The Imperial Parliament was

The famine in Russia is daily
growing more acute, and will
likely soon have reached such
proportions as to put a complete
stop to the exportation of wheat
from that country for some time
to come. In 1906 the production
of wheat, oats, rye and barley,
combined in Russia, was 462,000,-
000 bushels less than that of
1905, and 662,000,000 less than
that of 1904. The result of such
conditions is likely to be greatly
to the advantage of the grain
growing districts of this continent.

MENT.     ,s
The Foresters monthly social
and entertainment was given in
their Hall in the Odd Fellows'
Building on Monday evening,
when, notwithstanding the bad
condition of the country roads, a
large number of the members of
that growing Order, and their
invited guests, were present.
Immediately after arrival, these
assembled in small groups at
tables scattered conveniently
throughout the Hall, and engaged
in social games with cards, or indulged in such other pastimes, or
social intercourse, as taste or inclination suggested. While this
was in progress instrumental
music was furnished by members
of the company, and the sweet
melodies gave zest to the enjoyment of the pleasure-loving assembly.
Mr. A. D. McEachern was requested to address the audience,
and responded by delivering an
interesting and forceful narrative
of the introduction of the Order
into the Dominion of Canada-
its phenominal growth from a
handful of members with meagre
resources, to a present membership of 250,000 with $10,500,000
in the treasury. The various
benefits to be derived from membership were set forth in order,
and emphasis was laid upon the
fact that said benefits were not
restricted to payments to be made
after death, but that through the
several benificent departments in
operation there were benefits to
be enjoyed in life by the membership���benefits extending from
the earliest stages of life up to
the period of old age with its infirmities. Mr. McEachern was
listened to with earnest attention
by his large audience, and at the
close of his address was heartily
This was followed by a short
but excellent programme, consisting of recitations, vocal and in-
strumsntal music, etc., as follows:���
A solo by Mrs. Glennie was a
faithful rendering of a southern
plantation refrain, in which the
characteristics of the darkey
songster were admirably reproduced.
A solo by Mr. Sydney Raby,
consisting of a character song,
was rendered with that gentleman's inimitable talent ��� convulsed the audience with laughter, and received a vociferous encore. The song given in response was even more humorous,
and stirred the risibilities of the
most stoical.
A* recitation by Mr. Forsyth
followed, the subject of which
carried one .back to the.scenes of
internecine "���strife between- the
British warriors and the patriotic
Scottish chief8 'during the dark
days of the Middle Ages. Mr.
Forsyth's rendering of this piece
was such as to disarm the most
critical, and the varying moods
involved, ranging from pathetic
dejection to ale flash of
" That stern toy which warriors feel
In foemen worthy of their'steel,"
were vividly set forth.
By general request, Mr. Raby
sang the character song "Following in Father. Footsteps"���ai
song with whiai ';e had oh other!
occasions dclightecr Chilliwack
audiences, and - which on Monday
night was greeted with an irresistible encore. Anothercharac-.
ter song was rendered with like
result, followed by yet another,
the encore to which could not be
complied with. It would be impossible to speak too highly of
the talent possessed by Mr. Raby
for that kind of song���a talent
which, if it could be brought into
use in the large centres of civilization, would result in yet fuller
development, and ensure him a
prosperous and popular career.
A performance of instrumental
music by Mrs. R. Bamford, was
given in faultless style and elicited applause. The programme
was brought to an end by a trombone duet, "Larboard Watch
Ahoy," the excellent rendering
of which by Mr. A. C. Hall and
Mr. Jack Henderson elicited admiration, as the difficulty of giving a faithful interpretation of
the famous piece of music with
such instruments was realized.
A hearty encore was given, and
was responded to by rendering a
duet of a totally different class
of music, with equally excellent
At the end of the programme
light refreshments were served
and were heartily partaken of by
the large assembly. After the
hall had been cleared of all obstructing furnishings, the members of the Order gathered in
the centre in a circle, and with
hands linked in fraternal grasp
sang the national anthem, in
which all present united with
hearty good will.
The orchestra then filled the
spacious hall with melody, partners were chosen, and the rest of
the evening was given up to the
exhilerating fascinations of the
dance, until the "wee, small
hours" arrived and admonished
the happy throng that it was time
to disperse. The whole entertainment was a source of unalloyed pleasure to all who were
fortunate enough to be present,
and the geniality which pervaded
the atmosphere throughout the
evening, together with the fraternal spirit with which all were
greeted, will malce it an event
that will be long remembered,
and will contribute not a little to
publish to the world the beneficent fraternal work in which the
Foresters Order is engaged.

S. A. Cawley, Esq.,
Dear Sir:���I beg to acknowledge receipt of your letter of
Feb. 6th in which you refer to
remarks made by me in a sermon preached on the evening of
Jan. 27th, which seemed to imply
that a certain man had had whiskey supplied him in the office of
the firm of which you are senior
partner, with the purpose of influencing his vote in the approaching election.
Since I have made further enquiries into the matter I am assured that the said individual
not only did not receive the liquor
on your premises but that he did
not get it from anyone acting as
your agent during the campaign.
I regret exceedingly tnat
through any words spoken by
me any imputation has rested
upon you and I hereby exonerate
you so far as I am able from any
connection with the unfortunate
incident and authorize you to
make any use of this letter you
may see fit.
Yours sincerely,
H. J. Robertson.

Lite and Death.
(By Lucy A. Walker.)
There are some subjects which
seem always to be avoided in
general conversation, and thereby acquire a significance wholly
unproportionate to their real importance : death is one of these.
We all know what life is, or think
we do, but death is to most people only the cessation of life.
An old adage declares that there
are'only two absolutely certain
facts���death and taxes. Well, if
that is so, I am sure we calk enough about taxes, and discuss
them pro and con, but avoid the
subject of deajft, or talk only
against it, never even trying to
say anything for it-
It is time we should look death
in the face and see what he really is. Solomon says, "There is
one event unto all"(Eccl. 9:3),
but he also says in the same
verse, "This is an evil among all
that are done''under the sun."
If it is an evil, why continue it ?
We have always accepted it as
inevitable, and no fault of
ours, yet have tried to put it off
as long as possible, and have finally succumbed with the assurance that it was "God's will."
Well, if it was God's will, why
did we fight against it so long and
call it evil, and an enemy ? Even
Paul calls it an enemy, and says,
"The last enemy that shall be
destroyed is death." How shall
we destroy it ? Certainly not by
yielding to it. Because death
has always been considered as
an enemy, we have feared it, and,
fearing it, we have never tried
to conquer or, destroy it. But
how ? The way we teach a
horse not to fear a thing is to
drive him up and let him look at
it; let us do the*fcame with ourselves. Jeans said, "Love your
enemies." 'Have we ever tried
to love death���the greatest of
them all ? Then we have not
fulfilled his commands. The first
step toward loving a person or
thing is to become acquainted
with it. Let us acquaint ourselves with death and fear it no
Not long ago an article appeared in a Sunday paper entitled,
"It is a crime to die," and Paul
says, ' 'The wages of sin is death;
but the gift of God is eternal
life through Jesus Christ our
Lord.'' (Rom. 9:23.) "Through
Jesus Christ our Lord," not
through or by his death, for he
is the holy one and shall not be
permitted to see corruption. If
death is the result of sin���a falling short of the mark���let us
"press toward the mark for the
prize of the high calling of God
in Christ Jesus" (Phil. 3:14), and
abandon the way of ignorance,
and set our feet "in the way of
righteousness," which is "life,
and in the pathway thereof there
is no death." (Prov. 12:28.)
What did Jesus mean when he
said, "There be some standing
here, which shall not taste of
death, till they see the son of
man coming in his kingdom"?
(Matt. 16:28.) Jesus also said,
"if a man keep my saying he
shall never see death." Neither
of these meant that their bodies
would not pass away, but that,
before that time came to them,
they should understand and know
what death was, and pass through
it as through an open door into
life and liberty; that they should,
by knowing it, be able to overcome it and not be overcome by
it. We can do the same. We
have feared, dreaded and avoided
it because it separated us from
our friends that we loved; we
have called it cruel even when it
has done what none of our friends
could do���ended suffering and
given rest. Let us examine this
so-called enemy of mankind.
Draw a circle and call it eternity;
make two marks in the circumference and call the enclosed see*
tion life, or that part of eternity
which we know as such, and
which is divided from the whole
only by the two points or events
known as birth and death; now
how does this arc differ from the
rest of the circumference ? In
no way at all except in being
bound or limited by the marks
we have set, and when we have
removed our limitations, set by
our ignorance, we continue on in
one unbroken consciousness of
life eternal.
But what is the death of the
body which we so greatly fear ?
Is it, even it, anything so very
dreadful? No it is simply life
unorganized. What does that
mean ? Well, take for example
a community of people. Each
and every one is an individual,
filled with life, love, hope, desires and ambitions; but as one
alone cannot accomplish much,
they are banded together under
a head or leader, and as he directs so they all do, because it is
for the good of all and each;
then let the head be taken away,
and though they remain together
for a time, they will eventually
disband and each one seek the
environment best suited to him
or his requirements. So it is
with the body; it is an aggregation of atoms, each of which has
life or is life, but organized with
one body that they may express
something higher than any alone
could do. The head of this aggregation is the soul, and when the
soul has used the different atoms
to the extent of their usefulness
to it, or to the extent of its knowledge, it lets go of them, and
each one goes to its own domain-
earth, air, fire or water.
At the World's Fair at Chicago,
in one of the exhibits was a collection of jars, ranging from
very large to very small, and the
whole collection was labelled,
"A man." Each jar containing
its proportion of elements belonging to an average sized human
body; but there was no jar labeled Soul, for no chemist or anatomist has yet been able to ideate it.
"The Lord God formed man of
the dust of the ground, and
breathed into his nostrils the
breath ofjlife; and man become
a living soul." (Gen. 2:7) And
this living soul, which came by
the breathing of the spirit, and
is now, and ever will be a living
soul, is both chemist and anatomist (one who knows how to use
atoms), and according to its
knowledge, or ability to use its
knowledge, will the resulting
body be. Then what should the
death of the body be. Simply an immediate returning of
its atoms to their several native
conditions, and such will it be
when each soul has learned to
use matter, which is only one
form of Spirit, in the right way;
when each has learned to walk
in the way of right-use-ness.
But'this will never be till we begin to study death instead of
avoiding it, nor even by saying,
"There is no death," until we
understand what that means.
As a power in opposition to Life
there is no death, but as a casting off of that for which we have
no further use, yes. Every day
of our lives we do that, and Paul
says, "I die daily;" but let us
learn to live daily by taking in
the place of those discarded atoms only those that shall be of
use to us, and not just any old
thing that may happen along.
A plant selects from the earth
and air sue1! elements as it needs:
one plant takes one thing and
another takes something else,
or different quantities of the
same thing; surely the soul
should be able to excel a plant in
growth or exceed it in knowledge.
If the soul believes in matter
as matter, it will build accordingly , but it will not be able to
perpetuate the body it builds,
because the body needs some
thing more���it needs Spirit,
which is Life, and the soul needs
knowledge, which it gains by
experience. That is what we,
as souls and bodies, are here for,
and it will help us greatly to affirm constantly, and believe with
nil our hearts and iiiIiiiIn that
"There is but one Power ami one
Presence in tin* universe���the
good omnipotent, and Spirit it*
the only substance���infinite, etei'. \ \
mil, unchangeable."
Well, when we have all learned,
iih some of us have, what death
is, ami that the soul remains the
same, or as like a child learning
from failure how to succeed, and
that, the separation of bodies
need not lie separation of souls,
we shall have made great progress, anil will be able to say with
Paul, "<) death, where is thy
sting? 0 grave, where is thy
victory?" The sting of death is
sin," ignorance, wrong ideals;
when we have discarded those
and also the law (mati-madft),
which is "the strength of sin,"
or ignorance, then we shall be
"transformed by the renewing,
of our minds, and able to
finish with Paul's exultant
assertion, "But thanks be to
God, which giveth us the victory through our Lord Jesus
The Thaw Re-Hash.
We cannot see that any possible good purpose can be served
by the publication in Canadian
papers of whole pages of matter
dealing with the notorious Thaw
trial now going on. All the disgusting details were given us before, with illustrations from every possible point of interest, but
now it would seem that the whole
programme was to be gone over
again. There may have been

for all this warmed-over sensational trash. The notoriety
gained by those connected with
crimes of this nature serves only
the cause of crime itself, and lias
an absolutely demoralizing effect,
as has been often proven. We
are careful to keep off our billboards pictures that might possibly incite to wrong-doing, but.

The Economy ol Sheep-
One of the greatest advantages
of a flock of sheep on a farm is
the economical way in which
they can be carried. It has been
established that it costs about a
cent a pound less to produce mutton or lamb than it does to produce either beef or pork, and
that is largely brought about in
the reduction in the labor, and
you can easily see that there is a
great advantage to any man who
has the inclination to start breeding a flock of sheep.
It is not necessary to have an
expensive outfit in order to start
in the sheep business; very inferior protection from the weather is all that is required. In fact,
except for a very short time in
the year, I believe that sheep
will do better for the owner if
they are not protected from the
weather at all. I believe the
greatest success Can be had m
sheep raising if they are left entirely out in the air, and I have
proven this to my satisfaction,
even in the fitting of sheen for
show purposes. I never bring
my sheep in from the time there
is grass enough for them to go
out in the fields in the spring until they are brought in to take to
the exhibitions. They are never
housed night or day, and I find I
can succeed-better in that way
than I can by bringing them in
and housing them. I Know that
a great many exhibitors still think
.iCnecessary.to house them ; but
I also know that'I can feed them
more economically and to better
advantage, and have more
healthy and vigorous sheep than
when I house them, and one of
the advantages of sheep raising
is the small expenditure that is
necessary to provide the building
to take care of the sheep.
Then the number of different,
kinds of forage that a sheep will
devour and thrive on is another
advantage, and it is a very considerable one. I have heard a
great many farmers say that one
of their objections to sheep was
that they were very hard on pasture. My experience is that you
can carry more sheep, more
pounds of sheep to the acre, by
25 to 30 per cent, than you can
of any other class of stock; that
is when they are living on the
pasture alone. Lots of farmers
will have all the cattle and horses
on the pasture that the pasture
is able to carry, and then they
will put on a flock of 25 to 30
ewes and lambs, and, of course,
these sheep are going to eat
closely. Sheep naturally do bite
close, and the cattle will have the
pasture in such a condition that
the sheep are compelled to bite
close, and then, of course, you
will have a short pasture. But
if you will take twenty acres,
and put cattle on ten acres of it
and stock the other ten acres with
sheep, and stock both fields up
to their full limit, you will find
that you can carry from 25 to 30
per cent, more live weight of
[sheep than of cattle. T have
proven that several times, and I
think any sheep man, who has
tried it, will bear me out.���A. W.

The initial error of these "scribes

supposing that Mr. McBride's

premise for arguments sake, the

NEW WESTMINSTER is the natural
centre of the well known and fertile
Fraser Valtey, and during the past
year the rapid growth of established
industries, and the introduction of
new ones has given a tremendous impetus to all branches of business.
New Westminster is a modern city in
every particular, possesses the only
successful farmers market and fresh
water harbor in B. C, and from every
viewpoint is a natural site for. manu-
i faeturing industries and an ideal city
of homes.
CHILLIWACK is the commercial
centre of the beautiful Chilliwack
Valley, "The Garden of the Fraser,"
famed for its fertile lands, well
equipped creameries, profitable fruit
growing, magnificent scenery and
mild climate. In the near future
Chiiliwack will be the terminus of an
electric railway from Vancouver and
New Westminster, which means an
immediate rapid advance in its town
and farm property values. Chilliwack
is also the base of supplies for all the
adjacent mining camps.
about 300,000 acres of very productive agricultural land, has a cash
market for everything that can be
produced, forests containing billions
of feet of the finest timber, the greatest salmon river in the world, mineral
deposits of copper, iron, coal and fire
clay. Great railway enterprises,
both electric and steam, are now being developed throughout the valley,,
bringing it into close toucj witr{ the
market cities of Vancouver and New
Westminster, which will make it more
than ever "The Farmer's Paradise."
VANCOUVER, with its natural position and splendid shipping facilities,
being the terminus of several transcontinental railways and on the Highway to the Orient, is destined to be
"The Great City of the West" and
we cannot too strongly urge our
clients to "Investigate Vancouver"
without any delay.

It is seldom that a parody can
be classified as genuine poetry.
The most notable exception to
this rule which has come under
our notice for many years is furnished by the Vancouver Province of Feb. 4th, in the form of
a clever adaptation of Tennyson's
"May Queen" to the case of Mr.
W:W;-��Mcfrmes. *fiveryvefte*
is replete witb hits which are
both pungent and witty, and the
whole constitutes a humourous
poem of real literary worth, at
once creditable to the author and
calculated to immortalize a man
whose public career is destined
to consign both his name and his
history to the waste-basket of
the years. Thus far the author's name has been withheld, but
must sooner or later become
known. For the benefit of our
readers who may not have already seen it, we take the liberty
of reproducing the poem below.
I -The Eve of the Election.
You must r.-.ind and call me early, call
.... me early, Kelly dear;     ,
tomorrow '11 be the proudes*r*day I've
known for many a year;
Of all my fitful life, Kelly, the meniest
of the whole,
For I'm to be top o'the poll, Kelly ; I'm
to be top o' the poll,
There's many a sharp, sharp tonque,
they say, but none so sharp as mine;
There's Bowser and there's Henderson,
and many more that shine;
But none so cute as Billy, on all the
city roll,
So I'm to be top o' the poll, Kelly ; I'm
to be top o' the poll.
I fidget so all night, Kelly, that I shall
be awake,
And eager for your coming when the
day begins to break ;
I must get a pretty flower or two to
deck my button-hole,
Epj I'm to be.top o' the poll,   Kelly.:
I'm to be top o' the poll.
As I came up on Granville street whom
think you I should spy,
But Tatlow, at the Postoffice, with sad
and downcast eye;
I could not help but pity him, that's
true, upon me soul;
For I'm to be top o' the poll, Kelly; I'm
to be top o' the poll
He shuddered as he saw me; his hair
was out of curl,
And I passed him without speaking like
any sullen churl;
They call me cruel-hearted, but I care
not whot they say,
For I'm to be top o' the poll,  Kelly ;
I'm to be M. L. A.
They say that Garden's awful sore because he can't get in,
They'say ;McGuire will'have a'fit, but I
don't care a pin ;
Macgowan, too, I'll humble, in the
dust I'll make him roll,
For I'm to be top o' the poll, Kelly ;
I'm to be top o' the poll.
I've got a wire from Wilfy, he says he
hopes I'll win;
And you'll be there, my Kelly dear,  to
aee me carried in,
And the Lib'ral boys from all the wards
when the band begins to play,
For I'm to be top o' the poll, Kelly ;I'm
to be M. L. A. <'
II.-After the declaration of the
..... -  Poll
They told me I was sure to win   the
mean, deceitful crew, -
That Bowjer hadn't got a chance.-but
oh, it wasn t true ;
But now the  legislative halls I shall
never, never see,
So you can tuck me in my bunk and
think no more of me.
Bowser will make his speeches to a
sympathetic cheer;
Macdonald-oh,    confound    him���will
make a mark I fear :
And Hawthornthwaite, the demagogue,
will beat hia noisy drum,
While I, in some small office, am a-bit-
ing of my thumb.
In some small office, Kelly, I shall have
to grumble on,
And chew the cud of bygone years when
all my foes are gone,
And In the long lone evenings, by the
fireside shall sit,
Instead of brightening the House with
'���''���   my free arid'nVshfng wit.
When 'discussion waxed  high   Kelly,
within those noble walls,
When McBride shall lead to vict'ry, or
Carter-Cotton bawls,
You'll  never hear my eloquence, nor
when they call out "vote,"
Hear me call out "aye" or "no" with a
bold and manly throat.
I have been hot and hasty, but you'll
forgive me now,
You'll shake me by the hand, Kelly, and
not make any row,
Nay, nay, you must not weep,  Kelly,
nor let your grief be wild,
There's Farris still remains to you���
you have another child.
Don't let Neelands come to see me while
I feel so very down,
But he and Henderson may call when
.- - ��� I've gone out of town; -
They'll find my notes of speeches upon
my bedroom floor,
Let 'em take 'em; let 'em use them: I
shall never want them more.
And tell that cursed Bowser,  with his
pert and chaffing tongue,
That to the nearest lamp-post I should ]
like to see him strung :
If I had won-I  ennnot  tell���I might
have been a knight,
But now I'm doomed to linger on in sad
and sorry plight.
But not for long, I've had about enough
of public life,
I'll see what Wilfy means to do;   I've
had too much of strife;
P'raps he'll send me to Jamaca,  with
my sorrow in my breast;
For after the time I've had.  Kelly,
why earthquakes are a rest.  .

that 1$. I', is the fairest province
and Chilliwack its most favored
spot therein.
Since coming to England in
November 1 have spent most of
my time in Cumberland near the
city of Carlisle and I have been
revelling among historic ruins
and rejoicing in the folk-love of
this border-land country. A few-
yards from where 1 write is the
site of an old Roman wall built in
the second century. The plow-
shear still turns out stones from
the foundation and a depression
marks the line of the moat.
Walby, (by the wall) my cousin's farm and my present abode
is three miles from Carlisle and
we can follow the wall site, into
the" city. Carlisle lias seenstlr-
vingdnys. Kings haw died within her castle and a tower still
stands where Scotland's beautiful Queen Mary was held prisoner
for live weeks.
My brother John, well known
in Chilliwack, joins me next week
aud we will then go south to
London. In the two mouths 1
have been in England 1 have had
the best of health, given several
lectures and had a good time
Today 1 have been much interested in the process of making
black puddings. I am not sure
that 1 shall like them but I shall

With best wishes to friends in
Chilliwack, I remain,
Yours truly,

The Value of a Cheque���depends not upon the perfection of
the writing, but upon the standing of the man who signed it. J.
B. Rockfeller's writing may not
be half as perfect as that of an
ordinary roustabout, but it
would be good for at least #100-
000,000, while the roustabout's
would be worthless. Thus it is
to your interest to deal with
Thomas the Jeweler, who is behind his goods and will give you
a square deal. Opposite Post
Debate.���On Monday evening the
Epwor'h League of the Methodist
church held an interesting debat' ::i
which the following question was iiYir-
ougl.ly discussed. "Resolved, that the
prcpoBed union of the Methodists,
Presbyterian and Congregationalists is
in the best interests of Christianity."
The Carman Epworth League espoused
the affirmative side of the question and
the Chilliwack League the negative.
The pros and cons were thoroughly investigated and threshed out, with result
that verdict was given in favor of nonunion.
It's Up to Somebody,���Ithas been a
matter of general comment in town
during the past week, that the hydrant
at Smith's corner stands buried under
a huge snow drift. It is obvious that
it would not be available for use, if a
fire should occur in that vicinity, until
the snow is removed, and valuable time
would have to be given to the work
which might be devoted to saving property. Whose province is it to look after such matters? Surely it is not
proposed that the members of the Fire
brigade shall be confronted by a difficulty of this character if a conflagation
should occur.
