A. Covey left for Chase on  Monday, where she will join her. husband.  The Enderby Band will give' a social dance in K.- P. Hall on Stl Patrick's Day night.  S.. Poison was a visitor.to Enderby  from Vernon this week, on matters  relating to his business here.  A leak in the water main at a point'  near the bridge, caused the water tb  ��������������������������� be cut off for half a day Wednesday.  ' "R. F. E. DeHart was in Enderby  the past week in connection with a  land deal he is negotiating near Enderby for Kelowna capital.  J. L. Ruttan is adding a west wing  to his Belvedere-street residence, and  contemplates brick -veneering the  walls of the entire building.  We are", in receipt of M. J.'

Minneapolis  on'.Wednesday, leaving behind-a host  of Enderby friends who. hope to see  her^ return to the ' Okanagan in the  good old summer time.  Anyone suffering - from eye trouble  will do well to take advantage of the  opportunity to get the opinion of an'  expert, in Dr. Miller, who is at the  King Edward hotel next week.  There will be a meeting of .the newspapermen of the Valley at Vernon  Friday and Saturday,to discuss conditions looking to the welfare of the  trade.  __W_._A'. _ Russell_will_.start__.work _on_a.  are up' to play the finals. No' game  for more than a week, but an effort  is to be made to pull them off this  morning 'and "evening.  Wonder what price the Lieutenant-  Governor of British. Columbia would  set on his interest .in the.junk pile  covered by an old shed on the C.P.R.  right of way, near the station? It  would add inestimably to the appearance of the handsome mill property and the new'Moffet home if this  eye-sore could be removed from the  landscape.

H. F. Wilmut, of Vernon,,provincial tax collector, was in Enderby on  Tuesday cleaning up government taxes which were unpaid when Enderby  became incorporated.  Contractor Russell is pushing work  rapidly on the concrete burner being  installed by the A. R. Rogers Lumber Co. The cost of this structure  will be in the neighborhood of $8,000.  City Clerk Rosoman has greatly facilitated the handling of the city  business by providing his office in the  City Hall with many improved methods of handling the business and  simplifying proceedings.  We are in' receipt of a very handsome program arranged for the Sunday School convention -to be held at  Summerland, March 23-4. The event  promises to be of- more than usual  interest this year.  The old City Office is being remodeled preparatory for the millinery  store of Mrs. Fisher. It will be used  this summer as an up-to-date ice  cream parlor, where Slater's delicious  ice cream will be served.  What looks suspiciously like an ac-  qute attack   of   frigid   pedalitis has  in order to he poor in the Okanagan, you have to wa������������������te an awful lot of Time and Money.  II.    M.    M"  o:  A   I.    K   K   R  X  ONE   MAN'S POINT OF VIEW  2  VERY   business   is the shadow  of the man at its head.   It is  important   to    put one's personality into   the . thing being done  for personality is the thing back of  every success.    It is the unaccountable-thing that makes  one man  or  firm succeed   while    the neighbor or  competitor goes down.     I have never  been more struck  with the truth of  this than in the business life of M. J.  Henry,    the   Vancouver nurseryman.  In the years that Mr. Henry has been  in business in the coast metropolis,  he has won for himself and his nursery a distinct position, pre-eminently at the head   of   the list.   And he  has done so by injecting personality  into the business.     For this reason,  I think horticulturists will lose a big  lot when Mr. Henry quits the business.    He   has   never    had    a  "tree  man"  on the road, therefore he has  been 'in touch with his patrons all the  time,.and in this personal touch has  gained    their    confidence   by    having  learned   first-hand   their   needs, and  then making a point of providing the  thing asked for.     Mr. Henry did not  believe in putting men on the road,  for, he argued, they do not bring the  buyer into personal contact with the  house,  and impose upon  prospective  buyers by taking up their time talking for. an order.   He did not allow  agents to   impose    upon him or his  workmen,  and refused to send them  out to impose upon others and their  workmen.    I shall   never forget the  wording of a notice posted on the  door of the residence of M. J. Henry  ^h_ff7l"=vi"sited^th"e==nurs_ries^some  years ago. I quote the words from  memory, so they nvay not be exactly  right, but they will be near enough  correct "to give a touch with the man  as he is found at work. I found Mr.  Henry up to his ears in work; seeds,  trees, plants, flowers everywhere, and  orders to be filled coming in fast.  "I do not send agents out for me to.  bo'ther others, and I do not allow  other's agents to bother me," he  said, and later, as we strolled about  the greenhouses, and I finally took  my leave, he pointed to the notice on  the door. It read: "Wc haven't any  need of corn doctors, eye doctors, or  horse doctors. Our kidneys are all  right; our back isn't lame, and we  don't need any life insurance. If you  must see "our workmen, call after 6  o'clock. We are too busy to'be  talked to.now."  ooo  0 public entertainers who have  ever visited Enderby got so  close to the hearts of the music-lovers and gave such entire satisfaction as Robert Meikle and Frank  Lloyd on their recent visit to the  city. As a singer of the good old  Scotch, Meikle gets home first; his  equal has "never been heard here. He  puts heart and soul into it; he looks  it; he feels it���������������������������and he makes it contagious. He makes friends. Whether  on the stage or off,' whether singing  Annie Laurie or passing the stanes  down the ice to the button, he wicks  in and lies close to the button of  your affections. Lloyd is the fun  maker.    His singing will always be  H  remembered by those who heard it,  because he, too, makes you feel good  -with^yourself=-=and--the-world.=Why.  the first' thing Lloyd did when they  hit this office was make our Smiler  smile. And the harder Lloyd laughed  the heartier Smiler ��������������������������� smiled, until it  became very funny. Smiler is a long,  lank sack of bones put up like a dog  which we keep at our office to climb  over and dodge around. He isn't  much _to look at or 'to .handle, but  he has a heart as big and warm as  he is long, and he knows when to  smile. When Lloyd is around is one  of those times, and Smiler knew it���������������������������  ,'ust as the rest of us knew it. They  will be back again next year.  ooo  0MB children were playing in  tlie sand at the City Hall  steps on Monday morning. It  was delightfully warm and springlike  and everybody caught it. They made  mud pies, and used the first two  steps as a bake-oven. It was the  last day of grace, and water users  beseiged the office of the City Clerk  to save that 15c. A string of men  passed up and down those steps all  the while the children were engaged  in their pie-making. But never once  was a mud-pie disturbed or the two  steps taken from the little fellows.  You see, it was spring time; the  warm sunshine and twittering birds  mellowed the heart and made all the  world a cradle, and the men just  stretched a point and climbed carefully to the third step so.as not to  disturb the children or break the  crust of a. mud pie. Ah, yes; spring  is here !  /There is coming to bur city "of Enderby, Dr. J. F. Miller, "eye" specialist', who comes well recommended and  is endorsed by the best citizens of  our Province and neighboring cities  as a man of "worth and ability.

UNCLE EZRA SAYS.
"It is in the natu, uv tilings thet
ef you go out uv your way to  do
some one a favor you'll cither git
run over else fall into a ditch."
Soon after the rest oration a sleeveless ves t, whicli I i Up wise left the waist
open, was worn under the doublet.   It
was not a true waistcoat.   This style
of dress was brought from 1<'ranee by
Charles II.   From bPtieau. the fullness
of shirt exposed by the open vest "tbe
breecbes    displayed    their   expanded
width," with bunches of ribbon at the
waist and lace ruffles bPlow the knees.
The doublet  worn over the vest was
richly laced and embroidered.   So costly  was  this  mode of attire that the
king resolved 10 give th������ lead toward
a more economical and sober fashion,
and in the fulfillment of this design he
donned tbe uew garment, which I'epys
hailed with pleasure.
Such  were the circumstances which
| attended tho introduction ot the waist-
; eofii.   It came in the name of economy
and reform, but ere long it developed
into a.s expensive and decorative a garment as any which man has ever taken to him. nit.    (ifjiduaily it  was extended downward til! it almost reached
the knees.    It was made of the richest
materials,   and   the   outer   coat   was
shaped  to hang well open to display
Its uwigni!... nee.
Kxtravn .ant>e an . love of finery were
simply train.erred from one style to
another, and on the waistcoat was lavished all the embellishment which previously bad been bestowed ou tbe
breeches. Those (lowered and embroidered waistcoats ot sbepny sarin,
with laced linos, may certainly have
been less troublesome and fantastic
than the preceding fashion, but wli .u>
er the.v reduced the wearer's account
with his tailor is highly doubtful.   ''
The long Happed waistcoat remained
In favor many years. It was stilt worn
by uoblemeu and gentlemen wnen
George I. was _iug. in tbe fotlowmg
reign _ somewhat shorter waistcoat
was prevalent, and from this time the
flap began ro decrease iu iengib. Instead of reaching almost to the _r.ee it
came only halrway down tbe thigh.
As men's dress became more simplified toward the close ot the eighteeutb
century and pulling, lace and embroidery were abandoned tbe flap disappeared.���������Loudon Globe.
TIfE BANK OF OTTAWA.
Has Had a Prosperous Year.
The thirty-fifth Annual Report of
fche Bank of Ottawa directors shows
most  substantial  progress* during
tho  year  ending November    30th,
1909.    Though  the   earlier  part of
the year still showed the effects of
the financial depression    of    1908,
conditions have changed materially
during the last three or four months
and prospects  for 1909 are bright.
Tho* bank's  net profits  for    the
year were  $421,005.    After paying
dividends,   writing off $57,357 from
the- valuation'of bank premises and
furniture,  and  providing    for    the
officers' pension fund,  nearly $50,-
900 was    added    to    the    balance
brought forward from the previous
year,   making tho  balance   carried
forward to next year $455,919.
During fche year 5,000 shares of
new stock were issued at a premium
of 100 per cent., increasing the paid-
up captial from $3,000,000 to $3,-
297,550. As the rest fund was increased by a similar amount the
bank's capital and rest together
now total $6,595,100.
Thc increase of- 84,000,000 in, the
bank's      interest-bearing    deposits
during the year is a further indica-
| tion of the  growth  of, thc institu-
jtion's business    with    the  general
i public.
The total assets during thc year
have also increased very materially
���������from  833,524,891   to $3.,212.139.
Altogether the .Bank of Ottawa is
to be congratulated on a very satisfactory year's business.
BALLOON DANGERS.
The  enthusiasm   with which the
science of aerial navigation is now
studied    has    led,    among    other,
things, to more careful observation
of the effects of atmospheric electricity upon balloons and other airships.    The   recent experience    of
Lieutenant Grubcr with a balloon;
held by a long wire cable indicates
one of the dangers that are to bc
guarded against.   The cable having
been broken by a gust of wind, the
aeronaut found himself carried rapidly up into a storm-cloud.    Suddenly the balloon began to fall, and
Gruber saw that the envelope was
burning.    Fortunately  he   reached
the earth in safety.   Monsieur Bou-
langer, president of the "Aero-club
du Nerd," recently took three passengers on a log   flight,    during
which they found themselves.involved in  a storm-cloud.    As long as
the  rain  lasted   about  them  they
were  subjected  to electric  shocks,
and sparks played all over the balloon.

The Masculine Wig.
Civilization has to thank the French
revolution aud tho subsequent wars
for masculine emancipation from tbe
wig. it was partly the scarcity ot
flour and tbe war tax on hair powder
that LmoLsiied the powdered wig, but
partly also the leveling influence of
Jacobinism. "1 do not know the present generation by sight." wrote VVal-

CLEARING THE WAY
The farmer had the toothache,
and to save, a trip to town and a
dentist's fee he asked his man Jake
to pull the aching tooth
Jake led him to the barn, seated
him on a bench, and took from the
harness-room a pair of very large,
rusty pincers,
"Here goes," he said, and bracing himself extracted a huge tooth.
The farmer, clapi.!.d his hand to
his jaw and pointed reproaehfu.iy
t,.i the large white tooth in the
pincers.
"Why, Jake." he moaned,
"that's the wrong one."

SUPPLEMENT  (Bf ffinti.rbt) Prfss and ������������������fate's QUfillt  ;8|  -^  .i  *V i  _.l  _l  WHAT OUR ENDERBY POULTRYMEN ARE DOING  The poultrymen of Enderby "and vicinity are certainly to be congratulated  on the splendid progress made in the  past year and a half. It has meant a  great deal to" the District, and will  mean a great deal more if the citizens  of Enderby awaken to the importance  of the poultry industry and of holding  in Enderby the annual winter poultry  show.  c  Perhaps the greatest advance made  by the individual breeders is that of  the Hazelmere Poultry Farm,  owned by F. C. and R. Waddell. Past experience in fancy  breeding for OldCountry shows  no doubt had much to do  with the rapid progress made,  together with the fact that  the Hazelmere had ample  means at command to_bring  their strains up to the highest  point of perfection.  We have in the vicinity of  Enderby breeders of nearly all  of the best breeds of birds.  G. H. Smedley gives his at-  _tention_to.__31ack_Mino_ea3_as  leader, T. & W. Pound have  winning strains in Buff and  Black Orpingtons, Brahmas  and Rhode Island Reds; H.W.  Keith, Orpingtons; H. E.  Waby, Leghorns & Rocks, J. C.  English, Barred Rocks. There  are numerous breeders of  other types, who are just developing " the  business  to the  and beautiful head points." Their  shanks and feet are of richest yellow.  On the lawn no handsomer or more  graceful fowl was ever seen. At* the  leading exhibitions you will always  find the class one of the largest and  one around which the attraction centres. As a fancier's breed they command the best prices, and where only  occasional specimens sold for $50,  $75,    and   $100,  now such birds   are  of the better hotels. Their quick  maturing qualities again- commend  them, and for egg production they  have no equal. Not even the Leghorn,' the acknowledged egg machine,  can discount them, as the White  Wyandotte will be found an excellent  winter layer when the Leghorns are  taking their vacation. Fishel's are  specially noted for this excellent  quality.  Another advantage of the  White Wyandotte, they-tell  us, is its close-fitting comb.  A frosted comb means to  check egg production at once  with all single-comb varieties.  With the white Wyandotte  this seldom ever occurs even  in the coldest weather. All  in all, they believe there are  in the white Wyandottes more  good utilitarian qualities than  can be . found in any other  breed. They satisfy and  please, either the fancier or  the market poultryman, and  as^_"source^of^ihc6me^'will"  ipy-right  .  _. L 3 tjl������������������z> ������������������;  CoJumbuJ, 0.*~..-  Whita Wyandotte .'the Hazslinere'alea.IinK^variei.y,.  commercial stage. F. C. & R. Waddell's  favorite breeds are White and Partridge Wyandottes, White Holland turkeys and Toulouse geese. In their own  words, they tell why thoy favor these  breeds:  The White Wyandotte has been  known to the fancier since way back  in the eighties. They were always  .popular. They are direct decendants,  in fact, are sports from the Silver  L-tced variety, and they combine all  the good qualities of their original  ancestry with the added value of the  pure white plumage . They are preeminently the fancier's fowl; they  possess a form of graceful curves,   a  eagerly   sought,  for and such prices  will soon be common.  Of course the great mass of sales  will be of breeders and for utility  birds, but the hundred dollar bird is  no longer a novelty, and the skilled  breeder will seek out such specimens  to head his yards or win for him the  coveted prizes, for it is in the  winning, stamping the value of your  strains over others, that makes the  business for the fancier. For the  table no variety can be more popular, for their compact, well-rounded  broad, deep bodies and breast, yellow skin, meat of the finest texture,  make an ideal table fowl, and much  proud carriage, compact, neat bodies  sought for by the caterer or steward  give a larger per cent on the  investment than any variety  one can invest in. Other  poultrymen may have other  favorites but these are Hazelmere convictions.  The Partridge Wyandottes,  are the most beautitul in the    "    Wyandotte "family."  As a"  parti-colored bird what can be more  attractive than the Partridge male  with his brilliant red coloring on  hackle and saddle finely stripped in  black, his beautiful sheeny black  breast and tail, neat rose comb and  bright yellow legs, or the female  with her soft brownish-red colored  feathers delicately pencilled, with a  darker brown from throat to keel.  They havc as good utility qualities  as the White variety and in fact what  is said of the Whites may be also  stated to be true  of  the Partridge.  Hazelmere Poultry Farm has added  Fishel's best pen of this beautiful  and profitable breed of turkeys which OLD W0RLD_ ARMIES  Drafting Methods by Which Their  Strength Is Maintained.

The service Is frequently so hated  that all mauner of methods are adopted in order to avoid It.

In most European countries military  malingering lu oitter to avoid", o iii pul-  Bory military service bas reached tbo  stage of a fine art.' In fact, a formidable list of new crimes has been added  to tbe statutes as a result, and medical  men frequently have to suffer for tbetr  assistance in this particular kind of  fraud.  Thus some time ago a number ot  Cologne dot'tors were arrested upon a  charge ot having administered pills to  young*cou".iipt>. 'These pills consisted or drugs wiilch produced tbe symptoms of Ueait disease so effectively as  completely to deceive tiie military authorities, with the result that tbe con-  BC-rlpts were declared unfit for service.

As a result the military doctors  have made nu especial study of methods of detecting feigned deafness aud  to trap the tunning youth who acta  the part of a deaf man. . .  Another common practice In I .ance  Is to tamper with the eyesight, though  this frequently results It) permanent  lujuty For instance, short sight Is  produced by wearing powerful concave ginf.ses for a considerable time  desfiitp the risk of bringing about per.  tnammt blindness.

Dogs and Somersaults.  As there is more than one way ot  cooking a goose, so there is more than  one method of teaching a dog to thro w  somersaults. But the most practical  and thorough mnnner Is to fasten a  cord around the body of the animal  close to the fore legs, and two peup _  should bold the ends of tbe cord on  either side of the unfortunate dog. A  third party, armed with a stout rope,  takes a position Immediately in front  of tbe canine acrobat and with a measured and masterly stroke flogs the  floor at close quarters to tbe dog's nose.  At each stroke of the rope the dog  springs backward, and that movement  la the trainer's golden opportunity. Aa  the dog springs backward the rope  passing under its body is jerked upward, and. although tbe first few attempts may prove futile; tho somersault is acquired In course of time. Ad  intelligent dog soon sicke_s of this order of things and throws somersaults  Without the assistance of rope:i.  Why the Woman Locked Da__ters at  the Car Conductor.

Goldwin Smith Was Prototype of Professor  In  Disraeli's Lothair.  There arc few literary facts better  known than that Prof. Goldwin Smith  of Toronto University was tlie original of thc Oxford professor in Disraeli's "Lothair." Hc is .not thc only,  living person whom he sketched, and  the present Marchioness of 131 andford  is in tho same novel and also in  "Endvmion."  .'"['ess of thc D.Urborvilles," the  masterpiece of Thomas Hardy, has,  as one of its minor characters, an  English bishop. The brilliant Cuth-  " bcrt Clare, brother of Angel Clare,  who is at Cambridge, and afterwards  a professor, is none other than the  Right Rev. Handley Carr Glyn Motile,  Bishop of Durham, 'and it follows  that the Rev. Mr. Clare of the novel  was his father. He is, however, now  dead. ,  Tlie three curates of Charlotte  Bronte's "Shirley" arc, as everybody  admits, materpieccs of characteriza-  . tion, and perhaps that " is not to bo  ' wondered at when it is considered  that they were all drawn from the  life. Had this article been written  ������������������ few months ago Charlotte Bronte's  husband would have been included,  for he wits one of the curate band.  Nevertheless there is still another  left. Thc TVjv. James Bradley, now a  very old man and living in retirement at Richmond, was actually the  original of the Rev. David Sweeting  of  thc famous  novel.  "Tito-Child of tho. Jago," by Arthur  Morrison,  made  a  stir  when  it first  impaired,   because   the   conditions  of  =_=___(___ ________i tied���������������������������woro_ deemed Jim p_qsL  sihlc and overdrawn. But thc Rov.  Osborne Jay of Shored itch proved  that the picture was not loo highly  colored, and, as 'he is the Father  Sturt of the novel, he certainly ought  to know.  Rudvurd Kipling appears as tho  hero of one of his most popular books.  Thc great novelist and poet was educated at thc United Services College  at Westward Ho, in North Devon,  - -and that is the school so graphically  depicted in "Stalky and Co.' Ono of  the "Co." is a bov named Beetle who  wears "pi .-lamns," and the hoy is  Kipling himself.

Mrs.  Hodgson Burnett's son, now grown  to manhood, was the original of that  fascinating little figure which captur-  od the reading world fifteen years ago,  "Little Lord Fauntleroy."        .  There still lives at Ealing, in her  ninety-seventh year, the original of  "Little Dorrit."

Here  is one of Nature's beauty spots; ideal  for home-making   and the enjoyment  of all of thc best in life that makes  for the betterment of man.   We have  here conditions   which    are ideal for  flower growing, and especially for the  cultivation of Nature's most beauti-  - ful of flowers���������������������������the rose���������������������������and there is  no reason why   we should not make  this one thing    the   great attraction  which will make the name of Enderby  one to bc honored by every visitor to  the Okanagan.   If around every home  we had gardens of roses, brought to  the highest degree of perfection possible,    we   should   soon   sec    a path  beaten to Enderby from  every point  in the interior.    This one thought-  tins one   idea���������������������������carried to its highest  =and=-best7=._y.= __c=uiitir-ing.= _ndeavor-^of-  every home-maker, would soon bring  Enderby to thc top.   Roses in every  display window, roses in every home  sitting room, roses in every room in  our hotels, roses to meet every train  and to give liberally to evcry passenger,    roses,    roses,    everywhere���������������������������and  these roses   always   just a little bit  better .than.the roses grown anywhere  else.   While little is definitely known  of the origin of the rose as a family  in the domain    of   flora,    wc arc at  least certain that it was in cultivation and held   in    high esteem some  three thousand years ago, and at no  time in   the   world's   history lias it  ever been    without   its admirers.   It  has   been   known   as   the   Queen   of  Flowers    since    the    period  of early  Grecian greatness.   It is no less the  Queen of   Flowers   today.    We have  here in Enderby the ideal clay loam  soil   for   growing   the   most perfect  roses,  and   our   climatic    conditions  are all that could possibly be desired  to give the exquisite  color and fragrance.

'  A very curious astronomical phenomenon occurs in the heavens at a  certain time of the year which can be  witnessed ouly by standing in the parish churchyard ot Leek, in Stafiord-  shire, England. <���������������������������  From that position tbe top of a  mountain known as the Cloud tweaks  the line of sight and fully intercepts  your view of the setting of the sun.  This mountain Is six miles distant, as  ibo crow flies, from'the town of Leek  and owing to its peculiar formation  causes the sun when It has entered  that sign of the zodiac known as Oan-_  cer, which happens when we are about  halfway through the year, to produce  the strange effect of setting twice  daily.  The iirst time that it sets the town  sinks into darkness, and the inhabitants light up their bouses and shops  in the usual way. Presently dawn suffuses over--the town, clear daylight  follows, and artificial lights are put out.  At  the second  setting of the sun.  darkness sets in for good.   This phenomenon continues for some days.  The head and shoulders of the distant mountain intervene Just at the  juncture when the sun at'the first setting, drops behind the top or bead of  tbe mountain. There he bides for some  time and emerges again from behind  just below the bead and throws daylight out upon the locality once more,  when he again sinks behind the mountain's shoulders and finally sets behind  the horizon.���������������������������Stray Stories.

In the French army It is quite common tor youths to feign all manner'of  ills, deafness being the usual ailment  trusted to In order to escape the service. As a result the military doctors  have made au especial study of methods of detecting feigned deafness and  to trap the cunning youth who acta  the part of a deal' man.  Another common practice in France  is to tamper with the eyesight, though  this frequently results-in permanent  injury. For instance, short sight is  produced by/,. wearing powerful concave glasses for a considerable time  despite the risk of bringing about per.  ttaneht blindness. It is no uncom-  .nioh occurrence for men to commit suicide rather than submit to forced service in tho army.  - Jn eastern Europe most brutal methods are adopted by parents In.order  that their sons may be. able, to work  for them instead of serving in the  army." The boys are frequently ill  treat_d,''.and it is not'at all uncommon  even for their limbs to'be. broken or  their sight to be destroyed in order to  prevent any likelihood of their having  to become soldiers.

JOHN MOSER,  Per C. W. Little,  Mara, B.  C.  CANADA IN 1910  Mr. William Whyte, second vice-  president of the Canadian Pacific  Railway Company, gives an interesting estimate of crop conditions in  1910. The area under crop in Manitoba, he says, will not be largely increased during 1910, but in Saskatchewan tlie increase will amount to  20 per cent. Within a short time  Saskatchewan will produce more  wheat than any state in the United  States, and within a few years it  will produce more wheat than all  thc United States combined.  "In Winnipeg more building will bc  done in 1910 than in any previous  year in the history of the city. What  is to be done in the city in this regard is the keynote of what will' be  done in all parts of the Western provinces. The . Canadian Pacific has  completed a very large amount of  work during the year 1909, and there  will be no cessation in the activities  of the company in this v matter in  19LO. The list of extensions and improvements which are desired has  been prepared but it is impossible to  state specifically what will be done  until the matter lias been submitted  to the president.  "The investment of British and of  United States capital in these provinces continues very large, and there  will be no cessation of the flow in  1910. Any proposition from Western  Canada which has merit can secure  capital in Great Britain. It is essential that the project should have  merit, but if it has merit the capital  will he forthcoming.  "The immense sums of money paid  to the ** Western farmers during the  year 1909 must attract wide attention. From figures which have been  prepared with great care I have  learned that there were under crop  in the three Western provinces this  year 6,922,000 acres, from which there  were harvested 122,000,000 bushels of  wheat. The average price actually  received by the farmer for his wheat  is estimated at 87 cents. The actual  value of the crop to the farmer was  thus $106,445,000. In oats there were  sown :3,928,000 acres, producing 176-  000,000 bushels.  ��������������������������������������������������������������������������������� "The average price received by the  farmer for oats sold was 27 cents,  making thc value of the crop $9,-  309,000. Thc yeild of flax was small,  only 3,GOO,000 bushels, but the price  was high, $1.35 per qushcl���������������������������a total  value to the farmer of ?5,000,000.  The total value of the crops to the  farmers of the three prairie provinces was thus ?1G8,000,000.  "The shipments of livestock up to  thc month of December amount in,  'value to over $8,000,000 from the  three Western, provinces," and there  are-still 5,000 cattle in the country  ready for shipment."  British Columbia packing in contrast that ifavored the conquest of  the prairie market by the latter  fruit, ancl yet Ontario has not learned the lesson and continues to ship  out west windfalls and culls impossible to sell on the Toronto street  market. If Ontario were the only  sufferer in the * case, little noise  might be made, but the> western retail fruit merchant is also a loser,  and the customer must take what he  can get. Columbian, New Westminster.  DRASTIC MEASURES  DISHONEST APPLE PACKERS  Ontario apple packers are a disgrace. It is not the first time, but  they are in bad disgrace on this occasion ancl those who have taken  note of their impositions on the long  suilering public, by thc disgraceful  apple shipments to the coast this  fall for instance, will agree that the  head of the horticultural branch of  the Ontario Department of Agriculture, Mr. W. P. Hodgetts, has not  roasted the apple shippers of Ontario  any too severely when he describes  their methods as "cussed foolhardi-  ness." The gracie of apples may  have been poor in Ontario the past  season but poor as they may have  been there could be no justification  for the sort of apples shipped by the  long ancl expensive rail haul to the  Pacific Coast. The result has been  that another black eye has been given to Ontario apples out in the west  by such dishonest methods of packing. It was the yearly frauds by  Ontario packers and the care in the  In a North Dakota town the merchants have become tired of selling  goods on credit while their customers  or many of them, were sending their  cash away to a'catalogue house. After careful consideration they decided  to adopt radical means to enforce  cash payments. A man was sent.to  the railway station to make a list  each day of the names of those receiving- goods .from the catalogue  houses. A copy of this list was  placed in' each store and when one of  these customers attempted to purchase on time he was courteously refused. Again, any of such customers bringing, produce to town were  directed to ship it to thc catalogue  houses with which they dealt. The  customers finding they could no longer get credit at home, were thus  forced to keep their money at home  in order to purchase thc articles for  which it would not pay them to send  away.���������������������������Commercial.

We are in receipt of a letter from  T. Albert Moore, secretary of the  Lord's Day Alliance, asking us to  publish an 800-word article refuting  what he terms inaccurate information  contained in a paper of general circulation styled "The Dominion Sentinel." We have never had the pleasure of seeing the paper referred to,  and have no knowledge of the inaccurate information referred to, but if  the stuff put out by the Lord's Day  Alliance and which we are asked to  publish means anything, it means  that the Dominion Sentinel is the  organ of the Seventh Day Adventists  and is published and paid for by the  Seventh Day Adventists. The inaccuracy of the information contained  therein, so far as we can learn from  Mr. Moore's stilted reply thereto,  consists mainly of the charge made  by the Seventh Day Adventist writer  that the Lord's Day legislation is~fe-  ligious legislation. We do not see as  there is anything so very inaccurate  about such information. However,  there is this "about it: The Seventh  Day Adventists, few' as they are, are  earnest enough in their convictions  to publish and pay for a paper'devoted to espousing .their cause and  exposing what they believe to be an  injustice, "and so far as we are concerned they have that privilege.

Y-OBSB~RVANCB"  Here, we think, is about as good a  thing as Bruce, of the Saturday Sunset ever said:  "Sympathy will be felt for the  Lord's Day Alliance since Rev. W. M.  Rochester, its paid agent,' has told us  we are under a misapprehension regarding it. The general-inpression of  this Toronto organization in British  Columbia is that it is composed  chiefly of busy-bodies whose main object is to meddle in things which do  not concern them.  "Rev. W. M. Rochester, although  he would not admit such - a charge,  proved it out of1' his own lips. Hc  said the object of the Alliance was to  give the people back something they  had "lost." Rev. Rochester's idea of  "loss" is that we no longer, in this  province at least, have that conception of Sunday observance with  which the East is afflicted and which,  in the intolerant minds of the Lord's  Day Alliance is the nation's only salvation.  "My own'idea is that the people of  British Columbia instead of having  "lost" something have so far escaped from the pestiferous meddling  of the Lord's Day Alliance. If the  people of this province had "lost"  something they wanted, they' would  not be slow in hunting it up and demanding it.  "Rev.Rochester sa,ys what we have  "lost"   is    as   important' as Magna  Charta was to the people of England or as the dyke is to the Fraser  River farmers. I wonder what sort  of a bunch of dubs Rev. Rochester  thinks British Columbia people are.  Here we have been suffering all these  years from a loss equal to the foundation of our liberties; our lives have  been endangered, our property jeopardized and we never found it out till  Rev. Rochester came out from Toronto and told us about it ! Really  this is a terrible state of affairs���������������������������to  discover wc have been living in a  fool's paradise all these years simply  because we have not learned that ice  cream is a food and cigar is a drug  ���������������������������is a frightful shock to us. We have  been living on the brink of perdition  just because we refused to believe it  a sin. to go fishing on Sunday or  mountain climbing on the first day of  the week.  "Here we have been smoking cigars  going, out horseback riding, fishing,  yachting, aye, even whistling on the  Lord's Day,. and us all the' time living over a smoking hell ! It seems  to me Mr. Rochester might have  broken the awful news a little more  gently. To. remedy all this and,put  us solid upon the hills of safety, Rev  Rochester insists that we must enforce the Lord's Day Act, the instrument of torture provided by the Dominion Government for the use of the  mediaevalists to whom Rev. Rochester owes his job. "According to the  agent of this Amalgamated Society  of Meddlers and Shapers of Other  People's Destinies, unless British Columbia immediately enforces the blue  law which enables emissaries of the  above organization to hale men to  court for minding their .own .business  on Sunday something very awful is  likely .to happen us.  "Out here   in   enlightened    British  Columbia we value individual liberty  of action and freedom of conscience a  little higher, than they do in. the benighted   East,   where    they    permit  meddlers^- of������������������-the r Rochester type .to  hand but ��������������������������� readymade   consciences in  wholesale :lots. uniformity and rigidity guaranteed  .by, law.

His promise of holding up his  mistress'    hands   had   been    most  faithfully kept,  and,  without    any  disparagement to Janet, ftlrs. Kcn-  '  nccly felt that the loss of hcr former servant was in a great measure  made up-to her in thc kind negro,  who, as" the months went by and her  face grew  thinner each  day, purchased with his own money many a  little    delicacy,    which   -ho   hoped  would tempt her capricious appetite.     Maude, too, was a favorite  with John, both on account of her  color,   which ho    greatly 'admired,  and because,  poor,  ignorant creature that hc was, hc saw in her thc  germ of the noble girl', who, in thc  coming years, was to bear uncomplainingly  a   burden  of care  from  which the selfish Nellie would unhesitatingly turn away.  Toward Maude    the    doctor had  '-  ever manifested a feeling.of aversion, both because of her name, and  because she had compelled him to  yield .when his mind was fully made  up to do otherwise.   She had resolutely refused to bc called Matilda,  and as it was   necessary    for him  sometimes to address hcr, hc called  hcr first, "You girl," then "Mat,"  and  finally  arrived   at  "Maude,"  speaking it always .spitefully, as if  provoked that he had once in his  life .been ' conquered.      With the  management of her he. seldom "interfered, for that scratch had given  . him a timely lesson, and as he did  not like to bc unnecessarily "troubled, hc.left both Mauclc and Nellie to his wife,  who  suffered . the  latter to do nearly as she pleased,  and thus escaped many of the annoyances to .which stepmothers are  usually subject.  ���������������������������   -Although exceedingly selfish, Nellie was affectionate in her disposition, and when ftlaude did not cross  her path thc two were on thc best  of terms.   Disturbances there were,  noticing hcr husband, who, while  declaring there was no danger, still  deemed it necessary, in case anything should happen, to send for,  his sister, Mrs. Kelsey, who had  not visited him since his last marriage. She v/as-a proud, fashionable woman, who saw nothing attractive in the desolated old house,  and who had conceived an idea that  her brother's second wife was a  sort of nobody, whom hc had picked  uo among the New England hills.  But the news of hcr illness softened  her feelings in a measure, and.she  started for Laurel Hill, thinking  that if ftlatty died, she hoped a  certain dashing, brilliant woman,  called Maude Glendower, might go  there and govern the tyrannical  doctor, even as he had governed  others.  It was late in the afternoon when  she reached her brother's house,  from which Nellie came running  out to meet her, accompanied by  Maude. From the latter the lady  at first turned disdainfully away,  but ere long stole another look at  the brown-faced girl, about whom  there was something very attractive.  "Curtains as I live!" she cx-  cxcl aimed,- as she entered the parlor. "A piano, ancl marble table,  too.   "Where did these crime from?"  "They are ma's, and she's got a  baby up-stairs," answered Maude,  and the lady's hand rested for an  instant on the-little curly head, for  strange as it may seem, she  esteemed more highly a woman who  owned a piano and handsome table,  than she did one whose worldly possessions were more limited."  After making some changes in her  dress, she went up to .the sick-room  and as ftlatty was asleep, she had  ample,time to. examine her face,  and a Uso to inspect the room, which  showed in some one a refined and  delicate taste.'  "She must be more of a lady than  I supposed," she thought, and  when at last-, her sister-in-law  awoke, she greeted hcr kindly, and  during ber visit, which lasted nearly two weeks,   she exerted herself  however���������������������������-quarrels and fights, in the j t0 De agreeable, "succeeding .so far  latter of which,  Maude, being the  stronger of ihe two, always came  . oft-victor; but these did not last  long, and had her husband been  to her what he ought, Mrs. Kennedy's" life would not have been as  dreary as.it was.    He meant well  ' enough, perhaps, but- he did not  understand a woman, much less  how to treat her, and as the win-  lev months went by, ftfatty^s heart  ' would have "fainted within Her, but  ^fsT^^hope^vhich-w-hispcrcd^toJier-  "He will love me better when next  summer comes."  CHAPTER TV-  It is just oue year since thc summer morning when-Matty Kennedy  took upon herself a second time the  duties of. a wife, and now she lies  lira darkened-room, her face, .white  H3 the winter snow, and her breath  scarcely  perceptible  to  thc touch,  as it comes faintly from hcr .parted  lips,    in dignified 'silence    the  doctor sits by, counting hcr feeble  pulse, while an expression of pride,  and      almost    perfect     happiness  breaks over his face as hc glances  toward the cradle,   whieh Hannah  lias brought from  the garret, and  where now slept thc child born to  him that day.      His  oft  repeated  maxim that if the 'first were not a  boy the second   ought to'be, had  prevailed at last, and Dombey had  a son.'-  It was a puny thing, but  the father said it looked as Nellie  did when she first rested there, and  Nellie, holding back her breath and  pushing aside her curls, bent down  ,to sec the red-faced   infant.  "I was never as ugly as that,  and T don't love him a bit!" she  exclaimed, turning away in disgust;  while "Maude approached on. tiptoe.., and kneeling \yy the cradle  side, kissed the unconscious sleeper, whisoerjing as she did so, "I love  you, poor _iiQo brother."  Darling Maude-.Messed Maude���������������������������  in all your after life, yon. proved  the truth of those ' low spoken  words,'"I. love you, poor littlo brother."  For many uu-ys did Mrs. Kennedy  that ftlatty parted from her at last  withNgenuine regret.  "Poor thing���������������������������she'll never see another winter," was ftlrs. Kelsey's  mental comment, as she bade, the  invalid good-bye, but in this she-  was .'mistaken, for with the falling  of the leaf ftlatty began to improve,  and though she never fully regained  her health, "she was able again to  be about the house, doing far more  than she ought to have done, but  me-ver-=utlering=a__-rd.oLcomplaint,  however heavy was the burden imposed upon her.  With ftlaude and hcr baby, who  hover between life am:  'askina   for hcr  baby,  :1 death, never  bore the name of Louis, she found  her greatest combort. Hc was a  sweet, playful child, and sure  never before was father so foolishly proud of his son, as was Dr.  Dr. Kennedy of his. For hours  would he-sit_.watt.hing him while hc  slept, and building castles of thc  future, when "Louis Kennedy,  only son of Dr. Kennedy," should  be honored among men. Toward thc  mother, too, who had bore him  such a prodigy, hc became a little  more indulgent, occasionally suffering her wishes to prevail over his  maxims, and ou three several occasions giving hcr a dollar to spend  as she pleased. Surely such generosity did not deserve so severe  a punishment- as was in store for  the pvoud father.  Louis had a most beautiful face,  and in his soft, brown eyes there  was a "look like the angels," as  Maude once said to hcr mother, who  seldom spoke of him without a sigh,  for on her mind a terrible fear was  fastening itself. Although mentally as forward as other children,  Louis's body did not keep pace with  the. growth of his intellect, and  when he was two years of age, he  could not bear his weight upon his  feet, but in creeping dragged his  limbs slowly, as if in them there  was no life���������������������������no strength.  "Ma,  why    don't Louis  walk?"  asked Maude, one evening when she  saw how long it took him to cross  the room.  "Loui' tan't walk," answered the  Kennedy's eyes, for, availing her-  self..pf her husband's absence, she  had that morning consulted another  physician, who, after carefully examining Louis's body, had whispered in thc poor woman's car that  which made every nerve quiver  with pain, while at the same time  it made dearer a thousand-fold hcr  baby-boy; for a mother's pity increases a mother's love.  "Say, ma, what is iti" persisted  Maude.    "Will Louis-ever walk 1"  "Loui'11-never walk," answered  the lillle fellow, shaking his brown  curls, and tearing in twain a picture-book Avhich his father had  bought him the day before.  "Maude," said -Mrs.. Kennedy,  drawing her   daughter to hcr side,  "1 must tell somebody or my heart  will burst," and1' laying her head  upon thc table, she wept aloud.  "Don't ��������������������������� try ma, Loui' good,"  lisped.the infant on the floor, while  ftlrs. Kennedy, drying at last her  tears, told to'the wondering ftlaude  that Louis was not like other children���������������������������that he would probably never  have the use of his feet���������������������������that a  bunch was growing on his back���������������������������  and he in time would be"���������������������������she could  not say deformed, and so she said  at last,   "he'll  bc forever  lame."  Poor little Maude! How all her  childish dreams were blasted! She  had anticipated so much pleasure  in guiding hcr brother's tottering  footsteps, in leading him to school,  to church, and-everywhere, ancl she  could not have him lame.  . "Oh, Louis,-Louis!" slie cried,'"  winding hcr arms around his neck,  as if she would thus avert the  dreaded evil.  Very .wonderfully thc child looked  up into her eyes, and raising his  waxen hand, hc wiped her- tears  away, saying, as he did so, "Loui  love ftlaude." ^  V. ith a choking sob Maude kissed  h-~r baby brother, then going back  to her mother, whose head still lay  upon the table, she whispered, "\JUj  will love-poor Louis all the more,  you and I."' *  Blessed Maude, wc say again, for  these were no kilo words, and the  clinging, -tender love " with ��������������������������� which  she cherished her unfortunate brother, ought -to have shamed . the  heartless man", who,- when he heard  of Iiis affliction, refused to be comforted, and almost cursed -the day  when his only" son was born'.. He  had been absent for a week or more  and-with the exception of the time  when he first knew he had a son,  he did not remember of having experienced a moment of greater happiness than that in which he reached his home, where dwelt his boy  I���������������������������his pride���������������������������his idol. Louis was  not in the room, and on the mother's face there was an expression of sadness, which at once awakened the father's fears lest, something had befallen his child.

Remember that you are- dealing  with- a living machine and that  therefore kind and quiet treatment  will produce more milk with less  trouble  than  harsh methods.  The machine can only work at  its best when properly handled.

R. Gilbert.  THE VALUE OF STRAW.  One of thc features of thc landscape which is sure to attract the  attention of the traveller through  the West, is the large straw stacks.  Oi perhaps there is to be seen only  the smouldering remains of one :of  these stacks, and at prico the  thrifty,;, saving traveller from the  East is sure to enquire if the straw  does not contain sufficient value to  warrant its use. /'���������������������������  The American Farm World has  this to say about the "Manuriel  value of straw" : "Straw contains  enough fertilizer a ton to, cost: several dollars if bought in aVcommcr-  cial fertilizer.' While the fertilizer  elements are not so'available: as  those found in the commercial article, yet the straw furnishes humus to the soil, which is an advantage  that the commercial fertilizer does  not possess."  The author goes on to show the  composition of wheat straw and  ca>.oulate its value at the regular  rate charged for commercial fertilizers and demonstrates that it con-  FARM NOTES.  The calendar upon the wall.

Most farmers buy them mixed,  ready made. Such are the easy fertilizers. They are quite generally  bought without regard to their character or their fitness. The name  and���������������������������above everything else ��������������������������� the  price arc the controlling factors in  the purchase. Close buying is all  right, but it seldom happens in any  trade that the cheapest is the best,  though it almost always happens  io the fertilizer trade that the best  is thc. cheapest.

MAR VELS OF Bill. UTENESS.  Microscopic Writing��������������������������� Ship Hidden  Under Fly's Wing.  There   is  on  exhibition    in    the.  Army Medical'Museum at W .shing-  ton a specimen of microscopic writ- .  ing on glass.    This.writing consists  of the words of the Lord's-Prayer,  and  occupies  a  rectangular "space  measuring   1.294- by 1.44_    of   ah  inch, or. an. area of 1.129654 of    a.  square inch.

Such a- statement staggers the imagination, but the figures are easily  verified and are certainly correct.  Along this same line of almost  incredible minuteness is the story  of one ftlark Scallo't" a blacksmith,  who in 1578, in the twentieth year  of Queen Elizabeth's reign, made a  lock consisting of eighteen pieces of  steel, ir.on and brass, "with a hollow  key to it,. that altogether weighed  but one grain of gold.

The Nechaco Valley is a stretch of  country about forty miles wide and  extending from Francois lake to Fort  George, a distance of about 150 miles  and is probably the largest area of  arable land in British Columbia, requiring   neither irrigating or dyking.  Through the centre of this valley  lies the route of the Grand Trunk  Pacific railway, which is under agreement with the government to he completed in 1911. Fraser lake in the  Nechaco Valley will be 380 miles from  Prince Rupert, the Pacific coast terminus of this road.  The old Cariboo gold mining country   lies   from 150 to 200 miles away  of the scarcity of the large game.  The climate is far milder than the  country east of the Rockies, as the  chinook winds from the Pacific modify the winters, ancl after a severe  cold snap last winter (1908-9) in  the early part of January,, it was  raining in late January. The climate  of summer is not so satisfactory as  frosts sometimes work havoc with  the potatoes, but it is found that a  large clearing usually brings exemption from this evil, ancl in some parts  the country is free from these.  A quarter section of this land  can  be obtained from the government for  one dollar per acre, the settler to reside   on   it   six months in each year  for two years, then, after paying the  purchase inpney and. thc cost'!of.survey he is entitled to a Crown grant,  or the land may be purchased from  the government at from   $2.50   to?5  per acre according to the classification   of   the    surveyors.       As many  thousands of acres of this land is in  the  hands of land  companies and syndicates  who  are  selling it  for from  $16 to  $30 an acre,  it behooves the  man pf moderate   means   who wants  land in this valley to buy now from  the government instead of buying the  same stuff .second hand.  Those who know the Nechaco Valley beiicve it is to be the centre of  a great, if not the greatest, farming  dairying and hardy fruit belt in British Columbia, and the settlers already there are glad to help by any  means those who want to come before thc railway is completed.

C, this 1st day of February, 1910.  HESSIE BELL. Administratrix,  P. II. MUUPHY.  Every time you say a good word  for your town, you say one for yourself,  high  freight rates.   ^  To the north and northeast lie the  Omineca ancl Ingineca mining districts, where the prospects show valuable deposits of gold, copper and  galena, that will develop into good  mines as' soon as there is transportation.  The Bulkley Valley, on the northwest, where thc land was taken up  many years ago, is developing into a  fine farming country, and though but  a small valley, the vast deposits of  coal and copper mines of the Telkwa  make it a wealthy district.  The soil through the Bulkley ancl  Endako valleys is a black loam, producing a luxurious growth of grasses  ancl weeds amongst the poplar and  pine trees.  Leaving Fraser lake aud going east-  j ward on  the    south    side of the Ne-  ! chaco river one passes through some  fine land,  prairies of twenty to fifty  acres    with   small   poplar    between.  Tiiis land  for four or five miles was  purchased in large blocks years ago.  For    some   miles  further the soil is  much the same   but   almost all tim-  ^bered���������������������������with^small^poplarsr^It^con^  sists   of   two   or three    inches of a  black    vegetable    mould   on   a -white  ' silt.   This land  has been largely taken up by pre-emptors, and what has  \ been missed is hard to find.  Continuing eastward twenty miles  , from Fraser lake one is in the heart  of the valley. All the country lying  around thc lakes���������������������������Tachic, Noolki,  and Tinsgut���������������������������and stretching northward five to ten miles to the river,  is a white silt with three to six  inches of vegetable surface.  The tin.,, er on this section is mostly poplar from two to eighteen inches  i in diameter, with willows and spruce  ! in   the    bottoms, : interspersed    with  ; prairies of from  ten  to one hundred  lucres in extent.   Around Clucul_ lake  | still farther cast, most of the soil is  !a   brown  loam   which   appears  to bc  better  suited  to  fruit  growing  than  the   heavy   white   silt of the    upper  valley.  Gray, ing is good all through the  valley, pea vine, vetches and wild  grasses being abundant in much of  thc timbered land. Splendid crops of  oats have been taken of! the small  acreage now under cultivation, and  the vegetables grown by the Indians  are not only matured but are of the  finest quality.  Ducks, fish and geese abound in all  the streams and lakes, but large  game is somewhat scarce. Grouse are  abundant and deer ancl bear arc  found often enough to make hunting  interesting, but thc Indians complain  to   facilitate  railroad.  the   work on the new  M'BRIDE'S   RAILWAY POLICY  The railway legislation of the Government, involving the construction  of the Canadian Northern from Yel-  lowhead pass to Vancouver via the  North Thompson and Fraser Valleys,  and the building of a line of railway  ferry service from English Bluff,  south of the mouth of the Fraser  river, ancl a harbor lying in the vicinity of Victoria.  There is a clause in the agreement  which compels the railway company  to employ only white labor on the  construction.  The company agrees to start construction work not later than July,  '1st, 1910, at or near New Westminster, and at or near Victoria, and  prosecute a certain amount of work  each year until completion of both  lines on or before July 1, 1914.

In the bill  brought down, Premier McBride has-  more than filled every .promise made  to the people in the recent campaign.  It is provided in the agreement the  legislature is asked to. endorse, that  the. Province shall have control of  both passenger and freight rates to  be charged by the road. The government agrees to guarantee the  bonds of the road to the extent of  $35,00.0.. per __mile.___Fiv_e_ hundred .miles.  of the road will be on the mainland,  and 100 miles on Vancouver Island.  , The company will operate a car  it might bc put to in carrying out  the terms of the agreement.  Terminals are to be provided at  Vancouver and Victoria.  The road is to bc exempt from taxation till July 1, 1924.  The bill to ratify the agreement between the government and the Kettle  River Valley railway company was  introduced at the same time. It provides for thc bonusing of the road to  thc extent of $5,000 per mile, for construction from Penticton to Merritt.  Construction is to begin within four  months from the time of ratification  of the agreement, and the work must  be finished within four years. The  company is called upon to build, besides the 150 miles of line for which  assistance is granted, a line of railway from Grand Forks up the north  fork of the Kettle river not less than  30 miles; a line from Midway to Penticton. These lines must also be  started and finished on the same  terms as apply to the line from Penticton to Merritt. .
