DISTRICT BETWEEN ENDERBY AND MARA SWEPT BY A DESTRUCTIVE BUSH FIRE  I.  XX  XX  r>c  The wild fire which swept the  district north of Enderby Monday afternoon and evening, was  really of a very serious nature,  and if ever government assistance  were demanded, it is demanded  now. ' Not by way of charity,  nor as a fund for the needy���������������������������  though there  are  several who  i    lost everything, even to the beds  they   slept   upon,���������������������������but   where  government assistance is needed  badly and at once, is in replacing  the miles of fencing which was  burned.     From the Mack place  to Mara, a distance of nine miles  or more, there is said to be not a  line fence standing. .   In some  instances  the  fences  are completely destroyed, while in others  there are wide gaps  burned in  them.   This, in an open range  country, and  at  this season of  the year, with the open feeding  'lands burned over, is a very seri-  ,  bus matter.   If the farmers are  to have any crops, they must get  them in, and if the crops are to  be protected from 'the roaming  herds fences must be built.;   The  farmers touched by the fire are  .   not able to plant and care for the  crops, rebuild cabins and homes,  and replace the fences all at the  same time.     And very few of  them are in a position to hire it  done. - One cannot help the other  for all are. in the same position.  Assistance must come from some  quarter,   and   the   government  seems to be the proper source.  Early Monday morning many  smouldering bush fires that had'  been smoking for days, were  fanned into life by a stiff wind  blowing from the south. Little  alarm was felt, for the fires were  at a safe distance from the bush.  ==^ButJby=noon_th_e___jwind_._ had _ in-  J. Emeny lost fences and one  barn.  J. Lambert lost ��������������������������� a stable and  contents, where was also stored  the personal effects and household goods of Gerald Neve.  On the west side of the'river,  J.

Enderby, B. a  Pa says: "When you forget about heaven and hell, and  make your business your religion, society has no mortgage  on your soul." .  ������������������������������������_  :_>*___������������������  FROM ONE MAN'S POINT OF VIEWi  ���������������������������w*s_:  ,*������������������������������������o*c  creased in velocity, and was the  strongest that ever has been felt  here.  About noon, Mr. A. H. Duncan  whose farm lies two miles north  of Enderby, on the east side of  the river, drove to Enderby. He  noticed the fire, at that time two  miles to the west of him and on  the opposite side of the river.-  The wind came in heavy gusts.  It veered in every direction. The  fire caught in the bush and started  northeast. It jumped the river  and swept the east bank and  lightly-wooded plateau. The  Duncan place was. burned over,  Mr. Duncan losing everything;  home and contents, barn and  sheds, implements, feed, a valuable mare, chickens,"1 cows, etc.  Driven by the wind, the fire  jumped clearing and stream as if  they were not there. The new  barn of Mr. A. D. Stroulger was  quickly consumed, with 20 tons  of hay; also lumber for a new  house, and all outbuildings.  W. Monk, E. B. Huffman, the  Mack Brothers, C. S. Handcock,  R. Waddell, all lost heavily, in  cordwood, ties, fencing, etc., but  saved their buildings.  D. McManus lost everything  buthis.house;pigs, chickens, outhouses, barn and implements,  together with. three tons of hay  and a ton of oats, just hauled  to the barn.  IT is not the spirit of British Columbians,  men who are accustomed to hardships  and fighters for the redemption of the  vast wild lands by the hand of man, ���������������������������it is  not the spirit of these' men, I say, to cry  in the face of calamity, or to run to the  parent government when hurt, as?,, a child  runs to the mother, to have the pain of a  -bumped=head-or���������������������������a���������������������������pinched^finger���������������������������kissed-  away. We have seen British Columbians,  themselves in need of assistance, turn the  key of silence upon their own suffering and  reach into the pocket for the last dollar to  help another.    .  The man who can go into the bush and  carve out a home for himself; bring into  submission the wild lands, and make them  bring forth fruits and grain where there  was but a tangle of unaerbrush and moss-  covered fallen timber, is not the man to  throw up his hands when adversity knocks  at his door.  But when he sees the result of years of  toil and hardship swept from him; when  all in.the world that he cherishes is made  ashes before his very eyes, it is but natural  for the heart to grow faint and the Ego  within to feel the pangs of discouragement.  The fire of Monday left many homes in  the district heaps of ashes. In magnitude  of loss and acuteness of suffering, there  have been calamities compared with which  this is nothing. But for the men who lost  as some of these have lost: Their homes  gone, implements gone, live stock gone;  nothing left them but the scanty clothes on  their backs; an4.^their farms laid open to  the incursion of meandering herds, 'we  doubt if assistance to anyone could come  more acceptably.  An appeal is being made to the provincial  government to investigate the needs of the  sufferers with the objectof giving such assistance as may be required; : "That assistance of some land' is'necessary- is apparent  if these men are to be set- upon their feet."  All they have asked for is government help  in rebuilding the,, fences', "destroyed. " Yet  we know of several who are left with absolutely nothing to begin' anew the fight  they, have carried" on so long; their .fields  scorched, orchards.blasted, and.not an implement or.a tobl'to set to work with.-. -  Our farmers, many of them, have been  severely dealt with in the past yeai _ First  the defunct farmers exchange-came up  short some $13,000; then' the fofty-dollar  note racket; then the failure of the B. C.  Exchange to make good. In all, say $20,000  that they should have but haven't got. The  ,men^who_lost_byL_Mondg-y._. ^re were ai_������������������  losersln the earlier transactions." They  are therefore in no condition to stand the  loss just sustained; their reserve is gone.  That the government will lend the required assistance we feel sure. It could  not give to a more worthy object and one  that would meet with the approval of all  .classes of_people.  THE property owners of Enderby are  apparently somewhat indifferent to  the public improvement by-law or were  so dead sure that the by-law would carry  that they did not think it was necessary to  turn out to vote. One hundred and thirty-  six property owners were entitled to vote  and only 24 voted. Of these only one  voted against the by-law. This is, to all  intents and purposes, a unanimous vote in  favor of the by-law, and should encourage  the City Council to keep up the good work.  I  T is said by the. old timers that the  weather this spring is an exact reproduction of that of the fire and flood  year of 1894, when several districts in the  province, notably the Fraser River, were  largely inundated by the floods. If this be  true, the excitement is not all over yet.  We have had the fire, and there is not much  doubt but what the high water will arrive  on schedule time. <     ._���������������������������_  Rothsay Lumber Co., and a portion of the lumber in' the yard,  were destroyed, and it was only .-'  by hard fighting by the section-,  hands that the Mara bridge and .,  Mara station'were saved. ���������������������������  ���������������������������   The; home' of Mrs..

He reports that about  half "of the lumber was saved.  The unfortunate thing about  the fire was the suddeness of its !  coming and the uncertainty of its  course.   Every man had to fight  alone and in many cases for hours ���������������������������  unaided.   Indeed, the people of  Enderby .did not. learn- of,.the/;   serious nature of. the blaze until  late Monday night, and knew  nothing of Mara's misfortune  until Tuesday morning. Man-,  ager Stevens of the lumber mill  sent a wagon load to fight the  fire at 10 o'clock Monday night.  Mr. Harvey and Mr. Taylor  headed another party, but there  was no general response to the  call for help, because so .few  heard of it.  Stories of the heroism and fortitude of the men fighting single-  handed for. hours at .a time, are  many.     Frank Hassard 'fought  the blaze at his place from 6 a.m.  until 11 p. m. without a bite to  eat and alone.   But he saved his ;  buildings.   W.  Monk fought 24  hours without rest and he is tern-'.  porarily blind from the heat and  smoke.   D. McManus fought for"  hours for his home from behind  a fir tree  which  was charred  black. . The clothes he wore fell  to pieces when he took them off.    ,  A wet blanket was his only salvation.  _v������������������  " 1   *-���������������������������  ������������������- '-_���������������������������' .

There is probably not a country house,  between New York and'' Jiar Jlurhor  that 1ms not its bridge table? spread in  the drawing rooms not for bridge but for  the playing"of these puzzle games. There  aw. trays manufactured especially to  hold the. pieces. They are flat wood  boards with a railing about an inch high  about their four sides.  Their great merit is the protection  I!icy afford against the loss of the separate pieces. That is of ihe utmost importance, for a lifelong friendship has  I .on known to snap under the heinous  .rime of returning a puzzle with one  piece missing. When ifc is understood  ��������������������������� that some of these puzzles contain as '.  many a.s twelve hundred separate .pieces |  "a may be seen how easy it is to lose  one.  .In order to make it possible to spend a  little more money on the game there are  boards covered with damask or brocade  like  the   fancy  bridge  tables.  Jn some  houses  the  trays   ior  the puzzles    are  covered with the same silks  that  decorate the tops oi' the bridge tables.   One  of lhe most difficult things about these  , puzzles   has   been   to  make   them  cost  ���������������������������nonc-y.    Their  materials, are  so   cheap  and'their manufacture so simple tliat it  is a sorrow to the shopkeepers that they  cannot make them costly.  So far the maximum price is $15. The '  price always depends on the number ot  pieces in the puzzle.  The pictures which are cut up may be  bought for little, the thin boards on  which they are pasted cost a few cents  only: and the jig saw which serves to  make hundreds of them is not au expensive investment in itself. The most skilful players of the game are no longer  content to buy puzzles.. They find their  principal pleasure in making their own.  One of the most .-successful amateurs  in this field.is a Westchester millionaire  whose health lm snot been good for the  last year. lie has pre-ented his friends  with'many of these puzzles sawed and  finished by his own hands.  Another succc.sfu! amateur manufacturer is a physician who had for a  long time been in poor health and found  nothing to afford him lhe same diver-  id on as the use of the jigsaw. He is a  man of loo much table to be satisfied  wHh the ordinary colored pictures that  i=H*isiir^lie-=a-vc-r-a.g_=_iiajiiu'a.Uire-i^aiid=Jui  i\~cs photographs of paintings from the  galleries of Europe.  As ho makes tiie pictures from brown  photographs, they are vavy difficult to  pul together, the difference between the  varied shades being slight.

The mo-l .successful of  lhe woni'm is in Boston. AYith ihe  a.si-(unec of two helpers she l- said to  have earned .i..!>0 a "week for years.  One New York woman supplies all the  puzzles sold by a stationer on Fifth avenue and is thus spared the expense of  advertising and delivering her work, although she does noc of course get all  the profits she would if she distributed  them  herself.  Tlie Woman's Exchange receives puzzles from various consigners aud some of  the pictures, sold there are among tho  most beautiful to be bought in town.  Fin- up on the west side is the home  of a woman ���������������������������''who has averaged i'or tho  last eight months a profit ot" $1,000 a  month. Jler puzzles, which arc very well  known to the fiends, are too simple for  the expert, and for that reason especially recommended to beginners.  Then: is not a puzzle fiend worthy, of  the name -who does not know ihe peculiarities of every maker of the. toys.  They can Lcil you just which woman  makes this,most difficult, which manages  to saw out the largest number of separate piece--, which uses the prettiest combinations of color and which charges the  cheapest prices.  The demand for the puzzles is too  great to be supplied by the amatcui  workers alone, and the toy factories  have turned them out in large numbers.  Oue of the fashionable hotels near the  city has used a puzzle fo advertise its  advantages.  A young woman who had made money  by conducting a hotel on the plan of a  country house recently made an addition  to it, aud in order to make this known  to her patrons she scut them and other  possible guests a picture puzzle which  formed a view of the hotel as it is at  present. 'While it was not especially  difficult to put together, the guests who  worked it out are not likely to forget  the name or appcaranec.of the hotel.  In spite of the essentially unintellec-  tual character of the puzzle pictures  they have been known to make victims  of intelligent people, and there are some  who have found ifc enough pleasure to  work out these thing:? to give up bridge  in their favor. Yet nobody believes that  it will ever prove a. substitute for the  game or even rival it in popularity.  '.rius picture puzzles have found their  greatest popularity from the fact that  they can be left at any moment and returned to. The more elaborate kind  with many pieces may supply entertainment for the empty minutes of a whole  week. Enthusiastic players of course  will not leave the table until the pieces  are fitted together, even if it keeps them  at work all night. Les; zealous phtyci .,  however, are willing to come and go.  It was this quality of the picture pu������������������.  zii . that made them successful as n .sinw  nii'i' diversion.

Thousands of Miles of Railroads Now  Operated by Telephone���������������������������It Has  Succeeded Where Other Systems  Have Failed���������������������������Precautions Against  Errors.  (New York Sun.)  It is as easy to run trains by telephone as to call up a friend and invite  him to dinner. Tlie toon who rim the  great raihoads of the country arc find:  ing this out; with the result that many  thousands of miles of railroad are now  being conducted almost exclusively by  telephone. Not louj;" ago'the'superintendent of telegraph of a great western  railroad explained why the Morse instrument-is giving, way to the human  voice;  "The use of the telephone is so rapid  in every way and so much fore flexible  thai: _h . telegraph that by it the des-  patcher is enabled to get far more detailed information about exactly what  each train is doing. Even when occasion requires he can talk directly with  the conductor or engineer. lie is thus  brought so much nearer the actual details of train movement on the line.  "It is far more easy to train telephone  operators than to secure telegraphers.

There is much to be gained by making  use of men in their own home towns.  Our telegraph service was at its best  when this condition existed to some extent, and discipline lessened in proportion as we have had to import telegraph  talent."  --- While railroading-by- telephone.seems  like  an   innovation,   it  was  really  put  into serious use thirtecu years ago.    It  \ was then adopted  by the Terminal As-  i .-ociation    at.    .St.    Louis, whie hiu 139-3  creeled   a   new  Union     station    ' with  | twenty-odd   tracks   running' north   and  I south, all of which hud to be available  for trains running east and west.    To  complicate   matters   all   trains   had   to  back in.   making it necessary  to focus  all  the  tracks  in  the  station  at      one  point,  from  which  a  number of track.  curved east aud west to meet tlio ���������������������������main  lines.  This arrangement required a complex  aystcm of switch movements to permit  a train coming from lhe east or .west  to be switched to any oi the station  track's. Tho handling of heavy traffic  offered many opportunities or mistakes  and delays in the passage of trains. The  telephone was not adopted until several  other plans had failed, and then this  scheme, which is still in operation, was  tried.  The. man who directs the trains is  stationed in an interlocking switch tower just beyond the crossover. From his  desk he can see all the tracks entering  tlie station, and also all the East and  West main lines. He is connected with  the  The train director is: able to clear  the station tracks for incoming trains  iu sufficient time to permit them to cuter without delay. He is connected with  ! the station master's office, so that the  : station master can bo notified of the ar-  i rival of. trains when they are still some"  i distance away and shift the station  j force to take care of them.  The station master can stop the movement of a train even after it has started, as the train director;- can set the  necessary stop signals before the train  I lias left" his control. ]'������������������y having the  i movement of all trains and switches in  j this, terminal under the control of the  | train director over 700 trains a day are  I handled.  j When the system of despatching  1 frains by telegraph goes out there will  be an olid to an institution that was  started in 1S50. 'The use. of the telephone for the purpose has been objected to on the ground that it is not  as accurate as the telegraph owing to the  similarity of sounds of different words,  letters and figures. The adoption of  the telephone at this lime is indication  that this trouble has b_on overcome.  One road that has been usingthe telephone for years is the Lake Eric, Alliance 6: Wheeling, which has nearly^ a  hundred miles of single track road. The  line, handles much coal traffic aud lis  schedule covers thirty trains each way  a dav. There are twenty-four telephone  stations along tho line at the various  stations where the agents or train  crews receive their orders.  On the division of the Peims-ylvania  line.? between Columbia, Va.. and Tar-  kersbur . Pa., a distance of thirty-eight  miles, the trains' have been operated by  telephone, supplemented by block signals since 3DOC. This division handles  ninetv-five trains of -I.SO0 cars daily, but  the arrangement differs from that on,the  Lake Eric. Alliance   _.,���������������������������Wheeling.  At each' terminal of the division mxd  at throe intermediate points there arc  small switchboards to which are connected three classes of telephone circuits.  One of these, called the directors wire,  is a. through circuit connected with each  of the five' switchboards. Alio!her circuit,  known as the long distance emcrgency  wire. connects the switchboard at each  end station with the board in the centre  of the division only. The. switchboard?  are also connected with lines running  from some, twentv-five station at various points along the track, these lines  being known as block wires.  The train director can get in touch  with the operators at the ..various switchboards and through them be connected  with the telephone stations on the block  wires in cither direction, and thus_ger.  iu direct communication'with-the crews.  Tn receiving orders by telephone conductors and engineers arc both required  to r'0 lo the telephone, oiic to receive the  order ami the other to write it down as  repeated by tlie first. After it has been  received the man avIio writes it from the  others repetition must repeat it back,  while the man who received it -must  underline each word as it is repeiu-ed. m  this way giving a check ou the order and . i  insuring a" correct understanding.  The S'ew York Central has had' a line  in operation between Albany and Fonda,  a dii.ti.ac_ of /forty miles, since October,  1907, and it has never been necessary to  resort to the telepraph service in this  time, even with the telephone circuit m  trouble. Special signalling devices are  used on this lino which permit the. dispatcher at Albanv io call one station  without calling tlie other, or while talking to one hc may call another without  inFoi-mptm _ ihe conversation.  In. case of accident or unu-ual delay  the svstein enables the superintendent',  of the division to talk with the man on  the o-round and issue immediate orders.  The'telephone'circuit is also found to  work well under weather conditions  which interfere with the operation oi the  telegraph circuit.  _������������������������������������������������������    ��������������������������������������������������������������� ���������������������������  =l_et-the-Old-Cat-Die.  i-ivrla" the recent election a  man  walking  i * . -  _.,_._*n   t._   rilf*    _ItICV.II1K.     1 It.mtic   litl"  Uv.mir,.< d������������������J*V..pf,,  "Jj-Sd what was tlio mut-  _^    ������������������T.n.V' inV   .-lull   la   tbaro."   ������������������ml  the j telephone   lines   extending   along  im....... nro. cu!e.

"The number of persons burned to  death in the United States each year by  .tho parlor match is.between, eight ajul  nine hundred, and the property loss  more than $2,000,000. The parlor'match  is the common ninety, which can be  ignited upon -any hard surface, as dis-  lingui-died from tho "safety" match  which cannot ordinarily be ignited except upon the box in which it is sold.  The. original "lttoifer" match, which  wh.n ipnitttd gives off the choking  fumes of sulphur, is still Used extcn-  .-ively, and i.s a safer match where handled carelessly than the larger-headed  parlor  type.  ���������������������������'Certain effort has been expended  upon the parlor match to lessen its fire  hazard. Its some varieties the stick is  chemically treated, so that a live coal  will not remain when the flame is extinguished, [n others, called bird's-eye  matches, only a small white point of  phosphorus on the head can be ignited  by friction. These improvements are  good as far as they go. but vast quantities of the most hazardous typo are  found everywhere in the United States.  Denmark and Switzerland prohibit their  u.e, and other continental countries impose restrictions. It is in America only,  where cheap wooden buildings abound,  and where, therefore, restrictions are  most vitally neacded, that the parlor  match is free to May and bum.  'Tt costs no more to make the safety  match than it does to make the deadly  variety, j|nd it is ordinarily sold as  cheaply. [Modern matchmaking machinery can turn out from four to seven  million of eitJwtr kind in a day. It rests  therefore, with the people .hemstdves,  cither to continue the present careless  snapping of match hw.ds upon bed  covei., curtain.., carpets, clothing and  other inflammable materials, for which  practice so frightful a price is paid in  property and life; or to protect the com  mon interests of humanity and the life  of iheir households, by thought fully ex-  ���������������������������ercising care in ordering their match  supply.

"' It  was four years ago that this  matter was first taken up in  the press. At that time the  fact of it being reserve land  put the question out of business. But the question is  still a live one. It is recognized by all that this island  could be made an ideal spot  for the purpose suggested.  The fact of it being reserve  land is.not an insurmountable obstacle if the matter  be taken,up with the Indians  themselves. There is no  doubt but that the Indians  would be as anxiou3 as any  of us to have a foot-bridge to  the island.

There wasn't any  blowing of horns and that  sort of thing, but the purpose for which Arbor Day is  intended was adhered to and  as a result a good step has  been made in the direction of  a beautified Enderby. On  the recreation grounds will  be seen the "result ��������������������������� of the  public observance by the  children and grown-ups combined, and here and - there  about town many "little  things" were done in recognition of the day to add to  the cleanliness and attractiveness of the streets and  home grounds.

A  knocker injures nobody so  badly as he does himself. A  [booster helps nobody more  than he does himself. A  community of boosters is a  valuable asset to any district.  Boost! boost!! boost!!! Boost  for the town you live in, or  if you do not feel like boosting, step aside and make  room for a more worthy citizen. And if it hurts you  to see the town advancing,  it will be more "to your advantage to get out than to  sit around and knock. "No  good sensible working bee  listens to the advice of a  bed-bug." On the subject  of business and community  advancement, which are you?  It is impossible to boost one  town to the disadvantage of  other towns in the district.  The go-ahead town helps the  district, and every town in  the district. It helps the  district by helping itself���������������������������by  attracting people and business to it.

Metcalfe Block, Cliff  St., Enderby.,   Town delivery.  Men never fight so hard for any:  thing as for a mistaken creed or custom. And no matter what they fight  for they couldn't,gain less should  they win.  Graham Romcyu Taylor, associate  editor of the Survey of Chicago and  secretary of the Chicago Playgrounds  association, is lecturing in all of the  principal cities of the western States  on the subject of municipal playgrounds for the .children. Mr. Taylor  is an authority on the' subject, and  his opinion should interest us even  in Endorby.  Speaking of his trip and of the  playground movement generally, Mr.  Taylor says:  "The people of the Pacific Coast  seem to take very kindly to the proposition of establishing playgrounds  for the children. In Los Angeles the  movement is well under way and  splendid preparations have been  made for this work. In San Francisco and even in little Santa Barbara splendid playgrounds have been  built and. other cities along tho coast  have taken up tho work. The advantage of buying this property  while it is cheap cannot be too fully  appreciated. In New York city today  they are spending as high as $700,-  000 an acre for land for playgrounds  purposes, yet they do not think the  outlay is too great. In Seattle four  years ago an eastern architect was  asked to recommend a plan for a  system of playgrounds throughout  the city, which he did. At that time  Seattle did not follow out the plan as  recommended and today the same  property is about to be purchased  by the city for hundreds,of thousands  of dollars more than for what it  could have been obtained at that  time.'*  - "Enderby' is a charming villiage with city airs.; ;  When Paddy Murphy shook the snow pfSandoh-  off his feet he came, here, and now owns one of  .finest brick hotels', in the country.

Dominion Departmeat o   Agriculture���������������������������Branch of the Dairy and  Cold Storage Commissioner.  A fcAv days ago .% buyer from the  States gave lhe high price of two thousand dollars to a. farmer near l.rockville  for one cow; this is believed to be the  highest price ever paid for a Canadian  cow. What made the animal so valuable? Granted that she was a model of  beauty and ;m exquisite type of her  breed, the fact remains-that her actual  performance largelv helped to effect the  . lie. She has a record of 121 pounds of  butler iu 30 day;. Tiie records, those  figures down ��������������������������� iii black and white, assisted in making the price. When farmers generally commence to keep records  of individual cows, wc may hope to develop not only many more such excellent  specimens, but a general improvement  in the production of the average herd.  Records alone can furnish the information necessary to enable intelligent selection of the promising cows, and the  rejection of those that are not profitable. Such selection, coupled with more  liberal feeding, will repay any farmer  abundantly. \As scores of farmers m  Canada can testify, it. has often resulted  in an additional fifteen and even twen-  tv-fivc of dollars extra for the.farmers  of Ontario and Quebec, even from the  present number of cows.' The Dairy  Commissioner. Ottawa, will be glad to  supply record, blanks' for weights of  milk, and to assist in organizing cow  testing associations.���������������������������C. ]'".

Maul what  From  Fairyland to Wilderness.  (By A Banker;.  Sailing along through the lovely  Straits of Messina recently, the ever  varying prospect was one of extreme  beauty and picturesque attraction. Now  cruising past a bold foam-girdled promontory jutting out into the blue sparkling waters o. the Mediterranean; now  past tiie onee dreaded whirlpool cf  Charvbdis, its locality indicated by a  massive upstanding rock on the "one  side of thi! narrow passage; now past  numerous villages on the verge of the  sea, its waves breaking at the foot of  the sloping, ever verdant gardens;  while on the acclivities farther back towards the snow-capped mountains, here  and there a handsome mansion or large  Avhite farmhouse glisters in the brilliant  rays of the southern sun; and now past  a small harbor in which arc moored  fishing beats and coasting craft, the  vessel at length arrives off the haud-  Boihe but fated town of Messina, its  prosperous neighbor Keggio lying upon  the opposite coast.  Ami it was a very fairyland, a_av-  ored spot where bounteous Nature had  bestowed Jier lavish gifts of beauty and  attractive adornment with unsparing  hand. Here, on the Taormina road,  stately and graceful palm trees, their  depending fronds waving in the breeze;  here, although not the season for flowers,-a clump of scarlet hibiscus or of  the gorgeous salvia spleudens, with  many another beauty of the floral  world; while new vistas of beauty, lovely bays and inlets, rocky defiles, and  flower adorned glens and dells ever  open out to the view.  But alas'! the fair beauty of it all is  inexorably fated to ruin and overthrow.  And at length the dread tocsin of doom  has sounded; the earth opens her mouth  and in the throes of a series of spasmodic throbs, those fair cities and villages, and. even, it may be surmised,  much of all that, natural beauty, are  overwhelmed iu desolation, and e'ngulf-  ed in ruin and overthrow; while the upheaval of the bed of the ocean impels  a mighty surging billow upon the fated towns, and the whole sea fronts are  inundated  in  the  swirling waters.  And were all those thousands of victims prepared to meet their God? Had  some of them put off to a more convenient time the preparation, for 'eternity?  Ah, when that massive masonry, which  would in a moment crush the life out  of them, was hurtling prone upon them,  perhaps to. in their sleep, how could  they repent of their misdeeds and accept . the proffer of salvation through"  the Redeemer's atonement?

We may be poorly nouri-..e<I  even though we eat a great deal, either because it is not the right kind  or it is improperly cooked.  It is said that tv. .-thirds of the sickness is caused by improper diet, and  doctors agree that the feeding of the  sick is of as much importance ab tho  medicine.  __ When .the. patient is sick in bed only j  a little nourishment is needed, which" is  usually given in 'the form of liquids.  The most nourishing liquid is milk.  Some people do not like milk and cannot digest it. One must use infinite  resource when sick people do not like  tilings. You cau make tho milk into  junket. Tho rennet supplies the digestive fluid, and flavoring the milk makes  it. more agreeable and digestible. Jfei'f  is a recipe for one person:  One-half cup of milk, one-half teas-  poouful liquid rennet, one teaspoonful  (level) o sugar, three drops of vanilla.  Hoat the milk until hike warm, add the  sugar and stir until it is dissolved; add  the vanilla and rennet and pour in the  dish you are going to serve it iu. Leave  it in a warm place till it is firm, and  then set it in a cool place. Always use  it lhe day it is made. It cau be served  with cinnamon and nutmeg and cream.  If the patient needs laxatives, do not  give spices, as they act in the opposite  way. If the stomach is dclicato do not  give cream, as it will be hard to digest.  One of the grievances of an invalid is  the i .outouous diet, which is not at all  necessary. There are several kinds of  broth, and they ilo not all taste alike.  Variety ca.i Ik1, made by the seasoning,  but there is not enough nourishment in  them to sustain life for a long period;  but they .are stimulating aud very valuable in tho diet. All broths should  have this point in common���������������������������they should  be something more than mere water.  Thoy should not be greasy, because  greasy broth does not agree with a delicate stomach. 'They should be served  hot, but the dish tliat it is put in  should   be hot, and a hot corcr an the  dish, and then all haste to get it to the  patient.  CHICKEN BROTH.     .  Chicken broth usually has the preference. Aa old fowl contains more  juice than a young one. One medium-  sized lion should'make a quart of-good  ^bi'Oth. Singe and was'.i the fowl. I know  nice, intelligent people who will put  thec hicken in a pan of water, soak out  all the juice that will come out, then  .throw._it._away._Thc. ;iuice_J_s__what_you  want in tho  broth.  Cut the fowl in rather small pieces;  chop the bones, a. they contain gelatin.  Scald the feet and legs and remove the  skin and put them in. There is gelatin  in them also. Cover with cold water  and/let soak one hour. Then boil slowly a half-day. The chicken should be  cooked tiil it falls from the bones.  Strain through' a fine strainer or a  coarse olu .kc-cloth. I'i.-vu the chicken  down tilTyoif"are sure you" have "all ihe  juice. If you have more than a quart,  boil  it down.  1 Jut it in a cool place. The fat will  rise to the top, and the broth will become thick like iellv. _'he fat cau eas-  Uy be skimmed off.  Now this broth can be kept several  days, and each time it is served season  it differently. I'ov plain broth put. salt  in, but no pepper. Sick people should  not have popper.  Always taste it first to sec if it is all  right.  A toaspoou of rice boiled till it is very'  soft, may be added. If the patieut likes  onion flavor, use a very little ouion  juice, which may be obtained by pressing the onion on a grater with a rotary motion.  This broth may be alternated with  beef broth mutton broth or veal broth.  Beef broth lias more taste aud tlie patient gets tired of it more quickly.  BEEF BROTH.  One pound of lean beef makes 1 pint  of broth. Have it chopped very fine,  soak it 1 hour in 1 pint of cold water.  This broth should never be boiled, as  it coagulates the albumin, which will  then be strained out, leaving the broth  with no more nourishment thau a cup  of hot salted water.  Tut the pan of beef and wat-er iu another pan of water over the fire. Stir  constantly till the broth becomes dark  red or chocolate color. Strain through a  coarse strainer, pressing the beef down  with a spoon to get all the juice out.  Whon the broth is reheated, put it in  a pan of water, being careful not to  toil it, You can tell wkca it is cooked  too much, as it' becomes clear.   Season,  it with  salt.  ' Mutton and veal broths are made the',  same as chicken.- Remove the" fat;from  the mutton, as it giv_a an unpleasant-  taste to the broth. They ��������������������������� should boil-  slowly a long time, be strained,, allowed-  to stand 'till cold,- and the fat skimmed  off. '   . . ���������������������������:������������������������������������������������������-���������������������������.  Barley  is  nice to  serve  in     mutton  broth, also, rice.

For clam or oyster broth take G  large clams or oysters in the shell,  scrub them very clean. Tut then in a '  saucepan with 1 cup of cold water. Let  them boil till the shells open. Strain  through a piece of muslin, season with  Palt, and if the patient i- not \ .ry sick,-  ?. little buttey.  Be very carerul about serving things  to sick people. Do not u.k thorn what  they want to eat. Jf they have a strong  desire for anything they will let you  know. Serve a small quantity at a time.  'The sight of a quantity of food will often turn the patient away from the idea  of eating, where a little would tempt  him.  Have everything spotless and dainty,  do not forget anythiug.

THE ENDERBY PRESS AND WALKER'S WEEKLY  May 6, 1909  ington  Heights  On   the  Market  LATE LOCAL NEWS  It has been proven that the  bench lands around Enderby can  produce * the... 'highest quality of  fruit.  We have decided to divide up  into small blocks that portion of  Lot 159, Ijang northwest of Mr.  Waby's market garden.  This will give as eight blocks  of 10 acres each above the Sal-  Celebration Committee meeting tomorrow night, in the City  office.  F. H. Barnes is building a  warehouse for Walter Robinson  in the rear of the Robinson block.  The loss of house and shedsi  of Robt. McEwen has been reported since the fire report was  printed.  The Armstrong band gave  a concert at the Hullcar Hall last  night, a number of Enderbyites  attending.  The Ahier Brothers, of Mara,  received the sad intelligence by  mon Arm road and two blocks  below, all having choice and con- j cable the past' week of the death  venient  building  sites   on the of their aged mother in the Home  road, and only 15 minutes' walk  from Enderby station, postoffice,  school and stores.  Make your selection now, and  buy before the price goes up.  ���������������������������   For further particulars see me,  or address���������������������������  Chas. E.

Our Motto:  "Do Some Boosting"  Do not be a knocker  As through life you pass;  If you're looking out for faults,  Get a looking-glass.  Throw away your hammer,  And your friends surprise;  Do a little boosting if you're  Needing exercise."  C. R. IMERSON,  Dist. Deputy Head Consul, Mod-  ^.ern^WoodmeruoLAmeEica   Land.  A later report from Mara,  states that Chas. W. Little carried  $500 on his buildings destroyed  by the fire, and Geo. Little carried $900.  R. Blackburn has established  a regular weekly trip to Mara  and way-points with his meat  wagon, and reports a splendid  volume of business.  There was quite an exodus of  Enderbyites for the coast last  Thursday: Ira C. Jones and family, Miss Hale, Mr. Geo. Hale,  and Mr. and Mrs. W. Boyer.  E. T. Smith this week sold to  Dan Senkler, of Salmon Arm, the  fine team of draught mares he  brought with him from the  Northwest. The price paid was  $1,000.  The Ladies Aid of the Presbyterian church will be held at the  home of Mrs. Woods on Wednesday, May 12th, at 2 o'clock.  Mission tea will be served from  4:30 to 6.  The walls of the Bell block will  soon be in position for the carpenters. The bricks used in these  walls are a sample of the excellent quality of the product of the  Enderby Erick & Tile Co.  The Baptist church is now one  of the most pleasing appearing  buildings in town. It was painted the past week. The property  is to be fenced and planted with  lawn, flowers and shrubbery.  H. H. Worthington, as City  Assessor, suggested before the  Court of Revision last Friday  evening that all church property  in the city should be taxed. He  said the amount of property in  End.er__y^e_xemp_t__fromJ:.axa.tion_  as church property, was out of  all reason when the size of the  town was considered, and he believed the church people themselves should be and were the  readiest to pay taxes the same  as others had to.  Mr. and Mrs. G.-C. Salt left on  Saturday for a six-months' visit  to the old home at Shrewsbury,  Eng. This is the first trip they  have made to the Home Land in  15 years. They will return to  Enderby in October.  H. W. Harvey, as liquidator of  the Rothsay Lumber Co., went  to Mara Wednesday to see what  was left of the mill property. He  found that the company had lost,  in addition to the, mill, about  $2,000 worth of saw logs.  For neatness of workmanship  combined with strength, -the  building of the arch over Mill  street by F. H. Barnes, for the  Board of Trade sign, will compare favorably with the best of  them.  As an indication of the awful  heat carried by the wind ahead  of Monday's fire, C. S. Handcock tells of the dead limbs at  the top of a tree standing on his  farm breaking but in a blaze with  the approaching fire half a mile  away.  H. E. Waby purchased from  Wm. Tomkinson, this week, the  valuable Tomkinson Meadow  farm, on the Enderby-Salmon  Arm wagon road in the Mt. Ida  district. It is Mr. Waby's intention to make a model poultry  and seed potato farm out of his  place.  Enderby's watering place was  put in commission this week by  the Columbia Flouring Mills Co.,  on Mill street, near the river  bank. . The water is running  fresh and clear night and day and  the drainage is perfect. Let your  horses drink to the health of Manager Moffet���������������������������and have one your  self.
