The Columbia Flouring Mills Co. is  conducting a publicity campaign that  means vast good to the Okanagan,  ancl should mean big local business  for the company in Moffet's Best.  A number of enquiries have been  made at the office of the Walker Press  for price lists of the closing out sale  of trees -and -plants by the-Henry  Nurseries of Vancouver. We have  had to refer all such enquiries to the  Vancouver office of these popular  nurserymen.  Enderby merchants report the best  January business they have had since  starting business in the city. They  accept this as a good omen, and arc  placing in stock the largest ancl best  stocks of goods ever shown here. It  is certain that this summer will be  the most prosperous this district has  had, and will only be the start of  others to follow.  Only a small audience greeted Rev.  Mr. James in the Presbyterian church  on Monday evening, when he delivered his lecture on "Under Italian  Skies." It was unfortunate that it  was so, too, for Mr. James gave one  of the most instructive and interesting ��������������������������� evening's entertainments that it  has ever been Enderby's pleasure to  hear. Mr. James as a lecturer is  of the first rank. He takes his audience through all of the interesting  buildings of art that have made the  cities of Italy famous for centuries  past, and the message he gives you  carry away with you to dream about  in the quiet hour and enjoy.

K   R  ONE   MAN'S POINT OF VIEW  HE Walking Delegate is a disturbing element in' whatever  walk of business or social life  he is found. In nine cases out.of ten  he busies himself with the business of  others and with which he has absolutely nothing to do, or attempts to  "reform" or "better" the condition  of men and women who do not want  to be "reformed" or "bettered", and  in so doing the condition of all is  usually made worse. The only reformation or betterment of the community jor- the race that is worthy  the name must come from the individual, and be'lore there can be this  reformation or betterment, there  must be the desire from the heart  out. All attempts at reformation by  the process of law have ever resulted  in failure. History repeats itself!  The Jews of old had a law for every  bite, a raay-I for every breath. And  when Jesus Christ came and by his  life of soberness, kindness and integrity attempted to show them abetter  way, he was stoned, jailed and finally nailed upon the cross. Not that  he had ever injured anybody, or had  done anything against, his neighbor,  but he fluted the fool laws of'the  Pharisees and laughed at their scorn.  They had Sabbath laws in those days  and Walking Delegates in the robes  of Pharisees went about seeking  whom they may devour for breaking  them. One day they saw the Christ  and his   deciples   picking   corn in a  corn field,_ and    at .once   cried unto  -them. __Whv_do _ye_that-which. is_not.  lawful on tbe Sabbath!"     And from  that on the holy    scribes hound The  Man of  Sorrow from pillar to  pest  and finally    drove    nails through his  hands and   feet,    placed   a crown of  thorns upon his brow and left him to  die upon the tree.   Cruel, wasn't it?  Yes, damnably cruel.   But listen: The  Pharisees of old were no less sincere,  and perhaps   no   more   cruel   in the  measure of the light they had,  than  are the Pharisees of the present day.  Canada has an organization known  as   the   Lord's   Day   Alliance.     Thc  measure    of   the   men���������������������������the    Walking  Delegates���������������������������at its head,  is thc measure of its usefulness as an organization.   If we   are   to judge it by its  works it is .following the course that  leads  to   Gothsemane.    Reference to  an article on page five of this issue  will show the Pharisaical tendency of  this organization's   method of operation.   One cannot read of its determination to keep from the people its  proceedings until the laws desired by  it are   forced   upon   the government  by secret methods without feeling for  it shame and pity.   The Hedley Gazette well puts it when it saysT   "The  Lord's Day Alliance were given rope  enough    to   hang    themselves   when  their request to have post office lobbies locked on Sundays was granted  and  the  regulations   enforced.     The  senseless   pettiness    of the thing so  soon became apparent to the general  public that a   storm   of protest has  gone up all over the country against  the arrangement,   and   the   Alliance  will find that their stupid, meddling  in this matter   has done them' more  harm_.than._they._can_undo_for_.many.  years to come."  ooo  The suggestion has been made by a  fanner who makes Enderby his purchasing centre, that it would be wisdom on the city's part to erect a  hitching rail along Maud street just  back of the station, with a covering  to protect the horses from the heat  in summer and the storms of winter.  The east side of the street is not  used for any purpose, and the idea is  certainly worth considering. The  hitching posts in front of the stores  afford very little accommodation at  best and have a tendency to keep  Cliff street dirty and broken up.  ooo  The only thing advertised in the  columns of this paper as lost or  found without the owner or the article turning up is a fur for the neck,  which is still unclaimed at this office,  and the junk pile owned by the  Lieutenant-Governor of British Columbia, and still awaits an owner on  the railway right-of-way in front of  the handsome Moffet property like a  boil on the nose of a May-Queen,  ooo  Handle your tools without mittens.  The   cat   in    gloves   would   have a  dickens of a time catching the mouse  ���������������������������now, wouldn't she?  ooo  Will the City take up the matter of-  sidcwalking and planting to trees the  beautiful spot on the river shore  near the bridge ?  ooo  The flower gardens.

H.-(Conl'd)  For once ia hi:, life. Dr. Kennedy  fried to be very kind siv.d attentive  to iiis bride,   who,  naturally hopo-  fu!_ and inclined to  look  upon  thc  brighter side,  dried hcr (.cars soon  after entering the cars, and begun  " to fancy she wa.s very happy in her  new  position  as    the  wife  of  Dr.  Kennedy.   Thc seat in front of them  was  turned  back and occupied  by  Maude, who busied herself awhile  in watching the fence and the trees,  which she said  were  "running    so  fast  toward    Janet      .nd  home!:''  Then' hcr dark    eyes    would scan  curiously the faces of Dr. Kennedy  nnd  hcr mother,  resting upon  thc  latter   with  ������������������i  puzzled   expression,  as if she could not exactly  understand  it.    The  doctor persisted in  calling her Matilda, and as she resolutely persisted in refusing to answer to that name, it seemed quite  improbable  that  they    would  ever  talk much  together.    Occasionally,  it is true,  he made  hcr some  advances,   by   playfully   offering  hcr  his hand, but she would not touch  ifc  .and affce1' ������������������ *;���������������������������n   ^-  peeled to pass by daylight through  the Empire State, and she had  thought wilh how much delight'her  eye would rest upon the grassy  meadows, the fertile plains, tlie  winding Mohawk, thc drone-like  boats on thc canal, the beautiful  Cayuga, and the silvery water so  famed in song; but. in contrast to  all this, she was shut up in a dingy  car, whose ono dim lamp sent forth  a sickly ray and sicklier smell, while  without, all was gloomy, dark, and  cirear. Xo wonder, then, that when  toward morning Maude, who missed  n to erv for  her soft, nice bed, b  Janet und for home, the mother  too burst forth in tears and choking sobs, which could not be controlled.  a time, standing upon  the scat and turning round, slie  found more agreeable society in thc  company of two school boys who safc  directly behind her.  ��������������������������� They were evidently twelve 01  thirteen years of age, and in personal appearance somewhat alike,  save that the face 01' the brown-  haired buy was more upon, ingenuous, ancl pleasing than that of his  companion, whose hair and eyes  were black as night. A jolt of the  cars caused Maude to lay her chubby hand upon the shoulder uf the  elder boy. who. being very fond of  children, caught it within his own,  and in this way made hcr. acquaintance. To him she was very communicative, and in a short time hc  learned (hat "''her name was Maude  Remington, that the pretty lady in  brown was hcr mother, and that  tbe naughty man was not her father  and never would be, for Janet' said  so."  1  /'Hush, Matty  disturbed doctor  gently  -y jn'c.  and 'tis a max"���������������������������he.

At that moment Matty lifted up  hcr head, but as Maude was no  tale-bearer, and the doctor hardly  dared to tell her that hc had thus  early taken upon himself thc government of her child, she never  knew exactly what it was which  made Maude's ea-r so reel or her  lioge lord's face so dark.  It v/as nearly noon when fchey arrived at Canandaigua, where the  first object which caught Mrs. Kennedy's eye was an old-fashioned  carry-all, which hcr husband honored with thc apcllation of carriage,  said carriage being drawn by two  farm-horses, which looked as if oats  and corn were to them luxuries unknown.  tiny portico in  front and    a  long  piazza in the rear.   In all the town,  there was not so delightful a location,  for it commanded  a view of  the country for many miles around,  while, from the chamber windows,  wasoplainly discernible,  thc sparkling Honeoyc.  whose waters slept  ���������������������������so calmly 'mid the hills which lay  lo  the  southward.    On the grassy  lawn in front, tall forest trees were  growing,    almost     concealing    thc  house from view,   while their long  branches    so met   together   as to  form a beautiful arch over thc graveled  walk  which    led to thc front  door.     It was,  indeed,  a pleasant  spot,  and    Malty,   as she    passed  through thc iron gate, couid not account for thc feeling of desolation  settling down upon her.  "Maybe it's because there .are no  flowers here-no roses," she  thought, as she looked around in  vain for hcr favorites, thinking the  while how her first work should" be  to train .1 honeysuckle over thc  door, and plant a rosebush underneath the window.  Poor Matty. Dr. Kennedy had  no love for flowers, and the only  rosebush he ever noticed was the  one which John had planted afc his  mistress', grave, and even this  would, perchance, have been unseen  if he had not scratched his hand  unmercifully upon it, as he one day  shook the stone, to see if it were  firmly plared in the ground, ere he  paid thc man for putting ifc there!  It was a maxim of thc doctor's never  to have anything not strictly for  use, consequently his house, both  outside and in, was destitute of  evcry kind of ornament, ancl the  bride, as she followed him through  the empty hall into thc silent parlor, whose, bare walls, faded carpet,  and uncurtained windows seemed so  uninviting, felt a chill creeping over  ently, as he replied : "Yes,  Nellie  is  rather pretty,   and,  considering  all things,   is    as    well-behaved a  child as  one often finds.    She seldom gets into a passion,   or  does  anything rude,"  and hc glanced at  thc long scratch upon his hand ; but  as his wife  knew    nothing of said  scratch, thc rebuke was wholly lost,  and he. continued.    ;'I was anxious  that she should be  a boy, for it is  a mixim  of mine  that    the  oldest  child in evcry family ought lo be a  son, and so I said,  repeatedly, to  the late Mrs. Kennedy, who, though  a most excellent    woman in most  matters, was, in others, unaccountably set in her way.    \ suppose I  said some harsh things when 1 heard  it was a daughter, but it can't be  helped  now,"   and  with  a" slightly  injured air the husband of "the late  Mrs. Kennedy"began to pace up and  down the room,  whilo thc present-  Mrs.  Kennedy puzzled hcr rather  weak brain to know "what in thc  world he meant."

Mrs. Kennedy smiled gratefully  upon him, feeling sure that beneath  hie black exterior there beat a kind  and sympathizing heart, and that in  him  she had an ally and a friend.  "Where is Nellie?" said thc doctor. "'Call .Nellie, John, and tell  your mother we are here."  John left the room, and a moment  after  a little tiny    creature  came  ripping  to  thc    door,   where  she  ?ad  of    ii  si  con  _ ���������������������������  .  twenty  nisi ..a.   ot    live  not. better have defined lhe differ  (.���������������������������nee between llu. ;o two young lads,  ���������������������������and-in   afu-r-s. a i.   .Ik1-   had   eau-e  for remembering words whicli seem-  ed   almost   prophetic.

Why is it, when any common  mind could easily reason to ifc.that  a cow needs :jusfc as good air as thc  men aud women do, that farmers  shut up a stable of cows with all  their manures and urine about  them, w thout a supply of fresh air  and proceed deliberately to poison  their cows to death. j  Why is it, when ifc must be apparent before their eyes every day,  that the farmers who arc most intelligent, arc thc most prosperous,  that so large a proportion of men  who keep cows will nofc read or  take any pains to inform themselves on this dairy question . Why  do such men prefer to be ignorant  rather than intelligent?  Why is it. that.-when thousands  upon thousands of farmers use silos  and declare constantly that thc  silo-is a money-mtking thing, it is  so hard fco convince a large portion  of other farmers that it would be a  wise thing for them if they built a  tiW. ���������������������������    Why is it, that a great proportion of fanners will persist in feeding oats worth $23 a ton, and com  worth (hc same, when they could  sell thc grain and buy a better feed  that will produce a quarter Lo a  third more, milk, for a much less  proportion in  price ?  Why is it that so many farmers  will still use the dirty,-uncomfortable rigid old stanchion with all  Lhe danger of injury to the cow  stepping on thc teats and udder of  thc next cow when she is laying  down ?  Why is it, that so few farmers  will put in tho King system of ventilation in their stables and more  will persist in building new barns  and stables with no provision whatever for such a system of ventilation when it would be very easy to  provide this almost indispcnsible  thing for thc health and increased  efficiency of thc cattle .  Why is it, that ifc is so hard and  -such slow work in getting farmers  to take especial pains to produce  clean, sweet cream for the creamery, and see to it that lhe  cream i* sent to the creamery  before it is spoiled and unfit to  make good butter from it?  Why is it, that farmers as a class,  arc so slow and difficult to convince  of the value of all these much  needed improvements and of a  change on their part towards such  improvements  After all the missionary work  that has been put forth, but comparatively few of our farmers are  alive to these questions.���������������������������Hoard's  Dairyman.  Kansas has been doing some most''  excellent work in improving seed'  wheat, beginning with the Turkey  or Turkish Red, which was introduced in that state some twenty-  live years ago by Mcnnonifces from  I.ussia.  The United State Department of  Agriculture has been bringing over  in the last ten years a large number  of samples.      Thc experiment  station    has    been     growing    and  breeding (hem, and has  been  distributing     them     among    Kansas  farmers.     It may perhaps surprises  those  who have only  a very little  faith  in  growing  winter  wheat  to  know that  the average yield  from  the different varieties of this Turkish  Red wheat,  whieh  goes under  thc various names of Kharkov, Defiance, Malakof, Crimean, Hungarian, Wciscnberg, and Ghirka, have-  averaged from thirty-eight to fifty-  six bushels per  acre."    This, be  ifc  remembered, is thc average for five  years.     A number of varieties havo-  yielded  this  last year  from  forty-  six- to fifty-four bushels per acre.  The station has also been experimenting with soft wheats, which  do better in thc southern part of  that state and corresponding climates than in thc central or northern parts ancl climates north. The  yield of these has averaged for tho  last- four years from thirty-five to-  for ly-one bushels per acre.  -*���������������������������  WON'T SEE   C031 E'l. FOR YEARS.

One thing of striking interest was thc recent discovery of  a message which the King of Baby-'  Ion sent to the King of the Hittite,  which read: "I hear you are carrying on with the King of Egypt.  What does this mean?"  The Hittite king then made an  extract from thc treaty hc nad jus',  concluded with a Pharaoh and sent  it to the Babylonian king, at th/  same timo keeping a copy of his letter.

The spectacle of a disheveled man madly chasing his; hat  across the street is one that never  loses its zest; and it'is said by a  writer'in the London Globe that  the dignity of thc British House of  Commons is'not seldom, relieved,by  some unfortunate statesman's misadventure with his glossy "stopper."      "������������������������������������������������������'.:  ' The House' is always hugely delighted when a member sits on his  hat, as Colonel Lockwood did one  night, and the incident, although  by no means infrequent, never  seems   to pall.  As a matter of fact, the member1  who provides some such relief as  this at a time when party feeling  runs high does a considerable although unwitting service. It is a  matter of common observation that  the tension between parties is always sensibly-relaxed when one of  these little incidents has.occurred.  The most famous hat incident  took place -when Mr. Gladstone was  "PremieF"for_tKe_tliircrtimc, and "llaxT  to intervene on a point of order  after a division had been called.  The rules require that in such circumstances thc member addressing  the chair must do so with his hat  on, and Mr Gladstone could not  find his hat.  In despair he grabbed that of a  colleague, which was afc least four  sizes too small for" him", and "the  spectacle of thc minute head-gear  rocking about on Mr. Gladstone's  massive head was one that those  who saw it will never forget.

FEBRUARY 24, 1910  PUBLIC SCHOOL SANITATION  Druggist & Stationer  Cliff St. Enderby  j It is believed that the following remarks on school sanitation (copied  , from a recent number of the Journal  of Education, published by the Government of Nova Scotia ancl reproduced in the B. C. Public School Report) ' will prove both interesting and  i profitable to all school officials, as  well as the parents or ail school children. "With good health, everything;  with bad health, nothing."  To the Teacher: The poisons of  some of the common as well as some  of the most loathsome diseases are  frequently contained in the mouth.  In   such   cases    anything    which    is  when turning the leaves of books.  Do not put pencils into the mouth  or wet then, with the lips.  Do not put money into the mouth.  Do not put pins into the mouth.  Do not put anything into the mouth  except food and drink.  Do not swap apple cores, candy,  chewing gum, half-eaten food, bean  j blowers 'or whistles, or anything that  I is put in the mouth.  j Do not drink out of the common  j drinking cup before allowing some  j water to run over the edge of the  I cup that is to be applied to the lips.  j Never cough or sneeze in a person's  face.   Turn your face aside.  Keep your face and hands clean;  wash the hands with soap and water  before each meal.  <S������������������S*S)������������������XS>$^$ .Kj)^^^ <$_)$_>3_)^������������������^������������������3>(_Ke^^ )^������������������^������������������^>  _������������������ $  AUSTRALIA'S DEFENSIVE PLAN  Premier Deal un of Australia, in a  speech a few days ago at Sydney,  stated that the military scheme  which had   been    received from Lord  Kitchener,    would    make the defence  _  act more effective.

Fulton  Hardware, Tin & Plumbing  Establishment.    Enderby  A month or two ago the following  circular letter was sent to the press  throughout the west, and presumably  the east, by the .Canadian Rational  Sunday League, with reference to the  methods of the Lord's Day Alliance:  "The secret methods of the Lord's  Day Alliance have recently come to  light. The public has at last become  aware of the methods which are used  by that body to make legislation and  ting on our statute books? Will the  public be confident that the aims of  the Alliance are solely for the public  welfare? Is the Alliance a purely  disinterested party?  "For two and a half years the Rational Sunday League has appeared  before the public soliciting its support and endeavoring to express in  various ways the desire of the public  for a better    and    more    reasonable  also to   enforce   it.     Several letters ; Sunday.  sent out by the Alliance have reached  citizens who behold the serious inroads that this organization is making upon public rights.  "Letter No. 1, marked 'important,  confidential, personal,' reads in part  as follows: 'Toronto, Oct. 28.

In spite of thc fact Lhat the city  of London is universally regarded  as one'of the richest of the cities  _������������������ the world, and certainly as the  wealthiest and most important  ���������������������������square mile on thc face of the globe,  it is not generally appreciated how  numerous and how costly are the  activities of the ancient corporation which governs that city and to  what an extent the people of the  London outside the city���������������������������the Greater London���������������������������is indebted to thc city  fathers.  The. London Express of a recent  date contained thc following interesting article.  Before attempting a summary of  the work of thc city and of thc great  cost of it, let me. cite two instances  of .hat might well be called its disinterested generosity. I find those  In the new ''"Old Bailey" and in the  i>pen space outside the city boundaries, but maintained by the corporation. Only a very small part  Di' thc work of'the "Old Bailey" is  provided by the city. Middlesex.  Surrey, Kent, Essex, and Hertford  ill bring their criminals to its bar;  but the entire cost, which amounts  lo nearly $00,000 a year, is borne  by the city.  So, too, with the open spaces,  Epping Forest, Burnham Beeches,  High gate Woods. West Wickham  ��������������������������� and Coulsdon Commons, and West  Ham Park have been preserved to  the public largely by city funds,  and now form an annual charge  upon them of about 870,000. Epping Forest alone costs the city  $23,500 a year.  KEEPING LAW AND OREDR.  But the cost of running the city  is not to be estimated by such com-_  paratively small sums as these.  Take, for example, what the city  spends on thi. preservation of law  and order and thc prevention of  crime. One item alone���������������������������the maintenance of the police.force���������������������������absorbs  5900,000���������������������������add to this thc $58,500 for  the Central Criminal Court���������������������������a  building, by the way, whieh has cost  the capital sum of $1,715,000; some  hand, the wages are good, and the  city holds a fine record in the length  of service rendered by its employes  and the generous pensions they receive when they are no longer fit  for active work.  INSANE EXPENSIVE.  Then there is thc city's asylum,  which i.s run at thc cost of $135,000  a year, of which .$85,000 comes back  in the form of payments of private  patients; thc expense of thc Guildhall Library and Museum, amounting to .40.000, and all of it "out-  of-pockets" ; thc cost of such schools  as the City of London's schools for  boys and girls and the Freeman's  Orphan school, accounting for another $145,000, with a net loss of  about ������������������70,000; nor must one forget  that the SG5.000 spent in connection  with the Mansion House (including  robes for the Lord Mayor and the  upkeep- of the famous coach and  harness) is an item to be regarded  as a clear loss, from a financial  point of view.  LUNCHEON $10,000.  In the working of so great an institution as the city corporation,  whose credits in its balance sheet  exceed seven million pounds, and  whose work is so diverse and diffuse (doesn't it, by the way, risk  an annual liability" of $125,000 for  its School of Music) ? it may be expected that one would find some  curious items both of expenditure  and receipt. Space will not permit  of an account of these, but it will  $43,000 for thc .Mayor's Court,  which deals out ready and admirable justice in civic cases; $35,COO  for the city of London and certain  lesser courts; and no less a sum  thin $50,000 for magisterial dealings with minor crimes. I. should  point out, however, that thc expenses of thc city of London court  are considerably minimized by thc  fees received from litigants, and  the same remark would apply, but  with less force, to the ancient mayor's court in the Guildhall.  A great liability is always facing  thc city in respect of thc bridges  which span the river and rest one  end on thc city shore. Thc Tower  "Briefgc. " for-"instahe'e,~~c6nstiWtelf  an annual charge of no less than  $68,500; but thc Bridge House Estates have been so admirably managed in the past they they now  produce an income greatly in excess���������������������������some $'100,000 in excess���������������������������-of  the expenditure under tliat head.  COST OF MARKET.  probably interest our readers to  hear that, while thc city has to pay  $1,000 a year to keep up the Monument, it recovers from the public  no less than 83,800 in fees and $100  for the guide book to that familiar  column ; that the average cost of a  royal luncheon in the city is $10,-  000; that thc supply of gas and wa-  tci at the Temple Bar Memorial  amounts to SlOO; that the city expended last year $1,700 on landing  dead bodies found in the Thames;  and that the lord mayor���������������������������happiest  of all British taxpayers���������������������������has the  ^viable privilege of not paying  income tax on his mayoral _50,000  a year.  One final item. At the last royal  reception at the Guildhall, in one  crowded hour of glorious life, the  Guard, of Honor contrived to consume $100 worth of  ments !"  ta  was entirely    traversed  in  the  Duke of Connaught's  motor-car.  "SQUIRE OF SANDRINGHAM."'  His Majesty is, indeed, at his  best when he is at home in Norfolk. Then he becomes as oue of  thc Norfolk farmers, and the people of King's Lynn delight to name  him "Thc Squire of Sandringham."  Those of us who most highly appreciate his majesty for his great gifts  of statesmanship, for his illustrious  position among European rulers,  for his power, as _ I. Dclcassc put  it, of doing the right thing in thc  right way at the right time in thc  right placo, have only a slight idea  of the deep affection which is entertained for the King as squire.  He is the best of landlords, of  course, but he is also a strict one.  No public-house is allowed on his  majesty's property. Instead, he  has provided clubhouses in evcry  village on the estate.  The King is not in the least selfish in the enjoyment of his Norfolk estate. Even on days when big  shoots are toward, with perhaps the  famous Horseshoe covert to wind  up the day, there are few restrictions imposed. Not only is Sand-  ringham one of the most perfectly  managed properties in England,  but it is one of thc most'open. Wide  highways intersect it.

Jle is not afraid of rain, and my  observation leads to thc belief that  lie actually revels in thc brisk freshness of a heavy shower.

November usually finds a damp wind  blowing from the Wash, an unpleasant product of the North sea. but  for the wayfarer the sturdy pines  break its force and, even in winter,  give a fresh, wholesome aroma to  the air. From the end of thc avenue the Wash may be seen on a fine  day glittering in Uic sunshine, but  normally when frost is absent it is  a dull brown stretch of shallows.  The avenue is open to any ono bent  on an autumn walk, and all thc  ravages of the storm of two years  ago have ben repaired.  His majesty has not attempted tb  be a crack shot like his friend and  cousin the late Don   Carlos or his  lively nephew the King of Spain.  King Alfonso likes to take off coat  and cap when he gets in a hot corner and make thc most of it.   With  his majesty-,  I fancy, shooting is a  means to  an end.     He   likes the  sport for its own    sake, but more  because it   takes him    among thc  healthy delights of field and wood.  Motoring thc King has made an  art.    It has meant much to him in  the ease and comfort with whieh he  can  spend hours in  fresh  air and  all the time in open country.    He  has robbed ceremonial of half   its  tir somen ess by  his  recognition of  the capabilities of a    perfectly organized motor stable.  and world traveller.

But thc great cost of running thc  city is perhaps more apparent when  one considers its expenditure on the  public health. Here there is a "little bill" of $050,000, of which, in  addition to $15,000 spent in direct  salaries and wages, no less than  $305,000 i.s required for sanitary expenses, $185,000 i'or paving and repairing pavements and $130,000 for  cleansing and watering.  ���������������������������As an employer, thc city is a  great bsnefactor to the country at  large, and must pay in salaries and  wages some half a million a year.  Nor can anyone say that its salaries  do not form a living wage���������������������������whether  we look at tho recorder, who receives $22,500 a year, or the common serjeant, with his $15,000 a  year, or tho city chamberlain, with  A similar salary,      On   the other  him do so.

No  place in the world can compare to  Chicago in its after dark wickedness, and therefore I say that anyone who has done the great good  here that Miss Addams has deserves more credit than those in  similar work in other cities. Thc  conditions she has had to face must  have appalled a fainter heart.  ��������������������������� "Chicago is not only bad in social conditions, but physically, it is  ugly.

A few days after the Pannonia  had left Flurnc one of the passengers was heating water over an al-  jcohol lamp. A sudden lurch of the  vessel tipped over the lamp, whicl  was resting on thc edge of the wo  man's berth, and thc sheet tooi  fire.

An intimate friendship between a  pet white rat and a big eat is reported by a correspondent of St.  Nicholas. When the white rat was  about 2 months old by accident a  stray cat was allowed to enter the  room. It was immediately expected that pussy would devour thc rat.  But there was great surprise  when the rat instead of showing  fright and running away ran toward thc cat and nestled itself under the cat's warm breast. Thc  cat is apparently as fond of this  white rat as she would be of her  own kittens.  When they arc fed they arc given  pieces of meat cut in strings. Each-  one gets hold of a string at either  end and they try to see which can  eat the most of it. The cat usually  wins because she is the stronger.  If the white rat is missing the  cat hunts first in the wicker basket  in which they sleep together and  then in every nook and corner and  sometimes in the collar or attic until she finds the rat. -  Pussy and the white rat have bceii  together now for a little over a  year, and the cat is thoroughly responsible for this, for when stray  cats come around to the back  door she jumps out of her corner,  shows fight -and chases them.  HIGHEST RAILWAY BRIDGE.  Rests on   -13.000   Cubic   Metres of  Solid Masonry*  The Fades railway viaduct, carrying thc Paris (France) main lino  between Montlucon and Clermont-  Ferrand over thc Sioule gorge, has  just been opened. Situated between Sain .-Priest-Sanret ancl  Ancizes-Saint-Georges, it rises to a  Ketgfr t"7> f=n"_"a_"l jrM 50=f __1fl_b_."e^tlfeT  level of thc valley, and is said to  be thc highest railway bridge in  the world. French journals assert  that it.is fifteen feet higher than the  Goktcek bridge in the Shan hills  in Burma, and thirty feet higher  than the Garabit bridge over the  Truyerc valley in the Department  of the Canal.  " The bridge," which" is a" con- :  tinuous steel girder structure 525  yards in length and 22 feet wide,  with a lattice bracing 40 feet deep  and weighing 2, .00 tons, is supported on two enormous rectangular piers of masonry over 300 feet  high, ivhich in turn rests on pedestal bases nearly 70 feet high. The  43,000 cubic metres of masonry upon which the bridge is supported is  founded on solid rock. Thc centre  span between the two piers is 470  feet long, and is flanked by two  spans each 380 feet in length. Tho  centre span wa.s constructed in sections, 20 feet to 25 feet long, which  wore built out, section by section,  from each pier until the two arms  met and were joined.  Thc work begun in October,  1901, was delayed by thc subsidence  of the rock foundation of one of tho  abutments, the designs of which  had ultimately been modified. The  bridge had in consequence to be  continued for a distance of nearly  180 feet over an auxiliary pier 100  feet high, the foundations of which  were sunk to a depth of nearly 150  feet.

Fortune" Harbor, Nfld., Dec. 20.���������������������������  (Special).���������������������������Sixty years of age, but  hale and hearty and with all the vigor of a young man, Mr. Richard  Quirk, well knowri and highly respected' here, gives all the credit  for his good health to Dodd's Kidney Pills.  "I suffered for over twenty years  from Lumbago and Kidney Disease," Mr. Quirk says, "and after  consulting doctors and taking their  medicines, made up my mind 1 was  incurable. I was unable to work  when I was persuaded to buy a box  of Dodd's Kidney Pills. To" my-  great and happy surprise I had not  taken half a box when I experienced great relief. Seven boxes  cured me. That was in 1900, and I  am still cured. I would not be without Dodd's Kidney Pills for any  money. I am twenty years younger  than before I took them."  Dodd's Kidney Pills cure the kidneys. Healthy kidneys strain all  the impurities out of .the blood.  That's why they cure Rheumatism,  Sciatica, and other diseases caused  by the presence of uric acid in the  blood.  ���������������������������*   PRECIOUS  STONES OF INDIA.  Diamond   Industry   Limited���������������������������Ruby  Mining Profitable.  Diamonds, rubies, sapphires, spinels, tourmalines, garnets, rock  crystals, and various sorts of amber  and jadcite are the-precious stones  found on India's coral strand. The  ruby and jadcite are the only stones  of considerable value produced.  Large quantities o* turquoise come  from Sikkiin and Tibet, that from,  the latter country being harder,  darker blue, and therefore more  .valuable. The importation of precious stones into India amounts annually to about $4,900,000. "   -  The deamond industry is limited,  and is carried on in southern India,  the northern part of the Indian peninsula and in the central provinces.  Ruby mining is- carried on in Upper Burma-and .next to petroleum,  is the most profitable of the mineral resources of the state, the va'ue  ��������������������������� ofthe product being about $500,000  annually.      One. ruby  of seventy-  - Fevcn carats  was taken out a fjw  years ago valued at $133,330.  Sapphires used to be mined in  Kashmir, but the mines are now  said to bo exhausted. The yellow,  white, blue and green varieties \  sapphires aro found in the ruby  bearing gravels in Burma. The  spinel is    found - in    considerable  - quantities in Burma.  Tourmaline stones of blue, gr.sn  and black in coloring are found in  Upper Burma, Garnets arc mined  in Jaipur. Rock crystal, cut for  cheap jewelry, known as valeain  diamonds, is found in Madras.

Thc preliminary regulations have  been kept secret for fear of international complications, but it is  now known that the powerful Ito  Society (the object of the society is  to procure a territory upon an autonomous basis for those Jews who  cannot remain in the lands where  they at present live) sent an expedition there quite recently, and  though their report is not exactly  favorable, it is, on thc other hand,  not so unfavorable as to deter the  bolder Jewish spirits from attempting an organized scheme of colonization.  A thousand lusty young men,  armed for protection against the  fierce Arab nomads, are to be the  pioneer settlers. After them will  come the older men with their  wives and families. Transportation will not be difficult, for the  new holy land lies within easy distance of both Russia and Palestine.  It is even nearer southern -Europe.  Yet it has been closed to Europeans  from time immemorial. This .is  owing to the -jealousy of the Turkish Government, which has absolutely declined, except on very rare  occasions, to permit travellers to  pass into the interior.  Yet Turkey welcomes the Jews as  Jews, the reason being, that they  have behind them neither soldiers  nor gunboats, so that thre is no  fear of the Porte being called upon  to pay compensation in case a few  scores of them arc killed by thc desert tribesmen. .  And this is an eventuality that is  very likely to happen, for no more  dangerous pcople exist anywhere  than the fierce fanatics who now occupy the territory which it is' presently proposed to ealL by its  anoicnt name of Cyrenacia.���������������������������Pearson's Weekly.

Russian explorers have made a  singular and most interesting discovery of a subterranean city in  Central Asia. In. Turkestan, on  the right bank of thc Amu Darya,  in a chain of rocky hills near the  Bokharan town of Karki, are a  number of large caves, which upon  examination were found to lead to  a. underground city, built, apparently, long before the Christian 'era.  _ According to thc effigies, inscriptions and designs upon the gold  and silver money unearthed from  among the ruins, thc existence of  the town dates back to some two  centuries before the birth of Christ.  The edifices contain all kinds of  domestic utensils, pots, urns and  vases..  The high degree of civilization attained by the inhabitants of thc city  is shown by the fact that they built  in several stories; by'the symmetry of the streets and squares, and  bv the beauty of the baked clay and  metal utensils, and of the ornaments and coins which have been  found.  It is supposed that long centuries  ago this city, so carefully concealed  in the bowels of the 'earth, provided large numbers of people with a  refuge from the incursions of na-  madic savages and robbers'.  r-s���������������������������jL-t**;*?.-:*~ >���������������������������. ���������������������������  .-���������������������������  COUGHS & COLDS  LEAD TO CONSUMPTION  Colds are the most dangerous of all  forms of diseao.

AGAINST THE ORDER  The following resolutions passed by '���������������������������  the Alberni Board of Trade indicates  the line of objection    to the Sunday j  closing order which was recently made _  by the Postmaster General: j  "Whereas,    it   appears that a rule ���������������������������  has been issued that the public shall :  be denied access   to their post office  boxes from midnight on Saturday to  midnight on Sunday of each week. .

ENDERBY  TIMBER LICENCE ACT  The act to amend the Land Act in  which provision is made for the per-  ^ptLuaL__tenure���������������������������of-=timber���������������������������l,.nd=-lield-  under special licence,  was introduced  last week by Hon. Price Ellison, chief  , commissioner of lands.     The amend-  jing act provides that special timber  ! licenses shall be transferable and re-  I newable from year to year while mer-  ' chantable timber in sufficient quantity to make it commercially valuable  exists on   the    land    covered by thc  , license.   It i.s provided that the holder of any license who wishes to rc-  (new    under   thc    provisions   of    the  amendment    act   granting perpetuity  of  tenure must surrender his  old  li-  ' cense within two years from April 1,  1910.  time of arrival is  lar and frequently  night, it will involve that the people  ! in the town and still more, people j  .living a few miles distant, will have \  , to wait for hours on Saturday night, i  i the tardy arrival of the mail or else  be unable to answer letters by the  following mail, which, in places not  ' receiving more than a bi-weekly ser-  ; vice, would mean a delay of four  days. Sunday is often" the only day  ' in the week that men working at a  ' distance from the postoffice, can get  down for their letters. The rule pro-  ' posed would be an inconvenience to  the postmasters themselves as the  boxes being accessible to the public  on Sunday causes them no trouble or  Sunday work, while the new rule  would compel their attendance at the  office both at midnight on Saturday  | and also at midnight on Sunday, a  I very irksome restriction, more especially in cases where, as often happens, the postmaster does not live  Ion the premises. Moreover, the need  | of such rule has not been demonstrated by any public agitation or dis-  ' cussion or called for by any representative body so far as we know.  ! "Therefore, the members of the Al-  1 bcrni Board of Trade do strongly  j urge upon the postal authorities the  | advisability of cancelling the said  'regulation. And further resolved  1 that copies of this regulation be sent  to the Postmaster-General, the inspector for British Columbia and to  I our Dominion and Provincial mem-  ibers."  y ������������������!teo [.,?,f__ ish������������������w y������������������u this season's samples and the new styles of  cut.,.

In a recent issue the Penticton  j Press gives some figures relating to  ;the cost of cement sidewalks which  ! should be of interest to the people nf  Enderby.   It says:  "If the business people of Penticton wish to assist the Council in  building up the town without adding  to the burden of the municipality,  there is no better way for them to  do it than by having granolithic  sidewalks built in front of their  properties. It is customary in the  laying of granolithic walks for a  town or municipality to borrow the  sum required to do the work and  then charge up the whole amount  against the property along the side  of the street upon which the walk is  The Armstrong Advertiser has  this to say: "Mail is of the utmost  importance. Canada depends on mail  being received promptly, and a hundred and one complications arc sure  ! to arise from this order being put  into effect. A day's delay in the receipt of communications very often  has resulted in immense loss and entanglements. The very unreasonable-  ! ness of the order will defeat it. No  one wishes to work- on Sunday, and  employees are never asked to, except  in rare instances when absolute and  positive necessity compels it, and all  the man-made laws In creation will  be of no effect when this condition  arises."
