HEAVY  EARTHQUAKE FELT  'r Wednesday morning a few minutes aflcr 6 o'clock, a heavy earthquake was felt in Enderby,' and,  according lo reports received from  olher points, the shock was distinctly felt throughout-the-Valley.'  The direction of the shock seemed  to be from southwest to northeast.'  The first evidence of the quake was  an uncanny tipping of the building  to Ihe northeast, accompanied by  the creaking of lhc woodwork.  This was followed by Ihe swaying  of Ihe electric light and telephone  poles and thc tightening and  loosening of lhc wires, as if swept  by a hurricane. There was no perceptible Iremor preceding or following the shock.   T. If. Calder left on Monday for  Penticton, where he has been appointed principal of lhe Pcnliclon  public school. In Ihe three years  that Mr. Calder was head of the Enderby school he established an  enviable record for efficiency, and  one that sets a standard for his  successor lhal can hardly be surpassed. He put the Enderby  school upon a sound educational  basis and developed in the staff ancl  children an ideal lhat will ever be  an incentive lo all who follow him  in the educational work here. He  goes lo Pcnliclon with the best  wishes of his many friends that the  good work established here will be  continued  lhere.

Jackson, laid by his  former partner, Mr. Dakin, was  dismissed by Magistrates Patten,  Graham and Wright. The charge  was that .with intent lo defraud,  Jackson had inserted in thc minute  book of the company a resolution  declaring a dividend on certain  istoelerwlieii-:is=-inmiltei*-()fV-a(4l--no-  such resolution had been passed.  The prosecution was conducted by  A. II.��������������������������� Macneil, K.C.. and Ihe defense by S. S. Taylor K.C., bolh of  Vancouver, ancl A. 0. Cochrane of  Vernon.  Ex-Provincial Constable Oland,  Who left Enderby early on the outbreak of: war for active service at  lhe front, -wilh Rein Brown, writes  to B. Johnstone from lhe front, under date of July 13lh. He. wishes  to be remembered lo all Enderby  friends. From his Idler il is 'apparent he has been in some of lhc  thickest of lhe fighting at the Yprcs  front. Al the time Rein Brown was  killed in action, Oland was in lhe  hospital, ii fever patient. He says  of Rein's dcalh: "Tell the boys  Brown died like a man, and was  right with his gun when he go I il.  lie was hil iu the back of his head  and neck by a piece of shell, and  died instantly."  "She is a warm baby, 'Buck'," hc  writes, "and believe me, I will be  ii pleased boy when peace once  more i.s here; and Canada i.s good  enough for me. Talk about shells  and bullets���������������������������gee whiz, there seems  lo be no scarcity of Ihem in Germany. But wc are having a very  quiet time at present, although doing quite a bit in lhe front line of  Irenches. Il is hell in a way, and  yet, outside of lhe night when we  have to stand lo, expecting things  to happen all the time, I am beginning to enjoy  it.  "The English front is at present  quiet.    Wc are getting nothing lo  what the French have been getting,  although we are liable lo think we  arc. doing it  all.    The  French  artillery is wonderful. The boys have  great' fun 'at times,' hollering over  lo thc Germans.    You can imagine  the remarks.   Ancl the Germans are  jusl iis good answering back.    You  see  the  trenches are quite  close���������������������������  from  500 to 30 yards apart.    The  snipers get quite a few, and mostly  head   wounds.       Am   gelling quite  expert    al    digging   dugouts.     We  generally   spend   the   day   digging  one  and   then   have   lo  get  oul  to  reserves, do a stunt there and then  .to   billets���������������������������generally   an   old   cow  stable���������������������������-but   never  away   from   lhe  German shells; in fact il is as bad  away as in lhe first line, in many  ways.     Some   of  our  first   lot   arc  having leave in England, ancl as we  are part of Ihe bunch, 1 am looking  forward   to  it.    We  only  get  thc  amouni   equal    lo   six   dollars   a  month   while   here���������������������������payed   twice  monthly���������������������������then have a feed and. arc  broke a  "Thev  are sending us over some  souvenirs this morning. They  call them .'whiz-bangs.' They arc  about six pounders, and come kind  of sudden as their.name implies.  They sure keep a variety, everything from Jack Johnsons to dum  dum bullets; but the Irenches are  deep and thick ancl the' dugouts  pretty safe, so we manage to get  along and cook our bully beef and  lea."  Cessation of the war in Europe  will mean an enormous demand for  the lumber products of the Northwest- ancl -will make necessary  greatly increased shipping facilities  if utter paralyzalion of thc industry  is to be avoided. Assurance of  these facts -was given members of  the Federal Trade Commission at  Seattle on* Monday by Allan II.  Daughcrly, president oi' the Ocean  Lumber ��������������������������� ������������������������������������������������������'Company, one of the  heaviest cxporlers of lumber in  Pugel Sound.

THE ENDERBY PRESS AND WALKER'S WEEKLY  Thursday, August 19,, 1915  are only two of the astonishing results of German  science since last August. It is clearly demonstrated by these discoveries that it is going to require many months if not years to wear Germany  down as the Allies have set out to do. So far the  showing made by German science in this greatest  of wars has been remarkable, and the British are  the first to recognize this and to "give the devil  his due." What Germany will be abje to accomplish after the war is another question, depending  upon the length and the outcome of thc struggle.  We went fishing.- Most of the water and all of  lhe fish that were in Mabel Lake when we stalked  forth to fish arc still there. Wc had six bites,  two or three hundred raises, stcen strikes and  landed two fish. Our hands were blistered, neck  scorched, lips parched, and two blisters appeared  on the boat seat. But it's great sport, lhis rowin'  and rowin' round and round in thc sweltering  sunshine and watching thc fish peacefully finning  about in the cool, dark depths of the lake.

Arc you trying to get your neighbors to join  'with you in buying and using improved farm  machinery? There is hardly a farmer in this district���������������������������or any other���������������������������but that should bc practicing  this form of co-operation. Consider, for example  how many hundreds of thousands of farmers  have plowed around slumps summer aflcr summer their whole lives through, simply because  each one did not feci able lo buy a slump puller,  when by joining together all could have cleared  their land of stumps at a minimum .of expense  and without one inconveniencing the other.  Check over a list of farm implements that  might be owned in common, and sec ii' you cannot pick out certain neighbors who would "go in  with you" in buying and using some of them lo  advantage. It is an unprogressive farmer who  does nol own some implement in co-operation  wilh his neighbor. No matter how well oil' he  may be, he should nevertheless pursue this cooperative policy as a matter of encouragement  and help to his less prosperous neighbors, who  may thus get help they would otherwise have to  do without, and their farms and the community  would bc thc more fully developed. Thus, not  only would their farms be increased in value,  Anil vbiirs wouldVflso.  Judging from the strenuous activity going on  throughout Canada to raise funds for tobacco  and cigarettes for lhe boys al thc front, this war  is going lo be won as much by pipe dreams and  collin nails as by shrapnel and high explosives.  How readily public opinion changes. A little  more than a year ago, cigarette*smoking was  looked upon as the curse of man, and laws were  passed making il a criminal'offense for men to  indulge. Today men, women and children are  sacrificing many personal comforts in order to  contribute'to the. tobacco fund for the men in the  trenches. The god of war seems to stand in  with Ihe tobacco men and munition centres, while  legitimate business languishes and sanity falters.  EXTRACTING FOOD FROM THE AIR  - In thc American Review of Rcivews for August  Charles F. Spcare estimates thc operating cost  of thc war at $14,000,000,000, and the loss in thc  destruction of property, $10,000,000,000. At thc  close of the first year of war the operating cost to  date for the different belligerents may bc set  down as follows:  Great Britain    $3,500,000,000  France  2,800,000,000   ���������������������������  Russia     2,800,000,000  Jtalv         500,000,000  Germany and  Turkey   3,000,000,000  Austria-Hungary      1,500,000,000  This total'of over $14,000,000,000 docs not  show as high a progressive rate of expenditure as  some commentators have indicated. It is .true  that thc cost to Great Britain has enormously  increased: whereas, in April, it was at the daily  rate of $10,000,000, it is now $15,000,000 per day.  England but recently began to "speed up," and  there can bc no doubt that in thc present high  cost she is paying dearly for early inefficiency  in equipment, etc.  In general the year's war cost has equalled thc  ten-year expense of equipping and maintaining  thc armies and navies of Europe. It is equal to  thc cos-t of all previous wars since Napoleonic  wars, estimated at $0,700,000,000; with $5,000,-  000,000, thc cost of thc United States Civil War;  with $2,500,000,000, the cost of the Franco-  Prussian War; with $1,165,000,000, thc cost of  the Spanish-American War; with $1,000,000,000,  thc cost of thc Boer War; $2,500,000,000, the cost  of the Russian-Japanese War, and $2,100,000,000,  thc cost of the two Balkan Wars.  Assuming thc wealth of the countries at war to  be $400,000,000,000, il is found that thc total cost  of thc war for a year, relative to national wealth,  is as follows: Great Britain, 4 per cent; Germany,  3.75 per cent; France, 5.60 per cent; Russia, 7 per  cent; Austria, 8 per cent, and Italy, after a year  from May 23, 6 per ccnl.

The world has had its  eyes opened by the cruel war now being waged,  and many eye-openers not yet thought of are yet  lo come, no doubt. But with all the German  nation's resourcefulness, it is slowly recognizing  lhal the combination of circumstances operating  against il, must sooner or later wear the nation  down and bring it to the point of exhaustion.  Forced to it by the war and the English blockade, the German nation promptly discovered that  gas and electricity made petroleum unnecessary,  and her scientists have now demonstrated that  artificial nitrates are an excellent substitute for  imported saltpeter, and lhat slrawmeal and artificial fodder yeast obtained in unlimited quantities from the air, are as nourishing as imported  Russian barley. Extracting nitrogen from the  air for powder and agricullural fertilizing purposes, and albumen from lhe air for food yeasts  A Home report says: "Prospects of peace,which  until a fortnight ago were considered remote in  well informed Vatican circles, arc now unexpectedly improved. The impression prevails in the  Pope's entourage that the olive branch is aboul to  be oll'ered by Germany, which, unvnnquished,  and still sufficiently powerful to continue the war,  is able to take the initiative in a peace movement  without assuming the role of supplicant.  It is said Germany will propose acceptable  terms of peace to the Allies. These terms it is  claimed will prove that it is Germany's intention  lo end the war without securing great territorial  advantages or increasing ils power.- They will  merely safeguard complete liberty and insist on  equal rights wilh other nations.  In lhis connection, Frank M. Simonds, military  writer in the Review of Reviews, summing up the  year of war, finds lhat Germany has won great  success on land, bul has lost sea power and her  colonies. Me thinks that such a peace as is proposed could not be acceptable from the standpoint of the Allies, for it would signify German  domination of Europe. Hc does not believe the  Allies can think favorably of any peace plans  until the tide of victory has turned. He does not  find the spirit or determination of thc Allies ih  any way weakening, although they may have  fullv two years' more of war before them.   '  On lhe other hand, the German papers, commenting on the reports of peace proposals emanating from Berlin, declare such reports to be  without foundation, and claim that in view of  the Teutonic successes in the Eastern front, Germany should be the last lo sue for peace. From  olher sources indications point to the feeling that  peace proposals at this lime are premature.  It stops the leaks in hay-feeding and turns loss into profit.

HENDRICKSON, Proprietor  Next the Fulton Block, Enderby  "'��������������������������� Until the swine raisers in Canada adopted the  bacon type as their model, Canadan pork products-possessed a very indifferent reputation.  Since then a valuable export trade has been built  up. In competition with, tlie finest bacon in thc  world, Canadian bacon commands a price on lhc  British market very close to thc top. Its excellence has appealed also to thc home consumer  until the Canadian market is able los absorb a  larger and larger proportion so lhat less andTcss  can>be spared for the. export trade. For this  rcasbn there should bc no relaxation on thc ,parl  of breeders to adhere to the bacon model in his  breeding and feeding operations.  Hogs, like other classes of live stock, must bc  judged, first from thc standpoint _of.the.market,  and secondly from their adaptability to yield pro:  fi tabic returns for food consumed. Form, condition and weight largely determine the appreciation pf thc market, while on constitution,-nervous temperament and feeding qualities, depend  thc thrift or ability to convert thc maximum of  large quantities of food into a valuable marketable product.  Happily, in the raising 'of hogs for the bacon  industry "the"interests of the producer and consumer in no way conflict. It was for a time contended by many farmers that it cosl more to  produce thc bacon hog than the animal of thc  thick far type. Thc results obtained at experiment stations supported by the experience of  many extensive and successful breeders, have all  gone to show that, if anything, thc contrary is  true. In experiments by Prof. Day, at thc  Ontario Agricultural College, out of six groups of  pigs, thc groups scored first and third by thc  packer on the basis of their adaptability for the  export trade-were first and second in economy ol  gain  The hog required for the production of thc  Wiltshire side, should be not less than 170 pounds  nor more than 220 pounds, the mosl desirable  weight being 180 to 200 pounds alive when fasted.

PIPER, City Decorator  Box '13, Enderby.  man, the Narew, the Bug and the  Vistula for himself.   He had a good  excuse  for doing so, because Napoleon, in setting up lhc Duchy of  Warsaw, had taken the whole territory away  from all  of them,  and  the Czar, as (he deliverer of Europe  was.able.lo do pretty much as he  pleased.   Now the frontier, of 1795  was manifestly a military frontier,  and chosen for that purpose. When  the Germans have reached it again,  and protected it from flank attack  by   integrally   occupying   the   old  German Provinceof Coin-land their  task will have been completed.    II  will take a military effort equal to  the one they have just exerted to  dislodge  them.    That  time is  not  yet,  but   lo  all   appearances  it  is  rapidly   approaching.     While   thc  Grand   Duke  is  taking his armies  to thc second line, between .Kovno  and Brest, it is becoming considerable of a question whether the line  will bc there when hc arrives.   He  cannot   move   his    great  army   at  speed,  for if hc did  the pursuing  Teutons would break through and  lake great toll of prisoners.    And  while he has to move slowly back  to"the new line, the Germans are  moving rapidly towards it.   Kovno,  (which late reports say is still in  the hands of the Russians, but is  being  evacuated)   is   evidently   in  danger of falling. Midway between  Kovno   and   Brest   is   Bialostok,   a  great    railway    centre.      Hitherto  this has been kept safe by Ihe gallant  resistance  of  the   fortress  of  Ossowetz,  on   Ihe  Robr   river,  bul  now, in addition to a new assault  beyond the Bohr, there i.s thc prospect   of   another   attack    by   lhe  armies   that   crossed   the   Narew.  These  armies  may  be  said  to  be  sweeping eastward, with one flank  moving   along   the   Bug   and   the  olher held on thc Narew at Lourza,  whose prospect for holding out is  of   the   poorest.     When    the  line  moves east from Lourza it will not  be long reaching Bialostok, if the  present  rale  continues.    The  Germans  then  have  only  to  continue  their progress  along" the Warsaw-  Pet rograd   railway    to   effectually  outllank Grodno. * When that happens, and possession of thc Niemen  line has been added to possession  of the Narew, the Vistula and the  Bug, further offensive campaign on  the part of thc Germans -is not essential  to "them.1  If-Ihcy continue  their effort to break up thc Russian  armies after that the object will be  more   political   than   military,  and  they may pursue it or not according to their estimate of the military  task set for them elsewhere."  This summary gives some clear  idea of thc extent and importance  of the campaign on the Eastern  front, which is most confusing if  read only in the light of thc Teuton  and Russian reports sent out.  MORE FROM THE FRONT  Constable Bailey this week received a letter from C F. Oland,  daled somewhere in Belgium, July  29th, in which Oland says: "I  hear 1 am dead. Well I am vcry  much alive. If you could have seen  me hiking out of the trenches with  a machine gun and about forty-  pounds of kit on my back you'd  think so. We do not go in so fast,  but coming oul we can sure dangle.  Bul it takes quite a few bullets lo  kill a man, and I am still alive. I  was hit in the heel, bill that was  lhc nearest J have been so far, and  then it only damaged the boot.  IVrifra w f ill 1 \rsmi-y"'~~a bo u r B ro wirr  II seems very hard, after waiting all  winter in England to get it thc first  lime in. Of course he is clear of  ill trouble and no doubt belter off,  but* we .-don't look at it that way do  we? Things have been very quiet  along our front lately, but the  French have been busy, and there  i.s going to he lots doing all along  the line soon. I hope so as it will  have a big counting, ancl may help  lo end this blooming war.  "Howis the lodge getting on? Remember me to all the boys and tell  them I will be glad Avhcn I can get  back  among  them  again.    1  have  not  heard   from  Jim   Baird   for  a  long time.    He was wounded quite  a while-ago, but not badly.   Blood  poisoning  seems  to  be   the .worst  trouble, as a small wound may heal  up and then il will break oul and be  worse than ever again, and loss of  life   generally    follows   what   appears to be nol  a serious wound.  Of course the shock is bad in most  cases.     The   German  snipers  and  others turn their bullets around in  the cartridge so the big end comes  first,  which, as you may imagine,  tears a big hole when it'hits.   But  things go on jake. Wc get all wc  want to eat and clothes are plentiful, and talk aboul ammunition! thc  trenches are full of it.    The .Germans use a lot more rifle cartridges  than wc do, and keep up  a continual   shower  of  them    over  thc  line.    Of course we arc not backward, but they seem to have it bad,  and' the   least   lillle   thing  starts  them  going.  -Their machine guns  too are plentiful, and they arc not  bashful about using them.    But of  course  we  are  well  down  in  the  trenches and they don't bother us  much.    The Jack Johnsons are the  boys   that   make   you   think   abou!  home.    *    *    *    There were three  hundred  Strathconas in  their first  mix-up,  the  rest being in  reserve,  and there was 108 put out of business. Just half of the machine guns  went west; with four killed.    You  see, thc Germans lose a trench, then  they turn' around and shell ��������������������������� out  of il.   Of course, they get it as well  as we do, for our artillery is jake.  The Canadian artillery is second to  none when it comes to shooting and  getting there.    II has been said by  British regiments that they would  sooner have the Canadians than the  British. Of course, they all do their  best, and all units are doing all il  is possible for human beings to do,  and as for bravery, we see it all  over.   We had one man killed and  two wounded while trying to save  another, or rather getting him back  in thelrench.    He died about half  an   hour  afterwards.    In- fact, he  would have been belter oil' if left  alone.    But he had both legs shot  off  and  kept calling ��������������������������� for someone  to shoot him and put him out of his  misery.   It is a fright at times, bul  one forgets it -next day.   The Germans put bombs, in .their helmets,  and  when  the  fellows go to pick  them up they explode."
