T. Reid of lution    endorsing    the  Vernon, from Mr. W. B.  Scott, Deputy   Minister    of   Agriculture,   gives  further particulars of the success of  our    Okanagan   exhibit   in    the Old  Country:  "You will be  we again   won  tural Society's  pleased to hear that  the Royal Horticul-  Gold. Medal at Vincent Square, and in addition seven  other medals for individual exhibits.  The show that -we made there this  year was the biggest that has ever  been put up in Great _ Britain and  consisted of nearly 500 ~ cases. The  Okanagan was - very well, represented  and there were" numberless enquiries  from prospective settlers. The Okanagan Fruit Union secured a silver-  gilt Banksian, and Sterling & Pit-  cairn a silver-gilt Knightian, so that  I. consider- the . Okanagan people  should be pleased with their success  in the Old Country this year.  "The Islington 'show opened yesterday. His Majesty the King made a  special visit to the gallery-to see the  British Columbia- display. He: expressed himself as delighted with it  and seemed to take a great interest  in everything that was told him. We  have now exhibited at twenty cen-  ' tres and have still six more at-which"  to show. This will bring our exhibition work to an end, and I shall then  have had quite enough of. it for a  time.  "I met a great many people at the  Royal Horticultural and elsewhere  who knew the Okanagan well, and  they were all very much pleased with  the great showing made by the fruit."  From a private letter we are permitted to get some "inside" information,, showing what has been done by  the fruit from Enderby.  "I think you would like to hear  that I met Mr. Redman,", says the  writer, "who is greatly interested in  B: C fruit culture and holds a post  at the Imperial Institute. He told  me that at the. big fruit show at the  Horticultural Hall,.Westminster, Mr.  Lawes' fruit won second best of all,  the famous Widow Smith, of Spence's  Bridge, winning first, but that Mr.  -Lawes'-"were-the-best^packed^ofany5  shown .from B. C, and had all the  natural bloom on them when shown  "at the exhibition. He, Mr. Redman,  was- greatly struck by this fruit and  made a point of showing it to the  Duke and Duchess of Argyle, as being  exhibits from a town in which his  friends are interested. I was rather  pleased, as he and I quarrel dreadfully over irrigated and non-irrigated  fruit. I have always told him he  "must "wait to see" the fruit "from Bnderby."  This friend, writing from London,  brings out the point that is always  commended where Enderby fruit is  shown. It stands up well���������������������������retains its  rich, natural glow. This was the  great point mentioned in its favor  by the buyers in the Australian market. It is a point that cannot be  ignored when catering to a distant  market, and is one that will yet be  the means of making Enderby apples  famous in every apple market in the  world.  reso-  project. The  intention was to .get the endorsement  of all the towns in the Valley to the'  scheme in embryo, and then go to  the Old Country, and get $2,000,000 to  carry it out���������������������������in other words to have  something tangible in' the way of  possible business as a sort of guarantee for the bonds it would be necessary to issue. He asked for a resolution giving the -proposed enterprise a franchise for 25 years, for the  furnishing of light and power in Bnderby.  The City Council heard the proposition with favor, and thought there  would be no obstacle- placed in the  way of its - consummation if, when  the company is prepared to talk business, a proposition is submitted to  the city showing wherein it' would be  advantageous for the city .to grant  such franchise. .

G. Warren and G.  S. B. Perry, on behalf of the Cou-  teau Power Company. -  The Couteau Power Co., is a company of Okanagan men, incorporated  under the limited liability Act, and  its purpose is to develop power from  Shuswap Palls, and generate electricity to supply, all the lights and  power to be used in all of the Okanagan towns, and in addition to this  to build and operate tram lines to  cover the territory adjacent to all of  the towns, for the convenience of  the public. Mr. Warren, who was  spokesman for the Company, said he  did not have a definite proposition to  make at this time, but wished tp explain the purposes of the company  and. if the   Council  deemed it advis-  WHEN Enderby was young  the Enderby hotel was an inn  ���������������������������or tavern���������������������������Thomas W. Patterson, . now. LieutenantrGovernor _of  this mighty province of ours, used to  hang his Dutch socks on a wire  strung about the stove, and in other  ways assisted the early pioneers in  making the place as home-like as  possible. Mr. Patterson was then a  railroad builder, and he was engaged  in the construction of the Okanagan  branch of railway which has since  operated in the Valley. One of the  things which Mr. Patterson did at  that time���������������������������it was something like 18  years ago���������������������������was to erect a stable on  Mill street and for a long time after  it became useless, he refused to remove it. Another thing that Mr.  Patterson did at that time���������������������������somewhere about 18 years ago���������������������������was to  erect a shed in which to store construction material on the railway  right-of-way directly in front of the  handsome residential property of the  manager of the Columbia Flouring  Mills Company. ,Mr. Patterson has  been appealed to time and time again  to remove this old construction shed,  but it still stands. It is directly in  line with the station and obstructs  the view of the engineers as the incoming train approaches, is a most  disreputable land-mark, and is filled  with a lot of junk that would not  bring thirty cents in a two million  dollar deal. It is a disgraceful old  rattle-trap, and has been out of commission fifteen years. In recent years  all efforts to have the building removed have met with sphinx-like  silence. Perhaps now that Mr. Patterson   has  been   made   Lieutenant-  W  Governor he will take enough interest  in this end of the province as to assist the little town of Enderby to  make thc approach to the city by  rail a little bit more respectable.  ooo  ITH   the    opening   of   the new  year our citizens should take  ������������������������������������������������������ up the matter of policing the  City., of, Enderby; _In the past,_ this  most important function of civil government has been very poorly observed, and as a result our city bylaws are all but dead-letters. They  are put on the statute book and forgotten through our not having an  officer conversant with them with  power to see that they are enforced.  Heretofore the City Council has taken upon itself the appointment i of all  constables and special police, and  has had general supervision of the  policing of the city. No doubt they  have done so'because our police commissioners have failed to do their  duty. But as a Council, they have  no legal right on the premises whatever. .. They may as well usurp the  powers of the Board of School Trustees, and appoint our school teachers  and carry on the business of the  board. Each year the police commissioners are appointed. They shall  consist of the Mayor, one councilman  and a citizen not on the Council. The  law prescribes that these commissioners shall have charge, and it shall be  their duty, to take absolute control  of the policing of the city. They  shall report what policemen are in  their opinion necessary, and,make  such appointment as they deem fit,  and fix the salary to be paid, just as  our board of school trustees does in  relation to school teachers, and it  shall be up to the city council to  pay the salary named, and also such  other expenditure as the police commissioners recommend for the carrying out of the laws and the mainten-  M-  ance of peace. There are many reasons why Enderby should have a regular policeman, .and one capable and  willing to perform his duties without  fear, favor or prejudice, and it is up  to our police commissioners for the  coming year, to find the man and fill  the bill.  ooo  AGISTRATE ROSOMAN was  - -recently approached- -by- -the  peaceful old Indian whose  home is on thc reserve at the point  in the bend of the river where the  young people were wont to skate in  the early part of the winter. The old  man had a complaint, and one which  should lead us to question how far  all our churches, Sunday Schools and  other Christianizing influences have  brought us in advance of the Siwash,  at least in the matter of human  kindness. , The old Indian had been  away from his home since skating  began, and on his return he found  his fence broken down, his wood pile  burned and his house entered and the  windows broken. The fence rails-and  his cord wood had been used by the  skaters to build bonfires on the river  shore, and he presumed the white  boys had entered his home and broken his windows. "What would you  think," he said to .Mr. Rosoman, "if  old white man ' go way and Indian  come," burn his wood, break down his  fence, and get into his house and  break window?"  ooo  Postmaster-Harvey has been all but  swamped with work the past week.  The delay of the incoming mail two  days before Christmas, and then the  two days mail coming upon him just  when the biggest mail of the year  was due, caused���������������������������or almost caused���������������������������a  blockade, but he now has the tables  cleared and everything is normal,  ooo  Write it 1910.  ment in the .hands'of a skilled', perr.'  former.

H.  Barnes   and   Graham   Rosoman, Indian Francois   Joe    was charged by  Special   Constable   Bailey with having   inflicted   grevious   bodily injury  on Roderick McLeod, by striking him  ou the head with a sling loaded with  lead, and   cutting   him   on   the arm  with a  knife or other sharp instrument.   The cut in the arm was a bad  one, being five inches long, and hav7  ing to be sewn up and bandaged by  Dr. Keith.   McLeod presented an ap- -  pearance of somewhat worse for wear  on coming into court, and the sling,,  which was    produced   in    court and ,  .consisted of    a    blood-stained handkerchief with a ball of lead tied  in ,.  the  centre,     was     an   ugly-looking  weapon.   It was taken from the In- .'  dian last Saturday evening.   Prisoner  pleaded guilty, and was sentenced to  eighteen months' hard labor.  It having transpired in the course  of the hearing- that McLeod had supplied the Indian with liquor, the "���������������������������"  Court ordered him .under arrest.- He  was found guilty and fined $50.00  with costs, or, in default of payment  to go to goal for six months.  The two prisoners, hand-cuffed together, were taken by Special' Constable Bailey, on Monday evening, to  Kamloops, there to reflect on the  consequences of celebrating Christmas  Day not wisely but too well.

I.ice is used to advantage as a  border for creamed meats and vegetables.  Put a bit of camphor away with  silver not in use; it will prevent  tarnishing.  Hard boiled eggs are suifcable accompaniments for boiled fish or  molded spinach.  When food cooking starts to  burn, place at once in pan of cold  water; ifc will remove all scorched  taste.  To clarify fat, after-frying throw  in a few slices of raw potato, and  simmer' all for a few minutes.  Boiled or fried potatoes make an  excellent garnish for fish, with the  addition of parsley and lemon.  To skin sardines, dip   each into  ^ \ :hcn=-rn ,'ik-i n g-sauco^se!  ter in the sfewpan first, and when  bubbling hot add the flour. Stir  both together for a few minutes,  and then add the water, milk, or  stock, and stir again till it boils.

Hutchison  ENDERBY  We can   still show  the Goods  Some  prime  stall-fed  beef  cut at the present time  Our Sausage is still a  Leader  on  nThc year that has passed has seen  substantial progress made by Enderby and District.   No year in the life  of the town has seen a more substantial growth, or left us, with brighter  hopes of    the   future.     Enderby has  accepted the place    assigned to her���������������������������  the Gateway of the glorious Okanagan���������������������������and is making   good up to the  limit of her possibilities.   The surest  way to   reform   and   inspire a community, or to get the best out of a  country and bring the best into it, is  for the individual to reform and inspire himself.   The rest will take care  of itself.   And the best way to make  the Okanagan one big red apple paradise is to make your home and your  home   grounds   and   your   town one  small red  apple  paradise.    Improve,  beautify,    develop   your home town,  and the rest will take care of itself.  This is the policy that Enderby has  adopted, and the results are manifold  on all sides.  The coming year is full of promise.  Increase, development, improvement,  progress are promised on all hands.  The past year and its progress, while  not forgotten or ignored by any of  our citizens, will not suffice. All feel  that the good work has only begun���������������������������  it is not ended.  Next year's cut of the A. R. Rogers  Lumber mill, instead of being 12,-  000,000 as heretofore, will be 20,000,-  000. The capacity of the Columbia  Flouring Mills will be increased from  300 barrels a day to 500 barrels.  Our orchards and farms will double  their output; and in every line of  development we shall see operations  greatly enlarged.  In another column Mr. Chas. W.  Little tells us what the outlook is in  the investment line, and Mr. Little is  speaking only for himself. No doubt  other real estate men could give as  encouraging reports. Certainly, the  Northern Okanagan is coming into  its own.  big returns   have   been given for the  assistance  thus  far  given.     Nothing  has been a better advertisement for  the district, or has brought Enderby  more favorable criticism.   If the annual show is to be made a permanent thing for Enderby,  it is imperative that a suitable exhibition building be provided.     It    is  understood  that the K.  of P.  hall    will    not be  available another year,  and, besides,  it is not large enough to accommodate    thc   exhibition.     If a building  cannot be    provided    here, the Association will be forced to go elsewhere  in  order to accommodate the  splendid exhibitions it is furnishing.   Enderby cannot   well   afford to let the  poultry show go elsewhere.   We have  a whole year   before   us in which to  provide suitable quarters, and it behooves us to make the best of it as  early as spring building commences.

Hassard's  Al Dairy butter. Poison Mercantile  Company, Enderby.  The    Northern    Okanagan   Poultry  Association is to be congratulated on  the success of its second year's poultry show.     It   was in every way superior to that of a year ago, and in  many respects   the    finest display of  fancy poultry that has been seen in  the interior.     A    great   deal  of the  credit for excellence of the exhibition  should  go to the retiring president,  Mr. H.  E.    Waby,   and    the retiring  secretary,    Mr.   J.  C.  English.     The  bulk of   the   labor   attached to this  exhibition as well as the first, fell to  these officers,    and    they   unselfishly  performed the work without stint or  price.    The  Association is  now  well  launched,   and   it   is    only just and  reasonable that others should fall into line and take up the work.  Mr. Petar, the new president, and  Mr. Robinson, the new secretary, are  thoroughly conversant with the work  of the Association, having been closely associated with it from its inception, and we may expect the good  work to go on under their guidance  as well as it has advanced under the  retiring officers. The season now  opening promises even better than  la_fc._..__!_____^_ Association._will_profit  "by past mistakes, and many difficulties will be overcome thereby.  It is now the intention of the Association to erect a ��������������������������� building suitable  for exhibition purposes. It is not  certain that sufficient funds can be  raised for the purpose, but certainly  no investment could be made by the  city of Enderby that would bring  more certain returns. The Poultry  Association has asked but little, and  t The less we know about a good  thing the more ready we are to condemn it. Evidently the good people  of Peachland are peaches with the  blush on. If we are to judge them  by what a Peachland correspondent  says in the Vernon News, we should  say they were a cross between a  clingstone ancl the bark of a rhino-  cerous, with one eye, no ears and a  tail down the centre.- The correspondent says:  "On Friday last, many of the residents of    Peachland   were   fortunate  enough to have the chance of seeing  Miss May Roberts-Gillard's company  in their fine performance of "Madam  Satan."   The    audience   were    more  than delighted with the acting of this  company,     and      the     management/  should they return, will be welcomed  and gratified by a much larger house.  It is to be regretted that some persons should have considered it necessary to stump the town and do their  best to pass judgment on a performance they had never seen, condemn it  as immoral, and incidentally   try to  persuade the local authorities to forbid its   production.    Whilst most of  us here appreciate efforts to preserve  us from all worldly contact, we most  emphatically   object   to    having our  morals   regulated    by    those holding  narrow-minded  views  of life.   *   *   *  Peachlanders    may    have the reputation of possessing a large element of  the   'unco    guid,"    but   after all we  have a large and growing population  of straight-forward, clean-minded and  much-travelled    residents    who know  when to attend    clean,    healthy performances and when to reject the unclean, without the assistance of those  holding extreme   and   narrow-minded  opinions." .  Thursday, December 30, 1909  TURKEY    RAISING  There should be.big money in raising turkeys. Locally bred birds are  selling at the butcher shops at 30  cents a pound, while 28 cents is  charged for the imported article.���������������������������  Vernon News.  It was a great surprise and a great  disappointment to Mr. Jull, the provincial poultry inspector, who visited  the Northern Okanagan poultry show  recently held at Enderby, to find that  there was not a turkey on exhibition  He said our poultrymen were asleep  to one of the best-paying branches of  the industry. The Okanagari Valley  he believed, should make an ideal  home for the turkey, and he hoped to  see that branch of the industry developed.  After  the  Holidays  We find ourselves face to  face with the every-day  problems of life. One of  these is to get the best  value that money will buy  in the staple articles of the  home.

Now everybody  will admit that dogs have some virtues and some   faults which- men do  not possess.     But   the worst mange  cur you ever   saw   is a white angel  along side   of   the   brute who packs  a doctored   beeksteak about to hand  to a hungry   dog.     The average canine is a most industrious digger of  holes in the summer time, and a pest  about the stove in winter.. The theory is that he   is - going to lie down  in the hole he digs, but he doe's no  such thing.   He goes and lies down in  the middle   of   the    sidewalk,  where  people will   have   to   step over him.  In the winter you think, he. will just  get warm, and then move on, but he  doesn't; he stays.   He never .will get  out of anybody's way.   He even lies  down in the middle of the street and  tries   to   make   carts,   wagons   and  automobiles    avoid   him.   Somebody  has said that   the   average dog does  not enjoy as   large a vocabulary as  the.powdered puff or skigums dog. A  phrase like "Does urns -want urns itty  bass?"    would   scare   him to death.  His advantages   have   not been such  as to acquaint   him   with such hifa-  lutin talk,  but he does know a few  simple   phrase    like    "Get to blazes  out of here, you dimmed pest!"   He  understands   that   perfectly; so give  him a chance till the robins come.  from ��������������������������� his home, and, struggling  against his fatherly affection, tries  to make himself believe that his act  was that of a just and God-fearing  man. He is transformed from an  ascetic and literal believer in the  Calvinistic'' interpretation of the  scriptures to one who, after all, sees  some good in the Golden Rule. All  this is very beautifully brought out  in the play. The comedy element in  the piece -is ��������������������������� strong and persistent.  Its chief exponent is Postie, whose  droll philosophy and witticisms are  an excellent, foil for the more serious portions of "the play.    -  in connection with the Ashcroft public school.

Mr. C. P. Walker has. kindly  cancelled one of. his regular star  course, performances in order to send  this sweet play. ' This Scotch comedy  drama, which so well combines several of ' Ian-, McLaren's best known  stories of life in Drumtochty, is' sure  to please all theatre-goers, especially  our Scotch populace, as it is full of  the atmosphere of the thistle, the  heather, and "Dear Auld Scotland."  The play is, wonderfully true to life  in its delineation of Scotch character, such characters as may even now  be found in country towns in Scot:  land where the Calvinistic doctrines  of redemption and damnation are  lived _up to so closely that domestic  ties are apt' to become sacrificed on  what the : "unco guid" consider the  altar of religious duty.  In Iachlan "Campbell is shown.one  whose heart is overflowing with tender love for his motherless daughter,  yet he, in a moment of what he  deems   righteous    wrath,   drives her  Those whq.'��������������������������� attended the Enderby  poultry show bring back reports of a  splendid display of, birds, and keen  competition;  There were\about 400 birds on show  and the judge, H. H. Collier, of Ta-  coma,. expressed his surprise at the  high standard already attained by  the poultry breeders of the Okanagan  Valley. Of the three exhibitors from  Summerland, H. Bristow won a first  and a second with his Silver Spangled Hamburgs; C, N. Borten's Single Comb White Leghorn cock won a  first prize.  Some of the .birds on exhibition  were first-prize winners at the Yukon-  Alaska-Pacific and were recently imported by the owners who paid very  fancy prices for them. Mr. M. A.  Jull, the provincial poultry inspector who recently visited Summerland  was at the show and was i greatly de-"  lighted with the class of birds exhibited.���������������������������Summerland Review.

One does not wonder at the influence which the English Government has ._ long exorcised upon.- the world when, hc  studies at close quarters this organized and thoroughly business  engine of destruction.

Few soldiers have stuck  to_ their post of duty in a better  spirit than the telegraph operator  in the following story :  He died not long since, an old  man, in Calcutta, with the grand  recollection that he had performed  a deed which contributed greatly to  save the Indian empire in the stressful days of thc Mutiny.

COMPELLING BENEFICENCE.  There are better thoughts around  thc Inflexible than the suggestions  of carnage and of war written in  its sombre cannon and its rattling  guns. Thc battleship Inflexible is  not only the engine tli rough which  England makes war upon its enemies and defends itself from its  foes, but it is just as ranch the compelling beneficence 'by which it  keeps the peace of its own little island and of the world.  MODEL FOR AMERICA.  Wc American people have just as  much or' more need than England  for a mighty navy to maintain thc  supremacy of our prestige and our  commerce upon the seas. Wc need  just as much as England the-strong  defence which results in unequalled  guns.  Iy the  .i.h..!>il.._ls"Foi::i.<!    to be of  Lowest Type.  An interesting account of the pagan tribes brought under British  administration by a recent military  patrol in the remote parts of thc  Nigerian Province of Muri, on the  Upper Bcnue, has'been received at  London. In many cases the villages visited had never before been  seen by a white man.  The relations between the Government and thc Vv'urkum people���������������������������  the tribe chiefly concerned ��������������������������� had  never been friendly, and the three  expeditions previously sent against  them.having had no satisfactory result, a frc.li force was sent into thc  country in consequence of attacks  upon traders, and also for the purpose of finally bringing the Wnrk-  urn' under control.  The people arc described aa being of tho lowest type, every village being cannibal. Worship consists of the worst form of fetish.  In most cases the entire population  is, naked.  "The force started from Gateri, on-  the borders of thc Bauchi and  Muri Provinces, some thirty miles  north of the Bcnuc, and marched  in a southeast direction over entirely new country, of which nothing  was known except thc extremely  bad character of the people. The  first places visited are described as  ''''shocking,'"' thc inhabitants being  among thc lowest.  A  large meeting    of    thc  people  because of illness, Mrs-,  pregnaled a pound of candy with  arsenic, laid a pretty, new lace  handkerchief on top of the candy  as a delicate and suspicion-disarming attention, signed ''Mrs. C," to  a note that read, '''With love to  yourself and baby," and quietly  dropped the fatal gift in a package,  mail box at Stockton, Gal., nearly  a dozen yars ago.   ���������������������������  Her rival, with a sister to whom  she gave some of  within  the enndv.  died  deadly  home.  a few hours after eating the  sweets  in    her    Delaware  was W.

' This  message, forthwith repeated to  every town which could be reached  proved of priceless value. Colonel  Edward Viba-rfc, in his "''Sepoy Mutiny,'' tells thc story of ��������������������������� how, to  quote the judicial commissioner of  the Punjab, '''the electric telegraph  saved India."  It was thc custom to close the  telegraph offices on Sunday between the hours of 9 and <1 o'clock.  On May 10, 1S57, as the operator at  Delhi was about Lo close his station  he received a message from the  Meerut office announcing an -uprising in lhat section. At 4- o'clock,  when the office was reopened, connections with Meerut were found to  bo, interrupted.

MODERN BORGIA.  Jane Toppen used her position as  nurse to poison, all told, thirty-one  victims, neither innocent youth nor  helpless ago being immune from her  fiendish malignity.  She- was congcnilally devoid of the  quality of human sympathy, and she  poisoned for the pleasure of seeing  her patients die. Her father and  mother were  both drunkards;  thc  thc chief sent thc two  lads to test thc cable across the  river. They found they could signal to Delhi, but. not to Meerut and  reported the fact on- their return.  IL was too late to do anything that  night, but the next morning, Mr.  Todd, the chief, went out himself .to  investigate thc line. Hc never returned, and, although his fate is  unknown, there is little" doubt that  he was murdered.  The office was thus left in charge  of thc two lads. ��������������������������� Signs of trouble  began to be evident close at hand.  Brcudish, stepping from" the door;  met a wounded officer, who cried  out to him, "For God's sake get in.  side and close your doors!"  The .revolt crept closer and closer. Thc boys felt that their lives  were in danger; soon they became  sure o .'it. But before they fled to  a" place of comparative safety they  waited to send out to thc Indian  world the news of the revolt. Brcudish ticked out tho message which  leads Sir Edward to say :  "Look at thc coura_c and sense  of that little boy !

A Paris  with thc lo\  it  deal  ing  con temporal'  ve of great men for animals, gives an amusing account of  Chateaubriand and his monkey.  When hc was engaged in preparing  Fontanc's works for the press, on  returning one day hc was met"by  the monkey.  "All, you rogue," said Chateaubriand, "your shamefaced look tells  of mischief." Thc monkey was  chained up, but as things did not  appear much disturbed Chateaubriand thought no more of the matter until it was ..time' to resume  work. Fontanc's manuscripts were  not to be found.  At last Chateaubriand looked into  the waste paper basket, and there  were the manuscripts. The monkey had watched his master, and as  he had seen him fold;a sheet of paper and tear it into four, so he had  dealt with Fontane's writings. With  much labor they were pieced together and afterward published.  Chateubriand thought it advisable  to see what else the monkey had  done. His orders had disappeared  from a drawer which was always  kept closed. The servants searched everywhere for them, but they  were not to be found. Nearly a  week elapsed before they were  traced, ancl then a domestic noticed that the monkey had suspended  them to the cornice in a quasi symmetrical way.  The monkey was given his conge,  and Chateaubriand .replaced him  by a eat, which was allowed a placo  on his master's writing table, and  great was the pleasure ho derived in  playing with puss.���������������������������London Globe".  vey thc transport.  ��������������������������� At the present time many of our,  Army horses are being used three,  times over.

Possible   this   may also bo  partly  accounted  for  by  the  fact!  that large numbers of men who had  never previously   been astride     a  horse learnt lo ride during the waiy  but it is also largely due to the fact'  that, with the adoption of the mot-,  or, people of means get 'far loss exercise in other ways than they did  formerly. ������������������������������������������������������'���������������������������('���������������������������  The-."consequence is that there has,.  been a hig "boom" in horse riding-  for pleasure, not only amongst  those who can afford to keep a>  horse of their own, but amongst  others who can only afford to hire  a mount for a Saturday or Sunday  afternoon's ride.  ._#,  What a   grand    old world    this  would be to live in -if opportunity (  knocked at a man's door as often  as the bill'collector. j  An aristocratic papa, on being  requested by a rich and vulgar  young fellow for permission to marry "one of his girls," gave this ra-i  ther crushing rsply :���������������������������"Certainly ;  which would you prefer, the nursemaid or the cook J"  /  I  W  ,<J  4  1  4  I  I  _i  ._  _w  I  !_  (M M  -I  O  WHAT NEGLECT  DID-FOR HIM  JAS.

There are lots  of reasons for thi . but one of the best is that  in practically all cases of piles where the use  ot Zam-Buk is persevered with, complete cure  ���������������������������not merely relief���������������������������is the result.  Mrs. Win. Hughes, of 253, Hochclaca  Street, Hochelujja, Montreal, says:������������������������������������������������������" I  suffered from blind, itcliinjj, and protruding  piles for years. Sometimes they were so bad  ih-it I could hardly bear to move about. The  infhmm.tion, the burning smarting pain, the  throbbing, the aching, the overpowering feelings of duh.ess and dark despair which this  ailment brings, the shooting spnsms of agony  ���������������������������all were so terrible that ������������������nly sufferers from  this awful ailment can understand ! "  Bad as this case was, Zam-Buk triumphed,  and Mrs. Hughes suffers no longer. It _nly  needed a little perseverance with Zam-Iiuk,  and in the end complete cure resulted.  Mrs. E. I_xall, of Scott Street, St. Thomas,  sayS ;���������������������������"For months without cessation I endured great pain from bleeding piles. For as  many months I tried everything which I  thought would give nie ease,' but in the end,  di*pi>itefl and still suffering, I j������������������ftve in.''  Then it was she heard of Zam-Buk, and  she adds:���������������������������" Although I feared Zim-Buk  would be like the ordinary remedies���������������������������useless  ���������������������������I am glad it was not. It'soon proved'itself  to be very different. It rapidly gave me relief,  and after a time cuied me completely. I  ;would like to let all sufferers from piles know  what a grand-thing Zam-Buk is."  ..Mr. F. Astiidge, 3, St. Paul Street, St.  Catherine's, says :���������������������������" For five years I suffered  untold agony from piles. At times the pain  was so bad I could have screamed aloud.  On a friend's advice I tiled a box of Zam-Buk.  It gave nie considerable ease, and I persevered  with the treatment until I was cured. I wish  I could convince every sufferer from piles of  the value of this great herbal balm."  So one could go on quoting ca.se after case, -  .and it is by working such cures that Z .n-Buk  has earned for itself its great reputation.  .Now if you MifLi from L_i. terribly painful  ailment just be guided oy the foregoi&g cases!

T. HOLTBY  Furniture Dealer and Undertaker  BRADLEY BLK.       ENDERBY  Some two years ago an Association  was formed at Bnderby, having a cooperative system in view. The promoters did not expect to revolutionize or change the whole system of  the   poultry   industry;   but. .they did  hope���������������������������and still hope���������������������������in time to remedy certain existing conditions, which  are greatly to the disadvantage of  the industry as a whole. At the  present time thousands of dollars are  lost to the Valley through the importation of eastern eggs; consequently it is of vital importance that  the poultrymen here should produce  sufficient quantities to supply the  home market at least.  The hen to-day may be considered  the most profitable producer of the  raw material on the land into a  high-priced product���������������������������thc egg. This  system of economizing���������������������������together with  the income from the eggs produced���������������������������  should prove profitable.  As to choice of birds. There is no  "best breed" of poultry- Buy good  birds that o are pure-bred. A cheap  bird is always a poor one. It will  eat as much as a good bird, but will  not give the returns for the food  consumed.  I trust this will satisfy some of the  every-day enquiries.  G. S. ROBINSON,  Sec.  Poultry Association.

With  the figures for November and December still to be received from various  registration offices, it is expected the  entry list for the year will show over  11,000 Americans as homestead applicants. These homeseekers���������������������������the  best class of homeseekers tbe world  can produce���������������������������will bring into Canada  probably on an average ������������������5,000 each,  which would mean $5,000,000 added  to our financial wealth.  This does not . represent a drop in  the bucket of the actual wealth coming into Canada from the American  side seeking investment in our mines  and lumber industries, oil wells, railroads, etc. But these homesteaders  bring with them what is infinitely  more important than their wealth���������������������������  they come with their natural pluck  and energy, and the know how, to  make a home with us.  British capital is also coming to  Canada in large amounts. A despatch cabled from London a few days  ago states that $35,000,000 had been  deposited in the past few months in  the banks of Canada by British investors. "That sum does not begin  to represent the amount sent over in  the last half year," says the Vancouver Province. "More than that sum  has been transmitted to the prairie  provinces alone; very large sums have  come to British Columbia, and it is  impossible to suppose that Ontario  and the maritime provinces have not  been as largely, if not more largely,  recognized."
