It is understood that lhis  change in the summer military  Iirogram has been necessitated  iy insurmountable difficulties in  handling two small units such  as the first and second Depot  Battalions, divided as they are  now between Montreal and Val-  .earlier.  In well-informed circles it is  said that had draftees been secured iii; anything like the numbers hoped for, the summer  camp program as commenced  !early twoj months ago would,  have worked out quite satisfactorily.     *.. v ��������������������������� ������������������������������������������������������  NOTICE TO  FARMERS  All growers of grain north of Enderby will please note that a.s soon  as 'the grain i.s harvested 1 will  make the rounds with my threshing  crew as heretofore.  A. TomkixsonV Grindrod, B. C.  According to the Dominion  Bureau of Statistics, all estimates of crops sown in the spring  have had to be revised, the decrease being caused by unfavorable '.weather conditions in the  West. For Wheat, the total estimate is now 15,838;000 acres,  or 7 p.c. more than last year,  spring wheat occupying 15,497,-  000 acres, or 10 p.c. more than  last year and fall wheat 340,700  acres, or 53 p.c. less lhan last  year. For oals thc area sown is  now placed at 13,748,000 acres,  or 4 p.c. more, than lasl year;  for barley thc area is 2,403.750  acres, and for rye 228,700. Peas  occupy 205,730 acres, mixed  grains 501,400 acres, hay and  clover 8,015,250 acres, and alfalfa 102,900 acres. In the three  prairie provinces lhc area sown  to wheat is 14,964.000 , acres,  comprising 2,618,000 acres in  Manitoba, 9,101,000 acres in  Saskatchewan, and 3,245,000  acres in Alberta.  In general, thc condition of  grain crops in lhc Atlantic provinces is not so good as it was  this lime last year, and there is  also a slight falling off as compared wilh a month ago; but the  prospects for good yields are  fair. In Prince Edward Island  thc condition of wheat is 2 over,  in Nova Scotia 1 below and in  New Brunswick 1 over the decimal average. Oats arc two  points below average in Prince  Edward Island and Nova Scotia  and 1 above average in - New  Brunswick. In0 Quebec condi:-  tions have gone back in June  but arc still much more favorable than they .were ;a year, ago.  Spring wheat is. 103, oats\are  101 amJVbarJcy is<l00. .Jii^n-  tario'"fall wheat remains poor,  being 70, or 30 p.c. below average, but spring .wheat- is 101.  Oals and barley, arc equal to the  average. In lhc three prairie  provinces drough and continuous high winds during June  havc caused serious damage to  wheat crops, and large areas  have had to be rcsown to other  crops. Jn the northern parts of  these three provinces, however,  the rainfall has beep sufficient,  anc| conditions are fairly promising, "for spring wheat the  condition is expressed numerically bv 88 in Manitoba, 85 in  Saskatchewan and 83 in Alberta.. This is ten to twelve per  ccnl below average, Jn British  Columbia hot, dry weather in  May and the early part of June  retarded growth, and the condition of oats is J4 and of wheat  JQ^p.c. below average.  Tbe estimated acreages of  later sown cereals and of hoed  crops, as compared" with J917,  arc for alt Canada as follows:  Buckwheat 407,800 a^ against.  395;977rflax~927,30Q as "agailisT  919,500, corn for busking 213,-  400 as against 234,339, beans  105,560 as against 92,457, potatoes 680,300 as against 356,958,  turnips, etc., 216,970. as against  218,233, sugar'beets J3,20Q as  against M,000 and corn for fodder 344,700 as against 366,518.  The area under beans shows an  increase of 14 p.c, and that under potatoes an increase of 4  p.c. The area sown to both of  Ihesc crops is lhc largest on record; lhc increase of beans is  chiefly in Quebec and of potatoes in Quebec and Alberta.  Prawn From Comedy  Lee Morris, Martin Kinney  and Mrs. Walter Reid. all actors  in Fox film comedies, were  drafted into the dramatic department of thc V/illiam Fox  studios to appear in street  scenes for William Far mini's  ncxt picture, "A Tale of Two  Cities." This photoplay deals  with a French Revolution story,  and these three aclors were  taken from lhe comedy department because they were "types"  -���������������������������that is, they exactly looked  the part of the meagre. Parisians  of the eighteenth century.  "A Tale of Two Cities" will  be-shown at the Avalon Theatre  on Tuesday, August 20th, with a  special matinee at 2.30.  SCHOOL TRUSTEES MEET  Decide to Call a Public Meeting  to Consider the Question of  Manual Training and Domestic Science.  GOOD GAME OF BALL  Farmers Beat the City Chaps by  a Single Run���������������������������Game Ended  in Seventh Inning.  At a meeting of the Enderby  Board of School Trustees held  last ".week,'*;"the-' application of  Miss Allen, late of Kerrisdak  B. C, was accepted as teacher  for Division III in the Fortune  school. In all some twenty applications were received for thc  position.    These were  to Inspector Anstey and later,  Miss Beattie, who as principal  expressed the desire that the applicant to bc selected should  have had practical experience  for a year or two. Under those  conditions and in view of thc excellent qualifications of Miss Allen, shc was chosen "for the position. Miss Allen has had two  or lhree ycars experience in Kcr-  risdalc, and also taught in thc  Model School, Vancouver, and  comes highly recommended.  Thc board officially congratulated Miss Beattie on thc very  satisfactory results in the entrance examinations.  A letter from thc B. C. School  Trustees' Association inquired  about holding the annual School  Convention at Enderby this fall,  and thc secretary ���������������������������was instructed  to advise thc association as to  accommodations. *'  It was  decided  to have thc  school fence painted before the;  opening of school.    "  Mr. Kyle, provincial organizer for the Manual Training  and Domestic Science -. department, appeared before the meeting, and iirged that action bc  taken in the matter. It was decided to call a. public meeting  to be held in the assembly hall  ,of thc school, .Aug. 9th, for the  purpose of placing the-matter  before thc public;'     -: "   '-��������������������������� ''-'  It threatened rain last Thursday evening, but that did not  lessen the crowd that attended  the baseball game played on l"io  Recreation Ground at Armstrong, between a team from  the district and one from the  city.

Reasons for'objection on  the part of lhc governmcnl to  appointing a conciliation board  arc that it is obviously impossible for the government to  hand over its functions to any  outside body.

It  has,  as  above  staled,  expressed its readiness to do this  in  connection  with   the  postal  employees'  claims.

The  latter  should   be   performed   out  of choice,  and  because    of    the  pleasant   associations   attending  employment  practicable  in  moderation   and   for  the   love   of   it.  Proper    and     needful     exercise  stimulates appetite and digestion  and  enables the aged person to  eat to   live,   in   lieu  of   living  to  eat,  or  going  through   the  ceremony of taking  food  at   regular  intervals   regardless   cf   the   demand  of the system.

An  excellent   rule  for  people  of advanced  life  is, first,  to never take food  except anae-  o  tite   demands   it,   sscond,   nsver  eat until appetite Is fully satisfied.

Our own efforts to care for  our soldiers aflcr the war can  Ibesl be fulfilled if wc keep up  wilh what others arc doing. The  :British 'Empire is taking long  |steps toward providing for thc  soldiers aflcr thc war in a way  lb increase lhc supply of food.  In England. Wales, ancl Scotland some land lias already been  bought for thc purpose, by the  Board of Agriculture and Fish-  cries. Canada has set aside land  and arranged lo lend $2,000 to  each applicant, as a 5 per cent  first mortgage, running fifteen  .vears. A,pplica)n.ts must have  had previous farm experience,  though intending farmers can  go to demonstration farms and  he paid current wages while obtaining the required experience.  In New Zealand thc rules are  much like those in Canada. Australia has set aside $190,000,000  to a similar end, and others besides soldiers may apply.

Anolher in-  teresling slep in lhis direction  is being laken in Canada, with  great possibilities in the future.  Land is secured near a town or  village, the cultivation is supervised by an expert farmer, and  under him lhc work is done by  men from the lown factories  and industries. Sometimes this  work is co-operative. . In any  case il is an answer to the seasonable aspect of unemployment. Tn lhis connection we. recall Ihe slalemenl by Victor  Boret, thc French Foo|d Minister:  "Thc Allies should, be grateful to two men after victory has  bcen obtained. First, to thc general who leads his men to win  the decisive battle, and second,  lo Herbert Hoover, who rendered il possible for lhe soldiers  lo eaVso tbat they might fight."

"THURSDAY, AUGUST 1, 1918  THE MAIL CLERKS' STRIKE  , It is dillicull lo sec how lhc Union Government "is going lo justify its course in dealing with  the-mail clerks''strike,'in'view of lhe position  taken by tlie Minister of Labor-in dealing wilh all  olher disputes between employers and laborers,  which have persisted in disturbing llie commercial life of lhe Dominion*within the past year or  morc. The one demand made by the Government in dealing wilh the coal miners' strike, lhc  ship builders' strike, the threatened C.P.R. employees' strike���������������������������in short, all labor disputes���������������������������has  been that both parlies should submit their,case to  a board of concilialion.and that the findings of  that board should be final. This position was  backed up by the public;'because'it was believed  to bc the only fair way to reach a settlement.  What musl have been the feelings of the public,  therefore, when the Government '-leaders at Otta-  was refused to listen to'thc demands'of the postal,  clerks thai a board of conciliation should bc appointed lo hear the points at issue between the  clerks and the poslollicc department? All the  men have stood out i'or has been the right to bc  heard before a conciliation board. This Ottawa  has not seen fit lo grant.  In othcr words, what the Government has proposed and demanded of private individuals and  corporations in settling labor disputes, has been  refused when it becomes a question dealing with  employees by thc Government itself. What is  sauce "for thc goose should, bc sauce for thc  gander.  Thc Victoria Colonist well stales thc case when  it says: "The government has exhibited a weakness and followed a laissez fairc policy in the  present circumstances which arc fairly reprehensible. Thc public fully realize the.unusual  inconvenience they arc laboring under at the present moment, yet there is no doubt that thc consensus of opinion is in favor of the appointment  of the conciliation board for which thc employees  arc asking. And such board will, no doubt, recommend, the demands of thc employees be  granted. Thc Government, by temporizing with  an acute situation, is aggravating conditions at a  time when conciliation in internal troubles should  be the watchword of thc hour. Whether or not  any individual at Ottawa is responsible for the  present impasse'it would bc dillicult to say, but  what is certain is that the influences at work,  which prevent thc men's demands being met, \yill  have to be swept aside. Wc regret exceedingly  having to take this' attitude where a Union Government is concerned, but there is no other course  open in view of the circumstances of  tions. Nor is this all. There will be a new code,  as well, among individuals���������������������������a code that shall be  not only local but international, world-wide .and  common to all men. Thc code will not be able,  'of course, to disestablish nature. There will always be men physically stronger than other men.  Nor will it be able to subvert the design of thc  Creator in the gifts of superior skill of hand or  brain in some than in others. But the strong  arm shall not awe the weaker, nor tbe cunning  brain exploit its less gifted neighbor. The rich  shall not oppress the poor. It will be a. new world  for men, and, also, it will be a new world for  .women. j  "Upon the crazy^/pendulum of time has woman,  been swung���������������������������now to one extreme and now to thc '  other;   sometime  a   slave   and   wearied   drudge,!  sometime  a  pelted   thing  of  luxury;   her  place  never firmly fixed, her destiny never secure.   But;  for woman as well as lor man, not in vain is the''  world drenched in blood. Beside her mate, slrong, j  respected, loved, bearing her responsibilities as hc  must bear his���������������������������but always by bis side and equal  wilh him, shall be woman."

"Vernon's  SATURDAY, AUGUST 3rd!  Big  Tag   Day   on  COMMUNITY CANNING  The Women's* Inslilulc of Ontario has made  arrangements for several community canning  centres in that province this year. A remarkable  record was. made, lasl year by the Parkhill Canning Centre, for shipments overseas and local  .military hospitals; $4,500 worth of canned goods,  and the Ontario Department of Agriculture has  worked out a concrete plan similar c.to thc onc  tried al Parkhill last year. In each case a committee appointed by thc executive of the local  Women's Institute will bc in charge. The Provincial Government Institute, through thc branch,  will pay for thc equipment, will send a demonstrator to assist in starting the work and will lend  further assistance from time to lime.  Why should wc not havc a community canning  centre here, in each lown in thc Valley? If it  is a good thing in olher piaccs, il is a1 good thing  here, and we Okanagan people want all the good  things that arc going; and il is nobody's fault but  our own if wc do not havc them.  The community canning centre will evolve,  through the growing scarcity of household help  and the need of conservation in food and labor,  into the community kitchen; and when thc community kitchen arrives, then will come the time  of really comfortable, happy, home life. Co-operation is twin-sister to conservation. "All other  work is being unified, grouped and standardized;  why not housework, too?  Licence No. 8-21012.

SOLDIERS' LAND POLICY  Sugeg-stions as to What May Be  Adopted in Canada.  7f  ta.-  soil mr m  Iron  payment QiiptJivery  Willi lhc returned soldiers organized and organizing as Ihcy  arc, wc clo not anticipate lhat  Lhere wilr bc any dillicully in  Canada in arriving at a solution  of thc question of getting lhc  men imon the land on a basis  lhat will give the men every advantage they havc so richly  earned. Nor do wc believe the  civilian, nor thc politician is going to hc permitted to have very  much to say about what the  conditions shall be. We believe  thc returned soldiers know pretty well what they want���������������������������quite  as well as thc average politician  or civilian, and wc believe, further, that thc returned soldiers  arc going to make their wants  known. .  However, here is a plan .which  the .Secretary of the Interior,  Franklin B. Lane, has laid before President Wilson for the  States, which throws light upon  the plan which'will no doubt be  adopted in Canada, when action  is taken. In Sercetary Lane's  letter to the President we read:  "A milion or two dollars, if  appropriated now. Will put this  work well under way..  "This plan does not contemplate anything like charity to  the soklier. He js not to pe  given a boinitv. fie is not to be  made to feci that be is a depend"  ent. On the, contrary, he is to  continue in a "sense in the service of the Government. Instead  of destroying our enemies, be  is to develop our resources.  "The work that is to be done,  other than the planning, should  be done by the soldier himself.  The dam or the irrigation project, should be built by him, lhe  canals, lhc ditches, the breaking  of the land, and lhe building of  thc houses, under proper direction, should bc his occupation.  Hc should bc allowed lo make  his own home, cared for while  hc is doing it. and given an interest in thc land for which he  can pay through a long period  of ycars. ocrhaps thirty or forty  years. This same policy can bc  carried out as to other classes of  land, so that thc soldier on his  return would havc an opportunity to make a home for himself, to build a home with the  money which wc would advance  and which hc would repay, and  for the repayment wc. would  have an  abundant security.  "The farms should not be  turned over as thc prairies were  ���������������������������unbroken, unfenced, without  accomodations, for man or animals. There should be prepared  homes, all of which can be constructed bv thc men themselves  and paid for by them under a  system of simple devising by  which modern methods of finance would be applied to their  ueeds."  after    assume     the    necessary  financing  of   lhc   otherj Allies,  Brilain, which has liberally sup- .,  'ported the other Entente powers]'  since   lhe opening  of   thc  war, '  could look after her own financing.    The shipment of gold to  New York  is  the beginning  of  the   realization   of   this   statement.    In thc depository at Ottawa   there  has  been  accumulated    (including   lhe   $15,000,-  000    above    mentioned)    some  $52,000,000 in gold, and it is'expected  that  much  of  this will  find ils way to New York in the  near future.   The movement is  an indication that for the time  heing at least Great Britain is  ceasing    lo    borrow   from   the  Uniled States and will pay cash  as she goes. An interesting question  is" where docs Britain get  her .'gold?    The fact is that the  British  Empire   controls   some  two-thirds   of   the  world's   annual   output   of    the   precious  metal.    Thc chief producers in  the  Empire   are   South   Africa,  Australia,    India   and -Canada.  South   Africa   alone    produces  $180,000,000 a year. During the  past year some $200,000,000 in  gold0" had   mysteriously   disappeared.     It  had  nol  gonc_ into  lhc reserve in Great Britain to  back up Paper currency, for the  total reserve hardly changed. It  was so'neA'here.in lhc Empire.  The sudden shipment from Ottawa    disclosed    part    of    lhc  secret.   Gold has evidently been  coming   to  Canada  during  lhc  vear  from   both  Australia   and  South Africa.    When  thc war  broke out the financial balance  between thc United Stales-and  Great  Britain  was in   Britain's  favor, and lhc United Stales had  to pay in*1 gold.     Instead of undertaking the risk and cost of  having it sent across the ocean,  Great Britain asked thc Ottawa  Government to act as her agent  and receive  the gold from the  United States into its new secure depository.    Now that thc  financial   positions   of   Britain  and  thc  United  States  are reversed, Canada continues to act  as agent, only this time the gold  is going the other way.���������������������������Canada Weekly.

Are wc everlastingly to be  "weak and unworthv, miserable offenders"?  And if not everlastingly, then how long? Until  wc have "bcen to God?" And who is to say when  that is?

Do you  think God is going lo give His love to anyone who  is ever complaining about his unworlhincss? I  wouldn't; would you?  The man or woman worthy of God's love���������������������������or  tlie love of anyone else, gels if.   And the best evidence, wc can have that a man has "been to God"  we qet not from his words but from his life.   God  docs not want man, "made in His image," lo go  groveling about  like a worm.    That is nol humility.    It is downright shamcfulncss.    Even in  business lhc ordinarv employer does not mind a  mistake now ancl then, but the employee who is  everlastingly making mistakes and then whining-  ly confessing them, is on the greased plank tipped  to Failure.    Confession of guilt is nothing���������������������������repentance is nothing���������������������������if it does not lead a man to  quit the offense.   And what is true in this respect  of business is as  true in matters pertaining  to  man's spiritual condition���������������������������if we must draw any  distinction.    It is psychologically impossible for  an individual to become anything but a "miserable sinner," while he carries that thought in his  mind.    Our thoughts make us.    And when we  -  allow such thoughts as "being good" and "meeting  God"  to control, one is not liable make much  head.

We Avere reminded oi* this changed aspect  of our sternest financial institutions   the  other  day,  when   wc  going in to have  caught oursclf  our bank-book made up for the  third time in thc Aveek. Formerly it has been our custom to  wait until avc got a short and  nasty note from the accountant  asking us to call around and fix  up that overdraft.

This writer advises banking  earjy if onc wihes to Iiua'c a Utile  "visit" before thc busy unsentimental businessman.gels ahout.  But not too early.. One must  give thc girls an opportunity to  exchange their little confidences,  with onc another about thc sort  of time they had the night before, and what Hying camp he is  in, and Iioav many fox-trots shc  had with him and what shc said  to-Art=-when-ApUobjeclGd-to-her-  going around Avilh aviators, and  the othcr vital topics lhat ladies  discuss the morning after. He  says he made lhe mistake onc  morning. A fellow ought to  bank, say about 10 o'clock, but  hc went in lo cash a cheque ten  minutes after the bank opened.  This is Avhal hc found:  "The young ladies were present all right���������������������������the most of them,  avc should judge. But they had  not as yet turned their minds lo  thc business ol' the day. Aboul  a dozen of them avc re gathered  in chalty little groups, from  Avhich strange snatches of con-  A'crsation reached us.  "I think I'd have have frills  on it, my dear," said onc. "You  know those net and muslin frills  arc all thc rage. Gertie Avas over  to Buffalo last week, and she  said that all the girls avc re wear-:  ing them all over."  "Wc perked .up our cars. 'We  will confess lo a certain curios-  it}' as to the nature of the application of the frills. Occasionally  in bashful glances, as avc have  hurried past department-store  AvindoAvs, avc have seen garments of a highly frilly and intimate nature. But even in Buffalo Ihey Avould hardly Avcar  such things all over. We Avere  anxious to know, but another  fairy burst right into the conversation.

And thc  silk clings to thc figure much  better. You don't get that bulki-  ncss around  the waist.'  "Under the circumstances avc  were slrong for silk, and avc  were glad to think that the girls  were taking it up. In fact, wc  found the Avholc conversation  very pleasant and improving.
