 Enderby, B. C, June 10, 1909  AND      WALKER'S      WEEKLY  Vol. 2; No. 15; Whole No. 67.  "XX  >c<  ENDERBY AND DISTRICT-WHAT IS BEING DONE IN A BUSINESS AND SOCIAL WAY  * **" _ _        -.'  M ^������������������**r _*_<T t     ___���������������������������     1 I     _<_      i    - AnorMatthews returned from  the Hot Springs, Monday morning, somewhat better, but still a  sufferer from rheumatism.  J. C. Carlin, of Kualt, one of  the owners of the Grindrod town-  site, was in Enderby this week  on business in connection with  the property.  The river has been gradually  lowering since Sunday, and indications are that the flood-tide  is past. Very little damage has  been reported. ������������������  A. Fulton installed the pumping plant at the home of Capt.  Wallace, south of Enderby, last  week, and on severe testing  the system works splendidly.' _  Alfred Slater, the ice cream  man, of Armstrong, was in Enderby Wednesday. . Mr. Slater is  making a wholesome article, and  is building up. a fine J)u_iness in  Armstrong, Enderby ' and ' the  Valley towns.  Rev. Mr. Earl, -of Armstrong,  occupied the pulpit in the Methodist church Sunday evening, the  arrival of Rev. Mr. Gifford being  ������������������ delayed by the washouts. Mr.  Gifford arrived this' week and  will take the services on Sunday.  Never did the country about  Enderby look better than it does  now. The alfalfa fields, grain  fields and hay meadows are a  picture, and the orchards and gar-  =__Jlens a mass of-bloom and foliage.  The May-June rains have worked  miracles.  At a meeting of the St. George's  Guild, held on June 3rd, a vote of  ' thanks was passed to the members of the Baptist Church for  lending chairs on May 24th and  also to the gentlemen who gave  ���������������������������uch valuable assistance in thp  decorations, putting up of shelves  and collecting tables.  Dr..Keith has purchased the  valuable property, corner of  Cliff and George streets, and is  making extensive improvements  to the cottage. He is placing a  stone foundation under the building, and will add. an office room  and other conveniences. This is  one of the homiest corners in  Enderby, and everybody will be  pleased to learn that Dr. Keith  has finally decided to make it his  office and home.  Rev. Mr. Hartley officiated at  the St. George's church on Sunday. Mr. Hartley ,is rector of a  Manchester, Eng., parish, is a  man of wealth, and one beloved  by his. people. Much of his time  and money are given by him in  aid of struggling mission churches -wherever they are situated.  On his visit to Enderby he gave  $250 to clean up the indebtedness  on the church lots. At Calgary,  Vancouver and Salmon Arm, Mr.  Hartley gave similar testimony of,  his generosity, leaving' behind  him a series of benificent 'deeds  that will long act^ as, an inspiration to those in humbler spheres..  Even Mara was favored by him,  a sum sufficient for the building  of a chapel being given.,  - After; spending two weeks at  Enderby and Summerland and  the lake towns, ��������������������������� Judge and Mrs.-  D.

Walker, of Winnipeg, left  for the coast cities Tuesday eve-  WALKER'S   WEEKLY  PublUhcd every Thursday at Enderby, the Gate.Way of the femeus Okanagan, Land of the Bis Canadian Red Apple and the California of Canada .

FROM ONE MAN'S POINT OF VIEWi  'sys:  The following officers were installed by Enderby Lodge No. 35,  K. of P., Monday evening: C.C.,  James Martin: V. C, Robt. Bailey; Prel., W. Robinson; M. W.,  J. Graham; K.R.S., C.E.Strickland; M. F., R. J. Coltart; M.E.,  Robt. Johnstone; M. A., E. B.  Huffman; I.G., Mr. Moore; O.G.,  J. Folkard.  Russell street is rapidly building up. Since the street was  opened last year, every vacant tot  has been sold to bone fide home  makers, and the next thing will  be handsome homes upon them.  Jas. McMahon is already building  a cottage on his lot, and Wm.  Woods has fenced his corner with  the object of putting up a handsome residence opposite that of  Robert Peel.  STAND by the town you live in -speak  well of it���������������������������boost it���������������������������be proud of it. It  may not be the best place onu earth, but  think it is and it very soon will be. Two  men were talking about Enderby. One of  them said confidently that in a year or two  its population would be doubled, trippled,  four-scored. The other spoke with as  much assurance and said it would not; that  tBrfowri^wouldheverbe-muchbiggerthan-  it is. All of which is amusing. We will  grant, for argument's sake, that both these  men are sincere, and that both have sound  reasons for their conclusions. How are we  to account for the different opinions?  No doubt the wish is father of the thought  in both cases. One man represents optimism/the other" pessimism. ; The optimist  sees the doughnut, the pessimist sees the  hole. The vision of one is enlarged; he  sees things more clearly. He believes in  working for self by working for the good  of all. Perspective is everything. The  pessimist is primarily self-ish. He stands  in the hole of the doughnut and cannot see  what is going on outside of the hole. To  him, the idea of advancement is a matter  of self-aggrandizement, self-intrusion. He  fails to see in the coming of more people,  more development, more wealth, more  life, more power, more business. All of  this would disturb the ether in the hole of  the doughnut, and perhaps the doughnut  itself would be eaten up and there would  be no hole���������������������������then where would he be!  The man who cannot see is to be pittied.  The man who will not see should be left to  his blindness���������������������������and forgotten. Enderby is  moving! And she's going to continue to  move, and move faster. The idea that you  or I, or any coterie of has-beens, are to  long hold the power we have used or misused, is silly.    Individuals come, shine,  flare, flicker and go out, and they are laid  aside. . Others take up the work. Thus we  best serve ^ the purpose of our existence,  and the: existence of .others,  p* .The,fa ct that Enderby,. is a, small place,,  has been, side-steppeji, Into a hole ariq is at  a disadvantage in- being wet-blanketed by  an. Indian reserve at- its door, the most of  /us will admit; but Enderby offers certain  advantages not to be found.any where else/  and it depends upon our, citizens whether  they will avail themselves of these advantages or not. Stand by your town. If it  has faults, do what you can to remedy  them���������������������������make it a better place bycheerfully  doing your work every day the ��������������������������� best you  can. Sooner or later you must make your  choice and either get out or get in line. If  the town gives you a living���������������������������supplies you  your bread and butter���������������������������won. for it; speak  "well-of-it-and=its-environSy-tbink-w������������������ll.of4t;  stand by it at its best.  PREMIER McBRIDE and the Minister of  Public Works will visit Enderby next  Wednesday, and they will be met here by  Mr. Price Ellison and driven to Vernon.  The purpose of their visit is to decide upon  the matter of a court house in Enderby in  conjunction with the city hall to be erected,  also better government buildings at Vernon,  matters of vital importance to the District.  The visit of the Premier but illustrates the  personal touch he has upon all matters of  public need, and it shows, too, that before  any money is spent by the government he  is going to make sure as to the need. This  has ever been Premier McBride's attitude  in such matters. It is a thoroughness that  has won for him the confidence of the people of British Columbia. That the proposed government building will go up in  Enderby, we feel sure, for the need of it is  pressing, and, if the grand jury's findings  state the case as it is, the government will  have to enlarge the buildings at Vernon.  The grand jury condemned the building  used as an asylum for the insane as being  unsuited for such a purpose, declaring it to  be more a jail than an asylum, and the  present jail was characterized as a disgrace  and a new and modern one was demanded.  "The old log building built some 25 years  ago is entirely out of date," the jury adds.  ning.   Miss S. G.k Walker accom-,  panied them as'far  as Seattle,  going thence to Los Angeles.   In,  their stay at Enderby they were  impressed by,the:. natural beauty'  and general position of the town  and recognised at once its-great  possibilities, 'Judge- Walker stating that he' found more, outdobr  comfort and pleasure here than "  at any place he had. visited. oh  the trip. -   ���������������������������  Her Efforts Appreciated^  On the eve of her leaving Ver-  non, Mrs. S. Poison was tendered  a farewell by her associates.   In,i  view of her going the following  address was read . on behalf.. of ���������������������������-  the many ladies who were fellow-'  workers in_the Hospital^id: ���������������������������;"._'.  To Mrs. Poison: We, your fel-i  low workers,, cannot:: allowyou to  leave Vernon without in _some,  way expressing .pur sense* of loss  and bur 'sincere. appreciation.of ^  your" untiring energy; in every;.-  good cause.   . ;'" ���������������������������'������������������������������������������������������*������������������������������������������������������ .*};'���������������������������??&���������������������������'?,.  . .

Aianv of Mr. Wilshirc . socialistic readers haven't been taking the interest  in Bishop Greek, "the greatest gold nunc  in the world," lhat a person would who  was selling stock for ..I a share that cost  .bout 10 "cents.. The executive committee of tbe Socialist party was _ even  moved to resolve that tbe promotion <>i  the Bishop Creek ���������������������������:>ld mine, even it it  whs the greatest in the world, was nob  one infimutel. .associated with the cause  for which nil"true Socialists are holding  Ktrcet comer meetings and getting arrested every once in a while I'or blocking  the streets.  In the meantime, however, other Socialists who haven't a very powerful  . tranele hold on their wallets and who  have "regarded any utterance from th.  month of Wil.hir. as gospel have been  move, by the touching descriptions' of  ihe .Bishop Creek mine to cut down a lillle on llu: necessities of life in order to  their comrade   financier   with   :i  .lease ���������������������������  _niall  purchase  of   .took on  thc  instalment plan.  Tho socialistic knock ngainst boosting the mine in the magazine has finally had its effect, and in the latest of  the _reat organs of the people to leave  the press Mr". W'il .hire breaks the news  this way:  This will be tho last regular announcement of prpgre.s of the work at the  mine which" will appear in Wilshire's  Magazine. .Uerea.fier stockholders will receive their news of development by a  circular, mailed from time to time as the  work progresses.  As everybody who has been following  tlie   socialistic' nock   market,  regularly  know., under th. able promotion of Mr.  Wilsbire the price of 13isho]> Creek stock  h.,1. been lising gradually. There wasn't  much of a demand for it oven at  .1   a  share when the  William  street     editor  lirst got control at a price which   was  said to be  only  a   few. thousands, just  enough   io  coax the   California   Sheriff  away from the *'mountain of gold." With  the backing of the magazine the. demand  lor slock  was so heavy that  Promoter  Wilsbire hiked the capita I izaiiou up from  .*o.000_.0  to   _^.<KM)._J0.    against    the  wishes of  many  of  his  comrade.,  and  *-'ent Lhe price up to $2.;"i(). From there, it  went to . >, and on duly 1 it was quoted  exclusively iu Wil-lm .'_ Magazine- ,._ $_.  In view of recent assurances that have  "been  made,  by -Mr.  Wil.shiro the itock-  holders liad reason to expect that     the  August number of the magazine would  tell how the -.nek was now selling above  par. .j. for tlie lip has. been sent owl in  half  ..  dozen different .languages  that  the comrades could look I'or that before  tli������������������ end of the .summer.

Mr.  Hassan goes further into the subject of  graphite and says.:  "Prior to these examinations Mr. Hassan examined the most valuable deposits  of graphite, ai Crc:ivil!c, iu the i'rovinee  of Quebec, Canada.'-'  The booklet doesn't say tliat Mr. Has-.  ..nu made (his examination for the den-  ville Graphite Company, a % ..000.000  concern, whicli had its head offices at  170 Broadway until it fizzled out. The  company had graphite all right, but it  also had a lot of mica which made the  grs.phite useless.  The secretary., the graphite company  for which Mr. Hassan made his '..animation was W. .). Byrne. According to the  literature of the graphite company Mr.  Byrne was "active in the organization of  the Black Diamond Anthracite Gaol Company, one of the recent successes of the  business world.'5  The .Black Anthracite Coal Company went to smash iu 190.3 :>,fter the  fact came out that Terence V. Powderly,  former Immigration Inspector, got  $100,000 worth of stock for the use'of  his name as President.  Of course all this has nothing to do  with the Bishop Creek "mountain of  gold." At least cue of its stockholders  is prospering these, days.

In l.SS-j Mr. Seutt was selected by Mr.  Howard Vincent, the founder of the  Criminal Investigation Department, to  be one of tho~e. who should be stationed  at headquarters, and then Mr. Scott's  real work began.

A shower of metal of this sort seems  like rather an unpleasant thing, but the  company has had its pier in the same  lo.-tttiou for so many years that its  employees have become accustomed to it  and are inclined to think it a joke. ���������������������������  '���������������������������They never hit a. ybody yet," the men j  =ay iu 'explanation of their lack of fear, j  "and most of us have had so much prac- j  tice in netting out of the way that we're I  (.00 quick for any blanked piece of steel j  that ever fell from a bridge." |  Xow and then a spike falls point down-;  ward and sticks upright in the roof of!  the pier or on the deck of a ship, giving j  the unaccustomed beholder something of j  a shiver when he thinks of what might '  h  tales  the, officers of the line say are exaggerated. Nothing,'they say, ever really  caine through the roof: the roof is too  s.ron ..

There is a little town called Peldkircb  on the frontier of Austria, on the 111, o\x  affluent of the Rhine. l".t ngmbcrs under  three thousand inhabitants. Tn tho year  170!', when the armies of Napoleon were 0  sweeping over thc continent, Mesjcna.  one of his generals, suddenly appeared  ou tlie heights above the town at the  head  of  eighteen  thousand  men.  It was 1'i.ister Day, and the morning  sun as it rose glittered upon the weapons of the French, at the top of the  rnagc of hills west of- Feldkireh. Tho  town council hastily assembled to consult what was to be done. Defence wa.s  impossible.  - -Should..:.-deputation  be sent Jto_Mris-   sena with the  keys of  the  town, wifli" "  an entreaty lhat he should treat     the  place,  with mercy?

"Colonel," he asked, "how much is  this wagon worth?"  "I don't know," was thc answer.  "Much or little wc can't afford to lose  it."  "Well but Colonel" persisted the amateur soldier '���������������������������'you might give mo a rough  idea of the value."  "About i.'200" said the Colonel testily.  "Very well" was thc answer.

P.i'lTlSH A1LM1" POLICY.
Vou    want   for an island that is the
centre of an empire a. strong, relatively ..mall,  but very highly  trained regular force.     J1-   is'   not- true to say lhat
.ma
r-ee'tions of the military units are loge-.,
and   a?   the   force   would    extend j
d to  between sixteen iind .

nhui,
the him
our   oversea-    loree    is   -so very
.verything   is   relative   in   thi< world,
and 'it  is""enormously larger ,than  tiie
overseas   force    of   any   other   power.
Germany or France cannot send overseas such ;i large force as we can.   And
the   reason    we   have    one so large i.s
that   we   are not merely an island, but
the  centre   of   a   great   empire' responsible for the peace and safety of over
-100 millions of human souls .  (Cheer?.)
Now it. this be i-lie' true principle w.
becin to' .et a  little light on the problem,    it would  be very unwise to depart    from    those    principles'   L . have
named.     -There are those who say yon
would be    more safe   if in addition to
the navy you keep up a great army like
the. continental armies.   Jlow could'you
use'such an  army.   ���������  "What would  Income of it?    The" great armies  of tho

years    with    ihe "colors, and a greater
part ot that time over the sea.    If you
had   a   great,   army for home use you
would, r fear, starve   and   reduce your
regular over-seas army, .a-nd you would
incur such au enormous cost that you
would   lake  money  which -is necessary
for the regular army.a ml navy.   There
would be great danger of Mail. ��������� A cold

PUTNAM'S  PAINLESS
CORN EXTRACTOR
Touch.
It i.s well known that the torpedo is
au instrument of modern warfare. Thc
purpose' is lo sink a tube containing
deadly explosives beneath an enemy's
ship, and ou a. signal to cause it to explode and destroy the ship. It has not
been very successful, and may never lie.
Some think it is au invention of man,
but it is only au imitation of a perfect
machine which is not yet fully understood.
"The torpedo ray ha_ no wires fo Jiis
iir-iruinent; hc has only io see the
fish he desires as food iu ihe distance,
and by an effort, -of will he can make
them dead. This perfect-expression of
electric power has been in existence
throughout thc ages among fishes, and
man is only now discovering its first
outlines."���������'if. Punn iu Contemporary
'He view.
The touch of the torpedo is death: thc
touch of the Almighty to His enemiesis
death also. Survivors stand amazed and
say, "This i.s thc finger of God. Despise!, wonder and they-perish. Sometimes if is a word, a look, a breath, .
i sound: sometimes it is less than these;
a mere feeling of dismay.
.Villi-these feeblest of instruments Gcd
often works with men; often the instruments are seen, as often they are not
.-.oil, but they are operative, find to the
enemies they are destructive; 'Mio touch-
eth the hill.-, and they smoke." '-Pity mc,
pity me." saith Job, "for the hand of
Goth hath touched me." Jesus touched
the hand of the fever-stic-ken, .and the
fever left her.���������3fatt. viii. li.
The touch of lhe torpedo i.s death: the
touch of Jesus is life. This is conversion, being bom r.gain: .with trembling
delight it run's through the whole man,
and is the beginning of a reconciled' acquaintance with God.
It work.-, differently in different men.
.ome are quick of apprehension,-and are
conscious of renewal. They feel themselves transformed: the stony heart is
taken away, and the heart of flesh is,
given: "they have the '���������'substance .of
things hoped for. the evidence of things
not seen." Others receive the saving
touch, and arc slow to perceive, timid
aud careful, yet they are'conscious of
growth in a silent.power, and the sensitive, sou! gathers strength'to sing the
_ong of salvation.        "
A; humble preacher once discoursed on
bread; he said it-is not bread in',a barn,
or a shed of outhouse, or in a stall in
the market place, Avith no one in attendance, only a sign, put up. '���������Come and
help ' yourselves." '" It is bread in my
mother's house.- served by living hands,
sanctified by living smiles, which mean
;i whole hearted welcome, and intention
to do you good. Jesus never give, spirit-
_al ble.ssin.s-apart from himself. <'His
voice is, "Come unto me." If you want
lo help another he says. "Bring liim unto
me." Oh! the 'ioy of His presence, the
benediction of his company, the gifts
from his own hands, purchased and made
sure for all "who Idust in him.

that yeaT, 1905. the strikes numbered 2,-
077. involving 8,292 establishments and
170,337 wise earners, each of whom lost
an average of Iwejity-one days work.
In fact that loss applied-to 221.080 persons thrown out of work. In 1S92 the
days lost by strikes were about 4.500,000,
causing a loss of wages of about $7,500.-
000.'In the twenty-five years the. strikers 'numbered 0,750.000 and tlie "locked-

The trades most affected were tlie
building trades, which stood for 2f< per

cent, of all the establishments involved
in strikes. Five Statc3, New York, Pennsylvania. Massachusets, Ohio and Illinois
suffered'63 1-2 per cent, of all the strikes
in tlie twenty-five years.
Labor organizatons caused 09 per cent.

It  may enable one to take the  easy way out of a difficulty,  and appear respectable, but  the time comes when the  penalty must be paid. In  small communities we are  prone to forget the disciplinary intent of law, and often  we wink at the law-breaker  and ignore the law. The  side-stepping continues unchecked, and the side-stepper  apparently has as little respect for law as the dumb  animals. And perhaps he  has in his own heart as little  respect for himself as he has  for the law. Laws are made  for a purpose: not with the  object of letting each individual obey or not obey as he  chooses. The purpose of all  law is to uplift���������������������������to make  men better���������������������������to bring about  a higher civilization. When  we side-step a law, carelessly  observing its precepts, we  swing back to a lower manhood. And the men in authority permitting, such a  practice have much to answer for, not in the offense  alone, for this may be trivial,  but in the encouragement of  a disrespect for law which  must bring to the offender  a meaner disposition if not  deep "sorrow in after years.  Every boy and every young  man in the country should  have placed in his hands the  letter written by the unfortunate Deputy Surveyor-  General of New Brunswick  iust before he took^his own  life: "I cannot face the  publicity of my defalcation,  as it will be styled, and could  not endure the regret and  pity of my friends, and the  scorn and blame of my enemies. For some time I have  known that this must come  to an end, and you can-imagine what my life has been  with this hanging over me,  and I cannot endure it longer.  If, in the goodness of your,  hearts, you and your colleagues can do anything for  my wife, for God sake do it  and not let her starve."  These are the last words  of a man highly respected in  the community���������������������������a man who  had every opportunity to  make his life one of usefulness and service. Yet, he  was a side-stepper. It would  have been more to his credit,  even after his defalcations,  had he stayed and faced his  punishment. But he sidestepped to the last. Just  where in his career he sidestepped duty for the first  time, perhaps he himself  could not tell, but we may be  sure it was in a small way  and without any desire to  injure anyone. Little by  little the habit fastened itself  upon him, until he was gone  ���������������������������he was never a free man  after he became a side-  stepper. It may have been  when he was a mere lad in a  country villiage.  Canadian Wheat in Demand  AN apt cartoon in the  5 Minneapolis Journal represents the flour mills of the  United States taking legs  and running across the border into Canada, in case the  tariff provision is repealed  by which Canadian wheat  may be milled in the U. S.  and have drawback of duty  when exported as flour.  ' 'The wheat must go to the  mills, or the mills will go the  wheat: its up to Congress to  say which," is the wording  of the cartoon. So great has  become the Canadian wheat  crop that the farmers of  Washington, Oregon, North  and South Dakota, and Minnesota are fighting to ore-  vent the removal of the import duty on wheat, while  the mills are trying as hard  to get a tariff provision  which means milling in transit duty free.  Commenting upon this  phase of the wheat question,  the American Review of Reviews says: "It is to the direct advantage of the Dakota and Minnesota wheat  raisers to have the Canadian  grain milled in the United  States; for whatever adds  to the prosperity of Duluth,  Minneapolis, an d other  American milling points increases the home market for  all kinds of farm products,  and adds to the value of  every acre of farm land.  Since the surplus Canadian  wheat will in any case go to  the European market, it  ought to get there byway of  our mills and our railroads if  legislation can induce it to  move in this direction."  By the same token, our  Canadian farmers ought to  be as anxious to draw the  mills across the border, and  in order to do so should favor  and export duty on wheat.  What adds prosperity to Duluth, Minnesota, and other  American cities, would add  prosperity to our Canadian  cities if kept on this side of  the border.

Enderby Improvements  The laying of a surface-drain  system last year was one of the  best things t done in Enderby  since incorporation. The street  committee is. now lowering the  Cliff-Belvedere street drain,  which will add still more to the  efficiency of the system. If at  the same time a drain could be  laid on Russell street it would  be well received by the property  owners.  Sidewalks are being repaired  all over town, and the next move  will be the replacing of the two-  plank walks with. walks of uniform size.  The last day of June has been  set as the final day on which  tenders will be received for the  street improvement debentures.-  Already some very satisfactory  offers have been received for the  bonds. Work in accordance with  the improvement by-law will be  pushed rapidly.  The building of an approach to  the public road on the Lawes hill  by the city, is now being considered and will, in all probability,  be undertaken as soon as the  funds voted for the purpose are  available. The opening of a road  on the crest of the Lawes-Barnes  hill property would give Enderby  a driveway that would surpass  in beauty of landscape, foliage  and flowers, many of the famous  driveways that the tourist world  goes wild over. It would T also  open up a residential and fruit-  raising area the equal' of which  the whole Okanagan cannot produce. The city cannot do better  than lend every, assistance, possible to this project, as it means  much to the. prosperity of Enderby, and the development of the  section.  - .      < -     ��������������������������� .   ,". . ���������������������������*_  We Sell Oil and Gasoline Stoves  The Early Breakfast Cooker  Refrigerators, Camping Outfits  . .

The proposed electric  road into Grand Prairie may be a  dreamr-but-it__.is__one__ of those  dreams that come true.

Without mental or bodily labor to  counteract it, much ;smoking' is injurious.  Outdoor exercise is indispensable.

HOW   RUSSIANS   SPEND   EASTER.
Easter in Russia is not only a great
religious festival, but may be regarded as the national holiday. The Russian is a famous holiday maker, for
a full quarter of the year is taken up
with public holidays. . Every holiday
is "eagerly welcomed; familiarity in
this case does not breed contempt,
but at Easter all public institutions,
banks and offices, shops and places
of business are closed for a week,
and the whole country gives itself up
to pleasure and amusement. /
The Russian seasons are not unlike
the Canadian, for at Easter the long,
cold winter months have* passed or
are'about to pass, "and for weeks previously tho hearts of\ all have- been
turning with eager anticipation to the
coming of this festive season. Should
it happen that'the feast occurs'in "the
midst-*of frost and snow, it matters
not1. Spring will soon be there, and
the magic transformation scene that
we shall soon witness will occur there,
too, with tiie sam-c marvellous rapidity. The green blades of tlie grass,
the . early spring flowers, will soon
appear, and nature generally will
speak of a joyful resurrection.
After the long fast which in Russia
marks the i.emen season,- the pleasures of thc coming Easter can be appreciated. No other country keepi _
fast more severely. Not only is all
meat forbidden, but even milk, eggs,"
cheese,, butter and fish. Caviare,
dried fish and shell-fish arc allowed
and on Saturdays and Sundays the
'.Vile is not so strictly enforced. ,
Palm Sunday, or Willow -Sunday,
as it is known in Russia, is thc only
real break in thc fast until Easter;
Bundles of willows and palm branch;
es are carried by the peas-ants, and
at the church doors the peasant girls
stand with baskets of artificial flowers for sale���������their own production.
and in the making of which they sliow
considerable skill.
Every one must carry into thc
cnurch some plant or .flower to be
.j] est. d=b y=tl ie"-"i _ie.t.
Next follow six clays of , rigorous
fasting. No visits to friends, no
amusements of any description may
lake place. The duty of confession
and preparation for sharing in the
solemn rites of Holy Communion occupy the attention to the exclusion
of all other thine.
Easter egcs of all kinds play an important part during the festive week.
Every one gives and receives presents,
and much time "and"thought itre'ex-
pended in tho preparation and coloring of thu eggd without winch no
Easter would "be complete. The egg.
are of all kinds, from nal eggs, hard
boiled and colored slightly, to wooden
ones made for sale by the peasants.
One of the principal sights during
L'a.ssion week is thc shops filled with
eggs, not only iho confectioners' with
its chocolate and sugar wares, but the
silversmiths' with little egg-shaped
cases enclosing rings and other valuable articles. .
Every one considers it'*'de rigeur to
appear' in new clothes, and the millinery stores and shops are besieged
by eiiL'er throngs. Scarcely a single
person" can be met who is "not.laden
with parcels of various descriptions.
In the house all is confusion on the
Saturday preceding Easter Day,"Everything iiiust.be. turned out a.nd every
corner well cleaned, the kitchen floors
made as white as possible,'-and thc
tables spread.
On Friday takes place.-, the-peculiar
service known as 'The Burial of
Christ' During ��������� v .sne.rs"> the 'tomb of
Christ' is brought, from the holy place
and set in the centre of the church.
H night a solemn service is held and
amidst the tolling of bells and the
soft, low chanting, the k. n representing tho bod. ',a placed in its last
resting-placo and  left  in  darkness. _
Eoster Sunday bears many beautiful names commemorative of the event
celebrated as 'Splendor Bearing Sunday.' 'The Great and Holy,' 'The
Opener of the Gates of Paradise.' 'The
Sanctifier of the Faithful,' and 'The
passage from Darkness to Light.' The
day is ushered in with a solemn midnight service. A visitor to Russia has
described the service as he witnessed
it. The finely-decorated chapel is
well- filled. Officers in uniforms,
ladies and children beautifully dressed give almost the appearance of a
ball-room. The ceremony is most impressive. At' a quarter to twelve the
chanting of 'Gospodi pomilni/ (Lord,
have mercy upon us) commences, low*
and soft, and is constantly repeated
in chorus. The dimly lighted chapel,
the priests in robes of pure, white and
dazzling' silver, the silent crowd,
each holding an unlighted taper, the
solemn chant, with no' accompaniment, for organs are not allowed in
the Greek Church, produce a sensation of awe. Just before thc midnight
hour, the presiding priest advances to
thc tomb, stoops and, looking in, discovers the grave to be empty. He
announce- the fac< to the multitude.
Then tolomnly followed by the other
priest������������������>��������� bearing censers, he leaves the
chapel t'i seek the place 'where they
have laid  liim.'
Re-entering the    chapel    after   the
booming of cannon outside has    an-_. "J
nounccd the midnight hour,-the priest ' .-'
in laud" tones cries out 'Christos vos-
