Enderby's first fruit packing school
is now in full operation. Instructor
Gibbs was on hand bright and early
Monday morning, and when the hour
for commencing arrived, everything
was in readiness for the pupils. The
full class of 15 started the work the
first day, and the attendance each
day has been most encouraging, and
the advancernent of those taking the
lessons has been most satisfactory to
Mr. Gibbs. The school is being held
in the unfinished Holtby block, corner
of Cliff and George street. The attendance of many outsiders from day
to clay indicates how interested all
are in the work, and the pupils themselves lose no opportunity to learn
the important points brought out in
the packing and repacking of the
fruit. The packing thus far has been
without wrappers, but to-morrow
wrappers will be used. Anyone desirous of   learning   how it is done is
game of   billiards    or pool.   He will | privileged   to   visit   the    school and
open for play to-night. . watch the operations.

Side-track, facilities in Enderby is
the one great question which must
sooner or later be settled by the railway company. At present thc loading of cars by the farmers shipping
hay, etc., is only possible under the
most difficult conditions. It has
been pointed out that there is ample
sidetrack room near the Vernon road
just south of the lumber yards, if
the railway could get track privileges
on the Indian reserve. Whether this
is the best plan or there are other
plans more practicable, wc do not
know, but it is certain, if the traffic
from Enderby continues to increase
as it has in the past year or two,
that new and more available sidetrack facilities will have to be provided.

The faster record the horse lakes the  better pleased should the owner be, foi  invariably the fast record increases the  sale price of a horse.

An  owner who is not prepared to nceeepl  'ho correct time of a race should not  race bis honce. There -will be found  uleiity of r.TTtiers willing to accept the  record if thev get the first money.  It is said, and on the best of author-  :ty, that horses were winniny heats  ���������������������������iround 2:.'"0 at Aomo of thc fall fairs  not moro than a thousand miles from  Toronto, and tke winners were kept cliff  ible to the 2:^") class. This was surely  -nppressinjr time with a vengeance.  Columns have been written in thp leading turf journals on the subject, but the  evil continues to exist, and probablv will  exist until the pnrent associations send  out presiding judges for the, different  meetings. Such me������������������ would be in no  way ���������������������������interested in any of the hoTses, nnd  woidd /keep matters in proper order.  As the winners do not tnlte records  by performances on ice. there is never  any attempt at concealing the time  made at the winter races, and this is as  it should be on turf.  Last winter we. saw a horse winning  hia  first  race  at  mile heats  which,  of  Myron Mcllenry, the "Wizard" and  ���������������������������.'Demon of the Homestretch," .appellations: that, have been .'attached to him,  nas'decided, to again cast in his lot with  the harness horses, and will be seen at  ihe races 'during .the .'season, of .Mill./  Mel I en rv when he was "in harness,"  was considered the world's greatest  driver. As a catch driver he "had no  equal. His hand was light and his  judgment the best, lie could rate a  horse as well without the aid of a timer  as most drivers can with a watch in  hand.  Such qualities could not fail to bring  I heir possessor to the  front, but after  a   number  of  years'  success   with   the  trotter and  pacer, Mcllenry joined  the  ranks of tnose who race thoroughbreds.  With  the  latter  he  was  not  very  successful���������������������������not (hat he was a  poor trainer,  for, on the contrary, he could  prepare a "galloper" to perfection, but he  was  not  fortunate enough  to get  hold  of good horses, and withoul a good horse  to work on, the best trainer in the hind  must fail.    During the summer of 1')()9  Mcllenry had a string of thoroughbreds,  but  not   one  of  the  lot   possessed  any  class   whatever;   still   he   managed   to  innke ends meet, and was able to ship  his outfit to Tampa,  Fla,, for last winter's racing.    There  the climax  eanie.  The stable failed utterly, aud Mac had  to come north.   -  It is probable that his experience with  the runners will be the means of keeping him at the branch of sport he never  should have left. He was a leadei  among the fraternity, was at the top ol  the ladder, and should have taken ad  vantage'oi' the position. However, a.^  he. will open a public training stable ai  Poughkeepsie, N.Y., and is sure of h  large patronage from owners of goon  horses, it will not be long before he i:-  again back at his accustomed place n.-  a trainer and raee driver. Mcllenry bai-  driven many great horses and won main  important stakes and purses, lt was h>  who drove i"an j'atch fo his world':-  record of l.ofiVj. and he. has alway-  maintained that he could have drivei  fhe son of doe Patchen at least tw<  seconds faster had it been advisable t<  do so at the time.

"Some friends of yours havo been

A couple of minutes and he was : lone,

"Ma foi," he said, "1 am glad they,

"But yes,-m'sieu, 'tis an evil night.

The stranger 'laughed, and he turned

weather   which   drove, me  jn   here   to

"Then I give thanks," said the old
innkeeper solemnly, "for trade is bad."
As he spoke the stranger" removed his
hat and cloak, and Simon stared at him
in amazement. There was no mistaking

light-blue eye, and curly hair. .

was lost; he looked a country youth, one
of many score that might have been

' "And iiom' Simon._," he said, "I am

He sat down again in the chair, and
Simon noticed that beneath his apron

said. ,
M'sieu Pou looked at him quickly. He

"M'sieu, m'sieu, what folly is this?"
said the old innkeeper when it had

When M'sieu Pou entered tlie'comptoir the. two men were standing before

Por*a second he surveyed them; and a
smile lit up his features, a smile of triumph.
"Messieurs," he said; andthsy turned sharply round.

Simon leaving them for a moment, ho

"E give them a good welcome."
Again tho stranger smiled. "And 1

accident or not, Im hand came in contact with the rapier hanging by his side,

note of command in his voice.

way into a smaller room, separated from

"Perhaps T can be of service to you.

He retreated into thc inner room.
-  "The  comedy  is-just-commencing,"
he said with a gay smile to Simon, who
stood   trembling   behind    tho    curtain.
"Two glasses of wine for tny friends."
He relumed with them to the comptoir, and laid them down upon a small
table before him.

nonchalantly, the elder one keenly, his
eyes scrutinizing him beneath their
shaggy brows.
"You were inquiring for a friond of

MARCH 10.  1911  MORE RESIDENCES REQUIRED  Any man looking for a safe, sound  investment, cannot fail to find it in  Enderby real estate. No better buys  are offering any place than those to  be found in town property. And the  man ,o������������������ means, prepared to erect any  reasonable number of medium rental  homes in Enderby, will find nothing  safer, and nothing which will give  him more substantial returns on his  money. The need of more cottages  in Enderby is acutely felt.1; There is  not a house to rent, and few buildings  of any, kind to be had for business or  residence.  It is the legitimate investor which  is wanted at Enderby���������������������������the t man who  buys a property to improve it, and  adds to its value and the stability of  the town by the improvement. The  man who ties up a property for the  season, on, say, a payment of $10 or  $50, and holds it in the hope of selling at an advance before another payment is due, is not the man whose  schemes are of any lasting benefit to  the town or the community. These  curbstone methods do not add any  real value to anything, and check the  sound growth of the community. One  cottage or business block, however  small, is of more real benefit than a  hundred of these curb-stone buys,  which are not purchases at all���������������������������simply the staking of $10 or $50 on the  property of another man on the bet,  implied if not stated, that it will be  sold at a higher figure during the life  of the agreement of purchase. It is a  gamble in real estate. No effort is  made to add value to the property by  improvement.  There are abundant opportunities  in Enderby and District for the man  ���������������������������the investor���������������������������of another calibre���������������������������  the man of means who honestly  wishes to increase his .wealth,.by giving value   for   the   increase received.  This is the. safe���������������������������the only safe���������������������������way  in which the town can advance. It is  the solid way���������������������������the honest way���������������������������the  way without bubbles and frills���������������������������the  way that disturbs the legitimate  plans of nobody and adds to the  prosperity of all. A hen coop, well  built, is of more importance to the  advancement of the community than  a million dollars in hot air promises  and curb-stone oratory.  cockerel; 1st, Ind and 3rd hen; 1st,  1st, 2nd and 3rd pullet; 1st and 2nd  pen.

Perhaps there are many of our readers who do' not know the origin of  this great game. A baseball fan has  figured it out thus: The devil was  the first coacher. He coached Eve  when she stole first, and Adam when  he stole second.       When Ike met Re-,  i. -'  becca at the well, she was walking  with the pitcher. Samson struck  out a good many when he beat the  Philistines. Moses made his first hit  when he slew the Egyptian. Cain  made a base hit when he slew Abel.  Abraham sacrificed. The prodigal  made a record home run. David was  a good thrower, and Moses shut out  the Egyptians at the Red Sea: The  game was called off when the flood  came on account of wet ground.  THE EARLY BIRD  I, reckon there's no song as sweet  as robin's twitter now,.because he is  the first to come with Springtime's  meltin' snow, and -though he cannot  sing as sweet as a canary bird, we  sorter make him king of all���������������������������cause he  is the. first one heard. And so in  business you will find the feller who  gets by is he who takes a fightin'  chance when snow-clouds dim the sky,  and this old world applauds him and  helps him right along, just cause he  twitters early when it's hungry for a  song.���������������������������Uncle Bill.  IT LOOKS GOOD  A-Minnesota editor writes: "The  man who makes a business of farming  should have a business card; some  printed letterheads, with the name of  his farm home thereon; and should  pay his bills with checks on the bank.  All these little things not only, make  business, but help to dignify his calling, improve.his social standing and  enhance credit."  PRICES  Quoted by The Columbia Flouring  Mills Co.

In Paris, tailored costumes of woollen stuff, no matter how  handsome, are no longer worn at afternoon functions.

Rough-surfaced materials ate turned into extremely  smart costumes, trimmed with the new silk braid; in"widtlis  varying from fourteen inches to thirty inches wide, it is set  plainly across the, front and back breadth, ending at the  edge of a side panel or an inverted plait. ���������������������������  Again, this braid is placed across the sides of tha skirt  only, with a line of buttons ornamenting the ends.

It is said that  the buke had tne clock made to strike  ie " unlucky number" so as to wain  his workmen that it was time to return  after dinner, some of them having ox-  ciis������������������'d themselves for being late on the  ground,, that they could not hear it  .strike one.  This recalls the incident when the big  clock of the Houses of Parliament saved  a mail's life. A soldier in the reign  of William and ."Mary was condemned  by court martin] for falling asleep while  on duty on tne terrace at Windsor, lie  stoutly denied tbe charge, nnd by way  of proof solemnly declined that he had  heard Old Tom (the predecessor of Big  Ben) sirikp thirteen instead of twelve.  The officers laughed at the idea, but  while tbe man was in prison awaiting  execution several persons came forward  and swore that the clock actually did  strike thirteen, whereupon the soldier  was pardoned and, released.  Welle Cathedral contains one of the  mo������������������i interesting clocks in the whole  world, lt was constructed by Peter  Light foot, a monk, in 1820, and embraces many devices" which testify to  the ancient horologist's ingenuity. Several celestial and terrestrial bodies are  incoiporated in .the interesting movement and relationship. They indicate  the hours of the day, the age of the  moon, and-the position "or the planets  and the tides. When the clock strikes  the hour two companies of horsemen,  fully armed, dash oiit of gateways in  opposite directions, and charge vigor  ously. They strike with their lancei-  as they pass as many times as correspond with the number "of the hour. A  little distance away, seated 011 ,1 high  perch, is a quaint figure whieh kickf  the quarters on two bells placed beneath  his feet. The dial of tbe clock is divid  ed into twenty-four hours, and shows  the phases of the moon and a map of  the universe.    ' ,. .  An oddity "in clocks is the iuvention  of a Frenchman,. M. Paul Oornn. Jt  consists of a dial mounted above areser  voir^'and having a sort of seesaw mounted upon its support. The reservoir.holds  sufficient alcohol to last a. month, and  this  serves  as  fuel   for  a  small   flanip  Tbe heat from  in  the bulb of the-seesaw'directly above  it: As a result the seesaw moves every  five seconds.

A German, shoemaker- spent' fifteen  years of his leisure moments in constructing a clock of. the,-grandfather  shape ueaYly" six feet h'gh, made entirely of straw. The wheels, pointers,  case, and every detail are exclusively  of straw.- The most remarkable fact  is that it is reported to hcop perfect  time.  The Tsar of Bussia is the possessor  of a unique clock that records not merely the .passing seconds, minutes, and  hours, but the days, weeks,, months, and  years. The clock was invented and  man 11 fact 11 red by two peasants, who presented it to the Bmperor as ������������������ token of  their loyalty.

The clock of Lyons cathedral is a  wonderful piece of mechanism, and thc  legend describing it is as follows: the  cock crown; the bell sounds Ihe hours;  the little bells tlie Sanct fSaneta Spirit-  iiti; the angel opens the gate to salute  the Virgin Mary. The heads tf' th������������������  two lions inovejlieeycs and thc^ tongue,  The astrolabe shows the hours in its  logrees. and the movement of the moon.  Moreover, the perpetual calendar shows  all the days of the year, the feast days  ������������������������������������������������������nd tne bissextile. The hours at which  the chimes are complete arc five and  six in the morning, midday, nnd one  and two o'clock in the afternoon. The  chimes at the other hours are restri������������������led  so as not to interfere with the cathedral service.  Complicated, indeed, is thc cloek cf  fho Hpauvais cathedral. It is said to  be composed of 92,')00 separate pieces,  according to a French statement. One  ipes on the fifty-two dial plates the  hour, the day, the wepk. and the month,  the rising and sptting of the sun, the  phases of the moon, the tides, Ihe time  in the principal capitals of the world,  together with a series of terrestrial nnd  astronomical evolutions. Thc framework is of carved oak, eight by five  metres, or twenty-six by sixteen and  one-quarter feet. When the clock  strikes, nil tho edifice seems in movement.

WADDELL, Proprietors  As a result of the instructive talk  given last week in Enderby by Mr.  Holman, the Kelowna tobacco expert,  under the. auspices of the Northern  Okanagan Farmers' Institute, on the  growing, curing and marketing of tobacco, the initial steps have already  been taken to establish the industry  in Enderby district.  Mr. F. H. Barnes will plant_half an  acre of his hill land this year; Mr*  R. R. Gibbs will plant a quarter of  an acre on clay bottom land; Mr.  Collin and Messrs. Attenborough will  test the bench lands east of tbe river  and Mr. Wm. Anderson and Mr.  Walker the sandy loam on the river  bank. Mr. T. Robinson will also try  a thousand plants on his bench land.  The Enderbyites who are giving  this try-out, will pay for the services  of one of Mr. Holman's experienced  growers to handle the planting, the  careing for, the picking, curing, packing and shipping of the tobacco to  be given a try-out on these numerous  patches, as it is deemed that this is  the only way in, which tbe test can  be made of any practical benefit. The  plants will be put in about the middle of June, and will be harvested in  August.  found it necessary to abandon street  lighting, to reduce the police force,  dismiss certain other municipal officers, and lay over contemplated public improvements.

Mr.  Smedley has -been dealing in single  and rose comb " Black Minorcas for  three seasons. He was fortunate in  getting his first pen, and he has been  fortunate in his care of them. The  clean profit on his first pen the first  season was just $11 per bird. The  second season, with more birds and  more pens to look after, did not  show up. quite so well, the net profit  for the season being $8 per bird. At  the present time, Mr. Smedley has  perhaps the finest pens he has yet  shown, and he anticipates a very  good season.  And then, too, it might be well to  take this point into consideration:  While the matter of breed may not be'  important, and the matter of strain  be very important, there is a matter  of still greater importance, and that  is the man or woman behind the  breed and the strain.        i  N a sermon which "struck home"  to every hearer, last Sunday  morning, Rev. Mr. Campbell  made the broad statement that every  accomplishment reaching beyond the  mediocre was the result of some individual "attempting the impossible."  Not only in practical everyday life,  but also in the spiritual life of the  community. And the ultimate arg-i-  ment was, that the moment we sit  down satisfied with ourselves and  content to rest upon our oars, we fall  back into the sump of inditforo.iicc,  and our moral natures, our business  instinct, our spiritual senses, heco'iie  quagmired and green with Avaric-e,  Sensuality and Shallow Insipidity.  The storms of life, the clouds, the  trials of -whatever nature, are ihe  avenues through which we walk to  greater things. To live long -on  one strata of development, no matter  in what direction we are headed, narrows the individual, darkens the vision and weakens the moral fibre. If  there is to be growth there must be  exercise; the muscle or the brain cell  unused breeds a frogpond slime of  green over the vision and makes foul  the individual caught in cthe meshes  of self-complacency.
