While the city has guarded aga-'nst
the practice, it is known that dangerous sewage empties into this drain
and when the river is low the water
may possibly be "contaminated, and
this drawn into the pipes may cause
typhoid unless precautions are taken,
until the water mains have been
used "for some weeks.

Enderby Enjoys Her Usual Good

was' especially so. It showed us
clearly wherein 'we are weak in,. fire
fighting training, and1 at' the. same
time did very little damage. It was
a warning of what is sure to come
if provision is not made for a better
drilled fire brigade. And in saying
this, it is not the desire, to fin'd fault
with. the - work of' the men who handled the fire. They-worked-like Trojans, but no. body of men,can-work

Manager   Gibbs,   of   the    Enderby
Brick & Tile   Company, reports the]
season opening   bright with promise.
He is making preparations for a big
season's business.
The Mount Ida Lodge, L. T. B., of
Enderby,    held   an    anniversary   At
Home on Feb. 28th.   A large number
-of-friendsrand--visitors-were present
and spent a very enjoyable evening.
Mr. ancl Mrs. Dick Best have
quickly won a warm place in the
hearts of tlie boys whose home is
where they hang their hat, and the
Enderby hotel is back to its old-
time popularity.
Last month the Okanagan Saw
Mills, Ltd,, shipped 116 carloads of
lumber, nearly three million feet. It
was the best month (for shipments)
the company has had since the A. R.
Rogers people purchased the property
some years ago.
Enderby Lodge No. 35, K. of P.,
will observe its annual church-going
next Sunday morning. The members
will march from the hall to the Baptist church, where thc Rev. Mr. Esta-
brook will conduct the service. All
members are urgett to attend.
The third meeting called of the
Board of Trade failed to materialize
Tuesday evening. With so much to
do and so little time in which to do
it, there should be enough interest
aroused to get the annual meeting on
and officers elected to make a new
start.

Armstrong's newspaper is proud of
the fact that GOO carloads of produce
are shipped from that point yearly.
While we cannot touch this mark in
shipments of farm produce, Enderby
can more than double it in actual
tonagc. The Okanagan Saw Mills
alone will exceed this amount of car
load shipments, and the Columbia
Flouring Mills will send out fully 300
carloads of Moffet's Best and other
brands of flour, and will bring in
fully that number ,of carloads of
wheat and other cereals. The actual
tonnage to and from Enderby will,
in fact, exceed that of any town in
the Okanagan.
Without wishing to cause undue
alarm, it has been suggested that
users of the city water should take
every precaution for the next few
weeks and boil all water before -drinking. There was water pumpe*d into

" \About^"Hall-past_.six\ o'clock;; 6n-
Tuesday evening,*-Mrs. Buctiliblz'saw!
from her back door "great - columns of
smoke   pouring -���������.out .of. the Enderby
Opera House. - She -immediately- gave
the alarm'and "Mrt Buchholz carried
it,to "the "street:*,Three men'ran to
the'fire hall and. pulled the bell rope.
They 'pulled ���������so   hard the bell- gave
three taps and' quitf  .It.was found
next day that   they had lifted it out
of its socket.'     Then somebody gave
the-alarm* to the mills, ��������� and" the saw
mill whistle 'raised ��������� the hair on, bald
and other heads.     -   * - -
"By this time somebody thought of
getting the- hose   reel out, and,-the
Opera House being situated only half
a block from-the fire hall, a stream
of water was soon playing upon the
building.     The fire originated in the
"furnace   room  ~under   the stage.   It/
was     smouldering    there,   and   the
flames could not be seen.   The, building was   in   darkness, and the dense
smoke made   fire   fighting dangerous
and difficult.   Finally Mr.  Mann, the
electrician,    braved ..the   smoke   and
turned on the lights.   By cutting into the   "building   from the sides, the
firemen-managed to get-at-the-flames,-
and they were quickly extinguished.
The basement timbers and flooring
were badly charred, the heating system completely demoralized, thc
stage -settings and scenery and the
stage lights badly wrecked if not demolished, and the interior loft blackened by smoke.
A few minutes after six o'clock, the
young man looking after the 'building
put a fire on in the furnace, and left
for his home. In less than half an
hour the alarm was given. That is
as much as anybody knows about the
origin of thc fire.
Sawyer Brothers estimate their loss
at possibly $1,000, fully covered by
insurance. As soon as the loss is
adjusted they will proceed at once
with the repair of the damage. They
have made arrangements to give the
best moving picture plays here that
are procurable, and contemplate putting on these attractions three nights
a week this summer.

CHAPTER "JIT.

One Saturday afternoon, after wc had

think -chc problem over.
For twenty years now I had been  a

what else had this experience made uf
me? 1 was not a bookkeeper. J knew
no more about keeping a full set of
books than my boy. 1 had handled
only strings of United Woollen figures;
those meant nothing outside that particular oflice. J was not a stenographer,
or an accountant, or a secretary. I
had boen called a clerk in the directory.
But what did that mean? What thc
devil was J, after twenty years of hard
work ?
Thc question started the sweat to my
forehead. But I pulled myself together
again. At least I was an able-bodied
man. T was willing to work, had a record   of  honesty   and   faithfulness,   and

didn't dare open niy mouth. J didn't
dare speak even one night when she
said,

a beefy man ever quite gets over a certain feeling of superiority before a
small man. J could have picked up
Morse in one hand.

it out of herself. Poor little woman,
she worked harder i'or a quarter "than
J   did   and   I   was   working  harder  for  hirs."
that sum than J used to work for a
dollar, lint we were not alone in the
struggle. As wc came to know more
about, the people in that group of snug
little houses we knew that the same
grim fight was going on in all of them.
Someof them were not so lucky as we
ami ran into debt while a "few of them
were luckier and were helped out with
legacies or by well-to-do'relatives. We
were as much alike as peas in a pod.
We were living on thc future and bluffing out .the present. You'd have thought
it would have cast a gloom over the
neighborhood���������you'd   have   thought   it
- would have done away with somo of
the parties and dances. But it didn't.
]n the first place this was, to the most
of- us, just life. Jn the second place
there didn't seem to be any alternative.
Tliere was no oilier way of living. The
conditions seemed  to be fixed;  we had
^ftrWCrw^fArnnr"^^ ta-nf=ty ]ht
of dross; and unless we wished to exist
as exiles we had to meet on a certain
plane of social intercourse. The conventions were as iron clad hero as
among the nobility of England. No
one thought of violating them; np one
thought it was possible. You had to
live as thc others did or die and be
done with it. If anyone of us had
thought we might have seen the foolishness ofjhis but it was all so manifest that no one" did""tliink. " The "only
method of escape was a raise and that
meant moving into another sphere
which would cover that.
A new complication came when thc
boy grew old enough to have social
functions of his own. lie had made
many new friends and he wanted to
join a tennis club, a dancing class and
contribute towards the support of the
athletic teams of the school. Moreover he was invited to parties and had
to give parties himself. Once again I
tried to see some way out of this social
business. It seemed such a pitiful
waste of ammunition under the circumstances. I wanted to save the money
if it was possible in any way to eke it
out, foi his education. But what eould
J do? The boy had to live as his friends
lived or give them up. lie wasn't asked to do"more than the other boys of
the 'neighborhood but he waa rightly
asked to do ns much. If he couldn't
it would be at thc sacrifice of his pride
that he associated with them at all.
And a just pride in a boy is something
you can't safely tamper with. He Vid
to have the money and wc managed it
somehow. But it brought home the
grim old fact that I hadn 't as yet saved
a dollar.
I clung more than ever now to thc
one ray of hope���������the job ahead. It was
the only comfort Ruth and I had nnd

"Sorry," he added, "but Evans says
he can double up on your work and offers to do it for two hundrod dollars

1 repeated that name Evans over and
over. JJe was the man under me. Then
J saw my mistake. While watching the
man ahead of me I had neglected to
watch' the man behind me. Evans and

He was about ,, twenty," and a hard

My-relations  with, the    latter- were
peculiar, now that J came to think of it.
Jn  these last dozen-years-J "had  come
to know the details of their lives as intimately as my own.   ]n"a way we bad
been   like  one  big  family.    Wc  knew
each other as Frank, and Joe, and Bill,
and Josh, and were familiar with  one
annr.hu 's physical ailments whr-n anj- of
us had any.   Jf any of the children had
whooping cough   or  the  measles  every
man   and   woman  in  the  neighborhood
watched at the bedside, in a sense, until the 3roungster was well again.    We
knew to a dollar wdiat each  man  was
earning and  wdiat each  was spendi-ig.
We borrowed one another's garden tools
and   the   women   borrowed   from    each
other's kitchens.      On tho surface we
were   just   about   as   intimate   as   it's
possible for a community to be.     And
yet what did it amount to?
There wasn't a man-son of them to
whom 1 would have-dared go and confess the fact that I'd lost my job.
They'd know it soon enough, be sure
of that; but it mustn't come from me.
There wasn 't one of them- to whom 1
felt free to go and ask their help to interest their  own  firms    to    secure an-
you   do?''  and   '' How  old  are  you? ''
The  latter question  came  as a  revelation.     It  seems  that  from, a  business
point of view  1  was considered an  old
man.    My good strong body counted for
nothing;   my ' willingness   to   undertake
any  task  counted   for  nothing.     1 was
too old.    No one wanted to bother with
a. beginner  over  eighteen     or  twenty.
The   market   'demanded    youth���������youth
with the years ahead that'i had already
sold.   -Wherever J  stumbled  by chance
upon  a   vacant  position   1   found  waiting thore half a dozen stalwart youngsters.     They   looked   as   I   had   looked
when I joined the United Woollen Company.    J offered to do the same work at
the same wages as the youngsters, but
the   managers  didn't   want   me.     They
didn't want a man around with wrinkles  in  his  face.    Moreover,  fhey  were
looking to the future.    They didn't intend to adjust a man into their machinery  only   lo have  him  die  in  a  dozen
years.     ]   wasn't  a  good   risk.    Moreover,  1   wouldn't be so  easily trained,
and  with  a  wider    experience    might
prove more    bothersome.      At    thirty-
eight J   was too old  to  mako a  beginning.    The verdict was unanimous. And
yet 1   had  a  physique  like an  ox  and
thore  wasn't a gray  hair  in   my  head.
1  came out of the last of^those offices
with my fists clenched.

time   in   my  life,  running    into    debt.

KIDNAPPED
A Day in the Life of Tchakirdji,
Brigand
(G-. Ward Trice, in the London Mail)
Hore is a vignette���������no older than
last Wednesday���������from thc life of Turkey's contemporary, Fra Diavolo, the
successful young brigand Teliakiniji.
His career, a few anecdotes of which 1.
collected in the spring, still continues
in all its romantic mediaeval freedom
in the mountains of Anatolia. People
talk of Tchakirdji as a sort of sporting
national institution���������very much in the
same way as an Englishman refers to
C. B. Fry. When he holds up a gov-
ernnient consignment of treasure and
slibots the zaptiehs who guard it the
incident produces in Turkey no moie
than a mild thrill of interest to see
whether the half battalion that the
local authorities send toiling up into
the mountains after him-will get him
this time or not. Of course they
never do." ' Tchakirdji simply disappears, and is not heard of-again uutil
another ."hold.up" .happens or .some
corpulent   Greek   gentleman   is   hauled
room, club, and ��������� restaurant, and you sit
round outside it drinking tiny cups of
eoa'7, of which one-half is a mud of
black grounds, and sniou'ing narghiles.
The cafedji, or proprietor of this resort
received his unusual influx of guests
with obvious anxiety to please, while
his regular local patrons,, not presuming
to sit down in Tchakirdji's presence,
gatheied in impressed silence at a suitable  distance.
While Tchakirdji and his tearful
guest ware drinking coffee the brigand 's menwere sent to buy fiitcon
loaves at the village bakehouse. Considerable, sensation and satisfaction
were caused, in local circles by thc fact
that they accepted  no change.
Meanwhile, .Mr. Christidi had become
so wearisomely reiterative of the fact
that he was ill that Tchakirdji suggested that he should have a portmanteau
packed with any medicines that ho
thought might enable him to bear his
lot more cheerfully, and allowed him to
send home for three blankets to be added to his equipment.
By this time the men sent to look for
little. Byron Christidi, thc grandson,
came back to say they could' not find
him, but knowing their master too well
to return empty-handed, they had
brought another local gcnl'leinan'of the
name of Difnitri, whom they had met,
and whose habit of body and attire
gave thc impression of wealth.
Tchakirdji accepted'the substitute (it
was afterwards found that friends had
hidden the child ho sought), and pointed out to Mr.oChristidi that if ho, really
was ill it would be very agreeable for
him to have Mr. Dimitri fo nursa lr.m
and to administer his medicines regu-'
larly.
With this, and amid fhe wailings of
Mr. Christidi, to wliich were now :\lded
tlie������dainentations of Mr. Dimitri, the
sentries were called in, and the whoie

ride into 1 he wilderness, where he remains until his unfortunate relatives
buy back the joy of his presence at au
appropriate price. <      -   '
Thus did it happen last Wednesday
to Mr. Christidi, a, fig merchant of
means, who usually lives in circumstances of considerable comfort at Smyrna.
Unfortunately, he had chosen to spend
a week or two of the present beautiful
sunshiny autumn weather at Morsali, a
village in the interior, where he has
some fig orchards. His present address
is unknown.
Jn the course of last Wednesday
morning eleven - men on horseback
came trotting along the boulder-strewn
track which connects Morsali with the
outside world. Their appearance was
remarkable not only by reason of their
number but also because they were, for
Anatolia, distinctly well dressed, and
because each of them carried a very
clean and well-kept looking Mauser
rifle. The first inhabitant of Morsali
who ?aw them was so startled by his
first impressions of these  visitors  that
THE GREEKS ON DROWNING
According to Galen, in drowning tho
inrushing water closed the epiglottis
and the weight of the water inadc the
reopening impossible. Death by drowning was, therefore, according to the
Greeks, very similar to death by-hanging. Upon thc theory of the'���������delivery
of the soul from the bonds ot the body
with the last bre.ath i.s based the ignominy of death by hanging, as this
death destroyed not only the body, but
also ���������'he soul. The knight, however

As the state  population is 9,117,27.0, there must be  30,000 insane .persons in the'state. And  these figures- take no account of the  feeble-minded, and perhaps feeblemindedness js a greater danger than in-  experts   arc   naturally    improving  occasion by demanding legislation.  tho  No  one, wo are told, must be allowed to  marry without a-medical certificate of  sanity. Any doctor, presumably, will  do, although wc have not yet evolved  the physician who can give us eveu a  definition of sanity.

The-liquid is composed of chemicals  : which'effectually destroy all insect life  and all cryptogamous vegetation in the  surroundiiitr earth.

Meanwhile she did not  neglect the good will of the foreign diplomats and their wives and became a  well-known figure" at luncheons and receptions at Pekin." Those who have had  occasion" to meet her in this way say  that the Princess Chun is a very fascinating woman. She is small and very  pretty, in a Manchu way 7'with an.almost 'childlike expression'-.of. face and  large black eyes. Her "manner is quiet  and reserved and she seldom talks, so  that* a stranger would hardly .suspect  the masterful nature which has made  her one of, the two powers behind the  throne for the'past three years..'-Her  only rival was tho wife of the late emperor, the present empress dowager, the  story of whose career is one of the most  romantic in the annals of thc court.  Sick, neglected, without a trace of personal charm and married to a puppet  emperor, who hated her and was in the  habit of throwing his shoe at her whenever she came into the room, she electrified the court three years ago by a,  sudden display of such energy and ability that she became at once one of the  most powerful figures in China. The  transformation was bewildering. The  Princess Lung Yu���������������������������then known merely  by her clan name of Yehonala���������������������������was the  "ugly duckling*" of the Manchu court.  Foreigners who were invited to the receptions the old dowager gave described her as a melancholy figure, listless  and self-effacing, whose only sign of  life w-as a visible fear of her redoubt-  ablc aunt. ]n personal appearance ske_  wM_u"iipfeposses������������������in^bTin^taIl"an"d"ex-  tremely thin, with a long, sallow face  and badly decayed teeth, which were  particularly conspicuous when-the lips  of the princess parted in a characteristically sickly smile.

Her feet, which are naturally small,  arc exquisitely shod in silk. Her dresses  are in faultless taste and she wears  them regally. No longer is listlessness  betrayed by stooping shoulders and ill  oared for hands. She has developed into a  clever conversationalist and ;n return  for her years of obscuration she now demands the most careful attention to tn0  respect that etiquette prescribes shall  be paid to a dowager empress. Her  Majesty enters into such details as tho  hours when those about her shall sleep  and just what dishes they shall eat. Jt  is a special privilege to be allowed to  comb her hair. Even the parings of  her finger nails are carried out of her  apartments on a silver tray with every  mark of homage.  Among her unsuspected gifts the dowager empress counts a talent for painting and music. Her real genius, however, is in the handling of men. The  mantle of her aunt's ability in this respect seems to have descended upon her  shoulders.

Dr. Robert Collyer did on the  <jvo of his eighty-eighth.year, which he  passed recently at his home in -New  York. - Robert Collyer was a blacksmith, apprentice and^ journeyman,- for  twenty-one years;before he--took;"a"  church���������������������������he, hammered hot iron -into  shape .preparatory to moulding_"souls-r  and J;he massive shoulders',:deep chest  and great thick hands-still bear eloquent evidence of those early manual  triumphs.

His  arms are very" long, they still look  powerful. Across on the opposite wall  he indicated an illuminated manuscript  presented to him by 1he little old town  of Ilk ley, in Yorkshire, England, where  he was born, and where in 1907 hc  dedicated a library given by Andrew  Carnegie. One of the illustrations  framing this .manuscript'was thai of a  pair of iron church gates which Robert  Collyer had welded as a young man.  "They're as homely as a barn  door," said he, "but on one of my  visits.to the old home I inspected them  a/id after forty-five yesrs not a rivet  had sprung."

Robert Collyer was an Abolitionist as well  as a blacksmith, which may explain  the stern lines, but he turned from  Methodism to Unitarianism, an act :iot  out of keeping with the mild eye.

"The Methodists refused to renew  mj' license,'* said he. "for one rpason,  because , I'd been lecturing against  slavery.     It made my fortune."  The blacksmith became a Unitarian  missionary in Chicago, where he founded Unity Church, of which he was,  pastor until 1S79. Then he went to  New York, to thc Church of the Messiah, of which he is today the pastor  emeritus. In the war he didn't go  to the front as a soldier, but as a  nurse. This prompted the question  whether he believed, liko Tolstoi, in  iion-rt'sistarce.  "I believed in non-resistance until  they Grcd on Fort Sumter," he replied.  "Then I hunted up a text big enough  to preach from. It was: 'Tlr.n Jesus  said: But now, he that hath no sword,  let him sell his garment and buy one.'  It comes from somewhere near the end  of the New Testament. T can 't cite  the veforen'-p; but it was a law unto  my mind at that timo."  Fred.

Conservatism   in   the   Enderby    district  hinges   upon    thc   name   of Fred H.  Barnes.     Of course, in years past he  jhas had the help of such stalwarts as  . Geo.    Heggie,    Frank   Hassard   and  {"Daddy"    Fenton,    but   always and  lever in the van has been the name of  {Fred H.   Barnes.

Mr. Ruttan  has  demonstrated his  worthiness for  thc position,    and   in   accepting the  leadership of* the party here, takes up  the responsibility   laid down by Mr.  Barnes, fully prepared to give to the  [party    and    the   community, the full  service of a man capable and sincere.  He will have   at his back all the assistance Mr. Barnes and the men who  have' worked   with   him in the past  can give.  cent of its actual value, and he suggested that it be lowered to about  $10 an acre for assessment purposes.  Another gentleman complained that  his 19 acres within the city limits  should bo reduced from ,$9G0 to ?G10.  His taxes amounted Lo $11.50 and hc  was prepared to nay ?6. If the Court  would not allow this, then hc would  petition the Government and ask to  be let out of the city of Enderby.  Another gentleman selling his land  at ?500 an acre, conrplained that the  assessed value ,, of .$150 an acre was  unreasonable high. And another  ! owner of lots assessed at ?lf)0 and  ? 1.75 complained that the valuation  was much too high.  Thc only complaint that was allowed invloved the valuation of the  corner lot of B. S. Fenn, opposite the  Linton property, corner Cliff and  Sicamous street.

T. L. Irving, of North Georgetown, Quebec,  used concrete for 81 -different purposes on his  farm in 1911.  There are probably at least a dozen profitable uses for concrete on your farm at the present moment.  Perhaps you haven't thought of Concrete, except for a new barn, or a  silo, or some other big improvement for which you aren't quite 'ready yet.  That's why you should read  "What The Farmer Can Do With Concrete"  It will open your eyes to the hundreds of, uses that other farmers have  found for this material. In plain language, and with the  aid of many photographs, ,it explains just what these uses  are, and how they.can be applied to your-farm.  Concrete can not'only ibecused for.all the purposes to  which wood has been applied, but also many others for  which  wood would  never be suitable.

Important Provisions Made in the  ^     Government's Railway Policy  1" -The new railway policy upon  ']���������������������������   which-Premier. McBride has gone  77 to the,country asking-its ratifica-  / tion in the,election to" take place  on .March 28th, provides roughly  - for the construction of 795 miles  of additional" railway to    meet  development -    necessities     of  -various   parts  of the7province  Aand to be constructed as features  ,  of   the-,, three   transcontinental  systems of Canada���������������������������the Canadian ^Pacific,. the Canadian North-  .   ern and_the.Grand Trunk Pacific.  The latter does not appear directly Jin connection   with the, construction of   the -Vancouver-to-  Fort  George - road,  it being an  - obligation of the G. T. P. charter  from the federal government that  _' the company's main line shall be  completed   before   any branch  ; lines are undertaken.   As it~ is  imperative for   the retention of  ��������������������������� the trade of new Cariboo by Brit-  s==ish=Columbia=cities=:that=the==line  to Fort George should be constructed at once,  the compact with  British Columbia for the building  of the line is made in the name of  contractors Foley, Welch & Stewart, the G. T. P. company assuming the operation of the road, as  well as taking an option to purchase it. .The aggregate construction provided for will envolve expenditures of approximately $40,-  000,000 to secure which the Government guarantees bonds of the  interested companies at $35,000  per mile, to the extent of $25,000,-  000 and also spends incashabout  $2,000,000.    Part   of  this cash  bonus goes to the Kettle River  Valley line, which, to assist  its  extension from Coldwater Junction to Hope, fifty miles, receives  $10,000 per mile.    Under bond-  guarantees, the Canadian Northern Pacific will build from Kamloops to Kelowna by way of Grand  Prairie, Armstrong and Vernon,  with a branch  to  Lumby,  and  will also continue its Vancouver  Island section from the 100-mile  Post, to which construction is now  advancing, northerly to Campbell  river, it being the ultimate plan  to press on to Hardy Bay and  Quatsino Sound. Under the name  and title of the Pacific and Great  Eastern, Foley, Welch & Stewart  (representing the Grand  Trunk  Pacific) is chartered and receives  a bond guarantee on $35,000 per  mile to build from Howe  Sound.  to'Fort George .-by-way"' of -the  Pemberton_ Meadows; 450rhilesr  Minor features of.the newly.dis-  closed policy are:. .The acquire^  ment, standardizing and  future  operation' of the: Kaslo and Slocan  Railway by the C. .P!?Ik,., which  receives  toward  the /estimated  expenditure" involved of $400,000  twenty five per "cent, or $100,000  from" the Province. The C..P. R.  also is authorized to formally ex  tinguish the. Esquimalt ,& Nanaimo railway, whose stock it already owns,  this road with extensions to be known' hereafter  as the Island divisioh'of the C.P.  R. The company also1 guarantees  to extend forthwith from Alberni  to Comox, 50 miles, carrying this  line farther northward as soon  as possible, to Hardy Bay.    The  government also announces an  agreement with the C.P.R under  which the lands in the E. & N.  railwaybeltT^arthoughexempted"  by statute so long as unalienated  from the company's'ownership,  become taxable at the rate of 1������������������  cents per acre,  thus yielding an  annual revenue to the province  of about $18,000.

Have the Finest  CHURCH   UNION  In 1889 the first actual step toward organic church union was  begun, when the General Assembly of the Presbyterian Church  proposed co-operation with the  other churches in order to prevent overlapping in the home mission fields. This step proved a  signal success.  The next a more comprehensive  step em anated from the General  Conference of the Methodist  Church in 1902. It recommended  that although a unity of all the  evangelical churches appeared at  the time impracticable the three  denominations named y above  should unite for a more efficient  and economical ministry. The  first thing in order was the drafting of a "Proposed Basis of  Union," so it further recommended that a conference of a joint  committee, comprising represen-  tiyes from the three churches,  should be held to colaborate on a  Home-Grown Nursery Stock  Including���������������������������  APPLES,  PEARS, PLUMS,  CHERRIES,   SMALL   FRUITS  AUD ORNA  MENTAL SHRUBBERY.

The daring, sometimes tho
donee, of the camera-man forms a
lev ot' adventure nil by itself,
has tfone farthest north, farthest
south; ho has conquered the Himalayas and neiietrated tropical forests,
he has snapped his shutter in the
Liter's faee, and ridden the wind with
Wright. Kven at this writing, we
are told, a man is all but buried in
llu: snow and ice in a far northern
parallel, taking pictures of the Arctic
night. And in the jungles of Africa
aiid .Indian, writes William Allen Johnston, in Mini soy's Magazine, men are
hourly risking their lives by thc sido
of ihe camera. But the dangers which
the professional "camera fiend" must
run are more often of the mind than
of the body. Por example, a few
months ago, while a conference of governors was going on at Louisville, Ky.,
the. manager of a photographic firm
ia New York resolved, at the last moment, to send an expert there for
"photos." The expert caught thc
next train, travelled over a thousand
miles and at the last moment discovered tint there were no pictures whatever to be had. The governors, with
lhe secrecy of baseball or business
magnates, were industriously seated behind locked, almost scaled doors, froni
which it w;is impossible to extract
them. Did they wish to have their
pictures taken? They did not! Disheartening that to the "present day
photographer? asks Mr. Johnston. Ah,
no! He was not in tho habit of travelling even a mile i'or naught, to say
nothing of eleven hundred, and. taking
his own time, he engaged a likely
suite of rooms directly opposite the executive chamber. Deliberately, then,
we read:
Here, in the face of the hotel manager's express orders, and almost in
that factotum 's own face, lie arranged
-his flasli-light lamp on a table, and
covered it carelessly with his overcoat.
Then he waited.
When the., big doors of the chamber
opposite were swung open, hc was
standing alertly in the hall.
���������''This way, gentlemen!" he announced sonorously.      "This way!"
With scarcely a questioning glance,
lho dignified body, lcaderless for a moment, followed the wave of the photographer's hand and filed into thc room.
.Plash! Puff! It was over iu a moment, and while the sedate executives
looked wohderingly at oue another, an-
energetic man with a camera slipped
through their, ranks and into the developing room.
Jt takes but few minutes to secure
a negative nowadays. This photographer had one all finished, and was
hurrying out with it, before the hotel
manager arrived to intercept him.
Jle had yet to get the names of his
group, however, as a key to his picture. Some of these hc obtained

named   '���������".Jimmy"   Hare   fully   d'u

And he reached his objective point as
anv photo'irapher is expected  to do.
Hare's latest exploit was the. photographing of Now York's sky-snapcrs
from a balloon, a mile above the city.
:>,allonning is by no means the most
���������laz-vrdous form of travel for the modern photographer; but ballooning along
the sea coast is accounted extremely
dangerous.
This trip nearly ended in a fatality.
The balloon was blown seaward, and
an energetic fight for life began. Every
bit of ballast was thrown out save
ihe plate*, wloch wero wrapped iii rubber and covered with a leather bag.
As the big cities of the world build
��������� ipward toward the heaven and down
under river and rock, tho photographer too must journey with them. And
coming to New York we read that:
The man who photographed the top-

broke, and tears rained from his eyes.
The hush that momentarily followed
was broken by the sound of tense sobbing all over the room, and men stood
with bowed heads.
That photograph was never taken.
The photographer brushed the tears
from his own eyes, and drew his camera  ..cncaJJi a black cloth.
Ono of the most remarkable photographs ot modern times was that taken
of Mayor Gaynor, at almost the same
second as the Mayor was shot by an
assassin ou board the Lsronprin/.essin
Cecilie. Mr. Johnston further informs us:

weekly in New York received a print

which actually showed thc explosion of
the bomb thrown at the royal carriage.
If this snap-shot had been offered the
papers in time, it would easily have
fetched several hundred dollars.
The leading dailies in this country
employ anywhere-, from one to a dozen
photographers, and manage to keep
them busily on the jump. But sometimes oven a dozen men- are too few,
we read, or, as in this case, their legs
fail to stretch far enough.      So:
In the scramble for photographs of
the San .Prancisco disaster, one: daily
in New York was moved to "fake"
a picture of the stricken city. An
old photograph of San Prancisco was
used, and an export was employed to
retouch it with fire, 3moke, and'crumbling ruins, Thc work was so cleverly
done that, it would easily have passed

lt was universally thought at thc
time that the ridiculous error was due
to an oversight. As a matter of fact
it was not. The first editions of the
newspaper appeared without the date;

The eruption of Mount Pelee was
still in progress when the .-photographers arrived, and established their base
in the hot cindor-beds; and there havo
been instances where daring operators
planted their cameras oh thc very

In fact, says Mr. Johnston, by way
of finale:

Buyers Shoold Distinguish
Between thc real estate that is "a good thing to sell" and the real estate
that is "a good thing to buy." .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 thc business is easily handled.
The other end of the business, thc 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 thc
buyer. This is the end of the business that wc 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 tbe names of the local business people who have

-Dated, Feb. 6, 1911.
Editor The Enderby Press:
Dear Sir: When perusing thc
utes of the city council in thc last issue of the Enderby Press, I observed
an article that somewhat attracted
my attention. I refer to those
"eagle-eyed" (Eli) observations of a
reverend gentleman who evidently was
inspired to emulate the actions of a
Sherlock Holmes, but. was dismayed
in his grand and noble mission ot espionage, for he failed to bag his
game.
Not so with the eagle, though; he
soars in the heavens above, with
wings like an angel, until an opportunity is presented, then with a
mighty swoop descends upon his prey
and inserting those crue^-talons with
which his victim is carried to a convenient luncheon ground, there tOj be
ravenously devoured.
It is an obvious fact that this gentleman was only seized with a frenzy
of speculation when he asserted that
he knew in his own mind the law was
violated, but could not be proven."A
rational deduction -from that would
be that my pious friend only thought
he knew there was an infraction of
the law, and that���������   .        -   ,
He was afraid to take,the stand'

So in order to pacify his "own mind'
he%appealstto the-city fathers to introduce puritanic measures into this
nuiet,  law-abiding town of Enderby,'
against two of the quietest, most or-;,
derly, best conducted and efficient hotels in the interior country.       -  -   . ���������
���������i- also   states - that     conditions
around   these 'hotels within the last
two' week's   were   anything   but comfortable'.  l I   wonder   how they'were
previous '.to'- that? ' I/presume, pretty
good;"-or-else'it .is just .recently since
he has mustered    up 'Jourage enough,
to make "the, complaint.      -. . _   ;
' Now what class of men was it that
caused such" repulsive actions in those
'memorable "two weeks"? It was
not the corporation magnate or those
that pursue thc more genteel vocations; neither was it the mechanic or
the docile farmer that so disgusted
the reverend gentleman. No; it was
the unsophisticated (that's what
rain- some think) lumberjack, against
whom the insinuations were cast. A
very unfair act ^'lo.-,-1 when you consider that these men are isolated
from civilization for months fet a
time, shorn of the pleasures and luxuries of' life, effecting the initial
stroke on a material that forms thc
basis of one of the greatest industries
in this province. Their life is indeed one of intense monotony, working from morn till night, week in and
week out, with nothing but a repulsive old bunk house confronting them
when the work is done. They are the
party that .should complain about
"uncomfortable, conditions"; but no,
thc majority seem satisfied. If the
reverend gentleman had to. repose in
a bunk with one 'of these men, he
would often times have ample room
to complain. Can you blame these
lumberjacks then when they come to
town for sipping that liquid .which
fills them with hilarity? Why, no;
he'" is simple driven to drink.
The majority of parsons, and a
great many laymen, seem to think
these men a sort of nonentity among
the human ' race; that they have no
rights, no privileges; -that ' they
should not be allowed to intermingle
among the pure and undefiled creV'
tures of the so-called higher-class.
No wonder they are deficient in those_
virtues which the parson thinks they
should possess. It is your duty,,my
reverend friend, to lend a kind, hand
to these men and lift them out of the.
depths of degradations in which they
have, fallen, and not ignore tbem.

Tommy Murphy, the most successful  liarness-hoise driver on the American  turf, is in bad shape, physically, and  will have to take a rest where there are  no horses.

When Goldsmith Maid, 2.14, ancl  Smuggler, 2.15Vi, trotted their great  race over the Cleveland.

One  of-the fraternity who overheard this  remark said: "I'll bet you $100 to $20  he don't." The preacher was interested, but shocked, and silently protested  by pinching his friend's arm.

The>*e is a romance connected with  the sale of this fast pacing stallion,  which very few horsemen were awaie  of, as his sale was a meeting between  a horse and owners that trace back  to the balmy days of the once f'-unous  Village Farm of the late J.

For weeks one of those low temperature augers, such as smoulder between two men who havo lived together ioo long, had been ready to  burst into flames ot; rage. He-threw  down the heavy net he was carrying,  and turned lo his brother lien.  "Dui-u ye!" ho shouted. "Git oll'en  my bod!''  "Hey?" said Bon, opening hia mild  blue eyes with surprise. "What's tho  matter, Sam?"  "Git ofl'en my bed!" shouted Sam.  "What mean yo, lyin' on my bed with  yor boots all clay mucked up? You  don't care! 'Tain't nothin' to you if  tho shack looks like a pig sty. J kin  work my head oil' tryin' to keep things  neat an ' tidy "  "Pshaw!"     said     Ben     carelessly.

What damage is  mv boots goin' to do to your bed, I'd  like t' know?"  "You git often my bed!" said Sam  grimly,  1 caching out one hand.  Ben slowly dropped his boiued feet  to tho floor.

"J'vo  got a right t' want    my    house    kep'  neat an' tidy "  Ben's thin face turned almost white  underwits permanent tan., lie cast a  scornful'glance around the room. Tom  nets lay in the corners, buoy jugs, net  .corks, broken dishes, remnants of food,  discarded shoes and odd garments lay  everywhere. One window "��������������������������� shade, of  green paper, hung by a single tack to  its roller, and the other lay crumpled  on the. floor. Thc chimney of the dusty  kerosene lamp was. thick with smoke  and   bore  tarry  finger  marks.      Chaos  "and dirt could have been littlo less  rampant. The beds, with" gray jvooleu  blankets and no sheels, were unmade;  no one ever made them." But, as if to  add to the insult of his words, Sam removed the lamp ^chimney,'breathed in  it,' and cleaned'it-'with one corner of  one of his-bed blankets. _, _ ���������������������������."..���������������������������_/_ -  - '.'And  a. feller, dou/t "have  t' "stand  . by'"an ' be" nia'-ie a sissy-out-of," said  i    The   weeks   passed,    and     Sam   had  ample opportunity to be neat and tidy  to his heart's content, and a very little  neatness seemed  to conleiit him.    The  moss in the shanty became worse than  ever.   Ben's bed became a storage shelf  for all the odds and ends.   The summer  brought good fishing,    and    Sam    was  j busy, but when the autumn rains once  more made thc river road a mud lake,  .'Sam began to miss lieu.   lie even wrote  him a couple of letters, addressed care  of the General  Delivery    of    the  two  I nearest; up-river towns, but Ben never  received them.  j But one September day when Sam  rowed back from his evening running  of a trot-line, hc saw Ben sitting on tho  end of the rickety wooden raised walk  that served as a dock across the mud  j between the river bank/and the low  water. While still far out in the river  Sam recognized liim, and'from time to  time as he rowed shoreward he looked  over his shoulder at Ben, bat Ben gave  no wave of the hand. As ho came nearer Sam saw that he was shaking his  j head slowly. When thc skiff, ran her  nose into the soft mud and Sam stood  up,' Ben said, "Hullo," in a depressed  tone. "  "Come back, hey?" said Sam,  briefly.   -  "Don't blame'me!" said Ben without  spirit,   "I   didn't  bring  her;   she  inc."  She?" said Sam.      ".Who's she?"  '' Who 's she ?'' repeated Ben.   '' Who  s-you think she is?     She's my wife, she  is.      But don't  blame, me.      1 didn't  marry her; she married me."  Old Sam let his oars drop from his  hands. One fell from his hands, and  he let it float off down the river, while  he stared at his brother.  "J'II be���������������������������I'll be���������������������������I'll be swanned!"  he exclaimed at last. "I knowed you  was an id jit, Ben, but I never reckoned you was plumb crazy.

"Git offeii that step! Can't you sec  J scrubbed that door-step no more'n  a  minute ago?    Scoot, now!"  Sam stepped back.  "Hullo!" he said. "You he Ben's  .���������������������������/ite.

Every-  ' FOR  THE  GIRL'S   ROOM  Every girl enjoys having flowers 'in  her room, and she will surely find a  place to put thom when the flowers arc  given to'her, no matter how small the  room or how fully the available space  may be already occupied. But it is not  ahvays an easy task to find tho exact  spot to put the flowers if thc room is  not a very large one. Girls usually collect many trifles, > all of which take  space, and flowers must never be placed  where the vase will bo easily overturned.  The question can be successfully settled by using a flower holder that is  fastened to the wall. It can be so placed that one gets thc full benefit of the  beauty and sweet odor of the flowers,  .and there is never any danger of spilling the water by a careless movement.  This flower'holder is made in the  shape of a triangle, with one side perfectly flat to put against the wall. The  other sido rounds out. The effect is like  half a vase with "no standard, as if the  vase were cut down through,the middle  and a'flat piece of-glass fitted'across  the middle. Near the top of this back  piece of glass there.is a hole large en-,  ough to slip easily on and off a large  nail which is driven into the wall.' The  vase 'must of course not be fastened  permanently' to the wall; It -must bo  easy to take it down for fresh water  and'to wash it.'  Even when a girl has plenty of room  for a large vase of flowers on her table  a few extra ones in a' wall- vase beside  her dressing table will add much to" her  pleasure.    - '  For a plain,pair of 'little "mules"  or heelless slippers to he worn with a  negligee an'd around "one's.bedroom in  "kimono hours," a' very-' dainty adjunct can be made by-,cmbroidering. on  white/or cream colored 'silk, sprays or,  conventional" patterns of the~'shape -to  adapt themselves to_thefront section of  the "mule..".. * V ,/"- " '" ?. "-.' -  .-/The design-should be ,of a color to  match that of^ tlie kimono or of the ribbons at.the waist and neck of thedress-  ihg jacket. A violet kimono.would suggest violets or;'purple clematis flowers  on the slippers; pale pink ribbons would  find their complement in wild roses or  apple blossoms, and if pale blue'forget-  me-nots seem too hackneyed -there are  pale blue pansies to*,be .wrought, or a  "diaper" pattern of-tiny conventionalized blossoms atLthe intersection of outlined "cross .lines., giving a quilted'effect/  .will be. found-novel and attractive. -  ���������������������������- The idea can be reversed, if desired,*  and the slippers covered with material  to match the kimono and embroidered  with white or covered with heavy lace  over color. - The edges, in each case,  are to be finished with heavy silk cord  to match either ground color-or the  flower tint.

It is advisable that tests should be  made in this respect beforo sowing.  Therefore it has been arranged that all  half pound samples sent direct to the  Manitoba Agricultural College, Winnipeg, will be tested, and results of the  test furnished parties sending such  samples, who give their address for  return.  The Department advises tho sending  of samples at as early a date as convenient, so that there may be time for  such test before seed time arrives.  y  ��������������������������� --.-1  A COW-MADE TOWN  Brinton, \ irginia, now a busy centro  of industry, owes its beginning to the  poisoning of a farmer's cows, which  also led to the discovery of valuable  deposits of arsenic.

���������-Mr. George Brown returned from a
sad mission to Penticton this week.
He was called to the bedside of his
eldest son, G. Cecil, and remained
with him until the end. Mr. G. Cecil
Brown had been a resident of Penticton for a period of three years, having come hither from Jamaca, where
he held an important position in the
customs house. While in Jamaca he
contracted malarial fever, ancl this
led to tubercular trouble, from which
he neveT recovered, ancl for which he
came to the Okanagan in the hope of
finding relief.
"Thc deceased gentlemen was well
known," says the Penticton Herald,
"and respected by all who had the
pleasure of his acquaintance. In
touching language, Rev. J, A. Cle-
land referred to his gentle disposition
and the patient manner in which he
bore his long sickness, and offered
his sincere sympathy to the bereaved
widow and three children."

Alexander Poison, died at a Winnipeg hospital, March 1st. Of Mr. Pol-
son, deceased, a Stonewall, Man.,
dispatch says:
"Alexander Poison was reeve of the
municipality of Rockwood. "He was
highly respected by all in the district, and has held the position as
reeve of Rockwood since 1901. As
shown by his long record, he was a
man of sterling qualities, and was
held in high esteem by all for his
conduct both in public and private
life. He will be missed by the whole
community. He was a member of

t'o intelligently direct or control
their work. Without the directing
supervision of the man above they
would go down hill. The average
man is a living generator of divine
energy that is mostly wasted or misdirected.���������Geo. H. Eberhard.
