Wheeler is expected to  return from the Northwest within  the next week.  A grist mill is being operated at  the Hazelmcre farm by Mr. Thos.  Skyrme, and the product of Hour is  reported-to bc excellent.  It is predicted by American  financiers that that country is on  the eve of the. greatest period of  prosperity it has experienced in the  past two decades.  Orders    for   Private    Christmas  * cards are being booked at the Press  ,  ollice, and filled each week-end.

An order has been issued by the  Government making it "impossible  , for an able-bodied man to leave  /England without a passport. This  step was taken to prevent the emigration to America of hundreds:of  young men lo escape enlistment.  The. suffragettes of England-have  called off the truce entered into at  the opening of the war, and at a  Pankhurst meeting a few nights ago  the speakers denounced the Government leaders as "traitors," and  demanded that they be driven from  ollice.  A certain editor recently received  from a lady some verses, daintily  tied up with pink ribbon, and en-  ^titled,^I-^VondeiUf=He!lLMiss,Me.?IL  After reading the verses the editor  returned^ them to the sender with  the note: "Dear Madam: If hc does  he ought never to be trusted with  firearms again."  The traction road engine and  gravel wagon was brought up from  Vernon this week to be employed in  gravelling thc east Salmon Arm  wagon road. Owing to "the soft  condition of lhe roads no work has  been attempted, but if thc present  cold snap continues a few days the  roads will bc in good shape for thc  work to proceed.  Tho body of Mr. Hiram Baldwin  came in from thc Northwest on last*  Friday, and burial services were  held from thc McPhcrson undertaking rooms. Mr. Baldwin was a  homesteader on a properly in the  vicinity of Glen Mary. When the  threshing season opened he and a  son went to the Northwest, where  the father contracted typhoid feyer  and soon died. Interment took  place at the Enderby cemetery.  The Enderby pool rooms were  closed this week, and Mr. Thompson moved his tables to Armstrong.  It is regrettable that Mr. Thompson  found it necessary to move from  Enderby. During the three ycars he  has had the pool room here he has  conducted the rooni in such a way  as to make it a real pleasure to all  who relish a game now and then.  He has been more of a "daddy" to  the young men than- some of their  own.  ���������������������������CROP  COMPETITION  AWARDS  Six entries were made in the  .crop competition held this season  by the Department of Agriculture,  through the Farmers' Institute, for  FORTUNE SCHOOL HONOR ROLL \  AMERICAN NOTE  TO BRITAIN  Vol. 8;.No. 37; Whole No. 39  HORTICULTURAL   SOCIETY  A meeting of the Board of Directors of the Enderby Agricultural &  Division I.

THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 11, 1915  ORGANIZATION MUST COME  The men in business in any town owe to that  town a responsibility.' Upon them depends the  holding of the business of the home town and  surrounding territory. Any town that is permitted to lose ils attraction for the people of the  surrounding district must likewise fail lo.be attractive lo outsiders looking for a place to move  to. The connecting link in'.thc chain of progress  between'ihe-home merchant and the district is an  important one, and il is up to'the home merchant  lo keep the link strongly welded and the contact  sharp. If this is nol done, the people of. the outlying district lose interest in the town as a com-  jmercial centre and tlie loss-to lhe lown soon becomes great. The duly of the home merchant is  clear. .* He owes it lo the community lo keep thc  town lhc interest centre of lhe district. Let the  .district once get into the habit of sending out of  j lhe home lown for supplies, and il will lake hard  and expensive labor in lhc form of advertising to  bring back thc business to its natural centre.  Realizing lhe full importance of holding thc  business of lhe surrounding country, lhe merchanls of neighboring towns arc making earnest  efforts to co-operate in their advertising. In  Kelowna, for instance,, the merchants have combined lo make Saturday, Nov. 20th a notable day  in that progressive locality. On that day the  stores, will'all co-operate in holding a big Dollar  Day, and thc Record says in every slorc will-be  displayed attractive Dollar Day bargains to bc  bought for lhe nimble one spot, and thc merchants are making liberal use of thc columns of  the local press in an effort to make thc inducements sufficiently attractive to bring thc people  in to Kelowna from all quarters in lhat vicinity.  Each merchant, apparently, is vicing with thc  other in giving lhc biggest dollar's worth, and the  people of thc district arc advised to gather up all  their twenty-dollar bills and get them changed  into ones for that occasion. Thc movement is  wakening lhc enthusiasm of every storekeeper in  that town, and no doubt the people of thc district  will appreciate thc effort'being made by the merchants and lend their support to the co-operative  movement. They, like the.people of all other districts, arc prepared lo support loyally any centralizing movement of this nature," which means a  benefit to each and all within thc district.  We carry a good stock of the following jj  ROBIN HOOD  SEAL OF ALBERTA  RADIUM  GRAHAM  WHOLE WHEAT  RYE  Also Bran, Shorts, Middlings, "Wheat,*- Oats, Barley, Barley Chop,  Oat Chop, Cracked and Whole Corn and a good supply of Poultry  Foods.

We deliver to any part of the city  TEECE & SON,  Old Poison Mercantile  Block, Enderby  Practical, far-seeing business men arc ol'tcnlcd  to criticise and abuse farmers' organizations. Thc  favorite complaint is that these organizations get  mixed up in politics or go after some impracticable scheme and die, as others before have  done. Particularly is this line of thc farmers'  organizations which have come and gone in this  district. - ' *'"  Without endeavoring lo answer such argument  wc want to say lhat, whether prudent'or not, w_  arc firmlv convinced that no permanent success  can come" to the agricultural industry in this district, no more than in any other, until the farmers  of thc district organize and perfect their organization. Wc admit that farmers arc not used to  working together. They are likely to bc misled at  times. They may sometimes, and often do, have  their prejudices aroused and turn down their  truest friends at the behest of some demagogue.  Being unlried in business, Ihcy may, too, want lo  go oil' into some big. alluring, high-sounding  scheme lhat will nol work, instead of devoting  In thc town, on the road, no .'matter where you  arc, you'd better nol hear lhc.persiflage said about  you.   If it's nol true, what's the difference?  COMMUNITY LUXURIES IN WAR TIMES  Sooner or later, communities, similar to Enderby must shift' off the luxuries indulged in or thrust  upon them when times were good. Wc must get  down to business in our luxuries as well as in our  economics. .It is a delicate question to handle, wc  admit, but wc must handle'il one time or another,  and thc sooner wc face it and solve it, thc better  for all concerned. No doubt there are hundreds  of communities similarly situated, but wc have  yet to hear of one taking steps to alter or make  lhc conditions easier. Wc refer to the matter of  thc churches���������������������������a superabundance of them. In Enderby wc have four, with, perhaps, room for no  more than one.

Order Your Xmas  Greeting* Cards  Before the Rush  This year, perhaps more than at any other  time, a Christmas remembrance will be most  appreciated by the folks at home, and by friends  far away across the ocean. A word of greeting  to the loved ones in war-stricken Europe would  ^gladden J;heJh eacLand. for a brief .spell, atjeast,  turn the mind from channels of doubt and uncertainty into those of cheerfulness and fellowship.  Expensive Christmas gifts will be out of  the question this year. It will be a year when a  personal letter or a Christmas Card will be more  acceptable than anything else.  Why not make up your mind NOW, that  you will send your friends some message of cheer  ona ChristmasCard?  Can you think of anything more acceptable  or more appropriate, than a Private Christmas  Card, with the message you wish to send printed  in gold, with your name and address, such as we  are now taking orders for ?  In ordinary seasons these are put up in  lots of a dozen at from $1.50 to $2.50 and $3.50 a  dozen. This year we are making a flat rate of  $1.50 for the first dozen and from 75c to $1.00 for  the second or subsequent dozen.  " We are now showing the samples.

GETTING DOWN TO PLAIN FACTS  CONSIDERING THE DIFFICULTIES  It is impossible, however much we may try, to  minimize the difficulties .under which the Entente  allies Tiave labored, are-laboring, arid must continue to labor in the conduct of the greal war. .It  . need not be wondered at that the leading powers,  England and France, have been forced to change  governments and change men at the head of the  directing force of. the war. And it would not be  surprising if other changes have yet.to be.made.  V Commenting on present conditions in England,  tHe'���������������������������Nation,'of -New-York* speaks thus encouragingly: "Behind the whole undoubtedly lies the  feelirfg that British ill success in the. war. has been  due to mismanagement. This is believed-to be  partly military and partly1 diplomatic*" But any  _ fair consideration; of thc matter,, must, take into  account the enormous difficulties that had to be  faced. In- the whole question of foreign policy,  for example, both .military and diplomatic, it  must be remembered that tlie British Government has not been free to play its own hand. It  has had lo consult with its allies. -And if it is hard  to make a Coalition Government run smoothly,  to conduct a gigantic war through a Quadruple  Entente is vastly harder. Long-range consultations are necessary. Different views have to be  compared and reconciled. Conflicting interests  have to be composed. All this lakes a great deal  of labor and a lot of time; and the misery of it is  that, when a decision is finally reached, the situation may have so changed that the work has to be  begun all over again. Under such conditions, thc  real wonder is, not that there have been so many  delays and disappointments, but that there has  been such marked and unbroken harmony be-  -tween-Russia-and-France^andJtaly.and=England,.  and that together they* have accomplished so  much."  CONSTANTINOPLE THE KEY TO POWER  Theodore Zhivkovitch, a graduate of the University of Vienna, and holding a Ph. D. degree  from the Sarbonnc of Paris, for a number ol  ycars a correspondent of Serbian, Croatian, Russian and Slavak newspapers, writing today on the  Balkan complications in connection with the  world war, declares that "thc great struggle lor  Constantinople and lhc Dardanelles in connection  with Egypt and India is today more than ever  before thc issue at stake, and whoever gets Constantinople will win the war and supremacy in the  East. It is a very old belief that Russia has long  wished to occupy Constantinople because of some  historical tradition or mysterious imperial testament. Russian Christian ambition of reestablishing the cross on St. Sofia has great political and  moral influence on the people... The problem oi  Macedonia can be understood only in connection  with the Far Eastern problem. The Macedonian  question, which caused the break Jn the alliance  and the shameful Avar among its members, was  ancl is the casus belli of the Balkan nations. The  Arabian question, with the anti-government disturbances and the unsolved .Armenian question  (which was the Turkish plan for making Armenia  a defending wall against the Russians from the  north of Asia Minor) was the same problem as  that of the Balkan nations to some of the European powers, because on that question depends  the whole problem and interests of the European  powers in the East."  We best serve ourselves in serving the community���������������������������and that's where our duty lies.  Plain facing of facts as they are in Great Britain  and in Canada will not only not do harm, says  thc Financial Post, but will serve to bring to a  conclusion the great task the various parts of the  British connection have before them. Thc Post  has been asking for greater business efficiency at  Ottawa. If thc Departments as they arc now  manned .cannot secure tliat efficiency they should  and no doubt will be speedily changed, or thc  work placed in other hands: In line with these  views so frequently expressed by thc Post thc  .current London Economist says:  "This need of business knowledge reminds us that  lhe Government, by general admission, has not been  getting value-for its money. There is prodigious waste  (as every business man knows too well) owing to  failures in the central organization, and wc would  most seriously ask not only Cabinet .Ministers, but all  independent members of the House of Commons ancl  of the House of Lords whether they do not in their  hearts believe that by a more economical and eflicicnt  administration of thc war departments���������������������������including thc  new Ministry of Munitions���������������������������a far larger sum could not  be saved than will be extracted from the taxpayers by  the new'and unprecedented burdens which have been  imposed during the last 12 months. Could not a small  committee of a dozen really independent, honest ancl  competent men of business be appointed by the House  at Commons to sit day after day, with the aid of  Treasury ollicials and iinancial ollicers of the war  departments, to curtail waste, reduce redundant establishments, and, among other things, to release superfluous ollicers from business work, which they do not  well understand, for military duties?"  RO^ftLi  YEXSM  MAKES PERFECT BREAD  T. P. O'Connor on the Balkans  "Though the situation is confused  this is my forecast: The defeat of  Serbia will nol be Ihe end, but the  beginning.* England, France, Russia and Italy now arc convinced  equally that it is their business to  meet lhe new German move in the  Balkans with forces so powerful as  to compel the still vacillating neutrals to throw in their lot with  Ihem, and thus to create a movement so overwhelming against Germany as to make this last enterprise  the beginning of her end, not her  triumphs."

There/thc taxes will be collected twice  a year. A discount of five per cent, will be allowed on all taxes paid before July 1st, with thc  exception of local improvement taxes. To any  person who has paid the first half-year's taxes  and. is ready to pay the second half-year's taxes  before October 1st, a discount of -V_ per cent will  be allowed. A penalty of 8 per cent on all taxes  unpaid by December 1st will be enforced. * The  recommendation4o-adoi)Uthe-=neNv=mcthod-o_=tax_  collection came from thc commissioners, who  represented to the council thc difficulties that  might be met with by the city in their financing  with the bank next year, as thc bank is increasingly disinclined to allow thc city an extension  overdraft, as previously, in order to allow financing before ,the taxes begin to come in. Apart  from thc desirability of being able to finance  without applying to the bank to so great an extent  it was pointed out that many ofthc ratepayers  would be pleased to pay their taxes earlier, if a  bonus were given, and thus get a bigger interest  on their money than they would draw from the  bank.  EXTENDING CO-OPERATIVE EXPERIMENTS  While thc activities of the Live Stock Branch of  the Dominion Department of Agriculture with regard to the organization of Co-operative Egg and  Poultry Marketing Associations have been largely  confined to date lo the Eastern Provinces of the  Dominion, the need and opportunity for work of  this kind in the Western Provinces have not been  overlooked.  From the fact that co-operative marketing of  poultry products was something entirely new, it  was thought advisable to thoroughly test out the  practicability of the system before extending it to  a wider area. Satisfactory results having been  obtained in the East, arrangements are now being  made to extend the-work to the Western Provinces. The new field to be organized will receive the benefit of the experience of men who  have been associated with the co-operative work  since its inception. Manitoba, Saskatchewan and  Alberta are the provinces now to be organized.  British Columbia will in all probability shortly  follow.

Woods  How Pleasant to Contemplate  Canada's war expenditure for  next year will be about 81,000 per  man, this being calculated as the  cost of raising, equipping and maintaining our troops al the front and  under arms in Canada. In this way  lhe estimate probably will bc exceeded on account of the expenditure of ammunition and the heavy  strain upon artillery and rifles. On  a basis of a force of 250,000 men,  Canada's war expenditure next year  will aggregate from $200,000,000 to  $250,000,000.

The j  danger is that on a separate day the |  voting will only bring out the ex-i  tremes of both sides, leaving a large j  mass of voters unrecorded. You will  agree with me lhat it would be very  unsatisfactory if only about 50 per  cenl. of the electors, should record  their voles and a bare majority of  these were cast on either side.
