Mr. Brandon will  appear at both performances. The  comedy "Charley's Aunt" will be put  on to-night, and "In Missouri" tomorrow night.  The Northern Okanagan Farmers'  Institute is not losing any time.   Its  .officers took���������������������������up-the^matter^Jof^a,  fruit packing school at Enderby a  week or ten clays ago, and the school  is now an assured fact. Tables, etc.  arc being prepared, and already the  required number of (fifteen) student  applicants to form a class have  handed in their names. If you are interested, give in your name, so that  you may be taken into the class in  case a vacancy occurs at the last  moment. President Little, of the Institute, wishes it to be made known  that the Institute is just now in need  of funds, and he urges all who contemplate joining to hand in their  yearly membership fee at an early  date. It is only 50c a year, and one  docs not necessarily have to be an.  agriculturist to join. Any of the  officers arc authorized to take the fee  and give a receipt therefor, or it may  be left at the office of the Walker  Press and will be turned over to the  secretary-treasurer.  hospital satisfactorily to all patients  and the physician having charge of  the patients, unaided by the Hospital  Auxiliary and without the assistance  which the public so liberally some  months ago attempted to give.  Now, sir, I would   like to know by  what authority   the City of Enderby  j or the Hospital Auxiliary are" holding  from Mrs. Sewell   and daughters the  supplies   purchased    by   public   subscription to   be   turned over to Mrs.  J Sewell to be used by her so long as  she conducted a   hospital?   It seems  to me   that   the   supplies should be  made use of, and   in the manner the  j ladies said they would be used when  ! they made their appeal to the public.  j   I wish   you   would   briefly explain  ;the cause of'this apparent "breach of  j faith, or whatever   it may be called.  ' I understand that   at the start there  was some difference of opinion as to  ; what constituted a trained nurse, but  i this difficulty has been overcome,and  j has not, in fact, existed for three or  four'months.   Have the ladies of the  Auxiliary had such, extensive hospital  experience that they are prepared to  withhold from Mrs. - Sewell's private  I hospital the aid the public has given  in the hope of   obtaining out of the  'Sim'j.and uncertain   future a hospital  free of all   cost   to the   city and to  . them, which will be conducted to suit  their ambrosial fancy?  A CONTRIBUTOR.  Enderby, B. C., Dec; 31, 1910.  HUMOR OF   POULTRY PATENTS  EXPLANATION BUT NO  APOLOGY  For the second time since we estab-  j lishing    the    Enderby Press,   thirty-  ,-four months   ago,    we'are this week  .'three hours late in our hour of publication.       Under   ordinary   circumstances   we   would   apologize to our  readers, but we   deem the bause was  just and we are not going to apolo-  'gize.   The editor,  printers,  devil and  monoline . operators    were drawn on  the first game of curling for the sea-  json, and to get   the paper out three  j hours earlier   meant   that we would  I have to miss that   game.   We didn't  I miss it.   There are fifty-two weeks in  11911.    On   fifty-one   of these we can  get this paper out on time.   There is^  4\ist-one-first^game=i-"of;=curling���������������������������of_"tire'  season.   And we played it.     And we  (didn't   win,   either.      And we 'don't  'care, neither.     And���������������������������  CHANGE OF HALL  The poultrymen have definitely decided to hold the forthcoming poultry  show in the   warehouse   back of the  .Poison  Mercantile   Company's store,  :'which.has recently been-fitted up as a  public    hall    by Mr.   Poison.       The  change has   been   made to accommodate the large number of entries being received.  MILK AS A FOOD  I  PRO BONO PUBLICO  I  'a  ������������������  Editor The Enderby Press:  Dear Sir: Will you permit me to  ask through -the columns of your paper what is the position of the Enderby Hospital at this time. Some  months ago I was solicited by the  ladies of the Hospital Auxiliary to  contribute towards the fund being  raised to purchase supplies for the  private hospital then being established by Mrs. Sewell and daughters.  It was, I believe, a general appeal  made to the public, and you through  the Press joined in making it. The  response was liberal, I understand,  and supplies were immediately purchased. I have since learned that  none of these supplies have been  turned over to Mrs. Sewell, but are  stored in the ��������������������������� City Hall. I understand, also, that Mrs. Sewell and  daughters have been conducting then1  If the true value of milk as a food  ;were more fully appreciated, it would  jbc used much more freely. To be  ���������������������������really valuable, even safe, it must be  clean. Milk contains all the ingredients required to nourish the body.  Milk is frequently spoken of as a  complete food. It is to the infant,  but to the adult4t does not contain  enough carbo-hydrates, and is too  bulky. A varied diet is, of course,  necessary, but we should know which  of our common foods furnish most  proteids, fat, and carbo-hydrates.  But milk, to be good, or even safe,  as we   said    above,   must be clean:  PLASTERING ORDERS  Plastering    by    contract    or   day.  Address all enquiries to���������������������������  B.

Lost���������������������������On the track, north of Enderby, a brown silk and Marabout  feather stole. Anyone returning the  same to the office of The Walker Press  will be rewarded.  The most difficult person for the  practical poultryman to get along  with is the poultry crank. He might  be perfectly sane on all other points,  but on that of poultry���������������������������well, they  say he has a bug. It will be interesting to the practical poultrymen  to learn of the many queer inventions patented to bring joy to the  hearts of poultry cranks.    .  In the Scientific American many of  these inventions-are illustrated.   One  Jeremiah Cory, of Missouri, as early  as   1870,    patented    a   device   which  showed inventive "genius.     Cory was  keeping   bees    and   poultry���������������������������a   very  profitable    combination  even  to-day.  The bee   moth,   which works only at  night,    wrought   havoc    with Cory's  bees, so   he   provided his hives with  sliding doors and connected the doors  with each    other   and 'then with the  hen roosts by   means of a system of  links and   levers.   It was all so well  worked out    that   his hens acted as  guardians    over   the    bees at night.  iThe   bees   retired    early.     The hens  soon followed them.     When the hens  r mounted their   roosts the hive doors  [were closed thereby, locking the bees  I in and the moths out.   In the morn-  ji'ng, when the hens left their-roosts,  , the doors   of   the' hives    were auto-  , matically opened,   releasing, the bees  j.bright   ahd   early   for    their    day's  | work. ' ''.'''-'  I   But here is an   invention that is a  real classic.     Sanford    J.  Baker,   of  Waterville,  Me.,    in 1871, invented a  device   to     prevent    chickens    from  scratching up   the    garden.     It consisted of a piece of spring wire, bent  j double with   a    clamp   at the bend.  (This was secured    to    the hen's leg,  ! leaving the two ends of the wire extending for some    distance backward  _ and   slightly    downward. '   Not only  j would this hinder the fowl in scratcn-  ! ing, but the spring arms would force  her forward at   each scratch.   If the  , hen was persistent enough the device  jwoTild-drive    her   out of the garden  and  into- the    next township   before  night.  I Wm. J. Manley, of Erie, Pa., has a  treadmill which may be adjusted according to the weight and agility of  the fowl. Mr. Mauley is a gymnastic  faddist, and the purpose of his contrivance is to force the hens to exercise. On the treadmill, by going.fast  ienoughf=usinf"^b"otirTegs and wings,  the bird eventually reaches the food,  but must keep going in order to remain near the food. By a siight  stretch of the imagination,' one can  see the eggs carried to market on the  endless treadmill chain.  It took E. J. Hanahan, of Tribes  Hill, N. Y., to solve the problem of  curing the egg-eating hen. He connects an egg with ari electric battery  and places it in. such a position that  the hen, in order to get it, must  stand on a metal plate, which at  once closes the circuit. One shock is  said to be sufficient. If the hen is  not electrocuted, she is cured.  Spectacles for fowls is the patent  of Andrew Jackson, Jr., of Munich,  Tenn. The junior Jackson says of  his patent: "This invention relates  to eye protectors, and more particularly to eye protectors designed for  fowls, so that they may be protected  from other fowls that might attempt  to peck them."  FREE  NURSE  SCHOLARSHIPS  The Philadelphia School for Nurses  is a purely benevolent institution.  It is situated.at 2219 Chestnut St.,  Philadelphia, and announces that enrollment for the Spring classes will  shortly begin. This institution is  recognized and endorsed by leading  physicians everywhere. Free scholarships in the two-year course are  available, and provide room, board,  laundering, incidental expenses and  railroad fare home on completion of  the course. A home study course  and a resident short course are also  provided. The school provides full  instruction under safe and whole,  some conditions, and opens the way  to almost immediate financial betterment for those who need to increase  their earning power.

Enderby Poultrymen Heavy Winners  of Specials at Ashcroft Poultry Show  The Enderby   poultrymen who took  their birds to   the   Ashcroft Poultry  i Show last week,   returned home well  ' pleased.

If any of the competing rinks are not ready to begin play  at 8 o'clock, one end shall be counted  as played for every 10 minutes delay,  and the opposing rink, if ready to  play, shall count one point in the  game for each such period of time it  is kept wait  ���������������������������1. In the event of game not starting  at 8:30, the ice shall be open for any  other game.  5. No skip can play a scliedulc  game unless there are at least three  regular members of his team playing.  G. In case of any team being short  of one player, the skip of that team  shall be compelled to choose a fourth  player from the members present in  the rink (until his own player arrives), such player to play lead position.  7.

CARD OF APPRECIATION  , Having sold my stock of furniture,  and severed my business connection  with the people of Enderby, ] take  this means of expressing my sincere  appreciation of the kindness and consideration shown in our business relations, and also to thank one and  all for the pntronage given me. At  the same time, I trust that the generous support given me in the past  will be extended to my successors,  the Poison Mercantile Company and  Blanchard & English.  W. T.  HOLTBY,  Enderby, B.

Not long ago. a London firm had for  sale a million brand-new, single shot  rifles in perfect condition. 'Those belonged to a certain small European  state, which was ro-araiiug its forces,  and was ready to get rid of the obsolete weapons for a song to anyone who  would take them out of the country. A  million rifles with almost unlimited  ammunition would be a serious matter  if they happened to fall into the hands  of revolutionaries.  Now, these rifles which, can bo purchased so cheaply in Kiigland are worth  from live to ten times their original  price-in many parts of Asia and Africa.  The hill tribes on the Indian frontier  think sir highly of rifles that, they will  risk their lives creeping into ..British  frontier posts by night in order to steal  weapons from the racks, The average  Hathan will readily give all that he  possesses for a modern rifle and a small  stock of ammunitioi!.  The Arab tribes and the nomadic  tribes of 1'ersia are equally keen to arm  themselves., and, at prone nt, the wealthiest and most persistent customers for  military weapons of all kinds, field guns  as well as rifles and ammunition, are  the loaders of the Senussi, tho groat  Mohammedan secret society, with its  centre in the wilds of tho Sahara.  Seeing ihe iiuiiicii.se profits of selling  munitions of war to savage or semi-  savage peoples, all sorts of adventurers are constantly engaging in the game,  and warships of civilised powers have  a lively time in trying to stop this extremely dangerous form of smuggling.  dust before Christmas, 11)06, a Bus-  siau revenue cutter cruising in the  Black Sea sighted a largo "dubok." or  lugger, running for Batoum. Something  about her excited the skipper's suspicions, and he ordered her to heave to.  Instead, she clapped on every bit of  sail and tried to escape. But tho cut-  tor had tho logs of her, ran her down  and pointed guus at her, whereupon she  surrendered.  "When tho cutter's people came aboard  they found that- they had captured a  veritable  floating  inferno.  Her cargo consisted of nearly a thousand rifles, a hundred thousand rounds  of ammunition, and about a ton of py-  roxoleuc, one of the most awful explosives known. Dynamite, too. and powder were there, enough to blow a ileet  sky high. These "supplies" wore intended for the Central lievolutioiuiry  L'ommittee. which had its headquarters  in the (Jausasus.  A favorite trick of the gun-runner  who fears to excite suspicion by running into a port is to have tho rifles  paekcl in air-tight tin eases, -which are  concealed in wooden chests to the top  of each of which is fastened a long-  lino witlu a cork buoy at tho end.  Tho cases arc dropped at. a prearranged spot, and the Arabs or others  for whom they are intended go off by  night in small boats: and pick them up.  towing them ashore by means oC the  ropes. ]n case of alarm the ropes can,  of course, lie easily cut.  Throe years ago, there took place a  most amazing tragedy which proves the  risks incurred  by gun-runners,  A three-masted ship arrived off Tunis,  and began unloading cargo into a dhow  (native boat). Some Brench officers,  armed with powerful telescopes, spot-  tod the cargo to be rifles and cases of  cartridges. Tho vessel flew no flag, and  a canvas screen hid her name.  The Breach authorities sent out by  night a number of armed boats which  surrounded the vessel, and waited til!  dawn to board. Suddenly came a terrific explosion. The snot where tho  smuggler had boon lying was hidden by  a cloud of smoke. When it blow away  the vessel had. disappeared. IIor captain, seeing himself outnumbered, had  fired the cargo, consisting of five hundred barrels of powder, and blown himself, his ship, and tho whole of his crow-  to destruction,  ".lim"  saw  her  transformed  head.he  would fall upon her neck and weep witV  j������������������y-  "Uh-huh." said he, when lie came in  that evening, "vou've done it, I see?"

He,  should  receive  his  recognition  and as soon as possible  be given  some responsible work to do.  Bow mothers realise the risk of  over caution and over attention in thei?  children after they arc old enough fcc-  play and romp about. A child is happier with few and simple playthings-  than with a multitude of complicated  toys. There is no such good i'un or  good training as making-one's self useful in doing little things like work,  and it is cruelty to deprive tho child  of this pleasure and stimulus. Lot the  brain and body be trained through  hand, foot and eye. Give the boy a  carpenter's bench; encourage tho girls-  to do housework.  Whore possible, lot both boy and girl  have a little garden patch, if only a few  foot square, ami the care of a few  plants.

So much depends  upon where and how the winter is to bo spent, whether,  social life is to lie all important, whether there is to be a'  succession of entertainments given and attended, or whether  merely the customary round is to bo adhered to. The woman  who goes out constantly and also gives many evening entertainments, requires many-more gowns-than--when-'one or two  dinners a week arid no dances comprise the list of festivities.  There tiro one or dwo statements hitherto accepted as  facts which th>,s year will haw to be done away with���������������������������that  it is necessary to have only one or two well made and becoming gowns in order to bo satisfactorily gowned, for the newest  fashions are too distinctivo and  piououuced to be  worn an  [%������������������ h\     -  vc. ^  Or.

The  radical change of style since last winter has affected all evening gowns as much as the street gowns, and this is quite  unusual, for as a rule, while there are always changes as to  mateiial, trimming and general effect from year to year, there  aie. or rather have been, so many points in common season  ifter season t]iat_often_ it has_bp_eii posMble._ when.economy  the lines of the gown, Bands of passementerie are extremely  effective, less expensive than the embroidery on the material  itself, and there is an apparently endless choice in color and  design. These bands trim the waist, finish tho tunic and tho  sleeves, and the width depends on whether the narrow or wide  lice is the best.  Embroidered bands on brocade are thought by some women to be inappropriate, and they contend that when the  material is of a flowered or figured design the plain satin or  velvet is better, being more of a contrast, but this winter  many of the embroideries resemble so'closely the pattern and  color of the brocades that they"seem only to enhance its  beauty. A band of embroidery around the hem on the waist  and in a diagonal line across the front of the skirt is a popular method of trimming, and when, as is so often seen,������������������the  kirt is cut open at the side, showing an under skirt of another  material, thin embroidery finishing the upper skirt adds greatly to its beauty. Often the design of the brocade, is worked  out in embroidery of heavy silk or of crystal beads, and this  is most effective, for it docs not break into the do.-dgn as do  the bands of embroidered passementerie. All those small,  or apparently small, details count for so much in tho finish  oi the modern evening gown that it is worth while studying  them carefully.  Veiled effects are still fashionable, but the evening gowns  arc now more often veiled with embroidered lace and net, the  plain veiling of voile de soie or mousselinc de soio having  boon so utilized for less elaborate gowns as to make it seem  hardly appropriate for the more costly ones. It seems quite  like vandalism to embroider the beautiful laces and Jaco nets  that are now used for the veiling, but only the finest of hand  work is thought possible, ami it ia contended that outlining  the pattern with crystal, pearl or even jet beads merely  makes the design more effective. Certainly for those who  love to work in beautiful fabrics Dame Fashion has this  year provided all that could be desired, for tho brocades, satin  velvet or crepe, tho exquisite laces and the hand embroidery  are all of the most costly description, and thero is no fixed  rule as to what colors and materials are to be combined, so  that it is really a matter of taste as to what shall be chosen.  Artificial flowers play an important part in evening dress  this season, and many of the smartest gowns have the waists  so fashioned that the flowers are part of the trimming, but so  ananged that they can be changed if so desired. A Nattier  blue satin evening gown trimmed with black lace would not  look half so smart were it not for the spray of shaded pink  velvet roses with green leaves placed in the front of the  waist just where the bands of lace are crossed. A yellow and  white brocade gown would lack color and smartness were it  not for the spray of yellow roses, shading to deepest orange,  that is placed in the folds of brocado that cross above tho  high girdle. Artificial flowers have reached a perfection of  manufacture that makes them appropriate as a trimming  or finish to the most elaborate of gowns, and are often preferable to the ornaments of steel or rhinestone that have been  popular for so Jong. All kinds of flowers known to the botanist, and many unknown, are wonderfully copied���������������������������gardenias,  hydrangeas, calla lilies, orchids and roses of every shade  being the favorites. They are made of silk, satin, or velvet,  and the number that is included in the provision for the  winter season is somewhat overwhelming. At the same time  two sprays will be quite sullicient, if but a little care is exercised in putting them away "between wearings." The dif  ferent shades of blue are so fashionable at present that blue  flowers are in demand. There- are not many blue flowers, but  fashion permits that blue roses, blue lilies and blue orchids be  included in the list of artificial blossoms.  What is the fashionable color for the evening gown this  season is anxiously waited for. There are many different  shades of white, blue, pink, yellow, green and grey to choose  from, while the brocades, with plain ground and 'embroidered  in color, furnish a still greater variety. White or black brocaded with gold or silver is very superb, the latter more  suitable for older women, and the mauve, with silver or gold,  is also to be included. The brocaded and embroidered heavy  crepes all in one color are to be found in all shades, with  fringes and embroideries to match, and are among the very  THE ELECTRICS  OF TASTE  SOME time ago it was suggested that wherever a distinctive flavor is formed in the cooking or eating of certain  things together the reason why they seem  to improve  each  other is that a certain amount  of electrical  action  is  s;et up between them.    Edwin Smith tried numerous experi-  iiad to be consulted, to order only one now evening gown  a season and make those of former seasons up to date by  some trivial adaptation of trimming or line.  Skirts are narrow and scant (the terms are not synonymous to the initialed), not long. Many are quite short, and  beauty of line has ftfr the moment apparently been done away  with in the effort to produce striking and conspicuous effects,  while most elaborate trimmings and embroideries are used  most casually without regard to cost. It is well understood  that every woman is to look tall and slender���������������������������this is the unwritten law���������������������������and when a diossmakor lias to accomplish  t!.esc_rcEv.lts f:n- shoit and itout customers her Viz\i is not an  easy one. Tho low cut eniiec is again demanded for the  more elaboiato evening gowns, two or three inches above the  wtii'-t being deemed quite high, but be it realized that with  this mu-t bo woin a perfect litting brassieio or marvellously  cut cache cornet that will support the bust without giving  the high busted, too well corseted appearance that some -tylos  oi fall gowns seem to lcquiie. Below the waist the corset is  exaggeratedly long and most perfectly fitted to hold back,  bat not pushup, any suportluous fiesh, and particularly for the  avoiage woman inclined to be stout tho waist measure need  net bo abnormally small. At the same time a small wai������������������t  is once again considered a point of beauty. To suggest Meu-  derness is the aim of every dressmaker, and she who can  attain this for her customers is an artist at her trade.  Oddly enough there arc dressmakers .who know how a  gown should be cut to show to the best possible advantage  the 'figure, and yet who do not. in the least understand the  secret of a graceful and at the same time a smart gown.  Others again realize to tho fullest extent these mysteries  of dress and yet cannot attain a good cut. The woman who  herself understands clothes has now an opportunity to exercise her own talent. If she goes to an establishment whore  she can.be certain of a well cut gown she can instruct the  dressmaker as to the disposition of the trimming or the drapery of the few folds that are allowed. Brocades, crepe, satin  and velvet are ail popular this winter, and many of the designs as well as the quality are quite unlike anything that  has over been seen and make superb gowns, but almost without exception these are'expensive. For the less expensive  gown tho satin foundation, with a pattern robe, can be selected by the woman who is counting her pennies, and, as has  been said, if the foundation be well cut and fitted amateur  talent can work wonders with a comparatively inexpensive  net tunic embroidered in silk or in colored beads.  Where expense does not outer into the question there can  be the most superb of gowns turned out���������������������������the foundation of  satin or brocade, with tunic embroidered in jet or crystal or  colored beads and finished with a deep fringe of silk or  beads. Fringe is extremely fashionable and is used in all  widths, several rows of narrow or medium width, or one row  of wide, as is tho more becoming or tho more in keeping with  WHY SUFFER FROM PfLES ?

JANUARY 5,   1911  TWO IMPORTANT EVENTS  Next week Enderby will have two  ver important events take place.  .Monday will be nomination day. It  will also lie opening day for the third  annual poultry show by the Northern  Okanagan Poultry Association. Three  days later will he election day���������������������������if a  poll is found necessary, and the men  to look after Enderby's interests as  Mayor and Aldermen, will have been  chosen. Three clays after the day of  opening the poultry . show will have  closed. It is intimated that both  these events will have an important  bearing on the progress which will  be made during the year 1911.  Certain is it, that the men to he  chosen on the City Council will have  to decide some important matters in  tho next twelve month. The matter  of better roads' within the city limits  will have to be settled. For the past  three or four years we have been  spreading a gravel-clay on the main  streets, at considerable cost, and we  rind them in a worse condition now  than when we started the work. We  shall have to decide upon a permanent road policy, and quit the makeshifts. If wc do but one block of  street in a season, it would be better  and cheaper in the long run than to  spread the work out over more  street and have nothing to point to  in the end. This road problem is  not a simple one. It is one that is  very costly, however, if not taken in  hand right at the start, and carried  out patiently and with thoroughness.  In the municipalities of Armstrong  and Enderby, thousands of dollars  have been simply wasted on the roads  and we' have very little to show for  the enormous expenditure when the  testing time comes.  When Major James Sheppard was  visiting the Okanagan last year, in  the interest of good roads, he told us  at Enderby    that    we were throwing  PROFESSIONAL  i away money on our streets. Major  1 Sheppard is a road expert from the  ! province of Ontario, where they have  ! the road problem pretty well solved.  In his report to the province, Major  Sheppard says:  "To    obtain    the    advantages  and  benefits we must   have a proper system   of   road-making   adopted,  good  machinery and material provided,and  above all,    energetic   and intelligent  '��������������������������� supervision.       The outfits to do the  : work cannot always   be  obtained  by  I the   smaller   municipalities,    so    we  must look  to    co-operation from the  ! combining of a number of these units  lor for    more   liberal    aid  from   the  j Provincial Legislatures.     *   *   * The  ! time   has   passed    for    experimental  road  making.     The  underlying  principles arc well understood.   *   *   The  j inhabitants of   this   Dominion  want  ���������������������������good roads;  they have the money to  pay for them, and are willing to pro-  , vide every  dollar   necessary,  but insist on getting value for their money.  ,To give them that value the following  principles   must    bo    adopted:   First,  drainage;  then   machinery for crushing and rolling stone laid roads, and  third   in   importance   the matter of  material  used."  These are matters   which will   have  :to be    considered   by   the    incoming  'Council.  Just what this consideration  ; will lead to will depend largely upon  the calibre of the men on the Council.  There is also the matter of opening  up the hill properties by roads���������������������������long  promised    but    slow    to  materialize.  Also the matter   of a broader policy  all   round,    which   will    have   to be  adopted before   there is the advance  in the building    up of the town to a  position    compatible    with  its possibilities and surroundings.  Upon the success of the third annual poultry show will depend, in a  large measure at least, the future of  the poultry industry in this section  of- the Okanagan  this association have won high praise  owing to the   success which has followed    previous   efforts,  and already  they have done more to advertise the  possibilities of the district than any  public enterprise ever inaugurated in  Enderby.     Gradually,  the    high-class  !poultry industry   is developing here,  jand it is promised that the show of  ;next week will bring several hundred  birds   together.    All this in view of  | the fact that the association did not  I exist until three years ago, points to  ��������������������������� much bigger things in the future, and  jit is not a vain   hope   to believe the  ! provincial poultry show will one day  he held at Enderby as a result of the  good work done by this association.  Worthington and Mr. Lawes arc of a  previous Council, while Mr. Blan-  chard has been one of the most pro-  | gressive members of the last board  | Mr. Hutchison has signified his determination to drop out; so has Mr.  Hancock. Mr. Evans has thus far  been non-committal. Efforts have  been made to induce Dr. Keith, Mr.  Reeves and Mr. Barnes to accept the  nomination as aldermen, and all have  declined,  However, the assurance given by  the men whose names have already  been mentioned ensures our having  for the year 1911 a Council which  will conduct the city's business with  that degree of economy and broadness which will meet the conditions  in a manner essential to the progress of the town.

The idea, was introduced into the  British Parliament, but failed to become a law. Two cities, however.  Adopted it��������������������������� nirmingham, England^ and  Cincinnati, Ohio.

Jt is rather a  shame, for' it was a good plan, ami in  time the public might have been brought  to see it* utility.  However, here it rests in "innocuous  desuetude" until some progressive  schemer brings it up again.  POWDER IN GLOVES  "Y feet bu'rri' so!

Now this ������������������is -where the wise ones  erred. The colt's owner, Mr. Osborne,  knew perfectly well thai Joe Patchen,  2:01:;'i, was the sire of the world's  greatest harness horse. Dan Patch,  and that Bessie Bonehill at one time  held a Avorld's record for pacing mares,  and he also had groat failh in Ihe offspring of the two"noted animals, but at  same time he preferred to follow  "' and quick returns"  the   youngster   i'or  less interested in harness horses for several  years.  Hodgson landed in Pittsfield :.ll right  and saw .Mr. Osborne and tire colt, but  was somewhat disappointed in the appearance of the latter, for he was a  most ungainly looking animal, having  more the appearance of an overgrown  schoolboy than a choicely bred,member  of   the   equine   family.    Be   that   as   it  may, a  long  trip  had been   made,  and  the   colt,   and   his   breeding  there   was  and his prospects in the stud, so  son bousrht'hiiu and shipped him to his  HodL*  bought 1  farm at "Grillia.  Upon arrival at OMia J'oo Patchen  IX was at once turned over to Jimmy  Powell, one of the younger generation  of eastern Canadian reiusmen, and while  Powell's experience was niore or less  limited, he liked the horse he was about  to train, was bred right for the work  an    indirect    cause    o  deaths.

Consequent.ly he was .started a few  times at the fall fairs in his locality,  I list was never asked to do his best in  company. However, after returning to  Orillia to prepare, for the ice races. Mr.  Hodgson was anxious to know just what  -qieed the son of Joe Patchen possessed,  with the result that Powell drove the  young horse a half-mile over the Orillia  track more than a second faster than  Ihe Canadian record for paring a half-  mile on a two-lap track.  Joe Patchen was not raced at all at  Toronto last winter, where the ice racing  season  was  opened,  but  made  his  ...i.....n  i.n  ,..^,,  the  the  "small  profit  mlicv   to  training  tno races.  "When the "for sale" ad. for Joe  Patches! H". appeared many inquiries  were received by his owner, but none of  thetii had the real businesslike ring to  them, so lUr. Osborne replied to but  very few of tho letters received. However, there was a Canadian located in  Orillia, Out., who chanced to see this  advertisement while wailing in a Lindsay hotel for a train. This man, Mr.  Thomas Hodgson, a business man of  the  northern "town,  had  been  more  or  first start at Lindsay, where he won  defeating the crack pacer, Flying Jib,  Unit had performed so well at Toronto.

V  Dry��������������������������� Farming��������������������������� in Saskatchewan  By Hon.! W. E. Motherwell  ,,   WHETHER or not the term "dry  farming" lias come to stay is  immaterial, but the fundamental  principles that underlie this system of  farming will endure for ever,"with, of  course, such variation in detail as location and the evolution of time may  warrant.  Some sensitive people disliko the  term "dry farming" on the ground  that it is a reflection on their country  and tin admission to the world at largo  that their district is subject to drought.  Admitting Unit this is correct, is it not  belter to face the situation boldly and  prepare for it on the principle' that  "forewarned is forearmed," and that,  nothing in the end is gained by pretending to have what you have not.  The meteorological records of Saskatchewan go to show that we have an average annual precipitation of about seventeen inches, and there is no getting  away- from the fact that this is usually  looked upon in more humid countries  as only about one-half the amount necessary to grow profitable crops. Until  a few years ago it was thought to be  impossible to grow cereal crops in the  greater portion of Saskatchewan. Intelligent tillage methods, however, timely applied, have demonstrated in every  district that crops can be grown with  very much less precipitation than was  supposed, provided the moisture is systematically and economically taken  care of. As a matter of fact, the dryness of our seasons is, in one sense, our  salvation, as reasonable drought is essential  in most districts to ensure the  " maturity and saving of cereal crops in  our ordinarily short growing season.  But a dry climate to be a blessing must  be prepared .for, otherwise it will blight  and disappoint the hopes of the husbandman.  In all semi-arid regions the besetting  hindrance to successful farming is  drought, consequently the basic principles underlying dry farming must, and  do, imply a system of scientific and  timely  tillage, such  as will best offset  . the danger of scanty precipitation���������������������������in  other words, we must accomplish in the.  growing of crops, with an a vera go annual rainfall of seventeen inches, what  more humid countries accomplish with  a much more generous rainfall, [n the  pioneer days of Saskatchewan, scores  and hundreds of settlers left the country believing that no solution of "this  problem was within the realm of probability, but, as has often previously  proven the case," "necessity was the  mother of invention," and tho sturdy  pioueer farmers of those days, assisted  by flic experimental'farms and-the agricultural     press,     demonstrated    very  . clearly that our strong, retentive, heavy  clay soil was capable of producing good  crops with very much loss even than  seventeen   inches   of   annual   prccipita-  ��������������������������� tiou. ���������������������������  While  this  is  true,  it  must  be  ��������������������������� admitted that this could be done year  after year in succession without stopping at varying intervals of three or  more years and storing up moisture  under a system of approved and improved modern summer tillage (commonly called summer-fallow) that will  be alluded to later.  Some writers'have undertaken to lay  down a hard-and-fast rule with regard  to the best method of tillage io pursue  under semi-arid conditions, but so far  as Saskatchewan is concerned, such ri-  ' gid'ty, applied to our varying soils,  altitudes, exposures, precipitation, and  climatic conditions, would only lead to  loss and disappointment. Variations in  method must and can be pursued without departing from principles, and herein lies Ihe importance of every farmer  understanding something of the science  of soil physics in order to have the  ability to prescribe such crops and tillage methods to meet the requirements  ==ot!=his���������������������������pa-rt-ienla-r^farmf^jiist^as^ir-iihy^-  sician prescribes to suit the individuality of his patient.   .  The following features, usually identified with dry farming where longer  and warmer seasons prevail than in  Saskatchewan, and considered by some  to be fundamental, should be carefully  noted as to their applicability where  fat lands and shorter growing seasons  are. the general rule: First, summer  fallowing  at  intervals   of  every   third  "year" or thereabout; second, deep "plow:  ing; third, deep sowing; fourth, thin  sowing.  The modern summer fallow was introduced into Saskatchewan over twenty-  five yours ago, not for tho purpose 'of  renewing a "worn-out soil, as was once  commonly thought, hut for the purpose  of gettiiig the soil into the best condition to absorb moisture and then holding it there for the uso of succeeding  crops. Thus Ihe shortago in each year's  precipitation was overcome, and full  crops ensured. In order to do this thoroughly and most effectively in Saskatchewan, it was found that the land  intended for fallow after receiving  some form of fall tillage should be  ploughed as early ns' possible in the  spring after seeding, that it might be  in the most receptive condition to fully  absorb and save from waste all the  early and later rains. This should be  immediately followed by surface tillage  to put the necessary non-conducting  soil mulch on the top to intercept capillary movement and prevent loss of  moisture by evaporation. By this-system the soil, if thoroughly and intelligently handled, will be" found moist to  a depth of.five or six feet, and a sufficient reserve of moisture for the growing of at least two successive crops is  secured, even though drought should  occur.    This  system was practised  for  many years, and is to a large extent in  vogue yet.  The more important foundation principles of dry fanning were understood  and practised in Saskatchewan years  ago, although much improved upon  since. But with tho passing of time,  cheap land, root fibre and humus, many  advanced and thinking farmers are  now searching for a more economic,  permanent and less extravagant system  of farming. The profitable returns  under this method have caused land  values to increase so vapidly that it  now seems a wasto of capital to have  one-third the tillage acreage idle each  year. Furthermore, this system, while  restoring nothing to the soil, rapidly  dissipates its humus, and thus, as the  years go by, reduces its capacity to  absorb and retain moisture.  AVliile summer fallowing is recognised  yet as tho very foundation "stone of  successful agriculture in Saskatchewan,  still it can and will, T believe, be sup-  pleiimented by other intelligent tillage  methods which will Incgthen the time  between fallowing seasons and obviate  tho necessity of such a large acreage  being idle each year. If the care that  is put on summer fallow to conserve  moisture be followed up iu each succeeding year by fall discing immediately  tho harvest has been taken off, and by it  more generous.,use of the diamond harrow at every available opportunity���������������������������  even in many cases after the grain is  up in the spring, and by packing the  reserve of moisture iu the fallow could  be made to extend over a much longer  period than two years.

TotokU  in or fallowing a quarter section five  inches deep every third year, would it  not be more economical to fallow one-  half that amount, say, ton inches deep,  thus assuredly sloring'up a much larger  amount of moisture and extending its  benefits over a longer term of years?  The more frequent use of the disc and  drag harrow before referred to would  not only help to control evaporation,  but would also kill innumerable weeds  that frequently prove such a continual  -drain on the soil moisture, To plough  ton inches deep could only be advantageously done in Saskatchewan by  subsoiliiig.  Too much indiscriminate advice to  plough deeply tinder all circumstances  in Saskatchewan would be unwise and  misleading, and must meet with disappointing results, "but that all clay soils  should be stirred deeply at least oneo  after being broken up is becoming more  and more apparent. Deep ploughing���������������������������  to .increase the soil's capacity to store  moisture���������������������������at .^intervals of, say, ton or  tAvelvc years, to be followed by shallow  ploughing or surface tillage in intervening years to hasten early maturity,  is now thought to be the ideal method  in   many  localities.  The danger of too frequent deep  ploughing is obvious. Should it -be  followed by a "dropping" season the  growth of straw will be too rank and  maturity retarded, which tends to run  the crop info the period of early fail  frosts before harvesting is completed.  Nevertheless, deep tillage is necessary  to provide''against drought particularly,  and' will be accompanied by the risk  of! slow maturity only iu the first succeeding crop. This risk could be offset  by special attention to packing and  growing for the first year crop suited  to such a condition of soil. -��������������������������� During the  subsequent eight or ten years the land  should be ploughed to a normal depth  of, say, four to five inches, which will  tend to hasten maturity and yet provide a satisfactory seed-bed. I believe  that subsoiliiig will in time become a  recognised necessity,.particularly in our  heavy clay soils that arc, under shallow  tillagp,    comparatively    impervious    to  moisture.      "^HnlleY^ri^cnt'coiullTions a great deal  of the copious rainfall of Juno and  early duly runs off into adjoining  sloughs, creeks, and coulees, and is lost,  (whereas if subsoiliiig had been performed even once this excess of: rain  would freely percolate into tho soil as  it fell and would remain there in reserve to be drawn upon during a period  of subsequent possible drought. This  is one way whereby all of us can assist  in conserving one .of .the most important  natural resources of our semi-arid open  plains���������������������������the rain and snowfall.  We do not know who is responsible  for teaching tho agricultural heresy  that sowing deeply insures the crop  against drought. The argument implies  that a shallow rooting can be converted  into a deep roofing one simply by planting deeply, But anyone who has given  any attention to cereal growth must  have noticed iliat any of the small  grains, if planted iu n moist soil deeper  than about two and one-half inches will,  immediately upon showing surface  growth, assert its shallow growing tendencies by throwing out a new set of  rootlets about one and one-half or two  WOULD NOT BE WITHOUT  BABY'S OWN TABLETS  Mothers having once used I-htby's Own  Tablets for their little ones would not  be without them.

Thus  with us it is'a mistake tp sow too deeply  with the idea that such a practico assists' in' resisting drought. Also, this  too deep sowing has other serious disadvantages,- such as delayed germination, disposition to smut, tardy maturity, and a-weakened vitality of the  plant generally.  All the best thinkers iu the dry farming world claim that better results can  be secured from moderately thin sowing  than from thicker sowing. The usual  reasoning of those who support thick  sowing as being best in dry countries  is that it will produce a heavy thick  foliage, which by quickly and thoroughly shading the ground, economises and  conserves much moisture. But a little  inquiry into this popular fallacy will  soon dispel it. "Recognising' that the  moisture supply is our limiting factor  iu crop production, with a given amount  in a cubic yard of land, it is obvious  that, say, fifty plants will exhaust that  moisture more quickly than a fewer  number would do, as each plant is a  miniature suction pump continually  drawing upon tho soil moisture and evaporating it through its leaves. This  process is accelerated by the dry winds  which sometimes blow during the hot  summer. Given, however, a good re-  servo of moisture in the land and a  reasonable number of-, plants thereon,  the ill effects of such drying winds are  "not .only- averted, but turned to good  account by "stimulating rapid maturity.  Were the cubic yard of soil in question  loaded with one hundred plants instead  of fifty, it, is evident that its moisture  would be exhausted in about half the  time, and that the supply would be  insuflicient to mcQtthe heavy demands  made upon it during a period of drying winds and excessive evaporation. On  the other hand, if the cubic yard of soil  has been deeply worked in a district  where the soil is'peculiarly retentive of  moisture, and precipitation is usually  generous, too thin sowing would induce  excessive stooling and correspondingly  delayed maturity, both of which must  be avoided in Saskatchewan.  What, then, should govern us in the  amount to sow? JO our previous reasoning is correct���������������������������that thick sowing is  likely to be more susceptible to damage  by drought, while too thin sowing runs  one into danger by frost���������������������������this is a question in the solving of which the tiller  of the soil will require to exercise sound  .-judgment, based upon local conditions.  As much discretion as would be used  in loading a team for a trip to market  should ,be exercised in determining the  amount of seed to be sown on an acre  ofjand, for as many-factors-ontoi-inl"  the question, .lust as the weight, condition, and temperament of the team,  the nature of the land and the condition  of the wagon, the character of the  trail, its present condition, its  length, and the weather on the day  in question all enter into the decision  as to what load shall be hauled, so tho  mechanical condition of the field, its  probable reserve of moisture, the stage  to which Ihe season has advanced, the  presence -or-absence-of- weeds, -and the  variety of seed being used, are among  the factors that must be considered by  the careful farmer when he is determining the quantity of seed ho will sow to  tho acre, in short, land should be sown  according to its known capacity to  carry a large or small crop. Mxperioncc  has 'demonstrated that in Saskatchewan  the quantity of wheat to lie sown per  acre should' vary from three pecks to  two bushels,  in Saskatchewan tho season just closed has given ample and profitable opportunities to study the system of dry  farming practised hero as against the  methods of newer settlors who have  brought their old-timo practices with  them, and who invariably let go old  methods with a great, deal of natural  reluctance. While tho eastern half of  Saskatchewan, being that portion east  of the third meridian, certainly had  slightly more -precipitation than the  western half this season (15 and Jl  inches respectively), that fact in itself  does not account for the marked difference in the crops of these respective  areas. A great portion of eastern Saskatchewan lias been settled for from ten  to twenty-five years, and farmers located therein are familiar with the best  results under semi-arid conditions. In  the western and newer portion, however, large tracts of land have recently  been taken up by settlers unfamiliar  with such conditions, or possibly insufficiently equipped, with the result thai  such have experienced some loss and  disappointment  during  the  summer  of  mm.  Saskatchewan,  however,  ns  a  whole  has a magnificent crop, even with tho  on the side of the house where  -winter blasts strike hardest always  has a lower temperature than the  rest of.the house. There are times  when it is necessary to raise the  temperature quickly or io keep the  temperature up for a long period.  That can't be done by the regular  method of heating without great  trouble and overheating the rest of  the house.
