Noakes, of Vancouver, spent thc past -week in the  Armstrong-Enderby district. His  mission was lo buy wheat for  the Victory Flour Mills, and Jie  had many carloads lined up  when the order-in-council came  from Ottawa forbidding thc  buying and selling of wheat by  anyone but lhe Canadian Wheat  Board( recently appointed by  Ottawa to handle the Canadian  wheat crop. - When this order  came through Mr. Noakes had  lo release the wheat contracted  lor.  Thc Victory Flour Mills, Vancouver, are successors to C. P.  Coles, Ltd., who purchased thc  plant of the Columbia Flouring  Mills, Enderby. Thc machinery  was removed to Vancouver and  there installed in the Victory  mills, with ollices.al 806 Beach  avenue.  Mr. Noakes says his company  is open to purchase 1,500 bushels of valley wheat per day.  They desire the soft wheat  found here.

The civic thanksgiving service, held at Recreation Park was attended hy all  citizens from town and country,  and thc services were most appropriately carried - out and  greatly enjoyed.

' < .    .     ,  Following hymnal singing >y  the congregation 3and Scripture  readings by the Rev. J. Wesley  Miller' anti the Jflcv. f\. Rogg,  Mr. P- S. freeman delivered a  stirring address.  "five ycars ago today (August _3),__gaid he, ^'Sjr^ Jpdward  Grey strengthened the heart of  France by saying in the House  of Commons that Great Britain  would stand by her neighbor  with all the might of her navy,  etc., should Germany attack the  northern or western coast of  France.  "Five years ago tomorrow  during an interview between  Sir Edward Goscbcn and thc  Chancellor of Germany the latter called thc neutrality pact  with Belgium "a scrap of  paper" and arrogantly asked if  Britain had thought what it  would cosl to maintain that  pact. Atult p. ni., August 4,  1914, Great Britain declared war  against Germany. Five ycars  ago, August 6", Mr. Asquith answered the question, 'What Arc  We Fighting For?' in the  House of Commons. His answer  was: (I) To maintain our honor  by "keeping our solemn promises; (2) To help thc small nation to exist in independence."  "So we entered the great war.  So. like a knight of old, the British Empire put on hcr armor  and. sword in hand, leaped into  the fray, for the sake of honor,  and for thc sake of thc weak and  helpless.  "High" motives, indeed, worthy  of a great victory and an enduring peace'.  "One year ago today thc horizon was still dark.

"  "Whal does peace mean |o  us? (1) Cessation of strife,  with its consequent terrible loss  of-human life, wilh its loss of  property, etc., wilh its loss or  threatened loss of the 'golden  rule' standpoint and the *sub-  slilulion in our hearts of a  hatred that would have blotted  out-justice.
