A few days  previous Mrs. Munro had word  from Mrs. Moberly that the  - daughter was ill, but expected  , soon to be out. of the hospital  and would thdn accompany the  -'mother to Armstrong on a visit.  Miss Moberly was a well-  ' known Armstrong girl.-��������������������������� She  came here from England when  a. child .of elevcif years. She  trained ns a nurse in the Vernon  . Hospital.

"Tlie German Government  now awaits proposals for an  armistice which will be the first  step toward a just peace, as the  President has described it in his  proclamation."  The  re.nl v  is   signed . bv  Dr.  Ji&s  'SolfJVtlTe-foreign minister.'

The Victory Loan 1918 will keep  Canada busy, will enable her to maintain her great export business; and it  will make Canada more efficient than  ever, because her prosperity will not  be diminished and her determination  to work, fight and win will be  stronger than it has ever been before.

In many instances  lhcy have been stored in opII'-ts  before being properly dried. Potatoes showing any indication of  rot  should  not  be stored   villi  sound ones.    This is especially  true if there are abnormal conditions of moisture as such conditions will cause a greater activity of  thc  fungus  and,  consequently,   quicker   rotting   of  the potatoes.  Potatoes should bc stored in  as dry and cool a place as possible without freezing. The  drier thcy can be kept Uie least  rot will develop.  This year especially potatoes  should be carcfully���������������������������sorlcd within from three to four weeks  after storing in the cellar, those  showing any sign of dclcvoping  rot being discarded.

Use Dollars to End War  If my dollar will drive the  enemy back from despoiling  Europe and threatening America, here it goes! I will put all  I can spare into a Victory Bond,,  to help Canada finance its own  war burdens, or secure for  Britain a plentiful supply of  foodstuffs.  For it is not the rich man's  pile that counts most. It is the  accumulation of purchases  made by farmers and rural businessmen from every corner of  Canada that swells the total and  strikes terror to the heart of  our enemy.  When dollars can fight let us  wheel every one of -them into  line and so hasten the peace  that must come when, our golden impact strikes the front line.

TEACHING EUROPE DEMOCRACY  Most Complete  in  UPKEEP OF ROADS  For manv vears tlie upkeep of roads a<nd the  general road-making policy of the Provincial  governments has been based on a policy of party  > pap. No one will attempt to deny tins The evidence has been too flagrant. Today the old policy is being continued with even greater emphasis We see the money going along party lines but  are not getting thc results we used to.get.   #  In sneaking of this acknowledged fault in our  roadmaking policy a friend called atteiilion to  Tollowedin  one of the older settled  the policy ~ .--- , .   ,  provinces of the Dominion, and suggested something of the nature for British Columbia and par-.  licularly for lhc Okanagan.  ��������������������������� In lhe'locality mentioned lhcy follow a dillcreni  policy from ours. Instead of moving a road gang  here and lhere aboul lhc dislrict, often eating up  "morc time going and coming than in doing the  actual repair work, this locality appoints a permanent road man every ten miles along lhc road,  furnishing him with a horse and dump cart and  ���������������������������Al neccssarv road implements. It is the business  of each of these road men to keep his ten miles in  good condition. Working as lhcy do, onc up to  the other's limit, not only has a tendency to but  actually docs make each man do Jus best, lhere  is thc lurlhcr advantage of placing the responsibility and making the individual accountable ior  lhc particular work within his limit. The suggestion is worth considering here where so many  of our road's are so well established.  GREENWICH TIME  Aflcr   turning  Giving lhe "new  ���������������������������o  [he clock ahead an hour and  time a tryoul for the summer  men Ihs' most people are not inclined to go back  lo thc "old" lime. Indeed, il'was proposed in the  United Stales "to adopt lhc "new" lime perman-  cnl'lv. And shouldn't the "new" lime be made  permanent? 0Whal is the use of throwing away  a good daylight hour in thc morning to have to  work an "hour longer bv lamplight at night?  Whal is gained by il? Why hang to thc "Greenwich lime," when all nations in this war have  proved by practical application lhat morc efficiency and better all-round conditions can be obtained by adopting the- more- daylight working  tbue? .  ^"Habit is everything. People and nations get  into ,1110 habit of doing a certain thing in a certain wav. By legalizing "Greenwich time in  most countries of the world, it has bcen adopted  as the lime standard. But why continue to make  it thc standard when it has becn proved at fault?  Turning the clock ahead an hour and turning  it back an hour is only fooling with a bad habit:  If the habit is wrong, why not cut it out altogether? Iri all this agitation for conservation  there is nothing more essential than thc conservation of daylight. And yet, by tuminv  back to thc "old" time, wc deliberately throw  away a davlight hour each day for an hour of  darkness. And why? Simply to hang onto what  all nations havc proved a less ellicient standard  oi" time. - .     ���������������������������        ������������������.������������������������������������������������������'.������������������?'���������������������������:  For centuries all European countries have used  tlie word Democracy as a camouflage to play on  tlie   natural   inclination   of   their   subjects���������������������������the  common people.   Even in the present war-it has  been used moreorlcss as a "cry" without meaning.    But President Wilson, speaking for America, is teaching the real meaning of Democracy  to'. .Europe���������������������������to our Allies as well as our enemies.!  His last note to Germany is the essence of. Amer-j  icanism.    It is the deathknell of autocracy.    His  keen, incisive words cut the mask of all secret  diplomacy and intrigue.    It is a>masterpiece of.  simplicity in diction, .and .'has been well charac- j  terized as President Wilson's greatest ofstate !  papers.   The full text of the note follows: j  "Having received lhc solemn and explicit as-'  surance of the German government that it unreservedly accepts the terms of peace laid down in  his address to the congress of the United States  on thc 8lh of January, 1918, and fife principles of  settlement enunciated in his subsequent addresses  ���������������������������particularly thc address of thc 27th of Sep tern-'  ber, and that it desires to discuss the details oi*  their application and lhat this wish and purpose,  emanated, not from those who havc hitherto die-'  tatcd German policy and conducted thc present  war  on   Germany's behalf,  but from   ministers  who speak for thc majority of the Reichstag and,  for an  overwhelming majority of  the  German  peoples;   and  having received  also   the  explicit  promisc of the present German government that  the humane rules of civilized warfare will be observed,  both  on  land and sea,  by  the German  armed forces,- the president of thc United States  feels lhat hc cannot decline lo take up with the  governments wilh which thc government of thc  United  States is  associated  the  question  of an  armistice.  "He deems il his duly lo say again, however,  lhal the only armistice he would feel justified in  submitting for consideration would be-one which  would leave the United Stales and the powers associated with hcr in a position to enforce any.arrangements thai may be entered into and lo make  a renewal of hostilities on the part of Germany  impossible.

Tedford,' Enderby  Hope Bros, Armstrong  or pur warehouse, Vernon, B.C  \S^..-M  Many a club or businessmen's  commillcc in thc towns and  cities of Canada could aid 'greater war production on thc farms  if thcy would adopt the "tractor  and contractor" idea, which has  been initiated in Montreal and  adopted in Chatham, Ontario.  The contractor idea as applied to farming is simply .this:  A club of businessmen in a  town form a little company,  with- a capital of say $10,000.  Thcy buy a tractor at a cost of  about $1,000, and undertake to  plow idle.land or regular farming land. Thcy employ a-practical" man as their contractor, a  manAvho bas bcen used to handling labor and getting things accomplished. The war has altered the activities of many  such men. Railway contracting,  bridge-building and such work  has been greatly limited by reason of lhc demands of the war  upon capital, upon labor and on  othcr energies of the people.  In Montreal Mr, J. P- Anglin,  thc well known engineer and  building contractor, has undertaken a big contract lo plow  idle land near Montreal, and a  syndicate of businessmen has  been formed to do similar work  in Kent County, Ontario.
