In future, however, it is possible the  course of quicker action may have to be adopted,  as it has been adopted in most of thc cities in, the  Province.  That lhe tax sale can again be declared off must  bc a source of relief to thc city ollicials, and more  parlicuJarly to City Clerk Rosoman.

Another problem is suggested in a leaflet issued  by the Minister of Trade and Commerce. He  asks: "Are wc lo anticipate a Hood of immigrants  seeking homes in the last great West, or will that  Westward flow be checked by lhc need of rebuilding devastated Europe, by emigration restrictions and by thc sheer scarcity of men resulting from losses in war?" Another problem  suggests itself in this qucrry: "Are we to face a  period of diminished purchasing power combined  with higher cost oi" jiroduclion owing to dearer  raw materials, higher taxes and higher wages?  If such conditions develop, how long will they  prevail?   How can lhcy bcsl be relieved?"  These are a few of lhe problems whieh arc lo  bc considered al the conference of business men  of Canada lo bc held at Toronto at an early dale.  There are hundreds of others. But there arc  other problems which may bc classed as community problems���������������������������problems lhal each community must solve for itself. The onc nearest thc  heart of all is lhat of individual welfare, for no  community can be a healthful and helpful commimily if the individuals which combine lo make  it arc not healthful and hopeful. Thc nearer self-  suslaining each community becomes,' the heller  will be the condi lion of ils people individually.  This can alone come by and through systematic  co-operative effort. We must know thc requirements of thc communitv, then devise means of  meeting these requirements. Are wc doing this  in this community? Or arc wc just "muddling  along"? "Muddling through" used lo bc spoken  by Britishers in a somewhat bravado spirit. We  used to laugh at this national failing. But wc arc  fast learning that thc "muddling" must cease.  Wc no longer can laugh at it. It is becoming too  serious. Wc arc now casting about in the hope  of finding a way out. Shall wc do so? Arc wc fil  and ready for the ordeal wc musl pass through in  order lo iind lhis way?

Thc land available for agricultural purposes in this Valley is.  comparatively speaking, small in acreage. Thc  Valley is narrow, with rolling hills on cither side.  True, but very little of this land is now under  cultivation. Most of it is slill "in lhe rough." But  if every acre available i'or agriculture were now  under cultivation���������������������������as it surely-will bc some day  In lhc near future���������������������������there would still bc too little  of il, and its value would be loo high, for it to bc  given over lo hay and grain growing for lhe open  market. There arc thousands of acres of farm  land in llie Northwest suitable for this kind of  agriculture wherc there are len acres lhat can be  spared in the Okanagan Valley for the production  of lhe.se raw materials. Whal wc need here is lo  produce the finished commodity, with each farm  raising only sullicienl hay, grain, roots, etc., to  J'ccd to lhc stock raised thereon.  Cost accounting systems show that live stock  farms return lhe highest rate of inleresl on investment. Prof. W. F.

Better order some now #  Thursday, October 5, 1915  THE ENDERBY PRESS AND WALKER'S WEEKLY  IN THE TRENCHHES  Ptc. G. A. Neves writes from France: "Yesterday the Press was delivered to me in the trenches.  That same morning Fritzic enlivened us with a  few shrapnel shell.   I tried to read thc news, bul  lhe roar of our own guns made it difficult for mc  lo keep my attention fixed on the paper.   However, when tbe liill came, I was able to read in  peace.   Our regiment has been up against the real  thing, including gas alarms.   Am glad to say attended with few casualties.    A queer sensation  ���������������������������comes over a man,' looking across No Man's Land  i'or lhc first time.    And whal docs a man sec?  Nothing, but barb wire entanglements and thc  parapets of lhc enemy, who is invisible.   In lhc  daytime, looking through a pariscopc, if onc is  diligent, you may sec an occasional German, but  it is only a concealed sniper who can lake a shot.  Snipers on both sides arc very alert during daylight, and no onc intentionally attracts their attention, lor they are specialists in sending a man  over the Great Divide.   At night, No Man's Land  assumes a very mysterious aspect. For a moment  everything will bc so peaceful that it is very hard  for a man to realise he is facing sudden death,  then all of a sudden wc hear the sharp rat-tat of  tlie machine guns.and the spasmodic rifle shots.  Then  without  warning  thc  big  fellows  begin  coughing,   which   rudely  disperses   all   a   man  dreams of home and peace, and I agree with Gen.  Sherman, 'War is hell.'   But it has taken 20th  century civilization to produce the modern hell.  .... Maurice Salt is with our crowd, and he is  allright.   I think hc is the only Enderby boy with  us^   Thc rest arc mostly coast men."  RUMANIA'S PRECARIOUS POSITION  AN ADVENTUROUS VOYAGE  Ptc. Bernard Rosoman, who went overseas  with thc 103rd C. E. F., writes that hc is now onc  of lhc regimental constables and likes thc .life  immensely. Hc is stationed just 20 miles from  where hc was born. He says they have a fine lot  of officers, and he especially likes Major Black.  He says lhcy had a somewhat adventurous voyage  across the seas as lhcy missed their convoy in thc  fog and, finding themselves alone, sailed in a  zig-zag course for thc latter part of lhc journey  so as to avoid submarines. ' Onc day while lhc  boys were in thc bathing hole on 'lhc ship an  officer rushed down and said, "For God's sake,  boys, come up on deck or. you will all die likcrats  in a trap in a few minutes!"- Many rushed up on  deck, leaving their clothes below, but Bernard  said to himself if it was lhat bad hc might as well  slay where hc was, and so dressed himself at his  leisure, and by the time hc got on deck the ship  had evidently dodged the submarine or torpedo  or whatever it was. Many of thc boys lost money  and belongings in thc scamper with their clothes  under their arms up to thc deck.  THINKS HE HAS SERVED WELL  SECRET SOCIETIES  Instead of Rumania being a source of. help to  thc Allies, it looks now' as if her joining the Entente against the Teutons is going to prove a  pivot in thc East in favor of thc enemy. Apparently thc sudden counter offensive assumed by  Mackcnscn when Rumania took the field against  .the Austrians, was unlooked for by Rumania, ancl  " it was found to bc impossible to cope with it and  at the same time carry on the original plan of invasion of Austrian territory. A glance at, the map  will show thc immense strategic value of thc new  movement for thc Teutons. Rumania is shaped  like a boot. The movement bf Russo-Rumanian  troops into Transylvania was made directly  ^across the,instep of the bootv ,.It was a short-cut  from Russia into Austrian territory. Biit at the  moment Russian troops started into Transylvania  from this direction, Gcrman-Bulgarian-Turkish  troops invaded Rumania from Bulgaria at the  licclof thc boot.   The Dobrudsha District eni-  'braces thc heel,of the Rumanian boot,.and it is  here thc Teutons have succeeded in making their  . greatest gains. In order to meet,this sudden invasion from an unlooked-for source, Russian and  Rumanian'forces have been forced to give up  most of the territory captured in Transylvania,  and Teuton reports under date of Sept. 30th state  that "the encircling battle at Hcrmannstadt,  which began Sept. 26th, has been won. Under  command of General von Falkcnhaync, German  and Austrian������������������troops defeated strong sections of  thc first Rumanian army, and thc remainder of  thc enemy troops lied in disorder into thc impassable mountain counlry.'"  It is not more than 125 miles across Rumania  at thc ankle of thc boot, and, with thc Auslrian-  . German troops invading from the instep and thc  Bulgarian-Gcrman-Turk troops coming'in from  the heel, it would not be surprising to sec the new  Balkan front extending through Bucharest, the  ���������������������������Rumanian=capitalrl'rom-thc-Bulgar-ian-bordcD*ta  thc Transylvanian passes, now reported to bc in  thc hands of Austrian-German troops, virtually  cutting off thc toe of thc boot.  THE WAR OF THE FUTURE  A correspondent"writes the Press: "With thc  change of government a lot of appointments will  inevitably be made, and Conservative foremen go  out and Liberals take their places. This occurs  with every change of government and is to bc  expected, iri a general way. But when wc think  of these changes it is well that we pay tribute lo  those retiring foremen who have served well, ahd  in this connection wc wish to mention the name  of Henry Baxter, who, ever since he look hold of  thc Mabel Lake section as road foreman has been  a civil servant in thc best sense of thc word. Party  politics were never discussed with thc men at  work on the roads. He would say, 'My instructions arc to distribute thc work among the settlers  as much as possible,' and this hc did regardless of  lhcir political leaning."  MEN WANTED FOR FORESTRY BATTALION  There is a demand for men to enlist in the  242nd Forestry Battalion. Several drafts of recruits have already proceeded overseas from this  district to join this unit., The wages for experienced millwrights, sawyers, "cooks, etc., are  graded according to skill'and efficiency, and applications  for  enlistment Vwill  be  received  by  Quarter-master Sergeant H.

Thc war area is a definition of thc  past, and thc Germans, who complained that Freiburg���������������������������when it was bombed by the French���������������������������was  outside the sphere'of military operations, have  already dropped bombs on London; and women  and children living'almost on the borders ol  Wales have been killed by Zeppelin raiders coming from Central Europe. Ten ycars ago Count  Zeppelin was laboriously seeking lo construct a  lighter than air ship which would travel a lew  dozen miles al eighteen miles an hour; ten years  hence it will be as easy for airships from Europe  to drop bombs on the Mississippi valley. Submarines can now cross lhc Atlantic; ten years  hence they will circumnavigate the globe, and il  England were beaten, in this war thc terms ol  peace would include lhc cession of the Bermudas,  at least one West Indian island within easy reach  of tbe Panama canal, and a chain of stations  across the Pacific. Science, which is depriving  Great Britain of her insular security, will not long  leave America in its paradise of isolation.  Speaking of fire escapes, a woman was heard to  remark the other clay that her husband was the  Greatest fire escape on record���������������������������hc had not built a  fire in forty years���������������������������but, since Woman Suffrage  had come inlo force, she said the fire escape  would be a thing of the past.

RECRUITING FOR THE NAVY  Co-operation between tbe military and naval  authorities is being arranged in connection with  the enlistment of recruits in Canada for the British navy. Five thousand is the number sought.  An ollicer of thc R. N. C. V. R. will be at Salmon  Arm October 10 to 14, when recruits will be examined and signed on. Previous experience is  unnecessary. Thq pay is practically the same as  for the regular anpy forces, with separation allowance where necessary. Kit and victuals free  and liberal. Term of service, 3 years, or duration  of war. Work consists of patrolling the Atlantic  and Pacific coasts, guarding troop and munition  ships, hunting submarines (as requisite.)  INSECT PESTS PLENTIFUL  Local agriculturists who have given the matter  some attention, tell us that lhis year brought out  almost every imaginable insect pest of the farm  and orchard, as well as being onc of the worst  mosquito seasons on record. Black aphides  abound in countless millions, but the absence is  noted of thc cabbage while butterfly (picris  brassicae) which is the parent of that destructive  green caterpillar; also there have been no  "daddv-long-lcgs" lhis year. Thc Cicadia, which  annually ripsaws the young twiggs of thousands  of apple trees, was also absent, and wasps have  kept the house-fly pest down lo the minimum.  Salt mixed with soda is a remedy for bec  slings.  ButterWrapper  Parchment  The Dominion law against the selling of  butler without the words "Dairy Butter" or  "CretTnTerj^Bu 11 er''���������������������������aiTthcrca scfm ay=bc���������������������������prin ted ***  on lhc butter wrap, is a blessing in disguise to the  average farmer. In the first place, if his Butter  wrappers are neatly printed with his name and  lhe brand of the butter on the label, thc storekeeper can readily sell thc butter at 5c a pound  more than hc can get for butler wrapped in paper  that is not printed, and thc butlcr-makcr gets thc  advantage in 5c a pound more for his butter from,  the merchant.   -  ���������������������������  It is the duty of every butter maker to comply with the law in this matter. Some buller  makers have only a cow or two, and make so little  butter that it does not appear to tliem that lhcy  can afford to have their butter wraps printed.  They do not like lhc 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" Butler Wraps. They are  printed with the words "Fresh Dairy Butler" but  do not bear the 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. If you do not require butler wraps in  larger lots, take these wraps in lesser quantities.  -    $2.75  -    -    3.75  In lots of 500,  In lots of 1000,  The Walker Press THE ENDERBY PRESS AND WALKER'S WEEKLY-  Thursday, October 5, 1915  DECLINE SUBSTITUTES  TIME TO THINK  Armstrong Fall Fair Well Attended  and Marked by Strong Features  Tlie directors and officers of the  Armstrong and Spallumcheen Agricultural Society provided every  possible inducement to make the  Fall   Fair  held   last   week   an   un-  ficlds of commerce ancl production  ���������������������������fields quite as important as those  at the front.  Mr. Foster is an orator of the first  rank.    His  words were moderate,  qualified success. But all ell'orts it j but intense, and his delivery  was possible to put forth could not j powerful in its dignity and strong  overcome the handicap under j ring of sincerity. He told ofthc  which this district, in common with i needs of the men at the front; of  most others, is operating. In every  department and in all classes, there  was unmistakable signs of falling  off, not only in numbers of exhibitors bul also in quality and se  their valor and determination; he  told of the need of lhe .Motherland  and of .Canada; he told of the, requirements of the community, the  Valley of which we arc a part; he  up of the exhibits.    This may bc told of the need of greater produc  Leslie's says this of conditions in  the stales, but if it were said of  conditions jn Canada it could not  hit the nail more fully on the head:  '' A m a n w h o built a b u n ga 1 o w  wilh his own hauls" acknowledged  that he hadn't the skill to hone a  razor. This was nothing to his discredit. We are not all endowed with  Ihe same gift. Some have the gift  of tongues, some of scientific  knowledge, some of finance, medicine,   law,  and   some  of  theology.  What this world needs is the right  man in thc right place. This nalion  needs most of all a statesman for a  statesman's job. "What would be  thought of a clerk, machinist or barber who should undertake to solve  the problems of astronomy, or to  make the rounds of the physician  in administering lo Ihe sick? Yet  under our form of government wc  can and do elect to our lawmaking  bodies men with no legislative ex-j  perience, no conception of the lim-j  itations of the law and no business  knowledge���������������������������men with smooth tongues and persuasive ways, persistent seekers for public place.  "As a result, we enact laws one!  year that must be repealed the nextj  because they will not stand the test;  of the courts. All the lime and j  money spent on such legislation isl  worse lhan wasted and lhc*** patient i  taxpayers foot the bill. Still worse,!  we have laws so unfair, inequitable i  and destructive that the.v cripple*  business, handicap trade and restrict commerce, ancl once more the  taxpayers foot the bill.  "The craze for lawmaking that  has encumbered  (he statute books  wilh a mass of undesirable and un-j  easily accounted for by Ihe lack of  help, owing to lhe large numbers  going to Ihe front, and the general  depressed condition of the markets.  For instance, with sugar high and  Hour 80 to $10 a barrel, there could  not be any inducement offered that  would have encouraged home-cooking, etc. Consequently the show  cases usually filled with delicious  bread, cakes, etc., were this year  virtually empty. And with mothers  and daughters knitting sox for  soldiers, there was no lime for  fancy work, and this department  fell far short of lhal of former fairs  at Armstrong. In fruits ancl vegetables the showing was more nearly  up lo lhat of past years, but here,  loo, there was evidence of lack of  care and finish on the part of the  growers. The poulty exhibit, while  good in quality in certain classes,  lacked in- numbers, there being but  little competition. Thc horses,  cattle and pigs exhibited were only  ordinary, particularly as to condition. The single department showing an improvement over former  years was that of sheep. Here there  were many pens of thc very best���������������������������  marking, shape and condition.  Bruce Oldford was the* only Enderby exhibitor in poultry. Hc had  nine birds entered ancl won five  firsts, three seconds and one ,third,  besides winning the special for the  best bird in the show���������������������������a Partridge  "Wyandotte hen.  j. H. Croft and AV. T. Marshall  were the principal exhibitors, if nol  the only ones, who in former years  entered birds in any number, and  were again on deck with numbers  and quality.  In sheep, J. W. Philips' Leiscesler  ewes; W. X. Townsend's Southdown  ram; W. T. Marshall's Shropshircs,  and IT .E. YVaby's Shortwools, took  leanding place in these grades.  tion,   greater   co-operation,   fuller  harmony  and   completer sacrifice;  he  urged  the giving of the best  we've got in an effort to solve thc  great problems confrontng thc Dominion. Referring lo the time  when the war must end, hc said it  will be a time of great re-adjustment, .not only in nations ancl in  communities but in individual conduct of life, out of which must  come a truer manhood, a" fuller  civilization and a completer, understanding.
