William & Wilfred Owkn.  Mara, Sept. 3, 1917.  if ive are to have an increased  acreage for the crops of 1918 ive  must increase the amount of plowing done this fall.  Munition workers are now being  let out by the thousands in Canada  since the orders for shells were  stopped by the Imperial Government a week or two ago, and the  Farmers' Magazine, of Toronto, i.s  strongly advocating that these  munition workers be put to work  by the Dominion Government in  plowing wheat lands in Ontario  and the Northwest. It is estimated  that additional acreage to the  amount of 1,000,000 acres could be  brought under the plow in Ontario, and the same amount in  Saskatchewan and Alberta, and  planted to seed for next season.  To facilitate the work, thc Farmers' 'Magazine  advocates  the  Gov-  Later R. C. Barker, an old expert-',  enced   employee  of  the   company,  was appointed to the position.   On1  September 1st Mr. Barker went to;  Penticton, and was last seen alive  returning to the ferry boat tied toll  United     States,     makes     grievous  complaint  because  of  the  lack  of  enthusiasm among the people over  the wharf.

Thursday, September 6, 1917  California peaches are as perishable as Okanagan peaches.   And here is what the state market  director says of co-opertive selling of the California peach crop:   "Last January while East, as  the result of investigation, I found tliat the average price for California peaches in New York at  retail was about 17 cents per pound.   The California  grower at  that time was getting about  2 1-2 cents per pound.   It was said to cost him between 4 cents and 5 cents a pound to produce  them.   That meant that out of every dollar paid  by  the  Eastern  consumer  for California  dried  peaches, the California peach grower was getting  14 cents, making a cost of 88 cents for distribution, showing clearly a great waste in the cost of  such distribution, and making it further plain  that there'was ample room'for reducing the price,  to the consumer and raising Uic price to the producer.    Meanwhile, the peach growers have, organized, with the result that this year they are  getting a price between 5 1-2 and 8 cents per  pound, which to them is a remunerative price,  whereas  the  price  to  the  consumer has  been  lowered about 16 per cent, as compared with a  year ago.   This change has been brought about  to the advantage of both, by the growers collectively being in a position to minimize speculation  and to have a voice in stabilizing prices."

Thc directors and officers of the Spallumcheen  Agricultural Society are deserving of the hearty  settlcd'districts, whilc'thc prices for commodities'support and unstinted co-opcration^of thegrow  continue to climb, there is not the opportunity  offered to get the higher wage to meet thc rise in  living costs. This condition is gradually bringing  the hardship of famine ever nearer. Today all  Europe is in the clutch of self-imposed famine.  Even in England, perhaps as little starved as any,  one pound of sugcr must serve four people one  whole week.    Othcr things in proportion.  Sooner or later these conditions, somewhat  modified no doubt, arc certain to be felt in Canada. It is bound lo hit us closer home. No one  cair escape some of the hardship. It rests with,  each individual home how much they are to  ^mmlr^Br^e-aTCservati^  crs, stockraiscrs, and public generally of the dis  trict, for their untiring efforts on behalf of thc  Fal!

The tendency of thc public in these days of un������������������  certainly is to allow these public events to fall  by thc way; and many affairs of this nature have  been discontinued since thc war began.

Thursday, September 6, 1917  THE ENDERBY PRESS AND WALKER'S WEEKLY  ������������������Hiring tin 2ufo fr&ni fk %wx  Before we take an auto ride Pa says to Ma: "My dear,  Now just remember, I don't need suggestions from the rear;  If you will just sil still back there and hold in check your fright,  I'll lake you where you want to go and gel you ba"I. ail right.  Remember that my hearing's good, and also I'm not blind,  Ancl I can drive this car without suggestions from behind."  Ma promises that she'll keep still, then off we gaily start,  But soon she notices ahead a peddler.and his cart.  "You'd belter loot your horn," says she, "to let him know we're near  He might turn out!" and Pa replies: "Just shriek al him, my dear.!'  And then he adds: "Some day some guy will make a lot of dough  By putting horns on tonneau seats for womenfolk to blow-"  A liltle farther on Ma cries: "Hc signaled for a turn "  And Pa says: "Did he?'' in a tone that's hot enough to burn.  "Oh, there's a boy on rolicr skates!" cries Ma; "Now do go slow;  I'm sure he doesn't sec our car."   Ancl Pa says: "I dunno,  I think J don't need glasses yet, but really it may be  J'hat I am blind and cannot sec what's right in front of me."  If Pa should speed lhe car a bit, some rigs- to hurry past.  My whispers: "Do be careful now; you're driving much too fast."  And all the time she's pointing out the dangers of the street  And keeps him posted on the roads where trolly cars he'll meet-  Last night when wo got safely home, Pa sighed and said: "My dear,  I'm sure we've all enjoyed the drive you gave us from the rear-"  A MASTERFUL NOTE  President  Wilson's  reply  to  the peace proposal of the Pope, is  one of the finest state papers issued  by any government at any time,  ancl by far the clearest and most  reasonable' that has come from the  Allies since the war began. While  showing no desire to dictate to the  German people their form of government,' thc President, as a good  American, expresses his faith in  the honesty and sincerity of democracy. He is not concerned to insist that Germany must have a  form of government-like our own,  Peace Prospects  Washington, Aug.30-Peace this  winter or next spring as a result  of President Wilson's reply to the  Pope or at least two more years  of war ��������������������������� that is the prospect  ahead.  So far as the United States is  concerned, it is going ahead with  war preparations. It will not  waver until the German people  have stripped the Kaiser of his  present autocratic powers.'  Military men believe there is a  chance of peace in the President's  note. They point out that Germany  is 'showing evidences of  Reducing Goiter Ills  That goiter is becoming more  prevalent in the mountainous districts of Western. Canada, and tha!  it is due to certain principles in  the water from the mountains is  the claim that is made by Dr. T. G.  Ritchie, who has made an exhaustive study of the disease and its  cause. Long years ago it was  known that goiter was a common  malady along the eastern slope of  the Rockies, and on the plain-;  that skirled the base of the range.  The ill is hot without remedy,  :inc"l precautions can be takc.i fn<":t  will reduce the danger to an almost inconsequential minimum.'  The drinking of boiled water will  modify the effects of thc disease,  at least when this practice is followed in time, and where the disease does not exist the use of boiled  water will prevent ils appearance.  Boiling water removes the harmful constituents, so Dr. Ritchie testifies, ancl thus removes the source  of danger.

This must be bona  fide, state department authorties  said today; or.it will be futile.  It is up to Germany's leaders to  decide whether to fight on or- to  accept peace now.The President's  note is concrete evidence that  the ambition of her enemies is  not to crush her.  President Wilson has declared  against the dismemberment of  empires and against' post-bellum  trade wars. In these circumstances, the German people "for  the first time can realize that  the war against them is not  mercenary or agressive, but that  it is one of altruistic purpose.  Hence, as many here see it, the  Liberals of Germany will force  off the yoke of kaiserism.  If, however, they content  themselves with hearkening to  the made-in-Germany plea that  the war is now oney of defence insofar as Germany is  concerned the struggle will go  on.  a  r^^^cliqiie"-whose 'political  vices, have  - beenmadc  notorious  by the war,  but with a free people which in the  mass is never dishonorable, never  .cynical, never treacherous.  Concluding  his "reply,   after  reviewing  the events  leading up  to  America's participation in the war  _ on the side of the Entente, President Wilson says: "The American  people    have    suffered   intolerable  wrongs  at - the  hands  of  the  Imperial    German    Government,    but  they  desire  no  reprisal  upon  the  German   people,   who   have   themselves  suffered   all   things   in   this  war,  which  they  did   not  choose.  They believe that peace should rest  upon the rights of peoples, not the  rights  of  governments���������������������������the  rights  of peoples, great or small, weak or  powerful���������������������������tlieir    equal    right    to  freedom   ancl    security    and   self-  government,   and   to   participation,  upon fair terms, in the economic  ^opportunities���������������������������of���������������������������J lie=-J,vonl d=the-  German people, of course, included  if they will accept equality and not  seek domination.    The test, therefore, of every plan of peace is this:  Is it.based upon the faith of all the  peoples   involved   or  merely  upon  the word of an ambitious and intriguing   Government  on   the   one  hand and a group of free peoples  on  the   other?     This   is  the  test  which goes to the root of the matter;'and it is thc test which must  be applied.  "The purposes of the UnitedStates  in this war are known to the whole  world���������������������������to evc^y people to whom  the truth' has been permitted to  come They do not need to be  stated again. We seek no material  advantage of any kind. We believe  'that the intolerable wrongs done  in this war by the furious ancl brutal power of the Imperial German  Government ought to be repaired,  Military men believe Germany  will decide either to take a chance  of military defeat or will start  real peace negotiations now.  Should she decide, however, that  there is no peace chance now or  that her arms can ultimately  triumph, then she will fight on  for a year or two more.  Worth More Than Thoughts  Persons are always worth  more than thoughts. The thinker  who is more interested in his  thoughts than he is in persons  is not likely to help others by  his thinking. The one whose  chief-interest lies in helping  those nearest to him may be led,  through that service, into discov-  ery.of thoughts that will help a  nation or a continent or a world.  Even if no great thought fall to  him, he has still laid hold on that  but not at the expense of the sov- which alone makes life worth  ereignty of any people���������������������������rather a living: service. When you find  vindication-of the sovereignty both yourself so engrossed in work-  of those that are weak and those ing out some great thought that  .that are strong.   Punitive damages,   you cannot spare time or energy  the dismemberment of empires, the  establishment of selfish and exclusive economic leagues, we deem  inexpedient, and in fhe end worse  than futile, no proper basis for a  peace of any kind, least of all for  an enduring peace. That must be  based upon justice and fairness  and the common rights of mankind." ,  to do anything for those near at  hand, throw the thought overboard and get back into life and  love. It is worth more.  LOST���������������������������On thc road between Mabel  Lake and Hupel, a gold hunting-  case watch; engraved "H.M.W."
