Pa says: "When our prayers'are_ worked up; into post-  holes, we shall reclaim the ivorld." ���������������������������.-    " l   -  :_*������������������__>*-_:  FROM ONE MAN'S POINT OF VIEW i  THE Indian reservation problem in this  province is becoming one of far-reaching importance., Much has been said and  written on the question, and in and through  It^irtl^f^crMrteen^deplored^thaH-here5  are such vast areas of the best land in the  province lying waste, of no practical benefit  to the Indians, the province or the people.  These Indian reserves were set apart for  the Indians when the province was little  known. Certain thousands of acres were  allotted to this tribe, another to that tribe,  and so on down the line; A few hundred  Indians were put upon each reserve, each  Indian having 300 or 400 acres more than  he knew what to do with or could possibly  utilize.  The laws governing these reserves provide for the education of the Indians, and  prescribe regulations which look to the Indians' evolution to the self-governing  stage. A grant of $400 each year is provided towards the maintenance of an  Indian school on each reserve. Where no  schools exist for the Indians, the Dominion  government is prepared to pay $1 a month  for each Indian child attending the nearest  public school. This is the initial step  towards the Indians' education. When  a sufficient number are able to read and  write, they are permitted by the regulations  to become incorporated, similar in every  way to the ordinary incorporated municipality, with reeve, council," etc., and all  the powers of taxation for public improvements, maintenance, etc.  With such regulations and such possibilities before them, the  question may be  asked, Why have the Indians made so little  of their opportunities?   The ready answer I we evolve a better system?  is, Because they haven't it_in; therri���������������������������an Indian, is ah Indian, .ahdi,tih^n^Jg_H_dfInd%i.  isa-a ead;one ! ��������������������������� This ^obsolete "idea-Cha^  been the "predominating one controlling our  Indian affairs. We have provided for the  'evolution".of; the Indian���������������������������on 'paper���������������������������and  then close the door in his face.' A proviso  in the regulations kills the Indian. - It is  demanded that the teacher, in! the Indian  school which" the government is prepared  to establish on'every reserve, shall be'of  the same religious faith as that held by the  majority of the Indians' on the reserve.  This proviso makes the educational feature  of the.Indian reservation lawka dead letter.  The power, of the Catholic priest has held  the Indians in darkness for half a century;.  The^Indian^school-at-Kamloops-is-Catholic^  and while it can draw the government  grant for all of the reserves in the District  we may be sure that individual schools on  the several reserves will not be established,  and the Indians will remain in darkness,  and the Indian law a farce, just so long as  the religious faith proviso is on the books.  "We have no-means of knowing what the  moral, social and educational conditions of  the Indians on other reserves is, but we  have no reason to believe they are any  different from those of the Enderby reserve,  since they are all tarred with the same  stick and fumble the same beads. If we  are to judge from what we see here, the  money paid for the education of the Indian  was literally wasted. ��������������������������� It has taught the  Indian only the evils of civilization without  affording him an avenue of expression.  Until the Indian reserves are freed from  .the yoke of darkness, it were folly for us  ���������������������������to seek to better the Indian's condition.  And while he- is enchained, his intellect  throttled and his source of expression cut  off, we can hope for nothing more from our  Indian reserves than we have had in the  past���������������������������vast untilled areas of wastefulness;  an obstacle to progress and a blot upon the  name of our Province and Dominion. We  load the Indian down with thousands of  acres of land he cannot use; we make it  compulsory for him to become educated  before he can make use of it; then we cut  off the possibility of his education!

HicN.enli ltd ������������������ai Gm Ii Ciaidi)    C  Miss Lottie MacNiven, of tho'staff  of the Cayuga ..clvocatj, has tin interesting article in this month's "'Rod  and Gun. in Canada," on "\ Paradise for Anglers." It is splendidly illustrated and makes a very attractive  four-page story which this paper herewith  prints:  Tho sail from Burleigh was delightful, the weather perfect, and tlie passe.igors of the "bgemah" thoroughly  ci., '.yed the day. The.v had lunched  at   Burleigh,   in   the    beautiful    Kn  ot   the   Prov-  pont  an   hour  rocks of that  warthfi   Liikes   district  ince  oi   Ontario,   iind ������������������  roaming over the lovely  wildly  beautiful spot.  Tli ere is something very attractive  about tlie rocks of Burleigh. They  possess such drawing powers that  * even the most travelled and blase of  mortals, when in this region, loosen  themselves iroin the harness of conventionality nnd draw deep breaths  of nature, pure and unalloyed.  Herein lies one great charm of the  district. There are no architectural  palaces oi marble and granite, such  as adorn the different "Thousand Islands," and the shores of Lake Ontario, but there is nature in her pur-  it yand beauty, majestic beyond the  highest flights of man's fancy or ambition. Hosting for even a short  space of time among those natural  beauties, one forgets the existence of  such things as dress suits or decolette  costumes; forgets everything save the  joy of living in such surrounding, and  pays tribute to the God who made it  all.  The boat sailed quickly up to the  Bobcaygeon wharf in the evening,  and the two men leaning over the rail  of the deck prepared to leave the vessel.  Singularly handsome was the elder,  with his high intellectual forehead  and firmly set mouth. You could  place him almost immediately as the  man-of-affairs. who had kept his honor  stainless even th--ugh successful  business life.  But the struggle had told. The  thick locks around his forhead were  ..almost white, iind its heavy lines had  not all been produced by advancing  j cars. The large dark eyes - had a  tired, yearning^, expression, -is if in  tiie battle for'wealth and position  ���������������������������something  had  been -missed.  The young mar. watched him Keen-  ly as they la.i i.d togethe; and started to walk up to the hotel.  ,rl like this. Do you know,"I have  not eaten such a meal in years as  I. took on board that boat to-night?  Strange, is it not, that the navigation  companies get all the good cooks?  Ours receives twenty dollars a week  and we never have anvthing I can  eat."  'The young man did not replv and  the other spoke again. ' .  "They  say   the    fishing    in     these  then," he continued, "there is no  railroad at Sturgeon Point. We can  get the Grand Trunk at Fenelon Falls  or Coboconk and be in Toronto in  a few hours should a telegram come."  They reached Fenelon Falls in time  for lunch, and before twelve o'clock-  were enjoying themselves on the wide  piazza of Hotel Kawartha.  During the afternoon Air. Ross arranged for a guide for the following  day, and then endeavored to get Mr.  Strong out for a walk. ''They have  two of the finest power houses in Ontario here. Suppose we go over and  see them. Thev are just across the  bridge."  But Mr. Strong refused to move.  Stretched in a hammock he lay all  the afternoon, in a lovely breeze, the  smoke of his iragrant cigar curling  slowly upwards, and his cares slipping from him to the noise cf falling  water. .  After dinner both sat and smoked  on the upper piazza ��������������������������� of the western  side of the hotel. For some time they  talked of the next day's fishing; but  as the sun began to sink silence fell  upon them. Slowly the great ball of  fire lowered from sight, and Cameron  Lake stretched before their sight . a  wavy mass of yold  and crimson.  Mr.   Strong  leaned   forward.    "If   I  were an artist," he almost whispered,  "perhaps I could paint it, but it can-  | not be  described  in words."  They were down the river in a skiff  with   a   first-class  guide   and    everything requisite for a clay's fishing before seven o'clock the next morning.  Mr. Strong had the trolling line, and  just as they reached the lumbermen's  camp    he    leaned    eagerly    forward.  "'There is something on it, and it is  pulling.   It must be a fish!"  The  guide stopped  rowing.  "Shall I draw it in for you, sir?"  "No, no.   Keep on rowing slowly; I  can.get it in."  Mr. Strong's eyes were flashing. The  lines in tho hii'li white forehead were  smoothing. He looked, save for the  white locks, like a bov of fifteen vears  old.  "It is a beauty!" he said as he  drew it in deftly, the almost forgotten skill of his boyhood's days returning in a flash.  A beauty it certainly was: Nineteen  pounds and three-quarters, the scales  declared it,' when it was weighed at  the hotel that night, with the other  two maskinonge and eleven bass they  had captured.  "Better wire Johnstone that we will  not bo back for a few uays, but tell'  him to ring up if anything urgent occurs. We can get home from here  in a few hours," Mr. Strong told Ross  at the dinner table that evening.  ;The business must have run smoothly, for no disturbing messages reached Mr. Strong during the.month they  remained in Fenelon Falls.  TWO PICKLE RECIPES.  Here are two excellent recipes: Take  one dozen of tlie large sour pickles, cut  them in round slices. Take a fruit jar,  place a layer of the pickles, a layer of  sugar, and mixed spices, make alternate  layer.., until the jar is full, cover- and  put tliem in a warm place for about  three  davs.    Thev are cxtremelv good.  gj*~>  CUCUMBER PIOKLES.  If a bone is put in tlio jar with cu-  sumber pickles they will keep crisp. And  if the vinegar happens to he too strong  and eats them, making them soft, it will  cat tiie bono  instead of the pickles.  'Wot size shoe do youse  'Any size I kin git."  "JUST KIDS."  wear, Mamie?"  EASILY MADE PICKLES.  Take half a dozen sour pickles, slice  them one-half inch, add'a pound granulated sugar; .coojc together with a little water thirty minutes and you will  havo the most delicious pickles. You  can put them up in jars and keep them  for a long time.  A MODEL BUILDING.  Eight  Hundred     Windows     Provide  Light But Not Air.  In the new 8750,000 fivc-sforcy- fireproof office building whicli the Armours  have put up in Chicago for their office  force of 1.200 the latest ideas for such  construction have been incorporated.  Light being the  most important single  LOSS AND GAIN.  Thev  fished  ���������������������������waters is the best in Canada. I have  not fished for years and suppose I  must be getting into my dotage, but  I feel like getting into a sweater once  again. I would like to get out in  a boat with a trolling line. Do you  suppose I can spare a few days more  Ross?"  Ross smiled.   He said nothing about  the   two   telegrams,   resting  safely   in  hid  pocket,  and which  he  had-- wtiv-  laid that morning before they reached  his employer.   But he thought of tho  look in a pair of beautiful "dark eves  which had been raised to his the dav  _previous^ before _he left Toronto.  ������������������������������������������������������-J.r k.���������������������������hhri^to'-^oni-^place'-^tlfcrc"  he can rest.   Keep him awav as long  -;as  you   can.   He  is   breaking  down,  ���������������������������hut no one dare hint such a thing to  Slim;  nnd  I  love  dear  daddv   better  than anyone on earth."   ,  Thc last words made Livingstone  Ross wince slightly. Although ho was  only private secretary to C. Hunter  Strong, the wealthy hank director, he  'would greatly havo preferred coming  .JlhofU.Lof f"''011 'huldy in tlio affection'?  ol tho beautiful dark-eyed girl. Jt  was small wonder he 'smiled now.  \Miat ti farco it seemed to hoar the  magnate, who could count his annual  income, in five figure.., wonder if  few days could be spared.  It would never do.  however,  (n  him   -u.-pect   any   one   was   w'ntcl,.,^  hun,   or  he  would   have    taken    the  m the river, and in  Cameron and Balsam Lakes. They  lunched at half a dozen different  camps along the lake shores, and Mr.  Strong's step grew more buoyant and  his laugh more ringing each day. The  luck of their first day's fishing never  deserted them during their stay. One  morning thoy took a lunch out with  them iind camped at Rosedale. . It  was growing towards evening as they  drew in their lines, and the sun was  slowly sinking from sight in a blaze  of color almost beyond description.  "I would like to bivouac here all  night. It reminds me of the time*Pat-  erson, Henderson and I camped at  Murray Bay in our second year at  McGill. It seems only yesterday, but  Henderson is a professor in an American university, with half a dozen  letters  after  his  name  and Paterson  has  b  een  de;  id for  years.  How  these  few  tl  1V3  have drawn me  back  to the  old  d  IVS  !   1  have  been  a successful  ma i  ;  all  my  undertaking  a have  turn-  a  let  hill!.  said  liur-  the  'Die  air  morning train and boon in Toronto  the following day at noun. . 0 l.jv.  nigstone Ross' voic. -..mod almost  careless as he answered: "You left  things in good shape. Vou cm . a-.lv  tie(.spared  for a day or  two."  "Bo you believe" me. Ross,"  Air. Strong next mornimr. a. they  ried down tho wharf to catch  Ksturian. "I slcr.l like a |o_.  porter had to call nn; twice. The  ���������������������������out here must be bewitched. Jn the  past five years I have not slent, more  than four hours on an average out  ox tlie twenty-four."  "I ..slept we'll, too. This air is fine,"  Ross answered; but ho thought that  his employer had not been "dragged  from work much too soon.  The sail from Bobcaygeon was a  repetition of the beauties "obthe previous day, and the breakfast in the  ���������������������������cool dining room of the l.sturian was  thoroughly enjoyed by both men. The  gleam of canvas flashed upon their  Mghfc at many points, showing where  campers were enjoying the shade and  splendid fishing of the region, and  at Sturgeon Point they changed their  ���������������������������quarter, for the Manita und sailed up  to  Fenelon  Falls.  "That oak grove almost tempted me  ���������������������������to remain," said Mr. Strong as they  1cit Sturgeon Point wharf. "It is a  lovely spot; but I have heard so much  about- the maskinonge of Fenelon  River, and the black bass of Cameron  uuke, that we had bettor go on. And,  -eTi^oii-t=-wellt=but=inonev=^i3=noUaver-v--=  thing."  He spoke softly as they were slowly  rowed up the river, and", oss did not  reply. Mr. Strong's frame of mind  was just then exactly as his private  secretary desired that it should, be;  iind in almost perfect silence, save  for the dipping of the oars, they reached the upper wharf nt Fenelon Falls,  Thc longing look in Mr. Strong's  oyo< had vanished entirely, and the  'pallor of" his" skiti had'given "placeTo.  ii .pound coat of tan, when at last  thev '..i-piir.d to leave. He had gained ..__...y pounds iti weight, iind looked, twenty years younger" than on the  day o: hi.* arrival.  "This is fine of tlio most beautiful  spots on earth," he said to Ross, as  Ihey boarded the train for Toronto.  "Wo are only going through life once,  and w. make a tremendous mistake  if we miss all the beauty in our mad  rush after wealth. Of what use is our  money if it gives us no happiness?  Wis can not tnku it with us when our  sojourn hero i.s ended. J am coming  back hero for two months next summer."  Herein lies a second charm  district;   Xo  man,  woman    or  ever visits tho Kawartha Lakes  out   wishing to  return!  factor in office efficiency, the structure  takes the shape of the letter I . On all  the exposed sides there are windows, except for tho outside of the short middle  stroke, which holds the vaults. Each  floor contains 140.000 square feet, yet  the furthest distance of any desk from  a window is 40 feet.  Tho ceilings are about 15 1-2 feet high.  Eight hundred tall windows break the  walls, placed in sets of three every six  feet on all four sides of.- the building.  Partitions have been eliminated as far as  possible. Broad aisles alone make the  divisions  between  departments.  Even the private "offices are glass walled clown to a foot wainscoting, air dat  Unit, says System, private, offices are  only for a few executive heads who have  many conferences or confidential work.

(New York Herald.)  "1 fully agree with tho Herald's  high standard in keeping its news free  from advertising influence,"' said  Colonel Goorgo Han _y, president of  tlie publishing house of Harper &  Brothers,   yesterday.  "The precise situation I understand  to   be  this:���������������������������Air.   Nathan  Straus was  giving away pasteurized milk and was  advertising  in "the-Herald.   In  common  with  other  public journals  the  Herald  applauded  Air.   Straus'  char-  itablo intent, but disapproved of the  act itself because  of  the conviction,  based  upon  the  results  of  scientific  inquiry,   that  tho   product was    not  beneficial   to   the   consumer,   and   it  incidentally declined  to  publish certain   notices   commendatory   of    Air.  Straus   and   his   work.      Whereupon  Air.   Straus  withdrew  Iiis   firm's   advertisements   from   the   Herald,' thus  inflicting  punishment   to   the  extent  of $44,000 per annum.  "Now the Herald makes the ethical  point that a newspaper must be free  and independent or betray the public  which it serves, and insists that it  cannot bo thus untrammelled if it  heeds the dictates or wishes of its  advertisers. Inferentially, it also  holds that advertisers ought not to  expect or desire to influence the  journals whicli profit from their patronage.  "The Herald's position is sound  'Snd conforms to the best ideals of  journalism. No argument on that  point is needed. It is a self- evident  fact. But it is strange that the Herald, which is the most distinctively  human of New York's journals,  should overlook thc deficiencies inherent in very human natures.  "A great journal is not a private  enterprise. It is a public institution.  Some aro local; some are national.  The Herald is more. It is .international and unique.

THE ENDERBY PRESS AND WALKER'S WEEKLY.  0  ..  m  \'i  ;f  ft  Garvins Discipline  Haughty Janitor  -o   o  For some time it had been apparent  -to the Garvins that whenever anything  Wiis lost off thc dumb-waiter the janitor  asked them if they knew what had become of il. The unanimity wilh which  their co-tenants, through the medium  of a common agent, applied to them for  the restoration of missing property  finally became very humiliating, and  Mr. Garvin said he was going to put a  stop to it.  "The next time," lie said, "that that  fellow 'John calls up her and asks us  about Jones' milk or Smith's bread or  Brown's cabbages I'm going to squelch  him so effectually that hc-.will let anybody run away with the house, itself before he'll ask" us if we know what has  he come of it."  .Mr. Garvin' had an opportunity to pursue his drastic policy with the janitor  the very next morning. It was a Sunday morning .and Mr. Garvin, eager for  battle, rushed to the dumb-waiter in  response to the clarion call from the  vjanitor's speaking tube.  '���������������������������Hello!" hc said.  ���������������������������'���������������������������Hello!" came the reply from thc  depths  of  the  basement.    "Say,    have  youse folks seen anything of a basket of  tugs from thc delicatessen that was left  on thc dumb-waiter this morning for  Mrs. Crosby?"  ������������������������������������������������������No," said Garvin, "we haven't. What  do you take us for, anyway? A pack of  thieves? When things are lost about the  house why don't you go some place else  once in a while to look for them? Why  do you always come to us?"  "Becaue," came the unhesitating, reply, "you are the only people in the  building who never In^e anything yourselves."  For a moment Mr. .Garvin appeared  convinced by this "apparently conclusive  evidence of his own guilt, but soon his  indignation as an injured householder  asserted itself and urged him to vindicate his honor.  "The only ones who haven't lost anything, are we?!' hc retorted: V Well, just  let me tell you that is no proof. We  have lost things, too." -  ���������������������������'���������������������������You have?" exclaimed' the. janitor.  '���������������������������You never said anything about it."-  "No," said Garvin, "we never did: Wc  kept still out of consideration for you.  We knew you had a hard time keeping  track,of so many different things, so  when wc lost steaks and groceries and  ��������������������������� milk and papers we just did without or  else .went,out and bought,more rather  than worry you about it. But we're  through with all such mistaken kindness. Hereafter when we lose, anything  you've got to hustle around and find' it  or take chances of losing your, job."  Having thus relieved himself of a part  of his bottled up wrath, Mr. Garvin  drew in his head and slammed thc door.  Mrs. Garvin stood at his elbow, pale and  frightened.  "Oh, Chester," she 'said, "what did you  mean by telling him that yarn about our  having "lost thing's?   We never have."  "That's all right," said Garvin. "It is  just as well to make-him think so. What  is more, I am going to keep on rubbing  in our losses.

"Say, John," he said, "did you see anything of a roll of butter the grocer's boy  left  .his morning?"  Before Garvin had finished his breakfast he was disturbed by a violent whistling and .bricking at the tube and the  creaking of the dumb-waiter.  "Hello!" came a sepulchral voice from  the basement; "here's your butter."  _ .Mr. Garvin was too much   astounded  at that unexpected    announcement" to  make reply.  "Well, I'll be blessed'!" hc said to his  wife. "Where do vou suppose hc got  it?"  "What are you going to do wilh it?''  cross-questioned Mrs. Garvin.  "Keep it, 1 suppose."  "But it isn't ours," she protested. 4,,IIc  must have scared one of thc neighbors  into giving it up. You had better give it  back to return to them."  "Never," said Garvin. "I have started  out to teach that fellow a lesson, and  I'm going to stick to it. Silence just  now is thc best policy.. To make inquiry of him or the neighbors might  spoil the game."  in pursuance of his scheme for disciplining the janitor Mr. Garvin during  thc next few days reported missing a  pint of cream, a ten-pound package of  granulated sugar, a quart of strawberries and a basket of potatoes, and each  time, to the Garvins' increasing amazement, John called up after the lapse of  a few minutes:  "All right, sir; here it is."  At last Mrs. Garvin, being of a superstitious bent, began to read disaster in  the janitor's extraordinary obedience.  "1 do hope," she said, "that you won't  report any more fictitious losses. We'll  be guilty of robbing everybody in  the house before we get out of this  scrape. I am already such a dyed-in-the-  wool thief that I am ashamed to look  any of the neighbors in the face."  The day after receiving the mysterious  basket of potatoes Mrs. Garvin received  the monthly bill from the grocer.  "They've made a mistake,"   she ������������������aid,  after comparing it with her own itemized  list of purchases.

Some modern landlords  own half a county, some arc not good  men, they have to die, they die bankrupt, because they are not rich towards  God. Here light shines on the mystery.  Years ago we used to watch-the news  of the whale fishing fleet "Mary Jane,"  of Peterhead, "full."

The   Empress   More  Liked Than  Formerly,   but   Gravely' Affected   by  - the-Troubles of_ the .Empire���������������������������Simple   Home   Life   of   the   Imperial  Family at Peterhof.  The reports concerning the health of  the Czarina continue to bo discouraging.  Always of a melancholy disposition, the  events of the last few years in Russia  have deepened her depression until now  there is no doubt that she is on the  verge of melancholia hesid. . suffering  from ills attendant upon a nervous  breakdown.  The Czarina, though she has never  succeeded altogether in winning thc love  of her adopted people, is far more popular now than she was during the first  years of her married life. Then the Russians frankly distrusted and disliked  her. I-ler expression at that time was  sad and rather discontented. She was  very shy and retiring and assumed an  air of indifference to cover these defects,  which the court mistook for coldness.  Then too she was largely the victim  of circumstances. The horrible accident  on her wedding day when hundreds ot  persons were killed and injured filled  the peasants with superstitious fear of  her and her influence. Lastly, her delay in presenting Russia with a male  heir to the throne displeased all the  country.  Latterly she has won triends. People  have discovered that her sad expression  does not really mean discontent, that  her assumed indifference masks a kind  and sympathetic nature. The peasants  have forgotten the ill-omened wedding  day and Russia rejoices in the young  Czarevitch.  Yet notwithstanding this gain for the  Czarina there is no sadder court in Europe to-day than that at Peterhof. All  the world knows that the Emperor and  Empress live surrounded by guards, that  their food is specially prepared by trusted hands and tasted before being served  and that they cannot go from the palace  without the greatest'precaution.  Yet in spite of this the Imperial family leads a simple home life.  There is no formality in the"relations  of the Czar and the Czarina with their  ladies and gentlemen in waiting, and  though the Empress has aged and changed she 'remains gracious and kindly to  .those about her. while the Czar, though  deeply affected by the trials of his unhappy country, is still at times the gay  and delightful host of days gone by.  There are two ladies in waiting in  immediate attendance always. Among  other requirements is the rule that they  'must be able'to play tennis-with, the  Czar. Her ladies in waiting were the  first of her people who learned to love  and understand the Empress and they  tell many stories of her kindness'and  sympathy.       ' *  The Czar in his home-life is all the  moat exacting could wish���������������������������a devoted  husband sincerely admiring and deeply  in love with his clever wife, an affectionate father who plays with and fondles his children Untii the troubles of  the last few years and tiie recent breakdown of the Czarina saddened him the  Czar was like a gay schoolboy.    .. '  He is not brilliant and his nature is  weak, but he has a-saving sense of .humor which endears him to all whoknow  him. In days past he dearly loved a  good joke and was as, ready to laugh  at ihs own weaknesses as at those of  others.        . -   ,  Though the world thinks of him as a  despot/he is anything but that in .his  home. A friend of one of the.ladies in  waiting tells this story to illustrate how  informal "are the relations-of the Czar  with those in'his entourage." On the day"  of the christening cf thc last little princess the ladies in waiting .had many  fatiguing duties, and when all was pver  this particular' lady was glad to make  her way to her apartment for much  needed rest and"a chat', with thc friend  who had come to see. her.-'*  Just as 'thej" had settled' down along  came a messenger from'the Czar, "Would  the princess come at once and play tennis with his Majesty?"  ���������������������������'No," said the lady in waiting calmly  to the amazement of her friend. ,lI am  too tired after the day's duties."  .  Thai message was. taken to the Emperor, who apparently did not in'the  least resent it.  The days when the Czar took pleasure in simple fun are past; No_w it is  difficult to rouse him from the depression which has settled upon him since  the Czarina's health has given way.  Thc Empress, true to her English  blood, is bringing up her''children in  English fashion, with the simplest of  diet and tlie plainest of dress. She herself, despite the luxury and richness of  Russian fashions, favors plain tailor  nitide gowns _and only wears her gorgeous" jew.llr'whcifsba te=oc casi ons-de-  mand. To see her in the morning with  her little daughters you might suppose  she was some one i'n charge of them  rather than their mother.  She is tall, stout and of that ruddy  complexion which is a heritage of the  Engli-h royal "family. In her simple  dress with "while collar and cuffs almost  like a trained nurse's uniform, she  watches her children at play nowadays  with an expression so-fa.rn.way. and.sad  that you wonder if she is looking into  the future and seeing all the trials  which will beset their paths.  Sometimes on such occasions she is  joined by thc Czar and together they sit  iu silence Thc Czar sloops more than  he did and looks shorter in consequence.

"For two years I had suffered from  advanced kidney disease, was stooped,  back-weary, hollow-eyed and completely  played out.

THE ENDERBY PRESS AND WALKER'S WEEKLY  September 2, 1909  ENDERBY PRESS  Published every  Thursday at  Enderby, B.C. at  ?2 per year, by the Walker Press.  SEPTEMBER 2, 1909  A Beautified Enderby  TT is marvelous how much can  X be accomplished in a season by  the spending of a little money  and half an hour's intimacy each  day with the garden rake! If  you doubt it, just keep an eye on  the gardens about our Enderby  homes! It doesn't take long" for  outsiders to "sit up and take notice", either. Editor Wolfenden  visited Enderby last week, and  the Armstrong Advertiser tells  the impression he carried home:  "The City of Enderby is rapidly  becoming a beautiful spot. The  streets, in the residential portion  have ail been widened and graded  and the ornamental tree planting  that the citizens are undertaking  will give the gateway city an enviable appearance."  The present season's work has  told well. The municipal street  work and sidewalking is worth  to the city many times what it  cost, and the individual work of  the citizens in beautifying their  homes is certain to bring even  greater results next year. There,  is not any reason why Enderby  should not be the beauty spot of  the magnificent Okanagan Valley.  We have the location, we have  the people, we have the loyalty,  AND WE CAN DO IT.  shortcomings. These are being  overcome one by one. To bring  the plant to greater proficiency  we are adding $2,000 worth of  equipment. This will facilitate  in many ways the work of giving  Enderby a creditable newspaper.  Stepping Stone to Success  Steadily   Onward  NORTHERN OKANAGAN is  certain to experience the  most rapid growth in its  history in the. next two years. It  has advanced. slowly in the past,  but the movement has ever been  forward. Today it stands on the  threshold of its greatest onward  movement; its immense possibilities fully demonstrated; its  magnificent resources known; its  advantages of non-irrigation and  unrestricted areas of land fully  realized���������������������������it only remains for capital and energy to get together  and we will have here a land  virtually "flowing with milk and  honey."  Of course it means work! God  bless us: why the sublimest gift  to man is the privilege of work!  Every great accomplishment  means great effort; every victory  the overcoming of many defeats.  Out of many adversities, not the  least of which are those of our  own making, the Northern Okanagan has reached a position of  commanding importance, and is  making good. It has failed in  nothing. There are opportunities  here for men and women who  can stick to a thing that are not  =to-..e-sur-passed-an-y-where-in-the-  Dominion of Canada. But we  want men and women who CAN  and WILL stick to a thing. The  other kind will not do any better  here than any place else. There  are two things essential to success in the Northern Okanagan:  The ability to think and work and  to "saw wood."  Just a Straw  THE  evolution  of the  typewriter is the marvel of the  age.   Ten years ago every  character was on a type-bar by  itself, and as a result the person  operating the typewriter had to  finger three keys where today he  fingers one.   Ten years ago the  best typewriters were "blind"���������������������������  the type bar struck the paper  an   "up"   blow���������������������������like driving a  nail in the ceiling.   In order to  see what he  was  writing,  the  operator was compelled to lift up  the paper carriage or  tilt the  platen.    This  was followed by  the side-stroke, visible typewriter  ���������������������������the type bars were raised and  made to hit the paper in plain  view of the operator���������������������������like driving  a  nail   in   the  wall���������������������������and   the  keyboard was reduced in size:  two characters or letters being  put upon each type bar.   This  was a vast improvement on the  earlier style  of  machine.   But  perfection in mechanism had not  yet been reached.    The problem  of building a machine so as to  make the type bars strike the  paper a downward stroke���������������������������like  driving a nail in the floor���������������������������occupied the time of the finest  and  best of the typewriter builders.  It remained for an obscure Canadian���������������������������a genius in his line���������������������������to  make possible the down-stroke  visible machine���������������������������the Oliver by  name���������������������������named after the Canadian  who  invented the down-stroke  type bar,  and  whose  estate, is  still  largely   interested  in the  Oliver    Typewriter    Company.  The new machine had many imperfections   when first brought  out, but in the past three years  it has been brought to the highest  point    of   perfection   that  money and brains  can  evolve.  The new Oliver is a marvel in  simplicity,  strength and utility.  It has reduced the keyboard to  the minimum: three characters or  letters on each type bar, and the  fewest pieces in any typewriter  made.  The movement of all business  today is typewriterward. In the  home, too, the typewriter occupies a prominent place.- Farmers  are placing the machine in their  homes, and the boys "and girls  quickly learn the use of it. The  carbon paper is next, and in a  little while the farmer has a carbon copy of all business letters  written by him, and all accounts  rendered, snugly filed away for  convenient reference. The boys  and girls become familiar with  the machine, and can readily op-  WaWitr^Thl'ough^it^theyiearh1  the science of correspondence;  the old, poorly-written letters are  replaced by - the clean, clear,  business-like typewritten letter,  and of every letter a carbon copy  is kept, so the writer may always  know what he has written. The  average farmer or businessman,  fruitraiser, poultryman or stockman���������������������������no matter what the nature  of his business���������������������������loses more in a  single year by not having on file  a copy of his letters and accounts  than would pay for a standard  typewriter, and in addition' to  this and the advantage of having  his letters and accounts well  written, he will, if he has children, soon find them acquiring  business knowledge in a helpful,  practical way, that would cost  them a course in business college  under ordinary conditions existing prior to the advent of the  typewriter in business and the  home. A good typewriter is a  business maker, and the better  it is the better will be the business end of the home.  Brain Leaks  Some men think they are faithful because they would rather  fight for old forms than face new  facts.  There is something wrong about  a man when it is necessary to  make him good by law.���������������������������Cran-  brook Herald.  Just arrived!

In the Northern State? many of tho.  protected birds nre' inducted to build  their nests in or near buildings, and  thev arc fed and sometimes jvirtiiilly  tan'ied. This is commendable, of  course, but robin?, lor example, are  included in the liH of gnuio birds in  some of the Southern States, and efforts made to tame them here may  result, in their destruction on their  southward fii_ht in the autumn. Accustomed to "frequent Uic homes of  their Northern friends, if they evince  similar habits in the South they are  often _illcd for tlie pot.  In the course of time the Southern  States will protect these birds, but  until this is clone it would be well  to remember the .result of' feeding  birds near our homes. Of cour.-e thc  mere fact that they are not molested  while in the North causes many birds  to rest round about houses, but if  they must be feci this should not be  done near dwellings.  There'are few women who view with  calmness the killing of harmless birds  by cats. On the other hand, there  are few owners of cats who take any  stops to prevent these depredations.  The taming of birds in places where  cats are permitted to roam afc will  means certain death to a large majority of such birds, and so far as  we know there is only one preventive,  and that is to remove the cat from its  field of  activity.  The theory that cats keep the  country home free from Tats and mice  is pretty���������������������������or was before Puss, pampered and overfed, became more fond  iof the heat of the kitchen range or  the sun than of hor traditional hunting fields. Now that the birds are  encouraged to nest near by, almost  within-her reach, with a minimum of  effort she varies her diet now and  then with a nestling and is content.  To prevent, hounds from hunting  foxes we confine them until ready to  accompany them, but we encourage  songbirds "to nest near dwellings and  at the same time permit one of their  worst enemies to nary them daily.���������������������������  From   the  Forest  and   Stream.

I had  inflammation of  the female organs,  and could not  stand or walk any  distance. At last I  was confined to my  bed. and the doctor  said I would have  to go through an operation, but this I  refused to do. A friend advised Lydia  E.

Imost heartily  recommend this medicine to all women  -who suffer with female troubles. 1 have  also taken Lvdia E.

TOMMY ATKINS' UNIFORM.  Trousers     Most'" Costly     Item���������������������������New  Rules for  His  Kit.  It will astonish most people to be told  that the British Government in addition  to being a maker of laws is the greatest  tailor in the world. The army clothing  factorv- at I'imlico is the biggest tailor's  shop in England. Last year Tommy  Atkins' tailors bill amounted to " ������������������355,-  375. During, the Boer war the clothing  of the army cost nearly   ,.5.000,000..  Trousers are the most costly item ni  the soldier's wardrobe, and for their  nether garments last year thc nation  had to pay no less a sum than ������������������73,278.  This recalls the fact that it is less than  ninety years since the British army first  put on its trousers���������������������������that the British infantry soldier, that is,.first substituted  trousers for the old fashioned knee  breeches.  The British soldier will be clothed on  an entirely different system to what  has prevailed for so many years, and  thc innovation will probably be a great  deal more satisfactory to the rank and  file. Every man will receive his free  outfit on enlistment as heretofore, but  he will be required to provide his personal clothing and necessaries out of-an  allowance credited to him quarterly in  advance. Instead of his present ��������������������������� kit  allowance of twopence a day after  six months' service he will receive at the  .eiid_of_the. first.Year._ajuiiip_sjim__cquiya._-  lent to the accumulated twopences, in  addition to the separate clothing allowance.  The maintenance of kit and clothing  will be a matter between the soldier  and his commanding officer. It is intended that the present arbitrary periods  of wear allotted to each garment shall  be abolished. Under the old system a  pair of trou.ers might be serviceable today and  "lime expired" to-morrow.  Even in the piping times of peace  Tommy Allan's tailor's hill would make  a millionaire poor in a year. Roughly  speaking, it costs ������������������1,000.000 every year  to clothe the British army. The headgear of the troops, embracing everything from a simple cap to a bearskin  helmet, exhausts nearly ������������������50.000, and  boots, shoes and leggings, which are  purchased ready made, cost nearly  ������������������250,000. The 'cost of a soldier's uniform varies from just over ������������������10 10s. to  less than ������������������3, according to thc regiment in which he may be serving. For  instance, the annual tailor's bill for the  rank and file, in the Life Guards is just  over ������������������7. while in thc infantry of the  line it is under   .CI���������������������������Tit-Bits.

The sagacity of the rescue dogs of St.  Bernard is remarkable and the following story is told in the Wide Wordl  Magazine of "Barry," the most famous  of all the Alpine St. Bernard ., who lost  his life while performing his duty:  "During the ten rears he was with  us," said' the Provost, ';he saved the  lives of 40 persons who had lost their  way in the snow. On one occasion lie  found a child 10 years old lying in thc  slumber which precedes death. The dog  warmed the child with its breath, and  then rou3.d it from sleep by licking it.  This much accomplished, Barry, by lying down on his side, gave the child an  obvious invitation to get upon his back  and ride. Tho child did so, and wa<5  thus carried to the monastery. Barry  was killed by some .unknown person,  probably in mistake. The inscription on  his monument is: 'Bar-ry the heroic.  Saved the lives of 40 persons, and was  killed by the forty-first.'"

It is when the blooms have seeded and  lare in the fluffy feathery condition  that the weather prophet faculties come  to the fore. In'fine weather tlie ball  expands to the full, but when rain approaches-it shuts like an umbrella. If the  weather is inclined to be showery it  keeps shut all the time, only opening  wheat the danger from the .wet is past.  The ordinary clover ami all its varieties, including the trefoil and the shamrock, arc also barometers. When rain is  coming the leaves shut together like the  shells of an oyster and' do not open  again until.fine weather is assured. For  a day or two before radii comes their  stem's swell .to an appreciable extent and  stiffen so that the leaves are borne more  uprightly than usual. This stem swell-  in"' when radn is expected is a feature of  many flowering grasses.  Tlie fingers of which the leaves of ^the  horse chestnut a.i. made' up" keep flat  and fanlike as long as fine weather is  likely to continue. AVith the coming of  rain,' however, they droop as if to offer  less resistence to the'weather.

In Denmark one of the favorite forms  of exercise on the ice is a game wherein  the-skaters can-have their fun and also  (he tots who prefer to ride upon sleds.  A large pole is fixed upright in the  middle of thc frozen pond and a cross  beam is attached, the whole affair being  kept from toppling over by means of a  large wagon wheel, through whose hub  the upright pole is thrust and which  lies flat upon the ice. To the end of  the longer section of the transverse  beam, a string of sleds is attached, nnd  then eight or ten of thc large lads i-nd  lassies begin to skate in a circle, pushing the beam around with them, while  the little fellows climb on the sleds.  Around   and  around   they  go,  faster  and faster, amid shouts of delight, until,  the  string of  sleds is flung out  across  the ice like the lash of a long whip.   It -  often becomes necessary for those who  are   furnishing   the   motive   power    to  slacken speed in order to let the coasters get back into a better-position, centrifugal   force   having   *. retched   them  out sometimes almost to the banks cf  ''the lake���������������������������The Pathfinder.   ������������������-*������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������  It is an undisputed fact that  one packet of Wilson's Fly Pads  has actually killed a bushel   of  house flies.

The  classic wall "No tognue can tell the  agony of my suffering" is of wider application than the patient uttering it is  aware. ,  . It is equally patent, according to.

Not merely its aspect at  the'outset of treatment, but its variations are of prime significance.  The tongue findings!"are directly and  vitally connected-with, diagnosis,-treatment and prognosis. Tlie mere .presence  of a coat on part of the tongue may signify nothing.

There are certain aspects in which it  may reasonably be said that Great Britain has only'herself to thank for the  position in which she finds herself. It is  perfectly clear by now, and as time goes  on it will be clearer still, that she made  an egregious mistake iu inventing  and building Dreadnoughts. In the old  designs of ship she possessed, and could  without too much difficulty maintain  an enormous lead. It was not to her interests to initiate a new type. If any  other nation had conceived a Dread  nought, then England would have been  bound to follow, and if possible improve  upon the example thus set. But it was  none of her business to set the example  herself, to give a new spurt to naval  competition and to invent a type of ship  so manifestly superior to all other types  as to make them not indeed obsolete,  but ineffective by comparison. It is now  prettv clearly proved that thc building  of the Dreadnought instituted a new  scale and standard of naval rivalry,  which, instead of re-enforcing, positively injures Great Britain's ascendancy at  sea. The Dreadnoughts being in a class  bv themselves, the stress of competition  has been practically doubled. All nations, with feverish unanimity, havo  taken to building'them; a vast amount  of expenditure that would otherwise  have been postponed or avoided is thus  being incurred; new harbors, bases and  docks have to be constructed for the  reception and protection of these monsters.  . ������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������   AS WE PROGRESS.

Anyway, Miss Warrington did  two-things���������������������������woke up the Gay White  Way in midsummer and made a real  peach basket hat for only 24 cents!  Instead of getting a lot of imitation things to'de. prate it with,, Miss  Warrington was practical. She paid  3 cents for a peach basket, and with  this on her arm went along Produce  Row and bought 9 cents worth of early  summer vegetables.- Have you guessed it? The basket was the.oundati oh  for the hat, of course!' "  Dorothy picked out a banana and  two radishes, a lemon���������������������������nothing else.

Answered Questions Without Blowing'  'Its Own  Horn.  Out in the middle 'West there is a  huge manufacturing company, the largest'  in the world in that line, it is said, but  it has enormously, enterprising competitors,-all of whom advertise liberally.  - But this company advertises too, and  for years its appropriation has been  made on an unusual plan." Thc rule  generally with such expenditures is to  set aside a stated' sum each year���������������������������  sometimes an arbitrary ariiount, sometimes a percentage of profits for Jltefia.st  twelvemonth. i  This concern, however,'recognizes that  publicity money is to be spent to influence next year's business���������������������������not last  year's. So the gross Na mount of - next  year's trade is estimated as closely as  possible, and then a certain percentage  of that constitutes the advertising appropriation.  Before thc depression of 1907-08 developed, says the Circle, this company's  business had grown at such a rate that  _th������������������__ annual,., percentage ...yielded... more.  money than could be spent to advantage  along the established lines of thc house.  ''Now, had we better reduce our \>er-  ccntage?'' asked the directors. "Or shall  we seek new channels for spending the  surplus of thc same percentage? If so,  what channels are best?"  They wanted information���������������������������honest advice.  A dozen question calculated to bring  it out were drawn up"-and submitted to  every advertising- firm- in thc country.  Some did not give any opinion. Most of  them replied, however, and usually at  considerable length.  Among the latter was just one. it is  said, that gave full replies to the questions and said nothing about itself.  Other advertising fii ins saw au opportunity to get profitable xkw business.  They' therefore gave full particulars  about themselves, and iu some cases  sent .salesmen to see thc manufacturing  enncorn's directors. A few were so intent in explaining who tliey were that  thev negleettd the questions, in the  end' it wii. decided lo spend the surplus  not reduce the percentage. The firm  that .aid  nothing about itself  got  the  account.   --���������������������������-������������������> ���������������������������  GOOD ROADS NEEDED.

The  -protection   of steel  by concrete  was   shown   by- some  small  iron  bolt3  recently  removed  from --'blocks  of   concrete in which they had been imbedded  for about  thirteen  years.    They    were  used lo hold  the rails of a railway on  the foreshore on the English coast and  were   alternately covered   and   exposed  as the tide rose and receded.   They were  G'/> in. long, 11-16 in. in diameter, and-  the head end was embedded to a depth'  of 4 in., leaving 2% in. of the, nut,end  exposed. >The particular bolt examined,  according to the Engineer. London, showed that the head and "about one inch of  thc shank were absolutely unrusted and  retained  ..ie, original  black  scale. r% The ,"  shank th������������������m  tapered from the  unrusted,  part to the surface of the concrete, at-\  which point it~was reduced to less .than  half an inch in diameter. - There >was an  abrupt   increase,  in .diameter   then-,-to  ,'  that of the projecting portion of tlie'bolt, ���������������������������  which Jiad  decreased  to  9-16  in.

The House of Commons, as might  have been expected, has contributed a  fair share to a very amusiug collection  of "bulls." It was in one of the debates of that body that the late Col.  Saunderson described Eastern Itumelia  as "man enough to take her stand" in  defence of a certain threatened right.  An Irish M. P. once declared that of  the outrages reported from Ireland  three-quarters were exaggerated and  half had no foundation in fact���������������������������a statistical computation that reminds one of  another Irish M. P. who declared excitedly to a group of fellow members:  "I want to convince you that thero isn't  any truth in half the lies they are telling about Ireland."  The biography of Deanr Hook recalls  a certain minor canon who used to  preach at the Cathedral when Hook was  a boy at Winchester School. In one of  his sormons there'occurred the striking  reflection that "what is impost 1. e can  never be, and very seldom come3 to  pass."  Another discourse was long remembered for its pathetic lamentation on    the  degeneracy of the age: "O tempora! O  1 mores!  What  times  wo  live in!  Little  boys and girls run about the    street.-i  In France about 000 duels are  yearly. J  There are only 770,000 natives in!1 all  of Siberia.

Editor The Enderby Press:  Sir: Within a week the vote of  the citizens will be taken on the  city hail question. The site has  been settled, and the question  now becomes simply one of "to  be or not to be." I have no wish  to influence anybody's vote either  one way or the other. I do not  flatter myself that my influence,  if indeed it exists at all, is a disturbing factor to those whose  municipal star is now in the ascendant, but I want to ask the  electors, through your columns,  a question which I make bold to  say very "few of them ever ask  themselves. It is this: What  process of reasoning do you apply to your mental faculties before  you vote? and to many, Do you  reason with yourself at all? The  very possession of a vote imposes  a responsibility on the possessor  which many regard only too  lightly, and I will go further  than this and say . that many regard their vote merely in the  light of an instrument to be used  as the occasion offers, to curry  favor in high places or to secure  the continuity of patronage of  some individual or group of individuals whose "say so" means  dollars. All this ��������������������������� is very impudent of me, but I shall have accomplished a desirable object if I  compel only a few to think for  themselves instead of allowing  their minds to degenerate into a  magaphone for the airing of the  opinions and desires of scheming  self-seekers.
