Announced.  ll"' Two peace celebrations in one  week is more than most of us have I  [m, been    accustomed    to  in  the  past  *u few years. When the premature  report came through that the armistice had been sigried by the Germans,   Armstrong  went  wild   with  ^  joy.    Enderby likewise started** immediately to   prepare   to celebrate.  Huge  bonfires  were built  at  both  towns, and   last   Thursday evening  was a lively one.      All afternoon  Hags were flying, whistles blowing,'  church bells ringing, and fireworks,  roaring.    In thc evening the Armstrong band enlivened thc occasion  ���������������������������with  selections  in   the  vicinity of.  the bonfire.    Here,  also,  Rev.  Mr. j  ��������������������������� >   Stott addressed the crowd gathered,'  '��������������������������� in-the town square. Mayor Wright,  also announced that a union service.  of thanksgiving .would be held in  the Avalon Theatre as soon as the  influenza restrictions are removed,  and public gatherings are once  again permitted.  In his remarks, Mr. Stott referred  to the unofficial nature of the report from Paris, but well said that  there   was   ample   grounds   for   a  1/ demonstration of this nature in the  Armstrong's Victory Loan Canvassing Committee Sure to  Go "Over the Top" foii Crown  1*  ,m.i^  ���������������������������m n'  Armstrong's latest Victory  Loan figures are $111,250.

This, he  said, was the beginning of thc end,'  even if thc end were delayed a  |J i'ew days. He gave a glowimg summary of the feats of daring and tbe  deeds of sacrifice by the men  fighting in the Allied armies, and  paid a, loving tribute to the brave  boys who had gone from Canadian  homes���������������������������and .^Armstrong homes���������������������������to  light in humanity's cause.  The demonstration was spontaneous. -' It was noisy. It was genuine. It struck home. And, even if  it was a day or two'premature, as  subsequent      events      proved,      it  ^'-tasted as good as-thai of'Monday. ���������������������������':  .���������������������������  The Enderby celebration proved  ; tx good rehearsal for thc main event  staged for Monday night. It was  the noisiest demonstration that ever  happened in ; Enderby. Though  hurriedly "gotten   up   it    failed   in  '   nothing.    Jn fact, all the fireworks  / gettable were used in the rehearsal,  and the later celebration took a  more   serious   turn,^  though   each  '   seemed to come as genuinely from  } the hearts of all and apparently  Avas needed to let oflF the pent-lip  joy of the people.  Jftevs. Mr. Gretton and Mr. Pow,  Jtyr. Skaling, >fr. Craig and Mr.  "Welsh were calje<| upon to speak,  with Mr. .Winter acting as "master  of ceremonies.-  Monday afternoon Armstrong got  up a parade, afterwards listening  to an eloquent address Jiy Mr. Patrick, of Victoria, who rehearsed the  ���������������������������events of the past four years and  paid tribute to the men at the front,  the women behind the lines and in  , the munition factories arid in the  fields, and the noble work of the  , women at home, in the Red Cross  ' and kindred organizations.

Following lhc nalional invocation, read hy P,ev. Mr. Dow,  ' "O Canada-' was sung. Mayor Coltart was called upon and responded  in well-chosen words, conveying a  message for the Future and urging  Ihe  serious   thought  of  all   on   the  , great  problems  arising  out  of  the  ' Avar and which are demanding settlement.  J Be v. Mr. Gretton gave one of the  ���������������������������most-eloquent addresses ever heard  In Endcrhy on the man side of the  Avar and New Day problems. Miss  Seymour followed, paying tribute  to the work of women in the war  and in the industrial and agricultural life of the Empire. She  pointed to the many problems that  -women will be called upon lo  study and in conjunction with men  solve, particularly in connection  with  the  returning of the  men   t;������������������  |, the industrial life they left, there to  find their places occupied by  women.      .-,       ^  D.

But double your quota and it means  crowns.  four  Friday evening at the request of  Acting-Mayor Coltart to decide  what should be done in the matter  of a public tie shed. There was no  question as to the shed���������������������������everybody  was in favor of that. The question  of where the shed is to be placed  caused some discussion.  Mr. Coltart explained that the  city h/ul becn o'fercd two lo������������������s on  Mill street between George and Belvedere at a very low figure, and  the Okanagan Sawmills had offered  to donate ������������������200 worth of lumber for  the shed.  Mr. Craig, on behalf of the Okanagan Sawmills, explained that this  offer was based on the production  cost of the lumber, not .the retail  price. In appreciation of this generous offer. Mayor Coltart's expression of thanks on behalf of the  citizens was warmly applauded.  A motion was carried unanimously endorsing the proposed purchase  of the lots offered and urging the  city council to proceed with the  erection" of the tic shed.  . A motion also carried urging the  city" to proceed in the matter of  renting a room with the necesasrv  accessories for a rest room, if the  cost 'is not too great.  An   expression   of   the   citizens'  wish in- these matters having been  given, -Acting-Mayor  Coltart  called  attention  to the need of the community   for   more   such   meetings.  There is^much, he said, that could  be  accomplished  of benefit to  the  town and district'if we co-operate  and hang- together in getting them.  The town and district, should combine their efforts in order to have  the work that is^our due done on  ;.  the,..roads, and-.bridges ofi this' dis-  l-trict.    He, did not consider the district was "getting -a_nything'":likG*"i'|.s*  share of provincial appropriations  for roads and bridges in the Okanagan.- Enderby has: unorganized ter>  ritory right lip to her doors on all  sfdesV-territory from which all fhe  taxes go to the" Provincial Government,'yet  every  year  we  see  the  government spend more money on  the   trunk   roads - running- through  organized   territory   than   on   the  trunk  roads  running, through  our  unorganized territory.    -  .    -  >   ���������������������������  The same conditions prevail in  our bridge wbrH���������������������������or lack of bridge  work.   Two years ago the assistant  road   engineer ' promised ��������������������������� a   new  bridge would be built that season at  Jpnderby-    Tbat  season   and   now  another sea-son passed and the o|c|  bridge stands, a menace .to traffic.  The  same  complaint  comes 'from  the people in connection with the  bridge at Fortune's Crossing.    He  understood   the   timber   for. both  these bridges.was on  the ground,  awaiting work jo begin.. That fo^  the  Enderby  bridge  had  been   on  hand so long most of it was decaying and would not be fit to use. He  thought  a  petition  should  be__for-  wardetrto~tKc^epn'rlmcnfoT worlts"  insisting on these bridges being put  in a safe condition.  Othcr speakers followed, speaking in the same strain and voicing  the deep feeling of protest in the  heart of all on account of the expensive but ineffective road  build-  tee was held in the City Hall on  Tuesday evening to unfurl the  Honor Flag, won for the district  having reached its quota and  gone "over thc top." A number  of citizens gathered to hear thcV  good news, and greeted the unfurling with hearty applause.  Each part of thc district came  up well. Grindrod, Deep Creek,  North Endcrhy and Mabel Lake  Valley���������������������������none fell behind what  was expected of it. A-great deal  of credit is due tlie canvassers,  who have been on the job at all  times, and covered the field  thoroughly.  Up to Wednesday evening the  amount subscribed by Enderby  district was $41,100; by Sicamous, $3,950; by Mara, $4,250.  Mr. Craig received word from  Mr. A. R. Rogers Wednesday  morning advising him to take  out $2,500 in bonds. This, was  added to the amount then oa  record, and brought thc total to  $41,100.

For the fiscal year ending March 31st, 1918, Canada sold on  credit to Great Britain and the Allies more than $46,000,000 worth  ci metals, the greater part of w0hich were produced from the  mines of British Columbia.      That was more than three times the  , *-  average  exports for the three preceding- years.  \  The Victory  Loan* 1917  made this  production possible because it enabled  Canada to give credit to Great Britain  ^and the allies for their metal purchases  in this country.  Without this market the mines and  smelters of British Columbia could not  have sold their outputs. ,  JBut the mines have had a market  for their ores. The smelters have  turned out tremendous quantities of  copper, lead and zinc.  This production has not only?  hrought prosperous, times to the miners  but it has becn a mighty factor in help- .  ing to win the war,  for these  metals  were absolutely necessary to the production of munitions in both Canada  - ��������������������������� "-   .  -.-. . ������������������  and Europe. . v ���������������������������  , The Victory  Loan  1918 will keep  the good work  going.

The reason for this regulation of      '   .  'the Paper Controller is that it is the  practice of somc publishers to.send  thier     newspaper     until     ordered  stopped,    and    this    practice    frequently  means  a  failure  to  collect  anything   for   subscriptions! in   arrears, in- which case there is-a vir- . .       &,  lual  waste of paper.

He argues  thus:  "While the urban population of  the Province is thinking of its re-  crea'lion why, not the. '..rural section? Play is now recognized as  an important feature of human life  ���������������������������at least it is so recognized/in the  city life. Social"'workers J and civic  reJformers have paved the way for  the .movement until now everyone  in the city has .been educated up to  the half holiday idea.  "Unfortunately the effect of this  later day gospel has  not heen  generally   felt  in   the   rural   communities.     The,   average   farmer   would  'take a fit' if it wee suggested that  he and his family were to have a  regular day in the week on which  all would 'knock off' wobJc for half  of   the  day.    And   yet   the   farmer  works as hardif not harder tlian;  the; city man.    He is getting richer j  faster   than   hiJs   city   brother   but,  thinks he must work a good  deal:  harder-   Then he wondvrs why his'  boys will not stay on the farm.  ***Not for a moment does th������������������ farmer relax. Harvest time, of course,  obviates the half holiday in that  period. Harvest time to,the farmer  is what n panic is to the stock  broker with this difference, Afte^  the panic is over in {he sloek ma'iv  ket the" brokftV hies away to the  cVaslc!e for rest and recuperation.

B/ and by  the terrible monotony of the daily  grind gels on the nerves of,the farmer's boy and he eagerly waits for  the time when he cau escape to the  city. -  Why cannot rural British Columbia inaugurate a half holiday?  Time was when the farmer was up  before daylight and toiled till aftei  sundown. Some yet, but many are  learning more about the pleasure  of living. Perhaps in time we shall  have a rural half holiday for the  greater part of the year, making allowances for the extra rush at  harvest time."  ���������������������������Sfc ���������������������������$& *^sk *v\ ���������������������������$& ^sv ^\ <$&. -^ ^\  '$&������������������������������������������������������ Victory Bonds are exempt ^  ^fc from federal taxation, and' ^  T3K   bear 5y2% interest -^  V '    ' -   la  sk*-*-m ^\ ���������������������������$& ^ -^a, -^ .*m ^tu  ���������������������������^  C.

"And now, gentlemen of the jury,  considerable sum Canadian publishers must recover from their  customers, their readers and advertisers.  In   connection   with   the   earlier  increases  the  readers  of  many  of,  thc   daily   newspapers   havc   been,  required   lo  pay a dollar or  more,  per    year    for    their    newspapers,1  while    the   subscription    price   of,  very many weekly newspapers has  been   increased   from   50  to   100%.  In    many   cases   still    further   increases will be necessary.  But all the three million dollars  iincreasc costs cannot be loaded on  readers; some of this sum must  come from advertisers���������������������������this in*the  form' of increased advertising ratesj  Advertising rates in Canada are,  generally speaking, much lower per  thousand of circulation than in the  United States. Speaking on this  point the editor of "Marketing," a  Canadian advertisers' newspaper  published in Toronto, says in his  last issue: "In meeting the Canadian publishers' calls'for higher  rates advertising buyers should not  fail to recognize that for years they  have benefitted by lhe publisher's  much-vaunted un(lervaluation of his space, and  should be thc more willing on that  account to recognize the present  necessities."

The pominion law against the selling of  butter without the words "Pairy Putter" or  "Creamery Putter"���������������������������as the case may be���������������������������printed  on the butter wrap, is a blessing in disguise to the  average farmer.  Jt is the duty of every butter maker to comply with the Jaw in this matter. Some butter  makers havc only a cow or two, and make so little  butter tliat it docs not appear to them that they  can afford to havc their butter wraps printed.  They do not like the idea of having 500 or 1000  butter wraps on hand. To accommodate this  class of 'bultcrmakcrs, we have printed up  a quantity of "Custom" Butter Wraps. Thcy are  printed with thc words "Fresh Dairy Butter" but  do not bear thc name of thc maker. However,  these wrappers fill the requirements of the law  governing this .point, and can he bouglit in small  quantities at the rate of G5c a hundred in 100 or  50 lots. If you do not require bulterwfaps'in  larger lots, take, these .wraps in lesser quantities.  500, Single Order,  1000   V  ������������������  $3.75  4.75  When   run     with    other orders, $3.50  and  $4.50  THE WALKER PRESS  Enderby, B.C.
