Provincial    Government    Seeking  All
Information  as  to Rest   Methods
of "."reserving Timber.
The Provincial Government has
sent the following letter to a large
number of persons interested in the
holding of the meetings of the Tim-
j ber and Forestry Commission of British'Columbia;
Victoria, Aug.  12th,  1909.
Sir,���1 have been Instructed to
send you the enclosed with reference
to the scope of the inquiry to be entered upon by the British Columbia
Timber and Forestry Commission recently appointed by the Provincial
Government, and the dates and places
of the various meetings, so far arranged,   for   the   taking   of  evidence.
1 am further instructed to say that
you are invited by the commissioners
to be present and give them the benefit of your views upon the various
matters which are the subject of investigation. Any memoranda, in
written or printed form, which you
may wish to submit, as well, will
have their most careful consideration.
As soon us the harvest is well over
a meeting of the Hoard of Directors
of the Delta Agricultural Society will
be held to arrange matters in connection with the forthcoming twenty-
first annual exhibition of the Society.
The annual show at Ladner has become to be an affair o!' considerable
importance to the Delta. Each year
has seen an Increasing nunnber of exhibits and un improved exhibition.
That the show will maintain the standard this year and, in fact, surpass
former cfties, there Is every reason
to believe.
The prize list, which has been In
the hands of the printers for the past
week, will soon be issued ready for
distribution. The list is much the
same as last year with a i'ew amendments, notably that in the case of
Durhams which are cut out altogether
from the list, there being practically
no Durham herds in the Delta, dairy
stock being generally gone in for.
There have been some alterations in
horses and, as in the past, this feature of the show will be given much
Whether there will be any horse
racing is not known until the board
meets, but the probabilities are that
there will not. Tho 'Provincial Gov- ;
eminent and municipal grants cannot be applied to horse racing, and
for that reason it is not believed that
there will  be any.
Tbe fact, too, that the race meet
on the new Lulu island track will
not be over will also have some in-
lluence with the board while considering tiie question of races at the local
The grounds will present an improved appearance this year although
not as much work has been done on
them this year as was at first intended. Fart of the oval in front of
tbe grand stand has been levelled and
seeded. By next year they will be
in  excellent   shape.

has been hung up in prizes for the

found dead in a barn at Fori Guichon
about two week's ago. brought in a
verdict last Saturday, after receiving an expert analysis of the stomach The verdict was to the effect
that the deceased had come to his
death from opium poisoning. Three
quarters of a grain ot morphine was
I'mmd in the stomach.
The opium Smith used is
what is known as Chinese opium���a
black opium with which is mixed cer-
taln quantities of water. It was no
doubt supplied by local Chinese, as
Smith had net left the locality, and
In view of this and other cases where
il is suspected drunks have been supplied by Chinese with opium, the jury
attached a rider asking the municipal
authorities to make an investigation.
It is said that quite a quantity of the
drug is being distributed in the neigh- j
norhoou, aud efforts will be made to
bring the guilty parties to time. L'n-
der the new amendment to the act
governing the sale of opium, convictions are much easier to get now than
they have been, so unless the guilty
part,!' or parties stop the circulation
of the drug interesting developments
will follow.

MONTREAL. Aug. 18.���Mr. Robert
Meighen. president of the Lake uf the
Woods Milling Company, says that
the farmer has the key to ihe present grain situation, and if the Ontario
farmer sees fit he can dictate the
price under present conditions, to
both the miller and the wheat dealer.
Future values, therefore, will depend
mi how the farmer will deliver his
grain, and he should only rush his
wheat to market in moderate manner. "I hope the farmer will use his
position to his own profit, both in
Manitoba ami Ontario," said Mr.
Meighen. Asked as to whether the
millers wished to buy wheat as
cheaply as possible, Mr. Meighen said:
"I do not look at It In that way. If,
for Instance, our company purchases
cheap wheat, our comp'titlve millers
will do the same and ] t their flour
on the market at an squally low
price. If a high price is ruling for
wheat, they expect to get a corresponding price for their flour."

Taylor,  20   years of  age,   of  I

and   received   injuries   which
his death this morning.
! will know why it is correct.
John   was   one   of   those   plodding.
I steady   fellows   who   are   often   unat-
j tractive to girls.   He was the only son j
of his widowed mother, who pinched |
' and scrimped and saved���in short, did j
everything she could to give her hoy ,
I au   education.     He   was   a   plodding j
! scholar and a good one.    As n boy be j
| could  not do  much  to  help  pay   his |
j way,  and  when   be  was  graduated
! from the high school  everybody snld
what a pity that he could not afford n ]
college education,   But there was one
person   who   did   not   say   any   such
thing, and that was ids little old mother,    She said John  was going to college, and he went.
There are always two sets uf young
! men In college���I hose who arc provld-
| ed with  the means to pay their way
and those who have to work for their
education.    John, of course, belonged
to the latter class.    He was referred
to by one, a wealthy classmate, ns "one
who  blacked   the  president's   boots."
He boned  for scholarships and  won
them,   lie rang the college bell and in
his senior year tutored.    He  worked
hard both at his studies and nt such
things as would help to pay  his tuition.
Rut back of all this was that little
white haired old woman, really too old
to work, but getting on ns best she
could without a servant, cooking,
sweeping, washing, patching, darning.
These live duties were nil there wns to
the old woman's life except when she
took what she had saved to the post-
oliiee anil sent a money order to her
beloved son.
So much for John nnd his mother.

sterling worth  in  him,  but she  war

possessed  the  moans   to   "entertain.",
Arthur  Lelghton   was   tbe  only   man
she knew who could fill this condition.
He wns twenty-one years old, nn or-;
phnn with n fortune, and spent most I
of his time abroad.    Ho took n fancy
to the girl nnd wanted to marry her.
In fact,  she  hnd  ber choice between
John Ghaudlct' nnd  Arthur Leightoh.
If she married John she would probably  have a   life of drudgery;  if she
married Arthur It would be a life of
ease.     Some   people   said   that  John
would make his mark,    But what can
one tell about a man's future from his
All this the girl considered. When
the period etime on in which John wns
to be graduated Arthur Leighton
begged her to be married and go
abroad for a .wedding trip. If teemed
absurd to decline. He was a pleasant,
gentlemanly fellow with delightful
manners. There was nothia��� ngaiust
blm, whereas John's future was n
blank. True, he was to be valedictorian of his class, hut there Is an old
saying: ''What becomes of the valedictorians? How many rich men wear
a Phi Beta Kappa badge?"
She concluded to feo and see Join:

she would give Arthur bis answer.
Meanwhile she was gathering a few
things such as she would require for

John expected that bis mother would
come to the commencement exercises,
but a few days before be wns to deliver bis oration she wrote that she
had been keeping from him the fact
that she had nothing to wear but a
cnli to dress and an old straw lint (lint
had been made over for the seventh
time. She was sure he would be
ashamed of her. How could he help it?
John sent tt peremptory order for hollo come, lie hnd reached an age
whi re he was master.
John's oration was a great success.

country nnd wns a masterly presentation of the dangers thai beset the republic. Old men v Iio were present
