Thc  proposition i.s being considered of  running a motor delivery, covering  the district between Mara and En-  clel-by and around Deep Creek by  way of Hullcar. This system, if it  could, be successfully carried out,  would solve a big problem for the  small producer���������������������������that of getting his  cream to market. It would - also  solve another problem which the  businessmen of Enderby cannot afford to ignore. If thc S. A. F. E. can  collect the cream from this district  it can also deliver merchandise  from the S. A. F. E. to the farmers'  door''���������������������������and at S. A. F. E. prices.

Wc can sympathize lhis week  with the Hedley Gazelle editor. Hc  tells of an exciting week there���������������������������just  such a week as lhis here, only we  didn't have the dog fight: "This has  not been a newsy week. In fact,  nothing of importance happened  except a dog light in which Toby  was lhe principal actor, assisted by  three bull terriers, two cockers, several collies, yaller dogs, the two  Sandys and Moses."  Messrs. Gregory & Ashton, who  operate the Armstrong opera house,  gave a movie performance in Enderby Tuesday. It was their intention to continue the performances  each Tuesday evening for the winter season, and more frequently if  the business warranted,it, but, owing to the many counter attractions billed for December, they have  concluded to postpone the commencement of their new service until after the holidays. They, intend  to give the Triangle and Famous  picture plays in Enderby, which are  recognized to be the best on the  market. These' are the most expensive of films, and in order to bc  shown at A profit must have a larger  patronage than that of the past year  Hon'.- H.

The same  dates set for, Victoria will apply  also-in the case of'the two seats in  Vancouver, as well as Nanaimo,  Dewdney, Greenwood and Cran-  biook. In Prince Rupert the dates  fixed are Saturday, Dec. 23, for  nomination and Saturday, Dec. 30,  for polling.  Have  you -tried   those  delicious  fresh chocolates'at Joe's?  and Walker.

Quaint and characteristic was Uic publication  oiVlhc=Ecnticton_Hcral(LJunior,���������������������������wliicli-appearcd  as an appetizer at each plate laid at thc supper  spread for the newspapermen at thc lncola Hotel  on their recent gathering there. Quaint, because  of thc color of its hair, and characteristic because  it had none. It was a masterpiece of genius, wit,  humor.dccollellc, and other things mcntionablc  and unmentionable. It did honor to the enterprise and esprit de corps .of Edilor McDougall  and his stall' of good fellows. After, reading the  Penticton Herald Junior there was not much left  lo bc said. Just to mention a few, here is something heavy from the Junior which goes to prove  all "that we have said:  "Walter Davidson, Ihc-doggcndcst fool in the  country, got stung Sunday night by a small girl."  "Uncle Josh wore the scat out of those line  pun Is reading the Bible."  "He was gored by an infatuated bull."  "For Sale���������������������������A good hen now laying eggs also  new potatoes, fence posts and russet apples."  "This is an editorial. What is more, it is serious editorial. It deals wiih the'.qucslipn of aviation. Not only lhc way lhc warring aviators  mount skyward, but also the manner in which  other tilings arc going up. For instance, the cost  of living, the price of paper and the skirts tlie  ladies are wearing. It is simply shocking. When  are we to see the end? This will be a serious  matter for all of us. We must endeavor lo keep  paper and printing prices, living costs, and other'  things, down."  ��������������������������� ^_^_���������������������������^���������������������������  Slowly, very .slowly, the world is beginning to  realize thc fallacy of private ownership*of public  utilities. Recently the Philadelphia Inquirer said  of railway conditions in the United Stales: "Wc  arc reaching an impasse in railroad -matters.  There are 38 states wilh 38 different commissions having to do with thc railroads.    On  top of the thirty-eight is the federal organization  known _as_. lhc_ inters.la le.. com merce__conim ission".  Here is confusion of a deadly nature.   The rail-  'roads would bc much belter /iff if they had a  J single boss.    To avoid  government  ownership  Uheic should be federal control.   Incorporate the  I roads.   Give the interstate commerce commission  J full power lo regulate rates and equal authority  to iix wages.    Send deputies lyClwccn managers  and   men   to   tlie   commission   i'or  adjustment.  Under   such   conditions   the   commission,   if "it  found that wages should hc increased, would be  able lo determine just how lhc iicreascd expense  of the roads should be met.    To lhis wc musl  come some I.mc, and why not now?"  A week or two ago, London, the metropolis of  the world, was posted, during the night, by huge  posters signed by thc head of the War Office, calling upon the people of England to pray for divine  help to the soldiers of Britain fighting at Hut  front. This request was significant enough, but  more significant is the first big thing to happen  since that call for prayer was issued. It is obvious  the Lord knows where to place his finger on the  Empire's weak spot, from thc general shaking  up. which wc sec coining.to the Government, and  particularly the war-council. Thc failures that  have come, thc blunders that have been made, thc  mistakes, missteps, the vacillating and wavering,  have all been on the part of thc men in control of  the Government and the War Office. The cost of  "muddling through," both in man power and in  'wealth,*-have been enormous; and thus far wc  have got nowhere. Not because of any lack of  fighting ability, nor because of any shortage in  war munitions or the ability lo procure war  munitions; not because we have lacked man  power in the field. But because"thc efforts of the  army have been misdirected. If this shaking-up  in the War Office comes in answer to prayer, then  let us have more of il.  Allies are resting on a sleeping vol-  cano. "It would cause no. surprise  here," says Draper, "if the next  step would be Ihe taking over of  thc reins of Ihe government of  Greece by the diplomatic representatives of the Allies."  !   PREMIER ASQUITH RESIGNS  London, Dec. 5.���������������������������Thc resignation  of Premier Asquith is officially announced.*--. If is understood that Mr.  Asquith will advise the King to entrust to Andrew Bonar Law the  formation of a new ministry.  Note of Warning Sounded-  After suggesting that the people  choose new rulers through a general election, the Manchester Gaur-  dian on.Dec.''lib, in commenting on  the cabinet situation, sounds this  note of warning: "There arc in fact  two crises, for the crisis in the Ministry is but a reflection of the crisis  in the war. The crisis in the war  amounts to this: That thc-progress  of events and succession of bitter  experiences have at last brought lo  the minds of most men the fact lhal  we arc not'winning the war, and  the further conviction that with the  piesent methods of waging war we  shall never win it."

T-IURSDAY, DECEMBER 7, 191G  SATURDAY HALF-HOLIDAY  At lhe con ven lion oi" newspapermen al Pcnliclon. last week, one oi" the questions of public  interest which came up for discussion was lhal'of  a Saturday half-holiday. It will bc remembered  that when'the Provincial Legislature passed a law  making a hair-holiday each week compulsory on  all retail merchanls, lhc question of day became  an important issue. At Vancouver and Victoria  a vole was taken, and thc advocates ol" Saturday  won al llie polls. Elsewhere in the Province no  day was set, bul lhe law requires one half day in  lhe week lo bc so observed unlil the approaching'  municipal elcclJons.arc held, when lhe question of  day is lo be voted upon.  The newspapermen from ali the towns in ihe  Okanagan ana the Interior represented at lhe convention, staled Unit in their town lhe mid-week  half-holiday has been a failure, as a holiday. The  stores, it is" Irue, have closed their doors, but lhe  mid-week afternoon oil' has been anything* but a  holiday. On the contrary, the mid-week closing-  has very largely killed the holiday spirit amongst  the people, 'lhe mid-week half-day off doing no  more lhan check business and disturb trade, al  the same lime making it impracticable lo hold the  old-lime Saturday afternoon sports which have  been such a harmonizing factor in lhe life of all  "ilTX^TtitfmlTiTrtiiJ^iriTTfst-NTai's. "'  The same results, il seems, have been obtained  in each of the towns of the Interior where the  mid-week half-day oil' has been.observed.. Nol a  single lown reported lhe mid-week half-holiday  satisfactory. II is now generally admitted lhal to  attempt lo'make a compulsory hall'-holiday on a  day of the week which il is impossible for the  public schools,  -Uons-lo-obseiw-e.  only is il attempting the impossible, but il deprives lhe public of the right lo observe lhe half-  holiday on a day of the week which can be made  a holiday. To argue thai a mid-week holiday is  more convenient I'or the retail merchanls is lo put  the mark of class-legislation on the face of lhe  half-holiday law. There is the larger question at  slake- lluil of the harmonizing influence of the  holidav and the holiday spirit, without which any  holiday legislation musl linally lesull in failure,  as well as the disruption of business conditions.  The spirit of lhe newspapermen of the convention, as representatives of the towns from which  lliev came was strongly against the mid-week  hall'-dav oil" and in Favor of Saturday.  not been an exceptionally,dry one, thousands of  dollars' worlh of produce would have been lost  in tiie Kelowna district through thc impossibility  of securing labor lo harvest it. II was decided'to  communicate with one of the larger coast cities  suggesting the expediency of passing a resolution  in favor of a form of conscription which would  raise the required number of men for the army  in those districts where the absence of such men  would not seriously affect the local supply of  labor or lhe business ol" lhe country at large. The  a Hi lude of the Kelowna Council on the question is  similar lo lhe sland taken by the Summerland  council.  SLAUGHTER OF THE INNOCENTS  "Do you Ihink war will over be abolished?"  "Think!   I know.   Why, sir, wc sire going lo iibolish  wjir if il lakes every lasl man on the face of lhe earth."  Often a profound Irulh is spoken in jest. And  lhal is what the funny man in .ludge did when he  wrote these lines. .The greatest sull'erers in lhc  European war have been the small nations. Five  of them���������������������������Belgium, Serbia, Montenegro, Albania,  and Poland���������������������������have been almost totally wiped oul.  Two of them���������������������������Rumania and Greece���������������������������are on thc  point of destruction. Others���������������������������Holland, Switzerland, Denmark, and, lo a lesser extent, Sweden  and Norway, are in constant peril. Thc cataclysm,  Vlcr 4 wo ycars and a ban, is slill raging unabated, with no definite sign of peace. But peace  must come, seme lime, if i'or no olher reason than  universal exhaustion.  We al! talk glibly of fighting "lo thc end." End  of whal? End of our man power and our financial resources? End of Germany, or England, or  France, or of ali combined? End of what? At  the same lime wc hear lhc leaders of all governments af war telling about certain conditions under which lhcy are prepared lo talk peace. The  Central Powers are prepared to quit fighting provided lhe Entente Allies will.replace the shipping  lost to Germany and Austria through the war,  give back those African colonics, and agree'nol to  modify lhcir commercial policy in any manner  hurtful to thc Central Powers. Similarly, il" Germany should offer lo England, to Belgium, and to  France, and to Italy, the land.il has laken from  ihem, Lhc ships that have been sunk, pay a reasonable indemnity for lhe men who lost lhcir lives  and for thc men diverted from productive To destructive occupations, and give some guarantee  against anolhcr outbreak, England and the rest  would also bc willing to quit.  Now each side wan Is the olher to pay thc costs  of (hc war, and neither is prepared lo do;' so. All  arc sick of lighting and The awful carnage, hut  none can afford to admit il, or to agree lo the  terms of the olher. However, each side is submit-  ing terms���������������������������terms, of course, which thc other  will not accept, bul slill terms. .When the war  started, it will bc remembered, the enemy was for  looting London and wc were for burning Berlin.  Bul this kind of talk has entirely disappeared,  which indidales that there is a slow  sanity on bolh sides.'  returning  to  Are you going to-do any  Building- or Repairing"  This Season?

Glen gives a very interesting account of his experiences in lhc late raid by British  airmen on Obcndoy, thc home of-the Mauser rifle,  which lies over 100 miles across thc Rhine, over  the Vosgcs and thc Black Forest. A brief account  of this undertaking was chronicled in thc press  through thc French communique at thc lime thc  raid was pulled oil.  Lieutenant Glenn says il is a hearf-brcaking  country to fly over on account of no landing  grounds. "Everything mountain sides and heavy  Forest beneath you all thc way over and home  again." This was the biggest raid of thc war,  counting, the number of machines engaged and  distance covered.  "We Icll lhc ground in flights of five bombers  and two fighting machines to a flight at noon. As  each flight attained its height of 2000 feet it  formed into a horizontal "v", similar to thc formation of a flock of gcccc in flight, thc front machine being a thousand feet below the-two rear  fighting machines, and the others from left lo  right in direction of flight _50 feet or more above  tlie preceding machine. This is to protect each  other from attacking machines, the rear machines  being able on account of their height to dive on  thc hostile machine' attacking, and also to give  greater immunity from shell fire. You sec a shell  fused to burst a I thc altitude of the front machine  "would not touch any of thc others.  "We crossed the lines at a great altitude and  were shelled heavily wilh shrapnel and high explosives, 'H.E.' as they arc called, but continued  on our way untouched, but scared stiff. There  were two French squadrons ahead of us. These  were passed over at the Rhine, where we were  again shelled heavily. I thoroughly enjoyed seeing these squadrons being shelled to blazes, as  they were lower than avc ancl drew most of the  'A.-A.' fire. A Fokkcr nosed alongside, but eased  off and left us for the easier meat of Colon. After  leaving the Rhine avc crossed the Black Forest  unmolested either by hostile machines or 'Archies'  and, seeing our objective several miles ahead  at'fuslcd our sights and when thc signal light  shot up from the leading machines avc formed  into a line and dived until avc \yerc just clear of  the factory chimneys, everyone releasing their  bombs oyer the biggest of them. Wc just unloaded about five tons of bombs on the place, ahd  'if. looked-quite sickly as avc galloped away to thc  "Give my kind regards to thc Enderby people."  In a later letter Lieutenant Glenn says, "Our  commander had an autograph letter from General  J_lr'rc yesterday congratulating lhc wing on the  organization and the excellent work we have done  since leaving our base." Hc says lhcy have pretty  avcII covered thc entire line in*France from Verdun lo Switzcrland5/and lhcy had somewhat to do  wilh the French offensive that resulted in thc  capture of the Duonfont and Vaux forls.  "This is real war up at lhis end of the line," says  hc. "Thc thunder of thc guns just naturally keeps  the windows in the cabin rattling day* and night.  The only lime wc iose it is while we arc in Hie air  aiid the motors dcao.cn thc noise."  Lieutenant Glenn concludes: "We arc the only  Brilish airmen altacned to thc French army, so  anything reported in the French official com:/iunique regarding thc *\\ork of thc airmen belongs  lo us."

Il Avill bc cither tollicr  or which.  Canada doesn't know much about running a  war. How should wc? But wc have the men who  can fight when lhcy have to. There is much avc  shall have to. learn aboul it if the war is to go on  another j'car or two. While avc arc paying our  boys at thc front higher wages than any other  soldiers in the field, and our Patriotic and other  Funds,arc also contributing millions of dollars to  buy comforts and smokes lor thc men and to aid  in providing for the dependents left behind, avc  arc told by statistics of the Vienna postoffice for  the first hvo ycars of the war lhat nearly $100,-  000,000 has been sent from soldiers al thc front  lo their families at home���������������������������savings from their  wages. This is due, il is claimed, to thc fact that  thc mcn-ln thc field arc so'well supplied with th_  necessary things to cat, drink and smoke that  they have no use ior money.  All of which may have a lesson for us, or it may  not. The Austrian is probably as poorly paid as  any soldier on earth. In peace times hc gets six  cents per day. In Avar time, he probably gets  t\yice this amount. If thc postoffice statistics here  given arc correct it goes to show that men the  world over arc much thc same. In-the heart of  every soldier there is a warm spot for the place  he calls home and for those dependent upon him.  If avcycould know, what our Canadian boys liavc  done in the two ycars they'have been away, the  figures, on a proportionate basis,'would eclipse  those leported. above.   v   . -f \,      *     "      .;... /  '- ^.  ���������������������������:.'"''   -OUR-TOWN    /    ������������������������������������������������������*.:".' *; - *'v;  If you meet a.man Avho is,down in the1 mouth,  \yho thinks thatdiis town is all .wrong; just take  him aside or out for a ride, and hand :'him,'this  quaint little song:     Thcrcare fancier towns than  our oAvn lillle'town; there are toAvns that" arc  bigger lhan this, and thc people who- live in thc  .tinier:town all thc cily amusements miss.

Tell your wife about It"  The Rev. Rob. Jones, the evangelist, says lhat "up lo thc present*  period attention usually wa** attracted to a Avoman's head, now it is  attracted lo'her feet." The Rev.  Bob failed to say whether.it Avas  the size or what.  j  A New "York philosopher is credited Avith saying that "if the men  had to do the washing for a Aveek  there would be more washing machines than automobiles."  And now the mayor of Alton, 111.,  has notified thc Avomen and girls of  that town that lhcy must not wear  shadow draperies or so-called "sce-t  more" gowns. It is hard for some  of these ol-fashioned mayors of  back-woods toAvns to see any beauty  in shadow-forms, or lo recognize  Avhal this era of woman's rights on  the globe has in store for us.
