All were more than pleased with  the thoroughness of the improvements and the splendid appearance  of the wards, the dining room," linen  closets, kitchen, etc. After inspect-,  ing the institution the visitors 'were  served afternoon tea by the matron,  Mrs. McPherson, and ladies of the'  Hospital Auxiliary, when all expressed their pleasure, and admiration for  the able manner in which they found  the hospital conducted.  The history and full "details in connection Avith the building of the hospital addition are loo Avell known to  bear repeating here. The enlargement of the building adds one new  ward down-stairs, also a linen closet,  an enlarged dining,^ room and a -mod  ern hospital kitchen. Upstairs two  wards are added with out-door sleeping porch for each, with a clothes  chute to the laundry porch and a  silent waiter from the kitchen below  and a linen closet for the upper floor.  The new addition and the relation  of these rooms to those already in  use gives Enderby as complete and  compactly arranged cottage hospital  as can be found in the-interior. * It  is furnace-iieated throughout.  The Hospital Board is endeavoring  to.secure assistance from the Provincial Department under ,tho Hospital  Act to enable them to - properly furnish the additional" wards and - later  to make some alterations at the entrance of the hospital to' make possible the-better handling of patients  brought in on a stretcher. It is also  intended -to repaint , the_ building ��������������������������� as  early as possible in the spring and to .  make a suitable driveway from "the  street to the entrance.

During' 1920 exports of bacon and ham  and of beef were about 64 per cent  of the 1919 totals; pork about 50 per  cent and canned meats only about  one-sixteenth of the total. The drop  of 82,000,000 lbs, in pork -products  would represent the exportable portions of about 745,000 hogs. .

The members of the Women's Institute met last Tuesday at the home  of the Secretary, Mrs. R. Drake, to  take oflicial leave of Mrs. E. J. Mack,  who leaves soon for her nev? home  in B. C. Mrs. Mack has been a very  hard-working member of the Institute  from its inception and has earned the  esteem of" the riiembers in a very remarkable way. She did much to  bring the branch to its present state  of efficiency and has been a great help  in every good work that was promoted in the community. Her departure  is a distinct loss to the district. The  members present asked her to accept  a very handsome lavalliere as a token of their regard for her and as a  slight memento of some happy days  in Gadsby.���������������������������Gadsby, Alta., News.

There are signs aplenty oi' thc  good things in store. Looking about thc district  one sees on every hand much improvement on  the farms and greater development of thc land.  Farm homes are better kept, and evidences of a  better system of handling the business of farming are numerous..  In the town itself, there is additional evidence  of the natural-growth and fuller development of  business, and a better understanding of the district's requirements and a fuller knowledge of  how to meet these needs.  Tbis winter, for next season's operations, the  Okanagan Saw Mills Company is making the  cutting portion of the mill over. New foundations  arc going in under every machine, and appliances  for tiie better handling'of the output and for increasing the cul arc to be added. The mill will be  in good shape to "handle-the maximum cut of thc  machines . Mr. A. E. Shew, lhc new manager, is  already in.charge and is making a clean  sweep ol  running  of  over-  woaknr'sscs.  the result of the heavy  the last several year without  a   complete  hauling. .  This season, in addition to thc enlarged production and increased output in othcr lines, will  see Uic .Enderby Brick <?: Tile Company in operation to thc fttil capacity of the plant, under the  management of Mr. A. Fulton, and in charge of  an Al hrickmaker. - .    ���������������������������  These things, and the general improved, condition of'the town and dislrict, lend encouragement i'o Ihcs optimism fell on all sides and in  every diicction.     '  V/ork  on Mabel Lake Road Promised  it ii probable thai we may sec considerable  work put upon Mabel Lake road this season, ll  is promised at ali events, and stranger things  have happened lhan thai these road-work promises should occasionally-bc fulfilled. There is as  greal need for better work on this wagon road  as there is upon any roadway in the Province.  Enough money has been spent in patchwork on  the Mabel Lake road to havc made a turnpike of  it ere tills, but, instead, it has been made only a  fair fair-weather road, passable only in the summer months, afler the-spring thaws havc ceased  and before the Jail rains begin. In poinl if fact,  the bpsl stretches of road between Enderby and  Mabel Lake, a .distance of 24 miles1, arc those  where Ihe natural surface has never bcen broken.  =a n < Uu po iimvJi i c h-gra < 1 i-n-g-I va s-been-u i ! neeessa v-y-  used to hear much about the Fatherhood of God  and the common brotherhood under, that fatherhood, but that was "before the war." Today all  wc hear from day to day is wilh regard to some  new way to bc found to tax the people and to keep  up freight and money rates in order to pay the  cost of Uic war fought and at thc same time prepare to fight again when our commercial rivals  become loo slrong for us���������������������������wherever they may  live. Wc repeal thc same old chant of selfishness,  "Britain must rule lhe waves." Then our genial  Uncle Samuel hears thc chant and replies, "No  navy shall bc larger than ours." And then lhc  Japanese-pipe up, "Our national life depends on  our having a fighting"forcc on sea as great as any  other nation."  At thc same time 1hc whole world is hungry  for Brotherhood���������������������������a Brotherhood lhat our fighting men and diplomats do nol seem lo bc inclined  lo let come inlo practice.    It seems  to us lhat  whal we need more than mastery of thc seas, or  to dominate other nations, is more mutual understanding, mutual appreciation and consideration.  It will bc a long time before there can come to organized  society  any   good   from   the  Common  Brotherhood idea when thc greater part of our  time and energy is spent in adding engines of destruction that can bring nothing but havoc.and  misery upon others and upon ourselves. We .may  talk as much as we like about the Common Brotherhood, bul it can never be more lhan an empty  phrase until we can look upon it as "a goal to  aspire to where its own membership will not be  the sole benefactor."

BUY WHERC  YOU LIVE  Standing Alone  Iri a very real sense, every man stands alone.  Just as alone as though he were the only man in  the world. While there are times when wc may  think "en masse" and work in gangs, and trade in  corporations, and pray by congregations, and  sing in choruses���������������������������nevertheless, there comes to  each of us the lime when we musl do these things  alone. When a young fellow starts out in-his  musical career, taking his place in a chorus, hc is  noL particularly disturbed if he.fails'to make good  upon every occasion, because hc knows that onc  or more of his ncighlDors in the ononis will do so,  so that his failure will not bc noticed. Bul \vhcn  hc bigins to sing solo parts, hc knows that it is  strictly up to him lo make good. Tic must strkc  high "G" or low "F" clear and strong, without  liabbincss or uncertainly. For.the time being, he  becomes the. only man in the chorus.  Each of us has our solo part tin life���������������������������occasions  when wc cannot depend upon- our neighbors in  the chorus loVlo our part. Noivcan we "fake" the  score which we havc imperfectly Jea'rncd. Inefficiency, or ignorance, or weakness, cannot then be  given as an excuse. This docs;not mean that we  shall be expected to play another's part, any more  than you'd expect a bass voice to sing the soprano  score. There's variety enough in life to give each  of us a solo, filled lo our peculiar range. If you  cannot take high "C" comfortably, you may sing,  the tones of the middle register with greater pow  er and effectiveness.���������������������������Rev. Charles Stclzle.  .Behold, The Man!

The -whole winler-season,  when lhe greatest amount of gravelled could be  hauled for thc,'least money, is always allowed to  pass with no employment on the roads whatever.

Brotherhood or Brutality?  Which of these trails in .human character is  lo prevail*in llie relations of nations and peoples?

R.   H.   Helmer.   superintendent   Experimental   Station,   Summerland,  J  C,  gives this  important summary on  the question of cover crops     in    this  Valley.: .  "The question of Cover Crops in  orchard practice is a very live' one  amongamong fruit g rowers in the  Okanagan. Cover crops are divided  into two classes, viz.: Those that  supply humus only ancl those that supply humus olus notrogen. The most  important of tho first arc Fall Rye,  Wheat, Buckwheat and rape. The advantage of thes;o- crops is that they  grow readily without much soil prep  .aration. Buckwheat and rape arc  seeded in August or Ssptcmber antf  allowed to remain on the land all win  ~ter. These crops supply , hun.u:--  quickly under adverse conditions and  put heart in it to grow legumes that  will supply an abundance of nitrogen.  The most important point to remember in using rye and wheat is that  they must be turned under whilst  quite green not allowed to head and  become straw. In soils that bake and  pack badly we have found that one  or two crops ploughed under have  made the difference between success  and failure .in establishing alfalfa,  clover, vetches. This brings us to  the crops that supply nitrogen to the  soil. Humus and nitrogen aro the  controlling factors in soil fertility at.  tha -present time. ,' Therefore cover  crops that supply both are of most  importance to  the_ valley.  "We cannot advise alfalfa, indiscriminately as water and depth of soil  play a big part in its" use, but we can  ,-ifivise that when grown it be used  as si mulching crop and net as a hay  crop.. Do not cut it "at all, allow it  to rot from year to year on the land,  only ploughing- 'irrigation, furrows  tlirough it each spring. This Is by  far the cheapest method of orchard  practice, butt until alfalfa -has been  proven successful under .various con.  ditions we would- recommend the ,use  of ITairy "Vetch.. We seed in .early  August or'September and allow it to  remain"-all winter and plough in the  spring. A great" deal of expense of  Hairy Vetch seed can lie" overepme by  .allowing a certain amount of- the  vetch to go to-seed. Harvest the seed  and disc tho land the seed came from  to.reseed it. This gives t he advantage of clean cultivation when water  is scarce but is expensive. To cheap,  en this method the vetch has been  allowed' to go to seed aU over the orchard, and then disced1 in and this.re-  seeds the orchard and adds much  humus. If a fall seeding of flairy  Vetch is killed out where picking, and1  hauling has taken place reseed to  spring vetch. Clover cannot be recommended as a'* cover crop for orchards.  It. is a shallow feeder and " robs. the  water from the roots of the trees ami  unless it is frequently ploughed under  tends to bake the soil and if allowed  to rot it smothers the stand, whicl-  makes it a very expensive "crop..  *.- "To make our legumes supply nitrogen to   the - maximun^_\V"*e   must   put  Through the Kettle Valley  our soil in good - physical condition  and by repeated cover .cropping or  mulching keep it so."  AIRPLANE  SCOUTING.  Late last fall a huge Federal seaplane soared over Enderby and went  its way east. to Mabel Lake. There  it alighted and later flew over the  forest reserves in'that district. The  plane was one of the regular scouting  machines which the Dominion Forestry Branch is using to gather information.  A report, of the expert sent- on one  of these trips says: "When an alti?  tude of 7,700 feet was.reached, a very  fair idea was obtained of the general,  nature of the country, of an important watershed and of the general  timber conditions. ,  "I Avas much amazed at the volume  of detail which it was possible to cover from even the superficial study allowed by a single flight over the territory. There was no difficulty in distinguishing absolutely every specimen  of tree, species on the ground inasr  much as they presented very marked  and. outstanding characteristics, one  from the other, as viewed from, the  air. The timber, on this area .and  ^ others examined the same day consists of different species, including  Douglas  fir,    yellow  pine,    lodgepole,  Southern British Columbia, with  its placid lakes that mirror fruitful  chores, the orchards of the Okona-  fjan Valiey, the Grand Forks Vai-  ey and a country, rich in mineral  and forest wealth, are' made -accessible by the Kettle Valley railway  which links a vast extent of Britten  Columbia with the Pacific Coatt  through a route of rare ecentc <*  beauty.

Enderby  Library  Assn.  The fear is widespread that the  "Blue Laws" of early New England  are once more to be saddled upon the  United States and Canada. Fear not,  faint heart. Let us be slow in condemning the old days and the old  ways. They had withal a certain mellowness. While the whipping-post,  the ducking-stool and various amenities incidental to Salem witchcraft  might prove a trifle irksome in these  latter years, there were features of  life in Pitritanical times, and for some  subsequent decades, the return ot  which need not be dreaded. With  which few words, we introduce an informative extract from Alice Morse  Earle's 'Stagecoach and Tavern Days'  (McMillan), quoting from one who is  a recognized authority on the "blue"  period   of  which  she  wrote:  "Ordination Day was almost as  great for the tavern as for the meeting-house. The visiting ministers who  came to assist in the religious service of ordination cf a new minister  were usually entertained at the tavern." Often an especially good beer  was brewed called 'ordination beer,'  and in Connecticut an 'ordination ball'  was given at the tavern���������������������������this with  Lhe sanction of the parsons. The bills  for   entertaining   the   visitors   are   in  a  many   cases   preserved. _ One   of  the  most   characteristic   was  ford  ordination.    It runs  BUREAUCRATIC   WISDOM.  at   a   Hart-  Our Federal government now says:  If a soldier settler has not more than  twenty acres of land, we will refuse  to aid him.  This ruling will work a hardship  upon settlers in British Columbia entitled to aid under the S. S. B.  It could only have been framed by  some office holder in the east Avho  has not yet made the journey to the  Pacific Coast.  Here men succeed with fifteen  acres, ten acres, or less. It's a matter of intensive cultivation and specialized effort. ' In the coast, districts  and on the Island, settlers usually  have a better chance of success if  they do not take on too much land.  In certain parts ot the interior settlers  need  larger  areas.  We know of cases where men with  five acres have made a better success  of things than others with almost as  many hundreds.    --,  Surely Ottawa does not propose to  penalize soldier settlers in this province just because climatic, and soil  conditions here differ from those of  the other provinces. ��������������������������� Farm and  Home.

' Somebody over in England conceived the bright idea to load upon Canada a navy, consisting of one cruiser,  a destroyer and three or four submarines. The gift came quite unexpectedly and about as unwelcome as  it was unexpected. What Canada is  going to do with it nobody seems to  know. A navy of half a dozen gift  boats is not large enough to be of  any service and too large to be operated for the fun of the thing. Perhaps, it is argued, if Canada is made  a gift of these boats, we,-, might like  the cost of operating them so well it  may induce us to add more fighting  ships and bye and bye we might have  a navy of a- full dozen.  _ But battleships nnd dread naughts  ar-e^u i^ex p en s i-\:e=J u x u uy^an d=a^.co s tl y^  plaything. It is net likely that Canada will add to the gift, for the reason that such ships are out of date  as fighting ships and too expensive to  keep  around  just to  look  at.  Lieut.-Commander J. M. Kenworthy  M. P., well known British export on  naval   afrairs  says:  "The best that could possibly happen to the world is this: At a certain hour on a certain clay and a certain month, to bo arranged, every ship  of war belonging to every nation  should bo taken into deep water and  sunk with appropriate religious ceremony, officers of tho navies of all  natiuns being liberally pensioned,  their pensions depending upon their  not agitating  for  more  warships."  This opinion is not shared by the  men in control who live by the sword  or the warship, but it is share*!'' by  the great mass of the people everywhere. Yet certain men and- certain  newspapers already are beginning to  strut about and laud the merits of  our three-point navy!  Members of the farmers' institutes  of Vancouver Island opened their annual convention at the Empress Hotel  at Victoria, on Jan. 7th, to settle questions to do with amalgamation with  the United Fanners, Oriental competition and credit to settlers, by-a  series of personal attacks, with one  speaker apparently trying to outdo  the other.in straigJit-from-the-shoulder  talk,  says  the Vancouver Province.  C. E. Whitney-Griffiths, who pre  sided, said that because secretaries  of farmers' institutes do not reply to  questions, it could not be found out  exactly, how the institutes stand on  the Farmers' Institutes���������������������������United Farmers question.  "The majority of secretaries do not  answer questions because they do not  know what is being talked about, said  A.Kakout o'f.Sobke." "Don't you know  that farmers', institutes are jokes?"  "Gentlemen," don't get hot under the  collar." said  the chairman.   ,  "I do believe that our meetings  don't amount to anything," Mr.'Ka-  hout went on. "There is a great deal  of rope-pulling and scheming going  on, and then we get long reports" from  a windy chairman. It would be all  right if we were in party politics and  could then scheme for all sorts of  things."  "Do  you  think it  fair to call your  A few tons each of good Potatoes.

"No," was the* chorus. from the conference. ��������������������������� . *   *  "We don't all come from Sobke,"  said one man.  ,"I feel disgusted when men misrepresent my position," Mr. Whitney-  Griffiths added. "Can you expect any  progress when men do that? There  have been all ' sorts of statements  made during the last year by men behind my back. They were not correct.  They were  deliberately  false.  "I defy anyone to show that I have  not done my.duty. Gentlemen, I will  do my duty by you, but be fair."  "You have done your duty, but the  fault ������������������is with the government for not  putting through the proposals we  passed upon," said T. Pearse of  Courtenay.  A resolution was uanimously passed expressing the satisfaction of the  institutes with Whitney-Griffiths as  secretary , and the "work he'has undertaken and we resent all" the dirty  stuff' that has been thrown at him."  "We will get somewhere at this  meeting. I<see that," said Mr. Whitney-Griffiths.  "I see that too," replied Mr. Ka-  hout.

CONVICTION   QUASHED.  The Court of Appeal by sustaining  the finding of Mr. Justice Morrison  in the case of Rex vs. Dobie has confirmed the quashing of a conviction  by Magistrate Heggie of Vernon.
