 Enderby, B. C, February 22, 1917  AND      WALKER'S       WEEKLY  ' Vol. 9; No. 52;   Whole No. 452  Enderby and District'  harvest is being cut  The quality is second  .������������������*  The ice  this week,  grade.  Mrs. Bloomenaur, of New Denver, passed away a few clays ago  at Nelson.  Corp. Tom Robinson spent the  week-end with his family, returning to his post Saturday evening.' ^ >:  W. J. Woods' home-cured hams  and bacon are in demand. His  output this winter is about four  tons.       ,.  Joe Doerflinger has leased the  10-acre farm of Jas. Ellison, at  Mara, which he will operate this  year.  Wm.  Witala drove a team of  light work-horses in from Mara  last .Thursday morning, and sold  ���������������������������them for $375. ' "  '"  "    Mr.- Geo. Bell occupied the .pulpit in the Presbyterian church  Sunday evening, speaking on be-  .. half of the layman's missionary  movement. *.  Q.-M. Sgt. Barnes is enjoying  a prolonged furlough at his home  from the military camp at Vernon, owing" to a serious break in  his health.  - Clarence Patterson, of Boise-  vain, Man., arrived in Enderby  on Saturday to spend a few  weeks with his grandfather, Mr.  J. S. Johnstone.  The cold spell of the past few  days has greatly improved the  roads and is just what the teamsters hauling logs to the sawmill  required to get the winter's cut  ^ihTxTthV water."  The March revision of the Okanagan telephone directory will  be out about the 15th! If you  want your name on the new list  application should be made by  the 1st of the month.  A horse-buyer was in from the  Northwest this week. He was  prepared to buy ten carloads if  the horses were to be had. He  said it was quite impossible to  supply the demand for horses on  the prairie farms.  Another De Wolf Hopper feature film was shown at the Opera  House before an appreciative audience. Another interesting feature was a Ford educational film  telling the" story of Canada's  prolific wheat harvest.  Rev. Mr. Curry left for Victoria  last Thursday to join the Medical  corps for Overseas. The following arrangements have been  made for supply of the Methodist  pulpit to the end of the conference year: First Sunday in March  April, May ancl June, Mr. Welch;  second Sunday, Rev. R. Lee, of  Armstrong; third Sunday, union  service in Presbyterian Church;  fourth Sunday, union service in  Baptist Church.  It is now. conceded that the  soldiers' vote has defeated the  Prohibition measure voted on at  the last election. TI13 Prohibition leaders are now attempting  to get a bill through the coming-  session of the legislature prohii -  iting the sale of liquor while the  war lasts. Most people are prepared to stand by the result of  plebiscite.  Will Buy Produce  The announcement in this issue  of The Press by J. E. Crane that  he is in the field, to' buy all kinds  of farm iDroduce, ��������������������������� should be very  welcome-news, particularly for  the small producer who has experienced considerable difficulty  in the past in finding a ready  market. Mr. Crane is a pioneer,  resident of the district, and  knows the heeds- of the market  and where to find what the market needs. He:intends to act"for  the farmers" in- dealing direct  with .the coast market. By taking ���������������������������sma,lL quantities as. well.,as  carload'lots, Mr. Crane believes,  he will be able to render, a much  needed service to the growers of  the locality. ���������������������������  Hospital Meeting  The public meeting in the City  Hall last Friday evening, called  to. elect members on the new  hospital board, was attended by  only a few citizens. Rev. J, A.  Dow, as chairman ' of the ' old  board, which has served so faith-  fulls the past year or more, took  the chair and briefly explained  the object of the meeting.' Mr.  Davies, as secretary of the board  laid before the meeting the constitution of the new board, to-  gether with the "papers of incorporation. Jt was explained that  the board -had been duly incorporated under the Hospitals Aid  Act. Under .this Act, one member of the board is appointed by  the Government, two by the City  and four are elected by the members. The, board as thus composed then elects officers from  the directors so appointed.,  The following were' named by  the meeting: Mrs.- Reeves; Miss  Gibbsr-'>rV,-lCeitif:and't-"H:fG.-  Davies. Rev. J.. A. Dow has  been named as the Government  member.  , The. members to be  -   1  named by the City are yet to be  appointed.  It was explained that th'rby  the membership roll, -each  whom has paid the annual fee of  $1. The amount of these fees had  been applied in payment of current accounts. There was still a  balance of $44 indebtedness to be  taken over by the new board.  It was decided to make application to the Government for assistance .provided for .under the  Act, and the matter was left in  the hands of Dr. Keith ancl Mr.  Davies to prepare the necessary  reports.  It was decided that a whist  drive shall be held to. raise funds  to meet the indebtedness taken  over by the new', board."' -The  date for this entertainment was  set for Friday-; (to-morrow)-"eve_-  ning, but-as other events are. on  for that" evening, the date is to  be set by the committee.     .   ' -  Trench' Comforts  - Isj there any-ambition more noble  than to bc a producer of the necessaries of life when the Empire is  calling for food!  Undue leniency on the part of the Government in the matter of .collecting school  taxes in unorganized district's, has made \i  extremely difficult for school trustees in  these localities to keep the schools running.  Their borrowings for school purposes have  had to be made on the credit of the trustees  -themselvespthe-GovernnTent^affordingTio-  relief whatever for school taxes uncollected.  This matter came up at a recent meeting  of the Southern B. C. Weekly Section of the  C. P. A., and a resolution passed calling on  the Government, to hold annual sales_ of  lands in arrears for taxes, thus ensuring  ample revenues for the handling of the unorganized district schools.  There are moments when one wants to be  alone. This is one of them. The motor  that makes the wheels go round in the Press  plant couldn't get rid of its water this week  owing to drainage .troubles, and we have  had to resort to hand-setting to get the  paper out, Too little water is a baa thing.  Too much water is worse. We'll have a new  drainage system installed this week.  Ultimately the diplomats of the world  must resort to an appeal to reason to settle  the great conflict for supremacy, but there  can be no appeal to reason while our warlords demand the mastery shall be settled  by brute force.  When a man works and grows tired, he  can enjoy rest. But he who does not work  does not get tired and does not enjoy the  rest and is always tired���������������������������and makes the  rest tired.  Europe is an awful disease.  Some local merchants Jiave a habit of bemoaning the large moil order business done  in their district, but themselves do' very  little advertising in their local papers. ��������������������������� It  might be well to direct the attention of any  such io the statement reported to have been  made recently by the manager of a large  mai 1-ordert ouser^' We���������������������������naTe^avbuTWCt;"  said he, "whose dnty it is to read the  country papers. There is not a paper of any  consequence in our territory we do not get.  The bureau looks over these papers and  when we find a town where the merchants  do not advertise in the local' papers,- or  where advertisers do not change their advertisements regularly, we immediately  flood that section with literature. It always  drings results far in excess of the same  effort put forth in territory where the local  merchants use the local papers."  The slogan for 1917 is "Grow Something!"  Grow, grow, grow! Food is needed. Ifre-  3or,s are to be believed, there is not much  ikelihood of the submarine blockade being  effective enough to tie up shipping from  Canada to the Allies, therefore there should  be an unlimited deman for all we can raise  at high prices. The demand for farm labor  is sure to exceed the supply. This will mean  a limited crop in districts which have been  the heaviest producers. It is Okanagan's  opportunity as well as duty.  And now Teddy Roosevelt threatens to  organize an army all his own and go over  to France to clean up the enemy! Tne Germans are already moving the Rhine back.  And co-operation is the only cure for the  European plague���������������������������at home or abroad.  The Trench Comfort Club sent  -i 4.0 j boxes of seven pounds each to  0f j the following Enderby boys serving in France,' this week: Ptes.  C F. Oland, W. Garratt, P.

It is only in isolated cases that we see the effort made to parallel  an existing telephone line which is giving public  service. All such efforts have ultimately resulted  in failure. It has been proved in many instances  that the only perfect system of communication  in a district is by the unified system. Several systems operating in different parts of a district has  invariably led to confusion and poorer service,  whereas, the bringing of oil telephone users in  any one district under one system has resulted in  every instance in improved service and greater,  satisfaction. For this reason it is difficult to understand thc policy of the Dominion telegraph  management in breaking into a district such as  the Okanagan where good, telephone service has  been given for a number-of ycars by the Okanagan Telephone Company, and attempting to be  of public, service by paralleling lines already in  operation.

A year ago this  company had in use some 30,975 instruments,  while today there are not less tliah 42,572. ' ' '  Thus is the Province rapidly becoming unified  under a single telephone system. The Okanagan  Telephone Company, while independent of the  coast organization,, is operated under the same  system, and eventually the'Okanagan will be able  to talk anywhere over the B. C.

The  issue of war saving certificates maturing in three ycars, in denonun-  alions of  825,  850  and   8100,  will  meet the requirements of the man  with a small savings account.    Certificates of these denominations are  obtainable   on   application   to   any  bank or postal money order office.  The prices are 821.50, 8-13 and 880  respectively;   lhat  is   to   say,   for  $21.50 lent now 16. the Government  $25 will be returned al the end of  three ycars; for $'13 lent now, $50  will be returned, and  for $86 lent  now $100 will bc returned; which  means interest, on your  money  at  the rale of 5 per cent, wilh no "risk  of losing and no cost in thc transaction.    Provision  is made whci'c-  by thc certificates may be surrendered at any time during the first 12  months  at   their   purchase  price;  after   12   months,    but   within    2<1  months,  at  $22.25;    and    after   24  months  but  wilhin   3(5   months,   at  $23.25  for every $21.50 lent.    Thc  plan is designed lo give lhe general  public lhc opportunity of contributing-by their savings to thc winning of lhe war, and  at the same  time lo encourage and promote individual    thrift   and   economy   in  every   class   ot   individual   in   the  Dominion.  Alpha Bcler, Railroad Telegrapher  Last evening ] was talking  With a printer aged and gray,  Who told me of a dream he had  Just after Christmas day���������������������������  While a-snoozing in his office  The vision came lo view;  He saw an angel enter, dressed  In garments white and new.  Said the spirit, "I'm from heaven;  The Lord just sent me down  To bring you up lo glory;  Pul on your golden crown.  "Many    merchanls    you've    made  richer,  (Prom few received full pay);  While  you've   grown    poorer  and  poorer,  Your business did decay.  "So we need you up in glory,  For you have labored hard  Until your brow is hoary���������������������������  You've earned a great reward."  o  Then the angel and the printer  Started toward thc glory gate:  But when passing close lo hades  The angel murmured "Wail���������������������������  "Here's a nook I wish lo show you:  It's the hottest place in hell,  Where    the    dubs    who   heal   lhe  printer  In awful torment dwell."  The printer saw before him  Old patrons by the score;  An easy chair and fan hc grabbed,  And asked for nothing more.  Hc sat and sat and watched them,  Saw them sizzle,.scorch and burn;  And his former debtors saw him  Whichever way he'd turn.  Said Ihe angel: "Come up higher,  And the pearly gates we'll sec."  Bul Ihe printer'only, answered���������������������������  "This is heaven enough for me."  At 9'1 ycars of age a  Springs man has taken  bride.  Colorado  his ��������������������������� fifth  THE YELLOW STREAK  The  bigger  a   man   the less his  wife, ncecd be afraid of him.  Are your  Butter Wraps  running low?  Better order some now  With a pocket full of money  Any coward can he brave;  When the sky 's bright and sunny  Any man his (lag can wave.  But the test of every fellow  Is disaster's sudden blow,  And if he 's streaked with yellow  It is then that it will show.  You will never find a quitter  If he's leading in the race;  It is when tbe light grows bitter  And another makes the pace  That the coward starts lo bellow  And lo whimper at his woe;  If a man is streaked.with yellow  When he 's pressed it 's sure to  show.  Can you .stand the gafl' of losing,  Can you battle to the end;  Take the cu fling' and the bruising  And not let your courage bend?  For lhc lest of pluck is never  When you're leading in the race,  But are you game as ever  When another sets the pace?
