RULE FOR BREATHING
If one's health is impaired, or if
he wants to preserve his power to
-resist disease, he must first ot all,
give attention to hia breathing.
Even food and driafk are second in
importance to this, for one can live
for days without nutrition save the
air breathed, but if deprived of that.
��v��n for a few minutes, life ceases.
Here are some oftthe first rules for!
acquiring a correct method of.
breathing, as -given by a specialst
who hat made an exhaustive study
.ofthe subject: .First���After retiring at night, release body and mind
from all tension, and take full and
Tegular inhalations through your
nostrils; hold the breath :tibout one
second; take all the time you can
tto exhale it; keep this up until you
are weary or Jail asleep.   .Second-
When you wake in the morning,
repeat tt he exercise at least for five
minutea; longer, if time permits.
Third���During the day, take as
many full respirations as possible,
exercising care with the exhalations. -While taking these exercises, -one should bear in mind the.
thought "that he is inhaling new
life and ;power.���Success.

"The trouble with the average
woman," said tho Femtale Rights
lecturer, "it a lack of decision."
"Yes." inteorupted the male dyspeptic, who had no rightito be there
et ell, "half of them don't know
whether they want ito Ibe women
or tMn."������.Philadelphia jPiess.
SUGAR BEETS.
America grows the highest grade
of beets in the wotld.and once the
economies of the industry shall
have been worked out .our own factories will be able to furnish the
American people with sugar at less
cost than by importing Jit, and besides that we will keep our money
at home, develop our 'Country end
make homes for our people.
The United States .Department of
Agriculture estimates that 233.000
tons of beet sugar will be produced
in this country this year. The
crop in Michigan ia expected tto
yield 74,000 tons; California, *6s,-
000 tons; and Colorado, 44,000
tons. Eleven new factories have
been started up during the yenr,
six in Michigan, three in Colorado,
sone^ Utah .and sone in Idaho-
Put In Successful Tender
���Will Be a Great Improvement -to Delta's
Capital.
The'local Lodge of Odd Fallows,
a branch of one of the greatest and
most-progressive of fraternal societies, has, byits decision to erect a
business block in Ladner, given an
impetus to'the progress of the'town
which will have no small effect in
improving its position as a commercial centre. That the eorifi-
dence in 'the future ef -/the town
thus evinced is not misplaced we do
not doubt Situated as we are, the
only town ia the -richest agricultural district in British Columbia,
the future of Ladner is .certainly
very promising.
On Wednesday evening last the
contract fox the erection of this
block son the .southeast corner of
Delta and Trenaat streets, -was
awarded to  Messrs.  Paterson  &
Surrey Council.
Council met in the Town HaU,
Surrey Centre, January 23rd, with
tbe Reeve.and all.the membeie present.

From the committee, re Miftcc
case, as follows:
We, 'the committee appointed to
investigate the Milton waiter case,
beg to report as follows: After careful inspection we have decided that
the cheapest and most feasible
way in which to dispose of the said
water is by a ditch, west from the
culvert, along 'the Milton road to
building, as called for in the plans
and specifications, should prove of
interest to -the community in general
The building, which is to be a
two-storay one, will have a frontage on Delta stroet of 40 feet, with
a depth of 70 feet. The design ot
the front of the building is such as
to afford the best of lighting to the
several interiors whilst at the same
rime presenting a very sdlid and
substantial appearance. The ground
floor will be divided into store,
bask and club premises. A. Clausen, jeweller, will occupy the corner store, which is to be 11x24 feet.
The Royal Bank of Canada have
leased the remaining and greater
portion of the front part -of the
building, whilst the rear portion, a
spacious-room, 24x40 feet, will be
fitted in an up-to-date manner as a
billiard and club room. The lodge
iTOom will .occupy the -greater por-
ton of the upper floor, being about
18x45 feet, with a large platform at
either end and a smaller one running along each side. The elaborate arrangement of vestibule and
ante-rooms will make this one ot
the most convenient and complete
lodge rooms in the province. The
entrance, which is on the side and
rear of the building, is made into a
vestibule 19x24 feet. From this a
right and left regalia -room opens
also two ante-rooms <on either side
which communicate with each
other and with the lodge room. Another veijrj interesting feature ofthe
building is the large dining rroom
on the upper floor. This will be
11x69 feet, affording'.plenty of .room
for banquets of the largest kind.
The front of the lower storey will
have four large plate glass windows,
one opening into the store and three
into the Bank. The arrangement
ofthe banking rooms require-special mention.    The .public banking

SATURBAY, JANUARY  JO,   1904.
PUNCTUALITY! ���
At the initial meeting.* of the 1904
Gjuncil. held on January it, the
Reeve, R. Ki Kittson; sounded a
aittfe which ought tobe re'echoed
by everjr^member of the Council.
It is tike keynote of success,; "Punctuality." If ertty member of the
CWmci. will practice h, not only in
the time of meeting, but also in attending to the manifold' duties
connected with their office;* they
-Will earn fbV tfiemselYe* *ah enviable reputation, and oftentimes' save
the Municipality expense* whifch
Would1 other-wise be incurred.'
Mission Band.-
A* meeting was held in the Baptist Church, on Sunday last when a
Mission Band was formed among
the little * folk - for the purpose of
learning something of the Misson-
ary work being done at heme and
abroad. We would advise* the
parents attending occasionally with
the little ones, and so encourage
them in this instructive work.
The first set of officers elected
were: President, Leila Kirkland;
vice-president, Ruth Miller; secretary, Ella Stainton; treasurer, Olga
Kirkland; Brad leader, Mrs. (Rev.)
A. A. McLeod. Fifteen members
were enrolled at this initial meeting.
After singing, Mrs. McLeod
drilled the Band on the names of
the Mission stations ��� among the
Telugus, India. The pronunciation of the names' and tha spelling
of them occupied a good deal of
time. Then telling a little about
boarding schools in India, Mrs.
McLeod read a letter' descriptive of
work in the Tuni boarding school.
After singing again, and the Tel-
ugu* greeting ��� "Salanie" ���"the
meeting closed.

THE LAWYER'S STORY
Tlie young men had made great
preparations for dieir fishing trip in*
tto tk* Indian Territory, and their
disappointment was deep when, on
rhe very morning they were to start,
the lawyer, whom they all liked, told
them he could not go. To make the
matter worse, his explanations were
very lame and unsatisfactory; it was
evident that he had given up the trip
for 3-ome reason which he hesitated
to name.
As a last resort the others went ih
a body���six of them���to his office,
and demanded that he tell them exactly why he had deserted, when he
had been most enthusiastic in planning the outing.
"If you're really to understand it,"
H* said, "I shall have to begin with
my own boyhood. My father, the
b"e_t father, I think, that a boy ever
had, always showed me a tenderness
which even as a child, I knew was
somehow different from the love
which my playmates had from their
parents. It was not until I was perhaps fourteen years old that he told
me why this was so.
"Although he himself lived a most
exemplary life, his father, his father's
father, and two of his uncles had been
drunkards The ttiste for liquor he
Believed to be hereditary in our family and in me he'had recognized many
of the traits he himself possessed, and
Which had made his life a long fight
against the habit of drink. He
pointed out the danger that lay before
me, and begged me to give him my
promise never, under any circumstances, to touch liquor 'It is your
dhly safety,' he said. 'Unless you
make this resolution, and have the
strength tb keep it, the odds will be
fatally against you, for, like myself,
you are easily influenced by others.
If I thought that to-morrow you were
to take your first drink, I should pray
to God that you might die today.'
"Of ceurse I promised. He had
never talked to me in that way before
and of course it made an impression
on me. I was frightened, and for
several years I kept my promise.
Then I went with some other young
fellows on an all-day fishing-trip.
While we were eating our luncheon
one of' tftrt* number, a boy whom we
all admired, took a bottle of whiskey
from his pocket, drank from it, and
passed it to his next neighbor. The
botle went round the circle, for no
one dared refuse to follow George
Reitz's lead When it came to me I
tried to pass it on without drinking,
but the others began to tease and
riducule me, until from sheer cowardice I took the driiik. A second and
a third followed, and I began to realize, and I liked the stuff, and wanted
more of it. . My fathers warning
flashed across my mind:
"If you take one d'rfnk you may be
for ever lost!"
"The rest of the day passed wretchedly enough, and I was glad when it
Was time to start for home. When
I reached the house I found that .my
father, whom I had left in good health
fn the morning, was lying at the point
of death. He had had a sudden attack of heart disease. They told nie
he was very anxious to see me alone,
and with a breaking heart I entered
his room.
"He could not move and could
hardly speak, but as I took his hand
and bowed my head upon it, crying,
he smiled tenderly and lovingly on
nie. When 1 grew calmer he spoke,
although thc effort was pitiful to witness:
"Be strong���mother's sake���my
take���Kiss me."
"As I bent dowt* to kiss him, he
noticed the odor of liquor in my
breath. I shall never forget the look
of. agony, of despair, in his eyes.
"My poor���lost���boy!" he groaned;
and these were his last words.
"Since that day, God helping me, I
have never touched a drop of liquor.
But I know my weakness. I don't
care to expose myself to temptation,
and I never knowingly go where
lipuor is used. This morning while
the provision w.-tggon was being
loaded, I saw that some one had sent
along a case* of whiskey. Forgive
mc, boys; I'm not preaching nor finding fault witli you, btlt you see now
why I can't go."
"You cm go, a*nd you sha-11 go."
spoke up the judge, who had provid-
, ��d the case of liquor, "for the whisky
is going to stay here." So the lawyer went, and a jollier, ftca-lAiier,
fiappier outing none of the men. ever

The first ball given by the above
society in aid of its funds was held
in the Town Hall, last night, and
all agree that it was a great success
both in attendance and financially.
The only drawback was the music
furnished by a Blaine orchestra
which would stand improvement,
The supper was catered by the
Delta Hotel, at which everything
that was good for the inner man
was supplied in quantity and quality, and to which, it is safe to say,
all nid ample justice.

space will be about 10x25 feet. A
good sized manager's office will
open off of this. The office behind
the counter will be exceedingly
spacious whilst stationery, store
and private rooms will open off this.
A fire and burglar proof vault will
be a special feature of the office.
The counters will be finished in
natural woods and the whole, when
couipleted, will make one of the
finest banking offices in the province outside the cities.
Altogether it is apparent we are
to have a block which will be a
credit to the town and district. H.
J. Cresswell, the architect, is certainly to be congratulated on the
manner of his arrangement of the
various details. The building is to
be ready for occupation not later
than 25th April next.

Billy Jones wrote on the blackboard:
"Billy Jones can hug the girls better than any boy in school."
The teacher, seeing it, called him
up.     "William, did  you write  that?"
"Yes, ma'am," said Billy.
"Well, you can stay after school,"
said she.
The children waited for Billy to
come out, when they began to guy
him,     "Got licken, didn't ye?"
"Nope," said Bill.
"Get jawed?"
"Nope."
"What did she do?" they asked.
"Shan't tell," said Bill, "but it pays
to advertise."

Rev. A. Mogee, late of East

It is gratifying to observe that
the price of lumber has evidently
gone down and slabs gone up. You
will see this by the "extensive" repairs being made around the wharf
���nd approaches at Ladner.
H. Macklin left for Victoria, yesterday, and expects to leave for the

J. H. Todd, of New Westminster,
agent for the Singer Sewing Machine Company, had an exciting
time with his horse and rig on the
road between Ladner and Port Guichon on Thursday. It ended by
Mr. Todd, horse and rig being piled
up regardless in the ditch. With
the aid of yassers-by, and much
rope and tackle everything was finally brought to terra firma. Nothing was hurt, but we would advise
Mr. Todd to not feed his plug on
Delta oats so heavily, as the quality
is too good for a horse not used to
them and are liable to excite his
risabilities.
