A blue pencil mark here indicates that your subscription is past due,  and the editor would like to retain your name on the roll of honor.  What a hell of a thing hell i  s.  FROM ONE MAN'S POINT OF VIEW  A PROSPECTIVE Enderbyite writes for  information. "I would like to hear  something about the town of Enderby," she writes. "What is the population  of the town; are th^re houses to rent, and  what do they rent at; what is the price of  fuel and other things; is the town on a  lake or near one. ... In religion we are  Baptist. We would like to go into the  Valley in the Spring if we get any encouragement. "  Answer: Population about: 500; houses  rent for from $6 to $10 per month; wood  $2 and $3 a cord; "other things" in proportion; the town is situated on a river;  Baptists are not tabooed; if you are prepared to work, there are as good opportunities here as can be found anywhere.  Nature has been kind to Enderby. The  town's situation is magnificent. It is surrounded by a wealth of natural advantages  The person who is prepared to make the  most of these advantages need not want  for anything. But don't come to Enderby  to escape a funeral.  ands of school  children are permitted to  retain their good health.  It seems that the medical boards endeavored to pass compulsory vaccination legislation throughout Canada about the same  time. Alberta was not so fortunate as B.  C. and did not have any of the newspapers  to continue the agitation. A despatch  from Edmonton shows what some of the  parents have been up against:  Edmonton, Sep. 8.���������������������������This city is likely to get into trouble  as a result of the recent decision that all children must be  vaccinated before being allowed to attend school. A great  deal of discussion has occurred concerning the death on  Saturday last of Vivian Victoria, the 8-year-old daughter  of A. W. Foley, provincial poultry superintendent. The  matter has reached such a stage that the medical health  officer, Dr. Whitelaw, has demanded an inquest, and one  will be held tomorrow by Dr. H. R. Smith. On August 20  the child was vaccinated by Sidney C. Main, assistant  health inspector, who is not a medical practitioner. It is  alleged that death was due to the vaccination. Mr.  Foley has written Dr. Whitelaw charging that the child's  death was due to the vaccination, which he claims was both  illegal and criminal. He also stated that his child was  "murdered by the city" by means of the vaccination operation and threatens to begin legal action.  This is only one of many cases that might  be cited where death has come in the vaccine point, and yet there are fool medical  boards that still pretend to claim that a  healthy body is made less liable to a disease by being weakened through having  i the poison of the disease forced into it.  | The people of British Columbia can thank  their stars that we have at Victoria- a go.v_���������������������������  I ernment considerate enough of the people's  ! rights to make the vaccination of the chil-  | dren optional with the parents.

The City Council made a good  bargain with the company, one that is fair  and reasonable to all concerned, and, since  the city's interests are safe-guarded, it is  not probable that there will be any opposition recorded against the by-law. Every  ratepayer recognizes that this is a step in  the right direction, as the need of a local  and long distance 'phone is acutely felt.  putting up the money. In the recent anti-  vaccination agitation in the province, not  one of the "city" papers picked it up. The  work was done entirely by the "little" papers whose editors can afford to express an  opinion now and then. It is to these  "little" newspapers that # the public owes  its gratitude for the revision of the compulsory vaccination order; and that thous- 9  WALKER'S WEEKLY,  XxC  _XXI  xx:  NEWS IN AND ABOUT THE TOWN AND DISTRICT ������������������  ixx:  Found  A cheque for $9.60.

While it is to be regretted that  there are no district exhibits  which it was hoped would materialize, the entries so far received from southern points indicate that the show of fruit will  be unprecedented. An extra  large number of enties have been  received from Peachland and  other down the lake points, and  the people of Vernon will find it  necessary to do their utmost if  they would carry off the prizes  in this department.

C., September 17.  1908  A 'Dangerous Practice.  Married men must be careful about kissing brides.  Their wives may not say anything about it at the time,  but afterwards, when they  are mad about something  else, they will bring it up  and jaw it. We knew a man  who was told by his wife to  kiss a bride whose wedding  they attended together, and  a year later the wife told  her husband that he had acted so horrid about the matter that she wanted to sink  through the floor. She said  that he held the bride's hand  and coaxed her, saying he  would never like her if she  did not kiss him, and acted  a good deal like a big sick  I calf���������������������������therefore if husbands  j want to avoid trouble they  j will avoid kissing brides,  | even if their wives insist  j upon it.  i  I  !

C, September 17   1908  THE  BRAIN  OF  GENIUS.  Preponderance   of    V������������������ _ir;������������������tt   Theory    Is  No Longer Accepted.  The old theory that weight of brain  endows its possessor with superior faculties  has  long since  been  discarded.  Sims   has   demonstrated   conclusively  that   many   celebrated   men   possessed  brains having a lesser weight than the  brain of ordinary mortals or even of  idiots.   The brilliant Gam betta  had a  brain  which  did not equal in  weight  that of the average child,  while the  brains of Agassiz, Byron, Daniel Webster. Napoleon and other great men did  not exceed in weight those of the ordinary commonplace man.  A curious fact  was that, heavy as it'was, the brain of  Turgenev.   the   Russian   novelist,   was  greatly exceeded in weight by that of  an ignorant laboring man.  All of which  goes  to prove  that  a   heavy   brain  is  no criterion of a person's intellectuality, nor does a light brain denote inferior mental capacity.   Sims advocated  the theory that the rolder the climate  the larger is the brain. Marchanci in  some very interesting studies has demonstrated that there is no constant relation between body weight and brain  weight. In general the weight of the  brain is greater between the ages of  twenty and sixty than between sixty  and eighty. In estimating the mental  capacity of a brain it is necessary to  consider qualitative conditions and  morphologic superiority as well as and  in preference to the weight of the organ.  A most remarkable suggestion, recently made by Dr. Edward A. Spitz-  ka, is well worthy of careful study and  development. In a recent address before the American Philosophical society he stated that his observations go  to show that men of an aggressive  military trend are born when their fathers are between twenty and thirty  years old. when the father is between  thirty and forty the son is likely to be  given to the arts or literature, between  forty a_id fifty he is apt to become a  great statesman, and when the father  is .past nily," as in the cases or Aristotle and Benjamin Franklin, the son is  destined to show remarkable brain development and ability. The influence  of a father's age upon the brain capacity of his offspring is a new subject  awaiting the developing touch of some  ambitious investigator.���������������������������W. A.

The Okanagan Telephone Co.  business was the first to come up.  The Council had received legal  advice from Hon. Joseph Martin,  K. C. on the points in dispute  between the city and the company, and at an unofficial meeting  Tuesday night it was decided to  place the matter in the Mayor's  hands, who proceeded to Vernon  Thursday and with the opinion  of Mr. Martin to support him, he  succeeded in having an agreement drafted, which was reported to the council. The agreement was read and passed upon  section by section. An error was  found in the indemnity section  and the clerk was instructed to  return the agreement to Billings  & Cochrane for correction. Other-  wise it was passed by the council  without discussion. The clerk  was instructed to incorporate the  agreement in a by-law which will  be submitted to the voters for  ratification. The opinion of Mr.  Martin supported the position  taken by the city in the three  main points of difference, i. e.  the matters of voting upon bylaw, indemnity and time-limit;  and with these clauses incorpor-  ated the council was satisfied with  the agreement. -..���������������������������'.'. o ���������������������������  Special Bargains in Ginghams  This Week  Ladies' Lustre  Waists  Ladies' Leather  Belts  15 per cent off Boys & Men's  Suits  Fresh Groceries of all kinds always on hand  WHEELER & EVANS  A letter was received from the  school board asking the city to  furnish double desks for use in  the high school to be established  in connection with the public  school. Clerk was instructed to  ask the school board to purchase  the desks when needed and send  the bill to the city.  Clerk Rosoman submitted a  financial statement showing expenditures to date and an estimate showing what funds the  city will have to operate upon  the balance of the year. Aid. Rut-  tan and Evans thought the balance available justified the expenditure of more on the streets  and they moved a motion that  lumber be provided for a sidewalk  to be laid by the property owners  on Belvedere street beyond P.  GreyelPs home, and also that  Russell street be opened and side-  walked to Sicamous street. Carried.  A letter was read from R. E.  Gosling, provincial archivist, soliciting photos, etc. of a historical  nature relating to Enderby and  district for exhibition at New  Westminster.  Aid. Evans submitted a proposition suggesting that the city  set aside each month a sum  to pay the Enderby City Bandmaster for his services as director.   The matter was tabled.  The matter of the city building  a suitable building on the recrea-  tiunlpOTntllWbe-^  itiori purposes in the summer and  a skating rink in the winter was  discussed unofficially, but no  action was taken.  _ The Ei nanceXJommittee recommended the payment of the following accounts:  H.

"The great hay ranch on the river ne���������������������������r the  Mara station has the record of the Valley for  quantity per acre and quality of the hay. It comprises 300 acres, only part of which is under cultivation.   0)i this ranch, a tract of 180 acres, part  been slashed and burned over, and would be easily  cleared. Fifty dollars an acre, or less, would put  it in condition for the plow, and. there you have  for, say $75 an acre, land as good as any in the  Valley which is bought at $200 an acre. Within  half a mile of Mr. Little's place, on the main  wagon road, there was pointed  out to the writer  ^nFirThay7t^  offered at $15 an acre. The land here is a blue  sub-soil, topped'by more than three feet of black  illuvial deposit. The owner of this farm is cutting-  hay this season from one ten-acre .patch that was  seeded more than 15 years ago, and has never been  re-seeded. This should give a pretty good idea as  to the quality of the soil.  ^''Mara is" waking ii pto the fact"that it is people  she needs. The holders of the big tracts of land,  and the farmers who have been able to clear only  a small part of their holdings, feel that it is costly  to themselves and the district; to have so much of  the most valuable land so absolutely useless. They  want to induce others to come and help them, and  to share with them the prosperity that will be  theirs, and they are offering portions of their holdings at prices which show their wisdom and sincerity, and which will eventually bring in a class  of people who will make Mara the ideal spot of  the North End. Mara's situation is ideal. It has  the Shuswap river flowing through it, and it has  the Mara lake, nine miles long and two miles wide,  to contribute to its beauty. From Mara lake, one  can boat down the Shuswap chain of lakes 100  miles to Kamloops, and can travel 300 miles or  more up the various rivers which feed the lakes.  :y    ii!
