Mrs. Campbell mixed him up  what she believed to be a doze of  epsom salts, and he drank a mouthful. The decoction caused him intense burning, and, all loo'laic, it  was discovered lhal instead of epsom salts Mrs. Campbell had made  the drink from Gillette's concentrated lye. When the mistake was  discovered Mrs. Campbell summoned Dr. Keith, who administered vinegar and followed this  with olive oil by the cupful. Thc  pain was excruciating. After being  somewhat relieved, Mr. Campbell  was removed to the Cottage Hospital, where hc is receiving the best  of care ancl is improving as well as  can be expected.

In a sweeping statement before a  Vancouver audience a few nights  ago, Rev. Dr. Sipprell declared lhat  the press of Ihe Province had small  claim lo public respect because thc  columns of lhe newspapers were  open lo receive advertisements in  opposition to the prohibition makeshift which thc intemperate temperance advocates arc attempting lo  foist upon lhc people in thc name  of prohibition. Mr. Sipprell apparently believes lhat thc press of  lhe Province should close ils columns to anything and everything  which would show up the weakness  of the proposed prohibition bill,  forgetting thai there are many just  as good men as Rev. Dr. Sipprell or old'acquaintances in Enderby."  Given  Two Slripcs  Corp. R. Airth writes from England: "As you see, I was promoted  to'corporal. I am still massaging.

But this is just what  Mr. Chas. E. Strickland, of thc Lone Pine Dairy,  is doing today. And he can well all'ord Lo-indulge  lhc laugh. He will Lcll you plainly, it has taken  him len or twelve ycars Lo learn from hitler .experience how lo make dairy farming comparatively easy and in a satisfactory measure profit-  ahle. Not that he knows all ahout it yet, hut hc  feels that hc is now on the right track and can  see clearly whal thc future will hring, under  average conditions. When Mr. Strickland purchased Lhe land lying norlh of Endcrhy as far as  the hrick yard and lying between the railway and  the river, thirteen years ago. it was covered with  hush ancl was "too low ever to hc made good."  There used to hc a slough covering thc greater  pari of whal is now his hay fields, arid for a con-  siderahle distance hordcring Lhe railwaj' track a  dense growth of hulrush, or tide, made thc  gathering of "cat-tails" the only attraction. Today, all this is changed. Fertile fields of clover,  timothy, alfalfa and corn are now laid out, and  ahundanl crops *archarvested. For a few years,  Mr. Strickland suffered an attack of lhc I'ruil-tree  craze, and he had to learn as others had to learn  he fore him and since, Ilia [These low lands can he  put Jo more protilahle use. After lhe fruit trees  came straight hay. and some wheat, oats, etc.  These were only partly successful. Thc handling  of lhe crops cosl nearly as much as their value.  Early lhis year Mr. Strickland creeled a silo,  inlo il he put his first cut of alfalfa. In a few  ������������������������������������������������������weeks-it-was ready-to he-fed, and furnished his  dairy herd Willi a nutritious green fodder until  the hay fields^were ready To he-lurncd-in lo pas-  lure. His'barns are now lull lo the peaks with  his later alfalfa cuts, clover and limolliy, and hc  has a cornfield ready lo he cut lor silage which  would fill two silos or more lo overflowing.   This  A few ycars ago, when Mr. Geo. Heggie was  managing the Stepney ranch, near Endcrhy, hc  experimented    extensively   with   sheep    raising.  This was onc of the features of lhe Stepney at lhat  lime.   And when Mr. Heggie was called to Vernon  to take the management of lhe Belgian Syndicate  estate, comprising some 17,000 acres, hc carried  with him'the results of his experience in this line.  At Inal lime it was thc intention of the Syndicate  to confine ils operations largely to fruit culture,  und hundreds of acres were set out lo apple and  other fruit trees.    Mr. Heggie immediately saw  that, to await returns from  thc fruit orchards,  meant several ycars of small returns, so he at  once branched out into slice]) raising, this promising  the quickest  returns.    Since  then  hc has  gone  farther into stock,  particularly hogs and  cattle.   Returns have heen so satisfactory lhal thc  hoard"of. directors-'of thc wSyndicalc arc urging  Lhat more and-more stock he pul upon lhc land,  and  Lhis advice is also heing forced  upon  thc  small holders of land purchased from thc Snydi-  calc.    In this connection, thc Agricultural Journal for August says:  "in 1913 it was decided to add sheep raising as  a feature of llie farm operations. In "July of that  year a flock of 1,800 was secured in Saskatchewan, 1,000 ewes ancl 800 wethers. They were  grade .sheep of several different hreeds. All were  wintered, the.ewes heing hred to pure Shropshire  sires. The lamh crop ol" 191-1 was ahout 1,100.  The wethers were sold at a good figure during  March, April and May. Thc average wool-clip  per head was"6 1-2 lh., which hrought 17 cents  per pound. For 1915 Oxford Down sires were  secured from the Colony Farm, with lhc view of  increasing weight. Spring iamhs six weeks old  hrought $6 each. Dressed mutton ranged in  priccl'rcm 1-1 lo 18 cents locally. Thc pells were  worth $1.50 Lo $1.75 in lhc local market. Thc  wool-clip of 1915 realized 23 1-2 cents per pound.  Shearing machines arc used. Thc sheep arc on |  the range in charge of a herder, except for ahout  eight cr nine weeks during the winter, when lhcy  arehousccl and fed mainly on alfalfa. While on  the range lhcy arc corralled at night as a precaution against coyotes, which are.occasionally cap-  Lured." Special attention is given lo hrccding the  older ewes early, so that in Lhc following spring  lhe lamhs arc ma Lured early enough to catch the  high price and allow time for finishing oil' these  ewes for fall sale.  "A numher of inquiries have heen received lor  hrccding stock, and orders of len and upwards  from various points in thc Valley ano :  have heen filled. In Octohcr, 1915, forty ewes and  a purc-hrcd sire were shipped, to Skidcgatc, Queen  Charlotte Island. Despite thc rather severe winler, thc sheep came through in good condition,  and in March there was a fine showing of young  iamhs, with some splendid specimens  them." v  No rust can attack the flues because they are so thoroughly aluminized, and they economize nearly every bit  of heat.

Better order some now f^  Thursday, September 7, 1916  THE ENDERBY PRESS AND WALKER'S WEEKLY  THE RIGHT KIND OF LOVE  Edward Goldbcck, in the Chicago Tribune, tells  this story:  It was about 1 o'clock at night when Fred  showed up in the club. Thc lew people who were  slill present were playing cards, so Fred, who  wanted to hc alone with his dismal thoughts,  went straight to thc reading room. But here hc  found his old friend John, surrounded on all sides  by piles of newspapers, as if hc were Verdun and  the papers his outward forts.  "Hello, Fred, Iioav arc you?" he cried cheerfully  "Rotten."  "What's thc matter?   A queer hour for a young  husband to hc in the club, 1 a.m.!   Quarrel with  Elsie?"  "You have the gift of second sight."  "Excuse mc, I don't want to intrdude.    Thc  situation on thc other side "  "0, bother thc situation on the other side! It  is my side of the situation I Avant lo tell you  ahout. You have known Elsie for years; how  docs she strike you? j  "What do you mean?"  "Well, give mc a characteristic of her!"  "She is thc charmingest, cleverest, piquantcst,  pug-nosiest little thing I ever saAV."  "She certainly is," said Fred meditatively, "but  her, pug nose is misleading.   And nowr listen to  mc.   You know my theories of life "  .   "Do I ?"  "You ought to, at least. I Avant to have as  much fun as I can get out of it. There is nothing  of thc reformer in mc. The \yorld, as it is, seems  good enough for me. I wanted a Avifc of my type,  a smart girl, who Avould enjoy everything I am  enjoying myself. All right, I married Elsie." He  stopped.  - "Well,  in  what has  she disappointed  you ?  Wants to bc a tenement worker?"  "It is not a matter lor.joking," said Fred dryly.  "To make a long story short, here is Avhat happened.   I took her to a rcvicAV last night ancl all of  a sudden, right in thc middle of a comical song,  she gets up and rushes out of the theatre.- I had  tp gather up all her things and follow-her like a  footman.    The men  smiled,  the  girls  giggled.  There were a tleast fifty people who knoAv me."  "I didn't know their chorus Avas as big at that."  L.:.. "Well,"I Avas furious.   I did not say anything in  thc car.   At home, however, I gave her a piece of  my mind.   Guess /what she. answered!"'  "Good night, nurse!" " .  "She said she thought she had married a man  who would respect her as his wife and not take  her'to see shocking things like that, and when I  told her that I only wanted'her to enjoy herself  and that I loved her dearly, she ansAvercd, 'I want  to be your Avife. I don't. Avant to be your pal and  share all those Ioav pleasures men seem to revel  in. You love me, but is that the right kind of  -love?".  MUST MOBILIZE FOR PEACE  "KILL THE GOVERNMENT'  Some of these Liberal speakers have a delight  ful way of sliOAving their ignorance of actual facts  Avhcti they jmakc their campaign charges against  the Conservative Government at Victoria. At a  meeting held in Penticton a fcAV days ago, Mr.  Ralph Smith said that "all Avas politics in B. C,  - from the lieutenant-governor down to the road  boss," and that "the lieutenant-governor should  he more than an ornament in gold lace to open  thc House. Hc should he able to put his foot  down on extravagant expenditures."  All of which is quite true.   But it should bc remembered that until a few months ago, thc office   of Jicutcnantrgovcrnor ,in_ British,Columbia was  filled by a Liberal appointed hy thc latcVLibcral  administration at Ottawa. Lieutenant-Governor  Patterson was in charge during all the ycars of  Premier McBridc's "extravagant expenditures."  The only complaint Mr. Smith could level  al thc Victoria Government's help to thc mining,  lumbering, fishing and agricultural industries  Avas thaf such assistance should have been given  "long ago." In this Mr. Smith shows marvelous  wisdVmV^Only the brightest of-men arcablcto  recognize such facts as these. When avc sec thc  marvellous strides made in the past quarter century in-the building and handling of the automobile, f'rinstahec, the steam engine, the aeroplane, etc;, Mr. Smith would cry, "0 yes, this is  all very nice, 'but it ought to have been done long  ago." Too bad Mr. Smith was not in power at  Victoria so as to have had all these advanced  measures of Premier Bowser- and his Government put into ell'cct before the byd Conservatives  thought about it.  An Undertaker's Story  Danny and Kerrigan went West and found  themselves busted. They stood on a bridge and  saAV a sign, "Five dollars for Anyone Rescuing a  Drowning Person."  "Kerrigan," says Danny, "you jump in and be  drowning, and Avhen you're going doAvn for thc  third toime, I'll jump in and save you, because I  can SAvim." . .  In jumped Kerrigan, and Avhen he began to  drown, he yelled, "Why don't you save mc?"  "G'wan, Danny yelled back, "I've just found  another sigh that says, 'Ten Dollars for a Corpse."  Be noble and the nobility sleeping in others will  rise in majesty to meet its own.  Salt will revive a dying fire.  Editor Press; Dear Sir: One is hearing on all  sides optimistic forecasts of an early peace. It  Avould be Avastc of effort to argue cither for or  against these anticipations, for time alone can  tell whether they arc right or Avrong. . Bul there  is onc very serious aspect of thc matter Avhich  most people entirely overlook, ancl which it seems  lo mc ought to bc ventilated in thc press of thc  Avhole country: No matter when peace comcs,arc  we ready for it ?  Busied with our personal or local affairs, avc  arc apt to forget national questions, and yet they  vitally concern us. For, just as a Canadian summer or Canadian winter means an Enderby summer or Enderby winter, so does national prosperity or depression mean local prosperity or depression. Wc arc part of the nation, and wc  flourish or languish Avith it; and it is our duty  and privilege, for thc protection and furtherance  of our own interests and, those of our fellow-  citizens, to think on national questions and to  make our voice heard.  Wc all know what happened when Avar Avas  declared. The steady floAv of money from Europe  which had for so many years irrigated our country, bringing forth such bountiful increase wherc-  ever its life-giving stream had reached, suddenly  stopped; the channels dried up, and everything  withered.- There Avas dearth, distress, wrath ancl  fear on every side.   Ruin stared us in thc face.  But, soon, remount commissions began to appear; munition contracts Avere let, men were enlisted by hundreds of thousands, and cheques for  wages and separation alloAvanccs began to hc  scattered all over thc land; in short, Avar expenditures took the place of that stream of ovcr-  scas finance Avhich had hitherto supported us. So,  for the time being, avc arc fairly prosperous  again?  But suppose peace should be declared to-morrow! What then? No more horse-buying, no  more separation alloAvanccs. But, instead, stagnation of business, shutting off of credit, flooding of thc labor market with returned soldiers,  cutting down of wages, indirect taxation ten  times greater than wc have ever paid before.  These, with many other developments Avhich need  not hc mentioned, but Avhich arc easy to foresee,  constitute the dangers of peace. And, at thc  present time, they present to us, the Canadian;  people', an aspect more threatening and more formidable even than the dangers of war.  , If avc arc thc .wise,'far-seeing victorious people  Avhich avc confidently hope .and believe ourselves  to;bc, avc shall :pro vide,-while there is yet time,  in the most thorough manner possible, against  thc inevitable reaction which miist- follow the  declaration of peace, and so avert the disasters  which otherwise must come,upon Vis.  The question will bc asked: Hoav arc avc to do  this? There will be no financial fountain-head  to take the place of war expenditures. What arc  avc to do?  Thc only ansAver is this: That Ave must face  the situation with clear vision and unflinchingly;  and calmly, sanely, uncomplainingly mobilize  our human resources and our material resources,  and all stand together for Canada ancl lhc Empire. Wc must mobilize���������������������������make moveable, available���������������������������for mutual self-defence, all that we have  ancl arc. Wc'haA'c shown that wc arc willing to  lay down our lives on thc field of battle for Canada, ancl many a noble Canadian has already  made thc supreme sacrifice���������������������������has died for us Avho  remain. Shall avc, then, hold back any of the  price that is necessary to make his sacrifice effective?   If Canada ancl our Brilish citizenship arc  worth-dying lor,,arc thcy_npt__vyo_rth living for?   Let tlie trumpet sound forth, let the watchman  proclaim throughout thc land, that thc time of  trial approaches, ancl let us gird up our loins and  meet U like men!  No  new organization  is. necessary.    We arc  already organized for all national purposes.   Wc  have   public  servants   at   Ottawa   drawn   from  among the ablest men in the land; they have the  necessary machinery,   Wc trust them, wc have]  placed "every thing inthcir hands.-Vfhen-lcHhem,|  Avhile prosecuting the war with the very ultimate j  of the power ancl resources wc have given, them,:  proceed with no less energy to mobilize, for peace,'  for without this the war might almost as well bc  lost! Yours faithfully, CITIZEN.  Waiting to Prove It  A Londoner Avhile staying in Scotland recently  required legal assistance, and, going up to a sensible looking man in  a  street of  thc town  in  which hc was staying, began, "Pardon me, sir, but  are you a-resident of this town?"   "Wed," was  thc cautious rcplv, "I've lecved here a matter  o' fii'tv ycars."   "Ah, then, perhaps you can help!  me," went on  the visitor.    "I'm  looking for a;  criminal kvwycr.    Have you onc in this town?"j  Thc Scotsman dropped his voice to a confidential;  whisper as he answered, "Wc hiv, but avc hinna  been able to prove it against him yet.   He's ower  sharp."  Wc arc no prophet nor the son of a prophet,  but we'll venture thc prediction that Premier W.  J. Bowser, four ycars from loday, Avill bc recognized as one of thc most capable and masterful  public men in the Dominion.  Salt mixed in cold water will remove bloodstains from linen.  The Sweedish settlers who in the  past year or two have bought J and  north of Enderby, have made a  wonderful showing in the short  time they have been located there.  Vast strctchcs'of excellent level hind  are this year producing field crops  where, only a year or so ago, it was  heavily wboded and non-productive. "Another year or two ancl we  shall have a "prosperous farming  community between Enderby ancl  Grindrod, where in past years only  a dense thicket met the eye.

In the first place, if his Butter  wrappers are neatly printed with his name and  thc brand of thc butter on thc label, the storekeeper can readily sell the butter at 5c a pound  more than hc can gel for butler wrapped in paper  that is not printed, and thc butter-maker gets the  advantage in 5c a pound more for his butter from  the merchant.         "  It is tlie duty of every butter maker to comply wilh thc law in this matter. Some'butter  makers have only a cow or two, and make so little  butter that it docs not appear to them lhat lhcy  can afford-to'have' their butter wraps printed.  They do not like the idea of having 500 or 1000  butter wraps on hand. To accommodate this  class of butter makers, The Press has printed up  a quantity'of "Custom" Butter Wraps. They arc  printed-with.thc words "Fresh Dairy Butter" but  do not bear thc name of the maker. However,  these wrappers fill thc requirements of the law  governing this point, and can bc bought in small  quantities at the rate of 50c a hundred in 100 or  50 lots.

It musl  also have occurred to him lhal  building materials and labor cosl a  greal deal more than lhcy did 20  years ago when the parliament  building was erected. He surely  can hardly blame the Government  for choosing to spend the money in  lhis Province rather lhan turn il  over to an American firm of contractors which put in the lowest  tender. Neither can the Government he greatly blamed, one would  Uiink7T'()r"fhdTicing" the" "contrnfclento cut 820,000 oil' his original lender.

The Government refused lo  meel lhis demand, yet Mr. Macdonald, who tried lo gel *r>!),()()i) more  for ihe contractor,* now endeavors  lo make the people believe that lhe  Government paid loo much Certainly this i.s a brilliant example of  consistency."  I am enclosing copy of a dispatch  just received from Lord Lansdowne  president of lhe British Red Cross  Society, advising that, with the approval of Their Majesties the King  and Queen and Her Majesty Queen  Alexandra, an appeal is being"'made  throughout Ihe Empire for contributions for Ihe great work of the  British i^ed Cross Socicly on "Our  Day," Thursday, 19th of October.  The appeal made last October resulted in a total collection of $1,-  858,008.50 in Canada, and very  large sums in other parts of lhe  Empire, but the increase in our  forces and in the great offensive  being carried on upon all fronts is  such that there is again an urgent  need of money.  British Columbia has responded  magnificently t o the demands of  various funds for patriotic purposes, and I am confidently, asking  for your assistance on lhis occasion  Tn Victoria and Vancouver the  Canadian Red Cross Society has  undertaken Lo make thc appeal, and  all olher bodies in those districts  arc requested to co-opcralc with  them in making a success of "Our  Day." Jl is expected that where-  evcr there is a branch of the Canadian Red Cross Society it will similarly undertake the work, but will  need all the support possible.  IL i.s earnestly requested lhat all  those whom this circular reaches  will promptly take steps in co-operation with all olher representatives  who have been circularized, and  any others whom they can interest,  to call a public meeting to further  the objects of this appeal.  First, by appointing a strong committee lo take charge;  Second, by appointing an Hon.  Secretary-treasurer who will advise  me of lhe preliminary steps taken,  sec to the banking of the funds, ancl  immediately after October' 19th the  remittance of same to the credit of  thc Lieutenant-Governor of British  Columbia, notifying mc of the  amount;  Third, by taking all steps possible  lo enlist public sympathy and by  keeping the question before the  public in  the local  newspapers:  Fourth, By organizing the collection of the British Red Cross Socicly, either by street collections  on October 19lh, by the giving of  entertainments, or by the soliciting  of subscriptions on or before that  dale, or by a combination of all  these or olher methods.  I shall be glad lo receive al as  early a date as possible an acknowledgment from yourself, or from the  person appointed for the purpose  in your district, so that il may be  known lhal the matter is in hand in  every pari of lhe Province, and that  the results will be commensurate  wilh the sympathy of the British  Columbia people for the activity of  the greatest   Red   Cross  Society  of  NATIONAL EIGHT-HOUR DAY  There will not be a strike of the  railway men of America. Thc strike  was slated to begin Monday morning last, but on Friday the United  States Government put through an  eight-hour working day law for all  railway men, which satisfied the  leaders .representing thc railroad  Workers, and lhe strike was declared off. The bill lhat stopped  the strike provides that after January 1, 1917, eight hours shall he regarded as a basis of icckoning for  a day's pay for men engaged in thc  operation of trains on all roads except roads less lhan 100 miles long  and electric lines; that they shall  receive pro rata pay for work in  excess of eight hours, and lhat their  rale of compensation shall not be  changed pending an investigation  for six lo nine months of the effect  of the eight-hour day upon the railroads by a commission lo be appointed by the President. Railroad  ollicials declare lhat the action of  Congress in passing the bill will  cost them -$00,000,000 a year in increased wages lo the trainmen, but  Brotherhood ollicials say the cnacl-  menl will mean nol moie lhan an  annual increase of $20,000,000.  IT STRIKES BACK  The Prohibition  Act Condemns  Itself  "Retalitory legislation," says a  Washington dispatch, "in support  of diplomatic protests against thc  Allies' interference with American  trade has heen decided on as a general policy of the Washington Government. A. high oflicial pointed out  lhat up to now the United States has  relied solely on lhe sense of justice  of the belligerent nations, but that  despite the practices which lhis  Government has denounced as illegal in a sweeping note, trade  pressure and discrimination have  heen increasing exasperalingly. An  amendment lo the revenue bill gives  the President discretionary power  lo prohibit thc importation of products which cannol bc. imported  into foreign countries from: lhe  United States. This is aimed directly at the British embargo restricting  the shipment of American tobacco.  An amendment to thc shipping bill  gives lhe Secretary of thc Treasury  discretionary power lo refuse clearance papers to all ships refusing lo  take American merchandise on  olher grounds lhan thc lack of  space. This amendment is designed to reach all vessels which  refuse to accept the goods of American firms on lhe Brilish commercial  blacklist."  Believe me,     Yours very truly,  F. S.
