Smedley and enjoyed a practical demonstration and  talk on egg production. Mr. Smedley outlined his methods of breeding  and management of the Mediterranean breeds and\ gave general suggestions on the profitable raising of  fowls.  During the coming term Mr. Munro  have been devoted to poultry keeping  and this  practical 'lesson taken in a  Swell managed establishment thoroughly impressed on the students the  -value of system iri all operation and  selection of high  class  individuals.  During the comisg term Mr.Munro  \vent~~to-France on service, he beiiig^  then a captain in the Canadian Expeditionary Force, and he spent his  subsequent "leaves" with her. He  was demobilized in May, 1919, and  afterwards lived' with her for two  months. At that time she was not  very well, and as her .husband was  very hot-tempered there was some  trouble between them. In July of  that year he went to live with his  parents, ancl in the following September be visited her mother, with whom  shewas living, and during his stay  completely ignored her, and never  spoke to her. In October, 1919, she  was again under the doctor, and was  sent by him to the East Coast. During that time tlie respondent did not  make her cany allowances.

"  A correspondent  in    a    Vancouver  paper writes: . '  "I would like to draw the attention  of the readers of your valuable paper  to the deplorable condition of affairs  which exists in this province in regard to the potato situation. The  jobbers of Vancouver have sent out  of, Canada to the United States in  the vicinity of $150,000 to pay for  the importation of American grown-  potatoes, while tlie B.C. potato growers suffer a loss of even greater proportions besides the fact that thousands of tons of potatoes will never  be marketed-and will be a total loss  unless some unforeseen situation  arises whereby we will be able to  export our crop to an outside market. It is indeed a gross political  crime, especially at a time when B. C.  is trying to boost B. C. goods, that  Canada's business' men, who realize'  that Canada must develop her own  resources and - manufacturing' industries to such an extent that she' will  increase her exports and decrease her  imports'.. before the rate of exchange  can .be-rectified with the- United  States,^should r^have fallowed - such  situation - to'arise.  '"'���������������������������It is almost impossible to sell potatoes today .over $lo to $15-a ton,  and the cold storage plants are, filled  with them, and most of the crop is  still in the pits, but' the consumer in  Vancouver today is paying from $2.00  to $2.75 per sack."  xxxxxxxxxxxxx*  X NORTH DEEP CREEK '*  XXXXXXXXXXXXX*  John Hayhurst was a visitor in the  Creek on Thursday.

He was. sitting in a chair early in the afternoon  when he quietly slipped to the floor  and expired. He was 87 years of  age, and a man of sterling character  and big heart. Of Scotch parentage  he was born near London, Ont. On  reaching manhood he became a contractor and builder, which vocation he  followed many years. With Mrs. McPherson he came to Enderby Ave  years ago, and their residence here  has been of quiet helpfulness to  all.  .**- r ���������������������������*?-���������������������������-.  i ?v '-:��������������������������� ."���������������������������������������������.?_ ���������������������������  -A "i-^'-^'l  7 KSsSA  - '..-���������������������������>">  '1 ������������������.-���������������������������?.XA ..." sr.".?!J  .     ��������������������������� .       .--     /As X'SS'^ i';'iv??.  xxxxx xxx x xx * x xx x H^y^s^m.  * ��������������������������� grindrod: notes -~7:ysli$*^su4i$t������������������0.\  * X XX XXXXXX *7*.* Xslg������������������l^5-^^fgl  A Mr.  L-'  H.

It  is a time of re-construction, and we are urged  to economize and to reduce, and the churches  are also asked to cut out all waste."  Each winter season, when the time arrives for  making ice for hockey and skating, thc young  people of Enderby feci the handicap they are  plaeed under by the lack of a covered rink. They  work hard to overcome the handicap, and arc well  supported bv citizens generally in their sports,  hut the "handicap of having to depend upon thc  uncertainty of weather conditions and an open  rink, is more lhan human effort am overcome,  wilh the result that the season closes with Enderby occupying the tail end in the sports column  of thc newspapers and the consequent lack of  heart by the players owing to thc poor accommodation provided them. And there is the determination expressed each season that "next  winter we shall havc a covered rink." It has  been the same year after year���������������������������and there il ends.  Tlie covered rink is still in the air.  Arc wc going to allow another summer to slip  by and another winter to arrive and lind us with  nothing done in the matter? A week or so ago  we referred lo the organization of the Athletic  Association in Enderby, the objects of which are  to handle all branches of sports in Enderby and  fo provide the means by which lhcy can be pulled  off to better advantage to thc players ahd thc  public. Thc movement is in the right direction,  provided the association goes far enough to become the actual head of local sports and leads  thc way to better things. If, however, il lacks  functioning power because of not' being fully incorporated so n-v lo handle its business as a legal  liod'y, it cannot be more than an athletic club and  would block-the way for thc incorporation of an  association with legal status, which could undertake such an enterprises as the building of a rink  or the handling of public funds for this purpose  or othcr purposes appertaining to sports.  "Why ncl go Vic* I\.i'. 1 way aim tiius matte ihe  athletic association a legal body instead of an associ;.! tion in name only? Such a body could then  go lo the city with legal functioning powers and  place before thc aldermen the requirements of  thc association and ask consideration. Thus incorporated wc would have a legal body which  could be of inestimable service to the public if  properly handled. Instead of "letting George do  it" we would have a legal body through which il  could bc done and which -.might get us somewhere.  That a skating rink could be made to produce  at least inlercst.on the investment by the city and  the members of thc asociation taking shares, is  reasonably certain. In Armstrong, for instance,  where the rink was operated by the city council  this winter for thc first lime, thc city had a sur-  _P-hjs_aj'_tcr_pa\;j,ng ajl__c\\[\cnses, and..froni_fl.Us sur-  plus donated $75 lo the hospital, $75 to maintenance and improvement of thc sports ground,  and $50 to thc (\. W. V. A. for the purchase of  additional gymnastic apparatus.  Co-operation in Cfmrcfi Work  As a result of the Inter-church Forward Movement of 1*020. the Anglican, Raptist, Methodist.  Presbyterian and Congregational churches of  Vancouver have organized a plan by which these  denominations may co-operate. In submitting  lhe report of lhe committee,of thirty, appointed  for the purpose of drafting a plan of organization. Rev. P>. J. Mclntyrc said:  "Wc are seeking lo do in thc realm of religion  what men ..arc. doing in the realm of commerce.  Instead of* division, strife and competition in the  churches, wc are endeavoring to find an outlet  for the unity we have in our hearts and to discover a method of co-operation."  Rev. A. E. Roberts is onc of the leading men in  the co-operation movement. Speaking on the  topics of co-opera lion, concentration and. consecration; Dr. Henderson, another of the leaders,  said that "thc dark and trying phases of today,  tlie very restlessness of the limes we are passing  Ihrough, may be -suggestive of better things to  come; nevertheless it is a great time to live and  there are wonderful oportunities."  "The meeting that night marked a new era,"  he continued, "thc churches are throwing off  Iheir shackles, and sectarianism has received  a death-blow. Things are taking second place.  People are taking first place. The spirit  of today is the substitution of altruism  for  individualism.    Thc  duty  of   the church   is  Substituting, Distrust for Good Will  A week or two ago a solemn warning was issued from London to the effect that an organised  movement was on foot in every part of the British  possessions to throw the Empire into Bolshevism. The warning came from a very high authority, it was said, after an exhausts e investigation, and was given in words so solemn there  could be no doubt about it. And why should  there bc any doubt about it?  Today any and every movement which is not  in accord with the powers that bc is branded  with the 'brand of "Bolshevism," whatever that  may.imply. And the phrase is being used so  generally to cover so many disorders of the body  politic that there should be no doubt about its  coming as prophesied.  It is coming; sure it is coming. Ancl no power  on earth can stop it if thc present order of things  continues long enough. Here is what Matthew  Woll, vice-president of the American Federation  of Labor says of its coming over there, and what  isctrue of one country is true of another:  "A widespread feeling of dissatisfaction with  the organization of society and of industry exists  throughout almost every civilized nation of Europe. Most countries of'the Old World arc today  a seething mass of unrest and discontent, threatening human bankruptcy and bringing ever  nearer thc peoples of these nations to thc brink  of industrial and social chaos.  ��������������������������� "In our country much discontent prevails. Productive processes have ceased temporarily,, and  millions of workmen have been forced into the  streets in idleness. We havc greater wealth than  ever before. Food is plenty. Labor is plenty. In  gross, wc produce more than we consume. Yet,  in thc midst of abundance, a great industrial and  commercial depression has overtaken us.  "Bitter hatreds and intense jealousies arc in  the making. . The spectre of starvation and of  destitution in a land of plenty is driving our people into a state of national hysteria.  "We offer no remedy. Thc powers of government0 seem impotent. Whatever effort labor may  exert ������������������or whatever rcmedV if may propose is  frowned' upon and resisted. Even palialive measures are ruthlessly swept aside. All traditions  of the past arc in a state of flux.- AU proposed  innovations arc acridly opposed. Those resentful lo a ny change, aud who arc stubbornly press.  ing forward flieir demands for complete mastery, are those "temporarily in possession of the  wealth of "the nation and who, blind to the appeals of humanity, are rusbing civilization to the  brink of Niagara.  ., A revolt against permanently following the  road we are now travelling will-certainly occur."  Samuel Gompcrs, recognized as tbe most reasonable Labor leader of America. Jnit recently  branded With the brand of Bolshevism by certain capitalistic interests, also speafas of the present-day movement.   Says lie:  "Workers ask why in this country with all  its riches, all its natural resources, its people full  of genius, why there are nearly 5,000,000 workers unemployed and unable to get employment.  That condition is an indictment against our  boasted civilization. The world docs not owe any  man or woman a living, but when any man or  woman is willing to work, it is a blot upon our  _ci\Jhzation-=that___thcy___ar-e___forc_e(l^nto____idle_n_es.s,  want and starvation.

Enderby #v  THURSDAY, MARCH 31, 1921  OKANAGAN   COMMONER  Relative Value of Home  Influence and School Training  The following very thoughtful paper was read by Miss Bowes of Hull-  car at a .meeting of the literary society  last  Thursday  evening:  "Whilst I would in no way minimize the important position that  school training occupies, hojme influence is undoubtedly the most potent  factor. It is when the mind is plastic and impressionable that the real  teaching begins1. Every home influence works itself into the heart of  childhood, and works itself out again  in susbequent development of the  character.  As the chief business in life is  character building, the foundations of  that structure are laid in the home.  It is there that ideals and principles  are formed, and in the school. that  they are put into practical use. That  every. one should _ have. the privilege  of the very best education available  is  most desirable, for education is a  will in turn be home-makers. With  these the world will ..be populated  with a healthy, happy, harmonious  and "loving race."  THE SQUAB INDUSTRY.  What is claimed \o be the largest  pigeon farm in the world is located  at Los Angeles, California. By' actual count there are cotes for more  than 100,000 of the birds, and every  nest .is occupied with numbers of the  birds roosting on outbuildings and in  temporary nesting places. This gives  the unique farm a population of  considerably more than one hundred thousand feathered inhabitants  claimed -for it.  .   The'birds leat  two  tons  of  wheat  each   day,   with   large   quantities   of  valuable "asset  in  life,  but  it  is . the green stuff and other foods, of which  Avhatever rotation you use on your  farm one year must supply humus In  some form or another. Manure Is  not rich in elements of plant food but  to bring soil into good physical condition it has no equal. Keeping  physical condition in mind at all times  make* an earnest effort to start cultivation at the earliest moment. This  will help you to keep 'ahead of work,  make your growing season longer,  and make the success that usually follows close attention to these minor  details.  WHY  AND. BECAUSE.  high ideals and principles first - ab  sorbed that enables the child to make  the best use of- it. Of this we can  have no doubt when we think, of Germany, who excelled other nations in  so-called higher education and scientific training.  No one-_can get away from" the impressions of his early home. Good  or ��������������������������� bad it clings to him all" through  life as on some old rock formation we  find tracks of a bird that walked  across the sand one day when it was  the shore of an-ancient sea,-or the  print of a leaf that fell and lay there  and though centuries have passed the  rock holds every trace, so everything  taken into our lives leaves a permanent impression. Hence the importance of books, ..pictures and conversation in the home.  Cicero, said, "it is the- soul itself  which sees and hears, not tlfose parts  which' are, as" it were, but the. windows of the soul."  It is the home that we must look to  for a solution of the problems that  was before" us at our last discussion,  that of Canadianizing our alien popu  lation. ' If the~ young foreigner is to  become a loyal and worthy Canadian  citizen he must be educated with our  children in the belief and knowledge  that he is a Canadian by adoption and  .not treated as,a foreigner and the In-  _ fluence "in-the -home', will-determine  how - the little foreigner is~ received  anil treated by... our native born Can.  adians, his school-mates. -The thought"  of pride and Responsibility. t ln one's'  citizenship instilled - in * tlie . child  will  ' bo refloated"-upon"' tho. alien i.lay-matt-  and the pride in him (or. her) will  respond to tlie "thought, and he '(oi  she) will grow -up proud to be considered and treated as a Canadian  citizen  and   will- entirely'- forget  his  -aliehshtp.       -.    ���������������������������:S*-  The work of re-constructing' tht?  battle-scarred world can only-be begun in the homes. It is not by cleverness, but by goodness that the ro.  constructed world ��������������������������� will be established. It Is) Jove that is needed' for the  rebuilding. It is in the new world,  built upon the ruins of old doctrines,  old prejudices, and self pride that'the  brotherhood of man -will become a  reality and there can be no brotherhood of man-where the thought of  alienship exists.  As we find liome influence a powerful a factor wo cannot fail to see the  need for home-makers. How ' often  one hears regrets that the young peo  pie on the farm are not content and  prefer the city. They are. not altogether tb blame.    The young mind is  =laler_t.___.exnansive.���������������������������seeking-knowledge  a regular account Is not kept, as It is  obtained from surrounding- farms in  exchange for the fertilizer from the  pigeon ranch. *When''. the pigeons,  are.disturbed at their" eating they  rise, from the ground in huge white  clouds spotted here and. there with  patches of blue.. For a number of  years, however, the- colored birds  have been gradually weeded out until nearly all are snow white.  The produce of 'the rarm; squabs,  young birds and adults, -goes entirely  to the large hotels of Los Angeles and  the surrounding resorts.' '���������������������������.     a   -  Why do we use the expression  "apple pie order" when we mean that  things, are exactly in their right  place?  Because every Saturday a certain  Puritan dame, Hepzibah Merton,  made a practice of ��������������������������� baiting two ot  three dozen apple" pies which were to  last her family through the week.  She - placed them on the shelves. in  hcr pantry, labeling' each according  to the'day of the week on which it  was to be used, and the pantry, thus  arranged, was said to be In apple pie  order. -       . . N i  Why is an unmarried woman called  a spinster?  Because women were prohibited  from marrying in olden days until  they had spun a full set of bed furnishings and thus, until their marriage, they spent much time at the  spinning wheel and were, therefore,  "spinsters."  Why do clergymen habitually wear  black?  Because when Martin Luther, In  1524, laid aside the habit of a monk  and adopted the style of dress prevailing at the time, the Elector of  Saxony used to send to him' from  time to time pieces of black cloth,  that color then being fashionable at  the Court. Luther's disciples thought  because he wore" black lt became  them to do so, and thus it came about  that the clergy generally grew to regard it as the only proper color for  them to wear.    .  Why Is a woman's allowance called  pin money?  Because at the beginning of the  fifteenth century pins were considered a very acceptable present by Wo  men, who up to that time had used  wooden skewers. Sometimes "money  was given with or instead of pins,  and was called, "pin money."  Why do we say, "Mind your p's  and q's?"  Because in "ancient times behind  .he door-of each alehouse there hung  a slate, on which was written P.  whicb stood for pint, and Q, which  stood for quart. A number was placed opposite,each customer's name, according to the amount "he imbibed.

All pure joy Is helpful; rational  amusements are a force.ln educating  and building up of character, but to  be successful it must not be apart  frqni the ihome.

Yes, taking the relative value, home  influence has the first place because  it is backed by love, the very greatest force ln the universe. But with  the co-operation of home, school, and  the church (always provided they  start with the right kind of influence)  it  is  within  the  scope of    parents,  teachers and home-makers to send  out; into the world-the kind of men  and J women that are needed today���������������������������  men and Avomen with backbone; men  who are "self starters" (the old kind  of human machine, that waits every  once in a wliile. to be cranked up is  out  of date how),  and   women   who  We .have felt for many years that  farmers have not studied their soil  conditions early enough in the spring.

On heavier-land some  days'",or even weeks must.elapse before we can cultivate on:a northern  exposure where sun does not dry out  soils and frost does not come out so  quickly. When our soils-are ready  to- cultivate cultivation" should begin  and each farmer should study'Jtiis own  land and .know just how soon he  should "start. There are some, general rules given about land steaming  and" fencing dancing and the first blue  bird you see .sitting .on a telephone  wire, but" unless the farmer studies  the physical condition of the land he  is not fanning intelligently.

Failure with this crop is due principally to delayed seeding in Vhe  spring. If an early start is not possible the crop-will not mature before  the cool damp weather of fall starts,  resulting in continued growth and  the formation of thick necks rather  than the development or tuilbs. This  may be overcome by. an early start  which gives a well developed bulb toward the latter part of August, at  which period maturity in the bulb  .'is :hastened because of th'e hot ancl  usually dry weather. If the onion has  not reached a certain development  at this time vegetative growth will  likely continue uninterrupted and  good maturity is not likely to be obtained. Seeding should be done as  early as .the ground is dry enough to  work.  Thev. Extra Early Flat Red is one  of the earliest of red sorts. Yellow-  Globe Danvers is also early maturing but later than the above and  much more desirable for most markets. The Prizetaker is too late for  seeding in the open and unless the  reason Is very favourable they wiU  not  mature.  Any good garden soil will grow  onions. The land is better if manured in the fall, but well composted  manure may be applied in tne spring  and worked into the surface soil. Acid  phosphate at the rate of GOO pounds  per acre and nitrate of soda at the  rate of 200 pounds per acre or a mixed fertilizer at the rate of S00 pounds  per acre may be applied to give the  plants a good.. Quick start. This  should be harrowed or raked into the  surface soil  before seeding.      "     -.  The seed is usually planted in rows  one foot apart and the soil well firmed  by rolling or tampir_g. Just- as 'soon  as thc plants are nicely up loosen  the surface soil between the rows ancl  follow shallow cultivation throughout  the season providing a shallow surface covering of fine soil. Thoy  should be thinned to about two inches  apart.   ���������������������������  The above varieties were grown at  the   Experimental   Station,   Kentville,  ���������������������������a  on a light sandy loam from seed sown  May 8th, 1920. Early Flat Red yielded 15.1S tons. Globe Danvers .1-1.52  tons and Prize'taker 21.7S tons per  aero. Tlie latter- v."'c:'v_ not as v/cll  matured as the other two sorts: The  seed was started in shallow boxes  and  transplanted.  MUST   FACE   FACTS.  GOT   THE   JOB.  An Irishman, an Englishman, and  a Scotsman were out of work. They  travelled together in search of -employment, and came to a farmer's  house and applied. The farmer said  whoever could tell the biggest lie  could have a job. The Englishman  said hc went to the North Polo in a  tub. The Scotsman said he swam  to the South Pole.

Filly million citizens are said to  have been made healthier, wealthier  and  better by the automobile.  For  snaps  TRY  Sir Philip Gibbs, who was knighted  by King George for his services as  war correspondent, tlirough British  headquarters, recently said:  "The time has come when we nnist  recognize that the world con not go  on if the idea of vengeance or punishment is to be the dominant one.  Perhaps we shall find that we must  relinquish even some of our former  conceptions of justice, that we must  deal with facts and take heed of consequences.  One consequence of any attempt to  enforce the contemplated indemnity  would mean that such a sentence of  j strangulation pronounced upon Ger-  many would mean a sentence of the  same kind 'of death for all Europe.  It doesn't matter whether Germany  ought to pay or not. The hard fact is  that it can not be done without in.  volving Europe, and perhaps much of  thc rest of the world, in a crash which  might destroy civilization as we know  it. " '  What the world has most to fear  just now is sentimentalism���������������������������the kind  of sentimentalism which creates an  artificial' world and will not see  things as they are. It is that kind  of sentimentalism which is shouting  that Germany must pay to her uttermost. She can be made to do it, but  if she is, there "will bc then no nation  left to receive it, for both Germany  and the other nations will have been  destroyed  in  the  process.  The world has now to wash out  everything and start over. If it tried  to go on with family feuds and hatreds there 4s nothing ahead but more  wars.  I have seen perhaps as much German (rightfulness as any man, and no  man hates it more.
