E. Crane of Enderby, returned to  their Victoria home on Tuesday.  School resumed on Monday. Mr. McDonald has the principalship vacated  by Mr. Simpson, and Miss Murray of  Armstrong has taken the position made  vacant by the resignation of Miss Smith.  Mr. and Mrs. D. A. Straiton are  visiting Mr. and Mrs. R.' J. Coltart  from the coast. It is Mr.. Straiton's  intention to locate at Enderby-after  settling up' some business matters at  his coast home.

The ladies of the Presbyterian Aid  tendered Mrs. Robert.

Mr. and Mrs. Mowat  and family have removed to Kamloops, where Mr. Mowat has established a very lucrative laundry business.  W.

He  was cut down in time to save his life  and has been- "taken -to Vernon' for  safe-keeping. _ < __/  Enderby Winners  at Ashcroft Poultry Show  Enderby poultrymen were well rep-jver cup for best five females at show;  resented at the poultry show which  was held at Ashcroft last week.

"In order to be poor in the Okanagan, you have to watte an awful lot of Time and Money."  H.    M.  W   A  I-  K   12   R  ONE   MAN'S POINT OF VIEW  ���������������������������  f  HE effort that is being made'by  the    committee   appointed    by  the Northern   Okanagan Poul-  try_ Association to secure, if possible  The Bonnie Briar Bush is a charming romance of thc Scottish hills.  a suitable building for the holding of  the annual Winter Poultry Show at  Enderby, is    worthy of much praise.  But���������������������������and there is a "but"���������������������������the effort  it seems to many, is being made in  the wrong direction.   Feeling that it  would   be   useless   to   approach the  City Council and ask for an appropriation for such a purpose, the committeemen are attempting to find the  means to buy a lot and erect a building thereon,   and   they   propose to  sell   shares   in   the   Association   to  raise   the    necessary    amount.     Of  course, in asking anyone to purchase  these shares, the committeemen realize that it would be only a mild way  of asking   for ,an   appropriation   or  contribution from the man's personal  means, for they recognize they could  not promise   any   return   on the investment���������������������������in a direct way, at least.  This, we believe,    is   wrong.   Just  why a few loyal men should be asked  to dip down  and   find   the funds to  erect a building for a distinctly public purpose, we   fail   to comprehend.  Outside of the   businessmen, most of  the men.  who   would   contribute are  poultrymen, and they have done and  are doing already the lion's share of  the work   in   connection   with these  annual exhibitions.   No doubt $800 or  $1000 could   be   raised   in this way,  but it would not be just, either to  the town, the Association or the men  public-spirited enough to go into it.  Enderby either   wants this annual  poultry   show   or   it   doesn't.   If it  wants it, the city is not only justified iu doing so, but it is its duty,  to assume some of the burden in connection with it. * We should .emulate  the splendid example of Armstrong:  provide a building as Armstrong has  done, and allow the use of it to the  Poultry Association free of charge,  as Armstrong does its Agricult iral  Hall to the Agricultural Society.  We all know what the annual feir  means=ito:=:=Armstrong.==Per-haps=-. he-  Winter Poultry Show would not me .n  as much to Enderby in the start, but  the time is not long when, if proper  facilities are provided' for" holding  these shows, it will mean a great  deal more to Enderby than the annual fair means to Armstrong. We  can see no reason why Endorby  should, not be made the headquarters  for high-class poultry for British Columbia, and the poultrymen of the  Dominion would no more think of  missing the winter poultry .how nt  Enderby than they now think of missing thc annual poultry ������������������'iow nt  Guclph, ont.  If Enderby does not want i!io annual poultry show, the n.m.njr tre  Association becomes aware .if the  fact the better it will be for till concerned.  ���������������������������  But we believe Enderby do( s v ant  to hold the annual show !.>re. We  believe enough of our bu_uf_.;smen  and citizens generally reco^ui_e thc  great benefit these shows h'.ve ni-  ready been to Enderby and thc District, and they know that what has  been done is only, a start of the ical  thing that may be accomplished l.y  and through them. And we belie-.,  too, that the Northern Okanagan  Poultry Association would have no  difficulty whatever in having a suitable building erected by the city if  the matter is approached in the right  way. To ask the City Council to  appropriate any sum of money out  of the current revenue for the purpose is not reasonable.   It would not  be justified in so doing, for the building would have to be a general purpose ^building, and its life would.extend over a number oi years, whereas"  the current revenue is for current  use. To petition the Council in the  regular way to submit a by-law to  the electors to raise, say $2,000 for  the erection of a general purpose  building,    which   could   be   used for  exhibition purposes, on the recreation"  ground would be reasonable and we  do not believe one property owner in  ten would oppose such a proposition.  We are certain every businessman in  the city would sign such a petition.  Enderby needs a public building on  the recreation ground. It should be  one that could be utilized by the  city at all times and in all ways for  the advancement of those enterprises  and amusements which are so essential to our advance. Enderby needs  a covered skating rink for bonspeil  and carnival purposes. It requires  an exhibition hall, that wo might be  in a position to hold a fruit exhibit.  There are numerous purposes that a  public building could be put to, and  it would all assist in the development of the town and district.  The birds that will be sent to the  next Winter Poultry Show will in all  probably be not less than 800. Mr.  Robt. Waddell informs us that the  fanciers of Ashcroft will alone send  at least 150. They have already .provided to do so. Next year's prize  list will be thrown open to a very  large extent with the intention of  bringing birds in from the outside,  and it is up to Enderby to prepare  for it. Right now is the time to do  so. Waits are always dangerous. As  soon as the new City Council is elected and gets down to business a petition should be presented to them,  so that the matter may be placed before the electors and the funds provided for the building to go up as  soon as spring   building commences.  silver   coffee    perculator for highest-  scoring p. ir   in   American- class, 187.  points; brass mantle clock for highest-scoring     pair   in   Mediterranean  class, 187 points.  In his remarks before the Ashcroft  Association, Judge Collier said that  he never judged a finer lot of birds  as a whole, than the exhibit made by  Mrs. Waddell, and he paid her a very  high compliment on the splendid condition' of her birds.  ,  Mr. and Mrs. Waddell, and all who  attended.the Ashcroft show from Enderby, came home enthusiastic over  the splendid treatment accorded them  and the genuine spirit of friendly, rivalry than' .prevails in the Ashcroft  Association. Ashcroft "fanciers have  promised to send , 150 birds to the  next poultry>how at Enderby.   -   "  The   judging   by ' Mr. V Collier "was '<  more, than���������������������������satisfactory.'.-He, judged-'  the same birds-at the Enderby. show, ."  and many of them were sent to Ashcroft largely '-to' test the * accuracy of  his   .scoring...-. "In *every...instance hi'  gave, the birds, ifnot the same scoring, within a   quarter   of a point of.  -  the   marks   given   at   the   Enderby-."  show, and   in  every   case where the -  scoring was" different; it: was" on ac;  count of the   better condition of the _. ;  fowl. ���������������������������      - _-    -.  From the   Ashcroft show, Mr.' and' "'  Mrs.NWaddell    take   their exhibit to    '  the Vancouver   poultry show.   From  there they go to Seattle and Tacoma -  exhibitions, and may. go farther east.  They are out for practical lessons in.  poultry, and    wiir  bring home with  them the finest   birds   they can pick    -  up at the several shows.   It is their  determination   to   make   the   Hazelmere Poultry Farm second to none in  Canada, and to do so they will bring  t_^E_derby^thT^tfc_igesr_^  birds to be found to head their pens.  ,AU who   attended   the New Years  Ball given by the Enderby Oddfellows  declare it to have been the best dance  ever given in Enderby.   Sixty couple  were on the floor, and 115 sat down  to' a well-served   and    much-relished  supper- at   the   King Edward.     The  hall was very   artistically decorated1 -  with evergreens and bunting, and the  floor and   music   never   were better.  On" one side   of    the    stage stood a  bare-limbed,    lifeless     tree,    labeled  "1909" and opposite it a lusty young  spruce with    "1910"    swinging hopefully from its branches.  "Was She to Blame," will be put  on in K. of P. hall next Monday  evening. The advance agent gives us  this advance notice to publish: "J.  G. Stuttz, Esq.

"Yes, yer wo'shup; .1 believe 'e  was cleanin' it," said the constable  in a dazed,tone.  The chairman's face relaxed, but  his work was not yet done. He  turned to his colleagues, and for  fully ten minutes his earnest, persuasive voice was engaged endeavoring to convert them to his opinion.

Behind the cucumber row  is the potato market, where for sixpence, you may buy two stone of  new potatoes. "With these are a  long array of stalls with vegetables  and fruit, everything superabundant and at surprising prices. Raspberries and apricots go at twopence  a'pound, peaches at fourpence,  cherries and plums at a penny,  gooseberries at a halfpenny, blackberries at three halfpence, and all  this fruit in at Lhe same lime.

New  laid eggs arc sold at this fair at n  farthing each, cheese at threepence  a pound, butter at tenpence, bacon  at fourpence and fivepence a pound.  Herrings and river fish, sun dried  and cured, arc sold ten on a string  for twopence-halfpenny; live green  crayfish, ten for threepence. At  ..hops near by mutton is sold at  threepence-halfpenny and lamb at  fourpence-halfpcnny a pound ; beef  at threepence.  The fair is, however, a poor  man's market.

Recently Mr. Johnson examined  the eyes of every animal in thc zoo  except the giraffe, and he declares  that he could furnish spectacles for  all which have defective sight. A  raven'which--was operated upon for  cataract has actually been provided with spectacles, which are fitted  to the eyes by means of a kind of  hood. The improvement in its sight  'was obvious.  The examination of so many animals was not accomplished without  many interesting and dangerous experiences. A puma which had been  taught to box by its owner was one  of the patients. A pair of gloves  had been placed on its paws to prevent its using its claws, and when  Mr. Johnson stooped down' the puma hit out vigorously with its right.  Only once did ho use chloroform.

Until    the    seventeenth century  knife-blades had pointed  ends,  as  _c a n .b Q- r c a d i 1 y_u nd.erg Io pd_ w he n_ th e.  knife of those clays was used i'or  hunting and table purposes indiscriminately. The rounded end was  introduced from France in a curious way. It happened that Cardinal Richelieu was compelled to entertain at his table a certain Chancellor Scquier���������������������������a vulgar and unmannerly man, who, at the close of  Mexican Runner Ran HO Miles i������������������  Sixteen Hours.  In Mexico, in the little mountain  town of Bocoyna, in the state of  Chihuahua, there is a tribe of Indians whose physical endurance and  long-distance running are phenomenal. Their powers havo been  brought to light by the construction of a railroad in the neighborhood.  Although pedestrians of other  climes and those inured to the science of long-distance running can  seldom stay more than ten miles,  the Tarahumaras think nothing of  jaunts of one hundred to twodiun-  dred miles, and these distances, too,  at a gait lhat seems incredible.  Thc favorite course is from Bocoyna lo the town- of Miniaca and  return, a distance of ono hundred  and ten miles..in all, and over a trail  exceedingly rough in places.  At a race not long ago a purse of  one hundred dollars was made up  to be awarded to thc winner. Great  interest was manifested in .the race,  for the sum offered is a considerable  fortune to the members of the tribe.  A council was immediately held by  the chiefs, and two of fche fastest  runners were selected to contest for  the prize.  When all was ready the runners  set out from Bocoyan, first at a slow  swinging gait. As they went along  they warmed to their work, ancl the  pace was quickened. To thc surprise of everybody, tho winner mad.  the full distance in sixteen hours.  Each year thc Tarahumaras hold  a'big race meet at the town of Siso-  quichc, usually in the month of November. The race-track takes in a  big sweep 'of country, and is eight  miles in circumference, the total  distance being one hundred and  forty miles. Ori the last occasion  of this meet the winner came homo  in thirty hours, and.three others  were close up.  What was still more wonderful  was the fact that each runner was  handicapped by having to kick a  wooden ball along thc ground in  front of. him for the entire-journey,  and was"disqualified if he touched  it with his hands.        . -  Prior to the construction of thc  railroad, it was nothing for a Tara-  humara to leave Bocoyna for Chihuahua, a-distance of one hundred  and thirty-five, miles by way of. the  most direct .trail over the mountains, one morning and~return thc  next morning. It is hard to believe  that this two hundred and seventy  miles could be covered by a human, being afoot in twenty-four  hours, but it has been done lime  and again by" the Indians.  They seem to be possessed of  greater lung capacity- than any  other known  race of people.  They cat very little before making those long journeys.  As to their method of progress, it  is peculiar, and adapted lo long-distance jaunts. They move along in  a sort of    lope,  or    swaying trot.  REBUILDING THE  WHOLE BOD?  Tliat is the Constant Business  of the Blood.  And Tliat is Why a Blood Making  Tonic Will Make the Body  Well and Keep it So.  Pure, red blood is the vital principal of life, for upon it the tissue.,  of the body live.   It goes practical J  ly to every part of the body, car-j  rying nourishment and oxygen, talc-!  ing up the wastes and so changiag  them that Ihey can be cast out of.  the body.   As our every act result  in the breaking down of some - of'  thc tissues - and the   formation of  waste materials,  the body is in  a  constant    state    of    change.        To  maintain health,  strength ancl life  the blood must be pure in order to,  replace  these  tissues  with,plenty,  ci  fresh" nourishment and  rid  the  body of its waste material.  Men  and  women    who    arc  run  down will find Dr.  Williams' Pink  Pills the best tonic for their condition  because    these    Pills are a  certain  blood-builder and purifier.  They enable the blood to meet the.  unusual demands of thc body and  give perfect health.    We offer the  case of Mrs. John Harman, of Wetland, Ont., as a proof of-the great  power of.Dr.  Williams'  Pink Pills  over diseases. Mrs. Harman says:���������������������������'  "For several years I lived a life of  pain and misery, and even-now as  I recall that illness it seems awful'  to contemplate.   Thc trouble began  with weakness and loss of appetite.'.  This was followed by headaches and.  emaciation." At times I had violent  palpation of the heart and shortness of breath, finally I was completely prostrated.    I was so haggard that my  friends hardly knesv';  mo,' and.I often    thought" my last  hour - had    come.      My sufferings  would follow me into thc region of;  dreams, with "such distinctness that .  often times 1-would awaken shiver-'  ing and    shaking    wilh  sobs,  and   ���������������������������  scarcely able to realize that I had  been but dreaming. . The best   ef-;  forts of -three doctors afc different  .times  failed  to. help'me.'   Then- I  was urged to trv ]_>r. Williams' Pink  Pills.    Within' one month I felt     _  distinct   improvement, - and    after  using eleven boxes 1 was again   in:  the  full  possession   of  health   and!  strength.    Several years have now.  elapsed since this illness and as [���������������������������  have constantly enjoyed the best of '-  health- I am    warranted    in saying  that the cure is permanent."  which docs not seem  Lo be in  the  least tiring.

MAGISTRATE SPEAKS FOR ZAM-BUK  Magistrate Terry, ,( Gold fields, B.C., believes in making a  rood thiug known.    Writing of. Zam-Buk, the great-..household  balm, he says :���������������������������"After a very fair trial" I have proved Zam-Buk1  eminently satisfactory.    In my case it-cured a skin rash of five  year, standing which no doctor had been able to do any good;  for.    I would certainly encourage any person to kcej.Zam.Buk/.  in his home." The magistrate is quite right.   Every home needs  Zam-BukI    Unequalled for cuts, burns, bruises, eczema, blood  poisoning and nil skin diseases.   All stores and druggists sell it at  50 cents a box.   Sure cure for piles,  DON'T HECLECT THAT SORE!  A Chicago man has just died from blood poisor'.-  ing arising from neglect of a small sore. Don't  neglect a cut, a patch of eczema, or an open sore  of any kind. The air is full of poison germs,  waiting to start up their.evil results in neglected  sores, wounds, etc. In Zam-Euk is safety. Zam-  Buk is so highly antiseptic that applied to any  skindiseasc or injury it makes blood poisoning impossible. In using Zam-Buk you have three  processes going on at once for Zam-Buk is healing  soothing and antiseptic.    Try  it   without   delay.  A GENUINE  OFFER.  TEST ZAM-BUK AT OUB EXPENSE.

In this way thoy arc enabled to keep up their regular Ilow  of milk, while on the other hand if  they be bard milkers thc milker becomes discouraged and impatient,  and fails to draw out. the natural  quantity. Thc cow or heifer will  then soon show the effect of this  by drying up on her milk. Tn this  way many a valuable cow has become practically worthless as a milk  producer.  Hard milking in cows or heifers  can be positively overcome in a  short period, of time and in a very  economical way (not by the uso of  the milking tube) but by the uso 0!  the teat plug.  The teat should be washed witfc  an antiseptic solution, the tea.  plug should be dipped in a liko solution, and in a little ointment and  passed into the point of the teat;  being self-retaining it should bo  permitted to remain in the teat  from one milking lo another, in this  manner hard milking can bo made  a thing of thc past. ��������������������������� Dr. D.ivM  .Fioberts.  ���������������������������-'���������������������������)!

JANUARY 6, 1910  ENDERBY SCHOLARS PASS  Enderby had four scholars try the  Midwinter examinations, ancl all of  them passed. Six tried at Vernon  and two passed; two tried at Armstrong���������������������������one from North Enderby and  one from Salmon River���������������������������and both  failed. Three hundred and eighty-two  pupils throughout the province took  the examinations and out of this  number 212 were successful���������������������������55 per  cent. Of the 212 who passed, only 24  obtained more than 700 marks out of  a possible 1000. Those who tried at  Enderby and passed were: Sylvia V.  Black, 701; Harold J. Bass, 683; John  D. McMahon, G4S; ancl Henry A.  Teece, G35. Sylvia Black stood higher  than any candidate in Victoria, and  of.i the 148 who passed in Vancouver,  only eight were ahead of her. She  stood fifth highest in the interior of  B. C. This speaks well not only for  the pupils trying the exams, but for  Mr. Simpson, whose untiring efforts  as school master, must have been of  great assistance to the pupils.  dence on all public matters from our  rate payers," but for heavens sake,  ladies and gentlemen, be more brief.

Oa the day after thc publication  of this news thc Kaiser was duo  at Aix-la-Ghappclle. A member of  the Town Council suggested that  everyone in the town s'hculd wear  0- buttonhole of the Kaiser's favorite flower.  GETTING AT THE KAISER  The suggestion was a. once acted on.

The poor fellows could not conceive why the Kaiser's demeanor  ������������������������������������������������������was so freezing. He dismissed them  wit'h a few words, got into his carriage, and drove off.  At the Town Hall was another  deputation, similarly decorated.  Then his Majesty's wrath exploded.

PJtINOE FERDINAND  .FOOLED.  It is not likely that any reigning  sovereign ever got a more un-plca.-  .anfc scare than did Ferdinand of  Bulgaria, some five years ago. His  private, secretary, _ young baron,  was away in Austria on a vacation,  when a. letter arrived for his Royal  master announcing that'he did not  propose to return, -an.1 that ho  would be glad of the sum of 9200,-  000. Otherwise, he wrote, ho would  be compelled to sell a- number of  secret documents which he had  taken away with  him.  Instantly Prince Ferdinand despatched a couple of secret service  envoys in. chase of his missing secretary, whom they ran to ground  'peacefully shooting on his own estate. Further investigation proved  the missive to be nothing but a  hoax.���������������������������London Answers.  - ���������������������������  "Mv aear    sur.  .Majesty chiclly  ago. our own   Kin  de-  he said,  '���������������������������'surely you knew' that tho red carina tion is the emblem of t'he Social  Democrats, and, of all flowers, the  one which his  tests!"

As impudent a. hoax as ever was  I heard  of  was perpetrated in   1901  'upon a    Belgian paper.    A letter,  purporting to 'be in. the 'handwriting and above    the  signature    of  princess Louise of Coburg, was received by the editor, who very foolishly published it without first assuring himself as to    it  ness.

Dominico Cappa. thc Italian  Sherlock Holmes, has just died, almost an octogenarian, leaving most  interesting memoirs of a time which  although relatively near, seems already ancient history. Cappa's  great achievements as a detective  are innumerable. He always refused to carry arms, of -which _ hc  had almost a holy horror, saying,  "My best arms arc these." showing" two formidable hands which,  when they grasped a criminal, wero  like a vise.  The most .important service he  rendered to his country was thc  constant watch which hc kept on  Count Cavour, the groat statesman, until hc died. Cappa says in  his memoirs that in order not to  abandon his charge for a single instant he used to go on for weeks  working IS hours a day, having only  ono meal, late at night.  One of the most characteristic an-  necdotes    in    Cappa'3    memoirs is  connected with the disastrous peace  of  Villafranca  to   which Piedmont  had to submit -when it was imposed  upon by her Napoleon III.       That  day Count Cavour went for hi.s usual "walk along    the ' banks  of thc  Diver Po, followed by thc faithful  Cappa.   Both men were heartbroken (tit the turn of events.   At a certain point Cavour took off his top  hat and  relieved his  feelings    by  crushing it in, afterwards jamming  thc  shapeless  remnants  on  to  his  head.

Count Cavour    took off his  hat, thrust his fist into it to restore  it fo some sort of shape, and went  on.    When he reached his door hc  turned and stood for a few moments  as    though    considering    what   hc  would say fo Cappa, then, without  a word, hc held out his hand, which  the  defective  pressed  fo    his lips,  and both.men hurriedly withdrew, to.  hide the tears in their eyes.  IF THEIR WEALTH PA1LED  WHAT     SOME   MILLIONAIRES  MIGHT DO.  It Suddenly Became Poor Most of  Thorn Well Qualified <o Earn  Their r_vi.Bg.  A very interesting- article dealing  with the Ditnnor in which million-  ��������������������������� ires would earn their livin$ appears in London Tit-Bits. The result of thc investigations of the  writer seems to lead him to the  conclusion that they oould all cam  at least affair living. For instance,  Alfred Vanderbilt is an expert  horseman, and if that popular millionaire should ever be in reduced  circumstances he would make an  ideal coachman or bus-driver; and  be might even aspire to succeed the  Lord Mayor's coachman and drive  the great gilded car at the Lord  Mayor's show.  IN" AN OFFICE.  His brother-'George would certainly have no difficulty in earning  his living, if such a desperate  course: were necessary. Not only is  he an expert typewriter and stenographer, but he is a fluent speaker  in no fewer than six languages ���������������������������  French, German. Italian, Greek,  a.nd Sanskrit, as well, of course, as  his native English. Many an office  in the city would jump at him as  foreign correspondence clerk, at  which ho could probably cam several pounds a week.  There are at- least three men who  arc cither    actual    or prospective  millionaires w'ho, if their possessions or expectations were suddenly to vanish into thin air, would,  in all probability, become professionals in the games in which they  are at present distinguished amateurs. The man who can beat Eustace Miles at tennis and racquets,  and give "Punch" Fairs a good  game, could easily 'make his living  as an exponent of one of the most  difficult in existence, and as young  Jay Gould won thc championship  of the world at these games before  hc reached his majority, he would  have little difficulty, at least, ro  m'aking his bread and butter.  CRICKETERS TOO!  clvanfc. He would probably have a  struggle to begin with, as there are  some very knowing men already in  the business, but his wide knowledge of his subject would probably win in the end.  USEFUL AT SEA.  If Sir Thomas Lipton were to  suddenly come dew.'n with a mm it  i* moro than probable that ha  would seek and obtain immediate  employment as steward ou board a  liner, or perhaps on some nobleman's steam yacht. Ho would be a  particularly useful man, for not  only has he all the secrets of catering at his finger-ends, but if anything went wrong with the works  he could give the captain points in  navigation.  Mr. John Jacob Astor is not only  a capable gardener and an orchid-  grower, but he has also invented a  bicy.clo brake and a pneumatic road  improver, so that if he were suddenly deprived of his millions he  could make his living as a mechanic or a gardener. His cousin, William Waldorf Astor, could make  his living as a fi_.c-lan._o journalist.

Mr. Leopold Rothschild, if be  were suddenly to find himself face  tc face with the spectre of poverty,  would probably seek an early in-  Lciview .with one of.fhc.great nurserymen and florists whose catalogues arrive with thc first effusion of tho spring poet. Tho seedsman who had the good luck to take  him on would soon discover hc had  found a treasure, for his new workman would be able to give him very  valuable wrinkles as to the best  way o'f-securing prizes for his geraniums and roses at the flower  shows all over the country. Uf  course, if Mr. Rothschild succeeded in saving a few hundred pounds  out of his lostmillions* hc might  set up as a florist ami gardener on  his own account in a humble -way.  and there is little doubt-���������������������������such is  his skill and knowledge of his subject���������������������������that he would quickly establish himself as a leading rose and  geranium grower.  Mr. Pierpont Morgan, if he were  reduced to beggary, would probably borrow a few pounds and start  business in it humble way as a pic-  lure and curio dealer.

Thc forward march of civilization  has reached the wilds of the Canadian north ancl trappers report that  their business is rapidly becoming  unprofitable on account of the ^frequency of thc settlements. That  state of affairs is to be expected  and the wonder is that the situation  has not become more acute loug  ago. It is rcmarkeablc that thc  business has continued profitable,  says thc Kennebec Journal.  History has repeated itself in^this  as in all "other things. Thc advance  guard of civilization was years behind a class of hardy trappers who  earned their.livelihood in thc solitude of thc forests by taking animals for their furs. As- civilization advanced thc number of trappers became larger and the amount  of game diminished until there was  no longer a profit to be had from  the business.  ��������������������������� It began with Maine- and Massachusetts and continued.to the westward until the United States was  no longer tenable for the trapper.  Tho Hudson Bay Company preserved the frozen north of Canada for  half a century after thc United  States had ceased to be a profitable  hunting ground, but the onward  march of thc railroads and the ever  restless wave of homeseekers has  at last advanced to" thc very outposts of the Hudson Bay territory.  Gold and wheat have been thc lode-  stones and thc trapping business  suffers.  ��������������������������� Where will we get our furs in the  future. Wc will raiso them. For  farming, skunk farming, cat farming and thc hundred and one other  kinds of animal raising will take  thc place of thc trapper and his  gun. .._0_thcr jur bearing __aTiini_aj_p_  will soon be taught to" eat out-of  thc hand of man just as thc domestic animals of thc farm have been  doing for centuries.

It is possible, even if one becomes  depondent on others, to make life  so pleasant for them that they will  deem it more than worth while to'  have one around.  Charles Lamb, lying ill on a timo,  was attended by a nurse who regaled him with _ mustard plaster.  When she put it on he remarked  with a sweet smile that it seemed  a great deal of mustard for so littlo  meat.  FINE HUMOR.  One will do a great deal for a  person who is capable of making  such a remark as that. There is ..  self-depreciatory touch to it, an exquisite tact, and a fine humor that  are worth perhaps more than much  finc gold.  On the other hand, it is possible  to convey a great truth with a certain churlishness, in which thc absence of courtesy is almost painful,  ancl especially when thc object of  it is one whose lifo may be one long  habit of receiving adulation from  others. As for example, on one occasion Alexander thc Great camo  up to Diogenes, who was basking  in tbe sun.

While hc was  waiting for the reply I observed an  object something like a boy's popgun suspended around his waist.  On asking what it was, he showed  mo that it was an implement for  producing fire. It was a rude example of a scientific implement employed by lectures at home to illustrate the production of heat by  suddenly compressed air. A piston fitted into' the tube. The former was hollowed at the lower end  and smeared with wax to receive a  piece of cotton or tinder, which  when pressed into it adhered. Thc  tube was closed at one end. Placing the piston at the top of the tube,  with a smart blow he struck it  down and immediately withdrew it  with the tinder on fire, the sudden  compression of the air having ignited it. I was so much struck with  thc scientific ingenuity of this rude  implement that I procured it from  the Burman and sent it to the Asiatic Society of Bengal with a short  description of its uses.���������������������������I. .collections of  My Life by  Surgcon-Gen-  This is distinctly bad manners.

One of tho  others came up to him and said:  "Dr. Holmes,.I should think, you  would  feel  rather  small  to-day."  "I do, sir," replied Dr. Holmes,  "I feel liko a 3-cent  a lot of pennies."  ' FINEST SORT OF COURTESY.  Joseph Jefferson, in his autobiography, - speaks . of an occasion  where hc could have made a clcvov  answer and discomfited his companion���������������������������who deserved it���������������������������but hc ro--  frained. Hc adds that hc never regretted it. He goes on to say that  in his opinion it is 'better alway_  tc refrain. Perhaps this is the rca..  son why his name has come to b<j  associated with so much that is truly  courteous and gentlemanly in tho  best sense of that term.  A a an example of the finest soru  of courtesy expressed in a reply,  there is the retort of the Grecian  King Archelaus.  Some one threw water over him,  and dtis friends, enraged at tbe in-,  suit,   tried   to     exasperate     him  against thc offender.  ==R _p-Kefr=th'<r_ ving".- 'ikrwas^no\H^  that he threw water at, but the per-'  son hc supposed I was."

Strange as it sounds, history ha_  two authentic accounts of the em-!  ploynicnt of bees as missiles of deJ  fence in warfare.  Thc first instance occurred at tlio  siege of Thomificyra, in Pontus, by,'  Lucullus, in his war against Mith-,  ridates. Thc Romans made hugej  mounds outside fche city walls, inside which they gathered their ma-;  chin cry for mining, etc. But the.  Themiscyrans had a happy thought.;  They dug open these mounds fron^  thc top, and cast clown upon tho  soldiers inside bears and other w.l .'  animals, and huge hives and swarm il  of bees.  The second time that bees wcr.  put to this extraordinary use. wa?  when the. Danes and Norwegians  attacked. Chester, which was gal.  lantly defended by the Saxons. All  sorts of stratagems were used pni  bcth sides, but the honors remained'  fairly even, until fche Saxons, after,  collecting all the liquid in the town, j  boiling it, and pouring it over their,  besiegers, followed this up by un-.  expectedly throwing down all their  bee-hives.  Very soon after this the Danes,  and Norwegians desisted, and'  marched away from Chester.  Fireworks were first invented in  Europe, at Florence, in 1300.  About half 11.3 globe is composed  of iron.  ������������������.������������������  *]\  I  _  V  *.  ������������������'__  ../ .  ir  k  I '&  a  -   >  4  s--f  ������������������������������������������������������$#  H53:  THROW AWAY ALL  YOUR FEARS  BACKACHE.

Palmer Rapids, Ont., Nov. 1. ���������������������������  (Special).���������������������������The thousands of Canadians who live in daily terror of  those terrible forms of Kidney Disease known as Backache, Gravel  and Rheumatism, will be deeply interested in the story of Mrs. Fred  Kricger, of this place.  "I was ,for years a great sufferer from Kidney Disease, Gravel,  Rheumatism and Backache," Mrs.  Kricger states.. "It all started  through a cold, but I got so my  head ached, I was nervous, my  limbs were heavy, I had a dragging sensation across my loins, and  I was totally unfit to do anything.  "Reading about wonderful cures  bj Dodd's Kidney-Pills led me to  buy some. After using a few I  found they were doing me good and  this encouraged me to continue  their use.

Their Distribution is an Interesting Affair..  The close of school in France is  made,the occasion of a splendid  function���������������������������the distribution of prizes.  At the present time schools close on  the eve of the national fete, July  14th, instead of dragging their session to the very last day of the  month, as was formerly the custom.  At the "distribution of prizes of a  lycee, or public school, in Paris,  there is an orchestra, and officials  of the government and of the University of France form" an imposing  sort of chorus about the central  figure of the occasion���������������������������some famous man chosen to make the oration.  If, as is frequently the case, the  orator of thc day is an Academicien,  he wears the wonderful green and  black uniform of his rank, and carries himself in such a distinguished manner as to look much' more  than thc fortieth part of immortality which his official dignity denotes.  In the great schools of Paris the  number of students is immense. Assembled for the distribution of prizes,-the schools themselves present  an impressive spectacle. "A large  part are in the uniform of the internes,���������������������������boarders,���������������������������all are immaculately attired, wearing- white gloves  and the fineness of French intellectual fibre causes this mass of youth  to exhibit characteristics of distinction sometimes lacking in similar  assemblages of English youth.  In the actual distribution of prizes, the family spirit, -so strong in  the-French, has pretty manifestation. .When thc boy's name has  been called and his award designated, he goes to the stage. He then  has the privilege of indicating the  person from whom he would like to  receive his prize. He may, if he  will, select the great Academicien,  who then, with his illustrious hands,  will deliver to the boy his prize,  saying a few gracious words to him,  and probably kissing him on both  cheeks.  On many instances, however, the  boy ignores-his opportunity .to-secure something like immortalization  for himself, and chooses to "receive  his prize at the hands of his mother. -He then turns his back upon  the mayor, the faculty of tlie -University of .France, and upon the  Academie francaise, and-descends  to' the audience with his professor  nt his heels bearing his. prize.  There the prize is finally bestowed upon him by his mother, who  embraces'him before all the people.   -���������������������������#   WOMAN'S TRADE SCIIOOL.

Scientist Finds Aro Light and Gas  to be Cheapest.  Leon Gaster recently made somo  "interesting cemparisons between  thc costs of producing various illu-  ^minants. His figures are for England. The cost of obtaining 1,000  candle power hours was taken as a  ba .is, using different means of con-  Verting the energy inte light and  assuming the price of gas to be 60  ������������������exits a thousand cubic feet, .lec-  '.tricity 8 cents a kilowatt hour, carbide C cents a pound, (gasoline 28  cents a gallon and kerosene 14 cents  a gallon.  The cheapest light, according to  the Ironmong.., is obtained wilh  the electric flarao <arc (2 cents),  closely followed by high pressure  gate and inicandescent high pressure  oil (each 2.5 cents), while the most  ���������������������������expensive is the carbon fila-mcnt  electric incandescent lamp (29  cents), tho bats-wring gas burner  ���������������������������coming next (22 cents).  Mr. Gaster-pointed out that interesting and useful as these results  may be it is obviously labburd to  coimpane a thousand candle power  unit with a small candle pow. r glow  lamp, and in the cases quoted  above it will be noticed tha. elec-  tiicity is responsible for both the  cheapest and most expensive forrnB  of illumination (according to the  conditions und ter which it is utilized- ���������������������������>  Evidently, however, the electric  flame, arc is quite out of th ������������������ question for the illumination of roams  of Ismail dimensions, and when ono  siimply takes the lighting systems  which could reasonably [be used for  domestic purposes it is intei-eating  to note the comparative cheapness  of gas.  Gasolene air gas and electric mercury vapor lamps.are 'both stated  to cost 4 cents a thousand candle  powler hours, but it is very doubtful whether the latter are likely to  find much favor in the household,  useful though they may be in shops  and offices. . "  Turning to th-e illumiriants most  frequently met with one' finds that  'the ico st for th ie' incandescent mantle, burning low pressure _ga>s is G  cents,"while .the-cheapest, electric  incandescent la imps are found to be  the HeHon (8 cents); Tungstlen (10  'cents), Osmium (12-cents), Tantalum (15 cents),-Ncmst(15 cents) and  Metalized (17'cents),-all of'.which,;  it,will be noted, cost-far less than  .the carbon 'filament.

At    present, several local  associations    receive    special   grants  from the Government purely for exhibition    purposes,   and    as    it stood,  there was   no   reason   why   Enderby  should   not    have   received a    grant  last year,   or   for   its   recent show.  However, the condition of affairs has  changed greatly,    and   since writing  you I have been able to obtain from  the Premier, through the Live Stock  Commissioner,    a   verbal promise of  any money needed for the further development of    the   poultry industry;  therefore, instead of having the Northern Okanagan  Poultry Association  become an   incorporated association,  I hope you will   refrain from taking  action towards    this end at present,  as we,are now endeavoring to organise a Provincial Poultry Association.  At present the    Vancouver, Victoria,  Nanaimo and    Ashcroft Associations  are not incorporated, though they receive, as   above    stated,    grants for  their     shows,     consequently     it   is  deemed advisable   that the Northern  Okanagan Poultry Association should  not   become   incorporated.     When  a  Provincial Association   is   organized  and receives grants from the Government, it will look after the interests  of the local organizations.   In other  words, in future,   thc   local Associations will receive   their   aid and encouragement   through   the Provincial  Association.  The matter of organizing a Provincial Poultry Association should be  of very great interest to all poultry-  men,=-and���������������������������cspccially=to-the-Poultr-y-  Associations of the Province, since  they are the leaders in the advancement of the industry. There is a  great .need for a Provincial Poultry  Association, and I believe that when  it is formed much will be accomplished. This association will strive  to advance the poultry industry of  B. C. ns expediently as possible, having due consideration for each individual of the association.  The 13. C. Stock Breeders' Association nnd other associations are accomplishing much, and there is even  a greater field for work in connection  with a B. C. Poultry Association. It  would be engaged chiefly in arousing  interest in the industry throughout  the Province, in giving the general  public an idea of the importance of  the industry to the. Province, and in  endeavoring to secure larger grants  for various purposes, such as poultry  shows throughout the Province, a  Winter Poultry Show, egg collecting  stations,   etc. Probably it would  take up the work of assisting poultrymen in securing their breeding  stock, and would also probably take  up the question of the buying of  feed, materials, etc., and the marketing of produce.  This will give an idea of the work  which could be done if a Provincial  Poultry Association were organized.  I feel assured that the Northern .Okanagan Poultry Association can do  much towards arousing the interest  of the poultrymen in the Valley, and  impressing upon them the need of  such an Association. I shall be very  glad to have the opinion of your Association on the matter.  I trust that this suggestion may  meet with your approval, and I hope  that I may hear from you in thc near  future.  Believe me, Yours truly,  M. A.  JULL, Poultry Expert.

Wenatchee and North Yakima  ranchers have often enough netted  $2,000 per acre on .one season's work.  They think there is something wrong  if their net profits are not $500 per  acre.
