A meeting of the Enderby Conservative Association was held in the  Bell block, Tuesday evening, and resolutions passed to be presented before  the B. C. Association meeting to be  held in New Westminster to-morrow.  Mr. and Mrs. J. G. Cook came in  from Calgary this week and took  possession of their recent purchase in  the district. Mr. Gill, whose ranch  they have purchased, left for the Old  Country on Tuesday. Before leaving,  however, he showed his confidence in  Enderby's future by arranging with  Messrs.

Thc  affair was one of the most pleasant  of church festivities, and was attended by a very large crowd, both af-  terno.on and evening. Mrs. Marris,  who had charge of the Flower Stall,  wishes to thank all those who so  kindly contributed towards that part  of the affair.  The Walker Press issued a new idea  in advertising last week that is likely  to help considerably in making Enderby known outside the Valley. It  consisted of a special number of the  Enderby Press, prepared by Messrs.  Harvey & Rodie, containing brief  write-ups of the district, together  with a selection of property buys  from their land list. The ordinary  advertisements of the Enderby Press  were all given a place in the publication, so   that   the business standing  accepted  Thc offering amounted to $10.70.  A vote of thanks   was tendered to  a   regulation   -track,    and   set   the  world's record.  Mr. F. V. Moffet returned this week  from a trip to the coast and through  thc Northwest. He tells us that he  was surprised to hear in the hotels  wherever he went comment on the  fact that the world's greatest pacing  stallion was now owned in "Enderby,  B. C."

This  bird was thus only three months old  when it was found more than 500 miles  from its birthplace. A second member  of the brood was shot on the Trent near  Retford, Lincolnshire, in January, 1911,  having worn the ring for a year and  a half.  Five lapwings marked as chicks in  the north-east of Scotland, in the.-sum-  mer of 1910, were shot respectively in  Counties Tippcrary, Roscommon, Cork,  and Limerick. .Ireland, and in"Southern  Portugal during the winter 1910-1931.  A song-thrush, one of a brood marked  as chicks in the nest at Skene, Aberdeenshire, in early June, 1910, was shot  near Leiria. Portugal, in early Novem--  ber of the same year. The two localities are about 1,250 English milos apart  in direct over-seas line, and this thrush  thus made a journey of prabably' more  than .1,500 milos within the, half-year of  its life.

The day is'to them what July 4th is to  the United States and July 14th to  France; it is the day when they, recall  the. victory of three small states against  the House.of Ilapsburg. The struggle  with the Austrians. of course, went on  for centuries, and was tempered with  phases of friendship, but the year 1291,  which is the subject of veneration on  the national fete day, was the beginning of Swiss independence. A correspondent describes the character of thc  celebration with emphasis laid,on the  delicacy and reticence of the rejoicings.  There was nothing official; there were  no public banquets; no striking parades;  no fuss, noise, or boasting. And yet the  patriotism of the Swiss is one of the  most effective patriotisms in Kuropc.  The Swi.s-?.serves his country as a soldier with moro cheerfulness and more  intelligence than any citizen in Europe,  but ho does not keep his patriotism up  ,-(,0=4)1 e=Ji)a id-:���������������������������.w-i tii=.a ny���������������������������0 f=Uie=J)u talu  courage  of   vainglorious   rhetoric.

Not long ago lie Swiss were  asked by moans of a poll of tho people  whether they were willing to accept a  bill wliich laid 011 them a longer period  of service, and the burden of more military expenditure. By a great majority  they answered "Yes." The result of a  poll of fho people is frequently a negative. Hero, if ever, one would have expected  a   negative.

In town  and village nothing happens till the  evening. At eight o'clock the bells in  every belfry in fho land aro sot ringing,  and at dark bonfires arc lit upon the  hills and young and old sing, "O .Mouts  Jndopcndants," which goes to our tune  of "God Save ihe Xing." Thc correspondent quotes M. Philippe Monnier,  the Swiss novelist, who died a ��������������������������� few  weeks ago, as writing of this simple  celebration of bells and bonfires: "It  is spontaneous like a scrap of happiness which has its birth_ one evening in  a family. Its only origin is the' unpremeditated harmony of heart and  spirit."    Again Monnier says:  "One must not always say 'Patrie,  patrie.' It is a profanation.

To   mention   two   or  three out of a  dozen  such  theories, it  has  been  said  that the  beautiful picture   has   been   stolen   by  a   blue-eyed  dreamer who  had  fallen   mystically' in  love  with  Mona   Lisa;- that  a  French  newspaper  which  a  year ago  declared  that .the painting had  been  stolen-has  now had it   stolen  to  prove its  statement;  thai thc whole thing is a,hoax,  perpetrated to show how easy it would  be  to  rob  thc   Louvre;  that" the theft  was engineered by an American collector who would  have a beautiful* copy  made, and in due time return this to tho  Louvre, preserving thc original for his  own private art worship.    Such preposterous theories have been based partly  on  the idea that uo  professional thief  would  dare  to  steal  an  object  of immense'value which he could not possibly  soil.    Thc answer to this is  that such  a thief, or band  of thieves, might be-  liove that if the picture was.hidden for  two or three vears, the French authorities,  having given  up" all   hope  of  re-   -  covering the picture directly, might be  induced to pay a large sum'in a'roundabout way i'or its return.    Another argument to show that an ordinary.'.thief  could not easily have taken tho_pictnre\-  is that it was painted, .not-on canvas,..  which could'be rolled'up, but on aiarge',  wooden   panel  which   could  be  carried'  off only with difficulty.

The -  accepted version  is that Mona was the.  wife  of   Francesco  del  Gioconda,. that  Leonardo painted on thc picture at iu-   ������������������  tcrvals  for four  years, that  these sit- -  tings wore brief because he could paint  only  while.

For here lies  this magnificent highway, neglected,  and, for all transportation purposes  that are not purely industrial, useless  and worse than useless. Time was  when the Tuames played its full part  in the pageant of metropolitan life,  when it was almost as much a thoroughfare   as   the    Strand,    and    when  1 every Londbner had made the trip  from Chelsea-to-Greenwich.

'"    And theu, again,.on a steamer you  are'one.of a  crowd; and the" Thames  is'-not-meaut for'crowds,-but. for individuals in pairs.   Its ease is just the  opposite   of 'the   Hudson's,   on   whose  majestic breadth anything smaller than  an Albanv day-boat seems lost, aud the  grim   grandeur   of  whose ' cliffs  makes  companionship" as natural as ou the At-  =Jnntie^-wabtes.-=J3iit^theJX:hames.is_eon-  secrated to the single and double sculler, the punt, thc Canadian canoe, the  small electric or motor launch; to easy,  dawdling talk; to chosen, unpromiscu-  ous society. It is not majestic; it has  no grandeur; it is simply, softly, and  shyly beautiful. And the way to get  fo the heart of its beauty is not to rush  down it in mid-stream, but to loiter  about on its restful waters, to explore  its secret.nooks and surprises, its back-  -watcrs-and-tributaries-an<l-islets,-to  land when you conie to any ��������������������������� village  that looks particularly tempting, to tie  up under a willow or bury yourself and  your boat in a clump of rushes when  you feel like it; and never to be one  of a purty that is intent on doing������������������������������������������������������  Thames by a day's judicious sculling  of ten to 'fifteen miles thau by cover-  in" the whole distance between London  ami Oxford in a steamer.  And there is no better starting-point,  if you wish to compass thc best that  the Thames has to offer, than Maidenhead, some sixty miles below Oxford  and 'some thirty-five above Richmond.  Its only drawback as you push off in  vour boat���������������������������aud what boats these  Thames boats are!���������������������������long, narrow, light,  luxurious, springing to the stroke of the  oar like a horse to thc" whip���������������������������its ouly  drawback is that it brings you at once  to a stretch of scenery that you know  bv instinct is too good to last. First  there is Boulter's Lock, through which  everybody feels mysteriously bound to  pass on "the Sunday after the Ascot  races and where eveu on less obligatory  Sabbaths you may see the fashionable  side of Thames life at its best, the  men in their whitest, the .women in  their gayest, and the water in the lock  all but 'hidden from view beneath the  packed jumble of launches, rowboats,  punts, and canoes. Then, as you emerge  up-stream, you are greeted on the right  by the rich, deep, towering sweep of  the Cliveden Woods, tumbling in cascades of beechc down to the river s  edce for two shimmering miles, broken  by    inviting    glades    and    exquisitely  harmonious cottages, boat-houses, and  landing-stages, and crowned by the famous white mansion; while on the left  there arc other woods and a succession  of riverside houses, each with its faultless lawn and gardens sloping to the  water'h brink; and higher np you skirt  what is perhaps the most enticing of  the many beautiful islands on the  Thames.  The overture is perhaps too perfect;  nothing that comes after, not "even the  dark grace of the Quarry Woods at  Bourne End, or the flaming beeches of  Halt's Wood above Pangbourne in a  late September sunset, quite equals the  suffusion of its tender,- penetrating  charm. And yet the more one sees of  the Thames the more one hesitates to  pronounce this bit or that "the best,"  or t,o decide under which of its bounti-  ful" and varied aspects'it makes the  surest appeal. The selection of the  worst bit offers less embarrassment.  .Unanimously it is awarded to the mile  or two of suburb, flatland,������������������"chimney,  and railway embankment that usher  in the town of Reading,* once renowned  for tne magnificence of its Benedictine  Abbey and now for its bulbs and its  biscuits. But to dogmatize as to which  is the choicest vista or the loveliest  reach'on the Thames is really asvho'pe-_  less and as puerile as to choose between Shakespere's sonnets.  If you have seen the Cliveden Woods  in the brimming glory of July you will  say that nothing can surpass them. But  you will say the same of the Hurley  backwater if you creep into it some  morning iu late May wheu the' chestnut  blossoms���������������������������and the hawthorn overarch  its pellucid .waters and the kingfisher  is diving for his morning meal. And  you will say the same-of Sonning with'  its clustered islands and chalets and  old red bridge, and of the twin .villages  of Goring and Streatley, and of Maple-  durham Lock" with its - Tudor manor-  house, its,weir and embowered mill, as  you'.approach, .them through the haze  of the September.-.twilight;. the .same,  too. of the,noble reach at,Henley, surely dniing-regatta-week, .the cleanest,  prettiest,, and ��������������������������� most joyous scene that  the'August sun ever shone on"; the same  also pi' Dutch-like .Abingdon- as you  steal some mellow^afternoon-upon its  thousand years of'quaintness; the same  again,"of some stretchtoo familiar, too  typical" of England "and the Thames to  be, remarked" at-the, time,-*vbut rising  before one in retrospect-with fare'and  compelling" 'quietude lof , effect���������������������������just  wooded," hillsTon"-the-" one side -sloping  down-to,the* clear -stream andmorrored  ���������������������������in it s' waters/and*, on the -other.Tyyhere  the tbwpath 7 runs, "the1. green. kine;stud.  .ded.;meadow.s Z stretching -.awayTto the  smiling^ ."plahds.- i^'j-i'- ��������������������������� 7 - -' ."

There are times, too, -on the evening  of some such carnival,"when," reclining  in one's'punt, in the warm, deep-blue  darkness that is pierced and heightened  by the glow of-phinese lanterns, one  lazily! watches the bursting fireworks,  nowhere ������������������-o beautiful as on water, and  vows "that, the daylight has nothing  to show more fair. And there* are  times when crowds become an abomination,'when even the sight of a woman engaged in the deftest, the most  graceful, and    feminine, exercise 10f  "pm"ting"_is a vexation, when one wei7  comes the long-deserted reaches," finds  all the companionship one needs in the  moorhens and dabchicks, the reed-buntings and sedge-warblers, the herons and  swans, and blesses the wise laws that  have made" the Thames a bird sanctuary  and migration route.  But the mood that most often recurs  is one in which alien presences, within  moderation,    rouse   no. resentment,   in  which one-has somethiiig-of-the equable,  hospitable spirit of the river itself and  gives one's self up to a day of casual  adventures    and    purposoless    explorations.    To   such' a   mood   the   Thames  responds with ungrudging sweetness of  surrender;   and   one's   reward   is   very  great.    Never to be set on getting any-"  where in particular is the first of the  injunctions  imposed  by  the  geaius  of  thc   river  upon   its   worshippers.    And  the   second   is  like  unto   it���������������������������never  to  keep; to the main stream when an armlet, a backwater, a creek, or a pool invites  you   to   stray.   With   these   pre-,  cepts .to guide you, you will discover,  what the point-to-point rowers and the  passengers on the steamers will  never  learn, that the Thames keeps half its  beauties in reserve, to be disclosed to  those  only  who   seek  them   out.   You  will push into some willow-shaded beckoning byway, like the one near Cleeve,  and find it opening out into a pond of  water-lilies,   with   the    river    foamin  over a weir a hundred yards away, anc  nearer still a tawny Quceu Anne farmhouse, ablaze  with  flowers,  while you  listen to the music of a yet older mill.  You will turn on your course when you  pass through Goring Lock, and, floating  down the backwater on  the left, you  will  surprise   a  venerable  inn, a   few  yards from the water's edge, yet half  hidden in a riot of roses; and below it,  incomparably   set,  a  mill  coeval  with,  the monasteries.   You will pull in behind the screen of willows on tke ba������������������k,  and   tliere   amid   loosestrife,   raleriai,  snapiragM, f������������������rg������������������t-me-not,- aad th������������������ ������������������������������������i-  YersaT,  imnV-iinoria]   fresh -water "'fTaB'te  and grasses, dream a whole morning  away without a moment of self-reproach.  And, above all, you will fearlessly  and frequently land. To rove from  Marlow to Hurley is no doubt very  good. You pass by a succession of  riveiside houses, each -with its lush  lawns, its brave flower-beds, and its  thatched boat-house in front; yon pass  by Bisham Abbey, a superlative Tudor  structure on a twelfth-century foundation; you pass by the Abbey Church  with its gray Norman tower; yon pats  by reach upon reach of willows, alders,  and poplars; and it is all exquisite.  But it is better still, it gives new values  to everything, if before pushing ou you  land at Marlow, and wander round the  quiet, spacious streets of,the old market town and glimpse its manor-house,  its ancient inns, and its flower-smothered cottages, and stand before the house  where Shelley wrote "Thc Revolt of  Islam:" and if when Hurley is reached  you stroll past the lock-keeper's cottage, past a barn that nine hundred  years ago was the refectory of an historic priory, and through the fields to  the "Old Bell Inn" at Hurley village,  quaintest, most, iambing and ancient  of English hostelries, where Queen Elizabeth slept or ought to have slept,  where Jacobean coffers waylay you in  the hall and on the landings, and old  brans candlesticks twinkle at you beneath an oak-raftered ceiling.  The delights and memories of a day  so'   spent  will   vanquish  for  the   time  being   all   the   other   preferences   with  whieh the Thames distracts thc minds  and   hearts .of   its .votaries.    But,  indeed, there is" no part of the ninety-odd  miles between  Teddington  and  Oxfoid  that "does  not  make good  in   its  own  special  claim to history, romance, and  beauty.    Even Reading is more dismal  than   ugly;   even "the  railway,   bridges  are rather stupid than criminal; there is  sometimes    tameness, 'there   is    never  monotony, in the slow progression, the  facile, ' continuous   blend   of   meadow,  hill,  and wood, long level reaches and  tossing weirs,  modern" suburb  or  "re-"  sort" and villages that go back to the  beginnings   of _ English .annals,   house-,  boats, electric launches, and twentieth-  century-architecture,side." by side with  medieval .abbeys, gray,, time-worn castles,- and   manor-houses  that  saw   and  "survived the Wars of the Roses. .r    "-  The very locks have a .charm.*-"Once  on   an   average "in "every   three  .miles  their white-and-friendly doorways"'bar  your path; the river "is girdled for your  service ancl ��������������������������� squeezed 'into -a" stone box  with" wooden .ends.- some forty or fifty  yards  in. length ,and .-six - or.,seven   in  width; -you   hail.,.the-* lockkeeper;'-' the  gate���������������������������_smoothly,:- and ..slowly-  opens;, a  steady - stroke ' oiV_ two���������������������������with  the sculls  shipped at the crucial'"moment���������������������������a"deft  hand oh.the,rndder, and"you.glide;,into  the/oblong well\a"nd* prisons-house,1, with  its-walls.of .masonry���������������������������if .your direction  is. up-stream-^frownih~g',"six feet "or..more  abojvel.'y.ou.,- The .-gateithrough.".which  you?hayecentered"- is "closed;*=with., hand  or.bdat-hobkJ'ybii-hold''qn toYonirof.-the  chains/that" dangle ~ dpwh"7the". walls;"  the 'shutters, iii' tlic/dq'or?aV the-other  end -are^opened; tthc -.water 1 swirls7ihtb"  the 16cj<] and you -mounf-arid mount "to  the", level "of the'-.re"ach-r.bcyond���������������������������to~the  level-also of.the loek_keeperjs_cottage,  creeper-covered;. qld'^ and   harmonious,  and  of^his garden-patch,".oue luscious,  "fragrant spread-bf ;fldw<.rs.--_77 ~-  -"7-7  -'It tmakes.a pleasant and'restful interlude, .this., business-of * getting  into  and  out .of  the locks.- And  to  do  it  without a fumble, or" a hitch under',the  politely-critical eye" of-the lock-keeper  and tho less*polite biit not less critical  eyes .'of" the   casual   lookers-on.' some-  .wbat* tests the skill .of both rower and  steerer.

BuTlheyiocks testify"n"ot afonc to the"  foresight 'and excellent care of thc  Thames Conservancy Board, but also  to the embellishment _ this fortunate  river derives from the handiwork of  man. There ean hardly be anything  more artificial and prosaic and defiant  of nature than a lock. But the Thames  locks-never jar on one. They compose  with, they fit into, they positively  heighten, the beanties of the stream;  the.y_are_as_mueb_a_fcaturc_of._it._and as  grateful to the eye as the willows, thc  woods, and the swans; they seem always in the right, inevitable, enhancing place; with their mellow cottages,  thoir blaze of flowers, and their whole  air of trim, clean orderliness they prolong and intensify that gentle effect  which is tbe note of nearly all English  8CM*������������������ry, but pre-eminently* of the scenery of the Thames, the effect of an arranged pasorama, of an unfolding  series 01 "pictures" in whieh Nature  appearji as tb������������������ ally, if not the'servant,  of Man, with her angularities and core--  lessness smoothed out and subdued.  One feels tbits effct most of all, perhaps, a*, one passes by the riverside  residences, with their mint-sauce lawns  ending only a few inches above tho  water's level, their gardens a brilliant  fairyland of flowers, and always something going on in the grounds around  ���������������������������a game of tennis or croquet, or children romping about, or "groups under  the dreaming garden trees," always  something to hold and interest the eye  as you row past and to widen and supplement the artistic and emotional appeal. Such houses, new and old, built  with the generous spaciousness of the  Georgians, or nestling half hidden in  the woods like a Swiss chalet, or talked on, like Medmenham Abbey, to thc  ruins of an ancient monastery, line one  bank of the Thames or the other almost the whole way from London to  Oxford. They are not all of them, to  be sure, sucetMM; ������������������y������������������> here tk������������������ ie*w  architecture,'-.not Iqm bastardly aai itill  more eonepicuoni*f'tfi'ff'n' the new art, has  found its way. But, on the whole, it is  wonderful how rarely one finds a wrong  nolo struck. In. England,' where .the  instinct for gardening is universal and  the soil, epsecially along the Thames  Valley, of phenomenal fertility, it takes  a very few years to bury a brand new  house in vines and creepers and to convert each plot of ground into a miniature paradise. The English have nothing to learn from anyone in this  branch of art, and along the Thames  they have put forth their best.  And these old mansions, abbeys, inns,  mills, and bridges; these quiet, half-  forgotten villages; this whole luxurious  countryside with its zigzagging silver  Thames���������������������������remember that they have seen  and known and still bear the marks of  nearly all English history. Here is a  village mentioned in Domesday; there  is a market town that sent representatives to Parliament six hundred years  ago; in that church sleeps 'Warwick the  Kingmaker; higher up is a priory  founded in the reign of King John; a  mile or two away is a church consecrated in"1086; there stands a mansion  that only Sir Christopher Wren could  have designed, and'���������������������������-there another that  was boseiged in the Civil War; this  little cluster of houses a thousand years  ago was the centre of a vast diocese;  yonder depressing town of chimneys  and factories that you pass with dis-'  dainful eyes and .quickened stroke has  none the less a history that goes back  to the Danish Wars before the Norman  Conquest;-that sleepy"manor-house to  which-one's heart-goes out antedates  the diseoyery- of America by a hunderd  and fifty years; here was a ford over  whieh the Romans came pouring,-and  the town that commanded it���������������������������today  the quietest of villages but for1 the  motorists who speed through" it from  Oxford to Reading���������������������������made stirring and  momentous history from William the  Conqueror's day to Oliver Cromwell's;  and there is a-bridge that for five hundred-years has borne,-and bears at this  moment, the burden of a main-road  traffic. _  The Thames, indeed, arid the life that  grew about it, the great -abbeys and  priories that settled on, its banks���������������������������the  Thames, so easy to navigate and to  ford^ and running two hundred and fifty  mile's into the heart of thc country, was  for many centuries England," or at-least  the- richest,- most" cultivated,*-and -most  civilized part of -it, .the c'entre'of- its  religious" and scholastic life, its chief  battle'-ground, its social,* commercial,'  and "stragetical "dividing-line between  north and-south; and-to pass along it  from ^London to Oxford is to focus all  English-, history from-the Roman" .invasion to" the, twentieth "century.    . , "    _  '- But even a dozen-miles of.'judicious  sculling and-, landing, are enough to  carry- one]; back through-"the, ages.vC-You  start.-for'instance, some twenty-smiles  below; Oxford]" a't7 Wallingford,.

SPECIAL LECTURE COURSE  Finest in the Country  " "Enderby is a charming villiage with city airs.  When Paddy Murphy shook the snow of Sandon  off his feet he came here,  and now owns one of  finest brick hotels in the  country..   Although  Paddy is an Irishman from,Michigan, he calls his  .  hotel the King Edward.*   In addition to the ex- '  .. ".cellence of the meals, breakfast is" served up to .10. . _  o'clock, "which is an added attraction for tourists."  Z   ' (Extract from Lowerr's Ledge.) ' *  -  King Edward Hotel, ������������������  H. MURPHY  Proprietor.,    .  Enderby  Secretary Handcock, of the Farmers' Institute has' applied to the Department of Agriculture for a special  series of meetings to be held at Enderby and Mara, taking up particularly the subjects of vegetable growing and the growing of flowers. To  Mr." Handcock's application, the  Chief Horticulturist, Mr. R. M.  Winslow, replies:  "We had fine meetings at these  points last year, and will be glad to'  grant your application (vegetable  growing) again this year.  "Re. the growing 'of flowers: I  might say that this does come in my  Department, but that we have had  very few requests for information on  the subject. Our reason for not  urging the point more, is that the  people are too busy at present getting a start to do much in the way  of the planting of shrubs and flowers.  Nothing is more noticeable to one  who travels around the province than  the barrenness of thc majority of  country homes. We believe the time  will soon come when Horticultural  societies can be formed at many  points to promote a much-needed improvement in this respect.  "If in your opinion,- there would be  a sufficient attendance at Enderby,  and if well-attended meetings could  be arranged at other points in the  immediate vicinity, I would be very  glad to receive from you and t.o consider an application for a lecture on  this subject." - -.'

ROGERS LUMBER CO., Enderby  - AT THE THEATRE  Enderby has seen the Harem .skirt  ���������������������������in actual operation. And it created  a pleasing sensation. There was a  little flutter, -' some whispering, ;be*a  admiration. " The "garment was worn  hy "Flossie," in "Fritz, the Chauffeur," played by May Roberts and  her excellent company last Saturday  evening. "Flossie," by-the-way, is  one of the most refreshing characters  on the stage. She has a strikingly  pretty form to fit pretty costumes  upon, and she" wears them with the  dignity of a fashion plate.  Miss Roberts and Mr. Gillar-d are  not strangers to an Enderby audience  ���������������������������they have been here befpre, and always have been recognized as the  cleverest artists playing here, but  never have they been so well supported. Their appearance on Friday  evening in "Divorcion," was a rare  treat. The play itself would fall flat  in the hands of less clever artists. In  Mr. H. W. Wright sends tbe following from Vancouver: "Enderby is  alright with snow, but here���������������������������not for  mine ! We had more than a foot of  it in .one week, but it is all gone now  ���������������������������and such a mess of slush ! The  rain 'for mine ! Mrs. .W. and E. are  in good health, and like it here, but  do not care much for this' kind of  snow. * * * I saw   of Vernon the other day, He told me they  hlurried old Mr. Watson in Vernon the  'day before he left. Well,. I am glad  he is gone. The poor old man suf-  lered too much for one old man to  stand."  Mr. Wrigbt's remarks regarding the  death of old Mr. Watson will be appreciated by all who understand the  nature of his illness, and the close  fatherly care exercised over him by  Mr.  Wright.   No one  Once upon a time there was an Indian   named   Big   Smoke.     A White  Man, encountering Big  Smoke, asked'  him what he did for a" living.  "Umph !"   said    Big    Smoke,  "me  preach!"  "That so ?    What   do you get for  preaching?" .  "  "Me" git ten -dollar a year."  '-"���������������������������Well,"    said     the *   White ,.  "that's damn poor pay."

Mr. Gray has built up .a  very prosperous business by his obliging and attentive policy; and what  is more, he delivers the goods, as  many Enderbyites can testify who  have had him serve them.  it Miss Roberts excels~lierself. She  plays the woman to the faintest detail of perfection, and not for a  moment does she over-play. Her  work at the close of the second act  met with round after round of enthusiastic applause. The play in  every detail was handled by strong  supporting artists.  -In "Fritz, the Chauffeur,'.'-Mr.-Gil-  lard was seen at his best. His German character fitted him to a dot.

PROPOSED  LEGISLATION  There is good authority for the  statement that the Government is  working upon a comprehensive  scheme under which the provinces  will be subsidized for the benefit of  agriculture, and for good road building, the money to be ear-marked and  the expenditures made on definite  lines to be laid down by the Dominion Government.  In order to prepare the way for the  granting of subsidies and to ascertain exactly what are the most  pressing needs .of the individual provinces, one or perhaps two commissions will be appointed, to be composed of appointees of the Federal  Government.

"I can assure" you that I esteem it  a'privilege to be called upon to administer the affairs of this prosperous and growing Dominion, and to  associate myself with yjou in the important duties whieh you are about  to approach. It afford me great  pleasure to congratulate you upon  the contiaued and increasing prosperity of the country. Our trade,  both with ' British and with foreign  countries is rapidly expanding, and  there is every prospect, that, in volume, the trade of the present year  will be largely in excess of that attained at any time in the past.   .  '-'Although there has been some  damage to the crops in certain districts, the harvest has .on the whole  been abundant and it is believed-that  the returns to the husbandman will  exceed those secured in any previous  year.  "The result of .the - census taken  during the present year will be laid  before you, so far"as they have been  tabulated. ' While' the increase" in  population has not fulfilled all the  sanguine expectations that have ,been  formed, yet it"/-has'been substantial  and encouragingly ou will be pleased  to know' that the revenues for the  current 7fiscal ~ year have, up -to* the  present,-largely exceeded those at any  'similar.period in the past with" every  prospect -' that"' the; increase wilU be  maintained. 7 7" 7_ ._-���������������������������: - -f---?' /.- ,  7'The. advantages that-Would/result  from.'a .wider7exchange, of_products"  between the7various /countries of the  Empire7 are7 undoubtedly in .view of.1  the wonderful variety and extent of  those productions, and negotiations  have been opened for improved trade  arrangements with the British West  Indies and British Guiana, which  should prove advantageous to those  colonies as well as to the Dominion.  "The importance of providing our  country with better highways is man-  the result of their enquiry.  "Gentlemen of the House of Commons: The accounts'* of the last year  will be laid before you; the balanct of  the estimates for the coming year will  be submitted for your approval at an  early date.

Prizes should on no account be given  to unsound males or females of any  class. Most, unsoundness is hereditary.  It i.s unfair to judges to expect them to '  decide the question of soundness. They  should be protected by the veterinarian, who should either.examine them  before they are judged or. at least, before the awards are made. In the case  of stallions this is imperative. A show  committee in giving prizes to stallions  should make sure tbat they are not  defeating thc object of the show; the  encouragement of improvement, by recommending au unsound sire whose pro-  genv will assuredly inherit the sire's  defects.

ENDERBY PRESS AND WALKER'S WEEKLY  P  6  How Animals are Taught  Their Tricks  ft  I'-  v������������������*  f **".i ".  |-.?#C  Tlie training of animals, to teach  thom to perforin all sorts of entertaining tricks, is a task that requires perhaps a special talent on thc part of the  trainer, but above all domands patience  and a thoroughly methodical procedure.  Let us begin with the clog, and see how  * he'is taught his tricks. We commence  with the simplest, and gradually work  up to the most complex and apparently  impossible feats.  The first thing'every dog must learn  is his name. Select a short, sharp-  sounding name, and stick to it. Never  call him anything else. If you have  several dogs, the name is taught on thc  same principle. Divide thoir food, and  then, placing a pieco on the ground,  call each in turn by his namo and give  him the food whon he conies for it. Send  ,the others back if they como forward  out. of their turn. By aud by they will  , learn that a certain name is ahvays associated with a certain- dog.' gamble  among the dogs, and call out one of  their names every now and then. If the  right dog comes to you, reward him with  a piece -of cracker. 7 Pay no attention  to the other dogs. They will learn very  soon* and the first great lesson���������������������������dependence and obedience���������������������������win have  been learned.    .*  [raving taught a dog'to fetch and  carry���������������������������which he will easily learn-r-the  next thing is to teach him to go and  get any object called for. Place a glove  on the floor; then say to the dog,  "Fetch the glove/' putting the accent  on the last word. Then, when he has  done this several "times, place a shoe  on thc iloor; and teach him to fetch this  _in a similar manner/ Now place both  objects on the ground, and teach him to  fetch either'one, as asked for���������������������������rewarding him when he brings you the right  one, and rebuking him when he fetches  thc" wrong, which you take from him  and replace'. He will soon learn to distinguish .the articles, when a third may  be,substituted, and* so on until-a number are on tho 'floor. -��������������������������� You should then  go into,the rnoxt*room, taking the.,dog  with you; "and send,hiin in to.fetch' any  article you mention. After a little time,  he will/bring you the right one every  - time. ���������������������������    \ -      - *   -    -  Next; teach .him differences in color.  " Place a red .object on 'the floor, and a  ' bluefone-beside.it.":Teach'him,to,fetch  -you* the**-article;, called/for as,, you did  before, being." careful/* to', reward--him  ��������������������������� every- time   he   brings/ you, -the-'.right  handkerchief- Then put down^a green  -object, a purple, a yellow one/and so  '" on;, until- finally -the needed array "-of  ~ colon*;can>be, placed, for'.selection- ���������������������������>  <" Next", h<f shouldbe'taught the articles  - "ot:furniture-stable,'' chair/ etc.. He must  ,'go/to'each/one as youjcairdut.its name.  -Finally/* combine-some. .of. therprevioiis  -commands: -'.'Place-the glove on tho  u chair";'' .//Get-the. handkerchief,, and  /place"-it on--'the-* table",," etc"   At first  "this '.should  he said- very , slowly,  and  :*only   half .'the   command   repeated   at  '/nice 7.but the halves., of  the .sentence  may be gradually blended" together, uiv-  .till you can' say.it as you would to,'any  individual; and the dog .will obey your  command. ��������������������������� * ���������������������������' "-- '    ���������������������������    ,  -   To a certain extent, also, dogs.may be  "taueht.the letters .of the alphabet,-the  * numbers of spots" on.cards, large dominoes,^ etc.-  'The" method .of   training  them is simply one of constant repetition.   Cards bearing thc, letter or num-  - ber are placed in'_ front of the'dog, and  the letter or number is called out aloud,  and-at the same time the dog is shown  which one it is."  After several trials,  ' he will select this' one and disregard  "the others/'wheu'it is called for. This  once learned, the next letter is-taught  iu like manner, until- a large number  are recognized by the dog) and hc is  able to pick out. any of them at will.  __.Plants_.are ajs.o to be selected in a &imi:  'lar manner/from a row olaced on the  table, and so forth.  rt must be admitted, however, that  most feats of this character, ab performed in public, are the result' of some  trick, rather than any marvclously elaborate training on the part of the dog,  which would be necessary if these feats  were genuine���������������������������granting them to be possible at all. As a matter of fact, most  of these apparently marvelous feats are  -based-on-a-very few-cues, given-to-tho  dog at thc appropriate time, to which  he has been taught to respond in a  simple mau ner. A few examples will  make this clear.  Many of these feats are performed  by means of a cue word, in just tho  same kind of way as "mind-readers"  entertain and puzzle their audience. As  soon as this Avord is given, it may be in  tho course of- a sentence, the clog knows  that he is to perform a certain action,  Jt is not necessary for him to understand the whole of the sentence; only  one word in it. As soon as that word  is caught, thc action is performed. Each  action corresponds to a certain cue  word. Again, there is the method of  training by the use of the eyes. The  dog watches his master's eyes, and  when his maftor glances in any direction���������������������������at a card, for example���������������������������the dog  can follow his glance, and pick out  the card in turn. Or the dog may be  told to bark a certain number, in which  case the dog watches his master's face  closely, and simply barks until thc eyes.  or some movement, tell him to stop. Tic  does not have to .know that he barks  nine times. All he has to know is that  he must go on barking until he is told  to stop by his master's signal; and the  trainer is the one who does all thc  counting. .  There are certain stage tricks which  depend very largely upon the dog's  raemorv. however���������������������������such as picking up a  numbered card, and the like. The cards  ���������������������������are arrahged^in-a row, and thc trainer  stand^in^rljntfcpfcthe.frow, in which  the card r'e^s;*''^stri-ig ;iB. attached to  the dog's neck,   Firet7the%g is train-  ed to go to tho row of cards nearost  the trainer; then, if he is inclined to  pick up ono too near, a slight pull on  the string is given, pulling the dog up  to the required nunibor. The trainer  stands at a certain distance from the  table in these tricks; if close to the  table, the dog knows it moans card one;  if farther away, card two, and if still  further, card three. By care in training, the dog can be taught to pick out  any required card, without in any way  knowing thc number written upon it.  When the dog has been taught to pick  up any card by means of this code, tho  trainer may appear to make it far more  complicated by causing thc dog to add,  subtract, multiply, divide, etc. All that  i.s necessary, of course, is that the performer himself should do the sum, mentally note the position of thc card giving the answer, aud indicate this card  to the clog by 'means of some hidden  code.  In the same way, horses can be made  to stamp out any desired number, tell  the date of a coin, etc., by simply going  on pawing the ground until the trainer  gives them the signal to stop by means  of some secret sign, unnoticed'by the  audience.  As to thc animals which perform in  the circus, the elephant is among the  most popular, and it seems wonderful  that so unwieldy an animal can be made  to perform any tricks at all. How set  about training an animal of this kind?  What is the first thing to be done? And  how?    - ~ .  In compelling the elephant to perform, advantage is taken of the fact  that the feet of the animal are peculiarly* sensitive and he "dreads injury  to them. Many of his*tricks are based  upon this principle. .--Thus,'he is made  to place one foot upon a low~podestal;  then the .other foot is tapped gently,  and he raipes this and places* it beside  the other���������������������������to get it out of harm's way.  The hind feet are treated similarly, in  turn���������������������������the front feet being, hit" every  time they are placed'on; the ground;. In  this way all four feet are finally placed  upon the tub.* Thc-.trick of inducing an  elephant to partake'..of a "meal is" very  simple. Animals will naturally eat anything-placed before/them, ancl it is on-'  ly necessary to open a bottle of "pop"  once or twice/and present"it.by hand,  when-the animal * may.be trusted to  find'out for himself how. to get.atits  contents.' In all such* cases, the' essence  off the training consists'.in infinite'pa^  tience. ki n'dness,". and f constant ^"repetition���������������������������showing the animal over and over  again how a thing is-done-^-in*.precisely,  the same" way���������������������������and'then' forcing him-to"  do,it himself. * 7-- ������������������������������������������������������*������������������������������������������������������'" "~-ry-'��������������������������� yy-v'���������������������������  Tiions/and'tigers are always-dangerous crcaturcsto work'with7and:6ne can  hover be sure of theni/even/when.trained."

The Hindus* teach "goats "to "do" this." Hogs "may  bo taught a number of clever tricks, and  are far more intelligent than is generally imagined. Monkeys are known to bo  capable of being trained to n remarkable degree, the feats of "Peter'.' and  'Consul" being well known to thc  American public. Thoy arc good imitators, and excessively curious, and it is  this faculty, and their ingenuity in satisfying this curiosity, which has ainus-  en many an audience; and has given  rise to''the popular notion that monkeys are far more intelligent thau they  really arc. As a matter of fact, although a fow of them are highly trained and intelligent, this is not the general rule.  A few birds may be trained to perform simple tricks, but not many, "Fortune tellers" employ tame birds to help  them in their trade. A number of small  paper envelopes are seen, in a row, one  of which contains your "fortune" in  thc shape of a slip of paper, telling  you certain platitudes about yourself.  The bird picks this envelope out with  his bill, from among others. How is it  he selects this particular one?

Two energetic Glasgow electrical engineers,  who had. elaborated a system for achieving this ideal, ordered a vessel fifty  feet in length and certified to carry  fifty passengers, in which they have  installed their plant. "It comprises a  six-cylinder petrol engine developing  forty-five brake-horse power, which  drives an alternating current dynamo,  while the propeller is coupled to an alternating current motor, the whole being controlled by switch " gear either  from the bridge or the engine-room.  The vessel, with- its novel machinery,  possesses many.points of interest for  the engineer, and thc experiments that  are being carried out with the craft  to secure some really valuable data  concerning the practicability of electricity as a propelling force for vessels  are being closely followed, and will constitute valuable material for discussion  by the learned societies when the time  comes to communicate the results of the  investigations. Thc preliminary, trials,  however,* have-.served to support the  theories advanced by many enterprising  spirits who have strenuously advocated  this system'of propulsion.' That it is  no' passing" fancy, is borne out by the  fact that in Germany and the-United  States; larger vessels, are in_ course-of  construction -for propulsion \ by the  same agency) though the. methods of  generating and applyingthe energy dif-,  fer in detail. ���������������������������It,is claimed that-by  means" of- such a system certain, much-  desired resultsMmp'ossible.to be obtained with the best tpyes.of steam-engines  can _b_e /secured- with the. highest effi-:  ciency. 7; For -instance, /the steam'"tiifV  bine * is ^irreversible; and-*the/ /petrol  motor requires.a'' speciaL attachment' for  achieving this end,'-.:wbereaB'--.with "the  electric.vsystem* thevpropeller .can- be  switched over/ froni" full/'speed- ahead  to full;, speed * astern* in a . matter of  seconds without changing, the direction  of the rotation of the power-generator.  It is "stated,- also, that, electric propulsion is more economical 'than'-any other  system of driving' a vessel, and certainly the results so .far .achieved., appear  to bear/out this contention. , On trial  the new boat attained "a speed of nearly  eight and-a" half miles per,hour. The  present-trend of thought'in marine engineering -is towards the evolution of  an electric system capable ���������������������������of, fulfilling  the -difficult requirements of ship propulsion", and -the~Clyde/will "occupy an-  other niche" in history, as . having pro-'  duced the first electrically driven "vessel, as  it  did  the first steamship.  _  W IN A BALLOON   - - " -  Drs. Steyrcr and Fleming, who made  a prolonged ascent in the balloon Berlin, conducted a series of experiments  at great ^altitudes, - with special, refer-  encc to the physjoIogical__cffcjits_oJ7_cx;_  pbsure toTutensc colTl and to hot suu  rays in extremely rarefied air.  Both piofessors were equipped with  oxygen masks. At a height of-16,500  feet they wero obliged to inhale oxygen at intervals of from one to two  minutes; otherwise they suffered from  headache, heart palpitations, and defective respiration. As they roached  greater heights these symptoms increased, and oxygen had to be more frequently inhaled. _'At a"_hciglit_oi'.-bo.  tween'25,000 and 27,000 feet Fleming  fainted 'on removing fhe mask for an  instant.  The effect-of stiong sunshine, intense  cold, and insufficiency of air, gave the  face a terrifying aspect, but the aeronauts felt apathy rather than any seven' pains. Another clfcct was a feeling of cramp in tho muscles.  The sun's rays acting in the rarefied  air produced a swelling and reddening  of the skin, accompanied by fever, anil  thoso symptoms reached their height  forty-eight  hours after the  descent.  Among the experiments made was a  tost I'or thc presence of micro-organisms. Three tests, thc highest made at  15,000 feet, showed micro-organisms in  thc small proportion of from 0.2 to 0.5  a liter (1.70 pints) of air. The fourth  test was made at an elevation of nearly  27,000 feet, and revealed no germs.  A WIFE WITHOUT A WORD  A London cab-washer, lately charged  with attompted suicide, has shown real  wit aud originality.

The peculiar ingenuity of the dofonce  was that it was such a pathetic one  that no magistrate possessing even tho  smallest semblance of a heart could  possibly convict on thc face of it.

Murphy, Enderby  "Earl Jr., (2.0������������������i) the war horse of  Walter Cox's stable, (Dover, N.H.)  the past season, is now in his new  home at Enderby, B. C. He, should  be hard to beat out in that country  another season."���������������������������-American Horse-  breeder, Boston, Mass.  The above   quotation refers to the  Grand  Circuit winner now owued  by  P. H.    Murphy.       Earl   Junior was  purchased  by Mr.  Murphy early last  spring, and when    the Grand Circuit  season opened Mr. Murphy went East  and staid with    his horse in all the  big events in    which he was entered.  Earl  Junior    won   money in every  one of the 17 races paced by him, and  carried off first   in 12 out of the 17.  Mr.  Murphy   is   very   well    satisfied  with the season's results, and is preparing to do even better another season.     Earl Junior arrived in Enderby  by fast freight   on   Sunday last and  is now stabled at Mr.  Murphy's fruit  orchard,  the  old   Elson   place,   situated  on the   town   limits.     He will  he kept here for the winter, and when  "the Spring opens and the roads permit,   we may anticipate seeing some  fast pacing   by   this great American  Grand Circuit winner.  The. Horseman says of this horse:  "The grey pacing horse, Earl Jr., by  The Earl, which won the champion  sweepstakes at the Kalamazoo Grand  Circuit meeting, has developed into  one of the whirlwind side wheelers  and a consistent race horse. He  was introduced to the light harness  horse world some three or four years  ago, at Peoria, by a farmer boy-from  southern Illinois. He unexpectedly  ���������������������������I might say, unintentionally���������������������������won  his first race in fast time at that  meeting, much to the astonishment  of the wise boys who didn't have a  line on him. The colt was given his  first lessons-'on an irregular half-mile  track marked off in a plowed field.  " He ,is now one" of the pacing stars of  the Grand Circuit. All of which goes  to prove that winners may be dcveL  ,'"oped" anywhere;"."_- "���������������������������: - . /: _ _  Speaking of; Earl Junior's .work in"  the Grand Circuit races held in connection with-'the.

The  second heat was easier still for the  grey, and the Black stallion, The  Abbe, under a vigorous drive by Ben  White, also beat Independence Boy,  getting a divide of second and third  i Cox got   out   of   the    pocket at the  ihead of the stretch an'd in a hurricane  drive to the wire landed the heat by  i a narrow   margin   in 2.05^,. the last  ��������������������������� quarter in 29 i   seconds.

They  were at three-quarters in 1.37J, with  Evelyn W. a length to the good, and  then    the    pair    came    through   the  ���������������������������stretch like    two   wild  horses.

"Cox went away in front with Earl  Jr. in thc final heat, with Evelyn W.  and The Eel close up. At the quarter  the New Hampshire reinsman took his  I mount back, letting The Eel out in  front as a windbreak. Evelyn W.  paced around The Eel on the turn  and Cox also came around with Earl  Jr. "***-It was a scorching finish, Cox  keeping Evelyn W. pinned in close to  the rail, and beat her a neck in 2.042-  the final quarter in 29������������������ seconds, the  average time of the three final quarters being 29 seconds."
