of which is to encourage the production and general use of seed of
superior quality for farm crops. Experience has shown that in all kinds
of farm crops the yield per acre may
be materially increased and the
���quality substantially improved by
the use of seed which has been

DELTA MILLS LIMITED.
Our readers ot to-day's paper
will find in another column a notice
of a meeting called by the Reeve,
on Monday next at 3 p.m.. for the
purpose of organizing a joint stock
company to build and equip an oatmeal mill, which company when incorporated will be in a position to
carry on the business of millmen 01
any business that they may desire
to go into. Last year's crop must
have demonstrated to auy farmer
who studies his own interests that.
had this mill been erected, as proposed last year, a very large amount of the oats that were d.imaged
by the rains could have been saved,
as in every properly equipped mill
there is always a drying kiln used
for that purpose, and '-should such
weather happeu again this season it' the most central for the subscribers
will certainly demonstrate the fact
again. It is to the interests of all
concerned that this meeting should
be well attended aud that the subject should be thoroughly ventilated
and brought to a successful issue,
as it means thousands of dollars to
the farmers of the Lower Fraser,
and will surely place the farmers in
a position to sell th��ir crops to the
best advantage, as it is well known
that the profits on oatmeal and
other cereal foods is out of all proportion to what the farmer receives
for the ra%y material, and the farmer, through a small expense, would
be entitled to receive all the benefits
to be derived.
We are requested to st ite that
the re.ison of this meeting being
held at East Delta is that it is considered under present circumstances
! the very best corn thev   could   find
for a  high percentage  of protein.
The   good   corn   contained   about
9 per ceut of protein.    Then  they
planted rows from the ears  having
the highest precentage  of protein,      ^���^^_______

Glorious 4tb>
The Glorious Fourth at the Point
Was celebrated in true American
style with the finest of fine weather
and a calm, blue sea to beautify the
scene. The day's festivities commenced with a grand parade, headed by the national flags of three
great nations, borne by representatives of each���American, in the
centre, British, on the right, and
Chinese, on the left; next came the
Ladner Cornet Band. 15 pieces;
then the Liberty float, containing
the goddess of Liberty (Miss Sam-
uelson) and 23 other pretty girls,
very prettily attired; next came a
company of citizens on foot, carriages laden with picnicersand sightseers, followed by the wild West
show and other wonders. In all it
was a good turn out.
The parade wound up in a field
along the waterfront, when a neat
and witty speech was delivered by
W. H. Barker, followed by "Yankee Doodle" by the school children;
reading of the Declaration of Independence by Geo. Sidwell was followed by "My Country 'Tis Of
Thee," "Marching Through Georgia," and "Columbia Gem of the
Ocean" by the school children; the
Band closing the morning programme with "God Save the King."
In the afternoon came the sports,
the majority of the prizes crossing
the border in the evening, as will
be seen by the accompanying prize
list:
100-yds. Dash���1st, L. Ladner;
2nd, W. H. Wilson.

son; 2nd, Bert Alexander.
Bicycle Race���1st, Leon Ladner;
2nd  W. Dickson.
Lacrosse Match���Ladner, 8 goals;
Guichon, 3 goals.
The lacrosse teams put up a very
nice afternoon's sport, and everything went well with the exception
of two or three extra hard ones on
Jimmie's ribs.
The Band found it a little diffi
cult to play on account of the dust
and a scarcity  of water,   but they
turned  out  a  very nice  series  of
excellent and appropriate music.
In the evening a grand ball was
given in a, very commodious hall
on the wharf, accompanied by a
handsome display of fireworks, containing three set pieces.
The committee are to be congratulated on the manner in which
everything was run off. Messrs.
Maiien, Waters . and Beadleston
constitute a very worthy executive.

oarry them f;y tbe thousands. Wo most
lave pillows���pillows on the divans, pil
lows on the vide window seats, pillows in
ibe chairs, pillows bare, pillows there, pil
lows everywhere.
Tbe lad is not only a woman's fad; it
is also a man's, and the lords of creation
���are just as crazy over pillows as the weaker sex. It seems as if all the world were
pillow mad. And there is a certain individuality about theso pillows now. Ths
characteristic; of their owners ar* in a
measure stamped upon them.
Sometime., tha fad is for Turkish pillows; then it will suddenly change to silk
.covering, with loll ruffles, and again it
will yeit arei'.nd to the ordinary,*verydaj
denim. Tho style of covering iu��y cbunpe,
but the necessity for pillows, large, small
and medium, remains undisputed, .here
is hardly any fad whieh allows of a greater
field, for one's own individual fancy, ch
���early any kind of a covering will go, pro-
tided you bnvo plenty of pillows.
On* reason perhaps for their popularity
lies in tb* luct that a woman with auy
knack for fancy work can make ber own
pillows and save considerable money by so
*lloing. Then, again, a girl in a quandary
f 0 to what to Klve ber beat young man oan
Make him a pillow. Sometimes, however,
il tbe man is one of tbose unfortunate
���jacbolors who live in the hall room of
iomo boardi :->g house, with hardly spue.
fo turn a cut. around, tha gift of a pillow
Is an embarrassment rather than a pleasure.
But today, wben tbe majority cf men
���re in bachelor apartments, no matter hew
���mall tbey iiiuy.be, tb* pillow is just tho
thing tbey need. A man who bas novei
bad a pillow nioee not orave them, but ki
blm once find out how comfortable and
luxurious a great pile of down pillows Is,
���n no matter how uncomfortublo a lounge,
tbe craze will seize him, and he will le-
come more pilliw mad than any woman.

��(the dwellers of the orient.
One large dealer in articles from the
cast told mo that the cushion fad was
greater now than it hud ever been before.
"We have mure orders for oriental corners," be said, "than we bave had since I
Started In business. Every woman furnishing a house must have one, and seven-
tsiiths nt*. .hue furnishing apartments devote some y-'.rt of the drawing room or
divan room, as the small room off the
drawing room is now called, toua oriental
or Japanese cozy cornor.
"We make onr divans to order, to fit tho
corners we are called upon to furnish, and
we receive Instructions for pillows according to tbe length of the customer's purse.
You can never bave too many pillows on
��� divan. The more you have tbe more
comfortably you rest. Along with your
pillows you must have a lantern. They
Invariably go together.
"We have a number of orders from mon.
They ore more enthusiasts about pillows
than riio wemen are. If a man taxes up
a fad, he wlll always go to greater lengths
with it, for th* reason, that be is not so
volatile as a woman, and if bo has one fad
he devote* himself entirely to tbat one
thing."
At one of the large -bops they told ine
they bad innumerable orders for pillows
especially deigned for men, with colli ri
colors, society or military monograms,
yachting,' athletic or Fporting designs, and
even private crests and monograms. The
college pillows aro, as a rule, hope in stock,
but tbe others aro mado to order. As soon
as a man enters a college be must bave a
pillow of thc college colors. Theso piJinvvf

Just now the Turkish pillow is the most
popular with women. The heavy gold embroidery on tbe rich red, blue, green and

"Tlienew yearof 1S84 was only 19day��

our comrade at work. We Baid little. Only
one man so fir forgot that he was a soldier as to make the faintest sign.
"But ihe nearness of the end touched

THE   MEW MAN'S   TEDIOUS   SEAKCH
FOR THE NEW WOMAN.
I8r Walter Be.ast'a Opinion of Sank
Grand'. l.ovt-Iy Ideal���lie Also Hat
koiiD-tlsiiiK to Say About the Deai
014 Wouiaa.
When a man takes np the "new woman" question seriously or s.rlo comically,
lie Is apt to be interesting. Sir Waltei
Eesant has something to fi:y about Sural
Grand's ideal of the new woman.
"In the current number ot a monthly
(Jagazliie coiled The Lady's Realm then
is a paper by -Sarah Grand,' which I h��v��
read with tlio greatest interest-," writes Sil
Walter. "The author is a special pleader.
She is an advocate retained for thedefonse.
Bhe bus thrown be? whole strength and
ber whole soul into tbe defense, and she
defends tho new woman at tho expense oi
the old woman. What is the new woniar,
according to her latest and uhlost advocate?
'She is new in perfection of her physique,
��� stronger, better, more beautiful cruatuis
than the bluckheud majority can conceive.
She is magnanimous by nature, for al)
that makes life worth having is hers. She
Is conspicuous for gentlehood, for courtesy
���nd kindness. Her health is radiant, hoi
manners charming, her wit tuking, her
morals unimpeachable. Her sense of humor is always on tha alert. Good humoi
ls ono of her attributes. She cannot comprehend why people should differ with bitterness. What she chiefly demands is tbat
ehe should havo fair play. She has full
faith in man's ultimate perfection, otherwise she would not tolerate liim for a moment.1 Thore I I hope I have not misrepresented the writer. Sarah Grand has, in s
word, portrnyed the new woman as shi
herself imagines her. She has revealed hei
own ideal. Well, I am tbe last person tc
raise any objection. It is always good tc
construct and to cherish ideals. I do nol
know, for my own part, any new woman
quite so perfect as Sarah Grand's. Bui
���ho will become something to look for, and
the search will certainly lend a new pleasure to life.
"'Are you,'I shall ask one girl af tei
the other, 'the new woman���the ideal?'
'"Alas!1 she will reply, 'I am not; roj
���ense of humor is deficient,' or 'my man
nersaro awkward,' or'my health Is not
What I should like it to bo.' "
O ee upon a time the new man, wb(
was about live and twenty went in searor
of the new woman. He adopted Sara.
Grand's ideal���in fact, it would have beer
difficult to frame, for himself, an ideal tt
perfectly charming.
"I will search for the new woman," ht
���aid, "until I find her. I will hunt foi
tier in all tho corners of tbe earth���yea,
���ven unto the very end thereof."
So ho set out ou his travels. At first ht
Confined himself to his native country.
He started with confidence in London so
Cioty; ho attended balls and dinner parties with zeal; he attended meetings nnd
discussions; he joined societies and clubs
be went to Cambridge and was Introduced
to Nownhara. I know not bow many
years he spent in this pursuit, but ho wat
past 30 before he (Insisted.
"Let me be just," he said. "I bnvj
found ��h_o very delightful girls, ber.uti
ful, clever, well bred, strong iu health,
but I cannot find my ideal. In one point
er other every girl is wanting. One, foi
Instance, frankly despises man; anothci
may be witty, but sbe is not kindly'; while
I have not found a single girl who can
differ or endure difference without bitterness."
So he went abroad. He tried Germany
���it is the land of philosophy, but he did
not stay there long. France���It is the land
Where women reign. Somehow the new
Woman does not exist in such a kingdom.
America, which is the paradise of women.
But tho new woman, he remembered, doei
Bot like to be worshiped. So he came back
to Kngland. By this time all that wai
left of his hair bad gone gray, and he pre-

At this period and after this lengthened
search he met tbe new wonian herself.
Ves, sho was beautiful; she was young;
she was tall and finely made; Ehe wat
clever; she was Witt;1; she was Well bred;
she was well educated, and, in conversation, tie frankly admitted that tin- unrated man���not on account of his actual
qualities, but solely on aocoant of his possibilities.
'Thank heaven!" cried the discoverer.
"I Lave found at length the object oi i���y
lifelong search. 'Ii.gether, new woman,
We will tread the upward path."
Sho looker ut- him; she laughed at hlm;
her >>riiHo of huntor, as belonged to the
ideal, being always on the alert.
"i'eor old boy!" (he (-aid kindly.
'���'I'/'i-ud tho upward path with j;:": Why,
yon are 70. Vou nre unfit for clinililng.
You've got no possibilities loft. You have
lost your chauces while ycu v.-er-K running

So, you see, it may be very pood to c her-

but lt is best to go on climbing thai up*

Maedonald-Robertser. Seed Growers'Association, which is superseded,
by tbe new organization, was aa
outgrowth of a competition for prizes
aggregating 5.0,000 th->t were
^iveti by Sir Win. Macdonald to
school boys and girls operating
seed plots and selecting the best
heads of wheat and oats during the
year 1900, 1901 and 1902. This
competition was conducted under
the supervision of Prof. Robertson,
hence the name of tlie original association. In the case of the crops
grown by the boys and girls the increase was 18 per cent in the number of grains in the 100 selected
heads of spring wheat, and 28 per
cent in the weight of grains in tbe
100 heads. Similar increases were
obtained with oats. Ninety-two per
cent of the reports said that tbe
quarter-acre plots carried crops decidedly more vigorous and heavy
than crops from the same varieties
ol grain shown on the same farm itt
the same season from unselected
seed.
An increase of even 20 per cent-,
in the total vield of Canadian farm
crops would mean the addition of
millions of dollars to the wealth of
the country. Another great possibility is found iu connection with
the improvement which may be
made in quality. Take wheat for
instance. From Sept. ist, 1903, to
March 31st, 1904, the government
inspection of wheat in Western
Canada showed 497,000 bushels of
No. 1 hard; 5,109,000 bushels of
No.    1     Northern,    and    7,639,-
000 bushels of No. 2 Not them. A ver)- large proportion of the
two latter grades would grade No. 1
hard, were it not for the admixture
of other grains and other varieties
of wheat. Here is an unlimited
field for the application of the prin-
c.pal of seed selection.
The executive council of the new
association is composed ofthe presi.
dent, Prof. Jas. W. Robertson, the
secretary, Mr. G. H.  Clark,  Chief

him a very severe diarrhoea which
it seemed almost impossible to
check, and along in June the case
became so bad he expected to die.
One day one of his neighbors brought him one small
bottle of Chamberlain's Colic,

given him while he was rolling
about on the ground in great agony,
and in a few minutes the dose was
repeated. The good effect of the
medicine was soon noticed and
within an hour the patient was
taking his first sound sleep for

worked a complete cure and he cannot help but feel grateful. The
