The cup is to be won each year, the  winning   team   having   the honor of  being named thereon.      It will probably be played for for many years to  come, and is a. trophy well-worthy of  the long life it   will have.   The first  j names to   appear    on   it are: A. D.  | Birrell,    J.

Mr. Basil Gardom was a witness in  the Dake case at the Vernon assizes.  After finishing court work, Mr. Gardom proceeded south in quest of a  5000-acre piece of land on the route  of the railway building into Penticton, near Keremeos.  Rev. Mr. Mclntyre presided at the  Anniversary services at Knob Hill  last Sunday. The services were well  attended, and a most profitable day  spent by the congregation and friends  especially the morning exercises, on  which occasion the church was crowd-  =(fd"t"d"tlve"du_i-sr  j will be an honor to Enderby. '  I    The matter of   cost was gone into  closely, and the revenues, based upon  what   sister   towns   have done, were  calculated   most   conservatively, ancl  1 it was shown that it would be a self-  I sustaining proposition, and one that  i would more than pay the interest on  the investment   and   provide for the  sinking   fund.        It     was   therefore  deemed advisable to place the matter  ���������������������������before the City   Council and ask the  I City to   put:  before   the   ratepayers  .the question   of    the city borrowing  j the sum sufficient to erect a building  chasers at the sale.

Almost all the candies  were disposed of, and the sum of $25  cleared during the four hours the sale  was in progress.  It was   reported   that   Mr.  dence adduced at the trial was much  the same as that brought-out at the  preliminary hearing held before Magistrate Rosoman when Dake and  Belmont we're held for trial.  Mr. H. A. McLean handled the case  for the Crown, and Mr. A. D. Mac-  Intyre appeared for Dake. The case  occupied the docket all day Friday  and Saturday, , and went to, the jury  at 11:30 Saturday night. The jury,  were out three hours or more, and  the foreman then reported to Hon.  Mr. Justice Gregory that a verdict  was impossible, and they were,discharged.  j    Mr. V. C    Brimacombe,    teller   of  Poison I ^e. Dank of Montreal,   was' the first  i had offered to deed to a company, if ,���������������������������  organized, half.an acre of land on his !  [tract purchased some time ago from j  P. Greyell. The liberality of this i  offer was appreciated, but it was re- j  alized that such a move would have a  tendency to divide the place of recreation, and it   was believed to be a  witness called. He produced the  loose-leaf ledger sheet showing Dake's  account at that time. The account  opened in December, 1908. From then  and until July, 1909, some .$2,200 had  been deposited in twelve or thirteen  separate, amounts, and in the same.  time the accused had met some 12 or  At the meeting of the City Council  on July 13th,   Aid.

Mr.  Taylor is convinced that there is a  great future in store for the southern  interior when the railways now building are pushed to completion.  A Scotch inventor has perfected a  sled-like machine which when drawn  over a road, accurately records on a  paper-covered cylinder all irregularities in the road's surface. What do  you suppose would be the result if  the machine were drawn up Cliff and  some of   thc   other   streets in town?  Harry Amos, a resident of Enderby  some years ago, passed through on  his way to Nelson, on Monday, accompanied by Mrs. Amos. Since  going to Nelson some years ago in  the employ of the Bell Trading Co.,  Mr. Amos has entered business by  himself and is   meeting with success.  Mr. H. W. Wright is spending the  week in Enderby, settling up some  business, ancl enjoying a visit with  his many friends in the little old  town of his birth���������������������������as "Baldy." Mr.  Wright is now living retired at Vancouver, He can boast of the swellerit  little den in the cozy corner of his  sumptuous residence, with all tbe  luxuries that go with it, but, tucked  away in the cozy corner of his heart  ���������������������������and it's a big one���������������������������he has a warm  spot for Enderby that won't stop its  burning.

As a result of this decision, the  matter was placed in the form of a  petition to the City Council,- and the  posed the   place   was   set on fire by  someone and the   goods stolen.   His.-  connection with Belmont had terminated, he said, toward the end of June  Mr.    McLean   for   the Crown,  put  the accused through a most searching  cross-examination.    His reply to the  questions     bearing'  on   his   conduct ^  after the fire   and   up to the time of  his arrest, was that he was too much ',  engaged   in    his   room   at the hotel  looking over his invoices and trying.  to straighten things out.'  Wheni it   was   found necessary for  His Lordship to   discharge the jury,-  he ordered   Dake   to    be retained in  _  custody.    On Monday he allowed the  accused out on bail, himself in $2,000  and two sureties of $1,000 each.

It will be remembered that the Council called for  tenders   for   this   work and   let   the  contract   for   this   work,   then at a j same has   been    circulated   and   will  come before   the Council at its next  later meeting, after the right of way  had   been   given,  tfa. tTin<r_ ailed-  work.   Aid.    Blanchard's   request  at  tbe meeting   of    July   13th,   was to  meeting. The_ Pgtitioners_urge__ upon  cancelled the con-  to go on with the -j t_ie~Council the necessity of the city  erecting a suitable skating rink on  the Recreation Ground "in order to  hold that ground as the 'centre of  recreation, as was originally intended  when the ground was purchased" and  make good the promise made to the  property owners. The Council at  that time offered as an excuse for not  then proceeding   with   the work that j the petition goes on to state that a  it could be done much cheaper "after  the fall rains." If we are not mistaken,-the-fall rains have come, and  the weather is ideal for road making.  Will the Council make good ?  PROGRESSIVE ROAD POLICY  The Provincial Government's trunk  road policy, seems to be only second  in importance to its railway policy,  and promises to bc a mighty 'factor  in the opening up of the province. The  Minister of Public Works, the Hon.  Mr. Taylor, has been hard at work  perfecting plans looking to the carrying out of this policy. Not only will  transprovincial roads be constructed  so as to make continuous highways  from thc coast to Alberta, but the  Government will also build a north  to south transprovincial road, which  will be a continuation of the old  Cariboo trail, following the east  bank of the Fraser river to a point  opposite Fort George, thence by tlie  Ne'chaco Valley to the divide separating the Nechaco Valley from the  Bulkley Valley as far as Hazelton, in  all, a distance of 500 or 600 miles.  In the two roads, the Government  will build 1000 miles of road.  rink for the holding of winter sports  has become essential to the growth  and advancement of'Enderby. Therefore "we ask you to consider the  matter at the earliest possible date  and if deemed advisable by you, we  petition you to place before the property owners a by-law for the purpose  of raising a loan in the sum found  necessary for the erection of a suitable building, that could be used for  agricultural show purposes as well."

The-Summerland band  .vas in attendance, and  the    Summerland    Apple   Show   was  at its    best���������������������������and   a   magnificent display it was.   After viewing the apples  Sir Thomas was   driven through the  Summerland     orchards,      and     was  greatly pleased with the progress being made.

He, witness, had cashed  the check for him and that closed the  account. Dake's reputation was good  and had he asked and needed accommodation at the' bank at any time  (which hc did not need) he could have  had it as well as anyone else.  Thc testimony of Mr. Hutchison,  Mr. Harold Taylor, Mr. Wright, Mr.  Bailey, Mr. Holtby Mr. Inch, Mr.  Gardom, Mr. Whiten, Vernon, told of  the fire, its character, ancl the subsequent searching of the ruins, ancl the  arrest of Belmont and Dake. It was  a repetition of the evidence taken at  tlie preliminary, all of which is well  known to Enderby readers.  A guard of the jail at Kamloops,  told of Belmont's escape on the 2nd  of October. He gave as the cause of  his escape the making of a key out  of a spoon.  The deposition of Frank Belmont  was then taken, in which he turned  King's evidence, ancl with this tho  Crown's case rested.  Dr. K. .0. McDonald was called and  gave evidence as to Dake's character,  after which the accused himself was  put into the box. He told of his  life up to his coming to Enderby. He  stated he had not spoken tq Belmont  at all re insurance, and, questioned  as to the fire, said he was entirely  unable to account for same.   He sup-  founder of Summerland and district.  The party left for the Landing at 1  o'clock, making only one other stop  in the Valley and that at Vernon,  returning in the evening to the mainland and proceeding to Montreal.  GOING FOR CAPITAL  Mr. J. M. Robinson leaves Summerland this week on a visit to the  Old Country. He is proceeding there  not entirely on a pleasure trip. It is  hinted tliat Mr. Robinson will make  an effort to interest English capital  in a scheme to build an electric railway to connect the towns on the  east shore of Okanagan lake between  Naramata and Vernon. These towns  ���������������������������including Kelowna���������������������������will not be  touched by the Kettle River Valley  railway, now building, and the only  connections with Vernon arc by boat  and stage line. Mr. Robinson has  been very successful in the past in  floating any project he has taken up,  ancl if this report is true, we may  expect to see him come back with  the necessary capital.  CONCERT FRIDAY NIGHT  To-morrow night in K. of P. hall  the^adies of the. Methodist Aid will  give a concert, the program being  furnished by local talent. They arc  promising a very happy evening to  all who attend.

Around the walls,, on the tables and  chairs, were the oid folks of Morag,  all looking on with reminiscent; smiles  and fondness for their sons and daughters.

'Ben Larkin led  Grizel to a seat, and the coast-gun rd  treated ('.'apt a in Grant to a playful  poke in the ribs as the young couple  began what was apparently a very personal conversation.  Rmtiggle-erio seemed to pay no attention, but busied himself about the floor,  arranging the next dance; which was  that half-savage Highland romp���������������������������the  fichottischo. As it is properly danced  in Scotland, the partners face each  other, hands on hips, dance a few stops,  and trip off to thc left, a few more  steps and run to the right, then with  a "Hooch!" they fling themselves into  each   other's  arms   and   swing  around  up,  with such momentum-that the lady ������������������������������������������������������invariably  loses her footing.

Scrymegeour,  in order to whisper, was standing almost on tiptoe to reach the giant's ear,  and thc miser's ratlikc face was .Muck  forward in an insinuating manner.  Larkin saw Grant suddenly turn upon  his heel, say something decisive over  his shoulder, and walk out of the hall.  He  did  not  come  back.

The nut'brown lass, it may as well be  said truthfully, had not enjoyed her  evening as much as the old coast-guard  supposed. She had danced with the  handsome young officer to the exclusion  ol: nearly everyone except the Laird.  Even that social triumph had not. taken1  from her heart a bitterness which had  suddenly sprung up with,,'regard to  &atiggi.(LCJdcL__;_ilL-_J._I!._ _.������������������. x I_!������������������t ect Ui a t  she would have humbled her dared evil  lover to the dust. Iii her heart shc had  decided that, before the night wjis over,  she would have granted Smuggle-erie  tho forgiveness for his former'churlishness which she had fully expected he  would have asked.  Smugglo-erie, however, had apparently'played her at hor'own game. 'What  it had cost him she had no means of  knowing.' All she did know'-was that  ho had loft her, unprotested, in the  hands'of his rival, and,1 had seemingly  enjoyed himself in every dance, with  every other lass, j'.efore that night she  had never stopped to consider which of  tiie two lovers she preferred. Now she  know that she preferred one of them���������������������������  but. which?  A woman's heart, under such circumstances, is often-as much a mystery to  herself as it is to hor admirers.

WHAT TO DO WITH ABDUL'S -.100  WIVES  HEN the deposed Sultan Abdul  llamid wen. into forced retirement at Salonica with twelve-  wives iind a retinue of servants only  a very small part ot his establishment  went wilh him. The government vaguely recognized.the residue as a liability  for which provision must be made. That  obligation has iioav been startingly recalled by a claim just sent to parliament for $920,000 for "wages due" to  7'JG persons.  This demand has aroused the legislators to the necessity for action. No  particular inquiry had ever been made  as to thc extent of thc ex-Sultan's entourage. There had been an exodus of  women, supposedly breaking up the  harem, ancl the household left was .assumed fo comprise about 200 persons,  none of them expensive. The number  who have come forward for pay is ns  astonishing as the amount of: money  they call for. It appears that these 7il*  comprise some iOO young women, thc  rest being men slaves ancl servants. The  list seems to bc authentic.  Confronted with the necessity of doing something, parliament has taken  the matter up. Tt has decided to separate the women from tho others and pension them at from .10 to $250 a year,  according to a'scheme of precedence to  be worked out. .Pensions will bc paid  for ten years and then cease. The others  must begin to look out for themselves  at once. No action has been taken on  the $920,000 claim.  The debates developed a great variety of views. Many members expressed  the opinion that these seven hundred  and odd people should forthwith be  turned out to earn their own living.  The answer was that self-respecting employers would not. give the girls anything to do.  .'It. w;is suggested by some that they  ought to bc married oil'. Others thought  that idea good, but no onc would undertake to provide husbands.  One member made a strong speech in  favor of shipping the 400 back to Albania and Arabia, where Abdul Ha mid  got them, his preference having always  been for the beauties of" these lands.  This scheme sounded plausible, aud  might have prevailed had not the report  of it that was sent out instant.lv provoked vigorous protest from the authorities of those, two countries, with stern  notice that the women would not be permitted to return. When the women left  their native places they did so to the  great financial gain of their families,  and even they were unwilling fo have  them back.  Tho case is morc serious than, it may  appear offhand. These inmates of the  Yildiz Kiosk estranged themselves from  all other contact when they became the  property of the Sultan. He could protect them while in power, but when he  fell they wore left not only defenceless  but their record bars them from outside  association.

THE    STRANGE    CASE    OF    LORD  KITCHENER  (From M. A. P.)  WHATEVER Mr. Halftone may say,  it is surely amazing that, of all  great, men   in   the British  Empire, Lord Kitchener should find himself  out of a job.  True, ho is now sixty���������������������������Napoleon and  Wellington were only forty-six when  they   met   at   Waterloo���������������������������but,  iu   these  days of peace, sixty is not old for a  general.  At King Edward's funeral, thc tall,  soldierly figure of Lord Kitchener, with  his square, swarthy countenance, attracted more notice than the eight mon-  arehs themselves who visited our Sovereign. Is it really true that Lord Kitchener, in his search for a job, has  considered aii offer to organize the Chinese army? The very idea adds terror  to "the Yellow Peril���������������������������a population of  four hundred millions, f ocusscd for war  by such an intellect!  Curiously enough, General Gordon,  who was "avenged" by Lord Kitchener  at Khartoum,-made his name in China,  where he suppressed the terrible Taeping rebellion. Like Lord Kitchener,  ho served his apprenticeship, surveying  lhe Holy Land.  ll'OAv did the present position come  about.' Wheu Lord Kitchener left India, two posts were open. .There".was  the "Vice-royalty of India, and there  was the Mediterranean command at  Malta.' India or Malta?���������������������������what a  choice! It reminds one of Napoleon���������������������������  Europe or Elba? Lord Kitchener was  not offered India, and ho declined Malta, whence followed the "impasse."  Let us be fair. To promote the Commander-in-Chief of the Indian Army to  thc post of Viceroy would havc been  unusual, and would have suggested a  military dictatorship. Nothing could  have been more abhorrent to the peaceful soul of Lord Morley. Besides, Lord  Kitchener was unmarried���������������������������a substantial disability.  Still, how could Lord Kitchener be  happy at Malia? Think how the Mediterranean Command originated. .It is  a long'but very instructive story.  In 1805, Sir Henry Campbell-"Banner-  man boldly retired tho Puke ol: Cambridge from tho post of Commander-in-  Chief. There were two reasons: Eirst,  his age; and, secondly, his Royal status,  which made administration very dilli-  cult.  A few years later the post of Coin-  inandcr-in-Chief���������������������������just the post for Lord  Kitchener���������������������������was itself abolished, instead, we have now the .Inspector-General, whose business it is to sec that  thc Army is complete to the last button. The first inspector-General was  the .Duke of Counaught.  Sec what followed. The Duke is, by  universal consent, a good soldier, thoroughly keen on his work. But then  he sulfcrs., jusfc as the Duke ot Cambridge suffered, from his Royal status.  An Under-Secretary cannot deal .with  the brother of the-Sovereign as if be  were an ordinary officer. Another opening had to be found i'or the Duke of  Connaughi.  Thc Mediterranean Command was  quickly evolved from Mr. Haldano's  fertile brain. The Duke set forth, played iit soldiers for a few months, watched the boats sailing by, grew tired of  interfering in other men's duties, resigned, and was created Governor-General of Canada!  Wheu Alalta. thus rendered .vacant,  was pressed upon Lord Kitchener, all  sorts of inducements were added. Jle  should have the right to inspect all  the Imperial forces in the King's Dominions beyond the Seas; he should  carry out Mr. Haldano's idea of one  standard of accoutrement in thc Colonies, so that all the scattered forces of  the Empire might work with the Home  Army in time "of war; he should have  a sc'at upon the Defence Committee.  No; Lord Kitchener would have none  of it. He threw up the Mediterranean  Command, and thc Government did not  further extend the invitation to thc  Defence Committee.  Again, let us bo fair. Thc whole of  Lord Kitchener's wonderful career has  been spent in the East. Lt is not quite  easy to sec what appointment at home  he would have accepted. There is the  Command in Ireland; but would not  J'jord Kitchener have resented .such a  suggestion? Besides, General .Lyttcltou  hn'..-hp.Rn-biirelv..a-V.oar_in,,.th__c_saddle^  Then take the Inspector-CiciieralslTipr  "How could Lord Kitchener succeed Sir  John  Erench,  his  subordinate?  Of course, the great outcry has arisen  because ��������������������������� Lord Kitchener has no seat  upon the Defence Committee. The matter lies exclusively with tho Prime Minister, which was Mr. Balfour's arrangement when he founded the Committee  in 1905. -:-;-:    "'        - :- ..:,:...

Afterwards���������������������������mystery!' The world  only know that Lord Kitchener soon  came to loggerheads with Lord Gurzon,  then Viceroy,-and that it was Lord  Cur/on who resigned. Then there was  :t shadowy scheme for re-organizing the  Indian forces���������������������������two regiments of Ghur-  kas were enrolled���������������������������transport was decentralized���������������������������native mountain- batteries  were developed; but what did it mean*  The very experts arc dumb.  Finally came that astonishing story  of a kind of promise made to Lord  Kitchener, that, if hc left India, he had  best take a return ticket, since he would  go back in another capacity���������������������������to wit,  as Viceroy. Exalted names���������������������������very exalted names���������������������������are associated with this  report.  Of course, if a war were to break out,  Lord Kitchener would at once take command, and no such command would have  been possible had hc taken the post of  Viceroy of India. Otherwise, there are  those who think that ho might become  Secretary of Stato for War in the next  Conservative  Cabinet.  Such an appointment would bc "political'"���������������������������that is, it would involve policy  in thc widest sense. Lord Roberts is an  apostle of compulsory military service.  Some pcople hint that Lord Kitchener  agrees with him. But would Mr. Balfour adopt so tremendous a proposal?  Thcso are some of the unplumbed depths  in thc strange case of our unemployed  Field-Marshal,  BIG GAME OF BRITISH SEAS.  IP the California coast there hvr  gigantic sea bass running up to  .four hundred pound-! in weight;  in the Gulf of Mexico that giant herring,  the silver-scaled tarpon, is found up lo  seven feet long and affords the" most  magnificent sport conceivable,������������������������������������������������������ Off Aden  anglers catch a sort of cod which fro  queutiy pulls the-scale at a couple of  hundred weight.  We have no such gigantic game as this  off British coasts. The average" sea  angler is content'with a few dozen whiting or codling or a score of mackerel  taken by "whiffing" with a hand line.  It* he is ambitious he goes out at night  long lining for conger eels, and may,  secure a few en: those writhing, slimy  sea snakes up to fifty or sixty pounds  in weight.  Vet lhc rn is be tier sport than this for  those who havo the time and energy to  pursue it. Off our rocky southern coast.:,  especially from .Plymouth Sound to  Land's l.nd, nre found pollack. Close  to tho shore you may catch them up to  a pound or two in weight, but a milo out,  in six or eight I'alnoius of wafer, far  larger fish swim.  Sand eels, mussels, or a pilchard cut  in half, form the best baits for thcso big  fellows, and using a six-toot sea-rod.  aud a reel with plenty of strong line,  great sport iseobtaiued. A seven-pound  fish is common, and they run up to fourteen  or fifteen.  When you hook a pollack ho always  makes a wild rush for thc weed at tho  bottom. .However strong the tackle, it  is smashed. Thc only way to catch a  pollack is to strike hard and reel in at  once. Off the Connomara. coast immense  twenty-pounders arc found. The strong  est, piauo-Avirc snoods are necessary for  dealing with these  powerful giants.  Tho gainest of all British sea fish is  the noble sea bass, a thick-shouldered,  silvery fellow, who figid.s like a salmon.  Bass are found on almost alt our coasts,  bufc au odd point aboufc thorn is that, in  dilfcrc-nt places duicrcnt baits must bo  used. Off Shoreham live sand eels are  the best bait; at Weymouth the has;?  prefer a strip of mackerel; while on  the Cornish coast half a pilchard is their  favorite tit-bit.  Torbay is ono of the best places for  bass fishing. Fishing off Brixham. a  gentleman took sixteen in an afternoon,  of which the largest, weighed eighteen  pounds and the smallest six. Bass aro  one of the few sea fish Which will rise  to a ily.  Few fish havc more different nicknames than the blue hornless dogfish,  commonly called the tope. Jt is known  as the Avhithouncl, penny dog, rig, and  miller's dog. Three years ago it wan.  found that thc tope's favorite haunt  was Hernc Bay, from lho pier to J*.cub"  ver.  The seiison for tope fishing begins at  the end of May, and the sport which thi.*.  big and unbeaufiful creature affords is  equal to that given by any other fish  in   Northern ��������������������������� seas.    He   fights  fiercely.  and as hc  to a lar .e size, is not  an easy fish to land. Unlike "most se&  fish, except thc bass, when hooked he  jumps clear oufc of the watcr, and 'it  often takes twenty minutes or half an  hour to hind a big one.  A few weeks ago a well-known sea.  fisherman caught live of thcso fish in  about three hours. The smallest weighed twenty-six pounds, the largest forty-  nine, aud the total bag was JS4 pound?.  He. hooked five others, two of which  broke his tackle and three got _. ay-before coming to the gaff, in spite of his  ugly appearance tho tope is by uo means  bad eating.  When we mentioned that we had no  fish in our waters to compare with the  California bass or the Florida tarpou,  we did not mean that there arc none,  here of equal size, bufc that we have  no game fish to match them.

Pale, senseless, and with closed eyes, the  luckless carpenter had apparently  been suffocated in the prison his  hands had wrought;.  They dashed watcr in his face,  loosed his neckerchief, ancl raising  his head, turned it towards the  fresh summer breeze; but for somo  minutes Caspar lay prone and  motionless. .At last a flickering" of  the eyelids, a twitching of the  mouth, and a convulsive quivering  of the great limbs gave token of  returning animation. They forced  some potent spirit between the  white lips, and then with,two or  three wild gasps and a shiver of  his whole frame, Zimmermann's  well-nigh departed spirit again asserted itself.

I - Martha    Schurtz    made    ho idle  boast when  she declared  that she  might perchance raise   more rapid  investigation   of the    contents    of  that' mysterious chest than the constituted authorities.   The girl knew  the strong composition of that mob  elements,   so common  in ��������������������������� cities of  those paits, even more thoroughly:  than the   rulers who professed    to  control it.    Like her mistress, she  too sped quickly on her errand.  "Club   and     bludgeon, citizens,  club  and i,.udgeon,"  she cried, in  .shrill maenacuc tones, like a demoiselle Theroigne of later  times,   as  sho leaped upon a stall in the market-place.   "Hand to.the sword and  bolt to the gate, an you would not  have your men kidnapped from your  midst.    Bah !    I talk not to you,  drivelling cowards as ye are," she  exclaimed,     sneeringly   addressing  the men.    "You bow your necks to  the Prussian, and let him'pick you  for    slaughter Jike    bullocks at  a  fair.    'Tis the women of Zweidorf I  want.

"Like.'.our  rulers, he'd fain take evidence upon the case, and hold himself justified in acting after the opportunity  had gone by.

OCTOBER 27. 1910  GREEN FIELDS FAR AWAY  Last week Enderby was visited by  two real estate agents from Vancouver. They were offering for sale lots  in North Vancouver, "near where the  bridge is going to be built across the  Second Narrows." These real estate  men had the best thing going in Vancouver���������������������������a safe, sure investment���������������������������property which was sure to double in  value in a year or two���������������������������a thing that  could not fail.  They were prepared to sell these  lots at ..300 each���������������������������?10 to-day, $15 at  the time the papers are returned, and  the balance extending over a period  of years.  We were    approached by these real  estate men.   But we did not buy any  Vancouver real   estate,  first because  we did not have   $10, second because  we did not know   where the $15 was  to come   from,   and   thirdly because  we did not want to.    .While we have  no desire   to   discount    the glowing  stories of real   estate values in Vancouver,   we are   satisfied to put our  money into   Enderby   real estate.   It  is safe, and the values have not been  inflated, and are not based upon what  is to happen sometime in the future.  But even if Enderby real estate did  not offer good inducements   we should  ponder a long while before investing  in the real estate   that these agents  are travelling   over   the province to  dispose of.   We believe there are several    thousand    people in   Vancouver  with the money   in   their pockets to  pick up real   estate   "snaps" of the  right kind.    We   believe they are as  capable of knowing a good thing as  we arc.       We   believe    if   this is as  good a thing as was claimed for^ it,  these men, and   others of their type,  would  not have to travel away from  Vancouver to sell  it.     If Vancouver  people do not want to pick up these  "snaps" we feel quite justified in asking to be excused.  Why should wc of the Okanagan  put our money into property in Vancouver that Vancouver people do not  want ? The fact is, Vancouver men  of money and foresight, are sending  their money into the Okanagan to invest in land. If the Okanagan looks  good to Vancouver men, it ought to  be good enough for the man with  money to invest at home. Don't you  think so ?  "At the C.P.R. hotel at Sicamous,  Okanagan fruits figure on the bill-of-  fare, and the sample which was  served to me was a slander on the  Valley. It would; have been very  much better to have left Okanagan  out of the bill-of-fare entirely than to  associate it with the miserable stuff  served up to travellers under that  name.  "Travellers passing through the  country naturally form their impressions and base their judgment of its  products by those with which they  come in contact. If they meet with  poor stuff they naturally can say  nothing good about it, and there is  little doubt that the fallacy which  lias been widely published, that Okanagan apples are inferior to Ontario  fruit has had its origin in the miserable stuff with which travellers  have been served in British Columbia  hotels.  "Okanagan hotels, in fact all hotels  in all parts of the province, would he  doing their districts an inestimable  service by seeing to it that only the  best products of their district were  served on their tables. By making a  little effort in this direction they  could establish not only a profitable  reputation for themselves but for  their districts.  "Of course Okanagan hotels are not  the only sinners in this respect. You  will get the poorest beef-steak on-the  prairies where beef is raised and  shipped in trainloads to Europe.  Often the poorest bread will be  found in the country hotels of Manitoba. In Vancouver the fish served  in hotels and restaurants is not always above suspicion���������������������������and so it goes.  There seems to be a shyness or an indifference to procuring what is best  and easy to get of the products of  their own district by hotels.  MARA APPLES ON DISPLAY  Chas. W. Little placed on display  in Vernon last week some Wealthy,  apples which surprised even those of  Vernon accustomed to handling good  fruit. The apples were grown in his  orchard at Mara. They were very  fancy, and attracted large numbers  of passers-by, who did not know before that such fruit could be raised  in the northern end of the Valley.  Mr. Little has made a study of the  apple possibilities of this section. As  a result of this study, he is convinced  that there are at least three varieties  of apples which the Northern Okanagan can excel in. They are the John-  athans, Wealthies and Mcintosh Reds  and he intends to reduce his commercial orchard to these varieties as  rapidly as he is in a position to  make the change.  Mr. Little states that there is a  flood of enquiries coming in for information relative to the possibilities  of the district.  NEW  Vernon's Board of Trade now has a  membership of 106, Mr. Geo. Heggie  being the last to be admitted. The  Vernon   Board    is    doing good work  VANCOUVER APPLE SHOW  A CRYING    SHAME  "Bruce" McConnell visited the Okanagan last week. He saw many nice  things in tlie development of thc Vallcy, and on the whole, the impression he formed was vcry favorable.  But there was one thing which displeased him greatly. This is what  he says about it in his last letter to  his paper:  "Speaking    of    advertising,    I  am  constrained  to    make a few remarks  on this subject.     They apply  to the  hotels  in    the    Okanagan  itself.   Although this is    the zenith of the apple   harvest   and    both   apples    and  pears are at their best, yet on not a  single hotel  table in  the Valley havc  we met with fruit that was lit to eat  yet alone fit   to    maintain the great  reputation of    that   vallcy for these  fruits.   On the tables when fruit was  to be had at all  were mere culls, or  wind-falls, ill-colored, ill-flavored and  tough.       A traveller    who    did   not  visit the packing houses or orchards  of the district    would  certainly form  a   very  poor   opinion    of    Okanagan  fruit if he   judged    it all by the few  miserable specimens    which he would  meet with in   the    Okanagan hotels.  And  the same thing may be said of  vegetables.     In a land teeming with  garden  products,    where hundreds of  acres of tomatoes.are ripening in the  fields none   are    ever seen upon  the  table of the Okanagan hotels. Canned  peas, string beans and corn in a district where these vegetables are said  to mature   with   a    peerless    flavor,  were regular items on the bill of fare.  A letter from the secretary, states  that there have already been eighteen  entries in .the carload class, for the  Canadian Apple Show. This is five  carloads more than were ever exhibited heretofore at any national or international apple show or world's  exposition. Records of previous apple shows indicate that for every entry in the carload class there was a  half carload for all other exhibits of  the show. At this rate Canada's first  National Apple Show will have fully  25 carloads.  Of the five carloads going from the  Okanagan Valley, only one will be  a straight-variety car. This will be  sent from Kelowna, and will be of  Jonathans. The others will be in the  mixed-variety class.  We are in receipt of a shipment of the very best to  be had. - Perfumed and  non-perfumed.

And it is  none the less revolutionary because it  lacks the noise and fury which accompany the    spinning    of   the  squirrel  cage far to the south.   Very quietly  and with    a certain grim   determination the people   of Canada are moving steadily forward on new���������������������������and in  some cases���������������������������startling lines.     To the  radical the Canadian policy of public  ownership and control may serve as  a hope   and   inspiration; to the conservative as a warning and menace;  but to every   man   of intelligence it  must be a matter of keen interest.  Putting into practical use many of  the teachings of. the Socialists, they  utterly deny any sympathy with Socialism.

This system has  been in existence for two years and  has met with considerable guccess.  A certain   day - of   the week is appointed as banking day, upon  which  the   children   hand   their savings* to  their respective teachers.    Each child  has a card    on    which the money is  entered   up.   The   teacher also has a  book in which   she opens an account  with  each  depositor.   The aggregate  sum is handed by each, teacher to the  principal, who deposits the money in  one of the city banks.   When the deposits of a   pupil   reach the sum of  one   dollar   the    principal   issues   a  check   against   his   own account  in  favor of the pupil, who then becomes  the possessor -of.   a bank account in  his or her ".own name.

Enderby IHE QUEER'S HOUSEHOLD  WOa'ffN   AVHO   OCCUPY POSTS  OF HON Oil IN IT.  Du(ics oi! the Eight   Ladies Who  Fill tin. High and Honorable  Positions.  The ladies of Queen. Mary's  household are divided into four  classes. First- come the mistress  of thc robes, then tho ladies of the  ' bedchamber, usually styled ladies  in waiting, women of the bedchamber and maids of honor. Queen  Victoria as a reigning sovereign  had eight ladies  of each   class in  ������������������������������������������������������ hcr household, says the Gentlewoman.  The number retained by a queen  consort, however, varies according  t-o her pleasure- and convenience.  Queen Mary has ab present in her  eorvico one lady in waiting, three  etxra ladies in waiting and four  women of the bedchamber. Maids  of honor had nofc been appointed  afc the time of writing.  The office of mistress of the robes  to a queen regnant is a political  ono and changes with the Government; bufc that of a queen consort  is in her own gift and may be held  for an indefinite period. The mistress of fche robes must; always bo a  duchess, whereas in case of a queen  consort a widowed duchess may be  appointed if more convenient.  MISTRESS OF THE ROBES.  The duties of a mistress of thc  robes are limited to State occasion. This high official is in the  royal suite afc courts, palace balls  and afc the meeting of Parliament.  Afc such times sho stands behind  tho Queen, and she walks behind  her royal mistress in. any state procession. Also when a procession  drives through the streets the car-  riago in wliich she is seated follows  next after the state carriage of thc  When the courfc is afc Windsor a  maid of honor resides at the castle  .and is in rather close attendance.  One graceful duty is to hand a  bouquet of flowers to her royal  mistress when fche state procession  passes on its way to the dining  room.  Maids of honor receive much  kindness from their royal lady, but  a few wise rules arc made which  needless to say, are carefully respected. "Picture" hats and an  outre- style of dress is nofc allowed, and a maid of honor while on  duty may nofc play cards for money  or go out alone on foot in the  streets of London. She must cither bo accompanied by a friend or  by some sort of duenna.  A maid of honor  is expected to  SCIENCE NOTES.  sovereigns.  Hcr duties arc many at fche time  of a coronation, and during thc  ceremony she is in close attendance  on hcr royal lady. When their Majesties arc in London'a mistress of  the robes resides in her own house  and is conveyed to and from the  scene of her duties in one of the  royal carriages. Bub if thc court  is afc Windsor she remains under  tho  roof of Windsor Casfcle.  The Duchess of Devonshire,  who  has  been chosen to fill    this  high  post, is the elder daughter of Lord  and Lady Lansdowne.    Sho is tall  and   fair    and    dignified,   fond   of  home life and a devoted mother to  her  seven  children.     She  has the  grand manner and will no doubt bo  one of our leading hostesses ; but on  account, of    mourning    Devonshire  House  has  nofc   as yefc under hcr  reign  been  the scene  of any  society entertainments.  A LADY OF THE BEDCHAMBER  to either- a Queen Regent or a  Queen Consort must be a peeress.  .Her     "wait"   varies    from    three  be clever and accomplisheo. She  must be a good linguist, talk well  and be a practised reader aloud.  Also sho should be bright, quick  and obliging and possess that politeness of __ ngs���������������������������punctuality. It  is also assumed that her lips will  be sealed as regards the private affairs of royalty and the ways and  manners of the household.  If a maid of honor chances to be  a peer's   daughter   she    of course  bears   the courtesy  title of   "honorable," but if not she is invested  with  that  style and title immediately  after her appointment.  And  this she    bears    for life,   whether  single or married. And she receives  a badge  of office, which takes thc  form of a miniature of the  QUEEN SET IN DIAMONDS.  In everyday life this can be worn  as  wished,  but when its  owner is  in waiting it must be attached to  the left side of the bodice and used  as  a decoration.    And  the badge-  is retained for life  and  nofc given  up   on  marriage   or   when   leaving  the royal service.   Thc office if maid  of honor is highly esteemed,   as it-  gives much social status and in the  end often leads to a successful mar-  ===^=-._-k_Qo_i^t_____^iiu_^u___o.rdni_r_..to_the_.r-     * \ _    -_   ���������������������������_- __  n,        . -^       ".    i���������������������������ry, rbord _Vrra-nHbad-\���������������������������I_iSther-=  Queen, s convenience.

They must be  either the daughters of viscounts  or barons, or else the granddaugh-  Queen Mary has appointed Lady  Shaftesbury as her lady of the bedchamber. Lady Shaftesbury has  many charms and graces and as  Lady Grosvcnor's daughter it may  be guessed that sho is clever and  cultured beyond the average.- She  likes books and reading, is fond of  music and when in town may often  be seen at the opera, and at concerts both public and private. She  is a good hostess aud receives many  parties afc St. Giles's House, in  Dorset-.  To write of jewels sounds hackneyed, bufc it may be said that Lady  Shaftesbury has one most cherished  ornament.    This  is the brooch  given   her  by  Sir  Thomas   Lipton  when    sho    christened    his    j'acht  Shamrock III.   It shows the Shamrock's flag in emeralds and the flag  of tho Royal Ulster Yacht Club in  enamel  and     sapphires,   while between  theso  are  a   shamrock  and  the figure I1L in large diamonds.  Lady Shaftesbury    has   two   little  girls and a son and heir, Lord Ashley.  Queen Mary has chosen Lady  Ah-lie, Lady Bradford and Lady  Lamington as hcr extra ladies in  waiting.    Lady   Airlie is sister to  Smifclwmd  ered a sad  bereavement in the death of her  husband, who was killed in tho  Boer war, and shc now resides with  her youthful son, tho present Lord  Airlie, at Cortachy Castle in Scotland. Her still young and beautiful face i.s framed in a cloud of  soft gray hair and sho has a gentle  and most attractive- personality.  Somo time ago she went to South  Africa to visit thc grave of her  husband, as he was by his own will  buried where he fell on Diamond  Hill. Lady Airlie is fond of flowers and at her Scotch home has  made a garden of fric.ndK.bip, where  every flower has been planted by  a personal friend or a visitor of  distinction.

Jf ������������������ OBI Iv RULE FOIt SCOTLAND.  Thc Movement is Steadily Gaining  Strength.  Tho movement in favor of home  rule for Scotland with regard to its  purely local affairs is steadily gaining strength. The Scottish National Committee, which is composed of  a number of _the leading Scottish  M. P.'s, has issued a striking manifesto,  in which ifc says :���������������������������  The settlement of the constitutional question will offer an opportunity for reorganizing Parliamentary business on a basis of devolution. Ireland's claim to self-  government is hot likely to be.overlooked ; that of Scotland'is, iu its  own way, no less urgent.  A policy of devolution for Scottish affairs involves a break with  the antiquated procedure of two  centuries. This procedure was imposed upon us at tho union, when  Scotland was practically delivered  into tho hands of bureaucracy.  Scotland is frequently legislated  for  as   an  afterthought.      Clauses  dealing with her affairs are unex-  pectedly tacked on to bills intended  to deal with purely  English questions.    Such Scottish legislation as  is introduced    is initiated    by the  permanent officials of the different  boards, is prepared in London, and  becomes a Government bill before  Scottish '   members    have    had   a  chance of discussing their views before  thoso   responsible   for its introduction.   This has been the fate  of Scotland under all Governments.  The problem before us is to devise  some system of representative control  over  Scottish  affairs in   Scotland, a principle which, if applied  to the different parts of the United  Kingdom, would provide for a true  expression of its own affairs, leaving thc   Imperial Parliament  free  fco transact the business of the Empire.

Crime Can    hc Detected  by    Hid  Pulse Beats.  A new means of detecting forgery is promised by Dr. Lindsay  Johnson, a London ophthalmic  surgeon and author of many scientific works, who has just elaborated  a now theory with -regard to individuality in writing,  He maintains that in certain diseases a person's pulse beats arc  individual and that no one suffering from any such diseases can  control even for a brief space of  time thc frequency or peculiar ir-  r.c_ula._-_s__of_J_nsJieart:s.action. as  shown by a chart recording his pulsation. Such a chart is obtained  for medical purposes by means of a  sphygiuograph, an instrument fitted  to the patient's wrist and supplied  with a needle which automatically  records on a prepared sheet of paper, the peculiar force and frequency of thc pulsation.  . Dr.. Lindsay Johnson, holds :the  opinion  that the pen  in the hand  SENTENCE SERMONS.  A jellyfish has no collisions.  A loose tongue often indicates a  tight fisfc.  No man is old enough to be another man's conscience.  Character is seen in motives, bufc  ifc never stays there.  The see-nie-suffer saint is a twist-  eded sign on the Zion road.  Many fail to do any great good  because they will .not do little kindnesses.  Many preachers would reform if  sentenced to read their own sermons.  No man is really trusting providence who is letting his muscles get  flabby.  This world knows nothing real or  worth while without dreams and  visions.  You cannot really love men unless you aro making it possible to  live with them.  No man can long be content to  measure his possessions by the poverty of other people.

The next  is thc May, of Whitehaven, sometimes e .Red the Molly Ashcroft- fco  wi-tinguish her from other Mays.  The May was built at Cowes in  1798, so that she is 112 years old,  ten years older than the Polly.  Her present owner regularly fishes in hcr with a crew of three or  four. She is a jigger smack. She  was dismasted in a gale last w .iter  but she is in first-class trim to-day  nnd her owners speak highly of-licr  seagoing qualities.  Eighteen years ago the "May was  practically rebuilt, but a boat must  bo essentially sound to stand oxten  sive repairs, and the fact thercforo  does not really detract so much as  one might think from tho wonder  of her immense age.  from tho hejid in a natural manner." It is a novel device, in other  words, "for effecting polite salutations by the elevation and rotation  of tlio hat on tho head of fche saluting party, when said person  bows to the person saluted, tho  actuafion of the hafc being produced  by mechanism within it, and without thc use of thc hands in any  manner."  No truly rural person could ever  havo been responsible for the invention of .  EYEGLASSES FOR CHICKENS,  which was protected by United  States patents recently. Thc glasses aro modelled much after the  fashion of grandpa's "'specs.' tho  nose rest being enlarged to go over  the chicken's head, while the ear  hooks  arc joined in  the back.  No claim is'made that- the chicken's eyesight is poor, or that magnifiers ever are needed that it may  thc better discover the reluctant  worm or thc elusive bug, but the inventor docs say that the glasses  "are designed to prevent chickens  pecking out each other's eyes."  The inventor's attempt to-enforce .  all chickens to wear the device, by.  legislative"action" in Kansas did not'  succeed.  Member^ of secret societies, who  sometimes may bo put to much  trouble to secure a sufficiently irascible goat for the purpose of initiating new members = in their respective lodges, will be glad to  learn that an.inventive genius has  como to their assistance. The do-  vice is  A MECHANICAL GOAT,  wliich can bo pufc in the closet when  not needed; that requires no feeding,  and practically no care.  Also  it may   be  handled   by its  keeper  without fear of'consequences. This  mechanical   goat is   mounted on a  tripod which runs on three wheels,  the front one being" loosely pivoted."  A handle in the rear is for the purpose of pushing it.

Residents of Kansas and other  States in thc cyclone bell, who aro  forced, to retire frequently .to. cy-.  clone cellars and then organize  searching parties to find "their  homes when the storm has passed,  will be pleased with the invention  of  A TOII. A DO-PROOF HOUSE.  This is builfc in the shape of a submarine, or a dirigible balloon. '  From one end there is a vane or  fall, which is designed to keep tho  house pointing in the direction of  the wind, thc house being mutinied'  on a- pivot at its centre, and turiid  freely on a circular track.  Tails    are    common    enough    on  windmills and  weather   vanes,   bub  hero is probably the. first time that'  the idea has been adapted to  residences.    The wind-breaking end of  the house, thc inventor says, is re-'  enforced  and  windowless,  and the  door opens    on   a   [light    of   steps  wheeled  at the bottom,  which foi- !  low a- cricular path,   that tenants j  may. always,   have    ������������������  place  upon!  which to descend.

S. ������������������A-  DEN-POWELl. was the guest of  honor nt a luni.chcon of the Canadian Club at Victoria, the distinguished  visitor taking as a topic, '"'The Boy  Scout Movement," of: whieh ho is the  originator. Mr. Godfrey, president of  tho club, presided, and the guest- of  honor, on  rising, said:  "Mr. Chairman and Gentlemen,���������������������������It  is difficult for me to rise and thank you  ��������������������������� as I should like to do for thc vcry  warm and generous reception you havo  given to me. J. am afraid I have come  here at the tail of a very long run of  illustrious speakers, and you will not  want to hear me talk, especially as I  can only attempt to talk upon a subject  which interests mc, my own fads, which  perhaps do not interest anybody else.  Still, you havc tliat excellent law that  a mail may not speak for more than  half an hour, and therefore you will  get an end of me before very long.  In the meantime, I should like, if you  will allow me, to explain in a very few  words what the Boy Scouts are, what  is our aim, how we carry it out, what  results we have obtained, and how wc  'think it may be of'use to you, in your  community  here.  "Now the boy scouts, those urchins  you see going around with poles, shirts,  and'cowboy hats, look like boys playing a game. So they arc, from their  point of view at first, bufc there is a  great deal underlying that game. We  don't, try to make soldiers of them.  Pcople seem to think ifc a cadet corps  which is altogether apart from our  main point. Our main object is to  make good citizens. That, you will  admit, is a larger object than u -iking  soldiers, because ifc-makes them patriots  in tho first place, aud soldiering and  sailoring will come in after thafc. "We  try to do that by a method which appeals   to   thc   boys   themselves   rather  ��������������������������� than by drilling ifc into them. Tn the  old country, there is a great need of  some sort of manly education for" the  boys, especially those who come from  thc slums of lhe big cities. As you  know, wc have a vast army of uneni-  ' ployed now daily' growing up in the  country whieh threatens to bc something more than a nuisance, to be a  danger and a canker in the middle of  ''our "nation.    - But - you  have   none of  ' that  in  this  country. -   Therefore  you  - have not great need such as we feel  for education for the boys   in character  " and manliness outside.their school walls.  You cannot teach these things between  ' the school'" Avails. 'You cannot mould  the man as you would like there. Outside there are already a large number  of organizations at it;  "I don't claim that thc boy scouts  movement has any originality in that  way, but we,make it attractive for the  boys. We make it so that the boys will  like  to  take it np.    Wc do -not force  ' it upon them. The need is not so great  in this country, and perhaps you think  it futile to mention ifc at all. "But I  think there is some need even here if  "only to put discipline into them. The  boys are manly enough, are independent  enough, and have fine examples of manliness before them iu their forefathers,  but a country building itself into a  groat nation."such as you are doing  must take examples from others, seeing  where they failed and where they succeeded. Your next-door neighbors are  a now nation who have arrived. They  have their great and their weak points,  and I take it that among their weak  points���������������������������they acknowledge it themselves  ���������������������������is the need for instilling discipline  into the rising' generation. They are  taking up means outside thc school  ==%alls="foi-JHn-aiTiirig=tlicir^boys=-for-f=as-  it is well said, it is not the boys who  are well up in the three 'Rs' who aTO  tho big successes iu life. The self-made  men in life are the men with character  rather' than education.  "One great essential in character is  discipline, the discipline which brings  about self-sacrifice and tho will to obey  orders, to carry out the spirit, of a great  movement  rather than  seeking indivi-  _. dual ends. .   w   "It seems a large object to connect  with these ragamuffins, but they can be  onenccte G,a--pa iplnS S   uoDouess  connected, and I think it is surprising  to see how the movement influences them  from the higher and moral side as well  as teach thorn how to become handy  men. In the word 'scout' wo do not  mean merely the military scout. We include thoso men on the frontiers, and  you know them well in this couutnry,  wlio arc trekking in the wild, carrying  on thc job because it is their duty;  t.he men who have to rely on their own  endurance, their own courage,'and their  own knowledge to come out of their  difficulty carefully. They are men  strong to help each other in times of  emergency and stress. They have a  strong feeling of comradeship, and they  have a strong fceliug of patriotism.  But when they come from the wilds,  they are as tender as children and they  are chivalrous to a degree. They are  the best type of men in our Empire.  ���������������������������You .cannot get them in the cities;  there they are luxuriated out of ifc. We  hold up to the boys these men as scouts  of the nation. We tell the boys a  scout does this and that and he knows  we mean a frontiersman, the manliest  type of his race. We teach these boys  to be backwoodsmen rather than soldiers. We teach them how to build a  fire, to pitch a.tent, to swim a stream,  to hack down a tree, and all thoso details that delight a boy, and he feels  that he belongs to that great fraternity  of scouts.  "We discountenance military drill  because that makes the boy part of a  machine whereas we want to develop  the individuality. They have to obey  orders quickly and smartly, but each  boy has his own job to do and is using  bis individual wits and hands. We  teach him ambulance work and sailing,  anything but military drill, which destroys the individual. Soldiering is objected to conscientiously by a great  many parents because they think it  introduces the boy unnecessarily early  in life to the idea of fighting his fellow-  mau and bloodthirstiness. Therefore we  have to consider that point of view,  and wc meet ifc halfway by not developing it. That conies later on, when he  has learned the meaning of ifc aud when  he has come to years of discretion he  can still take up soldiering. The scout  movement does teach him all the essentials: self-reliance, looking after himself on a campaign, how to scout, to  hide himself, to get information, to  move about at night, to read maps,  make them and to report. That give's  all tlie essentials of soldiering without  the dry bones of 'right and left' and  tactics.  "It has taken a long time organizing  the movement because there was such  a rush of boys, and there was the difficulty of getting them under control.  The movement has grown of itself. I  merely suggested it to thc boys of the  cadet corps who first applied ifc to their  own organization and then a great number of them took it up outside. The  cadet corps have feared that we stand  iii the way of their recruitment. Ifc  has not been found so in practice, but,  even if it were, it has to be considered  whether they arc doing all thafc was expected of them. They are doing great  work undoubtedly in teaching discipline  and patriotism, but at home the actual  results are that not ten per cent, of the  boys who are trained as cadets go into  the army. They have lost the glamour  of the uniform, are bored with tho drill  and do nofc want to take it up again.  There is no harm in inviting the boys  to be boy scouts, seeing that it can be  run in connection with the cadet corps,  by making boys scouts-from ten to thirteen and then making them cadets. At,  thc same time there is a large pei centage from the scouts- who do pass out  fco take up soldiering, about SO per cent,  up .to the present time. Thc scouts  might also be of great use to your future  navy because we teach them to bc seamen.  We sound the call of the sea and  teach seamanship, ��������������������������� all by games and  competitions. That is, we teach them to  be pirates or smugglers and revenue mon  in turn and we have whale hunting.  Whale hunting is a great excitement indeed, although the whale is "only a log.  But in the end'it does train them in becoming good boatmen and good seamen,  and your country affords unlimited opportunity for carrying out that form of  training.' You can establish vessels in  your different harbors, lakes and rivers  which would serve as admirable clubhouses for the boys, moored in position.  Some of those, old sealing schooners  would make excellent club ships and thc  boys could live there week ends, and  have the call of the sea sounded in  their ears in a most easy manner by a  gentleman fond of the sea.  I have evcry hope the scoiit movement will live" alongside the other associations aud will help them in every  wav we can, joining in, a great combine  to "deal with this difficulty of manly  education of our rising generation in  citizenship. We propose to make it a  little more open than the other organizations in the matter of religion because we don't undertake to teach the  boys any specia lform of religion. -We  leave that to their own parents and pastors. What we insist upon is that the  boy should profess some form of religion  .nr n .lnthnr-and-observe-t.and.carry_.into.  practice one point common to all religions, and that is to do a good turn  to"his fellow man every day of his life.  It is ono o. the points which the  boys havc taken up with the best spirit.  They do carry out that idea of doing a  good turn, whether to a person or an  animal, and it does not matter how  small the good turn is���������������������������it holps to build  character. Thoy have been sacrificing  their amusements to do it and they have  been-risking their lives.   .-  -   - ���������������������������  We have had an immense amount of  life savingduringthc.se past two years  of our existence, to a proportion which  I had never dreamt of. Wo have had to  award 130 medals to boys who had actually risked their lives in saving others  and apart from the medals we havc distributed hundreds of certificates in cases  of minor good which they havc done  without risking themselves. The only  difficulty is to find out when thoy have  done these good turns, because wc don't  allow them to go bragging aboufc it.  They have to be reported by somebody  else! Wc don't want the boys to makc  heroes of themselves; wc leave that to  others.  They learn ambulance work, saving  from drowning, and they learn firemen's  work, whieh is the finest kind of training; those points that come in useful  directly an accident has occurred. I  could go on all the afternoon with the  different things we try to instil into  them, but another important feature is  that we try to teach them handicrafts  useful to them when they grow up and  become men. In England wo suffer most,  fearfully from that disease of blind  alley occupations, such as being newsboys and vanboys, occupations which  boys take up because they bring in a  wage for the time being and therefore  satisfy the poorer kind of parents who  do not look ahead. Thoy follow these  occupations to a certain ago and then  are thrown upon the world without having learned a trade or without learning  to bc energetic and tney sink into the  ranks of the unemployed and unemployable. That is to a large extent a condition which has to be faced and the  army is increasing.  It is to try to prevent that that wo  are teachingthese boys hobbies in con-  NO baking powder that contains alum iis fit to put  in your home baked food.

Perhaps it is making  them jacks of all trades and masters  of none but it gives them ideas aud  among the hobbies they may find one  wThich suits them better-than another,  'mey can go ou and develop that until  it becomes their profession for life. It  is a very simple thing to get the boys  to take up hobbies. After a hobby has  been adopted, the boy chooses to pass  an examination we give him. We-don't  actually toacn the hobby bufc we offer a  badge for proficiency in one. If the boy  wants to learn something of carpentry,  he goes to a carpenter and gets him to  teach him what is required to pass our  test. Then he presents himself for examination. The examination is conducted by two scoutmasters and a "carpenter  and if the boys succeed in passing, he is  rewarded with a badge. After he gets  six badges, he is allowed to wear an  aiglet which makes him au awful swell.  We have got thirty-three different  trades for which we give badges, and  after a boy has passed thc tests in half  a dozen of these he goes out with his  ha.lf dozen and his aiglet. Then aftor  tliat if he wants to qualify for four  =m ore. badgcs^hcr^goes>~on=un__ becomeir*a-  King's scout and wears a crown above  his other decorations. If he goes still  further on and earns twenty-five badges  he gets thc order of thc Silver Wolf, a  little silver wolf to hang upon his neck.  It sounds very nonsensical, but it appeals to the boys immensely, and they  try to get those badges. I wish I could  have brought with mc tho troop of sixteen boys who were elected to come out  to Canada on this trip after an examination" iffknowledg." of Canada" for which  300 boys entered. I wish you could sec  them because among them four have  got the order of thc Silver Wolf, having  passed in twenty-five handicrafts, and  twelve of thorn havc become King  scouts. But they will meet many thousands of their brother boy scouts of  Canada in Toronto afc the end of this  month, and there the}' can show their  badges, and I hope they will have a  very large following here of boys learning handicrafts.  That shows you they arc not playing  games in an indcscriininatc way. They  are learning not only handicrafts but  they arc learning to be chivalrous and  thrifty. Every boy beforo he can get  a badge at, all has got to havo a bank  balance. It is not large. He has only  to have a shilling, but his bank book has  to bc produced and it shows that he has  broken the ice and has taken the first  step towards  becoming a thrifty man.  I am not going to detain you much  longer but I should like to point out  how we arc doing things locally, and  if we could have your support and your  sympathy, it would be a very great help  towards making these young fellows  good men in fche future. The movement  means a good deal to you in the development of your city, of your province  and of your country, and I hope you will  help us if only by criticism.  A general principle of tho organization is to havc a council for each province. You know that at the head of  the whole movemont our late King was  most sympathetic and helpful, and he  has been followed by tho-present King  as the head of tho movement. In this  country l<ord Grey is an enthusiastic  supporter, and the Governor is president  and he is supported by a council which  is now about, to be formed and which  the Bishop of Columbia, the Premier of  .the province and the Minister of Education have promised to join. No doubt  many of the prominent gentlemen will  come-forward to the council whose function is to advise the associations in the  different districts. We want to raise  associations in-all the chief centres of  industry so that we get -local administration and local control of the movement. These local associations arc made  up of gentlemen generally interested in  the boys, and they elect officers from  among the younger men���������������������������I include all  those between _8 and 20 years. Each  gentleman takes charge of a troop of  thirty to forty boys, which is divided  into patrols of eight boys each with its  own leader. That is an important point  in our movement, responsibility is put  upon the shoulders of the boy from the  earliest age. The patrol leader is the  commander of his little party of eight,  and so you got- down almost to the individual being properly trained. Thc  patrol leader has charge of the training  of his patrol under the scoutmaster, and  with that responsibility upon him we  find the boy rising fco the occasion. So  tha t"~i f "~any^o f^-_ u~haTC"���������������������������a'nry^yaxnxg-  hooligan just make him a patrol leader  and it will be thc making of him. The  hooligan is just the one I like to begin  with because lie has character and  makes thc best fellow in thc end.  We deprecate the boys going arouud,  begging for things, a practice which is  becoming too common. Jn England  every cricket or football club formed  by boys goes around with tho hat. They  learn thc habit and when thoy want to  go "to" tho technical school "or buy" tools  or buy furniture to get married, they go  around saying, "Give us something."  Our boys aro taught that when they  want to get their hats or their poles  they must work for them. In sonic  places the equipment i.s first bought for  them and they pay it back gradually,  but I prefer to encourage them' to buy  at the beginniiur for themselves, starting with their hat or with their polo.  The greatest help you can give them  is to offer thom a job, and then they see  tliat they must work in order to get thc  money.  We are also trying lately to improve  the boys' status by forming organizations for their employment in Great  Britain.

But once  they get into it, they find there is a  wonderful fascination in the work, fascination which they never expected.

I find that when once a  young man uas nibbled at the bail, ho  is quickly hooked. It does not require  much money or much time. It is not  work, but a pleasing and fascinating  occupation, and I heartily recommend it  to every man who wants to do some  good for his country and his kind, if  the movement gets support, I am sure  it will do great good to your rising and  promising city, and to the great country  which  is growing up around  you.  | We guarantee the  I  perfect quality and  absolute purity of  the tobaccos used in  the manufacture of  SweetCaporal  Cigarettes.

Mr. Ellison expatiate on .the merits of the Northern  Okanagan as an apple-growing district. The Minister of Finance and  Agriculture feels that he lias learned  much about thc various sections of  this favored district in his many  years' residence here, and he is convinced that tlio. district from Salmon  Arm to Sicamous, and east from Bnderby to-Mabel Lake, is capable of  producing the best apples in the  world, particularly Wealthies and  Jonathans, and the later winter  varieties. Wealthy and Jonathan apples grown in this district without  irrigation, stand up longer, ancl are  better keepers in every way than the  same varieties of fruit grown farther  south in the irrigated district.  Mr. Ellison wanted to encourage  the apple growers of this district.  He said he was anxious to see this  end of the Okanagan come into its  fullest and best in the fruit industryf  At Vernon thc past week he had  seen displayed in onc of the windows  at Vernon Wealthy apples from Mara,  which, he confessed freely, were the  best lie had ever seen, ancl hc wished  to congratulate the fruit growers of  Mara on their splendid window display.
