PIPS ON THE CARDS OF LIFE BY A PIOUS PIPPIN  /   TTlNDERBY was more than usually hon-  H i ored this week.     First,  there came  m^"^ into camp one Peck McSwain, riding  on a tie-pass, twelve hours from Vernon.  Few people hereabouts know Peck McSwain. He may not know himself���������������������������I do  not know. He is a printer that loves  Bacchus not wisely, but too well. Bacchus  reciprocates, not well nor wisely, but dod-  gastedly to the limit, and, as a result, when  Peck McSwain wants to see his friends, he  prefers to put on his old clothes and walk,  rather than be mistaken for a corporation  lawyer or a tabernacle parson and ride on  an unearned Pullman pass. He came to  Enderby after attending the Liberal convention at Vernon, and showed signs of  being badly treated by the convention, or  treated too often and too well. Going to  the convention, he lost the only pair of  pants he had with him on the boat, and  he would have walked into the convention  hall illumined in a smile and his shirt tied  down with a shoestring but for the fact  that his coat would not have looked well  on a scare-crow in the fence corner.  Peck McSwain is a sincere believer in..  Eractical inceneration, and the first thing  e did on reaching the sanctum sanctorum  of the Walker Press, was to consign to the  crematory what the Liberal convention had  left him. Mister McSwain is a character.  There are few like him, and they are dead.  Life is a huge joke to him,and the people in  it all jokers���������������������������except the brakey on the fast  freight.  The second person to honor Enderby with  his presence this week was Col. R. T.  Lowery. Colonel Lowery was en route to  Vernon to attend the Conservative convention there. No man in Canada has done  more to put genuine humor into journalism  than R. ;T. Lowery. He is the only humorist worthy of the name doing newspaper  work in Canada. It is true that the postal authorities have twice put Lowery out  of business, but when the good postal au  thorities that did the work are dead and  forgotten, the name of R. T. Lowery will  be printed big in the hearts of the people  who know him and his work.  Here is a sample of Lowery's work���������������������������not  his best, but something to show his style.  I know there are a number of good people  who read Pips that will ask,' 'can anything  good come out of Nazareth," but read and  see:  "As a rule, the biggest toad cannot jump  the farthest.  ' 'The ghosts of our imagination often  chase us to the devil.  "Mustard is good for the memory, but  many of our subscribers never use it.  ' 'If selfishness and the actions of narrow  minds could be eliminated from the church,  it would be the grandest institution on  earth.  "When times are hard do not forget to  pay the printer and spend all the money  you can. It is the spending of money that  makes times good.  "One Greenwood saloon has cut out the  water.   If its patrons should cut out the  j&hiskeyJhei^^^  but a tap and be harmless.  "Dunsmuir thinks that the prosperity of  this province is marred by a lack of cheap  labor. Perhaps his idea is to have this fair  land owned by absentee millionaires and  peopled by slaves. Merr of Bunsmuir's  mentality usually think this way, especially  when they are only a generation or two  removed from the shirt-sleeve period in  their own families.  "Twelve years ago tonight we lost $300.  It was at New Denver, and the hotel  burned down, causing us to jump from a  window to the glass-strewn terra firma,  leaving our clothes and our diamonds to be  cremated. As the landlord did not charge  us for the room that night, and we have  never had a shave since, we have by this  time recovered from the financial shock of  that period." 9.  WALKER'S WEEKLY,  zxxz  XX  x>������������������c  THE NEWS IN AND ABOUT ENDERBY DISTRICT  zxx.  TZX^X  E>CE  Upwards of $400 has been raised for  the celebration of May 24th.  The Mayor and Councilmen will attend  divine services in St. George's church, as an  cSfecial body, on Sunday, May 3rd, at 7:30  p. m.  Rev. Mr. Campbell has been unable to  carry on his work for the past two weeks  owing to a slight attack of nervous prostration.  Jas. McMahon has purchased the blacksmith business of J. H. McVeigh, and is  prepared to do general blacksmithing and  wood work.  A meeting of the Directors of the Enderby Fruit & Produce Association will be held  Saturday afternoon at the Farmers Exchange building.  Robert Cummings is acting Provincial  Constable, in the absence of Bassal Gar-  dom, who is at the bedside of his wife at  the Vernon hospital.������������������������������������������������������  Frank V. Moffet lately installed 35 lights  in the home of W. Allan Dobson. He reports that he is placing electric lights in  most of the Enderby homes.  John Coulthard, accountant at the Bank  of Montreal, left Tuesday evening for the  coast, where he will spend a few weeks  ruminating in the brambles of city life.  The Enderby  junior lacrosse club was  reorganized Saturday night. Watson Miller  was made captain,  and Ernest Evans secretary treasurer.     Tuesday ahd^THursday"  nights were made practice nights.  There will be a nickel social and conundrum supper in the basement of the Presbyterian church on May 1st. ^ There isn't  anything mysterious about this affair, the  ladies say. "You simply pay the nickels and  eat the conundrums.  A. E. Taylor and children returned from  the East Good Friday morning. Miss Howe,  grand daughter of the Hon. Joseph Howe,  mainly through whose efforts a responsible  government was won for Nova Scotia, accompanied them. Mr. Taylor and children  will occupy the bank residence.  Rev. F/V. Venables will visit Salmon  Arm on Sunday, the 26th, by request, in-  order to conduct the Easter services, as the  Church of England people of that place are  again without a resident vicar.   There will  therefore be no morning service in St.  George's church, on Sunday next. In the  evening there will be Evensong, at 7:30.  Robt. Waddell has cleared a large acreage on his splendid farm near Enderby, this  spring, and expects a bumper crop of oats  off the land this year. The Hazelmere ranch  is one of the finest out of doors, in this or  any other land, and should be worth $10,-  000 a year to the owner when properly  worked.  The band boys worked like Trojans  most of the day Good Friday in order to  get the bandstand ready for the evening  concert. It was gaily lighted by electric  lights when evening came and promptly  on time the first band concert was given.  The citizens turned out almost en mass  to show their appreciation.  Harry Ranger's launch, the "Dorothy"  was launched Good Friday morning. She  took to the water like a long-necked goose  and but for a mishap to the engine pump,  the performance would have passed off  splendidly. After an hour's work on the  pump, the boat got in motion, and her  maneuvers in the water were greeted with  cheers from the spectators.    ,  Rev. Mr. Hicks and his brother, a bass  soloist, prominent in the coast cities, entertained an appreciative audience in the  Methodist church Tuesday evening. Rev.  -Miv-Hiek-s-was-stat4oned���������������������������in4his^fieldTsome^  15 years ago. He saw the first building go  up at Armstrong, and was pastor when the  Methodist church was erected there. He  now is editor of the Methodist Recorder.  FRUIT & PRODUCE EXCHANGE OFB. C.  This letter speaks for itself:  Mr. George R, Lawes, Enderby. Dear Sir: At  a meeting of our Executive held this week it was  resolved that all payments be made by check and  that all checks should be signed by both the Secretary Manager and the Treasurer. It was also  decided that both the Secretary-Manager and the  treasurer should be placed under bonds of twenty  thousand dollars each.  It is evident that the Central Exchange will distribnte at  least nine-tenths of the fruit and produce of the Province  this season. With our officers under the very heaviest  bonds procurable, and payments made to producers every  fifteen days, I think we have now done everything possible  to inspire confidence and insure  our members against loss.  I trust that this action will meet with your entire approval. Very truly yours,  .JAS. "JOHNSTONE, President. ENDERBY, B.

Have they lived  so long in the enjoyment of this glorious  climate, and rested in the abundance of  the annual harvests that they have passed  out of the circle of activities, and into the  sump of indifference; or are appearances  deceiving, and is there really a burning desire to beautify the town and make it  as beautiful as Nature intended it should  be? Are we doing what we can to lift it  above the sordid and mean? or are we  tabooing the trees and plants and flowers,  and turning our streets and sidewalks over  to the itinerant cows and calves, bulls,  horses, colts, dogs, chickens and ducks?  Is it our ambition to make our streets and  homes beautiful .with shade trees and  foliage? Do we want to make Enderby  the admired of all, and attract hither the  home-lovers of Canada? Do we realize  4i0w^bea*H*ti���������������������������-ul^  Are we satisfied to let it remain less beautiful than what we know we should make  it? Are we, each one of us, willing to lend  a hand to make our part of town beautiful  and a joy to ^  they are, can hardly realize the. feeling of  disappointment that strikes into the heart  of one coming to Enderby from any section  where the people pride themselves on their  flowers, trees and foliage. Nothing is more  essential to the town's progress than clean  streets, beautified by shade trees and  flower gardens. Without these things Enderby promises little; with them, Enderby  is sure to excel, and to grow into the happiest homeland in Canada.  Mr. A. E. Taylor, of the Bank of Montreal, returned to Enderby this week after  spending six weeks in Eastern Canada.  Mr. Taylor is more pleased than ever with  the conditions in and about Enderby. He  says our weather conditions are six weeks  ahead of those of the east; We do not  realize what advantages are ours until we  measure them by contrast. The east is turning to the Okanagan, he says, and a tremendous influx of homeseekers may be  expected this summer and fall. He urges  Enderby to awakened to the possibilities that are her's; that we make the  most of our advantages. He is sure that  we have here a town and district of almost  unlimited natural advantages, and these  we should make the most of.  THUS far no real step has been taken  in the matter of exhibition building  and winter recreation grounds, suggested some weeks ago, though the matter  of organizing a company of public spirited  citizens to carry out the project has been  openly discussed and favorably received.  We believe enough money could be raised  right in Enderby to finance the proposition, and, once built and placed upon a  business footing, its success would be  assured. It is a matter that cannot be  too long delayed. It is something that  does not materialize in delays.  THE Armstrong Advertiser thinks the  Salmon Arm Observer "raps the  knuckles pretty hard" of the correspondent writing in Walker's Weekly rearing to the doings, or mis-doings of the  okl--Sal-mon���������������������������Arm���������������������������Excha-nge-managementr  Someone has said that "an empty head  and a big mouth are the qualifications  for professional criticism/' and this appears to be absolutely true with reference  to the Salmon Arm criticism.    The joke  formant this time. They directed their  whole charge of choice vituperation at the  head of Mr. Lawes of Enderby, who did not  write, and does not know who did write, the  words of commendation to Walker's Weekly  which caused such bitterness to flow. The  person who did write the letter referred to  does not live within 200 miles of Enderby.  Mr. Lawes'position in this controversy has  been one of candor and reason. The only  criticism he had to make of Salmon Arm  methods, was made over his own signature  and has not been answered. 4  WALKER'S WEEKLY,  The  ONE PRICE TO ALL  Our Cash Customers can buy as cheap as at a strictly cash store.

C, April 23, 1908  5  :r  01  l   5  \  !  CITY COUNCIL MEETING  r>d  A meeting of the City Council  was held Wednesday evening to  open the bids for the work of  ditching for a more thorough  drainage system. Seven tenders  were submitted, that of John  McKay being the lowest, and was  accepted.  The work calls for a ditch three  feet deep, 14 inches wide, and is  to be dug at 5c per running foot,  the work to be finished by the  15th of May. The construction  of the wooden drains will be done  by day labor.  The new drains will run 850  feet along George street, from  the corner of Mill to Hubert,  thence westerly along Hubert 240  feet; along Russell from George  to Sicamous, 600. feet; along  Cliff from George to Sicamous,  600 feet; along Mill from George  to High street, 876 feet; a total  3,166 running feet.  This system of drainage will  drain all the principle streets of  the city, as well as the property  fronting thereon, and will be a  much needed improvement.  ON TO FINDLA Y RIVER  Adventurous spirits   all   over  Canada, if not the western con-  ^tln^tTlTO^a^M^^^  to get to Findlay River, the new  placer fields of British Columbia.  Tne Saturday Sunset gives reliable information, obtained from  those who have made the journey. Iiazelton, at the head of  navigation on the Skeena river,  is the logical starting point for a  land trip with pack horses. From  Hazelton proceed nine miles east  to the Babine trail and then a  hike of 335 miles brings the prospector to Findlay river. Here is  the route and distances:  Hazelton to Babine lake, 60  miles; Babine lake to Tetla, over  the Manson creek or Omineca,  both being the same trail, 50 to  60 miles canoe on Tetla to Buck  ley House, 25 miles; Tetla lake  up Driftwood river to Bear lake,  90 miles; foot of Bear lake to  Fort Con ley, at head, 15 miles;  from head of Bear Lake to Ses-  tool lake at the head of Skeena  river, 90 miles; then about 30  miles to Findlay river. Anyone  who has had experience in the  hills, with the aid of ( a government map will from the foregoing be easily able to trace the  lines of travel.  For the benefit of those who  may be contemplating the trip,  tne following list of supplies is  given by experienced men who  have made the trip, the list covering supplies necessary for one  man for a year. No one should  attempt the trip with less if he  expects to remain long enough to  accomplish any work. Following  is a list with weights: Flour,  350 lbs.; bacon, 150 lbs.; sugar,  100 lbs.; beans, 100 lbs,; evaporated vegetables, 50 lbs.; evaporated fruit, 75 lbs.; rice, 50 lbs.;  oatmeal, 50 lbs., condensed milk,  50 lbs.; clothing, tents, blankets,  etc., 100 lbs.; tools, 50 lbs.; tea,  coffee and miscellaneous, say 75  lbs; total per man, 1,200 lbs. Of  this weight it will be seen that  all but 150 lbs. is grub. The  average cost per pound for the  latter will be about 15c. A horse  will be required for at least each  300 lbs. of load.  Gavin Hamilton, a Hudson-  Bay man who has spent 25 years  in the Findlay river district,  strongly favors the Fraser river  water route. "I have spent 25  years and over in this self-same  district, and travelled pretty well  all over it from Hazelton to Babine, and to Bear's Lake." says  he. "I have also gone several  times by the water route via  Ash croft, and I maintain that  there is no route equal or fit to  be compared as,, via Quesnel, up  the. Fraser, across Giscome Portage, seven miles, where no doubt  a tramway will be constructed,  as it was during the Omineca excitement; thence down stream in  Crooked river to McLeod lake,  , thence down Puck river and Parsnip to the Findlay, up which  five days ought to land you at  Fort Grahame. Not a rapid from  Giscombe to Ingenica river."

Its officers have proceeded systematically to work  to put the organization on a safe, permanent footing. No labor has been spared to systematize the handling of the business, and no personal sacrifice of time and convenience  has been too great for President Lawes and Secretary Strickland to make in order to bring-  about the -amicable adjustment of the affairs of the Association. For the present, Mr.  Strickland is handling all the produce shipped by the Association, and will continue so to  do until the shipments become too heavy for the Secretary to handle.

The minute the band stops,  enter into animated conversation  with your neighbor as to his  whereabouts and physical condition on the previous evening, or  some other edifying topic. Slap  him on the back and give him  the horse laugh. If the leader  insists on talking, pay no attention to him. He isn't talking to  you anyhow, but to some of those  new fellers who can't play their  parts.   Talk loud.  Above^ all, don't  forget that  yours is an amateur affair, and if  the leader doesn't like the way  you do, and gives you any back  talk, you can always quit and sew  up the band without it costing  you any money.

The best  that's going  is  Row to Make Your Band Succeed  Holton's Harmony Hints gives  the following suggestions, which  will be interesting to bandsmen  everywhere:  "Make it a point to miss at  least every third rehearsal. If  you do not do this the leader and  other members will get the idea  that you are not independent, or  that you need the practice.  "Always be at least fifteen  minutes later than the specified  time set for rehearsal. You know  that legally it is always 8 until it  is 9. Besides, if you came on  time they might not notice you.  You might vary the above rule  by coming down a half hour early  occasionally and filling-" in the  time by frantically blowing on  your instrument until they take  it away from you. About ten  good men jamming as hard as  possible in ten different keys, or.  better still in no key at all, advertises a band to the passers-by  as nothing else will.  When the leader raps for order  pay no attention to him until he  commences to heller and gets red  in the face. Then demand the  whereabouts of your music stand  and ask who has your red march  book.  The leader will probably start  with   a  march  that  you have  ^a^T5e1fOTe77^  to play, rouse up and say, "What- Okanagan. A home here ensures one of a good living,  chagonta play?" This will es- with climatic conditions the best to be found anywhere,  tablish your reputation as a humorist and will make them pay  particular attention to you next  time. If they should start without you, "fake" the piece, especially if on alto.    Plow loud.  Perhaps the leader may rap on  the stand, signifying that he  wishes to stop and try it over.  On no account humor him, or if  you must, do it gradually. The  effect of a band stopping suddenly is very annoying to listeners,  and is liable to throw some of the  cornet players over the dashboard. The alto section should  be the last  to  stop,   and they  sBest  and the way to prove it is to use it. This is the flour  of quality for homes of quality. It's the flour that  crowds out the   other   kind.

Enderby is the home of one of  largest and most complete lumber mills in the Province. The  A. R. Rogers Company's mill has  a capacity of 90,000 feet every 10  hours; and manufactures all kinds  of lumber, mouldings, box-shooks  and lath. The mill is lighted  by electricity, and when the  cutting season is in full swing-  can operate a night shift .with as  good results as with a day shift.  The company has a most complete electric lighting plant, furnishing not only its own light and  ; lumber tramway power, but also  supplying the city of Enderby  with a splendid system of electric lighting.  When the mill is working full  handed it employs in its camps  and mill about 400 men. This  makes a nice payroll for a town  the size of Enderby.  The Company has large timber  holdings, some 50,000 acres, located on the Spallumcheen and  its tributaries, down which the  logs are floated to the mill.  M. J.

The City Council felt safe in  acting on the wishes of the meeting as expressed through the  various speakers.  One of the questions brought  before the meeting by the Mayor  was that of the pound by-law.  Many citizens expressed themselves strongly on the question  and not one of the speakers favored the continuance of the  lax enforcement of the law, the  feeling of the meeting being that  the time had arrived when the  law should be made effective.  It now transpires that the  Council is not sure that the citizens desire the pound by-law enforced; therefore it does not feel  safe in doing anything in the  matter, and unless a plebiscite is  taken to discover if the meeting  was in earnest or not, it is doubtful if the law will be made operative.  Under these conditions the city  4s-no-bet-ter-off���������������������������than���������������������������if4t>ha&=nc-  pound by-law. To make a law  operative after the damage is  done, is like locking the barn  door after the horse is stolen.  Pound by-laws should be preventive rather than reparative,  but the present by-law is neither.  It is like asking each citizen to  do police duty for the city, so far  as the protection of his property  is concerned, the city shifting  from its shoulders onto the shoulders of the individual the responsibility of enforcing its laws.
