Pte.  IVfcMahon was three times sent  to the hospital with wounds,  spending many months at different times under surgical  care.' He now looks sturdy and  fit for any ordeal. He says is  was not the dangers of the field  and trench warfare that "got"  him so much as it was the climate. As soon as hc landed on  Canadian soil he felt a relief  not experienced at any time in  France or in England. Both  Lieut. Robinson and Pte. McMahon will report at military  headquarters at the coast after  spending Christmas at homc.  Geo. Andrews Made Lieutenant  Word has been received in  Armstrong that George B. Andrews, who left as a private in  the 54th Batt., has received his  commission as lieutenant. He  spent two years in the trenches  and has been-through-many of  the biggest battles of .the'.--war.  He was decorated with the military niedal for conspicuous  bravery on the field. Lieut. Andrews is now at Whitley Camp,  England, but does not know  when he will return to Canada.  'Armstrong hancj.

It com hi nos  usefulness in a gift, and shuts  the onc to whom it is given on  the road to Thriftville. Tho  savings stumps arc a good investment, drawing 4y2% interest compounded half-yearly.

The first  cellar they went into was filled  by French women, -who, when  they discovered they were Canadian soldiers and friends, ran  to them and threw.'..-their arms  about them, smothering them  with kisses.

In wishing you the compliments of the season we  thank you for your patronage during 1918 and solicit a  continuation during 1919.  We'd like to know definitely whose responsibility is greatest���������������������������that of the home merchant to  thc community or that of thc community to the  home merchant.     Certainly each is responsible  to the other if all are to progress.    The home  merchant is as necessary to the life of  a community as the community is to the success of the  home merchant.    Without one the other could  not exist.   And where one fails to make good the  other suffers in direct ratio to the other's failure.  It is the duty of the home merchant to adver-  ties and boost his business and everything that  is of interest to 'the community in order hold the  interest and the business at home. Any merchant  failing  to  do   this  shirks   the responsibility  he  owes  to  the home community,  and places  the  load of holding business in the home community  more   heavily   upon   the   shoulders    of    others  Tn short hc is shirking his responsibility to the  community and his fellow merchants.  On the othcr hand, thc people of thc community owe it to themselves and the home merchant lo patronize thc local stores that advertise  and boost the lown and its interests.,. This part  of the unwritten law of community building is  invariably carried out.c-We havc yet'to sec thc  merchant who did nol gel lhc business of the  people of his community who was wide awake  enough lo get after it. Thc merchant who docs  nol reach oul aflcr business will soon havc nothing left to reach out aflcr. In effect, hc indicates  lhat hc docs not want business, and business will  nol go where it is not invited.  Looking over our Okanagan exchanges it is  very apparent why somc towns arc forging ahead  while others arc standing still. Thc best indication is lo be found in the columns of thc local  papers. Where these columns are. liberally  made use of by thc home merchants the towns  are moving ahead steadily; business is retained  in the homc town, and thc dollars kept al home  circulate morc freely, which means that a beneficial reciprocity exists to thc good of all. fn  othcr towns where there is not tliis progressive  spirit in evidence in the columns of the local  paper on the part of tlie home merchants, there  is no mistaking the signs of lack of business, lack  of development, lack of progress. Tjius, you  will agree, we feel sure, that the first responsibility for the home community's advancement  lests primarily upon the shoulders of .the home  merchants, and if anyone of them plays \the part  of thc slacker the community: suffers."     'V  better than if you had selected it yourself.  The jewelry store of J. C. Adams has been the  great attraction for all those whose idea of a suitable-Christmas gift runs to a finger ring, a necklace, brooch, watch, or something for the table  or boudoir in silver, gold, ivory, or plateware.  While illness interfered with the plans of the  Star Bakery for Christmas, they did1 a big business in fruit cakes, fancy baking, candies, nuts,  etc. Any housewife who had been unable to prepare her own fancy cooking was able to find  the very best at the Star. ;���������������������������  The way those turkeys disappeared! Fred  Murray's butcher shop did not look like hard  times when his sliipment of Christmas turkeys  arrived. And tlie way those turkeys disappeared  was indicative of the character of Armstrong's  peace Christinas.  Mrs. Bray's contribution to thc millinery and  fancy articles of apparel for the ladies and children was much appreciated. She had in stock  just thc articles needed for useful Christmas  gifts.  Mr. Best had the misfortune of a visit from flu  Christmas week, which entirely threw out his  business plans. He did, however, provide a large  slock of goods from Toyland, and these made  the litllcfolk happy.  Armslrong was a busy place thc past week���������������������������  Christmas shoppers from all parts of the districl.

It is easy to see from the columns of Tlie Commoner where the business of the district is going,  and really should go. And these merchants hack  up their advertising with the goods and service.  Thcy play the game���������������������������do not shirk the responsibility to the home community of doing their part  to keep the home business at home.  Armstrong citizens must feel proud of the  attitude of her merchants in the matter of hopst-  ing business in the district. And-Hot only are they  boosting, but they hack up their hoosts with the  stock.  Here is a summary of what you will have seen  if you were a visitor to the stores the past few-  weeks: At Foreman & Armstrong's big store, a  galaxy of gifts that please; useful gifts and those  from Toyland. Every woman Jijces dainty under-  hiusliris, ami-those attractive froclcs, youtliful7  clue and practical. Their display was distinctive  and the quality of the goods the hest. In the grocery department thcrc was an abundance of all  the toothsome dainties which the heart longs for  even if thc stomach docs havc to suffer at Xmas  lime.  Thc popular idea of a Christmas gift is something morc ornamental than useful, hence when  looking for gifts one docs not always turn lo the  hardware slore lo find it. However, this Xmas  seems lo have heen an exception. Morc gifts of  the useful type havc been purchased. And here  is where the hardware stocks of MacPhail-Smith  and MacLauchlan met the requirements of many.  They did not seem lo forget any of thc articles  required, and buyers from all over the dislrict  came   to   Armslrong  for   these  hardware   gifts.  "Joys from Toyland" were to be' found at  Abboll's drug store. Christmas- week has been a  big week for lhis store. Everything from thc  most amusing oddities to .the 'more . practical  mechanical" toys were in slock, and the way lhcy  did go! Then, of course, there were the delightful gift books, perfumes, fancy boxes for the  toilet, cut glass, etc.  Tn men's wear���������������������������fancy articles for gifts���������������������������A. D.  Renault was well supplied. Mr. Renault has the  faculty for selection which is so valuable to a  merchant in this line. Tic has been able to meet  all requirements of the menfolk���������������������������or rather, thc  womenfolk for thc menfolk���������������������������for you know the  The mission.of The Commoner is, first, to Jcecp  all home business in the home town. But, particularly now when stocks are low, the,home merchant frequently cannot supply the requirements  of customers. Then, instead of sending money  out of the Valley, we helieve in Keeping it as near  home as possible and, therefore;, we are pleased  to note how effectually the Hudson Pay, Vernon,  is overcoming tlie eastern mail order menace.  The Christmas trade of the 3ay this season is  far in excess^ of other years, particularly from  VSJlleytbwns". TJTisireasily accounted^oFwjien  it is remembered that many of the small town  merchants have preferred not lo load up on  goods of special lines. Tlie Bay's Christmas display of gift goods this season surpassed any yet  attempted even by that establishment.  The purpose of C. J. Whiten the jeweler, is on  similar lines. He advertises to meet any catalogue jewelry price submitted to him���������������������������and he  makes good his promise, llie way lhis firm has  grown within thc past few years indicates that  thc buying public appreciates what hc is doing.  ABSOLUTE CURE FOR PNEUMONIA  has been  A remedy for pneumonia has been sent out  from the oflice of lhe surgeon-general of the  United Stales at Washington, which is said generally by lhc Government lo be an absolute cure.  The formula has been sent to all hospitals, military camps and to all government offices. Here  is what thc government advised:  Saturate a ball of cotton as large as a one  inch marble with spirits of alcohol, three drops  of chloroform to each ball of cotton.

It would seem there are two distinct heads to  1he news service eminaling from London government circles���������������������������as Wells would say, "Inner Britain" and "Greater Brilain." Today thc news  comes from one source, tomorro\vtf*i'roni the  other. It would seem that Sir Robert Borden and  his colleagues, Sir George Foster, Hon. A. L.  Sifton and Hon. C. J. Dohcrty, arc associated  with thc "Greater Britain" wing. By and through  thc aid of this wing, Sir Robert expects to get a  seat at thc peace tabic.  Under dale of Dec. 18th a London cable to thc  Vancouver Province said: "It is inadmissible for  Premier Borden himself or his colleagues Lo issue  a public pronouncement at this early stage of  these most delicate international negotiations,  hut careful enquiries from the mosl authoritative  <juarters enable mc to make thc following statement: It is quite certain Borden will, himself,  attend thc peace conference. Nothing less will  satisfy Canada or the British Government. The  British people, in lhc recent ejection campaign,  have shown both,-, their deep appreciation pj.' tJic  services in the war of Cc'IJHKla and the other Dominions, and their enthusiastic determination to  support the statesmen of thc whole Empire in  .giving reality and permanence to a new and fully  autonomous partnership between the nations of  the British Commonwealth which shall he the  equal of our comradeship in thc field."  This statement seems to be purposely ambiguous, but it is sufficiently clear to let British  officialdom understand Canada's wishes.    It appears necessary for these heads to talk to one another across the water and back again.   It is the  regularly dpilomatic to say a thing in a round-  the-world way so as to declare it was never said,  or never intended, if occasion^ requires^   Nevertheless the meaning is clear.   iOn Dec. 19th the  following cable, possibly a tentative reply to the  "feeler" of the 18th conies across the water: "No  decision has yet been reached as to the number  of delegates which will represent each country at  the peace conference, the arrival of the 3ritish  delegates being awaited.   The claims of the British colonies to participate in the congress are  qreceiving serious   consideration.     At the same  time, it is feared that unless some limitation is  placed on the number of delegates, the conference will become too large to accomplish results.  It is understood tlie British Government proposes  to have five delegates at the peace table and that  the United States will have three representatives.  Thc next issue of The Commoner will find us  in the year 1919. Wc arc growing older. That  3s thc first thought that confronts us. We ought to  Jbe growing wiser. Wc hope we arc. The  question is debatable. However, we're here, in  one of the finest spots in Canada, and we intend  to make 1919 thc banner year of our existence.  To do so wc must do our part to make it thc  'Jbanncr year for. tlie district. If all will lend a  "liaiK irwe' 1 iTirixnxTttcFlott ,=w 1 leiflJ9T9=is"s trunjg  on thc necklace of Father Time.  capital of 12 per cent per annum, besides placing  large sums aside for depreciation and reserve  funds, is itself a subject for profound thought.  Further, when we know that, this splendid dividend is largely lhc result of a paper currency  monopoly given by the government of this  country to a few individuals without anything  like adequate consideration, we may feel surprised that so little is thought ahout it by ordinary people.  "Still further, when we reflect that these handsome dividends are being paid to people who,  excepting that they have invested sortie comparatively small sums in the shares of the bank,  have themselves done no'thing���������������������������performed no  personal service, to the community for the sum  they receive���������������������������wc may find cause for still further  surprise. Yet il is so. For in fact, before dividends arc computed every contingent risk and  expense of the business has becn fully provided  for, and every person from the head manager  down to the humblest messenger and porter,  who has rendered service either to the bank or  to the community, has bcen paid for his services  ���������������������������somc of these handsomely. Twelve per cent  is the price of usury.  "When wc hear talk of thc tremendous sacrifices Canada has made during the war wc "are  tempted to ask, 'Do bankers and banking institutions form any part of Canada? If so, what  sacrifices havc thcy made?'  "In the chairman's speech wc are informed  that $46,000 was donated hy thc hank to thc  Patriotic and Red Cross Funds. That sum, of  course, was written off before the dividend was  declared. It was not paid by thc shareholders.  If it was paid by anybody it was paid by the customers of the hank, whose deposits form the  main working capital of thc bank, or by the government who has granted them a monopoly of  hanking privileges and a paper currency.  "In vifcw of the sacrifices that have been entailed upon everybody through the war, onc  would think that these people wbuld be eager to  do theili part in liquidating iH& war debt. Yet  that is nal So-. Here is what the chairman says:  'Taxatiofi cannot easily be lessened, and may be  increased. A levy on capital, advocated in some  quarters, must only result in the stifling of individual incentive and enterprise, and the penalizing of industry, self-denial and thrift. Taxing  capital tb the point of unemployment in industrial enterprise would involve unemployment of  labor and. produce serious consequences. If  placed principally upon consumption the burden of taxation is distributed."  "How does that J affect the, soldiers' interests?  When he, returns from the front will, he,be a  bank shareholder or a consumer?  "That is only one out of many questions that  might be raised from a study of this and similar  reports. So the men who have returned, or who  shall yet return from the front, you men who  have made sacrifices incalculable for lh������������������������������������ Canada of,ours���������������������������realize that the government of the  country is in the hands of those owl such liHe  men. Men who having made no sacrifices,- jjut  who, on the contrary, have gained euormousjy  through, the war, yet are prepare^���������������������������nay, determined if they can���������������������������to shirk their fair share of  the payment of the war debts. Will you,cjcan you.  stand for it?   We should say not.  "Comrades, there is' a great work before us.  And not the least of the things we must do is to  let these men, these profiteers, know that justice  reigns throughout Canada. Tlie consumers already have paid for thc war. By their blood, by  their toil, by their sorrows and by their tears,  and they are not going to pay it over again. The  hour for the profiteers' sacrificing draws nigh."  THEY WANT TO KNOW  Before thcrc was Bolshcvikism in Russia there  were contributing causes leading up lo BoLshe-  "vikism. Give any country anise for a thing and  The thing will come. The trouble in Russia is  not that they have Bolshcvikism, but that thcy  havc need of Bolshcvikism. Any country might  have Bolshcvikism if conditions make Bolshcvikism necessary. Canadians are warned by the  powers that l>c against entertaining anything  savoring of Bolshcvikism, and anything which is  not in accord with the powers that bc is branded  as Bolshcvikism. Give a dog a bad name and  -you may as well tie a can to his tail and a stone  to his neck and throw him into thc sea. But thc  cry against Bolshcvikism is not going to stop its  growth. That can be slopped only by clearly  defining what Bolshcvikism is and then getting at  the. root of it and removing the cause. Wc arc  told by thc men in powcr that Bolshcvikism will  never b'c. permit Id in Canada. If conditions  arise making Bolshcvikism a necessary evil in  Canada, we'll gel it, regardless of any parly in  powcr. Let us hope such conditions shall not  arise. But let us not be too sure about our im-  3mmity to Bolshcvikism.  In thc Veterans' Weekly thc following editorial gives food for thought. Speaking with regard to the annual report of the Bank of Montreal, published a few days ago, tlie writer says:  "An institution which for several years run-  iiing, in war time, can pay a dividend upon ils  Under date of Dec. 21st a London dispatch says  that it has finally becn decided that Premier JJJor-  den shall be a fully-equipped delegate to the  Peace Conference, "whenever questions which  hc deems of interest to Canada, as part of the  Empire, come under discussion."

SIX MONTHS' DISCHARGE PAY  An important order-in-council bas been signed  increasing tbe post discharge pay of Canadian  soldiers. This action has been taken as a form  oifl un<jmployniqnt insurance i'or the lirst six  months after discharge. Under tlie new orders,  all soldiers discharged to Nov. 11, the day the  armistice was signed, will get six months' discharge pay. In addition, the rate of pay has  been increased from $1.10 a day so that every  single man will get $63 a month as a minimum  and every married soldier $93 a month. This  will bc paid not in a lump sum but monthly. It  is figured lhat this amount will carry the soldiers  over thc first six months after discharge and even  if lhcy arc unempuoyed will be sufficient to carry  on. By. paying monthly it is hoped to prevent  soldiers from dissinaling their whole discharge  pay. It is admitted that it will mean an increased  cost to tlie counlry of probably $50,000,000.  However, it is felt lhat il is only justice to the  soldiers and will help tide thc country over the  difficult reconstruction period. The government  is also considering the question of insurance, for  soldiers who, owing to disabilities received overseas, cannot secure insurance in regular companies.

We offer you the sincere wish that  1919 will bring continued prosperity  school board as of public interest. The letter is self-explanatory, bringing up the debatable  point of variety vs. many varieties. It is written by Mr. J. W.  Gibson, director of elementary  agricultural education:  "I am much indebted to you  for the newspaper clipping enclosed with your letter of the  20th inst. The writer was evidently filled with admiration  for,the childrcns' accomplishment in the matter of raising a  good crop of potatoes on the  school grounds. And so am I.  But I have to point out that raising a crop of vegetables, even  so as to "command a market"  is not the prime object of school  gardening. It always has been  and I fear always will be, hard  to get people to see this. ,  "This year we have urged the  greatest possible production of  food stuffs, and certainly the  trustees deserve credit for assisting in such a whole-hearted  manner. Furthermore, the purpose to which the funds were  applied is most commendable.  "The writer of the article in  question states that the North  Enderby trustees are practical  farmers and that they know  how to get results. Now what  are the real 'results' that school  gardens are meant to get? Let  me suggest a few:  (1) To develop' those qualities in the individual that make  for good citizenship, such as,  the 'responsibility, of ownership,  respect for the rights of others,  a :de&ite .to 'cooperate in seeking  the common good, and a greater  appreciation., off. they, beauty, and  value of the plant with which  we work and which may help  as well to beautify our home*.  (2) A desire to improve the  home surroundings and to enter  more heartily into the work  there.  (3) To train the youn& mind  to observe minute differences  m form and quality and to develop the power of judgment  in choosing the hest.  (4) To promote a spirit of  independent investigation that  leads to well directed effort in  other hrancnes of study*  (5) To stimulate interest in  agricultural pursuits so that  the young mind will see more  to he desired in the life of the  country.  Now 1 believe it is possible to  so conduct the work of growing  a single crop���������������������������such as potatoes  ���������������������������in such a way as to accomplish most of the above tabu-  }ateci-rcsults,-buW-wiU^say=tbat  it takes a more skillful teacher  to do so than if the crops grown  offered a little variety. It is as  much the business of, the  teacher of school gardening to  acquaint the boys and girls with  all the standard vegetables and  bow to grow them successfully  as it is to produce a big crop of  any one thing���������������������������and more so.  "1 would like now to raise a  few such-questions as the following, after your year's experience in growing potatoes  with your pupils, and I would  expect your pupils to answer  them to the satisfaction of the  trustees, also:  (I) What did you find out  with reference to the suitability  of the soil for potato growing?  What variety do you prefer for  that particular soil (you should  have made your potato field a  testing laboratory for at least  half a dozen varieties.) Had you  any potato diseases present, and  what measures did you take to  combat them and with what  success? What qualities would  you look for in a first-class type  of potato? What fertilizer was  used (if any) and what was it  worth in the market? What  was your yield for each variety  in sacks (lOOlbs) per acre?  After deducting all expenses  including labor (at a fixed rate)  wha t was your profit ? Wlia t  did you discover yourself during the season?  "Now, there are many other  flower border. Simply growing  a large plot of potatoes by ordinary rough and ready methods is not school gardening at  all, but on thc other hand it is  possible for the skillful teacher  to conduct school gardening  with fair success, using only the  potato for cropping purposes.  'Thopc-J have given you my  point of view in this rather  lengthy letter. If I have succeeded in this, you will readily  construct for yourself a sound  philosophy of education  through school gardening."  ,L  Many from Enderby enjoyed  the Christmas tree entertainment given at Grindrod last  Friday evening, followed by the  serving of refreshmchts and a  dance.

IENPPPPT Cny FINANCES  At the last meeting of fnderby City Council  the Finance Committee submitted the foffowing  report, showing the financial condition, of the  city at the close of the council year:  "From the midst of war's alarms we are, by  the_stroke_gf the pen tliat^signed the armistice,  plunged, as it were in a moment, into the problems of reconstruction. And one of the matters  now urgently claiming attention throughout the  Pominion is the rehabilitation of municipal sinking funds.  "Puring the last four years it has been the  policy of your committee to fceep the tax Jcvy  down to the loWest possible point, in order to  give those of our citizens who through the financial stringency accompanying the first year of  war, had fallen into arrcar with their tax payments, an opportunity to recover themselves, ff  this had not been done we should undoubtedly  bave been compelled to resort to tax sales, ff tax  sides had been held most of the property affected  would have reverted to thc city, with consequent  loss of revenue and increased taxation for the  balance; whereas, through the policy adopted,  the various properties arc still in the hands of  their respective owners, are bearing their proportion of taxation, and the greater portion of  delinquent taxes has been collected. At the present time, after allowing for taxes protected from  legal action by the War Belief-Act, we have only  about $1,100 of delinquent taxes on our books,  and most of this is in process of collection and  will be cleared off at an early date. Your committee think this is a remarkably good record,  and one which amply justifies the policy adopted.  "Another consideration which has had weight  wilh your committee in shaping their policy  has been the fact that the city had several'debenture issues maturing between ycars 1915 and  1919���������������������������one of $5,000, another of $2,000 and a  third  of  $2,500���������������������������and   that  the  clearing off of  these ohJigatiops would lighten, the tax levy to a  certain amount, after which such measures as  might he found necessary for the rehabilitation  of the sinking fund could more easily be taken.  "The City Auditors and the bank have perir  odically called attention to the necessity for  bringing the sinking fund up to date, bwt so fart  owing to conditions brought about by the war,  leniency has been shown. Tlie time has now come  however, when it is necessary, for the maintenance of the city's credit, that a plan be devised,  and put into execution forthwith, whereby within a stated period the sinking fund will once  morc be at par.      . \'  "We are in the fortunate position of having,  after next year, when the last of the debenture  issues mentioned above, will be paid, no more  bonded obligations to come due for a period of  ten ycars. Tliis gives ample time for the working  out of a satisfactory plan. Also, while our sinking fund is computed on a 4 per cent basis only,  the balance of the fund, amounting to $6,800, is  in Victory Bonds and earning about 5M> per cent.  Furthermore, wc expect to sell our road-making  machinery for thc sum of $4,000 or thereabouts,  and thc proceeds of this sale will go into thc sinking fund, while thc annual levy made to carry  this machinery���������������������������that is, thc interest and sinking  fund due on it���������������������������will be dropped, thus further  lightening taxation. The difference remaining  after these adjustments, to be, made up, will be  about $3,000. This approximately is the amount  for the payment of which in the next few years  arrangements must be made.  "Youn committee recommend that it be referred to the City Auditor to prepare an actuarial scheme for the rehabilitation of the sinking  fund within a certain number of years, by levying, in addition to all other taxes, a special tax  for the purpose.  >,. tt  A1- V  ���������������������������>'~i  The latest trust is calld the Liverpool,  headed by Carter and Bcecham.

"This is quite in accord witli  my own views, as, during the recent inlluenza outbreak, ihe Red  Cross in Vancouver gave to the  various Military Hospitals cmer-  gencyc.-supplies  to  the value of  almost   ������������������-1,000.     If    this   were  necessary in such a short, time,  what a vast quantity of supplies  Avill'lie required when the 2/,000  British   Columbia  soldiers  now  overseas return home, many of  Ihem to he indoor pa lien Is for|  " ^^ii-ViTid yea rs.

"With reference to civiliair re*  lief, it is estimated that the min-"  imuni number of CzedJio-SIo-  yaks, Belgians and Jiussffliis  who will die during the present  , winter from insufficient' cloth"  ing and food is 7,000,000, but  this number will probably total  nearer 15,000,000. Canada can  do very little for such a vast  number, but she will do hcr  jsharc, uot forgetting'that but for  "*ihe" iiellr ������������������i' ^le Russians curing  the  year191t> illc French  and  British armies wouivJ probably  have been overcome.  Thc Red Cross women of B.C.  will not fail to take Iheir share  of Canada's burden, and as a "beginning, the Vancouver branch  is starting on children's clothing  made of flannelette,. with patterns for same to bc given out  at the Bed Cross headquarters.  Each garment is simple and  easily made, material to be of  pyjama flannelette.  "The skirts of thc women arc  full,   gathered   to   a  band   and  loose  blouse   with    belt   which  completes the outside costume. I  Girls use skirt and middy.  "Mrs. Potter, the matron of  pur. Canadian Bed Cross headquarters in Vladivostok, will  write mc a letter on her arrival  * in that city, setting forth condi-  fons" as she finds them, and this  Idler I shall make public and  communicate to our branches.  Any other'information you may  require will be gladly given.  "Thanking you one ajfd ail for  your splendid work and loyalty  to the cause in the past, and  trusting j.o a continuance of it  in the fu*tufc along the lines  mentioned."  When W. C. Findlay was imVe Prohibition  Commissioner for the Province of B. C., he was  a strong member of thc People's Prohibition  Party. That he failed to live up to the trust imposed in him is not against the party any more  than any other public official's misdeeds are  against the government in power, whatever be its  shade of politics. But it is as much so. And it  should be sufficient to satisfy that class of petty  reformers that men and society cannot be reformed���������������������������-made better���������������������������by legislation.  In  repudiating Findlay  lhe People's  Prohibition  party resolved  that  "we reprobate  in  the  strongest  terms  the gross fraud and breach of  trust affecting lhe public which lias been committed  by  ex-Prohibition   Commissioner  W.   C.  Findlay in thc discharge of his public office.   We  regrcl lhat he has seen fit lo make no statement  which would assistr the  officers   of   thc   law   in  bringing to justice his accomplices. We deplore  that proceedings have been so instituted and conducted lhat merely by thc payment of a fine the  evidence so vital to thc bringing of all parties to  justice has bcen thus far concealed, and wc urge  upon thc government that every step bc taken to  discover the persons implicated in this crime jjJWl  lo bring them to justice."  Undoubtedly the men who drafted this resolution arc sincere.    Like thc men who printed thc  pamphlet, "Thc Crisis in B.C."   It also reads like  the campaign talk and promises of thc men now  in Power with regard to thc Scott ballot stuffing  cases, then such a vital issue with thc people.   It  ���������������������������will be remembered how thc promisc was then  mode   that   the    Scott    investigation    would   be  carried (o tiiy, bitter end until thc men "higher  up" who employed..?00" wcrc brought to justice.

He is now enjoying him sell' HI California, living on the best lhc land affords.  And thc first thing these same men have done  WORST PLAGUE SINCE BLACK DEATH  The medical* correspondent of the London  Times writes that there seems to be reasonable  grounds to believe that six.million persons have  died of influenza and of pneumonia in the last  twelve weeks. This plague, therefore, has been  five times more deadly than the war, which, it is  estimated, killed twenty million persons in four  an a quarter years. Influenza has cost London  ten thousand lives up to������������������date.  Never since the Black Death has such a plague  swept the world.   In India alone, it is estimated  there were   three   million   deaths.     In Bombay  there were fifteen  thousand,  and in Deldi eight  hundred daily.    The Punjab lost a quarter of a  million people.   In Cape town two.thousand children were left destitute.   The natives were swept  down as.-by fire.   Eighty per cent of the natives  of Samoa were afflicted..In Spain, the plague was  terrific.    In. Barcelona there were ten thousand  deaths alone.    In  Australia   and'North America  thc totals arc enormous.  No medical authority is certain of any conclusion yet reached, but possibly a still undiscovered  organism is responsible. Possibly thc increased  violence of thc influenza baccillus is responsible.  It was mild when it first started in Spain. It  visited England in a mild form, then America,  and Jhett returned to England in a severe type.  Usually it first appeared in seaports. The figures  indicate thflt Jhe infection was by contact and did  not occur thr&igh the air.

AUSTIN   AV|.        -  SPIRITUAL RECONSTRUCTION  "SE  l  SI  I'  in connection with Findlay's crime is to bring in  a hurry-up conviction against the irian, permitting the Payment of a fine of $1,000 and then  shooing Findlay across tlie border and away, possibly lo jojn Scott in California. Findlay, the  Government knew, was the only person who  could, possibly be forced to give evidence against  llie "higher ups" implicated with him in the  whiskey deal. They had to get him out of the  way to save somebody else, and thcy did it most  effectively���������������������������and at very little cost.  Attorney General Farris now promises that he  will institute, a "most searching investigation!' of  the whole matter. It will probably be as "searching" as the Scott investigation. After letting, the  principal witness get out of the way, it is quite an  easy matter to make a bluff at "investigating."  Might better save the money thai an investigation would cost and spend it in roadworks  POISONOUS PLANTS JN THE Jf AV  Okanagan Land for Soldiers  It is announced from Victoria  that the Provincial Government  has completed arrangement for*  the purchase of the Jand holdings of the Southern Okanagan  jUand Company for _thc_ purpose  of ~i naugura t i T)|faT argc^sca JcTag^  ricultural settlement in the  jowcr Okanagan Valley. Tlie  property comprises 22,000 acres  <nf choice lands on either side of  the Okanagan Iliver. including  about twenty miles on either  side of the river, together with  a. stretch of bench lands on the  ���������������������������west side of Osoyoos Lake, averaging two miles in width and  running for a distance of ten  miles from the outlet of thc  Okanagan Bivcr to lhc international boundary. The tdwnsitcs  of Osovoos and Fairview arc included in the. properly.  The lands are said to bc ideally situated in lhc garden region  of lhc province, wilh abundant  waler nearby for irrigation  needs, the entire 22,000 acres  being open lands all ready for  the plow and capable of ��������������������������� being  easily transformed into a second  Okanagan-districl. It is understood that the purchase price of  the 22.000 acres Ls $350,000, or  on thc basis of a little more than  $15 an acre, or $100,000 less  than was offered the Company  for the properly four or five  years ago.  Wealth may not bring happiness; but it does give a man an  option about the kind of worry  lie will take on.  Save at least half your cheerful-  .ncss for the folk at home.'  Much loss may be avoided by paying.a little  more attention to the quality of food that is fed  to live stock, says an Experimental farm writer.  To use as food hay.which is 50 per cent coarse  and unpalatable weeds is not the best means of  keeping stock in good condition, nor is it more  wise to feed them poisonous plants. Most animals  have an instinctive"knowledge of injurious foods  and will push aside and leave suspicious portions  of their hay. But this refuse is often chopped up  witty Hie fodder in such a manner that they must  cat it or starve.  Brackcnjs j;on_spicupus_in_hay__b>'L its, .coarse  foliage and rusty green color. A closer examination will reveal on thc under side of the.leaves  a narrow band or margin of rusty brown. All  bracken should bc removed from the hay and  burned. No ill effects appear after eating it once  or twice, as bracken poisoning is slow and cumulative.  Horsetail is another poisonous plant found in  hay, which should bc removed. The seed-pods  of larkspru, dried with thc hay, arc very toxic  and a very small quantity will cause death.  Another noticeable plant found in hay, harmful to sheep, is the lupine. The pods and seeds  arc the most poisonous portions of the plant and  these are often cut wilh the hay. The action of  lhe poison is not cumulative and honcc animals  may feed upon the plant without much harm unless the toxic limit is reached.  A few moments spent each day in looking over  the/hay will well repay even thc busiest owner  of stock.  FRANCE WANTS TO BUY  France at thc end of the war finds herself with  2,360,000 less cattle, 2,258,000 less sheep, and  2,815,000 less pigs than in 1914. She will be glad  to buy pork and hog products in Canada.as soon  as financial arrangements as to credit in Canada  can be arranged. Canadian breeding cattle also  are wanted. Canada is the only country upon  whose cattle France does not maintain an embargo.  Who can tell what virtue lies in the doing of  plendid deed?" asks  the Veteran's  Weekly.  "Thc manhood of Canada heard the 0t'eJ.ll ������������������f  Belgium, of the Motherland, - of thc world, for  succor in their great need, and responded to the  call. Today, as a consequence, thcrc is coursing  everywhere, through the veins of the Canadian  people a new life lhat is lending towards higher  ���������������������������]iinffs. This is true iii quarters where it might  havc"becn least expected���������������������������amongst businessmen,  men of leisure, nien in position and authority,  and even amongst politicians���������������������������and now we find  that it is true tdso amongst educated and morc  cultured classes.  "The latest movement in the direction of progress and thc higher life has been set agoing.in  Winnipeg, the capital- of thc Prairie province.  And it is,directed towards obtaining for the children of Canada an education that will better fit  them for the new. era of world-history upon  which we are now entering than the present edur  cationalarrangeinents can 'possibly do.  "What was shown by the nation's response to  the demands of war, was. the place and the power  of self-sacrificing effort in the higher developments of national life. Men everywhere have  beep hrought to recognize that if civilization1 is to  reach its highest ends, and to do for humanity all  it can o)q, it will he only hy the subordination of  the personal interests and selfish aims of the individual to the wider interests and loftier aims  of the community and of the world as a whole.  "from henceforth that 'no man livethjo himself alone* will he the keynote of human action.  And progress will depend upon the completeness  with which this principle is inculcated and instilled within the minds and consciences of all  ranks and classes within the community.  "Tlds new of things is not new; hut it required  the shocks, the strains, the stress of war to  awaken the general mind to its beauty, and to its  truth.

On the contrary, this view expresses thc last word of science in its pronouncements upon the evolutionary processes everywhere at work in the affairs of human life.  "Biologists, sociologists, philosophical historians all tell us that the integration of life���������������������������the  building up of organic structures by vital process.  ���������������������������everywhere dejxmds upon the sacrifice of the  unit to the combination. And that in human society, as now existing, a stage has been reached  in which, if progress is to continue, the individual  as an individual must decline so that the community as a whole-may rise into the place which  the ultimate purpose of Nature intends it to occupy. To-reach a condition of society in which  the citizen shall willingly and freely sink his own  individuality in the communal life, it will be  necessary to create a new spirit and temperament amongst the people. This can be done only  by directing the whole educational process in the  'training*of the young, to'this end.  Uncertainty as to. the ��������������������������� market with the approach of peace led many stock men to throw  their stock on the market unfinished in the effort  to turn his animals into money before the price  went down.

B. Wells book on "Italy, France and Britain  at War," that he was inclined to exaggerate tiie  evil of officialdom on the life of Great Britain.  It was difficult to conceive that what he wrote of  "Inner Britain" and its pernicious influence on  the life of "Greater Britain" could really exist.  "TJTie oligarchy is so invincibly fortified! Do  you think it will let in Frenchmen to share its  its controls? It will not even let in Englishmen.  It holds the class schools; the class universities;  the examinations for our public services are its  class shibboleths; it is the church, the squirearchy, tlie permanent army class, permanent  officialdom; it makes every appointment,'it is the  fountain of honor; what it does not know is not  knowledge; what it cannot do must not be done.  It rules India, ignorantly and obstructively; it  will wreck the Empire rather than relinquish its  ascendency in Ireland. It is densely self-satisfied  and instinctively monopolistic. It is on our backs,  and with it on our backs we common English  must bleed and blunder to victory."  These words would seem to exaggerate. And  yet a cable to thc Vancouver Province under  Paris date of Dec. 19, indicates that even France  is gelling so much of it that shc is beginning to  cry out. "Many days, possibly some weeks," says  this London Times cable to thc Province, "will  pass before thc business of lhe preliminary inter-  Allied peace conference can begin in earnest.  Precious time is being wasted, apparently without regard lo thc underlying realities of the situation. Onc of these realities is the. natural  anxiety of all the Allied and associated troops to  return home as soon as possible. Another is the  necessity for co-ordinating a concrete inter-Allied  policy with regard to menacing development  such as the Bolshcviki invasion of Poland.  "The arrival of President Wilson and lhc great  cordiality of his reception by the people of Paris,  a, cordiality that can hardly be exaggerated,  must be reck6ned as a distinct improvement in  the somewhat chaotic outlook. ' It would be a  serious mistake to imagine that the President is  disposed to let the grass grow under his feet or  wait indefinitely until all the Allied governments  have stacked hundreds of tons of archives in the  requisitioned Paris hotels t or housed ���������������������������; their  bureaucratic armies of occupation to the intense  discomfort bf ordinary citizens.

A big demand for beef is  approaching���������������������������how will it be satisfied? The only  remedy is for farmers at once to turn their energies to raising more cattle. There is ample  grain to feed them, and transportation facilities  will probably be adequate for all immediate  needs."

It was said  under date of Dec. 20th that the  JPresident was ,not disposed to  let the grass grow under his  feet, and thc hint was given that  if there wasn't something doing  soon at Versailles, Pr. Wilson  might pack his grip and come  home. Then, on the 21st, the  statement is casually made  from Paris that the first meeting of the conference has been  postponed until after February  1st. Judging from the looks of  things, those diplomats who  were so anxious for Canada and  American to get into the war.  are not so anxious for either  Canada or America to get into  the peace conference���������������������������but tliey  will be there, if it takes all summer.
