SEPTEMBER 9, 1915  CO-OPERATIVE MARKETING  How well wc remember the old plan whereby  one farmer went to lown with two dozen eggs,  another with lour or five chickens, another with  a ham, another with live or ten pounds of green  peas, and another with a peck, of apples. In  either case they used up more horseflesh and lost  more time, three or four times over, than their  load of produce would bring���������������������������in trade. But the  system ' was persisted in���������������������������and is continued in  some quarters even today. But this plan must  give way to some profitable co-operative marketing method in each neighborhood before there  can come anything like prosperity to thc community. Wc want lo sec thc farmers of Enderby-  Mara dislrict lhc most prosperous bunch of home  makers in lhe Okanagan". They can bc if'they get  closer together and stick together. They never  will be if they don't. Wc have said something before on the mailer of co-operation, and hope to  say much more from time to time. .Just now we  arc interested in what other co-operative farmers'  societies are doing elsewhere, for it shows, us what I  Men and nations arc slow to learn thc great  lessons of Nature which arc being taught every  day in and through every-day life as wc live it.  Wc come and go; mourn and sing; love and hate;  live and die; most times unconscious of thc fact  of our doing and undoing, and ignorant of thc  unseen hand directing our course, as individuals  and as nations.     England at thc beginning of the  war was not a highly organized slate.   It is not  yet organized.   Even those who arc not "slackers"  did not know enough of thc slate to offer intelligently their services.    The good disciplinarian  eil'ecls of the war have been so obvious that even  pacifists recognize them.    Prof. Patrick Geddcs,  in a lecture course at Kings college, noted the  effect upon young Englishmen.   "They are better  set up," hc said; "manlier lhan they were; they  arc restrained, vitalized and "disciplined, as peace  did not vitalize or discipline."  British people do not fall readily into organization. They insist upon being self-governing units.  Subordination is a virtue wc have not learned.  Wc. call it "militarism." Thc general feeling is  that war is a total waste. English pacifists now  assert lhat this feeling is wrong. War has its byproducts, they tell us, and one of thc good ones is  discipline. "Militarism," that whip wc have  flayed thc Germans with, is thc next step, and if  the war continues another year we may expect to  see "militarism" as strongly demanded in England as it now is implanted in Germany.  But all thc good by-products of war are attainable without war. To say that they arc not is to  argue that men must walk through hell to reach  heaven. .- *-'    .  BOOZE IN VERNON  Some time ago the chief censor of Canada  Hashed the word from Ottawa that nothing was  to bc said about thc military camp at Vernon.  The chief censor evidently had misinterpreted the  meaning of his inside information. But* his instructions were dutifully carried out by. the newspapers receiving thc hunch. Now thc chief censor has revoked his previous order, and thc  publishing of news about the camp is again permissible. What was suppressed in connection  with the camp by thc order of the chief censor  It was complaints, though wc do  was not news  not believe thc chief censor knew it at thc time thc  might hc accomplished in this locality if thc same!order was issued.   But it was a restriction which  plans were followed  Wc have what is supposed to bc a co-operative  organization established here, known as the Enderby Growers' Association. This Association,  -^while^doing-^somelhingHn^thc^co-opcrativc^liner  and filling a need, is not receiving the full, cordial  support of our growers, and has not been nor can  hc a real, permanent, live institution, until thc  farmers themselves take a more active interest in  its welfare. II is nol filling ils full mission, and in  so saying wc do nol relied upon cither lhe local  manager or lhe local board of directors. But wc  must recognize fads which are apparent to all.  Thc sooner Ihey are recognized and the institution placed upon a belter working basis, the  better will it be for all, and lhc more satisfying  will be llie* work of the manager.  Without prejudice to the local board of directors, we wish to point to what wc believe to be  the great point of weakness we feel has existed in the handling of the local exchange business. Perhaps we can best do so by calling attention to how the business is operated by institutions of this nature which have proved successful.  The local organization has provided only lhe  small half of the machinery for operating successfully, if we are lo judge by what the more successful co-operative organizations provide. Our  local has provided a store room and oflice for lhe  manager for handling lhc business. This is lhe  first essential, but not the only essential. Indeed,  il i.s nol lhc most essential. Listen to what other  organizations do, in addition to this:  "Ample equipment should be provided by lhe Board  of Direclors for carrying on lhe business, and should  consist of spring wagon, harness, etc., for collecting  the products on the routes, and for marketing these  products as rapidly as possible. Also refrigerator  butter crates, milk cans, etc., needed for handling  perishable goods in warm weather. Routes should be  established from basing points covering Ihe territory  where the palrons reside and should go lo or near their  homes. These routes can bc provided to serve the  territory norlh, cast, son I It and west. Collections and  marketing can be done on alternate days, making one  could not long hold good, for the newspapers of  the west will not long sit quiet and sec an abuse  made of the real Canadian patriotic spirit.  In  thc Greenwood Ledge Editor Lowcry has  -this^to^say^of^corulitions^which^have"=existed=in"  Vernon for some time past:   "Thc camping of thc  soldiers in Vernon has been a great boon to the  gin mills of that city.   The receipts of some of the  bars run inlo hundreds of dollars a day.   At certain  times of thc day the bars arc filled with  soldiers thicker than flics around a gob of spilled  sugar, all clamoring for booze, and getting their  money down on the bar like white chips in a five  ccnt_ pokci*:ganic.'_ AVcrnon^bar: in^-thc^carly  evening has got, wilh lhc exception of thc shooting. Ihe Arizona saloons of lhe early days skinned  lo a sloppy finale.   Although Ihey arc all gunmen  none of thc boys in khaki have as yet leaded a bat-  hop  or shot  the  lights  out.    Vernon   whiskey  must hc more soporifcrous lhat militant.    It is  one of the great sights of Ihesc days of war to see  a  Vernon  barroom in action.    Every two feet,  entrenched behind a long breastwork of mahogany stand the noble, resolute and determined bar-  lenders, prepared  lo do until overcome by thc  gas.    Eagerly   the  Canadians  leap  into  action,  every man burning to do his two bits towards  putting down the enemy.   The compact is terrific  and the spectacle bizarre.

OKANAGAN SAW MILLS, Ltd W������������������kr  King Edward  A name that stands for the.best.in hotel service  KbgEdwardHotel, SJ;���������������������������������������������^T- Enderby  The Dominion law against the selling of  butter without the words "Dairy Butter" or  "Creamery Butter"���������������������������as the case may be���������������������������printed  on the butter wrap, is a blessing in disguise to the  average farmer. In the first place, if his Butter  -wrappers-are-neatly-printed^with4iis^name^and^  thc brand of thc butter on the label, the storekeepers can readily sell the butter at 5c a pound'  more than he 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  the merchant. '  It is thc duty of every butter maker to comply with the law in this matter. Some butter  makers have_only_a cowlorjwo, and make so little  butter that it does not appear to them that they  can afford to have their butter wraps printed.  They do not like thc idea of having 500 or 1000  butter wraps on hand. To accommodate this  class of butter makers, The 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 the maker. However,  these wrappers fill the requirements of the law  governing this point, and can be bought in small  quantities at the rale of 50c a hundred in 100 or  50 lots.

The following general directions on tomato  canning and recipes have been prepared for the;  Provincial Department of Agriculture, and arc  given as an aid in and to encourage thc canning  of tomatoes in thc home. Canned goods keep  because they arc properly sterilized and properly  scaled. Tomatoes may be canned, and will keep  indefinitely by lhc following method:  1. An ordinary wash boiler with a tight-fitting  lid and a false bottom put in of wire netting or a  piece of board to fit the boiler, will answer thc  purpose of a cooker.  2. Sterilize jars, tops and rubbers thoroughly  by boiling them.  3. Choose sound, firm but not over-ripe stock.  4. Blanch the tomatoes by placing theni in a  muslin bag, boiling water poured over them to  entirely cover, and allowing them to boil a minute  Then plunge in cold water to losscn the skin and  harden the pulp.  5. Peel at once and pack in the jars, adding  tomato juice to fill thc jars, and a level teaspoon  of salt to each quart. Do not add any water as  tomatoes are themselves 94 per cent water.  6. Place rubbers and tops in place, partially,  tighten tops and sterilize the given time.  . 7. Remove from boiler, tightening the tops as  you lift each operand stand the jars upside down  to cool.  Canning Whole Tomatoes  Preparing the liquid:���������������������������After blanching and removing skins from some tomatoes, cut up and  boil in a preserving kettle for 25 minutes. Rub  through a sieve to remove seeds and to make  smooth. Return to kettle, and reheat. While the  strained liquid is heating, select some small firm,  ripe tomatoes'just big enough to slip into the  jars. Place these in boiling water for a moment,  core and peel. Pack carefully in the jars without  crowding or spoiling their shape. Add a level  teaspoonful of salt to each quart and fill up the  jars with the strained hot liquid. Put on rubbers  arid tops, partially tighten tops, and place^in' the  boiler^on the false bottom. Have the water in the  boiler rather hot, to prevent the already hot jars'  from breaking. Sterilize for half an hour,  tighten.tops, remove from boiler and cool.  ��������������������������� Tomatoes, canned in this way are available for  serving in.any way,where fresh whole tomatoes  are.uscd, such as.salads, breading or baking, and  the' strained juice is the basis of .-many soups.  Canned Tomatoes for General Use   <: *c  Blanch arid peel the tomatoes and packin; jars  as^nearly- whole as possible, filling the jars completely.

On the other-hand, English bankers say that  German finance is like a balloon inflated so lhal  it is near thc bursting point. Being surrounded  on all sides,Gcrmanys export profits are cut off,  but she has lhc advantage of no outgo of tho  wealth. All her expenditures arc made at home  and thc money is kept going round and round in  a circle. It is argued by British financiers lhat  every day, as thc volume of money increases and  the circulation gets whirling faster, thc foundation of real values gets weaker and raw materials  scarcer,-.so that some day soon there will bc a  collapse. Thc German financiers answer that their  paper money is accepted by the people at par  value; that, all expenditures being made at home,  industry is fostered, and that Germany is in a  sounder economic condition than England.  - These are thc positions taken by the financiers  of the principal belligerent powers.-. These arc  thc positions they will no doubt cling to in the  mortal combat in finances they have entered upon  on neutral ground���������������������������New York.

HENDRICKSON, Proprietor  Next the Fulton Block, Enderby  The situation in Europe as it presents itself, to  the lay mind is this: The armies of'the belligcr-  -ents^have^about^come^to^the^conclusion^that^no*  real gain can be made by cither side against this  trench warfare. Wc have heard much about thc  great drive the Allies have been contemplating for  the past year, and nothing has come of it. We  have been told of the great drive thc Teutons have  been trying to make on Calais, but nothing has  come of it, either. True, much hard fighting has  been done, but in the end, after enough men and  ammunition have bccncxpcnded.to win an ordinary war, the armies find themselves just where  they started. In thc East only has any marked  progress been made, arid that by thc enemy.  It seems, therefore, that thc mode of warfare  must change if either side is to gain thc mastery  bf the other. If wc arc keen enough to. read the  drift of events, wc may witness today, the incoming of this change. The change is from thc  sand pit to the money pit, and the scene of battle  is Wall Street, New York. The next few months  will no doubt witness a war of finance the likes  of which the world has never seen. Already wc  have seen the opening battle, when the British  sterling was knocked down to $4.50. This is  something that has never been known in the  proud history of the British sterling. There has  been a. marked recovery on the New York market  since the low-water mark was reached, but there  is evidence of a sharp decline in all foreign money  values on the American market.  Germany is seeking to prevent England from  getting money in the United States, and points to  President .Wilson's prohibition early in the war  against foreign government loans being floated in  that country. And in the world of high finance  thc Germans assert that unless "England obtains  financial assistance from the United States, allied  finances will collapse before the end of the year  They argue that England is being drained of her  resources, both in financing her allies and in  making purchases In the Uriitel States; that she  Within the past ten days there lias, been .much  talk of peace, though apparently it comes from  no authenticate source, and, like much of the  speculation sent out under London date,ris put out  for effect more than to express fact. The Associated. Press London, correspondent says that .in  high ollicial .'circles it is learned authoritatively  that recent rumors of peace have no foundation  in any step taken by the British Government or  in any statement issued in London from authoritative sources. At the same time, a later report  from the same source, says peace negotiations  would not be opposed by London, "if they-mean  the right kind of peace." " ��������������������������� .  A Washington despatch says: "President Wilson  sees no immediate possibility for any move to  reconcile European belligerents. The time may  come soon, however, when he can act, arid! conse:  qucntly, the President will hold open thc suggestion of his Holiness Pope Benedict, that concerted  action by neutral nations should be taken and  that the Washington government should renew  its original offer of mediation."

By concentrating heavy forces against  tlie weakest spots in the Russian lines the Teutons  arc seeking to,split the Russian field forces into  three" afriTicT"before_th"c arnWl~of_wiritefr;_Greaft  masses of men and metal arc being hurled against  thc retreating Slavs in thc region of Vilna. Field  Marshal von Hindcnburg is directing the drive.  Hc hopes to cut off thc Brest Li tovsk armies. In  .the southeast, thc Austrians, evidently reinforced  by detachments from voiv Mackcnscn, are attempting a rush northward through Kovcl. Their  object is to throw another wedge between the  Brest :Lilovsk-armies and the Russians under.  Gen. Ivanoff, still holding a section of Galicia.  Thc heavier blow is being struck by von Hin-  denburg in the north, where despatches indicate  he has- already secured a hold upon the river  Dvinsk. If thc Teutons are able to hold this river  and cross it, it is said that thc port of Riga will  have to be evacuated by the Russians, which  would mean that the Gulf of Riga will fall into  Teuton hands.  According to Berlin, the Russian losses have  been 1,000,000 in prisoners alone since May 2nd,  the date on which the drive began in Western  Galicia,-while during August the captures included more than 250,000 men and 22,300'cannon  The Austro-Gernian losses, too, have been heavy  in killed and wounded, while the strain on thc  troops has been terrific. They still have, according to Petrograd estimates, about 2,000,000 men  on ��������������������������� the-EastcVn-front,-300,000 being in the Riga  region, more than 1,000,000 in the centre and  from 600,000 to 700,000 in Galicia.  The war news these days is slashed, colored  and censored so much that it is a waste of time  to read it. The daily papers continue to furnish  a large amount of war dope because their readers  demand that kind of literary food. They want a  battle every morning for breakfast, ancl horrors  beget horrors.

Afternoon     teas     and     evening  lunches are served at Joe's  women of Canada concerning the  need of men is issued by the  National Committee of Women for  Patriotic Service:  "A year ago thc thunderbolt of  war fell upon us out of a clear sky.  After the Mrs I moment of surprise  and confusion had passed, we aked  'How can we help?'  "During Ihe year thai has passed,  that question has found many answers. The trained nurse quickly  proved her value. Other women  were called upon to organize and  direct Red. Cross and St. John Ambulance work or patriotic societies,  while all gave time or money or  personal service in preparing supplies.  "To comparatively few came the  need of thc supreme sacrifice���������������������������thc  sending forth of husband, son or  brother to the fight. The first appeal for volunteers was limited and  did not appear very urgent. All  honor to those who heard and  obeyed the earliest call of the  Empire and whose women sent  them forth with pride to fight in  the front rank of the Canadian  forces.  "Today the situation has changed.  Wc have learnt, after a year of war,  that our task is harder, our danger  more real, lhan we thought a year  ago. We have -given' gladly: now  we are called to 'give-up,' and service musl fulfil itself in sacrifice.  Most urgent of all today is Ihe call  to give up ungrudgingly our husbands, sons and brothers. We are  called to create in our homes such  an atmosphere of self-devotion thai  our men and boys may feel their  resolution to offer themselves in  their country's service is simply  what we expect of them.  "This does not mean that women  should be constantly urging their  men to enlist, for it is doubtful if  the patriotic persistence of a wife  or mother would produce anything  but a reluctant and resentful recruit. The men of Canada have not  shown themselves less patriotic  than Iheir women; but it is for us.  the women of Canada, to ask ourselves whether our self-sacrifice is  falling short of the supreme test.  "Are we making if hard or easy  for our men lo obey their country's  call to service?  "Why is the call so urgent?    . ���������������������������  "Thc answer i.s simple: it is because our existence as an Empire  is at stake.. .  "Wc went into "the war to keep  our solemn pledges to our Allies;  and this reason still holds good.  "But there are now other reasons  which did not exist a year ago.  Belgium with her ravaged land and  exiled people cries aloud for justice. What do Canadian women  say to thc appeals of her outraged  women    and    mutilated    children?  are we willing lo suffer for them?  "The women of France and  Russia and thc United Kingdom  have Jong ago heard the appeal to  give up their men, anl have responded nobly. What will Canadian women do?  "Beyond keeping of our pledged  word, thc woes of Belgium, and the  example of our Allies, there comes  to us the knowledge that we are  called on lo fight our own battle;  not to send help to.. Belgium or  France or even England, bul to  fight for our own national existence.  "We are told by the men who  know that wc cannot win in this  war without more men.  "If we hold back our men we are  courting defeat; and defeat means,  not a vague misfortune to the Empire at large, but the very practical  result, of a Canada governed by  Germans.  "Do we wranl to know what that  would mean? Then let us look at  Belgium, and learn how the yoke  of thc conqueror galls thc neck of a  freedom-loving people. Defeat  would mean for us a period of  bitterest shame and discontent, and  then���������������������������another war. Can we risk it?  We are risking it if we do not make  the path of service easy for our  men.  "But the most compelling call for  sacrifice rings out form the graves  of those who on the fields of  Flanders, at Langemarck, and  Yprcs, and Festubert, have blazed  the trail to glory with their life  blood.  "Can we make their self-surrender of no avail  by holding back  the men who would take up .and  complete their splendid task?

Restoration of African colonies  to Germany by Great Britain.  An international agreement on  the freedom of the seas, guaranteeing private property at sea immune  from attack by naval"forces.  The kaiser is credited with desiring to end the war now while he  is an acknowledged victor. Evidence is accumulating, says the despatch, that this aim on the part of  the German emperor accounts for  the sudden decision to court the  friendship of the United Stales by I  yielding to President Wilson's "RifwriW oywJ "R__ff__*������������������  demands in regard to the conduct PlggVT mliX -P*������������������TXer  of submarine warfare.
