Subscription, $13 a year  HOSPITAL   IMPROVEMENTS  Three New Wards Soon will be Ready  ���������������������������Mr.   Hawkins   Now  Certain   the  Cost will  not Overrun  Estimate  HANDSOMELY    REMEMBERED  The weather of the last month has  been most favorable, and work on  tho Enderby Hospital addition-, has  progressed Very satisfactorily. Mr.  Jlawlcins, chairman of the Hospital  Board, has given his personal attention to the work, his object being to  complete the addition and clean it jip  at a cost not to exceed the amount  subscribed by bhe people of the district in 'the hospital "drive" undertaken early in the season. He is now  confident he will be able to do so.  When the question was under discussion oy the Board a month ago,  ��������������������������� <-  and the cost of lumber and labor was  considered, the fear was expressed of  not being able-to carry it through on  the $2,000 on hand for the purpose.  The matter was placed before Mr.  Marley and Mr. Rogers of the Okanagan SaAV Mills, and these-- gentlemen, .on behalf of the company, assured the Board, thai the "company  would do" the right thing. This the  company has more than done, giving  a discount of 40 per cent' on the total  lumber bifl. The total amount of the  lumber account will not be"known for  a week or two yet, but Mr. Hawkins  assures us that, through the liberality  of the Okanagan Sawmills and its  generous treatment throughout, he is  now certain the cost will be kept  within the amount raised for the purpose, and the new wards will be  turned over all paid for.

The death of Mrs. Rohson removes  from our midst a personality much  esteemed by all who knew her.  We understand it is the intention  of her daughter, Miss Robson, to remain here, while "Miss Seymour will  return" to England in a few weeks.  Resolution of Regret  At the close of the sermon in the  Methodist Church last Sunday evening,, Capt. Rev. Gibson stated that  a very pleasant duty rested upon him,  tliat of calling upon one of the piem-  bors of the quarterly board, Mr.  Smedley, to read a resolution expressing regret at the departure from  Enderby of the Rev. Mr. Gretton. The  congregation desired to express their  keen appreciation of the services he  had rendered to the community and  especially to the Methodist Church.  The resolution was seconded by Mr.  Hartry : and the congregation expressed their approval by a standing  vote.  rod.

DICKSON  Bell Block Enderby  To preach peace where there is no peace requires some courage, but it is easier to do it sitting in an easy chair beside a bright fire, than at  a street corner Co a hungry mob. ���������������������������  It is true that tlie larger part of the world's  population "is going quietly on with it's business  and vocations, it's recreations-and it's, repose."  But, it' is true also that ^revolutionary fires arc  burning in nearly every country in Europe, that  revolution is being discussed, and morc or less  secretly planned in every large cily in thc United  Stales, and -that1 il has been atlempted openly,  on al least' one occasion in this, our own beloved  Canada. ������������������This-, not to mention China, 'Japan, India, Persia and other Asiatic countries, where  social unrest more or less chronic, prevails.  To refer lo such a condition of things, to discuss it's causes, lo suggest, or attempt, to suggest  means towards its. cure, to speculate as to thc  final cu Iconic of il all docs not imply hysteria,  as somc good people would have us believe.  Rather, nol t'o be in teres led1 in such a state of  things, nol to recognize its importance and to  sense its bearings upon human society as a whole  would seem to point tp a state of mind which,  in its aloofness, is morc in harmony wilh the  atmosphere of the cloisters, or of the hermits'  cell, lhan wilh thc hurry and bustle of ordinary,  everyday life. . .  To preacli peace one must be assured that  peace is wilhin reach, and lhat condilions exist,  or can be brought aboul, in which peace can be  main tained. Even the Prince of Peace,-speaking  to the circumstances of his day, said:. "I come  not to send peace, but a sword."  What is-gaincd if preachers proclaim a gospel  of peace while whole classes of societ}' are preying and being allowed unmolested, to'prey upon  other classes,. How will "calm and assured  language" allay passion and -resentment, or  "bring healing and reconciliation" if. the evils  that have aroused passion are studiously ig-  norcd? John the Baptist Svas a preacher also.  Mis view.of. thc peace-dream was that.repentance  and restitution must come before peace caiv.be  assured. '..,-..  -Certainly the limes are ripe for reformers-to  appeal-.to reason, and to conscience. But those  appeals ought to, be directed: .towards the men  who have slain reason and debauched conscience.  , Have reforms ever been accomplished against  active opposition, without, vigorous language  having been used, aiukstrcrig protests made?  Just Tiecnusc the. larger part of the'population  -must--.earn its bread, and ��������������������������� therefore, - niust go  cruiclly- on wilh their business, those who are ac-;  tiv'c .in promoting reforms mustVict, the more  .-hVnuously in all-that'they do. ���������������������������'       .  The quiescence of a majority of the people  does not argue indifference however.,. As well  say that the French peasantry, who carried.on  their usual avocations during,the war, oven wilhin' the zone of shell-lire, were indifferent1 to the  result of the fighting. Tlie fact is1 that at "the  present time, no questions are sb frequently or  so keenly discussed  amongst  ordinary    people,  wherever they meet, than just those questions  which cerlain persons would have us believe to  bc cither the product or the cause of hysteria.  No amount of, screaming newspaper headlines  can account for this. The truth is that revolu-  tionarjr. ideas do not appeal to the average mind  except * when they bear directly upon exis ting  conditions that are essentially and unmistakably  evil. *   ���������������������������  Wherc such conditions indisputably do exist,  as a I present, preaching of peace becomes futile,  and in effect .evil; for it is merely a hindrance  and an obstacle in the pathway of ,, ihosc who  would accomplish reforms.  Of course, there are those who arc satisfied  with things as they are, because thcy themselves  arc the direct beneficiaries of the syslcm. Tt is in  the interest of all such Ilia I preaching of peace  should be maintained. But others, who arc less  well placed, naturally think differently.  Revolution does not necessarily mean bloodshed and disorders���������������������������or even hysteria, but it certainly does mean the facing of facts as thcy arc.  To" blindly ignore what is patent to the "whole  world, excepting those who arc self-deceived, is  neither wise nor kindly, nor helpful. Every well-  meaning, every wise, every realty good man  ought to hc on the side of progress, of righteousness and justice. A society that is not based  upon these can neither be. stable, restful nor  happy.���������������������������B. C. Veteran.    "  in  Put, in your order for anything you want in this line  GEO. R.

Otherwise there would be very, little  pork- produced." ."Why can a few hogs ���������������������������  he'  raised   comparatively   cheaply-  on-  the farm? Simply" because of the fact  that .a considerable proportion of the '  feed is in the nature of a by-product  or   perhaps   ' home-grown.'

Train at Kootenay Landing Connecting   With the Steamer Nasookm, From Nelson.  The trade travel and exploration  of, thc Kootenay are a romance of  progress. The day of the fur trader  gave way to that of the placer-miner.  In passing, thc placer-miner left beside his trail of rocker, and sluice,  shaft and drill, a still deeper mark  on the country and its future. He  Stayed long enough to make history.  The Tcad Mines, near Nelson, discovered in 1888, saw a great stampede. The discovery of the Silver  King Mine, ahout 1887 hy Hall Brothers, and Its development, was the  beginning of Nelson, and following  the arrival of the miners, a townsite  was laid out.  Tho Granite Foor Man Mine, developed as a gold mine, waa first  worked by Lincoln Davenport in  1889. He built the first stamp mill  and the whole was in operation  about 25 yearB and produced an immense amount o.f gofO.   The "Molly  Gibson," twelve miles north of Nelson, a silver lead mine was developed  on a large scale and is owned and  operated by a Trail enterprise. The  "Alnsworth." on the main Kootenay  Lake, 28 miles north of. Nelson, is  one of the first developed mining  camps, dating back to 1885 and opened by Mr. Ainsworth, This its a free  silver mining district and has natural hot springs. A visit to the  Board of Trade rooms in Nelson is of  interest. Typical of the district, attractive ore exhibit cases line the  walls and tell of the local mineral riches., There are specimens  from Slocan City, Ymir, Lardeau,  Boundary, Sheep Creek, Fort Steele,  East Kootenay, and there are smelter  products from Trail. Fort Steele is  of historical interest, as one of the  oldest towns ln the province. Old-  timers even claim that It put British  Columbia on the map. It was named  after the late Major-Genera! Sli  Samuel Steele, who commanded th������������������  North West Mounted Police in-Western Canada for many years. A detachment of Mounted Police waa  stationed there ln the early days and  the barracks still remain. In 1864,  it was the scene of one of the most  phenomenal gold rushes In WstoryJ  and, ln leas than two years, many  millions of gold, were taken ont of  Wild Horse Creek. Many big game  parties outfit there before proceeding on hunting expeditions.

So  with  the  farm  flock of poultry.  Vhat shall we feed hogs? Grain,  mill feeds and by-product feeds are  becoming scarcer than ever. ^ Wheat  by-products arc practically off tht  market. ' The feed markets of the future are most 'discouraging in pros*  pect. The wholesale price of hogs  lias not appreciated correspondingly.  The man who can feed hogs profitably today must ihavo a comparatively cheap product or by-product to replace meal ar. largely as possible.  Such are scarce. Milk products form  tho greatest of all. City ancl 'hotel  refuse is" another. Green feed intelligently used, soiled or under tho right  conditions, pastured, is a third. Barley is one of the best of Canadian  hog feeds ��������������������������� too little appreciated.  Elevator screenings, if of standard  quality, must be utilized wherever  available. The man who is raising  young pigs, who plans to feed them  lrnont entirely on a grain ration,  who has little or no milk - or green"  feed available, will almost certainly  be forced to place a high valuation  on manure and- experience if he is to  get an even break next fall.���������������������������G.

Murray  in     Farm  Home gives this good advice:  It is the day of the weekly paper.  All the world is getting down to  business. Waste is being eliminated,  wages ace going up, costs arc going  up. Shortage of newsprint is going  to work a great change iu the nows-  our i paper  husiness.4  and   kindness   shown    to   us   hy   our  "friends     and'   neighbors    during    thej or.;   attacked  past  few days.    We shall  not  forget  how   thcy   lightened   our   trouble   and ,      , .  . .  the memorv of it will be with us for (suspicion.   Everything around a  Years   ago,   newspapers     slammed j,  each  other over politics.    Rival  odit-  eae.h   other.     Nowadays  papers   view   politicians     with  news-  Development of agricultural science.  Improvement  of  markets,  r.uilcling _of better,roads.  '  Extension   of -rural   health   centres.  Improvement   cf   educational, facilities for the country districts..    -  Today   space   which   was   once   devoted   to   articles   attacking;   political  opponents   has c heen   reclaimed     for  such' good   work  as  thc  advocacy of  breeding of  pure-bred   stock.    Where  tho weekly press once delved  in the  political   field,  intelligent  and   serious  minded   newspapermen   are  today  demoting   their'literary  talents   to   such  subjects as  the more extensive cultivation  of the  field  in  which  Teed  for  man and beast is thc harvest.  I    You will look in vain in a city daily  for  articles  on  such' subjects  as  potatoes and hogs and apples and beef;1  but the average weekly paper devotes  ;most of. its'space to articles upon the  ! cultivation  of soil  und  the intelligent  , production,   marketing   and   manufac-  ! ture   of   these   vital  , necessities     of  mankind.  They keep down near to the hearts  I of the people, do the weekly papers,  and near to the earth. Their editors  speak in a language all of us can understand. '  If there are among editors today  leaders ol! public opinion, you will  find a higher percentage .of them  among tho men of the weekly press.  Free from the entangling influences  cf the great cities, aloof- from sordid  commercialism, their expressions are  tuore likely to be those of free and  unbiased thinkers and observers who  :trc each clay in personal touch with  tho men and women of tlie community.  the rest of our lives.
