IMPORTANCE OF THE PRESS  'fhe newspapers of this country and of Europe  are doing more to win the war lhan mosl people  imagine, 'fhe newspaper holds a peculiar position. I! is the mouthpiece of the governments  in power, in the broader sense, just as it is the  medium through which the individual or lhe  eommunitv has of gelling complaints lo the government. "And in lhe mailer of keeping up the  heart of the people and also drawing lhe alien-  lion of the government lo weaknesses in the nek  ministration from the people's point ofview, lhe  newspaper which is honest in ils criticism and  has the courage of ils convictions, is of inestimable value lo lhe community.    And lhe war has  The annual report of the Government Telegraph Service for 1910 proves thc contention of  The Pi-ess, that thc paralleling of the Okanagan  Telephone Company's lines by the Government  system in thc Okanagan is a very costly venture  and one that rcllecls little credit upon thc Department responsible for thc construction of the  paralleling line. II is this sort of waste of public  funds which brings odium upon government-  owned public utilities. What would you say of  an individual who would haul a load of hay inlo  Enderby billed for Vernon or points south, and  refused lo use thc railway bul drove on lo lhc  point of destination because hc would be pulling  business inlo llie railway company's hands. He  would be classed as a fool, would he not? Yet  this is .precisely lhc position assumed. by the  Department in control of the Government Telegraph Service. It refuses lo connect up with thc  complete syslcm of lhe Okanagan Telephone Co.,  and lhc only excuse given is tha- lo do so would  make llie Government telephone line a "feeder"  for lhe local company. Such a-contention, is, of  course, ridiculous- Whal aboul the Okanagan  Telephone Company's lines being "feeders" for  lhe Government lines.-The local company has a  complete system covering lhe district, lt has upwards of 2000 phone subscribers who could bc  switched lo !hc Government lines, whereas, thc  Government lines lap only outlying districts and  give no service excepting from lhc calling stations, whither a person must go-if hc desires to  use thc government line. On lhc olher hand, if  the Government would co-opera le with lhe local  company instead of attcmpilng lo break inlo ils  business, and would accept lhc schedule of exchange rnf.-s drawn up by Superintendent  Stevens himself and incorporated in the agreement drawn up by the Okanagan company, every  user of lhc governmcnl line could then be pul in  direct touch wilh every one of the local company's subscribers, which would mean a com-  |7luiTrttWj]ycrativc^sei>viceras-iOj)|3osc(Ulo=lhe^pres--  ent half-service over the government lines. According to llie annual report of the Government  Telegraph Service the cosl of .maintaining these  telephone stations in the Okanagan at points  covered by Ihe local company's system, amounts  lo $8,304* per year. Virtually all of this cost  could be eliminated by giving the governmcnl  lines connection wilh lhe local company's -telethon o exchangps-Vi L_eonv.crging_.... .p.cin!s,_: The.  charge of 5c for giving connection over the Okanagan system would be far less cosily lo lhe Government and would give a complete service.

SUNSHINE SERMONS  Cheerful Guidance to a Happier, Healthier Life  By the Philo������������������opher-Physician  GEORGE F. BUTLER, A. M., M. D.  It is really astonishing how  few people there are who properly estimate the value of the  tun's rays. A valuable lesson  on this point may be learned  by observing the lower animals,  none of which ever neglect an  opportunity to bask In the sun.  And the nearer man approaches  to the primitive condition, the  more he is inclined to follow the  example of the animals. It le  ��������������������������� natural Instinct, which clvlll-  utlen has partially destroyed In  the human race. The effect of  sunshine is not merely thermal;  Its rays have chemical and eleo-.  trleal functions. It Is more  than possible that sunshine pro-  ducee vibrations and changes of  particles In the deeper tissues  ef the body as effective as those  of electricity. Many know by  experience that the relief It affords to wearing pain, neuralglo  arid Inflammatory, is more'effective and more lasting than  that ef any application whatever. These who have' face-  ache should prove It for themselves, sitting in a sunny window, where* the warmth falls  full en the cheek. For nervous..  disability and sleeplessness the  treatment ef all others is rest  In the eunshlne.  -S-'jl  . '.'I  ���������������������������-'ll  (Cop/rtf bfc w$, by W. G. Chapman.)

Enderby  PREVENTION OF COAL SHORTAGE  The past winter wc have had a coal shortage,  and that suffering has accompanied the shortage  in some quarters is undeniable. The average person has a notoriously short memory. Thc first  day or two of spring weather and he.forgets all  about thc hardships that arc pasl, and makes no  preparation for next winter until thc first snow  comes. He then looks up the coal man. If, for  any cause, there is a shortage of coal, he finds the  coal dealer cannot supply him. The winter of his  discontent then begins, and stays with, him until  the following spring. Had he purchased his coal  in thc summer or early autumn, he would have  experieiced no hardship, and the coal shortage  would not have been felt. The thing for users of  coal in Enderby to do is to buy coal in the summer and have it delivered then. Not order it in  the summer for fall delivery. Enlarge the coal  bin and lay in a supply early in the summer.  There is another "crisis" in, the British cabinet  over the Irish question. Between the bull-  headedncss of John Bull and the hot-headedness  of the Irish, the problem is like thc Scotchman's  itch.  PLEA FOR INCREASED PRODUCTION  "Old Chadwick," for many years proprietor  of the Deer Lodge Hotel, Winnipeg, died suddenlf  at his home on March 9th. He was onc of the  best known westerners, and boasted forty years'  residence in the great wheat-belt metropolis.  For two years and a half, war, red and ruinous  has raged through thc world, and still no decision  has been reached. There is reason to hope lhat  "before 1917 closes thc struggle for liberty will  have been won, or be-greatly advanced. Amid thc  varying phases of this titanic conflict thc facl  stands out clearer than ever that agriculture  is of supreme importance. Extraordinary measures are being taken by thc allied countries to increase and encourage production. It is earnestly  hoped that every farmer in Canada will strive to  increase the food supply of the Empire. A still  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 to come a vital factor will  be 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 the land  is to use every thought and every energy in the  direction of producing more, and still more.���������������������������  Martin Burrell, Minister of Agriculture.  Add as a prefix the letter "s" to your praying  and see what an improvement it will bring to  your orchard.  What a pity that the truth is thc most disagreeable thing one can say about thc war!  ���������������������������  The average man thinks hc has argued a case  when he otters to bet that hc is right.  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 !

A-scries  of   facis  were  given   selling  forth  lhe   many-sided   service   rendered,  on   the  Irasports, in  the camps in  England   ancl   in   London,. and*, in j  various  parts of Ihe war zone oil]  lhe   Western   front.     The   nearest''  canteen is approximately -ten miles!  behind Ihe fi'-ing line.    In this belt  of lhe battle zone  len  miles wide,  and   extending   from-lhe   English  Channel   lo  Switzerland,  Ihe  work  of  caring  I'or  tiie  soldier  bovs  is  lefl in lhe hands of the-Y.M.C.

In  all  these   huts   coffee  ancl   sandwiches  are served   to  the  men when  they  require it whether they pay for il  or not, and. he said, all these Y.M.

No mailer where these tents or  dugouts are located- they always  are ready to provide warmth and  someriiiif' to cut for the boys, tired  in most cases after long hours of  service in the trenches. Thc boys  look upon the Association as Iheir  best friend.   As one put it, "Were it  sure of gcMling  from .which to  pictures,    you  longer   making  heavy  secure  I  and  it  w  seal you  se greal  guarantee  the  see Ih  should    not  your  selecti  had lo be  desire  war  de  rom London- Strangely, per-  j'iiaps, our Canadian papers do nol lake kindly lo  lhe proposition.

A few days ago it was stated from London that  the mailer was being taken up with lhc Canadian  ministers now lhere. It is stated that thc pro:  posa'ls* of. the committee for this means of liquidating 'the Emphc's war debt has been mosl favorably received by lhe British public.  Perhaps wc of Canada cannol see thc proposition in the same light as the promoters put il.  Perhaps in this wc are wrong. Perhaps wc arc  not.wrong. Thc population of Canada is, say  eight millions. Wc are contracting a war debt  at the rate of a million dollars a day. Every week  lhat passes sees lhe debt mount up at the rale of  one dollar for every man, woman ancl child in Uic  Dominion, or, say six dollars a week for the head  of every family. Fully one half thc population  of Canada arc dependent upon farming opera-  lions for support.

The Somme pictures so vividly depict actual war conditions that  they are said to bear heavily upon  the~ heart, and an effort will be  made to lighten the ordeal, while  at the same time not detracting  from the lesson these war pictures  are put on to leach.  BAGDAD IN BRITISH HANDS  The. capture of Bagdad, the historic cily of Calips, famed in Oriental legends nnd the tales of the  Arabian Nights, has set ail .Britain  on lire with rejoicing over one of  the mosl striking triumphs of the  war. The fall of Ihe citadel, under  onslaught of the British forces  commanded by General Maude, is  hailed by military critics in Eng-  i;.i.";'s "revenge for Townsend's  defeat."  GOOD  OUTLOOK FOR   TOBACCO  There is an unprecedented demand for tobacco, and the price lo  the grower of nexl season's -crop j  promises to be very profitable. A  representative of American tobacco;  interests, Mr. S. Baxter, was in tiie j  Okanagan lasl week and while here  pui\;nased the entire crop cut from  30 acres the pi;sl*������������������season by Mr. L.  Holman, llie pioneer lobr.cco man  of Kelowna. lie also contracted lo  take  lhe  entire  crop  to  be  grown  estcd Imperial war debt farm.  Suppose the "Government of Canada, should  say to the farmers of Canada, Here, men, wc are  going to establish a Dominion farm in order to  pay oil' lhis war debt we are-now. contracting  at the rale of a million-dollars a day, and'wc are  going to employ on lhal farm the hordes of  cheap labor that will he obtainable in Europe at  the close of lhe war. We. are going to produce  wheal and oilier grains which you now produce.  We will give lhe produce of lhc Dominion farm  "preferential treatment", and you* will have to  compete in the open market wilh the product of  the Dominion farm. Let us suppose Premier  Borden were to come to lhe people of Canada  and lay such a proposition before Ihem. What  answer would hc gel? Unless we arc greatly  mistaken, he would bc told in no unmistakable  words that lhe farmers of Canada were not responsible for the debts of the war, and thai lhcy  did not propose lo bear the burden of more than  their share of thc debt. They would tell him to  go into thc (lour milling business as well, and to  go into thc banking business, and thc manufacturing business generally. They would tell him  to build telegraph lines and railway lines, and to  enter all lines of general business in competition  wilh private interests now operating.  That is whal the people of Canada would tell  Premier Borden. And lhat is what the people of  Canada will Icll the promoters of thc Imperial  war debt farm when il comes lo a show-down.  Canada has stood loyally by the Motherland in  this supreme struggle. She.has done it as an  independent, self-governing cplony. Canada is  not and has no desire to be a vassal slate. And  thai is precisely whal thc result would be if the  farmers of Canada were forced lo go into competition with an Imperial war debt farm run and  operated binder European .conditions. It would  be transplanting to Canadian soil lhc serf conditions of life in thc war-swept lands. We have  confidence in our statesmen. We feci sure they  will find a more equitable way lo clear oil' lhc  war debt of Canada and thc Empire-.  this season  acres.
