Thc shirts aud socks made in Enderby go direct to headquarters at  Toronto, and are not used for sol-  action, only for those in  or convalescent after an  injury.  INFORMATION FOR RECRUITS  In view of the recruiting which  is in progress at present throughout the Province, the Victoria Colonist thus answers a few questions  which are considered by those  who 'contemplate entering the service:  1.

This   retreat,   in    the    opinion   of ���������������������������  London military critics, is almost  entirely  due  lo  the  battle  in  the _.

JULY J, 1915  NO TIME TO COMPLAIN  It would be Jolly for us to say lhat thc producers of lhc Northern Okanagan have not been  sorely hit by the weather conditions of the past  monlh and a half.   The unusual amount of rain,  coining as it has upon the grass and fruit crops  , which   were fully   three  weeks  in   advance of  normal seasons, has seriously injured both, and  there is no������������������ denying thai thc loss lo many will be  severely fell, and that lhc dislrict as a whole will  feci thc cll'ects more or less upon all branches of  business.   Bul after admitting this, and accepting  lhc fact in ils worst light, there is slill very little  in it all to warrant complaint.   Complaint, when  circumstances cannot be helped thereby, is of ho  service���������������������������useless.   There are brighter days ahead,  which wc musl prepare for in the shadow.   Wc  of the Okanagan are especially favored.    True,  we have our troubles, but  Ihcy arc little ones  compared lo those of oilier communities.    Wc  can and are making good in the Okanagan.   If,  for a time, we chased after lhe pot of gold in the  rainbow of a really boom, wc did nothing out of  the ordinary.    And, let U be said, we made a  good, run for il anyway.   Bul wc are not looking  for these rainbow pots of gold anymore.   We are  focusing upon pots ol  potatoes jusl now���������������������������and  arc nol ashamed o' il.   When lhc year runs out  we may nol find ourselves wilh so many fortunes  coming to meet us���������������������������just around ,the corner���������������������������bul  -wc*^wilUha-vc^inoi-_-oi^lhc--rcaUbi-()w-n-brca(Uof-  honesly of purpose and good will on lhe table.  According to a recent announcement in the  House of Commons, the total British casualties  on land since the beginning of the war up to May  31st amounted lo 258,000, or an average, say, of  1,000 a day for thc forty weeks. The first general  summary of British losses as compiled from the  lists up to Sept. 7lh, for two and a half weeks of  war, gave total casualties of 18,783, or an average of a lillle over 7,000 a week. These first 16  days included the disastrous battle of Mons, and  thc hurried retreat before Von Kluck's overr  whelming forces, to the beginning of the battle  of the Manic. Yet the average, it will be noticed,  is not much higher than for the entire course of  the war, showing lhat trench-fighling, though un-  dramatic and barren of great results, may be as  costly as the old-fashioned fighting in the open.  In the beginning this would not seem to have  been the case. For in February, Premier Asquith  announced that up to the 4th of that month thc  casualties were about 104,000. .In'other'words,  during the twenty-one ancl a half weeks after the  beginning of lhe bailie of lhe Marne thc weekly  average was about 4,000; and these would include the captures around Antwerp and thc terrific fighting around Ypres in November.. .In  April, a second ollicial statement gave llie .losses  up to thc 11 Ih of that month as 139,000, or since  February 4th; a weekly average of something  less than 4,000; yet this period included the assault on Ncuve Chapclle and'lhc furious counterattacks thai followed.  Bul lhe figures given out early in June show an  extraordinary increase.. If lhe losses on April'11  were 139,000, and on May.31 si were 258,000,. it  would mean that the casualties for, scvcii weeks  were nearly 120,000, or a weekly average of 17,-  000, four times as heavy as during thc battles of  lhe Manic, the Aisne, and Ypres, two and ii half  times as heavy as during lhe retreat from Mons.  These figures show plainly that lhc British  have been under heavy pressure in Flanders, and,  in the second place, that our losses have been  high in the Dardanelles. These figures also explain the recent unrest owing,to thc lack of high  explosives. Without, them it, is not' only impossible to break through;.,it is fearfully expensive merely to hold the line.'-*'';'  For Germany's losses Aye have lhc Prussian  lists, which up tp a few weeks ago arc reported  to have run close to 1,400,000 names, Adding to  these figures the casualties for .tlie south German states and Austria, and-wc have,-in round  numbers, something"'-over 2,000,000 of the. Teuton troops accounted,for-in killed, wounded and  prisoners. To offset this, the enemy claims to  have:-! Russian .^prisoners, 1,115,000; French,  254,000;' Belgians,- 40,000; Servians, 50,000; and  British.24,000,"or altogether, 1,483,000 prisoners  of the Allies.  How much longer this fiendish slaughter can  continue is a question demanding serious thought  and one that cannot be pushed aside. War today  is simply a question of ammunition against men.  Neither side can go up against thc tremendous  odds without suffering appalling consequences.

Perhaps all cannol go lo lhe front, but  there arc oilier duties quite as essential and quite  as honorable in lhe service of the Empire. And il  should be understood, thai men doing internment  duly in lhe camps are as much in lhc seryice of  their country as lhc men in lhc trenches'a! the  fronI. There is a pressing call from Vernon, wc  understand, for more men to do iiilernnicnt duty,  and lhis call is being ignored by men who could  be of service. Perhaps few of these men could,  if .they would, get a chance to go to llie front, but  all could be of service to the home guard in lhe  internment camp and thus relieve more able-  bodied men for duties elsewhere. Men thus cm-  ployed would be. of much greater service lo the  Empire, and far more contented themselves,  lhan lo continue the enforced idleness thai so  many arc suffering in lhe home community.

The original idea  was born in.Japan, carried lo Paris where apple  trees were grown in flower'pots, and fond lovers  acquired lhc habit of sending peaches on thc  tree to fair dames. One writer says that an  orchard of cherry trees, all three feet high, covered with white or red wilh fruit is a sight to  ghulden your heart for a year. New Zealand  first look the iiiatreirTip asTf^  shipping a perfect fruit to London, and now  Ulah is doing thc same. Dwarf fruit trees have  come to slay. 11 is more than a fad. And the  orchardisl who gets in at the start is going to  make a winning.  The advantages of dwarf fruit trees arc these���������������������������  a Iree a year old bears I'ruil; the trees being so  small that you can look down all over it, allows  you to pick oil' the imperfect specimens, and also  properly spray il,' preventing scale and other  destroying parasites. The quick,returns it gives  make it especially desirable in a new country.  For school gardens or as an ornament and asset  to villiage homes it is superb. In planting the  standard orchard you count on forty trees to  an acre. Wilh dwarf trees you plant a thousand  to an acre and cultivate them as you do corn.  Most of lhe.apples on an average standard tree  arc scrubby and imperfect. A very little work  and your banlam tree gives you every apple perfect. Apples lhat weigh a pound arc the regulation yield. Acre for acre the dwarf orchard will  heal/the standard orchard in profit-bringing  I'ruil, with less loss to lhe trees by Winter-killing  and less risk to the i'ruil from hail and wind and  olher summer complaints which all orchardisls  must endure and enjoy.

Her  own territory is still practically  unscathed. In the process she has  lost heavily, but she has still the  resources, not of Germany alone,  but of a vast area containing more  than 100,000,000 souls.  "On the other hand, the Allies  have stayed the Austro-German  onset, and they have command of  the sea, which ih the long run will  tell even more heavily in their  favor.

"You needn't think I'm goin' to rig up for that affair,  If it's a dress suit party," says he, I won't be there."  But Ma,.she don't say a word/she's heard that tale before.

In the first place, if his Butter  wrappers arc neatly printed wilh his name and  thc brand of lhe butler on the label, thc 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 thc  advantage in 5c a pound more for his butter from  thc merchant.  11 is thc duty of every butter maker to comply with the law in this matter. Sonic butter  makers have only a cow or two, and make so little  butter that it does not appear to them that they  can afford to have their butter wraps printed.  Thev do not like lhc idea of having 500 or 1000  butler wraps on hand. To accommodate this  class of butler makers, The Press has printed up  a quantity of "Custom" Butter Wraps: They are  printed with thc words "Fresh Dairy Butter" but  do not bear the name of the mak_r. How,ever,  these wrappers fill thc requirements of thc law  governing this point, and can be bought in small  quantities at the rate of 50c a hundred in 100 or  50 lots.

The ties are described in thc  words of thc agents in India as being "an all-round good lot, well cut  and of full dimensions ancl well  creosoted." The Agent General  goes on to say that he has been requested to convey the thanks of the  railway board in London to the  government of British Columbia  for undertaking the inspection and  despatch of the ties'.  It will be remembered that this  order was secured for the province  as ,a result of strenuous efforts on  THE NEW MUNITIONS BILL  The new Munitions Bill passed  by the House of Commons, makes  strikes and lockouts illegal; provides for compulsory arbitration;  limits the profits of employers;  gives power to fine "slackers";  creates a voluntary army of workmen pledged, to go wherever they  are wanted; and contains other  provisions which will give the  Minister full power to carry out  the plans he has devised to develop  the production of munitions.  After emphasizing the absolute  necessity of vast supplies of guns  and ammunition, ��������������������������� which he described as the great essential - of  victory, the minister announced  that, he had sent David Alfred  Thomas, managing director of the  great colliery company in South  Wales, and known as the British  Coal King, to represent the Munitions Department in., the United  States   and    Canada.

Lake, and playing havoc  with the business district of Red  CJi-^th?! *V_y __ "1C Sale resulted  washout"  HONESTY THE ONLY POLICY  William Woodhead, president of  the Associated Advertising Clubs  of thc World, at a recent convention of thc club in Chicago, gave  these clear-cut sentences as to thc  best  kind of advertising:  Honesty is not simply the best  policy���������������������������it is the only policy���������������������������and  the man who docs not recognize  this is either a knave or a fool.  The awakened business conscience is a constructive conscience, not like the definition of  the boy who said that conscience  is the thing that makes you sorry  when you are found out.  Co-operation, not competition, is  the new force in business.  The greatest evil in the business  world is the grafter, the fakir,  and the quack.  The only way to make advertising effective is tp make it believable.  Strange as it may seeni, there  are still men who look upon advertising as an experiment. It is  if the experience of hundreds of  successful firms proves nothing.  in a bad washout-of the-Natural  Gas Company's.main, which cut off  the supply in Calgary, causing  great inconvenience to householders and partially tying up  many, industries. Thc C.P.R. line  was washed out to the west and  south of Calgary, causing damage  which took some 48 hours to repair. The storm took-the-form of  a cyclone in some districts, doing  great damage to property wilhin  its path. >  NO BONUS FOR BOY BABIES  A report has gone abroad amongst  the women of the country that a  bonus- would be given for every  boy baby born during the continuance of the war.

J. E. CRANE  In 1914 Canada produced approximately 934,700 tons of wood  pulp in her 60 active pulp mills.  This i.s an increase of over 9 percent from the production of 1913.  Of this total quantity almost 70 per  cent was ground-wood pulp, produced by the mechanical process.  j The remainder was chemical fibre  or cellulose, produced by the sulphite, sulphate and soda processes  in the order of their importance.  The manufacture of chemical  fibre is increasing more rapidly  than that of ground-wood pulp.  Thc increase in the case of chemical fibre from 1913 lo 191. was 14  per cent Avhile that of ground-  wood pulp was 9.4 per cent.  This increase in the quantity of  chemical pulp made is an advantage to Canada as it permits the use  of a wider range of timber trees,  thus developing more fully our  Canadian forests. It is also nearly  three times as valuable as wood-  pulp ancl leaves that much more  money in the country.  The introduction of the sulphate  or krafl process for thc manufacture of coarse, strong, dark-  colored pulp used for wrapping  and similar papers has permitted  thc use of jack pine and other so-  called inferior pulpwoods in a  greater proportion than had before  been possible.  ���������������������������< In spite of the widespread disturbances to industry in general  caused by the outbreak of war in  the latter part of thc year, the consumption of pulp~\vood in Canadian  mills showed an increase of 10.4  per cent in 1914. The pulp industry has steadily increased in importance since its establishment in  Canada about 35 years ago. Since  1910 thc consumption of wood for  this purpose has increased from  598,487 cords in 1910 to 1,224,370  cords in 1914, an increase of 104'C  per cent, or over 2G per cent per  annum.  Tlie importance of the industry  is shown by the fact that thc value  of the pulpwood used in Canadian  mills in 1914 was .8,089,808, while  lhe value of pulpwood exported  raw in the log was $0,080,490, a  total of 814,770,358. The proportion of pulpwood manufactured in  Canada to thai exported raw is  sleadily increasing.  Quebec is the most important  pulp producing province, with 23  active firms in 1914 out of a total  of 49 for Canada, producing over  55 per cent of the total quantity of  pulp. Ontario, British Columbia,  New Brunswick and Nova Scotia  are Ihe remaining pulp-producing  provinces in the order of their  importance.  in holding it and beat off a counter attack.  "Thc following day we were successful in firmly establishing ourselves, and that night ��������������������������� the enemy  attacked but we mowed them down  wilh machine guns. The action on  the first night lasted until daylight.  This action was the worst I have  experienced. We had been shelled  before, but nothing to mention. I  will never forget the sights I witnessed on that night, nor on the  two nights following. I had many  narrow escapes. The next day I  found a-big bole in my tunic. One  shell fell right in the trench, killed  five men and wounded eleven. The  same shell smashed one of our  guns. I was only about 10 feet  away and although covered with  debris was unhurt.  "When we charged for the second trench the Germans never  wailed although their artillery  played on us all the time and if  they had only stood their ground  would undoubtedy have beaten us,  but our chaps charged at them  with such a roar that they got  frightened and skidoocd. I was in  this charge, ancl an officer and a  dozen men alongside of mc were  killed. The scene which greeted  our eyes in the capture of thc  trench was awful. The stench of  the dead bodies nauseated us. The  Germans were piled on top of one  another. Many had crawled into  the dugouts ancl died. But. the  worst scene of all was two dead  French girls aged about 18 and  20. The Germans had apparently  captured them ��������������������������� and had finally  killed them.  "You will wonder how I felt going through the action. Well, F  never had the slightest fear of being hit: all I wanted was to get at  the Germans. That was the uppermost thought. I was never more  cool or collected in my life. Previous to the fight I was nervous  and after the tight I was shaking  all over.  "I can hardly describe thc dreadful havoc wrought by thc guns,  nor thc terrible din. which thcy  madc. You, would imagine that no  one could live through it. It was a  terrible sight to sec the wounded  crawl away; .some .with a leg shot  off. The 30th (original numbering)  boys showed up well and of those  engaged 75 per cent were lost.  Only 18 out of 34 of the machine  gun section returned. Out of the  450 men of the 15th Battalion only  150 returned."
