 Enderby, B. C, September 30, 1909  AND      WALKER'S      WEEKLY  Vol. 2; No. 31; Whole No. .83  3_X_I  XX  xx:  xx:  ENDERBY NEWS BOILED DOWN-WHAT'S DOING ALONG THE SPALLUMCHEEN  xxc  jCZXZZ  xxz  Ira C. Jones ih Court  Before Magistrate Heggie, on;  Monday, Ira C- Jones appeared'-  charged with counselling a theft.  The charge was laid by Wm.  Long,' of Mara. The offense was  alleged to have been committed  last spring when Long was sent  to Kamloops for beating his wife.  The articles alleged -to have been  stolen were such articles of food  as remained in the house on the  Long farm when Mrs. Long was  taken to the home of Mr. Jones  to be cared for after Long had  been sent to jail. These Mrs.  Long sold, as they were perishable and would either spoil or be  taken out of the cabin after it  was vacated.  Harry Ellis is the person it was  alleged that Mr. Jones counselled  to commit the theft. Ellis was  arrested in Vancouver last Thursday by Constable Gardom and  was detained in the~ goal until  Saturday when he was released  on bail.. The case against Ellis  was set for Monday at 11 "o'clock  .but when the hour arrived the  prosecution stated that it had no  case against Ellis.  Mr. Jones had come from Vancouver at his own expense, .to  testify in Ellis' defense, and  when he arrived a charge of  counselling the theft was laid  against him. The only evidence  produced against him was that  of the complaining witness. Mr.  Jones, in his own defense, said  in substance that in the year  1904 Long came to him and said  he would have to lose the place  if he did not get money. Jones  let him-have $100 to carry hini  Hfor-=a-while,=and=fromJ;hat_;ime_  on Long tried to get him to take,  the place, but he refused. Then  H. W. Harvey was pressing Long  for a store bill of some $400 and  Long gave place over to Harvey  to sell. Then considering that if  Mrs. Long were to have a home  he would have to save it for her,  he paid the claims against it and  the place and chattels were deeded to him. Jones gave Long a  lease on the place, but Long neglected from the very first to' live  up to the conditions of the lease,  and the place was fast going  back into the wild state. When;  last spring, Long was arrested  and sent to Kamloops for beating  his wife, Mr. Jones decided the  best thing to do was to rent the  place for a year and he gave H.  Ellis and his mother, Mrs. Long,  instructions to sell what was not  needed, and with the proceeds  they paid Long's debts.      ;.   ( .  When Long was released from  jail H. Ellis wrote him to put up  line fence on the place and'he,  could have the $50 rental, arid, he  also sent him an order for $19.  worth of provisions.  Last March Jones "turned the  place over to H. Ellis on an  agreement of sale, subject to the  lease in Long's favor. Mr. Jones  said that he had expended "upwards of $1,000 on the place and  he had sold it to Ellis . f or $925.  It is to be held by Ellis' as a home  for his mother. It was paved  for them by Mr. Jones.'   The  case was dismissed on its merits.  Attorney W. E. Banton handled  the case for Mr. Jones.  Rev. T. G. McLeod, formerly  Presbyterian minister here, has  just sent in his resignation at  Grand Forks, B. C. According  to the Grand Forks,correspondent  of the Nelson Daily News, he is  a man ' 'of scholarly attainments''  and his action is "a keen blow to  the many friends he has made  since coming to Grand Forks."  Master Wilfrid Small, Calgary's  musical wonder, gave a violin solo  which fairly brought down the  house, and the little performer  succeeded in giving a praiseworthy rendering of a very difficult number. ���������������������������Calgary Herald, '07  ,,  .

But, in the criminal courts, at least,  there is, or should be, a limit. In civil  matters, it is up to the man who goes  courting^to^pay_-the-COsts._ and no objection  can be raised so long as he feels disposed  to spend his money in that way. But all  criminal charges have to be prosecuted by  the Crown and the cost is thrown upon the  people. When men are permitted to use  the criminal courts to settle civil cases it is  stepping beyond the limit, and lowering  the dignity of the court.- . .  Weliave recently seen two instances of  this in the local court. In one the complaining witness went onto the property of  the accused, pulled down a fence and was  about to drive through a piece of ground  under cultivation. He was put off the land  by force and resorted to the criminal court  for easement. He was permitted to lay a  charge of criminal assault. Of course the  magistrates dismissed the case, but the  complaining witness gained his point and  the Crown paid the costs of the case, if  there were any.  The other case is more recent and if anything more flagrant. A week ago Harry  Ellis was arrested in Vancouver, brought  back to Enderby and incarcerated in the  dingy outhouse misnamed a provincial goal  until Saturday evening without bail, and  when the case was called in court not a  scintilla of evidence was introduced against  him, and the charge was withdrawn. The  charge was one of stealing, and was laid  by Wm. Long, of Mara. A similar charge  was laid against Ira C. Jones, though the  papers were never served on him, Mr.  Jones paying/his own way from Vancouver  to appear in court and answer the charge.  No evidence, was produced to show that  there-was the ghost of.-. a--case. against him,  and Magistrate Heggie dismissed .the  charge, with the remark that it was. no  matter, for the criminal court, but should  be settled, if there was any case at all, in  the civil court. .    -  It is not our purpose to show the injustice  of this case. The decision of the court is  sufficient for that. But we would like to  ask, what is to be the end if we are to  make our courts the cat's paw in the settlement of these family squabbles? Who is  to pay the costs? What is to be gained?  Can we afford to pay our magistrates.to sit  for hours hearing the recital of petty differences of opinion as to who is the best  "man~ih^tu_Belro^  to make a pushel? Is this the mission of  our courts? Do we raise the standard and  increase their efficiency by this thrusting  upon them such trivial matters? And, on  the other hand, who is to recompense the  men hauled into court charged with these  crimes? Who is to pay them for time lost  and money spent in travelling and court  expenses defending themselves? What redress have they? Surely there is a better  way.  Is it possible to arrest a man on a charge  so serious as theft, incarcerate him, bring  him before the court and, then, finding no  case against him, dismiss the charge without presenting a scintilla of evidence? It  is possible, because it has been done; but is  there any reason or justice in so doin^?  Surely a citizen has some rights. If this  were to continue a few busybodies. could  get their heads together and, on the mere  sayso of the town fool, cause the arrest of  any citizen. No man would be safe.  Are we to forget���������������������������ignore���������������������������the thing all  men hold most dear���������������������������their honor-^ arid cast  a shadow upon the home of a most respected citizen���������������������������and for what?  In the case at issue, after the charge of  theft against H. Ellis had been dismissed,  Ira C. Jones���������������������������a citizen of Enderby for six  years Or more, and one respected by, all���������������������������was  tried on a charge of counselling the theft, though  the prosecution stated it had no case of theft before the court!   Say, boys, where are we at?  Robert Race Gone.  The death of Robert Race, at  the Vernon Hospital, last Wed-  nesday, . from   typhoid   fever, .  brought gloom to the hearts of  his many friends in this city and  neighborhood. .

Postoffice Window Display.  Postmaster Harvey's idea of  displaying the good things the  northern Okanagan can produce^  has jumped into popular favor at  once.   He has a window full of"  splendid  samples of fruit and  vegetables.   Mr. Harvey is particularly anxious to impress exhibitors  with  this   point. ", He  wants-to-k-now-if-you^have-more^  than a sample plate.   He wants  to know the quantity you have to  dispose of.   Quantity,  Quantity  is the all important thing just  now.   The fact that the Northern  Okanagan can grow, the best that  can be grown, is conceded; we  need the quantity to get and hold  the market.

To Put on Band.���������������������������Measure band  lengthwise of cloth, kmgtli desired.  Put edges together, crease, and  haste near top to hold in place.  Turn under one edge, then fold  .second edge over drat, and crease,  (separate edges, i .it garment ready  for hand iu between edges, sure to  nave edgp first turned for right  Aide. .Stitch on Lni.s .idc and under eilgc will always be neatly  caught, as it is sli\nlly the deeper.  Try it.  Mock Homstitiching.���������������������������When making tucks in fine sheer materials,  make Lhe stitch on your, machine  looser than for ordinary sewing.  When you have thc tuck stitched  the desired length, take the goods  and pull lightly across thc tuck,  and lo, behold, you have it hem-  .i etched.  One Color Idea.���������������������������When your  children can wear the same colors  buy all dresses of those colors and  see how much easier washday will  be. Soak and wash in same water.  For instance, all blues and grays  can be washed together (fast colors), but not red and greens and  blues.  Stocking Hint.���������������������������Cut roiind piece  from old stocking about the size of  a dollar. Whip edges to prevent  0raveling and sew on thc wrong side  of the stocking where 3Tou catch thc  hose supporter. This will keep  the finest hose from being torn and  if done neatly is not disfiguring to  the stocking.  Lace Waist Suggestion.���������������������������Almost  any one will find when they go  through their old laces that there  will he enough for a lace waist. And  thc more kinds the prettier it will  be. Select a plain pattern, join at  tlio shoulder seams, and cut out of  heavy paper. Now lay the laces on  the way you want them and join  with chain crochet. If clever with  crochet stitches many pretty ideas  may b. .worked in fcnis way, and you  will have a waist that will be prettier than any you could buy.  Buttonholes.���������������������������Tape makes an excellent substitute for buttonholes  on children's clothes, and its use  saves many hours of tedious work.  Baste a strong narrow tape or cord  along Lhe edge oE the garment to  be buttoned and stitch upon machine .with strong thread. - When  exactly opposite a button slip tape  to one side enough to escape stitching the length cf the button, then  slide tape back in placs and continue to. next button and repeat.  Thc spaces not stitched should be  the exact length of th������������������button and  the tape should lie flat and even,  ���������������������������with no extra length allowed. When  (slipped over button it will lie flat  and firm. For the small boy who is  still wearing his waists and(,trous-  ers buttoned together it is comfortable to make these buttonholes .in  the back of thc trousers of elastic  tape, as this stretches a little when  he bends and consequently fewer  buttons are pulled _o_f'L   SOUPS.

This misty and mysterious visitant, far older hatn Gog or  M'agog, who used to visit the watches of the night when thc metropolis  barley lifted itself out of thc surrounding marshes, has a. fund of  comedy as well as tragedy. Countless murders have been committed  under its sheltering cloak, men and  women have been waylaid, children  have heen torn from their mothers  and wives from their hinbands;'  but, on the other hand, there are  not a few incidents of a lost harrowing character.  the  had been offered  god the sacrifice  god    was  scene,  and his  temple  human    heart    that  its   recent  worship-  indicated   thc   spot  where,   in  twentieth century,  to the man-made  of a human life.    This  still on the  was  in  every  gloated  over  its name, Revenge  LYNCHED!  Hanging in chains attached to tho  tree was all that remained of a human body. Thc poor, terror-  stricken features ha 1 at last resumed a peaceful repose, and, as  if by a miracle, had remained un-  scorched, while the pitiful wisps of  white hair lay fire-scorched, on the  skull. The imagination of the most  depraved being on the face of the  earth cannot crave for more horrible reality than is to be found in  plenty at a "lynching," when this  sad blot'on the name of a great  people is allowed, time after time,  to stain its otherwise clean code of  honor, says a writer in London  Answers.  I need not draw on my imagination to pander to the taste of he  most morbid individual in order to  satisfy his craving for thc horrible.  It will be enough to describe an  actual scene, which, in my capacity  as a newspaper reporter, I witnessed in the State of Virginia, when,  sick at heart, and wondering at the.  flag that floated over the town-hall,  and thc "freedom" it represented,  I was forced, in'the interests of my  paper, to see this horrible crime  consummated;  IN AT THE DEATH.  An old negro, known locally as  "Uncle Abe," had been arrested on  the word of a child of ten.  "If thc man is guilty of the crime,  then by all means let the law take  its course, and let thc punishment  be the mose severe that' the code  of the State can inflict. But let thc  man have a fair trial. Fair play's a  jewel." Thus I expressed my views  on the subject, and the person to  whom I addressed myself���������������������������seemingly a man of refinement and education���������������������������replied :  "You're a Britisher, aren't you?  Well, you people do not seem to  understand what we have to con-,  tend with when the animal in the  negro gets thc upper hand. The  nigger is guilty���������������������������it's his nature to  be so in this case���������������������������and we've got to  keep the beasts in order. In a few  minutes you will sec how we punish  such offences as this nigger is guilty  of."  Seeing that my appeal to the best  instincts of the maddened crowd  had only thc effect of rousing him  to anger, I thought it wise to re-  refrain from saying anything to tho  re m a i n i n g. p or tj.o n _oj_ t_hj s_ _i_gp_re se n -  tativc gathering of^hc people,"  and, in silence secured a _ position  on thc branch of a tree which overlooked the prison, and waited.  AT THE PRISON.  There wore about three or four  thousand people, all madly anxious  to secure a place from which each  could witness the horrible death  agony of a poor.fellow-human..They  surged around the prison, they  fought for places vacated by the  weaker, who fell in thc mad rush for  the  prison  gate,   and  their    cries  rent the air.  Presently L saw the prison gate  opened. 'The "people" had demanded thc accused negro, and thc  sheriff and warden had come to thc  conclusion that the law must give  way to force, and���������������������������it seemed to me  ���������������������������they did not long hesitate in coming to the latter decision.  Then two score or so of thc men  went inside the gate, and soon  emerged, dragging the terrified old  man between them. His appearance was the signal for a rush of  the people to a field about four  hundred yards away.  I watched the procession from  where I sat, fascinated. But, hearing the poor negro speak, I climbed  down, and fought my way to   his  side. .  "Oh, don't burn dis pore owcl  nig.ah!"- he moaned. "I'se been  on"dis yer Ian' fo' mo' nor seventy  year, an' I'se alius 'spectible���������������������������I  hev l' I'se insent! Sure as I be  bawn!

I felt instinctively that the  poor old man was.innocent. I made  as if to draw my gun, and face the  crowd of murderers; but at once.I  felt my head seized, and a voice���������������������������  that of thc man to whom I had first  spoken���������������������������said, "No use, governor!  You're but one, and look at this  mob !"  "Of whiclr you arc a part!" I  retorted. "Man���������������������������man, can't you  see that these people arc race mad ?  Can't you see that thc poor man's  color is his crime? You are a  Southerner. Docs that fact make  you less of a man ?"  1 was very excited, 1 know, and  tears���������������������������tears of which I am not  ashamed���������������������������brimmed over. He smiled  sarcastically.

I worked my way out of thc  crowd, and gob back to thc free.  BURNING A CORPSE.  I saw the poor old man dragged  to "a serviceable tree," and a  chain, whieh willing hands brought  forth, was thrown around his already bound body. His old face  had become calm, and, when asked  to confess, he turned his great  eyes upward, and, speaking in a  sweet, low voice, which yet reached thc confines of the crowd, he replied :  "I'se an owd, owd man, an' I  nevah in my life hurted nobody.  Thet's all Vse ter say."  Thc crowd yelled with derision,  and in a moment the green wood,  saturated with coal-oil, had been  set alight. ��������������������������� I turned my face away.  One long, wailing shriek, and the  agony had commenced.  I dropped from the tree. There  was a revolvtr-shct. The poor  nigger was burned, but thc butchers burned a corpse.  I was glad I had my revolver  that day.  TICKING OUT TWINS.  The Nurse Girl Found it an Easy  Matter.

"Then, of course,  that  one   would   be  that."  "Well, then," said the old gentleman, "how do you manage to  separate  them?"  "We seldom do, but when wc  ^w-a-it^to^w-c^put__me_in^ojL_^rooin.  and  the other in  another."  "How do you know which ono  you're putting in which room?"  "We look and sec which is in  the other room, and then we know  the other is in  thc which room."  "Very good," said the old gentleman,'warming up to thc problem, "but if one of them was in  the house and the other was away  somewhere," would you be able to  tell which was in the house?"  "Oh, yes, sir," said thc girl, earnestly; "nil we would have to do  would he to look at him and then  we would know that the one wc  saw was the thc one in thc house  and then, of course, the one away  somewhere would be thc other.

Young Woman Thought Kiss Worth  Five Shillings.  An amusing argument as to the  value of a kiss was heard in a  Vienna district court not long since.  Bah'ctte Foight, a milliner, .had  accused an electrician named Holzmann of having stolen her watch,  when dancing with her at' a - ball.  She afterwards found thc watch at  home, and offered Holzmann a public apology, buthe refused to accept  it unless accompanied by a kiss  given in the presence of her friends.  Fraulcin Babette declined on the  ground that she was engaged to  be married, and Holzmann brought  an action for slander. When the  judge heard the circumstances ho  suggested an amicable arrangement  by way of a money payment in place  of the'kiss, and asked Holzmann at  what prico he valued a kiss.  Holzmann wan bed ton shillings,  but, amid general laughter, the  young woman declared that her  kisses were not worth nearly as  _m uch .=Jki tially_-thc_Judgo_pers_iLg____  ed Holzmann "to accept five shillings.

PELTON. ~  M-t������������������_^*_*+tft't_hK*_ **  1  Ih^Home  COLD DISHES FOR WARM DAYS  Emancipation from serving hot,  heavy meals should be the housewife's declaration of independence  during the summer months. If her  family has not yet learned that  summer should be mother's vacation time, too, let them begin les-  =Bons_at__once..=_AV_he.n.possiblo_it_is_.  pood to follow the custom of women  in smaller towns and serve the hot  meal at noon, and a cold supper,  generally with creamed potatoes  and tea biscuits as the hot dish.  Cold sliced meat, salad, and fresh  fruit complete this sensible menu.  Many housewives have their families trained to eat cold rice or mush  nnd mlik, or merely a. dish of berries  or other fresh fruit and cake for the  evening meal. This plan is more  diflicult for the city or suburban  housewife, whoso men folks eat a  hasty luncheon at noon and depend  on a hearty dinner at night. Many  women ro induce their husbands  to take a chop or steak with their  noon meal and cat lighter food at  night. Some allow for this extra  heavy meal at noon out of the  household allowance, so the husbands cannot object on account of  the heavy meal being too expensive.  The dishes which custom has mado  us serve hot, but which can be  served cold and made just as tasty,  are legion. It is popular and sen-  Bib lo to substitute fresh fruits for  a first course instead of hot soup-  fresh berries, mixture of fruits  sweetened and kept on ice for an  hour or two before serving, pineapple, orange, banana, and mclona.  With abig spoon "eggs" may be  scooped, from the pink pulp of - the  watermelon. The effect of those  pink eggs on a bed of ice or grape  leaves, as a first course, with pink  flowers in the center of the table,  is pretty. '  Cold Soups .Thickened with Gelatin.���������������������������When you get the habit of  nerving cold soups you will never  set a dish of hot soup before your  family in dog days. The cold soups  are . eaJly aspic, made of soup stock  and vegetables, just as you make  any soup and thickened with enough  gelatin to give them thc proper consistency. Cold soup'is served " in  cups. Chicken comes first in popularity, then tomato, then beef stock.  Of course in preparing soup to be  served you must be particular to  have it well seasoned, for you wish  your family to like it instantly.  Parsley, celery, and bay ieaves  give chicken soup a good flavor, and  a bit of red pepper adds piquancy.  Red pepper is used to excess in hot  countries to stimulate the stomach  and liver, but a bit used occasionally is an addition to any dish and  not necessarily overstimulating,.  Thc water in which vegetables arc  iboiled==and=the=icreamecT=-vegetablcs  left over may be converted into sum-  mcr soups, crea _i soups, by the addition of milk and soup stock thickened, c  When the vegetables are used, as  spinach, celery, asparagus, peas,  beans, or any vegetable pulp, it is  first boiled until tender, then rubbed through a fine sieve and added  to-the-milk-and soup stock-in-thc  proportion of two cupfuls of vegetable pulp to one quart of soup  stock or milk, or half stock and half  milk.  Same Rule Applies to    All.���������������������������By  using this rule for cream of spinach, soup can be made from   any  vegetables.     Boil the spinach until  tender, drain,    chop, and   rub   it  through a sieve.   Acid two cupfuls  of the pulp to one quart of milk or  stock or half parts of each.   Put on  thc fire and thicken with one tablespoonful of butter and two   tablespoonfuls of flour.   Season with salt  and pepper.    It is mare richer by  adding a half cupful of cream and  beaten.with an egg whip.   Cream of  tomato is one of the popular summer  soups.    The tomato and the    milk  are heated separately, the latter being cooked and strained.    A bit of  soda is added to the tomato and it  is stirred into the milk, Lnot   vice  versa. ..Season with salt,    pepper,  and butter to taste.     City   housewives buy the tomato soup in cans  and make cream of tomato    with  that.   This soup served in cups with  whipped cream and an English walnut on top is a dainty first course  at luncheon.   Onion soup is popular  with the French and Italians.    To  prepare this put two ounces of butter in a saucepan and when melted  add a tablespoonful of    flour, stir  and when it begins to turn yellow,  cut them into dice, slices, or fancy  shapes. They can be arranged in  layers and covered with the aspic,  etting each layer harden a little  jefore arranging the next. Wheu  covered with the aspic- set away to  harden. Chicken, tongue, and  other meat aspics are delicious.  With a little experiment, one can  become expert in decorating a mold  with designs of hard boiled eggs and  vegetables, arranging the slices, of  chicken or meat attractively and  covered with the. aspic, _>octhe dish  will come on the table exceedingly  pretty. ;       - _,  Leftover      Meats      Attractively  Served.���������������������������When one has just a few  slices each of chicken,  ham,    and  tongue, and wishes to serve these,  an attractive dish can be made by  garnishing the platter with    little  squares or molds or aspic hard boiled eggs, slices of beet pickle, and a  border of parsley or cress.   Evefy:  thing here   is   good and nutritious.  Aspic dishes are just as suitable for  the company luncheon and Sunday  night supper as they are for - the  family meal. Since the stock, which  is made by boiling the bones and  ���������������������������lest- desirable pieces-of meat, .-and  the gelatin used���������������������������if thickening   is  necessary���������������������������are- inexpensive,    aspic  dishes are,to be prepared the evening before or early in the   morning  and set in the ice box to cool.   With  one "hearty" vegetable, as baked  stuffed potato or escalloped corn,  a vegetable -salad; and fresh fruit,  a meal is satisfying and easily pre-  prcd.   Cold boiled fish are delicious  when covered  with jellied  mayonnaise and  decorated  with  one    of  these :   Pickles, beets, hards boiled  eggs, capers, water cress,   nasturtiums,  lemon points, and .so   on.  One   formula   for   jellied   mayonnaise for fish is:   Add one and one-  half tablespoonfuls of gelatin which  has been soaked for an hour and a  half_to_a. cupful of clear   beef   or  chicken stock which has been  heated. When this has cooled, stir  into it a half cupful of olive oil, a  tablespoonful of vinegar or lemon  juice, salt, pepper, and the beaten  yolk of an egg.  SEASONABLE SALADS.  Cabbage Salad.���������������������������Take the tender white center from a head of cabbage. Shred fine and crisp in ice  water. Make a cooked dressing of  three egg yolks, three tablespoonfuls of butter, five of tarragon vinegar, one teaspoonful of grated  horse-radish and the same amount  of mixed mustard and a good pinch  of salt. Cook over hot water until  creamery; when cold add an equal  portion of whipped cream and stir  through one pint of the shredded  cabbage well drained,, one cupful of  chopped peanuts, and half a cupful  of diced pickled beats. Fill the  cabbage shell and garnish with  celery plumes and circles of beets.  Sally Joy Brown Salad.���������������������������Ingredients���������������������������One large head of lettuce,  two small'grape rruit, one-quarter  of a pound of shelled pecans, one-  quarter of a pound of black walnuts. Take outer leaves from lettuce head and place whole under  cold water faucet drip until leaves  are all . thoroughly washed and  opened. Divide the grape fruit into  its natural sections carefully. With  a sharp knife ' slit seed side of each  section and turn contents inside  out. This method retains sections  whole and conserves juices'. Run  nuts through meat grinder, finely  set. Arrange grape fruit sections  into open lettuce petals, and  sprinkle ground nuts over all liberally. Set on ice until thoroughly  chilled and serve   with    following  THE LAUNDRY.  Black Goods.���������������������������In laundering black  wash goods use a small portion of  black diamond dye, mixing it in  with the starch. This will take  away the glossy appearance so common in black shirt waists.  Washing Fluid.���������������������������Sal soda, one  pound; stone lime, one-half pound ;  water, five quarts. Boil a short  while, stirring occassionally; then  let it' settle and pour off thc clear  fluid into a sl.ne jug and cork for  use. , Soak your white clothes over  night in clear water, wring out, and  soap wristband, collars, and dirty  or stained places. Have boiler haif  filled with water, and when hot, put  in one common teasupful of fluid,  stir, aud put in your -clothes and  boil half an hour; then rub lightly  through one suds only, rinsing well  in the bluing wat_r, as usual, and  all is complete.  Seam Board.���������������������������When ironing vests  and linen suits, in fact all garments  with heavy seams, use a thickly  padded board; an inch thickness is  none too much. _tarch in moderately thick, well cooked starch:  Dry thoroughly before sprinkling,  as the stick element in starch  evaporates in drying. Let garments  stand-, at least two hours after  sprinkling. Starch should never  be.allowed to get cold and lumpy.  Sticky, starch is the result. When  ironing vests stretch garment well  into shape; begin ironing on wrong  side, then right side, alternately,  until thoroughly dry. Finish on  wrong side if dullfinish is.desired.  A thickly padded board is half of  the battle.  White Clothes.���������������������������If there-are rust  spots remove by an application of  lemon juice and salt, place in the  sun. Remove fruit and grass  stains by pouring boiling - water  from tea Kettle upon spots. For ink  stains soak in sweet milk, then soak  goods in tepid water. Fill two tubs  half full of warm water.- In first  put one cupful of dissolved soap.  Wring clothes .from cold water;  wash through first tub" to second  tub ; rinse and put in boiler half  full of water. Boil for ten minutes,  using clothes stick " at ��������������������������� intervals.  Life from boiler into rinse water,  then into bluing, and starch water.  Wring out, smooth out" wrinkles,  and .dry in sunlight.  Washing Made Easy.���������������������������Shave    a  bar of good laundry soap-   into   a  pan and    add two   tablespoonfuls  washing powder.   Cover with water,  let it boil until    dissolved,    after  which stir into it two-thirds cupful  of gasoline, stirring constantly until thoroughly incorporated.   There  is then no danger of explosion.   Sort  clothes and for each lot have vessel  filled with cold water. [Use boiler  for main part of washing and large  granite kettles for the rest.]   Add  soap to watetr and place clothes in  vessels, being sure clothes   aro well  covered.

JUNIORS DIP TO SENIORS.  Flag etiquette is, in fact, strict-  .y observed by captains of vessels,  for by its means they are able toi  act in a courteous and polite man-!  ..er towards one another when onl  rhe high seas.   For instance, -when  two liners belonging to the same,  :<wners sight each other at sea they  hoist flags immediately, and in pas-!'  . ng the junior captain always dips;  his ensign  to  the  senior  captain.:  Then, again, according to that nau-'  tical authority,  the editor of tha  "Shipping Gazette," if two liners .  belonging to different owners pass  2ach other at sea, and the captains   ���������������������������  happen to be acquainted, the mas-'  ler who realizes that he is the jun-.  ior invariably dips    to"  the other  ship.      i ���������������������������" "'     "   ',  TRAMP STEAMERS AND  LINERS.      -  In the ease   of a   British liner.  sighting a foreign liner there is no.

It is just a matter of courtesy, and,,.  often the commander of a British'  vessel will run up his ensign first.1 "���������������������������  A certain code of etiquette ex-!,  ists, too, between the tramp "steamer and the liner.   If a tramp,steamer approaches a liner, it is not cus-.;'  tomary for the latter to hoisVher,--'-  flags", unless the   tramp takes "the-'  first step.

INTERNATIONAL SIGNALLING,  -  In the case of men-o'-war,, all.  merchant ships, tramps, or liners  dip their ensign, whether British  or foreign. Signalling between  British warships and merchant  ships has received a good deal of  attention durng recent years,' and  both naval officers and mercantile  officers welcome an opportunity of.  .signalling,to each other.

In view of this magnificent  growth, the following from the" Toronto World regarding British Columbia's exhibit, is important :  "When it comes to Government  exhibits, they've all got to take their  hats off to the woolly west ; that is  the extreme west���������������������������British Columbia.  The exhibit from that Province is the  wonder of the Canadian National Exhibition, and the 'Queen Bee' of the  horticultural building.

The fruit growers of the Fraser  Valley have been beaten and beaten  year after year for the last number  of years and yet they will not get  together and organize for their common good. This year a firm, which  sent an agent to this district last  spring to assure the farmers that the  company he represented was a res?  ponsible one, has gone up, and left  a few of the growers in the lurch to  the extent of thousands of dollars.  Last year it was the exchange at  Revelstoke, and one year before it  was another firm, in Winnipeg. To  show the losses which some of the  growers are up against, wc have a  cheque in our possession, which was-  purchased for fifty cents. The cheque  is for 45 cents and represents fruit  shipped East to the value of about  $10. The cheque was purchased and  is kept as a curiosity. This is probably only one case of many similar  ones. There must be a cause for  such losses. The system is wrong,  and the fruit grower is being cheated  of the value of his crop, to benefit  some one else���������������������������not likely the' consumer.  This firm which sent the man to instil   confidence    in the growers,   has  left   some    small    amounts    unpaid  around   Mission,    which arc a   total  loss,    as    the   growers will probably  neve . receive five cents on the- dollar.  In union there is strength. We have  many examples of unions that are of  benefit to those belonging   to   them ;  needless to enumerate them. But the  farmer, the fruit grower, has not yet  learned the advisability of organizing  . for his own benefit.   It is beyond him  to grow and successfully market   his  product of fruit, and' the sooner this  is realized the.better conditions will  prevail,   and    the   consumer   in    the  prairie district will not have to pay  any more for his fruit, and probably  receive better value for his money.  The fruit industry is becoming one  of thc most important in this Province, and it is up to the farmers to  organize and receive all the benefit of  ^tl.i.e.ir__t.oLl__aucl_study-.=_Let_the^big-^fel=-  low get in and organize with the little fellow and both will receive the  benefit.���������������������������Fraser Valley Record.  There are thousands of acres of  agricultural, land held for timber  which do not carry enough timber to  build stage roads. There are other  thousands of acres held as coal lands  which contain nothing but volcanic  formations, where, of course, no coal  can exist. Then, again, there are  thousands of acres of agricultural  lands which should be available in  partially settled districts, which have  never been surveyed, and are unknown   even   to   the   Lands Depart-  ment. These lands may be searched  for and discovered by expert engineers who understand maps, lines and  stakes. But the ordinary land hunter  without such expert assistance has  very little chance of locating it. Even  if he does find it the sinister suspicion sometimes arises that he will be  humbugged and kept off it until some  favorite of the Government agent or  the lands department has had a  chance to look it over. In that event  he may be told it is timber land and  hot available for purchase. Such  instances'have occurred quite recently.���������������������������Bruce,  in  Saturday Sunset.

Through the rose-colored pane shines  'a glory  By   which   the    vast shadows   are  stirred,  But I pine   for the .spirit and splendor  That painted the wing of the bird.  The organ rolls    down its groat   anthem,  . With the soul of a song it is blent,  But for me, I am sick for tiie singing  Of one little song that ii; .sp._.t.  The voice of thc curate is gentle,  ".No     sparrow    shall    fall   to   the  ground,"  But the    poor,   broken wing on   the  maiden  Is mocking the merciful sound.  Close and sweet is the breath of the  lilies  Asleep on the altar of prayer,  But my soul is   athirst for the fiag-  rance  Far out in the bountiful air.

Few people in   the west realise the  magnificent proportions to which the  Toronto Fair has grown.   The Toron-  .to Fair . has   become   so   great that  only   those   who visit it   can realize  its extent.   "It is generally admitted  by Americans,"said   Air. Annable, in  discussing the matter,   "who visit it  to be the greatest annual fair on the  continent.   In  this connection I may  say that one of the things which impressed me most   about the fair was  the  number  of   Americans who visit  it.   Outside    of   the   Toronto people  who attended thc fair this season 25  per cent, of the others were from the  United    States.   These    people came  from    Pennsylvania,   Ohio, Iowa,  all  parts    of New   York,   and also from  other parts of thc republic.   An idea  of    the   fair's    importance    may    be  gained from the fact that in the two  weeks    that   it was in progress this  year   it was   visited by over 800,000  people, while the Seattle world's fair  which    has   been    in   progress   since  June 1, had, up to   a   few days ago,  or in three and a half months, been  visited by   some   3,000,000.   The largest day's attendance at the Toronto  fair this year was 150,000, while the  largest number that has attended the  Seattle fair in any   one day since it  opened has been only 117,000."  winter suit  Call and See them  Fresh Groceries and Vegetables always in stock  FRESH BREAD DAILY  The Home of the Old-Timer  and the abode of the New-  Comer.

A Preachment  for Live Man  and Woman  NO man is fitted to/, do"  for others .who- fails to do  for'himself.    No man can rise above his fellows  unless he tills his own   fields.   He   cannot help  others unless he first helps   himself.   The master man  is his own builder; others   .nay,    in  a   measure, bring  him materials to enter the construction of his building,  yet he must choose for himself what materials- he shall  use.   The divine gift to, man Is the desire and purpose  of caring for himself.   All others may flee to him with  . trophies from foreign shores of time or the gifts of past  eternities,  and  unless he' has been   a  true lover, of his  own life, how can he appreciate the gifts?   What is the  use to place pearls before   swine!   No   man can appreciate life unless he first   appreciates   himself.. His own  personal being, his life and   his  .purpose   should be so  near to him.   Some people stay at   one  place and'live  at   another.   Man should.live with   himself   in the line  of   self-investigation, self:dec.ision and   self-building ; he  alone is responsible for the building   of his- own house.  In order to command respect   man   must   first respect  himself; the respectful is /fitted tp extend   to others a  help In time1 of need.   Tbe world is not so much in need  of bread for the physical life as it is in need of viands  ' for the mental  and the divine.   No   man need go hungry, in either relationship; if he   first   feeds himself he  will be. more in re idiness   to   render to the dependent  their due.   The string man, the  manly  man, the fully  equipped   man, the man   who does   things, is the  man  who has been made strong by the use   of his own powers.   Such   a   man receives   good   from   every way of  truth.   A, man must possess before  he   can give.. Why  ask the cripple to walk, or the weak to carry the load,  or the dead live mean to stand in the   front of battle!  The cripple would fall, the .weak would faint, while the  dead.live man would.be several paces in the. rear.

The Winnipeg Exposition committee has received, a very encouraging  report of the-- publicity campaign  made .'by the committee at the Toronto Exhibition through the agency  of the Exposition publicity department. In this work, the Exposition  committee joined forces with the city  of Winnipeg and the industrial bureau of the city, thus accomplishing  the desire of all three departments  at a reduced cost for each, and in a  manner, that was highly effective for  the Exposition,,, Winnipeg and Western Canada.  In a smaller way, the work done  at the Toronto Exhibition is a forecast of what will be accomplished for  Canada by the holding of an Exposition such as it is proposed to hold  at   Winnipeg,  in   1912.    More   than  opportunity as will be afforded by a  big International Exposition, to  come to Canada and see for themselves the country about which they  have heard much or little���������������������������as the  case may be���������������������������and in which they have  a very strong interest. It would be  a pity, indeed, if so excellent a  chance to secure an inflow of desirable settlers, and of capital, into Canada shall fail of its fruition because  of shortsightedness or by the practice of false economy.  Reports received from time to  time from the Seattle fair, indicate  that the Pacific Coast Exposition  will be a financial success, as well as  a good thing for advertising the  country. The daily attendance thus  far is reported as having maintained  the excellent average of twenty-five  thousand paid admissions. One ticket office in an inconspicuous Atlantic Coast city is known to have  sold one hundred and twenty-five tickets to the Seattle exposition, and  this item of information sheds a deal  of light upon the manner in which  such an event is viewed by the-general public even when it is located.- so  far away as the distance from the  Atlantic to the Pacific. Prom this,  it may be argued with-all fairness,  that an exposition of Canada's resources, held in Central Canada, may  even prove to be a success financially  as it cannot fail to be as a means of  attracting and fixing attention and  capital upon the Dominion at large  and the West in particular.  POOLING   THE PLIES.  300,000 pieces of literature dealing  with Winnipeg ; and the west, were  given, out to people who visited the  Winnipeg booth, and personal information was furnished to a very large  number of enquirers-about the west.  The plain' lesson. to' be taken from  the- experience of the Exposition publicity department at. the -Toronto fair  is-that very great interest exists in  Canada among'- the people of other  countries and that these people and  those ' of Eastern Canada have a  sharp interest in the West, and  that nothing will serve to promote  and, increase this interest as much as  an exposition .to which the people of  all parts can gather -with comparative ease, and from which they may  be sent about the country to see it in  a thorough manner.  This experience of the publicity department of the Exposition committee shows, too, that there are thousands of people awaiting just such an  In order to rid the house of the few  flies which straggle past the screen  a simple but ingenious method is  described as follows in Everywhere:  Near the tops of the screen doors  and window screens, punch several  holes from the inside with some instrument about the size of a lead  pencil thus . leaving slightly funnel-  shaped apertures, having a rough,  jagged edge on the outside. This  renders it impossible for the flies to  enter through these holes, while the  flies which have strayed into the  house the first time 'they light on one  of the screens crawl to the upper part  and, seeing these holes, imagine  there is some - place where they. are  not wanted on the other side, and  out they go. In this manner it is  said a house can be kept perfectly  free from flies, if one uses reasonable  care. .,.<-,-  You take no chances when you buy a  McCLARY'S FAMOUS KOOTENAY  RANGE. /   .    .   ,  For perfect baking and simplicity of  working parts, they have no equal, and ~  will last a life time.

Local Agent NOTES AND COMMENTS  Almost universally the- knowledge  of how to sav. enters into the  modern formula for success and the  question of method and ways and  moans to saving is open to discussion. If "keeping" every possible  piece of money coming into one's  possession may be miserliness, there-  must be some phaso of saving that  ia reprehensible, it is one of the  concomitants of business that a  certain element of risk is involved.  That business man who refuses to  accept the gage no longer classes  with the modern man of business,  Competition for entrance to business opportunities is sharp enough  to make risk inevitable in the venture. What, then, is possible for  the young man who has just enough  to frighten him? The young man  who through the hard process of  saving succeeds in acquiring money  beyond his years and experience of  life, is more handicapped by it than  , benefited. Venturesomeness by nature belongs to youth. It is the impulse which, exercised and modified  and directed by experience, tends  t-o develop individuality and character. In all men it has been remarked that possession of wealth  has a tendency to inspire conservatism. The rich radical is almost unknown. If possession in this matter  affects men of already ripened age  and experience, bow much more  influence must we expect of it upon  the young man, precocious beyond  hi3 years ?  Most men grown to maturity and  looking back on their boyhood and  early manhood are agreed that they  "didn't make the most of their opportunities." Of course they  didn't, being normal. They took  occasion to learn the lesson of foolishness while young and when in a  business sense it cost the least.  On thc other hand observation has  shown scores of young men, obsessed by the desire to save, "make  this most" of their youth, with thc  result that they never experienced  that youth which nature intended  and which in the end left them old  and fossils caricatures of men. That  capacity for savi ig, even for a certain fixed purpose, is something to  be inculcated in .lie normal boy by  the slow process of discipline. To  save on the wide, general principle  that some day his savings may be  necessary, is a lesson that the young  man himself finds . hard to learn.  That normal young man, strong  and optimistic in his youth, finds it  hard fo anticipate a" "rainy day."  To the extent that it is forced upon  him, he must sacrifice youth itself.  Can you imagine a neighborhood  of boys, schooled to careful saving  of every penny finding its way to  thorn, having social relations in the  sense that youth seeks them? It is  impossible. However sociability  nuiy bo possible among norma!  children, without .the necessity of a  penny to spend, it is a dwarfed,  distorted, unreal tiling when among  them the principle of miserliness is  the rule. It requires a sound, ripened judgment in a man fo decide  when and whero and how much iu  save, even after the necessity for  saving something has been forced  upon him. For iu tho last analysis  tlio whole principle of saving in  modern life is a force measure,  growing out of human selfishness.  "Can I afford this?" ia one of the  commonest of nil personal inquisitions and at the same time one of  thc hardest of all questions to  answer wisely. "Wasting at the  tpigot and saving at thc bung" is  one of the old, old similes which  Approximates the meat of tlie whole  question of saving. Each man must  ask himself how much and when and  and where he shall save. But wisdom and experience must dictate  the satisfactory answer.  SURE ENOUGH.  "You must not interrupt me when  I am speaking, Ethel."  "Why, that's the only time 1 can  interrupt you, marna."  WAS QUEER HOSPITALITY  MOW   A   RULER   OF   ARABIA  TREATED 111S VISITORS.  Emir    Fleeced    Travelers ��������������������������� Took  Wiilches,  Revolver,  and  Compasses.  Of the curious ideas of hospitality held by some of the natives of  that wild country lying between  l.ngland and Damascus two travelers, Capt. Butler and Capt. AyK  mer, tell in the Geographical Magazine: "'We found Feysul Ibn Rash id (a minor ruler of Arabia) sitting in a low room, the roof of  which was supported by wooden pillars. All rou d tho sides of the  room were spread carpets, on which  sat his vizers ami members of his  court. He is a man of 3. years,  with a dark, pointed beard, good,  regular features, but eyes that are  cold and cruel, and he has a nervous, fidgety manner, and was all  the time arranging his abba (cloak)  and combing and curling his moustache and beard and-admiring himself in a small, cheap looking-glass  that hung just behind him. Above  his head on the wail hung his silver-  mounted walking stick and a sword,  the sheath of which was also covered in silver. He was very richly  dressed.  FLEECED OF EVERYTHING.  "On our arrival at the house  placed at our disposal we congratulated ourselves on our good fortune in having such a cordial welcome, but we were speedily disillusioned. We had not been there  more than five minutes when Fcy-  sul's head slave, a richly dressed  personage, called Dahm, came to  tell us that the emir would not take  our camels or our money, as he had  plenty of both, but that he would  like things of European make or of  interest that wc happened to have.  This was only too true and, during  our five days' stay there, there was  a continual procession of slaves  and hangers-on from the castle demanding things for the emir and  hi.s viziers and favorites, and demanding them in such a way that  it was impossible for us to refuse.  At last we had practically nothing  . _ any value left, having been fleeced of watches, revolver, compasses, various clothes and other articles of our kit.  WELL TREATED BY EMIR.  "Apart from this system of more  or less polite robbery, we were well  treated by the emir and had our  food sent us from the castle by hini.  About three or four times a day  we had a royal command from him  and used to go up to the castle and  drink many cups of coffee arid excellent sweet tea with him and talk  about his country and Europe. He  was always very genial on these occasions and I honestly think he considered he was treating us very  well in not taking all we had and  turning us adrift to die in the desert."  FEW I--..T-.IA>;l/l._) BARBERS.  A  Wri.e-  Says Jle   Hub Only   _Lef  Two or Three.  Of course, left-handed persons  are scarce any way, said the man  who carries his habits of observation even into the harbor's chair,  but they are mighty scarce among  barbers; in fact, 1.-have-scon but  two or three in my experience.  I5ut you arc sure to notice it  when you flu find one. He does  just as efficient work, bill, it is the  way he does it that attracts your  notice.  The barber, as a rule, stands at  the right of the customer while  -.having him, linking little trips to  tho back and to the left only when  necessary. Naturally, 1. suppose,  the left-handed barber does just the  opposite; he stands most of the.  time at your left.  For that reason you won't fin 1 a  left-handed barber in lhe middle of  a line of barbers. His chair has to  stand at one end or the other so  that he won't bump into the right-  handed one next to him.  Like most left-handed persons,  his right hand is more dexterous  than the left hand of right-handed  persons usually ia. He shaves you  with either hand, but prefers the  left. He strops a razor just as a  right-handed ono does, however,  and that is about the only point of  similarity.  WEARING A NEW STRAW HAT.

SLEEP ..IN ESKIMO TENTS  AS COMFORTABLE AS A STEAM-  HEATED HOUSE.  Tenia in the Arctic Regions Under  Snow   Becomes    Unbearably  Warm.  Along the whole coast of Arctic  America Eskimos or evidences of  their former existence, arc found.  Judging from the abandoned houses  and villages they were once numerous along the north shore of Alaska,  But now their numbers are being  fast r.educed by the contagious diseases brought in by white men,  against which they have developed  no immunity.  At Point Barrow, where a few  white men have been engaged in  whaling and trading for a quarter  of a century, and where there are  also a missionary and school  teacher, is still a village of .00  or 300 Eskimos. Another settlement of much less size has gathered  at Herschel island, where the whale  ships have long wintered. In all  the 500 miles of. coast between these  two villages there are hardly a  dozen Eskimos. Inland perhaps a  couple of dozen families live in  tents and follow the caribou from  place to place.  LIVE IN ESKIMO TENTS.  Formerly both native, and white  men constructed houses out of snow  blocks in which to sleep while  travelling in winter time. Occasionally snow houses are still used,  but since' it has become possible  to secure canvas or boat drill from  the traders, a tent is preferred.  I have spent months in different  kinds of tents and find the one used  by the Eskimos by far the most  comfortable and safe, writes a  traveler. Willow sticks about 10  feet in length are stripped of their  bark, bent into a curve and allowed  to dry. Fifteen or twenty of these  light curved sticks arc stuck up in  ���������������������������the snow and lashed into a hemispherical form over which two covers  of light boat drill aro thrown.  When snow is shovelled around  thc margin and well packed down,  this low, round tent will stand any  wind that-blows. The snow floor  is covered with caribou skins on top  of which the sleeping bags are  placed. There is plenty of drift  wood along, the rivers, so thc  traveller need but carry a small  sheet-iron stove to cook with and  to heat the tent.  AIR SPACE PROTECTION.  The air space between the covers  makes a great protection ��������������������������� against  thc outside cold, so that while cooking a meal the tent often becomes  unbearably hot even with the doors  open. At night after the fire is out  the bodily heat from tho people  sleeping in such a tent will raise  the interior temperature over 50  degrees (Fahrenheit) above that  outside.  Hardly any frost forms upon the  walls and one is able to sleep comfortably with the head outside of the  -b ag7="-_> n r i n gH-h e^w-o r-s t=g-a-l e-s=-t-h at=  blow on that coast, one can keep  thc tent warm and comfortable all  day, while reading or smoking at  one's case, and at night take off  one's clothes and sleep with as much  comfort and safety as in a steam-  heated house.  PERMANENT HOUSES.  Having had this good night's rest,  hc can face thc next day's cold  with greater chci.milncss. Contrast this tent with those often  used by polar explorers, in which  they lie ;.w'akc most of the night,  buttoned inside a wet sleeping-  bag listening to the flapping of the  tent aiul wondering how soon everything will blow to pieces.  The permanent houses of the  natives are constructed of driftwood heavily sodded over. Formerly they were heated with blubber  lamps, but now small stoves have  taken the place of thc primitive  apparatus. They keep the houses  too hot for comfort, at least for  white man, but the Eskimos strip  to thc waist and do not mind it.  Mnay times the temperature was  found to lm over 90 degrees Fahrenheit, and once a clinical tbe-  mometer, left in a house where the  writer was attending a sick boy,  was found to register 108 degrees  Fahrenheit, the highest temperature it was capable of indicating.  Iii the summer these houses become  damp, so thc people move out doors  into tents.  DRANK OUT OF "BOOTS'  FOUND AN OPENING.  "I started out on tne theory that  thc world had an opening for me,  and I went to find it." Did you  find it?" "Oh, yes.   I'm in a hole."  CURIOUS    RELICS     OF    THE  PAST IN ENGLAND.  The Old Leaf/ie.  Drinking Vessel,  "Black Jack," Resembled  v.  Boot.  ^ It is recorded that certain worthy  Frenchmen who visited England in  oho suite of Henrietta Maria, the  Queen of Charles 11., returned to  their homes with tho traveller's  tale that the English habitually  "drank out ot their boots."  Certainly th. old leather drinking vessel known us tho black jack  bears some considerable resemblance to a boot. Indeed, an ex-  amplo in existence in thc present  day is traditionally said to have  been made from a boot worn at  the battle of Marstoi. Moor. The  jack in question bears the following inscription ������������������������������������������������������ "The gift cf George  Bartcram to Abigail,  1683."  OLD-FASHIONED HOMES..  There are still some good old-  fashioned homes where homebrewed ale is served in these curious relics of the past. At Stone-  leigh Abbey, at Castle Ashby, and  at several historic houses of the  Midlands they are yet to be met  with���������������������������and drunk out of. At  Chelsea hospital the veteran heroes  also use small jacks from which  to refresh then v.  Whether or not desirable from  a sanitary or epicurean point of  view, the black jack has certainly  interesting aspects for the antiquary. Many .specimens are indeed  handsome, silver-mounted ornaments, decorated with thc arms  and monograms of tho owner, and  evidently article, of importance to  be set before an honored guest;  and mightily proud, no doubt, were  their proprietors _f such possessions.  Whether we may still quaff our  draft of "spicy nut-brown ale"���������������������������  provided wc be visitors at Powers-  court Castle���������������������������from the very jack  which Oliver Cromwell used, may  be a debatable matter, but it is  quite possible that the great leather  drinking vessel preserved there  formerly belonged to that important personage  It bears the inscription, "Oliver  Cromwell, 1653,. lord protector of  England, Scotland and Ireland."  In addition, it- is decorated with  the arms of the commonwealth, and  is heavily mounted in silver, and  stands 20 inches in height. Some  years ago a specimen very similar  was disposed of at Christie's fetching $180.  18TH CENTURY JACK.  At South Kensington is a good  specimen of the- ISth century jack,  which it will be seen; is manufactured as fa*' as the body and  handle are concerned, from ono  piece of leather, whilst thc bottom  and rim are sewn on.  It is decorated in color with two  crests and the helmet of a knight  or baronet, and may.possibly have  once been in the possession of Sir  John=S-yXv-estei^S-Qiith,_a_Yoj_v_Li.re__  Baronet, who married, in 17GJ,  Henrietta, sister and heir of Fred-  crick Dodsworhh, of Thornton  Wat-lass.  .._ *.  BULL FIGHTERS SUFFER.  Spanish Season Il_.s Been Unusual  ly Di...'isl..,,ous.  From the comir.i-._icemcnl of thc  current bull-fight season, April J2  last, to the present time, five bullfighters have bcoi. killed and one  hundred and eleven seriously injured in Spain.  These unprecedented figures have  aroused heated discussion in many  newspapers, the opinion being expressed that the admission of young  and inexperienced performers to  tho arena is largely to blame for  ihe frequency of accidents.  It is suggested that this be remedied by thc establishment of a  school of bull-fighters. Those who  argue thus forget that even the  most celebrated matadors, such as  Bombita, Machaquita and Gaona,  have been among the victims.  The scenes in the arena are daily  becoming more ferocious and the  bull-fighters less skillful, It is understood that thc Government will  introduce severe regulations applying to thc bull rings in the workmen's  compensation   bill.  There will be a great public demonstration at Barcelona to demand the abolition of bull-fighting,  but such a measure would provoke  serious riots in ether places,  INCREASE OF 14,00,0000  _������������������,  (J BEAT BRITAIN FOR HALF A  CEiSTUBY.  ��������������������������� o  The Birth   and  Death   H;i1<������������������_   Are  Loivcr, Taxes and Expenses  Higher.  The British Board of Trade has  just issued a blue book containing  a mass of interesting statistics covering English life for a period of  a little more than  half a century.  In the middle of 1903 thc inhabitants of the United Kingdom  numbered 44,539,593, an increase of  14,000,000 since 1851. Thc growth  of the population of England, Scotland and Wales, and the remarkable decrease in Ireland, are shown  in the following table:  For every 100 persons living in the  year 1851 there wcro in 190S:  In England      198  In  Wales.  187  In   Scotland 167  In Ireland     67  Tjhus while thic population of.  England and Wales has nearly  doubled in the fifty-seven .years,  that of Ireland has decreased by 33  per cent.  The birth rate a thousand of  population has steadily fallen from.  35.1 in 1861 to 26.3 in 1907, while  the death rate has fallen in the  same period from 22.6 to 15. One  cause of the declining birth rate is  obviously the falling oil of the proportion of married people to the  population. In 1850 thc number of  married persons was 17.2 for every  1,000 inhabitants, in 1909 it had declined to 15.8.  Other figures show plainly how.  thc population has tended during  the last fifty years to concentrate  itself. in London and the great  cities. For every 100 persons living  in 1851 in London there were 203  in 1908. In the eighty-four largest  urban areas the growth in the same  period has been from 100 to 282.  Put in general terms, in 1851 the  population of incorporated boroughs  and other, urban districts amounted  approximately to 9,000,000, or.50  per cent, of thc total population of  England and Wales.- By 1881 this  urban population had grown to  17,600,000, or 68 per cent, of the  aggregate population, and by 1901  it had grown to 25,000,000, or 77 per  cent! of tlie aggregate population.  The improvement in the conditions of child life in England is  strikingly shown in the following  table:  Death  rate  a    thousand  living  in  England and Wales.  1S57      1907  At ages up to 5 years 67.8     40.9  At ages 5 to 10 years 7.8       3.4  At ages 10 to 15 years 4.7       2.0  The mortality from nearly all tho  principal diseases ha_ materially  declined.

In view of the increase in population and unemployment and tho  enormous growth of public expenditure, it is not surprising to find that  the* burden of total indebtedness  has also increased enormously. The  amount of total debt has increased  between 1874 and 1906 by 309 per  cent., or 420 .per cent., if tho debt  of the Metropolitan Water Board  be taken into consideration. In  1874 thc amount of total debt was  ������������������92,820,000, an average of ������������������3 18  shillings 3d. per head of population.

In the year 1904 there were issued  _n Canada $34,249,247 of bonds, by  (the Dominion and Provincial Governments Municipalities and by our  Public, Utility and larger industrial  Corporations. Our continued expansion has made the yearly requirements of enormous proportions. Tho Canadian Bond issues  for various purposes in 1908  amounted to $196,357,411, while authentic records show the value of  bonds put upon the market during  the current year to date, approximately $170,000,000.

SENTENCE SERMONS.  Self-denial is self-discovery.  There are few weeds in a busy  life.  The only way to save seed is to  sow it.   .  Self-conquest is the secret of all  great courage.  The next worst thing to having  no friends is to be without foes.  There are no innocent bystanders  when an injustice is being done.  Vou do not preserve the faith by  keeping tho faithful in a pickle.  All the slaves of lust are proud  of their  collars  branded   "Liberty."  Wo lose any great attainment  when we try to turn it into a resting place.  Culture alone cannot make character, but character alone gives  culture.

There was a   lawyer in B   whose name was Strange, and it  was Eaid that never since he had  started in hist ���������������������������, profession had he  told a lie. But one day he died,  and a collection was raised among  those who knew him for the erection of a memorial stone. After  they got it a dispute arose as to  what would be the most suitable  inscription to put on it. They all  had something to say except one  individual, who did not seem to  take any interest in the matter, but  nothing seemed suitable. At last  the person referred to was asked  what he thought about it,  "Well," said he, "I have some-  thing~short and sweet. How's this:  'Here lies the body of a lawyer who  never told a lie.' "  "But people won't know, who he  was," the, protested.  "Well," he oaid, "when,people  see that inscription, they will "say,  ''That's'Strange,' awd'so it is."  LILLIPUTIAN CHINA.  Interesting   Origin   of   Miniature  Sets by Famous Makers.  Do you know those miniature dinner and tea services and odd pieces  of china bearing the marks of historic makers and most exquisitely  fashioned that are preserved in  many old families . This lilliputian  china had an origin that is-not perhaps generally known. The leading china makers a century or two  ago were in the habit of sending  it as Christmas presents to the  children of their best customers.  A.number of these sets and pieces  will be exhibited in London toward  the middle of next month, says the  Lady's Pictorial, and they will be  well worth seeing by those who care  for rare china.  It is quit������������������ possible that a collection of lilliputian furniture will be  exhibited at the same time. These  tiny pieces are as complete in all  details as furniture of the normal  size, but they are no larger than  the things you would expect to iind  in ,a first rate doll's house.  They were made originally not  for the delectation of the young  but as samples for the young man  who travelled the provinces in the  interest of some firm of furniture  makers in London. In those days  there were no leviation catalogues  piofusely illustrated and a journey from a remote country district  to the show-rooms in London was  a formidable undertaking before  we had railways and motor cars.  75 for  $G2 00  25    "  9C 00  65    "  80 00  16    "  9 50  20    "  13 50  23    "  14 50  To Be Sold at Leas Than Manufacturers' Prices.

Although not credited with any  high degree of intelligence, the turtle when about to deposit its eggs  exhibits considerable cunning. It  scoops out a hole as if to prepare  a repository for its eggs, but in order to delude birds and other enemies the turtle throws the sand  again into the'hole, leaving the surface rough and waddles oft' to another spot, where it repeats the  process. Sometimes this is done  three times and eventually the eggs  are laid in an excavation within a  few yards of the 6'ham nest, the surface being smoothed and flattened  down.

The pill mass is so compounded  ihat their strength and effectiveness  '<t preserved and the pills can be  carried anywhere without fear of  losing their potoncy. This is a  quality that few pills possess. Some  pills lose their power, but not so  with Parmelee's. They will maintain their freshness and potency  for a long time.  FATHER'S MISTAKE.

He  placed    35   pounds    of    prune  plums and an equal amount of  crab apples in an outhouse one  day  last  week and closed the  door.   In the morning all were  missing.  Investigation found the  fruit carefully stored away in the  sawdust in the loft,., above the  room.   A rat had carried them,  one by one, from the floor through  a hole to the loft.   There was  also a piece of harness there, and  Dick doesn't know whether Mr.  Rat was contemplating starting  a riding school or a fruit stall.  Good bread, 4 loaves for 25c.

Deeton, a Monoline expert, of Vernon, was in Enderby  this week attending the accouchement of a Monoline in the office  of the Walker Press.  Geo. R. Lawes is packing 25  boxes of choice apples locally  grown, to be included in the provincial exhibit to be made this  fall in London, Eng. The exhibit  will Uave here about the 8th of  October.  Master Wilfrid Small, a youthful violinist, first surprises then  pleases with his clear tone. His  touch and technique are rarely  found even among the older mus-  icans.���������������������������Daily Tribune, Tacoma,  Wash. '08.  W. H. Hutchison is building a  second story on his blacksmith  and machine shop to make room  for his stock of buggies and cut-  ers.. He received an order this  week for half a carload of sleighs  for the A. R. Rogers Lumber Co.  It reported that Earl & Russell,  Armstrong contractors, were the  successful bidders on the City  hall and Methodist' church to be  erected in Enderby this fall, although the city hall matter will  not be finally settled until Monday night's meeting of the council. The successful tender for  the city hall is said to be $3,725  and for the church building $5,-  800. Local builders did not tender on the city hall and the successful tender on the church was  $400 below the lowest local tender.  R. Mowat has received an order from the Coldstream Fruit  orchard at Vernon for 100 pounds  of his Wealthy apples to be exhibited at  the "Spokane  Apple  Show.   For color and uniformity  of size these apples  beat anything yet shown .in the Valley.  Mr. Robt. Waddell took a sample  plate to Vernon' last week and  put  them up against the best  they could produce and the Enderby fruit carried off the palm.  Mr. Mowat's Wealthy and Blenheim   Orange   apples  and  his  Ontarios, surpass anything yet  shown.  Wilfrid  Small,   the boy violinist   on  Thursday night under the auspices of  the band, came    away delighted and  astounded.     Knowing   that the   performer was a fourteen year old   boy  those     critically     inclined    expected  technique     aud    they    found      both  technique   and   taste.   They expected  brilliance    and   they found brilliance1  and soul combined.   He has a pleas-;  ing, boyish manner on the stage, and i  so far has escaped any stage tricks.  When    he starts   to   play he isolates  himself and becomes part of his violin.  In praising the violinist, the accompanist must not be overlooked.  Just how much of the enjoyment of  the evening was due to Prof. Hook's  sympathetic work would be difficult  to decide. Sufficient to say that he  was perfectly in sympathy with" the  violinist.  STRAY THOUGHTS  While you vacillate, Opportunity  speeds on to eternity.  What are passions? The'floods  and conflagrations of the soul.  On the Speedway of Life, let your  brain regulate the speedometer.  To be audacious is to run down  others with the motor of our desires.  A sharp pen catches and spatters  ink on the snowy page; so does a  sharp tongue.  Live thoughts, helpful ideas, are  sermons flung broadcast to the four  winds of heaven.  What are swords, guns, and cannons without hearts of steel to place  them in action?    Merely junk.  He who lives well and for the best,  scatters the salt of condemnation on  the straying weeds of thought.  To be illiterate even in this advanced generation is not necessarily  to be ignorant, although Illiteracy is  the father.of Ignorance.  TORONTO  SOCIALISM   IN   THE OKANAGAN.

This is an agricultural district     that   is advertised  as the Garden of B. C.   No doubt it  is, but that only goes to show that  the C.P.R.  and other capitalist concerns make a larger  rakeoff here than  elsewhere, for, if all that the people  'owe^w cre^subtKact^d^ffo-nwli^'They  own,    they   would,  I  am    informed,  be in the hole.   Of course, many hope  to become fairly well to do, and are  so busy trying   to   grasp the bubble  that they have to see it burst before  they can be   awakened.   Nevertheless  the   Socialist    propaganda    will    be  pushed forward,   and   we will poll a  strong vote and start in the following day to strengthen    our position.  Considerable jockeying and side-stepping is taking    place in the two old  parties, and it   looks   as if the Liberals will funk.
