He will put on a large  force of - workmen, and expects to  have the work pretty well cleaned up  inside of a month. Messrs. Russell  & Earl, the contractors, are pushing  the work in the hope of getting the  buildings they have in hand well  roofed before snow comes.  COMMENDABLE ENTERPRISE  NEVER DISCRIMINATES-OH, NO!  Two Boards of Trade in the Okanagan���������������������������Enderby and Vernon���������������������������have  rods in pickle for the C.P.R. The  former wants to know why Enderby  did not enjoy the privilege of excursion rates to New Westminster fair,  and the latter why it was not granted free transportation for its Toronto fair exhibit and a man in charge,  the same as was accorded the Nelson  Board of Trade. Yet it is often said  by officials of the road that the company never discriminates.- K elowna  Courier.:  Thanksgiving evening the music-  loving public of Enderby missed one  of the best entertainments that has  ever come to the town. Dawson May  presented his Lyceum Concert Company of high-class artists to a house  of barely 25 people. It was a shame  to, see this excellent company.- playing to such a house, when it is an  acknowledged fact that -Enderby is  most ready to patronize to the lull-  est extent anything that is really  good. Those who were present and  heard the company are unanimous in  their praise of each artist. The  smallness of the audience did not deter the company from putting on its  best. It was a "frost"���������������������������they could  see that���������������������������but an unintentional one.  Enderby is ever ready to do the, fair  thing. . The trouble was, no'doubt,"-  in the advertising, or lack of it, and  then, too, perhaps big Thanksgiving  dinners had something to do with it.  Enderby theatre goers have ever  been up against the uncertainty of  these traveling companies. An aggregation of "barn-stormer" will get  the big audience, very often,, to the  disgust of everybody, and then when  a company of artists comes along,  the audience will be so small that  those present feel ashamed.  In order to. overcome this uncertainty, and' insure" Enderby getting  the best on the road���������������������������and giving only  to the best���������������������������Mr. A. Reeves, our enterprising druggist, has taken the  responsibility bf playing in Enderby  this season, a series of five attractions. These are known as the Star  Lyceum Course, and are booked by  Mr. C. P. Walker, of the Walker Theater of Winnipeg. Anything presented by this great amusement director  of Canada,-is sure to be of the first-  rank. This course of high-class entertainments is not booked on a commission basis. Mr. Reeves had to  take them at a high price, and the  entire risk of making the enterprise  pay devolves upon the amusement  lovers of Enderby. These five entertainments will be given at three  points only in the Valley���������������������������Enderby,  .Vernon and Kelowna. They will begin the first week in November and  come at intervals of about three  weeks. It is to" the credit of Mr.  Reeves that he has secured these entertainments for Enderby, and it is  up to our   people    to    give him the  WALKER'S  WEEKLY  Published every Thursday at Enderby, the Gats-Wny of the famous Okanagan, Land of the Bis Canadian Red Apple and the Calif ornia of Canada  Entered-in the Post Office at Enderby, B.

Mr. Ousterhout of  Vernon, officiating. Thanksgiving  Day evening a supper was provided  by the Ladies Aid in thc new room  in the church.  Walter McRaye, the well-known  humorist, with Miss Eileen Maguire,  contralto soloist, nnd Miss Lucy  Webling, the popular entertainer, will  appear in K. of P. hall on November  9th. They give a very pleasing entertainment and are strongly recommended.

A meeting of the Enderby Conservative Association will be held in the  parlors of the King Edward Hotel,  next ^Saturday afternoon at 2 p. m.,  for the-purpose of electing delegates  to attend the Conservative convention at Vernon, November 2nd.

WAIK.R  -^^���������������������������^-  X]  ONE   MAN'S POINT OF VIEW  CONDITIONS in Enderby's advance are now too important  to breed petty jealousies.  There is now allied with the desire  for gain the desire for progress, improved methods, a cleaner, saner,  _broader_=___de_v_elopmen_t,__=and___:p_LL__j_f.  success in these important matters is  uppermost in the heart of every good  citizen. The business man recognizes  that he receives his dividends not  alone in dollars, and the working  man his wages not alone in his paycheck. With the dollar the business  man receives something better, and  with his paycheck the laborer something larger���������������������������a dividend in the shape  of satisfaction in being instrumental  in carrying forward to a higher-and  better development thc business or  occupation he is engaged in and tlie  town he has . made his home. Permanent success is not obtained except by fair and honorable dealing,  and loyalty to local institutions, and'  the display of good sense and rare  judgment in all the relations of community life. There is no room for  the knocker and the winner here. In  nine cases out of ten, he is one who  has failed to make good and has had  to go down before the man he assails  and damns. In the tenth case, hc is  a false alarm. We should take pride  in our manufacturing and business  institutions; speak well of them;  patronize them; stand pat for Enderby and the products of Enderby. If  our business men succeed, our town  reaps the benefit; if you speak a good  word for the institutions of the town  you speak a good word for yourself:  and remember this, EVERY KNOCK  COMES HOME TO ROOST. Plant  flowers and let love grow.  credit of the province torn to shreds.  We were the laughing stock of all  Canada, and an appeal to the financial world was answered by the  merry ha, ha. Hon. Richard McBride and his colleagues went at the  task before them as businessmen, and  out of chaos they >brought order.  We have heard nothing worthy of  credance uttered against the McBride government. The Premier  comes before the electorate for its  endorsation oi his record and the  record_of his coUuagues.   He gives  w  HEN we look back a few years  over the political life of the  Province, and recall to mind  the chaotic condition in which it was  when the Hon. Richard McBride was  called upon to form a government,  we cannot but admire the man for  what he has accomplished. Regardless of one's political affiliations, he  must recognize the facts as they are.  Six years ago the province was in a'  deplorable condition, politically.  Hybrid coalition governments were  N  the substance of a railway policy  which he intends to pursue if his  government is returned to power.  The only criticism of this policy by  the opposition papers thus far is, or  has been, that it is a vote-getting  policy. After the years of excellent  service that the Hon. Mr. McBride  has rendered to the province, we certainly should regret very much to  see him come before the people with  a railway policy.that was not .a. vote  getting policy. A vote getting policy  must be a pretty   good   policy.  Walker's Weekly, Enderby, advocates the taxation of church property  the same as any other.���������������������������Exchange.  OT exactly, brother, Walker's  Weekly advocates the taxation  of the privute home of the  salaried parson, the same as the taxation of the private home of the salaried clerk, or the salaried workman  of any other calling, or the taxatioju  of the home and business property of  the business or professional man.  Wc believe the greatest mistake of  thc age is in the orthodox system ol  pauperizing the pulpit. Church edifices are public institutions, and as  such should be free from taxation,  thc same as public parks, public  schools, public libraries, or any like  institution whose object is the better  making of men and society. But we  see no reason why the parson or the  preacher who makes his living in and  through the church should be exempt  from taxation any more than the  school teacher, or the public servant  in any other department of the service.   The. preacher is paid a stipu-  sonable than to exempt any other  householder. Rev.^ Richard Holmes  has the correct idea when he says:  "Such gifts are demoralizing. So  are half-fare permits on railroads,  which at one clip take out half of  the recipient's spirit of independence.  Such things spoil.the pulpit by making it feel itself entitled to privileges  beyond those which the pew enjoys.  Again, it has a tendency to make the  minister a kind of dead-head. He is  getting something for nothing."  support his enterprise' deserves.  The first of the   course will be the  Cassels-Percival    Company,,  consisting of Miss   Caroline Cassels,'.prima_-  Donna Contralto;    Percival, the' wiz-*  ard;  and Miss  Eveline Fcnwick, vib-  liniste.   Just a word  about each of -  these artists to give our readers an  idea of their quality:   "Caroline C? s-  sels has   a   finely ' trained- contralto  voice of exquisite timbre,  and sings  with much delicacy of expression and  rare sympathy."���������������������������Toronto Globe.      ���������������������������.-  "Percival is   not   only a magician "  but an actor' and   a good actor."���������������������������  Toronto News.

W  HEN Lord Nelson said that he  found his one blind eye quite  as useful as the other, he was  thinking of the faults and frailties  in the world which he did not see,  and with which he was not concerned  And there is a great moral in Lord  Nelson's words. Much of life's joys  escapes us when we spend our time  with eyes focusscd upon the faults of  life as we see it in those about us.  The man who believes lie-can improve existing conditions,, should be  given every encouragement so long  as he confines himself to his own operations and his own liberties, .but  when he steps beyond this and' he attempts to spread his operation's to  curtail the liberty of his neighbor's,  he is exceeding the speed limit,  Man's business is to work���������������������������to surmount difficulties, to endure hardships, to solve problems, to overcome tlie inertia of his own nature���������������������������  to love more and hate less���������������������������the rest  will take care of itself much better-  very much better���������������������������than men can take  care of it.  The Armstrong. Advertiser - report's '  no less than six marriages there* last'  week, and the editor puts this in "a  "scare head":  "Market very active-  Girls in Great Demand!"   The marriages were:   .Mr.    Alfred' Slater to  Miss Cecilia Mary Hamner, by Rev.  Mr. Campbell; Thos.  J. W.

I  T would not be a great surprise  to    anyone,    and   it would be a  great pleasure to everyone, if at  the approaching    provincial election,  Mr. Price Ellison were sent back by  an appreciative    constituency by acclamation.   His seat may be contested,  but it would mean political suicide for the man who would venture  to take from our persistent member  the honor he has so well carried. Mr.  Ellison has been a faithful representative of this important district.   He  has fought for    each and every part  of the riding,  when fighting was ne-  latcd salary,  the same ns the man-1 cessary,  and has    never relinquished  ager of a store, or a clerk, or an em-   his hold, either upon the government  ployee of any kind. His salary is  paid by the public and his church adherents. He is paid a salary so that  he may pay his way as other men  must.

Mr.  Ellison is stronger to-day than hc  ever was, and it would be a fitting  recognition of the service he has rendered if at this time he could be sent  back to Victoria with the solid support of a solid district.

Tho very first day I spent in  Rosedale convinced me as things  weren't as they should be between  the missus an' master. As I sat  on the edge o' my bed in the attic  before turuin' in J iiad it-over in my  mind. Ifc was none o' my bizness,  o' course. Slavics ain't paid to  concern themselves in the private  affairs of the family, hut you can  take, it from one who knows, they  do, an'  rest.  - 'Ome  got to  their  I'm just a female like the  ly Liz, they call me,  plead   guilty;   but,  chippiir,    1    pride  ii  big    strain  sense goes with  the  an'   the  soft    lf__rt.  I'd been  accustomed  an'  _  I've  all  ���������������������������were not so well off in those days  and I had to."  "What you want to keep you  busy is a precious little kiddy," I  said, never thkikin'.  She looked at me queerly, and  her face went suddenly drawn. Before I'd done bitin' my silly tongue  she was out of the kitchen, cryin'  like a child.  I hadn't got to puzzle any more.  It conic upon me like a flash that I  had found her trouble. There had  been no kiddy.  When, a hit later, I crept into  the dining-room lo say I was sorry,  1 found her .stretched on the couch,  with her face hidden in her arms,  sobbin'  in'.    I  as ii  tried  her heart was break-  to find words to corn-  there's  place,  pity.  it seemed  that   they  or  niesclf  o'  common-  will in'   hand  After  what  to see in my  to me a ter-  should  lose,  last  rihle  even  for  an  hour,   the    happiness  that ought- to ha' been theirs.  But two jobs I'd had since father told mc to make one less mouth  to feed. The first lasted for nineteen years; the last, just one. That-  one might have lasted me out, for  I'm no flighty Jane, but it wasn't  tn be. They were quite young, and  newly married, when ��������������������������� I went- to  them, and the brightest, sunniest  couple as ever breathed. Made for  each other, they were; never in this  world was there a happier little  paradise. And then, at the end of  just one short year. God took her  with the baby, and left him with  all the hope dashed out of his life.  They tell me I've got rummy ideas  that I'm old-fashioned. Perhaps I  am. But, anyway, my notion o'  married life was just like theirs���������������������������  sv. eet-heartin' together through the  glad years, with no d;v; wasted in  foolish quarrelling, with no cause  given for regret���������������������������just a cheery journey together, each helping thc other  over the rough places, until thc  long rest.  My day in Rosedale showed me  very clearly that the new master  an' missus were not taking the  journey together, and it worried  me. The signs couldn't be mistook.  The bare civility afc meal times, the  going out to the club without a  word afterwards���������������������������all showed me  plainly that they were apart. Their  coldness towards each other struck  a chill in me. I didn't feel at home.  As I took down my hair the question shot into my brain, "What yer  goin' to do about it, Liz." And,  because 1 knew what happiness perfect understanding brings, I want-  ta them to know it, too- I wanted  them to be sweethearts always.  The picture of the missus, smiling happily in his arms, sent me to  sleep.  In thc days that followed I quietly watched them. It was plain  as the nose on my face that they  had married for love, and that the  coolness had come gradual. They  were both, I learned, about thc  same age, just turned thirty, and  ^katMi^h^nTri--^  was a strong, well-made, handsome  man, and, from his look an' manner, you could tell he was one who  got things done.  She was a delicate-looking woman, who. in happier days, had  been pretty. The tired look in her  eyes, the white, lined face, the grey  hairs showin' in thc black, had all  come since those days, with other  little signs that told me she had  lost the desire to take pride in her  looks.  They d:d not quarrel. A good  flare-up would, possibly, have been  better for both; but she wa.s not  that sort. They simply took their  own ways���������������������������he to his work and pleasure, she to her household concerns  an' brooding. Oh. yes, I could sec  it. Though in front of him she acted the "don't cure," she could not  hide from mc that she was wretched.  It looked like a hard case, but,  as time passed, and I got to know  her and him better, and she learned  to like and trust,'mc, the reason  come clearer, and I could see it  was my job.  The trouble with her was that  she'd allowed herself to get into  a sickly state o' ������������������������������������������������������miiid, and, for the  benefit of all concerned, I set about  the cure. Early on she had objected to my. habit o' singin' while I  worked���������������������������said it got on her nerves.  I'm no primmer donna, I'm aware,  but it ain't all that raspy. The  third time of askiV I let out. My  little sermon hit home. Her face  flushed, and she seemed inclined  tt  say something short.  fort her; but they wouldn't conic.  Something seemed to choke them  back. All that it meant t-o her  came upon mc with a rush, and I  found  niesclf dabbin'   my  eyes.  She was a i nie, lovin' woman,  who had dreamed, as most of us do,  oi the fiunblirt' little hands, the  snugglin' little face, of our very  own. and the crown of motherhood  had been denied her. In the minute  f stood there silent I understood,  and my heart ached for her. Disappointment had changed her world,  and the davs and  week? of lonely  as sure,  vou    will    find him  just  again  "You think so, Liz?" she cried,  trembling-  "Sure of it!"  "Come and dig out the dress,"  she said. * "���������������������������  And, laughin' at our pleasant  thoughts,  we tripped upstairs.  The rest of, that day, until the  usual hour . of 'his homecoming,  passed like a dream. The differ-  once in the missus you'd hardly credit. She seemed another woman  altogether.      Now  that  her  mind  not think you  You have been  this time! -Jt���������������������������  cared any longer!  waiting for me all  - What a blind fool  I have been!",  "I wanted.you to.���������������������������come���������������������������to tell  you I'm sorry .-' she said.

"But-  There's many  vours.      You  put my arms about hc-r, and did my  best- to comfort  her.  "I know,  missus,"  when she had grown  it's wrong to grieve,  worse troubles than  have your husband "  "My husband cares nothing for  me!" she cried. "I am shut out  <f his life!"  "You s' ut yourself out, *dcarie,"  T said gently. "1 am sure of it.  I'm only 'Omcly Liz'. No man will  ever call me wife now, but 1 think  I can understand why you two have  gone apart, and I'd like to see you  happy together again. Little children come to bind affection closer,  true enough, and where the bles-  sin' is denied the greater the call  for lovin'-kindncss. That's _ where  you've failed, dearie. Forgive me  if I hurt you by my plain speakin',  but it seems to me you've lived  with disappointment so long it's  made you-bitter A man is made  different to us; he is of coarser  clay. He would not understand  ���������������������������why you should continue to fret���������������������������"  "Hc was too busy making a position to care!"  she cried.  "Oh, no!" I said. "He cared;  but I think he would care more to  see the change in you. It would  grieve him to see you so different.  Tilings do not come to such a pass  between man an' wife until one despairs of rekindling affection. If  tho years have been wretched for  you. they have been as much to  him; and, because he has found no  pleasure in his home life, he has  been tempted to seek it with friends  so widening the gulf between you.  Why not take hands again, dearie 1  Why not meet him to-night with a  smilin' face, an' say you're sorry.  I know he would .mile, too, and  that his arms would hold you.

A most romantic marriage was  celebrated at Carshalton. England,  recently, which was the outcome of  a compact entered into thirty-seven  years' ago.  y  Two cousins were married on the  same day in 1872 at New Brentford  t-o Mr. Iiugh Stevens and Mr. John  Dunstonc. The two brides a:.;d the  two bridegrooms agreed, after the  ceremony, that if it should be'possible in the future the bride w;ho  survived her husband should marry the husband who outlived his  wife.  Mr. Stevens died in 1SS2, but Mrs.  Dunstonc was still living, and the  widow married Mr. Edward Benjamin Goodwin, of Brentford, who  died in 1399.  Mrs. Dunstonc died recently, and  so the old compact was fulfilled by  the marriage of Mrs. Goodwin to  Mr. Dunstone.  Mrs. Goodwin was given away by  flier nephew, land her bridesmaid  was one of her daughters by her  first marriage. The best man was  tlie son of the'bridegroom.  sho  you  and  still  for  the  life of  me,  find words to say to her.  "Poor,    sentimental    Liz!"  cried.

When the half-  hour chimed, I took my alarm clock  and, after windin' it, crept to the  dining-room to say good-night. Quietly I opened the door, and looked  in. to find her stretched on the  hearthrug, with one ami under her  head, asleep.  Gently closing the door again, I  stole back to the kitchen, and sat  down to wait. A few minutes before twelve his key grated in the  door, and at the sound I shot up,  with my hand pressed to my berast.  I heard him bolt the outer door.  I stood there shakin' while he hung  his coat an' hat on the stand, and  crossed to the dining-room.  "Mary!"  I caught his cry, and thc door  shut behind him. Then���������������������������I am not  ashamed to own it���������������������������I stole quickly  along the hall, and listened.  Iiis shout must have aroused her,  for I heard her whisper, as if dazed :  "Ned!"  "Mary!"   he cried; and  I  think  Lo must have stopped to raise her  'What on earth-  up.  And then he stopped, as if the  meaning of her dress and thc set-  out table had come to him; and for  quite a spell I heard no sound, until came thc pitiful outburst of  ehokin' sobs she could no longer  hold back.

When about to iron a dress begin  afc tho bodice, next iron the sleeves,  and lastly the skirt, commencing  at the upper part.  The corners of rugs may be prevented from curling by sewing on  their under edges a narrow piece  of webbing, such as is used in holding furniture springs in place.

If the too volatile Crown Prince  George of Servia. is not called ou  to pay. any-worse penalty for his  escapades than the loss of his right  ti the throne of the Balkan kingdom he will be very lucky.  He has proved himself one of the  stormy petrels of Royalty. Even  v>hene a mere boy, as a student in  Paris, he was beyond all control;  and since ho became Crown Prince  hc. has made himself notorious by  bis proceedings.  A full list of his escapades would  make unpleasant reading. His life  has been full of folly, vice, and acts  of mad cruelty. But at last the  climax has come. One of the  Crown Prince's servants, ELolako-  vitch, died, and it was given out  that ho had fallen downstairs by  accident. But soon it began to be  whispered that he had been knocked senseless and kicked to death  by Prince George as a punishment  for not putting his master's boots  and trousers in the right.place.  The, Crown Priuce denied the  charge, but announced that he resigned his claims on thc Crown,  "as a vindication of his^ honor."  Even if ho repents his resignation,  he has a very poor chance of being  .a king.    The Serbs hate and are  ASHAMED OF HIM,  and will do everything they can to  keep him off their throne.  By an ironical coincidence, Austria, who is threatening tb crush1  Servia, is . somewhat, in the same  trouble as her little neighbor of the  Balkans.

He reEuscd ,to learn anything, and  -thought-.ofi-=-nothing=_=.biit___ho_w__=_toJ_  amuse himself. As a, result he has  grown up ignorant, reactionary,  and as insanely proud -as ho is incapable, and his conduct in the past  has lost him the sympathy and respect of his future subjects.  Of all thc Great Powers, Russia  has probably had the most heirs-  apparent addicted to playing the  fascinating but occasionally expensive game of "ducksand drakes.'J^lio  most tragically famous of all was  Alexis, thc son of Peter tho Great.  He was a drunkard and a gambler.  Peter loved him, but ho loved Russia better. Hc asked himself what  would happen to -thc Empire if his  son came to thc throne. The answer  was a terrible one. By Peter's  orders Alexis was tried and condemned to death. He was never  publicly executed, bub he disappeared into a prison, and the world  never saw him again.  Another Russian heir-apparent  was the Grand Duke Constantino,  the next eldest brother of Alexander I.   His life was full of  WILD FREAKS AND REVELRY.  Finally he fell madly in love with  a woman of low birth. He could nob  marry her without the Czar's permission, and Alexander, foreseeing  that fearful things would happen if  Oonstantine would formally renounce his rights to the throne.  The Grand Duke consented.  When Alexander died Constantino was forced to keep his word,  and his younger brother, Nicholas,  became Czar. But Oonstantine  was sulky and discontented, and  gave eo much trouble that he was  finally banished to a dreary libtlo  frontier town in Lithunia, which  was practically his prison, since he  Historical novelists   and dramatists are fond of depicting Don Carlos, the eldest son of Philip II. of  Spain, as a hero of romance, who  met a tragic fate because he was  a friend of liberty and wished to  help those who wero oppressed. As  a matter of cold fact, however, Don  Carlos was another Crown Prince  George,  only worse.    He shunned  thc great soldiers    and statesmen  who thronged his father's Court,  and sought his friends and associates in tho lowest drinking shops.  Finally, just for the sake of enjoying a new excitement, he joined  a conspiracy   against   his "father's  life.    He was thrown into prison,  and it was given out that he had  died.   But his actual fate is one of  thc darkest mysteries of history.

And, in fact, ifc was the daughter  ol the Austrian Emperor, the Archduchess Giscla, wife of the-regent  -i Bavaria, who was sewing in the  public garden in Vienna.  ,  One of the most inbercsting of(  the romances in Canadian develop-i  ment is the story of the modest be-j  ginning and rapid    growth of thoj  Canadian Northern Railway.      In. ������������������.  1886 Messrs. Mackenzie- and Mann,  formed a   partnership   as railway  contractors and nine   years later j.  they took their first steps towards* -  the Canadian Northern.  "Starting in the  heart of Manitoba, with its wheat bearing lines,-  radiating from the City of Winni-|  peg,  the Canadian    Northern has!  grown to a railroad with over 3,000!  miles of track in the territory to the  West of the Great Lakes, and there  are other   integral   parts already^  constructed and operating, in On-j  tario and the Provinces of the East.}  Viewing a map of the road with-  lhe lines already'constructed, with  the extensions under the contrac-'  tors' hands, and with the proposed  new lines, the Canadian Northern  bids fair to shortly become a transcontinental line sending its traflic  from tidewater to tidewater. -  Many can recall-when there wa8j  no Canadian Northern-Railway ���������������������������,K  when the name of Mackenzie and1,  Mann had no great import.   - An  analysis therefore of the railroad -  properties of these two men cannot but be of-interest to all Cana^  dians. . .   _        .     ."_  The Canadian Northern Ontario  proper (from last annual report,  June, 1908) operated in the West  2,895 miles. Before the close' of tho  year 248 additional miles were completed and utilized���������������������������a total of 3,-  143 miles.  The Caiadian   Northern Ontario . ���������������������������  Railway owns a line���������������������������Toronto   to  Sudbury���������������������������which,    with, extensions  and branches, totals 310 miles.

How have these men been able to  construct a big railway system, and!  that without issuing any stock to!  the public'?' In the first place they'  havo shown great shrewdness in  choosing locations, and it is their  boast that all their lines have paid  from the start.  In    the    second     place,   chiefly  through the-shrowd and economical  borrowing,    have   Mackenzie   andi  Mann been able to construct this(  hig railway system.    Both the Do  minion Government and Provinci  a! Government of  Manitoba  ha:'e  lent their aid to the Railway    by  guaranteeing the bonds.      In tho  later days tho Province of Ontario  has similarly treated  lines  with'n  its boundaries, as    have    also thai  Provinces   of    Saskatchewan    aal  Alberta.  Most of the financing has been  done in Great Britain, that centra  to which all the world turns for fin  ancial aid; but Canadians have  done much for this and other Canadian enterprises.

OCTOBER  28, 1909  ALIVE TO THETR WORK  Thc Grand    Jury,   in its report to  Justice Morrison    at the  Vernon  as-1 injured by  size last    week,   made    at .least two  important suggestions.   One of these I  was  in    response    to    his Lordship's!  complaint at what lie considered   the i  high-handed proceeding of the C.P.R. '  in refusing to hold the train a short I  time at Sicamous, in order to allow  connections with the  train  from  the!  i  West,    in    this   way    forcing  Sheriff;  Wood, -  with    the   prisoners    in    his!  charge to  drive    across  country.   In  view of the fact that the C.P.R. had  received  many    favors from the people of Canada,  his Lordship  said,  it  ,was not too    much   to ask them  to  consider the    interests   of the people  to some    extent,   and    protect them  from an  unnecessary expenditure and  the risk of having    the- prisoners escape.   The Grand    Jury    asked  that  the matter be    referred    to the head  officials  of  the  company.   The  other  matter was    stated    in these words:  'We further   respectfully     .eg to call  your Lordship's attention to the regrettable  frequency  with  which  prisoners have   successfully escaped from  custody.     This   and the unsuccessful  attempts to recapture such offenders,  leads us to suggest an investigation.'  Action on this   last   suggestion at  least, should be prompt and full.   It  has long been a  provincial joke,   on  the ease    with   which   our jail doors  are opened by prisoners, and the notorious   inability   of   the   provincial  police to    cope    with    the criminals  who seem to    infest certain sections  of the province.     Perhaps an investigation  would  reveal nothing that is  not   already   known���������������������������that   the territory which the police are expected to  cover is too great    and too difficult  to travel, yet there is the .possibility  of an investigation  discovering some  way of holding thc   prisoners behind  the bars when once the criminals are  caught.  considered, is a strip of the regular  sheep fencing about 30 inches high,  placed close to the ground, on posts  from 1GJ- to 25 feet.apart, with one  or two strands of barbed wire  stretched above, at intervals of 6, 8,  or ten inches. Such a fence, if properly built, makes a good and lasting  fence for all classes of farm stock.  Horses or cattle are seldom if ever  barbed wire when used as  described, as long as it is kept tight.  As already said, sheep eat readily  most weeds, but they arc particularly fond of the perennial sow thistle,  which has now got quite a hold in  many parts of the district. Seeding  down land infested with this pest  and pasturing it with sheep, would  enable the farmers to get their land  under control more thoroughly and  with less outlay than probably any  other plan.  PREMIER McBRIDB'S POLICY  the  ENCOURAGING  SHEEP RAISING  There comes   from Ottawa a letter  written    by   Mr.     J.   G.  Rutherford,  Live    Stock    Commissioner,    setting  forth the merits of sheep raising, and  more particularly the merits of coyote proof sheep   fencing.   One of the  most    common    reasons    given   why  sheep are not more generally kept on  farms in Western Canada is, that the  losses of both    sheep    and lambs by  coyotes    are    discouragingly    great.  After making a very careful investigation    of   the    question    of fencing  sheep    against    these    animals,    the  Live  Stock    Commissioner    has  prepared the" letter    and article referred  to.   While sheep raising is not extensively gone into here,  the subject is  =or^shoiild=fje=of^uffi-ient^m"p .rfaffc-T  to merit our    consideration.      There  are many reasons why the raising of  sheep in this district should be more  encouraged.   Unlike some other lines  of live    stock    husbandry,  there  has  for many years been little fluctuation  in  the prevailing high  market values  for mutton    sheep.   A  flock af sheep  call for practically no increase.of labor on the    farm���������������������������a most important  factor in   these days.   Sheep may be  marketed  at    almost    any season  of  the year,   at   good    prices, in small  numbers-less than car lots, and with  little trouble.   There is  demand  for    mutton  Sheep and  lambs  utilized on    the  more conveniently Lhan any other  class of fresh meat. As farm scavengers, sheep surpass all other kinds  of .stock, and can be profitably utilized in cleaning dirty weed-infested  land, as they will eat with avidity  almost every species of  weed with which our lands  coming cursed.  The few breeders of pure bred sheep  who have persevered through all the  years of lack of encouragement and  little appreciation, now report greatly increased demand, and are taking  courage, feeling that at last their  favorite hobby is coming to its own.  Nearly all experienced sheep men  agree that any of the ordinary woven wire fences now on the market, if  properly erected, will suffice to keep  sheep IN and coyotes OUT. The  most satisfactory fence, when cost is  In giving an' explanation of  Government's determination to go  to the people at this time, Premier  McBride is credited as saying: "I  have recently been carrying on negotiations with the Canadian Northern  railway company for the extension  of its lines to the Pacific Coast. It  has been my intention not to submit  my railway policy to the people of  British Columbia until I was in a  position to announce a concrete proposition in the nature of a contract  with a responsible organization for  the immediate construction of the  road. This I am able to do in respect of two lines of railway, and it  has therefore seemed advisable to  dissolve the house and ask the approval of the people of the contract  which the government has made.  The house was therefore dissolved,  nominations will be held on Nov. 11,  and elections on Nov. 25th.  "We have entered into a contract  with the C.N.R. for the construction  of a road from the Yellowhead Pass  to Kamloops by way of the Thompson river, from Kamloops to New  Westminster and Vancouver, and  from a point near Vancouver to English Bluff to make first-class connection with Victoria, both for passengers and fre:ght, and to build a railway from Victoria to Barclay Sound.  The distance in all will be 600 miles.  To assist the company in the construction of the road, which will cost  about 550,000 per mile, the government will ask the legislature to guarantee interest at 4 per cent upon  $35,000 per mile. For security the  government will hold a first mortgage on the hues of railway in B. C.  and will have a covenant with the  company indemnifying the province  against any loss. By the time this  railway is finished the C.N.R. will  have at least 5000 miles of line  through a highly productive country.  Thc company has already been guaranteed from other provincial governments interest on its bonds and has  never defaulted in its interest, and  the provinces have never been called  upon to pay a single dollar. No  Asiatics will be employed on the construction and the standard wages  will be paid. Work is to begin within three months after the lieutenant-  governor gives his assent to the bill  and the whole line must be finished  within four years.  "An agreement has also been made  .with the Kettle Valley railway company for the    construction of a line  from Midway   to    Nicola, where connection will be made with the C.P.R.  The    Kettle   Valley    company has a  subsidy from    the   Dominion government for thc    construction of a line  between those -points,    and the provincial  government has arranged  to  revive the old Midway & Vernon subsidy of $5000 per mile for 150 miles,  and to apply it to the route referred  to.   This will entail    a cash subsidy  of ������������������750,000,  which  would call for an  annual- interest charge of $22,000, but  the    Kettle    River    Valley   company  agrees to pay taxes' on the 150 miles,  subsidized,  which will reduce the interest   charges   to   about $9,000    per  year.   For this sum the province will  secure the    construction of 260 miles  of railway through the most.productive part of the province.   This line  will pass through Penticton and "Aspen Grove, where there are large copper deposits, will make a detour to  the south to obtain easy grades until    it    comes    within   six    mile    of  Princeton, where it will swing north  to    Nicola.   In   connection   with the  Nicola branch of the C.P.R. this road  will provide a through route for the  Boundary and Kootenays and give a  new   railroad   to   Spokane.   Thus it  will be seen the government has been  able to   secure    the   construction of  about 860 miles of railway at bn an-  nuar cost of   $9,000,   and open up a  large    and   productive   part    of the  province."  With respect to development  schemes in general, Premier McBride  promised immediate construction of  more public highways, and adjustment of taxation on a more "equitable basis and to- provide for permanency of tenure of crown lands.  In conclusion he stated that on the  points of better terms ��������������������������� and Asiatic  immigration, the government's policy  would not be changed. British Columbia must remain a white man's  country.  Clothing  Satisfaction  Fit  SECRET SOCIETIES  F. PRINGLE  W. M.  A.F.&A.M.

Booth  Still  Accomplishes Wonderful Tasks.  In spite of his eighty years and  flowing white hair and beard, Gen.  Booth, with his smiling face, presents  a cheerful figure. The veteran is the  busiest octogenarian in the country,  and seems to thrive on hard work.  When on his recent motor tour he  rose at seven every morning and retired at 11 o'clock at night, after being occupied the whole of that time  in making speeches, delivering ex-  ."^rt .tions, receiving deputations, and  physician examined mm, ana tnen  recommended his friends to get for  him a small parish in a healthy part  of the country with a .ood stipend,  and wnere mere was some good nsn-  ing. As the world knows, William  Booth did not bury himself in any  village. It was whilst he was ill  that the call came to him to go afield  and extend the.ranks of his army until its numbers should be countless.  He did so, and millions, in many  parts of the world, have reason to  fcless the Salvation Army and its  great founder���������������������������William Booth.

It is interesting to note that on his tour  the general traveled 8,290 miles by  motor, addressed 480 meetings, and  has appealed to, more than 6,000,000  people. He has secured nearly 1,000  converts, and 259 men and women  have become candidates for commissions in the Salvation Army. Despite  his eighty years the general's shoulders are square and his figure tall and  upright. There is the same piercing  glance from his keen, . kindly eyes  and the same .sympathetic tone . in  his strong voice that characterized  him in years gone by.-. During the  early years' of hi3 wo^k in the East  End of London his health broke down,  and he wandered about the country  seeking a.renewal of it, and apparent-  ly ' seeking in vain. His friends  thought he had preached his last address itnd cave him ud.    A famous  Care of Cream.  Aside from tlie scouring of cream,  there are other things which enter Into  Its care and which should be observed  to insure cream of first quality. Cream  rapidly takes up odors and for this  reason should be kept In a pure atmosphere. Do not set cream in the  kitchen, for It will absorb kitchen  odors. A great deal of cream, otherwise first grade, tastes of fried onions  and of fried ham and of tobacco, all  of which things may hare been used In  the kitchen. Likewise do .not place  the cream can in the cellar where there  are potatoes and cabbage and other  vegetables. Keep the cream away  from the barn, for the barn and cowy  odors are the most objectionable odora  tt Is possible for cream to have.

Valuing    the  venom    by  light, we find that it fetches mure per  Ince than any of tlie precious metals.  |e market price at present is from 20s.  2;">s. a grain, or something coming up  _G,000 per pound Troy:   that is  the  Le quoted on  thc Sydney side.      But  fix these huge figures fail to bring to  market a quantity to meet the <!o-  ind in more than a partial way.  ffhe     difficulties     and   dangers    con-  lctc.1 with the collection of the venom  T<rel.    accounted i'or   this.   'J'he inade-  |acy  of   tlie   appliances   used   iu  cap-  [���������������������������iii _  the snakes  prevents   many  from  |dt:>*_iking thc work; other causes also  '.tribute to deter persons  from auopt-  liio employment and  following it in  I..1, .cematic manner.    The vonom-bear-  I.' snakes near  the large  centres    are  liinlv found in swanius and  morasses,  Id have    to    be sought    for iu   early  liming or at twilight, when a    slight  lidvortence might have bad results. The  lake    whose   venom is wanted for the  lirket must be captured alive.  Almost  lyone   asquainled   with  the   bush   can  lil  a  snake;  but capturing  it alive  is  lite   a different    matter ���������������������������that  needs  |rve. dexterity and certainty of touch,  lakes, as a rule, try to get away from  |e person who  attacks  them:  but  ox-  )tions have to be taken into account.  the nesting season a snake may dollop   unusual   courage,   and   even   ad-  |nce upon   the person attacking.   Even,  wove'--  with    snakes    retreating,   the  Ipluring act must be swift, ueat    and  lrfec-L    It seems easy  to an onlooker,  It it is because, tlie capturer has begun  |th  a   superb  nerve  and has  practised  art  till  his  hand  moves as  rapidly  Ld noise'ossly as his eye.     Some men  fpend on their fingers alone with many  |uds  of  snakes;    others  use  a batten  hold  the head down, till the  fingers  llain the requisite _rip on the back of  [e head. The fingers must grip tightly  Id. hold finnlv 'till the    reptile   is dels ited in a bag or box.   li it were struck  till  a  stick    or  held    down,   with   a  Irked    stick, as  is the    usual  process  lieu a snake is captured for show purines,  it would  empty it venom sac in  le fight, and perhaps break  its poison  lii'js.   thus  seriously   reducing   or   de-  jroying its  market value  as  a  venom  k.uce.r.    It is, therefore, necessary  to  lpture. it in its natural state and pre-  rvi> it  in that state  till  it  goes into  le. hands of the ooerutor.  Some operates extract the poison by  Itling out thc vusoii bag in its entirety,  fiey cut into    the snake .    head, and,  iv'mg detached the glands, fasten    the  lives and store them awav in bottles;  Ihoi _ goad  the siuike to bite    through  Ji di _ rubber bauds and cicct its venom  |i=nr_^la__^plat-e=l)uiieat.i7=H4it-lier-w-a-j-  )cures    the venom;   but in  the   latter  Ire mu.t  be  taken  to  prevent  the  infusion     of   impurities.

The ringed  snake and  a  mimic,  of others do not fatally injure, but  prry  enough   venom     to   make    them  orth pursuing.  The more venom, how-  Ivor,  and the  more deadly  it  is  i .cog-  |ized  as  being,  the  better   the  reward  ie capturer and operator.  'J'he death-adder is probably the most  | ..idly  of Australian   reptiles.    In com-  ���������������������������arisons made during the  past year it  ���������������������������ut* up the largest proportion of deaths  lu bites.     Jn 100 eases of snake bites re-  driic'il over a period the death-adder is  J red i led with 10 cases, and in five      of  I'.iein death resulted; the tiger-., inkc fig-  Ires in 33 cases, with 15 deaths, and the  |_o\t.n   snake  in   32   cases,   wi'h       10  Tenths.   'J'he dreaded blacksnake is credited in this official list with 87 eases, of  L-liieh not one was fatal. But. the much-  l.readed    snakes    have    larger    poison  l.lands. and, apart from the potency of  he poison, ore valuable for the copiousness of tiie supply. Four of the six families of fresh water snakes arc venomous  .ml all Australia's marine snakes are so.  'he area over which the snake venom  I id us try may lie pursued is,  therefore,  iking the small with the large, extremely extcn.iv..''  The   price   per   pound   lor   yeno  fakes away the breath; but such a  quantity a . a pound is hard lo collect.  All so far collected iu Australia falls  con-iidorably under a pound. A robust  snake of the: most deadly class, treated  with the greatest care and the oest apparatus, will not discharge more than a  grain at a bite. -This grain will sell on  the market for a littlc-'over 20 shillings;  that is. supposing the venom lias reached its tube free from all impurities. 'J'he  20 shillings has consequently to be  divided among all who have contributed,  from tlie catching of the reptile to  the. selling of the poison. Those who  work in the swamps and s. ''lies must  camp in these places to oafch their prey  morning and evening: they have to  shift camp frequently lo keep in touch  with the best varieties; they must keep  their snakes alive till they deliver them  to the operator in town, and must then  lose them if their fangs have been broken accidentally or otherwise. A fair estimate is that the capturer gets five  shillings for every snake of his class  venomous order lm delivers safe and  sound to thc operator. The operator lias  lo divide the balance of the 20 shillings  between himself and those who help him  to negotiate Jiis sales.  'J'he calculation is' based on the assumption that each snake is valued at  one discharge only. That used to be,  and is still, except in rare cases, the  .snake's value;; brut already .a (beginning has been made in what some call  se.ake milking; that is, thc snake,  after discharging it? stock of venom,  is put away and called upon after a  time for another . and another discharge. A snake's discharge- after a  long rest differs in quality aud quantity from a discharge on a second bite  immediately after the first one. On  this ground ihe bites of a snake fatal  in one case and non-fatal in another  are easily explained. The poison in  tho second bite was simply less in  quantity arid qualify than in the first.  But with t:".me to rest the poison  glands refill and the original degree  of potency is regained. This principle being recognized, the deadly snake  is treated as a valuable pet. . After  intervals of a couple of days it is  taken again at the 'apparatus with the  India rubber and glass slide, and once  more delivered of its supply of venom.  This, it is obvious, can go on indefinitely: but ifc means the housing of  the reptiles and a systematic form of  management not yet thoroughly understood. Jf adopted on _ large scale  the system will lead to a pronounced  change in t_i������������������ commercial value of the  reptiles. Whether it will increase the  value of the services of the capturer  and operator, or lead to a reduction in  the price per ounce of th. commodity  remains to be seen.  What is absolutely nc.essary for thc  cultivation . of the industry on satisfactory 1 ii_o.=_ is a classification of the  venoms. This ��������������������������� work is proceeding,  but much remains to be done. The  oficial paper published recently by Dr.  Tidswell, of the New South Wales  Health Department, states, as the results of laboratory oxpi.-rin.cuts on  rabbits, certain conclusions whi.*_ may  be taken as ihe beginning of a classification system. Tlie experiments  referred to place tiger-snake venom  first. Tt was found 14 times nioi-p  deadly than tliat of the black snake,  and four times deadlier than that of  the brown snake and death-adder.  The average amounts yielded at a bite  show.-tha.-the.doa lh_adder.gayc_____throe.  time? more than the tiger, seven  times more than the black, and almost 17 times more than the brown  sua ice.

All had gone well in the little house-  bold up til-i this lime. The father was  temperate and industrious, while thc  mother miniisterc-d to the needs of her  little ones with true maternal love. The  parish -prirst was a frequent caller afc  the little house, and ljajoie was a regular attendant at the parish church.  r. LI_NA'S" GOD-MOTHER.  When Lena wa.s born, the priest was  called to perform the christening. The  lather's sister, Mis. Heleiva Lajoie, was  present to officiate a-s god-mother, and  after her the. baby girl ..was named���������������������������  Lena. For a w.iile all continued to go  wt'li. Other children were born, and  there was happiness in the little French-  Canadian home..,  THE  GREEN,J_OLD   MONSTER...  But gradually' a-strange transformation came over Uhe mother. ' Her  motherly affe.t'ibn yielded place to neglect of' her children and indifference  concerning the welfare of the home. In  .im. she became addicted to bad habits,  and the. Lajoie home, which had once  been the dwelling place of that happiness unalloyed Which pervades many  pleasant homes of Fren.li Canada be-  ofitno the. abode of unha.ppiness and  gloom and filth. But M.rs. Lajoie's  niind was not unbalanced, as many  have suppose!. Lajoie's relatives bitterly resented- the woman's actions and  were not backward iu making their fe-  pii:iUjiirii_kiiq\vn to her. This :circum-  . ta nee feif t o "the ^vrecking^of'tilre^lronve!"  Of all the children little Lena bore  the closest resemblance to the father's  people. '.Moreover, her features were  verv similar to those of her aunt, after  whom she had beOn named, and whom  Mrs. Lajoie haled with a'bitter hatred,  as Mi^s.'Helena Lajoie had been especially strong in her denunciation of the  life the mother was leading. Mrs. Lajoie planned that revenge would be  hi. . She would wroa.k- vengeance upon her little daughter Lena, whose face  brought to mind'Lajoie's people every  hour'i)f the day, and who bore the mune  of this detested aunt.  W.iKN* C1UJI0LTV ISECAX.  When the little girl was five years of  ime the mother's'maltreatment began.  The child was too small to reach up lo  (he dish-pan, so the mother ..s.eiir-ed a  small box. on which litttle Lena stood  as she washed the dishes three times  a day. This unrelenting persecution  continued without ceasing. The. child  had to split the wood, carry the wat'.-r.  and do all the drudgery of the household, her only reward al the bauds of  lie:- mother 'being merciless boatings  fivm time to time.  Four years ago the Lajoie's removed to Aylmer,'Nelson Lajoie having  secured a "job'' in Prater's mill." lice  the heartless mother's cruel treatment  of the child was resumed. Discrimination against Lena was apparent at  aii times. Not that the other chifdren  wero treated kindly, or even decently--  a filthier and nior'e unkempt lot would  be hard to imagine���������������������������but not one.of them  ever did a tap of work. The eldest  daughter, J3 yoars'of age, followed very  rapidly in the footsteps of her mother-  slovenly and lazy, dirty and Illiterate,  predisposed to everything that was bad.  v     NO PLAY FOR LENA.  None of tho children attended school,  as there are no truancy laws iu Quebec. They whiled away all their time  playing on the street with the other  children.  But not so with little Lena. Never  once in those long four years, di.la.re  flu   neighbor*, wm   iho,   see. pUyiug  on the street. After completing her  work she was usually beaten by her  mother with a stick without the slightest provocation.  On'one occasion one of the little boys  cut his toe very badly and this event  occasioned great excitement, in the  household. In the midst of the melee  the mother espied Lena sitting on !i,_  stairs, as she had been ordered to do.  Seizing the child she gave her a ihra.'-h-  ing from which she did not recover for  several days. "I didn't lick lmr half  hard enough,'' said the mother to one  of the neighbors who expostulated with  her    for   so abusing h'.T own offspring.  After the child'had been whipped  she was always told to "sit on .ho  stairs and not say a word." or as a  more severe form of punishment, to  kneel on the stairs without supporting herself by her hands on the wall."  WARNING OF NO AVAIL.  Two years ago Village Constable Per-  riere warned Mrs. Lajoie that tin: authorities would lake action if the mother's cruelty was not stopped. Then it  was that the child had a brief respite  from her mother's inexorable Iron, nie'it.  For two days she-, went to school, and  then the mother's cruelty re-connnenccd.  POOR CIULO WAS FAMISHED.  Lena never occupied a place at the  table with the other children -and was  given- but sparingly of the scraps  which remained from the meals. The  other children had' rude beds at night  but Lena slept upon the floor.  The child was so famished that sho  used to pick up tiie meat bones whicli  had been thrown into the back yard  and ravenously devour the little shreds  of meal left "on them. Frequently she  gained access, to the flour-bag at night  and ate the dry flour to satisfy her  hunger. The mother discovered this  and suspended thin, g    of    flour by a  rope  from     the    ceiling,  bevond    rliu  girl's   roach:  On'e'. night Lena stole downstairs after all were asleep, mounted __ chair,  cut a small hole in the comer of the  hag and obtained a cup of flour. Th'n.  together with some potato peeling.- -  which she, gathered , into her little  apron, in the yard.- constitute,1' her  meal���������������������������all she had had for a whole day.

ENDERBY  The nobility of England stand  aghast at the caustic tongue-lashing  given them last week by Sir Lloyd-  George. It is said that never in the  history of England did they receive  such bitter words from a man so  high in the affairs -of the nation, and  they are too dazed to understand its  full meaning. Those who heard  Lloyd-George at his Newcastle speech  say he poured out his hot, bitter  words with a sort of intoxicated joy;  with the air of a man who would  gladly see the lords and everything  else overthrown   that   stands in his  ������������������_  way. Some of his most caustic /passages follow: "There has been a  great slump in dukes. A fully equipped duke costs as much to keep as a  Dreadnaught. They are just as great  a terror and they last longer.  "As long as they were contented to  be mere idols on pedestals, preserving that stately silence which becomes their rank and their intelligence, all went well, but when the  budget- came they stepped ofl their  perches. They have been scolding  like omnibus drivers purely because  the budget cart knocked a' little gilt  ofl their old state coaches.",  "The working classes are demanding better homes, too; they are not  satisfied with the dull gray street of  the past. They don't claim palaces,  but they are tired of walls and bottles. They are not satisfied with  promises that the housing problem  will be settled for them on the other  side of the valley, because they have  observed that some of the people who  insist on that, are also the people  who choose the best sides on this  side of the valley. The working people are asking for more air, more  light, more verdure, more sunshine,  to recruit their energies exhausted in  toil.   They will get it."  Then, in the passage which sends  the Socialists into transports of delight, the Chancellor, of the exchequer declared: "What better use can  you make bf wealth than to use it  for the purpose of picking up the  broken, healing the wounded, curing  .the sick, bringing a little more light,  comfort, happiness to .the aged?  These men ought to feel honored that  Providence has given them a chance  to put a little into, the poor box.  Since they will not do it themselves  we have to do it for them. Who  made 10,000 people owners of the soil  and the rest of us trespassers in the  land of our birth?"  THE LIVE MAN'S PLEDGE  The following citizens' pledge has  been printed on cards and circulated  by the horticultural and town improvement society of a well-known  Ontario town. Who will now say  those old Ontario towns are dead :  I promise-  To keep my sidewalk clean.  To keep the gutter in front of my  premises free from weeds.  Not to throw fruit skins or papers  in the streets.  To keep the weeds cut down on my  premises.   '  To keep my back yard neat and  clean.  Not to walk across other people's  lawn or parking.  To do all in my power to keep the  town looking neat and clean.  To do all in my power to help  others to keep this pledge.  THE LAND OF PROMISE  The members of the British Association, who have just returned to  Winnipeg after their tour of Western  Canada, have brought back with  them, our correspondent tells us, a  whole-hearted appreciation ol the  boundless resources and the wonderful and varied beauties of the country through which they have passed.  "Canada has gained in us,"said one  of them", "many, new missionaries,"  and all concurred in speaking in  terms of warm enthusiasm, not only  of the amazing progress of the Dominion, but ofuts magnificent prospects. It is literally a "Land ol  Promise and Plenty," having within  it all the potentialities of "a nation  self-contained."���������������������������Standard of Empire  _  VERY CONSIDERATE  IS THE WEST BECOMING AMERICANIZED ?

His answer was, 'Wa'l, we weren't too sure  how this King deal, would play out  when we first came up here, but we  were kept so busy taking ofl 34 bushels to the acre, getting 73 cents for  every bushel of it at the door, that  we come to think King Edward was  not a bad sort of landlord after all.  I asked another settler, living at  Claresholme, in Alberta, how the  Canadian laws suited him. 'Pretty  d��������������������������� well,' he said, without elegance  or hesitation. He left his plow (a  ten-furrow affair, worked by steam)  and, leaning up against a fence, told  me this: 'I was down near the boundary line last year with a bunch of  horses, when a mounted policeman  came along, all alone, in chase of a  half-breed horse thief. He sort of expected to find him in a breed camp  a bit ofl, and I went with him to Bee  just how them red-coats would, make  a pinch. The fellow got off his horse,  walked into camp where there were  about twelve ��������������������������� or thirteen ugly-looking chaps sitting round, and says  red-coat: Here, you come along with  me, settling his hand quite polite-  like on a chap's shoulder. There was  a fellow grabbed his Winchester; another a Colt's; another let a yell out  of him, but the red-coat jest said:  Look here, you fellows, sit down  quick, for I'm going to take this  man with me.   He did.'

It is Cut and   Crosscut   .Villi Canals Over Which are Many  Bridges.  Osaka, thc wealthy ancient city,  centre of Japan's commerce, whose  foreign import and oxport trade  represents no less than iji_U0,(JUu ���������������������������  a your and iLs inland an<i coasting  trado an immense amount, lost tremendously as a result of thc firo  which cables say destroyed four  square miles of tlie city. Of thc 13,-  000 buildings reported destroyed  many will be doubtless mud and  bamboo, a few mats and shojis probably worth scarce a couplo of hundred dollars; but Osaka also contains a great number of modern  buildings of Western style, as well  as castles, temples, bridges and historic structures, storehouses containing valuable merchandise- and  godowns with treasures of art, and  the loss will run into the millions.  The city lies on the banks of the  Yodogawa, thc river draining Lake  Biwa, and is more than 2,500 years  old, one of tho most ancient of Japan's ancient cities. Its great castle, one of tho most striking of tho  city's structures, built by Hidoyc-  shi as his seat of government in  15S3, is the strongest of all Japan's  castles and was tno scene of many  stirring events, not tho least of  which was thc memorable siege by  the Shogun lyeyasu at the close of  the great Osaka campaign of 1G15.  the city is built on cither bank of  the wide river and on Naka-no-shi-  ma, the island in the centre of tho  stream.  OSAKA MAKES MERRY.  Canals cut and crosscut the city  until tho visitor is reminded more  oi Holland than Japan. Threo  great bridges cros3 tho river, the  Temma-bashi, Tonjin-bashi and  Na'niwa-bashi. The principal thoroughfare is the Shinsai-bashi-suji,  with its fine shops, theatres and  bustling aspect; it is one of the  most interesting streets nob only  of Osaka but of Japan. In summer  it is full of color, vari-colorcd curtains being stretched across to  shade the shopkeepers from the sun,  and .-with tho bright hues of the ultramarine shop blinds with their  big glaring white signs, tho gay colors of the clothing of the pedestrians aud the crush of ricksha coolies, etc-, there is a warmth of color  that is strikingly Oriental.  The general aspect of. tho city seen  from a distance is that of a factory  city. Since 1800 mill after mill has-  Joflowcd in quick succession and  there was a forest of factory chimneys when thc writer was last in  Osaka. Centuries before Europe  knew of Japan Osaka was thc great  huancial aud commercial centre of  the empire, and it is that still.  Through all the feudal era- the merchants' of Osaka. despised_ though  they were by thc samurai, were  tlie" bankers and creditors of the  Japanese princes, and it v/as they  .���������������������������_vh_o_gav_ thy/Jaim. ys gnl J and silver for their tribute ot rice, and_itr  the fireproof godowns of Osaka v/as  kept the national store of rice, cotton and silk and tho great captains  scoured thc money for their wars  frum the despised merchants of  Osaka.

Anythiug more in the  shapo of a street vista than the  view looking down one of these  waterways can scarcely be found in  Japan. Still ,as a- mirror surface,  tho canal flows between high stone  embankments supporting the houses  ���������������������������-houses of two or threo stories, all  sparred out from thc stone work so  that their facades bodily overhang  tho water. They are huddled together in a way suggesting pressure  from behind, and this appearance  of squeezing and crowding is  strengthened by thc absence of regularity in design, no house being  exactly like another, but au having an indefinable far Eastern  quccrncss, a sort of racial character. They push out queer little galleries with balustrades, glassloss  windows with elfish balconies under  them and rooflot3 over them like  eyebrows; tiers of tiled and tilted  waning.1., and great caves which, in  certain hours, throw shadows down  io tho foundation. As-most of the  timber work is dark, either .with  age or staining, the shadows look  deeper than they really are. It is  a picture for an artist, tnis ?.cerie  from a bridge across ono of Osaka's canals, with the cargo boats  and boats yolocd by peasants with  straw hat and straw coat, like peasants of long forgotten picture  books.  IT IS A CITY OF BRIDGES.  No other Japanese city lias.so  many. Wards are named after  bridges, distances marked by them.  There are 189 principal ones and  goodness knows how many losses  ones.- According'to ancient custom,  the various trades and industries  congregate on particular streets,  each trade to its street; even the  theatres have their street and thc  fortune tellers theirs. Tho. central  part of the city has many line buildings. The city hall is a. classical  Western structure with granite columns, and the post office, mint, arsenal, steamship offices���������������������������particularly the line stone structure of the  Osaka Shosen kaisha���������������������������mills brew-  erics, etc., are all housed in. solid  buildings of Western architecture-  The foreign concession, dating from  prior to the civil war, when the  foreigners fled to Kobe to i-ake protection under the guns of the warships, thero, is also thick with  Western styled buildings now occupied by Japanese, for the foreign  settlement was moved to Kobe many  years ago. Thero arc many big  newspaper plants, tho Osaka Maini-  chi and Osaka Asahi being the most  influential of all Japanese newspapers and having far greater circulation than the Tokio papers.  Of thc structures of destroyed  Osaka the great castle is tho most  interesting of all. It is built of  stone, with bulwarks and battlements, crenelated skyline, with  loopholes for the old time musketeers aud bowmen with their arrows, passages from which fighting  men hurled stones upon their assailants, with walls yards in thickness  and a great parapet and moat,  with bridges and great gates. Out-  side.-thc, m,esent_.fortr_crvs__thcro__was.  grown stono flags of the quadrangular court surrounded by an open,  cloister, the Buddhist school and  iris lined pond with its tortoises,  tho statues, stone lanterns, lions  and enormous temple drum where  athletic young bonzes beat rhythmic rolls���������������������������all seem as from a past  ago, with only the booths for the  sale of toys and oddities, the resting places where thc musmus sell  tea, cake and thc ever-present  "Beor-u" of the present.  INVESTS NEW AIRSHIP.  Danzig Engineer Uses Boards, Not  .   Metal.  An interesting development in  tho building of air cruisers is announced fiorn Danzig, Germany.  An eminent engineer of that city,  Professor Schutte, has constructed the model of a new wooden airship which promises such successful .results that the great engineering firm of Lanz, in Mannheim,  have taken the matter up and  agreed to have tho airship built  some time in autumn.  Professor Schuttc. s ship, like  Count Zeppelin's, will be rigid. Tho  motor power-s\ .11 probably bo GOO  h.p., which may result in a speed of  33'miles an hour.  The body of the cruiser will consist of light boards placed diagonally over one another. Thc interior will be of goldbeater's skin,  lightness and i mpcrviousuoss thus  both being secured. The absence  of metal in largo masses from the  tody of the balloon may obviate  such catastrophes as happened to  Count Zeppelin at Echferdingcn,  where the electricity in the air undoubtedly played a Large part.  Another advantage of a wooden  over a metal body is that the former may be more readily supplied  with wireless telegraphy.  Tho hall to hold this ship has already been begun.-' It will be 135  yards long and 60 broad.  Sicmeu's electrical works at  Nurnberg are also actively engag-  co in building a gigantic flexible  airship with a length of 125 yards  and a- diameter of 13, with 39,000  feet of gas. It will have three cars  suspended from the balloon on an  entirely now system.. Four Daimler motors, each of 125 h.p., will  drive it. This balloon will only be  slightly smaller than Zeppelin's,  and if successful will revive the  controversy regarding the respective merits of the rigid and the flexible systems.  Till. CHEAT LINERS  and big freighters which draw too  much water to go now to Osaka  across thc: bay will be attracted  there when facilities arc provided.  Coasters come now in fleets, for  Osaka is the greatest cntcrport of  Japan's commerce, and the junks  come in great flotillas until their  masts  look  like forests.  The street song of tho Osaka coolie says: "Every day to Osaka  come a thousand ships."  An idea of tho commercial importance of the city is obtained  when it is stated that there aro  more than '100 guilds in Osaka. Tho  cotton mills load steamships for  ���������������������������Uic millions of India. Most of its  streets are narrow, although thero  are some wide thoroughfares. There  arc streets of three story houses  and streets of two story houses,  but there are square miles of houses one story high, flimsy places of  mud, wattlo and bamboo, with  paper sides and mat floors. The  great mass of the city is an agglomeration of low wooden buildings  with tiled roofs. All the streets  are interesting, brighter, qainter  than Tokio, and tho city a.s a whole  in more picturesque-  formerly a second wall and para  pet and deep, wide moat, but this  wall has been razed and thc moat  filled. Tho destruction of this was  made a condition of peace when the  Shogun lyeyasu captured thc castle  after thc scigo which closed tho  great Osaka campaign in 1G15.  Thero was a great palace, built by  Hideyoshi within tho castle, but  during tho civil war which preceded the restoration of tho present  Emperor in 18GS tho buildings with-'  in thc castle were set on fire by a  train laid by tho samurai of the  Tokugawa Shogun before their fmel  retreat and wero completely destroyed within a few hours, only  some of tho small turrets on tho  walls remaining. Tho castle now  serves as tho headquarters of thc  Osaka garrison.  THE TEMPLES OF OSAKA  wero famous iu Jap_n, particularly  thc Tonneji, which occupies a vast  extent of ground in tho southeast  section of the city. It was founded GOO A.D. and has fallen into decay many times and been renovated at the expense of thc ruler. The  sensation received on passing from  the bright, narrow, busy streets of  shops to the mouldering courts of  the Tonneji is indescribable. Thc  builders and renovators have always followed tho ancient plan,  and thc suggestion is of long gone  centuries. Tho neutral tones of  the old timbers, tho fading spectral  grays and yellows of the wall surfaces, eccentricities of disjointing  and extraordinary carvings under  the eves, of waves and clouds and  demons, once splendid with lacquer  and gold, now time whitened and  smoke-tinted, indicate the age and  decay.

The grave problem presented by  a dccling birth rate is again distressing Franco, which is particularly engaged at this moment in  weighing the merits claimed for a  plan proposed by Prof. Charles  Richot, of the Academy of Medicine  and M.. Leroy-Bea-ulieu. The scheme  proposes a system of bonuses for  children, the bonus growing as tho  number of children iu one family  grows; that is, while the parents  =ge _="_ o thin g=_ n-=co n s id o r a tie _=o f=  the first child, they get 500f. for  tho second, 1,000 for the third, and  sc on.  Prof. Richct believes that births  will bo increased annually by 750,-  0000 or 1,000,000 a. the cost to the  State of 30,000,000f. yearly. This  expenditure is to be met by death  duties. They plan laying a tax of  50 per cent, on all .collateral, bequests and confiscating half tho estate in case there is only one child.  M. Lcroy-Beaulieu further would  reduce thc salaries of unmarried  employes of the Sfcato as well as  of those with only one child, or  with nono five years after marriage-  Naturally the proposition has  aroused warm opposition. It is  asked whether the class which  would be reached by such an offer  is one worthy to bo the parents of  future- generations. There arc not  lacking thoso who affirm that tho  prosperity of France rests on thc  principle of the small family, and  who foresee revolution, chaos and  national poverty if large families  become general.   #   BULL FRIGHTENED TO DEATH  A curious story of a bull's death  from heart failure comes from Australia. Mr. Frank Norman was  walking on the footpath on High  street, Korort, while- some cattle  were being driven along the street.  Suddenly a bull broke' away from  the others and rushed at him. There  being no means of escape, Mr. Norman opened his umbrella in the animal s face, and it at once fell dead,  Mr. Norman being unhurt. It is  supposed that the sudden appearance of the umbrella before the ani-  ADVENTURE WITH A LION  A TERRIFYING EXPERIENCE IN  AFRICA.  Mr.  Harry    Williams,  the    Well-  Known Explorer, Nearly Lost  His Life.  A thrilling account of an adventure which Mr. Harry Williams, tho  ���������������������������well-known explorer, had ou tho  coast of Africa with a lion is graphically told in a letter which hc  wrotofrom Nairobi. The pages  of fiction hardly contain its equal.  "Mr. Sclous and I had joined Mr.  AlacMilliau," says Mr. Williams,  "but on Juno 8 I was out alone,  having only my two gun-bearers  \vith me, whon I saw a lion on thc  right, about 300 yards away. Ho  v/as prowling along, and apparently did not notice mc, but I could  see by thc swash of his tail that hc  was an angry beast. I put up my  hand as a signal to my head gun-  bearer to come up with a- spare  rifle, and together we worked closer and closer to the lion. The beast  seemed to havo no intention of  stopping, so I struck one hand on  the back of the oohcr.  WOUNDED IN THE FLANK-  "Thc lion stopped and faced me,  probably revolving tho question of  attack, whilst I,, for my-part, cogitated as to whether I should shoot  or endeavor to get a bit closer. Tho  lion seemed to decide upon retreat,  for he turned suddenly and trotted  away. I fired both barrels of my  ���������������������������j.50 at him, one shot reaching him  in the flank. It was.only a slight  flesh wound, but it paralyzed him  for the moment, and he sat down  on his haunches like a dog. After  a few minutes hc got up and. went  into a bit of open bush.  CAME AT TERRIFYING PACE  "Not knowing what state the  brute might be in, I'made for a big  open patch on my left front, hoping  to get a better sight of him. The  lion, however, had been watching  mc -from his retreat, and at 2ou  yards distance he sprang out of-the  bush and came straight for mo at  a terrifying pace. I waited until  he was within GO yards, and then  let him have both barrels. One shot  missed him, but the other lodged  in the fleshy part of his shoulder.  The only effect was to infuriate  him more than- ever, and I now  thought myself a dead man, for  thero was no time to reload, and  the gun-bearer was not actually in  reach with the other rifle. I turned  and made for a bush on my right  rear, hoping tho beast would rush  past me and give me time to reload; but it.was hopeless, and turning sharply round, I stood my  ground.  IN THE LION'S JAWS.  "It was a terrifying sight ���������������������������the  brute's jaws already open to seize  mc by the left shoulder and breast  ���������������������������but with the courage born of.despair I raised my rifle in both hands  and struck him across tho side of  the head- Almost simultaneously  4i e-d u ck ed.=a n d=_s ciz cd __nie _.b j__ the.  right leg, shaking me from side to  side as though I had been a rat.  There is no need to describe what  I felt at this moment. Suffice it to  say that my gun-bearer���������������������������the pluckiest creature, black or white, thai; J.  have ever read of.���������������������������came up whilst  the lion was actually mauling mc,  shoved the riflo he carried down  to mo and asked mo how to turn  the safety" catch". I had" sufficient  presence of mind to bo able to explain in a second, and the gun-  bearer fired. Tho lion left me and  rushed into a bush five yards away,  giving rne timo to put two cartridges in my rifle wJiilst still on thc  ground.  "liaising myself to fire, I saw  that the lion was in the act of  springing. I fired off both barrels  from my hip at his head, the "boy"  firing at thc same time, and the  brute rolled over dead. I fell back  again, and for a few moments half  swooned, for I had lost a lot of  blood; but as soon as tho second  gun-bearer had come up (no gun  with him), I sent him off to find  camp, and bring back some men  to carry mo in. With some dressing which I had in my cartridge  bag I tried to stanch the bleeding,  but could do very little in this way.  The muscles were torn open, an artery had burst, and the wounds  were everywhere so deep. For an  hour I lay there, and then half the  camp turned up, and I was carried  in on a bed. I shall never forget  the agony of that journey. ��������������������������� \ On  reaching camp Mr. Scions and Mr.  MacMillian dressed the wounds as  well as they could, but thai, night  my temperature was over 105.  BLOOD WAS DRAINING AWAY.  "On the   afternoon of the next  man���������������������������Judd���������������������������in chargo of me, and,,  after three days' travel by hand  porterage, I got to Lindrane, on the  railway, and arrived at Nairobi on  the 14th. My leg seemed to bo  bursting all the time, and the blood  was draining away. I would havo  given anything for some morphia.  On being brought into hospital,  howevor, I experienced all the caso  and comfort which a first-class doctor and skilful nursing were ablo  to afford."  THE BANK OF ENGLAND.  Treasure Vaults as Near Impregnable as Possible.  The question as to whether the  treasure vaults of thc Bank of England a-ro strong enough to resist  explosives dropped upon them from  airships, which M-as raised by a  shareholder at a recent meeting,  is an interesting one in view of tho  fact that bullion worth ;.-10,000,000  is kept there.  And tho bullion, of course, constitutes only a portion of the wealth  ot the Old Lady of Threadneodlo  Street. Jewels, plate, and similar  costly articles to tho aggregate  value of considerably over J5J00,-  000,000 are regularly'stored for tho  convenience of customers.

Putting asido  altogether thc hypothetical danger  from future airships, to which ho  drew attention, hc points out that  tube railways .have been constructed in close proximity t-o whera  some, at all events, of the subterranean strong-rooms aro supposed  to he situated. The inference, is  obvious.  Against this, however, must bo  placed the undoubted fact that to!  tunnel into .one of them would bo  a very big job indeed for anybody  to tackle.

'    Dc Wet, Boer Leader���������������������������Rejoiced in  Spread of Education.  In Europe it is generally held  that men from the rural parts of  the country make the best soldiers  and that the townsmen, who arc  better educated but havo also a  clearer perception of the dangers  and discomfort, of .war, _re much  more ready to throw up tho sponge  when in their opinion there is no  use in continuing the fight. The  famous Boer guerilla leader, Christian de Wet, thinks differently, and  iu a speech he made to some Soutn  African students the other day he  gave very striking evidence in favor of educated soldiers. He- said  that he himself had no school learning because he had never had the  chance, but that during the' three  years of the war he had gone  through a process of education. He  found that the bravest and most  trustworthy soldiers were those who  had received a good education. At  *> the end of the war eighty per cent,  ���������������������������o' those who still remained under  arms on the Boer side were men  of learning. Nearly all the men of  the back veldt had abandoned the  struggle and gone home. That,  eaid De Wet, was his experience,  and therefore he rejoiced in the  spread of education in the Transvaal.

In 1896 there was no Canadian  Northern Railroad; to-day there  ate 7,000 mileo of it in operation,  under construction or surveyed. At  the present rapid rate of extension  it will in a few years form a continuous streak of steel from ocoan  lo ocean, making tho third transcontinental highway in Canada.  Tho Canadian Northern is uniquo  among railroads, says 'Hampton's  Magazine, in that its shares arc  not sattered among a largo number  of holders, but are owned and controlled by two men, William Mackenzie and Donald D. Mann, two  of the most interesting characters  Canada has yet produced.  Mackenzie's early experiences  embrace school teaching, operating  a sawmill and running a country  store in Kirkfield, Ont. Ho is  known as a financial wizard. His  ability to secure capital to float his  enterprises is one of his chief characteristics. He slips over to England every now and then so quietly  that he is back almost before any  one is aware of his departure ���������������������������  and he 'brings with him the cash  needed for new railway extensions  or big enterprises of some kind. \  He is a genius for selling bonds,  for getting the majority of them  guaranteed by the Canadian Government. It matters not whether  times" are prosperous. Ho can borrow millions where others would  find it difficult to negotiate tho  loan of a postage s+amp. His business interests are extensive and  he is said to have rejuvenated more  lopsided, tottering enterprises than  any other Canadian. .  NOT REALLY NECESSARY.

IE TEE OCEAN EVAPORATED.  Salt   Left   Would   Cover   Entire  Globe 200 Feet Deep.  Sea water contains about 3% per  cent, of sodium chloride and other  salts. Time evaporation of all the  oceans would leave a mass of salt  sufficient to cover the entire globe  to the depth of 200 feet, and equal  to the bulk, above sea level, of  North and South America, of one-  fourth that of tho whole earth.  The theory that this enormous  quantity of salt has been dissolved  from continental rocks and carried  down to the sea by strcamB is not  tenable, because the salts found in  solution in river water contain 80  per cent, of carbonate of lime and  only 7 per cent, of chlorides, while  common salt, or sodium chloride,  constitutes 89 per cent, of the Eaits  of sea water. Moreover, the evaporation of inland seas which has  itaken place in Central Asia has  loft saline deposits very different  in composition from the salts of tho  ocean.  It appears, therefore, that salinity must be regarded as an original  property of the ocean.  YOUR SUMMER  OUTING.

Dear Sir: Referring to the para-  : graph which appeared in your last  J issue about small boys running thc  ' streets with guns, the following may  : interest your readers: A day or two  1 ago I was on thc hill to thc west of  j town, just above Mr. SutclifTe's home  I when a bullet came whizzing over my  !head, and thc next instant I heard  jthc report of a gun, apparently fired  ; at some considerable distance. Where  j the bullet struck I do not know; pre-  I sumably it fell to earth -without  | harming anyone, as I have not heard-  i of any casualty, but there is no  j thanks due the shooter for that; he  evidently did not care what might be  of the Okanagan and Similkameen  districts, as well as open up the rich  mining region of the west fork where  a dozen mines await transportation  facilities to become steady shippers.  With the existing line the system  will have a total mileage of 350  miles. The Dominion government has  already voted it a subsidy of ?G,400  a mile for a distance of 250 miles.  j The aid proposed to be granted by  the Provincial government only relates to that portion of the line between Penticton and Nicola, a distance of 150 miles. The company will  also extend its branch up the north  fork of the Kettle river from railhead  at Lynch creek to thc Franklin  camp. This branch will ultimately  be extended westward via Fire Valley  to Vernon.  -"_  r,   fi=*ft _>  ���������������������������__>__.

REEVES  Druggist & Stationer  Cliff Street  Enderby  the result of his unloosing the death  dealing missile.  And this is only one instance out  of many. Some of our laws and bylaws of the community, made for mutual protection and convenience, are  constantly and openly being violated.  Law is the partnership agreement  by which people are enabled to live  together in communities. Conscious  infraction of law deteriorates character. A community which is lax in  its observance of law shows either an  inability to perceive, or else a wanton disregard of, the principles governing human progress. Such a community cannot advance in the science  of living and in that refinement of  spirit which alone gives value to life.  It is a grim comment on our boasted  civilization that even to-day, after  all the efforts of legislators, reformers and educators, we still have to  enforce by the strong arm those reasonable laws and regulations which  our experience as a race has shown  to be necessary for our welfare���������������������������laws  which it ought to be the pride and  pleasure of every citizen to observe  of his own free will and accord.  Government of self, by self, for self  and for humanity, is the only condition of life which is worth while.  Yours  faithfully, CITIZEN.

C.  .A Victoria   dispatch   in    the Vancouver   Province    says: "Under    the  terms of the   agreement between the  Provincial government and  the Kettle Valley railway, providing for the  payment  of a subsidy  of ?5,000  per  mile for 150 miles, construction work  will be started   next    spring at four  different   points.   The    line will link  the Boundary district with the Fraser Valley as well as tap the Okanagan Valley and Similkameen districts  When completed, this new line will  reduce  the  time    between  Vancouver  and Penticton    to   eight hours; Midway, 12 hours, and Nelson 18 hours.  Railway    men    conversant   with  the  plans,  say that a line following the  water grade of the Kettle river will  be built from Curlew,  Wash., on the  Grand Forks-Republic portion of the  Kettle Valley system,  to midway in  the Boundary district.     From    Midway the railway will ascend the west  fork of   the   Kettle   river and cross  the summit to Penticton, at the foot  of   Okanagan    lake.   From there the  road will  run to    a connection with  the C.P.R. at Nicola, the route being  by^way_ofJDspi:ey_Uake,=Aspcn^Gr-ov-e-,-  Otter Creek and Coldwater River.    A  branch -five miles    long will be built  into Princeton.   From the Coldwater  summit a branch will be built across  the Hope    mountains    and down the  Coquahalla river to navigable water  on the Fraser   where connection can  be made with thc C.P.R., C.N.R.  or  G.T.P.
