Mr. H. E.

All persons wishing to join nre requested to please give their names to  the secretary, Mr. R. R. Gibbs, as  soon as possible, so that the necessary number of copies of the music  may be procured.  As was intimated in last week's issue, the nominations were handed in  to .the __Returning__Offlcer_as _soon as,  the law would allow, of thc following gentlemen to act on the City  Council for 1912: Mayor, J.

All of these gentlemen  have had extensive experience in local  municipal affairs for the pi.it few  years, some as members of previous  Councils, others in connection with  Board of Trade work, and all understand thc needs of the town thoroughly and will work in harmony  with the policy adopted by thc outgoing Council. We doubt if a Utter  body of men could be named for the  positions.  NOTICE  All bills due G. E.

VM  M'7  THE LIMIT  It is surprising to what extremes  in argument some men will go in  order to persuade themselves that  they arc right.     An exchange says:  "One of the most prominent business men of thc town says he never  has felt the need of the Sunday service, and has suffered no inconvenience because of the one day missed  by the outgoing mail, and he believes  the arrival of mail on Sunday night  which would be distributed during  Monday monjing would be a nuisance,  upsetting the 'day's routine."  If it is going to upset this prominent business man's routine for the  mail arriving on Sunday evening to  be distributed on Monday morning,  the Government should by all means  immediately discontinue tho Sunday  service ! A1 busines routine that can  be upset by a Monday morning mail  is too- precious a proposition to be  disturbed. It should be framed, and  put in a glass case.  stitutc on May 4, 1908, uc expressed,  in simple language, thc hopes of  those who work for a united [Umpire:  "If wc hold hands across thc sea we  shall preserve for future generations  a noble heritage founded upon the  highest,patriotism nnd knit ogether  by tics of race, mutual sympathy and  regard."  NOT GUILTY  The neatest nnd most distinctive  building in town is tho new "rcction  of The Walker Press. Seldom is such  artistic care shown in thc ilanning  and decoration of a provincial printing office, but the trouble is well repaid, and thc new office of H. M.  Walker is a pleasure to look upon.  Pleasantly tinted fire-proof wails, artistically decorated shelves, beamed  ceilings, surely Walker must have  planned it while under the effects of a  teaspoonful of' potent hashish.���������������������������Vernon News correspondent.

SIR ROBERT  BORDEN  According to xinformation received  in Ottawa through English mail, Premier Borden will be Sir Robert Borden after the distribution of New  Year honors. The conferring of  knighthood upon thc prime minister  thus early in his administrative  career will be a recognition of his  fight for British connection and unity  of the Empire in the recent election.  It is encouraging to note that the  prevalence of Fruit Pit in one orchard  has no effect' whatever on the orchards of the same district.

"U ain't my custom to  play with stiangors," sez Jabe'/., an' ho  ������������������������������������������������������. was fast gettiu'. into tho dangerous  stage, "but you are my guest. 1,won't  take; ::iy. money back, but if Dick is  ������������������������������������������������������.willin',.I'll write him a check for yours  un' you cau take you condemned filthy  gold an' get out o' hero"  "1 id n't iiskin' my money back," sez  Piker. "I'm game. 1 am; but 1 can't  navvy this fii'iicmc o' dividin' up after  the game." lie paused a second, an'  then he-/, clear au' distinct. "This ain't  exactly the way 'at Silver Dick used to  play thr; game when he made a business  of it."  Piker leaned back an-' stared at D.ck  in a gneerin' sort of way; while me an'  the ol-' man stared at him with our  eyes poppin ' out. Silver Dick, Silver  Dick; every oue iu the West had  heard oi Silver Dick the gambler, an'  'Jthe smoothest article, acconlin' to ro-  purts. 'at over threw a card. Dick  didu't say a word; just sat there with  his face pale as a sheet,' an' his glit-  terin' black eyes da-tin' flame at Piker's nasty grim  "I see you don't recognize mc with :i  full beard," sez Piker; "down at Laramie they  called  me -Jo  Denton.      It  cjwas  mv  cousin.  Big Brown,  tbat  you  shot."' '     ,  "Do yon happen to know what I shot  him for?" Dick's faee was as hard as  marble, an' his voice was as cold as ice.  "3 wasn't there at the time," sen  Piker in an irritatin' voi������������������e, "but I  know that il was because he spoke  about it bein' a little peculiar that you  held such wonderful good hands on  your own deal.''  Dick didu't make uo reply, but. he  slipped his hand inside bis shirt, an' I  knew he had hi.s gtm there.  "1 say that this w*s the excuse for  your skootin';" Piker went ���������������������������������������������, bent ou  gettin' all the trouble tlae* was; "bit I  alius believed, myself, tlwit it started  over tlie woman you was koejw'."    '  Dick's gun flashed in tke air; but  quick as a' wink ol' Cast Kiwi lwouked  it up with his right hant-1. an' af,rtck  ���������������������������at Dick with -his left. The ballet  crashed through the coiling, an' Dick  grabbed Jubefc' wrist at the. same instant." Piker miidu a ijmick snap under  the table, a gun wunt'oft", an' thc bullet,  tore - through' the slack o'. Dick/.s vest  an' spinged into the waH behind him.  Then I kicked oil'.my hobbles an' soiled in on my own book. Dick had alius  been white to mo���������������������������an' back in tha old  days h������������������ was the squarest teller .on  earth���������������������������-so 1 felt-tnightly.-relieved when  I caught Piker 'iu'the ceiitre-of ������������������������������������������������������'tho  forehead with a full, left-swing. It  wan a blow 'at nobody didn't have no  grounds   to' complain   of.     The chuir  ! him in tho voice of a father savin1 faro-  well to the son who had gone wrong  once too often. "I don't care nothin'  about the money, Dick," ho said.  "You'd 'a' been welcome to all 1 had;  but 1 can't forgive you about my little  girl. You made her love you, yon  .v-liemed to do it, an' you came here  with thatoud in view. 1 trusted you  from thc ground up, but 1 caii see a  heap o' things now 'at 1 wouldu't see  before. 1 had n letter written from  Bill Andri-WH tellin' mc 'at he had  heard you brag 'at you intruded to get  holt o' my money, au' that it would  pay nn. to search you instead o' sus-  pectin' him���������������������������"  "Where was the letter from?" askod  Dick.  "Laramie," sex tbe ol' man.  "Kind o' curious," so?. Dick, an'  his voice was as bitter as the dregs o'  sin; "that's where Denton' came from  too."  "Von deceived mc all along," soz  the ol' mau. not payin' much heed to  Dick, but speakin' mostly to himself;  "You know 'at what I hate worse'n  anything else is deceit���������������������������an' here you've  been fast an' loose with women���������������������������"  Dick tried to say somethin,' but the ol'  man stopped him. "That was bad  enough." he went on, "but I'm no  fool; 1 know the world, an' 1 could  forgive you a good deal; but hang it,  I never could forgive you bein' a professional gambler���������������������������a man that lives by  deceit an' trickery an' false pretenses.  Lookin' back now, it strikes mc a.s  bein' mighty curious how you got thc  best o' Piker's deals too. Was Piker  or Denton, or whatever his name is, a  gambler too?"  "'lie was," answered Dick in a low  tone.  Thc o)' man squared h'imself, an' his  face was as fierce as the face of an oi'  slu. bear. "Of all tlie"human snakes  T. ever heard of, you crawl the closest  to thc ���������������������������.'round. You csine here an' act  as square as a man cau mti.1 yon have  mode us al) think the world of ya; an'  yet i* your black heart you were all  the time plotbin'-to get my money,  usin' my Kttio girl as a burglar would  use a bar to open a safe with. Even  then you couldn't wait iu patience;  vour  inborn  cusseduess  forced  vou  to  ���������������������������well.  P.arbie  knows.    Good-bye."  Dick turned on his heel an' stalked  out o' tho room, Barbie dropped into  a chair sobbin ���������������������������', mr me an' the old man  continued to look liko the genii/ine  guilty parties. Then it occurred to me  that niebbe it would be wise to see if  Piker was worth botheriii' with. First  thing 1 did though was'to see where  ho hail licit his gun when ho fired bo-  ueatlt lho table. The' wasn't no gun  on tho. lloor. an' I couldn't nowise  savvy it.  Hi; "had om. gun in his holster, but  ho couldn't have pulled it ont without  bein' soon, an' ho couldn't have put it  back, nohow. I was plumb mystified,  an' had about give it up when 1 came  across it. I own up it war. a clever  dodge, but snakish to the extreme. He  had fashioned a rig just above his  knee, an' when he had sat down tlie  gun had been pointin' at Dick all  through the game, an' nophin' but  Jabe:'. makin' Dick move had saved  him. .It was a blood-thirsty scheme,  an' T felt like stampin' his face into a  jelly.  His head was still bent over an' he  was black in the. face; but when 1  straightened him out an' soused a lot.  o' water over him, ho came out of it,  au ���������������������������' .1" fair itched to make him oat his  gun���������������������������knoo-riggin' an' all! He sat up  an' began to fe-'l what a low-down,  sneakin' cuss Dick had alius been. 1  let him sing a couple o' verses, air  then 1 sez: "Now, you look here, you  slimy spider, Dick *s too busy just now  to attend to your case an' if you don't  swallor thom few renin ck*? instant T'U  be obliged to prepare you tor the coroner  mvsclf.

You stand there  with a gun in yonr hand an' I stand  here with none; you brag 'nt no man  can't doubt your dealin' without havin'  cause to remember it; but I tell you to  your teeth that you're a sneak an' a  cheat an' a low-grade coward."  ;-Die It stood with shis" head ' thrown'  back nn' his left hand clenched, while  his right gripped .the butt of his gun  so   fierce that .the  knuckles stood  out  flew over backwards. Piker's feet made (white as chalk an' the veins was blaek  a lovely circle, an" his head tried to  iiisiini������������������ie itself iut-o the mopboard. He  letnained quiet, an" I started in to satisfy my curiosity.  "Stop whore you arc," commanded  Dick, an' I. stuck in my tracks. "No  man is allowed tu doubt my deal without havin* something _fo remind hiwi of  it. I ain't a-goiu' to kill that snake  now; but I do intend to remove his trigger fingers."

"Thank you, Happy. Good-night.''  She held her head high as she walked  out o' tho room; but I knew that livin'  serpents was tcrvrin' at her heart.  01' Cast-Steel sat for an hour, his  chin on his hands an' his elbows on  tho table, lookin' at the pile of money  an' chocks on  the table before him.

It drives brother to-'murder  brother, au' neither love nor friendship is proof against its curse. l.t  starves those who scorn it, while thoso  who pay out thoir souls for it find  themselves sinking, sinking, sinking in  its hideous quicksand until at last it  closes above their mad screams.

Well. I knew it was ol' Cast Steel  who was spoakin', but it was mighty  hard to believe it. "I don't mean  no disrespect to you, .labez," I soz,  odgin' toward the door, "but I'll see  you damned first."

Over a hundred years  ago Mgr. do Chaupy proved that the  only situation answering eutiroly to the  description was about eight miles from  the modcrK Vicovaro, tho Vicus Varia  that Horace mentions as his nearest  town, at the foot of' which runs the  little river now called tho Liconza,  which is evidently the digentia of Horace and which passes close to thc little,  ancient..Roman town of Mandela.  But theory has now given place to  actual discovery:' -; Visible'"today- are  the reamiiis of the villa, itself and.of  the ploasure grounds that surroundod it.  The villa stood -in the midst of a magnificent garden and was surrounded by  a crypto_.'portico which . protected it  from tho excessive heat of summer, lii  the middle of the garden was an artificial lake 350 yards square and six  feet deep, fed by thc waters of the  river Liconza by moans of a clever hydraulic system, and tho pipes of this  system are almost intact today and  with a little repair could bo used for  their original purpose.  Tho same hydraulic system supplied  the baths, and those, too, can be easily  traced aud their various departments  identified. Thoy consisted of many  rooms, each with its appropriate functions for bathing, cooling, or repose. It  would be hard to imagine a more elaborate luxury. Judging from thc litter of mosaics, frescoes, and stucco, thc  villa itself must have boen a work of  art in its every detail. The body of  tho building was composed of reticulated work characteristic of tke finest period of Roman architecture in which the  exquisitely regular form of the stones  -gi-ves-to=th&=.wall&-th(u.apponriince-of_.a  thc more .easily-..laundered if the sides  are joined with tiny buttons and buttonholes instead of- with a permanent,  seam, as it may theu be spread flat  aud ironed smoothly. Bags of ueavy  white linen or of crash should be embroidered with thc coarsest of floss,''as-  otherwise the design will not show up.  To trim thom there is a coarsely twisted fringe wliich looks especially well  with the long coarse cotton cordage  handles wliich come ready to be adjusted by,,the amateur bag-maker.  Cord handles arc sometimes used with  the bags of imitation white crochet  laco, but white twisted ribbons are  rather--daihter, and to make thom i*  perfectly easy. These lace bags neeo.'-  sarily are lined with white linen, and  into thein should bofpnt a small bag  of silk coverodwith crochet laco, and  holding the tiniest of powder pull's.  Cotton voile bags aro very dainty it  not especially substantial, and they must  bo very delicately omboriderod with  fine floss, as, the heavier sort tears tin-  mesh of the material. Somctimos the\,  havo twisted ribbon handles and ari:  fitted with top bars of celluloid, but  thoy look quite as woll if closod in tho  ordinary drawstring manner.  One-half inch wide silk or satin ribbon woven in chip basket manner and  laid ovor a ilnen lining makes a fragile,  looking but really substantial bag foi  .summer serv'u-e, and as ribbon is inexpensive, and to weave it together in  basket manner is easy, almost any girl  may havo several of these roceptacles  precisely to match as many frocks. Usually tho woven ribbon bag is mounted  upon a metal frame, fo be obtained by  dissecting some ont-of-commission leather bag, but, lacking ono of those, a  celluloid embroidery hoop will answer  tho same purpose.  Unless the taffeta bag precisely  matches thc taffeta costume it doos nor  look smart, and as it is invariably made  simply and without other ���������������������������ornamentation than embroidery done in the sium-  tono, it belongs to the realm of tailored  accessories. But on tho other hand it -  noed cost scarcely anything beyond thf  price of thc embroidery floss and tin;  cordage handles.  THE "DANE-HOLES'' OF ENGLAND .  In the counties of Kent aud Sissex  in England there aro to be seen certai-r  curious well-like excavations, popularly  supposed to date from the time of Danish rule in England.

Tt makes "ono ache to .see an illustration of a Japanese sleeping-block,  hollowed out just, enough to permit of  the neck being adjusted thereto. Tho  Germans'' notion of night repose does  iiot-cftmc much nearer our idea of comfort. There are many ill-made and "unsatisfactory beds (from the American  point of view) to be found in the  Kaiser's  dominions.  German beds, almost without exception, arc single���������������������������so much so, indeed,  that the occupant, if he attempts to deviate an inch or two from his position,'  finds himself sprawling on tho floor.  .The shoots, bed-blankets, etc., are mad*1  just to Jit the beds, and arc never wide  enough to tuck in.

Many of the German hotels use tho  French pillow, which is about half the  size of tho mattress and stuffed out so  hard and plump that about the only  benefit the tired traveler gets from it is  to have it servo as a rest i'or his buck  while ho sloops in a sitting position.

A fine sand  originating on the shores of Normandy  has boon found distributed on the  beaches as far east as Denmark. One  investigator has shown that tho oast-  ward march of these sands is due to thc  fact that all the soa waves approaching tbe coast from Brittany eastward  break in nearly parallel'lines, with an  easterly motion. The result is that tho  sands always progress in that direction.  But the process is slow and gradual,  and measurements havo proved that the  sand traverses, forward and backward,  perpendicular to the shore, a total distance eight thousand times as great as  that which it covers, in the same length  of time, in its eastward journey,  it he wasn't, bound  for  are mado. in all manner of odd shapeB.  materially increasing thc yield sf tint*  rightly boiouged.

Not only were provisions prevented from entering thc country, but  the supply, such as it was, held iu storage could not bo got at. And in addition to this a general railway strike  was threatened, and for a couple of  days partially enforced. This meant  that the country's internal stores of  food could not be moved. Had thc  strike boon of longer duration, had tbe  railway system of the kingdom been  completely paralyzed, tho result could  only have been that a state of semi-  starvation would have been produced  over vast sections of the industrial  north and  midlands.  The south, the east, and the west, being   more   self-supporting,   would   have  fared'better, but throughout the manufacturing districts, where town jostles  with town, and whore some twenty million people live within earshot of factory sirens, and where agriculture has  barely room 'oven to exist, the distress  must have beon appalling. Even as it  was the prices of the staple articles of  consumption doubled on the average all  round.   For a brief but sufficiently terrible   moment   England   found   herself  .confronted with a forecast of the conditions that  would obtain if the British  navy we're to bo worsted in battle and  to lose command of the sea.    A simultaneous cessation of work at the docks  and on the railways���������������������������and nothing less  than that seemed for.a while to be pos-'  sible���������������������������would, indeed, have-been^ almost  worse than a*defeat at sea.    The crippling  of  the  British   fleet  might  conceivably mean the cutting off of England   from  all   her normal  sources  of  iood-supply from abroad.    But so'long  as tho railways were working, sho*could  still,  for a "time at  any rate,  support  herself and distribute within her own  borders food-for. her .people and raw  material for her industries. The recent  strikes, however,-bad they been-more  prolonged and .-more_ effective, would  have had all the effect of a complete  blockade.by a hostile fleet coupled"with  a collapse of the whole machinery of in-'  ternal ^transportation. _" The menace-to  tlie ���������������������������"community j.was.7 therefore," in~: a  sense -greater .than ��������������������������� any.-to'.bc "foared  from a^ ;disaster at'sea.- It brought  about," or rather^.threatened to bring  about, a state of things.that "an enemy  could only have 'produced.if he-had'defeated-the. British fleet, bloekaded the  island, and seized tne -strategic centres  of tho railway system. Nothing in short,  could have given England, in times of  peace, a sharper lesson irrthe perils to  which she is exposed through-her dependence on foreign-, food-stuffs. Nothing could havo made her ponder more  earnestly the whole problem of national  subsistence in time of < war.  But  in  addition   to  the  strikes  two  other   causes   have   operated   to   bring  this problem to the front.    Ono is the  international tension that exists at the  prosont, moment  throughout Europe,  a  tension, chiefly   duo  to   Germany's  resolve    to    exact    compensation  -from  .Fiance   in   return   for   allowing   her  a  free,  or  at any" rate a freer,  hand  in  Morocco, and to thc uncertainty as to  how far she intends to push her resolve.  A   peaceful   solution   of   the   difficulty  may, i  think probably will, be found;  but at tho same time the air is f ull_ of  gloomy    forebodings,   and    no   British"  statesman during tho past two mouths  hits been able to shut out of view the  possibility  that  his   country  might  bo  involved in a European struggle of the  first magnitude.    Thon, again, the Declaration of London in one of its clauses  specifically   dealt   with   the   status   of  food during war-time, aud dealt with it  in a way that has given rise to a tremendous debate.    The last Peace Conference at-The Hague, it may bc-roinem-  borod, adopted a proposal that an international court should be established to  which an appeal from a decision of a  national prize court should lie in cases  affecting   neutral  ships.    To bring the  scheme   into   operation,   Great   Britain  suggested that  a codo of rules should  be   drawn   np  and   invited  ton   of  the  most important powers to a conference  in London to draft them.   The issuo of  their   deliberations   was   the  document  known as the  Declaration   of London,  and Aiticlo 3.T lays down that food corning in neutral ships may be made contraband if destined for the fleets, fortresses, or ports of equipment of a belligerent.    Food hitherto has been treated  in   practice  by  most   European   nations as absolute contraband.    The Declaration of London makes it conditional contraband, ond to that extent Great  Britain would appear to be the gainer.  But tho wording of the Declaration is  The Pill That Leads Them All.���������������������������Pills  are the most portable and compact of  all medicines, and when easy to take  are the most acceptable of preparations. But they must attest their  power to be popular. As Parmelee's  Vegetable Pills are the'most popular of  all pills they must fully, meet all requirements. Accurately compounded  and composed of ingredients proven to  be effective in regulating the digestive  organs, there is no surer medicine to be  bad onyWhere.  so looso that a groat many critics have  vehemently maintained that the gain,  to British interests is altogether illusory and that the country is really  worse off than it was beforo. For thc  past few months, in Parliament ond  tho press and in thoso admirable monthly reviews which aro to-day the most  admirable feature of British journalism,  the pros and cons of the Declaration  have boon almost passionately canvassed, with the result that Great Britain  has rarely boon so stirrod up on the  subject of hor food-supplies in wartime as she is to-day.  At   thc   time   of   the   Crimean   War  Great Britain, with a population of under 30,000,000, had about a nino months'  supply of home-raised  wheat.    To-day,  with   a   population  of  over  45,000,000,  her stock of wheat varies from o. maximum of four months''  supply  (in September) to a minimum of .r'month and  a half's supply  (in August).    Tn addition to this thero is usually afloat  for  the   United   Kingdom   an   amou-ir of  wheat averaging from two to four million quarters, or from three and -a half  to seven weeks' supply. About a fifth  of   this  i.s  always   within   one   week's  sail of a British port.    Even, therefor^,  if war were to break out in England,  when, in view of the incoming harvest,  the" stock is at its lowest, Groat Britain  would have enough wheat to last for at  least eight weeks, and by that time the  September crop would be in.   The Royal Commission, which a few years ago  investigated the whole question, came,  therefore, to the conclusion that Great  Britain in timo of war would continue  to receive enough food to feed her people and i enough" raw material to keep  her manufactories going.   The commissioners  pointed   out that the  bulk  of  British imports of food-stuffs came not  from British possessions, but from foreign countries, and would, therefore, be  carried in neutral vessels; aud aa neutral vessels convoying food to the civil  population of a'belligerent are, by the  Declaration of London, exempted from  capture, there might' seem  to be less  reason than ever, for fearing that Great  Britain  could be starved  into  submission.   Moreover, in the old days'by far  the  greater  proportion   of  Great" Britain V supply of food was derived from  a' single   source,   namely, -the   United  States.     America " used- to   send��������������������������� over  sixty-two per cent,  of-British' imports  of .wheat'and flour. 'Those days Have  gone"and will nevor return." "The'time,  indeed, is not so-voiy far.-,off when the  United -States will.be importing wheat  instead of_exporting.it...and_,whcnithe  home;demand "will have." outrun'the capacities'* of .home'-production:*;  Great  Britain to-day imports, roughly] 100,000,-  000; hundredweight <)f wheat,-.some .42,-.  000,000 of which���������������������������comes'from,tbe British  limpire ..and ',58,000)000 7from   foreign  countries."   Argentina   lieads;,'.the"' list  with'.. 22,000,000; \Russia ,comes rseeond  with, nearly,'20,000,000;. Canada, third  with    19,000,000; . the   United    States  fourth with 17,000,000; and British India fifth with 16,000,000.    The relative  position   varies  slightly  from  year  to  year, and the United States more often  than not finds herself at the bottom of  the list.    But the important/thing to  note is that Great Britain derives;her  wheat to-day from five great and widely  separated sources, and that the danger  or any effective, interference with tbe  supply is thus diminished in proportion.  In the case of flour this safeguard does  not exist, over half of British imports  of flour coming from the United States.  The Koyal Commission, of course, did  not deny that thore would be some interference  with, trade, and .some   captures.   But they maintained that "not  only is there no risk of a total cessation  of our supplies, but no reasonable pro-  -babi 1 i t3'-=of=serioiis=i n terf erence=������������������=-witb=  them,  and   that   even   during  a   maritime war there will be no material diminution in  thoir volume"���������������������������unless,  of  course, Groat Britain utterly loses com-  mand  of  tho  sea   and   her   coasts  arc  blockaded.    Moreover, it   is  not to be  supposed that Great Britain  would be  at thc end of hor resources when tho  minimum period for which her supplies  of wheat and flour might be expected  to last had_expired.__Thc_incvitablc_risc  in   price  would  lead   to 'economies  of  consumption and to the substitution of  such cereals as barley, oats, and maize  for wheat; while the temporary existence of fnmino prices in Great Britain  would automatically load thc ships in a  thousand    harbors    and    direct    their  couise to British ports. "We believe it  to be beyond the power of any naval  force which would bo at the disposal of  any possible combination against us altogether to prevent the importation of  our supplies," while any increase in price  would be a considerable stimulus to in-'  duce shippers abroad to run the necessary risks.   We do not, therefore, apprehend   that   any  situation   is   likely   to  arise in which there would be a risk of  the actual starvation of our population  into submission."  But in spite of the soothing optimism  of the commission the situation to a  dispassionate eye seems almost as perilous as it is extraordinary. Here is a  crowded industrial country where, it is  to be feared, many millions of people  live under conditions of hopeless and  degrading poverty, and oven at the best  of times have a woeful insufficiency of  food. And for three hundrod days in  every year it is absolutely dependent  for    its    daily , bread    upon   .external  sources.   It has to-day only soma 1,800,-  000 acres under wheat; sixty years ago  it   had   over   13,000,000.     It   consumes  32,000,000 quarters of wheat annually;  of this it raises no more than 0,000,000  It  pays  away  to  foreigners  enormous  sums   for   food-stuffs   that   might   and  should be produced within its own boundaries.    Belgium, with a denser {opu-  lation than Great Britain, produces $100  worth   of   food   from   each   cultivable  acre;   Great Britain produces .$20.  lho  figures   for  the   imports  of  food-stuffs  into the United Kingdom are positively  Every year the  people ofl  safe in the bank, aDd theD I'll    marry  you.''  About twij-'raonths later she cuddled  up close to hi/n ou the aofa ono evening and said:  "Robert, dear, have you saved up  that thousand yet?"  ".Why, no,, my  love,"  "not all of it."  "How much havo you  lingT"  "Just $2.35.  dear."  "Oh, well," said the sweet young  thing, aa  she  snuggled a  little  closer,  he    replied,  saved,    dar-  staggeimg.    Every year the  people of I "don't let's wait anv longer, darling. {  the British  Isles pay over $-00,000,000  guess that'll do."  for imported grain and flour; over  $150,000,000 for wool, sheep, and lambs;  ovor $200,000,000 for dead meat; over  $100,000,000 for sugar; ovor $1-20,000,-  000 for butter and oleomargarine; nearly $60,000,000 for tea; some $30,000,000  for animals for food; about $70,000,000  for fruit and hops; some $35,000,000 ior  cheese, and nearly $400,000,000 for eggs.  These items alone amount to over $1,-  200,000,000 paid out annually for imported food-stuffs that are not luxuries,  but the very necessaries of life. And  the safe arrival of these supplies, without which vast masses of the British  people must be plunged into a state of  semi-starvation, depends in war-time  upon a single instrument���������������������������tho, British  navy���������������������������and upon its ability.,to keep the  trade-routes clear. "Was over a people  confronted witb so vital and intricate a  problem as one of'the normal conditions  of national  existence?  ���������������������������While the Royal Commission did not  consider that the food supplies of tho  country  would  be cut  off  or seriously  endangered,  it was  fully alive  to  the  possibility of a panic- rise in the prices  of the staple articles of diet, with its  concomitant   of   wido   distress   and   of  danger "to calmness and self-possession  just when  c. ose qualities would be  of  the greatest importance." "* To minimize the risk of panic and to maintain  as far a- possible a steady level ot price  in time of war became, therefore, the  objects on which the commission finally concentrated.   It dismissed the idea  of instituting national granaries and of  subsidizing   British   farmers   to   koep  their  grain   in ��������������������������� the   rick   for  a  longer  period    than    at    present,'  though    it  thought  that  thore  was  something  to  be  said ��������������������������� for  a   scheme, of  establishing  free-rent  elevators 'in   order*.,to  induce  the stoiage. in ..Great Britain itself, instead "of  in 'the ^producing country' o*.  grain and flour destined for'.British consumption.

It is understood that a large pro  portion of the farmers of the Enderby  district are opposed to municipal incorporation, while those of Mara are  in favor of it. The only objection  given is that it will mean an increase  of taxes. And if they are basing  their figures on what has been in the  past, we are prepared to admit that  it will probably mean an increase.  We are quite sure also, that whether  incorporation comes or not, there will  come an increase in taxes. It is almost certain that the Provincial Government will make a general revision  I of the taxable values of the district,  and an increase is sure to follow.  There is just this difference: Under  municipal incorporation, the increase  would be based upon the actual running expenses of the municipality and  the public improvements done; while  under the Provincial" levy the rate  and valuation will be based upon the  rate and valuation in other unincor-  ated districts.  This, of course, 'is only one phase  of the question. The other phase  does not seem to interest our farmers  though it is    the   most important.  If the district is not to be in a position to deal jointly with the big  developing forces about to enter the  district, it is not to be expected that  the district will receive any moro consideration from the companies, than  if it were situated in the back-woods  and were without representation. As  a district it is in this position so far  as its ability to negotiate a business  proposition is concerned.  It'*is generally conceded ; that the  next year or two will see wonderful  changes in the Okanagan Valley. The  districts that will receive the plums  will 'be those that -are prepared to ask  for them. If as a district we refuse  now to take up the responsibility of  self-government, we need not complain'later when we get the small  end handed to , us. The Provincial  Government is watching things closely. -And it-helps liberally the district  that tries most to help itself. But  scant treatment comes to the district  that cries to be spoon-fed. And this  is not unreasonable. The fledgling  cries"'for the mother bird to feed it,  but the mother bird knows Avhat is  best, and if the fledgling clings to  the nest the mother bird makes it so  warm for it that it is glad to let go  and make a rustle for itself.

In this number the Herald gives some  interesting fact's relative to the rapid  development of the town at the foot  of Okanagan lake. '-'.The '<,otal assessment of Penticton for the year 1906,"  says the Herald, "three years before  the incorporation of the town, was  $270,000. In the first year alter incorporation it had grown to 2MG,387,  in 1910 it amounted to ?845,955, and  this year to $1,980,943. .Vhen the Revision Court finished its sitting, the  assessment 'for the year 1912 had  reached the substantial figure of  $2,997,150, an 'increase of over one  million dollars in one year.',' We  commend these figures to the careful  reading of our farmer friends who are  fighting the proposed incorporation  of the Enderby-Mara district.  "Penticton adopted ringle tax  shortly after her incorporation,"  continues the Herald, "and in this  she followed the excellent example of  Summerland and Kelowna, her sister  towns on the lake, and was even in  advance of Vancouver citizens, who  only instituted single tax in March,  1910. By the adoption of the single  tax principle, Summerland has-reduced her taxation to one per cent.,  although she has installed irrigation,  electric lighting and domestic water  systems. Kelowna has made similar  improvements, while her percentage  of taxation is but slightly more than  Summerland.  "The principle of the single tax is a  very simple one, and rests on the valuation of land alone. Assessment as  made on all lands" of the same quality, at one valuation, apart from improvements,' and' the selling price of  the land is the basis of valuation.  An orchard that has been planted to  fruit trees is not charged up with the  full value of .the land plus the trees  that are upon it."' The cost of planting, and other improvements'is "deducted, an'd "assessment made- on the  remainder. In ��������������������������� the case of unim-',  proved/land of a similar quality, like  values are placed'upon it.- The "same  principle-- applies to ' buildings.';_. In  this' municipality" many;,"ihe-construc  tions have been erected on land,  which, under the general method of  taxation, would, probably, not have  been proceeded with, owing to the  possibility of the improvements being  taxed."  Figures such as these, which, by-the-  way, cover the real question at issue  in the discussion of the subject of incorporation, are deserving of earnest  and unbiased consideration by the  men of this district. They indicate  growth, advancement and enterprise  and are a direct contradiction to the  scare-cry set up to the effect Uiat incorporation has been a bad thing for  these very districts named by the  Herald.  KINDLY APPRECIATI /E  The following communication" was  crowded out last week. We appreciate it and the sincere g.-od will  back of it, for we know it was written with no thought of superficial  prasie of the efforts of anyone, but  with a larger motive and a saner  meaning:  Editor The Enderby Press:  Dear Sir: Permit me, as a citizen  of Enderby, to congratulate The Enderby 'Press on its entry into its  beautiful new quarters.  "It is a fact too often lost sight of  that business and industrial plants  need not, necessarily, be located  among unbeautiful surroundings;' and  you, by your enterprise, are giving  an object-lesson to the community of  the fact that estheticism 's aot incompatible with efficiency, nor beauty  at variance with utility.  "On entering, the doorway of your  building, one cannot help being struck  by the richness of the combined effect of design, coloring and general  arrangement; and the mind is immediately impressed with a sense #f harmony, an atmosphere of quiet concentration, efficiency and achievement.  "There Ms an immense, practical  value in making the surroundings of  our daily-life beautiful-and artistic;  ahd"it- is to. be hoped that (as -the  town, advances and other business  edifices are " erected ' the question-rof  beauty 0(7 design *' and - harmony 70f  color" scheme"'; will "riof be overlooked  by. the-builders.,".- i  ~   ;' 7-~ "-'��������������������������� -' --_���������������������������-  "The Press is always ready with  kind comment and congratulation on  everything noteworthy that is accomplished by our citizens, and as it cannot very well perform this f.fHce for  itself, I nave thought that in all fairness it is incumbent on some of us to  reciprocate on behalf of the community���������������������������hence this, letter. It would  have been too bad to let such an  event in the life of Enderby's newspaper pass without being duly recognized and chronicled.  "With sincere wishes to The Enderby Press for a happy Christmas and  a prosperous New Year, and for all  that goes to make life and effort entirely worth while through all the  years, believe me,  "Yours very truly,  ONE OF THE COMMUNITY.

Z'Fhe constantly-growing craving for  ".dramatic entertainment among the inhabitants of small country towns and  villages in Germany is now to.be appeased in-a way-worthy of imitation  -. in other countries���������������������������namely, by co-operation. " Under the auspices of the ministry of, thc interior groups of small  municipalities'arc being formed in the  various "provinces, each group engaging  to support financially, if necessary, a  stock company of actors who will proceed from village to village during the  winter and .perform popular plays.  Tho idea originated ��������������������������� with the travelling theatre of the Mark of Brandon-  =bnrg,--which-was=.founded=-by^a^private  society interested in popular education.  The expenses of inauguration were  provided by several wealthy patrons  of dramatic art, who also guaranteed  financial support, but tho venture has  proved so successful that these persons now enjoy some small interest on  their capital. ' The high-class nature  of tho performances given may bo  ������������������ gathered from the names of tho authors  whose pieces aro included in tho pro-  ' ~ "gramme."" ITessiug,"" Gorhard" Ha apt-"  mann, IJjorriaon, Molierc, Schiller,  Goethe, Kleii������������������t and llebbel, are all  conctantly in the repertoire, which is  performed by an oxcellent company,  in which there mc no "stars."  Tho government is so impressed by  the value of .his kind of entertainment  that it has organized similar companies in the provinces of Posen and  Silesia, subsidies being provided by tlio  provincial authorities and nil thc towns  of the provinces being visited in rotation.

Bickle's Anti-Consumptive Syrup is  aji unparalleled remedy for colds,  coughs, influenza and diseases of the  itiroat and'lungs. The fame of the medicine vesta upon years of successful  use in eradicating thoso affections, and  in protecting mankind from the fatal  ravages of consumption, and as a neglected cold leads to consumption, one  cannot be too eureful to fight'it in its  canly etages. Bickle's Syrup is the  weapo*), use it.  When Captain Matthew Webb succeeded in mastering the English Channel, in ]875, it was thought that the  i'eat would never be undertaken again  ���������������������������so many were the difficulties then  disclosed. But Thomas William Burgess, who swam across safely from  Dover the other day, not only experienced the same difficulties which Webb  had encountered, but several difficulties  of his own as well. In the first place  Burgess is a Yorkshire blacksmith,  working industriously at his trade with  little or no time for water activities  of any kind, and iu thc second place  ho is a man well over forty years of  age. These wero two very grievous  handicaps, and handicaps which Burgess well overcame. His spurt for  fame lasted over twenty-three hours,  while that of Webb took twenty-one;  but Burgess was buffeted about by a  wild sea and baffling -white-capped  waves, eo that, instead of covering the  official twenty-one miles, he in reality  breasted some sixty odd or more. From  the very start tho wind was bad.  Burgess, however, made no complaint  for a long time, but it was seen that  .he was-having a'bad time. On several  occasions he swallowed water. The  lumpy sea was very tiring to his arm  action, and, most serious of all, his  eyes beeame affected. At the start,  of course, lie had been greased with  lard, and this, combined with hisgreat  powers of endurance, enabled him to  keep quite warm all through the long  hours of the swim. .In addition to  the grease he also wore as protection  against the sea and sun a pair of motor  goggles, and a  rubber bathing:cap.--  Thc loppy water, however, penetrated  the goggles, especially the right glass,  which was ' under, water much more  than the left, and a small pool collected and remained in the eye-piece, giving  Burgess great- trouble. -. In the first  three hours he changed his goggles no  fewer.than four times, but did not seem  to get mueh benefit from the changes.  After swimming for an hour and a  half--Burgess asked for refreshment, and  Mr.' "Watson, the food specialist- on  board, prepared some chocolate���������������������������a beverage which was, used "throughout the  swim. ..While taking-his-drink' Bur-  "gess chatted with the" party,-and told  them of tba,rough time; he ;was haying.     -. -      \        ---���������������������������      ' -..'������������������������������������������������������ '.    "��������������������������� "-'  Every oiie 's spirits twere rather low,  as-the ,wind was blowing- fifteen" miles  an7-hour,������������������or more,"-and���������������������������_the .prospects  of.anything like" a-good.swim were, very  remote.*' -Burgess', eyes ;were"~rather inflamed;-' and. he.8tatod7that7in:all '-his  experience -'he:,'had'-never-suffered.- so  mueh from "the-salt-water.''    ���������������������������������������������./'���������������������������/��������������������������� 7  -In-spite of this facVit was the opin:  ion1-of "everyone- on-board' that-^the  progress made up.to"that.tinio wa9 bet  ter than on any. previous Channel swirn  'Burgess used hiBrleft overarm'stroke  continually ��������������������������� and got'a great deal .of  power from his legs. _ His stroke waB  twenty-four to the minute, and he never  varied this for fifteen hours-or more.   -  About three o'clock a large tramp  steamer, the. P. Stobart/hove in. sight,  steaming up Channel.-1 -The entire party  stood up and signaled her to go behind  the swimmer,-and her captain slowed  down and altered his course. 'When  informed who was in the water he and  his crew shouted a .messageJ of good  wishes. \. . _  ��������������������������� fhe" end of tbe flood tide on which  the swim was started took Burgess  three "milos north of the South Sands  -Head Lightship. ' In three hours he  was six miles off the-land. The lap  was still troubling him. He was slightly sick three times, and after about  three hoursi.swimming Jh_e_had a. serious  "talk" with the pilot regarding thc ad-  visability of remaining in the water.  "A couple more turns of sickness  will finish me," he said.'  Burgess came down Channel- at a  great pace, and the Calais boat, due at  Dover at five o'clock, paesed many  miles eastward of him. nis westward  drift took him as far as the Shakespeare Colliery, situated half-iay between Folkstone and Dover.  "The "weather "was then "improving  rapidly. The swimmor was in better  spirits after six hours than after two,  and, as thc pilot gruffly yelled, "Everything in the garden is lovely."  Jn seven hours it wae a position that  anv Channel swimmer would have en-  viod. Burgess was latisfied, bnt not  elated.  He was fast settling down to the  real business of the swim, and thoso  on board heard.littlo except the swish-  swish of his mighty kick and occasionally a jest about any unfortunate  member of the party who looked n little  sickly.  At eleven o'clock Burgess started ms  night swim in fine Bpirits and finely  placed.  The next flood tide took him one of  the most extraordinary jaunts it has  ever been the fortune of a Channel  swimmer to go. ]t set him right back  toward England und he had to cross the  dreaded Bidge Bank, where he noticed  the chill of tho shallow wator. He  asked for soundings to bo taken and  when informed that there were twenty-  one fathoms he immediately assured his  pilot that he was decidedly nearer England than France.  One of the party, "Jack" Weidman,  dived in and accompanied Burgess from  nine o 'clock until twelve-thirty, and his  presence was much appreciated by Burgess, who, we are told, "ate, drank,  and swam the night away."  At dawn, about 4:30 o'clock, the first  beaiings of the day were taken. Grisnez bore southwest by south and Calais  ojistsoutheast. tbe nearest land, Sangatte, was only three miles distant. The  fog hung about all the morning and thc  coast was not visible for a long t=me.  About this time, after eighteen hours'  swimming, Burgess grew a little weak,  lie stated hc was all right physically,  but felt "light-headed." He said he  could see mirages, and summe'd the  whole situation np by saying he had a  "bad fit of the blues and if they boys  didn't sing to him he should chuck ic  shortly." <>  ^he party immediately 'began to sing.  Mr. Watson led off with the "Miserere" from "11 Trovatore."  Burgess asked for tho "Marseillaise," and the entire party sang it  to him for twenty minutes or so without stopping.  An attack of, cramps near the heart  bothered Burgess" until a few miles off  Grisnez..  High tide at Grisnez was at 9:40  o'clock, and the slack water was felt  at 7:40. Thinking he was still many  miles off, Burgess asked for champagne.  When informed he was only a mile and  a half off the shore he brightened up  very much, and went away again with  the-word, "No champagne then."  - Mr. Watson gave him a lozenge and  some essence of peppermint", whieh  seemed to ease him in his pain, and he  went on again steadily. -  Captain Pearson sang out: "If you  can stick it a little longer, 'Bill,' you  won't be troubled with this job.again."  To which Burgess answered: "Oh,  we'll settle it now."  When Weidman "went in, at 6:30  o'clock, Burgess, noticing he was using  a poor arm 6troke, gave him(a short  lesson in swimming.  About.eight, o'cloak be had another  attack of-stomach cramp, which' pre-"  -ventied his swimmisg his best. . The  situation was then critical. ��������������������������� A decision to alter, the-conr9e_half a, point  east or west meant eueeesBj>r failure.  'Bnrgess summed" up * the -situation  swiftly. ,. He. told-his pilot that rather  than run the rieik "of, being swept,off  short by the tide, as he; was,on a.previous swim, be .would make a,dash for  the point ."of Grisnez. * The "course'was  at t oneo.-altered,__ andvthe.* wisdom ���������������������������.of.

His great pluck was the  only thing that kept "him" going. :The  "Marseillaise" was again trolled-forth  from the boat and as Burgess" slowly  fought his way inch by inch into 'the  bay eatt of Grisnez the 6cene was most  dramatic.  It was a race with the tide, and Burgess won, one might- say, by inches.  He got inside the bay and into slack  water, snd another quarter of an hour's  painful work brought his great task to  a" close.-  The excitement on the boat was intense. The whole of the party took off  their shoes and stockings and eagerly  awaited the word from the skipper that  the water was shallow enough to walk  inr^Burgess'sprinted^the^last^two-hun-  dred yards on his left overarm;- the  stroke that bad given him thc vietory  over the - Channel, exactly ot 9:50  o'clock.

THE  FIRST MAN TO SCALE  THE   MATTEEHOEN     - 7_ J. _ .  After facing a hundred deaths on  mountain peaks in every part of the  globe, it may seem strange that Edward Whympor, the world-renowned  mountain-climber, who died a few days  ago in thc shadow of his loved Mont  Blanc, met death in a perfectly normal,  every-day fashion in his bed. But this  has been really the fate of nearly all  great explorers���������������������������Captain Cook and Sir  John Franklin alone standing out as  two notable oxecptions. And both of  these latter woro comparatively young  men.  "Whymper was well advanced in bis  seventy-second year, and had been ill.  He spoke in Geneva a few days ago as  a man with a premonition of death.  He died at Chamouni among the tall  mountains and glaciers he loved so well.  When Whymper was twenty-five years  of age, in 1865, hc climbed the Matter-  horn after seven fruitless attompts.  Thc peak had been supposed unscalable.  On the way down, Lord Hadow's foot  slipped, and four of the members of  the party when the rope broke fell  thousands of feet to their destruction.  Tho tragedy, and Whymper's graphic  account of it in "Scrambles Among the  Alps," made tho first ascent of tho  Matterhorn the most famous mountain  conquest on rocord. Though in scientific attainments Whymper was not the  equal of several other noted "mountain-  climbing investigators," owing to his  grace of literary style and mastership  of thc art of vivid description he had  no superior in thc matter of imparting  to the general reader his knowledge  and the results of his observations.  Whymper was, moreover, an artist of  considerable talent.   '  A singular fact illustrative of "the  irony of fate and the sareasm of destiny," is that although on the occasion  of his great triumph he narrowly escaped falling 4,000 feet down the sheer  slopes of the mountain, some years later  he fell four feet from a lecture platform  and suffered a broken leg. Previous to  this accident, moreover, he had come  out unscratched from numerous perilous  situations, into which his enthusiasm  for climbing and an almost reckless  spirit of adventure had led him.  Whymper's explorations, expeditions,  and peak scalings were not confined to  the Alps, but extended to Mexico, South  America, Greenland, and other countries. Many of his ventures were undertaken alone, since, bcintr comparatively without money, he could not pay  guides and others to accompany him.  The firnt ascent to a greater height  than 20,000. feet was placed to thc credit of Mr. Whymper when hc reached  the top of Chimborazo in Ecuador,  which had baffled all other travellers.  He made valuable observations on thc  physical effect of high altitudes, and  tor years occupied himself with barometric researches. He came to. America a few years ago, and pointed out  that there are "fifteen Switzerlands  rolled into one" in the Canadian Rockies. - Though be was then at an age  when-most men-prefer the, slippered  ease of the fireside, hc made several  ascents of virgin snow-clad .crests" in  that region.  Tn his seventy-one years of active  life as scientist, artist, and explorer,  Whymper was the evangel of "the.  freedom of the mountaineer." By  practice he illustrated' the precept of  his books and pictures, and his depiction, of the pleasures and rewards of  mountaineering /have led many to fol  low in his footsteps rtarward. or, at  least, to lift thc'iT eyes to the everlasting hills ameng which he lived and  died.  HIGH LIVING IN JAPAN  Every item of every-day life is as  costly in Japan "as in Europe or America, says a Japanese paper. A respectable looking three-Btorqy house can be  rented in London at ������������������30 a year, while  the same money can rent only a wretched cottage in Tokyo. Bread, meat,  milk, electricity, .gas, perhaps with the  exception of egge, nothing is cheaper  in Japan.  It costs far more to run a house in  Tokyo than in London. "Wages and  salaries are lower 'because of misuse of  labor and over-a"buii(lauec of laborers.  What thc Europeans move with the derrick, men and women carry on their  shoulders; mi necessarily a great number  of them must be jiaifl inr.       o  THE DEADLY BLUE LIGHT  ��������������������������� Sorpehts, 'earth.worms,-ants,-and hens  arc very sensitive to tno influences of  color.
