The men at thc  front havc done nobly. Thc women of the British Empire havc  done well. Thc girls havc done  well. But this meeting honors  thc work of thc boys, of whom  25,000 in Canada responded to  the call for help in thc harvest  fields.  Dr. Sovereign recited many  incidents of thc splendid work  of thc boys on the farms, many  employers testifying that these  hoys were amongst the best help  they had.

He felt that it was- a great  honor to be able to render thc  splendid ''service these boys had  done during the summer. Tlie  badge pinned on the coat was a  small thing, but it would serve  to show in after years the noble  duty performed by the S. O. S.  |f this work is.continued next  year, the speaker could promise  the hearty support from this  district. ?  f\e\. C. M- Wright,, organizer  of the S. O. S. movement ih Algeria and "British Columbia, said  this was by far Uic most enthusiastic meeting held in the Okanagan. During the last few days  over 2,000 badges had been  given out in these two provinces.  fie had travelled much in the'  Province; had seen its great  timber belts, its mining districts,  its fisheries, and the vast wheat  fields of the Prairies. He had a  great idea of thc immense  wealth of Canada. But the last  year of work among and with  the boys had given him a new  ^concepUon^of^-the^possible^po^  tcntialitics of Canada. To realize  it onc must havc a great, well-  trained manhood. Wc must not  neglect thc training of our manhood.  Germany cannot win because  of what is taking place among  Canadian 'boys. Hindenburg  states that in Germany, since  the war began, crime has increased 100 per cent among the  older boys. Why? Because  Germany flunks of them only  as fodder for the guns. Even in  England and Canada this wave  of restlessness amongst the boys  is evident. This is because the  boys are not being trained.

In warm  weather your room* can go  "hang" so long as your skin  feels cool or there Is a breeze,  whereas In cold weather your  !ungs can go to "hang" so long  as your rooms feel cool-less and  breeze-less. Thus It comes to  pass that In hot weather, at  home, at the factory, at school,  in office and public building,  every man, wom'an and child  gets ventilated twenty-fcur hours  every day; whereas, ^each and  all such g������������������t ventilated but a  fraction of an hour or two during the cold weather.

ARMSTRONG  FALL  FAIR  Undoubtedlv there arc many people of verv  worthy ihtenlions who are not a little opposed; tjlc "desirable young  to thc "holding of a Fall Fair at Armstrong as we  havc bcen accustomed to do, particularly while  the war-is on. But we .do.-not believe tbey are  anything like as numerous as the people-who are  as "strongly in favor of holding the fair���������������������������-while  the war continues as well jus at any other tune���������������������������  provided enough exhibitors can be found to  make the Falf Fair worth while. Undoubtedly  thcrc is good cause for many to desire tbe Fall  Fair lo be laid over, and the least of these reasons  is not owing to the lack of labor and time lo pre-  exhibifs.    Indeed, if the truth were known,  Al a meeting, in Winnipeg, of representatives  of agriculturakbanking, commercial and railway  interests called bv Mr. J. D. McGregor of the  Canada Food Board, a resolution was passed  asking the Manitoba Government to take immediate action whercbv all the young female  stock -would be retained" in the counlry, by purchasing such stock and distributing it among the  farmers in those sections of Manitoba where feed  is available. Tliis action was made desirable in  view of the almost entire lack ot iced in the  southern parts of thc "'Western provinces, and  lhc fact that this condition was causing the  forced marketing of voung cattle in large numbers, including desirable breeding stock, ll  moposed   that   the  For  Government  should  buy  females that are  pare  However  is  alii  offered on i  the Winnipcg'market, and sell Ihem to farmers,  on suitable terms in districts where lhere is. a;  good crop and large quantities of hay. lt is esti-j  mated that between 20,000 and 30,000 breeding;  cat lie could be saved in this way. j  It is expected that this plan will solve the prob-'  lem of depletion of livestock in Western Canada.;  lis full importance can only be realized in cornice-j  lion with lhe fact that such tremendous inroads  have heen made into the livestock herds of Eur-!  ope, due to thc need of meal and the shortage ol ,  feed. After thc war the country that has large;  numbers of cattle will he in  the best condition!  avc believe this is the principle reason.   _   _   it would be poor policy lo postpone tlie Fall Fair,lo ^j-j, advantage of the conditions lhat prevail at;  for anv such reason.

And. even il'nicllt.  thev do mean a little extra effort on the part of  the" individual exhibitors, they are well repaid  for everv hour worked overtime.  The success of the present Fall Fair will depend largely if nol wholly upon the collective  work of Ihc'individual exhibitors.  In a recent address Mr. McGregor emphasizes  the unsurpassed livestock possibilities in thc western  provinces.

There is usually a fringe of production  which wc must try to get along without. It would  not do to raise the price to everybody, say, 25 per  cent to make it worth while for a few growers  on the edge of production to increase the total by  a small margin. On the other hand, as in .the  packing industry, a level price that would be sufficient for the large packers would put many a  small packer out of business���������������������������and the country  needs their production.  "Tb remedy suggested to equalize conditions is  to establish prices "as nearly as may he sufficient  to maintain the industry as a whole and to levy a  .    . heaw tax on excess profits.

Tlie  tune to sell is then,.not now. There should be no  reason for-.our growers to crowd the markets.

How s\veoi the'bell  rings  from  the old church tower!
A peal of joy for ihe bridal hour:
Heart joined io heart, let whatever betide,
They'll   i'ace   lite   together,   side by side.
The. cruel war took him, she was alone;
Life'-was before her, work lo  bc done;
No  time  for idling, these dreadful times,
The dog of sorrow at every door whines.
The  evening shadows were falling nigh,
A young mother sang sweet lullaby
To the baby boy she ciasped to her breast,
.Cuddled so ciosc in his soft, warm nest.
A woman sat listening, a.s loud and clear
The sweet midnight chimes  fell on  her ear.
"Oh. where is my boy, she sob'd in despair:
Then   stumbling   footsteps  went up thc stair.
With a bitter sigh, she after him went,
Hcr lonely night's vigil was nearly spent.
In a drunken sleep he lay on his bed,
"Oh, iny only son," was all she said
Far away on Flanders' blood-stain'd  fields
Where' every  sod   a   bitter  tale yields,
where thc gates of Hell arc opened up wide.
And death and woe sweep through like a tide;
Just around a rock on a patch of green,
A soldier lay with his face unseen.
He began to mutter in feeble tones:
"I'm only a wreck whom nobody owns.
To help my old Country I've done my part���������
liut, God, I broke my dear mother's heart. ���������:
My hope of Heaven, I'd give just to hear
Her sweet voice say: 'All's forgiven, dear.
And what will my brave soldier^ father say
,   When we meet on the great Resurrection Day?"
A nurse knelt cpiietly down by his side;
She stroked his hair, and he feebly sigh'd.
She said, "My boy, will you tell me-her name,
I'll give her you message; it willease her pain." o
He  turned  his  face  to the  fast waning light;
Then, with a wild gasp, he sat upright!
"Oh, can it be you, my mother?"���������he sighed;
His lips met hers, as he sighed and died.
A narrow grave, with a cross at its head;
The resting place of hcr darling dead;
His life's work ended, his short race run,
In his last sleep lies her only son.
As a fair illustration of the
rabbit pest in certain parts of
New Zealand, and especially in
Ihe drier sections of Uic South
Island, it is stated that on an
estate lately taken over by llie
New Zealand government, comprising 12,-146 acres of freehold
and a pastoral run of 19,250
acres, there were killed or captured about 120,000 rabbits in
order to clear up the property
so as to make it suitable for the
location of returned soldiers.

days with the wife away and
the home vacant.
'There is no question about

The  population of Britain is 45,000,-  000; ours is more than 100,000,-  000. Half of our army is still  going in British ships.

"Thc  fact   of   the  mallciy is  lhat    thc    Germans . now   imd  . themselves  in  a  situation  very  | similar to that occupied hy the  j Allies   during   the   spring   and  'early summ<T.    They have lost  J the ' initiative,    temporarily   at  j least,   and   are   already   under  vigorous attack on two separate  'sections of front. They are probably now outnumbered in both  men and guns, while Germany's  j depleted    reserves    arc    being  matched against America's  almost inexhaustible man power.  ; It   is   unquestionably   our   aid  ! which  has   turned   the  tide  of  battle so rapidly in  thc Allies'  favor���������������������������and Shis is.said with all  due respect to Foch's strategic  genius.    It now looks ������������������as if he  would    be    able     to     accom-  lish much this fall that0most observers thought would havc to  wait till next spring. This is not  i meant to imply-that the war is  'nearly over.   Far from it.   And  wc    must    be    on    our   guard  against   over-confidence.      Gcr-  imany  is  a  dangerous  andre-  jsourccful enemy,  and  we ,may  j bc   sure   that   hcr  leaders   will  ��������������������������� make thc most desperate efforts  before winter to win back thc  ��������������������������� initiative and gain a measure  of success for political purposes  at home and abroad. Yet it is  hard to sec how, in the face of  tlie present Allied offensive, the  Germans can return to the attack with much promise of success. They are being pressed  back at the two points most essential for thc development of  their great strategic aims of the  spring and summer. Meanwhile  every day that passes brings  fresh thousands of American  troops to France and from the  French .training, camps to thc  firing line. Certainly one reason that Foch has been able to  ! develop during this summer  plans hither I o contemplated for  nexl spring is the really splendid  showing of thc American troops  =i n-ba t tfe.���������������������������-N o Uo n 1 y-i n-q ua ntiLy,  but also in quality lhcy have  surpassed lhc greatest expectations ol" the Allied leaders, and  Lloyd George,;paid them a well-  earned compliment when hc  said in his recent speech before  Parliament:  " 'It is not merely that lhcy  fought with courage; everyone  expected that of tlie American  army; but Ihey have fought with  a trained skill lhal no one ever  expected or had a right lo expect. The men arc brave, but  tlie .officers, who after all are  not trained'ollicers in the ordinary sense of ihe. term, have'displayed skill and experience and  management of their men under  trying conditions which you  could hardly expect from men  who have net had a great deal  of  the experience of war.'  "The Allies, including Japan  and the United Slates, have-at  hist agreed upon a plan'.of  action in Russia nnd Siberia. It  amounts to a declaration of war  on lhe Bolshcviki. Indeed, it is  not unlikely tliat when the  Allies' policy is put into practical effect it will,draw a formal  declaration of war from'the Bolshevist government. The plan  in Siberia is to dispatch an Allied expeditionary army to Vlad-  ivostock to cooperate with thc  Czccho-Slovak forces which  havc  been   recently  contending  for supremacy in Siberia with  thc Bolshcviki and thc armed  Austro-Gcrman prisoners aiding *  them. For thc present this Al-jll  lied expeditionary force will beje  small, comprising about 7,000 j fj  American and 7,000 Japanesejg  Iroops together with a few hun- X  dreds of British and French.
