 icr _. _u__r t*m_* wmm m  Enderby, B. C, March 18, 1909  AND      WALKER'S      WEEKLY  Vol. 2; No. 3; Whole No. _5  Twelve More Street Lights Ordered  CITY business-of considerable  importance     occupied   the  time  of  the City  Council last  Wednesday evening.   Mayor Bell  was in the chair; Aid. Evans,  . Lawes, Peel and Forbes present.  Aid. Peel's street improvement  by-law came up for its second  reading. It was slightly amended  and laid over for final consideration!  The matter of street lighting  came up again and it was decided  to install 12 additional lights to  the present system; the majority  of the lights to be placed on the  Vernon road and the Salmon Arm  road to the turn north of Knight  street.  The salary of Mr. Rosoman as  magistrate was increased from  $10 to $15 per month.-.  * : The Clerk was instructed to  write Mr. Sharp, of the Agassiz  experimental farm regarding  shade trees; also to order a small  supply of diphtheria antitoxin  from the: Provincial Board of  Health. l ���������������������������   "  Herb M'Cormick in Trouble  The .Vancouver Province says:  "William. Herbert. McCormick,  son of Mrs. Emma McCormick,  of Robson street, widow of the  late George McCormick, was arrested on the street a Jew days  ago by the city detectives, on a  charge of obtajning money under  false pretenses. The charge is  laid by' C. D. Rand, the well-  known real- estate broker, who is  alleged to have been victimized  to, the tune of $6000. Behind the  arrest is a human interest story,  involving the alleged refusal of  the mother of the boy to protect  ^him-against^arrest-and^the-possi-^  ble consequences of his alleged  criminal action. The McCormick  es'tate is valued at anywhere between $400,000 and $500,000, but  Mrs. McCormick, it is alleged,  after haying considered the matter forborne time, finally decided  that she would not intervene to  .save her_sbn."; The crime young  McCormick is charged with was  committed in the month of December last. At that time he  applied to Mr. Rand for a loan of  $4,500, offering as security a certificate of indefeasible title and a  deed bearing what purported to  be the signature of Mrs. McCormick  and  conveying to the  young man their Robson street  home. The money was provided  arid later McCormick applied for  a further loan of, $1,500, which  was also given him. The signature to the deed is said to have  been pronounced a forgery.;  ��������������������������� David Kinbascot, an Indian,  and Peter Quinn, were taken before Magistrate Rosoman on  Tuesday, the former charged  with having liquor in his possession, and the latter with selling  it to him. By a sharp police  dodge, Constable Gardom caught  them in the act, and both pleaded  guilty. The Indian was fined $25  and costs; Quinn, three months  at hard labor and $50 and costs.

Few entertainments have given  such genuine satisfaction as the  Drummond'Recital last Thursday  evening by Rev. Dr. Hatt. Every  number was a. treat and the  whole a feast.   F. H. Barnes and D. T.

A  T the regular meeting of the  Board of Trade, last Friday  evening, the committee's final  draft of the by-laws was" approved, and they^ were ordered  to be printed.

W. H. EDMONDS,  District Registrar.  . Land Registry Office, Kamloops, B.C.,  Mar. 9th, 1909. -   . 3-11-4  HE Good Book says, ''Be temperate in  all things," and to ''resist not evil,"  =-but=our-woman-sun.ragist3v-and4oGaU,  optionists think they have a better way.  This week the editor received a fifteen  hundred word communication from D.  Spencer, superintendent of the Local Option  League, accompanied by a letter asking us  to publish it. As our space is limited, and  we have the local field to fill we are compelled to lay the article on the table. It  pretends to express the position and intention of the Local Option League, with reference to the action of the Provincial Government in deciding to submit the question  to a vote of the people, but it is for the  most part the vituperate cry of a spoiled  child who has peevishly demanded more  than the parent can give in fairness to the  rest of the family. We believe a temperate  policy in all things is the best policy. Intemperance never wins. And Mr. Spencer  is very intemperate. He objects strenuously to the matter being left to a plebiscite and accuses the Government of showing great weakness in so deciding. He  forgets that the 35,000 signatures presented to the Government represent scarcely a seventh of the population of the Province. Surely the Government has a right  to consider the rest of the family without  being considered weak, or. a tool in. the  hands of the liquor men. After accusing  the Government of these things Mr. Spencer  goes after it for passing a resolution asking for a Royal Commission to be appoint  ed to enquire into the'liquor-traffic..- This,  he says, is another way of. shelving the  question, and ."will-arouse the spirit of the  temperance people to white heat." Just so.  The most intemperate .people on earth are  the temperance people. Dare to question  any attitude they take, or presume io demand of them the same reasonableness as  would be demanded in other legislation,'  and they are '''aroused to white heat."   -  We have little patience with an intemperate man, be he given to liquor or cold  water. All men prize sobriety and sanity,  _andJh.e^manj^h.ojlp_e.s^not_realize_that_w_e_  need all the brains we have got in minding  our own business and doing our work as it  should be done is a back number. Men  who are "aroused to white heat" the moment they cannot have what they ask for are  not safe men. The conclusion, of Mr.  Spencer's tirade, is sufficient to show what  are the plans and- objects: of -the local optionists.   He says:  "The campaign is on. Let every moral  reformer work. If the foolish move of the  Government, even for liquor support reasons, means their defeat and the placing of  the Liberals in power, who is to blame?  ... We must put principle before party  and vote for the men who will put the settlement of the liquor question in the hands  of the people."  Pray, Mr. Spencer,' who are the people?  And in .what better way can the question  be more equitably settled than by submitting it to a plebiscite? The men who do  not agree with the local optionists in their  arbitrary demands, are property owners  and ratepayers, and surely they have some  rights. So have the liquor men.' Local  option is not a new thing, nor has it proved  to be a panacea for all intemperance. If  a government cannot be permitted to hear  both sides of the question without "rousing  the ire of the temperance people to white  heat," they are very intemperate temperance people.  sounding'" the Board.    -The.  proposition met with favor until  the matter of expense"came up. ���������������������������  When Chairman , Moffet. said the  committee" estimated the cost of  the    completed    work���������������������������buying,  planting,  boxing of ~,a thousand .  trees���������������������������would be' $1,500,  Mayor  Bell'whistled and looked as if an '  earthquake had  hit"' him.  -Mr.  Bell explained'that he had-not  anticipated anything so expensive'  and was emphatic in his'opposition.': He .believed ��������������������������� the time .had"  not come  for  anything of .the ���������������������������'  kind, and thought the proposition was ridiculous,' and said he  would vote'against it.     He en-;,  lai'ged upon' the good" work the  city has done, and demonstrated  how important;it is to keep'the."  rate of taxation, down, contrast- "  ing Enderby's present rate of 18"  mills with that of 27 millsin.the"  towns to the south of us;\ .Every-'r.  thing the city owned, was self-  sustaining-, and he was of "the  opinion that-we should; not'di-.,  ���������������������������verge1 frem,.this* policy.',- ���������������������������'- ��������������������������� -' _"'''':*: ���������������������������  ���������������������������   F.'H.

'   ���������������������������   .       ; - '_.,  Dr. Keith interjected the remark thaiso far as he could see ��������������������������� -  it was the high-taxed cbmmuni-'���������������������������'-.  ties that were doing :things and",  attracting,capital and people.   *" "  It was pointed out that-if we v.  were to make Enderby attractive  we must expect to have to spend" "  both moji-iy and labor in the development of our natural advant-.'"  ages.   If we want trees we must -.  plant-them, and if,  as has, been  demonstrated in  the past, four   :  years; our revenue is not sufficient  to put the city in proper shape, - _.  _hen4t-should-bedone-as-all-other==  progressive towns do it,  by the  issuance of 20-year debentures, -  thus throwing a fair share ofthe  burden  upon ��������������������������� those  who  come  -later and reap the benefits of the  improvements now made.  It was the sense of-the meeting  that action.should betaken along  the .lines . suggested,  but. as the- -_  committee had no  definite plan-  ready to  submit,   Mr.   Barnes  moved that the Mayor bereques- ���������������������������  ted to declare a civic holiday at  at early date to be known as Arbor Day, and that all good citi-  ���������������������������  zens be earnestly requested to  contribute as many trees as they  feel .disposed,   the same to be  planted on the city streets under  the supervision of the Civic Improvement committee..  The motion carried unanimously.  All who attended the St. Patrick concert given last night by  the Ladies' Aid of the Methodist  church, will long remember it for  its distinctive' Irish air, and its  many excellent numbers.   ��������������������������� ���������������������������  The person who took two water  barrels from the C.P.R. stock  corral Tuesday evening, * will  please return them to me.

The brutalities
rule seemed to be brought to a. hond by
the establishment of a Circassion colony
in the heart of tho country.
The peasaniry revolted and the I'.ashi
1. zonks, the Turkish irregular soldiery.,
���������mainl'aiu-ed especially for purposes of
atrocity, were sent in  to  put down  the
le drawing rooms not for bridge but for
Ihe playing of these puzzle games. There
are trays manufactured especially to
hold Ihe pieces. They are Flat wood
boards with a railing about an inch high
about their four sides.
Their   groat   merit  is   the   protection
if the
nils
they afford against the loss r
arate pieces. That, i.s of ihe utmost i
porlnucc. for a lifelong friendship h;
been known to snap under the heinous
crime of returning a puzzle with one
piece Tiiifsing. When it is understood
that some of these puzzles contain as
many as twelve hundred separate .pieces
iC'may be seen how easy it is to lose
one.
In order lo make it possible to spend i
ittle
more money on the game, there an
"boards covered with damask or brocade
of the. puzzles-soon take one line of pic-
lure as their specialty, and that serves
as a species of trade mark. One woman
does only Japanese prints.
The find that the most important
dclail iu tin: making of the puzzle* is lo
put the pictures smoothly on the board,
and for this the ordinary pholgraph
paste is considered best. Tlie picture
inu.it be. laid without the faintest suggest ion  of ji  wrinkle.
After it, has dried on the wood and
the jigsaw has cut il. inlo pieces the
rough,edges must be carefully smoothed,
with sandpaper until I lie re is lilth: difference between the surface of the pic-
luri! and the edges of the separate piece*:
iu  point of smoothness.
Tin; outside edges are straight, as
they are cut in the first instance at the
saw mill. The oval puzzle is not yeL
in much demand, since il is very difficult
lo put together. The straight edges of
the, pieces of the rectangular puzzle
serve lis a guide. The fii. t thing thai
the average -puzzle fiend does is to find
the outside edges of the picture, whicli
he is of course, nhli; to tell by (In:
straight  edge.
Another trick of the expert puzzle
player i.s to put, together several piece?
that form a pari of the picture.  Then he

been found much easier than atteniptinir

Naturally the, small outlay of capital
necessary and the essential suitability
of the work to feminine qualities have
led many women who are self-supporting  to  take  up the  manufacture of  the
picture puzzles. The. most successful of
the women is in Hoston. With Hi.
assistance of two helpers she is said to
have earned !ji.;")0 a week for years.

One  of   the most successful  amateurs    llilVt! fn^d them out in largo numbers.
One of the. fashionable hotels near tho
city has used a puzzle to.-advertise its
advantages.
A young woman who had made money
by conducting a hotel on lhe phui of a
country house recently made an addition
lo it. iind in order to make this known
lo her patrons she sent them and other
possible guests, a picture puzzle .which
formed a view of the hotel as il i.s at
'present. While it was not especially
difficult to pul together. Ihe guests who
worked it out arc not likely to forget
the name or appearance of the hotel.
In spite of the essentially uniiitelloc-
tual character of the puzzle pictures
'they-havo.-licei^kiiovvii���������h������~mi������ku=vii itirns-
of intelligent people, and there arc some
who have found it enough pleasure to
work oul these things lo give up bridge
in their favor. Yet nobody believes that
il will ever prove si substitute for the
game or even rival it in popularity.
The picture puzzles have found their
greatest popularity from the. fact (hat
they can bo left a I any moment and returned to. The more elaborate kind
with many pieces may .supply entertain.,
ment, .for the. empty, minutes of a whole
week. Enthusiastic players of course
will not, leave the (able until the pieces
are fitted iogethor, even if il keeps them
at work all night. Less zealous players,
however, are willing to come and go.
It was this (jiiiility of the picture puz.
zles that made them successful as a summer diversion. .In winter, when there
is less idle time and one sits down to a
photographs, they are very difficult lo
put together, lhe difference between the
varied shades being slight.
His friends prize very much the puzzle
he gives them as Ihev are not oniv more
artistic  than   the   ordinary puzzles   but
even more costly.

My no single act of Mr. Xickeiboy'.s  did this become impressed upon Clare,  but still impressed it was: and it perhaps awoke iiini to the fuel that the  gentle, beautiful girl bore about her a  certain difference, not only in appearance, but iu voice, in manner and in  tone, to the good old man and his simple,   liouo.-l-he-tirted   wife.  When -ho spoke, which was but seldom. Clare noticed a ring of music entirely at variance with the old man's  cheery notes.

Next day Clare returned to his work  again punctually, and silling down to  his desk, worked with tho same unremitting  diligence.  Ilo worked hard, not only because he  considered it- his duty, but because he  wished to kill the time, which seemed  terribly long.  At last the'hour of seven struck and  he was free.  With a heart throbbing with excitement he. hurried toward Oxford street,  and ten minutes before Daisy's lime,  stood wailing for her at a little distance  from the huge, gayly lit emporium, trying to tempt the dragging minutes into  speed by choosing tho expensive silk  dresses, in fancy, for his gentle love.  ' Presently ho saw the door open and  she 1 ripped forth. At the corner ho  came forward, and held out his .hand for  the liltle work basket with a, smile. .

IF this be true, the soul of  Mayor Bell has no doubt  been flying high since the  meeting of the Board of  Trade last Friday evening.  It was the honestest confession Mayor Bell ever made.  And the crudest.  What  does   Mayor   Bell  mean by characterizing the  proposition submitted by'the  Civic Improvement Committee as absurd or ridiculous?  What does he mean by stating  emphatically  that  he  would vote against it? ���������������������������-��������������������������� Does  he mean that he would vote  against it as Mayor, and prevent it getting before the  ratepayers in the form of a  by-law, or that he'would vote  against it as a private citizen  after it was submitted? The  latter is. his' privilege; the  former is not.   What to Mr.  Bell   is   "ridiculous," is to  the  majority- of our ratepayers the highest wisdom.  They perceive in the working  out of the project a beautified Enderby, the home of a  contented, progressive, happy  people.     They  foresee  as a result of this beautifying  increase  in population,  increase  in  property values,  increase in business; a larger,  fuller, more useful community life.    On the other hand,  Mr. Bell  is  the .owner of  renting property that rents  best, and will rent for all  time, while there is no other  business property to be had,  and it is only natural from a  selfish view that  Mr#> Bell  should see only one thing in  the proposition submitted, ���������������������������  another mill or two added to  the rate of taxation.  Mayor Bell based his decision to fight the Civic Improvement Committee's sug- H j   m      HeJ   .   N   dd  gestion on the ground that       H v  it would increase taxation, rpHE   Provincial    Govern'  and he made  much of the  *��������������������������� ment    deserves    great  ikctJ;h&t___M  of taxation-was 27 mills, and it has given to the fruit in-  Kelowna's about as high, the  rate of Enderby was only 18  mills. But the Mayor forgot  to state that our sister towns  are getting far more in  proportion for their 27 mills  than Enderby is getting for  its 18 mills. In addition to  beautifully lighted streets,  cement walks, shade trees,  and the many adjuncts that  go to make a city,���������������������������in addition to all these things, Vernon and Kelowna are getting  the people. Does it not seem  strange in the face of the  Mayor's statement that our  low rate of taxation should  be an incentive to businessmen and homeseekers to. locate here, that they prefer  to go to the higher-taxed  communities? Would it not  be stranger were it otherwise?  The# Civic Improvement  Committee acted wisely in  bringing forward the proposed improvement and we  hope to see them draw up a  definite scheme to place before the Board. It is not a  common thing for companies  such as the A., R. Rogers  Lumber Co., and the Cqlum-  bia Flouring Mills, to be in  favor of such a proposition,  for they are our heaviest  taxpayers. In this case,  however, they are public  spirited enough to not only  encourage it,  but are earn  estly working for it. Mr.  Moffet, manager of the flour  mills and chairman of the  Civic Improvement Committee, is doing more to improve the town's "appearance  with street trees, than the  Corporation has done in the  four years of its existence.  He is this spring planting 200  shade trees on the streets  about his residence." " Mr.  Moffet is a business man.  He recognizes that the most  valuable asset the town can  have is a lot of shade trees  upon the streets���������������������������and he  doesn't have������������������to pick pennies  from the branches to realize  wherein and to what extent  they.pay.  dustry.   It has spent, and is  spending,-enormous sums of  money  in  carrying out   a  broad, liberal policy looking  to the upbuilding and protection  of  this   important  branch in the development of  our natural resources.   Just  now it is operating through  the provincial constables, enforcing more  strictly than  ever the  regulations as to  spraying, etc.    This  is all  very well.   It is right that  the fruit industry should be  well advertised; it is right  that every precaution should  be  taken  to   prevent  the  spread of disease  and the  growth of pests in the orchard, even if it works a hardship at times.    But is  this  the" limit of the Government's  work?     Should  it  not  go  farther?   It is not enough to  induce men to put their money into fruit, and then load  them down with strict laws  regulating the growing and  marketing of the same.    In  common fairness to the producers    the      Government  should go another step,  and  say to the grower: ''Produce  the highest quality and we  shall see that you are protected in the marketing of  same."

A prominent local druggist states  that since the celebrated prescription of a distinguished specialist has  become more or less known it is interfering with the 'sale of secret  medicines. The prescription, which  first .appeared in a leading health  journal, is reproduced here, just exactly as originally written: .Fluid  Extract Cascara, y_> oz.; Fluid Extract Carriana Compound, 1 oz.;  Compound Syrup Sarsaparilla, C oz.  Directions: One teaspoonful after  each meal and at bedtime.  Any good druggist can dispense  this, or, even better, a person can  buy the items separately and mix  them at home by shaking them well  together in a bottle. It is stated  that the ingredients being vegetable,  are harmless and simple. It has a  gentle and natural action, and gradually tones up the climinative tissues,  leaving the kidneys in a perfectly  healthy  condition.  A merchant well known, in public  affairs states that this recipe cured  his rheumatism. Save the prescription.  H.  E. WABY  Enderby, B. C.

Ltd.  ���������������������������-^  The best Clothing made  in  Canada - 7  THE ENDERBY PRESS AND WALKER'S WEEKLY  Gi'e Us a G'od Conceit 6' Oorsels  WE of Enderby think we have the choicest location in all of the  Okanagan for a city of homes, ���������������������������and well we may. Nestling  snugly in the shadow of the hills on level land sloping leisurely to  the sleepy, soft-flowing Spallumcheen, with prairie and'mountain,  valley and plateau, in any direction the eye might wander; in  Spring, decked with the gayest greens and brightest colors that  Nature can give; in Summer, rich in harvest; in Fall, gorgeously  tinted by the richer yellows, the golden golds, the shimmering  maroons and fading greens; and in Winter pillowed beneath the  snow, ���������������������������rich, indeed, in all that man needs to make for himself a  home. When we study the individual, we study the community.  That which goes to build a good man will build a community of the  highest and best type. What is essential in one is essential in the  other. Let us, therefore, apply to the community what is said below of the individual:  Dr. Madison C. Peters says:   'The  old Scotchman's prayer, "Gi'e us a  god conceit o' o'orsels," must not be  taken in its poular sense that a man  should deem himself better than his  '' neighbors, but merely that he should  . have a dignity and self-respect to  make the world conscious of his  knowledge and strength when the  time comes for him to assert himself  and show his individuality.  There is a mighty gap between  conceitedness and self-respect. The  former is the weakness of a shallow  nature, the latter is the strength of a  true manhood. Conceit is vain glory,  self-respect is wisdom.  Therefore, when we say that a  man should have a good conceit of  himself, we do not mean that he  should, be puffed ^up with empty,  pride over his own individual merits  or attainments, but simply that he  should have a due appreciation of  his own powers, together with a  laudable desire to use" them to the  best advantage.  .  The world is critical, censorious  and hard to please, yet it recognizes  merit when merit isdue. It will not  tolerate the vman; who has an over-  estimation of himself, who thinks  that he is better than others, who  puts ..forth claims to knowledge he  does not possess, who would build  for himself a monument of fame  from the whited bones of those  crushed by the wayside, who would  gain prestige and power for himself  at no matter what the cost to his fellow beings in sorrow and suffering.  It will, however,-respect the man  who is conscious, of .his own individual worth, who' realizes his own  power,- who appreciates his own  talents, and devotes the best that, is  in him,to the good and the uplifting  of his kind, who honestly endeavors  to use his gifts'for the amelioration  of human sorrow and suffering, and  does all that he can to make the race  happier and the world better, than he  finds.it.  He who has no opinion i f his own,,  who cringes and bows down to "the  will of all with whom he comes in  contact, who sinks himself to a  lower, plane than his fellows,-who  does not rely on himself, and who so  hypnotizes himself as to believe that  he can not rise to the height of his  neighbors, or attempt to emulate  them- in' their actions, can never do  himself or the world any good. He  is a soulless thing, a mere automaton, perfunctorily performing the  physical actions of existence, as without a mind or soul to progress' or  development, or the general hap.  piness. "  The world, in its modern'trend, requires a man of spirit, of lofty aims  and earnest" ambition, with belief in  self to do things better than they  have been done. This is the spirit  that gives us our great inventors and  the men who make the wheels turn  around as they have never turned before.  Morse, by means of the telegraph  flashed thought from continent to  continent, Edison then stepped in  and girdled the earth with electricity, Marconi went him one better by  harnessing the waves of ether to his  will and won. Wright has conquered  the air with' his aeroplane.  Such men are men of conceit, but  conceit in the right direction. They  who mike things go; they keep moving all the time,' are never content  unless climbing higher and higher- to'  loftier ideals.  Hats off to the daring souls who  scorn to walk in the old ruts, who.  carve out new paths for ^themselves  and -leave them broad and open for  others to follow' in their footsteps.  These are the. ones who have the  right kind of conceit, the'conceit  which is appreciated and brings its  own reward.  ��������������������������� Genius develops itself- along particular lines and finds, a votary at  every turning point���������������������������Ja. man who  strikes out for himself "and shows  to all the stuff of which he is made.  He gives to all his knowledge with  conscious pride, lie tells of what he  has done, what he is doing, and what  he is going to do, but 'he never  boasts. . He has the conceit which  carries him on from one* attainment  to another, progressing ever up thc-  heights of knowledge and flashing  the beacon light for others to follow  his footsteps.  How different he is from the man  of vanity, the man of shallow conceit, who poses for what he is not  and fain would make the world believe that he is' a Sir Oracle and epitome of all that's worth knowing.

True Shooting Feats V/ith a Revolver.
What are one's limitations -.vith a six-
shooter ?   Ought one to hit a man across
a   room,   a  small   room,   a  very   little
room, with it?    Yes, of course;  but in
all likelihood on. would not.    The question of what a'gun will do under.stress
of danger is  something not to  l_  answered by any one.    Of course, it will
do most in the hands of a cool and skilful   man.     I  have   seen   Jim   Nabours,
foreman oif the Caxrizozo ranch in New
M.xico. bring in  an  antelope  whiehVie
had killed with his six-shooter at a distance of  over  one  hundred    yards,  although he  fold  me  he dismounted  and
took sight across, his suldle.   '[ recently
was with Pat Garrett, the  \v_ll-known.
New Mexican sheriff,  for sovera-1 weeks
*ti the plains- and in the mountains, and
(Jarrett is the best revolver shot   I  ever
saw.   admitted  to   be  perhaps   the   best
ever known  in   tli^ Southwest.    In   our
HUle   impromptu     matches,   he     never
sighted   with   the   gun,   but   fired   with
his hand in amy po.-iiion. rarely  higher
than hip or wrist.    He said that he was
used  formerly  to killing rabbits in this
way.   simply   throwing   down     without
sighting,   as  he  rode  along,   perhaps  at
ten   or   fifteen    yards''   distance,   or  at
times more.    I' never  saw  him  sight a
gun carefully, and  he barely brought jt
up io the,  level   of  the   eye.    He   could
hit'a tin can at  fen or fifteen steps, or
cut  close   to   a   two   inch   bull's-eye   at
similar distances.    We inado no records
and did  not. try   for any.       Uut    what
could  an   expert   do  if   he   was  at   the
_ro,'ttosi. pains to be accuralc. if he tried
his best?    Tins T asked of UaiTctf, bo-
.cause   f  thought   he  could  answer,   and
conclusively,   a   much-mooted     question.
'His answer  ought  to  be   held   as   final,
although very possibly  it  would not be
accepted as such, at least by those who
believe iu shooting out eyes at one hundred paces.
' "I am as good a revolver shot, as 1
ever s-aw." said Garrett. "I do not
boast of that, but simply say il is true
so far a.? I know. I have never been
beaten in a revolver match, and I have
always felt that no man was my master

defeated in an encounter with this
weapon.) ''Now. he-re i.s what Peall

A story \% fold of a west country
bishop who rebuked the sporting parson
for his hunting proclivities. I hear you
go fox hunting a good deal," he observed
one ��������� day. '"Vou'ought, not. to do this:
there is plenty of work to be accomplished in the parish."
'But." protested the vicar, "fox hunting is merely'healthy exercise: besides. I
hear you were at a ball the oVher night,"
"In a sense that is so," replied the bishop
f'In a sense that h so," replied, the
bishop; "but. truly speaking. 1 was fbxee

The vicar smiled and then retorted, "t

THE   ENDERBY   PEESS   AND   WALKEPw'S   WEEKLY.
.
Fashions /or young girls have seldom,
\) if ever, been prettier or more picturesque, than they are this season, whether we consider the claims of afternoon
frocks or evening dresses, and since
there are many parties for young people in prospect at tiie moment suggestion? for dainty dance frocks especially
designed to meet the requirements of
the ieune f'illc, should not come amiss.
.Voting girls' evening drosses have a disastrous habil. of wearing out with astonishing rapidity,, and the mother of
many daughters often finds herself confronted with serious difficulties when invitations come, pouring in aud new
frocks are needed, sometimes at short
notice, when the oid dresses seem to
grow suddenly shabby and out of condition.
A.frock, however, which happily combines a fresh and dainty appearance
with a very desirable durability, is carried out iu strong ivory-white net, with
largo woven spots in silk, and made
up over a satin foundation. The skirt
which is fairly full, i.s finished at the.
hem with a wide band of very fine Irish
crochet: lace, arranged above a closely-
gathered satin frill. Higher up on the
skirt there is another band of the. same
Irish lace, divided at intervals by upright inset tions.
The  Empire Sr.sh.
Very graceful, indeed, is the Empire
sash of turquoise-blue satin, which'passes once rouu'd the waist, and i.s thou
crossed at the back and brought down
low in front, Avlicrc the cuds are knot-
fed loosely together aud finished with
tassels formed of silk cords and balls''
Tho bodice is trimmed most becomingly
with Irish lace, and'the square-cut dc-
colletage is bordered with n full tucker
of white net, drawn up on a very narrow
furqnoise-bluc ribbon. The sleeves.'show
tho latest arrangement in the way of
flat folds of spotted inusliu, placed so
that theyencirclc the arm, above a wide
baud of lace insertion, which in its turn
gives place to a gathered frill of nct..Tu
the .hair a twist of pale blue satin ribbon is worn to match the sash.
The   White  Sash.
Frocks in soft white satin, made in a
perfectly simple .Umpire style, are good
investment... where young girls are concerned, as they do not. crush easily, and
need very little, indeed, in the way of
trimming, beyond a band of silver tissue
to finish the shorl-waistcd bodice, upon
which either lace insertion or silver ein-
luoidery will be disposed, as the case
may be. !._ net tucker, threaded with
narrow silver ribbon, looks well with a
frock of this kind, and the sleeves
.-houkl be made quite simply in the shape
of small puffs, with either silver embroidery or a band of lace insertion to finish them just above the elbow.
'" White voiles and silk eolienncs will be
found suitable materials for young girls'
evening dresses of the .simpler sort,

With  High Crown.
The high crown and the downward-
curving brim of one are covered on the
outer side with rose-pink taffetas uiotis-
selinc, shot-, with,- .silvery gray, and
around the crown there is a ek.cly'gathered band of the same shot silk, bordered above and be-low with a full piping of pink velvet.' The crown is lined
underneath with black satin, always
mo? tbecoining as a background to the
coiffure, and high on one side there is it
panache of ostrich plumes, shading
from the deepest .lo the palest pink,
and starting from the centre of the
back, whence they fall gracefully over
crown and brain.

toques are concerned, for those largo,
soft shapes, in many instances, nro .not

that they can be pinned on to the coiffure ui any fashion-which may happen

A GREAT NOVELTY.

and  Warmth  of  Both.
The velvet turban hood with its fur
edge develops an absolutely new idea respecting the stole.   '
The 'urban aiu_.the stole are -allied,
and after the turban has been put'on
the stole ends '.are taken aud wound
about the throat.'with one terminal left
to'hang over .the shoulders and- one in
front. 'Hie stole thus plays the"part of
turban   strings."
Another 'variation of the manner in
which the fur stole is worn now is twisted in serpentine fashion "round the figure, beginning at the tliroatand ending

White Serge for Mornings.
White serge is extremely fashionable
for morning wear as well as for dressier
occasions. During the last few weeks
many of tin; best dressed women in
Paris have been seen shopping wearing
white serge costumes, while I'cdfcrn.
I'aquin and C'aillot Soeurs have plenty
of orders for white serge costumes that
will be, launched in .Monte Carlo and
.Meuton. Long and short costumes both
are favored of this practical material.
AJ1 of these skirls hang plain: the coats
sometimes are plain, though some are
trimmed with embroideries, narrow silk,
and mohair braid.
Though Shantung silk serves a more,
practical purpose, it is favored aft being
dressy and stylish. Women who are
ordorintr three or'four outdoor'"costumes
make a point to include Shantung silk.
The material is shown in basket and
transparent weaves. They are woven
with great softness, making the. tutaer-
na Tfffi 1.11 ttfgnicef fi Hifi .sr^A'an y^shades-
nro seen, but green, amethyst, heliotrope and prune are specially favored. _
Strange iind almost paradoxical it is
lo hear from the makers of fashions
that lingerie blouses, especially the beautiful hand embroidend' ones, are passe
when the leading shops are showing such
exquisite hand embroidered effects. The
fine handkerchief linen, extremely cobwebby, is sold for afternoon costumes,
while' _lli(i_i designed.for morning wear
are heavier.
A decidedly prefly model i- made of
fine white linen, and the entire front is
worked with exquisite French bund cut-
broidery. Tho embroidered sleeve.-' reach

Empire Style Grows  in  Favjr.
Voluminous cloth wrap- arc (rimmed
hcavilv with wide bands _f velvet and
fur. The velvet is fashioned into bre-
lelles iu I hi' shoulders and for bauds
on  the collar and cuffs.
When il conic? lo a question of afternoon and evening gowns one thing is
sure, that the empire style prevails aud
ir growing more fali.-ionable each day.
As the' lions, of llcdfern say-: ''The
empire gown is here to stay surely a
sea.-ou or more. It is popular because it
is pretty and becomes ino.-t women.
l,hos.e inclined lo bo heavy as well as
the slender.''
Though empire costumes arc made in
nearly all materials, satin is especially
suited for this style of dress. It is
heavy enough lo keep the lines from
breaking and still fulls gracefuliy. A
handsome model is developed in taupe
satin. The waist of the gown is surplice
arranged over a guiinpe of nil-over lace.
The abbreviated waisted gown has an
empire girdle of taupe s-atin, widely is
arranged to a point well below the hips,

___\| THE ENDERBY PRESS AND WALKER'S WEEKLY  , c   _*_���������������������������_ ��������������������������� _*_*_���������������������������- -������������������y_- ._���������������������������_>_���������������������������  NEWS IN AND ABOUT THE TOV^N AND DISTRICT  >x:  "XX  xzxczc  _e_>������������������c_r  Enderby Odd Fellows gave an  evening of great enjoyment to  a host of friends in their hall on  Tuesday evening.  The Enderby Trading Co., is  showing Spring signs of prosperity. A new, up-to-date awning has been added to protect the  glass front.  Manager Heggie, of the Stepney ranch, says he has never experienced a Spring when the  snow has hung on so favorably  for a banner-crop year.  As an indication of the satisfactory quality of the flour put  out by the Columbia Flouring  Mills, of Enderby, a repeat order  came from Liverpool this week  and is now being rilled.  Mrs. F. Pyman left for Princeton by Monday's train. _ Mr. Pyman has established himself in  business there, and writes that  Princeton is a beautiful town  with immense possibilities on the  advent of the railroad, which is  coming this year.  A. Sutcliffe left for England  last Friday, to be absent two  months. Mrs. Sutcliffe will return with him,_ and upon their  return work will proceed on their  cement-block home, to be erected  by J. S. Johnstone on their hill  property in the. Lawes addition.  Will somebody tell us why the  Bank of Montreal property, the  choicest corner in town, is isolated by a dinkey, dilapidated  two-plank sidewalk ��������������������������� from Belvedere street to Vernon road ? It  is a very poor advertisement for  the town to permit, any property  on the main business street to be  side-tracked in this manner.  E. T. Smith, an old resident of  Enderby, returned to make his  home here, after two years spent  in the . Northwest. Mr. Smith  came in with a carload of effects,  including a team of as handsome  draught horses as ever came into  the Valley. He has bought back  his comfortable Cliff-street home  and is moving into it his household effects, preparatory for. the  arrival of Mrs. Smith-and family.  The ratepayers of Armstrong  have just voted to spend $2,500  to improve the agricultural  grounds, and to build accommodation for stock. There were 20  property owners who evidently  thought the proposition was  "ridiculous," for they voted  against it. The Advertiser says  of these 20: "They should be  ashamed of themselves. . . We  knew there were some narrow-  minded gentry in the municipality, but no one ever .dreamt, that  Robt. Bailey returned from a  month's pleasure trip to the coast  cities last Thursday.  The Presbyterian Ladies' Aid  will hold an "At Home" at the  home of Mrs. Flewwelling on  Wednesday, March, 24th. Tea  will be served from 3 to 5 o'clock.  An invitation is extended to all.  Tea, 10 cents.  Wm. H. Hutchison has purchased the Fraser lot on Belvedere street and is erecting a  modern blacksmith and machine  shop thereon. Contractor Barnes  has the work in hand. The building will be metalic sheeted on all  sides.  They Like the Change  Attention is called to the notice  published in another column  signed by Mr. Rosoman as secre-  tarv of the Board of Health. It  will add inestimably to the good  health of the community if the  orders given are promptly heeded.  Arrangements have been made  by the City whereby all rubbish  not of a foul nature may be  dumped into the abandoned clay  pits at the brick yard.  Mr. Bell has completed the  purchase of tho two best business  corners in town���������������������������the property of  N. H. Kenney and Wm. H. Hutchison, on Cliff and Belvedere  streets. On the Hutchison corner he will at once erect a brick  or cement single-story business  block. The opposite corner is  too valuable a property to remain  long without a building upon it,  though Mr. Bell has not at this  moment any plans laid for one.  Every voter should see that his  name is placed on the voter's list  without delay. The following  names have been gazetted as the  official vote takers in this district: L. B. Massey, Mara; Frank  Hassard, John Wilson and Chas.  Garden, Enderby; Isaac Heard,  Lansdowne. In addition to these  any postmaster, notary public or  magistrate is authorized to take  the names of all applicants. To  make it convenient for anyone in  Enderby, City Clerk Rosoman has  been supplied with all the necessary forms and is prepared to  take the names of all who apply  to have their names registered.  He will be found at the City  Office every day during business  hours.  It is very encouraging to receive so many evidences from  our subscribers demonstrating  their pleasure in the . change in  form of Enderby's newspaper.  Many of our readers are showing  their appreciation by coming in  and giving the editor a pleasant  smile and accompanying it with  a two-spot. The expressions of  kindness of our exchanges seem  to voice the sentiment of our  readers, and we give a few to  show our appreciation of all:  The enlarged Walker's Weekly  reached our table this week. The  change is very much to the good,  and is indicative of the fact that  things are going well with the  editor. ���������������������������Semi-Weekly Okanagan.  Walker's Weekly, the bright  and enterprising Enderby paper,  came out last week in a new  dress. It has been enlarged, and  has changed its make-up to the  regulation newspaper form, also  taking to itself the new name of  The Enderby Press. Under any  title, or in any shape, this newsy  and well written weekly is.a  welcome visitor, and is doing its  full share in forwarding the interests of the prosperous and  growing district in which it  makes its home;���������������������������Vernon News.  -Walker's Y/eekly comes out in  a new dress.- The publisher is to  be congratulated upon its fine  appearance. The enlargement of  the paper is a sign of prosperity,  which we hope will continue with  our friend Walker.���������������������������Armstrong  Advertiser.  .
