Oxfords! are busy  on   the  site of the 1905
National Fair and nearly all   work
has developed into the stag* where
finishing touches are the only worries.    The old provincial exhibition
grdunds, on which so many successful fairs have been   held under the
auspices ot the  Royal Agricultural
I &   Industrial   sSociety   1 ave   been
j neatly   enlarged    and   with    the
j many alterations and improvements
wil', for beauty, surpass anything 01
the: kind in Canada.
The new buildings, which represent the latest ideas and best skil!
in architecture, together with the
expenditure of $35,000, are now in
tbe: 1 ands of the painters ani decorators whose schemes promi'e
most attractive results.
The space in the buildings is
ample toaccommoda'e a stupendous
array of exhibits representing al!
that is of interest in the product*
and manufactures of Canada and
tlie extreme limit of this space will
oe. occupied.
*fShe*British Columbia exhibits nt
horticulture, floriculture, agriculture, live stock, fish, game, timber
minerals, etc., will be an eye-opener
to all who are not in constant touch
with every centre and corner of the
province, and it will be a revelation
to visitors Irom other parts ot the
Dominion and the world. Nearly
eveiy fruit growing district in the
province ��� and there are about
thirty of them���will make its best
showing, which means an amazing
display of what is destined to be
one ol British Columbia's most important resources.
The spo: ts and spectacular and
musical events will be in keeping
with the general nature of the
great exhibition.

Sir;���It is seldom one finds an
error as to facts in the Columbian
but in your weekly issne of August 8, page 23, it is stated that the
elder Mrs. Byrom took the case
there reported into court, while as a
matter of fact the case before the
court was really an issue between the two brothers. One laid
the Information, the other defended:
the elder Mrs. Byrom was called as
a witness, but had nothing *what-
ever to do with bringing the case
into court. The whole thing was
ol little importance, and no doubt
after slight reflection might have;
been settled with a hearty handshaking all round.

According to Gilbert H. Grosvenor, who writes in the Century
Magazine for December, our ancestors weie wiser than they knew in
using copper utensils and receptacles for water, instead of tl-.e enamelled ware used by their descendants. Copper is death on poison-
pus microbes. Copper is the great
preventive of typhoid, cholera and
all manner of diseases. This is no
new discovery; but what is new is
the discovery, made by Dr. Moore,
Who ought next year to have the
Nobel prize, that the quantity of
popper required to kill bacteria is
infinitesimal, and is so rapidly dissipated that water disinfected by copper can be drunk safely. By his
method, in a tew liours we can thoroughly sterilize thc water, destroying every dangerous germ in it, and
the process is so cheap that every
small town can afford to adopt it.
The importance of this discovery
can hardly be over-estimated.    Instead  of   spending  hundreds   and
{hqusands  of pounds in cleansing
reservoirs ahd their  filtering beds,
all that is now necessary is  to mix
copper sulphate or blue vitriol with
the water in the proportion  of one 1
^o a million and the thing is done, j

Let Us Talk Si Over.
Have you, young man or young woman, ever given the
future any consideration? Are you content to drift along as
you are with a superficial public school education which does
not prepare you for earning your living.
There are openings for you_vg men iri the business world
as stenographers or cleiks. Women are eligible for the same
positions, what could you do in such a position? Are you a good
penman? Are you rapid and accurate at figures. Can you use
the typewriter so as to write 40 words per minute? Can youdo1
well the many things that are required to foedone in the business offices of large cities?
Unless you have taken a course in tlie above you are uu-
prspdred for office work except in a small r/Ulage. We can
prepare you for a good position���a position that will iri a few
months pay for your investment. Some df our lady graduates are earning $40 a mouth aud over.
Miss W. K. Smith receives 40 per month from the
Hastings Shingle Manufacturing Co., as stenographer. Miss
Menzie starts for the Yorkshire Guarantee aad Securities
Corporation at $45. Several are workiwg fur the C. P. R.
at $30 per month and upward.
If you come to us and work hard. If you want further
proof of the way we help to positions write us and we will
send you more names.
But don't "put off. E-very month you delay meaais one
month's salary lost. The sooner you graduate the sooner
you are iu a position.

" 'Alns!' she will reply, 'I nm not; mj

Yes, tho was beautiful; sho was yonn-i;
she was tall ami finely made; sho was
clever; sho was wilt; ; sho was well bred;
sba was well educated, and, In conversation, sh.! trailkly admitted that she tolerated man���not on account of his actiin:
qualities, but soleiy on account of his possibilities.
'Thank heaven I" cried the discoverer,
"I hnve found at lengi'u the object nf iny
lifelong search. Together, new woman,
We will tread the upward path."
She looked at bim; she laughed at hlm;
her sense of humor, a.s belonged to the
ideal, being always on the alert,
"Poor old boy!" sho said kindly..
"Tread the upward path with you? "Why,
you are 70. You aro unlit fer climbing.
You've got no possibilities left, You hove
lost your chances while jou warn running

So, you seo, it may be very good to cherish an ideal���even an ideal new woman,
but it is best to go on climbing that upward path alone. Perhaps you urny-come

'TTHURSDAY MORNING, AUGUST 17, we opened up one of the greatest sale? of
Boots and Shoes ever known in New Westminster. People will remember the
Big Sale we put on a year ago. It was a hummer, but this time we intend to

Pairs of Shoes tlmt we are unable to put oh our shelves.
We Must Make Room.
Already we are arranging for a large addition to our present BIG STORE and the builders will be busy in
a few days making the necessary changes, enabling us to handle almost double the large stock usually kept
by us.
for the Next 30 Days Not a Pair Will Remain on Our Shelves
If prices will do it.    This is no sale of old, shop-worn goods.   We don't keep them.    Every pair is BRAND   '
Come and See the Grand Display We Have Made
Every Pair Marked Down in Plain Figures.    We will keep our promise as to values and the assistance of our experienced salesmen
will be at your sarvice.
Come Early and Save Regrets.
