Thc program will consist chiefly  of a humorous play put oii by a  number of Enderby ladies. This  play was written by Miss |<Jelly  of this city arid promises to give  real enjoyment. At,the beginning of the eA'ening's entertainment will be a. short musical  program . Tlie admission wijj  pe 50 cents.  In vicAv, of the fact that many  cases of Spanish Flu havc de-  vclopcd a I Vernon and of tbe  alarming spread of the disease  in various parts of thc Province  a special meeting of the Enderby School Board Avas called on  Tuesday afternoon to discuss  thc situation. The Board decided lo close tbe schools of the  city in lhc event of any case of  Spanish influenza developing in  tlie school or district.  Thc Secretary reported thai  Mr. R. J. Hogg, Secretary of the  B. C. Schools Association, had  telephoned lhal it might be necessary to postpone the mccling  of the trustees' coiiA'ention oav-  ing to thc spread of Spanish influenza. The Board, however,  decided that the}' would take no  chances in ihe matter and a resolution Avas passed requesting  the B. C. School Trustees Association to postpone their con-  A'cstion until all danger of the  epidemic is past.  A resolution Avas also passecc-  instructing thc secretary to haA'c  notices or cards printed containing simple rules and recommendations for the prevention of the  disease, similar to those distributed amongst the schools of  Vancouver,- and lhat these cards  bc distributed in the schools of  the city.  Thc trustees also request that  all parents keep their children  Avhen out of school at heme as  far as possible, and that thcy  be not alloAvcd to attend picture  shows or any social cr-public  gatherings. The trustees bclicA'e  lhal if.the parents, children and  the public generally co-operate  Avith lhe teachers and the board  of Trustees tliat this dislrict may  escape the ravages of this disease.      - . ,  ANNUAL DONATION DAY      good start in raising this amount    on Donation Day.

Ottawa, tells  us that influenza, wliich is now sweeping over  Canada from one end to the other, is a very old  disease. It was known in ancient times, and as  early as 1510 il over-ran thc whole civilized  world. For centuries it has periodically swept  over various parts of thc world. The last great  world epidemic was in 1889-90 when it was generally known by thc French name of la grippe.  Thc disease has always traveled from east to west.  The symptoms are similar to those of a heavy  cold; more or less severe headache, cold in the  head and throat, fits of sneezing, flushed face,  chills, aches and pains in thc back and limbs,  pains in the eye-balls and behind thc eyes, general  physical depression, and temperature rising to  between 101 and 104 degrees.  As it is such a .very old disease, doctors havc  naturally learned a great deal about its prevention  and treatment. The first principle of prevention  is lo keep away from those infected, and1 thc second, to build up lhc germ-resisting parts of the  body by eating nourishing foods, dressing comfortably, gelling lots of sleep, and by living in lhc  open air and in bright, well-venlilated rcfoms as  much as possible. Thc mouth.throat and nose  should be systematically and frequently disinfected by antiseptic inhalations,- sprays and  washes. Such preparations as chlorclonc and lis-  terinc arc well adapted for this purpose.        *   v  "In fighting previous epidemics, doctors found  quinine a useful preventative.

Quinine-is also given internally  as a preventative with success. In one of the more  recent outbreaks in������������������Europc, an experiment was  tried in,which the men of onc squadron of a regiment of cava by were each given iy<������������������ grains of  quinine in y������������������ ounce of whiskey daily for twenty-  two days, while those of the othcr, squadrons  were given none. The latter squadrons had from  twenty-two to forty-four casesiCach of influenza,  while the squadron treated with quinine developed only four cases. Inhalations of oil of eucalyptus, thymol, oil of mountain pine and the like  arc also valuable as preventatives.  When a person is struck hy influenza, only onc  course lies open. That is to go to bed without the  least possible delay, and call a doctor. Rest,  warmth and quiet arc three sovereign remedies  of the primary disease, and. the best preventative  of its morc deadly complications, of which pneumonia is the most frequent.

Is it not simply  because of a wise, broad recognition on tlie part of the employers of the fact that the well-  being and contentment of their  men means success and profit  to thc factory.   ..  The men on their part appreciate being taken into a co-operative partnership with the  firm. They work under0 most  satisfactory conditions and participate in the success of the  business. Thcy reciprocate  whole-heartedly. It is a mutual  commonsense arrangement that  produces thc most wholesome  results.  And it should bc the same in  thc community. Jealousies  should bc thrown aside; passive interest;should be stimulated  into vigorous action; people  should get acquainted with  their neighbors and with newcomers; loyalty to the mutual  interests involved should be the  motto of everyone; progressive  co-operation should take the  place of kicking and grumbling.

If I pay $1,000 for a Victory Bond is there any chance  of my being able to sell it at a  profit? '���������������������������"  A. A very good chance. Most  financiers believe that Victory  Bonds will advance after the  war.     ������������������  Q. Why do they think so?  A. Because the demand for  money will not bc as great and  urgent as it is now and interest  rates will likely be lower.  Q. You mean a free-from-in-  cqme-tax 5% per cent bond will  be morc popular than ever?  A. Exactly, and most likely so  popular that people will be willing to pay morc than $1,000 for  a $1,000 bond, and, similarly,  more lhan .$100 for a $100 bond  cause of being specially finished  on milk, brought good returns  and paid well for extra feed.  Four different lots marketed in  August, 152 birds, weighed 280  pounds; they were fed for about  ten days during which time they  gained sixty pounds, weighing  at the end of the feeding period  340 pounds. They consumed  180 pounds of mash and 24 gallons of buttermilk. The mash  was composed of 2 parts corn  meal, 1 part middlings, and 1  part buckwheat screenings.  The cost of feed was 1801b at  4c per lb���������������������������$7.80, 24 gal. milk @  5c per gal.���������������������������$1.20, making a total of $8.40 for feed and milk.  Add to this the value of birds  at the start, 2801b of thin chickens that would bring 35c per lb  $98.00, and it makes a total cost  for thin chickens aLnd feed of-  $116.40.  The weight of the finished  chickens was 3401b, having  gained 601b in the ten days' feeding. The value per lb was increased because of tlie quality of  the flesh to 50c per tb, making  thc total value of the birds  $170.00.  This meant a revenue of $54  for the care of 152 birds for less  than two weeks. It uUo showed  that for every pound of increase  on the binds it took 311) of mash  and 4tb of milk or an average  cost of 14c per lb of grain.  Complete Change Favored  The Methodist Church of Canada stands committed to a complete change in the economic  and industrial system of the  country', a veritable social revolution. It recently adopted the  report of the committee of tlie  church in relation to war and  patriotism, which expressed the  following conclusions as a result of the analysis of the present industrial situation:  "Tliat the present economic  system is revealed as one of the  roots of the war.    The insane  f>ride pf Germany, her passion  or world domination, found' an  occasion in the demand for colonics as markets and sources of  raw materials. Thc war has  made more clearly manifest the  perils inherent in thc system of  production    for   profits. .    Thc  Q.

As the last century  had democratized politics, the  present century has shown that  political "democracy means little  without   economic democracy.

I     Tlie,. object in  presenting thc  ' pamphlet? to   the  consumers  of  Canada at this time is to arouse  , in their minds thc great necessity of not only conserving food  :for thc Allies in their great war  ���������������������������for liberty, bul also to emphasize thc great value of lhc apple  las an article of food. Those who  iinake a liberal use" of apples will  \serve thc dual purpose of saving for shipment overseas such _  j articles  of  food  as  are Ut for  i that purpose,  and at the same  . lime furnish a useful and valu-.  jablc food for the household.  t    Too many people have never  1 learned    tiie'   art   of    economy  when the time came for stock-  ling up articles of food for thc  J long winter months, and instead  I of storing iri their cellars from  one  to  half  a  dozen boxes  or  barrels   of  apples   in   the   fall.  they have  depended ��������������������������� in  b living  in   small  measures  from ' their  j grocerf  j Tlie apple without question  jis thc king of fruits; whether  fresh. dried, - evaporated or  canned, it is a wholesome food,  easily prepared, attractive and  palatable at all times.  Apples vary in flavor and texture. They are often marketed  before thcy are mature, and the  cooking and keeping qualities  are thus injured: None of the  soft, insipid apples are suitable  for preserving. Tlie sound, tart  apples arc best for this purpose.  Apples are at their best in the  fall and early winter, and spice  need not bc added. as_ their fla-  ^r'~canh"ot^b^mT]7rovedJ  SPECIAL  Brown Turkish Towels :'lSx32: extra value;  just now only two dozen pair, at  . .
