Array Enderby, B. C, May 27, 1909  AND      WALKER'S      WEEKLY  Vol. 2; No. 13; Whole No. 65  >c<  >x  >o<:  >"0^_  ^_>w_:  ENDERBY SUSTAINS HER REPUTATION IN THE ENTERTAINMENT; OF HER GUESTS;  X  Enderby should take a new  grip on the opportunities she has  been toying with.. She is capable  of bigger and better things.  The attitude of the immense  crowd of visitors that gathered  here on Victoria Day, showed  this. They saw in the environs  of Enderby much more, me thinks,  than we to whom they have become so familiar. And the  splendid handling of the sports  and crowds by. the grounds and  sports committees elicited many  kind words from our visitors.  There was just one word heard  now and then from the crowd  outside the railing, by way of  complaint, arid that was more a  word of enquiry than of complaining. The crowd outside of  the railing wanted to know7what  the railing, was built; fo^: if th'e  spectators3were to be allowed as  much on one >ide as the other.'  Eighteen years ago, when Enderby held her first Victoria Day  celebration, it was a small burg.  Then, it was a sort of Half-way  station���������������������������a resting place���������������������������for race  horses going the Okanagan circuit, and many of.the fastest  trotters and runners from Montana and the Northwest were  seen on the Enderby track. It  was a straight-away course, running from the birch grove���������������������������now  ^theJVVright_meadQ.ws___tQ_a:p.oint_  on the F. H. Barnes place, about  where George street enters. It  was known as the Lambly track,  and Mr. Kenney and Mr. Wright  tell us it ran directly over the  ground now occupied by the  Walker Press.  Horsemen made this their rendezvous while waiting for the  races at the various points on the  circuit, and many races for big  wagers were pulled off here.  Slowly Enderby has grown  from the little settlement it then  was, with its single hotel���������������������������now  the railway station���������������������������to the promising town of the  present day.  Its advance has been slow if  we compare it with the modern  towns and cities that grow up in  a year or two, with their, graded  and payed streets, cement sidewalks and boulevards, but Enderby is Enderby, and always  has been. ,i. And there never has  been any lack of interest in her  celebrations.  Neighboring towns always  have been liberal in their patronage of our 24th of May sports,  and in turn, Enderby has filled  the cars to the neighboring towns.  This year was no exception..  The Revelstoke special brought a  large crowd from the Divisional  City and way points. Vernon  and Armstrong sent a representative crowd,  Armstrong alone  the day's., celebration was the  brutality displayed by the few  sluggers on .each of, .the lacrosse  teams.' One Armstrong man got  his medicine and was carried off  the field. Two others were laid  out on the field and the game delayed thereby.; In passing, it  might be'[ well to suggest that  the .next time lacrosse on the  Enderby grounds is reduced-to a  slugging match the grounds committee should promptly stop the  game without any ceremony.  When, players.are, put on the  fence.a minute, two minutes,  three minutes, it means a rest  for them, that is. all. Put the  sluggers on the fence for the  Boys under 14,.

Salmon Arm sent  a loyal, rollicing crowd with their  football team, and the district  round about Enderby turned out  to a man.   The music furnished by the  Armstrong and Enderby bands  was very highly praised; the reception committee, and the various sports committees, handled  their end of the program well.  There were some unnecessary  delays, but on the whole the  games were called promptly and  played on schedule time.  quarter, and they will play, lacrosse when" they get back on the  field.    At 10:30 a.' m. the children's  races were called. The boys and  girls were fresh and full of life,  and made these races of real interest to all who saw them.   -  In the boys under 10, Leslie  Mowat won first, Geo. Jones 2nd,  Fred Foulds 3rd.

Following the footraces came  the hose-reel contest. ' Three  teams were entered. The Lumber company's team made the  first run, but failed to make the  nozzle connection. The Enderby  team made a splendid run, and,  considering the heavy cart, made  good time, getting water in  28 1-5. Armstrong's team carried off second money in 32 1-5.  Starter, Constable Simmons;  timekeeper, W. Allan Dobson.  Promptly at 1:30 the baseball  game was called; F. C. Wolfenden behind the pitcher's box. It  was an interesting game.   Sid  Holtby and the inimitable McDonald furnished "Enderby's battery and Scott and McDavie did .  the work for Revelstoke.   Mc.  Donald cut out the whirlwind de-  livery that distinguished him last;1  year,   and pitched   good   ball/. ,  Sid Holtby, stopped everything >.  coming his way and made a star  throw to second to stop Laing's  steal.    Scott pitched  his usual.  game, and McDavie held every- ,  thing the bat missed.  Ih the field and at the bat, the  brilliant playing for Enderby was .  done by Davis.    He got under  anything sent to left field and ���������������������������[  at the bat, made safe every time  he came up.

Neither team scored a goal in the  regular time and a half hour  was devoted to it at the close of  the lacrosse game, when Enderby  scored twice.

Archie Campbell, a well known city
officer in Auld P.eekie, was celebrated
i'or his cunning and wit. His mother
having died in J.dinburgh, Archie hired
a hearse and carried her to the family
burial place in the Highlands. Hc returned; it is said, wilh the- hearse full
of..smuggled whiskey, and being teased
about it.by a friend, he said, "Wow,

L remember, says Dr. John Brown, a
story of a good old ami-burgher minister.'  It. was iti the days when dancing
was hold to 1 _  a great, sin, and to be
dealt   with   by  ;..e" sessions.    Jessie, a

divinity,  and   a   de-op   thinker,  greaily
pitying her  and  himself,  said,  "Jessie,

(Laughter.)
The present general ion did  not seem
to deserve    quite    so highly in art, in
.sculplure,   in    ai.hiU.ture  as. say, th*
Greeks:  and ihe reason, he was afraid,
must  be sought iu some defects in society and  it- mode of looking at things,
and   what   they  thought    most    worth
while.    It  was this kind of t'oelitig that
had turned the attention of many artists
to the condition of social life.    .ft was
this   which   so  greatly  influenced    Mr.
liuskin ���������who  was   keenly   interested  iu
Sheffield���������as they all knew. (Applause.)
it was  this  which  turned    Mr. IUiskm
from his proper work to social problems
��������� (hoar, hear)���������and led him to deal with
those problems  in a  revolutionary  and
��������� striking   manner  which  excited ridicule
aud opposition at ihe time, but    which
had hiicl'lhc foundation I'or a more wholesome, saner and  more  humane political
economy.    (Applause!)

now realizing that life as it is lived today is not as it ought to be. ��������� They were
realizing   that   all   this     squalor,    this
si ream of poverty, dirt, and smoke, and
other  things, among whicli  people, were
content  more or less to live, were   nol,
the conditions of thc planet, so to speak;
were   not   oondlions     with    which   the-
huinan rare ought to put up.   Those conditions were  conditions  which  the. race
had' brought about; and which only they
themselves could mend.    The earth was
beautiful in the extreme, in places where
nobody lived���������(laughter and applause) ���������
but in places whore people lived together
for social or business purposes, or convenience of ail kinds, no precautions had
been  taken  to keep it beautiful.   They   ���������
had made the earth ugly and spoilt its

It  would  make a vast  difference to
the .l'lugl'isdi  race. Sir  Oliver urged,    if
such  a   state  of things  at home could
be altered.   People did not always realize what it was  to be surrounded      by
ugliness.       Pcferring  to  various  forms
of iigline>s, including    _moky chimneys,
in which,   he said,  he wa.s  particularly
interested  from   the  technical  side,   he
remarked that this kind of thing must
be  painful���������and had b<_n  painful���������aud
if if was not, painful to  people  it  was

.niscussing the pros and cons of combustion from.the.  technical side,Sir Oliver  declared' ihat  ordinary   coal    fires
were,   very   b.upert'o.t      things,  indeed.
They  gave  some  radiation���������the    great
factor iu heating���������but they also gave a
great amount of trouble,     and     some
dirt, and the combustion was extremely
imperfect.   A coal  fire, as a matter of
fact, matte  gas and  burned   it,  but    a
gieat    deal   of   unburned  gas   went   up
.,! 1 c=eh uiUi������T_,__JL_-_._ as.a_- .as., fi re _ in the
first instance, but a very imperfect one.
.It made gas  on      tins      premises,  and
made   il   very   imperfectly.      A  savage
could burn  coal like that, and it:  was
not unite appropriate to  the "Oth century.'   A   hotter method ��������� waa  to separate' the  coke  and  the gas     purposely,
knowing      what  was   being  done, and
then,   in .the  house,' to   bum  the   gas.
He   was  convinced   that   gas  would   be
laid on  in large quantities for healing
and   cooking  purposes," and ' that - there
would be much more um* ot gv.s in  the
future.     J-'.loclricity  would  be  used  tor

"TIIK TIME _" A I. _  UOPEl-'UI,.''
Sir Oliver amused his hearers with'a
novel proposal. Jle only hoped that
some day some town or other in .England would try the experiment of having the gas made at tlio coal pit and
brought to the consuuior in pipes, instead of iu trucks and carts, in the
.line way that water and electricity
were now brought, and forbid the' importation of .ei'iuie .coal into ,tlie.. town

Jn his own experience thc privilege, had been accorded  only once before'and that was eighteen  years ago. He intimated that_ for all  practical' purposes of the tourist world  wc should be in a position .0 say wiiii  the Ancient Mariner:  We were the first who ever burst  Into  that silent sea.  The distinction did not tempt u.=. but  the chance of comparing tho interior of  a, Turkish jail with the "interior 01 JIol-  loway a.nd' Kilmainham a.hd Tiillamor"  and inanv others. Irish and English, did.  As a matter of iact. thc presentation of  my card demolished all difficulties, as,  ic'must bo gratefully acknowledged, ii.  did everywhere in the land of the gonial,  if purchasable nnd unspeakable, Turk.  The penal prison is situate in tho  heart of thc llohar.medan quarter, in a  street of crumbling magnificence, and of  precious Moorish stalactite arches hiding in mysterious shadows, such as an  would r_most welcome penal servitude  to be incarcerated in, could, he only be  assured of imbuing his work with its niy-  sticaPobscurities. "The only thing which  distinguished-the prison from any of the  other "tumbledown rookeries, or latticed  harems, of thc street was a group of  unwashed soldiers who hovered sleepily- about tho entrance and whose rifles  were thc oniv part that seemed to have  enjoyed the care of a paternal Government.     ���������������������������  ,  On the Opposite Side .  of the street stood the penitentiary,Jn  which some hundreds of the minor fry  of the criminal classes purged their peccadilloes; but having the tall poppies  of thc assassin world to choose from,  the prison.in which the common or gulden criminal wasted his sweetness only  interested us because it contained the  Governor's house. House, did I say? Our  (���������������������������worthy Governor's quarters were con-  "fined to one crazy room on the level of  ihe street, h:s escritoire, surmounted by  a gallery of photos of eminent miscreants of his acquaintar.ee, lying iu tho  only corner where any serious amount  of *simJight penetrated, and his bed  modestly stowed away iu the corner opposite, while his official majesty "was  hedged around with so little ceremony  that  a one eyed thief, a soldier and a  woman stepped in friendly    line  off the street to join  in out convorsa-  ���������������������������tionf=������������������L!he-Govcniort--lik&=-e.ver-y=.oiJiai  l.cgga r  ' Turkish official 1. had the pleasure oi  meeting, was a model of simple courtesy and good fellowship. He began business b}- producing his cigarette rase  .slid treating us to"a thimbleful of luxurious Turkish coffee as genially as an  Irish host would produce his decanter,  linguistically we got on amicably,1 although hazily, by moans of an exchange  of abominably bad French and bad Arabic, for the Governor had little French  and no English.  Thc duties of hospitality completed we  sloped across tho, street into a crypt,  where Alexander and myself surrendered  our sticks to the soldiers before an orifice wa.s unlocked for us at the bottom  of a heavy iron' barred gate, through  which we had to stoop to' squeeze ourselves as into some subterranean shrine.  We found ourselves locked in between  the iron gate through which we had been  admitted aud a second iron gate, a  yard  in front, which opened into the prison  courtyard. Here the misfortunes entailed on poor humanity from the days  of Babel down by the " confusion of  tongues began lo overtake us. As wc  presently discovered thc Governor, jhe  dragoman and myself got entangled in a  hopeless riddles of misunderstandings in  three, languages. Jt never once occurred  to me that tlie visit was to be otherwise  than an ordered inspection of ranges of  cells and private interviews with meek  prisoners, cowering under the eye of the  Governor���������������������������a' mere commonplace ceremonial of the Irish or English order,  with, of course, an element of Oriental  backsheesh thrown in. There seemed to  be some hesitation about unlocking the  ���������������������������second gate, and Alexander, with a  bmgth of face I did not in thc least_un-  .orstand at the moment, asked nie if I  really dosited to go in. ''Why, certainly." was thc reply". '''What on'carth else  did we come for?'  The Little Wicket',  in the Inner gate was thereupon unlocked, and tho Governor was the first to  step into the prison courtyard. I immediately followed. Alexander crawled  through it, with a countenance lengthier than ever, but with the expression  of resignation with which the Oriental  accepts the maddest freaks of "English"  fccentrioity (for as to expecting the Ori-  ental to master tho difference between  ''English" and "Tri&h." however humiliating to our national pride may bo ihe  eonfe-sion, you might as well expect  him to- understand the controversy  whether the main street of Dublin ought  to be called "O'Connell street'' or  " .ackvillo street.'') The lock of thc little wicket then immediately clicked, and  we stood in the open courtyard with ihe  two iron gales io freedom locked behind u-. '.Jut." I said, to the host of  my two languages, "why should not the  lady come in, too?" l-'or my wife had  been left in t'li^ space between the two  iron gates, where they had in'roduced a  chair for. her comfort. The Governor  shook his head mysteriously, and Alexander turned <up his surprised eyes to  heaven. I at once came'to the conclusion that thc difficulty was thc universal Oriental one as to thc equality of  womankind in thc assemblies of men.  ���������������������������per day, with water to wash them down  (thc loaves, I" mean, not their faces, for  water in Jerusalem is a commorlity too  precious to be put to.such spendthrift  uses.) But, in addition, the prisoner can  make a tiny poculium by his own prison  labor, and is permitted further, to receive food or money from "his friends  outside���������������������������a development of Turkish prison barbarity which might be copied  with advantage by more sanctimonious  professors ot prison philanthropy nearer,  home. Wc came, .therefore, provided  wilh it. supply of oO francs in medjidiehs  and "'metallic." lo distribute in backsheesh as a humble tribute of sympathy  b'om one who was "hand ignarus mali in  the matter of ihe discomfoi _s of prison  life. These I proposed to distribute in  modest doles at our leisure, as we stroll-,  od from coll to cell and heard the individual six-lies of sorrow.  But the Governor  the dragoman and myself were 110 sooner landed inside the locked grilles than  from all sides there poured in upon us  a horde of savages about as undesirable  looking as ever glared upon you from a.  chamber of honors���������������������������with the additional drawback of being, hungry flesh and  blood instead of wax. WoVcrc. in fact,!  in the midst of 1G0 of the choicest bandits 'and assassins of the Turkish Empire, some of them waiting to be hanged,  and all of them pretty well deserving to  be, a_d from their throats came* thc yell  winch makes one word, at least, of the  Arabic language as familiar as'the name  of Cook to the .European traveller���������������������������the  hoarse, hungry yell of "Backsheesh!"  This unexpected invasion seemed no  doubt to leave a good deal to be desired  in ihe direction of Turkish prison discipline, hut having been born myself to a  sufficient contempt i'or "law aud order," aud being, moreover, one of those  who, with Lord Mansfield, regard the  criminal on his hurdle as uo blacker  than thc Judge who sentenced him  might have been in the same environment, I was not much perturbed by the  blazing eyes and wild animal growls of  my new acquaintances. I soon also began to distinguish amid' thc mob two  prison warders, each carrying a. whip,  but in little else, either of dress, or, indeed, physiognomy, distinguishable from  their murderous flock. . The purse of  medjidiehs and "'inetallies'" had been confided to Alexander; but as it was now  evident that the distribution of the coin  was to bo the first and indeed only practical business of our visit in the eyes of  tl'c_.w_iycs_whp .were leapjngjujipon us.  the purse bearer began to evince a nervousness that soon grew to panic.  A Happy Thought   .  however, of the Governor saved ihe situation for the moment. The purse was  transferred io my wire, who from her  seat on the safe side of ihe grille was  able to make the distribution in small  quantities without any danger of a general grab with tooth aud chiw. A .short  ..peoceh of remonstrance-from the Governor reinforced by an unceremonious  application of the warders' whips upon  the bare shins of ihe ringleaders, obtained a temporary success for an arrangement by which the headsman of  each dormitory of eight or ten convicts  came forward to thc bars to rcceivejus  comrades' allowance, which was thereupon ticked off by the Governor on his  notebook.  But this was a slow process: it became more and more evident thai, nothing short of another miracle of the  loaves and fishes would make the oO  fiaiK'5 of any avail io satisfy the multitude. Thoy pressed in more and more  aggressively, with eyes like dagger-  (.hru-t0. and greedy yells, some of them  brandishing the tools with which they  had been employed on prison labor and  others utilizing skilfully the iron, with  which their .legs were chained. - The  warders' whips,., even* if ���������������������������-.there -.was room  to wield them, were no longer of any  greater efficacy than a pilch fork to  keep out tlio sea. The Governor's face,  I now" noticed for the first time, was  pale enough for a white miin; but my  first real suspicion of the sittiiition came  through a roar of psu'n from the unfortunate dragoman, who, with an agonized  groan, whispered to ui'e, "They'll'murder,  u's;".���������������������������'������������������������������������������������������.'��������������������������� ' .,'.'���������������������������  ���������������������������"��������������������������� ' So Littl"' Had'"'E>"cher-,  my wife or myself realized the situation  ���������������������������for, understanding .little of what was  passing, and taking it for granted that  all the passion and fury was simply for  Oriental mode of scrambling for coppers,  [was on the >best of terms with our  murderous friends, addressed some excellent, observations to them in the.

When our statue book was still in the  Draconian state from which it was redeemed by _ir Samuel HomiHy. and tho  penalty of death was inflicted for the  most trivial offences, surgeons were exempted from serving'on juries in capital  cases. Jt must not be supposed, however,  that this was because their profession  was believed to make them loo humane  for such work as was then imposed on  jurymen. We are sorry to say ifc was  for the opposite reason. They were exempted on tho same ground as butchers,  whose occupation, it was thought, tended to make them loo bloodthirsty! This  ought not, perhaps, lo surprise us, since  two or three centuries ago executioners  not infrequently performed surgical operations.' This seems to have been particularly the ease in Denmark; at any  rate, we have more knowledge on this,  point iu regard to tliat country than  any other.  in Janus some lime ago Dr. K. Caroc,  of Copenhagen, published a number of  documents bearing on the subject. The  most ancient of these bears date July 24,  1579, and is a license issued by Frederick Jl". to Anders l:rcimut, executioner  of Copenhagen,- granting him the right  to set bones aiid treat old wounds; he  was expressly forbidden to meddle with  recent wounds. Jn 1C09 it is recorded in  ihe municipal archives of Copenhagen  that Caspar, the hangman, had received  four rigsdalers for the cure of two sick  children in the infirmary.  ���������������������������Jn 163!3 Christian IV. summoned the  executioner of Gluckstadt, in Holstcin,  to examine tho diseased foot of the  Crown Prince. In a letter addressed to  Ole AVorra. a leading Danish physician  of thc day, Henry Koster, physician in  ordinary to the King, complains bitterly  of tbe "slight thus put upon him. He  says that for two whole months the  hangman, '���������������������������who is.as fit to treat thc  case as an ass is to play the lyre;" had  the case iu hand, and thc doctor was  not asked for advice; and although thc  case went steadily from bad to worse  the executioner received a fee of -200  ri .sdalers and a .largo .silver goblet���������������������������  "rewards," said the doctor plaintively,  '���������������������������'which the greatest among us would not  have received" had ho, succeeded in curing tlie prince according to the rules of  art.'"' ' ��������������������������� ,  Again in 1GS1. Christian \. gave a fee  of 200 'rigsdalers to thc Copenhagen  hangman for curing the. leg of a page,  hi iC95 Andreas Liebkn'ccht, thc Copenhagen executioner, was in such repute  for* his treatment of disease that hc  wrote a book en'the subject .'"in^ho  name of the holy and ever .blessed Trinity.-" In 1732 Bergen, an executioner in  Korwiiv, was authorized by royal decree to practice surgery. Kven up to  the early years of thc nineteenth century this 'extraordinary association of  surgery with the last penally of the'law  continued. Krik ]?ctersen, who was appointed public executioner at.Trondhjcm  in 1700, served ns surgeon to an infantry  regiment in the. war with Sweden, and  retired in ISM with lhe rank of surgeon-  major. Frederick I. of Prussia chose his  favorite hangman, Coblcnz, to be his  phvsieian in ordinary.  j. might be suspected that this peculiar combination of functions had Us origin in a satirical view of' the arti of healing, but in the records wc have quoted wc  can'trace nothing of the kind. - Perhaps  the executioner drove a trade in human  fat and other -things supposed to possess marvelous healing properties: he  may thus have conic to be credited with  skifl in healing, though thc association  surelv represents the lowest degree to  whicli the surgeon has ever fallen m  public esteem and social position. Compared with the hangman, a gladiator,  ..an cLe-V nn-nn -undertaker. .mayJ)e__considi  "ere.I respectable. It may bo remembered  that Martial scoffs at one who had been  au oculist and had become a gladiator,  but, ..avs tho satirist, though he changed  tho name of his trade his work remained:  jloplomachus nunc 0... fncras opthalmi-  cus Ante.  Fccisti medicus quod facis hoplomuchus.

J.o you remember the time Avhen some one scared  I lie hiccoughs away by telling you of a  whipping due for ..onie meanness.  AY el I, science has been studying hic-  ��������������������������� coughs'and caught the hiccoughs by the  "nape of the neck." The nine swallows  of water bad a little science in it, and so  did the scare euro. The seiciititic hiccough cure consists in pressing down to  numbness the nerve that connects the  stomach, heart, lungs and brain, tho  pnouinog. slie nerve. The pressure partially and locally paralyzes this nerve  and of necessity the hiccoughing 'must  cease,  Have tho hiccoughing patient sit down  and be at ease, with the muscles of the  nock relaxed as much as possible. Grasp  both sides of tiie neck somewhat toward  tho back part and press down steadily  an. as hard as tho subject may permit  for about one minute, having the patient, work thc head from sido to side.  AA .thin about one minute the nerve will  bo numbed and rested nnd the spasmodic motion will cease. It may require  longer pressure in some cases' but the  rc.-alt is sure if patience is lualutaiacd.  ���������������������������Ohio State Journal.

MOFFET   En derby   Agent for the Fnii-banks-Morse Gasoline engine  Looking Into the Future  A T the meeting of the City  ���������������������������A Council last Friday evening Mr. F. V. Moffet addressed the Council with  reference to the matter of  City Hall building. He felt  that a grave mistake would  be made, and one that the  city would regret in a very  few years, if the 'proposed  building were erected on a  site unsuited for such a building. He believed it were  far better to purchase a new  site now while city property  is selling so reasonably than  to build on a site that would  in a few years be found to  be cramped and shut in. If  a block could be purchased,  and the proposed building  erected thereon, he felt that  it would be wise to do so.  The improvement of the  grounds, by parking and  boulevards couid be carried  on from year to year, and  long before the grounds and  building were paid for Enderby would have a public  park and court house grounds  that would ��������������������������� add greatly/co  the appearance and dignity  of the city.  In reply to Mr. Moffet, Mr.  Bell said he felt the need of  a city park as much as anyone, but not in connection  with the proposed city hall.  The park should be separate  and apart from the city hall.  The hall should be situated  on the business street, close  to the business section.  In reply to the remarks of  --the mayor, Mr. Moffet said  he did not believe we should  confine our thoughts of Enderby entirely to the present  but should look into the future and build accordingly.  He saw no reason why we  should conclude at this stage  of���������������������������our��������������������������� development-w-here-  ���������������������������mrxtrjiwirwrrr _in_a���������������������������mwzvt^tmi'WKyrrrr.-wnifTyBirnyW'g^^i I *  the business  centre  of the  town would be.  Just how much goodwill  come out of Mr. Moffet'e.  argument is yet to be seen.  That he has taken the correct  view, no one doubts. Aid.  Lawes voiced what will be  the feeling of many when he  said, "Personally I feel very  grateful to Mr. Moffet for  presenting ' the question in  the light He has. It should  cause us to give the matter  serious thought."  Poultrymen  Busy  TTiEW men know the ad-  r vantages of exhibiting  better than our own poultry-  man, H. E. Waby. Writing  to the poultrymen of the district, Mr. Waby brings out  an important point: "It is  high time," says he, "for us  to make up our minds as to  whether we are going to be  represented with our poultry  at Winnipeg Industrial.  There is always a possibility  of a community putting off a  little too long the move  necessary to reach the goal  aimed at. We made a good  start with our show. Let us  follow it up by proving that  whether we have the goods  or not we are going after the  business, and that we are  organized to stay. Not only  that, but that we are organized to improve and win.  "Many birds and eggs  have been brought to Enderby at considerable expense, and it is time to realize that our home, market is  limited,- and that the best  market always lies away  from home���������������������������I mean in respect ��������������������������� to the. higher-priced  specimens. Dr. A. W. Bell  is reminding us' of our possibilities, and . is -. urging us  to send an exhibit. Anyone  wishing a copy of the Winnipeg prize list can procure  one by sending a card. Let  us not get luke-warm. " We  are going to have a good  winter show, and we shall  soon get into the lime-light  if we work together with  lots of enthusiasm. If one  or two of us try it alone and  have to enthuse others, it  =wilUbe^slo-W-,^perhaps,__b.ut  we shall get there nevertheless. I would like to emphasize the fact yet again: we  have the. climate, and none  can beat us if we say so���������������������������and  mean it. Don't think as  some seem to that because  eggs dropped to 20c the past  month poultry has been increasing too rapidly. Rather  lay it to other conditions,  hard times, etc. Enderby  doesn't cut much ice in the  outside egg market, although  it helps."  Wants to Know  Does Vernon run the band, or  does the band run Vernon? This  question is being asked by the  people of Salmon Arm just now.  The Enderby celebration committee had arranged for a football game between the Salmon  Arm and Vernon teams, and we  are given to understand that Vernon afterwards refused to play  because the band from that city  was not engaged for the day.  The lacrosse team also refused to  journey to the Riverside City  of the Okanagan and show their  ability to. play the national game,  because the superiority (?) of  their musicians was not fittingly  recognized. If these; are facts,  and we have it on good authority  that they are, the people of Vernon, the band, and the alleged  ' 'sports'' must all be afflicted with  the swelled head���������������������������Salmon Arm  Observer.

ENDERBY  CANADA'S FUTUHE.  In a recent address before tbe Canadian Club of Montreal tbe Hon.  Sydney Fisher, tbe minister of agriculture, said that tlie population of  Canada would probably bo S,000,000  in 1911, when the next census is  taken, and about 20,000,000 two decades later. But, if thc country was  to provide a good living for all these  additional millions, care must "be  taken to conserve its natural resources from this time forward.  We have a few copie _ of the  "fire number" left.  !_$!___  ,������������������&^^ Sunshine    Furnace    has  four  triangular grate   bars,  each  having "three distinct  sides.     In tlie  single-piece and two-piece grate  no   such-like  provision is made for expansion or contraction,  and a waste of coal always follows a shaking:  On the left- and right-hand sides are cotter pins, which when  loosened permit the grates to slide out.   These four grate bars  are made of heavy cast iron, and are finished up with bulldog  ..._.u      The teeth -win grind up the toughest clinker; and'  teeth.  UNS  'urnace.  because the grates are made in sections, not only can nothing but dust and  ashes pass through, but after each shaking a different side can be presented  to the fire. Also, with the Sunshine grate there is no back-breaking  movements attached to the shaking. By gently rocking the lever, first on the  left and then on the right, the ashes are released on both sides,and fall through  into the pan. flj   __V^. _0EJ>1F '        ���������������������������  .

If you are  thinking of building next  Spring, or if you expect  to repair or reconstruct any in- q  terior, you certainly ought to  send for my book about ceilings  and the illustrated    catalogue  that goes with it.  I believe I can conviuce    you  that these ceilings of mine are  '^specially the.   thing   for   the  Canadian climate, simply    because they do help   so   much  to keep a building wanner winters. They do that, because  they are heavy sheet steel without a visible seam���������������������������and so they  form an armor against cold.  I can show you, too, that the  :. reproof quality of: my ceilings  is worth a lot to you  ���������������������������worth enough to pay  tlie whole cost of the ceiling in a few years after it i.  bought. And���������������������������as these Pedlar  ceilings last, just about forever  ���������������������������they go on saving money (ia  ART  STEEL  PEDLAR  CEILINGS  For Churches, Residences, Civic Edifice. .Schools,  Libraries, Hotels, Club Houses, Office Buildings,  Factories, Shops, Stores.  reduced fire insurance premiums) ��������������������������� as long as the building  stands that they are in.

Student Rules for .Faculty Folks Who  Are  Late  Getting to. Classes.  Tiie mishap to the faculty elevator in  Hamilton. Hall at Columbia,   ' recently,  which made several instructor,-* late gel-  ting to then classes, doubtless recalled  t_  many a man the amusement he got  ;cut=o..giving-airinstniet0r-a-=eiit. in^his^  college days.*  Ol* course whenever a student shows  up late tl 1. instructor gives him a cut  or ii half cut. No university, however,  appears to have any rule governing the  nw.ttcr of lateness on the part 01' the  teacher. Tor that reason tlie students  themselves are apt io make rules, which  ihe instructor soon learns for himself  without having to he I old.  --For instance, one man at. Columbia,  who wai-u'i-. overpopular. was occasionally so unfortunate 1 . Lo be a minute  or so hue. If 'he eanio only a minute  U'te he found the classroom empty. JLI _  tned 01 u. giving the whole das., a cut.  but tin- ease wasn't helped in that way  and'tho men insisted on leaving each  time he vas late.  If he had kept 011 giving full cuts every time he soon would have -had his  out ire elos. debarred from the final  examination;, because of overeutting, and  that stale of affairs' would have produced an ���������������������������inquiry that might not have been  pleasant to the instructor.  Some other'instructors used to get as  many-as. five,, minutes, leeway. ���������������������������.The  popular profs' never were surprised i;  they came, in ten. minutes'late'.to find  the. majority  of thc class still waiting.  .When ������������������������������������������������������that'! happened' the .'instructor,  was apt to acknowledge tiu.t-.it was Ids  fault and he never charged the-absence ..  against- those -who.-had' left. Ja theory,  of course.'a!' university expects a man  to.wait for the full forty minute, period  before leaving the. classroom if his instructor isn't'there when he should be.  At Colgate there used to be a system  whereby "freshmen waited for their, instructor five minutes, sophomores three  and juniors two. This phut worked out  nicely. '" .    ,  it "always is rather a pleasing thing  for a.'man'who gives the- instructor a  cut to wander gently down the stairs  in time to meet the faculty mairpuffiiig  up the lower steps and to bow to him  with dignity and sadness as be goes by,  tempted always to say: "No use, professor. T1ie.ro isn't a soul upstairs.'' But  the ret loot ion that the exercise will do  hini a world of good always intervene.,  so tli'it tho student let? the instructor  keep right on up the stairs.

But it was only  when my companion' urged the identity  of mv zither with Israel's harp that, tlie  head' of the family would consent-.to  have it brou ,ht up to the house.

Two of the Armstrong  boys came down heavily on the  Revelstoke players, and they in  turn slugged back. It became  a case of playing for the man  instead of the ball. The result  was not pleasant either to the  . spectators or the players. The  Armstrong boys being lighter  fared the worst. In the exchange  of compliments Armstrong scored  two goals and Revelstoke increased their lead to 4. Thus the  score stood at the close of-the  game, 4-2.  The 100-yard dash was won  by V.C. Brimacombe, Buzz Moffet  second.  The relay race was won by Frank  and Buzz Moffet, V. C. Brimacombe and Bernard Corbould 2nd.

The hotels and booths were  well able to handle the hungry;  all were satisfied.  Enderby Lodge of Orangemen  was the only secret society showing its colors, May 24th.  The King Edward's decorations  were handsomer this year than  last, and last year Paddy won the  prize.  When Frank Wolfenden umpires a game, you get as square a  deal as he can give you whether  you like it or not.   .  Provincial Constables Simmons  and Gardom were here to see that  the law with reference to racing  on the public highway was respected, and as the result of their  presence there was no horse-  racing.   Men around town on May 24th  and seeing that barren flag pole  on Mayor Bell's brick block were  wondering if, after five years' of  waiting,    the    application    of  dollarino at the mast-head would  not make the nation's colors' appear. <   '..........  The street decoration committee deserves all. the nice things  said about them for. the very  handsome arch erected at the  bank corner, and the thanks of  the community is due to F. V.  Moffet for wiring the arch with  electric lights, and the A. R.  Rogers company for supplying  the juice to light them.  The city employed four special  constables and built a railing to  keep the crowd off the field, and  yet they crowded the players too  closely. No one outside of; the  players, scorers and water boys  should be allowed inside of the  railing. It should be the duty of  the specials to keep the crowd  outside of the railing, not from  under the players' feet on the  field.  One of the attractions of Victoria Day, not programed, was  the climbing of the King Edward  flag staff by ' a husky little Jap.  He quickly showed how flags are  made to grow on flag poles, and  it is to be hoped that barren flag  poles will be a thing of the past  in Enderby, especially on the day  we celebrate.  Some complaint is heard on account of the celebration committee leaving out water sports in  the day's program. Cut it out!  The place to register these com-,  plaints is in the committee room  when the program is being made  up. If any are so. indifferent as  not to attend these meetings and  lend .their0assistance in getting  up the program and making the  day a success, they have nobody  but themselves to kick. A stay-  at-home when meetings are called  is hardly the person to complain  when the few who do the work  do the best they can with the  funds at hand.  If we would have anything  worth while, we must expect to  pay for it in time and money. In  order to give Enderby a souvenir badge worthy of her growing importance, and one. that  would create a favorable impression in the minds of her .visitors,  on Victoria Day, The Walker  Press printed 200 book-mark  badges, showing a clear, com-  pTihMsiW^Kotc^^hgravure^of  at the thought of the rush it was  making to the interior, the boys  engaged to sell these badges got  tired, with the result that many  Enderbyites and visitors were  unable to get a badge. We have  75 of these badges on our hands.  They are for sale at 25c each. If  you would please your friends at  a distance, and at the same time  boost Enderby, send them these  handsome book-marks. They are  printed on' the regular 25c silk  ribbon, blue and pink, and are  adorned with the town colors.
