It seems to us it would be quite in  order for the menfolk to roll their  pants up to the knee as the girls roll  their stocking down from the knee.  One style is about as attractive as  the other.  There are more water users in  Enderby this year than ever before.  It may not be generally kown, but  the fact should be made note of that  the water supply this year, during  the long dry spell, was barely sufficient to meet the demand. Should  not some   provision   be   made   each  Mr. J. A. Mackelvie, M. P., visited  Enderby and district this week, meeting many old  friends  and  taking up  with them some of the problems that  have been discussed by them with^him  and are still unsettled.   Mr. Mackelvie  shows the effect of his experience in  attendance at his first session of Parliament.    Meeting men from all parts  of Canada and discussing with them  the problems of legislation which have  had to be dealt with, has enlarged the  perspective and broadened the. understanding  cf our  member.   "Mr.   Mackelvie  has    taken   up  many  matters  with .the vaiious departments at Ottawa,  and  has  been  exceptionally successful  in  getting a hearing,  and  in  some cases action.    He has not, however, got action on every proposition  presented, but feels that he has made  progress   and   Is   hopeful   of   accomplishing greater things on his return  to Ottawa.    Mr. Mackelvie is visiting  the people of the district in order" to  learn, their needs and how he can be  of hetter service to them as their representative in  the "Federal "house.---  "-One thing that impressed Mr. .Mac-  Jcelvie in  his -rounds  at   Ottawa  was  Ofifr lible*rnaxinir^iiTwhich^ihT'i^er-'  ests of Japan are" looked after-by the  Japanese  representative there.    And,  coupled with this, he found the mind  of the average Easterner a blank on  the question of the Japanese and Chinese   menace.    Tbey   seemed   to  be  afflicted    py   what   Thomaa   Prison  has called the 'atrophy of perception'  when it comes to discussing the Oriental question.    The eye sees but no  message goes from it to the brain, and  despite   unquestioned   Vision   of   the  fact of the menace there is no sensing  of it by the individual before whom it  is placed.  They do not know what the question  involves, and cannot be made to realize it however cleaily it is presented.  This increases the difficulty experienced by the Western- members in  getting action in Parliament, or even  in impressing the public mind of the  East^on^the^importance-^of���������������������������the-"ques-  tion as a practical proposition.  THIS SURELY SETTLES IT  Mrs. Cunningham and child returned on Saturday from a visit to  Victoria.  Mrs. John Bacon spent the weekend with friends here, returning to  Armstrong Monday.  Mr. Lowe, the contractor for the  Mara-Sicamous road, was a passenger to Vernon on Monday.  Mr. and Mrs. Doerflinger motored  from Armstrong on Sunday to visit  the latter's parents, Mr. and Mrs.  Thos. Gray.  Doris Neave is visiting her aunt,  Mrs. Bodin, and incidentally looking  up old school chums. She is attending high school at" Victoria.  Mr.Harley came up from the Coast  to join his wife and family who have  been here a short time, leaving again  on Monday for Okanagan Lake for  the fruit season.  Mrs. J. Campbell and children,  who have been visiting Mrs. Rupert  Davy, returned to the Coast last  Wednesday, Dot Davy accompanying  them on a short visit.  The Fish Inspector paid us a visit  a feW'days, ago and put a stop to the  practice of spearing salmon at the  bridge. It seems rather a small piece  of business, as very few are speared,  and it suppl'es ��������������������������� good sport and  healthy recreation for the kiddies.  FAVORS POLITICAL ACTION-  Director of the United Farmers of B.C.  Speaks His Mind on Politics  A wise man of leisure writes the  Toronto Saturday Night from Charlottetown, P. E. I. as follows, which  we commend to our friendly agriculturists :  Mr. Editor: All men rich and poor,  and whether high or low in station  would like to be accounted wise even  as you. and I. As for myself, being  a man of abundant leisure, I find great  comfort and satisfaction in that passage in Ecclesiasticus, 38th chapter  and 14th verse which states that, 'The  wisdom of a learned man cometh by  opportunity  of  leisure,   and   he   that  - In the United-Farmer, oflicial organ  of the Farmers' party in this Province  a communication'.is. printed from a  director of that organization which in-  .dipates^clearly_-^������������������ij;rcnd/of ^thought  of the farmersT"   ' ' - -^  "Finance is the hardest-question to  handle, you say, and I doubt will be-until the Farmers .see a tangible result of  the work of the United Farmers; then  they will not think the few dollars they  are asked for for dues too much; but  there is no doubt that at present a  number think the present dues are too  high.  "Now the blame for the slackening  interest is owing to the resolution  passed at the general convention 'not  to enter politics.' In my own opinion  a greet mistake was made at this time  when every other province.���������������������������excepting  Quebec has thrown its hat in the ring  politically, and when the farmers are  winning all along the line our farmers  wonder what we are doing marking  [time. They are of the firm opinion  that we cannot hopo for anything to  better farming conditions_from_cither  the United Farmers are committed  to the policy of not entering politics,  it would be good business to have a  committee appointed from your directorate to confer with the Farmers! party of the Prairies and Hon.T  A. Crerar and go into the fruit question thoroughly with them and try  to convince them, that the fruit In  dustry needs the protection and that  they are not paying a great , deal  more  for  their  fruit  in  consequence.  "I have received a copy of a. letter  sent you by the Farm and Home  paper, and what I have, written answers it pretty well. I am of the  opinion that the sooner we get political action the better." Those members who at present opp&se it are  strong party men, but so was I at  one time. I see where my interests  demand my support of thee Farmers'  party and it is not good business to  vote against one's interests, and if  we can get some good speakers,  clear in argument, the majority^ of  those now objecting will fall in line.  "Furthermore, I support the Farmers' party because there is no chance  of purer politics from the other  parties, and, wiiile we cannot- expect  the farmers to be perfect, still they  will, I am sure, do' much Tiett'er than  either of the others." Again, we comprise 50 ' per" cent of the -population"  and create . the. wealth^ upon" .which,  with the exception of' mining, every  other industry depends, and" ^the  whole , population, with the exception  of those" engaged '{in" mining."-" Why1,1  then,.should we give up..the-"government .of the .country to lawyers and  doctors, etc.," especially "asf weVhave  experienced tr"J government ^TTy^them  since; we had a , government" 'arid'  nothing' has been done io~ help tlie  farming industry."

That noble passage was written  larger  size the wood-pipe main laid I m������������������Te 'J1?" 2>000 years ago and is thus  when the system was put in some 20  years ago?  The average yield of wheat that  has been threshed in the vicinity of  Enderby is 40 bushels to the acrej  oats, 80 bushels, and barley 60 bushels. The "rains of the past week put  a stop to threshing for two days, but  the machines are te be started up  again today, provided the weather  continues clear. Mr. Hassard reports,  he finished threshing ten days earlier  this year than ever before in his thirty years2 experience on his farm.  Miss Bowes, of Hullcar, is assisting  Mrs. McPherson in the Enderby Hospital this month. Tho new operating  ward was finished a week or more ago  venerable in years as it is sublime in  diction. The writer of Ecclesiasticus  proceeds to elaborate his theme as  follows: 'How can he get wisdom that  holdeth the plough and that glorieth  in the goad; that driveth oxen and is  occupied In their labors, and whose  talk is of bullocks. He giveth his  mind to make-furrows and is diligent  to give the kine fodder." A little further on the writer tells us: "They  shall not be sought for in public council nor sit high in the congregation.  They shall not sit on the judge's seat,  nor understand the sentence of judgment, they cannot declare justice and  judgment and ihey shall not be found  where parable's are spoken."  O that the men of Ontario and Alberta had read these words of wisdom  and taken them to heart before they  placed in power the men "whose talk  is to bullocks."  of the old parties, and with prices oi  farm produce down almost 50%,  and no great reduction in the cost of  living outside farm produce.Groceries  are down a little, dry goods hardly at  all, and farm implement up 15 per cent-  Why is there any wonder that farmers, seeing their brothers In other  provinces doing something to help  themselves, are anxious ln B. C. to  do likewise?  "There is. no question of doubt  that the farmers at the next federal  election will elect a sufficient number  of members to make it necessary for  one of the other parties to form a  coalition with them, and it is on the  cards that they will win a majority,  because the towns are making up  their minds to support the farmers-.  Now, under these (Circumstances, for  the farmers not to have a political  party and send members to Ottawa  is a suicidal policy. The prairie  farmers are out for free fruit and  implements, and unless we have  members elected and supporting  them, they are not likely to listen to  members supporting either of the  other parties. It is  far more ne  cessary to have members of the  Farmers' party than of the Conservative or Liberal parties, because  they are not at all likely to disturb,  the existing tariff.  "Last year at the by-election in  this riding it was the tariff question  that beat Col. Edgett and nothing  else, and we can win at the general  Forty Years an Invalid.

Mr. and.Mrs. Waby and sons  came to Enderby about 15 years ago,  and during all the years of the'r residence here she has been confined to  her home most of the time, and to her  bed a great deal.

To Mr. Waby and family the sympathy of the community is extended.  A Ling and a Sucker"  While walking along the north shore  of Horse Lake, B.C., a man found two  dead fish under curious circumstances;  a ling about three feet long and a  sucker about 13 inches long. The  ling had Tied to swallow the sucker  head foremost but the body of the latter was too thick for his throat and  the stiff fin on the back of the sucker,  acting like the barb on a fish-hook,  made it impossible for the ling to free  himself.    .  Altogether this year the Oliver government has bprrowed $11,000,000 and  can, under an Act of the government,  borrow $7,500,000 more. The Rossland  Miner says, it would be interesting to  know if the bank has grabbed the proceeds of the last $1,000,000 loan, as was  the case with practically all the other  loans made.

Itis"  preposterous, it says, that the Minister  of Lands can obtain $900,000 for a  court house for Prince Rupert, a town  of around 5,000 people, and at the  same time the minister-tells the people  of Grand Forks that he has no money  to carry out the irrigation project  there. Ancl mere than this, the Minister gave assurance that around a million dollars was put in the Conservation fund this year for the Grand Forks  and other like irrigation projects.

Thursday, August 25, 1921  When Are We Going to End Freak Legislation?  Any liquor law lhat British Columbia has or is  likely to havc will not serve the public need so  ���������������������������well as lhc old law whcn-liquor was sold in all  hotels properly conducted and in compliance  with government regulations. Treating abuses  and lax enforcement of Ihc then existing law. resulted in it becoming unpopuUir with thc people,  with lhc result that a prohibitory law was pui on  the sla I uic books. This was followed after a trial  of ;i venr or Iwo by Ihe present Moderation Act.  which depends for its success upon thc amount  of booze i'ie governn*"*Mit can sell under certain  mone3r-making restrictions.  And   now   thc  hotel iitmi   of   Ihe.   Province  aro.  organizing a concerted cfT'orl to secure legislation  allowing thc hotels to serve beer lo guests* under!  government restrictions.    From all parts of the j  Province hotclmen arc preparing plans to assail j  thc provincial authorities in a last desperate stand  to-save  the smaller hotels from  extinction,, and  the   larger  hotels   from   serious   loss  of  revenue  that i.s, il ns reported, becoming ruinous,    it-is  --aid lhat more than 70 hotels of thc Province are  in danger of extinction because beer revenue is  closed lo them. '   c  Such a law is only just and reasonable. Long  enough llie. peonlc havc forced themselves by and  Ihrough freak legislation to pay dearly to the  bootlegger or othcr vendor, for liquor that should  be handled open and above-hoard thc same as  ice cream, pink lemonade, or any other.liquid refreshment. All men an'd women do not drink  beer. All men and women do not drink ice cream  sodas or lemonade and ginger beer, ctc.Somc do.  Win- nol let them if thev havc the money to buv?  At the conference called by the Provincial government in the Citjr ol" Vancouver lasl week to  disciiiss the unemployment situa.tion'v Premier  Oliver did not mince matters in his speech to the  men gathered "before him. Declaring a solution  of the problem was largely up to the men them."  selves. Premier Oliver opposed the paternalism  lhal put thc onus upon thc government lo find  employment for lhe unemployed.  "I am told lhal il is nol politic to speak lo people in this way. I don't care a hang for your  politics. 1 havc reached an age in life when thcrc  is noihing lhat you can offer mc. I don't care if  T leave my olTice tomorrow. I never sought il,  bul as long as I am Premier I shall tell you llie  God's truth as I know it."  It had been emphasized, declared the Premier,  lhat labor did not want charily. He did not care  by whal name they called il. Labor was coming  to the government and demanding relief from a  situation Whicb it said was intolerable. If lhe.  government was lo alf ord that relief il would  afford it in a direction that would not be done  under'ordinary circumstances. Labor might say.  it was prepared to give value for lhc money received for employment, but value was never got  from money put into relief works.  Continuing, Mr. Oliver said that jusl as ]ong as  hc was Premier lie would take thc Premier's responsibility. There were many perplexing problems facing thc government loday and he wanted  them to understand as emphatically as he could  lay it down that, speaking from a financial sland.  point, thc Province was nol in a good position.  Thcrc was a heavy provincial and municipal dcbl  and thcrc were many individuals who had their  interests heavily mortgaged. The money owing  was largely to people, outside the Province, and it  was draining lhc resources of the Province lo  meet their obligations on thc amounts borrowed.  "I say lhis," continued the Premier with a good  deal of heat, "and I say it without hesitation, that  lhe Government is nol getting value for the  money il is spending in these various undertakings. T say, also, ihat I don't believe for one  moment lhal if the Government borrows money  lo furnish employment, it will gel value for lhat  money, or it will be a very agreeable surprise to  thc Government if it does."  Dominion Highway will be Continued  Dominion Election Earlv?  Reports from Ottawa would indicate lhal there  i.s n slron.ff likVihnod of a general election being  held lhis Fall. And ihc Farmer's Sun," of Toronto,  claims lo bo informed from sources which arc almost 'unquestioned5 lhal the election will be "held  within two monehs.  Some months ago lhc Commoner predicted a  Federal election would bc held this Fall, the prediction being based upon thc obvious going to  pieces of ihe Union Government and thc certainly  of an early appeal to thc counlry in a desperate,  effort to stem Ihc adverse tide. It has becn reported from Ottawa lhat Premier Meighen is in  favor of early appeal lo thc country, bid that he  is bfing opposed by those of his colleagues who  desire to hold on as lrfrur as -possible.  There can be no doubt aboul lhc wisdom of  "P re i rri crVVrri Jgltei lVfr? cc i sitTiTri f~dcc reioTiV tV^7^Fm-=  all Canada knows, if hc does nol. lhat publif  opinion is unalterably opposed lo the policy of  manv men in Ihe Moitdien cabinet, as well  as Ihe general lendenev of Ihc Meighen administration Iowa rd the "Innetf circle" idea as opposed to the i-ilie* of the people.

Fraser, in a dispalclvfrom Ottawa, in the  Vancouver Province, says thc Dominion 'govern-"  ment has decided 16 carry on until the laic fall  the work on the .Banfl'-Windcrmerc highway in  Kootenay Park, B. CV and for. this purpose a  governor-general's warrant for $50,000 has been  approved. This highway is of particular importance to British Columbia, and under the terms  of the agreement 'between the Federal government aud~'the Province, must be completed by  January, 192!. Il is cslimatcd lhat 15,000 autos  will pass1 over lhis highway the first year it is  completed, and, on a basis of four passengers lo  a car, axxd: a daily expenditure of $5 for each person for a period of 10 days; it means thc sum of  $3,000,000 Avould be spent by tourists in thc first  year.

Simply because of the fact  lhat a considerable proportion of the  feed is in the nature of a by-product  6'r perhaps home-grown. Multiply  the swine activities on the farm and  it is necessary to purchase more meal  and grain at market prices. The  cost to produce mounts alarmingly.  So with  the  farm  flock of poultry.  What shall we feed hogs? Grain,  mill feeds and by-product feeds are  becoming scarcer than ever. Wheat  by-products are practically off tht  market. The feed markets of the future are most discouraging in prospect. The wholesale price of hogs  has not appreciated correspondingly.  The man who can feed hogs profitably today must ihave a comparatively cheap product or by-product to replace meal as largely as ' possible.  Such are scarce. Milk products form  the greatest of all. City and hotel  refuse is another. Green feed intelli-'  gently used, soiled or under the right  conditions, pastured, is a third. Barley ' is one-of the "best of Canadian  hog feeds ��������������������������� too little appreciated.  Elevator screenings, if of standard  quality, must be utilized wherever  available. The man who is raising  young pigs, who plans to feed them'  ���������������������������'���������������������������n-iort entirely, on a grain ration,  who has little or no milk or green  feed available, will almost certainly  be forced-to place a high valuation"-  on manure and experience if he'is to  get an even break next fa'a-VO- "B.

Beann,   a   London   publisher, a  recent     visitor.    To     Mm     America  */  seems, as compared with Englaand, a  paradise. "I wish," ho said, "I had  come hero twenty years ago, it would  have "made me a better business  man."  "You have no real poverty because  you have no inefficiency. If any of  you aro poor you don't wallow in it;  you have the determination to beat  it ancl get up. Because there is no  inefficiency and no poverty and no  hopelessness here, socialism will not  become rampant as it is in England  where our Labor party numbers 10,-  000,000 people and has imhued full  half the population with the ambition  to destroy capitalism. There is no  possible chance that this collective  idea will ever take root here, as it has  all over Europe since thc war because there is no soil in which it can  grow. This is an industrial El Dorado."  "You're kinder to dumb animals  than you are to me, your wife!"  "Well you try being dumb and see  how kind Til be."

As the breeze  sent its healing coolness over the  mountain, this coal broke into a darting tongue of flame. The greedy fellow flashed hither and thither seeking what it might devour. As it found  food, more flames joined -till a bright  beacon light glowed in the dusk. Ah,  if only it had been seen then!  No one came by; however. As the  night deepened the fire grew larger,  running merrily from bush to bush.  Suddenly it seemed to realize its freedom Cor, with a rush, it attacked a  great forest monarch, and, as the best  of slaves make the most tyrannical  masters, so. the small bright beacon  light became a raging monster. How  it snapped and hissed and roared as it  devoured the beautiful cool green  crown of the forest monarch!
