Wright entertained fifty guests at a farewell dinner given in the spacious dining  room of the Bnderby hotel, last Friday evening, in honor of Mr. and  Mrs. Basil Gardom, who were leaving  the following day for Vancouver. It  was a very happy occasion, made so  largely by the hearty good spirit of  Mr. and Mrs. Gardom, and the bon  homie .of host and hostess; After the  sumptuous dinner, the evening was  spent in social good-fellowship, and  as the wee sma' hours began to peak  around the corner, Mayor Bell, on  behalf of the friends gathered and  absent, tendered to Mr. and Mrs.  Gardom their deepest regrets-coupled  with their hearty good wishes for  their success and happiness in their  new home. Mr.- Gardom replied in  good spirit, thanking Mr. and Mrs.  . Wright for their great kindness in  bringing,so many of their friends together on such an occasion, many of  whom.he had been closely associated  with, in Enderby for the past 16  years. The following -guests were  present:  Mr. , Wright, Mrs. Gardom; Mr.  Gardom, Mrs.. Wright; Mr.-Heggie,  Mrs. Mowat; Mr. Lemke, Miss .Cor-  bould; Mr. Taylor, Mrs. Harvey; Dr.  >Keith, Mrs. Walker; Mr. Crane, Mrs.  Banton; Mr. Walker, Mrs. Keith;  Mr. Banton; Mrs." Sharpe (A. B.)

Contractors Russell & Barle have  both the. Methodist' church building  and the City. Hall under roof, and  the snows of winter will not materially _____ d the work.of completion.  Soon.Bnderby- will have one of the  handsomest churches in the Valley,  and a City Hall worthy of the name.  "As You Like.. It,", next Monday  night in K. of. P. hall. Don't miss  it. Fourteen people in the-company,  and the performance put on as complete and elaborate as it is given in  the Walk .������������������ Theatre, Winnipeg.  .Some of . the Mabel Lake Valley  boys walked nine miles thorugh the  slush and snow Tuesday evening to  hear the'���������������������������English Grand Opera Sing-  res,-and wen had to be disappointed.  We mention this fact as an evidence  that it is the high-class entertainments that Enderby people are per-  pared to endorse.  Morley A.  Jull, Provincial Poultry  Expert, was   visiting    Enderby poultrymen last week.   Mr.  Jull will endeavor to . return   to   Enderby next  week so as' to visit the Poultry Show  and- get in   touch   with more < of our  poultrymen.   It is the purpose of the  Provincial Department of Agriculture  to establish a Provincial. Poultry Association, with a view of bringing all  poultrymen in closer touch with the  business and further improve the conditions under   which   the poultry industry is laboring.  B. T. Smith left for High River,  Alta., Wednesday -evening, to pur-"  chase a carload of draft horses. Mr.  Smith has already disposed of two  carload, or 25 head, of these horses,  and has orders for the carload he is  going for now.  Be'ngough's - performance last Saturday evening was given a crowded  house, and this versatile entertainer  made good -in everything said of  him. He is a marvel with the crayon  and his mimicry and elocutionary  powers greatly pleased his audience.  Winter Poultry Show-  in Enderby Dec. 8-9-10  Final preparations    for the Winter charge.   At-all other times, the gea-  Poultry Show opening in Enderby on  eral   admission    fee   .will be 25c for  Dec. 8th, are now almost completed,  and when next Wednesday comes it  is believed'by those having charge of  the preparations that Enderby will  see the biggest and best showing of  poultry ever gathered together in the  Okanagan. Unusual interest is.being  shown by local poultrymen, .especially with the younger men riand - in  locally. hatched birds from locally-  layed eggs, and there will be many,  exhibits made by boys interested in  the industry- '  K. of P. Hall has been engaged- for  the occasion. On Wednesday- ��������������������������� and  and Thursday morning. the judging  will be done, and Thursday at 10  o'clock the hall or exhibition room  will be thrown open to the public.  The exhibition will be open Thursday  and Friday evening until 10 o'clock,  and on Friday afternoon, from' 4 to.  6 o'clock all school children will be  admitted -to -the   exhibition free-of  adults, and 15c fort children.  The following gentlemen have contributed the amounts stated, since  the regular prize list was printed:  W. E.- Banton, $2.50; Wm. Gracie,  |2.50 for best utility male bird; _G.  C. Salt, $5; Evans & Mack, $2.50;  G. H. Smedley, $2.50,for best Cock-,  ereland pullet hatched from eggs  purchased from him in 1909.

"In order to be poor in the Okanagan, you have to waate an awful lot of Time and Money."  A meeting of the Curling Club was  held in Dr. Keith's office last Monday  evening. JVlr. Bailey was engaged to  get the rinks in shape for the roarin'  game, and'papers made ready for the,  members" to "sign up." The question of the "annual bonspeil being  held at Enderby was discussed, but  _ in _view__of _our_not_ being _able_to_ give  any assurance that we can provide  four rinks, the matter was laid over  for future action.  All who were at K. of P. hall election night, appreciated the fine entertainment provided by Mr. Simpson's  Edison. "Poor John" and "The  Sweet By-and-By," seemed to touch  the hearts of all, the sweet strains of  the latter bringing to the heart of  Mr. Bell, president of the Liberal Association, such hope "and gladness" hc  endeavored to inspire every liberal in  the room to rise and join in singing  the chorus.  Mr. Robt. English returned from a  visit of several months to his Prince  Albert home on Saturday last, accompanied by his daughter and two  children, who will spend the winter  in Enderby. It was 2!) below zero at  Prince Albert a few days before he  left, and Mr. English concluded it  was time t~j get back to the sunny  Okanagan.  Peter Greyell has gone to considerable expense this season to make his  skating rink complete in every detail.  He has fenced a hockey center, with  boards four feet high and above this  wire netting, and this is circled by a  twelve foot sheet of ice, so that on  the evenings when hockey is played,  the spectators can view the game and  at the same time enjoy a skate free  from danger of the puck.  Jas. Mowat made a transfer of the  Smedly acreage property to the A.  R. Rogers Lumber Co., this week.  The property is situated on the river  next to the farm of Wm. Hancock,  about two miles from town. It has  considerable, valuable timber on it,  and a great deal of pasturage land  and hay land. It is intimated that  the company will hold the land as  pasturage,for its horses.  It" is quite a mark of our progress  for a town the size of Enderby to  have a Shakespearean play put on by  a first-class company of artists.   But  H.     M.       .VAIiK.  R  _>*_>____:  ONE  MAN'S POINT. OF VIEW  3^%_>*s:  B1  RUCE lacks' one of the cardinal  virtues of a good fighter���������������������������he is  a poor loser. His attitude in  the Saturday Sunset, in its issue of  November 27th is that of a peevish,  petted, spoiled . child. It is beneath  what we would expect of a man. He  is mean,- small, narrow, bigoted and  contemptible in. his argument. He is  lacking in every salient attribute of  the newspaperman; insane in his conclusions and cruel in his deductions.  ""As^a^newspapermanlr-Bruce^McGon^-  nell has won the admiration of his  fellows in the craft; hc is well-liked  and his candor appreciated by a very  large following of readers, but we are  much in doubt if any will agree with  him in his present attitude. He says  of the elections:  "If it were not that the situation  in which this Province will now find  itself is so serious, the result of  ThursdayV- poll,might, almost, be  treated with levity. * * * With a  Government led by McBride and Bowser, and with no opposition, the people of this Province have cause to  pause and consider what they have  done. With this Government a clear  four years ahead of it and no restrictions placed upon its course of action, we are indeed in a serious position. ��������������������������� ��������������������������� * Wc have given a unanimous mandate to the McBride-Bowser-  Green-Mann combination tq come and  take whatever they good and well  please. Worse still, if the situat.on  could be worse, thc press of the Province is largely in the hands of Government supporters. The small fry in  the Interior, almost depending for  their existence upon the pap that  comes from the Government, are almost unanimous tooters for the Government. There are, of course, a few  exceptions, but thc majority of thc  country press is gagged with pap."  We are not disposed to quarrel with  Bruce. We have said many nice  things about him in the past, and we  meant all of them, because we have  seen much to admire in his work. In  his unfair attitude in politics, however, he is not to be admired. Less  than a month, ago Bruce, himself,  said of Premier McBride and his policy (Oct. 30): "As for the conditions  in respect to the capitalization and  control of rates, Premier McBride assured me these would all be incorporated in the bill to be brought into  the Legislature giving effect to the  agreement. The memorandum of the  agreement is merely a skeleton or  basis of the agreement to be prepared  t  by act of the Legislature. D. Mann  came armed with av resolution of his  board of directors authorizing him to  close and sign an agreement, on. the  spot, but the Government, wisely, I  think, decided to take time to thoroughly thresh out the details with  the electorate and the Legislature before binding itself, except on the general lines to which both the C. N. R.  and the Government are now committed."  Again, (Oct. 30): "My own impression is that they (the C. N. R.) will  not build without the guarantee, and  that the risk of indefinitely hanging  up the building of. the line is too  great to-take any chances by defeating the government's policy."  =IHBrucc=v������������������as=reasonable^in^=his=de-  ductions a month ago, he is most  unreasonable in his deductions now.  And, too, the people of the Province  are convinced that Premier McBride  and his ministers and party, have  the interests of the Province quite  as much at heart as Bruce or any  other calamity howler; and the people are quite as capable of knowing  what they want as Bruce can be.  Bruce's reference to thc country  press is "that "of a sap-head. The  country press of B. C. is freer from  pap-moulded opinion than the press  of the cities, and we beiicve the people have more faith in the country  press than in thc city press. However this may be, Bruce makes a contemptible charge against his compeers  and one as uncalled for as it is unfounded.  ooo  HE splendid victory won by  Hon. Price Ellison at the polls  last Thursday was not un-  looked for, though few would have  dared to place the majority so high.  It was cruel that so good a man as  Mayor DeHart should be sacrificed,  and in the sacrifice should lose his  deposit. But the verdict of the people was clear long before Mr. DeHart  was nominated, and one must have  been politically blind not to have  seen it. Hon. Price Ellison will serve  the Okanagan as faithfully as he ever,  has. We do not anticipate that more  will be asked of him. And we believe  we shall be as proud of him as Minister of Lands and Works as we have  been of him as member,  ooo  REMIER M'BRIDE has the opportunity of a life-time to let  the people of Canada see what  sort of metal he has in him. A majority such as he has received would  be a calamity with a weak leader at  the head of affairs. But with a man  as strong as Premier McBride has  shown himself to be in the^ past, it  affords him;every opportunity and no  excuse for not giving the country a  clean, wise, untrammeled'administration. This we believe Premier McBride, will do. The next four years  of his life will prove the man. Hi  must make good. The responsibility  is great. If he fails, the country will  come down upon him like a thunderbolt. We believe he will make good.  The country believes he will make  good. The province is back of him.  It asks no more. But it demands  this. Anything but a square deal In.  all matters affecting the interests of  the province, would not be listened  to for a moment. Premier McBride  aud his ministers know this. They  ���������������������������are prepared to carry out their part  of the contract. We see no reason  for anyone to believe otherwise. The  .calamity. tooters=should=crawUdown;=  move back; get ofl the earth.  I  T  ooo  N his address in the Presbyterian  church a few Sundays ago, Rev.  Campbell   delivered   a   powerful  message to the people of Enderby in  particular   and   British Columbia in  general.   It   was    a   sermon dealing  with  the  prevailing laxity in Christian labor and  church  workers,  who  he said seemed to place-a-wrong construction upon the teaching of Christ,  and were more earnest in seeking to  find   personal   comfort   in   their religion than to   give comfort to others.   British Columbia had the name,  ho said,    of   being   extremely liberal  when it came to helping British Columbia.   And ho    was sorry to confess that in Christian work in Enderby the same spirit was altogether too  prominent.     Wc  had  been  extremely  fortunate in receiving valuable assistance from the outside, all of which  we very liberally received, but in,the  matter of giving, he feared the people were   decidedly   slow.     We have  been too   anxious    that    the church  shall dominate our council and parliament,  and too little interested in  winning the honor and esteem of our  fellows by    meeting them as men to  men, and working with them for the  good of all.     When   we   do this, he  said, there will be no question of the  church dominating    our   community,  our   council   nor     our   parliament.  Church    domination   is    worse   than  nothing if the spirit of fellowship and  the good of all be not back of it.  ooo  It is not a small thing to be on  the losing side, and when our fellow  citizen, J. F. Johnson, appeared as a  candidate on the Socialist ticket, he  knew what his fate would be. But  he made the race, and made it well.  Enderby gave him the largest vote  that has ever been cast here for his  party, which is something from which  Mr. Johnson should take no little  pride.  Last Monday the pupils in the principal's room had a written examination in spelling, . the. ground covered  embracing all. tlie spellings "they-have  had: during the last two months.   It.  should "be    remembered"  by .parents ,  that a- low standing in these weekly '  examinations is much more frequent- ,  ly due to indolence'  than-to lack)of..  ability.

We had hoped to be _able to give  complete" and corrected election rev  turns this week, but no mails have  been received from the West since  Monday, and, while the general result was known at that time, the returns were incomplete.

"What would you think of a man  who, because his dinner wasn't  ready within a fraction of the appointed time, rushed upstairs with  the carving-knife, ripped the lining out of his wife's new gown,  and then left the dining table implement sticking in the crown of  her new Merry Widow . You would  scarcely credit it. Yet I have evidence hero which proves that the  cct has been committed by several  husbands, and with even, less provocation than a late meal.  "Here is another example.    The  caso came inlo the courts some time  Ago.    This 'man' was married to a  charming, but seemingly weak, little  woman,   who  never  made any  complaint however  badly she was  tieated.   The husband made life a  ..burden for her, but as   she never  ���������������������������protested  hc    thought,  1 suppose,  that she didn't suffer sufficiently.  _o one day,  when hc found a hair  in the soup or a fly on thc butter  ���������������������������I forget which���������������������������he sought to ex-  jprcss his displeasure  by taking a  kitten on   which  the littlo  woman  had lavished what remained of her  ���������������������������affection, tying a string to its neck,  and suspending it from the' chandelier.  "The patient wife did not at first  ���������������������������realize  what  was  happening,   but  when  thc  ball of  -fluff    began  to  (writhe in  the throes of strangulation    all    her    latent    spirit    was  .roused,  and in a frenzy of long-  .lippresscd revolt she first cut down  the animal and then threw everything at her husband that she could  lay  her hands on.

Three  .... .months later, she   obtained.her divorce.  did a little thinking and then decided to quit. Ho called a truce,  and has never sinco thrown as  much as a feather duster at his better half. The plan adopted by this  wise woman should be copied by  every wife who is subjected to similar persecution."  A REAL COFIIN-SFIIP  Steamship Shinio.fi Carried Nearly  8,000 Dead Passengers.  The largest shipload of passengers that- ever sailed from New  York on one steamer left recently  on_board the Shimosa, bound-for  China. Although the Shimosa is  by no means a large ship, she carried on this trip nearly 8,000 passengers.    ������������������  The 8,000 passengers, however,  did not complain about the overcrowding. And this for a very simple reason���������������������������they were dead. Each  in his coffin they were packed between decks.  The Chinese have a firm belief  that if they are not buried in their  native soil their chances of reach-:  ing their heaven are very small. Of  course, if he can, . Chinaman always prefers to die in his own  country. But if this is impossible,  he must at least be buried there.  So thc bodies of Chinamen in all  parts of the world- are finally laid  !o rest in China.  During hip lifetime, "John Chinaman" abroad pays a small,, sum  regularly to a society which guarantees him burial at home. Then  he knows that, w-hen the er/_ comes  to him, although he may be temporarily laid in alien soil, his remains  will ultimately be disinterred and  borne back to his fatherland.  In fulfilment of another Chinese  belief, beside each body there reposes" in the coffin a substantial  meal of roast pork, chicken, and  rice- This is so that John may not  .set out on his last journey without due provision.  ~" '   '      "      "    M ���������������������������-������������������������������������������������������.���������������������������'   ���������������������������  WHERE 1  He was a burly  navvy and   she  Irs  no  less  burly  wife,   and  they  completion  ere Londoners and visitors to  Metropolis are able to view one of  tho finest monuments in thc  world. Altogether it will cost . 1,-  250,000, and 350 tons of marble  will have been used in the construction of figures and statuettes which  go to make up this memorial to  "The Great White Queen."  The figure of her late Majesty  will be no less than iSj/n feet in  height, and will depict her dressed  in robes of state, sitting enthroned  with orb and sceptre. All the  world was ransacked for a 70-ton  block of flawless marble from which'  thc statute might be carved. But  such a block could not be obtained,  and consequently Mr. Thomas  Brock, the famous sculptor, has  been compelled to use several smaller blocks, the largest of which  weighs twenty-five tons.  THE' ALBERT MEMORIAL.  The Queen Victoria Memorial is  probably the most costly in thc  kingdom, although the famous Albert Memorial must have cost between $2,000,000 and .$2,500,000.  The cost���������������������������provided by public subscription���������������������������was given at -.000,000,  but it is asserted that Queen Victoria's private contribution exceeded that amount. The Albert  Hall is really part of the Albert  Memorial, for it was after the Exhibition of 1S51 that Prince Albert  proposed thc erection of a great  hall of music, and when he had  passed away a national subscription  was raised to carry out his wish,  $1,000,000 being obtained.  A grateful nation, too, subscribed $225,000 for the erection of th������������������  Nelson Column in Trafalgar  Square, while the fact should not  be overlooked . mt every penny of  thc $50,000 spent on the statue of  Achilles in Hyde Park was raised  by the women of England.  " TO A SOLDIER'S MEMORY.  And this was not the only honor  done to the memory of Wellington.

Tlie modern dentist now makes  gold inlays as well as inlays of porcelain.  In making an ordinary gold filling the cavity in thc tooth is made  larger within than at its opening,  the walls thus contracting helping  to hold the filling in. Thc cavity  for . gold inlay must, of course,  be at least as large at the opening  as at any interior point, for the inlay is in.a solid block.  There may be various reasons  for putting inlo a tooth a gold inlay instead of a filling mallctcd in.  For one reason it may be that tlie  walls of the tooth arc too frail to  stand the mallcting without danger of breaking, or it may be that  the gold inlay is to go into a back,  grinding tooth, ^yhere a malleted  filling would not serve the purpose.

In Washington Park, Washington, there is a huge obelisk, 555  feet high, in memory of _ the first  President of the Republic. It is  built of great blocks of crystal  marble, and was not completed until 18S5. Within tho monument is  an elevator and also an iron stairway of 900 steps. This, the highest stone structure in the world,  cost $1,200,000.  The American stah.e, however,  which never fails to impress the  visitor to thc States is that in New  York Harbor representing Liberty  Enlightening the World. The figure  stands upon a pedestal that is 154  feet 10 inches high, and is itself  151 feet 1 inch in height. In the  upraised right hand is a torch  lighted by electricity. The pedestal and statue cost over $1,000,000.  mal  if it were otherwise it could not  bo worked; a gold inlay can be alloyed to make it of a degree of  'hardness sufficient to withstand  use.  Porcelain inlays are commonly  set in front teeth, where they do  not show as a gold filling -would-  The porcelain powders of which  such inlays are made are produced  in a practically endless variety of  shades, which can be further varied by combination.  It is possible to make a porcelain  inlay that will match the surrounding tooth so perfectly that except  upon the closest inspection it is impossible to tell whero thc tooth  leaves oft* and the inlay begins.  Porcelain inlays, which arc moulded into shape from the plastic material and then baked, may bo set  ir. grinding teeth, but this is not  commonly done. A porcelain inlay  that might not break if stepped on  might break in a grinding tooth in  use.  A perfect amalgam, filling will  wear as well and as long as thc  tooth in which it is set, but amalgam discolors in time, and there  are persons who will not have an  amalgam filling even in a back  tooth, out of sight. For these people for a grinding tooth gold inlays are made.  In whatever sort of tooth the gold  inlay is to bo placed, the cavity  when drilled out is furrowed down  its sides within with little grooves,  into which correspondng mouldings  on the inlay will .fit, this to hold  the inlay more securely in place  and the better to enable it to..withstand pressure applied ..to it from  various directions, and with the  cavity finished a form or pattern is  taken of it in wax. Into one end.  of this little form or pattern in wax  ir. thrust a delicate wire, by which  it can be handled without handling  the form itself, and then this pattern is set in a tiny flask, and  around it, as in a foun-'lry the moulders pack sand around patterns in  making moulds in bigger flasks,  plaster is packed.  When, this tiny mould containing  thc wax pattern for the inlay has  hardened the wire is drawn out of  the pattern and the wax is melted  -out. of=-'thc=JTiold,=-and^Uicn=thcKe=is=  the mould ready for the casting,  which is done by the aid of various  special appliances made for the purpose. Then you break the little  plaster mould and there, released,  you-have the..gold inlay.  It is set into place with ccm,."'  which after an hour or two in  which to harden holds the inlay  firmly and securely anchored. In  due time later the dentist will grind  it down around to make it perfectly flush with tho surrounding tooth  surface and polish it.  Travelling   Teacher.   '-.Who' Form  Clubs and Deliver lectures      l  "In order to promte agricultural interest the kingdom of Bavaria  has established agricultural -schools  in almost every town," says Franz  J. Hofauer of Munich,  Germany. :  "Thcso schools are in charge of  teachers who in addition to an academic education must be versed ia  botany, geology, chemistry, physics,'  zoology and natural history.    At a.  time when nothing is doing in tho  fields,  from November    to March,  these schools are    open,  and  tho  peasants for a nominal fee can at-,  tend courses on cultivation and fer-1  tilization of the soil, thc proper rotation of cr^ps on the same land/  the best sources for good seeds, ir-.  rigation and the  raising of stock.1  'Thety aro made acquainted    v.itli  improvements and  new inventions'  in    agricultural    implements,    the  adoption of whicli    can be recommended.   They are taught the nidi-'  ments of    bookkeeping and  other  commercial knowledge essential for  tho up to date farmer.  "In the spring after these farmers have returned to their work in  the fields it becomes the duty of the  teachers who instructed them during the winter to travel from county to county and to act as advisers  to the farmers. Much good results  from the travels of these teachers.  By practical suggestion to the farmers they induce them to mako valuable improvements in the cultivation of their farms.  "The wandering teacher helps to  form ^ co-operative clubs for the  joint interests'of a number of farmers in one district. From time to  time thc teacher has to lecture in  these clubs on any su'bject which  might prove of interest to the members. _ The..c visits and lectures to  the different districts arc entirely  free to thc people, sinco the State  assumes all expenses. There is  probably no other country in the  world in which so much is done by  the_ State for its rural inhabitants  ac is the case in Bavaria. Other  German States have these agricultural schools, but their teachers  arc not sent.in such' a practical  way direct to the places where they  can dp the most good, as is done in  Bavaria. The results of this com- ���������������������������  mendablc care have ben very gratifying." \  .  ���������������������������. *   FISHES WITH ITS WINGS.   *   HE CERTAINLY SCORED.  An ironworker, having had the  worst of an argument with a friend,  decided to get even with him.  Waiting, therefore, until his enemy had retired to rest one night,  he approached his street door, and  knocked loudly in order to wake  him. Opening the bedroom window, the other hurriedly inquired  what the noise was all about.  "Why," replied the outside one,  "one of your windows is wide  open."  "Which one?"  "Why, the one you have your  head through," chuckled the other,  as he went away, satisfied with the  success of his-plot.

The bird remained motionless, and-  kept itseyes closed as if in sleep.  It remained in this position for a  quarter of an hour, when sudden-  ly closing its wings and straightening its feathers it stepped out on  the bank. Here it shook itself several times, whereupon a quantity ol  small fishes fell out of its wings  and from amid its1 feathers. These  thc bird-immcdiately picked up an .-  swallowed.

Fresh Cucumbers in Winter. ���������������������������  Fill glass jars with cucumbers  slightly seasoned with salt- Cover  with water! Remove bubbles by  passing a fork through them. Put  tops on jars and stand upside down  to test for leakage. When put up  this way cucumbers taste as fresh  a? when gathered from thc vines.  Baked Potatoes.���������������������������Do not have  the oven too hot for baked potatoes. If done in a moderate oven  for a longer time they will cook  more evenly. Pricking the small  ends of ^a potato with a fork before  putting in the oven will keep the  skin . from bursting. A German  cook noted for her based potatoes  washes them carefully, dries them,  and then rubs the skin with a  greased paper and bakes in the  usual way. A pleasant variety of  baked potatoes is to peel them,  rub them over with a greased paper dipped in butter, and bake in  the ordinary way.  To Can Tomatoes Whole.���������������������������Select  tomatoes of equal size which will  easily slip into a half gallon fruit  jar. If a tomato is too large the  seeds will squeezo out and spoil the  appearance of the canned fruit.  Have the jar setting in a pail which  l-.as a little hot water in it. Scald  and peel the tomatoes and drop  into the jar until full. Pour boiling water into the jar until it runs  over enough to take every bubble  out- Seal and let stand in the hot  water until cold. These ' can be  sliced as nicely as fresh tomatoes  and seasoned when served. Will  keep for years.  To Preserve Cucumbers. ��������������������������� Take  small cucumbers and slice; put salt  en this and let stand over night;  then put layer of cucumber and  sprinkle with black and white mustard and celery seed, and a- tablespoonful of olive oil and half a cupful of" vinegar.    Follow-this pro-  - cess until ,the jar is full.   Then'put  away and use when cold.  Uncooked Chilli Sauce.���������������������������One-half  peck of   tomatoes - chopped, three  stalks celery cut fine, one cupful of  grated  horseradish,  two  red peppers and one cupful of onions chopped fine, one small cupful of .salt,  one cupful each of black and white  mustard seed, two teaspoonfuls of  cinnamon, one teaspoonful cloves,  . one teaspoonful of mace, one cupful of white Fugar and one quart  of cider vinegar.   Stir all   well together, do not cook and keep sealed  tight._  The feature of this sauce is  that it retains   the   flavor of the  fresh tomatoes, and  sound tomatoes   are  keep as well as the  sauce.  - Butterscotch. ���������������������������Three   cupfuls  white ��������������������������� sugar,    one-half    cupful of  water, one-half cupful of. vinegar,  one tablespoonful of butter, eight  drops of extract of lemon.

Strain through a cloth and  let stand until cool.   Then pour the  gelatin over some raisins, sliced oranges, and bananas and set away  in thc refrigerator until it becomes  hardened,  which   will   take from  four to five hours.   To serve: Take  several  large naval oranges,   using one'for each person to be served  and cut off about one-third of each  orange, remove the inside carefully so as not to break th������������������ rind, then  place the rinds in   a   pan of ice-  water u.itil they become firm. When  firm enough remove from the water  and fill each one with the prepared gelatin, over which put whipped  cream, being careful to allq.w a lit-  1 le of the   pink    gelatin to peep  through.    Place a few maraschino  cherries on top- of   the whipped  cream.   Place some nice, crisp lettuce leaves on the fruit plates, set  the prepared oranges on the leaves,  and lay a few cherries around on  the green leaves, also a small slice  or two of orange.

A Remedy Which Assists Hatura  Makes a Cure Which is Permanent as This Case Mm,  Every sufferer from rheumatism  wants to bo   cured    and    to stay  cured.    The prospect   of the   frequent return of thc trouble is not-  attractive to anybody who has gone  through^ one siege.      Most treatments aim simply to "keep down"  the rheumatic poisons in the blood.  The tonic treatment by Dr.   Wil-.  Hams' Pink Pills    has   proved by-  hundreds of cures that it builds- up  the blood to a point "that enable!  it to cast out these poisons through  the regular channels of excretion���������������������������  the bowels," the., kidneys   and the  skin.   When this is done the rheumatism is permanently cured, and  as long as the blood is kept pur .  and rich the patient will be freo- -  from " rheumatism.-    Mr.    Tho ma _  McNeil, Richibucto, _.. B., says:���������������������������. ���������������������������  "Permit me to' bear testimony t_   .  the worth of   Dr. Williams' Pink'  Pills as a cure for   acute rheum*-   ,  tis ra.   My 9on, Frederick, was subject to this painful trouble for.a  period of eight or ten years, and  during this time periodical attacks  would regularly occur.   His last at* _s  tack was a most Eevere one, and ���������������������������  th������������������ pains were excruciating in the'  .extreme, shooting through the var������������������-  ous-parts of the body to such-an  extent that even the- approach ,of  any person would cause him to cry  out with fear, and he had rest nei- ;  ther day or night.

Chas. W. Little  The elections arc over. It was a  tremendous victory for Premier McBride���������������������������something never before heard  of in British Columbia histovy, if,  indeed, in the history of Canada. The  Opposition was all but annihilated���������������������������  only two Liberals and two Socialists  elected. Of the 42 members in the  Legislature, 38 are Conservative. If  ever a leader had the endorsement of  the people, that loader is Premier McBride. It is needless to ask why and  how it happened. It happened; that  is enough. The people of British Columbia have spoken. They are a people pronounced in their wishes, find,  right or wrong, when they speak the  world knows what they want.. In the  present case, they have signSeii that  they want railroads, and i\ i-icgies-  sive public policy,���������������������������they want tl.is  great country opened up, and our resources developed. They want n.cre  people, more wealth, more industries,  and they believe Premier Mo".-ide is  the man who will, see vhat v e ^et  them.  Premier McBride is the one man in  British Columbia politics that the  people have learned to trust. He is  known. He has made good, and the  people are prepared. to trust him,  even to the extreme of wisdom. In  a broader, fuller sense, Premier McBride is the people of British Columbia. Liberals, Conservatives and Socialists, one and all look to Mm as  their medium; the man through  whom they speak and act. He voices  the best in our public life, and rings  true of the West. He is British Columbia, and we arc proud of him.  Now that the elections are over,  and the Premier given the greatest  majority that any premier ever got,  we look to him to proceed at once in  his determination to get for the province the best railway deal possible.  the Province says, local option was  defeated by at least 1200 votes. The  total vote was in round numbers,  5,400 for and 4,700 against. The vote  of the province was about ��������������������������� on the  same proportion, indicating that the  people who voted on the proposition  are little more than equally divided  on the subject, and others, who did  not vote, do not care enough about  it to say where they stand.  The local option plebescite just  voted on is not, in itself, a local option law, but a law, or making way  for a law, giving municipalities the  privilege to vote for such a local  measure. To have carried the plebescite would not necessarily have been  a show of strength, for many might  have favored the giving of such a  privilege to municipalities who would  not vote for the law to be applied  locally. However, thc small majority in favor of the passage of such a  law would not indicate that the desire for local option is as strong as  its advocates have been led to believe. However strong one's feelings  may be in the matter, it is not just  to accuse the Government of showing  unfairness in the manner of submitting the question. Surely, if the law  is much .desired, it should not be  difficult for its advocates to marshal  at least 50 per cent of the voting  strength of the province. There is a  feeling, and it is not small, that the  present law regulating the sale of  liquor is not properly enforced, and  if it were much of the abuse complained of would be overcome, and  while this feeling prevails, it is not  much use asking for more laws���������������������������laws  that if as poorly enforced as the law  we now have, would have a tendency  to increase the evil rather than diminish it.

C,    Nov.    27.���������������������������"I am  deeply���������������������������very    deeply���������������������������grateful to the  people of   British   Columbia for the  recognition    which    the    Government  and my policy   have   received at the  polls. The result did not come wholly  as a surprise,   for    I   was convinced  from the indications that the attorney-general and I met with all  over  the country during the tour, that it  would be virtually a clean sweep for  the . Conservative   policy . in   British j (Oct-  Columbia.    The   people    of the Province have shown    unreservedly their  confidence in the    proposals to bring  in   the   Canadian   Northern   railway  line, and to extend thc Kettle River  Valley railway's operations.  "Between now   and   the session of  the Legislature, which, it is expected,  will open on   January   20th, no time   by act of the Legislature  Will be lost   in   concluding   the final  agreements to   be   submitted to parliament, containing specifically all of  the' terms   that   I have promised to  the people.    The  railway legislation  will have first place in the sessional  programme   and   the    bills    will   be  passed as expeditiously as possible.  . '."This may be taken as the commencement by this government of a  very substantial and progressive policy of development by railway'building. And I want especially to thank  the Conservative press throughout  the Province; all the speakers who  _iave-assisted^uponH;-_e-plat_on_^dur-=  ing the just-ended campaign; the  workers, whose unremittent industry  has so largely contributed to success;  and, lastly, I want to acknowledge  to the country the efficient and valuable services rendered during the  campaign by my colleague, the Hon.  W. J. Bowser. No leader could have  a more faithful and energetic lieutenant than I possess in the attorney-  general.  "Encouraged and supported by" the  strongly expressed confidence of the  people, I hope to so carry on. the  affairs of British Columbia as to secure for the Province the fullest and  largest measure of substantial progress and prosperity.  RICHARD M'BRIDE."

The memorandum of the  agreement is merely a skeleton or  basis of the agreement to be prepared  D. Mann  came armed with a resolution of his  board of directors authorizing him to  close and sign an agreement on the  spot, but the Government, wisely, I  think, decided to take time to thoroughly thresh out the details with  the electorate and the Legislature before binding itself, except on the general lines to which both the C. N. R.  and thc Government are now committed."  Again, (Oct. 30): "My own impression is that they (the C. N.

Enderby Trading Co. Ltd.  Leaders in General Merchandise and Supplies  o  SATISFIED TO  QUIT  LOCAL OPTION DEFEATED  British Columbia is British Columbia. There is -something in tlie atmosphere that resents anything that  savors of curtailing one's liberty.  The defeat of the proposed local option legislation is indicative of this  one thing, that while the people as a  whole endorse all good things tending to improve the mental and moral  conditions of the province, they look  with disfavor upon any legislation  tending to curtail man's liberty. No  other construction can be placed upon the result of the local option plebescite. It even went out of the fair  Okanagan lost, and, of course, when  it came to thc mining country, and  the cities, it was sure to be snowed  under. The total vote is not in at  the present writing, but its defeat is  certain. In the Okanagan it had but  1036 votes cast in its favor, and 791  against it. The total vote of the  Valley was 2091, hence, to carry local  option required 104G. Complete returns may change these figure some,  but not   materially.

WINTER   FLOWERS  Everyone, appreciates the beauty of  flowering bulbs in the fall and winter  but so many fail to prepare for the  future in time. It is a very easy  matter to have the house full of  bloom throughout the dull season,  and every lover of flowers should appreciate this fact. Particular attention is drawn to this matter in the  advertising of M. J. Henry, the pioneer nurseryman of Vancouver, and  all should avail themselves of the  opportunity to get bulbs underway  before the winter sets in in earnest.  BAPTIST MISSIONS  Rev. H. G.

Mrs. Patch, seated by the window, delivered herself of an indiug-  nant sniff, and intimated her conviction that, of all the inipidcnt  3'oung 'nssics that ever lived, that  there Hani .e was tho very worst!  "What have you been doing to  her?" queried thc elder Miss l'atch,  taking  off  her  hat.  Miss Annie rose from her chair,  and, gracefully crooking her right  arm, walked inincingly across tho  room in a fashion intended to represent the action of a bridegroom  leading his bride away from the altar.  "We're going . to havo a new  pa!" said the sprightly girl, -when  her progress was interfered with  the  wall.  '"What!" exclaimed her sister,  staring at her in blank amazement.  "I say we're going to have a .new  pa," repeated Annie, resuming her  seat, and folding her arms with a  truculent flourish. "She"���������������������������indicating her mother by a littlo,jerk of  her head���������������������������"has made all the necessary arrangements."  "Why, mother," said her elder  daughter, in a tone of horror, "you  don't rcallv'mean" to sav that it's  true?"  "True?" cried Mrs. Patch hotly.  "Of course it's true! Why  shouldn't it he?"  Miss Mary Patch, without replying, gazed at- her parent fixedly for  a while.  "Who is it. mother?" she said at  last. _  "Find out!" srapped Mrs. Patch.  "That's just what I'm trying to  do," answered Mary, with a sarcastic smile- "Surely it isn't that  wretched little Hinks 1"  Mrs. Patch, without deigning to  reply, marched out of the room.  The two girls stared at one another in disgust for a while, and  then the younger one expressed the  opinion that her sister's shot at the  gentleman's identity had hit tho  mark.  "I've often wondered why he  came hanging about here such a  lot." she added.  "Well, so have 1," said Mary;  "although, to tell vou Lhe truth,  I_I ������������������������������������������������������'  "You what?" quo-ied Annie, as  she  hesitated.  "I thought hc was coming after  me," she confessed, with a slight  accession of color. "Thc nasty,  blushing, stammering, fat little  ���������������������������wretch !"  She broke off suddenly, walked to  thc window, and gazed out at tho  darkening street with an air of deep  abstraction.  Then suddenly she uttered an cx-  ciamation of annoyance, and began  tinued, "how sweet it would be if  only on<_ could spread one's wings  and fly after it!"  "It would indeed," agreed Mr.  Hinks.  "I often feel like that," proceeded Miss Patch, after giving vent to  a tiny, fluttering sigh. "Mother  says I'm too romantic, but I dare  say she was the same when she was  my age. A re you romantic, Mr-  Hinks?"  "I���������������������������I 'ardly know,' 'stammered  Mr. Hinks nervously.  "Oh, it's you. is it?" said Mrs.  Patch, entering the room, with a  tablecloth tucked under one arm,  and a tray loaded with supper materials in her hands. "I thought  .1 lenoo the knock!"  She was apparently on the point  of saying something else; hut,  catching sight of her elder daughter's attitude, she checked herself  .and compressed her lips.  Miss Patch, with a knee clasped  between he-'' interlaced fingers, was  eyeing Mr. Hinks with a look of  rapt admiration.  "P'r'aps you'll 'elp me with these  'ere supper things!" snapped her  mother, after a momentary pause.  "Now, now, be careful !" she continued sharply, as thc girl essayed  tc take the tray, from her with one  hand. "Do you want to let the  'ole blessed lot down?"  "I wasn't thinking what I was  doing," apologized Mary, with an  air of detachment.  "You very rarely are!" declared7  her  mother,   with  great  tartness.  "Now,  than,  where arc you a-going to with ihat tray?"  The absent-minded Mary, well on  her way towards the kitchen, turned back with a little laugh.  ������������������������������������������������������ "I don't know what's wrong with  me to-night," she remarked. "I  was thinking we'd finished supper."'  "Annie," commanded Mrs.  Patch, "you come 'ere and 'elp me.  This sister of yourn has gone  loony!"  "No, I haven't," said Miss Patch  as she relinquished the tray to the  younger girl.    "I'm only���������������������������'7"  "Only what?" inquired her mother disagreeably, as she came to  a halt.  "Oh, nothing!" she answered,  down and heaving another  sigt.  She looked coyly at Mr. Hinks,  smiled confidentially, and said t-o  hini:  "I saw you as I  to-night."  "Did you?" replied Mr. Hinks,  with a note of awakening tenderness in his voice.  "You didn't see me, though,"  continued Miss Patch reproachful-  said Miss: Patch, rising to her feet  with almost unmaidenly alacrity.  "I���������������������������I don't care much about it,"  replied tlie gentleman hastily. "I  'ad tea rather late!"  "Then if mother doesn't mind���������������������������"  began Miss Patch demurely.  The younger Miss Patch looked  at her mother in mock sympathy as  the front door closed with a gentle  slam, and remarked that it was too  ���������������������������bad of Mary.  "What's too bad?" replied Mrs.  Patch, blowing thoughtfully at a  steaming cup of cocoa.-  "Why, going on with him liko  that!" said Annie, wrestling with  a grin.  "Is it?" said Mrs. Patch abstractedly, as she took a scries of  noisy sips.  "I suppose you won't have any  more to do with him after this?"  continued Annie.  "'Im? What, Hinks.?" said Mrs.  Patch, with the air of one coming  suddenly out of a brown study.  "And why nob?"  Thc astounded Annie uttered a  gasp of surprise, a,nd sat staring  in open-mouthed silence at her mother.  "What's it got to do with me?"  continued Mrs. Patch. _ "It's no  business of mine, i.s it, if she likes  to make a fool of him?"

Japan's belief in the virtues of a  meat diet, which has tlaken the  head of the Japanese Government  Cattle-breeding Department to  England to purchase stock cattle,  has aro'uscd the indignation of  Bi-iti&h vcbetarians, is part of the  movement for tho Europeaniza-  tion of .the land of thc Rising Sun.

"Already many wealthy Japanese  have two houses, often side by side,  a Japanese house in which they  live as their fathers lived, and a  European house in which their  children are fed, educated, and  clothed in European fashion.

Chinese procedure... *in_."_criminal  matters is distinctly interesting.  Every man is held responsible for  any crime hc has personally committed ; but, ir he prefers it, the  criminal can lake his punishment  liy proxy. If a man commits a  murder, and Hies the country, no  serious attempt is made to pursuo  him. Instead, the law oomes down  on any convcniient member of his  family who has remained in tho  neighborhood, and punishes that  .member in lieu of the real culprit.  To Western ways of thinking, this  may appear rather an old proceeding; but, as the Chinese religion  inflicts everlasting torments on the  souh of the mail who deserts his  family in the hour of need, the system is not without; its merits.  .Anyway, the scheme works well in  practice, and the fugitive is generally sufficiently honorable to return in time. - -  THE MINER'S V.

Many of his patrons look upon him as a  man gifted with some strange, mysterious  power, but he modestly asserts that what  tie accomplishes-is due alone to, an under-  Handing of natural laws.

"How's your husband now?"  - "Poor man, he's laid up at home  with acute rheumatism.

Classify Them According to Their  Outlines.  In judging the character from the  face it is well, first of all, to understand that physiognomists can  only reveal tendency; they cannot  foretell positive actions.  To read faces tho best method is  ic begin by classifying them according to their outlines, as certain  characteristics are ninety-nine  times out of a hundred tho accompaniment of cjv.h class.  According to the text-books, women with thc perfectly oval face  aro tall and of elegant figure, generally, but not always, dark-eyed,  onergetic, and possess strong individual characteristics. They arc  firm and self-reliant, and usually  constant in friendship and love.  They are often leaders, and arc  enthusiasts apt to be carried  away by the power of their own imagination. Frequently thc oval-  faced woman becomes an actress of  great renown. For example, Bernhardt, Duse, and Mary Anderson.  When th������������������ face describes a circle  there is corresponding breadth and  thickness of limbs and body. The  complexion is usually florid and the  hair and coloring light brown, not  often dark, especially the skin.  Round-faced women may be usually read as versatile, impulsive, ardent, and with great elasticity of  spirits. - The round-faced woman is  more inclined to be fickle than her  sister of the oval contour.  Where you see a woman with a  face which forms a perfect round  make a mental note to this effect:  A- cheerful, loving, and amiable  nature, not much persistence, apt  to be brilliant rather than thorough, companionable, and unselfish.  The pyriform face is commonly  called pear, shaped because its outlines do resemble the shape ofa  pear. Nine out of ten women with  pear-shaped faces have high foreheads, pale complexions, and delicately .chiselled features." They are  rarely strong" women physically,  often have delicate chests and slender, stem-like necks-^ They generally have shining eyes and an abundance of soft, fine, silky hair. They  are mentally very alert, quick and  ne vous, acutely sensitive. This  is the literary, artistic, and poetic  type. ." ',--.  Women with the temperament  belonging to the pyriform face are  rarely, willing to settle .down to the  jcys of domesticity. They belong  to the_public .and ,to the world of  art and poetry.  rtvi,Jc/Aric\, uintufo  Inflammation of  th Ki. ueys, of the  Bladder, of tho  Bowels, of tho  Lungs, Soro Throat,  Bronchitis, Difficult  Breathing, Croup, Catarrh, Influenza, Headache, Toothache, Nou-  ralglt.

Was a  Death Trap for Lodgers.    ������������������  One of the most sensational cases which Vienna has ever known has  been brought to light by the arrest  of Frau Kobovsky on suspicion of  having committed five murders.  Frau Kobovsky, who is a widow  forty-three ~years~of age, kept a  boarding house. Two of her lodgers died in the house four years  ago, and she was sentenced to two  years' imprisonment for stealing  'their., property. _When_she_came  HUNTING FOR  BIG CAME.  The Highlands of Ontario is an ideal  spot for thc sportsman during the open  hunting season for big game. In the  Temagami region nioooe are plentiful and  may be killed during the period from  October 16th to November 15th. This  territory is a'forest preserve of vast expanse, and in addition to being the hunter's ������������������paradise, its waters abound with  game fish of many species. The home of  the red deer is located somewhat to the  south of Temagami, particularly in the  districts known as "Muskoka Lakes."  "Lake of Bays," "Maganetawan River."  "Lake Nipissing." ana "Kawartha' Lakes'  territories.  Write to J. D. McDonald, District  Passenger Agent, Toronto, for a copy of  "Haunts of Fish and Game," issued by the  Grand Trunk Railway System which  fully describes the hunting territories  reached by this - line, giving game laws,  maps and all information.

Snowslides  and High Water  This unhappy combination prevented  the arrival of the English Grand Opera  Singers, Tuesday morning, and the  muBic lovers of Enderby and vicinity  were cheated out of the Big musical  event of the season. C. P. Walker, of  Winnipeg, is sending some very fine  entertainments through the west, and  the English opera singers are One of  the best. A splendid advance sale had  been made, and everything pointed to a  big house. But a snowslide and high  water has demoralized traffic on the C.  P. R. and no trains are expected from  Vancouver for three days. The opera  singers were tied up at Vancouver. A  despatch was sent from Vancouver on  Monday, stating that the company  would not be able to get through, but  the wires were down and the despatch  did not reach Enderby until 7 o'clock  Tuesday evening. By this time the  performance had already been cancelled by Mr. Reeves.  To offset the disappointment, we are  to be given "As You Like It," next  Monday evening, Dec. 6th.  Shakespeare's greatest comedy, "As  You Like It," is to be given in Enderby by a splendid company. To all  lovers of the best in drama it will  indeed be a welcome announcement  which has just been made by Mr.  A. Reeves, to the effect that Mr. G.  P. Walker, of Winnipeg, will send his  elaborate production of "As You  Like It," the most delightful of all  of Shakespeare's comedies, to Enderby. The company presenting the play  is composed almost entirely of English players, and a really intellectual  and finished performance is assured.  Mr. Walker has had two sets of scenery constructed for the play, one to  be used in such theatres as his own  beautiful Walker in Winnipeg, and  the other, an exact reproduction of  the larger set, to be used on the  smaller town stages, so that we  can be assured of a perfect scenic  equipment.

William Yule  a comedian well known to the theatre-goers of the west, has been especially engaged for the role of "Touchstone," a part in which he has no  superior among the comedians of today. As the world views the struggles of the modern poet and playwright, it is forced to stand in  breathless awe before the memory of  William Shakespeare, the inspired  genius whose equal will never be  known. In one play, "As You Like  It," the student may find a quotation suitable to almost any occasion,  and couched in such beautiful terms  that it rolls from the tongue like the  ripple of a moonbeam. Not only  does this comedy appeal to the literary minded, but as a comedy it interests the lover of the humorous, and  its story holds the attention of those  desiring dramatic situations and suspense. "As You Like It," is a play  for the teacher, for the student; a  play for the philosopher and the  amusement seeker. It pleases the  ear of the poet and delieht6 the eye  of the artist. It is the nearest play  to the ideal in drama that was ever  constructed. Seat sale at .Reeves'  drug store.  HOW PARTIES  STAND  MILK VS.

In other words, if  we had to pay 12c a quart for milk  such as the Glengarrack Dairy delivers in Enderby, it would be as  cheap in food value as beefsteak at  15c a pound.
