C.  Pa says: "Under the priest's direction, our Indians are  catching civilization about as successfully as a celluloid dog  chasing an asbestos cat through hell."  <_:  _**_-X_  FROM ONE MAN'S POINT OF VIEWi  _-*V^*v_  >������������������*v>V_  THE time has come when we of British  Columbia should do something to arrest  the blight thrust upon us by a good law in-  iquitously^enforcedr^We speak-oHhe-law  governing our Indian reserves. We Canadians are a missionary people; we send  hundreds of thousands of dollars annually  abroad to enlighten peoples no more worthy and not more in need of light than our  red brothers at our very doors. In British  Columbia we have an Indian population of  25,000. These people are allotted reserve  lands, thousands of acres more than they  can possibly make use of. Upon these vast  untifled areas we have pushed the Indians  and there we leave them to rot, and be  preyed upon by the charlatan of the black  cloth, and the white devils whose honor  has pinched to a knife-blade seam of  Siwash yellow.  The laws framed to govern these reserves  are intended to elevate and educate the  Indian and make him a useful citizen,  whereas, the law that actually rules the  Indians is a relic of the Dark Age and a  curse on the people it holds in bondage.  The Indians have been and are shamefully  neglected by the Dominion Government.  The law prescribes that on each reserve an  Indian scnool may be established, and appropriates $400 a- year towards the maintenance of each such school. But in effect  the law has turned the Indians holus-bolus  over to the mercenary care of the Catholic  priest, and reservation schools have been  and are out of the question, for the reason  that a teacher of anv other denomination  is not permitted on the reservation.  If the present system were accomplishing any good���������������������������if the Indian  were being  made better���������������������������if the sway of the priest were  proving in any way beneficent���������������������������ho;obj6e-  tioh could be raised to even this one-sided  policy of the Government in dealing with  the Indians. But what do we find? We  find the Indians have been petitioning for  reservation schools for years, and the priest  says no. When Mr. MacDonald, the Government agent representing the Indian Department, visited Enderby some months  ago, the Enderby reservation chief appeared before him and repeated the petition for a school. Nothing has come of it;  The Indians can do nothing. They have  no ambition to earn money, for the moment they do and it is found out a "court"  is^heldrfines4mposed=and^the-money-goes-  to the priest. It was not so long ago when  the priest tried to depose Chief Edward because he refused to hold a "court" as  directed. . Another chief was set up. In  the name of the priest the new chief called  this one and that one of the tribe before  him and imposed fines to suit the pockets  of those summoned. In this way $300  went from the pockets of the tribe to the  priest, the Indians say. The Indian Agent  refused to recognize the pious-purpose  chief, and the local police court was appealed to by two of the men fined, and the  action of the priest's chief nullified so far  as they were concerned. But the $300  taken from others of the tribe never came  back.  We do not know, of course, but it does  .seem as if the sole purpose of the priest is  to hold the Indians in a position so as to  enable him to find a way to their pockets  to take therefrom the little they earn.  On the Enderby reserve this thing has been  going on for years, if the Indians are to be  believed. And they have got in return  from the priest absolutely nothing. Their  requests for educational facilities on the  reserve have been repeatedly ignored, and  they stand to-day in the same condition of  darkness that they were in, as a tribe, 40  years ago, a standing disgrace to- our  British law of justice and a mockery in the  face of our boasted civilization.  There must be a reason for this, and it  is the business of the community and province to find it out, and discover a remedy.  what well-balanced industry will  do in a single season. They have  marketed very profitable crops of.  celery and tomatoes, . and.- are  planing bigger things4-'for next  year. The Enderby Trading Co.  handled some of the finest tomatoes every grown in the valley,  this week, and they came from '���������������������������  the Ahier boys. _.  Messrs. Heggie, Moore and  Harvey, spent a few days oh a  fishing trip to Mabel ��������������������������� Lake last  week. They brought home a big  catch of speckled trout which  were distributed among their  friends, and are enthusiastic over  the marvelous beauty of the lake  scenery as well as the magnifi-_>'  cent- opportunities, offered to.  hunting, fishing and pleasure  parties. The wagon road to the"  lake makes it possible' tcf make  the trip with ease in four hours'  Farmers  interested  in  stock  raising missed a very instructive  lecture on the subject by, not attending the Spallumcheen -Farmers' Institute meeting Tuesday .  afternoon and evening.. The usual bakers' dozen were present  to hear Mr; Brice Wright, bf Alberta.    Mr.   Wright  showed a  remarkable     familiarity . with  every phase of the question, and  the information  he imparted to  the few stockmen  present was  no doubt worth many times the  cost of a year's membership in  the  Institute.      The    question  arises as one attends these Institute lectures and.sees the faithful few in attendance to hear the  experts  talk,   do our   farmers  kno_w_alLthereJs^to^be=kno-wn=on=-  the questions discussed?   If they  do what is the use of the Government sending high-class men  here and there  to talk to audiences composed largely of empty  chairs?  If you do not know the convenience of a typewriter in the  home, you  should not rstand on  ceremony, but make enquiries at  once.   There are many ways in  which a bright boy or girl may  earn the money to pay for a machine and at the same time they  will be getting valuable business  training, and can write your own  business letters besides.   We believe a standard typewriter should  be in every home, for the reason "  that it affords the boys and girls  an easy  way  to become proficient with the machine and familiar  with  business methods.

Robert Waddell, Enderby TO FIGHT WHITE PLAGUE  STERN    MEASURES   WILL   BE  ADOPTED IN ENGLAND.  Will Strike at One of ilie Sources  by (lie Slaughter of In foe ted  .Uilch Cows.  Within  less    than    a generation  tuberculosis���������������������������that   terrible  scourge  which claims more victims every  year than a whole _uropean war-  will bo a tiling of the. pasi in Kng-  laud. The government has taken  up a campaign against il which  promises to make it before long almost as rare as smallpox or typhus  fever, writes a London correspondent.  ���������������������������The English Saint George who  has sallied forth to slay this modern dragon is Hon. John Burns,  the former dock laborer who is now  a cabinet minister and a friend of  tlie King. He is seeking fresh legislation, but hc is not waiting for  that.c He has just foreshadowed a  policy by which he proposes with  the weapons ready to his hand to  remove thc most dangerous sources  ci infection���������������������������the pauper consumptive���������������������������from the possibility of being  a source of contagion to his family  and neighbors. Public opinion is  not ripe yet in England for the compulsory, isolation of consumptives in  the way that persons who are stricken with smallpox are now dealt  with, although medical opinion is  practically unanimous that such  treatment is necessary before the  disease can be wholly eradicated,  but John Burns, the practical man,  has devised a means by which this  end can be achieved without outraging that false, but strong sentiment  which regards isolation as an invasion of the liberty of the individual. He is now preparing to  put in practice,   by  ADMINISTRATIVE ORDER,  a rule by which 00 per cent, of the  poor consumptives of the country  will be compelled to enter the pub-'  lie infirmaries, where, of course,  they will be effectively isolated, will  have every possible chance of re-  ��������������������������� covery, and will no longer be a  danger to their fellows.  Bums's plan is based on the fact  that 90 per cent, of the poor consumptives in England, at one stage  or another of    their    disease,  are  compelled  to  seek  what is known  as out relief from thc poor law authorities.    Out relief consists of a  weekly dole of money from thc public funds which is given to persons  who  are  not    absolutely destitute  and who arc desirous of keeping out  oi  the  workhouse.      It is good  in  most cases because it enabled many  a  family   to  tide    over   bad  times  without   the    radical") breaking up  which must always result from selling up lhe few sticks of furniture  ihey possess and entering the poor-  house.    It also saves many deserving persons    from the    workhouse  stigma.  But in the case of consumptives  i^ enables the patient to make himself a center of infection. Burns's  first step, therefore, has been to  ___tie_-a n -Qrd c r_ _as_pv.csid en t_oL.th e_.,'  ac the opening of the tuberculosis  exhibition in the east end of Lon-.  don.u  "I trust soon,"he said, "to follow up thc notification' of tuberculosis order by a circular to poor  law authorities, on the conditions  under whi-.'h poor law relief should  be given '���������������������������> outdoor consumptive  paupers, -u,,gesting methods of  self-treat!:'-:it, removal perhaps, to  another place, _ ^   ADVIL'. AND GUI DANCE,  and extended help in the direction  of "cure and prevention."  In  the  field    ol  ,!.  active iu t  plague.  legislation  also  ie fight against  has just  Jle  m-  in   Parliament -a  bill   to  l.iurns is  the whiw  _roducx!  'safeguard and purify the milk supply of the country, German and  American researches have proved  beyond doubt lhat one of the chief  sources of tuberculosis in children  is milk from diseased cows, and  it has been ascertained that nearly  a third of the milch cows in England are suffering from tuberculosis in oue form or another. Burns',  bill provides for the slaughter of  these diseased cows and thc payment of compensation lo the farmers on a scalo graded in proportion to the degree to which the disease has advanced. Thus a badly  diseased cow will not be paid for  at all. but in the case of one in  which the disease is only in its  early stages the farmer will receive  nearly her full value. Heavy penalties are provided for farmers and  dealers who sell milk from cows suffering from tuberculosis unless it  is effieciently sterilized, or, better  still, pasteurized. Thc bill has the  approval of all parties in the House  of Commons and the only thing  that can prevent its passage is the.  pressure of business in relation to  new taxation. If it does not pass  this year it is certain to become law  at the next season of. Parliament,  whatever party is in power,  OVATION TO THE KING  WHEN HIS MAJESTY WON THE  DEHBY.  Nothing Like II Ever Seen or ITcard  Before Any Time or at  Any Place.  In  many  present  at  countries  1  have  been  many   exciting  scenes,  but never, .1 think, have I witnessed and listened to such an outburst  ( f enthusiasm as that which marked the King's victory, and whicli  will make thc Derby of 1000 forever memorable in the annals of  thc famous race, says a writer in  thc  Loudon  Daily  Mail.  After we had partly recovered I  was talking in the paddock with'an  eld nobleman who has seen evevy  Derby since 1SS1 (as well as a good  many before that) and a young girl  who had just seen it. for the first  time. "Ah, my dear,"- he said  kindly, "you're lucky in your first  Derby.    You'll  never  see  another  FORTUNE I _t _0M SANDWICHES.  Ifaiu, Corned    Beef. Cheese, Sardine, Beef and Tongue.  There has just died at the age of  sixty-seven a man of the name of  Angelo  Basso,  of New  York,   who  amassed  a  fortune    amounting  to  $500,000 by selling sandwiches. Basso  was    credited  with    giving  the  "best, ' biggest,   and  most  appetizing'"'' sandwich in town for the modest sum of a    nickel'   '(five cents).  Everyone knew Basso's sandwiches,  and  though  hc had only one shop  it  was  crowded  sixteen  hours out  :of the  twenty-four  by  messenger  boys; work-girls, business men, and  others who had come a considerable  distance  to  secure  "Ba.<  local government board  tuberculosis a notifiable disease.

The immediate result will  be that thc poor consumptive will  Le compelled to seek admission to  the workhouse and once there he  will be removed to an up-to-date  sanatorium where he will receive  the best possible treatment. .'In this  eminently practical way has John  Burns solved the problem of overcoming a public prejudice which is  dangerous to the public health.  No public announcement of this  'plan has been made and as a matter of fact no public announcement  i.s intended.    It is not desired that  there  shall  be  a  public discussion  of the new policy in England,  because there are sure_ to be a number of people who will denounce it  as an example of the growth in this  country of continental bureaucracy.  The nearest that Burns has come to  making public  what hc  intends  to  do.    was    announcement    that    he  Tt_Kl". a few days ago in a speech  what became  known as a "Basso."  Years ago,  among thc many attractions    held    at    the    Madison  Square  Garden    was    a   six-days5  walking race.    This  race  went  on  hour  after    hour    from   midnight  Saturday to midnight Friday, many  people  staying   there.     The  entire  week.    On such occasions as these  the Angelo Basso sandwich,  which  the  wise old Italian    put on sale  there, came to be looked upon as a  standard  article.    No  one  wanted  any  sandwich  but Basso's,   and  it  was quite  useless  for  anyone else  _<-_-{-r j���������������������������a-nd-b r e a-Jm n to^t-h e^o 1 <H _ a ..-s=  trade;    it    was    an    impossibility  which  was recognized.    One Basso  sandwich was a meal for an ordinary man, and two would satisfy six  children.    These  sandwiches   were  made of good    material    and  very  varied���������������������������ham,   corned  beef,   cheese,  sardine,  beef, tongue, etc.���������������������������and it  was Basso's boast that never during, thc .forty   .years he  had,been  making sandwiches had hc been accused of selling even a "questionable" one.  Although the profit of these sandwiches was very small���������������������������considering  like it."    That was thc thought in  everybody's  mind.  The most astonishing thing about  !the scene was the suddenness of  it. One moment there was silence,  tense, , dramatic silence, and the  next moment thc air "was rent by  the shouting of innumerable throats  and the course was black with people, avcry single one of whom was  waving his hat and jumping up  and down, yelling at the top of his  voice.  Thc police were taken completely  by surprise. The crowd surged  round the unsaddling enclosure  rails before any attempt could be  made t-o control them. There was  very little roughness and no rowdyism, but a vast concourse of people is always difficult to manage..  Thc police had a hard task set them  by the suddenness of thc onrush.  They did their wcrk forb.earingly  and  well.  The finish was such a near thing  that in the grandstand enclosure  where I was at the moment, there  was just a flicker of doubt after the  horses got past the post as to whether Minoru had.kept his lead.  Louviers had come along with such  a gallant rush as they flashed up  the straight that there was very  little between them. They were  almost neck and neck. Instantly,  however, No. 1 was hoisted, and  we knew that for the first time, in  its history a Sovereign of England  was thc winner of thc "classic  race."  LEADING IN MINORU.  there anything like the same excitement as this.  "GOD SAVE THE KING."  ' Once more the volume of sound  leapt up, as a bonfire blazes when  fresh fuel is cast upon it. This  was after the formality of weighing had been completed. The top  hats on the stands were waved as  enthusiastically as the "'bowlers" of  thc masses from the Hill. "God  Save the King" was started and  taken up with right good will, The  Queen brushed away a tear of emotion. The Princess of Wales positively beamed  with pleasure.  As he made his way up the stairs  again his Majesty shook hands with  numbers of his friends, eager to  ���������������������������congratulate him. Then he vanished from view, and with a great  sigh of content the enormous assemblage began to think cither  about starting homewards or about  thc next race.

CLOTHES OF FISH SKLNS.  The skin of a fish does not suggest itself as a suitable material  for the making of clothes, yet it is  used for this purpose by a tribe of  Tartars in Manchuria. They inhabit the banks of thc Peon River,  and live by fishing and hunting,  During the last hundred years they  have become nearly extinct owing  to the invasion of their domain by  pgricultural Chinese. They are  known as fish-skin Tartars. The  fish they use is the tamara, a  species of salmon  skin of this fish  possess wonderful  pcrtics.  There was an immediate rush to  get out. I slipped out among the  first and ran along to the unsaddling enclosure. The King was still  in his box bowing, hat in hand.  Then he bent towards thc Queen,  spoke a word to her, turned, and  went out. The Queen was in ecstasies, receiving congratulations  with delight, pointing to the crowd,  explaining how cleverly thc race  had been ridden.  A few moments passed, and then  the King appeared, smiling and  _ e wi n gt=o n=t-h e^s teps=l e ad-i n g^d o wn  from his box to the enclosure.

He advises us to eat for breakfast bacon, or bacon and eggs, baked or toasted bread, fresh fruit,  and only drink tea or coffee when  you have finished your meal, not  during its course.  For lunch or dinner the surgeon  adivescs a meat of some sort, followed  must)  peal, meat, ship's biscuits and butter and an apple.  It will surprise you to hear that  lie wholly objects to farinaceous  diets, such as porridge, wheat  cakes, and the like, for the reason,  he declares, that if not followed by  a fruit diet, which cleanses the  teeth from deposits of food-matter,  the immediate consequence will be  to deprive the digestive organs  of their lubricity, with an ultimate  reaction occurring in the teeth.  The perfect tooth, without, fissures, or clefts, or pits, is rarely  found, except among children who  have been very carefully watched  by their parents during their years  of.  rearing.  Faulty molecular structure of the  teeth is accentuated by the mis-  chevious dietary- of the children.  Many little" ones are allowed to  grind up unlimited quantities of  hard bake when they have not  long passed the teething stage.  As they grow older in years, chocolates are showered upon them and  so the poor molars, are given no  chance.  Of all the foods which have a bad  effect on the teeth, starch and sugar  foods arc the worst and those who  have the care of children, or who  are themselves addicted to eating  starch or sugar foods, should never  omit t-o cleanse thc teeth.  Mastication is one of the conditions necessary to a proper exercise of the digestive functions, and  consequently to the attainment and  preservation    of     perfect     bodily  "In no country in thc  married   life  duller   than  land." .  This amazing statement was    re- '  cently matte by a Hungarian   professor of psychology in tne course'  of a lecture to students at   Buda  Pest.  MARRIAGE ENNUI.  According to the professor's own'  boast he has for many years in ado  a'close and special study of what j  hc calls "marriage ennui," and the j  outcome of his searches is that the  English husband and wife have fallen heavily in his estimation. i  Singularly enough he asserts that  married life in Scotland is blessed  with abundant happiness,'   though  unfortunately he makes no serious  attempt to explain tho cause, save  that "it may be due to thc exercise of greater freedom in Scottish  households and tlu> more exhilarating nature of the Scottish climate." :  The professor has apparently spent  many   months  in    England   study-,  ing the marriage question, and he is.  very dogmatic in his conclusions.  REASON WHY.  "There is  an  old  English  verb,"    he    states,    "which  pro-  says  and  'Familiarity breed, contempt,'  I am convinced that in these words  you will find the reason why married life in England is by no means  the happy and ideal state of existence most people imagine.  "The fact is that when an English'  man and maiden fail in love they  love to excess. They are so blindly  devoted to each other that nothing  elso matters. After a period of  courting���������������������������often too short to allow  of a careful estimate of each other's  character���������������������������they get married.  LOVE IS FLIMSY.  "Husband and wife dote on each  other. They are in each other's  thoughts every minute of the day,  and in each other's company as  often as possible  "They live in this blissful stato  for a time���������������������������perhaps even for twelve  months���������������������������and then what happens 1  'Familiarity breeds contempt.' Thc  inevitable reaction sets in, the husband and wife slowly but surely  recognize that each is a bore to the-  other, that their love is iiimsy and  fleeting, and that they have opposing interests. Then their life becomes one round of dull monotony,  and the acutest misery follows."  way  Those  make  tutcd    themselves  bodyguard.

The    shepherd      boy    answered:  "The  sun   in  the bright  blue sky  shines as brightly upon me as upon  ^ihc   king.  -The  flowers   upon   the-  mountain and the grass in the val-'  Icy grow and bloom to gladden my  sight as well as his.

MOUNT EREBUS.  One   of     the   most   interesting-  achievements of Lieutenant. Shackle-  ton's south polar expedition was thc  ascent of Mount Erebus, the most,  southerly of   all known volcanoes,  by a party led by Professor David.  The highest peak has an   elevation:  of 13,120 feet.   An old crater, filled  with feldspar crystals, pumice and  sulphur, was found at the height of  11,000 feet.    The active crater   at.  the summit is half a mil������������������ in diame--  ter, and S00 feet deep.   It was eject- ;  ing steam and sulphurous gases to  a height of 2,000 feet when the party  visited it.   The ascent was made in  March,  1908;  in June the volcano  was very active, and photographs of'  the eruption were made by moonlight.    The  neighboring    volcano,.

SCOTT & BOWNE  126 Wellington St.. W. Toronto  TREE PLANTING IN HOLLAND.  Elms and   Lindens   the Best, but  thc Elm is the Hardier.  .. There is perhaps no  other  well  populated country    in    the world  which has so    many  well wooded  towns as has Holland.   Most of-the  streets and grachts or canals have  avenues of trees.   Utrecht has two  rows of trees on either side of its  quaint canals. . Its canal, banks are  constructed  as  if  in two   stories.  The lower story, almost flush with  the water level, i3 lined with warehouses and vaults, while the upper  sbory has dwellings and shops. Both  levels are planted with trees.  So many avenues of trees make  a Dutch town exceedingly pleasant,  especially on a hot day.   The foliage  tempers the glare of tho sun -and  the vistas of green are refreshing  to   tho     eye.       These   abundant  growths in thickly populated towns  are highly useful as well as ornamental.    It is recognized that from  a hygienic point of view they are  valuable to the citizens.  In Holland these useful services  are gratefully recognized and the  trees    are carefully tended by the  hfffni ei pai i ti "es T^^Th e���������������������������c o s fc=of ��������������������������� _ h i s=  care per capita    in    the different  towns varies somewhat.   Last year,  [or   example,  Utrecht   devoted 21  cents (Dutch) to its trees for each  inhabitant and The Hague 28 cents  for each of its 259,000 citizens,    it  takes 2]/2 Dutch cent? to equal an  American cent.      About ten years  ago the annual cost of caring for  tho  trees, of .The Hague .wars.. 19  cents (Dutch) per capita, but since  that time many   new   trees    and  shrubs havo been planted throughout tho city and new parks have  been laid out.  It has been found that not every  kind of    tree    will    thrive in  thc  streets of a town,  for trees have  many enemies both above and below ground.     Oas    escaping from  pipes  underground    is    ihe  worst  enemy of trees, because quite small  quantities of it are deadly.      For  this reason special precautions aro  taken against the leakage of gas in  Dutch towns. How electricity escaping     underground     acts   upon  trees as yet has not been sufficiently studied to be understood. Trees  will not grow in very narrow  streets where the houses are high ;  neither will they thrive if the pavement does not let in moisture and  air in sufficient quantities.  The best trees for street planting  in Holland are elms and lindens,  but tho elm is the hardier of the  two and will grow where a linden  will not. Trees of these kinds color and about thc same  reach a great age, like thc old elms gravity as cast iron.

One of the party on his return  said there are hundreds of islands  in the locality mentioned which  from a distance look like mere  barren rocks, but on' closer examination prove to be fertile territory, many of the islands being inhabited by white communities or  native and half caste people who  have occupied themselves for many  years as trappers of mutton birds  for export to Tasmania and for  their own consumption. The average catch on-one island is about 1,-  500,000 birds a-year,' and the income from this source amounts to  between';.5,00 and ������������������6,000.  The dark skinned people who occupy Gape Barren Island are of all  shades, from the mere, suggestion  of "tint to pure black, and they have"  been of this variegated '��������������������������� skin color  for nearly 100 -years. There-is a  "school on this island- attended by  sixty or seventy children, the  teacher being pak .by the.Tasman-  ian Government, which satisfies its  conscience in respect- to'thes e^Hin-;  fortunates by merely giving them  instruction in "the three It's" and  taking no further trouble to help  them to put their education to practical account when they have finished their period of school. They  are naturally nomadic in-their instincts and do not knov/ how to  organize their affairs, hence as soon  as they leave the school they take  oh the mode of life of their elders,  living, well when the birds arc plentiful and going short to- a greater  or less extent in tho off season.  The touring pa_'ty concerned itself largely with the bird life found  upon the various islands, the specimens including albatross, gannet,  gulls, dotterels,' oyster catchers,  -p el .cans ,-=geese^an d=m u tton=_ birds._.  On Albati-oss Island, the bird the  place is named after, hatches its  young, and it is said that this is  the only known place in the world  where thc bird makes its nest, an  old theory being that these mysterious creatures hacched out their  young on their backs, a theory no  doubt absurd, yet forgivable in the  early days when nobody had discovered their hatching place.  Mutton- birds flock on various islands in the vicinity in myraids and  the eggs of various birds abound  in such huge numbers that shiploads of them could be gathered  with comparatively little trouble.  It is said that numbers of_ eggs  from these islands find their way  into market and arc sold as_ duck  eggs, which tl ey resemble in appearance and flavor.   #_.. .

BANISH PIMPLES  AN- ERUPTIONS  RICE AT WEDDINGS.  Custom   of   Throwing   Rice   Over  Ncviiy Weds Comes From India.  The custom of-throwing a shower  of rice over newly wedded couples  comes to us from India and originated in the idea Lfiat rice was au  emblem of fecundity, says    Housekeeper.   Thc Hindu bridegroom, at  the close of the marriage ceremony,  throws three handfuls of rice over  the bride, and she replies by throwing the. same over him.      With us,  the rice is thrown    by    outsiders.  The "old shoe" custom is generally supposed to come from the Hebrews, and is supposed to have originally implied tn .t the parents of  the bride gave up all authority over  her.    The   Germans   had   a   long  custom, which perhaps they would  not wholly give up even now,    of  putting the'bridegroom's  shoe  on  the pillow the bridal, bed; and in  Anglo-Saxon, marriage ' the father  gave .a shoe, of the   bride to the  bridegroom,-    who ctouched her on  th. head with it to'remind her who  was now.her master. .

SEPTEMBER 16, 1909  Northern  Okanagan  NEXT  week a Monoline  typesetting machine will  be installed in the office of  The Walker Press. ! This is  an evidence of  prosperity,  and a practical demonstration of unbounded faith in  the town, the district and the  people.     Editors  in   small  towns are not millionaires;  nor do they rise to that distinguished position rapidly.  They are as sane and far-  seeing as the average businessman.   They do not have  money to throw to the birds  ���������������������������the feathered variety. And  when you see  one putting  $1,500 of good, hard cash into a machine that looks like  the south end of a camel going  north, you can put it  down to this:  he has either  more dollars than sense, is  the organ of a political party  or a self-seeking coterie of  grafters, or he has unbounded  faith in the future.    Now,  my dear reader,  this editor  has not a political party, a  clique, nor a bank back of  him.   He is reasonably sane  and has sipped  enough of  life's hardships to know that  it requires one hundred cents  to make a dollar. _ Therefore, when he will spend his  dollars for a typesetting machine in a town of 800 people  he exhibits faith in the district he represents���������������������������and perhaps some sand���������������������������that is all.  It is the future he is building  for more than the present.  And it requires no prophet  to picture what the Okanagan will be.    Its future is  pictured on every side; magnify the present an hundred  fold and you have it.  A most remarkable change  has come in this end of the  Okanagan.    It used to be  that men  came  hither to  "make a stake and pull out."  To-day  they are   bringing  their "stake" with them, determined to stay and build  up the Valley.

Money and labor  are required to demonstrate  what  these  prospects  will  turn into.  Up to the present  time practical mining men  have not been much interested, but there is no good  reason why they should not  be if it can be shown that  the surface values go down.  The completion of the C.  P. R. to Penticton, will give  us direct connection with the  Granby  smelter   at  Grand  Forks.     The  handling   of  freight cars by barges on  the  Okanagan  lake would  give us practically an all-rail  route direct to the smelter.  The capacity of the Granby  has  been  increased to  such an extent that within a  month  it will  be putting  through 4000  tons  of  ore  every 24  hours.     This will  make  it the largest copper  smelter in the British empire, and the fourth largest  in the world.  Canada's Turn Next  tria have also become interested, and have instructed  their consuls and representatives at Winnipeg to report  on the proposed World's Fair  for Canada. United States  Consul-General John E.  Jones, who has just returned  to his post after an extended  tour, reports that an increased interest in the big  fair for Canada is shown  throughout the states, and  that the official representations presented by him to the  Department of State at  Washington were most favorably received.  r  Just arrived!

A.  Macdonald. as leader of the Opposition, should Mr. Macdonald be  raised to the bench, has been  touring the Kootenay district and  is advancing the view that a provincial election may be expected  at an early date. We have no  "inside" information on this  point; but we hardly think that  Mr. Oliver's expectations will be  realized. The life of the present  Parliament does not naturally expire until after another session,  and we can see no reason in the  world why it should be shortened. There is nothing at present  before the electors in the shape  of an issue demanding an expression of judgment at"the polls;  and, despite Mr. Oliver's ful-  minations against the Government, the people of British Columbia appear to be remarkably  well satisfied with present political conditions. On the other  hand, we can see at least one  very weighty reason why no election should be held at present.  It lies in the fact that a redistribution bill is imperitively demanded if anything approaching  to an equitable division of repre-  sention in the next parliament  is -to be expected. The rapid  growth of. the province during  the past few years, and the  changed conditions which have  been brought into existence since  the present basis of. representation was agreed upon are so apparent as to hardly require comment. .Take.our own constituency, for instance. The Okanagan is now in a position to demand at least two members, and  should really be. entitled to three.  Our voting strength is now close  upon 4,000 and when the next revision is. made in November it  will probably be found that we  have somewhere in the neighborhood of 4,500 names on the register of voters. Our geographical  area, extending as it does over  120 miles from north to south,  each section of which has its own  peculiar needs and necessities,  makes it a matter of no small  difficulty for one member to give  to all portions of the riding the  attention which the people ex  pect to receive. It is distinctly  to Mr. Ellison's credit that he  has in the past succeeded so admirably in looking after the interests of all parts of his constituency; but the time has certainly arrived when to do this  work properly is far too heavy a  tax to impose upon the capacity  of any single individual."���������������������������Vernon News.   The Railway Belt  A new map of the railway belt  of British Columbia has just been  issued by the Department of the  Interior, Ottawa. The map is  handsomely printed in colors on  heavy map paper. The information upon it is corrected up to  1st July, 1909. A glance at the  map will show a person exactly  how any particular area in the  Belt stands, colors being used to  indicate lands that have been  dealt with in any way. For instance, all homestead lands are  marked in yellow; sales special  grants, mining lands sales are  marked in red, lands disposed of  by the Provincial Government in  grey, Indian reserves in pink,  forest reserves and parks , in  green border, timber berths in  green hatching, grazing leases in  brown hatching. There are also  figures as to the acreage included  under each of these headings.  The map was prepared under  the direction of Mr. R. E. Young,  Superintendent of Railway Lands,  Department of the Interior, Ottawa. It is to be issued free,  and applications sent to Mr.  Young will be promptly dealt  with.

R)^0^<>>_>4^4<HH>><>'������������������<H^>^  A TALE OF THE SEA  Ifc is sixty years since I was serving as a midshipman on board  H. M. S. Xcnophon in thc South  Seas, says a, writer in Macmillan's  Magazine. She was ono of the finest frigates then ailoat.  From Callao, in 12 degrees south  latitude,  we were ordered to pro  ! wart Joeys were on the lookout for  his appearance. The instant he descended the vessel was dragged from  him and its content,, eagerly divided  among the thirsty crowd. The  steward complained to the Captain,  b,ut nothing came oi it.  It was decided to , make for  Yestapa, on the coast of Central  America, an anchorage some 200  milos distant, and we arrived there  when sixty days out from Callao.  Who can describe our relief when  we. reached that marvellous tropical coast, with its coral beach and  stately palms, backed by volcanic  mountains, and saw between deep  ravines the    downward plunge   of  cecd to San Bias, a port on the stream and torrent to thc sea? We  coast of Mexico, in 23>^ degrees thought our privations were ended,  north latitude.   The distance being  for,   although    we    could  see    no  thundering  roll  about 2,400 miles, the passage  through both trade winds as a rule  occupied throe weeks, and for this  break in thc thundering roll of  surf which the mighty Pacific sent  combining on the beach, we learned  ,      _-        i ,;__ _._..   than a .from an English    urig, which    lay  the Xcnophon carried more uian u-|_.. _        , .     P ������������������       ....  full supply of water, so that it oc  curred to no one to suppose we  should run short of the first necessary of life. We le.t Callao on Feb.  16, and on the eleventh clay out the  Galapagos group was sighted and  we came to an anchor in Post Office  Bay, Unarlcs Island. Here wc hoped to replenish our water tanks, but  no water could be obtained, and  we sailed without any further supply. It was from this time that our  ill luck began.  For sixteen days we remained becalmed within sight of land, drifting to and fro crowing and recross-  ing the equator with wearying iteration. On the seventeenth day we  got a slant of wind, and, losing  sight of thc islands, hoped we were  fairly off at last. But it was not to  be. In two days the wind dropped  again and we lay once more becalmed. Thirty-six days out and  barely one-third of tho distance  done! .   .  On March 20 the order was given  to stop all water for washing purposes. It was a necesity, and as  such it was accepted, but when it  wa.s seen that Capt. Lordling had no ,  intention of setting an example,  and that his own ablutions continued daily, it is not surprising  that  HE BECAME UNPOPULAR.  Another week passed, and still wo  lay at the .morcy of the wearisome  calm, its monotony broken only by , get under way.   Ihe men, there ore,  ' ~ 'who would gladly have risked their  there shipping a cargo of indigo,  that the Indians had filled their  water casks and doubtless would do  the same for ours. The boats were  sent to seek a watering place, but  after a careful survey thc officer  reported that landing was absolutely inpracticable except for the light  Indian canoes and catamarans. The  Indians were appealed to, and immediately offered to raft off a full  supply of water  FOR THE SUM OF $1,200.  When this news spread (and  spread it did like wildfire) never a  doubt had we but that our good  time was come and that our thirsty  souls would drink and live. But  well as we knew our Captain, there  was a little yet to be learned about  him. '"Why," he said at once,  "the Admiralty might make mc  pay the money. It's too much! I  won't give it!"  Still we did not entirely relinquish hope; a smaller offer was  made, to the natives, and this they  resolutely declined. Things having  reached this point, the senior  officers, with the .doctor, took the  extreme course of urging the Cap-  adopted to prevent the men drinking this appalling .mixture,  but it  could not    be  entirety    stopped.  Case 'after case was brought into  the sick bay and treated by the doctors with every care, but in vain.  All through this trying time   the  Captain's  live    stock, sheep    and  poultry, were supplied with no inconsiderable    amount    of     water,  while British seamen were thus dying for want of it.    Tormented as  the men  were by thirst, it is not  surprising that many attempts were  made to steal water from the deck  water tank. One man would decoy  the sentry    away,  while    another  rushed  in and    turned    the  ���������������������������tap.  The sentries were doubled, and some  of   the   men, caught   in    the   attempt,    were      flogged,    receiving  after,  the cruel custom of thc time  three dozen lashes ot the cat.  At last, on May 20, wo sighted thc  anchorage of San Bias, and the order was immediately given to serve  out a gallon of water to each man.

When this groat change first began teaspoons were made as small  as thc after-dinner coffee spoon of  modern times, but as the art of  making them advanced they he-  came larger and Urger, until they  attained  their present aha.  Again, at tho beginning of the  eighteenth century tho handles  showed a still further change, in  Unit where tlie sides were straight  they had curves, and the shaft itself became slightly undulated. At  this same time were also seen some  innovations, in tho shape of spoons  for specific purposes, one being a  spoon having a perforated bowl,  with a straight stem, which was  presumably intended t-o cloan the  spout of a  essary to know    w .*.t  change was made in.  To .within a few years after the  Restoration the hall mark was always on the inside of the bowl,  while all other marks were ������������������n the  back of the <handLe. But after this  all marks were put, on tho back of  the handle, near the bowl end, until tho latter part of the eighteenth  century ; then they were removed  to the other end of thc handle. It  each      I.  tain to reconsider his decision,  pointing out now much the men had  suffered and the gravity of the responsibility which he'incurred. But  all was of no avail; our chief was  obdurate, and the sole result of  their intervention was an order to  an occasional turtle hunt.    It was  now the seventh  week    out    from  Callao, but still   our   aching   eyes  looked in vain for signs of a coming .breeze.    The sails were furled,  for they were only beating themselves threadbare with the heave of  the ship in the oily sea as they flapped against the masts and rigging.  Coming on deck and glancing at the  sailless yards made it seem a mockery of being at anchor   in a-   safe  port.   Thc sun stared vertically at  us from a steel blue sky, and under  the double awnings the pitch  ran ,  liquid from the seams, clogging our  feet as wc walked tlie deck.  And  in  tne midst of these  roundings the order was  f ur-  lives   to obtain    water from   the  beach, had now, without an extra  drop    to    moisten    their    parched  throats, to heave iip the anchor and  turn their    backs on    the land   of  promise as we made for the   open  ocean.   Sore and sullen were all our  hearts,   and serious    consequences  might have ensued among the men  had it not  been    that    a    breeze  sprang up and their hopes with it.  The great mountains faded in the  blue distance and night fell on thc  sails sweetly asleep as the stately  frigate    swept    through    thc    sea.  Alas,  next day the sun rose on a  breathless calm!   Wc had not out-  given to | sailed our ill luck, and it was with  reduce the allowance of drinking jus again,  water to one pint a day for each [ One day the clouds began to  officer and man.

Tlie  served out  meal consisted of salt junk so long  in brine and so hard that it could  take a handsome polish in skilful  hands, or of pork that shrivelled in  the boiling to a little more than  hard rind.  The' result of   such    a diet,    of  course, was that when their dinners  were, over not a drop of water remain cxL to the poor fellows for" Iho'  next twenty-four hours of burning  boat.    Tho few who   tried to   save  some found it impossible,  for they  had no,place in which lo secure it  from their inprovident   shipmates.  Tn this strait the. men fell back on  vinegar, of which each moss had a  liberal allowance, but in Lheir rng-  ing  thirst  they  were  not satisfied  merely to moisten the mouths with  thc strong acid; they mixed it with  salt wafer and    drank it in    large  quantities, and  THE  TERRIBLE' EFFECT  may be imagined as, knocked   over  by .his horrible mixture, they rolled in agonies in the forecastle.  With the officers, of course, it was  different, though the allowance of  water was the same. Their food  was not so thirst provoking; they  could save, tho precious pint, and  even eke it out with a little wine  or beer. Mine. I .locked ,in my sea  chest, and had it been tne.

Lordling for himself reserved not only an unlimited supply  of drinking water, but also an ample  sufficiency for washing purposes.

The scupper  i holes were plugged, every receptacle  |was filled,     The   decks became a  surging lake in which    all    hands  rolled and drank.    Past privations  were forgotten,  and although    the  allowance of water was still kept at  a pint a day, yet every bucket and  moss can was full, and Jack once  more cut a shuffle on the forecastle  and sang of tho lass that loves a  sailor.  The seventy-seventh day from  Callao found us still some 600 miles  from our destination, with only _  few tons of water left. The sun,  which had a declination south of  Callao when we left, had overtaken  us and was sending slanting rays  from  thc north, but still thc heat  There is a widespread and growing interest in all old silver, but  perhaps of the many antique pieces  that attract both the amateur amd  the collector with equal fascination  there is none that has a greater  charm than the old silver spoon.  A French scholar says, "Spoons  are old. I do not claim that they  are as old as the world, but they  are certainly as old as soup," after  which it is easy tu believe that for  the last five or six centuries no self-  respecting family, of however humble station, but could boast at-least  one spoon to its name, whether of  silver, pewter, or even wood.  That spoons aro the direct lineal  descendants of the shell and horn  scoops with which our ancestors  were wont to convey fluid food to  their' mouths, would seem a safe  assumption. Many examples of  these ancient spoons are seen m  museums and also of the spoon of  wood, which was the next step toward the spoon of to-day. It is  from the wooden spoon lhat the  word is derived, as thc old English  word "spon" meant a small piece  of wood.  Tliat metal spoons were used in  Biblical days is certain, for in Exodus the Lord tells Moses to make  spoons of gold for use in the Tabernacle,  and to-day. there are to be  teapot, while the bowl  was for tho removal of floating tea  leaves from the eup.  This was undoubtedly the forerunner of the toastrainer. Another  spoon was thc snuff spoon, and besides this thc marrow spoon made  its appearance. This first marrow spoon was a crude affair indeed, but it.was not very long before it reached the form in which  it is seen even now-a-days, that is,  with the two ends of different sizes,  one for the large bones and the  other for the very small ones.  Probably none of tbe old spoons  equals in interest the Apostle  spoons, which camo into fashion in  the sixteenth century. It was an  English custom at that time for  sponsors to give these spoons to the  children for whom they made themselves responsible as baptismal  gifts. A wealthy godparent gave a  complete set of thirteen, hut a poor  one- generally contented himself  with but one, that having on it tho  figure of the child's patron saint,  bo make up for the lack of the  others.    The complete set had  A MASTER SPOON,  was not until the beginning of the  nineteenth century that they were  again put at the end of ihe handle  nearest the bowl, where they now  are.  In the fascinating study of old  spoons it is interesting to note tho  growth of the patterns that arc in  use to-day from th? crude, and yet  not at all unbcuutiful, designs of  the early examples. In many cases the modern patterns arc adaptations of the old Knglish hall marks s.  put on pieces of plate by their  makers hundreds of years ago, or  the ancient Goldsmiths' Company  which has been responsible for the  weight of silver in England ainco  the thirteenth century.  Two of tho patterns with which  we moderns are most- familiar aro  thc "fiddle head," the plain stem  with a sharp, angular shoulder on  each side, and the more ornate  "King" pattern, with its curves  and conventionalized shells. Both  bf these patterns are inoro than a  century.old, but, with only the very  slightest alterations, are exactly  the same in the spoons made today as thoy were when they first  appeared.

St. Paul has a  sword, St. Andrew a cross, St.  Peter, of course, a key, St. Judo  a club, St. John a cup (the cup of  sorrow), and so on.  Whole sets of these spoons arc  exceedingly rare. It is said that  but two complete sets are in existence at present, and there is a  third set of eleven. This is of great  value, having an undoubted date  of 1519, while the two others are  1566 or 1767 in ono case aud 162G in  the other.

The bird destroys snails, wire-  worms, beetles and all sorts of noxious insects that damage crops. As  it feeds largely at night it destroys  many insects that other birds do  not touch, and it has also" a peculiar virtue in killing a water snail  which indirectly is the cause of  liver rot, a deadly disease in sheep.  Plover have been more than usually numerous this , year, and no-  doubt if their eggs were protected,  as in Scotland, they would multiply  yet more and save many thousands  of pounds that are now spent on the  fattening of the v.ireworm. It is  becoming also a more popular practice to keep plovers as a garden pet.  They do incalculable good and aro  very interesting to watch, especially at this season.

ANOINTING SPOONS  are as old as the time when Nathan, the prophet, anointed Solomon as the ruler of Israel, and they  have been used to anoint kings  from that time to thc present day.  Thc spoon with which Edward VTI.  was anointed by tho Archbishop of  Canterbury is at least six hundred  years old, and has been used for  tho purpose of anointing the kings  of England over since it was remade for the coronation ceremonies  of Charles  II.  Another spoon of great antiquity  is the "Pudscy Spoon," given by  Henry VI. to. his friend and protector, Sir Balph Pudsey in 1445,  a. the time when hc was concealed  in Sir Kalph's house after the bat-  mark on the  a crowned sta  bowl,  a  r iu the  tie of Hexam. This spoon has the  pear shaped bowl of the unial form  of all ancient spoons previous to  the Restoration; thc handle is octagonal and at the end is flattened  13 which is  i  was intense, baking our black  as if it were an oven.

Every     precaution    had  out to  carved the King's bad  rose. Inside the bowl, near the  shaft,-is the hall mark of the thirteenth century sterling silver, a  leopard's head, and on the back of  the bowl is the.mark of the maker,  a heart in outline.  This spoon is the most ancient  known piece of silver in existence  that hears the indisputably authentic hall mark of the English "Goldsmiths' Company."  All the earliest spoons have pear  shaped bowls. It was not until the  latter part of thc seventeenth century that they began to elongate  toward the egg-shaped spoon oi the  by the  hall  shield, with  centre.  The value of these old sets of  Apostle spoons will be understood  when some of the prices.paid for  them arc known. One set sold in  l!>03 for 92-1,500, while another, of  less ancient date, brought $..,300.  A single Apostle spoon, bearing on  its handle a figure of St. Nicholas  and on thc stein the inscription,  "St. Nicholas, pray for us," sold  in London five years ugo for thc  unheard of sum of $3,-150, Lhe most  exaggerated price- ever paid for a  single spoon so fai as can be ascertained.  The most modem Apostle spoon  of which there is any record bears  the date, HiCO. It is believed that  about that period the custom of  giving them as presents ut baptisms began to ware.  Other spoons of interest, though  not of such great antiquity, are  tho little "caddy spoons" which  made their, appearance when tea  drinking became fashionable more  than two hundred years ago. All  of these spoons have very short  stems and handles, with bowls of  some fanciful design, some perforated, but the majority shell shaped  and fluted. A few were made like  miniature scoops,  with  HANDLES OF EBONY,  and some ot.ie._s were perfect imitations of leaves, thc handle being  ���������������������������formed by the leaf .aiem curling  around into a ring.

SOLDIERS OF FORTUNE  KING LOUIS' SWISS GUARD OF  5,000 SLAUGHTERED.  Revolting Massacre Perpetrated by  a   Former   Sultan   of  Turkey.  When Yildiz Kiosk surrendered to  the Young Turks the other day, the  Sultan's Albanian bodyguard got  i off much more lightly than has usually been the case aforetime in regard to the private mercenaries of  other despots under similar circum-  _ stances.    ���������������������������| There were al together fi've-thou-  'sand of them, and of these fewer  "than five hundred died fighting,  while at least four thousand of  them surrendered at discretion.  ! Compare this with' the fato of  King Louise the Sixteenth's Swiss  Guard at Versailles during the first  French revolution. There were fivo  thousand of these also, but none  surrendered when the bloodthirsty  o'luob of armed revolutionists burst  into thc palace,  !     NOR WERE ANY SPARED.  When the day's fighting ended at  evening, there were five thousand  dead bodies where that number of  .living men had been when morning  broke.  When Mahmoud, the Afghan invader, mado himself master of  Ispahan, the Shah's guard of 3,000  men deserted their master and  went over to thc conqueror. He  took them into his pay, but a day  or two afterwards he altered   his  mind and had them all put to death.  An even more revolting massacre was that perpetrated by  a former Sultan of Turkey,  also strangely- enough named  Mahmoud, upon his bodyguard of  Janizaries. Hc owed his throne to  them, but hc feared them nevertheless and resolved to suppress them.  SULTAN  UNFURLED BANNER.  A mutiny was accordingly excited  amongst them, and then, in accordance with a pre-arranged plan, the  Sullan himself unfurled thc sacred  green banner of Islam, and led his  regular soldiers against them. At  least 20,000 were mown down with  grapeshot.  Another still more dreadful occurrence of the kind was brought  about through the massacre, by the  people of Nishapur, of the private  bodyguard of Gengis Khan. The  -Tartar invader, in revenge, carried  fire and sword throughout the district, killing no fewer than 1,747,-  000 human beings.   ~-*   SENTENCE SERMONS.  ser-  Saintliness is  measured  by  crooked life is always  well  vice.

Editor The Enderby Press:  Dear Sir: A few weeks ago a  man was fined in Enderby for  firing a gun within the city limits.  Since that time I have heard  many shots fired in different  parts of the town; in fact, it is  going on all the time, but I do  not hear of any further prosecutions. I should like to ask the  City Police Commissioners why  one man is fined, while others  are allowed to commit the same  offence and go scot-feee?  Yours truly. Justice.  Editor The Enderby Press:  Dear Sir: Where are we at on  the temperance question? The  temperance people of a neighing town were crying loud and  long for the doing away with the  liquor licences of their town. A  worker in the person of Mr. Pol-  son of Vernon, came in and purchased one of the hotels of the  town, being the one which was  run in a very disorderly way,and  where drunkenness was common.  This was done at a cost of $19,-  000, with an additional cost bf  over $3000 for repairs and furnishings, say nothing about cutting  out the liquor licence, which was  known to be worth in dollars and  cents a straight $10,000. A tenant was then secured who kept  an absolutely clean, up-to-date  and orderly house, as the whole  community knew. It therefore  goes without saying that both  owner and tenant expected the  patronage of the so-called temperance people. Did they get it?  No; positively, no! On the contrary the house was shunned by  them. But this was not the limit.  Behold, an august body of Presbyterian preachers visited the  town for convention purposes,  and upon this occasion the Presbyterian preacher of the town  went around among the good  people and secured free bed and  b'oard for these poor preachers.  Now, sir, are these men underpaid that they must needs live in  this cheese-paring way? They  receive from $900 to $1,500 per  annum and generally a free houes  with considerable odds and ends  thrown in. Do the people who  are asked to board them free net  $900 a year from their business?  I trow not. Then what is the  matter?  - ' Oh, wad some power the prif tie gee ua,  'To sec oursels" as ilhers see us."  Yours truly,  A Temperance Worker.  "over-  day without killing him. The  report does not say how badly  the machine was injured.  Congratulations to Enderby  Enderby, here's to you. A city  hall, eh! You have a great deal  more get up to you than we have.  How long, oh, how long are we  going to have our municipal busir.  ness conducted here, there and  everywhere? The Reeve and  Councilors .have absolutely no  comfort when they meet for business. The clerk and treasurer  each give up their private premises for the use of the public, the  constable uses his residence.  There is no concentration whatever. ���������������������������Armstrong Advertiser.  Thank you, Advertiser. Enderby is indeed to be congratulated; but not so much on the  fact that we are to have a city  hall,' as on the fact of our having  had, from the town's inception,  a city clerk who has handled  every detail of the city's business  with the precision and dispatch  customary to be found only in  cities very much larger than Enderby. Mr. Rosoman has the  city's business at his fingers'  ends. Concentration! Well,  yes! He is city clerk and treasurer; tax collector, police magistrate and returning officer; he  frames all of the city by-laws  and is the encyclopedia incarnate  on municipal matters. We pride  ourselves on the fact that we are  about to erect a creditable building in which he may conduct the  city's business.
