It was felt by  ,ow   thig  year,s   celebration  of   May  past|24tll to be given in the name of the  Aid,   all "monies   clear   of  all   that   the   progress   of   the  year was worthy of recognition, and   Hospital  that it would be difficult to improve  \ expenses  to   be   turned   over  to   the  on   the   effective   work   of   the 'old   Hospital  board.     Therefore,   when   the   elec- believed  tion of the board of directors came | proceeds  up the  members of the  1919  board j raiged by subscriptions and member-  improvement fund. It- is  that in this way, these  to  augment   what   can   be  were elected by the unanimous vote  of the -members, present.  A financial statement of the past  year's operations will be published  as'rsoon as the books are audited'by  the city-auditors.  It was^'decided by the Association  in conjunction;with the Board, that"  a drive should be made this year,for  sufficient funds to erect and furnish  ship .fees, the sum required for  the hospital addition will be" forthcoming^ Fuller particulars will be  known when the Board's plan is  laid on the table.  The Board asked. Mrs. Walker to  undertake -*rthe ��������������������������� formation of-' a  ladies' hospital auxiliary to work in  conjunction   with" the  Board.  A vote of thanks was tendered the  an   isolation "ward,    the   estimated I members of the Board and to Nurse  cost to   be   $2,500.     It   was _ felt by,j McPherson,1 through   whose  untiring  efforts and  harmonious working the  those who had been in active touch  with the operation of the Hospital  the past year, and had observed the  frequent crowded condition and the  lack of accommodation and ' facil.  ities for handling., the, casesv-that  the Association .could not rest until  these conditions''are improved.. ;It  .was  .decided,   'therefore,,  that-   sub-.  success of the past" year was made  possible. It was recognized that  both Nurse McPherson . and . the  members of, the Board' had many  difficulties to overcome, and the able  manner in' which' these difficulties  were handled was not'lost sight of  by the.Association or the.public.  ��������������������������� .

X  After travelling about the country since leaving Enderby, several  weeks ago, Mr. Collin writes from  Victoria that he is located there, en_  joying early spring weather.

Mitchell Jr.,  recently returned to their home in  Garnet Valley, Summerland, |from  their honeymoon trip covering sev_  eral weeks andv taking in many  points of. interest in the Western  States. Mrs. Mitchell, nee Miss  Carefoot, of Enderby, writes for the  Commoner as she hungers "for news  from the home town.  Manitoba has 44 creameries with  22,000 milk and cream shippers.  The total value of dairy products  for the year 1919 amounted to  $16,789,892.  Farmers from all parts of the  Province will gather in Victoria  next week, the opening day of the  conferences, etc., to be Monday, the  23rd. The outcome of these meetings and conferences may considerably change the complexion of the  producers and farm organizations- in  the Province.  On Monday and. Tuesday the advisory board of the Farmers' Institute meets, when recommendations  for affiliation with the United Farmers will be presented from, a number of Institute delegates. There has  been criticism of the advisory board  in the past, and some criticism of  the Provincial Government in deal.:  irig with the Institute. This may  possibly crystalize in ' a > movement  to ^abolish the Institutes altogether,  the members merging their identity  *n the.United Farmers. j  The United Farmers aremeet'ng  ostensibly fcr- the' purpose of debating JJyWhether- .they shall form a  iroviricial' branch </ the Councjl of  ���������������������������Vgriculture. ;Hs W.

Pretty Costumes and Merry Faces  on Enderby Ice in Final Carnival  Many excellent costumes were  shown at the skating rink' Monday  night when the second fancy-dress  carnival  of    the   season    was    held.  Possibly there were fewer skaters  in costume than at the carnival"two  weeks ago, but those shown were,  if anything, better put together and  the   characters   better   sustained.  Miss- Ferguson as the Archer, won  the lady's "prize; Wm. BJlackburn,  the Cannibal Chief, took the prize  for men; Margaret Walker, as- Cu-  pie, .won, the girl's prize;.and Alvin  Wood, as the clown, took the boy's  prize. i  Following the prizelgiving, races  were-held and, even on the limited  course, some very interesting speed  contests   were   witnessed.  'In the men's race, Theo. Adams  came =out ahead, with Jack McMahon 2nd; in the lady's race, Mrs.  Wm. Blackburn lead with Mrs. Rod.  Sparrow 2nd; in the girl's race, Sis  Sparrow - won, with Betty " Bryant  2nd; in the boy's, Cecil /Sheiflow  came 1st, and Alvin, Woods 2nd;  in the' doubles, Mrs.' Rod Sparrow  and Ed Sparrow won 1st, with Miss  Ferguson and" Jack -McMahon- 2nd;  in the boys and girls' double,* Sis  Sparrow and "Kitchener Antiila/took  1st, Jean Keith and- Walter Woods  2nd; in' the_ Old .Ladies' race, Mrs'.  Lucas  took   1st,  Mrs. -Lambert  2nd.  Prizes were given in all JJ these  events, and the * races Jwefe'well contested and proved interesting * to all.  It  is7 probable" this   carnival   will"  end that sport until next wiinter.  Skating will continue as long as the  ice lasts. The rink has again been  a valuable asset to the town for the  out-door enjoyment of the winter  afternoons and evenings. With  favorable weather conditions and  good management .the rink was  made to pay its way. To Sidney  Green and. Jack Funk is due the  credit  for this success.  HARD SURFACE TRUNK ROAO  Matter to Be Taken Up with Other  Okanagan  Municipalities.  At a meeting of the Enderby City  Council last week it was decided to  take up   with   the  other   cities   and  towns of the Okanagan the question  of hard   surfacing   the' trunk   road  from   one  end   of  the   Okanagan  to  ^the other,  with  a view, if  possible,  'of-making  united   representation  to_  j the Government on the question..    ,  I"   A   letter   was   received   from -the  ! Dominion - Water     Power    .Branch,  Ottawa, stating that no definite" decision   had   been   arrived   at   as "to  giving the city, control over watershed    lands    in    vicinity  of  Brash's  Creek,-but   that   a ^reservation had*  been placed .upon them so as to prevent any contamination of" the water  i.        -   ...       i  supply, and that in this way .the  city's interests were fully; protected  until \ permanent agreement-'jis entered into."       ~ V  -   v-     l������������������    \  pjjsp OF |������������������NEU������������������fOMA  ==^-The-death_ofiMrs.-j=RolandJMitchel1,  at Armstrong on Tuesday came a?  a shock to many in the town and  district, where since babyhood she  has made a host of friends. Mrs.  Mitchell was.a daughter of Mr. and  Mrs. Thos. Clinton of Larkin, one of  the oldest families in the district.  Mr. and Mrs. Clinton were visiting  in California. They were notified  and " are hurrying home, for the  daughter's funeral which will take  place on Friday afternoon from the  home of Mr. and Mrs. Becker.  Mrs. Mitchell contracted a heavy  cold about a week ago while visiting  her sister, Mrs. Frank Becker, and  although every effort was made to  save her life she died at (noon on  Tuesday.  Owing to the health regulations  providing against indoor gatherings  services at the residence will be private. Friends meeting outside the  residence will accompany the remains to the cemetery.  The deceased leaves a husband  and three small children to mourn  her" going, who, with her parents,  have the sincere sympathy of the  community.     *  A Texas lumberman is - the inventor of a portable electrically-  driven band saw for felling trees  and cutting them into logs.

Mr. Mara had been in  falling health for the past year, but  while resigning his direct personal  association with some or, the activities in which he was most keenly  interested, he had not lost the desire to cooperate in their work. He  settled in Kamloops district in the  early days. His forceful personality  and abundant energy soon made itself felt in politics and the general  affairs of the community.

This is the message brought home, from thc  Coast on Saturday by Ihc Vernon delegates to  the convention of ^hc" Provincial Boards held in  Vancouver. Thcy were" enthusiastic in discussing lhc possibilities lhal should follow lhc joining'' up of lhe Interior and Coast'-Boards, and  urged strongly lhat [here be an awakening in  Board of Trade matters throughout lhc Valley.  - In Ihis connection here is something good  "rom  the Salmon Arm Observer.    Does it apply  is performed; it can be done by a novice. That  was also true of the ������������������������������������������������������ old * system: We know a  man who when a boy went" to school with the  nicest kind of a vaccine sore on his arm. He was  envied by all the other, boys. They wan ted*, to  bc vaccinated, too. So he pulled out his jack-  knife, rolled up his sleeve and ������������������lhc sleeves of his  playmates, and from the pus, on his sore arm  vaccinated the whole school of boys. If simplicity of method is all there is to it this school  lad had something on Dr. Young . But the point  the vaccine poison  is pul inlo lhc body. Thc operation is nothing.  Thc real objection lo vaccination by these "irresponsible" persons lhat upset Dr. Young, is  in the dillicully of gelling the vaccine  oul of the system instead of into it.  A scar on the arm or the leg is little, but thc  cicatrice of superstition on the soul is a calamity.  Children should be taught thai health can come  only from a clean body, a pure mind, and from  useful work and righteous living.

We  realize only too well that the lethargy of somc  people is simply chronic, wilh the result thai a  few narrow-minded bohohcaels always seem to  secure thc right of way in some.of our public  institutions. To bc sure, there arc exceptions,  bul it is easily perceived lhal the effective.work  which could casilv bc accomplished by our  more energetic and wilh'no- workers is too often  sliiled right al iK inception, simply through lack  of support and the gross indifference to matters  of public import by the great majority of pur  citizens.

There are a number of vital  wilh thc rest of us."  Thc Stale of Illinois has practically declared the  vaccination law unconstitutional. The Supreme  Court of that slate, Justice Vaughan presiding,  thus decided a case before it: "Tbis case is an attempt to have a Writ of Mandamus issued compelling a School Board lo accept as a pupil a ccr-  | Ltii.ii child that has not been vaccinated. This  : Court docs nol find that a hcallhv child is a  danger or a menace lo pupils or Icachcrs. Therefore, lo deprive him of school privileges is to do  him a wrong ancl an injustice. In the case al  bar thc child is not on trial. Of himself he  could never bc expected to go to a physician and  ask lo be vaccinated. AH of his instincts arc  against the operation. ' Tbis Courl does not attempt lo decide whether vaccination is a/pro-  phvlaclic against disease���������������������������wc merely hold thai  il has not been shown that a healthy child is a  menace or danger lo his fellows. That thc voting  shall he "educated is very desirable: and. the attempt to deprive certain children of the right of  public school advantages is a very serious matter. ' Thc dangers arising from ignorance and  idleness arc quite as imminent as these arising  from smallpox. .".    .  "To use the leverage of coercion or irit'imida-  lion, with parental love as'a fulcrum, and thus  forcc parents to do certain thinqsJagainst their  conscience, is neither ethical nor equitable.

[ Enderby,   B.C. '31  OKANAGAN  COMMONER  THURSDAY,   FEBRUARY   19,   19 20  WAVK   Oh"   SI'llJI'n'AIJSM  Every    great    disturbance   in  mental  and   spiritual  atmosphere  of  the    world    has    becn    followed    by j  marked    increase   in    tho   desire   of;  the   human    mind    to   delve   deeper j  into the  mystery of  things that are  and   seem.     Over   in   England   there i  is   a   most   marked   increase   in   the  followers  of  Spiritualism.     So  much  so tliat the bishops and other clergy  are seeking to know more about the  phenomena.       The    other    day    the  Dean   of   Durham   (Bishop   Welldon 1  preaching     in     Durham    Cathedral,  said   that "perhaps  the  most remarkable   of   the   spiritual   consequences  of  the    war   was   the    desire   of so  many    pious    souls    for    communion  with the dead.     "Is there," he asked  "any   possibility   of   intercourse   between the living and the dead?     We  know That  the dead  are still  living.  We  know    that    they    have    entered  .upon   a   larger   ancl   better  'life,   but  can they tell us anything about that  life,  even  so  much  as  would  assure  us; by a personal message, that they  are  still   alive?      Tt   is   the   silence  which   is   so   awful���������������������������that   long,   unbroken,  that ""inexorable  silence.     Ts  there any voice, any word, that it is  Discussing the- question as to  whether '-spiritualism in itself, was  right or wrong, Bishop Welldon remarked that tiie Church must be  ready to accept new "truth. She  must not. say���������������������������for it would be as  irreligious as unscientific to say "it  of any truth���������������������������that it was impossible  or incredible. Tt might be the will  of God to reveal new' lesson's by.  means of spiritualism, and if .so the  Church must not refuse ,or resist  but must  welcome  those  lessons.-  "Spiritualism in itself is not irreligious or un-Christian. If the life  after death   is  a  dream,  then indeed  is   religion   folly;    but   if   the   spirit  j of  man  survives  the experience  that  t]    iis   called   death,   if   it   does   not   die,  [but enters upon  a new life,  then, at  "Ir-ast,  it   is  possible���������������������������1  say  no  more  !���������������������������but  it  is  possible,   that  the  spirit  'may  in  certain  circumstances  manifest   itself   to   human   eyes,   and   the  j spirit    may    communicate    by    some  means   or  other   to   living  spirits  on  this   earth.     There   are   many   difficulties  and   many  improbabilities  attached   to   the   alleged   spiritualistic  phenomena;    there   is   the   suspicion  and.  even    discovery    of    fraud    in  some   of   them.       Yet   nobody    who  concerns   himself   with   spiritualism  or   spiritualistic   phenomena   in   the  present  clay     can  , help     being   impressed   by   the   intellectual   and   tho  religious   character   of   some   spiritualists.     Whether   or   not  there   are  appearances   after   death   .must   rest  wholly   upon   evidence;    and   I   hold  that the evidence for them is so considerable,     so     independent,   and   so  difficult     of     explanation���������������������������if    it- be  assumed   to     be     trustworthy���������������������������that  the candid mind will yield at least a  provisional assent to the theory that  such    communications   as   these   between   the   living   and   the   dead   are  not   unworthy   of   belief   among   individual   Christians  or  in   the   Christian Church."  o  BXDERBY   COURT   OF   REVISION  Complaints    Heard   and    Assessment  Sustained in Most Cases  At the meeting of the Court ' of  Revision' held- at the City Hall on  Monday, the 9th inst, and an Wednesday, the 11th, with the Mayor  and Aldermen Burnham, Coltart  Gaylord and Nichol sitting, the following complaints were heard and  disposed  of:  J. H. Teece complained that he  did not own lot 1"i on roll, and ;i  search of the records was ordered  to find the owner.  .1. Dunwoodie complained that his  property was not included in School  District. It was found on investiga-;  tion that the complaint was correct,  according to the redefined boundaries of the Rnderby School District  and the property was struck out  the roll.  STAND  TOGETHER  All the residents of a town are  partners, not opponents. In all 'likelihood the more business done by  your rival, the more you will do.  Every merchant who "treats his customers honestly and fairly will get  his share and the more business  that can be secured by united effort,  thto better it will be for all. When  a town ceases to grow it commences  to die, and the more people try to  kill each other off in business and  good name the more rapidly will  utter ruin come to all. Stand together   for   tho  advancement  of   all.  Kamloops is fighting an epidemic  of  flu  in   dead   earnest.

At  last it became so embarrassing that  he :left. Not long afterward he met  the curate who .succeeded him.  "Well," he asked, '"how clid yon  get on with the ladies?"  "Oh, very well indeed," said' the  other. "There is safety in numbers,  you know."  "Ah," was the instant reply, "I  only  found  it in  Exodus."  G.   R.   Lawes**1 complained  that' his t for.  property   was   assessed   above   agricultural   or   horticultural   value.   Assessment  sustained.

It  smells bad in some forms to some  people, but it ruins no families. It  costs money, but workingmen do  not blow in their weelds earnings  on Saturday night in cigar stores.

If the  millenium comes tobacco will probably go. But so will advertising,  newspapers, doctors, ministers and  lots of other aids and troubles to  ,he existing phase or life. If tobacco goes then, it will go in a  large company. But pending the  millenium, we are likely to keep it.  ���������������������������Life.
