Ixmer   Fraser   LacroHae   League   Ig
Putting on the Best Class of
Clean  Games.
The Lower Fraser Lacrosse League
Is certainly deserving of the support
of the whole community. The teams
are putting up good, clean, genuine,
hard lacrosse. While the games are
strenuous there Is absolutely no semblance of anything approaching vlcl-
ousness or had feeling. The referees
have easy jobs and if a player does
occasionally get a nasty crack as Is
Inevitable, the invariable rule Is that
the first man to stop and tend to
him Is the man who unwittingly caused the Injurv. It Is up to the people
nf Ladner, Wertham Island ahd East
Delta to support this branch of clean
���port, both with their nocket��i tn*
their presence. -It should be a matter of congratulation to every resident In the Delta that three such Pie
teams as the Reavers, the Shamrocks.
and the Maple Leafs can be put on
the ifteld. The president of the league,
ls Mr. Chas. H. Trim, and the sec-I
retary, Mr. W. H. Smith. The team
officials are: Beavers, President, J.
Oulchon; secretary-treasurer, H. A.

There wa sa large gathering <il
members of the Methodist church and
outside friend*? at a social gathering
that was given at the home of Mr.
R. Hutcherson, on the Slough Road,
on Monday last, to give a send-off to
the Rev. Mr. and Mrs. J. H. Wright.
The Rev. Mr. Wright ha? been pastor of the Methodist church ln ladner for the past three years, and has
earned the affection and respect not
only of his own congregation, but of
the whole community. Now under
the usual management of his church
he hns been transferred to other fields
of usefulness, having been appointed
to take over the charge of the Metho- j
dist church at Eburne. His numerous
friends all over the Delta are congratulating themselves that the distance of separation i's so short that
constant communication and personal
reunion* are  possible.
On Monday night the targe and
representative gathering at Mr. Hut-
chersons had determined to convey
to Mr. and Mrs. Wright the cordial
and affectionate feelings they held towards them, and to express their feeling of loss at their departure.

���Conuiiission  Will Investigate    Conditions In Briti-.li Columbia Prior
u> Pro|io*-ied Sales.
(From  The  British  Columbian.)
The Minister of Agriculture has
placed at the disposal of the Dominion Sheep Breeders' Association a
grant to be expended in accordance
with certain conditions which he has
outlined to the secretary of the association.
Colonel MaCrae, president of the
association, will come to British Columbia, and, in company with Dr. S.
F. Tolniie, representing the Dominion
live stock commissioner's branch in
this province, will make no investigation of the districts especially suited
to sheep rasing, with a view to selecting about five centres nt which auction sales may be held towards the
end of September or early in October.
It Is proposed that the sheep shall bo
sold subject to such oond-tolns as will
ensure their being distributed to tho
best advantage posslble and also thnt
they will be used for breeding purposes only.
A preliminary Investigation will be
earned on Immediately with a view to
arriving at an estimate o. the best
breeds and the number It Is advisable
to Introduce into this province. Every
care will be exercised to see that
nothing but first-class animals are
purchased for sale in this way.
The sheep will consist of grade
ewes and pure-'bred rams. Colonel Mc-
Ewen, representing the Dominion
Sheep Breeders, and Mr. C. M. MaCrae, representing the live stock commissioner's branch, will carry on similar work in the maritime provinces.
The department of agriculture is
taking an active interest in the sheep
breeding industry. This industry has
not increased during the past few
years, less sheep being owned ln Canada at the present time than for some
years past. At the same time large
sums are sent out of the country annually for sheep products.
Some three years ago a commission,
composed of Mr. W. Dryden o" Brook-
lln, Ont., and Mr. W. T. Ritch, of Ottawa, made a thorough investigation
of the sheep Industry throughout this
country and the United States, and
also in many parts ot Europe, with a
view of securing information which
would benefit the industry m Caanda.
Their report has recently been printed, and contains some very valuable
Information and also suggestions for
the betterment of the sheep business.
Early this spring Messrs. Ritch and
McCrae visited all the western provinces, including British Columbia, and
addressed a number of meetings In the
interests of the sheep industry. The
present action of the department In
arranging for the sales is still another step to attain the desirable object of placing the sheep Industry in
Canada on a sound commercial basis.
It is expected also that experiments
will be carried on ln the very near
future with a view to marketing Canadian woll on the British market,
which is recognized as the leading
wool market of the world. It Is felt
that by a little organization and can*,
in the preparation of the fleeces tt
can be placed on the British market
to great advantage over the slip-shod
methods at present adopted in malk-
eting wool  in  this western country.
If these experiments are successful
and anything like reasonable figures
can be secured for Canadian wool.
���itri a constant market assure,.! for
it. It will prove a great impetus to the
jjheep breeding industry in Canada.
irea of Winter Wheat Killed Amounts
to "S 15,(100 Acres���Yield Is 20
Bushels to the Acre.
OTTAWA, May 20.���A bulletin o*
the Census and Statistics Bureau, Issued on Saturday, makes the following
report on the crops and live stock
of Canada:
The area sown to winter wheat last
fall was reported as 1,097,900 acres,
of whieh 797,2010 acres were in Ontario, and 300,700 acres In Alberta.
From reports of correspondents It ls
estimated that about 31.50 per cent,
of this area has been winter killed,
the proportion being 2-.72 per cent,
in Ontario and __._0 per cent, ln Alberta. This represents a total deduction from the area sown of about
345,000 acres, 229,000 in Ontario and
116,000 acres in Alberta. .    ,<
The average condition o. winter
wheat on April 30 was 72.62 of a
standard (7'1 .'24 per cent, in Ontario
and 76.80 per cent, in Alberta.)
From these figures It is calculated
��� hat the yield per acre from winter
wheat In 1912' is likely to be about
twenty bushels per acre, or 13 per
cent Icbs than the average yield of
but three years, 1909-11, viz.; 23.*23
bushels per acre, provided that aver-
ag(. conditions prevail between now
and  harvest.
Spring   Seeding'.
In   the   Maritime   Provinces   spring
seeding  on   April   30   had   only   begun
here  and   there,   must   of  the  ground
being   still    under   snow.     Very   littlf
progress had been made by this same
''ate  ln Quebec,  the amount  of seed-
tig   was   completed,   but   this   applies
hlefly   to  the   western   and  southern
arts of the province,    ln the North-
fest  provinces  the  wet  condition  of
"ie      ground      coupled      with      cold
'eather and the small amount of fall
ploughing   completed    last   year   nas
caused seeding to be somewhat backward.
On the Prairies.
In Manitoba, 50.13 per cent.; in
Saskatchewan 71.54 per cent., and in
Alberta 61.2'6 per cent, of the seeding
of spring wheat was completed by
the end of April, and of the total
seeding done the percentage proportions were Manitoba 36j63, Saskatchewan  49.3'0, and Alberta  51.50.
Nearly 14 per cent, of the hay and
closer meadows have been winter
killed, and their average condition is
represented by 74.63 for all fcanada,
the figures for Quebec being 50; for
Ontario 80.46; for Manitoba 88.49;
for Saskatchewan 87.82; for Alberta
95.60, and for British Columbia,
lave Stock.        ��
The report on the condition of live
stock shows a high average for the
Dominion, being over 90 per cent, of
a standard. West of Ontario the figures exceed 90 for all descriptione of
live stock. In Ontario for milch cows
and other cattle, in Quebec, for horses
and milch cows, and In Prince Edward Island for milch cows and other
cattle the percentage figures of condition fall below 90. the range being
from   83  to  86.

Wliiu>   Morse   Rejoices   Over   Arrival
��f Quartz  Miners  (o Open  up
Copper  -Mines.
DAWSON, June 1���White Horse
is Jubilant over thc arrival there of
n force of 10 quartz miners from
Vancouver and the Spokane district,
for the purpose oi inaugurating active operations nn a number of the
best-known mineral properties on the
White Horse copper belt. Fourteen
of these claims have been bonded by
Mr. Qreenough of Spokane, Mr. Robert l.nwo nf White Horse and President lilckeson nf the White Pass
Railway  Company.
That the present und steadily increasing price  of copper  is  the great
Incentive to promised activity in mining circles there can be no doubt.
The price of copper has been steadily
advaiicln gfnr the past three months
and has now passed the 15 1-2 cent
mark, and it ls believed it will go
even higher. There is no doubt that
shipping will begin In the very near
future in order thut the existing good
prices for the product may bo obtained.
Thc advent of the miners from outside means that all the quartz miners
to be hired here will also be given
employment. It also means that for
every experienced miner employed in
opening the various properties, one
or more "muckers" will be needed,
and the result will be that over 100
men will be at work in this locality
within  the  next 30  days.
The   fact  that  the   name  of  President  Dickeson appears on  the  list  of
bond  holders  of  the    local  claims  Is
regarded  here    as    significant    of a
change  of  pollc  yof  the  White  Pass
Railway.     President  Dickeson  |s said
to  have realized   that  the  future  development of his road  depends more
largely  on   the  development  and  op-1
cratlon of the rich quartz deposits of'
Southern   Yukon   than  anything  else, [
and   he   will   do  all  in   his   power  to
bring  about  such  a  condition  of affairs.    This  is  called  Jubilee  year  ln
-Southern Yukon.

' Sir William Meredith, at the Farmers'
Bank enquiry yesterday  that he had
not  silicted  the  government    deposit
| for the Farmers' Bank in exchange for
i the loans made by the bank to    the
World   Mr. Greenwood, the managing
editor, had done any urging that had
been done.   Mr. MacLean said he had
scarcely   seen   either   the   Premier   or
the provincial trasurer since the gov-
ernnint had takn office.    Mr. MacLean
denied   that   there   was  any   truth   ln
the  insinuation,   on  an  election   hand
bill, that Dr. Beattie Nesbitt had given
him money.
Mr. II. H. Dewart, counsel for Travers, produced the agreement which
Travers mentioned as entitling him to
1" pr cent cofnmlslson on stock sale*
Thc liquidator had said that he founn
no evidence  of such an agreement.
Dr. Ferguson, one of the directors
was called to explain this agreement,
which was sigred by him and othel
directors, and his statement that he
did not think the agreement had eve
been put in force failed to satisfy Sii
William Mredilh.
Frederick Crompton, a brother-in-
law of Dr. Nesbitt, was examined concerning a large deposit he made In
the bank. Ha denied that It was mad
for the purpose of enabling Dr. Nesbitt to engage In speculation In thi
Kcelc-y Mines Limited. It wus ui
ordinary buslncsa transaction, he declared.

There seems to be an inborn desire
for active movement in most creatures,
and by such motions they get healthful
exercise as well as amusement. Advanced thinkers on hygiene tell us thut
the most recreative exercise for human
beings may be had in play. This active movement when mind nnd muscle
are both engaged, brings to both body
and mind greater benefit than can be
bad from any other form of recreation.

The Game of Buzt.
The old game of buzz has been almost forgotten, but it is well worth recalling because of its fun. Tbe more
the players the greater the fun. The
way to play lt is as follows: Tbe players sit in a circle and begin to count in
turn, but when the number 7 or any
number ln which the figure 7 or any
multiple of 7 is reached they, say
"Buzz," instead of whatever the number may be. For Instance, supposing
the players bave counted up to 12, the
next player will say "13." and tbe next
"Buzz," because 14 is a multiple of 7
(twice 7). The next player would then
say "15." and the next "16." nnd the
next would say "Buzz" because the
figure 7 occurs in the number 17. If
one of the players forgets to say
"Buzz" at the proper time be te out.
The game then starts over again with
the remaining players, and so It continues until there is only one person
remaining. If -.Teat care is taken the
numbers can be counted up to 70.
which, according to the rules before
mentioned, would be called buzz. The
numbers would then be carried on as
buzz 1. buzz 2, etc.. up to 711, but it is
seldom that this stage is reached.

At fifty years of age and after work
Ing bard for thirty of them Amos
Scbermerborn found himself worth less
than $100.
Mr. Scbermerborn bad never spent
much time thinking and planning ot
things outside his dally work. He was
a carpenter, and that settled that. He
could earn $2.;<�� per day when he bad
work, and tbut settled tbat He never
allowed himself to bave dreams ot
riches and ease. Perhaps It was tor
this reason und because be was no
talker nud didu't mix up with politics
that be cume to be looked upon as a
rather dull mini.
Ou bis fiftieth birthday the carpen
ter. being out ot work, sauntered ot)
into the woods and sat down to have
bis first real think. Hard work wns
already beginning to tell on bim, and
after about five years more what wns
to become uf blra. He was trigbtened
at tbe thought. Wbeu be could no
lunger earn wages it must be the poor
bouse for bim, as he bud no relatives
to help hlui out. For three long hours
Amos kept bis brains at work, and as
de walked buck to the village people
noticed a change In bim. As Deacon
liiker afterward remarked:
"Why, he looked au altogether dit
ferent man to me. und ne talked rigbt
up us brtxk as u lighting rod man. I
couldn't help but wonder if be hud
found a dollar in the road."
Next duy Amos Scbermerborn packed
his clothes lu a satchel and beaded for
a village thirty miles away. He enter
ed It ou tbe second duy. There bud
been two or three recent robberies,
aud the constables were on the alert.
A tulle from the village and directly
iu front of a farmer's burn Amos sat
down to rest. Tbe farmer saw bim
and cume out und asked questions and
finally ordered bim to move on and
belped bim' witb a kick. He did more
He followed tbe wayfarer into tbe vil
luge aud pointed him out us a suspicious person aud bad bim arrested.
Amos made no kick and wns arraign
ed. convicted uud sent to jail tor thirty
days with great celerity. Tbe cou-
stable slapped his mouth wben he
started to protest, tbe Judge said be
looked like un unhung villain, aud tbe
Jailer slammed bim into a cell witb so
much violence that he was thrown
down aud bad a finger broken.
Amos Scbermerborn served bis thirty
days In jail and was then warned to
leave town within half an hour. He
made straight for tbe office of a lawyer Instead, and before nigh'c there was
something to be talked of. Tbe farmer
who had kicked him was arrested for
assault and battery, the constable who
had run him ln was arrested for false
Imprisonment, the Judge got a summons for defamation of character, and
the Jailer wus arrested on tbe same
charge as tbe farmer.
Tbe Judge bad been a judge for
fifteen years, and be bad always
thought it wi.'nln bis province to call
a prisoner a son of a gun or any other
old thing he happened to' think of.
He now learned tbat his legal duties
ceased with pronouncing sentence. Be
bad defamed the character of a good
man. and he bud to pay for it. Amos
had $_i.">0 in his hind pocket when be
moved on. nnd he hadn't put In an
hour at bard work. He had another
village In mind, and be beaded for It.
It was a farmer again tbat gave bim
sway He wan plodding along the
dusty roud when accosted with:
"Here, you tramp, don't you want a
few days' work?"
"How much a day?"
"Fifty cents nnd board "
"1 can do better."
"Ob. you can? What alls you is that
yon don't want work at any price.
Your kind Just wnnt to tramp and beg
Ry John, there ought to be a jail big
enough to bold you all!"
"I am not a tramp," mildly replied
"Oh, you are a gentleman, mebbe!"
"Well. 1 can pay my way."
And the carpenter dug down and
brought out hit roll and held It up to
view and walked off
"Oosb!" exclaimed the farmer to
bimself. "But he's a highway robber
or I never saw onei Like enough ne
broke Into s bouse Inst night. Well. I'll
settle hls hash mighty sudden!"
And he went Into the bouse and tele-
pboned tbe constable at tbe village tbnt
there wan a suspicious character beaded that way. and Amos was collared as
soon as he showed up. He refused to
give bis name or to tell where he got
the money found on him Tbe charge
put against bim was suspected robbery, and be was sent to Jail and held
for ten days in bones bis victim might
be heard from At tbe end of that time
be was sentenced for ten days for be

Wben bis sentence was np lt was a
call on a lawyer again. Tbe defend

Many Delta people will be Interested in the good fortune of Mr.
J. M. Morris, one of the best known
cannery men on the Fraser, and the
north coast. Mr. Morris, who was
at one time manager of the Brunswick
cannery, ls at present manager o_
the Richmond cannery, but it la not
a run of sockeyes that has brought
him good fortune, although it happens
to be through a "salmon." He won
Salmon's Derby sweepstakes, netting
the neat little sum of $16,560 with
the lucky ticket number 90.53. Thts
sum is a trifle in excess of what n
cannery manager makes, even ln a
good year at the business. Mr. Morris ls very popular all over the B.C.
coast and is wished all kinds of luck
.n his good fortune.
