That sounds good but not too  good to-be true. Facts warrant  the assertion. Thc great question that faces every woman today is: "How many Dependables . are there and how do I  rank?" The answer to that  question shows just how near  each one is to the firing line.  Women^are, today, an integral  part of the army and navy" and  are just back of the firing line  in France. The reason " is because they ^ arc dependables.  Some one will say: Oh! but 1  do not count! I can't do anything but knit and sew. It takes  brains to be a Dependable. You  are right about the brains but  a.������������������> wrong as can bc about your  not counting. The war would  long since have been won by  Germany-had not there been,  right here in Canada, an immense army of Dependables all  the way from Labrador to Alaska and every one of Ihem knitting and serving in the way. only  known to themselves. That  endless stream of Red Cross  supplies lhat started as  soon as war was declared and  has never slackened is testimony  enough to the existence of Dependables in Canada.-, Thc comforts for soldiers bear witness  fact lhal there is a dc-.  blc generosity in Canada  fi | lhat links it right up to the  (j trenches in spite oi" the intervening Atlantic.  Being a Dependable consists  in the determination to bc a Dependable.

It was her dependability which caused her to  accomplish a task that will forever bc )Xie high water mark of  a Scottish woman's devotion to  duty and humanity, ll was "bul  dependability    which P enabled  a   .���������������������������   a ~e    ot i  iii'ici"  lo  ^eixd 8.000  Serbian  sob  Armstrong.   6AA  y |dicrs to Ensi.uui by a circuitous  route through Finland because  of possible ambush by the revolting  Russians.

The trouble may  have been because of a poor demand for the product, or the.  quality may have been below  standard.  According to Experimental  -Farm-notes,; the dairy produce  from the Experimental Farm,  Agassiz, B. C, has been sold in  a number of different ways, one  of the most satisfactory of  which is in the form of cream  cheese. The cream cheese appears to be the most popular of  soft cheeses. It is easily made  oh thc farm and requires very  little   special   apparatus.

During  cool weather wc have becn able  to keep this cheese for a week I  or ten days without any appro  but tlie demand appears to be  increasing. We have during  the past twelve months sold 5,-  420 of these cheeses in the city  of Vancouver. The wholesale  price obtained is 15c each; this  amounts to $813.00 for tlie product during the-past year. Each  cheese weighs sixVounces and  approximately ten dozen are  now being manufactured each  week from 70 pounds of 12 per  cent, cream. This brings a return of ninety cents per pound  butterfat for the cream, with  the whey retained for feeding  purposes.  The shape of tlie cheese is  cylindrical from one to onc and  a half inches deep and there  inches in diameter. "When  moulding, thc cheese is pressed  hi to a cheesecloth cover and  when ready for shipment is incased in a neat cardboard carton. It is a cheap cheese and a  convenient size for table use.

This frieiKi, if anything, oversteps the mark m  speaking of our efforts. But hc does not say too  much in speaking of, our faith. We believe we  have in the Armstrong-Enderby district onc of  the fairest localities in thc great dominion of  Canada. Its future is assured; its present a positive quantity. Perhaps it is not yet what it  should be; perhaps as a people wc have not yet  recognized its full proportions. Indeed, there  are those who share with us the feeling that, as a  district, its wonderful potentialities have only  been scratched. We have, as it were, been only  leeches on the land. Wc have not been masters  of it. We have lived off thc land, and been content to so live because the living has becn easy.  We have not, however, learned to make the most  of tlie land and the land's possibilities.* The  pennies wc have made could as well have becn  dollars. They have not brought us into the  proud position of being possessors of a Promised  Land���������������������������a land flowing with milk and honey.  Have we not complained of our difficulties instead of surmounting them? Have we not sought  Government patcrnalization instead of making  ourselves strong through thc exercise of effort  on our own part to bring about the improvement so much desired? Have we not contented  ourselvfcs with wishing i'or things instead of  striking  out  by  combined  effort  and  bringing  them to us?  These are days when the truest-conservation  can come only by combining���������������������������by amalgamating  ���������������������������by joining hands. We must cut the grouch,  taboo thc knocker, suppress the tendency within  ourselves to look upon our lot, whatever be our  occupation, through murky glasses.

These regulations just put  through make it an offense punishable by a fine  of. not more than $5,000 or to imprisonment for  not morc than five year or to both fine and imprisonment, and the suppression, of the publication and seizure of presses and plant if in the  judgement of "the Secretary of State a publisher  is guilty of��������������������������� '  "To.print, publish or publicly express any adverse or unfavorable statement, report or opinion  concerning the cause of the war or the, motives or  purposes for which Canada or tlie United Kingdom of Great Britain and Ireland or any of the  allied nations entered upon or prosecutes thc  same, which may tend to arouse hostile feeling,  create unrest or influence public opinion;  "To print or give public expression or'circulation to any false statement or report respecting  tbe work or activities of any department, branch  or officer of the public service or the service or  activities of'" Canada's Military or Naval Forces,  which may tend to inflame public opinion and  thereby hamper tlie Government of Canada or  prejudicially affect its Military or Naval Forces  in the prosecution of thc war."  ��������������������������� These regulations, seemingly so severe on their  face, arc on the hues of tlie regulations regulating  publicity in the United States and the United  Kingdom. Severe, yet necessary, if such fire  brands as have been permitted in Quebec and  here and there outside of Quebec, are to be controlled. "The day for consideration and. discussion has passed," reads the law, "and the day for  united action in execution of an unchangeable decision has come, and it is therefore necessary, to  remove every obstacle and hindcrance to such,  united action."

If  this proves to be thc case, what will become of  thc question of thc Yellow man and thc saffron  peril? Already men arc beginning to inquire if  this yellow peril: docs really exist. And the  more' they inquire into it the less perilous the  peril appears. Yet all the while the Yellow boys  continue to conic into every branch of labor in  B. C and they show no "intention of making  their stay with us at all brief. On the contrary,  there is every indication that thc Yellow man is  here to stay/ And the only thing to do is to face  the fact ancl meet thc condition. In the last number of the Toronto Saturday Night there appears  tliis brief comment on the question of Japanese  privileges in Canada, and the whys and where-  fors: "In the early stages of the war the Japanese  navy was almost as much a safeguard to British  Columbia as thc British navy to our Atlantic sea-  -boar d >=���������������������������I ts���������������������������pro tection���������������������������o f Vpa eifiewshippi n g_Jias_  been invaluable to us ever since. It would be the  basest ingratitude were such frivolous remarks  as those of Mr. Warburton allowed to go unchallenged by Canadians."  It is said that this year will see 1000 acres of  land in the vicinity * of Vernon cultivated by  Chinese. We arc not in a position lo say how  many acres in the vicinity of Armstrong are  likewise cultivated^ And .the same (condition  prevails throughout British Columbia. It is safe  to wager, therefore, that thc Yellow man is here  to stay. And. if the experience of California is  any criterion of what we shall witness here as  the years roll on, wc may confidently expect to  sec whole districts given over to Chinese and  Japanese.  There will, of course, be much complaint by  while workingmen, just as.'there has been in  other districts as the yellow population increased  and threatened, the welfare of tlie whiteman's  home. Rut an ounce of prevention in a case of  tJhis kind is worth a pound of cure. And the only  preventative that will keep the whiteman on top  lies in co-operation. The white man must meet  the competition of. tlie yellow man, and work  with him. ,-     ���������������������������-������������������������������������������������������.. ������������������������������������������������������v *���������������������������  Here is the wav the Santa Barbara Press sizes  up thc situation in Europe: "Thc kaiser cannot  win. As a general proposition, we will nail that  statement to the masthead, and keep it there unitl  thc end. If tlie worst should come; if the kaiser  should nearly win, if he should succeed in driving  the English back to their channel and across it, if  hc should compel tlie French to evacuate their  present capital and carry- their seat of government back toward the Bay of Biscay; if thc Germans should devastate one-half of France, and  threaten the British Isles with similar devastation���������������������������what then?  "The answer is in America.    What would the  Americans do?   They would be arming and drilling, planting and reaping, and burning the tares  of" treason as they garner thc wheat of loyalty.

"What will America be doing? There is but  one reply. America will prove equal to the various tasks, the first of which may be to clean its  own house, to drive out the rats and the serpents  that, seek to eat away our courage, and to beguile  us .with the poison apples of a Prussian peace.  , "America will be on guard against domestic  and alien enemies, and against the foreign foe.

Residents of  'Similkameen and Kcrcmcos say  that  they  will   oppose   thc  entrance of American sheep unless (  thc owners become actual land  owners and bona fide ranchers  of British Columbia;    To graze  thc sheep, on thc mountain feed  ing grounds of thc district andj  use the area merely as a sum- *  mer pasture ground would not!  bc satisfactory, say the ranchers  of the Similkameen. '  At least one large sheep  ranching company, however, j  proposes to establish a realj  sheep ranch in the Valley, and  is seeking leaseholds ' and options on various ranches south  of Jveremeos. One of these is  the property of Mr. William J.  Manery. a Simillcamecn pioneer  who owns a valley Janq ranch  comprising between 600 and  800 acres. It is said that the  sheep men desire to obtain this  land for a winter home for the  bands and would erect large  sheds, as well as put up a con-  siderablc���������������������������quanti.ty_of._hay. .This  CONSERVATION OF WHAT?  Say, friend, if your's is a man's job, are you  filling it1'like a man? If it is a kid's job. quit'it  and let some kid fill it. Don't waste your time.  These are conservation days. We talk a great.  deal about conservation. We have made conservation our war slogan. But do we really conserve in practice? What are we conserving? Are,  we conserving man power; are we conserving  brain power; arc we conserving effort? Arc we,  in fact, doing much morc than talk conservation?  Thc answer is up to each of us.  Plans of the national registration of the man  and woman power of Canada have been approved by the cabinet and official announcement  has been made at Ottawa. Every male and female  between the ages of 16 and 60 will be compelled  to register on a day in June which has not yet  been fixed. There are drastic.regulations which  will make it necessary for everyone to comply  with thc order. It is understood, for instance,  tliat a person without a registration card will be  unable to travel on a railway train and wiJJ be  unable to draw his pay envelope if working for  a firm.   He or she will lose the right to vote.  It is planned to complete the registration in one  day and the election machinery to a certain extent will bc used. The country is divided into  some seventeen districts with a registrar in  charge of each district.  particular company intends to  establish itself in tlie Similkameen during the coming spring  with at least 14,000 or 15,000  sheep. ������������������  "Rev. ������������������Mr." Jones  Milk Bottles  40c  35.00  12.00  10.00  , 60c  dozen  Quarts,   at    $2.25   doz  Pints, at       1.75 doz  Bottle Caps, at 10     lb  Lawn Mowers  at last year's prices    '  ;-..__-..  1-J-in   Low   wheel      $7.50;  10-in -   "    "     8.00  11-in, High Wheel   ........ .    8.50  l(>-in      "        "     :.    0.00  1-20 Ball Bearing  ..:.......   11.50  De Laval Cream Separators  No.  10, 350-lb Capacity $ 85.00  No. 12, 500-lb     "    "      95.00  No. 15, 750-lb   .'������������������'    "......   112.50  Get the test -- at the Armstrong  Creamery before buying a separator���������������������������You will find thePe Laval  has the lead.

SEED WHEAT PLENTIFUL        Si  "The prompt action of the Government*in pushing seed wheat into the Okanagan when! tlie fear  was first expressed that the farmers would not  be able to get it in time"'for*.planting, very quickly  supplied the market and dispelled the fear. Our  seed supply houses noSv are stocked up with seed  wheat, and the demand for it is diminishing as  the time for planting draws near. Perhaps this  lull in the demand is only temporary, and in a  week or two it may be increased. It is desirable  that the seed-wheat demand should increase in  tliis district, "When it does the seed supply  houses will have an abundance to enable them to  supply all requirements.   -"'.'..

We   have  been   carrying   on  experiments  for  a  number  ol  years to determine thc cost in  grain of 100 lb. of pork.    This  work this year includes almost  1,000  head   of   hogs,   most   oi*  which   have   bcen   grown   on  grain in  conjunction with pasture.    When   so  fed  wc  have  found that .415 lb. of grain produced 100 lb. of pork.   ThcTbcst  pastures hove been alfalfa and  rape.   While it may not bc possible  to  establish  alfalfa  areas  for next year rape will bc found  entirely satisfactory, particularly for the latter part of lhc season.    We  have  found  that  an  acre of rape will carry from 1',-  hogs in  cost OL  600 to 1,900 lb. of live ,������������������,e  a season.    Wc have found  lure to reduce lhc grain  100  lb.  of  pork  by 154 lb.  ofj  grain.     If we accept the state-j  ment Lhat an acre of good pas-|  lure will carry 1,(500 lb. of porkj  during the season, and say the!  Victor Hugo declared that  there is nothing in history more  fascinating and wonderful than  the realization of "an idea  whose time has come." Men at  the crossways of the world's  events and speaking their views  and reactions to history now in  the making.  Leon Trotsky, in wide, bold  strokes, sketches a world in  which the contradictions between feudal autrocacy and  modern industry are so vast  that existing governments cannot function and the nations at  war represent natural law  striving after a new form of  Government and of economic  'socictv.  Charles M. Schwab, addressing a public school alumni association, asserts that "we are  at the threshold of a new era,"  and "the man who labors with  his hands, who does not possess  property, is the onc who is going lo dominate the affairs of  this world."  Lord Northcliffe, ordinarily a  decisive analyst who speaks  with an assurance of finalities,  while in Chicago observed with  hesitanev and the manner of  one totfflcd that "a mysterious  Something is sweeping the  world" and actuating men to inexplicable deeds.  Is  the  world  witnessing  the  birth  of "an  idea  whose  time  is come?"    When men  as far  apart hitherto as Leon Trotsky  and Charles M. Schwab arrive  at    an    explicit    understanding  that   a   reorganization   of   the  fundamentals of human society  is on thc way, then  thc world  must be near lo acceptance of  jsomcthingv strikingly   new.

But hi the manufacturing centres, where thousands  of  men   and  woanen   are  employed it will mean a considerable   saving   to   the   manufacturers if not to the laborers. On  thc farm and in store and office  in this district we do not need to  have a daylight saving law enacted to  bring us  to  work an  hour   earlier   in    the   summer  season.    Nor will  the daylight  saving law permit us to quit an  hour earlier at the close of'the  day.    Most of us have to work  from   daylight   till   dark���������������������������and  then   soime.   And   the  daylight  saving law is not going to help  to relieve this necessity lo any  extent.    Thc  man who has  to  have a law enacted to get him to  woik   an   hour   earlier   in   thc  summer time than in the winter time, isn't made of the kind  of   stuff   that  will  save  much  daylight any time.    There does  not seem to bc any use in saving  daylight if some use is nol to be  made of tlie daylight saved. Nor  can any good come out of it if  we save daylight at onc end of  thc   day   and   waste  it   at   the  other;    Only in certain sections  and    certain    occupations    will  there bc any gain  in  the daylight saving enactment,  but in  order  to   make  it   effective  in  these  sections  and  these  occupations thc law had to bc made  general throughout Canada.  "This daylight saving fad is  all right for Lhc office man,"  said a laborer, "who docs not  get down lo business until. 9  o'clock. He can spend thc ex Ira  hour after business in lhc afternoon automobiiing. Bul the fellow who has- lo go to work at 7  o'clock does not see any good in  getting up with lhc sun in order  lo quit work in the''middle of the  afternoon."  "If wc could  an hour car  up  dew,  might  lhc" daylight  just get the sun  icr lo dispel .the  says thc farmer, "we  be able to make ,use of  saving fad, but as  it is. avc can'l gel down to field  work any earlier than under the  old time. And wc can't quit in  thc middle of the afternoon as  city folks do."  ���������������������������������������������<><  >o<  ���������������������������o<  >()���������������������������<>  I  8  i  i  Pnlqrfip Prpmier  ���������������������������MUM*  lhe Registered Clydesdale  Stallion  ���������������������������will stand for service at bis  own yard on tlie Creamery ���������������������������  Road: starting April 15th  and will staud till August 1st  Tlie fee will be $12.00 to insure mare with foal.
