Pte. Pat Mowat, writing from the  Somme fronl, says the lighting there  was at lhat time very severe. He  was passing bombs to the front  trenches onc day when a snipper's  biillol passed through his helmet,  but didn't do anything worse lhan  scorch his hair. At thai time many  German prisoners were being sent  lo the rear, and a large proportion  of them were marines.  At a meeting of the Trench Comfort Club at thc home of Mrs. Mackay last Friday, Mrs. Baxter and  Mrs. Parkinson presented tiie Club  with $22.15, proceeds from a social  gathering held by lhc people of  Aslilon creek, at, thc home of Mi7,  and Mrs.. Parkinson the previous  evening. This sum, added lo "what  the ���������������������������Cliil)   already   has   on   hand,  brings the total up to $94.

They give themselves up  TRENCH COMFORT CLUB  WORK  Pie. J. E. Pacey, writing from the  fronl lo the Trench Comfort Club,  says: "I received a parcel from  you good people again yesterday,  and I musl say I was certainly delighted with it. These parcels arc  a God-send lo us fellows out here,  who are going through the toughest  of hardships, and then to know our  good people al home are thinking  of us, il makes us feel as if we are  fighting for something. No words of  mine can tell you how much 1  thank you, one and all, for your  kindness lo me, and I only hope I  may have lhe pleasure of thanking  you personally some day.'. Wc are  having a fairly lough lime of il just  now.' Quite a lol of rain, which  makes it very uncomfortable both  in and out oi' Ihe trenches. But ii  is no use complaining. Wc have got  to.beat Fritz at all costs, and wc are  sure'doing it. "We arc driving him  further and further back, and gain-  thc worst way.   I want you to thank  all the kind people for me."  Pics. Gordon Duncan, Fred A.  Johnson and Leslie Mackay combine in sending Iheir message of  thankfulness: "We receivedt your  parcels a few days ago, while on  march from Belgium into France,  aud we would like to assure you  that we appreciate your kindness  very much, for we value anything  from our home town very much  these days. This leaves us all in the  best of health, bul, of course, longing for the home life very much."  tribute lo lhe parcels to bc sent the  boys al thc front will kindly leave  al Mrs. Grey's this week.  The Vancauver Milling Company  has leased' the elevator in connection wilh the Enderby (louring mill  and is storing grain purchased in  the Valley.

There is a lot of bayonet work here,  and Fritz is nol able to stand up  against our men* at all, and he very  well knows il, so we are sure of a  swift and speedy victory, and believe me, this part of the line is* a  hot place. Something doing all the  lime. No rest for Fritz. Our artillery is working liighl and day, feeding Frilz with irpn rations, and wc  are under fire all thc lime."  "I forgot to mention I was hit below Ihe knee by a piece from one  of' Fritz's shells which burst near  More a  bruise  lhan  anything  belter to store and hold wheat- for  the higher price than to mill it, and  it is likely this i.s Ihe purpose of the  ���������������������������Vancouver company. Next season,  however, il is possible wheat will  be contracted I'or to be milled in  transit at * Enderby, and there is  good reason lo believe that next  year wc shall sec the mill in full  operation.  MEASURING PARTY  The people-of the Ash ton Creek  dislrict turned out generously in re-|m'e  shifts, with hundreds of tons of potatoes coming in from Ihe neighboring ranches al very lucrative prices.  The whist drive held Tuesday  evening in K. of P. hall in.aid.of the  hospital fund, proved very successful, netting.-..the board some-  Ihing over $40. The ladies' prize  went to Miss Carlson and that for  t h e j genllemen Sva s jvon_ J> v - Joe  Doerllirigcr.  Owing to there being so many  calls upon lhc generosity of the people of Enderby and district, lhe  usual market stall will nol bc held  on Saturday, the 11 lb. Anyone  wishing to contribute articles may  leave Ihem at the Red Cross rooms,  where they will bc sold.  Mrs. Tompkinson received word  from her husband, who was seriously wounded in lhc fighting in  Flanders some months ago, thai he  has fully recovered, I hough his  condition is such that he will not  be permitted to return to, the lighting line. He has been retained on  the ollice staff.  Contractors Jones and Granl arc  at work on the Mara public school  lhis week and hope to have thc  cement foundation laid within a  week or ten days. The new school  will be a two-room structure with  every modern convenience looking  to llie educational advantage of the  children of that thriving locality.  Manager Bobb has concluded to  put' the great Mutual Master Plays  on the screen at the Enderby Opera  House. He has cancelled thc "Trey  o' Hearts" serial, and will return to  the Mutual service with next Saturday's show. Hereafter, until further  notice, there will be no Friday evening show. Thc Mutual Master Play  for^Salurday evening will be "The  Secretary of Frivolous Affairs," said  to bc one of the best, and a comedy  of the better sort.  spouse lo lhc following invitation:  Il will be a pleasure  Beyond all measure  To  welcome  you   hearty  To our measuring parly;  Bul, before you slarl, -  Thc essential part  Is to count up right  -You r-=f eeUi luhei ght   All we dare ask  For our generous repast,  Is just two cents a foot,  Each extra inch, if any,  Will be laxed at thc rate  Of a single penny.  The party proved a mosl enjoyable event.

After having spent sixteen  days straight in the trenches and  -theii-m a rcli i n g_lo u__ou t___ay___vi1 h  lhe whole of one's belongings on his  back, you cannot wonder thai a parcel similar to the one received from  you being very much appreciated.

"It i.s really wonderful thc good  work that institutions of the same  calibre as your own are doing .for  the boys-here,-and-4-would like-to  make special mention of the Y. M.  C. A. I hope one day to personally  explain this exceptional work to my  friends in Enderby."  Pte. All' Castle sends these words  of appreciation: "Very many  thanks for thc nice parcel received  al a time when I needed it most.  Thc lasl trip in I got a very slight  scratch on the left hand, wilh a  small piece of shrapnel. If any of  lhe boys are struck Ihey have to be  inoculated to prevent blood poisoning, so that i.s the way the very  small wounds get reported. 1 am  telling you this in case you sec it in  the* paper 1 was wounded. Anyway  I got down to find the parcel wailing for me. I had not taken my  boots off for. four days, and 1 had  not a pair of socks, so you may  know how useful lhe socks were.  Then.smokes are always in demand.  It is a caution the cigs we smoke out  here. We had a very good trip, but,  gee! we were tired; lhc way we had  to work was a fright. But we got  fruit for' our labor by laking a  piece of thc line and aboul 150  prisoners.   Nol so bad, eh I  "Charlie and I, old Juck, arc all  fine. I think all the Enderby boys  are out but McF.wen. He had a  slight wound on the hand and  chest. You would see that Capt.  Leduc. from Armstrong, was also  wounded. He is a dandy officer.  The bovs are wanting.him back in  N..O. POULTRY ASSOCIA TION  A0spccial meeting of Ihc-Northcrn  Okanagan Poultry Association was  held al Armstrong last Salurdav,  Ocl. 281 h, al 3 p.m. There were  present, Messrs. Marshall (in the  chair), Allison, Croft, l.u-favi. Hawkins, Long and Gillman. -  The real business of the meeting  was.to appoint delegates to lhe'Provincial Poullrv Show to be held at  Nelson, Dec. 1*2-13-14-15, and to thc  Dislrict Poultry Show to bc held al  Penticton, Dec*. 20-21-22. Mr. Marshall was elected for thcProvincial  show, with Mr. Allison as-alternate,  and Mr. Croft was chosen for the  District show, with Mr.-.Logan -as  alternate. .,.  .     Sr  The secretary was instructed-to  have  membership   tickets ."printed,*  and the." executive committee .were"  urged "10 make a rnstlefOinnembers,*  the fee-being placed at.$1 per year.  It was decided that the Association should donate lo the Provincial  show al Nelson, two specials to.'the  value of;$10, preferably cut glass.  It was also decided to give specials  to the same value lo the District  show, in addition lo the cups now  held by the association for open  competition.  ' "We ask thc Armstrong and Enderby public, especially all who are  poultry raisers, to do their best lo  help along lhis association," writes  the secretary, II. A. Allison. "Wc  can do a good work, which will  mean dollars to all of you, if you  will just give us your hearty cooperation, your good will, and help  us along financially by becoming a  member and by subscribing thc  small sum of onc dollar per year."  "GO AND SEE IT ! "  ^"T-he=BirlIrfdhn\ation^is-\said-lo  >*>e one of the greatest picture  plays ever staged.

Mouse next Thursday evening, Nov. j  ���������������������������Olh.: Speaking, of the appearance  of "The Birth of a Nation" in Lon-1  don, Eiig., "The Cinema." a London  jourmd _says ediIorially: " 'The  B'i rt Ii"of a Nalion'has ad vancedycvn  London like a great wave of inspiration; a new lilm"gospel reaching out to hitherto undreamed of  heights of power and imagination.  No word of ours could do justice  to thc stupendous theme which the  film unfolds, now to the enthralling  and deeply thrilling fashion in  which it is handled. Being at a loss  for phrases of our own, we gladly  borrow one from a friend and describe il as 'lhc greatest spectacular  drama since lhc Creation.' If lhat  bold phrase does nol convey a hinl  of thc film's attractions, we do not  know what will. Our advice to all  is: 'Go and sec it!'"  WILL OPEN LOGGED-OFF LANDS  Dominion Deputy Land Agent  Campbell visited this district some  davs ago, and, in company with  Deputy Fire Warden Hawes, went  over all lhe logged-off limber berths  of the Okanagan Saw Mills, in the  vicinilv of Mabel Lake and Mabel  Lake Valley, for the purpose of  cruising the limber remaining uncut. Mr. Campbell, we are given to  understand, will report to the Land  Department such berths as he finds  logged off. These will immediately  be opened lo settlement. It is.reported lhat several limits arc to bc  cancelled and the land thrown  open, which will make homesteads  for quite a number of settlers.  A  ROYAL   WELCOME  The congregation and friends of  St. George's Church gave Rev. and,  Mrs. C. Reed a royal welcome on  their re I urn to their Enderby field  of labor, after an absence of more  than a year during Mr. Heed's service overseas as chaplain. < The  welcome took the form of a supper,  served by the W.A. ladies Monday  evening in thc Guild Hall, -where  plales were laid for seventy. * The  supper was of a sumptuous character and was only surpassed by the  warmth of the people's welcome.  Mr. Rosoman, on  behalf of  the  church board and congregation, delivered the formal welcome, setting,  forth the deep, underlying need of  the   church   in   common   with   all  others,    for   a   larger   work    and  clearer vision as to the real meaning  of the spiritual revival now setting'  in as a result of lhc great changes' *  brought about-by the war and-war   ���������������������������  condilions. ���������������������������   -  Iii his reply 19 thc words of welcome so welfspokcn,;Mr. Reed mosl'  sincerely thanked lhc people of-the  church and of Enderby.

Hc said words could nol express the  admiration one fell for lhc men and  women  of Ihesc countries.    What  men have done and are doing 'daily  would  surpass  tne  imagination   of  anyone not placed in touch with if.  What lhc men suffer, whal they endure, and thc spirit of lhe'men in   ���������������������������  lhat suffering and  endurance was  simply beyond expression.   And hc  saw flic women of England and of  .  Franch doing the work of the men,  and doing it in sonic instances better than lhe work had been done by  thc men themselves.    If the spirit  of the men was grand lo witness,  thai of the women of lhe fighting  nations was superb.  Speaking of thc enemy, Mr. Reed  said  thc newspaper stories  telling '  of   Ihem   surrendering   in   groups,  throwing upjhcjr_ hands, ctc, werc_  pure fiction.   'Hiis wis not the tiTvfe  to speak in praise of Ihem, bul he  thought all should understand thai'  thev were no mean fighters.   They  were as fearless and as heroic in  their suffering as our own men. The  only difference*.was that the British  soldier   had   more. initiative,   and,  in all encounters man to man the  British soldier had proved himself  the superior.  -V\li\ Rced-saidniicllwar has seen .  i'nahv changes in England, but in  nothing more than in the general  spiritual condition of the people.  Jusl at this time, hc said, there is  going on Ihe most remarkable revival throughout the country. In  every village and town, in city and  counlry, women missionaries are  lining from house lo house carrying  the message of salvation and the  larger spiritual life. II is, he said,  onlv the forerunner of lhc greater  movement which is sweeping over  Europe, nol only France and England, but the countries of the enemies at war with Ihem. as well.

To lhe  norlh, in llie direction of Grindrod and Mara,  many slrelches of clearing wilh fields coming* for  the first lime under lhc plow are now showing  where il was bush before. In the Swedish scllle-  nicnl north of lhe Grand Bend farm, hundreds of  acres have been redeemed from the i'oresI, and  in lhis vicinilv particularly lhc showing of lhc  pasl season i.s" most encouraging. These people  make (he finest class of sclllers. They arc industrious, honest and persevering, and when they  slarl a proposition they carry it through. II is  likelv wc shall sec much more land lying in bush  belwecn Enderby and Grindrod soon in lhcir  hands and hrought under cultivation. Mr. Larscn  and Mr. Olson, who came from thc Norlh west thc  past season, have erected comfortable homes on  their land, and the example set by Ihem is being-  followed by others who have recently purchased  land in lhal vicinity. In and around Mara and  Grindrod sclllers arc making good in everything  -I has.far, tried. and..whaUhcv.hayc done in a .small  wav wc may expect to see them do on a much  larger scale as lhcy become better able lo handle  themselves.  There has been a large increase in stock on the  various farms, and lhe growing tendency is to  go stronger inlo mixed farming, wilh callle and  hogs on' the farm lo feed lhe crops to. Many  farmers fully realise that to ship out lhe raw  product i.s a. mistake when they can as well turn  (Till VheVinished- product.--AVitbVhisobjccHn  view Ihey are bringing in graded sires, and are  rapidly raising lhe slandard of lhcir farm slock.  In a lew seasons we should see lhe output from  the farms of lhis district more lhan doubled,  and lhe farms broughl up lo a much higher slate  of cultivation.  It used to be the custom I'or every man,  woman and child in Enderby and district to take  pride in the success of every home industry. And  it was not so many ycars ago, as years go. Then,  lo ask for, or for a merchant to offer i'or sale, anything but the home-milled flour, was considered  little short of a crime. Merchants and people  stood shoulder to shoulder in support of the home  mill. There was a pride in local industries lhal  was cheering to see. Thc spirit of loyally was con-  tageous. if spread into every business and shone  in every eye. There was a pulling together lhat  attracted and held. And lhis loyalty at home  drew inleresl from thc outlying district, and  town and dislrict pulled together like a first-class  working team. Enderby pulled for the district,  and the district pulled for Enderby. Wc had no  shippers' union, egg circle, or other like organization, but the shipments of farm produce from  Enderby then amounted to carloads wherc today  they run in tons. And thc farmers of the district  used lo line up I'or blocks awaiting their turn to  unload their wheat at the mill.  That was before thc growth of the spirit of  destruction. Things locally were then on a constructive basis. Men believed lhal lhcy could help  themselves and help the community belter by  building up thc business of a local rival lhan by  tearing it down. They felt lhal to attempt to  build up oneself at lhc expense of another was to  eventually destroy bolh.  FORCING AN ELECTION  Thc announcement which is persistently made  form Ottawa source, seems to come from Liberal  politicians and Liberal newspapers. They have  set il for the early part of next.year. It is nol  strange lhal all talk of an election emanates from  Opposition sources. It would bc plums for the  Liberals lo bring on an election while lhc war is  on. The calamity cry would again bc heard, and  issues would be"broughl up which would seriously divide the people and imperil the work of  the administration in carrying on lhe war. Canada needs all her best men at this lime perfecting  and keeping in operation her war policy and her  preparation for peace. Few men have any time  for politics these days. II was only a year ago  lhat thc Hon. Rodolph Lcmieux declared in Montreal that a war-lime election would bc a crime.  Only a few days ago, this same Mr. Lcmieux told  a Montreal audience lhat an election would come  like a thief in the night. * ������������������  An election may come next year, bul il will nol  be because thc counlry desires it, nor of Conservative choosing. The Liberals arc in a position to  bring on an election. Thc life of Parliament,  under normal conditions, would have expired in  October, just ended. It was extended forGa year.  Unless the Liberals agree to a fiu-lhcr extension  from next October, a war-lime election is inevitable. The Government must go to thc counlry,  musl temporarily divert ils energies from war to  an election campaign. This is what lhc Opposition leaders arc now proposing.   ,  MUST ECONOMIZE OR GO HUNGRY  CLIMATE OF BRITISH COLUMBIA  Speaking of the climate of this Province, a  writer in Bulletin No. 27, issued by lhe Bureau of  Provincial Information, says: "The climate of  British Columbia as a whole oilers all the features which are lo be met wilh in European countries king wilhin the temperate zone, such as the  Brilish Isles, thc north of France. Belgium, Holland. Denmark and the south of Sweden, lhc  cradle of llie greatest nations of lhe world, and is  therefore a climate well adapled lo the development of the human race under the most Favorable  condilions." In this bulletin lhe highest temperature al Enderbv for lhe vear 191'} is given at 95,  and Ihe lowest 27 below; 1911. highest, 9-1; lowest  'A below; 191;"). highest. 93; lowesl, 8 below. The  precipitation for 'these vears is given as follows:  191 .'5. rainfall, l.'Ul inches; snowfall, (vl.50  inches; 191-1. rainfall, 12.59 inches; snowfall,  I0._;"> inches; 1915, rainfall, 17.(12 inches; snowfall, -lo inches. The ollicial record at Enderby  has been kept by Mr. N. II. Kenny for several  vears.  Thc people of Canada have nol yet. begun to  realize what the trials of war-time are. But if  we mistake not, they will realize something of  these trials befoie the present winter is over,  and certainly before lhc next summer draws lo a  close.

PRESIDENT  WILSON  Next Monday the people of the United Slates  will vote either lo retain President Wilson or to  shelve him. Which will il be? We venture the  guess that he will bc re-elected. He has made  manv friends as president, and many enemies.  To some he has been thc savior of his country, to  others he has been weak and vascillating. In this  history repeals itself. President Lincoln at his  best was ridiculed and reviled as the 'rail splitter.'  "Manv seem lo be confident thai Wilson will be  re-elected," writes one whose vision is generally  clear. "I hope such will be thc ease. It docs not  seem possible lhal the people will allow any  change lo be made at lhis critical lime. Wilson  has proved himself the greatest man this country  has ever produced, and his work is only begun.

Better order some now %  %  Thursdaj', November 2,1916.-  THE ENDERBY PRESS AND WALKER'S WEEKLY  I-  t-  KEEP THE HEIFERS AT HOME  John  Bright, Canadian  Live Stock Commissioner, has issued a pamphlet warning our farmers against the killing oi' calves and urging them  lo finish thc feeders in Canada.   Thc farmers of  lhis district do not need  this warning or this  urging, if wc are to judge from the number of  calves which arc heing carried into thc winter, but  lhcy will appreciate what Mr. Bright has to say:  "Canada has no source of wealth more dependable, more profitable or more permanent lhan  that represented in her flocks and herds.    The  cows and heifers of this counlry arc thc potential  parent of a product lhat is as valuable lo lhc Dominion  and   to  the  Empire as   thc  traditional  golden egg.   As a war measure the British Gov-  . eminent has already imposed restrictions against  thc slaughter of calves and females.   It had been  fell that Canada did not need the adoption of  legislation as a practical measure to obtain this  end.   It must be pointed out, however, that wc  are continuously facing thc danger involved in  the loss of larger numbers of good beef calves, in  thc slaughter of very many brcedy and service  aolc heifers and cows, and in thc exportation annually from the country of thousands of stockers  and feeders.   This fact suggests a drain upon our  resources that; at thc present moment, the country cannot all'ord to ignore.    A hundred-pound  calf is a thousand-pound steer in embryo.    Kill,  thc calf and you net but a fifty or sixty-pound  delicacy for thc table of an epicure.   Kill the steer  and you provide five or six hundred pounds of  substantial beef for thc upbuilding of the manhood of Europe.    Canada cannot view without  serious concern the killing of its beef calves. The  country wants thc six hundred, hot the sixty.   It  .will bc counted against us if we fail to utilize thc  provender,   grass,   hay,   straw   and. grain   that  otherwise is annually uselessly lost on the western  prairies.   Such illustrates the difference between  waste and thrift."  The point raised by Mr. BriglU is a serious one,  no doubt. But few ranchers slaiigter their calves  because they wish to furnish a "sixty-pound delicacy for* thc tabic of an epicure." They get rid of  them, because thc price of feeding is more than  ^thcy can stand. Any rancher would prefer to  carry his calves over. He knows as well as the  stock commissioner that the country needs thc  six hundred pounds, not thc sixty. But thc high  cost of' feed is against him. This obstacle, ac-  _ cording to thc explanatory notes ori the pamphlet,  "'is to bc largely overcome. These notes state that  thc Banker's Association of Western Canada,  through their branch banks, will support and cooperate in this movement.. It is understood that  they/will assist-in financing it. The branch bank-  managers can furnish full information regarding  thc policy.  LOSING MILLIONS IN LOSS OF MANURE  While manure is only a by-product on thc farm  it is the farmers' greatest asset in thc maintenance of soil fertility. That it is not properly  valued and given thc care it deserves is strikingly  shown by the results of thc Agricullural Survey  ol' lhc Commission of Conservation in 1915.  Sevenly-five per ccnl of lhe 400 farmers visiled  were exercising no care lo pre ven I waste of manure, 22 per cent claimed lo bc exercising some  care, while less than 1 per cent claimed to bc exercising really thorough care of thc manure. Only  one and one-half per cent were saving all the  liquid manure, which contains more actual plant  food lhan lhc solid excrement. The annual loss  amounts to millions of dollars, and it can bc  readily seen that our system of farming is not  on a sound basis if this waste is allowed to continue. Any farmer who knows these facts but  takes no steps lo prevent thc waste, commits an  injustice against himself and his counlry, and  is preparing to leave to succeeding generations a  heritage, of poverty.  This loss can be prevented in several ways.  Now, at the beginning of the stabling season, prepare a supply of litter to absorb thc liquid manure. Store a quantity of leaves, dry sods or saw  dust for this purpose. Where circumstances'permit, it is a good plan to draw the manure to the  field as made. If it has to be piled, sec that it is  piled so as to prevent heating and leaching.  Mix the cow manure and horse manure together,  and keep thc pile compact and level on top. A  concrete lloor in the barn yard is a paying investment, although it may seem expensive. Have  tight floors, in the stable to prevent loss of the  liquid, and, if there is not enough litter to absorb  it, drain it off into a cement pit or some kind of  a receptacle from which it can bc occasionally  taken and spread upon the land., Don't waste it.  ROLL OF HONOR  FOR KING AND EMPIRE  OVERSEAS  ENDERBY  WAR WIDOWS AND ORPHANS  MEASURING HAY IN THE STACK  Estimating thc number of tons of hay in a  stack by measuring is often resorted to .when it  . is inconvenient to weigh it.   It is impossible to  give a rule for measuring hay'which is.entirely  satisfactory.   The following onc has often been  used, states Prof. E. G. Schafcr, of the Washington Experimental Station at Pullman, and approximates lhc correct weight: "Width plus oyer,  divided by four and squared, then multiplied by  the. length and divided by 512."    This rule assumes lhat thc cross section of a stack may bc  obtained by dividing thc width plus over measurement by four and squaring it..  Stacks vary so  much in shape that this cannol bc absolutely true  "wit'lrall-"stacksr^l:his"riilc-also=assuiiics-tliaMliGrc-  are 512 cubic feel in a Ion.   Thc length of time a  stack has been buill, lhc size of a stack or thc  amount it has settled, also the kind.of hay���������������������������all  influence lhc weight of a certain volume of hay.  This rule or any olher rules should not bc relied  upon unless it is impossible to weigh hay when  it is sold.  Problem���������������������������Assume thai a hay stack measures  18 feet wide, 20 1'cct over (distance from ground  on one side up over the slack and to the ground  on other side) and 30 feel long. The solution  would bc:  18 plus 20 equals 44  44 divided by 4 equals 11  11 squared equals 121  121 times 30 equals 3030 cubic feet in slack  3030 divided by 512 equals 7.09 tons.  What Canada needs, while the war is on as well  as al its close, is men. Thc places of thc thousands of thc Dominions sons who have gone overseas have been taken by foregners of onc kind or  another. These foreigners have no interest in  Canada other than that of earning the highest  wages possible. Wc shall nccd'our own sons to  develop Canada. Our resources arc not sufficiently, developed for us lo bc made thc dumping  ground for the widows and orphans of thc war.  ^This is the view taken by the London Church  Times, which in a recent number gives prominence to an article demanding careful ahd thoroughinvestigation of thc Salvation Army's  scheme for which sixty thousand pounds already  have been subscribed, for the importation of war  widows and orphans into thc dominions. This  paper adds that the dominions will resist any  wholesale dumping of helpless.,people who would  bc in precisely as bad a position at thc end of  their journey as they were at thc beginning.  Unless great care is taken, the article concludes,  thc plan will result in producing in thc. Dominions  the familiar features of helpless poverty, from  which, as yet, our great new lands arc free.  MORE ELABORATE THAN BEFORE  AND THE MOVIE MAN DIDN'T SEE IT  Driving an auto across the prairie at a sixty  mile clip," overtaking an engine running wild, and  driving the auto at the same speed the engine was  making, enabling the engineer to leap from the  motor car to the engine was lhe feat recently  performed by Miss Ada Taylor, 17-year-old  daughter of Mr. and Mrs. J. B. Taylor of Tenino,  Wash. The engineer and brakeman on a logging  train were making a Hying switch. The engineer  slowed down his train and threw the switch himself. In passing over the frog the jar threw the  throttle wide open and the locomotive took the  Northern Pacific main line with a full head of  steam. Both the engineer and brakeman started  in futile chase. Miss Taylor saw the wild engine  as it passed her home and saw the train men  trailing behind. Realizing the situation she  started after them, picked up the pursuing engineer and overtook the speeding locomotive.  Speaking of the second engagement of thc  great'picture play, "Thc Birth of a Nalion," at  Vancouver, thc Province says: "Thc Birth of a  Nation recently celebrated its one hundredth performance in thc city of Toronto. Thc nearest approach to this remarkable record was "Under thc  Bonnie _Briar_Bush,"_which _gayc ljoj;ly_cigliit pcr-  formances in a period covering six ycars.  "As differing from the commercial methods of  the ordinary theatrical manager, Mr. Courtney,  who this season is thc sponsor of this great production, has ideas which arc radically opposed.  With him il is not how much money can hc make,  but rather how much can he" spend in order to  give the public a flawless production and exactly  what hc promises them. The production is, if  anything, more elaborate lhan il was last season,  and the orchestra now wilh lhe production has  been pronounced by the Toronto critics lo bc lhc  finest every heard in Massey Hall in thai cily. Let  nothing interfere wilh your seeing this wonderful  performance." Il will bc seen al thc Enderby  Op ra House next Thursday evening, Nov. 9th.  HINTS FOR THE FARM  How about a silo for next year for those who  have none? When silo-filling, get the silage  tramped as solid as possible. It makes all lhc  difference. A silo will stive the hay-crop in a wet  season.   Clover needs to bc put up in a silo wet.  Do not pasture the clover-fields closely late this  fall.   Leave some winter protection.  Autumn grass pasture is often poor material  for milk production, being woody and unpalatable. Feed some hay or silage and grain. Do not  let the cows go down now in milk yield. Keep the  calves growing right along.  As a substitute for skim-milk, thc Provincial  Agricultural Journal suggests a mixture of hot  water*-; linsccd-oil meal 4 parts, wheat-germ meal  5 parts, and dried yeast 1 part. This mixture is  said lo give good results. Another good mixture  is oil-meal 4 parts and bean-meal 5 parls, previously mixed wilh boiling waler and given as a  warm drink. The change is made gradually  after three weeks of whole-milk feeding.  Robt. Airth, Corporal  S. Allcorn  Edgar L. Bawtree  Henry Arnold Bogert  Victor Bogert  Albert Butler  .1.
