We wish you all a very Mesry
Is your name on the roll as a
a member of the Rifle Association?
We need a few more ere we can go
any further ahead.
We do not think that the committee in charge of the plowing
match acted wisely in changing the
location of the match after advertising it for R. Pybus' farm. It
niade things awkward for a great
many people, the notice being so
very short.

$?r'on Saturday last with the
Reeve, H.J. Hutcherson, in the
chair, Coun. Gibbie and R. p.
Kittson. J.P., present.
: A Ministerial deputation wait.d
upon the Board seeking to pr^eve^nt
the transfer of the Delta Hotel license from H. N, Rich to R. D.
��� Tie application for renewal of
license to sell liquors at Port Guichon ��� was grafted to Mrs. E.
S. McBride without comment, but when the transfer of the
Delta Hotel licence came up there
was quite a lively interest taken by
the rev, gentlemen.
Considerable hearsay evidence
of a condemnatory nature against
the hotel, bnt nothing in the rature
of a directly substantiated charge,
was brought forward and the license was duly transferred,
Coun. Gibbie wished to be put
on record as opposed to the transfer.
On motion it was decided to recommend that the Council appoint
a license'inspector to report upon
the conduct ol the hotels to the licensing board.
The Board then adjourned till
next statutory meeting.

If such there be go mark him well.
For him no bank account shall swell,
No angels watch the golden stair,
To welcome home a millionaire.
To such a man the noisy din
Of traffic may not enter in,
For bargain seekers by the score.
Shall pass, not heed his dingy door.
Tread lightly friends let no rude
Disturb his solitude profound.
So let him live in calm repose,
Unsought except by men he owes.
And when he dies you plant him
That nought may break his dreamless sleep;
Where no rude clamour may dispel
The quiet that helove< so well:
And that the world nity know   its

Editor Delta Times :
Sir: Your oft repeated query "Do
we need a new Town Hall?" may

need a great many things* worse.
With new sills and a new foundation and thorough cleaning the
present hall would probably be

want an ample supply of good
water for man and beast. We
want that filthy abomination of
Chinese shacks along the river
front cleaned up and we want
better sanitary.conditious all round,
much worse than we waut a new
Town Hall.
In reading your report of the result of the nomination for the
Reeveship as well as your report of

prayer and eulogized the young
ladies upon their endeavors along

secretary, Miss Jordan, read her report, showing a very creditable advance.
After the report had been disposed of, the young ladies proceeded
to tell how they had each raised a
dollar for the good of the cause as
follows: Miss Davis, by taking in
washing; Miss L. Kirkland, pulling
mingels; Miss O. Kirkland, selling
Chickens; Miss Jordan, crocheting;

many meetings and, therelore, did
