THURSDAY, APRIL 13, 1916  THE HOSPITAL PROBLEM  Thc decision oi" thc City Council to purchase,  or take over, thc Worthington property from Mr.  Poison, to bc used as a hospital, makes the question a public one. and henceforth it should bc so  treated.   Thc question of maintenance is not settled by the purchase of llie building.   Tlie cost of  the building, wilh back interest, taxes and water  rales will reach  in  the neighborhood of $1000.  But even then the citv gets a verv good deal, as  the property is estimated lo bc worth $2,500 or  $3,000.   Now thai the question of building is settled, lhat of furnishing and maintenance will bc  the next problem-   This will occupy thc lime of  the hospilal board.   11 is hoped that some aid may  be   secured   from   the   Provincial   Government.  Perhaps this can bc done.   If not. then it will fall  upon individual aid, in the future as in the past.  It remains to be seen how far this can be made  successful.    Thc  ladies of thc auxiliary in  the  pasl succeeded very well.   With tlicir assistance  thc hospilal board may bc even more successful  in the future.   Rut there is one point that wc have  not seen covered al any public meeting called to  inunilv.  Thc Greenwood Ledge reaches thc conclusion  lhat, failing to find store ads in thc local papers  is lhc reason.why so many people read catalogues  and send cast for their goods.

We refer lo the hospital fees required under law lo be deducted by the Okanagan Saw  Mills and other companies employing men, cither  in the mills or in lumber camps. At the present  time, and for years past, this monthly fee of $1  from each man employed is turned over to Dr.  11. W. Keith, who has been very lair in explaining  lhat without this fee it would be impossible for  -anv-doelor to livehere ow"ingVo-llie verv-small-  amount of sickness in lhe town and dislrict. and  lie has said lhal the question of him laking and  running the hospital is not lo be considered. Al  the same time there is another point which il  seems to us should be covered. Various reasons  have been heard as to why we cannot gel government assistance for the hospilal. hut we believe tluv reason can be made clear when the position of the government is understood.  In all regulations governing hospital fees deducted under the law by mining, lumber and  oilier companies, il is understood lhal by the  monthly fee which each man bus to pay, the well  man pays For the sick man- The hospial fee of  $1 per monlh entitles lhc employee to free hospital and medical care during any sickness that  might befall him, other than venereal or alcoholic. In lhe case at point, the hospilal fee is paid  to Dr. Keith, who. in turn, in any case requiring  hospital care, pays lo the hospital lhe general  ward fee of so much per week for thc weeks or  portion of week lhat his patient is lhere. Naturally, lhere are very few cases among the. camp  or mill men requiring hospilal care. As a result,  the local hospital gets a very small per centage  of the monthly hospital fee, and the well man  does nol pay toward the upkeep of the institution  required by lhe sick man. though the fee required  lo be paid is paid by each workman.  Undoubtedly Dr. Keith is justified in laking lhc  Thc other day a local merchant was heard to  object strenuously to Thc Press taking business  ���������������������������advertisements���������������������������from businessmen outside, of  Enderby���������������������������in neighboring towns. It is needless  lo say "the aforesaid local merchant does not  carry'an ad in Thc Press. We wonder how this  aforesaid local merchant expects Thc Press to  live if il docs not get business from somewhere?  Thc columns of The Press arc open to him just  as they arc open to the neighboring-town  merchant. Thc price per advertising inch is thc  same to one as the other. If it pays the neighboring-town merchant to advertise in Thc Press, it  surely ought to pay the home merchant. And it  is all* a question of making il pay. The neighboring-town merchant advertises in Thc Press  not because he wants to help Thc Press along,  bul because an advertisement in The Press brings  him business���������������������������at a profit. If he can do il, why  can'l the home merchant do it? And if the home  merchant can do it and won't, is Thc Press to  sit down with folded hands and rust away? If  lhc home merchant docs not think hc can make  an advertisement in The Press pay him, and thc  neighboring-town merchant knows from practical experience that hc can make an advertisement in The Press pay him. whose fault can  this be?  There seems to be a faulty idea prevalent as to  thc mission of the home town paper.   And particularly as to its advertising columns.   Perhaps  it would bc as well to clear up this point once for  all.   Thc columns of a newspaper arc thc stock  ancl trade of the. man'or men whose money, has  been invested in  the venture.    Thc advertising-  columns arc thc same to the proprietor as thc  stock of dry goods on thc shelves to the dry goods  merchant, or the stock of groceries sold by the  grocer.   You do ncl go to thc grocer and say to  him,  "Here,   Mr.  Grocer,   because   you're-   the  home-town grocer, 1 want you to hand mc out a  pound of butler, or a can of peas, or a sack of  sugar.   1 don't think I ought to pay for it; it will  help you gel rid of your stock."   Nor do you go  to the dry goods merchant and say lo him, VMr.  Dry Goods man, I occasionally buy a spool of  thread from you, and because I do I do not think  you should sell goods  to my neighbor who is  living in competition with mc.'  These might appear to be far-fetched comparisons, but they are not, as every newspaperman knows. As was said before, thc columns of  a newspaper arc the proprietor's stock and trade;  yet there arc innumerable appeals made every  day or week by people who do not understand for  free space to advertise this, that or thc other,  "ll will help you fill your columns," they remark, "and may aid you in olher ways." Then  there is lhc home merchant who is backward  about advertising himself, yet claims that thc  local paper should not seek business elsewhere  because it might injure his���������������������������thc home merchant's���������������������������business, who makes no effort himself  lo hold trade in the town or to attract new business by using lhc columns of lhc home paper���������������������������  recognized bv all advertisers as thc best medium  __ shipment of Seeds just arrived.

E���������������������������derby  King Edward  A name that stands for the best in hotel service  King Edward Hotel,  P. H. MURPHY  Proprietor  Enderby  ButterWrapper  Parchment  The Dominion law against the selling of  butter without the words "Dairy Butter" or  "Creamery Butter"���������������������������as thc 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 with his name and  thc.brand of the 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 the duty of every butter maker to comply with the law in this matter. Some butter  makers have only a cowr or two, 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 the 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 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  -qua n ti ties-a t-thc-ra te-of-50G-a4nindr^Uin-100^or=  50 lots. If you do not rcpuire butter wraps in  larger lots, take these wraps in lesser quantities.  This is thc title of a book recently published by  Ilodder & Stoughton Limited. Toronto, from the  pen of Sir Max" Aitkin, ollicial cyc-wilncss of the  Canadian Iroops in Flanders. "Tarn so conscious  of lhe imperfections of lhe chapters which follow that I was for long unwilling to publish them  in the form of a book. They were written under  greal dillicullies and in many moods; nor am I  unaware lhal the excuse for collecting them is  very slender." Thus writes the author in his fore-  note. "It was, however, represented lo mc by  persons in authority," he continues, "thai the  subjects dealt with excited an interest so lively in  Canada that imperfections in thc workmanship  would bc readily overlooked in thc Dominion. I  therefore publish my impressions of thc fortunes  of thc 1st CanadianDivision and of Princess Patricia's Regiment. Some of the scenes described  fell in whole, or in pari, under my own observation. In dealtng with others I have had access, in  the discharge of my duties, to a large number of  military diaries and ollicial documents."  These words of the author will give an accurate idea of the character of thc book. Sir Max  Aitkin has written some splendid accounts of thc  work of thc First Canadian Contingent. Thc book  just published is the first permanent record of  the gallant fighting of lhe Canadian boys, put  up at a price which makes il available to all.
