McDonald were in Enderby Monday to attend the organization  meeting of the Liberal Association.  the concert given last Friday  evening by the Ladies Guild of  St. George's Church, was very  much enjoyed by an appreciative  audience.  Theodore Baxter, W. J. Rands  and Howard Mann are the latest  settlers to take up land in the  Mabel Lake valley, about six  miles from Enderby.  Hon. Price Ellison and Mr. De  Harte have both expressed their  ^readiness^to=give=-time-==on���������������������������the  platform at any of their meetings  to Local Option speakers.  The B.

These are the first, shows  at which the collection has been  exhibited.  The Enderby Liberal Association was organized Monday evening. Hon. President, Jno. Oliver; Pres., Geo. Bell; V.P., Robt.

Mr.  Campbell. After the ceremony  they and their guests retired to  the home of Mrs. Flewwelling,  where the wedding supper was  served. Mr. and Mrs. Scott have  taken up their residence in the  brick cottage on Russell street.  Walter McRaye, the favorite  entertainer, with Miss McGuire,  an English contralto of splendid  voice, and Mrs. McRaye, nee Miss  Lucy Webling, an artist of talent  will appear in K. of P. Hall, Friday evening, Nov. 19th. Mr.  McRaye writes: "You cannot  speak too highly of Miss McGuire," and the Vancouver World  says, "To Miss Eileen Maguire  fell the most enthusiastic reception of the evening, for there are  few artistes more popular in Vancouver." Mr. McRaye and Miss  Webling need" no introduction to  an Enderby audience.  Seldom, if ever,- have the people of- Enderby spent a more enjoyable evening than that of last  Monday, at the entertainment  provided by the Cassells-Percival  trio of artists. " Caroline Cassels,  the prima donna contralto, has a  voice of marvelous scope, and her  singing greatly pleased the audience. - Percival is well named the  Wizard. His tricks of conjury  mystified, baffled and pleased,  and there was ,not a quiet moment while he occupied the stage.  Miss Fenwick is an artist on the  violin, and fully sustained everything, good the critics have said  of her. The performance gave  entire satisfaction, and it is the  feeling of all who have expressed  themselves that-Mr. .Reeves is to  be congratulated on having been  instrumental in bringing to Enderby artists of such merit.

The Conservative party cannot afford to  Bleep, for the Liberal party is wide awake,  and would turn the heavens upside down  to win the Okanagan ��������������������������� seat if it would do  any good. But a Liberal victory here is  one of the impossible contingencies. "While  we recognize the splendid qualities of Mr.  DeHart, the Liberal nominee, we cannot  bring ourselves to believe that he has the  ghost of a chance of election. Even before  he was made Minister of the Lands and  Works Department, Hon. Price Ellison  was certain of re-election. Mr. Ellison is  a Conservative, but he is a great deal  more. He loves his party, but he loves his  people more. He is typically a British Columbian, and loyalty to the Okanagan has  ever been his slogan. No man has done-  more than he for the District, and few as  much, and the electors know full-well what  his presence at Victoria means to the constituency. Even Liberals concede his election, but feel that the party must make a  showing. There is something commendable in the party making the fight in the  face of certain defeat. But it will be difficult to work up any enthusiasm in" such a  fight, for there are few men, Liberal or  Conservative, who do not recognize in Hon.  Price Ellison a personal friend and public  servant worthy bf the best we can give him  and one whom we honor ourselves most in  returning to represent us at the seat of  government. It is bordering on the absurd to think of making a cnange in Provincial affairs in view of the splendid record1 the-McBride. government has made,  and it is worse than absurd to even ask the  electors of the Okanagan to turn down  such a friend of the District as Hon.

The city has done exceptionally good work this year in extending sidewalks and grading streets, and the  city looks a hundred percent better as a result of the work. Sidewalks have been extended far to the outskirts of the city, and  yet this toe-������������������ath, in.the heart of the business centre, is permitted to remain; and an  8-foot sidewalk on the' opposite side of the  street!

MARRIAGE I  I J  Mr. Robert Montagu walked slowly down tho quiet country road. Hc  was within a few miles of the great  metropolis, but in this peaceful  Hertfordshire villago lie felt a  thousand miles from thc hub of the  universe. And yet ho had but latc-  lj returned from a very distant  country���������������������������the western part of Canada���������������������������where things had prospered  exceedingly with him. Ho had, in  short, coiro home with his pile���������������������������a  rich man it least, and ha. returned to the old country for a well-  earned rest, with an idea at tho  back of his busy mind that it migh.  be very pleasant to settle down at  home���������������������������if he could find someone to  settle down with !  Ho looked about him with interest as ho made bis way down the  deserted road, which he remembered so well, many, many years ago;  and when he came in sight of a  square, ugly white house standing  ion a littlo eminence, approached  by a handsome carriage drive and  surrounded with prosperous-looking  outbuildings and a big garden, he  ,!a._en e<l hie pace a little.  So this was where Adela was  living. Things had gone well with  her and hor stockbroker husband  evidently. How would they receive  him'/ He glanced down at his  clothes, which though neat were by  no means new. His heart yearned  for a little affection ; he had lived  bo long without it. Adela had a  siring of children; perhaps some  of them might take him to their  hearts, though if they resembled  Adela, hie elder sister���������������������������well, she  had never oarcl much for him.  He had heard little or nothing of  her for tome years, and he smiled  as he thought of thc surprise he had  in store for her���������������������������the delightful  news that ho had actually made his  fortune; that he could giv her and  hers all the things their hearts desired.- He hugged that thought to  himself, but he would not tell her  just yet. And with that he rang  thc bell at khe big staring door, and  was presently ushered into a plea-  fortune; that he could give her and  maid took his name to her mistress.  He had to wait some time before  the door ilew op^n, and a stout,  good-looking woman, dressed with  much smart finerv, rustled in; and  in this florid, self-satisfied woman  east a sharp glance at her brother.  13' in recognizing his sister Adela  Henderson.  "Adela !"    he    said,    with    outstretched bands-  Mrs.  Henderson    pecked    at his  bronzed check rather nervously.  "Well, Robert!" sho said. "So  you've really _me back���������������������������like the  proverbial bad penny, I suppose.  "Why didn't you Jet us know?

But you can stay for a few-  days anyway. Have you brought  any luggage with you?"  "Only a bag. I left it in the  hall."  "Oh, all right. Come with mc  and I'll show you your room���������������������������it's  at the top, near tho school-room,  but you won't mind that. I daresay after Canada you'll find ifc quite  luxurious."  And with a laugh Mrs. Henderson rustled out of the room. Robert Montagu with an odd expression on his face followed her meekly  to a small, cold room afc thc top of  the hotfte, furnished like a {servant's  bedroom, and looking out into a  yard.  "We're a bit upset to-day. too,"  said Adela, as she looked round  with satisfaction, "for we're having  a- little dance to-night for Amy���������������������������and  a dinner-party first. Just a hop for  the young people- Have you ��������������������������� I  suppose you haven't brought a  |d_ ess-suit?"  1 "Well���������������������������I'have," said Montagu,  meekly ; "but of course if you would  rather I didn't appear. Adela "  Mrs. Henderson flushed a little  beneath the quiet look her brother  gave her.  "Don't be silly, Robert; it's not  that. Of course, you must appear.  Only if we're a bit crowded at dinner, you won't mind dining at a  side table, will you. I shall have  t'������������������ put one of the girls there anyway, and, as a matter.of fact, you'll  come in quite useful, as I was  afraid of sitting down thirteen.  And I didn't want to ask the governess to join us. Those sort of peo-  plo presume so - much on. one's  kindness sometimes; and Miss Ver-  ney considers herself pretty ��������������������������� and  well born���������������������������though I can't see it."  And Mrs. Henderson rustled out  of the little room, leaving Robert  Montagu to take possession of his  new quarters, which he was to consider so luxurious after���������������������������Canada!  He would just wait his time. The  children might make up to him for  their mother's deficiencies.  beauty. If only you'd be a bit kind  to me I'd change all that for you.  Woa't you?

If  you do not immediately leave the  schoolroom I shall summon assistance-"  Tho man colored darkly, and before Margaret was quite aware of  his intention he had seized her in  his arms.  "No! -By Jove! I'll not go till  V'vc taken what I want!" hc said,  with a laugh.  "You'll keep your distance, you  young cur," said a quiet voice, and  a strong hand flung him aside with  astounding ease, while , Margaret  Vcrncy drew a long breath of relief.  "He didn't hurt you?" asked  Montagu, turning to her.  "No; thank you so much. I���������������������������  I "  "And you'd better clear out,"  said Montagu, wheeling round and  fa-cing the infuriated young man,  "unless vou wish to be���������������������������horsewhip--  ped.   Get out!"  "And leave the field clear for  you, eh? Well, I wish Miss Verney  joy of the returned prodigal���������������������������th������������������  beggar man from Canada," muttered Henderson, maliciously; but  he went out of the room all the  same.  "1. ->es he annoy you often?" asked Montagu, sharply. "Because if  so I will lodge a complaint5 with  my  Mr  me,  Mr.  ifc.  "I may come and  see you?"  asked.    She colored a little.  "Yes���������������������������if you wish," she said,  with a momentary hesitation. And  then he went away to his solicitor's  offices, where he was received with  all thc respect and deference due to  a millionaire.  "I particularly wish you to make  inquires for mo about an estate in  Yorkshire at present in the market, called Hallenby Hall," he  said, concisely. "It is situated  near thc sea coast, and is a property I wish to secure."  "Certainly, Mr. Montagu."  Hc was very busy for some weeks  after that, but he managed to see  a good deal of Margaret Verney.  And all the time his plans were maturing, and the property on which  Miss Verney's early youth had been  spent^the home she loved so well-  passed secretly and quietly into the  hands of the latest millionaire.  And then, when everything was  quite  ready,    he  f.  'Well, it is not the first time  Henderson has tried.to annoy  " she confessed ; "but���������������������������please,  Montagu, don't trouble about  He will be leaving in a few  days, and then���������������������������ifc will be all  right."  "And  you don't    join ,! the  rest  downstairs?" he asked suddenly, af-  Thc  gay  strains    of the  -*  newest  "How many years is it since we  met, Adela!" he asked, quietly,  with a queer sort jf sinking feeling  at his heart.  "Well���������������������������J. suppose it must be near  twenty," he said. "Amy is twenty-  one���������������������������-engaged to be married, too���������������������������  und she was nearly two years old  when you left. And how have things  gone with you?

Of course, one has lo work hard���������������������������  'lis i.s a bad time in Canada."  that's what has brought you  waltz floated up to thc top storey  of tho Henderson abode and penetrated to thc schoolroom, where, in  rather a dismal light and beside a  very poor fire, Margaret Verney  was trying to concentrate her attention on a book which lay on her  lap. Btifc ifc was not easy to read  with that seductive music filling the  air. and almost unconsciously her  foot beat time softly to thc delightful rhythm which she loved so well.  If only she could have joined the  dancers! A smile touched Margaret Vcmcy's pretty lips as she  thought of the past���������������������������not so very  far from her���������������������������when she had danced  and done all the things girls love,  and had not known a care or any  anxiety. Well, lhat was all changed now. She had to fight her own  way in the world.

He's a good match for  our Amy and���������������������������but you can stop a  bit if you don't mind a small room.  What do you mean to do?"  "Oh, "just look about me," said  Montagu, vaguely, and a silence  fell between brother and sister for  .   few moment!.  So this wa.s Ihe welcome and iie  had dreamt of something so different.

He  must be. kept in the background as  much as possible."  And the sharp words had reached  the-uncle's cars; Margaret Verney  had caught sight of liim at that moment, aixl she knew the bitter  speech had slung him. A great pity  and sense of comradeship seized her  at lhat moment, and (he smile with  which bhc mad looked at him was  perhaps the only welcome hc had  /eceived.  The lire blazed up with a pleasant burst of Humes, and Margaret  Verney���������������������������lost in her own dreams,  gazing into the heart of the fire-  did not bear the door open quietly,  and she started violently when a  hand touched her softly on thc  shoulder and a voice said, wilh a  familiar accent:���������������������������  "Moping all alone, Miss Verney';  That's too bad. You ought to be  dancing wilh the rest."  The girl got up with.a little shudder of dislike as her eyes fell ou  the tall, good-looking young man  wlio. had stolen in upon her, She  cordially disliked her employer's  nephew, who had chosen on more  than one occasion to pester her win  his unwelcome and insolent attentions, but young Henderson was  quite impervious to snubs.  "I have niy work lo do," she  said, quietly; "and in any case I  should be too tired to dance."  The young man-laughed as his  eyes rested with bold admiration  on the girl's flushed face.  "Nonsense!" he said, coming a  slop nearer. "You know quite well  tliat you're mewed up hero becauso  my fond aunt, and the girls ar. ,-,s  jealous a.s cats   of you    and your  We all.have dreams," he  , some . of us realize them���������������������������  some don't.

That is why  T am here, and 1 long so for thc  wild moorland of my native Yorkshire and the free country life."  "I see. And I can understand.  Where was" your home exactly?  You and I should be friends, Miss  Verney, for we are both rather in  the same boat. Nobody seems to  want me much."  That was the pleasantcst evening  Margaret Vcrncy had known since  her coming into the Henderson  household, and a friendship sprang  up in that short hour between her  and the beggar-man uncle���������������������������as the  children called the newly-returned  relative���������������������������which time would only  cement. And to Montagu himself  some new and altogether delightful thing had come into his life during that short hour.  _,___..., ^ a ^ ;| ���������������������������  "Miss Verney?" said Mrs. Henderson with an air of great languor. "Oh, she is leaving this afternoon. She has become quite insupportable. She was positively insolent to Ralph 1 hear, also to myself."  "'If lo repel the impertinent attentions of that objectionable young  nippy is insolence," said-Montagu,  asked Margaret  Verney to be his wife.  "You don't know much about  me, perhaps," he said, ruefully,  "but I can promise you a happy  life, sheltered and cared for. I  iove you dearly���������������������������I will be good to  you always���������������������������if you can only care  a little, when I care so much.  Would you be content to marry a  poor man, Margaret?"  ['II I loved hizn I would," she  said, very low.  "And can you care just a little?" ho said, eagerly.  "Oh, I care so much," she whispered.   The rest was silence.  They were married very quietly  a few weeks after. And later in the  day tho newly-married couple set  off on their journey to Yorkshire-  - "We will visit the vicinity of your  old home," . Montagu said to his  wife, and it was with a strangely-  fluttering heart that in the warm,  summer evening the girl found herself alighting at the familiar littlo  station. ;-.  A handsome motor with a couple  cf men in dark livery stood in the  station yard, and Margaret, to her  amazement, found herself being  hurried into ifc, while her modest  luggage was put into a luggage-  cart, in charge of a smart groom.  "But where are we going?" she  asked in amazement, as the car  glided swiftly away to where Hal  lenby Hall reared its grey mass  from out of a sheltering plantation  facing the limitless sea.  "Wc arc going home," said Montagu, tenderly. "Are you glad,'  my own?"  "But I don't understand," she  said, faintly.   "I���������������������������thought you were  a poor man, and "  "Well, my sister and her farm.y  made the same mistake," said  Montagu, quietly. "You see, they  took it all for granted���������������������������and so did  you. I had my own reasons for  nofc wishing to undeceive them for  tho present, and���������������������������here we are afc  home. Margaret."  And that was how Margaret Montagu came back to bey old home.  As Mrs. Montagu was standing  looking out at thc dear, well-remembered view from her own windows, her eyes filled with happy  tears, Robert came in and crossing  the-room_ stood-.beside... .he__for_a.  silence.  he i Miss   Margaret     Verney,    ee oo_<f  daughter of the late Colonel Verney, and niece of the late Counter*  of Bedminster.

His Chief Fault is That of Carry-  ing Tales.  The pupils in schools in India  are much more amenable to discipline than our boys. Dr. T. L. Pen-.  nell, the author of "Among the  Wild Tribes of tho Afghan Frontier," says that the Indian schoolboy has not yet lost the ancient traditional respect and love of the pupil for the master, and therefore  wins the sympathy and interest of  his instructors.  His chief failing in- his incorrigible propensity to what is known  in English schools as '-'sneaking";  schoolboy honor and esprit de corps,  are being developed in mission  schools, but have very littlo basis  <-n which to build.  "Please, sir, Mali tab Din ha������������������  been, pinching me," ���������������������������  "Shuja'at 'Ali has ' stolen my  book."  "Ram Chand has spilt ink.on ray  copy-book."  If the master is willing to listen  to tales of this kind, he will get a  continuous supply "of them all day  long. .  There is much greater diversity  in the school status of thc boys in  an Indian school than in English  schools. In thc Bannu Mission  School every class of the community  is represented, from thc son of the  rich landowner to that of the laborer, from thc Brahman to the outcast, and not only do they get on  veil together without the poor boy  having to feci by taunt or treatment that he is unwelcome or de-  spiseo  :.,  but I    have    often    come  u_ro!s"gemrin_^act's=of"charifcy=whichi  have been done quite naturally and  without any ostentation ; in fact,  such deeds arc kept secret in the  majority of oases.

Paton, headmaster of Manchester Grammar School, in a  speech at Rochdale, referred to a  custom at Rugby School which forbids a boy of. less than three years  standing to turn up his trousers  and insists on his doing so after  that period, says the London Daily  Mail..    .  Thc custom is only a minor instance of the quaint practices that  exist at all'the great public schools,  and arc maintained with religious  care, though in many cases their  origin is obscure or unknown. The  Shrove Tuesday tossing of thc pancake at Westminster School, with  its ensuing'scramble for the largest fragment, which gains for its  possessor a guinea from the dean,  ;s perhaps thc best known among  them.  A curious custom at Marlborough  requires every boy to bring to  school with him a cushion, technically termed  a    "kish"���������������������������with the  FORTUNES IN"CORNERS"  MILLIONS WON AND LOST IN A  SINGLE DAY.  A Great Many Americans arc Never  Happy Unless They arc  Gambling.  "Corner" is merely another name  for a trust or monopoly. Ono man,  a firm, or a syndicate of firms arrange their speculations with a view  to controlling thc whole of a certain commodity, such as meat,  wheat, or cotton, for instance- If  they succeed in obtaining this monopoly; then they can create a  scarcity whicli causes the prices to  rise, and enables them to ultimately sell out- afc huge profits.  It is- by this means that' Mr. J.  A.'Patten, the celebrated Chicago  financier, made profit at tho rate of  $500,000 a day recently, through  "cornering" many million bushels  of wheat. The consequence was  that the. "man in thc street" had  to pay more for-his bread, although  Mr. Fatten maintains that ifc- was  the shortage of the crop and unfciv-  orable weather conditions which  made the p'riccs of flour and wheat  .0 up, and that ho was -simply  shrewd enough to take advantage  of that circumstance.  PITTSBURG BREAD KINGS.  And while Mr. Patten has been  busy in the Chicago wheat "pit,"  Messrs. Ward- and Evans, the  bread kings of Pittsburg, have been  ���������������������������inaugurating a new company, capitalized at $8,000,000, which will probably "corner" the bakery trade.  This new company is said to have  acquired large wheat areas in thc  West, and will be able to.obtain its  supplies without the intervention  -orth"c"-niiddlemanT==-In=facly-t-hc-ncw-  combination from tho wheat-fields  k- the bake-house, will make a  strong fight to control thc whole  Eastern market.  Whether they will succeed or not  is another matter, for these attempts at "cornering" arc often attended ��������������������������� with disastrous results.  Readers may remember how Mr.  Joseph.Lcitcr cndcavorccj. tp establish a whoat "corner" ten years  ago, miscalculated, and on account  of the slump in prices found himself  with 35,000,000 bushels of wheat on  hand, and lost $1,500,000 in a few  hours-  LOSSES AND GAINS.  It is true that Mr. E. P. Hutchinson, familiarly known as "Old  Hutch," got complete control of tho  wheat market in 1888; and, by buying at 75 cents a bushel and selling  afc $2.50, made an enormous fortune; but when, two years later,  those very shrewd men, Mr. Mac-  kay and Mr. Flood, cornered 9,-  000,000 bushels, they were glad to  escape with a loss of $2,500,000. In  the 'seventies Messrs. Lyon and Co.  dropped $10,00,000 over their "corner" in wheat; while in 1S8Y Edward Harper, in a wheat deal on  the Chicago Exchange, lost $3,500,-  000.  An American syndicate some time  ago created a "corner" in biscuits  --capital $55,000,000! Between Salt  Lake City on the west, Portland on  thc cast, St. Paul on thc north, and  New Orleans on the south���������������������������an area  or several thousand square miles-  no person was able to eat a biscuit without paying tribute lo this  commercial octupus-  COTTON "CORN KltR."

This was the first of several cotton  "corners" attempted in Liverpool  during the 'eighties, all of which  proved unsuccessful.  About- the time that Mr. Leiter  tried to "corner" tho world's wheat  supply, a gigantic milk trust, with  _ capital of $12,000,000, furnished  chiefly by British speculators, was  projected in New York City, whilo  about the same time a British-American Corporation obtained practical control of tho fisheries of the  great Canadian lakes, thanks to a  trust with a capital of $5,000,000.  The countless millions of fish disporting in the waters of these mighty lakes can only do so by permission of thi'so monopolists.  CURIOUS "CORNERS."  The modern history of steel and  oil, of course, provides some of the  most striking examples of the power of trusts and combines, and such  men as Mr. Rockefeller and - Mr.  Andrew Carnegie owe their millions practically to the "cornering"  of thc markets.  Thero are some amusing features  in the history of "corners," and  some curious commercial enterprises have been suggested of late  years. It is only_ two years ago  that a group of INew York .financiers thought' out a scheme for  "cornering" the output of the  world's Bibles. They arranged that  all the great printing and distributing houses should combine, thus  reducing the cos*- of production, administration, and distribution.to a  minimum. An all-round increase of  40 per cent, in prices was to be introduced, an enormous profits were  estimated. But people in England  refused"to have anything to do with  the idea, and thus an amazing American scheme was brought to "an  end���������������������������at least, so far as- international business was concerned.-  PARROT AND MONKEY TRUST  It was reported in.1906 "that the  waters of the Jordan had been  "cornered," a certain American  colonel having obtained" from the  Turkish Government the exclusive  concession to eypdrt thc water of  this- famous river- Indeed, there  seems no limit to "cornering" propensities of the- American financier ; and, amazing though it may seem  a combine was actually formed-two  or three years ago, with a capital  of $500,000,'' "to" "corner" monkeys,'  parrots, and all cage pets.

Facts About Beards���������������������������A Necessity in  Biblical Times.  - Whether- you- -wear -a - beard -o'r-  not, you will be interested in following tho rather curious facts  about the hirsute adornment- In  Biblical times thc beard was a necessity, as its absence was considered a sign of leprosy. Because  Philip V. of Spain was unable to  giow a beard the gentlemen of his  court crucified their own in order  to save their sovereign embarrassment. When Cicero was exiled tho  young men of Rome let their beards  grow as a sign of mourning. An  attempt was made to place a tax  on beards by Henry VIII. and  Queen Elizabeth of England, but  public sentiment was so strongly  against it that the attempt was  dropped.

NOVEMBER 11, 1909  When you can  build a home to  Suit Yourself  AN HONEST TALK  Can thc retail country merchant  meet the catalogue house ?  Yes, he can, and BEAT it, but it  means a campaign of education.  A catalogue house is not the same  thing as another store in the same  town. The other store comes in on  the same floor as he does, their customers come from the same ground;  they buy from the same people, at  the same prices, and- it costs them  about the same to do business  system, never forgets ���������������������������him,,', never  leaves him alone until he either becomes a customer or expresses his determination not to do so. How  many retail merchants put the same  energy into securing, business ?  The great, big, ace-high reason why  thc country customer patronizes the  catalogue house is that the goods are  cheaper, or he thinks they are, But  are they ? As a rule, NO. There  may be, probably will be, a few  special lines as leaders marked at a  price at which nobody could sell  without loss. They arc just a bait;  but it takes an expert in values to  detect them in a catalogue, either  from the cut or the description, for  the good points are so emphasized  and the weak ones-so carefully forgotten or disguised, that a prospective customer says to himself, or herself, most likely, "that's a snap,"  and  sends  for  it,    and  then,  if the  .... .

Anor Matthews  Cliff Street Enderby  not merely a question of competition,  it,is the KIND of competition that  counts.  The great difference between the  catalogue house and the country  store is in the matter of buying.  The catalogue ��������������������������� houses, on account  of the quantities they buy, can buy  at jobber's prices. This means that  the catalogue house makes the same  profit as the jobber and some of what  ���������������������������the ordinary retailer makes too. It  puts the catalogue house In a position to sell at prices which the retailer cannot possibly meet without  loss  Now everybody knows that a manufacturer, if and-when he deals with  a retailer, protects the jobber's price.  It is therefore up to the jobber  and  manufacturer to protect thc retailer.  Why ?   Because the vast majority of  business     in    the    country    is    done  through the small retailer.   If either  the jobber or   the    manufacturer, relied    upon the    catalogue houses for  his bus ness he would have to quit.  The country  merchant is  indispensi-  ble;  both  the   jobber    and manufacturer   know   it,    and know   that   he  must be protected on the prices of all  staple articles and they do it.    They  know  that  a    man is not going  to  wait a week or ten days for a sack  of sugar, however badly he wants to  save ten cents.   When people want a  thing they want it at once, not in a  week or ten days.   The jobber knows  that when a   thing   is wanted it is  wanted at    once,   and  he is not so  foolish as to make it worth while for  anybody to    wait   for    "one"from a  catalogue   house    when    he    can sell  "ten'   through retailers.  As was said at thc commencement  it is a matter of education, aggression, fight-call it what you will, but  it comes to this, that where a merchant , is wide-awake,- keeps his stock  up, keeps the same goods or a satisfactory substitute for the goods of a  catalogue .house, he can put them out  of business in his section.  The   catalogue   houses    send   then-  descriptive matter,' catalogues, circulars to practically everybody in the  country      The   local    merchant   can  profitably follow their example      He  cannot, ��������������������������� of   course,    afford   to issue  such a   large    catalogue, he has not  probably  got all thc  goods  anyway  and it is no   use    advertising goods  you cannot deliver.   Cut he can send  descriptive   matter,    and follow  this  up with personal letters when he gets  enquiries  or requests for quotations  or even when somebody gives signs of  being interested.  The main reason why the catalogue  houses are as successful as they are  -and one cannot deny that most of  them are-is that they follow, follow  and everlastingly follow up anybody  who does ���������������������������not_tell-th_m-in-sn-mar.y-  words that he has no use for them  Icrsistance of this kind will inevitably turn a waverer into a customer  some time, and the men at the head  oi these institutions knew it, but  what is there to prevent thc small  retailer using thc same medicine ?  But, let us ask, why does a country  buyer, why does anybody, go to a  catalogue house ? Well, first because hc is asked, not once', not  twice,, but-persistently; they are forever after him for his business. Thc  house,  with    its   perfected   follow-up  weight is made up with articles on  which the catalogue house makes a  profit more than sufficient to cover  the loss on the "snap." Again, the  catalogue house insists on cash in  advance for everything, a great advantage, if only because it eliminates  all possibility---of bad debts, which is  in itself an item of profit.  This cash consideration means- that  money is actually sent away by farmers,   mechanics    and    others    from"  their own section of the country to  circulate to the advantage of another  community, and to the detriment of  Ihe  section  from    which  it is  withdrawn.   It is so obviously unfair to  send the cash out of town and expect  the home    merchant    to    do   all the  credit  business that it is  a  wonder  more people do not recognize it and  attempt to remedy it.  , The same    man   who,    in times of  prosperity sends the bulk of his money to the catalogue houses, is usually one of the first in times of depression to ask the    local merchant for  extended credit, in many instances to  I carry   him    over   a   period    of    six  months or longer, and he does it in  the most brazen manner, even regarding a refusal as a positive insult.  To this class of buyer, we say without fear of contradiction, that if he  would take his favorite catalogue,  and go over it with his local merchant, he would be surprised to see  how often he can, after calculating  and adding ^freight charges, buy at  home and actually SAVE MONEY.  There are other obvious disadvantages    in    buying   away    from home,  such as    the    necessary    time which  must elapse before the goods are delivered,- the   "difficulty    and delay of  exchanging unsatisfactory goods, the  goods   not    being   up   to   standard  or as    the   buyer   expected,    clothes  which   do   not  fit,   and   many  others  will occur to    anyone  who  makes a  practice    of     buying    from    distant  houses, but it is unnecessary to enu-  imeratc    them;    the    merchant knows  them and should    take every opportunity of  drawing    the attention  of  those    of   his    customers   whom   he  knows are afflicted by thc catalogue  hanit, .or it is a habit, to them, and  using them as levers in his argument  for a square deal.  There is no reason why the home  mcrcnant should not, in fact, there  is every reason why he should, use  the same methods of selling as do  the catalogue houses. First he must  advertise, next he must follow up  prospective customers. He must hang  out a bait, run leading lines and  keep changing them, relying on his  own personality, and the efficiency of  his sales force to reimburse him for  any loss on the "leaders."  Let the local merchant take the  .catalogue-issued���������������������������by^aiiy^largcrSSir  order house, and study the prices  with a view to bringing his own into  line with them; let him .convince himself that it can be done, and he can  then convince the public.  Let the public understand that he  not only claims to compete, but that  he is waiting for the opportunity  to prove it, and first one and then  another will give him thc opportunity, after which, if he makes good,  the" news will "soon" travel," even be-"  yond the bounds of his own little  town.  or for any kind of rough usage  ���������������������������hunting, mountain climbing,  long tramps, etc., come in and  see how quickly we can fit you  out.

The Bnderby Press is absolutely in  earnest in this .ratter of buying of  our home merchants, and the products of our home industries, for in  so doing .we are building up our town  and making it a more attractive city  to live in and induce others to come  to. Every dollar spent at home goes  toward enriching Bnderby, and every  dollar sent to the catalogue houses  goes toward making Enderby the  poorer. -What-enriches Enderby, enriches every citizen of Enderby, and  what makes Enderby poorer, makes  every citizen of Enderby poorer, Let  us be honest with ourselves.

Two of the cups in particular, that given by the En"  derby Trading Company and the Challenge Cup given by Mr. and Mrs. Robt"  Waddell, are worthy of the highest tribute. The former will be a $25.00 cup,  and the Challenge Cup and medals, will run into twice that amount.

THE TERRITORIAL ARMY  ENGLAND'S   CITIZEN   TROOPS  IN CAMP.  The Conditions Were Made to Resemble Those on Active  Scrricc.  A goodly portion of old London  fcaoved out to Salisbury Plain for  iho first two weeks of August,  .when the Metropolitan Territorials  .went'into camp. Thirty thousand  toon in uniform tented and manoeuvred on the plain. Not since the  South African war has London seen  no many men in khaki.   Getting the  . men and horses and equipment out  to the camp was a huge business,,  and tho work fell heavily on the  Great Western and South Western  Railroads, which had at the same  timo to handl������������������t.the usual Bank Holiday excursion crowds. The start  was made on Saturday afternoon  and as ovening advanced Waterloo  fetation becomo a picture of warlike  preparations.  Regiment after regiment came  along, all in khaki and carrying  their field kits. The entrances in  Westminster Bridge road to the new  platforms - wero reserved for the  troops, and many corps made that  tho place of assembly, tho men falling in smartly and entraining with  . great speed a.s soon as the empty  .vehicles drew up to tho platforms.  GEE AT PLAIN TOO SMALL.  So great has been the growth of  tho Territorials that tho spacious  Salisbury " Plain seoms to have  grown small and camped. Fivo  thousand acres will be added to it  as soon as the War Department can  obtain possession of tho land. The  .work began on Monday, and, mostly for the sake of tho newly-joined  men, company and battalion drill  occupied all of tho first week. The  r'manoeuvring ground on tho downs  was divided into practice areas upon which the units could carry out  their exercises separately. For  the senior men thero were more  ambitious exercises. Small mobile  columns wero formed, with guns  and cavalry, and these marched,  each column carrying its own tents,  stores and equipment and bivouacked at an appointed distant spot.  .An ��������������������������� expeditionary force waa sent  out for a two-days' march and eventually had to fight its way back to  camp.  MOBILE COLUMNS.  The first of these mobile columns  .was sent out on Thursday night, after the mon had become somewhat  .used to camp life and a littlo hardened to thc work. An interesting  littlo campaign had been worked  out by General Vcsey Dawson, commanding one of tlio divisions, and  ���������������������������Major Ruthven, his ^hief of staff.  The situation had been imagined of  a victorious invading army marching upon Winchester. They had  scattered the defending army into  email parties, capable only of car--  =irfrffg"_Ti=gu e i _1 hi. w ar f-a-r07=^T-h r o u g-h=  the country in whi'-h the guerillas  wero operating a reinforcing column was to march towards Winches, ter, their care being to get  through as quickly as possible without being impede, by tho small but  desperate bodies possibly lurking  in tho way. The reinforcing column  sent out consisted of the Fifth London Infantry Brigade, .comprising  the London 1 rish and the battalions  from Poplar, St. Pancraa . and  Bl. r'k!j. nth, with thrco batteries of  th-..;.lh London Artillery .Brigade, iho Eighth London Howit-  zor Battery and tho Field Ambulance and A iiny Scrvico Corps of  tho Fifth Division���������������������������a handy litl.V  column. Their arrival wa3 of great  Importance to the besiegers. Each  mon carried a  days' rations oniv  and one or more units wero sent  out every night or so. When darkness settled down over the plain,  the men marched off clad in overcoats. This marching to the compass had to be carried out as noiselessly as possible, with no talking or smoking, for the enemy, it  was assumed, were ever on the  alert. When the outpost line had  been taken.up, a surprise attack  followed to test the vigilance of  the defenders, and the operations  were made to resemble as nearly  as possible those on active service.  SHAM FIGHT WITH REGULARS  While the London "Terriers," as  they have been nicknamed, went  through their elementary drill on  the western side of the plain, the  Wesscx Territorials, some 20,000  strong, wero completing their manoeuvres on the eastern side. As a  grand finale, a sham battle was arranged between the regulars in  quarters at Bulford on one side and  the Wessex division, together with  the boys from the public schools,  on the other. The scheme outlined  supposed a small force holding  Silk Hill to cover tho operations  of tho army from which it had been  detached on the other side of the  "Avon. This forco was wholly com-,,-  posed of regulars under tbe command of Brigadier-General Drummond. To the opposing army it.  was of great importance to capture  the Silk Hill position, and for this  purpose reinforcements which had  arrived were sent forward. This  body the Wessex Territorials and  the public school hoys represented  under the command of Major-General Blomfield.  Tho result was that the battle  culminated in a final charge up the  bill on the part of the attackers,  ADVERTISING FOR WIVES  PECULIAR REQUIREMENTS OF  WOULD-BE BENEDICTS.

It was an exciting finalo to the  battle,  as it looked as if the attackers and defenders were bound  to clash, and the officers saved the  situation in the nick of time.  OTHER BRIGADES IN CAMP  Salisbury Plain, though it   had  50,000 men on it, was not the only  armed camp in Britain at the time.  A largo number'of Provincial brigades of-   artillery    and    infantry  went into camp at   other places.  Twelve   battalions    pitched    their  tonts in the Now Forest, the Warwick Brigade at Sway, tho Gloucester and Worcester at   Lyndhurst,  and the South  Midland at Beau-  lieu.    The Middlesex  and  Surrey  Brigades - mustered    at    Arundel,'  while at Dover there  .were three  camps: the Royal Engineers from  Kent and Sussex, the Kent Cyclists'  Battalion, and tho Sussex and Kent  Royal Garrison Artillery.

Before they had left camp General Vescy Dawson inspected them  and wished them good luck. Colonel Nugent, the brigadier of the  brigade, led them away. They  marched out eastwards upon the  plain to Nethcravon at ono of the  crossings of the much-troubled  Avon, and there, having crossed the  river and cooked their dinner from  supplies carried with thorn they  wrapped them .elves up in their  blankets with their rides ready to  their hands.

A study of matrimonial advertisements will reveal some queer  '''wants" in the shape of both husbands and wives. This is from a  Bengal journal: "Wanted for marriage, a fair girl Hindu, kayastha,  for a graduate student. Very respectable heiress apparent preferred. Address sharp, confidentially," etc.  The word "kayastha" refers to  caste; but the idea of a "fair Hindu" who is an "heiress apparent"  is distinctly amusing to British  ideas.  ...The following requisition appeared in a paper hailing from tho West  of England: "Wanted immediately, with view to matrimony, handsome, sporting young man. hard  rider, but not drinker; must own  hunters." -  If this advertisement is not a  joke, it must have been written by  a lady who knew her own mind  pretty thoroughly. It is seldom  that you find so many requisitions  succinctly set forth in three lines.  ABLE TO COOK AND WASH.  They are practical folk in Australia. Listen to this from a New  South Wales journal:'"Wanted a  wife; must "be able to cook and  wash. Lady preferred." This  man, at any rate, was honest, and  ric doubt many girls would much  sooner trust themselves;, to an advertiser of this kind than to one  who angled for looks or money.  Japanese matrimonial advertisements are the very antithesis of the  hard practicality of the Anglo-  Saxon announcements. The 'Kana-  waza Shimbwc,' a Japanese papes.  had an advertisement from a lady  who, after describing her own pergonal charms and fortune in flow-  ery language, ended, "If there is  a gentleman who is clever, learned,  handsome, and of good taste. I will  join with him for life, and share'the  pleasure of being buried in the  same grave."  LITTLE BUT  GOOD.

PREDICTING THE WEATHER.  Done  Frenchman Says It   Can hc  Months Ahead.  Edmond Terisserent de Bort, the  distinguished meteorologist, believes that real progress has at last  becninade ih the direction of determining in advance tho general  character of thc seasons. Wide and  continued observations of the behavior of tho atmospheric movements  of ocean currents, seem to him to  establish already certain general  laws and to furnish thc hope that  we should soon be able to predict  the weather for months ahead. He  says :  "For thirty years I have been  studying the movements and .centres of high and low pressure." I  observe certain interesting and suggestive phenomena. For instance,  in tho summer, when the oceanic  high pressures, whoso centre is-in  the neighborhood of the Azores, remain south of England und west of  Europe, wo enjoy normal weather  and clear skies. If, on the contrary, tho high pressures arc driven back toward "the south, they  leave the field clear for atmospheric  vortices with low pressure, which  ordinarily remain in the latitude of  Iceland and west winds with gentle  rain predominate, in Western "Europe. If high pressures reascend  north without" expanding over Europe, wo have cold winds, rain and  hail, and in the winter equally interesting facts are observed.  "Now it is the differences of temperature in marine currents, like  the Gulf Stream, that influence the  behavior of atmospheric depression.  Prof. Hildcbrandsson, the Swedish  savant, has given himself for some  years to the study of the relations  of high and low pressure areas and  marine currents. From one of a  series of very suggestive curves that  lie has drawn tho curious fact is  made, clear that the temperature  at Nort Cape in summer is the opposite of that of Iceland.the next  springtime. The spring of a northern port in North America is of the  same character as the weather in  Iceland in the March of thc year  preceding. Likewise, one is able to  deduce from the observations in  Iceland what will be thc character  of the seasons in Newfoundland six  months later.  "The behavior of atmospheric  pressure at' North Cape in springtime is.regularly tho opposite of  that of the corresponding season  reported from Debrcczin, in Hungary."  He has great hopes that results  will attend thc 'establishment at  Monaco by the conferences last  May of an organization for co-operative meteorological reports from  all parts of the world, from Spitsbergen to tho South Pacific islets.

His chief anxiety seems to have  been that his bride-to-be should not  ho too-tall. "If .you would, bo.kind  enough," he wrote, "to supply mc  with her name and height of body  ���������������������������I mean she should not bo taller  than five feet or, so���������������������������and with age  and respectability, I would, provide  her with a very new, comfortable  home."  Tho opinion of an Irish tramp upon tho ideal wife is distinctly amusing. She should be, he says, "between forty and fifty years of age,  not handsome but temperate. She  should bo able to walk twenty  miles a day, and bo good at begging bottles and potatoes, and also at ballad singing. She should  not be quarrelsome, but able to  fight a round or two, to defend her  husband when in action."  WILLING FOR A FOURTH.  One is driven to wonder whether  thero were any repliesto this curious advertisement, which appeared  it. a London daily paper : "Wanted,  a respectable gentleman���������������������������widower  preferred���������������������������to marry the housekeeper of an aged gntlcman, whom  he would like to_ see happily married before hc dies. She has had  three husbands, but is willing for  a fourth." If anyone did volunteer  to make "number four," ho was  certainly braver than the average  man.  The following, which is taken  from the column?, of a. New York  paper, appears to form an appropriate conclusion to an article of  this kind :������������������������������������������������������  "A young man of agreoablo prcs-  FTSH FROM THE CLOUDS.  Picked Up   on   Hill, ide���������������������������Instances  From India.  Recently a number of townspeople taking a walk on thc stones of  Knockscalhcrt Hill were surprised  to sec on the grass near Summer-  bill a large numbcrof very small  fishes, varying in length from 1]/,  to 2 inches, says the Campbelltown  Courier. The fish appeared to be  the young of the herring, and their  presence on the hill in considerable  numbers created much speculation.  In August, 1904,; a shower of herring fry was experienced at the  head of Longrow, but there was no  doubt as to whence the miniature  fish had come, for they fell from  above on the hats and clothing of  several men, and at the time a small  black cloud of remarkable density  was directly overhead.  The phenomenon of fish from the  clouds is,! says our contemporary,  of more common occurrence than is  generally supposed. It is undoubtedly due to some small fry of fishes  having been lifted from the water  and carried over dry land by what  is popularly known as a waterspout.  Many cases are reported from  abroad, and they are common in  India. Last year Caithness reported a shower of small fishes, which  were identified as herring fry, and  there wa.s also a similar occurrence  in Rossshirc.  Frogs, insects and other living  creatures have also been known to  be thus transported through tho  air.  POOR FELLOW I  Once in a while a man is too  proud to beg and too honest to  steal���������������������������then the only alternative he  lias left is to go to work.  But there is now a young woman  in New York city who embraces a.~  very extensive   scope   of   finance.  She is not only a rarity in that respect, but in the respect of being  the chief of a    financial    library.  Thc term "financial librarian" inevitably conjures up a bloodless be-'  ing, shrivelled in body; a yellow and  terribly wiinkLed face; white, uii--  kempt hair; quito deaf; a.  harsh  voice; a man neither of manners  hor of conversation.

Bouquets, said a fashionable florist recently to the correspondent of  a London, England, paper, can be  had at" any price you like, and  we've supplied them from $120 to  .2,500. Of course the last figure  vould not be in the cost of the  flowers, but in the magnificent  holders and tho "concealed treasures" which many a bouquet contains. A few days ago I received  an order for a ten-guinea bouquet  and a note to the effect that the  writer would call later with some  littlo trinkets which were to be  "concealed" among the blossoms.  CONCEALED JEWELS.  We "got up the bouquet all right,  and just when it was finished a gentleman arrived and, after admiring the beauty of th������������������ nosegay, unburdened himself cf a number of  ���������������������������mall packets which, on being open.  ������������������d, revealed some magnificent  specimens of jewellery. There were  rings, bracelets, collars, etc.���������������������������all  rery beautiful and costly. All these  wo "concealed" among the flowers,  fastening them to the. blossoms by  invisible wire When completed,  the bouquet showed no trace of the  i'ewellery it contained, and certain-  y did* not look worth the $3,000  which was th������������������ value the purchaser  placed upon it. There was no par  ticular romance attached to the  present, as it was merely intended  for thc man's wife in celebration of  the fifth anniversary of their wed-  d?ng.  ACTRESSES "WISE."  Most bouquets intended for popular actresses and singers now contain some "surprise" in,the form of  a piece of jewellery, and. "professionals" have become "wise" tothe  fact and take the precaution of examining well any presentation bouquet before placing it in a vase.  We made a very beautiful bouquet'  ������������������f orchids the other, day for a prima  .donna who is well known at Covent .Garden and one which, I have  . no doubt', gave-ther considerable  .pleasure. There was no concealed  jewels, but the holder was made of  solid gold and encrusted with gems.  This holder was fashioned in such  a way that it could be utilized as  a parasol or umbrella handle, and  I believe it is now serving that purpose very successfully. Its intrinsic value was, I understand, $1,-  600.  GIFT FOR AN OPERA STAR.  A pretty little bouquet was ordered the other day, and one that  was by no means costly.

ETIQUETTE ON SHIPBOARD.  Woman Can Not bo Too Careful of  Own Dignity.  On an ocean steamship passengers usually talk to each other  without a formal introduction, and  there is no harm in this, unless you  be a young girl travelling alone. In  that case you must keep absolutely  to yourself, unless circumstances  arise when you can talk to some  older woman. Should you be travelling with a party and should you  make acquaintance .vhile on the  steamer, try to remember that they  are only passing and do not make  of them confidential friends. Steamer friends may be desirable or most  undesirable. They come without  references.and they pass without  a good-bye. Thc chances are that  you will never sec them again, so  let them go without hearing your  family history and all about your  own trials. It sometimes happens  that lifelong friends are made upon the sea. but this is the exception  and not the rule, and, in any case,  such friendships are cemented upon the land.  To sum up, you cannot be too  careful of your own dignity. You  _,ast do nothing to make fellow-  travellers uncomfortable, and you  must seek to he unobtrusive and  independent of help. The confiding and helpless woman should  never travel anywhere alone. Self-  ifliance is one of the first requisites of a good traveller.
