The results of the school examinations this term, prove what can be  done when harmony reigns between scholar and -, teacher and  teaching staff and school board.

MEMORIAL SERVICE  A very, impressive service was '  held in the Methodist Church on  Sunday evening last in memory of  one of our- local boys, Pte.

Mr. Lee then gave some touching  incidents of heroism ancl Christian  nobility by our men at the front,  and he commeiilccLupon thc.brave J .,  optimistic spirit revealed in the  letters written home.  While our boys did not go out as  saints, hc (the preacher) was quite  willing to leave them in thc hands  of Ihe Almighty. The death or  every man was a trumpet call to  duty, if not at the front, why, then  do our best to b.e true citizens al  home. The indifference of the  past is passing away and we are  awakening lo a new sense of our  Christian responsibilities.  PTE. HENRY A.

" iV  THURSDAY, AUGUST 2, 1917  HELPFULNESS OF FRANK STATEMENTS  Al Ihe Paris conference on the Balkans,following the disaster to the Russian forces in Galicia,  which it is claimed by military writers changed  lhc aspect of the whole Balkan situation., thc  Entente Powers decided to.withdraw their troops  as soon as possible from ancient Greece, Thessaly  and Epirus. Military occupation of the triangle  formed by the Santi Quaranta road and thc  Epirus frontier will be. maintained provisionally  as a measure of security, Italy and Greece to  agree as regards re-establishment of the civil  adminislration; under a commissioner appointed  by Greece. France, Great Britain and Italy will  preserve during the war a naval and military  base on the island of Corfu, the island remaining  under, the* sovereignty'-of ���������������������������'.Greece., -V-.V  This, it should be understood, does not mean  that lhe Entente Powers are evacuating Salonica.  Thc districts from which Iroops arc being withdrawn border on Serbia, and were" no doubt  placed I here by the Entente Powers to prevent  Teuton and ('.recce forces joining in an offensive  againsl thc invaders Avh.cn it was feared there  wonkl bc trouble from thc troops of Greece last  year. While il is possible , the evacuation of  Salonica may follow that of Ancient Greece, it is  morc than probable the iroops are being withdrawn in order lo bc used, in lhe Balkan operations against the Bulgars, or on some olher front.  Thc Press always has felt that its readers were  men and women���������������������������broad enough in-mind, and  penetrating enough in intellect, .to recognize a  statement of .fact even-if ifdid disturb their preconceived ideas. Wc have endeavored lo give as  clear an understanding of war conditions and  fads and issues growing out of it as wc were  capable of, and morc particularly to disabuse the  public mind of lhc idea that'everything was rosy  I'or thc Allies. Wc have told frankly lads as lhcy  have appeared lo us. Often these fads appeared  in lhe face of mosl optimistic reports from the  news bureau of the War Ollice, and lhcy have nol  pleased a small proportion of our readers, who,  by-lhc-way, have somehow acquired the idea lhal  the local newspaper should express their conception of facts and nol actual conditions. Of course,  lhis idea is a.very foolish one, as may also be the  idea of Tlie Press thai ils mission is to speak  plainly ils impression of actual condilions as it  finds fhem. But, lhank thc Good Lord, lhere arc  not many of our readers who allow this idea to  get possession of Ihem.

In an article in Land and Water, Frank  H. Simonds, the mosl eminent military critic'of  America, speaks frankly of what may be expected  of America's cll'ort on behalf of lhc Allies. He  says lhat despite lhe good .intentions of lhat  co"untry. all the men it is able lo send to lhe front  before"lfl 19 will he more for the moral effect  11 ia n Ii s If ii y 1 hale rial coiitri bit I ion V H c t a kctv 11 ie  position thai it is belter to tell thc people frankly  what lo expect Hum lo deceive them and be deceived by over-optimistic slull" having no foundation in fact. "If the American people arc convinced,** he adds, "lhal Germany is at (he point  of collapse, orlhal a victory, like lhc recent success of lhe Brilish at Arras, is lhc prelude to a  German surrender, il will be very dillicull lo keep  military preparations going." And lh.cn he concludes wilh these remarks, which apnly as much  lo Canada as Ihe t'niled Slates: "We have been  eonslanlly handicapped in this counlry by lhe  optimism* in ccrlain quarters in England and in  Era nee."  BUNC  There is a whole lol of opera bouffe bunc in  much that is prinlcd and said loday about the  conservation of food. F'rinslancc, the American  Bankers' Association is sponsor for a half-page  ad. in a New York paper captioned, "God bless the  Household lhat Boils Potatoes with the Skins On.'  Thc advertisement concludes with these imperative sentences:  "Suppose that a lot of selfish, careless, thoughtless people throughout the nation so conduct  themselves lhat you cannot get enough food for  your family, so your wife fails and grows weak  dren weaken, sicken and. die. Suppose starvation  looks al you through the hollow eyes of all you  love best in thc world. Wouldn't you bc filled  wi Ih loathing a nd co n ternp t a nd bitter ha I red for  the careless, thoughtless people whose fault il  was? There is not enough food to go around.  Entire nations abroad are starving���������������������������men, women  and children are dying like flies today, in seme  countries, of plain, sheer starvation. Wc must  send them .millions of tons of food, and "we'will.  There will be less for you. Wake-lip to it. You  will, have leys t:> eat. But you, need less. You  waste enough to supply the difference.

When bankers attempt to give advire to housewives nn skinning hew potatoes with a 5-ccnt  brush'Ihey ought to. by the. same token, let the ordinary housewife tell Ihem hew to skin men  without brushing.

And it has territory for many  times its present population.  We are told in. a London despatch that the  Allies supplied the Russian army with munitions,  guns, tanks, etc., to an amount greater, than any  army ever went into the field with; also men to  handle the guns. But they could not put any  fight into the men. And the romantic piece of  sentimentalism, that of sending an army'corps  of women into the field to fight the Germans, did  not help matters.; Even the women failed to give,  the necessary inspiration." It is said that'never did  an army go into the field better supplied, and yet,  never\was an army so completely routed.

In the present war it is estimated the total expenditures of the various nations .engaged have  already exceeded $100,000,000,000, and the end  is not yet in sight.

Russia in a Tragic State  London���������������������������A great tragedy is being enacted in the life of the free  Russian people, according to Mr.  Arthur Henderson, member of  the British- Council and representative of labor, who has just  returned from an extended visit  to Russia. He is convinced that  unless the situation is handled  with firmness there must be an  inevitable disaster.  ^^Mr.-=Henderson-said-during-the  course of an interview that it  was nothing less than a misfortune that the continuance of the  of the coalition government had  proved impossible. The difficulties the government had to cope  with were such as no other government ever experienced. It  wai impossible to convey anything like an adequate conception  of the extent to which the extremists dominated the life of the  capital, dtmocratizing the army  and navy, especially those units  in close proximity to  Petrograd.  The true extremists, he declared, did not represent more than  a small minority of the population, but such has been the spirit  of terror exercised, together with  their destructive influence over  certain sections of the military  forces, that they had succeeded  in rendering a stable government  difficult, if not almost impossible.  Mr. Henderson considered that  the most disastrous development  of the revolution was the relaxation of discipline in the army  and navy, coupled with the direct association of those services  with the political and revolutionary propaganda. The resumtion  of the offensive caused the extremists considerable annoyance  and although they had the wisdom to remain quiet while victories were being gained, it was  it was generally recognized that  they were waiting for an oppor  tunity   for  the  made with such  move recently  disastrous con:  is to rise to, the  sequences.  "If Russia  greatness of her possibilities, the  forces of disorder must be  strongly dealt with," continued  Mr. Henderson. "The future,  judging from recent events, is  largely in the hands of the new  workmen's and soldiers' council,  elected by the all-Russia congress  which represents a large section  _of^the_community,__and_^w_hose_  representatives are likely to become the dominant part in the  constituent assembly."  The Russian Socialists, he said,  were strong advocates of an in-  ternationel conference. He discussed the subject with M.  Tseretelli, Minister of Posts and  Telegraphs, just before leaving  Petrograd. The minister urged  the importance of such a conference and of Great Britain being  represented.  It's Up to the Newspapers  The newspaper is one of the  most important institutions in  modern life. When united it is  the greatest mental fores in the  world, and can accomplish most  anything./ If every newspaper  on earth was in favor of peace  there would be no war in October.  The division of thought among  editors has the same effect upon  public opinion, for in this age  the people get their opinions  from the newspapers. The  greatest friend to any district or  country is an honest, fearless or  independent newspaper. None  but the corrupt, dishonest and  wicktd, either in private or public life, hate a newspaper that is  truthful, outspoken and vigorous  in its attacks upon the evils of  church, state or society. No  editor can hold a job on a strictly  partisan paper, religious, politi  cal or otherwise, unless he is a  son of Ananias. ' An independent  press can save the world, but for  a time the editors would have to  live.in forts or war "tanks."  The slaves they would liberate  would eat them up in their ignorance and blind devotion to  custom, precedent and environment���������������������������Greenwood Ledge.

The evening was delightfully warm, mellow and  moonlight, and a large crowd assembled from far and jicar. Two  auto loads came from Salmon Arm,  others from the country and nearby settlements. Alderman Bruhm  and Mrs. Bruhm, Miss Goddard and  Editor Moore, of the Observer; and  Miss Reid and Miss Robison, with  Mr. Henry Harbell came from the  Arm.  Games of chance, fortune telling,  ice cream, candy, etc., and dancing  to the music rendered by the City  band enabled those present to  spend a very happy social evening.  They added something like one  hundred dollars to the Red Cross  Fund.  The Press is requested by the  ladies of thc Red Cross to thank all  who so kindly helped in making  the fete such a success, and especially to lhank the band ancl Mr.  Carlson for the aid rendered by  them.

COLLIN  Swine Husbandry  Alfalfa geems to be even more  acceptable to pigs than red  clover. In a pasture in which  the two clovers are mixed, the  pigs will eat the alfalfa bare to  the ground before touching  the other. It is important,  therefore, that an alfalfa pasture  be not overstocked, as this plant  will   not stand close cropping.  At the Kansas station, alfalfa  hay has been found a very profitable addition to the winter ration  for fattening hogs. The hay  used was of first-class quality,  land was fed whole, as an adjunct to corn. It was given freely so that the pigs ate only the  leaves and finer portions, rejecting the coarser stems, which although charged against the hogs,  were used as bedding. It was  found that the hogs getting alfalfa hay in addition to their  grain, consumed more feed but  made much more rapid and economical gains/ The hogs receiving alfalfa hay in addition to  corn made an average gain of  90.0 pounds in 9 weeks, while  those getting corn alone gained  only 52.4 pounds. The gains per  bushel of feed were as follows:���������������������������  One bushel corn and 7.83  pounds alfalfa feed hay produced 10.83 pounds gain.  One bushel corn alone produced  7.48 pounds gain.  At the Utah station alfalfa hay  \vas fed in addition to a full grain  ration of chopped wheat and  bran, and the hogs thus fed consumed more grain and made  much larger and more economical gains than those fed on grain  alone.  These and other results indicate that alfalfa has a feeding  value in addition to the actual  nutriments contained. It stimulates the appetite, aids digestion, and improves the general  health and thrift of the animal.  The most profitable results at all  stations were obtained by feeding all the grain the pigs would  eat in addition to the alfalfa.  Larger gains for a given quantity  of feed consumed were obtained  by feeding a limited grain ration  and compelling the pigs to eat  more of the alfalfa, but much  more rapid gains and better  general thrift of the pigs getting  a full grain ration in addition to  the alfalfa was found to yield a  large net profit, and to be more  satisfactory in every way.  The alfalfa was fed dry, either  whole or cut into chaff, and  separate from the meal. Better  results are obtained in this way  than by mixing with the meal  and thus forcing the pigs to consume   an undue amount of it.

W.  Dafoe, has spoken out plainly on  the political aspects. It is still  impossible, however, to cure the  public of its habit of apathetic,  unreasoning optimism. The attitude of The Post still inspires incredulity ahd, in some cases,  antagonism.  Here is an extract from a letter  addressed "by the editor of a  western newspaper to The Post  this week:���������������������������  "Where did you get your information re the need of a  thorough mobilizing of the nation's resources? We published  the statement telegraphed us by  our Eastern correspondent and it  has so-upset some of our, readers  that I hear a couple of them have  gone crazy. Here we have  thought we were winning the  war andThe-Post comes along"  and dispels the idea."  There is a distinct tendency in  the country to accept only the  facts that are pleasing. The  Toronto Star in a recent editorial criticizes The Post for painting  "so dark a picture as to produce  depair rather than vigorous  action. "Has the Star forgotten  what Lloyd-George said in his  stirring address on April 29:  "Britain is one country that  you don't get the best out of  until it knows the worst. This is  true of any country with grit."  Canada is a country with grit.  The best efforts towards winning  the war will not be secured from  the people of Canada until they  know tha actual facts.���������������������������Financial Post.   Shortage of Shipping  London���������������������������In the course of a debate in the House of Lords on  food prices, Lord Beresford said  that the shortage of shipping  was far more serious than the  public knew. The statistics  showed that between August,  1914, and January, 1917, the  British, Allied and neutral loss  was 4,000,000 tons sunk. From  January, 1917, until now we had  lost nearly four million more. The  average rate of loss, taking the  months from January till now,  was 8,000,000 tons a year.  When   we   entered   the war  there were 49,u00,000 tons of  shipping in the world, of which  the British, Allies and nentrals  had 30,000,000. That has-been  reduced already by 8,000,000)  tons. His opinion was that now  we had not much more than 22,-  000,000 or 23,000)000 -tons.  Against that we had to consider  what the Americans could put in  the water, including ships taken  from the Germans, which were  about 2,000,000 tons, but large  number of these ships were not  suitable for cargo carrying.  The outdut of the British and  Allies was about 2,500,000 tons.  After the first two years of the  war, shipbuilding fell down  terrifically, so we were not nearly beginning to make it up. He  did not think we could make up  altogether more than 4,000,000  tons a year.
