Martin, secretary-treasurer of the Okanagan Auto Club and  Good Roads Association, was in Enderby" Wednesday from Vernon. He  reports continuous work being done  by the association, but so far its inability to get action on the part of  the government In the matter of the  provincial highway through the Okanagan to the Coast.  Next Wednesday and Thursday the  Armstrong fall fair will be held, and  it is already characterized as an assured success, this judgment being  based on the number of entries now  in hand.   With weather conditions so'of road  Mr. and Mrs. G'. Lidstone are visit-  Ing friends at Okanagan Centre for a  few days.  A. Turner was taken to the Salmon  Arm hospital last week suffering from  lymphingitis.  R. L.

The Franco-Canadian sample train  and French Government spectacular  -France."-now���������������������������touring -Canada, -will  pass through to Vernon on Sept. 27th,  where it will be open to the public on  that evening and until 2 p.m. the following day. There will be one performance of "France," the proceeds  from which going to the maimed ancl  needy French soldiers. We understand an effort Is to be made to have  tbe train stop at Enderby, but there  Is no assurance that It can be so arranged-  Why Germany i* Recovering  Sir Trevor Dawson, managing director of Vickers Limited, London, recounting his experiences while travelling in Germany a month ago, states  that he found that several of the large  works were operating at full capacity  and were regular hives of industry.  Labor appeared to be working harmoniously and as a result the output  was very high. The average wage Is  four marks ($1 if the mark were normal) an hour, with the eight-hour day  ln general use.

This shows  what could be done if the Government would give the settlers a chance  instead of bringing men 'and teams  from the��������������������������� outside to do the work-   -  '.RETAIL  MERCHANTS MEET  ��������������������������� Messrs.-Wheeler, Speers, McMahon  and Koury represented the merchants  of Enderby at a banquet given In the  Kalamalka Hotel, Vernon, last Friday evening by the Retail Merchants  Association of the Okanagan. The  gathering was-a very representative  one, every town In the Valley being  represented- J3. M- Trowerr., secretary of the Dominion Executive Council of the. association, and J. A- Pan-  field, of Winnipeg, president of the  Dominion Poard and Executive Council, were the piincipal speakers of the  evening, each telling of the good results which have followed the organization bf retail merchants In every  city and town where the association  is established. Speeches were also  made by local representatives of the  various towns In the Valley where the  organization is established-   The key-note of all the speeches  was the good that has resulted from  organization. The Oriental question,  and the effect of Inroads upon the retail merchants' field by Japanese and  Chinese, were particularly emphasized by the speakers, the clarion-cry  of all being that unless the white  merchants waken up to their position  and unitedly combat the growing evil  they will find themselves crowded out  by Orientals.  CO-OPERATIVE HARVESTING  Mrs. Thos. Gray was in Enderby on  Tuesday from Mara. Questioned regarding the harvesting of crops, Mrs.  Gray said the yield this year has been  the "best ever," and never In her 27  years residence at Mara has she seen  the harvesting finished so early or so  satisfactorily, and with such good re'  suits all-round.  Every farmer has his hay baled and  grain threshed, and root crops ready  to come In, and soon fall plowing will  be well underway. And the cost of  handling the heavy crops has been  not more than a third of the usual  cost. She says the secret^ bf It Is in  that the Mara-Grindrod farmers this  year adopted the co-operative harvesting idea; each helping the other.  By working together In this way they  not. only did the work well but finished up quickly and without delays.  What cash was paid out for farm labor and  machines was paid to local  Early In the season the Commoner  was condemned by certain Individ  uals for the psltion lt took in regard  to the tendency then shown by these  individuals tQ bolster up the local  baseball teams of the Valley by importing semi-professionals from the  Coast cities. We predicted at the  outset exactly what finally happened.  There was no other outcome possible  and we do not take any credit for  having prophesied.' what the net ^result would be. We see by the Cranbrook Courier that other districts are  faced by the same problem. We are  glad to see the Courier adopts a similar attitude as that taken by the  Commoner, and still*" maintained. The  Courier says:  "With the tirmination of the baseball season at hand and the plans being discussed for next season, there  is argument for and against professional baseball. The consensus of  opinion, however,- Is favorable, to  amateur ball. In view of what happened in Fernie on Labor, pay and  Cranbrook's experience with; professional-lacrosse'and ball players some  years ago. It may be letting .the* cat  out of the bag to inform Courier  readers that six Calgary professional  players were engaged' "to play with  the. Hillcrest* team at. Fernie Labor  Day for a purse of $750.00. The mair  ager of the Wh'te Spruce team, learn,  ing of this, boarded the train and met  the incoming Calgary players, of fey-  ing them an additional fee if they  would "turn down" Hillcrest and play  with the White Spruce aggregation.  Being out for the money first and last  and always, the players.went over to  the White Spruce team. This little  Instance Is related* merely to "show  bow crooked "professional baseball f's-  There Is no assurance whatever as to  the game being conducted on the level  On the contrary there is every likll-  hood of a "frame up" before the game  |s played. Professional baseball wl||  recleve no support frfm this paper in  this district. Pros. Hilled lacrosse  and baseball here twelve years agc������������������  and there hasn't been Interest here  since. This city or any other town In  the district can not afford to keep a  lot of lazy ball players lounging  around doing nothing. Let us stay  -with^the^amateur^game."  XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX  X MARA ITEMS X  XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX  The tie drive is now on and it looks  like old times to see men at work on  the river.  Miss Ruby Campbell came in from  Sicamous and spent two days with her  mother last week.  We understand very fine. prospects  are showing at  Smith's  Camp,  Mara-  Lake, and that a deal is pending for  some of the claims.  Miss Byng, who has been staying  with her sister, Mrs. Feilden for the  past year, left on Monday for the  coast,' where she has accepted a posi-  tlon?  The frost last Saturday put an end .  to tender plants and vegetables, but it  has   brought   a   welcome   change  In  weather for the second crop of clover  and the outstanding grain.  They are making good progress on  the Mara-SIcamous road, and in a  week or two will have a through connection with the camp beyond Gib- ���������������������������-  braid's. There will then be- the' big  bluff to blast out at the Narrows.  STRUCK BY AUTO STAGE  Just Going To  He was just going to help a neighbor when he died.

Jt is an  upstanding word and at once makes  one think of sturdy simplicity, the  kind of quality which one associates  with a Boy Scout. How different  in appearance is its opposite EXTRAVAGANCE, a word which at  once suggests as ostentatious irregular character, boastful as well  as wasteful.  Services to Community.  Now thrift means saving money  and miserliness means saving money,  but they are not the same kind of  saving. The thrifty person saves  money for a purpose, the miser saves  money for itself. The thrifty person saves so as to have a bank account against bad times. His thrift  has for its object independence and  security, and is therefore in accordance with the Scout law. But miserliness is purely selfish, whereas a  Scout is told, to be thrifty so that  among other things heamay have  money with which to help "others  when they need it. The Scout must  be careful not to carry his thrift  too far. You usually find that the  , thrifty person has a bank account,  whereas the miser keeps his money  in. a stocking where it can do no  good because it is not kept in circulation. The thrifty person puts  his money where it draws interest,  thus adding to what he already has  got, and also performing a service to  the community. i  By letting the community have  the use of his money while he is not  spending it, the thrifty person does  a service to the community for which  the community is willing to pay interest. The community, however,  has just as little use for the miser  as for the spendthrift.  ���������������������������E.   W.

The two things  which struck me most were the lamentable ignorance of the rank. and  file of the people concerning the very  A B Cs of economics, and the intense  antagonism felt towards High Finance, Wall Street, Big Business and in  general those who wield enormous  power in tho running of affairs in this  country. ,  The people who are now suffering  hardships are totally unable to reason  why things, should have been allowed  to become as unsatisfactory as they  are. Most of thon*^ arc convinced that  bad times have been" brought about by  scheming capitalists, either by their  overreaching avariciousness during  the boom, or by a vicious desire to  "clown labor" and the common people  as a whole. The revelations made by  governmental pgencies and by other  investigators regarding profiteering,  graft and othcr condemnablo practices  in high places have inflamed a hatred  already hot because of the extortionate  prices which wero exacted during the  war. Where employment has become  serious, the bitterness is particularly  intense. The terrible fall in- security  prices has also imbittered those who  had been able to save and invest, a  little money. Here and there, too,  one runs across disappointment over  tho failure of the Republican administration to give the country good  times.  The thought burned into my mind is  the tremendous need for taking steps  to disseminate all over the, country  somo elementary idea cf the workings  of -economics. Apparently not the  slightest effort is made in the ordinary schools to give the coming generation any knowledge of the kind of  world they are going to have to make  their living in. Nothing evidently  is taught them about how work is prb-  vlded'!>through the operation of business enterprises,' about the' necessity  for earning profits in order that a business may live; about the functions ot  capital, about interest, about marketing, or, in short,'anything whatever as  to the industrial and financial scheme  of things.  In the higher schools and in colleges  when such matters ore touched upon  it would appear as if the teachers and  professor too often have Socialistic  leanings and feel unfriendly towards  those whoso enterprise and courage  and capital have developed the nation's resources. This mental attitude  of teachers ancl professors is perhaps  not astonishing in view of the meagre sliare of the world's goods given  them  in return for their services.  No short-cut can be found for curing this dangerous situation.

It is pointed out that prices of the  things the farmer has to sell are  down to practically pre-war prices,  while a great deal of what he has to  purchase still remain away up in the  air. He is consequently unable to  buy as he would under ordinary circumstances. The farmer had to face  a mighty sudden and decidedly long  drop in the prices of all the things  he had to sell, and has certainly good  reason for -disgust at the extremely  tardy deflation of the hundred and  one things he is thc market to  He feels that an evening up  past due.  ���������������������������     o  Gave Lead To World  is  buy.  .long  Boys'  Clothing  Come in ancj see  our new styles  for the Fall  School Pays  Quality Goods in our Grocery  Department  DUNCAN BROS.

It will call, too, for the  enlightened co-operation of thc newspapers, magazines and other publications which deal in any way with business and financial mutters. The moving picture industry should also be enlisted in this vital cause.  This work should appeal with special forcc to those Avho have succeeded  in amassing wealth under the liberal  laws .heretofore governing tho operations of business. If the present tendency be not checked, through education, laws may be brought about calculated not only to interfere with opportunities for en ruing wealth, but to  bring about economic conditions ruinous to those unable to forsce the consequences of the laws demanded by  them.���������������������������Forbes   Magazine  British press comment on Canadian  affairs sometimes has the defects of  its qualities. While it has the advantage in perpectivo, it often loses "in  a lack of appreciation of atmosphere.  Thus in its criticism of statesmanship  on this side of the Atlantic, it may be  misled by its erroneous reports, but  this may be offset hy its own analysis  of a leader's qualities on imperial affairs, especially when it has a close-  up view of that leader in its midst.  The Manchester Guardian's Ottawa  correspondent has suggested in a dispatch to England that Premier Mei-  ghen's absence in Britain has caused  him to lose ground with the situation  in Canada. "This is rather absurd.  During the Premier's visit to London,  there was nothing of a political nature happening in the Dominion to  cause the loss of any home ground to  Meighen. Rather, every man, whatever his shade of politics, took rather  an interest, and in many cases a peculiar pride in the fact that Canada  was being so well served at the Imperial conference.  But the Guardian leaves this questionable subject and goes on to say:  "Premier Meighen has helped "nobly  to give a lead to Europe and the  world ih such, matters as the. crying  need for international agreements to  stop squandering money in the building of navies, and in the so-called  Pacific question, .which should not be  a question.at all if men would get together and talk about it."  The Guardian says that Premier  Meighen has made to the important  but insular counsels of Britain at the  crucial moment a detached, dispassionate contribution that the history  of the world will note as helpful to  peace. ancl understanding. He has  gone back to face, continues the paper, a domestic situation which takes  no account of the way he has spoken  for his country in the momentous  world .question dealt with by the Imperial conference.  "This is a familiar experience to all  statesmen," the article concludes,  but it is. a fat-; which statesmen a  hundred years hence, even across the  Atlantic will not suffer for. There is  nothing surer than that the world  politics of today will be parish-  _piLTnp___polttics^.then,_so^itliaWEr_ftmicr.  Meighen may take even the adverse  by-election at Medicine Hat composedly."  This is the philosophical way to put  it. But we know that there is no  philosophy in politics. Yet the Premier's overseas service will weigh  heavily when tho different parties  lange against each othcr in t.hoscoming struggle. A Laurier might well  make him doubt, where a Mackenzie-  King will not bring a sleepless moment. And if thc new political phase,  tho Fanners' party, may bo ominous  in its strength, it docs not appear  that Crcrar has that magnetism or  political acumen which makes for  victory.-Kamloops   Standard-Sentinel.
