FROM ONE MAN'S POINT OF VIEW  IN organizing a Board of Trade last Friday evening, the citizens of Enderby  moved in the direction of the most  good to the greatest number. There was  no uncertain sound at the  meeting,  and  Barnes sounded the key-note of the meeting when he said that Enderby needed an  organized body through which to work in  order to bring forward the advantages of  the District. It was not to belittle the  advances made to say that we had been  asleep to the magnificent possibilities of  our bench lands and valley slopes. There  are thousands of acres of the best fruit  lands about Enderby which require to be  settled upon and developed. We can gain  nothing by permitting them to remain undeveloped, and we have had it proved to  us that we can do nothing towards settling  up these lands without having some kind  oi an organization through which to operate, This was the unanimous opinion of  the meeting.  knowledge them and set to work to remedy them than to hide them and labor  under the delusion that we are all right.  We are not all right. Neither are we  all wrong. But we are some wrong. We  bring it about in this way: Supposing a meeting is held to consider a proposition of  public importance: the comfort of our sick,  for example. Not a member of the city  council attends the meeting, and the cry,  "can't do it now," is raised. About the  same time a letter from a private business  institution in Vernon comes before the city  council asking a donation of $25. The  city fathers promptly grant it, though  they have to borrow the money at 8 per  cent to do it.    Honestly, now, is this just?  no opposition to the movement. Magistrate is it reasonable?

I  {{y DO not think we should speak ill of the  day of small things," said Mayor  Bell, in his remarks at the citizens'  meeting Friday evening. And with him  all will agree. But there is such a thing  as dwelling so long upon the day of small  things that we miss "the joy of all joys,  the joy of going on." It is not wise to  sit snug and smug in the robes of our little  accomplishments and see the chariot of  bigger things go by. We must stop the  chariot and tackle the big things. The big  things require effort, and effort is one of  the things Indifference religiously objects  to.    She lazily   yawns,   wearily rubs her  ET nobody take  parison.

'. :���������������������������  V.T 4  WALKER'S WEEKLY,  (By Percy Rosoman.)  With the advent of the first snowfall and heavy frosts the government  road-making in Enderby district has  come to a close for the season. This  summer Wm. Hancock was appointed  as foreman; and the appointment  was a wise one for it is pretty well  known all through our district thai  .Mr. Hancock is an expert at. the art  of road-making. As soon as the season opened road work began to. buzz  as it has has not buzzed for some  years, and on every side we heard  expressions of satisfaction that' 'Hancock  was back on the roads again."  One   of. the   first   good   pieces   of  work  was the widening of that narrow strip of road (with its dangerous  drop-off   on   the   lower   side)    which  runs   between   ^lr.   Collins  and  Geo.;  Polkard's  farms  on   the   Mara   road. |  Everyone  knows  how  awkward   and ;  "even   dangerous  it  was  to  meet  an- :  son and Mr. Ruttan. After this a  cross-road was made half a mile long  to benefit Wm. Hancock and Wm. j  .Jones and give two other farmers an I  outlet. Next a cross-road was made :  between Bernard Rosoman's and '���������������������������  Claude Handcock's places to benefit [  Dan McA'Ianus, Fred Folkard and. i  Gerald Neve. Then the cross-road '���������������������������  running between Jack Lambert and j  C. Handcock. commonly known as j  Billy Monk's road, was repaired and i  straightened and 250 feet of bridges!  n  built on it. The canyon road was j  next patched up and repaired, and a \  new bridge built about 8 0 ft. long. \  Next move was to build a new piece  of road i V2 miles in length to give a \  safe and easy way out for Wm. Alien,  Dick Blackburn and Messrs. Gaylord, i  Miller, Pye, Brash and Blair in place;  of the dangerous road they had to j  use before. There remains about j  one mile of this road to be yet com-!  other   rig   or   wagon   when   driving   pleted through the Indian reserve as  along that narrow strip, and expressions of thankfulness were heard  from a great number of travellers at  seeing this piece of road widened and  gravelled. Then two miles of the  Mara road from the bridge out were  gravelled  and  parts graded  clown  to  a hitch occurred with the Indians  and the matter is not yet settled.  After this 4 new bridges were built  averaging f>5 ft. each and one bridge  repaired along Mabel Lake road.  Then a move was made back to  Salmon   Arm   road  and   two  bridges,  A Merry, Merry  Christmas  to ALL  S.  erby  _  M.  PT  _  there  make a good surfaced road. Next, j aiui a clliVGrt were made  and we might say the most urgent j averaging 2f_ ft. each, and another  piece of road work at the time was j move t0 Deep Creek where six fine  (.lie up-river Enderby-Mabel lake j liew bridges were built and one  road   (quag-mire)   which   was   made \ bridge on Hungerford's road, Salmon  Now that Enderby has a Board  ! of Trade, everyone should give  their name to F.

Then a move was made to  Waliei'-Cardner's-house near Salmon  Arm and a fine 'piece of road wa^  hii ill.., between the mnnici palil y and  government roads about half a mile  long. Afer this a fine-piece of per-  feclty new road' one mile or more in  length was made and graded near  the Gardner'and Harper properties.

Evans,KSIRMAKER Enderby ENDERBY, B.':C��������������������������� December 24, 1908  Hats Off to Mr. DeHart, of the Orchard City of Okanagan  F. R. E. DeHart, of Kelowna,  winner of prizes to the value of  $4,370, 2 silver medals, 2 handsome cups and 2 diplomas, at the  National Apple Show at Spokane,  returned to his home last Friday,  and was royally received. While  the train was standing at Enderby, Mr. DeHart took occasion to  say that Enderby could raise as  good apples as his prize winners,  if our fruit growers would make  the effort. Speaking of his phenomenal success the Vernon  News says:  Once more the  whole Province of  British   Columbia,   and   particularly  the Okanagan Valley, has occasion to  cry ''Hats off to Kelowna!" The  value of this great triumph for Okan  agan fruit as a means of advertising  the district cannot be overestimated.  The Board of Trade of Kelowna has  presented the Okanagan with a  Christmas Box of inestimable value;  for the fame of this magnificent display will travel far and wide until it  penetrates evrey corner of the land.  It is something of which every British Columbian can speak with the "enthusiasm bred of pardonable and  legitimate pride; and it will do more  to turn the eyes of home-seekers and  fruit buyers towards the Okanagan  than anything that has ever before  happened in the history of "The  L;ind   of Fruit and  Sunshine." WALKER'S WEEKLY,  A  MEETING called to consider Curling" Club business last Friday evening,  in the city office, was, at the request of Mayor Bell, turned into  a meeting to discuss the matter  of a Board of Trade. Mr/-Lawes  acted as chairman of the meeting  and Mr. Rosoman secretary.  Mr. Bell stated the case as he  saw it. Other speakers followed,  each and all favoring the organization of a Board. Mr. Barnes  said, with all the thousands of  acres of land about Enderby, the  25 miles of valley land, reaching  from Enderby to Mabel Lake,  and the bench lands in closer  proximity to Enderby, with all  these in need of settlers, and settlers looking for just such Jand,  he could not understand how anyone could hold a doubt as to the  wisdom of organizing a Board of  Trade.  Dr. Keith expressed himself  strongly in favor of the proposition. He was sure Enderby had  been adversely advertised long  enough, and if a Board of Trade  would assist in overcoming the  evil effects of such adverse advertising, he thought we should  lose no time in organizing.  ^^Cfty^Ctel^lc^RosomaTi"stroiTgly-  enclorsed the movement. He  felt that in inducing settlers to  invest in property in this phenomenal district, we were doing  them a great kindness.  W. E. Banton spoke along the  same lines. He thought the  time had come when we should  get into working order such an  organization.  W. T. Holtby recited his experience with similar organizations, and hoped to see the meeting take the necessary steps to  organize.  Robt. Peel said we should not  object to criticism, but should  admit our faults when pointed  out and set. to work to find away1  to improve our town and district.  A. Fulton thought we should  wake up to our advantages and  get busy with a Board of Trade.  A. Sutcliffe moved that we  organize the Enderby Board of  Trade, with an annual membership fee not to exceed $5.  The motion carried unanimously  and a membership roll was drawn  up and 17 names were at once  enrolled.  A committee of five, with F.  H. Barnes as chairman, was  named to solicit members and  draft resolutions and by-laws  regulating the organization.  This committee will report to  a general meeting to be held at  the call of the chair. In the  meantime the committee will be  busy getting members. Mr.  Barnes has the work in charge.  Thus far, all to whom he has  spoken have gladly subscribed  their names. Everybody feels  that the right step has been  taken, and there is a feeling of  confidence in the success of the  organization, and through it the  settling up of our idle acres.  It is the intention to keep the  membership open to the farmers  of the District as well as the  trader,    professional   man   and  Arbor Day Planting  Without opposition the .suggestion looking to the inauguration of Arbor Day street tree  planting in Enderby is making  head.

C, December 24, 1908  POULTRY AS A SIJ)E LINE.  In writing anything on poultry a  man sometimes lays himself open to  a good deal of criticism, especially  in a locality which has had very little to do with fancy poultry. Go  where you will the cry is, "why can't  we get enough eggs for home consumption?" Does it not seem as  though there was room for a little  thought along this line, when the  Enderby Hotels find it almost impossible to get enough good fresh eggs.  They experience no difficulty in getting so-called fresh eggs, but the  trouble is, with one or two exceptions, to get the real article. Packed  eggs seem to be sold (judging from  reports), and the trouble seems to  be the packers' inability to make a  job of it.  Now,   fellow   poultrymen,   here   is  wliere we are apt to strike a snag.  Not a week ago a prominent citizen  told me he bought a dozen so-called  fresh eggs and five of them were bad.  Result,  the man who sold them for  fresh  is  a  marked   man.     Remedy:  learn   how   to   pack,   or   make   your  hens lay in winter.    Remember, the  man who once sells eggs of the above \  mentioned   quality  will   find  a  good j  many years pass cwev his head before j  he regains the confidence of his cus-!  tomer,   especially   if   the   customer j  pays 40 or 5 0 cents a dozen. I  Now, as to getting eggs in winter,  which is the most desirable way, and  one  in   which   the  man   who   has  it  properly learned need never be afraid  of the wolf at the door. . Here in the  Okanagan Valley Ave have a wonderful poultry country.    I have said his  so many times that I am afraid some  will    think   perhaps   I   am   carried  away, without careful consideration.  But results with our own fowl and  careful   observation   bears   out   the  statement.     We ourselves have been  in the habit of using trap nests and  thought   we   had   a   good   strain   of  layers.    In Manitoba we could count  on pullets laying in 4, 5 or 6 months  and lay well.    Here our pullets commenced in 3 months and 3 weeks and  nearly   every   pullet   we   hatched   in  April   has   laid   and   quit   to   moult.  This means that we must hatch Mediterraneans a little later, or hold them  back.  Now a word in regard to the show  we are going to hold in Enderby.  This is no colour scheme, but an effort to put the poultry breeders on a  better footing and create a demand  for high-class fowl, bred in the Enderby district. It will only be a  short time when Vernon and all the  surrounding towns will be holding  winter shows, and as a natural consequence people in the vicinity will  be   breeding   Pure   Bred   instead   of  non-clesciipt fowl.

C, December 24, 1908  9  MOIMOL   TRAP   NESTS.  The .Model Incubator Company of  Toronto has solved the problem of a  perfect Trap Nest. The Model Recording Trap Nest records eight  times, or in other words for eight  hens. Each time a hen goes in to  lay she is locked in, so that no two  hens can be in the one nest at the  same time. Again, when the hen has  laid she passes out and in doing so  unlocks nest ready for, next hen.  She also takes a ring which remains  on  her neck.    Her egg passes into a  revolving nest, the number of which  corresponds to that of ring, so thai  there is no fussing with hens in daytime, or watching when they have  laid- .to liberate them.  All you have to do is put your nest  into pen and at night go and remove  part the eggs are in, take rings off  hens' necks, and compare them with  eggs laid.  At  no  time  is  egg 'visible  to  the  hen, as each egg laid  rolls into one  of the eight compartments in bottom j  of nest box. The next hen that, goes j  in  sets it to an  empty compartment j  How a Sask-alta  thermometer  earns its money.  By indicating when oven is ready for  baking. By cutting out the upeeping"  into oven. By showing on its face what  is going on in the oven. By saving  "door-opening" heat.   By substituting  certainty for chance  in  baking   results.  "Sask-alta" range  thermometer was  tested for six months  before one range was  sold. '''Sask-alta"  thermometer is to  the housewife what  the compass is to the  ship captain.  and so on until eight hens have goen  through. On ihe eighth passing out  if is doubly locked back and front,  so that nothing can get into nest  until operator sets it again.  Again, this .nest is invaluable to  any poultry , keeper for egg-eating  hens. We have all had some experience with that class of hen in early  spring, and know the annoyance of  losing the most valuable eggs both  for setting and selling when eggs are  of far more value than later in the  season.  nox'TS von the iiomk  A writer in the Chicago .1 on run 1  brieily says:  Don't, be afraid of a little fun at  home. Don't shut your house lest,  the sun should fade your carpets,  and your-hearts, lost a hearty laugh  shake down some of the musty cobwebs  there.  Therefore let. the fire burn brightly  at night and make the homestead delightful willi all these little arts that,  parents so perfectly understand.  Don't repress "the buoyant spirits of  your children; half an hour's merriment round ihe lamp and fireside of  home blots out the remembrance of  many a care and annoyance during  the day. and the best safeguard they  can take with them into the world is  the influence of a bright little sanctum.
