We are called upon this week to
note the death of Keg. W. Main,
; which tal event occurred Inst Sunday morning. The funeral was
conducted on Tuesday by ilev. A.
N. Miller, the large concourse of
! people attending attesting the high
j esteem in which the deceased was
held nnd respected in the vicinity.
Reginald W. Main was born at
! Elora, Out., Sept. 2)!. 1879. was
educated at Elora, passing through
I the high school at that place and
[also the Model school, finishing
with ii lirst class teacher's certificate for the province of Ontario.
At the Model school he obtained
the highest marks that hud ever
been taken in the county up to
thnt time. For a short time he
was in the collegiate at Owen
Sound but returned to his native
place to complete his .work. After
teaching school for a short time he
entered the probationership of the
Methodist ministry and preached
for a year and a half. His health
failing he came to British Columbia in October 1901. The
bracing climate of the Okanagan
had its effect upon the delicate
'constitution and health seemed
completely restored. Mr. Main
became active in every good work,
pursuing farm life in company with
his brother Leslie with characteristic energy. He often filled the
pulpits of the local entireties with
i much acceptance and journeyed
several times to Vernon for the
same purpose, On one of the return trips from the latter place he
was caught in n severe hail and
rain storm and contracted a heavy
cold which never seemed to rightly leave him. In March 11)04 he
went to Ontario foT a visit, returning in July of the same year.
Last spring he settled upon the
Hoult farm at Knob Hill, and on
May 24th was married to Miss
Maud Purdy. The last Bummer
brought many disappointments, bnt
all were met with unflinching
j courage and simple trust in tho
I divine wisdom of Qcd. The
| last illness wns brief but not accompanied by any severe pain.
He paBsed away on Sunday, quietly breathing his Lust at 9:45 a. m.

The marked suecsss that has
attended the promoters of the
Armstrong Earmers' Exchange has
inspired other places to move for
the organization of similar institutions. The suggestion has lately
been mode that all   the towns of
the valley combine In one general
association, thereby doing away
with competition, increasing the
market and reducing the expenses
below those of several separate associations, and in this way secure
the farmer better prices for
their fruit nnd produce.

in this community be delayed until niter the spring work was done
it was voted to send a wire to the
department Snturdny evening requesting tho detention of the test
in this community until after the
receipt of the above mentioned petition. In response to this wire
the reeve on Monday received a
wire from the acting veterinary
general stating that the government could not interfere with the
descretion of the inspector. In
view of this, coming as it does
from the head of the veterinary
department, the sending of the
petition has been abandoned. In
the light of this information it
would appear that any steps taken
by the people to bring about any
abatement of the present slaughter
of horsrs is futile and that the better method would be to turn in and
help the inspector in every manner
possible and in this way materially
assist in hastening the complete
stamping out of the disease in this
The loss of horses to the fanning community through the
slaughter for glanders is after all
not 60 serious a matter as muny
might lead one to suppose, or as
might be indicated by the number
that have been killed from the
local livery barn. Five per cent
jjo far covers the loss sustained to
the farming communities in which
tests have been made, Although
the loss to some farmers who have
only two or three horses nnd be
so unfortunate as to lose all will
will suffer serious losses, the loss
to the municipality on the whole,
reckoning on this basis, will really
be very slight.
Now that a high school is an assured fact for Armstrong, the question of accommodation comes up
for consideration. The Armstrong
school trustees have under con
sideration a suggestion which
believe should meet with
approval and will  if adopti
admirably the requirements, not
only of the high school, but ndili.
tional accommodation for the
public school pupils. The suggestion is to raise the present public school building to a two-story
building, renting a portion of the
second Btory as a high school and
retain the balance for use of the
public school. The fact is now
evident that not later than a year
hence an additional room will be
needed to accommodate the increasing number of public school
pupils, and by following out this
suggestion this room can be easily
provided, while the rent paid by
thi high school.- even nt a moderate
rental, will go far toward paying
the expenses incurred, A public
meeting for the discussion of tht
subject next Friday evening should
see a good attendance of rate-
payers present.

The Ladies' Guild Ball.
The dance given under the auspices of the ladies' guild , of St.
James' church, in the Foresters'!
hall on Wednesday evening, was
perhaps the jolliest affair of the
kind given this season. Although
the attendance was not ns large as
at the Foresters' ball a few weeks I
ago, the crowd was large enough to
tax the capacity of the large hall, I
which, by the way, has become
altogether too small for dancing!
purposes. Armstrong hns become
noted throughout the valley for;
successful entertainments ol the
kind and the large "attendance
from outside places goes far to curtail .the accomodation wh'c'i the
home contingent require. The
ladies of the guild nre to be coin-;
plimented on the manner their
annual dances are carried out.
Their suppers nre perhaps their!
long suite, not so much for their
elaborate nature but daintiness of
everything, iu connection with
them. Wednesday night's ball in
this respect was no exception to
the rule and the tables so daintly j
laid con'a'ned fruits and jellies:
that just seemed to touch the right I
place. The ball itself was admit- j
tedly the ball of the season. The;
costumes of the ladies were very
pretty and so varied that detailed
description is impossible. The
orchestra of five pieces supplied j
the best music that has ever been!
produced ill Armstrong.
The Cotton Belt Mines.
Robert McAllister, of Glasgow.-
Scotland, spent a couple of days of
the past week in Armstrong. Mr.
McAllister represents extensive
Scotch capital and was here on
business in connection with the
Cottonbelt group of mines at Seymour Arm. He is figuring on a
purchase of the bond on the claims
and came here   to   interview   the
owners of the mines.

B. Francis hns his new building
well near completion and by it is
added a noticeable improvement to
thnt vicinity of Railway street. The
jeweler who was expected to occupy
it when completed has not lately
been heard from, but as Mr.
Francis has other tenants in view
•there is no question of its not being occupied should the jeweler
not materialize.
Those places in town which
have heretofore enjoyed the service of electric lights will now have
to await the installation of the
complete system. The Hour mills
people find that they require all
their power and have to discontinue
supplying any out side light.
Among the places affected is the
I. O. F. hall, where the loss of
light is the mote noticeable during
the season of public gatherings.
The miction sale of merchandise
held in the I. O. F. hall Saturday
by the Wood Cargill Co. attracted
a very large crowd, not only of the
men of the community but a large
number of the ladies being in attendance to take advantage of any
bargains in the different lines of
goods offered. Auctioneer Francis
put in about nine hours steady
work and succeeded in disposing
of a large amount of goods. The j
prices realized in some cases were'
most satisfactory, ' while other ■
goods were certainly sold at real
bargain prices, Taken as a whole
the buyers succeeded in getting the
better end of the bargain in that
the goods on the average were sold
at very reasonable prices even considering the wholesale prices only.
The nscetylene gas plant, of which |
there has been considerable bus- !
picion among
its actions on
Christmas tree, was the cause of n
large portion of Sunday night's
congregation leaving in the midst
of prayer. At the sonnd of escaping gns all those who were frightened of the machine arose as if
instinctively and rushed in a body
from the building, some leaving
portions of their evening's wraps
and others taking their hymn
books instead, while those who
succeeded in contrbling their
nervous systems remained
throughout the service. Rev.
Campbell later announced that the j
machine wonld not be used again I
until placed in a building by itself, j
so that we may all go to church
now with a feeling of comparative
safety. J

of opium poisoning, found that
Chamberlain's colic, cholera and
diarrhoea remedy which had been
given contained opium, and jumped at the conclusion that the child
was suffering from opium poisoning, which was ll mistake as it had
precisely the same symptoms before the medicine was given.
The testimony of William Duncan, the child's father, was ns follows:

was held responsible for the death |
of the infant child of Mr. and Mrs.
William Duncan at a coroner's
inijuest. Doctors gave evidence
that tlle child had died  of opium
poisoning. Coroner's evidence
was given that fifteen drops of the*
mixture was inlsoliitely fatal,       j
The evidence before the coroner's
jury was published in full in the
Victoria Colonist, It shows conclusively that the child did not die
of opium pblsoning, but the child
had the same symptoms before
any medicine was administered ns
when the doctor was called and
found it suffering from what he
called opium poisoning.

not true. Not only that, but we
