The businessman who does not  advertise in his home paper and  thus do his bit to keep the home  community--alive- -and-the -home  town the business centre of the  home district is showing a streak  of yellow that cannot but impair  his own business as well as that of  the community.  x\n arrangement was made on  November 1st which enabled the  King Edward Hotel to remain open  to the public.

Truly, our boys and girls must be  easy marks for these fraud concerns. A case was brought to the  attention of The Press some time  ago. The boy received an outfit of  breath perfumes which-he was to  sell,at 10c a package���������������������������in all $3.00  worth. , The boy worried the  neighborhood a week or two and  sold $1.00;worth. .The dollar and  the balance of. the goods unsold  were returned by mail to the  company engaged in this big business. About this time the following  letter was received from a "law"  firm in Toronto,-addressed to the  boy: ���������������������������_  Dated Jan. 24th,   1917-  You are hereby notified that a claim has this day  been placed in our hands fur collection against you  by the  Company, "of Toronto.  This said Company has placed -with us as evidence and record of your transaction, a copy of  your signed order for their goods j������������������o be shipped to  you on connignment. The company honored' your  order and consigned their goods to you on their  regular terms, to be sold and the money returned  promptly, or goods to be returned.'  You have kept their goods many months without paying for or returning them, notwithstanding all the letters the company sunt you asking  ycu to advise them aa to what .disposition you  have made of their goods. J   *"..,*" -  -You had no right to keep'the'.goods belonging  to the company without -accounting for them.  The goods were consigned to you and the proceeds  belong to the Company, ��������������������������� and must be  returned to their office. The company informed  you that you were at liberty, to return' unsold  goods and you have therefore no excuse for keeping them or not paying for them  Unless you remit the amount due this company  in ten days fron the abve dat6, we shall bring legal action against you, which will add extra cost  to your account. Our clients do "uot wish to be  forced to take this step but you con only save the  additional cost and trouble by'settling the account  immediately. ��������������������������� -    ' -" '   t.   ���������������������������  We will delay further action for,ten days only,  giving you an opportunity to adjust the laim: at  the end of ten days unlesa sanirfa'ctory aettlment  is made, we shall commence legal proceedings  without further notice. - **' .  Note��������������������������� For prompt attention to your reply, write  on the back'of this letter .and'enclose when remitting. _ It will save time and inconvenience... .  As the "goods" hadifceen returned  no attention was paid, tcif the 10-day  threat. Ten months .later^the" boy  'received^another ietter'5'frbrii"the  "law" firm, reading as <follows:  V ?  ���������������������������     Dated Nov.i9th. 1917.  ," Take notice that not having received settlement  from you of the claim of the above company  we  .are under instructions to take legal action to effect the collection of the amount due.: - ;  The^V -r- Co. has filed your signed order  for the consignment of their goods which you secured and which have not been paid for. We consider this sufficient evidence of-your liability for  the amount of their claim. , *  - Unless satisfactory settlement is made our attorney shall issue a writ against you and court costs  will be added to the amount of the above claim.  Your will nodoubt realize the advisability of avoid-,  ing the extra .expense and publicity by making  prompt settlement.  Note���������������������������All remittances must be made direct to  us. To avoid delay enclose this letter with your  reply.  Both these are' "stock" letters;  and make many- false statements.  It will be noted that in both these  letters thc "law" firm requests particularly that the letters be returned to the "olTice" of the "law"  firm. And,it is not surprising that_  a "law" firm engaged in this high  and    noble    calling    of    scaring  engaged  calling  pennies out of the pockets of boys  ancl girls should desire to get this  evidence of petty thieving out of  circulation. But what 'gets us, is  that our Canadian mails can be  used by these sneak-thieves to carry  on their noble work.  A favorite slogan of one of these  houses is this: "Don't let the stores  get all the money; beat Ihem to it."  And these bum concerns induce  our boys and girls to become a  nuisance to the neighborhood in  peddling to friends a lot of junk  ..which nobody has any use for. Thc  whole game is a fraud on the face  of it, and thc attention of thc post  oflice authorities should be drawn  to it. No respectable newspaper  would > publish an advertisement  so obviously bait to catch minnows.  They have to icsort to the Sunday  school papers and like periodicals.  The individual amounts taken in  these transactions are not largc.and  the ma Iter is not looked into by  parents, but in the aggregate the  sums���������������������������generally from $2 to $5���������������������������  must reach into the thousands each  year. It is "big business" for the  Sunday school press, but does not  speak well for thc good sense of  our Canadian boys and girls, nor  our homes and community when  these petty grafters can operate as  they do. Numerous cases similar to  the one cited here have been complained of from time to time. It  seems to us that any child ought to  be taught very early in life that to  expect something for nothing is  morally wrong, and that when he  or she enters into a game of this  kind the small fish must expect to  be gobbled up by the shark.,  Stand behind thc man behind  the gun���������������������������buy Victory Bonds.  Every Seat will be Contested  Sir Wilfrid's suggestion to his  followers, that contests should-take  place in as many constituencies as  possible was apparently scrupulously followed, as but very few  Unionist candidates were declared  elected by acclamation on Monday.  In our own riding, Yale, Hon. Martin Burrell went in by acclamation.  But it was more through a fluke  than good intentions that the  necessity for an' election in this  constituency was avoided. An independent candidate ca^ie into the  field with nomination papers just  two minutes after the tick, of the  clock when all nominations had to  be filed, and the returning officer  refused to accept them.  Hon. Martin Burrell is the only  candidate in' the Province elected  by acclamation, according to the  official list of nominees published  in the Vancouver Province. In all  other constituencies Laurier-Lib-  erals were brought out to opposje  the Union candidate. Ottawa is  authority for the statement that  only eight Unionist candidates in  the Dominion, out of a total of 235,  are elected by acclamation, while  Laurier. Liberals going in by acclamation number ten, all of Quebec.  - In the city of Victoria,,Dr. S. F.  Tolmie is the Unionist candidate;  .A. S.. Wells, Socialist," and Stuart  Henderson,, Laurier Liberal.  - In Vancouver, H. H. Stevens and  Major R. C. Cooper, Unionists, are  opposed by W. W. B. Mclnnes and  Chas. Macdonald, Liberals, with  Labor candidates also in the field.  .In   Burrad,  S.  J.  Crowe  is  opposed by,P. Donnelly; in Carriboo,  F. J. Fulton by R.

In the "Dry" Belt  A citizen of Fcrnie was thc victim of a practical joke a few nights  airo. which illustrates how successfully the prohibition act operates  in that mining town. A small pig  was placed in thc victim's bedroom while hc was enjoying the  evening at a "dry" banquet. The  citizen returned to his room and  was retiring to bed in a very happy  frame of mind when thc small pig  silently came from under thc bed  and innocently gazed at him wilh  an inquisilivc stare, as small pigs  do. Thc prominent citizen uttered  one wild shriek, his whiskers shot  straight out and hc rushed from  the room repeating at thc top of his  voice, "I've got 'em! I've got em!"  Out of the wreck and chaos  LATEST WAR BULLETIN  Jaffa, the seaport of Jerusalem,  has fallen into the hands of the  British. Jerusalem is now almost  isolated, and military observers in  London believe the British advance  on it will be rapid, and that it will  fall an easy prey to Allcnby's men.  The . Bolshcviki     revolutionary  forces are reported to have overcome  the   forces  led   by   Premier  Kerensky,- and   are   now. in   full  control   of   Russian   governmental  affairs.   - According   to   Petrograd  newspapers, Emperor William.nasi  informed the:Russian'Soldiers and  Workmen's   deputies  that  he  will -  treat for peace only with the legal  successor to  the Imperial  government  or with  the constituent  assembly.    In   this   connection,   the  Volia Noroda says it has information  that  the Soldiers  and  Work-.  men's government, jn the event of" J;  its failure to receive replies from   -'  the belligerents by Nov. 23rd, re-'  serves the right to make' peace on   ���������������������������.  its own account, after which, if the  war continues, Russia -win occupy  a neutral-position.

He carries with him no preconceived notion as  lo how these yellow peoples of thc Pacific arc to  bc brought inlo thc plan of democracy, but he  was firmly convinced lhat there shall be formulated a democratic understanding between these  yellow races and ourselves that will forever  make impossible a recurrence of jungle-law rule.

THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 2\ 1917  'THE LAW OF THE WORLD'S GOOD WILL"  Tt was a rare treat to a large congregation  gathered in lhc Prcsbvlcrian Church last Sundav  morning to hear Dr. J. A. Macdonald, thc warmhearted, eloquent orator and editor of the Toronto Globe, speak on "Thc Law of thc World's  Good Will." Few men have had so varied an  experience as Dr. Macdonald, and fewer slill  would have taken out of life so much as he to  make material for such a discourse as hc gave  his Endcrhy audience. .Seldom indeed can a small  ���������������������������.community such as lhis expect to hear so eloquent and mellow an orator as Dr. Macdonald,  and Enderby may well feel honored to have.had  the opportunity.  Dr. Macdonald spoke for nearly onc hour and  a half, and in lhal lime there was not a moment  that he did not have his audience following close  at the heels of an idea worlh while. He would  lead the mind along paths of spiritual beauty  and in forensic light, then, before going beyond  lhe depths would somersault thc mind back lo  solid, earthy * fact and make one stand erect before the immutable law of thc world's good will, j  Carrying the thought from thc home to the com-  -iii-unilx. llie community to the slate, lhcjUalc to  thc nation, lhc nalion to thc world, Dr. "Macdonald pictured what lhc world should bc if the  law was understood and practiced in all man's  relations onc wilh lhc olher.

He used to wave  lhat old bandana with religious regularity.  Today good Canadians arc likewise making a  virtue of lhcir simple duty. They pride themselves on confining lhcir passion for "cats" to thc  proverbial "war time supper." Winking at excesses in othcr directions, they wave the "simple  war-time supper" Hag as the virtue which covcr-  cth all. And lhis failing is not confined to any  particular section or strata of society.

Better order some now Thursday, November 22, 191i  THE ENDERBY PRESS AND WALKER'S WEEKLY  are only at the beginning of this  strange ancl mysterious thing that  is pasing over thc world."���������������������������Lord  Northclille, in a speech at Chicago  a few days ago.  The meaning of the day: "This  is the strange day.   This is the day  of   His   coming.     Terrible   and  ,   strange is His coming; with tramp-  lings of innumerable armies, desolate  and   salt-sown  fields  strewn  with corpses; soil ploughed, crater  furrowed with monstrous shells;  the night-sky starred' arid streaked  with deadly shrapnel.    It is the  clay of judgment.   It is the end of  the world.   It is the battle of Armageddon.   History has two phases.  One, the slow preparation���������������������������forces  brewing, fires long kindling,waters  gathering,    electricity    generating.  The other, a sudden change: at last  fhe  barrier   falls, ,the  vessel  explodes, the electric force leaps oul  in flash ancl fury,-the dam breaks,  the floods roar forth.  This is the clay of accomplishment. The bell has rung. The  signaVhas been given. The titanic  potencies accumulating through  centuries have come to a head.  Evolution moves slowly, as a glacier; but at times, leaps,- as an  avalanche. This is the extravagant  day, the day of melodrama, of the  impossible, of miracles and madness. The world is drunk with  freedom. ^.They are toppling over  thrones, sweeping away ancient  dynasties, bursting through venerable creeds, snapping the rusted  chains of tradition; smashing impregnable institutions.- ���������������������������r"  ' "Nature has her own plans. God  niaketh the wrath of man to praise  Him. What began as a quarrel between rival nations will end as a  triumph for huriianity. Out of the  clash of kings, 1he people will  emerge victorious.. Democracy is  using the quarrelling >autocracies  to kill each other.J  "Terrible is the day of thc Lord  and past understanding. Yet His  purposes are for the health of the  world. After the storm, the ozone-  laden sunshine. After the volcanic  upheaval, thc smiling ancl fertile  continent. And after all this destruction���������������������������peace, with law. He is  trampling the wine-press; from the  crushed grapes shall flow the sweet  wine.  "After this the ships of 'the  world shall sail more safely, the  lanes of commerce shall be opened,  the barriers between nations  l wealcer and their bonds stronger.  After this shall men work with  _gladdery songs, .women, iloye with  less fear. Look forward. Look to  the end.   Look to lhe golden year.  Sweeter shall the roses blow  In those far years, those happier  ycars;  And   children   weep, when we lie  low  Far fewer tears, far softer tears.  ���������������������������Dr. Frank Crane.  The fruition of thc day: "Our  footprints may be stained with  blood, but we will reach thc  heights, and then in front we will  see the rich valleys and plains of  a new world."���������������������������Premier Lloyd  yGcorg'e, in a recent speech.  Mgll.lM[MlM[l[[M{MIM[M^lMIMIMP[M[MM[EIM[lMllMIM  Promts of tjf JW������������������ jft;-"  The mystery of the day: "Wc are sick souls and sick nations:  there is misery, fear and moral  ill-health in abundance in the  world. And "in the midst of the  world stands Christ, to heal and  bless and save. - Yet men, knowing this, being aware of the work  He has done and is doing, shut  out of their lives, and, moreover,  affect to marvel at the "failure"  of the Gospel. The marvel may  well be on the part of Christ  that the.world is sp set against  its true health. Every day we  hear: "Why is Christ so powerless���������������������������why-are there so few  mighty works?" And the answer remains the same���������������������������because  of human unbelief. Faith and unbelief, signify an intellectual attitude toward God.,,That there is  Faith is openness . to Him, the  spiritual blesstng. True moral relationships between men arc necessary for true blessedness: it  cannot be otherwise. Unbelief is  the definite closing of the soul to  God. Th 3 result is the creation  of a gulf between the soul and  God. The question to-day is not  "Why is God inactive?" but:  "Why is the world determined  to refuse His mercy and His fuller life?"-The Christian.  Saving Food  Ninety per cent,of the food  consumed in. Canada passes  throngh theliands of our women.  There is, then, a great responsibility resting upon them to save  supplies heeded overseas and to  utilize perishable foods. Waste in  all its many forms should be regarded not only as a sin, but as  actual disloyalty in war time. It  is important that sufficient and  nourishing food should be provided, suited to the different members of the family.  Arbitrary rules in this case are  of very little value, but the general principle is that the women  can do no more important patriotic service than by guarding  against waste. The question of  substitute is very largely in their  hands. A little saving in every  home, when multiplied by all the  Dominion, would mean a large  amount of food products saved  for the soldiers.  You may feel that you do not  need to sign the food pledge ���������������������������  that you will save all you can  without it. But how about your  neighbor? The actual pledge may  help her to remember the duty of  food service. The housewives of  Canada, pledged to food service,  and living up to their, pledges,  will form a powerful factor in the  struggle against Germany and  against starvation. .

He  marvelled because of their unbelief. " That the Omnipotent  could be paralized, the Illimitable  restricted, the Creative hands  bound, is marvel enough to us.  The marvel, however, was with  our Lord. He marvelled at their  blindness and their easy repudiation of the precious boon of  health and fuller life that He  brought them. Rather than admit  His claims, and open their life to  His gifts, they chose to hug their  diseases and weaknesses.The perversity of Nazareth is continually  repeated in modern life.

It is believed that this privilege will be greatly appreciated  by thousands 01 small investors,  who will be assured of the absolute safety "of their investment  even against fire or carelessness  or any other accidental cause of  loss. This improvement in the issue will involve extra work upon  the Department, but Sir Thomas  White considers that its benefits  will oll'sct the labor involved.

C.  The "Bay's" Good Example  A notable example in the effort to stimulate the sale of bonds  in Canada's Victory Loan of $150,-  000,000 has:been set by the Hudson's Bay, the oldest mercantile  corporation in the British Empire.  The company made the first  application in Winnipeg for bonds  to the extent of one million dollars, Winnipeg being the head office of the company in Canada,  and the application was put in by  Mr. James Thomson, land commissioner, the oldest employe in  point of service.  The purchase of a million dollars'worth of bonds by "the old  company" should satisfy the  most skeptical that the investment is an admirable one from a  business standpoint; and in other  ways the Hudson's Bay Company  is endeavoring to stir the patriotic impulses of the people, and to  ever^thfulempmmai^  subscribe to the loan.

Working While You Play  Did you ever think'what your  acl in the newspaper is doing for  you? When you close your store  and go home to your fireside, not  thinking about your business,  then-the paper is being pored  over in hundreds of homes���������������������������the  homes from which your trade is  drawn. And there is your acl doing its work silently, but surely,  ancl if you have taken the pains  to make-it attractive its work will  be all the more effective. This is  repeated over and over, and is no  doubt what inspired some writer  to call newspaper advertising a  "silent drummer"  "Do  you  think  we  are  winning  th  e wi  ir?"  asked  the  tirst  soldier.

THE POPULAR  Variety Store  Pyman Block, Cliff St.,      Enderby  Thirty years ago began a movement at Chautauqua Lake, N.Y., which now; includes 5,000  annual assemblies in Canada and the United  States. It brings the highest class of instruction,  inspiration and entcrfainmenflo over T27O0O7O0O-  people, who could not secure such ��������������������������� remarkable  programs'were it not for the'modern Chautauqua system. The greatest talent is thus secured  at the ends of the earth and brought into towns,  and communities of all sizes, wherever public-  spirited citizens are willing to make it possible  by guaranteeing the sale of enough season tickets  to barely cover the expense. Some of the talent  brought to Vernon next month, Dec.~ 14-15-17,  had to be secured two or three years in advance.  Eighteen of Vernon's leading businessmen have  guaranteed the sum required to bring these  Chautauqua artists to that-city. Chautauqua is  primarily a builder of civilization,, not a money-  making enterprise. These gentlemen will pay  over to thc patriotic funds all moneys taken in  over and above the guarantee. To be on the  Chautauqua map has come to bc an indication of  culture and civic enterprise, and Vernon is to be  congratulated on the enterprise shown in securing these great attractions, including the Royal  Hawaiian Quartette; Julius Caesar Nayphe, in  "The Oriental Pageant"; Lelia M. Blomfield, in  "Stories and Customs of New Zealand"; Capt.  W. J. Hidley, lecturer, on thc "Reign of the Common People"; thc Chautauqua Festival Orchestra; and Walter E. Stern, with his lecture, "The  Far Country."  >(0  fl  w  0  IJ  1  fi  11  fi  i  w  fi  fi  I  Help your country to help you���������������������������buy a Victory  Bond.
