F. hall last  Thursday evening by local talent  proved a great success, both financially and socially.  AU taking part were given an Interested hearing and the many numbers, musical and otherwise, won  generous applause, and we regret that  we are not permitted to give more  extended  notice to each item.  Perhaps the most pleasing features  of the program were the singing by  little Miss Lai ge, and the duet by-  Miss Broom and Mr. Glen; the violin  solo by Mr. C. Rosoman of Mara ahd  the Hawaiian guitar numbers by Mr.  George Wells. Mr. J. E. Gilders also  gave several humorous sketches  which  were much appreciated.  Following the program refreshments were served and then the floor  was cleared for dancing which was  enjoyed for a few .hours, Messrs.  Rosoman and Wells supplying the  music.  Miss Seymour left for England last  Friday, expecting to be away for two  years. Miss Seymour has a ��������������������������� warm  place in her'heart for Enderby and  district and hopes to return as soon  as she can close up the business she  is going home to attend to.  ��������������������������� A meeting of the Enderby Curling  Club for reorganization was held Friday evening.

The national debt of Canada was-  reduced by $2,634,256 last'month owing to the expanding revenues. During the first seven months of the fiscal  year ending October 31, ordinary revenue was as follows: 1920, $255,576,-  967; 1919, $186,408,795; or an increase  of revenue of $7.6,168,172.  During the week'the, Canadian Pacific Ocean Services put up a record  for the St. Lawrence with six big  ocean liners, with approximately 5,000  passengers, en route to Canada simultaneously. It is stated that no other  company has ever had this number  of liners making the westbound trip  to Canada at the one time.  The Okanagan Telephone Company  this week issued the, November directory.': It is more compactly built than  any of the previous numbers, and  shows a distinct advance in point of  typography and accessibility. It is  what might be termed a regular utility number; built for wear and economy of space and time. The large  number of names added under the  various exchanges indicates the substantial growth, in\,business in the  Okanagan.  The Telephone Directory.

Mr. Dodds, a returned soldier, with  .his family, moved on to the "James"  homestead last week, which place he  just recently purchased.  Another homestead has just been  recently taken up west of the Parker,  Turnbull and Murray ranch, in Deep  Creek, considerable slashing already  being   done.  Mr. Roland Hill is busy these days  with his engine and grain crusher, at  present crushing grain on the George  Parkinson   place,' Hullcar.  The Hullcar school entertainment  will be held in the hall on Friday  evening, December 17th.

"Hunter"  steamer-tug-plied on Slocan Lake,  from Roseberry to Slocan City. It  was not speedy, nor was it built to  carry a large passenger list. It was  one of those steamships, that have to  stop the machinery to blow the  whistle. Bufit served the traffic. It  wasn't much to look at, but it delivered the goods, and, storm or shine,  it got there.  gram.  350,000  was  loaned   by  the  ment  and  $550,000  by banks  are  now   5i_   rural   credit  societies   in  the province of which 20 have been  organized  this  year.  ____________ ������������������  Canadian farmers no longer depend  upon haphazard methods of keeping  accounts; they have taken vigorously  to bookkeeping and a. business system  of keeping track of profit and loss.  This is indicated by the fact that' 20,-  000 farmers' account books have been  supplied to Canadian agriculturists  by the Commission of Conservation  for the purpose of keeping records of  farm accounts.

Pat w;as caught by the Holy Father  eating sausage on Friday and by way  of penance be was ordered to deliver to the Holy Father's home a  load of wood.  A few days later Pat drove up to  the basement window ' and was industriously shovelling a load of sawdust into the fuel chute.  The Holy Father rushed out by the  side door and remonstrated with Pat.  "Tut, tut, man; J-ordered you to  bring wood,  not sawdust."  "Well noo," replied Pat, "If sawdust isn't wood, then sausage isn't  meat���������������������������an*. _why_ should_ol_ be payln'  penance?"  ROADS WITHOUT RUTS.  "Please do not drive in ruts." Signs  carrying this message are posted  along many Michigan gravel roads  and are aiding in keeping them in  good condition. Motorists heed the  injunction and as a result the roads  retain an even surface. Ruts made  by one car are ironed out by the next.  Thus both roads and tires are saved.

If any lesson is to bc learned Irom thc Provincial elections just held il is this: That thc cilics  ca'n outvote tlie country, and lhat thc cities do not  like. Independent candidates. Whether this is a  good omen or a bad it matters little.. The fact  remains that thc urban vote in every instance  went against thc rural anti United Farmer candidates were beaten though leading in thc vote  in nearly every polling place in thc riding.  In the North Okanagan thc result particularly  illustrates this point. Laidman, the'Farmer candidate was the winner but for the Vernon vote.  MacDonald's majorily there was 435, two hundred morc than the majority hc was elected by.  The Vernon vote is not a party vole. This is  indicated by thc fact that only two weeks previous Mr. MacKelvie, thc Conservative nominee in  the Federal byc-clection, was given a Vernon majority of 364,* which --was onc hundred more lhan  the majority by which hc won out.  .-A vote as heavy as thc Vcmon vote that will  swing from a Conservative majority of 3(34 to a  Liberal majorily oJ* 435 in two weeks' time is a  problem lo be reckoned with Which would tax  thc resources of politicians of far greater experience than any the, United Farmers have yet discovered. , ���������������������������     '  In Yale riding MacKelvie (Conervativc) lost in  thc counlry.and won in the city in thc Federal  election, and in thc Provincial election, covering  much of the same territory, MacDonald (Liberal)  nosed put by a majority scarcely half so large as  was given him by the one city.  If these facts prove anything it seems clear that  despite all wc have beard from Premier Mcighcn  down about a rising storm _ig_.in.si the old parlies,  the old parlies arc still very much alive and are  still the dominant factor in our poli tics., whether  national or provincial.  Thc urban vole will control in British Columbia lor a long time yet, and' this will bc thrown  from onc party to the other���������������������������any way to defeat  thc new party or no parly candidate.  prance and Constantinc  There is no reason to suppose that Mr. Lloyd  George has any more confidence than the Premier of France in Constantinc of Greece. In thc  days when Constantinc was in the pay of Berlin  and was acting as the agent of Germany he professed to be neutral. \l is his interest now to say  that hc will carry out the policy of Venize|os. Jt  will bc to his interest to profess friendship with  the Allies so long as he expects Britain to finance  his kingdom! Until Germany gets on her feet  again it would bc folly for Constantinc to emphasize his relations with that nation. His cor-  " res |3dWitffTCtTwi tlrtterriilf ny^vill^grr^oir^i11 l*=lhc-  ������������������amc. Knowing Constantinc and remembering  what happened' in Athens when lie was king,  Great Britain and France havc onc common opinion of his character and his loyalty. They will  probably reach some ground of action in respect  to Greece. That course will probably bc a cold  neutrality. Greece, under Constantinc will be  left to fight her ow',. battles with her veighbors.  She will e.slablisli her own credit and will have to  appeal to the League of Nalions to assist in the  establishment of her boundary with Turkey and  olher countries. Shc litis chosen Constantinc. To  Constantinc let her go.���������������������������Vancouver Province.  Industrial Conditions Darkening.  There are over two million persons out of work  throughout the United States today. Prices are  being ripped, wages slashed, men thrown out of  factories in thousands. What this means for the  workers is not merely a winter of unemployment  with its attendant poverty, homelessness and  breadlines, but the loss of standards toilsomely  Won during the war and since.  Canada is faced with the same conditions.  Every city no matter* what the size has its hundreds and thousands of unemployed.  Great Britain is faced with an unemployed situation that has created despair in thc homes of  millions. Workmen are forcibly taking possession of public buildings in London and vicinity.  An eight-foot baracade has been erected around  the Parliament buildings which forbids approach,  proach.  Europe is almost beyond human aid for its  starving and workless millions, and thc appeal  for aid is coming from various sources overseas.  All of which must bring thc world to its sober  senses quickly. Thc fool's paiadise wc havc been  living in since the war ceased is coming to an end.  Men "and women are beginning to realize that  thev must face realities, and1 thc first reality is the  problem! of getting something to cat and wear.  Wc may yet have to pass through dark days, but  if wc keep bravely on,.honestly facing thc everyday problems cheerfully and with balance, we  need have no fear of the outcome.  What Millionaires Excite.  Rich men arc finding today morc than ever before that enormous wealth does not bring happiness and lhal the best way to get fun oul of money  i.s to use il freely for unselfish purposes. The  possession of millions is no longer a distinction.  Indeed, unless the possessor of millions uses part  of them for worthy objects, his wealth excites  .something very different from admrration. And  the first thing it excites is thc income tax collector who demands $600,000 as the State's annual  share of each million possessed.  Stand firm like a rock, against which, though  the waves batter, vet it stands unmoved and they  fall to rest at lasl. "How unfortunate has this  accident made me." criest such an onc. Not at  all. He should rather say: "What a happy mortal am I for being unconcerned upon this occasion���������������������������for being neither crushed by thc present,  nor afraid of what is to come!"-Marcus Aurelius.  Storms Are Usually Worst Before They Pass.  When everything goes wrong, thc Bible oftentimes can supply us with-consolation. Onc text  which many of us could profitably meditate on  loday is: "Sorrow laslcth for a night. Joy cometh  in tlie morning." Thcrc is much anguish in thc  business world at this moment. Falling pi'iccs,  cancelled orders, diminishing sales, maturing obligations, credit scarcity, commercial failures, unemployment, pessimism���������������������������all these arc being experienced daily. However, indications increase  lhat' we ar^ now at or nearing the mrdnight hour  of our night of gloom, and that daylight will  shortly dawn. Leading bankers, I find, almost all  agree that the worst has already befallen. They  don't look for immediate recovery; thcy expect  the unscttlcmenl to last until thc turn of the year,  wilh, however, incipient manifcsitations of firmness here and there, and then a distinct revival  verv early in thc new year. November usually  is the month of greatest monetary stringency.  While December may not' bring any appreciable  relief,' January is counted upon to do so. What  thc situation calls for is- not a renewal of credit  expansion or any other form of expansion, but  for orderly readjustment all along the line until  an equitable, stable price level has been established. This is exactly what wc are likely to experience. The winter months may be rather dark  but spring should bring cheerfulness. ��������������������������� forbes  Magazine.  Will The Government face It?  Is the Provincial government, making an honest effort to lend additional assistance to our  municipal and rural schools? The schoot tax in  Mara school district is as high as the general tax.  No doubt there are other school districts similarly  situated.  The school tax in Enderby is ahout 40 per cent  of the general tax collected.  \n the past vear or two provincial taxes have  been more than doubled. We are told this is  ncccssarv because the costs of administration arc  so much higher than thcy used to he. But it  should be noted that of the increased taxes  collected b������������������ tlie Province, none of the money is  Iri vcrTto =t IT^i ncfeascircos fs~of-schaoLupkecp VJrhc  same Provincial allowance���������������������������per teacher���������������������������is given todav as was given twenty ycars ago, though  teachers' salaries have increased 50 per cent and  100 per cent. What is not put up by thc government in this connection must be taken from thc  people of thc municipalities or school districts or  thc schools closed.   Is this fair?  Keep Wheels of Industry Moving.  If ever our present economic structure is ruthlessly torn down, thc cause is likely lo be unemployment. Thc amount of enforced seasonal idleness in this counlry is a grave reflection upon  lhe master minds of the, financial and business  communities. There is lacking among employers  a proper feeling of responsibility, a due realization of what they owe not only their employees  but thc nation. To allow unemployment to become extensive this winter will be extremely  dangerous. This is no time for each employer  to think onlv of himself and let others, suffer as  thcy mav. That selfish, shortsighted, unbusinesslike attitude has brought grave trouble to other  countries. If persisted in long enough and carried far enough, it would assuredly bring trouble  here also. Continuity of employment is a-problem'which should be exercising the minds ot  every employer and everv business association in  the United Stales. If if does not exercise the  minds of business men, it will probably be taken  out of their hands and handled by others less capable of effecting the desired results. It a million  men .who are willing to work cannot find work,  thcy are not at all likelv to go hungry submissively.��������������������������� B. C. Forbes.

J. F. MURRAY,  Post Office Inspector.  Postoffice Inspector's "Office, Vancouver, B. C, 19th November, 1920.  Do you know that if you marry tbe  enthusiasm In. your heart to .the optimism in your soul, the result will  be pleasure in your work and happiness in your life?  '*-������������������������������������������������������_All'..who"followed the speakers in  the recent caJmpaign at - the coast  through the columns of the press  will heartily agree-with ...the following  sentiments expressed by the Vancouver Province. Never have we had  so much filth dished up in any campaign as was put before the public  by the big guns and the little guns of  the two old parties in Vancouver and  Victoria.  But here is what the Province says:  "It would be a pleasant duty on the  closing day of the election contest to  congratulate the campaigners on the  manner ancl spirit , in which it ^yas  conducted. Such a compliment might  perhaps be paid to candidates and  principal speakers in certain constituencies remote from the chief centres,  of population and culture. Community pride provokes the wish that Vancouver could be presented as an example of dignified, courteous, instructive and inspiring discussion of broad  public issues. In a campaign where  the Premier and two former premiers,  the attorney-general and three former  occupants of that office were at home  it would gratify- local self-respect to  remember - hereafter that the debate,  though animated was not abusive;  though aggressive was not offensively  personal. The first, election under  equal suffrage would vindicate that  great reform, if the gentle and refining influence of women had softened  down party asperities and diffused  through the political controversy a  calm, benignant and charitable spirit.  "The candid historian will be~ compelled to testify that this has not happened. It can not be claimed that ln  Vancouver or Victoria or in most of  the political ���������������������������, centres where the  speeches were reported the discussion  has been raised to a high plane and  kept there. Leaders and followers  found themselves involved in a contest ofl destructive.- ciiticism, "hardly  relieved by any postive programme'.  Destructive criticism in a campaign  becomes personal, attack goes-on to  abuse, and;.that proceeds.to thJe.oper-,  atiorf described by the-defendant as  mud-slinging, or by' tbe^: assailant's  friends as scathing lebuke. Real or  imaginary offences, public and; private, recent and remote, trivial :and  vast, are-described and contradicted-  Premiers,. former premiers, future  premiers, statesmen of various grades  old politicians and new .ones;- -men  speakers and women- speakers cate-  goiically contradict "each other op  matters bf fact. So' it has been ih  British Columbia. " Has' there ever  been a local campaign In which so  many candidates- called each other  liars without softening down the  word? The term has become so common in the last few days that'it Is  hardly resented. ��������������������������� Time has been  when men fought duels for less.  CANADIAN   NEWS   IN   BRIEF.  A large tonnage of paper and pulp  is now being produced on the Northern British Columbia-.'-coast. The  Powell River plant is turning out  about 225 tons a day, the Ocean Falls,  250 tons of paper and pulp, the Swanson Bay plant, about 50 tons per day,  and the Beaver Cove plant, about 25  tons, of pulp a day. On Suatisno the  plant at Port Alice is also turning  out large quantities of pulp and paper.  *  Alberta's   coal   production   for   1920  will be 30 per cent in excess of that  of 1919, according to the estimate of  the Dominion Gevernment Mines  Branch. A total output of well over  6,500,000 tons Is expected by the end  of the.year as compared with 5,022,-  412 tons in 1919. There has already  been mined for. the nine months of  this year ending September 30th, a  total of 4,750,964 tons, the output for  September alone, being ,618,093 tons.  JC  There .are approximately 1,250,000  bushels of grain for export north. of  the Peace River���������������������������including districts  from Peace River, Dunvegan, Water-  hole and West���������������������������and 2.000,000 bushels  south of the Peace River, Including  the Grand Prairie and Spirit River  districts.  .*  A Calgary company is arranging to  pump salt "from wells located south  of Senlac, and has introduced constructing -materials and machinery  with the intention of extracting the  salt through evaporation methods.  Tractors-and wagons will be used to  transport the product to the railway,  and it is expected that it will be sold  In all western-towns. In the first instance,' the product will be used to  make cattle,' ice cream and coarse  salt, and in the future there are  plants for refining the" salt - for the  table purposes. Output in .the..first  instance will be around ten tons per  day.   'j;  ="'"- *  -.   Plans" for. the erection of a woollen  mill in Alberta are now 'being .maas  by a syndicate of Scottish woollen  manufacturers, who":' are" promoting  the Industry and have already purchased some equipment arid machinery. ^This will be,the first woollen  mill west of the Great Lakes, and its  Humorists are not all dead. Some  of them are offering to teach women  how to vote. ���������������������������Chattanooga News:  erection, it is expected, will give impetus to the sheep raising industry.  Board if Trade officials here claim  that the industrial census of Winnipeg for 1920 will show approximately  20 per cent increase on all lines of  development since 1918. At the time  of thei 1918 census, according to the  Bureau of Statistics, Winnipeg had  779 industries with a capitalization of  $S2,709.029, 19,181 employees, a payroll of $18,773,622, and an output of  $118,154,995.  HATS   OFF   TO   THE   OKANAGAN  GROWERS!  H. H. Stevens, M. P., has just come  back from the Okanagan. Seven or  eight years ago he saw the first carload of fruit ride along the rails to  a Canadian market. , This year 5400  cars of Okanagan fruit rode by rail  and by ship _ to markets of the five  continents. Here is the reason of the  expansion' given In Mr. Steven's  words:  "The Okanagan fruit industry represents a struggle for many years  on the part of^ the growers. These  men and women, have overcome almost unsurmountable obstacles, but  now have the finest fruit-growing  country on the continent. Nowhere  do we find a district where there_,are  so great possibilities. The extensive  development is simply an outcome of  the impetus of stick-to-itiveness of the  growers, a I look for a ..wonderful development during the next ten years."  ���������������������������Farm  and  Home.

The fact  that the animal Is to be fouad In  }>ract|cally every part of tbe Amer-  can continent, and that tbe pelt has  pold as high aa ten dollars, is sufficient to attract the attention of fur  farmers and Induca a study1 into tbe  feasibility aud advantages of tbe industry.  Many years ago Ernest Thompson  Seton, tbe well kjtown natura writer  and naturalist to the Manitoba Government, advocated a more extensive artificial propagation of the  Ikunk, and himself operated a most  successful ranch of this kind. Because, largely of a prejudice against  the little.animal and its method of  defense,'1 skunk farming has never  been, firmly established in Canada as  an Industry although the advantages  and possibilities are obviously so  great. Success on otber parts of the  American continent, and elsewhere  bave demonstrated the feasibility of  establishing the Industry firmly and  profitably In tbe Dominion.   .  Tbe skunk is widely found over-the  Canadian Dominion in every corner  and nook where it can find.food  suited to its needs, and notwithstanding the fact tbat it is persistently hunted, trapped "and worried  by dogs, tt continues to thrive and  multiply ln close proximity to settlement*.

In captivity, Its feeding is  very economical, the diet consisting  of meat, fish, cooked cereals, vegetables and milk. The food problem  is most easily solved where tbe ranch  is established within reach of a  hotel. The contents of the daily  garbage can well feed a considerable  number,   v  The skunk multiplies rapidly with  litters of from six to twelve, the  period of gestation being eight  weeks: Descenting may be performed when tbe animals are Ave weeks  old and all possibility of future  nuisance may be eliminated, but in  domestic raising this If not really  necessary contrary t������������������ general belief.  as tbe animals become remarkably  tame and friendly witb those band*  ling them and never bring into play  tbe powerful weapon nature baf  given them except when bad'j  frightened by some intruder.  Skunk ranching could be successfully carried on in practically every  section of Canada, for. the animal is  indigenous to every part' and would  find his natural conditions wherever  a farm was located. In wire enclosed pens ot suitable land the  animals will make their own burrows and dens and need little attention beyond feeding. The demand  for pelts is steady and general, and  the high: prices prevailing during \m  past few years make, skunk ranchef  very profitable, concerns and augur  a successful future for any develop*  ment along these lines.
