As Ralph Lntus, son of Mr. and
Mrs, R, Latiis of Coquitlam, "formerly of Wnllnch and, therefore,
well known In Agassiz," was returning from school and endeavoring to
Jump on a passing truck when ho
fell. Another heavy truck passed
over his body, causing dangerous Internal Injury. He was taken to the
hospital, where Dr. Sutherland performed an operation on him and,
according to the last report, he is
expected to recover.
The death of Mrs. John D'.ck has
been a great shock to her friends
and relations in Agassiz. Mrs. Dick,
with her husband and her three-
year-old twins—Veronica and John
—from Duncan, V. I„ wero visitors
of Mr. Dick's sister, Mre, Jambs
Dewar, to attend and take active
part In Margaret Dewar's wedding.
Mrs. Dick was taken ill, and on
Thursday morning, becoming alarmingly worse, was rushed to the ChllHwack Hospital and operated on,
but alas, unsuccessfully, as she died
the same day. Great sympathy ls
felt for the husband and babies, ns
well us for iRev. and Mrs. Ji^-es
Rev. Dewar and Miss Dick accompanied Mr. Dick and children to
Duncan, where the funeral took
place on Monday.
Progress depends on the existence of individual liberty;
liberty to interchange ideas and information, liberty to
speak and write, liberty to discuss. Does religion limit
a man's liberty to do these things ?

The Fraser Valler Milk Producers'
Association held its open air meeting on the Dominion Experimental
Farm, June 14th and was a huge
success. A beautiful sight on entering the farm., Mr. Hlcks, the superintendent, hail done everything to
accommodate the public. A place had
been marked with, a sign to park the
cars of which there were over a
hundred. The Association made arrangements to bring nil those coraiii';
across the river to Agassia by private cars, but finding the crowd so
much greater than they expected they
wore obliged to engage the whole of
Mr. Inkman's taxi service and kept
them running continuously.
Tables were set up under the trees
to accommodate those who wished
to get lunch, which was provided by
the ladies of the different churches
at 50c per head, and, when they
were all set It was surely a. sight,
both from the viewpoint of the artists and the hungry man. The local
merchants set uip booths where Fraser Valley Ice Cream and other commodities for the convenience of the
visitors were very much In evidence.
The first part ot the morning was
taken In seeing the many attractions
on this wonderful farm. Some feasted their eyes on the vegetable garden which was their particular hobby; others, the flowers, etc., and
others, again, the stock and many
other attractions which were educational, as welt as interesting.
At 11 a.m. a stock judging demonstration was given by Prof Hare
of the U. B. C, who gave a very nice
talk on type of dairy cattle, which
was very interesting.
Prof. McDonald, Live Stock Commissioner of Victoria, then placed a
class of nice heifers and asked the
audience for criticism saying "everyone has a right to his own opinion." Many questions were asked
and answered which were educational and very much appreciated
by dairymen and the general public. The majority then moved towards the lunch tables which were
more than ready for them. There
tho Fraser Valley Butter, MUk,
Cheese, in fact, everything Fraser
Valley which was possible, and
placed In a most picturesque spot
under the shade of a wonderful collection ot trees. Some bringing their
own lunches enjoyed exclusive picnics in secluded spots o fwhlch there
are many such.
At 1 p.m. a stock parade was given consisting of the farm horses,
cows, heifers, sheep and pigs, which
wns a grand sight. Here the services of many of the local farmers
had to be enlisted in order to have
sufficient help to lead tbe animals
nnd they seemed to rather enjoy
being able to assist in a parade,
which was so much appreciated. At
? p.m. Mr. O. R. Reade, chairman of
the Chiliiwack Locals, with the assistance of a megaphone, called the
crowd to the back steps of the farm
office to hear the different speakers,
remarking, "Follow me and you'll
wear gum boots."
The chair was occupied by Reeve
J. S. H. Morrow of Agassiz, who, In
opening, said he felt somewhat like
the bridegroom who, asked to make
a speech, stood up and plaelng his
hand on the bride's shoulder, said:
"Ladles and Gentlemen, this has
been sprung on me today," In behalf of the people I wish to thank
you for your presence and I hope
you wlll thoroughly enjoy yourselves,
I wish to thank Mr. Hlcks for his
kindness In throwing open this

With  that niorntfag's work a kooi!
start  had   been  made on  the  corral, j
und Ihey expected to have it complel-j
etl wlililn  two days.     Sergt. Melvin -
was  at.  the slable  feeding  his  horse!
when  they  returned  to  lunch.      He
was preparing for an early star! in the I
afternoon in order lo make one of his
official rounds of the Indian reserve
before returning to detachment quar-j
ters,    The three men who had accom* i
panied him in pursull of Hie outlaws
had gone back    directly    after   the
dance.     Mary met  them as they pn-j
Lered   the   house, and aitw greeting
them pleasantly she said!*11! hope you'

The evasiveness of Ronald's answer,
did not lend to appease Mary's mind,
or to allay her suspicions! that lie was
influenced by ;i certain sense of annoyance at  her. the cause of which
she could   not   understand.      Feeling

versa lions iu which she was concerned, had been somewhat, obtrusive,
since the late episode in which Ronald played so prominent a pari. And,
as. "Thus trifles light as air, are io
the jealous confirmation strong as
Holy Writ," little incidents, such as
this—some recalled from the past-
were confirmation lo him of Lhe news
—that their engagement was an accepted fact, and that he meant no
more to her than an ordinary friend.
It was wiili a heavy heart, though
with outward decorum, ihal he was
able to spend the hour of lunch time
in their company. It was a relief lo
him when, after lunch. Mary accepted with apparent pleasure the sergeant's proposal lo accompany him to
lhe Indian agency thai afternoon, a
turn in events lhat gave Ronald an
opening to withdraw gracefully from
their company.
The three days thai it took to finisli
Ihe corral succeeded each other with
monotonous regularity. Ronald ap
plied himself assiduously to the work
of its erecllon till completed. When
it was done. If wus a work that reflected credit on lhe skill and workmanship of its builders. It was large
and commodious, and built wiih a
strength sufficient to resist the stampede of any number of horses.
The sudden announcement of Ron-
old's Intention to leave was received
by both Mr. ana Mrs. Frnser with
open regret. Mis. Fraser especially,
who hud come to regard him witli a
certain amount of maternal affection,
such as she would have bestowed
on her own son, looked upon his proposed departure as she would have
done had the relationship really
existed. The next day. however, be-
Inp Sunday, they insisted on him delaying his departure until Monday.
Though he finally acceded to I heir
request. Sunday was the day he particularly desired lo be away from the
place. lie wished to avoid another
chance meeting with his successful
rival, who, he thought, would surely
take advantage of ihe day to visit his
affianced wife, Deference lo his
kindly hosl and hosless Induced him,
though so disinclined, to prolong his
stay over the extra day.
Wltal glleved him most of all was
the apparent indifference with which
this woman regarded him. During
ihe first days of their acquaintance
she was free, friendly and affable.
Lately she hud changed to an altitude
nf aloofness and a cool Indifference
tu him, thai was only tempered by the
uracimisness of common courtesy,
Wiih the -stupidity common to the
male of his species, he looked upon
this cool aloofness as being prompted
by feelings of unfriendliness, If not
Actual dUIJke. Instead of being buoyant and Sprightly as had been her
wont, she became quiet and retiring
in her altitude, He, In his turn,
looked upon her actions as being inspired by aversion of himself. Thus,
lhe breach that separated them became whal teemed fn him lo he an
IllSUpl Cable harrier between ihem.
The prolonging of his staj had seemed onl> to widen lhe breach and Increase his desire I'm** depurl lire,
M was late afternoon of his last
day on the Fraser ranch. He was
wnlldng leisurely along ihe beach allot- having taken a dip in lhe limpid
waters of the lake a Bhorl distance
away from lhe house when he saw
Mary, sin- was silting In lhe bow
of a bnui beached on the shore, and
seemed to be Hazing across the lake
In the direction of a large Island some
distance away. She did not notice
Komihl ut,ill he was quite close betide her. Qulckl> turning as she
nol Iced him she said: "Oti, Mr. MacRae, are you Interested in birds and
birds' nesl.s? I often sit and watch
lhe birds fly and circle around and
about the island, and think how in*
leresling il would be to go over there
and prowl around exploring the Island
and seeking the birds' nests. The
blue heron must have nesls there; and
I ufien wonder If lhe eagles we see
hovering and cll'cllng above have their
nesls there also. I think ii would
be Interesting, though a liitie danger
ous,  io go near lo where  their nest
"1 have never," said Ronald, "paid]
particular attention to the study of
birds, nor their habits In nesting, but,
if it would give you such pleasure, I
should consider it a greal privilege lo
accompany you over, and would gladly help you find thej]- nesls."
"(Hi, ihal would be lovely," she said.
"Ii Is quite early, and we have plenty
of lime ibis afternoon. 1 shall get
a few sandwiches and cakes to lake
with us aud then we'll enjo) a picnic
as well as an outing, M will be something io remember each other by when
you are gone," she added wiih a touch
of sadness.
"Miss Fraser, Ihere are manj Incidents in lhe shorl time of our acquaintance that will keep ihe memory
of you for years fresh in my mind,
and this ouling will nol. 1 hope, be
the least Imporlnnl of tlu m."
"Thank you; It is nice of you lo
say thai. 1 shall now go and prepare
our lunch while you an- getting the
boat ready."
While she was away, he hurried to
get Hie boal ready for Ihelr little trip.
By lhe lime she retUfued, he was iii
his place wiih the oars, ready to
start. She brought nol only sandwiches, but cakes and oilier delicacies,
also a jar of ten that she was able to
prepare quickly, as the kettle was on
the .stove nearly on lhe boil when she
went in. "See," she said, "Mr. MacRae, | have sandwiches, cakes, lea
and olher things lor a surprise. We
shall have u regular picnic." Her
old-iime note oi enthusiasm and her!
sprlghtllness seemed to have returned—a cheerfulness lhai was also commencing lu react on Ihe depressed!
spirits of Ronald himself.
Assisting Mary to the stern seal of
lhe boat, he then shoved it. out  free
of the beach, and laking the oars, he
pointed straight for the island.     Taking a point on the shore he was leav-j
ing by which to steer, he pulled out'
from the land.     The angle »t which!
he dipped  tho blades of the oars in
the water, the long easy swing of his
body as he pulled and the quick even I
flexion of his arms wiih which he fin-
lshed his stroke, indicated a skill in
oarsmanship that few possess.     The
boal glided over the water in answer
to his master strokes without appar-
enl strain on    the   oarsman.     Mary I
watched him as he rowed wiih an easy
swing of lhe body and marveled tooj
at his sense of direction, as, with unerring   skill,   he   steered   the   boat1
straight for the Island, without once|
turning around  to gel   his  bearings.!
He did not stop rowing until he was
close up lo the Island.
They skirted along its north shore,
which presented a steep clay embank
ment rising for about twenty feet
above the level of the water, with here
and there trees and brush leaning over
from above. Suddenly, as they skirled thus along the shore, an eagle flew
from the clay bank, out. of a hole partly concealed by an overhanging tree.
"There is one place we must explore,"
said Ronald, "for there the eagle must
have her nest."
They rowed along the shore till they
came to the east end of the island,
where on the pebbly shore they beached their boat. It was an Ideal spot
lo land. Between the pebbly beach
and the tree line stretched a grassy
slope where they had excellent shade
from the heat of the sun. Around
I hen. birds and water fowl of various
kinds and description, disturbed by
their landing, circled about. The more
timid, among which were a number of
blue heron, fj8G3e and mallar.ds, flew
away to the opposile shore, or over
Ihe hills beyond. Other species of
ducks of bright plumage rested in
flocks on the water some distance
out; lhe more curious, and the less
timid, sllll closer in. For a time
ihey watched these birds and noted or
commented on their antics as they
Hew away, circled aboul, or swam
around In the water.
Remote from the frequented haunts
of the sportsman and Ihe huntsman,
theso numerous species of wild water
birds, found in the solitude of the interior or tin: mountains, along the
shores and on lhe Islands of Its numerous lakes, an undisturbed refuge
place for lhe mating and the breeding
season of the years. This Island, situated as ll is in the middle ol' Hie lake,
and offering, as it did, additional
security ngalnsl lhe depredations of
ihe voracious coyote, ami the remorseless, cunning, destrucllveni ss of lho
slinking lynx and other wild animals
TEA "is -good tea'
and the choicest of Red Rose Teas is the
of prey of tim forest, was particularly favored as a plugs of refuge every
your by these birds, lis trees ami
fleep foliagi, offered ample space,
numerous recesses and protected retreats for (lie seerel nesting places
required by the natural procllWtles ol
such species ol birds as made it their
habitat. Here tin- subdued female
bum her nest, laid her eggs and then
patiently hatched her brood, while her
more stalely male disported himself
on the water, or preened his variegated plumugo as he sunned himself on
ballon, gravelly Islands nearby.
They watched lhe birds Ihus fulsome lime and then commenced lo
clrole ihe island along lis pebbly
lieaelics. Here and Ihere a Hushed
bird would betray Mm location of her
nest, and a search Immediately begun
would sometimes result In discovery,
but more often would resull In disappointment, Cunningly concealed in
lhe Brass or beneath overhanging
bushes, the exacl location often mystified tho searchers, while the antics of
the Hushed bird In her fantastic efforts
lo cnUce them away from the nest,
amused them greatly. Here, in front
of them as they proceeded, a pair of
Canada gray Reese waddled inlo the
water followed by Ihelr brood of
goslings, and swam away In single file,
the goose in the lead, the gander in
lhe rear, and casting occasional sidelong glances at the two strange intruders of their quiet haunts. Beyond, a mallard drake, watching witli
upstretched neck and body, issues a
warning "q'laok," to be followed Immediately by his flight followed by
others of his kind. Out on the water
floaled the nest of tangled twigs of the
careless grebe, with eggs half submerged In the water within; In the
grass, cunningly and neatly concealed,
lay the nest of the teal; benealh shading willows the more open nest of the
mallard; In holes In old stumps rested the nest of the wood duck, while
lightly swinging on the limb of a sapling tlie dainly hanging nest of the
oreole was discovered.
Curious as some of these discoveries
were, and Interesting as they all seemed, that which attracted .Mary's chief
attention was the sight of the two
bulky forms of blue herons' nests,
high up on the spreading branches of
a tall birch tree. She expressed her
wish to see them, and accordingly
challenged Ronald to climb up and examine Ihem. The climb, on account
of the low dowa thick branches, presented no difficulties, and he readily
accepted the challenge. Unexpected
by him, Mary followed on his heels,
and soon Ihey were both peering Into
the nest and examining tho blue eggs
of Ihe retiring heron. Amused at
their own escapade and clinging for
support to overhead branches, they
rested and chatted for a time on. lhe
swaying tree top. "This," said Ronald jokingly, "reminds me of Ihe 'Darwinian Theory,' which claims lhe
probability of the descent of man from
the apes, which, If true, means that
our ancestors used to have Ihelr abode
on lhe tree tops."
"I don't believe," she said, "thai we
ever descended   from   the  apes,  and
now I nm goln„' to descend this Iree
and look for the eagle's nest,"

London's Smart Set

Coach Owner Says Horses Coming
Back Into Favor
Tired of luxurious motor ears, many
members of London's sinai'l set aro returning to the horse carriage for shopping purposes and for driving In the
park. Many smart equipages arc
seen every day in llond Sin.el, May-

A well-known coach owner, who
regularly drives four horses In his

carriage horse Is coming back Inlo

Ihelr horses up to town from their
country residences, he said, and
others aro hiring carriages and

Some Modern Crusoes
Number of People Content to Live on
Lonely Islands
Census returns rerditly Issued in
Great Britain show a surprising number of instances of people who are apparently content io live Crusoe-like
lives on lonely Islands.

ex pie, has only    one   Inhabitant,
while Ilavorgato Island, off Easl sin-
folk, has a lotal population of two—■

A man and his wife live alone on

Kirkwall, ihere aro three people, and

There are tiny groups of male and
female Crusoes seal lered throughout
Ihe world. On Paling Island, In tho
Straits Settlement, are a handful of
people who live a lax-free life.
When Pellng first defied the tax collector an attempt was made to enforce

Minard's Liniment for Palling Out of
Lost Mine Re-opened
Old   Eureka   Mine   In   B.C.   Is   Now
Working Again
Every mining district seems lo have
its lost mines, but ll seldom happens
llial such a mine ls found aud re-opened, liriilsli Columbia's original lost
mine—lost lor fitly years or more—has
been found and work will begin Immediately to get out tho high-grade
silver ore.
II is what Is known as lhe old Eureka mine, search Tor which hits lured
prospectors for years. It Is eight
miles from the town of Hope, B.C.
General 1 W. Stewart and associates
are now owners of the mine and a
crew uf men and supplies have recently been senl In.
Tho lost Eureka was last
heard of In lho early '70's. According to tho story which has gone the
rounds of prospectors for years, It was
discovered by au Indian trapper, who
brought a chunk of solid silver Into
the then wild and woolly western mining town of Hope. Hope was then
lhe mecca for hundreds of adventurers from all over lho world, attracted
by the gold In the rich bars of the
Fraser River.
A company was formed iu which
were many men prominent In British
Columbia in those days. Cabins
were built and mining with crude
methods was undertaken. Considerable ore was taken out and shipped
to San Francisco to be treated. In
those days the ore had to be packed
from Ihe mine- to Hope on the backs
of Indians.
Even with the tremendous trans-
portal Ion cost the mine paid until
the owners got into difficulties and
with the gold rush turned elsewhere
interest in that part of the country
waned and the old niln: was finally abandoned.
Then It became lost to memory as
far as Us exact location was concerned, but the/ "lost mine" story remained to be often told by old-timers and
given little credence by those who had
heard stories of that kind before. That
the mine r.ially existed was a mailer
of record In the archives ot the province.
About three y-jars ago A. S. Williamson, while hunting, discovered
the old camp and workings. He in
terested his firm—Foley, Welch and
Stewart—In the discovery and engineers were sent lu and gave the
property a thorough examination.
Belief ls expressed by those In
charge of development work that the
Eureka will be a bonanza silver mine.

Vast Sum Sunk in Oper
ation of Province's Pulp
■and Paper Industry
lliitlsli   Columbia   Only   Cute   Onc-
Tlimisaniltli Pan of Her Pulp
Wood Annually
It Is estimated that the huge sum
of 150,000,000 ls Invested In the
manufacture of pulp and paper in
British Columbia which is one of the
great divisions of the Forest Products industries of this province.
British Columbia possesses the finest stand of high grade pulp wood In
the world. The quantity ls placed
at 180,000,000,000 ft. or 256,000,-
000 cords.
In 1922 the plants of British Columbia converted 274,000 cords or
roughly a thousandth part into the
manufactured product. Yet British
Columbia produced 9.2 per cent, of
nil the pulp and 9.6 per cent, of all
tho paper in the Dominion of Canada.
Pulp and Paper
In 1922 the pulp and paper Industry nf British Columbia employed 1823 persons in its plants alone
with an annual payroll of (3,578,-
000 and spent considerably over $3,-
000,000 In the purchase of supplies..
In addition the logging of the raw
material employs many hundreds of
men and" greatly adds to the Industry's payroll.
Enormous sums are spent annually In renewals of machinery, enlargement of plants, and In keeping the processes up to the latest
scientific standards.
The establishment of a modern
pulp and paper plant entails the expenditure of several million dollars.
The growth of an Industry vast
enough to keep nace with our increasing pulpwood supply is only a
question of creating taxation conditions that will encourage the Investment of the huge sums needed.
This series of articles communicated by the Timber Industries
Council   of  British  Dell
Haney has had occasion for many
years to feel great pride In its leading mercantile firm, tho E. T. Matchett Co., Ltd., of which Mr. Matchett was esentially proprietor. The
phenomenal success of the firm Is
found In the fact above that the
management was at once down-to-
date, obliging and ever sought to
serve. Popularity marked alike the
store and Its proprietor. While regretting the loss to business of Mr.
Matchett. the entire patron list will
be pleased tn know that be is taking
a well-earned and much-needed rest,
and when again venturing upon a
commercial career, he will have the
good will and wishes of all.
To the public there ls the compensation that the same wise, popular
service wlll be continued and, all
patrons may rely on that full measure of courtesy to which they have
always been accustomed, for the
members of the new firm aro, for

that the Conservatives In the last

Canada's Substantial Advantages
Canadian Farmer Has Many Advant-
# ages Over Farmers In U.S.
In his recent report on the wheat
situation made to President of the
L'nited States, Henry C. Wallace, secretary of the United States department nf the Interior, stales: "The Canadian wheat farmer enjoys substantial advantages over tlie American
producer In the matter of yields, land
values, the quality of wheal he produces and lower freight rales from
points equally distant from markets.
Tlie yield of wheal Is materially higher in Western Canada than in many
of the wheat producing stales of the
United Slates. The average yields of
spring wheal in tlie prairie provinces
during the len year period 1913-1922
varied from 15 to 16 bushels per acre.
In Minnesota, North Dakota, South
Dakota and Montana for the corresponding period they ranged from 10.0
lo 14.3 bushels. These figures do not
reflect the losses resulllng from abandoned acreage."
"The capital invested In land ls also
materially lower In Canada than In the
United States," states Secretary Wallace. The average value of farm
lands ill 1922 for Canada as a whole
was $40 per acre as compared with
$79 for the United Stales. In the
prairie provinces of Canada average
land values ranged from $24 to $32 an
acre; lu eleven of the western wheat
slates the range was from $46 to $110.
It is evident that the American wheat
farmer has a much heavier per acre
investment in burden. It ls quite apparent that the Canadian fanner has
advantages which enable him to produce wheal at materially lower costs
per bushel than the American farmer.

Manitoba, according to Premier
Bracken, no longer carries all lis eggs

Indian Treasure Hidden at Bon Echo
Fraser Valley Milk Producers

creatures and this one in particular
was unusually so. The banker In
question had an artificial eye of
which he was very proud, as no one
had been able to distinguish it from
the natural one, go he agreed to give
the loan provided Sandy could tell
him which it was. After some study
Sandy said It is the "left em." The
banker was very much surprised and
asked why he picked on the left
eye, to which he answered, because it
looks a wee bit more sympathetic
than the other. Therefore, we are
in favor of bankers having two artificial eyes. (Laughter).
Speaking of dairy cows he said
the herd on the Experimental Farm
was a wonderful group, (1600 being the original output for the start
of the herd. Now there ls a deal
pending in which more than twice
that amount is Involved in the sale
of one heifer calf. He was sorry to
say there Is only 50 per cent, of
the bulls In the valley which are
registered, the general opinion being that It Is cheaper to buy dairy
cows than to raise them. In this he
did not agree and it will only be a
short time when good dairy cows
will be very scarce.
Mr. Parke, President and General
Manager of the Association, expressed himself as being highly honored
In standing before such a large audience. A great deal of credit is due
Wm. Henley and G. H. Smith of Agassiz for organizing the scheme.
The Fraser Valley organization li
the backbone of the Valley today.
They have been under great difficulties, as, although last year working full capacity, are now forced to
handle 7 to 8 hundred cans more
this year. Vancouver, although being
their main market, can handle only
25 per cent, of the whole milk, therefore, they are forced to put the rest
on the world market in the form of
butter, cheese, Ice cream and condensed milk (Pacific and Borden
Brand). Owing to their lack of handling capacity they had to dump 400
cans of skimmed milk in the gutter, which is a loss of about $100
a day.
To increase the demand, the organization has canvassed the city on
their own wagons and from 8000
lbs. of butter per month they have
increased to 46,000 lbs. per month
but do not intend to stop at that.
This eliminates the middleman-
Ladles do 90 per cent, of the buying, so It's up to them to see Fraser
Valley products are used in the
house. What helps the association
helps us all. At present 2000 mem-
mors are using 4000 lbs. of butter
per month, meaning 2 tbs. a month
for each member, not showing a very
great fondness for butter. He also
said the F. V. M. P. A. control 60
per cent, of the dairymen in the valley. They have 200 new members
this year and some old members who
left havo come back. Mr. Henley,
secretary Agassiz local, called, "Agassiz has 100 per cent." As everf-
thlng Is working over capacity, if
going to carry on with 100 per cent,
efficiency must build a utility plant
In tho valley which means the Investment of a large sum nf money—
a quartor of a million dollars, llul
Iho wonderful organization Justifies
the expenditure and It would pay for
Itself very soon. He also said Ag'
asslz and ChllHwack could finance
It If they chose.
Wo should have a few moro of
these gatherings and stimulate a
spirit of friendship amongst us all.
Committees, associations and our
government, as well, would be the
hotter for It, as with better understanding the difficulty vanished.
Mr. Macken wns then called and
said tho principal thing was for each
member to understand that the association does not belong to tho seven
directors alone, but, is their business as woll. Each should, therefore,
Ibe us vitally Interested In making It
n success, nnd lot no members got
away, If your next door neighbor Is
going Into tho dairy business, see
that ho Joins. Encourage anyone who
Is not satisfied, to come to headquarters and come to a proper understanding. The directors, mentioned previously, are as follows:

Long before Jacques Cartier sailed up the St. Lawrence
to discover Hochelaga, a now-forgotten race of people
were making pilgrimages to the Big Rock towering above
the waters of Lake Mazinawe in Eastern Ontario to
observe religious ceremonies, to worship before this
great natural altar and to propitiate the gods who dwelt
within its granite mass. In the backwoods now, five
hundred years ago the Big Rock of Bon Echo was in the
center of the greatest white pine forest the world has
ever known and on a main highway between the north
and Lake Ontario. There were no backwoods In those
days, and the streams were the travel routes for the
pagan people who followed the seasonal migrations of the
animals with which the forests teemed.
To them the Big Rock at Bon Echo must have been
a thing of mystery, as it remains today both to arche-
ologisls and geologists. None can reconcile the sheer
untouched face with the glacial markings along its top,
and in the same way the paintings along the face are an
unsolved riddle. "Who put them there"? and "what
do they mean"? are unanswered questions. Along
the face of the Big Rock a few feet above the watcrline
are the hieroglyphic records of an unknown people.
Fainted in a virtually imperishable paint, whose composition is unknown, and which has defied the weathering
effected of wind and water, these records baffle the
archeologists of the continent. *
Whether they have a warlike or religious significance is
not known, although some people hold that they record
a great victory of the Iroquois over the Hurons and
Algonquins and have been written in some Involved
and mystic code.
A more conservative Interpretation claims that the
paintings of the Big Rock are trail marks, records of the
bunt, signboards for other travellers. The natives of the
backcountry claim that they hold the secret to the
treasure cave located in the Rock, and that the solution
of their riddle would open the entranceway to the long
lost silver of the Indians.
From Brockville to Trenton, on the shores of Lake
Ontario, the legend of Meyer's Cave has long persisted.
The hint of such a cave first came when the Indians
from the country to the north brought in bars of native
sliver to exchange for food and firearms. For years they
refused to discuss the source of their wealth with anyone,
but in time, a trader by the name of John Meyers, who
had been brought up in association with Indians, was
able to ingratiate himself into the confidence of two
members of the tribe and in exchange for liberal quantities of fire-water, they agreed to conduct him north.
Late in the fall they set out, made their way up the
Moira and Skootamatta Rivers, portaged from Lou-
mishtigouche Lake into Lake Mazinawe and came to the
Big Rock. Conflicting stories tell of Meyers actual find.
One tells of a fissure between two hune masses of rock, a
long entranceway through which tho trader crawled,
and of a cavern at its end. When the fat pine torches
carried by his drunken guides Illumined the interior
Meyers found himself inside nn irregular cube fifty
feet in size and along whose sides were piled rough cast
bars of native silver, as one piled cordword.
The trader took what quantities of the metal he could
place in his knapsack and in his pockets, and departed,
making as accurate a mental record of the location of the
entranceway as he could. His companions would not
allow him to blaze a tree, or to place a cairn, for by this
time they were becoming frightened over their betrayal
of the secret. The small party set out for home but
crossing the lake at the headwaters of the Skoot River,
their canoe was swamped by a heavy storm, and the
Indians abandoned Meyers who had made his way to
shore with difficulty. In order to save himself from
drowning he was forced to throw away all but a small
quantity of silver carried in the pockets of his coat.
Without food, his firearms gone, ill, wet and hungry he
reached Belleville after ten days hardship. As a result of
the exposure he took pneumonia and died in the course of
few months.
It is an improbable story but one thing is certain. In
the Meyers family there are spoons made from the silver
he brought down with him. He left a map, drawn from
memory, and in time this fell into the hands of a lawyer,
George Merrill, who went north and relocated the cave,
in company with another man. Loth to divulge the discovery, he did nothing for some years and when he did
return the fires had swept through the backcountry and
had altered its typography to such an extent that he was
never able to locate it again.
Several comfortable fortunes has been spent trying
to locate the cave. One man lived for fourteen years on
top of the Big Rock going ever every square inch of it.
time and time and again, certain to the day of his death,
that his perseverance would be rewarded. Today in a
sheltered hollow there are a few rotting logs at right
angles to mark his home.
Another expedition spent thousands of dollars scraping
the earth off the central portion of the rock.in a vain search
for the cave. Once or twice every summer a group of old
prospectors will appear at Bon Echo Inn, and armed
with pickaxes and hammers, will mysteriously disappear
up the iron staircase mounting the Big Rock, certain that
at last they are going to find the lost millions. A day or
two later they creep down the staircase, climb silently
aboard the Canadian Pacific train, and go home as they
have come, without the treasure. 9
And over all the Big Rock watches as it has watched a
millions years, serene and indissoluble.
