THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 4, 1915  CONCENTRATION MEANS ATTAINMENT  When tbe mcii and women in any community  centre Iheir mental energy upon an object to bc  attained���������������������������an objeel lhat means in its attainment  their"individual -.and combined betterment���������������������������they  must win���������������������������cannot lose. And this.community or  any olher community is and must be just what  lhc individual members ol' Ihcy community arc  determined it shall bc. Wc hear*'much aboul  hard limes, poor business, etc.,- but very little  about lhc magnificent possibilities of Enderby  and dislrict. And .yet,, in .spite of thc croaking,  one can see wilh a discerning eye,, lhat splendid  progress is being made right under-the'croaker's  nose. Jl* lhe same amount oi" development work  goes on-thai has characterized the district within  lhc past year or two, it will be but a lillle while  until all lhc wooded section of thc district are  cleared and under cultivation.' It is marvelous  how much work has been done in this direction  in lhc past year. And when these many hundreds  of acres of fertile land arc brought to the producing stage, 'then will Enderby come into ils  own. Be of good cheer. Ail cannot go to war.  Bul all can combine to make the home district  "blossom like thc rose" and become productive.  No power on earth can successfully combat thc  concentrated power of the human mind; no  combination of circumstances ever can interfere  wilh.the. successful culmination of a. movement  having for ils object thc upbuilding of a community and the development of its dormanl possibilities; no community of men and women of  developed-menial' power can be defeated in its  ���������������������������objects if they be honorable and just; no community of men and women can long centre its  thought upon its fuller and completer development without-attracting to its aid the mental  stimulus and power of a host of olher strong.men  liiuVwomcirsimilar-mindcd. "* '~~~' -���������������������������'----  But il requires concentrated though I and effort  lo do it. Selfishness can have no place in such a  movement. Community-interest must come first  and musl.be lhe 'prime object all along tlie way.  Not of the few individuals, but of all.  Our people are too carger to grasp at straws in  reading the published war news. We must keep  the courage up, and'we must develop the will to  do, but it must be as the result of sane, reasonable  deduction, if any good is to come of it;"'otherwise  wc build up our spirits today as the result of a  censored "straw," only to have them cast down  lomorrowr. In looking to the new baltlefront; in  lhc Balkans, we must recognize lhat conditions  arc against us, and while they arc against us wc  must not expect too much. The shorter line to  base of supplies has operated up to tlie present  time in favor of thc Allied armies. Paris is nearer  lhc Western front than Berlin; so is London.  When Warsaw was held by thc Russians thc  Slav army also had an important advantage over  lhe Germans. But since the fall of Warsaw thc  advantage has been in favor of lhc enemy. In  lhc Western front thc advantage is still with the  Allies, and it is thc same on thc Italian front.  But in thc Balkans thc advantage of shorter  communications is all the other way. From London and Paris to the Western front it is less than  50 miles, while from Berlin it is 450 miles. From  Berlin to thc Eastern front it is 600 miles, from  Petrograd less than 200. From Berlin to thc  Balkan front it is 650 miles, with direct rail connections all thc way. From London to thc  Balkan front it is 3000 miles, and from Paris  2000, mainly by water. These distances tell their  own story, and must count against the Allies.  As for the Dardanelles campaign, that, says  Captain Ellis Ashmcad-Bartlett, the British press  representative in that campaign, is already lost.  With the connecting link forged by thc enemy  with the Bulgarians through Serbia, Berlin will  bc given short, all-rail connections with Constantinople, whereas the British and French forces  will be 2000 and 3000 miles away. This military  writer says the Turks have 800,000 troops under  arms, and lhc longer they fight the more formidable they become through experience in thc  methods of defence.  Where, then arc we to look for victory? Capt.  Granville Fortescue, in his forthcoming book,  "What bf lhc Dardanelles?" says it must be on  the Western front if at all. Capt. Fortescue,  of the United States cavalry, saw thc Dardanelles  and Gallipoli Peninsula campaign from the Turkish side as an American correspondent and a  London despatch says the fact that his book has  been passed by the censor is declared to be the  most significant piece of news received for a  long time from thc Dardanelles.  "The Balkan crisis comes at an opportune  time," says he. "Evacuation of the Dardanelles  can now be excused as a military necessity. He  who pushed thc plan can escape indictment of his  folly in the East. Whal would have been a blow  to English prestige can be explained away. The  gigantic failure and its cost, 100,000 casualties,  will become history."  This writer then goes on to point out what military men now believe of thc .probable outcome.  "If this war is to end in something more than an  inconclusive draw, Germany will have to bc  beaten in France and Flanders. Whenever pressure is brought to bear in this zone, far-flung German corps lly back to it like springs suddenly released, and if thc Teuton staff can induce its opponents to exhaust their energies in other fields,  the lost sections of France and Belgium will never  bc recovered."  It is oii thc Western front, therefore, close to  heart of the British Empire, that the star of hope  shines.  Buy your Flour while  the prices are low!

STOCK EXCHANGE AND OTHER LOANS  SIR CHARLES TUPPER DEAD  Sir Charles Tupper, the veteran Canadian  statesman, a former Prime Minister of Canada,  and lhe sole surviving member of the Fathers of  Con federation, died al his home in England last  Saturday morning, Ocl. 30lh, aged 9. years.  For half a century Sir Charles Tupper was in  llie very forefront of Canadian affairs. In lhat  lime he was premier of his native province, Nova  Scotia, minister of finance, minister of railways  and canals, high commissioner for Canada in  London, Prime Minister of Canada, and in all of  Ihesc positions Sir Charles had a mosl distinguished career. .Mis great resolution and courage in the face of any difliculty, however appalling, were sufficient lo inspire the most doubtful  follower, and his wonderful vision enabled him  lo foretell the splendid possibilities of Western  Canada at a lime when his prophecies were  derided as airy vaporings. lie lived to sec all  such prophecies fulfilled. In recent years he became physically weak, bul his mind was as clear  and active as when he was in the prime of life.  In a speech in Vancouver a week Or more ago,  Mr. Stevens, M.P.P., slated that, while in ordinary  limes  the banks of  Canada  had  about  ninety  jni 11 ion   dollars^of_ their   Canadian  depositors'  TnlmcTy iTVNc^  short-loans, they now have $165,000,000 of Canadian money there on the stock exchange, and he  asked why. So far as is known he is still waiting  for an answer���������������������������and is liable to wait. But thc  answer is simple: Because on stock-exchange  loans���������������������������short, big and rapidly made���������������������������the banks  can clean up 25 and 50 per cent as easily, or more  easily, than Ihey can make 0 and 8 per cent at  home. Canadian bankers are not going to put out  money in thc home towi> at 6 and 8 per cent  when they can spirit it lo New York and play the  slock exchange on gill-cdgc security and call  loans. The bankers arc not to blame. They arc  running a money-making business, and when thc  law permits them lo gather in the deposits of the  Dominion through their thousands of branches  it is only natural for them to take it and lend il  where' the security is good and the turn-over is  daily instead of quarterly or longer as it would  be at homd. It's the system that we want to get  after���������������������������nol the men who profit by it. War times  arc thc bankers' harvest. Money flies to where it  can make lhe biggest cleanup in the turn-overs  with thc least amount of risk.

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__theJo.v.ed^ones^ih-war-stricken-Europe-would-  gladden the heart and, for a brief spell, at least,  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 willsend ywrfri^^  on a Christmas Card?  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 snowing the samples.

A.large proportion of the soils of,British Colum-  jbiaj it says, are in need of lime.   Although mainly  ..applied to sweeten sour or acid soils, lime has  Vthree other important uses���������������������������it improves the tex-  :'.ture of soils, especially heavy clays, it makes plant  '.food in the soil more available to'crops, and it is  Va plant food.. The benefit^ of limin|fis seldom a  rresult of the last=inentioncd..u'sel. for'most soils  '".contain enough lime as a plant food. __,  ",'���������������������������    Soil acidity is detrimental to fertility in several  -respects.   Most important-is that acidity'tends to  "check the growth of alfalfa, clover, and other  -most valuable leguminous plants.   It is the lack of  lime in many sections of the.Province that pre:  Events thc culture bf alfalfa.   New lands are inclined to be acid and are benefitted by an application of lime, although common red clover seems  to do well on them for a number of years in spite  of the acid.   The accumulation of acid in peaty  ^soils. .very.often^makes. them*..iinprod"uctiye_until  this acid is neutralized by the application of lime.  * A simple and reliable method to detect soil-  acidity is by the use of blue litmus-paper. Secure  some of this paper from a druggist, and when the  ' soil is moist from rain make a slit in it with a  clean knife. Insert a strip of blue litmus-paper  and close the soil for fully five minutes. If the  paper becomes dotted with pink spots br'becomes  entirely pink, the soil is acid. -The test can also  be made as follows: Take a handful of the soil  and form a ball. Break the ball in half and put  thc paper between. Dry soil can be tested in the  same manner by wetting wilh soft water, preferably rain-water. Always allow fully five minutes to elapse before examining the blue litmus-  paper. ���������������������������  , In a summary ^pf. the findings of the Department the bulletin states that ground limestone  can probably be more cheaply procured and handled than any other form; that liihe, should be  top-dressed, not plowed in; that barnyard manure  or commercial fertilizers are necessary, in addition to lime to keep up the fertility of soils, and  that, for .-the economic use of all. fertilizers, including barnyard manure, lime is,.necessary.  There is not a public man in Canada today who  is as quick to grasp a situation, and is as conservative in his deductions, as Mr. George Bury,  vice-president of thc C.P.R. And he docs not beat  -about the bush in his remarks oh any subjectof  real importance. A week or more ago, Mr. Bury  paid a visit- of inspection to the West, and while  at Victoria he told the Colonist his impressions  gaineel on the trip.'  "In respect to-conditions in British Columbia;"  said he, "I made an extensive motor tour through  the Southern Interior, and on all sides noticed indications of returning prosperity. I was very  qlad fo see .such progress in mixed farming. This'  is the.keynote to true progress and prosperity for  the"'wliole country: Produce more and import  less. A coupie oi ears ago we used to have New  Zealand butter, Australian mutton, and vegetables from Oregon and Washington consumed .in  large quantities all over .the West. Today Canada  is exporting butter to Australia and New Zealand,  which shows that wc are making progress toward  the point of actuaHy^becoming an exporting  country instead of ah importing one. During my,  trip -through the -Boundary-;andi;.,Okanagan/ districts we;noticed many signs.of hew-settlement-in  the valleys, where the farmers-are-going'iif for  mixed production. T am corifident-that'.the future  of. British. Columbia* depends; very "largely upon  the degree in which* you produce: from the soil.  "Witli the. conclusion of the war, I look for  greater activity in Canada than ever' before. It  will.be but natural for us to,have an immense  immigration,from Europe. I do not suggest that  we are likely to witness any speedy return of a  period of inflated values or anything approaching  a 'boom,' nor do we'want it. What, thc country  needs is steady, solid progress, and Lam,confident  that wc have made thc turn and are well set going  along that road." '   *-  APPARENT IN CONTRAST TO THE ACTUAL  SAVING EVERY SCRAP  However lavish the British army  was at the commencement of hostilities, and indifferent to expenditure, things are now completely  changed, and'the strictest economy  is being enforced. Absolutely noticing is allowed to be .wasted. According to one correspondent at the;  front, everything is sorted into dif-'  fcrent parts and various sheds; and  the smallest pile and thc smallest  shed is that which contains, the  really useless rubbish.

They are matched, as to  pairs,, repatched, hob nails-pul in  them, painted with castor oil, arid  are as good as new.  In another place one sees a,stack  of sacks piled up to the ceiling, full  of buttons which have come off* the  really., worn out uniforms. * These  are going back to the- factories at  home. But no uniform is thrown  away until it is in rags. It can be  cleaned, washed and.'disihfected at  least five times, ancl then mended  by the.women especially engaged in"  this work. And when quite, done  for that khaki* is not thrown away.

A Vvell-attended meeting of the  Endery Egg Circle was held al the  City Hall Saturday afternoon to  hear lhe report of the secretary-  manager on lhe operations of the  Circle for the pasl six months. The  report, while complaining of lhc  lack of interest and hair-hearted  support given the manager, and  calling attention to weaknesses in  the* organization up lo the present  time, nevertheless gave ample evidence, of what was in store for the  poultrymen of the district if Ihcy  will but centralize their efforts ancl  concentrate upon producing for thc  market, which seems to bc almost  unlimited.- The report was read by  President Wilkinson: **  Chairman Enderby Egg Circle:  Dear Sir: As thc half-yearly  meeting of the first year of this  association.is to be held on the 30th  inst., I consider that the occasion is  a suitable one on which to bring  before you and the association an  unqualified statement, regarding my  position as manager, ancl my intention with regard lo my relations  with your association in future.  It is within your recollection that  I was personally mainly instrumental in starting this association.  I did so in the firm belief lhat there  existed an opening for the sale of  first-class eggs ancl poultry, and  that markets could without much  trouble bc found for the disposal  of our poultry produce.  That this i.s the case is amply  borne out, as in no instance have I  had ,ahy dillicully in disposing of  our eggs, and I am weekly in receipt of orders almost to an unlimited extent, which, owing to the  lack of support which has been accorded the Egg Circle from farmers  generally in the district, I have not  been able to lill. This has caused  a considerable financial loss to thc  district. '  Not only have the farmers ancl  poultry keepers generally kept  aloof from the association, but I  have also to complain of lack of  support from within thc circle. Thc  members have not been sending mc  all of their eggs all the time.' The  result of this is that I have had difficulty in meeting our existing contracts. Members have not been  supporting me lo thc extent which  I. have every right to expect, by not  bringing their eggs in to the appointed place at thc time set down  for them to do so, which times  were fixed with their approval so  far as could bc done, having.clue  regard to ihe proper carrying on of  affairs and keeping our promises  to customers as regards lime of  shipments, etc. In consequence of  this, I have frequently been compelled to make extra journeys to  and from Enderby, which could  have been avoided had members  done their plain duty.  By starting this Egg Circle,"I had  in view the benefit not only of my  own business as a poultryman, but  that of others also, and the district  generally, and to that end I was  quite prepared to sacrifice (and I  did sacrifice) much of my time for  lillle remuneration.

I am willing to give  two days a week lo pack and ship  eggs for thc Circle, but no more,  unless the association is willing to  pay me adequately for my lost time  !al rates to be agreed upon.  I    I have not only'given my time,  ��������������������������� but thc use of horse and buggy, and  my wife also has worked very hard  oii your behalf.  I wish to thank those members  who have loyally supported me and  ; sent in every egg they'had lo send,  j whether in large or small  quanli-  i ties, but unless every member does  this all thc time, il is quite useless  to carry on. .  The future of lhe association is  in vour hands. Yoii all can, if you  hustle around, get more members,  but if you continue lo carry out thc  favorite policy of the dislrict, sitting with folded hands ancl mouths  wide open wailing for the plums to  drop into them, you will find that  there will be no plums to drop.'  I hear complaints on all sides  about hard times. Here is an association which pays cash to its members���������������������������has paid out $1,005.62 to the  end of September���������������������������thc first six  months'of -its existence���������������������������and yet  the countryside is loo indifferent to  help it out for their own good. If  I withdraw, as manager, I withdraw  altogether, as-I decline to have my  own business hampered by any  connection with such lack of  energy ancl foresight.  C.  F.  Biggr, Sec-Man.  Following the reading of the report, a summary of lhe statement  showing the results of the half-  year's operations, together with a  statement made by Mr. G. Rosoman  who audited the accounts submitted to him, was read and duly  accepted. The statement showing  the financial condition of the Circle', made clear how economicably  the operations had been conducted.  Thc amount of money passing  through, the hands of lhc manager  to the members of the Circle for  eggs sold, was" $1,965. The actual  working, expenses in connection  with the handling of this amount  of business was given at $53.65. In  addition to this amount, thc sum.of  $41.46 was spent in the purchase of  supplies, egg cartons, stationery,  etc., and the sum of $81.92 was paid  out in freight. To these amounts,  the sum of $97.90, remuneration  paid to . the secretary-manager,  must be added, giving a total of  $274.90 as the.actual operating expenses on $1,965 worth of business.

The executive was also empowered  to make more stringent regulations  regarding the delivery of eggs to  thc packing centre by the members.  President Wilkinson reported an  effort being niade by the poultry-  men of Grindrod and Mara looking  to the establishing at these; points  of branch depots to work in .conjunction with the Enderby Circle,  and hc promised to give some ."time  to aiding in these arrangements.'  The price now prevailing, for  eggs was, 50c for No. Is, 36c for No.  2s and 18c. for No. 3s. All members having water-glass eggs were  also advised to. report the quantity  they have on hand. ,:  A vote of thanks was passed to  Mr. Rosoman for his gratuitous  services as auditor of the Circle's  accounts. ���������������������������"        <  In a letter to the president of the  Circle, Provincial . Poultry..^Inspector Upton gave some.information which all poultrymen could  profit by if they ^vould, in connection with the feeding of alfalfa  meal.
