Array *fc  0  Enderby, B. C,  March 2, 1911  AND       WALKER'S       WEEKLY  Vol. 4; No. 1; Whole No. 15. ���������������������������'  Enderby Bachelors Set the Pace  for a Higher Standard of Dances  The Bachelors' Club- of Enderby | white linen, and loaded with'sand-  ,promised their guests a surprise, atjwiches, salads, cakes, etc., and the  the masquerade dance given by the most delicious coffee served. It was  Club in K4 of P. Hall last Friday all done, so quietly and quickly that  evening, and they "made good." It the^merry dancers were seated at the'  was a very great surprise, and a very tables and eating in ten minutes. In  pleasant one���������������������������in fact, the whole affair  55 minutes from the conclusion of the  ���������������������������   was one straight   series of surprises,  and from   the   Grand   March to the  Home Waltz    the   merry dancers en-  ���������������������������v joyed seven   hours    of   the   greatest  pleasure.  The _ whole   affair   was so well handled, and in such complete harmony,"  ,that there was not a moment of drag  nor, a" single, incident    to. mar the  pleasure  of their guests.   And,  what  is very unusual,   it was noticed that (  the hall'was almost as crowded with  dancers  when   the   .tfonie waltz was  -.played as "when    the-merry maskers  -joined hands for the grand march. '  '-.   The" first -surprise    came when the  '--regular   hall    lights were turned  off  " -��������������������������� and".'* the .-special-' lights 'installed by  -   "Electrician 'Moffet" for .the"Club, were  J    turned on.  .There were more-than 100:  :.of them, and-the various "colors were  *-<>sartistically entwined in the-overhead  ���������������������������'and, wair-decorations   of. evergreens  " 'and^-bunting.' -Two hundred and-fifty:  wyards  of    bunting . _were used in the  deco'rations,  and -_ every . electric .wire  was-hidden--by cedar boughs.     Upon  the stage,    the   orchestra, were comfortably -��������������������������� seated    behind boxed trees  supper dance the tables had been laid,  the 140 guests fed,' and the tables  cleared away again, and.music for  the next waltz struck up. There was  no rush, no hurry, no confusion���������������������������and  yet they do.tell us these.bach fellows  can't keep house ! ' -  Following is a list of.those, in costume, for which we' are indebted to  Mr. G. G.

The '.'Old Maid's Convention'' is the  title of the comedy, and local talent  composed -the cast. There were roars  of laughter, from start to finish; the  "get up" of the Old Maids was in  every,, case clever and the acting of  the different characters, coupled with  the ludicrous'situations and climaxes  afforded "amusement for all.  - And thus the "convention" continued until one old maid told a lie  about her age and busted the machine.       , ' ' .<'''���������������������������'  The   local   hits    were  particularly''  pleasing to the audience. t <  ... -  It is the intention of the ladies to  give a performance of the "Old Maids  Convention" at Salmon Arm "at an  early date.

The .costuming   on    this   occasion,  while not extravagant or grandiose,  was of a clnss   that showed quality,  dignity   nnd    grace.        Particularly  pretty were thc costumes of the lady  maskers;   some    of    them, especially, Turkish   Brigand;  that of   Mrs.    Sutcliffe   and that of  Rough Rider.  L.

The rriusic was furnished by the  Armstrong orchestra, and was of a  high class, the dancers enjoying to  the limit the liberal selections given  as encores.  A pleasing feature, and one not  lost sight of by the guests, was the  neat costume worn by the Hall Committee, each being decked in simple  white, knee pants, shirt, black slippers, sash and tie. And these committeemen lost no opportunity to  give all a good time.  The supper was served by these  nattily attired committeemen. And  here is how they did it: Promptly  at the conclusion of the supper dance  long tables were improvised in the  centre of the room, spread with snow  Mrs. A. L.

The following are the gentlemen to  whom those present are indebted for  the splendid evening's pleasure, they  being the members of the Enderby  Bachelors' Club: Messrs. George  Schmidt, J. Chalmers, P. Miller, W.  S. Poison, T. C. Poison, T. S. Pringle, H. Baxter, A. V. Evans, H. D.  Krebs, F. V. Moffet, M. A. Stevens,  F. R. Prince, N. Currie, H. A'. Fran-  Rev. B. S.

George, of  Mara, died at the Veroon hospital,  Feb. 25th, 1911, aged 25 years. The  news of the death of Air. George  came as a shock to their many friends  of Enderby district, although the end  was foreshadowed last week. The  sympathy of the community is extended to the parents and sister who  feel most deeply their great loss.  It is apparent that Mayor Ruttan  and the Aldermen are not going to  permit the public work of the city  to be held back this season for the  want of material. Teams were set  to work on Wednesday hauling sand  and gravel for thc cement sidewalks  to be built as soon as the warm  weather opens. It is impossible to  get sand from the river bed when the  spring freshets start, and it can now  be hauled much cheaper with the  snow on the ground.  as soon  receive an equal .amount <fram the���������������������������/*  Mabel Lake Valley way. - /\\'./���������������������������.  This means the clearing vup'of a"-  great deal of land, and,the turning-^  into money" for the farmer, trees'" from���������������������������,"''.  his land which would be worthless as ������������������������������������������������������  jsawlogs and could   bring no revenue. ^  Mr. Geo.  Bell   this' week purchased./,  two acres of Mr. Geo." R. Lawes' val-V.  liable home* property at the head of ',  Cliff street.   Mr. Bell takes the property on which   the ,old home" stands  and runs   back   400 . feet   from   the  street,    and ��������������������������� as    far    south    as ��������������������������� the  ���������������������������  Stevens'  property line.     This is the   .  most=valuable^ome^siglitJn=Enderby=^==  and we   understand   it is 'Mr.   Bell's  intention to erect a handsome home  thereon.      Mr. Lawes will build far-^  ther up the hill.

NAMES AND EPONYMS  THERE is a story to the eil'ect that  Brougham, on being chaffed by thc  Iron Duke, as a man whose name  would go down to posterity as a great  lawyer and statesman, but -who would  be best known by tlie name of thc carriage that had "been christened after  him, retorted that the Duke's name  would no doubt be handed down lo future generations as that of a great general, but that he would be best remembered by reason of a particular kind  of boot'named after him. This little  story serves to illustrate tlie fact that  mauv names, illustrious and otherwise,  are saved from obliviou by comparative-  Iv trivial circumstances.  " It is probable, for instance, that sailors will'never let die Admiral Vernon's  nickname   "Old   Grog,"   derived   from  his  breeches, which "were of grogram,  but applied to the rum that the Admiral  ordered to be served out to them.  The name of another drink���������������������������negus���������������������������  has survived from tlie time of Queen  Anne, when it was tho favorite beverage of one Colonel Negus. _   -  More common, however, than either  of tho above, is tho name "sandwich,"  which commemorates the Lord Sandwich  who invented it as a means of taking  a hasty lunch while engaged in his duties at the Admiralty,  Certain towns and districts, such as  Xeres, Oporto, Champagne, and Burgun-  ry, arc probably best known through the  productions named after thorn,  "i-Cayenne is probably better known  outside France for' the red pepper it  "produces than for being the locality to  which l''rencirconvicts are transported;  while the town of Cognac, in France,  owes its celebrity solely to the brandy  distilled from its" grapes.  Cologne is, perhaps, more famous for  its manufacture of eau do cologne than  for its splendid cathedral. Spa, in .Belgium, has provided acommon name, applicable to most; inland watering-places,  while Guiugamp, a small town in Brii  tany, is totally unknown to the larg.  number of people who used the materia'  named after it���������������������������giiurnam.  -7 E were waiting for the elevator to  v*' come down," said a commercial  traveller, "after discussing the  probability of an aeroplane's crossing  the Atlantic within a year, when, just  as the cage was about to ascend one of  ���������������������������he party said, 'I'll bet ten thousand  dollars it won't be done���������������������������and the elevator bov took him up."  * *    *    *  IX a great deal of trepidation a diffident young man called at the oflice  of  the   father  of  the  girl  he  was  smitten with, and stammered:  "Sir,   L���������������������������1���������������������������pardon   me,  but   I.  want  to marry your daughter."  "I'm* busy;  go and  see hor  mother,  young man," said the father.  "f have already seen her mother, and  T still wish to marry your daughter."

JS'ow, sir,  kindly tell us  what you did on that occasion."  The witness hesitated and looked confused. Everyone expected that he was  about to confess to some shocking act  of cruelty. But their hopes were shattered when he finally blurted out:  . "I sneezed."  I)1  A  MODERATELY   fond   father   discovered  his young hopeful reading a dime novel.  "Unhand me, villain!" the detected  boy thundered; "or there will be bloodshed!" .   ,  "No," said the father grimly, tightening his hold on his son's collar.

I often wish he had  something to do. He moons about in  the garden, and I have seen him stand  doing nothing before a flower for ten  minutes at a time.

In an . offhand" ���������������������������manner  he asked whether there was a Democrat iu the room. When no one responded to the question Mr. Kinds  remarked that it was; 110 "disgrace for  a man to be an honest Democrat, adding that if there was one in thc room  he would like to have him shew his  colors.

The picture itself became part  of tlie altar-piece of the Roman Catholic  Church in Lothian Street, Edinburgh.  During thc seventies the Catholic community moved to a new church. The  canvas of the altar-piece was rolled up  aud left lying in the schools, where it  was eventually forgotten. When thickly  encrusted with dirt, the whole thing was  sold for a trifle to a broker, who thought  so little of his prize that for a time he  used it as a tarpaulin, covering an cut-  uouse with it.

The   reason   for   this  vast ditli'ivin-e is obvious.    The  racing  oi thoroughbreds is confined to narrow  bounds.    It  is limited to a very small  number of tracks compared with those  where harness horse racing exists, and  while it is popular with the people it is  a   sport   that  has  been  badly handled,  .lust as  it  is enjoyable  to watch   field  sports of.all  kinds,  so  it  is  to watch  horses race.    It is only the conditions  that surround the sport of horse racing  that keep the general  public from  becoming interested. Those conditions can.  and will, be removed iu time, but it will  take time to bring about the change.  1'rom a commercial standpoint there  is no reason why young thoroughbreds  should not bring as much at auction as  young standard-breds. The one is as  useful as the other. The average thoroughbred is as heavy as the average  standard-bred. He equals the latter in  conformation, and  is gonerally as use-  Tho Best Liver Pill.���������������������������The action of  the liver is easily disarranged.

OR Old Crutcher perseverance was  neither a virtue nor euphemism j  it was a mania, barren of praise  aud productive of scofling. In the beginning he had minded the jibes; by  the time ho was sixty-five he had been  long inured, even feeling grateful for  them in a way. Por he was an inventor, and can ono who fashions things  qHite new escape obloquy'f Is uot slander, indeed, the tribute of tho vulgarians to ability? The admission of genius? Tho truest, albeit unconsciously  rendered, honor to be expected?  "Some day " ho would multer to  himself, philosophically if vaguely,  when he had gained his littlo room after  running the gauntlet of gamins.  "Somo  day " ,  ,v He had been comforting himself with  those words, pregnant with future recompense, for a score of years now.  The childron who had followed him m  the first days of his labor, babbling  ridieule. after the fashion of babes m  the street, had begot auothcr generation, that chided hiin now with more  vehemence for the instinct that was  tkeir heritage. Only to-childrcn is such  a game ever fresh..  For two decades harried by doubters,  Wis own faith in himself had thrived  and flourished the lustier because of his  lack of someone with whom to share it.  Carefully he had nourished it from the  moment lie first becamo engrossed in.  his problem; with all the force of his  will had he preserved that faith through  dieappoiutment, till finally there was no  longer need for him to guard it; so  powerful had it grown that it overmastered tlie man, forcing him on in spite  of defeat, gripping aud swaying him as  can only a passion. There was no retreat for Crutcher now.  His mania was perpetual motion.  "An5 how's thc machine- to-day?"  asked the Irishwoman on the second  floor as Crutcher passed her open door,  the uneven boards creaking beneath his  steps. It was always the machine, and  not the man, that ' people asked ot.  Crutcher himself had forgotten tho mau.  "It's getting along, thank you," he  answered. "It's very slow work, you  know. 'But then, big' things can't be  done in a day."  Thc old man spoke glibly, because he  had  been  making  much  thc  same  an-  awer   through - many   years:   he   spoke  with a touch of gaiety, for he was ever  pleased to find cue who would talk ol  his   invention."    This   thc   Irishwoman  knew.--  Nevertheless,- her .charity, .was  limited to one question on wash day.   .  "-" "Sure, an' "I '11 bet tt ot 'a 'y 'r "dinner  , in   th'. bag,"   she   sai'\   reproachfully,  coing.to'tho door and pointing to.-his  small-.package   with   a   great,   sq'uaTc  '   hand, red-and puckered by hot water;  "Now-why   don't  you   take  care   oi  y'rsilf,''Misther  Crutcher?

"'''There,  thot's  good i'r- what  ails ye." -Take it!" she commanded.  Crutcher obeyed. He-carried the plate  - Tory ear-fully to the fourth lloor, spilling ouly a row drops, but, his room  gained, he set it'down nnd'forgot it m  contemplation of his machine.  ' ��������������������������� The room'was in front of a rear tenement, its one window giving out on a  vista which ended, twenty feet away,  '    with the, back of the house that front-  ed  the  street.    No other  outlook  had  -Crutcher;   in  that  room   he  lived  and  worked,   leaving   it -only   to   buy   his  meagre meals or, rarely, for a stroll Lo  the square near by.   As a rule, the persecution  of the  children spoiled these  .little cxcumons,_wluch to the inventor  had thc"iuTre"queney an-d-al^thc-impor^  anco  of holidays.    The room was not  quite   square.     Large   irregular   stains  were the sole decoration of the plastered walls save for a two-foot shelf, on  which were a bottle of oil, a book dealing  with  mechanics,  and  a  few  stray  'tools.   Almost opposite the door was a  small,  full-bellied   coal   stove���������������������������a  foygc  at well���������������������������its pipe running into the chimney behind it, which ate into the scanty  -space-of .the room._]n__the.corner farthest from the window was a cot, with  its soiled Hnon and a quilt whose grimy,  mottefl   cotton   showed   through   rents,  lving an they had been tossed by Crutch-  or that morning.  At the foot of thc cot  was a large soap box, standing on end  and furnished with shelves m the form  of a cupboard.   On its top stood a big  pitcher; a wash-basin was on the floor  beside it. Crutcher's dishes were strewn  in an irregular line along the mantelpiece invhack of the stove.    Straddled  over a sniall box, half filled with coals  and kindling wood, was a chair.   IJircct-  lv   under  the  window   was   Crutcher s  work table, plain and strong, battered  and grimed.   At one corner,was clamped  a vise; about it were strewn tools, nuts,  bolts,   odds   and   ends   of   accumulated  litter.  He unlocked the drawer of the table  even while he still held the bag. There,  on top of a mass of creased and soiled  Dapers and mechanic's refuse, was his  pride, his ambition, his hope���������������������������the machine.  It was elliptical, of steel, no longer  than four inches, bound at its circumference with a girdle of bright nickel.  It was studded with nickellcd screws  and from each end protruded a pole of  brass, tapering almost to a point. In  that creation of metal, shining,-sinister  looking as an engine of war, were  bound and riveted twenty years of John  Crutcher's life; a bauble, in looks the  toy of a child of Mars, it contained the  'imbitions of a human soul and the love  and passion of a man.  "My beauty!" Crutcher murmured.  Eternal movement, everlasting life,  embodied in a bit of transient metal���������������������������  Crutcher saw nothing ridiculous iu that.  Lt was well he did not, for man can do  better, even at the cost of sanity, than  co sec' the absurdity of his reason for  being.  Crutcher's idea was simple. His initial motive power was a spring���������������������������a tiny  coil for a mau of machines to lo-ve.  This acted on a propeller, sunk in -thc  bolt of nickel. The poles fitted two-cups  of steel, attached like the bowls of  opium pipes to a pair of upright rods.  Accurately adjusted, tho invention, once  started, would run forever���������������������������some day.  Crutcher had only to overcome tho troublesome friction.  "i-lerc is the germ!" said thc old  man, his voice low but quivering with  the ardor of exultation. "Only a little  move!" Jle put into place the upright  rods. Then he wouud the spring, arranged his invention, and started the  propeller. "Ah! That's it! Go it "  lie cried excitedly, as it whirled rapidly,  o-iviug lorth a shrill ��������������������������� hum, the bright  studs forming lines almost as solid as  the belt about the circumference. He  knew that, alone, the spring -would run  itself out iu twelve minutes. I ho inventor took out his watch. He tried to  suppress his enthusiasm. Now and then  he leaned-forward, his face aglow as  if he were the spectator of a race^ Go  it! Go it!" he cried softly again and  again.  Nino minutes passed, ten, twelve���������������������������  and still the machine whirled. By and  by it slowed, lurched around spasmodically for a bit, and then stopped, seemingly with reluctance. ������������������  "Twenty-two minutes and a nail!  Crutcher whispered in suppressed delight. "More by a- full halt-minute  than ever before."             .   .  Thus he was found by his nephew an  hourTater. Crutcher's dinner was still  in his bag, where he had thrown it to-  one side of the work-table The soup  was cold, and on its surface lay an  icing of thick, yellowish fat. .  <_< Hello!" said the youth;as-he entered the room.    ^ .    , '.,        " i.

"A beauty, isn't she?" he demanded, holding it toward the light. The  laundry hung from the lines of the  front tenement reflected the sun brilliantly, almost gaily, into the room.  "If anything should happen���������������������������you know  ���������������������������of course it won't, but if something  should, you understand, Danny, before  I finish, 1 want you to take the machine.  The plans are in the drawer. Tho patent papers are there, too. Take it,  Danny, and make it your life work.  There's big things in it, boy, big things.  It's yours."  Crutcher never sat down to his work-  table again. When he died, Danny  examined his room curiously. Tie rummaged through the table, the soap-box  cupboard, and along the mantel. lie  was surprised to find many things that  he did not remember ever having seen  before, though they must have been iu  plain sight. But he found nothing of  value, lie picked up Crutcher's invention, the fruit of two-score years, the  product of much misery. It glistened  prettily, the nickel screws contrasting  Avith the darker {)steel. ��������������������������� Danny set it  going on the table, for a time listening  to its high-pitched hum,- and wondering  Avhat he would do Avith it. But he had  not the patience to Avait for the Avliirl  to end itself; he caught the machine up,  gripping it tight, and let the propeller  die out furtively. After ho had taken  it to his own room, he occasionally  Avould set the contrivance spinning'-it's  span of twenty-four minutes out of  eternity. Sometimes he would set it in  the upright bars,-but of tenor he did  not bother, letting it whirl on the edge  of his washstand. ���������������������������  "J wonder Avhat good that'll ever do  mo," he would mutter. Less frequently  he would add, "He Avas a good old guy,  anyway." Then Danny Avould toss the  machine baciv into the draAver of, the  washstand.  , By aud by he almost forgot it entirely, forgot the patent papers, forgot even  his uncle., v_>uristnias-drew near.

I   found   two  A NEW METAL FOR TOOLS' -  APPARENTLY ayc need not fear that  the world aviII be deprived of cutting-tools AA'lien the supply of iron  =give-uout.=I.t=bas^boeiudisGOvered=that-  an alloy of cobalt and chromium is an  excellent substitute for steel and has,  in addition, one valuable property that  steel does not sIioav���������������������������it Avill not tarnish  or rust. Elwood Ilaynes, the inventor,  describes this interesting alloy, Avhich  he has named "stellito," in the Scientific American Supplement. It is ap-  parentlv not yet in shape to bo manufactured commercially, but has fascinating possibilities. Mr. Ilaynes notes  at-tho-outsctrthat thercis-just'one* serious objection to steel, as an clement  for cutting-instruments, and that is its  susceptibility to corrosion or rust. No  matter how highly finished a steel tool  may be, constant vigilance is necessary  to protect it from rusting. There is  thus plenty of room for Mr. Haynes'  neAv metal.   We read:  "Thero has been much discussion regarding the conditions Avhich bring  about the rusting of iron and steel, but  it is not my purpose to consider these  conditions, but to consider a new alloy  which not only rivals steel in cutting  qualities, but also possesses a resistance  to atmospheric influences which is perhaps equalled only by gold and.,, the  metals of the platinum group.  "When the arsenide (of cobalt) was  found in large quantity in and about  the toAvn of Cobalt, Out., in connection  with the mining of silver, an over-production of cobalt ore soon occurred, as  this substance became a by-product in  the mining of silver. An outlet for this  material Avas sought in vain, as no practical use could bo found for either the  metal or its compounds, aside from those  mentioned above."  About 1S05, i\lr. Haynes goes on to  say, he made some experiments on alloys  of nickel with iron, chromium, etc., and  a fcAv years later he added a small  amount of aluminum, making a hard,  brittle metal, Avhich could not be worked under the hammer, although ho made  from it a pocket-knife blade Avhich  dhoAved fair cutting qualities, and considerable resistance to atmospheric influences. A little later he produced a  combination of chromium and cobalt,  whieh, nofAvithstandiug -at hardness,  showed considerable mal i ility, and it  occurred to him that the alloy Avould be  suitable for cutlery, if it could be obtained iu sullicient quantity. To quote  further:  "Shortly after making these experiments I was called actively into the  automobile business, and did not make  further experiments on either of these  alloys for the next three or four years.  1 then took thc matter up for ignition  metal, and succeeded in making both alloys in considerable quantity. The fusions AS'erc first made in an electric furnace, but afterward 1 succeeded in melting the metal in a small furnace of special construction, operated by natural  gas. After somo experimenting I became able to melt tlie metal to a perfect  fluid, and cast it into bars ranging from  Vi inch to y2 iuch square. I found that  the metal worked readily at red heat,  although it showed a tendency to check  at the edges Avhen hammered out into  strips.  "After* some experimenting, I was  able to produce metal that would forge  out perfectly into thin strips, which  showed no tendency to- check. After  cooling, these strips .were as hard as  mild-tempered steel, and could scarcely  be scratched by a file. A kitchen knife-  blade was madefrom this material, and  used for all soits of purposes, such as  are known only to the culinary art.- After tAvo years of use, it showed not the  faintest sign of "tarnishing, and if held  in the sun, it produced a reflection -that  would dazzle the eye.  "In color, the metal stands between  silver and steel, and if suitably polished, it shows a high lustre. I have thus  far made no physical tests of the foTged  metal, but a cast bar showed an elastic  limit of 79,000 pounds, an elongation of  3 per -cent., and an ultimate strength  of 96,000 pounds to _the square iuch,  cross section. A test Avas'also made of  the modulus of elasticity of the materia], which was found to^be fully equal  to that of steel. These tests were made  on one ol the first bars produced, and  1 am pretty well -satisfied that much  higher results eould now be obtained. .  "NotAvithstanding the great hardness  of, the alloy, it not only forgesi readily  at a'red heat, but caii be bent at a right  angle cold, cither in the form of a casl  or forged-bar, provided the dimensions  do not exceed one-fourth-inch square.'  Its elastic limit is not-quite equal to  that of tool steel of the same-hardness,  but-it is'much tougher. Samples," can  also be-made, showing much . greater  hardness than those "described above,  but the breaking-strain - aiid elastic  limit '.will, under ���������������������������thcso - circumstances,"  closely .coincide. ~ . * ' ., "''.-���������������������������.-'  ~.."Blades" made-f rom the" aHoy-*tako~a  fine cutting.;edge, Avhich- is particularly  smooth, although capable':-of '.excellent  cutting- qualities.

'.'��������������������������������������������������������������������������������� .  "���������������������������While I do.not recommend the alloy  as yet for cutting metal, it has shown  gome remarkable capabilities in this lino,  especially.'for a-'non-ferrous alloy. A  small cnisel, about one-fourth of an inch  square, Avm readily cut a twenty-penny  Avire naif in tAvo, without" marring the  edge 'of the tool. A lathe tool made  from the-alloy Avith certain "modifications, is capable of. cutting ordinary  steel at a very 'high rate of speed.

Very little mention is made in ancient  records of the use of glass in windows.  The climate of Greece and Egypt and  the manner of life in those countries  gave little occasion for it.

We  are adding to our mechanical  staff this month; also a new job  press, and aim to increase our  efficiency and usefulness to the  community.    Walker Press.  INSTITUTE   STUMPING  POWDER  AGRICULTURAL   MUNICIPALITY  A movement is on foot in thc district of which Enderby is the centre,  to organize an agricultural municipality, the object being to take in all  the property from Mara south to a  line "not yet defined about two miles  south of Enderby, the Mabel Lake  Valley, and Avest to Deep Creek.  At present the Avhole project is in  a somewhat nebular state, the movement being launched but a few days  ago. It is believed by those who  have given the matter thorough  study that this is the only logical  thing for the farmers in this district  to do, in order . to hasten the opening up of the country.  It should be understood at the outset that the City of Enderby will not  in any way figure in thc incorporation, and the whole project Avill be  Avorked out by the ranchers themselves, with possibly- such assistance  as the business people might give as  a result of their experience as an incorporated-city. Aside from this Ave  are requested to make it clear that  Enderby as a city will keep out of  the incorporation.  This, avc feel sure, is Avise, for the  city has problems of its OAvn to Avork  out, independent or and apart from  anything that.might interest our agriculturists. This point being "made  clear, 4et us hope that the pro-ect  may be studied and gone into with  no thought of a selfish motive being  laid at the door of Enderby. The  movement comes from thc farmers  themselves, and they desire to incorporate independent of the city of Enderby, and the citizens of Enderby,  Ave feel sure, are not only .willing but  anxious that they should.  The main question, and the one of  vital "importance, is that incorporation is desired and desirable. The  fact that an incorporated community  is always in' a better position to  handle its business and to develop  than an unincorporated community is  too avcII known to require' any argument.     Thc fact is patent, to all.  Hence we feel that every encourage-  ment-shonld be given the movement,  As a result of the repeated requests that have been made from  time to time by thc Farmers' Institutes, the Government has finally decided to take off the shoulders of the  presidents and secretaries of the Institutes, the load they have heretofore had to bear in standing good  personally to tlie poAvder company  for each car of poAvder sent to the  Institutes to be peddled out to tlie  Institute members. The Government  is this year buying thc poAvder and  sending it in carload lots to the various Institutes throughout the Province, the secretaries of the Institutes  attending to the selling of the powder  and making returns to the Government.  The Government is now ascertaining through the Institute secretaries,  the amount of poAvder required, and  the time to ship. It will be to the  interest of every member of the Institute requiring poAvder to let the  secretary knoAV at once thc amount  required. The Government will this  year put a stop to the unfair method  resorted to by some users of powder  but not members of the Institute, to  get powder through some member of  the Institute. This year, if a member  of the Institute is discovered purchasing powder of the Institute for anyone not a member, all benefits to  him as a member will be sacrificed  for the year.  TOBACCO.

The   Provincial   Go\rernment seems  ever ready to lend a hand Avhen it is  shown   that   such    assistance   is deserved.   At the recent meeting of the  Central   Institute,    the   Government  Avas urged to lend such assistance to  the tobacco industry in the Province  as  it   has   previously   given to  the  fruit and   other   branches of agriculture.      As a   result   of this request,  the .services   of   Mr.    L. Holman of  Kelowna,   who    has demonstrated in  such  a capable manner  the possibilities Lt" tobacco "growing in.certain  districts of the. Province .by the adoption of scientific and correct.methods,  have been secured by thc Agricultural  Department    in   order, that   he may  visit different points throughout  the  Province   and   give   expert advice in  proper methods to adopt in order to  secure the best   results from tobacco  groAving.  Mr. Holman will give a demonstration meeting under the auspices of  the Northern Okanagan Farmers' Institute, in K. of P. hall, next Tuesday evening, March 7th.

Enderby  Printing that Counts  You can have it done reasonably and well at Walker Press  by every man desirous of assisting in  the fuller development of the district  surrounding Kndcrby.  A careful examination of the tax  roll of the district shows thc property value of the proposed new district  to foot up nearly one-half a million.  And yet it is barely one-half Avhat it  .should he, and would be, if the district were"bettor opened "up by roads  and developed as are the more thickly populated districts.  Better roads and more of them is  tlie cry going up from every part of  the district. Under thc proposed incorporation it would be possible for  thc needs of thc district to be better  looked after in this respect than is  now possible or will ever be possible  under tlie paternal care of the Provincial government. Thc maintenance  of thc trunk roads by the Province  is a recognized policy of the Government, regardless of Avhether the district is incorporated or not, and the  district itself is permitted to more  freely open up new roads and assist  in the development of new country.  There is very much to be said on  the 'question;'and Ave wish iioav simply  to open the burr. It will rcciuire the  better part of the current year to get  matters into shape for the change.  Probably with the opening of 1912 the  incorporation will have been perfected  and the district be placed upon a  home administration basis. It  Avould, avc think, be a great advantage to the district if such were to be  the case.  Chas. W. Little  Eldernell Orchard, Mara, B. C.

Victoria, B. C, Feb. 27.���������Spec.'al
correspondence The Press.��������� By tl:e
time this review of the parliaraou'ary
accomplishments of the past wov.K is
read, the 1911 session of British Columbia's legislature will have becvmie
history, prorogation being set for
Wednesday. That some few m'nor
features of legislation will not be advanced to completion by prorogation
day has latterly been obvious, but
this annual and inevitable sacrifice of
the legislative innocents will net
claim the usual number of victims,
and none of these of extra public importance. -   -'
In general legislation the week just
past has been a   heavy one..    Of the
eighty-one   public   and   private bills
presented   this   session,   the greater
portion have now passed through enc
or more   stages  within the past Cve
days.   Among the measures that have
actually been given third reading during the   week,    and   which now only
await His Honor's   formal assent to
take their   place   among the statute
laws, are   the ' consolidated Railway
Act, providing - for the simplification
of railway   company   procedure, ter-
minating charter-mongering practices,
and assuring in the future' what has
been aptly termed "free trade in railways;" the   Coal    Mines Regulation
Bill, which at its final stage obtained
the   special   endorsement even of the'
Socialist captain, who declared it the
best legislation   of   its character- in
the public interest that could, possibly be-devised   under  present   social
conditions, and probably the best law
for the protection of coal mine workers as yet enacted in any part of the
world;   the   bills    reconstituting the
Department of Public Works and establishing that of railways; together
with sundry   others of individual interest, but, by comparison, secondary
in general   importance.-    Among-the
public-bills in 'the - hands,of private
members, Mr. P..Williams' hardy an-*
nual .to' compel   fortnightly payment
of wages,-has   seen , the light-*apparr
ently just in timeto be-neatly shelved
for-7anotherVyear., -l This is the "more
regrettable"," in ,, that' -the "principal
features    of s the   measure   commend'
themselves.;,  It   is,.however, .the introducer's fault if it fails in consummation, it having day "after day been
"passed over'"' -at -his request, since
almost the   first   day of, the session;
Hon." Mr. Ellison- is entering most
energetically into the'prosecution of
his new duties . as   Minister of Agriculture. ��������� During the week he brought
into, the House(a series of bills aiming at. the   improvement of agricultural   conditions     The short title of
these bills will * be   sufficient to give
an idea of   their . importance:   First,
"An Act Respecting Agricultural Associations,"  giving" greater scope'to
these organizations, and making provisions for their more extended work;
second, .an Act respecting the protection and marking   of cattle, cited as
set forth the   procedure necessary to
be followed   in   the   branding of all
farm animals, and the registration of
the   brand    compulsory    before   any
branding is done under the provisions
of the Act;   third,'' a "Noxious Weed
Act,"   which   is   a  bill   designed to
cover the needs of the Province as a
whole, __to   prevent   the spreading of
noxious weeds,   and their final eradication; fourth, the "Foul Brood Act,'
an Act   to   aid   the -.apiaries of the
Province by   the   appointment of in-
inspectors, and making provision for
the   inspection   of   all bee plants in
operation in the province.
The ever-busy, ever-in-evidence Attorney-General has had this year
more than his usual grist of consolidating, correcting and perfecting
miuor measures, supplemented by
such highly important public-interest
bills as those- for the regulation of
tramways and of automobile traffic,
and for the control of insurance and
trust companies���������each very carefully
studied, extremely democratic, and
unmistakably in the public interest.
Apart from these, he has brought forward a series of short measures embodying requests of the National
Council of Women relative to the legal recognition of dower, inheritance,
and the "maintenance of wives deserted by their husbands." The two
former are intended to secure to widows a larger participation in the es
tates of their deceased husbands, and
the latter intended to make more
binding the obligation upon husbands
to maintain wives or families who
may have left them in consequence, of
cruelty or neglect. The Dower bill
is distinctly a compromise, but at
that will in all likelihood meet defeat, it being introduced by Hon. Mr.
Bowser personally, having failed to
commend itself to the Government as
a whole. It recognizes the principle
of the wife's third interest, as asserted in the legislationl of other
countries and provinces, and compromises on the vital'points in order
to avert a general disastrous interference with real estate business
methods as heretofore understood and
practiced in British Columbia.
Lands   Minister   Ross    has    shown
himself in   his   preliminary contributions to the legislation directly' affec-,
ting his own particular department,
a master,of the.practical and a past-
master in the   art   of   condensation.
He knows just'What he wants and also precisely why he wants it, and he
seeks to    gain   it    by   the   shortest
routes.  - One of this Minister's measures just   made   law    provides ' the
preliminary   machinery for a general
cheapening of .. surveys, by the establishment of a survey bureau directly
under 'departmental    sppervision and
control.-   Other_  new   legislation   of
which he is the author and the official
guardian, provides for the reinstatement - upon   payment   of all accrued
charges of lapsed timber, leases' or.liy
censes; the v closure   of reserves here-,
after 'against the coal locator; the reduction of the maximum area of land
leases, from   1,000   to " 640 acres; the
placing of all-highway matters under
a concrete >* Highways   Act to be" administered by the Public Works Minister; the^ increase of the price.of coal
lands from,$10 and $5 to\$20and*$15;
the numerical   augmentation' of the
.Water Board ",���������with provision for simultaneous   sittings ' by. -the *-various*
members;' the;- adoption'-- of: the ,'prin-'
ciple .of joint.',or',"common flumes or;
ditches for, the ^-."conveyance fof ..water
by companies   operating' in common'
territory;' and the bringing of. irrigation companies generally "under .direct,
control of   the   Lieutehant:Goverrior-
Besides   attending - to  . the   manyr
sided details of   the   Department of
Work,    "Good   Roads   Taylor"    has
found time to reorganize his Department on more efficient and economical
lines, to take   over as well the title
and   responsibilities    of   Minister   of
Railways,    and   incidentally, to bring
down to the   House   numerous clear-
cut and practical bills for further improving   the    effectiveness of his Department in a variety of ways.     In
one of   these    measures provision is
made for possession   being taken by
the Crown of lands required for highway purposes,    which    legislation is
found necessary in order to overcome
difficulties developing in practice with
respect' to the obtaining of right-of-
way for    roads    through the 40-mile
belt on the Mainland and also in the
Esquimalt & Nanaimo    railway land
grant   on   Vancouver   Island.     Con
siderable road milage has already
been built in these sections, but only
a fraction of what must be~construc-
ted in order to meet the growth of
settlement. If road-making is'to
continue m these sections, some such
provision���������corresponding with [ that
in crown grants generally���������has been
proven essential.
Hon. Dr.    Young's   particular oratorical triumph of the week and the
session, was scored   in his presen''a-
tion of the bill providing for the setting apart of   the   University site at-
beautiful   Point' Grey,    his eloquent,'
address being both historical and explanatory of the   development of the
University scheme and policy forming
so large a'part of the service he has
rendered an   is   rendering to present
and future generations of British Co- -
lumbians. -

"How?" demanded Snyder quickly.  "Hopkins will be missing in the morning, won't he?"  "He iss missing to-night," said Fischer. "His wife is missing him, all  right!"  "Xlv Plan is this," said Rico. "We  must let* it be thought that Hopkins  has gone away. Suppose we put a note  on his laboratory door, saying I hat he  lias been called away unexpectedly."  "I'll write that," said Snyder, taking  a. fountain pen and a sheet of paper  from his pocket. Rice held a match and  Snyder wrote the note which he pinned  to'the door of the laboratory, running  ���������������������������ahead of tlie others and rejoining them  '.as they came back-to the building. As  they passed the corner of the building  Rice said:  "What's that rattling in the wheelbarrow?"  "The spade," said Gordon.  "Spade!"  repeated Rice.  "We  had  no spade."  "Snyder found one in the ice-house  and used it to cover the bundle with  explained Gordon.  Her idiot!" cried Fischer under  his breath, and, in a fit of carelessness,  he lighted the cigar. Rice ordered that  he' extinguish the match and cautioned  silence, fancying that he heard the  sound of a twig being cracked underfoot, among the trees.' They listened,  but heard nothing further,"aud Gordon  replaced the wheelbarrow, leaving the  spado in it. Nobody, thought Rice,  connect Hopkins' disappearance  the wheelbarrow, anyway.  Then, alter hurriedly promising each  other to say nothing of'the evening's affair, they "departed for home.  As Gordon lighted the lamp in his  modest room, his eye fell upon au envelope on the dressing case. I Lis heart  leaped at sight of the familiar writing,  and he tore the envelope open excitedly.  A note enclosed read:  "George:    ..  . "I-have had to leave town suddenly.  Make no'attempt to find me, and do not  let .them<;know that, you were surprised  at my going. ' It is for your sake as well  is mine. Trust me and believe in mo.  ' "Yours ever,  "Ernesta.  "Monday evening, eight o'clock."  CHAPTER V1TX  The Road to the Station  "Gone!"   muttered   Gordon,   as   he  stood gazing at the note whieh he held  in Lis trembling hands. "For my sake!  What can it meanf Our quarrel because  [ chided her for spending so much time  iu Hopkins' laboratory? Because I showed  that  I  was  jealous?    No,  it  could  scarcely be that."-  lie paused and looked   again   at   the   note.     Suddenly   he  gasped. " '.For your .sake!' Great God!  She knows! She saw!"  The horrid thought flashed through  his mind that Ernesta, at the moment of  returning to the laboratory and calling  Professor Hopkins' name, had discovered the presence of Gordon and his associates iu the room. Perhaps'even she  had looked through tne key-hole, and  bad seen them standing guard over the  body  ���������������������������i*rVl if���������������������������  it Graydon represented a period fraught  vith painful recollections for the young  professor in the development of his love  :'or Ernesta.  Gordon "hurried his steps as lie re-  nembered Rassignol; remembered how  lie had first noticed what he interpreted  is an attachment between him and Er-  uesta; how ho had found them, ou more  than one occasion, In Hopkins' laboratory, so engrossed iu some chemical  problem as to be wholly unaware of his  presence till he had made it known;  how happy he, Goruon. had been when  Rassignol, having completed the special  course of studies under Hopkins, which  lie had come all the way from Paris to  pursue, had returned ip Vranc.  By this time, Gordon remembered, his  ���������������������������analytical mind had diagnosed his own  attitude toward Emerfta as affection.  The realization of this was a shock to  him, a shock such as might come to a  man who had been brought up to believe that his legs were merely ornamental appendages, and suddenly discovered that they could be used for locomotion.

Oh, what shall I  do?" and saw him gaze earnestly at  the second window, as he stood clutching the fence.  "What's he up to? Who's he spotting?" thought the detective.  Suddenly Gordon turned aud retraced  his steps, passing on the other side of  the tree behind which Sullivan was concealed. As he passed the detective  heard him muttering again:  "Ernesta!    Oh, my Ernesta!"  ".It's Gordon!" flashed through the  mind of Sullivan, as he recalled., the  statement by the student in the drug  for he had  make a de-  Ernesta.  n 1  choic-  which it is  would ever  sighing and  in a solitary, lonely way,  no courage with which to  duration of his passion to  She, however, was not wanting in that  intuition which is every woman's  est attribute,  and but for  doubtful  if  Gordon's  love  have resulted in more than  dreaming of her.  In her maidenly way, Ernesta nad  shown the bashful young scholar that  his affection was not unrequited. Little  by little she drew him out, to his intense joy. This joy, however, was  coupled with disappointment that this  woman, whom he regarded as the most  perfect of her sex, should prove so fickle  as to forget Rassignol whom he still considered to have had hor affections while  he remained at Graydon. Self-satisfaction took the place of this unpleasant  feeling at last, and Gordon, when he  became sure that Ernesta eared for him,  was supremely happy. He made his  declaration finally and was accepted.  Poverty stood in thc way of an immediate marriage, and though Gordon  had some small property in Boston real  estate, they were waiting for his position with regard to salary fo be bettered before they should wed.  ' -Their- courtship" and betrothal had  been a delightful period in their happy,  simple way; Gordon devoting himself  with more assiduity to his studies than  ever in order to hasten the time of his  promotion; Ernesta saving by assisting  Professor."

And these were only'recent.  in Professor  s growing interest  store regarding the attachment of the  young professor and the mysterious  Frost girl. Gordon went rapidly down  the street, and Sullivan, intent on keep  ing him in sight, abandoned his tree  dodging and followed openly. There  was no, danger, apparently, of the pursued discovering the detective, for the  young professor seemed to have but one  thought, to arrive wherever he was going as soon as his steps would carry  him. As for the pedestrians, it was ten  o"  at that hour  At; the foot of tho main street was the  railway station, and Sullvan decided  that G-ordon was aiming for that.

To avoid giving  evidence against them���������������������������or (ho thought  with a tinge of conceit), against him  alone? it must be something of that  sort, else why so sudden and hasty a  iepnrture,  in  so mysterious a  manner?  "God bless her if it is as l think!"  said Gordon to himself, "lint she aha 11  not- go if  F can catch her!"  lie blew out  the lamp aud crept si-  lonlly down the stairs and out into the  "night," with tho-girl's note still clutched   in   his  fingers.  A deep love existed for Rrnesta Frost  on the part of the young scholar, whose  lscclicism had m-ver before permitted  in affair of the heart to interfere with  the pri.sy studioiiMiess of his career.  Almo>l from the first sight of Krimsta,  nearly four years since, he had been  forced to a din it to himself a peculiar  interest in the girl, so different from  the feeling awakened in him by any  other woman,  To-night he could see her a������������������ she was  then, a fresh, tall girlish figure, modest  and beautiful, earnest ami studious.

Then came Albert Rassignol! Why  the personality of this young student  from Paris should obtrude itself upon  Gordon's mental vision to-night, when he  had been enabled to blot it out for  months past, can be. explained only by  the fact that he was searching every  jell of his memory- for some fact to  lccount for Ernesta'a sudden disappearance, and that Rassignol's sojourn  Frncsta  Hopkins' work, her evenings .spent  either in thc laboratory with the savant^  or alone in her room working out his  problems after hours, had finally filled  her lover with a feeling of jealousy.  She had tried in vain to assure him  that he was foolish; he was not so certain of his own charms as' not to fear  that Hopkins might have others which  had attracted Ernesta. He pouted like  a child, unable to bring his philosophy  fo aid him. Ernesta and he had had  many disputes over the matter., and  once", in a burst of high spirits, the  girl had flung his engagement ring in  Gordon's face, telling him .that she did  not care to have a love which doubted  her so.   13lit this quarrel  and         "  for?"   he   asked  train left at  But the station  and from behind a pile of freight Sulli  van was soon watching him -jn conversation with the night watchman, the  sole occupant of the lightless place, and  their words, were easily distinguishable.  "Nothing ���������������������������or ��������������������������� nothing," replied  Gordon, so plainly at a loss for what to  say that Sullivan wondered at the  watchman's apparent lack of suspicion.  ".Just taking a walk."  "'Fine night, Professor," .said . the  watchman. -,.   -    . ���������������������������  "Very," said Gordon. "By the way,  was there anyone���������������������������I mean, did you have  any passengers on the hist traiu out  to-night?"  "The eight o'clock?. No, Professor,  there was only one."  '''One!"

A kerosene lamp  on a post in the road bore the title  of the littlo inn on its glass, aud shed  a few ravs on Ihe road. These fell on  Cordon's face, and to a man standing  at th" window of a room on fhe second  floor in deep thought, the picture was  so intercting as to make him leap  back'ward   iu   surprise.  It was Detective Sullivan, who had  just reached his room after the strange  affair of the diamond. He recognized  Cordon as one of the four men whom he  had vi'en with the wheelbarrow, at the  college buildings, and he could not help  but observe,'oven in the dull glow of  the lamp outside, tho tense expression'  on the young scholar's white face.  "There's something serious the matter with that follow!" exclaimed the  detective, and, catching up. his hat, he  hurried down the stairs,  When   Gordon,   unaware,   of   course,  Bicklo's Anti-Consumptive Syrup is  agreeable to thc taste, and is a certain  relief for irritation of the throat that  causes hacking coughs.

There is no need to recommend it to  those familiar with it, but to those who  seek a sure remedy and are in doubt  what to use, thc advice is���������������������������try Bicklo's  Syrup.  " 'Twasn't a she," laughed the  watchman. "Tt was Dr. Whittridge;  he went over to Hardwick ou a case.  Why, was you expectin' anybody to go  away?"  "No," said Gordon, "nobody."  Then a pause, as though he were considering how to end the conversation.  "Good-night," he said quickly, and hurried up the street.  Sullivan had not been expecting so  rapid a movement on the young professor's part. Gordon came'by the pile of  freight that" only half concealed the  defective before he could draw back  into tbe shadow. On seeing Sullivan  lurking there, he stopped and looked  full at him. Unfortunately for the detective, tne sole street lamp within  thirty yards was not more than twenty  x������������������efit=l-i^mi-^] i li"-.���������������������������n? iil���������������������������his���������������������������f-icn-ep uliL^b e_  plainly seen by the surprised Gordon,  who took a long look ot him. Sullivan  fried to look unconcerned.  "Good evening," he said, "got a  match? "I was tryin' to get a light  in here, but the wind blew out my last-  one."  "Wind?"   said   Gordon   suspiciously.  The night was absolutely zephyrless.  Then  he went on.  Sullivan watched him out of sight,  then retu'rne'd "lohis hotel, slightly "crest-"  fallen.  SNOW AT SEA  ON the eastern  horizon the sea  cut  the sky in a dark, hard line; there  was no color in either sea or sky,  nothing but an all-pervading darkness,  and  the windless   lloor   of   the   ocean  showed up as a dull, opaque, seemingly  endless  space.    There  are  times  when  the sea shows no lights at all, aud when  the surface appears to be of the color  and even the consistency of a dull, badly painted iron plate.   J't was so on the  usiy in question.    There was no hint of  movement, and yet at half-ebb the vast  body of water was racing eastward to  where grayish-black joined   bluish-gray  out there on the confines of space. Over-  bead,   the sky had  the aspect of one  great   smudge���������������������������an   even   surface   indescribable, as if -some celestial  plumber  had  smoothed  it down  with a palette-  knife.   -Only in the northeastern  quarter was there a hint of the change that  was lo come. Here the overhead smudge  was broken ever so slightly, faint pencils of light "breaking here and  there  through the  even  deadncss which prevailed;  and  thus  the weather  held  as  the  tide  drained  out to  its uttermost  limit.   Tt was deathly cold, and so deadly still that, as the shoals showed forth  from the murky waters, there was not  even a line of foam around the brown  patches and humps of sand which were  now momentarily appearing, and above  which  ho-vered    the   gulls,   white   and  silent  ghosts  iu   a   dark  and  formless  world; ice scummed the surface of the  shallow-sea water pools left among thc  hollow spaces of thc now bare shoals.  The   sf illness  and   the   frost   had   held  for   nigh   upon  forty-eight  hours;   but  on the last quarter of the ebb the glass  dropped a tenth.    As thc flood asserted  itself  there  came  a -further  and  more  decided downward movement, and with  it came the  wind and  a  break  in the  stillness of the weather conditions.  There was no mistaking the signs and  tokens. Very gently a light zephyr  sighly languidly forth from the "brave,  northeast," with force not sufficient at  first to ruffle the shoreward-going tide.  At the same time the smudge overhead  broke and split���������������������������so much so, indeed,  that at one time in the afternoon a  vagrant and errant shaft of sunlight  shot a lurid red pathway athwart the  bows of the steamers racing for "London River.", The mariner who "had  cleared the-shoals and had a snug anchorage under his .'lee was one'to be  congratulated on-this particular January afternoon. :  It was au attack in force, but also in  form, and.the clerk of the weather spared the seaman none of tho usual preliminaries. From under the dark line of  the horizon of which we have spoken  rolled up the black, violet clouds which  hold tho snow, and piled themselves in  the quarter between north and east  from tho sea-rim to the zenith. At half-  flood came the wind; no more at first  than a gentle wind, but it bore on its  wings the first hint of the snow,in a  fine, dry, impalpable powder," deluding  the inexperienced into the idea that  "after all it "wasn't going to be much."  Not so thought the men of the light-  sirens  "1  draw  CHAPTER IX,  The Bank Episode  am sorry, but this check will ovor-  your husband's account!"  .'Mrs. Hopkins, standing at the window  in the Graydon Bank, felt herself turn  to sfone. She could not move, she could  not cry out. She could merely look  nppealingly, helplessly, dumbly, at the  man   behind   the   window.  "There is only $l(!.i33 to his credit."  said Mr, Fox, the cashier. "Only  $l(i.*>.V  It was shortly after nine o'clock.  Tuesday morning.. Mrs. Hopkins had  sent the children early to school, and.  without waiting to attend to her household duties, had rushed to the bank to  draw the money necessary to secure  Detective Sullivan's services. She had  Avritten the check and presented it at  the window, accompanying its offering  with a smile that was meant to be  pleasant and cordial. She did not want  anyone to guess the torture that was  gnawing at her heart and had kept her  sleepless through the long night. The  cashier���������������������������who acted in many capacities  in the little bank���������������������������examined the check-  more carefully. Airs.

The glass still dropped, and thc wind  rose all the afternoon, until in seamen's  parlance it was blowing half a gale;  but still the snow was nothing to bother  about particularly, for the forces of evil  were in no hurry, aud were leisurely  "working up," even as docs a new.  steamship for an important trial of her  engines���������������������������lL-canie-at-ktst.on-thc_thiril.  it comes he is "hi his element"; but  '' when he can see his danger" he makes  shift with it as one of the inevitable  disagreeables of his calling,- and when  he cannot sec it he is invariably in  for an anxious time. Fog is bad enough,  but in these latitudes it is seldom, if  ever, accompanied by a gale of wind;  but it is quite otherwise with the snow,  which takes on a gale as often as.Hot,  and thereby considerably complicates  the situation. When snow comes,at sea,  you can, in the. first place, see nothing  at all, and in consequence of the bitter  wind you are rendered so numb with the  cold that the extra vigilance demanded  is a terrible strain upon the mind. And  yet there are men who can so far rise  superior to all this as to do what was  done by the men of the Grimsby trawler  Oldham.  And now, hats off, my brother-mariners; and you of the laudfolk also, stand  by to cheer; likewise those who are so  ready to insist that the English aro a  decadent race, lot them hide their  diminished heads as they read the tale  oi' a North Sea rescue:  "Early on Tuesday morning the Hull  trawler   Gothic   was   clean  swept,  her -  bridge,  boat and funnel being carried  overboard.    The  crew  had  to  tako  to  the pumps to keep her a flout, and everything inflammable, including the whole  of her nets, was burnt for flares."  , But on Tuesday night, by the mercy -  of Providence,  there  arrived  upon the  scene    the   Grimsby   trawler.  Oldham,  "and   Captain   Marshall   launched   his  boat and took off four of the Gothic's  crew.'/    .he "launched  his boat!"    It  all sounds so simple, but to those who  know   fho   North   Sea,   what   a   whole  world of heroism is contained  iu these  three words; and how humble it makes  one feel when  one  thinks  of the men  who went in that miserable cockleshell  m that weather! .One can only speak  of  "weather"  in  (his  connection,  for  the  thing has  got beyond adjectives.  And then  the account goes on  to say  that ihe small boat of the Oldham "wa������������������  broken to pieces."    One would like to  hear the details of this catastrophe; but  there are- none, and we can  only conjecture the despair that miist have.filled fho hearts of the remainder of the  unfortuuales..on board the Gothic when  they witnessed this last and apparently  supreme aud irremedia^e-disaster;- for  now surely all hope was cut off, and to  them  there  seemed  to be  nothing but'  to wait until the inevitable end came  and  their  vessel should   founder under  their feet.  The   account   continues:   "The   Oldham's skipper intimated that he would  stand  by at any cost, aud throughout  Ihe night, jn  a  storm of snow, he repeatedly tried fo get near the Gothic,  and  several times throw-a rope, which  fell short."    Consider the risk that the  rescuers   were  running? all   that  night''  There was no boat loft, and in consequence the two trawlers had to approach -  each other.sufficiently near to allow-of-^  a rope'to be" th rowir' from one to "the"  other, and in that..weather," and'in f,l*'e".-  dark.and the falling show!   -The steam- .  ship,  the   nerve, ,thc   dogged,  spleudid '-  ���������������������������courage of it all, hour after hour be if,   ���������������������������  remembered,   when   a   wrong-' turn- of-  the wheel, a shove too' "far ahead -with  the   engines,   and   then���������������������������collision,  "and  the  end.

And now the sequel: "The  ank within  twenty minutes of  quarter of the rising tide, a gale and  a snows term in one, and thc snarling  waves racing in front of the wind were  blotted out in that white mantle of terror which is the worst foe the mariner  has to encounter,  By the time it came to high-water the  bottom had dropped out of fhe barometer, and the weather in the estuary  could hardly havo been worse; but wc  are not concerned with what was happening -Ilion;, but-willi-somethiiig-thaf  occuned in fhe North Sea.

disheartening, not "only to the woman of limited means, but
quite as much to the woman who has ordered without counting thc cost,,but a careful consideration of thc subject discloses the fact that these/latest gowns do not make the others
seom out of date, but are in themselves just the very latest
ideas and are intended for the more elaborate entertainments

Tho spangled and embroidered matorials aro wonderfully
beautiful this season, and it is often possible to turn out a
smarter gown made from material by the yard than from the
ready.made robe. The net, covered with gold, jet, steel or
������lver beads, is wonderfully light and most exquisite in tex-
cure. Embroidered on the sheer, transparent net any color
shows through it, while on the heavier mesh it is sufficiently
strong to be made into coats and wraps. Veiling light colors
with black plain chiffon or net has been popular too long to
oe strictly fashionable, and yet there are numberless smart
Towns of this description; and there is the embroidery of the
dwelled beads or spaugles that is different again and one of
this season's' styles. Among the very newest models, are
most charming gowns of black or dark color veiled in light
color or white net covered with beads���������gold, silver, or jet���������
and then with cither a design worked on for border or finished with embroidered bands. This is another treatment
of the eternal black* and white combination.
Lace is playing a most important part in the newest evening gowns, and the spangled and embroidered lace tunics and
flounces are marvellous in 'design and workmanship. White
lace with black and black lace with white (tho changes are
endless and rarely ineffective), blackcand silver, gold and
hiaek���������it is inconceivable what a variety of effect can be
obtained by these combinations. No wardrobe is complete
without an all black gown, and a jet trimmed black go-wn is
rarely unsuitable for any occasion, but the combining of lace
with'tulle, chiffon, and satin makes a lighter appearance than
when the heavier materials like satin and velvet have only
jet as trimming. Jetted lace docs not sound like a new,trim-
miing, hut the jetted laces of to-day are quite unlike the jet
lace that was formerly used. Now tho finest of lace mesh is
embroidered with cut beads; then it was a heavier lace with
a closed pattern worked out in much heavier beads, and consequently lacking the transparent light effect of the embroidered laeo of to-day.
Combining brocade with embroidered lace or spangled
trimmings is most'successfully carried out in this winter's
fashions. Thc beauty of the brocade is not hidden, or inter:
fered with in any way'by the bands or even by the tunic,
and when thc .material by tho yard is used it'is most gracefully draped or caught up over the brocade gown. 'One of
the'most striking gowns,of the winter is'a blue and silver
brocade.    The skirt, narrow, but not exaggeratedly scant,

attraction for the cultured taste, it must be admitted that

Change the scene to a banquet or private dance, and the
latter style will  be  the smartest.    The tunic  overdress of
this winter affords  opportunity for  an  endless variety  of
evening gowns, and the cost is as varied as the wearer could
possibly desire.   The really cheap spangled aud embroidered
robes aro not to be depended upon for durability and sh-uld
bo most carefully selected.    There should not be too much
dressing in thc net itself, neither should it be too soft, and
whether beaded, spaugled,-or with paillettes or embroidery,
thero must not be loose threads or defects,    [t could not be
expected for tne small cost that anything but machine work,
and not by anv means thc best machine work either, could be
obtained; but" there is a wide choice and it, is well worth
taking time to select the best.   A defective robe is not worth
buying at any price, for the first time of wearing it may
fail to pieces.
*    *    *
Among the expensive robes there are most exquisite designs in crystal, pearl, and diamante effects, often combined
with silk embroidery of tho finest hand work. White, in the
numberless shades���������the oyster white, with its tone of pearly
grey, being especially smart���������all light colors and black with
jet, silver, or gold embroidered tunic, arc all most popular,
Combining a color with white is effective and smart. The
palest pink with white, thc lining of white veiled jn pale pink
chiffon and then covered and again covered with pearl or
crystal embroidered net; gives a delightful shimmory appearance quite unattainable if only tho one shade of material is
used. A good effect is obtained by combining beads of different sizes. Small crystal beads'and the long bugle bead,
as it is known, spangles or paillettes, also combined with
crystal, aro far more effective tjjan when only one kind is
used. Rhinestones and silver paillettes with jet beads and
spangles cannot be included in the newest fashions, but the
combination has been tried too often and its value is too well
determined for it to go out of fashion, and there have been
new ways discovered of combining them differently than
White Satin Gown with Gold Embroidered Tunic of Bluo
has no trimming. The upper part of thc waist and the sleeves
are of silver net embroidered in crystal and rhinestone beads.
On thc front of the waist is a soft bow of blue velvet, but
for this cau'be substituted a spray of artificial roses in dull
pink shades or a bunch of orchids. Another gown of brocade
���������this one of rose pink and gold���������has a draped ovorskirt of
the sheerest white net with gold beads. The low-cut waist
is covered with tho net, which also forms the sleeves, and the
folds of material arc drawn down into'thc belt and fastened
with a superb buckle of jewels and gold.
There is a question as to whether it is not a mistake to
cover so beautiful a material as this costly brocade with anything. On the other hand, this is an age of the world when it
is tho very height of fashion to combine as many expensive
materials as possible, as though to emphasize the fact that
the gown is costly. These two models, hoAvever, furnish
examples of both styles, the blue and silver, with no veiling
and the pink aud gold with its draperies of gold embroidered
IN addition to being the life of trade,
the competition that has grown
more and more iieated >in every
channel of business activity during thc
last few years has proved itself to be
tho life-giver, or mother, of a number
of queer sustenance-gaining professions.
Tn witness whereof, and by way of
primary concrete illustration, there is
"Cinder Ella," as she is best known���������
an aged woman with a knack of removing cinders from one's eyes, who ekes
out her living in this fashion in the
downtown section of New York". The
curb market traders arc her most lucrative patients, and it is said hor revenue
sometimes amounts to- a dollar and a
half a day.
Near the Five Points, in lower New
York, there is an undertaker who, having failed to gain a living through ordinary undertaking methods, has had
better financial luck since ho inaugurated what he calls "home burials." The
section in which his'shop is located is
inhabited by Chinese, Italians, and persons of half a dozen other nationalities,
and when one of these dies the undertaker gives him a burial ceremony as
nearly like that of his own people as he
can. The ceremony goes gratis with the
price of the casket, which is collected
from the relatives of the departed.
The so-called "window vaudeville"
performers are another result-of the
competition that drives individuals to
make a living in odd ways. The comely woman attired in a bathing-suit who
"demonstrates" a patent shower-bath
in the window of one of the New York
drug stores, tho young man who gets six
dollars a week for showing the passing
crowds the way to manipulate a new
style of easily-tied neckwear, and thc
woman who sits in a shop window demonstrating on her -own bare feet the
relief-giving effect of a certain brand
of talcum powder, are illustrations. One
of the oddest of all the more recent
"window vaudeville"-performers4s a
man who disguises himself to represent
Theodore Roosevelt and. who gets
eight dollars a week foT standing in a
shop -window back of a placard that an-,
nounccs prizes for any' passers-by who
are able to detect the slightest movement in his rigid body.
A score or moro of different so-called
"human dolls" have followed the footsteps oi. tho Roosevelt" man in their effort to gain a livelihood by posing in
store windows. ��������� Following thc victory
of Johnson in the fistic arena at Reno,
negro boys' by the '.hundred swarmed
into Coney Island to take advantage of
the fifty cents a day increase in pay that
was advertised by those "in ehargo of
the booths where five cents allows one.to
throw three balls at a negro's head.  So
great was thc popularity of this amusement on the part of thc white brethren
at this particular time, that manv hard-
up negroes availed themselves of the
means thus afforded to make a living.
The man in evening clothes who flashes out the name of a certain brand of
liquor on his transparent shirt-lront as
he saunters down the street by night
is an oddity in quest of a living not
less queer than the man who recently ���������
advertised in the London Times that,
for a small remuneration, ho would impersonate any wealthy man who cared
to engage his services, and in his disguise would meet all the "cranks" who
might come to bother said wealthy man.
"I can save my client's'time and maybe his life," the advertisement was
Tn Chicago, there was chronicled the ���������
case not long ago of a man  who was
earning his living, ������it the rate of about
four   dollars  a   week,  by  getting  tips
from men whose hats ho ran after at a
particularly windy corner- of one of thc
busiest sections of the city.   And there ,
is an aged woman in Philadelphia who '
ekes out a living by loitering 'around
tho walks of Fair mount Park and mend- '
ing thc dolls and toys of the'little girls,
who go there for their daily airing". She
carries a cement preparation with her,
and her income is estimated at about
five dollars a week.

A business meeting of tbe City  Council was held in the Council  Chamber last Monday evening, the  Mayor and all members present.  Alderman Worthington was appointed Acting Mayor, to fill the  chair during the current year in the  absence of Mayor Ruttan.  Aid. Greyell introduced a by-law to  regulate billiard saloons. The provisions of the by-law are:  1. That no person under the age of  18 years shall be admitted to, or be  present in, any billiard saloon while  any game is being played, or at any  time during the hours when such saloon is ordinarily open to the public.  '2. That tbe window or windows of  every bilLiard saloon shall at all  times be kept clear of any blind or  obstruction of any kind, so that a  clear view from the outside may be  afforded of each and every part of  the interior of such billiard saloon;  3. That every billiard saloon, and  every billiard table kept for the use  of the public in any place which is  not a billiard saloon, shall be closed  on each and every night at eleven  o'clock, and shall remain closed until  six o'clock the next morning; provided always that no such saloon or  table shall be open between the hours  of eleven o'clock on Saturday night  and six o'clock on Monday morning;  4. That any person found guilty of  an infraction of any of the provisions  of this by-law shall, upon conviction  be liable to a" fine not exceeding, if a  first offense under this by-law, the  sum of five dollars, and in the case  of a second or subsequent offense, the  sum of ten dollars, exclusive of costs.  The by-law passed its first reading.  Aid. Worthington brought up the  matter of street lighting, and it was  decided to install twenty-five tungsten lamps of 'W candle-power on the  main streets, as a test, with the object of later putting them in all over  the city, if it is-found that they are  satisfactory.  A letter was read.from the Union  of Canadian Municipalities, stating  that the said Union was endeavoring  to send a delegation of representa-  atives from Canada to the Old  Country, to meet there the men of  the municipalities of England, with  the object of learning from them the  best methods of laying out and running the small cities.  A letter was read from the Vernon  Jubilee Hospital asking for the'annual donation from the City, was  read and the Clerk was instructed to"  reply that in view of Enderby having  a hospital requiring such assistance  as could be afforded, it was the intention of the City to assist the  home institution.  Mayor Ruttan brought up the matter of the unfinished road planned by  last year's    Council   to open up the  Lawes hill   property as far as .Tohn-  and    stated that he had  ceed $2,000, pending collection of current taxes.  The Clerk was instructed to send to  all property owners whose taxes for  the year 1909 have not been paid,  notice that their property will be put  up for sale at the expiration of three  months.  Adjourned at 11:30.  DAIRYMEN, ATTENTION !  At the recent meeting of the B. C.  Dairymen's Association, the directors  decided to divide the Farm Dairy  competition which has already been  in progress for one year, into two  classes, in order that a number of  our smaller dairymen in the Province  may have a chance to compete for  the cup, medals and honors, and not  be.corrrpelled to compete against the  larger dairies of the Province, thus  giving the small man an equal chance  with the large one. In this matter  the -.'directors are making arrangements for a cup, the name of which  will be published later, but one  which will be of equal importance to  that of the larger trophy given by  the Provincial Government. .- They  are also giving three medals corresponding with those of the larger  dairies.  The division of the competition into two lots is as follows: Those  having five to fifteen cows milking  and the larger dairies, those having  over fifteen cows milking. This division should induce a larger number  of our dairymen in the Province to  compete in . this competition. All  the' expense that - is required is that  they be a member of the B. C. Dairymen's Association and hold themselves open for two inspections per  year by. such judges as may be appointed by the Association.  For fuller particulars and entrance  forms, apply to the secretary of the  B. C. Dairymen's Association, Victoria.     - -   . -  Watch our Windows  for  Special Bargains  COMPANY  Every Department  Otters  Great Bargains  Of 0+0+0+0+<>'K>+0-H>+<>+of o 0+<>+<^+fhh>H>4<>H>+<>Hr+<>  Cb  NEWS  of-o*-o*<>-'K>+<>4<>f<>^ o><>4o4<>4<>><>4<>>-a4-o-f<>f<>fo  All new gowns require the most perfect-fitting Corsets.
