WELL DONE.
C. A. Crosbie, supervisor of British Columbia branches of the Royal
Bank of Canada, arrived 'by s.s.
Transfer, on Tuesday evening, to
make tbe annual inspection of tbe
local branch.
After a thorough examination of
the book��> and .other details he expressed himself as very much pleased with the perfect condition iu
which lie had found everything.
Mr. Crosbie, who was accompanied by his wile, returned .to
Vancouver Wednesday evening.

The pleasant purgative effect experienced by all who use Chamberlain's Stomach and Liver Tablets,

makes one feel joyful.���For sale by

According to The Commercial,
of Winnipeg, the visible supply of
oats in the United States and Canada, east of the Rocky Mountains,
is 9,506,000 bushels, compared
with 7*446,000 bushels a year ago.
Don't forget the auction sale by
H. N. Rich, of dairy stock, on
Tuesday next, at E. B. Ladner's
iarm on the Gowdy road.   See ad..
Inkerly: "I can't read this writing." Bossby: '"Pooh! The writing is good enough! Any ass could
read it.   .Hand it -to,me."
It is a self-evident proposition
that agricultural fairs which receive
grants of public money should give
the public something of value therefor. It is not the province of governments in these days to assist in
providing amusement for the people. A good many agricultural
societies are now making an earnest
effort to improve their fairs by the
introduction of educational features,
and their example is being followed
by the large exhibitions which do
not ordinarily receive legislative
grants.'' There are still some fairs
controlled largely by the business
men of the towns, which seem to be
held for the purpose of attracting
visitors who will prove good customers, but the number is for-
tunatelv becoming few. It is now
generally recognized that shows
exist primarily for the purpose of
improving agricultural conditions.
TEACHING       MAJ.KET        REQUIREMENTS.
The up-to-date fair secures the
services of expert judges, who explain the reasons for their decisions
in the ring and give addresses on
the best types of horses, cattle,
sheep and swine. In this way the
judging may be made an educa-
ional feature instead of merely an
allotment of premiums by men who
are often incompetent or biased in
their judgment. The awarding of
-prizes at a fair is a comparatively
unimportant matter as compared
with other considerations. What is
really desirable is that fairs should
be the means of disseminating information   and   of  fixing   correct
**
ideals in the minds of those who are
producing food-stuffs aud on whom
the prosperity of Canada depends.
Desirable and undesirable types ot
fowls may be shown with lectures on
the fattening of chickens for tht;
British and domestic markets and
exhibitions ot killing, plucking and
packing for export. A model poultry house, with incubators, brooders
fattening crates and other appli-
ancs, interested thousauds of visit-
rors at the Toronto fair this year.
Practical demonstrations of the proper packing of fruit for export
should be given in fruit districts by
expert packers, and the most approved styles of fruit packages exhibited.
TO   IMPROVE FARM CROPS.
Another'feature worthy ot adop-
I tion by all agricultural societies, but
���which only a few bave yet taken up,
is the growing of illustration plots
on the fair ground. At a small expense a very interesting and instructive exhibit ofthe best varieties
of the grasses, clovers, millets,
sorghums, corn, fodder and pasture
plants, turnips, mangels and sugar
beets can be provided. By studying
these plots farmers may learn just
what .crops and what varieties are
best adapted to their farms, thus
[bringing home to particular conditions of soil and climate the general
conclusions arrived .at by the ex-
I peridental farms. In all kinds of
jsf.irm crops'the yield per acre may
I be materially increased and the
quality substantially improved by
the use of seed which has been
: graded up by careful growing and
���systematic, intelligent selection,
continued without interruption from
year to year. This fact cannot be too
*_jon brought home to the farmers ol
Canada, and one ot the best ways
of doing so would  be  to  have  on

Cloverdale.
On Thursday, the 29th inst., we
celebrate our annual exhibition.
In the evening there is to be a
grand concert and ball. The programme will be under the management ol Allan Seymour, of Vancouver. The following programme
has been arranged: Quartette, by
the Zephyrs; orchestra, mandolins,
cello and piano; baritone solo, J, A.
Hyndman; banjo solo, E. W. Cunningham; quartette, Zephyrs;, violin solo, A. D. Seymour; intermission; orchestra; bass solo, A. D.
Seymour; banj j solo, E. W. Cunningham; quartette, Zephyrs.; cello
and violin, Messrs. Ward and Seymour; quartette, Zephyrs; God
Save the King. After the concert,
there is to be a dance.
There will be a special excursion
train irom Port Guichon, leaving
at 7:30 p.m. Tickets good for the
morning train. Calls will .'be made
at any intermediate point where
there is a crowd.
NEW    WESTMINSTER.
The secretary of the Bench Show
reports having received word from
a prominent importer and breeder
ot thoroughbred dogs in Victoria that
he will be up here Exhibition week
and will bring with him a string of
dogs. The same gentleman asked
for an additional supply of premium
lists and entry forms, so it looks as
though the Capital would be well
represented here.
The directors of the big Fall Fair
have adopted another new 'idea in
connection with the Exhibition literature. Not content with getting
out the neat aud convenient prize
list, they are going to do away
with the old-fashioned poster, and
instead .will have a general outline
of the programme for the week
printed on cards to be suspended on
ribbons,-something neat at attractive and a new departure in exhibition.-advertising.
CHILIsIWACK.
Chilliwack's Fair takes place on
Wednesday next, and the Citizens''
Committee have a nice programme
of sports .arranged for, aud with
good weather they should combine
,to make the people, who attend,
quite happy.

A GOOD  OFFER.
Tlie agriculturists of B. C. have
heretofore had no paper devoted
solely to their interests from a B.
C. standpoint, but in Suburb and
Country, published weekly at Vic-j
toria, we now have a paper aiming!
to deal with farm problems in B.C.,
and to this end they have secured a
staff of successful ai'd practical people to contribute articles and an-
Svver questions on matters pertaining to conditions facing the B. C.
farmer, fruit grower, stockman,
poultry-keeper, dairyman or others'
engaged in farming pursuits. The
'���Question Box" is open -to all on
all subjects, such as fruit-growing,
poultry, soil*, and fertilizers, insect
pests, etc., etc. The .paper is $1
per year but we have arranged to
send you The Delta Times and
Suburb and Country for $1.50 per
year for both papers.

For the first time in the histoxy
ofthe C. P. R. and, it is believe*},
for the first time_.incerailways were
opened in the Dominion, a Canadian passenger train ;has beep
"held up." This happened laft
Saturday night to the C. P. 'R.
Transcontinental Express, officially
known as No. 1, apddjae to arrive
here a 7/4-5 p. m.
The scene of :the hold-up was
between Silverdale, four and a hajf
miles from Mission and RuSki-n.,-_i*c
miles from Mission. The engineer,
Nat Scott, was surprised by va -map.
with a gun, who was joined by two
others, and who.forced hum to atop
the train. There were at least three
men iirthe job, while some of *._��
train crew say there were foujorffiwe.
Thc mail and express car was -cut
off from the rest of the train and the
car was looted by the -robbers,
whose booty amouted to *bout $7,-
000 in gold dust and cash, and the
registered mail package.
The passengers were not-molestejl
and after they had secured their
plunder, the,robbers disappeared.in
the bush. The locomotive was thep
-run back 'to .the test ot the train
and after couplinguup the train was
brought in to Vancouver.
Immediate action was taken to
bring the desperadoes *to justice.
By the latest reports, however,they
are still at large, .witji ,tfae tpoliqe

The Mitchell road has abcut five
chains of the most disgraceful road
on the Delta. It isn't a terrible
distance from a wharf and a little
f ravel would soon fix it. Why is
it left undone?
We have very great pleasure in
noting the fact that the Council is
making a fine job of the wharf approach from Delta street, which
will be much appreciated by the
men whose business houses are adjacent thereto.
Why so much fuss about this C.
P. R. hold-up? Is it not generally
understood that the provincial government is bard-up, and. are not
some of them out on a fishing expedition in the neighborhood of
Mission City?   NufF kauz.

Grave fears are entertained for

which is now nearly a month overdue at the port of Ladner. Through
the negligence of the powers that

The Proper Treatment for a Sprained Ankle.
As a 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 Chnmberlain'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 days.���-For sale by F. J.
MacKenzie.

Legislation which diverts transportation from its natural channels
into artificial ones does so at a loss
and waste of capital proportionate
to the effectiveness of the interference with natural laws. An illustration of this is afforded by the
duties on coal. Originally imposed
in Ottawa to enable the coal owners of Nova Scotia to supply the
Western market, they operate simply
to enhance the price of coal to the
Ontario consumer. Nova Scotia
coal gets as far as Montreal but not
beyond; from there to Windsor or
rather to Fort William and Rat
Portage the Ontario consumer buys
American coal with the duty added
to the price. The aggregate amount paid by Ontario in duty during the last quarter of a century is
well over $30,000,000, a vast sum
to be taken from the working capital of the province. The case is
even more serious in New England.
Set a coal barge afloat on the Nova
Scotia coast and it will drift to
Massachusetts. The coal freight
rates from Nova Scotia by water to
Boston are about one-quarter of the
all-rail or combined water and rril
rates from West Virginia, which
supplies the bulk of the bituminous coal used there. It is estimated
that in the past thirty years the
New England Stetes have paid
fioo.ooo.-ooo on account of the
duty against Nova Scotia coal,
from which they have not received
a dollar of direct benefit.
When tbe Presidential election
Is over in November, a movement
Will be started on both sides of the
line to bring about reciprocity in
coal. If it succeeds, and there is
every prospect that it will, Nova
Scotia will supply New England to
the advantage ot both, while Ontario will get her cnal free of duty
from tbe mines of Ohio and Pennsylvania. Fortunately the question
it aot a party one iu C.-mada. When
the duties were imposed on American coal, five and twenty years ago,
Sir Charles Tupper said his aim
Was to bring about reciprocity; and
Mr. Fielding ha.s all along hoped
for reciprocity as the true policy for
both countries.
From this date the charge for
weighing grain on Marshall Smith's
Scale will be reduced to 5 cents.

INTERESTING   THE   'WOMEN    AND
CHILDREN.
Demonstrations of agricultural
processes are-interesting to everyone,
but the operation of a model kitchen
and dining room, with exhibitions
of cooking simple dishes and addresses on domestic science, will
appeal especially to the farmers'
wives and daughters. That the
children may be led to take an intelligent interest in the fair, prizes
might well be olTered for exhibits
by school children of cut flowers,
grains, clovers and grasses, roots
and vegetables, fruits, pressed and
mount ,,'ild flowers, weeds and
weed seeds, beneficial and injurious
insects, and native woods. These exhibits could be supplemented by
essays for which prizes might be offered. Wherever tried this plan has
proved effective in inducing children
to begin the fascinating study of
Nature. Every precaution should
be taken to have a good clean fair,
where all the boys and girls may go
to spend a pleasant and instructive
day without coming in contact with
any injurious'influence.
KEEPING  GOOD SIRES.
Man}* agricultural societies, particularly in Quebec and the maritime Provinces, do not hold fairs,
but in lieu thereof buy and maintain
pure bred sires for the use of their
members. This is a practice which
well might be imitated more largely
in Ontario, where the number of
fairs seems excessive. By adhering
to one breed of cattle, horses, sheep
or swine, as the case may be, the
stock belonging to the members
of a society may be graded
up wonderfully at a small ��ost, but
the habit of changing contiaually
from one breed to another must
fatal to all plans for building up a
good, uniform herd or flock of
grades, which is just what the average farmer needs.
