But Armstrong sub-  fyscribcd 81-1-1,400���������������������������75 per cent over  the top!  Three crowns were added to the  Honor Flag!  Four hundred  and  fourteen subscribers   bought   bonds,   averaging  nearly $350  each.  Enderby's   quota   was   placed   al  ������������������35,000.    Two hundred and eighty-  four   subscribers   took   $53,650   Ln  |'bonds; a little short of $J90 each.  Two crowns were added to Enderby's Honor Hag.  'i    Mara did   remarkably  veil.    An  II Honor Flag was awarded Uv-it locality when $5,000 was subscribed.  Afteivthe quota was reached further subscriptions amounting in all  the $5,550 were gathered in.  Sicamous surprised everybody.  Thc quota of $7,500 was made for  that section. But the amount of  ������������������13,500 was subscribed; and this  by only 35 people���������������������������nearly $390  apiece.  Three stars went to Sicamous.  MANY MILLS CLOSED  Logging Camps Also Let  Out On Account of Flu  demic  Men  Epi  Throughout the Okanagan Valley  a similar showing was made. A  letter from Mr. W. T. Shatford, district chairman, reads:   -  ''On behalf of thc Provincial Executive Victory Loan 1918, I "desire  lo thank the press of this district  for the intelligent publicity so  freely given.  "The - canvassers should always  be preceded by publicity, but with  inlluenza so widespread all the ordinary channels of publicity were  closed. The press���������������������������the, major cha ir  \-iml���������������������������however,- remained- open,- and  ���������������������������while a greater responsibility was  thrown upon them, they were, not  discouraged, but came through  gloriously, y  - :  "The     magnificent     results    that  '.. Av,ere   achieved   are   almost   solely  due to the press and our' splendid  armv of canvassers.  "What a great record for British  , Columbia.1 Over $35,000,000, or $90  per capita! ,~  f'This district' subscribed, over  '- $1,300,000; also .a magnificent  showing. Wc have therefore every  reason to be proud of the press and  the great work which, in hearty  co-operation with our committees,  ���������������������������they have done." V  Speaking along this line, the Vancouver \Vorld says of the great success of- the campaign throughout  the Province:  "It must stand forever as a proof  of what good organization and,  zealous salesmanship can do. It is  in no way derogatory of these il  we say that it was pre-eminently f  proof of the powcr of newspapei  advertising and publicity. Even  other means of publicity was practically paralyzed. _ Public meeting!  Avere prohibited, parades were cancelled, even open-air gathering?  were discouraged. The pulpits  were unoccupied. Pinners ymd  l^club^gatherings^wcpc���������������������������impossible  All the ordinary methods, outside  of newsnaoers. of informing the  public mind and of Generating en-  ���������������������������lhusiasm' were barred. On top of  jin^e was the depression due lo the  epidemic, and most fatal of all in  the final davs of thc campaign, the  news of peace. *  "ff anv Tinners arc worthy ot'  special mention it is the weekly  ones, whose stall's in many instances were reduced by influenza,  and who gave without -stint often  where thev could ill afford lo do  so. Thc ' cnmoai'.m proved two  things: !l nroved the unselfishness  and'patriotism of the editors, nnd  il demonstrated bo.vond question  lh;il lhere is no combination of-.Adverse circiimslaiiiccs 'which* can'defeat anv worlhv'canmnkm- behind  wliich is ran and intelligent and  adequate advertising."  Mr. J. L. Ruttan returned to Enderby from Alesa Lake the past  week and may spend a portion of  the winter at his homc here. He  reports conditions very bad in the  north lumber camps and mills,owing to thc flu epidemic and the difficulty in getting medical help to the  camps. All the mills and camps  on fhe Grand Trunk from Edmonton to Fort George���������������������������somc 15 in  number���������������������������have becn closed down.  Mr. liullan had lo close his mill  but slill has a number of men logging. These he m'ay,have to let out  as others havc done. The epidemic  played havoc in many of the towns  in thc vicinity of Fort Fraser,  where hundreds havc becn ill and  many have died. All who can be  moved arc sent to Fort George or  Prince Rupert wherc better medical attention can be given.  The fl week    before    Mr.    Ruttan  started for home everybody in the  camp   was   down   except   himself, j  For a day or two he was the only  person' there  who  could   give  the  sick any care, and he only managed  lo pull himself around from shack  to shack giving aid where he could. '  When  things got in this condition Force,  he concluded to close the mill down  and   let  everybody  get  out where  they could get better care.  On the Indian reserve near Fort  Fraser the epidemic is cleaning up  most of the few remaining Indian  families. On one reserve where  there used lo be 250 persons a'year  or two ago, there" were, before 'the  llu got into the camp, some 75  B. C.

Dr. K.C. MacDonald made a trip over the Mabel
lake road a few davs ago. On Ins return he
said he had expected to find a road in bad condition but was agreeably disappointed. People who
complain of this roacUie said, should travel over
some of the Vernon road* if lhcy would know
what bad roads are. Tliis remark rennnds one ot
that liistrionic speech: "Gentlemen, they arc not
roads; thcy arc boulevards." If i ������ tj��������� that

Blackmore, of  Christchurch, New Zealand, gives  the following interesting facts relating to the public nursing scheme  of that Commonwealth:  "The New Zealand hospitals are  built and maintained by taxation.  The people of the district in which  a hospital is situated pay half the  cost of building and maintenance;  the government pays the rest. In  these institutions all nurses are  trained. It is a three-years' course  and at the end a Government examination. If this examination is  passed, the candidate is placed on  the Government register of trj^ined  nurses. _-���������������������������  "The Government, at its own expense, maintains in large and small  centres maternity homes. 'Hie  charges arc very low and in some  cases no fee is asked..These homes  are used as training schools for  maternity nurses. These nurses also  have to pass a Government examination ancl be placed on the.register  before practising. They-arc not  necessarily hospital-trained nurses  though many take the three-years'  course first and then specialize as  maternity nurses.  "By means of trained hospital  nurses and trained maternity  nurses the Government maintains  a district nursing service for outlying sections of the country.-These  nurses are stationed in country  centres and attend settlers, their  wive and families, in their: own  homes for general nursing purposes  or for confinement cases.  "In addition to these country  district nurses there are also town  district nurses who attend the poor  in their own homes without fee.  This town service was until recently k'e'pt up by voluntary subscriptions, but the,Government now subsidizes these organizations.

It is the duty of every hutter maker to comply with the law in this matter. Some hutter  makers have only a cow or two, and make so little  hutter that it does not appear to them that they  can afTord to havc their hutter wraps printed.  They do not like the idea of having 500 or 1000  hutter wraps on hand. To accommodate this*  class of huttcrmakcrs, wc have printed up  a quantity of "Custom" Butter Wraps. Thev are  printed with the words "Fresh Dairy Butter" but  do not hear the name of ^the maker.

It is significant thai in Hirscli's  history of inlluenza all thc epidemics occurring since 1729 are designated by a name composed of two  or morc years connected by a hyphen. For examples, 1729-'30, 1732-  '33. As to the epidemics occurring  in 1729, information at best is only  meagre. This proves that thc epidemic has never died out completely in a few months.  ��������������������������� In the October number of the  American Journal of Public Health,  Dr Darling said that four pandemics  occurred in llie last century: 1830-  '33, 1836-'37, 18J7-M8, ancl 1889-'90.  Pandemics are usually followed for  several years by epidemics or sporadic outbreaks in different, regions,  so that nearly every year there arc  at least a few cases of socalled influenza in any given locality.  A pandemic of disease usually  starts as a more or less severe local  epidemic, morc commonly in the  Orient, ancl gradually spreads from  that centre along the lines of travel  and al about the rate,of travel. The  pandemic of 1889-'90 is believed lo  have' started in thc Far East in llie  spring of 1889. 11 reached Moscow  in September of the samcj.year, Pet-  rogiad in October, Berlin by the  middle of November, London about  a month later, and New,York the  latter part of December. Within a  year the disease had visited ncarly  cvery part of the world.  The present pandemic is believed  to have originated somewhere in  western Asia; others speak of it as  having started in Spain. Keegan  reports that during last summer it  was prevalent in the army camps of  both the Allied and the Central  powers, and as having attacked 30  to 40 per cent of thc people in: Germany, Italy, France, England and  Ireland.  The disease was brought to tbe  eastern United States in August by  patients or carriers from Europe.  It is reported to have attacked as  high as '40 per cent of the men in  some military camps.  . Osier says that with the exception  of dengue there is not a disease .that  indiscriminately attacks so large a  proportion of the inhabitants. The  season of the weather seems to have  little to do in inducing an outbreak  although the greatest outbreaks in  ���������������������������lliis-^co'untr-j���������������������������havc=oc6iii!Fcd=dur-ing-  the winter season, probably due to  the lower resistance of the respiratory passages during this time of  thc year.

For one thing it indicates that no matter how scant  the supply there is always a demand for this highly nutritious  food, when1 fresh and in good condition. If you already have a few  hens and have a supply of eggs you  appreciate their value. If you keep  hens and get a few eggs only when  eggs are cheapest, you may be disgusted with the whole business.
