' "Mrs. Lewis arrived from Seattle  last week, and Mr. Lewis has had  the Gardom cottage on tlie hill prepared for housekeeping, where they  now reside.  A general meeting of Conservatives of thc district will be held  in K. of P.

Excellent music was furnished by  the Mara orchestra, and the floor  was in fine condition.  Mr. John Burnham ancl daughter  came up froniythcir camp on Okanagan lake Monday, returning the  same dav. John says he hasn't seen  a nvsqiiito or a freight bill since  ���������������������������<oing south. "It's the only life."  Evcrv reel of the "Diamond from  thc Sky" picture play has been one  of sharp action realistically staged.  The films this week are of the usual  high standard, and lhcy gave an insight inlo anolhcr part of the-plot  opening up.  Mr. F. J. Gorle, of Deep Creek,  had the serious mishap last week of  being dragged at the end of rope  bv a mad cow, and sustained two  fractures of the leg. He was  brought to Enderby, ancl is now at  the.home of his son, under the care  of Dr. Keith.  A lawn social will bc held by the  Presbyterian Ladies' Aid at the residence of Mrs. Wm.

Mrs. Hezekiah Elliott was summoned to Kamloops Tuesday to thc  bedside of her husband, who was  lying at the point of death in the  hospital there afllicted with spinal  meningitis. Mr. Elliott left Enderby  Wednesday last intending to go to  the coast to.have an operation performed, but was only able to reach  Kamloops before laid low.  Want Recruits for Medical Corps  Capt. M. J. Vigncux, of the Army  Medical Corps, spent a few days  in Enderby this week looking for  Capt. Vigneux had one  experience in active service  in France. He says the medical  corps is cioing great wo'rk on thc  field, and the boys greatly enjoy tlie  work. In this corps thc trair.*:ig  is of-a different type from that of  thc "regular, ancl there is little or no  delay in getting to the front. Recruits are now needed, ancl anyone,  married or single, desiring'to join  is urged to write Army Medical  Corps headquarters,  Vernon.  ANOTHER ENDERBY BOY HAPPY  Pte. E. Rogers, writing from a  hospital.in England, says:  Dear Friends: I am now able to  send you a few lines, not thai I can  write myself yet, having been severely wounded in the right arm  ancl shoulder on May 14lh. I have  been in the hospital-ever since, bul  glad to say I am going on well, and,  best-of all, 'have still got my arm,'  and when I am fit and well, shall go  back ancl help the boys again. '  , "The first week in the hospital  was full of pain, and I was feeling  more or less forsaken, when a  nurse came along with a parcel for  me -from thc Enderby Tobacco  Fund, and, say, believe me, 1 was  tickled all topieces to think I was  not "'.'forgotten. You people simply,  cannot imagine the pleasure us fellows gel-out of the parcels you send  out:- My! but those cigs tasted good/  -and"i.t: y/as-r,ealrfun to .be. able* to  haridja smoke " round-to sortie of the  other wounded,boys.  .  I did not expect another parcel  after thc one I had at Christmas,  but no words of mine can tell you  how much I lhank you, one ancl all,  for your kindness to.me.  "The rest of the boys have been  in a stiff battle since I was knocked  out, but I hope they have all been  lucky enough ancl  pulled through.  They,   certainly tare   a   bunch   of  fighters, ancl pluck, say, each one of  them  deserves the V.C.;  for after  being through one of the fights, it|  shows up the stuff they are made  of.    Hope   Enderby   folks   are   all  well, ancl kindly give my  to all who should enquire  thanking you all." ,  regards  Again  DOING  HIS BIT  In  a letter to  Enderby  friends,  written from the 7th Canadian Sta-  tionary=Hospitalr-Le=Havrc,-FranGe,--  Chaplain C. Reed says, in part:  "My part in thc war has not been  an exciting one so far, but I think  that perhaps J may have been of  some use on occasion. As a rule,  when men are very sick they don't  want to be bothered by parsons or  anybody else, but when badly  wounded but clear-headed they do  often love to talk of things deep  clown in their hearts. Many men  have talked of doubts or difficulties,  but thc unfailing'source of comfort  and strength to them all has been  lhe Holy Communion. Working  among nien sick with phneuinonia,  pleurisy, typhoid and other diseases, or dying of blood poisoning,  smashed with shot and shell,  wrecked for life in many awful  ways, the one great thing lhat  strikes onc most is thc absence of  complaint or grumbling. They are  wonderful! To see a man wilh his  arm smashed in six places, yellow  and green with bruises, and suffering agonies of pain, and yet cheerful, smiling, joking, one can easily  excuse thc occasional sharp word  that seems to escape involuntarily  with an extra pang, or ii movement  bv nurse or surgeon. Why, in peace  time the ordinary man would make  twice thc fuss o^er a toothache.  "Another cheering thing is thc  air of absolute confidence in thc.  filial result that every man back  from the front is wearing today. I  can't tell you what they say, but  they say it very emphatically."  James Whitcomb Riley, "Hoosicr  Poet," died at his home in Indianapolis, last Saturday evening, from  a stroke of paralysis.   Joe's ice cream sodas will make  you forget your troubles.  AN EXPLANATION  The Press has been asked to give  room to thc following explanation  form the ladies having'in hand lhe  Woman's Suffrage propaganda being quietly carried on:  "We find many inquiries at our  headquarters, that a certain confusion exists in the minds of a large  number of, people in ihe Province  with respect lo the granting of the  franchise to women under the  "Woman's Suffrage Referendum  Act." The Provincial Woman's  Suffrage Referendum Association  is asking the press throughout the  Province to publish .the "Woman's  Suffrage Act," a copy of which is  enclosed, ancl under which it is  very clear that the vote will be extended to women.  "Clause 3 of this Act shows that  the Act shall come into force on the  first day of March, 1917, on proclamation of the lieutenant-governor  in council, pursuant to die "Prohibition ancl Woman's.Suffrage Ref  erendum Act."  Sub-section 3 of Section 11 of  this latter. Act reads::"(3) In case  it appears by the",certificate of-the  deputy- Provincial* secretary given  under subsection . (1) . that xthe  affirmative answer to the question  contained in' clause-.(b)* of-seclion  3 constitute a majority of the votes  cast on the said question, <thc lieutenant-governor in council .'shall  forthwith order.thcissuc^a nd-.publi-,  cation"* in the- Gazette-.-of the * proclamation .-under* section 3 of the  "Woman's SuffrageiAct," bringing  the said, Act into force throughout  the Province * on the first day of  March, 1917." . .      ���������������������������  s  In thc publication we would be  obliged if you would point-out that  at election time the following question will be submitted: "Arc you in  favor of the electoral franchise to  women?" If tiie" majority of the  people of thc Province answer yes,  then the vote will certainlv be extended to the women. Whether the  .Liberal or Conservative party i.s  put into power, the "Woman's Suffrage Act" being an Act of Parliament, will automatically come into  force on the first of March, 1917,  and all women will have their vote.  The only hitch possible would be  if the lieutenant-governor in council, commonly known as the cabinet, refused to carry out the man  -d  pol  h  d  CAPITAL  Spotted  Speers.  and   striped   Crapes   at  Numerous enquiries are received  by municipalities in thc west from  tlie money centres of the States  asking for municipal bonds. There  seems, indeed, to be capital without  limit seeking investments along certain lines, with very little, in thc  way of bonds, offering. It is not  strange that this should be so. Thc  American investor sees clearly the  immense possibilities offering in  British Columbia���������������������������perhaps more  clearly lhan do our own people,  and he docs not wait for somebody  else to get in and clean up the  cream. He wants to be first on thc  ground���������������������������and generally is.  Consul-General B. E. Mansfield,  representing the Uniled Slates in  Vancouver, recently submitted his  latest commerce report to his government, in which he dealt wilh  the commercial outlook in this Province. "Brilish Columbia entered  upon thc year 191(5 with a more  hopeful ancl satisfactory outloo  from a commercial, industrial and  financial point of view, than thai  presented at the beginning of 1915.  The deterrent elements are the  wrecks caused by speculation ancl  unwise expansion. How far these  will impede commercial progress  and industrial development it is  difficult* lo predict, but it i.s certain  that thc effect will he apparent for  several vears. However, the commercial machinery of the Province  is already beginning to free itself  from these obstructions. There is  a general tendency toward economy ancl retrenchment. Business  is al a low ebb, down to or even  below the needs of consumption,  and  must  naturally work upward  toward the normal, with extravagance and abuse of credit eliminated. Above all thc Province has  great .natural resources in timber,  metal, coal and fisheries, and its  abundant , available watcrpower  constitutes an important industrial  asset. When the financial and industrial depression has passed and  business assumes a more normal aspect, Briiish Columbia will offer an  attractive market for American  manufacturers. Depleted stojeks will  necessitate extensive buying, and  those who are prepared to take advantage of the situation will find in  this Province opportunities for  profitable business."-  PRICE ELLISON NOMINA TED  The Conservative convention at  Vernon, held Monday afternoon,  was well attended, and intense interest was taken by the delegates as  \well as by the crowd which filled  the old opera house. The afternoon  was devoted to hearing the candidates whose names were placed before the convention, and by the credentials committee" in scrutinizing  delegates' papers. Voting was postponed until the evening session,  when, on thc first- b'allot,; the vote  stood: Ellison, 5'4; Keary, 19; Kid-  ston, '13. .

SASK A TCHE WAN WANTS MEN  "We want 20,000 men for harvest  work  in  Saskatchewan, and I am  here to enquire how,many of these  can  bc supplied  from 'British'Co-1  lumbia," said Mr. F. H. Auld, acting  deputy miiiislcr of the Saskatchewan department of agriculture, lo a  representative   of   the - Vancouver  Province a clay or two ago.   "Outside   our   ordinary   requirements,"'  he continued, "we want 20,000 harvest workers  this year as-against  27,000 which was thc number we  brought into our province last year  for this work."  Asked aboul the probable rate of  wages which would be paid, he  said they would run from 835 to  ft'15 per.month with board, and that  during  ccl^by  r day  IN A FEW MONTHS  Addressing the House of Commons Monday afternoon, Mr.' David  Lloyd George, the successor of  Field Marshall Earl Kitchener as  head of thc War Office, said:   .  "Brilish resourcefulness and British intelligence are going to snatch  victory in a few months. The prospects are good. Our generals arc  more than satisfied wilh ancl proud  of thc valor of our men. Great as  our infantry' was iiv Wellington's  ancl Napoleon's day, it never was  greater lhan now. One thrills with  pride when one thinks one'belongst  to the same'race.

"Numbers and all other resources  are on our side.    There was onc  fear .that   years   of   training and  thought  on  the part of-the  great  military power might.be something"  insuperable.

Mr. Bedmond  will not accept Lloyd George's proposals as amended by Lord Lansdowne, ancl bis friends say he  would lose control of the Irish people if hc did, for the Nationalists  believe these alterations would exclude Ulster permanently from the  Home Rule parliament.

Not Pleased ivilh Reply  Washington, July 24.���������������������������Great Britain's reply to the American note  protesting against the interference  with neutral mails is regarded by  officials as unsatisfactory, principally because it deals wilh specific cases instead of'the principle  involved. Ollicials infer from the  communication lhat Great Britain  is determined to uphold her altitude which thc United Stales regards as unwarranted and without  authority in international law.

Commenting on lhis phase of the agricultural  question the writer says���������������������������and what he says is applicable as much to the farmers of thc Okanagan  as  lhe farmers of  the Northern and Southern  slates:  "On  the whole, I insist that the average southern  farmer can make SioOfVmore a year by belter farming  methods and s?f)()'0 more a year by better methods of  co-operation and marketing���������������������������and whal I want us to do  is to gel both *:">()() gains.    An extra S1000 a year per  farm i.s what we must have to build up a great rural  civilization.   And instead of the man who is nol trying  lo gel the extra s?500 by co-operation and marketing  tin owing stones at the man-who is trying lo get the  extra $500 by better farming, let them work together.  That i.s what all farmers should fight for.   To make my  meaning clear, let me give another illustration.   Cotton  manufacturing i.s like farming, in that in bolh industries there are continual improvements in methods, in  machinery, and in marketing. Now suppose a southern  cotton manufacturer were losing money ancl should  join   wilh  his brother manufacturers to  market  his  goods co-operatively.    That would mean more profit,  no doubt, ancl would be a wise move, just as it is a wise  move for our farmers.    But suppose this same manufacturer   kept   on   using   out-of-date   machinery,   unscientific methods, an uneconomical system of production, while northern manufacturers kept on improving  their methods,  using better implements  and   machinery, etc.   And suppose his manufacturing paper kept  on   telling   this   southern   manufacturer   of  improved  scientific methods of production, of labor-saving implements and    machinery   thai- olher   manufacturers  were using, and kept saying to him, 'We must use as  good methods as northern and western manufacturers  use or we will be pul out of business.'   Bul suppose hc  should then say, lI am going lo stop reading lhal paper.  1 am lired of so much leaching about belter methods  of manufacturing.   All I want is a new marketing plan.  1 can use the same sort of manufacturing methods my  grandfather used.'    The best system of marketing on  earth   wouldn't  save  that  manufacturer   from   bankruptcy, poverty ancl ruin.   It's thc same way with our  farmers.    They may adopt thc best marketing system  on earth, but they must also do belter farming or lose  out in competition wilh other sections."  EsmmEmissBm*_m^iMtmmamwmmm!9  No warping, bulging or breaking at the centre of heat���������������������������  the strain is taken up by the two-piece fire-pot which  permits no ashes to cling or clog.  Furnace  Let me show you the special features of the Sunshine  that help to effect that economy in fuel for which it is noted.  810  While many of our farmers have been frowning at thc weather thc past month, and complaining at their inability lo get their hay crop  under cover, Chas. S. Strickland, of the Lone Pine  Dairy, has worn a smile of satisfaction.' Under  ordinary conditions, the weather of lhe past few  weeks would have brought a frown to his face  also, but not this year. The secret of it all lies in  the fact that Mr. Strickland this season erected a  government-planned silo on his daiiy farm, and  his first crop of alfalfa was cleaned oil the field  pul into (lie silo in a single day. And his second  crop is now nearly ready for the mower.  This, one says, i.s alright for thc farmer who  feeds his crop, but it would never do for the men  who harvest their hay for lhe market. Quite true.  Bul where is the farmer who does nol feed a I least  a portion of his hay crop to his farm slock? And  would not a silo he a mighty handy thing lo have  on the place when a season such as the past two  or three seasons comes on?  Mr. II. O. English, Provincial crop instructor,  gives the following reasons whv every4 farmer  should pul up a silo on his farm: First, in those  jclisjr.icts_wher,e..fii,ne..raJns,,s|)oilJhe._rirsl.crop_.ol  SULPHUR FERTILIZER FOR ALFALFA  clover or alfalfa hay it proves an efficient means  of saving same. Second, Thc silo is lhe best-  known way lo slorc succulent fevd for the winler  feeding of live; slock. Third, The silo furnishes a  feed of. uniform quality. Fourth. Where a summer silo is used, lhe farmer need nol fear late  summer droughts. Fifth, Crops which would be  useless for-haymaking���������������������������i.e., thistles-and other  weeds���������������������������-may lie; preserved and changed inlo pal-  alablcrfood.^Sixth; More stoclrcan Ixy kepton a  'certain area where silage is fed than is otherwise  the case. Seven Ih, Less labor i.s needed on the  farm when a silo is used.  "Fvery farmer who has four or more first-  class dairy cows, or who i.s rattening or wintering  over eight beef animals, together wilh the average number of. other farm slock, should build a  silo for Ihe storage of succulent fved, unless he  can produce his succulent feed more economically in the form of roots. No farmer should  build a silo who cannot grow the fvvd lo fill il or  who has nol the slock lo produce suitable returns  from lhe feed fed] i.e., who keeps scrub stock."  During the pasl four years Ihe Southern Oregon  Experimental Station has been conducting extensive fertilizer experiments on alfalfa in the Rogue  River Valley. During the first two years it was  found lhal the yield of alfalfa could be increased  from 25 lo 500 per cent���������������������������depending on lhc type  0|" soil���������������������������by lhe application of 300 lbs. per acre of  either superphosphate or gypsum. Other fertilizers were also tried. As superphosphate, which  contains phosphorus, calcium and sulphur, and  gypsum, which contains calcium and sulphur,  increased lhc crop, il was concluded that lhc action oi* these fertilizers might be due to the sulphur contained, in them, and experiments were  slarfed lo determine this point. A portion of the  field was selected where-a Haifa had been producing unsatisfactorily yields for several years, and  which had never received fertilizers of any kind."  Two plots were fertilized wilh llowers of sulphur  one plot with iron sulphate, and onc wilh superphosphate. Check plots receiving no fertilizer  were left alongside the fertilized plots for comparison.

Me  shows lhat while the farmers in the Southern  Stales lived under lhe same general government,  lhe same general marketing and economic condilions, as the farmers in lhe Norlh and West, yet  the census figures prove that, chiefly because of  the heller farming methods of the Norlh, lhe  average North Atlantic Stales farmer earned $984  in a year while the average South Atlantic farmer  earned only $18 1���������������������������#500 a year less than his more  crease of slightly more lhan 100 per cent over the  unfertilized "check plot. The sland on the former was much thicker, taller, freer from weeds  and tiie plants were much darker in color than on  the killer.

No. 2, Armstrong. ^  Thursday, July 27,1916  THE ENDERBY PRESS AND WALKER'S WEEKLY  HARD HIT, BUT NOT COMPLAINING  Twelve years ago, Wm. Anderson started to clear up  the land and plant an orchard on his Riverside Ranch  north of Enderby. He worked hard and long, and was  painstaking in every detail. Every idea was tried out  before being adopted. He proved his soil, he proved  his trees, and hc adopted only proved methods in  handling them. Each year saw the orchard improved.  The trees came along splendidly. They could not have  done better. There could not have been a more painstaking man handling them. No onc could have done  more or belter work than hc. Last year he look his  first paying crop of fruit off thc trees. He shipped  some GOO boxes of apples alone. He expected this year  to market two carloads of apples. He will not have  apples enough from his orchard to make cider enough  for his home use. Most of his apple trees, and his  plum and pear trees, are gaunt and clean of leaves.  They are dead. The few varieties which are bearing  leaves are almost without fruit; some have a few limbs  on the north side which are bearing apples which are  below the standard. Nearly every tree is "scorched"'  on the south side.  Mr. Andrson has lumber on the ground for a new  packing house and pre-cooling plant which he intended to erect for this year's crop. - He . will  not put the building up. He has already cut out many  trees which were dead, and will cut out the balance  when he has harvested his alfalfa and clover crops.  These are the bald facts in relation to what last winter's cold and sunshine did for him. They are told not  by way of complaint, but as a warning to others who  may feel as Mr. Anderson and many others have felt,  that the lowlands arc,as good as the highlands for fruit  growing. No one will deny, that th'e lowlands are as  capable as the highlands to produce fruit, and of an  excellent quality. But the lowland orchards cannot  stand up under the occasional freaky weather conditions which hit this section now and then. True, wc  may not have another winter like last in a decade. But  then, again,,we may. And, -with this possibility, what  is the use of trying fruit raising on a commercial basis  on these lowlands, so ideal for dairying and mixed  farming? This is the view now taken by Mr. Anderson,  though there has not been a more loyal advocate of thc  lowlands for fruit orchards than he.  All the while the Riverside Ranch was developing  the fine apple orchard now a thing of the past, they  were developing, also, the dairy end, and Mr. Anderson  has onc of the finest stands of alfalfa in the district,  and his clover and other fields are showing Al crops.  With the orchard out of the way, we riiay expect to see  big developments in the' dairy line ,at the Rivcrsidc.-  .As Mr. Anderson puts it: "I can milk cows and raise  alfalfa and other things, but I don't, want to. I like the  fruil better.   But what's the use?'    "'���������������������������������������������;  INFANTILE PARALYSIS  Ut-    ���������������������������:*.

SPRING AND FALL FRESHENING  The time of freshening has a considerable influence on thc yield of milk.   The .best season, so        ^ t  far as the total yield is concerned, is,late autumn I jj"by ������������������7tariff, prohibitory or restrictive, that shall  Owing to this disease becoming epidemic in thc  city of New York and other parts of thc United  States, it is creating considerable alarm in some  parts of the country. Thc common impression is  that thc disease is incurable. This, however, is a  great mistake. According to medical authority,  the disease is curable, ancl the* shrinking of the  muscles of thc legs can be prevented. Infantile  paralysis has been known for 26 years, and in  thc past 15 ycars there have been many epidemics in various parts of thc United Slates.  Thc virus of lhc disease is a small body almost  loo small to sec under the most powerful microscopes. Thc virus is very resistant to heat, cold  and drying. Freezing docs not kill it. It can bc  dried and when again moistened becomes virulent  again. It lives very well outside thc bodies of  human beings. In the human being thc virus is  found in the secretions of the nose and mo(uth.  The infection gets into thc human body through  the nose and mouth. It locates in these cavities  ancl may not travel-further. Such persons arc  carriers. While not sick they arc capable of  spreading the disease to others.  In persons who become sick from the infection,  the virus passes from the nose to the spinal cord.  When it reaches the cord it involves thc membranes ancl especially thc ricrvc sells in thc front  part of thc spinal cord. This particular area in  the cord, called the anterior horn, contains the  nerve cells which govern motion through the  muscles. In some cases the inflamatory process  involves the entire length of the- spinal cord or  extends to lhc brain.  From five to ten clays after exposure the disease begins with fever. The fever is not high,  usually being about 101 to 103. Thc pulse beats  about 120. In most cases there arc vomiting,  diarrhoea, headache, pains anywhere throughout  the body, followed by weakness of thc muscles  ancl gradual paralysis, which rarely increases  after the third day.  The outlook of thc average patient is not bad.  Ninety-three per cent of thc cases survive, 7 per  cent die. The death rate is rarely more than 33  per cent���������������������������one-third of the cases die, two-thirds  survive. . -        ,  Infant paralysis is a disease of thc country and  small towns rather than of tiV ������������������ity.

Thc principal reason for this  is tliat-cows that calve at'this season make a second "spring" in the month of May,,when there is  a plentiful supply of young, fresh grass, and go up  in their yield instead of falling off, as is the case  with spring calvers at a similar stage of their lactation period. Thus a cow that freshens at the  beginning of October will bc in the eighth ancl  ninth month of her lactation period in May or  June. A good milker will then give as niuch as  ._ she-did in_thefourth-and _fifth_months���������������������������i.e., jn.  January and February. Thc corresponding  period for a cow that calves on April 1st will be  November and December, when she will probably  bc "dry," unless hand-feeding is provided on a  liberal scale. The extra yield of milk in the case  of the autumn calves is also due in a lesser degree  to the longer milking period, and thc better condition of the cows at the time of calving. ��������������������������� Cows  that freshen in October or November should milk  at least one month longer than those that come in  in March or April. Against thc extra increase  in milk has to bc set thc extra cost of feeding.  At no time in Canada's history has thc live  stock industry been as important as it is today.

It seems unbelievable that thc sane economists of Great Britain  and France should come lo this decision. It  seems unworthy of thc besl traditions of those  countries, and it shows a lack of foresight and of  consideration for the rest of lhc world, born of  blind haired and revenge."  KEEPING} ONES SANITY  Writing from a London hospital, Rodolphc  Simard says:  Dear Mother: Just a few words to let you know lhat  I am in hospital. I was wounded in the foot. A piece  of shrapnel hit mc. I was also shell-shocked. I was  in the famous" fighting at Zellebeck. I got out of it  pretty easy. I lost my chums. They were all killed in  one night. I had quite a shaking-up. I am better now.  I am able to walk around now. I was down to Hyde  Park this afternoon. I am right in the heart of London.  I won't see the front for a few months yet. The people of Canada don't realize the war yet. It's awful.  At Ypres the fighting is most horrid. I had two,  months of it, ancl was in every engagement. There is  always a continual bombardment on both sides. Ancl  you see as I was in the brigade wircrs, every night we  had to go over the top and fix the barbed wire entanglements. The least noise you would make they turn  a machine gun on us; so you can see I had quite a lot  of experience.   I will go back soon as.I get better."  The outcome of the battle is of little consc-        quence.   Thc real thing is, "how did you fight?" provide good roots for fall and winter use  Hubbard once said that in order to keep a well-  balanced mind, it was good for a man lo climb a  tree and hoot like an owl, every little while. He  was, of course, using a figure of speech. What  hc meant was, that it is good for us lo hold fast  to the inclinations of childhood, and occasionally  indulge them, in order that we may not fall into  the 'error of taking ourselves too seriously. In  "J. P.'s" Weekly, "Bruce" McConncll expresses  thc same thought when hc says: "Iii the system  of every normal man there lurks the instincts and  tendencies to original savagery. They;-find expression in a desire to go fishing, to live in the  open and to feed on thc atrocities of his own  frying pan, to spread his blankets on the ground,  ancl listen lo lhe whining song of thc omnipresent  insidious, infernal mosquito. When the red gods  beckon us back to the mountains, into thc depths  of the forests, by the roaring stream or lhc mir-  rowing lake, we self-confessed savages exultingly  answer the call. We fill our pack sacks with  simple camp impedimenta and hike for the hills."  As soon as peas have slopped producing, dig  thc vines in and plant some other vegetable.

In the first place, if his Butter  wrappers arc neatly printed with his name and  thc brand of thc butter on the labcl,_ the storekeeper can readily sell the butter at 5c' a pound  more lhan hc can get for butter wrapped in paper  lhal is not printed, and thc butter-maker gels thc  advantage in 5c a pound more for his butter from  thc merchant.  It is the duty of every butler maker lo comply with thc law,in this matter. Sonic butter  makers have only a cow or two, and make so little  butter that it docs not appear to Ihem lhal they  can afford to have their butter wraps printed.  They do nol like lhc idea of having 500 or 1000  butler wraps on hand. To accommodate this  class of butler makers, The Press has printed up  a quantity of "Custom" Butler Wraps. They arc  printed with the words "Fresh Dairy Bultcr" but  do not bear thc name of the maker. However,  these wrappers fill the requirements of the law  governing this point, and can be bought in small  quantities at the rate of 50c a hundred in 100 or  50 lots.

C. Prohibition Act?  The above i.s a fair slalemenl of  a question on which the electors of  lhis Province will easl a referendum vote on September Ulh.  "That   lhe   Prohibition   Acl   will  not prohibit" is now generally, admitted   by   electors   (among   them,  many  Prohibitionists)   in all parts  of the Province, ancl, in the face of  the  inclusion  of  the  "wide  open"  clause   which   states,   "Nothing   in  this Act shall be construed to interfere��������������������������� (a)    wilh   the   right   of   any  person lo import from without the  Province  liquor  for  bona  fide use  in   his  private  dwelling house,"  it  will  be impossible for any man io  successfully contend thai the measure will prohibit.  What, then, would be the result  should Ihe Prohibition Act be approved   by  the  electors?  Just this, and nothing more.

At the conclusion of lhc lecture  a poultry club was formed, and arrangements were made for meelings  lo be held every two weeks. These  meetings will include lectures and  also visits t'o many of the,poultry  ranches in the vicinity of Victoria.  Under the supervision of the live  stock branch, a poultry house has  been erected by the soldiers and ihe  fowls will be Installed in ihe very  near future.

Well may Ihe  reader ask, "I.s lhis Prohibition?"  and well may Prohibitionists, who  are lo an amazing extent ignorant  of Ihe real meaning of Ihe measure,  declare lhal such a condition i.s  impossible under the Acl. Mill it is  possible, in fact, the Acl, which has  been approved by Ihe Prohibilion  leaders, places special stress on  this "wide open" privilege to import.  Clause 57 of the Prohibilion Act  (quoted above) is a "blue sky"  clause. Il places no limit on the  amouni of liquor which may bc  ordered at one time. II makes no  .stipulation as to the frequency wilh  which such orders may he placed.  11 makes no provision whatever for  Government knowledge or regulation of the shipments.

VALUE OF PUBLICITY  In Sheldon's "Science of Successful Salesmanship" we find these observations:  "A  friend   told me not  long ago  that  on  returning to his  home   town   in   the   Old   Country  after  an   absence  of  20   years,  he  visited  the old shop  in which he  had served his apprenticeship and  there  he   found  lying on   the   top  shelf  some   of  ihe   same   bolls   of  cloth,  neatly   folded  and  carefully  papered, that.lie had handled as a  boy.    Such condilions simply mean  dry rot and final commercial decay.  To   succeed   in   modern    retailing  seasonable    goods    must    be    sold  within  the season  al  full price, if  possible,  and   if  nol  al   full  price  then  at  some price, whatever that  price may be.   To pursue any other  policy  musl mean that in the  following season  the  retailer will be  showing  old  goods  easily  remembered     by    observant    customers,  while his competitors are showing  new goods;  and  his prestige as a  progressive,  wide awake dealer is  at  once  injured,   if   nol  seriously  crippled.     Besides,   however   little  seasonable goods may be worth at  the   end   of   the   season,   they   are  worlh much less the following season, when newer and better things  are sure lo heavily depreciate thc  value of the older goods. There are  differences  of  opinion  among  retailers as to the value of newspaper  advertising,    bul    whatever    these  differences, I  feel assured ihat all  men   in   business   agree   as   lo   the  value of publicity.

TShe Queen of Oil Stoves  -^N'haUllie^lLausejsvLves^oJVCa.najthL.  have wanted is an oil-cooking stove  equal in equipment lo or closely approaching the gas range���������������������������something  safe, convenient and easy lo use���������������������������  an oil range With plenty of power,  which does not need constant  watching, which will give just the  degree of heat, intense or mild,  which you need for boiling, frying,,  baking or simmering. A cooking  equipment very economical to use,  which-will eliminate the- necessity-  of an overheated kitchen, and  which will make it unnecessary to  sweller over a hot coal or wood  range.  The Fulton Hardware Co. has  in slock a full range of Ihe McClary  Florence Oil Cook Stoves, and the  housewives of Enderby are urged to  visit Ihe store and have demonstrated lo them the excellence of  these greal labor savers in the  kitchen.     These   stoves    have   no  .__ i ck s__jl o^jreq u u:c___fcriiTunin g=to_  smoke, smell and soot up the house.  They have no valves to wear out���������������������������  nor clog���������������������������nor leak.y Their heat is  easily and quickly regulated by  turning a simple, little, patented  lever device., You light a match..  You turn a lever. At once you have  an intensely hot, clean blue flame.  The blue flame means that you are  burning oil-gas. The Florence turns  every, drop of oil inlo gas, mixing  with the right-quantity-of- oxygen  (air.) It cannot smoke and it does  produce the hottest flame for cooking, whereas, when the old kind of  an oil stove showed a yellow llame,  il was merely burning oil���������������������������which  does not produce a hot llame and  which does smoke and smell.
