A recent order-in-council makes  the sale of veal or spring lamb illegal. The object, of course, is to  conserve Ihe meat supply and  to put a slop to farmers selling  off their young stock rather than  feed it while they can sell thc feed  at such, high prices.  An entire reorganization of the  provincial- police and game warden 'departments, involving the  grouping together of these branches of thc service, the establishing of a mounted police section  and thc uniforming of all provincial policemen is a plan now being  considered by Hon. J. W. dcB.  Fan-is, attorney general.  An amendment to the Municipal  Elections Act provides for the  granting, of thc municipal vote on  by-laws, etcv to those ratepayers  who are not delinquent more than  one year.

DAY AT ARMSTRONG  A very, good-natured" crowd attended the Dominion Day celebration at Armstrong- Monday���������������������������not  the crowd of old, but large enough  to make the event interesting and  to bring the celebration committee  out on the right side of the ledger.  Enderby's  junior  baseball   team  played the Vernon juniors in the _  morning.    In this game  the local  team' redeemed   itself.    Thc, boys  went to Vernon a week ago and let /  the Vernon cubs, put it over them  by   a  score  of  18   to  0,  then   a!   ���������������������������  Armstrong  they  turned  the tables  and  won out by a score of 11-4/  There seemed to be no particular  reason for thc flop, except for thc   J  fact; that the Enderby boys played  belter ball, and,  with -BillyyJoncs  in  the  box  were  better balanced,  and played more together.-.     <  The first event, in the. afternoon  .was   another   baseball .game,-' this' ���������������������������"  lime between the married .men of%i .

"BOB"   KELLY  DROWNED  .'1_Last_-Suh(laM_aflc_r.n.oon JIoJhmI  Keller and Bert. McQuarric, station  agent and freight agent at Summerland, went oul on thc lake at  that point in a light canoe. The  lake was calm, and nobody seems  to know how the accident happened, but the overturned boat  with McQuarric clinging to its side  was seen from the telephone ollice  and Ihe women in charge of the  ollice hurriedly went lo the rescue.  McQuarric was rescued in the  nick of time, as he was all but exhausted and would soon have lei  go, to perish, as hc could not swim.  Mr. Kelly was a good swimmer,  but Bert says he never saw Kelly  come to the surface after thc boat  went over. The body of Kelly was  brought to the surface with grappling irons, and was taken to Armstrong Tuesday for burial.  Mr. Kelly was for eleven ycars  station agent at Armstrong. When  our sister town had, the strongest  lacrosse team in the Interior, Mr.  Kelly was a member of it. He was  interested in all sport, and many  ycars ago was a leading spirit in  lacrosse circles in the Interior.

In  connection with the censorship question a  valued friend writes the editor: "Your note  on the censorship . . . touches on the underlying principle of the whole situation so  deftly that it is a revelation to the reader  of the deeper foundation, underlying principles that we had not thought of. I was  an advocate of the censorship, but now I  am not so sure about it. There is a lot of  force in what you say." -n  There has been a great deal of complaint  about the censoring of the press, yet the  censoring of the photo plays is, in principle,  quite as serious. If it is not right to restrict the press or the spoken play within  legitimate lines, by what process of reasoning does it become right to censor the photo  play? The public will not patronize that  which it does not wish to see. And the  people are not unreasonable in asking to see  what they pay their money for. The censoring of a, play of the first rank such as  Griffith's "intolerance," to avoid the possibility of the play bringing criticism to or  from any particular section of the community, is right in line with the reasoning  of the Pharisees of Christ's time and of the  Dark Age.

Men best acquainted/with the district and  with a knowledge of 'crop conditions, are  predicting a bumper harvest this season in  the Okanagan. The June rains, while doing  some damage to the first alfalfa cut, made  up for this loss many times over in other  directions.   The grain fields never looked  better, and the orchards, vegetable gardens  and truck farms promise a bountiful yield.  Prices are certain to be high.     It is a year  when the man on the, land should make  good,   While this should be cause for rejoicing, it should not be reason for any  slackening in our efforts towards conservation.    Every pound of produce that can be  saved by economy in handling and use will  be needed.   Nothing should be permitted to  go to waste.   Anything which can be saved  should be saved.   In this woman must take  the lead.     It seems to be her particular  sphere���������������������������a sphere not particularly realized,  perhaps, but one that is her's nevertheless.  To a very large extent it is a lost art in our  Canadian and American homes.   We do not  have to look back more than a quarter of a  -cent-ury^to-t-he-time^wheirour^womeirwere  the bulwark against extravagance in every  Canadian home, and particularly every farm  home.    Compared with the men, perhaps  they are today.   But if we would know the  economy, the conserving influence, of a half  or even a quarter of a century ago, we must  close our eyes to what have been considered  the ' 'necessary" things of more recent years  and concentrate upon what used to be considered ample when we were children.  We may not like it, but the world is very  rapidly slipping back to the conditions of  half a hundred years ago. And we must  prepare in every community to meet them.  "This is woman's day," says a writer in  Leslie's. "The sooner she realizes that she  has a wider field than merely making Red  Cross bandages, assisting in relief work or  tending the wounded, and prepares herself  for participation in railroad work, yeomanry  service, and even for manual labor on the  farm and in the shop, the better will be the  results for womankind and for the nation."  RESTRICTING IDEAS  A woman has been appointed by the B.  C. Government to act with the present censor of moving pictures. She didn't happen  to be the woman picked out for the job by  women's political organization at Vancouver  and so the ladies got Premier Brewster by  Representatives of the University of B.  C. were in Enderby a few days ago on a  tour of the Interior, their object being to  bring the University and the people into  closer touch���������������������������to let the-people know that  we have in British Columbia facilities for  a university training equal to that of any  province in the dominion. More particularly they wished to bring before the .communities visited the matter of scholarships  established by the liberality of private individuals, and city and county councils, so  common in Great Britain and the United  States. It is believed that there are generous and public-spirited citizens in our province who will welcome a method by which  they can give practical expression to their  sympathy and good will.  These scholarships are given by the community under conditions made by the community to promising students selected by a  committee composed of local people. the  scholarships may.range from a minimum of  $100 to $250 or over per annum, and may  be tenable for one or two years.  //' WE KNEW  Could we but draw the curtains  That surround each other's lives,  Sec the naked heart and spirit,  Know what spur thc aclion gives,  Often wc should find it better,  Purer lhan we judge we should;  We should love each olher better  If we only understood.

".r-v "*yy  The Narrow Vision  To how many of us who call  ourselves Canadians does Canada  stand for anything outside of our  own town or city or at most the  Province in which that town or  city is situated? How many7of  visualize us this country of ours  merely as a vast area of land,  sparsely dotted with cities, containing some large rivers, lakes,  and mountain chains, and surrounded by a few oceans and the  United States? Are there, very,  many among ua who can grasp  the thought of geographical  Canada . as a_ whole? Are we  able'td realize, or do we ever try  to realize the extent, the diversity, the potentialities of this great  , Dominion in a thought, from  Cape Breton Island, ,to Vancouver Island farthest west, and,  Herschel Island farthest north?  Or in regard to our political  interests, do many of us look beyond the petty politics of our own  . little community?- Have the  problems of the Maritime Provinces, for instance, any interest  for us, or are they, so far as we  are concerned, dead, issues because we cannot see where they  affect us? Do we ever take the  time to glance back over the  political conditions of the past,  and find put a little about the acts  that are embodied in our consti-  Ttutioh, or the convictions" that  swayed the minds of the men  who framed it?  While there are many exceptions to the rule, it is a regrettable  fact, nevertheless, that the majority of us do not let the idea of  a larger Canada  enter into our  ^conception of things at all. We  live in one of the largest, richest  and most beautiful countries in  the world, but few of us take time  to think about it, because all we  see of it is the street through  which the tram car takes us to  the office in the morning; and all  the vital questions which concern  the Dominion as a whole, are narrowed down through our restricted and provincial viewpoint to  the one small problem: "how is  this going to affect me?"  ���������������������������Victoria Colonist,  opportune to verify that statement in the Bible where it remarks that the "Meek and lowly  shall inherit the earth.'.'

The young  male Mongolians, between the  ages of 18 and 36 years are compelled by law to obtain a military  training. This means that China,  before many years pass over the  dump of oblivion will have about  200 millions of men, trained in  the tactics of modern warfare,  all ready, when the time becomes  "\America is' demonstrating to  the world that a democracy of a  hundred million persons can wage  war. efficiently and with unity of  spirit, Secretary Daniels declared  recently in a commencement  address. '     '  ' 'Those who prophesied America  would not go whole-heartedly into  this war have been discredited,"  said, the secretary. "The only  divided councils have been to the  best method to be employed, and  when the President and Congress  have spoken, their decision has  been accepted.  "We are going to war without  passion, without hate, without  lust for land, without a trace \ of  vengeance. We do not hate the  people we are to fight.

Our victory will not only make  the world safe for democracy,  will not onlv strengthen self  government and end the fiction  of divine right, but it will also  bring to the German people a  new breath of liberty and hope  for the day when they will  govern themselves and be no  longer the pawns of militarism."  What Do -Your Cows Give  What did your best cow earn  for you last year?  A seven-year-old grade in a  herd near Oxford Mills, Ont,  that milked from March 30, 1916  to Jan.30,1917, gave 363.9 lb. fat,  which at 45 cents per. pound,  equals the substantial' sum of  $ 163.75.   Perhaps you got more.  Fortunately, the owner of this  herd is keeping records of each  cow that he owns and has the  satisfaction of knowing that six  out of fifteen cows earned over  $150.00 each.  With milk weighed every tenth  day, and a composite sample  tested once a month, the actual  yield of each cow for her full  period of lactation can be found  with but little trouble.  Milk and feed forms are free  on application to the Dairy Division, Ottawa. A study of records should mean an increase in  your cows earning capacity by at  least fifty per cent in three years.  Ireland's Democratic Rule  VTay Pay', O'Connor, famous  Irish leader, in a signed article  published in the Evening World  asserts that the trouble with  Ireland is "English stupidity, or  at least stupidity of her soldiers,  many of them reactionary Irishmen not controlled by English  ministers, has driven Ireland  mad by their follies and executions.  "If the devil himself, with  Machiaevelli for his prime minister, aided by the Kaiser's good  old German God, whom I may  summarize as Moloch himself���������������������������if  all these powers could have united, they could not have discovered such a combination of stupid  and provocative,tactics for driving the Irish people to fury and  despair as the British Government originated and employed  during and after the Dublin  rebellion," O'Connor continued.  "The Irish people will not be  fooled forever, although they  may be fooled for some time  longer."  Keeping One's Serenity  Standing by the bier of his life  long friend, Henry W. Longfellow, Ralph Waldo Emerson,  after a vain effort to force his  almost vanished memory to enlighten him, ��������������������������� said, touchingly,  "The. gentlemen we have just  been burying was a sweet and  deautiful soul, but I forget his  name." ' Our names will be forgotten by thousands of people  whose paths of life have crossed  ours; but, if we can leave the impression of "sweet and beautiful  souls," we shall not have lived in  vain. Our names are but convenient tags; labels for ready  reference, but our influence is s  part,of the world's life. Were  Longfellow's name to vanish from  human records,; the throbs of  passion, the thrills, of beauty,  appreciation; the tender emotions  that his poems have,called forth  will -. have. ; affected countless  thousands in ever widening  circles. , An influence for good  can be radiated every moment of  one's life. Being sweet, cheerful, polite, helpful faithful in  every way to your better instincts  will win for you truer immortality than deeds that are' blared  through the  trumpet of fame.  Finding Money for War  W"ith congress, at its wit's end to  find more taxable material, sight  is lost of the fact that the necessity of raising the enormous revenue contemplated in the war bill  is a self-imposed proposition.  The idea of making the present  generation bear so large a propor-  tion^of^the^expenses^may^-not-  necessarily be so praiseworthy as  it appears. When it is remembered that the generation is paying its burden in man power, the  argument apbeals with less force.  It can be readily conceived that  any attempt to make the people  carry on the active contest uy  withdrawing its forces from domestic employment, and at the  time meet all the expenses of the  war, may be unwise as well as  unjust. By the same token, excessive taxes will operate to impair industry at the very time  when it calls for encouragement  to the utmost. In peace it has  been customary to sqread out the  cost of great improvements so  that the coming generations,  which will be equal beneficiaries,  will pay in part. As this is a  war professedly to "make democracy safe for the world" similar  methods seem advisable. There  is no question of the resources of  of the nation. Whether they  should be drawn upon to the  straining point now becomes the  debateable point. ���������������������������Leslie's.  clare "this apostle of democracy  is the most powerful autocrat in  the world, far more so than the  German Kaiser." They further  dub him "the mouthpiece of the  enemy allianee against democracy." It does beat all how  readily these democrats recognize  each other, and how openly they  proclaim the purity of their motives and their mutual solicitude  for their common democratic  faith. It really does. There i.s  no getting around the fact.  ���������������������������Federationist.

THE  WALKER   PRESS ,i)7  THE ENDERBY PRESS AND WALKER'S WEEKLY-  Thursday, July 5, 1917  Facts About Canada  v."'<~ ���������������������������  In 1867, Canada comprised four  provinces, embracing a narrow  strip along the Lower Lakes and  the St. Lawrence, with a limited  frontage on the Atlantic.  In 1917, there was nine provinces and a large unorganized  territory, embracing half a continent, stretching from the Pacific to the Atlantic and from the  United States to. the Pole.  The greatest single factor in  the progress of Canada has been  the opening up of the West,  which the above.extension in  political control made  possible.  In 1867, Canada embraced an  area of 540,000 square miles, with  a population of 3,600,000.  In 1917 her area measured  2,729,665 square miles, with a  population of about 7,600,000.  In 1867, immigration was small  and sporadic; before 1900 it had  increased to 20,000-45,000  annually; _in 1913 it reached  402,000; and in 1914 485,000.  Canada has since .1900 taken  the place of the United States as  the chief magnet for old-world  migration.  Wheat crop of 1871, under  17,000,000 bushels; crop of 1915,  426.746,000 bushels; crop of 1916,  220,000,000 bushels.  In 1871 less than 2,000,000 acres  were sown with wheat; today the  acreage in Saskatchewan alone is  850,000,000 and the total for all  Canada is close upon 15,000,000.  Oats in 1871 yielded 42,500,000  bushels; in 1915 523,684,000  bushels.  Barley in 1871 yielded 11,500,  000 bushels in 1915 60,696,000  bushels. ,  Hay in 1871 yield under 4,000,  000 tons; in 1916 nearly 15,000  000 tons.   ���������������������������  The total .value of Canadian  ��������������������������� field croDsin the last fifteen years  alone has risen from $195,000,000  -/?;iri:d901 to $841,U00,000 in  1915.

The production of home made  butter in 1870 was 74, L90,584 lbs.  in 1910 it was 137,110,200 lbs.  The quantity, of factory-made  butter in 1915 was 79,646,-393 lbs.  Factory-made cheese, of- which  there was very, little in 1870, now  shows an annual production of  about 200,000,u00 lbs.  The    exportable   surplus   of  Canadian  agricultural  products  -���������������������������- in 1868-70 was only $13,000,000;  ;.   in 1916-17 it was $480,000,000.  INTIMATION  Mr. Alvin E.
