T  FROM ONE MAN'S POINT OF VIEW  IN his remarks at the meeting of the  Curling Club, last Thursday evening,  Jr. Hale hit the nail squarely on the  head when he said the citizens of Enderby would like to see the City Council dp  something exciting just for once. Everyone is ready to admit that the position of  mayor or alderman in a small town is a  mean one'. The man wrho accepts either  position must be prepared for much unpleasantness and little honor. And we are  quite sure Mr. Hale recognizes this. But  what Mr. Hale meant was this: The people  would like to see the Council take the initiative in something.   A dilly-dally, lacka-  HERE is one place in British Columbia  always dear to the heart of one who  has enjoyed the pleasures of its  charm. That place is New Denver, the  Lucerne of North America, situated on the  Slocan Lake, with majestic mountains  standing high upon all sides, and the low  lands.and plateaus planted in orchards of  luscious fruits. The day is coming when  New Denver will enjoy annual visits from  thousands of pleasure-seekers and will be  the home of wealth and refinement.  A special number of J. J. Atherton's paper, the Mining Review, recently published,  presents, in. an. artistic manner the many  points of interest in and about New Denver,  showing the magnitude of the mining and  lumber resources, the fruit orchards and  their possibilities, the excellence of climate,  and,the grandeur of mauntain, lake and  glacier scenery. "A Pioneer," tells the  way to ".Health, Sport and Fqrtnne," R.  T. Lowery, gives some breezy reminiscences  | of the early days; J. C. Harris tells of a  | trip to the glacier, and Jay Jay fills in the  | balance with descriptive articles on the in-  j dustries that are contributing to the up-  ! building of the District.

By. the enterprising  public spirit that has characterized this lodge from its inception,  Enderby is given as fine a dance  hall as can be found in the Valley,  and an amusement hall quite up  to the average. Enderby has  never had a more enjoyable dance  than the opening ball given by  the Knights last Friday. The  dance netted the lodge, $100, so  it may be judged how many were  present. The hall has been newly floored, making it excellent for  dancing, and is artistically decorated. The supper provided by  the Pythian Sisters,  pleased all.  These are the gladdest:days of  the year, when we get happiness  by giving it.

Last July Dr. Keith started to  talk curling to the boys. Dr.  Keith is a benefactor to the race.  He gives medicine when the condition of his patient, mental and  physical, requires it, but he believes in the philosophy of health,  not sickness, and tries to point  men in the way of health by the  way of Nature���������������������������plenty of healthful exercise and less stuffy bedrooms and supper-table, stuffing.  He has worked hard to get the  Curling Club started, and succeeded in placing 40 names on  the membership- roll at $10 each.  The matter of rink was settled  six weeks ago, but at the last  moment Mr. Ruttan, who was to  build it, had to disappoint the  club. Business called him from  Enderby. When the club was  ready to name its skips it found  it had no rink. Something had  to be done, and done quickly. A  meeting was called. The proposition was made that the  club build its own rink on the j  city recreation grounds was decided upon. But it could not be  foot plank walk down the centre,  and will be provided with a room  stove-heated. l  Reeves-Laing Nuptials  Arthur Reeves is receiving the  warm hand-shake of his many  Enderby friends to-day.

And as I listen to their j  names read from the Cradle Roll 1 j  wonder not that God looks on and;  weeps.  ] look again into the babe's eyes  and see there infinitely more of Gocl  reflected than I can see reflected  from   the  good   clergyman  who  pre  sumes to pronounce judgment upon  the infant, and I wonder again. 1  wonder if the preacher is the oracle  of God and knoweth whereof he  speaks, or if perchance it may not be  that he himself hath been led into  the wrong channel of thought since  his name was entered upon the  cradle roll. May it not be that in  his infancy he was taught (as you  and 1) the old, old story of "man's  fall" and the resulting damnation of  all mankind, himself included. Such  being the case, I contend then that  he, as a child, had his mind warped  before he could know the meaning of  life, of death, of good, of bad, of  this, that and the other. He was  damned in his own mind before he  could speak the words of his heart���������������������������  damned before he could know why���������������������������  damned by the mother as she was  damned before him. And as I think  of this possibility,. I feel another  thought creeping upon me: may it  not be that he���������������������������remembering the  awful lessons that have been drilled  into him since infancy, and, never  for one moment questioning them���������������������������  may it not be that he really knows  less about it than the infant, "so fresh  from God."  I look into the infant's eye again  and there is reflected that simplicity  and trustfulness which can be found  no where else and in no other living  thing. There is an intelligence, too,  that we cannot account for; an intelligence that is not of this world���������������������������  an intelligence that is gradually lost  as the child takes on, or grows into,  the mental atmosphere of its surroundings.  I do not say it is so, for I do not  know, but may it not be that the  infant comes into the world clothed  in the spirit of the Soul of God, and  that as it grows older, the Spirit of  God is lost ,in the mixup of the contending spirits of the world, which  crowd in upon one even before we  are conscious of them. When the  infant hears nothing but the jangling  of contending spirits of the world,  it is not surprising that he grows  into the spirit of his environment-  He knows not how it cometh upon  'him���������������������������is not conscious of its presence  ���������������������������he knows of no oi_er presence���������������������������  because those about him know of no  other presence, and cannot see in him  the Spirit of the Soul in which he  came, they themselves having grown  out of it and into the cloud of worldly intelligence that must be expressed  to be understood.

C, December 17, 1908  that shineth in the infant's face  comes not from without, but from  within. And, the child, not. having  any earthly intelligence, what other  intelligence can it ha-ve but the intelligence of the Soul of God in and  through which it has its being.  If, then, the child is brought into  the world with the light of God's  Soul speaking through it, at what  time in its earthly existence does it  fall under the ban of the church?  Surely not while the Spirit of God  prevails. Now, if the Spirit of God  shineth in the child at birth, and  God is all powerful, why then is tb*  child permitted to grow out of the  Spirit of Light into the Spirit of  Darkness?,  Doesn't it seem-that we have deceived ourselves.

The child thinketh no evil,  either of himself or others. He  therefore giveso expression to naught  but good. The reflection of God  through him is clear. Not until he  begins to take on the spirit of his  worldly environment is the reflection  clouded. Then by degrees it vanishes and there comes that hardness  of visage in which there is none of  God.

C. 8  WALKER'S WEEKLY,  xx  :xx  Will You Join Arbor Day Movement?  j  WHEN travelling through  Southern California, a  beauty of landscape and profusion of trees, flowers and  foliage meets the eye at  every   turn.      Perhaps   no  ness is nobody's business.  We all might be of one mind  as to the good of Arbor Day,  and yet years of useless talk  might be indulged in with-  ^jto make a start, Walker's  | Weekly has been busy for a  month or more getting data  to place before our people,  and next week will be able  to give approximately the  number of trees we will have  for street planting on our  first publicly observed Arbor  Day^   We   hope   none   of  NO. 1 NORTHWEST  out anything being accom-  country in the world can plished. And, so, in order' our Enderby readers will run  show such floral beauty. The  smallest town is not less  particular about its street-  tree planting than the largest city. And there, a large  proportion of the trees set  out by the public are planted  by the school children. On  two Arbor Days the school  children of Los Angeles alone  planted upwards of 22,000  ornamental trees on the  streets and play grounds of  the city, under the direction  of their teachers and assistants. It is an excellent way  to interest and instruct in a  practical way the boys and  girls in the planting and care  of the trees. It is all carried  on under the supervision of  the city's park commissioner  and his assistants.  What say you to the inauguration of a town.Arbor  Day in Enderby.

When we get our  Board of Trade established  the matter will be placed in  its hands.    But  until then  Walker's Weekly will carry  on   the   campaign  without  waiting for  or asking the  acquiesence of anyone, and  we ask all to lend such assistance as they can to make  this early spring boost a big  boost    for   Enderby.     Six  months ago, the city council  asked Mayor .Bell to move in  . : the matter of  a  Board of  Trade for Enderby.     When  spoken to before election, Mr.  Bell wished to delay it until  the elections were over.; but  he would call a meeting before the end of  the year.  Christmas week i_ upon us  and nothing can now be done  in the matter until after the  holidays. . A    meeting; is  promised early  in the new  year; but whether i; comes  or not, let us pu?h the campaign for street trees.  The suggestion- of Aid.  Lawes, at tile last meeting  of the council, looking to action by the council; in the  matter of regulations, etc.,  indicates that a by-law will  'soon be forthcoming which  will have for its object the  ___^^_i_P!S__i_1������������������. of the trees  Sask-alta  Steel  e  n  e varieties advisable  to plant.  It is the purpose of' this  paper to start a subscription  list, showing the number or  trees each signer will give  for Arbor Day street planting. A committee will be  asked for later to superintend the planting of the  trees. It is believed if the  citizens and friends subscribe  the trees, the city should  bear the cost of protecting  the trees by furnishing tree  boxes. Thus each tree would  be uniformly boxed.- ���������������������������  Fuller details will be given  next week.  BROILING MEAT & TOASTING  BREAD.  One way produces evenly broiled meat and  evenly toasted bread without taxing the  patience of the housewife. This way is represented by "Sask-alta" Range. The reason:  ''Sask-alta'VRange has an Automatic Lift Top  (Patented) in addition to regular  Broiler Door; and this team works  for the operator instead of making  her work.  ,   The "Sask-alta" Way       1  Another way produces  unevenly broiled meat and  unevenly toasted bread  and taxes the patience of  the housewife.

Barrows, foreman of the  saw room of the A. R. Rogers  Lumber Co. ���������������������������, had a harrowing experience while on a deer hunt in  the Mabel Lake District last  week. He had had an all-day  chase, and was returning to camp  by a blaze-trail. Suddenly the  muscle of one oihislegs cramped;  then the muscles on either side  of the groin. The pain was excruciating. He could not move.  Fortunately he was under a. small  pine tree and he threw one arm  about it to support himself. All  night long he stood in that position, not knowing what moment  the pain would bear him down.  So intense was the agony that the  perspiration ran down his legs  and' filled his shoe packs. He  feared the water would freeze  in his boots, and with his free  hand managed to draw his knife  and cut a hole in the toe of each  boot to let the water out. Twice  during the night he quenched his  thirst with loose snow which he  was able, to scrape off of a windfall near his hand.- When the  day broke he still stood as he was  caught by the cramp 14 hours  before. He had not moved in  his tracks six inches. With the  break of day he felt an impulse  to move. After half an hour of  painful struggling he managed  to reach the trail where he met  a rescue party. A walk of two  miles brought him into camp.  Manicure   sets  at  your   own  4)Ei.ce_at^J-.^A.JJ)-akeIs ���������������������������  A FEW S. C.

Here is a good  game for the boys  md girls to play.   The players sit in a  row  or circle,  a   leader  haviug  beeu  chosen,   who  sits  at  the end  of  the  row or in the middle of the circle.    He  begins the game by saying. "I have a  hen," and the second player repeats it  after, him  to his  left  hand  neighbor,  who in tuni repeats it to the player ou  his  left   until  it   has gone  the  round,  when the last player turns to the player on  his  right  and asks.  "Has she  feathersV"    This question goes all the  way back to the leader, who answers,  "She  has  feathers."    This answer  is  taken up by the second player until it  lias gone around, when the last player  asks, "Can she walk?"  When (his question reaches the leader he answers.  "She can  walk." aud  then  follow   in  due course the  question. "How does she walk?" and the  answer,   "Wiggledy-woggledy,   wiggle-  dy-woggledy."  As the leader gives this  answer.he imitates with his hands the  'walk  of a  chicken,  and  each  player  does the same as  he answers.    The  next question is. "Can she crow?" followed by the answer, "She can crow,"  which must be accompanied in every  case by an imitation of the crow of a  rooster.   The great object of the game  is to have it played throughout without   laughter,     it  any   player   laughs  while   he   is   asking  or  answering   a  question   or   if   he   makes   any   mistake in the words, he must pay a forfeit.  /,  I.C.S.  ���������������������������\  Trained Men Win  THE trained rr.an is never  out of work.
