The Provincial Gov-  _enimcnt,-l)0-8aid,.stood rcady_to help  those districts which showed an inclination to help themselves, and he  was convinced that so fur ns this  district was concerned, it would get  as much, if not more, from thc Government for roads nnd bridges under  incorporation than has been given in  the past as an unincorporaced district.  Speaking for the City of Enderby,  Mayor Ruttan welcomed the movement, and wished thc promoters success in the work before them. The  Oity had no voice in the question,  yet was in a position to offer any  information on the question of incorporation if such informa'.ijn were  desired.  Mr. F. Hassard followed Mayor  Ruttan, and gave much information  on the question which he hid gained  as a ratepayer in the Spallumcheen  Municipality. He knew for a fact  that the Spallumcheen Municipality  got. more assistance from 7he Provincial Government for trank roads  and. bridges than the uninc vporated  district of Enderby and Mara aad received for similar purposes. He and  others in his vicinity would gladly  pull out of the Armstrong Municipality and join   the Municipality pro-  Mr. Ruttan  argued that while- the  no  =Jrhere-is=a=-gre'at=shortage-of-roilk  For the-past two months the trial jthroughout thb yalley.

Mr. Jas. Johnson and Mr. McKay  followed with argument along the  same line, and urged incorporation.  Mr. Chas. W. Little, of Mara, took  exception to some of the remarks of  the speakers, and urged that before  any move is made for a change it  should be shown wherein the change  was to benefit the district. He took  the figures of Mara school district as  an-example, and ��������������������������� showed tbat while  the total amount. of taxes collected  in that district reached only $1,232,  he, as road' superintendent had alone  expended $3,000 the past season in  road and bridge work. He did not  wish to oppose incorporation if it  were generally deemed the be^t thing.  However he knew of some people living in one incorporated rural municipality who were not satisfied and  would gladly move out. He knew,  too, that the Kelowna rural district  was not incorporated, and there were  men there who were hoping that it  never would be incorporated.

The peculiar thing was the way 'at  Barbie troatcd him. She camo down  to the cook shack soon after he landed,  with a lot of .labo?.' old clothes an' a  pair of boots, 'causo anything in distress got to her heart by the shortest  cut. -She came Jopin' along with  about fifteen dogs, wliistlin' an' Inun-  min' an' sort o' dancin' up iu the air  like a young angel; but thc minute she  saw him she sobered up, an' after he  had thanked hor, which he did iii book  Jaugwidge, she simply pulled down the  blinds an' locked tho door." 'Tt was  mighty curious an' set us all to talk-  in', 'cause she treated us fellers just  as friendly as thc rest of the stock;  but Dick made a bad"impression right  at the start, an' we kept our eyes on  him for the first crooked move.  , He was a restless feller, was Dick,  alius askin' quostious about breeds an.'

'"Consider an oxamplo that, can be  seen almost any evening; that of the  street-lamp lighter, Lamps havo been  used in the streets for many generations. Thousands of men and boys  have been employed as lamp lighters,  and, according to the ideas of m'auy,  the work of lighting tho lamps must  bo efticiont. Here is the process of  lamp lighting, as observed in one of  the largest cities in the United States  recently.  "Considering from pole to pole tho  operations were as follows:  "Place the ladder on shoulder, walk  to next polo, place ladder against pole,  climb up six (6) steps, turn on gas, got  match from pocket, strike match, light  lamp, climb down six ((5) steps.  "The man waB working desperately  hard, and certainly no one could ask  him to work harder, yet all the hard  part of his work was unnecessary. The  man could light three times as many  lamps with far less exertion if hc was  relieved of the burden of carrying and  climbing the ladder. The solution of  this problem is so simple that it: haruiy  seems necessary to say: 'Give "the man  a gasoline torch.' As this is a city  job, it may not be considored desirable,  to reduce the number of men employed.  In that case, why not make the work  easier, employ the same number of men,  light the lamps in a much shorter timo,  and save gas? The saving in matches  will pay for the gaaoliuc.  "Another job, which is probably tho  oldest of wliich wo havo an authentic  record, is tbat, of shoveling dirt, yet  lho efficiency of this operation is usually extremely low. Time studies made  on gangs of sho voters in various places  have revealed efficiencies of 12 to 25  por cent. The highest ever observed  was ,'!S por coot,, arid that was an isolated case.  "The work of shoveling dirt from  piles in the street to a cstrt, as observed  in thc same city as thc lamp lightiug,  was as follows:  "The horse drawing the cart, who  proceeds and - stops at, command," was  stopped with his head opposite the pile  to he' picked up. Man lifts shovel of  dirt, turns around, walks three (3)  steps, throws dirt over high "front into  cart, turns back/walks throe (JV) stops,  lifts anothor shovelful of dirt, etc. Tho  piles contained, on the average, four  shovelfuls of dirt.-" --  ."In this case, as iu'many.others, the  worldngman vvas working very . hard,-  but at low efficiency. - With far less exertion he could perf orm much ' more  work. The walking-, turning,aud thc  high lift of "the" dirt wore "all unnecessary and could easily, be,"-eliminated."  In addition, to this,'the shovel was of  an improper shape for. thc work, and  tho handle was'too. short.  _."'Inefficiencies .similar to these can  be' observed almost anywhere at "any  time. The application of scientific  management in, all such csises will not  only work easier, but will euablo the  woi'kmon'" to increase their carning-  power. (-j^ion will not, ' work themselves  out of a job,' because thoy arc. able to  increase their production capacity. Fortunately, history shows lhat the amount  of work to be done has constantly kept  ahead of the labor-saving devices, arid  there is evory reason to believe that it  will continue to do so."  stood up an' bowed an' holt out the  book an' stammered, an' sill 'n ail. it  was* painful to watch 'em.

Critics who  complain Ihsit workmen sire being  "speeded" too much, that, work is  inside too mechanical, and that individuality i>- lost sight of, aro silonccd  by pointing out thai faster work under  the new rub's requires- less offort than  thc slower used to do, that increased  ability brings now interest, and that,  individuality has u widened scope in-  stoad of a nurrowor field. One of these  men, (,'. J. Morrison, contribute? to The  American Machinist, au example of  how some of the most familiar kinds  of toil may be lightened and made more,  effective in  simple  ways.    He writes:  "Th proposition to increase the output, of a plant, by the introduction of  scientific management is often met by  the objections that the superintendent  arid foreman have been in the business  many yoars, know all about il, and that  the workmen are working so hard that  the management would not sisk them to  work'harder. "As ii general ���������������������������proposition,  the-men are not asked to work harder,  but to work more efficiently. To illustrate the point; consider some very  familiar examples.  "In the recent boat race at Bough-  kcepsie ������������������'o losing Columbia crow, to  ail appearances, worked harder than the  winning Cornelians. One Columbia oarsman collapsed, and the others wore 'all  CHOKEFUL CHINA  That, in simplest fiuglish, i.s the gist  of-a paper by Professor-E. A. Ross in  the Century on the struggle for exist-.  oncc~ in China. The writer says that  in two-thirds of China a 'traveller can  find no  room on which to pitch a tent:  "'He will .find no roadside, no commons, no waste laud,' no pasture, no  groves  or  on-diards.  not   eyeri_a  do_oi__.  yard of a cow-pen. Save the threshing-  floor, every outdoor spot fit to spread  a blanket on is growing something.  But. if he will pay, he may pitch his  tent on a submergod rice-field, iu the  midst of si bean patch, or among the  hills ot HW<'ct potatoes."  China is I'ultivated like a garden, in  thnt every lump is broken up, every  weed i^ destroyed, and every plant is  tended like a baby. But tliere are no  vision*.-of bwiuty nrid-delight;- -    "In county after county you will not  see siltogctlier a rood of land reserved  for recreation ur pleasure���������������������������no village  greou, no lawn,., no flower-beds or ornamental shrubbery, no parks, mid very  fow shade trees."  Ouly aii agriculture of incredible  painstaking would have escaped exit a list ing ihe fertility of the soil ages  "go.  Kvery cesspool is drained, the night-  .-ojI of all towns is carefully taken on  the land:  "No natural resource is too iri/liug  to be turned to account by the. looming  population. The sea is raked and  strained for ediblo plunder. Sonweod  and kelp have a place in the larder.  Great quantities of shell-fish, no bigger  than one's fingo.r-uail, tiro opened and  made to yield si food that finds ita way  far inland. The fungus that springs  up in thc grass after a rain is eateu.  Fried sweet potato vines *'-.:r!;is-h the  poor mart'* 'able, 'fhe mndsiile, ditches  are baled out for the sake of fishes no  longer Mian one's finger. Great panniers of straw berries, half of them still  green, are collected in the mountain  ravines and offered in the markets. No  weerl or stalk escapes the bamboo rake  of tbo autumnal fuol-gnthercr. The  grass tufts'on the rough slopes are dug  up by the roots. The sickle reaps the  grain close to tho ground, for straw  and chaff are neodod to burn under the  rice kettle. The loaves of the trcea are  a crop to be carefully gathered. One  never sees a rotting stump or a massy  log."  , Chinese  cookery is one of the most  toothsome cookeries in the world; but  everything is grist that comes, to  tho  mill of tha .popular digestrou:  "The. silkworms arc eaten after the  cocoon has beon unwound from them.  After their work is doue, horses, don-  koy$;._ mules, ��������������������������� and camels become batcher's moat., The cow or pig that has  died a uatoral death is not disdained.'  In Canton, dressed rats and cats are.  exposed for sale. Our boatman cleaned  and ate thc head, foot, and entrails of  tho fowls used by our cook. Scooting  a possible opening for a tannery, the  Governor of Hong Koig onco sot ou  foot ari^ inquiry us to what, became of  tho skins of the innumerable pigs  slaughtered in the colony. Efc learned  that they were all mado up. at? "marine  delicacy' and sold among tho Chinese.  Careful observers say that four-fifths  of the conversation among common Chinese relates to food." '  ��������������������������� Comfort is as scarce us food. To a  Western world that so rarely allows  the other life to govorn its actions in  this, it may come as a surprise that  this over-population of China is due  to tho universal Chinese belief in the  demands of the spirits of parents and  otner  ancestors:  "For   a  grinding  mass-poverty   that  cannot   be  matched    in   tho   Occident  there   remains but  one  general   cause. -,  namely, tho crowding of population upon the means of subsistence.".  Unless certain rites are performed at '  a man's grave by his mole descendants, '  his spirit and the spirits'of his fathers  will wander for long jn the spirit world,  bc������������������Sil,g rice of other spirits. Therefore a man's first concern is to assure  the succession iii the male lino.  Before his son is twenty-one he provides .him with a wife. The������������������ average  ago of Chinese girls at marriage appears  to  bo sixteen or "seventeen:  "The very atmosphere of China is  charged with appreciation of progeny.  From time, immemorial the things considered most worth while have been  posterity, learning, and riehos, in the  order named."  As a result, the mortality among infants is well-nigh incrediblo, amounting  to ninety per ce������������������t.

The plain littlo circlet of ('old 011 her third finger has worn thin and smooth in  tne yearn of faithful s rvice of loving, capable hands, but  there isn't a dent or dull sp t to dim the golden halo of her  domestic happiness. She has made n -usiness ot b.ing mar-  Mod. She is a specialist. She is a success. By that term  of many interpretations, I don't, mean what pious folk are  wont to call "worldly" success. Thc successful married  woman's home is a modest oue, her little establishment  boosts of but ono maid.Jicr pretty hats aro sometimes made  over" ones, and whence successful married woman e husband turns at, the old elm at. the gate to wave a goodbye  toward a certain breakfast-room window (and he a ways  does it-mark that) .he swings into thc 8.10 cor and hangs  to a strap with the rest of us, instead ot gliding smoothly-  away in his motor car at 9.30. _,_.������������������������������������������������������_.������������������  This particular morning she was engaged in that bit 01  househoia^rontine which figures in the weekly bulletin as  "cleaning the silver."

But  Dame Fashion has decreed that feathers shall be worn;  regardless of how they are secured, they have been worn,  and a study of thc following figures will give some idea of  the effects thereby produced on thc colonies of herons and  egrets. Within the last twenty years the snowy heron has  practically disappeared from China, where it was once so  plentiful. Twenty years ago there was in thc region about  Charleston, S.C, at least 3,000,000 of these birds; today less  than 100 remain. There is but one small colony of the  American egret left in this country, and that one is on tho  coast of South Carolina. This colony was fired into last  year, and again this yesir, so that now less than twenty  birds remain. It will be but a few years, anle'ss some drastic  measures are taken, before the history of this bird will be  the same as that, of thc passenger pigeon."  > * ������������������  The sharp autumn evenings arc here, when the chafing-  dish is in requisition again. If you are sufficiently expert  in its possibilities you can almost manage a six-course dinner on one of these indespensablc little affairs, and at any  rate you can make it a useful adjunct of the after-thc-theatre  supper., or to wind up a cosy evening of reading and1 so on  with '''him.'.'

R. ROGERS LUMBER CO., Enderby  RURAL INCORPORATION  - The action taken by thc citizens at  the mass meeting held in K. of P.  Hall last Saturday afternoon on the  question of rural incorporation, is  certain to produce good results. The  question is too large and too complex to be decided in a few hours at  a public meeting, and the appointment of a committee to go into the  matter fully and canvass the district was the ouly progress noped for  even by ' the most sanguine. The  question of incorporation has never  been entered into by the great majority of our farmers. They see in  it an increase of taxes, therefore it  is opposed by those who 'desire to  keep their taxes down, no matter  how much they retard the grvnvch of  the district vand .keep down the value  of their own property. To bring all  to .see the value of incorporation will  require some time for discussion and  enlightenment. There is .ot thc  shadow of a doubt that this uistrict  will have to incorporate before it. can  reach the stage of development we all  have in mind .for it. If not now,  then a year or so later. Incorporation is the first step" to community  development, and if the first step,  then the longer it is delayed, the  slower will be the coming of that  period of prosperity which all are  anticipating. This is the view taken  by the majority of our ranchers, and  this seemed to be the feeling of the  meeting of Saturday -afternoon.  The committe appointed to go into  the' matter   thoroughly are i:ien who  can, be relied    on   to'   follow up any  obscure   point   and   make    it clear.  When they report   their findings and  the result of their canvass.-of the "district, we shall know^exactly. vhat.to  expect of   any   further    move in the  matter.   No objection1 has been raised  to rural incorporation  chat   ,/as not  raised six years   or   more ago when  city   incorporation   was proposed  in  Enderby."    Had Enderby continued to  sit in the sump of stagnation and refused to take up the' responsibility of  self-government,  we would to-day be  the, little   hamlet   it then was. -But  Enderby's   citizens   .were big euough  to see beyond the past, and ventured  in the larger sphere.     The results are  too well known- and the advantages  too apparent to   need any comment.  It has cost us something for our improvements,  but   we have got something   worth   while.      Arid    the improvements'   here    made    have added  value to every   acre of farm land in  the Enderby district:     If this-can be  true of the development of the town,  how   much    greater   will    be the in-  ^rWsTlviren  thedistricT is  incorpor-  ated independent    of   the city and is  at work developing   its resources by  directing the   expenditure of its own  revenue through its duly elected representatives?

What the News says with special  emphasis to Vernon applies with equal  force and weight to the City of Enderby. We are soon to be called upon to name the council for j12. It  is important that some earnest effort  and thought be put to it.- The past  year, under the quiet, unassuming but  business   administration    of     Mayor  was sent to Mr. L.. Norris, Government Agent at Vernon, for information covering the point. I.i reply,  Mr. Norris says:  "I had an opportunity tto submit  the matter to Mr. F. Armstrong, the  Chief Water Commissioner, to-day,  and" he' informed - me that it is not  necessary to make any application in  Ruttan, the city has made marvelous J respect of   any   water record on any  strides. In one short year we have  stepped out of villiage by-.vays into  macadamized streets and cement sidewalks. The advance has been rapid,  ct was an important undertaking, but  Mayor Ruttan and his Aldermen have  proved themselves equal to it. That  they have the support of every citizen in the policy inaugurated, we are  convinced, and there-is no doubt but  that the importance of the work is  fully appreciated.  The year 1912 will require a man of  Mr. Ruttan's    courage   and force at  the head of  probability  stream that is not advertised in the.  list now running in your paper. Later.  on the streams in the Railway Belt  will be advertised in a .similar manner and then it will be necessary for  the record holders to make application in respect of same. - ...  "It was not the intention,to advertise any of the streams in the  Railway Belt in the list now running  in the papers, but some of the  streams were found to be partly in  the Railway   Belt   and partly'out of  it. On all streams now advertised  affairs. . He will in all J application should be made at once,  be   called upon ;o .enter |0n a.   form', 'which,!, will be furnished  into most important negotiations  with'the promoting, companies of the  railroads, which are headed "this way,  and it will be up to him to guard the  interests of the city. , Mr. Ruttan's  past experience in dealing with large  corporations places him in a position  to handle any , such negotiations in  the interest of Enderby. He is the  man we should have. And then there  is the matter of Aldermen. , Let us  not forget that we have but. a month  tc   get'' this-  matter   settled.  from this office,- Form No. ^.9.  RAILWAY BELT WATER.RECORDS  No little confusion has resulted in  the minds of holders of water<.recortls  in the railway belt-as to whether it  were necessary for them to make application under the. present Watei  Act in the. same manner as holders  of- records outside the railway belt  are called upon to do.

THE   MUNICIPAL   ELECTION  _ .D.,??.UK.si.Ilfe'.. the. question, of next  year's city council, the Vernon News  says: "Never in the history uf Vernon has there been such an urgent  need" for a good strong administrative  body as there is to-day. Thc far-  reaching activities of railroad corporations as they affect this community  create a problem that requires-an astute mind and experienced .-xecutor  in solving. The best interests of the  city must be well protected; and the  policy looking to protection and conservation must be of such character  as not to embarrass the position of  the railroad but rather to lend encouragement  and   co-operation."  The News then recites the various  railway and tramline possibilities of  the next year or two, and their relative importance to the ind'.\.trial,  commercial and social development  of thc district, and concludes: "The  critical period of the new situation  will be reached, during the nsuing  year, and for that reason alone it  devolves upon the citizens of Vernon  to use the best thought and effort in  [the selection of an administrative  body."

"We know where she is," said the  Pi evident, "and if we ever want her.  jt. will be comfoiting to know she is so  close to us."  Nothing more would have been done  in the matter but for the fact that thc  British Admiralty decided that tbe  wreck was a. danger to shipping, and  issued orders forthwith for the place  where it lay to be buoyed.  The   Ijiherian   government   demurred  on account of expense, button pressure  being  applied   (17 suspect  the  captain  . of Hie Majesty.'s ship Dwarf, who was  a   man   with   a  bitter   tongue),   they  -'agreed, and  a  bell-buoy was  anchored  '"' to the submerged steamer. -  '      "''  -:-- It,made a-nice rowdy clanging noise,  did that bell.''and the people of fNIon-  Vvovia " felt' they    were    getting - their  money's worth.

The second day after the boll was  "jn place Monrovia awoke to find a complete silence reigning in the bay, and  that in spite of a heavy swell. Tho  bell was still, and two ex-admirals who  were selling fish on the foreshore borrowed a boat and rowed out to invest!-  'gate. The explanation was1 simple���������������������������  the bell had been stolen.  "Now!" said the President of the  Liberiaii Republic, in despair, "May  Beekebud. who is the father and author  of all sin. descend upon these thieving  Kroomen!''  Another bell was attached: the same  night it was stolen. Vet. another bell  was put, to the buoy, and a boatload  _oJ7_admirals kept, watch. Throughout  the night they sat, rising ax/rfa 1 \ira<r  with tho swell, and the  "clang-jangle-clong" was  their  ears.    AH  night   it  " Wanted on a wanant issued by 11.

A   description   followed.  ^aridois put the document away with  niitluT such notices--they weie uot infrequent in their occiu reuce���������������������������and gave  hi" mind to the eternal problem of the  Ochori.  .Vow, as ever, the Ochori people were  in .ad trouble. Then: is no other tribe  tne whole of Africa that is as defenseless as the poor Ochori. The Pin-  goes, slaves as they arc by name and  tradition, were a.s ferocious as the Masai, compared with the Ochori.  Sanders was a little impatient, and  the deputation of three who had journeyed down to headquarters to lay the  grievances of the people before him  found   him   unsympathetic.  lie interviewed them on his veranda.  ���������������������������'Master, 710. man loaves us in  peace," said one. "Isisi folk, Akasa-  va folk, N'Gombi people from far-away  countries, they come demanding this  and that, and we give, being afraid.''  "Afraid of what?" asked Sanders,  wearily.  "We fear death and pain, also burning,  and  thc  taking  of   our  women,"  lid the other.  ��������������������������� 'Who is chief  Ol  you?'-' asked S'an-  der.-:  TuTTl"  monotonous  music in  sounded, but  in thc early morning at, thc dark hour  before tin* sun comes up, it seemed that  the bell, still tolling, grew fainter and  fainter. c  "Brothois." said an admiral. 7 wo  are drifting away  from   the bell."  But thc explanation was that the'boll  had drifted away, from .thetn, for. tired  of half measures, the Kroomen hud  come iu and taken the bell. buoy, and  all, and to this day there is no mark  to show where a sometime man-of-war  rots in the harbor of Monrovia.  Tie ingenious *<"'iil who planned and  r-arried out this theft was one P.osnmbo.  who had three wives one of whom,  being by birth (Jongolaise and uiitnist-  worthr.'informed the police, and with  Homt 'ceremony Bosambo way arrested  and tried at the Supreme. Court, where  he was found guilty of "theft and  high-treason," and sentenced to ten  vears' penal servitude.  Thev took Bosambo back to prison,  and Bosambo inlervied the black jailor.  "Mv   friend."  he  ���������������������������'aid.   "I   have  a  big ju-ju in  the forest, and  if yon  do  release  ine at  once you  and  your  not  wife, shall  die  in  great toiment."

"I know a place where tliere is much  silver hidden," said Bosambo, with  promptitude: "vou and Y will go'to  tins   place,  and   we   shall   be   rich. ���������������������������  " If vou knew where there was silver,  whv did vou steal bells, which arc of  bra's* and of no particular value?';  asked this unimaginative guard.  "I see that you .havo a heart of  stone," said Bosambo, and went away  to the forest settlement to chop down  trees for the good of the Plate.     ���������������������������  Four months after this, _Sanders,  Chief Commissioner for the Tsisi, J.koh,  and Akasava countries, received inter  alia a communication of a stereotyped  description:  "To whom  it   may concern:  wilfully ignorant.  "I am Chief. Lord," said an elderly  man  clad  in   a   leopard   skin.  "Go back to your people, Chief, if.  indeed, chief you are, and not some old  woman without shame; go back and  beai with you a fetich���������������������������a most wonderful fetich���������������������������which shall be, as me,  watching your interests and protecting  you. This fetich you shall plant on the  edge of your village that faces tho sun  at noon" You shall mark the place  where it shall be planted, and at midnight, with -proper ceremony and the  sacrifice of a young goat, you shall set  my fetich in its place. And. after that  whosoever Jll-T,reats or robs you shall  do^so nt some risk."       l  Sanders said this very solomnly, and  the men of the deputation were duly  impressed. More impressed were they  when, before starting_on their homeward journey, Sanders placed in their  hands a stout pole to the end of which  was-attached a flat board inscribed  with certain marks.  They carried their trophy six days'  journey through thc forest, then four  days' journey by canoe along the Little  River, until they-came to Ochori. There,  by the light of the moon, with the  sacrifice oi two goats (to make sure),  the pole was planted so that the board  inscribed with mystic characters would  faee the sun at noon."- -   ���������������������������  News travels fast in tho back lands,  and it came to the villages throughout  the Isisi and the Akasava country that  the Oehoris were particularly protected  by white magic. Protected they always had been, and many men had  died at the white man's hand because  the temptation to kill the Ochori folk  had proved irresistible.  "1 do not believe that Sandi has  done this thing," said the Chief of the  Akasava, a new chief, vice one recently  hanged by the Isisi River. "Let us  go across the river and see with our  own eyes, and if they have lied we will  bent them with sticks���������������������������though let no  man kill, because of Sandi and his  cruelty.  So across the river they went and  marched until they came within sight  of the Ochori city, and the Ochori people, heaving that the Akasava people  were coming, ran away into the woods  ancl hid���������������������������according to their custom.  The hospitable Ochori received him  kindly, fed him with sweet manioc and  sugar-cane, and told him about Sandi's  magic. After he had eaten, Bosambo  walked ..down to the post and read the  inscription,  "Trespassers   Beware."  lie was mildly amused, but strolled  back   again,   thinking   deeply.  "This magic." hc paid to the chief,  ''is good magic. I know because 1  have white man's blood in my veins."  In suppoit of this statement he proceeded to libel a poifoetly innocently  Biitish official at S'ierra Leone.  Thc Ochoii wete impressed. They  pou rod forth the story of their perse-  cutinii:'���������������������������a story which began in remote  ages, when Tiganobeni, lhe great king,  came down .from fhe north and wasted  the country as far south as the Isisi.  Bosambo listened���������������������������it took two nights  and the greater part of a day to tell  the. story." because the official story teller of the Ochori had only one method  of telling���������������������������and wheu it was finished  Bosambo said  to himself:  "This is ihe people 1 have long  sought���������������������������T will sta}'. liere."  Aloud, he asked:  "How   often    does   Sandi   come   to  said  and  full,  the  Thr Altasava advanced until they  camo to the pole stuck in the ground  and thc board with the devil marks.  Boforo this they stood in silence and  in awe, and, having made obeisance to  it, and sacrificed a chicken (which was  the propelty of tlie Ochori). they turned back.  AftcT thi., came a party from Isisi,  aud they must needs come through the  Akasava  country,  -They-brought- pie.se.nt.i with..them,  and lodged with the Akasava for one  night.  "What stoiy is this of the Ochori?"  asked thc Isisi chief in command: so  the chief of the Akasava told him.  "You may save yourself the journey,  I'or wo have seen it."  "That," said the Isisi chief, "I will  believe wheu I have seen."  "That is bad talk." said the Akasava people who were gathered at the  palaver; "these dogs of Nisi call us  liars."  Nevertheless there was no bloodshed,  and in the morning thc Isisi went on  their way.  Tho Ochori saw them coming, and hid  in the woods, but the precaution was  unnecessary, for thc Tsisi departed as  they came.  Other folk made a pilgrimage to the  Ochori���������������������������-N'Combi. Bokeli, and the little people of the forest, who were so  shy that they camo at night���������������������������and the  Ochori people began to rise to a sense  of their importance.  Then Bosambo, a ICrooman and an ad-  vcntiner at large, appeared on the  cootie, having crossed eight hundred  miles of wild land in the earnest hope  that time would dull the memoinry of  the Libcrian government, and, incidentally, bring him to a land of milk and  honey.  Now Bosambo had in his life been  many things. He had been steward  on an Elder Dempster boat; he had  been, a scholar at a. Mission school; he  was the proud possessor of a bound  copy of tho Bive.s of the Saints, a reward for industry; and among his accomplishments was a knowledge of English.  you','"  "Once   every   year.   Master,"  the chief, "on the  twelfth intion,  a little after."  "When came he last?"  "When this present moon is at  thiee moons since���������������������������lie comes after  big rains."  "Then," said Bosambo again to-himself, "for nine months 1 am safe;"  They built him a hut, and planted  i'or hi in a banana grove, and gave him  seed. Then he demanded for wife the  daughter of the chief, aud, although hc  offered nothing in payment, she came  to him. That a stranger lived in the  chief village of the Ochori was remarked by other tribes, for news of this kind  spreads, but, since he was married, and  into the chief's family at that, it was  accepted that the man must, be of the  Ochori folk, and such was the story  that came to headquarter?.  Then the chief o'f the Ochori died.  He died suddenly iu some pain, but such  deaths are common, and his son ruled  in his place. The son died after the  briefest reign, and Bosambo called the  people together���������������������������the elders, the" wise  men, and the bead-men of the country.  "It appears,", he said, "that the  many gods of the Ochori are displeased  with you, and it has been revealed to  me jn a dream that I shall be chief of  the Ochori. Therefore, oh Chiefs, and  Wise men. and Head-men. bow before  me as is the custom, and Y will make  you a great people."  ft is characteristic of the Ochori that  no man said "Nay" to him,-' even  though in the assembly were three men  who by custom might claim the chieftainship.-  Sanders heard of th<������������������'new chief, and  was pir/.zled." ' *���������������������������- "- . 7 - _" '-_-."  ��������������������������� "Etabo?" he repeated���������������������������that ^was  how-Bosambo called himself; "I do  not remei������������������ber the man, yet if he can  put backbone into^ the>peoplc' I do not  care who lie js," :  Backbone or cunning,- or -both, Bo-'  sambo  certainly  installed.  "lie has many ' strange, practices,"  reported   a  ,'c a mind fo hang you, Bosnm-  Every   day  many  native agent to Sanders  he assembles the men of  the village and causes them to walk  past a pelebi (table'?) on- which are  many eggs. And it is his command  that' each man as ho passes shall-take  an egg so swiftly that no eye may see  him take it. Aud if the man bungle  or break the egg, or be slow, this new  chief puts shame upon him, -whipping  him."  "It, is a game," said Sanders; but  for the life of him hc could not see  what game it was. .Report after report  reached him of the new chief's madness. Sometimes he-would take the unfortunate Ochori out by night, teaching  them such things as they had never  known before. Thus he instructed  them in what manner they might seize  a goat, so that the goat could not cry.  Also how to eiawl on their belliesjneb  by inch so tnat tney made "uo'Touncr  or sign. All these things the Ochori  did,   groaning   aloud   at   tbe   injustice  L   can   understand  and the labor of it.  "I'm dashed if  it," said Sanders, knitting his brows,  when the last report came in. With anybody but the Ochcri this would mean  war���������������������������-but tho Ochori!"  Notwithstanding his contempt for the  lighting qualities iie kept his police  Floutsns icady. .__   Bnt. there was no war. Instead, there  came complaint from the Akasava that  "many leopards  were  in  the woods."  Leopards will keep, thought Sandois,  and, anyway, the Akasava, were good  enough "landers to settle that palaver  without outside help. The next report  was alarming. In two weeks those  leopards had' earned off threescore of  goats, twenty bags of salt, aud much  ivory.  Leopards eat goats; there might; conceivably, be fastidious leopards that  cannot eat goats without salt; but n  leopard does not take ivory tusks even  to pick his teeth with. So Sanders  made haste to journey up thc river,  because little things were considerable  in a country where people strain at  gnats and swallow whole caravans.    ,    .  "Lord, it is true." said tho chief of  the Akasava. with some emotion;  "these goats disappear night by night,  though we watch them, also the salt  and ivory, because those we did not  watch."  "But no leopards could do these  things." said Sanders, irritably; "these  are thieves."  The chief's gesture was comprehensive.  "Who eould thieve?" he said.  N'Gombi   people  live   very   far  also  the  Isisi.    The  Ochori   are  and, moreover, afraid,"  Then Sanders remembered the egg  game and the midnight manocuvers of  the Ochori. ...  "1. will call on this new chiof,' he  said, and crossed tho river that day.  Sending a messenger to herald his  coming, he waited two miles out of the  city, ano the councilors and  wise men  "The  away,  fools,  came out to him, wilh offerings oi' fish  and fruit.  "Where is your chief," he asked.  "Lord, he is ill," they said, gravely.  "This day there camo to him a feeling  of sickness, and he fell down "moaning.  We have carried him to his but."... ���������������������������  Sanders nodded.  "I   will  see him," he said, gravely.  They led him to the door of the  chief's hut, and Sanders went in. It  was very dark, and in the darkest corner lay a prostrate man. Sanders bent  over hirn, touched his pulse Tightly, felt  gingerly for the swelling on the neck  behind the ears for a sign of sleeping  sickness. No symptom could he find,  but on the bare shoulder, as his lingers  passed over the man's tlosh. he felt a  scar of singular regularity; then he  found another, ami traced thoir direc  tion.  "I thought so,'J said Sanders, and  gave the moaning man a vigorous kick.  "Come out into the light, Bosambo  of .Monrovia," he said, and Bosambo  rose obedieutly and followed the commissioner into the light.  They stood looking at each other foi  several minutes; then Sanders, speaking in the dialect of the Papper Coast,  said:  "L h  bo."  "That is as your Excellency wishes,"  said Bosambo.  Sanders said nothing, tapping his  boot with his walking-stick and gazing  thoughtfully down-ward.  "Having- made thieves, could  make men of'these people?" he  after a while.  "I  think they could fight, for  are puffed with pride because they have  robbed the Akasava," said Bosambo.  Sanders bit the end of his stick like  a man in doubt.  '"There shall be neither theft 1101  murder," he said. "No more chiefs  nor chiefs' sons shall die suddenly,"  he added, significently.  "Master, it shall be as you desire."  "As I'or thc goats you have stolen,  them you may keep, and the teeth  (ivory), and the salt also, for, if you  hand them back to the Akasava, yon  will fill their stomachs with rage, and  that would mean war."  Bosambo nodded slowly.  "Then you shall remain  you are a clever man, and  needs such as jTou.    But if-  " Master, by the fat of my heart,  I  will  do  as  you  wish," said  Bosambo,  I  have  ahvays  desired  to  be  a  under the British���������������������������"      -  Sanders was halfway back to  quarters before he-, missed his  glasses, and wondered where ho.  room towels, those m\?K.

', i  THE FLYING SQUIRBBL  The different species of 6mall mammals known as flying squirrels have  but, one common feature���������������������������the membrane which unites, their claws and  acts as parachute. _ In the last century the best known of the species  wero abundant in northern Europe.  Scandinavia, and Lapland. Thoy arc  seen now in Siberia, two species are,,  found "in".'J������������������p!ui~suid-iii'-Uie-north~of~-  America, and another species abounds  in thc south cf China and in India.  The Australian flying squirrel is a  night rover and an cater of insects,  birds1 eggs, and baybcrriew. It lian  whitish fur tinged with red, live long,  flngcr-like claws, and a buslij tail, with  a tip that serves as a rudder when  the squirrel flics, by means of which it  hangs on trees whoso smooth, slippery  bark makes thom hard for "hunters U-  climb. Thc Jittle animal ie very difficult to dislodge, and, as he nevor descends to thc ground, the natives of the  countries inhabited by him believe that  be lives without drinking. After the  sun sets his cry is heard, and he is  seen springing from tree-top to tree-  top,- at play or iu quest of prey.

Busy, 2.09 3-4, Miss Elyria, 2.10 1-4, ami  Governor Francis, 2.0S 1-4. This event,  whieh is now one, of the principal fixed  ones of the Italian trotting season, was  first given in 190S, best time, 2.21 3-4,  the track being very muddy. Last  year it was captuied by the French trotter Custer, 3.10 1-2, best time 2.13 1-1.  It will be seen that Codoro's performance was decidedly tho best of any of  these, and that the contest was a brilliant one is shown by the fact that Fred  Loyburn, who was second, himself trotted his heats in 2.11 2-5 and 2.11.

Betwixt farm an'd farm run thc clean,  white roads, with a strip of green grass  oi either side, aud beyond the grass the  hawthorn hedges, tender green in early  spring, foam-white with blossoms in  May, rich with berries in Autumn, silver with hoar-frost in the Chirsi'mas  weather.

Beyond tho 'partition, in thc work-  100m of Miss Gardner's typewriting  agency, the girls had closed thoir machines' for the day. Thoy chatted softly and gaily while thoy adjusted in-  credible hats over miraculous coiffuies.  Prom the lavatory drifted the fuint,  ,    clean  odor of perfumed  soap.  ���������������������������'The name���������������������������-did you say the name  was Airs.

She halted at a place whore tickets  ===to"r^foreign==-travel=7were=aold.-==The  window displayed a huge model of a  - steamship,, swinging lazily, as if at  moorings, on a peacoful sea. Pencils  of warm, yellow light streamed- from  thc port-holes and thc mast, and a  miniaturo moon silvered the little palm-  tree on thc tropical shore.  Emma clasped thc threadbare collar  of her thin jacket around hei throat,  and walked on rapidly. Tho curious  dread deepened in her oyeb.  Finally a cross-town" street" led" her  to Mrs. Franklin Trent's magnificent  new house on the nvonue. Emma, had  never identified it before. The ornate  ' front of the stone mansion, a jumble  of costly carving', wai an architectural  joke; but Emma did not seem to be  amused. Her lips shivered strangely  as she climbed tho broad Bteps.  For the house would have been her  own, if Bhe, in her father's orchard,  twenty yearr* ago, had whispered a  "yes''' instead of a "no" to young  Frank Trent, on the night whon he loft  their Connecticut village to seek his  fortune iu the Western copper-mines.  II  A liveried footman swung the heavy  door, and surveyed Emma Saxon briefly.  ."Other entrance,"  ho grunted.  Emma did not understand. She  blinked doubtfully over tho lackey's  crimson sleeve ut the pillars of the  Roman hall.  "Jf you please, I���������������������������1 have an appointment here at six," said she. aud  .offered Mies Gardner's card.  "Other entrance,"- repeated thc  footman.  But a trim-lady's-maid now appeared from behind a pillar.  "One minute, Mr. Ilibbs," she interposed, scanning thc card. "Madame  expects a���������������������������oh, yes! I will bring her to  madame.    It  will be quicker so."  The maid crossed tho lofty hall, and  Emma followed, with shoulders bent,  as if the luxury of the house oppressed  them like a burdon. Mr. Ilibbs yawned, examining his finger-nails.  Cavernous apartments, mysterious  with rich drapery and dimly lit by hidden  lamps, glowed  to left and  right.  Emma's worn little shoes trod marble  stairs which had been taken out of a  famous Venotian palace. Peering over  the exquisite baluster, she had a vista,  through the priceless picture-gallery, of  the ballroom, with its stately organ.  At a door near the head of the' staircase Emma's guido pressed the concealed knob of an electric annunciator. A  second maid opened the door silently,  placed the card on a silver tray, and  left Emma waiting behind a half-drawn  portiere of rosy silk.  Beyond the curtain was an octagonal  room, paneled in rose du Barry brocude.  The furniture was covered with Gobelin tapestry; and on a couch reclined a  lady whose flowing gown had the color  and sheen of morning cobwebs in a  dewy garden. Another woman, soborly  dressed in brown, sat at'a marquetorie  desk; but Emma looked only at the lady  on-, the couch. Never had she looked  at such a beautiful ereatuie.  "Madame.will receive yon," said tho  maid.. -  "Is that Mrs.-Trent���������������������������-on the sofa?"  gasped Emma. .  "Of course," breathed the .servant,  witb much disdain.  -Emma advanced into .the, room. The  lady raised hor graceful, tawny-haired  head from the heap'of pillows; aud her  voice was kind and musical.  "This is Miss Saxon?"  "My name is Saxon, ma'am. 1 am  from the Gardner agency."  /'Yes,'* said Mrs. 7Treut. "I" shall  need a .secretary, for a few weeks, to  assist Miss Vesper," and she indicated,  with a white, jeweled hand/the woman  at the desk!!  "I  have  always given"satisfaction,  ma'am,   as   a   stenographer  and   typewriter,"  ventured Emma.  , Mrs. Trent's good-humored smile was  vory'vwinning.      "    .     .. , . "  -,"1 am sure of"that,���������������������������but a pen-writer  is what I need," she rejoined quietly.  "My correspondence, I fear, is too.trivial to be typed.

At length she came to the whining  tiacks of the Elevated. The thoroughfare beneath them was a wet and noisome cave. Grimy men and women,  with the dull, submissive eyes of toiling oxen, tlirouged the foul pavements.  J ii- a deafoning, unending procession,  iron wheels of ponderous trucks clanged  Mivugely over the cobbles.  With lips parted expectantly, aud  firm chin pointed upward, Emma hurried ou. like one speeding to a goal.  Even in that hastening crowd her haste  was noticeable. A group in front of  a murky saloon skipped out of her way  with burlesque agility; a joeoee policeman asked her where tne fire was. Emma'a eager smile did not waver, and  the policeman winked at his companion.  ''They never get too old to beat it  to a 'date," lie proclaimed senteutious-  ly.  A blue-coated und blue-bonneted girl  emerged irom the saloon, jingling an  alms-box of the Salvation Army. Emma  tugged a coin from her knotted handkerchief, and dropped hor pittance ia  tho box.  "God .bless you for it!" muttered  the girl.  "Emma did not pause to hear tha  benediction. She. turned- the Vomer  into? a-side street.- ��������������������������� It -was a'street ,of  old brick houses, converted into tenements; beyond, the "distant end of if,  under the lights''of. a 'towering bridge,  was levealed tho sullen curroi.T/of the  river.  The shudowy street would-1 have beei:  quiet had it not beeu for the countless  children; but over sidewalk, cur'j, and  house-steps, they swarmed like frenzied  bees.

The nioisfcure  drawn up from the roots of.plants most  frequently pa.--ses.oif into the air in a  gaseous form; i.e., by transpiration. If  the air is saturated with moisture, aud  if the supply of moisture to the roots  is copious, then liquid drops will be  exuded sometimes in largo quantities.  Molisc'h records a case in which a single  leaf of a species of Colocasia gave off  190 droph per minute. Burgeratein gives  a list of 2-H plantB, belonging to 101  families, in which guttation has been  observed.  This process goes on chiefly at night,  and in cloudy nnd foggy weather;-i.e.,  when the'"relative' humidity of the air  is highest. It is altogether probable  that in the moister parts of the tropics  theio are trees which exhibit this pue-  nomenon in such a degree that the  name "rain-tree" may be fittingly up-  plied to them, [t is, however, certain  that no Mich pioce^t can occur in a  dry climate, and that ,-ne proposal to  plant the rain-tree us a panacea against  drought is entirely chimerical.  A STUPENDOUSWORK  If civilization were civilized it-would  find some way to reward Mr. Dwelly for  a work almost without.parallellin the  history 'of literature. Mr.- Dwelly is  not-a Scotchman'and,-his knowledge of  Gaelic"is"an'7icqiiir'e'd one.'Nevertheless  he has spent twenty-strenuous years of  hi.s life in the compilation of a Gaelic  dictionary containing two million words  and'now issued in three volumes that  are sold i'or the modest, price of $10.  But a statement such ns'.this give but  a faint impression of the magnitude of  the-work. Mr. Dwelly'retired from hia  position*" as a bank clerk twenty years  ago, having saved barely enough to carry him through his intended task.  His only assistant was" his wife and  a few interested correspondents. No  publisher would become responsible for  so unpromising an undertaking, so Mr.  Dwelly bought -type'and "set 'up the  whole vast -work with, his "own hands.  Then he bought a stereotyping apparatus and stereotyped it. Then'.he'bought  a'.printing press arid, printed it.'

The lady examined it with regretful  scrutiny. Emma's handwriting, in fact,  .was the commonplace script, of au old-  fashioned copy-book, devoid" of distinction and'character.  . "I'm so sorry," decided Mrs. Trent  gently; "but really", I feat���������������������������I'm so  sorry to disappoint you!''  "It's only an ordinary' work-a-day  hand, ina'um. And, if you'll excuse  mo, I'ni not disappointed.'-',, .  --"Not disappointed?" murmured-Mrsr  Trent.'' Sho , smiled thoughtfully at  Emma, vaguely impressed by some elusive change in thc bearing aud voice  of this gray, shabby woman. "However, Miss Saxon, I'm genuinely sorry  that you/vc-had this trouble for nothing. L feol sore that you deser.ve help,  und that you woil< well and hard."  "T wozk hard, ma'am, but perhaps  that isn't anything to feel sorrv  about."  For a silent moment each looked  tensely into tho other's reflective,  rather startled face. Tt, was as if a  supernatural power were trying to flash  a message between them. But the golf  was too great; the message was blurred  and indistinct, like the faulty and unreadable call from the crippled sender  of a wireless telegraph machine,  Mrs: Trent sighed, without knowing  why, and nioved"petulantly among'tbe  velvet pillows.  "Aie you going back to the agency  this evening, Miss .Saxon?"  "No, ma'am, I am going���������������������������somewhere  else.''

Thc  leaves of this tree are said'to have the  property of condensing -atmospheric  moisture in large quantities and preci  pitating it in the form of rain. According to one writer, "the "water falls  from'the lea ves" aud oor.es from tlie  truuk.and forms veritable rivers; yvhich  ean be led as irrigating ,canals ,to-any  point desired.

On^thVstrength-of=siinilar^stories^oue  ot the trees to which the'name "rain  tree" has been most often applied, viz.,  Albizzia (or .. [.ithecolobium) Saman,  has lately been exploited unci sold extensively in Australia. The virtues  claimed for it have proved to be alto-  gcthei illusory, although it. is useful as  a fchude-tiec, and is widely plunted for  this purpose in semi-tropical countries.  The legent of the '-rain-tree" or  '[niining-t.rco" ilatesback to the -stor-  ies" "of the Fortunate [sle.% where no  rain-fell from the skies nnd tho soil  was refreshed by the moisture shed by  a tree of the sort described. The early  nuvigntois brought home stories of  similar tree* in the East Indies, in Guinea, Brazil, etc. The Peruvian raiu-  tree appears to have boen brought to  tbe notice of the woild-by thc roports  of a United States consul in J'eru,  ubout 1877. These reports were widely  quoted at the time, and led the government of India to seek infoimation on  the subject from the authorities of Kew  Gardens. The investigations of W. T.  Thislleton Dyer brought, to light, a plausible explanation of at least a pait, of  the rain-tree stories.  The traveler Spruce reported his own  experience*' with thc rain-tree w follows:  ""The tamia-i-aspi. or min-tree of the  eastern Peruvian Andes, is uot a myth,  but a fact, although not. exactly in the  way popular rumor lias lately pieseutod  it.

A  littlo after seven o'clock we came under a lowish spreading tiee, from which  with a perfectly clear sky overhead a  smart rain was falling. A glance upward showed a multidude of cicadas  bucking tbe juices of tno tender "young  branches aad leaves, and squirting  forth slender streams or! limpid fluid."  This is not the only explanation. That  many plants spontaneously exude moisture under suitable conditions is well  known.

Looking at the  general labor world in England wc urc  impressed by the better working con-  ditions created undor a Liberal government, assisted a strong Labor party,  with a tincture of Socialism. ine  trade unions are practically lifted  above the law. They can boycott und  picket, at discretion. There are old-  age pensions for worn-out toilers. A  Compensation Act, by which employees  ean claim compensation for injuries, und  an Eight-Hour Act, for miners, indicate thc efl'oits made by the Liberals  to ease the anxieties of the laboring  classes. Besides this, the workers have  been trying to help themselves. Temperance is becoming the rule of their  life, and. 40,000,000 pounds have been  saved    the last  twelve months in tho  still practised in the Orient as a sign  of renuciation. A father, for instance,  who would renounce hi.s son, will, before witnesses, take off his shoe, and,  if uear euougli, strike his son with it,  or, if more distant, throw it at him.   -  A missionary in the East has recently  reported three cases of Moslem converts  to Christianity, whose relatives and coreligionists have, in this manner, signified their renunciation.  Tho Oriental shoe, being usually a  soft slipper, is not thrown as a missile  or weapon, for the purpose of causing,  bodily pain. This explains the throwing of the slipper as the bride leaves  her father's house, ft i.s saying to her  in a playful  way:  "Be off with you! We renounce you,  and will have nothing more to do with '  you."  Thero may be explained in the same  way the taking off of the shoe from the  foot in thc case of the kinsman who  renounced bis claim to the inheritance  of Ellmolech (Euth iv��������������������������� 8), tne loosing  of the shoe being merely a legal formula  of renounciation that drew its meaning  from popular lore.  The modern Arabs, instead of throwing the shoe, sometimes oxclaim: "My  shoo at you I" This la regarded as a  token  of o.ontemptudUH renunciation.  109  -Lsy  ���������������������������r tC L  /y'C  I'&il THE ENDERBY PRESS AND WALKER'S WEEKLY  Thursday, December 7, 1911  TRY  MA UNO R E LUS  THE UP-TO-DATE  BUTCHER  For Choice Beef, Mutton, Veal, Lamb, Pork and Sausage  Fresh-Killed Poultry, Salmon, Kippers, Bloaters,  Celery,     Fresh Oysters,     Veeners  Formerly Orton's.
