E. E. Wheeler, who was killed in  action on June 28th last. Your son  was employed in '.he front line  trench and had just left that trench  for an attack on th" enemy's trenches when he was killed on thc  way over, an enemy shell exploding close to where he was, killing  him instantly and wounding several others. I regret very much thai  we have losl the services of such  a capable soldier and enthusiastic  worker; he was popular with all  ranks and ever ready to do his part,  and often more than was required  of him when circumstances required it. He was buried in a military cemetery some distance behind the lines, where a cross was  erected in his memory. Permit me  to extend to you, on behalf of all  ranks of the battalion, our sincere  sympathy in your bereavement."

Thc  West front, from lhe Belgian sea  coast to Switzerland���������������������������over '135  miles���������������������������is one gigantic battle, while  Italy's most formidable offensive  has thrown millions inlo a grapple  over a fronl of almost a hundred  miles.

HOOVER AGAIN GIVES WAPWG  In the "food administration bulletin"   issued,.by_.jhe_ Washington,  Sergt. Kenneth Glen  Sergt. Kenneth Glen was a ���������������������������member of the first contingent going to  France from the Okanagan. Me  experienced some of thc severest  engagements on the Western front  of the war, and was twice buried  in the trench hy enemy shells. The  last time, in addition to shell shock  he was wounded by shrapnel, and  was confined to the hospital seven  months, coming out with a still'  knee. After 1!) months in thc trenches, and undergoing shell shock  and shrapnel wounds, he thought  he had done his bit in this branch  of the service, so applied for service in the Flying Corps. He succeeded in passing the severest examinations and entered training  school. Late reports state that hc  has gone through all the schools  and has noxv been sent to one of the  channel bases for scout duty. This  i.s preliminary to active service al  the front, and he i.s looking forward to going to France al an  early dale. This photo shows "Ken"  in his Flying Corps uniform. Note  the remarkable development.  government under date of Aug. 21,  Herbert Hoover, food administrator  says safely for Europe rests in  what the United Stales saves from  her abundance and waste. In addition to lhe wheal shortage and the  threatened meat famine already announced by Hoover, Ihe late bulletin says "Ihe world's daily supplies  are decreasing rapidly.". -    ���������������������������  ��������������������������� Swine, "most ellicient machine  for production of animal fat," arc  dwindling fast in Europe, while  consumption demand grows. The  sugar supply, he says, "has been  tremendously reduced," and "'there  must be economy, in consumption  everywhere."  lie urges the American people to  cat fish and vegetables, of which  there is a great abundance. He  promises   no   reduction   in   prices.  "We are today in an era of high  prices," hc says. "We must maintain prices al such a level as will  stimulate production, for we arc  faced by a starving world, and the  value of the commodity lo the  hungry is greater than its price."  "Bul." hc adds, "the reverberations  of Europe's increasing shortage  would have thundered twice as  loudly during lhc coming year, and  it can now only be mitigated if we  exert a strong control, and this in  manv directions."

They hate to hear the talk  of peace, yet can offer nothing to combat it. It  seems to be recognized by all that in the end,  whenever that may bc, peace can only come by  and through the belligerent powers getting together on some basis which would mean justice  for all. Tt is not easy to find this possible, particularly with the war party in all states in control and the law of might the only law they will  recognize as right, ancl the people powerless to  turn from war to peace.  in Ihis connection a Washington dispatch says  that President Wilson's reply to the Pope's peace  offer may all'ord an actual working basis for  hastening thc end of lhc war. Germany and  Austria, it adds, already have moved in this direction. Thc belief grows that tlie President, in  courteously declining the Holy See's suggestion  of a basis of peace negotiations, will offer a constructive policy "in which thc liberals of thc  world may find real encouragement."

THURSDAY, AUGUST 2?. 1917  AGRICULTURAL^COURSE IN SCHOOLS  The dicision of the Board of School Trustees lo  inaugurate the agricultural'course in connection  willi Enderby high school will, wc feci sure, meet  wilh unanimous approval on lhc part of the  parents of school children and thc ratepayers  generally. The object of the course is to create  an active interest in agriculture and to instill a  practical knowledge of farm work in the minds  of the boys and girls which wi'- be of service to  them in helping to solve the problem of how best  lo conserve and direct thc work of thc young  people on thc farm. Modern education is running morc to practical study lhan lo study of  theories. The agricultural course is optional on  the part of thc pupils���������������������������the may take it or not as  they wish. What will be taught will bc by experimentation and demonstration. Garden plots  are lo be prepared and here thc hoys and girls  will plant and seed, hoe and rake, and do what  Authorities who know tell us that if people  knew the medicinal value of vegetables and  would follow thc advice of reason in making use  of the proper combinations, there would be very  little sickness in thc world. It is the common belief that sickness is natural, and the family physician is in many localities looked upon as something quite as necessary as socially proper. Very  few people realize that vthey poison their bodies,  cither by eating the wrong combinations of food,  or eating too much. More people die from overeating than from under eating or fromwhat our  prohibition friends call the curse of civilization���������������������������  strong drink. It is therefore important, in the  interest of health, to know what to eat and what  not to cat in combination. And to remember the  medicinal value of vegetables when wc eat them.  Turnips, onions, cabbage, cauliflower, water  cress and horseradish contain sulphur.  Potato, salts of potash.  French beans and lentils give iron.  Water cress, oil, iodine, iron, phosphate and  other salts.  Spinach, salts of potassium and iron. Food  specialists rate this thc most precious of vegetables.  Cabbage, cauliflower and spinach arc beneficial  lo aencmic people.  Tomatoes stimulate the healthy action of the  liver.  Asparagus benefits the kidneys.  Celery for rheumatism and neurlagia.  It is claimed the carrot forms blood and beautifies the skin.  Beets and turnips purify thc blood and improve  the appetite.  Lettuce I'or tired nerves.  Parsley, mustard, cowslip, horseradish, dock,  dandelion, and beet tops clear thc blood, regulate  lhc system and remove that tired feeling so peculiar to spring.

Many readers of the Press will be glad to hear  from Pte. Gerald Neve, wdio was one of the first  to join the.colors when, war was declared. Ptc.  Neve is an old soldier. Hc was in the South  African war,'and has tasted hardships. In thc  present war he _ was'in thc Somme fighting, ancl  was there buried, by shell explosion and was sent  to England lo recover from shell shock. He is  again in France and writes under date of July  28th:      , V  "I have been out here about a month. Just recently I received three issues of your paper, and  in the June 28th issue you referred to Maurice  Salt. May I add my testimony to that.of tlie  others. This war seems to make and unmake  men.

In the year which elapsed  since the prohibition party  flooded the country -with literature, and its speakers exponnded  the bill from platform and pulpit, a good many people have  forgotten the salient points of  the new bill.  The bill is : the same bill-  without a single material alteration" except as to the date when  it- is to become law���������������������������as that  which was passed by the Legislature "ofy 1916. and sent on to be  decided by referendum of the  people, As re-enacted it provides  that after the 1st of October  there shall be no liquor sold for  consumption within the Province  of British Columbia except  through government vendors,  who are to be paid by salary, and  who can only sell to certain limited classes of persons under rigid  restrictions. The government  vendors, under pain of dismissal  and conviction, are forbidden to  sell liquor for a beverage. They  can only sell alcohol for mechanical and scientific purposes, alcoholic liquors in limited quantities Xo druggists, dentists physicians, yveterinaries, superintendents for medical purposes,  and toy * ministers'- of- the gospel  for sacramental purposes.  Five gallons is the limit which  a druggist may purchase at any  time, two quarts the limit for a  physician, one pint the limit for  a dentist, and one gallon the  limit for a veterinary surgeon.  Provision is made that any  person may procure liquor for  medicinal purposes, but it must be  on a physician's prescription, and  only one purchase can be made  on one prescription. Outside of  these classes and conditions the  Pte. Harry Bogert writes The  Press from France asking space to ;  enable him lo thank "Ihe good peo-j  ! pic of Enderby who helped to or-'  Iganize and keep alive the Trench]  j Comfort Club.
