TUESDAY ENTERTAINMENT.
Tke first Baptist Christmas Sunday entertainment will be held on
Friday,. December the 22nd. The
scholars are in course of preparation
fer the event which promises to be
unusually interesting. Further announcements later.
Next Tuesdav a rare treat will
be provided by the entertainment
committee. Rev. HebertW. I'ierey
will give one of his splendid elocutionary rehearsals in the Odd Fellows'Hal'. There will be in addition choice musical selections by
the best local entertainers interspersed throagh the programme. A
second instalment of tickets has
been printed so great has been the
demand. Admission 25 cents, children 15 cents.
TTne S. S. Sonoma will make
regular trips every week day to and
from Steveston. Leave Ladner 8
a. tn. and 4 p. m. Returning leave
|sStevest.on 9. a. in, and 5 p. ui.
that same element is apt to imagine
that its payment of the license confers upon it the privilege of trespassing en enclosed lands.
What we farmers want, and what
we are going*to have, is the right
to summarily arrest anyone found
trespassing on our premises, foi
only then, and not till then, will
this trespass nuisance be checked.
Mr. City Sporting Man, what
happens when you find a stranger
prowling about your premises? Do
you ask for his name ai.d address
with the view of serving him with
a summons? Not much! That's
the time the police get a real hurry
call,
Here's about the way this summons business works out with us.
You see a man (or several) in
your pasture with a gun, aud in
close proximity to that gun perhaps
stand some of your unsuspecting
flocks and herds, all oblivions ot
possible danger. You are hard at
work some distance off, perhaps at
fall plowing, or hauling produce it
may be. So you drop whatever
you happen to be doing at the time,
and start after the shooter, and having reached that gentleman, with
more or less picturesque language,
as warrated by the circumstances,
you tell him to leave. As often as
not, he will want to stand and argue
the point, Lut eventually move-i off
���to where? Whv the next field,
and there begins over again. So
after losing considerable time and
temper, you have returned to your
work, when���Bang, bang, and off
go your scared cattle or horses, or
both, or it may be a pig has got it
in the neck.
Then next Sunday you go to
church aud apologize for the language.
1 Ask oue of that ilk for his name
I and address, and you get either
J fictitious information or "lip." And
it is not by any means the "ho,;d-
lum" element only which makes itself obnoxious to the farmer, for it
is not long since a well known professional gentleman was put off certain premises. And yet another
phase of the trespass nuisance is
the Sunday shooter.
This farming community is a Sabbath respecting "community, and it
is intolerable that its ears should be
assailed every Sunday, whether in
American Bail Ti^s for $2.35 at
G. T. Baker's.
Bordeaux mixture prevents this
disease, and on plantations where
the siagle crop system is followed j
this is the most practical and effective remedy. When two crop3 are
taken from the plantation, mowing and burning the leaves on the
rows immediately after the season
of berry picking closes, is the practice in some localities.
MILDEW    (SPH.EROTHECA    CASTAG-
NE1���I*SN.)
In dry seasons tbis fungus, which
causes the leaves to curl, covering
them with a thin cobweb-like coating, lessens the crop very materially.
Like gooseberry and grape mildew,
the fruit is also attacked.
REMEDIES.
If Bordeaux mixture is used in
early spring as a rust preventive,
this disease will also be checked.
If it appears to an injurious extent
when the berries are ripening, flour
of sulphur may be used advantageously. When this is scattered
between the plants, the fumes given
off under the action of the sun's
rays have a preventive action upou
the growth of the fungus.

BRACING THE NERVES.
The number of people who suffer
from "nerves" is very remarkable.
It is the same in every country, and
every nationality seems to have its
one particular method for "bracing
the nerves." Tea drinking isalmcst
an international cure, but experts tell
us that this is the least successful.
It acts as a tonic, but the re-action
is very harmful. Perhaps the best
"bracer" for tired nerves is cold
water. Russians make the most use
of this cure. The face is splashed
in cold water, and the hands held
in for iour or five minutes. Then
half a glas-- of pure fresh water is
taken. The Japanese find very
hot milk, sipped slowly, very beneficial, and this, by the way, is
strongly recommended by many
medical men in this country. Many-
French doctors advise patients who
are suffering from nerves to sit
quietly for half-an-hour barefooted.
���Ex.
We are in receipt ot some very
handsome calendars, viz., Marshall
Smith, "Playmates"; H. J. Hutcherson, "Making Friends"; Stokes
& Cullis, "The Choice of the Market," and Harvey Creech, "A
Memory of Long Ago." All of the
above are works of art, and a peculiar feature noticeable is the very
striking resemblance of two of the
characters to two of our local children.

SATUKDAY, KOVEMBUR 25,   1905.
.Suppose someone runs into the
tence put around Curtis' Island,
who will foot the bill?
Ueaiflents of Delta are very awkwardly situated at present with regard, to up river communication.
I^is up ie.Westminster's citiiens to
do something. They need to wake
up some before it is too late.
A, road once opened may onlv be
dosed for repairs, and that-does not
mean that i*/ shall take six. months
or a year in doing. When a barricade is thrown 'across a street the
���Zo-uncil are in duty bound to place
a light at each ot the obstructions.
(Continued from First   Page')
op.out of church, by the noise from
the-city pot-hunter's gun.
I have a gun and like to use it
sometimes,.but it mostly happens
that when I do hit the trail there is
nothing doing, for birdie has long
since been scared to parts unknown
by self-invited sports.
Mr. Farmer, you remember that
fellow who asked permission to
shoot over your land? You said all
right, and how pleasaut he was,
and what nice things he said to the
Mrs. av��d tbe kiddies. Then the
Isiddies went to tbe upstairs win-
4ows to see the strange man at
Work, and how they counted seven,
eight, nine or ten cocks he brought
down ,.tbey didn't count the hens),
all fed and fattened on your grain.
^y the way, pheasants, do eat
wireworms, but it is only to sharp-
ej(v,their appetites for more grain.
And do you remember when be
weiit away, bow many brace of
t|ipse birds he insisted on forcing
on you?**
The next time you-saw him was
On Granville street, and funny as it
was he didn't see you, I think it-
would be found; very difficult and
expensive to collect a gun license iu
this province of ours, as its. area is
so great, and the populatio so
small- and scattered. Then you
will have to consider the Indians,
miners and prospectors, etc., who
depend .tt?' a great extent on their
guns for food.
The farmers o�� the settled districts have game protection largely
ia their own htvids.    It has already
been mooted to form a Delta Farmers' Gun Club, and if this materializes, it will accomplish more than
any act of tbe Legislature or any
number.of;game._ wardens.    Next I
would remind tbwt. I^adner meeting
that it was through urgent representations, ol the Uelta  farmers to
t}i_   provincial   government    that
geese were p!{H-t:ri pit  the  tree list,
and the arguments then  used hold
equally good to-day.   All wild low!
are   certainly very scarce around
here riow, to wh it thry were some
tSfteeaj or^ tweojy years  ago,  but
.SflQOtitxg is- in  no  way responsible
for that;    Since their the country
l��as all been d>ked*nd drained, and
.{is no longer, the marshy tract of
l|p'd it'onoe was.    Then the fields
with.several inches of
water most of the wiuter, and often,
too, in the fall, before the grai
was all in, and on these fields ducks
swam about in their countless thousands. But ducky can't do that
any more, so he has left us. You
sports may regret the changed conditions, but no Delta farmer will
sympathise with you, for with the
departure of the wild fowl* there
dawned on him (.he 'artier) an era
of easy prospeiity. In conclusion,
Mr. Editor, I think that what is
wanted just now is:
1. A change in the Trespass Law,
giving the right of summary arrest
on fenced lands.
2. A reasonable tax on dealers in
game who should be compelled under 1 enalty of forfeiture of their license to keep a record, open at any
time for inspection,, giving details
of all their transactions in game.
3. Resident farmers should have
the right of taking game, at any
time of the year on their own land
only, and for their own use exclusively.
Free miners at present are accorded greater privileges than this,,
for they can take any game anywhere, and at any time, for their
own use, and don't bave to raise it,
either. Yours truly,
TATERS.

There are openings for young men in che business world
as stenographers or clerks. Woi.i:.. are eligible for the 5:1*11*.
positions, what could youdo in such a position? Are you a good

No Poison in Chamberlain's Cough
Remedy.
From Napier, New Zealand, Herald: Two years ago the Pharmacy
Board of New South Wales, Australia, had analysis made of the
cough medicines that were sold in
that market. Out ofthe entire list
tbey found only oue that they declared was entirely free from all
poisons. This exception was Chamberlain's Cough Remedy, made by
Chamberlain Medicine Company,
Des Moines, Iowa U.S.A. The absence of all narcotics makes this remedy the safest aud best that can be
Iliad; aud it is with a feeling of security that any mother can give it
jto her little ones. Chamberlain's
I Cough Remedy is especially recommended by its makers for coughs,
colds, croup ana whooping cough.
This remedy is for sale by F. J.
MacKenzie.

IJl.toverln-r m Gold Mine.
Gold was discovered in California tn
1848 and ln Colorudo In 1858. The discovery was accidental in both casta,
and the fact created tbe impression
tbat mines were "lying around loose."
Adventurers drifted about in hone of
".tumbling upon a mine." .Mr. Thayer
In bis "Marvels of tbe New West"
mentions several instances of lucky
"stumbling." Three men while looking for gold In California discovered
the dead body of a um;i who evidently
had been prospecting. "Poor fellow!"
said one of i':e trio. ''Hi lias paused in
his cheeks." "Let's give !..ui a decent
burial," said another. "Some wife or
mother will be glad if ever she knows
It." Tbey began to dig u grave. Three
feet below the surface tbey discovered
signs of gold. Tbe stranger was buried
in another place, and where they had
located, a grave tbey opened a gold
mine.

Tee first Iron _ht|>.
The first iron ship has more reputed
birthplace, thsu Homer, according to
Chambers' Journal. Both the Clyde
und the Mersey claim pre-eminence in
this respect. Sir E. J. Hobison of Edinburgh designed au Iron vessel In 181U,
which was not launched till three years
later, and it is said that an iron boat
was worked on tbe Severn even as far
back as 17S7. .Steel wns not used in the
construction of merchant ships' hulls
until 1850. Old salts were not alone In
their belief that wood was meant by
Providence to float, but iron to go to
tbe bottom. A naval constructor of
some repute once said: "Don't talk to
uie of iron ships. They are contrary to
nature." Now none but small craft ore
built of wood in England.
