Pays Tribute to Percy Stevens  Speaking of the loss of Pte. Percy  Stevens, who was one of 170 young  American soldiers to go down with  the transport Tuscania, the Bend,  Ore., Press echoes what is in the  heart of friends of the gallant boy  in Enderby and district, when it  says:  "In America thc personality- of  Percy Stevens was not eclipsed by  ten million of his kind,' th* joyous  cxlmljcrcnt youth of thc nation.. On  board the Tuscania he. became an  individual, one o.f two thousand  young men vibrant with the spirit  of patriotism' and inspired by the  call of a world for freedom: ,Today, sleeping beside ' th* ocean  waves on a rocky coast "of .an  island of Scotland he is ont of one  of onc hundred and seventy, on  whom thc attention of the world  has been riveted, toward whom the  hearts ' o'f a nation have ,l>een'  turned in helpless sympathy,' and  whose . names have been <- carved  high among its list of heroes. In  one short hour - he stepped from  rollick some, care-free boyhood to  ,'maiityrdom, from a position insignificant in life alfairs to one of  compelling power.  "Percy Stevens is not dead. -He  can never die. His sunny smile, is  firmly lixed in our ^memories, his*  joyous laughter rings in our ears,  and his spirit, released on its mission of;duty, calls with that of one  hundred and seventy morc of his  comrades, in an l undying voice 'to  one hundred million Americans, to  .awaken, .to keener, realization of  'the ^rightfulness which would  grip"the freedom of the world.in a  mailed hand.    t  "The" miotheri who bore'him does  not sorrow in bitterness. ' The, sisters who loved him do. not mourn  with- regrets; .ytheir hearts are  Heavy with his, absence" but their  souls are; comforted" witHV'the  knowledge .- that .sunny, - lovable  "Pike'? has only stepped froni^ their  side,5,a''boyt".fo become "a forceful  figure "in shaping,- the'.destinies of  the-'wbrld."

'The Parson of Panamint"  The first of the Paramount picture plays wiLI be shown at the Enderby Opera House ncxl Saturday  night. These arc the best pictures  obtainable on this circuit. They are  the pictures seen in all the larger  theatres in the cities, and are said  to bc more finished than those of  the Fox service. Il is lhe object of  Manager Bobb in changing from  the Fox to tlie Paramount, to1 give  his patrons a chance to see new  faces and actors,of the same high  standard he has introduced in the  past few months.    The Paramount  Fiicture for Saturday night is that  ainous Pallas photo play, "Thc  Parson of Panamint," with Duslin  Farnum in the leading role. This  is a western story filled with the  elements of human interest, of history, of tragedy and comedy. ti ���������������������������xn*������������������^.*+ S ������������������������������������������������������'. 3.TTTCZSSZS  THE ENDERBY PRESS AND WALKER'S WEEKLY-  THURSDAY,  FEBRUARY  1918  THE ENDERBY PRESS  uate "nurse that might be induced to take hold of  a hospital, of this size; that in her .many years' experience as a nurse in this district she had given  entire satisfaction botli to the persons nursed  by her and the physicians under whom she has  nursed. There was nothing in the hospital Act,  he said, which would indicate tliat the records  kept by Mrs. McPherson in compliance with0the  regulations of the Act would not bc quite as acceptable to thc Government as those kept by a  graduate nurse. He knew of oilier small hospitals in the province in charge of experienced, but  not graduate, nurses which are getting the  Government grant.  The Press hopes to be pardoned for again discussing this hospital question. But wc believe  thc whole trouble has very largely been one of  viewpoint. Thc personal desires of a few earnest workers have been allowed lo dominate thc  question of public good with the result that the  larger issues of policy and general welfare have  bcen made'subservient to such questions as the  color of her hair, thc brand of tea shc drinks, the  church she attends and what she does wilh her  "Irs" and "r's"..      o  It seems lo us it is time thc city council cither  turned the hospital over to some competent person to run in thc interest of the public or disposed of it in some other way  AUTOCRACY'S BOOB MEDALS  AND WALKER'S WEEKLY  If.

Gad.sby, in the Toronto  Saturday Night, =>'is .the bunch of titles, hereditary and otherwise, which England is crowding  on tliis bcknjghted country.-' The ordinary Canadian fails to see how it can help Democracy in  this part of the world to set-up a lot of social banners for rich men ahd title hunters. We view  with alarm the probable cifects of this divided  love of our public men���������������������������onc eye on Canada.and  the othcr on I he. title-givers in England.". c  Saturday Night is doing a good service in  pointing out 1he folly, of continuing this rclicaof  autocracy in democratic Canada��������������������������� particularly  in these days when autocratic Europe has its  back against the wall and is fighting'democracy  at every turn of the road. "Hitherto we have regarded knighthood in Canada "' as." an., amiable  weakness. . Now we are inclined to regard it as a  joke that has been carried years too far..

'ation. Miss Gibbs.replied that she did not have  the records with her.  Thc whole trouble in connection with this  hospilal controversy seems to be in the inability  of some people to recognize the limit of their  personal rights, in. dealing with public matters.  Personal likes and dislikes arc allowed to predominate, and the interests of the com munily  are sacrificed on the altar of personal bickering.  Dr. Keith, chairman of the -hospital board,  speaking on the'question of the qualifications, of  Mrs. McPherson, told thc meeting that from his  the honor of North York.' They all took it, as  you will observe, for somebody else, a supreme  act of unselfishness.  "When wc conic to thc special reasons for  making Canadian Knighls we strike a vein of  pure comedy. Looking over the list I find that  one gentleman got it for providing the present  King of England with a white horse.

Pemocrfttic or Autocrine?  Geo. p. Wells concludes a  lengthy, article in the IJondpn  Times-with these words:  "That great, clear-minded  leader among the allies, that  Anglo-Saxon who more than any  other man speaks for the whole  "English-speaking and western-  thinking community, President  Wilson, has said definitely that  this is his meaning. America,  with him as her . spokesman' is  under no delusion; she is fighting  consciously for a German revolution as her essential war aim. We  in Europe4 do not seem to be so  lucid. I think myself we have  been, and are "still, fatally and  disastrously not lucid. It is high  time, x and over, that we /cleared  our minds and got down to the  essentials of the war. * We have  muddled in blood and secondary  issues long enough. We in Britain are not clear-minded because  we are double-minded. We are,  we declare, fighting for a complete change in international  methods and we are bound to stick  to the consequences of that. We  have placed ourselves on the side  of democratic revolution against,  autocratic^ monarchy, and we  cannot afford to go on shilly-  shallying^with that choice. We  cannot'in these days of black and  white play the part of lukewarm  friends of freedom. I will not remind the reader here of the horrible vacillations and inebnsis-  tericiesof policy, in Greece' cthat  have* prolonged the .war and cost  us lives and" wealth beyond measure; but President Wilson/himself has-remincledus of, .the' "follies ahd disingenuoushess of" our  early^-treatrhentof - the Russian  "revolution. What I want to point  out: here'is "the": supremeyimportance bf a jcleariead in; this matter how in order that we should  state our war aims effectively."  A||pwt Np Mi*wi4ertt������������������wting  . These words of,"President Wilson, in his last address to. Congress, are causing European rulers to find their crowns to rest  heavily upon the head: *  1 "All the parties to "this war  mus>join in "the settlement'of  every issue anyvyhere involved in  it; because what we are seeking  is a peace that we can all "unite  to guarantee and maintain, and  every-item of it-must be submit?  ted to the common, judgment,  whether it be right and fair, an  act of justice, rather than a bargain between sovereigns.  ' 'The4Jntted-States=has=no-de-  sire .to interfere in European  affairs or to act as arbiter in European territorial. disputes. She  would disdain to take advantage  of any internal weakness or disorder to impose her own will upon another people. She is quite  ready to he shown that the settlements she has suggested are  not the best or the most enduring.  They are only her own sketch of  principles and of. the way in  which they should be applied.  "But she entered this war because she was made a partner,  whether she would or no, in the  sufferings and indignities inflicted by the military masters of  Germany against the peace and  security of mankind; and the  conditions of peace will touch her  as nearly as they will touch any  other nation to which is entrusted  a leading part in the maintenance of civilization. She can  not see her way to peace until  the causes of this war are removed, the renewal rendered as  nearly as may be, impossible."  Reaping the benefit of the  elimination of Germany from  commercial competition, Japan  has enjoyed great prosperity  during the last two years. She  has now entered the piano trade,  and is exporting an upright at  the price of $135. Five hundred  pianos have already been shipped  to Australia.  One of the most important  steps taken by the food controller  by way of food conservation was  the standardization of flour manufacture. In a word, taking the  1917 wheat crop as a basis for  calculation, the new regulation  saves 2u, 000,000 bushels of wheat  in sufficient to feed 3 or 4 million  people on bread for a year. The  new regulation is satisfactory in  that all parties will bebenefitted.  The farmers are securing a fixed  high price for their wheat. The  millers will produce more flour  from the wheat at their disposal,  because 265 pounds of wheat will  make a barrel of flour, as compared with 300 pounds under the  old standard of flour. The saving  of 35 pounds of wheat in making  one barrel of flour will not noticeably affect the quality, or;taste  of the flour. As the profit to the  miller on flour is fixed at a moderate price, namely, 25 cents,  the consumer will be protected  from excessive prices. Finally,  the regulation will permit the export of 20.000,000 bushels of  wheat, or' 490,000 barrels of  flour to the Qld Country. -  Advice to Girls  Brothers^ when. treated with  consideration and their confidence  and affection won, make tbe  best friends a girl-can have.

" ' - .  Perhaps the' latter Jcwd of" sister is the xmost common. When  she makes .a request- for novels  or magazines, brother must get  them without a word of/ protest.  At balls and garden, parties he-  must, if somebody;else's brother  is not available, neglect any other  engagement Jhe may have made,  and be their chaperone.,, ������������������������������������������������������  Now and then brother. objects  to such treatment���������������������������especially as  his sister "seldom '.deigns him, a  word of/ thanks���������������������������and in consequence they drift further, apart.  This type is the unreasonable sister. The more her brother bows  to her will the less she thinks of  doing for him in return.  The other type of sister disre-  gards=-her���������������������������brothers-=al together^  She is independent of them to an  extent almost inconceivable. }}er  thoughts, her ambitions���������������������������her life  is centred entirely in herself..  There are several other kinds  of unsatisfactory sisters. The  tittle-tattling sister, who carries  her brother's confidences to other  brothers and sisters; the nagging  sister, who considers it* her* duty  to reprove her brother oh every  occasion; the unwise sister who  is devoted to one brother, but  cold to others���������������������������these are the  chief of them.  What, then, should a girl do to  make her brother happy? What  qualities- should she possess?  They are unselfishness, control  of temper, and tact. Without unselfishness, she will never succeed in her attempt.  A Short Ton  . An Irishman worked for a man  named Morrison who kept a small  coal yard in a New England city.  Pat was continually making mis-  takes,- until finally, after a week  of unusual stupidity oh the part  of the son of Erin, when Saturday night came the boss paid him  off, remarking that he would not  need his services any longer.  "An' how's that?" queried Pat.  "Well, the truth is, you're so  stupid; it's impossible to teach  you anything.''  Pat thought a moment. ' 'Sure,  there's one thing Oi've l'arned  since Oi've been wid yeez, Mister Morrison," he replied.  "And what is that?" asked the  proprietor.  "That 1,700 make a,toh."

THURSDAY,  FEBRUARY 21,   1918  A Pica For Clean Sport  To the Sporting Public: It was  with the greatest delight I read  of the Enderby victory over Armstrong's budding hockoyists who  have been budding for several  years and have practically the  same team that played last winter when Enderby had a heavier  team than this winter's.  - Now then, what will the sporting public do? I know that they  will congratulate the boys and  sing Enderby's praises because  words are cheap. But will you  help them financially? Possibly  you think they'don't need it, or  you can't afford it. Narrow it'  down to this: "I am too narrow-  minded to admit, even to myself,  that athletics will make the hoys  - cleaner; stronger, healthier and  better men, and so I'll do all I  can to keep the boys from getting what they need."  The former Enderby Seniors  have plenty of baseball paraphernalia, most of which they could  give the boys and some, or even  all^of which they could lend the  . boys if only they practised what  they preach, viz., be generous  and keep sport alive. :  Again, it* the men find it difficult sometimes to control their,  tempers during a game, if they  find the temptation to put over  something crooked on the other  fellow, pretty strong for them,  Avhat is to be expected from the  boys? There is a fine' opportunity  for the older people to help the  boys in a substantial way.  The rules and regulations of the  B. C. School Law make it compulsory for the teachers to inculcate  and enforce cleanliness" of mind  and body in the boys and girls.  If this training only holds good  for a quarter of a. day  for  five  days a week, will it prevail over  the evil forces and tendencies  that assail the children everywhere?  More and mojje now are health  and honesty arid f afr play essential in every occupation.  I shall deem it a special favor  on the part of the.Enderby Press  if this letter, or better, appeal, is  published through fhe columns of  that paper.

Moore-Peacock Nuptials'  Miss Winnifred Ethel Moore,  only daughter of Mr. and Mrs.  Harry Moore, of 10 St. Francis-  road. Folkstone, was married to  Lance-Corporal William George  Peacock, of Grindrod, British  Columbia, on leave from the  front, where he has served for 2h  years, at Grace Hill Weslayan  church, last Saturday morning,  (Jan. 5th.) A goodly number of  friends attended. The proceedings  opened with the hymn, "O Perfect Love."  In the course of the ceremony  the officiating minister, Rpv. J.-"  E. Harlow, delivered a brief address of congratulation. The congregation realized, he said, with  respectful sympathy and regard,  that Mr. Peacock was celebrating  the happiest occasion in his life  away from ' his parents and  friends.
