Mr. Burbridge is a  master baker, and it is his intention  to establish a modern bakery in ..Enderby. He will be here to start the  business this month. He will run a  candy store and refresshment room in  connection, and will do all kinds of  fancy baking.  Quietly during the past week, Manager Moffet, of the Columbia Flouring Mills Co., has had removed from  the "company's property one of the  landmarks of Enderby.' The residence  COURT OF REVISION  After a rest   of   two    months, the J.so J. nS used by the managers of the  flouring mills is being torn down and  carried away.

Hall promises to be unusually enjoyable, and the attendance  large:  Enderby witnesses in the Dake-  Belmont case have received notice  that the trial will come off in Kara-  loops on the 10th inst.  Plant Sale* on Wednesday, May lltl)  by the Willing Workers of St. George  church. Ice cream and tea will be  served afternoon and evening.  All members of the Tennis Club  last year have been enrolled as members this year, and the secretary is  desirous of hearing from them.  It is expected that there will be  a large gathering of school children  at_Mara.onL_June_30th, _when_the good.  people of that thrifty settlement will  give a picnic for all and sundry.  Arrangements for the sub-division  of the Flewwelling acreage peopcrty  adjoining town, are being completed,  and it is hoped to have the property  on the market in a few days in one-  acre blocks.  -The moving- of the bandstand to  the west of the City Hall has made a  vast improvement, and with even the  little work tliat has now been put on  the grounds the whole corner, of thc  street has been lifted in value.  Thc lumber mill started the 12-hour  shift this week, running from 7 to 9  four nights a week. Everything  about the mill is running as smoothly as clock work, and the output is  exceeding that of any previous season.  A Dutch entertainment in aid of  St. George's Guild, is in the course  of preparation for May 17th. Mrs.  G. Neve has charge of the arrangements. It will be given in the  Parish Hall, and will consist of  everything Dutch that will give  pleasure to those attending.  At the meeting of the Celebration  Committee last Thursday evening,  the sub-committees were not able to  report a definite program, but it is  anticipated that at the meeting of  the committees this evening negotiations with, outside teams will have  progressed far enough to. enable the  principal, events to be advertised.  The road question which has disturbed family relations in the neighborhood of Fortune Meadows for  many moons, has finally been settled  and the road will soon be built giving  a direct road this way through the  property recently purchased by Mr.  DeHart. The road will pass close to  the Hassard' home, and will strike  the present road near the corner  where the road turns in to the Fortune home. Mr. DeHart readily entered actively into ' the negotiations  when he took hold, and all differences  quickly- disappeared. It is now proposed to continue the road straight  t"o^Enderbyr"alonf=the==railwfiy'tfa"ck7  through" the Indian reserve, thus  cutting out the awkward hill rear  tlie Fortune crossing, and reducing  the distance from this point to Enderby fully one-half a mile. It is  pointed out that if this were done,  it would be possible for the railway  company to build freight spurs near  the .lumber . yard, for-the loading of  cars by the farmers.

A very interesting meeting of the  Enderby Board of Trade was held in  the office of Jas. Mowat, last Friday  evening. There were present: Messrs.  Taylor, Keith, Murphy, Walker, Peel,  Barnes, Mowat, Williams, Rosoman  and Harvey.  Mr. Taylor reported the great success of the meeting of the Associated  Boards at Kelowna, some weeks ago.  Mr. Barnes reported that he had,  in company with Mr. Burnyaet, the  Government surveyor,.' visited again  the proposed site of the Trinity Valley bridge, and the report of the surveyor as to measurements, etc., substantiated in every particular his report made to the Board at its last  meeting.  Mr. Walker reported that" he had  complied with the request of the  Board and had sent to, the Westward  Ho! magazine an article on the district, together with suitable cuts, for  publication in the May number.  The following resolution was moved  by Mr. Rosoman, seconded by Mr.  Barnes: ' '   -   ' ���������������������������"  Wnereas, the urgent need of a*  bridge and road to afford.com^iuni-.  cation between Trinity Valley and  the Mabel'Lake Valley"has,repeatedly  been brought to the attention of the  Government, and  Whereas, the Government has recognized the urgency of this.need "and  promised to construct such bridge  and road, and  Whereas, a large number of new  settlers have recently taken up land  in the vicinity; now; therefore, the  Enderby Board of Trade, in general  meeting assembled, has  Resolved, that the Government be  urgently requested to proceed with  the construction of the said bridge  and road during the present year  without fail.-  Carried    unanimously, and the sec-  xetany_,was^=-instructed-=to^for\vard-=a-  copy of the resolution to the proper  authorities.

REVISION OF VOTER'S  LIST  The result of the Court of Revision of the Voter's List, held at Vernon last week, tells a story that  will surprise many. _ There were on  the list as revised last November,  4,024. From this list a total of 903  names have been removed, 953 at the  Court of Revision, and 10 at thc request in writing of the voter, leaving  3,061 on the old list. To this were  added 127 new applications received  since last November, making a total  now on the list of 3,188 names. It  will be seen from this how badly in  need of cleansing our voter's list has  been. A drop of 836 names shows  conclusively that the voter's list has  been carrying a great deal of dead  material, and we are no.t quite so  numerous in population as we havc  thought.  GRINDROD BRIDGE  Up to the present, work on the  Grindrod bridge has moved slowly,  owing to Mr. Barnes inability to get  the donkey-engine"on the ground. It  was placed in position last week,  however, and this week the pile:driv-  ing is proceeding. The river: has  come up rapidly the past ten days,  and the strong current is causing  some delay in the handling of the  floats. e Vere  9  OR, THE NEW MISTRESS AT  LAUREL HILL.  -A .i.^ i_._n-v^  (/HAl'T....

In a. sin to of great perplexity  Maude returned to the house, a.nd  seeking out Iter brother, the'only  poison io whom she could go for  counsel, she. told him of the offer  she had received, and asked him  what hc thought. .In most respects  Louis was far older than his vears,  would  marry    hcr,    anyway,"   he  I said,   "live  thousand    dollars   was  | enough ;'; and donning his hat, he  : started   at once  for  the   doctor's.  Maude had returned to the house,  ancl  was  sitting with  hcr brother,  when thc young man was announced.      Wholly unmindful  of  Louis's  presence, hc began at once by asking "if she esteemed him so lightly,  as   t-o  believe     that     money could  make any  difference with   liim.'"'  -"It influences some, men,''' answered Alaude.

But Maude felt    that    she nm;.  havc time for sober, serious roller.  ifc wouldn't be a bit improper for a  woman as old as A.mi, Kelsey to  go over ancl see how Mr'.' l)c Yerc  was, particularly as by this means  she might find out why he had been  so long with Maude."

If you doubt the' quality of your  daintily perfumed 10 cent toilet  soaps, or iE you havc been trying  to get along with the emerald and  opal tinted sample bargain kind  that look nicer than they feci, why  don't you try and spend an hour  or two, lot us say once in three  months, in preparing your own  toilet 'soaps? Wc all have heard  that in pioneer days when the  nearest store._was often as far off  as the poles, as far as ability to  get there was concerned, people  made their own laundry and toilet  soaps. Of course, grandmother did  a good many things that have almost become a lost art to us, and  most of us will admit that a revival  of certain ones is not only interesting, but in some cases distinctly economical/  The making of. hard soap or  laundry soap, which must bc done  in- large quantities and requires a  big healing and boiling apparatus,  may not interest the city housewife,  but- face soap being made with olive  oil and caustic soda instead of  scrap fat and potash as a basis, and  which may be stirred up and cooked in an ordinary stew kettle, affords pleasant experiments  The process and the ratio of ingredients will bc exactly like that  of'hard laundry soap, which you are  sure to find described minutely in  your household recipe books. But  there is a shorter and quicker way  'of making finely scented toilet soaps  and which method is also in use in  most factories . Buy four pounds  of the best guaranteed pure un-  colored castile soap, which is  made with- olive or cocoanut oil  instead of grease. Cut this into  thin shavings and boil in enough  water until thoroughly liquified.  When cooled down to about 30 degrees Fahrenheit stir in two ounces  of the oil of bitter almonds ,and  one-quarter pint of rose watcr,  and pour into*.a_ square porcelain  or. graham pari, after it has bubbled for about ten minutes longer.  Unless you want fancy molds cut  into ' regular squares about two  inches thick.' '     .  This soap would bc equal in qua--  Iity to the kind for which you pay  from 25 to"50 cents a bar. You  would have from twelve to fifteen  ordinary sized, bars, and counting  the cost of the original castile soap  and thc ingredients your saving  would be .about $1 or $2, according to the kind of soap you ordinarily buy .  Transparent or glycerin soaps are  made by dissolving common hard  white soap in alcohol and allowing  the moisture to evaporate. The  alcohol partly neutralizes the stringency of the lye. An ounce of pure  glycerin to a pound of soap is the  usual measure and this' must bc  poured into the mixture as soon  as thc action of the alcohol ceases.  If i>, refuses to become hard through  %^pOT_rtitfn=iirmlist^b_^bToughtrta  a boil and tested in cold watcr until  sufficient hardness results. Camphor soap may -be made in the  same way by substituting oil of  rosemary, witch hazel and camphor for glycerin.  FISH DISHES.

Pour in thc fish  liquor, one gill of milk, and one  gill of cream; thoroughly mix until it comes to a boil, then boil five  minutes.

Add this lo the milk  until it i.s the consistency of custard. Season with a. dash of cayenne and salt to taste. Put a layer of the fish in a baking dish, cross  with a layer of sauce, then a layer  of iish, until the dish is filled.

Camille Flammarion, the eminent French scientist, writes the  European edition of The New York  Herald, giving . some interesting  facts regarding Halley's comet,  which is approaching the earth at  tho rate of 115,000 miles an hour.  On April 19, it will arrive at its  greatest proximity to the sun, and  t month later, on May 19, at 2  /clock in the morning, Paris time,  I will pass directly between the  earth and the sun. The Pacific  Ocean, Asia and Australia will be  in full daylight at the time. The  nucleus of the comet at that time  will be 15,000,000 miles distant from  tbe earth, and as the tail of the  comet has a length of more than  _{<7OO_700O"mil.STnlTwilIt*~e aclftxrour  giobe and beyond. The result will  bo that for several hours the earth  will bc immersed in thc great gaseous caudal appendage.  Halley's comet, says M. Flammarion, is not a big comet like those  of 1811, 1353, 1861 and 1382, for instance. It is a medium sized comet But its former appearances  show that it is extremely variable.-  In M5G it stupefied all beholders.  In 1GS2 there was nothing extraordinary about it, especially as it arrived "after tho prodigious comet of  1GS0. In 1759 and 1835 it scarcely  impressed anybody but thc astronomers.  Wc can as yet affirm nothing as  to its extent Ihis time nor as to its  chemical composition. What is  most probable is that our terrestrial globe will traverse this gaseous tail as a cannon ball traverses  a light fog, this tail, being, so to  speak, immaterial, especially at  such a distance from thc head.  Perhaps there will bc noticed interesting electric and magnetic  phenomena, manifestations of polar  aurora, storms of a new kind, a  shower . of shooting stars, ethereal  glinuncrings in the upper regions of  th:* atmosphere, while thc observers on tho other side of the globe  study tho passage of the nucleus  before tho  solar disc.  It is probable, however, that the  elements in tho comet's tail will  be so rarefied that, though living  for a short time right inside it, thc  inhabitants of thc earth will be unable  to discern any difference.  HINTS FOR MOTHERS.  Wash children's heads in a lather  of pure soap once a week, if you  wish the hair to grow well.  Excitable children should have a  thin, dark curtain to their window.  They need as much air is possible,  but not light.  Porridge is good in cold weather,  but to be avoided in warm. Many  children who have irritable skins  cannot eat it at all.  School-children, whose petticoats  are short or who wear knickerbockers, should be provided with mackintoshes and gaiters. The latter  are most necessary.  A simple aperient for children is  made of senna pods. Steep two or  three in half a teacupful of cold  water for twelve hours, and drink  the liquid at bed-time.  Don't nurse baby. If _you accustom baby to be in the'cot, or  on the floor on a pillow, he will  not want to be nursed. Firmness  at the beginning will save much  trouble later.  To render a child's clothes incombustible soak them in the following-  solution : Mix one part of sulphate  of ammonia with two parts of lime.  This preparation will render the  fabrics absolutely non-inflammable.  Eating between . meals ruins a  child',8 digestion. ��������������������������� If he has biscuits, etc., at odd moments it is  impossible for him to eat his proper food at .the regular times.  For chafed skins nothing is better than the best Fuller's earth.  If a child has a delicate skin, always use it after washing.  Baby's bare feet are very pretty,  but if you value his health, you will  put on little woollen socks. His  little feet should always be kept  warm.  A delicate   baby    can    often  be  made perfectly strong by living in  thc open air.   It need not be moved  about all tho time.   Stand thc per-1  ambulator  in   a sheltered  corner,  A DOSE OF  _&l  I1  ".atwsj't.wTO.i __ ������������������������������������is~#)sws  and let baby sleep there, even when  it is cold.   He may have a hot hot-'  tic and plenty of wraps, and should  wear gloves, but given all this h������������������  will do far better thus than in  ���������������������������������������������  warm room.

Special in Suitings to Order  In order to further introduce the  famous "Hobbcrlin" made to order  clothes, we havc arranged with this  big Tailoring House to offer Nos. 581,  582,  583,  584,   589   and 593 at $15.00  !    Bill No. 209, known as "An Act to  | Amend    the     Canadian     Temperance  'Act," was   introduced    in the House  on April   15th.   The    purpose of the  bill is to makc the Act applicable to  British    Columbia.       Thc    Canadian  , Temperance Act is similar to what is  ! generally known   us    the  Scott Act,  | and by this   amending   Act just put  ' through is   made   to   apply in every  ! county   into    which    the province of  British  Columbia is divided,  and  includes evcry town,  township,  village  land other   division   or    municipality  ! except a city municipality within the  'territorial limits of such county; and  I "city  municipality"   means  any  city  ���������������������������municipality    or   city   as defined by  the    "Municipal   Glauses   Act,"   and  amending acts.

Interviewed,  he said,   ''Your  j tariff alone will be one of the factors  ;in making   this    country    great.   By  ; putting a tax on the manufactures of  ! other lands you induce foreign manu-  I facturers to come here and establish  factories.   Fifty per cent, of the cost  of all manufactured articles consists  of wages.   Plenty of money will thus  be in circulation; there will be.lots of  work,  and the surplus goods will be  marketed in other countries.     There  are two things that work together to  make   a   country    great���������������������������capital and  .population.

PRAISE FOR OUR DAIRYMEN  A Victoria despatch states that R.  W. Hodson, provincial live stock  commissioner, who has but recently  returned from a tour of the British  Columbia mainland and interior districts in connection with the dairy  farm competition in which all dairymen of British Columbia are so deeply interested, speaks with particular  appreciation of thc very rapid strides  that have been made in the Okanagan in the development of the dairying industry along the most modern  and progressive lines. The dairymen  of that district are not only greatly  improving the quality of their stock  and seeing to it that their stabling,  food, water, etc., are all that could  be desired, but they are establishing  the latest" facilities in plant, aereat-  ing all milk offered for sale, dispensing the same in sanitary bottles,  and generally proving themselves entirely up-to-date���������������������������very far in advance  ���������������������������says Mr. Hodson��������������������������� of the dairymen  of the Victoria and Vancouver districts.

Tlie City Council are again  being petitioned by these , property  owners, who, apparently, are determined to havc one or more of these  gazetted city streets opened up.  It cannot be said that this is a new  question that the City Council is  confronted with.

They ceased to be pri-  an approach on Sicamous street to a ivate property   the   moment the city  own streets; which were already  registered in this addition.

That the problem .presents difficulties, there is no doubt, but these difficulties must be met and overcome,  for this important property must be  made accessible to the ratepayers  who have been paying taxes on property situated on . these gazetted  streets, and   wish    to build thereon.  Last'year when it was discovered  that it would be impossible to climb  the hill by the Gardom residence, an  effort was made to get an opening  skirting the hill, at the foot "of the  Sutcliffe home and back of the bank  property. A survey" was made by Mr.  Lawes, and a road at much less than  10 per cent, was .run from High street  to the top of the ridge, along which  Mr. Lawes proposed . to run a trunk  road whicli would open up all of this |  addition, and   add  extended    its   limits   to   take in the  addition.  The city, by tire foregoing resolution, having reconfirmed the streets  in Map 188, already gazetted, Mr.  Lawes "continued to dispose of lots in  the addition on the clear understanding that these roads and streets were  duly and properly registered and  owned by the city. The frequency of  the petitions presente'd to the Council  by these property owners', would indicate that these ratepayers are going to insist upon having access to  their property.'

Johnstone  Contractor and Builder, Enderby  Having added a cement brick machine to my cement plant,' I am now  prepared to enter into contract for  all kinds, of cement work. Portland  cement, plaster and lime kept in  stock.  in the Valley. When the matter was  first discussed by the Council it met  with great favor,, and the mayor and  all the.councilmen then attending the  meetings .expressed themselves as  willing and anxious to push "the road  through so as- to give an opening to  the property, always' provided that a  10 per cent, grade -could "be found.  When the survey made by-Mr. G.  L. Williams was finished, showing a  road was possible " at' less than this  grade, it was presented to the Council, accompanied by a-petition asking  that the; road-'be opened.'"The'newr  road skirted the hill back of the bank  property 'and crossed "the property  owned by Aid. Evans.- Aid. Evans  refused to allow the' road to pass  through his property. ��������������������������� The estimated  cost of the" road was $500: In presenting the petition from the property owners asking for" the road, Mr.  Lawes stated that the only way out  of the "difficulty was.for. tlie city to  expropriate a road across the Evans'  property, since he (Mr.- L__#es) had  been unable to get Mr. Evans to'con-  sent to an exchange of property or  meet the case in any..-way.  Mr. Lawes offered'tho-city, if they  ���������������������������would do this, that, with the city's  consent he would (1) Give the city  free right of way from High street to  .point=-of=entrancc^oi_=the-Evans!=-pro-if  perty. (2) That he would withdraw-  all roads and streets in the Lawes'  addition and lay out the property on  a new plan. (3) That he would gazette a public road free from the  point where the new road .would  leave thc Evans' property up to and  along the section line to Mr. Barnes'  boundary. - He thus offered to become  responsible for the making of all  roads on this property except the  short new approach from High street  across the Evans' property. If this  offer had been accepted it would l.avc  saved the city more cash than the  whole amount of last year's money  by-law.  The up-shot was, to use Mr. Lawes'  own words, "Tlie Mayor's conscience  would not allow him to vote for the  city to expropriate roads. Alderman  Evans' conscience would not allow  him to do anything in the matter  but sit down on a progressive move.  He did not see why anyone wanted  to live on a hill when there was lots  of room in the flat. .Alderman Peel's  conscience would not allow him to let  public works by contract. I should  havc said, in my offer-1 made it a  condition that the work should be  done by contract.."  When it came to a vote, the petition was turned down, and Mr.  Lawes' offer discharged.  "Thc Mayor then proposed that a  motion be put that the Council pass  a resolution that the Council pledges  itself to make a road as soon as a  a tour of the west in July  gust, accompanied by Mr.  and possibly Mr. Fielding.'  to make  and' Au-  Graham  ANOTHER   POULTRY  SHOW  The West Kootenay Poultry & Pet'  Stock Association was formed at  Nelson last Friday.

An interesting account of a tiger-  huTit is given by oik. wlio had a  wide, experience in hunting this  most dangerous of beasts. Mounted  upon elephants, thc writer and his  companion's had been beating the  jungle without making a find, until,  as they were about to give up the  search, a sudden disturbance  among thc elephants appeared fo  betoken a- tiger near at hand. Giving directions to the others as to  the order of marching their elephants, the writer ordered his mahout to turn into tho thick feathery  foliage fco the left, in search of a  poo! of water which he ���������������������������remembered to bc there.  There was-a slight descent to a  long but narrow hollow about fifty  or sixty yards wide. This was  filled with clear water for an unknown lengthy  1. was just about to make a. remark, whon, instead of speaking,  I gently grasped the mahout by the  head as I loaned over the howdah,  and by this signal stopped tho elephant.  There was a remarkable sight.  About one hundred and twenty  yards distant, on my left the head  and neck of a. large tiger, clean  and beautiful, reposed above the  surface of,the water, while the body  was cooling, concealed from view.  Here was our friend enjoying his  quiet bath, while wc had been  pounding away up and down the  jungles  which hc  had left.  "Fire at him," whispered the  mahout, "or you will lose him! He  will see   us and bc off."  "Hold your tongue!" T answered "He can't see us, for the sun  is at our back and is shining in his  eyes.     See how  green  they1 are."  At this moment thc tiger quietly  rose from his bath, and sat- up ,on  end. liko a dog. T never saw such  a sight. His head was beautiful,  and thc eyes shone like two green  electric lights as the sun's rays reflected-from them; but his huge  body was dripping with muddy  water, as he had been reclining  upon thc  alluvial bottom.  For quite a- minute thc tiger sat  up in the same position. At last,  as if satisfied that hc was in safety'  and seclusion, hc once more lay  dawn with only the head and neck  exposed above thc surface.  "Back thc elephant gently, bufc  do not turn round," T whispered.  Immediately thc elephant backed  through tho feathery tamarisk without- the slightest sound, and we  found ourselves outside the jungle.  Wo could breathe freely.  "Go on now. quite gently, till T  press your head; then turn to the  right, descending through the tamarisk till 1 again touch your turban."  I counted thc elephant's paces  ns she moved softly parallel with  the jungle, until T felt sure of my  distance. A slight pressure upon  the mahout's head, and thc elephant turned to the right. The  waving plumes of. fche dark-green  tamarisk divided as wc gently  hYov_"d"f(frward7=an cH rran o th e-i-m o-  ment we stopped. There was the  tiger in the same position, exactly  facing mc,. but now about seventy-  five paces distant.  "Keep thc elephant quite  steady," I whispered*, and sifting  clown upon the howdah seat, f took  a rest with the rifle upon tho front  bar of thc gun-rack. A piece of  tamarisk kept waving- in the -wind  jusfc in front of the rille, beyond  my reach. The mahout leaned forward and gently bent it down. Now  all was clear. The t'ger's eyes were  like green glass. Thc elephant for  a moment stood like stone. .1  touched the trigger.  There was no response to ihe  loud report of six drams of powder from the "five, seven, seven"  rille, no splash in the unbroken surface of Ihe wafer. Thc tiger's head  wn . still there, but in a different  altitude, one-half below the surface, and only one chook and one  large eye still glittering like an  emerald above.  Upon examination, it proved tliat  there was no hole whatever in the  tiger. The bullet having entered  the nostril, broken the neck, and  run along the body, the animal consequently had never moved.  This tiger, when laid out straight,  but without being pulled to increase  ifc'. length, measured exactly nine  feet and eight inches from nose to  tail.

Samuel Adjai Crowilier, an African slave boy who became a.  bishop, delighted to tell to his club  dren the story of how he pub on  his first shoes. In "The Bl&.k  Bishop" Jesse Page gives the stor*.  in the bishop's own words. Foia  of the pupils in thc missionary'!  school had been promoted to the  position of monitors. This v/as a(  Pourah Bay College, under Bev.  Charles Ha ousel.  To give effect, to our position, wa  were allowed to wear shoes. Strong,  stout shoes, with very thick soles,  were procured and given to us|  Ihey were called "Bluch.r shoes."  On a Saturday afternoon we wero  called, received a pair each, and  were told to wear them every Sunday to church at St. George's Cathedral, a distance of about three  miles.  Never ha.ving had shoes on before, we began practising in our  dormitory that evening. None of  us could move a step after lacing  up our feet in thc unwieldy article::, and consequently we were objects of laughter to our pupils.  An idea struck me at once, which  I put into execution. Crawling to  a corner of the room, I first knelt  down, then holding on to the wall  ,fo>" support, f. stood up, and still  being supported by the wall, 1  stepped round tlie room many  times, the others following my example, till wc were able to leave  the wall, stand alone, or movo  'about without  support.  You can well imagine what a burden this was to us, and after losing  sight of the college, we sat on tho  grass, took off thc shoes, walked  barefooted, and put them on only  at thc porch of the church. Wo  did the. same on returning to college. After some months' practise  we were able fo move better in  them, bufc eornpla'ncd h-iw they hurt  our feet, and would rather be without them. Bufc after some months  wc invested in the purchase of  boots ourselves, a'nd were always  careful fo buy those that made  noiso and creaked as wc walked, to  our great delight and the admiration of our pupils.

Therefore, nerve-racked  travellers should make for thoso  blue signs aiid enter the portals  which they adorn ; but the youthful  an.] the giddy aged, who love  bustle, clatter and music, will go  elsewhere.

Terms: Net Cash with order  The Columbia Flouring Mills  Company,   Ltd.  Enderby B C.  New settlers, all of a high standard  are flocking into Canada now at: a  rate altogether unequalled in the history of the Dominion. The immigrants are of an excellent type, with  plenty of stamina and every indication of adaptability to good citizenship. Very many of them are men of  independent means, and practically  all of them possess some amount of  capital.  A report from Ottawa says the rate  of influx is breaking all records, and  present indications from shipping  offices and other agencies show that  the total for the year is likely to be  well over 300,000. When the high average of character and material circumstances of these people is remembered, it will be seen that this must  prove a notable year for Canadian  development.  From Great Britain it is expected  that there will be" fully 100,000 new  settlers, all of the best class of agriculturists, and most of them well  equipped with money, or its equivalents, and with working knowledge.  The number of immigrants from  the United States will be not less  than 150,000 this year. These will  consist in the main of farmers from  the western states who have sold  out their partially exhausted though  high-priced holdings there in order to  take up the ��������������������������� cheaper and far more  richly productive land of the Canadian West. The immigration from  the United States is already 50 per  cent, in excess of what it was at this  time last year, though that constituted a record, and certificates and  reports to hand show that the new-'  comers are bringing in $811 for each  man, woman and child. This.means  that for the year the United States  settlers alone will bring into this  country an aggregate of $125,000,000,  and the United States immigration  will not he more than one-half of our  total immigration for the year.  "Last century's early stages of  United States development were not  one-fifth part so rapid," says a writer in the Standard of Empire.. "Actual records prove that. The twentieth century is said to be Canada's.  The difference between express train  and stage coach travelling fairly represents the difference in speed of development between the nineteenth and  the twentieth century on this side of  the Atlantic. Ontario and Western  Canada (especially Alberta ancl British Columbia) are getting the bulk  of the new settlers who have arrived  so far, hut also the Eastern Maritime  provinces are getting a better percentage this year than hithertoi  A" COTTAGE   HOSPITAL  No people could be more liberal in  the support of a worthy cause than  are the people of Enderby. Never  has an appeal been made on behalf of  a commendable movement that has  not been met���������������������������and well met. There  is now an opportunity to assist in  the establishment of an institution  in our midst that will mean more, to  us than most of us realize. Some  time ago when the cottage hospital  project was taken up by the ladies,  the great objection, or what was  considered the insurmountable difficulty in the way, was the fact that  at least two trained nurses would  have to be employed to ensure the  proper care of patients. This difficulty need no longer act as a scare-  bobbin.  A week or two ago, Mrs. Wm. Sewell   and     daughters     arrived   from  Frcderickton,    N.   B., to make their  home in Enderby.   Mrs.  Sewell made  the purchase of   the    house formerly  owned by 'Walter   Eobinson, situated  on Mill    street,    opposite the Ira C.  Jones property,   corner   of High St.  Mr-s.  Sewell and   her   elder daughter  are trained   nurses,    and it is their  desire to establish a cottage hospital  in their home.     The   house is to be  provided  with all the necessary conveniences for    a   small hospital, and  these ladies will    take entire charge.  It is    Mrs.    Sewell's   desire to get  such assistance   in   the furnishing of  the wards as the city can give.   She  proposes  that   the   furnishings shall  remain the property of the city, and  that the use of them be given her so  long as she conducts a hospital.   All  renovation of   thc   building, and the  expense incurred in'making the additions she   deems    necessary,   will be  borne by   Mrs.    Sewell, but she feels  if she and her daughter give their experience as against the furnishings of  the wards by the   city, it should be  considered just and fair.  Mrs. Sewell is going at it. in the  right way, and should be given every  encouragement. A cottage hospital  for emergency cases is greatly needed  here, and a better site could not be  selected.

WADDELL,  Hazelmere.Ranch, Enderby.  The man who keeps hens is not so  much of a philosopher as the man  who lets the hens keep him.  The ordinary man is never so anxious to fight as when he feels someone strong enough for the occasion is  holding him.  A Boston physician was describing a week's drive that he took last  fall through some of the most picturesque districts of New England.  "I saw much that was memorable,  and heard much that was worth remembering on this quiet, bucolic excursion. I remember an elderly, justice of the peace in a beautiful New  Hampshire village near Lake Suna-  pee. I stayed there all night with  this fine, keen old man. He amused  me and impressed me with his mordant humor.  "During the evening the question of  the unreasonableness of womankind  came up for discussion. 'Ah," said  he, 'woman is unreasonable, very unreasonable indeed. In fact, there is  no living creature so unreasonable as  I=rememher-=-that=-my^wifc-i  and I were talking over our affairs  one day, and we agreed that it had  come to the point where we must  both  economize.  " 'Yes, my dear,' I said to my wife  'we must both economize���������������������������both.'  " 'Very well, Henry,' she said with  a tired air of submission to an un-  pleasant condition, 'you shave yourself, and I'll cut your hair.'
