 IfiWJS^-Eii'-V.U  Lib  2^.>S*"sJ  ARMSTRONG,  B . C  MONER  ENDERBY,  B.C.  IN WHICH IS MERGED THE ENDERBY PRESS AND ARMSTRONG ADVERTISER.  Vol. XV., No. .21, Whole No. 739  ARMSTRONG, B.C..      THURSDAY, MAY 9, 1918  'Subscription. $2.00 oer vear; 5c the copv  Red Triangle Campaign  Big Winner  a  The rally in the Avalon Theatre, Armstrong, Sunday evening  was a great gathering. The  building, as had becn anticipated, was filled to its capacity.  Printed programs with Y.M.C.A  shrapnel were on every hand.  The volume of song as the  hymns were sung was inspiring,  and the addresses were listened  to with deep interest.  Although Lieut. Whittakcr  had spoken al Kelowna at noon,  at Vernon at 3 o'clock, and although he,was a lillle late in arriving, he was still in good form  and spoke freely. His address  was illumined by many pictures  ���������������������������humorous and grave���������������������������and  made vivid lhc scenes through  which he had lived. Only incidentally did he refer to the Y.  M.C.A. work, but the references  were all thc more cll'cctive for  lhat. 11������������������ was a slrong message,  and was warmly received.  Mr. Halt, the organizer of thc  campaign in North Okanagan,  also addressed thc meeting,  dealing morc at length with thc  deeper values of jhe Y. M. C. A.  work, and explaining the details  of the campaign.  Solos were rendered during  the service by Mrs. Kenny and  Mr. Smith, and thc devotional  exercises were conducted by  Rev. Mr. Stott.  Mayor Wright, who presided,  asked as many as could do so to  sign the subscription cards in  their hands and hand them in at  thc close of thc meeting. Thc  sum of $539 was contributed in  this manner.  On r Tuesday afternoon thc  canvassing committee, assisted  by volunteers, commenced the  actual "work of the" campaign.  The canvassers were Mayor  Wright and Messrs. Creech Ar-  nott, Halliday and Armstrong.  Those loaning autos for the occasion were Messrs.Timbcrlake,  McNair, ..Patten,. McPhail- and  Wrighl. Cars had been'offered  by others, motably onc from  each garage, but. there were no  canvassers to 'man them. , The  campaign, however, continued  on  Wednesday  and.Thursday.  On Tuesday evening thc total  amount subscribed had reached  $1,325, so that the objective of  $1,500 was easily in sight. bike  every , other great campaign  launched in connection with the  great war, it is. probable that  the total Y.M.C.A. objective of  $2,225,000 will he much more  than reached.  an eifort was made to induce  him to give an address in Enderby this week, but word was  received on Tuesday that he  had to return by Wednesday to  his camp at Vancouver and that  it would be impossible for him  to come to Enderby.  Canada's Debt Growing���������������������������  It is announced from Ottawa  that in the fourth year of the  war Canada's expenditure on  war account will approximate  $345,000,000, of which $167,-  000,000 was expended in Canada, and thc balance, $178,000,-  000 represents our war expenditure overseas. Up to March,  1917, we had expended for war  purposes $533,477,030, so that  on March 31 si, 1918, our total  oulluv for. war was approximately "$878,000,000. The amount  does not include any pay due  but not yet paid to thc troops  overseas. During thc past few  ycars the government has applied to war expenditures, surpluses of revenue over ordinary  and capital outlays amounting  to $113,000,000 and interest and  pension payments attributable  to war and covering the entire  war period of approximately  $75,000,000. It is stated that  the net debt of Canada, which  before thc war stood at about  $336,000,000 has now passed  the billion mark and when thc  accounts for the past fiscal year  arc closed it- will reach approximately $1,200,000;000. _. The  increase is almost 'entirely attributable to. war expenditures.  Protect the Forest.

Set-  tleis' tires continue to he the  very worst source of forest conflagrations, ajtbougb: campers  and careless smokers are close  competitors.  "'tlie fire rangers," says the  Canadian "forestry Association,  "want every good citizen to regard himself as a deputy ranger  from now until November "ist.

He took up  the work that he might in this  way help thc community in its  course of development. Hc had  always felt lhat Endcrhy and its  surrounding dislrict deserve a  great deal more' than had yet  been achieved, and his wish was  lhat much greater development  might come in thc future, and  that the little he had been permitted to do might help in thc  davs to conic.

Gadsby, in "Saturday Night,"  Toronto, c Iclls us that "we  are in thc hands of the good  people righl now. This must be  Armageddon, because governments everywhere arc tuning  people up for thc millennium.  Our own government, acting on  thc principle that wc are a law-  abiding people, gives us a new  hnv to abide by every day. They  probably want to see how many  laws wc will abide by before we  make an outcry. They ask us to  obey not thc Ten Commandments only, but thc Ordcrs-in-  Council, thc food regulations  and thc fuel restrictions.  "As we eat less and make few  fires in summer, it will be comparatively easy to live without  sin in any form during the next  few months, but when winter  draws in we will find it much  harder to bc good, because the  weather is unsettled. "Wc are  like the little girl with the curl  in thc middle of her forehead.  "When we are good we are very,  very good, but when we are bad  ���������������������������well, we like it much better.  In a word, I suspect our goodness is a mood, and that all the  laws in the world will not make  it a habit.  "Philosophers tell us that  morals are a matter for the individual, but the tendency of  the times is to make them an  affair of thc state. I remember  with apprehension that Cromwell once gave England the rule  of the saints, and that the reaction was so great that the  worst scandals of Charles the  Second's court were welcomed  as a source of innocent and popular merriment. I don't know  what the men who go "over the  top" will say when they come  home. They went away to fight  for freedom. They will return  to find Canada all tied up likea  sore thumb.  "Goodness is not only represented officially in tlie Cabinet,  but unofficially in tlie person of  Sir Joseph Flavelle, Chairman  of the. Imperial "Munitions  Board, who is living witness to  he fact that the prayer of thc  i righteous man, when applied to  | the   bacon   industry,   is   equiv-  ialent to eighty per cent, profit  j at the very, least.    Sir Joseph is  ' not only good himself, but, like  Providence,  he recognizes  and  rewards    goodness    in    others.  I Goodness with him is a case of  'cold storage.   If the chickens go  bad it is their own fault. If they  remain good they become more  precious than rubies."  i.    "But,"   says   Gadsby,   "Eggs  I are still wilh us,, because eggs  'are hot inflaniing.   Eggs do not  j cause   our   angry   passions   to  irise.    It is part of the brooding  j tenderness   of   a   Government,  j pledged  to universal virtue,  to  encourage the eating of eggs by  j the people at large���������������������������if people  can be considered at large who  'are so hedged about with loving  kindness   and    moral   reform.  i With tliis end in view Sir Geo.  J Foster has fathered a bill to sell  icggs by the pound, which is the  \ right way to sell eggs if the purchaser is to get eggs, and not  grape  nuts..    This  means  that  'each egg must bc full-chested���������������������������-  ���������������������������a perfect thirty-six, so to speak  j���������������������������and   there  must  be  no  air-  j spaces at thc top for evil com-  [munications with  cold storage  to corrupt good manners.   Thc  hens arc to bc inspected by :i  ��������������������������� staff of government inspectors,  and any hen who fails to do her  bit���������������������������onc healthy egg a day in  tlie laying season���������������������������or who tries  I to  pass  off'  undersized  substitutes, will bc shot at sunrise.  We are out to win this war, and  .the hen must do her part, honest in purpose, efficient in per-  1 formance���������������������������ho slacking.    It  is  jnot too much to say that, so far  ' as food supplies for,, the home  'market   are   concerned,   everything is now up to the hen. The.  moral,   physical   and   spiritual  strength of the nation depends  ' on her. The government is disposed to recommend the bru-  'nctte egg rather than the blond  as,a steady diet, blondes being  notoriously , fickle,,  while   Brunettes are constant and true. If  the Hun is to bc overthrown we  [must in some way. or other absorb the virtues of thc brunette  : egg.    An  order-in-council will  be needed to restrain Sir Joseph  from cornering the brown eggs.  Let him liavc the White ones to  post-cure���������������������������he can paint 'em."'

The "Y" a Heavy Loser  During tlie German offensive  of thc pas>t feAV weeks the British and Canadian Y.M.C.A.'s  have been heavy losers. The  bulk, of the loss has fallen on  thc Brilish Association. Jn thc  Third and Fifth Army areas; 81  centres���������������������������huts, dugouts, buildings of all kinds���������������������������have been  wiped out. including in each  case the Y.M.C.A. headquarters,  and it is feared the loss may exceed MJo.OOO.. All tlie workers  are safe and have rendered a  good account of themselves.  In the Fifth Army area 27 centers were lost. One hut leader  was the last man to leave before  the soldiers retreated. Twice he  went back and then became involved in lhe fighting. For three  days he lay hidden, and at last  made his way to AbbeyviUe���������������������������  arid collapsed.  In the Third' Army area five  centres are still running, and it  is hoped that several that have  becn closed owing to thc lighting may bc opened again. A  splendid work is being done in  Amiens. For the last week the  Y.M.C.A. Canteen was the only  place the men could purchase  any comforts. The yyorkers that  have been displaced' by tlie fortunes of war will meanwhile  continue their work for service  men iri summer camps behind  the lines.  At the "Y" Rest Billets  Tlie story -of,.what the Canadian Y.M.C.A. has done for the  men of. our overseas forces is' a  marvellous record of much accomplished with a comparatively small sum of money. Due  entirely to the unqualified success of. the Association's work,  its fields of operation have been  greatly erilarged and increased  in number, 'fhis year the budget calls xf or an income of $2,-  250,000, the largest "ever asked  from Canadians for Y.M.C.A.  work. .  It-is the purpose of the Association that every man  serving with the colors whether  at home^ or overseas, shall be  reached and benefitted by the  ministry of the Red Triangle.  Someone has declared that until the boys come^home the "Y"  takes home to the-boys. *.This is  true; . From the time the men  enlist, tlie "Y" man is at their  elbows to help and to cheer. He  provides them with cheer and  entertainment at the. training  camp.. His dugout appears in  their midst in the trenches. Hut  or marquee provides nerve-  soothing relaxation in the rest  hillets. In the hospital the *tY"  continues its ministry* and on  the way home across the water  it has its pright corner in the  hospital ships. Wherever they  may land the Y.M.C.A. officer  and his staff; are "on the .joh"  Just as they were months or  years before when .the men  sailed away.  Two and a quarter million of  dollars seems as large sum on  paper, hut when the work il can  do in the capahl& hands of the  Y.M.C.A. is considered, it is not  too much to aslc. It will help the  ���������������������������T to help the hoys to "carry  on."  ,������������������  "flome^Trom Home  ^YT^CrAT^Wnts-at^the^front  are the soldier's *home' from  home.

And  I'or lhe renewals of so many staunch friends who  have given us their support in the ycars that are  gone. It is a pleasure to feel that one's efforts to  be of service to this fertile district are appreciated  ancl to know thai we have back of us the support  ol" a progressive community whose confidence we  appreciate and wish to merit.  As a medium for getting into lhc homes of the  district the Commoner is proving of merit, if, wc  arc to accept the verdict of our businessmen who  have made use of our advertising columns. They  tell us they havc noted direct results on a most  satisfving scale. This indicates that lhc people of  thc district are prepared to enter co-operatively  in the general plan of upholding the industries of  thc Arinstrong-Endcrby district. They havc taken  hold of thc "buy al home" slogan in earnest.  What they cannot purchase in thc home* town  stores thev will purchase in thc Valley. Thus will  many thousands ol" dollars be held within the  district for a greater length of time.  Thc closer knitting of this community spirit  in general business and social affairs, thc better  will it bc for all. Thc petty spirit of rivalry will  disappear and wc shall sec each individual and  community glory in the fuller development of  its neighbor. Efficiency will bc in greater demand  and quality of service will be the touchstone of  merit.    . i .  Newspaper comment on a shipment of Chinese  eggs received al Ogdcnsburg, N. Y., recalls to the  student of railroad work in Canada the fact that  manv of the most important gateways between  this country and the United Slates are practically  unknown to the general public. The observant  reader, not knowing that Ogdcnsburg is one of  these important gateways, wonders-why Chinese  eggs should be reported from that point instead  of from New York' or San Fransisco or sonic  other well-known port of entry to the United  States. As a matter of fact Ihey land in ��������������������������� Vancouver from, China. Ogdcnsburg . (opposite Presco It,  Ont.) merely happens to bc lhe end of their trip j  through Canada.  There arc thirty-four railway gateways between Canada and llie United States. That does  not mean mere points at-which lhe boundary line  is intersected by the railway lines, but points of  exchange between Canadian and American carriers. Of these thirty-fcmr gateways fourteen  may be said to be main "entrances and the balance of slightly less importance. Thc fourteen  main entrances are (starting near the Atlantic  and moving westward along the boundary):  Vanceborough, Maine; Island Pond, Vermont;,  Newport, Vermont; Rouse's Point, south of Montreal; Malonc, N: Y.; Niagara Falls; Windsor; Sar-  nia; Sault Sic. Marie; Emerson, Manitoba; Portal,  North Dakota; Kingsgate, B. C; Huntingdon, 13.  C.(;,.and Vancouver.  PEACE KITES  ecia  MEN OR FOOD OR BOTH?  LABOR AFTER THE WAR  It is difficult to know who is right and just  wherc thc nation stands in thc matter ol* food  oroduction and men. Wc havc becn told all along  that food production was morc important than  .men���������������������������more needed by the Allies iii Europe. Now  we are told by Ottawa that men arc more necessary than food production.  At the same time wc havc this from thc British  Ministry of Food: "If the food line at home-is  broken thc holding of thc trenches at the front  will avail us nothing. Mr. Prothcro has stated  that our weak spot is the want of food, and that  food has become thc most, important of munitions of war. "Growing food is an insurance to  save our Town skins. If we were compelled,  through lack of food, to accept a victor's peace  from Germany, wc should bc skinned alive....  "Victory" is the destination lo which wc must  ill travel���������������������������there,musl hc no intermediate station  in this track of. war. Whether we keep the rails  and reach our journey's, >end, or get wrecked ai  Starvation Junction depends upon how much  food >vc can provide for the journey. Join in'lhe  great Food offensive."  And Hon. C. A. Punning, Director of pood Production on thc Canada Food Board, in his message :jlo the Grain Growers' convention, announced that thc Allies will require from every  farmer in Canada al least ten 'acres0 of whealin  1918 for each seven grown in 1917 on the basis V-^-^      } a     convi���������������������������cc<j ihcy wi��������������������������� neyer con.

Let us not fooloursclvcs  ahout it "Shorts and bran, which have hitherto  formed a very large proportion of the feed supply," says a local deiiler, "will not be available to  anything like the extent they will be called for.  The necessity of keeping up the stock will be  greater this year than ever."  Under these circumstances the advisability of  putting in root crops when cereal crops are not  practicable is apparent. Root crops will help out  n feeding all kinds of stock. It will be a cheap  feed, too, and will greatly lessen tlie expense of  feeding. Mangels are mentioned as giving a big  yield per acre. Turnips arc also excellent and  give big returns. They can be planted after the  seeding' is finished. There is ample time yet to  sow fodder corn.

A   little  morc plain English and less legal  phraseology  would  bc  acceptable."

And the ghosts  of the past, the wisdom of thc  ages   answer:    'These   palaces,  these temples,  these cities,  the  ruins of which you stand upon,  were built by tyranny and injustice.

In  1914, the potatoes produced in  Canada amounted in quantity  value to $41,598,000. This statement of fact is suflicicht to indicate tlie important place tlie  potato holds. In Ireland, when  thc potato crop failed the people starved and the rest of the  world felt constrained to send  relief. Canada, with its vast extent of territory, its diverse soil,  and its diverse climate is hardly  likely to go through a like ex  perience; but it is not alone the  welfare of our own domain tliat  avc havc to consider in these  matters, but the demand that is  likely lo arise elsewhere, a demand that has to bc satisfied  and a demand that means gold  lo the country possessing the  wherewithal.

Jt is also shown  lhat it pays to import seed from  a cooler to a warmer climate.

A worthy cause need  not fear either criticism or attack.    And no cause worthy of  thc support of decent citizens  of this or any other land ever  did or does fear it.   It has been  said that "truth wcars.no mask,  bows at no human shrine, seeks  neither place nor applause; she  only asks a  hearing."    And it  may bc added that she not only  {asks a hearing, but demands it,  and will get it, though perhaps  many of her apostles perish by  the wayside in forcing the demand.    Truth may for a time  bc choked oft' by repression and  brutality, but even that, cannot  always prevail.

Sprouting before planting  should be avoided by keeping in  a cool cellar.  The best results arc obtained  by planting lhc sets immediately aflcr cutting.  If disease is discernible soak  for three hours in one pound of  formalin to 30 imperial gallons  of water.  Thc most suitable soil is a  rich, deep, friable, warm, sandy  loam with good natural drainage.  The more thoroughly tlie soil  is prepared tlie better the result  Mill bc.  Delay planting as nearly as  possible to within a week of tlie  last frost. ������������������  Plant the sets four or five inches deep for the main crop and  12 to 14 inches apart in rows  two and one-half feet apart.  As a rule the crops will increase in proportion to the-  numbir of times tlie potatoes  are cultivated during the growing season.  Protect the tops from injury.
