THE COW.
Autumn is a more critical period
for a cow fresh in milk than winter.
Cold rains and raw winds are
fruitful causes of decreasing milk-.
The first makes inactive the muscular system, white t_ie latter so dis*
turbs the nerv-Ms system that it
fails 4o perform its work. Cows
should, therefore, not be exposed to
fall rains, left out during cold
nights, or confined in muddy or
wet yards at any time.

Thc sale of work and entertainment undertaken by like Ladies'
Guild, of AH Saints, "was not so
well attended *s was hoped, on account of the inclement weather
which prevailed all day and away
on into the evening.
The ladies nre deserving of great
praise for the manner in which
everything was arranged, and (or
the amount of the product of skilled labor displayed, which stood for
a good many hours of self-sacrifice.
The work tablis contained numerous and useful articles suitable for
Xmas presents, all the product of
the scissors and needle in the hands
���at skilful manipulators.
The stalls were operated by the
tallowing ladies: Candy. Misses M.
Green and L. Scott; work, Mesdames H. N. Rich, M. Smith, W
L. McBride, and Miss Mason; and
last, but not least by any means,
comes the fishpond, which was very
successfully operated by Mrs. Hayes.
The iefre_hments were attended to
by Mesdames H. Macklin, \\\ Livingstone, F. W, Harris, and Miss
Ethel Green with Mrs. Green as
general supervisor.
The programme Was an extensive
and varied one anl <comptised the
following numbers: Chorus, "High
Society," by   Mesdames  Lanning
and Macklin, Misses Green, Canon
Hilton and E. T, Calvert, this was
well tuned and timed; solo, "Barney,"  K. T.  Calvert, which was
well sang; duet;  "Life's Dream is
O'er,"   Mrs. Lanning and Canon
Hilton, this was exceedingly well
rendered; instrumental,  Miss Villa
Hall, tliis was the attraction of all,
Miss Hall having a wonderful command ef the keyboard; song, "The
!Sea is England's Glory," J.  W.
Rudd, this song was well rendered
and much appreciated; duet, Mrs.
Macklin and Miss E. Green, which
was    well     rendered;   recitation,
"Brier Rose," Mrs.  McBride*, this
was, without exception,  the most
charmiag number of all, though we
do not mean to belittle the other
numbers; song, "Two's Company,"
Mrs. Lanning, this  number was
very much appreciated and loudly
applauded;   chorus,   "'When   the
Pigs   Begin   to   Fly,"   Mesdames
Lanning    and    Macklin,    Misses
Green, Canon Hilton and E.  T.
Calvert, this was very bright and
racy, and took well; song, "Fiddle
and I," Canon Hilton, accompanied
by both  violin and piano;   song,
E. T. Calvert;  instrurnentals, Miss
Hall and Mrs. Green.
A laughable farce, entitled "The
Old  Maids'  Tea Party,"  was the
next on the programme, and was
well performed by the following:
Mrs.  W. L. McBride and  Misses
Green (2), and Hilton.    Miss M
Green sang the only song connect
fed with this and  acted the  part
well.   The dresses, disgnises, etc.
as well as the conduct of each was
first class.  '
Mesdmnes Green and Hilton acted as accompanists on the piano,
while Miss Ladner took the violin.
In the drawings the following
were tbe prize winners: Rose
cushion, Mrs. Clausen; tst doll,
Miss Hilton; and doll, Miss Welsh;
water cdlor, framed, B. Harris; red.
cushion, F. W. Harris.
Refreshments were being handed
around by the ladies in charge of
this department, while the drawings
were being conducted.
A very sucoesslul .wening's en-
tertainmeat was brought to a close
at about 12 o'clock.
The Oddfellows will hold the
dedication services in connection
with their new hall, on Wednesday
next.

RUNAWAY.
On Wednesday evening last, at
between 6 and 7 o'clock, A. Barber
had the misfortune of a runaway.
It appears he hud just finished unloading hay at D. A. McKee"-s<and
was about to gather up the lines,
when the horses started for home.
However their run was short add
sweet, the wagon parting, in twain
just beyond the Vicarage, while the
horses were quite satisfied with the
run they had had by the time they
reached tbe barn. Mr. Barber es>*
caped without injury. The rig
needs a few fixings.
John McKee, hearing the runaway team passing his house, grabbed his cap and ran, expecting to
meet an injured man lying in the
roadway. In the excitement of the
moment he developed quite a speed
���and it took him a couple of hours
to recover himself.
A SURPRISE   IN   STORE,
New York, Nov. 28.���Relative
to the Japanese general assault upon the defences at Pott Arthur, a
Tokyo despatch to the Times says
that according to unofficial advices
from the besieged city the Japanese
escaladed the parapets of the forts,
and transported mountain and field
guns, which they emplcjyed against
the enemy.
The attack was directed against
Sungsheshan, Ehr Lung Shan, and
North Fort of East Kekawanshan.
Commenting upon the Associated
Press despatch that specially
trained swordsmen were aft the front
of the Japanese troops who charged
into the Russian forts, the Times
says the iirictt-mation confirms various vague reports that have come
from Japan in recent months.
These reports told of a corps of
"fortstormers" that have been formed in the Japanese army. It had been
trained for years, and its special
province in this war is to capture
Port Arthur.
Of the nature of this body no cor-
reyondent has been permitted te
speak as it was evidently intended to
surprise the Russians.
Probably the troops belong to the
Samurai class, and are descendants
of the men whose skill in wielding
the sword has never been surpassed.
An Attack of Pneumonia Warded Off.
Remember the Christmas Tree
��nd Entertainment December 43rd,
"Some time ago my daughter
caught a severe cold. She complained
of paint in her chest and toad a bad
cough. I gave her Chatnbarlain's
Ccugh Remedy according .to directions and ia two days she was well
and able to go >to school. I have used
this remedy in my family for the past
seven yeara and have never known it
to fail," saya James Prendergast, merchant, Annato Bay, Jamaica, West
India Islands. The pains in the-chest
indicated an approaching attack of
pneumonia, which in this instance was
undoubtedly warded off by Chattiber-
lain's Cough Remedy. It counteracts
any tendency of a cold toward pmeu-
inonia.    "Fors��alc by K..J. Mackenzie
Obituary.
The death occurred on Monday
last at his residence, Agnes street,
of an old and highly respected resident of the Royal City, in the person
of Dr. Willian Kent, Fellow of tbe
Society of Science, London, England. Tbe deceased was over $5
years of age.
For many years the late Dr. Keat
has been a well known figure on
the streets of New Westminster, and
few indeed there were who have
not at sometime or other come in
contact with the kindly friend of all
humanity. For some time past be
hss been noticeably failing, but nothing could keep him from his work*
of mercy, and to the last bis interest
in bis fellow men was unremitting.
Especially was he fend of the children, and one of bis last requests
was that as many as possible of the
little ones would be present when
his body was lowered into its
last resting place. He constantly
visited the city schools, and there,
perhaps, more than in any ether
walk of life, will he be missed, with his gentle presence
and ever-helping words of kindly
advice. Always a consistent Christian, aad of late years a member of
the Baptist church, he was a firm
believer of the Golden Rale, fan
actions being governed, as he nany
times stated to his friends, by tbe
thought that "the Almighty was
forever looking Over his shoulder."
William' Keftt, H. D., F. S. Sc.,
was born in North Scarl, England,
on the 14th of Febttary, t-Sio. From
there bis father and mother moved
to Harviston, on Cross Cliff hill,
near the city of Lincoln, and there
he was brought up. He was edn-
cated in the Old Country, and
completed bis course in medicine in
New York. On this side of the
water he met and afterward married
Mary Elisabeth Haviland, who
survives him, by whom he had
three children, a son and two
daughters, of whom two are dead,
one daughter only living, ft .present in California, the wife of John
Benson, brother of H. D. Benson,
of Boundary Bay.
Dr. Kent was at one time a medical missionary tin the West Indies,
where he had charge of* leper lazaretto, and where he did a -greit
deal of useful work. Leaving the
south on account of his health, he
settled in Ohio, where he occupied
the position of Latin professor in
the Wilberforoe University. Still
in the pursuit of health and
strength, but never content to rest
and do nothing, be moved to Athens, Tennessee, where bis second
daughter died at the age of ten
years, There the deceased .gentleman built and conducted a large
private hospital from .1867 to 1873.
He was an ardent advocate of emancipation of slaves, and in spite
of his residence in the south ht
actively championed the cause of
the black race.
About the feat 1S74 be canm
to British Columbia and took up
land 00 Cresent Island.'the property
now opned by E. Chiddell, where
he reflHnned until some short while
after his son was drowned ia 'Crescent Slough. He then went to
Kew Westminster, and -there 'he
has lived ever since, engaged in any
work 'that met his hand for the
Master whom he loved and served.
In 1897 the doctor completed hie
labors on his "Christian 'Philosophy,'' a book that bats won him
world-wide fame, and for wbicb be
received the London Society ot
Science gold medal.
The funeral took place at Sapper-
ton on Wednesday, conducted Jm

WILD MITSTAKD.
In the Seed Laboratory at Ottawa, on." hundred fresh seeds of
wild mustard were planted in good
soil in a box, and under the most
favorable conditions ouly thirty-five
of them could be induced to grow.
The bOfX was then placed in the
ippen air for a week with the ther-
nometet;. below zero. When again
put in the germinatjor, seventeen
more seeds produced plants. The
soil was theji allowed to become
thoroughly dry and agajjo, put out
to freeze, aftjer which twelve more,
of the hundred seeds germinated.
This operation was repeated several,
tim^s, until finally ever)' seed de-,
monstrated that the mother plant
had uot lived in vain.
LUNATICS  ABROAD.
In our last issue we mentioned
$>e fact that some persons bad so
far forgotten themselves as to point
firearms at school children ia, the
outskirts pf the district, but sirce
then another case has been brought
tp our notice. This time it is nearer town and an elderly lady, who
happened to. ba seen using a pair
of fiei'd glasses. It is too bad a
person has to be denied the privilege of overlooking their; real estate with, a telescope because some
imbecile, is permitted to prowl
around the country shooting at
everything in sight. What's the
tpatter with appointing some special
cons��-,b_es through the district.
HOW TO, SAVE MONEY,
Much money is spent every ye*.r
if cleaning out the ditches���and
farmers watering their stock are to
blame���while pedestrians, are compelled to plod through, the mud.
Now, we suggest that tJje Council;
put dow.n a. sidewalk alongside the
ditches, and compel the farmers to
water their stock inside their own
fences.    Those farmers who have a
'. f
care about the welfare,, of the dis-
brict. will: see to it that their stock
do no damage in, this way.
It is very, inconsistent for a man
lo groiyl about bad ioadsand choked up ditches, if he will overload
his.wag.ons.and turn his cattle into
tjbe ditch to water them, instead qf
snaking connection with the ditch
from ini-side the fence.

The Best Remedy lor Croup.
(Frojn Atchison, Kan, Daily Globe.)
This is the season when the woman
who knows t,he best remedies for
croup is in demand in every neighborhood. One of the most terrible
things in the world is to be awakened;
iu the middle of the night by a whoopi,
from one of the children. The croup
remedies are almost as sm;c to be lost,
in case of cijoup, as a rcvplver is sure
to be lost in case of burglars. There
used to be an old-fashipncd remedy
for croup, known as hive syrup, but
seme modern mothers say. tjhat Chamberlain's Cough .remedy is better,
and does no,t cost so much. It causes
the patient to, "throw up the phlegm"
quicker, and, gives relief in a shorter
time. Give, this remedy as soon as
the croupy cough appears and it will
���prevesitj tha attack. It never fails
and is pleasant and safe to take.

The Trem
Last
s Success attending: Our Drawing
ear has determined Us to hold
Another this Xmas.
Looking Backward.
LAST CHRISTMAS Our Stock of Christmas Toys, China,
Glassware and Fancy Goods was the Admiration of Our Customers; the general verdict being" that it waa by far the Best
Assortment Ever Shown in Ladner, The Result of Our Innovation was most Gratifying to Us, Firstly, We practically Sold
Out Our Entire Stock of Christmas Goods; and, Secondly,
almost the Entire District took an Interest in Our Drawing, as
Evidenced by the fact that there were about 250 People Present
at the Drawing in Our Store last Christmas Eve.
Looking Forwards
