The Penticton Herald has moved  inlo new and up-to-date publishing  quarters. Some towns take pride  in helping to build up the local  paper, knowing that in so doing  thc merchanls and citizens generally are building up themselves.  Penticton is one of those towns.  We congratulate Br'er MacDougall  and his. gentleman  cow punchers.  A quiet wedding took place in  St. George's Church Wednesday  morning, when Miss Ormsby, of  Lumby, became the bride of Mr.  Olie Olien, of Trinity Valley, Rev.  J. H. Gretton officiating, with Mrs.  Cowan of Lumby, and Mr. James  Murphy as witnesses. Miss Ormsby joined her brother at Lumby  four years ago, coming direct from  the   old   home   in    Ireland.    Mr.  Olien is a prosperous farmer in the  fertile Trinity Valley.

Two of the greatest film plays  that ever have bcen seen in Canada  have been booked for- Enderby.  The first, "The Girl.Philippa," will  ap'pear on Saturday,. Sept. 29th.  This is a story of the invasion of  Belgium| and has created a sensation wherever it has been shown.  The second will be'.Rex Beach's  story "The Barrier," 'to' be played  ���������������������������on~Wedn'esday;--"-.Octv-^rd.v, These,  great picture plays are 'educational,  entertaining and inspiring, and the  Opera House management feel that  their enterprise in bringing them  to Enderby will be amply recognized by the citizens of the  district.  | Thc ladies of the Trench Com-  ! fort Club desire the overseas addresses of all Enderby boys who  have crossed the water in recent  months. Parents would confer a  favor by forwarding to the secretary of the Club, Mrs. S. H. Speers,  the last known address of their  sons to whom Christmas boxes are  to be sent.  Have you attended thc movies  lately? Mr. Gregory has been giving an excellent program each Friday night. The pictures are weil-  selected and well put on; particularly interesting is the weekly  movie magazine film, which gives  an instructive insight into many  channels of' business and commerce which the ordinary individual would never get in touch with  _\  otherwise.  Word was received thc past week  of the serious.illness of Enderby's  cx-m'ayor, J. L. Ruttan, who had,to  be removed from Testa. Lake, his  lumber- mill" headquarters, to a  coast hospital," where he had to undergo an operation for appendicitis or strangulation "of thc bowel.

Glen is the  first Enderby boy lo come back t  from thc front having seen real,  active service. He is one of Canada's best Ilight lieutenants, and  was twice decorated, once by  France and then by the King, for  distinguished service. Undoubtedly sonte public recognition will be .

L.  Ruttan,  and  Miss  Gladys Veola, McPherson, of Aria- .  strong, were married at New Westminster last week.   Prcvioiistohcr  marriage   the  bride   was   on';, the''  nursing'staff of the Royal ^Columbian - Hospital,   New.

They will reside at Sapperton.  Making thc -world safe for Democracy, is. one  thing���������������������������and perhaps the first thing. "Making  Democracy safe I'or the world is another thing���������������������������  quite as important. The world docs not heed and  will nol have the yoke of Prussianism thrust upon  it. Thc world docs need Democracy. But it  musl be a Democracy.morc ciTicicnt than that of  thc pasl. Freedom "under discipline is the best  ���������������������������Hiing.in tho world���������������������������cither-Tor, thc. individuaLor  thc nalion. Freedom run wild is lhc worst thing  in ,the world���������������������������worse lhan what wc know as  Prussianism. Without discipline and systematic  effort the individual soon becomes inefficient.  It is lhc same wilh nations. Thc lessons wc have  had' to learn in this war arc proof of this. Wc  have attempted to muddle through, only to become deeper involved. Il look us two ycars to  learn that Democracy must fail unless wc were  prepared to submit to a "dictatorship. And now  wc Have a dictatorship as rigid as that of  Prussia, and wc must hope as ellicient. In our  own democratic Canada our lawmakers have become dictators. And we propose through Ihem  to disfranchise citizens who are conscientiously  opposed to war. We propose also lo disfranchise  others who cannol be depended upon to vote in  favor of war. Let us not blind ourselves to  facts. This is Prussianism transplanted to Canada. And, in lhe final analysis, it is the only thing  that will give us victory���������������������������and this-depends upon  how ellicient we prove ourselves to bc.  If Canada were to continue the muddling policy  of the first two ycars of thc war thc Dominion  would be bankrupted wilhoul accomplishing anything. And what is true of Canada is.no less true  of England; it is no less true of thc United Stales,  our new ally. That our leaders are realizing this  is apparent from Uic firm determination to bring  these countries under what is lo all intents and  purposes martial law for thc period of thc war.  The great aim is toward centralized power. A  Democracy can become as autocratic as any autocracy dare bc. Tlie powers given to President  Wilson bv Congress arc said to be greater than  those assumed "bv the German Kaiser, lhc  United States learned ils lesson by watching the  mistake's of England. And at thc very commencement of its war againsl Germany that  country adopted rigid military measures which  set aside all civil law.   That Ihesc military meas  ures must become even morc far reaching than  they now are is certain.    And what our neighboring republic has done wc must do in Canada.  |    More particularly in the matter of production  ;and thc conservation ol" products, has the failure  been apparent, and this applies lo Canada as well.  Herein will great changes bc necessary, nol only  to safeguard the interests of the slate, but to pro-  ytcct. the pj'pducers as well.   Spcaking_on the qucs  i:���������������������������.,   ~('   ,K^( ���������������������������:i.,. I inn     I   ndin'*?    \\//ir.I- \\r   cn nc   nl'   r>nn  lion of distribution'Lcslie's Weekly says of conditions in' thc Eastern Slates: "The Salvation  Army reports that il has been unable lo sell and  almost unable lo give away the surplus lcllucc it  has raised on ils garden farms around Jersey  City. Farmers near Albany, N.V., ploughed under  then- spinach in some of the fields because it  brought only 10 cents a barrel. Some vegetable  crops in New Jersey were rolling on the ground  because it did not pay to market Ihem."' And this  magazine then asks:"Whal will happen when lhc  yield of millions of acres planted throughout the  country this year under pressure of a grealer demand i'or increased output, is pul on lhe markcl?  Thc Government estimates lhc value of these garden crops al $350,000,000. When this output is  rushed upon thc market who will be prepared lo  buv it, and what willybeeome ol* the surplus?"  What is said here applies as much lo Canada as  thc United Stales, for be il known lhat England  and here allies have appointed one purchasing  head in America foryall supplies lo bc sent overseas, and this head is in New York. Henceforth  all orders for Canadian goods must come through  New York, and Canada's share of war prosperity  will depend -upon how much money Canada  can raise by loans, etc., with which-to purchase  these supplies i'or England and her allies. According to plans consummated at Ottawa, Canada will share in America's war prosperity only  in proportion to the number of millions shc can  raise for the purpose of purchasing lhe supplies  to bc sent overseas.  ���������������������������There may be good reason for difference of  opinion in connection with the general war policy  or in connection with war at all, but there is no  room for difference of opinion as lo Democracy's  responsibility and thc responsibility of each individual striving to make Democracy etlicicnl.  Thc task is a large one, and there is room for all  lo lake a hand.  " PTE'. ,GEO.' DYSART KILLED -  The name   of   another   Enderby  boy appeared on the casualty list,  this  week���������������������������that  of  Pie.   Geo.  Dy-'  sart, and he paid the supreme sacrifice that a man can pay for his  country and tlag.   Pte. Dysart was  one of  the  first contingent to  go.  from  Enderby.    He was in many  engagements   before   finally   being  killed,  and   it was  hoped  that* he  was one-who bore a charmed life  and would finally come home unscathed.  - ii  .Harvest Thanksgiviitii__Services.  > The Harvest Thanksgiving Services will bc held in St. George's  Church nexl Sunday.

We believe lhal, while mistakes have no doubt been  made in handling the great problems arising out  of the war, Premier Borden and his colleagues  have, in the main, been actuated by lofty  motives and with the sole desire lo serve Canada  and the Empire faithfully and well. Bul in  bringing forward the proposed Elections Acl, and  The life of any community and the extent of its  growth and service, depends very largely if not  entirely on the spirit ol* the people making up its  population.   Before wc can have a dead lown or  a live town, avc musUiavc dead businessmen and  dead citizens or live' businessmen and live citizens, as the case may be.   Every cll'orl lhat brings  business lo lhe town is a help lo every citizen in  il.   We cannot help others wilhoul helping ourselves.   And, the law of compensation reads lhat  we  cannot  injure  anolher,  cither  by  word  of  mouth  or by deed, wilhoul injuring ourselves.  Enderby's opportunity is now.   Not "when the  war is over," but now. ' Good people have left lhc  town and district.   Many have sought new homes  where   lhc  opportunities'of'life  promise   them  more lhan they were getting here.    Many have  gone away.    But, listen:  they will come back.  AH do.    And they will bring others with Ihem.  Let us not forget that we have here onc. of thc  prettiest spots in Canada for a lown; surrounded*  by a  farming community whose  prosperity* is  limited only-by*what we raise and have to sell.  We have room  for hundreds of families.' The  land awaits the coming of the home-builder.

LAND SETTLEMENT BOARD " '  The name of Mr. Frank R. E. Dellart has been  gazetted as a member of the new land settlement  board which the Provincial Government appointed about a month ago.

How many wars and long-forgotten woes  Unnumbered, nameless, made like despair   '  In hearts long stilled; how many suns have set  On burning cities blackening the air,���������������������������  Yel dawn came dreaming back, her lashes wet  With dew, and daisies in her innocent hair.  Nor shall,'for this, the soul's ascension pause,   .  Nor the sure evolution of the laws  That out of foulness lift the flower to sun,  And out of fury forge the evening" star.  Deem not Love's building of the world undone���������������������������  Far Love's beginning was, her end is far;  By paths of fire and blood her feet must climb,  Seeking a loveliness she scarcely knows,  Whose meaning is beyond the reach of time.  ���������������������������R. LeGallicnne.  WAR PURPOSES  came he came to bring peace not the sword.  Between these two positions is the more reasonable ground that, even if war does not directly  produce good results, it, at least, releases forces  that make for human betterment; that under its  strain and stress it compels a spirit of sacrifice too  often unknown in days of peace,and ease.  A writer in Leslie's, taking this thought as his  cue, says "there is no nation engaged in the con-  lliet now raging which has not been changed by  ils iron discipline. Men said lhat France was decadent. The world thought France was all for  pleasure, and. France, loo, did. nol lake herself  seriously. Thc war has revealed France lo the  world and lo herself as slill possessing the soul  of a conquering race. France, who before  scofl'cd at religion, has again learned to pray."  Turning to America this writer adds: "To  America, thc war will mean a call from thc materialism, from thc pursuit of wealth and pleasure  for which thc world chiefly knows us, to higher  spiritual aims. - One compensation for lhc awful  havoc of Avar is that the suffering it inflicts calls  men back to those elements oi" .character in the  individual and the nation which abide forever."  If the Old Testament were to bc rewritten, to  day would bc"a good time in which to rewrite it.  Thc Old Testament is a book of wars. All of these  wars were interpreted by the prophets as Jehovah's method of disciplining the people. There  is no nation engaged in thc present conflict which  has not called,upon God for assistance and which  does not believe that God is on its side. And, true  today as of old, each has a vision of what it believes God would have it do to "thc enemy" in  thename of God.   It has becn well said that man  force. This is according to the warrior's business,  and all thc havoc he can wreck upon the world  he docs so in God's iiairic���������������������������jusl as thc men. of the  Old Testament did. . ,  Opposed to this type of man wc find thc pacifist  who says no good thing ever came out of war;  that-anything gained by war could have been  gained by peaceful methods with less havoc and  in a shorter, period of time.    That when Christ  Great Britain has advised the United States  that President Wilson's peace nolc in reply to the  Pope is- in effect Great Britain's reply. "Every  Briton wants and expects to win the war," reads  a London dispatch, "but there are many interpretations of the word victory. Whether the majority of the country is satisfied with the war  aims outlined by President Wilson cannot, be  answered yet, but it is certain there is a strong  Tory minority \j'hich is not satisfied."  Thc crowned heads of Europe have to hang  lo the chariot of Democracy to save their heads  these days. Thc ex-Czar of Russia was the other  day transferred from his palace prison to Siberia,  and now through the irony of fate he can taste in  a modified form thc suffering which thousands  of his former subjects endured when hc was one  of the big ones in thc concert of crowned trouble  makers of Europe.   War is a great leveller.  nhagen  Chewing  To.  IS THE WORLD'S BEST CHEW  It is manufactured  tobacco in its purest  form.  It has a pleasing  flavor.  It is tobacco scientifically prepared  for man's use.  It would bc no more undemocratic. for thc  Dominion Government to pass, an elections act  disfranchising all opponents of the government  than it would be to pass an act disfranchising a  single Canadian citizen conscientiously opposed  to.war.
