These people had to learn how to  grow fruit; they had the money, but lacked the  experience. Naturally many failed, and for a  time Mr. Robinson had to bear the brunt of their  failures. He had the vision of "what the Okanagan could and would bc made, but could not  supply ambition, experience and vision with  the land hc sold. As is always the case, men  failed, then sought to find somebody or something upon whom or which to thrust thc blame.  .1. M. Robinson was big enough lo know this.  Me did not scold. Hc did not weaken. He slood.  To-day he is a man older under lhc hal, but as  youthful and penetrating in thought and initiative as ever, and hc looks with joy and nol a lillle  pride on the development of thc district founded  Ijy him. Men arc making money; beautiful  homes are made and in the making; an induslry  of magnitude is building up. The Okanagan is  arriving. He has seen his dream come true, nol  in full but in part.

STUNG  AGAIN?  Why Fear Soviet Russia  According to Leon Trotsky Bolshevism is becoming morc powerful than ever and will soon  spread to other countries. "In a year," hc is  rcpcrl'cd as saying, "all Europe will bc Bolshevik."  Thcrc is "good reason to believe that Trotsky,  Russia's; Minister of war, speaks truly of conditions in Europe. And it is becoming morc apparent every day that thc growth ol* Bolshevism,  which is nothing worse lhan thc rule of thc people, is not confined to Europe. It is felt here in  America, and will be. But what is lhere lo be  afraid of from thc people of lhis or any country?  Governments of the proletariat may make mistakes just as governments of thc ruling class.  Bul thc3r will right themsclve. Unless provoked  beyond all reason, lhc common people of any  country seldom _ lake ext'reme measures. But  protect themselves thcy will, and thcy have  learned how.

Knowing One's Costs    0  "Lasl week the printers and publishers of thc  Okanagan discovered something. It was shown  ihem by Mr. Conrad, an expert printer's cost-  finding man sent ou 1������������������by thc United T\Tpothetae  of America, employed by them, that their prices  for doing job printing were loo low, and that in  Ihc year 1919 lhcy made a profit of only'5 per  cent" instead of 2o per cent, the standard profit  recognized and demanded as the proper profit  over and above cost, sel by thc master printers  of America.  ft was nol. pleasant news, bul lhc discovery  will prove mosl beneficial, not only for thc printers, bul for lhc communities in which their  printing plants are situated.

Tn the speeches hc has made since becoming  Premier, hc has made his remarks clean-cut and  definite; he has expressed his convictions, recognizing thc difficulties Canada is facing, yet al the  same lime slating what hc believes1 to hc a safe  way out. Sir Arthur Meighen is a man to bc  trusted lo work oul any policy he foi-imilalcs.  He is nol afraid of an idea, and- if wc arc to  judge by his speeches, he is not afraid to stand  firm for the policy of protection for revenue  only.

There is the probability, loo.-thai lhe Liberals and Great War  Veterans will have candidates in  lhc running.  Looking for Property  Mr. F. C. Haycock was a visitor of Enderby  on Monday. Mr. Haycock was looking for farm  properly for sale. Hc lold the Commoner that  lie is doing an extensive real estate business in  the sale of farm lands lo sclllers from the Northwest, who arc coming in to look over the country  and arc buying lands all over the District and  making good. Mr. Haycock hopes to get a list  of Enderby and districl properties thai he ��������������������������� may  list. He will endeavor lo keep in close touch  with lhc dislrict. Many enquiries are being received by him relating to properties, in this locality, and hc would like to havc a listing of all  farm land available, for sale.  Thirteen hundred dollars was paid for a four  and a, half acre farm recently at Creston, B. C.  constituting another record price in lhis district.
