Score Brilliant Success The Hospital Opening Dickens at the P. S. A.
J. H. Ashwell and A. B. McKenzie on behalf of thc Chilliwack Cannery and Preserving Co. and (J. I.
Thornton, representing the Chilliwack Farmer's Institute, have lieen
appointed a delegation to pay a
visil to Puyallup, Wash., where
the cultivation of small fruits is
specialised. The valley is four by-
six miles in extent and last year,
1,000,000 cans of black berries,
were delivered at the Puyallup
Cannery alone The industry is n
splendid success nnd Ihe visit of the
Chilliwack delegation is for the
purpose of going into the subject
and learning the in- thods employed
and the basis on which this branch
of industry is developed. A report
will be given thc Directors of the
local cannery on the return of the
delegation and it will also Imi published. In connection with the
Chilliwuek Cannery the Company
is supplying seed benns to farmers
nnd market giirducrs nt the whole-
side prices. Already seven acres
have been allotted, and those desiring lo grow beans are requested to
see the Secretary J. II. Ashwell.
latA yenr beans proved to be one of
thc licst prollt producing commodities handled by the Cannery, both

Fn Lul Eveaing
A small house on Wellington
streel, west of the Harrison House,
was badly gutted by lire a little
after seven o'clock Inst night. The
brigade was soon on the spot and
had the Iin- under control, though
it had gained considerable headway
before the alarm was given. The
house is owned by Jos. Scott, and
was occupied by employees of the
Grant-Smith Co.
Io Presenting "The Magistrate" Local Artists
Mike i Big Hit in Stage Comedy.
Proceeded by situations overlapping with exceeding interest and
bristling with humor, the story of
Mr. nnd Mrs. Posket and the
juvenilc(?) son of Mrs. Poskil by
her lirst marriage, with ull the
iiieidcutnrics, ns unfolded   by   the
Chilliwuek Amateur Dramatic Society on Thursday nnd Friday night,
wns a brilliant succoss and worthy
of all the praise which it, hns since
received liy (hose who were fortunate enough lo sec und bear il, for
themselves. Pinero's, "The Magistrate," is a rather ambitious composition lo attempt in the short
time which was at the Amateur's
disposal, but the cast acquitted themselves with credit, and evinced much
liislorionic ability. To II. T.
Goodland ns Mr. Pocket, Magistrate
of Mulborry Street Police Court fell
the heaviest role and in his pnrt he
wus capital, succeeding at all times
in keeping the Situations up to
pitch. Mr. E. Hubble as Cis Far-
ringdon shares the honors with
Mr. (ioodland for he would be very
hard to improve on in the part of n
rollicking ''wise" boy of the world,
always providing fun and laughter.
Colonel Lukvn was portrayed
by S. Hubble most excellently,
quite in a finished style, and that
little Irishman G. C. Carter as one
of the Metropolitan Police was a I
gem. Tbe other gentlemen of tlie i
cast, D E. Carleton, P. J. Brown, I
F. Hart, 11. H. Hall, J. R. Anderson, A. Bunnett and W. G. Frost
were all very good iu their respective parts. Miss Edna Knight took
the part of the much distracted
Mrs. Posket with grace and dignity
and her appearance was very pleasing. Miss Brown as Charlotte,
Mrs. Posket's sister was vivaeiousund
felt quite at home iu her character,
While in Beattie Touiliuson, Miss
Millie Bell was a very coquettish
young music toucher an adept at playing with the affections of Cis. Miss
A. Lyle as Pophmn, all wished had,
had a heavier part so we could have
seen more of her. F. B. Lyle the
stage manager to whose energy and
talent thc credit of the production
is largely due, should feel gratified
indeed with the result. Wc believe after all thc expenses arc paid
about 8200 will go to the furnishing
of thc new gymnasium. Thc music
of the Chilliwaek Orchestra provided during the evening was much
enjoyed and added another feature
Ui the making of thc evening's success.

The following extracts we have
the privilege of giving in print to
onr readers, taken from Dr. and
T. II. Henderson's letters describing the trip they are now enjoying.
The lirst letters were posted at
Honolulu, the first slopping point,
and were written New Year's duy.
"On Board S. S. Makura, Jan. 1,
1SI12. "Here wc ure 1(100 miles
from Victoria, the most beautiful
New Years dny you could possibly
imagine, Iho weather ns warm as
the lirsl of June, with balmy breezes

big picnic since we left. The day

lively on board ns there was a pretty
good sea, consequently hot many

about a dozen sat down instead of
over one-hundred. The sea thc

Wc wish you could see the meals we

we put in Ihe time walking on deck,
playing games, smoking, rending,

singers on board and have quite a
bit of music, Last night wc were
roused out of our sleep by a number
singing thc old year out und the
New Year in. Each day wc put

I can scarcely realize tbut we are
only four nnd one hnlf days out

We bave reduced our under clothes

A Fine Address on the Ureal Writer.    The
Offer by G. R. Ashwell & Son, ol Free
Accommodation for Reading Room
is Announced.
There is always something now
at the P. S. A. each Sunday and
Inst Sunday was no exception,
when Rev. W. S. A. Cruix, B. A.,
of MunilOll, Man., who was on a
visil lo friends in Iho city, directed
the thoughts of men lo the life
work of Charles Dickens, whose
centenary is being celobratcd this
month. "Dickens, the humorist
and moralist of the nineteenth century" was the title, and the speaker,
in the short time at his disposal
gave a splendid outline of thc range
of thought, the pathos, thc humor,
llie incite into the human nature,
and the great and beneficial effect
of the work of Dickens. This latter
especially in regard lo uplifting und
developing of child life. The address wns given in 11 fluent und
pleasing style punctuated with
pithy anecdotes and incidents of
deep human interest from tbo
author's works, und was opened
and concluded with the following
appropriate lines:
llv Tin: Ifr.v. Hexiiv BURTON   M.   A,
Never a word is sai.l,
Bul it trembles in llie air,
And tbe truant voice bus sped,
Tu vibrate every wliere,
And perhaps fur oil' in eternal years,
Tlie echo may ring "Pen uiu- ears.
Never hit kind aels done,
To wipe llie weeping eyes,
Uul, like Hashes nf the sun,
Tliey signal to the skies.
And UP above tlic uiifiels read
How we have belped the sorer need.
Never si day is (riven
But ii tones tlie after years,
And it carries up to Heaven
its sunshine or ita tears;
While ihe to-morrows stand and wait
Tlle silent mutes by llie inner (fate.
There is no end t<> the sky.
Ami the stars an- everywhere,
And time isetcrnily
And the hero is over tliere;
For the common deeds of the common
Are ringing bells in the faraway.
About two-hundred men were in
attendance. A. Bunnett sang
"Calvary" in a approved style.
Thc Chairman, John Robeinson,
mnde the important und interesting
announcement that J. R. Ashwell
A- Son, hud offered the use of two
rooms over their departmental store
lighted and heated free of charge,
for the purposes of n free reading
room for men, to lie conducted
under tho auspices of the P. S. A.
It is very probable Ibat Ibe generous
offer will i«' accepted and an inviting and comfortable reading room
established. Sueh an institution
will lill uu important place in the
city, as nt present there is nothing
of the kind established, nnd no
doubt would be well supported nnd

to offset this we used to got up as early

do her cooking early so that 1 might

my eye but she made most of her things
herself and didn't care much about

others, they made her feel it. However, spring came around again anil
we forgot all about those details. We
didn't go in town so much that summer and used to spend more time on our

Pulpwood Production of Canada
Thero wero fifty-one pulp mills In
Canada in 1910, and these used 698,487
cords of wood. lu addition to this
9*13,14] cords of pulpwood were exported iu an unmanufactured state. Por
the lirst time, imports of pulpwood were
reported; these were valued at $49,322.
Over 95 per cent, of the Canadian
mills cut the pulpwood used by thom
from their own limits. Tho total
value of the pulpwood used was $3,585,*
164, tho average value being thus $0
per cord. From this pulpwood 474,00-
tous of pulp were produced,
The total quantity of pulpwood usod
was 23,042 cords (3.8 per cent.) less in
1910 tlmn in 1900, but owing to a higher average price, the value of the pulpwood was $121,074 greater than in 1900.
The o was in 1910 also a striking Increase iu the amount Of pulp produced

lieing about 1 15 pounds greater per cord

Many ure tlic seliomes evolved for

capture or death is u comparatively
rare occurrence when set against his

When the eastern papers speak ol
tho hack of the winter boing broken
the,y are referring, of course, to
what we now speak of ns lost winter,
The Dominion Railway Board
has ruled that railways are not required to furnish sufficient train
accommodations for all the i-eoplo
taking; advantage of cheap rates dur-
ng the holiday season. This ha*
been a longstanding grievance with
the passengers, and is likely to remain so indefinitely.
A Cincinnati philosopher claims to
have discovered Ponce de Leon's secret of eternal youth. It consists in
concentrating nur minds on the fact
that we arc continually youthful,
and at the age of 100 we ought to
look forward to a bright and useful
future, We nro advised to practice
concentration, taking as our sul.jeet
some good truth such as the statement, "The power to be in perfect
health lies within me." This was
to be kept in mind while thc body
was in a state of relaxation, and the
person concentrating was to practice
healthful breathing. That thc flesh
of the body renewed itself every 30
or GO days, and that bv constantly
keeping in mind objects of youth
and beauty, it was only in years
and experience possible to remain
young growing old.
San Diego, California, has adopted a method of civic improvement
that is unique. In that climate, the
eucalyptus trees grow so rapidly, that
they may be cut down, and immediately they grow from the roots, and
in seven years, may again he cut-
down, furnishing large quantities of
valuable wood. The timber is capable of a beautiful polish, and is
suitable for furniture and office
littings. Tiiis is a source of revenue
and and many invest in eucalyptus
groves, simply for the timber.
Last spring, San Diego planted
•10,000 eucalyptus seedlings on a
wasted tract of 7,000 acres. So
rapidly have these grown under
scientific management that the
citizens have hopes that their city
may pay all its expenses from the
proceeds. If so, Ihe result will be
that San Diego will be a taxless
. .
There's a man in the world who
is never turned down, wherever he
chances to stray; he gets the glad
hand in the populous town, or out
where the farmers make hay; he's
greeted with pleasure on deserts of
sand, and deep in thc aisles of thc
woods; wherever he goes there's the
welcoming hand—he's The Man
Who Delivers thc Goods. Thc
failures of life sit around and
complain; the gods haven't treated
them white; they've lost their umbrellas whenever there's rain; and
they haven't their lanterns at night;
men tire of the failures who fill with
their sighs the air of their own neighborhoods; there's tlie man who is
greeted with love-lighted eyes—he's
The Man Who Delivers the Goods.
One fellow is lazy, and watches thc
clock, and waits fur the whistle to
blow; one has n hammer, witli
which he will knock, and one tells
the story of WOO' and one, if requested to travel a mile, will measure
the perches and rods; but one
does   his stunt  wiih a  whistle or
smile—he's The Man Who Delivers
the Goods, One man is afraid he'll
labor loo hard—the world isn't
yearning for such; and one man is
ever alert, on his guard, lest he put
in n minuto too much; and one
has a grouch or a temper that's
bail, and one is a creature of moods,
so it's bey for the joyous and rollicking lad—for The One Who
Delivers the Goods!—Walt Mason,
in "Talking Machine World."
Justice Harlan has this to say on
worry:—Speaking of worry, that is
one thing that a man must learn to
avoid if he will be well and happy.
Tliere is no one thing in the world
that has a tendency to upset and rust
a man's body nnd faculties more
rapidly than worry. The man who
tloes not worry is usually n happier
and better man, as fnr ns ability nnd
capacity for work are concerned,
titan the man who allows himself to
be worried.
Here is a good paragraph from
Uuskiu:—"To get peace, if you do
want it, make for yourselves nests
of pleasant thoughts. None of us
yet knows, for none of us has lieen
taught in early youth, what fairy
palaces we may build of beautiful
thoughts—proof ngninst all adversity. Itrigltl fancies, satisfied
memories, noble histories, faithful
sayings, trcasurchouscs of precious
and restful thoughts, which cure
cannot disturb, nor pain make
gloomy, nor poverty take away from
us—houses built without hands for
our souls to live within."

How ditl :iu American named Sinister make sn much trouble between
Persia ami Russia*? Who is this Mr.
Sinister, anyway?
William Morgan Sinister is a young
American lawyer, thirty-four years old, j tors of
who wns appointed Treasurer-General
of Persia a few months ago, oa re*
commendation of President Tuft. Port-in'h finances were in a bad way. So
the Persian government, thinking that
the United States had no axe to grind
in Persian a Hairs, appealed to Taft
to send over a smart man to put the
finances on a business basis.
Taft picked out Shufiter. That young
man had already straightened out a
.ustoms and tariff mix-up in Cuba and
*.lso in tiie Philippines, when Taft wus
Governor of those, islands Sinister
wns handy, having gone back to Washington in 1009 to practise law; aud
when the President advised him to go
to Persia, he went.
Shustcr took four othor young Americans with him, ami proceeded with a
high hand to straighten out the Persian national finances. Russia didn't
liko the process. Sinister's friends also say that botli RubbIo and Great
Britain sought to tie his hands. Be
that as it may, open trouble started
early last October, when tbc Persian
government decided to seize the property of the ex-Shah's brother because
of his support of an attempted revolution (backed Sinister says, by It us-
sia),  Russian soldiers opposed the seiz
