VOLUME IV.
NORTH VANCOUVER, B. C, FRIDAY, MAY 10. ISO".
NUMBER li
llli
The North Vancouver Horticultural Society held its general meeting last Thursday evening in
municipal hall. President Smith
was in the chair, and despite the
heavy rain there were in attendance
a large number ol ladies and
gentlemen. They decided to ask
the department o( agriculture for
permission to incorporate under
the provisions of the Agricultural
Act, and also to affiliate with the
Farmers' Institute as heretofore.
The question ol building a show
pavilion on the grounds, near
Twenty-first street and Lonsdale
avenue, was brought up, A resolution was put through, covering
this, with only one dissenting
voice.
Mr. W. L, Keene explained that
owing to the dust on the grounds
the exhibits shown in thc tent
were considerably damaged, and
if sufficient money can lie raised
in time a new hill would be built
this year, in which the annual
show would he held. The grounds,
too, should be improved.
After due consideration, these
two motions were moved and carried:
" That the directors are hereby
authorized to take immediate steps
towards reconstruction of the
present association and that they
shall apply to the Lieutenant-Governor in Council for leave to incorporate under the Agricultural
and Horticultural Act, and that
the Farmers' Institute be affiliated
with the new association, and that
the present board of directors be
the members of the lirst board ol
the new association.
"That this meeting considers it
advisable and desirable to make
use of the grounds ol the society
without any delay and that a pavilion must be erected lor exhibition
purposes, and the grounds made
presentable as far as possible this
season, and in order to accomplish
this work the board of directors
are hereby authorised to borrow a
sum not exceeding $3,000, at not
more than 7 per cent on mortgage
of the society's property."
lt being necessary the membership fee was increased Irom 50
cents to $'., half of which sum will
go to the Horticultural Society
and the olher to the Farmers' Institute.
Hie iiiiii •■:.!". of the evening being disposed uf refreshment! were
served by Mrs. lJunbury, the
M isi        ll ;.ed Miss burns.
Mr. Crickmay and
Mr ive   several   vocal
■ .ms, which were much appreciated. Little Miss Grahamc,
in her Scotch dances, delighted
everyone. Mrs. Crickmay acled
as accompanist. Thus one of
the most successful (unctions ever
held by the society was terminated.
Back Numbers.
An exchange points out that it is
inconstcstably true that had not
some individuals, fired by ambition
to shine, or pushed by a natural
desire to exercise thc superior
talents they possessed, risen above
their fellows, gradually thus creating a higher level ol achievement,
civilization would have remained
at a low stage, and all mankind
have been about alike. There can
be no doubt of the necessity of
men of exceptional ability and
ambition in the present order ol
things, but there is much question
whether the exceptional mac gits
more happiness out of fe than the
,i". ■ .■ igo 01 ■■ doei. A n .11 with
talent and ambition cannol bo con*
teniod. Whether it bo fame,
position, power or money which
he seeks, the time never conies
when he is satisfied or is willing to
pause long enough to quietly
enjoy what be has attained. His
pleasure comes to be in seeking
and getting. Even if he reaches
thc summit of his desires he must
struggle to remain there, for there
are always those climbing up from
below, eager to push him from bis
place, and once he has lost it he
becomes that nnhappiest and most
tragic of beings, a back number.
We see him in every walk of
life. The conqueror on his barren
rock, shorn of all his glory, without consolation in the past or hope
for thc future, the statesman whose
day of power has gone, and who
lives out the remnant of his days
in cold neglect, while his rival
Ik Ids his place, tbe popular author
whose name has been on every lip
and who si.iks back into obscurity
to make way tor some new
favorite; actors, clergymen, athletes, men in every avocation, who
have their little hour of popularity
and prominence, which they vainly
strive to lengthen, and who grow
sour and discontented as it slips
away.
What is more pathetic than a
laded belle who clings to the
memories of her past conquests
and deludes herself into thinking
that her crumbling charms still
have power to laciuate. Jealousy,
bitterness and vain regrets fill her
soul as she sees her admirers desert her and realizes that Imr
scepter has departed.
The average man, on the contrary, pursues the even tenor of
his way, txciting no one's envy,
elbowing no one to get his place,
fairly contented with his lot and
with the pleasures that it brings,
and never having climbed to any
eminence of fame or power, experiences none of the pangs which
those must feel who after long and
weary struggles aud paintul con*
HictS seize some alluring prize
which vanishes as they grasp it.
There is fierce excitement and
exhilaration in the pursuit of the
world's baubles, but the greatest
happiness is lound aloni; life's
quiet byways, where in ii allhh.l
toil, with home and friends unl
books and the never-failing beauty
oi nature in all her van ing atpi.'..,,
the truest contentment and satis*
faction are found. If ,1 man maIio
so lives is nevei looked up to ss «
leader, ueithei is he tli led 01
hated .is an enemy. All ah.." he
hu gained Ik '. lepi lo the 1 nd,
and navi 1 fi oil iiie pi n, il in. Be
who mourn and chad ovei distinction that is past and gone, 01
power and prestige lhat has laded
away.
One preeminence there is that
never palls, lhat excites no envy
and that is never lost, He whose
relation to his fellow men e. one of
unfailing, genial kindliness and
helpfulness, and who never
swerves from lofty standards ol
character and duty, docs not Iall
Irom his high estate. He is never
a back number, and when be
passes on fragrant memories o
what he was blossom from his
dust.
What might have proved a lata
accident took place Thursday
afternoon, when Philip Stables,
of the Hotel North Vancouver,
while trying to move a boom of
shingle holts that were lying in
the inlet, lell out of his boat and
was nearly drowned. Mr. H.
Baker rescued him.
Chief and Brigade Re* ign.
Vl a meeting ol the local fire
brigade held on Tuesday, May 7th,
the members decided that they
would resign in a body. President
A. F. Stonor presided, and F.
Johnson acted as secretary. Those
present besides were W.C. Smith,
A. S. Emmerson, Geo. Prime,
R, Wallace and Thos. Prime.
The members discussed the unsatisfactory state of their firefight-
mg apparatus. At the first meeting of thc council this year Chief
Dick sent in a written report
giving details as to what the
brigade needed. But the members
claim that the city fathers did not
act on their suggestions. For the
past two months, they further
poinl out, the new hydrants have
been on the ground, but not put
up, and when the bush fires got
going tbey could not handle them
for lack of water. They also
wanted a hose shed located on
Thirteenth street, thus obviating
the necessity ot hauling the hose
reel up the long hill on Lonsdale
avenue. On Saturday night, when
the brigade was called out, the
chiel tried to get a team to take
the reel up the hill, but could not
get one until a very late hour. The
resignations will take place on the
14th.
Chief Dick was asked by The
Express why he resigned his position as chief constable, and he replied "for reasons even worse
than those of the firemen."

The question of allowing thi

tlio 1 who ' .imped in iiie vicinity
"I North Vancouver have obtained
their water supply either from the
numerous creeks which run into
the inlet or from the water laps on
private property, It was pointed
out that the place had assumed
such large proportions that the
streams referred to are becoming
more or less polluted, and therefore it is not desirable that campers
use ile- water. On the other
hand, the careless way ill which
these pleasure-seekers have heretofore used the tap- of private
citizens makes it objectionable
that the city continue so to do
without receiving any remuneration. Last year some attempt was
made to collect 50 cents from each
camper using taps, but considerable difficulty was experienced in
collecting the fee, The matter
was finally laid over without any
action being taken.
The council then adjourned.

There's even a reason for odd
prices—J! 1.1 J, $4.99, {3.24, and so
un. The reason ior then prices is
that they keep the palron wailing
lor change, and while he waits he
looks around, seeing, two to one,
something else that he wants to
buy. Odd prices, causing the
customer to examine the stock, are
responsible (or some 15 or 20 per
