FROM ONE MAN'S POINT OF VIEW  THE businessmen of Vernon ought to  prepare a new code of ethics for their  sports committees. In their eagerness to milk the rest of the Valley towns,  they seem to forget the true principle upon  which all clean sport is based. They forget  the unwritten law observed everywhere,  that if any advantage is given it should be  to the visitor. Seldom, indeed, will a home  team enter a contest with a visiting team  with the odds three to one against the visitors. To do so might mean the defeat of  the visitors, and the keeping of the prize  money by the home team, but it is not the  spirit of the sportsman. It is more the  spirit of a bum sport looking for a lead-  pipe cinch. It will be many a long day before the Okanagan curlers forget the treatment accorded them at Vernon last week.  I  T is. amusing to see how_ greedily,some  of the Vancouver papers attempt to  assume the credit of making the first  shipment of B. C. flour from Vancouver to  Liverpool. A couple of weeks ago the  Province gave the startling intelligence to  its reader to the effect that a Vancouver  mill had Just made the first flour shipment  from that port to Liverpool. Three months  ago Walker's Weekly told of a shipment  then made by The Columbia Flouring Mills  Co., Ltd;, from the Enderby mill direct to  Liverpool via Vancouver. The schedule  under which these shipments were made  went into force last June. The Enderby  mill was the first in Canada to take advantage of the all-water rate, and it is rather  encouraging to see the coast shippers trying  to steal the credit. By-and-by those Coast  fellows will wake up without being pin-  punctured���������������������������perhaps.  EVEN the good people of Salmon Arm  have grown tired of pea-soup journalism. George Armstrong has bought  the Observer of the Fraser Brothers and  will give our sister town a newspaper. We  extend to the retiring editors our best  wishes, and to the town and new editor  a hearty handshake.  TOO much credit cannot be given to the  local men who succeeded in carrying  off so many of the prizes at the Winter Poultry Show. It is a big feather in  Enderby's cap to have the highest-scoring  bird at the Exhibition, and especially  against such birds as were sent from Manitoba. Geo. H. Smedley deserves all the  credit, for to his foresight and good judgment, and his willingness to invest the  money and take all the risk, is due the  honor of having such a bird in Enderby.  Let our poultrymen keep steadily hammering for better stock, and when the next  show is held here, let us hope to see the  highest-scoring birds owned in the District.  BILLY SUNDAY is one of those professional revivalists who go about the  country seeking whom they may devour. They say he is extremely successful  with his clap-trap, and his meetings "for  women only" are said to be deeply tear-  stained'and quite pentecostal. In a recent  -rant^at-a^meetingHii-Georgia^this-man-Sun--  day said: ' 'I have studied the Bible from  Genesis to Revelations, and I have read  everything that Bob Ingersoll ever spouted  from one end of the land to the other, and  I have read it carefully. And if Bob Ingersoll isn't in Hell," God is a liar and the Bible  isn't worth the paper it is printed on." Is  it not an awful thing that these ranting,  canting, spitting, spouting, pink, punk and  puggy, pulpit-pounding "duly ordained"  "servants of God" should be so damnably  cruel! Contrast Rev. Mr. Sunday's words  with those spoken by Ingersoll at his brother's grave: "He who sleeps here, when dying,  mistaking the approach of death for the return of  health, whispered with his latest breath: Tarn  better now.' Let us believe, in spite of doubts  and dogmas, of fears and tears, that these dear  words are true of all the countless dead. Speech  cannot contain our love. There was, there is, no  gentler, stronger, manlier man."

To  President Waby and Secretary English, the Nortnem Okanagan Poultry  Association owes a debt of gratitude,  and to the Northern Okanagan Poultry Association Enderby owes more  than it has. realised or will realise  for some time. In signalizing President Waby and Secretary English we  do not mean to ignore the splendid  work done by Dr. Keith, Tlios.  Pound, Mr. English, Sr., the Messrs.  Marsh-all and Petar of Lansdowneand  Armstrong, and the several who contributed their work gratuitously to  make the project a success. It is no  small matter toinaugurate and bring-  to a successful ending the first Poultry Show in a district indifferent to  the benefits to be derived, and these  men-deserve-praise for the great success that has rewarded their efforts,  in"later years, as the annual poultry  show increases in importance and  scope, the full meaning of this success will dawn upon the members of  the Association and the public .in-  general.  From start to finish the first poultry show was a success.  It was conscientiously managed,  and. from the owner of the poorest  scrub bird to the fancier who sent to  the show the finest exhibition stock,  we have.heard nothing but words of  praise for the men having charge of  the exhibition room. And from Dr.  Bell himself, who has judged the  largest shows in the East, and should  know whereof he speaks, we learn  that Enderby's first show was in  _m_any_ respects much  better than the  K. Bristo, of Summerland, sent several splendid birds of the Brown Leghorn variety, and T. Cockburn Kerr,  of Kelowna, brought three coops of  VVyandottes and Anconas. The local  entries brought the total number of  birds on exhibition up to nearly 200.  That some of these birds were not  qualified to appear in the score-card  list, must be expected, since this was  the first score-card exhibition that  has been held in the Okanagan; but  on the other hand there were a number of birds which scored very high.  The highest scoring cockerel was  that of Geo. H. Smedley, of Enderby,  whose Black Minorca was given 95 y2.  points. This is the handsome first-  prize bird that Mr. Smedley bought  at the coast last fall. Mr. Bristo's  Brown Leghorn Cockerel scored next  best, being given 94% points. Mrs.  Cooper's highest-point cockerel  scored 93%, being cut one point for  a broken wing-feather. There were,  in all, 55 birds scoring over 90  points, which indicates the high  standard of the birds on exhibition.  There were few dubs."  \ That this Winter Poultry Show  w~l be a permanent thing there is  no doubt. Enderby business men  have indicated their determination  to contribute their part towards unking it a "go," and for next year have  already given enough special prizes  to make the show a success.  For the best cock, cockerel, hen  and pullet, any breed, the Enderby  Trading Co., Ltd., will give a silver  cup. (ei  For the best cockerel and pullet,  any breed, Dr. Keith, will give a  silver cup.  For the best male bird at the show,  H. E. Waby will give a silver cup.  For the best female bird, Geo. H.  Smedley will give a  silver cup.  Robert Bell will give a cash special of $25.00. to go to the best ox-  majority of first shows.  Locally the show was very well  patronized. Saturday morning and  afternoon the Exhibition hall was  well filled with spectators. Friday  the judging was done, and only members of the Association were admitted to sec^ the scoring. A pleasing  feature of Saturday's attendance was  the arrival of two sleighloads of  happy people from Salmon Ann.  In view of the liberal spirit that  has always oharactprized Lndorby's  altitude toward the Fall Fairs at our  sister towns. Vernon and Armstrong,  it was anticipated that a fair share  of exhibits'and possibly a few spectators would put in an appearance  and lend a hand to make the first  Winter Poultry Show held in the Vai-  1 y a success, but not.an exhibit came  and not a spectator, excepting- Scribe  Wolfenden. of the Armstrong Advertiser, and E. T. Pc^ar.  Two handsome Ringlet. Barred  Rock'cockerels came from Trees-  bank. -Manitoba, and several birds of  the same variety came from Langley  Prairie. Mrs. A. Cooper sent the  former, and  Robt. 'Wilson the latter..  ThIJiTToTr'pTlT.  " V =  With these excellent prizes to  start the list, it should be an easy  matter to make the inducements sufficiently heavy for the next show to  bring birds from far and near, and  it is believed that instead of 2 00 we  shall have GOO birds, many of them  from the best poultry farms in- Canada. The date for the next show  will be fixed for December instead of.  .January, and will be set so as to not  conflict with coast dates as it did this  year, Victoria's show being on the  same dates as the  Underby show.  Friday evening at the close of the  close of the exhibition hall, a banquet  was given to Dr. Hell in the spacious  dining room of Ihe King Edward.  Mine Host Murphy set up a princely  supper. Twenty-seven plates were  laid, and every chair was filled. The  following men were present: T-T, \V.  Harvey, Wm. Elson. W. Allan Dobson, Geo. Bell, J. A. Dake, Dr. Keith.  T. Cockburn Kerr, Thos.

Following were the toasts:  "The   King"���������������������������National   Anthem  ''Northern   Okanagan   and   Its   Possibilities"  H. W. Harvey  "Enderby and Her Guest"  Mayor Geo.  Bell  Dr .A. W. Bell  "The Poultry Show and Its Objects"  I-I. E. Waby  "The  Golden  Egg  Hen"  G. H. Smedley  "Breeding to Elvate the Brood"  W.  L.  Marshall  "The Hen and Her Feed"  E. T.

Barnes  Grab.am   Rosoman  "Our Host"  In responding to the toast with  which his name is associated, Dr.  Bell spoke very encouragingly of the  Poultry Show. While he had been  disappointed in the number of  entries, he was pleased to find so  many high-scoring birds in the exhibition. He said he had scored the  birds the same as he would had  tliere been 2 000 entries instead of  200, and did not "let them down  easy." Were they entered at any of  the big shows, he said the result  would be about the same���������������������������there  would be no material difference in  l-lre^p o ints^gi- ve liT-^He���������������������������t-h-o u-g-h-t���������������������������th e-  Association should feel riattered at  having so successful a show to start  with, and hoped to hear of the active  co-operation of the poultrymen so as  to bring, about greater things from  year to year. As to advertising the  district, he sail he believed the best  4fnd���������������������������pnly^cffeetuall^vayiof. doing .it.  was to send a car exhibit to the Winnipeg Fair, showing what, the District 'can'.produce. ". iviid he advised  strongly that steps be taken to this  end.; Especially with regard to our  'fruit. He did not know of anything  that would so impress the Manitoban  as an excellent display of fruit.  Speaking as a poultryman, and to  poultrymen and those having a desire  to improve their flocks, . he said  whether the poultry business were  gone into from a utility standpoint  or the standpoint of the fancier, it  was an exceedingly profitable calling,,  and intensely interesting. He could  give innumerable instances Avhere  breeders of fancy and utility stock  were finding a ready market for-  everything they could raise at almost'  any price they might ask.    One thou- /  7  ENDERBY, B. C, February 4, 1909  ������������������������������������������������������'  ������������������������������������������������������1'  sand dollar hens and cockerels were  not uncommon. Two-hundred, three-  hundred, five-hundred-clollar hens  and cocks were common. The market is unlimited for market eggs at  50c, 60c and SO c a dozen, and broilers at from 5Qc to 75c each. These  from the utility end. Fancy-strain  eggs, find a ready market at prices  ranging from $2 per setting up to  $15. And there does not seem to  be any abatement in the demand.  Mr. Dobson gave a characteristic  reply to the toast, "Our Market,"  and as it gives some splendid pointers, and calls attention to many influences that lead to failure in the  making and keeping of a market, his  response is given here:  "I feel some hesitation in replying  to the toast of "Your Markets" for  I never raised poultry in my life.  However, the market for poultry  must necessarily be much the same  as any other market, but with the  important difference in this case that  it is entirely a question of supply,  for the demand exists to a practically  unlimited extent. Do not flatter  yourselves that you will ever glut it,  there is no fear of that. You start  under exceptionally favorable circumstances, the whole country is crying out for your goods, and all yoa  have to do to rapidly degenerate into  bloated plutocrats is to supply the  demand. Can you do it? I am  afraid you will call me a heretic  when I say, as I do, that the first  thing you must do to secure and keep  a market is to put yourselves in a  position to supply poultry and eggs,  not spasmodically, but at all seasons,  and of good quality. I cannot pose  as an expert judge of poultry, you  would find me out if I did, but my  mother taught me as a child one  valuable test of the edibility of fowls:  When you go to buy one, dressed  ready for the table of course, take a  long, strong pin with you, and surreptitiously push it into the breast  of your prospective dinner. If you  can push it in without bending it,  and your fingers are strong enough  to pull it out again without the aid  of a pair of pliers, that bird is fit to  *ea-ts  'Of eggs I have had more experience, and I can assure you that  there are only three varieties of eggs  ���������������������������the new laid egg, which is a practically extinct variety, the fresh egg  which is very scarce, and the EGG,  which is the one that causes all the  trouble and the only one of which  the supply exceeds the demand.  "It is all very well to raise a lot of  aristocratic fowls, whether of the male  or table persuasion or the female or  egg-producing variety; if silver cups  and glory are the limit of your ambition you may attain it by spending  enough money on imported stock, but  if you want your poultry to class  with city debentures as a permanent  source of income, you must not expect Vancouver, or Calgary or Winnipeg or othei* adjacent villages to  eat unlimited crates of $25 birds or  eggs at $15 for a setting of 13. It  is useless for you to hold,shows and  invite or expect the buying public to  visit them unless you are in a position to supply the goods, it is no use ,  to  have  nothing  but  samples.     Let'  me give you by way of illustration  an instance that I know of. At an  agricultural show an exhibitor took  a valuable prize for a dish of a dozen  or so of potatoes of one variety, a  visitor asked him what they were  .worth per ton,, and the man quoted  a price. After a few minutes deliberation the visitor said, "I will take  two carloads at that price. Imagine  his surprise and disgust when the  exhibitor told him that he had not  a barrow full of them altogether.  Now that is no way to look for business. What would a merchant think  of a traveller who after showing him  all through his samples, tcid him  that he could not supply the goods.  It is no use to have nothing but  samples.  "I presume that your executive  does, or will busy itself finding  markets for you, but it is up to  all the mem'bers to see that you keep  them. If you leave it all to one man  to keep up the supply he will either  fail, or become a millionaire, and in  either event you will lose him.  "An important point which my  experience teaches me, many  farmers do not consider, or if  they do they ignore it, is the  temptation to take all the profit.  It is unreasonable to expect a retailer  to sell goods at the same price as he  pays for them, but you do it, particularly with eggs, and you give him  no option, but force him to do if by  Peddling them yourselves if he refuses, and if ho pays you y mr price  and raises the retail price five cents  a dozen for himself you touch him  for the advanced price next time you  bring eggs. Do you call that a square  deal? Why, it is not even good business, for you take no account of the  value of your own time, and I suppose you pay a peddler's license. No,  you must cut it out. Either take  your produce to your own organisation, and put them in a position to  fill orders promptly���������������������������and this is the  only proper way���������������������������or if they have no  orders, which however they always  will, then sell them to a local merchant, and let the poor beggar make  five cents.  ____A_dvertisement._. or.-.,rather...Pub-  licity, must naturally play an important part in any modern selling  scheme, but 1 believe that no amount  of publicity can make a success of a  business when not backed up by absolute value in the goods sold.  Gentlemen, 1 ask you as one who has  suffered much at your hands, for  Heaven's sake look at tlieir^teetiriie^  fore you ship them. Eat the pensioners yourselves. Last summer I  shipped on behalf of a farmer, a  crate of fowls to an hotel on the  main line, in a few days the manager,  who .fortunately is a humorist first  and a hotel man next, wrote acknowledging receipt of a crate of "frames"  and asking when the meat would  be along. Don't ship "frames" and  spoil your markets. Recommendation is always the best advertisement,  and recommendation can only come  from satisfied customers.  "Success in any business largely  depends on the personality of its  heads. Unswerving purpose is the  root idea of continued success, and  unswerving purpose must be largely  wrapped up with .personality. If  your methods and purpose arc right  you can proceed fearlessly, ignoring  competitors and moving on in your  own lines. To stop and watch competitors is unprofitable timidity. If  they copy your methods you can afford to smile���������������������������it is the greatest compliment they can pay you, and the  surest indication of success. The  fundamental truth, the point I want-  to make, is this: You must produce  the goods, but remember, any sort of  goods, in any sort of shape, won't do.  Study your customer, if you get an  opportunity to talk to- him seize it,  if not, write to him occasionally, ask  him if your goods are giving unqualified satisfaction to his customers. If they are, pat yourself on the  back and at the same time see if you  can make them still better. If they  are not, find out why, and set yourself to remedy the fault. Above all,  give your customer what, he wants,  not what YOu want. If he wants  fowls plucked and the head left on.  leave it on. If he wants it off, off  with it. If he wants his eggs in 6-  doz. crates, let him have them that  way, don't write and tell him that  your grandfather always packed  them in 24 doz. and so do you.  "In order to suceed you must be  reliable. If you write to a customer  and tell him you can ship him six  dozen pullets twice a week on Tuesdays and i<ridays, at $6.00 per doz.  f.o.b.. and he accepts your offer, ship  them to him on Tuesday and Friday,  not Wednesday and Saturday, and  ship him six dozen, without any  variation in the price.

Meets With Approval  Only words of commendation  are heard on the proposed action  of Aid. Peel in bringing forth a  by-law for public improvements.  The feeling prevails that Enderby  should do the same as other  cities, and make her public improvements by the issuance of  bonds, so that those who come  later will bear their "share of the  expense of city building. For  a city to confine its improvements  within the limits Gf a village taxation must of necessity restrict  growth and retard development.  Stettler, and dozens of other new  towns in the Canadian Northwest, built more sidewalks, and  graded more streets, and added  more improvements in two  months' time than Enderby has  done in her four years of incorporation. *: Did these towns wait  for the people to come in before  they made the improvements?  They did not. They raised the  money on the city's credit, .issued  long-term debentures, and made  the improvements. The improve  ments helped to bring the people  and now, where there was nothing 18 months ago, we see modern cities of 1,500 and 2,000 population. And these 1,500 or 2,000  people are helping to pay for the  improvements. This is the science  of city building.  Exchange Meeting  Last Saturday the members of  the Enderby Fruit & Produce  Association, met in the I. O. O.  F. Hall to hear the president's  and secretary's reports and review the past season's business.  The meeting was the best the  Association has held. Much dissatisfaction has been expressed  at the slow returns from the  Central for produce sold, and at  this meeting the matter was discussed in all its phases.  The reports of the president  and secretary showed the local  association to be in good condition  and in view of the fact that a  meeting of the Central Exchange  is being held this week in Revel-  stoke, it was decided to send another delegate to the meeting to  investigate the financial condition of Central. Mr. Saltwell  was appointed, and the meeting  adjourned to await his report.  If one thing was brought out  more prominently than another  at Saturday's meeting, it was the  faith of all present in the co-operation of the growers. And,  while it was admitted that the  past season had made apparent  many weaknesses in the operation of the selling machine, yet  the faith of the members was not  shaken in their organization.

Essay on an Enderby Cow  One of the school children was  asked to write an essay on a cow,  and this is how he did it:  An Enderby cow is an animal  and is born while very young.  (So is a calf). An Enderby cow  is useful in two ways: It gives  milk. The milk is good to drink,  also white; so is the right hind  foot, except on brown cows, and  theirs is black.  The milk is also good to eat if  you freeze it. To freeze cow's  milk you use ordinary cold ice,  and after the milk is thoroughly  chilled you set it out in the sun  for an hour and a half (anyways  twenty minutes), then cut into  small strips like noodles and  serve while still warm.  Enderby cow's milk straight is  too strong, therefore they always  divide it with the town pump or  meadow brook before using. If  you pour two days milking from  fifteen cows into the well you can  have milk all winter. (Sure; my  Paw does). All cows give milk  and butter (but not eggs).  Enderby cows have horns���������������������������so  have automobiles���������������������������but a cow can't  blow his horn; he gives you the  horn and you make the noise.  All cows like red, some of 'em  will follow you all over the field  to get a little bump at it, and if  you are a gooder runner than him,  you beat; but if he catches up  with you you don't need to run���������������������������  you can fly or ride.  A dead cow won't hurt you,  neither will a live cow after he's  lulled;  to Eat  Moffet's Best is made in the  largest and most modern  mill in British Columbia  It is sold by all enterprising  Grocers  Made only from Hard Wheat  The first Canadian Flour  ever shipped by the Pacific  to U.

In the first place I always impress  upon my patients the importance of  careful living and regular habits.  Moderation in eating, keeping the  feet dry and wearing plenty of warm  clothing are some of the precautions.  No amount of medicine will cure,  or even help, unless attention is paid  to these few simple rules.  ������������������I have had perfect results where  patients folowed these instructions,  assisted by the following blood tonic  and rheumatic specific: Fluid Extract Cascara, \\ oz.; Fluid Extract  Carriana Compound, 1 oz.; Compound  Syrup Sarsaparilla, 6 oz. Dose: One  teuspoouful after meals and at bedtime.  It is advisable to drink plenty of  water  during  the   treatment.  A prominent local merchant who  has tried this treatment states that  it relieves backache, bladder trouble,  and urinary troubles almosa immediately, and. has a gentle but thorough action on the kidneys.

BLIND CELEBRITIES.  Loss  of  Sight   Has   But   Little   Interfered   With   These   Men.  Dr. Campbell of Norwood, England,  has been the most successful of blind  mountaineers, having actually climb-  eel to the summit of Mont Blanc; but  he had a close competitor in Right  Hon. Henry Fawcett, M.P., the blind  Postmaster-General, who once ascended the Cima di Jazzi, near Zermatt,  a   mountain   more   than    12,500   feet  high.  Mr. Wolstenholme, the blind organist and composer, was educated at  the College for the Blind at Worcester, where youths are prepared for the  universities and for professional careers. Quite a number of them have  entered the church and become successful clergymen; and one, Dr. Ranger, is a well-known London solicitor,  conducting an extensive practice in  the City.  At the Worcester Blind College the  pupils take the same lessons and pass  the same examinations as at other  public schools, and play the same  games. They are quite expert at both  cricket and football, a hollow ball being used fitted with a bell, so that  they are guided by sound. Nearly 50  per cent, of them take university decrees and 25 per cent, gain university  honors, a proportion probably exceeding any other public school. At the  recent prize distribution Mr. Wolstenholme gave an organ recital, and one  of the principal speakers was another formal pupil, Rev. H. J. R. Mar-  ston, the blind incumbent of Belgrave  Chapel, London, a first-class in classics and at one time a University  Extension lecturer.  The Carriers of the Thames.  The reader who may have been inclined to look hitherto with something  sikin to" contempt upon the humble  sailing-barge of the Thames is entreat-  od to learn more about her. Let him  stand upon her deck and watch her  ia action, and he will speedily alter  his opinion. He will discover that  she is not humble at all, but a proud  vessel worthy oPTlm mighty flyer  which is her home.

Six of these were Vernon  rinks, 3 Kelowna, 2 Enderby, and  one each from Summerland,  Peachland and Armstrong. Instead of five sheets of ice as was  promised, only two were provided, and in addition to the $5  paid by each club entering, the  individual players were taxed one  dollar a head. But Vernon  learned her lesson, and when the  curlers go there again, it is hoped  the "hog line" will be less conspicuous. The Grand Challenge  cup was won by Lang's rink, of  Vernon, Murphy's rink 3rd; the  Henderson trophy was undecided  llADE-AT-HOME  and is to be played off between  Peachland and Summerland.

In the first place, he found that  every time lie partook freely of acid  fruits his old trouble returned; and,  secondly, he learned that it was absolutely essential to keep the kidneys  active. To do this it was necessary  to drink plenty of water. Occasionally he would dissolve a Jithia tablet  __l__Ji____a__r- -to_assist-i ts_action_.,o.n_.  the  kidneys.  The treatment is as follows: Procure from your druggist: Fluid Extract Cascara. '_ oz.; Compound  Syrup Rhubarb, 1 oz.; Fluid Extract  Carriana Compound, 1 oz.; Compound  Syrup Sarsaparilla, 5 oz.  Take one teaspoon ful after each  meal   and   at  bedtime.  This is valuable information. This  can he mixed at home. Save the  prescription.

The announcement that the Temple Church is undergoing alteration  and improvement serves to remind  Londoners that they have in their  midst a tangible link with the old  Knights Templars, the remarkable  order combining the priestly and  military character whose varying fortunes provided some of the most  romantic chapters in the history of  the Middle.

The First Annual Poultry Show  of the Northern Okanagan Poultry Association, held last week at  Enderby, was in every way a  success. ' It was a splendid start  in the right direction," is the  comment of all who visited the  Exhibition. It will grow in importance each year, and will be  the means of bringing to the  Okanagan the finest utility and  exhibition fowl in Canada. The  climatic conditions of the Okanagan are very favorable for  chicken-raising. Our poultry-  men should make the most of this  advantage. They should get in  line for the big things. Raise  the stock and go up against the  big fellows. Send as many coops  as possible to the Winnipeg Industrial. This year, push the  early hatch. Send the best to  iVinnipiegr^S^  object in view, and you will win  the best poultry prizes in this  class the Industrial has to offer.  Do this, and the big fellows will  come back at you at our next  Winter Poultry Show with the  best they have.  mnFemn  n  ������������������    .I1WMI  "*-* ������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������-"��������������������������� ���������������������������. ���������������������������-���������������������������   ���������������������������._ ^_.
