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:   "No man what's honest an' right is afraid o'  bein' talked about.  ~~-rxrm~  72*-  FROM ONE MAN'S POINT OF VIEW  THE great drawback to honest criticism  in any small community is this: men  insist upon localizing the issue and  measuring the individual rather than the  truth or principle the individual stands for.  Prejudice stands in the way of reason, and  the great broad principle of right is lost in  the pettifogging cry of Vanity, whose pride  , has suffered a prick from the shaft of Truth.  There are men in all communities who  can recognize Truth wherever found. Intuitively they know the right of an issue  when it is brought out. There are others  whose prejudice will not permit sane reason  to lift her head, and who blind their eyes  to Truth when she comes dressed in a garment, unlike their own.  In another column the editor is pleased  to produce an unsigned communication  from a friend who, under the caption, "A  Plea for Unity/' says some very earnest  "Buttie "speaks"  of his day,��������������������������� men who-put-up-With no criticism and ruthlessly brushed aside all who  dared to question their authority,���������������������������indicate  that the no criticism policy was not his  policy.  The thing is, not to be afraid of criticism  nor to hate it, but rather to court it and  profit by it. The author afraid of criticism  is a "dub," the actor who cannot stand  criticism is a false alarm. Progressive  men in all vocations court criticism. They  recognize in the severest critic their best  friend. It is the man of small calibre that  looks upon criticism as opposition. The  critic is destructive only to those things  and conditions which are of themselves  destructive. Silence criticism and you take  out of the community its best impulse in  the daily march forward. Criticism is not  chastisement. It is the goad that inspires  men to do things, not dream them.  I  s.  ADMIRE a man wherever I find him.  We may hold different opinions on questions that interest us, but that need not  mar our friendship. I do not admire an  individual, wherever I find him, who condemns unheard the man he does not know.  A preacher the other day accused us of  putting stuff in this paper that was a disgrace to any decent man. Of course, we  may be very indecent ourselves���������������������������not as decent as the preacher, to be sure���������������������������but we  are acquainted with other men and women  The     preacher  in half-truths.    He does not reach deep  enough.    He would for the sake of what  he calls "unity," build falsely upon a rotton  bottom.   HeVould erect his house upon  shifting sand.    "Criticise nothing,"   says  he, and then proceeds to lay down rules  that in his mind would bring unity.     The  thought back of-his words is good; he has  an ideal, but the ladder he would climb to | may disagree with him in many things and  reach it is frail and without a rung safe for !   JM1 '    _1       x'    rnu���������������������������~ - ��������������������������� :-~ 1-���������������������������'  as decent as  who strongly commend the very stuff the  preacher condemns. We do not see why a  preacher cannot be as sane and reasonable  as anyone else. Not that we expect him  to relish everything we say, but that he.  should allow that there are decent men and  women outside of his particular faith as  well as in it, and that these men and women  a community to stand upon. Without  honest criticism this world would be a  cipher in the sum of time and we a lot of  sap-heads. Criticism honestly maintained  and conscientiously directed is the finest  tonic a community can have. The Man of  Nazareth recognized this ^ fully, and his  words to the pharisees,  priests and scribes  still be decent. There are men in business  in Canada, licensed by the government,  that have been classed as low down scoundrels by this preacher, and yet I have seen  these men do more practical charity, and  be more practically helpful, than the institution of which the preacher is a part. It  is not fair to damn a man we do not know,  nor condemn what we do not understand. WALKER'S.-WEEKLY,  IMI.IUI1WW  zxxz  XX.  NEWS IN AND ABOUT THE TOWN AND DISTRICT  rxxr  i  i  3:  A.

The hall  was packed as it always is when  the Pythian Sisters get busy.    It  prepared for a skating rink this  winter, and .when spring opens  make it ready for tennis. Mr.  Hood, an experienced rink man,  will take charge of the ice, and  we may be sure, if Jack Frost  does his part,������������������ that we will have  as fine ice as ever was skated  upon.  F. H.

C, October 22, 1908  Poultrymen Organizing  The poultrymen of Enderby,  Armstrong and Salmon Arm are  organizing,  not exactly as one  ������������������ organization, but with one object  and one purpose.     Bird fanciers  are   numerous  about  Enderby,  and the idea of a winter poultry  ' show met with  ready response.  Armstrong also has a fine lot of  utility  and   fancy  breeds,  also  Salmon Arm, and the poultrymen  of both these districts are prepared to join in the movement.  It is the intention to have a regular   score-card   show,    and   a  prominent judge from the East  will be engaged to scoreihe entries.     A combined meeting of  the representatives of  each of  the districts has   not  yet been  held, and the question of where  the first season's   show will be  held has not been considered.    It  will probably be decided at the  meeting to be held in Enderby  Saturday afternoon, Oct. 31st.  Great interest is shown by the  poultrymen. They are just beginning to realize what it means  to the districts, and already the  work is well in hand. Men like  Mr. H. Smedley mean business  when they pick up the first-prize  cockrel at Victoria, paying $15  for him.  Considerable activity is evident  in buying fine fowls locally, and  we   may expect to see a large  number go into fine poultry who  have heretofor been satisfied to  raise anything in the way of a  hen that could lay  an egg.   If  you are going to buy any thorough  bred poultry, now is the time to  get it, regardless of  the breed  and the number of the birds you  may want.    Fall is the season for  low prices, and,   in order to reduce their  stock before winter  sets in,  breeders offer very attractive bargains at  this time.  The best stock is usually picked  up before spring, and thus good  opportunities  are lost by .prospective buyers. A further reason  for making the purchase now is  that if the birds are shipped now  while the weather is mild, they  will not be so likely to acquire  colds, out of" whicha may later  -LUJitI  develop roup,   or similar trouble.  Last Saturday afternoon in the  King Edward, the second meeting of the Northern   Okanagan  Poultry association was held. The  attendance was   not large,  but  intense   interest   was    shown.  Mr.   Petard   and   Mr.  Marshall  were in   attendance from Armstrong.    A   letter  from   F.   B.  Howarth,   Salmon Arm,   sfated  that a partial  organization  had  been effected there   and asking  for information as to when the  next meeting is to be held, so as  to enable Salmon Arm to be represented.  Mr. Petard and Mr. Marshall  were appointed provisional directors for Armstrong, to act until  organization is effected there and  directors are regularly appointed.  The secretary was instructed  to communicate with several Canadian poultry and pet stock exhibition judges, with a view of  finding out when one of them  could be available.  A lot of men are like soda fountains-give off a lot of froth but  mighty little solid substance.  ?  ���������������������������&������������������    ���������������������������  \ If you wish to save money, PAINT NOW ' I have on hind n mnnHfv ^  paint suitable for all kinds o/outside painting, which I do not wish to^can-v over  winter, and will sell same at LESS THAN COST for the next 30 days  i      5������������������ n(S miss this GREAT OPPORTUNITY !

The grading of  Russell street from George  to Sicamous, opened a choice  locality; the gravelling of  Cliff street should add much  to the navigability of that  thoroughfare when the soft  weather comes. Two thousand feet of sidewalk has been  laid, greatly improving conditions for the pedestrian in  all directions. The system  of surface drainage installed  early in the summer, will, it  is believed, afford quick  drainage for that section of  the town tapped by it.  It will be interesting to  know what the cost has been  of this work. It has all been  paid out of the general revenue. In a statement submitted to the city council by  City Clerk Rosoman some  weeks ago, the total receipts  from all sources, independent  of the $2000 raised by loan,  for waterworks extension,  was $7,592. Of this amount  $1,935 went to the public  school, $1000 to pay bank  loan, $900 to drains, $500 to  Bobbie Stood In.  Little Mollie had hastily  undressed and jumped into  bed without saying her  prayers.  "Why dearest!" said the  nurse. "Aren't you going  to say you're prayers tonight  especially when you have  had a new baby brother  brought to the house today?"  "No, I ain't," said Mollie.  "And that baby brother's  just the trouble."  "But why?" asked the  nurse. "Don't you like your  baby brother?"  "What's the use?" queried  the little girl. "I've been  prayin' # for a little . sister  every night for six months,  and Bobbie, he only began  askin' for a little brother  yesterday, and he got his  right off."  Not in Enderby  he collided with a box picket fence which had beeri  placed around a tree to protect it. Being somewhat  unsteady on his limbs, the  man grasped hold of what  he supposed was a picket  fence and started to feel his  way along. After rotating  around the tree for half an  hour he appeared somewhat  puzzled at the extraordinary  length of the fence, but he  kept bravely on for some  time. Finally, however, his  courage failed him, and h  sank down at the foot of th  Cs  box fence with a groan of  despair. "Fenced in!" he  moaned. ���������������������������Saturday Sunset.

Thriving Class Make Their Living by  Telling  Lies   Under  Oath.  There is much virtue in an alibi.  Unlike Boyle Roche's famous bird, a  man cannot be in two places at once,  and you invariably find that the "first  idea of the professional criminal when  arrested on circumstantial evidence is  to prove an alibi.  As is pretty well known, however,  there exists in India, and also in  China, a large class of professional  perjurers. For a sum equivalent to  four shillings you can hire a man to  swear in a law court to any tale you  choose to make him learn. Mr. Kipling, in one oi his stories, describes  the kind  of thing.  All through the East these professional perjurers form a regular class,  and even British rule has utterly failed to exterminate them. Indian judges  have long ago learnt to take all evidence with rathe)1 more than the proverbial grain of. salt.  Even in.this country the law courts  are not free from a similar curse. Bill  Sykes always knows where to lay his  hand on a man who, for a consideration varying between one pound and  five, will take his oath that Bill.was  ill the bar at the Blue Dragon at .the  very minute when the police aver that  he   was   escaping   from   the  home  of  Lord  B , with the best part of the  family plnte in a bag on his back.  Some o: these, gentry the police get  to know. But even so, the authorities are almost powerless. Perjury is  a difficult thing to prove, and it is  only in the divorce courts that there  is a King's Proctor to watch the evidence, and take such steps as he sees  fit.  The professional perjurer has been  to the fore in several of the most sensational cases which ever came before  the courts of this country, and more  than once, by the cleverness of counsel, has been detected and exposed.  .Take the great Parnell-Pigott case.  The case against Mr. Parnell hinged,  t will Iv remembered, on a letter from  :i. member of the Clan-na-Gael, a fac-.  simile 'of. which   Pigott swore he had  bought in Paris.  iToiTi^RiTREeli^rvHlvillow^enT^w'ho^was-  '���������������������������Livelihood."     ana     several     ocnersy  "Oh, and- one other"; he ended with  "hesitancy."  Pigott spelt the word "hesitency."  It was spelt in the same way in one  of the incriminating letters. Forty-  eight hours later Pigott was a proved  perjurer and   forger.  In the Meikle case, which caused a  tremendous sensation some years ago  in New Zealand, a well-to-do farmer  named John Meikle was charged with  sheep stealing. He .was convicted  solely through the evidence of a man  named Lambert, who was afterwards  proved to be a professional perjurer,  and to have,been highly paid for his  evidence by an enemy of Meikle.  Poor Meikle served a sentence of  seven years' hard labor; yet, after  he got out of prison, he set to work  with, splendid pluck, secured the conviction of Lambert, and established  his own innocence.

W. Little, single-  handed and alone, has done  more to turn the attention of  homeseekers   to   the   north  end of the Okanagan than  anything that ever happened.  As the result of his Mara  booklet he made two more  nice sales last week, and he  has not really started yet.  He is, in fact, just getting  ready. By next spring he  will have another and still  handsomer booklet out, and  in circulation through all the j  best channels. He has a|  large and splendid field, and  can go to homeseekers with  "the goods."  If one individual can do so  much in so little time, what  might not a community do  if all would contribute a  little? Enderby is the seat  of a section of magnificent  possibilities. Its beauty-spots  are numerous; its sites for  homes are unsurpassed, and  back of it all, we have the  land that produces the crops.  While Enderby can grow  fruits to perfection, and cereals, hay and vegetables as  well as they can be grown  any place, still we do not believe these are   going to be  4he^steady^mone_y=m akers-for.  all.    Poultry and stock raising seem to promise the best  for the future.    British Columbia has never had sufficient butter and eggs to supply the home demand.    Andi  the demand of the future, j  with all the railway building;  and city building, and thous-j  ancls coming to develop the\  vast country   being opened;  up,   promises   to   be   very';  much greater than   can be |  supplied at home. |  A booklet pointing out the  advantages offered here,  would induce hundreds seeking homes to come and see  what we have to offer.    En  derby does not need to stand  aside. What it does need  is more public spirit; more  unselfish effort to make its  advantages known. To get  out a creditable 24-page  brochure, illustrated, descriptive of Enderby would  cost in the neighborhood of  $150 per thousand. It would  be worth $15,000 to us. Here  is $20 towards getting it out.

Dorothy Dale iu an interview has  the following to say about Mrs. Bryan  and her home: The mistress of Fair-  view was at homo when I arrived. So  was Mr. Bryan He came out after  the servant to greet me-with: "Mrs.  Bryan decidedly objects to being interviewed. She has nothing important to  pay." Pause. "However, a visit is  different. Oh. Mary!" he called,  "Mamma. Mary!" And I understood  why that voice holds a multitude.  Mrs. Bryan came. There was an  amused twinkle in her gray eyes as  she held out a hand and prefaced by  saying that she didn't really need any  introduction to the people of her country. She was by no means a debutante.  That is Mrs.  Bryan's way.    She ac-;  cepts  everything graciously,  serenely.  Her manner says that if she is to go to  "��������������������������� ^.':'v>?__?>_.-**"__^i  -. ������������������������������������������������������:,'-��������������������������� ���������������������������ei-!::;>v.crA3^!__������������������:r__  E  ^S-~  ,__Zz������������������  T?'*������������������f_V...- JT  good Campaigning is only one interesting phase- of life, after all. But  "Wherever she goes and whatever she  does she will always be bigger than  the circumstance Every detail of her  home life shows (hat.  For instance, a Nebraska hill knows  the sun in all his glory. Besides, it  is treeless. But (his did not disturb  Mrs. Bryan. She planned a house  which, waiting for trees to grow,  would be comfortable. Then she considered the grounds. There were acres  in them, rounding up from the roadway far below.  A lawn would look bare aud stiff,  she decided. So alfalfa was sown.  And no one who has not seen the  bushy green growth can appreciate  how it softens the vast expanse. The  alfalfa also stays green long after fall  has seared other glasses.  Then the porch���������������������������it is a masterpiece.  From the outside it is a curving  white heat reflector with its panels of  glistening windows. But inside you  are introduced into another world.  The house is red brick. The porch  pillars are of red stone. And connecting  these is a circular wall of windows,  shadedand arranged so that the sun is ,  kept out and every morning breath of  air let in. Vines droop from the walls.  Ferns and flowers surround the supporting pillars. And with the bamboo  furnishings and Indian rugs it looks  as inviting as a mountain grotto.  However, its invitation is deceptive,  for it's a sort of watch tower, where a  servant keeps guard and detains politicians and autot'i'aph seekers aud the  rest of the daily pilgrimage to Fair-  view that has some pretext for overstepping the camera line.  The rest of the house is a gallery of o  nrt gems and curios. From Mr. Bryan's study and the dining room, built  below ground for coolness, to the garret roof there are beautiful gleanings  from the Occident and orient.  The Bryan household is large.  Everything is well apportioned. Everything runs smoothly. If people are  re a d .v_.fo.r_ 11) e a I __ .when _ m_ e a Is a ijo roa _!>_._   very well.

Hudson Maxim contends that the use  of airships in war does not hold forth  auyterrifying prospects. The dropping  of dynamite from such vessels, he  says, might cause some superficial destruction, but it must penetrate and  explode inside battleships and earthworks to do really great damage. Half  a ton of that explosive dropped upon  the four inch deck of a battleship  might kill soine men, wreck part of the  superstructure of the vessel and dent  the deck, but the destruction would not  be extensive. Nor would the dropping  of such a charge on coast fortifications  cause serious damage, the action of  dynamite being such that the olast,  being unconlined. would rebound into  the air in the form of an inverted cone,  so that the effect in a horizontal plane  would be sir.all. 10  WALKER'S WEEKLY,  <s)  mmijrijt-  VANITY'S  VISIONS.

JONES  Con tractor unci Builder  Canada has stringent election laws. The regulations  look well on paper, but in  practice the whole law is a  big farce. The law makes it  an offense punishable by a  fine of $200 for any printing  house -to print any matter  upon the election/ which does  not bear the imprint of the  printer. And yet the dead  walls about town are plastered over with highly colored show bills sent out by  the Liberal campaign managers, which are neither educative nor reasonable. The  election law also makes it a  misdemeanor, and imposes  a fine of $200 upon anyone  posting this anonymous campaign stuff, and yet our good  Liberals in the dead of night  think nothing of plastering  the town with it. A campaign booklet gotten up in  the shape and style of Little  Bo-peep and circulated anonymously, is another bright  Liberal dodge. All of which  is contrary to law. Just what  the party can expect to gain  by the circulation of this sort  of campaign rot is beyond  our comprehension. The printer who put it out was evidently so much ashamed of  itjthajb he would not put his  imprint on it. The very nature of it presupposes a very  low intellectuality. If  there were any number of  Canadian voters who could  be influenced by this sort of  thing, we should be ashamed  of them.  A Pleasing Talker  ments so dear to the heart of  the Socialist.

There are two transcendent  forces in the world; the one destructive and the other constructive. All men are constantly using these forces. The efforts of  a few are mainly constructive;  the efforts of some are mainly  destructive. But most people  use both forces constantly and  indiscriminately; one day they  are destroying, the next constructing; with one hand they are  building, with the other tearing  down. Hence the chaos, the confusion and discouragement of the  world; hence the age-long delay  in the coming of God's kingdom.  Resist not evil; it will but rebound with the added force of  your attack. Criticise nothing;  by putting forth negative, destructive forces you do but weaken yourself; the mathematically  exact laws of nature will see to  it that you and your cause suffer  to precisely the amount of the  negative force you put in motion.  Least of all should they who  have seen the vision0 and are  working for God and humanity  permit themselves to criticise  those who in their own way are  doing the same work and are inspired by the same high motives.  Let us each be so busy constructing his own edifice that he has  neither time nor inclination to  turn aside and pull down his  brother's building. Rather let us  cheer each brother on to do his  work as God hath given him wisdom. In my Father's house are  many mansions; it takes all sorts  to make a world. Bid all Godspeed. As long as we oppose one  another we are still on the surface of life, we are not dwelling  in the secret place of the Most  High; for if we were, we should  know of a surety that all, in the  eternal purposes of the Infinite,  are working together for good;  and, instead of putting out our  hand to chasten, we should  breathe forth the spirit of love  and benediction, and of the peace  which passeth understanding.  gives strength and nerve  force.
