Poison  ' of the property, stock and fixtures  of the Harvey & Dobson estate  gives Enderby another strong  mercantile institution, in . the  hands of a trio of sterling young  men, new to the community, but  not to the business they have engaged in.  The Poison Mercantile .Co. Ltd,  which is the title of the new firm,  will have at its head; Mr.. Poison  himself. The store will be handled by S. H. Speer, his son-in-  law, , and. his two sons, F. and  G. Polsoni All of these are energetic, thrifty young businessmen, and they should bring to  the business that vim, snap and  enthusiasm that spells success  in any language and under any  sun. .Mr. Speer has been in the  service of W. R. Megaw, the  well-known merchant,, at Vernon,  and his experience there has  placed him well in touch with the  Okanagan trade. Mr. Forbes  will be retained on the books.  The .store is beingrenoyated  throughout. . Carpenters r and  painters are busy this week making the interior of the building  over again, preparatory to receiving the new stock in all lines  which has already been ordered.  It is the intention of the new  firm to give the public the advantage of the reduced price at  which the stock was bought, and  they hope to throw the store open  to the public early next week.  In the Public Interest .  Stevens is not only willing but  anxious to' do anything that  would contribute to the up-building of the town or the pleasure  of its people. With row boats  and canoes to be had so readily  through the W. R.

The Knights of Pythias would  add greatly to the convenience  of their hall if they would light  the stairway, to it. One light,  properly placed and shaded at  the street doorway would do it.  At the. present time the stairs are  as dark as Egyptian night to anyone coming out of the brightly-  lighted hall. Such an approach  to a public hall would be condemned wherever a pretense was  made to guard the public's safety.  We are quite sure the Knights  do not wish it to be said that they  are indifferent to the public need.  We have been requested to ask  if it is not possible to have a channel in the river opened so as to  permit row boats and other small  craft to navigate up the stream.  There is no doubt if the roads  and streams committee of the  Board of Trade will take up the  matter with the A. R. Rogers  Lumber Co. that an opening  will be made to allow the river to  be used this season.   Manager  __r_rwr.  FROM ONE MAWS POINT OF VIEW i  SOME numskull has accused the Saturday Sunset of expressing ' Views not  . in harmony with the proposal of a  Federal contribution for Imperial protection." Oh, lordie! Never mind, ' 'Bruce".  When we get our flying machines goings  we'll forget all about the Dreadnaughts,  =and^wish-we-had-not=sunk-so-many-billions-  in them. Then, your logic - will be appreciated; but not now, not now. We Anglo-  Saxons are in a nebular state; our god is  one-sided, one-eyed, and without ears or  feeling; we are ultra-religious, and long on  prayer, pipe and the macular, and every  prayer has Dreadnaught attachments and  Lyddited a-h-mens. Now, we see. things  darkly, or not at all; the handwriting on  the wall is lost upon us. We believe our  salvation is in Dreadnaughts, and Dread-  naughts it must be. When the inevitable  comes���������������������������when we have brought upon ourselves the destruction we are preparing for  ���������������������������there will not be a voice of pity heard in  all Christendom for us. With all our intelligence, we Anglo-Saxons are savage. With  Great Britain, Germany and America tumbling over each other in a-mad race for  supremacy in destructive ability, what are  we to expect from the other races? That  the end of the destructive era is at hand is  certain. Perhaps before our Dreadnaughts  are in the water they will have been made  useless but as transports. The flying machine, in the perfection of which Germany  leads the world, is an assured thing. Only  the other day the Germans maneuvered  with a war baloon carrying 26 men and  war material. Sir Hiram Maxim, the  American-born and British titled inventor,  foresees the almost immediate end of war  while the enemy: is destroying your cities,  argues the, baronet inventor, you can be  .destroying his cities: But such mutual, des-  \tr.ucti^  truction, and. that on such a scale as of  necessity to'preclude war. The nations will  simply be compelled to make agreements  among themselves on no account to resort  to war, and the guaranty that each nation  will keep the peace will be the fact "that to  make war will be to commit economic suicide. Sir Hiram may be a dreamer, but'the  Maxim implements of war- do not lead one  to believe that he is. But whether his prophecy overleaps the mark. or not, it is certain that the Dreadnaught era is to open a  way for a more sane and scientific civilization. The destructive era will be followed  by the constructive, when men will learn  -the Better,Way _1_   BOUQUETS are for the thrower as much  as the person hit. Pleasure of giving  is lost upon a non-appreciative audience, however large. When the Vancouver  Saturday Sunset tosses the following journalistic bouquet at us, we are honor bound  to smile, bow, look sweet and carry it away  with us behind the wings. This whether it  is deserved or not. Oftimes a poor artist  walks off with the cabbage: "Walker's  Weekly remarked some time ago that the  public does not appreciate its good things.  Evidently that conclusion does not apply to  the ffood people of Enderby, for Walker's  Weekly has recently been greatly enlarged  and improved and is a decidedly lively and  progressive paper. Such prosperity in a  newspaper can be had in only one way���������������������������  viz., by public appreciation. Walker's  Weekly deserves all it gets, too. May it  continue to prosper is the sentiment of all  its newspaper confreres in British Columbia." It gives us much pleasure to have  this appreciation shown by an outside paper  of the loyalty of the people of Enderby to  their local paper. Without this loyalty we  could not have accomplished what we did  in the past year, nor would we be justified  in reaching for still bigger things. But we  have had confidence m the people of En  derby, and results have justified that con-  because of the flying machine.   Of course, I fidence���������������������������and will justify.  where the Grindrod bridge is to  be built.

Terrible Slaughter Goes on Annually  and Fortunes Are Made In Tusks.  (By Frank 0. Carpenter.)  Zanzibar.���������������������������Sixty-five   thousand      e/_-  phants  were  killed  in Africa last year  and more than a million and      a  halt'  pounds of ivory were taken from thorn  and shipped off lo Europe.   Of this fully  one-third  came from  Zanzibar, another  third was from  Portugucsi > Kast     and  West Africa, and  a  large  part  of the  balance was from the valley of the Congo.    Gape  Colony  furnished a hundred  thousand pound?, Egypt three hundred  thousand pound . and a large part came  from   the   Niger  .tcritories  and  Lagos.  During the last six months I have been  Traveling   through   the   lands   of  ivory  and elephant.'?.    1 saw tusks for sale in  the   Egyptian   Sudan.     At  Mombasa  I  was shown $50,000 worth of ivory in one  .pile, au 1      during my travels through  Uganda and German East Africa 1 passed many  long lines of porters carrying  elephants' tusks on their beads or tied  to   long    poles    or    rested    on    their  shoulders.  Great   Ivory   Market.  Zanzibar has for years oeen one of  the chief ivory markets of the world.  There arc companies here which have  their buyers and traders scouring German and British East Africa, as well as  the Portuguese possessions, farther  ���������������������������south. These men take beads, cottons,  and other merchandise to trade with the  natives, and when they have accumulated a cargo they send it on the heads of  porters down to tiie seacoast. .AJuch i=  now coming to Lake Victoria   and over  which have 'lied natural deaths. This is  composed of thu enormous tusks of aged  elepharrts which have dropped in their  tracks or have been killed by lions and  other wild beasts. Their bones lie where  the huge animals fell, and the earth and  leaves have covered them so that they  are frequently hidden from view. 1 iu'11  told that the pygmies have killed many  elephants with poisoned arrows, but, not  knowing the value of the tusks, have  left them lie idle where they fell. Some  of this dead ivory has been injured bf  the forest fires, but that imbedded in the  mud or covered with vegetation is still  of great value.  Elephant  Meat  Good to   Eat.  I met the other night an old elephant  hunter who has made many thousands of  dollars in ivory, lie lias not only shot  elephants, but eaten them, and he tells  me the meat is not a't all bad. A good  sized animal often weighs as much as  five tons, and when on. is killed the  natives come in for miles around and  have a great feast. They cut up the  huge beast wi'th axes and knives and  tear the moat off in strips and smoke it  as we smoke beef.   They make elephant  APPARENT.  Nick���������������������������There goes an art enthusiaat.. Tom.  paint,  paint, paint.  Tom���������������������������Yes, it shows 011 her face.  Her mind is nothing but  tion to the elephants' tusks, called white.  the Uganda ]'!ailroad   to Mombasa  A  great deal goes to Tabora, in the. centre  of German East Africa, and thence on  east to Bogomoye, on the coast opposite Zanzibar, while other caravans bring  . ivory to Mogoro and it is sent thence by  railroad to Dar es Salaam.  There are herds of elephants about the  flopes  of  Mount  Kilimanjaro, and the  hunting goes 0:1  iii   the forests of the  Great i.i ft valley.    In British East Afri-  ra. it costs $2.50 for the right to shoot  elephants, and a hunter dares not kill  more than two during a season.    Jt is  against  the   law to kill  the  baby  elephants or the cow elephants there, and  the same regulations prevail in Uganda.  In the British. Sudan a license is required to shoot any kind of big game, and  this is also true of British'Central Africa. In German East Africa hunters are  charged a few rupees for their elephant  shooting licenses, but they must pay a  royalty to the government on all the ivory they get. As it it .there is considerable  profit in  the  business and  in  the  German   colonies  a. fairly  good  hunter  often makes big money.     A single elephant may give tusks worth a thousand  dollars and upward, and an old bull may  produce three  ar four  hundred pounds  of the choicest ivorv.  steaks and roasts and (hey cook tlie  trunks and feet in holes in the ground.  The foot is considered a delicacy. It is  prepared by making a fire in a hole and  laying the foot on the burning coals,  mouth of the hole and a layer of green  leaves is spread upon them. A thick deposit of earth is placed on 'iop and the  meat i* allowed to cook and steam for  sever::! hours. After it is taken out the  skin is removed, when the jelly-like interior is ready for eating. 1 am told thai  it is so tender iha'fc it can be scooped up  with   a  spoon.    The  ordinary  elep'mnfc  African Ivory the Best.  ThisAfrican ivory brings the highest  prices in the markets. It is superior to  any other in the size of the tusks. 1 have  scen some which arc nine feet long and  there are some which weigh 200 pounds  each. The average weight of a tusk is  much less than this, and one of a hundred pounds is quite valuable. In India  the. average tusk does not weigh fiftv  pounds, but tha; of the African elephant  is much heavier. Many of the "tusks are  broken when they are brought into the  market.     The    elephants use them  for  steak is biack in color, and when cooked  it looks and tastes a' little like corned  beef.  Great Ivory Trust.  The European nations which have colonies  in Africa are .trying to keep    the  elephants from being destroyed.   This is  especially  so  of Belgium,   whieh   hopes  some day to form*an ivory monopoly. A  great part of the elephants are still living in the valley of the Congo, and so  many have died that it is expected that  ivory will grow more valuable from year  lo year   As it is now., the amount .old  brings in millions of dollars, and   most  of this cornea from the auctions at Antwerp.    In  that city  there  arc    several  hundred   thousand  pounds   ot  ivory  on  hand,   and   sales  are   made  about'four  times a year.   These sales are duly advertised   and   buyers   from    everywhere  come to attend them:    The other chief  markets are Liverpool and London.  During a recent visit to the Colonial  Museum at Brussels I saw one of the  heaviest elephant's tusks ever found. It  weighs over 200 pounds, and as I stood  beside it it reached high above my bead.  The biggest ivory<Slu._k ever discovered  was brought, to Tabora. in German East  Africa, in 1SSC, and was shipped from)  there (o Hamburg. It was almost ten  feet in length. ,  America Gets the Best.  The ivory dealers here tell me that the  best of the ivory goes to America, and  that the second and third class tusks  are  consumed in Europe.    The fourth grade  ivory.  Since Germany has gotten possession  of the mainland opposite here the ivory  trade has been diverted to Dar <"s  Salaam, and a large part of the product  now goes there. This trade will increase with the building of the railroad,  which is now being pushed on toward  Lake Tanganyika. It will go to Tabora,  and from there probably on to Ujiji,  with a branch to the Victoria Nyanza.  The shipping of Par cs Salaam is rapidly increasing. That port has a good  harbor, and the largest steamers are  now calling there.  Queer  African   Natives.  The   Germans   arc   rapidly  exploring  their colonics, and they are finding some  strange things away out here in the Af-  riean   wilds.    They  have altogether 7.-  000,000 or  8.000,000  of  the  natives in  their part of the  white man's burden,  and they are divided up into many nations and tribes.    Some of the most intelligent  are  about Tabora,  and   it  is  from  there that the colony expects to  get the labor  to  cultivate  the  plantations along the sea coast.    The natives  of that region have a king and subordinate chiefs, and women are so highly  regarded that they .are sometimes elected as the chiefs of their respective villages.    These  people believe  in  spirits,  and they think that the dead live again  as  sp.vits.    Every  chief  has  a hut  in  which the spirits are supposed to dwell.  They   have  medicine  men. and   witch  doctors,  and   they  think   that a  good  medicine man can change himself into a  wild animal at will and thus torment his  enemies.  Education of the Negroes.  The Germans are ruling these people  to some extent through their chiefs,  and they aie establishing schools to  teach iheoi. The missionaries are also  at work in different parts of German  East Africa and the Government has  high     schools    and    manual     training  seven  feet    tall, standing like a giant  pi6Tnhg~Y_"p Footstfrnrtearing "d own TreesT  and also for fighting their enemies. The  average tusk is strong and elastic;  but  it can be broken, and the ends are sometime* snapped off.    Ivorv1 tusks arc always .-old  by  weight,  and the  traders  jell me that in buying them of the natives they have-to bo careful to see that  pieces of iron or hits of stone have not  been     driven  into  the  hollows of  the  horns io make them weigh more.  -Pulling an   Eleohant's Teeth.  Many of you have been in the hands  of a dentist and have seen how he almost  breaks your jaw in pulling a. molar with  a long'root;.;-The tusks are really elephants' teeth, and it is difficult to ���������������������������->.-. !  them nut of a dead elephant.   Thev are  Jit led into a bony s-oeket. und the 'roots  go almost up 'to the ey-i--.   A <u-k oidit  feet long may have two fi.t of its root  imbedded in (he .-ktill, and if it is taken  away at once the head has to b<: ..-hopped  to pieces to get it out.  Jn addition to the tii.������������������ks the elephant  has six great teeth inside its mouth on  each .side its jaw above and below, and  these are almost as firmly imbedded as  the tusks themselves. The tusks rue  ���������������������������hollowed about half way up. The smallest forms a big load for a man, while  one weighing 1.30 pminds requires four  porters to carry it. Such men are paid  from 3 to 5 cents a day lor their Inh'ir.  so.that the oust ot transportation is not.  heavy.  Digging Up Dead I very.  Have you ever heard of dead ivorv?  There is a vast quantity of it still left .11  Africa, and thousands of pounds are  shipped to the ports every year. Dead  ivory comes from animals which have  died a natural death, or from tusks  which have been gathered by the chiefs  of 'the '������������������������������������������������������ill.igos and stored away. Ivory  has always been an evidence of wealth in  Africa, and some of the petty African  kings have piled up ivory as our misers  hoard money at home. * Some oi them  Lav. buried it near their villages ami  others have made stockades of ivory  tusks about their dwellings. During recent years some of such ivory has been  gathered together, but there is said to  ivory is sent to"East India for filagree  work,  and   the poorest  of   all  goes   to  _ChinaL lu.re_ it_ js used  for inlaying fur-  "jiit"ui.~aTi7l"-l3.._^  ivory is employed in making piano keys  and  fan   sticks and  also   for the  little  statuettes cut out by tin Japanese. Much  of Uic product   goes into billiard   balls,  knife handles, combs and fancy articles.  During a visit I o;:ce paid to "Sheffield,  England.   1   was  shown   about  9100,000  worth of ivory which had been brought  there to be used lor knife handles, and  T saw them sawing   up    the tusks into  strips for. this  purpose. ..in sueh-work  every .scrap of the material is saved, the  shavings    and (hist    being valuable  unmaking ivory black or artists' pigments.  Mammoth Specimens of Ivory.  Some  of the  ino*t remarkable   ivory  used  within recent years is that which  has come from the mammoths found in  tin;  tundras  of Siberia.    This   is   from  hi:go animals which  lived ages ago, but  whose   bones,  protected   by'  the'"'frozen  soil of northern Asia, are as good to-day'  ns_ when  the animals died.    Jt  i.s even  said that in some cases the entire carcasses of the   'mammoth.,    have    been  found, their frozen  flesh, skin and hair  having been thus    kept for these thousands of years.   The first of this frozen  ivory was found over Hi 10 years ago, and  about  seventy   years   since   the  annual  output  was estimated-  at  over '100.000  pounds.    It is said that more than 1,000  mammoth  tusks  were sold  in  the year  1S72.    At   present  the  greater  part   of  said ivory is going to China.  It does not  compare  in   quality   with   our  elephant  ivory, the greater part of it being poor,  while some-is absolutely worthless.  Germans  Enter  Into Competition.  The Germans are now competing with  the   British     for   the    transcontinental  trade of Central Africa.    The old slave  route  began at  Ujiji, on Lake  Tanganyika, and came across German East Africa to Bogomoyo. and thence by boat to  Zanzibar.   The slave traders loaded their  slaves with ivory tusks and made them  carry them across country.    When they  got them here they sold both slaves and  ivory lo the Zanzibar berchants.   In such  cases many of the slaves   were   female,  and were used to supply the harems of  Arabia, Syria and 'Turkey, as well as of  Egypt and other Mohammedan couutricfl  schools, with European teachers, who  use colored assistants. This work is  just iu the beginning, but it promises  to grow. Fifty-two colored teachers are  already employed, and the schools have  several thousand pupils.  There arc but few \yl1itc3 in the interior of that colony, and almost none  excepting officials.   In Tabora there are-  eight foreigners, of whom six are inili-  ���������������������������tary  officers.    Iu Ujiji, on  Lake Tanganyika, there are only four white men.  Two are  civilians,  one  being a  doctor  and the other a trader.    At Usamburu,  at the head of the lake, there are four  Europeans, and at Bismarckburg, on the  =southernJ=.nd7Hhere=iare-only-_wo,=both  of whom are official*.   At Mwaiua, on  Lake   Victoria,   1   found   about  twenty  Europeans, equally divided between the  military and civil branches of the Government  Among the Washashi.  There is a queer town on Lake Victoria belonging to the Germans which I  have not mentioned in my previous letters. I called there during my tour  around-the lake. It is known as Shir-  ati, and it lies near the boundary of British'East'" Africa/ Tlie country about it  is beautifully rolling. The hills slope  gently up'from'."the lake, and upon them  stand hundreds of thatched huts, an Indian business section, and a fort belonging to the Germans. The people are like  the Kavirondo and a little. like the  Masai. 'They arc dark brown in color,  are. well formed, and of a good height.  ibove his fellows, who averaged, 1 judge,  about 5 feet fi.  '.Hie Washashi, like the Kavirondo, do  not wovry over their wardrobes. Those I  saw were almost naked.    Many of the  women had only a. string of beads about  them,  and some wore fringes of beads  two or three inches long hanging from  their waist belts.   The men were often  clad in a single goatskin, which      was  shifted so that it covered now tho back  and now the front of the person.     All  wore jewelry.

Jn order to decide this it occurred to Dr.  Xeubrouner that he might attach to his  pigeon a small photographic camera, allowing some distinct, views to be taken  during a flight of about twenty metres  a, second. .  After testing this camera from an  express train Dr. Xeubronner proceeded  to perforin his experiments on carrier  pigeons as photographers, and the first  pictures, which were two by two centimetres in size, were' considered .quite  satisfactory as preliminary results. As  the inventor soon realized the scope of  this ktea he ordered from a good mechanic a larger camera with a better  objective and films of four by four  centimetres, with a view to further improving those views. This camera having been fixed to the pigeon's breast  with a thin board of hard wood. was  kept in position on the back of the bird  by -means of straps. A small India rubber ball, allowing the air slowly to escape, would effect the instantaneous  opening of Hie shutter in due time. As  the air issue from the ball the latter  collapsed niore aud more, while disengaging the shutler',at regular intervals,  which were readily predetermined. Dr.  Xeubronner was thus able to secure  eight-consecutive views, but the capacity  of the apparatus- is likely to be" increased up to thirty views, so that, with  intervals of half .a. minute, a distance  of fifteen-kiloinctres could be. covered  nearly continuously. As a pigeon is  able to transport seventy-five grains to  a distance.ten times as great, no essential difficulties will-be -met" with" in  carrying this idea out in practice.  And this process would, seem to be  specially convenient for the taking of  photographic records from birdseye perspective, the German' War Department  soon became interested in the invention,  and Dr. _\ubronner was entrusted with  the taking of views from two kilometres  distance of the Tegel waterworks, which  are quite similar to a fortress. Being  unable to-u.se any local dovecote, Dr.  Neubronner decided on constructing a  transportable cote, for which the pigeons  obviously had to be trained. A dark  room arranged on., tho car'allowed the  pictures lo be developed immediately.  The pigeon during the ascent is able to  see to thirty-six kilometres distance.  On the occasion of a lecture recently  delivered at Crouborg, Dr. Neubronnor  exhibited a carrier oigoon equipped with  his apparatus. a.s well as some pigeon  pictures magnified on a screen. Special  =intere.-.t=-was=aroii3wl=in=soine=.viswa-  taken of the park in Friedriehshof Castle, accessible' to nobody, which strikingly .demonstrated the possibility of  using" carrier pigeons for obtaining pictures of beleaguered forts.  The invention aiul practical use of  dirigible airships, to fur from reducing  tho utility of' this ingenious process,  would seem to increase its possibilities.  Airships would iu fact allow a number  of carrier pigeons to be launched from  considerable" height behind the" front of  the enemy on the positions of the latter, and as these pigeons would take  their views from a moderate height the  balloon would not require, to be taken  to the various positions ucces.italod by  the photographic work, but could pw-  manently remain at considerable height,  thus being relatively safe against-the  projectiles'of tho enemy. Those two inventions would thus servo to supplement  one another.���������������������������Technical World Magazine.  (By W. P. Lemlcy, of Cappcau, Lemley  & Miller Co., Pittsburg).  Cobalt, the most unique aud richest  silver camu thus far discovered, lies in  the midst of the beautiful forest aud  lake country of Northern Ontario, Canada. It is 330 miles almost clue, north  from Toronto, and is' reached by the  Temiskaming ��������������������������� Northern Ontario railroad. It was the projection of the T. &  N. O. 11. P. through the wilderness by  the provincial government in 1903 that  lead to this mineralized district. To  La Rose, the blacksmith of the construction gaug, seems to belong the honor of  having discovered the first really valuable nugget of silver.  The development of the district has  disproved the early theory of geologists  and engineers that the silver deposits  in this camp were ou the surface only  and had leached through into the crevices of the rocks from an tipper strata  prior to tho glacial period. I^ow scientists agree that the silver .deposits were  forced up from below by enormous pressure and that they will continue in depth  from 500 to 1,000 feet or more throughout the district. Never before in the history of silver mining has ore been iu  quantities which -will run from 1,000 to  0,000 ounces silver to the ton. Mining  men were slow to believe such tales  until they went to Cobalt and saw for  themselves. The nearest approach to the  unique silver deposits of the Cobalt  camp that have" so far been known are  at Annaburg and Joachimsthal, Saxony.-  Thcse latter.mines are worked at a profit to a depth of about 9,000 feet.  ��������������������������� Cobalt iu its early days suffered a so:  vere handicap. Only a small percentage  of the owners or operators ef the mine*  iu the district were miners. Neither had  they any mining experience prior to  the discoveries in that immediate section. Many of tho men were real estate  dealers, lumbermen and agriculturists.  This fact is somewhat painfully evidenced yet in not a few of the mines, an  authority says that a good mine will  outlive a bad management. The original  Cobalt camp has survived a succession of  inexperienced ,and incompetent management until, it to-day occupies its place  of true greatness in production and dividends,, by virtue of merit. This is all in  a period, of practically four years. Today, the inefficient management and  inexperienced men of the original' camp  have been replaced by mining managers  of- wide experience, miners with thorough training together with modern! ma-  chiucry. This rapid transformation ��������������������������� and  the results., attained thereby have produced results forever silencing the earlv  criticism of the camp.  Some idea of the camp's mineral worth  can be gained when" one considers the  fact that the Cobalt mines have paid  more dividends during the past 12  months than the mines of Butte, Mont.,  although the camp of Butte ships almost as many tons of ore in a single  day as Cobalt ships in one. year. Butte  is the best and most completely equipped  mining camp "in the world. Millions have  been expended to make it so. It has been  producing 30 years. The city of Butte,  with its population of 00,000, depends  on its mines for support. The wonderful  investment, value of . these mines cannot be denied, and yet Cobalt, scarcely  more than four years old,-already outstrips it in profit making. When the  Cobalt, mines have been fully developed,  what will its productiveness "be then? It  is estimated that oyer 70 per cent, of  the shipments to date comprises ore .taken out in sinking shafts and from drifts  .preparatory_to .real-mining  UNFAIR TREATMENT....   ....

It is not unreasonable that other and  possibly greater camps will be found.

It  seems to be  the prevailing  idea, amongst a certain class  of farmers,   at least,   that  every man is looking to "do"  him.    And, candidly, we do  not wonder that in this section  of  Canada  this  idea  should predominate.    Here  the farmer and fruit grower  has been stung at every turn,  and, as a writer in the Toronto Telegram puts it, "the  B.   C.   fruit-growers  have  some grounds for complaint.  The valleys can produce large  quantities of high-class fruit  for which the market is obviously the great non-fruitgrowing prairie.     But  between these two���������������������������producer  and  consumer ��������������������������� ranges  of  high mountains are not the  only barrier that interpose.  The middleman, the retailer  and the railroad must have a  slice, and when they have  finished, the grower���������������������������if he is  a good boy���������������������������may have what  is left.   Regarding the commission houses and merchants, hundreds of miles from  the point of shipment, it is  quite easy to see how completely the grower is at their  mercy.     Dishonest  dealers  can make  easy  money by  misrepresenting the state of  perishable    consignments���������������������������  say that half the fruit was  bad, etc., and in their largeness of heart remit the grower what they like, when they  like, for the balance of the  'damaged' goods."  These are only some of the  difficulties which confront  the farmer and fruitgrower.  To combat these obstacles,  farmers' exchanges have  been organized, but, not having sufficient capital to han-  dle^the^business,__and__;he  farmers not having either  confidence in or loyalty for  their own institutions,  have been placed at the  mercy of the railroad, express company and dishonest  commission men, with the  result that our farmers are  not a whit better organized  than they were 20 years ago.  Under the circumstances  it is not strange that the  farmer should be taken advantage of by the greedy  and dishonest. Various remedies have been suggested  for this unsatisfactory state  of things, but, as the Orchard City Record (Kelowna)  tritely puts it, "little can be  done without the earnest and  energetic co-operation of the  farmer himself. It is no use  him standing aloof and waiting for others to look to his  interests. He must get his  hand to the rope and plant  his feet firm if his side is going to win."  It was the hope of all that  in the Central Exchange  system of co-operation the  farmers would evolve a perfect method of handling the  Barb Wire,  $4.25  Nails, $4.25, Poultry Netting,^  Farm Machinery  Having taken the agency of E.

It is the most complete stock ever  shown in Enderby.  Fulton's Hardware, Tin and Plumbing Works  CLIFF STREET ENDERBY, B. C  produce, but this, too, has  failed. In the first place the  farmers had the Central prepare to handle $400,000 in  produce, and made good with  produce to the value of only  $100,000. When it came to  making final settlement, it  was discovered that there  was a deficit. Members at  once came forward and collectively offered their personal bond in the sum of  $4,000. This would have  been sufficient to tide the  business over and pay all  members for their proauce,  and the organization could  have been kept intact so as to  handle the next year's business. By profiting by last  season's mistakes, the business should have put the organization safely upon its  feet.  The plan was a good one,  but the very men it was  intended to benefit were  the first to knock it. The  final result: President Johnstone of the Central organization, when he found how  utterly unappreciative the  members were and how unwilling the government was  to assist the co-operative  movement, did not reel jus-  -tified4n-making���������������������������a==further-  fight, and he has returned to  the members who were prepared to keep their organization afloat the personal bond  given bv them, and has  placed tlie organization in  liquidation. Thus ends one  of the sincerest attempts  of earnest men to put in operation a co-operative machine to better the conditions  of the growers. A sidelight on the whole proposition will be found in another  column from the Revelstoke  Observer, the main facts of  which have been known to  many for some weeks.  Big Okanagan Shoot.  Arrangements are now being  made for the annual shoot of the  Okanagan Rifle Association which  will take place in this city on the  2nd, 3rd and 4th of June.

It was at'the 'old. home place,  when ail the days were'full of play  and -the nights moonlight and gay.  Jerry. .O'Flinn..was"his name, and he  liyed up to it. .��������������������������� Jte>rry was a small lad  with a, big , bump .of humor and. a  brogue broad, enough to run a four;  track flyer over. But he was all boy.  One boy. ������������������������������������������������������   ',        . -   . '       :  _ While tossing about in the woods  one', day, Jerry tumbled upon a bee  tree, ,and 'that evening- he; gathered  Ide' gang", about .him to lay before  them his plans, to take the tree." It  was' a'two-br-iafee-year-old, he;'said,  and Jerry knew. We expected big  spoils of honey,  -"  ������������������    "  ."Our implements,' of-" war were  gathered- together.. They consisted of  a tomato can .full of sulphur, a small  pie tin, a big dish-pan, and an ax.  When the dark of evening came, we  stole away into the woods, led by the  inimitable Jerry, and were soon lost'  in the bush.  We went direct to the enemy's  camp, and as was the custom in those  days, and I presume the custom has  not changed, we - banged upon the  butt of the tree until the bees were  aroused and we could tell by holding  an ear to the tree just" about where  the bees were located. Then "Jerry  climbed up to where "the nest was,  and chopped a hole into the trunk  perhaps a foot above the bank of  honey.  The bees didn't enjoy it, of course,  but they were not at all dangerous in  the candle-light. ;  =When=-the-hole-=was=large-enough,:  the sulphur was spread out in the  pie-plate and handed up to Jerry.  He set a match,to it and placed it in  the hole over the bees. It was left  there for about ten minutes, until the  bees were well spifflicated, or words  to that effect. All this time we were  huddled at the base of the tree holding the, dish-pan so as to catch the  honey, and discussing how much  each was to have.,  When the smoking was over, Jerry  drew the sulphur tin out and placed  it on a limb behind him. Then he  began to spade out the honey with  shingle paddles hastily made. This  he-dropped into~"the dish-pan, and we  all got as close to it as possible;  every boy wanting to hold the pan.  When Jerry took out the pie tin of  burning sulphur he placed it on a  convenient limb, as before stated,  but he was not particular to see that  the sulphur was burned out.  Gleefully he dug out the honey.  Then a bee inside the tree, that  was not so dead at the sharp end as  in the head, touched Jerry on the  back of the hand. With a whopp  of war and of pain he. sat down in  the pie-tin of burning sulphur. So  interested was he in the bee sting  that he did not notice any unusual  sensation in any other quarter. But  when the sulphur burned through  the seat of his trousers all was Kour-  patkin with Jerry. He imagined  flank movements and all the other  things tending to hurry-up matters,  and without stopping to enquire into  the cause  retreated qdown  the  tree  a-, in .a bunch. . At the first- whoop  the boys,.under the dish-pan dropped  it, and "stepped back, and when Jerry  hit the ground,he wasiritq the honey  with  both, feet. "'It~ was  a  psychoid  logical moment���������������������������for the bees.  : The burning sulphur stuck to him,'  and so did the honey.- He was honeyed fore, and sulphured aft. But how  he did run!"- And with every jump  he yelled the louder. - "-'."���������������������������  '' We didn't know, what'had happened Jerry, but concluded there was  enough behind his. yells to 'cause  alarm, 'and v/e scooted,���������������������������after, him.  Perhaps if Jerry hadn't ruif into a  wire fence he would have been going  yet. -As" it-was'we .got just enough  honey out of it to apply as a poultice  on Jerry. .'- - ��������������������������� - - ;_ v - > -:  , All of .which goes to. show that it  isn_t_safe to put behind you-your  meanness while, trying;'to "get your  neighbor's honey.' "."'-'"  .'.You'll sit down in it, sure.   ,-  THE NOBLEST 'ATTRIBUTE.  One of the noblest of human attributes is the fine generosity of soul  that causes one to truly rejoice in  the success of. others. To be able to  say "I am glad" when good fortune  is vouchsafed to others, instead of to  ourselves, is the highest form of generosity.  Two girls who were members of  the same class at college competed  for a certain prize which would enable the winner to remain another  year at the college.  When Helen won the prize" she  said: "0^1, I'm almost-sorry I won  it, for Lucy will feel so badly about  it." '      "'":' ���������������������������'  .  But at that moment Lucy burst  into Helen's room with shining eyes  and radiant face that left no doubt of.  her * sincerity,. -and., said: ���������������������������. }"Oh,  Helen! Helen! I'm so glad you won  the prize!" , v _  "But,   aren't    you '<  disappointed,  too?" *  ���������������������������"'.'  s- /''Oh, yes some," of course,' but not  enough to keep me from being glad  in my very heart that'you wonit."/' -'���������������������������  And the very, words;were proof of  the most beautiful generosity of soul.

Central Exchange  The Revelstoke Observer  savs: ' 'James Johnston, of  Nelson, one of the most practical fruit growers of Kootenay, long since conceived the  idea that the only .way in  which the fruit crop of B. C.  could be successfully marketed was through a central  co-operative exchange, and  the result was the organization of the Central fruit exchange with headquarters at  Revelstoke. The exchange  was well organized, but the  mistake was made of starting v/ithout any actual paid-  up capital, the commissions  being evidently depended on  to make it pay its way. The  financial end of it was the  weak end from the start,  and an effort was made to  remedy that when it was too  late, by calling up the capital  stock subscribed by the various branches. Owing probably to some f rictionthat had  been engendered among  growers who had not received their returns, some of  the branches refused to pay  up the shares subscribed for,  and the management of the  exchange felt that if some  wanted to shirk the burden  they could not well ask the  willing horse to shoulder it.  "The co-operative idea of  the Central exchange  brought it into antagonism  with private enterprise which  essayed to market the fruit  crop, and when the exchange  got into low water on ac  count,of the refusal of some  subscribers to pay their capital stock, these ��������������������������� concerns  were, only too ready to step  in and kill it, feeling that if  they could knock the co-operative idea on the head they  would so much improve the  chances of their own big profits. Well, they succeeded,  and the result is not much  credit to the Coldstream  company or those connected  with it.  ... When the Central exchange called the convention  of fruit growers and representatives of transportation  companies at Revelstoke, R.  M. Palmer, deputy minister  of agriculture, immediately  issued a circular which had  the effect of calling a convention for the same purpose  at Victoria. He gave the  transportation officials the  impression that the Revelstoke meeting was abandoned for Victoria. This was  apparently done to knock the  movement originated by the  Central exchange and had  the effect of heading off some  of the officials and ��������������������������� many of  the growers who intended  coming here; Then, Mr.  Palmer is, or was, a director  of the Coldstream concern,  and as such cannot get away  from  his  responsibility   in  for  Hatch-  ing.

The Central exchange had arranged  for all the funds neeessary  to meet its liabilities, and  had decided to ask some  help from the government in  connection with the splendid  service it had outlined for the  coming season in the co-operative interest of the fruit,  growers of the province.  One of the first things the  Palmer, convention did, no  doubt by pre-arrangement,  was to pass a resolution op-,  posing a grant by the gov-:  ernment to the Central exchange.  ''"We are of opinion the  fruit growers who are in  favor of co-operative marketing of their fruit through a  central exchange should not  lie down and be trampled on  by Mr. Palmer or any minions, of , the Coldstream concern. . ..We think it is up  to the minister of agriculture  to hold a searching investigation and put a stop once  for all to his department being used as it was to the  detriment of the Central exchange."  ���������������������������Vernon Ambitious.  ls~cohced_S������������������tTh!^  city of homes.

"It's only me,' 'replied Mrs. Simpson. "Can*ye spare a. meemityr" and,  in response. Miss Maepherson "sklif-  i'ed" in buuchlcd feet to answer the  summons.  "J wis some fcart it micht be a  stranger," said she. "an' a'm nae  dressed yet."  "Nor me ithar." paid Mrs. Simpson;  "i iist cam' over to see if- ye could  fasten me into ma. bodice.'"      r  "Certainly," said Miss Maepherson.  "Come awa' ben.

The evening had been one of bustling preparation in the Row, and already there were indications of a  crowd gathering' at tho pend of St.  Kutherine's Hall." It was wearing on  tu eight o'clock.   .  "Hist, ye," said Mrs. Simpson. "Wc  hinna verra lang, an' 1 maun be owcr  to the ha' afore the t'ouk begins till  arrive."  "Yc shouldna ha'o gotten a dress  that fastened up the back." remarked  Miss Maepherson. "for a'm that, excited 1 canna'fasten the buttons avn.  There hoo, stand still, canna yc?"

Aw a' yc  rin," said Miss Maepherson, and Mrs.  Simpson required no second bidding.  She cant her white shawl over her  head, crossed tho landing, turned the  . key in tbe door, pushed it under the  mat, and with seeming composure  stepped downstairs. She went out of  the close and crossed the Ko\. with  a hundred eyes marking her progress.  The crowd at the hall door heralded her coining with a cheer, and she  ran the gauntlet with a self-consciousness that, found expression in the advice. "Rin awa' hame and hale o'  ve, an' nao' bother fouk.'  Hut. the crowd remained, and each  of the guests in turn camo in. for  share in free, und painted'criticism.

The heartiest reception was accorded  tho bride, who was met with the suggestion, "Keep up yer he'rl, Lizzie,  it'll sv.ne be ower,' a suggestion lost  in the goneral chorus of admiring  comment.

"They stay a faw days in a place,  build new camps and make new trails  and find new game. They live on meat  they kill and fish they catch with nets.  When good luck comes with meat or fish  in plenty they dry and smoke a large  quantity and put it in log pens where  nothing can get to it. This pen is called  a cache.

The Bride of To-day is Willing to Buy  Frocks Soon After She is Married  and Even to Wear a Travelling  Gown That Has Been Used���������������������������Buying Abroad.  (N. Y. Sun.)  "In all the talk about hard times and  tlie extravagance of women's clothes 1  have heard nothing at all about the falling off in bridal orders," said a dressmaker long in business "At one time we  all used to get q'tite .xcited when a  customer came in wrJi>- daughter to  order a wedding trousseau, even though  some of the force knew that before the  order was finished they might' have to1  work nights.  ''After one or two interviews with  mother and daughter I niyself, I, remember, on one ��������������������������� or two occasions used to  wake up in the night and begin to figure  out possible profits and plan how I  should invest them; and it never happened that the profits were less than I  expected or the trousseau-smaller than  we at first planned. On the contrary, as  the time for the wedding grew near one  extra garment after another would be  tacked on until, as we all expected, the  hist few days found us pushing all othor  orders one * side to put the finishing  stitches in fifteen or twenty gowns and  wraps, to say nothing of negligees and  the wedding dress "itself.  "After the-lost try on of the wedding  dress, on which occasion nearly. every  employee in the house would coine to  the fitting room door to get a peep at it  and the bride, when the shining satin  was packed away in billows of tissue paper and carried home by two of my  trustiest messengers, we actually felt  lonely until the next wedding order  came in. Occasionally we had two wedding orders on the carpet at tlie same  time, in which case the excitement was  more intense. Every, leading dressmaker  at the time I speak of had this experience. .     - -  'it was not so common for the moth-  erf, of girls now in society to run over  to Europe as soon as they got engaged  and buy part of their trousseau as it is  now, and none that I met ever dreamed  of waiting until she was married to buy  this, that or the other garment. It  was about eight or ten years ago that  the trousseau Iv.d reached its greatest  point of luxury from a dressmaker .  point of view. Even then, however,  there was n. great falling off to .be sure  in" the quantity of bed and table linen  and underwear included in a "rich New  York girl's bridal outfit,'but that didn\  effect the dressmakers profits at-all.  Both in quality and quantity evening  gowns, street and calling costumes,  wraps and negligees iind fancy neckwear  were 'at their nio..t extravagant point,  and it was.almost never that the bridal  gown was bought on the other side.  "Here is one o._cr\just an it iv. put  down in my November ledger of lft_9:  Six dinner dresses.  Four evening dresses cut dancin"  length. ������������������  Four afternoon reception oostuaics  cut demi-tniin, high in the bodice.  Four calling costumes, three of them  matched with fancy coal..  Three  street costumes.  Four tea' gowns���������������������������cut with a long  train. ...... ������������������  Three negligees���������������������������long.  Three negligees���������������������������short  .   Two long evening wraps.,  Two long afternoon wraps.  "The evening wraps were of white and  _ol d=brocade,-=whi te^chi f f on=and^ya.r<ls  hml yards of fine Viennese la*.., ami of  pink satin and velvet brocade combined  with quantities of creamy lace. 1 have  forgotten exactly what kind. Tlie afternoon wraps wei. made of dark velvet,  combined in one case with fur, embroidered white satin and lace, in Uie other  with fine cloth of a lighter shade elaborately embroidered and braided. The  street costumes each had iU coat. The  dinner gowns_wcre of the richest sal his  and velvets "offset "with "superb" laces;  and the bull gowns, although made of  tulle, chiffon and other thin goods, included also quantities of handsome Inces  and  embroideries.  "Of the reception gowns there were  two lo be worn at the two first receptions given by the bride, and these were  handsomer titan the others. One, I re-  mr-inher. wa.s almost entirely of white  Irish point '.ace. and another was of pale  blua cu-pe de chine almost coveied with  hand embroidery. This order was not  eveeptional then or for two or three  yea is Ir.ier.  ''After that them was a decline not in  quality but In quantity, the lust two  veai-s showing a sharp cutting down in  the number of gowns and wraps ordered  in New York by even tho wealthiest  brides. Tn some cases economy has nothing at all to do with it. Tt is no longer  tho fashion to have n.orc gowns than  are needed tn take the. bride over one  season. Tn the case I have quoted the  bride planned reception, dinner and even-  ing gowns enough to last from ���������������������������Decomb.-r.  'when sin was married, up to. the"'next  December,- 'and negligees sufficient to:  last even longer.'  "Drides of to-day have stopped doing  that. I am sorry to say. It is no longer  considered bad form to buy new clothes  three months after the* wedding and  charge.them ��������������������������� up. to the rhusband.'��������������������������� ��������������������������� A' few  weeks aj;o the mother of a bride who is  rich in her own right told me when ordering the .wedding'gown; 'Make it so  that it can be used afterward for'a dinner gown,' which 19 now quite a common  thing to do.  "Instead of biylng away h?r bridal  dress the modern bride-wears it. slightly  changed, at her first reception or at suc  ceeding receptions given in her honor, or  else'has' the corsage cut low so'th/t, it  can do duty in ihe evening.  "The bride 1 refer to, who expecr. to  go South after,her marriage next wo'jk,1  is ordering mostly summer dres.-os. and  not many of them at that; for in April  she will sail for Europe to spend six  monlhs in travel and naturally will buy  what she heeds in Europe, returning  probably with a lot of new things for  next winter, So far she has ordered  from me her wedding gown,-two dinner  dresses, one handsome street costume.  five dainty costumes, made mostly of  lace, lawn and chiffon; two negligees, a  light evening wrap and one long carriage  wrap.  "There is no attempt to economize in  the cost of these things; that is not the  point. The modern New York bride gets  on the whole far handsomer clothes than  her mother or her grandmother dreamed  of" buying, and pays twice as much for  them; but she is careful as to quantity,  and that is bad for the dressmakers and  for the dealers in fine lingerie. Where  former generations of brides boug.it undergarments by-the dozen at least, this  generation buys them by the half dozen.  The lingerie," however, of the modern  bride is a marvel in the way of workmanship and fine lace, arid naturally she  doesn't care to lay in "a supply of such  expensive things to store them up to  get old-fashioned. When , it comes to  costumes she feels the same way, probably.  "All the same now there i9 a good deal"  less sentiment about the trousseau than  there was formerly, brides of to-day lining quite willing even to wear a traveling  dress which has done duty several weeks  before the wedding. Sometimes they prefer to do this, in fact.' Catch a.bride of.'  twonty years a go doing anything of the  sort. If there was one thing more than  another about which she was fussy it  was her traveling dres9._ Now it is her  dinner dresses that she cares most about."  and I must say that the modern trousseau contains far more dinner gowns  than it used to, whether bought here or  on the other side. ',        ,  ''The popularity of European honeymoons is another reason for the cut in  size of some of'the trousseaus. So' soon ,;  as a bride-elect tells nib: 'I-am going  abroad directly we arc married,' I know  what to expect���������������������������that she will wait until  she comes back before ordering her most  expensive gowns, and th:.t'a���������������������������few of these  at least wih bebought in Paris, London  or Vienna.' '      .  '���������������������������The cost of the 1S90 trousseau I mentioned was $6,500.   The cost of the trims-'  seauXam providing for the bride who  starts South after her wedding is ?3,500.  Relatively tlie drop in  the number of  garments, ^aside   from  lingerie, ��������������������������� hosiery -  and such things, contained in the modern  trousseau of wealthy New York girls is  oOtper cent., and the*drop'in.tho relative'1  cost of the New York trousseau of. ten  ���������������������������  years ago and of to-day, is'40 per cent."  , A BAD MARKSMAN.

To the people of Vernon and vicinity the item of first interest  was that dealing with the raising  of a fund to provide for a proper  exhibition of our fruit products.  As was stated in the report of  the Board of Trade a couple of  issues ago, it -was estimated  that it would cost for the services  of a good man to select the trees  from which the fruit was to be  taken and to look after them  from the bud to the matured  fruit at least $100 a month over  a period of probably eight  months. In addition to the collection and packing of the fruit  there was its proper exhibition,  and when all these expenses  were added up it was  found that a fund of at least  $2,000 would be necessary. The  matter was exhaustively debated,  and when every point had been  considered it was resolved to  raise this sum of money. It  wasn't a question "of. stating we  will try to raise this amount of  money, but as one member put  it; "We will raise $2,000.-Vernon Okanagan.  Woman Missionaries.  Make Good.
