This work proved very popular and  undoubtedly met the needs of the districts in which the packing schools  were placed. Fruit growers of the  province will therefore be pleased to  learn that this work will be continued and further extended this year so  as to establish these schools in fruit  districts of the province where desired and where a sufficient number  of pupils can be secured.   , t  For., this work Mr. Berkley of Vernou, and Mr. Gibb of Kelowna,-have  been secured.

Leech-Porter was called to  the bedside of ^his wife, who is visiting at Asquith, Sask., last Friday.  Reports this week indicate that her  condition is more favorable, and it  is anticipated that they will return  to Enderby in a week or two.  While all will have to admit that  the weather is very pleasant, stillwell, there's those curling stones, you  know. The boys have about grown  tired whooping and "suping 'er over"  in imagination, and would like a  little cold weather, please, to get the  ice in shape.  Enderby merchants have prepared  handsomely to cater to the Christmas  business.     The   displays in all lines  it before moving into thc new building which Mr. Holtby is erecting on  the corner of Cliff and George streets.  Mr. Holtby contemplates removing to  Vancouver, where hc has a profitable  business awaiting him.  Since the bold robbery of last week  the necessity of a night policeman is  urgently argued. The hotels and one  or two of the businessmen have signified their readiness to contribute  something toward the salary of such  a man, but the inequality of this  proposition is felt, and the danger of  setting such a precedent is recognized. The hotels pay a trader's license of $600. In doing so they are  supposed to merit police protection.  This has not been given them in the  past. The city has taken the tax  money   from   them   and used  were driven off. No further attempts  have been reported, and no clue has  been discovered that would lead to  the arrest of the person or persons  guilty of these offenses.  This is the closing week of the elections in the Motherland, and the results thus far "are disappointing to all  but the Irish Nationalists. The Liberal and Unionist parties are^ not  any farther ahead than they were at  thc conclusion of the January elec-'  tions, and Mr. Asquith is returned  with barely a.working majority, the  balance of power resting with Mr.  Redmond, leader of the Home Rule  party. At a cost of eighteen million  dollars John Bull has discovered that ' requisite   pupils,    fruit,  spreading out the money  available for the work that even a  part of these can be accommodated.  The amount of fruit to be packed increases very rapidly each year and  localities now benefit by packing  schools where a year or two ago this  work was quite, unnecessary.  "To "bring "before thc "public the  method in which this work will be  administered a circular has been issued by thc Department outlining the  terms on  which packing schools will  used by up-to-date and progressive  associations, for the,most economical  picking, grading, packing, wrapping  and handling of fruit.  3. Instruction will be given in the  operation of the Fruit Marks Act, in  the proper marking of different sizes  and grades of fruit.  4. Incidentally, instruction, in. ex-,  hibition packing will be given.  5. Packers who are given a score  of 75 efficiency in the packing school,  and who put up a creditable pack the  following year,   will be entitled to a  be arranged for in any district.   This j diploma certifying the same, from the  Department of Agriculture.  C.   Fruit    growers    in  the district  may visit the packing school at any  circular will be placed in the hands  of a responsible body, to whom the  local administration    of the packing  school, in    the    way of securing thc'time and   secure   information in this  he wants exactly   what he had when  an appeal was   made to the country.  It would seem that tlTe electors 0f(mlnimurn attendance of pupils.   This  Britain    have   determined to lay the iplan has bccn pronounced very satis-  a packing way.

It is  j hoped that   the  Provincial Horticulturist may  Lords away, and further, to give  Home Rule to Ireland. This, it is  said, will be the first business that  will be transacted on the reconvening  of Commons.  Local option was voted on this  week in several towns and all the  cities of Saskatchewan, and from the  returns received it is evident that,  with the one exception of Moose Jaw  local option lost at every poll. So  far as heard from, Moose Jaw was  the only city to vote "dry'-' and at  this point the'majority given was 190  it for  out of a vote of 2,000.  factory by organizations in a number  of districts.  Thc Department of Agriculture provides the Instructor and pays his expenses. The Department will bear the  cost of packing paper, fruit, and  other legitimate expenses except that  of packing tables, which will be left  at each point after the school is finished. The responsible body in each  case, whether a municipal body,  Farmers' Institute or Fruit Growers'  Association, will be required to guarantee a minimum of twelve pupils,  but not more than fifteen, at a fee of  three dollars   each,    to    take twelve  bc   present    at some at  least of these meetings.    .  In view of the large demand for  packing schools, and the fact that  work must start early in January,  districts which aim , to avail themselves of this opportunity should  send application as soon as possible  to R. W. Winslow, Provincial- Horticulturist at Victoria. '  W. E. SCOTT,  Deputy Minister of Agriculture.

His eves saw red, and hc heard himself yelling at his crew, while to his  ears came the distant roar of the onlookers, who waved their arms and yoll-  ed from the verv water's edge. The  remainder of the Thistle Down's crew  had climbed into the riggiug, ancl they,  too, were adding their lung power to  the   general   pandemonium. <_  "This is madness���������������������������madness!'' muttered Larkin. Nevertheless, he urged  ��������������������������� on "his men.  Foot bv foot they overhauled the  smuggler's crcaft. The turn of tbe  rock came.

Larkin steering with consummate skill amid the grazing fangs of  rock. The ripples of thc smugglers'  track were his only chart and compass,  but on the cutter went, unharmed. Midway, the lieutenant raised his eyes.  There was the mouth of the cave, yawning wide  open  as he  expected to  find  it, but   " 'The smugglers track did not go near  it. The ripples continued right on  through the passage: and when Larkin  looked, there Avas Smuggle-erie sta ml -  "ing up in the stent of the Thistle  Down's boat as it shot out at the other  end of the passage.  Larkin was balked! But he, had been  hard to beat. The smugglers knew it;.  They had seen few men, least of all a  stranger, dare that passage of the Bull  Bock. Smuggle-erie, filled with generous admiration, took off his hat and  yelled: '  "Tln-ee cheers for the revenue duel���������������������������  hurrah!"  The smugglers took it up. and the  checrin . was echoed ashore and from  the rigging of the schooner.  Larkin stood up, swaying as he did  so, and acknowledged the cheers ot the  trcnerous victor with a salute But m  that instant hc noticed that the barrel  was no longer in the smuggler's boat.  Where was it? He sat down quickly  and yelled a command to his men. The  cutter swung to the left.  '.'Now, iiriads!' shouted Larkin.  "Two good strokes and ship oars!"  The men obeved. With his head  bent forward and his hand gripping the  tiller, Larkin drove the boat right into  the gloom af the sea cave.

Smuggle-erie walked to the coastguard station on the barren rocks at  the norlh end of the village. In the  parlor he was received by the dominie  and Jack Cookson, the former grave  and disapproving, the latter tempestuous and purple. i  "Well,  sir!"  thundered  Jack  Cookson.    "!. suppose you've come  to turn  King's evidence, like an honest man?"  "Exactly what I've come for," said  Smuggle-erie coolly.  "Then, by thunder! it's just what  I'd expect of such a rapscallions rascal!"  "Is the lieutenant well enough fo  take down what T have to say?" asked  Smuggle-erie of the dominie.  "Tut, tut! What's all this  sense?" the dominie stammered,  pletely taken aback. "King's  deuce! King's evidence?"  "That's what I said."  "Tut, tut! liy dear young' man���������������������������I  ���������������������������I���������������������������the fact is���������������������������1<. think��������������������������� indeed, I  may say, from a professional standpoint  that I disapprove of thc entire proceed-  i ngs.

With thafc hc turned his back on  both Smuggle-erie and the coastguard  and vanished into the sick-room.  "What!" snorted Cookson, "is it  possible he's a smuggler, too? Ts ifc  possible I have nursed a wampirc at  my heart?    Bv���������������������������thunder! "  '"Not a bit," said Smuggle-erie with  a  laugh.

The  modern autograph hunter is morc concerned with signed letters and documents, Avhich throw interesting sidelights on the characters of their Avriters,  or provide knowledge concerning the  customs of the'period at Avhich they  were written.  This fact largely accounts for the  fabulous prices Avhich autograph letters of famous men of the past Avill  often fetch. Mr. A. M. Broadley, in  his new and instructive book, "Chats  on Autographs," states that a letter of  the Duke of Wellington some years  back fetched the record price of .500.  The, letter is one Avhich tho Duke  wrote the day after the battle ot Waterloo, and it shows the great soldier in so  new and interesting a light that it is  well worth quoting:  "'Poor - Canning   had   my   small   dis-  -pafcch'bo:v^in^oui-bat-t-lo^-ycstord;i-y-i^(-lie-  wrifes),  "and  Avhcn   he  was  killed  it  Avas lost.

The last hours of famous men aro always fraught with tragic interest, ami  it is not surprising lo learn that autograph letters penned by celebrated personages just beforo their death are mud.  in  demand.  "A year or so back (says Mr. Broad-  ley) .1 was lucky enough to secure the  official dispatch-box, bearing the Koyal  Cipher and his initials, Avhich Pitt left  behind iiini af Batu when returning to  Putney a few days before his death.

Illustrated autograph letters are often  sold at fabulous prices OAving to their  interest and scarcity. One of the most  curious illustrated letters in Mr. Broad-  ley's possession is a rough sketch of  a "projected bath at Windsor made by  King George UT., for Wyatt, tne architect.  It is surprising how famous personages are often unconsciously draAvn into  lengthy controversies on their pet subjects by ingenious autograph hunters.

ADDRESS   ������������������  *SBE___a  *:_<_. _w  iffSSBi  'L__&C������������������_  upou the Empire modes, once she has established them in our  midst, and the eagerness with whicli she resuscitates them  when opportunity serves.  A new opportunity has arisen now, for owing to the  caprice1 of* a great artist, who for a leader of the modes designed a series of exquisite toilettes a l'l. npire, the fashion  for high waists and clinging skirts has been revived, and the  only question that remains to be answered is, ilow shall they  be worn? For*that they will meet with a" general and ready  acceptation goes without saying.    '  _ mode that demands no special cleverness and dexterity  in its presentation rarely succeeds in producing the effect  achieved by one that requires just the right setting.  Thc Empire frock is .more exacting than most, and those  who excite the greatest meed of admiration are the fortunate  beings to whom a high-waisted corsage is becoming naturally.  Those to whom it is not are obliged to contrive that it shall  be., The task is difficult, but by no means impossible, save to  those whose more than robust proportions demand a less trying scheme of attire. ���������������������������    ��������������������������� ���������������������������  No fault is.more blameworthy, according to the laws of  dress, than a. choice of frock that makes its wearer look  ridiculous, a cruel revenge taken by the. Empire model to the  fullest.extent upon those who err with their eyes open. With  their eyes open, I may repeat, for .tho indiscretions of the  wrongly worn Empire toilette are absolutely' obvious to those  who regard themselves in the looking-glass with the cold eyes  of criticism.'   No.ye.rtlic.I_css,^bAt__e_^9_Jj_g_]jolcs occupied byJ_those. who  could not possibly do~bettcr andThose wdio could "not "possibly"  do worse there are widely spreading realms in which are to be  found vast numbers of admirers of the very potent fashion,  who may clothe themselves a 1'Empire with every success,  provided wisdom attends their choice.  The waist line must be high���������������������������that is an essential characteristic of the style���������������������������but it need not be so high as to imitate  the bodice of a baby's robe, though, to be sure, that was the  position it assumed under the regime of the First Empire.  "When shc abandons the desire to wear so very trying a  pattern, the first step has been taken by the votary of the  Empire-corsage ..towards, adapting it to .hcr. needs. ...She need  not, however, give up this salient characteristic of the pretty  mode entirely. It will be quite apparent if indicated by somo  such means as suggested on this page.  By the very happy method of wearing a broad sash, which  can be. modelled in such a manner that the hinge of the  natural waist is suggested, and by mountim. the lilmy outer  fabric that composes the dross, and which must bc full, over  a fitted silken sheath, two means arc taken of securing the  elegance of lino that goes very far towards making thc vogue  a success.  In some eases the sash is not a wise choice; but the fitted  foundation always is, and so is thc lingerie that is cut with  the object of giving the figure thc sylphlikc grace that is  always associated with classical draperies in all their  manifestations.  if it were remembered by all who wish to wear the Empire toilette to advantage that it was, when it was first introduced, an evolution of the robe classiquc, thc thought would  be of assistance to many, and would nerve others to give up  the bare idea of ever making the fashion their own.  Thc V-shaped opening beneath the lace guimpe, edged with  a rouleau of fur, gives length to the bodice, and the dexterous  mingling of tlieMagyar blouse and the Empire, strange as it  may scorn, and to some pcople absurd���������������������������though why should  not two old and honorable fashions be united .���������������������������helps to bring  about a very harmonious effect.  This is .in excellent opportunity for mentioning the fact  that looser sleeves aro coming into fashion, and that among  the autumn novelties in neckwear the double ruflle. one upstanding and thc other falling below, is promised the recognition a pretty device deserves.  Sensible of thc strong link that exists between the Empire  vogue and the corselet, the appearance of the two is to synchronise, with this result, lhat, to those who find the Empire  toilette unsuitable for their needs tho corselet will appeal,  and not in vain. It produces a high-waisted aspect, and at  (lie same time defines the natural waist line.  The toilette of the corselet persuasion shown on this page  is made of violet velvet trimmed with skunk and little buttons, and with it is worn a corsage, of old rose niousseliiie de  soie decorated with gold lace.   The graceful way in which  the eoiselet is fashioned above thc waist is a proof of the  beautiful effect such a pattern can achieve.  The heyday of the corsetiei _s is a permanent affair, but  it should be at its zenith this autumn with the Empire and  corselet vogues in fashion. For even when a loosely flowing  robe is worn, it needs the aid of exquisitely cut and fitted  corsets to make it quile acceptable.

I  knew  from  previous  experience how good Zam-Buk was, so I cleaned the thumb, incited a little Zam-Buk,  and ran it into tne wound.    Thc result  was wonderful!    Tt soothed the pain and  thc thumb actually did not swell.   Zam-  ,Buk kept away all inflammation.   I was  able  to  go  on  with  my  work all  the  time,   and   in   a   few   days   the   thumb  was as good as ever.    A  balm  which  can do this should bo in evcry working  man's home."  Zam-Buk is the finest form of "in-"  surance" for all workers. Its antiseptic power is so great that no disease  germ can live in it; and if immediately,  applied to a sore or injury, or diseased  patch, all danger of blood-poisoning is  averted.  Being composed of pure vegetable  essences, Zam-Buk is an ideal balm for  babies and young children, aud  mothers will find it far superior to the  ordinary salves, some of which contain  harmful mineral poisons, rancid animal-  fats, etc.  Zam-Buk is a sure cure for^ulcers,  abscesses, eczema, ringworm, blood-  poison, scalp sores, chapped hands, cold  sores, inflamed patches, bad leg, varicose veins and ulcers, piles, cuts, burns,  bruises, and all skin diseases and injuries.

LORD   KITCHENER   AT  HOME  '' mud-  1.11E time-honored practice of  . dling along," which Lord Salis-.  bury approved as the less of two  evils in certain diplomatic matters,ohas  aow gone on so long in the British War  Department that something like an unfortunate spectacle is no longer con- ���������������������������  eealed from even tne least iufonned observer of thc situation. Such is the  opinion of the New York.'Sun," and  it continues:  Every now and then some acute development of wrongheadedness and half-  heartedness serves to tear open the old  sore.  Englishmen have reason to feci much  discouraged  over such a  conspicuously  bad  showing   as   was   made " recently  in the army manoeuvres,  which ended '->  in a hopeless and disgraceful confusion,  with  not  an   officer  apparently  fit  to  hold his command.   "Whole brigades ,'and  battalions in the sham battle's were left  t  exposed to heavy riflo ancl artillery fire,  and a serious disaster grew into���������������������������_a rout  of the greatest confusion.    The' corre-  ���������������������������  spondent   adds   this   significant   para- -'  graph:. :.'<,.  There were many striking scenes, but.  one stood out far more memorable than"--  them all.    It was the picture of' Lord,  Kitchener, in civilian clothes, watching'  from a bridge while battalions fired on  their  own  allies,  charged  against  im-.  possible   obstacles,' and ' wheeled ".and ������������������  charged again.  From another source on the same day.  comes the announcement that Lord Kitchener has bought Broome Hall,'a beautiful country seat -in  Kent, .where  he  can bring all his belongings, the gifts -  and curios accumulated during his long  service  abroad, and where  he  can in-"  lulge.bis taste for gardening, which is  his principal hobby.    English gossip is  now  concerned  with  the  prospect and   -  identity of a chatelaine in Broome Hall,  and  rather  takes  it for  granted  that  Lord Kitchener is not looking for any  further service abroad at  present.  It might well appear that there 'is  work for him at home. Yet it may be  that England is not yet ready for a  reorganisation of the War Office as by  fire - S ucl _a n -overturn .would stir.many__  deep waters, and it is impossible to  guess now long the day of change may  yet be delayed. But, however prolonged thc waiting, such a reorganization is  to come, and it is possible that, however loath England may be to face such  common-sense at home as Lord Kitchener has instilled in distant parts of the  Empire, shc may yet deliver her lambs  to the sacrificial knife.  Anyhow, Broome Hall is a fino old  house-in a magnificent-park,-where one -  can play golf while he waits. As to thc  chatelaine, perhaps some subordinates  in the War Office like to think of any  other reason for i_ord Kitchener's settling down in England rather than to  refer it in any sense to themselves.  When arranging supper for a children's party, give a great deal of thought  to the appearance of the dishes. Colored creams and jellies aro always appreciated, and everything should be  made to seem a.s grown-up as possible.

He could not help thinking that $10,000,000  a year out of a rental of $35,000,000 was a colossal sacrifice,  and it had been exacted by the conscience of thc nation from  the pockets of its most loyal subjects.

And we-need-  some new blood in the Council. This  is recognized by all, ' and .by done  more than by the men who have for  so long a time served on the Council.  It is recognized that the opening  year will be one of great importance  to Bnderby. Many issues will come  up that will have to be 'decided. We  are advancing rapidly. We have much  depending upon us as a city, and we  want the best men with the newest  and strongest ideas to have a hand  upon our municipal affairs.  The customary indifference to the  selection of available candidates for  the oflices of .Mayor and Aldermen,  prevails this year as it has in previous years. And when the time arrives for nominations to hc made  there will no doubt be the usual  scurrying about for candidates, and  the resultant uncertainty as to results. We fear that we have drifted  - into a rut in this matter. If the ordinary businessman were going to select a clerk or a manager he would  go carefully into the capabilities of  thc man before placing in his hands  the    welfare   of   his    business.    The  SOUR GRAPES, BRUCE  T  HE London Mail asks: "What  will the capital be like a generation hence if friends of beauty have  their way?" And the same question  may be asked with equal force in its  application to Enderby and the Okanagan.

If this were ab  sent, the services of another would be  looked  for.  In civic   matters    we are less cautious.   We make little or no effort to  get the right   men,   and no effort at  all until   the   very   last minute, and  then when things do not go right we  kick at the   men   who are doing the  work.     This   year   above all others,  it 'should be our aim to get the best  men possible.   Mayor Bell has stated  publicly   and    privately that he will  not be a candidate for that position.  To take his   position,    and carry on  the work where he leaves off, we can  not have too good a man.   Aid. Ruttan seems to he the man upon whom  all are agreed   as   the^ best available  timber.   For    Aldermen,-   Mr.    Blanchard  will    no    doubt   be available,  and Mr. H. H.  Worthington has .signified his willingness   to go back on  the Council   if   his   services    are required.     Mr. Geo. R. Lawes has also  expressed his willingness, but he prefers to be allowed to do his work in  his orchards.    And, judging from the  last   reports   from   London, it is to  the best interest of Enderby and district that Mr. Lawes be permitted to  carry    on   the    good   work, untram-  meled by civic   matters. " The many  friends of Dr. Keith are hoping that  he may   be   induced    to take up the  work, and    the   name of Mr.  Arthur  Reeves has been "taken in vain."  No doubt some of the old aldermen  will be induced to continue. The object in thus casting about is to set-  | shouldn't B. C. send a representative  j man to Ottawa. Let B. C. get into  ! the right spirit and be willing that  some of her best sons should be her  representatives in the highest sense  at the seat of the National" Government. There are also other big men  we expect to see go to Ottawa from  B. C, and we shall not be disappointed. Another point, suppose for  the sake of argument that Mr. McBride has ambitions to go to Ottawa  what of it? It is -a laudable desire,  and such desires from honor to promotion have moved not a few of our  best statesmen.���������������������������-Sunday Mail.

His speech  was characteristically western, and  particularly Ellison. In opening Mr.  Ellison said he was a Manchester  man by birth, a Canadian by adoption and a Chamberlainite and Imperialist - by choice. Amid much  laughter and cheering, he stated that  Canada wanted the old country to  get a move on. "Wc don't want tb  have any dealings with the United  States, which made Britain its dumping ground," he added. Thc preference for Great Britain had been endorsed by all parties and preferential  trade was sure to come. The British  Isles, he added, if dropped in Canada  would need an exploration party to  find them. Englishmen don't realize  that Canada would soon have a population greater than the United  States. Mr. Ellison devoted the  greater part of his address to Canadian politics and the resources of  the country.  Wh3Lnothegin.your=  Christmas Buying  NOW  while our stock is complete?

Richard McBride, K.  C, L.L.B.M.L.A., Premier of  British;- Columbia���������������������������and incidentally the youngest prime minister  of any Britisir dominion, state or  colony���������������������������to-day, Thursday, the 15th  December, celebrates the fortieth anniversary of his birth, he having been  born within the high walls of tlie  penitentiary at New Westminster (of  which his father, was governor) on the  15th December, 1870. He has now  been prime minister of his native  province since... June, 1903, being but  33 when he achieved the high honors  and. accepted the responsibilities of  the premiership..  And every year makes more appreciable the quality ��������������������������� of his statesmanship, and his importance as a national more   than   a   merely   Provincial  figure.  in comparison with the Hon. Newton James Moore, C. M. G., Premier  and State Secretary of West Australia, whom the British and Antipodean press have devoted much attention to as "tbe youngest premieV  that any British Dominion has ever  known," it may be noted that Hon.  Mr. Moore, was born at Bunbury, in  the state over which he now presides  in May of'1870, and succeeded to his  present position of high honor in  1906. Premier McBride, while his  junior" in-- age by. about six months,  is, therefore, his senior in political  distinction by three years, achieving  the premiership of British Columbia  at 33, whereas Hon. Mr. Moore became Premier of "Westralia" at 36.  It is interesting to note that both  these "youngest premiers" of Greater  Britain are native sons of the lands  they rule.  Hon. Richard McBride occupies a  unique position in Western Canadian  politics. He is.not only the youngest of Provincial premiers, the leader  of the first British Columbia government-established on party lines, but  what is more important to the welfare of the country, his has been the  first,government'of British Columbia,  in.many, years at least, which has  wholly won the confidence of the people,1 has placed and maintained provincial business and provincial credit  on a sound basis, has.anticipated and  provided for the developing necessities, of the country, and'has in general so .discharged - its obligation as  custodian of the, ��������������������������� public business as  not yet to. have had its record  touched by the- breath or suggestion  of any scandal., .-.  Premier McBride is/a big man. In  the-eyes of visitors (who sometimes  obtain ��������������������������� a triier perspective than do  those "familiar with the view") he is  as truly a   type   of the best Western  Canadianism as Col. Roosevelt is or  ever was the type of aggressive  American citizenship. He does not  play the "game of politics." Hc  makes it something more worthy than  the "game" into which, in other  hands, it had   degenerated.  Premier McBride is a Conservative  because he finds better material available in Conservative citizens and  Conservative policy for bettering  'conditions in this province and in  this dominion than are available to  his hand elsewhere.     But he is not a  Sir Wilfrid Laurier to lay aside the  burden of responsibility with high  honor that he has so long borne as  First Citizen of the fast-growing dominion.  In his provincial career, PremiiT  McBride has shown himself indisputably a leader. He has shown himsfslf  above the tricks and subterfuges of  petty politics. He has shown himself possessed of the "hand of iron  within the velvet glove." He has  shown himself as scornful of vhc  threats of self-seeking politicians of  his own party as of the wire-pulling  of his opponents, and disposed to m  emergencies invariably adopt the  simplest and most honorable policy -  place his position squarely before the  people   and   leave   himself    in tti"jr  ! to British Columbia last August was  typical of    the    man   and host.     It  scorned the pettiness of party political strife and   was   alike marked by  completeness,    dignity     and    infinite  tact and good taste.     It afforded tbe  Eastern journalists who accompanisd  Sir Wilfrid, an opportunity to studv  the new star in the sky who, as rue  of their    number   expressed it,  "had  hypnotised British  Columbia."   And,  having marked him    well, they  ;ome  :to the   conclusion   that Premier Mc-  ' Bride 'is not "a   politician par excellence," as   the    machine man admir-  jingly discribe him, but just a souud,  'strong-hearted,     resourceful,    optimistic,   through-and-through  Canadian,  who finds his mission in life the employment of   his    admitted genius in  leadership toward the progressive development' of his native province and  his native land.  Such men are rare. Yet <-'-'ory  Anglo-Saxon nation breeds them'.:i/on  occasion. The perpetuation of their  kind is all. essential to the redemption of national government from its  occasional lapses into torpor _r degeneracy.  TENDERS POR POLES  V HON.

THE  HEIGHT   OF   GREAT  MEN  BALZAC  declared  tliat  "nearly  all  great men  are little."    But Mr.  Uavelock Ellis has compiled some  height  statistics  which  point just  the  other way.

The great men  who were short in stature include Balzac himself, 5 feet 4  inches:  Keats 5  feet, Napoleon 5 feet 1;;._ inches, Nelson  5 feet 4 inches, Tom Moore "5 feet, while  Drydeu,    Milton,   "Gibbon,t. Goldsmith,  Horace -Macaulay, Spencer, and Blake  all hovered near the 5 foot mark.   "We  usually think of  Gladstone  as  a  very  tall man, and Disraeli of medium height.  As a matter of fact Disraeli was o feet  9 inches, and. Gladstone only 5  feet S  inches.    If we believe Carlyle, Jeffrey  would seem to have been something under 5 feet, but he was 5 feet 6 inches.

Belgian horse enjoys a worldwide reputation as a beast of  heavy burden wdiose production  constitutes a practical monopoly for its  native country. To this three factors  contribute: The soil and climate, the  economic conditions, and the skill of  breeders. lu the central districts of  Belgium there is found a humid soil peculiarly adapted to the requirements of  the horse, while the action of a maritime climate, with frequent but relatively light rains, combines with this  favorable condition of the soil to produce a vegetation of the soil that is  abundant, rich, and suitable fodder for  the animal.  Similarly, the ecnomic conditions of  Belgian agriculture are ideal for horse-  breeding, especially where the heavy  draught horse is concerned. The industry is carried on on farms of from one  hundred to one hundred and twenty  acres (the minimum area practicable) to  others of several hundred, and of farms  of this size the country boasts a  greater number.  The heavy soil necessitates much  labor; three strong horses aro required  fo draw a plow. Small wonder, therefore, that the farmer favors the indigenous draught animal. So rooted, in fact,  is his preference that interventions pursued for a century in a contrary spirit  by government have been abortive.  After several devastating wars there  arose a demand for a cavalry horse of  lighter build aud more spirited than the  Belgian animal, and succeeding governments tried in vain to induce breeders  to fill the bill. In .1.770 tliere was established at Alost a breeding stud with  Arab. Neapolitan, and Dutch stock.  Napoleon, iu 1S06, ineffectually repeated  i;hc attempt with Arab stallions, as did  the Dutch government at Wolverdangc  subsequently. Finally, in 1SG4, all idea  of a state breeding stud was definitely  abandoned.  After   the   Franco-Prussian   War   of  1S70, Germany became the chief buyer  of the Belgian horse iu place of France.  England   also   gave   an   impetus   as   a  customer.      Thus    encouraged,    native  breeders sought   more definite    results.  They  had  their  work   cut  out.     Each  district hitherto had operated irrespective of its neighbor with dissimilar results.   Hence many local strains: Flemish, Brabantinc, and the Ardennes, etc.;  the last an outcome of Oriental crosses.  The desire to remedy,  if possible, the  blemishes in these several races led in  1SS5 to the establishment at Liege and  Ghent of two associations of breeders  devoted   to   the . improvement    of   thc  horse.    These  become  merged  twenty-  five years ago  in  the  present  foundation," "The    Society    of    the    Belgian  Draught Horse," having its headquarters at Brussels.  This society, Avith its membership of  .1,200, has accomplished much already by  tlie following means: The institution  of genealogical race-books (stud-books)  insuring purity of stock, and the holding early each .June of au exposition.  Sometimes seven hundred animals arc  exhibited, whilo the prizes distributed  represent a lump sum of over $6,000.  Results mark an improvement in the  Belgian farm horse, which uow approximates muro nearly to the ideal type intended for hard  work.  The popularity abroad of the Belgian  horse is already of comparatively ancient date. J.nglaiu. was the first importer, then the north of France. A  later customer was Germany, hitherto  without a draught horse properly so-  called. Then came the turn of agricultural competition' with thc English  "Clydesdale," that resulted finally in  the survival of the native breed. Ben-  mark, although possessed of a draught  horse favorably known, yet followed  the example of Germany. Brazil, tho  Argentine, and Japan have giv<?n their  attention to the Belgian horse. From  December 1, .1000, to November 30,  I.HJ7, the administration of the stud-  book delivered l.loO pedigrees of stock  sold abroad. Of this number 450 stallions and .1:30 mares were shipped to  the United States.  Several facts of horse-breeding are. of  economic importance. For instance, it  is arranged that births shall take place  in springy when agricultural labor is  well advanced, in order to turn the foals  and mares out to grass. In round figures,  there are0 born annually 40,000 foals;  but apart from those chosen for breeding purposes the farmer does not usually keep foals until they are full-grown.  They are sold in the autumn which follows their birth, or the next autumn,  and become the property of agriculturalists of another district, where they  are broken in to work from the age of  eighteen months to two years. Some  breeders, again, undertake to fetter  .inimals before selling them to the niar-  "Fruit-a-tives"    The    Only    Medicin*  That Will Really Cure  Constipation.  There is no poisonous ingredient in  ilolloway's Corn Cure, and it can be  used without danger of injury.  The Liver both causes ancl cures  Obstinate Constipation or Paralysis of  the Bowels.  When the Liver becomes torpid or  weak, then it cannot give up enough  Bile to move the Bowels.  "Fruit-a-tives" acts directly on the  liver and makes the liver strong and  active.  By curing tho liver, "Fruit-a-tives"  enables this important organ to give  off sufficient Bile to move the bowels  regularly ancl naturally, and thus cure  "Intestinal Paralysis."  "Fruit-a-tives" is made of fruit  juices and tonics and is undoubtedly  the only medicine ever discovered that  will positively cure Constipation in  any form.  "Fruit-a-tives" is sold by all dealers  at 50c a box, G for $2.50, or trial box,  25c, or may be obtained from Fruit-a-  tives, Limited, Ottawa.  kct. Prices average: for foals of three  to six months, $00 to $120; for foals of  eighteen months, $120 to $200. Three-  vear-old horses fetch $200 to $2S0; four-  year-olds, $230 to ..100. Finally, the  value of the Belgian equine exportation  trade has risen "to $3.S00.000, ranking  in importance after such necessities  as sugar, $7,400,000, and oil, $5,200,000.

Bartlett)  IT is a matter of common knowledge  tliat in the early days of motoring  the cost of: fuel was practically a  negligible factor, while that of lubricants Wits almost insignificant. Gasoline Wits cheaper thou than now, it is  true,, but thc principal reason was that  the average motorist spent far more of  his time tinkering with his car to make  it go than lie occupied iu running it.  The motor did not burn up much gasoline because il could not bc induced to  take its food, except at intervals that  frequently were of brief duration. One  hundred miles a day was a feat of  which to boast, and only the most enthusiastic and persistent of the fraternity could point with pride to many century records in those days a decade ago.  AVhat a difference between then and  now!  in the meantime, gasoline has been  advancing constantly in price, and as  tlie supply of crude petroleum continues  to decrease, the cost of lubricating oil  must necessarily rise also, because vegetable oils are not adapted to use in.the  internal-combustion motor.  The motorist who . has progressed  through each of those initiatory stages  of experience represented by the successive possession of onc, two, f.our, and  six-cylinder cars realizes full well that  each additional cylinder in the motor  means a consumption from twenty to  thirty-five per cent, greater for the  same distance travelled. lie knows  from experience that his first car, de-  ��������������������������� spite its diminutive gasoline-tank, did  not,need replenishing over-often, and he  could figure with a reasonable certainty  on doing better than "twenty to the  gallon," while under favorable conditions this was considerably increased,  average mileages of twenty-four to  twenty-six miles being not uncommon,  although those old-time "one-Iuugers"  were burdened with more weight in proportion to their power than are their  successors.  It may havc occasioned him some surprise to find that his next and more ambitious possession, a two-cvlinder car,  managed to get away with more fuel  without 'travelling any farther, but the  difference, although plainly noticeable,  was not so great as to occasion any  qualms ou the score of the increased  fuel bill. Twenty miles then became a  good maximum, that was not often  ! reached, and seldom' exceeded, while  eighteen to nineteen miles was a good  average performance.  "Probably there is not a motorist today, who, after being in the peaceful  enjoyment of a good twc-cylinder car  for some timo, has not set his ambition  on thc ownership of a four-cylinder machine���������������������������"a real automobile with the  engine lip front," as it has sometimes  not. inaptly been termed. Sooner or  ' later the inajoritv uave succumbed to  the fascination and. discarded the two  for thc four. Even though the latest  acquisition were not of. the heavy,  powerful type, the increase in its capacity for fuel consumption was marked.  Fifteen miles to the gallon was now  a liberal allowance, with twelve to thirteen miles nearer thc average daily performance, so that in realizing his ambition to own a "real automobile," as  represented by the steps intervening  betweeu it and-the original one-lunger,  the motorist found that he was paying  twice as much fuel alone to travel a  given distance. The" consumption of  lubricants was doubled also, although it  is difficult to give even aproximate  figures because the appetites of different  motors and cars for. lubricating oils  and .reuse vary quite as much as do  those of their human owners for more  delcetable provender.  There is another step intervening be-  twecjj _this_stageL.of_m_otoring..and_the.  "filTTil-degree otH .ifiafibn, although it is  not represented by an addition to the  number of cylinders. It is the acquisition of a more powerful car of the four-  cylinder type. The 20-2+ gives way to  the 'Jo-50 and the transition is fully as  great, in the matter of consumption, as  from thc two-cylinder to the four-cylinder car. Whereas the smaller four  could get over its twelve to fourteen  miles per gallon up hill and down, its  more powerful, speedier, and ponderous  successor made further inroads into thc  gasoline barrel by reducing the equivalent mileage per gallon t'o what, in the  earlier days, would have been considered  an astouiulingly wasteful return���������������������������ten  miles to the gallon and, in heavy going  or with mucn hill work, not so good as  that,  The little "one-lungers" carried a  fivo-gallou tank whose contents represented more than one hundred miles'  running. The larger two-cylinder' cars  had more space in which to dispose of  this, essential, so tnat the size of. the  tank was not limited by considerations  having no direct bearing on its relation  to consumption, was frequently the case  with its predecessor. Consequently, the  tank usually held ten to twelve gallons,  or double that of the smaller car, and  the mileage on ono filling was also nearly doubled. From this it was but a step  to the eighteen or twenty gallon tank  nf the moderate sized four-cylinder-'ear,  but in this case the increased amount of  fuel carried sufficed only to add a third  to the effective mileage. Further enlargement of the tank was made necessary in the larger, higher-power four-  cylinder cars, and among the models of  forty-five horse-power and upward arc  to be found somo in which the fuel-tank  is capable of holding a whole barrel of  the precious fluid, without, however, increasing their capacity to get around by  even so much-as a fraction over their  smaller prototypes, for the twenty-four,  with its twenty gallons of gasoline and  its average of fifteen miles to the gallon,  is good for three hundred miles, whereas  the  forty-five,  with  thirty-odd  gallons  of fuel and its attainable maximum of  ten miles to the gallon, will more often  than not fall short of the same total.  "Where, then, does the six-cylinder  car or high power and corresponding  wc.ght come iu on the fuel questidn?  One hesitates to think how rapacious  Mie appetite of such a car for .asoline  must be. !It is safe to say that six to  seven miles to thc gallon represents the  average.  In the face of this, the technical  points involved in thc addition of an  extra pair of cylinders, such as uniformity of torque, overlapping of power  impulses, flexibility, and so on, will  not mislead the average motorist who is  desirous of running his car as far as possible on the minimum expense���������������������������in other  words, of getting the maximum number  of passenger miles per gallon out of his  expenditure for gasoline and lubricating  oil.  ENGLISH   WRITERS  ARE  SPEEDY  ENGLISHMEN" say Americans work  too fast. Americans say Englishmen are slow. But when it comes  to writing English authors seem to be  by far the speedier. A writer in the  New iTork Evening Post is led to reflect upon the apparent lcisureliness of  American literary methods. Since Mr.  E. F. Benson electrified the world with  the adventures of "Dodo," some seventeen years ago, he has turned out an  average of two and a quarter novels a  year. His case may be the leading one  among English novelists, says this  writer, but it is by no means highly exceptional. All the younger, successful  men are extremely busy writers. Some  more names are mentioned in proof:  "II. G. Wells, who began publishing  in ]S95, is credited, in the last edition  of 'Who's Who,' with 31 titles; by this  moment, the total is probably 32 or 33,  which gives an annual average almost  as high as Mr. Benson _. Since 1904, G-.  K. Chesterton has turned out a round  dozen volumes, which makes an output  of two volumes a year. Mr. Galsworthy  has come into prominence only during  the last few years, ,but his record for  that time in drama, fiction, and general  criticism is impressive. Mr. Charles  Marriott, a novelist of notable achievement and greater promise, has written  fifteen novels since 1901.   The list could  easily be extended."  -    * .  A comparison with American literary  productivity shows results that count  against this continent.   Tlie Post says:  "Wc may put our two elder writers  aside. Mr. Henry James, in our own  '"Who's Who/ is credited with nearly  45 book ��������������������������� titles for a career of forty  years and more, though it is to be noted  that,his record might have been a much  longer one if he had chosen to maintain  the pace of his earliest years; he published three volumes in 1878, four volumes in 1S79, and three volumes in 18S4.  Mr. Tlowells is credited in 'Who's Who'  with about' 70 titles, but that covers  a literary career of half a century.  We turn to the younger men. Mr.  Robert W. Chambers, tho first man we  probably   think   of   among   our   ready  WHEN HEALTH  IS RUN DOWN  "���������������������������"���������������������������'���������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������'���������������������������'���������������������������'������������������������������������������������������'������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������;���������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������  ���������������������������  ���������������������������  ���������������������������  AKING POWDER  Does not contain Alum  Dysentery corrodes the intestines and  speedily eats away the lining, bringing  about dangerous conditions that may  cause death.

A feeling  appetite, loss of  exertion, indicates that a  breakdown is near. Sometimes these  troubles are due to overwork or worry,  or again they may be due to tho after  effects of fever or some wasting illness.  But whatever thc cause the trouble  should not be neglected, and for the  purpose of gaining new health and new  strength there is absolutely no better  medicine than-Dr. Williams' Pink-Pills,  which fill the veins with new, rich  blood, which tones and strengthens  every nerve and every organ in the  body. Mrs. Rose A. Smith, Roblin,  Man., says: '' Some years ago I had  a severe attack of typhoid fever. When  I recovered sufficiently to be able to  get about I found that-1, was not able  to gather up my strength. I tried tonic  wines and other medicines, but without  avail. For months I could hardly go up  stairs,: and if I took a walk I was til-  ways obliged to lake a friend with me  to help me homo again. A doctor had  again been called in, but he said I  would grow out of it in time and gave  me more medicine, but instead of gaining I kept getting worse, and was at  last obliged to take to my bed. One  day while lying reading I chanced to  conic across a cure made by Dr. Williams' Pink Pills, and this decided me  to try them. Before I had taken the  pills long I began to feel a decided improvement and my friends also said I  was beginning to look like my old self  again. From this on the improvement  was steady, but I continued to lake the  Pills for a couple of months, when I  felt that the cure was complete. Several  years have passed since then and as I  have remained in tho best of health I  am warranted in saying that the cure is  permanent, and I freely give this statement for tlio benefit it may bring to  others."  Dr, Williams' Pink Pills are sold by  all medicine dealers or may bc had by  mail at 50 cents a box or six boxes for  $2.50 from The Dr. Williams Medicine  Co,, Brockville, Out.  writers, has written 26 volumes in tho  same time that Mr. Benson has produced nearly 40. Jack London, in whom,  if in anyone, we expect titanic energy  ceaselessly manifesting itself, has 20  volumes since 1900���������������������������a good showing,  but not up to the English record. Mr.  David Graham Phillips has done 17  volumes since 1901. - Mr. Robert Her-  rick has done 13 volumes in fifteen  years, but in Mr. Ilerriek's case it is  only fair to recall that he works at his  trade in addition to writing books. Mr.  Winston Churchill makes it a rule to  give two years to a book. Since 1S9S  he has produced seven volumes.  "Here is one field, therefore, in which  the speed of life in New World has not  increased over that in the Old. And it  might also be shown that in this field  the pace of modern life has not increased over that of 50, J00 or 200 years  ago. What we have said of contemporary English writers will more than hold  good for France, whose men of letters,  in their prodigious industriousness, entirely belie the Capuan reputation of  present-day Paris. Not only in fiction,  but in the fields of criticism and  scholarship, the Frenchmen of today  are true to the tradition of Voltaire  and his hundreds of volumes, of Diderot,  and of Sainte-Beuve. The classic English novelists are less copious, but a  Dickens novel every'two'years meant  three or four ��������������������������� novels of' present-day  length. Thackeray, Reade, TrolJope,  tilled an amount of shelf-space which it  would take many scores of our modern  thin-chested - novels to cover. That  their successors are courageously trying  to, is indicated by the figures we have  cited."  Thc Evening Post finds two reasons  for the lower literary productivity of  America:  "One.reason is thc much closer .connection between literature and journalism in Europe; and-the other reason is  the much smaller financial,reward that  attends upon literary success in Europe.  Men  like  Mr.   Chesterton,  Mr.   Belloc,  Mr.   Galsworthy,   Mr.   Max  Beerbohm,  are  journalists  as  well  as   writers  of  original  volumes,  and  they are in  the  habit  of  republishing their  newspaper  work iii book form.    In France, this is  even more thc practice.   Political chron-  iqucs,   literary   and   dramatic   reviews,  causeries and feuilletons of all kinds arc  regularly put into book form among a  nation  whose  books  are  inexpensively  published   in  paper  covers,  and  whose  publishers   call   a   thousand   copies   an  edition.    By, such means the journalist  author in England and France adds appreciably to his list of book titles.   Wc  need  only  recall  how almost unknown  the practice  is  in  this country  to  see  what an_a^rlya_ntagc_tjic_fj)rcjgncr._has.  "Tt-fsrST course," a legitimate advantage.  Tf  a  writer  of  bonks  is  at  the  same  time a newspaper man, it is fair that  the time taken from  his books should  show in the total.   With us. again, book  writing and newspaper writing do  not  go hand in hand.    Even moderate success  in   the former  field  leads  usually  to thc abandonment of the latter.  "As to our second reason, it is almost  self-evident. fi. Mr. Chambers derives  twenty.times the profit, from one of-his  novels tliat Mr. Benson does, it stands  to reason that in the long run he will  be under the necessity of writing fewer  books than Mr. Benson."  Temporary Heat Quickly  Did you ever stop to think of the many ways in which a  perfect oil heater is of value ? If you want to sleep with your window open in winter, you can get sufficient heat from an oil heater  while you undress at night, and then turn it off.   Apply a match  in the morning, when you get out of  bed, and you have heat while you dress.  Those who have to eat an early  breakfast before the stove is radiating  heat can get immediate warmth from  an oil heater, and then turn it off.  The girl who practices on the piano  in a cold room in the morning can  have warmth from an oil heater while ���������������������������  she plays, and then turn it off.  The member of the family who  has to walk the floor on a cold winter's night with a restless baby can get  temporary heat with an oil heater, and  then turn it off.

The fact that Premier McBride was born within the high  walls of    the    penitentiary   at    New  Westminster,    while    his    father  was  governor of Lhat institution, is nothing.   But the fact that Hon. Richard  McBride,   at   40,    is   Premier of the  greatest provonce in thc greatest dominion   under     the    British    flag, is  something of    which    we nil may bc  proud.    ,And the n?an who feels that  he  cannot   drop    his    politics    long  enough to share in that pride, is to  be    pitied.        Premier    McBride   has  made a record that British Columbia  is pleased   with.     He    has not only  contributed largely to the making of  our present prosperity, but in so doing, has made for himself a fame that  is reaching into Dominion affairs, and  it will not be   a   surprise to anyone  when the call. shall come for him to  take up the larger   work of building  an Empire.  ooo  IT would be wise for the apple  growers of the non-irrigating  districts to organize for the purpose  of better handling their product. It  seems to be pretty well conceded now  that the fruit from the non-irrigated  orchards of the Northern Okanagan  "stands up" better then the irrigated  fruit. At the same time, it was  proved at the Vancouver apple show  that the irrigated fruit had the best  of it over the non-irrigated fruit in  size, and, perhaps, color. The advantage was not great, but sufficient  to carry ofi the prizes. Such being  the case, would it not be wise for the  non-irrigated fruit to be held off the  market until the irrigated fruit is out  of the way? The non-irrigated fruit,  as good in every way, and better in  flavor and firmness, could then be  brought forth as fresh as when picked  from the trees, and it would be put  on a ready market at better prices  than it would command -with the  market loaded. This is a matter of  particular importance to the West  Kootenay district as well as the Northern Okanagan.  ooo  IN the Presbyterian    church    last  Sunday,     morning,      Rev.    Mr.  Campbell expressed a profound truth  when he said that as Christians grasp  the fuller knowledge ancl  recognition  of the Church    universal���������������������������the Church  of Christ as it    exists and ever has  existed    among    men���������������������������regardless    of  edifice, sect    or   creed,���������������������������thc finger of  criticism now   pointed at the church  of men by the   world,  would quickly  be    withdrawn.    There    is  a  Church  among men which the church of men  is not prepared   to   recognize, where  absolute harmony    reigns,  and there  is an   understanding   which   all   the  power of   creed,   sect, priest and tbe  devil cannot   shake,   ancl where men  live and let   live   their best without  any bosses or bossing.  T T would seem  -*���������������������������    have to see to  that Enderby will  it that her name  is on the map. In the cable from  London last week reporting the prizes  won,at the Royal Horticultural Show  by the British Columbia exhibit of  apples, thc name of Mr, Geo. R.  Lawes appeared as winner of the silver Banksian medal, as "Geo. H.  Laws,, British Columbia, apples." At  the same time all the other sections  represented by the exhibitors winning  j prizes were named, while Mr. Lawes  j was designated as from "British Columbia." We wonder who has a hold  on that string ?  ���������������������������-��������������������������� ������������������-���������������������������-,��������������������������� ������������������������������������������������������������������������  ���������������������������  ���������������������������  ���������������������������  ���������������������������'���������������������������'������������������������������������������������������  WHO'S TO BLAME?  The benighted individual who  thinks that he    cannot find a  religious thought in this paper  may possibly have    himself to  blame.    The soul of a religious  person reflects the natural world.  We have known   those who did  not possess sufficient beauty in  their imaginations to speckle the  wing    of    a    moth, nor  music  sufficient to drown the buzz of a  fly.   But to thoughtful,  intelligent people there is an apostle  preaching in every river wave  and cloud bank.    Such a person  sees death descending on a falling leaf and a resurrection foretold in every bud.    The trouble  with a great many is that they  will   not think.
