Norcross, seventeen years  ago a teacher in the Enderby  public school, now managing editor of the Vancouver World, was  in Enderby last ^week endeavoring to interest the city in a write-  up to appear in the big anniversary number 'to be brought out in  September.  The. illness that took Schoolmaster McDonald to the hospital  eight weeks before' the close of  the school year, played havoc  with* the students who were preparing for the entrance exams.  The examination papers were returned this week, and show only  three having passed. The fortunate ones are: Florence Nichol,  Emma Carlson and Stewart Glen.  The social given by .the Meth:  odist ladies ��������������������������� last Friday evening  on the fine stretch, of green at  Mr. Greyell's home^ was a splendid success: 'The: music by'the  b������������������nd added much to the pleasures  of the evening,1 and the artistic  lighting of the grounds was also  a pleasing feature..  tie-delivery system, and guarantees every vessel .'of milk, leaving  the dairy to,"^be. scientifically  purified, aerated and cooled.^ ' -..'  ���������������������������������������������������������������������������������*. - ' ���������������������������',.���������������������������'.,  We owe an apology-to the mem-;  bers of,the street improvement  committee."

C.  i. ;     '��������������������������� ?Z      "  Pa says:' "It is right and proper ahvays to say whatyov,  think, providing you say it to yourself."  -^^^~  FROM ONE MAN'S POINT OF VIE Wi  WE have profound respect for the calm,  sane attitude of our readers in the  storm of the passion play that has swelled  the columns of this publication during the,  past three weeks. We doubt if a writer  ever had.so much goodjmd bad said about  "him^iOo^small^aTcircre, and by so many  and so few people, all apparently right and  yet no two of the same mind. Naturally  an editor is the last person to hear anything, for or against himself. If he is sincere, he speaks true of conditions as he  finds them, regardless of results. No doubt  .much has been said on both' sides, that  has had very little bearing on the question  at issue; but this is the case in every newspaper controversy.' The pleasing part of it  all, to the.editor, is the quiet, sincere loyalty shown by so many to the paper and  what it has stood for. We never have  questioned the sincerity of the three men  who concluded to stop their paper; nor will  they question the sincerity of the ten men  who, unsolicited, have added their names  to the subscription list. Stopping, three  paid-up subscriptions does not prove the  editor is wrong; adding ten new paid-up  subscriptions does not prove the editor is  right. It simply provesL that there are  more people who desire to see clear, candid, open discussion than there arexwho  wish to suppress clear, candid, open discussion. It means more, too. It means  that Enderby is to see an awakening! The  ties that have bound so long are to be  broken. The limiting of our sphere of action and work; of thought and development; of aspiration and accomplishment, is  to be discontinued. There is to be growth,  growth, growth! Moving time is at hand!  Moving forward toward a larger and fuller  community life.   We see indications of it  onall hands. .Petty differences of thought  and opinion < cannot���������������������������will not���������������������������block .the  way. .

ONE cannot realize the magnitude of the  obstacles the fruit raisers of British  .Columbia have' to confront when, they' enter  the Winnipeg market, for instance, in competition with the older fruit sections to the  south, until he knows something of-.the  conditions prevailing, here as well as there.  In the first place, the commission houses  want fruit���������������������������train loads of it. We saw a  report the other day showing that just one  commission house in Winnipeg was prepared to handle 800 carloads of apples this  season. This same firm is handling the  earlier fruits in like proportions. Most of  the fruit handled is coming from the  south���������������������������from the orchards capable of supplying the quantities needed. Here is where  British Columbia falls down. We want  more fruit. Until we produce the quantity'  we cannot hope to supply the demand. It  is like a boy going to market with a basketful to interest buyers who look only at carloads. Not until our fruit men are prepared  to put a carload on the market where now  they put a barrelful, can they hope to control, or make any impression upon, even the  Winnipeg market, and this is only a small  field. It isn't a question of can we raise  the quality; this is, conceded. The question is, will we raise the quantity? More  fruit, and still more fruit is the solution.  of a possible 550. '!

Newberry was  held to answer to the charge of  assault with intent to do bodily  harm to Thos. Brash,    it  is all  the result of Mr. Newberry closing an old road that has run to  the Brash place through the property recently purchased by Newberry.     The  question at issue  seems to be on what authority the  road was closed.   Road Superin-.  tendent  Lang and Roadmaster%  Hancock both testified that such  authority was given'the defendant,   though the road had not  been officially closed.   Mr. Brash  testified to having gone over the  road just to see what Newberry  would do.   When he came to tHe  bars he knocked them down and  led his horse through.   Mr. Newberry ordered him off his land.  There was some pulling and hauling and Brash went clown with  Newberry on top,.   When Mr. ?  Brash got up he went back into  the road and  went around the   ,  property.   The  case  was postponed until Saturday,  when the  defense will be heard.  *���������������������������"*"_��������������������������� I THE ENDERBY PRESS AND WALKER'S WEEKLY.  nt.

Man fell (Gen.  :.rd,. vi. verse), and after the fall God  provided hini with the source of knowl-  edgcWhis is the source of knowledge,  the Holy Bible. On turning into the  title page I believe 1' saw in an earlier  edition that it was prepared under the  personal supervision of King James. It  was an arduous task, 'but when the  work .was completed God rewarded him  at once by enabling him to inscribe oil  the title page, "This is the authorized  version." It was ample reward for a  life of, toil; he could lie down on his  couch and rest in peace. Thc highest  reward that-man can attain for a life  of toil is a quiet conscience.  The first verse of the Bible is, "God  created the heavens and tho earth."  This is the foundation "of the creation.  Herbert .pencer gave ^definition of the  creation that was said'to be the weakest ever given by a man of ability; but  Herbert Spencer' did not take the Bible.  Had he taken tho Bible" he would have  given the strongest. When the authorized-, version was issued, it was to fill  the requirements of all times, of all  ages and all conditions. It was issued  at a time when the English language  was most terse and correct.���������������������������John Cox.

OVERTAXED NERVES  A DISTRESS SIGNAL  The Trouble Can Only be Cured by  Enriching the Blood Supply,,  "When your nervous system is exhausted the trouble makes itself evident in many ways. You feel always  fatigued and unfit for work. Severe  headaches distract you; your back is  weak; You sleep badly; your appetite  is uncertain; you are nervous and irritable, and-after an}- exercise you tremble  and perspire excessively. If the trouble  is not cheeked your case-goes -from bad  -to worse until you feel that your condition is hopeless and-that insanity is  threatened. ,  Your nerves arc calling for help. They  are starved because Ihey demand from  the blood more nourishment than it, can  supply. New rich blood is the secret  of. nerve-^strength and ' Dr.^ Williams'  I'ink Pills for Pale People cure nervous  disorders because they feed the weak,  exhausted nerves,' with'rich, red-blood.  The case of Mrs. Emma Hall, of Hamilton. Ont., .furnishes proof that Dr.  Williams'; Pink'.Pills will cure even the  most stubborn cases of nerve .exhaustion. Mrs. Hall was left a widow and  was forced to work in a mill to maintain herself and her two little children.  She bravely faced the battle of life,_  though she had never- had to conform  to such conditions before. , Notwithstanding the splendid spirit she displayed, the work played havoc -with a  delicate constitution, and some years-'  ago Mrs. Hall noticed signs' in herself  of a nervous collapse., She consulted "a  doctor, who gave her medicine ' and told  her__she "would' be all right in a few  day's." But relief did not comfe, and it  was finally a daily occurrence for-her  to faint^at her work. These fainting  spells quickly developed'into pronounced  hysteria and chronic, irritability,.- and  Mrs'.' Hall says that death' would have  been a relief. She consulted,several doctors, but got no help, and she felt that'  she was almost bordering on/insanity.  "In this condition she was advised to try  Dr. Williams' Pink Pills. Grasping 'at"  even the possibility-of help she decided'  to do so. After taking three boxes she  ..actually, found some^ improvement,- and  from that timc^n this improvement was  steady and increasing daily until after  a few "months "she felt -the. ^cure".was  complete. She says: "D .. Williams' Pink  Pills have-done"what' doctors" failed to  do and what I .myself thought'was impossible. \ They have fi-cd'me from the  terrible trouble''I suffered," and .jiny old  joy "in life has .been renewed." '/When  Mrs. Hall "began taking. Dr. Williams'  Pink Pills she weighed only one hundred  pounds,-while under her renewed; health  her weight'has increased to one hundred  and thirtv pounds. -   ,--  Dr. Williams' Pink Pills'can'be had  from'any dealer'in medicine or will be  sent by mail at 50 cents a box or six  boxes for $2.50 by The Dr. Williams'.

JULY 29, 1909  Valuable Assistance  LAST week we published  a letter from the Department of Agriculture signifying that it was the Provincial Government's intention  to assist all students desiring  to attend one of the eastern  Agricultural   Colleges from  this province, to the extent  of $50 for each term.     This  assistance is of the nature  that will be much appreciated  by the men who are prepared  to take advantage of it.    It  shows, too, how anxious the  government is to lend every  aid possible in preparing the  way  for   the    fuller    and  broader development of the  agricultural resources of the  province.  Another assistance which  should be of very great help  to our poultrymen arid stock  breeders, is the giving of  one-half the transportation  charges on stock and poultry  sent from B.C. to the Seattle  { Alaska-Yukon Exposition,  and the giving of assistance  tov/ards defraying the expense in the shipping of stock  from the east to B. C, particulars of which will.-be  found in another column of  this issue.  Onward Enderby  NEVER have Enderby's  prospects looked brighter  than now. Building on  really substantial lines is at  its commencement. The development ..of the District  about Enderby, is commencing on a broader basis, and  all are beginning to realize  that to bring the town and  district into its own, selfish  cliqueism and personal and  party jealousies must be  thrust aside, and the questions that make for advancement must be faced squarely  and settled as they should  be settled. The old, old way  of deciding disputed points,  -which���������������������������every���������������������������newcomer���������������������������has  been up against when he  has dared to question any  set policy or custom, and  which may be summed in  these oft-repeated words: "If  you don't like it, why don't  you move out," will "not go  any longer. There is no  reason, argument or judgment in the dog-in-the-manger attitude. We must DO  THE THING or make room  for others who will.  Unfair Criticism  any relation between the spiritual  religion of Christ and the sensual  passion is to lay one open to the  suspicion of being of unsound  mind. . . . We find it difficult to  discuss this question owing to its  absurdity. -  This reads very much like  an "inspired" criticism-. The  writer,  apparently,  has no  deeper conception of our editorial than a bull pup.   It  will be news to, the men and  women who have read our  publication  from  week   to  week to learn that since coming to Enderby "Mr. Walker  has  made    many    'foolish  breaks,'" etc.   Here is another: "We know he claims  to be a free-thinker"! Mercy  me! Drive the stake and get  the-fagots ready!    This is  an  awful thing!   A freethinker!   Pray, what IS  a  free-thinker!     The only  thing we ever have claimed  to be is a native born Canadian of Celt extraction; free  to eat meat or leave it alone;  free to work, laugh and play  with God a silent partner in  it all; free to go and come;  free to think independent of  clique,   pique,   priest    and  knave. Is 'this a free-thinker?  Then methinks the Man we  call our Elder Brother was  also a free-thinker.   By-the-  way, you will remember that  He was crucified by the ultra-  religious of His day.  We are in full accord with  the statement that ' 'to say  there is any relation between  the spiritual religion of Christ  and the sensual passion is to  lay one open to the suspicion  of being of unsound mind."  We know of only four people guilty of exhibiting this  apparent unsoundness of  mind: three of them stopped  their ^aper; the fourth writes  editorials on the Armstrong  Advertiser.    "Friend  Walker" never has said anything  that could be so construed by  a thinker capable of following a thought. The religious  passion is no more an evidence  of the Christ  spirit  to-day than it was when it  gleefully thrust Christ upon  the cross  and  nailed   him  there.   The religious passion  is no more an  evidence'of  the Christ spirit to-day than  it was in the dark days of  the Inquisition, when thousands were cruelly tortured  and finally killed by the man-  made Christian church. Men  and women who go to the  extremes  characteristic   of  the Holy Rollers, under the  religious passion, are no more  Christ-like than the woman  who, under the same passion,  gives her body to her "converted" Chinese lovers. This  is the religious passion.  To  mistake  it for  the   Christ  spirit, or a reflection upon  the Christ spirit,  is to exhibit woeful ignorance.  "We-find it difficult to discuss this question owing to  its absurdity." Certainly!  Just like the learned gentleman who "discussed it to  four times the length of the  editorial, and then folded his  thought in a sanctified napkin with these words: ' 'But  why pursue this matter further?. Most of your article  was unfit for publication, and  is unfit for public discussion"! Don't these "holier-  than-thou" fellows make you  smile!  Nothing hurts you if you  forget it. ~  <ipiTw Bui -,'wy*% ? ___f __u"ffl ���������������������������H'J*??*  I  1  JJr. ivi  brated  .  Cele-  Remedies  Royal Medicated Stock Food Co,  Vancouver, B.

HENRY, Vaneouver.B.CJJ7,  m  An Old Question  Editor The Enderby- Press:  Dear Sir:���������������������������I was amused recently to notice that the genial  and versatile editor of the "Armstrong Advertiser" has taken a  hand in the controversy now going on in your columns. More  power to his elbow!/ Is Saul-also  among the prophets!  , The question as to, whether extreme religious fervor does or  does not tend to arouse the amatory passions of mankind is not a  new one. Much has been written  and spoken on both sides. Some  years ago it was discussed at  great length in the columns of  the London (Eng.) "Times" and  during the disoussion certain  statistics were submitted. These  statistics I may say were never  disputed but wera accepted as  correct by both sides in the dispute, and to a large extent settled the question for that time at  least. ���������������������������.    ���������������������������  These statistics showed conclusively that every marked religious revival in a community  was invariably followed by a very  marked increase in the. number  of illegitimate children born,  and a like marked increase in the  number of charges of immorality  laid against the clergy., At the  same time crimes against property and against the person, such as  theft, assault, etc., showed.-a  marked decrease, at least during  the continuance of the revival. .  I hardly think the editor of the  "Advertiser" nor the Rev. Mr.  Gifford' are warranted inlaying  that your statement is absurd.  It is not absurd, but a proposition  that is admitted to be an' actual  fact by the vast majority of intelligent individuals who have  given it any consideration. Why  it should be so may be a mystery,  but if it is a fact why not accept  it.  There are more things in heaven and earth, Horatio  Than are dreamt of in your philosophy.   .  AgainrRev.. Mr. Gifford,may  shut his eyes to the case you  mentioned of the missionary in  this valley, but do we not know  this also to be a fact.   Redux.  Enderby, 26th July.  Books and Things  Editor The Enderby Press:   .  Dear Sir:���������������������������I see by your latest  issue that our friend Mr. W. A.  Gifford has still another form in  -which .to.manifest his f er_v_6r._that  of showing off what he thinks is  education, even that of book-  knowledge. Hecannothavebeen  much in -touch with men ,br he  would know that many of the  most successful men in all ages  could neither write nor read, yet  they were, educated with a real  education, for the true meaning  of the^wordjeducate is^to'educe;  to draw out or/develop by use  that 'which is within. Such is  what we call the self made man,  in other words, the' man who  allows the Divinity within to come  to the surface and manifest or  show itself in character or action  as well as in the flesh. Just as  an apostle spoke of Jesus Christ  as God���������������������������or properly speaking���������������������������  "Good manifest in the flesh."  It has always been the case that  the men who get to be great in  true wisdom as well as power  to do things are the men who  obey the injunctions or demands  that come from within themselves.       ,   ���������������������������     ,  .  It was the acts of the Apostles  carrying out in the physical the  demands of the Divinity within  tKat made them men to be remembered; it wasn't what they  read in books,. for if it were,  Luke, for instance,- would have|  been sent to doctor the bodies of  men, for that is what his book-  knowledge taught him. Books  are all right just so far and in  their proper place, but, when a  man stops with or at just what  he reads, he is only in the theoretical stage of life, that side  which doesn't have or bring practical results.       "     ,,,  This truth about theory may be  made more clear by the story of  the boy who was asked -was his  father" a Christian and answered,  "Yes, but he is not working at  it." And I may say,.in passing  that this stopping at and with  theory is the weakness of our  churches today. Some of our  ministers lament the fact that  they see so little results of their  preaching; and the cause' in such  cases js that they are mere theologians,���������������������������theoretical, not practical;, they have, in the schools,  studied systematic theology, that  is, theology according to their  system of religion���������������������������and there are  now.so many systems of religion,-  and. religion is divided into,so  many, parts that any one man  canhnot well expect very much  of himself, especially when- his  God supplying it from some external source is away up. somewhere���������������������������is so very far away.  '"'  Dear sir, that kind of, religion  is too thin, as well as theoretical.  It won't "work to bring results.  To show what I mean" I will again  illustrate by a'boy' who was asked to define salt, and said: "Salt  is that ��������������������������� sort of stuff that won't  make potatoes taste good when'  you don't,put it on them."

The gas ring takes the place  of the lower Sunshine fire-pot, thus making  it possible to burn gas in your furnace without  inconvenience. Such is not possible in a  furnace where the ordinary gas log is inserted;  for, should the gas give out, a coal or wood  fire could not be started until the gas pipes  were disconnected.  To provide against sweating in the summer  time, Sunshine Furnace is equipped with a  nickelled steel radiator and dome. AH  bolts and rivets are nickelled, all rods  copper-plated. This special treatment, besides meaning quicker and greater radiation  from the radiator and dome than cold chill  iron could possibly give, acts] as protection  for the bolts, rivets and rods from inroads of  gas.

In very many  parts of the country the old wooden  plows are used. .  When a man dies instead of one of  the heirs taking the whole..property and  paying the remaining heirs for their  parts the whole property'is. divided into  as many parts as there are heirs, .lore  than this, each separate part of the  property is thus divided.  Thus' is a property consisted of ten  acres of pasture land, eighty of vineyard  and ton of grain land., and there were  ten heirs, each heir would .receive one  jure each of grain and pasture land and  eight acres -of vineyard. This process  has been going on for a very long time,  so tliat now in the most fertile part of  Portugal the land is divided into incredibly small portions.  The immediate result of this, according to the United States Consular Reports, is that thc product-of the land_is  barely sufficient at best to sustain: its  owners. Soutli of the River Tagus,-. on  the' other hand, there are enormous  tracts of excellent land lying unused,  but it" has been found impossible to induce the farmers of the north to move  into this region and fake up large holdings.

Now York despatch: The rights of  Mr . Henry H. Rogers to the Rogers  fortune during her lifetime make her  one of the richest women in the world.  Two thousand; two "hundred and  eighty-three men; working every day iu  the rear for 30 vears, would eani.^at  wage's of .2 a day the ������������������50,000,000 which  it id said, Henry H. Rogers possessed at  the time of his death.  1 Rogers earned the money in_ the. Last  30 yt.������������������rs of his life.  -In the form of silver dollars it would  take two freight trains of 28 cars each  to carry the Rogers fortune, .  Ifc   would   take   570  teams   of  horses  and   wagons  to    carry   it.     This' procession    would  be  three'  "and  a. half  miles  long aud  you  could  stand;on  a  curb  an  hour and watch  it  go by..  IfaRogers had ..wanted to put this-  money into houses he could have built  3,800 flat buildingsjhat would have furnished quarters to every citizen of "Min-_  ncapolis. or Omaha, or/housed over half  of Cleveland. . ' - ,  If'Rogers got fair interest ou���������������������������his mon-  ev his income was ������������������5,000,000 a year. An  income tax of 5 per cent, on this would  have yielded the government ������������������250,000,  and this annual sum, within 10 years,  would have purchased a battleship.  This income  meant-that he  received'  S 13,(398 a day. Evcryminute, during the  24 hours of each' day hebecamo    ������������������9.50  richer. ' .--  Tick, tick, tick,-, tick goes the clock.

If Roosevelt had insisted on keeping union' rules  for -iglit hours, each person would have  had to give him ������������������7.12. l  Rogers, if he had made up his mind  to spend his ������������������50,000,000 all'at once,  could have set a 50-cent dinner for every man, woman and child in the United States, and, ia addition, given every  woman a rose, every man a cigar and-  every child a 10 cent bag.of candy.  tlt has been figured that the birth of  a child and-its^carethe first year costs  ������������������166. Rogers, with his fortune, could  have cared for an army of 30,000 babies" a year for 10 years,'and thus proved the statement of Nathan Straus, the  philanthropist, that the lives of 30,000  babies could, be saved in the United  States every" year,' if sufficient funds,  were at hand.  Rogers could have ' paid' the grocery  bills of half a million families for three  months, keeping 2,500,000 person ia food  and house.

Us -iMorv is a most romantic one.  The day's work nt the mine   was over,  and Frederick  Wells, the surface manager,  was'making    his   usual    rounds,  dlaneing  along  one  side   ot   the    deep  excavation, his eye suddenly caught the  .cam of a brilliant object for up on the  bank,    lie lost no time  in climbing up  to   the -spot,  whore  ho   had  noted   the.  Hint  of  light.    He  had  not been  mistaken: it was-really a brilliant crystal,  lie tried to pull.it out with his lingers,  and as this proved impossible lie sought  to prv it cut with the blade of hi* penknife.   To his surprise the knite blade  broke without causing the stone to yield.  Confident now that the crystal must be  a very large one, he dug out the earth  about it, Ihinkins for a moment that,  contrary to all  experience in thc mine,  thc stone-might be attached to a piece  of thc  primitive  rock.    When  he  discovered that this was not thc case, he  bean to doubt that object was really  a diamond.  He said aft crward:  "When I look a good look at the stone  stuck there in the side of the pit it sud-(  denly flashed across me that I had gone  insane���������������������������tlu\t the whole thing was imaginary. I knew it could not be a diamond.  All "n't once another solution da weed  upon me. Thc boys often play jokes on  one another.

He  thinks I will make a fool of myself by  bringing it into the office in a great  state of excitoment, nnd the story will  be told far and wide in South Africa."  .Determined to test the stone on the  spot, before  proceeding further,   Well3  aid'of a larger blade of his knife he  finally succeeded in prying out the stone  and bore it away with him to the office  of the mine. Here it .was cleaned, and, to  thc astonishment of all. was found to  have a weight.' of 3,024% carats, more  than three times that of any other diamond that has been discovered.

And medicine to be taken  internally must be drunk, not  left on the shelf and looked at.  That would be theory. If a  preacher wants to know why his  work doesn't tell more for real  good, let him ask for instance why  General Booth and his family are  so successful and then follow the  example set by them. He will  find that it is sermons in shoes  that bring reults, not sermons  loaded up in the week and shot  off on Sunday in the pulpit.  Book sermons are much as Pat  found it when clipping a sheep:  "There was more ��������������������������� noise than  wool,'' he said. It is not noise  that tells. The Prophet Elijah  saw the fire and heard and felt  the earthquake, but "the Lord  was not in the earthquake or fire"  but when he got quiet and listened "the Lord was in the still  small voice," and that is the  whole secret of religion. The  Divine is in every man, notwithstanding the assertions of our  man-made creeds and dogmas to  the contrary. Man is still created  in the divine image, as the best  of all books says; and it is impos-  sibie for a normal or perhaps any  man, to go across a street with  the intention of doing wrong  without the still small voice within warning. and checking him.  "It is not the detective in brass  buttons that catches the ctiminal"  a detective once said tome, "but  the detective inside the man that  makes him squeal." This we  have had proved in our own town  of late. It'is the "I" within the  man which, when listened to,  lifted up and looked up to, and  trusted and obeyed, will draw  all men to the Father principle of truth  In conclusion, sir, let me say  that what is expected,- of us is  just to be real, to be ourselves.
