Pc'liicllui'.s From Vote of Ratepayers
of Rieliiniiiid Last Week May be
Applied to Delta.
. In view of the fact that In all probability the Delta will soon have an
up-to-date water system great interest was taken In the vote In Richmond last week when the ratepayers
in the municipality decided that Lulu
Island was to have the city water system and that $75,000 was to be expended on the improvement of the
roads. Following the vote the press
generally In the province commended
the municipality ami spoke In glowing terms of the results that would
follow. What is true of Richmond is
to a large extent true of the Delta
only more so. The resources of Richmond, rich as they are, cannot begin to be compared to those of the
Delta and If Richmond has much to
gain from a water works system the
Delta has much more. Therefore, in
reading the following the following
comment in the Vancouver Province
discussing the vote it will not be out
of place to apply tbe same deductions
to the Delta.
The Province  says:
By a practically unanimous vote
the ratepayers in Richmond municipality yesterday decided that Lulu Island was to have the city water system and that $75,000 was to be expended on the Improvement of" the
roads. What this will eventuully
mean to propertyhnlders there is for
the moment hard to realize, but by
the active trading in property and the
very substantial increase in prices
during the past two months the future  values  of  property  are  assured.
There is no doubt that on account
of the very inferior quality of the
���drinking water this section has been
overlooked to a great extent during
the past six months of active real estate trading. It is unquestionably
true that people will not Hie where
they can not have good drinking
water and this has always been the
���great drawback to living on Lulu Island. Lulu Island is uniquely situated
between the two arms of the Fraser
river and the value of Fraser water-
frontage is just beginning to be
realized by the Vancouver public. The
growth Of Vancouver is steadily tending toward the. North Arm of the
FVaser river and the fact that Lulu
Island is only six miles from the business centre of the city will in the near
future undoubtedly make this property of great value.
The productiveness of the soil Is
unquestionably great and has been
amply proved. Land that ten consecutive crops can be taken off of
without fertilization must be very rich.
The residents there are but just beginning to realize that fruit of a
splendid quality can be grown, while
practically two-thirds of the vegetables marketed in Vancouver are
grown on Lulu Island. All these
things will tend to make Lulu Island
the garden suburb of Vancouver. The
present aetiv'ty in real estate in New
���Westminster has greatly advanced the
price of waterfriintage at the upper
end of the island, and waterfriintage
all along both arms of the river Is
now being eagerly sought for by keen
real estate buyers. Now that all
doubts have been removed and that it
win have its own water system within a year many look forward to a
very great advance in prices in this
district. It is understood that several realty brokers wdth a view to the
by-law being passed secured options
on large blocks of acreage on the island.
Great Interest was taken by the
ratepayers In the passing of the bylaw and a very heavy.vote was polled.
The vote for tbe water system was
14S for and 12 against and fur the
expenditure nn the roads 132 for and
26 against.
I   FAIR m mm of l*��SES
L ,rt,��i     ATTHETAlf
riiensniil   Season   Opens  on   Fr'dny-
Itii'ds Seem to lie I'li'nlll'ul ou the
Rclln���Some Advice.
The pheasant season opened yesterday, Friday, the 15th. It is to i early
yet to sny what sized bags were taken
but from the preparations that have
been made the numbers uf sportsmen
afield will be larger than ever. The
birds seem to be plentiful on the Delta, thanks in no inconsiderable measure io the Delta Farmers' Game Protective Association.
There are one or two things that
one should remember when t iking ti
the fields on the opening day, says the
News-Advertiser. First, that lc is unlawful to shoot hen pheasants; second, that In all probability you are
walking over grounds that do not belong to you, and great care should be
taken co do no harm to property-
third, never shoot towards a house or
near or in the direction of horses or
cattle, t the end of the day you may
not have quite as many birds as the,
"one who has shot at everything that
gets up, or in any direction, irrespective of property and persoa, but you
will havo the satisfaction of knowing
that you have behaved like a true
gentleman and sportsman, and In all
probability can return at some future
.date and be welcomed by the property
owner; whereas the other Individual
is anything but welcome, and it is just
poss.ble has spoilt your sport. But
never mind, thc man with the rig'.ic
Idea Is bound t�� win out In the end.
Large numbers of Delta people I
have attended the Exhibition In New i
Westminster this week. They all
pronounce the big fair fully up to the I
high standard of other years and being better than ever in stock and
poultry. There were not as many exhibitors from Delta as lust year, on
j account of the lateness of the season,
but what there were secured high
I honors and fully maintained the agrl-
| Cultural honors of the district. In
horses the Delta was well represented
and not a few honors came this way.
The Pemberton farm had fourteen
horses In competition; Guichon Estate, I
six; Jos. Tambollne oi' Westham Island, several, and also Alex. Davie.
Most of the horses were Clydesdales
and it was generally remarked that
the Delta display in this class were the
besl In the show. High honors went
to the Guichon string, the one-year-old
filly from this stable capturing the
cup for the best bred Clydesdale In
British Columbia.
In   shires,   Alex.   Davies  was     very
successful, and In the heavy draught.
12   years,   took  second   place   only   to
the     famous     McDonald   &   Marpole
I team, accounted the finest team In all
| Canada.    The champion draught stal-
I Hon ribbon went to the Guichon Estate  and   the   champion   draught;   (3
! .animals) to Hume & Storey, with the
, Pemberton  stock farm  second.
I     Jos. Tamboline, of Westham Island,
had   a   splendid   arrary  of  shorthorn
i cattle on  exhibition,   making a  clean
sweep   in   this   class,   capturing firsts j
I In   all   classes.     Mr.   Richardson   and
Mr.   A.   Davie,   In   swine   and   sheep,
I took their usual high standing.
i     R.   Kitson   captured    many     prizes
, with   his  potatoes,   getting  Iirst     and
seconds in all classes entered. i
At the time of going lo press the
I prize lists were not completed but
, the following contain the names of
i some of tbe Delta prize winners:
!     NEW WESTMINISTER.     Oct.   12.���
j British    Columbia's    five-day    exhibition was opened today by the Premier
of   thi   Province,   Hon.   Richard   Mc-
| Bride,  and   this  annual  exposition of
,'a provincial and inter-provineial pro-
] mlnence  held under  the  auspices  of
[the Royal Agricultural and Industrial
| Society    ot    British     -Columbia,     in
I Queen's   Park,   has   again   been  pro-
| claimed as the progress-marking event
I in the agricultural history of this Pa-
| ciflc  province.    The entries  this year
i in the products of the farm, the stock
j ranch and the orchard have surpassed
| In number those of recent years and|
| '.he excellence of many features of the
I display   of   provincial   productiveness
1 Is  noteworthy.      The fisheries exhibit,
arranged by the Dominion government
��� Is an attraction,  both interesting and
instructive, and the enterprise shown
by  the  merchants  and   manufacurers
ito* make creditable displays In Industrial and Manufacturers Buildings bespeaks the spirit of the business men
of the Twin Cities.
But. the glory of the provincial fair
is to be found in the magnificent
display of fruit from Coast and Inland
orchards. This year is no exception
to -the rule and the displays are
���worthy of the hustling communities
' they represent.
With fine weather and the weather
man is striving with all his might to
give clear skies, if not brilliant sunshine, the Royal City Exhibition of
|lii09 should be an unqualified suc-
! cess.
The Formal Opening-.
Shortly  after   2   o'clock   this  after-
, noon   Hon.   Richard   McBride,   one  of
i New Westminster's old boys, from the
steps of the    Women's    Building    at
Queen's Park,   formally  declared   the
I provincial   exhibition   of     1909     open
land on behalf of the management re-
! quested everyone to enjoy themselves.
j Lowering skies and rather threatening
I weather prevented a large crowd from
j being   present.   but   those   who   were
entered heartily into tbe spirit of the
occasion in a manner which presnpres
unbounded success for   the fair    this
The Vernon  band,  properly termed
one of the finest in tbe province,  on-
1terod   the  grounds  early In tbe after-
I noon.
Premier MoBrlde was escorted to
| tbe Women's Building by Manager
Keary. Those present on the steps
with the Premier wen: T. J Trapp,
president Of the Society; Mayor W.
II. Keary, manager; ex-Mayor T.
uvens, Thos. Gifford, MP.P., L. A.
Lewis, n. D, Brymnoi*. C. A, Welsh.
\\". R, Gllley, J. B. Kennedy, directors
of the society: Aid. Jardlne and L.
Macrae, secretary to the premier.
T. J. Trapp, president of the R. A.
&��� 1. Society, on besalf of the association extended a hearty welcome to all
and expressed the hope thai everyone
would enjoy the exhibition.
Mi'. McBride Speaks.
The Premier expressed embarrassment at the kindly reference to himself by Mr. Trnpp. This show was
one of Canada's big shows, ranking
with the best of North America. The
fatook, fruit, dairy and agricultural
exhibits had the earmarks which experts said put them side by side with
the finest products of America. Despite the unusual weather conditions,
which had existed In British Columbia this year, the exhibits were the
! equal of those shown at the Dominion exhibition here. The poultry ex-
hlihlt, he was Informed, was the best
(ever seen at New Westminster, when
the province was so exceptionally well
adapted to poultry production it was
astonishing the large sums paid out
for the Importation of eggR and poultry. He hoped thc time would soon
'ome when they would not only produce poultry enough for their own
use, but also for exportation and to
hasten this time the provincial government was now sending poultry experts through tbe province to lecture
and give every stimulus possible to
poultry raising. He felt satisfied that
the high standing placed by Mr. Trap,,
on the stock and agricultural exhibits
would be true of all other departments not tn mention the ladies' work
for the needle work of the women of
R. C. was the equal of any other such
work In the world. He regreted that
the transportation facilities had been
so poor, but hoped !h > time would soon
come when this would be remedied.
He presented the best wishes of the
Lieut.-Governor, who would have undoubtedly been here had It not been
for the awful calamity nf Extension
and In closing paid high tribute to the
work of President Trapp nnd M.inng ir
Keary of the exhibition, In connection
with present and past suceeses of the
show. When the time came to write
the history oi the New Westminster
exhibition these names along with
that of Mr. Brymner would have an
honored  place.
Standard Bred Horses.
The first row of stables on the
ground is occupied principally by the
Standard Bred horse breeders, and
judging in this class which- will probably commence tomorrow promises
to be keen. There are more 'breeders In this class than have ever shown
In New Westminster. This would
lad one to believe that more of a
fancy is being taken to the American
track and harness horse than ever
The first exhibition in the row is
J.no. Murray, of Langley, an old exhibitor, who has been attending the
shows since the organization of the
Provincial Exhibition. He has with
him his old standby Langley Tom, a
King Patchen bred horse, and a
winner of more than one horse ring,
in which lhe keenest competition was
met. His stock is well known
throughout the Lower Fraser Valley
and some of the best are of his get.
J. H .and J. T .Wilkinson, the well
known Chilliwack breeders are again
to the fire with a splendid string of
prize winners. In ail they are showing 12, Including stallions, mares and
eolts. Thev are all bred from such
noted stock as Qamlbro, 2.11; Oro
Wilkes, 2.12V,; Colloquoy, 2.21); Diablo, 2.9 y ; Diahmont, Allamont, B.
C. Pride and  others.
B. C. Pride, a stallion in this exhibit, was the winner of the Driard
eup as a three year old at Victoria
and he has besides a number of blue
ribbons and championships won at
previous shows in this city.
Red Lee, Hazel Wilkes and Belle
Wilkes are la this string. A string
of ribbons, Indicating the winning of
11 firsts; 2 'championships, and 2 reserve championships adorn the box
stalls in which these finely bred
horses are kept.
Anderson and Walker, of Burqult-
lam, are on deck again with their
noted King Pa'.chcn stock. They
have nine head altogether In the exhibition. Thty have been connected
with the R. A. & I. Society since its
commencement almost, if not as part-
r.ers  as  separate  exhibitors..
A pretty 2-year-old filly. Glen's
Pippen is in this exhibit. She is a
colt of Glengarry Patchen, son of
King Patchen and will be heard from
in the years to come. At Victoria
this year she was the winner o* the
first and sweepstakes and she will
make keen competition with the best
at this fair. A two year old stallion.
Patchen bred, Is also la this show
and can claim ancestry from "Alice
-Mann." tbe mother of six colts that
bave records between 2.08 and 2.11.
At Victoria they showed three col's
and won six blue ribbons.
Tribute  to  Horse  Exhibit.
"You have one of the best exhibits
of horses that I have ever seen in this
part of the West," remarked "Professor W. VV. Rutherford, deputy minis-
ti r of agriculture for the province of
Saskatchewan, who acted as judge of
the light horses here last year, "and
I must say that the quality of the
horses generally is much impriu-c.il.
Both the light and heavy horses'show-
ed go nl form and condition and they
manlfes! an Improvement equal to
the general improvement In -- i l<
throughoul the country. The exhibit
compiin s favorably with the best
shows in the laud, and I am greatly
pleased with ii. Considerable credit
is due the superlntendenl of this department and the liw.-im.n generally
fu- the prompt was In which they bad
the horses hrought Into '.he ring an I
handled them durlna lhe judging. I
hope In visit your Fair again next
year when I will look for even greater
Improvement .along the same line."
The judging of horses was one of
the big- features of tie Fair yesterday and throughout the entire day
attracted large crowds of Interested
spectators. The animals shown in all
classes were the finest that two continents can produce and tiia: the residents of Xew Westminster and visitors generally appreciated this was attested by the outbursts of applause
that greeted some of the liner animals
that carried off prizes ir "' *, varliui.'
Professor Rutherford proved himself pos-essed of an excellent knowledge of horses and his awards were
generally conceded lo be beyond dispute. He had ���n difficult task In deciding In many of the classes, as the
animals presented little advantage
over each other. In such cases he
In a painstaking manner went nwr
the animals point by point ia order to
arrive at an accurate conclusion. He
commenced judging nn Tuesday afternoon and by dint of hard work and
the co-operation of the officials in
charge, and horsemen gennerally. succeeded in concluding his task last
night. The last few championship
classes and specials were Judged In
semi-darkness, but as all of these
animals had been  carefully inspee'ed
in their various classes earlier in the
day. Prof. Rutherford had a good
working knowledge of them and was
aide impartially to make the award.
He left for the East last night well
pleased  with  the  Fair.
Live Stock .lodging-.
.lodging of horses was continued
yesterday morning at 9.30 before the
grand stand. The roadsters were the
first in the horse clashes and brought
mil many admirers of this class of
Stock. Their action and style were
Shown to advantage on the gravel and
cinder track.
Tie- Iirst of the cattle breeds to be
judged yesterday were tb.e Red Polls.
of J. T. Maynard. of Cliilliwaek, anil
Cogswell, of Chehalis. Wash. Com-
petltion between these two breeders
was keen. Maynard succeeded in winning the majority of the blue ribbons
and championships ami lie won thi
sweepstakes for senior and junior
herds and also for the best three, the
get ot one sire.
.Mr. Maynard had as a competitor
Mr. i 'ogswell, who won many of the
premier piizes at Seattle this year. In
this iireed of stock Mr. Cogswell has
twenty on exhibition and Mr. Maynard
has twelve.
Ayrshires hold first place In numbers over any one breed of cattle here
nnd among them are found cattle that
have won blue ribbons and sweepstakes at nearly every Fair of importance in America.

Ont.; Robt. R. Ness, of Howick, Que.;
A. C. Wells & Son. of Chilliwack, and
Austin, of Sapperton, all veterans of
the show ring, bave over SO head of
their herds on exhibition.
Xh.is and Hunter at Seattle carried
away everything worth while Including tbe sweepstakes and championships. Robt. Ness, with a herd of 25.
won the herd prize.
| The Sheep  Exhibit.
Suffolk Downs, Cotswolds and Dorse's  were   also   judged.     In      Suffolk
Downs,   Joseph  Thompson,   of  Chilliwack,     swept    everything.     including
sweepstakes, championships and pens.
I     Mr. Richardson, of Ladner. was tbe
large exhibitor of tiie Cotswold breed.
; He won  everything valuable  with  his
good  (lock  of long wools.
I     J. T.  Maynard, of Chilliwack.  with
a flock of eleven Dorsets horned won
everything  and  without   much    difficulty  on   the   part   of   the   judges   to
decide.     Everything,   to   sweepstakes,
pens and championships were won by
I Pi'uisc for Poultry Shown,
I     Tiie judging of the poultry exhibits
in the poultry building was concluded
j this  morning  and   a  number  of  the
i finer  birds   in   all  classes   now   strut
more proudly with the    red    or blue
tickets attached to  their cogs.    The
I entries in  all classes were many and
i the competition was keen.   The judge
I of  the     poultry,   William     Coats,     of
! Vancouver,  had  no small task before
' him in  making the awards  and  was
kept  hard at  work    for    two    days,
while last year the    judging    of    the
poultry  was  finished   in  three   hours.
Speaking  to  a  Columbian  reporter
this morning Mr. Coats slid that the
exhibit of poultry here chis year was
ever so  much   better  than  in  former
years.    Twice  as   many   classes  were
exhibited   and   more   birds   were     in
each class.     Many    of the    birds    exhibited   here,   he  stated,   would  have
secured easy wins in  Seattle or other
exhibitions throughout    che    country
this year.
Mr. Coats was particularly Impressed with tiie excellence of the exhibits of white Wyandottcs, white
Leghorns  and   wait-  Ro sk.
Pekin ducks also appeared splendid
in their showings,    whil ���    the    1 gin
Brahamins exhibited be opined would
win in almost any show in iii ��� eoun-
tiy.    Tiie Polish fowl were also of a
high class nnd the whole display  was
aa  Immense  co lit  to  the exhibition.
.Mr.   Coats   his   acted   as   judge   of
poultry fu- over 2" years now and he
is thoroughly acquainted with fowl of
all kinds.    He was judge tljls s as in

Twelve o'clock to lay saw the
awards all placed lei- the best exhibit of stock ever held at the It. A. &
j I. exhibition. All around in this department of the show the directors
and management are to be congratulated upon the choice of nun as
judges, who have given satisfaction
In almost every class and who have
pleased alike the exhibitors and the
spectators. Professors Grislale, of
Ottawa, and Rutherford, of Regina.
and Messrs. Ball an ly he, of Stratford,
and Coats of Vancouver, who were
given the arduous task of placing the
awards are experts in their respective
lines, and are perhaps the best, at
any rate as good, judges of live stock
as could be procured in America.
All day yesterday the scene around
the cattle nnd horse barns was one
of unceasing activity. The work of
getting ready for the show ring kept
all  hands   busy   and   unless  you   had

One of the most interesting exhibits
of the stock show this year is the
Shetland pony class. T.iis class of
stock is attracting the boy3 and girl-
and wherever you see a Shetland
pony you are sure of' finding It surrounded by a number of admirers of
thc small  fry.
Sapperton appears to lead In the
number uf entries. Vancouver has a
few, but the most of them are owned
and caivd fur by local boys.
In this class Elmer Cameron has
two, Alan Morrow one, Lowery Nelson, Eben Lewis one and Robert
Thorburn one. They are all broken

The judging of them will most probably take place this afternoon and it
is anybody's guess as to who will win
the honors, the ponies being so evin-
ly matched in size and form.

THE    NEST    EGG     NO    FAKE.
Now! Everybody ready? Here's for
a good laugh at tbe cushion pressing
-poultry editor who calls the nest ogg
"grandmother's superstition."
Our hens just cackle for them.  Why?
Just because a lien sits plump down
on a nest egg and uses it to press out
the new egg.
She will lay almost every time where
there is an egg and, if nut furnished,
will often scratch a stone, corncob or
green apple into the nest.
Hens can carry an egg under the
wing, as you have discovered to your
sorrow when lifting a cluck hastily
from the nest. We have been surprised
at times to And most of the nest eggs
in one nest and ou watching have detected a hen making the transfer.
To cultivate the habit of laying in
one place and to stop nest stealing, to
preveut hens crowding into one nest
and also the dropping of eggs, to be
broken and eaten, and to start your
laying pullets to lay In the nests, furnish uest eggs, and lots of them. The
patent louse killing nest egg soon
evaporates and taints the eggs. The
natural egg should uot be Used, as it
gets stale. The white china egg ls
bout for the nest.
I-'ido. Tussy and Old Fan shod their
hair just like Biddy molts her feathers. Easy, cheap way lo get a winter
But Biddy must hustle her molt to
escape'colds and roup and to lay early
winter high priced eggs.
Strong hens don't get bare, their new
feathers quickly  replacing the old.
Moiling begins about July 1 rind
should end Sept. 1 at latest, and thin
hens molt Iirst, so thin them down by
culling the ration to one-half or a
third the usual quantity, according to
condition, whether fat or thin. For
this three weeks' anti-fat ration feed
mostly wheat and nuts nlid twice a
week on clear days feed a mash In
which put two tablespoonfuls of sulphur to every fifty fowls. Now feed
heavily of good grains, cut hone and
suntUiwer seed. This will rush their
new feathers aud bring ilicui lo laying
Keep them free from lice in molt,
feed no egg force and protect them
from exposure.
"Let's go see the chickens" is one of
the first expressions when folks enter
a county fair. Who isn't tempted to
poke those roosters, geese and quacks?
The peanut man is sharp enough to
keep near the poultry pavilion.
The small boy will share peanuts
every time with those crowers aud
No use talkin', everybody likes
Mother started that affection when
she brought the peeps in her apron
from the nest for the little toddlers to
laugh over.
The management of our fairs own
that the poultry feature Is most popular, and every year they are making
advancement iu housing, cooping, feeding, ^.tipcrinteuding and judging the
poultry exhibit.
This season many societies advance
the amount of premiums and throw
open commodious aud costly new
poultry pavilions.
Some hnve advauced first premium
on single birds to $5 and pen to J'jo
and offer magnificent sliver cups
That this Is appreciated by fanciers is
shewn by nn increase in exhibits of
high scoring birds, the entry at certain fairs last year being over 4.000
A few fair associations still have the
fossil idea that the honor and advertisement ot exhibiting Is very great, so
they expect fanciers to uncrate. coop
feed, water and recrale their birds.
One of these pays 75 cents for first.
40 cents for second, and demands an
entry fee of -.'5 cents, and lhe fancier
must attend to everything, even to
paying the drayage. Prize hogs are
not needed at such fairs���the management will do. Unfortunately fairs--

When    Silas    Strong,    old    bachelor
bought a farm in the outskirts ot (tin
village of  l-'owlerville and  set  up  hi*
bachelor's  hall  he   was at   peace   Mini
all mankind.   Two weeks laler he was
rushing  to aud   fro  with  a  pitchfork
in   his   bauds   seeking   the   life   nt   n'
strange hog that had invaded bis preia i
ises.     For  four years  the   Widow   la j
bor, down In lhe village, had owned ill
hog.     i'or  lliree years  lhe animal   bad
been  known as "tbe  widow's  bug.'   Ic ,
distinguish him from the halt hundred
other    bogs    permitted    to    niemulet
around.    The villagers told tales about
that  hog.    ne  was lull and  long and'
rangy.    He was ever hungry,    He wan I
a tighter,   lie was a destroyer ol gar j
dens and Ihe happiness ot lhe ownersI
I hereof.     lie   deserved   death   by   I he
hands of gun. ax or club,  but  he  had
been spared because be was owned by1
a widow.
The widow's hog had waited a reasonable length ut time and then paid
a visit lo Hie newcomer and rooted u,
halt nn acre of potatoes. Silas Sirnng
wns slow io anger, but he couldii 1
stand ihat. After vainly trying n '
catch lhe bog he set himself to,locate
the owner. When this laid been douche put on Ills Sunday suit and made a
call. He had the damages figured up
and knew just what he was going to
say. The Widow Tabor wasn't expecting him. but she was not a bit flusirat
ed Mr Strong had hardly begun his
story of infamy ou the part of the hog
when he was Interrupted with:
"Dear, dear  me.  but  I  am  so sorry .
I wish he wouldn't act this way.    Mr '
Strong. 1  have just been  ma king some
elderberry wine, and I wish you would
give me your opinion on it."
When he had done so she asked another opinion about blackberry jam.
and from that she lusisted that he sample a custard pie. and when he finally
started home he had forgiven the hog
and had a good opinion of the widow, i
These sentiments were not lasting.
(Jnlj a week had passed when the
same hog lore his way through a stout
fence nnd did some mere routing.
Silas Strong was stirred to the uttermost by the outrage. The widow and
'he bog shared his invectives alike. As
soon as he could get his breath aud
breakfast he set out for the village.
He may have been expected, for the
door was opened to him with a sweet
smile, and before he could utter a
word the widow said:
"I nm very glad to see you. One of
the legs of the cook stove has fallen
out. and I do wish you'd fix It for me."
The leg was no sooner In place than
the widow mentioned that she was I
afraid the "mother" In the vinegar j
barrel on the sunny side of the house:
was dead, and she took Silas out to
see. He gave his opinion, nnd then
she asked his advice about keeping
Leghorn chickens Instead of Brahmas,
and the upshot was that he went away |
without bringing the thunders of hear-
en upon her head. He got as far as to
say that the hog had paid him another
visit, but she changed the conversation
to the coming circus, and he found i
himself on his way home In a puzzled
frame uf mind. He wanted to forgive i
the widow without forgiving tlie hog,
but as they seemed to be one and In-j
separable how was it to be brought
about? Silas blithered over this matter for ten days and then got up one
morning io find anoiher battlefield before his eyes. The widow's hog had
made the third unannounced visit. lie
had rooted up the soil, and he had
chewed up things. He hnd spared
neither age nor sex. It was simply a
gigantic case of malicious trespass nnd
deserved death at once. As Silas could
not catch him and administer the
death stroke, be took n bite to eat unci
then started for Liverpool, n village
live miles away. As soon ns he got
there he laid lhe widow and the hog
and the trespass before the lawyer,
and when the latter had got the details he snTd:
"It's the plainest case I ever had.
The hog has got to die."
Silas Strong felt an elation as he
started for home. The law was behind him. anil the law wns to vindicate him lie had given llie widow
and her In-g a chance, but they Had
not taken advantage ot It. At the end
of a mile or so. however, this elation
begun to lose Its edge, and Jen minutes
Inter he was wishing that lie hadn't
been so prompt. Hum the hog. nut
Mrs. Tabor was n widow She had
given him pleasant greeting. She hnd
asked  ids advice,    She had  fed  him
CUStard pie She may have been left
that hog as a heritage, and she
couldn't be expected to either kill bill)
or follow him around nights. Silas
was feeling rather ashamed of his
movements when he came upon n te-
male sitting on the bank nf the highway and weeping. Standing in the
middle of the road was an old horse
and buggy belonging to a party In
Fowlerville. The harness had broken,
and the outfit had come to a standstill. The woman was recognized at
once as the Widow Tabor As Silas
descended from his rig she rose up
and tearfully welcomed him.
It was the duty of Silas Strong to
comfort ber. He did his duty, some
of It with an arm around her waist.
He hnd forgotten hogs and lawyers
and cases of trespnss when he saw a
man driving up whom he recognized
as a constable. He was on his way
to Kowlervllle to serve the summons.
"Might as well turn around," announced Silas.
"But why?"
"A feller can't sue his own wife, can
ne !*'
And the constable sighed and drove

At eighty jeurs of age William
Booth, commander in chief of the Salvation Army, is one of the most picturesque anil admirable figures- on the
world's stage today. He was born ia
Nottingham, England, April 10. 1828.
and the fact that the whole world is
interested in his becoming an octogenarian is evidence in itself of the great
Influence he has exerted on his day
and generation. Although be is* a doctor of canon law of the great Oxford
university, be ls not an ecclesiastic of
a conventional type. His Oxford degree came to him when, after years
of doubt anil Indifference and even
sometimes of persecution on the part
of the religious world, he hiitl convinced practically the entire public of
the value to humanity of the work of
the organization he beads,

the Salvation Army in 1S7S.
General Booth's authority and influence as commander iu chief of the Salvation Army are unique in the religious
field. Not even the head of the Roman
Catholic church exercises a sway so
autocratic, unlimited and undisputed.
The general issues mandates with an
authority quite equal to anything which
the czar of all the Russias might give
forth. Whatever he says In the army
goes without question or argument of
any kind. He is inexorable in these
ukases, as has been found out by members of his own family who expected
that lhe general would make some allowances for their relationship.

"Dirges Fanners to Unite and Sell Their
Own Produce���Says Milk Dealers
Do Not Treat Farmers -Fair.
Quite a number of Delta residents
visited the Surrey Exhibition last
week and while lhe weather conditions were n< t favorable, as told in
the lasi issue of the Times, the Fair
was a  great success.
One incident of the Fair which will
be of Interest to Delta fanners was
the address e.f John Oliver as touching on the milk  nuestion.
John Ol'ver, M.L.A., in the course o'
a speech made an attack on the combines and middlemen who made out
���they were the farmers' friends, and at
the same lim.- got the larger share of
the prolts. He urged them to unite
and mirk' I their own produce whenever possible, thereby getting better
prices than would otherwise be obtained. Mr. Oliver gave the milk dealers a severe celling down, saying that
they lid not give the farmers a fair
show, but objected lo paying them
even one-half of the retail price, although they do the greater part of the
work. As t" the statement by the
middlemi n that the farmers watered
the milk, h��� said that the city dealers put in several gallons to one pint
put in 'by the fanners.

to say of interest to Delta readers:
Ottawa,. October 12.���In the Supreme Court to-day the first case argued was the Corporation of Delta vs.
V. V. it E. Railway and Navigation
Company. The disput3 Involved p >s-
sestian of a highway on which the
railway was constructing its line, and
the municipality is asking for an
injunction to restrain it, and an order
that the road should be restored to its
former condition. While th- negation was in progress application wa*
made to the board of railway commissioners, anel the railway was
placed in possession of the disputed
land at the opening or the case. It
appeared on present appeal that there
could be no cjuestion except academically in reference to fie control of
municipalities in Brit sh Columbia
over highways, anel the hallway commissioners, hiving placed the railway
in possession, nothing but a question
of costs would be involved. Mr. Wallace Nesbltt, K.C., was beard on this
question. .Mr. A. H. McNeill, K.C..
wiio represented the railway company, was called on for a reply. Tbe
court, on the authority of Archibald

new washington statue fob btatuakt
I honor ln Statuary hall and which, by
the way, wns not Virginia's gift, although for many years thought to be.
Tbe Lee statue was designed and
modeled by the Virginia sculptor Edward V. Valentine of Richmond, the
same artist who made the recumbent
statue of Lee which rests over his
tomb In Lexington. It was cast ln
bronze at the foundry of the Gorhnni
Manufacturing company In Providence,
R. 1., and Is a splendid life size likeness of Lee as he was in life, having
been made by the sculptor to conform
exactly to measurements and photographs which were taken by him personally during jind after the war.
The very uniform, sword and boots
worn by General Lee during the wnr
were copied In their minutest details,
and the statue ls not only a notable
work of art, but undoubtedly the very
best portrait of Lee as be was that
ever has been made.
