Mr. and Mrs. Gus Schultz enjoyed a visit last week from a  brother and sister, Mr. Fred and  Mrs. J. Schultz, of Alberta, who fully appreciated the excellence of our  Okanagan climate, but clung to the  prairie as a place to farm.

'  To- tell a ncAvspapcrman whose  opinion you do not share and  whose criticism you don't like, lo  "stop my paper" and go where they  don't burn coal, is about thc rudest  crudest Avay of disposing of him.

At least one-half the  "funds" which are raised arc raised  in competition to the other lialf and  to offset the other half's Avork.

Hassard knows the seed condilions of  l)io Valley about as well as any man can. lie is  con versa nl wilh lhc general grain condilions ol*  lhe counlry as well. And his warning al this  lime should nol bc ignored. Hc says lhere are  many small growers of grain, avIio have only a  lew tontl. or even less, oi' wliat.be says is lhc besl  seed Avhcat in lhc land���������������������������wheal grown on virgin  soil���������������������������and lhcy arc feeding il lo lhc chickens or lhc  hogs. This, hc believes, should be checked a I  once. He thinks llie Government ought to put a  seed inspector in the Valley lo take an inventory  of the stock of seed Avhcat lo bc found hen:. The  good wheat should bc bought from the fanners  or an exchange made with them, giving them feed  wheal lor Ihe seed wheal now being led aAvay.  Mr. Hassard believes there Avill bc lillle or no  seed wheal grown in lhc Valley next season. He  says, while il is yel loo early to make the definite  statement, there is every indication thai lhc fall  sown Avheal will nol come up, OAving to thc long  dry spell TolloAving sowing. He knows of only a  few acres ol* fall wheal which made any start before lhe snow came. Hundreds of acres were pul  in, bul there was nol thc first sign of groAvlh up lo  the coming of llie siioav.  offensive against the Allied armies a I Salonica.  Bolh these reports point to the culmination of  the greatest Germanic plan conceived since the  war began. II", as Petrograd points out, the enemy  fails to establish himself on the Black Sea, he Avill  have no base there. But is it reasonable to suppose  the Teutons will neglect this important part of tlie  general plan? And the danger lo lhc troops at  Salonica, now that* Rumania has been cut in two,  is only lhal predicted by Ash mead Bartlelt in lhe  London Times when the troops first occupied that  point. Hc pointed out in November lasl that any  advance of lhe Allied armies from Salonica Avould  imperil lhcir long line of communications Avhich  would bc threatened on cither side by a hostile  population.  II* lhc Allies can break the hold of the enemy on  Rumania, and especially Dobrudja, Ihey Avill put  an end to his game in lhc Balkans. Bul Russia  and her allies are placed in a dilliciill position.  If, wilh Rumania prepared up lo the hilt, and, in  concert with Russia and lhc Allied command,  choosing her own lime and place lo gel inlo lhc  war, lhcy still Avere unable lo keep thc opposing  forces out of lhcir country, by Avhal method of  reasoning or warfare do they hope to throw these  orccs oul after lhcy have established themselves  there? It would be a glorious day for thc Allies  if lhcy could retake Rumania and break through  liic enemy lines so as lo reach the railway running  to Constantinople. Thc line across Rumania closes  Ihe door to the Easl . The Allies, al Salonica, arc  sitting on. the keyhole. Silling on lhe keyhole,  however, will not open the door. This Avill be  the next great move. Success here i'or thc Allies  will mean final victory. Defeat at Salonica for  the Allies would mean the realization of lhe  Central Powers' fondest dream.  FARMER FEELS HE'S VICTIM OF MONOPOLY  Local farmers Avho have sold beef callle this  season declare lhcy" have received less I'or their  callle lhan ever before. At the same lime lhc retail price of beet" al lhe butcher shops is much  higher than.ever before. To be exact," thc farmer  is'offered 9 cents or 9 1-2 on the hoof, Avhile the  price of beef on the block is from 22c to 28c. It  is difficult for thc man having beef callle for sale  lo find a market. There arc various buyers in  thc field, but all seem to bc buying for the same  firm���������������������������P. Burns & Co. One local rancher recently  refused lo sell his beef steers at the only price  quoted locally, and lhoughl.be would lake bis  callle to Vancouver. Hc did so, wilh' the result  lhat at Vancouver hc had to scllto the same firm  lie should have sold lo here, and received a much  less price than hc was offered locally, and had io  pay thc freight in addition. He found the experiment very costly.  In pasl years!, the same beef steers Avhich are  bringing $45 and $50 Avould have sold for $65 and  $75. And yel, the retail price of beef on thc block  has adA-anccd from 5c lo 10c per pound, according lo choice of cuts. This condition, avc understand, prevails throughout British Columbia.

Anolher report from London says  Ihe enemy is even now turning the Rumanian  viclorv into a means ol" enabling him lo lake the  MAKING CANADA'S RESOURCES KNOWN  Canadians,when lhcy go abroad invariably come  home wilh a higher appreciation of Canada. This  is partly due, no 'rioubl, to the real advantages  Canada oilers, but il" may also be attributed in  part to thc excellent representation of Canadian  things that has been made in foreign countries.  Tbe'Dominion Governmenl, for instance, has the  reputation..ol'__ showing collections .of...Canadian  .iroducls al Ihe leading international fairs, which  'for excellence of products exhibited and artistic  presentation are rarely equalled by any oilier  country.  The Canadian Pacific Railway also has carried  on a very important work in making Canada's resources known in olher lands and particularly  in Ihe neighboring republic. Nol only at such international events as the Panama-Pacific Expositions a year ago, but also in exhibits of a more  local nature, the C. P. B. has lost no opportunity  of representing Canadian resources in a manner  of which the citizens of this country may well be  proud. 1 landsome displays ol" Canada's resources  including minerals and fruits, but more particularly the products of lhe Western farms, arc  mai'nlained al a number of the chief centres  throughout the United Stales, and never fail to  excite" favorable comment.  One of lhe exhibits recently established is a I  lhe Bureau of Industry and Agriculture conducted  by the Chicago Herald on lhe second-floor of the  Ashland block, Chicago. Al lhis bureau are exhibits showing lhc resources of many of lhe  slates of lhc Uniled Slates and also of Canada.  Canadians visiting Chicago arc invited to call at  lhc bureau and make themselves known lo thc attendant in charge of lhe C. P. R. exhibit there. All  our readers having friends in the South who are  likely to visit Chicago during thc -winter can do  Iheir counlry a good turn by suggesting lhat these  friends lake advantage of their visit there losce  for themselves what Canada has lo offer. The  bureau is open every week-day and motion pic-  lures illustrating lhe different districts represented, are run' in a special feature hall. No  charge is made I'or admittance either lo the exhibit or lo lhe motion picture hall.  Sail will remove lea stains from delicate china  cups.  FRESH  FISH  EVERY   THURSDAY  GEO. R.

We read of vast undertakings requiring half a million men here and  anolhcr half million there; we are told of Serbia,  Belgium, Rumania and Poland being overrun,  and wc, in thc West, so accustomed lo great distances, do not understand how it can bc accomplished so rapidly. A little thought and study,  however, will make it all very simple.  It is difficult for us to realize that all of Europe  engaged in thc Great War, if wc except Russia,  could bc dropped.into Canada and we would still  have 1,128,984 square miles of territory unoccupied. Russia embraces some eight million square  miles of territory, or nearly one-sixth of thc  earth's surface, and must bc left out of our calculations, but all thc other nations at war are  mere townships in area as compared wilh Canada.  Wc could, in fact, take England and Wales, Belgium, Serbia, Rumania, Italy, Poland, Bulgaria,  Albania and Montenegro and tuck them away in  our own little Province of British Columbia alone  and still have eight or ten thousand square miles  of territory left to bc occupied.   ,,  The total area of Canada is 3,745,574 square  miles,  and   that  of  British   Columbia  375,000  square miles, in round numbers. ^ The total area  of-the kingdoms and empires named here is 369,  '414 square miles, divided as follows  Sq. miles  England  and Wales.  58.324  Italv 110,000  Poland      49,000  Belgium    ;   11,000  Serbia    .*. 33,890  Bulgaria    '   37,000  Albania      15,000  Montenegro    : 3,600  Rumania  51,000  Population  36,000,000  37,000,000  9,500,000  6,000,000  3,000,000  5,000,000  1,000,000  250,000  7,000,000  309,414 104,750,000  It is worth remembering that, while British  , Columbia's 375,000 square miles of territory is  ' occupied by 380,000 population, or, roughly,.one  person'to the square mile, thc same area iri fighting Europe is occupied���������������������������or was occupied when  thc war started���������������������������by 104,750,000, something short  of 300 persons to thc square mile. Obviously  there is room for growth-in British Columbia.  As before stated, ^Canada's area is 3,745;000  - square miles, and her, population say seven. riiil-  ,r lions���������������������������two persons to the square mile.

It is not thc scattering of armies over vast territory, but rather thc stretching of fighting lines  across small countries, compactly built and thickly populated. For the most part thc fighting lines  are not far removed from cities and towns, and  even within the "rest" zone of the armies, there  must bc carried on thc usual agricultural opcra-  tions, manufacturing, etc. _Thc moyemen t. of .vast  numbers of men irom one point to another, and  even from onc empire to another, is like moving  from the interior of British Columbia to thc coast.  Thc fact that Canada alone covers more territory than thc combined area of all thc fighting  nations except Russia, ought to make us of  Canada form a new conception of thc importance  and magnitude of this Dominion of ours. '   PREMIER ASQUITH STEPS DOWN  Mr. Asqiiilh passed from the premiership of  England last week after a longer continuous  period in oflice than any of his predecessors since  thc great Reform Bill. He became premier in  April, 1908, and continued his arduous task  through the storms of peace and war for nearly  eight ycars and eight months. Lord Salisbury's  lasl premiership, from 1895 to 1902, extended  over seven years and a few days. Melbourne,  Palmcrston and Disraeli had. periods in ollice over  six ycars: Gladstone was I'onr times first minister  and held ollice on two occasions for more than  five ycars, but hc did not approach Mr. Asquith's  eight-year period. Before Reform Bill days, lhere  were long periods under onc premier. Lord  Liverpool, for instance, was continuously in ollice  1812 to 1827.  At sixty-four Mr .Asquith is still a youth as compared with British prime ministers of thc past.  Gladstone was in his eighty-third year when, for  thc fourth lime, hc assumed the office of premier.  Lord Palmcrston was seventy when he assumed  thc olTicc and was eighty-one,, when hc retired.  Disraeli, Campbcll-Banncrman and Lord Grey all  assumed the cares of state when well past Mr.  Asquith's present age.  Mr. David Lloyd George has been entrusted by  thc King to form a new government. It is said  thc first important step thc new premier will undertake will be thc settlement of the Irish question, it being reported from London that hc will  give Home Rule to Ireland along llie lines settled  upon by him some months ago and afterwards  repudiated by thc government. Hc wants to have  this settled before Christmas.'  LOGGING TOOLS  Boys' Sleds, Skates and Hockey Sticks  are now the seasonable goods in our line. We carry the best goods  and the largest stock.

Without agents or  commissions, quietly and unostentatiously, the  department, under the direction of Hon. Martin  Burrell, has made these enormous purchases and  has saved hundreds of thousands of dollars for  Great Britain and put millions in thc pockets of  the farmers of Canada.  The following is a summary of. the purchases  of hay, oats and flour to October.last past:  Tons'-"'-        Bushels < Bags   '  Hav    370,891    '    *     ���������������������������-V     ".

For thc inland, movement of-the  baled hay, oats.and flour'it has required about  60,000 railway cars, or equal to. 1,500 trains of 40  cars each. In'thc purchase of these supplies there  has been expended to October 1, the sum of $51,-  362,282.  "THE GIRL HE COULDN'T BUY"  W. B. Sherman's production of "The Girl Hc  Couldn't Buy," which comes to the Enderby  Opera House next Wednesday evening, Dec. 20th,  will bring with it one of the best recommendations it could possibly secure. It has the approval  of thc audiences from every town in which it has  played. This company has played all thc towns  of thc Northwest, and is on its way to Vancouver  wherc it will play Christmas week. Thc play,  "Thc Girl He Couldn't Buy," owes its success to  the many novel scenes which arc introduced. The  spectator is kept between laughter and tears during the whole period thc play is in progress. It  cnja^lcayjng the audicncc__with thc.fecling.that;  they have witnessed something far above the  usual standard of theatrical entertainments.  Salt and water, warm, will stop chilblains  from itching.  Salt and water makes an excellent throat  gargle.   Tell your wife about it  ' The total population of the states  at war, the non-Arian elements of  Russia excepted, is roughly 373,-  000,000, of which 188,000,000 arc  women and 185,000,000 men.  In normal times Europe had an  excess of three million females, of  which number a third would bc  marriageable.  To this million of women who  in normal times could find no husband for the reason that nature,  while ensuring an excess in the  birth of males, permits more of  them to die in infancy, will be adr  ded at least eight millions whom  death on the battlefields or incapacitating wounds has also de-  privated of mates.  Europe, therefore is face lo face  with the question of how these nine  million women are to be cared for.  At the conclusion of the Thirty  Years' War, similar conditions prevailed. It was met in many Central European states by making polygamy legal. When the proportion  of males and females had been readjusted by the coming of later  generations these laws_ were repealed.  Several writers point out that it  will take two generations before  the equilibrium is re-established.  The tendency of men to marry women younger than they themselves  are is held responsible for this.  Usually the man marries a wo  man from three to five ycars his  junior, and sonic authorities fear  that greater choice, which the excess of women will give, will decidedly foster this inclination, so  that only thc girl who today is 12  to 13 years old can hope to bc thc  subject of competition among men  which her mother was.  Should flic war continue another  year or two and so cause the loss of  many young men who are now 15  to 16 ycars old the problem will be  much harder to meet. In that case  the excess of women over men  would be no less than eleven millions, so that for every man of  marriageable age, during thc next  ten years, there would be almost  two single women.

Things seem to be going from bad  lo worse in Greece.   Some days ago  it was inlimaled from London that  lhe Entente commander al Salonica  would take harsh measures and lhal  King   Constanline   would   probably  bc dethroned  and  M. Veni/elos be  put in charge of Ihe Greek government.    This was lo happen wilhin  a week.   According to the latest report from Greece, orders have been  given by Ihe Greek government for  lhe  mobilization  of lhe army, and  apparently all orders of the Entente  commanders are being disregarded.  King Tino  seems  to  have "braved  up"   considerable    since   Rumania  fell.  The Greek government seems to  have taken out of the hands", of the  Enlcr.le commanders thc 'censorship over cable dispatches; the  British and French marines have  been withdrawn lo the Piraceus  Island and the Venizelisl parly is  being relentlessly punished by Ihe  Royalists. This condition is having  an inevitable effect on" thc Serbian  campaign, as Ihe Allies cannol move  forward .with Ihe menace of the  Greek army behind Ihem.
