Game  Protective Association  Will be
mui incorporated Body���Deputy
Game Warden on Delta.
Thanks to the Delta Farmers' Game
Protective Association the prospects
for game ure steadily Improving on
the island. In two years, since organization, the Association has done
much for ihe protection of game, and
now when a man goes out with his
gun he Is reasonably certain of getting a fairly good bag. At the present time Mr. Gilbert u'Beckett Terrell la in the district taking on the
duties of deputy game warden for the
provincial   government.
The local protective association,
who have been seeking Incorporation
for some months, now are likely to
gain their end in u few weeks, word
being received to that effect a short
time ago. The Association originally
made application for incorporation
und.er the Benevolent Societies Act,
but found that it would be Impossible
to do so. They have now sought incorporation under the ordinary Act
and have received assurance that this
will be granted them. As an incorporated body the Association will be
a responsible one, capable of dealing
with, many matters in reference to
game  protection  themselves.

Will  be Held for the Next Few Sundays  in  McNcely's Hall.
To-morrow (.Sunday) the services
of the Presbyterian Church will again
be conducted In the town hall, the
church not being ready for occupancy
yet. ln raising the church considerable of the plaster was dislodged and
as this will have to be replaced it is
likely that it will be another month
before the congregation will be able
to hold  worship  in  their church.

The work of Installing the new
metallic system by the Farmers' Telephone Company was completed last

��� GOOD   ROADS."
Major    Shepherd.    Export    on     Road
.Mulling', Lectured on .Monday to
sinnM Audience.
Monday night Major Shepherd, of
Quoenstown, lint., an expert on making roads, addressed a meeting In Mc-
Neely's Hall on lb'' subject "Hood
Roads." Unfortunately, there was
only a small audience, for the lecture
was u good one showing thai the
Major thoroughly understood his subject.
Major Shepherd remarked thai
while bo bad met witli bul small
audiences in some purls of tin- Vancouver Island. In others '.he attendances had been large and had resulted in much profitable discussion. In
Vancouver, for example, the members
of the city council wei-e present and
the discussion which ensued was of
benefit to himself and he believed to
the city as weil. Good roads were no
longer a luxury, bul a necessity
and I* was necessary that those in
charge of public affairs should have,
a good working knowledge of the!
best methods of making roads. He|
thought the time was not far distant
when every attention would be. paid.
to  this  important  question.
One of the great factors to be con-'
sidered   in   this  province was  the  use I
of  labor saving  machinery  so   that j
good   roads   might   be  constructed  at'
the  least  possible cost.    >Ho  cited  In-1
stances on   Vancouver   Island    where
machinery   had   been   purchased   that
required  the labor of many  men nnd
made road making expensive.
COBALT. Ont.. Sept. 23.���B. E.
Litidei, Swedish miner, 23 years oi''.
was killed yesterday by a bucket In a
mine shaft falling on him.
"It will equal any county show In
Canada and in fact some of 'lie entries are good enough for any show In
the world." These were the words
if ilr. drey, judge of the horses at
the exhibition tiald on September 17
and IS by the Delta Agricultural Society in answer to the Times of
what he though: of the horses. And
Mr. Grey should know, for upwards
of 20 years he has been one of the
foremost horse judges in Canada, officiating for many years at the Toronto, Ottawa, Winnipeg nnd other big
It was  to  be  expected,     of    course,
that the Delta country would put up a
good   exhibit   of  horses   at   their  annual   ehibition,   for   this   part   of  the
province bus  long    been     noted    for
good  horses,  but this year they sur- [
passed themselves in this department
showing that the    breeding   of   good
horseflesh   has   passed   the stage  of  a
fad   with   them  and   is now  the  custom.    To what an extent the farmers
are   interested   In  good     horses     was
shown   by  the entry list of  over  200
animals. Naturally the heavy draught
and agricultural classes predominated
almost without exception, Clydesdales
being shown.     There are some so-called lovers ot good  horses who profess
disdain  for  the Clydesdales,  but they
do not live In the Delta. The progress
of this district has gone hand in hand
with the Clydesdale, for where would ,
your nervous,    thin    logged,    blooded,
horse  be alongside of the Clydesdale '
When it comes to breaking   some    of
the  new ground   in  the  Delta?     The
Clydesdale   has   done  much     for    the
Delta farmer where good, hard, lion- '
est agricultural  work is -required and
tiie   farmer has  done  much   for    the
Clydesdale in establishing his status In '
B.C., and at the fair Saturday with his
glossy sides and well set frame he lost
nothing by contrast with his more aris-
j tocratic   equine   kin,   of   which   not a
few  are   owned   on     the  Delta.      The
well  developed   Clydesdales  shown  at
Ladner   lost   their   traditional   clumsiness iu the grace of their well defined
lines.     The competition was keen and
lhe   prizes   will   divided.      It   was   no
easy task the judge had, in fact it was
almost  too   much   for  one afternoon's
It was not only in horses, however,
that the exhibition was a good one. It
was   well   balanced   throughout,   there
being more entries In the various divisions   than   for   some   years   past,   a
most  encouraging  feature for the directors,  who  havo -been trying to Induce their patrons, who have done so
much for the larger exhibitions of the
province, to make a better showing at
home.      Tho   attendance   locally was
good, but there were few from outside
places.      Owing to  the late season on
; '.he   Delta   there   was some  fear     that
the  number  of entries would   fall be-
l low  the  standard,     but at    the    last
moment there was a rush of exhibits'.
.Mr.   Logan,   the   well   known  dairy-
i men,   pronounced     tho    showing    o;
i Holstelns,   for   which   the   Delta     has
; gone in for almost exclusively, an ex-
! cellen*  one,  while  M.i- Conner,    who
! has judged  the poultry here for man>
'. years, stated that it was the best ex
hlbit   the society  has  ever     had,     although not quit." so large as he would
like  to see  It.    There wore small  exhibits   of  swine   and  sheep   but     they
were  both good  ones.
In   the  hall   there  was  much  of  interest.    Local exhibitions are an    excellent index to the character of the
community and  a significant   feature
: of the Delta show was themagnilleent
display of cut flowers, astors,    roses.
I phlox, sweet  peas in  profusion    and
endless    variety,    dahlias,    gladlolas,
| zinnias,   pansles  and   other  triumphs
of the skilled  gardener    all    bearing
I testimony lo the culture and    refine
menl   of the  members  of    the com-
munlty,    Agriculturalists   who    farm
amid    such    pleasant    environments
have developed  farming to its    mosl
favorable stage,   Tho showing of roots
and vegetables was an excellent    one,
larger than  former years, and  potent
witnesses  of what   the  dyked     lands
are capable of doing.    The display of
grain,  owing to  the   late season   wus
not  ii   largo one,  bin   in the matter of
quality  most creditable,    particularly
the oats, which Is the principal grain
grown on  the Delta and which  is annually such a prodigious success.,
The Delta is hot   looked   upon  as u
particularly  good   fruit  country,    especially 111 a  province where In  some
'parts  the  finest,  fruit  in  'ho world  is
grown, but  the fruit display was eer-'
^ainly surprising, belying the    Delta's,
rather Indifferent reputation as a fruit
I land.    Not  only  was  il   fairly    large, j
I but the quality was splendid,  plums,!
pears  and   apples  forming  the  major.
| portion.     Plums  and   pears  are  gen-1
lerally credited as the best fruit grown
in the district and yet any of the apples on exhibit would  compare favorably with  those shown at the Central
Park   exhibition.     In   fact,   competent |
judges said  there were no  better apples a(  the Central  Park fair. I
Nol all the honors belonged to the
men either. The femininity from the
Delta demonstrated that they had
made as much advancement In the
things that make life worth while as
the men, whi'e she had ���toothsome
butter and delicious bread on display
us well as jars and jars of preserves
clear as crystal, and "pies like mother
made," it was in the needle work
that her truly artistic tastes were displayed. The crochet lace and embroidery work were particularly good
and '.he home designs of dollies, centre pieces, cushion tops, pillow shams,
tea cosies, etc., cleanly showed what
a woman's diligence and patience
will accomplish. The more necessary
articles as socks, ties, quilts, shawls,
knitted jackets and other wearing apparel showed that the practical side
had not been forgotten either. In
the children's department there was
u. noticeable absence of quantity
which is the only criticism that can
be offered  of it.
The exhibition was a purely agricultural one, depending on    no    amusements for support.    For the past two
years the grounds of the society have
been under cultivation and no', before
next year will they be fit  for games
and sports so that none could be held
In connection with this year's celebration.    Next season, however,  the society hopes ,o have these Tor the benefit of those who care for this sort of
thing.     As a  purely agricultural  display the fair was a success, a splendid advertisement for  the  district and
a stimulant   *o  healthy endeavor    in
I the chosen profession of the residents
of the Delta.    Such shows as those at
'Ladner do much for those who partl-
| cipate In them and are a source of in-
I terest  and    profitable    entertainment
for those who attend them.
I     Generally speaking the Fair was a
decided improvement on last year's. If
any  criticism   is  to be made  It  must
I he  that there were  not  as  many  ex-
1 hiblts as can   reasonably  be expected
from  so  excellent  a farming  district
as the Delta.    For Instance the pota-j
toes   shown   were  excellent    but     the
small  exhibit  was not  liable  to  leave
a good ,impression on    visitors.    The
Early  Rose  were  good and  also Sutton's  Reliance.    Although  variable in .
size,  in shape they were good  on the
average,     The   Gold   Coin   was   good;
thin    skinned     with       just     enough
marking to show a  good  potato.    On
the average the potato grown on the
Delta is as good as any potato in the
The yellow and white turnips and
mangels were fairly good in size but
showed some evidences of tut worm
and turnip brig. The red mangels
\r/'re of prodigious size showing little
evidence of Insect attack. The sugar
beets were good In appearance, and
big In size. Both the turnip and mango] shaped sizes were good. The carrel -,  were magnificent.
.Some good black oats were shown
among other varieties. They were
���lean, well lill��d and above their average in size shotting' no evidence of
smut. Good samples of spring wheat
were shown, also of white oats. In
iats, new variety, it was a close decision between first and second prizes.
Tiie only exhibit of collection of grain
on straw was shown by A. Davie. Another year it would make a marked
Improvement in the building to see
several exhibits in Ibis class. Mr.
Davie's collection was a very good one
In vegetables the cauliflowers had
good color, firmness and the quality
of head was good. There was rather
a small showing of pumpkins ami
squash. The samples of cucumber for
pickling were particularly good. Beets
were small in she but good in color,
i ie. What was shown of Ihe table
corn was splendid, and likewise th
tomatoes. In onions the yellow onions
were the best, bui a very small quantity wis shewn. Th"i-e were some
nice sampl 's of jvhite onions and the
red onions were good in size, shape
and firmness. There nas a law !
showing of carrots and ihe shorthorn
carrol   was wonderfully good  . i
li was in the eui flowers thai the
exhibition excelled Itself. .Many dishes
of pansles of lhe ordinary varieties
were eii display. The astors Were a
feature,  both  Incurved and  recurved.
bin    there   were   several   eases   Of   bad
grouping.     Some   very   good   quilled
ones   were  exhibited.     The  only   fault
with   the  dahlias   was   thai   some   of
them  were badly sel out.    The roses
i"'|" good  for  the time of the  year.

also for advanced  for them. !

Mason, ot GuU'shle. Is worthy of mention. There was a good slz "d display
of honey, both In jnr and honeycomb.

judged ladles' and children's classes
lor the ftflh consecutive year. She
says fire class of work Improves every
year but cannot understand why there
should be such a small showing In '.he
children's department. They shoild
have more time than the elder folk
to enter Into the friendly competition.
It must be said tha' the specimens
of writing by the school children were
most creditable, reflecting favorably
on both scholars and teachers. The
leap drawings also came in for much
notice fro mthe crowds.
Mr. Conner, the veteran poul'rv-
iiiin of New Westminster, has judged
the poultry exhibit at the Ladner
show for many years. He says this
year's exhibit is in the class of birds
shown, ahead of anything yet exhibit-
i 1 here. There were several empty
pens, however, and it would have been
better had .there been more birds
The local attendance was good but
could be Improved upon. Very few
wi re present from outside the Delta.
'lhe dinner served in the hall by
Hie ladies of the English Church was
Wi 11 patronized. Besides saving the
ling walk or drive to town the meal
cms certainly worth the price.
For a purely agricultural show, not
lb-pending on amusements to draw the
crowd, there are few of the smaller
exhibitions that could attract the
crowd that, gathered on Saturday.
Next year the Society hope to have
the grounds in good shape so that
sports and other attractions may be

'of the evening was the report of the

l.ccssional Change of Food Beneficial
to All Farm Animals.
All kinds of farm live stock go off
their feed at times, the cause of which
may be some internal complaint, bul
very often it Is traceable to their being fed too long on one kind of food,
writes William II. Uudorwood iu
Country Gentleman. Bread is tbe
main food for the human race, and
there are foods that take a like position in tbe animal kingdom. Sound,
sweet hay. for instance, is a material
which most farm animals never tire
of. Oats, too, are an all the year round
food, particularly for horses, but In
these days, when cakes, meals and
condiments are so much employed In
feeding, the appetites of the animals
are very apt to clog.
Inferior fodder,  too. upsets animals,
and  no one will keep much live stock
or go on for a very long period wllh-
f  food  Is

place is not permanent
The best thing is to give less food
nnd change It partially or wholly.
Good, bright hay may always be Included. Crushed outs are one of tbe
finest correctives I have ever used.
These will be taken when nearly all
else is refused. If an oily meal goes
down badly, one with no oil should be
substituted. This is a decided change
and generally n most acceptable one,
nnd It cuts both ways, as If dry meals
are tired of the animals should he
given oily matter. They should not be

la day or so. but should have quite n

beneficial In the long run.

lie called upon her at the hour for afternoon tea to ask a favor.
Desiring, he said, to make some acknowledgment lo a lndy of high social
standing who hnd graciously accepted
his attentions, he asked Lady Richmond to name a gift that would be acceptable. It being obvious that Lady
Richmond herself was to be the recipient, she eagerly consented. She was
however, a trifle surprised nt Mr.
Jenks giving her a limit of ��,',.(100. At
thc end of a week's inspection the
lady gave n jeweler nn order to send
n bracelet set with a single diamond
to the American with the bill, which
amounted to the limit he had given
her. Then she waited to receive the
gift from Mr. Jenks. hoping It would
come in time for a function to take
place at Buckingham palace, where
she expected to meet the "chit from
America," as she called Miss Lee, and
to blind her with the sparkle of the
new gem.
But (he gift came not, nnd (he queen
of the belles was obliged to go to the
palace Without it. What was her
chagrin to see it on the wrist of Miss
Lee! Lady Richmond, after saluting
the king and queen, retired and never
again appeared as the reigning beauty.
The next day she rend In a society paper the announcement of ihe engagement of the two Americans, Mr. Eze-

Zeke Jenks married Miss' Lee in the
early springtime nnd Instead of seeking further social .preferment nt the

Now, You People
rthat attended the local fair, you saw one ot" the Bowl ami Tank
systems of the famous Red Cross Sanitary Closets. Many of you
thought it an ordinary water closet; there you were wrong, for water sewerage, septic tanks, or drainage, are not needed with 'his
closet. Further you can place it In any part of the house, and it is
at all times Odorless. Tl- . chemical does all the work and immediately, there is a fresh air intake; and a foul air vent, which goes
to the chimney or through the roof. The attention required is very
little, you place a can of the chemical in '.he tank each month,
which costs 25c, when the tank is three parts full it is emptied.
Having one of these in your house, saves trips in the wet and dark
to a foul smelling box. and further gives you an up-to-date sanitary

XSke to give, by way of an answer, ut- ,
Trance   to   several   conclusions   which

In   (he   llrst   place   we   bad   perfect

ihire   penpie   in    the   district    did    not

Oi'ri of  Hritish   Columbia   for  agrlcul-

E> be  heartily  congratulated on    the
���p/ermTd   quality   of   exhibits.    Better
nrhliftrts   of   their   kind   could   nol    be
blend in this province.  All admit that
.fieri-   nas  adearth   of  exhibits,   very I
i-" .   'on   few   for   the  actual   produc-
tffreness of this community.    A dlrec-
JOr said to ma, "Yes, the people won't
,-,Ve any  Interest   in  our show."      A
""*r-ff*ander   replied,   "Of   course   they
ttoa't;   I   used   to   exhibit   like   many
oUStere but  I  found  I  had   no  chance

rats probably, like you who read this
A-irer, to disbelieve tha' there existed
my     unfairness.    After     disbelieving
:tif  statements   I   went   to   see   some
judging.     Imagine my surprise to wlt-
ftetsa   [he   deplorable   spectacle   of?    a
Jirernr of the Society, having a large
jrimi'ier of exhibits, informing a judge
iming the performance of the judge's
,itit.r,  which were his .entries, and the
iw)ge  asking employees  of   other exhibitors what particular exhibits were
"heirs.     During the time he was judg-
T(g.  different   exhibitors, in  the   pres-
rnee of the judge, engaged  in a perianal  altercation   on   the   position   of
tie director  anil   the  attitude of  the
fudge.     That   tb." judge   could   not go
Klreel   from   the   prize   list   to  the en-
jries. which were all properly lagged.
rfthout a preliminary discussion as to
/he   owners   of  the  different     entries,
nas surprising  enough, 'but   that  the
...iidge himself should aotually ask an
vmployee of an  exhibitor which  were
90s exhibits,  appeared   to  me  so  preposterous   ami   so   Inimlcable   Io   the

Another   exhibitor,   who   says    thai

.ihe  annually      increasing  number   of
non-exhibitors,  discussed   the   gift   of
lie   i re   Thomas   McNeely,   now   de-
ireased, of a cop for "the b,esl  herd of

enghress of the breed and their monetary    value   because   they   were    thor-
-.oghbreil    was   quite   secondary   and
scarcely ever considered  as determining the value  of cows for dairy  purposes.     This   y.ar  the   .judge   awarded
die cup in favor of the herd of a dir-
mor after a. number of exhibitors and
to-.-landers had engaged, in his hearing,   in   a   bitter   argument,   ending  in
une ef lhe exhibitors becoming so dis- j
pasted   tha'   he   withdrew    bis   exhibit. I
&  condition   of  the  entry  of  these
rive dairy  cows  has been  for  the  past
twelve  .'i   fifteen  years as printed  in
the  prize  list:     "Dairy cows competing   for  Ibis   cup  mus    not   be   shown
'n  any  other class."    The  judge this
line ruled, contrary to the past years'
lecisians,   thai   the   pure   bred  stock

Makes Better
You will appreciate this fact
if you have tried it. Those who
have used it admit the fact, and
they are the ones competent to
judge. Royal Standard makes
more bread. That is because it
goes no further���because it is a
pure product of genuine quality
throughout. You will require
but little inducement to use
Royal Standard Flour if you
have once tried it. It is its own
best testimonial.
Then too with every sack you
buy, you secure a chance of
winning a beautiful 109 piece
china dinner set.
Ask your grocer for Royal
Standard Flour.
