KITAMAAT, B. C.
July, 1903.
REV. C. M. TATE OF COW1CHAN MI3BIOX B.C.
The Rcv4 C. M. Tate is eoinpara*
tively a young man, though he
ranks as a veteran in the missionary cause to which he has devoted
his life and in which he has "'een
and   still   is eminently  successful.
He is assisted by Mrs. Tate, an
accomplished Jady, who was the
first missionary of the W. M. S. to
Port Simpson. She is hardly second
to her husband in her interest and
zeal for the missionary cause.
Mr. Tate has charge of the
Cowichan mission and thoroughly
Understands the Alkomaylum Ian-
guage. He has compiled a very
useful dictionary of the Chinook
jargon. DEACONESS  WORK. ,
AMONG THE INDIANS,
B? Htv. U, M, TatK
It is a fact that the Indians lire
adopting our mode o. living, our
kind of clothing, and our style of
house, yll of which are a decided
improvement! on those of their own^
but they are in many cases worse
off than when in their pagan condition, for they are ignorant of the
proper use of many of the things
which they have adopted.
At one of our missions an Indian
built a nice new house, and put all
the windows in fioiit, ''lor', i=aid
he, s'if I put any in the back of the
house people would not be able to
see them/' And when the house
was -finished-lie mu&t have white
man's furniture, so he brought
home a fine bedroom suite, with
marble top table, bureau, and wash
stand, but the bedstead was the on*
ly article which found its way to
the bedroom, the other articles all
being.placed in the general living
room where visitors would be able
to see them. T he marble slabs were
excellent places for putting cooking-
utensils and dishes, whilst drawers
were gi'-aid receptacles for fish eggs
dry salmon and articles of food.
Then in the cooking of food and
washing of clothing, there is utter
lack .of simple, hygienic principles.
The same may be said regarding
the treatment ot children, both sick
and well, so that 1 am safe in stating that only, the strong survive
as the sick have generally been
turned over to the tender mercies of
the medicine man,
Now if a deaconess could go into
these homes, and give them instruct;
ion in simple, cooking, washing,
housekeeping, and. the care of child.
ren, a grand missionary vyork would
be accomplished and the religious
condition of the people would thus
receive a great uplift,
For some years past we have
been'pleading with our General
Board of Missions and the W. ||
8. to supply us with deaconesses*
and we are hoping that this most
important work will receive due attention in the very near future.
HOME    LEiTEii
BY Mi*s Long.
Since I last wrote for Nanakwa 1
have had the very happy experience
of meeting loved ones at home/
the ladies of the 'W, M. 6/, many
kind friends, also a delightful
rest and two pleasant journeys, t
am only just beginning to realize
what all this meant to me, I return
to my work with' renewed strength
and energy quite ready to take it
up again, As I arrived at iOp.
m,, the girls could not meet me
on the wharf but they were wait*
ing in the sewing room to bid mtf
welcome, they all looked so well
and happv it was a pleasure to
meet them again, After slinking
hands and exchanging a few words
we thanked God for his goodness
by singing "Praise (iod from whom
all blessings flow",'
The next day we had the reunion
of "Jld Girls" and their husbands
so I had the pleasure of meeting
them all together,
There were many improvements
in the Home grounds made during
my absence, several large stumps
were removed and potatoes planted
the girls took much pleasure in helping with the garden they wanted to
surprise me by having so mueb
done when I returned,.
hSB 1
Another great improvement is a
neat woven wire fence round the
garden in place of the rough picket
one the girls put up two years age.
A cover and walk from wood shed
to the well is a great comfoit
especially in wet weather, and last
but not lest is a chicken house in
habited by 6 fowls and 21 little
chicks we are all very much interested in the chickens.
1 would like to thank kind friends
for gifts to the Home. —
Mr. VV. Lloyd Wood sent a very
generous supply of medicine which
I have found a great h< lp already.
Mr. Pyne for Ferrol God Liver Oil
three girls are taking it with good
results, on one especially I notice
a change for the better.
One bale of underclothing was
very much appreciated.
School supplies were sent from W.
J. Gage Co and the Copp Clark Co.
these are very much needed and a
great help.
So much has been said about the
wood carts for Kitamaat, I am sure
you will be glad to hear they quite
come up to tny expectation, they
are useful in so many ways not
only for drawing wood but freight.
I also brought four violins and
one autoharp I have only had time
to give the girls two lessons on the
violin as we are busy practicing
for the entertainment which i§ to be
given when the people return from
the cannery. They were delighted
at the prospect of learning the
violins. After the first lesson they
were very much excited and said
they knew every thing, they did
not think quite so much of their
knowledge after the second, they
found it so hard to hold their
violins and hands properly but I
am sure they will get on quickly,
they are so fond of music, after
the holidays  we shall start regu
lar lessons.
THE HOME.
The home is something good foi
boys and girls 1 should like to sta^
there always.
Miss Long Miss Jackson and Mi*.
Baker i \ onr teacher we learn even
thing what is good for us to lean
house cleaning, knitting and sewing
and Bible reading every evening.
We  have   been  gardening   thi
spring we have a big garden at th.
back of the home and at the front i
is growing very quickly and nicel
we like to have a walk and look a
it every night  after  supper.    W*
been working at it last night.
Martha Brown,
(kwunhwulaks).
With sincere regret we chronic!
the death of our young frien*
Willie Mckay an old home boy wh.
died in May after a long painfu
illness. The missionary was awav
attending conference in Victori
when he died. The boy sent I
very pathetic message by his mo
ther. "Say good bye to Mr. Rale>
forme. I want you to tell him I
am happy and I will always pra-
to God to bless him. I have seei
Jesus and many people robed i
white, they do not need blankets o
shawls, such things are too heav;
for them, they have white clothin-
there, Jesus is with them all th«
time".
We have never met anyone wh
was so cheerful in long weary houi
of lingering and painful disease.
Mr. C. Moore has been employe
at the mission this summer.
Thomas Amos returned to Coqur
lcetza Institute in May. COMPOSITIONS
One of the contributions we are
glad to print below is written by
one Elvina Oliver, of the Girls'
Home, Alert Bay, and was kindly
handed to us by Miss Edwards the
matron. Dolly Robinson is of the
Port Simpson Girls' Home. Her
story was written on the steamer
as she was returning to the Home,
She handed it to Mrs. Raley. All
former teachers will appreciate the
story, knowing Dolly.
All are without correction.
DAY SCHOOL.
Alert Bay, B. C.
May 21st, 1903.
My Dear Miss Loxton,
I have great
pleasure in writing these few lines
to you to tell you what has been
going on. Mrs. J. Provost has a
little baby girl born on 18th of
May. We had a grammar lesson
this morning we learnt ihe adjective and made up twenty sentences
with an adjective in each. There
were only seven this morning in
school we home girls, Louisa and
Wazadalaka and no boys.
On Sunday we w.ent for a walk
before church in the morning and
Regina kept on trying to go after
the geese but I held on to her collar,
Toby had a collar on on Saturday.
We had a missionary address given
on Sunday afternoon there was a
collection for the Chinese Mission
and in the evening Stephen took
the Kwakwala service in school.
There are some fanny things
about China we read about today
in the fifth reader. Chinese never
write the language which they
speak and never speak that which
is written. The rich people have a
soup made out of birds nests. Chinese do not shake hands with their
friends but with themselves. In
China the streets have funny names
we only know two of them which
are "Bad smell Street" and ''Dogs
tail Street" most of the people in
Canton live on the river in boats,
I am your loving friend,
Elvina Oliver,
A GOOD STORY
FOR
BOYS AND GIRLS.
Ones upon a time there Was a
little girl named Grade her mother
told her not to be meddling with
the dishes the naughty little girl
went on playing with the dishes
and got herself into trouble it is the
way with some of us we dont listen
to what good people say to us please
dear companions let us try and obey
it is so much better to obey, 1 am so
pleased to have meet with the mis«
sionaries they are kind friends. I am
glad to say that I am on my way
back to Port Simpson and hope to do
better when I get back to tne Home
and also some of the boys and girls
who are in good Home.
Written by Dolly Robinson.
HOLIDAYS.
I like to go for a walk when we
have our holidays and I like to have
a picnic and play games which every
body that are with me could enjoy.
When the people are away we
always have a good time playing on
the side walk and picking berries,
I think school wont close until the
end of July and then we will have
our holidays and we will go for lots
of walks and picnics and pick some ML..,  1 -:  .JliU
^nu^
wild flowers.   .
"When the people comes back from
the cannery and then we will have
our concert before we go out of the
Heme and some of the people will
go up to the old Village to get some
salmon and then we will go up to
the Home were we can learn more
about fancy work house cleaning.
*L.iaKIE AMoS-
(GlLHUJNOHULTK).
HOLIDAY,
i should like to go out camping
when we have our holiday, where
I shall enjoy myself doing whatever I want to do, Sometimes I
like to go with the other girls for a
walk and have a fine time and
played some games, sometimes we
would go to the woods to pick some
pretty flowers and listen to the
birds that are singing on the trees.
In summer we have a nice time
picking berries and playing on the
side walk and places were we went
for picnic and sat on the beach and
watch the water, sometimes we all
take off our boots and go in the
water and before we came home
We all run around.
I hope that I will have a good
time again this summer when 1
go out for my holiday.

EXAMINATION.
By M iss ,Atkins ._
The Annual School Examination
was held the 18th. and 19th. days
of June. It consisted of four session three of these were taken up in
written examination.
The children worked diligently
and well.
The same under current of excite-
ment, the same anxiety to have all
questions answered before ''Time"
was called prevailed as in white
schools. As the hour for handing
in papers drew near, the nervousness of some was distressing.
One girl would be frantically chewing the end of her pen; another engaged in a vain endeavor to iind
her pencil; others staring gloomily
at the black board, the expression on their laces plainly saying
"I'm not half finished yet".
But at last the strain was over for
them and they were able to console
or congratulate one another as to
their failure or success. The girls'
papers presented a creditable appearance, both in neatness and accuracy.
More than ever the boys show
their need of consecutive schooling;
while the questions they answered
were accurate, there was not the
same thoroughness and good Eng.
lish, as displayed by the girls.
The fourth was an open session,
to which the parents and friends of
the scholars were invited.
We had the school room nicely
decorated for the occasion.
Mr Raley examined all classes,
orally.
Considerable interest was manifested in the spelling contest,
Nancy showed her superiority by
spelling correctly every word given
her. It was a close tie between her
and Minnie.
After singing a bright cheerful
hymn, Mr Raley dismissed with the
benediction.
Miss Long returned after nenrly
ten months abs?nce, on the 18th of
June.

—— REV. R. W. LA.RGE M.D. OF BELLA BELLA MISSION,
Dr. Large, son of Rev. R. Large
of the Toronto Conference was born
at Orangeville, Ontario, in 1873. He
matriculated from Weston High
School, and attended Toronto University a year. He taught two
and a half years, entered Trinity
Medical College, graduated with
honors at the end of four years and
was engaged as house-surgeon in
Toronto General Hospital for a year.
He came to British Columbia in
July '98 and spent the summer in
medical mission work on the Fraser
River. He passed the Provincial
Medical Council's examination in
Victoria and proceeded to Bella
Bella in November.
The following spring he was
married to Miss Bella M. Geddes of
Toronto, Fellow of the Conservatory
of Music. Dr. Large was ordained
for special purposes by the B.C. Conference at Nanaimo 1899 and spent
the summer at Steveston on the
Fraser, m
Both Di*. and Mrs. Large are
extremely well liked on the Coast.
Mrs. Large is a brilliant pianisie,
the Doctor possesses a rich baritone
voice which is always in demand
wherever he travels bince coming
to the Coast he has clearly proven
his skill as a physician not only to
men's bodies but also to their souls.
Bella Bella is one of the oldest of
our missions on the Coast. In 1901
the old siie was vacated and the
people moved to the new town a
short distances off, where a mission
house, school house and hospital
have been built.
Dr. Jackson, a fine worker, was
the hist inediear missionary at Bella
Bella, but he was forced to leave
thiough ill health,
The horspnal is the result of Dr.
Large s enterprise and energy.
He fcUperinlends it and <.lso the
summer branch hospital at River's
Inlet. The latter was built by Rev.
Thos. Crosby and Dr. A.E. Bolton
in 1897, the expenses being met by
private subscriptions and donations
of $> 100 from each of the canneries.
It has accommodation for nine or
ten patients and annually receives
support from cannery managers,
employees and fishermen.
The funds to begin the erection
of the Bella Bella Hospital were surplus fees saved from Steveston,
Bella Fella and River's Inlet practice. The Indians gave four or five
hundred days of free labor. The
hospital fund supplying food.
The Hospital was opened in October 1902. It is a cottage building
64ft. x 24ft. containing male and
female wards, one private ward,
anaesthetic and operating rooms,
small room for surgical supplies,
kitchen, bath-room, with two rooms
and large store room for the nurse.
There is room for seven patients
down stairs. Miss Kissack the nurse
Is supported by the W. M. S. she
has proved most efficient her approaching departure is sincerely
regretted. Her place will be filled
by Miss S. E. Alton, now of the Port
Simpson Hospital.
The value of the Bella Bella Hos»
pital and furnishings amounts to
over $2500, there is a deficit $740
borne by the superintendent, The
hospital is in a sense self supporting,
the Prov, Government gives some
assistance and though no public
appeals have been made, some of the
people of the coast have contributed
to the building and maintenance,
Mr. and Mrs, R. Dranev of Namu'
in particular, have handsomely furnished the private ward,
The building is on mission ground
and belongs to the church, it is insured for $ 1500 in favor of the Missionary Society, cost of insurance is
met by the hospital,
The nurse is assisted by an Indian girl in the kitchen who gains
a knowledge of simple nursing, she
receives $60 a year besides uniform
and aprons.
The Hospital has a good start und
graduallv will be more completely
furnished The W. M. S. and T. C.
E. L. which supports the missionary
have supplied bedding, linen, etc.
The Young Men's Bible Class of
St. Paul's Church, Toronto, donated
the operating table. Some of the
present needs are, more complete
equipment of the operating room,
bath, kitchen sink, couch, dresser
and wash stand for  nurse's  room.
It is aimed to have the Indians
pay a.little for their medicines and
treatment, they appreciate them
more and learn independence. The
Hospital is open to all, and as it is
on the steam boat channel, patients
are  frequently   brought  by   boat.

v INDIAN   MAIL   CA&fclEfcS   AT   KITAMAAT.
The methods are many and var*
lous by which His Majesty's mails
are carried from place to place.
Ocean greyhounds, imperial flyers,
electricity*, steam, wind,v pneumatic
tube and cycle, canoe, camel, elephant, reindeer, dog and man are all
requisitioned and used with much
skill and wisdom for the safe convey*
ance of our letters to the uttermost
parts of the earth.
Our illustration represents quite
a primitive way "packing" on snow-
shoes. The two mail bags on the
snow contain 60 lbs. of mail, letters
only, for gold-miners, prospectors
ranchers and missionaries scatter-,
ed throughout the district drained
by the Skeena River.
The two men Joseph Mai wain
and Stephen Morgan, stalwart Indians from  Meanskinisht  mission
on the Skeena, are the couriers be»
tween Kitamaat and Hazelton, the
former place being on the coast is
the point at which the mails are
received from the C. P. R, mail
steamers, the latter Is the central
point of distribution and is about
130 miles in the Interior.
The picture was taken at the
Kitamaat mission, as they are about
to start on their long tramp. The
building at the end of the fence is
the mission school, The cage like
affair to the right of the picture is
the thermometer shed of the meteorological department. Notwithstanding the wintry aspect of the
scene, the Kitamaat climate is as
healthy as that of any section of
the North West Coast. g^^W^:
ANNUAL FAIR
AND EXHIBITION.
The Ki'am iat Agricultural and
Horticultural Society will hold its
second Exhibition in the school
house at the mission, weather permitting on Wednesday the 3'>th.
of September at 2 o clock p. m. If
the weather pioves unfavorable the
first fine Wednesday following will
be the day.
This year in addition to vege
tables, fruits and flowers, there will
be a mineral exhibit from mines
and prospects in the vicinity of
Kitamaat. This exhibit will be most
interesting, especailly as the Kitamaat country in the near future
will be the centre of great mining
enterprises. The minerals will be
in charge of Messrs Steel and Dunn
of the "Golden Crown" group of
mineral claims. There will be a
special prize for the best collection
of pressed and mounted wild flowers, leaves, mosses, ferns, fungi, sea
weeds, also for the best mat or
basket made by the Kitamaats.
All who have the interests of this
country at heart are invited to
help and make a success of this
undertaking.
XMAS  SOCVENIR ALBUM.
We are issuing a very pretty
souvenir album for Xmas. somewhat larger than that of last year.
It contains pictures of Kitamaat
and its mission work, also views in
the vicinity.
It is printed on starch paper with
colored cover, very much like imitation leather, the back is stapled
ortied with silk ribbon,

Mr. and Mrs. Raley and children
went to Victoria in May by S S.
Danube and returned by S. S. Tees,
both pleasant trips, the officers were
most cou r teous. Con ference and the
W. M. S. Branch were in session.
It is always cheering to meet
with friends in the south.
We were particularly pleased to
have a chat with Mrs. Dr. Fife of
Peterboro, Ontario.
At the "Golden Crown" mineral
claim, where work is proceeding
steadily, a fine looking ore shoot
has been discovered, in tunnel No.
2, about 140 ft. below the outcrop
on the surface.
In splitting a block of spruce, at
the mission house, taken from a tree
50 years of age; there was found
embedded in the heart, a pine cone
in a perfect state of preservation
In the centre of another block an
old fashioned bullet was found we
can easily understand how the bullet got there but how the pine cone
came to be completely encased in
solid wood is rather puzzling.
