B.C.,  THURSDAY, MAY 3(\ 1918  Subscription. S2.00 per year: 5c the copy  Enderby's Celebration of Empire Day  Enjoyed by Crowd from District  The day was cold and a raw  wind swept oft" the snow-tipped  mountains. But at times the sun  came from behind floating  clouds and brought warmth and  happiness to all. Empire Day  was not all lhat could havc hem  wished for in lhc matter of  weather, bul it was so nenrly  perfect lhat few thought it  worlh while lo complain, and  lhe day's celebralion was v-.led  a huge success by all.  The good cheer of the people,  and lhcir hearty spirit in entering inlo the various items on the  program; their patience in delays and the ever-present word  of cheer on all .sides, were all  indicative ol" the deeu-hearled  desire on thc part of each lo  aid in making lhc celebration  mutually enjoyable'  There is not (be material lo  draw upon these days that used  to bc, and il is no child's play  to get up a program of sports  lo fill lhc day acceptably to a  celebration crowd. Fewer men  are on hand who can take  hold, and carry on the games  and races. This undoubtedly  was the cause of some of the  delays which were' occasioned  in gelling lhe games started.  Bul thc people were patient in  it all, and thc spirit of thc entire  day was splendid. Several hundred people were gathered in  the Recreation Ground. The  gate receipts covered all expenditures in . connection with the  celebration and there will bc a  small balance to bc turned over  to, the. patriotic funds by the  city. The Red Cross booth on  thc grounds took in close onto  booth ^adjoining.' S^We receipts  tit the gale amounted to $336.75.  ^Itwas not ii grandstand day. the  . receipts here amounting to only  $3.50.       -  The'morning game of dhlcr-  " media lc baseball between Salmon   Awn   and   Enderby   was  .pulled oil' ������������������������������������������������������ before thc main  crowd of visitors arrived. It  was, however, witnessed by a  large crowd of fans who booted  and rooted lhc Enderby boys to  ^victory, by a score of 5 to 2.  There, was some good playing  in this game, the runs being  made by the Pwjcrby team in  three innings; 2 in the first, 2 in  the second and X in the seventh-  "Parade,to Grounds  The afternoon spor ts. we re delayed owing to the difficulty in  getting the decorated autos, bicycles and ponies lined up in the  parade.   This feature, however,  proved very interesting and lent  mirth  to the c_J?hralJon spirit  of the day.   The automobiles of  TMr^WCf-Skalin g-and^MrH7^^  .Stevens were well received, each  : showing marked taste and care  in arrangement and detail.     A  prize of $20 was awarded to Mr.  Skaling and $10 to "Mr. Stevens.  In   the  decorated  horse  and  rider brigade Miss  McPhcrson  carried   off   first   prize   as   tbe  Scotch   lassie   on   white   steed; I  'Albert Olson, Tom Davis and  Abe Elliot. Andy Johnson won  first in thc 100 yards dash; H.  Wilson, 2nd; V. Clement 3rd.  Thc same runners carried oil*  the money in the quarter-mile.  The men's relay was won by  W. Jones, Mosc Adams, Constable Patton  and A.  Johnson.  Thc children's races were not  pulled oil* by the committee  handling this end of the sports.  Patriotic Addresses  Acting Mayor Coltart called  the people together at thc band  sland, and in a brief but well-  balanced speech introduced tho  speakers of thc da3% Dr. K. C.  McDonald and Judge Swanson.  Acting-Mayor Coltart drew .attention to thc fact that it had  long been a custom for Endcrhy  to celebrate Empire Day, bul at  the outbreak of war it was  deemed fit and -proper to shelve  this time-honored custom. Now,  however], after three ycars of  war, it was felt that wc could  better show our loyalty to ihe  empire by keeping "the celebration "spirit and thus "carry on"  at home while our boys are heroically doing lhcir duty in the  fighting line. He called upon Dr.  K. C. McDonald, M. P. P.  In, his opening remarks Dr.  McDonald paid tribute to Enderby's spirit" of loyally, and recalled the many enjoyable Empire days hc had spent here on  previous occasions. Hc referred  lo the important part played in  the, great war by thc farming  communities of the country and  particularly to the great need of  greater, production at this time  handling aiid ^"conservation^ of  thc country's' resources and  man-power. Tic was glad to see  thc old custom of celebrating  Empire Day "by Enderby, and  fell that in thus gelling together  and meeting old friends and coworkers wc were as a community bettering the condition of  each and.all. The Empire's need  is now great, and we can besl  serve thc empire by conserving  the old spirit of loyalty to the  home community and district.  Judge Swanson spajce in a  most optimistic vein, yet with  emphasis upon the great need  at Ihis time of serious thought  and careful handling in connection with the mighty problems  now before the people and vet  to come before them requiring  solution. He said no matter  bow darks conditions may appear on tbe battle.front just at  present >ve cannot afford to lose  faith in the ultimate triumph of  the cause cf thc Allies. The recent change in command at the  front,nfcei.ng_one, man_jn__sub.  prcmc authority over all the allied fighting forces, was, he said,  certain to bring good results.

MAY "SO. 1918  OKANAGAN   COMMONER  Central Experimental Farm Urges  Systematic Weining of Pigs  Weaning time is the most  critical period of the hog's life.  The approved practice is to  wean, at about six weeks. Teach  the Utter to cat three weeks before weaning. Use a crib or  creep which excludes the sow,  or a separate pen. Feed in a  trough, preferably, middlings  with skim milk. With middlings at present unobtainable,  finely ground sifted oats is best.  Feed only small quantities at  first and avoid having decomposed or stale food left over.  After weaning, add shorts gradually to equal parts and from  . the second to the third month  add barley or corn as one-third  the total meal ration.. First and:  last, avoid over-feeding with its-  consequent train of evils. |  Within the last year at the  Central Experimental Farm ex-;  periments and subsequent prac-;  tice has indicated a system by;  which weaning is simplified and,  the bad results of careless feed-.  ing practically eliminated. In-,  stead of "hand-weaning" or,  feeding the weaning pigs milkj  and meal in a trough, a small j  self-feeder is substituted in the  F creep, skim milk being fed in;  a separate trough. Fine-ground  oats and shorts, and later eleva-  tor screenings with a small proportion of ground corn aire .put  in the feeder. Thus the little pig  feeds himself as much and as  often as he sees fit, and is able  to eliminate from the meal the  fibrous material which he must  consume willy-nilly where fed  a slop, and incidentally accustoms himself gradually to skim  milk. Except in cases of" early  litters, thc little pigs are given  Cheer Up!  access  to  out-door runs  at  all  times from two to three//weeks  ���������������������������Ad. Excellent growth is shown,  the pigs developing clean, long,  thrifty,   with   no   evidence   of  thickness, pudginess or lack of  energy. Absolutely no evidence  of indigestion  or scouring lias  been seen, and in one instance  where a dozen  Utters were  so  fed at"a*'centra, feeder the percentage  of   culls  was  remarkably low. When finally removed  from the sow, pigs so weaned,  particularly  when- they  are   to  be self-fed -subsequently,, give a  '.minimum evidence of the stop  in  growth,  usually  incident  to  weaning in a greater or lesser  degree.    In short, while the experienced  hog-man  can  hanid-  weaii his pigs with maximum  I results, the farmer lacking ex-  Ipericnce or depending, upon al-  i ways   changing   attendants,   is  i apt to run into difficulties.   Tlie  method   described   besides   reducing    labor    apparently    removes the danger of over-feed-  iing..   Both method and results  might,  be   described   as   auto-  ! ma tic.  Just buckle in and keep your grin.  Don't ever say "We may not win.  When   things   go  wrong  and   skies  look black.  Don't magnify the foe's attack.

I To your Interest as well  In the foregoing method,  skim milk plays, an important  part. When this or other milk  product is not available, experimental evidence would, go to  show that good pigs may be  raised by following this method  and supplying tankage, blood-  meal, fish hieal or some similar  animal product in a separate  section of the feeder, not mixed  with the regular meal. Pigs so  fed have.shown only slightly inferior in quality to skim milk  fed lots, but the cost to produce  | would seem to be considerably  increased.  Hay  and  Clover MeadoAVS  About 11 p.c of the area  under hay and clover is reported as winter-killed, as compared with 9 p.c. last year. The  condition in percentage of the  standard represen ting a full  crop is 84 for all Canada as  compard with 86 last year. For  the provinces tlie percentages  are as follows: Maritime provinces 92-96; Quebec 86; Ontario 78; Manitoba 70; Saskatchewan, Alberta and British  Columbia 90-95.  Share British Wheat  We have shipped much of  our precious wheat to the Italians and French and we must  face the fact that this has altered conditions so that - they  conceivably may become acute  in the United Kingdom. Unless  the people of Canada and the  United States sped up their production of food supplies the Allies oinay find it very difficult to  carry this war on to that conclusion'which will mean a permanent peace.  -_\  ours.

THURSDAY, MAY 30, 1918 ~~  PULLING TOGETHER  There are those���������������������������thinkers���������������������������in this land and in  other lands���������������������������who believe that the great European war is only the outward eruption of the  carbuncle on the neck of civilization, and that the  eruption will continue until tlie poison of greed  and hatred with which the world is afllicted is  eradicated and the 'body politic made.= clean.  The war���������������������������according to this school of thought���������������������������is  but the natural outcome of the condilions of society and commerce of the past century. Thc  world is cleansing itself of ils baser habits of  thought and intrigue. It is eating itself up. These  thinkers believe, we have not yet begun to feel the  pangs of hunger and of sorrow and of woe which  must come ere the warring nations will have attained thc point of humility where lhere will be  no dividing line between friend and foe and each  will reach"forth. i\ helping hand lo the othcr to  lift up aiid help build anew the torn and shattered  remnant of humanity's house of follies.  What is true of nations is true of communities.  Petty jealousies must cease; bickering and intrigue, one against the othcr, must come to an  end; the high and the low must meet on common  ground; constructive thought must replace present destructive thought; all must co-operate with  tlie object of mutual helpfulness. The "piker"  must give way to the man who can make good:  the "knocker" must bc put away where lie cannot  be heard; the "grafter" must find real work lo  do.  Each community must hold up its end. There  must bc no'slackers. So far as "conditions after  the Avar? are concerned, thc war is ended now.  We must start now to build for tlie future. Now,  before the slump comes, is thc lime to lay thc  foundation. "Production" is lhc keynote of the  new era. Production and co-operation musl go  hand in hand.

But what seemed  mere matter of sport at Westminster is re-j  garded seriously in Canada; and there is no j  doubt that we shall have to reckon with the reso- ���������������������������  lution in a similar sense lately adopted by the  legislative assembly of British Columbia, as well  as'another of like" import about to be introduced  into the Dominion House of Commons by a  former Minister of the Crown. Canadians do not  appear to be troubling themselves about the  grant of hereditary honors in the Empire generally, hut only,with their bestowal on 'citizens  of the Dominion.' But you can not have hereditary titles in onc part of the empire and not in  another, and we shall hope in time to see a  reasonable number of really distinguished Canadian peers. It is a far cry to the days when a  House of Baronets was actually in contemplation as part of a projected Canadian Parliament. Pitt did not object to the proposal in  principle, but the spirit of the age was already  too democratic to make it feasible." o  The Guardian does not appear to have fully  realized that Canadians are serious in this matter  of autocracy's baubles. The autocrats of Europe  have played" with this word "democracy" so long,  and have made use of it in so many -ways to deceive the masses that they cannot realize that  people can really be sincere in demanding it.  What will papers like Thc Guardian say when  it is pointed out that il was not "a former minister of the Crown" lhat introduced tlie resolution inj thc Dominion House, but Sir Robert  Borden himself? Surely this should make it  clear enough that Canada means business when  we say we do not want any morc of autocracy's  baubles forced upon us. The statement of the  Guardian that "you cannot havc hercdiary titles  in one part of the Empire and not in another," is  all bosh. As well say we must have tlie flunkey-  ism of Europe forced upon us because flunkey-  ism is part of the game of autocracy.

Bul don't  Field Marshall Hindenberg is credited with an  unfortunate boast, that has been made in the  past, with no resultant accomplishment. Early  in April hc said to an interviewer that it was his  purpose to drive the British into the sea. The  boast is not unfamiliar to students of British military history. During the Peninsular Wan, Marshall Soult,"onc of the most brilliant of Napoleon's generals, announced that he was going to  bestow a similar punishment on the forces of the  Duke of Wellington. At that lime Wellington  was so close to the sea that the boast did not seem  rash; nevertheless Soult decided not to make'the  effort. A few years later Napoleon, upon his return from Elba, announced to his friends a similar project, though he did .not go out with a  brass band to proclaim it. Thc object of his surprize advance upon' Blucher and Wellington. |  which culminated in Waterloo, was to separate  thc Prussian and British armies, and drive the  latter out ol' Belgium inlo lhc sea.

Il seems-incredible, bul it is Irue, thai in  Canada as in olher colonies, we have title hungry  men and women who are ready to tumble over  each olher in their desire lo get hold of the. bauble handed out by autocracy in order lo perpetuate lhe very thing our boys arc fighting and  dying in thc Irenches of" Flanders to end.  Thc fact of the Canadian parliament putting  an end'to the shower of titles which has  upon Canada each year, is ample evidence that,  so far as the people of Canada are concerned,  autocracy may keep the baubles of the Anointed  of the Lord overseas, where they can not contaminate the purity of our Canadian democracy. Men  who havc accepted titles would set a good example to the world and at thc same lime demonstrate the sincerity of Canada in this fight for  democracy if Ihey would do as Sir Wilfred Laurier suggested sonic lime ago���������������������������make a bonfire of  tlie baubles.  Some of the London papers havc been horribly  shocked at Canada's iconoclastic temerity in  dealing with lhis IiLie business. For example,  Tlie Guardian writes: "A few years ago lhe  House of Commons unanimously passed a resolution for lhe abolition of all hereditary lilies.  Members did nol really desire, anything of the  kind: they just took thai (ralher silly) way of  closing  a   discussion   initiated  by   one   of   lhcir  ONEROUS TAXATION  All people realize that in war time, we musl expect heavy taxation. But -in war time, also, we  should look lo"theeconomizing in expenditures  in order lo keep the need of heavy .taxation as  low as possible. Apparently our provincial government does not think there is any need for  economy, .for. the overhead cost of running the  government���������������������������oflice help, new office heads, etc.,  is being increased each monlh.  In order.to .meet this increased overhead cost,  the surtax was put on; also the various ancl sun-  alien dry other forms of taxation, all more or less onerous. In further increasing these taxes the government must sooner or later stop allydvelop-  ment along certain, lines and put other concerns  entirely out of business. The Trail News says:  "The onerous provincial mining tax has resulted  in the practical closing of the Rossland mines,  where lhe output is largely gold, although gold  will not"1 buy as much by about half as three or  four years ago. This was not even a war tax, but  one lo raise revenue, and it appears.as though tho  loss of ���������������������������revenue to lhc government would be considerable with thc mines not producing���������������������������through  the numerous indirect sources that make cash  flow into thc government from live communities.  11 is unforunale all around."  9  We have for sale:-  WHFAT  OATS  PAiW  m  GRASS ANP  VE GETAPIES.  if All Government Tested 'j*  9  i  A  Ox  William McNair  Armstrong.  34-4  What have thc newspapers of Canada done  thai lhcy musl have forced upon them the most  beaurocratic censorship regulations imposed by  any of lhe fighting powers outside of Germany?

Pte. Gl A. Bucknell writes as  follows: "I"-received your parcel all O. K. and I cannot ex-  i press in words my thanks to  you for your kindness. It is very  cheering to get a parcel from  old friends. The news from tlie  front may look dark, but we  [' are confident that the ultimate  will be victory for us."  Writing from St. Bartholomew's Hospital, London, Sapr.  S. F. Waby says: "I received a  box from you dated March 23rd  and I can assure you I am very  grateful for your kindness. The  cake was a treat, as wc hardly  know what a cake tastes like on  tliis side of the water. I don't  smoke myself but I am sure the  boys in the hospital will be. very  glad of them and they wish to  thank you. I am not in a Canadian hospital but expect to go  to a Canadian Con.

Late  in  the  month  of June,  in   lhc  year of Our Lord 1918,-in -the |  Avalon Theatre,  there is.to hc]  given   a    performance    of   thc j  "Yokohama    Maid,"    by    local  talent; in aid of'the Home Comfort Club.

Waggett, assisted by Mr.  Mr. Timberlake Motors  Home  Mr. H. S. Timberlake returned from Grand Forks on  Monday, accompanied by his  mother. Mr. Timberlakc drove  his own car over, so it is apparent that he was not seriously  injured in the motor accident  reported last week. Mr. Timberlakc had a very narrow escape. Hc was coasting down a  hill six miles out of Rock  Creek, with the motor shut off,  and going at a very moderate  speed", when the roadbed gave  way under thc car, allowing it  to roll over a rocky incline. Mr.  Timberlakc was pinned under  the car, where he was held for  30 minutes before assistance  came. His Armstrong friends  were delighted tp welcome him  home, and to learn of his good  fortune in getting off so-lightly.  Weekly Shows Ended  Manager Bobb has concluded  lo stop his weekly shows in thes  Enderby Opera House;-. There  was no show Monday night.  Feature shows will be put on  occasionally; and an effort will  bc made to keep these up to the  highest rank. Tlie regular provincial "movie" tax and the late  Dominion tax makes it impossible, to run^a show in a small  town at a profit. These taxes  in can to the small house an ad?  ditional cost of $5 to $10 each  performance. With other expenses going up proportionally,  the average small-towii "movie"  house if run at ail.must be run  at a Toss to the. opera tor.  A Settler Wants Help  For a long, long while Frank  Miska has been appealing to  the government to give him a  wire cable 300 feet long that he  might rig up a ferry to enable  him to cross the river to his  homestead situated on the  Trinity Valley side two or three  miles this way from the Trinity  Valley bridge. Mr. Miska has  quite a farm along the river  and is developing rapidly. But  he has no way of reaching his  place except by boating across  the river. Last year he had  several tons of potatoes to sell  and had to boat them across to  tliis side two or three sacks at  a time. He has cut a trail on  the opposite side of the river  two miles and a half from his  place to the Trinity Valley  bridge, but cannot get anything  over it but what he can carry  on his back. He says if the  government will provide the  cable hc will rig up the ferry  from lhis side of the river to  his place. The government  ollicials havc often promised to  do so,,, but nothing further has  come of it. Mr. Miska now is  endeavoring to join with his  neighbors in shipping cream to  the Armstrong creamery. They  expect to havc 50 cows milking  this fall, and he has asked The  Commoner to help.him get thc  cable for the ferry.

Food Administration, in a recent address at lhc Federal Food  Board Conference, stated tliat  about 4,750.000 persons have  died of starvation in Europe  since the. war began, while 4.-  250.000 have been ^killed by  lighting. ".   ' -  Normal consumption in. thc  United Stales for March to September, ^inclusive, amounts lo  about 42,000.000 bushels of  wheal per month.. In order lo  meet IhcVeq.uiremcnts of lhc  Allies two-thirds of lhis amount  must be shipped, leaving Jess  than 15.000.000������������������ bushels : per  month for home consumption.  Thc pool*, he said, cannot be expected to save as much wheat  as those in. belter circumstances  because wheat is lhc cheapest  of lhc nutritional foods. All.  however, should use substitutes  just as far as their circumstances will permit.  "We arc 34,000.000 bushels  behind in���������������������������our schedules of shipments of wheat to thc Aliics���������������������������  but we arc going to catch up or  else���������������������������wc cannot win lhe war."
