Hollby were delighted to have  the pleasure of a handshake this  week on his visit to Enderby from  the coast. Mr. Holtby left Enderby  some six ycars ago, shortly after  erecting the frame building now occupied by the McPhcrson furniture  store. He went to Vancouver and  there "got in" on thc crest'of the  boom���������������������������and "got out" fairly well.

HIGH SCHOOL EXAMINATIONS  THE   WOMAN   VOTERS'  LEAGUE  On Saturday, the 30th December,  an event look place in Enderby  which is likely to have important  suits. This was the inaugural meeting of the Woman Voters' League,  which was held in thc K. of P. Hall,  and at which, despite the inclemency of'the weather, there,was a  good attendance.  Thc proceedings were opened by  =a"specclv="fronfV\Irs7=iR()bsonrywho  was in thc. chair, explaining that  the object of thc League was., to enable women lo use their vote intelligently. This speech was very well  received.  The meeting became more and  more enthusiastic as Miss Seymour  further elucidated thc position, and  after a short interval, during which  refrcshmenls were supplied to iheir  guests by lhe Woman's Club, acting  through a committee composed of  Mrs. "Winter, Miss Forster'and Mrs.  Reeves, a 'splendid response was  made to the appeal for membership.  Every woman in lhe room joined  the League. The Hon. Treasurer,  Mrs. Strickland, being practically  inundated wiih subscriptions from  the new members, who were apparently eager to make their position quite secure by this means.  After passing the rules, lhc following ladies were elected as officers of the League: President, Mrs.,  E. P. Robson; vice-presidents,,Mrs.  Winter and Mrs. G. Lawes; lion,  organizing secretary,'Miss I. M. Seymour; hon. treas., Mrs. Strickland.  SATURDAY  FAVORED  Writing from Vernon, Mr. Ball, of  thc News, says: "I have been feeling about in reference lo the half-  holiday, and I was rather surprised  to find that there .seems lo he a preponderance of feeling in favor of  Saturday, and this among the merchanls themselves. Il looks as  though Saturday will be the day  here, and if this is the case, with  Enderby favorable, and Armstrong  willing to fall into lire, Penticton  in favor of Saturday, should bring  the olher towns into line for Saturday."   .  The examination was -held in  each class in ten subjects with a  maximum of 1000 marks obtainable'.  The names arc given in the order of  merit with the average percentage  obtained by each pupil:  Senior Matriculation: Olga Carlson, 80.  Junior Matriculation: Douglas  Dow, 89; Louise Paradis, 85; Thos.  McKay, 81; Caroline Paradis, 64;  Edna McMahon, 03; John McPherson, 59; David Mowat, 59; Wm.  Faulkner, 55; James McMahon, 40.  For various reasons thc following  pupils in the Matriculation class did  not write on all the subjects assigned. Their percentage in the  partial'examination is shown below.  Dorothy Dunwoodie, 87; Kate  Nichol,'74; Elmer Grant, 73; Royal  Murdoch, 60; Agnes Carlson, 55.  A percentage of not less than" 50,  in-each subject is required to-pass.  The following failed in one or m'ore  subjects:; Kate Nichol, John McPherson, Royal Murdoch, Agnes  Carlson, Caroline. Paradis, David  Mowat, W. Faulkner, Jas. McMahon.  ."Advanced Tumor"' Class':".'

Doglad Cameron, writing on four of  the ten subjects, obtained 68.  Two. pupils, Ellen McPherson,  Matric, and Thomas Cameron, preliminary, missed the whole of the  examination owing to sickness.  Thc University of B.C. offers two  prizes, one of 5150, open to any student in the Province, the other of  6100 limited to matriculants in the  Yale Dislrict. It will be remembered lhat Stuart Glen carried off  this latter prize to lhe credit of En-  derby HiglTSclTooriast June. J am  glad lo bc able to say lhat there arc  several students in lhc present matriculation class, the chaiaciur of  whose work is such i\s lo give lull  warrant for the expectation lhal  this prize will come again to this  High School next June. At tho same  time a perusal of the above report  in some instances may be vi.-r> disappointing to both parents and pupils. There are various contrilnihifg  causes lo low class standing in  High School..I would like to locution a few of these.  First, il may be slated in general  lhat the wide difference in rank  docs not indicate a corresponding  degree of difference in ability. In  every case lhc failure of a High  School pupil to make a fair showing in his work can be traced directly to some one or all of the following causes: (1) Lack of systematic .preparation of each day's  studies at home. In the High School  period not less than three hours  each evening should be devoted lo  this work. Parents who are anxious  for the success of lhcir children's  work should sec to il that this lime  i.s faithfully spent each evening.  (2) Irregular attendance. One day  a week docs not appear to be very  much to miss, hut il means a loss or  actually 20 per cent of the time for  that pupil himself, while at the  same lime thc class work is partially-disorganized and the work of the  teacher hampered. That pupil is  rare who tries to make up for the  lost lime by extra work during the  remaining four days of the week.  standing is very poor indeed, lost 9  per cent of the time in October, 23  per cent in November, and 9 per  cenl in December. Not even a pupil  of exceptional ability could do his  best wilh an attendance record like  that. Nothing but the gravest excuse should permit a pupil to remain away from school a day during the term. Apart from the injury  done to the pupil himself there is  a real injury of far-reaching extent  done to the school as a whole.  (3) Unseasonable recreation, both  as to time chosen for such, and as  to the amount of time occupied. A  certain amount of vigorous health  ful exercise is needed by every pupil each day. But when that exercise takes a form that consunes the  hours that should be spent in, careful preparation of .lie not day's  work an irreparable injury is done  lo thc pupil in on-; ln*ief,sc:ispn. It  is seldom if ever ihal "recovery is  made froln* it. {���������������������������[)' t name as a  further cause of student failure, the  lack of any specific and definite attempt on-the part of some pupils to  cultivate, those positive qualities of  mind, such as. memory, perception,  judgment ..and- -.alertness,, .without  which Jno student'can hope ei flier to  succeed in his studies or to secure  a place iri life .along side keen-  eyed, quick-witted, brilliant competitors.  These are a few of'the many reasons for failure in student life. It is  a mistake lo suppose thai any pupil  is so naturally bright thaL diligent  application in his case i.s not so  necessary as in others. The pro-  puclion of one's best is only possible through a rigid determination  lo adhere to the underlying principles of true success. And we may  add, ''nothing succeeds like success," and nothing pays better than  hard work and diligent application  when il comes lo training a mind  that truly "a kingdom is."  I wish to lake this opportunity of  inviting on the pari of all interested  in lhc work of lhe school, the most  Jicar_ly_.Jj.ileJIigonL,and . sympathetic  co-operation   in   the   work   of   ihe  school   during lhe next term, in order that we may finish the year lo  (lie satisfaction,"   delight,   pleasure  and profit of all.  Yours truly, D. J. Wi-i.sir,.  Principal.  THE ODDS WERE TOO GREAT  The particularly sad ending of a  hard struggle lo live was witnessed  in Enderby New Years day. Last  week Mr. and Mrs. Jas. Cavers arrived from Bull'alo, N.Y., where a  week before Ihey parted with their  lhree little children and, started  across the continent in a vain hope  lhat the change might benefit the  health of Ihe mother, who was rapidly sinking beneath Ihe tubercular  strain. Bul it was loo laic���������������������������months  too laic. She was on the verge of  death on arrival here, and lived but  a.few days. The remains were interred in the Enderby cemetery- on  Wednesday. Thc deceased lady  was a sisler of Mrs. Geo. Rands, and  the husband a brother of Mr. Wm.  Cavers, of Enderby, who have the  sympathy of the community in their  bereavement.

Skyrme Bros., of  Grindrod, lhe past week closed a  ileal for lhc balance of lhe valuable  Ilazelmerc Ranch. Their first purchase was 100 acres, which was  taken over five ycars ago. Thc  balance of lhe farm���������������������������122-acres���������������������������  was leased. The past week the purchase of Ibis portion was made, including the house, barns and other  buildings. These.enterprising men  now own the entire ranch of 222 Yi  acres, every foot of it the very best  of lan/l, and most of il now under  crop or in pasture.  Here i.s an object lesson, showing  whal hard work and head work can  do in a few years. Five years ago  when lhc Skyrme Bros, purchased  the first 100 acres, they were practically moneyless after making lhe  Initial payment. -They started to  work with one team of horses, a  cow, and only Ihe most necessary  farm implements. They have since  paid, for lhe 100 acres; have added  implements; have now 50 head of  cattle, fifteen head of horses, pigs,  sheep, and hundreds of fowl. Whal  has been done lhc pasl five years i.s  only an inkling of whal they hope  to do Ihe next five ycars. The  Hazelmere is one of the show farms  of the Fnderby district, and in the  hands of these experienced farmers  has rapidly developed in production and importance.  The regular meeting of the Board  of Trade will be held .in the City  Hall. Friday, Jan. 5th, at 8 p.m. A  full attendance i.s desired.

THURSDAY., JANUARY 4, 191.7  NATIONAL SERVICE COMING  This is National Service week in Canada. The  purpose of the Government is to gather, as far as  possible, a correct idea of the manpower of the  Dominion, not For military purposes, but for lhc  purpose of forming an estimate of lhc productive  possibilities of thc counlry. When thc European  war began much was said about'nations fi gluing  for "ideals and principles of which men of earlier  times could have no conception," bul as the war  has dragged on it has reverted more and more lo  the primitive, until loday, as of old, the principal  concern of all thc nations at war is food. German)' i.s fighting for food, we are told, aud actual  starvation has claimed thousands, if nol millions  of lives, in Poland, Serbia. Belgium, Armenia, and  olher part of Russia and Auslria-llungary. Hunger now threatens England and France. And this  is not all, for neutral nations, we are told, arc  feeling the pinch, and even America, the commissariat of the world, is beginning lo realize lhal  it cannol feed lhe world and eal as usual.  Canada cannot escape. We must bear the portion of lhe burden which is ours to bear. We can  not bear it if we are not organized. Our resources are greal, bul these resources must be mobilized if we are lo make the most out of Ihem. Like  every olher ellicient instrument, discipline can be  -Lised.lo promote wliat.wc-Call.evil. ..Bul.lhal is.no  armies at  of the  Dominion musl do likewise, and thus cut qui  the element of profit which has so seriously interfered wilh lhc successful development of our  industries since the pressure has become so greal.  According lo lhe Fcdcralionisl. lhe labor paper  of Vancouver, a number of trades and labor  councils and other bodies in Canada have already  publicly registered their disapproval of lhe proposed National Service scheme of the Borden  government, unless the conscription of industry  and wealth be the slops lo be first taken. '"It is  lime," says lhe Fcdcralionisl, "for lhc labor of  the Dominion lo lei ils voice be heard in demanding thai Canada shall at once lake lhe same steps  lhaf have been taken in lhe Motherland, lo bring  lhe industries lhal are necessary to lhc successful  prosecution of lhc war, directly under lhc hand  and control of the nalion, and thai all profit bc cut  out of industrial operations, lo lhc end lhat all  lhc power of industry may be. converted lo lhe  purpose of backing up and making secure lhc  armies of the Empire and ils allies."  A greal deal more is necessary if Britain and  her allies arc lo win this war. Hum has yet been  done, or, as yet, we arc prepared to do. The importance of "llie German victories in Rumania  prompted lhc New York Tribune, always pro-En-  Icnlc in its utterances, lo say editorially lhal "the  Allied nations' opportunity lo defeat Germany  and impose lhcir own terms on a conquered German Empire, ended wilh lhc disaster of Bucharest." And before Bucharest was laken the  London Times declared lhal lhe fate of the future  of England was being fought oul on lhe plains of  Rumania. It remains lo bc seen how far these  deductions arc correct. Certain il is lhal the  overrunning of Rumania and the closing of lhc  door lo the Easl against lhe, Allies, was lhe  severest blow of the\var. There are, it is true,  those who, oslrich-like, stick lhcir heads in the  sand and declare thai lhc Rumanian affair means  nothing.. We have heard a lot of lhis sort of  prallie since the war began. We "heard il when  lhc Entente ell'orts al lhc Dardanelles failed; we  heard it when we failed lo save Serbia; wc heard  if when lhe Russian drive failed and the German  drive succeeded; we hear il now when, after two  years of intrigue, Rumanian was finally induced  lo throw in her lot wilh lhe Allies, only lo be defeated-and overrun wilhin a few months. This  ostrich-like jingoism gets us nowhere. According  16 that kind of logic we arc stronger wilh every  German victory and Germany weaker. Bul lhc  map of Europe docs not support lhis logic of lhe  weakling. We musl do more lhan talk and prepare for spring drives lhal do nol come off.  in speaking thus we do not mean lo belittle lhc  brave work of lhe men al the front, nor lo cry  failure of lhe good efforts made in any direction.  But il is loo obvious lhat, as an Empire, we have  nol understood, and do not understand loday, lhe  magnitude of lhc lask before us.

As though this rock-ribbed world, sculptured with fire  And bastioned deep in lhc ethereal plan,  Can never be its morning self again  Because of this brief madness, man with man;  As though the laughing elements should tire  The very reason in this order reel;  As though, indeed, yon ghostly golden wheel  Of-.stars should cease from turning, or lhe moon  Befriend lhc night no more, or the wild rose  Forget the word, and June be no more June.  1 How many wars and long-forgotten woes  'Unnumbered, nameless, made like despair  Cn hearts long stilled; how many suns have set  yOn burning cities blackening the air,���������������������������  Yet dawn came dreaming back, her lashes wet  ''With dew, and daisies in her innocent hair.  Nor shall, for this, lhc soul's ascension pause,  Nor the sure evolution of the laws  Thai out of foulness lift the (lower to sun,  And out of fury forge Ihe evening star.  .Deem nol Love's building of the world undone���������������������������  Far Love's beginning was, her'end is far;  By paths of lire and blood her feet must climb,  Seeking a loveliness she scarcely knows,  Whose meaning is beyond thc reach of time.  ���������������������������R. LeGallicnne.  Wester denounces in strongest fashion, in' this  very book, the wrongs committed by German  ���������������������������militarism,'he sharply contrasts the good results  obtained by German disciplined patriotism and  orderly sense of duty with the shabby disorder  ancl selfish inefficiency"'which we like do hide  under high-sounding names because we dislike to  discipline ourselves into self-control and into the  power for sustained common ell'ort."  When wc read the casualty lists and think that  the Canadians represent only a small fraction of  lhe lolal number of men engaged in battle, we  are convinced lhal peace���������������������������permanent peace���������������������������"-is  coining as rapidly as lhc modern guns of war can  bring it.  ALLIES ANSWER GERMANY  ROLL OF HONOR  FOR  KING AND EMPIRE  ENDERBY  OVERSEAS  W. A  SURE, THERE IS A SANTA CLAUS  Dear Edilor: I am eight years old. Some of my  little friends say there is no Santa Claus. Papa  says, "If you sec it in Thc Sun, it's so." Please tell  me thc truth; is there a Santa Claus?   Virginia.  Virginia, your.lillle friends arc wrong.   They  have been affected by lhc scepticism of a sceptical  age.   They do not believe except they sec.   They  think that nothing can bc which is not comprehensible by their little minds.-   All minds,xVir-  $igia, whether they bc men's or children's, are  hale.   In this great universe of ours man is a  .  mere insect, an ant, in his intellect, as compared  .  with the boundless world about him, as measured  -r by the intelligence capable of grasping thc whole  :,; of truth and knowledge. ���������������������������     .  'Y : Yes, Virginia, there is a Santa Claus. He exists  y: as certainly as love and generosity and devotion  71' exist, and you know that they abound and give to  i>: our life its highest beauty and joy:   Alas! how  i'iK^s^sdrcary would be the world if there were no Santa  hvWf&y'V.V-'.l _ Tl 111..     ._ _     _1     ..  .

There would be no childlike failhV  poetry, no romance, to make' tolerable  existence.    Wc should have* no enjoyment,  The. eternal light with  fdls the world would be extinguished. / .  Not believe in Santa Claus! You might as well  . not believe in fairies! * You might get jrour papa  to hire men to watch in all dhc chimneys on  Christmas Eve to catch Santa Claus, but even if  lhcy did not sec Santa Claus coming down, whal  would that prove? Nobody'sees Santa Claus, but  that is no sign there is no Santa. Claus. Thc  most real things in thc world are those that  neither children nor men can sec. . Did you ever  sec fairies dancing on thc lawn? Of course not,  but that's no proof that they arc not there. No:  body can conceive or imagine all thc wonders'that  arc unseen and unseeable in thc world. You may  tear apart thc baby's rattle and sec what makes  thc noise inside, but there is a veil covering thc  , Thc answer of thc Entente governments lo thc  German proposals for a peace parley, while not  differing materially with previously expressed  determination from the same source, is.jnild in  language, and, although not giving an inkling as  to what would be the specific demands looking  to peace, an opening is left for Germany to submit terms. The answer is long, and covers thc  various outrages charged against Germany since  the opening of war, and says that an oiler to negotiate peace without stating terms cannot bc accepted as sincere.   Thc note concludes:  "Once again .the Allies declare that no peace is  possible so long as they have not secured reparation for violated rights and liberties, thc recognition of the principle of nationality and of the free  existence of small stales; so long as they have  not brought about a settlement calculated to end  once, and for all forces which have constituted a  perpetual menace to the nations and to afford the  only effective guarantee for thc future security of  thc world."        . .  According to thc Wall Street Journal, thc Allies  have borrowed two billlion dollars in thc United  Slates since thc war began. Of this amouni England alone borrowed $850,000,000. Canada and  neutral countries borrowed $368,000,000.  IP EARS WERE UNSTOPPED  If the Church's cars were unstopped she would  hear voices crying: "All old things arc passed  away; you have, come to the borders of the  Promise^ Land. The Kingdom of Heaven is at  hand. . Ahd they that were ready went in. If our  eyes were open wc could look and wonder at the  revolution that is on foot in men's thinking and  being, of which this war is but a birth-pang. Wc.  would look al it almost with terror Jest we should  fail in any of our duty towards it. Many have  longed to see the things that wc sec and have not  seen them. Then speak unto thc children, of  Israel that they go forward."���������������������������Montreal Witness.  James J. Hill says, "If you want to know  whether you arc destined to bc a success or nol,  3rou can easily find out. Thc test is simple and infallible���������������������������arc you able to save money? If nol  dropout. You will lose. You may think not, bul  you will lose as sure as fate, for thc seed of success is not in you."

DISCIPLINE AND THE REVERSE  J'i  ������������������  In thc "Pcnlccost of Calami ly," by Owen Wis-  tcr, hc begins by speaking of lhc German landscape: "A constant pleasure to die eye, a constant  repose to thc body and mind; look where * you  might, beauty was in some form to be seen, given  its chance by thc intelligence of man; not defaced,  but made the most of. I thought of our landscape, littered with rubbish, hideous with glaring  advertisements, of the rusty junk lying about our  farms and towns and railway stations. America  was ugly and shabby, made no by Americans.  Germany was swept and garnished, made so by  Germans. Everybody kept the rules. Each person  fitted his job, did it well, took it seriously."  Commenting on this phase of Ihe contrast between conditions in America and in Germany,  the Ladies Home Journal says: "ft would bc well,  indeed, for us, if in these matters, we. would learn  from Germany, aiid admit that, as a nation, we  urgently needed to be disciplined out of our present braggart, half-grown, hobbledehoy lawlessness. There arc men who, whether from folly or  because they seek profit by pandering to vanity  and love of ease and fear of effort and danger  and desire to make money without regard to anything else, denounce all such proposals as smack  ing of 'German militarism.'   But, although Owci  over here as it did in Canada. Thc food question  seems to bc far more serious lhan it is thought to  bc. For instance, thc stores will not sell more  than half a pound of sugar at a time and then only  lo a ...substantial customer, while bread will soon  be ancient history and we'll be .eating a mixture  of bran and Hour."  cn  i-Vrhcannoim cement J'ronr^  have agreed to let her have lhc Dardanelles would  have added interest if lhe German, Bulgarian and  Turkish army did not stand between Russia and  Constantinople.  What it Used to Be  Tn thc good old Molasses Limited days a lumber  jack was coming lo Enderby from Vernon. The  train was running as usual. "What's thc matter  with thc train? Why's it running so slow?" he  asked thc conductor. "If you don'l like lo ride  you may get off and walk," was the rejoinder.  "I would," replied the 1. j., "but I am not expected  until train time."  Robt. Airlh, Corporal  S. Allconi  Edgar L. 13awtree  Henry Arnold Jiogcrt  Victor Bogert  Albert Butler  .1.

Thc regular merchant has lo pay for newspaper space  lo enable him lo advertise his  wares, and he has a right to be protected against others taking an advantage not justified by conditions.  By adopting a uniform scale for  all, the newspapers of lhe Valley  interfere wilh none and protect all.  In fulure, do not expect to use the  columns of The Press for the purpose of announcing any money-gelling scheme whatsoever without  paying for it at lhe rate of 2 cents a  word. You would not go to the  grocer, Ihe but her, the baker, and  ask him lo hand you down goods,  from his shelves or from lhc block  without expecting to pay for it.
