Pa says:    ''Things done in violence have to be done over  again.''  :_xs__x_:  FROM ONE MAN'S POINT OF VIEW  TIEN a lawyer has a poor case he  invariably tries to influence the  jury by a shower of oratorical pyrotechnics instead of reason. Newspaper  editors occasionally fall into the same evil  habit. A case in point comes from Vernon.  Two weeks ago Walker's Weekly briefly  criticised the management of the Vernon  bonspiel.. A local player, in an unsigned  communication published in the Vernon  Okanagan, emphasized the fact that the  aforesaid criticism ''did not emanate from  the members of the Enderby Curling Club,"  which was quite correct.     If   the matter  ��������������������������� were allowed to rest here all would be well,  for it was. quite - the proper thing for the  Enderby playerS'Who took part in the bonspiel to repudiate the article, it being one  of the cardinal principles of all plucky  players to cheerfully take any kind of treat-  _meritJn^a^:am^aM  its issue of Feb. 18, the Okanagan, in a  thirteen-hundred word editorial, tries to  explain away the imputation credited to  Walker's Weekly. It is words, words, all  words.  As a matter of fact, 'Walker's Weekly  did not put as much into its criticism as the  Okanagan takes out of it. What we did  say, we said candidly, and without any desire to create a disturbance in the ranks of  so sedate an organization as the Okanagan  Curling Association. We addressed ourselves to the business men of Vernon. The  businessmen of Vernon are big enough to  recognize a plain statement of fact without  placing upon it such childish strictures as  "very nasty." What Walker's Weekly said  two weeks ago, it sees no reason for withdrawing now.    Its position today   is the  -*-sr  same as was its position~then.Q Jf/Iiarmony  is to pr%ail An the frtendl^e8ritests be-  ^aH___ll____S^^f^o Okanags  tween th%^||^$j^mg^ojr tne UKanagan  towns the conESffs will have to be conducted differently from the Vernon bonspiel. To say that everything was lovely  at Vernon is sheer nonsense. Nobody  knows this better than the Vernon people.  The Okanagan says: "With regard to the  number of rinks entered by Vernon, it  was understood right up to the day of the  'spiel that Enderby would bring down four  rinks; Kelowna four or five, and at least  two each from Armstrong and the other  lake towns." According to this, Vernon  was looking for 23 or 25 rinks���������������������������and thev  prepared only two sheets of ice for them to  play on!   Aye, even so, alas, alack!  ESOLUTIONS asking the Provincial  Government to appropriate a sufficient sum to complete the wagon road  to Mabel Lake, were passed last week by  the Enderby Conservative Association and  the Board of Trade. The outlook for the  appropriation is very favorable. The Government looks with favor upon the project,  and will undoubtedly give the full amount  required. It is most important that the  work should be done. A vast territory will be  opened to traffic. All the lands tributary  to Mabel Lake will be brought into easy  reach of Enderby, for the A. R. Rogers  Lim______Jlo._____U  traffic boats on Mabel Lake, to handle the  business promising.  RUCE, in Saturday Sunset, is one of  the few Canadian newspaper men to  outgrow the bugaboo Fear. He does  not go mincingly along Life's sidepath,  stopping at every turn to enquire the way,  and what he should say and how to say it.  He takes the broad, open road; speaks true  of the things as he finds them and asks no  man for the privilege. His criticism of the  Comox-Atlin political deal by which Mike  Manson was sold out to Templeman is one  of the few good things we have read on  the subject. Concluding his remarks, he  says: "About the.principle-involved!   Why  discuss such trifles? No party in British Columbia has any. This deal has exposed the utter cant  and hypocrisy of both Liberals and Conservatives."

There was a big rush to the  Harvey & Dobson assignee sale  Monday morning, but, so great  was the task of re-marking-the  goods, that Manager Wilson discovered he was not ready for the  rush and the doors were closed  until Wednesday.  In offering congratulations  to  an Enderby lady on the birth of  a daughter, a friend wished her  "along life of peace, joy and  service: until( she could say as  another had said, 'arise, daughter,  and go to your daughter, for your  daughter's daughter has a  daughter.''

I will be pleased to give you  prices on watches, chains and  rings.    Dake, Enderby.  Bill Long Sent Up  There are few men in this district who do not know Bill Long,  of Mara. He was up before  Magistrate Rosoman last week,  charged with beating his wife.  Mr. Long is 74 years old, and is  hale and hearty, rough and ready;  a bad man in liquor. It appears  that on Sunday, the 6th, Long  spent the day cruelly beating his  aged helpmate. When their cabin  was visited the following day it  presented a sickening sight, and  the aged woman was lying,  bruised and, .uncared_f,or.,___up_on_a.  recent visit as poultry judge. Dr.  Bell is secretary-manager of the  Winnipeg Industrial Exhibition  Association. In a letter acknowledging receipt of the photograph  Dr. Bell says: ' 'The photo of your  thriving town will be preserved  by me as a momento of my first  trip down the Okanagan Valley.  Kindly extend to the rest of the  boys my good wishes for their  success. I hope the weather in  the Valley is considerably milder  than it is in Winnipeg."  Card of Appreciation  disordered bed. Her condition  was pitiable in the extreme, and  the case was at once reported to  the authorities. Constable Gar-  ddm took the case in hand, laid  the complaint and prosecuted the  case. Attorney Banton was retained by Long, but when he  learned the shocking cruelty of  the prisoner, withdrew from the  case, and the man threw himself  on the mercy of the court. He  was sentenced to six months' imprisonment with hard labor.  The Way to Please  Thos. Pound took occasion to  send to Dr. A. W.

C, February 18, 1909  r ���������������������������  ���������������������������y. i.'  _>CX  rrxzr  A. R. ROGERS CO. PLANNING FOR A BUSY SEASON  rxxc:  ixx:  Always in the lead in matters  of town improvement, the A. R.  Rogers Lumber Co. is planning  extensive work in Enderby this  season. The Company believes  that by affording better housing  facilities for its workmen it will  gather about it a better class of  men. With this object in view  Manager Stevens, immediately  on his return from the East, gave  orders for the overhauling of the  Company's boarding house. Ira  C. Jones has the work in hand.  He is partitioning off into rooms  the large sleeping ward heretofore used by the men, and these  rooms are to be provided with  every convenience looking to the  comfort of the men and the betterment of their condition.  The Company will further add  to its Enderby property, by erecting several handsome cottages  for the use of its employees.  These will be of similar architecture as those erected two years  ago.  The Company is shipping large  consignments of lumber���������������������������larger,  by far,  than its shipments last  season at  this   time,   and Mr.  Stevens states   the  outlook for  extensive business this season is  -v-e-i-3-ene0urag-i-ngr=���������������������������It���������������������������is���������������������������h-is4it--  tention to   further improve the  blower cystem at the mill.   This j  he hopes to complete and have in |  readiness to start the mill by the .  1st of April.   The Company has j  a splendid lot of logs for the sea- j  son's run. !  In view of the great need ol  transportation facilities on Mabel  Lake, and as much for the convenience of the settlers of that  district as for its own, the Company proposes to put two tugs on  the lake this season, large enough  to handle the traffic of the district. The Company will this  season release several quarter-  sections from which it has cut  the merchantable, timber.    This  land will go back to the government and immediately become  available to settlers. It is the  purpose of the A. R. Rogers Co.  to release its Mabel Lake limits  as fast as the timber is taken off,  its purpose being to assist in  every practical. way to get the  land into the hands of the actual  settler.  The completion of the Enderby  road to Mabel Lake will bring  the settlers of that district within a few hours' drive of Enderby.  It is almost certain the government will undertake the work  this season. A petition is also,  before the government from the  settlers of Trinity Valley asking  for a short wagon road and  bridge to give that valley connection with the road to Enderby.  All of which adds importance to  this road, and makes it certain  that that district will be very  active this year.  Hall Opening at Hullcar  A free public dance will be  given at the Hullcar-Deep Creek  Hall, Friday evening, Feb. 19th,  to celebrate its opening. The  men of *��������������������������� that district are to be  congratulated on the early com  pletion of the hall. They went to  work on the proposition with the  faith and firmness that always  wins confidence, and soon had  the assistance required to make  the hall an assured thirig. The  Armstrong orchestra has gratuitously tendered its services for  the opening dance.  Splendid, Neighbor!  Commenting on the splendid  achievement of Armstrong in  quickly disposing of its $25,000  electric light bonds at par, the  Advertiser says: "When outsiders  tell us so plainly that we have a  magnificent future, is it not time  that a different spirit prevailed  amongst those who are opposed  to progress at the expense of improvements? A spirit of buoyancy should prevail, one of faith  in ourselves and our municipality.  The old proverb, 'The Lord helps  them, who help themselves,'  would quickly bear fruit."  The lesson of this short sermon  pan be applied in other localities;  and with particular force in localities where public spirit has  been buried in the shallow grave  of selfish dogmatism.

Milk scales are not expensive, and it  is very little trouble to weigh and record the amount of milk from each  cow. It will take more time to add up  the long columns, but an adding machine would pay for its cost in a short  time.

It requires care to  test milk accurately, but a man who  is not equal to it has no business to be  in charge of a dairy farm.  In some sections cow testing associations have been formed, and special agents do the testing, and much  good work is being done along these  lines by the New Hampshire Agricultural college. The dairy division of  the college has taken much interest in  the matter of encouraging farmers to  test the product of their herds For  =some==tim(.x_.Ilrot-a__oi_=I.j:isiuiissen���������������������������has=  been sending out sample boxes to interested dairymen. The box carries  fifteen sample bottles.

The action was^concurred in by the  full Board.  The advertising committee  submitted a plan of ^ immediate advertising, which was  finally adopted by the Board  and power given to proceed  with the work. The matter  of sign-boards was referred  back to the committee for  further information.  The roads, river and streams  committee suggested that  some action be taken to preserve so far as possible the  natural beauty of the river  shores, by encouraging the  leaving of the natural trees  along the banks.  A resolution was adopted  setting forth the great need  of the completion of the road  to Mabel Lake, and endorsing the representation made  to the Government by the  Conservative Association.

There are some people who have the  desire for neatness, but lack iu ..its  execution They can put to rights, but  not keep it up  It is easier to be a born sloven than  one with a wish for orderliness allied  to the habit of misplacing  That place for everything rule is a  good one���������������������������if you don't forget the place.  The woman who can find her belongings even in the dark is the one to tie  to. provided she doesn't achieve her  neatness by nagging and everlasting  primpness.  That some girls' bureau drawers  have a cyclone struck look ��������������������������� may not  argue a lack of orderliness so much as  an overpressure of affairs. It is not  easy when every minute counts to put  things hack in the exrtct spot where  they  should  go  As the hump of order is the greatest  time saver known, it is well, however.  for the busy girl to make strenuous  efforts to acquire it. It may take an  extra minute to put things where they  belong, but time is often reckoned by  hours when it comes to hunting them  where they don't belong.  Orderliness is a good business asset.  The girl who can put her fingers on  notebook at an instant's notice, who is  not on a perpetual hunt ..,for pencil,  eraser and other daily necessities, who  has learned to classify her papers for  easy finding, rarely makes a failure of  her career  ������������������!FW  CANDLE   SHADES.

Directions: One teaspoonful after  each meal and at bedtime.

And no matter what they fight  for they couldn't gain less should  they win.  To understand the motives of a  noble minded man or woman we  must be noble minded. Otherwise  his or her actions will appear like  trickery or folly to us.  Have you ever spent one whole day  in mental (sour) growth?
