Splendid Entertainment  Next to running a newspaper  in a small town so as to.make it  pay its way and leave a profit  on the plant investment is the  problem. of running .a picture  show in a small town and give  the higher-priced films. The  local;mcn who have taken hold  of tlie Enderby Opera House  and are.endeavoring ito give the  better class-of pictures, are deserving of the most cordial support; The proposition is not an  easy one. We-have frequently,  ���������������������������all,of-us���������������������������heard the remark,  "Why don't we have the better-  class of picture, performances,  in Enderby'^and the same^re-  mark applies probably in every  small town. The answer iseasy:  Because it will not pay. The  "better-class" of pictures cost  too much for a single performance iri any small town or city.  They can be made to pay only  where two or three "rims" of  the films can be made in an  afternoon and evening. To do  this there must be picture .fans  enough in the town to, give a  paying audience at* each performance. . The cost "of. running  the show,;and of the films, is as  great for an audience of ten as,  for an audience "of 200.  -' However, \ the Enderby. Opera  House Company ,is trying hard,  and to daite 1 it can be said the  company-' has , succeeded in'  /'breaking even" ' on the;; high-  priced - *filmsV; This- with ;;the  price of .admissionplacedat ������������������50c  and 25c..

M.F.  appeals for closer co-operatioh among farmers  narlicularlv in the wVrk on lhe farm, and in the  buying and selling end. This writer appeals for  a general wholesale store, run cooperatively-.by  the farmers and in their interest, through which,  he argues, better prices could be obtained than is  possible under existing conditions.,  . Thc other day an Armstrong farmer, a man of  large commercial experience as well as an agriculturist .who has made good, said to the Commoner representative: "What we farmers want is  a general store in Armstrong similar to the  S-A-F-E at Salmon Arm. And wc arc trying for  it. whether we succeed or not."  Whether, cooperative genera] stores are the  best thing for the community is still a disputed  point. Wc may or may not sec such an institution established here. Bul thc fact brought out  is lhat our farmers arc thinking for themselves,  and thc seed of co-opera lion is planted ih them  even if lhc fruits of co-operation have not yel  materialized. We have had other evidences of  lhis recently in many farmers approaching the  Commoner ill commenting upon thc attitude of  lhc merchant who refuses to patronize the Commoner unless thc Commoner will discontinue^ the  acceptance of advertising from the Hudson Bay  of Vernon. Thcy sccin this demand on thc Commoner an cll'ort on the part of the merchant to  close thc columns of thc local paper to any business house offering prices and service to thc community in  competition Avilli himself.  Wilh men, co-operation in somc degree dates  back to the beginning of time. Man, the protector, early learned the lesson "Unity is strength,"  and from physical safety, as civilization developed, came business safety, or trade-union, or'co-  operation. Co-operation, literally Avorking together, is something of which our farmers arc  only in thc experimental stage. And; in fact, as a  community, we have almost everything to learn  in co-operation. Wc havc had co-operation in  the selfish sense���������������������������onc set of the community in  conflict with another set, and the co-operation for  selfish ends in thc little bickerings which live and  clic in "a day. Wc havc had a lot of this kind of  co-operation. Whal wc should have now is cooperation  of   the  broader   type���������������������������a'working  lo-  Ihe old pig in her alfalfa-patch to thebabyin, the  cradle, and the spokesman, somewhat less human  than our fiction friend, J. Rul us WallingfoVd,  possibly an ex-real estate exploiter, who is looking-for a rocking-chair Government-appointment,  will tell you that you 'live like kings.' (Though  when onestjiinks of it, these are not healthy times  for kings either, so there may be* some truth in it)  that the man and woman who live next to-nature  in God's great open arc thc mainstay of thisfivast  and mighty country of ours.'

But I believe that the fate of  such machine string-pullers is as truly coming as  that of John Barleycorn or William Hohcnzollcrn  "But there arc men in both parties interested  first and foremost in the real welfare of the  country. Men who arc giving themselves in a  most unselfish degree to thc solving and untangling of the problems that surround the country  homc.

MAPAMt 0UH9f  Tli������������������ Farooiif Pfscovwrs of R������������������4ium  AH the known radium In the world could be put into a tablespoon, ye|  this less than an ounce of the magic metal has set the scientists of two con-.  tinents guessing at this new conundrum of nature. The answers are very  wonderful, very stimulating, but very unsatisfactory, so far as the theories  are concerned, that seek to explain this rebel element which seems to defy  so outrageously Nature's strictest laws. To M. Pierre Curie, a modest chemist  and his wife, belongs the honor'of discovering the miraculous metal.  ' They are poor, hard-working people, consecrated to science, caring little  for wealth or fame or position. Reserved and conservative, they speak with  extreme caution as to their discovery .made in 1898; although tha non-scien,-,  tific world has just awakened to the revelation in the past two years.  In a little, old-fashioned house at the extreme end of .Paris, near'the  outer boulevard,"whose criminals have given the section an unsavory name,  livesi the devoted couple" with their one.child and M. Curie's father, who is  also a famous chemist. Some years ago Mile. Sklodowski, a poor Polish girl,  went from Warsaw, her native-town, to Paris to study. She had talent and  pluck for the double fight against poverty and opposition. Her first triumph  was when she entered a competitive examination for higher mathematics  'Her success was so-overwhelming'that, the" other competitors were eclipsed  and eliminated. Not having money enough to enter one of the regular schools,  she entered a municipal working-class institute, where M. Curie directed tne  laboratory.   Soon she was his assistant and a little later his wife.  Some of the experiments of Becquerel on tho -adio-activity of uranium  -specially appealed to her,-and she determined to experiment on tho refuse ore  of pitchblende, from which uranium is taken.   It was then considered worthless   like the culm of our coalfields.    She drew her husband into the search  and'it took four years to get enough traces of this metal, -worth three thousand times its weight in pure gold, to show its. pr^terties.    Her paper oa _  radium won for her the degree of Doctor of Physical Science.        :  *   Vs a grain of musk will  perfume a room for a century or more, constantly throwing off fine particles without decreasing its weight, so radium  bombards the ether with light, heat, energy, and half "a. dozen-other marvellous'effects', without appreciable loss, and in a thousand million years it wou'd ^  I-ave lost only one-millionth oi  its bulk.-  It is the Andrew Carnegie of tho-'  netals, constantly giving .but never grov/ing measurably poorer.

C. arc slow iii taking hold  of the United Farmers organization., Thcy know  in a general way what has hccn accomplished hy  the United Farmers of Alberta, of Saskatchewan,  of Manitoha, and recognize what might be done  in British Columbia for the agricultural industry  if once organized throughout thc Province and its  members working co-operatively to bring about  better conditions. They know none of these organizations which havc become so important in  building up the induslry thcy represent has  reached its present position of usefulness without  hard pioneer work on the part of thc early members. They know thc early members of this organization will havc to undertake the dillicult  tasks here in connection with organizing thc district. Perhaps this is why many-farmers arc declining to join the organization, yet admitting the  importance of it, as well as the need of it.  However, there arc men coming forward.who  will complete thc organization in every locality,  and eventually wc shall have in British Columbia  an organization similar in effectiveness "to that of  the United Farnfcrs of the Northwest. >   '>V  At the head of the organization at the present  time is Mr. -R. A. Copcland, of Lumby. The following sketch of the president, which appeared in  a recent issue of thc B. C. Farmer will be of interest to our readers. - :  For  two years he was superintendent of'the irrigation  wbrks, arid during two years he was manager of  the Glenmore ranch, a farm of over 1,400 acres,  on which mixed farming and fruit growing .-were  carried on.  ,: When the war broke out Mr. Copeland was anxious to enlist, but on account of age his services  were.declined.' Failing in that endeavor, lie decided'.to secure a farm and do a farmer's share in  the great struggle by^aiding in the production of  the necessary foodstuffs. He purchased a fine  320-acre farm of good bottom land near Lumby  and during the last few years has certainly made  good, o Last year he grew 90 acres of grain, 300  tons of timothy hay, 140 fat hogs, and has 120  head of cattle besides 8 pure-bred Shorthorns.  He intends to specialize in Shorthorns and'Berk-  shires. _���������������������������  Mr. Copeland's father dicd at the age of 85 and  his-mother at the age of 75. His family consists  of five sons and four daughters living, three children having died. The two eldest sons and daughters are married, and Mr. and MrsJJ Copcland arc  the happy possessors of five grandchildren.  Mr. Copeland is a member of thc A. F. & A. M.,  the L. O. L. and I. O. O.

He is the,son of thc late  John Copcland, a farmer who came to Canada  from the north of Ireland about the year 1845 and  took up* a farm near Winchester. Mis wife was  Arabella TimmihS. * After living there eight .years  the'family moved into Grey County and settled  on a heavy bush farm in thc Township of Proton.  In i882 James Copcland visited Saskatchewan  with the view of locating in the West. Having  satisfied himself in this-respect, hc decided^n 1884  to dispose of his Ontario farm properly arid jf6  move to Summerbcrry, Sask. His family consisted of three sons and eight daughters.  In the spring of 1884, Mr. Copeland took up his  first homestead south of Summerbcrry. In 1885  he took part as a volunteer in putting down the  Northwest Rebellion. In 1887 hc was married to  Miss Isabella McDonell and moved to Grcnfell.  Twenty years later, having attained a position of  substantial influence, he decided to come to B. C.  and selected Kelowna as a-place of residence.

The statement recently accredited to one of the Dominion's  most prominent poultry experts  to the effect that if everyone did  his duty in the matter of keeping  hens, Canada's war debt could  be speedily wiped out with the  revenue derived from this source,  has given to the humble fowl  new distinction as a national  asset. That it has already been  tried and tested in this capasity  with the best results is evidenced  in the case of Denmark and come  nearer home in Prince Edward  Island, where co-operative egg-  selling has become mere or less  of a fine art.  To explain  the origin ot  the  "egg-circles" which are opertmg  in different parts of Canada today, and which are the greatest  stimulus that poultry-keepers can  have, it is necessary  to  turn  to  the commercial  history of Denmark.   It was between 1865 and  JJLS70 that Denmark opened up an  egg export trade with Engknd.  Alter a   time it   was found that  the farmers were  holding back  eggs so as to  receive the higher  prices that prevailed  in a falling  off in the quality of the eggs and  a corresponding decline in trade.  Some far-sighed men, seeing how  fatal the tendency  was,   formed  societies for the  collecting   and  selling of the   eggs,   so stamped  and   numbered as to   show from  whom they came. This was. really  the nucleus of co-operative movement in the handling   of   eggs,,  and it resulted in the restoration  and growth of Denmark's trade  with Great .Britain.   Indeed, the  vearly average  went up from 95  ton in 1895 to 4,661 in 1912. Prior  to the formation of these societies  France had tbe bulk of Britain's  egg trade,    but by failing to espouse the co-operative system, the  trade was dwindled.  The co-operative egg circles, as  ing more or less than associations  organized among farmers for the  purpose of marketing egg frequently and regulary through a  common medium, the object  being to maintain the quality of  eggs as they leave the farm and  to place them in the hands of the  consumer in good condition and  with dispatch.  It is estimate that before the  adoption of the' co-operative  system, Canadians lost between  five and six million dollars annually as a result of carelessness  in the handling and marketing of  eggs. This condition no longer  exists, however, and where  circles are in opertion farmers  are consistently making money on  their hens. Prince Edward Island  with it few thousand inhabitants,  has perfect the system and sets  the pace for the whole Dominion  with it egg circles. Ontario, Quebec, Nova Scotia, and Alberta  have been progressive in this  direction, but for various reasons  little enthusiasm" has been shown  for poultry raising in the other  provinces.  the best chamois. It is only a  question of time, the report states  when these vast herds will con-  situte a valuable asset to the  Dominion.  "The only difficulty in the way  of the utilization of these animals  to-day," the report continues, "is  one of transportation. After full  investigation, it was felt that  whiie, undonbedly, caribou meat  could be brought out now at fairly reasonable prices, the meat  situation in the Dominion was  scarcely such as called for immediate action. The caribou today constitute a great meat reserve for the country."  Too Much Voice  Plenty of Caribou Meat  The Dominion Parks Branch of  the Department of the Interior  has made a very extensive investigation as to the. possibility of  utilizing vast herds of barren-  land caribou to supplement the  meat supply of the- Dominion,  according to the report of the  Commissioner of Dominion Parks  J.B. Harkin, .in the annual report of the Department of the  Interior for the last fiscal year,  which has just been issued.    * m  As stated in the report, it is  estimated that there are at least  2,000,000 to 3,000,000 caribou in  the north. As a' food, caribou  meat is of-a first^ class quality.  The hide when tanned is equal to  Bowler admired his wife immensely, and incidentally his  wife's singing. At a party, when  Mrs. Bower was asked to sing  "There is a Garden in my Face,"  the husband glowed with pride.  It didn't matter, though she  had a face like that of a hippopotamus and a voice like an elephant.  He sat beaming as she sang.  When about half way through  he whisperd to his neighbor:  "Doun't you think my wife's  got a fine voice?"  "What?" said his neighbor,  who was a bit deaf.  "Don't you think my wife has  a fine voice?"'  "What?"  "Don't you think my wife has  got a fine voice?" roared Bawler  ' 'Sorry said the other, shaking  his head.

J4cense No. 9-3409 J  The peace conditions of the Allies were delivered to'the Gcrman delegates the past week. Thc  opinion of" no two commentators is the same on  these conditions. Somc characterize them good,  others bad; but all admit that they strip Germany  naked, and then, as the London News puts it,  after stripping the nation naked, they ask her to  turn out her pockets. These differences of opinion are doubtless because of the varied interest^  involved. There is bitterness on;the part of Italy,  also of China, ahd of France. France claims to  bc ruined by the peace, for it leaves her to shoulder the, load of her war debt of three hundred  billion dollars. However, as Dr. Dillon puts it:  "Three members of thc secret council are alleged"  to be coining around to the opinion that .their labors will be wholly vain unless Germany can soon  be brought inlo the League of Nations r that her  co-operation will make the difference between thc  success and the failure of the scheme and that  whenever feasible, without impairing tlie ^Allies-  interests, this circumstance should be borne in  mind and everything savoring^ of a vindictive  spirit be excluded. Thedelegates are firmly convinced Germany will spoil Russia unless she can  bc pressed into thc folds of the League of Nations  anil .Russia's fate, being-a cardinal .point of the  Allies' policy, every effort is being made" to bring  Germany within the Leauge.'V /*"-   "     V    V, ..  This would seem to.be rthe desire of the^Geiv,  man leaders themselves���������������������������that they be-allowed'to  become part of the League'of Nations, and as  .i'member, make such reparations as; have-been  demanded by-the'"victors.-r-In accepting the-coiH  ditions of-'.peace, the spokesman .biVthe - German  delegates, said ijn Uusvcorinection:i"The;suhhme  thought to bedcrived from thq most terrible disaster in thc history of mankind is the League ot  Nations. Thc greatest progicss in the development of mankind has bcen pronounced and will  make its way. Only if the gates of the League ot  Nations are thrown open to all who are ot goodwill, can the aim be attained and only then the  dead of this war-will not have died in vain. The  German people in their hearts arc, ready to take  upon themselves their heavy lot if the bases of  peace which-have been established arc not any  /more shaken." ^     C  The Vancouver' Province says a hasty reading  of the geographical;terms dictated to Qermany  may lead the reader to suppose that the nation is  almost wiped off the map. The column or so, of  renunciations which Germany is ordered to make  looks like nationaUeffacement. Outside of Europe  it is so. But within Europe Germany is left with  all the territory occupied mainly by Germans.  Alsace and Lorraine are to be given, up,_but if the  inhabitants of- these provinces are both French  and German there is no doubt that they prefer to  .be-French,?and have so preferred during their. 48  years under the German flag. 'The greatest surrender of territory is to the Poles, who have been  German subjects" by conquest"and now demand  independence.

So when  he came into the school yard and  gave wee Luig-i a push slnd a  shove all the boys gathered  around in a circle.  "Luigi hasn't any right to  wear a flag," exclaimed Donald;  "he's a foreigner."  Luigi stood very still. He covered the little flag with his  small bro.wh hand. "This is my  flag too," he said, in his soft,  slow voice. ���������������������������       ������������������  But Donald was the leader of  the boys arid: they all shouted:  "No, no; you're just a Dago."^  Then the bell jangled and  jingled, and the boys filed into  school. An hour later the doctor  came. He whispered to the first-  grade teacher:  She stood in front of the children and said: "Now you must be  good and obey Doctor Forbes."  The doctor knew Donald.  "Come out here, Donald," he  said pleasantly. "Im going to  vaccinate you."  But Donald whimpered and  hid his head on his desk.  ' 'I though you were a true-blue  American," said the doctor.  "Well, who i- brave enough������������������ to  come?"  Somebody stirred in the very  back sent and stood up. The  children turned to see who it  was. Luigi.came down the aisle.  He bared his arm and let the  doctor scratch it without a murmur. He smiled as the doctor covered it up,. and the other children and the teacher clapped for  hiS plUCk.    .   ���������������������������;; ;  Donald was second. His cheeks  were red and he hung his head,  because he let Luigi have his  chance to be brave.  After that all the children  were brave and quiet. At recess  Donald rushed up to Luigi.  "You're.the best American in  our room," he said stoutly, "and  you have, the. right to wear our  flag because its yours, too."  Luigi's great black eyes sparkled and Jhis .cheek grew "red.
