INSTAI-WNG NEW SWITCH BOARD  What it Means toVthe Valley and. to  the Okanagan Telephone Co.  The layman does not appreciate  what it means to install a new. switch  board in a telephone system. When  it was announced a few months ago  that the Okanagan Telephone Company was intending to put In a new  hoard at the Vernon office to better  handle the increasing - business, the  layman, the average user of the telephone, casually accepted it as a matter of course and of very little moment.    He   possibly  dwelt  upon   the  =thought=that^perhaps=-this=wouId^give  him a little quicker service and accepted it as his just due.   Subscribers  o have this propensity, you. know.  But the officials of the telephone  company knew what it meant. They  fully recognized the growing need ot  the system; that extensions were being demanded by the development of  the Valley that the present switchboard could not accommodate. They  could have added a unit, and another  unit, at a cost of possibly two thousand dollars, hut this, at best, would be  only a makeshift. The business of the  Valley had outgrown present switchboard accommodation, and larger,  more' complete switchboard service  had to he provided.  The first cost of the switchboard  was $20,000. On this, $600 duty had  to be added. This for the switchboard  alone. The additional building accommodation, cable connections, etc.,  a further outlay of $25,000 or $30,000.  Last week the first installment of  the switchboard arrived in Vernon.  It consisted of seventy-nine pieces of  freight���������������������������boxes and crates of all sizes  and shapes. Eight men were required  to get one of the pieces into the building. This is one-half the switchboard  shipment. The balance will follow  along when the first shipment is put  into position. "      *  If the layman would learn all about  the intricacies of switchboard mechan  ism; now is (or isn't) the time to seek  the information In the maze of wires  centering at the Vernon office.  From Supt. Godfrey we learn that  the construction gang is "to be in this  district this week, to build the Deep  Creek and'Mabel Lake lines.  ������������������KKHHWKH������������������KKKKKXXK  X MARA ITEMS X  XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX  Some of the people are arranging to  take in the 12th at Grindrod.  Mrs. Treet came in Monday to pay  a visit to her sister, Mrs. Jas. Bell.  Reports from Vancouver, state that  -James^Brucef^who^has^be'en^there"  some time having his eyes operated  on, Is progressing well.   .  There was a large attendance at the  annual school meeting last Saturday  night, and school affairs were thoroughly discussed from all points. I.  Robertson and Rupert Davy were reelected as trustee and auditor.  Mrs. Gordon and child, of Winnipeg  and Mrs. Cunningham and child of  Detroit,, are visiting their sister, Mrs.  H. Haljett,. and their parents, Mr. and  Mrs. Hamilton. Mrs. Gordon, whose  husband will join her later, expects  to make her future home here wfth  her parents.  Geo. Butterworth had the misfortune to have his driving horse caught  in the barber wire fence this week.  When found the animal was badly cut  up, the wire having to he cut to release the horse. Although the wounds  are large it is thought with care the  animal will come through.  "Go and Get It," which was shown  in the Enderby Opera House Tuesday  and Wednesday, is admitted by all to  have heen the most intensely interesting picture ever shown here.  S. H. Speers is putting on a genu-  ine"knock-out" sale to high prices  this week and next, and thus is giving great opportunities tQ his patrons  to get bargains.

The  season has opened well for these machines, and they are still going.  During the month of June, Canada's national debt was increased by  $32,375,408 over the figures at. the  end of May. It now stands at $2,349,-  180,110. -  Never ��������������������������� were the crops in this district looking better, and farmers are  taking advantage of the present fine  weather to get the early hay crop cut  and under coyer. _.  A friend asks the Commoner why  so many automobile owners park  their cars at the tie posts along Cliff  street, thus making- it ,-lmpossIble for  horses to be'-tiecl to the posts.'   ' <*>  Tomorrow, Julyv> 15th, will be the  last day for the 10 per cenf rebate on  Water Pates." If rate is not paid by  July 31st, water will in all cases be  turned off without further notice.'  Ray Hancock visited Enderby for  a few hours last week while passing  down the Valley on business. He is  now in the head office of the Vancouver  manufacturers   of  wood  pipe.  MvS and Mrs. W. H. Duncan and  daughter arrived in Enderby from  tho Prairies, Thursday last, on a  visit to their parents, Mr. and. 3VJrs.  W. J.- Wheeler. They are going to the  Coast before returning to their home.  J. A. Mackelvie, M.' P., returned to  Vernon from Ottawa this week. There  are matters which the Dominion  Government "is endeavoring to adjust  which   Mr.   Mackelvie  has   been   sent  home to take up on behalf of the Department.  Few farmers now use the Enderby  tie shed, because they claim they cannot leave anything in- the rigs without  having it stolen. It is regrettable that  there is reason for this complaint,  though it is just possible conditions  are  somewhat  exaggerated.  The last boom of logs for the saw  mills was sent down the river last  week, and river drivers are now at  work cleaning up the river banks.  The steamer Alice R, having finished  tho camp and boom work, has been  tied up at thc warehouse. No logging camps are being operated this  summer, and the outlook is unfavorable for any further activity in this  connection while the lumber market  continues demoralized.  It appears that the capture of the  young men last week by Constables  Bailey ancl Smith, for breaking into  the several Enderby stores, is proving  one of the most-important captures in  recent years. Already evidence has  been produced and is now^in the hands  of the police implicating these men in  similar crimes in Princeton, Penticton  and Kelowna. In one of valises taken  with the men at Enderby was found a  receipt for an express package shipped  to Vancouver. Detectives tracking this  package found stolen property which  had been taken in night robberies in  the three towns named.  Closing Up on Scroll of Honor  City Wants Names Proved Up  Editor Okanagan Commoner; Dear  Sir: The Municipal Council decided  some time ago to erect in the council  chamber an "Honor Roll containing  the names of men of Enderby city  and district0who served in the World  War. Great difficulty has been experienced in obtaining a correct and  complete list of these men; but, after  considerable revision, and with the  kind assistance of , the Enderby  branch of the G. W. V. A., the list  handed to you herewith has finally  been arrived at.  We are informed that owing to lack  of system \vhich ' has prevailed  throughout the Empire in deciding as  to what district men really belonged  to, the names of many men appear  on the rolls of several different  places. So, in order to keep clear of  this error and avoid infringing on  neighboring centres which have, or  intend to have, rolls of their own, the  Council have adopted, as the definition of an Enderby man, "one who  was residing within the Enderby post-  al district at the time of joining the  forces."  ��������������������������� 'lso, the Council .have decided to  place on the roll the names of i men  who went overseas, only.  We should be much obliged if you  would kindly publish the list in your  valuable columns and would ask any  and all of your readers-who may observe any - omission, or any error  whatsoever, - therein, to be kind  enough to notify the City Hall of same  It is almost too much to hope that  the list-will be absolutely correct and  complete,   but   for   the   credit  of  the  town   and   district   it   should   be   as  nearly so'as it is possible to have it.

University  ' Great,hopes are being held out for  increased accommodation in the University of British Columbia, to be pro-:  vided by the, government in time for  the opening of the fall term. Following the visit of, the JCiwanis delegation some weeks ago it became -apparent that citizens bf the province  were determined to see that the young  men and women-securing the required  standing for entrance in the University should be provided with the facilities of higher education.  Hon.Maclean, minister of education  skid it was his desire to take up the  matter immediately. It is now known  definitely that Hon. Dr. Maclean has  been working steadily upon a possible  solution and an announcement of the  plans-to~Be~followed-Uy~the govern^  ment is in sight. The minister has informed the Piovince that it is hoped  to go even one better than the Kiwanis  delegation asked, and make some arrangement, temporary penhaps, for the  accommodation of prartically all who  are qualified to enter the University  next term.  Delegates attending the conference  with the government at that time admitted reluctantly that they did not  hope to care for prospective increased  enrollment this fall, so Dr. Maclean's  plans will be doubly welcomed. As a  result it is expected that nearly 1200  University students may be provided  for during this coming term.  MRS.  VOGEL   PASSES  Mrs. Johanne Auguste Vogel, aged  83 years, nine month, 23 days, died  at the home of her son, G. A. R.Vogel,  last Friday morning, after an illness  of several weeks. Burial took place  Sunday afternoon- from the residence,  the remains being followed to the  grave by a large circle of friends and  neighbors of the afflicted family.  Mrs. Vogel came to Enderby eleven  years" ago, from Ontario. She leaves  to mourn her loss one son, R. Vogel,  of Enclerby, and one daughter, Mrs.  John Reid, of Port Arthur, Ont.

On this trip, Mr. Ruttan says, they  drove over roads that he is sure have  not had an auto over them since he  drove them 12 years ago. And they  had  some  interesting experiences.

Mackenzie King, leader of the Liberals  in Canada, is still harping on the political shortcomings ol' Hon. Arthur Meighen, premier oi"  the Dominion, in nn eli'ort lo arouse public sentiment against him and to satisfy the more radical  element of his, followers, to whom anything in the  way of noise againsl thc Premier is better lhan  no'noise al nil. His latest discovery was voiced  in a public speech somc nights ago at one of the  eastern ciiies, when Mr. King said, discussing Mr.  Meighcn's position al the Imperial Conference:  "No onc has given Mr. Mcighcn authority to lay  down any opinion in respect lo Canada's participation or non-participation in the foreign affairs  of lhe Km pi re. He has stolen lhe authority hc is  exercising and has no right in -Uic name of Canada, lo lay down any rule or any policy with respect lo inlernalional and Imperial affairs."  Possibly if Premier Meighcn's private opinion  were a'sked on the mailer of legal righls on thc  premises, hc woidd bc inclined lo agree wilh Mr.  King. Bul as a matter of fact, Mr. Meighen is thc  Premier of the Dominion and as Premier how  could he escape going lo London lo represent the  Dominion at lhc conference of Dominion Premiers? if wc arc lo judge by the works of lhc  two men, Mr. Meighen and Mr. King, surely Mr.  Meighen reprcsenls more of Canadian principles  and Canadian standards than does Mr. King.  Anyway, Mr. Mcighcn is Premier and Mr. King is  nol, which is something in point of order.  Municipal Business Taxation  Armslrong  is  tackling  the question of more  ..equitable business taxation in real earnest. This  is a problem that all small towns-nnd cilics must  meet at some time or other, and it is only surprising that some localities put it off so long. Thc  question is pushed aside from dav to day, month  lo monlh, year lo year, and all the while the inequality of business taxation goes on. For instance one firm paying lhe ordinary business tax  of say $10 a year, will open up and slock two,  lhree. four, live, and six departments with goods,  while along side of him another will open a one-  line store. Thc same amount of business tax is  levied upon each, though lhe department store  is virtually conducting several lines of business.  An Ottawa despatch states, that there is the possibility of a general Dominion-election early ncxt  year.    It is said the tariff question will bc made  the campaign issue by thc political leaders.    In  this  there is a mistake.    The tariff will bc thc  issue allright, but  the political  lenders will  not  make it' the issue.    Thcy would be  happy,  no  doubt,  if  lhcy  could   make  something  else  thc  campaign  issue.    But   the  tarilf  is  already   the  issue; made so by the people, nol by lhc political  leaders.     For some  time  thc people of Canada  have been looking inlo thc operation of IhislarilV  business.    Thcy arc told the larill" is imposed in  order lo protect Canadian manufaclurers.    Who  are these Canadian manufacturers?   Isn't il good  American dollars, for the most part, interested in  Canadian manufacturing plants.    Highly per cenl  of it is.    And what docs lhc Canadian tarilf do  for Ihcse manufacurcrs?    Il adds -10 per cenl lo  lhe price of an American machine made in Canada, whether il be a  Ford  car,  a  Chev car, an  Overland, a binder, a harvester, a plow, a rake, a  tedder; a washing machine, a sewing machine, a  bike, a baby carriage,  a  wagon, a  buggy���������������������������anything manufactured in Canada���������������������������or assembled in  Canada^���������������������������cosls   thc  Canadian   consumer  40   per  cent more in Canada than lhe same machine or  article can bc bought for on the American side.  And������������������thc manufacturer gets thc 40 per cent, added  to the price.   At thc same time it enables thc 20  per cent of Canadian manufaclurers to raise thc  price of their machinery to meet the 40 per cent  advance caused by lhc larill.   Thc old cry of lhc  politician that thc big hog of commerce would  conic into Canada under a low tariff and gobble  up the market doesn't work oul. What does work  out���������������������������and this is what lhc people of Canada arc  thinking most about���������������������������is this: that the higher thc  tariff  the  higher  the price,  wilh   Ihc  Canadian  manufacturer   hitting   the   top   notch   and     the  American manufacturer in Canada a close second  ���������������������������-anti ail coming out of the pocket of lhc consumer and adding lo thc wealth of Ihc manufacturer, be he Canadian or American. ,  These are Ihc opinions onc hears expressed by.  good staunch Canadians.    Thcy arc straws that  indicate thc trend of. thought cn lhe tariff issue.  From   this  il  would  appear  that  our  Canadian  mhufaclurers   and   American  manufaclurers   in  Canada have somewhat overdone it in their ell'orts to draw down all Ib.e law would allow and  make no concession lo lhc consumer.  j4������������������ci v c+pRiPEm-i,;  vyp,yes , be Criecl,  yes . pe  ve   Civic  fry ./   s  1-  pri  "J  ?

Slow.to Learn from the Experience of Others  Possibly there is no man in any industry who is  as slow to learn from the experience of others in  the same industry as Ihc farmer, as a class. He  refuses lo accept the experience .of others as any  indication' of what hc can and cannot do. Jn this  respect tlie farmer is behind his brothers in almost every other line of businessman: Here is  wherc thc farmer loses. Books broaden thc vision  of thc farmer, increase his success and give many  pleasant hours to his life.- Thc farmer has to deal  with more phases of learning than arc found in  any other occupation. A profound study of soils,  live slock raising, rotation of crops and marketing deals wilh practically every science.

We  are prepared to supply on  short notice  GEO. tt. SHARPE  Wholesale  and   Retail   Butcher  Enderby, B. C.   "  Some time ago I had a rather remarkable dream. It was a day dream,  but it had all the reality and the convincingness of those experiences of  the night time through which as the  ancients believe, the gods brought  guidance to perplexed mortals. It  is the dream of a dweller in the East,  aud hence it is much less substantial  than any of the dreams that you in the  West have already made real. In my  dream, I found my self in what looked  like oan ordinary school room. But  instead of boys aud girls there were  seated on the forms rows of men ancl  women, all busily writing on "slates  (for it was a very old fashoned school)  But my eye was caught and held by  the teacher. I cannot tell you what  she wore .but it was something very  simple and very pretty, and reminded  me not a little of the dress of the Ancient Greeks. It was .her face, however, that interested me most, not tht  features alone, though they were those  of a goddess, but the expression. In  it kindliness and sternness, childlike  faith and the wisdom that is as timeless as eternity, were all combined.  It must have been that she saw my  look of bewilderment as well as pf  reverence, for she beckoned te me and  as I approached, she s-y'd:  "Do you  not know  me."  I answered, "Indeed madam, I seem  to have seen your-face at many times  ancl in many places, but your name  just now escapes me".  "My name,",said she, "is Democracy,  and this is one of my schools."  "Have you many schools?" I ventured to inquire.  "Very many,"- she replied, "and in  ,'many  places.

Of course,  I know who the _ right ones are, and  they ought to know&if they really pro-  fitted by the lessons in the other subjects. But1 it is sad to think of the  silly mistakes which some of my best  pupils make even yet. I wouldn't  wonder if the girls did not, eventually,  become more proficient in this class  than the boys, though it is too early to  venture anything more than a hope  that such will be the case. There is  another thing to be said, and that is,  that in most of these laboratory classes boys and girls must work together,  if a correct answer is ever to be obtained, o   .

Why, contact which "reads, 'Opportunity brings res-  with other children is what they most Ponslbility' and the other 'Handsome  need!" *s as handsome does", and have them  I must here remark that though her  pupils were all grown, persons, some  of them, indeed, no longer young, she  constantly referred to them as boys  and girls, ancl when I, noticed the- age-  old wisdom incher eyes,-I understood  why. and instinctively I came to regard them as boys ancl girls too.  She went on, "You see mine is a  school=^for-=-girls=as=-well-^as--for^=boys?=  For many years, in fact, for a great  many centuries, J have been anxious  to admit girls to my classes, but the  boys objected so strongly that I did  not insist, for J knew that they would  come to my point of view in time.  Then, too, there were some girls who  said that boys were too rough and  there were others who said that Mis3  Aristocracy's .select school was much  to be preferred to mine, since sho  taught self-indulgence and snobbishness and snubbing, and how to turn  out your toes when you bow, and how  to turn up your nose when you meet a  working man or a working girl in the  street, and, what is more, if you learned all the lessons and paid all the fees  and passed all the examinations, you  were given at graduation, a beautiful  family tree. ' _ *  "All this had pretty well changed,  however. There was a great fire a  few years ago, and Miss Aristocracy's  school was burned to the ground with  most of the school-books. And many  of the pupils, both the boys and the  girls, (for she had a boys' department  as -well) perished with it. Indeed,  many of my very best pupils lost  their lives in trying to put the fire put.  But worst of all for the poor lady, her  pupils blame her for starting the fire.  They say she dropped a lighted match  among a pile of prejudices and hatreds  ancl   other rubbish  that  should  have  write them each.a thousand times."  Now things happen very fast in a  dream, and I suppose it didn't, take  nearly as long for her to say these  "things as it does for me to report them.  Certainly all this time the pupils were  copying faithfully, with a good deal of  scratching, and that movement of the  tongue which is supposed to help to  get_the_l_e_tters_ ju_st_right.            "Would you like to see some of their  work?" the teacher asked. "Certainly," I replied. "Very well then,"  she said, "we wjll begin with this  row of pupils. This is a class in the  management of democratic institutions of all���������������������������the public school. Some  of these pupils are school trustees,  some are University-trustees, and I  have a sprinkling of professional ad-  min'strators, superintendents, presidents, and the like, who didn't learn  their jobs before they began them,  ancl who, when thoy came to mo first,  thought that all they had to do was to  raise money ancl make speeches, and  who insisted'on playing on. the school  grounds a nasty and really dangerous  game called  "sitting on the lid.'*  She held up one boy's slate ancl said  sternly, "What is this you have written? Read the copy."  And the boy read rather stammer-  ingly,'"Brains are of more value than  buildings."  "Now, read what you have written,"  and the boy read, "Buildings are of  more value than brains."  "There now," said the teacher, rub  out all your work and start again, and  remember, .if you make another mistake, I will send you to the Primary  class, for six months so that you can  learn how to read." While the teacher  was doing this, I noticed the behaviour of two other boys who were fev-  I looked over the boy's shoulder ancl  read in clear, fair words the copy  wliich the teacher had written for him  It was, "An ounce of- principle is worth  a pound of policy." I was rather interested in the third boy, for he bore  a strange resemblance to a government  official I had once known, so I looked  at his slate too, ancl read a somewhat  similar maxim, "A yard of sense" will  reach farther than a mile of regulations."  1 could see the boy shake his head  rather dubiously as lie perused his  copy, though he was careful to do  so when the teacher could not see him.  Poor fellow, it manifestly contradicted  A moment. later, the teacher took ���������������������������  hold of another boy by the coat-collar '  and shook him till his teeth actually/  rattled and then I saw that though she'  was gentle and kindly in. her manner,  she had a temper also, like some other  gentle and kindly, women that I know, '  and admire.

"This boy," the" teacher ,-explained,  "is not really one of my pupils. He,  came to- me a few days ago from" a -  school kept by old Mr. Bureaucracy  down the street. It is/a decayed sort  of institution, and the old fellow has  no more sense than to teach such silly  expressions as these under the belief,  I suppose,. that they are the quint- .  essence of wisdom. The rest of his  curriculum consists, I am tojd,* in  teaching his pupils to wind yards a.nd  yards of red tape without a single  wrong turn or. twist.

"Indeed," she replied, rather dryly, I  thought, "then perhaps you will be  interested in this other class, ancl she  directed my attention to another row  of seats. There were far more girls  in this class, I may say, than there  were boys, and so I was prepared for  the information that this was a class  of teachers. I noticed, however, a  a number of rather serious looking,  a number of rather serious looking,  spectacled boys at the end, wearing  caps and gowns.

Then thcy all believed,  and many of tbem still do. that the"  mind and tbo body have no relationship one to the other, and all inspite  of thc fact that for the hist two  thousand years I. have been urf'ng  with them a book maxim that I got  from a Roman age, which reads, "A  sound mind in a sound body." Some  of them don't even write the word  "education" correctly yet. Many pf  the professors write it E-r-u-d-i-t-i-o-n  ���������������������������as if the more one ate the healthier  one became���������������������������and many others write  it E-x-a-m-i-n-a-t-i-o-n���������������������������as if the best  way to make a plant grow was to pull  it up by.the roots every week or so,  to see "how fast it is growing."  "You must understand, of course,  that what you have seen this morning is only a small part of my school.  You ought to see thee workshops and  the play grounds. I may seem quite  old-fashioned in some of my methods j  S clear days, 11 part clear, 11 cloudy I of   teaching,   but   they   are   no   older  Mean temperature for month, 62.63; 'aftei. al]> than the numan nature thcy  are i- tended to fit.  In our workshops, however, we are  introducing a new scheme of organization, based on the, very interesting  arid, I think, the perfectly sound principle that man is more important  than machinery, and in our plaj'-  grounds and our other social activities we are finding a great deal of  use in an old maxim which says-, "Do  unto others as you would that they  should do unto you."  "Oh, ��������������������������� I am really sorry that you  must go. Perhaps we have some  classes that later you yourself would  like to attend, for I can see that you  have been interested. Here is a booklet which you may care to show to  your friends. Youwill see that we are  quite up-to-date in, our advertising  methods at least."  These words followed my repeated  protestations that wnile I would like  to stay a day or even a week, I really  could not remain any longer just then.  But certainly I would return, especially since this rather remarkable  teacher had, in part of our conversation which I ha/e omitted to report,  informed me that she intended to give  a course of lessons especially for  school teachers and parents, on the  true meaning of the terms freedom  ancl discipline. I had often feared  that these terms could never be reconciled, but she insisted that they  can. -  When I stepped outside, I glanced  for a moment at the cover of the  booklet which .had been placed in my  hand. It read, as I recall, now, as  follows: "The School Democracy���������������������������  open every year from January 1st to  December 31st. Instruction given in  all languages. Special- classes for  backward peoples." Ancl at the bottom was a sentence, manifestly a quotation. This sentence was rather  quaint in its wording, ancl some of the  more learned among you may recognize its source. It read: "Therefore,  my son, get wisdom, ancl with all. thy  getting get understanding, for thc  merchandise o* wisdom is better than  silver, ancl the gain thereof than fine  gold."      , -   -     -  And then I awoke. Like other  dreams, it seemed quite real while  it lasted.' Now that 1-look at it by  daylight of my working consciousness, it; does not seem to hang together after the logical fashion of a  mathematical demonstration, .or even  after the artistic fashion cf a well-  told story. But I like to recall it all  the same.  The Tearful TomJ  I  met a weeping toad today,  And  bitter were his woes,  I paused a moment o;ni my way,  As tears coursed, down his nose.  "Oh, tell me, toad," quoth I, "I pray  Why art so lachrymose?"  "I can't restrain tihe acrid tear,"-  Sobbed  he  w.ith  streaming chops,  "For bankruptcy's my lot, I 'fear,  ���������������������������Despite the best or crcips,  For since there is no sale for beer  I cannot sell my ihoips."  ���������������������������J.
