Mayor for the  city.  The proposal submitted by Mr.  Walker was then taken up. It was  explained that roughly 100x200 feet  of the Walker acreage had already  been accepted as a rink site, which  would leave an acre and a quarter or  thereabouts tQ go to the city. Deducting say $235 as a fair sum to  allow for the ground given for rink  site, the assessed value of the remainder of the acreage would be $600,  and for this Mr. Walker would accept  in exchange two acres adjoining the  Gibb's property in the Moffet acreage,  assessed at $300 an acre.  Without delay this exchange was  agreed to and papers were drawn up  and signed covering the transfer until  a survey is made and deeds accepted.

MAIL CAR BURNED  A mail car on the train that left  Sicamous for Vernon last Thursday  morning burned at Mara shortly before noon. It carried mail for the Okanagan which had been accumulating  for the week previous.  According to the story of mail  clerks in the car, the fire started in a  compartment where the mail bags are  carried.  The ' clerks, it is claimed, were  working,in the sorting section of the  car and the flames were not discovered until Mara was reached. Every  effort to get out the bags was unsuccessful. The only mail saved was  that for Mara and Enderby, these  mail sacks lying close to the ma"l car  door ready to be thrown off.  It is believed the fire started from  the* mail sacks being piled too close  to the stove.  Thursday, November 10th, 1921.

Man,  Said to be  Interested  Here  A leport in the Vancouver Province  states that several thousand acres of  land in the oil area between Enderby  and Armtrong were last week given  over under lease to Paul Briandt, discoverer of one.of California's famous  oil fields. This section has strong indications of rich oil deposits and it  has long attracted the attention of  men . having had experience ln oil  drilling. '      .  It is understood that the company  proposing to operate here is intending  to drive three test wells, one to go  down1 within two miles' of Enderby, a  second at what is known as Round  Prairie, two. miles west of������������������ Armsrong,  and a third in the vicinity of Vernon.

Voters' List for Dominion Election  "Is vour name on thc Voters' List? . If you did  not vote at the last Provincial election it was  struck ofT. Saturday, Nov. Sth, is the last day  for registering."  'a Warnings such as the'above have becn sounded  bv newspapers big ancl little for the past month  or more, and thcrc was great scurrying last vjeek  on tbe part of those desiring to get on thc list.  Muck confusion ancl misunderstanding attended  tliis scurrying, ancl when Saturday, the 5th, was  passed many" thought thcy were out of it and  cave un hope of voting in the Dominion election.  Much of this confusion was thc result of confounding the regulations of the Provincial Elections Act with those applying to the Dominion  Election, and also from confusing the regulations  applying to urban divisions with those applying  to rural "divisions. As a matter of fact, the last  dav for registering in urban divisions was Nov.  olh. but in rural divisions such as Enderby,  Armstrong ancl Salmon Arm, the time for registering remains open until Nov. 26th. Up to Nov.  21st/the local registrars, Mr. Smedley for Enderby, Mr. Monk for Grindrod, ancl Mr. Butterworth  i'or Mara, will prepare preliminary lists of thc  names of all whom thcy know to ho bona  fide voters. On the 21st this preliminary list >vill  bc posted so anyone may read, and it shall remain so posted for a" period of five days, or until  tlie 2Glh. subject .to correction cither by adding  othcr ,names or striking off names that should  not be" there. Tbe list will bc finally certified on  the 26th"of November.  ' If persons arc registered in anolher electoral  district than thc one in���������������������������which they have resided  for Uie two months prior lo October Sth, nnd fulfill all the qualifications of the Act, thcy can  'registervfor lhe electoral district in which they  now reside, if a person is registered in a polling  division in any particular riding or electoral district, hc or she will bc expected to. vote in that  polling division. _ ��������������������������� ���������������������������.'���������������������������;������������������������������������������������������-���������������������������  i cry ^ip. o ���������������������������  Bible Reading in Public Schools     Q  Wc did not know until a few. days ago that no  time i.s given in our public schools to Bible reading. Strange? Did you? It did not use to bc so.  Nor should it be so now. If, as a Christian people, we believe in the .efficacy of prayer and the  development of thc religious instinct native in  every child, wc cannot logically do without Bible  reading in our schools. Not necessarily as doctrinal 'teaching, but for the reason that thc Old  -Bnnk.-Msidfi- fro m. -fin v. -doc! final ism to��������������������������� one, of.  open mind, contains thc best moral and ethical  teaching lo be found anywhere, and as a piece of  literature and a history of Hie scarchings of the  ancients for the Way to higher and better things,  the boy and girlggnopcTahhcismweatheinqppcn  it has no equal. Too much secularism in public  school teaching is not good for either scholar or  teacher, and a little lime each day devoted to  Bible sliidy would build a-broader character and  a sounder citizenship���������������������������provided it ��������������������������� were not  applied a.s doctrinal leaching.  Provincial Highway Finally Settled  Hon. J. II. 'King; minister of'public works, definitely announced tlie government's acceptance  of lhc. old Dewdney Trail, route for the last link  in the transprovincial highway. Tliis link is 70  miles long and extends from Hope to Princeton.  For'25 .'miles out of Hope the route follows the  old Sapper road. The Coquaballa river is followed for some distance and the route branches  off, following the SumallovV river. Tlie Skagit  river is ��������������������������� touched .and followed a short distance.  When the road strikes Allison Pass at an altitude  of 5,800 feel. Whipsaw creek is followed until the  trail strikes the old Cleveland survey," south of  Princeton.  The estimated cost of the road is approximately $500,000. There will be 42 miles of new  construction required, 20 milas of reconstruction, wliile eight miles of the Cleveland survey  will be utilized. Minister King claims that no  great dilliculties will be met in construction. It  is the intention to start work on thc road as earl}*  as possible in the Spring in the hope of building  25 miles of the road next year. It is estimated it  will take two seasons to complete the work.  In Business in the Community, but Not Part of It  Perhaps our Canadian banldng system is the  ideal thing; perhaps there is nothing better. And,  yet, no system was ever evolved by mortal man  that could not be improved upon. There is much  roomc in our Canadian banking policy for improvement, and slowly we Canadians are waking  up to "tliis fact. For instance, under the Canadian  Banking Act the few established banks in the  Dominion may reach out in all directions and  set up branch banks wherever it will pay them.  By tliis endless chain of banks, the half dozen  banking heads in the Dominion have a monopoly on the-- banking business. These branch  banks do business in the community in *\yhich  they are set up���������������������������at a profit���������������������������yet they do not become part of thc community in the sense that  other businessmen are part of it, and arc not prepared to bear their share of the load that all men  in business must shoulder in supporting and  building up public utilities.  Ask any of our banks to subscribe to a fund fof  the purpose of building an agricultural hall, rink,  or anything, of that nature, and you will bc told  how difficult it would be for the bank to do so;  that if thc banks did it for one town they undoubtedly would be asked to do it for others;  therefore, to be lair to all they gi\e to none- In  other words, they are prepared to share in the  good that may come to the community through  the efforts of* others, but will not contribute to,  the effort or anything in the way of effort.  Is tliis policy fair? Branch banks are established and maintained in a community as a business proposition. They are conducted at a profit  to lhc shareholders, therefore they are as much a  part of the business of the community as any  other business institution. Undoubtedly, if the  bank should give to a public purpose fund in onc  community it would be asked to contribute by  another community in which*it was established.  Is thcrc any reason why it shouldn't? Branch  banks are established to make money for thc  parent institution. Whether the parent bank has  a branch in cue hundred or one thousand cilics,  the principle is lhc same. Each branch must be  taken as an institution of the town, doing business at a profit, and therefore as much a part of  the community as the butcher, the grocer, the  dry goods merchant or any othcr business. But  under our banking policy our banks assume no  sucli a position? They clo business���������������������������at a profit���������������������������  in the community, but assume few if any of the  responsibilities of citizenship in the community.  We believe if we would go .deep enough into  this problem it would be found that this feature  of our banking policy has done morc to retard  progress in Canada than any other..!  The Real Obstacle in the Way of pasting Peace  One danger to a final and. satisfactory agreement at the" Washington conference which opens  this week, lies in the present conflict of British  and United States interests on the oil question,  says an editorial in the London Times. "It may  fairly bc advanced," says thc writer," that if Great  Brilain is not prepared to make concessions on  this vital question the conference is likely to.  break do**\*\Jn." ~    -   -  The writer advocates abandonment by the  British Government "of their present policy ^ of  participation in oil production and supply," and  adds that if thc Brilish Government renounces its  control of the Anglo-Persian Oil Company and  produces evidence of its complete dissociation  from active participation in the .oil industry i.t  can justly demand, whether in California or the  P! i il ippinesr^con tinuaiicc^of^thc-^Unitecl^States  "old and sound policy of thc open door." It is  the only policy that will make for world peace.

It affords peculiar gratifiction that such  a massage, from the chief executive of the United  States of America, may be received in every land,  from every sky, by peoples with whom our nation is at peace and unity. ...That this happy situation may ever continue and that the peace which  blesses our own land may presently become the  fortune* of all lands and peoples, is the earnest  hope of the American nation."  Premier Meighcn's Thanksgiving, message to  the people of Canada was brief, but full of meat  for thought: "Thanksgiving Day has now been  fixed so that it falls in-the week in which the anniversary of the armistice occurs. Tliis gives us  an opportunity to acknowledge our manifold  blessings ancl will recall the cessation of the great  struggle and our duty to those who strove to obtain the blessing of peace. To the conference at  Washington our minds at this time will turn with  thankfulness that the nations are to meet in a  spirit of concord to seek the removal of causes  ancl means of dispute and conflict."

Grant In his book on "Words  and Their Uses," says: A rooster ls  an animal that roosts. Almost all  birds are roosters, then hens, of  course, as well as the cocks. What  sense or delicacy, the, is there in  calling the cock of the domestic fowl  a rooster, as many people do? The  cock is no more rooster than the hen;  and domestic fowls are no more roosters than canary birds or peacocks.  Out of this nonsense, however, people  must be laughed rather than reasoned.  In virtue of a higher law and duty,  and of the principles above the level  of human passions, the helping hand  of the Red Cross was stretched forth  to all victims throughout the ordeal  of the Great War.  Today, the Red Cross owes it to  itself and to all its many workers to  proclaim as an ideal and a practical  intention, a struggle against the  horrors of war, an atempt by worldwide help and unselfishness definitely  to abolish war.  The mere continuation of Red Cross  activity In time of peace will no longer  suffice. It is the wish of the Red  Cross to work in the interest of peace.  Therefore, the Red Cross calls upon  all whole-hearted citizens, Irrespective  of nationality, religious belief, profession, or social rank, to join, as far as  lies In their power In a systematic  campaign against that spirit of war,  which is a constant menace to the  world's peace.  During five "years, millions of men  were killed or * mutilated. Today,  thousands of ex-soldiers or prisoners  at last set free bear indelible marks  of bodily and mental suffering. .All  of them believed that the generations  to come would reap" the fruits of the  great ordeal in a new international  life, which would.be more brotherly,  franker and more full.  Instead, disorder and uncertainty,  distrust and greed, hatred and the  threat of fresh quarrels are re-appearing throughout the world. The  spirit of war, unconquered, reigns supreme. Its sinister influence is evident. It inspires lines;of policy and  press" campaigns, which' lead public  opinion astray., and embitters the economic competition among" nations. -  During the terrible years.of the recent war, superhuman efforts were required' of- the "different nations. In  order; to inspire such' sacrifices, a  supreme reward was promised���������������������������namely,' the annihilation of this same spirit  of war, which is a peril as old as the  I world and a constant menace tb mankind.  Thus generations yet unborn- would  have been delivered from thescourage  at the price of the suffering which  the war entailed. This-hope sustained nations and armies.  Have they hoped in vain?  Have millions of "human lives and  the wealth of nations been sacrificed  In vain?  Faced with . these questions, the  Red Cross recognized a duty.  At the suggestion of Senator Cirao-  lo. Chairman of the Jtalian Red Cross",  the tenth International Red Cross Conference, which met at Geneva on  April 1st, 1921, voted the following  resolution:  "The International Committee of the  Red Cross and the League of Red  Cross Societies shall address an ap-  peal__to-all-=nations,^exhorting^them^to-  combat the spirit of war, which dominates the world."  These two organizations call therefore on nations and individuals to  fight with all means In their power  this maleficent spirit. May. statesmen, writers, school and university,  capital and labor remember that it is  their duty, in the interest of mankind,  to help peace to conquer the earth.  Above all, children should be brought  up In this fundamental belief.  It is essential that the human mind  should once more be open to the  broad lines of an internationalism,  which, while allowing the citizen to  love his town and the 'patriot his  country, 'teaches all men to respect  the existence and the rights of their  fellows, by bringing into the daily  life the individual light of a justice,  wliich is to be in all the world for  all the time.  This true inteinationalism cannot  be attained without the active and intimate co-operation of governments,  parliaments, voluntary organizations,  the press, the clergy, and above all,  National Red-. Cross Societies. To  the union of these forces must be added a supreme factor: the. power of  individual conviction. JEvery man, as  far as lies in his power, must contribute to make peace permanent in the  world.  The individual must no longer sej  the world in the light of his own sel-j  anada  , ���������������������������*I ask from all the people of Canada an earnest review of the rest istue before Canada today.

WOMEN OF CANADA, the .coming General Election. will be one of the-most  momentous in Canadian history, and Arthur Meighen asks YOU to give. the issue  fair, unbiassed consideration.  Women and men alike are called upon to decide whether political; industrial and  economic stability is to be replaced by class rule, political and industrial chaos and  possible economic bankruptcy.  The facts are clear, and every Canadian woman will do her own thinking. 'She will  not be misled by others.    She will not blindly follow family political precedent, neither =  will she be carried away by the false theories or empty "isms" of theorists and extremists.   Every woman will  arrive at a personal  decision  by the application of  ' practical common sense.' " v  The great issue is the Tariff and here are briefly the faets.  The present Canadian Tariff, so far as it affects the necessaries of life, is a very  moderate one.    It is simply a tariff maintained to keep Canadian factories in Canada,  . employing a steadily increasing volume of Canadian labor and developing Canadian.  resources. .       r ���������������������������    <,  . Meighen stands firm for the continuance of a reasonable tariff.   It is now even more  imperative than in the past.    All other important countries are retaining or increasing  _ their tariffs in order that they may hold their home markets, for their own people.  o ' *' ' - -  Under Crerar'a Free Trade policy Canada would be swamped with foreign goods,  principally from the United States, Canadian industry would be ruined, .thousands  of men and women would be put of work with all the hardships to themselves and  their children that must result? The farmer's great home market would be seriously-  affected, taxes would be increased, and Canadian working men would have to go to  the United States for employment.      ' . ' -  - While King's Tariff policy is wobbly it nevertheless tends toward the destruction of  the Tariff and would bring with it practically the same results." .        "  MEIGHEN'S POLICY EVERYBODY KNOWS. - It is the only means whereby  confidence may be maintained and employment given to all classes .of the people.  The foregoing is a plain statement' of logical conclusions arrived at from the facts.'

More Fresh Air  Apropos of the matter of fresh air,  the following excellent article appeared in the Ladies' Home Journal  for September. It is the sanest bit  of criticism wo have seen along this  line:  "The pastor of a western church  recently conceived the sensible idea  that there was one way by which he  might at least encourage attendance  in his church: by giving the people  fresh, pure air to breathe. Of course  the sexton assured him "he did all  he could to air the church out before  service:" he recited the sexton's  usual woes: what pleased one parson  didn't please another, and so forth.  "But," said the. pastor, /'all the same,  the air during service is awful: fresh  air I will have and fresh air I am  going to have if I have to take the  ventilation of the church into~my own  hands." He called his people and his  trustees together, explained the efficiency of fresh air, and asked for their  help to see that the air in the church  was pure and fresh. What that pastor did was to awaken the attention  of his entire congregation to a subject  to  which  his  people had  given  little  or no thought; he got not-only better  air into his church, but, moreover, he  set his people thinking about the  benefits of fresh air in their, homes,  and the reports of four "physicians  show a marked decline^ in colds and  illnesses among the members of that  parish! Now, that is practical religion: the kind of religion we need  in scores of our churches today which  fairiy ~ "reek with poisoned and  breathed-over air, the result of poor  ventilation: a religion of fresh air.  A little more common-sense of this  sort on the part of the pulpit, and the  church will have taken one step forward, making of Itself an institution  of practical good with an appeal to  men."  ������������������������������������������������������    ' V.  -   ; -&���������������������������-���������������������������  Things to Forget  If you would increase your happiness and prolong your life, forget  your neighbor's faults.

The following table, is taken from Circular 39 of the Missouri Experimental  Station:  Silage at a depth of five feet weighs  33.4 pounds per cubic foot; at ten feet  it weighs 35 pounds per cubic foot;  at 15 feet, 36.4 pounds; 20 feet, 37.5  pounds; 25 feet, 3S.3 pounds; 30 feet,  39 pounds; and at 40 and 50 feet the  silage averages 40.3 and 41.4 pounds  respectively.  To find the capacity of the silo:  Multiply one-half of thc inside diameter by itself, then by 3.141G, and then  by the depth of the settled silage.  This gives tlie volume. Multiply this  by the weight of silage at that depth.  This will give the capacity in pounds.  Divide by 2,000.to get the weight in  tons.  Why  Farmers are  In  Politics  City people are prone to explain  the farmers' entrance into politics as  a freak movement, and the farmers  are classed with bolshevists and radicals. There is a general feeling that  the tillers of the soil may commence  to   throw   bombs   any  minute.     o '  Nohting could be farther from the  truth. The fact is that farmers, as  a class, are the biggest businessmen  in the country. Farming is the biggest business���������������������������the greatest industry,  farmers see lawyers, merchants, builders ancl all' ether classes represented  in parliament, and are commencing  up in a fight, "J Ito feel that they should be-adequately  :Vnd  turn all our days into-sorrowing represented,  too..
