The Delta's
Great Show
A Very Successful Event and Well
The Delta  Agricultural  Society
held their  i6th annual exhibition
, on Saturday last, the 26th September on their  spacious grounds, un-
,der   rather   unfavorable    circumstances.    The   weather   ior   some
time previous had been  very un-
v settled, rain ,having fallep for several
,-days just previous to its.jopening,
and lots of gram suffering in the
.fields conduced %i dishearten the
.farmers aad made itself felt iu the
scarcity et exhibits.
All the exhibits, though lacking
in quantity were of decidedly good
, quality.    The root crops were excellent as also was t-he fruit, and
very hard to beat, no matter where
The most noticeable display was
���that from Trenai.t Park, there being sixty entries, many of which
took first prize.    If more interest
..were displayed in individual   exhibits, it would tend to increase the
-number of exhibitors and would be
an inducement to improve the quality and quantity of farm produce
4*rown by each farmer.
In fruit the exhibits were very
varied and of excellent shape,, size
and coloring. It has heen said that
the Lower Mainland was no good
for apples, but last Saturday's exhibit belied tlie statement.
The ladies' work department contained some -very excellent specimens of needlework and lace work,
���work of an order one would .expect
ito meet from professionals and not
..ordiunry farmers' wives and daughters.
The specimens of work -by the
���little ones are a crtdit to any community.

A Remarkable Record.
Chamberlain's Cough Remedy
has a remarkable record. It has
been in use for over thirty years,
duriug which time many million
bottles have been sold and used
It has long been the standard and
main reliau.ee in the treatment of
croup in thousands of homes, yet
during all this time no case has
ever been reported to the manufacturers in which it failed to effect a
cure. When given as soon as the
child becomes hoarse or even as
soon as the croupy cough appears,
it will prevent the attack. It is
pleasant to take, many children like
it. It contains no opium or other
harmful substance and may be
_;iven as confidently to a baby as to
an adult. For sale by F J. MacKenzie.

Chamberlain's Colic, Cholera and
Diarrhoea Remedy, which cured

drydock ls a huge basin in whloh e
fcsel may be placed and from which ths '
|iter can be exhausted In order to expose
' hull  for inspection, cleaning and re-
[ir.    Its sides are sloping and arranged
| steps like an amphitheater.    Entrance
effected through a passage that can be
teed.   The big Brooklyn dock ls 600 feet
ng when the caisson that oloses the en-
bnns is ln place, 180 feet wide at the top
' 1 only 50 feet at the bottom and has a
|)th that InsurcB 25 *_  feet of water on
��� threshold, or sill, at moan high tide.
It Is a far moro delicate job to put a ves-
*. into a drydock properly than ths un-
Htlated Imagine.     Upon ths precision
Dth whloh this undertaking Is oarrlocl ln-
} execution depends the very life of the
Up.   An error of a few Inches may relit in Injuries that will cost thousands of
pilars to repair, If they do not hopelessly
|ln her.   The aim of the offloor ln charge
this work ls to got tho ship ln suoh a
ksttlon that when tho water Is pumped
Jit ot the basin she will sink down on to
[series of carufully arranged blocks ��lon��
no central line of tho dook.    Tho Ore..
pn, for Instance,  hns a displacement of |
Auut  10,000 tons, and  hor weight ls all
orne on  870 of   tliepo supports,  called
���keel blocks."    This is about ISO tons to
Ibloek; hunoe tho need of evenly distrlb- i
���ting a vesKol's weight on llieso blocks.
, The outline of one vessel diffors from
pother, however, and an arrangement of
ocks that would exactly suit one would
���ure to wreck another.    It Is custom-
i therefore, at naval docks to prepare
fn elaborate "docking plan," in advance
jrhenever a ship Is ta be docked.    Drawings of tho vessel herself aro carufully con-
ulted ln order to ascertain  the precise
|*rhapo and length of her keel, the position
the struts that support her screws (If
Pf be a twin icrow vessel), her ruddor
Ind her bilge keels, If she has any.   Tbe
IttQcer In charge of the ta.sk���he belongs
i tho construction bureau���also has meus-
remonts of the dook into which tho ves-
el  is going.    He then mnkos a plan ln
chlch thu position of the ship ls predetor-
nined to an Inch���to a tenth of un inch,
In foot.    The keol blocks are all arranged
In advance.   On either side of tho clock on
pho stone ooplng chulk marks ure placed.
Indicate where bor bow und stern are
|to come.
The great floating steel dam, or caisson,
Siat sorves as a gats to tho dook is first
hauled out of the way.   Stout tugs then
���seize the vessel and work hor around grad-
Ivnlly  Into the basin.    If tbo Vessel la a
���suiall one, like a torpedo boat, perhaps
|��npes tn tho hands of a dozen mon will
riffloe.    Whon sho ls nearly in pl.sce, the
Kttaion ls swung back across tho opening.
"Vater ls then admitted to sink lt until It
[reBts on tho bottom.   Subsequently, when
Steam pumps have exhausted tho water
om the basin, tho pressure of that o,\it-
Jlde against the caisson holds lt firmly ln
Meantime the officer In ohsrge ls directing the final stops ln the tusk of placing
I ths ship.    Lines hnve been run from the
'bow and stern of tho vessel out to the sides
Of the dock and thence to huge capstans.
, By heaving away on one of these and
slacking up another the ship can bo moved
. forward or backward, and the right com-
i blnstlon of strains will bring her to any
desired position.
Opposite the bow and stern, on either
.side of the dook, at the chalk murks previously left there, hnva beon set up partublv
kltands called "battens," by means of which
[one can sight across tbe dock and tell
Whether the ship ib correctly plaoed longitudinally.   Another set of battens at ths
$ead of the dock and on ths caisson give
the range for determining If she is centrally situated with reference to ths sides.
In this latter inquiry the officer's assistants are guided by plummets adjusted ut
the middle ot lines that stretch across the
(look at ths bow and stern and thut sag
, tnough to allow the plummets to go an
Inch or two below ths surface.
It ls also necessary, lt the burden ts to
b�� borns.as it should- be, that ths ship
���hall stand upright and not have nny
"list." In, ease she ls tilted over, even
slightly, to one side this difficulty Is overcome by shifting the weights oh board before tho pumping out pf the water lets the
ship come down on tier supports. From
the sides of the dock against each side of
ths vessel are adjusted spars, culled
"shores." These'occupy a nearly horl-
sontal position and ars designed to prevent tipping over sideways when tho ship
Anally rests on the keel blocks. It tho
ship ls evonly balanoed, the shores will
press very gently against her, but If sho is
not properly balanoed there is danger that
they may punch boles ln her sides.
It takss about two or three hours to
pump out the small granite dool^ nt the
Brooklyn yard and about five hours to
empty tho big timber dook. As soon as
ihe water is ont the ship's sides' are carefully examined. Men on aoaffolds that
swing from her sides sorape off the tiny
snallihell-liks barnacles and ths long,
balry weed tbat thoy find there. This ts
cjone wltb a brush ln which the bristles
are of wire. Whenever, as rarely happens,
ths surface of a ship ls found to be corroded a sand blast is employed to clean the
surface, but this operation if costly and is
seldom needed.
Two or three coats of paint are the>, applied in rapid succession, special compositions being used that dry qulokly. One
of these is designed to protect the plates
from eorroslon and goes next the metal.
Tho outermost ooat ls intended tn prevent
or discourage fouling. Various, trilling
or important repairs ara roods while the
ship is ln dook, and If any great weights
are to be removed and restored a huge derrick ls brought into play. The cleaning
and painting oan be dons, inside of 34
���ours, and if there Is a h,nr,ry eleotrlo
lights can be plaoed so as to enable men
.*�� work under-'the ship as well if night
s* by day.
Removal, like admission, must bo conducted at high tide. The dook ls gradually filled. Ths shores are taken away,
And the ship Is bold ln place only by moor*

Mr. Frederiok Gale, who was a habitus
Of thr lobbies of the house of commons foi
40 years, narrates some of his curious experiences. Referring to Bellamy's kltoh-
on so vividly described by Charles Dickens, and to the members who wero wont
to frequent It, he s.iys: "You got ths
best chop and' steak and oold meat and
salad ln the world, and tho parrot who
eallod 'Order, order!' and 'Chair, cbalrf
and all tho ortos uf tbo house, and the immortal'Jane,'who chaffed evsry one, as
described by Dickens, were still thore,
and members of the government might bo
soon eating their dinner at a real deal
kitchen table. 'Give you a kiss,' Jans
asked cf a young member, who was chaffing her, 'you, a younger son, and only a
borough member? Why, I boxed a duke's
ears for asking such an Impertinent question yesterday.' There was a very different house of commons from the present
one ln those days."
An amusing story Is told of Lord Palm-
erston, who bad just had a stormy Interview with a deputation whloh came to
memorialize blm on the subject of the
wino duties. Just as they wore leaving
the room a sudden thought struck him,
and ho called them back and said: "Perhaps, gentlemen, a recollection of my boyhood muy help you. When a boy, my
grandfather took me with hlm to stay at
Lord Pembroke's. After dinnor his lordship said: '1 hope you liked my wine. I
did my best to please you. As a member
of tho government I ought not to tell you
tbat I got my claret and champagne direct
through a smuggler. 1 am answerable
for tho port, as I mudo lt myself.' Old
Pam had hit the bullseye, and the deputation retired with much laughter."
The reminiscences that center ln John
Bright are equally amusing. For example: "I call to mind hearing him ln is*l
In the house of commons on the appointment of a new bishop of Manchester.
Quoting from memory, as I do throughout, ho said: 'You wanted a new bishop
of Jerusalem a short time ago. How did
that holy man go outf With his staff and
his scrip, liko one ot the apostles? Not a
bit of lt. He wont out on her majesty's
steam frigate Retribution and landed, under a salute of 18 guns, not far from tho
spot whoro Simon lodged with the tastier.' "-.-Fortnightly Review.
Ro Better Man For His BsilnuiCoSlI
Be Found.
"There's the best collector ln Detroit,"
and the head of the firm indicated the man
on whom this praise bud lieen bestowed.
"He doesn't look It."
"No, nor anything like it, yet I helluva
that his appearance is about 90 per cent of
his stock in trade. Just size him up. Did
you ever see a more ingenuous face? He
got his job just as he gets money from
debtors that are bad pay. He came right
to mo and asked for employment. I told
blm we were uot in neod of any one and
followed tho usual form in tolling him to
call again. Ho took the Invitation literal
ly, walked around the block and dropped
In to mako another application. 'You told
me to call again,' he said. 'Want a good
man?' I did the usual thing once mote,
carelessly asking him to call again. Another trip around the block, and he put Id
bis third appearance, once more informing
mo that be was a good m:m in search of a
job. I tried him, and he proved a foot
time winner.
"Then it straok mo that ho would mako
a collector if he carried his persistency Into his work, and be has proved a wonder.
He has realized on old aooounts that ws
bad given up as hopeless long ago, simply
wearing debtors down to where they would
rather pay than be bothered any further.
One sharp rascal who makes no pretense
of paying his debts told our phenomenon
that he would have to get up very early in
the morning to get anything out of blm.
Our man was at that fellow's house at
8:80 a. m., routed him out and actually
got the money. Ho never tires and nevor
lets go. Another maddened debtor told
blm to sing for his money, and 'Old Reliable' simply took a stool ln the office and
sawed away on 'Old Grimes Is Dead' till
he got the oash. He's an odd stick, but
he's a world beater."���Detroit Free Press

Mr. A. Curly ls writes: "A much perverted account of the following incident
hns for yoars appeared at Intervals ln
newspapers. Tho story whon correotly told
Is not without Interest and even humor
and Is very ohuruoterlstlc of Carlyle. In
the autumn of 1874 Carlyle ond his niece,
Miss M. 0. Aitkon, wero visiting at the
huuse of Mr. Patrick Swan, then provost
of Kirkcaldy and at a date long anterior
a pupil of Carlylo. Qn the Sunday evening Mr. Swan and his guests wero assembled after dinner ln the drawing room,
and some ono proposed that Carlyle should
read aloud for the entertainment of ths
eompany-r-a rather large one. He readily
consented, and seeing tho Bible lying on
tbe tablo ho opened It at the beginning of
Job, bis favorite book.
"No sooner had he seized the Bible,
however, than in marched thu servants one
aftor another, a,pd Corlyle perceived that
be was, as it were, trapped into conducting family worship. How to get out of ths
dilemma? There seemed nothing for it
but to road and to keep on reading and to
await what time and chunco might bring.
Ho began with the first chapter of Job and
road chapter after chapter, making remarks now and again on striking passages.
After this sontonco, 'Is there any taste ln
the white of an egg?' he exclaimed, 'God
bless me, I never knew that was ln Job!'
or 'I bad quite forgotten that was in Job.'
A little while after that his niece cams
forward to the table, and touching hit
arm whispered, 'Unole, do you not think
vou have read enough for one night?' He
���jsvo her a pleasant smile, but continued
(ending and expounding. i.ftor two or
three more chapters had been overtaken
bis nieoe again oame forward and said
quietly, 'Uncle, you really ought to stop,
yon see, the servants aro all in ths room,
and they'll have work to do yet.' On thli
being said, or whispered, to him bo suddenly rose, shsi the book with emphnsls,
saying loud enough for all to hear, 'Well,
If I'm not to be allowed to
suppose I must stop,' and walked out of
tho room with an air ot offended dignity.
On going to his room soou afterward his
nieco found hlm laughing and rejololng at
his happy escape. His flrst words to her
were: 'I hope, lass, thou's not offended!
I oould not see how else to get ou,t of it.'"
