Funk, who recently returned from thc front bearing  many scars of battle, received  in the Canadian push at Vimy  Ridge, not far from the scene  of the present '.bitter fighting,  between that historical point  and Arras. He says the ground  in that vicinity is level, with  shallow draws and .valleys leading to what arc known there as  ridges or hills. In reality these  heights and ridges are lowTrol-  ling ground, seldom more than  100 or 200.feet elevation. But  from the top of one of these  rises one can see as far as the '  eye can reach. It is  ideal for the movement of  troops, if open warfare is resorted to.  Pte.

Harris visited the interior lo tell our farmers how to" raise pigs profitably. Mr. Harris was sent on this  laudable mission by the- provincial department oi' Agriculture.  The purpose was the best, but  somehow our farmers, rightly  or wrongly, have concluded  lhat they have had enough  "talk" and want to see some  "plan" toward which all can  ���������������������������work. And Mr. Harris was listened to in his Armstrong address by a baker's dozen, and  all of them were not farmers.  However, Mr. Harris gave some  very valuable bints which'any  pig raiser might profit by adop-  thcm  milk  bar lev.  regularly  to feed. Skim  was woiib its weight in  shorts, etc. It was" a fine  .appetizer, and was most valuable when" fed moderately, sour  .or sweet, preferably the latter.  Two parts ground oats, two ot  shorts, one of oiL cake meal,  to which could well be added  ground barley, was a very valuable feed.  Six pounds of skim milk was  equal to onc pound of grain; 5  pounds of grain lo one pound  of pork. Salt and correctives,  such as sods, should be used in  winter.  conducted. . .-.There is no road  to victory except by facing facts  as they exist.'  "Such facts are what the people need and deserve,-���������������������������without  wilful tinge of either rose or indigo.

Mr. Harris gave his reasons  for believing that the producer  would get good prices for his  pork, and that tlie packers had  been pul under- control.  One way to greatly increase  production was to keep the pig  for six weeks or two months  longer when it would wciah 40  per cent. morc. at least 25 percent., than if killed when it only  weighed 110 to 125 lbs.  "^-^"Pla^frrfrerHOT  feed possible," continued Mr.  Harris, who said he had found  alfalfa and clover almost sullicienl in themselves for raising  the pig.  His practice is lo divide his  clover plot in two. with pigs  enough on one lo keep il down,  transferring lhe pigs lo lhe  olher- half when il has grown.  in self-feeders he always kepi  dry fvvd before them.

There are many miles of road  in this district which must be*  maintained by some means,  more or less inexpensively. On  the Dominion Experimental  Farms, the split-log drag is one  of the, most useful instruments  for this purpose. It is now in  use in many localities and an  increasing cinileage of the rural  highways of this country is being kept in repair economically  by the use of this simple implement.  A dry, sound red cedar log is  the best material for a drag, the  hard woods being usually too  heavy for this purpose. The log  should be seven or eight feet in  length andfrom ten to twelve  inches in diameter and carefully sawn down Uic middle. The  heaviest and best slab should be  selected for the centre, both flat  sides to the front and set on  edges thirty inches apart, giving  the back half a set back of six  tion. After this again, when the  surface approaches a crumbly  texture, the drag may be used  very successfully.  I believe in my'town; it may  hot be the best town in the  world, but it is not the worst;  and anyhow, it's my town, and  I'm going to stand by it.  I believe in thc people in my  town and the communitv round  Greater Production Plans  Ontario will plant 1,000,000  acres more in cereals and cultivated crops this spring; Quebec  600,000 and the Maritime Provinces 400,000 acres extra. The  farmers in Eastern Canada are  called upon to plant 5 acres per  WHAT   PA   SAYS  It has often been said that  is cheap; but it is altogether a  question of who does the talking. As a matter of fact, what  a man is means more than what  he says, for it is a man's character which determines the value of his sneech. Tliis imnlies  that the value of men's words  vary.  Jn this respect men are divided into three classes: Men of  the first class have their words  taken at par. They mean precisely what they say. Of this  type of man it has been said:  !"His word is as good as his  bond."   Men of the second class  it;   there may hc  some scrubs'farm extra.   400,000 framers in  among them, but we're going to Eastern Canada can save the sit  convert them into sell-respecting citizens; and anyhow, most  of them are good fellows, and  are ready to stand by me if 1  stand by them.  I_-_believe in the future of my  town and community; I know it  depends upon me and the rest  of us; but I know we can get together for a big future, and we  might as well start in at once.

Two cross-pieces arc  in two-inch auger holes bored  through the slabs and on the.  right hand side a piece of scantling is inserted between thc  ends of the slabs. This is of  great value in strengthening  and stiffening lhc end of the  front slab.  In working a clay or gumbo  road it is advisable, to put iron  oncthc lower edge of both flat  sides. Handles "may be attached  to a piece of. iron similar to a  piece of wagon tire, thc iron to  be hinged lo Jthc back of. each  end of the front slab. By pressing the handles the drag could  be raised^ "thus depositing a load  of dirt which is desired to fill a  hollow or increase the crown at  some particular spot; *"'.'' y".'.  A plalform o'f inch boards  held together by three cleats  should be placed on the stakes  between the slabs."

It does not take men  very long to from a proper estimate of our real value. Everybody soon knows whether . our  words are to be placed at par,  at a premium or at a discount.  Therefore, let's quit tryng to  fool onc another. It doesn't, pay.  It is a waste of timcand enfergy.

He told the writer, on his recent, visit to  the Okanagan that Armstrong celery has a reputation throughout the East that assures a continuous demand at the highest prices. He said,  however, that it was thc opinion of thc buyers,  that thc quality of the celery shipped last season  wtis not as good as that upon which this reputation was made, and he regretted that there should  be this feeling on the part of the buyers.  Plow much reason there is for this compiaint  onlv our growers and shippers are in a position  to say, but there is this about it they cannot get  away from: if there is any cause for the feeling  that cause should be looked into and if possible  remedied. Even second quality Armstrong celery is better than the, first quality on the market  from other celery-growing localities. Yet it will  not do to let Armstrong first quality go down.  The higher the quality is kept the surer will be  thc permanent market and the better the price.  Th world cannot excel Armstrong's first quality  product, for which there will always be an unlimited market. But buyers quickly detect any  falling off in quality and even the slightest  cause for complaint might weaken the hold of  thc Armstrong, celery growers on the market.  WHY IS IT?  To hear some folk talk one might think that  B. C. had unlimited food for which she can get  no market, but if this is so what is the answer to  the following questions from a Vancouver paper:  l.-Why does B. C. have to cat Alberta beef for  six months of the year?  2. Why is 90 per cent, of B. C.'s ham and bacon  imported from Alberta, Toronto and Seattle?  3. Why is 90 per cent of B. C.'s lamb and mutton imported from  United Stales'?  " 4. Why is most of B. C.'s supply of turkeys,  geese, ducks and chickens imported from Ontario and United States middle west?  5. Why does B. C. send $3,000 per day to Alberta for butter and eggs?  With thc added problem of transportation, one  which is very difficult in this province, why  should this present condition exist?  These questions refer to home consumption.  * and we must solve that and also the problem of  '  helping to feed part of Europe.  Lad^: Drummond cabled the National Council  of Women recently: "Every ounce of energy  thrown into the work of stimulating and achiev-  ving food conservation, particularly at this time,  is of. vital service to thc Allied cause. There is  ���������������������������need for Canada to give all she can of cereals,  meat, bacon, butter and cheese."  AL^ ARE BRAVJS tyJSN  One cannot listen to a soldier talk who has returned from the front without feeling disappointed. Not in the man: not in what that man  nor the other heroes of whom he is a type have  done and are doing. The disappointment comes  in hearing from him so little of the great war and  the part he played in it while serving at the front.  But one's first disappointment is soon replaced  by admiration for the brave fellows. Admiration  because they have done so much and say so little  about it.  Wc have to look elsewhere for any knowledge of what our men are doing. And so >we take  this little excerpt from what Gipsy Smith recently said in an address in New York. Gipsv  Smith the evangelist was born in a tent. He went  through four gas attacks in France in his three  ^yearsLsei^lcc-in^VNLG.A .-work,-a nd-thc=King-of  England decorated him for the work he had done  in keeping up the spirits of the men.  "They've got my  heart,"  said  the evangelist,  "those boys who arc fighting without thought of  being  heroes.     I'd  rather  untie  their shoelaces!  than preach the greatest sermon in the world. }'���������������������������  just want to serve them, and I didn't care whether I did it washing cups or scrubbing floors ori  handing out chocolate or preaching.-The bravest  man  1 saw oyer there?    They all were.    Every  hoy who goes inlo the trenches, every- man who  goes   over   the  enemy's   lines   in*: an" aeroplane,  every lad in thc now should have a medal."  Some remarkable contrasts betwen the administration expenses of Brilish Columbia and other  'provinces of Canada were presented to the Vancouver Board of Trade some nights ago by a  special committtce which was appointed to investigate the question of provincial and municipal taxation. Thc committee had prepared several schedules showing in detail the expenditures  of British Columbia and other provinces _ and  what was termed the "extraordinary" increase in  civil government salaries was one item on which  special stress was laid. It was also pointed but  that British Columbia's expenditure on civil government was higher than Ontario or Quebec, as  well lis Alberla' and Saskatchewan, and it was  further emphasized that0 this'province, was the  only onc in the Dominion where an income tax  was necessary.  "We, as a committee," concludes, the report,  "feel that it is necessary for the..public be more  fully acquainted with the financial affairs-of the  province than they are at present and are still of"  the opinion that the government be urged to appoint an expert, as was suggested by your committee, to investigate the whole question of provincial administration." %  "Returning to the expenditure on civil government, we find from this schedule that they are  as follows throughout the provinces of Canada:  British Columbia, $1,555,562; Alberta, $485,528;  Saskatchewan, $343,719; Ontario, $826,653;  Quebec, $649,156.  "The discrepancy between the expenditure of  British Columbia and elsewhere, as shown in the  above figures, is so startling that I have as far as  it is possible from the published accounts, analyzed the civil government expenditure, as will  be found in schedule D. This gives the expenditure in British Columbia, under the head of civil  government salaries and tlie expenditure in Alberta under the head of civil government. I have  given this statement so that there may be no  doubt as to the accuracy, from a comparative  point of view, of these two items of expenditure.  It shows that in Alberta, with a population of  roughlv 500,000, they can administer the province with an expenditure of $379,507, whereas  in British Columbia, with a population of probably 400,000 persons, it cosls $1,477,611 for thc  same expenditure.  "To take one outstanding item, namely, the  civil government salaries," the report continues,  "we find that during the years mentioned the expenditures on this item alone liaA-c been as follows: 1910, $389,701,; 1913, $857,092; 1917, $1,-  477,611; 1918, $1,453,256. Thc increase shown  by these figures are so extraordinary as to, in  themselves, warrant some explanation. The  population of British Columbia today is little  more than in 1910. and yet our provincial government's salary bill has increased over 350 per  cent....It shows that with an average expenditure throughout Canada of $6.56 per head of population, we have spent $17.34."

The profits of  the concern for 1917 reached $6,040,000, after  making provision for repairs, maintenance, improvements and war-taxes.t. Bond interest anc  dividends accounted for $1,695,000. After providing for depreciation and reserves, the company had a surplus of $1,550,000 to be carried  forward with a previous balance of $4,647,000.  In brief, the profits for the year showed, an. increase of 20 per cent, over 1916 and of no less  than 86 per cent- over 1915.  STATE CONTROL OF THE JNPJVJPPAL  If we have many more laws enacted providing  further state control of the individual, we shall  be prepared to take hold of the Germans where  the Kaiser leaves off when the troops of the Allies  march ,into Rerlin. The recently enacted law  against 'idleness, majting it compulsory for every  ahle-bodied citizen to find employment and to  keep at work, is similar to the law which has  been in force hi Germany for many years, jhe  law worked well there under peace conditions  and should be most effective in times of stress  here when the nation needs the services of every  individual.  I have often wondered what would happen if  there was a shortage of ink. Nothing would so  rapidly conduce to the end of the war.���������������������������Mr. R.  Whiteing.  8  TWANJv VOU  HIGHLY COMMENDED  All Armstrong and Enderbv citizens will remember the ever genial "A l"'Maundrell, son of  Mr. and Mrs. Maundrell. who was in business at  both of these towns before leaving for the front  some three years ago. And all will be pleased to  read what the instructor in catering of the Field  Army Corps had to sav on a recent visit to the  supply depot wherc "Al," now corporal, was in  charge. In his general remarks the instructor  said:  "Tlie corporal cook i.s very capable, and the  dinner which I saw served on'the occasion of my  visit reflected great credit on him, A. E. Maundrell, corporal. The C. 0. desires to make known  his appreciation of the good work performed  and thc interest taken by all  those concerned."  After twenly-five months steady work in all  sorts of weather. Corporal Maundrell, Master  Cook.in tlie Army Sen-ice Corps, is now in the  hospital in England recovering from an operation to his knee lo relieve an injury caused by a  fall while carrying supplies to the men in "the  trendies. He went overseas in March. 1915, ancl  was mentioned in despatches in October last.  The "Okanagan Commoner" is tlie name of a  new paper launched at Armstrong last wee|c,  when the old Armstrong Advertiser and the Enderby Press were merged under the above name.  Tlie Commoner will be published at Armstrong  with H- M- Walker, formerly of the Enderby  Press, as editor. In its initial number the Com-  moner strikes a high point of excellence both as  regards style and material. It is a very distinct  credit to the northern end of the Okanagan which  it will endeavor to serve, and promises to be a  valuable addition to the press of the interior.  There is room for such a publication in the Arm-  strong-Enderby section, and the News wishes it a  full measure of that success which we feel certain it will be found to merit.���������������������������Vernon News.  Last week the Armstrong Advertiser and Enderby Press ceased to exist as separate entities  and have amalgamated their forces for the production of tlie "Okanagan Commoner" which is  thc name by which the new publication will be  known. Tlie times are ripe for retrenchment in  almost every sphere of human activity and the  amalgamation of the two papers who have  served both Armstrong and Enderby district so  faithfully for so many years is indeed a happy  one and we wish tlie new combination everv success in their new venture.���������������������������Salmon Arm Observer.

READ AND PONDER  Thoughtful Words of a Returned Veteran that Give an  A Insight Into the Soldier's  Mind  ��������������������������� While' our parlor-chair reformers are lying awake between  luxurious naps .thinking about  what we are going to do with  our returned soldiers, our soldiers arc apparently shaping up  a solution of the problem "what  arc we going to do with our civilians���������������������������our stay-at-homes." Listen to and ponder o'er what  David Loughan says in thc B. C.  Veterans' Weekly:  Out there where the harvest  of death is being reaped, and  men are within an ace and a second of eternity, money counts  for less than the earth in a sandbag.   But here at home���������������������������  Ah! the difference! Private  cars for thc profiteers���������������������������colonist  cars for their defenders. Economy preached to the absent soldier's wife and family���������������������������extravagance practised by those who  preach it. Five and. a half per  cent patriotism paraded by thc  rich���������������������������patriotism that leads to  lhe grave embraced by the humble.  No! I am no socialist. But in  view of -what is taking place in  The Mystery of Luck  A little bit of effort, a little  bit of thought, a little hit of  daring and of pluck, a little bit  of courage in the fight that's being fought���������������������������all this is often  looked upon as luck.  A little bit of vision, and of  faith a little too; a bit of.stern  resistance when you're struck;  quite a lot of purpose in the  work you have to do���������������������������all this is  the masonry of luck.  A little bit of wisdom and the  magic of a smile, some real determination when you're  struck; the grit to keep a-going  till you make another mile, are  catalogued and labeled under  luck.  The 'wish to travel pathways  that were never trod before, to  hold the lines against the foes  that buck; to, keep the spirit  beating When the flesh is weak  and sore���������������������������all this is in the parentage of luck.  To do the right when wrong  would seem to fill your purse  ���������������������������with gold; to cling to truth nor  fear the devil's muck; to play  your part unselfishly, be ever  brave and bold���������������������������herein you find  tlie mystery of luck.���������������������������Detroit  Free Press.  Relatives and Civil Service  Jas. Weir .member of the Alberta legislature, elected on the  ! Non-partizan ticket, says that in  | looking over the civil service list  he found, two ministers of. the  | cabinet had thirty-two relatives  in the public service.  , The returned soldiers were at the bottom of the list, having the poorest jobs with the least pay given  to   public   servants.     Tlie   civil  service list cost about $750,000  a  year;   this  for  a  population  about as great as Toronto.

At Winnipeg some switching France   this   moment,   and   of  what I sec and know to be going  on from coast to coast of insincerity in high piaccs, of unconcerned disregard as to thc true  state of affairs, and the burden-  bearing of this war's suffering,  took place, ancl now we arc on  our wav again with thc private  car "Comarty" attached to the  rear of the train.

E. Britton Gives an Interesting Talk in the Enderby  School on the Subject  A very interesting lecture on  "The Care and Feeding of Live  Stock" was given by Mr. J. E.  Britton in the Assembly Hall of  Fortune School, Wednesday  evening, April 10th. In a thoroughly scientific, yet simple,  way the lecturer dealt with his  theme, tracing historically the  development of agriculture  from primitive times, when  man depended upon the native  grasses in favored localities for  the feeding of his flocks, to the  present highly intensive methods by which >the world's supply of foods is furnished. Care  of flocks and herds on which  man depended so largely for  food stimulated agricultural activity and gave a decided impetus lo the production of cereals. It was pointed out that the  world owes much to Britain  where, about two centuries ago,  the first scientific methods were  adopted in the improvement of  breeds of slock and grain.  A careful distinction was  drawn between feeding for production and feeding for maintenance, it being pointed out  that in the ease, of-thc dairy  cow it was a great mistake to  withhold the food above what  was needed for maintenance if  a large amount of butlerfat was  required. Thc lecturer clearly  defined thc piopcrly balanced  ration for thc horse, dairy cow,  hog and sheep.  Perhaps thc most interesting  feature 'of the lecture was the  throwing on thc canvas of some  fifty very excellent pictures of  the leading types of stock. Thc  leading ".judging points," especially of the dairy cow, were  pointed out. Thc lecture was  much appreciated. It was regrettable that a larger representation of the community could  not have becn present. Rev.  Mr. Dow acted as chairman.  Wool Growers Take Stock  A meeting of the sheepmen  in the vicinity of Enderby was  held last -Friady afternoon, Apr.  12th, at the farmhouse of Mr.  Butchart for thc purpose of  hearing Mr. Geo. C. Ha>% representing thc Dominion' "Wool  Growers' Association, of Toronto, on lhc question of organization. Thc meeting, was  attended by some 15 or 20  farmers, most of whom-.signed  up-for a share of stock in thc  parent organization. There was  iio local formed but all those  becoming members will work  through the branch association  organized at Kamloops.  A. similar meeting was held  "at Armstrong, Saturday afternoon, wherc a number of our  farmers took shares and agreed  to place their wool on the market through the "Kamloops organization.  The object of the wool growers is to make thc organization  dominion-wide so as to control  the wool output, and the hiar-  kqts. -The organization is enr  tirely in the interest of the^ farmers ami all who are raising  sheep, even on a small scale,  are taking advantage of the on-  portunity=to=,geUtogether.^Mr_..  F. J. Murray was appointed  receiver and shipper for Armstrong district. Any person not  at the meeting can get all information from him.

C  Enderby Hospital Board  ���������������������������o<  >o  A meeting of the Enderby  Hospital Board was called for  Friday evening last in the City  Hall for the purpose of electing  a new board to take up the  work. The meeting was fairly  representative. Tlie following  were chosen on the board: Mrs.  Wm. Woods, Mrs. A. A. Faulkner, Mrs. H. M. Walker, Mr.  Chas. Oppertshauser. ��������������������������� These,  with two members already  named by the City Council-  Mr. Nichol and Mr. Hawkins-  will constitute the board until  such time as the Provincial  government names a member  to represent it on the Board.  It was agreed at this meeting  that a meeting of the new  board would be held last Monday evening, when Mr. Davies,  secretary of the old board, promised to have a financial statement ready for auditing;also to  hand over to the new board a  lease and agreement prepared  by thc city which would give  one head lo lhc hospital and  bring it down to a business  basis. Monday evening the  newly elected members of thc  board met at the City Hull, but  Secretary Davics failed to put  in an appearance���������������������������and little progress could bc made. Mr. Oppertshauser was chosen tq get  thc necessary papers from thc  old board to allow thc perfecting of the new organization,  and another meeting is to bc  held .Thursday evening in the  City Hall, at 8 o'clock, for that  purpose.
