There is-no other way ih  which money can be "raised" for the  Red Cross work, wilh so little effort  and expense to everyone, and surely,  there arc enough patriotic women  in Enderby to keep this good work  going, especially at this time when  the needs.of the Red CrossAvill.be  a hundred fold what they have been  in the'past.

Allies Making Headway in Great Offensive in France  James Norman Hall's "Kitchener's"  Mob," published by the Houghton-  Mifilin company, is one of the best  Looks that have come out of the  war.. Its intensely human touches  of, characterization, from thc pen of  an American writer who fought  with thc first expeditionary force  sent to Flanders by the late Earl  Kitchener, has brought out in bold  relief the humor-loving but reticent, restraincdly emotional English Tommy as few books have. A  passage or two will be sullicienl to  demonstrate, and they give an insight into the real conditions of  modern trench warfare:  "For three months and more wc  were face to face with an enemy  whom wc rarely saw. It was a  weird experience. Rifles cracked,  bullets zip-zipped along the lop-of  the parapet, greal shells whistled  over our heads or tore immense  holes in thc trenches, trench mortar projectiles and hand grenades  were hurled at us,; and yet there  was not a living soul to be seen  across the narrow strip of No Man's  Land whence1 all this murderous  rain of steel and lead was coming.  Daily we kept careful and continuous ' watch, searching the long,  curving line of German trenches  and the ground behind them .with  our. periscopes, ancl field glasses,  and nearly, always with the same  barren result. We saw only thc thin  wreaths of smoke rising, morning  and evening, from trench fires; the  shattered trees, the forlorn and  silent ruins, the long grass waving  in the wind.  "Although we were often within  200 yards of thousands of German  soldiers, rarely farther than 400  yards away, I did not see one of  them until we had been in the trenches for more lhan six weeks, and  then only for the interval of a second or two. My German was building up a piece bf damaged parapet.  *[���������������������������wa tcl*red-the*n;a r llr=bei n gMh ro wn-f  over the top of the trench, when  suddenly a head appeared, only to  bc immediately withdrawn. One of  our snipers had evidently been  watching, too. A rille cracked and  I saw a cloud of dust arise where  the bullet clipped thc top of lhe  parapet. The German waved his  spade defiantly in the air and continued digging; but he remained  discretely under cover thereafter.  This marked an "epoch" in "my experience in ii war of unseon forces.  I had actually beheld a German, although Tommy insisted lhat it was  only' the old caretaker, 'lhe"bloke  wot keeps the Irenches tidy." This  mythical personage, a creature of  Tommy's own fancy, assumed a  very real -importance during the  summer when the attractions al thc  western -theatre of war were only  mildly interesting.'    *������������������������������������������������������*.'  Unless all indications fail, the  sort of warfare depicted in this  brief extract is at an end on the  western fronl. The great "Brilish  push" has taken its place. And today the reports from Flanders arc  the most promising since the war  began. The bailie of the Somme i.s  in full progress, and marks the  opening of lhe Franco-British offensive, long expected as a critical, if  not the decisive stage of the war.  If the Allies are successful in pushing back the German lines, and continue to keep lhe enemy on the  move, lhe end may not bc soon, but  the final outcome is certain. On the  other hand, if the Germans succeed  in laking Verdun, or can hold the  positions they already have won in  that direction, and at thc same  time can hold out against the  Allied offensive on other fronts by  shortening their lines, there is yet  the possibility of stalemate.  =-Earlj���������������������������reporls^show=lhaUJhe^Al--  lics are sweeping forward along a  25-milc front. The French already  have taken 5,000 prisoners cr more,  while the Allied lines have enveloped, nine villages ancl fifty square  miles of French territory held until  now by the Germans.   The theatre  of operations for thc Brilish forces and upon which lhe question rests,  ,runs between Gommecourt, north reads: "Thc failure of lax sale;; (in  of Ihe River A p. ere, to a point just > this Province) is causing thc cities  norlh of. tlie Somme, while thel to get deep inlo debt, ancl lo borrow  French attacked  on  both sides of I for temporary-periods-Ht-eNorbilant  out the,charge of .$1 to. cover-the.  expense of -turning water- off: and;,  on, herclofore'.adhered to:V **"  r Aid.'.

This-report was adopted.'-  A communication was* read from .  Mr.  N.  D.  McTavish, secretary  of -  the Kelowna Board of Trade, enclosing a copy of a resolution recently  passed  by that  board,  and *  iu'ging-=thaUiUbe^endQ_sed_Jj\i_.the__  Enderby   council,   petitioning   the  legislature   lo   pass   a   law   which  would enable thc municipalities of  thc Province to better handle the  problem, of collecting taxes hy the  system in vogue in Washington and  other slates.   Thc principal clause,  lhe Somme and southward toward  Roye. Thus the Er.lente Allies'  armies present a front of 25 miles,  with the Brilish on the left for 15  miles and lhe French on lhc right  for 10 miles. After an intense bombardment lasting, four days and  nights, the advance began. The  Allies' heavy artillery then, lengthened its range*so as to shut off all  communication between the first  German line and lhe rear. This  made il impossible for llie Germans  to utilize their perfect organization for thc shifting of troops and  for bringing up reinforcements. It  i.s believed by French military observers lhat the Germans miscalculated the intentions of the Entente  and expected the attack furrier to  the north.  In addition to the military successes, the terrain overrun by the  Entente Allies' troops, has an exceptional strategic importance. Four  of the towns captured arc only  seven miles west of Peronnc, the  chief rail highway from the German centre at Cologne to the German front in the region of Noyon  and Soissons. The German headquarters are at St. Quentin, 25 miles  southeast of Peronne. Already thc  French threaten Peronne, with the  evident intention of cutting lhc  trunk railway lhere, which is an indispensable artery for German  military reinforcements.  rales of interest; and whereas in  lhe slate of Washington and elsewhere in the United States there is  a system in force which gets over  thc'dilliculty hy making lhe interest  15 per cent instead'of'8 per cent,  and enables an intending tax purchaser lo go lo the city ollice any  day in the year and buy lots for  delinquent taxes instead of wailing  for a tax sale once a year." The  request was laid over until lhe next  meeting.  The mailer of the bill for SI), sent  in by Mr. O. Skjeie for work done  in-connection with thawing of water pipes on Baird lane, war, again  brought .up, and after discussion it  was decided to reconsider a former  decision of the council and pay the  bill.  His Worship the Mayor staled he  had received complaints of cows  and horses running at large within  the city, and in some instances of  damage lo gardens. The matter.'  was referred lo Constable Bailey,  who informed the council that he  found it dillicull to be in several  nlaces at once, and that while he  was attending to water troubles al  the intake hc could nol be allending  to his police duties in Enderby.  The clerk was empowered, to  granl a rebate on water rate in all  cases in which during the pasl  winter there had been failure of  waler service owing to freezing of  pipes on city streets.

THURSDAY, JULY 6, 1916  ALFALFA MEN AGAIN CAUGHT  Vancouver is blessed, or coursed, as you may  look upon it, wilh a city council of remarkable  sagacity and statesman-like qualifications. Also  with a sigment of the "Lord's Day Alliance."  Sunday h-TVancouver, has, up lo lhc present, been  a day of pleasant social intercourse, peaceful and  quiet enjoyment and harmless aud healthful pastime. Did the children crave peanuts or ice cream  cones, they could be obtained at the numerous  shops and'stands. Fruits and caramels to please  the palalc of old or young, papers or magazines,  and even cigars and tobaccos could bc purchased,  if desired. Band concerts were given in the public  parks and lhe human soul thus attuned to the  heavenly music of lhe spheres. Now all is to be  changed. The Fcdcrationist says, beginning with  the past Sunday, the day is to be dedicated to lhal  pictistic mockery, painful solemnity, ponderous  dullness, sombre and lugubrious joylcssncss, that  made lhc Sabbath of our puritanical ancestors  both a horror and a crime. No more peanuts and  ice cream cones; no more caramels and such  toothsome delicacies; no more smokes, no more  literature, even of thc moral and spiritual excellence of tlie local press, and no more music cither  sacred or profane, to bc allowed to be sold in the  highways and byways of that holy city. Great is  the wisdom ol" .the city council, and greater still  is the thoughtful and pious solicitude of the  Lord's Day "Alliance nose-pokers lor the.sinful  souls of peanut merchanls and similar vicious  persons. But one step farther ancl thc eating ol*  peanuts on the Sabbath will be prohibited, or  even feeding them to thc bears in Stanley Park.  The present city council of Vancouver and its  pious advisers arc intellectually capable of rising  to thc occasion and taking that step. And that is  about all thc recommendation that could, in decency, be given them. Thc less said about the  cranial content of the electorate that can stand  for such municipal wisdom, the better.  What wc talk about isn't war at all; it is only  the reports sent out hy the industrious war scribblers. We have it one day that thc line is broken,  and thc next day glaring headlines say it isn't.  Fights by sea and by land, wilh details that never  happened and made no difference, if they did, and  both sides claiming victories. War used to be  hell; now it is thc headlines.  No less than four radiating surfaces gather up almost  every scrap of heat and send it through your comfortable  rooms.

So  much-rain fell at the time it was fit to cut that  many of the owners allowed il to. stand too long.  When il was finally cut, much of'it was caught in  the fields and thc continued rains ruined much of  lhc early cut.   This year thc season opened better  for the "alfalfa men.    The first crop was not so  heavy as last year, thc stalk finer, and the weather  promised well.    Several of the larger producers  cut their entire crop, and it was caught down by  thc rains of the past week.   Needless to say, most  of the first cut will be badly damaged by the wet  weather.   This fact reminds us of what was said  by a lecturer sent by thc Provincial Department  oi* Agriculture to give the Provincial alfalfa men  some pointers on the curing of alfalfa.   This man  was from Oregon, thc wclcst state in thc Union.

FOREST FIRES GRAVE  The rains of lhe past week have been of great  assistance lo the forest rangers of lhe Province in  dealing with the grave fire condilions until recently" prevailing in many parts of the lumber  region. Ninety-five fires were reported from thc  Fori (leorge district. Large areas around the  Finlay Forks have been swept by fire, wilh damage lo timber and properly. Five million feel of  limber have been burnt at Stuart River, and a  smaller amount at Alesa Lake. In the Hczeltou  forest dislrict, several small fires are reported, the  southern division experiencing a dry spell, while  light showers have fallen in the central and western divisions. New vegetation is slow, and up to  thc lime of Ihe recent general rainfall thc crops  threatened to fail. In lhe Vernon dislrict thc hot  and dry conditions made fire risk very great, but,  fortunalely, owing lo the sharp lookout of thc  deputy forest rangers, none of thc many small  fires got away, and but lillle damage resulted.  *W-M*4������������������t^+$+t*>1>f****** f  < >  <���������������������������  <>  E.

Inspector Anstey Makes  Enquiry in School Matters  Inspector Anstey met the numbers of the Enderby board of school trustees last Thursday evening, and later met 35 oiy 40 parents of the school  children and rate payers, who gathered at the  Fortune school with the board and Principal  Hughes to hear the matter of the board's action  in dismissing the principal cleared up. Inspector  Anstey stated at the opening of the meeting that  a letter had been received by thc Educational Department at Victoria, signed by four, citizens of  Enderby, asking thc Department to investigate  thc circumstances connected with the summary  dismissal of Principal Hughes. He was glad, to  see so many. out. It was pleasing to note thc interest b_ing taken in educational affairs by' the  people. He hoped no other reason brought so  many out. He stated that under the school law  the board of school trustees has the power to engage, and dismiss a teacher, but the dismissal  must be for just cause. His duty in making this  enquiry was, first, to learn from the board, of  school trustees the reason for the action' taken.  This, he had already done. The dismissal was in  response to a petition signed by the, majority of  the parents of the children in Mr. Hughes' rooni.  He now' desired, to hear the charges brought by  the .parents against the teacher. He therefore  asked the petitioners to' state wherein the work  of Mr. Hughes was not satisfactory.  Only a third of the eighteen signers of the  petition were present. Mrs. E. A. Sparrow Avas  first to give evidence. She said her boy had not  made,any progress under Mr. Hughes. She had  asked thc principal to move the boy up a class but  he declined to do so. In reply to this complaint  Mr. Hughes said he found the boy was hot sufficiently advanced to be moved up.  Mr. E. R. Peel was next oh die list. He handed  in two or three closely-written pages of complaints about thc method employed by Mr.Hughes  in ' teaching. . These complaints covered, every  subject taught, by the principal. Considerable discussion followed the reading of these technical  complaints, Mr. Hughes holding that he had complied with the requirements of the school curriculum in all studies. Ih this connection, Inspector Anstey said it was difficult to base charges on  such complaints.' Followed to a logical conclusion, it would.mean that there was no need of\a  isvhcn the complaints came to them. Thc eom-  p'aints should have been heard, and not simply  take the petition as final and conclusive and ask  the man to get but. I think now I am in a position to make my report to the Department." In  summing up, the Inspector advised that when reports against any teacher arc heard from school  children, the wise policy is to bring the parents  complaining before the teacher and thus bring  about a better understanding., But, hc said, no  good can come from asking thc children about  the method of teaching. "Don't you think thc  trustees should have done so before acting, on thc  petition?"  Speakingt.for thc trustees, Mr. Faulkner said  the board acted on thc petition because it read  that thc parents of the children were not satisfied  with the..progress made by their children under  Mr., Hughes. This petition was signed by 18 parents out of.22. Five people came to him and said  if Mr.Hughes'was kept on they would not let their  children come to school. Various, questions were  asked the board about thc manner of getting the  petition before them; whether they had not decided some" time before the petition came in to  dismiss Mr. Hughes and appoint Miss Bcatty principal. These questions led to considerable acrimoniousV discussion,, ending nowhere. It did,  however, disclose thisjnuich: that before the petition was presented/individual complaints had  been made to the members of the board, and they  were told that in order to have them' acted upon  the ccmplaints would have to be made in writing.  Thc petition was the result.  ^-5ii  ENDERBY   LODGE  No. 35. K. of P.  Meets every Monday evening  in K. of P. Hall.   Visitors cordially invited to attend.  R. E. HARKINS, C. C.  G. W.

The tenth red'-,  son given by Mr. Peel for. signing the petition  "asking for Mf. Hughes' dismissal was because  he had neglected to tell the children the time ah  \vhich certain examination   subjects, .would be  taken up in the morning,'with the result:that one  or- more children arrived in the class room at 9  o'clock, 15 minutes after the subject had been  taken up.   In reply to this Mr. Hughes said he had  Written the time the session would convene upon  the blackboard thc day before,'and called the  attention of:tho pupils to it.. As.the examinations  were held three weeks or more subsequent to  the signing of the petition, this reason given for  signing it was not considered of any real weight.  Mr. J. H. Carefoot next told why he signed  the petition.   He said he had no fault to find with  the^lvaTOThlM^maTl^b^  Hughes' teaching.   He heard a lot of talk about  the teacher calling thc pupils bad names, ancl if  these- reports were true, he thought the parents  had a right to ask for thc dismissal of the teacher.  He'would like to hear those parents now tell what  Mr.  Hughes  had  called  their  children.    After  some hesitation Mr. Carefoot told what his child  said Mr. Hughes had called her one day.

PROHIBITION   ACT  DOES NOT PROHIBIT  Measure   Provides   for   Free  and Unrestricted Importation of Liquor from  Outside Points  The B. C. Prohibition Act,  on which the electors of British Columbia will bc asked  to register Iheir opinions at  the polls, is not a prohibition  acl in any sense of the term.  So contrary is it Lo the principles of-prohibition lhat Prohibitionists themselves ��������������������������� are  freely criticising thc measure  and lhc man who is neither  "wet" or "dry" is asking the  pointed question as to what  will- be secured by the bill  save llie building up of industry and trade at points outside the Province.  All of which goes to show  that it is advisable lhal thc  elector who desires lo vote intelligently on tbe subject  should carefully examine the  Act before election day.  Thc "wide open" clause of  thc Act, Clause 57, reads in  part as follows:  "Nothing in this Act shall  be construed to interfere  "(a) With the right of  any   person   to   import  form   without  the   Province liquor for bona fide  use in his private dwelling house."  This^lause means that any  resident of the Province is al-  I lowed to purchase all the  liquor hc desires, just as'  often as he wishes, without  any control or regulation by  thc Government, so long as  hc sends his money outside  the Province for his supply.  This clause would, for instance, allow any person to  place a standing order with  any liquor.-dcalcr. outside, lhc  Province for a weekly or  monthly shipment of whisky  lo be delivered to his dwelling. On such an order thc  supply of liquor would reach  him constantly, as'long as hc  met lhc bills. In lhc face of  such conditions, thc question  may well bc asked, "is this  prohibition?"  In thc preliminary campaign in connection with the  bill and at thc present time,  Prohibitionists have made a  grand stand play, both on thc  platform and through their  propaganda literature, of the  drunkard and the frightful  evils Avhich accompany drinking. Yet, in lhe bill for which  they themselves are admittedly entirely responsible  Ihey have done absolutely  nothing lo lessen the con-  _s limp Ho u_o.ll_l iquor. in .British.  Columbia, lhe sole effect of  the legislation being to send'  money spent for liquor outside the Province. Incidentally il may be mentioned thai  the drunkard, who already  has lhc tasle and the habit, is  the man mosl likely lo be lhc  first lo. take advantage of lhe  privilege Id l)uy~Dulside anrlr  should lhe Act pass, would  Ihereal'ler have liquor in  quantity in his home,whereas  he now lakes his liquor by the  glass. As the small hov would  say. "What's the use?"  The great question lying  behind the referendum vote  on the prohibition question is  whether the regulated sale of  liquor under Government license and control is not better  than the unregulated and  unrestricted importation of  liquor from outside points.

There is no spirit of  celebration in tlie hearts of the people, and cannot be, with so many  hundreds of our boys now engaged  in the great battle of empires, ancl  with war and visions of war standing forth on all sides. It was particularly noticeable in the crowd at  Armstrong. The field events were  the besf, and the games well played,  I'-.'ut game followed game, with as  little interest taken in them as  would have been taken in a game of  marbles.'  ��������������������������� There was music galore: By the  Armstrong band, the 121 si Battalion  band, the 172nd Battalion band,  and the 172nd bugle band. Two  lacrosse games and two games of  baseball were the riiain events.  These were interspersed with foot  races, jumping, physical drill by  teams from the different battalions,  followed by a tug-of-war between  teams from the four battalions represented there.  " The lacrosse and baseball games  were well played, but in none of  them was there any of the old-time  rivalry, either by thc rooters or the  players,, and few people were  suflicient'ly interested to ask which  was which of the teams or to learn  the score. The event" which, really  interested the crowd was the physical drill. Teams from thc 131st,  172nd and 121st went through their  regulation "physical jerks" .in a  ���������������������������manner .which, was truly remarkable, and showing marvelous and  instantaneous control of mind over  muscle. This feature was greeted  with round after round of applause  from the grand stand. ���������������������������>   -  A boxing contest in the evening,  a confetti carnival,and a grand ball  iri.,the opera house concluded the  day's entertainment.  WILL  FAVOR  CANADIAN FRUIT  f. That the economic adjustment ber  iween Great Britain and her colonies after, the war will to a certain  degr.ee work to the disadvantage of  the United States, is the opinion of  jsidor Jacobs, of San Francisco,  who has just returned from a visit  to England, where he went to investigate the conditions relative to  the British embargo on fruits, particularly as that restriction affects  the various phases of the fruit industry of thc Pacific coast.  "There i.s no doubt that the end  of the war will see a great change  in the relations between England  and her colonies," said Mr. Jacobs  to a representative of The Christian  Science Monitor, "as her policy is  bound to give to the colonics every  possible advantage in commerce  and trade in the way of preferential  tariffs and trade discriminations.  This will, of course, mean that the  .United Slates will lose to some ex-  atively between the bohunk and  the Chink, the Hedley Gazette,  whose editor has lived where the  bohunk invasion cast its killing in-  lluence over the community, says:.  Tuesday a Princeton Chink departed for the realms of the blest  by the hemp route It is supposed  he became despondent, over not being aide to compete in the labor  market with the bohunk. It costs a  Chink from 8 to 15 cents a day for  food; a hunk can live on a pound of  flour mixed with water and a half  ounce of, cheese grated into it, or  about 4 cents daily. The Chink  occasionally has pork or chicken,  which is an additional cost. The  hunk throws into the pot a gopher,  a chipmunk, a squirrel, a porky, a  beef hoof, a crow, a hawk, an owl,  or anything dead or living-that he  can pick up, steal, snare, trap, net  or shoot. There are sad days coming for thc Chink in B.C.  One Cause of Cancer  Dr.   James   Bryce   Howard;   lecturer on Pathology, once made the  statement to'������������������������������������������������������the effect that cancer  was caused by jealousy.   His argument   was    something   like   this:  Jealousy at once affects the circulation, and the emotion strikes at  the  organs   of   reproduction.    In  moments of   good-will,   when  the  mind .is  calm,   the   circulation   is  complete, strong, natural, the secretions are active, the pores open, the  glands do their perfect work.   Let  a  spasm  of  hate and  fear sweep  over  the   person,   and   the  heart  thumps  in  wild  alarm,   and  then  dies down until you can scarcely  detect its  throb.    The  skin grows  cold, the pores close, the secretions  cettse as though a sirocco of death  had swept over the body.   There is  congestion in the parts, then fever,  and Nature is working hard to restore an equilibrium.    That is just  the way cancer ��������������������������� grows���������������������������there is a  stoppage in the circulation, and Nature tries to clear it away by sending more blood to the part.    This  increased nutrition causes a growth  to. form,  and  Nature, who  works  accjiding to general laws, not caring i'oir the individual, kills thc patient in an effort to cure him.

Mc  does not seem to be of any particular nationality. When first he began  lo attract attention in British Columbia, he was at work in large  numbers in lhe coal mines in thc  Crow's Nest district. Later he  drifted into thc metalliferous mines  and is now pretty generally scattered about amidst the scenery of  Ihe Kootcnays. It is only a question of time when he will enlarge  his field of operations to the Okanagan. By comparison, thc Chink  is a spender of the LS-karat type  compared lo the bohunk. And thc  bohunk can give the Chink his  chop suey, fat pork, chicken and  rice, and still beat him out in the  amount of work he will do for a  given    price.
