CONTRIBUTION TO
GOOD ROADS CAUSE
There was a communication from
the medical health officer, Dr. Wilson, enclosing a complaint regarding
stagnant water in the Sunbury district. This was referred1 to the
health committee for report.
Revenue Bylaw, 1913, was finally-
passed. This bylaw establishes a
general tax rate of seven mills, a
school tax of one mill, a water tax
of 2% mills, and a wild land taj
of  25   mills.
The Pool Room Bylaw was considered, and, after discussion, was
laid on the table for further consideration.
Messrs. Wm. Hornby, A. D. Paterson and A. Parmlter were granted
permission to clean out the road op-
notice from the farmers, v, ho in Rich,
mond have never gone in for sheep
farming.
These sheep brought down from
the interior for fattening on the
level fields of Delta will bring in a
substantial profit to the owners.
Probably, if tbe market, is as good
as it has been for the la_L two or
three years, the net profit per head
will reach $1.50, and it may go as
high as $2.00. Many Delta ranchers
who have imported in ihe early fall
large flocks from Oregon) have a few-
mouths later slaughtered the sheep
and secured profits as large a:-* these.
The care required to be taken of
the sheep at pasture is not great,
and as tbey consum. waste vegetation very readily, liking weeds fully
posite their several properties under ' as well as the most suc.ulent of cul
the supervision of the road foreman
The following accounts were pass-
edi for  payment:

A bour of the stock .buildings,

shown a gratifying increase, there
has been a falling off in field products and vegetables entered for competition. In all there were 2,000
entries: horses 180, poultry 300, cattle 200.

Continuous Complaints Against Chinese  in     Richmond    Rouses
Council to Action.
CAMBIE, Lulu Island, Sept. 16.���
"These Chinamen are being complained of at every meeting," said
Reeve Bridge with some annoyance,
when the doings of sundry Oriental
gardeners were recited before the
municipal council yesterday.
Tho complaint at the last council
meeting was that the Chines3 farmers were tampering with flood boxes
In order to get water to irrigate
their gardens. Yesterday it was
stated that they were dumping re-
fuse into a drainage ditch running
along the No. 17 road betw_;*. No.
4 and No. 5 roads, thereby creating a
nuisance which filled the entir.i district with disagreeable odors The
ratepayer making the complaint was
Mr. ,T. H. Hawke, who said he was
putting in shape for cultivation ten
acres in tho vicinity, but could nard-
ly hope to work or rent th.m untU
the nuisance was abated.
The Chief of Police, it w.-.s finally
decided, should Investigate the situation and take action ag.i..'. the
delinquents.
Chinese gardeners were also the
subject of a letter from the police
department to the council. The
chief stated that Wong Sing, a boss
Chinaman, and his help, Sing, Cum,
Wong, Ying and How, had been j

ordinance on Sea island. If the!

In cattle, which were all of the
dairy type, Guerneys were the
strongest entries, Ayrshires coming
next. In the former class Banford
Bros, and Chas. Hawthorne, both of
Cheam, did well. Dr. Knight exhibited but did not compete. In Jerseys, E. H. Barton was a large exhibitor and carried off nearly all the
prizes. He was defeated in the bull
class by Col. Miller of Elk Creek.
Joseph Thompson of Sardis was
strong on Ayrshires, while W. B.
Walker of t'hilliwack exhibiting for
his first year with a small herd, did
very well. A. C. Wells & Son, Sar-
diB, did not enter. There were no
Shorthorns and  very  few  Red  Polls.
Joseph Thompson also had a big
showing in sheep, especially in Suffolk Downs. C. T. Higginson & Son
won most of the Southdown awards.
Chas. Hawthorne annexed the Dur-
sets, and Hanford Bros, and E. H.
Barton divided honors in the Leicester.
Banford Bros, did well in swlnp
also, Duroc Jerseys, Berkshircs and

Great Strides.
Great strides have been made in
the poultry exhibits. Entries stand
this year at 300 as compared with
150 last year and 25 in 1911. There
was a good showing, all being by
Valley breeders. The prizes went as
follows: Single comb Leghorns, A.

New Westminster.
(From  The  British  Columbian.)
The road into the city from Wood- j
ward's Landing, which at this end |
forms the city boundary in Queens- I
boro district, was the subject of
some discussion at the meeting of i
the  city   council   yesterday   evening, j
Tbe question of the improvement |
of the   road   was   precipitated by a
letter from a ratepayer living on the
city side of it asking for its improvement.     Aid.  Dodd  pointed   out  that
the Richmo.'id council  had  been approached and asked to bear its share
of the cost of improvement, but had |
demurred, apparently on the ground j
of   believing   that   tho   entire   road
where it bordered the city limits lay
within the city.
Aid. Kellington urged the value
of the road to the city as an approach   from  Richmond.
It was finally decided to meet the
Richmond council at some dat"e to be
tixed after communication and come
to some arrangement regarding the
improvement   of   this   thoroughfare.

I do not believe the British people realize the extraordinary position which Sir Edward Grey has won
for himself abroad in the past six
months, says "Diplomatist" writing
in The London Daily Mail. He is at
this moment easily and indisputably
the outstanding figure of European
diplomacy, the one man in the Chancellories of Europe whose reputation
the multitudinous issues and events
of the last halfyear have definitely-
advanced.
No diplomatist in Europe has
shown himself so fertile in resource,
so pertinent in suggestion, and so
persuasively calm and moderate in
choice of language as Sir Edward
Grey. He has spoken but rarely
since the Allies took the field, but
on each occasion his words have
been direct, conciliatory, and
stamped with the spirit and authority of real statesmanship. The few
sentences in which he explained and
defended the naval demonstration
against Montenegro���so frank and
cautious, so skilful in their avoidance of controversial phrases, and
so confident in the power of Europe
tc enforce her w-ill without impatient
violence���had in particular, an instantaneous effect and were everywhere recognized as a model of
statesmanlike expression.
But Sir Edward Grey has done far
more for the peace of Europe than
merely keep his head and talk briefly, wisely and to the point. At the
very outset of the Balkan convulsion he ,took the lead in keeping the
Powers together, and he was first to
suggest the novel and flexible machinery of an ambassadorial conference
for keeping the various foreign offices in touch, and therefore, to some
extent, in line with one another.
This was timely and fruitful contribution to a general understanding, and it came with peculiar propriety and weight from the British
Foreign Secretary. For one thing,
Sir Edward Grey has'held his present post, without interruption for
nearly seven and a half years, and
will, apparently, continue to hold it
so long as the Liberals remain in
power, or until he becomes Prime
Minister. No continental politician
who is now in office has guided the
external affairs of his country for so
long, nor does one of them enjoy
such an assurance of tenure as Sir
Edward Grey. That is a great advantage in his favor. Not only are
the men he is called upon to deal
with newer to the game than he is,
but there Is every probability that
he will be playing it after they have
given it up.
Then, again, Sir Edward has been
greatly helped by the singularly disinterested position Great Britain
has occupied throughout the Balkan
crisis. Our almost absolute detachment from the ambitions and contentions and the special interests
that have engaged the thoughts of
St. Petersburg, Berlin, and Vienna
has been of enormous assistance to
Downing street in playing the honest
broker between the rival powers. It
is very likely, too, that the general
uncertainty as to the British course
of action if a European conflict were
to supervene has also lent to Sir
Edward's diplomacy an added persuasiveness. In any case, no government has been so well placed as
our own to induce a spirit of reasonableness and to indicate the diplomatic stepping stones that might
save Europe from sliding into the
morass.
Of all these advantages Sir Edward Grey has made the fullest possible use. He has worked early and
late; his moderation and good sense
and the implicit confidence he always inspires in his integrity as a
man of candor and straightforward
dealings have been invaluable assets
In the cause of peace, and I have
heard from more than one ambassador that his skill as president of tho
conferences which have so materially
helped to harmonize the differences
between the Great Powers, the modesty of his bearing, and the practical character of the expedients he
has put forward have revealed him to
his brother diplomats for the first
time as a really big man.
Upon the European, as upon the
British mind, the influence which Sir
Edward Grey exerts is, above all
things, the psychological Influence of
character. He has the same sort of
power among diplomatists that he
has in parliament and among his
countrymen���the power that comes
from absolute honesty of mind and
nature, combined with a balanced
judgment and an air of being detached from the p?tty exigencies of
the moment. For many fnousands of
quiet Englishmen Sir Edward's voice,
is the weightiest in British politics
today, and his action on any doubtful issue counts for more than the
decision of any other man that I
know of.
Strong and    Successful Man.
Then, too, one must remember
that the seven and a half years during which Sir Edward has been
charged with the conduct of British
foreign policy have been years of almost constant crisis and commotion. They have pretty thoroughly
tested him, and by universal judgment of friend and foe, he has stood
the test well. From his long duel
with the Wllhelmstrasse over Morocco he emerged decidedly the victor;
he is the flrst British statesman to
seek and conclude an accommodation with Russia; and he has
completely redeemed the old reputation of Liberal governments for a
vacillating sentimentalism in the
management of foreign afTairs.
Radicals have often girded at his
silence and secretivenees and his insistence upon the recognition of
facts, but abroad men simply see that
he is a strong minister and a successful one.
ls it merely a myth that Gladstone
!on_e described Sir Edward as com-
| tuning a greater capacity and a
I smaller inclination for politics than
any man of his time? 1 have never
'thought the description a very good
one. The capacity, indeed, is still
there. One has only to see him addressing the House of Commons, one
has only to study that firm, frank
face, with the brooding forehead, the
executive nose, and the sensitive,
cleancut mouth, to be sure that he
has in him the real instinct of statesmanship.
But his reputed distaste for public
life, whatever it may have been once,
Is today neither more nor less than
a fable. People seem to think, because he Is the least theatrical of
men, the very anti-thesis of a demagogue, a lover of Wordsworth and
a disciple of Walton, devoid of personal ambitions, incapable of the
baser sort of partisanship, and because his whole bearing suggests a
more spacious and leisurely, and impersonal age than our own, that
therefore his heart is not in politics,
that he could abandon Westminster
without one sigh or regret, and
bury himself in entire contentment
among the beloved hills and streams
of his Northumberland home.
They are wrong, just as they are
wrong when they call one of the
most ardent and thorough-going
Radicals of our time a Whig, just as
they misread the man altogether
when they fail to detect the warm
and human and humorous personality and almost boyish idealism behind his veil of austere authority.
The country has yet to take Sir Edward's full measure. It trusts him
implicity, but it has still to learn to
know him. Possibly only his accession to the premiership will reveal
him as he really is.

HEAT  RECORDS BROKEN.
PASADENA, Sept. 17.���All heat
records were broken here today when
the thermometer registered 109. The
hottest previous day was August 29,
1909,   when   106   was  recorded.
GROWING TOMATOES
IS VERY PROFITABLE
LANGLEY PRAIRIE, Sept. 17.���
Twenty-two tons of tomatoes from
three-quarters of an acre under
glass. This is this season's record
at the Timnis Market Gardens here.
And this production has proven highly profitable, for the tomatoes
brought in the market a minimum
price of J2.50 per crate or twenty
pounds.
Tomato seed is planted in January
and as soon as the young plants are
fit for handling they are potted off.
Early in April they are transplanted
permanently In the greenhouse. The
single-stem culture principle is followed, and the vino is trained up to
a height of over six feet, wire trellis-
ing being used.
In the gardens there is an area of
one and one-half acres under glass,
half of it being used for early vegetables. Lettuce, radishes, onions,
etc., are sown in forcing beds about
the first of January. The lettuce is
twice transplanted. Rhubarb, cucumbers and melons are also forced
under glass, and mushrooms are
grown in specially prepared hedsl
under dark cover.
One acre in the open is planted to
celery, cauliflower and other vegetables that find good market.
Mr. Timms ships all of his products to Vancouver, from which point
they are distributed to the various
markets of Western British Columbia.

cows. On the first signs of indisposition in a cow the food should be
nvestigated, and at this time if a
saline purgative is administered the
attack will often be aborted. A
drench consisting of one to one and
a half pounds of Glauber's or Epsom
salts in solution of water is the best
purgative  at this time.
Inflammation of udder in cows is
often infectious and can be carried
from the affected to hpalthy members of the herd on the hands of the
milkers. A good practice to follow
is, to segregate any animal showing
disease of the udder until it has recovered. TTie milker should wash
and disinfect his hands after-milking slich a cow.
Depraved appetite (pica) in cows,
in which they eat dirt, gravel, etc.,
is generally the forerunner ot a
more serious affection of the bones,
and is due to a deficiency of bone
forming elements in the food. Finely ground bone meal added to the
food assists in overcoming this affection. Such cows should also have
access to a piece of rock salt where
It can be licked at will.

Martin Powell, alias Chas. Butcher, charged with the burglary of
the Bank of Montreal, appeared in
the police court this morning before Magistrate Edmonds after the
lapse of exactly two years and two
days :;ince the burglary was committed. He was remanded until tomorrow morning.
It was on June 6, 1912, that
Powell was arrested in Detroit, when
he was found in possession of a large
"���im of money which was identified
as being composed of Bank of
Montreal bills stolen from, tlft
vaults of the local branch. Powell
arrived here la3t night in company
with Chief Bradshaw and a Pinkerton detective.
Standing one and a quarter inches
over six feet, well dressed in blue
serge and accessories, blonde, clean
shaven and well featured, claiming
to be only 33 year3 of age and looking no more, Powell looked exactly
in the same presentable and apparently prosperous class as Dean and
MacNamara, who were charged with
tbe same crime. He gave his occupation as that of a clerk and hTs
nationality  as   English-American.
All seats in the court room were
filled this morning when the case,
which headed the docket, was called.
A few women were present but they
were only there in connection with
three juvenile cases. Counting out
a number present directly interested
in other cases, there would havo
been many,vacant places in the
small hall of justice. There was no
rush.
Powell was not. even asked to
plead and will not be in all probability. It is his privilege to plead
guilty if he wishes, in which invent
only the magistrate can dispose of
the cage. Such a plea, however, is
not expected.
Furtnermore, there is a provision
In the criminal code whereby the at-
torney-grneral may insist on a jury
instead of a speedy trial in case of
burglary where the money stolen exceeds a certain amount. As the
framers of the code did not expect
$273,000 to be stolen at any one time
in Canada, the limit is well within
the Hank of Montreal sum. Hence
it is probable that Powell will be
restritted to jury trial and will not
be allowed to elect for that or speedy
trial before a judge alone as in ordinary cases. ,
Contrary to reports that have been
published, the prosecution hopes to
get Powell's case on at the present
assizes, hence the short adjournment made this morning until tomorrow morning, Powell consenting.
Tomorrow morning it is expected
that the Crown will endeavor to
make out the prima facie case which
is required before Magistrate Edmonds can commit for trial in a
higher  court.

Judge of Butter and Cheese at Kent
Fair, Says Quality Was
Excellent.
AGASSIZ, B.C., Sept. 15.���Mr.
Mark Silver, of Vancouver, who
judges the butter and cheese exhibits at the Kent fair held here Friday, says that these products of Kent
dairy farms were of exceptionally
fine quality. In fact, he declares
that there were so slight distinction
in the different eaMes that judging
was exceedingly difficult.
Mr. Silver Is thoroughly conversant with dairying conditions in this
section, for as manager of the P.
Burn's creamery at Vancouver, he
has taken from Kent dairymen the
bulk of their cream for four years.
He says that In this industry the district has Improved greatly In the last
two or three years, due chiefly to
the attention of the farmers to more
scientific methods. In this time the
yield has more than doubled, and
Mr. Silver predicts that in another
two years the present output will be
trebled. "What would help along
the development of profitable dairying in Kent more than anything
else." he savs, "would be the organization of what is commonly known
as a testing association. This would
quickly result in the culling out of
from the herd of the unprofitable
cows, a great saving to the dairyman."

OTTAWA, Sept. 16.���A bulletin
issued yesterday by the census and
statistical office of the Department
of Trade and Commerce reports the
conditions of the crops and livestock
at the end of August, and gives preliminary estimates of the yield of
spring wheat, rye, oats and barley as
compiled from the reports ot correspondents upon the appearance of
these crops.
The weather conditi, ns were favorable for ripeni:ig ar. I harvesting
the grain crops. In Ontario It was
nearly all harvested by the rndi of the
month, while in the Prairie provinces
harvesting operations were about
two thirds complet-d, and It waB expected that threshing would be general by September 10.
The average condition of the
spring wheat Is 88.43 per cent, of
the standard of a full 0 c 1, which is
represented by 100: oat" 87.85, barley 87.07, rye 80.49, peas 80.81,
beans 78.68, buckwheat 77.81, mixed
grains 89.04, flax 85.06 and corn
79.78.
On the whole these figures maintain the high standard set by last
month's report, and marks an advancement for spring wheat, oats and
flax. Comparedi with the figures of
the corresponding date last year,
wheat Is 88 to 84, oatf, and barley
88 to 88, rye 80 to S4, mixed grains
89 to 87, flax 85 to 88. potatoes 86
to 89 last month and till last year.
Turnips are 84 for both this month
and last as against 88 last year. Pasture has maintained its condition
fairly well since last month, the
figure being 81 against 82 last month
and 92 a year ago.
From the reports furnished by
correspondents, the, following preliminary estimates of the year are
based on the areas sown: Of spring
wheat the average, yield per acre is
provisionally placed at 21.41 biishel.
an acre, which upon an area of 8.-
990,500 acres, makes the total yield
of spring wheat to be 192,517,000
bushels.
This quantity, addedi to 18,481,800
bushels of fall wheat 'as published
last month, gives the total production
of the wheat as 210,998,800 bushels,
compared with the final estimate for
1912 of 199,236,000 bushels and for
1911 of 215,851,000 bushels.
The yield an acre in 1912 was
20.99 bushels for fall wheat and
20.37 bushels for spring wheat.
Oats, with an average yield of
40.98 bushels an acre of 9,646,400
acres, gives a total production of
395,341,000 bushels, as against an
average of 39.25 and a total of 361,-
735,000  bushels  in  1912.
Barley, with a yield an acre of
31.05 bushels, and a total of 44,440,-
000 bushels, compared with 31.10
and 44,014,000 in 1912.
The estimated yield of rye is 2,-
425,000 bushels for 127,200 acres,
being a yield an acre of 19.06 bushels, as against a total of 2,954,000
bushels in  1912.
For the three Northwest provinces
the total yield of spring wheat is estimated at 188,018,000 bushels, oats
244,125,000 bushels, barle- 28,156.-
000, rye 612,000 and fla*** 15,056,-
000 u compared with the 1912 figures as follows:
Spring wheat 183,322,000, oats
221,857,000 and barley of 26,761,-
000.
The general condition of the livestock is very satisfactory, being expressed in percentages of a standard
of 100, representing healthy and
thrifty state: 94.27 horses, 91.37
milch cows, 93.54 other cattle,
90.41 sheep and 94.83 for hogs.
BIG PROFITS IN
FATTENING SHEEP
Delta Rancher Has Three Thousand
in One Field and Will Add
Two  More.
FOUR BY-ELECTIONS.
CAMBIE, Lulu Island, Sept. 15 ���
Three thousand sheep grazing in the
large field of J. Grauer's, on Sea
Island, opposite the Lulu Island
bridge, was the pretty sight commented on by many autolsts and
others today, for sheep even in small
numbers are not frequently seen in
Richmond, and never before, so far
as is known, has so many been assembled together here.
The sheep arrived recently from
the mountains, and will shortly be
augmented by two thousand more.
Then, so it is understood, the flock
will be transferred to Mr. Grauer's
ranch in the Delta.
J. Grauer and his sons, Rudolph
and Gus, have been In the live stock
business for several years, and have
discovered that there ls considerable
profit in buying sheep at the end
of the summer, putting them out at
pasture, andi selling them a few
mouths later when fattened. It is
Stated that sometimes, on as many
as two thousand sheep, a profit of
$2 a head has been made, and that
a profit of $1, or even $1.50, is practically certain. The local market
readily absorbs the carcasses when
laughtering begins. The sheep are
(radically no expense to the rancher,
for they feed on weeds readily
_nd will grow fat on waste land.
The Hemphill ranch on the No. 3
-oad and one or two farms in the
Woodward's slough district, are the
nly concerns, besides Grauer's which
���aise sheep in Richmond, and their
locks are not large.

with him when he accompanied
Henry VIII. to France to attend the
_*a-T-ous cloth of sold meeting with
the French King. lt later cost
Wolsey his job.
Lord Haldane was born in Edin-
ituriih, ou July 80, 185(1, and before
he was two years old be began to
show signs of that mental superiority
\*Uieh is now the pride of England,
Before h8 was two years old his governess one day discovered him working over a pile of dust. When she
���aeii-d him what he was doing she
neotved the reply: "If Cod made man
out of lhe dust of the earth, why
shouldn't I?"
Distinguished Parentage.
-Such high aspirations were perhaps due largely to his splendid par-
i-__i_a.ge. His father was the late
Sial.it.. Haldane, of Edinburgh, a writer to The Signet, and a uescendent
of the famous old Scotch family, the
Kaidanes of GlenagleB, who have in-
<b_u_B_arried with nearly all the Scot-
.cLsh nobles.
"1Ji.s mother is a typical gentlewoman of the old school, and possesses
���ransual force of character. She was
a. tiurdon-Sanderson, and the second
tbHUghber of Richard Bunion, of
SHest-Jermond, Northumberland���a

Kflen, who, marrying the only child
nf Sir James Sanderson, assumed the
aBCDnd name.
..ord Haldane passed through the
K-JJnbitrgh Academy, and later the
n.__irersity, where he received his M,
JL with first-class honors in philosophy; in the meantime, while a
.-3~t.ud*.'nt at lhe university, he went
frequently to Gottingen, and acquired about all that famous German
aaal of learning had to offer in the
mssw of speculative thought. In 18 76,
wiueii twenty years of age, he won the
S.ray scholarship and thi Ferguson
���dhnlarship of the four Scottish uni-
���ccrsitles Tor philosophy, After v.in-
n-���>_v* these honors he took up the
afatly ni' the law and was called to
On English bat* in 1. TH. He at once
htirntlfled himself with the best wo-k
oi the chancery side of the law
���carts, and In 1890 he became a
Qaeen's counsel. Prom that time his
rise lias been as rapid as il has been
H    iant.
Meteoric Rise.
Almost at a bound he tool; front
!Sa__k at the English bar, and almost
Bros, the very first enjoyed a huge
ao-d most lucrative practice. Yet in
thr- -course of his busy career he has
found time to write a iiutuber of
bMMiks, which arc well-known and ap-
���BBClated among scholars for their
sraisiition and the pharm of their
literary style. His first book was a
WSSSea of essays collected into a vol-
_n_c_ called "Essays in Philosophical
Criticism." His 1*>.fost book,, written
in. 3;iu:;, was "The Pathway to
Hwality."
Ha was called  into thc cabinet by
Prime   Minister   Asquitli   to  act     as
SjKt-ri-iary of state for war, and added
SS-S-tt distinction to that office. He ls
crwdited with many of the best army
rt?^orms of recent years, and is said
! .   (_ere put the British war office on |
a. more systematic basis than it had'
etttmr been before. While still holding i
___.   portfolio   ot   war  Lord  Haldane:
'V.i;t  appointed  a     member    of    thei
.".l.-Si* ial committee of the privy coun-|
c'lL.   the   only   instance     on     record!
���Witt-re a minister of state has receiv-
<-il* such an appointment while hold-
in,:* "his cabinet office.
Diplomatic Career.
"Lord Haldane was elevated to the
jjuumge in 1911.
-. e his occupancy of thai office
ger will accompany the different at
tractions  so   that   the   difficulty   of
dealing    with    the    individual companies has  been  overcome.
The arrangements for staging the
ai tractions iu front of the grandstand are now proceeding and with
such an energetic committee as
Sheriff Armstrong, Alderman Kellington, \V. A. Gilley and Fire Chief
Watson, no assurance that this part
of the programme will be a success
is   necessary.
None of the attractions have been
Been in the West before, the committee realizing the importance of
securing feats that have not been
witnessed by the crowds who will attend the exhibition at the end of this
month.
Among the attractions obtained is
the almost human lighting machine
"Bob," the boxing kangaroo, wn
will be seen together with the Gordon Brothers, in an exhibition of
bag punching and boxing.
Walter Stanton, the original stage
chanticleer, assisted by Miss Victoria Orvllle and Company will
stage three novel and amusing barnyard acts. The Giant Rooster and
The Fighting Cock; The Dancing
Geese and Old Mother Goose; The
Dancing Sailors, The Scarecrow,
The Chicks, The Rabbits and The
Trained Bantam are features of this
attraction, which enlists the services
o.( six people.
The Rosa Valerio troupe of si*
people will give a dangerous display of unrivaled precision on the
double tight wire. "Excelling every
olher organized group in their astonishing versatility and amazing resource" is tlie way this act has been
described.
Fearlessly defying the laws of
gravity the Four Casting Cronells
will present a comedy gymnastic
novelty. Funny twisting, swinging,
somersaulting, tossing from hand to
hand and from swing to swing, the
act is a thrilling exhibition of intrepidity.
One of the most beautiful uovel-
tie.s ever conceived will be the exhibition given by the charming Cur-
zon Sisters, the Original Flying Butterflies, This is considered one of
the daintiest and most daring acts
end is a series of thrilling evolutions
executed with remarkable grace and
daring. The act wns seen "for several years at the New York Hippodrome.
Rose and Ellis, the wonderful
leaping acrobats will give a magnificent gymnastic exhibition interspersed with cyclonic comedy.
Their's is an act composed of a combination of skill and nonsense.
The Troupe Les Jardys, composed
of four people Will be seen in an
astonishing exhibition of equilibrium
and a demonstration of physical
fortitude. Hand and-head balancing
is a feature ot this r.ct.

wholesale prices during August gathered by the Department of Labor,
fhe index number for 270 articles

time there were somewhat lower
prices for cattle beef, butter, trout,
whitefish coffee, benzine, rubber
