He  has leased the Armstrong creamery  and is advertising to give the farmers of  the Spallumcheen a square deal in the  cream and butter business. This is hot a  puff for Alfred Slater. In this department  m.tjdon/t write puffs for anybody.. If you  were to pay us $5^a^line^you^couldn't-. uy-  a puff in Walker's, Weekly. If you can  show the goods���������������������������produce results���������������������������you do  not need to be puffed, and do not care a  tinker's dash whether you ever get a puff  or not���������������������������and when you evolve to this, you  are sure to be picked out and have the  puffs thrust upon you.  Alfred Slater is a young man. He \sall  man, though. He isn't of the jelly-fish  class���������������������������is not a spineless cactus. He doesn't  run around the olock to hear what others  think before he has a think of his own.  He respects the 'opinion of others, but he  also respects his own. When he knows his  business he knows he knows it. You have  only to meet the man to respect him, and  to have confidence in his ability���������������������������or you  don't���������������������������accord  ing to your  own state of  develo p ment.  The business  men of Armstrong see in  Alfred Slater  the right man  for the place,  and are supporting him to  a man. It is  a matter of  business to  trict Have' been victimized by either dishonest or inexperienced men, and now. that  they have a man to handle their .creamery,  ���������������������������-who- isljo tl)/hcn sst;andJ experienced, they  are giving him their unqualified support.  The business men and dairymen throughout the" Valley should do -likewise. The  Okanagan Creamery should supply every  town in the Valley with butter. It is to  the credit of the Valley to have it operating successfully:  ���������������������������   /-    .  The spirit animating -Mr. Slater may be  judged from his public statement. He  says:' "Build up our Valley by helping  along men who are giving you a square  deal, and. remember that success in anything depends^on men standing together."  ONDAY, May 3d, will be a civic holiday, to be finown as Arbor Day.  ^It^will-be^given=over���������������������������to-the-work-bf  beautifying our homes and the town generally. How much this will mean to Enderby will depend entirely upon the spirit  in which the day is observed. It may mean  much or little. If the day is observed in  the spirit in which the holiday has been set  apart, we shall in a very few years have a  beautiful Enderby. If, on the other hand,  it is indifferently observed by the many, the  wor,k will devolve upon the few, and the  time required will be longer. One tree  set out by every school child, how many  would it mean? How broad may be the influence! for trees are like thoughts: once  planted they take root and spread their  branches far beyond the ken of the planter,  and to every eye they tell a different story.

In that sad fa cod group, made famil-  inr  liy the painter'., and the engraver's  art, were ;i score or more of persons���������������������������  members  of  the. dying president's  por-  .-onal and official families, army officers  iind  medical  men.    The sole  survivors  now, after tho lapse of more than forty  years, are. .Robert T. .Lincoln, son of the  war president, and since then himself a  distinguished Secretary of War in ;i later Cabinet,   .ml Dr. Charles A. Leale, a  physician of this city, living at UO-i .Madison avenue.   The late John ]i::y was a  member of that group, too. [fc was then  the  private secretary of the president.  Later lie became one of his biographers,  and later still the gifted Cabinet Premier  whose  name has  been affixed  to  some  of   the   most  important   treaties  iind   State  documents in  his  country's  history.   The death of dolin liny reduced the number of survivors to the two  named.  On that fateful night in Ford's Theatre, when comedy ceased its mimicry on  tlie   stage  while  tragedy   wrought  out  its treacherous crime in the flag draped  presidential box, it was the hand of Dr.  J.eale  that first brought to  the aid of  the stricken president the touch of surgery.    Jt wa.s due largely to Dr. Leale . j  prompt "attention that .Abraham Lincoln  did   not   expire   immediately   and   that  ihe prolongation of the'president,  life  for a period of Ttine hours permitted him  to die. surrounded by family and friends  and  enabled   the  national  Government  to adjust itself somewhat to the situation caused by tho tragedy.  Dr. Leale. when he made his first examination, said tu those others who  had crowded in to hoar tidings of the  chieftain whom they loved: '-Thc hurt is  ' mortal. ]Ie cannot recover." The grim  diagnosis, destined to be verified before,  the next noontide, was telegraphed and  i.ablcu wherever existing facilities would  permit. There was no Atlantic cable in  those days. ,,  Dr. Lea'le directed the removal of the  wounded president, when he was carried  across the street and laid upon n bed on  the second floor of a stranger's house.  The young surgeon stood to Ids post  throughout the nine hours of s ...pense  I������������������y the deathbed and when the filial  hour had come held gently in his grasp  the limp right hand of the. dyinf" president, his forefinger pressed to the flick-  ������������������������������������������������������rin. pulse until at last it ceased to  beat.  On meeting Dr. Leale for the first  time a stranger's first sensation is one  of surprise at his apparent, youthfulness,  When a Her.*!d reporter expressed that  feeling of surprise after having visited  Dr. Leale at his home."the doctor laughed. "Yes," he said, "most persons do \  not know me personally, but who have  only heard ihat ii was f. who held the  hand of the dying Lincoln, expect when  they first meet me to sec a sort of  .Methuselah.'''  The fact is that Dr. Leale ;- only fl(i  years old and looks younger. When he  ���������������������������at,j,n_l'_ord's Theatre watching the per  lap.    T  lorniani _  of "Our Amoric^nT^CtHV. ir   oir  thc night of April  14, ISUo, and  heard  lhe crack of John Wilkes Booth's pistol,  the doctor was an athletic young man  of -2.'f.    But young as  he was, ho had  been detailed in charge of the. commissioned officers of the Army Hospital in  Washington, D. C. a post which he had j  lilli'd   until   the  end  of  the  war, after i  having   served   his   term   a*  a   medical I  cadet  and  earned  his commission as a ;  ���������������������������  -.urgeon in the   .niled -Stale? army.  On Urn night of the a-sas. initio _, Dr.  J.eale had gone to  tin* thoafo less for  the purpo-e of ;-ooing flu- play than in  the  hope of obtaining a  eh .e  view  of  Pro .dent   Lincoln.

' the   President's   head   was  gently lifr...l  in -Mich a way as to en use no shock and  wa- rested on her lap. There it remained  until   tender  hands  curried  the  patient  across Tenth street to the house opposite  the iheatro.   which  by   the  merest  chance was destined to become the setting for the final scot . in a great career.  ".My first thought," said Dr. Leale, recalling the. mi.ino.io__ of that night, "was  'to  get   the   President  to   some  placeof  .-5.-ifi.-ty.    Ali of us thought there was a-  plot to blow up the theatre, and we felt  that the mine might b- fired :a tiny moment.   One ut the first things 1 said after having made _i superficial examination was, "Iiis wound.is mortal; ho cannot recover."   Two oilier physicians, Dr.  Taft and Dr. 11. K. A. King," hud come to  my   assistance,   and  flic  President   was  carried across the street.   Several army  officers and soldiers with drawn swords  went in advance of us and cleared the  way.

"On our way over I was twice obli <reil  to relieve the pressure on the pa lion.,  brain by again removing the clot. Mv.  Lincoln was shot at half-past ten o'clock  and jived unf.il tweiitv minutes past  seven o'clock the next "in'orniii" Before  hi-: d^illi the Cabinet ifficors'had tiina  .to assemble, and he died with his family  I al his bedside.   As his spirit passed awav  I wa = holding his right hand.'  j As Dr. Leale said this he took the hand  I of (he writer in a firm but gentle grasp  and illustrated how he had held li is index  ! finger on the pulse of tho radial artery  'until jt'h.Kl coa.-,ed to beat.  Much that h-id occurred dii rin. those  nine hours while, tho President's fife was  slowly  ebbing Dr.   Leale   holds   of   too  sacred memory (o repeat even now for  publication.    .Much  that he himself did  during those crucial hours he. is too mod-  e-U ti^ repeat lost ho be thought by some  who on not know him to be indulging in  personal  exploitation.     11   was" oiilv* at  the unreal request of his colleagues of  the .Military Order of the Loyal'Legion  that he. finally consented to read a paper  at a recent memorial dinner of that organization ... Dolmonico's. embodying at  some length his recollection of ihc&na-  tion's tragedy.  Others have told, however, of the presence of mind, skill and efficiency with  which Dr. Leale stood to his post from  the first moment fo 'the hist throughout  the ordeal.    Amid the confusion of the  emptying theatre and  the ever present '  dread of some further calamity he coolly  examined   his   illustrious    patient    and  made his prognosis; he arranged for the  removal to a private house without un-  iic_o<= .iry delay; ho despatched the messengers that so.-m  broil'..]!, hun-yino- to  the   deathbed   (hc  son.

In March, 188(_ the ouU'-'-ak of Asiatic  cholera took him abroad to make a special study of that scourge. From lSUG  to 1S77 Dr. Leale was physician in  charge of the children's class at the  Northwestern Dispensary of New York  City, and for two years was specialist  in heart and lung diseases at the Central   Dispensary,  also of New York.  In 1S!)1 he was made president of St.  John's Guild, and in 1892 was re-elected  for a second term.

Tlie  less  obstruction   and    hindrance  there may be to the trade botwoea any  two countries the more will it be mutually beneficial, but the policy iias become  quite general in recent times, outside of  Great Britain,  of obstructing  trade in  general by high duties and then lessening the obstruction with particular countries by lowering the duties for them in  return    for corresponding   concessions.  A dam is built across the stream of imports at all ports and then openings arc  made   below   its  crest    for     restricted  sluices   from   certain   countries     which  make corresponding holes in their tariff  dams.   This is the policy of France, and  it has given the United States the same  opportunity as other countries for having  the.   dashboard  of  maximum   rates  removed from its channel for a proper  consideration.

It was  new year's day,  to be sure, but not a  single religious Indian had a thought of  turning over a  new  leaf-���������������������������instead  they  preferred t,o "walk the chalk line," which  is their way of expressing the same sentiment.

Tho. revelation . is prefaced .by an  account of the sins of Handsome Lake  before he became a prophet and tells of  his sickness brought on h. over-indulg-  enge in fire-water and of a fearful and  wonderful vision which fla**h..L upon  him. For three day- the life of the  prophet was . isp-ended and his sunt  transported to the ethereal realms commonly known ns the Tlappy Hunting  Orounds. where the Croat Spirit revealed His laws.

Tho t..ro>?-ilay series of protracted  meetings is truly a time of revival with  the Indians, rind 'th������������������ story of the prophet's .suffering, the account of the marvellous revelation and the recital of the  ethical laws ordained for Indians bring  tears and heartfelt emotion that prompts  it desire to live better and do right always.

"Though far inferior in numbers and  in seaio of culture those Iroquois have  succeeded in bringing about influences  which have resulted in tho preservation  of their native territories in the same  general region as when first discovered,'' said Mv.

Not many years ago. doctors thought  rheumatism was only a local pain caused by exposure to cold and wet. Now  they know that rheuniati. 11 is caused  by the blood becoming tainted with  uric acid. This acid contracts the muscles, stiffens the joints, and irritates  the nerves. Then the cold and wet  make the joints and muscles groan with  aching rheumatism. You blame the  weather, but the real cause is acid in  the blood. Ii not promptly treated the  stiffness spreads and the pain grows  worse each year until you are a helpless  cripple, tortured day and night. If the  disease touches the heart it means sudden death. You can't cure rheumatism  with liniments, plasters or hot cloths.  You must go to the root of the trouble  in the blood. The one sure, scientific  way to cure rheuinatis.ni is Dr. Williams'  1'iiik Pills, because they actually make  new blood. They sweep out the poisonous acid, loosen the joints and muscles  -nud-^bring^oase^aiul=ireedom^whero-=bc--=  fore had been pan; and misery.  31rs. Fred Sabcau, Canada Creek. X.

Commerce is not a warfare, but a  peaceful occupation, dependent upon  friendly relations. Fighting for trade  wilh duties on what v.'o buy from others  is an absurdity. We cannot get into  (he markets of others on favorable  terms by keeping them out of ours. We  cannot promote our selling to others by  refusing to buy from'them or hindering  them in selling to us.

Her right eyebrow has a fulnes9 at the bend which  looks Tike, a dark, round spot as large  as a marble- She is as pale     as death.

WHEN Mr. J. C. English  VV   was appointed chief of  our fire department,  if such  a title is permissible for so  small a proposition, he went  to the Council with a proposal that he considered was  vitally important if the matter of fire protection, were to  receive any consideration at  all at the "hands of the city.  He felt that if the little fire-  fighting apparatus the city  owns were to be preserved  and kept in .constant readiness for an emergency, the  proper    drying    apparatus  should be  erected  for the  handling of the hose, and the  fire hall should be electric-  lighted so as to enable the  men to see what they were  doing should they be called  upon to answer an alarm at  night.   He  also  suggested  that accommodation be provided for a man to sleep at  the fire hall,  and to have a  general supervision of  the  fire. apparatus.     Mr. . English argued that if something  were not clone along this line  it were unreasonable to expect to hold  together any  kind of a fire brigade, for  without   some   , systematic  handling of the men and apparatus very little could be  expected in' the direction of  proficiency,   and  when  the  apparatus  were   needed  it  would be found that nobody  knew, where anything was,  and valuable time would be  lost looking  for  the thing  that should be on the spot.  Mr. English's proposition  meant the spending oi a hundred dollars or so, and the  Council turned it down. The  thousand-dollar fighting apparatus is u. piled into a $25  shed; the city has no hose-  reel team and no fire-fighting  organization whatever.     If  it was how unprepared we  are to fight fires. When the  men ran to the hose-reel shed  they found everything helter-  skelter. There was a place  for everything and everything in its place���������������������������in a heap  on the floor. When they got  to the fire they found tney  had only one nozzle and hose  enough to make one connection. Fortunately the men  who handled the reel had  had previous experience in  fire fighting and got it under  control before it was well  started. To their cleverness  and cool-headed work the  city owes all it would have  lost by the destruction of the  Bell block.  It has been said that society is very kind in a small  community in that it will  forgive everything but truth.  Truth has been suppressed  and sicle-stepped^ so long in  some communities and by  some people, that they become very doggedly indifferent to its pleadings. But in  matters of this nature, where  the protection of the city is  at issue, does not our common sense tell us that it is  false economy to endeavor to  save money # by neglecting  our fire-fighting apparatus?  It is part of the program in  the erection of the City Hall  and Court House to make a  proper place for the hose-reel  and apparatus, but this will  not do awa^ with the need  of an organized fire brigade.  Kind Providence and willing  hands will not always be "on  the spot" as was the case last  week.  aseball  Goods  O    V  The 1909 line shows Class,  Style, and Snappy, up-to-  date features.

THE ENDERBY PRESS AND WALKER'S WEEKLY  BIG THINGS FOR CANADA  A despatch in the Toronto Globe  of April 1st says: "Wealth is pouring over the border into Canada from  the United States "at the present at  the rate of nearly a million per week,  according to the estimates of those  who are in touch with the immigration movement. The influx is exceptionally large. Trains in two sections are the rule on the Soo line'  running into Moose.Taw, and all the  trains are carrying largo numbers of  Americans from the States of the  central west.  "Special settlers' trains, with large  numbers of cars loaded with effects,  are also being operated. The estimate of the local office is to the  effect 'that 70,000 Americans will  come in this season, .taking up between 20,000 and 25,000 homesteads, and the number may possibly  reach a hundred thousand. ��������������������������� At several points in Saskatchewan and Alberta the rush has been so great that  the. government has arranged to supply large furnished tents. These can  be used not only by travellers from  the United States, but also by those  from Eastern Canada and Europe."  In the Globe of April 3rd another  significant item appears, relating to  finances. It says: "The ordinary  man speaks of a 'return to normal  conditions,' and means by that conditions as they existed at the height  of the business expansion in  1906.

Vicar  Given this meaning, 'normal conditions' represent a great deal, for  it stands for the period of'greatest  growth.Jn: the country's history.  There are not wanting indications  that we shall reach that position  again. The fall in the minimum discount rate of the Bank of England  to 2% per cent, this week signalizes  a period of abnormally easy money  throughout the world. This is of "immediate consequence to our own  country, for it means that the British  markets will continue to be available  to our borrowers, and old country  and European funds will continue to  press for investment here."  If these things be true, and nobody  acquainted with prevailing conditions will question them, then common sense suggests that every man  should do his part to make sure of  his own share of the prosperity.  And what is true of the individual  in this respect, is true also of the  community.   JJUU-.  We sell the  Water-motor washing machine  This is the 20th Century way to wash  An Ideal Land.

P  ETER BURNET  Dominion & Provincial  Land Surveyor  Enderby, B. C.  A correspondent in the Standard  of Empire writes: "As an army  officer c. ecently retired and anxious  to find some place in which my  limited income and personal inclinations could be made to suit each  other, I went last summer to British  Columbia, having heard glowing accounts of the splendid climate, and  scenery, unlimited sport,, and general attractions to be found there,  and perhaps.my impressions may be  useful to any others of like circumstances and inclinations.  "I may say at once that my expectations were more than realized,  and I strongly advise all who are in  search of a happy settling ground,  where they can live cheaply���������������������������a free,  unconventional,, outdoor life, with  plenty of sport and amusements of  all. kinds and a sufficiency of congenial society:���������������������������to go there and look  for themselves.  , "A small capital���������������������������say ������������������600���������������������������and  an .income of ������������������200.or ������������������300 a year  will provide more in the way of comfort and pleasure than , double ;or  treble that sum w'ou.cl do in, England, and there are also many fairly  easy methods of materially increasing one's income, which would certainly appeal to a large proportion  of the class of people I am thinking  of. Fruit-growing, poultry and dairy  farming���������������������������and in some places general  farming���������������������������are all profitable, and not  too laborious industries, requiring no  great capital, or even very, much previous experience; in fact, for fruitgrowing���������������������������which is, perhaps , the  most profitable and popular of all���������������������������I  have frequently been told that previous experience in England,or elsewhere is actually undesirable, as  Canadian   methods   are   distinctive  -and=besUsuited-to_the_country_._   "The climate is such that almost  any one can find what he requires,  from the chronic invalid to the hardy  sportsman and traveller���������������������������in fact,  any climate that can be found in. the  temperate zones of Europe can be  found equally in British Columbia.  The summers are deliciously warm  and bright, and the winters usually  fine and clear," with only occasional  cold snaps to provide winter amusements. To the sportsman it is a  veritable paradise���������������������������and especially  perhaps to a fisherman, though the  shooting is very varied and plentiful  ���������������������������while any one fond of yachting,  rowing, or bathing can find endless  opportunities of enjoying himself.  "British Columbia is essentially a  country for people of limited means  and expensive tastes, for many of the  amusements confined in. England to  rich men are out there available to  the humblest. It is also a country  to which an intending settler should  take his women-folk, for the double  reason that while they will add  largely to his comfort and happiness  (as, of course, they do everywhere),  they will also find the free,- unconventional life there a very pleasant  change from the monotony of English country routine. Ladies���������������������������and  especially perhaps unmarried onesr���������������������������  have splendid times out there, and  those I met were only too anxious to  remain there as long as they could."  ���������������������������       .       . ��������������������������� -(  If in life you find you have to  strike, strike hard.

C  A Dishonest Practice  The Armstrong Advertiser is  to be commended for the' position it has taken in denouncing  the practice of some eastern real  estate men, working, either innocently or "with malice afore  thought," in conjunction with  dishonest property owners in the  Okanagan, to rob eastern men  who are seeking homes in this  favored District. It tells of a  case where some unsophisticated  Manitoban was induced to trade  a $12,000 farm for an uncleared  place near Armstrong, said to be  worth from $1,200 to $3,000. Of  course, the man who will buy a  piece of property without seeing  it does not deserve a great deal  of^sympathy, nevertheless, there  should' be' a limit. Real estate  men and property owners who  will make false representation in  connection with property they  are selling, should be held accountable. Obtaining money by  false pretenses is as bad in business as in handling gold bricks.  Play the game alone.    No matter  what it is, don't lean upon anyone.

Local   News   and   Comment  Mr. H. W. Harvey opened a  real estate office in the barbershop block this week, where he  is showing the survey maps of  the new town of Grindrod.  Mr. and Mrs. A. L. Fortune returned from a visit to the coast  on Tuesday morning. Mr. Fortune says he did not see any  smallpox in Vancouver, but  everybody had real estate badly.  Saturday night entertainments  arc like Christmas eve entertainments���������������������������good for tho promoters,  but hard on our business people,  who have to stand around and  knock their heels while seeing  their light bills run up.  "Mrs. Jarley's Waxworks/' in  K. P. hall Monday evening was  greeted by a  full  house.    The  . ladies and friends of the St.  George church had charge of the  affair and they deserve great  credit for the able manner in  which it was conducted.    There  .   was a pleasant evening for all.  Prince Rupert has a daily newspaper. It is small, but well-  edited, and more of a ?ie-.(_,paper  that some of. the real estate organs published at Vancouver.  The editor or publisher has not  made his identity known, but  there is so much of the Houston-  ian ring about it that one scarcely has to ask by whom it is published.  Mr. and Mrs. H. H. Worthington were the recipients of many  words and messages of heart-felt  sympathy this week, on the death  of their infant son, which occurred early. Friday morning,  as the result of valvular trouble  of the heart and lungs from birth.  Interment took place Saturday  afternoon from the Presbyterian  church.  There was standing room only  in K. P. Hall last Saturday evening to hear the Jubilee Singers.  The colored singers captivated  all by the melody and sweetness  of their, singing, and the good  spirit in which they answered the  many encores. The sextette  from Lucia was the ringer of the  evening, though to signalize any  one number is hardly fair, for all  were good.  Public feeling in Enderby is  strongly in favor of keeping the  streets clear of cattle, horses, etc.  The Council therefore give notice  that, in compliance with the desire of the great majority of the  people, the Pound By-law will be  strictly enforced, during the coming season. The city has no  poundkeeper at present, but arrangements are being made for  the filling of that office, and the  public will be notified at at early  date of the ,name of the keeper  and location of the pound.  -���������������������������E.JH.JBarnesJ s __������������������.ui Id i ng_a.sy s=,  tern of  poultry houses on  the^  _B_BL  "*._  Hazelmere farm that will surpass anything of the kind in the  Okanagan.

The alarm of fire last Thursday  morning was for a small blaze in  the woodbox in the office of W.  E. Banton, Bell block. By the  time the hose-reel was got upon  the spot and a stream of water  turned on, the fire had connected  with the woodwork about the  door and was burning between  the plastered walls. The men on  the hose did splendid work at  short range, and in a few min  utes it was all over. The damage was light, probably the most  serious to the Enderby Trading  Co., from water.  W.
