It is attracting buyers   from' districts miles  away, and when 'they get here and  see the character of the street work  going on, and inspects the stock carried by him' in his new showroom,'  they,(many of them) rub their eyes  and ask in a dazed fashion, '.'Is this  Enderby?"  The Annual Flower . Show .held by  the ladies of St. George's church auxiliary, on the, beautiful grounds of Mr.  Moffet's home, Wednesday afternoon  and evening, (yesterday) was without  exception, the best -event of the kind  ever held in Enderby. The showing  of fruits and flowers, while not as  large as might have been looked for,  yet withal was very creditable.  In the evening   a   musical program,  i "i  given    from    the   wide porch of ..the  home, and of the highest quality, was  greatly - enjoyed,     fuller    details-"of  which,    with   the- prize list,  will be  given in our'next issue.

The train service /was all that, could_.be asked, the  boat service excellent, and the generous hospitality of the people of  Kelowna fully appreciated. The  train left Enderby at 7 o'clock, and  reached Kelowna in about four hours.  The weather at Kelowna was delightful, and the day was spent on the  lake shore beneath the shade trees so  profusely scattered there. At 5 in  the evening, the boat whistled for  home. Close connection was made at  the Landing, and the trip by train  was made on fast time. Half an  hour from Vernon to Armstrong and  15 minutes from Armstrong to Enderby, arriving at home at 8:45.

I' gasped out that the Injuns was  upon us an' then i ficw for my firearms.  When the boss discovered that the  lujua and fourteen doughnuts, almost  new, had 'vanished, he was some put  out', and after we had discussed the matter, I acted on his advice and came farther West. That business experience  lasted me a good long while. I don't  like business an' f don't blame any one  who has to follow it for a livin' for  ' wanting to have a vacation so he can  get out when; the air is fit to breathe.

One of the great  cnariAS of thc prairie is its very difference from other laud-  ' scapee, and the person who has not the- perception to feel  this in a Philistine in the appreciation of beauty. ,  Te the sympathetic ear the prairie talks in all .seasons;  even in winter, when fast asleep under it's blanket of snow,  it still'has something to say and sometimes'snores" rather  loudly in the form of a blizzard, which, after all, is nothing  more nor less than its nightmare or a little burst of temper;'  and eren the most saintly is allowed a fit of temper now and  then..

A more cruel and idiotic law was never made  by a������������������y presumably sane individuals, and i am "quite sure it  must have been suggested by some tea-drinking society of  ol* fa������������������hioiictl "Maiden ladies," who feared for their mignonette beds aud their pussy eats.  Tf thc poundman had done his duty-aud gathered in | all  the kemelcss and tagless dogs which have always swarmed  on tke Winnipeg streets, there would be no necessity for the  public expjiscure of the.well-known "inhumane germ" which  "iiifetfs" th������������������f"cotuicircham.ber "and gets "in"its "doadly work on  every new member of the city council. Men who under  or#i������������������ary circumstances have fairly kindly hearts, on being  tilcA'ated (f) to tho city hall become perfectly callous and  in-ijfforcut to the sufferings of animals.  This year the city fathers were in a fair way to redeem [  their reputations by placing'several drinking fountains for  horses, but now they have sadly backslidden to the standard  iet hy their predecessors, by compelling all dog owners to  Accompany their dogs every minute the poor animals spend  on tkeir constitutionals. Tt is pitiful to go along the streets  these fine days aud see all the miserable little dog faces, thc  pittwes of misery, where they sit tied to verandah posts.  I svpposo some of these city Solons are nervous about their  flewer gardens during thc summer, and can think of no othor  way ef protecting them than depriving other people's dogs  of their freedom. Anyone who wants a garden should havo  a fe������������������ce; children are as destructive to gardens as dogs, and  yet ������������������������������������������������������ has suggested taking children out on a lead.  Perhaps they never thought of that, so Aunt Mary offers  the ilea as a new field for experiment.  It is a pity Winnipeg is becoming a fenceless city, for a  fesce ghros a finish to a lawn and adds dignity to the house  an������������������l its surroundings by making it more private and less like  a. bearding house or a. charitable institution. A large ox-  pemsive house on an unfenced lot has a very public appear-  a������������������ce, and might be a public school or a private hospital for  all tke casual passer-by can tell.  Let the dogless man fence his garden and the doggy man  pay kis license and the poundman collect tho unlicensed  de������������������ and tho dogs themselves have a little liberty and everybody* will bo satisfied and no one will bo harmed; but as  thiags are at present what are dog owners paying a license  fo������������������f Per thc privilege of leading out on a string a rampant itog, half crazed from confinement f  ������������������    #    ���������������������������  What a curious thing milk is. We woro told all wintor  tkat the reason tho milk was so aneamic looking was that  the cewa bad only hay and other dry food to eat,'but.that  as seem as the snow went we'd see the difference. Well, we  do, but lot juBt the difference we were led to expect.   Is jt  possible that tke cows get their feet wet in the little pends  still lying about ou the prairiesV.   There seems to be seme  mysterious connection between thc poorness of the vilk and  the opening of the ice cream season, and tke connettieB adds  nothing to the quality of the inilk.   Perhaps the cow3 are  ou strike, realizing that tkey are likely to be overworked  thi-s summer with the ice cr������������������am season in full blast so early  in May.   I really think the eews should be gently but firmly  expostulated witk, for only eleven quarts of lactatod  city  water for one dollar does seem  rather exborbitant even  in  this eity of milionaires.  *    +    *  r The city bread gets worse and woise. and judging by the  collection ef curios I have, been able to gather from the  loaves in the past two months, suck as very hard lumps of  old dough, bits of sacking, 9tring and an occasional paring  from a finger nail, the yearly house-clean ing of the bakeries  must have been most thorough, and the by-produets I have  mentioned, disposed of to good advantage. We have been  promised great things in the way of wrapped bread and clean  bakeries and wagons, but the drivers still handle and "embrace-the loaves and set their baskets on any -convenient  heap of refuse.  If the housekeepers of the city would stand together and  refuse to accept bread of which they had any suspicions,  from careless drivers, they could remedy this state of affairs  is one week. The cleanliness of .the food supply depends  eutirely on the housekeeper, and . as. soon as it is realized  that women mean to stand as one'for clean 'food, that minute  the demand will be met and the time-honored slovenly  methods at present in vogue will,give way to cleaner and  newer, arrangements. Don't leave it for your neighbor to  start, but do your own share towards the improvement rigfit  uow.- Watch your baker and milkman and sec how, they  handle your^'ood when they think 'they are unnoticed, and  act up to your convictions in the matter. Refuse to take  in''any food not as cleanly prepared'* *iih1 handled'as'what  you cook in your own home, and we can force the purveyors  of foods into cleanly habits in spite of themselves. The  caterers of the city ask the -highest prices'and put us off with  the poorest articles they, dare; it is now up to the women  to be firm and demand the best���������������������������both in quality,and cleanliness���������������������������for their money. The fly season has arrived, and the  campaign against dirt should start' at once'-in every household.,  '  '* -. ;    *    *  This 'week, instead of the usual recipes given in .the  Hocking Chair, Aunt Mary is devoting thespaee to garden  hints, this being the time to start the garden, for according  to "House Beautiful," May is the principal planting mouth  for the- summer-flowering" bulbs. ��������������������������� For the sake of convenience four sorts,of plants not closely related-may be arranged  under this heading: they arc the tuberose,*.the dahliaj the  gladiolus and the lily, though the-latter are'not planted so  much at this season.

' He would not" take anything  in-all the, world for his\ knowledge of  it. Jt is nature's safety valve, hc says,  an automatic protection against disease. Mr. Sinclair docs not venture to  assert that he is proof against "virulent  diseases; such as smallpox or typhoid.  Although hcelaims to know one ardent  physical eulturist, -i physician, 'who  takes "typhoid germs at intervals to  prove his immunity, Alr.; Sinclair would  not care to go that far.' Jt is enough  foi him to know that hc is proof against  the common infections which beset man  and7against all the chronic ills. . He  expects to continue so just as 'long as  he stands by his present resolve, whicli  is.to fast at ,therslightest hint of any  symptom of ill-being, a cold or a head"-'  ache, a feeling of depression or a coated  tongue 6r a, scratch' on' the finger which  does not heal quickly." -. .   -  Those who have studied,the fast as  a cure explain its-miracles, a"ccoidiug  to Mr. Sinclair, in the following way:  7'Superfluous, nutriment, is taken into the' system ."arid' ferments, arid the  body is filled-' with- a greater quantity,  of poisonous niatter than the~ organs of  elimination can' handle.

Very few perennials can compare with them, how-  over, and in other countries they are highly prized for garden  planting. The color harmonies of the asters and goldenrods  in American landscapes are most beautiful, and these, plants  are well worth growing together in border gardens, especially  in frout of .thickets of shrubs or trees. The species found  in any locality serve very well for garden planting. They  may readily be transplanted late in autumn or early in spring  to rich moist soil. With good treatment they improve greatly  in the garden.  Delightful as the garden flowers are, shrubs arc still more  lovely, and thc most beautiful shrub of all, the lilac, does  exceptionally well in. Manitoba. The lilac has been called  one of the Penates of the American home, having bloomed  besides the dooryards of the early settlers as far back as the  year J652, and probably before.  There are numerous species, besides the usual one, but  they are best not planted together. The color, time of bloom  and habit of the different species and hybrids are so various  that a visit to a nearby nursery, or a watchful eye as one  passes along, will be useful later, as the sight of a shrub in  flower is worth more than till the catalogue description one  could read. Thoy grow on almost; any kind of soil, but a  rich and modoratoly moist one is the most suitable. - The seed  pods should be removed as soon as thoy have finished  flowering, and tho necessary pruning' done. Suekcrs aro  detrimental to tho flowers, and should bo cut down as soon  as they appear. Lilacs are often infested with a scale,  mostly the well-known oyster shell, but in some cases thc  San Jose. The usual spray of lime and sulphur will control  tho pest, but if already badly affected, cut thc shrub to thc  ground and it will come up from the roots and bloom in  three or four years. In case of the hybrid lilacs, which are  grafted, be careful not to cut below the graft, or some will  havo a shrub of the common lilac or privet, whichever tho  stock happens to be. Lilacs need much feeding, and an annual top dreeing of barnyard manure is good,  his heart may stop beating in the night  I'took iirfastof three-days "out" in" California on the third day T walked fifteen  miles, off and on, and, except that T  was restless, 1 never felt better."    ,  When the interest roused by Mr.  Upton Sinclair's crusade on behalf of  the fast was at its height, ho received  something in the nature of a challenge  from the distinguished editor of the  Critic and Guide, Doctor William J.  Eobinson, a careful student of therapeutics and a writer on medical topics.  Thc ideas of fasting which Mr. Sinclair  now disseminates seem to Doctor Robinson calculated to do much mischief.  There is no such accumulation of experience and observation as warrants  the positive tone in which Mr. Sinclair  announces his results. This seems to  Doctor Robinson a very important  point. All forms of treatment of disease, hc points out, must be carefully  studied (luring long" periods���������������������������as long  as two or three years in some cases.  Furthermore, there arc symptoms of  disease which can be met adequately  only by the administration of appropriate drugs, unless the patient is to go  from bad to worse. Organic diseases  again have a somewhat treacherous  series of symptoms in certain stages.  It may well be that the patient will  feel better after a certain period of  abstention from food, but this by no  means indicates that he is ou tho way  to permanent recovery. It" is possible,  indeed, that in breaking his fast a  patient will commit some imprudence  calculated to render his last condition  worso than his first. Nor is there any  such   novelty   in   the   ideas   of   Upton  sr&tfBsat"- rr.-*  Sinclair as he and others imagine.'-  From-time to^time in the history of  therapeutics, says Doctor Robinson, en-7'  thusiasts have arisen with,, these -same-;  ideas "regarding the efficacy .of the fast'  cure "for- all bodily ills. The , subject'  has been gone into by competent-phy-^  sicians, whodo not hesitate to. recoiH-"/;  riiend ,ii fast to "a patient when eoridi- '  tions warrant',such.a course.'

JULY 21,  1911  PROTECTING THE PEACE  We would like to know how much  longer the citizens of Enderby are to  be pestered ;'by, and the peace of the  community broken, through this barbarous, rude, uncivilized and altogether  idiotic custom of the charivari or  "shiveree." It is high time the-matter were brought to the attention of  the police and a*n end put to these  disgraceful exhibitions of hocdlumism  or criminal indecency.    ������������������  The charivari originated in France.  During the Middle   Ages, a charivari  was  generally    directed   against persons contracting' second nuptials, and  was   got up   for    the purpose of expressing a general dislike to the,persons against   whom \ it was directed.  As early'-.as the Fourteenth Century  the   custom   was    suppressed   in the  country where it originated as being  of too low   and   vulgar a nature to  be countenanced  by society.   Similar  customs seem   to have existed under  different names in all parts of Europe  and sometimes   they   were of such a  licentious and violent character as to  require police interference.     More recently    the   custom   has    completely  gone out of existence except in some  of the '-rural"' districts   of the United  States  and  Canada.     In  these  communities " the   idiotic hubub is generally kept    up   until   the   groom has  purchased the   peace ' of himself and  bride by ransom.  The whole idea back of the charivari is indecent, vulgar, vile, and  lacking in the first essential -looking  to good '��������������������������� citizenship. It should no  more be - tolerated in a civilized community than the entering) of the home  by force and robbing it of its sanctity and tho groom of his pocketbook.  It is surprising that in a community such as this, where,we are prone  to plume ourselves oh the number of  churches and similar civilizing influences existing'that this discard of the  Middle Ages should still flourish and  be permitted by the police."  Perhaps there   is    some excuse for  the small boy who participates in the  charivari.    To   him   the   sanctity of  thc home   means   nothing.     But can  you   imagine   anything .more idiotic  than for a person grown to manhood  standing    an    hour   or   more   at   a  time beating a   circular saw or a tin  can at the   window   or doorway of a  citizen newly married ?   And can you  imagine anything more degrading to  a community   than for us to permit  or submit to this   barbarous custom  without demanding the interference of  the police ?     Surely, it is somebody's  duty to   preserve   thc   peace   of   the  citizen.      Last   Monday night,- from  =10^oiclock^until-=nearly-=12=a-party=ot  tin   can    artists   and    circular    saw  pounders raised the usual hubub following the   marriage of a friend,  at  or near   the    corner   of   Russell and  George     streets.       For   nearly   two  hours the peace   of every resident in  that vicinity   was   disturbed, and no  effort was made   by the police officer  t}o quell the disturbance.   Indeed, the  custom of   chivaring   has become so  pronounced that the people engaging  in one   of   these   savage   demonstrations take pride in the fool's calling.  They should be treated as any other  body of lawbreakers,   and dealt with  accordingly.  rapidly, and you are at last getting  the land split up and sold to a desirable class of settlers. This is a  game in which I should very much  like to take a hand, and I wish I  were in Enderby again. I often wish  it, and if some plans now only in  embryo, materialize as I hope, I  shall inflict my presence upon you at  no very distant date.  "I wonder whether Enderby and the  Northern Okanagan realise what they  owe to Charlie Little's initiative and  pluck in booming and pioneering that  end of thc Valley? I am inclined to  doubt it. But few I think know it  as well as I do. He always believed  in its future, and wrote me somewhere about 1900, I think it was, to  see if I could raise the necessary cash  to buy   the       and the   places  from the mortgagees. Under' $4000  would have done the trick then,  which, as the French say, 'gives 'one  to think.' Anyway, I hope he is  now getting his reward.  ���������������������������''Tarn glad also that you have got  a man of Mr. Ruttan's type as mayor  and that you are getting things done.  When I told my wife that Enderby  had bought a steam roller and rock  crusher, her first thought was that,  now perhaps a person could walk out  to our house in the spring' without  gum boots. These things, especially  Salmon Arm road mud, linger in the  mind, probably because they were  originally so well rubbed in.  "Things are getting quite intolerable here under this "Welsher' government. As you have doubtless seen  in the papers, all national - securities  have fallen to below, lowwater mark,  and nobody with anything to lose  feels safe. Taxes and unemployment  are the only things on the steady  rise. It is, or should be, a solemn  warning to any government to know,  as nobody can fail to do, of the enormous amount of English securities of  apparently the highest class, which  are being realized and invested in the  Colonies. . Why', my cousin, Mr. W.<  Mantle, of Kelowna, whom I think  you have met, was here in the winter,  and raised $600,000 for investment- in  the .Okanagan, with , almost' no  trouble. -.This by _ one firm, for "a  comparatively Ismail.; and;, not yer-y.  well-known district, must mean some}  thing.  "B. C. is booming here just now.  The papers mention it almost daily  in connection with the flotation of a  lumber merger or land deal, and there  can be no doubt that just now English capital is flowing as far west as  it can get in a steady and increasing  stream: ���������������������������  "Good luck to her, let her boom !  But it is up to you boys to see that  the bottom doesn't fall out.     DO IT!  "I have inflicted a long letter on  you, with no excuse, except that my  pen got away with me.  "With best wishes to all,  "Yours very sincerely,  "W. A. DOBSON."  "Holiday making at Sheringham,  Norfolk, Eng.  List it with me now,  before my new booklet  is printed.

W. A.  DOBSON   HEARD FROM  It always is a pleasure to read a  letter written by Mr. W. A. Dobson.  There is so much personality in it.  And it is not always necessary to  agree with Mr. Dobson in all his deductions to appreciate the quality of  the letter. Mr. Dobson devoted the  4th of July to thinking of the Enderby Press and the people and the  beauties of Enderby. In a letter received this week Mr. Dobson says:  "I have been receiving your paper  regularly, and hope always to do so,  but I had apparently got the idea  that I had slipped into the D.H. list  as no thought of an overdue subscription has as yet disturbed my  slumbers.

Well I could tell  this tale of woe at length, but your  columns would forbid, so I will state  the business part of it. I have communicated with Mr. Hamilton Lang  about it for three years and been put  off one way or another each time. I  asked for a trail 30 feet wide and  some scraping and filling to make it  passable���������������������������a very direct and short  road about 150 yards in length-  through the reserve. I wanted it  constructed and gazetted by the Government. ��������������������������� It would cost $50 or $60.  Trouble with the Indians was the  first excuse, and I think, second also.  But this year I am informed that "It  will be necessary for you to obtain  consent of the Indians through Mr.  K. C. McDonald, when I shall be  pleased to recommend the construction to_it." (This as nearly as I can  quote from memory -as I sent Mr.  Lang's letter to Mr. K. C. McDonald,  Indian agent, and have not had it  returned yet.)

Thursday, July 21,   1911  THE ENDERBY PRESS AND WALKER'S WEEKLY  *'  ��������������������������� i  Reasons for Cancellation of all  Permits for Land Clearing by Fire  As there appears to be a general feeling* of partial discontent  throughout the Province in consequence of the cancellation of  permits for land-clearing by fire  in various sections, more particularly in the Kootenays, a statement in reference to the necessity as it appears to the governmental authorities for such action  would seem to be perhaps desirable at the present juncture.   The  officials of the Forest Protection  branch of the Lands Department,  it may be said at the outset, are  fully in sympathy with the objections of these  commonsense  and careful settlers who do not  see why they should be deprived  of the right to utilize fire in the  clearing of their lands, and who  contend   that   the   bringing of  their holdings under cultivation  is thereby hampered and retarded.   Unfortunately, however, it  is impossible to discriminate in  the formulation of rules and regulations between those who will  exercise due precautions and con- j  trol their fires and those who will i  ' not do so ;  and the fact that out  of forty reports of expensive fires  of the present season that are  just to hand, land clearing operations are set downsas the originating cause in thirteen instances���������������������������  almost 35 per cent���������������������������is evidence in  itself that some strict control of  such operations   has  become a  paramount necessity.  Of the thirteen fires referred  to and chargeable to land-clearing, but two were under requisite  permit, and originated through  insufficient care in the handling  of the settlers' fires. A very  ^common source of destructive  forest fires is proven to' be smouldering fire from slashing - burnings, while the burning of brush  without sufficient force to cope  with any possible spread of the  flames is another established dan--  ger to valuable property. In one  case recently, sparks from a clearing fire, "under.permit, in the'vi-  - cihity of Salme in the Ymir district, occasioned a fire whichrhas  cost the country no less than  : $900.00 in fighting, which, had  due care been exercised, would  "not have been occasioned���������������������������the  province at the same time retaining a valuable tract of timber  now written off as lost.   .  The clearing of land by fire of  course is attended with a mini-  mum.of risk^during the winter  and spring months, and during  such seasons it should be arranged for, although the summer  appeals to the average settler as  the period best suiting his convenience. When fire is invoked  during dryer seasons of the year,  certain cardinal rules of precautionary procedure are shown to  be essential, and their observance  would produce a saving of millions of dollars now counted as  has already run to astounding totals in millions���������������������������and incidentally  obviate the present necessity of  bringing the careful settler under  the operation of somewhat drastic rules which the carelessness  of his less thoughtful neighbor  has made imperative for the time  being and under existive conditions.

" "   "     "  Primarily, slashings should not  be burned, the timber refuse being collected into piles instead and  care being taken to leave a sufficient fire guard between the fire  and adjacent inflammable material, cither standing or fallen wood  or dry grass or buildings. Again  it is proven to-be of great advantage that fires for clearing be  lighted at night instead of during  the day, the atmosphere being-  heavier during the hours of night  the forestation and vegetation  generally being damper, sparks  carrying with less facility, and it  being considerably easier to locate communicated fire. Constant watchfulness is of course,  too, a most important factor of  safety ; and when the refuse desired to be consumed has been  thus disposed of, the settler should  look well to the embers, lest  these, left smouldering should be  borne away by the wind to prove  the initiation of a disastrous fire.  General and commonsense observance of these and a few other  simple rules which will suggest  themselves to the average man of  good judgment would certainly  result in an immense and gratifying depreciation of the fire loss  of British Columbia���������������������������a loss that  Fred.

The young poet had just finished  wVat Ve considered to be a work of  real inspiration, and, rising freni his  table, he hastened upstairs to where  his little wife, a bride nf six weeks,  was sitting assiduously darning his  soets.  "Listen, sweetheart," he whispered,  tenderly.   "I   have just written   this."  And he began to read. He put his  whole soul into the reading. His gestures were graceful, his intonation perfect. The whole spirit of his beautiful  poem breathed forth as he threaded his  way from the beginning to tke end  of his theme; and when ho had finished  he looked at her, awaiting the verdict.  For a time she was silent.  "Well, dear heart," he said, "tell  me what you are thinking?"  "I was wondering, dearest "  "What?"  "Whether the butcher was not awfully late with that liver?" she replied.

Crane was yauiiger  and less discreet he had a vaunting ambition to play "Hamlet." So. with  his first profits he organized his ewn  eompan}- and he went to an island  Western town to give vent to his ambition and "try it on."

Farmers who are not raising  pure bred carriage or draft horses are  woefully neglecting their opportunities.  The demand is greater than the supply.

Now is the time when, if he  would retain bifi;captauicy, all his pow-  .ofg arnst' bo put' forth.

Tar him to prove it  Tk* struggle began in tho early days  of March.. The Premier brought it upon himself. He introduced, into the  Drum a measure known as the Western  - Zciuatyo Bill, the effect of winch," ia  brief, would be to confer a measure of  self-government upon  eighteen million  - inbabitaats of the Western Provinces  of Snesia.

He adjourned thorn by Imperial  decree upon a Saturday, and upon tlie  following Monday, he promulgated,  again by Imperial decree, tho Western  Zemstvo Bill. Thc stroke was daring.  M".

Nothing could have been further  from the facts, as M. Stolypin was soon  to find. The outraged councillors, tho  defenders of the crown's prerogative,  could uot contain their fury.

An an-,  dience was granted to Senator Trepoff.  The Premier, alone and without a single ally, faced the huricane and waited  for it to. subside.  Waiting brought him little profit.  The presidont of the Duma resigned  and .\f. Stolypin's supporters in the  Lower House were disorganized and  dismayed. The Council of the Empire,  made-of sterner'stuff,-resolved to'bring  him to book. The weathercock' - at  Court was veering round to their quarter. The councillors gave notice of an  interpellation requesting an explanation from the Premier of what was  styled his breach of the fundamental  laws of the Empire. , > The Premier  waited yet a little, and then,-- on Friday last accepted the Council *'s challenge in a tone of high defiance.  ,. Rising in the council chamber, whose  galleries" occupied by Grand Dukes,  Ambassadors, and the chief politicians  of St. Petersburg, the Premier- -went  straight, to-the point. If the ,use of  Article S7 were illegal he personally  took the responsibility for it."' The kernel of the matter, he' said,'lay in_-this,  that the Council.held that the "extraordinary circumstances'*'-iwhich alone  justified i the use of Article S7 could  only arise when Parliament was' uot  ���������������������������sitting.." >The-' government-".maintained  that such-circumstances" could arise and  had 'arisen, wheu' Parliament-r'was-.sitting. --.'The' decision as,.yo what wore  ''extraordinary ,,circumstances'-' . was  not a.matter either for the Council or  the Duma, but for the -, government;"  neitherCouncil nor Duma had the right  to question such decision.-. His action,  though exceptional, was legal and -justifiable. The interpretation which thc  Council placed upon "Article S7" was  neither correct nor acceptable. And  with that blunt statement tlie Premier  resumed "his seat.  ' The Council, however, rwas not to be  browbeaten". It decided by'99 votes to  h"Z that its-demand for an explanation  was not affected by the Premier's declaration.' -And "fresh troubles aad  thorny obstacles lie in the'Premier's  path. The Duma has to give its second  decisioa on the Zemstvo Law within a  month. "tTho can say what attitude it  will ..adopt, or whether hatred of the  dictatorship may not triumph over desire for the  law?  The 3trnggle is still in progress, [t  grows near its climax.

"Take this latest improvement in  telephony; what will it convey to the  average man to tell him that it has  been affected by putting coils of wire  in the circuit of the submarine cable,  which 'have the effect of setting up in  the circuit an inductive action antagonistic to that already in the cable, or  in. the circuit; that these two neutralize each other, and in consequence conversation is rendered possible ovor a  longer distance? Is it of much, avail  to explain further that a -woll-insulated  cable is to all intente and purposes a  Leyden jar, and is to a certain extent  charged by eachtelectrical impulse that  passes through' it?. Some few of us  may retain a hazy recollection of primitive experiments in the ^science room  during'our'schooldays; but that rcmom'-  brance of the ' foil-covered receptacle  known as a Leyden jar helps one very  little to understand the mysteries of  the submarine cable, or how the introduction of induction coils at' every mile  and a;half of its length removes the  defects', of indistinctivoness'.and weakness of sound when speaking through  it by means . of a telephone. It is  enough for^him te know that the work  of the electrical engineers will enable  him to speak with his correspondent  at Paris from -Dublin or Glasgow or  Hdinburgh instead of from''London or  Liverpool, which up to the present-has  ben about the limit of the" exchange."  The distinctness of the sounds trans-  mittedv by .long-distance -telephone -has  greatly increased in recent years.

This  cable is regarded by the engineering  department of the British Post Office  as experimental, but the results obtained from ir have been so .latisfaotory  that, it has apparently passed that  stage. Tt marks a very important advance over all previous achievements  in long-distance telephoning over submarine cables. What is technically  termed commercial conversation���������������������������that  is ordinary conservation as distinguished from the exchange of messages by  experts���������������������������-will be possible between  towus in England and on the continent  where the added distances from thc  ends of the cable do not exceed seventeen buadred miles. In other words,  the, n������������������w cable in connection with" unloaded .aerial land lines, containing  eight hundred pounds of copper to the  mile, will enable conversation to be  maintained, say, between London and  the e.ity of Astrakhan, on the shores  of the Caspian Sea, or clear across the  whole continent of Europe.  Thii great achievement is, however,  adds our expert authority, by no means  the end of imponding-telephone progress. Telephone/ engineers look forward  with hopefulness to the time when it  will be possible to transmit the spoken  word from any one point on the globe  te aay other. That day is still a long  way off, bnt that it will come is the  firm belief of' those qualified to form  an opinion as to the possibilities of  electrical  science.      Already, we".rend.  BEHIND THE SCENES IN-PEKING  The present discontent-in..China, with  its latent possibilities of armed insurrection, recalls the 'vague mutterings  that arose before the Boxer 'rebellion  in 1D00. 'Thc'nwfjil experiences of tlie  American' and European-' envoys "and  theiiv-familics during the" long siege  by the Boxer fanatics and Chinese soldiery, are vividly set-forth by Mary  Hooker in" Behind the Scones'in Peking, a book' recently published. ft  was early in the'spring that the boxers  began the rioting and then, as now. no  one attached much importance "to the  outbreak.     Indeed,   it   was   not   until  the end of May that  foreigners found . .  tt^Tidvisable^-t cr^ro"iiilr~iir~fraiff=ih"e eoorpt'"^arotind=b4nri7=his=faee=an=olive-green;  hills, fifteen miles away, and congregate for safety's sake in the legation  buildings at Peking, which could be  more  readily  defended.  "1. felt,'' writes Mrs. ffooker at the  end of the story of battle and murder  and fevers and partial starvation, "I  felt exactly as children feel who have  been having a wild game of make-believe all day, when the grown-ups  break in and say, 'Contfj,'children, there  has "been" eTiouglFof "tliisT*- And ~^o" it  was with us: thp^e terrible rimes are  over, and there is nothing for us to do  but to remain passive, and try and get  i-oiiic sort of equilibrium into" our lives  again; and as we dined together that  last night there was a strong feeling���������������������������  though we did not speak of it���������������������������that nobody but ourselves, who went through  this incredible eight weeks of horror,  would ever know really what the siege  in .Peking has been; and that we. might  all talk until doomsday, but the world  will never understand."  The transformation of tbe beleaguered legation buildings into armed fortresses is effected before the reader's  eye. The handful of American and  European marines allowed by the Chinese government to come up. from Tientsin before the destruction of the railroad is disposed to the best effect, and  the tragic defence haf- gone on for  weeks, with- manj- deaths and wounds,  when we come to this:  pulse'them  they  occasionally  get very  keep  tbem  hiwa3-s  in  their own  roon^  nor can we allow them to be much in  the  eompouiKi.  as  half  the- time  it  is'  tli'mlT"with    exploding   buileta),   it   u-  then  a  sight  to  behold.    Thore  uie  a  good  many  children   here.     Thoir  one  game is 'Boxer,' and they copy in miniature what we grown-ups are playing  in    earnest.     The   younger    ones   ore  forced into being the attacking Chinese,  and I am afraid when the big ones re-  l-enl bump* on thoir heads.    They have  small   sandbags   and    barricades,    and  thoir Chinese war-whoop of 'Sha! yha!'  (Kill I   kill I)   in  a   creditable  imitation  Of thc real thing.      It is very clever,  and they are all very'full of "life, and  I  help them  to  play, for it's a good  thing that they don *t realize what all  this may mean, und we hope reliof will  come beforo thoy lose their spirit and  before they know .   .   . The ^Methodist  Mission,  soJately  vacated,  was looted  and  burned "last  night.    So much  happens in overj' twenty-four hours 1 can  hardly keep account of it all, and ae a  background-to tbe 'hourly horroVs'that  develop is the continuous snipe,' snipe,  sniping,  mostly by our own men, who  arc in the roofs .of- buildings shooting  at. the constantly approaching incendiaries. "���������������������������"  Already there was scarcity of food,  although there was abundance in native .shops under the guns of the Boxers. Therefore���������������������������'Imagine oiir surprise  whon, late in the afternoon, a Chinese  cart driven by Fargo Squiers, a boy of  fifteent years came thundering into the  British compound with the upper part  of the cart riddled with bullet-holes.  He "was heading for the two rooms in  'Dr. Pool's house which had been allott;  ed to his family,- and his,..freight consisted of dozens of tins of the above-  mentioned supplies from Imbeek's  death-surrounded .shop, which' he had  procured at the greatest risk to his  own life. The' committee were about  to order him to unload 'his- desirab'le  cargo .with tbem, to be used for the  good of the public, but^upon hearing  that "the -bovvhad ridden into the very  jaws-of death-Yo procure these supplies,  aud had-dared to-do what no' man in  the compound had dared,, to do, they  toldhim he could have the disposition  of them, for by his rash valor he had  wcILeanied the lot. '  ���������������������������7'It. seems' he procured a ' Chinese  cart, and forced two.coolies to go with  him. On their way,;-to Imbeck's one  was killed by a bulletin his head, and  though the other survived to'help him  load the cart, after arriving iu ' the  courtyard' of ,the place, -he" had .difficult-work, as coolie number two tried  to run away,-and twice the boy'had to  point the muzzle of his rifle at him in-'  dicating-what, he .would do if-he" made  any further' attempts.- They r were-fairly-free'from shots-while,actually loading the "cart.

It is said that this accounts for the  -inimitahl&���������������������������patience,, of_the_ man,, and  that mellow smile when asked for tbe  forty-eleventh time at the hour of  4:45, "Is the train on time?"  .Most of these miles were travelled  at a time when the Molasses Limited  was running on winter schedule with  the temperature at 10 below and all  around zero. So you may know how  long it took. Mr, Burnham is now  Tagent "at Enderby"." ~  ".Mosquitoes !" exclaimed hc, with  the train in sight, "why man you do  not know what it means to have  mosquitoes real bad. When I was  on the road some years ago, we used  to know what it meant. I have  seen us pull up at Enderby station  at 60 miles an hour more or less, and  the cloud of mosquitoes which were  drawn along by tlie train was so  dense the sunlight was dimmed and I  would open the express car door only  long enough to yell "Baldy," and  slam it shut again, then it took me  the balance of the day on the way  to Sicamous to kill the pesky animals  in the car. Sicamous was l^On by  the train men as Mospuito Junction.  The inauguration of the new 30-  mile-an-hour service over this branch  line, is in contrast to what it used  to be in the early history of the road.  Twice in my time on the road, we  went into Sicamous without a piece  of baggage or a passenger. The rank  growth of the weeds along the track  in the early summer made traffic very  difficult and sometimes slow, On  one occasion we were 2 J hours going  from Vernon to Larkin, a distance of  8 miles. The present service and the  traffic are the truest indication we  can get of the marvelous development  of the Valley since then.���������������������������"  Aside, to an enquiring face in~tlle~  ticket wicket: "Mosquotoes ! No sir;  there is not a single mosquito in the  station. They are all married and  have large f amilies���������������������������what lio you  want !     Speak up !"  Speaking of mosquitoes���������������������������and it  seems hard to get away from the bub-  jecty however disagreeable" it-, may - be.  Speaking of mosquitoes, as we said:  ���������������������������draw up close; here's a secret: it is  only the female mosquito that stings.  The male is a decent kind of an Anopheles, If he eats at all, iti is on  vegetable matter. But both the female and the male are tipplers. It  is known they have a great appetite  for beer and wine. The mosquito is  short-lived���������������������������especially if you get a  chance to swat him���������������������������or her. It is  thc best policy to ask no questions  as to sex of the Mosquito���������������������������if you get  a chance to swat���������������������������swat ! Because  the mosquito���������������������������male or female���������������������������does  not mean any good to anyone. Its  only mission in life is to propagate  its species and to give life to the malarial parasite, for it is through the  mosquito that the sexual generation  of the parasite is developed. The  micro-organism of malaria is a pro-  tozoon which in the human being inhabits the red-blood corpuscles, the  spiores being thrown into the blood  serum afterward entering other blood  corpuscles, extracting their red coloring matter and destroying them, The  full life round of the malarial para  site, however, is not completed until  it has been taken with the blood of a  human being into ' the stomach of a  mosquito. "Here, and here only, is  the sexual generation of the parasite  developed. Certain of the parasites  which undergo no development in the  human body, when they are brought  into the   stomach   of   the mosquito,  "continue"a" "sexuirdevel op men tr^ii nite  and give birth to elementary forms,  known as blasts, which benetrate the  stomach wall of the mosquito, enter  the salivary glands, and are thus,  with the poisono directed into the  body of the next human being punctured by the mosquito.  Mosquitoes, as a rule, do nlot fly  very���������������������������far. -They., generally.!'dic_ near  their breeding place. They may breed  close to your back door: in the collection of water in' the hollows of old  stumps or in old bottles or in old  discarded tomatoc cans, They breed  profusely in rain-water barrels, in  rain-water tanks, and in old wells,  and even in cess-pools where the  adults are able to gain access to the  pools. It is interesting to note the  life history ,of the mosquito. Taking  the modqV'ito that does not fall under  the kindly swat of a red hand, she  will be hatched, lay from 200 to 400  eggs and raise a family all in a period of ten days The bunch of eggs  are layed on the top of stagnate water. ' They are laid early in the  morning, and, if the day be warm,  they will hatch by two o'clock in the  afternoon of the same day. But the  eggs do not hatch mosquitoes. They  hatch the wrigglers so often seen in  rain-water barrels. These wrigglers  undergo three distinct molts, from  one form of life to another, all in  seven days, then the skin on the back  of the throax of the wriggler, now  having reached the pupa stage, opens  Deer Park Fruit Land  ENDERBY  No Irrigation Required  These lands are situated on the benches near Enderby and arc especially suited for Fruit and Vegetables, and, having been in crop, are in splen-  -did-condition=4or.=planting.====  An experienced fruit grower is in charge and will give instruction to  purchasers free of charge, or orchards will be planted and cared for at a  moderate charge.  160 acres, sub-divided into 20-acre lots are now on the market at $150  per acre.

It rests upon the pupa skin until its  wings are dry    and   then flies away.'  It is now buzzing around you ear' !  There it is on your nose !  SWAT IT !!!!!  Our attention has been called to an  enveloped published by the Board of  Trade of Armstrong, backed with a  map similar to that put out by The  Walker Press. Instead of showing  the roads leading to Armstrong, it  pretends to show the branch line of  the Okanagan railway, and the position of Armstrong and other Valley  towns on the railroad. The map is  evidently the work of some pig-head  of the old school. It omits to show  Mara and the town of Enderby, and  shows Armstrong big and Vernion  small., ���������������������������    Give the cement walks all the water  they will drink for three months and  it will mean decades in their "lasting" qualities,  PUBLIC    HIGHWAYS  Province of British Columbia  NOTICE is hereby given that all  Public Highways in unorganized districts, and all Main Trunk Roads in  organized districts, are sixty-six feet  wide, and have a width of thirty-  three feet on each side of the mean  straight centre line of the travelled  road.
