No mailer how hard limes arc,  Enderby people always figure they  are money ahead if they partake of  Paddy Murphy's Christmas Dinner,  and this year the bookings indi-  cale-a larger crowd lhan ever.  Mrs. Russell Thompson and son,  who have been visiting her sisters,  Mrs. C. E. Strickland and Mrs. Phil  Ahier for the past month, left for  Vancouver Tuesday on their return  lo their ho'nie, at Silverlon, B.C.  The Greenwood Ledge hits lhc  nail on lhe head when it says: "If  rural merchanls knew how to advertise and would, the howl about  mail order houses gelling business  would be no louder than a frozen  whisper."  Thc Mara Musical & Athletic Association will hold a dance in aid  of the hall funds.on the evening of  Dec. 31st, when an admission fee of  75c will be charged the gentlemen,  and the ladies will bc expected lo  bring refreshments.  Thc.Red Cross Christmas market  stall will be held in the Crane  building, next to the Cily Hall, Saturday afternoon, Dec. 18lh. Thc  regular 10c tea will bc served- Contributors are requested to leave all  parcels al the Brownie tea rooms.  Enderby shoppers going to Armstrong who enjoy flowers and  wish to get something for the Xmas  table, are urged to "look in" the  flower stall opened by Mrs. A.  Buckley, next lo Monro's, where she  has all kinds of polled plants and  cut flowers. She is featuring California violets.  A very strong series of reels will  bc shown at the Opcnrllousc next  Friday and Saturday evenings, including lhc fourth episode of ihe  great drama "The Master Key';" and  other picture plays of comedy and  drama. The animated weekly of  world events is alone worlh lhe  price of admission.  Enderby loses another of her respected young men in the departure, on Monday, of Mr. Edwin H.  Corpe, for Vancouver. Mr. Corpc  has been ledger keeper in the Enderby branch of the Bank of Montreal for two or three years, and in  that time has developed sterling  qualities, not only in the banking  business but also in his grasp of  social and civic affairs, and in his  promotion from Enderby to Vancouver he takes with him the best  wishes of all patrons of; the bank  here as well as those in'all circles  of social and business life.  ��������������������������� If thc work/of the past month in  gravelling thc Enderby-Salmon Arm  wagon road-is a fair,criterion, then  there can be no doubt:that road  gravelling:(in this district at least)  is costing thc Government far more  by the' steam shovel -ancl * road traction process,than.the same* work  would'cosl if it .were* done by local  teams and"local men.;- With six or  eight-teams hauling from the Twigg  gravel pit il should have been an  easy matter to" gravel .the \two mile's  of road in a month's time, "whereas"  with the steam traction outiiton the  job for one month, there is still a  mile and a half, or thereabouts, lo  be completed. And with the steam  I ruction, all the money paid out on  Ihe work goes out of the..district,  even to the' fuel for thc traction.  IN RESTRAINT! OF TRADE  Any law in"restraint of trade is a  bad law and would bc held .to be  .unconstitutional if put lo a test'. A  legal holiday "can be declared only"  by the law-making power of. any  country, and even" this power'docs  nol penalize the individual if* hc  serves his patrons on a legal holiday. * There i.s no law restricting  trade on a legal holiday, but no legal  business done on that day can he  recognized j_n_ 1 aw._ It Js on 1 y in  ~small"confniuuities tIfat "we soifiTF  limes see misdirected municipal  bodies presume lo scl lhc hours for  doing business for any portion of  lhe community, and Ihen it is done  more as an accommodation lo the  few al thc expense of the many. It  is a policy thai will do more lo destroy the business prestige of a community than any olher policy thai  could bc adopted, for it takes by  force of law from thc individual thc  right of a free agent to serve his  patrons and the community. No  one would dispute the right of thc  businessmen of Enderby to lake a  half holiday every Thursday afternoon if Ihey so desire, pari of the'  year or all of the year. But for lhe  municipal body to pass a by-law  restricting businesmen and restraining business on that day, under a  penally, musl work nol only against  !he direct inleresls of business but  certainly has and will force trade  out of Enderby and inlo other  channels. No olher community in  the Province plays such a joke upon  itself and its businessmen. In other  communities businessmen do gel together and between them agree lo  lake a half-holiday, but in all these  communities a small store or two  will remain open in order to serve  the piiblic. In Enderby, however,  for reasons best known to the businessmen . themselves, the.y do nol  appear lo be able to do this, and so  they have to invoke the aid of thc  municipal council to compel them  lo make it impossible for thc people  of the town and district to make  any purchases in Enderby Thursday afternoon. If the 1915 Council  is not,remembered for any of its  excellent efforts, in the annals of  lime, it will bc remembered for the  joke it has played upon the retail  merchants of lhe community.  CANADIAN PATRIOTIC FUND  Mr. F. Nation, Provincial secretary of the Canadian Patriotic Fund  addressed a small audience in K. of  P. Hall iasl Friday evening on the  great need of a more lively interest  being shown by the people of Enderby and dislrict in the noble'  work being done by the organization, and its greal need of more  liberal support in the mailer of  finances. Mr. Nation is a strong  speaker, and did not-fail to impress  the small,audience wilh lhe importance of tlie mission he was oul upon  and to show how yitally interested  the community and. the country as  a whole is in carrying oul thc work  the organization has taken the responsibility lo do.-  It will be .necessary for the Dominion to raise more than seven  million dollars for distribution,  among the dependents of the men  who have'-gone tp tlie front, for lhe  coming year. Of this amount this  Province must raise $700,000, and  of lhis $700,000, the proportion to  bc paid by Enderbv has been put  at $800. It is likely that more than  this amount-will bc necessary, for  recruits are going forward-in larger  numbers each monlh, and it is the  duty "of -the Canadian" Patriotic  FundVo see that'their'dependents  arc-provided ,for.���������������������������-V . -. ���������������������������*-*i1', ,:;���������������������������,  - The' ' speaker i explained, "..what,  olher localities,are* doing, Vind;,,by  comparison - showed .' lhal Enderby  dis!rict ;xhad, fall_iv7;l'aiv.i short^;of  doing.its share/The town'of Silver-  ton, in thc Slocan," was .contributing  $1,100 per month ' to the ,Fund,  Phoenix is giving $l,500~per month  and Nelson $17,000 per year. This,  he said, would give some idea as'lo  the manner in which olher localities are .taking hold of lhe problem  and meeting it.  The requirements of the organization, Mr. Nation-said, are rapidly  increasing. The expenditures have  risen from $10,000 per month, in  the first few months of the Fund's  existence, to $500,000 per month,  and this will soon be. increased to  $700,000 per month. At the.presenl  lime the balance'to thc credit of the  Fund is $2,780,000. If contributions should slop -it would mean  that the work of the organization  would have to cease..  In regard to criticism that is  sometimes heard of lhc administration of thc fund, llie speaker said  the direct cost of administration on  I h e_f u n d s.o Lib c=_o rga n ization.is.just  one-half of one per cenl.   The bal-  City Council Advised Not to Go  on with Quarterly Tax Collections  At thc regular meeting of the City  Council Monday evening, wilh His  Worship the Mayor in the chair and  Aldermen Dill, Faulkner and Hartry  around lhe table, Ine question of re-  survey of sub-divisions 211, 211a  and 211b was.brought to Uie-atlen-  liqn of lhe Council, by Mr. A. C.  Skaling,-who slated-thai the registration of a number, of titles in his  hands was being* held up pending  scllicincnl of disci;cpcncics in these  surveys.  Aid. Faulkner stated in this connection, that it was very necessary  lhat all oustanding questions regarding properly lines should be  definitely .settled as soon as* possible ancl instanccd'liis own case, in  which, notwithstanding,thai he had  given pari of his property on Evergreen Avenue for the widening of  the-street, he was still being taxed  for same; that he had spoken to thc  assessor about the -matter, but' he  had said that until the land in question had been deeded to thc city, he  must continue to assess il to him.

The speaker said lo  him, such remarks were a disgrace  lo Ihe person giving utterance lo  Ihem, and he could not conceive  how any palriolic citizen, could say  such a'thing or listen lo it. We  who slay at home, he said, have nol  sacrificed anything yel for lhc  cause of'freedom.- We might be a  lillle poorer, bul we have made no  real sacrilice.

Up  to the. present lime Enderby has  paid into ihe fund the sum of $o0.00  which does nol count the* sum now  in hand and to be turned over after  the first of the year. This is a long  way from Ihe S800 which i.s required from Enderby for 15)10, and  he hoped each individual citizen  would ask himself if he was honestly trying lo do his part in the  great undertaking.

THURSDAY, DECEMBER 16, 1915  CANADA TO BE ASKED FOR LOAN  , The phenomenal success of the rcccnlly-iloaled  Canadian loan of .$50,000,000,-when thc amount  subscribed was $105,000,000, $55,000,000 ol'  .which wns converted i 1SJL0 a credit loan lo he-used  in lhe purchase of munitions, elc.,'}in Canada for  the* Mother Land, has made it possible for Britain  lo approach Canada wilh the-suggestion that a  further loan of lhis nature he floated in thc Dominion. Of lhc proposed loan Brit ton B. Cooke  writes: "That Canada the Borrower may soon become Canada lhe Lender, and that Britain Ihe  Lender may.soon become Britain lhe Borrower  from Canada is a prospccL which is loday being  seriously discussed in financial circles in England'nol as represented by Mr. Robinson.    Thc case  Mr. J. M. Robinson, of Naramata, the idealist's  home on Okanagan Lake, is a promoter of the  first rank. Hc is more. He is an idealist, who  lives and yearns and works to make his dreams  come true. Hc is, however, only a man, and hc  has to deal wilh men. To him more lhan lo any  other single man Ihe peach bell of lhc Okanagan  owes its birth and development. When all lhe  hills sloping lo lhe Okanagan Lake south of  Okanagan Centre, were-given over lo lhe pasture  of roaving herds of callle and horses, J. M. Robinson made" lhc discovery that the soil and climatic  conditions of lhat section were suitable for peach  growing. He went to work. Hc had ideas and  iiursed ideals. Hc interested financial men, laid  out Peachland, and went to Eastern Canada and  induced men of comfortable means lo move to  lhe Okanagan and go inlo thc peach-growing in- _   duslry. Here he nnidc his first mislakc WhileI g^ Cordwood,"' -  these people he induced lo move lo lhe Okanagan ^ _^_- _ '  were, many of Ihem, financially independent, and  were of lhe finest type of Canadians, they knew  ittlc or nothing aboul the industry they were induced lo enter upon. Result: many failures. As  is usually lhe case, the promoter. Mr. Robinson,  was blamed for lhe failures.. And is loday. This,  of course, is wrong. It is also awkward for Mr.  Robinson. But his shoulders are broad, and he  can stand it. After Peachland, he laid out Summerland; Ihen Naramata. Each case was a duplicate of lhc olher. But each new plan was drawing nearer his ideal. However, the people he'interested wilh him did not change io any marked  degree. All were prepared to,invest Iheir money  in the land Mr. Robinson had lo sell. Mosl of  Ihem expected peaches to grow upon thc trees  without effort on Iheir part, and when Ihcy were  ripened Ihcy looked for Ihem to walk oil' to mar-  Come and buy your winter ^supply before prices advance.

All of which was romantic, bul it did nol make  for success. . What- was 'required in lhe Peach  Belt of thc Okanagan was nol so much "retired"  ollice men of. very fine natures, as men of.no  means and men accustomed to working in the  ground. This is no more true of peach growing  lhan hog growing or hay growing. To put  "retired" business men���������������������������men accustomed to cily  life and cily ways���������������������������on to undeveloped land and  expect them lo succeed is like pulling bank clerks  and office men as ollicers over troops at lhc front.  Failure must result. No doubt Mr. Robinson is  wiser today than he was a dozen years ago. But  he has had to pay dearly for the experience.  The other day, at Otlawa',.Mr. Robinson was arrested on a charge of obtaining mony under false  pretenses, and at.thc preliminary hearing he was  held for trial in the higher courl oh the charge  laid. Il is alleged that he induced one Mr. Harry  K. Bowes, of Ottawa, to part wilh fifty shares of  C. P.

The total revenue for the i s'Hisiaclor-y  monlh of November is $17,072/150.70, an increase  of $7,570,020.10 over lhat of November of last  vear and lhe largest for anv iiHinlh-in the historv  * .      ��������������������������� *���������������������������** ��������������������������� *���������������������������'  of llie Dominion.  For Ihe eight months of Ihe present fiscal year  ending November .'.Olh lhe total revenue aggregates $1(11.750.000 as against $00,100,000 loVlho  lasl fiscal year, when, owing lo the ell'ecl of lhe  war trade was badly demoralized during Angus!,  September, October and November of the eight  months in question The estimate of the Minister  of Finance that his.budget of February last would  realize thirty millions of additional revenue is  now certain to bc substantially exceeded.  The policy adopted by lhe Government at the  outbreak of lhe war of proceeding only wilh  works actually under contract is now bearing its  full I'ruil. For the first eight months of the current fiscal year the ordinary expenditures show a  reduction of over ten million dollars and the cap-  ilal expenditures of about three millions. Between increased revenue and decreased expendi-  lure the financial position lhis year as compared  with Ihe previous year shows a favorable balance  of twenty-sever, millions. The Dominion i.s thus  daily being made stronger to meet lhe increns-  this inordinary activity the C. P. R. is enlarging  its facilities at West St. John. In Montreal the  general business conditions appear' to bc most  rom all accounts. In Toronto I  noticed the same confident lone. Optimism now  is the prevailing factor.

PRUNING SCHOOLS  In 1911, the first year pruning schools were  offered by the Department of Agriculture, 25  were held, and in 1015 the number increased to  17. As these schools proved lo bc very beneficial  to lhe fruit-growers, the Department has decided  to offer Ihem again. Some requests have already  been made, and as lhere will undoubtedly bc a big  demand for Ihem again this year, it is hoped  lhat applications will bc pla.ced wilh the secretary  of thc Farmers' Institute as soon as possible. No  fee will be charged for lhis instruction, but pupils  will, as on previous years, be required to provide  their own pruning'shears, a saw, and a pocket-  whetstone. 11 is hardly necessary lo present the  important advantages lo be gained from lhis  priming school instruction. This is one subject  on which the orchardisl cannot have too much  information.  thc brand of thc butter on thc label, the storekeepers can readily sell thc butter at 5c a pound  more than hc can get for butter wrapped in paper  lhat is not printed, and the bultcr-makcr gets the  advantage in 5c a pound more for his butter from  the merchant.  It is the duty of every butler maker to comply with the law in this matter. Some butter  makers have only a cow or two, and make so little  butter that it (loesyiiot appearytoTtheni that they  can afford to have their butter wraps printed.  They, do not like lhc 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 are  printed with the words "Fresh Dairy Buller" but  do not bear the name of. the maker. However,  these' wrappers' fill the requirements of thc law  governing this point, and can bc bought in small  quantities at the rate of 50c a hundred in 100 or  50 lots.

WITHDRAWAL FROM BALKANS DENIED  Under dale of Dec. 8lh, a Paris dispatch "aid:  "That Britain, against ilic wishes of the oilier allies, favors the withdrawal of the expeditionary  forces from the Balkans, is strongly hinted by  thc following which was stated in lodnVs session  of the allied-war council by a high French official:  Tf England persists alone in leaving Saloniki then  the remainder of thc allies will continue lo aid  Serbia.' Sir John French is understood to have  brought up a suggestion that thc Balkan-campaign be abondoncd, and hc is said lo have met  wilh opposition, not only from Jofl'rc but from  the other allied representatives. It has been known  in France for some weeks lhat Britain is far from  satisfied with the condition of affairs in the Bal-  '- leans. Several speakers in thc British parliament  have called thc Saloniki expedition useless, holding that they arrived too late to.carry oul any  campaign and that thc number of troops'is far too  small to give .real aid to Serbia."  This dispatch passed both the French and British censors. But from Paris, two' days later  comes another dispatch giving a sweeping denial  of that sent out from the same source under date  of Dec. 8th. "These allegations," said a high official, when a copy of llie dispatch was submitted  to him, "could only have been devised by thc correspondent's imagination. They are all absolutely false, and I should like you-to deny them most  categorically. It is-untrue that a French official  ever made such statements as the message contains. It is untrue .that England wants to leave  Saloniki. It is untrue that Field Marshal Sir John  French suggested lo thc Allies', war council that  thc Saloniki expedition be abandoned. It is untrue that a difference of opinion has arisen between. Field Marshal French, and General J off re,  or between Field Marshal French and other Allied  representatives. Complete unity of-view exists  between England and France regarding Saloniki.  Great Britain docs not propose to abandon Serbia.  The Balkan expedition >vill go on'with the French  and British fighting side by side."  statement is made in London that Britain intends  to have 4,000,000 men in the field by next April.  Three million men arc in the field and in training  now. Premier Asquith, supported by every member of the cabinet, will ask parliament within a  week to authorize thc recruiting of 1,000,000  more men.

Sound  financing and increased production have made  this great outlay possible with a minimum of  burden to lhc people of Canada. -  After a year and a quarter of war, Canada is  prosperous and better able than ever lo bear thc  extra burdens imposed through the war. That  ought, to be sufficient to confound those politicians who not so long ago .predicted lhat the Government's war legislation would not bring the results expected. --  Canada cannot do too much for the soldiers re-,  turning from service,at the front. The country  owes them a great debt" and the measures which  arc being taken by thc Borden Government will  ensure the payment of thc debt.- Everything that  the state can do to repay these men for the sacrifices they have made will be done.  It is cslmatcd that Canada's wheat yield this  year has been 336,258,000. bushels, as a result" of  thc Dominion Government's campaign for increased production. Sixty-eight per cent of that  will be available for export. In other words, Canada will send 228,132,00.0 bushels of wheat to help  feed Great Britain and her allies as a direct result  of thc measures taken a year ago.

"If  our enemies make peace proposals compatible  with Germany's dignity and safety, then wc_ shall  always bc ready to discuss them," said he: "The  war can bc terminated only by a peace which will  give the certitude that war \\i\\ not return. We  all agree about that. So long as in the countries  of our enemies the guilt and ignorance of statesmen arc entangled -with confusion of public opinion, it would be folly for Germany to make peace  proposals, which would not shorten, but would  lengthen thc duration of the war. First, the mask  must be torn from their faces. At present they  speak of a war of annihilation against us. We  have to take this fact into account. Theoretical  arguments for peace or proposals of peace will  not advance us, will not bring the end nearer. If  our enemies make peace proposals compatible  with Germany's dignity and safety, then we shall  always be ready to discuss them. Fully conscious  of bur unshaken military successes, we decline  responsibility for continuation of the misery  which now fills Europe and. the whole Avorld. No  one can say that we continue the war because we  still desire to conquor this or that country as a  guarantee."  The theories advanced by Germany's enemies,  the chancellor said, had lost their force. People  had ceased speaking of a war of twenty years.  The pretext that the war was.being waged for the  protection of smaller nations had* lost its persuasive power, in view of recent events in Greece.  What is regarded as Britain's answer to the  German  chancellor's  open  offer of peace,  the  Our little lad was three years old, a merry  lillle boy;-  *  The pet of all  thc household, the  family  pride and joy.

Soon sickness seized lhe child we loved, and   .  vain was all our care,  We could but watch wilh anguished hearts  lhe pain we might not share.  At last he seemed to gain relief, and said  , with cheerful smile:  "Me wake up in thc "morning," then sank  to sleep awhile.  i  When morning came Ihe little form in death  was cold and still,  Forever hushed thc joyous laugh that used  our hearts to thrill..
