Donald Brown has enlisted in  the Foresters as bugler.  "Mrs. Sewell and Mrs. McLeod returned to Enderby last week.  Ptc. Jas. Ellison is spending a  few days' leave at his home near  Enderby.  Mrs. Gorle and children leave for  Vancouver this week, where they  will join Mr. Gorle.  A daughter was born to Mr. and  Mrs. Russcl Thompson, of Silver-  ton, B.C., on April 30th.  The name of Ptc. D. A. Terhune,  who enlisted from ' Enderby, was  reported ijii the casualty list this  week, as wounded.  ' Messrs. Mack & Rands have sold  "Fords to E. B. Dill, H. McKee and  0. Olson, with three or four more  to be sold this month.  Mrs. J. E. Bogert received ,word  this week froni her son, Pte. Victor  Bogert, who was reported wounded  last week, ��������������������������� lhat he -had won' the  military medal.  - Wm. Witala, ��������������������������� of Mara, recently  sold lo Jas. Campbell twenty acres  of valuable land, located on thc old  Wm. Long-property. The price" put  on the land was- $150 an acre.  A meeting of'the Trench Comfort Club will be held in the City  Hall Tuesday, May 8th, at 3 p.m. to  arrange for the sending of another  round of parcels to the boys in the  Irenches.  _The meeting of the Woman's  Club ancl Voters' League, held in  K. of P. Hall last Saturday afternoon, was. well attended, ancl some  fifty names were added lo the list  as members.  Word has been received from  Ottawa by Robt. Roberts that the  report appearing in a coast paper  stating that his brother, Ptc. Sam  Roberts, had died of wounds, is  without ��������������������������� foundation. -  Accord ing to tlie records^kept  by Mr. Kenny for the meteorological department, the rainfall at  Enderby for April was 2.23 inches.  At Vancouver the precipitation I'or  the month amounted to over eight  inches. . j  Here is a chance: Sam M. Bliss  advertises   in   the   Glen   Campbell,  Pa., News, lhal he has for sale or,  trade 12 Big Potatoes, in exchange  I'or city propery or will trade on aj  Ford   car,   the   parly   owning   the |  car to pay the difference. I  The many friends of Arthur  Tomkinson, of Grindrod, will regret to learn that owing to ill  health, he has found it necessary  to dispose of his saw .mill machinery and threshing outfit. Me  has been advised to lake an absolute rest I'or six months or longer.  There has been organized in  New York a company to acquire  and exploit what has become to bc  known as the "Heminings Process"  of preserving various perishable  commodities, such as non-alcoholic  beverages, milk and dairy pro-j  ducts, fruits, meats, fish, etc., and  J. M. Robinson, of Okanagan fame,  has been made financial manager.  Thc name of Ll. M. A. Buckncll  is the last to be added to the list of  killed in action from this district.  Lieut. Bucknell enlisted from Mara  early in the war, but on reaching  England transferred to an Old  Country regiment. He had no  relatives in this country, having  come here as a portage of Major  Langdon,  wilh  whom  he  resided.  The Trail News thinks "with the  present high cosl of paper governments could make no little saving  on the tons of reports and documents sent out���������������������������which most recipients never even open," and il  says that while the reports "are  necessary, of course, prodigal distribution is uncalled for and  amounts to sheer waste, when conservation is in order."  Homer Williams, who won the  plaudits of all baseball fans in the  Okanagan a few years ago when hc  was a member of the crack Vernon  team, is' now on the yard staff of  the Okanagan Saw Mills. It used  to be the case when Homer was  seen around that everybody got the  baseball bug���������������������������but that was before  the war. Today there isn't room  under anyone's hat* for anything  except the lire-bug of Mars.  COURT OF REVISION  At the   sitting   of   the Court of  Revision   last -Friday   evening   to  hear .protests  against  the  tax   assessment,' only-.four   cases   were  filed, that against the'value put, on  tbe'Enderby-'Hotel   property,-.that  by   the   Columbia   Flouring' Mills,  that by Mrs. J. A. Mohr and that  by J. A. Gilroy.   In the case of thc  Enderby Hotel  property, a reduction of. $500 was made on the land  values   and' a   cut  of   -$1,000   was  made   on   the   improvements,   the j  totals assessment    being    reduced I  in the amount of $1,500.    It was!  discovered, further, that a certain'  portion of the properly had been,  assessed to the owner of the hotel |  which in reality was held by the'  C.P.R. on a prior deed.   Thc value'  of this portion was placed at -$600.  This amount was taken off, lowering the assessment from -$15,030 to  -$12,930.  In the case of thc Columbia  Flouring^lills^the^courV-madc=-a  cut of 10 per cent on the assessed  value of the improvements. |  Tn the appeal of Mrs. Mohr and  that of Mr.  Gilroy the  court  sus-'  tanied  Ihe  value  placed-upon  the  properties  by  the  assessor. i  TRENCH   COMFORTS   COMFORT  Thc ladies of the Trench Com-  fort Club are in receipt of the following letters from Enderby boys  in France, which speaks volumes  for the good work the club is doing in carrying to the boys some  lillle thing direct from the hearts  and hands of home people:  Ptes.   Gordon   Duncan,   Fred   A.  Johnson and Leslie Mackay join in  saying: "We received your parcels  a few days ago, in good condition,  and we certainly do appreciate  your kindness. What was eatable  we enjoyed very much, and the sox  -certainly will come in good. We  are all in good health, and awfully  glad that spring is here."  Pie. J. E". Pacey: "T" received the  lovely parcel yesteulay which the  Enderby Trench Comfort Club and  friends were so kind-to send mc,  and 1' thank you one and all for  your kindness. A parcel, with home  cooking is very acceptable indeed  out here and'I enjoyed it. I forgot  to mention' that the Canadians arc  "driving Fritz.for all.they are worlh  lit present."   -  v y *  - Here is -a letter typical of that  lovable boy "Jack" * McMahon: "I  don't know whether to make, this  a friendly letter or'a'''strictly^busi:"  ness'onc, but i'.can certainly thank'  you for the nice parcel I received  a few d'ays-'ago. It is very nice to  receive a parcel once in a while  "when you are a lang, lang way  from hamc."- I am on a draft for  France once more and expect to  leave Tuesday morning, and to  I show you my appreciation I ask  j you not to forget Jack when you  send the next bunch of parcels." I  have just had six days leavc,which  I enjoyed to the fullest extent. Of  course (as is -generally thc case  with mc) there is a girl in the  case. Besl regards to everyone.  Some business letter!" |  Pte. L. Funk: "Just a few lines  to let you know I. received the  parcel you sent on Feb. 17th, and  [ can tell you it certainly received  a great welcome. The cookies  and cake were delicious, also the  Oxq. I_don'l chew tobacco myself  "OT t-tlie rcrm-crlnt snfrl ~lh"c_b*"oys iTcrc*-  w'*������������������o do, so I gave it to llvm.' In  order to avoid a scrap I had to cut  the plug of chewing in six pieces,  The Spearmint and ei^arctts I enjoyed myself. After I opened the  parcel, divded the eatables and put  the pair of socks in my kit, I says,  "here's-for a good smoke."' And I  don'l know whether it was just  because the tobacco came from  Enderby or not, but it certainly  was ton-notch. Thanks ever so  much for thc parcel. The boys  thai shared it wilh me talso send  their thanks. I am the only Ender-  byilc "in- this battalion. Yesterday  I saw some of the 172nd boys but  couldn't, or .haven't as yet, seen  any of'the Enderby boys." -  Pie. S. H.Allcorn: "Just a line to  thank you very much indeed for  the parcel received which, came  as a very pleasant surprise' and  was much appreciated. I am "glad  lo.say thai-everything arrived in  splendid condition, and I must say  that it.seems real good to get a  parcel from Canada, for they seem  lo have a good idea of what the  boys want out here. The assortment is real line, not forgetting  the plug of chewing. Everyone  here raves over it.x I hardly know  how lo thank you good people  sufficiently for your kindness, .as  it's real nice of-you. And your  parcels come when one is-not expecting them, which also adds to  the pleasure. Yesterday . wc had  quite a fall -of-snow, much to^ our  disgust, as wc are expecting some  good weather. Today the snow" is  disappearing'   pretty,   quick,   s.b   il  may be the breaking up of the bad  weather." vWcV.eVt'a.inly, have,some  mud out here, but'1 am glad'"to sa*y*  that I manage to keep very well,  and still manage to keep- out of  danger's way, and- T hope I may  continue to do so, fori am longing  I for the time lo come back to good  old   Canada,' especially  B.C."  Pte. J. D.-Nichol: "Just a line in  acknowledgment of your parcel,  which came to hand Ihis evening.  Thc boys in our section, including  myself, wish lo convey our thanks  to you and the kind ladies of tbe  Trench Comfort Club for their  kindness in thinking of us while  over here. All is; not sunshin'e  here, and we are all looking forward, lo the time when we will return home to our friends and  relatives, but, as yel, we have not  accomplished what wc came over  for. but are waiting for the time,  and it will not be long, when Fritz  .will.know .whaLwe come oyerjor.,'.

Famine and Want Facing the World  lion for our winter-wheat crop  ���������������������������foreshadowing reduction of  52.000,000 bushels, and probably much more., even from lhe  unsatisfactory yield of 19.1.6���������������������������  the food problem has been  taken up in earnest. Every effort, is being put forth by agricultural interests, bankers, ancl  businessmen, as well as by the  Government, to stimulate production of grains and other  foodstuffs. It is absolutely essential that the Uniled Slates  and Canada in the next twelve  months should supply the Allies  with large quantities of grain  and provisions. The virtual failure of the crop in Argentina  and the prohibition of wheat  and flour exports from that  countiy, with reduction from  early expectations in the harvest  of Australia, make lhe situation most critical. In the season ending July last, out of 113,-  920,000 bushels of wheat and  flour shipped hy all exporting  countries outside of the United  Slates and Canada, 99,376,00  bushels came from Argentina  ancl Australasia.''  Let us not mistake the cry of  the times. Famine and want  are facing the world. Famine  and want are facing America.  Famine and want are lacing us  at home as well as the peoples  ol" Europe.  And what are we doing to  avert it? Are we doing all that  can be done? Are we doing  anything at all out of the ordinary to avert it?  In Canada we see no organized effort whatever to increase  the food supply. The Government has, it is true, conducted  a splendid publicity campaign  to encourage production, but  no organized effort has been  made looking to the proper  carrying out of the work.  In the States the response to  the call for more food has been  one of deeds rather than words.  From all sections come reports  of organized movements to increase the crop-acreage, to enlist men and boys in "the army  of the plow," and to supply the  farmer, with capital for intensive cultivation. In Philadelphia  a  "recruiting  station  for  farmers' helpers" welcomes all  iwho wish to enroll in thc President's 'service army,' and sends  1 them to big grain sections of the  .Northwest to assist in planting  the spring wheat and rye. The  appeal for volunteers states that  "25,000,000 acres of spring  wheat ancl rye must be planted  in the great grain belt of: the  Northwest within the next 25  days," and explains that "this  represents an increase of more  than 7,000,000 acres over last  year." A Chicago dispatch  tells of six thousand boys above  the age of 16 released from the  high schools of that city with  full credit for schoolwork for  the remainder of the school  year on condition that they  pledge themselves to work on  farms or enter some employment that will increase the food  supply of the nation.  Although wheat is not the  only short crop, this staple represents the most acute problem, says the Literary Digest.  And in a Chicago dispatch we  read: "Since crop reports show  the worst recorded April condi-  '    MILITARY Y. M. C A.

MAY 3,  191.7  IN THE FIGHT TO STAY  There is something admirable, in lhc sane,  business-like way in which Uncle Sam is going  into lhis war. There is no panic, no excitement,  no systematic drumming up of haired of lhc  enemy, no llag-waving ancl Hinging of defiance  a I lhe Germans. There is that quiet reserve, denoting power and a full' consciousness of" the  magnitude ol* the task undertaken. According lo  a Washington dispatch the United Stales has  given ils word lhal it will fight in conjunction  with lhc Allies until Prussian autocracy is  crushed and Americans al home and abroad are  safe from thc rnthlessncss of thc Berlin government. This was made known at lhc first conference between the Rl.-Hon. A. .1. Balfour and  President Wilson and his advisers. And, having  thus decided, the nexl move is lo prepare to undertake lhc work decided upon. In order lo do  this acceptably, Mr. Balfour ancl stall' of ex-  perls were summoned from England, ancl from  France, General Joll'cr and olher governmcnl  ministers and skill' ollicers, in order to get from  Ihem precise information upon the multitude of  military ancl economic questions concerning  which these ollicials are qualified lo speak from  experience.  And the first Ihing demanded by lhc American  ...^(.).y.^'.1'!'!I.1.1.c!.~1.i~n..������������������t deman_< 1 eel, bu[ suggested���������������������������is  The'cleaning up ol'TlieVAlIiccl camp. First, there  came lhe democratization of Russia, and, as Ihe  result of thai change, according lo lhe Minister  of .Justice of lhc new Russian governmcnl,  "Russia-wanIs peace on lhc,terms proposed by  President \YTilson. The revolution and lhe entrance of the Uniled Stales in lhe war have  somewhat changed lhe objects for which we arc  lighting. We waul peace'restored without an-  i icxa I -ion -or iiidcnmiiy, andfavor --a- conference  wilh the Allies lo delermine how lhis can be attained." Turning lo England, wc see a selllcmcnl  of lhe Irish question foreshadowed. "There is  reason lo believe." says a London report, "thai  Mr. Balfour's initial report ol" the war parley  will declare thai informal enquiries have made  il clear lhal President Wilson believes a speedy  .solution of lhe Irish problem will be one of Ihe  greatest steps lhal. could be laken lo advance lhe  fight for universal democracy."  11 is clear, from lliese casual reports���������������������������casual  bul indicative of miglily strides forward���������������������������that  the American governmcnl, while prepared lo  stay wilh the Allies to lhe end, will not allow  ilsell* lo become identified wilh any policy ol" oppression or autocracy within the doorway of its  allies. "Show us by your deeds wilhin your own  household lhal you are sincerely working for  universal democracy.'" says President Wilson in  his altitude, "and we shall be wilh you lo the  cndS In olher words, says he, "We musl nol  demand of the enemy lhal which we are unwilling lo comply with ourselves."  Grave warning that the submarine menace  may be an important factor in deciding lhc outcome of lhc war was sounded a few days ago by  Sir Arthur Stanley, president of lhc British  Board of Trade. "Wc have not ycL found a way  of dealing wilh lhe submarine so as lo remove  the clanger of its being an enormously important  factor-in determining the outcome of thc war.  The effect of the submarine war upon lhe existence of the British Empire," he said, "is  simply lhis���������������������������lhal we cannot conlinuc to bring  inlo lhe counlry all lhc supplies and materials  'required for bur existence, for the continuance  of Ihe war and for lhe actual needs of our industries."  - In lhe seven or cighl week of lhc submarine  warfare, the British boats sunk number some-  Ihing over 300. Of Ihesc, in ore than half were  ships over 1,000 Ions. Lasl week the number of  large ships sunk jumped lo forty. Commenting  on lhis phase of the situation, Admiral Lord  Beresford in lhc Mouse of Commons criticised  the admiralty's weekly relurns of shipping lost  as "seriously misleading, since Ihey omit losses  of neutrals, through which lhis counlry is now  really being feci, while lhc totals of arrivals and  departures include both neutral and Allied  vessels."  II is simply astounding to hear ordinarily sane  people lightly scoff al the ellicacy of the submarine blockade. One would think that the experiences of lhe past few years would lead our  people lo recognize lhc seriousness of lhe situation and whal il might lead to. Bul as a people  we have learned lillle, and will learn less, until  we gel rid of lhe notion lhal a few more Brilish  thrusts on the Western front are going to land  us in Berlin. The Scientific American, commenting on this poinl, says lhal "for some  months" il has had a growing conviction, based  upon a xery close study of lhc campaign", lhat thc  submarine losses were nol nearly so large, as  represented and that wilh the growth in size,  speed, and sea-keeping qualities of the submarine, the problem of meeting and breaking  up thc so-called blockade is becoming increasingly dillicull." Thc Scientific American says il  has "made an investigation of the capacity of the  German yards as regards building ways, and "il  discloses lhe interesting fact thai, wilhoul laying  down any additional ways, she could have under consiruclion al any given time aboul 530  submarines of lhc size of ihe U-53." This journal says thai Germany can: turn oul 500 submarines of the larger type every six months, and  concludes: "Here, as we sec il, is thc. immediate  danger-point in this great conilict into which wc  have now entered, ll is here lhat wc should apply, ancl should a I once apply, our whole ell'ort.  II* wc refuse lo clo lhis, and eleel to fight a purely  defensive war, and lhe Allies should have lo  make a peace favorable lo Germany, wc may  ultimately find ourselves face to face with the  High-Seas Fleet of Germany, and the veteran  armies, len millions slrong, of the four nations  of the Central Powers."

WORDS OF PROPHESY  MAKING LIFE TOO SERIOUS \  Taking life too seriously is said  to bean especially American failing. This may be true, but judging from appearances, it would  seem to be world-wide; go where  one may, he will find the proportion of serious, not to say anxious,  faces ten to one as compared with  the merry or happy ones. If  "the outer is always the' form,  ancl shadow of the inner," and if  ' 'the present is the fullness of the  past, and the herald of the  future," [and how can we doubt  it?] how many sad histories may  be read in the faces of those we  meet every day. The pity of it is,  too, that the sadness is a self-  woven garment, even as it is the  joy with which it might . be  replaced. Ruskin says, , "Girls  should be sunbeams, not only to  members of their own circle, but  to everyone with whom they come  in contact. Every room thev enter  should be brighter for their presence. " Why shouldn't all of us  be sunbeams, boys as well as girls  all along the way from twenty-  five years and under to eighty-  five years and over?  The seriousness of the farm labor problem is  not applicable lo Canada only. II is fell in lhe  Uniled Stales quite as much as here, and lhe  suggestion is made in some of lhe stales lhal lhe  liov  Seoul organizations should be employed iu  he fields, al llie prevailing rate of wages.  There arc those who believe lhcy can.sec in thc  words of the inspired writers of thc Bible the  forecasting of lhc present struggle in Europe,  and they quote lhc words of II Esdras, Ch. xi,  A'-.-H7^k)^l(i,-as-in(liGating^w-liaUihe-oulcanie-.w-ilI  bc.   Here are the verses:  And I beheld, iind lo as it were a roaring lion  chased out of the wood: unci I s;iw thai he sent out ;i  man's voice unto the eagle, and .said, Hear thou.

A., Vancouver   Agt., Endcrbi i  4  Thursday, Mav 3, 1917  THE ENDERBY PRESS AND WALKER'S WEEKLY  CANADIANS IN FLANDERS  One cannot get a clear idea of the what our  Canadian Iroops suH'eicd ancl gained in thc St.  Eloi ancl Yprcs fighting, in April, 1916, until hc  ' has read Lord Beavcrbrook's second war volume  telling oi" those vital days ancl nights, when the  Canadians slopped thc gap to Calais. Speaking  oi* thc fighting al thaliimc a writer says:  "Then   commenced   a   day   of   horror.    Two  thousand men had rushed  to  thc attack.    The  roll-call at dawn revealed a scant 600.    To lhe  left ol" thc wood ancl for a mile beyond stretched  a German  trench.    In front of it not a single  Allied soldier.    Thc Canadian  trench extended  beyond the edge of the wood.   German machine  guns played upon it constantly.   Many defenders  Went clown.    Then lhc German artillery somewhere over on thc right got the range.   All day  long the greal shells swept the Canadian line  from end to end.    Horribly accurate was their  fire.   By noon thc trench was filled in places.   To  move onc was forced to crawl over dead and  dying.    One's comrades breathed their last in a  roaring, crowded solitude.    Scant help could bc  rendered.   A shell lighting in a pile of dead and  wounded; red flesh ancl gory heads streaked thc  air.   But thc Canadians held on.   The thought of  retreat simply occurred to no one.   They wailed  thc German onslaught.   It was sure to come. But  it never came.    ...   Finally night drew on.  The enemy fire slackened.    Still the attack held  off.   No sleep for weary men though.   All night  long  they stood  to arms.    A  little food  was  brought up.   The men felt somewhat refreshed.  The night ended, and when day broke the 2nd  Battalion was in support in rear. Aboul 5 o'clock  in the morning orders were given to evacuate  lhc trench and let thc 2nd Battalion in..   The  movement was carried out in broad day light  ancl with considerable loss.   Thc Canadian Scottish retired to support trenches a half-mile back.  Then   the   news   of'-'lhe   battle   began- to   leak  through.   Thc Germans had attacked with three  army corps; about 120,000 men, and immense  quantities of artillery. This and the new asphyxiating gas. which they hurled at the French and  Canadian lines caused thc French to break, forcing thc Canadian left'to retire.   A gap of more  than a mile was made in the line.   With the exception of the Canadian Scottish ancl the 10th  Battalion not a man lay between the,Germans  ancl Calais.   They might have marched through.  These two units were hurled at the Germaniine,  were sacrificed, but they forced the Germans to  pause, believing thc British must be in force or  they 'would not: dare attack."  Wheat and Hour arc now on, thc free list between Canada and thc United Stales, and, since  thc .tariff was taken off by thc Canadian  government Hour has jumped three or four  dollars a barrclin Canada.  PRESIDENT WILSON, THE  MAN  After his initial interview with President Wilson, lasting only forty-five minutes, Mr. Balfour,  thc leading English statesman, is reported to  have come forth from thc While House with  beaming face, ancl to have exclaimed enthusiastically that it was worlh a trip across thc Atlantic, with all its submarine risks, just lo have  metallic President. This, from a man usually as  severe and reserved as Mr. Balfour, would indicate that the Britisher met a man in the While  House, and that hc himself was big enough lo  ! recognize lhe man on sight. Wc have heard  much from those more or less unthinking individuals, .who have delighted lo describe President Wilson as a pedantic old woman. But thc  great mass of Canadians have been big enough  to recognize the great task President Wilson has  been called upon to take up, ancl have withheld  criticism. Here is a quotation which is credited  to President Wilson, from a speech delivered by  him when he was president of thc Princeton University. These words indicate the character of  thc President and his sincerity:  "Colleges are in thc same dangerous position as the  churches," said Mr. Wilson, speaking at a banquet of  the Alumni Association of Western Pennsylvania. "I  hope that the last thing I will ever be capable of will  bc casting a shadow on the church, and yet tbe  churches���������������������������the Protestant ' churches at least���������������������������have  dissociated themselves from the people. They serve  Uic cljisi-ies, nol the masses. They serve certain  strata, certain visible uplifted strata, and ignore thc  men whose need is dire. They have more regard to  pew rents than for souls, ancl in proportion as they  seek the respect of their congregations to lift them  in esteem, they are lowering themselves in the whole  scale of Christian endeavor.  "The colleges are in thc same class, looking to thc  support of wealth rather than to the people. . .' .  Where does the strength of lhe nation come from?  Not from the men of wealth; they, have been lifted  up; their need has been satisfied. It comes from the  great, mass of the '..unknown, of the unrecognized,  whose powers are being bettered by struggle, who  will form their opinions as they go along in that  struggle, and who will emerge with opinions equal to  their strength, opinions which will rule.  "Most of the masters of endeavor of our day have  not come from the colleges, but from the,great rough-  and-ready workers of: thc world. College men serve  the non-college men; do you realize that?  "I have been struck sometimes with the thought,  would Lincoln have been a.belter instrument, for the.  country's good' if he had been put Hhrough the processes of one of our modern colleges? I believe in  my heart he'd have been less instrumental for good.  "If. I wanted a leader I'd choose liiih from among  those who are saturated with thc impressions of  common men. All the fruitage of the earth comes  from the black soil, where are the elements that  make for strength, for beauty. Is the strength in  the fruit. Not at all; it is in the black soil. Every  gfieut force comes from below, net from above."  WILL TAKE ALL THAT CAN BE GROWN  Thc evaporator resumed operations at Armslrong lhis week. An effort was made to get  white help, but as most of thc men have joined  thc colors ancl thc few remaining at home are  otherwise engaged, and the women ancl girls do  nol appear to need thc work at thc cleaning  tables, thc management has had to resort to  Chinese labor. Thc demand this season upon  this evaporator plant will bc greater than has  been  since  it  was   established,   owing  to   the  =parcnt=plant-of-=lliG=Graham���������������������������Company ,_Jii_=lhc4'  Easl, having been destroyed by lire, together  wilh half a million dollars' worth of evaporated  stock. This company is under contract to supply  thc Brilish army with its entire output, and the  pressing need for food al the fronl makes it  essential that thc loss sustained by the company  \by fire should bc made up immediately.

The demand will be heavy, it should be recognized as  a patriotic duty to meet the demand. Food for  thc army is vital. This is no time for pulling j  noses and damning the Kaiser. We can well  afford to spend less time reading about what  we'd like to clo to him, ancl spend more time in  the vegetable gardens, field gardens ancl grain  fields. Killing Kaiser Bill with one's mouth is a  mighty poor occupation, when our soldiers at  the front, who are really trying to clo the trick,  arc in want for food. And it might be added,  loo, that if thc women of England ancl France  had declined to work in -the munition factories  ancl on the farms,���������������������������a condition which makes it  necessary to employ Chinese in the Okanagan���������������������������  the Germans would certainly have Calais ancl  possibly Dover before now.  TALK OF HIGH WATER  Old timers are predicting high water this year.  Thc season, lhcy say, is identical thus far wilh  that of 1894���������������������������lhe flood year���������������������������when the spring  continued cold until aboul lhc middle of May  ancl then suddenly jumped into continuous hoi  clays and nights for three weeks. In thai year  the river backed over ils banks from Mara to  Enderby, ancl thc low lands situated along thc  river were two or three feel under waler. On lhe  10th of June of that year Mr. Alex Bilsland  paddled a canoe up lo thc ollice door of the  Columbia Flouring Mills. What is now the Ruttan residential property, and property adjacent  thereto was two feet under waler a I that time.  It is explained that this overflow is from lhc  backing up of the water from Mabel Lake sou lb,  ihe difference in elevation being only eight or ten  feel.

This  isn't a  day  of each one for  Expectations Satisfied  One of Spurgeon's students  said to him, "I am afraid I have  mistaken my calling, and that the  ministry really isn't my proper  work,''    ' 'Why,'' said Spurgeon,  "what is the reason you have  come to that conclusion?" "Well,  I have been working in such a  place for such and such a time,  and I don't seem to have accomplished much." "Why, manalive!  Y ou didn't expect that every time  you preach a sermon somebody  would be converted,did you?"  "No, of course I didn't expect  that." "Well, you don't get it,  then." Many people never get  far in_bettering,their characters  energetic, more prompt,.but it is  so hard to change one's habit, and  I really think I have become set  in my ways. I'll try, though."

The idea i.s prevalent in many  quarters lhat, since a newspaper  has to he filled, lhe publisher might  as well insert free advertising matter as anything else, on the ground  thai no additional cost is entailed  lo Ihe management. This is a  "Something for Nothing" notion  that would not be tolerated for a  moment iu any other business,  and i.s equivalent to asking a poultry keeper lo give away all the eggs  produced by his hens on the  ground that they cost nothing in  the production. Money is necessary lo the upkeep of a poultry  yard, and jusl as necessary to Ihe  maintenance of a newspaper ollice,  and to expect the latter to give free  space is no belter or worse than  asking lhe former to make free  gifts of his eggs.���������������������������Grand Forks  Gazette.
