It ls estimated the cost of a suitable  rink building will be $4000 or $4500.  Thus at the present time we find ourselves between $1500 and $2000 short  of the amount requlredJJ  It has been definitely, stated that  unless the amount required for the  building is pledged beforehand work  shall not start on the building. It is  not considered fair that the heavier  contributors should have to bear the  burden of completing the building  should any number of subscribers fail  to meet the obligations pledged.  Here, then, is the position:  At a meeting of the City Council  Tuesday night the committee.appointed to look into the proposed park  site involved in the selection of a site  for the proposed rink building, reported as folows:  We beg to report that, in accordance with your instructions, we. have  made an inspection of the - ands offered by Mr. Poison as a park site "in exchange for tax sale lands .held by the  city.  The lands offered are as follows:  Map 1445, Block 2: Lots 8, 9, 10, 15'  16 and 17, owned by -S. Poison; Lots  11, 12, 13 and 14 owned by Mrs. Gilroy.  -Map 1445, Block 4: Lots 1, 2, 5, 6, 7,  8, 9, and 10, owned by S. Poison; Lots  3 and 4, owned by R. S. Williams.  Map 1445, Block 5: Lot 8 owned by  ' S.-F. Hartry; Lots 9, 10, 11, 12, 13 and  14, owned by S. Poison;  Lots 15 and  16, owned by0J. Gardner.  These lots, with the whole of Victor  Street, parts of Howard Ave, Poison  Ave. and Kildonan Ave., Lot 17, Block  5 and Lots 1 and 2, Block 1, owned by  the City, would give a total area of  about 10 acres.  .This  land has a frontage of about  one thousand feet to the river; it is  lieve the City of lands at present lying on its hdUds and bringing in no  revenue, and cause them . to become  tax-producing again;, and the basis of  the transaction, i. e.. assessment value, is fair, and equitable; and, as a  park is an indispensable part of the  equipment of every town,-and the proposal now under consideration offers  opportunity of -- obtaining ��������������������������� a" suitable  site, comparatively close to the centre  of the town, without the expenditure of any money except the trifling  sum involved in the. removal of one  very small house and the cost,of the  tranfer of the lands, we strongly  recommend that.Mr. Poison's offer be  accepted.  Respectfully submitted,  J. B. GAYLORD  ^ . JAMES NICHOL  Committee on "Park Site.  By unanimous vote .the Council accepted the report of the park site committee hnd the detail in connection  with the transfer of the properties involved is "now being worked out with  Mr. Poison.  With the-motter of sile as good as  settled giving Enderby the finest recreation park in the valley, it will be  for those who pledge themselves to  take shares in the propoed rink Ho  decide where the building shall be  erected. The free site offered by Mr.  -Walker���������������������������facing-the���������������������������park���������������������������ground���������������������������and-  virtually part of It, still is open for acceptance.  The question then'is. Do the citizens of Enderby want a skating rink  building and agricultural park" combined?  With twentya'businessmen pledging  themselves to contribute $2000, toward the rink project, ls $500 or $600  all that can be expected of the rest  of Enderby's citizens?  ThV.s project is a big thing. It  means everything to the future of Enderby and district.  After making so good a start are  we to fall down when the first pinch  comes? '" *���������������������������  We each must face these questions.  It isn't for somebody else to answer  them for us.  Each must satisfy himself as , to  whether he is doing his best or is attempting to side-step* the issue.  The whole p.oject will succeed or  fall in the measure of each individual's patriotism.  We can have a rink and.agricultural park if we are prepared to work  for it.  We shall not have it if we will not  work for it.

Word was received at the Enderby  post office this week that the post  office department had granted the tap-  plication for Enderby Rural Route No.  2, which has been so long standing  and that a call for tenders for delivery  of mails would immediately be made.  This route covers the Enderby-Mara,  east road as "far as Grindrod, then  crosses to Glen Mary ancl along the  upper Sal mon Arm road back to town.  Hospital Donation ^At Home"  Proves Very Successful  Possibly the most successful Hospital Donation Day the Hospital Auxiliary ladies have held was. that of  Saturday afternoon last. Officers and  members of the*-Hospital Board were  invited to participate in the reception  at the hospital and those participating  felt well repaid for their efforts by_see-  Ing the 'surprise and pleasure experienced by their visitors, many of whom  never had visited the hospital before  and did not realize the measure of perfection achieved there through the efforts of Matron McPherson and the  Hospital Board and Auxiliary.-  It has been said before, and by the  inspectors of hospjtials himself, that  Enderby's hospital is one of the com-  pletest and best conducted small hospitals in the Province, and it was easy  for those visitors who saw it last Saturday afternoon to realize this, for the  rooms from the entrance hall to the  laundry chute and from garret to basement, were gaily decorated with flowers from the hillside gardens of Mrs.  Robinson, and looked spotlessly  clean and cheery;. ,  "  -  Several patients were in the different wards, and these were looked  after- by Nurse McPherson while the  Auxiliary ladies arid members of the  Boafd conducted visitors through the  wards and served tea.  Many visitors brought with]them articles suggested by the Auiliary ladies,  and these were placed on the tables -  napkins, ���������������������������' pillowslips, pillows, bed  spreads, blankets, bath and plain towels, table cloth, baby hlanket, air  cushion, two ice- caps, one bottle bor-  ated gauge, half dozen teispoons, one  eiderdown, ' pudding .dishes, sauce  dishes, glass fruit dishes, jar of fruit,  old linen, batey shawl, flowers and  sack of apples. #    .  Then in the blanket box, the sum of  $21 was found? and in the operating  table box (for raising $50 to pay oft  the .balance still owing) Jthe sum of  $12.25 was found, to which was added  a balance of $8.75 left from the Mara  entertainment fund after the purchase"  of surgical instruments stand," giving  Matron McPherson $21 for tnis purpose..  "And, best of all, in addition' to all  these generous contributions by visitors, the Auxiliary ladies secured the  help of .sixteen ' new members who  signed' the Auxiliary membership- roll,  and became active in lending assistance in the good work which is being  carried on by the ladies and members  of the board.

Dysart was a business visitor  to Salmon Arm on Monday.  T. Dysart and T. W Lidstone attended the quartely meeting of the  U. F. of B. C. in Enderby last Thursday.  A special school meeting was held  in the school house last Monday night  to vote on borrowing money to build  a now school. It was decided to borrow $2000 and build a frame building  22x30, tenders to be let as soon as  possible.  Whose Business Is It?  The latest giant is John Anson, a  Norwegian, who stands 8 feet 9 inches, and weighs 503 pounds, and is  18 years of age. He wears a No. 21  shoe, and nine yards of cloth are re.  quired to make a suit for him.  Since the Provincial authorities accepted tho Vernon Road-Belvidere-  Knlght street way tlirough Enderby  as the primary highway through  town, the public works department  hasn't done a tap of work on the  roadway to put it in condition and  from Cliff street to the Salmon Arm  road the roadway Is the worst it has  ever been. Under the Act the provincial governme nt allows 60 per cent,  of the cost of up-keep for the maintenance of primary highways through  municipalities. But nothing Is said  as to who shall do the work nor how  the money shall be collected after the  work is done. And, with so much  work to be done on other streets, the  primary highway has gone shy of  much needed repairs and is a source  of real danger tp auto drivers.

The convention  assmbled at Penticton last week.  Although at first all were unanimous  in wishing to see a candidate put for-  "ward to represent them, when th~e~  convention came to the point of nom-������������������  Inations there was so much dissension  that a deadlock resulted. The following names were put before the meeting: L. W. Makovski, Armstrong, Col.  C. E. Edgett, A. T. Howe, Brig.-Gener-  al A. R. Harmon, Vernon; T. J.  Guinan, Princeton, and R. A. Copeland, Lumby.  As a result of the discussion all the  nominees withdrew their names with  the exception of General Harmon,  who was not present. Col.

Nichol, appointed by lhe Cily  Council to inquire into lhe proposed- park site on  the river, submit led in connection with the proposal lo erect a skaling rink building lhal could  as well be utilized in. connection witb summer  ancl fall fairs, etc.. was made to thc council al a  special meeting held Tuesday evening, and, acting on this reporl, the city will proceed to get  from Mr. Poison nearly ten acres of park land in  exchange forocity lots 'tnkon over by the city at tho  tax sale a vear atro or more. This exchange, wc  understand, will be made on tbe assessed value  of lhc properties involved. It will enable the city  lo acquire an ideal aulo and recreation park site  al no cost in money, and will put jnlo lhe bands  of Mr. Poison cily lots which can be used by him  in (he general development of Ibe lown. Tbe  deal should bc most satisfactory to both ihc city  and Mr. Poison.    And. from Ibe viewpoint of the  iilic inleresl, it should prove morc than salis-  pul  factory. It seems to us  gel the proper location  winler recreation, fall 1  and   communitv   picnic  to be the one chance to  for bolh summer and  irs. aulo nark, family  park,   balhing   houses,  boating, etc.-. The location is very close in, when,  ils many advantages are considered, and the securing of it by the cily. provides a way by which  our river asset can bc made of commJunity and  districl benefit. .   -  As'far a-, the cilv and Mr.Polson are concerned  and Mr.\Va!ker5who olVers a free site, for the rink  building il is proposed lo erect in connection  witb lhe proposed park site, there has been nothing lel'l undone, nor will there be any ennse for  delay in commencing work on lhc building on  Ihis'score.' Our business people, loo, have come  up lo Ihe scratch willingly and I'rcelv. Bul ,we  regret to sav. that Ihc generous, sacrificing work  market. And the towta,-' too, that exists as the  market centre for the farming community, will  have to co-operate with the farming community  or quit. This" thing of expecting" to do business  for and with farmers without co-operating with  them in the disposal of their produce or in pro^  viding the facilities for them, lo get the most oul  of lhcir produce will not last. Il must come lo  an end.  Here is the opportunity:. In gelling behind the  Enderby Growers Association, as it is now managed by Mr. C. Reeves, you not only will bc putting your money into a going concern that is  paying dividends, but you are lending your support to an enterprise lhat is doing more lo bring  lhis section of the Okanagan inlo ils own than  any other enterprise wc havc.  Shipments this season from Enderby, of grain,  hay and fruil, have been thc largest in many  years, particularly of apples, and all these havc  gone through Ihe Enderby Growers, al good  prices. It is the most encouraging season thc  fruit men havc had. Every producer, and every  citizen, is directly or indirectly interested in the  fuller development of Enderby's shipping organization. If businessmen1 and all were lo coooper-  alc with il in enlarging its scope J'or thc handling  bf produce, it Would make lhc .marketing facilities for produce much better, and then there  could be no reason for the cry "no market." And  with tliis excuse removed, perhaps then we  should sec morc production.  Resumption^of Work on C.N.R.  "II is rather nnfor-  Ihe resumption of  Mi  nx'  discouraging.  Smedley and  Mr.  Hartry  And1  il   is   safe to  :l week's ca ii-  ii ex I Aveek of  rink will nol bc  <>l   canvassing  has becn mosl  assume lhal. if lhc icsults of lhe" nt*  vassing are indicative of what Ihc  canvassina will bring forth, tht  creeled this winter.  II should be understood by eacb  citizen,  lhal  Ihis matter of rink and  a  combined  rccrcalv'on  park on lhe river, concerns him as much as anyone else.   You canT "lei George do it."   Each has  lo acl. and lo acep! his share of the load and the  responsibility.     Il  must  bc   made  a  community  affair in carrying the load as well as in enjoyin.'f  Ihe pleasure.    And unless wc arc each prepared  lo neeopi i! in lhis spiril, if cannol be marie a success.    A glance over the li?f of conlribulors Will  miickly   indicate  wbo   is   interesting   himself   in I  Ihe project and who is not.  Work on the. C.N.R. from Kamloops to Kelowna has'not been resumed yet, bul a rcnort is current that work is to begin again. This induces  our tried and Irlic fellow worker. Br'cr Rose, of  fhe Kelowna Courier, to sayr  lunate lhal announcement of  work on llie C.N.R. branch should coincide with  the impending general"election. There has bcen  a feeling currcnl in lhc dislrict lhal lhc C. N. R.  project was being made a political "calspaw, and  llJiis suspicion will bc deepened by thc peculiar  season selected lo resume lhc work. Had it been  undertaken���������������������������or rather, carried, on without intermission���������������������������when Boards of Trade, and olher public  bodies were pressing for completion of lhc line  if. would havc been".laken for. granted that the  government was yielding lo a popular demand  for a necessary addition to lhc present channels'  r>f- Irnnsporlnlion, without seeking to gain any  political prestige.thereby; but. 'coining at. Ibis  lime, it will bc dil.icull lo convince many of the  eleclo'ralc lhal il is anything oilier-lhan a bait  dangled before lhcir noses to induce them to vole  'riifht.' Thc history of British Columbia bristles  wilh similar ins lances of political trickery, and  Uv faiHi of the people has been badly shaken.  "To give Mr. MacKelvie bis due. he fought toolh  end nail for completion of Ihc C.N.R. during, hi������������������  attendance at the last session of parliament, and  any resentment that may now be manifest has  not been earned by him but by the governmcnl.  hc supports."   .

Much misconception has existed  concerning the terms "catch-crop,"  "qlover-crop," and "green-manure  crop." A, catch-crop is one that is  grown between the periods of other  crops, such as cabbage following early potatoes, as is often seen among  the Chinese gardens of Britih Columbia. A- cover-crop is a crop grown to  prevent injury and losses to soils,  such as might arise from erosion or  leaching. It may help to collect  snow under prairie conditions, and  prevent rapid freezing or thawing in  some locations. Incidentally the cover crop may afford protection to the  trees or plants growing on the area.  Greeir manure crops are those grown  for the purpose of enriching fche land,  and as such should have a larger  place in modern agriculture.  In British Columbia, stable manure  is very scare, and usually cannot be  purchased at any price, while chemical-fertilizers are too high in price to  permit of their extensive use. Green  manure is the "logical solution, at least  in part, pf the problem.  Any crop may be used as a green  manure, but all plants have not equal  value for the purpose, as some are "nitrogen gatherers"- while others are  "nitrogen consumers." The legumes,  so far as we know; are the only plants  which, have the power of taking nitrogen from the air as. well as from the  soil. The term legume is applied to  the clovers, vetches, peas, etc." and to  other plants which produce seeds in  pods. -A' legume, when plowed down  for manure, give back to the (soil not  only Uie plant food-taken up by the  growing plant, from ,the soil, but considerable quantities ._. of nitrogen  obtained, from  the air.-  How the legumes are able to accomplish this" work ihas bee"n the subject  of much study;., Gradually^the truth  was learned. Minute soil organising  live in. nodules pn, the roots of the  legumes, fn return' for their house  rent they under take to board their  host, or at least to furnish a part of  the ration. If these bacteria are not  present in. the soil the clovers, etc.,  are thrown on their own resources  and must search for what food there  is in the soil, as other plants are obliged to do. If a soil is lacking in this  way science has shown, how they  may be supplied for a few cents���������������������������  simply by obtaining "the proper culture and inoculating the soil.  -- In addition to the legumes,' buckwheat,-rape, turnips and many other  crops have been used as green manures. They have value, for the growing crops take up nitrogen which  otherwise might have been lost in the  drainage water. They also add humus to the soil^ hut it must not be lost  sight of that plant food returned  through their decomposition was first  _contained._inJ;he..isoil,_and,.thaUthe=re-_  turn of .the' crop to- mother earth is  no gift.  Nitrogen of soda is-one of the most  valuable of our fertilizers. It is possible for a leguminous crop, employed  as a green manure, to return to the  soil as much nitrogen per acre as is  contained in 500 pounds of nitrate of  soda. What is that worth to you?  It costs from 3 to 5 cents per pound,  depending upon locality, and is equal  to fche nitrogen usually contained in  ton of mixed fertilizer. ��������������������������� E. M-  Straight, Supt.

Being somewhat unsteady on hl3 limbs," the man grasped  hold of what he supposed was a  picket fence ar.d started to feel his  way along. After rotating around  the tree for half an hour he appeared  somewhat puzzled at the extraordinary length of the fence, but he kept  bravely on for some time.

Jt is the time to place the destinies of Canada again  in the hands of a Government led by a sane, courageous Canadian who has safely brought the country  through the trying years of reconstruction, and upon  whom, we can rely to retain and initiate policies in  the interest, not of a group or class but of all the  people.

Ah, tired "one, ofttimes thy feet will  falter and grow weary ere they reach  the prime of manhood; and to thee  will come hours when not as now the'  innocenttsleep of childhood will bring  thee rest.  Often from 'other lips than childish  ones has escaped a sigh,  the burden " ,  of which has been, "So tired!"   Eagerly   we   toiled   for an   independence  which some day ln the far-off future  is to bring us rest; but as night aftei  night we laid our weary heads upon  our pillows, we' are still .looking forward,   still ' unsatisfied;   and   thus   it  will  ever be with us till  the  Master _  calls.      Sometimes   ambition   is    the ���������������������������-.  guiding"star   spurring   us   onward to   ���������������������������  the temple of fame.    But the path is -  a  thorny  one;   the  footsteps   falter;  the brain grows dizzy, and from the  heart goes forth the cry, "So tired!  -Yet temptingly a siren voice whispers  of glory  and  of  rest  and   again  the  feet press   forward,   till   the .goal is ~  reached.

'Tis thus we are all  weary.    And yet," we would not fold  our  hands   ln  idleness,  because perchance,    we    may,, sometimes    grow  "faint  with  the  burden  and  heat  of  the  day."    To  us  has  been  given  a  glorious "privilege to press forward In  the battle of life,' and  if our chosen .  path be that of truth  and  right the.'  assurance  of well-being - will  be our ������������������������������������������������������  sweet   reward _when,   by-and-by,   we  shall  partakej- of that  joy  and peace  of which tlie_ blessed-never tire.���������������������������Exf- ,  The Tired Tiger  "Have.I told anyone I wished to;reenter politics?'! replied Ciemericeau,  the Tiger, to a recent inquiry.

Crerar, leader' of the  National Progressive Party, on Monday made "public an address "To the  People of Canada," dealing with the  issues of .the-present general election  campaign.  "The tariff is an issue, a very important issue," says Mr. Crerar, "but  the supreme issue today is whether  our government is to be free or fettered, and whether legislation in the  future shall be for the1 few or the  many."  Tbe address concludes with this  brief statement of the position of the  National   Progressive   party:  "What, then, _are our proposals?  Our goal is tho ultimate elimination  of the principle of protection in our  fiscal policy. But wo recognize that  changes must be brought about in a  manner that will give a fair opportunity to Canadian industries now  enjoying protection to ��������������������������� adjust themselves to them. To the end that our  agricultural resources may be developed in the fullest degree possible,  jve propose removing the duty from  agricultural implements; ancl also  from much of mining ancl sawmill  machinery for the encouragement of  these industries. To lessen the cost  of living, a substantial reduction In  the general tariff should be made,and  especially upon those things that  come witihih the category of the necessities of life. Essential" fpods we  shall also placecon the free list; ancl  I would invite the attention of the  Canadian peoplo to = this, when our  opponents, by misrepresentation, accuse tho farmers of Canada with  seeking only selfish legislation. We  believe that in this way the wealth  of Canada can best be developed, the  area of prosperity can best be cn-  enlarged ancl the general happiness of  all the people best promoted.  "But our opponents say: 'If you do  this, where will you get the revenue  to run the country?' Let- us look at  this tiling squarely. A. tariff that is  put on goods for protective purposes  is not intended primarily to produce  revenue. In othcr words, the tariff  can   be   framed   for  revenue  and   not  for protection, and thus by wise adjustments and modifications^ it can.  still be used to produce aTery substantial revenue. In the main, however, as far as our revenues are concerned, we must rely on direct- taxation; and * the . tax������������������s imposed must  be levied in accordance with sound  principles of taxation. Taxes must be  levied on the basis of ability to pay.  Under the indirect method of raising  revenue, through customs tariff, the  man least able to pay very often pays  tihe most."  Hullcar Literary Social  "Whether you are members of our  little band or not we extend to j-ou a  hearty welcome, and ask your co-operation to make our meetings a success"  said a Hullcar citizen to the Commoner. "If you caniioL help in the entertaining wc shall appreciate your suggestions as to any subjects for future  discussion." This thought was also  expressed by the preident of the-Liter-  ary Society at tho opening , meeting  held last Friday evening' at the hall,  when a large gathering assembled, to  enjoy Dr. MeKechnic's talk on "Greece  and Egypt." A good musical program  was also given and the president  voiced their appreciation of the Doctor's very interesting account of his  travels and stay in Salonica and the  countries round ahout, and the great  change that has come since Turkish  rule had given place, to more enlightened government.  Miss Jean Lindsay, Mrs. Colin Harris, the Misses Pyott- and Howard all  sang, Miss Jean Pyott recited and  Miss Ruth Hilliard gave a piano solo  which was executed with ='much 'expression. Mrs. Kenny was the accompanist. If- the first meeting of  tho season is any criterion, we think  a very happy time is in-store for the  coming winter.
