The fi.llouicg report  was taken
I from the Daily Columbian:
flu Saturday night .Mr. J. I!. John-
I son, who lives on the south side of
the river in the municipality of Delia,
I unci near ihe Industrial cannery, had
fi rty-two yo.lng chickens stolen fro.n
his premises.    The birds were Incu-
' bator hatched and were only a mouth
old.    Mr, Johnson   notified   the  provincial   police   of   his   loss,   and   requested that they take acti n in the
case, but Chief Constable Spain, acting under instructions from the office
of   the   attorney-general,   refuse 1   to
move in thc  matter.
The loss of Mr. Johnson's chickens and his application to thc police
for their help, brings to a head the
trouble which has existed between
the local and provincial police office
and the municipality since the latter
refused to pay the former's expenses
in the work done previous to the
arrest of Uownio and Nelson, who
were tried at the recent assizes.
The   section   which   refers   to   the
case  is No. 232, chapter  144, of the
Municipal  Clauses  Act, and reads in
part as follows: "It is hereby declared  to  be  the  duty  of all  municipalities    .     .     .     .to bear the expenses
���of enforcing, not only the municipal
by-laws,   but   also   the   criminal   law
and ihe general laws of the province."I
Presuming that their  expenses  up '
to the arrest of the offenders would
be borne by the municipality of Delta, the loeai provincial police took up
the case 1;. n.e robbery of Mr. G. 17
, Corbould's house  at  Boundary  Bay.
j -They secured the arrest of the two
j men,   Downie and  Nelson, suspected i
I of the crime, and put in their bill of'
: expense   for   $4.?   to   the   provincial
;  government agent  in this city.    The
1 account was paid Iiy Him, and  he ill
I   turn   sou_|ht   payment   from   'Delta.
1 This was refused on the ground that
the provincial police are paid by the
1 local government, and th.ir expenses
' should also conic out of the provincial treasury.    The matter then came
to the notice of the attorney-general,
who   forwarded   to   Chief   Coftstable

Two colonies in each case had

was comparative)' free from rough

times a pretty goo 1 scrapie of the

The two remaining colonics ill
each set had no queen excluders. The
queen in every instance went up into
the extracting frames where eggs-
were laid and young brood raised.
This latter plan  is  practiced  by  too
the score at the end of the first
quarter stood 2-0 in their favor. In
the second quarter the Cloverdale
put up much better combination and
Bt half time the game stood 3-1.

without throwing out the young larvae at the same time. There are
also many who do uot use any surplus cases, especially those who use

This practice is to be strongly cort-

How to make honey and sugar thick
for fee.'ing.
Take good thick honey and beat
(not boil) it until it becomes very
thin, and then stir pulverized sugar
into it. After stirring in all the sugar
the honey will absorb, take the mixture out of the vessel, and thoroughly
knead it with the hands. The kneading  will   make   it  more   pliable   and

It isn't fair to give a girl away, possibly, but truth will out. Detroit has
one among its countless pretty girls
who. was in the country this fall. One
day she happened out towards the
cow lot, about milking time, and was
asking tlie   man several  questions.
"Why don't you milk that co.vv?"
she asked, pointing to one in an, adjoining lot.

Tuesday May 23rd being Empire
Day, a day set apart for the study
of the Empire and the developmenjt-
of the Imperial idea in the pupils
of the schools of the province the
ordinary school time-table was set
aside. Iu the afternoon the pupils
ot.the sever.'il rooms assembled to
listen to a programme more fitting
of the nature of the day.
Addresses were given by the Rev.
Canon Hilton and Rev. P. H.   McEwen, which were appreciated by
all. They impressed upou the mind*
1 ofthe pupils the fact that upon them'
some dav, would rest 3 part of th*
burden  in   the governing of this
Dominion of ours; the children of
to-day  are   men  and  women   tomorrow.   It is by means of strong
individuals,   mentally,   physically,
and morally, that a mighty nation
is built up.    Every Canadian owes
a duty to hjmself, to hjs fellows to
the Dominion and as we are sometimes to apt to torget, to our mother
country Britain.
After an impromptu programme
of recitations readings etc by the
pupils and the several patriotic
songs, the session closed with the
national anthem.

Why    Suffer From    Rheumatism?
Why   sufT.-r   from   rheumatism
when one application  of Chamber
Iain's  Pain  Balm  will  relieve the
paii ?    The quick relief which  thi
liniment   afords   makes   rest and
s'eep   possible,   and  that alone  is
worth many times its  cost.    Many
who   have   used   it   hoping   only
or a  short   relief   from   suffering
have   been   happily   surprised   to
find that after awhile the relief be-
cime permanent.    Mrs. V. H. Leg
gett of Yum Yum, Tennessee, U. S.
A., writes.   "I am a gieat sufferer
1 from   rheumatism,   all   over from
head   to  foot,   and  Chamberlain's
PaiiiBalm   is the ouly thing   that
will relieve the pain."   For sale by

Sho told ine these absurd stories in such
an impressive way thnt they fixed themselves on my memory liko veritable
ilrninnsnnd mysterious:poorafl. Tho clever
stories invented by celebrated nut horn
whieh my mother used to toll me in the
evenings did not seem to mo anything like
so thrilling and wonderful as thoso related by tho poor peasant womnn.
One Tuesday, ufter spending nil ths
morning listening to Mere Cloohotte'i
tales, 1 had been with one of tho servants
to tho woods just near tho Noirpl. liirin
We hnd boon gathering nuts, and I oan re- I
member everything asoli arly us though It!
hml all happened yesterday.
As soon ns I reached home I ran up I

ber now noticing her blue stockings and
hor spectacles, whloh bad rolled ugainst j
the wall as she fell.
1 rushed down stairs, shrieking ns I ,
went, nud my mother and tho servants ,
were soon with my poor old friend. 1'rcs- I
ently I heard them saying thnt she was
dead, nnd I shall never forget thc terrible,
heartrending grief 1 felt, child though 1
was. 1 ran nwny quietly iuto the big
drawing room, und, hiding in a dark corner, 1 knelt down by a low armchair nnd,
burying my head In u cushion, cried bitterly until I was tired out with my emotion. I must have beon thero a loug tlma,
for it bogan to get yuite dark,
Presently tho door opened, nnd soma
ono cnnic in with n lump, nnd just nftet j
! iny father nnd mother entered tho room j
1 with tho doctor. They did not sue me and
so continued their conversation. He was
explaining to my parents what he.d caused
the poor old woman's death. 1 did not
understand anything about It, but I listened to his words all tho same. .Some refreshments woro brought in, and the doctor took a glass of wine and a biscuit. B��
wont en talking all tho time, and what
he snid I have never forgotten and never
shall forget to my dying day. I believe I
can reim'mbe�� tho very words he used

Just before my arrival bi<rr a young man
bad come to this parish txf assistant srl.oul-
master. He was very haud--)llle and Innl
quite a military look about him, so lhr.5
all the girls wove noon lu ! v, , itb fclni.
Ho protended to be perfectly iiidifferoi t,
but the fact was ho stood in gisiat ewe "f
bis principal, i'ore (Irabu, who was ri,:fier
given to pelting out of bid thewro-Uj -iuo
and making things uncomfortable foi every one on the slightest pretext. The
young assistant lived nti lie fchoolmsster's
bousa, and it was there that he snw iior-
teuso, the pretty seamstress, whom the
villagers always called PHiel ettu after her
accident. He mnde low: lo her, and tht
poor girl was no der'' *.-���. ted tothink
that she should thus be sought cut. by thi)
handsome yiuim* sohoolinaster who had
turned thc heads of ,"11 lim village girls.
"lu n very short time sho was qui,0 ie-

with her lover on the (toys when she was
working nt Pere Grabu's house, she consented to meet him ono evening In the
loft over the schoolroom. When her day's
work wns over, she watched her opportunity, and instead of leaving the house she
just mounted tho staircase lending to ilia
loft and waited there, hiding behind soma
bundles of hay, for her lover. He soou
joined her, but they bud not been there
many minutes when thu door opened and
Pere himself entered the loft.
" 'Whist are you doing up here. Slgis-
bert?'asked the sehi. ilm.ister.  The young
man felt that there wus uu escape for him.
and he answered in a dazed way:
" 'I jusc came to lie dowu and have a
1 rest, Jl. tirnbu."
'The loft wns a Tery lnrge one, and it
I was absolutely dark, .^igishert pushed the
I youag girl along, wi.isperlng to her:

"Tho schoolmaster thought he heard
somo whispering.

" 'Yes, M  (Irabu, I am quite alone,

" 'NVi, you are uot. I heard you talking

" 'I swear I am alone. M. Grabn,' answered tlie young man.
" 'I'll find that out for myself,'said tb*

locked thc door from thu outside und de*
scor.i'.'d tho staironse in search nf a candle.
.'The young man, who wns a veritable

too excited to know what bo was saying
or doing.
" 'Hideyourself, I toll you,' be said tQ
the poor girl. 'I shall loso iny situation,

".Tost at that moment they heard th��
key being put into the lock again,
"Hot-tense run to the liuie windnv
which looked out on the street. Sho open
ed it quickly, und then, in a low. resolute
voice, site suid:
" 'When he goes away, you will eom*
round nnd pick mo up, won't youf
"Without waiting for nny reply she
sprang out of the window. Pere Grnbu
Wus very much surprised t�� find that Sig
isbert was alone, nnd be soon wont down
stairs again. A quarter of an hour lutci*
tlie young man came and told ma the
whole story. The poor girl wns lyinit bj.

"I sont for a woman to come and nurse

Every ono believed my story, and th* po-

Tho old doctor said no more. My
mother wus crying, and my father said
