On  every hand prosperity was budding,  and" there was an atmosphere of good  cheer.- Leaving' Enderby���������������������������and let me  tell you if you do not already realize  it, the public improvements made this  season have done more to place this  little town * in the front rank than  anything we ohave done in twenty  years:- Enderby   is ,talked about by  , every traveller in and out of the Val  ley.   Leaving " Enderby,  after   passing   through  lumber yard ^where the A. R. Rogers  Lumber    Company   have  millions of  feet of the season's cut piled, and be-  7yond,the Indian reserve, great improvements, have been and are being  made. -     The ' hundreds   of   acres of  , bottom land   between here and Arm-  .' strong���������������������������which   until    a year-or two  ' backr produced nothing^but pussywillows: and' cattails, are how-heing  drained-preparatory   to cultivation.  -As' we   neared   Armstrong   we   saw  many, hundreds'���������������������������'of-acres. of this bog-  - land tilled 'and into root crop "which  ������������������ +f    ������������������ . * T _. . j.       _____.������������������  Lord, 1911, it is preposterous.

It is surrounded by beautiful grounds and  flower gardens which are to-day as  bright and gay as if,they were growing in California, an'd not away up  here in British Columbia.  Naramata- has ,been in existence  only a few years, but long enough to  demonstrate what a few men of  purpose and ambition can do when  backed up by the best climate and  soil on earth. On the hills of Naramata orchards have been planted,  and, where the proper attention has  been given, the results are phenomenal. Here we saw great changes in  a year's time.

Vernon can surely lay claim to having a most loyal and public-spirited  class of men to handle things for  Vernon. And they are boosters-  boosters singly and in the aggregate".  They boost all the time���������������������������for each  other and for the town. The result  of their working together is discernible at every turn. They recognize  that they have the ideal location for  the central Valley town, and are  making the most  postofflce, building  pletion; the rC. P.  very imposing and  tion there and the  ernment is soon to erect  ernment building.  From Vernon to Okanagan Landing;  the, same progress noticeable- farther  north is in evidence. At the L,iading  the railway company have in contemplation the erection of a proper coaling station for the lake boats. At  present the whole system ;s tiad up  four hours each day waiting for the  s.s. Okanagan to be coaled by wheelbarrow from a car on the dock. If  we were living in an age of the long-  ago or were doing business hv caravan as they are out of Tripoli, there  might be some excuse for this backwoods system of coaling, but here in  the Okanagan   in   the   year    of our  of it.     The new  is  nearing com-  R. is erecting a  substantial sta-  Provincial Gov-  a new gov-  as wU attract attention from far and  wide. We hope to have the pleasure  of reproducing some of them in our  next issue.  At Summerland we also noted the  handsome new opera house. It is in  keeping with all of the public institutions provided at Summerland, and  indicates the character of the future  growth of that section and the high  ideals the citizens of Summerland are  working out in the building of their  city..  Just across the lake from Summer-  land is the new town of Naramata.

The general appearance of the interior when finished  can as yet only be guessed at, but  from the high dome and clear unobstructed view from every part of the  house, it is believed the effect will" be  most pleasing and the acoustic properties all that could be desired.  SUCCESSFUL OPENING DANCE  If the opening dance given in the  new opera house on Tuesday evening",  is any criterion of the. future of this  house, then Enderby will have something to be proud of and Messrs.  Sawyer Bros, may boast of a moneymaker and a pleasure-giver. There  were fully 150 dancers present, and  all were in the spirit that meant enjoyment from the opening to the  home waltz. The ftoor was good,  the management most considerate,  and the music the best. Owing to  the unfinished condition of the hall,  decorations were out of the question,  but everything else was arranged by  Messrs.    Campbell    and Poison,   who  was never intended by its founder,  Mr. Robinson,. that it should be so  termed. Mr. Robinson and the men  associated with him, are here working out a plan that is all their own.  They believe they have at Naramata  He was playfully patting, his .own dog l;t;*g-.

'.:  Early in the Spring when "Dad"  Chambers Cound he could not any  longer dodge the dope poured out by  the Psctilential Pious Pippin of Poesy  Piquancy, he resigned as manager of  the Armstrong Advertiser and hit the  pike for the farm.     We like  "Dad,'  and  when   we   saw   how 'IT  worked  and we feel confident that the people' upon his nerves we felt sorry.   But a  of En'derby   will   give them the sup  port that their confidence and enterprise deserve.  The Glengerrack   Dairy auto deliv-  Bummer on the farm did "Dad" a  world of good. He hasn't that  worrit look any more. "Dad" feels  strong.     So strong'that he has taken  ery was re-estatJlished this week'after jup his old   work/and   now manipu  posed to term a business centre.    .It;had the dance in hand, so as to give  the    greatest   pleasure   to all.     The  dancers of   Armstrong turned out in  numbers,   and   Mara   sent a contingent of twelve   or more.   All danced  hard    and   heartily   and  went home'  , happilv.     G. G. Campbell and T.

And they propose to make this  the pleasure resort���������������������������the play ground  ���������������������������the Venice���������������������������of Canada. In time  they are 'going to, build a large sanitarium there, to which they expect  to attract visitors from Eastern Canada in particular, and America generally. Already they have erected a  hotel that for comfort, pleasure an'd  than this.  Remember the date of S. L.

To-night the Jeanne Russell Company  will   open    the Enderby Opera  lates the poesy punk for Sammy. In  time it is sure to "get upon his  nerves." Before it does so- we would  suggest that "Dad" turn an X-ray  on Sammy and locate the ��������������������������� Poesy  Bug's nest. We do not know that it  could be eradicated, but "Dad's" experience on the farm in chasing bugs  and pests and vermin might suggest  a Poesy Bug exterminator.

No matter what,  they did do, he always claimed that it-  was just exactly what he intended; but  Iiis hands was colored up constant like  ;i fried egg, an ' ! nevor took much joy  in   loafin'  about   the  woodshed.

The   African     sickness,     how-  over,   is   by   no means the only malady of this kind.    A contributor to Cosmos  (Paris, June 3rd)  tells  us of numerous cases where what hc calls "hypersomnia," or excessive sleep, is present.    At first he. notes that mere  excessive   !_lpepinoss--iendcncy   to   go   to  sleep���������������������������is not the same thing. This latter symptom, wliich accompanies many  forms  of  brain  affection,  often   interferes   with   real   reparative   sloop,   the  sleepy person being in a continual light  doze or in  a  state    between    sleeping  and   waking.     Real   hypersomnia   is   a  different thing.    Wc read in substance:  "Simple   hypersomnia    is   characterized by the fact that patients suffering  from  it  are   not  only  sleepy,   but  the  period   of   their  sleep     is  clearly     increased.       In   view   of   the   reparative  part  played -by  normal  sleop, it might  bo supposed   that    exaggerated     sleep  would not be inconvenient.      But it is  a   matter  of  common   observation   that  hypersomnia i.s accompanied by uotablc  fatigue.      .Recent  investigations    lead  to the b'eliof that these states of sleep  are   not   the   effect  of  a   neurosis,  but  the   symptoms   of   very   different* maladies.  "'Besides the affections thai attack  the -central nervous system, a whole  scries"' of maladies may give rise to  paroxysmal sleep, and more particularly those thai affect the glands.  _"P__is failure of" the renal,'hepatic,  thyroid.- aud hypophysial glands that  most often act on "the hypuic function  in such fashion as to produce narco-  Jepsy. - ���������������������������  ." "The approach of this kind of sleep  is ' more or .less brutal, preceded . by  spasms and a sense of lightness Mn the  brain. The eyeballs seem heavy, thc  eyes prick���������������������������in short, the subject feels,  in an'.exaggerated form, all the sensations that announce ' the approach of  norma! sleep. "If he- is walking, his  legs seem to grow heavy and. his pro-  gross becomes uncertain; he has scarce;..  ]y seated himself when lie is sound  asleep. Very generally this . paroxysmal sleep attacks a- subject while he  is resting, or even when he is actively  occupied; and the cases in'which the  patient falls asleep in the course of  mental work or during a meal are extremely frequent. Most, generally he  tries Lo resist, and to this end he employs different means of defense, of  wliich the most active consists in standing up or walking about.

"It is noteworthy that the wakening  takes place almost always spontaneously, without the possibility of any  ���������������������������extorior impressions reaching the subject's mind; and it is impossible, in  most cases, to get at the provoking  cause of thc awakening. Sleep and  waking-seem - regit la ted "by ;i~"eertaiif  rhythm, and very frequency the crisis  of sleep comes on at the same hour  and lasts for equal periods. And the  patient whoso first attack lasts an  hour may bo practically certain lhat  future attacks will be of about this  length,  "Such  are  the  essentia  mental   characteristics   of  Th"   most   frequent  cause,  said   above,   is  disease   of  Those    who   are    being  changes   in   the.   liver   or  particularly exposed lu  if  true  of   those   having  diseases  hypophysis   or   of   the   thyroid  president of the Local Government  Board that tho ..'.'enthusiasm of his  friends was somewhat premature, for  their plaudits are not yot justified by  the results. 'r  He is now face to face with a problem more acute, perhaps, than that  which prompted the Town Planning  idea itself. For the operation of the  act, which came into force recently,  meant the wholesale wiping out of huge  areas covered with insanitary workinf-  class dwellings, especially in rural districts, and the result is that thousands  of poor .families are being .driven from  their homes without any alternative  accommodation except, tiie workhouse  or the  barns of thoir noighbors.  No man is more di.sturbed over these  unexpected   results  of   his  Town   Planning scheme than John  Burns himself.  Mis elevation to the position of a Cabi  net  Minister did  not add  to  his  popu  larity  among  the  rank  and   file of fhe  working classes, and  it is now  feared  among his friends that his town  plan-''  ning zeal  may lead to his political undoing.  Hut meanwhile he passes the* blame  on the local authorities, who should,  he thinks, be. able to rise at once to au  emergency of this kind and provide  the necessary habitations for the dispossessed families. He is reminded,  however, -f hat houses to accommodate  thousands of persons cannot grow like  mushrooms, and that he should have  foreseen the difficulty he was creating  before hc put his act into force.  It must be explained that the shim  landlords of the couutiy are conspiring  to bring discredit upon the town planning scheme, aud that many local  authorities are aiding them 'in their-  campaign of resistance to the working  of the act. '"  The. landlords declare, it would not  pay them to put the old houses iuto i  fho sanitary condition required by the  act, while they cannot run tho risk  of having them inhabited in their  present state, in face of the penalties  which the act imposes. The result is  that evictions, recalling some of thc  old scones in Ireland, arc now a matter  of frequent occurrence in' the. rural  districts ,of England. The situation  has bocome so acute in the counties  adjacent to London that the canvas  tents used by the coronation soldiers  havo boon askod for to sholtcr some of  the ousted victims.  No act of parliament  placed on  the  statute book of England has over provoked     more     determined     opposition  from   the  landlord  class,  and   it  looks  as if lhc battle was only opening. Even  where   the   local   authority -would   be  prepared   to  put  up  tho  working-olass  cottages thc landlords'place a prohibitive price on land, so that il; would be   '  quile  impossible   to   erect   houses   consistent   with   the   rents   the   occupiers  would "pay.

It was irritating and painful, and caused  the little one hours of suffering. We tried  soaps and powdeis and salves, but he got  no better. He refused his food, got quite  thin and worn, and was reduced to a very  serious condition. I was advised to try  Zam-Buk, and did so. It was wonderful  how it seemed to cool and ease the child's  burning, painful skin. ' Zam-Buk from the  very commencement seemed to go right to  the spot, and the pimples and sores and the  irritation grew less and less. Within a  few weeks my baby's skin was healed  completely. He has now not a trace of  rash, or eruption, or eczema, or burning  sore. Not only so, but cured of the tormenting skin trouble, he has improved in  general health."

It is the very  latest thing in kitchenware aud has been designed especially  for use on gas, but can bo used quite as woll on any ordinary  range. So far -as 1. can learn this particular make, of  aluminium utensils cannot be obtained jn any regular hardware store, and is as different from thc ordinary aluminium  dishes of the department store as tissue paper is from iron.  At first sight the price seems rather high, but, having  once seen and handled it, no other frying-pan, bake-dish,  or coffee pot will ever seem anything but clumsy and unsatisfactory, and a twenty-five yo'.ir guarantee makes thc initial  cost look small, even in comparison with the price of common  tin.  The. full set comprises about everything needed for  culinary purposes in a small kitchen, aud, judging by the  ingenious contrivances, they must have been invented by  some summer-widower who found himself unable to cope  with the profanity-provoking (under masculine i-anagement.  of course), soul-destroying implements of time-honored  memory. Everything fits into everything else, without making anything taste of anything but. itself, and several things  may be cooked simultaneously on' {he one burner. The  greatest, charm of these pots and pans, though, is that they  do'not require such an extraordinary amount of what used  to be known as elbow grease to keep them in first class,  shiny condition; and then they all fold 'away -together so  beautifully that thoy arc just the vciy things for the new  apartmoct block kitchens, as a full set'of these utensils  would not require much more room for' storage than the  modern landlord has allowed  for the whole kitchen.  Admirers of this ware have "told me that they have  boiled milk for hours, directly on the gas, without scorching.  T have not been an eye-witness of this miracle myself, but  that, is what my friends say they cau do. In cooking on  gas lhe bane of one's life isvcooking anything with 'milk,  for it scorns sometimes as though the milk takes a malicious  delight in burning and boiling over, even before' it gets  warm.

At  last, having exhausted their subjoct, one will saunter towards the new arrival, if no more prosperous looking person  has come in later, and with a bored manner ask what she  wants. She may say she wants ta look at Pall coats. "Por  yourself?" the girl asks, as she casts a scornful glance ovor  the figure of thc intending purchaser, appraising, to a cent,  her hat and dress. ''What price would yon care to give?"  The poor woman by this time is.reduced to the last stage of  humility-and-murmurs-apologetically,-"Oh,- I couldn't afford any more than twenty dollars." 13ored beyond expression by this confession of penury, the shop-girl takes  down a coat. "Here is one at thirty-five that might fit  yon, and here is anofhor at fifty; would you caro to fry  them on?" Doing her best to appear oblivions of the insulting manner and tone of thc girl, and to cover her confusion, the customer tries on fhe coats, at the same time  assuring Miss Arrogance that she docs not care to pay  that, much. Thc'girl, with the air of a multi-millionaire, and  looking stiaight through tho poor woman, says, "Then, I'm  afraid wc*havc nothing that will suit you," and walks away.  Often, after just such treatment, I have looked about a littlo  and found very good., stylish coats for from fifteen to  twenty-five dollars", wliich' the Superior Person had not  1 bought it worth while to show inc.  For thc last five or six .years, any clothes 1 have had I  have bought, not because they were shown t.o me by a girl  who was interested in serving hor employer by pleasing me,  but in spite of the fact that they were not shown me, and  in spite of the veiled insult of the clerk's supercilious airs.  This is the experience of thousands of women, and 1  am daily hearing complaints of this sort of treatment, J  know several women who prefer to send away for their  clothes rather, than put up with the insolence we are accustomed to in many stores here.  ft is all very well to say complain to flic management, but  wo don't all have the time to go through the necessary red  'tape; and any way, it is thc business of that management  to seo that their patrons are civilly treated, and it should  he unnecessary for customers to have that task added to the  already arduous labor of shopping in these days i. no seatc  ftr buyers, freak systems of paying for your purchases, and  endless tramping from one department to another.

A  careful study of her theory will enable each student to  read flic character of her friends.  "The ancient philosophers laid great stress on thc theory  of mind indicated by matter; and to Solon, in amnlificatio'n  of his wise counsel, 'Know thyself,' we are indebted for thc  Science ol S'olistry.  "Jt was touched on also by Plato, and later elucidated by  Locke on the Human Understanding, and has been treated  more or Jess fully by modern authors in various foot-notes.  "While thc exponent of palmistry may claim to read by  the lines of the hand, it is only when the sole is laid bare  that the roal character is exposed; and by a careful study of  the fool any one may become fairly proficient iu the mysteries of the art, and the wayfaring man. though a fool, need  not err therein.  "The foot, then, is divided into two parts: the full, solid  pair., called the sole; and the divided, movable part-, called  the foes. If the sole, measured from'the heel to tho roots of  the toes, is longer than the middle toe, thc subject is -well  balanced and is an easy-going, whole-souled sort of person.  If, however, the middle toe is longer than the sole; the subject is flighty and unreliable.  "Jf the sole is narrow, it indicates a conservative mind,  easily prejudiced, with a tendency to .solecisms. Tf broad, it  means a free, generous temperament, with no danger of  misunderstandings.  "The mounts, by which is meant the fatnesses of thc  sole at the base of thc toes, are designated as follows: The  mount af the base of No. 1, which is the light, fantastic toe  and is also the ball of the foot, is dedicated to Terpsichore;  No. a.. Mount of Trilby; No. 3. Mount, of Atalanta; No. 4,  Mount, of Cinderella; No. fi, Mount of Mereiiry. Jn the heel  is the. Mount, of Achilles.  "The lines, however, are interesting in the extreme. All  tendencies must draw the line somewhere, and the solist who  reads between the lines will discover a reality in what has  hitherto seemed a solar myth.  "Thc life-line extends from lice! to foe. If this is  broken, it indicates future death. The line of heart indicates heart for heart's sake, ft also shows luck at cards;  hence'it'is sometimes called the cardiac line.  "A strong head-lino is indicative of editorial instinct and  exemplifies reversion fo type. A broken bead-line signifies  pugnacity. There are also lines, of thought leading to lines  of action. The clothes-line shows love of dress. . The fish-  line indicates that the subject is a liar. Thc line of beauty  indicates that the lines are cast in pleasant places, and the  line of sole indicates a cold-blooded subject and'is often felt.  "The occupation of the subject can be accurately determined .from the linos. Thus the line of battle and the  line of' march are hard lines, often calloused, proving thc  soldier or the tramp. A line-meeting indicates a railroad  man; a tdw-line,, a sailor; solar spots, an astronomer: n well-  developcd  foot-ball, a college student.

Some  of  the  most  noted  antiques  are  in   the  different  art collections of the world.    Jn the British Museum arc the  Mark Twain  invented  the science of Thumbology, and  the science of Palmistry is to hoary tbat no one knows wio  owns one of the mbst famous ones, "Cupid and Psycho."  This celebrated gem belonged fo tho great Marlborough collection, and in 1S00 it was bought by the Boston Museum of  Pi ne A ris, when thc whole collection sold for $170,000.  Two of the finest cameos still in existence arc tho Great  Agate of the Saintc Chapcllc, now in tho National Library  in Paris, and thc Augustus cameo in tho great Vienna collection. The Great Agate is said to have be.cn pledged with  other gems in 12-1-1 to St. Louis by Baldwin I.., of Constantinople.  Probably the most celebrated oT all cameos is that  known as tho Portland vase, now in the British Museum.  This is a wonderful example of thc skill, both of fhe glass-  worker and the engraver of cameos oii glass, of ancient  times. The Duchess of Portland bought the vase from the  Barberini family, in whose possession it had been for over  fhrcc hundred yearf-.

Tho return of this style of jewellery to the favor of  fashion will do much for fhe revival of thc art of cameo  cutting, and to the one who has the taste lo prefer a work  of art to more glitter, these gems will have an especial  value not possessed by the precious stones.  _,.'

ROGERS LUMBER CO.,'Enderby  The work of compiling the Municipal Voters' List for 1911-12 is now  in progress in the City Municipalities  throughout the province. The construction put upon thc word "owner"  in the Municipal Clauses Act hy the  Supreme Court in the case of Victoria in the,early part of the present  year, when the whole civic election  was upset owing to the City Clerk  having placed assessed owners of  property on the list as real owners.,  has .shown how one-sided the Municipal Clauses Act is in this regard,  an-d how 'dangerous it is to put a  reasonable construction upon what it  says. And more than one city, is  finding difficulty in compiling a voters' list in accordance with the statute qualifications.  Section 6 of the Municipal Clauses  Act provides that the qualifications  of a voter shall be "any male" or female, being a British subject of the  full age of 21 years, , who is the  OWNER of real estate of the assessed  value of not less than $100, or who  is the representative * * * of an  incorpoeated company, which is the  ASSESSED OWNER of lands, ,or of  improvements ��������������������������� of lands, of assessed  value of not less than $100, situated  within" the Municipality."  Section 10 of the same Act, provides that _ a voter in any township  or district municipality shall he "the  ASSESSED OWNER.of lands'or improvements of not less, than $100."  Tn view of this slight difference in  the wording .of the Act in relation to  "owner" and "assessed owner," it  has been held-in"the-past by the City  Clerks generally that there could not  be any distinction drawn between an  assessed company owner and an assessed individual owner, and Municipal Voters' Lists have been' made  up of .these assessed owners of property.-. But the decision of the Court  is against this. . An assessed owner  of "property, ,i. e.,-a person owning a  property under an agreement of sale,  is not the real' owner and therefore  his or her name cannot be entered (on  the voters' list.  The question as to whether or not  this was the intention of the fram'ers  of the law docs not enter into the  case. The law says he or she. must  be the "owner" of the land,'which  means the registered owner. " Therefore any owner of land under an  agreement' of sale is not to be rec:  ognized as the real owner.  -^Undei^this-la-w-^a^hardship^results"-  to the citizen whose real interest is  in thc town. When a person sells a  piece of land, he sells his interest in  it, and the person buying the land,  buys thc interest in it. The land  and the interest are his. They cannot  belong to the man who sold them.  All responsibility for subsequent taxation nr improvements.rests.upon.thc  buyer. The property is his so long  as he lives up to the terms of the  agreement. Thon why should he be  deprived of the right of voting on all  questions and n?oney by-laws thc passage of which works for or against  him ? It seems entirely wrong to  deprive thc person whose real interest  is in the property of the rights of a  property holder. This surely could  not have been the intention of thc  framcrs of the law. The buyer may  purchase on an agreement of sale  covering a period of a year, or two  years or three years, an'd the seller,  whose interest in the property has  ceased, may remove to other fields,  and yet the buyer���������������������������the person whose  interest is in the property and the  town���������������������������is not allowed to represent it  at the polls. At the same time an  incorporated company���������������������������the assessed  owner the same as the individual  who has purchased under an agreement of sale���������������������������is permitted to exercise  the franchise of a propertyholder.  If ever there was good reason for  thc exercise of the power of the Gov-^  ernmcnt-in-Council it will bo found in  this matter, ancl we believe the press  of the Province should take up the  matter and urge the law be changed  Bank of Montreal  Established 1817  Capital, $14,400,000 Rest, $12,000,000  Undivided Profits,  $699,969.88  Honorary Present, Rt.

That  is what the hens are dioing at the  Hastings Park egg-laying contest,  and that is what they will be doing  for a year. There are 40 pens. In  each pen there are six hens, or a  total of 240, and all hens. It is a  sort of gathering of gallinae suffragettes. These ladies of the family  gallinae are going to show what they  can do in a year by their lonesome.  "Egg-laying contests are more or  less common in Australia and New  Zealand, also in England, but never  before has one been held on this continent of North America.  "In this contest at Hastings Park  on Friday the heavyweight classes  are fairly well represented at the exhibition, or endurance trial,' or egg-  laying Marathon-, or. whatever it may  be called. In this class there are  Buff Orpingtons, Buff and Barred  Plymouth Rocks, Columbian; Silver  Laced, Silver., Pencilled, Partridge  and'-White Wyandottes, Rhode-Island  Reds - and- Anconas. In the light-,  weights are .Buff, White and Brown  Leghorns.  Here is. thc hens' menu: Morning,  wheat; noon, .oats aiid beef scraps;'  night, cracked corn qr wheat; once" a  week a" mash of grain and meat  scraps, arid all the time all the grit;  cracked shells ancl charcoal they care  to assimilate.  Mr. Terry, a prominent poultryman  thought that this part of British Columbia had the best climate in the  world for poultry raising. He knew  one man who had cleared $6,000 in a  year out of 900 hens.  Vancouver, each*week, imports 75,-  000 dozen eggs. ' These might as well  be produced in British Columbia.

The work of dust prevention divides  itself, according to the aims and methods employed, under the two heads of  permanent" and temporary. The first  method, and the most effective, is to so  I Killed  j ditio'i  'I hi-   not   only   prevents   tho   tar   from  This question of giving tho tarred  surface a twelve hours' rest involves  the difficulty of interference with the  C.'ifiic. In r.iany cases, the county authorities, after spreading thc tar, throw  o\er it a lop dressing and permit traffic  to siisiko immediate me of the road,  thoroughly iriiprcgnaiing tho road surface. Imt it results in an immense  amount of inconvenience nnd unsightly  disfigurement to automobiles and other  swiftly moving vehicles. Tho best way  out of 1ho" difiiculty is to treat one-half  of the roadway at a time, reserving the  other half for traffic Even where a  road i.-_ so narrow that traffic would  have to bo. slowed down to a walk, the  users would willingly submit to this  lessor inconvenience in order to avoid  the discomfort resulting from present  methods. In cases where ir, is impossible to close one-half of thc roadway,  care should bo taken to apply sufficient  sand or crushed stone to prevent the  tar from sticking lo the wheels of  vehicles; but this, it must not be forgotten, will spoil somewhat the quality  of the bond secured on the road surface.  In applying thc tar in new construction, the road should be formed and consolidated without the use of water. The  voids should be filled with fine stone  chips free from dust, and care must be  taken not to roll the surface too heavily  or tho Kir will not adhere properly.  Uot tar may bo applied through all  of ihe eo.nsos a������������������ they are laid and  rolled, but occasionally the upper course  only is so lieafed. After larriug, a top  dressing of material is laid on and the  surface is thoroughly rolled, The tar  spreading may be done either by hand,  in which case au excess above what is  necessary -will probably be used, or it  may be spread on by an apparatus  mounted on wheels, the tar being discharged under pressure at the..road. surface by specially designed spraying nozzles. ' '        ���������������������������  if the work be properly done, a tarred road, after being open to traffic for  a shoiL while, takes on an appearance  closely resembling asphalt, being smooth  and firm, practically noiseless, and more  resilient, than asphalt. It is largely  waterproof, practically dustless, and  the resistance to traction is less than  that of an untreated macadam road.  io give us his name.

So u.j kept him with us tho rest of that  winter aud the next summer, and wheu  late that fall we decided to move our  camp up to ihe Devil's Hack, he had  become a fixture and. of couise, had to  go along.  .Much gold had been struck over there  on the Devil's Back. ft was a wild  region���������������������������even for that country���������������������������the  canons were deeper, (he rocks sharper,  the cliffs more frowninc than those or'  any field we had ycl, tackled.

But we were disgusted "with our pooi run of luck, and  so decided to move at once.  We obeyed sullenly and hurried on.  It was growing colder every minute  and our clothing was frozen so hard  'that-: we could hardly move.

Wo. would  sit open-mouthed staring at him in an  awed, scared sort of way.  Hut auer two days of it .Jack rebelled. "Windy." he said, sternly,  "you'll have to let up on us critters.

Luckily the current bore u.s close in  near the bank of Windy's side, and he.  grinning contentedly, yanked us out one  by ono as we came blubbering and  splashing along. Lined up there shivering on the bank we were a dismal-looking set as we ruefully watched part of  our stores go bobbing down the creek  and finally disappear into the month of  a black canon.

For  coming down upon us was a great mass  of snow and  earth and  rock  from the  mountain's top.      Wc were in its path  and there was no time for flight.    The  avalanche was moviug like an express  train'with ihe president of the road on  board.      To increase our troubles, the  blizzard, which had threatened all   the  morning, now burst upon us with blinding fury.      The snow whirled so thick  and fast, that wc could not sec-two feet  beyond our faces.      By a sort  of animal instinct we clasped  one another's  hands"a.s we waited dumbly for the on-  rushing mass to  crush us.      But  even-  then Windy couldn't hold his chin.  He  began to tell about the great avalanches  of history that had buried whole cities  and snuffed out thousands of lives.   He  was  up  to  his'cars  in  an  explanation  of the  whole business" when  the thing  hit us plumb in the centre.

And grim irony of it all, beside each  hearlh was a pile or dry fir wood! Out  on the dead mules was plenty of grub,  but there were no matches, and we were  freezing.  Stiff, sore and helpless, we all began  another desperate search for matches,  and  every  man  of us wished  Wo could hear him tramping around  trying to keep his blood going. I pitied  the poor cuss just theii. To think how  unkind fate had. .been to-him by placing a giant education in a'pygmy brain.  In fifteen or twenty minutes he rejoined  us. He was-slinking like a, leaf, but  that old, self-satisfied grin was on his  face.   .- ,,". y:'-':"-  Gentlemen," said lie, looking out at  the ' whirling snow. "This is a ningmri-  c-ont blizzard."  The blizzard certainly was full grown  by this time. The guloh where the cabin  stood was narrow, and the fine snow  pourod in thore hy the carload, but none  of it stopped.,. The wind sucked down  along the walls nnd swept thc suov/ out  into (he valley beyond. But even as  v.e stood shivering by the window the  snow suddenly  i-oased,  "There's a cliance yet," said Jack,  hopefully, limping to the door.  We followed him, but 0110 glance killed our hope. Above the canon was completely blocked by the avalunchc. Bo-  low, across tno valley, was a wall of  snow fifty feet high. In our weak,  frozen condition wc could scale neither.  Cursing our luck, wo stumbled bock  into tl-    cabin.  Though it had stopped snowing, the  wind increased and it grew rapidly colder. But despite all, that confounded  Windy continued to smile, and he  cheered us'with- tho information that  death from freezing was not so bad.  after all. We .mid but little attention  to him, for we were kept busy shuffling  round and round tho room.' To stop  meant sleep and death. To help keep  awake Windy suggested (hat'wc bring  in our, stuff. . We. did so slowly and  with many twinges of pain, for every  man of us was bruised aud bleeding in  half a dozen plncen.  -"'Where's that olive oil?"- asked'  Jack, when lu: had brought in the last-  load. "Let's drink if. There's a good  swallow apiece'and it,will help'keep us  warm."  Windy's-jaw dropped and a guilty  look crept info his big, round eyes.  "I���������������������������1���������������������������drank it myself, gentlemen,"  he said, sheepishly.  Jack looked hard at him a moment,-  then he gave a grant of disgust as  Windy  turned  toward  the-window.  Wo ate a fev/" mouthfuls'of thc icy-  food and tried to hearten one anothor.-  but as the afternoon wore away and the'  shadows began  to enter the gulch  we  geew silent and our weary steps dragged slower and slower until at last-we  al] settled to the floor aud gazed at one-  another dumbly.    But even then Windy  did not give up.'   He pounded us, jerked  us and swore atus until every man .was  on his feet again,    lie told us.to keep  heart,   for   likely   the"'" weal her -would -  moderate in.a.day or.two" But we curs-1  ed  him as wc- once" more took up our  painful march about, the'.room.

We starod'at him like a pack of  dumb fools.  -_.''GorilIonK.il,-il im a well-known scientific fact," Tie continued, assuming a  dramatic pose, "Unit under cortain conditions the non-drying oils will generate  fiio by spoiita-neon.. combunlion.

In "Hardware and Metal" Canada's  national magazine devoted to the interests of the businesses indicated by  its name, the following appears: "Andrew Fulton, who conducts a large  hardware and implement business at  Enderby, B. C, has recently completed a fine new store, which was  designed after his own ideas, and  which he considers a model construction for a business such as his.  "It is 50 feet wide by 110 feet long,  this giving a large floor space for  display an'd storage purposes. Instead of having a 'separate warehouse  for implements and another for  stoves, as is so frequently the case,  Mr. Fulton centres his "entire business  under one roof, and he has arranged  his lay-out so as to provide the maximum of convenience to his patrons  and store staff.  "With a view to displaying his  goods in the most imposing and convenient shape, Mr. Fulton arranged  for a specially large main show room  It is 50 feet wide (the whole width  of the store) by 85 feet deep, and the  office is situated in the centre; at the  rear of the show room.  "The ceiling, which is 14 feet high,  is finished with a beautiful pattern of  metal ceiling, and the walls are covered with the same material. When  lighted up at night the effect is very  fine, and it helps materially to improve the appearance of the stock.  "In the daytime, light is admitted  to the building from front and rear  only, as there are no windows on the  sides. One side is shelved the full  length of the building, and the . other  side is equipped-. with a" row of tool  and implement racks.  "One advantage of the" large" main  show,room, and an advantage which  Mr. Fulton foresaw..when he planned'J  the building,   "is" that the fine space"  available naturally invites people' to '  step .into .the store and look around.  Customers    seem" to enjoy the privilege of examining the goods at "close  range, "and Mr.   Fulton has -actually i  found ithat^a great many sales result,  from " these-   desultory ' ��������������������������� inspections, '.  without   talcing    up the time of any  salesman.  "Directly behind the main show  room is' a warehouse 25 feet deep,  with an elevator in the corner, 14x7  feet in size. This is large enough to  take up or down a wagon set up  ready for use. As a further convenience, a large doorway at the elevator makes it possibe to load and unload from and to the elevator without any heavy lifting.  "On the second floor there is a  well-equipped tinshop, 40x25 feet in  size, where Mr. Fulton's contract  work is attended to. The balance of  the second story is used for storage,  and as a show room for heavy machinery.  "One thing which helps to give the  display in Mr. Fulton's show rooms  a very imposing appearance is tbe  group ol sample buggies, stoves, furnaces and similar goods. The large  roomy premises are especially adapted for showing of bulky articles,  such as heating, goods and implements, and Mr. Fulton has undoubtedly designed a store plan which is  ideal for handling these lines in connection with a general hardware business.'  -. "The outside of the building is very  neatly finished with galvanized rock-  faced siding and galvanized cornice.  Thus, taking "into consideration the  metal ceiling and sidewalls of the  store interior, Mr. Fulton has made  full use-of this modern building material, which is becoming so popular  among retail merchants in all lines.  "The general idea back of this  building plan .was Mr. Fulton's own,  and .was based upon his experience as  a"- hardware and implement dealer.  "I believe "it ^will prove, the right  kind of store for'a\ hardware and implement dealer 'to. build,'''says Mr..  Fulton. ' 'Even ' in" a .small - town,. I-  could .' never'-. see" any Vadvantage "in"  having a little-store room'and Half a  dozen - warehouses'- scattered over the  town; , This'invariably'results in'confusion and loss of time to both, "customers and selling" staff. - I believe in  having one   business stand,7and hav  ing all your goods there, arranged in  thc most convenient-manner."  EARL GREY WELL PLEASED  Liverpool, Oct. 21.���������������������������Earl Grey and  party were given a royal welcome on  their arrival here yesterday. The  party were received by the Lord May-  being invited to give a public mes-  or of Liverpool. His excellency, on  sage, said:       ������������������  "It is impossible to , be too sanguine as to the future development of  Canada.- It is a splendid country and  it is going ahead as fast as anyone  could wish. The more it increases  in strength the greater will be the  accession of strength to the empire.  I am glad to be back in England  after seven happy years in the land  of open sunshine, and although glad  to be- back among those who are  carrying practically single-handedthe  whole burden of the British Empire,  I confess I - was sorry to leave the  Dominion' of Canada.  '���������������������������'As to the Canadian climate, I can  only say I thoroughly enjoyed it in  summer or winter, and am not sure  that before' the present winter is over  I shall not wish to be in Canada  again."

DOPING GASOLINE  A real estate agent of out acquaintance used a light runabout machine,  and says he can get about' eighteen to  twenty-one miles out of a gallon of gasoline, but that he finds if he puts an  ounce of laudanum to each five gallons  of gasoline, he will increase the mileage per gallon from twenty to twenty-  five per cent.

Thc use''"of nitro compounds, such for  instance, as-picric acid, have been suggested.

The fuel carried by  motor cars should of course be as rich  as possible, in calorific energy, and, a  compound that can be provided for addition to thc fuel charge .of an auto,  mobile or motor boat should find a ready  sale, if it can increase" the mileage per  gallon or can reduce the expense, without adding fo the dangeis of operation.

IBHOHMBBMHRMI  'A  f  I  -���������������������������     ifJT  f:  \  103 ENDERBY PRESS AND WALKER'S WEEKLY"  ,v  Why a Flying Machine Flies  An aeroplane being any flat or slightly curved surface, propelled-.through the  air, an inquiring mind may well ask,  observes that careful student of: aviation W'aldemar Ka.ompf.crt: Why docs  it stay aloft? Why docs it not fall? It  is considerably heavier than air. It is  the air pressure beueath the plane,  and thc motion of tbe plane, explains  Mr. Kaumpffert, that keep it up.  A balloon can remain stationary over  a given spot in a calm, but an aeroplane must constantly move if it is to  remain, in the air. The monoplanes  and biplanes of Bloriot, Gurtiss, and the  Wrights arc somewhat, in the position  of a skater on thin ice. The skater  must move fast enough to reach n new  section of ice before ho falls; tbe aeroplane must move fast enough to reach  a. new section of air before it falls.  Hence, the aeroplane is constantly  struggling with gravitation. Ancl Mr.  Waldemar Kacmpffcrt observes further in the course of his elucidation:  ''���������������������������The simplest and most familiar example of an aeroplane is the kito of  our' boyhood days. Wo all remember,  how wc kept' it aloft by holding it  against the wind or by running with  it if there happened to be only.a gentle  breeze. When the wind stopped altogether or the string broke, thc kite  fell. Above all things it was uecessary  to hold tho kite's surface toward tbe  ' ' wind,���������������������������an end which we accomplished  with a string.  "The eagle is an animated kite without a string; it keeps its outspread  wings to thc wind by muscular power.  .If we can lind a substitute for the  string, some device in other words  which will enable us to 'hold the kite  in the proper direction, we_have in-  yentcd* a flying machine.' The pull or  thrust of an engine-driven propeller is  the accepted substitute for the string  of a kite and the muscles of an eagle.  "If only these simple principles, were  involved   in  a   solution  of the-age-old  .    problem   of  artificial  flight,  aeroplanes  ��������������������������� would  have  skimmed the sair  decades  ago.  Many  other  things  must'"bo con-  ,  'sidercd besides mere propelling machinery.

The .weight  " or falling tendency is'theoretically concentrated'iu a point known as the cen-  -tre of gravity.  "Opposed to this gravi-  - tative tendency is thc upward pressure  '"  of  the   air  against  the  under   surface  of the plane, which cfl'ect is thcorcti-  __..-.-. lly_ co n (ie ii trat...dJn-a-poiiU--know_n_as  the centre of air pressure. Gravitation  (weight) is constant; the air pressure,  because of. the niany pull's and gusts  of which even a zephyr is composed, is  decidedly inconstant. Jlence, while the  centre of gravity remains in approximately the same place,.the centre of air  pressure is as restless as a drop of  quicksilver on an unsteady glass plate1.  "Tho whole art of maintaining the  side-to-sidc balance of au aeroplane  ���������������������������consists-iir keeping "the-centre of gravity and the contrc of air pressure oil  tho same vertical line. If the centre of  air pressure should wander too far  away from that line of coincidence, the  aeroplane is capsized. The upward air  pressure being greater than the falling  tendency and having been all thrown  fco one side, the aeroplane is naturally  upset.  "'Obviously thero arc two ways of  maintain ing side-to-sidc balance,���������������������������tbe  one bv constantly shifting thc centre  of gravity into coincidence with tho  errant centre of a'ir pressure; thc other  by constantly shifting thc centre of air  pressure into coincidence with thc centre'of gravity.  "The first method (that of bringing  thc centre of gravity into alignment  with Iho centre of air pressure) involves ceaseless, Hash-like* movements  on the part of the aviator; for by shifting bis body ho shifts the "centre of  gravity. It happened that one of the  first modern experimenters with the  aeroplane met a tragic death after he  had succeeded in making over two  thousand short flights in a gliding- machine of bis own invontion, simply because be was not quick enough in so  throwing his weight that the centres  of air pressure and gravity coincided.  Tie was an enigneer named Otto Lilionthal, and he was killed in 1896. . . .  Crude .is Lilionthal's machine undoubtedly was, it startled tho world when its  first flights were made. It taught the  scientific investigator of the problem  inuchthat he had never even suspected,  and  laid   tho   foundation  for  later re-  - searches."  Octane Chanute. a French engineer  res.ident in the United States, continued the work of the ill-fated Lilionthal.  Jiealizi ng thc inherent danger of a  glider in which the operator must adapt  himself to the changing centre of air  pressure with lightning-like rapidity, he  dovis-od an apparatus in which the  centre of air pressuro was made to return into coincidence with the centre  of gravitj',���������������������������thc second of thc two ways  of maintaining side-to-sidc balance.  Thus Chanute partly removed thc perilous necessity of indulging in aerial  gymnastics. In his gliding-machines  Fho lips*of the planes, when struck hy  a gust of wind, would fold slightly  backward', thereby curtailing the tendency of the centre of air pressure to  shift.  "Chanute built six motorlcss, man-  carrying gliders, witb throe of which  several thousand short flights were successfully undertaken. Thc best results  were obtained with an apparatus consisting of two superposed planes, a construction which bad been previously-  adopted by Lilionthal. lt remained for  the Wright Brothers to provide a more  perfect mechanism for controlling the  movement of the centre of air pressure.  "The principle of sitting or lying  still iu thc aeroplane and, by means of  mechanical devices, bringing the centre  of air pressure back into alignment  .with tho centre ot gravity tis now followed by every designer of aeroplaiios,  The old, dangerous method of shifting  weights is quite abandoned. The greatest contribution made by the Wright  Brothers to thc art of flying was that  of providing a trustworthy mechanism  for causing the centre of air pressure  to return into coincidence , with thc  centre   of  gravity.   ���������������������������  "The aeroplane must be balanced not  only from side to side, but fore and aft  as well. The same necessity exists in  the "old-fashioned, "single-surface kite.  To give it the necessary fore-and-aft  stability, we used to adorn it with a  long tail of knotted ,strips of rags. -If  the tail was not heavy or long enough,  tbe kite dived erratically and sometimes mot its destruction by colliding  with a tree. To'insure longitudinal stability, many aeroplane flying-machines  are "-'similarly provided with a tail,  which consists generally of one or mores  horizontal plane ^surfaces. Some aero-  pianos, however, are tailless, among  them tho earlier "Wright machines. Usually, they 'are less stable than the  tailed variety..--     -   "-    "'- ���������������������������;   ���������������������������'  - "Jn order' to ���������������������������relievedthc aviator.of  the necessity of, more or .less.incessantly  :maiiipulating"'-lcvers, -which,.control centres of-'aif pressure,- many inventors'  have tried .to provide aeroplanes -.with  devices'which will perforin that-'task  automatically.

"CATHCHING WILD BEASTS..1 I"  _Tho first' step' in the- training and  taming of a ^wild beast is 'obviously  toTcapture -itT It is-an .easy task to  shoot wild animals for sport, compared  to the difficulties connected with their  capture', not only alive,-but uninjured.  'An injured animal is rarely^any use.  The injuries, added to thc frenzy of a  wild uuimal when first caught, leave  _yory_ 1 ittlo__chancc_o ILhis^ suryi.ying_.tho  was killed at once, but tho lioness was  only slightly wounded, and the next  instant made her spring, and was on  the hunter and with one blow of her  paw ripped him in a horrible manner  from the shoulder to the waist.  One of the men then shot the brute  through tbe bead and ended and encounter that in another few seconds  would have proved fatal to Pellet, who,  as it was, was badly injured, and was  unuablc to move for several days. Behind the rock thc men found three  young cubs; it became then perfectly  evident that they belonged to thc lioness and hor mate, who bad been steadily  tracking the hunters throughout the  day.  T'h0 three cubs were captured; one  diod on its way to the coast, but the  other two survived aud eventually came  into niy possession.  It may happen that, when a lion-hunt  has been formed, an elephant or a  rhinoceros appears; and oither of those  animals in their wild state prcscuts a-  difficult problem. A rogue elephant  will put.  lo   rout.  country of men I'or some little time to  co me.  One  Western  perate  elephant.  i whole crowd of lion hunters  and   clear   that  part   of   the  of    _ my  Africa  ordeal, even for a few flays; aud should  hc do so, tbe chances are that hc will  remain in such a miserable state for  so long that he will not repay the cost  of capture, feeding, an'd transportation.  The chief danger lies, not so much  when face to face with the animals,  but when hunting and tracking tbem.  The wariest and most careful hunter  may be tracking an animal, and at the  same time be tracked by thc very ani-  nial--he_i.s..seoking, wholmay .spring-on  him at any moment. This happened  in the case of a hunter whom I had  commissioned to catch sonic lions for  mc some years ago in the-Nubian dcs-.  arts. The man was a Canadian named'  Pellet, and a  most experienced  hunter.  Thore is no more ticklish or dangerous task than tracking lions in the vast  Nubian deserts. The scorching sun  pours down with such force that few  men can stand if. The effect on the  eyes is blinding. Thore is little or no  shade, witb the exception of occasional  small palm-trees and bushes, while the  jutting rocks affords splendid hiding-  places' for fho king of beasts.  Pcllcl for a whole day followed up  what ho rightly judged lo be tbo tracks  of a lioness.. At the end of thc second  day the'tracks came suddenly to an end  in a place devoid apparently of any  cover except tt jutting piece of rock  about half a milo to tho right. Tbe  hunter at onco recognized the danger  of his position; behind tho rock was  probably the very animal hc had been  tracking and who most likely had been  tracking liim.  It was coming on towards sundown  nnd the hunter with his two inch decided at once to investigate tho state  of affairs behind the rock, and, if it  sheltered a lion or lioness or both, to  capture them or kill them then and  there.  Tho men approached the rock in a  semi-circle, when within about fifty  yards of it they heard a terrific roar  behind them, and. facing about, saw a  splendid lion and lioness coming  straight at them. There wa3 nothing  for it but to fire on tho brutes; tho lion  hunting parties in  had . once a des-  encouritor with a rogue  The huge beast came  upon thorn in thc night; ho trampled  two of the men to death and then the  rest lied in all directions to save their  lives. Thc elephant wrecked the whole  encampment in a few minutes and then  started on a roving expedition after  the hunters. The brute was eventually  killed, and thc hunters, after undergoing great hardships, returned to the  coast.  Tn capturing animals alive, it is generally considered better to get yomng  ones. A number of natives form parties and then go in different directions,  until they come upon the spoor of either  a lioness or young lions. They'then  signal to one another hy peculiar'calls,  ancl, meeting together, follow up thc  trail  until they find the la-ir.  Should;they find that tbe lair contains' a lioness and cubs thoy do all  they, can to.induce tbe lioness to tome  LORD STRATHCONA  ��������������������������� Tho ' above, cut ������������������hs a very small' reproduction 7of, "a , pen -and- ink ' drawing  by;,W.\(,\ Northway 'of-this.city.

This sounds simple,' but a lioness'with  cubs is one or' the most savage of animals, and she will tight, to thc last.  Having killed the lioness, there is still  danger with the cubs; for lion cubs aro  fic.-ce. _.stroiig,_.'iii(l_vicioiis��������������������������� creatur <_{_,_  ind can tear and bite with their claws  nnd   teeth  in  a  terrible manner.  One plan is to throw nets or a piece  of strong .-aekcloth over the young  ones, in which they become entangled.  The men then run forwaid, pick theiii  up,-and carry them oil', and they arc  extremely husky if they escape with a  few scratches only, for the cubs,  though entangled in the net. are able  to  make an  exceedingly lively  fight.   When .the  cubs  arc- captured,-goats  are obtained in full milk and the cubs  are fed by them until they are past thc  first teething stage and able to eat  meat. In some cases spaniels tire provided as foster mothers, and although  at-first the dogs are uneasy at, their  somewhat rough and savage foster  children, they generally grow fond of  them, arul the affection is more often  I ban not returned by thc cubs.  For catching full-grown lions large  traps of various forms,are used. One  trap is square; one of the sides lifting  up on a spring like the old-fashioned  mouse trap. Tin's trap is baited with  a piece of fresh meat, and, as soon as  the lion has entered the trap, tbo door  shuts down, and he is a prisoner. But  lions arc shrewd and cunning, like all  thc cat tribe, and many a man has lost  bis life by going to look at a bailed  trap.  1 havo known a case where a lion, becoming suspicious, resisted the temptation of the fresh meat, and lay down  in hiding and kept watch. When thc  rash hunters came to sec whether the  bait had been touched, thc lion sprang  on tbem, preferring fresh man-meat to  the bait inside the trap.  In India thc natives catch tigers by  a peculiar method. The leaves of tbe  sycamore and the large plantain are  smeared with a sticky substance and  left in tho trail of tho tiger. Thc moment the animal puts his foot on one  of those leaves he immediately rubs  it over his bead in order to get rid of  it.  This naturally makes his head sticky  ancl uncomfortable, which causes him  to  roll on  the ground,    By doing this  he becomes covered with the leaves,  ar.d when he is mad with rage the  natives come cautiously up and cover  Mm  with strong nets and sacking.  Tn catching snakes, various devices  are used, but all methods are attended  with a certain amount of danger. One  way is to set the grass on fire in a  circle where it is known that snakes  have their hiding places. This will  always bring them out and then naturally rush from the fire. As they rush  out they are caught in large nets  mounted on wooden hoops, to which is  attachod a large bag.  As the reptiles are generally stupefied with tho smoke it is not"difficult  to those accustomed to it to drop them  into the bag. They are then carriod  to tho packing station, where they are  packed in boxes aud sent direct to  Europe. "While on tho journey, neither  food nor water is giyon thorn; the  chief things arc warmth and freedom  from damp.  Cold is dangerous to all snakes; it  not only makes them dull aud torpid,  but causes them to have mouth disease,  from which they never recover; and, as  some of them are extremely valuable,  this point is very important/  Many instances have been known  whero a whole collection of valuable  snakes have becn^i'ound dead on arrival.  An  logical  AQUATIC PLANTS  aquatic environment creates bio-  con'ditious very different from  those accompanying a terrestrial environment.  The differing organs of the plant  forced to live iu water show how necessity affects tbe habits and manifestations of life/ In the' case of water  plants the assimilating and* reproductive organs arc displayed cither below  the water or on its surface. Amphibious plants draw nourislimemnt from  tbe air. Assimilation in that case may  take place all over the plant, arid even  the loaves may absorb liquid and act aa  roots. If such a plant has a root the  organ seems to 'have been given to it  simply as a means of preserving its  equilibrium in the water. Plants  wholly aquatic have to draw iu nourishment and breathe not only through  thoir leaves and the parts that reach  the air, but through all the submerged  parts capable of absorbing or emitting  oxygen and carbonic-acid-*) *  The submerged plant finds it difficult " to procure oxygen. This is' not  pleasant, because the plant must have  oxygen; and,-while water is richer iu  carbonic acid than air, it is poorer in  dissolved oxygon, and in still water thc  diffusion of gases is very slow. The  natural breathing apparatus of thc  wholly restricted water plant is 'not  ample;'therefore, the-plant is obliged  by its, necessities, to ..'provide* for itself,  in different" ways. -- ��������������������������� There are water  plants which, exert themselves *>-to err-  large. ~_ their -' surface^measurements'  -Wherever :rthcjr' leaves 'come-in^eontaot  with- the.' water "-they Hiirow, 'out'' fine,  h'air-likc: filaments���������������������������capillary- .blades  wiUi ''exceedingly <thin skins.

In  thc case of( the nias and some other  deep-water plants, however, thc plant's  fructification is accomplished under  water. In thc case of plants whose  fi notification is difficult nature gives  other means of reproduction and extension, such as fragmentation. The  long and helpless stem is cut'or brokon  by. a_pa.ssing-finli,- by-n-strong-well or  surge, or by the screw or paddle-wheel  of a hoaj,. Then Wcry dispersed  fragment draws life from the water,  and, taking up its work, asserts its importance in tho otcrnal plan. One fragment of an Klodin canadensis, which m  some mysterious way escaped from a  pond in America, found its way to  Prance and over the sjreater part of  western Kurope, obstructing navigation  and forcing some nations lo pay out  large sums of money in fighting it.  Amphibious plants not only run their  roofs out in all directions in tho mud,  bnt" emit feelers from all sides. Many  water plants spread so fast that thoy  fill or drain the lakes. Water absorbs  light, and as the depth increases it becomes more difficult for somo of the  plant to assimilate it. Uut tbo majority of the wholly submerged water  plants arc so adapted to a fain light  that they die if the light is'too strong.  One specoes of Thamnium lives at a  depth of sixty meters under water. In  aquatic as well as in terrestrial plants  weak light produces a development of  the vegetative organs and a reduction  of thc reproductive organs. The vegetative organs stretch out in dark water  as planets stretch out whon growing in the shade. .Not infrequently a  curious adaptation takes place in the  floating leaf plants���������������������������particularly iu  tho water chestnut, and, eventually,  every part of tho leaf obtains the same  amount of light, because the plant so  elongates its center as to give every  leaf an  equal chance.  Certain forms of wator woods live  without much light and with as little  warmth.

The plant feeds on itn  aquatic  environment.  In   tbe   obtaining  of  its   ai-;  supply  the  water plant  depends largely  upon  the   wind.       The   currents   an'd* waves  due to thc action of the wind facilitate  tho diffusion  of the gases of the   air,  arid their influence is manifested in tbe  luxuriance  of  the  flora   of  hiked   near  thoir affluents.     On the other hand, the  swell  of large  bodies of water or the  impact of strong currents i.s so serious  an   obstacle   that   plants   witb   floating  leaves seldom venture beyond the skeltered   regions of. the  lakes.       Uut  thc  flexibility of fhe stems of most amphibious  plants  created   to  vegetate  "ou  the watery borders of the  kingdom  of  the  wind"   makes  it  possible  for  the  plants   to   re.-dst   tbe  assaults   of   tom-  po.sK      .Some, aided in their propagation by insects, draw a more direct profit  from   these  assistants.

It is really a connecting branch  of. the, Simplon, eliminating tho long * -  detour now-necessary-to rcucif lbat~tiin-~  nol.

'Though  fho Lootschberg tunnel is only a del ail  in Ihc roule, if is a very important one,  not only in shortening the journey from  London to Italy, but also in contributing still more to the revenue of the  French railways, compared with the  German, as carriers between the north  an'1 south of Kurope.  ���������������������������y.'  o  WHY HE TREMBLED  A dotachmont of British soldiers wa*������������������  about to attack a tribe of robel Indian  tribesmen, who awaited them drawn up  in battle order.

Such an aggression upon  the quietness of the day of rest  should not be allowed to go without  question. It is only fair to the company that if the question is to be  raised it should be done at the outset. It is hard to see the necessity  or demand for such a change, and it  will no doubt mean as it does on  other trains, seven days labor in tbe  week to train hands and other employees of the company. Thc operation of work trains and freight  trains on Sundays is also due for  consideration. lt may not be wise  to sacrifice everything to the profits  of the company. In my humble  opinion,- if the people of the Okanagan act in their own best interests,  they will preserve so far as possible  the freedom of the day of rest from  commercialism. When' the ' Valley  surrenders the quietness of 'the Sabbath it gives up one 'of its greatest  assets and attractions as. a place of  home life. It might be more acceptable to the,, people of the Valley  to 'double the passenger service on  week days, to which we seem to have  some reasonable claim.  DUNCAN CAMPBELL,  Enderby, Oct. 25th, 1911.  JA despatch from Lonxion, Ont.,  tells of the brutal hazing of fifteen  freshmen by the second year students  of the Western Medical School there.  The freshmen were bound hand and  foot at the school and driven to Te-  cumseh Park in a hay rack, and  mauled on the journey by forty  sophomores. Each was then given a  shampoo from a can of molasses an'd  glue. -, They were then sheared bald  with horse clippers. Later they  were covered with shoe blacking ancl  plaster of Paris. To conclude the  performance, their shoes were removed and the freshmen rushed over  a cinder track. Several lively scraps  ensued but tbe freshmen were outnumbered two to one by their opponents. Is it any wonder our colleges turn out more intellectual monkeys than men.  ACCIDENTAL    SHOOTING  "MADAME   SHERRY'  The first really big attraction that  Enderby has had the pleasure of seeing in the theatrical line will be the  phenomenally successful musical comedy "Madame Sherry," which Messrs.  Sawyer are playing here next Friday  evening, November 3rd. "Madame  Sherry" is a n'ovelty in every way.  Its comedy is bright and refreshing,  ancl the story is much more plausible  ancl consistent than is found in the  ordinary musical farce; its music is  not only enchanting, bub every number is the result of some situation in  the comedy. In points of production  cast, chorus and special orchestra,  "Madame Sherry" represents the last  word in perfection. -'- No musical  comedy in a dozen years has scored  such a hit as "Madame Sherry." Ite  musical gems, especially "Ev'ry  Little Movement Has a Meaning All  Its Own," have captivated the world,  ancl it is sure to prove the distinct  hit of many years when presented at  - the Opera House next week.  A distressing shooting accident is reported from Armstrong. Herman  Empke and his 16-year-old son were  out shooting on Saturday. The  father was walking in the leach The  son, believing he had taken all the  shells out of the magazine, was carelessly following behind. Suddenly  the gun was discharged, the 'ball hitting, the father -behind the ear and  killing him almost instantly. The  funeral took place Tuesday afternoon.
