After thawing three service pipes  last Thursday, thc thawing machine recently purchased by the  city went out of commission. It  was burned out owing lo the fact  lhal it was put into use before the  insulation had become seasoned.  The machine was laid aside, and  the one in use at Armslrong and  thoroughly seasoned was brought  to Enderby and is now finishing  the work of opening the water  pipes.

It is the intention of the management to pay the highest price for  butler fat in the Valley, and it is  promised that/while the ice cream  season is on at least, the price will  be over 35c.

Lack of Loyally  attack is being made, though it is  hinted lhat it may be looked for.  The renewal ofNthc Italian offensive was undoubtedly due lo a desire to keep Austro-IIungary troops  which might have been employed  elsewhere, along the Italian border.

In conversation , fought  by both  sides.    The city's  Mr. Mowat referred to the serious- case i.s in the hands of the firm of  every professional man, would  attract business and aid in centralizing interest here. For a  merchant to cease advertising  in the home paper as a matter  of economy, means not only a  loss to himself but to the community as a whole. Both the  merchant and the community  loses more in the process than  is lost to the home paper. It requires no argument to convince  any sane individual of this fact.  The pulling power of a single  merchant's advertisement in  home paper may not be great���������������������������  cannot be great enough to hold  business in the town. But the  pulling power of all merchants'  advertisements is immense. It  requries co-operation in this as  well as co-operation in the selling of produce by our farmers.  A small advertisement by each  would aid all in the same measure as the no-advertising policy  has injured all.

THURSDAY, MARCH 23, 1016  When "Bruce" McConncll was squeezed out of  the Saturday Sunset by his political "friends,"  and lhat former excellent weekly lost the influence of his virile pen, a cloud came over the  fortunes of Saturday Sunset and thc men whose  finances were back ol* it. "Bruce"* was all there  was to Saturday Sunset. When he quit lhe Sunset quit, and Vancouver lost a weekly newspaper  ! lhal was a credit lo lhc Province. Thus (lo we  see lhe influence of politics when il becomes master of a man. And in lhe case al point, it was  "family politics" which brought aboul the ructions in the Sunset. Olher Liberals wished to  lead "Bruce"���������������������������lo drive him���������������������������and he, a good  Liberal himself, would neither be led nor driven.  Recently "Bruce" McConncll cslablishcd another newspaper in Vancouver, which hc calls  "J. P.'s Weekly." In it "Bruce" is doing some  of his best work. His pen has gol hack much of  ils old-lime virility. And, what i.s the best thing  about it, "Bruce" is apparently non-partizan, and  intends lo keep himself free from petty party entanglements. By so doing "Bruce" will be a  power for good a I the coast.  In the last issue of his paper "Bruce" hi Is lhc  nail on lhe head thus, in discussing the attempted  "sensation"   which   lhe  Liberals sprang  on   lhc  Province last week in trying to upset the business  of the country on a technicality, by which Ihcy  hoped  to  force prorogation of  lhe local  house  before the business could be pul through, and before Ihey could carry out the "investigation" they  have called so  loudly  for, and  which  Premier  Bowser seems delcrminc'd to force Ihem lo make.  "Amid   the   clamor,   mostly   parlizan,"   says  Bruce, "lhat has been raised over lhe situation in  Victoria, only one consideration will appeal to thc  average man who docs not sweeten his porridge  wiih politics in the morning and mix his "nightcap" wilh more of lhc same condiment at night,  and llkil consideration is the public business of  the Province,   Whether there has been a blunder  in regard lo the life of the legislature or not, thc  public inleresl of lhis Province demands that thc  legislature sil and  transact the business of the  Province.

While Lhe loss lo many orchard is Is in thc Okanagan will undoubtedly be severely fell, as a result of lhe winter freezing of certain varieties of  apples and other fruit trees, the ultimate result of  the severe weather will be advantageous lo all���������������������������  provided the lesson is learned. The fact lhal certain varieties of Irees were winter killed on the  low-lying lands, does not mean a blow lo fruit  growing in lhc Okanagan nor any particular section of the Okanagan. II does mean, however,  lhal lhe low-lying lands are not as suitable for  fruit growing as the uplands. This is no new i  discoverv. But in the face of olher vcars when'  certain varieties ol* trees were winter-killed, man  have insisted upon planting the less hardy varieties. Thai Ihey should be caught this year is un-  forlunale, bul it would have come sooner or later  anyhow, and, if Ihcy are prepared lo learn the  'lesson now. it will mean their gelling re-established on a safer basis lhal much sooner.

Nor .do we believe the mailer should be covered  up.   We ought to guard against other orchardists  being led inlo making the mistake again of giving  their land over to the varieties which were this  year winter-killed,   lt i.s most unfair lo lead men  into pulling Iheir money into varieties of fruit  which have proved lacking in hardiness lo stand  the rigors ol* lhe occasional severe winters which  the 'locality is subject lo.   The days of real estate  booming,  coupled  with   lhe deception   which   is  resorted lo, .seemingly as pari of the real estale  game, are, we hope, ended, so far as the Okanagan i.s concerned. If certain sections of lhe Valley  are heller adapted lo dairying lhan lo fruit growing, Ihen we should insist upon lhis facl and encourage specialization upon lhe lines best adapted  to our locality.   The sooner we do this lhe sooner  will we have more prosperity and less disappointment.   The truth about lhc Okanagan ought to  be good enough for anybody.

CO-OPERATION THE GREAT NEED  Thc Provincial department of Agricullurc has  started lhc publication of "The Agricultural  .Journal," a very neat periodical lhat should bc  most useful in bringing before the farmers of thc  Province tlie information compiled by the heads  of the various branches in that department. In  (he initial number, Mr. W. E, Scott, deputy minister of agriculture, says:   .  "Farmers, why are you not getting the price  for thc produce of your farm to which you are  justly en tilled? Thc answer is nol far lo seek.  Individualism is llie nightmare of farming. You  have no method in your marketing. One farmer  is selling against another, and by so doing, you  are giving a splendid opportunity, of which hc is  not slow to lake advantage, to lhc man who buys  your produce. You now have to accept what is  offered you. Is it nol lime lhat you had a say  yourselves in the price of thc commodity you  have for sale?

A large number of samples of German toys such as were formerly imported inlo  Canada will be. on exhibition lo show Canadian  manufacturers whal lhe Germans supplied, and  lhere will be a collection of American toys to  show whal our neighbors in lhe United Stales  have been doing to replace German toys.  There has been a surprising development of toy  manufacturing in Canada since the outbreak of  the war and there are known to bc not less than  twenty-four toy manufacturers in Canada at the  present time. There may be others. Most of  those now manufacturing toys in Canada arc  making Ihem as a side line, using waste-material,  bul there arc a few concerns that are devoting  their entire attention lo lhc.manufacture of toys.  ButterWrapper  Parchment  The Dominion law against thc selling of  butter without thc words "Dairy Butter" or  "Creamery Butter"���������������������������as,the case may be���������������������������printed  on thc butter wrap, is a blessing in disguise to the  average farmer. . In thc first place, if his Butter  wrappers are neatly printed wilh his name and  thc brand of the butter on lhc label, lhe storc-'  kecpers can readily sell thc butter at 5c a pound  more than he can get for buller wrapped in paper  lhat is not printed, and the butler-maker gels the  advantage in 5c a pound more for his butler from  the merchant.  11 is the duty of every butter maker to comply wiih the law in this mailer. Some butter  makers have only a cow or two, and make so little  butler that it does not appear to them that ihey  can afford to have their butler wraps prinlcd.  They do not like the idea of having 500 or 1000  butter wraps on hand. To accommodate this  class of buller makers, The Press has prinlcd up  a quantity of "Custom" Butter Wraps. They are  printed with thc words "Fresh Dairy Butler" but  do not bear the name of thc maker. However,  these wrappers fill the requirements of thc law  -governing-this-point^aiKLcan^beJmughLin.small,  quantities at thc rate of 50c a hundred in 100 or  50 lots.

Wc hear on every hand that the first duty of tlie  British Empire as well as of Canada is to win  this war, and everybody is agreed on that. But  it depends on what we mean by tlie word "win."  Al lhe outbreak of hostilities one of Britain's  foremost statesmen told us thai the "silver bullet" would decide thc victory. By tliat hc meant  money, resources and credit (of course in addition to men.) The Hon. Sir Thomas While, minister'of finance, said recently that Canada's  credit was saved last year by her enormous output of agricullural products. Nineteen fifteen  was a record year in thc Dominion for crop production.  Now what about our credit one year hence���������������������������  and who is going to save it then? Except under  lhe most extraordinary conditions of weather in  the coining season it will be out of all possibility  for the farmers of Canada to produce anything  like they did lasl year for Iwo reasons, viz.:  scarcity of labor and thc fact that compared with  olher ycars only a small percentage of land in  thc West has been summer fallowed and little fall  plowing has been done out there  FRUIT SHIPMENTS FOR 1915  Recruiting has been carried on very energetically throughout all our provinces and in some  localities a systematic canvass is being made in-  . eluding thc rural districts looking for recruits.  Regardless of all. else our Empire must have food  and so must our allies. Our enthusiastic cam-,  paigncrs should not forget lhal and they should  also remember lhal Canada is the largest food  producing colony of Britain, and, further, thai  such countries as France, Belgium, Italy and Serbia, whose fields have been devastated by the German spoilers, depend on us to save them from  starvation.  It is one thing to wave our hands and exclaim,  "Every physically fit man should bc in khaki,"  it's another thing when you as these "patriots"  will have to produce the food. The production of  Canada's crops must not bc left in thc hands of  physically until men and women. Aldeast one  good man must bc left on every 100 acres of land,  and it is going bcyoiid the bounds of patriotism'  to ask a young farmer to enlist unless hc has  brothers to take his place. It is the duty of such  a farmer to stay right at home, and any recruiting ollicer who throws slurs at such a man's  ��������������������������� bravery or .even persists in signing him up is not  . .doing his counlry any good, to put it mildly. The  recruiting sergeant who goes up and down our  concessions should bear these things in mind  and not call a man yellow as sonjc city men, who  are'on this work', have\lone.    ; ~"  On thc other hand, every available man, farmer's son or not, who can join thc army without  materially lessening production of food should  ��������������������������� .enlist, and there arc a few of this class in the  counlry, in the case of where one man has several  sons. Farm boys who stay, at home al this, time  in thc face of all epithets hurled at Ihctn need  have no cause lo feel ashamed, and have every  reason to look any man (in khaki or otherwise)  straight in thc face.���������������������������Agricola.  During the season of 1915, the Okanagan United Growers, which is the central organization  lhat markets the produce of the nine fruit unions  stretching from Salmon Arm to Penticton, did a  volume of business reaching the splendid total  of $802,186. Of this, thc sale of fruit, vegetables,  etc., amounted to $654,682, while thc sale of supplies came lo $M7,503. There were shipped by  lhc organization 1536 cars of fruit and farm produce during the year as compared wilh 954 cars  in 1913 and 1138 cars in 1914. Thc cash returns  for 1915 on Ihesc shipments were $245,465 in excess of the previous year.  These facts were brought oul al thc third annual meeting of the Okanagan United Growers,  which convened at Vernon on thc 15th. The  Vernon News says that in great contrast to thc  meeting of last year, there was no evidence of a  jarring note at this session. Harmony and satisfaction were much in evidence and a healthy  spirit bf optimism concerning the future seemed  lo prevail at the meeting. It was clearly evident  lhat the services of Manager Jackson were  greatly appreciated, and President Nicholson was  loudly   applauded   when   he   expressed   warm  Give Your Home Printer a  Chance at Your���������������������������  HAS THE TURNING POINT COME?  "Wc have reached the decisive hour," said  Alexandre Ribot, minister of finance, speaking in  thc Chamber of Deputies of France a few nights  ago on lhc financial and military situation. "We  can say without exaggeration, without illusion  and without vain optimism, that wc now see the  end of this horrible war."  =s^M?=Ribot-s=-uttcrance=-i&-taken*to=bc-oiL'Utniost-  importancc, as indicating official opinion with regard to the result of thc battle of Verdun.  Whether peace is or is not appreciably nearer it  is unquestionable that the tension in France has  relaxed and that men's thoughts-are. turned to the  rapid developments of events favorable to the  Allies. Just Vhat these events arc to be we are  not permitted to know, but it "may be safely put  xloxvniiasiccri^  been victorious at Verdun, there will soon bc the  opening of lhe big drive on the Western front by  thc British and French. War reports of the past  few days have been more than usually hazy, and  it is next to impossible to know just what gains  lhe enemy made at Verdun, or if these gains can  have any material bearing on the general situation in.the West. It will bc interesting to learn  lhe full meaning of M. Ribot's words. In thc  meantime we may accept them for their full  value. So unqualified a statement would hardly  be made if it were not intended to bc so taken.  words of praise regarding the efficient and satisfactory manner in which thc manager, supported  by a loyal office staff, had carried on thc business  of tlie year.  It was pointed out by the directors at the meeting' lhat while thc orchard pack crate had been  subject to abuse lhc past season, it was the intention of Central to continue this pack for 1916, under conditions which would largely do away with  thc possibility of a repetition of last season's  abuses.   Manager Jackson reported as follows:  "The Central management is working out  plans which will provide in operations for 1916:  1���������������������������More genuine co-operation between locals  and Central in picking, grading, packing and  handling their tonnage in order that wc may obtain a more uniform and a higher standard of  grades.  2���������������������������More care in assembling, scientific loading  and better service in transit.  3���������������������������Wider distribution of all our products.  4���������������������������Wiser   distribution,   specializing on   lines  which 1915 results appear unfavorable to Central  5���������������������������Gradual extension of our selling organization wherc such extension will mean reduction in  overhead charges and superior service.  . 6���������������������������Special plans for strengthening, locals,who  arc handicapped by keen local competition.  7���������������������������Efficiency and "economy.  "Wc arc hopeful of making our, tonnage equal  2,000 cars and our total sales pass lhc million  mark, and, further to reduce our cost of doing a  dollar's worth of business to less than nine cents.  "Your president, executive and central board  of directors have assisted  the manager wholehearted. Thc same measure of assistance and cooperation in 1916 will enable Central to show  better comparative results for 1916 operations  than was accomplished in the year 1915."

There is stated to be a strong probability  of practically all the overseas batalions now at  full strength and the proposed regiment for  which authorization has already been granted,  being concentrated for training in thc Okanagan  during the summer. The 67th Western Scots of  Victoria, are not, of course, included in this category, as that unit has received its marching orders. In the event of all the Iroops being concentrated at the Vernon camp there will be nearly  15,000 men under canvass there. No transfer  will be effected before May 1, this being considered the earliest time for a start on summer  training under field conditions.

KEEP EVERLASTINGLY AT IT  Did thc thought ever occur to you what you  might have been in life? . Thc tiling that hurts is  that you never tried real hard.   Perhaps you were  a quitter.   Perhaps you whined about not getting  the chance and then laid it all lo fate.  No one reaches the acme of ambition, and yet:  "No star is ever lost wc once have seen,  Wc always may be what wc might have been."  Some people live on sneers.   Most individuals  run in herds.   They never understand the man of  pronounced individuality.   So let the mob howl.  Thank God you have a purpose in life and the  howling of thc pack is like music because it is thc  sign of success.    No real success comes in  a  hurry.   The fields arc full of slicks from burnt-  out sky-rockets. The man who was most brilliant  in school is very probably selling lace in a novelty  store while the 'stupid ass' who sal next lo him  is president of a munition factory or an ice trust.

The  Premier, in lhe forccfulness and  vigor of his remarks, and. in lhc  sustained power of his voice and  delivery,. ' demonstrated lhal the  stories of his failing physical  slrenglh were largely unfounded.  Willi logical arguments, backed by  figures, he conveyed Ihe impression that as/Premier he is not dying politically either,; although the  Liberal leaders in the legislature  suggested that it was* common  knowledge that he was.  The legislature on Monday unanimously agreed to the request  contained in the resolution submitted by Mr/ M. A.
