A blue pencil mark here indicates that your subscription  is past due,  and the editor would like to retain your nameon the roll of honor.  Pa says: "The only sin is to   be unkind"; and then he  added, ''there's another: to be lazy."  FROM ONE MAN'S POINT OF VIEW  FLORENCE NIGHTINGALE but gave  expression to the mother heart in all  normal women when she roused the  heart of England and then the world, by  her courageous work for the sick and  maimed. The heart of woman has not  changed���������������������������it was the same at the cross on  Mount Calvary; it is the same today. Men  flee from the presence of pain and suffering, and pass to the women hot-air sandwiches from the amen corner. It remains for the great mother heart to take  these things that her lord giveth and transmute them into deeds of sympathy and  love. If the sick of the world had to depend upon men and preachers for care and  comfort, the prayer from every sick bed  would be: "God, let me die!" It remains  for the mother heart of woman, and her  ingenuity, to provided for the sick the comforts and attention that mean more than,  llOTtof's care. ^���������������������������  Normal man,���������������������������perhaps I should say abnormal, for man, generally speaking, is  abnormal���������������������������is, at best, largely brute. The  finer nature has been crowded out of him,  if, indeed, itjvvas ever there. - Be- is-too-  selfish, too menial, to do the menial work  of the sick room. It requires much of a  queenly heart to do such work in such a  way as to take from it itsmenialness. This,  woman has.  It is not surprising that the ladies of  Enderby should take the lead in the matter of a hospital for the town. Every  movement the world has known that has  had for its object the alleviation of the suffering of the sick, has been launched and  kept alive by the mother heart of woman.  The women of Enderby # know full well  what it means'to be sick in the majority of  the homes of a small town. They know the  attending physician and nurse���������������������������if there be  one���������������������������have to combat far more from without  than from within the  sick room.    And,  having this knowledge,   they  have been  earnestly striving to interest the men of  the town, and thus secure their co-operation in establishing a public hospital, where  the proper care and  attention could be  given the sick.   Man is wise in his own  conceit.   The ladies have   been  asked a  thousand and one  "business" questions by  the sterner sex, relevant and irrelevant,  and they have been expected  to answer  right off the reel.   It is safe to say that  if the ordinary businessman threw up before himself one half the imaginary obstacles that the ladies have been confronted  with, he never would have started in business.    To publicly answer these questions,  and place before the businessmen and citizens generally the details necessary to be  known in order to make a start, a public  meeting was called.    One businessman,  one professional man, one dairyman, one  fruit raiser, one station agent, one editor  attended.     Every city  official   was conspicuous by his absence; so were the ministers.   Ten or a dozen ladies were present.  The meeting adjourned without action.   In  fact, the ladies were not subjected to the  discourtesy of being asked to submit their  case before such a small representation of  men. ���������������������������________________^^  It is not surprising that the men of Enderby should be indifferent to the hospital  proposition. They are only men; as good  and as bad as other men. But it is surprising that a question so important is not  accordedar hear ing.  The ladies should not feel discouraged.  The example of Stettler, Alta., should be  followed here. Stettler is a progressive  three-year-old town. The mayor called a  hospital meeting. It was attended by only  a few men, the ministers likewise failing  to attend. A second meeting was called  and when the people did take hold the  hospital came with very little effort.  Whether the effort required at Enderby  is little or big it is a cause that is worthy of our best, and one that must win  before we can move ahead of the Eatonized  idea of loyalty to our town and its institutions which unfortunately prevails.

The Knights of Pythias propose opening their enlarged hall  on Dec. 11th with a grand ball.

The supper was provided by Mrs...Pound, ..and was  relished by all.  A. Fulton's stock of pocket  knives and. table cutlery for  Xmas trade is being unpacked  this week. If you want to see  something nice, call early.  When Enclerby's city council  awakens to the full meaning of  its position, it will be doing what  the town council of ; Chilli wack  has just done, make an appropriation for a town hospital.  The gardens of Enderby next  spring will put a touch of glad  ness to the town that has been  unequalled in the past. The fall  work by our gardeners looks like  business, and is a good omen.  It is such a treat to find a newspaper fearless enough to speak  the truth, and one that will  bravely put the right estimate  upon itself. The Salmon Arm  Observer says: "Old newspapers  for sale; suitable for putting under carpets, etc.���������������������������The Observer  office."   That's heroic!  Druggist Reeves has opened a  line   of   Xmas   cards   that   are  Scotchy enough for any "kiltie  mon.'' An artistic arrangement  of the plaids, the thistle, the  heather, and a thin Scotch cake,  is made doubly interesting by appropriate verse suitable for the  occasion. His autograph stationery is exquisite, and the latest  thing out.  A friend said the other day,  speaking of a new businessman,  "He's tackling a hard proposition." That's the kind of men  we want���������������������������men not afraid to  tackle the hard propositions.  When a man comes to you "looking for an opening," pass him  _up. When_a_man__squ_eezes_in to  make an opening,   nail him; he's  got the stuff in him that counts.  Every maternity case means,  on an average, $100 to a hospital.  Some of this goes to the butcher,  some to the grocer, some to the  druggist, some to the fruiter,  and so on down the line until the  $100 is parceled out over the  town. The same applies to general hospital cases. Therefore,  when we fail to provide for the  care of these cases at home, and  compel them to go elsewhere, we  make our town the poorer and  our people less contented.  At a meeting of the Enderby  Curling Club, held Monday evening, in F. Pyman's jewelry  store, J. A. Morrison was elected  president, A. Reeves, vice-president, and Dr. H. W. Keith, secretary-treasurer. It was decided  to purchase another set of stones,  in view of the fact that the membership of the club now numbers  35, with a possible 40, and the  rink to be erected by Aid. Ruttan  will have two sheets of ice. It  was also decided to join the Okanagan Curling Association and to  make an effort to have the annual bonspeii held at Enderby.  The Salmon Arm poultry association has concluded not to join  with the Northern Okanagan  Association in holding a winter  poultry show, but "it was thought  that some move should be made  that would enable owners to learn  the,point value of their birds."  It costs money to get a poultry  judge from the east as the Northern Okanagan poultry association proposes to do, and the Salmon Arm association will not  bear its share of the expence, but  prefers to "secure the services of  a judge who might be passing  through."  Police Magistrate Rosoman had  considerable work in his court  last week. The boss Hindu of  -the^Ender-by^^-indu-bu-nlvhouse.y-  was accused of stealing money  from the other Hindus. Mr.  Hopkins, Dominion Hindu interpreter, was brought in from Vancouver to take the testimony.  The hearing lasted all day Thursday, and Thursday night until 1  o'clock, and was concluded Friday afternoon. It was shown  by the testimony of the other  Hindus that the accused had been  systematically robbing them for  a long time. Attorney Rogers,  of Vernon, defended the accused,  while Constable Gardom prosecuted. Standing room was at a  premium in the dinky little court  room. The accused was remanded for trial on both charges.  A third charge is yet to be heard. ENDERBY, B. C, December 3, 1908  THE fact that every city official was absent from the  public  meeting  called  to  discuss ways and means for establishing a hospital on a small  scale in Enderby, would indicate  that there is about as much public  spirit in official Enderby as there  is in a cow's tail.   But it is not  so bad as it seems.    Mayor Bell  was attending a cold water convention in Vancouver, City Clerk  Rosoman, in the capacity of police magistrate,  was hearing a  Hindu trial, Alderman Jones was  in Vernon, and   the rest of the  aldermen indisposed or   out of  reach.   Perhaps they felt a canny  feeling    toward    hospitals  and  nurses, like unto the feeling of  a Peruvian Jew at Johannesburg  who was so ill that  a trained  nurse had to be sent for.   When  she came on duty,  her first remark was, "Now, I'll take your  temperature.'' To which the Jew  replied, "You can't.   Everything  is in my wife's name."  The meeting was attended by  Mrs. F. V. Moffet, Mrs. J. Leech-  Porter,   Mrs.   H.  Harvey,  Mrs.  Geo. Bell, Mrs.  A. A. Faulkner,  Mrs. W. Wood, Mrs.  W. Boyer,  and Miss Worthington;   H.   W.  Harvey,   P. Greyell,   Dr. Keith,  E. B.Saltwell and J. A. Morrison.  Mr.   Harvey   was   called to the  chair.    In view of the small attendance of men,  and the nonappearance of  any  of the city  officials, Mr. Harvy did a graceful thing in not asking the committee of ladies to make a statement of their case.  Mr. Greyell moved that a committee of ladies be appointed to  canvass the town and district, but  the ladies opposed the motion on  the grounds that they had already shown their good intentions  and wanted to see the men get  busy.  The ladies said they had no intention of giving up, and would  organize at once, with the intention of devoting the winter to  preparing bed-linen, etc., for the  comfort and care of the sick, for  they felt confident the citizens  would soon bestir themselves for  a hospital.  Mrs. Moffet kindly offered the  use of her home as a meeting  place for the ladies interested.  Dr. Keith offered an amendment to Mr. Greyell's motion, encouraging the ladies to proceed  with their organization, but asking that the meeting adjourn  subject to the call of the chair.  He said if the businessmen and  citizens generally did not take  enough interest in the matter to  attend the meeting, he did not  think the few present were justified in proceeding with the  business.  The amendment carried.  Mr. Saltwell, who had enough  public spirit in him to drive in  from Grindrod to attend the  meeting,    said   the   people  of  I  J. A.

DAKE, Jeweler & Optician, Cliff St.. Enderbv 4  WALKER'S WEEKLY,  Grindrod were strongly in favor  of the proposition of a hospital at  Enderby, and he believed the  district would contribute liberally  towards it maintenance.  Mrs. Faulkner was there to  convey to the meeting Mr. Faulkner's regrets at not being* able to  get down from his lumber camps,  and to state that Mr. Faulkner  would take out 65 or 75 tickets  for his men.  While no statement was made  to the meeting by the ladies or  on : behalf of the ladies, Mrs.  Leech-Porter had with her full  particulars as to the requirements  and approximate cost of furnishings for a small hospital.  Dr. Keith reported that a government grant of $500 a year is  made after the hospital is regularly equipped and in oqeration.  It is proposed to run the hospital on a system similar to those  of other small towns inthe province, i. e., issue hospital tickets  monthly or yearly, at $1 or $1.50  per month, or $10 or $12 per year,  these tickets to entitle the holder  to medical and hospital treatment  in case of sickness. It is customary for the laboring men and  businessmen of the town and district to carry a ticket, it being  considered the cheapest and best  insurance against sickness that  can be got.  There are many other ways in  which hospital funds are successfully raised. A writer in the  Stettler Independent tells some  of them: ' 'Let every church set  apart a special 'Hospital Sunday,'  let every citizen give his share  toward the hospital, let every  store and place of business be  provided with its little collection  box for the hospital, but do not  hang the box in such a place that  nobody sees it, let the young  folks, who do like a merry dance,  hop about two or three times  during the winter for the good of  the sick, let the fair ladies, who  do enjoy an innocent chat with  tea, cakes and ice cream spoil  their stomachs for the benefit of  the suffering, let the sweet girls  warble their melliflous songs for  the benefit' of those groaning  with pains, let the humorous boys  recite their funny poems for  those shouting in their delirious  dreams, let the music boys blow  their trumpets at a concert, the  old folks their pipes at a smoker,  and the necessary mammon of  iniquity will be soon on hand,������������������  without any trouble, but on the  contrary, with lots of amusement,  fun, and a general fine time."

Some of these fine days when  Jack Frost comes to Enderby he  is going to find a rink ready for  him to freeze. The past four  days and nights have been ice  makers, but no rink was ready.  The curling rink has not the  ground levelled; the open rink,  corner of Knight and George  streets, has a sound base but no  water on it, and P. Greyell has  just completed levelling. If the  frost had just stayed away a few  days longer, what skating we  should have!  The originally planned rink on  the corner of George and Knight  will be provided with dressing-  rooms and electric lights. The  manager hopes to have it ready  early next week. Mr. Greyell  has levelled off a piece of ground  just across Knight street, 75x140  feet, and hopes to lay the largest  sheet of rink jce ever skated upon in Enderby. He will light it  by electric lights, and will provide a dressing room. Just  across Belvedere street from Mr.  Grey ell's place, Mr. Ruttan proposes to erect the curling rink,  so, if they all make good, the  skaters of Enderby can have lots  of sport this winter.  a  Mr. Greyell states that he will  make no charge the first night.

When $1,500 or $2,000 a year  goes out of a town the size of  Enderby to procure hospital  treatment that could be provided  just as well at home, don't you  think it were time for the citizens to get together and endeavor  to find some way to stop the leak?  Did you never stop to consider  what it is costing Enderby to be  without the things  she ought to  have?

WALKER'S WEEKLY,  Bridge at Grindrod  The   Vernon News says:  "Messrs. Salt, Handcock, Emeny and Waddell were over  from Enderby on Monday to  interview Price Ellison^ M.  P.   P., regarding   a bridge  across the river at Grindrod  between Mara and Enderby  for which the residents of  that   section    are    asking.  They state that their settlement is greatly in need of  this  accommodation,  as at  present the farmers have to  haul   their  produce six  or  seven miles to get it to the  railway though there is   a  siding just across the river.  There are at present three  bridges spanning the Spallumcheen between Enderby  and Sicamous,  all of which  are expensive structures, as  draws are necessary to permit of river traffic,  but the  farmers of the neighborhood  of Grindrod are making energetic efforts to secure another to meet their requirements."  There are two general  traffic bridges over the Spallumcheen river, and one railway bridge. One of these  bridges is at Enderby and  one at Mara���������������������������ten miles distant. The petition for a  Jo_ldge^atJG_dn(iro_(Lis_reaso_i_  able, and should be allowed,  as the district tributary to  Grindrod is much held back  by the need of it. With the  railway station just across  the river,-the farmers of that  settlement have to haul their  produce six miles to Enderby, at a cost of $2.50 per ton  for hay, and other produce  in proportion. It is true,  the bridge asked for would  be costly, but the amount  would be well spent and  would come back to the government in a few years from  increased taxation upon the  improvements that would be  put on hundreds of acres of  land now idle, as a result of  better transportation facilities provided the district.  We hope Mr. Ellison will  not forget his words to the  Grindrod bridge committe in  his letter of Feb. 17th, 1908:  "I trust that in the near  future we will be able to convince the Chief Commissioner of the great necessity  for the bridge."  In his letter to Mr. Ellison  at that time the Chief Commissioner said in conclusion:  "I do not think it will be  possible to undertake the  proposition this year."  This year is nearly out,  and the peop e of Grindrod  are getting ready for 1909.  They feel that their request *  is a reasonable one, and will  ask to have it considered.

Andrew Fulton is always preparing* pleasant surprises for his  friends���������������������������and Andy has a host of  them in and about the Enderby  District. Mr. Fulton left for  Vancouver Monday afternoon.  Tuesday evening a message was  received by The Walker Press  which said: "Kind regards to all  from���������������������������Mr. and Mrs. A. Fulton."  On the same train that took  Mr. Fulton to Vancouver was  Miss Ethel Mortimer, a charming  young lady recently from Regina.  Friends who knew and happened  to be at the station when the  train pulled out, thought rice and  old shoes, but didn't throw any.  They will do that when Mr. and  Mrs. Fulton return to Enderby,  about the 12th.  Walker's Weekly joins with  the many friends in sending congratulations and wishing Mr. and  Mrs. Fulton much happiness in  their union. Mr. Fulton is too  well known Jto need any eulogy  here. His business experience  in Enderby, and his uniformly  square dealing and open minded  character have won the friendship of all. Mrs. Fulton is a  young lady of excellent face and  figure and during her residence  here has won the esteem of all  who have met her.

If  there is one thing the children���������������������������young and old���������������������������enjoy  more than giving, it is eating  and receiving.    We like to  hang the motto, "It is more  blessed to give than receive/'  upon the wall where we can  see it and have others see it,  but if you want to see the  sentiment  knocked   out  of  that motto, just change your  specs and   go   to ca public  Xmas tree.     The Enderby  Christmas   tree    entertainment is the  event  of the  year to the children.   They  look forward to it and work  hard to make it a success,  with the result that it is always ' 'the best ever."   This  year's program promises to  equal any ever given,  and  should not be missed by anyone who enjoys seeing arid  hearing the children at play.  The teachers are busily engaged in training the little  ones.    Here are some of the  carols they will sing:  Christmas Songs Are Ringing  The Christmas song is ringing  Throughout the world to-day;  Good tidings it is bringing,  And sending far away;  The old,  old Christmas story,  So precious and so sweet,  The joyful words of glory  That happy lips repeat.  The Christmas song is ringing,  When all the children meet,  Their Christmas off'ring bringing  To lay at Jesus' feet,  Their hearts are overflowing  With gratitude and love;  The songs of joy are growing  In praise to God above.  The Christmas song is ringing,  And never shall it cease;  The happy voices singing,  "Give all good-will and peace!"  Oh, join the song of glory.  ,  This merry Christmas morn,  And tell to all the story  That Jesus Christ is born.  Chorus:  "All glory in the highest  On earth, good will and peace!  All glory in the highest!  On earth,good-will and peace!"  I Think 1Hear the Sleighbells  Ringing  I think I hear the sleighbells ringing,  The merry, merry sleighbells ringing,  The bells of Santa Claus,  The bells of Santa Claus.  I think I hear the rein-deers prancing,  The funny little rein-deers prancing,  The team of Santa Claus,  The team of Santa Claus.  Now crack, crack, crack the whip,  Old Santa, make them swiftly fly,  Now crack, crack, crack the whip,  Old Santa make them fly.  I think I hear the -sleighbells ringing,  The merry, merry sleighbells ringing,  The bells of Santa Claus,  The bells of Santa Claus.  I think I hear the rein-deers prancing,  The funny little rein-deers dancing,  The team of Santa Claus,  The team of Santa Claus.  They're coming nearer, can't you hear them?  Oh, yes, they're nearer, can't you hear them?  The bells of Santa Claus,  The bells of Santa Claus?  The prancing reindeers kick and clatter  The funny little reindeers clatter,  The team of Santa Claus,  The team of Santa Claus.  Now crack, crack, crack the whip,  Old Santa, make them swiftly fly,  Now crack, crack, crack the whip,  Old Santa make them fly.  It is, it is the sleighbells ringing,  The merry, merry, sleighbells ringing,  And Santa Claus will come,  And Santa Claus will come.  It is, it is the rein-deers prancing,  The funny little rein-deers dancing,  And Santa Claus has come,  And Santa Claus has come.

The electric light company of  Armstrong is endeavoring to unload upon the municipality "for  $25,000, a plant that cost the  company $28,000.'' The town of  Armstrong favors taking the  plant over, but the district���������������������������  which pays by far the greater  proportion of the taxes, does not  feel inclined to load upon itself  another white elephant to help  the town out. Salmon Arm is  in a similar predicament. The  town wants a water system in-;  stalled, and proposes to bond the  municipality for $25,000 to instal  it. The farmers, who pay the  greater proportion of taxes, and  would receive no benefit from the  expenditure, object to the outlay.  Trained Men Win  THE trained man is never  out of work.
