And hc has  the' best trained field fighting machine thc world  captured; from the enemy last February, wlicn it has ever seen. In the West the Allies are up  was officially stated that they had capturcd-from.j against .a harder proposition than thc Germans  thc Germans the Souain district ancl were north and Austrians had to tackle in thc Eastern iroht,  of Ville sur Tourbe. The Germans for most of .and it would not be wise to expect too much of  the summer have put forth their best efforts to the French and British troops, gallant as they are  get poscssion of thc Chalons-Verdun road just to  the south of these positions and in these efforts  and supplied with all thc ammunition their guns  can handle.   They must go slowly to bc safe.   It  must have retaken Souain and other positions may take a year or two, and perhaps longer lo  which the French are now reoccupying.    Thc get the enemy out of Belgium.  I vi wind ������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������  It now seems to bc definitely settled that thc      credit loan which thc British-French commission  they'have also taken possession of Hulluch, an .has been negotiating in New York for the past  " ���������������������������--���������������������������       - e cast side of the LaBassc' 1'e.w* weeks will be $500,000,000, instead ot one  British troops, as long ago as April, bombarded  Loos but did not get possession of it. The report  says the village of'Loos has now been taken, and  important point on the  to Lens road.  It will be a day or two before one can tell how  much, the Allies .have gained in their offensive, or  how important the positions taken. But there is  no question about the importance of the general  moveme.it. It was apparently long planned and  worked out well. Coming at this time, in the face  of the Russian failure to hold the enemy out of  Poland, and in view of the diplomatic failure ol  the Allies in their efforts to induce the Balkan  states to enter the arena against the Central  powers, the movement is of the utmost value, not  only in a military sense but political as well. If  the Allies can hold.the ground taken, and push  forward to any great extent they will soon drive  a wedge into the German lines that must sooner  or later split them.   It would be unwise, however,  to conclude that this important forward move-1000,000.  billion, the amouni asked for, and which at first  seemed probable. One reason given for the reduc-  liori in the amount is said to bc owing toy the  heavy deficit in the United States treasury  receipts, said to be at the rate of $545,000 a day,  or $170,000,000 a year. It is intimated by Eugene  Hector, a financial wTiler in the Chicago Tribune,  that within three months it will be necessary Tor  the U. S.��������������������������� Government to raise a loan of $200,000,-  000 to provide for ordinary expenditures and a  suitable working balance. Then if the talk of  bringing the army and navy to the state of preparedness-materializes into action, there will be  required at least $300,000,000 more, so that the  banks and investors of the United States' are  looking forward to being called on within the  next six months to lend the United States $500,-  Wonder Where He Got His Cue  "Old Man" Simpson, in his Victoria family journal, gets sarcastic,,  and we wonder-if-hc-heard from  thc internment camp at Vernon  when he remarked: "If the thieves  who buncoed thc Government on  horses, bandages, shoes and other  army supplies arc to be allowed to  retire as gentlemen, then we want  to get into the business. It is a nice  thing to bc a gentleman and a thief  at the same time."  // Pays to Advertise  Every merchant of Armslrong is  a firm believer in the efficacy of  prayer and printer's ink, and all of  them use liberal space in their local.  paper. Some of them go farther,  and find it pays them to advertise  in thc adjoining town -Ideal paper.  As a result, the Armstrong Advertiser says: -Several Enderby ladies  were in town shopping on Saturday  which speaks well for the quality  of the service in our local stores."

SEPTEMBER 30, 1915  CO-OPERATION AND PLAYING AT IT  Thc more wc learn about co-operation, and the  more wc read about how completely successful  thc system operates.in olher localities where thc  farmers enter inlo il in the true spirit of co-opcra-  lion, the more convinced are wc that, thus far in  lhc Okanagan wc 1-avcbccn only playing at it. In  his book "on "How Farmers Co-Operate and  Double Profits," Clarence Poc'hints al the many  means of co-operation in vogue in localities thai  have successfully developed lhc.spirit of working  together for thc good of all when hc asks:  "Arc you a member of a farmers' club or local  union or grange or inslilulc? Is your boy in lhc  corn clubhand your girl in lhc girls' canning club?  Is your wife one of the United Farm Women, or  a member of the Woman's Farmers Institute?  Arc you co-operating wilh your neighbors educationally by supporting local taxation for schools?  Arc you"always ready to do your part when, the  neighbors plan a Sunday school picnic or a  national holiday celebration or a baseball team  or a "big day" at the neighborhood school? And  finally, arc you co-operating wilh your neighbors  in the settlement of disputes by arbitration���������������������������cooperation which eliminates the terrific expense of j  unnecessary middlemen-lawyers? This tenth I  item rcallv represents an illustration of 'the last  shall bc first and the first shall be last,' for the  very first step in business co-operation must frequently be Ihe organization of farmers along  Vsocia PI iifcsV 11nirtqiia1 ly^truerHiowcvcrr-lha I  without some successful business feature about  ninelv-ninc farmers' clubs out of a hundred fail.  Thc ihing lo do is to try to get the organization  ���������������������������md Ihen give if something to do���������������������������or belter still,  have something definite for it to do from the very  beginning.  In the matter of suggestions for making, a  farmers'' club'a success, the author of "How  FaiMncM\s-C.o-{)peraleVntHlJ^(mbl(iiProlHs/J_ii.o.tc.s.  lhe manner of organization, needed committees,  plans for a rural census or survey, and scls forth  some practical business activities of farmers'  clubs, and lells of lhe activities of some of the  women's organizations.- In many chapters.of lhe  book Mr. Poe emphasizes thc importance of  adopting simple, bul sullicienl, rules and regulations which should be lived up to; he also shows  llie great importance of high-quality 'products  and lhe need for having legal, binding contracts  and proper auditing of Ihe books. Another point  which tlie author brings out strongly is the fact  lhal education and home ownership for the only  foundation for successful co-operation or a satisfying rural life. "Because tenancy and ignorance exist in your neighborhood," he argues, "i.s  nol a reason for shirking lhc battle, but only for  making more determined' effort not only to get  co-opera lion, bul lo promote education and home  ownership."  The war has brought and is yet to bring much  changed conditions. These wc must face, not  run away from. To meet 'Ihem, and meet them  bravely, i.s every man's duty. To make the best  of them there must he a closer co-operation, a  saner coming together. Fach musl work for lhe  benefit of all. No use looking elsewhere for fields  lhal are greener���������������������������-lhere are none. No use seeking  better neighbors wilh whom to co-operate���������������������������they  may nol exist.  If'we are to judge by the many exchanges  received, ancl the tone of the press of Canada as a  whole, the great effort of the editors of the  Dominion is to aid and foster the true British  spirit in lhe people of Canada, and to assist every  patriotic movement in any way looking to the  raising of funds for and in aid of the men at the  front and to relieve the distress and make lighter  the load to be borne by those dependent upon the  men who'have and are enlisting. So far as has  been noted, there has not been anything of a  disloyal nature voiced by a newspaper in Canada,  and nothing has occurred-to shake lhc confidence  of cacti newspaper in all. Naturally, all have not  been able lo sec alike in matters of '"politics and  the general handling.of military mailers by the  men at the head of the Militia Department, but all  have shown an honesty of purpose in presenting  lo Iheir readers the news from lhe front and in  commenting thereon. In view of lhis, there has  been considerable surprise and not a little wcll-  descrved criticism, at thc recent order' from lhc  Postmaster General's Department regarding the  censoring of the newspapers. Thc Fnancial Post,  one of the most conservative papers published in  Canada, voices the opinion of thc press of Canada  generally when it savs, in its issue of September  18th:  "Thc general manager of the Canalian Postal system,  Or. Coulter, is once more attacking the'newspapers-of  Canada. He has issued some more regulations which  he will undoubtedly be compelled to withdraw. These  new regulations cast a most serious relleclion on thc  whole press of Canada, for they place lhe editors  under suspicion of disloyalty. As far as can be  learned, the order has gone forth that all letters addressed to Canadian nwspapcrs, or men employed on  Ihem, from the United States arid other foreign countries, arc lo bc opened by the poslmasters and carefully examined or read. If a clerk suspects Ihcsccon-  lents to bc .seditious, he is to send the matter at once  lo Ottawa, where, no doubt, the Department of Justice  will know how to deal with editors working in thc  interest of Ihe Germans. The Printer and Publisher,  which spcciali7.es on news for and voices the opinions  of newspaper publishers, was refused a copy of the  order and all information as lo thc why and wherefore; in fact, thc editor-was told thai thc mailer musl  bc kept very quiet. "We are, therefore, at a disadvantage in discussing the subject, but apparently  detailed instructions as to methods to be pursued  have nol yel been issued.  "The privileges of the press have apparently  bothered thc Deputy Postmaster-General ever since  his advent to lhe Department. For years he has  worried the newspapers and their readers with extraordinary and often impractical"! egulations and rulings  "Many of his pet schemes for controlling thc press  have been failures, simply because, thc readers, who  arc the people of Canada, woull not "stand for them.  Naturally the conclusion of a man like lhis is apt to  be inaccurate. * * * It may bc necessary for thc  press to tell some very nasty truths, and lo contradict  or expose nominally great men, in the public interest,  before this war is over. If post oflice ollicials have  powers over lhe press, which they are constantly  seeking, a very serious national situation may bc  created. Newspaper writers have often truer sources  of information and a better capacity lo grasp and  understand situations than cabinet ministers.  Buy your Flour while  the prices are low!

No detailed report has yet been  received in Ottawa in regard.to-lhc matter.  It cannol bc claimed lhat the suppression of the  facts in connection with thc "withdrawal" of  Major Clarke is either for military or strategic  reasons. Major Clarke was paymaster. He was  handling public funds. 11 is currently reported  that many thousands of dollars arc unaccounted  for���������������������������some say $00,000. With the disappearance  of this large sum of public money, Major Clarke  has been allowed to "withdraw," "disappear."  The correspondent of the Vancouver Province is  authorized to stale thai Major Perry has taken  over the command in view of lhc "resignation" of  Major Clarke. It is reported that Major Clarke  escaped from Vernon by auto and that hc is in  hiding some place across the border. Major  Clarke was handling lhc money of the people of  Canada, and lhe people of Canada have a right to  know the facts���������������������������whether reports are true or false.

TheyVlo not liketheidea of having 500 or 1000  butter 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 the words "Fresh Dairy Butter" but  do not bear the name. pf. the maker. However,  these wrappers fill the requirements of the law  governing this point, and can be-bought in small  quantities at the rate of 50c a hundred in 100 or  50 lots.

A Washington dispatch says Germany is likely to lodge with the  United States a protest against the  dotation of a billion dollar loan to  the Allies. The grounds of protest  are that in the event of the loan  being made without security it represents a violation of American  neutrality, the contention being  that while a loan on ample security  would have the appearance of a  straight business proposition, a  loan without security would have  thc aspect of assislance furnished  belligerents, by a neutral country  for other than purely business reasons.

Much as  we would like to comply .with this request we  have to decline.   II" we were to publish one half  the publicity matter sent out by  the  various  money-getting patriotic organizations we would  have to add another page or two to the Press and  would not then have space left for news matter.  The ladies of Enderby are already operating a  tobacco fund, and the Press is lending such support to their efforts as is needed, by giving such  publicity as they require.   The postolficc is also  collecting for this fund.   Together these channels  are filling the field and gathering in all the spare  cash the limited population of the" town and district can contribute, and the Press has no desire  to enter the field with another list covering the  same ground.   The ollicial organ of the Tobacco  Fund says:   -    - - ., ------ '- - .- ^,-   --_      ,-,-.-'.  . One.of the things that is going to help win this war.  is tobacco. * That is what' men home from the trenches say. "It;is the one,pleasure at the front.that.our  -.oltficrs find the hardest*to~"deny themselves. A luxury  at home, it is all but a necessity "over there," and .'also  in the German prison camps. It is thc great stimulus,  lhe gieat stand-by in times of great stress, when the  ordeal comes near to breaking a man up. The importance of tobacco and cigarettes to thc fighting man  is realized by the men who direct things at the front.  - This being true,.it would seem to be all the  more reason why there should be no tobacco fund  necessary, i. e. that it should be taken out of-thc  Voluntary subscription column and put in as one  of the field requirements of the men and supplied  by the Government the same as other munitions  of war arc furnished. The army regulations provide a certain amount of tobacco for the men. If  the regulation amount is not sufficient, and tobacco is .a necessity, why not double or trebblc  tlie allowance. If tobacco is one of thc things  that is going, to help win this war, then ivhy leave  it to voluntary subscription?  There are enough requiring assistance���������������������������such  asthe-Canadian=Eatrioti(uEund,=RedXross.Eund,  etc.', which cover requirements not covered by  the^ military department. We understand the  Canadian Patriotic Fund is already spending one  Hundred thousand per month more than it is receiving. At this rate thc Fund will soon be exhausted and hundreds of thousands of dollars  will again have to bc raised for thc purposes of  that Fund���������������������������care of the dependents of the men at  thc front from Canada. Worthy as lhc various  funds are of support,"wc cannot disregard Ihesc  simple facts.  RUSSIA'S HUMILIATING POSITION  tragedy of this shortage, has only been observed  by the men at the front, it is said, who,-with  empty gun caissons have helplessly faced the concentrated fire of the enemy's artillery and have  watched thc assured progress of the German and  Austrian trench builders under their very positions without the possibility of stopping them.  ��������������������������� It is alleged that the lack of ammunition was  the result of Russian officials who" superintended  thc purchase of war munitions seizing the opportunity which the war offered-them of amassing a  fortune at the expense, of the, government, and  insisting upon.such a large commission'on all  contracts. American and.English business men  who have been.trying to sell ammunition to'the  Russian government state that without an:avei\  age- of ,10 per cent commission-on all 'Salesit  was .'impossible to do^business^with.Hhe** Russian  purchasing commissions:*     , 7:7     \ Y,;:Y'       "  J MACHINE GUN DONATIONS V;^  O.K.  Baths in connection  H. HENDRICKSON, Proprietor  Next the Fulton Block, Enderby  Thc position of Russia today is not desperate,  but it is humiliating. After all thc "steam-roller"  talk, and thc brilliant strategy of the Grand Duke  Nicholas in "leading thc invaders into swamp  land" where they captured everything in sight, wc  now sec thc Grand Duke removed from lhe chief  command of thc army ancl that position assumed  by' the Czar himself. And thc steam-roller has  been.- ditched, after all of Poland has fallen into  the/hands of the enemy, with little likelihood of  the steam roller being put in motion again for  many, many months.  ,, The fall of Warsaw and thc failure of tbe  Russian defensive campaign in Poland have had a  much more profound effect upon Russian national spirit than is admitted in dispatches from Petrograd. This is apparent in many quarters, and  thc summary adjournment of thc Duma by tbe  Czar in face of the long-promised reform legislation coming up, is one of thc strongest evidences  that the people of thc nation arc fully aroused.  But the feeling which has shaken this constitutionally stolid and unemotional country from one  end to the other is not one of discouragement or  submission.   It has not moved any one to talk of  "��������������������������� "Donations for machine guns already have exceeded the expectations of the Government. .The*  Government has placed an order for' all the ma-,  chine guns"at"present available, and further dona-'  tions would not result 'in furnishing any ad-"  ditional equipment of guns to our troops."   \-  The foregoing paragraph is' taken from a.  statement issued to-the press by Senator Ldugr"  heed, who, at the time of writing'; is Acting Minister of' Militia. Senator Loughecd might; with'  truth and justification, have put the matter-much  more strongly. He might have said that, in all  probability thc money now being subscribed for  the purpose of purchasing machine guns would  not make itself felt in thc war for many months  to come; he.might have pointed out that only a  certain number of these guns could bc profitably  employed at a time, and that guns beyond ,that  number might conceivably prove a hinderance  rather than an advantage to our soldiers. Already  =it=-would=appcar--that=-morc-havc-bcen-promised-  than can bc conveniently used.  Thus comments the ollicial organ of thc Canadian Patriotic Fund, and then proceeds: "It has  been our policy to encourage giving to such patriotic bodies as the Red Cross Society, Belgian  Relief Fund, and other similar associations, even  sometimes at thc expense of tbe Patriotic Fund.  Wc confess frankly, however, that we have never  been in sympathy with thc machine gun movement, partly because of thc reason outlined above  and partly because the equipment of our troops  is so obviously lhe duty of tbe Government. Nobody yet has suggested thai Canadian troops  should be clolbed, equipped with rifles and bayonets, even supplied wilh ammunition, by means  of voluntary subscriptions, yet such a suggestion  would appear to bc no less logical than that,  which has resulted in thc giving, for the purchase  of machine guns, large sums of money which  could bc more profitably employed in olher  directions."

OWEN ROSOMAN Mara THE ENDERBY PRES3 AND WALKER'S WEEKLY  Thursday, September 30, 1915  Dual Purpose Cow Strongly  Recommended for Dairy Purposes  Why is not more use being made  of the dual purpose cow, which  would appreciably increase thc  beef production of the Province?  Is not a mistake being made by  concentrating too much on Holstein  blood for dairy cattle? Both J. A.  Turner and Mr. liryee Wright,  formerlv large cattle breeders on  the plains and now living retired  at Victoria, bul acting as judges at  the fail fairs, hold, kindred views  on these questions. They believe  much greater use could be made of  the dual purpose cow, thc Shorthorn, in the Fraser Valley and  olher parts of the Mainland and lhc  Island, and that a mistake is being  made in concentrating too much on  one dairy strain, the experience of  other countries being that didcrcnt  breeds do well according to the  conditions of a particular locality.  In an interview in one oi lhe  coast papers, Mr. Turner said if  the Holstein raisers were raising  instead dairv Shorthorns, they  would have a profitable market for  both their milk and their beef.  Dairying, he said, is not everything  and 'one ought to be able to turn  the by-products of the farm into  beef 'instead"o'f allowing it to go  to waste. The Government should  nol push one breed more than an-  Big Drop  in Flour  Manitoba, 49s . . $1.65  Centennial, 49s . . J,75  Glenora, 49s, ....

Woods  other. Different districts are adapted for different animals.  If a man raises a calf that can be  turned into beef at the end of Iwo  vears, with the rich feed that is  produced in these valleys, he ought  to have an animal that would dress  GOO pounds of beef at that age.  Bv utilizing thc dual purpose cow,  siich as lhc dairy Shorthorn, the  fanner should be able to dp this,  and instead of having to depend  on one market, he has Iwo. J hey  tell vou that there is no money in  raising beef in these valleys, but it  you have the dual purpose cow,  that will milk for six or seven  months in the year, produce a call  at $60' or .$70, is nol thc farmer going to-make more than he would  simplv out of his milk���������������������������and with  less labor for thc family?  Mr. Turner said he thought the  Provincial Government should help  the Provincial breeders to find a  market for their stock and not cut  the feet from under them by importing too much themselves.  Mr. Bryce Wright is esteemed as  one of the best judges of cattle in  the  whole  country,  and   he  thoroughly agrees as to the-need and  the  possibilities   for  raising  more  beef.   It is a mistake to think they  can be profitably   raised   in   range  countries; thc best work is done in  restricted areas in many countries.  "Farmers  here  should  endeavor  to make the winter season the most  profitable of thc year," he states,  "and they can do it by raising beet  for the spring market when  beet  commands its highest price.    There  arc too many  farmers who think  when the harvest is in that they arc  at the end of the busy season.    1  always   considered   that  thc   busy  season began when  that was in.  Mr.    Wright    thought    the    range  country was   the   very   place  lor  raising  of  young  stock,  but   they  should be finished off on the rich  lands   of  thc   Fraser   and   similar  coast valleys.     He said he thought  it would bc to the advantage of the  whole cattle industry if they would  mix a little better���������������������������have a certain  proportion of beef along with their  dairy cattle.   Still he would not .advocate   a   reduction   in   the   dairy-  herds while they have a good market for all they produce.    As long  as the dairy cattle  are paying as  well as thev do hc did not think  that end of the industry should be  neglected,  but   beef   may . be   included bv using the dual purpose  Shorthorn.    That is the only real  dual purpose cow and it is a class  of cattle that has been very strong-  !lv advocated in other provinces.  ' " In this connection, many farmers  in this district have already taken  up  this  question   of  dual-purpose  breeding, having bought stock from  H.  E. Waby's Red  Poll  registered  herd.

WILLIAMS  Wood's  Lake Alvaston,  B.C  "THE SALMON ARE RUNNING"  Sight-seers deight to witness the  schools, of salmon slowly making  their way up the river these days.  From the Cliff street bridge one  can see them in dozens tinning by,  some a bit scrappy and torn by  snag or rock or perhaps a poorly^  aimed spear, but all bent upon thc  one thing���������������������������getting as far. up stream  as possible where thc water is more  still, warm and shallow. Only a  comparatively few. salmon get as  far up stream as Ihe Spallumcheen,  and they come always thc latter  part of September.  Few people inland understand  the habits of thc salmon, but on the  coast, particularly in thc vicinity  of the canneries, there is not a boy  or girl that cannot tell you all  about them, their habits, breeding  places and family connection. In  May there come thc "Springs, in  Julv the "Humpbacks," in August  the'"Sockcyes," and toward the end  of September the "Silvers." 1 hese  arc all salmon, and to the novice  arc about alike, varying only in  size and weight. Each school runs  almost uniform in size. Thc weight  varies from ten pounds to seventy.  On the coast at the cannery fishing ground, these fish are caught  in fish traps���������������������������wide-mouthed gateways, fenced by rope, with a mesh  that lets out all fish excepting those  of a certain size. The trap may be  a hundred feet wide, or two hundred at its jnouth, narrowing down  to twenty feet, then bellying out  again. Into this trap swim the fish,  moving north in a dense mass, all  headed one way, intent on reaching  the spawning grounds ot fresh  water, where they themselves were  hatched, and from whence they  swam four years before. m During  lhe time of their absence tney have  travelled clear across the broad  Pacific, skirted the shores of China,  the Indian. Ocean, and then drifting  into the Japan current, started for  home and native land, lhosc that  reach the happy breeding-places���������������������������  spawning-ground���������������������������get there only  after a terrific, frenzied fight.  Thev arc battered and bruised on  the rocks in their fight up the shallow streams. But the cosmic urge  is upon them. Nothing can turn  them back. They arrive and then  they die. That is their goal and  end of life. The females lay their  eggs, the males pass oyer and ter-  UlFze them. Then both relax into  a stupor, lhe nuptial sleep,-that  knows no waking.-" They die that  thc'voting might live. They give  their lives for the race, and their  dead bodies arc carried down the  rivers and out upon the unforgetting tide. ^   SOCKS  FOR  SOLDIERS  A young lady on Mount Pleasant  patriotically knitted socks for  soldiers. In the toe of one she  placed, a note asking the soldier recipient if he found the time to  please write her a line telling her  of conditions on thc firing line.  The other day she got a letter from  a man working in a logging camp  up the coast, saying that he had  bought thc pair of socks for boc.  Hc answered thc note for the purpose of letting her know that thc  socks had evidently gone astray, as  he was a long way from thc firing  line.
