' "     "  the past year could not be more  accurately shown than is mirrored in  the show windows and within the  ^'stores of Enderby merchants. Of all  seasons, the displays of Christmas  tide are the truest measure uf the  quality and general tone of the staple  stock. And one has but to open his  eyes and see in the store displays of  the past week, a reflex of the higher  standard set by the town in general.  The want that cannot be satisfied  in the large range of holiday goods  on display must be abnormal, for we  find everything, of the finest,- from  dolls and gee-gaws for the cnildren  to the largest and finest ranges made  1 in the    Dominion, ��������������������������� and dress  goods,  News of the Town and District  of Interests Enderby Readers  says.

It embraces a big, liberal added a handsome settee to" the sit-  well-painted Christmas greeting to.'ting room of the hotel, together with  everybody, and then some very clever'1 a- library ,'of choice" books. It is in  i color   cartoons   illustrative    of the'keeping    with   the - "general policy, of  impress of  ���������������������������brass novelties, "and-fineries as swell thoughts in the minds of. prospective \ this hotel.'   It   has.  the  and-'up-to-date   as could be found in land buyers, in   the prairies looking  the coast-metropolis. ~ And che prices this way-for, homes.   ._._ One -distinct  :this year,are another-evidence of the  quality of all   these   drawings" is the  ."progressive ; movement.."

Enderby,"Trading.C6.,7\t~looks' characteristic ,'.tqo.; little< brought;lout  strong-boost' :for .Enderby-which is  prominently., brought'.-:out. * -Jt is a  like "a city,'-store cleared .for .action,  with a mob of buyers crowded"--at the  ������������������������������������������������������ doors. Mr. . Dill has - exercised'' the  greatest care to detail in the- correct'  placing of.every   item in stock/ and  - anything wanted, arid wanted quickly,  .can /he had for the asking." The  stamp of quality is prominently on  display. . In the Grocery department  Mr. Woods has done likewise, and  here we see without doubt the display  of'a stock of gooa things to eat that  is not to be excelled in many a large  city. The windows are very tastily  arranged and exhibit the goods in a  manner _most temptingly.- In the  dress goods department, Miss Mc-  Intyre has a large range of the many  articles appropriate   as gifts tor the  ' ladies and children.  Mr. Reeves this year placed in stock  for his Christmas trade as fine a line  of   exquisitely-designed    articles     in  =brassware=as^could^be=found=anywhere  and at prices very reasonable. Of  course, he has all the other lines of  holiday novelties also, but this line  in brass has certainly been most  pleasing to his patrons who like the  good things. The ladies just dote  over those chafing dishes and brass  kettles, brass jardinieres, candle  sticks and trinket boxes; and the'men  look longingly at those smoker sets,  bronze ornaments and pipe racks.  The display at the Poison Mercantile Company's store runs largely to  white goods, with a dask of color  here and there and evergreens everywhere. Mr. Currie's display in the  dress goods department is certainly  attractive, and ' embraces so many,  many things of dreamy loveliness in  white it would take a lady reporter  to get them listed correctly. The  tor display at this store is exceptionally good, and is attracting the  boys and girls to come ancl take a  look.  Somebody has said that when we  come, right down to tacks, the  troubles of the rich man and the  poor man are about evenly divided.  The rich man hasn't money enough  to buy an appetite, and the poor man  hasn't money enough to buy the meal.  One has a square meal and a canary  appetite and the other a canary meal  and a square appetite. Let us digress  long enough to thank the good Lord  that in Enderby we have no canary  meals or canary appetites. Both are  square, all wool and a yard wide.  To cook the meals to satisfy the ap-  eveniby.the best of us,/and"shp'uld be  encouraged. . ,The .drawings" are- very,"  .cleverly executed, and "che- whole-de-  sign*pOf the window most' excellent.- It  was the work iof; Mr.- and "Mrs., Marris  who."see great possibilities for this  district. " - ' . .  The" windows " decorated by Ernest  Evans, are,most artistic, and it is a  pity hc has not something better to  work with. His color blending,and  general tone- are the best. His work  is greatly admired. In the store of  J. W. Evans &' Son will be found the  most complete stock of mechanical  toys, candies, fruits, etc., and at the  dry goods and gent's furnishings  counters they have a very fine selection of the useful articles on display.  Last week, in making a change in  the set-up of the Columbia Flouring  Mills advertisement, the printer inadvertently picked up a figure "5  for-^a-figure^e^  and the   mistake  cently opened for    business, has cap-  -TheyHive=next=doorTtlirCCl=a^good=sllare"of=the"Gtiristrrias;  trade    in    calendars,  papeteries,  and  Xmas cards and toys. They have introduced thc novelty of having Santa  Claus meet the children at their  store, where he will be found Friday  and Saturday afternoons from 3 to 4.  is a iommon one.  But we~didn't catch it in the proof.  In fact, in the rush to get the paper  out on time we didn't pull any proof.  We "railroaded" it. The result was  that there was a rush on the next  day at the mill. The ad red "Moffet's Best at ?1.55 a sack." it sho.uld  ^Y_e��������������������������� L"e_ad_7'$l_.65__ a sack..". _.It_.was  our mistake. "Moffet's Best" wholesales for more than $1.55 a sack. It  Bimply goes to prove that it pays to  advertise when you have a good  article to sell. Baker Burbidge says  that "Moffet's Best" is as good a  flour as there is in the world for  bread baking, and Baker Burbidge is  in a position to know���������������������������he's had. th  experience. And the bread baked by  Baker Burbidge is evidence enough of  the high quality of the home product.  The past season has been an exceptionally good one for the Enderby  mill, and the outlook for the new  year is bright.  F. Pyman has shown very handsome  silverware and jewelry for the holiday  trade, and has his store very prettily  decorated.  The butcher business gets right  down to the meat of things. The  holiday meat business is enormous.  Healthy people have good appetites.  To satisfy these appetites the meat  concerns of A. E. Maundrell and Geo.  R. Sharpe have stocked heavily of  the choicest of Christmas cuts, poultry, oysters and fish. Mr. Maundrell  is handling the large end of the locally   killed   poultry   business, while  quality, and, adds^materially to the  comforts" of the King Edward.

The stangcr took out a healthy  lookin' stack o' gold, Dick an' Jabez  did the same, an' my little squad o  yella i'ellers looked purty tol'able  squoczy. Dick was tremendous sober;  his face was pale, his eyes were hid  ��������������������������� away beneath his brows, an' kept  din-tin' here an' there like the eyes  of a hawk. Now, for mc, 1 alius have  a curious promonition when anything  is goin' to happen, an' I. began to have  it bad.  Still the longer we played the easier  Dick got in his ways, an' purty soon hc  was smilin-  as open-faced  as  a  dollar  watch.

About  half-past ten "Piker had to dig up some  more funds, an'  he'sez,  "It's  gettin  kind o' late, boys, let's raise-the edge a  bit       Hawkins there  has  had all  the  luck  so  far,  an'  when   it  changes  we  ought to have a show to get back our  riskiir's."

Part ot  the time Dick corfaled the pots, an  part of the time,me an' Piker'provided  shelter for, rem; but no niatter who  won. thc ol' man lost. ;  Twice he frowned purty serious, an  once I caught him givin' Dick a queer  hurt look. ' The ol' man hadn't a drop  o-' welchcr blood in his make-up; but  cheatin' was spelled in mighty red letters to 'im. Dick was smilin' now as  sweet as a girl baby, an' makin' funny,  joskin"' remarks, which was a new turn  for him; but at the same time the' was  somethin' in his laec that was n't altogether   pleasant.

Wc   had   doubled   lhe   edge   again   at  eleven, an' were usin' both thc strange  docks,'changin' every few deals.   Then  thc luck began to settle to Dick,    two  out of three" times on his own deals, an'  overv single time on  Piker's deals, the  dividends slid into Dick's coffers, while  1  was --rrowin' resigned to havin' had a  .rood run  for my money.     Jabez' face  Cvas -drawn -an-' -worried,- .which,   was  queer, 'cause he was alius a royal loser.  ���������������������������Ulast we had built up a Jour-story  iack-pot.  an'  every  feller's   face wore  tlio   takc-off-vourhnf-lo-mo   smile.       It  was  Dick's deal an' we all held  three  curds except Jabcz  who had  furnished  openers.      He only wintered through a  pair, but after he looked  at  his draw  |,0   settled   back   fo   enjoy   himseli.     J  held  three  kings an' a brace o    trays,  It looked to me as if lhat .iack-pot belonged   to   Happy Hawkins.

I  shall make no objections."     >  Jabez had slid deep into his chair, an'  now he had a fierce scowl on his face.  "That was mv toe you was a-pressin',"  he sez, lookin' Piker between the eyes.  "I. beg your pardon," sez Piker,  laughin'easy; "I thought it was Silv���������������������������  I mean Whittington's. I wanted him  to keep still until after,.this baud was  out. Then I'll be willin' to quit or go  back to the old limit, or keep right  along with the lid off."  j   crlanced  at  Dick;   an'  talk   about  jcrk-fightnin'!   AVell, I can't   sec   yet  what kept Piker from gettin! scorched;  but Jabcz was a iu good humor again  from lookin' at his royalty, so he turns  to Dick an' sez "Now,  Dick, Piker s  company, you know, an' J. reckon wc d  better humor hini.    What do you say?  "Oft goes the lid," sez Dick.  They bet around awhile longer until  nearlv all of Dick V money was in the  pot an' Jabez had a neat little pile oJ  checks  representin'  him.      Then  Dick  bet his balance an' called.     We all laid  down with a satisfied grin.     Jabez had  queens full' on Jacks, Piker  had  three  bullets an' a team  o' ten spots, Dick  had a royal straight flush, an' I had a  nervous chill.     Three aristocratic fulls  an' a royal straight!      Nobody spoke,  an' the money stayed where it was, m  the centre of the table.     Finally the ol'  man sez, makin' an effort to speak cordial.  "Well, I've  had enough  for  one  cvenin-', I guess I'll quit."  "Now, boys." sez Dick, in a low,  huskv voice, '"I." don't believe in  gambliir'. .'I only went into this to be  sociable, an' I want you all to take  vour nionov back."  " Wc sat an' looked at Dick with our  eves poppin' out, 'cause that wasn't  our wav  o'  playin'  the game  in   that  neighborhood. Suddenly the ol' man  whirled an' glared at Piker. "What  the hell do you mean by pressin my  toe?" he growls between his set teeth.  "This is the fourth time   you've done  it to-night."  (To be Continued)  INTERIOR ILLUMINATION FOR  MAN  The modern physician is not obliged  to guess atwhtit'is the matter, witl: a  mail's stomach or his bronchial tubes;  'if the proper instruments are at his disposal  look,  "I'm willin'." sez Jabcz, "an' if it  goes, why, I'll see your appreciation an  raise vou  f.vcjiundrcd."

Devices by which  the  interior cavities of the body could be  seen   were   invented,   if   not   actually  used, over a century ago, but none could  be   rcallv  successful   before  the   introduction "of  electric light. The forerunner of'the great recent improvements in  this   line' was.:Dcsoriiicaux''s   "endoscope, '' brought out in 1S55..    The namo  is   still .used",   and   the  employment  of  such instruments is known as "endos-  copv."    Wc translate below part of an  article contributed to La Nature (Paris,  August 5) by Dr. R-. JJurnior.   Says this  writer: .  "The instrumentation has been modified and perfected with years, but it is  always composed essentially of lighting apparatus, tubes of exploration, and  iiis'truinenfs of extraction.  "The luminous sources arc very powerful electric lamps, either fixed on the  operator's forehead by means of a wide  band,  or  contained  in   ine  instrument  itself   "The exploratory tubes are graduated tubes of nickeled copper, whose  caliber varies from one-third to one-half,  inch, according to the' subject's age,  and within which may be nestled elongated tubes until the objectionable body  i.s reached.  "'I nc instruments of extraction consist of hooks, of pincers at various angles, and of electro-magnets for attracting foreign bodies of metal.  "We shall touch very briefly on the  tnTroM^eCiWTFirilfrcx|iluratorj������������������t-ubes-in-  to the esophagus and trachea. Lxcept  with children, when general anesthesia  is necessary, local anesthesia with cocaine is suflieienf.' The subject may be  seated or prone. . . The introduction  of the tubes is effected in a few seconds when the operator is skilled and  thc subject accustomed to the operation.  "The   consequences   of   broncho-cso-  n.iii"Obc'i������������������|>v- have.been, of .great..imporl-  ance.     formerly   the  bronchi   and   the  esophagus were, so to speak, a hidden  territoi'V to us.      Tho diagnosis ot affect ions   of   the   trachea   and   the   esophagus   and    the   recognition   of   foreign bodies in these conduits were very  deceptive and depended only ou vague  notions.    Thus,  for foreign  bodies, the  principal basis of thc diagnosis was often tho patient's own story; and every  phvsicinn knows that in many cases foreign bodies arc unsuspected or even nu-  a'^nary.    Padiography  is  sometimes  a  rrrent help, but often it is powerless before  a  body   of   small   density  like  a  fruit stone.  "Today endoscopy gives us an oppor-  tunitv to see, not the shadoAV. but uic  thing itself;  it enables us to ascertain  the nature of this foreign body, whether  it   is  free  or  cncysler,  whether the  walls  of:  the  conduit  are wounded;   it  also  shows  us  pathological   alterations  of the esophagus, as well as  the  location and nature of tumors or ulcerations  of the Avails-of-the conduits.    Many intrathoracic   tumors  that   have  escaped  notice,   such   as   introthoracic   goiters  and ancurvsms of the aorta, have been  diagnosed'correctly by  tho endoscopic  method."  Owing to this extension of sight into  places formerly hidden from view, the  treatment of foreign bodies in the digestive and respiratory passages has  been greatly improved. A fow years  ago the physician iras usually in doubt  and often in despair. When certain  means of doubtful raUe had b������������������������������������n tried,  such as empties, holding the patient  head doAviiAvarcl, slapping his body, and  administering thick pastes intended to  carry the foreign, body down into the  stomach, the prudent physician ceased  his efforts. Some more daring ones introduced at random .instruments such  as hooks or "umbrellas," and made  vain and dangerous attempts that Avere  more apt to be fatal to the patient than  to bring up the foreign body. Moreover: :        ���������������������������  "Other surgeons, still more enterprising, proposed to reach the esophagus or  bronchial tubes by cutting through the  chest���������������������������an elegant operation doubtless,  but not of encouraging results, the  mortality being one hundred per cent.  "At present, thanks to "endoscopy in  the hands of a skilful operator, avo have  a rational, sure and safe method of  treatment. "When the endoscopic tube  has been pushed in as far as flic foreign body, it is easy to introduce an  electro-magnet, a pincers, or some instrument specially designed lo extract  foreign bodies. . . and to Avithdraw  the offending article under control of  tho sight, Avithout injuring the walls of  the conduit.  "The results obtained with esophag-  oscopy have uoav encouraged physicians  to push their investigations further and  to penetrate to the stomach or the  large intestine. 'Gastroscopy' and 'sigmoidoscopy'  have  been  created.  "The exploration of the stomacu is  made when the patient is fasting. Tbe  stomach having been Avashed and in-  dated. . . . the clear red coloration  and the folds of the mucous membrane  of the normal stomach can be seon, as  avcII as the opening and closing of the  pyloric, the valve that controls thc opening betAvcen the stomach and the duodenum. Finally, various pathologic lesions of the stomach, such as gastric ulcer or cancer, can be examined directly.  " The importance oi the information  li.at gastrocopy may furnish Avhen diagnosis is delicate may be imginod; thus  gstroscopic exploration is taking a finite  place among current methods of examination.  "So the discovery of Desormcaux,  modified and perfected, has enabled us  to raise the veil that has hitherto hidden from us the internal cavities of oiir  organs. Thanks to this new procedure,  avc can correct or affirm an otherwise  dillicult diagnosis and institute a rational treatment."  A BEAVER'S WORKING DAY  A young beaver in Regents Park Gardens, London, was once placed at'wqrk  upon a tree twelve feet long and tAvo  feet six inches thick, just as the town  clocks sounded the hour of noon.    The  beaver began by barking the tree a foot  above the ground;    -That done, he at,-'  tacked the Avood.     lie Avorkcd'hard, alternating   his   labor   Avith   dips   in   his-  bathing:pond.      lie bathed and labored  alternately   until   four  o.clock _in   the  afternoon,"Avlicn  he-ate his'.supper."bt!.-.'.  bread and carrots and'.paddled about in-"  his  pond  until- half-past. five ��������������������������� o'clock.  Ten'minutes later, Avhen only rone inch,,  of tho tree's diameter remained intact',  he bore upon his work and the'tree fell.-  .Before-it fell  the beaver ran  as  men  run when they have fired a blast.

Tho Avork done, ho took a  bath.

Not so long ago a patent was issued in  Germany i'or a new system of stationary, luminous aerial buoys of enormous  candle-poAvcr.  ^^T Hx^^aTlf=tif^bIe^^  with the earth. .Different colors are  proposed as signals indicating threatening storms, the direction of tho surface winds, and dangerous landing-  places.  The principal objection to this scheme  seems to lie in the cost of lighting a  wnolc air track, as the buoys, in order  to be effective, should not be placed too  far apart. Nevertheless, it seems that  .the system niay~bo-adopted-for a. stare,  by some large cities to equipping thoir  landing-places for airships.

How it was done is told by Mr.  i'ldward Bole, editor of The Ladies Home  Journal, who owns up at the end of the  story that the lawyer was his grandfather. He writes in his magazine that  the young man decided to make the island his home:  But it was a gruesome place. Barren  of tree or living green of any kind, it  was as if a man had been exiled to Siberia. Still, argued the young Mayor,  an ugly place is only ugly because it is  not beautiful. And beautiful, he determined, should this island be.  One day the j'oung ivi ayor-Judge called together his Council. "We must  have trees," he said; "we can make  this island a spot of beauty iC we will."  But the practical seafaring men demurred; the little money they had was  needed for matters far more urgent than  trees.  "Very we'll," was the Mayor's decision���������������������������and li'ttle they guessed what the  words were destined to mean���������������������������"I will  do it myself." And that spring he  planted one hundred trees; the first the  inland had ever seen. ��������������������������� t  "Too cold," said the islanders; "the  severe north winds and storms will kill  them all."  "Then I will plant more," said the  unperturbed Mayor. And for the fifty  years that he lived on the island he did  so. \ One hundred trees each year he  planted; and, ' meanwhile, he deeded  land to the island government, which he'  turned isto public squares.,and parks.  And there each spring,he planted thousands .of young shrubs and plants.  Moistened by the salt mist of the sea,  the trees did not wither but grew prodigiously. In all that expanse of turbulent sea���������������������������and only those who have  seen the North Sea in a storm ��������������������������� know  how turbulent it cah.be���������������������������there was not  a foot of ground for miles around on  which the birds of that clime, storm-  driven across the water-waste, - could  rest'in their flight. Thousands of dead  birds covered "the "surf ace of the sea. /  7 Then'one day the.'trees-had grown  large enough.-' to7 look facross the' sea',  'and,, spent. and-driven, the " first, birds  came' and' rested -in";their" leafy 'shelter.-  And others 'caine- and/f ound 'protection;  and theirVfgratitude'gave Jvent in song.  .Within a "few- years so many birds found  the trees in their new island'home that  "they attracted the attention not only of  the native islanders, ^but .also of the  people on the shore five miles distant,  and it was not long before the island  became famous as.the home jof the rarest and most beautiful birds.  * T-hcn the Koyal'yacht, with'the'King  and Queen on board/dropped anchor one  day and the Royal visitors came'to see  thc-island and the birds'of which they  had heard. .Forthwith went the fame'of  "The Island of Birds," as it became  known. And so grateful were the birds  for their resting place that they chose  one end of the island as a special spot  for the laying of their eggs and the raising of their young, and they fairly peopled it. It was not long before orni-  tluslogists from various parts of the  world came to "Eggland," as the island  point came to be known, to see the marvelous sight, not of thousands of bird  eggs, but literally of hundreds of thousands; some even carried the number of  eggs into thc million.  A pair of storm-driven 'niglJfingalfif  had now found the island and mated  there, and their wonderful notes thrilled even thc souls of the natives; and as  dusk fell upon the seabound strip of  laud the women and children would  conic to "thc square" and hear the.  evening notes of ihe birds of golden  song. The two nightingales soon grew  into u colony, and within a few years  so. rich was'the island ir its nightingales- that -it- once- moro ('hanged- its  name, and over to the 1: Atch coast  and throughout the land am over into  other countries spread the fame of  "Thc .Island of Nightingales."  Meanwhile the young lawyer had continued to plant his trees���������������������������a hundred a  year���������������������������and soon we road:  Artists began to hear of the place and  brought their canvases, and on the walls  of hundreds of homes throughout thc  world hang today bits of the beautiful  lanes and wooded spots of "The Island  of Nightingales." An American artist takes his pupils there almost annually, and "ln all the world today,"  hc says to his students, as they exclaim  at thc natural cool restful ness of the  island, "there is not a more beautiuil  place than this."  The trees are now majestic in their  height of forty and fifty feet; for it is  nearly a hundred years since the young  attorney went to the island and planted the "first tree, and tho churchyard  where ho lies is a bower of cool green,  with the trees that he planted dropping  their moisture on the linchcn-covcred  stone on his grave.  This much, says Mr. Bok, did one man  do.    "But he did more":  After he had been on thc barren island two years he went to the mainland  oue day and camo back bringing with  him a bride. It was a bleak place for  a bridal home, but the young wife had  the qualities of .the husband. "While  you raise your trees," sho said, "I will  raise our children." And within a score  of years the young bride sent thirteen  happy-faced, well-brought-up children  over that island, and there was reared a  home such as is given to few children.  "It was such a home," said one of the  men who subsequently married a daughter of that home, "that once you had  been in it you felt you must be of it,  and that if you couldn't marry one of  the daughters you would have been glad  to have married the cook."  One day, when the children had  grown to man's and woman's estate, the  mother called them all together and  said to them: "I want to toll you the  story of ypur father and this island";  and she told them the simple story that  is written here.  "And now," she said to them, "as  you go out into the world I want each  of you to take with you the spirit of  your father's work, and each in your  own way and place, to do as he has  done; mako you the world a bit more  beautiful or better because you have  been in it. That is your mother's  message to you."  ^ The second son left home for the  .Dutch mainland, where he entered a  small pulpit; and when he had finished  his work he was mourned by King and  peasant as one of the leading clergymen  of his time and people.  A third son, at the risk of his own  safety, plunged into the boiling surf on  one of those nights of terror so common  to that coast, rescued a half-dead sailor,  carried him to his father's hause, and  brought him back to a life of usefulness  that gave to the world that information of the dead cities of the past whieh  is today a record of imperishable value.  For the������������������half-drowned sailor was Hein-  rich Shliemann, who afterwards became  the famous explorer of the dead cities of  Troy.  The first son to leave the island home  went with a band of" hardy men and  journeyed to South Africa, where they  settled and became known as '.'The  Boers." Tirelessly they worked at the  colony until towns and cities sprang up  and a new nation came into being: The  Transvaal".Kepublic. " The son became  Secretary of State of the new country,  and today the United States of South  Africa bears tribute, v in part, to the  mother's message to'"make the world  a bit more beautiful or better."  MISTAKES OF SCIENTISTS  Sir Humphry Davy's dogmatic pronouncement against gas lighting is not  the only instance of a clever scientist  being hopelessly wrong. The early history of submarine cabling furnishes two  striking examples. Consulted on the  scientific side of the project, Faraday  asserted,that the first cables were made  too small. Then he said that "the  larger the wire, the more electricity  would bo required to charge it"; and  in this quite incorrect opinion hc was  ^supported by other eminent scientists.  As a result of this dictum the current  was increased until the operation "electrocuted" the wire, and the cable broke  down. It was Lord Kelvin who by  sending messages through heavy cables  with incredibly weak electric currents  proved that Faraday was mistaken.  Airy submitted the project to mathematics and arrived at the conclusion  that a cable could not be submerged  to the necessary, depth, and that if it  could, no recognizable signal could ever  travel from Ireland to Nova Scotia. In  aviation, the late Dr. Newcomb, one of  the most distinguished mathematicians  the world has ever produced, declared  that he had mathematically ���������������������������investigat-1  ed all the conditions operating against  the heavior-than-air machine, and was  convinced that the aeroplane would  never be any more than a scientific toy,  and the possibility' cf an aeroplane  motor being reliable in the reduced atmospheric pressure above 3,000 feet was  by several experts said to be out of the  question a few years ago.

"Tests also7  show that it will not pay to thresh many- thousands of, acres that_ have been cut,' and some threshing machines -  have flatly refused to thresh by the bushel, but "will only continue,by the .day. - Frost.early this season reduced;.1  the grade of wheat in many.,parts' of Saskatchewan and Alberta  down"to,-.No.  6 wheat and" feed"wheat,7and;  farmers that have No. 3 Northern" or better have every right to   consider   themselves   fortunate. *   Both' Sas-'\  katchewan and Alberta will produce a large , quantity of wheat grading No. 4 wheat or'lower.     Besides   this,'1-,  the damp weather is sure to reduce large quantities of the better qualities to off-grades.".    Conditions .are' the "  worst we have experienced for years.  -This means that there will be lots of low grade-wheat to'handle.this  season, but it does not follow that we will have-low ..prices..     Outside"' conditions guarantee-good-prices."-"-r We-"'  have  advocate*:! right  along that ..even without  damage to our crop we would not have low prices, "as .the de-~  niand for wheat all over the world will be enormous.   We predict.that to-day's quotations for our grain wilLlook7  cheap sometime between now, and next July.      The day for cheap wheat has gone by.      There are too"'many,-  people eating wheat, and the new countries that are opening up  are  not any  more than keeping pace   with ;  the increased consumption.     There may be a lot of wheat which will not be fit for grinding purposes such as .  poor feed.     Outside conditions, however, guarantee a good price for this quality of grain,   because   the   feed '  shortage in Europe is enormous, and already Germany is reducing the duty of feed stuffs to prevent the German  farmers from marketing their live stock,  which would be a menace to the welfare of that, country, and it is'  expected that the duty will be removed entirely at the next session of Parliament.   As one dealer puts it, and  =the=law-iipholds:=^Men=can=starveHiu1Mihe=^  that a good supply of feed stuffs must be purchased and stored, and Europe dare not disobey that signal.     As  the quantity of wheat grading No. 3 Northern, or better, has been reduced considerably by frost,  tliere will  likely be an unusually strong demand for these grades throughout the season.   It is claimed that the United  States mills intend grinding our 1 and 2 Northern wheat in bond.    They need it to mix with the softer varieties  of the Southern States.  ������������������  Today No. 3 Barley is worth 70c in store, Fort William. We ,do not look for any decline in these prices,  and vie expect our Nos. 3 and 4 Barley to advance 10c per bushel and be maintained. Oats arc worth 42y2c in  store, Fort William, and present indications point to oat values holding their own and probably advancing higher,  as considerable feed stuffs will be required iu the United States and Europe, in fact, far more than we can supply.  We have" been "getting""several" letters-from""farmers and they "all"expect to"secT'priccs declin"e_whcn re/  ceipts get heavy, but we cannot see it in that way. Of course, wo may have a temporary downward reaction,  but this is the time for farmers to hold their grain, and we suggest that farmers select a good, reliable* commission merchant, consign all their car-lot shipments of grain to him, and then rely upon his advice a.s to the  proper time to sell or hold. It will pay them well to do this. Wc do not think it advisable for farmers to hold  grain too long. Tho heavy storage charges in the terminal elevators eat heavily into the profits accrued  through any substantial advance in market prices, and when prices at the beginning of the season are fair,,  we advise selling. Of course, there are times when by holding anywhere from tea7 days to two mouths, the'  advancing market makes it a very profitable deal, bnt as to the advisability of holding for even this length  of time, wc think it best for farmers to depend upon the advice given by his commission agent.  We feel sure that the above information and advice is going to dispel the quandary which many farmers  are in as to the advisability of marketing their grain now or holding, and even if this should be all, we would  feel repaid for the expense of publishing this information. However, we know that farmers, even more than  other business men, recognize and appreciate a good turn, and will show their appreciation substantially when  the opportunity offers. We know that our old customers will still employ us to handle their grain consignments this season, as in other years, but we also know that there are many others who appreciate our  information and advice, and many of these will show their appreciation this season by forwarding us at least  one car-lot shipment to be handled on commission. Get better acquainted with us now by shipping forward  a car early.in the season, and we are perfectly satisfied that you will be so pleased and glad to let us have the  handling of the balance of your grain this season, and that future years will bring us all your grain shipments. We  know we can satisfy you and there is nothing else necessary to hold your custom. Wc UNDERSTAND this  grain business  THOROUGHLY and that COUNTS.  McBEAN BROS.  Address, 600 Grain Exchange, Winnipeg,, Manitoba  P.S.���������������������������If at all possible, don't thresh your grain until it is thoroughly dry. Have patience. It will pay  to wait/even for a considerable length of time. Good dry milling grades of, wheat will likely be drawing a  good premium this season, and it could easily happen that the drying facilities at Fort William and Port Arthur  would not prove equal to drying a very large quantity o.f damp and tough grain rushed forward. An over-sto<?k  might force shippers to sell out at sacrifice prices to prevent loss from heating.  *4   V f-        * -"TV*"! 1  yy'-'^zhi  "���������������������������fJiyj-.l'SOX4!  .---$,.*-r;_ yj.jJ?} I  >f������������������^,V������������������S"i%p  !*i   -   -,_.p-v--sr;.������������������l  T/^B  777-~-'s"-te|  7.

Gunther, SuperiutcuJeat  of Insurance, has Is-sued a hulk'Liu  from the Department of InsurmiCj,  Victoria, calling attention to Clriet-  mas Holiday hazards. The l_ullelin  comes at the right time and should  be given the attention it liesorveu:  '���������������������������Fires 'due to carelessness iu connection with the decoration of stores,  churches, schools and homes for thc  Christmas season are more numerous  than is generally imagined. O m-  plete statistics are not available,  but information collected shows that  such fires are numerous, costly from  a money standpoint, and attended  with much suffering and deplorable  loss of life. It is estimated that  last year there were 500 such fires in  the United States.  It cannot be too often insisted thet  the majority of fires are preventable.  Decorations are dangerous. There  should be no carelessness.  Instances of carelessness.���������������������������It is  careless to tamper with electric wiring to produce or facilitate displays.  To use cotton batting in a show-  window and on or under a Christmas  tree to represent snow.  To allow the inexperienced and  thoughtless to do the decorating.  To hang vinflannnable material  where it touches or may be pushed or  blown against stove-pipes, steam-  pipes, lamps, gas or electric lights.  To use celluloid ornaments in decorating.  To allow children to light candles  on a tree.  To leave matches where children can  get/them for the purpose.  To allow children to touch an illuminated tree."  To leave an illuminated' tree un-  watched  To allow paper and rubbish to accumulate in the -premises and about  the furnace, owing to. pressure of.  business., -'    '  , Here are a- few of last.year's Xmas  fires: -. Boy's costume, trimmed -with  cotton batting, caught fire from candle. ��������������������������� Boy and a " visitor slightly  burned. . " .. ,,_ ,. ' . '. ���������������������������__.  _A scholar-was- fatally" burned,, due  to her' clothes catching -fire' from can-*  -die -on -school   Christmas'tree.-';An':  other scholar fatally burned from  same cause at another school.  Fire was caused by a toy motion-  picture machine. The film, while being exhibited, flapped over on to top  of lamp and ignited.  Children ignited cotton decorations  used to represent snow around Christmas tree. Fire spread throughout  first floor. Members of family seriously burned.  Children in lighting candles on  Christmas tree set fire to decorations.  Cat upset Christmas tree. Damage $100.  Gas-jet set fire to Christmas decorations.  A lighted candle ignited decorations in show windows, of hardware  store.  Fire spread rapidly, due to holly,  mistletoe and smilax decorations.  Store profusely decorated with evergreen boughs and festoons ignited  from defective electric wiring. Fire  spread- rapidly and burned fiercely.  Loss,  $212,154.  Mr.~ Gunther closes his bulletin with  these words: "The instances quoted  all suggest what should be avoided.  If read with the word "Don't" before them, they become rules. "Don't  tamper with electric wiring.' Smoking should not be allowed where there  are inflammable decorations. Inflammable means "apt to take fife.'  Asbestos fibre will represent snow.  Metallic tinsel is better than paper.  Let there be no Christmas horrors in  British" Columbia."

Catarrhozone, Which Cures Every
Curable Case
Thos. Griffin, of Peace River Landing,
������  Tells How He Got Rid of His Rheumatism���������Honestly Earned Popularity
Catarrhozone proves especially good
in those chronic cases where mucus
drops down the throat, sickens the
stomach, and pollutes the breath.
When the nostrils arc stuffed, only a
few breaths through the inhaler are
needed to clear the passages, and where
there is coughing and sore bronchial
tubes the soothing, healing properties
of Catarrhozone act almost as magic.
Once you stop taking medicine into
the stomach and get the hoaling oils
and pure balsams of Catarrhozone at
work you cau be sure of quick and
lasting" cure for nose colds, catarrh,
weak������lungs, bronchitis, and speaker's
sore throat.
"As Catarrhozone has cured me of a
Catarrhal Cough ancl Asthma that lasted thirteen years, I feel I can koncstly
recommend it. I really used all kinds
of medicine, hut Catarrhozone was the
only one that did any real good. I am
entirely cured���������have no cough, no bad
breathing spells, not a sign of a cold or
catarrh about me. But I will always
occasionally use ' Catarrhozone,' I prize
it so highly.

his trainer and owner started to further

Ewen MacDonald, whose name  isn't really MacDonald at all, but Dolly,  has just finished tlie compilation, composition, and printing of a Gaelic dictionary, which "neat little job," says  G. A. Munn, tho London correspondent  of the' Denver Republican, took him  simo "sweet sixteen years���������������������������or more."  iMunn couldn't help comparing Dwelly  and Johnson himself, for he says:  Johnson only compiled the dictionary  and in that ho had help,'but MacDon-  c e p t ivoly I aid not only compiled his "word book,"  ' " l ������������������ ,���������������������������?l!ls tl,c i>il������������������ translated reads, but set thc  type himsolf, cast thc stertotype plates,  and printed and bound tho book.

Imagine  my surprise when I called the other-day  on the new lexicographer at his home  at'JIerne Bay near London and learned  that he isn't a Scot at all, if birth  makes nationality, and that the Gaelic  is not his native tongue. Yet so thor-'  oughly has hc soaked in the Gaelic  that now he speaks English with dif-  ficult}r. And his name isn't MacDonald  either. Ut is Dwelly and the Dwellys  have been settled in Somerset in the  southwest of England since 1150. Thc  first recorded connection of the family  with Scotland was when MacDonald's  great grandfather enlisted in the Gold-  stream   Guards. ,  Perhaps it is from his great-grandfather that MacDonald inherited his  love of the bagpipe, for from boyhood  he considered the skirl of the pipes the  only music worth hearing and his boyish ambition was to become a pipe major. Iiis father had other ideas, however, .and when he was seventeen he  got his son a job in a London bank.  Young Dwelly's first act when he  came to work in London'was to join the  London Scottish, a volunteer regiment  made up of exiled" Scots', and there he  learned to play the pipes. Ten years of  tho bank was all he could staud and he  resigned his'post, went to Scotland, ancl  enlisted in the-Fifth 'Argyll Highlanders. \ , Then hc began to learn Gaelic and  he, married-a Gaelic-speaking wife and,  most important"'of all, he met-old Ronald Mackenzie,-who is now private piper  of thc"Duke-bf Buccleueh: .-To him lie  confided his"ambition7to_b<."acj.ipe major.,, ���������������������������' 7-v;- .      ���������������������������    ; r   '"-;���������������������������.'.

Dwelty became MacDonald there aud  .then and before long he was pipe major  of thc First Ross.    ,     "     '  But his life-work soon claimed him,  we read, and MacDonald quit,the army  to commence his "war on words"���������������������������the  dictionary. Further:  The book contains 2,000,000 words,  20,000 of which MacDonald declares  never have been printed before.  "For instance,", he says, '"there are  sixteen separate words to describe the  various marks on sheep's ears. --The  words descriptive" of boats and tackle  fill seven pages. Many of the words  have two or three different forms.

MacDonald's reward for the work of  a lifetime would not attract a trust  magnate. lie has secured "as many  as" GOO subscribers, and is selling the  book to them at $10 each.  Now, wc arc told, MacDonald is  promising himself a holiday. He is  going to devote himself to genealogical  work, in which field, he sajs, he is'  i-ei'lly interested.  That is the question which Magistrate  Macguire, of Brooklyn, was recently  called upon to settle, because the mother of thc daughter who had been ship-  pod sued her husband in court to test  his alleged rights to slap his daughter.  The case reminds ono of thc father-  in-law who, a short time ago in one ot  the Midland towns, brought an action  against his daughter's husband to recover expenses in'curred during the  courtship, in the way of lighting and  entertainment, thc father-in-law asserting that there had been a private arrangement between himself and the  young man that tho latter should bear  such expenses. Aud then there was  the lady who sued her daughter's young  man for $2 expended in gingerbocr and  cake during his visits, and the old lady  who asked a London magistrate if she  could not proceed against her son-in-  law for damages for falsely representing himself to be a person of some  means, marrying her daughter,'and afterwards living on money he forced her  to give him.  - -Some of the grounds on which breach  of promise cases are brought forward  are equally amusing. One young man,  for instance, 'who had the pluck to  bring a breach of promise case against  a young woman who had jilted him,  wished to contend that by breaking off  the engagement, which had lasted some  time and was known to a large number  of people, his late sweetheart had seriously damaged his reputation. His argument was that the blame for the rupture would fall on him, being the man.  Another woeful wooer wished to recover damages for the loss of a certain  social position which he said he would  have obtained had his lady-love not  jilted him; but alas! the law supported  the lady and the young man was still  left bemoaning his luck.  Turning from these troubles in Hymen's realms, one might mention,  among other laughable trials,-that of  the Washington parrot, who was arrested on a charge'of profanity four years  ago. The complainants were neighbors  of the'owner of the parrot, and it* was  stated in evidence that the bird was  such a depraved character .that it was  teaching the children in the neighborhood to swear. It was further said  that thc parrot on Sundays sang popular songs as people were passing to  church, and when the policeman started  to give evidence "Polly"1 gave" an ex-'  ample-of its slanging capabilities' by  shouting "Shut up,-Nosey!" .' Ultimately a compromise was' arrived .at  and -the -parrot rcmoyed^f or^ lessons Jn_  good "behavior.7"7T" ' "'[" " '.'"'���������������������������'-Z "''  " 'Perhaps "one" of-the-most cxtraordin:  ary' cases, on" record "was" that' of a  Japanese member of-parliament .who'in  1903 was. sentenced' to" fifteen 'days \ im7  prisonment" and ordered to\ pay a'fine  of $2.50 for! yawning -in 'parliament.'

The magistrate took his seat and  rapped for order. Then he called:  "Prank Courtright, stand up!"  Tho magistrate stood up. ' Then hc  solemnly .tried himself for being drunk  and disorderly, and fined himself. .i>20  for it.

Another  picture robbery, which in its time created a tremendous sensation, was the  theft of the Murillo from the cathedral  at Seville. It turned up in New York  some time after, and was bought for  $250 and returned to the Spanish authorities by Mr. William Schaus, who  refused to touch a cent of the $10',000  reward that had been offered.  A miniature by PJimer was unscrewed  from the walls of the National Portrait  Gallery in broad daylight, and has never  been heard of; while in July, 1905, a  Franz .Hals, valued at $50,000, was  stolen from tho Antwerp Museum, and  has not yet been recovered.  In 1907 Van Dyck's "Raising of the  Cross," estimated to be worth from  $100,000 to $200,000, was stolen from its  frame in Courtrai Church, iu Belgium.  It was unexpectedly recovered six  weeks after, however. Then there was  Millet's "Shepherd and Flock," valued at $10,000, wliich was cut from its  frame in a museum at Sau Francisco  some fifteen months ago by a young ar  tist, who, on arrest, said than "hc only  wanted to copy it." Sidney Cooper's  "Monarch of the Meadows" was stolen  from a house some years ago by decorators, one of whom, by writing offering  to restore the picture for $2,500 to its  owner, enabled the police to track the  thieves.

SOME LAUGHABLE LAWSUITS  If a father suddenly finds the lights  lowered in the room in which a young  lovor and his daughter are seated, is  he justified in turning the young man  out of doors and ending all discussion  by slapping the daughter?  FAMOUS STOLEN PICTURES  The recent theft of what Parisians  consider to be the world's most famous  picture���������������������������Vinci's masterpiece, "La Bio-  conda," from the Louvre���������������������������naturally recalls the theft of Gainsborough's  "J3uchcss_of _Dovonshirc,"-and- its-rot  niantic recovery twenty-live years later.  Messrs. Agnew had bought the picture  for 10,000 guineas in 1S7G. and it had  not been exhibited more than a week in  their Bond Street galleries when the  attendant, entering the room one morning, found that the picurc was gone. It  had been cut out of its frame and car  ricd away.  [Rewards were offered and every effort  made to trace thc thief, but without sue  cess; and it was not until 3901 that information was received by Messrs. Agnew that the "stolen Duchess" was in  America, and would be handed over for  $15,000 provided "no questions were  asked." One of the partners in the  firm went over to America, and after  arrangements had been made returned  with the picture, which it was 'thought  had long since been destroyed.  Another priceless oil-painting by  Gainsborough was stolen by burglars  from a house in Kcnsignton in Novcm-  *-%*j^ fc*~, *virj_ 1  &,**��������������������������� ������������������*>>&*" I  zT^Z-^'^M  -*-T.   ���������������������������t^.-it ?%���������������������������*������������������  ������������������������������������������������������-v;~  .1v '  Self-LoadintShotg uxi7  ^- 1'12-'GAUGEi/MQ"bEL^  This new .Winchester. hasJ all thei .gob'd points,'  of other recoil operated shotguns- and many distinct- J-  ive features and improvements besides. ; Among them are::  Nickel steel construction, which gives surpassing strength and_  safety; and a reloading system. that will  handle all safe loads without readjustment. -.

' __--������������������,  THE   ENDERBY   FAIR  Opposite The Walker Press.  Dr. H. Medd was slated by thc  Department of Agriculture to be with  Mr. Buss, and to give a lecture on  thc horse, but the 'doctor failed to  show up, much to thc disappointment  of many.  Mr. Hoy, fruit inspector stationed  at Vernon, - consented to take Dr.  Medd's place, but speaking on the  cultivation of fruit lands. Questioned as to what is locally known  as "brown rot," Mr. Hoy gave some  interesting information. He said thc  prevalence of brown rot was general  this year. He had seen boxes of apples that were perfect when packed  from the trees opened and repacked  with a loss .of fully fifty or 75 per  cent. The Department "recognized the  seriousness of the situation, but with  all their research they nad been unable to gather any knowledge as to  the cause of the trouble or its remedy. A paper recently issued by Mr.  Winslow, Provincial Horticulturist,  bears directly'upon this question, and  gives the information reiterated by  Mr. Hoy.  "This disease has been reported to  the Department from practically  every apple-growing section of the  Province this year," says Mr. Winslow. "Not0 only is the Interior affected, but the Coast as well, while  probably the greatest losses are reported from the most prominent  fruit sections. * * * During the  season of 1909 a similar outbreak occurred, though not to as great an extent as this year. * * * The disease goes under a confusing variety  of names. The principal ones commonly given by fruit growers are:  Baldwin Spot, Fruit Spot, Dry Rot,  Bitter sRot, Brown Rot,: Physiological Dry Rot and Frut Pit. In Germany, the common name is Stippen,  or Stippich-werden;- and Bitter Pit in  South Africa" . .-. No scientific name  has been given, because no specific  cause has yet been discovered.  "This disease has been known and  been under investigation for thirty  years, - principally in Germany, and  during the last ten years especially,  in the United States and Cane.ia.  We have consulted "all the available  authorities in Canada and the United  States on the subject. They are  agreed that it is not caused by any  fungous, bacterium or insect. The  organism causing it is absolutely unknown. ' Spraying experiments have  proven absolutely valueless. Scientists are now thoroughly agreed in  designating it as a physiological  trouble in the same class as Water  Core.  .-'.il- have��������������������������� been__instructed__ _by___th_e  CHRISTMAS  GREETINGS  TO EACH AND ALL  We thank you for the liberal  patronage of the past year, and  wish you a Merry Christmas  and a Happy, Prosperous New  Year.
