FROM ONE MAN'S POINT OF VIEW  n  NOW that the chill of winter is near,  the good housewife of many of our  homes is going about the house with  knife-blade and woolen or felt waste filling  every conceivable crack about the doors  and windows where a breath of fresh air  could squeeze through. If the windows  are not nailed down, they are fixed so as  not to be opened. Result: colds and more  colds. When will we learn that' 'colds" are  not ' 'taken"- from exposure to drafts of  fresh air. "Colds" come from within, not  from without. We overfeed, and do not  breath in enough fresh air to enable the  body to get rid of the poisons. Lack of  fresh air in our homes, our churches, our  public schools, and public halls, has caused  and is causing, more tuberculosis and kindred diseases than all other evils combined.  As the soul is withered and intellect paralyzed by feeding spiritually entirely upon  one kind of canned theology, so is the body  ^weakened^and-funetion^^  by forcing into the lungs so much breathed-  over air. We force into the blood through  the lungs the vilest poisons, and then wonder why we "take cold" as soon as the cold  weather comes! The cold weather is not  to blame; it is our stuffy, badly-ventilated  rooms. Sleep out of doors, winter and  summer, and you will never know what a  "cold" is. If it is not convenient for you  to do that, open wide the window of your  sleeping room. You will find that you will  sleep warmer under fewer blankets with the  window open than with it closed. Give the  lungs plenty of fresh air, and don't overfeed and your "cold"-troubles will be.at  an end.  Apropos of the matter of fresh air, the  following excellent article appears in the  Ladies' Home Journal for September. It is  the sanest bit of criticism we have seen  along this line:  "The pastor of a western church recently  conceived the sensible idea that there was  one way by which he might at least encourage attendance in his church: by giving the people fresh, pure air to breathe.  Of course the sexton assurred him "he did  all he could to air the church out before  service": he recited the sexton's usual woes:  what pleased one person didn't please another, and so forth.     "But," said the pastor, "all the same, the air during service  is awful: fresh air I will have and fresh air  lam going to have if I have to take the  ventilation of the church   into  my own  hands."   He called his people and his trustees together, explained the efficiency of  fresh air, and asked for their help to see  that the air in the church was pure and  fresh. What that pastor did was to awaken  the attention of his entire congregation to  a subject to which his  people  had given  little or no thought; he got not only better  air into his church,  but,  moreover, he set  his people thinking  about the benefits of  fresh air in^their homes, and the reports of  four physicians show a marked decline in  colds and illnesses among the members of  that parish!     Now,  that  is practical religion: the kind  of religion   we need in  scores of our churches today which fairly  reek with poisoned and breathed-over air,  jJh&J&sultu)^  fresh ah\ A little more common-sense of  this sort on the part of the pulpit, and the  church will have taken one step toward  making of itself an institution of practical  good with an appeal to men."  WOMEN cannot vote at vestry meetings, was the decision of the Anglican synod now in session at Victoria.  They can, however, still contribute to the  contribution plate and run church fairs.  {{T THINK we should reform the news-  I papers," commented Captain Give  Phillips-Wolley, at the Anglican synod last week, which sounds as congruous  as the proverbial remark of the kettle to  pot. However, if the newspapers fare no  worse than the devil at the hands of the  synod, no immediate alarm need be felt.

We understand  the municipality has contributed  $1,000 to be expended in getting  out a booklet advertising the advantages of the District. It is  surprising how much has been  accomplished by the Enderby  board of trade in the same time.  Mrs. Gus Schultz, of Enderby,  who left on a visit to her parents  near Edmonton, accompanied by  her children, early in the summer,'  has experienced a serious seige of  sickness to., the children, losing  her 4-year-old boy by typhoid.  The other children recovered  from typhoid, only to be stricken  with other sickness. They will  return to Enderby in the spring.

These are two reasons why every  citizen-should be-in-favor^of the  proposition to be submitted at a  public meeting to be held tonight  in the Bell block, of a hospital at  Enderby. There are many reasons stronger than these. Come  to the meeting tonight and hear  them���������������������������also bring your own reasons. Let nobody get the idea  that a few ladies are attempting  to dictate things. No decision  whatever has been reached, but  it was necessary for someone to  take hold and get such information as was necessary to lay before the meeting.  Try it!  The season's business of the  Enderby Fruit & Produce Association is about completed. A  report of the business will be  made later. It will approximate  $18,000. This, in view of the  many obstacles that had to be  overcome the first year, speaks  volumes for the management,  both here and at Revel stoke.  The city voters' list will close  on Nov. 30th, in accordance with  the law of the Province. All  property owners whose names do  not appear on the assessment  roll for the current year should  \ call at the city office and register.  If they neglect to do this they  will   have   only   themselves   to  I blame when they find themselves  without a vote on polling clay.  At the meeting   of   the city  council Saturday night it was reported that the   balance of the  waterworks bonds���������������������������$8,000���������������������������had  been provisionally sold  through  the Bank of Montreal,   at 84.90.  | Aid. ������������������Lawes and Evans were ap-  | pointed to act with the Mayor as  | a court of revision to revise the  I voters' list, the   court   to sit at  17:30 p. m., Dec. 2kt.

On every box of apples that  goes from Enderby in future, the  words���������������������������non-irrigated" should be  printed bold. Non-irrigated fruit  is in greatest demand.  We have not seen apples of  such uniform size and color  grown in the district as have  come this year from Mabel Lake  Valley.  The fall weather has been so  mild at Mara that a 4-year-old  apple tree made a mistake and  is sending forth spring blossoms.  Ed. Haynes is cutting sawlogs  this winter on his homestead up  Mabel Lake Valley. ENDERBY,B. C, November 26, 1908  3  ^v  Interesting Talk on Fruit Growing  v.  .J  A FAIR-SIZED audience attended the lecture of T. A.  Brydon, given last Wednesday evening in K. of P. Hall,  under the auspices of the Spallumcheen Farmer's Institute.  Those present heard a splendid  talk from a thorough, practical  man, and gained much valuable  information. The most discouraging feature about these Institute lectures and demonstrations  is the conspicuous absence of the  men to whom the information  would be of most value. However, as this is the fault of the  farmers themselves, and they are  the direct losers by not having  the information, the indirect  losers���������������������������all who wish to see the  District developed to its highest  and best���������������������������cannot afford to complain. The farmer���������������������������fruit-raiser,  poultry man, stockman��������������������������� whatever branch he may be particu  larly interested in, who is satisfied to produce a No. 2 article  when with a little extra effort  he could make everything No. 1,  is not doing himself or the District justice.  This was the point of Mr. Bry-  don's remarks. Failure in fruit-  raising, 'off years", and unmarketable fruit, were to him j  impossible to the producer who  would observe the science of |  life, in the preparation of the  soil and care of the trees. First,  came, the matter .of drainage,  then plant food, then pruning,  then thinning out the fruit, and  last but not least, the picking,  packing and marketing of the  fruit. The picking, packing and  marketing, while recognized in  its importance, is only secondary j  in scientific fruit raising. It is  easy enough to pick, pack and  sell the fruit, if you produce only  No. 1 fruit. You can't pack No.  2's in with your No. l's if you  haven't the No. 2's. It was Mr.  Brydon's purpose to show that  with the proper preparation of  the soil, and proper feeding of  the trees, correct pruning, spraying and thinning, it was possible  to bring the per centage of culls  so low as to be out of the consideration.  Briefly, Mr. Brydon's advice  was, first, underdrainage, even  on the high ground. Then, plant  trees about 22 feet apart. For the  first two years a strip 4 feet wide  on each side of the trees should  be clean cultivated, the balance -  of the space should be planted to  peas, oats, and clover, the latter  for a cover crop. He advocated  a hoe crop, potatoes and roots,  for a second crop. Vetch or rye  sown every fall and plowed under  in the spring, will provide the  necessary food to the soil to make  sturdy trees. Clean cultivation  about the trees was necessary at  all times. This, he said, kept a  powdered surface and prevented  Graniteware  Tinware  Ranges  Stoves  Paints  Oils  Varnishes  Plumbing  Tinsmithing  Heatinu  Roofing  Sheet Metal work in all  its branches  The Goods are the latest and best; the prices are right; we will treat you right  Fulton's Hardware, Tin and Plumbing Works  CLIFF STREET ENDERBY, B.

Geo. R. Lawes; sec.-treas., V. C.  Brimacombe; executive committee, Miss Howe, A. E. Taylor,  R. R. Gibbs, Geo. R. Lawes, and  V. C. Brimacombe.  The new club has been fortunate in securing by lease the  grounds just back of St. George's  church, which have been suitably  fenced, and are now being put in  condition for the coming season.  It is the intention to have, if possible, two excellent grass courts  ready for play on May 1st.  It is to be hoped that the club  will not want for members. Already a number of names have  been enrolled, and many others  have signified their intention of  becoming members before the  season opens. It is earnestly requested that those interested will  present their names for membership as early as possible to Mr.  Brimacombe, secretary-treasurer.  The membership fees are as  follows: Men players, $5; lady  players, $2.50; non-playing men  members, $2; non-playing lady  members, $1; family of three  -pla-yi-ng-membersr$-7-50reae-h=-ad--  ditional member of same family,  $1.

One way produces evenly broiled meat and  evenly toasted bread without taxing the  patience of the housewife. This way is represented by "Sask-alta" Range. The reason:  "Sask-alta" Range has an Automatic Lift Top  (Patented) in addition to regular  Broiler Door; and this team works  for the operator instead of making  her work.  Thoughts from '' Under the Pines''  A FRIEND   writes    from   an  eastern state, asking how to  succeed in a certain undertaking.  We do not conduct a bureau of  success, nor do we   pretend to  make hair grow on bald heads,  or tell our readers how to get rich  for ten cents.     But  there   is a  way to do things, right; and this  way, persisted in, brings success  in any calling.    Briefly, here it is:  Be sincere.     Sincerity   bottoms  all.    The individual   that is not  sincere in his life cannot expect to  succeed long in anything.    Next,  know your purpose; then, believe  in yourself,   and   be   absolutely  true to yourself and the man by  your side.     Sincerity   tries the  man.    It is much easier to be a  nonentity than a strong, vitalized  and' vitalizing . human pulsating  'man.    The nonentity may have  all the faculties that go to make  the man, but he does not develop  them; he does not develop them  because to do so requires work.  But the sincere man is so vitally  interested in his mission that he  forgets himself in his work and  ���������������������������he succeeds.  Succeed? He can  not run fast enough to keep out  of the way of success !  LIFE does not afford us the  opportunities we think we  ought to have for giving  expression to the best in us. We  hold back continually the thing  which would bring us most good  to express. And we lose the best  our friends and the world has for  us by not speaking the  love we  have, Love_���������������������������unexpressed_.dies.-  To keep it, we must use it. In  using it, we give it; and in giving  we gain.  Y  The "Sask-alta" Way  Another way produces  unevenly broiled meat and  unevenly toasted bread  and taxes the patience of  the housewife.

The verdict  condemns the policy on the  Japanese immigration question which it was admitted  has been dictated in the interests of the British empire,  and which was followed at  the express desire, if not the  direction, of the imperial  authorities.. The verdict in  addition condemns Sir Wilfrid Laurier for acting upon  the recommendation of the  provincial conference in settling the provincial subsides  question."  So.said Hon. Walter Scott,  premier of Saskatchewan, on  his return to Winnipeg direct from two weeks' campaigning iri Yale-Cariboo.  Commenting on Mr. Scott's  utterances, Bruce in Saturday Sunsetstritelv says:  '"When Hon.

The Dominion Government  deceived Parliament by saying it had written assurances  that immigration would be  limited by the Japanese Government.

I  "These prices may seem;  high, but they are not prices  on a boom basis. As a rule,  only one. who appreciates the  possibilities of fruit culture  will pay these prices, and  when it comes to the top-  notch sales, they are usually  mada to persons living in the  community, who are acquainted with the land and its possibilities.  /  I.C.S.
