A good game nf football was
played last Saturday lietween lbc
Coqunleolius und the Hauliers. The
duy wns un ideal one, and more
spectators turned out to sec the
mutch than have boon present at
any other game this season. The
Bankers opened strongly and scored
a goal about fifteen minutes from
the start, through Dunford. A few
minutes later Carter atlded a second
goul for the Bunkers and thc tirst
half ended with the Bunkers two
goals ahead, In the second half
the play was very even but the
Bunkers added another goal and
finished with the score three goals
to nothing in their favor. The
scorers were Dunford, two goals
and Carter one. On Saturday the
Militia team will play the City

Mayor li. F. Waddington in the
inaugural uddress dwelt on the fuct
that the project hud not been consumated without self denial und
sacrifice on tlie pnrt of those who
hnd persevered and accomplished
the object in view. The same concentration of the effort would still
bo necessary. The Hospital wai a
necessity und would yearly become
more and more so, und would "require the practical support of residents of the valley in order that
the splendid work might be tuain-
taincd and its scope enlarged as the
needs increased; this support the
-Mayor maintained was a Christian
duty devolving upon all.
The Opening Declaration wus
made by Reeve I'. C. Wilson.
Reeve Wilson pointed out not only
the present necessity of such an institution in Chilliwack. but, with
the assured increase in imputation
us a result of the coming of the
C. N*. R. andG. X. R. linesthrongfa
the Valley, the ministrations of the
hospital would lie largely sought
iind its present proportions would
have to be increased. In .peukiug
of support tlie Reeve paid a stroua-
compliment to the splendid generosity nnd liberality of the people of
Chilliwack and Valley. In a few
well chosen words he officially declared the Chilliwack Hospital open.
The singing of "'Praise God from
whom all Blessings Flow'' terminated a very interesting and important service, in connection with a
new work in Chilliwack, which haa
liogun under such favorable and
gratifying auspices.
At the conclusion Of the ceremony
the many visitors inspected the
hospital und wen- served with »
delicious sup of tea and refreshments. Chilliwaek's new Orchestra,
tinder the leadership uf Miss Hill,
rendered a pleasing pr'UTam at
music during the afternoon.
We are given to understand that
the most active lady on the tint
auxiliary mentioned by Canon
Hinehliffe. was Mrs..M.C.Hall. srii,
collected iu the neighborhood of

share of credit,

Why the yogi gavo the charm, or what

w.is no lack of perils for such us be, As
it was, ho died in battle whilo 1 was
still a boy, having some time before his j hi
death fastened the charm round my u"
neck. There I wore it for mure years
