Wm. IJeo.    I'rniidiiili. Son of    W. J. [ Is Now- Engaged in Mission Work on
Brandrith, of Hope Farm Killed
By H's'Tcam.
William Leo Brandrith, son of Mr.
W. J. Brandrith, of Hope Farm, met
v/ith a tragic death on Friday afternoon of last week, being trampled hy
hlB team sustaining injuries to which
he succumibed six hours afterwards.
The young man was working on Mr.
6. Morley's place with a. team and
waggon and the reins had been tied
to the hames and he had stepped on
to the waggon tongue to secure them,
when one of the animals, which was
a spirited young horse, becoming
frightened started plunging. The unfortunate young man was thrown to
the ground. The horses were by this
time thoroughly aroused and one of
them, a heavy horse, weighing 1600
pounds, crushed in his side crashing
into the lung. Other injuries were
also suffered but '.his was the direct
cause of death. Immediate assistance
was* at hand and Dr. King was hastily sumoned. Everything that was
possible was done under the circumstances, but the ease was a hopeless
one from .'.he stai-t and the patient,
who was suffering Intensely, was given an opiate. Death resulted from
a hemorrhage.
The deceased was one month lacking 2C years of age. He was well
kntwji and popular throughout the
diiirict and the parents ami family

entire    community in   their  great  be-
A  very  sad   feature    in connection
A vi*y sail feature in connection
with tho tragedy was the fact '.hat
tiie father of the boy had 'been East
o.'i a business trip and was expected
to return on Saturday evening. He
did not reach Vancouver until Monday and poceeded to Xew Westminster to transact some business before
jui'ireyi-g home. It was not until
he had gm:> to New Westminster that
he learned of the terrible affair when
with all haste he came to the Delta,
'ajllyin-g  in  time  fpr the funeral.
The Interment took place In the
Boundary Bay cemetery and was attended by representatives from all
over the Delta, the funeral cortege
briny a very large one. The Rev. C, H.
Bartlett conducted the services. The
following gentlemen ac'ed as pallbearers: Messrs. Herbert Kemp. Van-
comer; George Love, Robert Love,
Burmby; Robert Morley, William
Ea-le nnd Peter Gunn, of the Delta.
There were many beautiful floral
tributes. Among others being the

Launch Naiade Among the Loggers on North Coast.
The   Rev.   Mr.   iMciAulay,   formerly
Presbyterian minister here, was in the
city Wednesday and Thursday, renewing old  friendships.     Mr. McAulay is
now   on     the    Presbyterian     mission
boat Naiade, his field of activities lying among those engaged in the  logging industry from Vancouver to 200
j miles  northward.     His  work consists
���mainly  In  visiting  the  loggers at the
I different camps on the Coast, holding
'services  and  otherwise   looking  after
' their spiritual  and  morai  welfare.
Altogether he has some two thous-
| and men ln his area. Everywhere he
1 states the logger receives him in tile
most hearty manner and he has yet
j to meet with an unkind word. The
logger is rough on the exterior but
j when you come to know him he is a
splendid fellow, generous, hospitable
and with good impulses. Among the
| praiseworthy works done by the Naiade is that of distributing literature,
j secular as well as religious, among the
men. The lot of the logger is one
' particularly worthy of sympathy, says
Mr. McAulay. ln his extensive visits
'.o them he llnds little tending i'or his
well being, no home life and few, if
any, of those comforts enjoyed by
tha average man. Practically the
only accommodation the men have is
their own narrow bunks, and hard
ones at that. In a few instances,
however, modern springs are replacing the straw so in some degree their
com tort is being improved physically. Away from any entertainment of
any kind, except what they can get
from tobacco and cards, the logger is
perhaps more susceptible than anyone
else *.o the temptations of city life,
when he reaches civilization. While
they make/good "stakes" in too many
instances they depart with them In
two or. three weeks, bled by the agencies that lie in waait for them when
they strike "town."
The Naiade is really a gospel mission
boat, another boat being used in con-
nootlon with the. mission jtvork to
give llrst aid to '.he injured and take
sick and injured men at once to where
they can obtain competent attention.
While the Naiade is a gospel mission
boat it does not do for Mr. McAulay
to approach the loggers on Iirst Introduction in his ministerial capacity,
considerable tact being required, to
get into touch and in the confidence
with them.
I Coming up on the S. S. Sonoma
I Wednesday Mr. McAulay recalled the
fact to Mr. Brewster that he was the
first "paid" passenger to ever travel on
the boat. There was another passenger on board nt the time, and of
paper man from Vancouver, and of
course he was "broke" and had to beg
a passage.

English Church Parishioners Appealed   to   for   Liberal   Offering at
Harvest Festival.
Harvest festival services will be
held in the English Church to-morrow (Sunday). Special services will
be held both morning and evening.
At the services the choir will occupy
the new vestry for the first time, the
alterations Which have been under
way for the past two weeks having
been completed. A new organ loft,
among other work, has be.en constructed, the organ now occupying a
place back of the choir.
Messrs. A. T. Fawcett and A. Smith,
church wardens, have had Issued during the week notices to the effect that
owing to the great discomfort experienced in the church last winter, caused by the poor heating system, the
church committee are of the opinion that they should replace the
worn-out stove with a furnace, which
can be put under the church at a
cost of two hundred dollars. They
are therefor appealing to the parishioners as an annual Harvest Thank-
offering for this purpose feeling sure
that the congregation will enable
them to make this much-needed improvement.

The feature of the fair wis the

best  lie   had   seen   in   tbe  country.
Tiie cattle display was li,;iit.
There was a nice display of poultry
"that  was  greatly  admired.
Coming inside the neatly arranged
hall, the most striking feature was
the admirable boxes an I raws of
potatoes of many varieties, the big
ttncl healthy looking turnips and carrots, not t" mention beets, mangolds,
jaisuips and cabbage. In comparison
lo its size this exhibit is perhaps better than any seen this season.

quantity. Messrs. Collishaw, Walker,

at again b.-ing honored by having the
duties of opening the fair conferred

not think they would call mi ihe district folks in vain. The Surrey ex-1
