Two Enderby rinks went to  Armstrong last Thursday and won  three' oul of four games played,  thc aggregate of the scores being  53 for Enderby and 31 for thc boys  of thc celery camp.  - Wm. Thonilinson, who has been  in charge of the government mineral exhibit at thc San Diego fair  for the pasl two. years or more, is  returning to New Denver in April  lo develop his mining claims.  Owing lo a severe attack of thc  T^ippe,"MrTGrcgory'ditr not" put "on"  his weekly picture show al thc  Opera House Tuesday night. Hc  advises patrons of the house to  watch thc billboards for the next  announcement.  For an essay on the best reason  why advlrtising pays, Col. R. T.  Lowery, of Ihe Greenwood Ledge,  was a winner in a recent newspaper contest in California, where  the genial "R. T." has basked in lhe  sunshine on the sands by thc sea  at ol' San Diego.  Wednesday morning when some  of the workmen at the mill went  lo work at 7 o'clock, they ran upon  ji large doc in lhe lumber yard.  The animal had apparently rested  on thc sawdust bed during the  night. It quietly walked away and  strolled across the ice lo the  thicket of -the island.  Friday night (to-morrow) is the  regular meeting night of the Board  of Trade. These meetings have  been made most interesting and  profitable in the past and matters  arc to come before the meeting tomorrow night which should receive the support of every citizen  ���������������������������particularly  our businessmen.  Mr. Welsh gave a very interesting  and instructive lecture on India in  the Babtist church Monday evening,  illustrated by lantern slides. The  building was crowded, and the  scenes pictured and talk given  were greatly enjoyed. The lecture  was preceded by a short musical  program, by Ihe choir, and a vocal  selection by Mrs. F. Fravel.  The schedule curling games have  been finished for the season, the  rink skipped by Ed. Mack coming  oul on top. Some highly colored  scientific games now occupy the  ice nightly, skips and skips-to-be  ���������������������������maybe���������������������������getting around them the  best material-for challenge games.  Just now" the-city is-trying to put  the Dill rink down. The city won  the first game and -lost the second.  The lubber is to be played.  Reserved seals arc to be* placed  on sale this week for the Battle of  the Somme pictures. Thc plan pf  seats will be found at the oflice of  the Walker Press. Jhe price of  seats has been placed at 75c. The  demand for seats for these greatest  of war pictures is going to be  heavy, and those desiring to get a  choice of seats, are advised.to act  promptly. Mr. Gregory,is lo-have,  special music for -this occasion,  which it,is hoped will add to lhc'  inipressivcness-oT the battle scenes  depicted. '.        '..���������������������������.'

It is also debating thc  advisability of purchasing a demonstration lime-stone' pulverizer to  be used in those districts which  need limestone most. ��������������������������� The cost of  the ground limestone lo the.farmer  would bc from $1.75 to $3 per ton.  In olher provinces and states where  this machine is'in" use the farmers  get together and quarry the limestone prior to the arrival of. the  machine. When the machine arrives the farmers arc expected to  supply the horse-power to remove  the machine from the station to the  quarry and back.  A'n effort is to be made to get thc  farmers'of this, district lo become  interested in this project so they  may by thus co-operating get limestone for their land at a very low  price. . It Js doubtful, however,-it'll can be accomplished this season,  owing lb so much' fall' work' being  left- undone last year, and the  general scarcity of farm .labor this  year,, ally of whi.ch,lwill .throw. ���������������������������so  much extra labor upon the shoulders of the men who have-to do il.

Wc hold no brief for  thc Okanagan Telephone Company. Thc only  question that interests us is that of public utility  and public service.

THE ENDERBY PRESS AND WALKER'S WEEKLY-  Thursday, March 1, 1917  When we hear so much about the need of  having coast buyers come���������������������������into the district to  buy up our field produce, it is interesting to note  what the leading men of Canada think of the  future for lhc co-operative selling organization  of thc Okanagan. This is indicated by the fact  lhat thc C. P. R. has agreed to lend $25,000 to  the Okanagan United Growers, al 6 per cent, for  lhe erection of proper office and storage and  packing buildings at Vernon, and it is understood lhal the Penticton association has been  granted a loan on the same reasonable rale for  like buildings lo be erected there.  Let us understand lhis important fact, lhal  no organization can bc made cll'eclive unless lhe  farmers use il, and sec lhat il is properly run,  and thai the profits go lo lhc growers and not in  keeping alive an institution, which docs not command their unanimous support. ._  Thc thought of destruction which now is a I  large in the world must bring in ils train influences which cannol bul destroy���������������������������nol the onc  against whom ourhalrcd is directed, but the one  who directs and indulges the hale.

THURSDAY, MARCH 1, 1917  LOYAL  CO-OPERATION  There is at the present lime a prevailing belief in certain circles that our farmers require  competitive buyers  to come in  from   the coast  markets lo bid against one anolher for lhe produce raised in lhis dislrict.   It is fell lhal competition in buying would mean belter prices for  lhc   farmer,  and  perhaps  belter  conditions   of  payment.    This feeling is nol new.    Every cooperative   movement   lhat   ever   was   organized  has had lo face similar condilions.    Il is upon  this rock lhal more co-operative movements are  wrecked  lhan   upon  any olher.    Farmers, as a  general rule, have little confidence in lhcir own  organizations.    They start  ihis movement and  that movement, and all goes along merrily until  obstacles arise .or perhaps until, because of abnormal conditions, independent buyers are prepared to offer them more than they can gel for  their  produce  through   their own  organization.  They are Ihen prepared lo throw down lhcir cooperative organization and lake lhc bait offered!  by  lhe  man   who is  prepared   lo  speculate on  market condilions.  II is ail very well to have one independent  buyer in every dislrict, who, perhaps, can offer  the farmer ready cash for his produce. It keeps  the    farmer., satisfied���������������������������or... reasonably... satisfied.  Tn these Avar days, our newspapers and the  people generally, seem to hold the idea lhal lhcy  musl work themselves up inlo a passion al lcasl  once a day and denounce Kaiser Bill, his submarines, President Wilson or the United Stales,  because of the depredations of war. Wc little  realize the folly of it all. And the saddcsl pari  of il lies in the fact lhal in the proportion wc  indulge lhc passion, and lhc more wc keep lhc  war spirit alive wilhin us, lhe more poison wc  create wilhin ourselves. Anger, fear, anxicly,  arc among lhc emotions or sentiments which  literally poison lhc blood. II has often been  said lhat evil thoughts arc poisonous, the meaning being Lhal lhcy corrupt olher people, but thc  real facf is lhal lhcy poison our own blood. By  losing control of ourselves and indulging in  anger and hale, by yielding lo anxicly, fear and  unwholesome thoughts, wc cause an irritation  or disturbance which, according lo lhc latest discoveries of scientists, has' lhc effect of producing  a poison in thc blood lhat may have serious  consequences.  Naluralists declare lhat the venom of snakes  is generated by anger and fear; lhat it is rapidly  col lee led in a special receptacle and thence discharged at the object of its anger or fear, and il  is further explained- lhat lhc same process lakes  place in thc human body, bul that wc have no  special organ lo receive, il: and il therefore dis-  oclscs in \hc blood, acting against ourselves instead of for our protection. Be lhat as il may, it  is generally conceded lhal we are literally poisoned by the emotions mentioned, and by any  senlimenl or passion which upsCls the smooth  working of our minds.  W you desire some further substantia tion of  what'.scicnlisls have discovered in this connection, jusl keep lab on yourself. Note thc irritability and clouding up and clogging up of your  physical and mental machinery during and following one of your "passion plays." How much  belter" you feel when you keep yourself in harmony with lhe best in your fellows lhan when  you lei fling your haired and indulge sentiments of poison against your neighbor, or���������������������������just  now���������������������������lhe enemy.

B. 1J17  DEPARTMENT OF FINANCE  OTTAWA  V'  'WOMEN���������������������������A HATE SONG"  I hate Women- u-  Thcy get on my Nerves.  There are the Domestic Ones.  They arc the worst.  Every moment is packed with Happiness.  They breathe deeply  And walk with large strides, eternally hurrying  home  To see about dinner.  They are the kind  Who say, with  a  tender  smile,   "Money's  not  everything."  They arc always confronting me with dresses,  Saying, "I made it myself."  They read Woman's pages and try out recipes.  OU/how I hate that kind of women.  Then there arq the human Sensitives Plants;..  The Bundles of Nerves.  They are different from everybody else;  they  even tell you so. .  Some onc is always stepping on 'hciryfcelings.  Everything hurls them���������������������������deeply.-  Their eyes arc .forever filling with tears.  They always want to talk to me about the Real  :  Things,  Thc things that Matter.  Yes, they know they could write.* <���������������������������  Conventions stifle them.  They arc always  longing to  get away���������������������������Away  from It All!  ���������������������������I wish to Heaven they would-  And  then  there are those who arc always in  Trouble.  Always.  Usually they have Husband-trouble.  They arc Wronged. _  They arc thc women who nobody���������������������������understands  They wear faint, wistful smiles.  And, when spoken to, they start.  They begin by saying they must suffer in silence  No one will ever know���������������������������  And then they go into details.  JChftn^tlip-rp., aro-the-Well-informed .ones   They are pests.   .  They know everything on earth  FEED THE CROPS ON THE FARM  Thc prevailing high prices of feed have a tendency to discourage certain people who arc just  making a beginning in thc handling of live stock  ���������������������������more especially in those cases where ample  facilities do not prevail for thc production of  home-grown feed. In considering whether or not  it will, bc advisable to decrease the number of  head of stock maintained, it is well, among other  factors, to consider thc conditions which arc  likely to prevail after peace has been declared.  Wc are justified in anticipating a very great reduction in the price of grain, and there is every  reason to believe that under ordinary conditions  iri most if not all of the Province, thc most profitable method of disposing, of our crops will bc  to feed them on thc farm.  No one can effectively deny that thc live-stock  industry shall continue to.be the base of permanently - successful agriculture, and in a Province such as British Columbia natural conditions arc such as tp encourage mixed farming  rather than thc one-crop system'. S:      /  "If, however, there appears good reason t,why  any particular farmer should decrease the  amount of live stock his farm ,is carrying, let  him seize the opportunity ^of raising the standard by weeding out inferior animals." In any  class of stock onc may find animals that arc  profitable and those which are not. Where  high-priced feeding-stuffs arc being used, it becomes more and more important that only thc  best of animals be handled.���������������������������Agricultural Journal.  r\  nd will tell you about it gladly.  They feci it their mission to correct wrong impressions.  They know Dales and Middle names.  They absolutely ooze Current Events.  Oh, how they bore me.  There are the ones who simply cannot Fathom  Why all thc men arc mad about them.  They say they've tried and tried.  They tell you about some one's Husband;  What hc said  And how hc looked when hc said it-  And then they sigh and ask,  "My dear, what is there about mc?"  ���������������������������Don't you hale them?  There are thc unfailing Cheerful ones.  They are usually unmarried .  They are always busy making little Gifts  And planning little surprises.  They tell me to be, like them, always looking on  the Bright Side.  They ask me what they would do without their  sense of humor?  [ sometimes yearn to kill them.  Any jury would acquit me.

Some of the business blocks in Edmonton consume from 5 to 18 tons of coal daily. We are  dad we do not live in Edmonton.  ������������������ ____���������������������������__���������������������������   When you have learned to rely upon yourself  for support and happiness, you have learned one  of life's greatest lessons.  It is a disgrace to half do things.  And now the Prohibition leaders at the Coast  threaten to demand that thc Provincial Government shall forthwith prohibit the sale of liquor.  It. is now conceded that thc soldiers' vote has defeated the Prohibition measure voted on at the  last election, and the "drys" are not disposed to  accept the verdict.  DRASTIC  MEASURES  -I Ms-ob viou s-tha Uthc^s ubm arin c_bl ockade^of  England is being seriously felt by thc allied  countries- It was pointed out by Mr. Lloyd  George in thc House, of Commons a few days  ago, that thc ultimate success of the Allied cause  depends on thc solution of thc tonnage difficulties with which the nation is confronted. Hc  said thc stocks of food in Great Britain al lhc  present time arc lower than they ever have been  before, and it is essential for the life of thc nation that" every possible effort bc made to increase home production. Thc Government, he  said, is hopeful of finding means of dealing with  thc submarine, "but wc should bc guilty of folly  if wc rested tranquilly upon the expectation of  realization of that hope."  In order lo save tonnage for other purposes,  all fruits other than oranges and bananas, arc  to bc prohibited importation, and many other  drastic steps have been taken to cut down thc  tonnage requirements for purposes, other than  war purposes.  As an encouragement to home production the  Premier announced that the Government would  guarantee a price of 38 shillings G pence for oats  this year, 32 shillings for thc next two years and  24 shillings for the three following ycars. The  price of potatoes would be guaranteed for lhe  coming season only at ������������������6 a ton. Thc opinion was  expressed by the Premier lhat food prices were  not likely to decrease for a long time after the  war. For wheat the Government guarantees the  farmers the following minimum prices per  quarter: For 1917, CO shillings, for 1918 and  1919, 55 shillings, for 1920, 1921 and 1922, 45  shillings.  What a pity that thc truth is thc most disagreeable thing onc can say about thc Avar!  Discipline is more healthful lo the child than  indulgence.  FARM PRODUCE  There is a big demand now for all kinds of Farm Produce at high prices, and I can handle anything from one  sack to twenty carloads, for the local market in Vancouver or for export.     If you have anything to sell, see me.  If you want to buy anything along this line for seed  purposes, see me.  GROW!   GROW!   GROW!     Make every acre  count this year ! This is the way we can be patriotic,  and do our fighting. Food will be needed this year as  never before !  J. E. CRANE Enderby, B. C.  "PRODUCE MORE IN 1917"���������������������������Hon.
