After a few explanatory rremaTks
;froth the chair the secretary read
the minutes of the previous, meeting, whiciuwere adopted as^read.
Considerable diseussion here ensued as to whether there was any
difference between the original
agreement and the one then presented for signature. After this
matter l*ad been settled favorably,
it was decided to proceed with the
election'* of officers, but after sub-
.mitting five names, each of whom
declined to hold the: office of president, ttte^ladies let tt be understood
that they would assist in raising
the necessary funds, whereupon
���a different view was taken and a
suggestion was made to Mr. Ladner that he take over the property.
aad,rent it to the Institute.
After considering the question,
W. H. Ladner agreed to pay the
lumber bill, #200, and .release the
Institute of the irrterest-^9 per
cent, on $200 for 1 ..year and 10
months���and to lease the property
to them for any term of years at.
$6o'per year.
With this change the election of
officers was comparatively easy and
the following were elected:
President���H. J. Kirkland.
Vice-president���:F. Cutting.
Sec.-Treasurer���*W. H. Smith
(Te-elected).
Directors���Rev. A. N. Miller and
N..-A. McDiarmid
The office of honorary president
was, on motion, created, and W.
H. Ladner was elected to fill it.
The 1 president .was then called
upon to take the chair.
The aboard was, on motion au-
thorized'to draw up an agreement
of lease as per W. H. Ladner's
offer.
On motion, the board was authorized ito procure tbe necessary
literature as soon as funds are forthcoming.
The meeting then adjourned to
meet again on the next regular
meeting day���**the first Monday in
the month.

GnSaturday.last a jolly party of
twenty Vaneouventes arrived by
the s.s. Transfer and drove from
here to Boundary Bay, where they
encamped.. Returning, Monday,
they took the steamer here for
Steveston. thence to Vancouver by

delighted with Boundary Bay as
"an ideal camping spot!" H. K.

Seventeen illustration pouttryJat-
tening stations are being operated
this year by; the Dominion Department of Agriculture *under the supervision ot F. C. Elford, Actfljg
-Chief of the Poultry Division.
. A great deal of -the -Dperatdtfa
time is given to showing farmers
how the work.of fattening is done,
therefore the salary of the,��perati��r
and the cost of installing tiie plant
are considered as experimental a#d
educational expenditures. The sell-
mg price of- the dressed chickens
is, however, expected tQ exceed the
first cost of the chickens .and^ tke
cost of feeding, plucking, gw4��iajk-
eting.   The work,.of each stati-pn is
confined to fattening enough "chickens for illustration purposes, About
200 is the maximum .*_ umber j- kept
at one, time.   Thej^perator-asf not
allowed to be,a competing buyer,
with others who have begjm to.fatten chickens as a private eirterprise.
If the farmers are already getting; a
fair pricfe for their poultry,* the '.'-Stta-v
tion will confine its efforts to illustration   or ..experimental   wofk-vwith
even lets, than ,200 birds. ..Those
who are .carrying on,.the work far
themselves Will be -considered not
rivals but friends, and. will be offered assistance where possible.
Special attention is beiug.paid to
choosing the right sort of biftds fet
fattening, for 'instance, ,the blocky
type of Plymouth Rock or Wyandotte, recommended as suitable for
the purpose. The operators are required ,to spend .,as muph.nf. their
time ae may be required iq. assisting
those who are engaged in pr .entering the business, by giving instruction in buying the ;*proper type far
fattening, in killing, and plucking,
jpackirtg, .shipping, etc.
Only t>irds of the ,.prqper ���* type
will be bought this year and seven
cents per pound will ,be paid ,{pt
these at the -stations. An extra
good type might well be -worth
8 ceets while another type.pf the
same breed would be too dear.at.five
cents a pound.
Each operator is considered 1 responsible for. the-work aad success
of his own station. He is expected, as far as possible, -to findsja
suitable market for the birds fatte-n-
ed at his��tation. The*L)epartme*it
will, however, endeaver to provide
a market for any surplus *&tpt_k
above local requirements..Each station will be conducted.as much like
a private enterprise as possible, rthe
Department assisting the. operator
in marketing, eta,.as it .-.would sjs
private^ firm initiating a new husi-
ness.
Tbe-demand for chickens fattenfifd
at the Goverment stations is very
brisk this season, a��d from the
offers already recfived.it- is expected
that.,the ruling prices will, be .fixjn
11 t�� 1.3 cents per .pound. ,*Pwti��s

methods recommended by the Poultry Division, who may ..wish >as��5t-

���A.TURBAT, SEPTEMBER   IO,    1904.
Considerable adverse comment is
fceard regarding the new ditch on
the Trunk road, which is consider-
.ed to he a source of danger, to the
travelling public, on dark nights,
and the suggestion has been made
that some sort of protection should
be placed alongside.
Labor Day.
STREET LIGHTING.
The darkening evenings draws
,��ur attention to the fact that
street lamps are somewhat of a necessity, and we take this opportunity of drawing the attention of the
Council and tjhe public to the fact
that we expect to see, in a few
days, a gasoline lamp demonstration, by our advertisers, which will
be an, eye-opener. If you are contemplating the purchase of a lamp,
-Mre ask you to wait until the "Best"
Lamp has been exhibited here.
ONE YEAR OLD.
As will be noticed by reference
to the first page, we commence,
with this issue, our second year of
existence which, we hope will be a
���efy successful one, more so, even,
than the past. We, therefore, take
this opportunity of asking all,
���very resident of the district as
well as those outside the district,
to turn in and lend us that practical
���assistance which pays our bills-���in
Other words, come in and renew
your subscription.
SETTLED AT LAST.
The Mechanics' Institute and
Heading Room will soon be iti good
condition again, we are pleased to
be able to state. The ladies' guilds
in connection wi*th the churches
.are to be thgnked foi this, they
having come to its assistance and
promised to help raise the funds
necessary to defray the running
jexpenses providing the gentlemen
would do their part by straightening matters out and putting every
thing in ship-shape so that they
(the ladies) might see exactly Uow
(things stand.
After the generous way the ladies
centered into the matter, one would
(txpect nothing else from the gallant Squire, W. H-. Ladner, than
jv-as brought foith, viz., that he
���would relieve the Institute of the
Incumbrance re loan afld lease the
property fpr any terra of years at
$60 per year.
With matters thus far settled, it
wa.* a (romparatively easy matter to
Utra-re the necessary officers for the
porrent year.
Labor Day, 1904, in Victoria,
will long be remembered as probably
the best celebration of the event
held in this city. Eclat of very unusual kind was given to the celebration by tbe presence in the city
on the same day of I,ord and Lady
Minto. All the conditions for a
first-rate jubilation were well-nigh
perfect, the weather keeping beautifully fine, and the air being remarkably clear and free from
smoke.
Congratulations are certainly
due to the Labor Day committees,
who exerted themselves to make
the event so successful. Everything passed off smoothly, and it is
a pleasure to record that not a
single accident, even of the slightest, occurred to mar the happiness
of the festive occasion. If the
great crowds that went home on
the last cars Monday night, or
walked home, were tired out with
the day's sight-seeing and exertions it can be truthfully reported
that they were also happy and well
satisfied.-���Colonist.
The Proper Treatment for a Sprained Ankle.
Asa rule a man will feel well
satisfied if he can hobble around on
crutches two or three weeks after
spraining his ankle, and it is usually
two or three months before he has
fully recoveied. This is an unnecessary loss of time, but in many cases
in which Chamberlain's Pain Balm
has been promptly and freely applied, a complete cure has been
effected in less than one week's
time, and in some cases within
three clays.���For sale by F. J.
MacKenzie.
From this date the charge for
weighing grain on Marshall Smith's
Scale will be reduced to 5 cents.

"Bismarck's intimate friendship with
Motley, the historian, ls well known.
H�� was also particoiarly attached ta
Qeorge Bancroft, so that when it became a question of Bancroft being; ���"������
*9alled from his post of United State*
minister at Berlin Bismarck wrote specially Id his friend Motley and begged
him to Intercede with the president te
allow Bancroft to remain, and he did
remain.
"Bismarck told me that when General Grant came to Berlin he accompanied him to see.one of tbe reviews at
the Tempelhofer feld. Grant was not
well that day, and they 'bad to drive
out ln a closed cnrrlage. Grunt looked
���downcast'' and told Bernard: tbat lt
worried him to tblnk that he was to
meet tbe Prussian soldiers sitting cuddled up in a carriage like any ordinary
civilian. 'Never you mind that, General
Grant,' Bismarck'said. 'You may sit
here hidden from view, but our soldiers are well aware what sort��. fighting man ls ln this closed carriage.'"

some bearing on the question of the

A Parable Impeached.
The parable of the wise man who
built his bouse upon a rock and of the
other man who built on tho sr.nds was
uttered before the "house wltb modern
Improvements" had made its appearance or modem sanitary science had
been evolved. A rock foundation is unimpeachable for stability, but lt may
���be very bad wben it comes to a matter
���f drainage, whether it be for the disposal of sewage or of surface or ground
water. A cellar excavated in the rock
Is usually a wet cellar, because the water leeches through the .crevices and
seams ln the rock, and lt ls both difficult and expensive to trench and drain
properly about the walls of a building
In a medium so bard to excavate. To
be sure, if tbe rock drops away quickly on a sharp grade this difficulty may
be altogether a minor one. A good
gravel soil Is one of the best to build
upon ln respect both to drainage and
to the stability of tbe house, and compact sand, if not subject to tbe action
of running water, is a mcst excellent
foundation and a thoroughly good medium.

EGGS CAN'T CONCEAL AGE.
A new and simple method of
testing eggs is based upon the fact
that the air chamber in the flat end
of the egg increases with age. If
the egg is placed in a saturated sol
ution of common salt it will show
an increasing inclination to float
with the long axis vertical. A
scale is attached to the vessel containing the salt solution so that the
inclination oi the floating egg to
ward the horizontal can be measured. Iu this way the age of the
egg can be determined to almost a
day. A fresh egg lies in a horizontal position at the bottom of the
vessel; an egg three to five days
old shows an elevation of the flat
end, so that its long axis forms an
angle of 20 degrees. With an egg
eight days old the angle increases
to 45 degrees; with an egg 14 days
to 60 degrees, and with one 3 weeks
old to 75 degrees, while an egg
a month old floats vertically upon
the pointed end.���The Commercial
