JULY 29, 1915  HANDLING OF 1915 CROP  Judging Irom present indications, the various  branches of the Okanagan United-Growers Association arc going to have to lace serious dillicullies in handling the 1915 .crops oi' fruit and  produce. "And ii will require great patience and  tact on the part of the ollicers oi'- thc various organizations to keep thc crops moving and thc  members loyal lo their organization.    It is the  most dillicull of all ycars, from the tact .that the  markets arc sure to be overloaded owing to thc  over-production   in   other    well-organized   communities across the line, from which quarter will  come the strongest competition.    Coupled with  this is the fact of thc money shortage, which is  certain to have a tendency to keep the prices for  fruit, etc., much lower lhan in ordinary years.  These facts must bc!recognized by our growers  and producers in connection wilh their dealings  with thc Growers' Unions, and there must be a  coming together on,a solid basis of unity of interest. United we can stand, but if there comes  division, intrigue and disorganization will follow,  lo the detriment of all. Patience and a firm determination to stand back of the organization no  matter what conies, will in a large measure save  ihe,dayj'o.r Jhc .growers of the Valley. On the  olher hand, if flie growe rs then i"se 1 ves~ fair*"t"o  meet the requirements of lhc organization, and  become careless and indifferent to its success, the  results will be disastrous lo thc United Growers,  and to the growers individually.  In spite of the wonderful generalship and indomitable fighting of thc Germans in the present  war, when they have pitted against them the  armies of so many nations, their victories up to  the present lime have not been of great consequence in; the ultimate. True, we do not yet  know what the results will be in the great engagement in Poland now raging. It is now quite  probable that Warsaw will fall within a week, if  it has not already been evacuated by'the Russians. If. this is all that is gained by the Germans  in,the drive on Warsaw, while serious, it will not  be fa la 1. But if, in .addition to the capture of  Warsaw, a decisive defeat of the Russian army  is also achieved, thc prospects for Russia arc bad,  and thc assistance that the Allies will get from  lhat quarter in thc next six months will not be  of great consequence. It will enable thc Germans to release great numbers of troops to go  against Italy or thc French' and British on the  West.  Wc arc now closing the lirst year of thc war,  and there is every prospect that when the anniversary comes the Germans will have cleared thc  Russians out of Galicia and will hold the coal  fields of France and her great industrial centres,  all of Belgium and most of Poland���������������������������territory  which before thc war was the home of 20,000,000  people, together with the lichcst mineral districts in these sections of Europe. It will do us  no good to deny these successes and wc might as  well admit them.  But, on thc other hand, let us look upon what  Germany has lost. Thc close of thc first year of  war finds her stripped of every foreign colony.  Japan drove her out of Kiao-chau, her Pacific  possessions, and only last week her East African  territory was wrested from her by the British  troops under General Botha. Thus wc see, after  all the Kaiser's exhortations to Germany to look  to her future on and across thc ocean, the whole  colonial edifice, built up with such pains and at  such cost, has now crumbled lo lhc ground. It  marks for thc German people the frustration of  many fond hopes. Besides the actual loss of thc  Easf Africa colony, upon which she bad expended  so much treasure, there is the further bitter reflections that thc blow was dealt by the Boers,  now loyal British subjects.

GUARDING  AGAINST FOREST FIRES  The lasl weekly telegraphic reports received by  the" Minister of Lands, Victoria, concerning the  forest lire hazard were very encouraging, every  dislrict reporting several days of rain, accompanied by cool weather. As a result of the general rains which fell over lhc entire Province in  June and July, lhe lire hazard is less than during  a normal season, and virgin timber is rendered  safe until about August 1st. Thc few (lavs of drv  hot weather have, however, placed cut-over  lands and old burns in an inflammable condition,  and renders lhc extinguishment of any fires now  burning very dillicull and expensive. If drier  weather should continue for any considerable  period there is serious danger lhat such iires  would continue to smoulder until the green timber is in a condition lo burn, and warning is  given lo campers and men in the woods, to be  particularly careful and see lhat all fires are completely extinguished before leaving Ihem.  Herbert Corey, one of thc leading writers of  | America, who has spent many months in thc war  zone, writes as follows:  " "The "Canadian is Ihe best fighting man in the  European war." That statement is not based upon my  unsupported opinion. It is a composite of the statements of German and French and English ollicers.  The case might be built up as follows:  "Wc said at the beginning ol* the war that the 'old  English' were the best soldiers we met," said a German ollicer to mc. "Then the 'new English' came on.  They were better than the 'old English.'  "Thc Canadians arc 'the best fighting men in the  English army," said French ollicers who have had a  chance to watch them in action. "They are stubborn,  devilish, man-killing fighters. They hold a trench as  wel Uix s-t h c=J_n gl i slud o ,-lh cyui rc_f iu_,su pcrioi-in.indi-  SA VE MONEY-Buy your winter's fuel NOW.

WARSAW THE WEALTHY  The human plant is far more valuable lhan  any form of agriculture we can mention. Yet we  spend millions on new methods lo destroy human  life, bul nothing on its conservation.  If lhc German-Austrian armies succeed in capturing Warsaw, as now seems probable, it will be  a signal victory for lhc Teutons over the Russians  that cannot be minimized.  Warsaw is one of the most important cities in  Eastern Europe. Its history dates from thc Kith  century, though thc first castle was erected there  as early as thc 9th century, and Cassimir thc  Just is supposed to have fortified it in the 11th  century. It is situated on thc left bank of lhe  'Vistula, 387 miles by rail cast of Berlin, and 695  miles southwest of SI. Petersburg (Pelrograd.)  With its 800,000 population, its beautiful river,  its ample accommodations and its commerce, its  university and scientific societies, its palaces and  numerous important places of amusement, Warsaw is one of lhe most pleasant as well as one of  thc most animated cities in Eastern Europe. Also  from a military point of view it has great importance, being the chief stronghold for the defence of Poland. Connected as it is by six trunk  lines wilh Vienna, Kiev and Southwestern Russia,  Moscow, Petrograd, Danzig and Berlin, it is a  commercial  city surpassed  by. few  in  Eastern  Europe.

Racial ��������������������������� warfare between Slav  and German has been accepted as  an obvious fact since the war began, but few readers realize how  deep lhis racial hatred 7goes and  how Austria may, at any moment,  be confronted by a revolt of her  Slavic subjects. Geographically  the most important of the Slav  slates belonging lo lhc Austrian  Empire is the kingdom of Bohemia  and ils Czech (Bohemian) inhabitants arc continually al loggerheads with their German neighbors. Thc reasons for this slate of  things are made clear by the London Morning Post, which says:  "To explain this antagonism, it  is necessary to go back lo.Vhe  period of lhe Reformation, which  lc,d lo lhe Hussite wars. It was  John Huss, the Rector of the University of Prague (1392-1415), who  adopted the doctrine of John Wy-  clif.:"For two centuries the Czech  peasants repelled successfully a  number of invasions of the German and Hungarian papal armies,  which ravaged Bohemia' in the  same way as their decendanls  have done- in Belgium and Servia.  But the odds were too great. Half  Europe was in arms against Bohemia, and the martyrdom of its  population began with thc defeat  of the Bohemians in the Battle of  -White Mountains (1620). -y  ,' "Two-thirds of the population  were cither exterminated or driven  abroad, and many emigrants settled in England, where they founded the Moravian Church."  "VThosc who remained "at home,  says the Posl, elected the ancestors  of. the present Austrian. Emperor to  thc throne of Bohemia. S "A mistake for which they had and still  have to* pay dearly; because thc  Hapsburgs broke the . contracts  made with the^Czech nation... The  Hapsburgs' had.'only one,:thought*:  to destroy the glory of Bohemia,  to.stille the.culture of the",Czechs,  and to kill their language, in .which  Chclcicky'^'and--, other" ~. Bohemians  preached To The world universal  peace,.equal rights for all men a*nd  religious liberty."   ,        _ -,  --.Centuries of Germanization have  not deprived the Czech of his" individuality.' "This individuality of  the  Czechs is 'a  characteristic of  Ihe   peasantry   of   Bohemia,   who,  following  old   traditions,   devised  a"  distinctive   style   of   arranging  Iheir   homes   and- their   costumes.  They have their own poetry, music  dances,   customs   and^ ceremonies,  all  of  which  way  be   considered  as  the  artistic  side . of  Bohemian  peasant culture.    Thc Czechs look  now  with  pride   upon   the   traditional art of- their peasants, seeing  ih it many links with the various  branches of the Slavonic race.  The Post'foresees the utter defeat  of Ihe two Kiasers and prophesisies  -Ihe���������������������������crect ion=^o ������������������=_a n=i nd epen d en L  kingdom' of Bohemia."  has its own dangers which it'must  avoid by taking thought and determined action in the light of this  thought. If an autocratic aristocracy has been a heavy burden upon  the German people, it al least has  made for organized, unified community effort. If international  peril has imposed or seemed to  impose lhe staggering weight of  armies, il also has forced organized  unified effort. And if we in  America happily lack those influences we must sec to it that we do  not lake advantage of Iheir absence  lo shirk lhc good they have accomplished while preoccupied  with the evil.' Americans have  shown genius for organization, but  it has been in, the sphere of private  profit and often counter to the  public good. But we need lo put  away the ingenuous notion of some  of our leaders of,thought and action that we can return to the primitive individualism of the past. The  way lo cure the evils of.organization is by. more organization,, and  the progress of .this country lies  along the pathway of a more highly  organized community life."  KITCHENER'S SOLEMN CALL--  WAR IN ITS SECOND STAGE,  Thus far all predictions and calculations in connection wilh. the  war have failed to materialize, and  it is just possible.this summing up  will, be as far cstray as any that  have been made. However, it is  interesting to recall that General  Joffre, the great French commander, is reported as saying that the  war falls into three parts: the first  was the German offensive last fall  which was- slopped at thc Marne;  the second is still in progress, but  is said to be. about half- over, and  consists of what is virtually a  siege of Germany, .insofar as the  west. is .. concerned. The third  stage, -according", to-the reported  belief of the -French, commander,  will** be comparatiyely brief.1,1 From  this* it-is, to: be assumed- that-jn his  opinion ��������������������������� Germany-% vyill ���������������������������"! have ,*so  .weakened herseff-Aw men and' munitions by ;heii.fighting on.-the east-  ern,front and"hc"i\_espcrate sorties  in the west" that .when .the final  allied assault takes place she will  be quickly beaten'. *"'-- '  -   "**  Concluding his recent speech in  the House of Commons Lord Kitchener spoke thus- solemnly: "It  has been well said lhal in every  man's life there is one supreme'  hour lo which all his earlier experiences move and from which all  future results may be reckoned,  For every individual Briton, as  well as our national existence, lhe  solemn hour is now. striking.

HENDRICKSON, Proprietor  Next the Fulton Block, Enderby  A dispatch recently told of Berlin voting $08,000,000 for civic improvements which are now being  carried on quietly and systematically inspitc of the war, and this  leads the Chicago Tribune to draw  lhis lesson: "We may disapprove  or detest lhe use Germany is making of her organized might. We  must confront thc fact, nevertheless  lhat whether il is perverted and  abused or nol, it represents Ihe  most tremendous force in lhc  world today in peace not less than  in war, and thai the progress of  our own nation as of all civilized  mankind lies 'in the development  of organized community life.' Wc  cannot hold our place, wc cannot  go forward by the methods of thc  frontier. Wc, too, arc now of the  centre, in thc main stream, and we  must ourselves develop through  study, forlhoughl, science, self-  sacrifice, and self-control a fully  organized community.  "If we do not wc shall fall behind  and eventually go down as the unready and unorganized always  must godown before the organized.

I was on guard  on thc port side of the promenade  deck.    The Destroyer on the starboard  side  suddenly  raced--across  our bows and wc gave a yelp and  went  hard  lo  the starboard.

After pointing out the  friendly form of thc note the Lokal  Anzejgcr says: "After the previous  negotiations, thc confidence is justified  that  Germany will  continue  to employ her valuable submarine  weapon,   over   which   thc   present  difference of opinion has arisen, in  a   manner  useful   to  us  and   least  damaging   for   neutrals.     We   had  within international law, although  they, may ��������������������������� involve "a .new application of principles, and argues that  is is proper to await a judicial interpretation. The note, in the  most courteous language, holds  that Great Britain's action is justified by the decisions of the Uniled  Slates supreme court in cases  arising during thc civil war. Any  differences with the Uniled Slates  over what is termed lhe new application of principles arc held to  be proper for submission to judicial settlement.  GETTING UP TO THE COW  An average good cow will  change three tons of hay and one  ton of grain inlo 300 pounds of  butter, 6,500 pounds of skim milk,  one calf and 6 Ions of manure during about eight months.  Granting that lhe skim milk, the  calf and thc manure, pay for all  the work, thc 300 pounds of butter  is the pay for the feed.  This butter produced during thc  winter will bring an income of  about $90.  The three tons of hay and one  ton of grain-would have to sell at a  pretty high price to bring any such  income. In ordinary years and  on the average market, -^O for the  one ton of grain, and 83(5 for the  three tons of hay, or a total of S5G,  is considered to be about "what this  feed would bring.  According to investigations a  dairy cow will recover for human  food aboul 25 per cent, of thc dry  digestible matter consumed; a hog  about 15 per cent., and a steer  about 3 percent.  This, together with the fact that  a good dairy cow will return 82  worlh of produce for every 81  worth of feed consumed, should  cause farmers working expensive  land and raising expensive feed to  carefully study the various phases  of lhe work of the dairy cow.  The profits of a dairy cow can  be anticipated and realized with a  greater degree of surety than in  any other one phase of farming.  . A manure crop. of grain, and a  high price for the same may be  anticipated,.but seasons and conditions of- market may be unfavorable Feed for cows and a good  steady market, are as sure as anything can be in this world-of-production.      The returns  are quick.  The feed may.be fed to the cow  and thc product realized on, even  during the same day. This avoids  credits at the store and in thc  bank. Thus thc dairyman may be  independent, and able lo pay his  debts as fast as he contracts them.
