mile ami a quarter out from the

It upiicars the Indian was seen lying on the track by niortorman
Wis.dwi.rlh but not soon enough to
prevent the engine passing over
iiini. The victim who was known
as "Litlle Billy" arrived at Sardis
from BommlngS, Washington, on
the passenger train, and was in
search of bis wife who was picking
hops. Not limling her at Sardis he
Started up the track for Chilliwack.

Give Luncheon To.NighL
The complimentary luncheon to
be given this evening by the Retail
Merchants Association In tho K. P.
Hall promises lobe a very successful
affair. Invitations have been issued,
a dainty luncheon prepared, topics
and speakers selected, and it only
remains for those invited to be
present, to make the lirst of a series
of such gatherings the success, which
the committee earnestly hope will
lie made possible by the co-operation
of the retail interests of the city.
Those who have tlie matter in hand
have actually no more interest in
the movement than should be felt
by uny retailer in the city or valley
and of the benefits derived, will only
share them with the business interests in general, so that the object is
not to benelit any individual or
clique at the expense of any other
interest. The committee has removed every possible barrier to a
large attendance, even to the providing for thc expense entailed. It
is urgently hoped that every business man will be present and take
part in a discussion of the sulijects
presented l.y tlie different speakers.

The Chilliwack Dramatic Society's
presentation of "Facing the Music"
on three evenings last week was an
unqualified success. Enthusiastic
audiences greeted the amateurs and
entered immediately into the spirit
of the play, applauding heartily
throughout and assisting not a little
in helping the players along with
the rolicking fun produced. From
a financial standpoint over 82.10
net was realized which is being
given by the Dramatic Society to
the Agricultural Society.
The leading part in the play was
that of "The other Mr. Smith,"
taken ably by D. E. Carleton.
Mi. Carleton had a realistic conception of his purl and conveyed it
toothers, "Facing the music" like
a professional. F. B. Lyle, as tbe
Curate of St. Andrews, made the
most of his part and his innocent
contributions to the tangle were
well handled. J. R. Anderson,
the guest of Mr. Smith, played
Dick Desmond with the irrepressible
laugh in and out of season, in a
splendid style, while Fred Hart as
Colonel Duncan Smith, filled the
diameter to ft dot. Sergeant Dttf-
fell, tho detective with ideas and
vanishing courage under lira wns
well prntrnyed by 8. S.. Carolton.
Mrs. C. A. Barber, wife of thc
curate, touk her part throughout
the perplexing troubles which befell
her on arriving at the wrong Hut, in
a dignified ami natural manner. The
other Mrs. Smith on her arrival
found trouble iu large quantities, a
faithless husband, etc., uud in this
chnrnetor Miss Bell well maintained
her reputation gained in past
plays as a capable interpreter. M iss
Folheringay was taken by Miss
Margaret Bell excellently, the young
ludy possessing nn excellent singe
appearance. Miss Calbick as Mrs.
Pouting won praise on all sides,
many Haltering things lieing said of
ber. On the whole tho play could
hardly have won greater praise
thnn it has.
Mr. Lyle ns stage manager and
director, had bis plans well worked
out and proved himself as capable
as ever.
Delightful music was supplied by
nn orchestra consisting of I Messrs.
Kelland, piano; Dr. Elliott, violin;
J. Turpin, drums and traps.
Annual Fair A Success
Perfect Weather and a Record Exhibit are
Features.   Lame Attendance and Special
Attractions Good.
The finest of weather favored the
holding of the 40th Annual Exhibition of the Chilliwaek Agricultural
Society on Wednesday, Thursday
uml Friday,of last wee,,, und from
iiyiny points llm fair was n fjplondid
success. The Into altering of the
dittos, caused considerable confusion
in placing the exhibits ami in judging and in thlS respect there has
lieen some dissatisfaction. Thursday was Citizens day uud the fail'
was largely attended by city people.
'I'he races for local horsemen were
run off, ansl while there was a small
entry in each event a few close contests were polled off. On the second
day the attractions look the form of
athletic ovents, In a lacrosse match
New Westminster juniors had the
drop on the local stick handlers,
though at periods there was some
good work done by both teams
Hope football enthusiasts displayed tbeir powers at the game by de
fcnting llie local kickers. The Cubs
defeated the High School niiie in a
very good game. The ranchers hnd
no difficulty in getting the long end
of the rope in the tug of war with
the Indians in Iwo straight pulls.
Some of the platform attractions
failed to materialize but the Roman
Hippodrome race, and the balloon
ascension ami parachute drop, were
both interesting features. The
lutter was conducted rather late in
the afternoon, many finding it
necessary to leave the grounds lie-
fore the ascension, This event on
Friday evening was a failure owing
to an accident caused by a disarrangement of the ropes, the parachute dropped before the balloon had
risen more than ten feet. Davidson
the performer, was thrown to the
ground, and it was at first thought
serious injury had been sustained,
but fortunately his injuries were
The palmists, bow wows, freak
calves, baseballs and "babies,"
rings and jewelery, were (mostly) on
display. Dropping the "nigger"
into a vat of water was perhaps the
liest money maker and fun producer
if the bunch, wliile the young and
those who felt young, patronized the
The bronco busting exhibition
was a feature of much interest and
after the crowd had enjoyed the
failure of the lirst bronco to bock,
a second animal was produced which
furnished ihe necessary jolting nnd
then some, to the amusement of all.
The 104th Regimental Bund wns
on the grounds each day and under
the leadership of Canon Hincheliffe,
discoursed suitable music at frequent intervals.
Tho stock judging contest was an
interesting feature, and was conducted by Henry Rive, Provincial
Dairy Commissioner, (i. Brant, of
Sardis, won in the mens' class
while W. K. Hawthorne won in the
boy's class. Young Hawthorne
who is but thirteen years of age
scored the same number of points
as did the winner of the men's class
ind his stock won the commendation of Mr. Itlvo arid of those who
witnessed the judging.
Tbe artistic taste shown hy Miss
Sellers, Surdis, iu her Soleotlon uud
arrangement of loenl views, is worthy
of spocinl noto. This display wns
much admired.
The Chllllwaek Canning iit Preserving Co,, had a neal slisplay of the
untitled goods. There were about
seventeen dilTcrcnt varieties shown.
The Menzies Hardware Co., displayed tho Ournoy stono and kitchen
wnrc; Austin A' Myrcs, seeds, hives,
etc ; Hml A'   Hllll,   White  sewing
machines; while Fred Sample and
P. Stewart bad eneli a neal display
of blacksmith work. The work of
these men prove that they know
their trade and arc mechanics of the
lirst order, ('hilliwaek Implement
it Produce Cs.., had aline display
of goods on tin- grounds also,
Maynard & Murphy had n display
of buggies ele., and   Hurt  &  Hull
displayed the various lines of smnll
machinory bundled by tbem.
C. Huteheson & Co., had a display of vegetables to show wlmt lbc
valloy soil could produce.
tiii: lixniBlTs
The exhibit  Ihis yenr  on   tlic
whole wns much in advance of previous year's. In the main building
the exhibit was exceptionally good.
The display of Indies work, fruit
and vegetables; and poultry, were
lho feature exhibits,
Ladies Work—In this class there

occupying ull of one side of Iho
building, nud Included muny line

pluy of butter of good quality.

Tlio hungry mans' dinner competition wus novel, nnd thc menus
would satisfy thc appetite of the
most fastidious.
There wus a small but good showing of honey, pickles, jellies, etc.
The display of home made candy
was especially good.
Flowers—Tliere wns a large showing of potted plants, separate llowcrs
were good, the glndiolias lieing a
feature; there was a fnir collection
of pnnsies. The floral display
could be greatly improved upon,
The cactus dalias hns many admirers
and the showing was a stimulant.
Fruit—The entry for the apple
prizes was a very large one and the
display was of lirst class quality.
Pears were also good. Plums,
prunes, grapes and peaches were
also represented by small exhibits.
Crabapples and Orange ('uinces
were gin ul.
Vegetables—In this class the
showing was a winner mid it is
doubtful if such a splendid display
4 garden and field produce could
be produced any where else in
li. C. Potatoes, cabbage onions,
roots of all kinds, cucumbers,
rhubarb, citrons, cauliflower, carrots, beans, beets corn, celery were
all exceptionally good.
School Work—This department
was well represented and thc showing was of a high order and one
which created much interest.
District Exhibit—Two districts
Fairlield Island and Kast Chilliwack
were the only entries, but both were
of a high standard. Fairfield Island peoplo had the advantage of
having their display iu one section,
while East ('hilliwaek exhibit was
divided. The former was neatly
arranged and very attractive.
Fowl—The liest in the history of
the fair is the verdict of those who
know, in commenting on this feature
of the show, and next year will
witness another big step in advance.
Stock—Ayrishires and Jerseys
were predominating breeds shown.
The exhibit this year was not ns
large as last year.
Sheep and Pigs—There wns a
good entry in the sheep classes but
the swine entry wus smnller than
last year.
Horses—In tho heavy classes the
showing was not up to last yenr,
but in light and harness horse there

A portion of the King Edward
Highway is to lie built of concrete,
the contract for its construction
having been let on Sept. 11, by tbc
Honorable J. E. Citron, Minister of
Agriculture nnd Highways of the
Provinco of Quebec. The King Edward Highway is the Canadian section of the International Highway,
connecting Montreal with several
large cities of the United States.
Ultimately it is expected that this
rond will continue aa far south as
Miami, Florida. It wna the orignal
intention that the entire highway
should be built of macadam; but
the Honorable Minister, who has
under his jurisdiction of the Canadian branch of the work, has become interested in conoreate roadways and has decided upon this
important undertaking oa u good
place to try it out. Governments
and municipalities nre gradually
coining to recognize the necessity of
a more permanent form of road
construction. That concrete ia the
material which best fulfills all tbe
requirements of a permanent roadway, is a fact that will ultimately
obtain world-wide recognition.

To the Editor of the Free Press;
Dear Sit—We are very mucli surprised to note that Mr. Chapman
classes himself as an amateur photographer, or at least this is tlie only
inference that can be had from the
lirst prize tickets displayed in
his window as there were no prizes
offered in the prize list for any but
amateur work, and he must know
that it is considered rather unprofessional for a photographer of
standing to stoop so low us to compete for honors with amateurs. W.

The liest wny to build up a town
is for each and every man in it not
to strive to rend and tear it down.
Whenever a man in the town is
doing well do not try to tear him
down. All the residents of a town
are partners, not opponents. In
all likliliood the more business done
by your rival the more you will do.
Every gentleman who treats his
customer honestly, courteously and
fairly, will get his share, and the
more business that can be secured
by united effort, the better it will be
for all. When a town ceases to grow
it commences to die, and the more
the people try to kill off each other
iu their business and good name,
thc more rapidly will utter ruin
come to nil.
A merciful man is merciful t.
his Is'iists. Wc liko to see onr
farmers when they drive into town
on a cold, stormy day, put their
team in a barn or cover them with
blankets. In lhe heat of summer
they can always Iind shade in whicli
to leave the noble animals which
brought them safelv to town.
There arc many, however, who will
rush for a stove tlieltiselvesand leave
tlieir teams in the storm, while in
the heal of summer Ihey seek the
shade and leave Iheir homes iu the
sun. There is something wrong
nlaiut the man who thus abuses bis
team. He may la- a nice man, may
belong to a church, smoke nor have
any bad habits, but we would not
want b. Is- his horse.   No, sir.

Ohio river carries 83„150,000 tons and
tbe Missouri rlrer contributes more
tban twice as mucli. The Colorado
river, whlcb bus built up for itself a

United States, delivering annually 387
tons for eacb square mile of Its drainage basin or a total of 100,740,000
Tbe rivers of tbe United Stntes carry to tidewater every year 270,000,000
tons of dissolved matter and 013,000,-

A Dark Smok*.
Funny thing about smoklngl If a
man were compelled lo puff a good
cigar with his eyea abut the operation
would lose Its seat A man wbo had
undergone a slight operation upon ono
of bis eyes bad to stay In a darkened
room for a week with Ills optics band-
aged. After a few days his doctor
told him he could take a gentle smoke
If he liked. Ho Jumped at tbe chance
and to bla amazement found It nf
forded not the slightest pleasure. To
be sure, men often smoke ln tbe dark,
but there's alwaya tbe rosy glow of
tbe lighted end to be seen nnd the
faint outline of tbe cloud of smoke In
tbe air. There's no more fun lo a
sightless smoke tban a tailless egg or
a kiss Implanted upon your own hand.

And then an Inspiration came to thc
anguished youth. "The universal language," he cried, "I'll try, forsooth!"
He kissed the demure maiden and
