Mr. Folkard recently  returned from the Coast where he  underwent an operation in- the military Hospital. He is much improved  In health.  Charlie Wallin was in Jpncjerby on  Saturday last from his garden of  Eden, Mabel Lake Valley.

Several  took advantage   of   the   opp'ortunity-  to   join.   "Cards   and   other   games  were   provided-'and   all - enjoyed, a  very  profitable evening.

A  COJWECTIOX  The attention of the Commoner  has been called to a discrepancy in  the news items sent, from Grindrod  last week and published in these  columns. It -was stated that Jap-'  anese had leased ai-will site on the  Skyrme farm, on the river, and that  a carload of mill machinery had arrived forca mill to be established  at this point by Japanese. Mr.Thos.  Skyrme Informs us that our' inform.  ant^is^incor-rect^^in^^the^statemenrt  printed.

A terrific blizzard, with hea-"'  snowfall and the temperatuis running 20 to 40 below zero, was experienced this week in the Northwest. Twelve miles of telegraph  poles running out of Calgary were  swept down by the wind and drifting snow. And in the Okanagan we  complain of the frost before sunup  and muddy roads afterwards!

There  were many people in costume and  the popular vote was again used to  decide the winning costumes. The  prizes' went to best-dressed lady,  Marde Stapleton, as butterfly; best  dressed gentleman, Albert Olson as  a :king; most original lady, Andy  FyalJ as the Old Dame; most comic  gentleman, Lou Anderson as a Genuine Bo.  Wm. Folkard, who has been under  medical treatment at the Vancouver  military hospital, returned home  last=-week.  "  A quiet wedding was performed  by "Rev. J. R. Gretton, at the home  of Mr. and- Mrs. E. Skyrme last  Firday evening when Miss Crawford  and Mr. Gus Leduc, both of Armstrong, were married. They left on  the evening train for the Coast.  G. Williams returned homo last  week after undergoing medical  treatment at the Coast.  Miss I. Stoodley returned to her  home at Armstrong last week.  At a meeting of the Farmers' Institute held last week it was decided  to have three competitions, viz:  garden, mangles and wheat. All  entries should be sent to J. Monk,  with the entry  fee of 50c.  The secretary of the Institute  wishes to announce that 100 cases  of powder are on tlhe way.  On Saturday, Mar.  1st, a meeting  took place at Falkland, school house  at 2.30 p.'tn., called for the purpose  of  forming a  branch  of  the  United  Farmers of B. C.    Some 28 persons  were  present.     Speeches  were made  by Dr.   P.   Ord,  V.S.,  Mr.   MfcClung,  W.  A.   A.   Warren,   J.

H. M.  WALKER  THURSDAY, MARCH 18, 1920  Who Gets It ?  A vcporl J'mm Ottawa states that on investigation it has been discovered that tlie wholesale  grocers of Canada are nol making more than  5r/v on their investment, and lhal Ihey would bc  better oil' il" they closed Iheir door and did not  do anv business "as wholesale grocers. Il will bc  difViciill to adjust one's thought to this belief, especially .since the retailers have, claimed all along  that it"was the wholesalers who were taking the  cream ofrthc excess over normal prices. II* this  is true of the wholesale grocers it is probably as  true oi' thc wholesale boot and shoe dealers-, lhc  wholesale harness dealers, and all other lines of  wholesalers. And ii" this is true of lhe wholesalers it is probably as true of lhe manufacturers. And if it is true of lhe wholesalers and the  manufacturers it is probably as true of thc retailers, thc producers and the consumers���������������������������in  fact, it is probably as true of lhc whole dashed  lot of us. Ts it not a fact that thc ncl result of  this period of frenzied finance and high prices is  that, in thc final analysis, we find ourselves just  where wc were in times of normal prices.^ Some  arc morc economical lhan others now jusl as  some were more economical than others Ihen;  some arc making money now and some arc going behind. Shorter hours of labor and higher  wages does not mean more leisure and more  wealth for thc laborer, with less to worry aboul.  Thc farmer and producer may get double and  treble the price he received when times were  normal, but lie is no farther ahead after Ihc  season is over. Prices go up all along the line  to balance conditions. It is a sort of fools' para-  disc we arc living in���������������������������but what arc  to do about it?  you going  Seeking Homes in Okanagan  Almost dailv newcomers arrive at Armslrong  or Enderbv to locate in this favored (Mslrict.  Thev quietly look lhe locality over," select what  thev want, pay thc money over, and become  residents. These people arc thc forerunner of  lhal larger influx which is headed this way. Thcy  represent only a fraction of what wc mav anticipate before"1920 runs out. In selecting homes  in-this district, whether it-be in ,town or country,  thev cannot go amiss. Every acre ofVand in this  portion of the Okanagan Valley. Avilf onc day be  under'cultivation, or" made productive in other  ways. Every lown lot will have a- value far in  exefess of the price now put upon it. Why do  wc think so? Primarily because thc Okanagan  Valley i.s restricted in area, and thc bet Icr parts  of it" arc somewhat confined. Climatic conditions, bcautv of landscape, and our excellent  market facilities, together wilh lhc never-failing  fertility of the soil, always will attract home-  seekers, and make a steady demand for available  farm land and land for garden and field truck  growing. The man buying' now virtually gels  "in "on \he ground floor.'"' Thc district is only at  lhc doorway of its larger possibilities. It has  developed "well, biit only in spots. When full  development comes, it will be on a scale not yel  considered possible.  Printing Prices  Speaking of increases, let us cite you onc in  connection" with printing. Possibly you have had  somc_ printing done in normal Imes; possibly the  Vanlc jol'yHTas^bcen <loMTiTolrc"V'Utrhtly^fntcl-yotr  have wondered why the increase in cosl. We  had occasion a week or two ago to use three  press numbering machines on a job of printing.  We were using'there and'required six in order  lo reduce thc \vork of getting thc job through  thc press. These numbering machines used lo  sell for So. and up lo a year ago wc bought them  at #8. The. three numbering machines were ordered and in due course came to hand. Imagine  Ihe surprise when on opening up we found them  billed af $22.50 each. Thc price has since goiv-  up another .$5. and the machmc lhal used lo sell  al. $f>  is now .quoted al $27.50.  on the cosl of the machine and the aver-  To of one, printers then set a price of 15c  000 impressions for each numbering machine on Ihe job at one printing. This meant.  lor example, a charge of 90c per 1000 impressions with six machine's on the job at the same  lime, while, a I Ihc present cost of the numbering  machines, and based upon the life of one and the  costs of operating the press now as compared  wilh cosls when thc-standard rate of 15c a 1000  for each machine was made, it would cost the  printer today $el.50 to do or have done what hc  used to sell for 90c.  This is illustrating only one instance of the  great increase in the cost of printing. Tt is not  an' exceptional onc. Othcr examples could be  given. Wilh some makes of prmtng machinery  up 5009V and all print paper, bonds and flats,  jumping higher in price everv week or two, the  printer who fails to watch his "cases" and does  not ask the price that means a profit will soon  OKANAGAN  COMMONER  be out of business. Economy in the use of stationery by every businessman is essential. The  printer must demand a living price for his work  or go under. The businessman who will waste  stationery today, or will not conserve in the use  of printing paper, will soon be without statioery  to waste. .. . o'  THURSDAY, MARCH 18, 1920  Enfranchising the Indians  Tt has becn an old cry of this paper, lhat thc  Dominion Government was uot acting justly by  the Indians, particularly those on British Columbia .'reserves, where 'no schoolhouses arc provided and no onc resides on the reserves to aid,  watch over or advise the wards of thc Government and sec that thcy get fair treatment in  their dealings with the whites. Tt is therefore  of interest to note that among thc important  pieces of legislation which will bc brought before the Dominion House this session will bc an  Act designed to do a measure of justice to thc  first possessors of thc country. It will bc placed  before parliament by Hon. Arthur Mcighcn, and  will bc the most advanced legislation of thc kind  ever introduced on the continent dealing with  those who have been thc wards of thc white race  so long. Tt contemplates nothing less than the  elevation of the Indians of Canada from the position of wards-of the Crown to that of complete  and responsible citizenship by means of compulsory enfranchisement and compulsory cduca-  Mon. Under thc old Indian Act a member of a  band1 could only be enfranchised after passing  through two probationary periods of three years  each, and then onlv with the consent of his tribe.  Thc new Act will release him altogether from  tribal control, and make him lo all respects and  purposes  an  independent  Canadian  citizen.  Monarchists On  Top  Despatches from Germany this week report  thc Monarchists is complete control <">f all Government buildings and former President Ebert  to .have fled from Berlin. "The former Government has ceased lo exist," lhe report adds, and  "entire 'authority has passed into thc hands of  Director Knapp from Kocnigsburg.

Ireland Misrule  Based  age  per  England is fond of boasting what she bas done  for Ireland, and thc impression.is given that Ireland refuses to be reasonable in accepting thc  good bestowed upon her by the ^parent state.

He charged that a large proportion of thc  crime in Ireland was due lo Ihc senseless policy  of the present government. Thc great obstacle  to frank and friendlv co-operation between  Greal Britain and the United States, hc asserted,  was Britain's failure to apply to Ireland the  principles they had both agreed on at the peace  conference, which were to bc the governing  principles  of   civilization.  Speaking in the Dominion House a few days  ago Dr. Clark said he. agreed with the impracticability of any onc class ruling the counlry.  and said lhat it was largely accidental that these  who now support the platform of thc Dominion  Council of agriculture were mainly farmers.  Thev held fheviews they did because the tariff  had" hil Ihem so hard thai they had to turn to  the study of economics. The real class evil, he  said, was when one class became the. victim of  class selfishness, something which could nol be  charged against the Farmers.

"Tt would  ���������������������������y~om that the fashions of today, like some-other  evil hahMs j could mention, have come to make  a Jons? stay," said he. "When f ask wysejf what  is inspiring this tendency to nudity in women's  modern costumes, my answer is it cannot. hc a  rightful desire to promote the health of* our cjej>  utantes, because today's want of cJntbcs is sav-  -ageiy--exposing���������������������������them-=to^consumption=and=its  kindred ailments, not bv hundreds but by thousands. So I am assured bv competent authority.  Our girls, who ought to live to a ripe old age,  droop, drop, and die like flowers unfed bv  warmth and sunshine. Improperly fed and improperly dressed, thcy defy all the laws of hygiene, and down thcy go.  "Nor can thc object in nr^'ail'������������������������������������������������������������������������'���������������������������* fn������������������bions bc  a love of the true and thc beautiful, for never  did fashions so grcviouslv mililalc againsl Ibe  cannons of '-"*ot\ taste and tbe laws of svinnictry1'  Today's fashions arc bizarre, distorted, and  ridiculous. I cannot but arrive ot tbe conclusion that thev arc designed and cut not to drape  thc human form and keen it warm, beautiful,  and comfortable, but with the set rmvnoso of  awakening in man unholy desires, and perhaps  of fannina into fever flame those alreadv nn-  kindlcd. How such conduct can be defended it  is impossible for me as a Christian man to conjecture. Personally, I feel quite sure tbat  studied immodesty on the part of girls defeats  it own ends. A decent man who intends to marrv  a girl and make ber tbe oueen of bis heart and  the mistress of bis home is not going to choose  for his partner 'till death do tbem oart' a girl  wbo has so little self-respect that shc does not  even know how to elothe herself in decencv.  He mav toy with hcr, but his wife she never will  be. My experience goes to prove that reallv  happy and fruitful marriages are made between  those who have esteem and reverence each for  each, with the result that when the fires of passion burn out there yet remains a reverential  love which age will not kill or quench.   We are  all too heavily handicapped in the race of life  to.run vice against virtue. Vice is a weed to be  tossed "on the dunghill; love is the bloom worn  next to the heart. Wfy advice to girls is this:  Press to keep cjry, warm, and comfortable, and  prove to the other sex that you have a self-  knowledge, a sclf-revcrcncc, and a self-control  which forbid you to offend God by defying the  laws iwhich he has set up for your protection,  vour welfare, and your happiness here and hereafter."  Where the Power Goes  What a boon it would he if somebody would  discover bow to utilize the heat from the engine  of the automobile���������������������������utlilzc it in connection with  driving the car. Power is but a form of beat. A  gallon of gasoline contains sufficient energy to  raise the temperature of 100 gallons of watcr  from 62 degrees to the boiling point. Those of  us who have watched a kettle of water heating  on a gas stove will be able to obtain somc idea of  the tremendous energy stored in four quarts of  liquid which is helping to "move thc world."  Put all of this energy contained in a gallon of  gasoline is not available for power at the rear-  wheels. If it were, milages of from 100 to 200  on a gallon of fuel would be as common as arc  those of 10 to 20 loday. Sufficient heat to bring  40 gallons of watcr from normal temperature  to the boiling point is lost in the cooling system  of the average automobile; the heat required to  bring 25 gallons of watcr to thc boiling point is  lost through the radiation of the engine under  the hood, and on a warm day goes toward making the driver's compartment more or less uncomfortable; and an equal amount of encrgv,  sufficient to boil another 25 gallons of watcr, is  wasted in the form of the heat of the exhaust  gas.  It begins to look as if the real menace of world  peace is not Germany nor the Bolshevik of  Russia rior the Turks of Constantinople, but the  underground diplomats that linger over thc  Entente peace table.  OBITUARY  Rev.   John   Leech-Porter  The death of Rev. John Leech-  Porter, -recto^r of St. Michael's  Church, at Guelph.Onit., on Monday,  March 1st, robbed Grenfell of one  of her most honored and respected  citizens, and the d.iocese of Qu'Appelle of one of its most worthy  members.  Rev. Le!ech_Po,rter was born at  Studley, Eng., the third son of Rev.  John H. Leech-Porter, who was for  many years rector of St. John's  Lady wood, Edgbaston, near Birmingham. For a number of years he  attended King William's College,  Isle of Man, where he won several  scholarships. He was a brilliant  student 'and won the honor of  standing at the head of the college  fcr three years. Later he was a  mathematical scholar ' at Jesus  College,  Cambridge.  He then came to the United  States, where he* held a number of  important professorships, being for  several years head master of St.  Paul's school for boys, Concord,  Rev. Leech-Porter came to Canada  17 years ago to take a position as  teacher in the Western Canada  College, Calgary. A year later he  commenced Parish duty at La*.  com.be. It was at tbis time that he  married Miss Jean Allan McKenz-ie,  of Cold-home; Alvah, DanffsMre,  Scotland, then nursing in -Dr.Brett's  Hospital at Banff, Alta. Of this  urJ\ion two 'sons were born. Jack,  now a lad qf 14, and Leslie, who  died  an infant.  Rev.. LeechJPortQr lhas since  served as rector at Greenwood, Enderby, Buffalo Lake and for the  past three years, "at^Grenfell. During these three years Tie has won  an enviable position in the hearts  of the people of'the whole district,  as   well   as  of  bis  ow-n   church," not  C ; * r  only by his splendid scholarship,  but by his unselfish devotion to the  work of the parish; His unflagging  ze?.l in caring for - those who suffered from influenza during the epidemic 1 ast"year until he.was himself  stricken, ' oinly. to 'go on with .his  good work before he was physically  fit to do so, will long be gratefully  remembered by _tbose who benefitted by the timely aid of himself and  M  his  equally ,unselfish   wife.  He is survived by one brother,  Hastings, of London, Ont., and two  sisters and two aged aunts who live  in  England.  Rev. Leech-Porter never fully recovered from the flu, which Culminated in a nervous break-down  last July. Since then he has not  been well, but in spite of Jiis poor  health, continued his duties as rector until three weeks ago when he  went to Guelpl to the Sanatorium.  On the way down he unfortunately  froze* his feet and his right hand,  which resulted in septicemia. This  in turm affected his heait and  caused  h.is death.

We often hear the  expression, "the busy bee," but unless we busy ourselves "with, the  bees, we cannot hope for success.  Beekeeping is conducted to a  small extent at the Dominion Experimental Station, Invermere, B.C.  A few colonies are kept and accurate data collected annually, on the  various methods of wintering, summer care and. management, and  other experimental work in connection with bees. A short resume of  the work of the past year will no  doubt be of interest, not only to the  prospective beekeeper but to those  already  engaged   in  the  business.  The apiary rtumibered ten colonies in the fall of 1918. Two colonies ' were wintered in the cellar,  four in a trench, two in a double  winter cases.,. The bees wintered-"  wintering cases. The beese wintered  outside proved by far tlve strongest .  in the spring; while three of the  colonies wintered in the trench  died as the result of too much  moisture. Prom, the seven colonies  that were left 885 pounds of extracted honey was produced, or an  average of .126.4 pounds per colony.  The strongest colony produced In  the season 234.5 pounds of extracted honey. This honey was sold at  33 cents per pound, and for the  convenience of the customers was  ;put up in 5_lb containers, which  sold at. $1.75. The total value of  extracted honey was $292.05, or  the average value per colony being  $41.72. The number of. colonies  was also increased from-seven to.  11, each colony being valued at $7,  .not including Tiive. In September  180 pounds of sugar syrup was fed, "  valued at $23.40.

A  pROFIT-WTO   Sip-PMNIB  ReeKcepiim   One   of   the   Most   Productive    lirandics    for    Parmer  According to a" report in Experimental Farm Notes, beekeeping i's  becoming >mop������������������ commercialized,  largely because, like all other  branches of agriculture, it is being  looked upon as a science or art.  Still there is an opportunity for  the amateur or the farmer to make  a success with a few' colonies of  bees merely as a sideline. Bees,  like all live-stock, need attention,  and often because this attention is  small it is neglected. The many  minor details which go to make up  success in getting maximum honey  yields cannot be obtained by reading, nor can information be bought  with the apiary. A small beginning  is strongly advised,, and as the  novice grows in experience the colonies may be increased. The care of  bees is not suited to all people, and  unless a person has a special aptitude or inclination that way, he  should not branch out into this line.  To carry on beekeeping with interest and' profit requires, the intimate  study of the bees and a knowledge  A. #eeve������������������  Pruggist and Stationer.

It "is commonly conceded that,  for seme reason or other European-  grown seed of field roots is superior  in respect to root crop producing  ability, to .seed raised in Canada.  Tn order ,to investigate this assertion, which, were it true, naturally  would prevent Canada from becoming a root-seed growing country of  impoirtance, several iexperiments  havc heen undertaken during the  last few years.  In 1910. seed of a few varieties  of mang'les and- Swede turnips  raised the previous year by the Dominion Experimental Farms' System was tested in comparison with  seed of the same varieties obtained  commercially. The results of the  experiments strongly indicated thai,  the Canadian-grown seed was fully  capable of competing with the  commercial seed, which latter had  been imported from Europe, in respect to crop-producin-g power. In  fact in some instances the Canadian  grown seed proved ��������������������������� decidedly  superior.  Jn 1919, a very large number of  varieties of field roots were tested.  The majority were grown from ordinary seed, of commerce, and the  balance from seed produced at the  Experimental Farms in 191S. Although complete reports at the time  of writing, have not been 'received,  a few remarks on. the comparative  value in general of the Canadian-  grown and the imported seed may  be offered, particularly as the results obtained clearly demonstrate  on what the crop producing value  of root seed  largely depends.  Most of tlie crops from the commercial, i.s. imported- seed, proved  .rather unsatisfactory in as much as  the roots were greatly lacking in  .uniformity "and . smoothness. Tn a  large number of cases the so-called  varieties" were composed of,all kinds  of types, in fact, often to such a  degree that the type which a certain  vnriciy was' supposed to represent,  could -hardly   be   recognized:  The  crops  of tlie  Canadian-grown  seed    were    on     ihe    whole  -better.  Outstandingly   good   were   the   crops  tiown   from   seed   which   had   been  raised     by   the   Dominion     Experi_-  "mental     Farm    from     roots   ��������������������������� representing     improved     varieties,     i.   e.  varieties which  for a few. years have  been   subjected   to   a. rigorous  selection.    ��������������������������� Tn   other   words,   the   importance  of  selection   was   unmistakably  demonstrated.   Applying   the   results  to   practical   root   seed    growing,  it  follows,  then,  that,  in  order to  gain  a  reputation  ns a reliable seed  producer,   the    grower    must    base    his  seed  growing on  very careful  selection      Growing  of  seed   from   ordin.  a-.v  rno'    crops    Without   careful  se.  lection   ,vill   never lead   to -profitable  results.

On   the other  h?nd,   it.  is  a   comparatively   easy   matter   for  anyone    who    takes    tlie   trouble   to  select only  the very best roots, uniform in shape and  color,  to develop  a   variety   .superior Mo   the   ordinary  commercial   variety   from   wliich   the  selection  is  being  made.

THURSDAY, MARCH 18, 1920  A MUCH DISCUSSED TOPIC  Mr. Editor: Dear Sir: The season  has arrived when roads are at their j  worst,- and it should be a suitable '  time to discuss road matters, ��������������������������� and  if anything could be said or written  to rouse the people from their  ���������������������������apathy regarding municipal affairs  the discussion would not be in vain.  Our roads are so constructed that  during the season rain makes most  of  them  of  little  use to  the public.  "A chain is as strong.as its'weakest- link," and a road is of benefit  compared' with what load .can be  hauled  over  its  worst  part.  A farmer was hauling to town 4 5 ;  sacks  per  load.

The feature of the evening was Prof.  Stone's violin playing and compositions. The audience appreciated  every number, and to all it was  clearly 'evident that the performer  is a master of tone, technique and  double-stopping, as well as being a  very  sympathetic  player.  tA the finish of the program the  Professor played a duet on the violin.

ALLISON,  mll-tf Armstrong  -YOU  RFQUTRF  GLASSES  or  -YOU   REQUIRE   DIFFERENT CLASSES  Tf your eye's are in perfect condition, or if you are wearing  the proper glasses to remedy a refractive error, you should  not suffer pains in the eyes, nor "eye-dizziness" nor "eye_ner_  vousness."  Don't allow anyone to tell you that you are obliged to continue suffering these things if you are wearing glasses. Sometimes, after the proper glasses have been fitted to the eyes,  there will be. temporary discomfort. But that is for a .short  time only���������������������������until tho eye accomunodates itself to tho new  ���������������������������refractive condition.  Tf  you  continue to suffer, you  have not been properly fitted.  have   the   wrong   glasses.     Yon  From perfect eyes, or eyes made perfect by the proper glasses  you  can expect:  ���������������������������Clear and  distinct vision "for all distances.  i���������������������������A natural, restful  feeling in yom- eyes at. all times.  ���������������������������Fnlire-'absence of strain.  ���������������������������The ability to read or do closs work  for long periods  with.  ..   out discomfort.  ���������������������������Freedom   from   dizziness   and eye-headaches.  I do not say that although you may see perfectly you do not  require glasses ground and fitted for you by an expert, because there are some phases of eye trouble which, although  causing roganic derangements through the nervous system, do  not  reveal themselves  by  defective' vision.  But you  may be sure tlvat iT you  or your  classes  are  to blame.  do suffer like this  your eyes  Tf your eyes are to blame allow me to fit you with, the proper  glasses. If your glasses are to blame allow me to tell you  what is wrong and how the error may be remedied. Permit  me to check up your correction.  Nicolas A. Kaury  EYE SPECIALIST ARMSTRONG
