There were about 60 delegates present, and a great number of questions  of importance to municipalities were  dealt with. An excellent paper was  read by Mayor Hamilton, of Revelstoke, on Municipal Sanitation,which  was listened to    with great interest.  A paper was read by Mayor Morley  of Victoria, on Municipal Government  and a resolution in favor of same  was passed. It was decided to ask  the Government to introduce legislation giving holders of agreements of  sale the right .to vote. It was the  opinion of the meeting that those  who pay the taxes should have the  right to vote.  There were several resolutions sent  in with regard to the Municipal  Clauses, Act, and it was resolved that  the Government be asked to appoint  a Commission to redraft the Act, the  plication,    and   Mr.  Moffet then  ap- In tlie matter of the Creditor's Trus  and are enjoying the pleasure of meet  for table use     1.25   40-lb sacks  plied to the court of appeal, but they  upheld the decision and the action of  the mayor.  A communication   was   read   fnom  ?.���������������������������_ ?��������������������������� J-'ftwes offering   tojlced to the  city a strip of land ten feet in width  from the   termination of the present  Cliff street water   main through  his  Enderby Heights property to a point  as high as the present head will put  water, provided the city would agree  to put a   water   main to said point  within a period of six months.   The  Council accepted   the proposition so  far as the deed to the land was concerned,    but    could   not bind the incoming Council to lay the main.     It  was recognized at once that this was  the solution.of the problem of getting  water to this    admirable'residential  property,    and   the   Mayor was empowered to approach Mr. Lawes and  endeavor to secure in addition to the  10-foot " strip,    sufficient land at the  terminating    point   to  allow  of the  erection of a    standpipe or reservoir  which   the    city   would have to construct,    and   into   which    the  main  would empty.     Said reservoir would  not only serve the hill, but would, in  case of   emergency,   be of .service to  the city in case   of the main supply  pipe    having to   be   emptied at any  time for repairs.

"Y never shot a  man in my life, but I used to knock  flown glass balls purty accurate, an'  I've hunted big game in Africa an'  Irdia. I don't want no trouble, but  im set in my ways about dogs.

It  took  him  n solid   week  to  learn   that  pup how to shake hands, an' yet Bill  told us coafidential that he was certain  that the pup knew it all the while; but  *.t the end of the week the pup gave  iu, an' from that on  he  svas as eager  for knowledge as a new-born baby.

From that  on,'Bill made the pun be a little moro  temperate in the use o' stecis.  The muscles on that pup got to be  like hard rubber, an' you couldn't pinch  him hard enough to make him squeak.  Uc alius took a serious view o' life except when the' was a chance for a  little rough an' tumble; then his face  would light up like an angel's. Pull-  in ' on a rope was his idee o! draw poker  a,- ' hc could wear out fhe whole bunch  or us :.', it. Bill fair idolized him���������������������������  fact is, we nil thought " heap of.him;  but I'd 'a' liked hini a mif better if  the' 'd  beon  more bunks in ilie shack.  [f hc got cold, he'd scratch your  face till you let him under the covers,  an' then when hc got loo hot, he'd puld  the covers off an' roll 'em into a nice  soft heap, with himself on top. He  never overlooked himself much, the pup  didn't. First I knew, I got to missin'  a right smart o' sleep that really belonged to me; 'cause, while LMn opposed  to speakin' ill o' the absent, I'd just  about as soon try to sleep with a colicky  hoss  as with Bill an' the pup.    When  thc  tbe pup wasn't chasin' imaginary jack-  rabbits or live fleas, Bill was jumpin'  up an' down to write somethin' new into his book;- until Kid Porter swore  that if any more came, he was goin'  to leave.  I'd pup 1 ever see, an' it. was kind o'  ���������������������������veepy to seo him come. I.o the shack,  open the door, slain it after him, wipe  his feet on the burlap, look into Bill's  f.'iee. an' give a short bark. This was  to i'.-k if. Bill had any new jobs for him.  I had it all planned out that the pup  v.jis to tdocp in the wagon shed; but  Uiip didn't look good to the pup, nor to  Bill, neither. When night would come,  JJuj/uL.would go throughjiis lcsrons.._c_sit  his supper, an' fling himself slnum'.h-  wayn on the wide bunk. lie didn't  weigh more'n. sixty pounds, but Ihey  wy* thc solident sixty ever wrnppod  up in a dog hide. Be wouldn't mind  no one but Bill, au' it waf- all I could  do to got room enough on the peivh to  uang on.

"lie ain't, uo bulldog," snaps Bill.  "It looks lo me us if you might learn  purty soon that he's a brindlc bull-  terrier!

That.- little.-, cuss  was willin' to light anything that walk-  I like ii dog the full limit, but I  never hankered to sleep with -'em, not  when- thoy have fleas; an' when they  don't, thoy alius put me in mind of a  man 'at uses perfumery. I tried to  des'ise a plan for slcepin' on the floor,  but f couldn't engineer it through.  "No," sez Bill, in a hurt kind of a  touc, "I .wouldn't inconvenience you  i'or the world." Me an' Cupid will  sleep on the floor." Well, there I was;  f'm'us tender-hearted as a baby antelope, so" I just turned it off as a joke,  an' got to sleepin' in thc saddle on thc  return  trip.  Nothin' on earth made Bill'so mad  as to call the pup a .bulldog, though if  he wasn't one, he sure looked tho part.,  I.knowed it wouldn't do to take-too  many chances, so mc. ah' the Kid used  to post thc boys;- ah' when one' of 'em  would* drop in ah'-say as natural as  though"-hc "was, chattin'-about the" wea-  -ther: "That/s a mighty fine London,  brindlc bull-terrier you-uus have got,"  Bill's face'would light up^as if he "was  the mother of it, an' ho would turn in  an' preach us a sermon on dogs. _ That'  was why you liked Bill: he was just  the same all the way through an' if  he was friendly when it paid, you was  certain sure he'd be just as friendly  when it cost.  Colonel Scott's niece came out to  visit him some time iu May, an' wo  heard of her long boforo we saw her.  'Bout every one we met had somethin'  to tell about what a really, truly heart-  buster she was. She learned to rido,  an' one afternoon she an' the Qolonoi  struck our outfit just in front of a  howliii' storm.  The' wasn't no show to get back to  headquarters that night, so we smoothed out thc wide bunk i'or the lady,  an' us men planned to flop in the shod.  She sure had dandy manners! She  pitched" iu au' helped us get supper;  an' we had about everything to oat  that a man could think of���������������������������side meat  an' boiled beans an' ram an' corn-  bread an' baked beans an' flapjacks an'  -f-ried���������������������������potatoes=an^=bcan���������������������������soup^=an-?=uof���������������������������  foe so stout that you couldn't see the  bottom in a - teaspoonful of it. Wo  just turned ourselves loose an' -gave  her a banquet.  As soon as the dishes was olf our  hands, we started in Lo be jovial. Me  .���������������������������in' tho Kid wasn't just altogether at  home, but Bill was right in his element.  Ho played, an' him an' hi; sang, an'  ihey talked, an' it "wa? the most fes-  ii"." function i ever so"; until lhc pup  I'.imo in an' jumped up on tho wide  bunk whore she was scttiu', "Oh,  take that horrid bulldog away!*' sho  squealed,  I dicaded tho result; but Y soz fo  myself, "Now surely thhf doggone ijit  won't throw a call-down into tho lady,"  but   hc  did.      ".Miss   Johnston,"   so'/.  a  in  in, "that ain't no bulldog. _ That's a  high hied London bull-terrier. How  would you like to bo called a China-  Minn?     Come here, Cupid."  It was liko throwin' a bucket o'  wafer on a bed o' coals. Bill was like  an oyster from that on, an' the girl  looked as if she'd been slapped. I was  mad all the way through. It's all  right for a man to bo crazy, if he'll  only keep it private, but the' ain't no  sense in tryin' to get the whole balance  o' creation over to his side.  Tho Colonel thought it a mighty  prime joke to have his niece called  down ovor a bull pup, an' ho chuckled  about it consid'ablc. Next mornin'  he made Bill promise fo come over an'  visit him; but the girl said her goodbyes tn me an1 the Kid. From ��������������������������� that  on' Bill was over to headquarters half  his time, but it didn't do him much  good. The girl wouldn't stand for thc  pup, an' Bill wouldn't go back on him;  so if looked purty much like a deadlock.  One Sunday about thc first of August, wo was all sittin ' in the shade  of the shack, lookin1 down the valley.  Thc shuck backed up' against a massive crag on the edge of a high plateau. The road from headquartero came  in. from the north, wound around a  steep butte, then along the top o' thc  cliff  to   where.'  it   slid "down   into  valley to Danders.-  Wo heard the thud o' hoo fa an ' turu-  in' around, wo saw tho Colonel's neice  tciirin' down tho road on a big hoss.  It was a plain case of runaway, an' I  fell something break intddc my chest.  They were he.ulin' straight for the top  o' the clilT, the hoss was goin" too fast  to make the turn, an' we was too far  off to beat him  to it.   -  Wo simply stood thoro like a llock  o' sheep, without a singlo thought  among us. Tho' didn't seem to bo a  thing fo do, but just watch 'em plunge  two hundrod feet into the ravine. ' T  glanced at Bill, but I hardly knew him.  His brows was drawn down like a wildcat's, his jaws was clamped so tight  you could hear 'em grit, an' his eyes  seemed  to smoke.  I looked back to thc road again, an'  there was the pup, standin' down by  the road watchin' the hoss ruunin'.toward him. J. touched Bill on the  shouldov, an soz, "Can the pup do anything, Bill?" Bill gave a sigh as  though he had just come back from the  dead, an'.in a voice that wavered a-n'  trembled, but still rang out like a trumpet, hc yelled: "Throw him, Cupid,  throw hini! "  Lord, man! f wish you could have  seen it. The mane brisUe'd up on that  dog's back an' his muscles bulged out  till ho looked liko a stone image. Wo  heard hini give a low whine, like as if  he knowed it was too big a job for a  littlo feller like him. But did he try  to Munl-fit? -Nrot him. Then I knew  'at he wasn't noithor a bulldog nor a  bull-terrier, but a littlo sixty-pound  hero, willin' to pass out his life any  time 'at Bill would -draw a check for  it.  We fair belt our breath as hc backed  away from the road an' took a little  easy gallop until the hoss was near  even with him. Another dog would  have blown his lungs loose, tellin' what  he was a-goin' to do; but Cupid never  said a word.- His lip curled up till you  could catch thc glisten of those wicked  white teeth of his, an'-then when the  hoss was right alongside an' it looked  as if he had lost his chance, he gave  a couple of short jumps an' throw himself for fhe critter's nose.  . Well, I can't" rightly tell you just  what .did-happen then.- I saw him  make his'spring an- swing around full  sweep, haugiu'-ou to the" boss's nose;,  but from that on Life-whole earth seemed to bo shook loose.' ^'-xThe hoss keeled  over"like .he was shot, the_-girl" seemed  to turn a somerset in the air,-an' light  all in a heap, with" one arm haugin'  over thc edge of the" cliff. We heard  a shriek, a little smothered yelp, an'  then we ran down to them.  Bill looked first-toward tho-girl aii'1  then toward the pup, an' it was tearin'  his heart apart to tell which one hc  would go to first. Finally he ran to  the-girl an--carried-her back from the  clifl". Jle kneit an; put his ear to her  heart, then hc took her,.wrist an' after  what scorned a mighty long time, he  gave a. little sigh, an' sez, "Kid, run  for some water.,. Kim! What do you  stand lookin' at'me for?"  Tho Kid, ho certainly did run, while  Bill stepped over to where Cupid was  layin', still an' quiet, but with a piece  o' the boss's nose still in his grip.  The boss's right shoulder was broke  an' hc couldn't get 115, but was thrash-  in' an' strugglin' around. "Get your  gun an' put that hoss out of his misery,  Happy," sez Bill, an' the' was somethin' in his tone that filled mc plumb  full 0' the spirit of action.  When I came back, the Kid was  pourin' a bucket 0' water over the  girl, an' Bill, with the tears rollin'  ^ti'wnHii'H=clrecksT=A\,'as=="Ocolin"J=ovor=the-  body of tho little bull-pup. I put the  muzzle to within an inch 0' the soft  spot in tho hoss's forehoiid, an' fired.  Tho hoss's head sank, an' thon I gulped  a couple, o' times like a flabby galoot,  her most. Bill started: to look at it;  but she reddened up an' tried to draw  it under her. Bill never paid any  attention to her, but sez calmly. "I've  had eonsid'able experience, Miss '.Johnston- A great deal depends on promptness. .Now just let the limb lay natural  till I remove_tlie shoe."  Me an' the Kid started' to break for  the foothills, but he"set me" to makiii'  bandages, an' sent the Kid after some  We  was  Josin'  our  voice   sounded  ige  like  more  water,  fast,   an'   I  grandpa's.

We both got back before davlight,  an' by that timo Bill an' the. girl  had come to a purty harmonious agreement concernin' the proper standin' of  .1 brindlc bull-terrier.

QUEEN  BESS'   SILK  STOCKINGS  Lt has been asserted that silk stockings were first worn by Henry IT. of  Prance, on the occasion of tlio marriage  of his sister, in lfloO; but, boforc that  period, Edward VI. of England had received a pair from the "merchant  prince" of the time, Sir Thomas Gres-  ham. who imported them from Spain,  the country, it is thought, wherein they  were   first  manufactured.  There is a tradition that a grandoe.  the happy possessor of the first pair of  silk stocking made in Spain, thought  hc could make no more appropriate disposition of tho novel utilities than to  present thom to his queen, and to that  end he placed them in the hands of the  Minister of State. Greatly to tho consternation of thc well-moaning grandee,  the Minister returned him his stockings,  intimating that he would do well to  bear in mind that "tho Queen of Spain  has no legs."  Elizabeth of England, however, not  ashamed to own that she had lege, received a similar gift in a very different  manner. Soon after her accession, Her  Majesty's woman, Mistress Montague,  tendered as her New Year's gift, a pair  of knitted black silk stockings, the first  of the kind mado in England. Elizabeth was so pleased with the Htockings,  which she declared wore "pleasant, fine,  DEATH MASK OFDANTE7 :: V  -'-If Florence, has actually "come"- iiitdV-  possession of ..the death-mask "of-'Dante"  it owns-'a treasure of-"unique" interest. ^:  Ihcre is no reason Why,tho relic, should-:  not be genuincTbut there seems-to-be",  no   positive  proof  that- it", is- genuine.,'  It was discovered-iu 1830 bv "the'sculp->-  tor Bertolini.

Before  the   occupation the Filipino would have nothing  to do with any water that was not of  surface origin.     And he used very little  of that.     Jfe had a Tooted distrust of  the      subterranean    supply.

But now he has learned  the virtues of the artesian well.      Dr.  Heisor, health, director for tho Philippines, says that he needs no longer   to  plead for wells, as he did iu the early  days;   no  candidate   for  the  assembly  has any slightest chance of cloction unless ho pledges himself to vote for all  the   artesian   wells   his  district   needs.  With more abundant water assured, tho  Filipino is taking to fhe bathtub habit  too.  THE UNSINKABLE GARMENT  A remarkable demonstration was  given the other day in the Spree, near  Berlin, of a new fabric designed to  mako clothing so buoyant that it will  keep its wearer afloat in tho water.  The composition of the invention which  brings about this result is a well-guarded secret. To don a garment lined  with it is to become -unsinkable. On  the occasion mentioned, infantrymen,  in full marching kit,-clad in uniforms  lined with the material, which rendered  tho clothing neither heavier nor thicker than usual, threw themselvos into ihe  water, and not only did not sink, but  wore able to "march" in the water and  to fire. At thc same time coffee was  served to a party in the water, wa'tor  a-nd guests being clad in the special  fabric. It is r< ported that recently  the inventor, wearing hie suit, jumped  into the water before the Kaiser's  steamer to demonstrate tho value of his  rlovice and that the police arrestod him  for impropriety!  108  i J  I  V.

Karly in the- summer Agnes Laut wrote an article for an  American weekly in which she pointod out to the Americans  mo absurdity of lushing madly abroad in search of wonders  and .scenery and ignoring their own country. The same  applies equally well to Canadians. Off the beaten line ol  travel, in by-ways aside from the railway, scenery and  people can be found as un-Canadian and "different" as  though itwere a strange land. Our cosmopolitan population,  with thoir peculiar customs and language, give much the  same variety tha4 can bo got'in foreign travel, and it is a  fine thing to be familiar with one's own country. British  Columbia is the wonder province of Canada and to any one  in search of variety and adventure, it is a perfect gold mine.  In school days it wa6 always impressed upon us- that  bold and rugged country, combined with soft and gentle  nooks produced the iineBt inen. "The mountain and the  flood" aro supposed to be responsible for the brawn and  muscle, while the- contrast of wild and rugged landscape  with the soft beauty of the valleys .fires the imagination and  produces tho poet and the painter. If this be true British  Columbia will have the lion's share for Canada, and ,we may-  look there for giantsf mental as well as physical. Already  the physical giant has appeared in great numbers; and it  will be hard-for any mere poet to sing more beautifully of  his beloved province than does Mr. Philips-iu "The Lake."  I can give only a few excerpts: .  "Hark, that small song! ' -  The   reed-wren   pipe's  his  lay.  Cheery he dwells,  Nor bodes he that dark day  When icy Winter's blast " '-  Shall bid-all Nature stay. 7'-  And this, with its musical second line.    It sings itself.  "See where the mere-hen by yon golden cup,  A"' Mated lily lingering last alone,  With furtive glance sinks-to th-j head, and n.  A circling "eddy leaves, as when some  trout  .

In spite-of a few peculiarities Vancouver Island is a  heavenly spot. .

Only in  -the spruce woods would we got a full-lunged, invigorating  breath, and we missed our blood-stirring prairie wind, for  here there is ho motion in the air and wind is unknown.  The person who desires a life of indolence, eating and-  drinking of'the best in creation, should settle on-Vancouver  Island. "The woods are full of game and native fruits, fish  of all kinds swarm in ,both "fresh and salt water; and we  have heard that very fine potatoes can be produced on the  island; but so far it'.is merely a matter of faith with ns, as  we have'not yet seen anything on either the island, ,or the  mainland, that would be considered worth -calling a potato  in Manitoba. " ���������������������������  We fondly imagined that when once we reached this-land  of fruit, we should be able to make up for all our lean and  fruitless years in Manitoba, but ouco more we were doomed  to disillusionment.

Be-;  side Pericles, in whose harmony, grace, and dignity of'bear-'  ing the 'genius of -Athens was personified; Socrates looked  like a victim of Olympian malice.1     ��������������������������� ���������������������������      ' " ?'  -But to'.the wise the worst things"have their higher uses.,  and Socrates turned his striking ugliness to the best account."  He treated, it humorously, and adroitly made it serve the  purposes of.contrast. It was the badly maYle"easc iu which  the-images of virtue, wisdom, steadfastness, and kindness  were stored. It sent the glances of his disciple's and hearers  inward, and behind the mask they found a noble countenance; for, while, the face is a matter of physical structure,  -flesh,^anfUfeatures,==the^counten.ance=is=tho='cxpression=-with-  whieh the soul illumines and radiates it, the shining through  of the spirit of the man. IUs ugliness made Socrates more  fervent in his 'devotion to beauty and more eager in his  search of its secret. lie believed so deeply in thc* goodness of the gods, that he refused to accept ugliness as his  uncscapabie fate. Since beauty was the highest form of  being, it must be within reach of-all who made life'a true  service of the gods.  This thought of the ultimate harmony lay at the very  base of his view of life, and to attain the inward beauty  was his earnest prayer., "Grant me," he said.-"to be  beautiful-in the inner man, and"all"T"have~of "outer'thiiigs"  to be at peace with those within. May j. count the wise  man only rich; and may my store of gold be such as none  but thc good can bear!" To be beautiful and to be rich���������������������������  could any prayer bo more inclusive of the things which  most men eagerly desire? But could any prayer be more  unlike that which lies unformulated on tho lips of-a host of  those who pursue beauty and riches as if they were outward  possessions? Socrates, being a wise man, knew that they  were inward possessions, not to" bo secured by striving -  to be attained by growth. To gain wealth in things without gaining wealth of spirit seemed to him a monstrous irony  of the gods; a terrible defeat of thovery purposes for which  life was planned by the higher powers. The contrast between wcaitu in things and poverty of soul, of which 'the  society of today affords so many examples, seemed t him  like a kind of m ckery of men, an irony so deep and bitter,  that only offended gods could have devised it in their scorn  or the blindness of mon.  To be outwardly beautiful and inwardly 'ugly is to be  a beguiling imposter; to be outwardly rich aiicl inwardly  poor is to be a beggar wearing splendid apparel over rags.  It is also to be the victim of a ceaseless,warfare; for no  man is-at peace uutil his soul and his life are in accord. Nor  is any man happy to whom more wealth has come than can  be borne in perfect integrity of nature. The wealth that  deadens a man's sympathy, nervates his will, makes him dependent on -the services of others and the c mfortof things,  tosters -elfishness and puts content with condition in place  of content of spirit, is disguised impoverishment; he alone  is rich whose wealth in things is tempered, spiritualized,  and administered by a soul rich in kindness, brotherliness,  and wisdom.  MEXICO TODAY  Political conditions in Mexico are not  far removed from chaos. There is a  nominal government; but it seems un  able to sustain public order;' indeed,  there is reason to doubt���������������������������if it leally desires public order. The presidential campaign has degenerated into a guerrilla  light in the rural districts and into mob  turmoil in the capital. That out of  this ruck of passion and lawlessness  there can come anything bearing the  semblance of moral credit, and the  powers of orderly administration���������������������������not  to speak of representative legitimacy���������������������������  is not to be expected. It looks as if Mex  ico, leffto her own devices, would sink  to the level of her Central and South  American neighbors���������������������������become a incie  field of contention between the contend  ing schemes of political and military  ambition and of financial exploitation."  When the character of the Mexican  population.is considered, it is not easy  to see how anything better-than,-poli  tical and social chaos can be expected  without the ascendancy of some strong  and military dominant personality. Out  of an approximate total of 115,000,000  inhabitants only 10 per cent., or les*  than one-fifth, are of pure, or. nearly  pure, white biood; and this element, be  it remembered, belongs to a race dense  ly ignorant in all but its higher castes  and absolutely without experience oj  understanding of representative institutions as they exist in the United States.  It is" a race drilled through ages"*" of  subordination to military authority, un  derstandirig nor'respect no other. Regarded racially und politically,*" the  Spanish, Mexieansj'are close kin to the  ruling castes in other Central, and  South American "countries, who are for  ever illustrating their .propensity for  fighting and their incapacity to oigau-  ize or accept representative institutions.  Upon this^foufndation there is supei-  imposed a race of.mixed bloods compris  ing 43  per cent,  of the whole population, and an aboriginal race (Tndians),  38 per cent.     Of this mixed and native  population    only    a    very   .small. fraction  can   be. regarded as civilized, ap  proximately  one-seventh-of the ^entire  population' (Indians)  not    being    able-  even to speak Spanish. ��������������������������� Illiteracy is all  but-univcisal.      True, there "has been  an effort to enforce primary education,  but "the latest-available reports, on the  subject exhibit.upwards..of '10,000,000  unable either to"read "oi Avrite, approxi  mately:%000,000 ablerboth ,to read-a'nd  write, .with- approximat'elyJialfa^miP  lion'able to read' but Vot-write."

DEATH AFTER A SCRATCH  Morris  Quatzam.   an   eleven-year-old  Windsor boy, fell  off his bicycle'"and  scratched his wrist.    He thought notb  ing of the injury, but .blood poison sel  in and he is dead.  Such incidents as these���������������������������by no mean.-  infrequent���������������������������ought to make people realize thc danger that may lie even in ib<*  smallest flesh wound. -^  Take a simple illustration. When .i  knife, a rusty needle, a splinter of  dirty wood, a barbed wire fence, or a  thorn, scratches the hand, tho latter in  inoewteted^ with germs, of which the  air about is full.  The way to avoid serious results is*  to cleanse the wound and apply Zam-  Buk.    Zam-Buk is a powerful, yet pain-    ���������������������������  less germ-killer, and when   applied  to ,  tho broken  skin  is absorbed   into  the-  tissue,  instantly destroying thc  genn������������������  that spread  disease and   stopping  tht*  pain and smarting.   That is why Zam  Buk is 'so popular with children.  The'flesh  thus soothed and punned,'  the wound is made penectly healthy,  and all poison and cause_ ofo festering  removed.   Having done this, Zam-Buk'  then   proceeds  to  heal   tbe  wound   or  sore, and  new healthy  tissue is  built-  up   in   a   quick,  painless  and   perfect  manner. - n   "'  Zam-Buk must not be confusod with "  ordinary    ointments.

A. R. ROGERS LUMBER CO., Enderby  HORTICULTURAL  SOCIETY  Editor Tbe Enderby Press:  Dear Sir: I would appreciate room  in your paper to ask consideration of  the Horticultural Society, which was  lately organized in Enderby. I have  no credit or blame for adding one  more to the many organizations of  the town. I am connected with this  one in answer to the request of a  number who desired to promote the  interest in flower growing,, etc. And  the idea has my hearty approval and  sympathy. The purposes of the organization cover all that may properly come under the head of amateur  gardening, flowers, fruit, vegetables,  house plants, the useful and the beautiful, if such a 'distinction may be  made. . The Society wishes also to  enlist the interest of the children in  this work. It purposes an annual  show, and perhaps more than one;  also to encourage the, study of good-  gardening. '.  The Canadian people are deficient  in some things, and one of these- is  the love and cultivation of what is  beautiful. We destroy with vandal  carelessness what is beautiful in Nature and then leave- the room to  thistles, and Chinese lettuce.  Enderby,    like    most" other  places,  has suffered   irreparable. loss in the  destruction of   its native trees.     It  ought by    nature   to be a park, and  it is a field of weeds.'.  It is so situated as to be    fitted to be. the most  beautiful  town    in - the  Valley.  ���������������������������   it  may.never be the largest, but.it,may  be made the   prettiest.'    Possibly it  may not ..be   as   well-laid out as it  might have been for this purpose, but  we must make the best of 'the situation as we   find   it.       The improvements which are   .being made on the  town' ought to be an incentive to all  its citizens to    lend their individual  efforts to   make    it more attractive  and homelike and beautiful.     To help  in this is the w.ork of the Horticultural Society.       And   the seeking of  this end has also its bearing on the  character of its people.     We are better men and    women for cultivating  what is beautiful in our surroundings.  Nicely-kept gardens  have their influence    on    thc    character of children.  Ancl in after years they-will still remember the   home    of childhood the  more warmly because of it.     It is an  important    part   of our civilization.  Strangers and visitors to a town are  attracted by it."    We are a'busy peo-  :ple___in_-a^ne.w=countr-y-^but=the=garden=r  is recreation and rest.  Let us try to make Enderby the  prettiest place in the Okanagan.  Give the flower plot a place amongst  the recreations cf its children and  young people. It is the best and  biggest means of recreation in its  season.       If we are to do justice to  ^ -"L^:-"?1.1?*^.. Prepare before _hand .for.  the coming Spring.'

A. HENDERSON, Esq,, Manager, Vernon A. E. TAYLOR, Manager Enderby.  has already placed Enderby at the  top notch of possible garden spots in  this favored Valley. And the combined effort of our people organized  as they now can be as members of  thc Horticultural Society will result  in far greater things next year. We  are in need of such organization. In  the winter months we should be able  to formulate a plan upon which all  can work when Spring opens, thus  systematizing the work with''the object of getting the best results.  The public improvement work of  the past season has been the start of  a new era in the history of Enderby.  It has placed Enderby in a position  with the other cities of the Valley,  and has given her a place of preeminence as the Home City. Next  year will be another "growing year."  Big    things'   are   looming   up.      We  tion  the false position taken by the City.  Property values were kept absurdly  low and the rate of taxation correspondingly high. To reverse this order would, we believe, be the greatest boon to the town. Our property  values have always been too low. It  has had a detrimental effect upon the  progress of the city; it has acted to  the loss of every property owner in  the city. And it has not accomplished the purpose intended by the  framers of the policy. The object at  the start was to keep property values down in order to reduce the tax  payments. But. in the working out  the policy proved a failure, for while  the property valuation was low, the  rate of taxation had to raise in order to find the necessary money to  carry on the business of the Corpora-  shall be ln a position to meet them.  To make this "The Town Beautiful"  will require combined effort, and a  lot of hard, intelligently directed  work. By tile" arganization of the  Horticultural Society the right start  has been made'. Everyone interested  in making Enderby" the garden spot,  it can and "should be made, will be  pleased to read-Mr. Campbell's communication, and to -learn of the active interest being taken. And all  who are'really in earnest about it  will make"it a point to assist the'.so-  ciety in the work it "has inaugurated.  POINT WELL' TAKEN-  There can hardly be any difference  of opinion on the question raised by  Real Estate, -in. another- column of.  "this paper. . He takes the position  that it is better for Enderby property  values-to be increased'for assessment  purposes, and the rate'of taxation  lowered correspondingly, than for,the  existing absurdity to continue. We  heartily agree with Real Estate in  this position. Two years or more  ago we called attention repeatedly to  The effect of such a policy has at  all times worked against Enderby,  and will continue- to be detrimental  so long as it is perpetuated. - The  other towns in the Valley' assess the  land at its real value. The result.is  a. lower rate of taxation, ��������������������������� which  works out to the advantage of the  property ,6wner, and.to^the town.

When we come to recognize wherein  we are weak, we may be led to take  the first step towards a remedy^ And  that brings me*to the consideration  of the third proposition.  Permit me to digress into ancient  history for awhile.     In 1863 the Fac-  bred Shorthotns to breed up again.  Thc steer calves were saved as well  as the heifers. For a few days these  were fed the whole milk, then supplementary feeding was instituted:  sweet whey, hay tea, with linseed  meal for- a few weeks brought on the  valves so that by the time they were  put on grass they made satisfactory  gain. The district became noted for  its .butcher cattle, and not many  years elapsed before these Shorthorn  grade steers began to be sought after  and the buyers were soon in evidence.  The introduction of the Shorthorn  sire so improved the grade of both  cows and steers, and feeding was reduced to such a system, that soon a  monthly market was established,  buyers coming from Montreal and  Toronto, bidding for choice lots for  the export trade. In every herd on  an average, there are more steers  than'heifer'calves,' and'on that line  the Shorthorn redeemed the situation  and for the last 30 years has been  making    wealth.      In   the county of  tory system was introduced into" On- Middlesex ther,;e ��������������������������� were in 1861, 19,006  tario.' Sometime'in the early 70's it |cows, in'1901,' "46,491.

There is economy in this arrangement, besides a  more marked improvement in using  matured sires,, and by the time the  eight." year itenerary was. completed  we might look for heifers ranking almost as pure   bred.  I have a great deal more to say on  this subject, but will relrain, hoping  this will suffice to elicit a discussion  and the starting of some plan for the  benefit of all.  In conclusion, I may say /though  personally favorable to F the Shorthorn, yet will go with the majority  in the adoption of any one of the six  recognized dairy breeds, Shorthorn,  Ayreshire, Jersey, Guernsey, Holstein  and French-Canadian.

It is generally conceded that  tnere is a ^difference of at least five  seconds between a first-class half-mile  track and a first-class mile track, so  when this is .taken into consideration,  Uhlan's mile at Goshen was equal to  a in iio in J.n7v'_.

There is as much difference between  a roadster and a draft horse as there is  between a steam-plow and an automobile. The nature of the work done by  each of these two classes of horses has  so influenced their inner mechanism  that in order to produce results, they  must receive energy, making food peculiarly suited to thc nature of their  work. Thorofoie, the lation of the  driving horse should bo different from  lhat of the average work horse. Drivers  should receive much less roughage in  proportion to their size than horses  performing .work calling for slower  action,  and therefore a slower run of  blood. The driver must be an animal  of endurance and mettle. Therefore,  he must be fed roughage which- Avill  not cause overloading of the stomach  and "washiness." 'Timothy hay prevents this and keeps the animal in tip  top shape, provided his grain ration is  sufficient. Clover hay is too loosening  and is very annoying in" its results  upon a driving horse of any kind. Then,  too, from an economic point of view,  you cannot afford to' use clover hay  for this purpose. Clover hay is adapted for production of flesh and flesh  products, not for the production- of  fast work.- Don't excuse yourself for  feeding clover because jrou haven't  timothy. This is not a mattor of convenience, it is a matter of economies,  and it will pay you to buy in a load  or two of timothy nnd make preparation for hay of that nature next season.  ftarly in the nineteenth century when  several states prohibited horse racing  at fairs many predicted the end of  breeding, but the trotter held its own.  Thc same thing occurred at succeessive  stages of history, , The many things  that   were   ^expected    to   relegate   the  0 '''  horse to the background were: the introduction of railroads, the ravaging  effect of the Civil War, the introduction  of bicycles, the introduction of automobiles, bnt the trotter still hold his own.  2^ow cunies a prediction that thc  using of automobiles, motorcycles and  aeroplanes as attractions ut county  fairs will interfere with horse���������������������������racing.  Harness racing gained in favor and  reached it.s zcinth live ur six vears ago.  The management, offered several thousand-dollar stakes, and big purses were  the rule rather thau the exception. This  brought out good sport for two seasons.  Then the big stakes failed to fill and  fivo-hundred-dollar stakes were substituted. These did not fill and the management returned tu purses, which were  not so largo as formerly. This year  thrco hundred dollars was tho high  water maik. Tho number of horses  making thc smaller tracks dwindled in  proportion. Six years ago fair secretaries would have been alarmed at such  a situation. The patrons demanded  racing, and the fair that did not furnish first-class speed contests did not get  the crowds. <���������������������������  But today the managers see nothing  alarming in the failure of harness horses  to come to the half-mile tracks. This  year some fairs did not even offer harness purses. Others, more conservative,  retained the harness programme, although few made a vigorous campaign  for entrants. Wherever harness racing  was eliminated or curtailed, automobile  and motorcicycle racing was substituted.  The public today is speed mad. This  is as true of the people in the country  as it is iu the city. Motor racing makes  a direct appeal to this speed mania.  They cut harness records in two and  then cut them again. Also there is the  added element of personal danger which  adds zest to any sport. .The aeroplane  is another newcomer tondiug to displace  the harness horse, and is no uncommon  feature at county fairs this summer..  It is a matter of experience that at  a meeting where harness and gasoline  apt to grow impatient at the, harness  events. The delays incident to scoring,  races are both carded, the crowds are  thc lesser speed, and the frequent scarcity of entrants are some of the reasons  for the spectators' dissatisfaction.  Thc management finds gasoline races  loss expensive. Two first-class automo  bile races caii' be pulled off for one  horse race. They cost less money and  they involve less work. This week  twelve high-power racing machines were  attracted-, to our local track by purses-  aggregating-one-third of the ..amount  offered for harness races.-' dn the other  hand there were barely enough harness  horses atthe track to make two races,  ATTACKED BY  BRONCHIAL CATARRH  Uoui-il Brooke P.

Of course, the foregoing is applicable  principally to small tracks, but many  grand circuit horses begin in the half-  mile, courses, and there aro always-a  large number of harness devotees racing  in thc small circuits who follow it for  the sport itself, and not because of large  financial inducements. These' men constitute a considerable portion of the  horse-racing army, and aro thc ones  who will suffer should the small tracks  eliminate1 horse racing, and go in for  aviation aud motor racing.

for justification.   The deacon dodged,      last chapter of the tragedy had detained
The 'few witnesses in the case had
, been examined and cross-examined. The
evidence, pitifully scant pro and overwhelmingly strong con, had been vigilantly sifted by the attorneys and measured out to the jury, till in thc shifty-
eyed presence of the crumpled bit of
humanity in the prisoner's box.
As   tho   judge   rose,   pompous   and
paunchy,   to   make   his   charge  to   the
jury, the foreman of that insignificant
body leaned back iu his arm chair, complacent iu the prospect of tho ease with
which a verdict must be arrived at.
The  performance  of his duty,  how-
,   ever, was no trivial matter to the conscientious deacon.   His solemn sense of
its importance he had expressed'by don-
niug his long, funereal frock coat. That
his function was not exactly religious,
only somberly and seriously secular, like
acting  as    pallbearer   at  a   wcek-day
funeral,  ho  had indicated  by  wearing
his  gray flannel  shirt and  second-best
brownish   gray   trousers.   Hc -was  unpleasantly  conscious,  too,-that in  the
''���������-.- worldly   anxiety   connected ' with .this
-    ��������� disagreeable business, he had-disturbed
with his fidgetly. fingers thc Sabbatarian  sleekness "of "his  insufficient  gray
\ hair.-- '
���������';   , Protesting,   shocked," irritated" digits
they wore, for the details of the trial
.had been most'unpleasant even though
the facts had not seemed elusive.   For
generations in five counties round about,
no such calamity as a murder and its
consequent" catastrophes   had   blighted
the public good name'.   Human wicked-
noes in the abstract was a favorite subject   of- invective   for  the   deacon   in
prayer-meeting; human sin in practise
. he .found  not  only  offensive but disconcerting..

From its duty depths showing ebon-
blacA in the yellow-sheen of- the afternoon sun glint, a fly was buzzing a
futile and stupid attempt to escape.
What tliere could bo in the frantic
humming of a foolish fly thus to ensnare any sano man's'attention the
deacon could not understand.
Ifthe insect had one atom of sense,
it would see that the avenue of flight
lay just above its purposeless circling.
With an uncomfortable sense of impact,
the deacon's eyes met'the eyes of Matthews. A slow btrange ghost of a smile
shadowed the thin brown face of the
juror. Wifeless, childless, he had lived
too much alone, decided tho gregarious
deacon.
"I repeat, gentlemen of the jury, the
circumstances must prove bevond all
possible refutation, the guilt of the accused," cautioned the judge's voice.
, Back to a sense of his responsibility
in the burden of the life or death of
tliis whimpering culprit, shuddered the
deacon.
"The wages of sin," he whispered
to himself to fortify his spirit- as the
judge concluded his instructions. A
perturbation of mind~too general to bo
called - doubt, born of .what parent
thought he knew not, ruffled the stern,
unrelenting quality of-his earlier decision. "Thou shalt not kill," might be
as stringently laid" on the foreman of
the jury as ,'on the criminal in the dock.
Absentmindedly, oven to inattentive-
ness, ho watched the closing formalities.
,An awesome sense of the inevitability
of the thing, of the finality of the
overt, seized upon him- with the sharp
click of the latch of the jury-room door.
For two' heartbeats, he permitted' himself to heresy of .condemning any. gov-
ermental system and social order that
had power thus to mavo a dozen" men

Jarred loose from his traditions, bewildered by the whirl of unaccustomed
events and ideas, the deacon turned toward the jury-room door.

": away "on  his- return- froni town"~about

��������� nearest house:dwo!ler, had slept, solitary

the man, hysterical, even half-delirious,
trying to stop the,flow of blood from
a great wound in the-woman's breast.
That "he should deny all knowledge of
the source of her injury, that ho should
declare that she diod from a mysterious
shot fired from out thc darkness, was
only human,' perhaps, but dismally ineffective.
Two empty cartridges in his gun ho
explained by showing tho remnants .of
"" two-quail- left" 'from -their ~ suppor,��������� a
natural defense but silly in the face-of
the facta. A gambling outfit had beon
discovered in tho search of the wagon.
This man had walkod in tho counsel of
tho "ungodly; theroforc he must not
stand iu the judgmont.
""He had refused consistently to give
any information about himself or his
wife; even his name was unknown. He
had called upon no friends for help.
To the deacon, a highly influential member of a numerous and wealthy farmer
clan, this hopeless alonencss was in itself a most incriminating feature of the
trial. Furthermore, thc accusod had
declined persistently the comforts of
religion and the inquisitively proffered
services of both pastor and people.
For confirmation iu this judgment the
deacon looked down the line of olevon
formers' faces turned toward the
judge''s instructions. Ten jurors were
earnest but unruffled, woll-fed, narrowly shrewd, honest,' not widely va'rying
types of tillers of tho soil. Sincerely
searching for the truth, this decade of
the deacon's old friends and neighbors
listened with a realization of the grim-
ness of their duty.
The twelfth man, John Matthews, thc
otitlandor, choson at the last moment as
talesman to complete the panol, watched
with strained widely opened eyes not
the'judge's exposition of their function
but.some point in space which the deacon'could not at first locate. Following the ,line of the man's steady gaze,
tho deacon finally discovered, that the
object of the unwavering scrutiny was

of tuedivided vote. Ho braced himself
for-the struggle to bring those deflant,
forbidding eyes to reason.
One ballot should" have decided' it.
Surely this grisly task needed no additional burden of- difficulty. Clayton

dimly heard his ' own voice tremble
through' the familiar, heartrending message. In his great need- the .words
brought firm assurance; but.no yielding

Thoy promised to bo troublesome.
" 'Moreover,'it is required in stewards that a man be found faithful,' "
repeated tne foreman, with his eyes
persistently melting at the rigor -of
Matthews' own.        '        - ���������     -

the deacon watched the bloodless lips
affirm. '    '-
"Beyond all . reasonable human

/v laugh that sent the deacon's fingers
clutching his palms, distorted thc set
anguish of the talesman's face. A
doubt of fhe man's sanity checked thc
deacon's roply.
'"Boyond all possible human doubt,"
he  found  himself  repeating inanely.
The fire of physical.pain and mental
distress burned in the juror's deathlike
pallor, giving an instant's color.
"The man ain't proved guilty," and
somo innor flame glowed in his dogged
persistence.
"Beyond all reasonable doubt," repeated the deacon against his own volition.
"The judge said not to convict on
circumstantial evidence," and the deacon wondored if his own perturbed
fancy had tricked him into hearing a
wistful tone in the words.
"Except when it proves beyond all
possible human doubt the'guilt of the
prisoner at thc bar;" quoted the deacon,
impelled by some motive forco outside
himsolf.
A lot you know about the prisoner
the speaker, the deacon's own cousin,
who sat" at his right hand, Matthews
turned to thc-deacon again as tho seat
oi authority.
-'That niisciablc whelp theio, your
own kin, has five hired men on" his
place. His wife has had ten children,
and ain't never once had a hired girl
even in harvestin' and thrashin'. yho
don't even get enough to oat. All the
stingy cuss raises he sells; all hc can't
seil he feeds to the hogs; what thc" hogs
don't want the family gets. And yet
he 'sets there, a steward of the mysteries, passin' judgment on a stranger,
when he's the one himself that needs
hangin'.''
The deacon laid .a hand of precaution
on the fat, purple anger-spluttering man
beside him. Tho tenseness of tragedy
threatened to fall "into the bathos of
the comedy of a.cheap brawl, when tho
gray eyea burned his and "the-rasping
voice stung again his startled ears.
"When did you ever kiss your wife?
When did you ever get her a new dress?
When did you ever praise hor broad?
She had pretty clothes,' plenty enough,
when you and Doc x\shton was sparkin'
her. And she'd had them now if.she.'d
took Doc instead of you. D'you think
anybody'd be to blame but you-if she'd
go off with him and" leave you? It's
only because sho.'s too good to even
think of such a thing that she don't do
it. It's none of your good doin's .that
she hasn't." .And the voice shrilled
off into a "half-hystericalv sob.
The  man - was ,.crazy.      But a  cold
clutch gripped the deacon's breath,-at
the effrontery, of the man's suggestion.
Framed in its crinkly, gray hair,  the
placid, inscrutable 'face of his middle-
aged  mate  trembled  before his .misty
eyes. . A chill shook him at the thought
of "a possibility of her. loss. "���������      /,.    -
The chill;burned into a white beat
at the-thought of-.his old-tine-rival,
hated, perhaps-feared; even,after all

cedure; it'was ground into atoms forever by the force of a blinding, choking fellow_-feeling of rage, jealousy, wild
longing -for  revenge, a  desire to kill,
roused by the maundorings of this sane-

D'ye reckon he'd be saved, or would
his soul be lost?" querie'd his cousin at
his elbow,, bound in pachyderm.
The deacon looked at that individual
with new eyes. An unrighteous desire
to smash with his fist the smug primness
of that piggish face pulled the diaconal
features into an ungodly scowl.
"That's none of our business." the
deacon "replied sharply. "All we've got
to do is to bury the body."
THE EVOLUTION OF  SHOES
Thc earlier shoe was a sandaJ, most
frequently of hide or leathor, but sometimes of wood. Wheu one encounters
the word "shoe" iu the Bible, ho may
be sure that it is tho sandal that ia
commonly meant.
In'Egypt the sandal was woven of
palm leaves and papyrus. As a symbol
of the subjection of their"'enemies the
Egyptians often painted the figures of
their opponents on the lining of their
sandals.    -"   .
If _ utility was the first motive iu
woaring shoes, art and decoration soon
crept in. Ladies permitted themselves
great luxury in the attire of their feet.
The" sandal, became ' closely-, identified
with symbolism, "very much'in-the same
way that the glove did later. To throw
a sandal or shoe over a tract of land
was a^ symbol'"of possession; This is
the meaning, of the Biblical phrase,
"Over Edom will I cast my shoe."
In time the sandal camo to have
many forms. Two varieties developed
in Greece for use in dramatic1 perform=
ances: the sock- for comedjr,"the buskin
for tragedy., The buskin reached to
the knee, was, something like a high
Wellington boot) and showed very tbiok
soles,-intended to increase the rtature.
The sock reached paly ~ to the ankle,
and appears te have been worn when
quick movement was, desired.

modern shoe.-.., ."-There are in Eastern

 .The -deacon _and Jiis_colleagues7sat
paralyzed beforo this black chasm of
human experience which their nice philosophy of life could not bridge.-
"You sec, folks get in sometimes, too,

Following the deacon 's eye, tho men
rose from the table in unison like a
machine. Like men in a dream, they
filed from the jury-room. In a daze the
foreman heard the verdict, "Not

The murmur of surprise in the courtroom barely touched his ears. ��������� He was

PBIMITIVB SUBVEYING7
- According.-to'a-legend-of Smithtown,
Long iBland, the'township was original
ly measured "off by a primitive method
The-first settler was_> one-Smith, who
bought.from the Indians"as .much land
as a bull could-go around iu a day.
Now Smith had-a-smart-bull, trained
to carry him and to half-trot and half-
lope at a rapid pace. .That day the
-bulHwas^up^to^tlie^markT^By-rTiglit^iiF
had inclosed so much land that the
amazed Indians nicknamed its iider
"Bull Smith." "    ,
This tradition has itj counterpart
among the Boers of South Africa. Their
"runs," as the farms of"those Dutchmen arc called, contain, generally speaking, from four to six thousand acres, of
which only a few acres are unde.- cultivation. ��������� Small nionumonts of stones
piled- up at- certain^ points:_- mark__ the
boundary lines. "~"
The first settlers, knowing nothing of
surveying, measured off their "runs"
by horsc-powor. Ilaving piled up a lot
of stones, thc Boers would start from
thorn and ride in a straight 'line for
half an hour, as fast as their horses
could carry thom.
Halting, each ridor would build another beacon, and again ride for half
an hour at right angles to his first line.
Then hc would pile up another, stone
beacon. Two more turns and an hour
more of riding brought him back to
bis starting point,
The square tract inclosed within the
two hours' ride and the four beacons
became his farm. Of course, the Bper
who owned thc fleetest horse obtained
the l.viv-s!.  tract of land.

have their origin in a disordered liver,
which is a delicate organ, peculiarly

PRO BONO PUBLICO  XZXCZT  MUNICIPAL INCORPORATION  Editor The Enderby Press:  Dear Sir: According to your last  issue there seems a prospect of a  meeting to discuss organization of a  " municipality. I hope tbe meeting  will be held at an early date. Anyone at all familiar with the district  cannot but be struck with the i'dea  ancl wonder why it has not been  taken up before.  There is now a chain of organized  districts from here right down to the  lower Okanagan, and this is the only  link missing in what many of us believe to be the best part of the  whole.  Unlike our neighbors -at Salmon  Arm and Spallumcheen, we avoid the  financial and other difficulties in connection with city and rural incorporation in one, since Enderby is alregdy  organized as a city municipality and  ever will be independent of tbe rural  . municipality proposed. ��������������������������� The whole  -district is building up, and it is time  we had a distinctive name.  " A meeting of the B. C. Municipalities at "Victoria, the various matters  discussed, and- the attention that is  always paid to them by the Government, will convince anyone that they  are a,power.to be reckoned with.  Another matter which we must consider is that Mackenzie & Mann have  interested themselves in the Okanagan  7 and in-the near future it means tranv  - ways,   increased: telephones "and electric light."    - And -unless-there is, an  organized body to protect the .interests of this district, Pam afraid that  , we shall have   trouble in. the future..  .     There are   many , other advantages  which could be named, and if a meeting is called all could be brought out.  '  WM. OWEN."  columns to the 'disadvantage which  property owners in Enderby have  been under in consequence of the .very  ! great disparity between tbe actual  ! value of their property and the value  at which it stands recorded at the  City Hall.  This valuation, (in many cases it is  less than half the actual value) is a  vexatious obstacle in the way of selling or mortgaging property, as in  almost every instance the intending  purchaser or mortgagee, as a pre-'  liminary, goes or writes to the City  Hall to ascertain the am,ount at  which the property is assessed, and  when he finds the valuation there  placed upon the property so much  less than that at which the owner  values it, the property is naturally  depreciated in his estimation, to the  detriment of business and of the interest of the owner. r'  I have heard many complaints in  reference to this niatter, and trust  that now a new- assessment is to be  made this hardship will be removed,  and property put up to something  like its real value. .This does not  mean -increased taxation, as the rate  can be cut d'own in proportion as the  assessment is raised. This would  put matters on a sound basis, much  to the benefit of every property owner in'the city. - REAL ESTATE  Enderby, Nov. 28, 1911.
