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.  Pa says: "Folks aint so bad as they're painted, because  mos' people don't know hotv to fill-in th' cracks."  FROM ONE MAN'S POINT OF VIEW  REVIVALISM is like most of the modern isms: it has very much of the  fake about it. Instead of the calm,  sane, unassuming, sweet naturalness of the  Nazarene, it comes clothed in the spirit of  the ordinary side-show,. and its appeal is  directed more at the emotions of the multitude than to its intellect and its sanity.  One would think that souls were saved by  blab, pathos, tears and tragic attitudes.  And for all I know they may be; I am not  saying they are not?  Some time ago a troupe of evangelists  visited an American city where I was located. There were fifteen, in the party.  The emotional wave ran high. Meetings  were held on the streets, in the churches,  on the house tops, in jails, railway stations,  business houses, and beer halls. There  were morning meetings, noon meetings,^  ^afternTOn^mwtmgs, evening meetings and  midnight meetings. There were meetings  for women only and men only, from which  boys and girls under 16 were excluded.  God only knows how much good was accomplished by all this excitement. It was  an emotional tempest���������������������������a mental maelstrom. People were so worked up by the  nightly orgy of emotional intoxication that  some believed the gift of tongues had been  given them, and they went about incoherently babbling stuff that pipe dreams are  made of, ���������������������������stuff that nobody could understand. They called it the work of the spirit,  but when the revivalists got away and the  excitement subsided, many of the ' "gifted"  found a home in the asylum.  All of which proves much or little, according to one's   mental aberration and  perspective. What we have in mind is  this: We do not know anything about the  religion of Christ that is not sane, reasonable, simple and kind. We do not know  anything about the religion of Christ that  cannot be told to father and son, mother  and daughter, husband and wife. We do  not know anything about the religion of  Christ that requires the husband to be absent that the wife may be told, or the wife  to be absent that the husband may be told.  We do not know anything about the religion of Christ that excludes the boys and  girls. We do not know anything about  the religion of Christ that justifies the  working of the shell game on the unsophisticated, and the promising of something  for nothing.  The modern revivalist says: "Meeting  for women only and girls over 16 years of  age;" "meeting for men only, boys under  16 not admitted." This smacks of the  cheap penny-picture arcades. It does not  sound much like the Master's call: "Suffer  little children to come unto me, and forbid  them not: for of such is the kingdom of  God. Whosoever shall not receive the  kingdom of God as a little child shall in no  wise enter therein."  o  NE cannot drive into the country about  Enderby without being amazed at the  dj_v__I_>pm_m^  few years. Then as we look over the vast  area of Indian reserve lying at our door, and  see not a vestige of improvemt, and realize  that none is possible while the land is tied  us as it is, we are greater amazed that a  civilized people will bind about themselves  a law that is neither humane, just or equitable, and say it can't be helped. To be  sure, the Indians should be provided for.  Fifty years ago they were provided for.  Six thousand acres were allotted to the  Spallumcheens. Then they numbered 2,000  or more. Today they number less than  200. The 200 occupy the same amount of  land as the original 2,000���������������������������and till probably 50 acres. The rest of the 6,000 acres  is no farther developed than it was 50 years  ago. And yet the government holds it away  from worthy white Canadian families.

Mr. El-  son's friends will hope that the  change will bring him back to  health and strength.  The man who thinks he is paying excessive taxes in Enderby  should look up the rate of other  cities���������������������������Vernon for instance. The  difference between 17 mills and  27 mills is considerable.  Miss Agnes Dale, on Friday  last, upon the certificates of Drs.

C, October 15, 1908  0  CELESTA  CREEK  One of the many creeks emptying into the chain of lakes at Mara.    A Favorite Trout Pool  Chas. W. Little informs us that he is receiving enquiries from all sections for copies  of the Mara booklet. For quick returns his experience carries off the palm. He made  a start Saturday week by giving our genial conductor on the Okanagan express a copy  of the booklet. Conductor Bongard hasn't been traveling up and down the Okanagan  all these years with his eyes shut. He has a brother, and the brother was looking for  fruit land. He gave the brother the booklet, and perhaps a tip or two. Anyway, on  Monday morning Norman Bongard got off the train at Mara and looked up Mr. Little.  He knew exactly what he wanted. Mr. Little had it and showed it to him. Mr. Bongard has been in the Colorado, Wenatchie and Yakima fruit districts, and knows fruit  land when he sees it. By noon the deal was closed. He bought 40 acres of the bench  land adjoining Mr. Little's.    He will put it into apples as soon as it can be cleared.  [>.  3  The Best is Not .Too..Good.  R. J. Col tart believes it is just  as costly to feed leather-medal  stock as gold-medal stock, and  he is proceeding to stock his  dairy with the best that money  can buy. While at New Westminster fair Mr. Col tart bought  the first-prize registered 3-month  Ayrshire bull, and he intends to  add gold-medal Aryshire heifers  next season. Mr. Coltart feels  that Enderby District should be  the breeding place for the finest  stock possible, and he is working  to that end. He believes that our  dairymen may as well have buyers coming here  for registered  _stojck-,as__.to_.go.elsew.iere.^-He^be-  lieves that pipe dreams are a  poor commodity, with which the  market is flooded, and that if we  produce the goods we won't need  to worry about buyers or price.  Killed While Felling a Tree  Owen Hughes was killed at A.  A. Faulkner's lumber camp last  Saturday while felling a tree.  The falling tree struck the dead  limb of another tree and the limb  fell across the man's head as he  was running to get out of danger.  His skull was crushed in, and he  lived but a short time. Andy  Faulkner and his men loaded the  unfortunate man into a canoe and  star-ted-down-stream-to^Enderbyr  They had not proceeded more  than a mile or two when death  came. Very little was known  about the dead man, and his  effects gave no information of  any value. Undertaker Holtby  took charge of the remains, interment taking place Monday.  Westward Ho!

C, October 15, 1908  Draft Horse Industry Flourishing  IT is a common remark of visitors of Enderby that we have  an unusually fine lot of horses.  Not only in our draft stock, but  our roadsters and fancy drivers  as well.   Horsemen tell us that  which have been doing service for the  past fifteen years in this country, it is  strange that not more black geldings  reach the market. When one scans  the prize list of the eight internationals which have been held, one cannot  fail to be astounded at the extremely  i small percentage of blacks which have  our climate, water and forage are j won    That percentage is not much  responsible for the excellent con-! increased wuen one comes to inspect  Ai-t-ir��������������������������� ~-e ~,,������������������   i, mi ! the entry lists, and it is open to doubt  dition of our horses.

Farmers are recognizing  that it pays to-work 'heavier horses and  heavier machinery;.. Melp, or at least  the sort .'of .help . it pays to hire nowadays, does not. promise to get much  more, plentiful, and the solution of the  farm labor problem lies in the utilization of heavier machinery and larger  draft horses. There is just as much  need for the real dra.tTer on the soil of  the corn belt as there is in the city, and  maybe a little more. The farmer needs  the weight in the collar even more  badly than, or atc least quite as badly  as, the city team user, and this need  will press more forcibly upon him in  time to come. With this sort of market before him and with the added  knowledge that for his best specimens  fancy prices will always be forthcoming the corn bell farmer who does not  devote his attention to the production  horses is losing a great oppor-  of heavy  tunit-v.

Nearly Half a Century Ago  Often little incidents in  life, which pass unnoticed,t  mark the great movement of  the world forward. Forty-  six years ago, a party of 150  pioneers crossed the prairies  into the interior of B. C. by  way of the North Thompson  river to Kamloops. Mrs. A.  Schubert was the only woman  in the party, a mother of  three children. Mrs. Schubert is today a woman of  strikingly beautiful features,  strong in body and mind.  A few days ago Mr. Fortune  drove Mrs. Schubert to town.  Together they climbed the  stairs to the long distance  telephone station in Jas.  Mowat's office. Connection  was made with Hedley and  I Mrs. Schubert talked to her  son James there. Forty years  ago it would have required a  month or two to get a reply;  from Hedley, at the cost of  a dollar.  Mr. Mowat states that the  long distance business with  the Valley is increasing rapidly. The secretary of the  company will be in Enderby  in a few days to complete  arrangements for the installation of the local system.  Labor sometimes needs to be protected from its fool friends.

One of the big departmental stores  of Toronto set aside for the exhibition week a special counter to display  books by, Canadian authors. It has  been a considerable time coming, but  the recognition of native literary merit  is bound to follow in Canada, the  very appreciative public of Britain,  and  the States.  The retail booksellers complain  that Canadian publishers injure their  trade by refusing to issue the cheaper  editions which are to be had in Britain and across the border. This is  true of such authors as Sir Gilbert  Parker and Ralph Connor, as well .as  those with more restricted circulation.  It is an axiom in the book trade that  the cheap editions sell the more expensive ones. This has been found  to be the invariable rule in England,  and the Canadian retailers complain  that the publishers do not give them  as good an opportunity as'they might  to  popularize   Canadian   literary   ar������������������  Shot Dear Out of Mercy.  Just because he put a young deer  out of misery, Mr. Box. of OJabogie,  doesn't see why he should be hauled  to court and fined.  Yet that is what happened. He  says the deer came into his district  with its jaw shot off and its leg broken. He>finished the job of ending the  cares of the animal instead of allowing it to die of slow agony.  But Capt. Alf. Hunter, game warden  of Belleville, got after him, and he  was summoned and fined $10. for kill-,  ing a deer, while R. Lee, who helped  to eat it, was also fined $10.

In   His   Early  Days  Tenniel   Resented  Idea  of  Working on  Journal.  It is related of Sir John Tenniel  that when,- in his early manhoocl, he  was offered a place, on the staff of  Punch, his first feeling was one of indignation. "Do they suppose there  is any tiling funny about me?" said  the artist, whose aspirations were for  classic painting. He was led to see,  however, that work for Punch had its  SI1J JOHN T_NNlh.L.  serious dignity, and accepted the post  of cartoonist offered by Mark Lemon,  the then editor, in 1851. Since then  over 2,000 famous cartoons have, come  from his pencil���������������������������an extraordinary record, when it is remembered that Sir  John lost the sight of one eye through  his love for fencing. Many of his  cartoons have been of. international  importance. Perhaps the most famous was that done by the veteran cartoonist when he was already quite an  old man. Tt was published in 1839,  the week after the Gorman Emperor  dismissed the Tron Chancellor, and it  bore the significant cut-line, "Dropping the Pilot.'' The picture made  a great impression abroad as well as  at home, and the original drawing was  purchased by Lord Rosebery, who  presented it to Bismarck. Sir John  is now in his  ninetieth  year.
