WATERPROOFING    LEATHER     BY  RUBBER TANNING  For years past considerable ingenuity has been expended towards discovering a practical means of rendering  leather impervious to moisture, thereby  extending the durability and utility of  this material.  Hitherto heavy dressing by oil and  grease has been found to secure tho  desired end with the most conspicuous success, but such a palliative has  many decided drawbacks. It appears  that a commercial process has now  boon perfected whereby practical  waterproofing is secured, aud tho resultant product is.a ���������������������������material more durable than commercial leather, with at  the same time no depreciation in its  pliable and soft qualities. It is pointed out that these features are retained  even after the fabric has boen submitted to immorsion in water for long  periods.

EARRINGS AGAIN POPULAR  "Earrings just now are as generally  worn as brooches, pendants or rings, and  it is necessary to keep them at all  prices in a������������������great range of designs," said  a very high-class jeweler this week,  when asked-whether tho-eoronalion was  establishing any new demands in regard  'to ornaments. Jt has ' been widely  noticed at the various events that-the  Queen has honored with her presence,  as in her' latest portraits, that her  Majesty favors their wear, and is said'  part of the jewelry she uses. As a  rule the* Queen, wears beautiful solitaire diamonds or pearls or else the  cluster form, and whether in day or  evening dress,, they seem always-' to  complete and    enhance the    beauty of  -the rest of the parnre. ���������������������������������������������������������������������������������  - This marked'revival" in the wear of  earrings  is interesting,  for.perhaps  it  - is 'the" oldest,  as  it  is   certainly     the  most widely  distributed form-of  fem-  ' inine adornment in thc world. One  goes very far, back into the dim past  of history when the servant of Abra-.  ham  sought  Itebekah  for  his master's  ��������������������������� son's bride and "put the earrings upon  ''her face0 and the bracelets upon"   her  hands."       . .-. ���������������������������  ."IMMORTALS" AND 7.

Tlie general manager of the concern is Mark Bredin, of the Bredin Bread  Company, of Toronto. Mark has been in the broad business  all his life and knows all the peculiarities of yeast and  dough. ITe started twenty-five years ago driving a bread  wagon in Toronto. lie then started in the bakery business  iu a very sinall'way. He baked the bread at first himself,  and after getting a few dollars ahead purchased a horse.  One day the animal dropped,dead and, not having money  enough on hand to replaco the beast, the business threatened  to bo crippled. Finally he persuaded his brother to lend  hini some cash, and a new equine soon hauled the cart  around. He blamed the man ^ho drove thc horse for its  death, and Mr. Bredin took a position on the rig himself.  He continued "on driving the rig for three and a half years,  and then wont back into the shop. The man who he replaced i.s said to be still driving a wagon around Toronto.  Today Mr. Bredin is practical head of one of the biggest, if  not the biggest, broad concerns on ,tbe contiiieut.  Tho young Saskatchewan University seems to have a  way of gathering ,in bright young men for its faculty. Its  latest capture is Dr. J. L. Hogg, who has been on the staff  of McMaster University for_the past five years as professor  of physics, and who has been very popular as a lecturer and  director of practical work in his department. _  Professor Hogg is a Canadian, a graduate of the University of Toronto, and-a scientist of wide reputation. He  took post-graduate "work at Harvard University, and while  there published a series of papers on rarified gases which  have brought him to the attention of some of the foremost  scientists of tbe world.1 He is .to "have charge of the depart meiit of physics at Saskatoon, and'will havo the opportunity of picking the equipment of the laboratory.  - Two years ago another professor from the same university "was" brought west to Saskatchewan, Dr. E.- AY. Oliver,  who is head of the department of history and economics.  Dr. Oliver was also a Toronto University man, graduating  in-the class of 1902. " '   '-     . ���������������������������       "  At Varsity ho was a perfect hog-for work. Most students think-they.are doing remarkably well if they take one  eouise and get decent honors in it. Oliver took the hardest  course in the curriculum, classics, added English and history  on the side, and also dabbled in political economy. Tf the  lectures had not overlapped he would have probably added  a couple of more courses. Those-who didn't''know _ him  called-him a "plug," but those'who did, knew that there  was no man more ready for.a lark than Oliver. Ue got all  there was to be out of. university.' Since, graduation he has  been taking all "kinds of post-graduate courses in addition  to carrying on professional work." Nearly, every summer  now"-he takes .a jaunt' over to Europe "and tramps through  the."continent"hunting, up out-of-the-way.-places, searching  for ancient Roman villas and secluded'Greek'.spots,, made  famous by-its immortals.

His father was a German immigrant who settled in  thc Maritime provinces, although his mother was of English  descent, At the time of thc German war scare, when patriotic orations were thc order of the day. ,Dr. Schaffncr  made a little speech on thc question which was intensely  loyal in tone, and' which got a huge reception for the news  had spread around someway tbat tke doctor was "German.'*  However, for that matter, our own imperialistic, intensely  patriotic premier, 'Roblin,' is of Dutch descent, which is  nearly the same. His forbeais belonged to that small group  of Dutch United Empire Loyalists from^Pcnnsylvania, who  settled in Eastern Canada. ' His mother also is of Dutch  descent, her maiden name being Adelaide DeMille. Dr.  Schaffner is not thc only member of parliament of German  descent. Clare, member i'or South Waterloo, boasts his  ancestors came from the fatherland. Peter Elson, member  for East Middlesex, in the last house, belongs to the same  Dutch U. E. Loyalists group,as the premier, his great grandparents standing by the king in the revolutionary days.  *     *     4  The Duke of Wellington, who has received an invitation  to attend the centenary celebration of the summoning of the  Cortes to Cadiz, is not the only British peer who possesses  foreign titles, though no other peer possesses more than one  such title, whereas be holds titles from three foreign countries. The Duke of Richmond is Due d'Aubigny in France,  a title which was first conferred on his ancestress. Louise  do la Quorouaille, by Louis XIV. Again, both the Duko of  Aberdeen and thc Duke of Hamilton arc Dues de Chatel-  herault in France. Foreign titles arc also held by Lord  Clancarty (Marquis of Heusden in Holland), Lord Dun-  donald (Marquis of Maranbam in Brazil), Lord Bridport  (Duke of Bronte in Sicily), Lord Cottcsloe (Baron Fre-  mantle of the Austrian Empire), Lord Clarendon (Baron  Villiers of Prussia), and Lord Newburgh (Prince Giustin-.  iani-Bandini in "the Papal States), but Lord Wandsworth  no longer uses his Portuguese title'-.of .Viscount de Hem.  In addition, there are several���������������������������among whom may bo mentioned thc Duko of Marlborough���������������������������who are Princes or Counts  GIRLS WHO MUST EABN A LIVING  A writer in the New York Press, signing herself "Business  Woman," does not advise girls to study shorthand and  typewriting. "Better," she says, "study domestic affairs  and become a iirst-class cook, where you can demand a decent salary and get your board and keep, than to pound a  machine for eight or nine hours a day for not more than  enough to pay your board.. T know that the trade of a domestic is looked down upon; bnt the people to blame are the  women who employ and those who are employed. Iu the  profession of cooks the competition is at zero. If a woman  shows she is intelligent and demands thc same respect she  would receive in the office of her madam's husband, she will  get it.  "You will find that the only way to make any headway  in this world is to have a good, sound education.' I do not  mean by this a superfluous knowledge of French or German,  but a thorough knowledge of rhetoric, thc ability to deliver a  straight English sentence, and in writing to be able to  punctuate it properly. If you have been unable to get the  benefit of even a high school education, -read, attend lectures, if necessary, take a night course in English literature,  at the same time resolving to broaden'your mind as to what'  is going on around you.  "Should you enter an office or school or establishment or  wherever your-work may take 3*011, you will-be inclined to  think your present knowledge sufficient; but bofore the year  will have rolled around you will find that you knew practically nothing." ]t is the inclination of men and women to  view life through a slit in thc wall, seeing only their own  view of it and forgetting that there are other views exactly  as good, if not better.  "Bear in mind that* behind "every cloud in the sky the  sun is shining, and what is worth having iB worth working  for; and when yoii get it, have sense and brains enough to  hold on to it. You will alwaj's find that there are dozens  .ready to take your work, and it-may be they can do it just  as well as you; whereas you will'soon "make the discovery  Jhat it is rather hard to locate one good opening on the lookout for  you.

COOKING BY ELECTRICITY  Owing to the greater display of en- .  terprise that is now boing evinced by  electricity   generating  corporations,   iii  conjunction   with   inventive  effort, the  advantages  of cooking    by electricity  arc   being  brought ��������������������������� more  forcibly   before the housewife.

"That's, the vicar," was the dignified reply;  "those are the curates, and I'm the verger, and so long as  the choir gives satisfaction it ia none of my business to  inquire into the antecedents of any of them, man or boy."  companies arc hiring out these cookers, ���������������������������>  and in London thc simplicity.and.per- .  fcetiou of tho system has crodtod such  a favorable impression upon the housewife that they arc comiug rapidly into  vogue.

ENDERBY  The man with money to invest cannot find anything better to invest in  than   Okanagan   property, and there  is no section in the Okanagan better  suited   to   the   purse of the man of  small or large mean's than the property    in   and   about   Enderby.     Big  things are in store for the Okanagan.  Men in   a   position   to know tell us  that we are   to   witness in 1912 the  commencement   of   a period of great  expansion.     The building;of another  transportation   line into the Valley,  if not two, is foreshadowed.     To retain the traffic which it now monopolizes,   the   C. P. R. is   preparing   in  many ways to increase its track and  handling facilities,   so that the present service    can    be improved  upon.  The road-bed from Sicamous to Okanagan    Landing    has   been    g-reatly  strengthened the past season, and it  is the intention to further strengthen  it by filling-in the trestle bridges at  Armstrong    and    other points along  the line.     The C. P? R. also contemplates the    erection    of    a 300-room  hotel   at    Sicamous - to    handle the  tourist traffic   into   the Valley.   The  hotel will be run in conjunction with5  the Banff hotel, and its being located  at Sicamous would indicate that the  railway   company   intends    to make  the Okanagan a tourist Mecca.  Enderby is certain to share' in this  prosperity. The work put upon our  streets this season has been of inestimable-value to the town-and district. It is conrmended by every  traveller in and out of the Valley,  and has already done good work in  inducing homeseekers to locate here.  The good results have but "begun. We  must prepare for ,that which is to  follow, of which we thus far have  had but a taste.  A   LAND   COMMISSION  LOANS  Applications   received  for  Loans on improved Farming  and City property.

ROGERS LUMBER CO., Enderby  There does not now seen? to be any  doubt but that one of the first things  to be asked for of the Dominion Government by British Columbia will be  the appointment of a Ciommission of  local men to go   fully into the matter of Indian -reserves and dominion  lands in the railway belt. '   It is the  desire of the B. C. Government now,  as it   heretofore   has    been, to have  these matters settled in a more reasonable, and equitable way for all concerned.      Especially with  relation to  the Indian reserve lands..    There are  thousands of   acres of the most valuable land in   the    province tied up  needlessly and without the shadow of  an^excuse���������������������������in-=-Indian=reseryes-=which=  has never been, is not now, and will  never be, utilized by the Indians. .   It  stands to reason   that this condition  is wrong, and   should not be permitted to prevail.  Conditions almost as bad exist in  the Dominion land belt. Homesteaders who have been on their land  for. _ from _10._to __20. years,. have.been  unable to get their final papers. Indeed, only a few weeks ago, in thc  Mabel Lake Valley, a settler who has  been on his homestead for 15 years,  nnd has spent thousands of dollars  in labor and money in the development of it, was ordered off by the  Kamloops office. Other instance are  available where conditions are equally as bad.  The appointment of a Commission  made up of local men���������������������������men who are  conversant with the conditions prevailing���������������������������would quickly enable the  Government at Ottawa to get the information necessary for the right  settlement of these questions.'

JOKE ON THE DUKE  A    Local    Painter's    Remark    About  Buckingham Palace  An amusing story concerning the  democratic personality of King  George's uncle, the Duke of Connaught, is going the rounds. It seems  the Duke and the Duchess, accom-:  panled by a considerable party, paid  a visit of inspection to the Hampstead  Garden suburb recently.  A painter, who was standing near  the Duke and Duchess, said he had  served with the Duke, who smilingly  observed: "And now you are a painter.  I suppose things are very_ brisk in tho  painting line this springtime?"  "Yes," was the reply; "but there's  one place that badly wants doing and  doesn't-get it.".  "Where is that?" Inquired the Duke.  - "Buckingham Palace," replied the  painter, and went gravely on with his  work, apparently oblivious of the smile  he raised "on the face of every one In  the, royal group.  "There . your opinion and . mine  agrees," said' the Duke, as he walked  away.  85 per cent of all headaches are the  result of eye-strain. Are you troubled  that way? If so, consult S.

The diameter  of the trees measured at four and a  by just so ranch as this is so does  Canada lose the benefits to be derived from manufacture and the increased value of the raw products.

The c United  States manufactured it-info pulp and  .paper. From.

This year (he, "e.-iec.iit ive decided  lhat the. contests would take place on  Saratoga Bake, Saratoga, N.Y., duly 28  and 20, or a week in advance of the  Koyal Canadian Men Icy. Tin; action of  the National Association was strongly  disapproved of by Canadian oarsmen  because il, was a departure from the  long established .custom uf holding tin-  American regatta after Henley. In former years, Canadian crews, if siicccss-  i'ul at their own National regatta, competed at the. American. The change  was a hardship for junior crews, because, if they entered the American in  tennediato contests, aod   wore, success-  ���������������������������ful, they would he. disqualified for the  Canadian junior races. Coii.scr|ueiitly���������������������������  the success of the Canadian Henley was  threatened   lo  some  extent  by   the ac  tion  of the   National   Association.  All  Canadian clubs, save the Argonauts, decided .not to enter the American National. The Argonauts determined to  train-a special eight to row- intermediate   af  Saratoga   ami   to   reserve,   their  /regular junior eight for lie.iilc.y. Senior  crews were, nunaffected. If the Americans hoped to cut. the Canadian training season short by advancing their regatta a" "couple, of weeks their efforts  ���������������������������were in vain. Under the care of Mr.  Joseph Wriglil, Iheir captain anil aina-  1eur coach, ihe Aigonauts went down  to Saratoga with the- light of battle in  thoir eyes. They entered six' races and  won nil of them from such crack clubs  as the Now Vork Alhlelic.s, -v.hu Arun-  dels, of Baltimore, tlio Do I roil Jioat  Club and the  Vespers, of Philadelphia.  .The six victories, won,-: Senior eights,  senior fours, senior Association single  sculls, senior championship single sculls,  quarter mile  dash   senior  single, sculls,  , and intermediate eight;..

Do  thoso successful border raids mean anything? If one visits American and  Canadian regattas he will notice certain things which help to answer these  ijucstinny. In the first place, the Am  erican oarsinen are rarely the equal of  the Canadian in physique. Secondly,  they do not show the same external  evidence of careful, sane, scientific  training.

Thc  Wool worth l'5uilding. as it will be called, will have a frontage of about in?  feet on Broadway, between Barclay  Street"and Park Plaeo, and it will extend into the bloch for a depth of  about 200 feet. -Its most, distinguishing characteristic, at least to the popular eye, will be ils great height, for its  crowning element, ball "or lantern, or  finial, or whatever it may be called,  will stand exactly 77.1 feet above the  street level.  At the site there is the characteristic,  deep bed of quicksand, and through  this lhe foundations are now being  carried down everywhere to solid rock,  which is about 110 feet below the sidewalk. Hence the structure, from lowest    foundation   to its topmost point.  3. inches to 18 feet 9 inches in diameter.  They are. loaded to a maximum of IS  tons per square foot. Generally speaking, the axes of tho columns stand in  line with the axes of the caissons; but  in.aome cases they are placed eccentrically, and their load is transferred  to'the centre of the caisson by moans  of heavy steel girders acting as cantilevers. These girders are very massive  aud stiff, being,.as"much-as 2 inches iu  thickness in the web, ami having an  average depth of S feet, with a maxi-  inuin weight of 60 tons.  i'rom the 55th1;to the 50th floor, the  inclined .members of the. pyramid take  care of tlie wind stresses. From the  50th to "tho -47th floor, deep floor girders with solid gusscl plates serve the  same purpose. From the -i2nd to thc  -StIi floor, the exterior wall columns  arc braced against the wind by extra  deep wall girders, and by knee braces,  reaching well into the centre of each  story. From the L'Sth lloor to the  street, every panel between the outside  columns facing Broadway and the opposite face, of the building is stiffened  by a full-depth web portal with heavy  flanges. Trunsvorsclv to Broadwav,  the bracing is by means of single portals, reaching across the full width of  thc tower.  There are iu the building (50 main,  columns of closed box section. The  maximum load on a single column  reaches the enormous iigurc of 4,750  tons, and this column measures at the  base, 2 feet 0 inches by ?> feet S inches,  the total cross section ol.' metal being  G50 square inches. Thc architect of the  building, -Mr, Cass Gilbert, and his consulting and designing engineer, Mr.  Gunvald Aus, are to be congratulated  on the design. Thc Scientific American  has frequently suggested that for good  architectural effect it. would be advisable, in these tall buildings, to accentuate the vertical lines at the expense  of the. horizontal. Mr. Gilbert has  done this to a marked degree, and iu  Iiis treatment of the tower he has introduced those open-work piunaclcs or  "towcrehl.es," if wc may coin a word,  whieh the medieval builders used to  such happy effect in the towers of their  Gothic cathedrals.  The exterior walls are to be built of  granite up to the fifth floor ,and above  that of terra cotta. The building -will  be served by 20 elevators, all of which  will be thoroughly fireproof ed; also  there will be four commodious fire-  oseapo stairways, -widely separated  from one another, and each built in a  fireproof shaft. The structural steel  will have a coating of one inch of  cement mortar; their interior spaces  will be filled in solid -with concrete or  mortar, and the whole will be inclosed  in a shell of terra cotta 3 inches thick."  There. will be no wood whatever nor  any inflammable substance in the building. Doors, windows and trim will be  of presesd steel, floors of mosaic, and  exposed exterior windows will be glazed  with  wi re -,clamps.

Hero  it is suimounted by a pyramid which is  ")'l feet square at th<^ base, in which aro  live additional floors and an observation  gallery, the last-named being at an elevation of 7.10 feet above lhe sidewalk.  There are two floors below street lcv\  ami the geneial height of each story  throughout i- 12'G feet. The Wool-  worth Building is designed in accordance with the building code of this city,  which allows 150 pounds per square  fool loud on the first and basement  floors and 75 pounds per square foot  on each of the other floois. When we  renieinbiM that a uniform wind pressure  of :!'> pounds per square foot over the  whole surface of'the building ha^ been  provided, fi", it can be understood that  'he stresses from wind alone reach enormous figures. The maximum direct  compression from wind pressure on ono  single column of the building reaches  2,500,000 pounds, to which must be added 200.000 pounds delivered from tho  portal bracing.

The 'peculiar feature of the turbine is the  use of movable blades, which are operated in series. 'Four sets of such  bladesare used, and at high speed the  steam strikes the first set of blades  only, while at intermediate speeds two  sets or' three sets can como into play.  The reversing mechanism is a special  and unique feature of this motor. The  rotors have, two sets of blades which  are of opposite, curvature. When running in one. direction the steam passes  over the. blades at the outer .circumference from left to right; when running in Ike opposite, direction steam  passes over the oilier set of blades  from right t.o left. In either case the  loss of energy due lo the blowing action  of the second set of blades only  amounts to a small fraction of the total,  and the experiments show it to be 2  to '���������������������������'> per cent.

THE KERGUELEN ISLANDS  Franco is beginning to take au interest iu the Werguelen Islands, discovered by the French navigator Jv.r-  giiolon-Treinaroc in 1772. According  bo Ifcriii Boissiere, who. with his bro  therr has devoted -Jiinisclf'tn* the* development of these islands, they will soon  become a  prosperous colony.  They contain no trees, but an immense quantity of a fodder plant, -i  species of cabbage, which is eagc-ly  eaten by horses, sheep, pigs, and rabbits. Rabbits, ruts, and mice aro the.  only indigenous animals. There is  also a single bird, the sheathbill. which  lives in company with the sea-birds.  The sea-elephants, which had been practically exleruiinated by 1SI0, are now  again very numerous. The waters  round the island1, also abound in  whales, and it is upon the whale, and  sea-elephant fishery lhat. the hopes of  developing "'   useful  colony  rest,  WANTED TO KNIW  Tommy had been taken lo church  for the first time, and there was much  about it that interested him.

"Very well, then, what is it?" said  the good lady, bending down to catch  the iitfle chap's words.  "What does dat minister wear his  nightgown for? Ain't he got any pyjamas'?" asked Tommy.  Away back in tho days when the  *' Kadiumadaisy"���������������������������as certain of the  old mothers-in Israel were wont to pronounce "Reading Mado .Easy"���������������������������formed thi; chief factor in the literary portion of a rural Ontario education; when  "maple sap was boiled down in monster  kettles and predigested-breakfast foods  were less heard of than automobiles,  logging was a matter of horny banded  and iinreinittenf toil. Ontario was  cleared by axes and saws in the hands  of untiring pioneers, and a dinky, horsepower sawmill in Ihc bush was a luxury.  What was true of Ontario applied, for  the most part, to every portion of wonderful, tree-covered, early America.  Then came the salad days of the lumbermen and the picturesque features we.  always associate with logging operations���������������������������especially in lOastcrn Canada,  where the French-Canadians added color and romance lo the hard work���������������������������were  developed. Bit by bit the ruthless  war reduced the units of forest, and  once vast stretches of woodland became thinned as thc hair on a worried  head.  ���������������������������Naturally, during this progress thc  old hand method of logging was discarded for something" more adequate,  Thc strong, backwoods teams with their  skilful drivers; the skid roads and the  costly Jogging trails were introduced  and later shared their work with thc  useful donkey engine. Now, with the  primeval forest making its last magnificent stand along the vast reaches  of the Pacific Coast, inudern science has  eliminated practically all waste, and  incidentally, the individual importance  of either man or beast has dwindled  most remarkably. The time is right at  hand when the great trees, rearing their  branches in some far wildernoas of  bush, will be whisked down, carried off,  and reduced to dressed lumber entirely  by machinery!  Lt is peculiarly fitting that this perfection of log handling should materialize where King Timber i.s making  his last stand and that the last, stand  should be made in British Columbia,  where timber is perhaps the greatest,  asset of the .Province. It is almost' impossible i'or one has never been among  real timber fo realize what, some of  the stands of British Columbia timber  are like. There is no doubt that it  is fhe finest timber of its kind in the  world.  The immense areas of this marketable timber, the great size of the  trees, and the density of the stands,  especially on Vancouver Island, have  attracted ihe attention of the. lumbermen of: the world. II. is.on Vancouver  Island���������������������������a large island . some . eighty  miles -from fhe mainland, which contains thc capital city of Victoria���������������������������that  this limber is at its best, and here,  where some of it.'may be. reached by  excellent automobile roads, it.forms one  of the many attractions for tourists.  When it, is stated that single acres of  timber on Vancouver Island will produce" as much lumber as one hundred  acres anywhere in fhe east, some idea  of its density is gained. As for thc  quantity of it. it has been estimated by  experts that there is sufficient marketable timber standing on" Vancouver Island today to supply thirty-four of the  largest, modern double sawmills, running steadily night and day, for one  hundred years. This does nut take  into account the'growth that would' occur during that time.  There are three districts'on the island where the timber at present being  worked is most dense���������������������������iu the Jordan  Hi ver country; a found Alberhie, and  to the northward of the town of  Comox. It is in thc heart of :"0,000  acres of some of the finest forest in  the latter district   that, one of the lar-  ���������������������������V.'.>���������������������������".���������������������������-'!'*'!���������������������������IUXiSt���������������������������'"0Pern - In nibor_CM mps  in the world is situated. I fore the  modern art of handling timber has arrived at its highest development. The  bell of timber "thus tapped is a part  of the old original Nanaitno Railway  grant, and it. is unique in that the land  is flat.  To properly handle this great belt of  standing lumber the company constructed a standard-gage railroad from  Comox". north���������������������������to._thc_..valjcy ..of the  Campbell Hi ver and covered, with side  lines, the property. This road is so  solidly and substantially constructed  that "it might be used at any time as  a regular railroad line. The euro exercised in its building is amply repaid  iu the time saved by the. extra heavy  loads it is possible to haul over il. The  unique feature of this camp at present,  however, is what is known as the cable-  way skidder. A strong cable is rigged between I wo giant frees, one of  them alongside the railway line, lhe  other at the farthest border of the  area being worked. Smaller cables,  with special hooks, thc whole strung  through sliding blocks, depend from  Ihe main cable and are governed by a  powerful stationary engine. By this  ingenious method logs are picked up  as they lie and shot tliron_:h the air  to thc railroad line. There, they are  dropped neatly in position on special  flat cars ready for transportation to.  the. water.  This method of skidding logs not  only saves infinite timber and labor,  but it delivers the logs free from dirt  and grit which become ground into  them "by thc old method, aud often  prove disastrous to the saws at the  mills. As for the work saved by  this aerial'logger, the reader can figure  it out from the facts that'the bolt under operation cuts over seventy-thousand feet to the acre and thc trees  average two hundred feet high. The  skidders .now in use at the Mackenzie  and Mann camp have a capacity of oue  hundred thousand feet, of logs a day  each.  With the logs loaded on the big flat  ears the train is made up. Thero are  usually.-forty loaded cars to a train.  Powerful locomotives���������������������������the latest arrival is the biggest engine on the island  ^-'arc used to haul these trains to salt  water. Once there the work of un  loading is mere child'sI'' play. Specially constructed machines unload a  whole eai at a time aud the forty cars  are cleared off" in a jiffy. When sufficient logs have boen brought to the  water to form a raft they aro bound  together by huge chains inside a linked boom, and one of fhe company's  tugs drops a line and fakes the raft  in tow. By this means the logs are  floated to (he mill at the mouth of  the Fraser River, whore more special  machines takes hold of thom and pulls'  thorn up to the saws.  The modern camp will soon have(,a  capacity of five hundred thousand foet  daily. At this awe-inspiring rate aro  the armies of King Timber being  mowed down.  At present the only hand-work performed about the whole operation is  the actual felling and "bucking up"  of the trees info log lengths. This,  too, will soon be eliminated, for machines have been perfected "which will  do this work more rapidly than many  gangs of axmen and the daily tally  will be yet increased again. ' When  that day arrives a new note entirely  will be sounded in lumbering, and  much of what was picturesque and romantic will have given way before thc  efficient, wasteless, prosaically modern.

THE ENGLISHMAN'S TAIL  It is said that the natives of southern Arabia still believe that Christians  wear hats only to hide thoir horns.  Formerly thc continent of Burope was  firmly convinced that the Biiglishrnan's  nether garments concealed a tail. As  late as the resign of lid ward VI., according to Bale, "An Bnglyshman cannot, travayle in another land by way  of merchandyso or any other honest  occupyinge, but it is most coutuniel-  iotisly thrown into his tot he that all  Fnglyshinen.  have  tails."  The belief probably arose from the  legond of tho "Kentish longtails." The  people of Canterbury, as the legnnd has  it, mocked .Becket as he rode by,on an  ass, and they cut off the ass's tail.

Following thist-. "motto" the man  of such high ideals and poetic mind  says:  ' ''The editor of Walker's Weekly, the  man with , just one point of view,  seems worried over what may happen  to the Okanagan-Advertiser, and allows some of the surplus venom, of  which" he keeps such a large stock in  his brainy cranium, escape -through  the medium of his two-thirds-patent  process "printed rag" which he calls  Walker's Weekly. His bray, however, this time is only a sickly imitation of the sort of stuff that has  been issuing-for years past about the  best of Enderby's citizens, and as it  is natural for- such things to judge  others by themselves, nothing better  can be expected, when we consider  the source from which the slander  comes. ��������������������������� ���������������������������' y       -.--..  f"The good old book tells of thc occurence when Balam's ass spoke,' and'  if it 4was to. speak again it would tell'  about * the ��������������������������� many occurrences when  Enderby's ass has spoken, for, that  old book is very impartial and tells  the- truth ' about " the- bad^ or evil as  well as the good.' ,   ,   ':  "By close '"observation of faces it is  easy to ' see the proof of Darwin'*���������������������������  theory even-in our modern-times..

' .*- -/���������������������������"-_'-.���������������������������' -   >-./:"  "No doubt, as with many ether  things, fear is the motive power that  worries our neighbor, and he dreads  the thought of there being any likelihood of the Okanagan' plant coming  to Enderby. The good Lord knows  that Enderby is in bad need of a  good honorable, truthful newspaper,  wherever it might come from���������������������������one  that would not be afraid to print the  copy of town correspondents and  who would print reports of council  meetings and such like without mutilating them to suit the ideas or interests of the editor.  "We have good reason to believe  that many of 'Enderby's citizens feel  the need of a change in the matter of  a newspaper; yet these good( people-  largely, we-believe, through charity���������������������������  put up with what they have got and  what they get in this line, it being  apparently the only place that the  editor seems' able to make a living,  or be tolerated with his murky, mud-  throwing sheet. Of course, it may  be unwise for the writer to say anything that might reach or stir up the  sediment that lies in the cranium  bowl of the said editor, for the more  you stir a dirty,. puddle the worse it  stinks, and the town has been scandalized and-,blackeyed long enough  with much that has been issuing from  said rag. . But if there is a public  nuisance in a' town .the sooner it is  taken notice of^ and got rid of the  better for the ��������������������������� town. It is well  known that * this sheet, is not only  untruthful, but it is dirty and unworthy of the town -in which it is  printed, and from, which it ekes out  a living,' and there is perhaps nothing harder on a growing town than  an unworthy newspaper.

' Part  of the plants will be taken to Vernon  we understand, and part will be retained at Armstrong to continue the  local paper. It will be cause for  genuine" regret on the part of the  poetic people of our neighboring  town to learn of this change. The  gifted editor-poet has for the best  part of a summer given them pages  of poetry they never could have  found elsewhere and may never see  the likes again. It has been a noble  fight supremely well endured., To  attempt in these sordid days of usefulness to spice life with such soulful  melody of "poesy requires patience and  endurance bordering on the superhuman, and falls like a pall of punk  piquancy on'a community that smells  to high heaven of such plebeian  things' as cabbages, spuds and red-  cheeked apples. Please pass the alabaster box !" --*  ��������������������������� It will be seen that there is very  little infcthis reference to cause such  ire to be aroused. ' We shall now  tell you a secret, and divulge the real  reason for editor poison's wrathy  utterances. - The trouble between  editor poison    and   Walker's Weekly  Press.      Just ���������������������������;where this editor poison came from we did not then know  but we    thought he imagined he was ���������������������������  dealing with Manitoba half-wita.

A.  Marriott has written  a  pamphlet  intended to convey thc gratifying assurance that wc shall soon have  warmer weather all over the world. This  news will probably be received with a  lack of enthusiasm  in Xew York. Chicago, and other places, where they are  well  supplied   with   warmth   just   now,  bat. .Major Mairiott     is a scientist and  his  si-ale   of  time   measurement   is    a  large one.      Ue refers to some future  period wheu the obliquity of the earth's  axis will  be much  loss ilian  it is now,  with a i-onseqnent shrinkage of the polar  regions,     in  ihe year   J3,-3-14 B.C.,   the  axial obliquity was 'do degrees and the  glacial  region   covered  the  earth.   The  pjcseni obliquity is only 2!j degrees, and  in  '.Wo brief years we  shall  reach the  apex of the genial period when the contrast between  summer and winter will  be least.     Already this axial movement  is showing it? effects.      Captain Scott,  aays Major Marriott, on his return from  Ihe Antarctic    expedition,    emphasized  the rapidity with which the south polar  ice is retreating, and it is known  that  there is a similar condition in the north.  In  Canada  certain  lands  bordering  on  the north  have been  hitherto  reported  as too ice-bound for agricultural operations, but large tracts have now been  found   to   present     favorable     climatic  conditions  owing  to  somo  change that,  has taken place, while in Iceland there  was no snow and  hardly  any   frost   in  the mid-December of 1010.  ^ MAN may appear great to some  /bt7 while to others be is merely large.  There is one man who is both���������������������������  President William H. Taft. He likes to  make jokes at his own expense, and  said, one day when be missed a car for  which he had been running:  "The .more waist���������������������������the less speed.''  The unexpected twist that is supposed  to be peculiar to American humor seems  to appear also in Scotch stories. For  example, one which was told me by  Mr. Andiew Carnegie of a Scotchman  accosted by a military picket:  '' Who aie  uier.

On the other band,  *  some  savages  appear  to  have- a' more  '* robust sense of humor than their civil,  ized brethren.    Dr. Livingstone tells of  an .

Mr. R. Legendre, a  French authority, believes that sleep is  defensive in its origin, but he thinks  jbe has established 'the fact that the  thing against which it is intended to  defend or protect us is a poisouous substance, acting specially on the cells of  the frontal lobe of the brain, which  substance is secreted or accumulated in  some way during prolonged waking  hours. "We translate and condense the  following from a lecture delivered by  Mr. Legendre nt the National Museum  of Natural History in Paris and printed  in the Revue Scientifique (Paris. June  17): _        -  "Some old writers thought that sleep  was connected with a rush of blood to  the headj due to tbe recumbent position, but, in reality, during sleep the  brain contains less blood, and we know  that it is possible to lie down for a  long time without-sleeping. (.Observation of blood-pressure at different points  from the brain to the extremities during sleep have made others think it due  to eerebral anemia.- Other authors have  criticized this hypothesis; Brodman has  observed an increase of pressure at the  moment of falling asleep " and Richet  adds that the variations of pressure due  to sleep or awakening are less" than  those due"to.the position of the.head.  "Sleep has also been supposed to be  caused by .modifications of, the blood  or . lymph,., but experiment 7has shown  that there is no relation bet ween sleepi-  ness-andthe condition-of the blood/  "Besides these circulatory theories,  there are others that"explain sleep by  nerve'phenomena. ' Sleep may be-due  to interruption f(of'communication- between the hemispheres of the brain and  the rest o'f the" nervous system.-'���������������������������"��������������������������� Or it  may be "caused by interruption of'contact between nerve-cells, biifuufortnn--  ately. these theories lack experimental  justification.   "-,* ' - .-.      . '���������������������������..:.  "The idea of explaining sleep by an  inhibition, that is to say, by a function  of arrest of the nerve-centres, has  proved a seductive oile to many physiologists. -'.-'-.    . ���������������������������. .. -   .    -'���������������������������'-'���������������������������  "Again, some writers have attributed  sleep to the absence of exterior excitants, basing their theory on observation  of persons suffering from general anesthesia who fall asleep as soon as their  eyes are. closed and cars stopped. * Unfortunately these-patients are hysterical and their sleep differs from normal  sleep. Also, although silence aud darkness favor sleep, one may sleep in the  light and in the midst of noise.  "Claparede has niade a line and penetrating criticism of thcic circulatory.  hypotheses.

IIollo\������������������ay's  Corn Cure will remove them.  ���������������������������'-'. The supposed phenomena, were  thoy real, might as well be the consequences as the cause of sleep.  "3. Finally, even supposing that they  tire really causes, the method of their  mechanism remains problematic. Why  this periodic anemia or hyperemia?  Why this retraction of the nerve cells?  Why this inhibition, this lack of reaction to outside stimuli? The hypotheses  only push tbe problem a step further  back.  Besdes these "circulatory theories,"  we have also chemical theories, which,  although better than the others, are *  still insufficient. Mr. Legendre thinks.  These explain sleep as the result of  poisoning by some substance, produced  by the organism, perhaps the same as  the "fatigue toxin." According to  Dubois, for instance, sleep is due to thc  accumulation of carbonic acid in tho  blood. The trouble is that although  fatigue induces sleep, too great fatigue  interferes with it. Chemical or "toxin"  theories, also, do uot explain the periodicity of sleep, as we know it, nor its  psychologic phenomena, sueh as dreams.  The "biologic" theory of , Claparede  seems aa advance. It.is thus described  by the lecturer:  '���������������������������'Sleep is not simply a   passive   or  negative state, a cessation of the functions  of  the  organism; .it  is  itself   a  function, a  positive  activity  with   its  biologic  significance.    We 'sleep   just  before- we become exhausted, aud'we  sleep to prevent it.   Sleep is a defensive  function of the organism: we are sleepy  just as we are hungry or thirsty. This '  conception   of   sleep' as  an  active  iu-  stinct  preceding,   exhaustion .-"changes  the- question -altogether.     Like -all. instincts, sleep is  ruled  by thejaw of  momentary interests; -\ve sleep only if"  the motive for sleep is the greater at  a  given'moment, but wo'cau  prevent  ourselves from  sleeping if another, instinct is preponderant.    The theory'of  Claparede thus has an immense advantage -over all others, since it alone can  be applied to the vaiied forms.of .sleep.*  Again, it does not exclude physiological  theories, since it may aceept them  as  stimuli of the sleep-instinct."-.  ���������������������������   But if sleep is.au instinct or' defense, ���������������������������  against what.'does it. protect us?

They were alluvial deposit of tho  stream of life lodged in the delta of  Fifth Avenue and Broadway. The Bed  Liners stamped their freezing feet,- looked at the empty benches in Madison  Square whence Jack Frost had ovicted  them, and muttered to one another in  a confusion of tongues. Tho Flatirou  Building, with ils impious, cloud-piercing architecture looming mistily above  thom on tho opposite delta, might well  have stood for the tower of Babel,  whence those polyglot idlers had been  called by the winged walking delegate  of the Lord.  Standing on a-pine box a head higher  than his flock of goats, the Preacher  exhorted whatever transient and emitting audience thc north wind doled out  to him. It was a slave market. Fifteen  cents bought you a man.    You deeded  crhim to Morpheus; and the recording  angel gave you credit. '���������������������������  The Preacher was incredibly earnest  and unwearied. He had looked over  tlie list of things one may do tor one s  fellow man, and bad assumed for himself the task of putting to bed all who  might  apply  at bis  soap  box   on  the  . nights of Wednesday and Sunday.  That left but five nights for other  philanthropists to handle; and had they  - done thoir part as well, this wicked  city might have become a vast Arcadian dormitory where all might snooze  and snore the happy hours away, letting problem plays and  the rent man  ��������������������������� and" business go to the deuce.

But I hate to see the women and kids  get the worst of it."  Just   then   there   hummed   up  red, so smoothly running, so craftily  demolishing tho speed regulations that  it drew the attention even of the listless Bed Liners. Suspended and pinioned on its left side was an extra tire. *  When opposite tho unfortunate company thc fastenings of this tiro became  loosed. It fell to the asphalt, bounded  and rolled rapidly in thc wake of the  (lying car.  Thomas McQuade, scenting an opportunity, darted from his place among  the Preacher's goats. In thirty seconds  he had caught the rolling tire, swung  it over his shoulder, und.was trotting  smartly after the car. On both sides  of the avenue people wore shouting,  whistling, and waving canes at the rod  car, pointing to thc" enterprising Thomas coming up with the lost tire.  One dollar, Thomas had- estimated,  was the smallest guerdon that so grand  an automobilist could offer for the service * he had rendered,^ and save his  pride.  Two blocks away the car������������������had stop-  ed. There was a little, brown, muffled  chauffeur driving, and an imposing gentleman wearing a magnificent 'sealskin  coat and a silk hat on a rear seat.  Thomas proffered the captured tire  with his best ex"-coachman manner and  a look in the brighter of his reddened  eyes .that was meant to be suggestive  to the extent of a silver coin or two  and receptive up to higher, denominations.  But the look was not so construed.  The seal-skinned gentleman received  the tire, placed it inside the car, gazed  intently at the ex-coacliman, and muttered to' himself inscrutable words.  "Strange���������������������������strange!'' said he. -'Once  or twice even I, myself, have fancied  that the Chaldean Chiroscopo has availed. "Couldit be possible?"

The walls wore hidden by gorgeous  red hangings embroidered with fantastic gold figures. At the rear end of the  room wore draped portieres of dull gold  spangled with silver crescents and stars.  The. furniture was of the costliest and  rarest styles. The ox-coachman's feet  sank -into- rugs us-fleecy-and -deep- as  snowdrifts. There were three or four  oddly shaped stands or tables covered  with black velvet drapery.  Thomas McQuade took in the splendors of this palatial apartment with  one eye. With the other he looked for  his imposing conductor���������������������������to find that he  had disappeared.  "B'gec!" muttered Thomas, "this  listens -like a spook shop. Shouldn't  wonderif it ain.'t one of these Moravian Nights' adventures that you read  about. Wonder what became' of the  furry guy?"  Suddenly a stuffed owl that stood  on an ebony perch noar the illuminated  globe, slowly raised his wings and  emitted from his eyes a brilliant electric glow.  With a fright-born imprecation,  Thomas seized a bronze statuette of  Hebe from a cabinet near by and hurled with all his might at the terrifying  and impossible fowl. The owl "and  his perch went over with a crash. With  the sound there was a click, -and the  room was flooded with light from a  dozen frosted globes along the walls  and ceiling.

"That is merely a mechanical toy,"  said the gentleman, with a wave of  his hand. "May I ask you lo be seated while 1 expltiiu why L- brought you  to my house. Perhaps you would not  understand nor be in sympathy with  tho psychological prompting that caused  me to do so. Ho I will come to thc  point at once by venturing to refer  to yonr admission that you know the  Van Sinuythe family of Washington  Square North.'-"  "Any silver missing?" asked Thomas tartly. "Any joolry displaced? Of  course f know 'em. Any of tho old  ladies' sunshades disappeared? Well, I  know  'em.    And then what?"  The Grand Duke rubed his white  hands together softly.  "Wonderful!" he murmured. "Wonderful! Shall 1 come to believe iu the  Chaldean Chiroscopo myself? Let me  assure you/' he continued, "that there  is nothing for you to fear. Instead, I  think 1 ean promise.you that very good  fortune awaits you.   We will see."  "Do they want me back?" asked  Thomas, with somothing of his old professional pride in his voice. "I'll promise to cut out the booze and do the  right thing if they'll try me again. But  how did you get wise, doc? B'gee, it's  the swellest employment agency I was  ever in, with its flashlight owls and so  forth." "      .  With an indulgent smile the gracious  host begged to be excusod for two minutes. He went out to the sidewalk and  gave-an order to the chauffeur, who still  waited with thc car. Returning to the  mysterious apartment, he sat by his  guest' and began to entertain him so  well by. his genial and witty converse  that the poor Bed Liner almost forgot  the cold streets from which he had been  so' recently and*" so singularly rescued.  A ��������������������������� servant brought some tenderc cold  fowl and tea. biscuits and a glass of  miraculous wine; and Thomas" felt the  glamour of Arabia envelop, him. Thus  half'an'hour sped quickly; and then the  honk of the returned motor car at the  door suddenly drew the Grand Duke to  his "feet, with another'soft petition for  a brief absence.      - . -  Two women? well muffled against the  cold, were admitted at .the front door  and sauvely conducted by the master of  the house down through the hall through  another door to.the left and led-into  a smaller room, which was-screened and  segregated from the" larger fronts-room  by- heavy,, double portieres.'7 Hereithe  furnishings were even'more elegant and  exquisitely -tasteful  than- in- the other.

BERLIN'S NEW OPERA HOUSE  It has been decidod that the new  Royal Opera House i Berlin shall bo  built upon the site now occupied by  Kroll's Theatre. The old opera houso  is to be preserved as a memorial of the  reign of Frederick the Great, under  whom it was built, and as the first  great pillar in thc musical edifice which  has since been developed in Berlin. The  location for thc new building, which  will not be completed for several years,  is not easily accessible, so it is planned to have the .underground railway,  which is to be constructed from Nol-  lendorf-Platz to Wcissensee, pass under  the Seigesallee, with a station quite  near the opera house. This will make  it ������������������very accessible to tho inhabitants of  all West Berlin, which furnishes tho  greater part of tbe opera-going public.  ins 'J  THE ENDERBY PRESS AND WALKER'S WEEKLY  Thursday, October 19, 1911  HON.

A '.  born  Englishman,. he    stands boldly ,  up and    declares   himself    against a '  cowardly   ruse    of   any     kind,   and  would prefer   to    go down in  defeat,}  rather than   take a mean, advantage '  of an opponent.     He has the happy  faculty    of    expressing    himself  with  candor and conviction without giving  offense.   He   wins  the sympathies  of  men  by   proving    himself capable  of  fighting his own fight without them.  He does not play upon the prejudices  of his bearers, and asks no unmerited  favors.       He   /plays the game fairly  and  squarely,    by placing before his  hearers   the   proofs of his argument  and   leaving   the   rest    to the good  judgment of his audience."

A large number of the  mills are to be closed down owing toc  the unsatisfactory condition of business, and will not he opened till 1913.  Probably the    most important  decision reached    was that  almost 200  Premier Borden , travellers who   have been selling the  of these mills - will be withdrawn, and the whole selling end of  the business conducted from one central office in Calgary. It is also  likely that the Coast Association'will  establish a similar office in Vancouver. Ten . salesmen will be employed out at each office and prices  will be uniform.  The Canadian lumbermen have decided to make a dead set against  American competition, ' and whenever  the central office finds foreign lumber  coming in it will concentrate its energies on price cutting and .running  the invader out of the district. -It  is said that no increase in price of  lumber is ��������������������������� expected, at least until  next spring. But one thing is certain, the prairie dealers will only- be  able to buy through the Calgary  office, which it is said, will be in  charge of W. A. Anstie;" secretary of  the Mountain Association.
