One of the best collection of  roses to be seen in Enderby is that  at thc station home of Agent Burnham. The C. P. R. station building  at Enderby may not be the finest in  seekers.  The Press staff this week begs to  thank Mrs. F. H. Barnes and Station  Agent Barnum for beautiful bouquets of mosl perfect roses. While  many gardens were badly torn to  recent hailstorm,  recovery has been  rapid, and the warm days of the  present week have worked magic  with the flowers.  Mr. N. H. Kenny has furnished us  with a comparative- record of the  rainfall for the month of May,  1914 and 1915. In 1914 the total  precipitation 4or the" month was  1.12 inches, and in 1915, 2.88  inches. Last year we had 16 clear  days in May, 12 part clear and 3  cloudy; this year wc had 7 clear  days, 17 part clear ancl 7 cloudy.

He thinks where one German emigrated then five  are likely to do so at the close ot* the war, but  they "will not go to the United States, as there are  no lit lands open to them there. They, and numbers of emigrants of other European nationalities  and of thc United Kingdom,.will -make their way  to Canada and South America.  In regard to, lhe prospect of land values in  Canada, Mr. Curwood says, "they must increase,  and from now on they will .increase through  steady growth and development." Hc considers  thai a great deal of property had been over-sold  and lhal certain places had consequently suH'crcd  but he did not think this over-selling is so serious  as some people believe, who forget lhat "every  cily that ever became a city had to pass through  ils period of boom days."  Strenuous efforts arc being ihade throughout  the Dominion to encourage lhe production of all  com modi tics for which special demand may be  expected. The immediate prospects appear,  therefore, to be most favorable. Thc purchasing  power of thc fanners is largely increasing, and  the appeal of the Dominion and Provincial Governments to put more acreage under cultivation-  has met with a ready response.  THE ELEVENTH MONTH  A    S P-.ECJ A L  FLOUR  SALE  of the following brands:  YARSITY,  CENTENNIAL,  HUNGARIAN,  STRONG BAKER'S  JUNE 24,  1915  THE WEATHER AND SILOS  Perhaps in lhe memory of the "oldest inhabitant" there never has been so much wet weather  in May and June as wc have experienced this  year. Perhaps it will never be so wet again.  Perhaps���������������������������but what's the use. The main trouble,  we think, which has caused lhe partial loss of so  much of lhe early hay crop, lies in thc fact that  lhc season'was* fully three weeks in advance of  lhc ordinary year, hence lhe early alfalfa crop  ���������������������������was ready lo cul just when the la le spring rains  were full upon us. Be this as it may, there are  ��������������������������� few'farmers, who do not realize to their sorrow  lhal the loss to'their early hay crop will be very  heavy owing to the unusual amount of moisture  in the months of May and June.  Bul, at the same time il is -admitted thai every  year or I wo, similar condilions, though perhaps'  less severe, catch a great deal of thc early alfalfa  crop in lhis seclion.    For this reason many do  nol care to take the risk in alfalfa growing, preferring to slick to timothy.   However, there are  those who recognize lhc superior yield and food  qualities of alfalfa over timothy, and insist upon  growing it inspile of thc fact that the weather is  so unsteady in the early part of June, when thc  first crop is ready to cut.    They arc convinced,  however,  that there is a better way to handle  alfalfa than lo depend entirely upon lhc weather,  and   many   are   discussing   lhe   advisability   of  creeling solis on their, farms to take care of thc  early crop.    There would Ihen be no loss,  no  matter how unsettled lhc weather may be, for the  "fi rsTcul" coii lc rifcTsi 1 oetlTflrjttvalFCi intnTl^wdn Id"  nol have to be left in the field after being cut nor  left standing weeks aflcr it should be cut awaiting.favorable weather..  Every dairy expert, visiting thc Valley from  the Agricullural Department in'the'interest of  agriculture for lhc past Ihrcc or'four ycars has  insisted upon lhis one fact: lhat our farmers..in  the dairy business, even on a small scale, could  -ne-vvr���������������������������i^acdir4he-'"niaxiniuni-of---siiccevSS--witlioul  silos, and Ihey have urged repeatedly thai a silo  be erected in the dislrict lo demonstrate its'importance. Lillle nllcnlion has been paid to these  urgings and suggestions. Many are this year  wishing they had laken these experts more seriously and had gone inlo the mailer.of silo a year  or Iwo ago. If lhe losses sustained lhis season  by our alfalfa men induce the erection of a silo  or Iwo in lhe vicinity of Enderby, the lesson will  have been well learned.  EMIGRATION TO CANADA  A well-known. American writer, Mr. J. 0. Cur-  wood, has been making a study of conditions in  the West of Canada in relation to the war.    Me  considers that the war may result in an era of j  prosperity lo lhis counlry which has never been j  known before, not an era of estate boom but of j  development and growth  lhat will mean  practically a new Canada in the West.    "For some!  lime," he says, "Canada, if not really sick, has  been on the eve of a serious kind of sickness,  caused by lhe fact lhat her lown and city population  ancl  values  had   too  greatly  outrun  her  rural population and values."  In Mr. Cm-wood's judgment, the signing of  peace will lead to an immigration movement that  will amaze lhe world. Aflcr the Franco-German  war in 1870, 200,000 Germans settled in three of  Ten months aflcr Great Britain declared war  against Germany, the British public is just beginning to realize, what thoughtful observers have  known for some time, that if the war is to be won  by thc Allies it is mainly England's business; not  only on the sea, but on land.    Thus speaks thc  New York Evening Post in its eleventh month  summing up of thc European situation.    Lloyd  George's urgent appeal to the nation, it continues,  is  more  panicky  than  the  situation  warrants,  probably more disturbed than that statesman is  at heart.   But thc fervent Lloyd George rhetoric,  coupled with the fact of Russian collapse in Galicia, must make it plain to the English nation  how serious is thc problem that confronts it. Thc  moral effect of the recapture of Przemysl is unmistakable when an English newspaper���������������������������even if  it is lhc Daily Mail���������������������������can write thai "the contest  if now stopped would be in favor of thc Austro  German alliance.'   This may or may not be true.  Whal is certainly not true is the Mail's statement  lhat 'this war is not a British war primarily, and  our gallant ally across the Channel must always  figure as the senior partner in the enterprise.'   It  is England whom Germany rcgiirds as her archenemy from  thc beginning*,-" and it is England  whom the facts in the war have now'made lhe  leader in the fight.   She has hitherto borne the  brunt of the financial problems'.of the Allies, and  she has won the war of the Allies on thc sea. She  will now have to take over the heaviest part of  the work, or surely asjieavy a part as France, on  land.    For, as the situation is today among thc  Allies, the Russians have spent themselves for  some lime to come, thc French have given prclt3  nearl}-* to. thc limit of Iheir powers, and from  England' must come primarily the millions of  troops to win th.e contest, if it is to be won at all.  Once lhis fact is recognized, it is possible to estimate the full meaning of the Austro-Gcrman victory in Galicia.   Important as its direct military  results may prove to be to thc Teuton cause, the  indirect results arc by.no means so serious for  thc cause of the Allies as they appear to be.   For,  primarily,  thc indirect effect  must be to spur  England to greater exertions, and, above all, to  count upon herself.    *    *    *    The English have  been   learning,   slowly,   after   the   traditional  fashion,  but  learning  neverIhelcss.

Today England knows that there  is such a thing as German resourcefulness, German wils, as one English writer puts it.    *    *    *  For what Germany is doing today is precisely opposite to whal she set out to do at the beginning  of the war.   Then thc aim was to settle France  swiftly and deal with Russia at leisure.    Today  the purpose is to settle Russia swiftly and deal  wilh lhc western Allies at leisure.   Germany began byr a Hacking i h"llie WcsIimd standi ng on the  defensive in lhe East.   She is now hitting oul in  the East and "standing pat" in the West.    Virtually, Germany has swapped horses while crossing lhe stream, a leal that argues brains as well  as preparation.  But aflcr giving to Germany all the.credit due  for lhe military feats accomplished, which the  bald facts will not pcrmil us to lose sight of, the  Evening Post concludes with these words: "In  Italy, as a mailer of fact, we find a fair index to  what lhc actual outlook is in Europe today. Let  il be recalled that Italy entered the war on May  20, when the full effects of thc German victory in  Galicia were perceptible; that she left the Triple  Alliance on May 4, some days aflcr Germany announced the shattering of thc Russian line in  Galicia. Italy may have received her price from  thc Allies, but what price could have induced her  to go in on thc losing side? So today Rumania  is bargaining wilh Russia; bul if the cause of the  Allies were on lhc decline, would there be any  bargaining a I all? The course pursued by Italy  and lhe run of scnlimcnt in thc Balkans indicates  lhal these nations, closer observers of events than  we can possibly be, have pretty well made up  their minds which way the ultimate decision'will  incline."

It is an  assertion of thc customer's place of supremacy  in relation between buyer and seller.  Any retailer who slights his customer is  committing, business suicide. The customer  wants those who serve him or her to use the  newspaper as a vehicle for their announcements  of goods or service.  This is the modern and right idea.

Strawberries: As compared with  1914 Salmon Arm, Armstrong, Nelson and Creston show increased  production of 100, 59, 25 and 20  per cent, respectively, while Vancouver Island, the Lower .Mainland  ancl Boundary points show decreases of 33, 50 and 15 per cent  respectively. Okanagan points  will have about the same as last  year except in thc immediate  vicinity of Enderby, where the hail  storm of June 12th utterly destroyed the crop of many gardens.  Celery: The area in celery has  decreased from about 70 acres last  year to 58 this year.  Plantings of other vegetables arc  reported slightly in excess, of last  year, and are reported in good condition.  Canneries  Present indications are that few  canneries will operate. This means  there will be a large amount of  fruit, previously used by the canneries ancl jam factories, to be disposed  of through  other  channels.

Scab and aphis injury is reported from all parts of the Province. Peach leaf-curl is bad in  the Okanagan, ancl. grasshoppers,  cutworms ancl caterpillars are reported injurious in several sections. As yet there is little fire-  blight showing.  In the - Northwestern States de-  creascsVnVhe~applc~crop-of from  10 to 40 per cent are reported.  The general opinion i.s that the production will fall between 80 ancl  85 per cent of thc 1914 crop. Thc  pear crop will be larger than in  1914.  Vegetables  Potatoes: All sections of B. C.  show a decided increase in the  acreage. Last year only 13,350  acres were reported, but the 1915  acreage will reach 15,000 acres.  The prospects for a good yield  are reported from all districts.  Onions: The acreage is slightly  greater than last year, totalling  about 440 acres. Good yields are  expected.  Cabbage: The acreage will be thc  same as last year; about 225 acres  are reported.  Tomatoes: All sections show a  decreased acreage This is due  probably lo many canning factories being closed. The 1915 acreage is reported to be 280, compared with 455 in 1914.  Beans: The same area of beans  is reported as in 1914.

The  electors array themselves against  the men in power instead .'of allying themselves with them, apparently believing that the government is one thing and they (the  electors) another.  The fact that. , each property  owner is as much(responsible for  the municipality's, condition as  the men elected to handle their  business seems to escape attention.  This point was forcefully drawn  attention to by City''Clerk Rosoman  in a circular fetter mailed to delinquent taxpayers the past week.  In urging these ratepayers to make  every effort lo pay up arrears before the end of June and thus  make a delinquent tax sale unnecessary, the .Clerk said, in part:  "Unless the liabilities of the cily  ���������������������������which have been accumulating  since the beginning of the year-arc  met at an early date, the creditors  arc certain to lake action in the  courts; in which case the City o  Enderby will be placed permanently on record as defaulting in  regard to its financial obligations;  and Jhis _will not.only, damagoJhc_  credit of the City as a corporation,  for years fo come, but will also impair land values, ancl, generally,  militate against the interests of  members of the corporation (i- c.  the property owners) individually,  and against the interests of all who  are in any way concerned in the  prosperity and progress of the  town."

A clear and concise presentation of conditions  as they exist is of extreme importance lo every  community. To attempt lo hide uncomfortable  facts only makes matters worse. In a recent  issue of System, that excellent magazine of business, llie manager of a large railroad is quoted as  saying: "The country grocer has an advantage  over us railroad men, because he has a neighborly wav of telling his customers about his busi-  ness. For example, hc promised to deliver some  bacon to our car this morning. He fell down;  he admitted it.   But he explained why he couldn't  ^makc^oodT-^Bill-Whcatlcy-sHiorse-brokcHls-lcg-  yestcrday.  so  Bill  couldn't  bring in   thc  bacon  from his farm.   But a lumber team that's going  ' round by Bill's will get lhc bacon and bring il lo  our camp tonight. He's laken us into his conli-  dence. We see why he didn't make good.

SUNSHINE SERMONS  Cheerful Guidance to a Happier. Healthier Life  By the Philosopher-Physician  GEORGE F. BUTLER, A. M., M. D.  All know that emanations are  constantly    passing    from    the  body,   Its   Impurities,   Its   dead  and waste matter, which nature  has no use for, and which she  Is    constantly    endeavoring    to  cast   off   by   the   pores   of   the  skin.    The  average   number of  these  for  each  square  Inch  of  the body Is estimated to be two  thousand five hundred, or seven  millions In all, making, if Joined  together, a canal    twenty-eight  miles long, which conducts from  the system    every    twenty-four  hours, In a state of sensible perspiration,     or     water     called  "sweat," or Insensible perspiration,,    called      "vapor,"   three  pounds and  a  half    from    one  person  In the ordinary occupations of life, and much more In  extraordinary callings.   The Insensible    perspiration  from    a  sleeper during the  night,  Is of  Itself  enough   to   taint  the   atmosphere of a whole room; and  It Is the breathing and rebreath-  Ing of an atmosphere thus contaminated    which    make*    the  night the time of attack of the  great majority of violent human  ailments;   It Is this which Area  the train of Impending disease  and which might have been deferred, If not   entirely   warded  off, if the sleeper* and the bed  chamber had been clean.   In addition to the excretion of    un--  clean or poisonous waste matter from the body, there may be  deposited   on   the   hands   and:  other portions of the body disease germs which may endanger  health.

The following letter was read:  Victoria, 9th June, 1915.  The City Clerk, Enderby, B.C.  Sir: Your communication of thc  26th ultimo, in reference to the indebtedness of the City of Enderby,  was received, and was laid "before  the Executive Council yesterday.  After very careful consideration,  I am instructed to say that thc Government cannot sec their way to  comply with your request that they  should come to your assistance,  cither by way of a loan or by  guaranteeing, for a time, the City's  indebtedness to the bank. Thc  condition outlined in your letter  is not peculiar to Enderby, but is  common to several of the nVuni-  cipalitics in thc Province. Similar  requests to that submitted by you  have been made to the Government,  but none of these has been acceded  to, as the'Government cannot see  their way to assume the liabilities  of the municipalities.  Thc Executive has no doubt that  the procedure outlined by you as to  thc vigorous means to be adopted  in'thc collection of thc taxes, with  Ihe receipts from the tax sale, and  the money saved by your retrenchment, will enable the city to meet  the existing conditions.  I am, Sir,'your obedient servant,  H. E. Younc,  Provincial  Secretary.

In thc first place, if his Butter  wrappers are neatly printed with his name ancl  tbe brand of the butter on thc label, the storekeepers can readily sell thc butter at 5c a pound  more than hc can get for butter wrapped in paper  that is not printed, and the butter-maker gets the  advantage in 5c a pound more for his butter from  thc merchant.  ' It is the duty of every butter maker to comply with the law in this ma Iter. Some butter  makers have only a cow or two, and make so little  butter that it docs not appear to them that .they  can afford to have their butter wraps printed.  They do not like the idea of having 500 or 1000  butter wraps on hand. To accommodate this  class of butter makers, Tlie Press has printed up  a quantity of "Custom" Butter Wraps. They arc  printed with the words "Fresh Dairy Butter" but  do not bear the name of thc maker. However,  these wrappers fill thc requirements of thc law  governing this point, and can be bought in small  quantities at thc rate of 50c a hundred in 100 or  50 lots.

J. L CRANE  AREAS SOWN TO WHEAT  Wheat   is   estimated    to  occupy  this year a total area of 12,806,000  acres, which is more by 1,002,500  acres,  or 14.8 p.c,  than  the  area  sown in Canada for 1914, and more  by 2,(502,100 acres, or 25 p.c, than  thc area harvested in 1014, thc area  sown   last" year   having   been   reduced   by  930,000  acres,  the  estimated   aggregate   of   total   failures  through   lhc  winter-killing of  fall  wheat (211,500 acres) and through  drought    affecting    spring    wheat  (728,100  acres).    Not  only is  the  wheal   area   this   year,   under   the  double   stimulus   of   patriotic   impulse  and   high   prices, 25  p.c in  excess of last year's harvested area  but it is also Ihe largest area ever  sown to wheal in Canada.   As previously   reported   the   area   to   hc  harvested   of   fall   sown   wheat  is  1,208,700 acres, the balance of 11,-  087,300   acres   having   been   sown  this spring.   Whilst every Province  shows   an   increase   in   the  wheat  area il is the three Northwest provinces which  preponderate in  the  nalional   effort    to    produce   more  wheal.     The   total   area   sown   to  wheat   in   these   provinces   is   11,-  059,700 acres, an increase over last  year's  harvested  area  of 2,324,300  acres, or 25 p.c.    Jn Manitoba the  area is 3,10(3,000 acres, an increase  of 21   p.c;  in Saskatchewan  it is  C,G42,100 acres, an increase of 24  p.c, and in Alberta it is 1,580,700  acres,    an    increase    of    35    p.c.  Rather more than half of the total  wheat   area   in   Canada   is  in   the  single   province  of  Saskatchewan.  Oats are estimated  to occupy a  total area in Canada of 11,427,000  acres, an increase over last year's  harvested  area of 1,365,500 acres,  or 13 p.c;  barley 1,518,400 acres,  as compared  with  1,405,600 acres  last   year;    rye    106,440  acres   as  against 111,280 acres, peas 180,470  acres, compared with 205,950 acres  and   mixed   grains   453,000   acres,  against   463,300   acres;    hay   ancl  clover   7,788,400  acres,  against  7,-  007,000   acres,   and   alfalfa   94,480  acres  against. 90,385  acres.  Measured in percentage of a  standard of 100 representing a full  crop, all the grain crops were reported on the" 1st of June as showing a high average, the points being as follows: Fall wheat 94,  spring wheat 96, oats and barley 92  rye 91, peas 93 and mixed grains  91. Hay and clover with 86, and  pasture and alfalfa with 87 are nol  so  good,  these  crops  having suff-  after selection to date of starting  work.  6. No families will be brought  at Government's or employer's expense.  7.

These   vacant  lots are often nothing more nor less  than nurseries and breeding places  for all kinds of weeds.   This is especially true of towns where large  areas adjoining have been subject  to    wild-cat    subdivisioning    and  have  roadways ploughed,  forming  lodging places for weeds which arc  allowed to grow unmolested. These  produce    countless    numbers    of  seeds, to be blown and scattered by  the winds over thc farms.   So far,  bulletins, articles and  advice pertaining to weed control have been  directed  to  farmers.    A  glance  al  the  conditions  found   in  mosl  of  our  cities   and   towns   will   prove  convincing that the farmer is not  entirely to blame in thc matter of  weed   seed   production   and   distribution.  In the West the weed inspectors  are being trained and instructed  along lines that will enable him to  assist the farmers in weed control,  while at the same time provision  by law is made to prevent any  farmer from allowing liis farm to  become a breeding place for weeds  and a menace.to his neighbors. In  most towns there are by-laws covering the weed problem, but too  often they are not enforced. Those  living in towns and cities should  certainly co-operate and do their  bit in the war against weeds. This  is an important matter and should  receive strict attention by every  town council. - In this connection,  thc City of Enderby has not been  backward, thev. streets being t kept  fairly clean. '.But owners of vacant,  lots have not ;been held to strict  account as they should be.
