C, December 16, 1909  AN D      W A LKER'S      WEEKLY  Vol. 2; No. 42; Whole No. .94  Winter Poultry Show  and the Prize Winners  . The second annual Winter Poultry  Show, which opened in K, of P. hall,  Enderby, last Wednesday, and continued until Friday night, was a very  great success, and most creditable to  the poultrymen of the Valley.  There were in all thirty-five exhibitors, averaging-10 birds each..  The quality of the Exhibition as a  whole, as well as the number of birds  shown,- was- immeasurably ahead of  last years Show, as will be seen by  reference to the general high scoring  of.the exhibits. It had to be a good  j bird���������������������������a" top-notcher���������������������������to   pull down a  jl prize.   There   were    dozens   of birds  .. that followed the winners by only a  few points, and to the novice looked,  "just as good.", There were some  <birds that won prizes at the Seattle  Fair, and they had to take second  place. And some of our first-prize  birds last year had to be satisfied  with, a ribbon this. _  And, yet, the . highest scoring bird  _ this year dropped .three points below last year's "top-notcher."  - One lesson ��������������������������� our poultrymen learned  this year: The ,show was at least a  month too. early. It caught the .birds  too near the molt, and all were cut  on account of poor feathers. This  made the scoring several' points lower than it should have been, and reduced the general average.  The judging by H. H. Collier, the  Tacoma expert,   was highly satisfactory,   and   he   took ��������������������������� great pains to  1 point out the defects where any ex-  . isted, and to suggest remedies. -   He  , was particularly pleased, at the general high quality of the Show, and  complimented the poultrymen on the  splendid results of their labors.  There was one-point brought out at  this show that was not in evidence  before, and it might interest poultrymen generally. A crowing cock  got a special prize of $3.00 on the  musical quality of his crow. And he  had strong competition, Mr. A. L.  t Fortune was the donor and also acted as Judge of. this particular point.  Wm. Pound's Black Orpington bird  was the winner. It was just beautiful the way he could hold that last  "=^=" hoter=^  -  ���������������������������   Harry Bristow, Summerland���������������������������White  Plymouth Rock: Pullet, not scored.

The exhibits from the southern end  of the Valley were more numerous  than last year, and the quality of  the birds quite as high, but they did  not figure in the prize-winners as  freely as the management would like  to have had them. They were up  against keener competition. In the  white breeds, Mrs. F. C. Waddell en-  . tered 40 birds, and it was an array  of poultry beauty the equal of which  ~ would be hard to find. "Mr. Welch,"of  Okanagan Landing, was showing in  these classes, and, inspite of the fact  that he has something pretty nice, hc  went home without a prize. Mr.  Welch is not a poor loser, however.  He recognized at once that his birds  were not in the same class, and was  satisfied with the judging.  The same may be said of Mr. Schell  of Rutland, while the other Okanagan  Lake exhibitors, also Vernon and  Armstrong, were up against strong  competition in other breeds.

She sighed drearily as she reflected that in all ihe forty-live  years of hor life there had been  very few indeed when she had been  free from tlie presence of tlio Problem.  As a. light-hearted girl in her  poor, care-burdened father's vicarage���������������������������dear, dear, what wonderful  apples they had been that grew in  thc vicarage orchard l���������������������������its presence had scarcely troubled her;  but, .till, she was weil aware that  it was there. As a bride of a year's  standing, she had come to under-  .fand dimly that it was a very I'eal  thing, but ifc was not until her babies came that she had begun to  long that the solution would present itself.  For hers was thc everlasting and  ever-troublesome problem of  pence.  And yet, she reflected, grim and  acute though thc problem generally  was, there were some whom it did  not disturb, though it was ever with  them. Tier husband, for instance  ��������������������������� dear, cheery, handsome Val Che-  fcham���������������������������never allowed poverty to  weigh upon his spirits. He had  been so sure that one or more of  these wonderful inventions of his  would provide the wished-for solution. But none ever did; und she  believed tliat it was only when he  was dying that he realized that the  problem was a grim, serious reality..  Since his death it had  inorc  importunate,  inary bogies- I have never tried to Wh  hide, from you the truth about our  poverty, and that has ..not always  been easy. In fact, I have always  liicd to bring you up with a regard  for thc    trutu���������������������������thc    plain  as my dear  endeavored Lo  I  -o*  unvar-  fathcr al-  inlo  m- .ho.  p.ished truth  ways  me !''

Admiral Rooke engaged the  Spanish galleons there, in Queen  Anne's reign, they certainly contained much treasure; and some  of this went down with them.  How much is problematical. In  the hurry and fury of the fight  there was little chance to take  stock of -individual happenings,  and it is a matter of common knowledge that the British Jack Tars  helped themselves to enormous  quantities of booty, thc bulk of  which never appeared in thc official  prize returns.  Indeed, when the fleet anchored  at Portsmouth after thc battle, the  innkeepers there bought great  stores of bar gold by thc pound afc  loss than one-half its real value, so  common was it, while doubloons  wero exchanged at three to the  guinea, although the two coins  were nearly equal as regards intrinsic worth.  The Spanish sailors and soldiers,  too looted a lob of 'both coined and  uncoined gold. Over .10,000,000  worth was landed afc one time, and  seized by thc Government; but as  in the case of thc British, what  was kept by thc purloincrs was far  in excess of that which the authorities contrived to regain possession  of.  Then, again, during the years immediately following the great" battle, scores of treasure-hunters,  somo authorized, many move-mere  piratical adventurers, hovered over  the spot, and unless rumor lies  most confoundly, many of them  reaped exceedingly, rich rewards.  Thus, one enterprising Scotsman,  named Dickson, recovered enough  silver to build a stately mansion in  Perthshire, which he christened  "Hollar House."  But it is worthy of note that he secured not a single oun.e of thc moro  precious metal, none of which hc  roundly asserted  was to be found  CORONER HAD HEAVY JOB  DUTIES  LIGHTER NOW TYI.AN  IN  OLDEN TIMES.  Had  Besides Holding Inquests He  to Value Goods _I-tt5o!_g_._.5  lo Felons.  Many quaint statements concerning coroners and their duties  are conta-ined in the first reportof  'the Departmental Committee appointed by thc British Home Sec-"  rotary to enquire into thc law relating to coroners and coroners'inquests and into thc practice in  ���������������������������coroners' courts.  According to Mr. James Brooke  Little, the contributor of an article on coroners to Lord Hals-  bury's Kucyclopaedia, the first  ���������������������������trustworthy knowledge of the coroner's of lice is a direction in )llM  1} the Crown to the justices in  eyre. There arc other allusions  referring to the time of King Alfred, who, said Mr. Little, seemed  tc have had a predilection, for  hanging his coroners because they  were unjust. Thc chief duties of  coroners now arc:���������������������������  To hold inquests on dead bodies.  To hold inquests on treasure  trove.  To act for thc sheriff when necessary.  Formerly Ihey also held inquests  ���������������������������in- cases of serious bodily injury,  prison brca .h, and housebreaking.  They held enquiries into all cases  of felony, treasure trove and  wreck. They also valued felons'  goods for forfeiture to the Crown.  Forfeiture for felony was only  abolished in 1870.

That is to saj,  when a person was killed, thc object by which he was killed was  valued' and forfeited lo thc Crown.  Mr. Little states this held good,  for instance, "if a, man was i.mj.-:  bv a bull or even, run down by a  ship. Tho bull was valued an-d^tho  price forfeited to the Crown. Tho  bull itself was killed, -lb was not  exactlv by direction of the coroner  that, the "bull was killed, because  1 think there was a notion thr.-fc it  came under the Levilical law.

Got (he Land When Worthless and  Hung On���������������������������Sonic Marriages  Helped.  The generally accepted modern  system in the real estate busino.s  it. to buy low and hang on for a  raise. The besfc example with which  history supplies us of tho. success  ofthis system is that of tho Westminster family.  Mr. Lloyd-George, British.Chancellor of tho Exchequer, in his  Limehouse speech, gave a striking  illustration of the enhanced value  ff tho Duke of Westminster's Loudon property when he stated" that  when Mr. Gorriuge, the well-known  London draper, wanted the lease  ���������������������������of the property he occupied renewed the Duke would only do so on  condition that ������������������4,000 a year .was  paid for .ground rent, instead of  tho few hundreds.as hitheto. Furthermore, Mr. Gorringe was obliged to; spend a' large amount on tho  erection of new premises a,nd pay  ia fine of ������������������5,000.  MANY MORE.  This lease, ho . _ver, i3 but" one  of many on the Duke of Westminster's property in Mayfair which  havo fallen in of, late years, and  vyhich have been renewed at enor-  ..mous premiums. As a matter of  ���������������������������fact, at the end of thirty years the  a. hole of the leases on the 400 acres  which the Duke owns in this aristocratic part of London will havo  ���������������������������fallen in, and his present income,  estimated at close upon ������������������200,000 a  year, will have increased fivefold. .  ONCE A MARSH.  It is diflicult to realize that this  land, on which some of London's  finest houses are erected���������������������������some of  them range in prico from 6,000  guineas to 20,000 guineas���������������������������was  worthless marsh when the Duke's  ���������������������������ancestors acquired it a couple of  centuries ago.  Nevertheless such was the case-  Parts of it were drained, and the  land let on long leases at low  rents. It is doubtful if thc Grosvonor of that day ever dreamt for  one moment that''his marshy land  would develop into the most fashionable quarter of London. Society,  in course-of time, migrated there,  and thus Bolgravc became the centre of wealth,, luxury, and fashion,  and helped to swell the- wealth of  the landowners.  riches so they made   shrewd pur-'  chases of further property,  whict.  increased in value as they calmiy  looked on.

For tho origin of thc Grosvonor  wealth, however, one must go ba-u.  many centuries, when Hugh Li  ous, who was head huntsman, or  Gros Vcnour (hence the name), to  William the Conqueror, performed  .such valiant deeds afc the Conquest  that- the '-Norman-Duke- made- him  Earl of Chester -and richly rewarded him with lands in the north.

In doing so  at this time we wish to call attention to and commend the splendid  spirit of unanimity which prevails  among our businessmen and merchants, T*ho do not share the petty  jealousies indulged in by some to the  detriment of themselves more than  anyone else. Our merchants have  adopted that liberal, broad spirit of  "live and let live," in everything  they do, and' in their trade relations  are exercising that tact, wisdom and  conservatism that is gradually centering at Enderby the business of the  Northern Okanagan.  Enderby has many features which  cannot but commend themselves to  anyone seeking to find a place to  make their future home. With such  magnificent country about the town,  contributing so much to its prosperity, and with this country growing  daily more important as its possibilities become better known and its  development becomes more thorough,  i and with tlie ever-increasing magnitude of our flouring mills and lumber  industry, it is not much wonder that  thc name of Enderby should focus  this way the interest of the settler  and home-seeker.  Quickly,   very   quickly, in the past  year the country about Enderby has  advanced to first place.   The spirit of  uncertainty has given place to one of  certainty,   and  the   "can't-be-didcrs"  no longer force their pernicious habit  upon tlie   community.     The   croaker  has made place for the booster, and  the knocker has laid away his little  hammer.     Turn    where . you will, in  any direction from Enderby, and you  will find    new    homes    erected,  finer  outbuildings   and   increased acreages  under thc plow and into fruit trees.  All this means still greater things  for 1910; greater development, greater revenue   from   the   land,   and increased   prosperity    for    all.   In the  Mabel Lake    Valley   there have been  fifteen or twenty settlers located upon government land in the past year.  These men   have    families, and have  come to stay.   They will develop the  land    the   coming    season,    and this  will   mean   more    settlers to follow.  The projection of thc Enderby-Mabel  Lake road   has    made   this possible.  Next year's   developments in' this vicinity will be very much greater.   It  is certain that the    Government will  build a   bridge   and    road to permit  the    settlors    of   Trinity    Valley   to  cross   the    Spallumcheen   river   and  have access    to    the    Enderby-Mabel  Lake   road,    thus   bringing them at  least 10 milesr nearer railway transportation.     OirHhc south side of the  river, as it flows from Mabel Lake to  Enderby, is a   country as yet unsettled for many    miles.    It is said by  Mr. Cooke,    who   has    travelled   the  many valleys   and    plateaus between  thc river    and   Trinity   Valley, that  there is, if anything, more land suitable for settlers on the south side of  the river   than    on   the    north side,  and with  the    proposed   government  road completed to Trinity Valley,and  they moved in their stock did not  fill one-half the space. To-day every  inch of the floor space, the walls,  ceilings, double-decks and counters  is needed to accommodate their big  stock, and they haven't room enough.  And few men can display goods with  greater economy of space than Mr.  Woods has exercised. They carry a  .$25,000 stock. They buy in nothing  short of car-load lots, and their  freight shed, with a capacity of six  car-loads, is usually well filled. They  do a general mercantile business, and  aim always to keep the best quality  of goods obtainable. Mr. Bell, while  the senior member of the firm, is not  actively engaged in the business. Mr.  Peel does the buying, and is general  manager of the business, while Mr.  Woods handles the stock and store  and has general supervision over the  sales department. Few towns the  size of Enderby can boast of as complete an establishment or one as well  handled.  Poison    Mercantile    Co.���������������������������This company, last April,    succeeded the firm  of Harvey    & .Dobson.   S. Poison is  the financial   head of the firm, while  Mr.  Speers, his    son-in-law, manages  the establishment.     Mr.    Speers is a  young man, but he is a young man  who has made good.   His experience  in the    mercantile   business has been  more extensive than his years would  indicate.     This   is   evident from the  able manner in which he has handled  the business since    taking hold eight  months ago.    He   tackled as hard a  proposition as   any   young man was  ever thrust   up    against, but he has  filled tho bill at every turn." Gradually he has lifted the business from  its position    "on   the rocks" to one  high in the estimation of the buying  public   and    his   business associates.  He    has'  been   ably   assisted by the  Poison    Brothers, ��������������������������� alert,    actire and  obliging.     It   is   Mr.    Speers happy  faculty to    have   the   right thing at  the right time and right price, and to  show it in the right way.    This, as  much as anything, has been responsible for the success he has made.. And  he believes, too, that there is nothing  too good for Enderby, and he makes  an effort to keep his stock complete  and up to the minute.   They carry a  ?15,000 stock.  a_brid_e ncr.osB_J.hc.,.

In view of this, and in  support of their confidence in thc  district, our merchants; one and all,  are bending every efTort to prepare  the way for Enderby to win and hold  the business of this vast country as  yet barely scratched. They are aiming, by sheer excellence of goods and  fair treatment to encourage and hold  the friendship of the people of this  favored section. That they arc succeeding is evident from thc size and  character of thc stocks carried. And  that they will'succeed in a still larger measure is certain, for there prevails that unanimity of .spirit yet  close rivalry so essential to progress  and the winning of big things.  in  Ti������������������^-the___.rear,.-...workmen   ar.e_...en.;aged   all classes of work coming under  these heads.

I  -.  _      a  Happy Yule-tide  and the Men Making It  (Continued from 4th page.)  Viuce raised by many of his customers  and keeps this market supplied from  I_nderby.  Wheeler &; Evans.���������������������������Seldom will one  find two young men more strongly  imbued with the desire to please their  customers than these young men. Mr.  Wheeler started in, business in Bnderby as clerk for Chas. Metcalfe, five  years ago. Then Mr. Metcalfe took  ::.im into partnership, and later, when  Mr. Metcalfe left for the Old Country.  Mr. Joe Evans, established his son,  Ernest in business by buying Mr.  Metcalfe's remaining interest. These,  young men handle a nice line _f clothing, boots and shoes and groceries.  They have built up and retain a very  comfortable family, trade, and exert  every effort to give satisfaction���������������������������the  .satisfaction that means so much to a  successful business institution. They  carry a .6,000 stock.  W. T. Holtby.���������������������������In May of this year  Mr.- Holtby put in a stock of furniture and undertaker's supplies, taking the small store-room formerly  occupied as a grocery and bake shop  by R. P. Bradley. Soon his business  demanded more room, and as soon as  he could get it, he occupied the entire Bradley block. Later he purchased the block, and now the building is filled with a complete stock of  the choicest furniture from cellar to  garret. ��������������������������� Mr. ��������������������������� Holtby has marked, his  goods 10 per cent lower than the prevailing prices in the Valley, and by.  strict attention to business and economy in handling, he is winning to  Enderby the trade of the locality.  At this season of the year, he is especially fortunate in having so much  in the line of suitable holiday gifts,  and will be Santa Claus in many of  our homes.  George R. Sharpe.���������������������������Before George  Sharpe opened his butcher-shop in  Enderby, on the 14th of March, 12  years ago, others had come, sold  meat, then folded their tent and  passed away. But George stuck. In  a little brick shop about the size of  a bake-oven, Mr. Sharpe established  himself, and for eight years he never  missed a sale over the original meat  block. Then, like all good businessmen, he built larger���������������������������his present establishment���������������������������and to further increase  his efficiency, two years ago he engaged G. H_ Smedley to handle the  selling end of the business while he  looked after the buying. Mr. Sharpe  has always looked after the needs of  his patrons, and has clone his share  towards building a better Enderby.  A. Reeves.���������������������������Few men could take  hold of a business and revolutionize  it in so short a time as it has taken  A. Reeves to revolutionize the drug  store and stationery business in Enderby. Two years ago, or less, Mr.  Reeves purchased the stock and trade  of the Enderby Drug & Stationery  Co. Being an experienced drug and  stationery'man, Mr. Reeves quickly  grasped the requirements of the situation, and in the period of one year  he has lifted the business to a position of importance to the town and  ^district.==By=con_n_ng-h_mse__-strictly-  to the requirements of his business,  he has brought the store up to a position where it is essential to the  life of the community as a commercial and home centre.  Thos. Woods���������������������������It requires very little  to start a butcher business, but a  great deal to make the business stick  and grow.- Tom Woods has done this  ���������������������������and more. He has won friends���������������������������a  host of them���������������������������and the esteem of his  business associates,, and.the good will  even of his -competitor. By inaugurating a weekly delivery between Enderby and Mara, Mr. Woods has been  instrumental in making it convenient  for a splendid class of trade to buy  in Enderby, and by so doing, has  benefitted himself, the buyer and the  town.  W. H. Hutchison.���������������������������Eighteen years  ago Mr. Hutchison opened the first  blacksmith shop in Enderby. He has  experienced all of the hardships and  a few of the pleasures of pioneering.  The hardest blow "came three years  ago, when a fire cleaned up everything he owned but his home. Undaunted, he started anew life's struggle by the anvil route. This time he  built of brick, and proceeded to recover his loss. Later he sold his  business property, and built larger  quarters on Belvedere street, where  he is now showing a fine line of carriages, cutters, sleighs, wagons, harness and general horseman's supplies.  All you have to do to be fitted out  from hoof to buggy-robe is to provide the horse-flesh. Mr. Hutchison  will do the rest.  " H. N. Hendrickson.���������������������������A write-up of  the business institutions of Enderby  would hardly be complete, without  mention of the silent man with a  light touch, from whom no facial  secrets rare hid, and for whom bald  pates have no need. To cap the  Yule-tide climax, after Santa Claus  has emptied your pockets of everything but that shiny galvenized button that bottoms . the pocket of all  men, you will find Henry beside his  big easy chair ready, with his suave  smile and clean-cutting razor to give  you a closer shave than a Christmas  bargain-counter lassie.  W. E. Banton.���������������������������Lawyers and litigants, as lawyers and (litigants, have  little to-do with Christmas stories,  but. in the.stories of the building of  a town told at Yule-tide, lawyers and  litigants have a place. While there  are lawyers we will have litigants,  and vice versa, and it is Enderby's  good fortune .to have a lawyer more  for peace , than war,' and one whose  JleiH_i. _p_.l _g"_-are _ever JJnJbhe work,  of building a bigger Enderby. Mr.  Banton has identified himself with  every good thing looking to Enderby's advance, and has ever been  found on the side of progress.  J. E. Evans���������������������������Some four years ago  Mr. Evans purchased the harness  business of Wm. Hancock, and has  since continued the business at the  old stand. This ig not a business  which offers many inducements for  Santa Clause to get busy, but if the  Merry Old Man with a merry, merry  smile wants a strap to mend a break  in his rein deer harness he will find  it at the sign of the tin cup and  water tap.  Jas. Mowat.���������������������������The best Christmas  gift is one that promises to grow in  value, and the real estate man is the  most likely person to tell you where  to find it. Mr. Mowat is particularly  earnest.in his efforts towards the upbuilding of Enderby, and has shown  every consideration for and encouragement to every movement looking  to our advance.  P. H. Barnes.���������������������������In.the early earlies,  some time about a quarter of a century ago, Mr. Barnes located on the  Barnes property, now thc Barnes addition to Enderby. He, has been actively engaged in-many undertakings  since then, all of which have added  their quota to the town's growth.  To-day Mr. Barnes is still engaged in  constructive ���������������������������work; and has some of  the largest buildings in Enderby to  his credit.  Columbia Flouring Mills Co.���������������������������When  we speak of the industries that have  been and are the back-bone of Enderby, the name of this company looms  big on the canvass.   Long, long ago,  ���������������������������before Enderby had a name,���������������������������these  flouring mills   were established here,  smaller than now but fully as important to the life and prosperity of the  town.   And    yet   we have heard the  anvil chorus pound this worthy institution with their little hammers and  in some   cases' when   it was feeding  them.   Small people,  eh, Felix?   But  the wheels stopped not their grinding  nor the mills   cease to grow.   Under  the able   management of Mr. Moffet,  the present manager, it has increased  its daily capacity to 300 barrels, and  next year this   is to   be increased to  500 barrels.    Perhaps   no institution  has done more to advertise the name  of-Enderby than the Columbia Flouring Mills.   Its product is shipped to  Liverpool," India,.. China and Japan,  and there is scarcely a home.in the  province of B. C. that has not seen a  sack of   Moffet's   Best.   Mr. Moffet's  ambition to see   Enderby advance is  crystalized in' the   handsome cement  home he has erected on his property  near the    mill.     When   completed it  will   be   a   veritable    palace.     This  week Mr. Moffet is engaged in a turkey hunt.   It takes'twenty-five to go  round.   You see, every employee gets  one.  is always the attraction in his hotels  ���������������������������he has run many, and makes good.  Christmas Day the King Edward will  serve a dinner equal to a French  cafe, with souvenir bills of fare for  every guest. If you propose a diner  party, engage your seats ahead of  time.   There may be a crowd.  Enderby Hotel.���������������������������Before Enderby  was they had .the. Enderby Hotel. It  was some years ago, 'tis true, and it  was different to what it is to-day,but  Webb Wright was in it and around it  ���������������������������indeed, for a time he was cook,  chamber maid, clerk and manager���������������������������  and his dignity did not suffer in the  mix-up nor his heart grow smaller.  Take the history of the Enderby hotel out of the life of" Enderby, and  you rob it of. many of its most'charitable deeds. And what the Enderby  has been in the past it is now and  will continue to be so long as Webb  Wright's name is   associated with it  J. S. Johnstone.���������������������������Mr. Johnstone is  a firm believer in a beautified Enderby. He is demonstrating the superiority of cement as a building material, and the work he has thus far  done amply proves his contention.  Bank of Montreal.���������������������������It has been said  that all toe-paths lead to the -Bank  of Montreal, ih Enderby, and this is  doubly true. Back of every business  man and commercial institution is  the shadow of the bank through whicli  the business man or commercial institution does business. In Enderby it  is the good old bank���������������������������the Bank of  Montreal���������������������������that keeps the machinery  in motion aud Manager Taylor is the  man at the helm. " To Mr. Taylor's  unselfish efforts on behalf of Enderby  and its greater' possibilities much is  due. No labor looking to the promotion of the city's interests has  been or is too arduous for him to  undertake, and .especially in connection with the work of the Board of  Trade has his labor been most helpful to the city.  Postmaster Harvey is the biggest  Santa Claus of the bunch. He can  scarcely tell you whether he is driving reindeer, or going down a chimney  these days of big mails, but when the  rush is over he is always on the. spot  with something for Enderby..  A. R. Rogers Lumber Co.���������������������������This is  the BIG employer of labor with headquarters at Enderby, and is the head  of the back-bone of our resources.  In its many camps, its. yards and  mills the company employs upwards  of 200 men, and the output from its  saws covers thc Northwest. The past  season has been unusually successful  under the able management of Mr.  Stevens, and the season of 1910 gives  -promisc-of-still=greater-thingSf=-It-isTeffotts=- o������������������__our=_.p_csen_t  Mr. Stevens intention to run a night  and day shift next year throughout  the sawing season, which means a  double force of men employed, and a,n  increased payroll.  Jas. McMahoii!���������������������������Blacksmithing and  repairing have no sound of Yule-tide  melodies about them, but they are  essential to the up-building of Enderby, and because they are, we want to  call attention to what has been accomplished by this energetic worker  in red hot iron*. He has built up a  repairing and wagon-making business  that is recognized by all within  travelling radius of Enderby.  A. L. Matthews.���������������������������If you cannot get  it-at one place perhaps you may at  the other_ Mr. Matthews has recently opened his private livery stables,  but in the short time that he has  been serving the public he has given  every satisfaction.  E. J. Mack.���������������������������A month ago it would  have read Evans & Mack, but Mr.  Mack has made the purchase and now  is in full command of the handsome  turn-outs sent from the Cliff-street  livery stables. Speak earlv for that  Christmas cutter built for two.  Thos. Pound���������������������������Mr. Pound is ever  ready to interest himself in your behalf if you are looking for land in  the Enderby.district.  Enderby Brick & Tile Co.���������������������������The best  of anything adds to the prestige of  the place from which it comes. It is  Enderby's good fortune to produce  thc best in flour, brick and lumber,  and we are "beginning to produce the  best in fruit���������������������������apples���������������������������also. The product of the Enderby Brick & ' -.le Co.,  has more than a local name, and orders come from the coast cities for  finishing bricks. Mr. Gibbs, manager  of tlie local yards, is planning to install a brick-making machine that  will more than double the output.  F. T. Turner���������������������������Mr. Turner has been  much responsible for the beautifying  of Enderby in the past year. His  work with the paint brush oh many  of our homes has added inestimably  to the good appearance of the town.  . In this brief mention of the men  and institutions' who have in -the  past and are to-day contributing to  Enderby's advance, we shall not miss  the names of G. R. Lawes and A. L.  Fortune. The latter is the pioneer of  pioneers���������������������������the original locator of the  Fortune meadows, that splendid property south of town", where, forty  years ago, he pitched his tent and  stayed���������������������������and the former, the original  manager of the Enderby flouring mill.  Indeed, it was Mr. Lawes who gave  its name to Enderby, and it has been  very much due to his untiring efforts  in fruit culture that the name of-Enderby has now gone -forth as the  home of the finest apples. Nor shall  we forget the honor brought to Enderby in days past by Wm. Elson for  the high quality of the product from  his prize orchard adjoining the city.  Nor can we   overlook   the untiring  JMayo _=_and_  Clerk Roso-  F. Pyman.���������������������������Mr. Pyman has seen  most of the ups, and some of the  downs in his six years of business  life in Enderby. The financial flurry  of a few years ago, caught him with  more jewelry on his hands than he  could find buyers for, and he took  the only equitable course left open  to him. He assigned, and in the settlement paid dollar for dollar to the  extreme limit of his indebtedness.  Then he got a clear sheet and began  all over again. He is to-day well established���������������������������not at the old stand, but  at a better one���������������������������and is conducting a  general jewelry and optical business,  with repairing to pay expenses. Mr.  Pyman is buying slow but building  strong, and well. He is showing a  selection of handsome jewelry novel-  tics, so suitable for Christmas gifts.  King Edward Hotel.���������������������������Paddy Murphy is a hotel man from the ground  up, and as a result of his good management we have in this hotel one  that has given Enderby a good name  with travellers far and near. Mr.  Murphy never cuts his table to reduce  running expenses.     His dining room  Councilmen, and City  man. These gentlemen are deserving  of the best cheer that Enderby can  give this happy Yule-tide for their  unceasing labors in behalf of the city  and the public weal.  And H. W. Keith M. D., who keeps  all Enderbyites in good health, that he  mav have time to beautify his home  and the city.  And the genial Mr. Dobson, who has  the happy iaculty of making bad debts  good ones, and keeping the businessman  happy.

SUB  SAW AN APPARITION.  Seen I>y a Visitor at an Old English  Coun.ry Plan. Which Hag a  (j'Jum.. ik.m.  Tho latest ghost story has boon  told to Lhe London Daily ALail by  Sir George Sit well, Bart. Ifc tells  of two ghosts seen at Jlonishaw,  Ins country place near Chesterfield.  Rcuishaw is an old house, dating  from 1625, and more than one  ghostly legend is associated witn  it. Sir George Sitwcll's story follows-:  "Last Saturday two ghosts wore  ���������������������������eon at Rcnishaw. Lady Ida had  been to Scarborough to attend the  lifeboat ball, at which sho sat up  until 4 o'clock in the morning, and  had returned home lh.at'"'afternoon.  After dinner the party of six ��������������������������� I  (Was absent for a few hours���������������������������sat in  a drawing room upstairs, Lady Ida  on a sofa facing the open door.  "Looking up after speaking to a  ..friend on her loft, she saw in the  passage outside the figure of a woman, apparently a servant, with  gray hair and white cap, the upper part of the dress blue, the skirt  dark. The arms were at full length  nnd the hands clasped. This figure  moved with a very slow, furtive,  gliding motion, as if wishing bo escape notice, straight toward the  head of the old staircase, whieh I  removed twenty years ago.  '''Unwilling to think that there  could be aaything supernatural in  the appearance Lady Ida called  out,  'WHO'S THAT?   WHO'S THAT.'  then tho name of the housekeeper,  I hen to those nearest the door,  'Run out and see who it is ; run out  A. once!'  "Two rushed out, but no one was.  there.   The others joined them and  I .arched the hall and passages upstairs.   As they were coming down  one of tho party, Miss It., who was  b little away from    the rest, ox-  claimed :  " 'I do believe .that's the ghost!'  "There in the full   light of the  archway below, within twenty feet  of her, just where the door of the  old ghost room used to stand until  1 removed it to.> put tho present  staircase in its place, she saw the  figures were actually   seen as do-  dress, lost in painful thought and  oblivious of everything about her.  The dress was fuller than the moa-  orn fashion, and the figure, though  opaque, east no shadow.   It moved  with a curious gliding motion into  the darkness and incited away afc or  Vithin  a yard of  tho spot where  a doorway, now walled up, led from  the staircase to the hall.  "Thero is no   doubt that these  figures wcr actually    seen as described.   They were not ghosts but  phantasms���������������������������reversed     nnprcssions  of somothing seen in the past and  now  projected   from  au overtired  und excited brain.  "In both cases tlie vurious glid-  =4_ g^mo v e uie .tr.h-e~-.a-). :-��������������������������� e������������������e .-o f-=s 1; a-  dow,  the absolute stillness of the  figures, which moved neither hand  por   head,   and   hardly  seemed   t-o  breathe, point to that conclusion.  Such an experience goes far lowaro  solving  ghost room mentioned by Sir  Georgo in his letter.  "I recall one in particular, that  when a stranger slept for the first  time- at the lia.ll the ghost of a lady  was supposed to appear. One visitor, whoso name I do not now recollect, told mc of a youi.g luly who  occupied  THE GHOST .ROOM  having been found in a state of abject terror and refused to give any  account of what she had seen.  "Some weeks before the general  election of 1S92 my election agent  came to stay with m,o till the election was over. On tho nigho of nis  arrival we worked till about 1 a.m.,  lighted our candles and went up tho  staircase whicn Sir George describes as having been pub in twenty years ago, close to the old ghost  room. Near the top of the stairs  this gentleman, an'astute and clever Sheffield solicitor, stopped  short, tapped mo on thc shoulder  and whispered :  " 'There's somebody following us  upstairs.' "  "I went down, examined the  stairs, entrance hall und the rooms,  without finding anything. I ascond-  'ed the stairs again, and step for  step as I ascended I distinctly  heard footsteps following mc up to  ���������������������������the top of the staircase.  "I returned again to the entrance hall, but I saw . o figures as  described by Sir George Sitwoil.  'There were no ghosts or phan-  'tasms, no reversed impressions of  something seen- in tho past, but distinct footsteps were heard by two  /overtired but not excited men."   *__   KING EDWARD'S OltDEltS  OrigJin, Romance and Etiquette of  tbe Decorations.  When King Edward goes abroad  amongst his subjects on occasion,  of ceremony., the   loast   obs .rvair.  eye  will,  says the    Strand Maqa  zinc, not some details of the ims'g  nia he wears.    Tvervone is aware  PLANT INTELLIGENCE.  Defcnsivc Means Employed Against  Insects.  Writing of the Italian catch, y in  his essay, "Thc Intelligence of the  Flowers," Maurice Maeterlinck,  the Belgian poet and philosopher,  shows how this simple little white  flower goes with seemingly intelli-  that thc emblems   of  an order of #ont thought about thc business of  WIT EKE IS SAFEST SPOT?  Cabi .. of Ocean Liner or Ilaih...y  Carriage Very Safe Place.  Where is tho safest spot'.    Many  people insure against accidents on  a railway journey, oblivious of the  fact that the risks incurred during  travelling are  quite    insignificant,  when compared with those to which  one  is exposed  after  terminating  the journey.    Probably tho safest  place on land or sea, Mr. Roland  Eelfort points out iu the, World's  Work, ,is the -deck or   cabin of a_  first-class   ocean   liner.     A   first-  class railway carriage is "also   an  exceptionally safe place.   Thus is so  clearly recognized that accident insurance companies ,can    afford  to  double tho compensation when accidents occur on'-railways or tram  cars.      A man may    undertake a  journey round  the    world  with  a  comparatively  light  heart        But  extreme care  and    vigilance    are  needed should ho venture to hang  his picture or even walk down his  own stairs.  Statistics show, Mr- Belfort gr<o?  on to remark, that 50 per cent, o-  accidents happen while the victi.������������������.E  arc at homo or in thc street,    f . .  exports' explanation of this is thai  a man, when entering upon a- ha*,  a'rdous     undertaking,      exercise.1--  special care, thus escaping injury,  hut while at homo or taking oxe-  oise vigilance is relaxed, fa.nili.v-  ily with common dangers breeding  contempt.    Indeed, the blind f ���������������������������>���������������������������������������������<���������������������������  Cf of nature aro not more danger  ous to a man than those cver-pre  .(M_t~i7eri"ls"~^  knighthood are not restricted to  ono portion of the royal peisi.n ;  they may be worn on the righc or  left shoulder, across the bosom, on  the left breast, around thc no.:!-:,  or suspended at the hip. It is probable that thc broad blue ri���������������������������.on  or the Garter is familiar to all. but  that it is equally possible to wear  thc badge o'f tho Garter round the  neck, on the left shoulder, on _l.c  breast, or encircling the left leg  may not bo generally known.  It has been said that the desire  to possess honorary distinctions  has shown itself in various shapes'  from very remote times, and to be  able to-wear them on the person  as evidence of some particular qualification in tlie individual has been  an object of human ambition almost from time immemorial. The  sovereign naturally leads the way;  he is the first man in the state; he  is himself the fountain of honor.  But with the accumulation of" honorable decorations at all the courts  ol Europe, it grew impossible for  one individual tp wear all the  chains, ribbons, medals and crosses of which King Edward is the recipient. Consequently, a selection  only can be worn, and this selection is governed by his majesty's  predilections and the nature of the  occasion. Thus, afc a purely Brit-  is!" function, the display of the insignia of British orders and of  British decorations is naturally thc  rule-  But first of all let us see what  the insignia of an order generally  consist of.

The age of a fish can be dctcrmin  cd with accuracy by inspection of  tho otoliths'- or    bony concretions  which aro found in tho auditory apparatus.   These otoliths increase in  size during the  entire  life  of the  fish, each year adding two layer<  a light colored layer formed in sum  mcr and a dark layer formed in autumn  and  winter.    Tho alternate  layers are sharply contrasted   and  very distinct,  so that there is no  difficulty in counting them.      The  number of pairs of layers is equal  to  the  number  of years  the    fish  has lived.   By this method Wallace  has  made an interesting study of  tho distribution    of    fishes of the  plaice species over various sea bob  terns, according to    ago.     In this  way thc rapidity of growth of fishes and the effect of fisheries on the  population of tho sea can be deter  mined  ita own preservation. Apparently  very timorous, very susceptible, to  avoid tho visits of importunate and  indelicate insects thc Silene ItaJica  furnishes its stalks with glandular  hairs, when co oozes a viscid fluid  in which thc parasites arc caught  witji such success that-thc peasants  of the south use tho plant as .a lly-  catchcr in  their  houses.  Certain kinds ol' catchllics, moreover, have ingeniously simplified  the system. Dreading tho ants in  particular, they'discovcred that it  was enough, in order to prevent  them from passing, to place a wide  viscid ring under the node of each  stalk. This is exactly what our  gardeners do when they draw a circle of .tar or other sticky substance  round thc trunks of the apple-trees  to stop the ascent of the caterpillars.  In a popular work, "Les Plantes  Originates," Mons. Henri Coupin  examines some of thc defensive  means employed by plants. Some  of these weapons are quaint and  startling.  Monsieur Lothelicr, a student at  the Sor bonne, has made a'number  of interesting experiments with  thorns, resulting in the conclusion  that shade and damp tend to suppress the prickly parts of the  plants.       ' '"  On the other hand, whenever the  placo in which.it grows is dry and  burned by the sun, the plant bristle?, and multiplies its spikes, as if  it felt Jbhat, being almost the sole  .survivor among the rocks or in the  hot sand, it is called upon to make  a mighty effort to redouble ib_ defenses against an enemy that no  longer has a choice of victims to  ptey upon. It is a remarkable fact,  moreover, that, when cultivated by  man. most of the thorny plants  gradually lay aside their weapons,  leaving thc care of their safety lo  the supernatural protector who has  adopted them in his fenced  grounds.  Among tbe plats that have ceased  to defend themselves, the most  striking case is that of the lettuce!  "In its wild state," says Monsieur Coupon, "if wc break a stalk  or a leaf, we see a white juice exude from it, the latex, a substance  formed of different matters which  vigorously defend the plant against  the assaults of the slugs. On the  other hand, in the cultivated spec-  es derived from the former, the latex is almost miosing, for which  reason the plant, to tho despair of  tho gardeners, is no longer able to  resist, and allows tho slugs to eat  it:"  It is nevertheless right, comments  Maeterlinck, to add that latex is  rarely lacking except in the young  plants, whereas it becomes quite  abundant when the lottuco begins  to "cabbage," and when it runs  to seed. Now ifc is especially at the  commencement of its life, at the  Hi u d d i n g^o hi ts-fi r sfc=tc nd e r=l ca ve sr  that the plant needs to defend itself. One is inclined to think that  thc cultivated lettuce loses its  head a little, so te speak, and tin.  ifc no longer knows exactly where  it stands.  Certain plants, among others the  Boraginaceac, supply the place of  thorns    with    very  hard, bristles.  EYES' QUEER MALADIES  PEOPLE   WHO     SLEEP   WITH  THEIR EYES OPEN.  i St. Louis Man  Who lias    Nol  Closed His Eyes for Twenty  Tears.  To "sleep with one eye open," to  be always "wide awake," are bits  cf advice which it is very diflicult  to follow literally. Yet there aro  several individuals who can truthfully claim the distinction of sleeping with both eyes open. Ono of  the most interesting of these cases  ii that of Joseph Anderson, of St.  Louis, who for twenty years haa  never closed his eyes, sleeping or  waking, and "who will probably  never close them again in this lifo,  says London Tit-Bits.  Anderson is now in the City Hospital, St. Louis, under thc care of  physicians who fear to make any  experiments to restore the natural  movement of the eyelids, lest by so  doing they destroy also the sight  r.f the eyes. If Anderson agrees to  take the risk, then ah attempt will  be made to give him back the ability to close his eyes���������������������������a luxury  which the unfortunate man is very  anxious to enjoy. The story of Anderson's mysterious malady is interesting, and may prove something of  a warning to other men who ar<������������������  following his occupation.  A WIDE-EYED AMERICAN.  This, "wide-eyed" American ia  sixty years of age, and twenty years  ago was-a .quarry workman.. The  limo dust that was perpetually getting into his eyes created an inflammation, which, however, did  not bother Anderson very much. <A  few weeks later, however, he began  t-o notice that it was getting more  and more difficult for him to close  his eyes, and one nighfc when he lay  down to sleep he found it impossible to lower tho eyelids- He made  desperate efforts.to de so, but  failed, and throughout the night  he- lay there staring at the ceiling.  When he rose in the morning he  felt in no way weary, and came to  the conclusion that he must have  slept with his eyes open.  During the days, that followed  Anderson tried to exercise his eyelids, but couldn't as much as wink  at a comrade,when the latter asked  him tp take a "smile." "It caused  me so-me trouble at first," Anderson said to tho surgeons, "as I.  couldn't go. to sleep, but just lay  there staring at the ceiling. But -  gradually I bcame used to it and  slept as well as any man���������������������������with my  eyes open."    ' .,  For . eighteen     years   Anderson  thought little of .his ability to go  t.   sleep  with  his eyes  open,   but  then came headaches and he began  to suffer a good deal.   He believed  that he had    rheumatism   of   the  eyes, and when he couldn't stand  the pain any longer he went to the  hospital, where the surgeons hailed '  him as one of thc "queer" cases   ���������������������������  vhich delight the medical profession.   They laughed at his idea of  rheumatism, but Anderson persists  _ IRf F. ilri"iTT igh fcpa" nd=d ee 1 are s=th a t^=  ii   rheumatism can  be cured  that  Others,..such.as the.nettle, add poi-.  son. Colliers, thc geranium, the  mint, tho rue, stoop themselves in  powerful odors to keep off thc animals.  But thc strangest are those which  defe ml themselves mechanically.  Monsieur Maeterlinck mentions  only the horsetail, which surrounds  itself with a vertiable armour of  microscopic silicae. Moreover, almost all the Gramineac, in order  to discourage the gathering of slugs  and snails, add lime to their tissues.  SUICIDE WITH HATPIN.  A rather unusual suicide was  that of John Howason at B. istol.  England, recently. The man wa������������������  in the hospital suffering from pneumonia, and wa.s at time delirious.  Ar the nurse was leaning over his  bed, he suddenly sprang up, and  seizing a hatpin from her cap, stabbed himself to tho heart. The  nurse extracted tho pin, but thc  man died shortly after. The doctors who performed the autopsy  found a tiny puncture in the heart.  WHERE EDUCATION FAILS.  Au old "darky" iu Alabama  called across the fence to his neighbor's son, who is a student at the  Atlanta University.  "Look hyarj boy," he said; "you  iroos to school, don-'t yer1."  "Yes, sir," replied tho boy.  "Laming 'rithmetic an' figgcr-  ing on a slate, eh'I"  "Yes,  sir."  "Well, it dou' luk' two whole  days ter make an hour, do it?"  "Why, no," answered the boy.  "Wal," said the old . man, "you  was going ter bring that hatchet  hack in an hour, wasn't yer1? An'  hit's two whole days sence you bor-  red hit. What's the use of yo' education of you go ter school a whole  year, an' den can't tell how long  hit takes ter fetch back dat hatchet ."  one day ho will be able to close his  ;>ycs again. Attempts at a cure will  ���������������������������.robably be made, and Anderson's  ;ase is .being watched with considerable interest* by medical men in  a!! sections of thc country.  RESULT OF RHEUMATISM.  Rheumatism of_bhc_cycs.is.not.so.  unusual as readers may possibly  think. An interesting case may bo  recalled.. Whon Wilkie Collins, the  famous novelist, was at tho height  of his famo he became afflicted with  what was then diagnosed as "rheumatism of the eyes." The author  suffered the most excruciating pain  for eighb months, during which  time he lay on his face, shielding  his eyes with his arm and dictating  tho greatest of all his novels, "Tho  Moonstone.''1 Tho malady left him  ���������������������������is mysteriously as it had come, and  never again was tho author troubled with his oyes, though the visitation left him very near-sighted.  The case of a young child, named  Dorothy Cross, greatly interested  the surgeons of Newark Hospital a  few years ago- This child was born  with the eyelids attached to the.  eyebrows, so that it was impossible,  for her to close them. The doctors  feared to operate lest the sight  should bo damaged, but finally cut  loose the eyelids, and by means of  grafting wero enabled to hide the  scars. For.several months the child  had to be instructed in the way of  closing and opening her eyes, until the function became a natural  one and she could "blink" as often  a. she had a mind to. According  to tho doctors the case was not an  isolated one.  : ���������������������������____*_ __  Don't abuse the rich;  we ^an't  all be paim*'-.  *1  j  if  <_  4  1  3? . ���������������������������fc*.'..

From Artificial Fteh Ponds  in England-  Very interesting experiments in  the intensive cultivation of fish are  being attempted by a well-known  pioneer in cultivation, says the  London Daily World. A series of  ponds are dug -..ji. . stocked witn  coarse fish, which have a very-  steady sale in thc market, and the  later results go to show that an  acre of water may yield a profifcof  over ������������������20, which compares well with  land, especially the clay land in  which the ponds arc most cheaply  made.  The results arc corroborated by  along established experiment in  thc Black Country. In the grounds  ol a hospital for cripples a hundred years ago-a pond was dug out  hi'licu of a well and fed by pipes  from the River Stour. This pond  abounds with roach, perch, beam  and eels, which pro-vide the home  with one of the staple articles of  food.  The method of catching the fish  is interesting. The paraphernalia  are a carriage lamp, an ordinary-  garden rake, and a bucket or two.  Soon after sunset the lamp is lit  and turned to the water, and tho  fish so crowd into the lit space that  they can be raked to shore several  at a time. Even the eels can. be  caught in this way if the lamp is  removed a little further from the  edge and tho fisherman is handy  -with his rake.  Ifc is a curious thing how very  easily pond fish are cultivated,  though once their cultivation was  common ; and there is no doubt  that ponds might- make a useful  addition to the resources of many  establishments. There is no reason  why every other village should "not  have-its fish ponds, as in the days  of periodic fasts, when fish was an  almost necessary article of food.

C. Edwards, a wei!-known Friendly Society  leader, of Peter Street, Toronto.   He cut one of his.  fingers with a piece of glass, and instead of applying  Zam-Buk to prevent blood poison and to heal it, he neglected  the cut, and blood poison followed.   Ke says:���������������������������"The blood-  poison from the finger spread up my ha . d and arm and caused  me terrible agony.   After two months' treatment the doctor said  there was no cure, and amputation would have to take place if I  intended to save my arm.   I left that doctor end consulted another.  After a few weeks' treatment, he also told me that operation would  be necessary.   He said the bone had become diseased and the finger  would have to be opened so that tbe bone could be scraped.  I went tway to consider when  I v/ould have the operation performed and n\et a friend who advised me to try Zam-Buk.  " That night I bathed the wound end put on some Zam-Buk.' I got* a little sleep for the  first time for many nights. In lha morning tha wound began, to bleed instead of the foul dia-  chargins as In th9 pact. Th"i3 was a healthy sign so I went on with the Zam-Buk. Well, to  cut a Ions story short, in a few dayi I put away the sling, end in a few weeks the finger v/a$  healed completely.
