All-the real good.that was ever  done in the world was done by  those who did it -in secret and ran  away for fear of being caught at it.  Another very enjoyable Triangle  evening was put on at thc movies  Tuesday evening, but thc cold snap  made lhc attendance small and the  house more or less frigid.  "That's what makes ma mad,"  said a four-year-old to his uncle,  when the kiddie's father asked his  mother if she would please spill  him a loose dollar out of her purse.  Those ladies having knitting for  thc Red Cross arc requested to hand  to the secretary as early as possible, as another case of goods is to  bc   sent   io   headquarters   at   once.  ==-=iJ-hc=-Summcrland-=Rc.vic-w���������������������������wants-  to know if the proposal for thc establishment of a municipal department in the government of thc Province has ever been seriously taken  up.

Salmon Arm curlers came over  for ah afternoon ancl evening game  with Endcrhy rinks last Thursday.  Dill skipped for Enderby in thc afternoon game ancl Scott skipped the  evening game, with favorable results to all concerned, thc home  rinks having some thc best of it.

A meeting of the  Enderby   District  Tuesday evening,  for the purpose o  farmers of the  was called for  in K. of P. fiVU  discussing lh.p  advisability of organizing a branch  here of thc United Farmers of B. C.  The meeting was called by S. T.  Elliott, of Kelowna, chairman of lhe  organization committee. Owing lo  the excessively cold weather the  attendance was too small to warrant  any action being taken. Mr. Elliott  explained to the few gathered that  the United Farmers Association is  on the same lines as the organization of the Northwest. A branch is  already in operation covering thc  Kelowna District, and good work is  heing accomplished, but it is felt  thai lo make the organization really  effective, and that the organization  may have a broader scope and  greater power, other branches in  every district in the Province must"  be started. -  The Association -is for farmers  only; it-is free from all political entanglements and does not in any  way interfere with" any existing  organization in which thc farmers  arc interested. Its purposes "are "to  forward the interests-of thc farmer  in any honorable and legitimate  way; to watch legislation relating  to their interests, ancl to suggest to  parliament or ihe legislature from  .lime-to -.time the- cnactmenUiof*such  legislation as may be decided by a  convention or by the central board,  and to carry on any business and  exercise any power of trade-as thc  executive may deem advisable when  authorized by an "acl of the legislature or parliament."  SEED  CLEANER  The Department of Agriculture  has purchased a fanning mill or  seed cleaner. This mill is to be .used  to demonstrate the importance of  seed selection and seed cleaning by  the use of a fanning mill.   This mill  is operated by hand and has a capacity of from 30 to 40 bushel per  hour, ant! will clean- almost. any  kind of seed. Any Farmers' Inslf-  tule may secure the use of this seed  EMPIRE  FARMING ?  A gigantic agricultural scheme is  being promoted by Jeading-m'cn of  the Old Country, involving, it is  cleaner for demonstration purposes' proposed, '200,000,000 acres of Alberta, Saskatchewan, Manitoba, and  British Columbia land, this land to  bc developed by British -state  money, to provide means of paying  the Empire's war debt.    A special  provided the members of the Institute have sufficient seed lo clean to  make the expense of conducting the  'demonstration worth while. A  member of the staff of thc Agretii-  tural Department will accompany  the machine to demonstrate the use  of same. Any Institute applying for  the use of the machine should first  ascertain the amount of seed to be  cleaned in the district. If this .warrants thc holding of a seed-cleaning  demonstration, some central place  will be selected and arrangements  made for the-bringing of all the  seed of the district together at the  place lo bc designated.  All members of the Northern Okanagan Fanners' Institute who wish  to avail themselves of this opportunity are requested to advise the  secretary, Chas. W. Little, Mara, of  the fact, ancl what quantity, and  kind Ihey have to clean, ancl tlie  secretary' will take up the matter  with the Department.

PENSION COMMISSIONERS  ?:\ *-?  The Dominion Government has  appointed a Board of Pension Commissioners for Canada with offices  at Ottawa.l As this Board wishes to"  cause as little delay as possible in  dealing with.communications with  regard to pensions, it is, wished the  public would correspond directly  with the Board, Ottawa.

FEBRUARY 1, 1917  various towns in dictating the mid-week half-  holiday to suit their own convenience, and, later,  in a commillcc from thc Merchants' Association  going post-haste to Victoria nnd endeavoring to  get tlie Government to immediately amend the  Act so as to compel thc wholesalers of Vancouver  to give up their Saturday closing and adopt thc  Wednesday afternoon closing, has had the effect  of causing the wholesalers and the clerks to do all  in their power to antagonize the mid-week half-  day oil', and we read in the Province that "an  cll'orl is being made by lhe committee appointed  by thc retail merchants to formulate-*a scheme  whereby the1 difference of opinion which prevails  on lhe half-holiday question will be adjusted in  a manner satisfactory to all trades. Four or five  different closing schemes are being discussed,  among them a Saturday hall'-holiday during the  summer months only, with G o'clock closing all  thc year; no half-holiday, but a 6 o'cock closing  every business clay; a 48-hour week for employees  with, no holidays.  The Province says editorially: "After all, retail  stores -make their living by serving the public,  and if lhcy willingly or unwillingly run counter  to the convenience of lhc public they will not be  able lo obtain business, and thc successful.continuation of business is the vital tiling to bolh employers and employees. . . . To lump-the entire  wholesale and retail trade under one head and  insist-thai business shall bc carried on only by  leave of legislation, which may be thc outcome of  totally unrelated causes, seems absurd and unnecessary. . . . The half-holiday problem seems  one for common sense and common convenience,  nol for paler/nal. legislation."  There is a strong movement to have the Half-  holiday Act amended at the coming session of thc  Provincial Legislature so as to make it more  elastic and taking out of it thc  features.  THE HAPPY FARMER  Thc average farmer thinks the average business  man in the average small town or city is a prince,  and growing rich at the farmers' expense. There  never was a greater error. The average farmer  lias nothing lo compare to the worries of lhe average businessman, at no lime. And in times like  these, thc farmer is in clover while thc businessman is ekeing out an existence in a thistle bed.  So let the farmer go to. The little world of which  he is lord and master offers to no other what it  offers to him today,..and will for many a day lo  come. In a recent article in a coast paper an account is given of a case in point.  Mr and Mrs. R. W. Chalmers of Thrums, B.

By this means  class legislation  According to thc Summerland Review all lhc  South Okanagan lake towns are strongly opposed  to thc mid-week half-holiday and in favor of the  week-end. This opposition, which seems to be  general, is causing thc merchants at last to realize  lhat they cannot hope ever to make the in id-week  hall'-holiday popular with the people. And their  experience in this respect is but a repetition of the  experience in other countries and localities where  the mid-week interruption of business has been  attempted-  ORPHAN AT TWO, NOW PRIME MINISTER  we nave no waste and are able to keep six animals; afloat  where before, we could feed only two, and weilo'im  Illustrating thc hatred of the people of England  for David Lloyd George when he first became conspicuous as a reformer in ihe House of Commons,  the story is told, ol" a common dock laborer who  was being' decorated for having rescued a man  from drowning at the risk of his own life.

Somebody's darling! so young and so brave!  Wearing still on his pale sweet face-  Soon to be hid by the dust of the grave  The lingering light of his boyhood's grace  Matted and damp are the curls of gold  Kissing the snow of that fair young brow;  Pale are the lips of delicate mold,  Somebody's darling is dying now, >  Back from the beautiful blue:vcined brow  Brush every wandering silken thread,  Cross his hands on his bosom now,  Somebody's darling is still and dead.

Thc women who have penetrated the war zone  and have written alone have used thc bleeding  pen. It remained for a woman, Ellen LaMotte,  ~\\ French nurse; iiriitr^bi66kr"Thc"Backwash^of-  War," to draw thc real portrait of thc ravaging  beast. One unforgettable scene she paints of the  dying soldier in thc hospital where tens of thousands have died to the accompaniment of delirious  cries, punctuated by thc chaplain's ten thousand  times reiterated demand:  "Say, 'God, I give my life freely for my  country.'  "I don't want to die, I tell you; curse you, I  don't want to die!" cries thc soldier whocs putrid  wounds had poisoned his dying brain as he  uttered terrible imprecations.  "Say, 'God, 1 give my life freely for my country,'Say,'for my country.'"  "I want to live, I tell you; I want to live!- My  wife, my children!" and the seventeenth victim of  gangrene fell back dead in Ellen's arms that day  and was hurried to the friendly quicklime.  Were there an Ellen LaMotte to chronicle the  like tragedies in thc German, in thc Rumanian,  and in the Russian trench hospitals, the records  might read: V  "Say, 'Premier Trepoff, I give my life gladly,  and the lives of my wife and children that the  Czar my have a winter port on the Bosporus.' "  And the German might be asked to recite his  trench catechism:  "Say, T give my blinded eyes so that Germany  may have her place in the sun."

ALTOGETHER AMAZING  The war has introduced to us many strange  innovations, and changes, and not thc least of  these is represented in the cinema film, "The Battle of the Somme." It is very wonderful) indeed  to be able to sit in comfort and safety at home  and witness thc passing of events'on the great  battlefields of Europe. Thc drama or tragedy  of war-unfolds itself before ,om% eyes. We sec  thousands of fine lads,, the flower of our youth,  hclmeted and armed to tlie teeth, going into battle  with a smile on their lips and a cheery waive of  the hand as they swing past the recording cinema.  We look on them, still smiling, fixing their bayonets ready for the charge. We see the charge���������������������������  an amazing scene in which men slip silently back  to the trench face, or, with' a weird mechanical  movement, drop in their tracks or stiffen into I  strange shapes. We sec monstrous guns.rearing  heavenward and vomiting forth destruction. The  cinema has achieved a rare triumph in bringing  us face to face with the grim reality of modern  war. There is little romance about it, and less  of holiness. Still.the film is far from depressing.  There is a subtile attraction in thc ceaseless activity that pervades each incident and scene, an  inspiration subtile and sure in the obvious cheerfulness and resolution stamped on the youthful  faces^-whiclLJook at us. as-lhcy. flit l)ast_pn_ the  screen. It is altogether an amazing show. Its  effect is bound to make for good, I'or, if it fails to  inspire us wilh thc pacifists' horror of war, it as  certainly fails lo lessen in thc slightest degree  our inherent love of peace.���������������������������Glasgow Times.  Thousands of acres of the waste lands of England arc this year being brought under cultivation  through the Government contracting with the  owners of tbe land lo take llie crop at a price that  ensures them a profit. The Government is urging  all farmers to grow oats, lhis being found to be  the best cereal i'or the men in the field. One man  tells of his experience tbe past season in reclaiming 136 acres of waste "sod" land, which he broke  up, put. on heavy loads of chalk and artificial  manures and planted wheat, oats, peas, potatoes  and lucerne. Hc spent $6,600 on getting the land  into condition and cleared $8,650 on the crop, or  a net profit of $15 an acre.  They are talking of imposing restrictions upon  women in the Old Country in the matter of dress,  and the idea is advanced that everyone should  wear a uniform. This, it is argued, would lower  the standard of life and place everyone on an  equality in the matter of dress at least. Women  are working and earning as they never did before  in England, and this has made it possible for them  to spend large sums on clothing, furs, etc. It is  argued by others who ask the q ties lion why the  women who earn the money should not spend it  as they choose?  They still have money for jewels in London.  A valuable necklace of 45 pearls, superb in size,  color and matching, which is said to have occupied 23 years to get together, recently was bought  by a dealer for $128,000.

Calder writes:  "Friends of the Tiench Comfort  Club, Iwish lo thank you for the  splendid parcel you sent. I appreciate very much your kindness in  icmembering me. I often think of  Fnderby and all thc friends I made  while there, mid I am glad that they  too, think of me. I hardly know  whal lo write in a letter like this.  I keep the friends posted with my  doings. I am proud to say, too, that  I have won the Military Medal, and  T am sure you will all rejoice with  mc. Thc life is a rough one, but am  content lo know that I am doing  my 'bit' wilh the rest."  Here is-a note from Flight Lieut.  Jas. Glen, which i.s so characteristic  of "Jim," all his friends will enjoy  it: "Just a note to convey lo you  and Ihe Trench Comfort Club my  appreciation* of the remembrance  that arrived safely loday. II was  rather heartbreaking the popularity  thai was mine when the olher boys  recognized the familiar Neilson's  chocolates, for, although we are in  the Imperial'service, all bul two of  thc pilots in the wing are Canadians, consequently I had a box of  chocolates and then J didn't in just  as many seconds. They were awfully good though, so please accept  my thanks on behalf of those who  partook.  "One olher item T feel I should  mention while f am writing. As  you know, mosl of the other Fnderby boys are in the Irenches, or close  behind ihe lines. At v the outside  they arc only allowed the very necessities, and often, owing lo circumstances, must dispense with  even these. Consequently, small  parcels coming through the mail  arc just simply Godsends. In this  service I have all the personal baggage I wish, clean, warm living  accommodations, and the best of  everything that can be procured. Tn  view of all this, I feel more or less  [ am nol entitled lo thc consideration the others from Endcrhy  should have. Remember, I want  you lo fully understand, I appreciate thoroughly the thoughtfulness  and kindness of the Fnderby people, but please, if my wishes in the  matter count for anything, don't  any one of thc others  kindness to "me."  about it cither, but we are learning  more every day. I wish they would  take me to France. I do not expect  I will ever live in Enderby again,  but I will be back to see my old  friends once more. I was out for  a walk yesterday, and was taken  for a ride in a car hy some kind-  hearted fellow. Wc saw some  lovely places and made thc clay  pass much better."  neglect  through  Sergt.  J.  A.  Green writes from  Witley Camp: "I was very much  surprised to receive a parcel from  your club this morning, and I have  to lhank you all for your kindness.  Anything from Canada always  looks good to the hoys here. There  was one mistake that you made and  thai was in addressing it to France.  Although the most of our battalion  have gone over, I have not had the  luck to get that far yet, having been  held back on account of being in  hospital after I landed here. But  hope to be in France around lhe 1st  of February. They give everybody  a pretty hard test before allowing  them lo cross the channel. I am at  present with the Canadian military  police, but we may be ordered  across any day.

The articles were very nice and all  thc boys in our hut wish me, to  send their thanks also, as,, you see,  all parcels that come to lhc boys in  our hut we divide up amongst the  bunch. I was rather amused when  I unpacked lhc parcel and came to  the chewing tobacco and tooth  brush, ft caused lots of laughter,  being as they have drawn all my  teeth. Nevertheless, the chewing  gum was soon fixed, as lhal is whal  the boys like, and especially the  chewing tobacco. II had lo bc cut  up into 33 pieces lo go around, as  thai is thc kind of tobacco lhe boys  cannol get in this counlry."  Ptc.' E. E. Wheeler sends this  newsy teller: "I received the parcel  from you last week and was pleased  to gel it, for it was a line parcel,  and I can sec myself that the  friends we have in Enderby arc  trying lo make us happy, and anything from home is sure good to get.
