C. at S2   per   year,   by   thc  WalVer   Press.  In order to conserve the supply of beef and  bacon supply of the American continent for the  needs of the Allies, thc Department of Fisheries  of thc United Slates and of the Dominion will in  future encourage greater fish eating at home, and  wilh this object in view the Dominion Government has taken steps to inquire into the difference between the purchasing price and the selling  price of lhc Canadian whilcfish.   Fishermen arc  paid live cents a pound'for these fish by thc combination handling them, and the selling price of  Uic fish is twenty cents a pound.   Other steps are  being taken lo conserve the fish supply in the  lakes and streams.   And with tliis object in view  lhc Department has adopted- morc stringent regulations governing the taking of thc little "kick-  aninney," or Red Fish.    Heretofore, il has becn  customary to take these fish by scoop shovel, net,  gaff-or pitchfork, as they started up the creeks  from the lakes to spawn in September.    Under  the new regulations a heavy penalty is imposed  for  taking  these  fish  by anything  other   than  bait and hook.   Fishermen haye told us that thc  "kickaninney" will, not take the hook.    But in  this they evidently are mistaken.    Fisheries Inspector Gartrell, of Summerland, tells  the Review lhat ihey can be caught as readily as any  of the lake fish, if you know what kind of bait  to use.   And Inspector Gartrell divulges thc bait  secret ,which was given him by the Indians.   Hc  made many experiments and found the bait was  all right.   He himself hooked 15 "kickeninnies"  close to the shore in a very few minutes.   But thc  bait?   Listen: All you have to do is to wrap a few  ant's eggs in wild rose petals and with a string  tic them to the hook in such a way as to cover the  hook.   This makes a dainty morsel.   But at this  season of the year there are no wild rose petals,  therefore you will have to substitute something  else, or wait until next year.   It is claimed that  the wholesale taking of fish at spawning time is  rapidly reducing their numbers.

Ed'tor The  Enderby  Press:  Dear Sir: Much is being written  on the correspondence pages of  the newspapers and magazines of  the country regarding Sunday  work in thc harvest fields, and I  know this article will create resentment in thc minds of many  who arc in thc habit of letting the  clergy interpret their bible for  them.  T want to ask all who read this  article and are sufficiently interested to care to judge fairly, to  read, not once but several times,  fhe third and fourth chapters of  Galatians. It is too long to be  quoted in full, but J wo'dd like to  call attention to a few verses:  "What then is the law? It was  added because of transgressions  until the seed should come to  whom the promise had been given.'  And again, in the 23rd verse of  the fourth chapter:  "But before faith came we were  kept in ward under the law, shut  up unto the faith which should  afterwards be revealed, so that the  law had been our tutor to bring us  to Christ that wc might be justified  by faith. But now that faith is  come we are no longer under a  tutor."  If you doubt what, law is here  referred to you will find it fully  explained in the last part of. the  chapter: it was the law given on  Mt. Sinai, or the Ten Commandments. In the first verse of the 5th  chapter it says: "With freedom did  Christ set us free; stand fast there:  fore and be not entangled again in  the yoke of bondage."  What does Christ say we shall be  4..,^,.judged by? Can you find any place  [||?/?^v'liere he says we shall be judged  [ij^Cybyyiihe law? Does he not say that  '^^r;Vjthe^ sentence pronounced on the  ff|V'fguYlty_ will be: "I was an hungered  li!$������������������^andsyc fed me not; I** was a stran-j  [|^������������������|rger/and ye took not me in; naked  and ye clothed me hot; in prison  and .ye visited me not!"  Christ never refused to do good  because it was Sunday. God has  made certain laws which govern  nature, and if we sit idle while a  . storm gathers and . refuse to be  ��������������������������� warned, and will not take in our  hay or harvest our grain because it  is Sunday, then we and not God  are icsponsible if we lose our.harvest. So many professing Christians live in the fear of Christ  rather than in "His Love, and in  consequence are obeying the letter  of fhe law through fear instead of  the spirit of the law which is Love.  To such I vwid sav. read the  13th chapter of First Corinthians,  and remember that in your treatment of your neighbor you arc fulfilling or rejecting the law of  Christ. % Be not only just, be generous. Ida Abbott,  Hupel, B. C.  FINISHING MARA SCHOOL  Considerable difficulty seems to  be experienced in getting a clean  sheet on the Mara school, erected  last fall and winter by Messrs.  Jones & Grant. The regulation  . hold-back was made by the Department of Works, and a long list  j of complaints were registered by  lhe Mara board of school trustees  against acceptance of the building  until the shortcomings complained  of were duly adjusted. Mr. Jones  came up from the coast a month or  morc ago, and made certain repairs, such as adjusting doors and  windows, etc., as is usually necessary. He was then accompanied  by a building inspector sent up by  the Department of Works, and reported to The Press that the work  then clone by him had put things in  acceptable order, and he returned  to the coast assured that all was  well. Since "his departure, and the  inspection then made, it would  seem' that further complaints have  been lodged with the Department,  for Mr. Wm. Owens, secretary of  the'school board reports receiving  from the Public Works Engineer,  Victoria,   the   following letter:  '"The Superintendent of Education notified me of your complaint  regarding the unsatisfactory completion of your school. On renoft  from a Government Inspector the  work done by Mr. Jones was not  considered sufficient to warrant  the Department accepting the  building. Mr. Jones was notified to  ���������������������������put the remaining items in order,  but hc cannot see his way to clo  this, so the Department is about to  get tenders to complete the work  in a satisfactory manner and  charge the aniount against the  holdback from contractor now retained by the Government. The  newspaper report was unauthorized and false and no doubt within  the course_of a few weeks, the  work will 'be completed to our  mutual satisfaction."  Mr. Jones has yet to be heard in  the matter."  -   <<^^^7I;,   ri  WHEA T_CONTE_ST  In the wheat growing contest  held this year under the auspices  of the Farmer's Institute, the first  prize was won by Mr. R.

The. problems arising out of Canada's participation in the war arc  enough to keep our ministers absorbed in work.

"We will have" 125,000,000 bushels as compared to the average  crop of 100,000,000."  The food controller is lending  his help to the farm labor situation in Ontario where it is acute.  Representatives of the large !n  industries met in Toronto and  considered ways and means of  relessing men from their regular  work to help with the harvest.  ��������������������������� "In the conserving of foods,"  said Mr. Pratt.' 'the careful serving of bread is very necessary.  Three slices of bread from the  loaves at present supplied, with  one pat of butter, are ample for  an order. Deep pies with one  crust only, either meat or fruit,  should be used in preference to  pies with top and bottom crust.  Open fruit or jam tarts also  should be used."  In 1915 and 1936, Manitoba  lakes produced 48,000,000"pounds  of fish,75 p.c. which was exported to , the United States.

The food controller of Canada is arranging  to reduce the wide margin between fishermen and consum-  er?.  Mr. W.

There never was any  question of leadership, as it was  well known that no other man bul  the present prime minister could  carry thc Conservative party into  a union government on such a  basis. The prime minister is willing to make any sacrifice to consummate the union of the war  parties-and thus guarantee an aggressive war policy until victory is  accomplished, but his retirement  would, as far as the Conservative  parly i.s concerned, defeat .the very  object for which he has worked so  sincerely and with such patience."

It is understood it will be transmitted through the British foreign office through which the  Pope's communication came.  In the best-informed quarters  it is believed that the reply, while  responding to the Pontiff's  proposal with the delicacy and  respect which the latter commands, does not findthat there  is any ground on which to proceed to a decision of peace in the  absence of an announcement by  Germany as to her terms.  The Apaches went on the war  path in Arizona this month. Col.  Lowery i.s authority for thc statement lhal this outbreak was not  plotted by lhe Germans.
