Lewis returned from a  business trip to Seattle this week.  The world beat the Irish jn an  exciting game of curling at thc  Enderby rink last Saturday night.  Mr. Paradis returned from the  vicinity of Chase the past week,  where he has been employed the  past winler.  ' Remember to do your shopping  early next Saturday evening, as the  merchants of Enderby wish to see  the Battle of the Somme.  Mrs. Hezekiah Elliot received the  sad news of Her father's death this  week. He \vas-������������������a resident of East  Molsey, Old England, aged 84.  The mortgage sale of certain Endcrhy property which was advertised, to be held ycst'ciday, did not  . lake place, an order from the court  having, been . seemed postponing  Ihe sale until certain claims of.the  mortgagor could be heard.

Thc paper from which the  quotations were cut' was twenty  years old, which fact was not  mentioned.  Lieul. E. Evans gave a very interesting and instructve recruiting  lecture al the Opera House last evening to a small audience. The lecture was illustrated! by moving  , pictures of the work and training  camp of the Canadian Engineers.  .Lieut., Evans has covered a good  portion of thc Province in his recruiting tour,   lie reports fair suc-  family together Ihis week and  make the back yard spick ancl  span. Then, as soon as il is dry  enough to work up, instead of Jelling noxious weeds grow, plant a  productive vegetable garden, and  your worry about the high cost of  green stuffs will be no more. The  possibililics of back yard gardening-are almost limitless. There are  thousands of acres of them undeveloped, ancl Ihey may as well be  producing enough vegetables for  the family table during the summer  and, properly canned, enough for  the winter, loo.

Estabrook,  field secretary, had been most generous. The committee feels that  Iheic are still a good many who did  nol have an opportunity of doing  lhcir bit to assist in the work of thc  "Y.M." In order to'maintain the  work being clone by the Military  Y.M.C.A., it is urged that all subscribe as generously as they can,  and it is hoped that as many as can  will give monthly subscriptions  until the termination of the war.

And as one guess Western front, and in Mesopotamia, and in {,,nou" mg ,0 ,;,-(j '���������������������������  seems to be as near right as anolher, we arc going Mussia are but the outward signs of whal is  lo make a guess ourselves. Our guess is lhat Lhe; transpiring behind lhe scenes. , It was said some  Germans are going back in order lo get back, j months ago hy a prominent writer lhal lhe firs I  Whal they wili do aflcr lhcy get back remains to;.sign of approaching peace to look for would he  ,'reat charm and power." ^ secn-    ^u' 1'1C enemy has had good reasons, lhal all the men who were in power in lhe several  for moving back. You will remember when llie| nalions originally brought inlo war would step  first offer of peace came from Germany, the re- down and oul and Iheir places would be filled hy  ply of the Allies was lhat Germany must givelothers who would he in a position lo weigh lhe  some heller proof'of her sincerity in claiming!great issues al slake more dispassionately nnd  lhat she had no intention of holding the "occu-i more considerately one ol" the olher.

This year, 1917, we; hide to peace enacted within lhc past week or  y  have been assured from bolh Allied and enemy  sources is to bc "peace year." Referring lo the  opening ol* the Imperial war conference in London on the 20th inst, Premier Lloyd George said:  "Overseas representatives have been asked lo attend what aie in effect meetings of an Imperial  cabinet, because wc fell it imperative that the  whole Empire should assist in arriving at certain  impending decisions about thc war and terms of  peace which must bc of decisive importance lo  the future and all ils people." These words were  spoken bul a day or two ago. The Germans know  that Britain means business. They know lhcy  can look for just treatment al the hands of  Britain and her allies, provided they themselves  are prepared lo give proof of Iheir good intentions. The backward move of the enemy may  mean a move in prepration for a powerful offen- nol appear lo be far distant.  two? Britain's change of leaders came with the  downfall of Premier Asquith and Earl Grey;  Germany's with lhc outgoing of lhe original war  lords in.command; Austria's wilh the death of  Emperor Joseph; France's with the resignation ol"  lhe pasl and present cabinet; Russia's wilh lhe  downfall of Czar Nicholas and his bureaucratic  form of government. Finally the world nalions  at war have reached a position wherc the several  peoples may meel on a common footing, and  when Germany, the last of the European empires  to be. ruled "by divine right" bows the knee to the  inevitable, and gives ample proof lhal she, loo,  has accepted lhe dictum that henceforth (here  shall bc no "divinely appointed" autocratic as  ruler of her people, then shall thc peace lhe world  longs I'or come.

But  Russia in successful revolution, means one of the  greatest events in history. Had the revolt failed,  It would have meant only anolher revolt put  down and a few hundred unfortunate patriots  sent lo Siberia or lo a quicker death, and the iron  heel of Russian autocracy sel lighter upon lhc  neck of the people' But the revolution succeeded,  and therein lies lhe difference. Mad it failed, it  would have been considered by Ihe world a crime  againsl lhe stale. lis-success* portends an event  as great as any in history. Whatever ell'eel il  mav have upon lhe war, and il is as yel somewhat  doubtful as lo whal ihis will he, lhe ell'eel will be  | far reaching in lhe life of lhe Russian nalion itself, and upon other countries lying along side of  Russia. 11. means lhat lhe days of the "divine  right of kings" is fast drawing lo a close; lhal  Conspicuous'Wasie and snobbery, all based upon  and having direct relation lo this "divine right"  of lhe. ruling class, has reached iis limiL in the  world, nnd soon musl give way lo something less  costly bul more useful. It means lhal lhe com-  nion"people are coming lo the lop, and lhat lhe  davs of frills and gold braid, crowns and scepters,  are numbered. When Russia, lhe greales! advocate of Absolulcism in Europe, has to bow to  the inevih.ble, lhe bright star of Democracy is  rapidly approaching its. grcalest splendor.  The world has jusl passed through ils greatest  period of Conspicuous Waste in peace. This  period terminated when lhc war began. We arc  now witnessing the greatest period of Conspicu-  Wasle in war. One had lo follow thc other,  lingo u\)en tha! beautiful but empty theory  "the divine right ol" kings." As lhc war has progressed wc have seen lhe belligerent nations cut  out the Conspicuous Waste in everything but  war itself. Finally wc shall see the Conspicuous Waste of war will devour the superficial  wealth of the would, and. of mankind, leaving  only [hose absolutely needful things of life, such  as kindness, cb.aritablenss, helpfulness and personal character, impressed more deeply than ever  upon the heart of humanity, and upon these attributes will the new civilization bc built. Following Russia's example, thc demand I'or a democratic form of government will next be heard  in Germany. Only a few days ago Germany's  leading statesman, Chancellor von Hollwcg, foreshadowed this when he said: "Woe lo the stales-  man who should believe lhal after the catastrophe, such as lhc world has never seen before,  thc scope of which contemporaries and those  directly engaged "in if cannot possibly measure,  hc can* start again from where he left 6IT before  lhe caiasrophc". If hc should try lo put new wine  into old bottles, woe lo lhat statesman."..  Perhaps Greal Britain is lhe most democratic  kingdom   the  world  has  ever seen.    Wc  take  much pride in our democracy. But wc, too, must  prepare lo break away from lhe old customs of  Conspicuous Waste.    We have had a very large.  jidea of that Superior Class, who in years that arc  [gone proved their exemption from any manual  or useful labor by wearing ruffles lhal came over  the  hands,   rendering  them   practically   useless.  They wore dainty slippers with  polished silver  buckles or bows, while stockings, much dainty  and delicate finery.    Corsets were first worn-by  men,   which   forbade  any  useful  bodily  clforl.  Some of these things have been relegated to the.  lie  In thc Salmon Arm Observer, a week or so ago,  some six columns wcrc'dcvoled to giving a .slalemenl of an account againsl lhat city for legal  services rendered, amounting lo some few hundred dollars. Every item in the statement was  no doubt a legal charge, and the whole thing  accurate in every detail. But it could nol be read  " by anyone���������������������������exccpl, perhaps, by the ratepayers of  Salmon Arm���������������������������without the humor of thc situation coming lo the surface.

Dominion Department of Agriculture  OTTAWA, CANADA.  HON, MARTIN BURRELL, Minister.  THE INDIAN AS AN AGRICULTURIST  -A-Avriter-in-the-Vnneonvcr-World, one in c.losc-  touch wilh the work on the Indian reserves of the  interior oi' thc Province,  tells al length ol' the  progress thc Indians arc making.   "It is a popular  idea," hc says, "both in this Province and elsewhere through Canada that thc Indian is a failure  from an industrial point of view; but Canadians,  like many other people in lhc past, have had lo  revise many erroneous  notions  from   lime  to  lime, and let us hope Ihey may also have to do  a little revising iii connection wilh our Indian  brethren."    He tells of the encouraging results  from lhe farm competitions held under the direction of  the  Inspector of  Indian   reserves.   The  competition is for the besl kepi land, most land  under cultivation, and the best showing in stock  raising, dwelling and outbuildings, care of implements, dairying, orchard and gardening.    In  all cases where the Indians have entered these  competitions,  they  have shown  great  interest,  and the character of their work has been painstaking and thorough.    This writer says the reserve in  the vicinity ol" Enderby contains  thc  most land for lhe population and" the best land,  but the Indians themselves, he says, do not live  up to their opportunities.   "When the condition  of some of thc bands in this agency is compared  with what it was twenty years ago," thc writer  says, '"the retrogression  is  only  too  apparent.  This does not seem to he due to any onc cause,  but to a combination of causes, and the greatest1  of all is firewater."  her the truer freedom, to inspire her with a real  ideal of nationhood.

Write the Dairy Commissioner, Ottawa,  for milk record forms."  PLEA FOR INCREASED PRODUCTION  For two ycars and a half, war, red and ruinous  has raged through the world, and slill no decision  has been reached. There is reason lo hope that  before 1017 closes thc struggle I'or liberty will  have been won, or bc greatly advanced. Amid lhe  varying phases of lhis titanic conflict the fact  stands out clearer lhan ever that agricullurc  is of supreme importance. Extraordinary measures are being taken'by thc allied countries to increase and encourage production. II is earnestly  hoped that every farmer in Canada will strive to  increase the food supply of the Empire. A slill  powerful and unscrupulous enemy openly avows  its intention to try and sink all ships carrying supplies to England during the coming year. In the  tremendous strain yet lo come a vital factor will  hc an ample and unfailing flow of food to England and France. No matter what difficulties may  face us the supreme duty of every man on thc land  is to use every thought and every energy in the  direction of producing more, and still more.���������������������������  Martin Burrcll, Minister of Agriculture.  "God Bless the Ladies"  Writing from thc front, Sapper C. G. Piper  says: "Will you please convey my heartiest  thanks to, the friends in Enderby who so kindly  contributed to the parcel I received hvAl condition a few days ago. I have been travelling  around some since November, hence the delay  in receiving it. Thc cakes were in splendid condition and lhc other articles.were a most careful  collection. I say, God bless thc ladies! From  Vancouver to Halifax, and from one end of the  counlry to thc other lhcy are making greal sacrifices and doing their level best to give thc boys a  taste of home, and wc appreciate it very much.  Many of us will bc mighty glad to sec little old  Enderby again. Leah, tell you it looks good from .  here.. I think myself the fact of the boys from  Canada-., being over here is one, of'ihe biggest"  boosts, the dominion has.had, and there, will bc^  lols of fresh blood there after the war- is over." y ;  Sir. John Simon, a former attorney-general lor'  Great Britain, after-taking three weeks to'^look.  into.the mailer, has decided that all b.dlols polled"  in thc deferred \oting by soldiers on the Prohibition question must bc counted.    He thus has  disallowed the contention of the 'drys' that, some  2'100 votes cast hy thc soldier j were invalid.   II"  the Prohibitionists had succeeded in having these  2000 soldiers' votes thrown.jjul, it would have  left no doubt.bul what.Prohibition had carried.  We cannot always choose our surroundings  lhat they bc congenial, but wc can lend a hand  in making them bearable���������������������������and grow.  When you.have learned to rely upon yourself  for support and happiness, you have learned one  of life's greatest lessons.  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.

The proposition is lhat  seed will be given, and instruction  furnished to anyone who will agree  to plant and bring the weed to  maturity, and an agreement will bc  cnlered into to lake the crop at  the highest market price for a  period of five years.  in this connection lhc Dominion  Department of Agriculture journal  says: "After thc small tobacco crop  of 191G, it is lo be expected that  the manufacturers' demand for  Canadian tobaccos will be keener  and more widespread than heretofore. This si dial ion oilers an excellent inducement for lhc development of tobacco-growing in all  those parts of Canada where the  crop can bc successfully grown.  Tobacco requires a soil well  drained,   rather    light,   deep   and  Sir Thomas White, minister of  finance, has given' out Ihe following slalemenl: "The progress of the  in the former seclion, the British ! lllird(.
