When in doubt, saw vcoocl.  n:  :n  d:  FROM ONE MAN'S POINT OF VIEW fi    Q  yT should be very gratifying to everyone  having the advancement of the Enderby  District'at heart, to note the excellent  feeling which prevails in connection with  the newly established Board of Trade, the  Winter Poultry Show, and in civic matters.  Surely, 1909 starts well for the District.  . A membership of 43 in the Board of  Trade, ,and with energetic officers at its  head, augurs well for this important body.  A properly constituted and well managed  Board of Trade is of more importance in a  community's advancement than all other  civic bodies combined, for through it all  differences are harmonized, and all classes  are put to work. Under the able management of the officers elected on Monday  night, the Board will accomplish much for  the Enderby District. While perhaps the  most important position on the Board, and  the one upon which the greatest responsibility rests, is that of secretary-treasurer,  _emiiyjuembx_^  as much an integral part of the organiza- desire to see the town adv.  tion as any other man in it, and that its  fullest usefulness will not be developed unless each member enters actively into the  work before us. We must get away from  the idea that two or three men are to do  all the work and bear the brunt of the organization's trials. The officers must of  necessity sacrifice much of their personal  time and pleasure to carry on the work,  and they draw no remuneration���������������������������no more  than the humblest member in it���������������������������and it is  but fair to ask that every member contribute his best efforts to the work to be undertaken. A Board of Trade i* en- -.rntially  a public spirited organization. We give of  our individual efforts to bene_it tha community at large.    In a larger sense we are  contributing to our own advancement, it  is true, for no individual can give his best  to society and the community at large and  not get back more than he gave. It is when  we selfishly try to gain by miserly hoarding  the little we have that we lose.  The liberal spirit that has characterized  the attitude of our business people toward  the Winter Poultry Show, has demonstrated  how ready they are to assist anything that  has merit and the courage of its convictions.  A special prize list aggregating $150 shows  better than words that the hearts of our  businessmen are with the farmers, if they  will but show the goods. It now remains  for them to do so. Certainly the poultry-  men cannot ask for better prizes than have  been given, nor more of them. Apropos of  this, it has been suggested that a banquet  be given on the night of the second day of  the show. We shall have with us Dr. A.  W. Bell, of Winnipeg, editor of the Northwest Poultryman, and one of the foremost poultry judges in Canada. It would  be an opportune time to bring all together  and enable the expert, the businessman,  the farmer and poultryman and the novice  to get a clearer conception of each other's  aims, objects and methods in dealing with  this important branch of the farming industry. Much good would result and we  hope to see the banquet held. ���������������������������  In civic matters, the addition of R. E.  Peel and D. T. Forbes to the CityJ^uncU..  a stronger  vance. New  blood means new ideas brought into civic  matters, out of which is sure to come a  progressive policy. Few towns the size  of Enderby can boast of as complete a  system for handling municipal business as  City Clerk Rosoman has established. His  annual reports are studies in thoroughness and completeness of detail, and we  feel that it is not too much to hope this  year to see the same thoroughness exercised  by the Council in dealing with questions  of public improvements: street work, tree  planting, city hall, etc. Our new aldermen, and the old, are entering upon the  work with renewed confidence, and we  may look with assurance into a year glowing with promise of a better day.

This Spring will see Enderby  -move rapidly forward, and there  is work for all to do.  Don't complain, dearie; it takes  this crisp, frosty, below-zero  weather to give our Okanagan  apples their rosy cheeks.  City Clerk Rosoman deserves  great credit for the excellent report prepared by him of the  year's business, and submitted  to the electors before nomination  day.  Evans & Mack, Enderby's obliging' liverymen, are having  manv    calls for    cutters  these  $45,000 as reported, with the  possibility of it being increased  to $72,000 before it is paid. Mr.  Murphy's share of this will be  something like $30,000. His  many friends will be pleased to  learn of his good fortune.  Fifty old-timers recently gathered at the Spring Brook ranch  to celebrate the silver wedding of  Mr. and Mrs. A. Paul. Rev. Mr.  Campbell lead in the ceremonies.  "The expressions of good-will/'  writes our correspondent, ''reminded one of the good old days  in this Valley when men felt as  brothers to one another.''

It  is a move up the ladder of railroading and Mr.   Morrison, like  better known to his superiors  than to the general public. He  took the office when few men  could handle it, and he has seen  the business more than double.  Few men will be found who will  handle the Enderby business so  well; none better. In their residence here, Mr. and Mrs. Morrison have entered actively in the  fraternal and social life of the  community, and they and family  will be greatly missed.  Getting Doivn to Business  Pursuant to a call for a meeting of the Enderby Board of  Trade, issued by Chairman F. H.  Barnes, signed by R. E. Peel,  secretary pro tern, a number of  the members gathered at the city  office last Friday evening to complete organization.  The committee appointed to  solicit members reported 43. The  constitution and by-laws as adopted will be reported in full later.  The following officers were  elected: President, R. E. Peel;  Vice-President, C. S. Handcock;  Secretary-treasurer, A. E. Taylor.  Standing committees:  Civic improvement: Messrs.  Moffet, Taylor and Harvey.  Finance: Messrs. Jones, Fulton  and Sutcliffe.  Advertising: Messrs. Walker,  Barnes, C.

Mara, B. C.  The Editor, Walker's Weekly:  Having    been     an    interested system under which about 80 per  reader of the letters and editorials bearing on the question of  local option, which have appeared your columns recently, I would  like to say a few words on the  subject, if I may be permitted.  Anyone of ordinary intelligence  will admit that drunkenness as a  vice is bad; bad for the victim  and also to some extent bad for  society at large: so is any other  form of vice, and there are quite  a few besides drunkenness to be  dealt with by society today.  The closing of the bars in Enderby would undoubtedly rid that  city of most of its old topers, (if  it has any) who would naturally  travel as far as Sicamous or some  other sequestered spot where  local option is not. This would,  of course free the city from the  presence of the disciples of Bacchus, but would certainly,not act  as a reforming influence upon  them. It appears to me that it  would merely amount to the she!-  Get in line   for" the   on war  march!   We are moving ahead.

And if we do not see  the God Man in the men by our side,  we shall not see Him in ourselves.  But if we let our minds be open, and  live our lives simply and lovably, we  shall know the highest joy, the "joy  of going on,'1 and shall recognize in  all about us something of the Divine.  All life is made up of one hidden  stuff. How much we are to experience of Life will depend upon how  much of the hidden stuff we bring  to light and make use of. We cannot grow; cannot experience the joy  of going on; if we are not prepared  to dig and delve, and delve and di^,  for the hidden stuff. And wre shall  find that the only joy is, after all,  the joy of Being���������������������������simply BEING���������������������������  our truest and best.  I see that my old friend and coworker, William Walker Atkinson,  has joined himeslf to the Eternal  Progress, of Chicago. It is from this  excellent magazine that I make the  quotation, "the greatest of all joys,  is the joy of going on." And so I  judge that Mr. Atkinson has at last  placed himself in the atmosphere his  soul has been crying out for for  years.  It was one afternoon as we sat in  our office after the rush of correspondence was over that the incident  of which I write took place. Mr.  Atkinson is a man of marvellous intuition, and a modesty that approaches almost fear when he is  called upon to meet anyone calling  to see him out of curiosity, or to do  homage. He would rather take a  licking than meet one woman admirer who thinks she knows the man  because she has read his writings  and admired them. And I have seen  the man just "go to pieces" on being  forced to meet a caller who had travelled far and would not take "no"  for an answer. Mr. Atkinson was a  Chicago lawyer before he fathered  what is known as New Thought. H-i  has an interrogative nature and seldom lets up on a fellow when he gets  after him for information. He had  on the table before him a copy of  my first book, "The Heart of Things."  "Walker," said he, "where did you  get that thought," referring to something in the book. I recalled that  it had come to me one day in the  woods, away up in the mountains of  Canada. For three hours he questioned me as to one thought and  another advanced in the book. As  I explained them to him, and told  how they had come to me, he seemed  more satisfied. Not until he had  pumped me dry, did he offer any explanation of his questioning. Then  he  took   out  thought  after  another  and told me how men had given them  to the world centuries ago. He  named the writers, and showed how  tiiey had, in many instances, expressed themselves in almost the identical  words. Many of the writers I had  never heard of. None of them had  I read. I did not know such truths  had ever been expressed before, and  I must confess I felt almost heartsick when I discovered that the  thoughts which I had considered  were direct from the fairies of the  pine woods, were thoughts that  thinkers had put before the world  when it was centuries younger.  Truly, thought I, 'there is nothing  new under the sun."  It is hard to grasp this truth in its  full meaning. We strive continually  to give to the world something we'  have worked out in secret only to  find that before us there comes another with almost the identical thing.  Especially is this true with regard to  the Inner Self���������������������������the Subconscious  Ego���������������������������the God Man. As He develops  within us, the Outer Man, thinks he  is bringing forth, giving birth to, a  new idea; but when he gets that idea  clothed in the best language of his  heart, and fit to appear in public, he  discovers that before him came another, perhaps centuries ago, with  the same thought expressed in about  the same way. As Fitzgerald was a  reincarnation of , Omar���������������������������must have  been to have put the wisdom, and  humor, and power and love into his  superb translation of the quaterns���������������������������  so are we all but the living counterpart of the One Big Self behind and  in and through all.  My eyes were never opened to this  until   Mr.   Atkinson   cross-examined  Watch Repairs at Prices Never  Before Quoted in this Province  Watches Cleaned, $1.00  Mainsprings, - - $1.00  The above prices are good for two months only.

I shall never forget the feeling  of  absolute   nothingness   that   came  over me when I discovered that the  truths I had worked out in my crude  and imperfect way, away from every  influence and without the knowledge  of another  or  access  to  the  aids  I  have since discovered, I shall never  forget, I say, how small I felt when  I learned that others, long before my  time, and in a language I knew nothing of, and under conditions I never  had experienced, had given birth to  the" same, or similar children of the  mind.    It was days before I could get  back   the   Spirit,   the   ambition,   to  move ahead.   What's the use, thought  I.    If I am to dig and delve as I had  in the past;   if I am to endure the  pains   of  thought   birth,   and   bring  forth children  of the mind,  only to  find that they are imperfect counterparts of other children brought forth  by other minds long before my time;  if I am to give my best, only to find  that long before me there came another  with   something   better,   wha*-  profiteth it me?  Gradually, however, I learned the  better lesson. My friend had opened  to me the channel of a. bigger  thought���������������������������the possibility of a bigger  Self. I felt sick at heart and sore  tried; but this feeling had not come  to stay. It afterwards seemed to me  like the period suffered by the bulbs  planted just before the ground  freezes, to bloom in the early Spring  It was painful, but necessary.  When  we  learn  that we  are  but  Living Expressions of the Whole, and  +i ���������������������������_ls, up t0 us t0 truJy express  the Whole in our Individuality, we  have learned the greatest lesson Life  has for us.    When we do service, bv  way of regenerating an old thought  and making it new, we not only assist  our fellows, but are ourselves assist-  etd.    It is this that brings the "greai-  eet joy of going on."    We die to the  outer self and live to the Inner Self  Men  living in  the outer self, cannot  :istii������������������.g-uish   the  difference,  and   may  ���������������������������:amn us for what appears to them an  enlargement of the Ego.     But whet  really counts is not men's damnation  nor  men's praise,  but the living of  one's  highest  and   best  true  to   the  i^ight from within..  niYSICIAM CIVES ADVICE  Tells   Why   So   Many   Suffer   from  Catarrh and Rheumatism.

In the Poultry Yard  The poultry business is one of  many phases, each of which requires individual study and local  treatment.  A successful breeder says that  energetic mediocrity is more prolific of results than indifferent  brilliancy.  Don't overlook the fact that  sunflower seed and millet are  both food for chickens during the  moulting period.  Try feeding dried alfalfa hay  and clover, scalded, during the  winter months and watch the egg-  supply increase.  Pullets should be fed wheat  oats, and beef scraps, if the latter can be had. Also give them  milk in any form.  Never set an ill-shaped or deformed egg, nor one extra large  or extra small. Have them as  near of a size as possible.  Don't expect your incubator to  perform impossibilities. You  cannot expect strong chicks from  poorly fertilized eggs or from  those containing weak germs.  Turkeys c&n be successfully  hatched in incubators but it is  best to raise them under turkey  hens. Set a few turkey hens at  the same you start the incubator  and the hens will care for the  .y_h QleJnt.    - _..  IN   THE   CHURCHES  PHURCH OF ENGLAND.

C, Rice, Enderby  During the recent cold  snap many residents had |  their vegetables frozen, on  account of having no proper  place to keep them. In view  of this the following method  if adopted in cooking frozen-  potatoes, will result in the  tubers being placed on the  table without any trace of  having been frozen. Have  a pot of boiling water in the  range, then drop the potatoes in one at a. time, allowing the water to come to a  boil after each one has been  placed in the pot.    They may  be left in this water until  thoroughly cooked and then  have the jackets removed;  or again you may let the potatoes remain in the boiling  water for say ten minutes,  then remove'and peel, replacing them in fresh water  to be cooked. Do not wash  potatoes before placing in  pot.  Frozen potatoes baked in  a hot oven show no sign of  having been frozen when  cooked.  Frozen apples are even  more delicious if thoroughly  baked after being frozen  solid.���������������������������Summerland Review.  Reduction in Men's Suits.

I'll tell you a good one.  jancl you needn't send the dollar  either. We boiled 60 pounds of  wheat, and after a day's soaking,  took out 277 lbs. of boiled grain.  A cellar is a good place in  which to operate an incubator,  providing it is light and well ventilated. If it has been closed up  tight all winter, however, and is  filled with the poison gases from  decaying vegetation, it is no  place for an incubator. The air  of the incubator room must be  sweet, fresh and pure.  Am feeding dry mash to most  of breeding pens at present, and  it is a ration that the hens seem  to take kindly to���������������������������one-third by  weight barley-meal, low-grad  flour and bran; feed in box nailed  to the wall, said box being filled j  at noon daily, just a common oblong box, with the top off and  holding about three pints of  mash. This seems sufficiently  large for 20 hens.  These are the days when we  meet fellow-poultrymen with the  usual "How's the hens laying?"  One gets all kinds of answers  such as, "Doing pretty good; I'm  feeding beef heads," or, "Oh, I  don't know. I'm not forcing them  just at present."
