a third on the east of the ltoe. Four
field batteries were behind the infantry on its extreme flanks, concealed by the shrubbery. Two
batteries began the action by throwing shells to the Manchurian side
ofthe river for half an hour, while

the enemy's troops could be  seen
hurrying npwards over  the  mountain roads.    Two regiments of Japanese troops, directly opposite Wiju,
and another near a village on the
west, ran to the river,  stopping to
fire now and then as they advanced,
and cheering as they hurried forward.    Their formation was closer
than that kept  by  the  British  or
American troops, and  it looked as
though their losses must be great.

the sands and climbed up the steep,

nre unreliable. If you sympathise
with Russia, take the reports which

sympathies are with Japan take the
reports dated from Tokyo. Both
are oBcial. This thing of getting
fwesets of reports is a great con-
jreaieace. It bears a strong family

reports of two opposing political

off the harbor early this morning
aking a fierce attack upon the
combined Bnglisk and American
fleets, and after sinking fifteen of
the finest battleships of tbe allied
fleets steamed quietly out to ses in
good order. The total casualties of
the Japanese was a sprained ankle
to Capt. Miowao, caused by treading on a coil of rope.   Vice-Ad-
iral Sir Henry Careau, formerly
of Wadham's Cannery, escaped,
and reports tbe less of the allied
fleets as six thousand. After the
retirement of the Japanese fleet, tbe
English, after strenuous efforts,
succeeded in saving fifty cases of
champagne from the wreckage.
London, May 4, 1910.���It has
been impossible to obtain any information from the English nsval
aad military experts concerning the
foregoing despatch. A distinguished Admiral, who has heretofore
furnished many interesting explanations of the Japanese plats of
campaign, was found undot his bed,
but declined to be interviewed.
Ladner, June 10, 1910-���The remaining battleships, of the combined American and English fleets.
so it has been decided, are to suit
up the Fraser and anchor off Ladner. This will greatly facilitate
the furnishing of supplies from the
Marshall Smith stores and will also
be convenient to tbe bar of tlie
Delta Hotel.
White Horse, Jalv 15, 1910.���
Capt. R. G. W. Lloyd and Rear
Admiral Sir Lionel Cowptr hnve
conceived the happy idea of capturing three million salmon, and loading them with dynamite and a
time fuse, head the run towards the
Japanese fi**et. This is looked
upon as off-fisbal. Sir Roderick
Reid will assist in the scheme. Yes!
there can be no doubt that tbe
"Yellow Danger," regarded by
some with even flippancy, affords
ample food for most serious reflection!

From the number of times it has
bottled up Port Arthur and Vladi-
vostock, the Japanese fleet must be
a "corker."

The Clericus of the Diocese of
New Westmiaster met here on
April the 19th. Nine clergy were
present. The Clericus meets once
a month, for the reading oi the
Greek Testament and tbe discussion
of a paper read by one appoiated
to do so. Up to the last meeting,
it has always been held in either
Vancouver or Westminster, but on
the invitation of Canon Hilton the
last meeting was held here. Divine
service was held in the evening in
All Saints. Eight vested clergy
processioned with the white-robed
choir into the chancel. The service
was fully choral and the sermon
preached by Rev. F, Clinton was
listened   to   with   great   iattftnt.

One Tuesday, after spending ail th*

to ths woods jute near th* Nolrpre farm.
*Ke had been gathering nuts, and I onn renumber everything as olearly as though It

As soon as I reaohed boma I ran ap

Mere Cloohette lying full length on th*
Boor, her face downward, her arms stretched out holding her needle clinched between

her spectacles, whloh had rolled against
tbe wall as she (ell.

srent, and my mother and tb* servants
were soon with my poor old friend. Presently I heard them saying that she was
dead, and I shall never forget tbe terrible,
heartrending grief I felt, child though I
���was. I ran away quietly into tho big
drawing room, and, hiding In a .dark corner, I knelt down by a low armchair and,
burying my head ln a cushion, cried bitterly until I was tired out with my em*-,
tlon. I must hav* been there along timo.
for it began-to gat quite dark.
Presently tbe door opened, and ooms

my father and mother entered th* room

house, and it wo* ther* that he saw Bartons*, th* pretty eeanptr***, whom th*
villagers always called Cloohette after her
ncoldent. He made love to her, and ths
poor, girl was no doubt flattered to think
that shs should thus be sought out by the
handsome young schoolmaster wbo had

The death occurred at Boundary Bay on Thurday lrght of Wm.
Taskar, one of the oldest settlers in
this part of the country. ��� Th*
cause of death was paralysis. The
late Wm. Taskar waa- born in the
north of England in 1834,. \ and
when quite a young man he left the
Old Country for New Zealand.
From there he came to British Columbia, and in '73 he settled back'
of the present town of Ladner.
There he farmed for years till, not
very long ago, he moved out Boundary Bay way, where ht was living
at the time of his death. He was
Councillor for Ward 4 and was
much respected by all who knew
him. The deceased was unmarried.
The funeral took place this morning at 10 o'clock from bis late residence.
Mr. and Mrs. T. E. Ladner,
after a fortnight's visit at Santa

expect to return about the end of
King's Birthday.
As the meeting held on this day
last year was so successful and so
well attended in spite of the in
clement weather, we understand
that a committee consisting of
Messrs. R. Moffit. W. H. Smith,
W. Livingstone, P. Shirley and F.
J. Green has been appointed to
again try and carry out a programme af sports to be held at the
Delta Agricultural Society grounds
on Sattuday the 25th June next,
which is the day appointed to celebrate the King's Birthday.
The committee do not propose to
ask for any subscriptions for the
sports but intend to rely entirely
upon the gate receipts to pay all
the prizes and hope that everybody
Will patronize the meeting so that it
may become an annual fete day at
Ladner. As this day comes whilst
the farm work is not very pressing,
it gives all the community a chance
to enjoy a holiday previous to commencing handling the hay crop.
. The sports will include trotting
and running races for horses and
ponies, a bicycle race for men for a
challenge cup to be won twice by
tne same person, bicycle and foot
races for boys, also a lacrosse
match between local teams for a
challenge cup to be won twice by
tbe same team...
It is also proposed to put the
race track in gaod order for this
event aad for tbe exhibition later

it is thought advisable to ask the
public to assist with a small sub-

Ladner lost one of her most popular citizens when Thos. W. Foster
and family left here on Thursday,
the 5th inst., for Los Angeles, Cal.
Mr. Foster had been a resident of
this town for about six years and
his departure was regrettec. by a
large circle of friends. Mr. and
Mrs. Foster and family have our
best wishes for a happy and prosperous life in their new home.
A very appropriate serenade was
played by tha Ladner Cornet Band
in front of Mr. Foster's residence
on the Tuesday previous to his departure. Mr. Foster had been a
member of the Band since it first
started and was one of their best
men, his E flat Tuba will be hard
to replace. Anyoae listening to
the sad, sweet music ol the serenade could not doubt tbe high regard in which Mr. Foster was held
by his comrades and their regret at
his leaving them. The Bandsmen
were entertained by Mrs. Foster
after the serenade was over, and in
the course ot the evening presented
Mr. Foster with a gold locket as a'
keepsake and reminder of the many
pleasant days spent together.

By a Persistent Cough, but Permanently Cured by Chamberlain's Cough Remedy.
Mr. H. P. Burbage, a student at
law in Greenville, S. C, had been
troubled for four or five years, with
a continuous cough which he says,
"greatly alarmed me, causing me
to fear tbat I was in the first stage
of consumption." Mr. Burbage
having seen Chamberlain's Cough
Remedy advertised, concluded to
try it. Now read what he says of
it: "I soon felt a remarkable
change arid, after using two bottles
of the twenty-five cent site,, was
permanently cured."���Sold by F.J.
