The boy was out of danger when  Mr. Johnston left for home.  Mr. John Christian, 78 years of  age, a pioneer of Armstrong, quietly passed away last Thursday evening while sitting by the fireside  with the light low. It was noticed  that he failed to respond 'to a question asked in the conversation, or  to take any interest in what was  said. Later on investigation he  was found to he dead.  In our report of the very enjoyable social evening given last week  in honor of the homecoming of  Pte. J. J. Mowat, we inadvertently  neglected to mention the excellent  vocal solos sung by Miss Laing  and Miss Robinson, which were so  heartily received by the audience.  A social dance at Grindrod last  Friday week netted the hall committee something over $25. Of  this amount $19 was placed to the  credit of the Military Y.M.C.A. in  the Bank of Montreal, the balance  of the receipts being spent to replenish the hall's supply of crockery, etc.  Next   Saturday   evening  in   the  Farmers Ask Consideration  A largely attended meeting of  the farmers of the District Municipality of Spallumcheen was held  in the City Hall, Armstrong, on  Tuesday of this week. The meeting was called by Reeve Keary for  the purpose of a farmers' discussion on the Military Service Act in  relation to the help required on  the farms 'throughout the district  shape of farm help should bc conserved. His son had been called,  and he had ' not waited to be  drafted but had gone right down  and joined up at once. If they  were now going to exempt farmers then all men who had- done as  his son had done should be called  back to -work on the farms again.  During the past three years he and  his help had doubled their production on the farm, and it was a  Reeve Keary took the chair, and!large fa"n' to������������������- He h������������������Ped that no  C.

Government ' were not inclined  towards this idea. Thc' executive  proposed this alternative and it  amounted to this, that a census be  taken of all fhe man power of B.C.  and all available help placed just  where it was most needed. The  Government would consider this.

Further he stated that Chinamen  on the coast were asking $6 per  day���������������������������a prohibitive wage.  Mr. F. Hassard stated that in his  neighborhood some people had the  idea that this meeting had been  called as against conscription, but  he knew such was not the case.

Speak ahead for your Xmas  dinner at the King Edward."  Men and Things as Seen Thro' Hank Reklaw's Periscope  Before another issue of The Press, the elections will be over, and we shall know whether  or riot the Union Government is to continue.  It does not seem possible that at this time Sir  Wilfrid Laurier could command anything like  a fplloAving sufficiently strong to put him in  power over the combined forces which are ih  the contest against him. With the press of the  country almost solidly opposed, and other  conditions working against him, there docs not  seem to be a possible chance to win. Yet, there  are unmistakable signs of an undercurrent of  thought and feeling which cannot be ignored.  With Quebec solidly for him, and here and there  constituencies strongly contested, and in doubt,  it would be folly to say Sir Robert Borden will  have a walk-over. Nobody realizes the need of  hard fighting better than thc Government  leaders themselves, and they are making the  most of every advantage which is theirs.  Not having a contest on in this constituency,  we little realize how bitter the fight has bcen in  other parts .of the Province, and in neighboring  provinces. A war-time election is a bad thing  at best, and when reverses are in the air, and the  nerves of thc people high-strung, it is then that  anything is possible. Faith in Canada is'now the  essential thing. No matter what be the outcome  of the elections, the principles of right and justice for which Canada ever has stood will'still  prevail. Ancl if the boys at the front require  reinforcements they will get them no matter  who is in authority. Canada's loyalty is not  bound up in any onc party or set of individuals.  Premier Borden nnd his ministers -have had a  most strenuous.life, of service in the interest of  Canada. They served as-faithfully as any set  of men chosen by the people could have served.  We believe Sir Robert Borden will still bc Premier after December 17th. But if thc vote, indicates that a change is desired, Sir Robert can  step down as gracefully as dozens of other  premiers in Allied countries have had lo do  since the war began, without any serious consequences to those countries or to the prosecution  of the war.  Fine Poultry Exhibit  Perhaps there have becn larger  winter poultry shows in the Northern Okanagan, in point of entries, lhan the winler show held at  Armstrong-last week, but for quality in each class and fine appearance of the birds, there can be no  question about lhe ,1917 .show  leading all previous seasons. The  bfrds to win in almost any of the  classes had to run close to the  mark of perfection, in weight,  plumage and shape.  Enderby poultry fanciers were  on hand with some very fine pens,  and all came home with prizes.  ; Mr. G. H. Smedley's Black Min-  orcas carried off everything in  their class, and his pen won first  in the Mediterranean class,and for  the best bird in this class.  Mr. Old ford's Cornish games attracted more attention^ than any  pen in the show. He won first  cock, 1st cockerel,. 1st and 2nd  pullet, 1st pen, and the best pen  in the Cornish class. He was also  awarded the best pen of games,  and-carried off the Association,  special prize for thebest bird bred  by exhibitor.  Eddie     Sparrow's     Campanese  won 1st hen, 1st and 2nd cockerel,''  1st pullet and 2nd pen.  W. J. Graham's White Rocks led  in one of the best and largest  classes in 'the show.

J. E. Pacey, under date of Nov-M,  tells of the latter's death in action.  It speaks the warm-hearted fellowship existing between comrades, and carries to the soldier's  bereaved home lhal spirit of loyalty found on thc battlefield:  "Dear Mrs. Pacey: It is with  the greatest regret and sinccrest  sympathy that I attempt to write  these few lines to you. Since  coming to thc 7th Canadian Batt.,  some months ago,I quickly formed  an acquaintance with your Into  husband, Corp. J. E. Pacey, and  ever since wc have becn the greatest of friends. I can assure you,  words fail to describe to you how  deeply I feel his loss, both as a  bosom companion and as a brave  comrade. Before going in to the  line this last time he gave me his  pocket book, containing a few  pcitures of his three dear little  children, also of yourself, which  I will forward on to you at the  earliest opportunity; just one of  the kiddies I will keep, if I may, as  a slight remembrance of one of  the best "pals" I ever met.  "He surely died a soldier's death.  Hc did not suffer. He died instantaneously (which I know will bc.  some slight consolation) and was  buried  in a soldier's grave.  "Again expressing my "heartfelt  sympathy and that of his comrades, especially in No. 3 Platoon,  in your sad bereavement, and may  God in his mercy help you to bear  the burden so suddenly cast upon  you.  "Believe mc, dear Mrs. Pacey,  "Yours   very  sincerely,  "Pm J. V.

THURSDAY,   DECEMBER IS, 1917  Words cannol express lhe sorrow and thc  horror fell by Canada at lhc destruction of lhat  fair city on thc Atlantic shore. 11 is Canada's  catastrophe; Halifax's suffering���������������������������pain, anguish.  It is Ihcir's lo weep; our's lo succor and mourn  wilh dry eyes and bleeding hearts.  DISHONEST PACKING  On Monday Mr. J. E. Crane went to Armstrong lo investigate why 'settlement had not  been forthcoming for several boxes of apples  shipped by him for a local grower. He thought  he had a good case. When hc entered the office  of the Armslrong shipper and made his complaint, hc was politely taken inlo thc packing  room and the boxes of apples opened for his inspection. From the side of lhc boxes apples  rolled out not as large as-hen's eggs. Some of  ihem were withered and scabby. Others apparently had heen bruised in the packing and  were rotten in spots. The apples on top of the  boxes were lair/in size and quality. Mr. Crane  carried home a* few.of lhc apples taken from the  center..   They should be seen to be appreciated.  This1 is Lhe quality of' apple-pack which is  pulling our growers.in bad with thc consumers.  These apples should have bcen repacked before  &hipi)ing,Lj)aLJh^^  cost of'repacking, and thc shipper sent them out  jus Las he. received Ihem from thc grower. Thc  grower undoubtedly will claim lo be the injucrd  parly, lie should have fed his centre-of-lhe-box  apples lo lhe pig.'; and saved boxing.    .  A great injury is done the apple-growers of  lhe district by a single-shipment such as this.  These apples were intended for Alberta points,  where lhcy- would have gone into competition  "Willi apples from Washington and oilier apple-  growing districts. Imagine what the buyer of a  box of apples lhal would open up as these apples  did would say on making the discovery lhal iic  had heen bilked! Pretty bad advertising for thc  district, don't you  think?  It i.s reported by lhc postollice authorities that  80,000 bags of mail were destroyed al Halifax,  including Ireneh mail and Christmas parcels for  lhe soldiers. All incoming and outgoing British  and French mails accumulated I'or the past two  weeks were deslroved.  AWFUL FORCE OF THE EXPLOSION  The staff correspondent of lhe Montreal Star  al Halifax wires lhal paper: "II is probable that  lhere has never been an explosion of such force,  even in the war zone. To begin with, the vessel  contained 2800 tons of the highest explosive  known, three limes as powerful as fulminate.  A powder expert has since reckoned that had the  cargo bad a solid foundation under it there  would nol have been so much as a live cat or  ral lefl in Halifax. . . . Tbe explosion raised  a lidal wave in llie' harbor lhal went forty feel  over the tracks of lhe Intercolonial Railway and  lifted and swept away loaded freight cars. To-j  day. lhe railway loss in rolling slock was placed;  al. MOO loaded freight ears, 100 passenger cars  and twenty locomotives." )  ,. When will Enderby reach the point of conclusion that thc only way to make the local hospital succeed is to put it on a straight business  basis? Wc have in thc past made it a semi-  charitable institution���������������������������something to be contributed to���������������������������a sort of depository for fruit, vegetables, butter, eggs, milk and old rags; to be  added to now and then by lawn fetes, card  parties, etc. Do not misunderstand us. These  efforts have all bcen worthy, and particularly  the women of Enderby and district deserve all  kinds of credit for thc hard work they have done  on behalf of this worthy inslilulion. But, after  all, are these efforts to be commended? Is this  policy the only policy by which lhc Enderby hospital can bc kept in existence? In point of fact,  it is tlie only policy that has becn tried, and results today do not speak very.highly of it. And  yet, when lhc suggestion is made with the object  of placing the hospital on a straight business  basis, hands go up and wc arc told it can't be  done. Surely it could be tried. And if it did not  succeed the failure could not be worse than that  of the imbusiness-like policy of the past.  Enderby has now a duly incorporated hospilal  board, incorporated under the Hospital Acl of  British Columbia. .As a hospital board it must  have full charge of the hospital; il musl pay the  nurse and assistants regular salaries, and must  collect all hospital fees and account for their disbursement as provided by law.  Heretofore the matter of. hospital fccs,receipts  and expenditures, etc., have, been left to. thc  nurse in. charge, who ran the hospital i'or the  fees 'made. The city provided the hospilal  building and furnishings, and paid thc  water rate and taxes on the -property, while thc  Okanagan Saw Mills, Ltd.,-"furnished the lights,  up to tlie closing of the hospital some lime ago.  Last year the city paid out-on behalf of thc local  hospital the sum or$438. In addition lo this the  city paid $457.50 for the tubercular case sent  from the city three or four years ago to thc  provincial hospital at Kamloops. This $457.50  per year could as well have been given to the  local hospilal all these vears if an isolation ward  for  Lb. patients had. been provided.  Under the Hospital Acl, provision is made for  deducting $1.00 per monlh froniVill men working in mills, factories, mines, lumber camps, etc.  This is known as the hospilal fee, and its payment entitles each man tef medical and hospital  care, in case of sickness. Usually this fee of  5-1.00 per man per monlh is. divided equally between llie attending physician and the hospilal.  Occasionally the division ii. 25c to the .physician  and 75c .to the hospital. In othcr cases thc physician runs .the hospital and takes> all the fes  Of course, in this case lhc physician pays the  salaries of hospilal nurse and assistants. With  all thc money thai is paid as hospilal fees by the  lumber camps and mills in this locality, there  should nol bc any dillicully in keeping the local  hospital running". To be frank about it, however,  Dr.. Keith has stated he cannot afford to spit these  fees with the local hospital, and ha has declined to  run the hospital. We do not wish* to make this discussion personal. But upon all these points  must hinge the success of the local hospilal. And  if "we continue to ignore them 'there can bc no  hope ever of keeping the hospilal open. Thc  Hospital Act makes specific provision in regard  to'hospital.'fees, and in addition to these _^cs  paid by the men, the government also stands  ready to pay $1 per day per patient toward the  4:ipkeep=oiMhe^hQspitaL^^^  kept and forwarded monthly-to the proper department. If is not the fault of the Government  lhat this data has not been forwarded from Enderby and that wc arc therefore at this time not'  favored wilh thc Government grant.  Both at Armstrong and Salmon Arm \ye may  see local hospitals in successful operation. At  Salmon Arm a board of ladies have full charge.  Thcy__.p_ay_lii.c. salaries of nurse and assistant, and  lhe. running expenses. They collect all hospital  fees, and receive thc regular Government granl.  The municipality of Salmon Arm pays the rent,  and waler and 'light rales. At Armstrong lhe  nurse runs her own hospilal. She gels a granl  of $30 per month from the city and $25 per  monlh from the municipality. For these grants  she undertakes to give free'hospilal care lo any  indigent patient sent in by lhc city or municipality, and out of thc grant given by the cily  she pays her-hospilal waler and light rates, rent, w^xjy*  etc. From these figures wc wish to draw a *^^@e9  lesson. We have heard a great deal about how -^/>*���������������������������  liberally our neighboring towns contribute to  their hospitals, and how much the City of Enderby should be doing. But we think all will  agree with us that tlie fault does not lie in this  direction. Last year, as"'before stated, Enderby  paid $138 for ils hospilal, and in addition, $457  for an indigent patient. Draw your own con-  conclusion. Do you think- we are on the right  track?  On the Verge of Revolution?  A profound shock is given  to the most consevative country in the world by the flat statement of the London Times that-  England is upon the verge of a  revolution. That great organ of  British opinion roundly .alleges  that sinister influences have  gained control of the trade unions  and that the workers are blindly  following a path which can only  lead to revolution. It says:  "The. bulk.of the men do not  understand whither they are  being led. They do not know  that persistence in the present  course will jeopardize the successful issue of the war.

Fiddling on the Somme .  Late last fall, after the Somme  offensive was over three Canadian  regiments arrived on the Arras  front and dug   themselves into  they brown mud   to  wait  until  spring made   another, advance  practicable.   Two "hundred feet  " away were three Prussian regiments. There was little real fighting.  When the routine of trench-  life became monotonous  a com-  , pany .would blaze away  at   the  ~ other trench- for * a few minutes.  Want No More Glossing  "What, briefly, does it seem  that the public want in this the  fourth year of the, biggest war in  history?  "Briefly they want to be told  things they do not know; not what  they have been told dozens of"  times already. They want to have  things thdy do not understand explained to them. They no longer  want platiudes obvious to all.  "They do not want to be told  by the Ministers riot to lose heart  At night it was so quiet that con- and to 'set their teeth',' -and to  versation ih one trench carried go oh till wewin and till the might  over to the other, and there was  a good'deal of (good natured kidding backhand" forth.rThe Canadians were* especially pleased by  the nightly concerts of the Germans, and applauded heartily the  spirited .fiddling of one hidden  musician. The rest; of the story  can best., be told by Corporal  Harry Seaton in the New York  Evening Mail:  "One night we held up a piece  of white cloth as a sign of  truce," he said. "With permission of our colonel I called out and  asked the Boche if we couldn't  -have a bit pf a concert. It was  agreed, and Schulman���������������������������that was  the fiddler's name���������������������������crawled out  from his trench, and one or two  of our Johnnies crawled out, too,  just as a sign of good faith.  ^���������������������������"Believe-mereveryone enjoyed  the rest of- that evening and  when things grew   quiet    next  day somebody yelled for the fiddler to strike up a tune. He was  a cobbler in Quebec before the  war and two of our men knew him  and his wife and kids. Tt did not  take much coaxing after that and  he came out on the strip of 'No  Man's Land' and played every  night. In February we were  ordered on to another part of  the field and another regiment  took our old trenches. Of course,  in the hurry of departure nobody  thought of Schulman.  "That night he brought his  stool out as usual, but before- he  could draw bow across the  strings, the strangers filled him  full of lead. Of course, they did  not know.  , "The chaplain told us the story  next day and we took up a collection to send to the family in  Benin. I wonder if they ever got  it!"  ,       Death Lurks in High Heels  In a recent issue the Scientific  American tells its readers that  in 1916 1,149 deaths resulted  from the t wearing of high  heels, fatal injuries being caused  by the heel catching in step or  clothing and throwing the wearer downstairs. In the same year  4,000 were crippled. As the hand  of man is turned against the fly  so must the foot of womankind  turn against the high heel. J  and militarism l of Prussia . are  finally and forever vanquished.  What. theyT had rather be reassured abbutis-that Ministers are  setting their teeth and doing all  they can to vanquish the might  and militarism of Prussia,. with  deeds and foresight, instead of  only in speeches and prophecies.  "They want solid facts and definite assurances ih regard to food  the U-boats, our.apparent naval  impotence for offence, the situation in Italy, in Russia, and in  Holland (over , our blockade).  They do not want to be told that  the German offensive power is  'forever gone.'-and then to see  Riga lost and Petrograd evacuated.  "In sum, there seems to be no  collaboration, no unity of utter-  ancerno-sense-of-the-sternerneed  oi the hour, no knowledge of the  public need in more than half of  these speeches. We want to be  spoken to not as though we were  children, needing to be soothed  or stimulated, but as grown men  who have lost and suffered, but  are still strong to endure. We  want strong guidance, not vague  prophecies; facts, not dreams;  successful results, not brilliant  glossing over of partial failures."  ���������������������������London Sunday Pictorial.

They rush to the train every time a troop train comes in,  and because they never will see  these boys again take' indecent  liberties of speech and conduct.  They .know they are 'safe.' They  know they can let themselves go  without fear of going too far, or  of having to meet the consequences' of their indecency.  "Where are their' -mothers?  These mothers should know that  when a girl has gone too far once  even if it brings no consequences,  that girl has a long walk back to  decency. She can, of course, get  back.
