['���������������������������All enjoyed thc array of fruits,  vegetables and field grains; the  poultry, cattle, horses, sheep  and hogs.  It would not bc fair to com  \l pare  tion of pre-war days. Every  division showed thc results of  lack of labor on the farms, and  in the fancy work and home  department there was an unmistakable falling olf in thc  number of exhibits, showing  that the womenfolk, too, arc  otherwise employed in the war  work of thc community. Yet,  acknowledging this, thc exhibit  as a whole, was onc of thc most  creditable-  In the fruit division, particularly con the plate tables, there  was a splendid showing of apples, pears, and plums, both as  to size and color.  It was in field truck lhat the  exhibition excelled. Here thc  long tables were loaded with  every variety of vegetables of  excellent quality.

It has  taken the great financial stress of the war to bring  it out.   The Telegraph says: j  "The  importance  of maintaining   the  present  supply of gold is not a question which merely,  affects a few producers in diffcrcri't parts of the-  Friday and Saturday  Specials  ," r ;,  Orders will be accepted up to Monday for any bf the  following Mail Order Specials  Please note  all Dry Goods  GOODS PREPAID  prepay delivery  on  that we*  Parcels.

Just now the local telephone  company operating in the Okanagan is being accused of all kinds of bad things because it is putting into effect a regulation lhat has been in operation in all cities almost since we havc had  voice transmission, but has not bcen imposed in  this and neighboring towns. A feeof 5c oils charged up against thc telephone from which  a call is made bv a non-subscriber. Heretofore  we have felt quite free to allow any friend or  patron to.use our phone free of cost. Thus hundreds of calls have been made daily by non-subscribers and they havc been given voice transmissions free of cost. Now that a nominal charge  is made on these calls by non-subscribers, objection is taken bv manv people of really good intentions. But is'it just? Wc forget that the telephone company is selling voice transmission. We  pay thc company for transmitting our voice over  thc wire. We pay a railwav company for, transporting our person over thc railroad. For instance, it would cost us, well at thc least calculation, $20. and the loss of the better part of two  davs, to make tlie trip to Penticton in person  sponsible for the increase in prices; it is sufficient,  lo observe lhal including Bank of England notes (  wc havc now ������������������.310,000,000 of currency in circula-,  lion, against about ������������������150,000,000 before thc war,]  and that the purchasing powcr of this currency,  in commodities is generally agreed lo havc fallen ]  from 40 lo 50 per cent.

B.C  In a pass in the rocky mountain side  Some men are working, like bees in a hive;  Canuck railway iroops.. wilh shovel and pick,  You scarcely see ihem, they move so quick.  A Fourth Battalion brave company's task  Bail  from rock to sever;  A Fourth Battalion, brave company's task  "The Maple Leaf Forever."  Now these railway men, arrived saTe in France,  Led the German pigs a most lively dance.  Coming o'er a hill, soon they .saw some Huns  Who said "You will see, all these mothers' sons  Will drop their tools and run for their guns."  But the men at work, when they saw the Huns,  ���������������������������Went at* the double, without any guns.  A pick crr.vshed into a big German's head,  And the shovels made a big heap of dead.  The Huns a machine gun brought at full speed;  This they were quite sure, would do the deed;  j At work in tlie rear, their mutes heard the nise, (noise)  With a mighty big cheer, they went up the rise.  A man and lorry now came into sight,  And thought that lie, too, would help in the light;  And the echoes ring as they loudly sing  And made, pretty soon, almost dreadful smash.  Oil, they wildly fought! and old Canada won,  And  routed, quite, the astonished Hun.  Then back to camp they wearily went,  And proudly they told of thc great event.  A few got astray, after the light;  And  so lost their way full many a-night.  Bul safe back al last, Ihey smile with delight,  r.   As the tale is  lold of their gallant fight.  When tales of this war are written ancl told,  And routed the Huns with pick and shovel.  Surelv some one will this yarn unfold;  turc economies.  If thcrc is anything wrong with your commimily, start in right now to find out just where thc  fault lies and then give your fellow citizens the  best that is in you fo assist in. correcting thc deficiency^.    Thcrc is not much wrong with* a community where ils citizens  arc loyal in  a  unanimous degree lo die interests of thc community.  In the first place, then, sec lhat you arc loyal.  Don't grouse and grumble about the olher fellow.!  Get your own house in order, and then proceed to !  do a little diplomatic missionary work in leading  your erring neighbor to the light of community j  expansion and progress.    Sometimes* wc wonder j  howJ.it is that .a neighboring town always seems j  to "get there" although it hasn't half the natural j  advantages of our own town. Any town that gets j  there has the "get there" spirit.    If your town is  courageous, ambitious and loyal it possesses the  essentials that nothing can daunt.  But don't figure you can be''disloyal or halfhearted toward thc-mainspring of your town���������������������������-its  business institutions���������������������������and still retain the spirit  that wins. That's as impossible as an elephant  getting religion : Never forget what you owe to  your comiminity. If we all keep that strictly in  mind it will never come that we'll have to worry'  about "what the community owes us." <  When North Dakota was being settled up by  farmers, great assistance was given the new settlers by the retail traders of the towns that sprung  up. The farmers were hclpd over the rough  piaccs���������������������������their credit was always good with the  merchants in a bad year or times of hardship.  Soon, however, alter thc territory proved its farming worth, thc farmers forgot all about the local dealers who had bcen their main standby,  and started sending their cash oil' lo somc big  catalogue stores that sprung up in cities in othcr  states. Whal is lhc result today? Norlh Dakota  has thc poorest assortment of towns of any slat?,  in thc union. Farm land's arc not worlh a quarter a.s much as they arc in other slates that keep  lhc fires of community patriotism burning brightly.   Heed the lesson f  Wc can't pay our taxes.

O  AN OUNCE OF PREVENTION  Thc city of Chicago has outlined a scheme for  spending several million dollars in a Citv Planning enterprise to be started immediately after  the war. Had Chicago barkened years ago to  the warnings of then-styled "cranks" on city planning, the citv, it is now computed, would have  saved to its taxpayers many-millions.  This is-likewise the story of hundreds of other  cities on the American continent. Heedless of  basic principles, regardless of ultimate results,  the people of many of our greatest municipal corporations arc now paying for their laxity in sums  lhat are fabulous, and that will create great debenture deb lis for lhc succeeding generations lo  discharge. Thc Irulh and forcc of thc old adage  about "an ounce of prevention" came loo laic for  these piaccs.

Similar gentry now living in  thc United States havc. 1.240,200 acres more. Over  11,000,000 acres are in the hands of the Hudson's  Bay Company and other corporations. Going a  little further, the minister might have revealed  the fact lhat within ten miles of the railways now  operating on the prairies there are 12,710,039  acres oT alienated lands; with in fifteen miles,  15,296,4(54 acres; within twenty miles, 16,893,981  acres. The most lamentable part is that, even  after paying little or nothing for this land, the  gamblers are largely exempt from taxation.  Man's hair is not naturally short any more than'  a woman's.

Most of all, however, and hest of all, let us rejoice that in the  new world in which we are to live, religion, apove all things  else, will come to its own.  In the wars of the past, religion has heen tlie greatest sufferer, in this war it has made greater progress than it has made  in any thousand years of peace.  A new world without religion would be worse than the world  has ever been in the past. The people who lived in it would  4ive in moral death. There could be no real joy in it though its  streets were paved with gold. For, when you take God out of  a man's heart, you take the throb out of it and its faculty to be  glad. Search the highways of the ages and you will find that  they who were lonely there, and hopeless,- were those without  religion.
