THE WIND, SHS BLOW COLD
Agassiz has Just experienced a three
days' wind storm which caused considerable damage to say nothing of
the inconvenience of the intense cold.
A large barn belonging to Raymond
Tuythena (which we mentioned In recent  issue  as being  a  great addition
t.<i tho landscape) was destroyed I ul-
bo a largo struoturt which was built
by tlio White Farm1 on the Hammers-
lojl I'rfairie to covor feotf. was blown
down. A window In tbe Women's Institute room was blown In. Considerable damage was dune to telephone
linen cutting off comtn'uii lent Ion in
many places, Several chimneys wave
burned out, nurimvly escaping bad
fl:es. In one instance Mr. Geo. Green
fought llltti a good follow that he is
on the roof of a barn, exposed to a
cutting wind, putting out sparks falling on the roof from a burning chimney. A number of roofs and fences
wero damaged. Autoa were conspicuous by their absence, excepting The
Sedan Taxi, and they were on the Job
dny and  night  as usual,

MIL l"«. A. AGASSIS! HERO OF MANY
EXPLOITS
"In morning' heard chanticleer crowing."
I .dying thut overy citizen, whether
pi mice i* or recent arrival, desires us
ii New Year's lefracy (lie write-up of
Ihe town's founder, we tender a real
iMisiiiialile blogi'aphy which we have
for the purpose held over the past
three months, This account of the
Citveer of one of Agussiz's first citizens cannot full of interest nnd value
to old nnd young, for, it Is the recital
of adventure, heroism and service.
Mr. Louis N. Agassiz haled in the
long ngo from Essex, England, leaving the ancestral home. He landed
first on West. Indies and later proceeded to I*. 13. T., which hi turn our
adventurer gave way to London, Ont.
This change seems to have been ordered, for, here Mr. Agassiz met Miss
Schrnm, just lately arriving from
New York, The quest-maiden, as well
ns Mr. Agassiz, was a loyalist and
they sealed their fealty to each other
by joining in wedlock. P. E. I.
was not forgotten so the youthful
couple removed back there to engage
In farming.
Later the "days of gold and the
days of '40" sent forth an appeal
which was answered by moving there.
Cariboo was tlie next lure—Williams
Creek (sixty prospectors' at this time
were working in Lytton. There was
a big gravel slide in which many were
unfavorably interested. Time does
not permit to relate the interesting
adventures here).
Tn 'OS Mrs. Agassiz with four children, among them the personage of
our sketch—yes, and not less to note
Miss 12. Agassiz, now, for some time
a member of the local educational
board. The young matron bad surely
come to the "wild and woolly west"
with its deep woods, murmuring pines
and all too attentive hoards of mosquitoes, in the words of our sketch,
"many   of   them   weighed   a   pound."
Soon a winter—for three months
'he Frnser was deep vested in ice,
easily three feet thick, and at Yale,
■i tittle higher up, the ice had to be
blasted on the morning of April 1st
to allow the steamer to get out.—it
was ns cold as tho winters of '01, '(i.1;
or '(ill.
Next year or so was a year of high
water, the flood being up on all the
huts so that prima tive water ornfi
was used. To do any trading a small
boat o" some water-craft passage had
Lo lie founJ to New Westminster as
li base of supplier On one occasion
they' emluirked in the fog of night.
and in the morning before anything
">uld he seen, a clear voice of chanticleer was heard, and lo and behold
tho city of New Westminster was
reached, At that time old Father
Frnser was much more of a raging
stream than today, Mr. Agassi/, often
■ceing whole trees floating down and
what was a very wonderful sight,
■'.hen a deep pool was readied the
tree roots or both would descend,
mae!strom-Uke until it stood upright
is in nature, only later to topple
hack to floating position.
Few people there were, nnd hence,
years after locating in the district,
settlers were so far apart thut they
could hardly "couie" to each other,
being relatively more distant from
each other than the currants in a
first settler's plum pudding.
Mr. Agassiz, Sr., had not ended his
adventures, In 1875 he went to Turkey and Russia, where he suffered
sun stroke, he had been, it must be
noted, injured on the head while engaged in California. It was about
1878 while in Turkey that Mr. Agassiz
passed in death, leaving resident on
the North Hank of the Froser a wife,
seven daughters and half as many
souk. Mr. Agnsslz's brother, too,
played a part in the theatres of the
Par East about that lime.
Mrs. Agassiz, Sr.—and there is no
resident Mrs, Agassiz, Jr.—at tlie age
of 00 years died ot tlie old home. The
day before she was driving around as
usual. To remember an Empire
building—at least in part—mother
and father, the many sons and daughters of whom Miss Elizabeth Agassiz
was the youngest were left. In naming residence of these, Ernest is in
Seattle; Mrs. Ooodfellow is a pioneer
citizen of Victoria; one sister lives in
London. Ont.
A patriotic family! Of the Ave
sons, four went to the front, the eldest being numbered among the slain,
he at the time with rank of major,
was acting Colonel. Mrs. H. It. Mrown
of Pitt Meadows is the second youngest daughter.
Mrs. Capt. Moore whose husband
was the first to start a hop plantation1
in the district is the third (laughter.
Tt would interest many to know
that Mr. Brown, Sr., owned, the Hot
Springs site first nnd for ten years
leased it to Mr. Armstrong, who certainly at first made it pay.
Our Mr. Louis Arthur Agassiz took
up a place at Williams Creek, but
soon loaded his little possessions for
New Westminster. Thereafter a
meandering life was spent variously
at Hope, Yale, Douglas, Emory's Bar,
with not u few stirring episodes to
("five relief to pioneer life. Burlier
Mr, Agassiz, Sr.. had for Hope and
Yule tho honor of filling the positions
h' postmaster, constable, collector of j
lolls on the SituilUaniecn lloud, etc.)
Inquests there were several of which
hud quite unusual interest.
"Let us ask you, Mr, Agassiz, to
clear up u few ideas—you don't mind
us bi-iirg categorical, do you?" "When
were the Springs opened up?" How
came your town by its name?"
Mr. Agassiz smiled. "The Springs
received attention first in 18S7. it
was the C. I\ It. that gave our hamlet.,
as it was then, the name of my late
father i\\\<\ his world-famous kinsman,
the illustrious naturalist."
"What of your early education?"
"Yale and Agassiz were my theatres
tn this respect. Some of my contemporaries were Dr. Tolmie, Dr. Helm-
cken   (deceased)."
"Do you know anything about the
famous Brought on Street School, Victoria?"
"Very little, but I knew well tho
Deacon's School named after Arch'
deucon Woods.*
"As your farm was getting cleared
up did you experience somewhat the
same incidence of earlier days?"
"Well, the wild animals came near
as noticed by the howling of wolves.
Bears came uninvited to our orchards.
We had the animals of tlie wild; occasionally an Indian, stolid and taciturn, but sometimes a whole year
passed without meeting even one
white man or woman. Our first house
was the log building now occupied by
my three sisters. The first, school
was the building at present used as
a hearth and heart place by Mr. and
Mrs. Heath. Children were too few,
and, os often featured pioneer settlements, children had to be "borrowed," although nearly all of our
family attended. Mr. McQuage was
the first teacher. Hindoos were found
to be the most satisfactory hands in
railroad  construction."
"Your family is easily one of the
old English type but whence were you
originally?"
"The family hailed from Switzerland."
"You would know well at least the
'egislutlve careers of Amor de Cosmos,
Thos. Bassll Humphries and others?"
"Yes, and Simon Duck, llobert Bev-
mi, and Wm. Smythe, tlie first premier to Victoria."

WORLD PAYS FINE TRIBUTE
TO A GREAT NATION BUILDER
Passing of Lord Shaughnessy Calls Forth Expressions of Actx.irr.tion and Respect For the Man of
Far Vision and Unfaltering Determination, Wl. /se Monument Is As Much in Canada's
Greatness as in the Railroad He Helped to Build.
  J
the practicability ot those dreams
alter dawn.
"Lord Shaughnessy, whose passing
t.aiiaua mourns today, was a man of.
this calibre, and because of the Intangible nature of that essence which
makes tor greatness and crystallises
leadership, the record ot his characteristics, his gifts and his achievements must leave much untold. Yet
in the qualities that were revealed to
his friends and associates, In the
firmness of purpose and the strength
of character displayed, In the very
ascent of the ladder of success, rung
by rung, Lord Shaughnessy has bequeathed a heritage to tbe youth of
Canada of splendid inspiration and to
the men who nave lived through the
historic yearn with him he has left a
glad remembrance, . . .
"1 have set up a monument more
lasting thai bronze" wrote the great
Horace two thousand years ago. The
words might be carved upon every
line Kit' railway of the system which
Lord Shaughnessy did so much to
bring to greatness as an epitaph of
his life. Himself of strict Integrity,
.10 carried tlie principle ot the strait-
est code of ethics into the administration o( the road he loved so
warmly and for which he laboured so
untiringly. . . .The Empire mourns
a great pro-consul."
And this, from the i^indon Times,'
ever the spokesman for the heart of
that Empire: "The romance, Imagination and fine courage of the Empire
builder are blended In the life story
of Lord Shaughnessy, Himself a
native of the United States, he lived
lo become not only a citizen of tho
Dominion of Canada across the border but most essentially a citizen of
the British Empire, tor his wholehearted au'd efficient work was not
merely dedicated lo the service of
his country. Under his administration, the double track branched and
extended so as to carry new settlors
every year into tho farmlands of Ontario, through tlie gateways of the
West Into the wheat-fields of the
prairies, and beyond the Rockies Into
the valleys of British Columbia. In
building the greatness of the company he served, he helped to build
the greatness of his beloved country
and of the Empire as well. ... Of
Lord Shaughnessy It may be said
that he was a living Instance of the
manner in which Britain's overseas
dominions assimilate the many elements of which they are composed.
He came to Canada from a foreign
country as a servant; he remained to
be honoured by the King, to whom
he gave such loyal allegiance, and
in be recognized universally nmoiig
his fellow-countrymen as the first
citizen of the Dominion."
The eiip left in the ranks of true
Christian ;;cntlcmen by lite sudden
and premature snapping (if this steel
link with tlie oltl railroad builders Is
very large.
On December 10th, at Montreal,
Death stilled the keen mind
which for forty-two years had been
ever at the disposal of the Canadian
Pacific Railway, the strong hand
which for twenty years had held the
lever of that gigantic machine, the
gallant heart which had ever been
attuned to the music of the giant
company's locomotives. Taking away
Lord Shaughnessy, he took away
with him the last of the old guard of
the great pioneers of Canada's
pioneer trans-continental. The departure of this monumental man Is
significant of the changing times, a
mark »f the Dominion's passing into
manhood.
The details of Lord Shaughnessy's
truly wonderful career have been recapitulated so often'of late that there
is little need to run over them here.
Born In 1853, at Milwaukee, of Irish
ancestry, he studied for the law, felt
the lure of great railway work, entered tne Chicago, .Milwaukee and St.
Paul Railway as clerk at the age of
sixteen, and in ten years rose to the
position of General Storekeeper. In
1882, when Sir William Van Home
took over the management of the
Canadian Pacific Railway, he at once
engaged the young man he had known
with the Chicago, Milwaukee and St.
Paul, offering him the position of
General Purchasing Agent. Two
years later came the promotion to
Assistant General Manager, in 18111
the Vice-Presidency, and in 1898 the
Presidency. Tills position ho held
until 1918, when he retired to accept
the office of Chairman of tho Board
of Directors, which he retained lo
the moment of his death. Meanwhile came many honours-in 1901,
a Knight Bachelor, in 1907 a Knight
Commander of tlie Victorian Order,
in 1916 a Baron, and high appointments in tho many civil organizations in which lie was interested.
Lord Shaughnessy wus a man of
vision, of tremendous energy, brilliant and incisive, a groat executive,
a great financier—almost everything
but a politician.
Canada will never realize the full
extent of what It owes to the steadfast faith, buoyant optimism, foresight and sheer hard work of Lord
Shaughnessy in his desire to build
up Canada through the agency of the
vast company he headed.
Lord Shaughnessy was unsurpassed
as an administrator. His discipline
was strict but tempered with justice,
kindliness and a keen sense of humor
which made his followers love him.
His attitude towards Labour was well
known, ■» It was rightly said by tho
company's employees that any dispute might safely lie left to him, and
his frequent pronouncements In favour of giving the workingman ns
grout an opportunity for Bel (-improvement nnd enjoyment uh the employer caused  the employer of the

old school to tremble. Finally, he
was a great Canadian and a great
believer in the British Empire.
From a1,] parts' of tho world lirtve
come stirring tributes to this leader
among men. H. M. tiie King cabled
Lady Shaughnessy as follows:
"The Queen and I are- grieved to
hear of your bereavement, in which
we offer you our sincere sympathy
We shall always preservp the pleas-
antest memories or Lord Shaughnessy and of Lis unfailing kindness
and consideration, both to ourselves
and to members of my family." H
It. 11. the Prince of Wales, His Excellency the Governor-Genera] and the
Hon. W. H. Tart,' ex-President and
now Chief Justice of tho Supremo
Court of the United States, stand out
among the thousands who also
cabled or wired their tributes.
From the Press came such appreciations as this, published by the
Montreal Star: "Great builders are
few and the British Empire counts
herself fortunate in the long roll cf
brilliant servants who have spent
themselves unsparingly In her Interests. . . . These builders are few
because in thorn are assembled many
talents, great aspirations (often
seemingly contradictory) and idlo-
syncracies of temperament that,
leavened with unselfishness, the
noblest gift of the gods, make up
that Indefinable quality which the
world calls greatness. They arc men
of far vision and of tlie rugged determination that refuses to lie balked
by imposing obstacles, with an Infinite capacity for work ami a joy In
Its accomplishment; men who can
dream gioui things nnd Impress their
fellow-workers with the reality .'in1

and, really, everywhere such a social asset. Even a worse feature of
not having a Community Hall is the
necessity, continually existent, of going to' other towns to get what Is
denied at home, and so sending the
money  rljrht out of town.
Aa a matter of fact, very small
places have their Community Hall,
and with it tht best obtainable pictures,  etc.
It la remarkable what small places
are well possessed In this respect—
Aldergrove, Albion, Ruskin, Whon-
nock,   Pitt  Meadows,   Stave  Falls,   etc.
How Jong Is our town to suffer
this loss ? The Record believes that
the time has come fo:- immediate action. May not tbe early New Year
find Agassi?! in this respect triumphant ?

CINDERELLA   DANCE
The t.O.D.E. hold a Cinderella
Dance In the I.O.O.F. hall on Saturday last, but owing to the Inclemency of the weather the attendance
was not large. The storm was so
bad that It was at first thought advisable to postpone It, but the time
waa too short to give notice and, the
Inclination so strong in some to go
through with anything they stnrted,
that a very enjoyable evening was
spent.
