of thc Woman's Institute, and was
well attended, a number ot guesth
eoinxg from Vancouver, Sardla and

K. Henshaw and Mr. Jack Inkman tu
furnish tlie music, but Mr. Inkman
being unable to attend, sent a splendid substitute In Mr. E, Ba;ber, of
Vancouver, so with the piano and

that could be wished for. The prize

Balloon Waltz almost ended in a
broken leg as well as1 broken balloon,
ns they all guarded their balloon so
well, eve; yone as well as the musicians were tired before It came to a
finish, but was finally won by Miss

between three couples, therefore a

Miss M. Dewar and Mr. Stanley Wilson, Miss Owen Stow and Mr. W.

School Board is Vigilant
At the Agassiz School Board meeting held in the Central School, March
1st,  the full Board was in attendance
The usual business, such as teachers' salaries and accounts, were passed  for payment.
Tho application for 11000 for a
shelter and playhouse for the children was turned down by tbe Council,
also appoprtatluns lor conveying a
few children from outside districts.
This matter was fully discussed, and
ii was finally decided, owing to no
appropriation forthcoming; and, as It
left a wide scope for various other
expenditures frof other quarters, it
was decided to drop the matter, and
that Mn. Chaplin be notified that
tho.n* would be no further amount
granted   for  that  purpose.
Mrs. H. Haslam and Mrs. K. Crow-
attended the meetlsg with various requests, one of which was for a school
at the Harrison Hot Springs, as the
distance of five miles was considered too fan to send small children.
The Board thought their cances very
remote at present for having a small
school at the Springs, also that the
Government discouraged the building
of rural schools when school facf 1I-
ties of go high an order as Agassiz
wene available.
They also wished that more British
and Canadian history be taught1 in
schools. The Board were very pleased
to have visitors, and nil matters pertaining to order and education were
freely  discussed.

BANK  ROBBEKTES
Of Inte the mosl nudnoioiis nnd
d;irin?r bank robberies are fnllowhur
each other in place nfler plnce ami
tbe cud is nol yet, It Is ns though
nn epidemic of such atrocities were
set for the civilized lands. Hut the
nnia/im; part is the success with
which these robberies nre conducted.
This bri.'i'  referent un  bul   deal
with one phase, thnt of protecting
tho money from lhe robbers. The
way money has been convoyed from
one bsmk to another seems us though
opportunity were especially afforded
for depredation. No precaution
seems to hnve been taken. Why
such neglect ?
All the larger centres to the south,
Chicago, Cincinatti, Buffalo, etc.,
talce wry safe measures. An armoured patrol of police precede, then
(■{tines the armoured ear with it:; nrm-
ed men as well ns the treasure, and
again nn armed force in an auto.
Fleet nutos nre available at a moment's notice to take up a chase, if
need be. The streets nre lined up
by specials in plain clothes nnd so
the funds nre, in safety, conveyed
from one place to another. This
careful precaution costs but a bagatelle to its saving of monies that
else might ruthlessly pass into the
hands of the crook. How many
more tens of thousands are to be
taken by these rascals before preventative measures are taken?

"OUTSIDE SHOWS"
Mow much are we to endure from
"outside shows?" It would appear
that we are to be subjected to a seige
of this kind of thing—we hope not,
fur, such can but mean a loss to the
municipality and a by no means justifiable levy on the citizens* pocket-
books.
Take a case in point. A negro
troupe came to Hammond on Tuesday
night, and, we understand they ure
intending to go through every pnrt
of Ihe district "showing." The principle of these outside shows is a vicious one for the most part, They
may be good, bad or indifferent, and
may never so severely impose tin the
citizens nnd rob the community. They
may not, like Topsey, even grow, but
just drift in, gather many sheckels
ami off again to Florida, or wherever
or which does not make things a bit
better, go through a lot of other locations, gather the unsuspecting, get
their hard earned money and then
away to the south — neck crop and
booty and all.
One such show is now going
through the district — some six of
them and judging from the attendance they got at the Hammond Theatre Thursday evening they will carry
out a vast deal of money without
leaving justifiable results.
Speaking for the show on Tuesday
night ut Hammond it was surely a
"catch penny." The dancing and
singing in tlie fullest sense belied
its name, proving below the dignity
of any ordinary entertainment. The
only redeeming feature was that of
one of the troupe poising a bucket
of water on his head and after that
a bottle — even this did not mean
much for edification and had little
to draw forth admiration. We were
reminded of a certain other show
where one paid a sum of money to
see "Bonaparte." Me went in and
snw only a bone apart and in another instance to see nn animal with
its hend where the t»il ought to be.
The animal wns just turned around—
faced backwards iu the stall. Citizens might well he advised that "all's
not gold that glitters" imd money
spent on these outside shows is often
Irretrievably lost,

PYORRHEA OR RIGG'S
DISEASE
SAVE YOUR TEETH
To save your teeth look at the
gums, which should be healthy* pink,
firm nnd hard. If your gums bleed
when you brush your teeth; if they
are spongy and are pulling away
from the teeth; if they are sore when
apparently perfectly sound, beware of
Pyorrhea.
Millions of good people have this
disease and do not know it. Soft,
bleeding, receding gums mean pyorrhea, which destroys the hone that
holds the teeth in place. The teeth
loosen and fall out, or must be extracted because their support is gone.
Do not think that you are immune
—that you are saved from worry because your teeth are perfectly sound
and free from decay. Dentists' records show that more well-kept, per-:
feet, teeth, sound in every way, nr«
lost from tbe ravages of painless pyorrhea than from decay and all other
causes combined.
Pyorrhea seldom hurts until so
far advanced that the gums ulcerate.
Of course, you do not want to wear
false teeth—a plate—all the rest of
your days. You know how uncomfortable these are. You know how
hard it is to fit false teeth to even
the most perfect mouth. Why run
the risk of discomfort when your
teeth can be saved, your gums healed?
Pyorrhea, or ltigg's Disease, conquered, your stomach, bowels, heart and
nervous system brought back to normal.
PYORRHEA IS DANGEROUS TO
YOUU HEALTH.
Your family doctor will tell you
that pyorrhea is often responsible
for many diseases such as rheumatism, neuritis, kidney trouble, etc.
These germs enter y$mr whole system
and undermine your health.
Doctors warn that nearly all germs
enter the body through the mouth
or nose. If your gums are healthy
and tight to the teelh there enn be
no Infection and germs cannot penetrate Into the system.
At tlie first sign of unhealthy gums
consult your deutlsi, Your natural
pearly teeth cannol he perfectly replaced by false teelh..
A person should have the teeth
cleaned every three months by a dentist, and a dose examination of alt
teelh to see if any are decayed. The
mouth acids—the chief cause of tooth
decay—are forming all the time. Only
the six tiny mouth glands can check
these destructive acids by Hushing
the mouth constantly, Full normal
flow from these glands neutralizes
aud washes away lhe acids as fast
as they form but the glands need
exercise «*
Soft foods have taken away the
proper exercise. The glands nre
slowing down and letting the teeth
decay. You must give your mouth
glands the help they need. Eat food
which will exercise and make the salivary glands How more freely and
keep the gums active.
tt is well when brushing your teeth
to brush the gums thoroughly. Nothing is more vital to your health and
happiness Ibnn the condition of your
mouth, Soft,     bleed ing    receding
gums   are   natures   first   warning   of
pyorrhea.
WHY TEETH LOOSE
BEAUTY.
A vicious film clings to the teeth,
enlers crevices and stays. The tooth
brush alone does not end it. No ordinary  tooth   paste  effectively  com
bats it. Much film remains. Food
stains, etc., discolor it nnd then it
forms dingy coats. Tartar Is based
on film. Those cloudy coats hide
the teeth's luster — film also holds
food substances which ferments and
forms acid. It holds the acid in
contact with the teelh to cause decay. That's why so few escape tooth
troubles. Germs breed by millions
in film. They, with tartar, are the
chief cause of pyorrhea.
Final — Start immediately to get
your mouth into a normal, healthy
condition. Use a dent if rice which
is alkaline in reaction so as to neutralize the acids in your mouth. Use
a mouth wash and have your dentist
make an examination of your teeth
every six months. See to your teeth
in time, which means good health
and money in your pocket.

"The Common Law." tbe famous
Itobert W. Chambers' novel has be»n
done int(«] pictures by tlu, Selznlck
Company and will be nliown at Hammond   Theatre,   Thursday,   March   GW>
To tbe story value perhaps tbe most
outstanding .feature, of tills production is its cast, which co-stars Cor-
Inne Griffith, Conway Earlo, nnd Tl-
llott Dexter, and carries in their sup
port such celebrated players as Doris
May, Hobort Boaworth, Mlas du| Pont,
Bryant Washburn, Phyllis Haver,
Harry   Myers  nnd  Wally  Van.
The story of "The Common Law"
Is so well known that It Is hardly
necessary to moro than briefly sketch
It. It hns to do with the life of an
innocent young girt, thrown quite by
chance Into the society of artists,
sculptors, and the Bohemian atmosphere which surrounds this class of
people. She consents to pos© in the
nude, mid achieves a Rront success
ns A model. Great love comes to her
and Is returned by the Artist who
first saw her possibilities, but any
union between them Is blttorly opposed hy tho artist, Neville's, family.
She finally offers to live with hor
lover as his common law wife, and

j I'uiiiia and down tu Mexico, the whole
auto jaunt taking wis weeks,
After niotoriiij; to Davlavllle, thoy
took   Uie   (JoiiNt   route   for   thc   corn's*
' buck way. Berkeley, the neat of ;.n
11 ,-uoo-Htuilti.it university was ivisilt-
ed, after which Oakland wus reached
und lho journey mudo on to Selunas
Valley, where are Hollands, Hun Ber-
tildeno, etc., and for miles uroundvost
quantities of ripe navel and other
varieties  of  orangoa,
"We laid off," Mr. Cutlor nvorrsd,
"for Mine weeks in the nttrueUvo
town of Sun Louis O'Bisko," Soa
flailing una bathing hero moun us
much us nn outing to Bi<lgtiton or
Mauley Boaoh. Conditions nre Ideal-
It   Is after  getting  below   LOa   Angelew
tim largest quantity of oranges are
grown, in the neighborhoods of Rod-
lands,  Han  Bornldeno,   Upland,  etc.
An orange Fall) wus nil set and
tlu; bunting and decorations wero
flung far and wide, quite a mile on
one  street  alone.
"Proceeding we came to Imperial
Valley, which is 250 feet below sea
level. The lands of this Valley havo
to bo Irrigated, which Is done from
the Colorado river. There are some
eight   towns  In  this  valley.**
".Reaching the Mexican border we
saw no fine cities but rather places
that probably would be creditable to
neither side of the line—sort of flot-
sum   and   jetsum   towns."
Returning, after passing hoa Angeles, we hatU to pasa over the Ridge
route, 4,600 feet high, and the road
take**! on 1100 curves in a distance ot
40 miles. Tre view from the summit is wlide and exceedingly attractive."
"The prettiest towns that you met,
Mr.   Cutlei* 7"
"Medford, Berkeley, Santa Barbara,
were among the best."
They visited Sacramento, the capital, and, In all, scores of towns and
cities. They had the honor (?) of
seeing Dr. Coole of "getting bettar
every  way     and every  day"  fame 1
Mr. Cutler woe quite pleased with
the world-famous Mission of St. Gabriel, the leading pictures there showing tha history of the early Spaniard* St. Gabriel's Mission la not far
distant  from Hollywood
"What of tho roads ?"
Mr. Cutler replied that the worst
for the entire distance were a few
miles at this end, in proof of tho
good roads he Raid that barring a
smalt nail puncture they did not have
to change their tires for the whole
distance, going and coming. Like all
others, Mr. Cutler la glad again to
(be   back  In   Hammond.

Pitt Meadows, Feb. 83,

Some city Polk seem to think thai
the city has a corner on tht* enffly
spring weather. Not so fast, please.
Mere in Pitt nfetldpWB, twenl.v miles
up ttie I'Vaser Valley from Vancouver, spring began Jan. IS, Spiders
came out and began weaving I heir
webs, Gnats, Hies and an odd mosquito hnve been flying around ever
since. On the 17th of this month,
while buck in tny pasture, a large
mosquito had the audacity to li^lii
on my I mini und prepared to have
n good feed, when his* life pttid the
penalty for his nerve.
My little boy, 7 years of age, has
been bringing in wild (lowers lor the
past week. (ireen blades of grass
over six Inches in length enn be found
hy the hundreds. I think thut has
California heat for climate. The
'astern people do not need to cross
out of Canada to It ml California
uther, Neither do they need to
go to California to buy winter homes,
when hint] fitly miles out from Los
Angeles runs from five to ten thousand dollars per acre, und fur superior land in quality, for the production
of any kind of crops or fruit, of any
kind, can be purchased at Pitt Meadows from seventy-five to one hundred
dollars per acre nnd only twenty miles
out from the heart of the city of Van
couver,
This should be of great interest to
the people from the prairies who want
to get homes in n warmer climate and
don't hnve to leave our own good
country to find it,

Delighted Large Audience
Last Thursday the Agricultural
Hall, Haney, was well filled, the audience eager to hear the world renowned Cree Indian elocutionist, Miss
Nlokawa. Nor were any disappointed,
for In her almost a dozen selections
of very wide range, sho invariably
held young and old spellbound. Safe
to say, not one hearing this glf-.ed
and accomplished lady, .but would have
heard her at any cost, for hers waa
quite tho last wotM  In dramatic art.
Miss Nlckawa's stage appearance
was the embodiment of dignity, culture and genius'. Her delineation of
character was exceptionally fine ; her
volco and gesture ideal, and ahe had
the faculty of going right to the
heart* of her audience. In a word,
Rev. Mr. Clarke In arranging forMlxs
Nickawa's appearance hern, conferred
a Loon on the whole comrr.'i. Ity.
Others contributing to tho program

M.initola is perhaps the moat
marrying province in* Canada. For
i:i;.a'.ii!s, hi Oi.tario, there were 24,-
..71 marriages in 1321, a rate of 8.6
per 1,000, while in Manitoba it waa
1.7 per 1,000 of its 010,000 population.
East'jnund steamship travel from
Canadian ports via Canadian Pacific steamships is heavier at the
present time than for several years
past at this season, a recent report
declares! Bookings in some instances
have run as high as 70 per cent increase over those of last winter.
There wns nearly $160,000,000 in-
crease in the total trudc of Canada
for thc first five months of the current fiscal year, according to a return made by the Department of
Customs and Excise. The total
trndo uf the Dominion, according to
the return, for the five months ending with August, was $785,000,000,
as against S02tl,000,00(l during the
same period a year ago. Imports
during tho period were abni:! J. ";J,-
000,000, us against &303.00C 000 a
ye'.ir nro, while experts of Canadian
produce rose from $316,000,000 approximately to $880,000,000.
There is a heavy demand lor
bushmen, according to the Government Labor Bureau at Montreal.
The big lumber companies have been
engaging men for the bush, and tho
prospects are that the demand will
be sufficient to make fall and winter conditions good. Wages paid
this year hy the lumbei companies
nre higher than last year, the rates
paid being $40 and $45 a month,
whereas a year ago tlie schedulu
was ('own to $26 a month.    .
According to a recent official compilation, out of every 100 people in
C'.nada 61 live on farms. The 70,-
Ol/O farms in Canada represent a
j--oss worth of $700,000,000 or about
£10,000 per farm, and produce an
annual revenue of nearly $1,500,000,
an average income per farm ef $2,-
000 yearly.
From the opening of the crop
year, September 1st, to the official
closing of navigation, December
12th, thc Canadian Pacific Railway
reported the heaviest marketing of
grain since the inception of the road.
Cars loaded by the company aim
created a record for the aeason, having numbered 116,232. Grain marketed topped the 200,000,000 bushel
mark.
Thirty-seven per cent of all automobiles in Canada are owned by
farmers. Ownership of the balance,
according to recent statistics, ia
made up as follows: business men
and brokers, 16 per cent; salesmen,
and travellers, 16 per cent; professional men, 8 per cent; laborers, 4
Ser cent; contractors and livery men,
per cent each, and miscellaneous
and no occupation stated, 13 per cent.
When the Canadian Pacific liner
"Empress of Canada" left New York

experienced attendants, in addition
to a free library. The stock includes
