Inspector Anstey is visiting ihe Enderby school this week  in his ollicial capacity,- and the  school board deemed il .advisable  that they should lake advantage of  the opportunity to meet him and  gcLrsuch information ancl advice as  he might deem'advisable to give.  Inspector Anstey has a splendid  grasp of educational problems; and  is particularly interested ancl. interesting in,Enderby school problems. He took occasion on Tuesday evening to scl the' school board  right on several, matters which J'or  the past monlh or two have caused  them more or less trouble..      ���������������������������   -  In regard tohig'h school matters,  thc Inspector said, it was extremely  unfortunate that the" teacher, -Miss'  Smith, and.the pupils had nol gol  along better together,'" aiicl thai-.the J  school should* .have been -so set  back the ��������������������������� past .term, but, he "would  not,go/into thcV.nierits' of' lhc: case  one way or\llic,other,,saying^thai  was .'useless*"to"  Municipal  Magistrate  Sundry  Poor  relief   ..

"It is exceedingly satisfactory to  find lhat we are in a postilion lo  continue thc regime of economv  which was inaugurated last year,  and thai without undue curtailment  in anv direction. There i.s no doubt  that lhe unexpected success of the  committee in collection of tax arrears lasl vear, whereby lhc holding of a tax sale was rendered un-  necessarv, was to a large extent  due to lhc lightness of Ihe current  lew; and under the improved general conditions now prevailing we  confidently anticipate from the  pursuance of lhc same policy during the present year an even  -greater measure of success."  Some discussion arose as to the  salarv to be paid the health officer  and citv clerk. II was decided lo  adopt the estimates wilh lhe exception of the clause relating lo the  health department, the chairman  of the committee being requested  to interview Dr. Keith and learn  from him what amount would be  satisfactory. In thc mailer or the  cilv clerk's salary, Mr. * Rosoman  slated to the council lhal last year  a 25 per cent, reduction was made  in his salary, while the general reduction in school teachers' salaries  was only 10 per cent. Therefore  he maintained that the reduction  submitted to'by him last year was  equal lo a Iwo-and-a-half-year reduction at 10 per cent., and in view  of this hc must insist upon the return of his salary to the original  amouni.  experience   with   and   preparation  of the scholars .leading up to the  entrance class'.   But he thought the .  class was quite up to the,mark, and  said he had every reason" to believe  lhat Mr. Hughes would'succecd far.*  belter next term than this.    What  was needed, in his opinion, was a   ���������������������������  greater amount of study by the pupils themselves and less help by the  teacher.(. Hc thought, perhaps,-Mr.*   ,  Hughes   had "been   too   easy- with  them and had done.much work-for- "���������������������������  them  that  ihey  should have done  themselves. - .   . -  In regard to the "other rooms, Inspector  Anstey  said   the- children:  under Miss Carlson wcre-doihg ex-.

He urged lhe procuring  of visitors registers for each room  in thc school. Many complaints,  he said, would never be heard ;f  parents of school children would  take lhc time lo visit the school and  get in clser touch wilh lhe teachers  and the work they were doing. Me  said he had heard some fear expressed to lhe effect lhal thc 1910  entrance class scholars would nol  show the progress exhibited in the  pasl few years. He thought such a  fear wasVntirely groundless. On  his visit to the class and in his examination of the scholars he found  them fullv up in the work and hc  could see no reason why the en-  lranee class this year should prove  less successful lhan on previous occasions.

It seems to  us lhat lhat is just where General Funsbn desires  they should be. By the drive after Villa the  American military forces have been able to penetrate far inlo Mexico without losing a man and  without arousing thc suspicions ol" the Mexicans.  They have secured a foothold, on lines of communication which would have cost them thousands of lives if Ihey had had lo light their way  thither. And what is boiler, they have put themselves between lhe Mexican Iroops and their  source of supply. They have broken up and  scattered lhe Villa Iroops, and have Carranza's  Troops between them and lhe American border.  Since Carranza can gel his munitions of war onl>'  from American munition works, and, since the  mission of the American Iroops in Mexico is lo  bring peace oul of chaos, it would seem lhal the  American military ollicers have achieved a wonderful hit of strategy. 11 is not possible* nor  probable lhal the Mexican government will relish  the position, hut lhal docs not tiller lhe ease. The  American military ollicers can repeal whal they  fold them two or three years ago when the  marines landed al Vera Cruz: "Wc are here not  to do you injury in any way; every man, woman  and child, and every piece of properly is safe:  but don'l vou attempt to hurt one of us." And  llie Mexican is a pretty good listener when you  hold a gun lo his head.  While lhe press bureau is busy wills its campaign of calumny against thc Germans and they  against us, il would* bc as well to remember lhat  hale, wrath and vengeance arc forms of fear, that  is, forms of death.  NEED OF PRODUCTION  It must he plain lo thc mosl obtuse and unreasoning mind that twenly-four or twenty-five  millions of men cannot bc withdrawn even from  the swarming population of P2uropc without effecting a huge reduction in the produce of labor  and of lhc soil. Women may in a measure supply lhe places of men,.hut il must be remembered  Lhal women have also Iheir sphere in the economics of life. Therefore in taking them lo lhe  land Ihey arc being taken, in lhe main, from  other employment. Consequently, if for every  man who goes lo fight lhere was a woman lo lake  his place in agriculture or olher industry there  would slill he a deficiency nol only in labor but in  production. At ihe present time 400,000 women  are being called for to lake lhc place of 250,000  British soldiers recruited.from farm work.  Hence it is clear that no matter what steps may  be taken, either during thc war or aflcr the war,  there musl be an enormous shortage of the requirements across thc Atlantic for many years lo  come.   And lhal shortage for a period subsequent  to the declaration of peace will be as keenly felt  as al anv time during lhe gigantic struggle. Wilh  the normal scramble for existence resumed there  will bc less immediate government control���������������������������in  other words, there will be less systematic regulation of supplies.   To meet the huge demands lhal  must succeed extra consumption,  tremendously  less production and immensely greater wastage,  there will bc abundant use, nol for one. year's  bountiful crops, but for similar blessings during  a score of successive years.   Wherc and how can  this assured demand be met?    There is bul one  Soon the City of Euderby will be placing al flu-  disposal of the Hospital Board of Management  lhe building taken over by lhe city from Mr. S.  Poison to be used for hospital purposes.   It seems  lo us that, in view of past experience, now is lhe  lime lo place the hospital on a permanent basis  by starting il oil' riglit.    Al least no harm can  come from discussing lhe proposition.    And we  would  mildlv  suggest  that   llie  cilv council  go  into the matter with the hospital board and between Ihem endeavor to induce Dr. Keith lo lake  over the hospital. In making lhis suggestion The  Press desires lo acknowledge thc splendid work  done by Miss Davics. as matron of lhe hospital.  There can be no difference of opinion in tin's  regard. And Ihe same should be said of lhe  work by the ladies of the hospital auxiliary.

In the first place, if his Buller  wrappers arc neatly printed with his name and  thc brand of the butter on lhc label, lhc storekeepers can readily sell thc butter al 5c a pound  more than hc can get for butler wrapped in paper  that is not prinlcd, and the butler-maker gels the  advantage in oc a pound more for his butter from,  the merchant.  It is the duty of every butter maker lo comply wilh the law in this matter. Some buller  makers have only a cow 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 thc idea of having 500 or 1000  butler wraps on hand. To accommodate this  class of but'er makers. The Press has printed up  a quantity of "Custom" Butler Wraps. They arc  prinlcd wilh the words "Fresh Dairy Butter" but .  do not bear thc name of the maker.
