HfROM ONE MAN'S POINT OF VIEW  q:  SOME day the valley of the Okanagan  is going to be tapped by a railway from  the south, and, instead of being held  in check for the benefit of one road, and  the producers cut down to one market, the  Territories, they will have thrown open to  them another market���������������������������one superior in  many respects to the maiket now afforded.  Th3 railway from the south will bring the  mining camps of the boundary within a  few hours' travel of our Okanagan orchards,  our dairy farms, our vegetable gardens and  grain fields. Our producers will not then  be cut down to a market that is already  being made the dumping ground for the  surplus from the American orchards. Our  producers will then be able to strike back,  by dumping upon the American markets of  Washington the fruit and produce the  American growers force out of the markets  of the__T_enltorie&^  south is a proposition so old that it is gray  headed.    It is a proposition that conflicts  di������������������������������������U������������������(  for six months or more, will be  t to a head some time before New  Years.   Then Enderby will be heard from.  There are many matters of a public nature  that can only be dealt with  by a properly  constituted Board of  Trade.     Primarily  there is the matter of advertising the district.   At the present time this matter is  not being handled by anyone.   The booklet  published early in the season by The Walter Press, and purchased by the city, lies  safe and sn:ig in the city office, neatly tied  in packages of 200.    There have been fairs  galore held since the booklet was published  and   innumerable   opportunities   for the  booklets to do good missionary work, but  the city has slept onc; with this ammunition  for a pillow.   If a Board of Trade were in  operation,  this  matter  could have been  handled profitably���������������������������for the district as well  as hundreds of homeseekers desiring just  such information  as   the  booklets  give.  Again, our business people have repeatedly  been solicited,  and as repeatedly gave, to  have "write-ups" appear in outside periodicals, which have brought little or no returns;  whereas if the same  amount of  money were put into a  booklet and the  booklet circulated as it should be, the results  would have been  a  hundred fold  greater.    This is the legitimate work of a  Board of Trade.   It is work that cannot be  successfully handled by anyone else.^   In a  larger way,-there are  issues continually  Trade must deal with; for   instance,  the  matters of irrigation,  transportation, and  with the interests of the C.P.R too sharply j market, and we might add, the opening of  to ever pass on it merits.

L  AST week there was organized at Vernon an associated Board of Trade for  the Okanagan, with G. A. Henderson,  district manager of the Bank of Montreal,  president, and P. Dickson, Vernon, secretary-treasurer. Kelowna and Armstrong  participated in the organization. Enderby  sent word that she could be counted upon  so soon as a board of trade is organized  here.

Settlers in the  North Enderby District have to haul their  produce six miles to the railway, with the  track just across the river. A bridge from  bank to bank would bring the government  road within half a mile of the railway,  while without the bridge railway transportation is six miles away.

C, October 29, 1908  ______������������������__  One   thousand copies  of the  Mara  booklet,   16  pages,  with  eight splendid photos of the district,  cost about $125.   Result,  in two  weeks after the booklet  was out five properties sold and  parties coming in to see the district almost  daily.     One little  "write-up" in a Vancouver paper  a  year  ago cost   our business  men $80.  Results, nil.   One page  in a Vancouver magazine is costing  our   business   people   $60.  Results, ? This business of sending money out of town for that'  which can be supplied better at  home, is not good business.   For  $60  our  business  people could  have had 3000 copies of the Enderby   booklet   ' 'The Skookum-  chuck."    This booklet was compiled on  information furnished  by Mayor Bell,  City Clerk Rosoman, Geo. R. Lawes, Wm. Elson  and A.   L.   Fortune���������������������������men who  know the district thoroughly, and  whose information can be relied  upon.    Such a booklet placed in  the hands of homeseekers is better than pages of advertising in  even the best magazines. Or, for  $60 more we could have compiled  and printed  a  16-page booklet  with eight photos of the district.  ^Such^a^booklet^woukHomore^for  Enderby than thousands of dollars put into promiscuous advertising, ���������������������������provided,  of course, the  booklets are not taken home and  used  as-a pillow   upon which  pipe dreams are dreamt.   This is  not intended by way   of- complaint.    It is a plain statement of  facts we cannot get away from.  The mere fact that our energetic  business    men   have   shown   a  readiness to contribute towards  advertising the town, is evidence  of their good intentions, and is an  indication of what could be donk  if the effort were properly directed.   The desire   that Enderby  should advance is keen.     It has  been suppressed so long it is bubbling over. There is fire ahead  for the man who sits on the lid.  When we put out the booklet  "The Skookum-chuck," we had  in mind a larger and handsomer  booklet for the district, but when  we saw the supreme indifference  displayed by the city council, in  buying a thousand copies and  snugly poking them away in the  city office, with provincial and  district fairs going on all about  us, we concluded that nothing  could be accomplished until a  properly constituted Board of  Trade were organized, whose  business it would be to handle  such matters.  Surely it is time Enderby were  shaking off the leaves. In the  C.P.R. official directory the following appears: "Enderby, B.C.  ���������������������������Pop. 150; is the rival town of  Armstrong; has the same advantages and presents the same possibilities." This sounds good,  does it not? And we ourselves  are the greatest culprits. We  have been sleeping upon our possibilities too long.  Honestly now, don't you think  so?  Enderby has a population of  500;  is the oldest town in the  Okanagan; has one of the largest  and best equipped and managed  sawmills in the Province, also an  up-to-date 300-bbl    flour    mill;  large,   well-stocked stores, four  churches, common school,   high  school, fraternal orders,   newspaper, town band, electric light  and water systems,   fire protection; bank,   railway and   river  navigation; is   situated   on the  bank of one of the prettiest rivers  in the world, and backed by low,  green hills; is considered one of  the most   home-like,   attractive  towns in the interior of B. C.; in  climate   salubrious,  winters usually mild; plenty of good land in  vicinity   awaiting development;  irrigation not necessary; conditions ideal for fruit, hay, dairy  and general farming.    In short,  Enderby is ideal.    All we need to  do the trick is agitation, inspiration and perspiration, with an occasional funeral.  Are you planting any  street  trees this Fall ?

WALKER'S WEEKLY,  /"  XX  :\  When Colonel Touched the Pinnacles  s  COLONEL LOWERY has touched  the high spots of Canada. In  fact, he has spent most of his  days in and about, upon and around the  high spots. He has rubbed elbows with  the Knights of the Green, blown the  bloom off the Queens of Hardscrabble  Row, and blinked merrily in the face  of Fate when she left him shoeless and  shirtless upon a window-sill twenty feet  higher than pay dirt, with a jump in  bare feet upon shattered glass to escape  the tongues of fire that licked up his  bed. Colonel Lowery loves the high  spots.    The   mountains   are  his home.  Some time since he recalled a trip  made seventeen years ago, and told it  in The Ledge:  "Robson is .a nice cheerful locality  and as yet there is nothing to shock  the modesty of any schoolmaam or  enameled savage or .modem society,  For the Douks have not had time to  shed their clothes and start for Nelson in search of Jesus. " They generally do this in the winter time  when work is slack on their farms.  At Sproat's Landing, near Robson, I  spent a night seventeen years ago in  the Waldorf-Astoria hotel. The proprietor afterwards went .to the bad.  He became a Grit and was sentenced  to a government position at about  $3 00 a month and the overs. He has  never repented and is still alive.  This hotel was one of the best-ventilated that T have ever slept in. The  walls in my room were punctured by  apertures that would enable an occupant to view the moving pictures  in the next room. T glued my optics  4-Q^a4wa-i)eiituii__-aiuUgazed.,..into.,.,,the_  room on  the right.    It was occupied j QJ\  by a man  with a worried expression j  think of robbing an editor. However  he was mistaken about that, because  there are several people in this country right now who would rob a  preacher, let alone an editor, that is  provided the preacher was too drunk  to get the drop. However, I will not  further digress. After I had placed  the watch in my jewel case I looked  into the room on the left side. The  scenery in that room was^grand. In  the bed was a Jersey Lily, while over  a chair was her lingerie. Some of it  was bifurcated. The moon shone  brightly through the window and its  silvery gleams flirted with the golden  curls that listed with the wind as it  blew across the facial anatomy of the  sleeping gazelle. She' looked like a  rose that had blown out of a Spokane  drug store into the wilds of British  Columbia, Locked in the arms of  Morpheus she was snoring in a way  like someone under the influence of  onions. I turned my eyes away and  said my prayers. Just then the  elevator commenced running and  going into the hall I saw one of the  guests being put to bed with his  boots on. His breath was redolent of  Seagram's perfume and his appearance indicated that he had not been  to Sunday school for several moons.  I Those were the good old days in  Kootenay when a .man could go to  bed with his boots on and not lose  his position in^ society. Nowadays  the country has grown so feminine  that you cannot sometimes see the  scenery for Easter hats and in some  places it is extremely infra dig to  drink even cod liver oil out of a  bottle. Jn the early days everything  went as it looked, but now it is  screened with the veneer that white-  shirted people daub over civilization  in order to hide the pimples erupted  from a blood fed upon timidity, deception and toadyism."

Enderby Trading Com. 6  WALKER'S WEEKLY,  _ae  ���������������������������____  gees'  O 0  THE   SHEPHERD.  6~ -o  A prosperous sheep man says: One of  the most important things in making  the sheep business profitable is care.  Sheep feel neglect, and there is always  failure where they are kept in a shiftless, careless way. Every year raise  lambs that are better than their dams,  and your success is assured. Take good  care of the ewes. This care ought to  begin before the lambs come. Getting  ready is always the most important  part of all. The ewes should have the  best hay and grain we have in the crib.  Musty hay will not do. Heavy grain is  not the thing for the last few weeks  before the lambs come. Keep salt before the sheep at all times. They eat  lots of it.  Sheep and Dogs.  We   have   kept   sheep   for   the   last  twenty   years   and   never chad   a   dog  bother them, says a Maryland breeder.  ff you   will  put :'heep bells on  about  half of your flock you will not be bothered   with   dogs.     A   sheep  dog   is  a  sneak thief and  will not go where he  will make a noise.    Put fifty bells on  a   hundred   sheep,   and   you   need   not  lose any sleep listening for dogs.    The  bells  cost 75  cents   per dozen,  straps  about the same price.    I live in a dairy  section,  but some farmers keep sheep,  and dogs  attack  only  the  flocks  that  are not belled.  Weeds and Sheep.  Weeds  come   in   without  any   effort  on our part but in spite of our hardest  efforts to keep them out.    How can we  utilize them?    Pigs make good use of  them, but sheep will make the best use  of the  weed crop,   writes a  farmer in  Rural New Yorker.    Sheep can be tied  in a  fence  corner or  with  a   portable  fence kept on a small piece of ground  after one crop has been taken off and  _the.._ weeds ...start.    There are flozons nf_  ways in which the sheep can be used  to   keep   down   weeds,   and   they   will  prove a blessing to any weedy farm.  Shearing  Sheep.  Those   who   have   very   many   sheep  should   have a   shearing  machine.     It  does the work belter and quicker than  hand shears",   without so  much  injury  to  the  sheep.     Whore  one   has  but  a  few sheep it is better to go in with his  neighbors and get a machine.    But it is  well   to  learn  how   to shear  by   hand.  Teach the boys even though you have  a machine.    It is bad practice to leave  any  tags on   the sheep     If you don't  want them  in  the  wool, clip them  off  anyway just for tiie looks of the sheep.  The   best   time   to  dip   is ��������������������������� right  after  shearing.    Some   wait   until   the  tjpks  have all gone on to the lambs and then  dip   only   the   lambs.     Better   dip   all  sheep and lambs,  not once, but twice.  so  as   to  catch   the   ticks   that   hatch  after the first dip.  Special  Feed For Thin  Ewes.  It will pay to separate the thin ewes  from   the   rest   and   give  them   snodal  feed lor awhile. Don't leave them with  the rest to struggle for their living, bat  ���������������������������''ivf them a little advantage,  THE  STOCK RAM.  Pudiqree and Individual Excellence of  Vast Importance.  Many of those who own small flocks  only as a side line don't realize the  importance of buying rams of good  qualities and pure breeding. It is a  shortsighted policy to purchase an inferior ram because he can be got for  a few dollars less than one that is well  bred and of individual excellence.  The line bred ram has the prepotency that stamps his desirable qualities on his get. Usually the get of  the grade lacks uniformity. He is as  likely to transmit some of the undesirable traits of some of his mongrel  ancestors. No matter how good an individual he mav be, his inability to  transmit with certainty his own good  points disqualifies' him.  Professor Thomas Shaw says that  where but a small flock of sheep is  kept  and   but   one   ram   there  are  no  IN   THE   CHURCHES  CHURCH OF ENGLAND.

Where several stock rams are kept  they are given a small pasture by  themselves. If they can be given a  change of pasture occasionally they  are likely to do better, but this is  frequently fun ml impracticable As  stock ..rams are usually grained, somewhat heavily at the mating season,  the aim should be to bring them  through a portion of the summer at  least without grain.  This can usually be done when the  grazing is plentiful, nutritious an:l succulent. The effect on the .system is  cooling, the digestion is less taxed, and  ..the influence exerted is renovating.  But when the season draws near for  service it may be necessary to feed  grain to them again, that they may  begin the season's service strong and  vigorous.  D  PROFESSIONAL  R. H. W.

Long   Lines   Features   of   Smart   Cos-  tumes���������������������������Fichu  Effects and Drapery.  Long lines arc the most important  feature of the fashionabte rostume,  and to obtain such effects many resources are. employed. Coat effects,  tunics that hang gracefully on the figure from shoulder to a point low on  the skirt, tunics with long haugiug  points, sashes, tabs and all the devices  isnown to the dressmakers are brought  into use.  Now that fichu effects and shawl  draperies are so much in vogue one  of those old fashioned fringed, white  embroidered china silk shawls would j  be useful to its owner. It could first  be iiym\ to match the color of the  pown and arranged as a tunic on a  frock.  The shirt  waist illustrated  is made  as*  A Novel Salad.  Do you want to serve a salad that  isn't commonplace? Make it of cherries, luscious pink and white oxhearts  served on delicate green lettuce hearts  covered with a highly seasoned French  dressing.  Stone the cherries so as to crush  them as little as possible. They may  be used alone, or the centers can be  filled with pecans. Put them on the  ice uutil thoroughly chilled.  The French dressing is mixed in a  bowl which has been rubbed with a  clove or garlic and a small piece of  oniou and is made hot with red pepper. Allow the cherries to stand in  it for at least half an hour before  serving.  This salad is as charming to the eye  as to the palate and may be quickly  and easily cprepa red in an emergency.  Ice Cream Whims.  A block of ice cream covered with a  meringue, set in the oven to color and  served immediately, is an "easy device  to combine heat and cold in one food.  Vet another whim is to roll some rich  paste vaiy thin, cut in squares, put a  spoonful of firm ice cream in the center and fold the moistened edges and  pinch so that no heat can get in.   Set  quickly   into  a   very   hot oven   which  will   bake   the   paste   before   it   melts  the ice.    Serve instantly.    This liking  for eating a  combination of temperature is further indulged by serving hot  apple   pie   or   baked   Indian   pudding  garnished    with    a    spoonful   of   ice  cream.

This may seem a trouble,  but the results after ironing make it  worth while.  Another reason that the new plait-  Ings lie flatter than formerly is that  they are put in perfectly flat after  plaiting, allowing no fullness of gathers.

On his journey north in the Arctic  Captain Bernier has great latitude.  The instructions to the Canadian Government cruiser propose that the vessel follow up the work in which she  has been employed for several years  past of ascertaining Canadian authority in the portions of the polar regions which belong to the British  crown. In so doing Captain Bernier  has been warned not to take any  course which might result in complications with a foreign country. On  the way north lve was to observe the  conditions in Hudson Bay Straits as  to ice, and proceed thence to the  whaling stations in Cumberland Gulf.  From Baffin's Land he is to cross to  the Greenland shore, to push north  to the entrance to Lancaster Sound.  From the mouth of Lancaster Sound  he is to push down the Sound  and proceed as far west as possible.  The country on either side is to be  visited, all the old depots are to be  examined, and Capt. Bernier is to  take a look as far as conditions will  permit at the various sounds and  straits leading north and south from  Melville Bay and Bank Strait."  In the event of the Arctic being able  to pick her way through Lancaster^  Sound and Melville Sound she: is to  take formal possession of Banks Land  and neighboring islands westward of  those which were visited on her last  cruise.  THEY KEE0 GA;UC.  Scottish   Canadian   Dassen't  Go  Over  Without Talking the yTalk.  That Gaelic is not yet to be reckoned among the dead languages is clearly evident from the strange predicament in which a young Canadian of  Scottish ancestry found himself on  going over to old Scotia this summer  for the first time to see some of his  relatives still living in the land of the  heather.  In a letter to a friend in Toronto he  w ritos i n pa_i_j_:__ _L wen t-iip .north _ in to-  the Western Hebrides to pay my res-poets to my ancestors, and spent  about two weeks in the Highlands. It  was really about the strangest place  I   wjis  ever   iu.    Nearly  everyone  on  the  island   of is  a. relative of  mine, and very few of them can speak  .V.nglish. I was prepared for a great  deal of Gaelic, but had no idea, it  y:'ui](| ho so 1)m1 as it was. Of course,  it \va,s awkwanl for me. as I haven't  it word of Gaelic, and there were first  cops ins there who- could not speak a  word to me.  "It is a very backward place. I was  those two weeks without seeing a  newspaper. The people live in little  thatched cottages, with mud floors  and open peat fires, and the hens are  always running around inside of the  house. Young Scottish-Canadians  would hardly believe that this was a  true picture of any part of the land  of their ancestors at the present  time."  Labor sometimes needs to be protected from its fool  friends. JHCH  ���������������������������JJ-1.1.L-J-.  ',������������������..

In  that month the sweet incessant business of bird and beast lessens or is at  an end. The woodpecker may still  tap at the boles of gnarled oaks and  chestnuts; the squirrel is more than  ever mischievously gay; on frosty  mornings, when the gossamer webs  are woven across every bramble, and  from frond to frond of the bronze-  stained bracken, the redbreast tries  and retries the poignant new song  he has somehow learned since first  he flaunted his bright canticles of  I larch and April from the meadow-  hedge on the sunn eel greenness of the  beech-covert. But there is a general  silence, a present suspense, while the  lime yellows, and the birch takes on  her pale gold, and oak and sycamore  and ash slowly transmute their green  multitudes  into  a   new  throng  clad  in russet or dull red or sunset-orange.  The forest is full of loveliness: in  her dusky ways faint azure mists  gather. When the fawn leaps through  the fern it is no longer soundless:  there is a thin dry rustle, as of a dove,  brushing swiftly from its fastness in  an ancient yew. One-may pass from  covert to covert, from0 glade to glade,  and find the Secret just about to be  revealed ��������������������������� somewhere beyond the  group of birches, under that pine it  may be, just behind that isolated  thorn. But it is never quite overtaken.    It is as evasive as moonlight  in the hollows of waves. When  present, it is already gone.
