C., March 11, 1909  AND      WALKER'S      WEEKLY  Vol.4 2;._To. 2; Whole No. 54.  _?r^?-������������������_  test's;  Petitioning the Government to Help  THE Provincial Government  has spent large sums of  money to advertise the fruit possibilities of the province. Our  great resources have been made  known wherever it has been apparent an attentive ear was  listening.. Hundreds of thousands of dollars have" been spent  here in developing the fruit industry, and the output of our  orchards has assumed large proportions.  The Government cannot now  a fiord to neglect the industry; it  ca inot afford to withhold its aid  ai    ie one point where it is most  n. ;ded���������������������������it must assist in the establishment of permanent market facilities, .even if .for a few  years it has to pay an agent to  superintend the. handling of the  , produce by the Exchanges.   The  Government-cannot .afford now  *<��������������������������������������������� leave our farmers arid fruit  ���������������������������- users at the  tender mercy of  orporate greed on one hand, and  che grasping commission men on  the other.    Some  system must  be adopted to stop the cut-throat  business and to enable the producers to cut loose from the'joint  stock companies, which simply  bleed the underdog for the man  . on top.  The co-operative system is the  system that undoubtedly could be  made to give the best results. It  has been tried the  past year or  .two_with not very _ satisfactory  pose of the Government to formulate some plan looking to the  readjustment^ the land conditions. Chief Edward appeared  before the commissioner and, on  behalf of his people, asked for  an Indian school to be established  on the Indian reserve. Mr. Mc-  Dougald will visit all of the Indian reservations in the Valley.  ^ | given to F. V. Moffet the contract to install 40 lights. An  eleven-room addition is to be  added to the hotel this spring to  accommodate the increasing  traffic.  Hotel Improvements at-Sicamoiis  L. E.

He  is installing a 13.5 kilowatt direct  current dynamo, and a 4-horse-  powercgasoline engine,  and has  Word was received ~'on Wednesday that the Department at  Victoria had decided to use only  B. C. flour ifi the provincial  asylums, the Vancouver mill to  supply Westminster- and the  Enderby mill to supply Vernon.  As the Westminster institution  uses 600 barrels to Vernon's 50  barrels, it looks like discrimination. The Board of Trade at once  wired Hon. Price Ellison to this  effect, and asked for an equitable  division of orders between all the  mills of the Province, or that the  whole be thrown open to tender.  zxxz.  ixx:  Flour from  Enderby to Liverpool  ���������������������������\  SHIPPING flour.from Enderby  to Liverpool by way of Vancouver, is now an assurred'thing.  On November 5th a shipload of  flour from the Enderby mill sailed  from Vancouver booked for Liverpool; It was the first shipment  of flour to leave the Pacific Coast  of| Canada for a U. K. port^and  much interest was felt in the  outcome. A few days ago a  letter was. received by" the  Columbia Flouring Mills Co. from  the Liverpool house, stating that  the shipment had arrived in very  satisfactory condition, and establishing a permanent trade for  flour of this,grade!'/  In- the manufacture* of' flour  there are two grades obtained  \  WALKER'S  WEE ELY  P������������������Wbh������������������d ������������������T������������������rr Thursday at Enderbr. the Gate-Way of tha famaut Okanagan, Land of the Bij Canadian Red Apple and the California ������������������f Cawada  V"  Entered in the Post Office at Enderby, B.

The  system, therefore, has not had a  fair trial; the co-operators themselves were the system's worst  enemies.  What the outcome will be is  yet to be seen. Petitions are in  circulation in the producing sections of the province, asking the  government to take the supervision of the Exchanges, and it  is not unlikely that next season  will see the business under government supervision,   and   the  markets brought nearer the man  who has something to sell.  I       Investigating Indian Affairs  Rev. John McDougald, 49 years  a missionary working amongst  the Iiidians and in frontier comT  munities, spent a few 'days in  Enderby this week, investigating  for the Dominion government the  condition of the reservation Indians, and more particularly the  ���������������������������f amount of land held by the Indians.    It apparently is the pur-  SOMEBODY has said that in order to  recognize a big man, you must be one.  I believe this is absolutely true. When  _Miss-Carmen-wrote-his-ode-on=the^corona-  tion of King Edward, ���������������������������one of marvelous  beauty and strength, there wasn't a Canadian editor to whom the poem was submitted big enough to grasp the beauty of  it, and the writer had to peddle his wares  in the United'States. . It was snapped up  by the Saturday Evening Post, if my memory serves me right, and-published as its  leader. So lavish were the critics in their  praise of the poem, that our Canadian publishers wakened up to the fact that they  had lost a good thing, and some of them  went so far as to reproduce a few of the  verses that seemed to have the most jingle,  leaving out, of course, the heart of it.  When Gilbert Parker was in Canada, lie  was thought to be a very ordinary individual and we doubt not that even today in  and about his Camden home there are  those who wisely shake their heads and  ask: "Parker, Parker: why isn't he the  carpenter's son? Can any good come out of  Nazareth?"  We Canadians are a stupid lot. We permit our good things to go from us, or die  for the want of nourishment. We are  strong on following, but short on leading.  We lack the initiative; and we knock anyr  one of the iniative spirit. There is our old  friend, R. T. Lowery; & humorist of the  rarest quality, and yet, because he has or  hasn't religious views untrammeled by the  priest, we taboo him and keep his literature  out of our mail sacks.    The fact that the  Colonel can give most of our high priests  aces and spades and beat them to glory in  innate goodness, has nothing to do with it.  We damn him because' he doesn't think  as we do, and\ that's the end. o'it. He  won't let us put a plumb-bob on his nose,  and we get mad.  In political life we. see the same narrow  spirit prevailing against Joe Martin.' He  is the most abused man in Cariada, and yet  he has done most for her. He, like many  another big soul, is leaving the colonial atmosphere to take up life where big men  Jive. Of his going, "Bruce" says: '/Neither  ^VaTTcouverrwhereiie^has^lived-for^eleven-  years, nor British Columbia in whose interests he has fought against graft and Asiatic immigration, nor Manitoba to which he  rendered his greatest public service by freeing it from a railroad monopoly and by  fighting against the curse of a dual language and separate schools; nor the Liberal  party, once his own, which has for nearly  13 years enjoyed the sweets of office secured upon an issue raised by him���������������������������neither  city, provinces, country, nor party have the  slightest claim upon the gratitude nor sense  of public duty of Joseph Martin. It'is a  bitter commentary upon the politicaljmor-  ality of Canada. By one and all his'ser-  vices have been forgotten, his ^efforts  spurned and the man treated with contumely. x  "Joseph Martin has fought for principle, not  merely an abstract or popular ideal, but for the  practical application of what he believed to be  right. Therein he demonstrated to all who will  read, as plainly as a pikestaff, his inherent honesty. . He could no more frame a phrase which  did not express his actual opinion and intentions  than he could support a principle he believed to  be wrong. That is perhaps one of the reasons  why he was "impossible" as a factor in party,  politics. He could not temporise, he would not  compromise on a vital principle, he could not be  "got at" by any extraneous influence. He went  straight to the goal and was blind to all other considerations than those involved in establishing  the principles he fought for.",  A higher tribute was never paid to the  man than this by the Saturday Sunset.  from the  same  wheat-as- it isv '.  passing' through the mill, No:-if ",/'  and No. 2.

And .that  would have been a pity because he was  wearing while buckskin hoots, and salt  wafer isn't good for buckskin. lie didn't  seeir. a bit as'though he intended to get  up, and that was why it occurred to me  that there was only one thing to be done,  [ must waken him myself.  I was sitting at the top o.f the cliff  and near Dunottar Castle, and he was  lying on the shore far below me, with  his feet towards the. sea and his hands  clasped below his head. I had noticed  him lying there as .1. was walking towards the castle, and because I had  nothing else to do, and it was such a  joiiy evening for sitting still .1���������������������������well, I'  sat still, ami looked at him and-thought  silly Lh'ouglits to myself.  1   couldn't  see   his   face,  clearly,   of  .course, Imt the little ]  did see. looked  awfully  nice  and awfully brown.    And  then  when  I   had  thought   of  this  for  aliout the twentieth time 1 suddenly noticed that the waves had almost reached  him. so 1 jumped to my feet and scrambled down tli_ bank as fast as T could.  I almost ran across the shingle.   I hoped  that   the   noiisc   1  made   might   waken  him.   but   he   never   moved.     When     1  reached his side and saw hi.s face I nearly  cried out. for I knew the face, had seen  it often and often on a photograph, and  now and then., I suppose, iu my dreams  as well.    For a moment J  wondered if  there  could  be two  such   faces  in  the  world, and next, I. called myself a little  fool.   There never was another face like  that since the world began.  The waves were coming'nearer now���������������������������  one almost touched his boots���������������������������so I  coughed, thinking that that would waken him. Jhit he didn't hear. With a  de.-iperate effort I said, "Wake up,  please," and it sounded so silly that 1  laughed, and bending over liim shook his  shoulder a lit tic.  .lie gave a sort of sigh, stretched out  his arms, half opened his eyes, and sat  up and gazed at me. "Peggy!" he murmured sleepily, 'Til bet my last roupec  I nodded. "Yes,"..I murmured, shaking his hand, "yes, I'm Peggy."  "Well," he remarked, " contentedly,  "that's all right, and we're introduced  now. We're not only introduced���������������������������we're  old friends."  "Yes���������������������������yes, I suppose we are." And  then I drew my hand out of his, not  because I -particularly' wanted to, but  because I thought it was the proper  thing to do.    So it was.  We walked up the stony shore until  we came to a big flat rock under the  cliff, and then we. sat down. "Fancy  meeting you���������������������������like this," J said, slowly.  I was rather bewildered at  it all.  "Yes," he answered, "it's  funny, and  yet it's rather nice, too."  "What's rather nice, please?"  "Oh, meeting you here;   in  this  sort  of unexpected, informal way.   It's���������������������������it's  quite romantic."  I said nothing.  "1 said it was quite romantic," he repeated, in an injured tone.  1 looked out to sea. "1 know," 1 replied. ���������������������������'! heard you. liut 1 don't see  that there's much romance about it.  Especially after Ceylon.

Jf there  is  any  romance iu  Ceylon,  it  has  got  there within the lust six weeks."  J smiled at him. There didn't seem  to be anything' else to do. Then, "And  how did you know me?" J asked.  Jfe seemed surprised. "How did I.  know you! Good gracious me! I've  known you for a.ges"!

So I jumped off the rock aud  stood looking down at him. "Perhaps, perhaps," I echoed, gaily. "But now J must  be going home, Mr. Kennedy. Are you  coming.?"  He nodded gravely, and next minuU  we were clambering up the side of the  cliff. I put my hand on n boulder to  steady myself once and my bangle slipped open a little and dropped a little way  down the cliff.  I was going back for it, but a voice  below me cried, "You go on, I'll get the  bangle." So 1 clambered up by myself,  and waited for him at the top of the  cliff.   I hadn't to wait long.  He came up to where L was Landing,  and 1 noticed that his face was all flushed and smiling. "Look!" he said," "and  don't blame me. It opened of its own accord."  "Then-he held out the bangle.

Do not cat hurriedly,  and thoroughly masticate the food.  If your habits are sedentary, take a  moderate amount of exercise before  retiring and immediately upon arising. Do not use strong cathartic  pills, many of which aTe advertised  as sure cures, but in reality do injury by weakening the system. If  you find it necessary to use any laxative, stick to the old-fashioned vegetable mixture, viz.: Fluid Extract  Cascara, J/_ oz.; Compound Syrup of  Jihubarb, .1. oz.; Pluid Extract Car-  riana Compound, 1 . oz.; Compound  Syr.up Sarsaparilla, 5  oz.  Take one teaspoonful after each  meal and at bedtime.  This acts in a gentle, natural way,  and is free from the weakening effects of strong,purgatives.  The ingredients can bo bought  separate]}-, and anyone can mix them  at home. This information will be  of benefit to our readers, and ia  worth keeping.

"Busting 'er Up and Starting  Over Again."  IF the farmers of the Okanagan do not show more  tenacity of purpose,  and a  clearer conception of business  they will soon be recognized  as a bunch of chubbers.   It  is to be greatly deplored that  the history of the many exchanges  organized  by  the  farmers of the  Valley has  been a succession of failures.  Across  the  door  of every  farmers exchange that has  operated in" the Valley may  now be written the word:  "Defunct."    And in every  case the farmers have lost  heavily. ��������������������������� One after another  the exchanges have gone out  of business owing large sums  of money to the farmers for  their produce.    We doubt if  there is another district in  the Dominion that has lost  so much through bad management,   and,   yet, whose  farmers are so well off.  The  phenomenal fertility of the  Okanagan soil, and its balmy  climate  makes living  here  very easy���������������������������too easy, in fact,  for the farmers' own good.  If they have not been deliberately robbed by the men in  whose    hands    they  have  placed their business, their  produce has been sold to irresponsible  agents  and they  fa'iled to sret the monev.  . These are unpleasant; facts,  but we all know they are  true. What are we to do  about it?  The great trouble we have  noticed is in the farmers  themselves. They are continually throwing up the  sponge and calling quits.  The tendency is, as one of  them put it at the exchange  meeting in Enderby last Saturday, to "bust 'er up an'  start over again." lithe  average businessman were to  adopt the same tactics, he  would-not=last=a-yea_.  again" is always an expensive one.  "Busting /er up and starting over again" is expensive  business. If our level-headed  farmers cannot keep down  this ' 'bust ''er up" spirit in  their organization, and meet  embarrassing circumstances  in the same thoughtful business-like way that businessmen meet theirs, they cannot hope to make head. It  requires much perseverance  and patience to put any kind  of a business enterprise upon  its feet; and many mistakes  and much overcoming. No  business enterprise was ever  put upon its feet in any other  way. By persevering in  spite of failures victories  worth while are won..  These repeated instances  of the farmers throwing up  their hands and going down  makes it more apparent than  ever that the Provincial Government, in self-protection,  must take in hand the supervision of the marketing of  the produce of the Province.  The example of Ontario in  dealing with the problem of  marketing last year should  be followed here. A competent man, paid, by the  Province, and stationed at  the point of distribution, to  inspect all  produce,  would  overcome much of the difficulty now experienced. But  the building-up of a market  depends upon the farmers  themselves. The operation  of a permanent, reliable and  dependable exchange is the  first essential. There must  be co-oper,'ationj and a well-  defined business policy adopted. Comin'g up to-day and  going down to-morrow is not  calculated to inspire confidence. If the commission  sharks had paid emissaries  in the field to disrupt the  business of the farmers and  keep them disorganized, the  work could not be better  done than the farmers themselves are doing it.  wtm������������������������������������wi  Birds of Highest  Quality  For Exhibition and Breeding  F.

The cleanest record  shown by any is that of the  Enderby Fruit & Produce  Association, and yet it has  been forced to go into liquidation with $3,000 owing it  from the Central.

Then they boil over  and cause trouble.  With all of last season's costly experience, it is  doubtful if the farmers . and fruit raisers of the Province are going to leave themselves in a position to  profit by their mistakes. The coming season will find  them as badly disorganized "as ever, they were, unless  the Government takes.hold and appoints a competent  inspector to direct affairs.  At a meeting of the Enderby Fruit & Produce Association, last Saturday,. a letter was read from the  President of the Central organization stating that the  Government had declined to aid the Central, and, in  view of the antagonism that had arisen, it was deemed  advisable to close the Revelstoke office to stop expenses.  A message from the Secretary of -the organization  stated that the Central would have to liquidate to protect its-members.  In the face of, this information, the level-headed  of the Enderby organization felt that the local exchange should take the proper steps to collect from the  Central the amount due the Enderby members, and  continue.the organization so as to be able to handle the  business of the coming season^ and eventually to build  up a strong, permanent institution. But there were  those present who held rigidly to the demand: "Settle  with us for last year's business and then we will talk  about next year's business." Geprge Weir insisted on  "busting'er up and starting over again," and said when  he left the room he did so to bring suit against the  local exchange to recover the amount due him. ~  ���������������������������In order to protect all the members to whom the  local was indebted, as a result of .the Central failing to  . make returns on produce sold���������������������������aggregating $3,000���������������������������  it was decided to place the,local in liquidation, Geo. R.  Lawes being named as liquidator.  What position the Government intends to take in  the matter has not been made known. It is apparent  that the officials at Victoria- are not satisfied with the  way the Central has been managed; inspite of z\l the  good things said of the management at, the recent  meeting at Revelstoke. It'is apparent, too, that something must be done by the Province to place our marketing facilities on a more permanent footing. It is  most disheartening to the men who are striving so hard  to bring about co-operation ..amongst the producers to  have these annual failures in the -handling of the produce of the Province. There does not appear to have  been any dishonesty in connection with the management of the Revelstoke organization, but this fact remains: Returns were not made in full for all the produce sold through that organization, and the confidence  of the shippers-has been lost.  Donald Matheson, at the. Central Farmers' Institute  meeting, held in Victoria recently, put through a resolution calling upon the Government to investigate the  management oi the Central.. The Government owes it  to the people and the management to do so... We have  not any idea that such an enquiry would reveal any  irregularities, but it would show what mistakes have  been made, and reveal what the farmers and fruit men  arejipL_g_unst mAe_j_ay_of__rA__?>___Q^P_ltjto}__lQ-_X:--  mission and rebates, and in this way do much good.   .

There is a very general notion   that  when  tlie  United    States    Goveamment  tfives a man a patent for an invention  bj- this very act the patentee is in possession     of    exclusive    and inalienable  rights to his invention for a term    of  years.   Now this is the very thiny that  does not necessarily exist, and the very  thing that patentees, investors and  the  public   would   like   to   have  established.  Most   patents   tire   exploited   by   others  than  inventors, and  the  money  for  the  purpose largely supplied by those with  little  knowiedj;������������������   of  the  laws.     It  has  liapp.iwxJ time and time again that the  governmental  patent has proved worthless.    It used to he  that it aviis. little  more   than   prima   facie evidence   lo  l>e  used in litigation.    Of recent years there  has heen some improvement; in the laws  und practice, but at present there is no  gov.rnmeiit-a!    guarantee      behind    tho  paper issued to any inventor.���������������������������Philadelphia Inquirer.   41- ��������������������������� ^   A Woman's Sympathy  Are you discouraged'?

TJiis game is intended for the ISTew  Year season. .It is a method of making  the resolutions tha.t are called for by  that period, ."he object is 'to write something that is ridiculously impossible.  Supply paper ;_nd pencil to each of the  party, and request them-all to write five  or eix resolutions for the New Year.  They may write those that some one else  ought to make.  Each player then signs his slip .and  they are all folded and collected. Each  player, says the People's Home Journal,  then <lrss.ws a sdip and reads it aloud, and  he must, if it be. possible, illustrate wha-t  he reads by action.  For example, A holds a- paper signed  by B, which reads as follows:  "These are the resolutions that I make  for the coming vear:  "1. If J eaji't do as f like, I'll do a* 1  must;   so now I read tin's paper aloud.  '"1. I'll hop in a. circle before 1 sit  down . (He does to.)  "o. i muni waJk with my right foot on  my loft- side.    (He must try to do so.)  "A. 1 must strike a match on the water  in a glass.  "������������������. J must carry water-in a sieve.. (A  wideawake player will do this by using  ���������������������������x niece of ice.)  "6. I must wind ihe clock on the wall  even' morning before 1 awake."  The things that- A cannot do will cause  a laugh. The game may be made very  Rimuiing if everyone writes funny resolutions.

With such a' new inspiration iu hi*  life James Hill set to work with redoubled determination to win his wav to  wealth. Hy 1872 he had become a joint  owner, with Norman W.

Through all these long years of ceaseless and almost superhuman work. _.Ir.  Hill has found time to cultivate his mind  and to indulge his love of things arti--  tice. He i>. a great reader, with an excellent taste in literature, and owns one of  the finest collections of books in America. His picture galleries are cro\\_;jd,  with some of the masterpieces of art.  on which lie has lavished hundreds ' of  thousands of pounds���������������������������his .Corols, Millets and Bonguereaus alone representing a large fortune; while his collection  of precious stones is one cf the mo . costly and comprehensive iu the world.  What is even more interesting is the  fact that Mr. Hill remains to-day as unspoiled by fortune as when'he dispensed  tea and suga. over the store-counter in  Wellington county, Ontario, or carried  timber at St. Paul. He i.s far prouder  of his triumph over the difficulties that  have beset his path than of the millions  that triumph has brought him; and he  values his riches chiefly because they  enable him to do some good service to  humanity. Tn making his own fortune  he is proud to remember that he has  made, to a greater or Icser-r extent, that  of thousands of others." and has added  enormously to the food 'resources of the  world.

One day,  who', ho was carrying a heavy load from  t.h" wharf fo a steamer, lie caught a  ���������������������������_iitnj).-e of a (rim figure with a sweet  I'.cc and merry, mischievous eyes, standing ������������������n the doorway of a .small hotel  which lie passed on his laborious jour-  ucy-'. There was something in this  vi'-wm ul" girlish freshness and sweetness  which -cut a strange and new thrill to  his heart and made his burden unae-  ci'imuibly light. Again and again, as he  pas-cd the inn, he ctiuglit a glimpse  more or less fugitive of the maid whose  bright eyes had such a magic for him,  until fvery load wa.s made light by the  prn'-'.iect of seeing her, und heavy as lead  it by chance, as too often happened, she  v\;:������������������ nnt  visible.  The girl who had thus innocently sown  the tirnt seeds of romance in the breast  of r.hc -talwart young laborer was tine  Mary Mahegan, known and loved by all  .-.hi-i'fcnew-lic- as plain "Alary," the maid-  ot'-ali-work at the small riverside hotel ���������������������������  a uinsome daughter of Krin with the  ltii'-Tii'.L face, the neatest figure, and the  iticmt. t In.ugh in St., Paul, and with  "> way of her own," too. which played  -a . havoc with masculine hearts. Is it  ;nty wonder, then, that young Hill, into  vho.-o. life she had come so romantically,  -huuid soon .become the mo_L abjret of  h.'r slaves and admirers?  N<iy was the "damage'' all on one side,  ���������������������������fu. Mary had from the first been at-.  ������������������i-M:l\'d by the industrious and'good-  locking porter who so often passed her  door, and was by no means loath to give  it!_'an occasional sunny smile to cheer  his way. So that when���������������������������as was not long,  w may be sure, in happening--���������������������������James  MiM screwed up his courage and  k-al'J.eiJ at the hotel to make her acquainting;, he quickly found that not one of  hrv  many   wooers had a better chance  was drived across hundreds of leagues oi  prairie land.

Hill himself was ubiquitous, here to-day and hundreds ot  miles away on the muirow. until he  seemed to be almo.-t everywhere at tlie  same time, driving long "distance- by  sledge over snowy wastes, dodging or  fighting predatory Indian.-., defying \ian-  ���������������������������ger, hunger and .hir.-t, and everywhere  infusing hi.- own enthii.itism into his  employees.  So .-wiftly"did" the work proceed tint,  in places, grading wa.- done at the rate  of seven mile- a day, and every woiIcing  d\y saw over three miles of track laid.

And ail th;,, wa- tliv work  of a few years, of one man's tireless fertile brain and unconquerable wiil.  Having conquered one world, and created a new and flourishing country to  supply the world with wheat. Mr. Hill  set to work on new, if kindred, enter-  priae-j. He built a fleet of luxurious passenger steamers for the gieat American  lakes, and another fleet of large cargo-  tships to curry flour, grain, and lumber.  Iliis next ambition wa- to capfuie the  Pacific trade; and for this puipose hr>  has built a fleet of ocean steamers far,  eclipsing any others in -size and carrying power. Each..of these vessels, it is.  said, is as. large as those two leviathuiw.  the 'Campania' and 'Lneania.' put together; it has a measurement of 28.000 tons,  and five acres of deck-room; while its  cargo requires twenty miles of yard-  tracks to accommodate it. And these are  but a few of the colossal undertaking*  which   this   wonderful   man,   who   l'ifiv  other mountain ranges continues ever,  year by year, to lengthen out as new  peak's and lofty crests aud scarps, hitherto uutrod by tiie foot of man, are,  from* time to time scaled by 'intrepid-  mountain climbers. And if is''not "surprising that they are"content-to take  some risk ju surmounting those towering precipices and upreared, beetling-escarpments; for perhaps to many there  could be no greater mundane pleasure  than, ulncnstock or ice-axe in'hand, to  achieve, the'ascent of some , of'.those  mighty inonarcha of the snows, arid, in  the eternal _ilentc of those -rock-girt  coombs, or on the summit of those jagged wind-swept pinnacles towering so  majestically upwards to the skie������������������, to  contemplate nature's ' wondrous handiwork, and from that elevated point, of  view to expeiienco that sense of awe,  that feeling almost of stupor which is  evoked by the sublimity and solemn  stateliness of the wondrous scene.  The fir-t stage of the ascent, before  the snowfields an: reached, too, is replete  with' wild beauty and interest. At the  side of the rough path a mountain tor-  lout swirls aud eddies over huge bould-  ersb and jutting rocks, now torn into  foam and spindrift by a gust' of wind  gendered in a deep fissure cleft in the  mountain, or now leaping over a precipice into the seething caldron beneath.

P.ut now, continuing the accent, we  leave all this fair prospect and are soon  in the midst of the everlasting snows,  the path crossing a glacier rent, by the  ever advancing motion of the ice into  all manner of varied forms, and clelt by  deep cre.a_._u_-. revealing in all their  beauty their wondrous tints of azure and  of lustrous emerald. l!ut with a cry.

The wnale is becoming  scarcer year after year. The plains no longer  tremble beneath the hoofs of the herds of  American bison. To find a white rhinoceros  is considered worth months of wandering  over the parchod ,veldts of .equatorial Africa.  Before the -railway'and the sun'the great  same is retreating to the fastnesses, and  there are left few spots on the globe where  the'sportsman may tinu big game the .giant  descendants of the fauna of other ������������������ras.  Almost the only apace where one may |  go to find big game in abundance is the  equatorial region of Africa. There oue 'may  still find the big African elephant, the rhinoceros, the hiponotamus, and the ��������������������������� crocodile,  which have almost disappeared from their  historic home, the Nile; the giraffe, the si-  lent-footed lion, the leopard, the slow-moving eland, the zebra aud the various members  cf the antelope family. II is evident, however, that unless measures' are taken to  protect them they will disappear as their  kind already have done in South Africa. Fifty  years ago that part of Africa teemed- with  l.bo s-arae kind of animals.  Unfortunately for the giraffe.'.his skin was  especially suitable for long whip lashes, such  as the Doer needed in urging his trek oxen  over the veldt. The Airican elephant has  very fine tusks. The elephant can keep pace  with the arrows of the black . oven though  they be poisoned, but with the breech-loading rifle in the. hands of the reckless sportsman, of recent years also in those of the  irresponsible ebon native, the, elephant falls  behind in the struggle for existence. The  tiny bullet in its effectiveness cniay be a  triumph of the ingenuity cf man when it can  bring to his knees the giant among animals,  but sometimes one-regrets its capacity when  one realizes that the life of an animal which  has required twenty-five years to mature  has been cut off in the twinkling of an eye.  The white-tailed gnu, the bontebok, the bles-  bok. the true sua.gga. the mountain zebra,  the rc-an antelope, the. Cape buffalo, the so-  called white rhinoceros, the black rhinoceros,  the hippopotamus, and the ostrich have all  disappeared from the Cape region. These animals are also disappearing from their'.last  strong-hold, the equatorial district.  It is said that only a few years ago most  of these animals showed no fear of man and  wandered about in his vicinitv with impunity, living at peace with him. lo-day  the elephant evades nam and is with difficulty found.

A petition is being circulated  and signed by everybody asking  Postmaster Harvey to consider  the moving of the postoffice from  its present quarters to a suitable  building to be erected by Geo.

Wm. Hancock is an old sport-  that is, he likes to play ball or  any old thing, just for the game's  sake alone.   It was he who made  it possible for the Enderby Curling Club to erect such a splendid  rink  in   time   to    have   their  winter's sport.

Basing his figures  on medicines furnished to 219 large  asylums and hospitals by the State  'Pharmacy, he finds that the old-  fashioned medicines retain, their  popularity.  An expert authority on being interviewed states that the tendeuciea  of the medical profession in Canada  are along exactly the same lines.  He gives the followiug old-fashioned  vegetable mixture as the safest and  best treatment for all stomach and  liver troubles, constipation, disorder  of the kidneys and bladder, and  states that many of the leading  physicians use these ingredients in  some form, often by some fancy and  expensive name: Fluid Extract Cas-  cara, *_ oz.; Compound Syrup of  Rhubarb, 1 oz.; Fluid Extract Car-  riana Compound, 1 oz.; Compound  Syrup Sarsaparilla, 5 oz.

Okanagan Creamery  Frank Slater, an experienced  creamery operator, has leased the  Armstrong Creamery, and he has  issued this frank, clear-cut statement of what he proposes to do:  The new lessee of the Creamery desires to make the following  announcement, concerning the  management of the above institution for the ensuing year:  Having leased the Creamery  for the year 1909, I wish to state  clearly the methods I shall adopt  in dealing with the farmers supplying cream. In the past, five  cents per pound from the price  of the butter fat, plus the overrun, was charged for. manufacturing."  The overrun is the difference  between- the butter fat and the  actual butter made; for example,  "A" receives credit for 85 lbs of  butter fat which at 30 cents per  lb. amounts to $25.50.   This 85  lbs.  of butter fat would make  100 lbs. of butter, which, selling  at  35    cts,   per  lb   wholesale,  would  realize $35,  or $9.50 for  manufacturing, or 9_ cts. per lb.  of butter.   In  "A's"  case the  overrun was 15 per cent.  This  system   has   been   con-  manufacturer.  The average overrun according to  Government standards is 15 per cent only.  My method���������������������������I will make a straight charge for  manufacture of 7c per pound of butter. This is  the system adopted as before mentioned, and  which is bo successful at the Victoria Creamery.  Further. 1 will put up_a guarantee that I can make  as much butter as any patron can make at home.  How I pay for cream-After deducting this 7  cts. per lb. for manufacture, I allow the patrons  ���������������������������11 the butter fat and overrun. I will, commencing the first of March and until further notice,  Day _S cents per lb. of butter on the 15th of each  month. ,    .-_,  Cream to be shipped Tuesdays only. Noquan-  tity will be either too lnrgo or too small. I will  pay express charges on all cream shipped to me.  - In conclusion, I wish tosay that I am here to  ���������������������������tay. I will gladly furnish any testimonial!  needed, and ask investigation of my character und  ability.  My books will be open to all patrons at all times  and will be regularly audited by Mr. J. M.
