Crane is circulating a beautiful calendar���������������������������a piece of art���������������������������something that will adorn the walls of  the cosy corner in every Enderby  home.  One of   the    Grindrod    bachelors is  contemplating    a   trip    East     about  Xmas time, and   it is reported that  he intends to   bring    Her home with  "him- on~his return.   *"   Dill Bros, added a fine electrical  street sign to their attractions the  past week. The entire sign is the  workmanship of H. G. RIann's electrical supply shop.  A meeting of the Local Association  of the Boy Scout organization is  desired by Scoutmaster Campbell on  Thursday evening, Dec. 18th, at 8  o'clock, in the City Hall.  The Girls' Guild of the Presbyterian  Church will hold a sale of fancy work  and candies in the basement of the  church on Saturday, Dec. 13th, from  2:30 to 6 p.m.     Tea will be served.  The piece of road leading into Enderby from the city limits to Russell  street, on Vernon Road, is a disgrace to any civilized community. It  is worse than any lane on the Indian  reserve.  The Bachelors of RIara are giving a  dance in the Mara Hall next Friday,  Dec. 12th, to which everybody is invited. They hope to have the pleasure of seeing a number from Enderby  ancl promise all a good time  Who will come forward and save  the day for the young people ?

In one of the races in the East the  past season, the driver of Earl Jr.  was thrown from the sul|ky, and the  Earl paced the heat without a driver  and took fourth place. When the  bell rang at the finish the Earl  turned on the track ��������������������������� and came back  to-the--judges'-stand as quickly-as-if  his driver had been seated over him.  It is this bump of "horse sense" tbat  has made the Earl such a favorite  on the Eastern circuit.  The new Edison disc records, and a  choice lot of blue amberols were received this week by the Enderby Music Store. The new disc records are  the acme of musical perfection. It  is not depreciating the blue amberols  to say that the new disc music is as  far ahead of the blue amberol as the  blue amberol is ahead of any other  record ever manufactured. To hear  the new machine Is to yearn for one  in.the home at Christmas time.  The dance given in the Opera House  last Wednesday evening by the Enderby Orchestra was largely attended  and the occasion most enjoyable. The  last dance of the series given by the  orchestra will be that on Wednesday  evening, Dec. 17th. These dances  have proven of great pleasure to all  taking part, and the public will have  an opportunity of showing appreciation of the efforts of the orchestra  by being present on the evening of  the closing dance of the series.  Grindrod narrowly escaped having  another sensation sprung'upon it a  few "days ago. .

The groom is an old Iron-  wood boy upon whom fortune has  smiled, and who has "made good"  in the western country. He is a son  of Rlrs.

The  value of the land can only be .gauged  by what   the   adjoining land is producing, and If there is only a   small  clearing    adjoining,    with    uninviting  j improvements, the probability is that  I the prospective buyer will turn away  ��������������������������� from even the best of our land at so  jlow a figure as   $50 an   acre and go  elsewhere to buy inferior land at two  or tnree times this price.  The problem is a big one, and no  doubt will require some time to bring  about any appreciable change. The  selling of a few blocks of land at a  sacrifice price will not alter conditions so deep seated.  MISREPRESENTATION  ENDERBY.

Umllad,.Montreal  In another column    we are "pleased  to. print a    communication from Mr.  Bernard Rosoman,.   of .Grindrod,   on  the question ol Land development, and  : closer settleriient of the  district.    At  i least,  this  is    what    Mr.  Rosoman's  'communication    leads  up to,  though  it is just possible   that    some- may  I take the view   that   Mr. Rosoman is  {jILLf'lliN, n3i!3(}6[ j taking" advantage  of  the correspondence columns of the   Press to advertise his  property    for   sale."    We do  not share in this thought.  Mr.   Rosoman  brings out the  point  most forcibly that   we have been attempting to    make in past references  to this    question.       He says he has  held this land    for    eight years, and  not an acre of the land has been tilled  though he has put on the place some  $500 worth    of    improvements.        In  this respect, Mn    Rosoman has done  -probab-^as-^nuith-^as^many���������������������������others**  who are holding raw land..     He may  have  done    more    than   some.      Thc  j land itself has produced nothing. Not  ; an acre of it has    been cropped.     IL  therefore  has    been  a    load   for  him  to carry, and not   only for him, but  thc community in general.   Ancl there  are many   thousands   of acres in the  district which, have bcen_ciuite. as.un-  profitably    employed.       Ancl an acre  of land, lying   close to every market  facility   that   is    producing  nothing,  becomes as much a detriment to the  community as   the individual  who is  given  good  health    and every  opportunity    Lo    work   and    will not earn  enough to pay his way.     Such an individual becomes of less value to the  community  each day he lives.   So it  is with unused  raw land.     Thc acres  and acres of   raw    bush    land which  have been permitted to lie year after  year have (lone    more    to discourage  prospective   settlers    in    thc district  than all else combined.     It is not so  difficult  Lo    account   for    the higher  prices to the south of us.     There thc  lands adjoining    that offered the  intending    purchaser,    are    seen   to  be  producing bountiful crops, and everything looks    prosperous.       Hundreds  if  not thousands  of    acres are being  planted  to orchards,    and  the object  of those growing    orchards and  producing  fields  is    a    great  encouragement to the man intending to buy.  Thc man who buys   a piece of farm  THBS  HOME  DYE  that  ANYONE  can use  We have read the report from the  Indian Agent on the general condi.  tion of affairs on the Enderby Indian  Reserve, as it has appeared for the  past three or four years in the  annual report of the Indian Department on   Indian    aPv.irs".    *  Rome years the report from the  Enderby reserve is embraced in a few  lines. At other- times it occupies  more lines. But the nature of each  report is identical with that preceding it, and that to follow. And in  each report, either from lack of  knowledge on the part of the Indian  Agent, or pure indifference, there is  more misrepresentation than fact.  Aid here is another piece of fact  from Ottawa that to one on the  ground reads like fiction. It does  not appear within the regulation blue  cover, and is therefore not "official,"  but it has about as much truth in it  as if it came with the annual Indian  report from the Department:  "Ottawa, Nov. 1.���������������������������Mr. Duncan  Campbell Scott, deputy superintendent-general of Indian affairs, reports  that the British Columbia Indians,  particularly in the Okanagan Valley,  in tbe Kamloops district and near  Lytton, "are making splendid progress  in fruit growing.'*'  It is to be hoped that, the Indians  farther south in the" Okanagan are  doing what this report from Ottawa"  states is true. But speaking for the  Indians on the Enderby reserve, ..they  have one small fruit orchard, planted  and pruned some fifte?n years ago by  Mr. Fortune. The progress that has  been made since is confined to the  growth oi these trees.  Here is the    last   official report to  the Indian    Department    on present  day conditions   on    the Enderby reserve.     It is to be found in the last  report on Indian affairs:  "Spallumcheen Band. ��������������������������� These Indians are Shuswaps. The reserves  of this band are three in number,and  are located on the shore of Mara  lake and along the Spallumcheen and  Salmon rivers, the area being some  9.G79 acres, which comprises some  first-class agricultural, grazing, hay  and timber land, which is rapidly becoming more valuable as settlement  increases=in*=the^Tcighbx)rh'bodr==Tlfe:  membership of this band is 168.  The general health of the Indians of  the Enderby and Salmon River band,  seems to be, on the whole, very good.  Their general appearance is certainly  indicative of good health. The houses  are, on the whole, well constructed  and   ventilated,    and    other  sanitary  conditions are good.  . _  __  "Thc Indians on these reserves farm  extensively, raising oats, wheat, oat  hay and roots, as well as timothy  and clover, and they have some exceptionally fine horses and cattle.  They are also fond of fishing and  'nintine, and quite a number work!  for others, both with their teams  nnd by themselves. They have a  fairly good class of farm buildings.

HER BEST CHRISTMAS  COME on along, Sandy; I'll  treat to dinner at the  Metropolitan!"  Sandy, a tall girl who  didn't look her thirty years,  was busy glancing over a type-.vriti.Oii  sheet and for a moment did not answer. Dob stood watching her, taking in the delicate lines of her face  and the beauty of the "sandy" fair,  which, when he was alone and forgot  that Sandy was a newspaper woman  and his "pal," he was pleased to caii  golden.

More than a sheet of copy had'been  holding her attention. But she caught  Bob's frown and immediately the  mother Instinct ln her was aroused.  She broke into her usual ' comrade  laugh.  . "All right, Bob. The Invitation  overwhelmed me. The Metropolitan?  But I couldn't  Bobby dear. My  shirtwaist is soiled and you yourself said there  was a hole in  m y beautiful  brown coat."

"Yes, Mary." The tones were perfectly calm. Six years of patient  waiting had not been without their  power.  "Margaret!"  "John!"  "I knew you would come. I saw  you last evening. I knew you would  find me.   Oh, John, I am so happy!"  Don't whine. Difficulties are only  for those who cannot climb.

Minister of Agriculture,   a distribution of  : superior sorts of grain and potatoes  ! will bc made the   coming winter and  spring  to    Canadian    farmers.      Thc  samples  for general distribution  will  'consist of spring wheat (5 lt>s) white  'peas (5 tbs.)     These will be sent out  'from Ottawa.     A distribution of potatoes (in 3 It), samples) will be car-  oats (4 lbs), barley    (5.lbs) and field  i-ied on  from    several   of the experi.  mental farms,    the   Central Farm at  Ottawa supplying   only the provinces  of Ontario and   Quebec.   All samples  will be sent free, by mail.  Applicants must give particulars in  regard to the soil on their farms,  and some account of their experience  with such kinds of grain (or potatoes) as they have grown, so that a  promising sort for their particular  conditions may be selected.       0  Each application must be separate  and must be signed by the-"-'applicant.  Only one sample of grain and one of  potatoes can be sent to each farm.  Applications on   any kind of printed  form cannot be accepted. If two or  more samples are asked for in the  same letter only one will be sent.  As the supply oi seed is limited,  farmers are advised to apply early;  but the applications will not necessarily be filled in the exact order in  which thcy are received. Preference  will always be given to the most  thoughtful and explicit requests. Applications received after the end of  January will probably be too late.  All applications for grain (and applications from the provinces of Ontario and Quebec for potatoes)  should be addressed to the Dominion  Cerealist, Central Experimental Farm  Ottawa. Such applications require  no postage. If otherwise addressed  delay and disappointment may occur.  Applications for potatoes, from  farmers in any, other province should  be addressed (postage prepaid) to the  superintendent of the nearest Branch  Experimental Farm in that province.  J. H.

I can  quite sec tnat the land should be cultivated, and if the owner cannot or  will not make it produce, he should  sell it to somebody who can and will.  Of course, the trouble for the, present owner is to find a prospective  farmer who is both willing and able  to purchase his unused land. Your  view that this desirable end may be  attained '~by reducing the price of-the  land, seems hardly likely to be correct, when we consider our experi-  enceTn "this valley, which has shown  us that year by year the high-priced  lands to the south of us have been  rapidly sold and settled while our���������������������������  by comparison���������������������������low-priced lands have  remained unsold.  However, your theory cannot be  proved or disproved except by practical test, so here goes: I have ten  acres of valuable river-frontage land  ���������������������������graded, trunk road at rear, adjoining my orchard, one mile from Grindrod railway station, school, post-  office, etc., ancl five miles from Enderby. There are $500 worth of improvements on the block-, consisting  of frame-building, fencing, and several acres of- clearing, unbroken. I  will sell this land to you, Mr: Editor  or anybohy else, "any time during the  next "three weeks, for $750. Taking  afl the value of the improvements,we  have here a raw land- price of ?25 per  acre. " Fifty dollars per acre-was  paid for this ten acres, in the raw  state, eight years ago, so I am surely offering it cheap enough.  I have never used this land, and am  not .likely to,,   so -if    you have the  confidence   begotten   of ..your convic-  -Vtions,' Air.   Editor, ��������������������������� and  really think  -��������������������������� that- cheap land ' .will, sell, why ..make  the test���������������������������print .th'is letter.     You "will  ,probably  have "several hundred  acres  offered you .'at half, price within the  'next few weeks.-' A.  "I, have advertised- this land .during  the past four - years, at' prices ranging from $l,000,.to~?l,500,' without're-  " suits,- and my .theory being .that it  was offered -too' cheap to attract attention, I was seriously \> considering  ���������������������������-" advertising it at $250" per acre.  . Of course, since our.object is to Develop the country, it is understood  that should your theory prove correct and the land be shown to be  . saleable at a low price, any person  purchasing at that price must enter  into an agreement -to" commence im-  - provement of the .land and residence  on same within six months.  " Yours truly, B. ROSOMAN.  A meeting of the Northern Okanagan Farmers' Institute was held at  Mara on Saturday, for the purpose  of drafting resolutions to be submitted to the Central Institute at  the annual meeting to be held early  next month, and to elect a delegate  to represent the Institute at the  Central meeting.  In the absence of President Little,  who was attending a meeting of the  directors of the Central Exchange,  at Vernon, Mr. R. Davy occupied the  chair. The following resolutions  were passed:  "Whereas, the Institutes are not in  a position to instruct their delegates  owing to the non-arrival of the*prin-  ted resolutions, or the small.-.number  received;  "Resolved--that-the -Department b  asked to have a sufficient' number of  resolutions printed so thkt each mem  ber may receive   a    copy in time to  do so." ' *"     "  "Whereas, owing to the, spread of  noxious weeds, especially thistles,  they are becoming a serious menace:  "Be it resolved, that the' Government' be urged to appoint competent  men as weed inspectors in unorganized districts, with powers to enforce  the Act." ^  "Resolved, . that the cutting of  weeds on public : roads, in the - unorganized districts.be done by the public roads department.'1'''  Whereas, a large expenditure of  public, money is annually made by  the Government for public roads in  unorganized districts in B. C, and.  owing to the lack oi oversight, there  is no uniformity of construction,  with the result of a large waste-of  public money," -   -  "Be it resolved, we suggest to the  Government that a walking boss or'  road master be appointed where feas-  able in unorganized districts, so that  a uniform system of road work of a  permanent character be' done, and  also to facilitate and investigate any  complaints" made by" "��������������������������� settlers',"- and",  further,-' that"- no discrimination be  shown to any settlers by' reason of  their ��������������������������� political or other opinions,- but  all settlers shair have an .opportunity,  to work on public work.''*"  "Resolved, that "in consideration of  the scarcity of homesteads in the  Railway BeltT the* Dominion Govern'  ment be asked.to take all,lands held  under timber licenses as soon as the  licenses expire, ,the same to be advertised and thrown open to-homesteaders."  Mr. C. S. Handcock, secretary of  the Institute, was elected delegate.  FIRST SEASON SATISFACTORY  At a meeting of the Grower s  Union at Summerland a few evenings  ago, Mr. Robertson, who has so successfully organized and handled the  Central Shipping Union for the fruit  and produce men of the Okanagan  this season, made a verbal report of  the season's business up to October  31st. Up to that date he had sent  out 536 cars of fruit, 354 of vegetables, and 51 of hay. This did not  include less than carload lots. To  that time $23,428.69 had been retained from the locals in addition to  all expenses, and besides a reserve  fund of 3 per cent, to be returned in  three years. This fund would have  been considerably increased at Nov.  30th. That he was confident of being able to refund practically half  the charges at the end of the shipping season was heard with both satisfaction and surprise, says the Summerland Review, as was Mr. Robertson's further remark that he did not  believe that the cost of marketing  through the Central would exceed 5  per cent, which was below the average on this continent.  His straightforward,- unreserved  treatment of the business, his readiness to admit error, and his suggestion of practical remedies for the  mistakes made this season, delighted  the local shareholders and confirmed  their reasons for the exceptional confidence which is placed by them in  Manager Robertson.  niimiinuiinimt tiMiitniuMintMiuiuitiuimiiiiiiiiMiiiitMnMiiiiiiiinwitiiiiMUimiifiHHin fnwuiH^inllg  i =  INVESTIGATION PLOTS  W.
