FROM ONE MAN'S POINT OF VIEW  NOW that the evangelistic services are  at an end in Enderby,  I trust that I  may be permitted to discuss the objectionable feature of modern revivalism  without being accused of   ' 'injuring the  cause/' Three weeks ago I said: "Revivalism is like most of the modern isms: it has  very much of the fake about it."   Good  orthodox friends who should be able to  read a sentence as it is written, accused  me  of saying,   "revivalism is a  fake."  What was said of revivalism then was said  with a view of bringing prominently forward the evils that overwrought men bring  into a good cause either from love of gain  or love of personal power.     An evangelist  is a preacher with emotion plus���������������������������a man, as  good and as bad as most men.     He is a  worthy citizen, so long as he conducts his  business as worthily and as sanely as other  men conduct their's.   A steeple is not more  holy than a smoke-stack.     The merchant  ^and^manufacturer^and^the���������������������������man-w4th-piek-  and shovel are workers in the divine plan  as much as the preacher, and in some .instances more. The real test is not credal.  Usefulness in life's service is the real test.  To separate a man's religion from his work  is a monstrous error. To teach that we  can serve God independent of and apart  from our service of men here and now, is  contrary to the teachings of Christ, and of  every sane man's honest convictions.  The evangelist has his place. He helps  to work up aesthetical brain storms, and  these seem to be necessary to some people  periodically. When times are hard the  evangelist waxes warm. He points the  individual away from this life by promising  a surfeit in Paradise. When the evangelist is gone the individual finds   that he  from  personal experience, once said: "I  would rather live next door to a pest-house  than to some church members.    It is not  that they do not hold orthoddx   creeds.  They are  evangel istical   and   read their  Bibles daily.    But they lack the spirit of  Christ.    The faults and failures of others  are targets for their attacks.    The smell of  scandal is to them   as   the   perfumes of  Araby the blest.   Blind to the  needs of  humanity and deaf to the cry of the world's  pain, they go on calling themselves Christians, and the world looking on condemns,  not the loveless character, but Christianity!  Because the  church  has   tolerated such  things, because men and women of unloving spirit, living for self,  have been permitted to kneel at her altars and sit in her  chief seats, while men with hearts filled  with love and pity have been turned away,  because they  could  not  pronounce some  human shibboleth���������������������������because of this, thousands of men are turning from the church."  This from a D. D. is a severe arraignment.  It serves to show what the modernly "converted" individual will find on awakening  from his aesthetic intoxication   and gets  baclrttrre-diife.   must come back to this life,  and must live  in the Here and Now.     Then comes the  The error is in the evangelist. His entire  intent is to kill in the man his sense of self-  reliance��������������������������� to make him think less of himself,  and even have a scorn and contempt for his  natural instincts.   And he is given .in.exchange-  a superstition to lean upon.    The worst harm you  can do your neighbor is to make  him doubt himself.   The evangelist assumes that man is born a  failure and then by aesthetic bull con attempts to  prove it.    Asa matter of fact,   God is in every  man; and man's responsibility���������������������������and  his only responsibility-is to express in a calm, sane, natural  way, in his home life, business life, on the street,  in the office, the working of the God within.   The  God men seek comes from  within.     He   is not  found by diverting men  from the ills of this life  to the supposed joys of another.     He is found in  standing by that which we think is true, and doing one's work here and now as if there never  was and never would be a better heaven than this.  To forsake one's work to indulge religious emotions is as bad as to forsake one's work to indulge  sexual emotions. ? WALKER'S WEEKLY,  XX  x__x  MR.

As a  prelude to his address, speeches  were made by Chairman Fortune,  Mr. Rogers and Geo. Bell. Mr.  Rogers and Mayor Bell paved the  way for Mr. Ross' remarks on  Indian reserves and the V., V. &  E. charter. Both speakers were  satisfied with Mr. Ross and declared he should receive the support of the district. Mr. Bell said  he had come to the meeting "on  the fence," so to speak,  open to  Kootenay districts,  by pointing  to the vast territory up in Alaska  better than other people.

In opening his remarks Mr.  Ross took up the matter of Indian reserves. He said the Dominion government had repeatedly endeavored to force a settlement with the Provincial government whereby the unused lands  could be opened to the white man  but the Provincial government  would not listen to it. As the  matter stands, the Province has  control of the situation. When  the Dominion got the land from  issues instead of Dominion, and  his argument was directed at the  McBride government rather than  in elucidation of his own, and as  a vote getter or confidence builder  his address was a blanket. At  the conclusion of his remarks Mr.  Ross moved a vote of thanks to  and, therefore sought the advantage which comes from the undue influence of example upon the  indeterminate. The hope in the  game is that if the government,  which was supposed stronger in  other constituencies, is sustained,  the weakling voters of Yale-Cariboo will decide they had better  fall in line with the crowd.

The cent belt was evidently full of a lot of pikers  who would sell their country  for a mess of porridge.   The  hypnotic influence of Laurier  and the church upon the pea-  soupers, the appeal to  the  avarice  of the  fish-eaters,  and the general stupidity of  the Rubes in Ontario enabled  the Grits to once more stake  the dominion for the benefit  of themselves  and foreign  capitalists.   What a lunch they  will have in the next five years,  while the people will scramble  under the table for the crumbs.  Verily, brethren, this is a wicked  world.

Like a  bright star in a dark sky British  Columbia shone last Monday and  it will continue to shine until we  have better terms and the brown  meeting. A party of Ehderbyites  accompanied Mr. Oliver to Mara,  driving up through mud and rain,  and when they go there the cupboard was bare,   with no lights  and no fire in  the school house.  However, in half an hour or two  lanterns were noticed moving in  the direction of the school house,  and by-and-by a quorum of lanterns with men attached gathered  and   business   proceeded.     Mr.  Oliver isn't a   quitter, though.  He quietly met the situation by  forgetting himself in answering  the   questions  propounded.   He  remarked on the way home that  he thought the country needed a  great deal of saving.  The Proposition in a Nut-Shell  stain is washed away from this  beautiful land."  What Did It Mean?  Men accustomed to playing the  game of politics are wondering  what bright campaign manager  booked the Hon. Frank Oliver for  the meeting at Mara school house  last Saturday night. For the  minister of the interior to lose  two days' valuable time to address an audience that couldn't  possibly run over 50 and when it  came to a show-down, didn't  number 15, is one of the strange  things of the campaign. At Mara  Mr. Oliver was compelled to devote the evening to answering  a list of question proposed by the  The   Vancouver Province hits  the nail  squarely   on   the head  when it says: "On Monday night  last,  when Mr.   W. W.   B. Mc-  Innes realized that he had been  beaten in the election, he indulged  in some reflections which are peculiar    to   party men   in    the  position   in   which    he   found  himself.       It    was     not     so  much for himself that he grieved  as for Vancouver.    ;   .    .    This  lamentation which has since been  echoed by other members of the  Liberal party, is an appeal to the  basest sentiments   of  the community.    Were we to be guided  ^y^e^rincipl^whicjritmnlfe^t^  we would never be influenced in  our political conduct by anything  higher than the  thought of our  immediate material gain.    .    .   .  However, there is another way  of regarding this matter, and one  which justifies the people of Vancouver even from the standpoint  of their immediate material interests in opposing the Laurier |  government and sending an opposition member to Ottawa.     As  we know, Sir Wilfrid Laurier and  his administration are opposed to  the views of the people of this  province   on   all   the important  questions affecting the interests  of this province  with  which the  federal government has to deal.  This, in itself, should be sufficient  to determine us to express our  disapproval of the policy of his  government.    But let us ask Mr.  Mclnnes what benefit this province, or any constituency in this  province, secured by having in  the last parliament  a solid Liberal representation ?   .    .   When  any important question affecting  the interests of British Columbia  came before parliament they acted as they did when the Japanese treaty came up for ratification���������������������������they were silent. That was  the policy of the Liberal representation of British Columbia in  the last parliament���������������������������a policy of  silence by which the best interests of the province   were betrayed.    ...    But it will not  be continued now.    The interests  of this province will  be looked  after.    The government will not  be allowed to pass the word about  to   the   members   from   British  Columbia instructing them to refrain from discussion when matters affecting this province come  before the House.   The policy of  the next five years will be a policy of publicity. .   .   There will  be no  railroading  of measures  through the House; no suppression of discussion."  What Did They Get ?'  What did Bill"G^llagher, who  is a good fellow, get for the people of Kootenay district? Every  time the people of that district  wanted anything that was of real  advantage to them   they had to  send a delegation to   Ottawa to  get it.    What did  Duncan Ross,  who is a good fellow, get for the  people_ofz Yale-Cariboo-d is tri ct ?  He got the V., V & E.   charter  for James J.   Hill of St. Paul,  Minnesota.     What did  William  Sloan, who is a good fellow, get  for the   people   of Comox-Atlin  district?   He got a chance to deliver an oration on ' 'Pelagic Sealing in the North Pacific Ocean"  and get   it   distributed  through  the mails for nothing,    What did  Bob Macpherson,   who is a good  fellow, get for the people of Vancouver?   He got a life  job for  himself as postmaster of that city.  Are not the above  nice records  for the people of Kootenay, Yale-  Cariboo, Comox-Atlin and Vancouver to look back at.���������������������������Empire. WALKER'S WEEKLY,  A SOLILOQUY BY THE PARSON OF WORKADAY  What's the use of saying  "What's the Use?"  TRY!  I WAS coming up the street  Monday morning when a  friend passed this thought  to me. I had been looking  for it, though I was unconscious of it. In a moment it  opened before me a field of  thought I had barely entered.  There came before me the  obstacles we daily roll up before us to bar our progress,  as individuals and as a community. "What's the use of  saying hvhat's the use': Try!  TRY ! Ye, gods! if we only  would ! What a change we  could bring about! How  many of the impossibles  would become possibles!  How many pipe dreams  would become fair pictures  of the actual! There came  before me a mental picture  of what is now the Mack  farm, on the river bank south  of town. A picture of what  it used to be was followed by  pictures of what it is now,  and a picture of what it is  gomgHo-be4n-the4u-feurer-yT  saw the Strickland home in  the woods five years ago,  then a picture of the clearings now in orchard south of  town, and J^  tureH~'aga^  will make them, laden with  luscious fruits. I saw the  magnificent Hazelmere Farm  with its snake fences of a  few years ago now cutting  straight and true through the  vast fields of green, and I  could but marvel at the  beauty of the landscape as  the plans of the owner are  given fuller expression.  What's the use of saying  'What's the Use'! TRY!* As  I   read   and   re-read   these  words my mind   formed a  picture of Enderby, its hills  and valleys, their past, present and future.     The hills  that have been so long only  beautiful,   are   now   being  cleared and the benches put  into fruit.    The future pictures these hills cut up into  orchards,  with comfortable  homes nestling in the groves  of   birch and   pine,   cotton  woods and   alders. #   There  comes before me a picture of  the dense  forests of a few  years ago being replaced by j  fruit orchards and vegetable |  gardens up   and down the |  valley of Mabel Lake.   We j  repeat the word,   try! try!'  try! and see the log cabin  replaced by frame buildings,  with the delightful gardens  of foliage and bloom.     Try!  And the great thicket dis  appears, and out of the face  of the ugly rocky cliff a  home appears. Mountains  are brought low and low  lands high.  What's the use of saying  'What's the Use! TRY! The  streets and the homes lose  their shabby dress and assume one of beauty and  style. Homes like the Gar-  dom residence and that of  Robt. Peel, and a dozen  others, spring into view  out of a tangle of undergrowth, and we see the hillside spread out in terraced  lawns. Try! And out of a  babbling of noises we see  hospitals grow, and care for  the sick provided. Try! But  what's the use of saying,  'what's the use! try! dimmit,  TRY!  IT PAYS !

Five Enderby cases are booked  for the Vernon hospital this  month, which means, roughly,  $600 or $700 transfered from Enderby to Vernon. Thus it goes.

C, November 5, 1908  The services of Dr. Bell of Winnipeg will be secured as judge,  and all birds be judged by  American score-card rules. Dr.  Bell is a leading poultry judge of  Canada, judging this year at  New Westminster and Calgary.  Robert Waddell is planing to  bring the best the world can produce in poultry to the Hazelmere  Ranch. He is bringing from  England a pen of the finest Black  Minorcas and a pen of first-prize  White Wryandottes. These will  be the start of what he hopes to  make as fine a poultry yard as  can be found in Canada. He has  hatchers and brooders for 1000  chick, and is bringing an Old  Country poultry expert to handle  his pens.  How litlle Enderby people know  about the magnitude of the business carried on by the Columbia  Flouring Mills of Enderby. The  flour shipments of this company  to the Orient have long eclipsed  all other Canadian mills, and now  the Enderby company is establishing a market in the United  Kingdom. The first consignment  of Canadian flour that has ever  left the Pacific Coast for England  will leave Vancouver this week  on the ss. Ouessant. The flour  is one of the Columbia Flouring  Mills best brands and goes to a  new market.  A yearly grant of $500 is given  by the Provincial government to  a public hospital that can show  365 days' treatment in the year.  With this for a starter, and say  $10 a year for medical treatment  in case of sickness from our business men and laborers residing in  town, the ladies having in hand  the Enderby hospital project  should find no difficulty in providing for its up-keep.  J. S. Johnstone presented us  with a photo of the cement-block  residence he erected at Salmon  Arm for John Dolan. It is a two-  story structure, 18 feet above the  basement. Twenty-four hundred blocks were used in its construction, requiring just seven  weeks to cast the blocks and lay  them. In the late catastrophy at  Fernie cement-block buildings  were given a severe test. A report says: ' In the fire-swept district, which includes all the business portion of the town, there  are standing just three business  blocks and these are built of concrete blocks. Concrete seems to  have much better resisting qualities against heat than brick, as  all the brick buildings were  burned." For further particulars see Mr. Johnstone.

The great difficulty in .most manufacturing businesses is the proper utilization of byproducts. Now, separated  milk in creameries is practically a  waste material. It fetches on the "average a price of a penny per gallon. It  can only be sold in the immediate  neighborhorj oi! the creameries, as carriage to a distance is not possible at  such a price.  The process referred to gets rid of  practically the whole of the water contained in the milk, and the residue of  milk powder amounts to only about one-  tenth of the weight of the milk. Even  were it possible to send the separated  milk economically. to a distance the  heavy cost of the packages required  would be a very serious drag on the  business! But the milk powder %n.y be  forwarded in any ordinary light commercial package that can stand the  ^strain of a railway journey.  For wholesale purposes it may be  packed iu bags. like flour, at practically no cost whatever. The trade"being  a perfectly practical one, the next'question is, What are the possibilities of  finding a successful market for the  product? And it seems to us that if  milk powder is properly placed on the  market it will find innumerable profitable outlets. It will be used in enormous quantities by biscuit manufacturers and by bakers and confectioners  to a large extent in the manufacture  of milk bread, cakes and pastry of  various sorts. . As it .will keep for any  J_ength-i_o.fUtime,^it^-W-il.Uob-v40us]y--be-in  valuable on board ship.  Handling the Boar.  The boar should have plenty of exercise. This is pm/mctive of well developed muscles and general thrift.  Soundness of reproductive organs will  usually follow. During "the breeding  season it will not bo possible for him  to get the same amount of exercise,  and accordingly cure must be taken  that his energies are not wasted by unnecessary service. Careful feeding  will do much !<> counteract this. It  must always be remembered that the  drains on a boar at this time are severe, especially if tidy or sixty sows  are served. This will require ample  feed, with as much exercise as possible and careful treatment. A fully matured boar should not serve more than  two sows daily, preferably one in the  morning and one in the afternoon. In  this way he can serve fifty or sixty in  a season without difficulty.���������������������������George M.  Rommel.  Moffet'  s  est  Is the king of bread flours.

A hasty search along the train was  made, without effect, and then attention was called to two squaws who  were rapidly moving off across the  prairie.

Drenching    Is    Dangerous   and    Often  Proves  Fatal, Says a Veterinarian.  Dr. David Roberts, Wisconsin state  veterinarian, gives this advice:  Perhaps,the best way of demonstrating the danger of drenching cattle is  to advise the reader������������������to throwr back his  head as far as possible and attempt to  swallow. This you will find to be a  diflicult task, and you will find it more  diflicult and almost impossible to swallow with the mouth open. It is for  this reason that drenching cattle is a  dangerous practice. If a cow's head be  raised as high as possible and her  mouth kept open by the drenching bottle or horn a portion of the liquid is  very apt to pass dowu the windpipe  into the lungs, sometimes causing instant death by smothering, at other  times causing death to follow in a  few days from'-congestion or inflammation of the lungs  Give all cattle their medicine hypo-1  dermically or iu feed. If they refuse  feed give, it dry on. the tongue. The  proper method of giving a cow medicine is to stand on the right side of  the cow, placing the left arm around  the nose and at ihe same time opening her mouth, an I with a spoon in the  right hand place the medicine, which  should be in a powdered form, back on  the tongue. She can then swallow  with safety.  A Two Feed Rack.  A New York d:.i:yinan has a hiy and  grain rack for cows which, he says, is  a great help when these two feeds are  given  at  the same  time.

Walker's Weekly: Sir:  It is not a new thing to see liquor  men and church men arm-in-arm  in politics. In Enderby, I must  say, we have an example of it. I  am interested in the movement  the churches are making in the  interest of temperance, but I do  not feel that we can accomplish  anything, when I see the church  leaders using their position to  advance the interests of a candidate who is known to be the  candidate of the liquor party,  and has always worked in the  interest of the liquor men. It  is time our church leaders were  serving one master or the other,  and not straddle from one to the  other, ready to sit upon the one  that promises them personal advancement.

Why hasn't the man the pluck to  put his name to his letter? Why  doesn't he tell the merchants  personally what more he wants  for his money? He tells us he is  equidistant from Enderby and  Armstrong, but prefers to come  to Enderby. Why? Evidently  Enderby merchants are not as  black as .he would paint them.  "This half holiday is all right in  the summer time," he says. Let  us thank him for this crumb of  comfort, but if there be any logic  in his argument at all he will  doubtless cavil at the autocratic  merchant taking either food,  drink or sleep except "in the  summer time.'' I take it upon  myself, as an individual, not as  spokesman for or defender of the  wicked merchant, to accuse your  correspondent of the rankest  kind of selfishness. He, pet of  the gods, can take a holiday  practically when it suits him, and  takes it.    ...  If "Deep Creek" will believe  me, it may help him to understand why some merchants close  their stores on Wednesday afternoons even after the "summer  time."     A   merchant,   and his  clerks, are human beings, and a  human being needs recreation to  enable him to conduct his business just as much as he needs  ordinary business acumen. For  the convenience of his customers  he0endeavors to take it on some  clay of the week least likely to  interfere with their various pursuits, in this case on Wednesday,  and I think that any man with a  spark of humanity in him will  agree with me that "Deep  Creek" has very little to kick at  after all.
