II.    M.     W   A  I.   K   1.   1_  ONE   MAN'S POINT OF VIEW  WHEN Los Angeles, Cal., a city  of 300,000, voted.to issue bonds  in the'sum of $23,000,000 for  the purpose of bringing a water supply to that city for future generations to use,. it was recognized by  business men and economists as a  brilliant business proposition. When  Canada, with its population of eight  millions, and resources greater than  any nation in the world, proposes to  raise $16,000,000 for the purpose of  building a navy, it is looked upon by  most men as a silly show of baby  loyalty. Sixteen millions will build  and equip for service about three  gun boats, which, in case of a naval  conflict with the navy against which  we are supposed to be preparing to  fight, would last about sixteen seconds. A hundred millions spent in  war ships, if it were possible to build  them or have them built within the  next two or three years, might be  worth talking about. But sixteen  millions would give us only a tin-pot  navy for any Flying Dutchman to  pick up and carry home under his arm.  It will require 20 years for Canada  to build anything worthy the name  of a navy, and the cost would have  to be a hundred and sixty millions  instead of sixteen. And it wouldn't  then be worth a duce in the hole as a  fighting arm against those nations  which have had a century the start  of us. And, besides, twenty years  from now navies   will be as obsolete  as the old flint-lock musket as a war  machine.    The war now coming, and  which will be upon us before 1920, is  necessary to destroy  the navies now  existing, and after that there  won't  be any more war.     Men and nations  ure becoming-sane.- Thoy-know-tliat  to carry '"a   chip    on    your shoulder  means a   fight;   a   piece of mistletoe  on the coat-tail a kick.     We Britons  now living will see the day when we  shall be ashamed of our present madness, and our children shall laugh atom- folly in staking all we have and  all we are upon our machines of destruction.   To live by the sword is to  die by it.   It must come.   It is coming.     And   we   shall    then   learn in  meekness   the    power   of love in the  molding of character and the making  of nations.   Canada does not need a  navy.   It were better to build flying  machines    for   fighting    craft,    if we  must have them, for that is the machine that   is    going    to   finish our  Dreadnaughts.     But why build fighting machines at all?   Can't we be a  people of peace?   Put the sixteen millions, and add another fifty to it, into home defenses;    the protecting of  our harbors, and making invasion by  an enemy impossible.   Our little tin-  pot navy would be no protection at  home, and certainly   could not be of  any assistance to the Mother Land.  If we are - prepared   to   say   to the  world that wc arc not a fighting people, but that we are prepared to sacrifice every life in defense of Canada  and our homes,   we   shall inspire infinitely more   respect abroad, nnd n  truer loyalty   at   home, than all the  warships    would    inspire    that     wc  might build in a hundred years.   Cut  it out, Sir Wilfrid, cut it out.  AND here's the way they do it  at Yakima: "When our train  stopped at North . Yakima,"  writes Elbert Hubbard, "there was a  boy with a bushel-basket of apples  for each ear. No, Rella; not to sell,  .to give-away���������������������������one big applc-to every  passenger���������������������������man, woman and child !  There was a special day coach full of  Japanese laborers, and these were  not slighted, cither. It,was only an  advertisement���������������������������just a reminder that  we were in the apple country���������������������������but it  set everybody's jaws to working, and  tongues, too, for we talked like magpies. We talked of the beautiful,Big,  Red Apples, and we talked of the  Big, Generous Hearts cf Lhc folks  who had the courage thus to advertise their products. At Bozeman,  Mont., thc city sends a box of flowers to every train, and these pansics,  pinks or roses are distributed thro'  leach car, every woman and child being remembered. Just think of this a  moment���������������������������a Common Council voting  an appropriation for home-grown  flowers to give awuy to passengers  passing through. And yet there are  people who persist in yammering that  the world is growing worse instead  of better."  000  The Union Jack flying over thc Enderby school has not been taken  down since last 24th of May. Night  and day, rain or shine, Sundays,  holidays, school days, it has never  ceased flapping. And it is now a  tattered, bedraggled old rng; sick,  sad, shorn of its beauty, and not an  ob.cct to inspire pride, loyalty or  anything but pity. Can the Government   .fiord another?  J. Forsyth Smith, secretary of the  Vernon Board of Trade, submitted a  valuable report to the Board at its -  last   meeting,   showing   the splendid "  growth of the Valley in general and  Vernon in particular.     This growth,  it was    pointed   out,    was indicated -  most strikingly by the Voters'" List, -  which shows the following increase:  Nov.    1904   .'.1,562  May,   1905'  '.' 1,796  __T~_ l_Jan,,_1906_ ...:.... 1,822  "Nov.,  1906    2,371  Nov.,  1907   2,868  1908   3,468  1909 ' 3,703  1909   , 4,024  The last increase is in spite of the  fact that over 200 names were struck  off by the Court of Revision.

Thc  head usher on entering the dining-  room with thc first, dish repeats a  verse appropriate to thc occasion,  the authorship of which is supposed  to be hi.s own.  THE DINNER IS ELABORATE,  served in six, seven, or eight courses, with toasts between courses, always in rhyme. It is not unusual  for two and three days dancing to  follow.  At whatever hour married, thc  Polish bride must not take off her  veil until midnight. At that time  the two bridesmaids remove the  veil and replace it with a silk cap  decorated with ribbons.  It is seldom that the house of  an average Polish family is large  enough to accommodate thc guests,  so, after thc ceremony at the church  thc entire party adjourns to a big  public hall.  Here each man dances once  around thc room with the bride,  ending at a table, where there is  a plate or basket. At thc conclusion it is expected of thc man thus  honored to drop money into the  basket.  In some parts of Russia announcing the engagements is as import- |  in   baking  pan.

AT TEE CHURCH,  on thc day of the wedding, the  guests walk round thc altar, and  on the return to the bride's home,  feast on meats and pastry. There  is much specch-makin g at a table,  and about 11 o'clock thc dancing  begins. A collection is taken for  thc bride, who honors thc present-  givers by dancing with them. At  midnight a committee of women do  up thc bride's hair in the fashion  considered proper for married women.

Those who suffer    from habitual  cold feet should take an alternate  missing optic replaced by a glavv.  one. Artificial eyes for dogs and  other animals are as common as  wooden legs, and, though they have-  to be made to order, there fire .several opticians in London who will  procure and fit them at short notice. An eye for a dog costs from  ���������������������������.Ii to $J5, says London Tit-Bits.  A dog doctor on the Continent  recently stated that no fewer than  two hundred dogs were fitted by  him with glass eyes last year.  Several lions and tigers have been  supplied with glass eyes during recent years, and it win be remembered that when Messrs. ... istock's menagerie  was  at  the    Earl's  Court  Exhibition   last  year  a  full-grow a  lion that lost an eye during a fight  was supplied "with an artificial optic.  HORSES WITH GLASS EYES. -  Many valuable horses have been -  supplied with glass eyes., and only  recently an    American    race-horse  had one  "made to measure."    At-  first it did not appreciate the false  eye,  and tried  to knock it out by  rubbing its head against the wall ���������������������������  of its stall.    It now rests contented,   however,    and is   perhaps tho  only thoroughbred adorned with a  glass eye.  Of all animals horses seem most  prone to tooth troubles, and the  horse dentist ia now quite common  in Great Britain ancl America, .'i ���������������������������  dentist in New York makes an income of over fi!0,000 a year by fitting horses, dogs, and" cats with  false teeth.  A little wh.ile ago a society lady  ir London had her valuable pug-  dog, which had gained many prizes,  at -shows,' fitted w.ith a full set of  artificial teeth at a cost of $125.  One of the elephants at the Paris  Zoo had an-aching molar, which  wras driving it fco despair and giving it a temper that was growing  dangerous. The medical officer at  ihe Zoo decided to remove, thc of  hot and cold foot bath morning and   fcnding  tooth,   but,   finding  this  ;  evening. Soak the feet in hot. wa  ter at a temperature of about ]0S  ciegres or 110 degrees for two or  three minutes, then dip them into  cold water for half a minute, then  back into the hot water for another  two or thrc minutes, and continue  alternating live or six' times, finally drying the- feet from the cold  water. This will stimulate tiie circulation and produce a glow of  warmth in the feet that will be  maintained for hours afterward.  .EHMAN KMIGKAT TON WANING  C!._i.ir{<M' as Woiras Number Has  Changed.

As an investment there is no offering to-day before thc public  which presents greater possibilities  than Taxicab Stock.

JANUARY 27. 1910  A SPLENDID SHOWING  WRITE HOME TO MOTHER  The financial statement of the City  of Enderby, just issued by City Clerk  Rosoman, is a most complete and  carefully compiled document, and  worthy of close study by every ratepayer or prospective rate-payer. We  seldom will see better, if as good,  reports issued by any city, large or  small.  The statement shows a very prosperous condition of municipal affairs'^^^P8. **e  Little souls who pretend to pilot  weary hearts and wayward along the  narrow path that leads to glory, are  sure to find in men too big for them  to understand many awful things for  which they damn . Colonel R. T.  Lowery is one of the men whom little men have consigned to regions  notoriously sulphuric and bottomless  as their logic. But there has lived  a person big enough to know, and  sane enough to love Bob Lowery,  and she was a woman���������������������������his mother.  Such love was reciprocal, and Bob  Lowery was big enough to return' it.  In the last issue of his Ledge he tells  how he did it:  "In the far, wild and beautiful  West there lives many a boy who forgets to wrote to his mother. Away  back in the cent belt many a gray-  haired mother silently sits as the  shadows of evening grow darker,  wondering where her boy is to-night,  is   sipping high-balls in  CITY    OF    ENDERBY,  GENERAL   ACCOUNT  Balance on hand,  Jan.

Thc affable gentleman who hands  you out notes or gold in exchange  for your cheque is the mark of  sharks and owindlcrs of all descriptions. The possibilities offered by a  successful fraud upon him are great  and thc risks on thc whole are less  than have fco be faced in many other  fields of crime, says Pearson's  .Weekly.  Dodges innumeiable    have been  worked for his especial bond it, but  the very dangers 01 his calling make  him    wary,  and    he is    not easily  "had."    That  favorite  device    of  petty  thieves,   for example,  called  "ringing the    changes,"   which  so  often deceives the shopman or the  publican, seldom succeeds with him.  Be  has a    disconcerting habit    of  completing each payment as originally asked for, blandly ignoring any  changes in detail    until    the end.  Thus  he    makes each    transaction  complete in itself, and it is not easy"  to confuse him.  Bad money is seldom presented  .0 a bank, unless undesignedly, by  those who have been themselves deceived. It is extraordinary how  quickly a cashier can detect one bad  Coin among a number of good ones.  Tho slightest difference in appearance, size, or even weight is often  sufficient to catch his attention. It  U nofc because hc has had so much  experience of bad coins, but because he is so accustomed to good  pnes, that ho is quick in noticing  lhe difference Gold counterfeits  .re usually wrong in thc weight,  while silver ones have often a suspiciously greasy appearance and  ring badly.  SWINDLE WORKED BY A LAD^  Nevertheless, a simple swindle of  ft petty nature was successfully  worked for some time at a certain  bank where a number of tellers  Vera employed. All of them in  .urn at intorvals found themselves  f'planted" with' a bright new far-  tiling for a half-sovereign. Eventually the mystery was cleared up.  Tho fraud had been worked by thc  handsome lady-cashier of a big business firm. How far its success  was due to the dazzling glances  from her pretty eyes, and how far  to the fact that she usually handed  over the money at the busiest time  of thc day, and when possible in a  bad light, ifc is hard to say.  Cashiers have sometimes to face  thc risk of robbery by fellow-officials, though these cases arc extremely rave. A few years ago, however, a bank clerk left suddenly for  America, under circumstances which  his friends endeavored to hush up  as much as possible.   Hc had been  It was not there, and, as there was  not the slightest doubt of his honesty, the cashier paid him out another ������������������100 bag of gold. At night  hc was ������������������100 short, and is now paying  it  up   by   instalments.     Some  tho local Companies.  There is no question but fcnat at  the present time the majority of the  insurers who effect their insurance  with registered Companies, arc protected  against excessive  rates    by  smart individual in the crowd had  the certain knowledge that the own-  annexed thc amount while Lhc old  soldier was busy counting the earlier portion of his payment.  FORGED C1T.J_QI.ES.  Forgery is the terror of the bank  cashier, for it is diflicult to detect  and may relieve him of a large sum  at ono blow. It must be remembered that every uncrossed cheque  presented afc thc bank on which it  cv will have recourse to oufcside insurance if necessity arises. Any alteration in the existing insurance  law, which would restrict thc obtaining of fire insurance outside of  Canada, would not only immediately re-act on.the dairying and farming interests by reason of tho increased cost of insurance to thc  large produce firms who at thc prc-  panios operating outside  of  Can  ada; and  Further, Resolved that a copy of  this resolution be sent to the Minister of Agriculture, asking for and  claiming his special interest in tne  Bill, on behalf of the dairying and  produce industries of Canada,  which wo realize will be so vitally  and adversely affected if the pro-,  posed legislation be enacted.

Another case was where a cashier  continually found himself short lifter balancing the day's transactions. Usually thc deficiency was  for small sums. It puzzled hiru for  a long time; but eventually the  mystery was solved by an accident.  A clerk in the office was in the habit of handing him a book to initial each day.    Thc book was laid  fche   conditions,    offered   by   local  Companies.  Tlie Bill    was    referred    to the  ance  on  any  or  all  property,   the  members of which Association control about 88 per cent of thc total  ,_ ,   _. ���������������������������  .  .,        ���������������������������,   '.insurance  reported  to  thc Dorain-  Banking and Commercial Commit-;ion Government, and all agree to  tec of thc House of Commons, thc |inainLain uni[onn ratos amj condi-  insurance  interests  were well   ot- !^������������������ons ���������������������������  ganisced and well represented ; tlie I v������������������'hcrcas the original object of  public for the most part was un- Icovernment regulation was for the  awarcthat any such causes were [pvo(;oction of" the public and not for  being introduced, and for this rea-|(1)C hcnc&b of tho in8liranco corn-  son there was no properly orgamz- [������������������anfcs .  ed opposition.

When he saw the complacency  with which thc lady of tho house  obeyed his behests hc said' cheerily: "Madam, I must tell you -or  your comfort, you have escaped  much befcfcer than a. certain lady  did a while ago, upon whose patience I intruded greatly more than  I have yours. She asked me for no  other purpose than to make a zany  cf mc and set me gabbling to a parcel of people I knew nothing of; so,  madam, I had my revenge on her,  for I swallowed fivo and twenty  cups of her tea."  Cumberland declared that his  wife would gladly have made tea  for Johnson "as long as the New  River could have supplied her with  water,'" for it was then, and then  only, ho was seen at his happiest  moments.  On his Scottish tour his inexorable demands for tea sorely tried  the patience of Lady Macleod of  Dunvcgan, who after giving him his  sixteenth cup suggested that further supplies in a small basin might  be agreeable tojhim.  "I wonder, madam," hc answered  roughly, "why all the ladies ask  mc such questions. It is to save  yourself trouble, madam, ancl nofc  mc."

One day the clerk, in  taking bach the book, was not so  cautious as usual, and tlie cashier  caught thc glint of a coin adhering  in it.

Remarkable differences prevailed  between August and September of  LAWYERS AND DOCTORS.  Enormous Fees   Whicli    Some   ol  Them .Receive..  From Los Angeles recently came  the report that the remarkable fee  of  $250,000 had  been  paid  to x.r.  Trueworthy of that city for his attendance on the late Mr. E. J. Baldwin,  the    Californian    millionaire,  known    on the    "other    side"  as  ''Lucky-Baldwin."    Ancl apparent-  ly the worthy doctor was in no way  impressed with the largeness of the  cheque, for he is said to have declared that if hc were paid afc thc  same rate as fche lawyers wlio arc  handling Mr.   Baldwin's  estate  he  ought to receive double the amount.  One'New York doctor got $1,000  for attending to fche fractured finger of a polo-player.-   Another received $15,000 for an  operation m  appendicitis.    A millionaire   paid a'  physician  $25,000 for a week's , attendance ; another specialist received $60,000 for a week's voyage with  a tuberculosis patient, who died on  coming into port;    while,    Mr. Armour paid Dr.   Lorenz $75,000 for  sotting   the hip   of    his   daughter  Lolita.  Compared with these facts, the  $75,000 .to 9100.000 a year made Dy  a number- of London specialists  seems rather small. But, of course,  825,000 and $50,000 cases are not  found evcry day ^Fifteen hundred  dollars, however, is not infrequently charged by London specialists  for one consultation, the average  running from $-100 to $500.  Famous English surgeons of the  past, however, liko Sir Astlcy Uoop-  p-v, Sir James Paget, Sir Morell  Mackenzie, Dr. Diinsdale, and Sir  Andrew Clarke, received fees which  compare very favorably with those  ot America. Sir M. Mackenzie was  paid $100,000 for his attendance on  thc father of the present Kaiser. It  is said that Sir Andrew Clarke received a fee of $25,000 for visiting  a lady at Nice, while for inoculating the Empress Catharine at St.  Petersburg Dr. Dimsdale was -re?  warded with tlio rank of Baron of  thc Empire, a pension of $2,500 per  annum, and a present of  Sir Astley Cooper and Sir James  Paget frequently received fees of  $7,500 each.  Ifc has been said that Sir"_,dward  Carson and Mr.  Rufus Isaacs' are  each making over $100,000 a year; ���������������������������  and one can well behove it, in view  of the fact that they usually receive  $5,000 as a retainer for a case and   .  $500 a day as a refresher while the "  case lasts.      Instances   of lawyers  whose fees have    made them  millionaires seem to be fairly common  in America.    Mr.  Dclma's fee for  defending Thaw has been given aa  from  $100,006 to  $200,uuo. Mr.  J. C. Tomlinson, a New York l.rw-  ycr, has received three fees ol  .300.000, $100,000 and $50,000 respectively.  Mr. Chauncey Dcpcw was once  $200,000 richer for his successful  conduct, of a bankruptcy case, wmlo  Mr. Elihu Root, the ex-Sccrctary  cl War in the States, received  $250,000 for negotiating the settlement of thc late Russell Sage's estate.

' v  Every woman has her pet super-  ititions. Something, to her, stands  for luck���������������������������a horseshoe picked up,  a four-leafed clover frund, a pin  gathered up from the floor, a black  cat straying into the house, a birthday stone, a lucky date or number,  etc.c She believe a by definite ex:  amples, and in this she is usually  correct. What she calls hick, has  really come to her the very day or  week in which she found the horseshoe or put on the birthday ring.  It is-not mere coincidence. It has  happened as she says. The only  thing she, fails, to see is just,why  and how it has happened, says Harper's Bazaar."  o The most important thing in life  Is one's attitude toward it. To the  wrong attitude life brings nothing.  To the right attitude it' brings everything. Thc blind doctrine of luck  ia the handmaid of this clear truth.  The woman who finds a four-leaved  clover and is convinced that life  holds something pleasant for her in  the immediate future gets at once  into the right attitude. . She looks  out for something good to come  along, and so she sees it and grasps  it. If she had not found the clover  and had gone dully and fretfully  along instead, she would never have  DRESSING POULTRY.  The manner in which poultry is  dressed determines largely the price  it will bring in market. All ill-  looking specimens, ragged and  torn, will be passed by for a better appearing bird by nine people  out of ten, even though the hard-  looking specimen may in reality be  a larger and fatter bird. It is not  a hard matter to dress them to loo_  neat, and as the price is what all  growers are after it pays to do  the work well.  The bird should have had access  to neither food nor water for  twenty-four hours, and should be  c.ught carefully so as nofc to bruise  it or badly frighten it. This is easily done in darkening fche place  where they arc confined, or catching with a crook, similar to the  cJd-time  shepherd's crook.  Suspend the bird, with a double-  edged poultry knife cut each side  I,  QUARRELSOME.  But why- did you leave your  last place?" the lady asked of the  would-be cook.  "To tell the truth,-mum," said  Sarah, "I just couldn't stand the  way the master an' the missus used  to quarrel, mum."  "Dear me! Do you mean to say  that they actually dared to quarrel  ���������������������������and before the servants?"  ''Why, yea, mum, ail the time.  When it wasn't me an' him, mum,  _���������������������������  it was me an'  her.'  POULTRY.

'  WATER GAUGE BURST. ������������������  C. P. R. Fireman Badly Scalded.  0. P. R. fireman, Geo. H. Duffus,  who lives in Robertson Street, Fort  William, while on his engine near  W7estford happened ��������������������������� with _ a nasty  accident. The water gauge of the  locomotive burst and scalded the  \cit side of his face and head terribly  "It so happened," said Duffus to  our representative, "that I had a  box of Zam-Buk in my pocket, which  I used for a sore on my lip, and  when I had recovered from fche first  shock of the accident,_r produced  the balm and had it applied freely  to the scalded parts. At the time  I applied it I was suffering acute  agony, but within a wonderful short  time Zam-Buk gave me ease. I was  able to continue my journey, and  upon reaching home I obtained  more Zam-Buk and continued the  treatment. It acted wonderfully  well, and in a few days had the  wound nicely healing. I don't  know anything so fine as a healer  of burns, scalds, cuts, and similar  injuries which workers are so liable,  to,- and in my opinion a box of Zam-  Buk should be kept handy-in every  worker's home."

BRIMACOMBE  Secretary  EARLY SPRING  GARDENS  LO.'O.E.  The warm weather of the past six  or eight days, while it may he only  an ordinary January thaw, has at  least made us think of the early  summer flower garden, and many are  the fingers that are itching to get to  work in the yards about our Enderby  homes. That Enderby will more than  ever engage in thc work of beautifying, we are    assured,   and  much can  even now bo accomplished in that  direction. In the Garden Magazine  for February, we'arc told that much  can be gained by storting nearly all  the commoner flowering plants in  heat now, by making a hot-bed. If  this is not convenient, by all means  adopt son re makeshift arrangement  such as a seed-box in the window, or  in the cellar. ' Take advantage of  the heat wherever it can be caught,  and start hardy annuals, "such as cal-  liopsis, Phlox Drumrnondi, etc., for  earliest flowers out-of-doors. The  half hardy sorts, such as China aster, gaillardia, salpiglossis, must be  sown indoors if they are to give good  results at all during the first half of  the summer. Cannas, castor oil plant  dahlias, pansies���������������������������all these are best  started during February. If you  want stock of tender bedding plants  begin propagation and pot up rooted  cuttings a.s fast as you can.  During February you can also-make  a big start in the vegetable garden  by starting globe artichokes for  planting out later; also broccoli, all  kinds of cabbage, including cauliflower, etc., cardoon, celeriac and  celery, leek, onions, pepper. Make a  sowing of lettuce; just a pinch of  seed' will give plants for the first out  door crop. For early salads, sow  cress, mustard, radish. Just a pinch  of seed each week for succession. The  of   all    these    depends upon  X^S0^' X!tJ__2'   Eureka Lodge. No. ������������������0  Meets every Tuesday evening at S o'clock, in I. 0.  0. F. hall, Metcalf block.
