If ever there was need of road repair wak, it is on the road from Enderby to Lansdowne. This piece of  road is in the Spallumcneen Municipality, or the very bad part of it is,  and our good neighbors should put a  man on' it with a shovel to let ofi  the water. The cost would be very  little to put the road in good repair.  J. W.

Gradually  this fashion of throttling the town  will become obsolete, and it will be  to the advantage of ..all. There is a  negative and affirmative side of this  question, as there is to all questions.  The merchant believes that the per-i  son who sends his money to a mail  order house is, to say the least, unpatriotic. On the other hand, says  one, the buyer maintains'that much  as he dislikes to send his money  away, he cannot pay the prices asked  =by--the-4ocal-=merchant^and=suppor_t.  his family. While there has been, no  doubt, some cause for this complaint  on thc part of the mail order buyer,  when conditions .were quite different,  we do not believe there is any .sound  argument in such a claim now. The  merchants of Enderby are doing all  that is in their power to make it unnecessary for anyone to send out of  town for anything in the line of dry  goods, boots and shoes, clothing and  staple goods." They have in stock a  splendid assortment, and the nuality  of the goods is quite as good as is  carried by the large city stores. It  should be the pride of our people to  show appreciation for what they are  doing in this line, and encourage the  good work. Get in touch with the  home merchant; keep in touch with  him. Tell him what you want, and  if he has not got it, ask him to send  for it. He will gladly do it. And  when he does, buy it; don't tell him  he is a cent or two higher than  Beatum. If our people would do the  right thing by our home merchants,  our home merchants would turn the  markets up side down to bring to  Enderby the best the world has, and  at prices as low as they can be made  for good goods. Get away from the  foolish notion that the home merchant is here to pile on the "price.  He is here to live and let live, the  same as you and I; he is here to build  up the town and make it a more  beautiful place to live in; he is here  to lend his capital and influence in  the work of Enderby; he contributes  to your churches, your schools, your  charity organizations, your betterment and the betterment of all; he  pays his quota in the building of  sidewalks, grading of streets, and  up-keep of the city; he builds business blocks and employs heads of  families who live in the town, and in  turn lend their assistance in the  work of building a better town.

It  would be better to suggest the need  of somebody to enforce a curfew-law  as well as the many other city laws,  which, as another correspondent  pointed out in last week's issue, are  constantly ignored and freely sidestepped. The disgraceful conduct of  the boys and young men, hallowe'en  evening, when they maliciously destroyed city and private property,  without let or hindrance and nobody  to say them- nay, is simply carrying  to a logical end the attitude that  has been permitted to exist so long,  ���������������������������an attitude of indifference to local  by-laws, and the official positions of  the men whose duty it is to see that  they are enforced. This heathenish  custom of believing that license is  given on hallowe'en night for any  young buck with more strength than  sense to get out and molest his  neighbor or his neighbor's property,  is twenty years out of date. There  is no reason in such conduct, and  anyone caught in the act of destroying property, hallowe'en night or any  other night, should be severely punished. "What is everybody's business is nobody's business," hence  it is, that without a police officer,  we are in a worse' condition than if  we were not incorporated, for then it  would be the provincial constable's  duty to prevent such occurrences.  No matter what the cost, Enderby  should have a duly appointed and  thoroughly qualified police officer,  whose duty it shall be to enforce the  by-laws of the city and maintain order.   At the present time and under  E  ooo  DITOR HAGGEN of the Revelstoke Mail-Herald, recently  was up against one of those  civil cases brought under the criminal code. He was tried before Justice Morrison, and acquitted of the  charge of obtaining money under  false pretenses, the jury adding a  rider to their decision that "the jury  feel and strongly believe that criminal proceedings should never have  been taken against the accused." It  will be interesting to learn Justice  Morrison's views on the case, and I  am_going_to__give    some of the evi-  ney and Robt. Johnstone.   Mayor De-'  Harte', of   Kelowna,    was nominated  by the Liberals to contest the riding.  ENDERBY PUBLIC, SCHOOL , .'

It  makes one glory in our courts to see  a Justice ring so clear for a square  deal, and no man cad read this simple colloquy without honoring the  court more and the minions of the  law less:  Judge Morrison to accused���������������������������Do you  mean to tell the Court you were  placed under arrest in connection  with this .matter? ____ ._.  Accused���������������������������Yes, my lord, I was.  Judge Morrison���������������������������And put behind  the bars?  Accused���������������������������Yes, my lord. I was sitting in the office of the chief of police when this man Foster, the police magistrate, came in and told the  chief of police to take me out of  there and put me behind-the bars,  and this was done.  Judge Morrison ��������������������������� How long did  they keep you there?  Accused���������������������������Till about 11 o'clock at  night.  Judge Morrison���������������������������Have you a wife  and family?  Accused���������������������������Yes, my lord.  Judge Morrison���������������������������And you have  your home in Revelstoke?  Accused���������������������������Yes, my lord.  Mr. McDonald (attorney prosecuting) protested against accused being  allowed to make these statements  before the jury.  Judge Morrison���������������������������Well, you have  put this man with his back against  the wall, and I am going to Bee that  he gets fair play, and that all the  circumstances connected with this  matter are fully and fairly placed before the Court. (To accused���������������������������Have  you any explanation as to this action taken against you?)  Accused then narrated the story of  the fight that had been going on in  Revelstoke during the past year, of  the active part he had taken in it as  editor of the Observer, and a general  review of the circumstances.  CITY  COUNCIL  MEETING  i li  All the members of the City Council were present at the meeting held  Monday evening, except Aid. Lawes.  ==The=plans="and==J=specifications;?rsu._^=  mitted by the architects for heating  the City Hall were referred back for  some minor    changes,   and the clerk  was instructed to call for tenders for  the work as soon as the changes are  made.  Mayor Bell was appointed delegate  to the meeting of B. C. Municipalities to be held at Nanaimo on Nov;  11th, and as Aid. Lawes anticipates  being in the coast" cities "at the time,"  he, too, was asked to attend.  The letter from Mrs. S. Poison,  presented some weeks ago, asking a  donation from the city to assist in  furnishing a ward in thc Vernon hospital, was taken from the table and  the clerk was instructed to reply  that the Council regretted its inability to comply' with the request, as  the funds placed at the Council's disposal for the year were exhausted.  City Clerk Rosoman submitted a  list of persons and firms who had  taken out trade licenses, and the  same was ordered posted in the office  for the inspection of anyone who is  interested.  Aid. Evans called attention to the  constant blocking of the main street  by the trains, and it was decided to  ask the mayor to take the matter in  hand and see if the matter cannot be  remedied.  Complaint was made to the Council of the serious nature of the depredations of night-prowlers on hallowe'en evening, but as nobody was  caught in the act, and the city had  no police officer whose duty it was  to prevent such occurrences, the City  was unable.to do anything. On the  night mentioned, some thirty feet of  sidewalk on Knight street was torn  up, also some on George street, fences were ruthlessly torn down and  stretched upon the sidewalk, and  much destruction of a like nature  was done to private property. .<HH>������������������-0 .-04K>4K>-t^>fK>4K>-������������������*0+<.  THE "TOFF"  fO+O ���������������������������*-0*-OX>4H>^ ox. o ���������������������������*-<>������������������> <������������������  A quarter of a century ago    the  mining  camps of  New  Mexico offered  refuge to any man desirous  c���������������������������' sinking his identity, since curiosity was one of the few vices they  did not encourage.    To question _  new-comer  as  to    his. antecedents  was not only a breach of etiquette,  but a dangerous act in a community where every man carried weapons and resorted to tlicni on the  slightest occasion.      Unlcs-s volunteered, a man's very name remained  u, secret, he being���������������������������for convenience  ���������������������������] .baptized with a nickname, picturesquely inappropriate, as a rule.  "Toff"  brought his    name    with  him���������������������������"printed  all    over  him,"   as  someone  remarked;  and  certainly  his appearance was unique for the  locality.    Sandy .Ridge was twenty  miles from the railway, and the intervening stretch of scrub and desert had to be crossed on horseback,  uo that the    sudden    advent of a  ycung man, attired in a tweed suit,  with immaculate linen,  was sufficiently  startling  even    without the  portmanteau  plastered  with labels  reminiscent of European travel.  But these items were    trifles  in  comparison  with  the. monocle decorating the stranger's left eye-socket,  the effect of    vvhich    upon the  crowd at the    Miners'    Arms was  simply  paralyzing.     Sentences  remained part-spoken, glasses halted  half-way lo thirsty lips, and a man  who  was lighting his pipe  burned  ' Lis fingers badly.   Thc stranger appeared quite unconscious of the interest he exciled.    Addressing thc  saloon-keeper���������������������������known as "Ginger"  because  his  hair  was  not red���������������������������he  said coolly :���������������������������-  "Can 1���������������������������er���������������������������have a room here?"  Tho saloon-keeper, a man of few  words- until  roused,   when  his  vocabulary at once became extensive,  nodded silently; but a great hulking  miner,   named    Baynes,    who  had  been surveying    the    visitor    with  marked disapproval, struck in :  "S*1.'. young feller, air yo goin'  to stay long?"  Thc "young feller" turned slowly and regarded the speaker  through his monocle with an air of  languid curiosity. Baynes would  have faced the muzzle of a six-  shooter without blinking, but a  few moments of this cold, silent  scrutiny made him squirm. Then  came the drawling reply:���������������������������  "If I find the���������������������������er���������������������������locality suitable, it is���������������������������er���������������������������possible I may settle here���������������������������with your permission, of  course."  A burst of laughter from the red-  shirted, brown-throated throng  hailed the obvious discomfiture of  tho questioner. Thc stranger picked up his bag and followed Ginger  high above his head.    Every man land led her gently to a prostrate  present knew the significance of the  action, and promptly scuttled oxit  cf the lino of fir... The stranger,  thus left standing alone, became  aware that the poised hand held a  heavy Colt's revolver, and suddenly realized that he was facing death.  One swift downward drop of thc  threatening arm and all would be  over. His face became a shade  paler, his eyes stared tensely, but  he did not flinch.  "Keep your arm quite still,  Baynes; I have you covered," said  a sharp, resolute voice.  Tho bully's face changed, and hc  paused in the very act of lowering  his weapon.   A lightning glance towards    the door    showed    him the  glistening barrel  of  a Winchester  repeating    rifle,    pointed    at    his  heart.     "Take his gun away,  one  of you," continued    tho    speaker,  and when this was done he stepped  through thc open door, his weapon  Hung easily across thc crook of his  left arm.   ready for    instant  use.  fie was a man of about thirty, of  lithe, athletic   build, and -with a  pleasant, sun-stained face. He was  carefully groomed,  and his apparel was conspicuous for its fine quality.    Be surveyed thc discomfited  bully with contemptuous good-hu-  ffior.  "If you  are still    bankerin'  for  you  i side door,  thus  s  threat to  "fake somo  o'  through  Baynes  thc frills out'n him."  "He's a real toff, boys," cried  one of thc spectators, and the title  was forthwith adopted delightedly.  "Beckon he knocks spots off the  Dandy for style," said another.

The rencontre took place a feu-  hours later, and there were "pro-  not  Having reus journey,  bar  line  the  ccedin's  certainly, though  of the nature expected,  moved thc stains of  "Toff" was standing in the  watching the scene. The long  of drinkers at the counter,  .. various couples .gambling at the  tables set in thc open space before  it. tho. strange medley of tongues���������������������������  for every nation seemed to be represented���������������������������combined to form a picture which could nol fail lo intcr-  os.i anyone upon whom it had not  staled.  Presently a burnt of laughter from  the other end of (he room attracted  his attention,  and  he saw tliat  it on mo from a group of men  who  had partly   . nr-mindcd    a   young  girl.   She was barely eighteen, with'  groat, dark o.ves and a slender figure, the grace of which her shabby  clothing could not hide.    Just now  ������������������ihc was   . krinking   timidly ��������������������������� |)c.r  olive cheeks stained crimson���������������������������from  Baynes,   whose    bloated    face  wa.s  thrust   towards   her.      Jfis  unwelcome attentions frightened her as  much as they amused the immediate onlooker,    and   "Toff"  caught  ;in appealing look as her gaze met  his own.  In three strides he crossed the intervening space, caught the bully  by thc shoulder, and whirled liim  out of the girl's path so vigorously that the man lost bis balance  nnd went sprawling on the sanded  floor.  "Vou coward. ��������������������������� .. torment .  child !"Jie cried, Ike affect ion goiio  from his voice, and an ominous  glint in his grey eyes.  Tna second the fallen man w.s-  on his feet again, a venomous snarl  are  blood, I'll take a hand with you  myself." he remarked, slowly; and  then, as the other did not reply,  be added, sarcastically, "Shootin'  'Unarmed strangers appears to be  his limit, boys," and turned with  ji smile to "Toff," hand outstretched. "I like you." hc said. "Let's  take a walk and get acquainted."  Such a frank proffer of friendship from one who had just say.cd  his life could not be declined, and  the pair left the saJoon and strolled  towards the pine-covered ridge  which sheltered tiie settlement.  The stranger's effort to express his  gratitude was cut short.  "He's a mean hound, that Baynes, and he'd have fixed you good  if I hadn't happened along,"    the  other  said,  cheerfully.    "Can  shoot any?"  '/Toff" confessed that his ac-  qaintance with firearms was limited  to the slaughter of inoffensive  game; he knew nothing of pistol-  shooting. His companion's face  grew thoughtful. "That's bad," he  said. "It's a -tough crowd out  here. I reckon you'd better make  tracks for civilization again or  you'll be playin' priucipal part in  a funeral."  Thc new-comer's under-jaw stiffened. "I'll take my chance," he  said. "By the way, I should be  glad to know to whom I am���������������������������er���������������������������  indebted."  The languid drawl brought a flicker of amusement into thc other's  eyes, but he replied, gravely,  am Dan Bevis, commonly called the  'Dandy,' a gambler by profession."  "Toff" bowed. "My name is  Frank Beverley," he began, and  stopped as he saw Dan's smiling  face.  "Don't you belicvo it, my son,"  replied thc gambler. "Your name  is 'Toff from now on in these parts  an' you'd better let her go at  that."  Beverley laughed,  and promised  to "let her go" accordingly.  =^Nat_fMllypt1fc==COT"WrYati_'_"t"u"rrv^  ed on the girl who   had so nearly  cost Beverley    his    life,  and    the  gambler told him the little that was  known about her.    She was called  Nita, and was an orphan.     Years  before her father had been shot in  the saloon at Sandy Hid go, and the  proprietor's wife���������������������������then    alive���������������������������had  adopted thc child.   Since the death  of her benefactress Nita had paid  for her protection by doing all the  household drudgery    for thc surly  Ginger.  pine. She sank down, but in a moment was up again, beseeching him  lo fly���������������������������crying that his life was in  danger.  "Why do they want to kill me'?''  be asked, quietly _ and the girl's  eyes turned from his, while a vivid  Imish of shamo flamed in her  cheeks.  "For stealing,'-' she faltered, and  went on to toll him how, soon after  1'is departure���������������������������two days before���������������������������the  saloon-keeper's horse was stolen,  and the hoof-prints showed that it  had been taken to the "plain. The  animal was thc only shod one in  thc settlement. "Toff" listened  gravely; he knew that the offence  was more serious than murder, and  tliat but for the timely warning he  would have walked to certain death.  "Thank you Nita," he said. "You  don't believe it, do you?"  The girl shook her head, but he.  eyes were downcast, or he might  have read in them that his guilt  would have made no difference to  her. Thc assurance bf her faith  pleased him curiously, and almost  gaily he said, "Well, and what's to  be done now ?'~  "You must   hide;    como, I will  show you,"  she whispered, eagerly.  He followed obediently back up  the trail he had just traversed, until presently she turned and glided  beneath thc deeper shadow of the  .pines. He could see no sign of a  path, but her lith_, active figure  ilitted unhesitatingly through the  labyrinth of undergrowth until she  reached the great odorous _ush of  (lowering shrub, by tho side of  which trickled a tiny rill. Pulling  aside a huge.branch of blossom, she  showed an opening in the rock.  "I found it long ago, and only  Indian Joe knows of it," she explained, proudly. "They won't find  you here, and I<-,vill bring food until Dandy Dan comes; he will help  you."  She was gone before ho couki  thank her, and he was conscious of  a strange sense of loneliness. Thcn  suddenly he laughed. That he a scion  cf a great house, dcpjrted because  a rather heavy crop of wild oats  bid fair to sully an ancient name,  should be "in danger of being hanged as a -horso-thief,- had a grim humor which appealed fo him; it appeared as a kind of retribution upon his family.  That Baynes was at the bottom  of thc affair he did not doubt. Thc  bully had left the settlement thc day  before himself,- o_r. nsibly to -visit  Santa Fe. What easier than to  hide in the woods until Beverley  oepartcd, steal the horse, and lead  it to thc hitter's hut so as to throw  suspicion on him. But Beverley  knew this mere theory would not be  listened to- Dan only might get  him a fair hearing, for the gambler's repute for quick and accurate  shooting made him respected.  The days passed,    however,  and  Bevis did not   put in    an appearance.    Nita came daily with  food,  and the captive soon began to watch  for    her    dainty     figure   eagerly.  Sometimes she    would    prepare "a  meal for him,  spread his blankets  afresh,  and   "tidy up,"  as hc put  it, and he found a new pleasure in  liic^g rac_e___o.Uier_.e_ve ry____o_v_enie nt..  But thc day came when she did  not appear,  and    the second  was  half done  ere    he heard  a slight  rustling of  the  bushes,   and  stepped  to meet  her.      To-his disappointment, it was Indian Joe who  nothing to that- of the condemned  man.  "Deedes!" he cried- "What on  earth are you doing here1?"  The visitor looked surprised in  his turn; this stalwart, bronzed,  and manly young fellow was a  strong contrast to the languid, dissipated aristocrat he had expected to find, but he knew him, nevertheless.  "I came in search of you, Sir  Frank," he replied, quietly, and  reading the other's look, he continued: "Yes, your uncle and cousin were both killed in a motor accident, so that thc title and estates  come to you. It has taken me some  time to trace you."  "Sorry to have given you so  much trouble, Deedes, especially as  it is too late," said Beverley, with  a grim smile. "These gentlemen  are about to hang me for horsestealing, you sec."  It took thc family lawyer some  few moments to realize that the  ���������������������������whole scene was not an elaborate  joke got up for his benefit, but  then the outragcousness of it revolted all his legal instincts, and  ho poured out a flood of forensic  ley replied, and forthwith consulted Dan as to the best means.

"You'll come to England and se������������������  us, Dan?" said Beverley, at parting.  I'No,'! said the other "Civilization stifles me; I can't breathe in  a town."  He smiled as he .aid it, and Beverley suspected nothing. But Nita,  her woman's instinct, quickened by  the love in her own heart, knew  that there was another reason.

On our way we noted  that the weather was favorable to  my endeavor. We therefore ordered the torpedo destroyer Escopette,  generously placed at my disposal  oy our Government, to start.  "At 3-30 a.m. we went to tho garage and examined the aeroplane,  which is my eleventh. I started  tho engine and found that it worked  .well.    All was ready for the start.  "Afc four  o'clock  I took my seat  ^in tho aeroplane and made a trial  flight of one quarter of an hour  around Calais and its environs. Tho  circuit was about fifteen kilometres  (p% miles)." Having completed it,  I descended upon tho spot on the  cliff from which I intended to start.

Mr.  Grimes   .Vas Cured   of  .Early Rising.  Mr. Grimes had a large lawn in  front of his house and another at  the side, and it was his,custom to  get up and run his lawnmower at  five o'clock in the morning. In vain  his neighbors protestod. In vain  they complained that he woke them  up just when thoy were sleeping  the soundest, and that they could  cot go to sleep again.  "Nobody has any business snoozing after five o'clock," . he said.  "Go to bed early and get up early.  That's tho way I do. Think I'm  going to-wait half a day for you people to sleep off the effect of your  late-hours, when my grass needs  cutting?    I guess not!"  Then his neighbors did a little  planning. They found out - that he  weufcto.bed afc nine o'clock, and  they made their arrangements accordingly. Punctually at nine  o'clock the next moonlight evening  the sound of a lawn-mower in action  was heard directly across tho street  from thc Grimes dwelling. Presently another one chimed in, then another and another, and in less than  fifteen minutes at least a dozen  were in active operation.  At ten o'clock or thereabouts an  upper wrindow in the Grimes house  was closed with a vicious bang, but  the ratble of the machines ceased  not, and the noise ��������������������������� became even  louder. It was a bright night, and  the industrious neighbors, bareheaded and in their shirt-sleeves,  appeared to be enjoying their ex-  erc}so.___l_here_=was^no^more^grass,  to be cub, but they continued to  go through the motions. In accordance with tbe prearranged plan,  there was no conversation. The  lawn-mowers wero permitted to  make all the noise, and fchey needed no assistance.  At eleven o'clock the window that  had been closed-was opened again,  and the unkempt head of Mr.  Grimes was thrust forth.  "Say," he called out, "how long  are/you fellows going to keep up  that racket?"  "Not more than an hour longer,"  answered a voice.  Admiral von Tirpitz has exercised a controlling influence at the  German Admiralty for the past  twelve years, for it was in 1897,  when in command of Germany's  East Asiatic squadron, that he was  recalled from activo service to the  Admiralty. Previous iio that year  be had already shown himself to  possess a talent for organization  and a faculty for grasping essentials which has brought him to-day  lo his exalted position. His rise has  ben rapid, but it has given the lie  to those who say that the caste system of Germany prevents any but  those of aristocratic birth from finding office under Government.  His career began at the age of  sixteen, and to-day he is sixty and  in no way inclined to regard himself  ?_ approaching the close of his active life. Many years of service remain to him if he has any docisivo  voice in the matter, for Admiral  von Tirpitz, will not lay down office  until the naval laws thafe he has  fashioned are an accomplished fact.  BUILDING UP A NAVY.  The system by which Admiral von  Tirpitz has been evolved reflects  tho triumph and the advantage of  continuity in a State policy. A  shrewd, practical man, his knowledge of thc sea has been gained afc  sea, and under circumstances which  have shown him the necessity for  the Fatherland to possess a fleet in  being. Combining seamanship with  a ready grasp of affairs and a turn  for statecraft, the energy of youth  carried this naval officer rapidly up  the Ladder of promotion until the  stage had been reached where the  radical ideas of an ambitious sea-  dog were bound co receive attention. At sixteen a cadet, afc twenty  a lieutenant, and at five'-and-twenty  a lieutenant-commander, after  twenty years of service he was flying thc penantof a Rear-Admiral  and was known as a responsible  officer, with a habifc of thinking for  himself and a contempt for the traditions of bureaucracy.  His first work of an epoch-making character was when he was promoted Chief of Staff at Kiel, the  head-quarters of Germany's battle  squadrons. To Kiel Admiral von  Tirpitz brought the experiences he  had gained abroad and the stored  up observations that he had made  in the days when his ideas could not  secure a hearing. At that date the  German fleot was in sad need- of  mosquito flotillas, for the torpedo-  boafc establishment had been neglected and was undeveloped.  WITH PRINCE HENRY- . '  Wrhen his efforts afc founding an  adequate torpedo-craft establishment-.���������������������������which included schools for  the special training of officers ���������������������������  had proved successful, the Chief of  Staff began to grapplo with the task  __ TeTrrg. h i'z i ng^t horsy stcmro f"_ o if=  knew that he had fought a battle  and won a, great and memorable  victory.  GERMANY WAKING UP.  Success was ushered in by the  Naval Law of 1900, which was born  from the patriotic outburst that the  incident of th������������������ previous year had  caused. Honors fell to Admiral  von Tirpitz, and orders for big ships  came to the yards. After two  years' service at the Admiralty ho  was mado a Vice-Admiral. The  passing of. the Naval Bill of 1900  brought him horeditary nobility,  and tho launching of tho big ships  for which that Bill provided made  him a full Admiral. The supplementary Naval Bill of 1907 won him  the Order of tho Black Eagle; whilo  tho present situation in Germany  has shown that his policy has the  support of tho German people.  In appearance Admiral von Tirpitz scarcely suggests the man that  his policy has shown him to be.  Tall, stout,' and bald, his manner  is more academic and professional  than bureaucratic. At the same  time, there is nothing of the doctrinaire about him, and he explains  his policy with a simple phrase that  he has merely made good Germany's naval deficiencies. Shortsighted, with a flowing white beard  shaped in the style of.Dundreary's  whiskers, his mien is paternal until  the spirit of the man is roused by  opposition.  LUCK IN THE HORSESHOE.  "Well, say." spoko Mr. Grimes  again, after a pause, "if I'll ngrco  not to run my lawn-mower before  seven o'clock in the morning after  this, will you stop that noiso and  let me go to sleep?"  "Wc will."  "Well, it's a bargain," he said.  A  NUN WORK ABLE  SCHEME.  "No, James, I cannot marry  you!" .    :/.  James looked frightened, hurt,  displeased.   "Wliy not?" lie asked.  "There is too much compatibility  of temperament about us, James,"  said tho girl, her ,lip curling with  faint scorn.  "Too much! compatibility? But  isn't that a good thing.'asked  the puzzled young man.  "Not   always,"    she  'For instance,  judging  answered,  from thc  size of your income, if we were married I should undoubtedly insist,  from motives of economy, on dispensing with a servant and doing  my own housework, and in your  comptability, James, you would undoubtedly let me do it."-  trol which had reduced tho navy to  a state of confusion. In the years  between 1891 and 189G tho work that  ho accomplished afc Kiel had such  an effect upon tho Admiralty in  Berlin that thc dual authority  which existed between the Naval  Department and Kiel head-quarters was abolished and many other  administrative-reforms introduced.  In the midst of his work afc Kiel  hc was dispatched in command of  the squadron with which Prince  Henry of Prussia made the tour of  the East in 1S9G, while in tho following year ho was recalled and  given a free hand to carry oufc for  himself the changes which ho had  consistently advocated. Germany's  naval ambitions took definifco shapo  in 1897, and since that timo, under  bhc fostering hand of tho man who  was responsible for their inception,  they have grown into the present  flourishing flecb.  ���������������������������  The march of events has certainly assisted Admiral von Tirpitz to  realize his ambition, for his crusade lacked, in his early years of  office, thc propelling impetus of a  national illustration of the correct-  ness-of his views. Opportunity,  however, comes to all men who aro  able to think for themselves, and  to think a., little in advance of their  neighbors.  At the moment when he was  struggling to win popular _ opinion  io the support of his policy, and  was finding ifc difficult by reason of  the increasing burden of taxation  which a big ship programme was  throwing upon thc shoulders of the  nation, thero came in the autumn  _f 1899 the Bundesvath incident,  when a German mail packet v.n.  seized by an English nian-oi' . :u-  In  that hour Admiral von T::p!t,.

He  was noted as a story-teller, and his  stories wero always well suited to  bis argument. Mr. W. A. Mowry,  in his "Recollections of a New England Educator," recalls one of  them.  "Compromise! compromise!  What does compromise mean?    I  will tell you.  "A colored man met a friend one  day, and said: 'Sambo, Sambo, do  you know dat toder night I was  sorely tempted ? You know^ I used  to steal. Well, since I jined de  church I stopped stealing; but you  know. " Mr- Johsing's shoo store?  Well, toder. night I-.was in dat  shoe store,land I looked on de shelf  and I see a pair of boots, jes' de  nicest pair of" boots���������������������������jes' my size,"  number, fourteen.  " 'Dere was de debil, and he say,  "Take 'em, take 'era." Den de  Lord say, "Let 'em alone; dat's  stealin'." But I wanted dem boots;  mine all out at do bottom and sides.  Dere was de debil and me, and we  both say, "Take 'em." But do  Lord say "Don't you take 'em;  dat's stealin'.'.' Now dere was a  clear majority of two against one.  " 'Jes' den Mr. Jonsing, he leeb  de store, and ho leeb me all alone.  Den de dobil say, "Take 'em quick  and skedaddle." I could take dem  boots and chuck 'cm under my coat  and go right away, an' Mr. John-  sing would nobcr - know -nottin'  aboufc ifc. But, bress dc Lord 1 I  'stood de temptation; I compromised, and took a pair of shoos instead.' "  Myth is Traced to the Greeks and  Their Sea God Poseidon.  Of all the emblems for good fortune the horseshoe stands among,  the first. Everybody knows it isi  unlucky to pass a norseshoe on the  road without picking it up. It is  a luck emblem of the greatest power. Again wo aro indebted for this  statement to old tales, centuries ia  age, that have descended from father to son, from mother to daughter, .through the years, says tho  Team Owner's Gazette   ,  The old myths repay research.  Tho luck of tho horseshoe has a  most respectable beginning. It is  traced to tho religion of the old  Greeks and their oca god Poseidon,  who was identical with the Roman  sea god Neptune.  To Poseidon horses were sacred,  and to him fchey    wero sacrificed.  Poseidon was believed bo have created the first horse when ho struck  the ground with his trident and a  horse sprang from the hole, which  afterward became a spring.   - The  sea god was the lord of springs.' To .  him all springs were ascribed.    In,  the shape of i!a'horse he sometimes "  wandered by the shores of his ocean  domain,  and where he struck his  hoofs deeply thorc the waters gushed out and permanent springs were.  found.  This is the reason why horseshoes,  are reckoned lucky. Going to tho  root of the matter one sees a nature  myth as the root principle. Fromi  the sea all rain comes and to the.  sea all springs owe primal origin,;  and to-the rain and the fresh wat-i  era, sea derived, wo owe all fertil-j  ity on earth. .  The old Greeks therefore worship-j  ped Poseidon as the fortune giver j  through his springs. They gave him;  horses, his precious beasts, and they! "  adored tho footprints of horsea:  when they found them, for they. '  might be the very footprints of thai  god himself. ��������������������������� '  Whon horses came to bo shod the  transition of the luck emblem from  the footprint itself to the Bhoe  mark���������������������������practically the same thing���������������������������  was.easy.  Pegasus, tho winged horses,' from  whose hoofs the water springs gushed copiously whon he came to earth,  has been credited with the origin  ot the horseshoe luck:  The horseshoe was the specifio  against earthquakes. It would keep  a house safe from harm by earth  shaking. Again ono perceives the  sfca myth���������������������������Poseidon, was the shakor  of the earth.

As a boy of fourteen Sir Donald!'  Currio, the late millionaire shipowner, commenced to earn his living as a barber's apprentice, ultimately entering the shipping office  of a Greenock relative as a clerk.  "Thorough" was his motto, and by  doing everything that came in his  way as well as ho could hc proved  a valuable servant of the Cunard  Line, before hc struck out for himself.

Talking of art treasures  reminds one of tho manner in which  Sir Donald was onco ..caught napping. Among a quantity of furniture to be sold by auction on ono  occasion was a chair with thc name,  "Dunottar Castle," ornately carved upon ifc. He decided to purchaso  ic. and instructed a commission  agent to buy it at any cost.  Tho agent started the bidding at  $25,'. and was surprised to hear another well-known dealer double hia  bid.

For the past two or three years it  has been generally conceded that thc  single-plank toe-path along the south  side of Cliff street from Belvedere to  the Vernon Road was a disgrace on  the main street of the town. "But,  the Bank of Montreal is going to put  up a bank block on the corner, and  the sidewalk would be made useless,  while the building is going up, and,  besides, maybe the bank will build  its own sidewalk,���������������������������and one of cement  or other modern sidewalk material,"  has been the argument put up. We  have permitted this eyesore on the  main business street until some of us  have grown to believe a toe-path is  necessary to remind us of the good  old days when wc pitched quats between trains and went swimmin'  while waiting for customers. And  those were good old days, to be sure;  but what's the matter with making  the present day just as good���������������������������and a  heap better���������������������������by doing what ought to  be done and letting to-morrow's possibilities take care of themselves?  Thc Bank of Montreal has concluded  not to build this year; it may not  build next year; so why not lay a  sidewalk and make Clill street present the right appearance?  Bell was called upon to make a few  remarks. He has been closely associated with the growth of Methoism  in the Enderby mission, and gave a  brief but interesting talk on the accomplishments of the faithful few  who have been connected with the  work in the years that are passed.  Tin's was the greatest work they had  ever attempted, but he had no fear  that it would fail. He read the  names of eleven men, citizens of Enderby, who were heading the subscription list, whose aggregate subscriptions reached ?2,100. Thc cost  of the building in the course of erection will be in the neighborhood of  ?7,000, and the building committee  felt assured that the necessary sum  would be forthcoming as it was required.  WILLIAM  FOLKARD  KILLED  CORNER-STONE  LAYING  The corner-stone of the new Methodist church was laid Saturday afternoon at 2:30, Rev. Mr. White, of  New Westminster, superintendent of  missions in B. C, making the address on the occasion. Rev. Mr. Gifford made a few introductory remarks. He held in his hand, he said,  a copy of the authorized version of  the Bible, a copy of the Methodist  hymn book and a copy of the church  laws governing Methodism to-day.  These were to be placed within the  stone, together with a brief history  showing the growth of the work in  the Enderby field. When, in the regular course of events, the stone will  be opened by those who follow us  he had no doubt but that they will  find that the version of the Bible  in use at that time will "be greatly  changed; and the hymns we sing now  will not be sung then, and the laws  of the church will have been greatly  modified. As men and communities  advance, they change their laws governing them. It has been true of the  past, and he believed it would be  true of the future. Let us hope and  endeavor so to live that they who  come after us will honor us for the  work we have done.  In his brief address, Rev. Mr.  White complimented the Methodists  of Enderby and the community as a  whole, on the work that had been so  bravely undertaken, and. he hoped  and believed that the splendid edifice  in the course of erection would add  not only to the spiritual growth of  the church and community, but add  also to the material assets of the  city and district. He recognized that  there was in.it something indicative  of our human weakness, and went so  far as to say that he believed the  day would come when there will be  no division of the churches, but such  a day will not come until there  is first the coming together of business enterprises and thc spirit of  co m m erci al i sm=_s=a-H-l. i n g^of^th e=pasfc.  He was pleased to see that in this  building there had not been neglected  the various rooms that were to be of  service in caring for thc general welfare of any who avail themselves of  its advantages. The auditorium was  not to utilize the entire building,  but there were to be other rooms, to  be utilized in building up the practical side of Christianity as well.  Following Rev.    Mr,   White,   Mayor  Enderby was tossed into the shadow of sorrow last Thrusday afternoon by thc sad accident which happened William Folkard while at  work with the road gang under William Hancock, on the Deep Creek  road, eight miles from Enderby. He  was engaged in blowing stumps on  the roadside, with others of the road  builders, and carried in a small  wooden box six or eight sticks of dynamite. Just what caused the accident nobody seems to know. He was  25 or 30 feet from Mr. Hancock and  others of the men when a terrific explosion took place ;where he was preparing a stump to be fired. When  the smoke cleared away they saw  thc young man had been mortally injured. He was blown ten feet from  where he was working, and one leg  and arm and one side of his body  were terribly lacerated and torn.  Only one explosion was noted, and  the stump he was working at was not  disturbed, so it would seem that the  powder in the box was set off either  by thoughtless handling or through  the ignition of the fuse attached to  one of the caps which he carried- with  the powder.  It was seen at once that Billy was  mortally wounded, and Mr. Hancock  himself hurridly drove him to Enderby, after first making him as easy as  possible upon a light spring mattress. It was about 2 o'clock when  the accident happened, and by 3:20  the boy was in the home of his sister  Mrs. Jas. Grahgm, Cliff street. Dr.  Keith was absent on a call in the  country, and had to be sent for. It  was evening before any surgical aid  was administered. On examination  it was found that the bone of the  right leg had been blown bare of  flesh, and about four inches of the  bone shattered at the knee. The entire side of thc body was cruelly torn  by the force of the concussion. It  was quickly seen that little could be  done for him here aside from easing  the pain, and on Friday morning he  was taken to the Vernon hospital. In  the afternoon the leg was amputated  and the thumb and.two fingers taken  of! the injured hand. At 5 o'clock  the patient came out of the anaesthetic, and rallied considerably, but  it was only temporary, and at 7:30  on Saturday morning he passed away.  Funeral services   were held at the  St. George church, Sunday afternoon  Rev. Mr. Leech-Porter conducting the  service, and at 2:30 the funeral cort-  age started for the Landsdowne ccm- j  etery.   It was one of the longest ever j  seen in    Enderby,    despite the  cold, j  drear afternoon. I  Wm. Folkard was a sterling young j  fellowr, 23    years    of   age, and spent j  most  of his years at Enderby.     He !  was a    general   favorite    of all who  knew him.  ==iW_.enii=lcavingHiome=Monday=imorn;:=  ing to go to the road camp, Billy  went back a second time to kiss his  aged mother good-bye. Sunday the  mother and boy were talking over  tlie dangers of handling powder, and  Mrs. Folkard warned liim to be careful, lest an accident   should happen.  "Well, Mother, if I get blown up,  you will be a thousand dollars in!"  said thc boy, jokingly.

Metcalf, who in accordance with thc decision arrived at at  the meeting of the Board of Horticulture held at Vernon in June last  that he should investigate the markets and the   general    conditions of  thc fruit trade in thc three western  provinces, and .having spent the intervening months in" travel and study  of this question, has ;'ust- made a  very comprehensive report to the  Minister of Finance. In his investigation, Commissioner Metcalf visited  every point in the three provinces  where British Columbia fruit is, or is  likely to be marketed, and his findings are of intense''interest to every  fruit grower, as well as the Okanagan district as a whole.  "Before going into detail," he says  "I think it would be well to dwell  for a moment on general conditions.  First, thc market for British Columbia fruit is almost unlimited, because  the population of the three provinces  east of the mountains is increasing  by leaps and bounds, and wealth is  increasing almost as fast as the population.  "British Columbia is the nearest  and most natural fruit producing  market for all this territory, and no  matter how fast her fruit production  may be increased, it can never increase as rapidly as the consumptive  demand of the market. More especially is this true of the demand in  Alberta and Saskatchewan. These  provinces are hardly touched by the  producers of Eastern Canada, who  are to some extent at least supplying  Manitoba. The further west you travel | from Winnipeg the less you see of  eastern fruits, with the exception of  apples. Eastern Canadian apples are  shipped everywhere; indeed, this year  they are being shipped even to our  own local market to supply the  shortage.  "Great care was exercised in securing the opinion of wholesalers and retailers of   our   fruit  at   the present j  time, and also our methods of pack-1  ing and  grading,   and  the  prices  of I  our fruit in comparison with American and Eastern Canadian..  "I found the general consensus of  opinion very favorable to our small  very favorable to our small fruits.  The criticisms offered were that,  while the fruit itself was the best the  British Columbia producers had still  very much to learn in the matter of  packing and grading. . Small fruits  should be carefully graded into large  and small, . and baskets, should be  more tightly packed, and more carefully faced. Uniformity of size is  greatly prized, and dealers would apparently rather have a smaller berry  than even larger berries irregular in  size and thrown into the. baskets  haphazard. These remarks refer  specifically to strawberries, raspberries and blackberries.  "British Columbia cherries are not  quite so . favorably regarded as the  smaller fruits, and here the difficulty  has been largely caused by shipping  fruit from the Coast districts as far  east as Winnipeg. This fruit does  not hold up well and should only be  shipped to _ the nearest Alberta markets, and should then be sent chiefly  by express. All that has been said  of cherries applies with equal force  to, plums. The only cherries and  plums that it is safe to ship to distant markets in Alberta, Saskatchewan and Manitoba are those from  -Vancouver ���������������������������Island, ...Kootenays.  Ver,  ular district. The varieties most  desired by the dealers in the prairie  provinces, can n all be grown well in  British Columbia, and growers should  push the increase of their orchards  along these two lines; first, a very  rapid increase in all standard varieties now grown, and in planting new  orchards to seek to have large quantities of the varieties specially called  for by the prairie .markets.  "The aggressive measures being put  forward by Eastern Canadian and  American shippers of the Western  and Pacific Coast states to capture  the fruit markets of the Prairie Provinces, are, matters for immediate  consideration by the growers.in B.C.  "Ontario fruit growers have had  four or five representatives covering  Alberta, Saskatchewan1--''and Manitoba  this season, pushing the sale of their  products; further, associations have  been formed in Ontario with the special object of shipping to the west.  The results have been a larger consumption of Ontario fruit than ever  before in the west, and an extension  of the territory supplied much nearer  to the Rocky Mountains than they  have ever come before. Their fruit  crop was ��������������������������� a particularly heavy one  this season, and they realized lower  prices than were paid for our fruit.  Ontario growers shipped to ��������������������������� both  jobbers and retailers. '  "Western and Pacific states are following much the same line of attack,  though they "��������������������������� confine their sales to  jobbing houses only. In addition to  a diligent canvass for business they  have approached the railway and express companies for reduced rates,  and, though they have not so far  succeeded in this matter, the fight  will be kept up.  "The fruit jobbing trade of the  prairie provinces is a very considerable extent in American hands.  There is a system of jobbing houses  controlled by American men of capital scattered over the Canadian west  and also in several of the Western  states in the Union. There are. nine  houses at present, * * * and others  will be opened wherever a good opportunity persents itself.  "The American capitalists as well  as the local men in connection with  each branch house, hold stock in all  the houses, both on the Canadian  and American side,, and in addition  the American capitalists collect a  brokerage fee on every car of fruit,  both citrus and deciduous, going into any of these houses. They have a  number of orchards of their own, the  fruit of which is sold to the various  houses.

These fruits compare most  favorably with the same fruits from  Washington and Oregon, with which  they come directly into competition.  The flavor, color, and packing are  highly- commended, - and all-that is  necessary is to keep up and improve  the present high standard.  "British Columbia boxed apples  hold a very high place in the estimation of the fruit trade in all of the  three provinces. Much of the packing is equal to anything from the  American side, while the color end  flavor arc quite as good as the very  best Ontario apples. The apples  most highly prized are those from  the Okanagan, Vancouver Island,  Salmon Arm and the Kootenays, but  Lower Mainland apples will be welcomed once the growers in these districts give more careful attention to  spraying, pruning and thinning, and  all details necessary to grow good  fruit.  "A very important matter for tho  fruit growers of British Columbia to  bear in mind is the urgent need of  increasing the supply of all varieties  of fruit grown. Wholesalers and retailers alike complain that the supply of B. C. fruit is not sufficiently  large or constant to meet the requirements of their trade. Another  complaint is. that too frequently  when asked for a car of one variety  of apples the reply is,'I cannot give  you more than half a car, but I can  make it up with something just as  good.' This system will not do. In  the past the B, C. grower has largely  contented himself with following the  line of least resistance, and has  grown only those varieties known to  be adapted to the soil of his partic-  J. F.

CHEAP CONCRETE HOUSES  TO BE CAST IN ONE PIECE IN  FOUIiTEE.: DAYS TIME.  IIouso Containing Six Rooms anil  Rath May be Erected for  $1,2*00.  ��������������������������� Two years ago Thomas A. Edison  announced that he had in von ted a  series of moulds wherewith any de-  sirod numbor of small houses could  bo cast in single blocks of solid concrete in a few days timo and at  trifling oxponso. Tho plan, its inventor claimed, would wipe out tho  city tenement and would enable  poor workingmen to own and occupy their own homes in tho country. Tho world greeted Mr. Edison's announcement with incredulity. Architects, buildors and engineers were united in deriding tho  project and its inventor.  But Thomas A. Edison was not  seoking popular favor. He had  faith in his invention and no  amount of expert disapproval could  lead him to abandon it. To-day  the whole project has boon worked out in detail. Tho plans have  been drawn, the patterns made  and perfect models cast in miniature The finished moulds themselves are now being manufactured.  Tho first full-sized ho uso will be  cast within a few weeks.  With thcso new moulds Mr. Edison claims that he will bo able to  build a house complete for_ $1,200,  and furthermore that the job will  be done within fourteen days. The  house is planned to be  TWO STORIES HIGH,  with an attic and a cellar, and is  to havo a ground floor 25 by 30 feet  in size- It is intended to bo built  on a plot 40 feet front by 60 feet  deep, leaving a space, for a lawn  and a small garden. On tho first  floor will bo a living room 14 by 23  feet and a kitchen 14 by 20. On  the second floor will bo two bedrooms, on������������������ 14 by 12 feet, the other  Id by IB feet, a largo hall and a  bathroom. The attic floor will contain two more bedrooms, each 25  by 10 feet. Tho collar, whicli extends under the whole house, will  include tho boiler, wash tubs and  coal bunker.  Tho cnfcii_ house���������������������������walls, roof,  floors, stairways, partitions, door  frames and window frames���������������������������will bo  cast in ono piece. Evon the laundry tubs, tho bathroom fixtures,  Uic interior decorations, and the  ornamental panels will be included in tho solid shell.' It is claimed  that the surface left by tho moulds  will bo 'sufficiently smooth to require no added finish except tint  or paper. Thc oo������������������fc of tl*o houso  -81,200���������������������������Mr. Edison claims, will  include the installation of heating  and plumbing systems as well as  tho mere erection of the shell. Ho  lays particular emphasis, however,  on thc fact that this minimum price  is possible only whero tho houses  aro to bo put up  IN LARGE NUMBERS.  _.!____���������������������������_-__���������������������������_Jj_____���������������������������__.___.J?01!Sfok wh������������������ 1e  jeofcions. Ifc is claimed that he has  produced a mixture of cement,  water and crushed granite which  has almost tho  CONSISTENCY OF WATER,  which will flow readily through tho  smallest channels, filling all interstices, and yet will hold in suspension it(? heavier aggregates- This  has been accomplished by adding  to tho concrete a small proportion  of a certain colloid or clay.  Tho method of pouring is quite  simple and inexpensive After the  forms havo been set in placo and  bolted together the concrete will  be mixed in largo rotary mixors  and dumped into tanks placed on  top of tho moulds. 'A number of  pipos will lead tho mixture to van-  ous points in tho roof, whence it  will flow down and fill all parts of  tho moulds from the footings in the  basement to the tip of tho roof.  A complete set of moulds will  cost $25,000, whilo the necessary  plant will cost $15,000 more. Successful operation will require six  sets of moulds to keep tho men and  (machinery constantly employed.  Thus ifc will bo seen that a firm  whieh intends to use thc Edison  moulds extensively will require a  large amount of capital���������������������������$200,000  at least,  It is said that Thomas A. Edison will not be financially interested in tho uso of hia moulds for  houso building. He has devoted  his time and his genius to tho invention not with tho thought of  personal gain���������������������������he has already secured all the money ho needs and  cares for through other sources���������������������������  but with the intention of placing  within reach of the tenement dweller a home of hia own in the country where ho may live in comfort  and with somo degrco of privacy.  It. Thomas A. Edison has accomplished this���������������������������and ifc would seem thafc  lio is well advanced on tho high  road to success���������������������������then he has performed an enduring service to all  humanity.   r .j,   THE TERRACE ON THAiHDS.  original  Humility is never conscious even  f itself.  sale  Thomas A. Edison's  scheme was to design a set of  moulds for a two family house. This  plan was abandoned in favor of thc.  one family dwelling. Tho moulds  that have been finally adopted aro  of cast iron about an inch in thickness, with backs rc-enforcod by ribs  and flanges. They arc to be set on  a concrete footing that forms a part  of thc basement floor. Four days  will be allowed for the erection of  the moulds. Each houso will require several hundred pieces, which  must be fitted together and securely locked.  Six hours will bo required for  pouring the liquid. Four days aftor  (.he pourinp. the dismantling can  bo done. Six more days aro to be  allowed for thc hardening of the  concrete. Thus, thc in von tor claims  thc, houso will be completed and  ready for tenants two weeks after  the preliminary work is done. This  length of time may be reduced by  particularly favorable weather conditions. It is estimated that with  six sets of moulds 144 houses could  be built in a year.  Two groat objections were raised  to Mr. Edison's plan when it was  first announced. In tho first place,  ho was told by expert builders and  engineers, a house of concrete could  not bo cast all in one piece, for the  reason that thc mixture of water,  cement and broken stone would not  flow smoothly through tho many  small channels of the mould if it  (thc mixture) were thick enough to  hold the broken stone in suspension. In thc second place, if the  house wero to bo built cheaply it  would need to be entirely devoid  of ornamentation, and therefore  would be as ugly as ,.in. Mr. Edi-  pon lias overcome both of these ob-  Wltcr. M. Ps. nnd   Their   Friends  Have Tea nnd Strawberries  "Tho torraco of tho Houso of  Commons is tho placo whero the  giant strawberries may be had, and  it is also thc resort, of labor leaders and their lady friends," writes  the London correspondent of Town  and Country. "Up to a few years  ago the long sweeping terrace with  its beautiful aspect on the river was  a sort; of holy of holies, devoted  only to the creme de la crcme of thc  exclusive friends of exclusive members of Parliament;.  "Bub that was in the days when  broadcloth coats and choker collars with stocks and beaver hats  were still seen in the precincts of  Westminster; beforo the days when  Keir Hardie flaunted his independence by wearing a deer stalker hat  and a suit of Harris tweeds and a  victorious red tie standing out like  a challenge.  "A generation ago an invitation  to tea on tho terrace was of such  a nature that a refusal was out of  the question. A tea then meant  what ifc imples, tea, with very indifferent bread and butter and very  inc.ig.st".bio cake." "Since .luTOiTnc  tea on tho terrace has de vol pod into thc largest possible strawberries  than can be found on the market,  very thick Devonshire cream, cakes  that would have been a ere. it to  Savarin and waitresses attired like  those at Lyons's popular restaurants, instead of the old time British man waiter.  "You can always see Keir Hardie and Will Thome and Mr. Henderson and Will Crooks, the leaders of socialism, ciccroniug their female constituent, in tho direction  of the big strawberries. But for  these gentlemen, who arc very  much in evidence, ifc is thc most unassuming place in the world. You  can see hero Cabinet Ministers diffidently threading their way  through the crowd of Labor representatives, and apparently with  humble mien accepting gratefully  the smaller strawberries that are  vouchsafed to them.  "At the end of the terrace the  chairs and tables, the crockery, the  china and the napery are obvious-,  ly of finer make. This is where the  lords do congregate when they have  tea���������������������������if they havo ifc. You see only  here and there an isolated peer, but  seldom are there any ladies. On the  terrace one day this week there was  tho usual sprinkling of Americans,  who seemed to take much more interest in tho House of Commons and  its institutions than most English  people do, In fact, according to  an official, nine-tenths of thc people who seek admission to the gallery and who ask to bo shown over  the two houses a''c tourists from  the United States."

Vladimir Fcdoreff, of St. Peters*  burg, Russia, says Siberia furnish-,'  cs a largo quantity of ivory to the-1  markets of tho world, but that.th.,  producfciou.of it belongs to another)  age and to a specie3 of animal that  docs not now exist. I  Tho ivory is cut from tho tusks  of mastodons, whose skeletons aro  found frozen in masses of ice or,  buried in tho mud of Siberian rivers  and swamps. The northern portion  of thc country abounds in extensive bogs which aro called urmans.  In these are found the tusks of the  mastodon, from which it is inferred these animals lost their lives'  'venturing upon a surface that  'would not bear their weight.  Evon to wild animals these ur^  mans aro forbidden ground.    Tho  nimble stepping broad-hoofed rciiw  deer can sometimes    cross    them.

When an  ico pack breaks down a river bank  or oods tear up a frozen marsh  or the summer thaw penetrates a  little more deeply than usual into  tho ground some of these antediluvian monsters aro likely to be exposed.  In many cases tho remains are  so fresh aud well preserved, with  their dark shaggy hair and under  wool of reddish brown, their turf ted  ears and long, curved tusks, that  all the aborigine's and even some  of the .Russian settlers persist in  the belief that they are specimen^  of animals which still live, burrow-,  ing underground like moles and dying the instant they are admitted}  to the light.

The French Government has just  introduced for use an ingenious automatic device for registering letters. The letter is dropped.into a  box and a nickel piece, purchasable for 5 cents, placed in the slot.  T' o crank is turned, a numbered  receipt falls out, and tho corresponding number is stamped on the  letter.  The ingenious feature of the machine is the device for preventing  the U6e of any except the nickel  coin. This is accomplished by means  of a magnet which attracts only  iron and nickel, the latter very  feebly. But the slight attraction of  the nickel is neatly calculated, and  as the coin falls the attraction is  just sufficient to retard it, and  makes it fall into the" pocket which  operates the mechanism. - An iron  piece, on the other hand, would be  strongly attracted, miss the pocket,  and be ejected. All other coins also are ejected.  80ME  LARGE  SALARIES.  t  Rome interesting inside facts are occasionally divulged in regard to the enormous salaries earned by some insurance  agents.  It ia reported that two agents recently appointed by th* National Life Assuraiico Com-  Sany In one of our large western cities  are earned over Two Thousand Dollars  ($2,000.00) a month from tbe time they  started to get business for this Con?pany.  Of course, these men are hustlers, and  are well equipped in every way, possessing even small motor cars to cover the  territory more rapidly.  We understand, however, that any man  who has real ability in this line could do  as well.  One of the reasons for the success of  National Life, agents is the splendid  standing, of the Company which is shown  in their advertisement elsewhere in this  paper. If it has ever occurred to you to  take up the Lifo Insurance business yoa  cannot make arrangements with an  easier Company to oecure business for  than the National Life. And they need  an Agent right in this territory. Com-  tnunicate witn the head office.  The bark of the average dog is  worse than his bite; tho bark is  usually kept up all night.

One morning during the past winter, while it was still dark, Grimp-  son crept downstairs and set to  work to clear the snow from the  front of his residence. He worked  like a nigger for an hour and a half  and when he trotted off to business he chuckled at# the thought of  the pleasant surprise which was  awaiting his wife.  When he returned to lunch he expected the subject would be mentioned, and he was not disappointed.  "That man did Ins work remarkably well," said his wife. "There  ���������������������������wasn't a bit of snow left when he'd  fii nished."  "What man1?" gasped Grimpson.  "That man you engaged to clear  away the snow," -was the reply.  "He was just finishing when I came  down. I gave him a quarter. Was  that right, dear?"  Grimpson didn't speak for some  minutes, and when'he did his wife  got up from the table and left him,  as he put it, to "havo it out with  himself."  BATTLE ROYAL WITH A WHALE  The enormous strength of a large  whale was demonstrated by the recent experience)of tho steam whaler, Sampson, in the Norway seas. Off  bandefjord the cannoneer of the  Samson succeeded in lodging a harpoon in the flank of a whale, which  in tho eyes of tho sailors was of  monstrous length. Tho whale took  to flight, towing the little steamer  after it. When the rope had run  out to its full length the engine was  reversed, so that, normally, it  would have given a backward speed  of 10 knots. Still the whalo continued to tow the vessel during a  period of eight hours, at the end of  which tho cable parted, and tlio  chagrined crew saw their prey escape with the harpoon.  HONESTY IN ADVERTISING  Is of prime importance. The man  who over advertises hurts himself  more than as if he advertised none.  The Gillette Safety Razor people  claim no quality for their article in  the columns of the daily press that  thc dealer would not claim face, to  face with the prospective custom-  ex . Plain every-day, clear-cut talk  is the most impressive to the plain  Canadian citizen that reads it.  Dealers and consumers should appreciate these methods.  A country minister in tho course  of his visiting stayed at a house  where a roast chicken was served  for dinner. The chicken looked  good to him. "Well," he facetious-  1} remarked, "here's where that  chicken enters the ministry."  "Hope it docs bettor there than  in lay work," rejoined the small  boy of the family, who recognized  an old barnyard retainer.

The medical advisers and engineers of the London Water Board recommend the storage of raw river  water prior to filtration as a means  cf purification. Time is regarded  .%. an important element in the disr  appearance of disease-breeding substances in water, and the best effects would be obtained by storage  for not less'than 30 days. So long  a time, however, would demand the  use of immense leservoirs, and it  is thought that a shorter period  might bo adopted, together with  the use of intermediate means of  purification by mechanical filters or  precipitation tanks between storage and sand filtration. It has  been shown that the number of  micro-organisms iB very considerably reduced by storage. The engineers also report that storage  prolongs tho life of the filter beds.

Canadian houses stated, however,  that they were not confined to American fruits, but were prepared to buy  in the cheapest market, and were  prepared to buy British Columbia  fruit whenever they could get a sufficient supply; that they had already  bought considerable quantities and  were prepared to buy still largei  supplies in the future.  "In addition to the American system of jobbing houses, there are n  number of independent houses engaged in the fruit trade of thc pra-  rie 'provinces. * * * These independent houses employ in all about 100  men. In addition wc have a host of  Associations, unions, exchanges and  individuals shipping to jobbers and  retailers from Ontario and British  Columbia. There is one auction mart  for fruit in Winnipeg, and very large  quantities of fruit have been shipped  to it this season, more especially  from Ontario Thc prices realized,  however, can hardly have been satisfactory to thc growers.  "In the matter af prices, wholesale  men generally contend that our prices are too high for them to go in  and buy our fruit freely, and that we  will have to lower our prices if we  would meet American competition.  On the other hand, retailers to whom  fruit is shipped direct are ouite satisfied, as our prices are less than  those charged by the wholesaler to  the retailers.  "There are three methods by which  British Columbia fruit may be handled for sale in the markets of the  prairie provinces. First, through  selling to thc present jobbing houses.  Second, Through selling to the retailers direct, ignoring the jobbers.  Third, Through establishing our own  jobbing houses and selling to the retail trade. This latter method would  entail distributing houses with cold  storage at various points, and agents  or travelers to solicit business. Further, in' order to retain customers  throughout the year, it would necessitate the handling by our jobbing houses of early American deciduous fruits and all varieties of  citrous fruits. In the event of methods first or second being adopted, it  would still be highly advisable, if  not actually necessary, that a.ents  be maintained to sell and supervise  the arrival of fruit, and report on  its condition, and adjust any claims  that may arise.  "There are a few points that  should be carefully observed in the  loading of all  fruit cars.   They are:  1���������������������������Place most perishable fruit,  pears for example, nearest the ice  bunkers.  2���������������������������Leave plenty of ventilation along  bottom of car and between the rows  of crates.  3���������������������������Leave abundant space for bracing at centre of car, and see that  all braces are strongly secured to  prevent slewing of crates when cars  are shunted.  4���������������������������Never fill a car more than two-  thirds full, as the natural heat rises  and if there is any bad ,fruit in a car  it is sure to be at the top.  "As a result of the study given to  this question it would seem that  what is most necessary is a ca m-  paign of education along the lines of:  "Growing more fruit, both large  and small.  "Growing better fruit by means of  through cultivation, spraying, pruning, thinning and otherwise.  "Growing the varieties of fruit  wanted by the prairie markets.  "Better packing and grading, and  getting more meights into the packages.  "Care in loading of cars.  "Co-operation in the growing of  uniform varieties and prices between  the different districts, and as to  handling of and selling their fruit  products in the prairie provinces by some one of the methods previously mentioned.  "With due care given to these matters, and with thc hearty co-operation of the transfer companies, British Columbia fruit growers need have  no fear of either Eastern Canadian  or American competition in their natural market, the prairie provinces  of Alberta, Saskatchewan and Manitoba.'".  In submitting his report, Mr. Metcalfe includes a ..statement as to the  shipments of fruit received by Winnipeg commission houses alone, which  in 1908 amounted tp 131 carloads of  apples, and a tota','not counting the  citrus fruits, of 693 carloads.  CASSELS-PERCIVAL  ENTERTAINMENT  Seldom, if ever, has Enderby had  the privilege of seeing and enjoying a  company of artists of the same magnitude as the Cassels-Percival entertainers, who are to appear in K. of  P. hall next Monday evening. This  is the first of the Star, Course of en-  tainments which have been assurred  Enderby by Mr. A. Reeves who has  taken upon himself to handle the C.  P. Walker Lyceum Course, sent out  from the Walker Theatre, Winnipeg,  and consisting of a series of five entertainments, coming three weeks  apart.  "In presenting this Company,"  says Mr. Walker, "we feel that we  are ollering amusement lovers the  most versatile Concert Company ever  seen in the West. The company was  organized to meet tbe persistent demand for a thoroughly refined and  artistic entertainment which was a  pleasing change from the ordinary  formal program���������������������������artists of winning  personality giving a program of  readings, solos and ensemble selections as informally as if entertaining  their friends at home. No tiresome  waits between numbers, but a simple,  delightful evening of artistic entertainment." The organization is  headed by Miss Caroline Cassels, the  prima donna contralto, who has been  notably successful in church and oratorio work, having been soloist at  the Metropolitan, Erskine, and  Church of the Redeemer, Toronto;  First Presbyterian, Seattle; Central  Congregational Church, Winnipeg;  and American Presbyterian Church,  Montreal. Percival, the high-class  magician, adds especial interest to  the program.   He will keep an audi  ence spellbound during the entire  time hc is on the stage. To laugh  heartily is to be happy, and in witnessing Percival's entertainment one  is happy for one laughs heartily. To  hear a good violin well played is to  love it. Miss Fen wick, the violiniste  of the trio, is the proud possessor of  a beautiful violin of the Cremona  School, which was given her by the  Mayor and citizens of her birthplace.

WANTS CURFEW  Editor The Enderby Press:  Sir: Some time ago when I saw  thc matter mentioned in your paper  that Enderby needed a curfew by-law  I hoped to see the matter taken up  and further pressed before the City  Council. Either our city fathers are  blind to this need, or do not care.  If some action is not taken, there  will be some sorrowful Enderby  homes as a result of this apparent  neglect to control the street-running  of our boys and girls. The boys and  girls of Enderby are as good as the  boys and girls of other towns and  the results of street-gadding at night  will be as painful here as it has been  in other towns where. the same indifference has prevailed.
