At  no time in the eighteen years  that Enderby has been celebrating Victoria Day were efforts  more earnestly made to make the  celebration a success: A. E.  Taylor and Robt. Peel at their  own expense, went to Revelstoke  last week and quickly arranged  the-matter of special train, baseball and lacrosse. ' Revelstoke  will-send its crack baseball*-and  lacrosse teams, and with them  will, come one of the biggest  crowds that Revelstoke has ever  sent into the Okanagan.  Armstrong will send her infantry band, lacrosse team and  hose-reel team;' and with them  .will come- her public-spirited  citizens. - Salmon Arm will send  her foot ball team and'her lovers,  of sport. Vernon was - to have  sent her football team, but En:  derby was hot'ableto employ .the  Vernon band in addition to the  Armstrong ��������������������������� and Enderby bands  and so Vernon's footballers withdrew. But this isn't the genuine  Vernon.spirit, and, inspite of the  puny pickled pique, Vernonites  of the broader spirit promise to  fill' the cars for Enderby, just as  Enderby fills the cars for Vernon.  The program of sports will  crowd the day full. On Cliff  street, before the big events are  called, the children's races will  be held. This will give the boys  and girls a chance to win spend-  ingjrioney for the day._ They  will enter the races" whillTfresn  and strong, not late in the day,  tired and worn.  After the children's races will  come the firemen's wettest. For  this contest the prizes will be  350 and $25.  Following the wet test, which  will be held on Cliff street, the  march will be made to the recreation grounds. Here many improvements have been made to  add to the convenience and comfort of spectators and players.  There will be no more crowding  into the field, and no more danger from foul balls. The grand  stand is substantially roofed and  otherwise improved. The refreshment booths are situated  within the curling rink, where  ample accommodation will be  provided for the crowds which  are expected.  Here Revelstoke's best baseball team will play Enderby, and  the Revelstoke lacrosse boys will  contest the field with Armstrong.  Here the Salmon Arm footballers  will wallop the bigskin with Enderby. These contests promise  to be the swiftest ever pulled off  on the Enderby grounds. The  field was never in better shape.  The Armstrong Infantry band  and the Enderby City band will  provide the music on the grounds  and there is every assurance that  there will be an' 'abundance of  tlie best. .    ,''  In addition to the regular program cf sport, our-horsemen  promise to put on four hours of  horse-racing for the edification of  any interested in the sport.  Word comes from Revelstoke,  Armstrong and-Salmon Arm tact  these places will send:the biggest  crowds they ever turned out to  Enderby.        The Eckardts, Swiss Bell Ringers, will appear in ' K. P. Hall  as the closing' event -;pf the 24th  of May .celebration. The Enderby  City Band will play them here,  and at the close of the performance a dance will be given. The  Eckardts aro well spoken' of by  the provincial press. ' It is one  of the best musical aggregations  that ever held the boards at the  Auditorium,'' says the Cranbro  Herald.

Thus writes "Bruce"_.n  the Saturday Sunset. And then he proceeds to elucidate. British Columbia imports $7,000,000" worth of farm produce annually, in spite of the fact that we have the  most productive lands in the world; the  most equable climate in North America,  .and can oner attractions, to the farmer and  settler such as few places in the world can  command. And yet, with all of these advantages, settlement and farm development has proceeded at a snail's pace. We  import butter from Ontario and New Zealand; eggs from Ontario and Alberta; bacon  from Chicago and Alberta; flour from the  prairies; beef from the prairies, and even  hay. It is pointed out that the facilities  and encouragement offered by the government in respect to settlement on the land  are not one whit better than they were 37  years ago.  In this connection "Bruce'' refers to the  absurd policy of holding in a state of idle  wastefulness so much land in the name of  Indian reserves.. * 'Steps should be taken,"  says he, "to throw open for settlement all  the Indian reserves not in actual use by the  Indians. It is a notorious fact that Indian  reserves occupy large tracts of the most  valuable lands in British Columbia and  that the Indians have under their control  anywhere from five to ten times as much  land as they use or need. The writer has  seen dozens of Indian reserves where not  one-te  enth of the land was- utilized and  where in many cases the lands, were totally  abandoned.- He has seen gardens "and  orchards surrounding deserted cabins fallen  into decay, overgrown . with' forest trees,  where no Indian has set fout for years, and  where all other, available lands ^had been  taken up by whites, and were-under cultivation.' Our present Indian policy does  nothing for the Indians and-holds back the  wheels of progress."      '  ���������������������������If "Bruce" will come to the Okanagan  we will show him a tract, of' 3,000. acres' of  the best land out of doors, upon which  seven Indians leaf and get a living. We  wilhihb w-hinranotherH;-ra^  held by less than -200 Indians, and not more  than 200 acres under cultivation'or utilized  in any way. We will show him an Indian  settlement of something less than 200,  where there is no school, no industry-  nothing to teach the younger generation  anything but sloth, slop, slovenliness and  slivers/ "It is a" crying--shame-that -the  government persists in this policy of darkness and sloth. To say that the Indian  can't or -won't elevate himself, simply  shows our ignorance of Poor Lo. The Indian will learn if given the chance. But  the policy of our government encourages  indolence and sets a premium on idleness  and filth. The only civilizing influences set  about the Indians are. venereal diseases and  the church. By disease the tribe is robbed  of its virility, and the church���������������������������is used more  as a place where the cinch is tightened than  as a place where souls are enlightened.  Speaking of the Enderby Indians and reserve, we, are confident that if the government would open to the whiteman and sell  for the Indians 5,000 acres of the 6,000 reserved, and with the proceeds establish a  fund to assist and educate the tribe, the  Indians would do as other tribes have clone,  and get more out of themselves, more out  of life, more out of their land���������������������������they would  become of some use to the community.  And the country would be developed instead of being wet-blanketed by reserves.  Jas.

At the home of Miss Gibbs, .  last Friday evening,  the members of St. George's church and  Glee .Club, gave a presentation to  Mrs. Geo. R. Lawes, in the form  of a handsome mahogany chime  clock. ' There were 25 members -  present.   Rev.   J.  Leech-Porter  made the presentation address;  eulogizing' the recipient in the"  highest terms  for her uniform  patience, tact and  ability, and  her unceasing loyalty as organist  of the church.    It is the wish of  the member's to publicly express ���������������������������  their appreciation of the favors ,  shown by Mr.' Dake in procuring  for them at first cost the handsome clock and for other courtesies in connection therewith.

''It's, the easiest thing m.the world/'  said Glide' Henry, cocking one ear in the  di*vciion she was the krst time he saw  hc-r, "understand ine, the easiest thing  i.i vJjc world for some women to drive  some men to drink. And I'm telling-you,  jny wife and 1 come under tlie head of  i hal "some.' It's only my naturally  thrifty disposition tliat keeps nie from  .. Miindcring my patrimony iu a mad at-  T.Ji nnt to destroy the present and forget  ;he 'future. You know, liquefying a ten  dollar buck and staying out aJl day the  :_i_t day.  "See Avli.it I mean? I'm in bad again.  Oh, huh! JJer! Seems like she had iu  framed up on me tor this New Year's  lhe same as she did on Christinas.  "Didn't I tell you? "Well, sir. she had  my present done* up in a bundle tlie size  of'st young load of coal, .ill covered with  lusily white paper, with those gum-  kicked sentiments and holly leaves pasted on it. I thought it must be something swell.  "'Say, did you ever skin down an onion until there was nothing left but the  smell? That's me, son. After I had ripped off about j. pound and a half of  fancy paper, all I found was a bottle  of cologn.���������������������������the kind she uses, at tnat.  ������������������ "Oli, tliat was easy. I didn't start  anything about that. But when it  comes New Year's she up and:  "'We'll make an agreement,' she says,  ���������������������������for the next year,' she say?, 'that neither of us shall criticise the other.' she  says, 'no .natter what tlie other does,'"  she says. 'Fault finding breeds unpleasantness,'" she says, just like that.  /Tumping J ehosophat! As though  that was any news to me. And me mar-  vied, by gracious, and to her at that!  T.ife"? a queer way of living .what? Jiut  that idea listened good to me. I couldn't  sec low I was going to lose, any way  you looked  at it.  "And," she says, ''the first one that  finds fault wilh the other shall do cx-  hcre is of the same general character  that they have at tlie sacred Sunday  night smoking concerts that you occasionally .attend when you feci a need of  congenial society. Apparently I have  to stay at home and take care of this  house or the first thing 1 know it will  be used for kennels. I'm not going to  waste my strength talking to you, but  this is not the end. You will hear more  of this.'  "And then she started upstairs. And T  suddenly came to.  "'Wile,' I. says, 'if J had your disposition I'd take it out in the back yard nnd  air it once in a while. Of two discomforts you have got smoke skinned to  death. I'm so used to your disposition  this smoke breathed to me like pure  ozone. And another thing,' I says, "you  lose,' I says.  '��������������������������� 'No,' she says, 'you lose. I wa*  spcaking of your health, which will be  ruined by the smoke,' she says. 'You,  however, have openly criticised me,' she  says, "as I knew you would,' she says,  'and for one year what I say goes,' she  says. 'Do you hear me, Henry?'  until I die, .[ suppose. Honest, son, what  chance lias a plain, ordinary male man  got?    Er?"  acily as the   other    says    for a whole  year,-'   . :e says.  "Fine. There was the exact spot  where your Uncle Kenny could see himself g'v.'ng a swell imitation of a man  winning something. Honest. I couldn't  loo .'at it any other way. It was like  taking  crumbs  from a canary.  "See what I mean? I never had the  nerve to find fault with her. It isn't  any use being foolhardy with women.  J .1. it went against common sense to  suppose that she would go a whole year,  without taking a few cracks at me.  That's a female woman person's nature  like, though of course I've been so well  home broken I hardly ever give her a  regular chance. Nol if I see her coming.  '"Well. sir. I grabbed it. And there  v.. a r_nstu and holy joy within1 my  hn .st. that welled up'so it felt almost  like the indigestion.

And after  having been married since I was old  enough to vote you take it from mc,  son, a man's chances are better in a  cyclone.  "Yon take 'cm by and large���������������������������the women. I mean���������������������������and when they start out  to say just what they mean it's ducats  lo doughnuts they don't always mean.  just what they say. That's the reason  why you haven't got any chance with  '"cm. You can dope out where a tornado is going to hit, but-you can't with a  woman.   She don't know herself.  "The trouble is when a woman goes  to get married she thinks courtship is a  sample of matrimony and all she has got  to do is pick out something nest and  nobby that will match her furs and life  is going to be one long lingering chocolate sundae; and that's no comic valentine.  "Listen here! You know mc. I'm no  slat sided Algernon with a crocheted  vest. I don't wear a gold bracelet or a  pink necktie, and I never did. But when  I was starring in domestic comedy seven  evenings and three matinees a week, trying to dig tip nerve and financial backing enough to make my wife that wasn't  then be my wife that is now, I used  to shave so close I had to grow a new  face every fortnight.  "I used to put my trousers between  the matresscs to give 'em a crease sharp  enough to cut all my poker friends, and  I used to wear shirts that looked like  "I'm a lonesome kind of an old thing,  and I wasn't strong for that reform idea  in tho first place. If I'd had company  I'd "have 'showed speed. Imt you take it  from me it's a pleggy sight easier to say  'Let's us reform' and make it foot, up  r.jjlit in the end than it is to say, 'Nov.  you reform,' and let ifc go at. that.  "You got to give 'cm credit, though.  They keep at it. If anything don't suit  'em (hey don't brood over ifc.  "They don't 'let concealment, like _  worm r the bud, feed on their damask  cheek,' as the foreigner with the pointed  whiskers used to say. They don't sit  'like Patience on a monument smiling  nt grief.' They stand like the Goddess  of Liberty defying the lightning.  "They've got tiie tablets of the' law  under one arm and a frying pan uplifted, symbolic of Xanthippe" looking for  somebody to give her a cross word, nnd  (heir righteous indignation flames up  like (he torch of a gas works, signifying  Hint it's tully as strong on the indignation as it is on lite righteousness.  "And, son, you can't altogether blame  'em. It's a raw deal any way you look  at it. There is simple Sarah, main  squeeze of her own destiny, and the  thrice potent grand arch boss of her own  family. She's mother's onliest one and  a rcvy superior and remarkable female  lady girl person.  "Then along comes a dandy dude with  a seal ring and a lot of bad habits. He  looks her over and she decides to give  him n run for his money. She likes his  sample candy, his sample theatre tickets,  iiis sample line of heated monologue arid  j his simple, confiding nature. She decides he's just as represented, standard  quality, fast dye and crav.nettcd. She  decides tn marry him tip.  "Likewise sho docs so with embroidery  and much circumstance. Then they are  no longer courier and courtee. They  are one. And the only trouble i.iicy have  for ever more is trying to settle which  is the one.  "Yon got to admit they're in wrong  from the start. But, by the great horn  spoon, how about the man?   Watchman.  ���������������������������tell us what of poor little Ilenny. Isn't  he married too?  "He is. He's nearly married to death;  and, take it from me, son, if the average  man and the average woman knew what  was coming off when the minister said  'Let no man put asunder' they'd throw  two double mutual pair of fatal fits  right on the altar steps.  "Well, sir, they find it out after a  while. Marriage is a liberal education,  all light. But every time I chcar any  one sympathizing with a woman'on her.  horrible mistake I always wish they'd  mention the man also as not being exactly tickled fo death with the tray thing9  frame up.

Railroads Obliged to Pay Out Millions  Every  Year for  Damages.  It is said that the amount paid out  by the roads of the United States in 1907  for freight claims was ������������������24,000,000. These  claims originate from various causes,  such as defective cars, careless employees and incorrect classification, but  one agent says that on his road improper handling is responsible for about 22  per cent, of money paid out for freight  claims.  "Another feature contributing very  largely to the amounts wc pay out for  loss aud damage," said the claim agent,  "is defective cars. Our rules say that  each agent must inspect the cars.

"The room was uncommonly open to the admission of light.

Ho  had charge of the royal revenue,   and  was virtual ruler   of thc empire.     But  amid all tl. cares of office, he kneeled.  upon his knees three times a day, and  prayed, and gave thanks before his God,  as he did aforetime.    For these prayers  nothing was neglected.   The administration of justice was not standing still; the  public accounts did not run into confusion;-there was no mutiny in the army,  no rebellion   in thc provinces,- from  any  mismanagement of  his.    Even  his enemies  said:   "Wc shall   find  no  occasion  again--,!, this Daniel, except wo find    it  against him concerning the  law  of his  Gcd."    Tie   found'  leisure    to   rule   thc  realm  of Babylon, and leisure to   pray  three limes a day.   Some would say that  iie must have been a first rale man   of  business to find so much time for prayer.  It would Ik. nearer the  truth  to    say  tant it was his taking so much time to  pray which made him.   so   diligent   and  ?ue.>.-sful in business.   It was from God  that Daniel got his knowledge, his wisdom, and hia skill.    This was the secret  of his being found by thc king ten times  better than all the wise men that were  in   all   his  realm.

The Balkan region nuiy bu called  above all things 'the land of confusion.  Jt is (he land of war, the land of rapine,  of cruelty, of treachery, of tyranny, of  almc..t all thl's evil, bin. above all it  is the land ot' confusion. It has been so  for 1,500 years.  Tho confusion  began  with that invasion of barbarians which overthrow the  Roman Empire.    The  wild tribes  which  riw.pt down over the Carpathians or in  ���������������������������.from the steppes of Russia   found it in  the enjoyment of the Greek and Koiniin  '  civilizations.    Some  of them  swept  on,  some settled down in the region between  .the Adriatic and the Black Sea.   They  tangled   up  tho   civilization   they   found  with their own barbaric customs.   They  created a racial confusion which is still  at th������������������ bottom of all the other confusions  that make up thc Balkan problem.  In a ���������������������������'Vritory not much bigger than  France Acre are to be found to-day thc  d .tin., survivals-of three races going  .back to primitive limes.' The Albanian,  'Rumanian and Greek peoples' are lineal  descendants of peoples who have held  the country since immemorial time...  Thc Albanians are of the eld Hlyria .  stock. Every one knows who the Greeks  are. The Rumanians are nobody quite  knows who, but most likely the Thra-  clans of old days with a strong Roman  modification, not to speak of various  subsequent admixtures.  Mixture indeed is the racial law of'the  'Balkans. Only the Ulyrian blood is  approximately pure. Even the'Greeks  of to-day have a large percentage of  Slavic blood in them.  o The original Bulgars were a J'inno-  Taxtar peaple, akin to the Magyars. But  the race has been so nearly asimilaled  by the'Slavic people, whom they found  in the regions where they settled that  the present ' Lulgari-tn.;, despite the  name, are far more Slav than Turanian  in their, characteristics.  Next after thc Illyrians, or Albanians,  the Serbs aro the purest blooded Balkan  people. But they are a comparatively  i.<cnt arrival. Tho. are probably 90  per cent. Slavic. The race has been only  slightly modified by the peoples whom  they overthrow and intermarried with  when Ihey took possession of Servia,  Bosnia, Herzegovina, Novibazar and  Montenegro, where they now make up a  majority of the population. ���������������������������  Tangle of  Population.  Bui the racial confusion is not in tlie  blood alone.   It is still more remarkable  in the matter of location.  For instance, of thc -_,0O0,00O Bulgars  who live in the Ualkans only about 2,-  700,000 live in Bulgaria itself, while the  rest inhabit Russia, Rumania, Austria,  Hungary and the Turkish provinces, especially Macedonia. On the other hand,  the balance of the 4,000,000 population  of Bulgaria is made up of Turks, Rumanians, Greeks, Gypsies (52,000 of  them), Spanish Jews (27,500), Ta.rtai'3  and samples oi all the other nationalities  . of Europe.  ������������������There are to-day 8,000,000 Serbs, but  only 2,500,000 of'thera live in Servia.  Tlie rest are scattered over Montenegro.  Bosnia, Herzegovina., No vi bazar, Croatia,.  Slavonia, South Hungary, Istria.and .Dal-  matio. In Rumania 92. per'cent, of the  people are VVallachs���������������������������that is, Rumanians  ���������������������������but, only half of the Rumanian race  inhabits that kingdom, the other half  being found in Transylvania, which is  'Ab-trian; in Bessarabia, now under Russian rule; in Servia and m Bulgaria.  Tho Albanians, or Arnauts���������������������������tlicy call  ^~ii.:.Tfi_I. elT Sli_i~petW^^^  kept their territory pretty'fice of  strangers. They are pcrbate the wildest  people in the world, and it is said that  only Pyrrhus the Great ever conquered  the"m_ but besides the '2,000,000 of them  inhabiting Albania, the western shore of  the Adriatic south of Montenegro, there  are 200,000 of them in Greece'and 100,-  000 iu southern Italy.  As for Macedonia, lo describe the effusion _of races.is almost impossible. Tho  characteristic fact is the tendency of fill  the races to flock by themselves." There  i������������������ mixture in thc towns aud :r..i . aro a  few villages in which Turks, ltulgars and  Greeks live together, but for tho most  part each of these three j .oples has its  own settlements.  You will find a Bulgarian village more  Bulgarian than any in Prince Ferdinand's  dominions, and a few miles from it there  will be a Greek village as Greek as any  in 'the Peloponnesus. Making a triangle  with the other two, a Turkish village  will be found vihcre every man wearg a  fV* and every woman goes veiled.  The Religious War.  Thc tangle of religions is almost equally remarkable. There are the Mohammedans and there are the Christians, but  there are Christians of thc Orthodox  Greek Church, whom the Roman Catholics call schismatic, and there are  Christians of the other Greek Church,  ���������������������������whom the Roman Catholics call orthodox  and who are allied to Rome through the  hierarchy of the Grecian Kingdom.  It may fairly be said that the hatred  between the two sects of Christians is  often more bitter than that between  Christian and Turk. It is a leading if  not the leading factor in the Macedonian  troubles of to-day, and the unspeakable  atrocities which make Macedonia the  most distressful country in the world  are just as frequently perpetrated by  Greek Catholics upon Bulgarian orthodox churchmen or by Bulgarians upon  Greek Catholics as by the Mohammedans  upon cither.  The Greek Church is the church of the  majority of the people and it is the State  church in Bulgaria, Servia and Ron.  mania. In Bosnia those of the Greek  orthodox communion are about 43 per  cent, of the population, the Mohamme  dans about ;:,-> and tiie lloman Catholics  21.  Jn Albania the great majority of'the  people are Mohammedan... tlumg'h fiercely hostile to the Turkish Government.  j There are, however, about 200,000 Chris-  Linus equally divided between the two  sects who hate each other, the Mohammedans, Albanians and the Turks, with  an impartial hatred.  Bulgarian   Greatness.  All thc multiform 'hatred? which keep  Hie Balkan peoples seething in disorder  and bloodshed are centuries old in their  origin.  There were the Bulgarians, for instance, who already in the sixth century  were at war with Lhe emperors of Constantinople, who, converted io Christianity in the ninth century, reached such  power in the tenth" that their ruler,  Symeon, assumed the title of Czar of all  the Bulgarias���������������������������the title just revived by  Prince Ferdinand���������������������������and ruled over a territory extending from th. Black Sea- to  the Adriatic and almost from the Carpathians south to Adrianople.  This great monarchy was overthrown  about the year 1000 A. D.. and we find  the Byzantine Emperor, Basil II., completing its subjection in 1020, when he  stormed the palace of Lychnidus, and  foiuid in it a treasure of*10,000 pounds  weight of gold, equal in value, perhaps,  to.,$2,000,000. His method of signalizing  his conquest was characteristic ot^ the  age. He caused 15,000 of his captives  to be blinded. But to one out of every  100 men he spared a single eye, in order  that they might lead the whole lamentable phalanx to their King, a fugitive 'in  some mountain fastness. It is related  that he died of horror on beholding them.  Is it wonderful that the Bulgar hates  the Greek?  Servia's  Heroic  Perio'd.  Servia also has its heroic period. In  J050 Michael, its Grand Shupan, was  recognized as an independent sovereign  by Pope Gregory VII. Its power reached  a climax between 1331 and 1335, when  Stephen Dushan called himself the Emperor of the Rumclians and ruled over a  territory which embraced Bosnia, Albania, Macedonia, Thessaly, part of Bulgaria and Greece as far-as the Isthmus  of Corinth.  Stephen Dushan is the great hero of  Servian legend... "'He lies buried in the  Studenitza Monastery in Servia, and  when King Peter wa* called to the  throne he made a pilgrimage thither and  kissed the dead Emperor's brow.  The. remains, wrapped in their ancient  winding sheet, are encased iu a coffin of  black wood and on the breast lies a golden crucifix containing in the ecntre a  particle of the True Cross. Thero. is an  outer coffin also which was presented  by the ancestors of King Peter, the Kar-  ageorgovitches. It- is a massive affair  of silver with a crimson velvet top and  a great silver cross upon it.  When the Obrenovitches were in power  in Servia this gorgeous casement wit  hidden away in the cellar oi'the monastery and King Alexander and Queen  Praga presented a wonderful set of  golden vestments to be used in the great  ceremonies of the monastery church.  Nowadays the vestments are in hiding  in the cellar and the silver coffin is in  ,evidence again. The Servians expect the  Emperor Stephen to reappear a3 a sort  of a Messiah.  Turkish Conquest. '  The overthrow of Servia was finally  completed".} yHhe^Sultun���������������������������Mohammed^!!���������������������������  who, having taken Constantinople in  145.'.. devoted his attention to lhe Balkan region. From this time until the  beginning of the nineteenth century Servia had practically no history, but an  offshoot from its people kept up the  fight against the Turks unceasingly and  without ever being overcome.  After the battle of Kossovo, in 1.S9,  a band oi refugees under one Ivo, the  black, took possession of- the rugged  mountain tract just above Callaro, on  the Adriatic shores. The region wus  named Tzarnagora, or tlto Black Mountain, the Montenegro of to-day,  Jvo is another of the heroes whom thc  Serbs expect to come back some day  nnd help drive the Turk-, out of Europe.  The -Montenegrins still wear a badge of  mourning in their caps for him. His  spirit has certainly been continually  olive in the little-realm that ho founded. Under its Prince Bishops, who succeeded each other for more than three  centuries from uncle to nephew, Montenegro hu3 not only resisted Turkish  conquest but has frequently sent armies out into Xovibazar and Macedonia  and inflicted tremendous losses upon  the soldiers'of the Porte.  The Great Awakening.  It is a singidar circumstance thai the  awakening ugainst the Turkish domination which lasted for nearly 350 years  after thc conquest showed itself in several regions about the same time. Just  at the period when Alexander Ypsilante  was putting an.end to Turkish misrule  in the country wltich is now Rumania,  the Greeks were starting that heroic  struggle for independence in which Lord  Byron played a picturesque part. The  Servians simultaneously begun a bitter  and determined fight to throw off Turkish rule.  In 180-1 Kara George, who was certainly a peasant and perhaps a brigand,  finding that he wu. down on a list of  persona to be massacred, took to the  mountains and raised the standard of  revolt. He defeated the Turkish foiee  and. in 1300 he took possession of Belgrade.  The Russians helped hini for a while,  then deserted him, and he was obliged  "THECGWBdY   -  - BARONET.

The Turks  swept over the country in 1814 with  murder and pillage. ��������������������������� They crucified 800  Christians at Belgrade. But now one  of the lieutenants of Kara George began  to loom up with new strength. This as  ililosch Obrenovitch, also a peasant,  a swineherd who had acted as spy _"cr  Kara George in thc early part of the  struggle. His bands in 1S15 made sain  headway against the Turks that the Sultan was fortsed to make terms with him.  Kra George came back into the.country, but Miloseh betrayed him to the  Turks, 4who killed him. Rivalry thus removed, Miloseh had himself proclaimed  i_   1817  hereditary, prince  of  Servia.  In 1830 the autonomy of the principality was recognized by the Porte and  then began its turbulent career as a  European State. The descendants of  Kara. George and .of Miloseh intrigued  and conspired for the throne.  'J'he Obrenovitches were deposed' iu  3842 and the Karagorgovitches seized  the title of prince. A few years later a  prince of their line was assassinated and  thc Obrenovitches came back, and thus  it was that Prince Milan, an Obrenovitch, found himself on the throne at the  era of the Eusso-Turkish Avar.  Another region in which the standard  of revolt was raised in the beginning of  the nineteenth century was the southern section of Albania, where the famous  or infamous Ali Pasha, the lioTt of Jan-  ina, established for a few brief years a  sort of independent power. Those who  are interested in-his career can gain a  good view of it on easy terms from  Maurus Jokai's novel "The Lion of Jan-  ina."  Bulgarian   Atrocities.  All these struggles in th. early part  of the nineteenth century brought free-  ^o=iTr__^ne~degree~o"r"auother_to "th<r plir?  ticipating states. Another fierce struggle against the Turks began in 1875.  Jn these matters there seems-to be a  sort of contagion. It is certain that au  epidemic of unrest ran through thc  Balkan peninsula in that year. Bulgaria, which had. been so enslaved as to  be called the peasant slate, after centuries of submission, showed signs of  awakening. The brutalities of Turkish  rule seemed to bo_brought to a head Iry  the establishment of a Cireassion colony  in the heart of the country.  The peasantry revolted and the Basin  Bazouks, the Turkish irregular soldiery,  maintained especially for purposes of  atrocity, were sent in lo put down the  uprising.  Tho populutiou. of towns and villages  were wiped out. The houses were burned,  the women outraged or carried off to  Turkish harems, children were slaughtered in their mother's arms, and men  were burned alive in tlie churches, hundreds at a time. When the news of these  doings were spread through ICurope by  Jaimarius Aloysius .lacGalian, the famous correspondent of the I-iidon Daily  Telegraph, there was an uncontrollable  outburst of horror, and thc rule of the  Turk iu the devastated regions was  doomed.  But simultaneously with Uic Bulgarian  insurrection thc Servians under Prince  Milan had declared war on Turkey. The  troops sent against them also wasted  their country with murder and pillage.  Ju Bosnia and Herzegovina was also u  revolt and also more atrocities.  Montenegro declared war on (ho Sultan and an army of brave mountaineers  marched into Macedonia. Wherever the  Sultan's troops went to oppose them,  there also were unspeaahle cruelties  committed on thc Christian population.  It was expected that England would  take the lead in ending this domination  of murder, lust and robbery; but England, under Gladstone, temporized, and  negotiated; Russia went to war, and  with the Rumanians, Servians and Montenegrins as her allies, drove the Turks  back past Plevna and Shipka Pass, over  the Balkans into -Rumelia and as far  south almost as Adrianople, when the  Sultan gave way and'signed the treaty  of San  Stefano, by which    he.

King Milan found the. debaucheries  of Paris nnd Vienna more to his taste  than ruling over the Servians. lie abdicated the throne in 188., turning' it  over to Alexander,, still so young that a  Council of Regency had to be established.  One fine day when he was about. 18  Alexander asserted himself, lie seized  the reins of power and clapped all the  regents in prison, and then followed l-l  years of capricious rule, such as might  be expected of a boy wlio was half a  genius, half an idiot.  Tlie end came in June, 1903. ' Some say  it was an Austrian plot to cause chaos  which would have justified thc Austro-  Hungarian Kaiser in seizing and annexing Servia in his dominions. Others  hold that the endurance* of .Alexander  had reached-its limit and that it was  to prevent savage despoti.m and masa-  crc that regicide was decided on.  Anyway, the fact.is that on the night  of June 10th the regiments quartered in  the capital surrounded the royal palace,  and after a.long and fevered-search, in  the course of which some faithful attendants were struck.down. a band of officers found Alexander and "Draga hiding  in their ni .lit robes and killed them  both.

MOFFET  Bniorby  Building Enderby Right  PERHAPS the wish is  I father of the thought;  we do not know. But  Enderby of the future is  pictured in our minds as a  | city of great beauty and in-  i dustrial importance. We see  the feeder of another transcontinental railway entering  the Okanagan, the steel rails  following the Spallumcheen  river down the .Mabel Lake  valley, into Enderby, thence  south to the immense mineral fields of theSimilkameen  which are yet undeveloped,  and opening a country greater in resources than even the  Okanagan now is. We see  a great power house erected  at the Skookum Chuck, supplying juice to all the Okanagan towns, and the power  for an electric railway that  will tap Grand Prairie and  all the vast country between  these points.  Some may smile at this,  but it is coming, sooner perhaps than most of us realize.  Last July, Mr. F. Waby was  slashing a few acres on his  Arlington Heights garden  home. Mr. Wet-blanket came  along and  was doing.  '���������������������������Clearing,"  derby's future; seeing the  city in the light of what it is  to be, not what it is, it behooves us to build right when  we build at all. The laying  of 2-plank sidewalks where  If $3,000 or $4,000 were put  into the purchase and planting of a city square now, it  would be paid for in ten years  and nobody would feel the  strain, whereas if we wait  they'should be 4-f oot and 6- j ten years, we shall pay ten  foot is false economy.    The' or twenty times the present  he  ans.  Apent for thc Fnir banks-Morse Gasoline en_inn  what  _ efed Mr.  Waby.  "What are you clearing  this land for?" persisted Mr.  Wetblanket.  "To crop it,"answeredthe  man who knew how.  "You'll never live to crop  it!"drawled Mr. Wetblanket.  But Mr. Waby is supplying Enderby with succulent  spring vegetables already  from this land.  You see, we must know  how and understand before  we can realize how rapidly  things can be done if we get  after them.  _^T^ith_this^vJsion=jof=_En_.  laying of a 1-inch water pipe  on the side streets, where  the water main should be  extended is a waste of public  funds.  When we build, let us  build so it does not have to  be done over again every  year.  Aid. Evans, at the next  meeting of the City Council  will introduce a by-law to  raise the sum of $4,000 for  the erection of a City Hall.  The intention is, of course,  that it shall be erected on  the city's lot, corner Cliff and  George streets. Every citizen realizes the immediate  need of a city hall, but there  is a difference of opinion as  to the advisability of erecting  it on the proposed site. ^ It  is the common conception,  whether a mistake or not,  that a city hall and court  house should be set out  amongst the trees, on. the  city square, and not chucked  up against the corner grocery. Not that this conception is at all logical, but it is  custom. There is no doubt  but that the corner grocery  ���������������������������the commercial side of life  ���������������������������is just as dignified and  quite as important as the  judicial or the religious, and  "it need not in any way detract from the dignity of  either. But the thought  back of the objection raised  building- on the corner lot  value, and we should, in ad  dition to this, lose the ten  year's growth in the trees.  The idea as we understand  it is to ask the city council to  increase the proposed loan  from $4,000 to a sum sufficient to purchase and plant  trees upon a square suitable  for park purposes, on which  the city hall will be erected.  Just what position.the provincial government will take  in the matter is yet to be  seen. Two months ago the  assurance was given of the  government's willingness to  join with the city in the erection of the city hall and  court house, but since that  assurance was given, all the  efforts of the city to get a  definite statement from the  government have resulted in  failure. It is not Enderby's  policy to wait on the provincial government. The city  submitted a plain business  proposition, giving the province every advantage. But1  the city is not going to play  the dilly-dally game.   If the  provincial government does  not know a good thing when  it sees it, it is not the city's  fault; if the government will  not act, the city will not delay the erection of the city  hall. It will be erected this  summer.  We believe the people of  Enderby are so much in  earnest in the matter of  building the city "from the  ground up," that they will  not stop at an additional expense of $3,000 or $4,000. if  there can be acquired for the  outlay an asset so valuable  as a city park and court  house grounds. Occasionally  we find an individual who  looks upon these things as an  uncalled-for expense, but we  may as well attempt to make  home without flowers as to  attempt to build a city without parks and play grounds.  These are the essentials in  city life, not the non-essentials. They make for., the-  betterment of the city, just as  the flower garden makes for  the betterment of the home.

In the report of the Presbyterian Synod, recently held, the  statement is made that "while  there has been no campaign by  local option methods, ... in  several places where the municipal elections were fought out on  this issue temperance candidates  were elected. In Armstrong,  Langley, Central Park and Mt.  Pleasant and Fairview, successful efforts were made."  All of which is a surprise to  the Armstrong Advertiser, and  causes it to remark: "So the  municipal election's were fought  out on a temperance issue! This  will be news to many ratepayers.  The only issues before the ratepayers were the borrowing of  money for permanent road work,  or an increase in taxes and the  repeal of the dog tax. Never a  word relating to temperance,  when each candidate had his say  on nomination day. But according to report, temperance  was an issue. Is it to be understood that the leaders of this  party on the quiet made it so?  Does this explain their great activity on election day? . . . Why  this method of accomplishing an  object? Nothing was ever gained  by fooling the people. Is a party  that has so much good on its side  afraid to come out openly and  squarely? The majority must  always rule whether the minority  like it or not, but the ratepayers  did not have a chance to decide;  it was not before them."

Many Interesting Happenings Reported from
Great Britain.
(London Daily Mail.)
3,000,000 TONS  OF  SNOW.
Au army of 30,000 men, whose weapons were shovels, more than 1.000 carts,
..nit by thc hundreds of tons, many snow-
plows, miles of hose-pipe, and hissing
jets of steam, entered into the fight
which was waged throughout London on
\Y_dnt.clay to rid the strce'ts of their
clogging caq>c-t.
Tli. storm of thc previous night had
deposited more than 3,000.000 tons of
snow uipon thc streets of London���������a
calculation made possible by the street
cleansing department of the ci'ty corporation.
Thc sti-uggle to sweep away the snow
began in th. silent hours before dawn,
when tli. great city lay white and unsullied. It continued when London's mil-
liana, awakening to the movement of .a
new day, had trodden the floor of whi'ce
into a mire of dirty brown. At midday,
when a, fog crept up that matched in
color the dispirtiing mounds that lined
the streets, the snow-shovellers still toiled���������.a damp, cheerless host���������under the
gleam of the street lamps, with sodden
feet and numbed hands. But many of
them, although they shivered and were
hungry, conjured up a whistle or thc
fragment of a song. For weeks���������in many
cii.es for months���������they had stood about
miserably at street corners. Now they
were working hard tuid earning money���������
only a shilling or so, it is true, but they
blessed the coming of the snow. For
Wednesday's clearing work in tlie streets
.���������ind for. the two previous days, London
will have io pay a bill of quite  ������20,000.
the English.situation, ,that the German
Patent Law contains a paragraph which
could be employed for reUlia'.orv purposes, but that it is practically "illusory"
because few Englishmen arc in possession
of German patents. .    .
The Berliner Tagebla_t urges Germany
to open negotiations with Britain for the
conclusion of a reciprocity patent treaty
on lines of thc one recently en'tercd into
with America.       ' .
Widespread alarm is manifest in German industrial circles over growing indications of the rigorous enforcement of
the new British Patent Act.
The German chemical industry particularly is filled with misgiving.. It has information to .the effect" that the so-called
"anti-Gcrman'.radc crusade" will shortly
be aggravated by thc passage of laws
conferring preferential treatment upon
imports of artificial indigo from India.
rJ _is would deal a heavy blow to German
chemical factories, which have built up
an enormous irade in that product in
Great Britain.
German merchants are also perturbed"
by the announcement that a private organization .has been formed to keep
close watch upon foreign-plated .articles
in Britain, and report to the" Comptroller
of Patents if the patentees are seeking
to evade the provisions of thc new Act.
It  is poinW out, in commenting on
inons on Monday questioned the Prime
Minister upon the advisability of restoring to the Prayer Book the following
prayer from the Liturgy, of Edward VI.:
The earth is Thine,. 0 Lord, and all
that is contained therein. . . . We
hearti'y pray Thee to 'send Thy Holy
Spirit into the hearts of them that pos-

manner of covetous worldlings,' tut so

Mr. Asquith, in reply, said his hon.
friend had, he thought, done a, public service by reviving-the recollection of tins
remarkable prayer, but he did not think
any advantage would be gained by his
taking the steps suggested.
The matter then dropped.

The air distributes evenly over the entire

A striking notice printed in red ink
has been posted in the windows of many
ironmongers' r shops in London calling

person over thc age of sixteen who

causes injury by burning or scalding to
a child under seven.
The policy of (],e 1'olice Department of
London is unique and differs from that
oi other cities iu 0110 very important
..'Articular. A patrolman, or a ' ''constable,''' as they officially call-the members of thc rank and file, are commended for the arrests they do not
make. Tlie constable who brings in the
..mall.st' number of prisoners,' who appear, most infrequently as a prosecuting witness in a .police' court; receives
the highest credit. The officer who can
settle difficulties on .is beat outside
tlw station', and does not trouble the
police .judges is considered thc most
capable and efficient iu the. performance of his duty.
This, of course, does not refer to
penal offences, to burglary, larceny,
murder or similar, crimes, but to petty
offence,, such as assaults and-disorderly conduct which, make up the
greater part - of the 'business of the
police courts of our cities. When the
London policeman finds two men quarrelling he endeavors to reconcile "them.
When he finds a drunken man he takes
him home; when lie catches a boy pilfering he talks to him kindly and cautions him not to do it again"; after the
second offence he takes him to oho of
���������the many private institutions for the
reformation of the young, and thiis protects the urchin from the stigma that
a police court always,leaves.
Thus the policeman, is the friend
rail .r-than the foe of the people on his
beat, and they know that he is trying
to help them up rather than" keep them
down. 'That accounts, in a'great, degree, for the respect that is shown the
constables -in London, and'for the influence they exert. Nowhere else in
thc world is police authority obeyed so
promptly and perfectly as in-London,
and the criminal statistics very seldom
show any cases of "resisting an officer,"
which is so frequent an offence in this
country. Nor do you often hear of a
London policeman being killed or injured in the performance of his duty.
The policeman is- strictly .enjoined by
ihe regulations to remember at all times
that he has no personal -.. interest.- to
serve in making an arrest "or securing
a conviction of the offender. He is required to practise a self-control- which
would not be expected of any other occupation. He" knows that, he will ��������� be
praised if hc can settle a case out of
court, and if it should ever appear that
he has improperly attempted to. influ-'
ence the judgment of 11 magistrate
against.the prisoner he knows that-he
will be severely dealt with.
The same consideration is enjoined
upon officers in charge of ploice stations. No prisoner is treated as guilty;
they act on the theory that sympathy
and kindness will cure crime quicker
limn severity.

he has-the appearance of a gentleman,

"Do you know of any woman who ever received any
benefit from taking Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound?"
-If any woman who is suffering-with any ailment peculiar
to her sex will ask her neighbors this question, .she will be
surprised at the result. There is hardly a community in
this country where women cannot be found who have been
restored to health by this famous old remedy, made
exclusively from a simple formula of roots and herbs.
During the past 30 years we have published thousands
of letters from these grateful women who have been cured
by Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound, and never
in all that time have we published a testimonial without
the writer's special permission. Never have we knowingly
published a testimonial that was not truthful and genuine.
Here is one just received a few days ago. If anyone doubts
that this is a true and honest statement of a woman's experience with Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound write
and ask her. .

One doctor told me it was ulcers of the uterus, and another
told me it was a fibroid tumor. Xo one knows what I suffered.
I would always be worse at certain periods, and never was regular, and the bearing-down pains were terrible. I was very ill
in bed, and the doctor told me I would have to have an operation, and that I might _ie during the operation. I wrote to my
sister about it and sho advised mc to take Lydia E. Pinkham's

found it the best medicine in the world for female troubles, for
it has cured me, and I did not have to have the operation after
all. Tlie Compound also helped me while passing through

.���������_.l THE ENDERBY PRESS AND WALKER'S WEEKLY  May 20, 1909  "Our Jimmy" Killed.  One of the  saddest accidents  which  has  ever  disturbed the  community occurred on Wednesday evening last, resulting in the  death  of  Jimmy  Baker.    The  little fellow was returning to his  home about 6 o'clock with a colt  which had been pastured near  Mr.  Finn's  place  on Schubert  street, and to better carry the  chain with which the horse was  tethered wound it around his arm  and had taken  a turn  or two  about his body.     It is supposed  he was playing with his lacrosse  stick, when the animal took fright  and started to run, the boy holding back as best he could.   He  held his  feet successfully until  within a few feet of the railway,  when he fell and  was dragged  with terrific violence against the  rails, the impact fracturing his  skull and killing him  instantly.  The body was dragged across the  railway where the rope became  unwound, thus freeing the animal.   The little lad was known  by almost everybody in the community, where his bright ways  had made him a general favorite,  and the sudden and violent manner of his death is keenly regretted by all.   The bereaved family  are deeply pitied and the warmest sympathy of the citizens is  extended to them  in their distress. ���������������������������Vernon Okanagan.
