Enderby Seniors went to Armstrong  last night to play 'hockey. It was a  warm game in more ways than one,  and ended by a score of 4-1 in favor  of Armstrong.

ENDERBY'S NEW ASSESSMENT  Assessment notices, were mailed this  week by Assessor Kenny to all property owners.     Cliff street values have  been more than doubled.   In fact, all  close-in land values have been raised  to something   near the actual  value  of the   land. ,.   Mr.   Kenny   is to be  congratulated���������������������������on���������������������������the-thoroughness"  of his���������������������������work.   He-has given Enderby  | an assessment that will put us in the  ! position  we should   have  taken long  ago.     ln   the    past   the   policy has  been to keep land values down in the  assessment   to.   lower   tuxes.       The  policy   has   worked   against our advancement.     It   has worked against  the town's 'development.      Under the  low assessment   policy,   the tax rate  was 21   mills,   while   under the new  ('policy, the tax rate will be 12 mills.  I The actual amount of taxes paid by  , the  individual   property owner,  out-  ! side of the business section, will not  1 amount to   any   more, speaking generally, than under the old system. In  i the- business part of town values are  I more   than    doubled,    therefore    the  taxes will be proportionately higher.  The new assessment has placed the  City on a firm business footing.

CHAPTER   XXVII.���������������������������(Continued)  The Creole Belle  "Wbere'd you learn all this?" sez 1.  "Oh, I've been askin' all "the ol'  miners I've met," sez flies, ''an' at  last I found oue who knew the wuole of  it. All of 'em knew something; tilings  ain't done secret in a minin' camp, an'  aii the boys got interested. IJell, they  finally agioed to \)lav five hands o'  draw i'or the first chance to propose. If  the lucky one got the girl lie was to  pay the loser hah' the profits. If he lost  aa' the second feller got tbe girl on his  ' proposal, lie was to get mine an' girl  both. They was still fond o' the Cie-  ole Belle an ' she was fond o' tlieiu���������������������������  from ail accounts they was men above  the average, ull right. Well, they |>lay:  ed the live hands au' it was even bones  at the fourth show. Then Jordan made  a crooked move o' sonic kind, an/ U'hit-  Dian called for a new deal. It was tbe  first suspicion tbat bad e'?er laised its  head between 'em, an' they looked  into each other's eyes a long time;, then  Jordan dealt again an' Whitman won.  '-'He wrote to the girl, an' after a  time she answered, savin'- yes. Jordan  an' Whitman wasn't such good pais  as before; but when tbe girl was due  ��������������������������� to arrive they started down in tiie  stage to meet her, both togetiicr. Just  as   they   was  goiu'   by   tbe   ol'   man's  ��������������������������� claim���������������������������Ol' Pizarro, or some such a name  as that he had���������������������������the stage lost a front  wheel an' Whitman got a broken leg.  They took him into tbe ol' man's cabin,  sent a man on boss-back after the doctor, an' Whitman insisted that Jordan  ride on down to meet tbe girl. They'd  had a hard time gettin' tbe girl to consent to come at all; but she was an  orphan with only a faithful servant  for a family, an' she bad finally give  in, Feein' as Jordan would be there as  her   best    friend;    an1  to. blulf  that ���������������������������he   knew  it all;   but  not  at   times;   ''what   is   it   you   want  to  forced   Jordan   to   go  now Whitman  down an' meet  her." 1 remembered the letter 'at  little Barbie bad made me read, an' L  was able to guess the rest. ~>  "Well, Jordan met tbe girl.-an' the  servant who had tagged along���������������������������the  name ot tbe servant was Meiisso, if  you want all the details."  "I knew it," sez 1; "go on."  "lie brought the girl back to where  .-the Creole Belle was  tendin' to Whit-  '��������������������������� man in a mighty gentle an' tender way.  ���������������������������The girl "didn't seem to care much for  ....Whitman'when ;she-saw him, an' -that  very day they had it out.    She didn't  .make no fuss, she -was a" game" one all  right; just said  that-it was a mistako  all    round  an' left on tbe next stage,  goin' to Frisco.  ���������������������������  "Whitman   va3   laid, up  six   weeks,  an'-   by   the   tinio   be   was   out  Jordan  . told him that he was ready to propose  to the girl on his own hook. Whitman  agreed,   Jordan   made   hi.s   play,   got "a  '���������������������������'"favorable answer, an' Whitman made  over a full deed to the Creole Belle.  Just at this time ol' Pizzaro cashed  in, an' the first thing Whitman knew  be was married to tbe Creole Belle, had  sold his wife's mine an' started to  leave the country. Down at the station he hears a chance word tbat gives  him a tip, an' he leaves bis wife there  an' goes back to the mine. He accuses  Jordan of. havin' told the eastern girl  tbat he was already married to the  Creole Belle when she came out to  marry him herself. Jordan denies it,  but they fight, an' its sure a bad  fight. Jordan gels three bullets in his  body an' only laughs about it;, but be  shoots Whitman twice, so that fever  sets   in,  an'   it   was   reported   that  be  ���������������������������d i cd; A-nyb oiVy=l_ e-s=tn-kc u=d o w u���������������������������to-  the train an' put o-u  board, ont of his  head; an' was never heard of again.  "Jordan hid hia wounds purty well,  bein' a man o' wonderful grit; but just  when hc was gettin' around again one  o' tbe boys that whitman had done  a good turn to picks a quarrel with Jordan, an' Jordan still bein' stiff from  the wounds he was hidin', gets iho  \vor.ct of it, ia hammered up with a  - pick-haiidlo an '- left-for-duad.-IJe-doii-t  die. however, he works the Creole Belle  mine till he's taken out about a million,  an' tiiiiti she closes) up nn' hc gets out  o' tbe country for keeps. That's all  the' i.s to that tale. Now you tell mo  what, part of it you're interested  in,"  "Was that all you heard about tho  gigantic inaidf" sez 1.  ','Vou certainly have a healthy ftp-  petite for go.u'ip." sez Cbes, laughin'.  "But I did bear more about tho maid:  she came back to that part a few  months later to square things up with  her lover. He didn't appear willin' to  square, an' they found him in his cabin  one mornin' with bis throat tore out  by the roots, an' they found her clothes  oti the bank o' Devil Crick; so that  ends her story. Sho must 'a' been  some  devil  herself."  "No," sez I to Ches,'"tba worst any  one can call her is a man; an' it wasn't altogether her fault tbat you can  caliber that, I'll stake my soul on it."  Ches   was  ravenous  to  learn   why  it  to speak too free; an' that would suit  til around an'put Jabez into a nervous  .-uiidition. 1 sent this letter to the  governor, tellin him to give it to Jim  personal, au' to hustle things for a  juick   finish.  1 posted my letter an' started up  to mo desk to pay my bill, when "1 had  .mother turn. 1 stood still wilh a  ihocU, pinchiii' myself to see if 1 was in  my ng.it mind or only sufferiu' from  tu ixua foolin' bang-over. A jaunty  young chap with out-staudin' clothes,  an' a brindle bull-terrier was register-  in' their names, an' if I was in my  right mind 1 knew tbem folks for true.  1 was feelin' exuberant to a dangerous  limit, nn'01 sneaks up an' unstraps  the bull-terrier ���������������������������from the leash what  the porter was holdin'. Well, it was  Cupid all right, au ' he was bugs to see  me. He started junipin' up on my  shoulders au' makin' queer sounds, an'  L portends 'at J 'm scared to death an'  duck an' dodge around iluit oflice until  I have all the inmates standin' on the  furniture an' yelliu' police.

Bill  gets Cupid by the collar an' jerks him  off, an' then I stands up an' sez in a  hurt an' dignified voice, "It seems  darned funny to me tbat T can't welcome1 an old friend without you in-  terferin'."  lie give me one look���������������������������I was festooned a little out o' the ordinary���������������������������an' tnen  be begins.

I finally rer'used to hold my  safety valve down any longer; an' I  grabbed him under the arms an' waltzed him over the marble, while Cupid  frolicked around us an' Bill kicked mc  on the shins. I had had too many  things happen to-me in a small space  o' time to be altogether sane, an' it  took a good many kicks, on the shins  to get me down to a practical basis  again.

(To be Continued)  DEATH PROM FRIGHT  When one reads of a person who was  "frightened to death," the expression  is usually uude.stood metaphorically.  But there are on record authentic instances of death from shock due to  fright, and :t locctit addition -may be  found in a case cited by F. Folio in a  Neapolitan medical journal und quoted  in The British Medical Journal. The  writer describes bow a healthy woman  of nineteen, with a hysterical mother,  was washing clothes with a companion  on the afternoon of July ,H0, in it stream  near a mill where, many years previously, two people had been diowned.  "The spot was known to be haunted,  the ghosts of tbe drowned persons giving   rise   to   special   mysterious   signs.  'Ihe young  woman  and  her companion  noted that the water escajiiug from lhe  mill-race   made  a   loud  gurgling  noise,  and that the noise was not human, nor  animal,  but  mysterious.      She  became  frightened,   bad   a  severe  pain   in   her  forehead, her legs shook, and she slowly   got    home���������������������������three    furlongs.       The  headache persisted next day, with fever,  and she was unable to work;  next day  the doctor was called in, and found the  temperature  103  degrees  F.,  the  chief  complaint    being    of    headache.       On  August  l.'i  the fever was less, but the  patient tended to become comatose; thc  headache  had   been   extremely   severe.  .    .    .    Convulsions     appeared,     and  death   followed ,on   August  22.    .    .    .  The judicial authorities asked  whether  the  disease  causing .death  could   itself  have been produced  by fright;   for the  patient, during the development of her  illness, had accused one N., M. of emitting  tbe   mysterious    noises    that    so  frightened   ber.       Folio   discusses   the  medicolegal aspect of tbe case, and concludes tnat the patient was psychically  highly impressionable; that tlie weather  was  hot;   and   that  death   was  due   to  fright,   the   fright   producing   cerebral  hyperemia   (congestion   of  the   brain).  .    .    .    A  footnote adds that  N. JF.  was indicted for culpable homicide; the  law, however, decided  tbat though tbe  patient died of moral shock, her death  .    .    .    could not be attributed to N.  SI., because-it was au event that could  not be foreseen.     So uo.penal proceedings against N. SL wore undertaken."  ed was Barbie's happiness, an' I was  goin' to give it to her full measure an'  nairy a whimper; but if it could just  have been my honic-comin' instead of  what 1 was goin' to do, that would  light up her world for ber, I reckon  I could have flown all the way back  to the  Diamond  Dot.

Betters never  HALOS .AND -RAINBOWS.-    ,...  Thc correspondence columns of the  scientific -' journals' are overburdened  with letters from persons who havc'wil-  uessed one or another of the optical  phenomena .of the atmosphere and who  describe the same in such a way as to  give the impression that they have  never opened a-book on optics. Strange  to say, these letters frequently come  from men who are more or less prominent in the scientific world. One can  hardly escape the conviction that a  large number���������������������������perhaps the majority���������������������������  of physicists, meteorologists and astronomers have profited little by the researches- of Slonge, Biot, B.aviiis, Slas-  cart, Pernter and other students of atmospheric optics.  There is, for example, a particularly  beautiful form of halo���������������������������the "circuin-  zenitual arc"���������������������������which is nearly always  described by persons who- thus report  their experience as if the phenomenon  in question was one of which they had  never heard"and which they are consequently unable to call by its correct  name or bring into relation with other  luminous meteors. A description of  this kind appeared in Nature for Slay  JJ.,J_9J_l.====lThe^.w_ritert==.w-ho-^ob-vious!y^  bad not the slightest acquaintance with  the terminology of optics, referred to  what he had scon as a "rainbow."  Strange to say, the editor naively concurred in this ignorant diagnosis and  published the letter under tlie heading  "A Zenith Rainbow," notwithstanding  the fact that in a note appended to the  letter by a well-known meteorologist  the correct name was applied to the  phenomenon.  Several forms of halo aro decidedly  common though they often escape the  attention of the casual observer. At  the observatory of Monlsouris, near  Paris, where halos are systematically  watched for, the circuiuzciiitbal arc was  seen on one hundred and eleven days in  ten years, an average of one day in  thirty-three.  The Saharan traveller who has occasion to mention a camel does not call  it "a large brown quadruped with a  hump on its back." He saves time  and obviates misunderstandings by saying "camel." On the other band, persons constantly report that they have  seen in the sky a luminous appearance  or* such and such a size and shape along  with other particulars that may or may  not possess real scientific interest, the  gist of which is merely that they have  witnessed the tagent of a halo, a sun  pillar, a lunar cross, a parhelion or  some other luminous meteor that ought  to-be but is not perfectly well known  to the majority of educated people. ,  try is no longer a mere struggle for  existence, but something much broader,  and the. best indication of this is the  development of breadth in Canadians  early in life.  \ery notable indeed has been Mr. N.  W. Howell's development. lie was  forty-four years of age last month, but  for a Jong time be has been recognized  as one of the country's great lawyers.  He has also played a very important  part in the councils of the Methodist  ���������������������������Church, lie is a member of the Mission Board and the Board of Education.  He is active, as a member of the Church  Union Committee, in helping to deal  with that great problem. He is also  a member of theSenato o* tbe University of Toronto and of the Board of  Kogeits of Victoria College. His wido  interests also include membership in  the National Club, the Ontario Club,  the Lambtoii 'Golf Club, and the Cjueon  City Curling Club, and numerous other  social  and  fraternal  organizations.  Speaking of Mr. Howell's talents and  personality, the Conservative Toronto  World said the day of his appointment  as Liberal leader:' "Newton Wesley  Bowell represents the new movement  in politics, the movement of tbe new  generation, toward more progressive  ideas and away from the hot.ry bul  unvcnerable bogeyman that have' done  duty for party idols in the past. SEr.  Rowell represents the new movement  by the desire of those who constitute  a great stream of t..e now current of  political tendency, and it remains to  be seen how far he represents that  stream, and bow inherently he partakes  of its nature. Those who know him  best do not believe that he will Hunt  like a mere block, to be carried as'tlio  current determines, lie is young, and  lean, and bravo, and able, and eloquent.  He has a reputation for keenness and  shrewdness wliich he will have a full  scope in  the political field to justify."  Sir. Rowell was born in Middlesex  County, in tbo year of Confederation.  lie began the study of law in London,  nnd came to Toronto in IS!)I, being  called to the bar in that year, lie was  made a King's Counsel ni 15102. He  contested the seat for Fust York in tho  house of commons in 151(10, and has  always been a pillar of strength to the  Liberal cause.  MINING TO CIVILIZE CHINA  China is at last to become a mining  country, says the' .National Review  (Shanghai), which remarks that the two  great peaceful agents of civilizations  are the loeomtive and miner's pick. Til  America,.Australia, and Africa the,pick  preceded the locomotive, notes the  writer; in China, on the contrary,"mining has only recently been developed.  Yet mining promotes progress in as  many ways as_ locomotion, _ he argues,  it "requires" scientific skill "of a-high order, it brings capital-into the.country,  and furnishes to home industries the  raw materials which " would . otherwise  have to" be imported. China has long  been behind in this field of enterprise,  yet no territory on earth is better endowed with mineral wealth, and wc  read:  "China  possesses  a   large  store    of"  mineral.       Almost   every   province   in  this empire is heavily mineralized  and  almost involving the'use or application  of minerals.     Many millions of gyllons  of petroleum are imported annually, and "  yet   China   possesses   what   may' some  day  prove  to  be  the  vastest .oil-fields  of the  world.      She  has  recently  borrowed some 20,000,000 pounds sterling,  and  yet she  owns  gold-fields  of equal,  value to niiy known in-history.    When  we   consider   these   facts,   to   say   nothing  about   any   other   of   thc   multifarious applications  of   tho same  incidence,  we  feel   more  than  justified- in  attaching  even   greater   importance   to  the work of the "pick in China than to-  the use of the locomotive."  THE NEW LEADER  Srr. Newton Wesley Rowell, K.C., the  new leader of the Liberal party in  Ontario, is one of the finest examples  of a type of Canadianism which has  been me product of the Dominion's  recent big, broad development, By  this is meant a class of young professional and business men who have reached tbe front rank before the age.of  forty, ami who, in addition to attaining  ersonal success, have given much time  ind thought to public, philanthropic  or religious matters.    Life in this coiin-  ^OJ������������������I^MAKING.==ANCIENT=-AirD=  MODERN  Thc effort of the modern violin-  maker to restore the art of constructing this most soulful of instruments to  tbe exalted position it attained in Cremona, Italy, three centuries ago is ono  that the man on the street seldom appreciates. For him no doubt a fiddle  is a fiddle���������������������������a mechanical contrivnnco  rather than a work of art. The expo t. violin maker,-however,-approaches -  his task rather from the standpoint of  an artist rather than that of a  mechanic. Not only is he a seeker  after an exquisite tonal effect, but he  also wishes to produce something lhat  will be beautiful in form, and ho has  the draughtsman's enthusiasm for flowing lines. Bveryone is familiar with  tho name of Stradivarius, whose work  represented in highest elllorescence that  school of violin making founded at  Cremona by the Amatis, though no one  has probed the secret of the marvellous  varnish which is supposed to give tbem  their exquisite distinction. The modern violin maker has, however, succeeded in reproducing the graceful forms  of the Cremona instruments and it is  claimed that their special qualities of  tone can be fairly well imitated. Recently a violin was made in Toronto by  Sir. Win. Knaggs, an enthusiast in the  art. He made it for the well-known  painter, Carl Abrens, who in moments  when he is not'dreaming of poetic landscapes and putting them on canvas, regales himself with violin playing. It  is an attempt to reproduce Amati  beauty of form with the strength of  tone which characterized the instruments of Gnnmerius, another famous  Cremona maker. By lovers of the instrument it is regarded as a very successful attempt to approach the beautiful instruments of .that historic town.  "The doctor asked me if T nte much  ment.

Cook continued his  travels. lu January, 1774, be reached  his farthest osutherly point, 71 degrees  10 minutes, near 110 degree west, a record which was not broken for half a  century.

Bui  on February 16th, ]i>04, she was re  leased from the ice and sailed for home.  A Scotch expedition explored the  south polar regions during ini)3-19G4.  and among other things discovered  Coats Land. The commander was W.  S. Bruce.  .We come now to the last and most  successful of all the south polar ex-  peditions. Early in 1008 Lieutenant  Shackleton on board toe . "Nimrod,"  with a party of about fifteen men, dogs,  Siberian ponies, a motor ,car and other  equipment, entered the' antarctic regions near the .180th meridian. Passing through Ross.Sea and along tbe  edge of the great ice barrier, they almost reached King Edward VII.-Land  but. found further progress in that direction blocked by .impenetrable pack-  ice. - They then - proceeded - to Cape  Royds .near the volcano,- Mount 'Erebus. -'-Here .the "NimrodV left tbeni  and went north.,to return the following  spring.,. Relatively elaborate winter  quarters ,-w'ere - .established- vat-'; Cape  Royds in a specially-designed hut-made  of cork."..'In "March. "1008", a", party of  sixaascended Mount Erebus toc its summit. 1.1.500 feet above sea level."   ' ���������������������������  .On October 5th. 1008, a party of-five  started"- dn its .���������������������������journey to the South  Magnetic Pole, which wi,s reached' on  January' lfith, 1000. The position of  the magnetic pole was determined to be  72 degrees 25. minutes -south, 155 degrees 1G minutes east. The south  point of the'compass always turns toward this point. - Therefore, between  tbe South Magnetic Pole and the South  Geographic Pole the south point of. the  compare is 'directed due .north.- This  party, returning to the coast February  3rd, was picked up by the "Nimrod"  and taken to Cape Royds.'  On October 29th, 15)08, ���������������������������' Shackleton  and three others���������������������������with a supporting  party of five,".which turned- back November 7th���������������������������set out for the South Geographic Pole. They followed, roughly,  the. 168th meridian east until" in late  November they reached Scott's farthest  south���������������������������82 degrees 17 minutes south.  Christmas day found tbem at 85 degrees  55   minutes   south,   and   by   9:00  a.m..  4th, 19U9. The "Nimrod" and the  Mippoiting and lelief parties weie theie  waiting, aud the next day all started  for home.  Jn addition to discovering the South  Magnetic Pole and reaching a point  within J10 miles of the South Geographic Pole, the main results of tiie  journey were tbe uiuliu- of coal (showing that in the past this region enjoyed  a mild climate), the procuring of a  complete meteorological record and the  discovery of eight distinct mountain  ranges varying trom 3,UUiJ to 12,000 feet  in altitude. l  Into approximately the same period  as Shackleton 's expedition falls Charcot's voyage on the "Pourquoi Pas"  in the Antarctic (.15108-1010). In sportsmanlike spirit this French expluier retrained from entering a region which,  as he considered, had beeu "staked  out" by the liritisii expeditious. "I  resolved," he writes, "to return to the  legion which 1 had begun to explore on  the 'Francais* in lOiiIMDOo, i.e., tbat  mountainous projection, due south of  Cape Horn, improperly knowu under the  general name of Graham Land. My  exact object was to study in detail and  the relation of the eastern and western  antarctic continent aud to ascertain  from all points of view as wide a  stretch as possible of tho Antarctic iu  this sector of the circle." Dr. Charcot has presented an account of his.travels in popular form in a very interesting book published under the title:  'The 'Pourquoi-Pas' in the Antarctic.''  No less than five south polar expeditions are at present in progress-  or contemplated. An English party if  out under the command of Captain R.  L*V Scott, while a Norwegian campaign  i������������������ headed by Amundsen. Recently Sii  Ernest Shackleton has made an appal  on behalf of an Australasian antmvtK-  expedition under the command, of his  "M comrade, Dr. Douglas Mawt-on.  whose desire it is -to chart a -stretch  of unknown coastline some 1,200 miles  north of Captain Scott's objective, and  to check the-readings made by former  expeditions at aud near the south  pole.  The Japanese, also are now- for the  first time entering the field, Lieutenant  Shirhafc :being expected to. 8tart out  from Sidney iir September.

Tbc__priniary__.objci't _of_.the _cxpedition  was to make certain magnetic explorations in the extreme south. In less  than five months Rofs returned to report  the extraordinary results of his expedition.  Fully informed concerning the discoveries of Wilkes, he determined to  seek high altitudes to the east of the  Halleny Islands, and with little difficulty sniled into a new sea and discovered land extending from Cnpe  Adarc to the volcanoes of Eiebus and  Terror, 77 degrees south, a distance  north and south of approximately four  hundred miles. He thus reached a  point considerably farther south than  any attained by previous explorers, lie  finally reached England in September,  1843, having been absent for more than  four years.  Tn 1874 the first steamship, the British vessel "Challenger," entered thc  antarctic. It wns also the first to be  equipped with adequate sounding and  dredging apparatus. As a result of the  "Challenger's" investigations tbe ex-  istance of an antarctic continent was  proved, and the fact that a wealth of  this point they could not go on ac  count of the hard travelling and the  exhaustion of their food supply. Nn  mountains were visible beyond, and il  is probable that the South Pole is situated on a level plateau 10,000 to 11.  000 feet above sea level.

You will see by the dates, this letter was written four weeks ago, and  the one to the assistant-secretary five  weeks ago, so I cannot be accused of  being in a hurry to appeal to the  press. I might state that I have  had no word or letter, BUT (?) when  the list of awards was published two  weeks ago neither the Poison Mcrcan-  tile-cup'or its winner were mentioned  ���������������������������rather shabby treatment for donor  anvl winner. I might also state that  I objected to this award early in the  afternoon of last day of thc show,  and before G o'clock T wanted to enter protest, but was informed by the  President and the secretary, Mr.  Waby, that it had alrea'dy been decided and that they would not listen  to protest if J. handed it in, and I  should therefore loose my deposit.  J should also like to state that in  the list of awards, not only was the  Poison cup omitted from my awards,  but thc special for the heaviest bird  in the show also.  I would like to mention that the  last season before this the genial Mr.  (Jco. Robinson, who does not profess  to bo a chicken expert, had all the  business fixed up to the Queen's taste  and a balance sheet out in less than  two weeks after the show. It is now  live weeks since our last show, and I  have not received either regular or  special prizes yet, nor orders for  them. This sort of thing will do the  next show a Jot of harm, and there  are other new societies close to hand  and all talking a winter show, and  we need all the help we can get.  Hoping I have not taken up too  much of your valuable space, and  thanking you for your kindness, I remain, yours respectfully,  THOS. POUND.  Editor The Enderby Press:  Dear Sir:   I would like space for a  few lines on a matter of great public  importance.       Every  winter just  as  the snow    is   beginning   to   go, the  warm weather invariably melts it off  the Enderby bridge 3 weeks or more  before the roads become too bare for  sleighing,  and great inconvenience'' is  experienced in crossing the bridge by  all who use it when doing business in  Enderby.      A   great deal of business  is hampered or put off altogether because of this.     There is, however, no  need to suffer such inconvenience this  winter or any following winter, if the  Board of Trade   is alive to its business   interests   and    will    have   the  bridge- flooded   with    water on cold  nights until it is about a foot thick  in solid ice.     I understand this practice has solved the bare bridge problem in other -districts, very much to  the business advantage of the towns  that go to the trouble of doing it.  I just-make the suggestion through  your columns, as I know that it will  be acted upon when once the importance of. such action is realised by the  townspeople and businessmen of tbe  district.

The following minutes of the public  meeting held in the Mara hall, Wednesday, Jan. 24th, for tlje purpose of  ascertaining the views of the residents, as to the desirability of the  'district becoming part of a proposed  municipality, are furnished by Mr.  Davies, the secretary:  Capt. Edwards in the chair.  Mr. Crossman, Mr. Frank Hassard,  and Mr. Wm. Owen, members of the  committee appointed at the Enderby  meeting to make enquiries and report  were each called upon to read their  reports and answer any questions for  the information of the meeting*  Mr. Crossman gave some valuable  information he had obtained from  Armstrong and Salmon Arm municipalities ancl impartially pointed out,  first the advantages accruing from  becoming incorporated and against  these hc weighed the disadvantages,  namely the admitted increase in taxation, and the warnings he had received against municipalizing a district before it was sufficiently ��������������������������� developed.   "  Mr. Owen and Mr. Hassard gave  their own views in their reports, and  apologized for the absence of Mayor  Ruttan who was detained in town on  an important case.  The chairman then asked anyone in  the meeting to express his view.  Mr. Claude Handcock, in a practical speech, pointed out that so far as  he was concerned he was not in a" position to stand the burden "of increased taxation, with his farm in  the present state of development, and  said his case was typical of many  others in the district.  After Mr. Jas. Bell arid Mr. Kellett  complained, the former that he was  assessed higher than others in the  district, and the latter that he had  paid taxes - on a larger acreage than  his deed ' called for, " and a short  speech from the chair, it was moved  by H. G. Davies, seconded by S. D.  Hine, "that this meeting is of opinion, while not wishing to' hinder  those residing around Enderby from  proceeding with the proposed scheme !  an'd becoming a municipality if they  so desire, the time is not ripe for  this district to be included, -and be it  resolved that the Mara district be  omitted from the_ scheme and no, fur-,  ther steps'0b'e taken in the "matter.'7 ,  An, amendment was moved by Mr.:  Kellett' and seconded by Mr7 Gray,.  that.."this meeting 'recognizes that  the-committee have done good" work  in - gatheringv-'a nd'" submitting the - information we have;received,' and'that  they be encouraged' to continue their  work."'- - -.       -   " -. [     '"-.'."  Upon being.put the amendment was  lost, 8 to   39.      The original motion  carried, 37 to 6.  A vote of thanks was tendered the  chairman and the meeting adjourned.  Mr. Owen's report, and that of Mr.  Hassard, which the secretary of the  meeting failed to recognize, are given  in summary below:  Mr Owen reported in favor of incorporation, though hc pointed out  that he had found strong opposition  largely through the fear of increased  taxation. In his report Mr. Owens  states: "We find that there is a general need of the equalization of assessment in this district, as at present many glaring instances came to  our notice of merely nominal taxes  being paid. '* " * We wish to point  out that there are large areas at  present producing very little revenue  through the various owners being unable to finance waterworks, ditching  and reclaiming schemes, which under  the local improvement clauses in the  Municipal Act could be easily accomplished and paid for by those benefitted through valuable land being  brought under cultivation. * * * -  We find the municipalities through  their annual convention to be in close  touch with the Government, which is  evidenced by the amendments to the  Municipal Clauses Act every year on  their suggestion    '        ,z  "We think if- funds were available  so that the full benefits of incorporation could be placed before the district, many who. are now opposed  would cordially support it. While it  might mean in some cases increased  taxation,' wc would have a voice in  the levying of such taxation , and  would be in a position'to inaugurate  permanent improvements, which under the present system can be only  temporary. * .      '��������������������������� ,:    ������������������  ���������������������������"We especially wish to thank Mayor Ruttan, Oity. Clerk ��������������������������� Rosoman and  many of the ' citizens of Enderby for  the help and courtesy shown xus, and  also the clerk of Armstrong municipality for ' many favors. We also  wish to thank Hon. Price Ellison for  copies of the Municipal Clauses Act,  and the promise of.any further help.'  In submitting his report, Mr." Hassard recounted, his many-, years' ex-,  perience with unincorporated and incorporated districts, .and told of the  advantages of incorporation in building up a -district arid' bringing people  to it. ?He" strongly ,. advised, the, endorsement of- -the . movement' by the  meeting, for the good it -would bring'  to the district 'and the" impetus it '  would give "to the development of  every farm -in the section it was pro  posed   to   embrace  municipality.  in the proposed  SHORT  SIGHTED POLICY  Without wishing to question the  right and privilege of any part of  the district, or any individual owner  of property therein, to oppose the  forward step of incorporation, we  would like to ask a few questions and  will be pleased to open the columns  of the Press to any individual oppositionist to make answer:  1. If the present movement to incorporate the district is premature,  why is it premature, and when would  be the opportune time ?  2. If the spoon-fed child has been  nursed along until all ambition has  been sapped out of it, and all it can  do is to cry to be pap-fed, when is  the mature time for it to be weaned?  3. How many incorporated districts in the Okanagan Valley waited  until they were developed before incorporating���������������������������before taking up the responsibility of self-government ?  4. How many of these incorporated districts refused to advance because advancement meant increased  taxation ?  5.' How^many of these incorporated  districts would go back to the spoonfed days and whimper for the Government to do' for them what they  now do for themselves.?  6. How much development has been  done in the.Enderby-Mara district in  the past twenty years of non-incorporation as compared fo the devel-.  opment in the past eigiht years in the  incorporated 'districts to the south of  us, without ' one-half the advantages  this district enjoys ?  7. Men have held Valuable farms in  this district���������������������������land as fertile as any  out of doors���������������������������for ��������������������������� 20'.years, or more,,  and yet now claim that they- cannot  pay a just tax levied on a reasonable  assessed valuation,.therefore they oppose incorporation." How much longer'will it take"-them to develop that  land sufficiently to admit of incorporation ? '  8. "While we have been calling upon  the Government to "spoon-feed us in  order that we might escape the taxation bugaboo, districts to the south  of .us have thrown aside their swaddling cloths and taken up the responsibilities ofvself-government; have  they expressed any .regrets that-they  did so, and would they!go back to  unincorporation days,?

Ami the cha.ncter of ..avert,  the relentless poliee ollicial who turned  up every time poor .Jean Valjean got  ii fresh start, is, to niy mind, one of  the most despicable pictures ever drawn  by a novelist. Vet ,the policeman was  only uoing his duty, as tho law laid  it down."  Mr. Pinkerton paused, relit his cigar,  Contemplated the richly browned meerschaum holder affectionately i'or a moment, then spoke again.  "We wero talking tho other day  about crooks who turned straight," he  .-aid. "1 told you of some I knew who  had paid the penalty of their crimes  and aro now honest, respected men���������������������������  ������������������ood citizens in every sense. These  men hold up their heads among their  fellow men, knowing that the ,worst  that can befall them is to have their  past discovered. They may suffer  shame, but they arc free from the  shadow of the prison as long as they  remain straight. Good citizens���������������������������yes,  sometimes too good. Most of them  are not inclined to set themselves up  as superior beings, even when they  do not fear discovery of their identity, but once in a while there is one  who forgets that he ever was a criminal."  IMr .Pinkerton paused, pulled at his  cigar and  laughed  shortly.  "One of the foremost physicians in  .Vow York, a man at the very- head  of his profession, is of that kind," hc  sain. "A good many years ago I was  called- to a bank in a small Western  city. A man had come in, demanding  money,- and, presenting revolvers, made  tho assistant cashier ancl a girl clerk  hold up" their hands while he got away  with all the caslrin sight, some $-10,000.  There were traces that made me believe it was an inside job, and so my  investigations proved. -The whole thing  hail been framed up by a young physician, well liked and respected, and one  >it the tellers. It turned out later that  this same physician had been involved  in a similar case in another town and  that no had been planning this affair  for two or'three years. -   '.     , ,-,  "He was" convicted, and on his. release came to New York.. lie did not  change his name, but.it is a "common,  enough 'name'- so -tliata it -attracted- no  itlciition when -he" began his-practice  in this city. / Now.he is a noted :p;.*ac-.  titioncr, whose fe'es are-enormous,-and  who is in great, demand among his  wealthy  patients':  'J "But it,, has not been sufficient for  this man''to accumulate wealth and  fame; he Jias arrogated to himself a  lort of aristocratic .superiority that  makes" him a (self-appointed, arbiter of  society morals. 'He" is a member ot  several exclusive clubs and is very particular as to who is allowed to join  them." ��������������������������� -  ��������������������������� Mr. Pinkerton laughed again. '.- .  ."It-makes me lajigh every time I  think of. it���������������������������what I am going to tell  you," he said. "There is a young mau,  the son of a highly-respected and very-  wealthy weste.-n family, whose-name  was put up for membership in one of  the most exclusive clubs in town. And  m the way in which these things are  told,' he was informed that he would  better withdraw his name if he "didu't  vant  to  be blackballed,1 for, Dr. ,  who is on the board of governors, would  ippose his admission.  "The young man happened,to be a  friend of mine, as his father was be-  "fore-!!im. lie'came to me, greatly~dis^  turbed, to ask what ne ought to do.  "'I can't understand it,' he said.  'I've'never done anything any one  could criticize, except to buy champagne. I admit I've opened a lot of  wine, but I've on record nothing in  my past that J'in ashamed of.-   1 can't  understand  why Dr.   should want  to blackball inc.'  ."'Who  is it that's going to blackball-you V' Tasked.   " 'Dr.  ,' he replied,   mentioning  thc physician 's name.  "I  took one of my cards and wrote  on  it:   ' Introducing Mr.   Willie S .  William A, Pinkerton.'  " 'Give that to the doctor with my  i-omplifncnts,' I said. 'He won't blackball you.'  "The physician took the hint, and  my young friend was admitted to the  I'lub. Uc doesn't know yet how I did  it.  "Now, you may say that this physician had paid the penalty for his  crime, that hc owed no debt to society  and that he had a right to be as arrogant and exclusive as he pleased. I  grant that, but I maintain that he is  no better citizen than some of these  .lean Valjeans of real life, men who  a:e honestly trying to live rightly,  with the double fear not only of detection but ot re-imprisonment hanging  over them.

' I could put my  hands at any time on nn escaped criminal who has nearly twenty years yet  to serve in the Stillwater penitentiary  But I do not intend to  he commits another crime���������������������������which he is  not at all  likely to do. -  "This fellow was one of the cleverest jewellery thieves 1 ever knew, and  I 've known a good many. He was a  young man of good family, educated,  could dress well and liked to���������������������������in short,  iust the kind of a man to impose on  an unsuspicious tradesman. He got a  lot of'money through his thefts, but  blew it all in as soon as he got it and  had to resort to crime again to get  more.  "I first heard of him a good many  years ago in San Francisco. That, 1  believe, was tne first place where he  worked, his favorite trick.  "Registering at a San Francisco hotel under the name of a wealthy man  of San Jose, hc visited a jewellery store  and picked out a fine diamond ring.  After making the selection he said,  rather bashfully, that he was intending  to be married and was buying the ring  for the young woman, but before deciding to purchase it he would bring  her around to 'see it. He asked the  jeweller to lay the ring aside for him,  and as there was nothing suspicious  about his manner or his^ request, the  ring was put away for later inspection  by the mythical fiancee..  "The young,crook went to five other  jewellers and did the same thing. Now  he had introduced himself and made  his selection in six'-'places,.choosing  rings worth several hundred dollars  apiece. His next move was to'go .to  San Jose, which was not his home and  never had been, and write to each  jeweller on the letterhead of the. firm  of which he had pretended to, be a  member. Jn his letters he said that  he had been unexpectedly called home  on business and asked the jewellers to  keep the rings until lie could visit San  Francisco again.  "When enough time had elapsed for  the jewellers to get the letters, but before thoy had time to answer them���������������������������  for the answers would have gone to  the firm of which thc young man pretended to be a member���������������������������he sent each  jeweller a telegram to the effect that he  had decided to take thc ring and would  call for it the next day.. So the jewellers" did-not answer the letters.  "Next day the young man visited  each jeweller, gave him a check, which  was accepted without question, for the  jewellers had been completely deceived  by the letters from" the highly rated  firm in San Jose, and took up the  rings. 'J his was on Saturday, and the  forged checks could' not" get back to  the San Jose bank before Monday. By  that time the young fellow was hundreds of miles away. ,."..-  "We. were not called in on tlie case,'  but' I learned about it, and I heard of  what- he did after that. lie worked  the same'game-in Denver, _with������������������ Colo-,  radio Springs, as his/ -supposed .- home  city. He worked it in St. Louis; aiid  a little- later he worked, both .Louisville and Cincinnati in one day. Fin-;  ally he got into six jewellers^ of St.  Paul in one day, and one of them happened to be,a member.of the Jewellers'  Protective Association, wjiich retained  us for protection against thieves.' This  jeweller sent" for me, and I" went up  to see Iu in. The story he told me  was familiar. - There was no doubt the  man who'had turned the trick was the  one who had worked San Francisco and  the other cities.       ' '" ''���������������������������  " 'Can you catch him?-* asked tbe  jeweller.  "'There's no doubt of that,' I replied. 'Sooner' or later we will pick  him up. But if you want to get him  quickly you'll have to spend some  money. It will cost about a thousand  dollars.' <���������������������������'"  The jeweller demurred, just as many  other good men demur when they are  called upon to/go down into their own  pockets to do a service for society. If  every man who suffers from the'depredations of criminals were willing to  IreljTTttttnrtlfcniiTa^^  wouldn't be so many criminals at large.  Private detective agencies can't work  for nothing, and few police departments  can afford to detail men to follow the  trails of individual criminals except in  thc most serious cases. But finally this  St. Paul jeweller came around and  agreed to spend a thousand���������������������������which he  could well alio rd���������������������������to catch the ring  thief.     1 knew then we would have thc  man-soon."' J-   ���������������������������-   "How co'tild you tell that?"  "Because ho was certain to try t'.e  same trick somewhere else, since he  had been so successful in getting away  with it before," replied Mr. Pinkerton. "It was certain, too, that he  would try a big city. So the way  to' trap him, it seemed to mc, was to  put the jewellers in the big cities on  their guard. It was not much trouble  to get a description of him, for so  many jewellers had seen him���������������������������to thcii  sorrow. And the checks by the banks  gave samples enough of handwriting.  Wc got out circulars containing the  description and specimens of penmanship and sent them broadcast. Not  long afterward one of our men picked  liim up in Boston.  "The young fellow begged and  pleaded for mercy, but he had been at  the game too long to play innocent and  first offender, and all the six St. Paul  jewellers identified him as the man who  had robbed,them. Ho was convicted  on six counts and was given four years  on each���������������������������twenty-four years in the Min-  nesota penitentiary.  "I got reports from the prison from  time to time. He was taking his imprisonment easily and was making  himself a good fellow with the warden. He became editor of the prison  paper and wrote some really clcvei  things for it.      The reports that came  to me were so good that the mau who  brought them asked me one day what  1 made of the follow's actions.  " 'He's yetting ready to "kiss himself out," I said, and I was right, for  not long after that he slipped away  between two days and vanished.  "Of course, his photograph and description were sent to all the police  departments and detective agencies,  but nobody got a tiace of him. J  hadn't heard or thought of him for  twenty years until a couple of yeais  ago.    ���������������������������  "I was sitting in the lobby of a hotel in Hong Kong, watching the people passing, when a man whose face  seemed familiar came in. 1 studied  him a moment, then 1 placed him. It  was the escaped convict from Stillwater���������������������������the young jewel thief! His  hair was gray, but it was the same man  ���������������������������I was sure of it.  "If 1 hail had any doubt about his  identity it would have been removed  by his actions when he caught sight  of me. . He started, turned pale and  hurried away. lie hail recognized mc  quicker than  I had  recognized   him.  "In the few minutes that followed  his recognition of mo.- that man went  through all the pangs of terror that  Jean Valjean ever suirered. lie could  not stand the suspense long, and soon  he came over to whore ���������������������������! sat.  " 'What does this mean���������������������������what are  you doing here in Hong Kong?' he  stammered.       '  " 'What are you doing here?' I askod him, and he told me his story.  ^ "He had lived straight from the  time he escaped from prison. He had  had a hard time of it, between keeping himself under cover and earning*  a living. 'He. bad done newspaper  work and other things until hc finally  drifted to Hong Kong.

It would have done infinite harm without doing any good.  "It lifted a tremendous weight off  the fellow's mind. In spite cf hi-i outward appearance of eoiueiitnieu������������������ he  had been looking for me, or for soma  oflicer of the law, all these years.

"Jean Valjeans in real-life? Yes,  tliere are many of them; many men  who have not, after years of freedom,  entirely lost the fear of being recognized and denounced and, what is worse,  dragged back to prison again. Anil  often that fear is justified. I will tell -  you of an instance.  "More than forty years ago,    when  I   was   a   young   fellow,   a   desperate   "  criminal  broke jail  in  the  west.      IIo-  was  a  man   with   a   long   record  as  a  bank   burglar  and   he   was  serving   a  ,.  sentence that  had   many  years  yct^ to  run.      I did  not know the man, but I /  knew about  him,  aud   his  escape  was  a great  "newspaper    sensation at    the  time.  "A few years ago a man called on  me here in my New York office., .He  was' a crook whom J recognized.  " 'I've got a proposition to make,to.  yon,' he said.

So much variety in quality makes it impossible for those less ex  perieuced to judge the full value that should.be obtained for Biicb grain,  thereforo tho farmer never stood more in need of tbo services of the  experienced and reliable grain commission man to act for him, in tbe  looking after and selling of his grain, than he does this season.  Farmers, you will therefore do well for yourselves not to accept  Btreet or track prices, but to ship your grain by carload direct to Port  William or Port Arthur, to be handled by us in a way that will get  for you all thero is in it. We make liberal ad-rances when desired, on  receipt of shipping bills for cars shipped. We never buy your grain on  our own account, but act as your agents in selling it to the best advantage for your account, and we do so on a fixed commission of lc per  bushel.  We have made a specialty of this work for many years, and are  well known over Western Canada for our experience in the grain trade,  reliability, careful'attention to our customers' interests, and promptness  in  making settlements.  We invite farmers who have not yet employed us to write to us for  shipping instructions and market information, and in regard to our  standing in the Winnipeg Grain Trade, and our financial position, we  beg to refer you to the .Union Bank of Canada, and any of itB branches,  also  to the commercial  agencies  of BradBtreets and R.

For example, town lots in remote and  doubtful townsites, and high-priced sub-divisions of fruit-land, etc., are  "good things to sell." The profits are big, the buyers are not shrewd,  and the business is easily handled.  The other end of the business, the handling of "good things to buy" is  more difficult. The owners are not keen to sell and the buyers will not  be fooled. But once a deal is closed there are no regrets coming for the  buyer. This is the end of thc business Lhat we handle, and no other.  There is not on our records the name of one buyer who afterwards expressed dissatisfaction.  NORTH OF VERNON, we do the largest real estate business in the  Valley. You should take advantage !of what we have learned while  handling this business. Consult our list. Send our literature to your  friends. If you knew the names of the local business people who have  been quietly buying around Enderby and Armstrong since last fall you  would be inclined to think that the time for you to buy had now come.

Deputation Week at Victoria  Victoria, B.  C,  Jan.  29.���������������������������The just  past week in the   Legislature proved  one of deputation   rather than legislation.       The    delegates   came from  the outlying   districts, combining direct representation of their respective  , district's    requirements  with  attend-  ' ancc at   one   or   more of the mulfci-  , plied   conventions,    which also have  ] beon   a    feature   of   the    week���������������������������fruit  ' growers,  stock-breeders,   poultrymen,  ; Farmers'    Institutes,  live stock spc-  [ cialists,   labor    federationists   et al.  | And after each   of   their several con-  j ventions, at which also the ministers  I were listed    among   the    speakers, a  '. delegate or squad of delegates found  j it necessary   to    meet the Executive  , and   present    suggestions in  govern-  ! ment in the form of resolutions.   The  desires of united labor in themselves  constituted a formidable platform of  half a hundred    planks,1"'in which the  re-enactment    of   the Natal Act, the  desirability of   the appointment of a  commission  to   investigate the price  of coal to the British Columbia consumer, nationalization  of telephones,  etc.,  claimed   most particular attention.     The deputation from the Central Farmers' Institute was 'also specially important,    the chiefest of its  eleven specified requests being in con-  i nection with the cry for cheap money  for farm -development.     The requests  of the Central   Institute are crystal-  ized in   an   application    for a royal  commission    to   fully investigate all  phases  of the    agricultural industry  and its problems,    keeping always in  the foreground   an appeal for a government    borrowing    of   money    for  loaning to the farmers at low interest in order to promote effective colonization.  It is unlikely that the Government  will venture into the domain of national banking, but it might so cooperate with a private financial institution such as a Farmers' Bank,  by guarantee of its bonds or otherwise, as to meet the situation asserted to exist. The Premier has  promised that an 'announcement in  respect to the Government's policy in  this connection will shortly be made  in parliament. He has not waited to  consider an answer with respect to  the requests from all parts of the  Province for nationalization of telephone services, intimating plainly  that the Government of British Columbia cannot���������������������������in view of provincial  topography n and conditions of distance���������������������������venture upon so hazardous a  venture from a   business standpoint.
