Address all communications to-   THE WALKER PRESS, Enderby, B. C.  Pa says:   "Th' only new leaf worth turning over   has  written across it these words: BE KIND."  FROM ONE MAN'S POINT OF VIEW  THE old year has gone, the new is here.  To all the world we wish loads of happiness and prosperity and enough  pain and sorrow to make the happiness  taste good. What we have made of the  old year largely depends upon the conception we had of our mission when we entered upon it 365 days ago. If we entered  upon the new year then in that indifferent,  lackadaisical way the chances are 1908  leaves us little better than it found us.  Our progress has not been gauged by luck,  chance, environment, nor what we have  suffered, but by the measure of sincerity  and the amount of energy we were prepared to put into the things of life with  which we had to do. If we have failed,  that is nothing. If we have given up,  that is hell. Rich may that man be who  has lost all but his nerve in .the.panic_tha.t-  has brushed so many men from their feet.  Poor may the rich man be, who, though  safe and smug from the sheriff, hasn't the  courage of his convictions and the nerve to  give expression to the soul within. Let us  forget the old year and its trials and tribu-!  lations. If we are growing they have been j  stepping stones to our advancement. Look  the New Year squarely in the face. Do  not sidestep, cut out the shuffle gait and  the weathercock. Drive hard and fast  straight for the goal you are aiming at. You  might stumble and fall, but up and at it  again!  I shall never forget this vim-builder.  Read it! Digest it! Take it into the New  Year with you! Apply it personally.  And don't you think it would help us to  apply it as a community?   Paste it in your  hat; post it upon your door post; shout it  from the housetop. Sing it, yell it, talk it,  dream it, live.it!  Did you tackle that trouble that came your way  With a resolute heart and cheerful?  Or hide your face from the light of day  With a craven soul, and fearful?  Oh, a trouble's a ton, or a trouble's an ounce,  Or a trouble is what you make it;  It is n't the fact that you're hurt that counts,  But only how did you take it!  You are beaten to earth?   Well, well; what's that!  Come up with a smiling face!  It's nothing against you to fall down flat,  But to lie there; that's disgrace!  The harder you're thrown, the higher you bounce,  Be proud of your blackened eye!  It isn't the fact that you're licked that counts,  But how did you fight, and why?  And though you be done to the.death, what then!  If you battled as best you could!  If you played your part in the world of men,  The Critic will call it good!  Death comes with a crawl, or comes with a pounce;  And though he be slow or spry,  It isn't the fact that you're dead that counts,  But only how did you die!  NORTHERN OKANAGAN will have  a splendid Winter Poultry Show.  This is now assured. The liberal  cash prizes offered by the Association, and  the lavish special prizes donated by the  business people of Enderby and Armstrong  should cause our poultrymen to get down  to business in earnest. We are proud of  the business men of Enderby. They have  donated special prizes, cash and otherwise,  to the value of $85. The merchants of  .Armstrong^have^contributedliberally,^���������������������������We-  shall have a special prize list amounting to  $125.00 before it is complete. Did a poultry association ever start better? Did the  first poultry show ever offer stronger inducements? Let it never again be said that  Enderby "can't" doanything. Our poultry-  men must now "make good/' It is up to  them to bring up the birds. They are here.  Fetch them out. We shall have a poultry  judge the best in Canada; our prizes will  compare with those of much larger places;  we shall have a show hall that cannot be  beat, and an enthusiastic, liberal public to  visit the show. And, what is more, we  shall have the birds on hand to show. Push  aside the "Can't-be~diders," boys, and  squeeze in. Opportunity knocks at the  door of our breeders.

The date  previously.set,. January 26-27-28,  was found to conflict with the  date of the winter show at Edmonton, where Dr. Bell is to  judge, after the Calgary exhibit.  It is extremely fortunate that  the association is permitted to  use the excellent K. of P. hall on  the occasion of the first show. It  is well-lighted, well ventilated,  and, situated as it is in a brick  building, ensures the owners of  birds against the fowl being exposed to overheating or cold.

Waby  xx:  xzxzr  I would like, as president of  the Northern Okanagan Poultry  Association, on behalf of the  members, to thank the tradesmen and citizens of Enderby for  the hearty support given when  called upon to assist by donating  special prizes.  We poultrymen of the northern part of the Okanagan, especially, are expected now to make  the coming show a success and  bring out our birds in as good  shape as possible. Enderby has  come forward and given freely a  long list of special prizes, and  some especially have donated  handsomely. With three silver  cups and a watch and numerous  cash and other prizes, besides  the regular prizes and a chance  s bill to g;et more, we have asj  good a prize list as any, and one  which will compare favorably  with the larger shows.  Donators will naturally want  us to put our best foot forward  and make a good, clean, creditable exhibit.  To begin with we would ask  all members to make a good showing. If you don't want to enter  all, make a few nice coops and  put a few specimens on exhibition. Grit, chaff, water and  feed will be provided free of  charge, and a superintendent will  always be on  hand to attend to  over  have ^,,j ������������������_,������������������.���������������������������._   __s  combs;    broken   wing   and   tail  feathers are better left in now as  the time is too 'short to pull them.  If your bird  has scaly legs, dip  them in coal  oil  and hold them  there   for three   minutes;  next  day put on   some sulphur  ointment.    This will clean off all old  scales and bring out nice colored  new ones.    For two days before  the show wash the legs in soap  and water and polish well.    Put  on legbancl nice and neat.   Combs  frozen   should  be  dressed with  turpentine to take off dry skin  and  rubbed with vasaline each  day  if   possible.    The   last day  wash  in warm soft water  and  soap; rub gently and dry with a  soft cloth, then rub on vasaline.  Go carefully over your specimens  and pull any off-colored feathers,  such as black or white in barred  rocks, etc.    I would   not advise  washing unless you have had experience  or could  get   practice  beforehand.   A better way would  be to take a wet cloth and dampen  the feathers.    Put your bird in a  coop# in the sun  or near a stove  and it will soon  do the washing  sufficient to make it look much  better.    This   in white varieties  will help quite a lot.    If you wish  to go to a little more trouble you  could polish spurs in male birds;  them  and_ assist in every way j wash mantles, earlobes and comb.  possible.

Weight does not apply  to leghorns and several of the  Mediterranean breeds. Be very  careful and don't break any flight  or main tail feathers, as these  are the chief disqualifying feathers and loss of each one means a  cut of from one-half to two  points. This is about all that can  be done in a general way. White  earlobes can be brought back to  their color quite a lot by rubbing  in zinc ointment. If you have a  bird which gets into a scrap,  take it while bleeding and apply  salt butter.  Annual Meeting  The annual meeting of the Spallumcheen Farmers' Institute will be held  in the K. of P.

They know that the  young manj is a restless animal,  he must have  some thing to do  and that the want of it leads him  astray.

I had  not heard much about this mine  until I saw your news item, but  there is certainly lots of mineral  in the mountains in this section  of the country. . {#������������������������������������������������������"���������������������������  I notice in the Vernon News  and sometimes in the Armstrong  Advertiser little items about a  deer having been killed somewhere or other. Mara, I believe,  can beat most places in that regard. This season I killed two  caribou, (one having a magnificent  set of antlers) as well as two  deer. The Graham boys killed  three deer, and a guest of Mr.  Kellett succeeded in killing another.'"There ;r was very good  fishing and wild-fowl shooting all  fall for anyone who wanted it.  By-the-bye, I saw fifteen caribou in a bunch the time I killed  my two animals,   and this   was  within  a day's   walk of    Mara  lOTtioTr^    IRA C.

We have decided to make our prices and quality appeal to you, as we know that all business has to stand  on this basis. We are confident that if you will compare same with others you will find no occasion to  complain. In fact we are not going to consider what  goods are being sold for elsewhere, but conscientiously  mark every article at the lowest price it can be sold  for and still leave a margin for us to continue on in  business.  We do not ask you to take our word, but for you  to give us an opportunity to 'make good."  Yours for Peace, Happiness and  Prosperity for 1909  _____  *
