And so,  when there came a package by parcel post the olher day addressed to  "Walker, printer to his Satanic  Majesty, Enderby on the Styx,"  and marked for custom's designation "1 Special Tuminy-lcaser," the  printer and devil of'Enderby's leading excitement naturally looked for  something to happen when ' the  package was opened.

A few weeks ago thc  Enderby Board of School Trustees received a petition signed by a fc>y parents sending children to  thc public school,* asking the board lo request  thc resignation of Mr. Hughes as principal ol* thc,  school. No specific charges were laid against the  principal, nor did lhc school board ask lor any.  Neither did the school board seek to investigate  any complaints lhal may have been laid. 11 was  said by some of lhc parents that their children  were not making satisfactory progress under Mr.  Hughes, and one signer of the petition said thai  al least lour children Avould be kept at home by  the; parents!I'TVlrVHIfghcs" \vas retllinelYsiitspiItrdl"  llie  compulsory school  law  in  force.  Wilhoul  opinion, was a greater amount of study.by lhe  pupils themselves and less help by lhc teacher. Hc  thought, perhaps, Mr. Hughes had been loo easy  with   them  and" had*done much  work  for thc  pupils which Ihcy would have been better oil' had  Ihcy   done' for   themselves."    Concluding   this  pari of his 'report to the school board, Inspector  Anslcy made these pungent observations: "Do not  listen to compliants too closely; go to the teachers  and investigate for yourselves; take thc teachers  into your confidence; back them up;'give them a  chance; show them lhal you want to help them  to bc efficient in their work."  "^TlTC^c^'CiiVaT'ks^aTc^lo^thc^paitilr^iKHn^lhis5  connection il might be well to look back over thc  giving the principal a bearing his resignation was past.

Bul now lhc school board is up against the name of lhc school. Thc principals and high  anolhcr horn of thc dilemma. Another petition, school .teachers who have been obliged to leave  signed by two or three tinies as many citizens ancl Enderby school have gone from here to belter po-  parcnls of school children as were on lhc first has  been presented lo the school board objecting to  lhe summary way in -which lhe case was dealt  wilh ancl asking lhat charges bc laid and publicly  investigated before a change is made in lhe  teacher staff. Whclhci; lhe school board will  comply with this request ol* the petitioners is yet  to be seen,    lt is doubtful if Principal'Hughes  CITY. COUNCIL SESSION  Al a special meeting of thc Cily  Council Monday evening an amending by-law was put through its first  reading,   providing -for  thc  better  handling of the waler supply of ihe  city, collections, etc.    The by-law  as finally passed will be printed in  full.   Al the present lime il is only  necessary^to mention the important  changes proposed. In the first place '-  il is proposed to do away with the  10 per cent interest charge which is  now added if the water- rate is not  paid at a certain lime. 'This clause  has hacLa tendency lo delay coIleeV  lions  rather  than   facilitate  them.*.  It is now proposed to.shut ofi*' the' >  waler  if  the  rate is -not  paid  oh  time.

II and lhe teachers of lhe dislricland cily schools  would bring all face lo face with each other, and arc all included in a teachers' association, which  out of the lahglc would come a better under- meets every week or two. In this way they keep  standing. It is tliis lack of understanding which in touch wilh the work of each olher, and..bc-  brings about so much wrangling in school ma I- come as one organization working foi  lers,' and is giving lhc Enderby school an unenviable name in educational circles.  We need more of the "back-bone" which characterized thc school board of a few years ago���������������������������  when Messrs. Fulton and Taylor were al ils head.  Early in April, this year, when School Inspector  Anstey was visiting the school, he met llie school  board and told lhe"members what he found here.  Regarding the compliant against Mr. Hughes, hc  said he thought they were entirely groundless.  True, he saicl; it could not be cxpcclcd lhal Mr.  Hughes would be able lo lake hold new lhis  year ancl bring thc scholars through as well as il  had been clone last year by Mr. Calder, with his  previous years' experience. But hc thought lhc  entrance class was quite up lo lhe mark, and said  he had every reason lo believe lhal Mr. Hughes  would make good, and urged thai he be continued anolhcr term.    Whal was needed, in his  come as one organization worumg ior me educational good, of thc children* of * llie town and dislrict. Thc teachers and school board work together to maintain harmony and avoid discord.  There is a systematic visiting of lhc schools by  lhc members of lhc school board and the parents,  and il* any complaint is heard it is immediately  investigated by bringing the complainant and the  teacher complained of together before the board  and hearing each side of llie case. AI Pcnliclon  a similar practice is followed.

THURSDAY,   JUNE 15,  1916  THE EMPIRE'S GREAT LOSS  When   the news of  lhc  tragic death of Earl  Kitchener ancl staff was Hashed throughout thc  Empire, Lhe shock left consternation in its wake.  Bul after the shock, there has come a greater determination to see the war through.    Kitchener  was lhc one man in whom lhc Empire ancl lhe  army had absolute conliclcncc. He was another  Cromwell in his tenacity to service and his determination  to carry out  his military projects,  but, unlike Cromwell, hc had the people of the  Empire, back of him as well as the army.   Cromwell in his clay was execrated as a regicide, but  lalcr was revered as a hero and saint.   He defied  parliament and  ruthlessly brushed aside all interference.    Kitchener, while defying the recalcitrant members of parliament, held at all limes  lhe unbounded confidence of lhc King, thc people  and lhe army, and when death came lo him he  was a I   the zenith  of  his service  to King and  counlry and was the popular hero of the Empire.  Another good man will succeed him as commander in chief of the war ollice, but none will be  found lo lake his place.   As there was only one  Cromwell so will bc found but one Kitchener.  The Evening Standard, of London, makes lhe  slalemenl that a basis of agreement has been arrived at for settlement of the Irish question, and  lhal an Irish parliament will bc set up at once,  Ulster being excluded. This would indicate lhal  lhe recent Irish rebellion brought quick results,  and lhat Ireland is al last to bc given lhat which  the Irish people have been fighling for lhc p'-isl  century. It is in line wilh lhe recent ullcrances  of Premier Asquith in lhe House of Commons  telling lhal it had been decided by the Imperial  Government lo abolish lhc ollice of viceroy of  Ireland, for some lime to conic al any rale, ancl  most probably forever.  , This has been lhc demand of Ireland for generations. The.'-question of home rule, while considered vitally important in Ireland, has been  used as a football in England lo bc kicked about  by lhc various political parties for political purposes when no olher question could be brought  oul to divide and befuddle the parly followers.  When lhc recent rebellion was quelled, a royal  commission was appointed to enquire into the  cause of lhe rebellion. Inspile of thc fact lhal  only a year or two ago Ireland was allowed lo  arm its* men and drill them lo fight for ancl  against home rule, official England, seemingly  did nol know, or did nol want to know, there was  any dissatisfaction in the Emerald isle. II did not  lake long, however, for lhe royal commission,  presided over by Lord Hardingc, lo discover lhe  seal of the trouble. II is nol now, and never was,  Ireland's desire lo break away from the Motherland. The popularity of thc reigning family in  Ireland has been surprisingly greal during thc  pasl hundred years* or so, when one reflects lhal  the people have been throughout this time in an  almost continuous stale of latent or open conllict  with thc Brilish Government. Whatever bitterness there has been in Erin in connection with  British rule, was directed against thc government  rather than against the throne. King George and  Queen Mary, both prior and subsequent to their  accession to the throne, King Edward ancl Queen  Alexander and Queen ..Victoria have always been  welcomed with the most unbounded cordiality  ancl enthusiasm whenever they visited Ireland,  ancl throughout lhc ycars that thc Duke of Con-  naught, now Governor General of Canada, spent  al Dublin as commander in chief of thc military  forces, neither he nor his family ever received an  unfriendly word or an unfriendly look���������������������������nothing,  indeed, bul,kindness from lhc Irish people.  The viccroyalty of Ireland is a very ancient  ollice, dating from lhc reign of Henry II. Unfortunately il is identified in thc eyes of thc Irish  people with whal one writer designates as English "mucldlchcadcd officialdom, despotism, ancl  oppression, for the lasl 700 ycars. Castle rule  stands for everything lhat is bad in lhe eyes ol"  the Irish people." This discovery, made at this  laic dale by thc royal commission, is lhc first  step in lhc reconciliation of Ireland. The appointment of Lloyd George lo bring aboul a satisfactory settlement of thc Irish question, means  an end lo lhis slate of things.

The day was ideal for the purpose, and each and  all entered inlo the festivities in lhe picnic spirit,  lion. Price Ellison was one of the few old-timers  present on lhis occasion. He remembered well  the first farmers' picnic held at the same grove  some ')"> years ago. In lhe years lhal are gone he  has gathered each year wilh his friends ol" Ihe  early days. He has outlived mosl of lhe men  who were al the first picnic. The program of  sports consisted of fool races for the boys and  girls, baseball games and horse races.  The prosecution began in Dublin lhis week of  Capt. Bowcn-Collhurst, charged wilh the shooting of F. Shechy Skclhinglon, editor of the.Irish  Citizen; Thomas Dixon ancl Fred Mclntyrc, during the recent Irish rebellion. "The defendant is  accused of murder. Thc prosecuting officer said  Capt. Bowen-Colthursl took the. three men from  thc guardroom with the remark: "f am going to  HshooVthcm,_asJ������������������thinl_aLlh__n������������������l^  The guardroom orderly made a report regarding  this io the adjutant-general, who sent a message  to Capt. Bowen-Colthursl, but il is nol known  whether il reached him. Al all evVuls, lhe men  were laken lo the yard and shot by a firing squad  of seven men. Ollicers testified lhal Ihey had  been on duly 72 hours at this lime, and lhat Capt.  Bowen-Collhursl was extremely excifal and did  nol acl in his usual manner. One ollicer said lhat  after the slmoling he m)lice(l vriV'OvenTent jii  Skelliinglon's body ancl told lhe captain of il, lhe  latter Ihen ordering lhat lhe squad shoot again.  Anolhcr volley was fired inlo the body. II was  testified lhal "Capt. Bowen-Colthursl told Major  Boxburg, who was in command al the Porlobello  barracks, lhal he bad shot lhe ..men on his own  responsibility and probably would bang for it.  The del'enscMs lhal the accused ollicer was mentally unstable.  A"l the conclusion of the court marlial trial of  Capl. Bowen-Collhursl, the court found him  guillv as charged. The court also pronounced  ihe accused captain insane, ancl, following the  usual procedure in such cases, he will probably  be ordered conlined during lhe King's pleasure.  THE POWER OF THOUGHT  Thinking leads men lo knowledge. Hc may sec  and hear, and read and learn whatever he pleases,  and as much as he pleases; he will never know  anything ol" il, except lhal which he has thought  over, lhal which by thinking he has made ihe  property of his own' mind.

It is estimated that Canada and Cuba, during  lhc last twenty years, received from lhc United  States about  three-fourths of all  lhc eggs exported by that country during that period.   This  situation, however, has now changed.   As against  an importation in 1913 of 13,240,111 dozen, wc  imported in 1915 not more than 3,783,952 dozen.  On the other hand, while in 1913 wc exported  only 147,149 dozen, in 1915 we exported 7,898,322  dozen.   This constitutes a net gain in production  in two ycars, of at least 17,100,000 dozen.   Practically all of these exports went to the United  Kingdom.        Notwithstanding   the   surplus    in  Canada which Ihesc figures indicate, prices during March, April and May have remained al an  extraordinarily high level.   For thc first quarter  of lhc year 1916 the price to producers, selling  co-operatively, has been at least 4c in advance of  the price received for lhe same "period in 1915.  For thc month of March, it was at least 5c in advance ancl for lhe monlh of April at least 3c in  advance of last year's price for these respective  months.    Thc demand for eggs for local consumption, for storage purposes and for immediate export, has rarely been so keen as a I the  present moment. t This situation is clearly reflected in the prices .just quoted.   Heavy domestic  consumption in the face of thc high price for  meats partly explains this condition.   Confidence  in the export demand, on lhc part of thc produce trade, confirms it from another direction.  Notwithstanding increased production,  thc egg  and poultry business  in  Canada  is in  a very  strong position at the present time.  Under these circumstances, we believe that it  will" be a' very wise practice to raise as many  chickens as it is possible or practicable.to.handle.  Early hatched chicks, make good winter layers.  Rough . grains . will probably be produced in  abundance-in, Canada this year aiid. thc feeding  of'"'poultry, at a profit should be materially, .'as-,  sistcd from this source. Eggs at.winter prices  are a paying proposition in any event. Poultry,  alive or dressed, under present and prospective  market conditions, can unquestionably be reared  and finished.at a decided profit. A good flock of  poultry, if carefully handled,;' will serve to prevent waste on the farm and promote economy  in living, such as is particularly necessary when  all farm products arc becoming so marketable  and so dear  =.<���������������������������_  o  Livery, Feed & Sale Stables  ENDERBY, B.
