The Dominion government
will shortly establish a quarantine station at Prince Rupert.
A Paris periodical says that
American tourists spend annually $228,000,000 in Europe.
A London despatch says that
Mark Twain was the center of
attraction at the King's garden
party at Windsor, on June 22nd.
He received the degree of doc-

June 25th.	
It is reported that Hon. George
P. Graham, leader of the Ontario opposition, will be called to
Ottawa to fill the vacancy in the
cabinet caused by the retirement
of Hon. C, S. Hyman.
Sir Thomas Shaughnessy, president of the Canadian Pacific
Railway, says the company is

The measure was strongly opposed by two aldermen, and

Vancouver accorded a right
royal welcome to His Imperial
Highness, Prince Fushimi last
Saturday on his arrival from the
east No effort was spared to
do honor to the representative
of Britain's great Oriental ally,
and the city was loyally assisted
by the local subjects of the sunrise kingdom. The Prince crossed to Victoria on Sunday, where
he was received in that hearty
and cordial manner for which
the capital city is noted. After
enjoying the beauties of Victoria,
as the city's guest on Monday,
the Prince sailed for the Orient
on H.M.S. Monmouth on the following day.	
It has been decided to form an
association to be called the New
Westminster Property Owners'
Association, which shall have
for one of its chief objects the
advertising of that city, and
drawing attention to the opportunities it offers as a place for
legitimate investment, for the
establishment of industries and
for home seekers. Mr. F. J.
Hart was elected chairman of
the organization and Messrs. J.
H. Vidal, E. W. Bacchus and
T. R. Pearson were made members of the board, Mr. E. H.
. Sands being appointed hon. secretary pro tem.
Premier McBride Commands Respect Ot Unprejudiced Observer
-"British Columbian Giant"
T. P. O'Connor, the brilliant
journalist and parliamentarian,
writing in his own journal, has
this to say respecting British
Columbia's Premier:
I allude to this Canadian dinner because it brought home to
me, even more than I realized
already, what a tremendous
heritage this empire has in that
country. The mind almost staggers before the gigantic possibilities of Canada's future. I
sat next Mr. McBride, the prime
minister of British Columbia.
Here you have an excellent
specimen of the provincial ruler
of Canada. They build their
men in those young countries
at least the men who get to the
top���on large lines. Mr. Mc
Bride is, I should say, over six
feet high. His face, still looking
almost boyish in its freshness,
with a strong jaw, fine dark
eyes, the mobile mouth of the
speaker and the politician, is
surmounted by white hair, the
one mark, perhaps, of the strenuous life through which he must
have passed to have got so high
at so early an age. It was when
you found yourself face to face
with embodied British Columbia
like this that you began to realize what a Canadian province
means, and what are the duties
and responsibilities of a provincial prime minister. Have you
any idea of the extent of British
Columbia ? Well here is what
it is. I quote from Chamber's
" Area 383,300 square miles,
or nearly four and a half times
as big as England, Scotland and
Wales. Of the total land area,
say 250,000,000 acres, only
900,000 are as yet occupied.
Climate ; On the coast mild,
like the south coast of England.
In the interior subject to great
variations, but the winter is
" History : Crown colony in
1859, and in 1871 entered the
Canadian federation. One instance of rapid growth is furnished by the city of Vancouver.
In 1881 it was forest: in 1891
there were 25,000 inhabitants.
"Population about 250,000.
In 1881, 49,459; in 1901, twenty
years later. 190,000.
" Minerals are very plentiful."
Mr. McBride's Mission.
In this colony are some of the
biggest mines in the world.
There are boundless tracts of
virgin forest. There are millions of acres calling out for the
plows and the strong British
arms behind them. And yet the
population is only a quarter of a
million. Mr. McBride is here in
connection with the business of
his colony. He and the Dominion government have been
carrying on a very polite, but a
very resolute, fight for years as
to the contribution of Mr. Mc
Bride's province to the expenses
of the Dominion, and I should
think even the subtle and suave
Sir Wilfred Laurier���who, I am
told, conceals under this beautiful eighteenth century French
exterior a will of iron-1 should
think that even Sir Wilfred
Laurier would have all his work
cut out for him to beat this
British Columbian young giant
with his will of iron, also underneath his agreeable exterior.
Perhaps I look on the struggle
with some additional interest
from the fact that Mr. McB ide
is the son of Ulster parents, and
I recognize in him some of the
sturdy qualities of that robust
and self-assertive race.
Amendment to B N A. Act Read
Second Time.���No " Final And
Unalterable" Settlement.
London, June 22.���The House
of Commons yesterday unanimously passed the second reading of the British North America
bili after a short and interesting
debate, in which the following
participated : H. W- Foster, opposition -,vh:p F Sir Frederick
Bandbury, Hamar Greenwood,
Sir J. Jardine, R. Duncan and
Winston Churchill.
Several complimentary references were made to British Columbia, repeated tributes being
paid to the loyalty of the province.
Both Mr. Greenwood and Mr.
Churchill referred in appreciative terms to the position taken
by Premier McBride and the able
manner in which he had represented the province.
No doubt is felt that the bill
will pass through its remaining
stages without difficulty in the
shape described in a former despatch. There is no inclination
shown in any quarter to seek its
amendment and all parties agree
in approving of the stand taken
by Premier McBride on behalf of
the province.
The Sovereign Grand Orange
Lodge of British America closed
its annual session last Friday
morning at Vancouver. The attendance was good and the deliberations of the body marked
by the greatest harmony. Dr.
T. S. Sproule, M.P., was reelected Sovereign Grand Master,
and a number of the other leading officers were also re-elected.
As a token of appreciation of the
good work being done by Vancouver Orangemen, the sum of
$500 was voted by the Grand
body toward the building fund
of the new hall being erected in
that city. Strong resolutions
were passed in disapproval of
the' rapid increase of separate
schools in Saskatchewan since
the coming into effect of the
Autonomy Bill. The next place
of meeting will be Midland, Ont-

Ex-Councillor H. R. Phillips,
of Mount Lehman, spent a few
days in Chilliwack last week,
returning home on Sunday.
While here he was the guest of
A. D. Clark of the Lickman Rd.
This was Mr. Phillips' first visit
to the valley, and he expressed
surprise and delight at the beauties and resources of this section of the Fraser district
Asked as to how things were
prospering at Mount Lehman
and generally throughout Matsqui
Municipality, Mr. Phillips replied :
" Everything is booming at
the present time and the outlook
is most encouraging.
The activity in connection
with the G. N. Ry. construction
and the prospects of the early
commencement of the electric
railway have together caused a
considerable stir throughout our
whole district. The G. N. Ry.
people have a large force of men
now busy grading and are apparently pushing things as fast
as the prevailing scarcity of
labor will allow. With the incoming of the railway there has
come a decided stimulus to our
lumbering industry. In addition
to the new mills in the vicinity
of Abbotsford, already noted in
the columns of The Advance,
anotuer shingle mill is being
buiit, on the McGregor place,
bacK of the Durach Schoolhouse,
and Messrs. Milner, a Minnesota
firm, are putting in a lumber
mill on the Mt. Lehman trunk
road about three miles from the
landing. Both farm and timber
lands are in good demand all
over our municipality and many
changes of ownership have taken
place within a few months past.
New settlers are steadily coming
in and we look for a rush when
the line of the Westminster-Chil-
liwack electric railway is finally
settled upon.
"Matsqui Prairie is fast developing and the settlers are resting
easy now that the danger of
high water is past. Clayburn is
booming and promises to become
quite a town."
Asked as to the crop outlook,
Mr. Phillips said that everything
is very promising throughout
Matsqui. The fruit crop of Mt.
Lehman will be good in all lines.
The yield of small fruits will be
quite up to average. Peaches
are well loaded and apples will
be a good crop and much better
in quality than usual on account
of the increased amount of spraying done last spring.
Matsqui will have a big celebration at the Municipal Hall
Grounds at Mt. Lehman on Dominion Day. A good programme
has been arranged, including a
football match, and a variety of
other sports. A feature of
special interest will be a stock
judging contest under the direction of F. M. Logan, B.S.A.,
Prov. Dairy Inspector. The success of the day is a foregone
conclusion because of the well-
known loyalty of the people of
Matsqui to local undertakings.
Dr. Carman, general superintendent of the Canadian Methodist church, and Rev. Dr.
Sutherland, general missionary
secretary of the same church,
were passengers on the Empress
of Japan Monday. They had
been attending a general meeting in Japan to arrange for a
union between the American
and Canadian Missionary efforts. This union was effected
and both churches will work on
a common basis. The principal
part of the missionary work will
in future devolve upon the native
church of Japan, which will be
known as the Conference of
The Chilliwack Club Occupies Its
New Grounds-Growing
In Popularity.
The Chilliwack Tennis Club,
which was organized last February, is proving itself a live
organization, and bids fair to
occupy a large place in the local
field of sport. Already it boasts
a membership of over sixty
and headed by efficient and energetic officers, it is rapidly growing in popularity. The officers
for the present season are: President, H. J. Wilson; Vice-Pres.,
E. Duthie ; Sec.-Treas., W. H.
T. Gahan; Committee, Dr. W.
V. Davies and G. H. W. Ashwell.
That the Club is to be taken
seriously is evidenced by the fact
that it has taken a three-year
lease of three large lots in the
NjwoII addition. These have
been cleared, levelled and fenced
and will afford ample space for
two double courts and one single,
with plenty of room for the usual
seats, awnings, etc., for spectators. The Club occupied its
new grounds for the first time
on Wednesday evening last, and
all are highly pleased with the
beginning which has been made.
We hope to announce some interesting matches in the near
future, and meantime extend
congratulations to the local devotees of the court.
It is officially estimated that
the total provincial revenue for
the ye��r 1906-7 from timber
sources alone will reach $800,000.
The revenue of the Timber Department for the fiscal year,
ending June 30, will be several
hundred thousand dollars in excess of the preceding year.

Chinese Humor
A hungry tramp entered a
Chinese restaurant early on a
Monday morning, and the following conversation ensued between tae tramp and the Chinaman in charge :
" Good morning, Charlie. Can
you fix a hungry man for a little
something to eat ?"
" Good morning. You wantee
you bleakfast ? You vely hun-
gly man, heh ? ''
" You bet I'm hungry. Had
notking to eat since Saturday
and want it bad."
"Too badee.    Umph.    You
likee flish ? "
The tramp thought fish a queer
article   of  food  for   Monday
morning but better than nothing,
and so replied.
"Fish? Why yes, I like fish."
" Alee lite;  you cum lound
Fliday morning.' ���L.D.M.

"I dropped all liniments but Nerviline because I found Nerviline the
3uickest to relieve pain," writes E. S.
enton of St. John's. "If my children
are croupy or sick. Nerviline cures
them. If a case of cramps or stomach
ache turns up, Nerviline is ever ready.
We use Nerviline for neuralgia, rheumatism and all kinds of aches and
pains, it's as good as any doctor." The
great Canadian remedy for the past
fifty years has been Poison's Nerviline

Splendid Inducements  to Exhibitors.- Winning District Exhibits
to Be Sent East
A communication has just
been receivd by Geo. W. Chadsey, Secretary of the Chilliwack
Agricultural Society, from Mayor
W. H. Keary, New Westminster,
manager and secretary of the
Provincial Exhibition, 1907, enclosing a circular descriptive of
the inducements which are offered for district exhibits and
for special commercial fruit displays. This announcement we
are pleased to print in full, as we
feel sure that a large number of
our readers will be highly interested in it We would particularly direct attention to the decision of the R.A. & I. Society to
provide cars to send the district
exhibits taking first and second
prizes this year to Manitoba and
the Northwest, paying transportation expenses of two men to
represent these districts and disseminate information.
This splendid offer ought to
prove the greatest incentive to
the people of Chilliwack to redouble their efforts to capture
first place again this year.
Nothing could better advertise
the attractions of this valley for
prospective settlers from the
Northwest than to have such a
display of our products as we
showed in New Westminster
last year, carried throughout the
prairie provinces. Like the
grapes of Eschoj^it would speak
more" eloquently of the resources
of this goodly land than any
words of praise.
To induce districts or agricultural societies in the different
portions of the province exhibiting, the directors, desiring to
assist the different localities in
advertising their agricultural capabilities, have endeavored to be
as liberal as possible with their
prizes, and trust the districts or
societies will take advantage of
these offers to use every endeavor to make creditable exhibits,
as they have done in the past.
The Society will provide cars
to send to Manitoba and the
Northwest, the district exhibits
taking first and second prize at
this year's exhibition, paying all
expenses of transportation for
two men representing each district, to disseminate information. This is done for the purpose of advertising what the
Province of British Columbia can
do in the way of agriculture and
horticulture, and should be
the means of the different districts of the Province making a
special effort to capture the first
and second place.
The management of the R. A.
& I. Society are of the opinion
that there is no better or more
economical manner in which to
make a collective exhibit illustrative of what the particular
localities of the Province can
produce, and trust the different
districts or agricultural societies
will assist them in their efforts.
For the best district or agricultural society exhibit of fruit,
grain, grasses, dairy products,
roots and vegetables; the products to be grown within the
districts  entering the  same for
First prize, $500 (carrying
Challenge Shield, presented by
Sir Thomas Dewar, with diplomas. ) This shield is in perpetuity, and will have engraved
each year the district ranking
first in this competition.
Second prize, $400, with gold
medal and diploma.
Third prize, $300, with silver
medal and diploma.
Fourth prize, $260, with
bronze medal and diploma.
To any District or Agricultural Society exhibiting in this
competition, east of North Bend,
or from Vancouver Island, $200,
and from West of North Bend,
on the Mainland, $160 will be
given toward the expenses of
collecting and making the exhibit, providing they have not
won a prize.

Re Sumat Dyking Scheme.
B. C. Electric Ry. Co.,
Vancouver, B. C.,
June 14th, 1907
B. Morgan, Esq.
Dear Sir,���I acknowledge receipt of your letter of 13th inst.
on the above subject. We are
quite prepared to quote the
Dyking Company an exceedingly
low rate, or practically cost, for
pumping the waters of Sumas
Lake. As soon as the Dyking
Company's representative will
call on us and give particulars
as to the amount of power and
the date when it will be required,
we will quote, our lowest price.
I would like to point out to you
that we consider that our proposed Electric Ry. will prove a
very great benefit not only to
the Dyking Co., but also to the
residents of Sumas generally,
and that this line will cost over
$2,000,000 to build and that for
several years it will be operated
at a heavy loss.
The proposed line, when built,
will increase the value of the
farm lands, and provide cheap
and rapid transportation for the
farm produce. It will more
than double the value of the
Dyking Company's land grant.
In other words, the proposed
Railway will.materially assist
the Dyking Co. in financing its
undertaking and also add generally to the prosperity of the
Sumas District.
Under these circumstances, it
would appear to me, the Company's offer to supply power
cheaply should be given due consideration.
I also wish to say that the
Dyking of Sumas Lake will have
a very important bearing on the
building of the proposed railway,
and the commencement of construction will depend to a large
extent on the commencement of
dyking operations.
In offering to supply you with
power practically at cost my object is to help the promotion of
the scheme in a general way,
but more particularly to lighten the cost of the work to the

Letter From Mrs. Templar.
Editor, The Fraser Advance-
Doubtless many of our Chilliwack friends will be pleased to
have a message from us after a
long silence. By us, I mean my
brother John, who is well known
to many in the valley, and myself. My brother joined me in
February and we have been
very busy in the north of Eng-
gland. I shall write of that
part of the country later. This
time I want to tell you of our
trip *'to Rome to attend the
World's Fifth S. S. Convention.
I was honored in again representing B. C.
We left Newcastle-on-Tyne on
May 11, by boat for London.
The sail down the North Sea and
up the Thames was very pleasant. We were met by Mr.
Branch, step-father of your esteemed fellow-citizen, Mr. H.
Readings. Two days and a half
were spent in sight-seeing. Of
course we did not see quite all
of the wonderful city, but lean
tell you that, thanks to Mr.
Branch, we lost no time and
were delighted with the result.
London Tower interested us,
perhaps, more than aught else.
Here has been enacted many
tragic scenes in England's history. We stood by the spot
where the beautiful head of
Lady Jane Grey rolled from the
block and where Anne Boleyn
suffered death at the behest of
her lord, Henry VIII. Here,
too, Scotlands's hero, William
Wallace, paid the penalty.
Burnished and beautifully arranged are the swords,  guns,

There can be little doubt in
the mind of anybody at all familiar with the conditions in this
valley that Chilliwack is destined pre-eminently to become a
community of homes. Our natural advantages of superb soil,
gentle climate and beautiful
scenery only need to be matched
with industry and enterprise in
order to make this a veritable
El Dorado to the home-seeker.
" The long felt want" of better
transportation facilities seems
now in a fair way to be met at
no distant date, and with the
incoming of an electric, and perchance a steam railway, we shall
doubtless experience a large accession to our population. There
are internal improvements which
must be made, however, if we
are to secure and retain the
most desirable elements to people
our valley. In saying this we
do not imply any reflection on
what we already possess, but desire to emphasize the fact that
an increasing population means
increasing requirements. What
served the community purposes
last year is quite inadequate to
the growing demands of this
year. If we are to seize our
day of opportunity we must recognize this fact and act accordingly. Those entrusted with
the adminstration of our public
affairs must devise ways and
means of improving our existing
roads, opening new ones, repairing and building bridges,
enlarging the capacity and increasing the efficiency of our
schools and otherwise providing
those public services which are
essential to the well-being of a
progressive community. Our
natural assets of soil, climate
and scenery must be supplemented by such improvements,
if we are to attract people of
culture and substance. It is
useless to say that our revenues
are insufficient to meet such demands. Of course they are. It
has always been so in a rapidly
growing community. But fortunately our credit is good and
wisdom would seem to dictate
the raising of a sufficient sum
to supply our pressing requirements. A loan of $10,000 or
$20,000 would not impose a heavy
burden on the Municipality and
if judiciously expended would
put our public utilities in a vastly better condition. Until this
is done we seem likely to suffer
both inconvenience and loss of
favour with the investing public.
Incidental reference is made
above to our public schools.
While the improvements which
have been made in these during
the past year are a matter of
congratulation, we must bear in
mind that the good work is only
begun. Especially is this true
respecting the High School,
which is the crowning institution
among the schools of the valley.
Thus far the work of this school
has been done by one teacher.
Fortunate as we are in the present incumbent, it is unreasonable to expect that one man can
long continue to do the work
usually requiring a staff of four
or five teachers. An assistant
should be supplied at once and a
full staff provided as soon as the
attendance will justify the outlay. If this were done pupils
who now go to the coast for
the more advanced work would
be retained here, and we would
draw others from neighboring
districts as well. Let us remember that a first-class, well
equipped high school is one of
the very best assets which Chilliwack can have, from whatever
view point it is estimated.
It was about the beginning of
the last century that the law establishing the present "ruleof
the road" that all carriages
must turn to the left came into
effect in England. We are told
that In order to remain mindful
of the new regulation, drivers
were in the habit of repeating
the simple quatrain given below.
In view of the confusion in this
matter, which results from the
cosmopolitan character of our
British Columbia population, we
would suggest the revival of the
rhyme in this province. Englishmen and Canadians, except
natives of Ontario, turn to the
left, while people from the
United States and from Ontario
instinctively keep to the right.
It is surprising that with the
consequent confusion more serious accidents do not arise from
this cause. This is the jingle
referred to above :
"The rule of the road is a paradox
In driving your carriage along,
If you go to the left,  you are sure to
go right ;
If you go to the right, you are wrong." I

open the programme. A junior
lacrosse Match at 1.45 p.m. will
be followed by various competitions up to 3.30 p.m., when the
senior lacrosse team and the
Chilliwack Indians will cross
sticks. This ought to be a fast
game and will no doubt be the
big drawing card of the day. A
relay foot race and atug-o'-war
will round out a full afternoon

will be there in their new uniforms, with their best music,

opening up a Real Estate Office in the
Irwin Block. Our object will not be to
conflict with the already established
real estate businesses here, but to secure our own line of customers through
co-operation with agents throughout
Canada and the Western States,
placing with these agents duplicates of
our lists. By this method we hope to
advance the general interests of this
district while conducting an honorable

Another respected citizen of
Chilliwack passed away last
Saturday night in the person of
Capt. John Purdy, of Cheam.
The deceased had been ailing for
some years and practically confined to his home for the past
ten months, so that the end was
not unexpected.
Capt John Purdy was born at
Sackyille, N. B., sixty-nine years
ago,- and was the son of the late
Henry Purdy, ship-builder of
that place. , He very early went
tones and secured, his-master's
pavers in 1869, taking charge
of his first vessel the "Seaman's
. Bride" in the same year. For
nearly thirty years he sailed
vessels from St. John, N. B.,
Liverpool, Eng., and Glasgow,
Scotland, to all parts of the
world, making for himself an
enviable record as a careful and
capable master. He first came
to this coast in the early eighties, bringing the barque " Roy-
croft," loaded with rails for the
C.P.R., around the Horn, and
landing at Port Moody, then the
terminus of the new trans-continental railway. In the winter
of 1888-9, Capt. Purdy came
west to remain, and took up his
residence in Vancouver. Since
that time until his forced retirement through ill-health last
summer, he has had charge of
the S. S. "Tepic," owned by
Evans, Coleman & Evans.
The deceased is survived by
his wife, three brothers and two
sisters. Capt R. Purdy of the
Pro vincial Jail New Westminster,
and Jas. Purdy, of Vancouver,
are brothers, while the third
brother and two sisters reside in
Sackville, N. B.
The funeral took place on
Tuesday morning at 10.30 o'clock from St Thomas' church,
the services being conducted by
the Rev. M. Jukes. A large
number of citizens followed the
remains to their resting place in
the Oddfellow's cemetery, betokening the high regard in
which the deceased was held.
Capt. R. Purdy, of Westminster,
and the Misses Effie and Dorcas
Johnson, neices from Sackville,
N. B., were among the mourners.      ;1 "'���

Re Sumas Dyking Scheme
To the Editor Fraser Advance.
The vote on Wednesday the
18th inst, at Upper Sumas, on
the question of obtaining a three-
fifth majority approval of the
diversion of the Vedder Creek
into the Luck-a-Kuck channel
was so close in numbers that it
may be unsatisfactory: but the
interest part of the vote had a
large majority. However, the
situation will be thoroughly con
sidered and investigated as to
future action as to the question
that was before the landowners
The report circulated by those
who are opposed to the scheme
that the vote of the 19th defeated it, is not true, for the
necessary three-fifth majority
for what is known as the lower
diversion was obtained on the
17th September, 1906, so that
the power for proceeding with
the construction work is secure.
There is a great deal of misunderstanding about this matter
in the public mind generally on
account of the active opposition
by those opposed to the enterprise, by ideas originating with
themselves, which could be employed by them to create fear
and alarm on the part of the
landowners, and some of these
ideas are in direct contradiction
of the interpretation given by
our Engineers and Solicitors.
The true state of this enterprise
as it is understood by the Commissioners from its inception to
the present time, I might be permitted to state briefly.
The promoting Company undertook to exploit the scheme if
they secured a free grant of
Sumas Lake bed and vacant
Crown lands, they to furnish all
the necessary capital for the preliminary work, this expense to
be recouped to them in the event
of the work proceeding, and if
the work did not proceed the
Company to stand all their own
expenses. In this event they
held all their plans, drawings,
maps, etc., but the District would
have to pay the expenses of its
engineers, solicitors and management. The Company agreed to
finance the whole of the construction cost by taking the
bonds of the District and guaranteeing par value for said bonds
to the landowners. The Company not agreeing to have their
lands contribute towards construction cost, for at this stage
it was thought the cost would be
about $300,000, the estimate of
Keefer and Smith in 1894. After
investigation by the Company's
engineers, involving several
month's labor the actual estimated cost was found to be
$650,000, over double what was
thought at first. This estimate
incluaed all the preliminary expenses, right of way and a certain sum to meet the expenses
of management to date of commencement, this estimate to
complete ai the necessary works
according u the plans, maps
and drawings prepared by Company.
The said Company find that
eighty cents (80c.) is the most
they can realize on these bonds,
therefore they will have to put
up the balance of twenty cents
on the dollar to make par value
for the bonds in cash or something equal to cash if the Company cannot do business with the
When the estimate was found
to be much more than was anticipated the Commissioners declined to proceed to levy this
amount against the land owners,
as the District could not carry
the burden. So then the Company decided to place other lands,
including lake bed, in the assessment to help carry the cost on
the same basis as the other
lands, when it was found out
several months ago that the consent of the Federal Government
would be necessary as security
to the bondholders and until
such time as this matter can be
adjusted so that rates can be
collected, the Commissioners
will not start the work nor issue
the bonds.
So you can see, Mr. Editor,
that the Company will have to
contribute a large share of construction cost. In the first place
the discount of the bonds on
$650,000 would be $130,000, at
20c. discount. The Lake, containing about 9,500 acres at $21,
the assessed charge $199,500:
1500 acres outside lake bed at
$26 per acre $39,000, making a
total $368,500. The Company's
land contributing to construction
cost the sum $238,50. If the
Dyking district issued bonds at
80c to cover the estimate the
issue would require to be over
The Company state that they
are willing to enter into a contract to construct and complete all
the works according to the
plans, drawings, etc. for their
estimated cost of construction
and will place in the hands of
the Commissioners substantial
security that they will coomplete
the work within a reasonable
date to the entire satisfaction of
our Engineers.

Physically Exhausted.
Lacking in courage���out of joint with
everything-scarcely on speaking terms
with even fair health. Such low spirits
are pitiable. Your brain is fagged, vitality so exhausted your constitution is
well nigh ruined. What you need is
Ferrozone, the great vitahzer and nutritive tonic. It's by making flesh and
blood, by infusing iron and oxygen into
the system that Ferrozone helps; it repairs weak spots, instills new life into
worn out organs���makes you feel like
new. Ferrozone lifts age from the o[d

the depressed. Be manly, ruddy colored, cast aside weakness and enter the
happy life that comes from using Ferrozone. Fifty cents buys a box in any

In a strong room in the tower

Cathedral and Westminster Abbey. We spent some hours
within the walls of the latter
reading from tablets and engraven on stone many names
I familiar to us in history, names
' of kings, heroes, writers, poets,
iinventors, etc., until the whole
i seemed to pass in procession
1 before us, a mighty host.
We had the good fortune to
gain admission to the House
while in session, and for an
hour listened to Austin Chamberlain discussing the vexed

The most important uses of
fire were taught by fire itself.
As the primitive man stood near
the flames of the burning tree
and felt their pleasant glow, he
learnt that fire may add to bodily
comfort; and when the flames
swept through a forest and overtook a deer and baked it, he
learnt that fire might be used to
improve the quality of his food.
The hint was not lost. He took
a burning torch to his cave or
hut and kindled him a fire on his
floor of earth. His dwelling
filled with smoke, but he could
endure the discomfort for the
sake of the fire's warmth and
for the sake of the toothsome-
ness of the cooked meats. After
a time a hole was made in the
roof of the hut, and through
this hole the smoke passed out.
Here was the first stove. The
primitive stove was the entire
house; the floor was the fireplace and the hoie in' the roof
was the chimney. The ��ord
"stove" originally meant "a
heated room.' So that if we
should say that at first people
lived in their stoves we would
say that which is literally true.

i The Advance was favored with a call
. from J. A. Haggard of Upper Sumas,
; on Saturday last Mr. Huggard and
' his wife availed themselves of the fine
| weather and good roads for the pleasure of the 2"i-mile drive for the purpose of taking home their daughter and
Miss Fadden who had been trying the
High School entrance examinations
here. The party returned the following day. Mr. Huggard is greatly interested in the Sumas Dyking Scheme,
having personally circulated the petition which was presented to the Commissioners at the meeting on the 19th
inst. This petition, Mr. Huggard said,
was not designed to defeat the scheme,
but was a protest against further proceedings until a satisfactory agreement should be reached between the
Company and the people as to the
mode of payment of the people's assessment of the lake lands. The protest bore about 90 signatures, besides
individual protests to the same effect,
which were handed in. Mr. Huggard
thinks that if these matters were satisfactorily adjusted the enterprise
would havo practically the unanimous
support of the property owners of
Upper Sumas.
Seventeen candidates from Prin.
Calvert's room took the High School
entrance examinations last week and
thirteen from outside points. Of these
latter four were from Upper Sumas.
The results of these examinations will
likely be announced about the end of
July. Considering the conscientious
and painstaking work done by the Principal of the Central school during the
past year, it is expected that a large
number of those who prepared under
his tuition will be successful. That
his work has been appreciated by the
pupils themselves was shown by their
presentation to him of ��� valuable dressing case last Saturday evening.
A very pleasant family gathering

60th anniversary of their marriage.
Those present were Mr. and Mrs. T.
H. Henderson and family, Samuel
Henderson, Dr. J. C. Henderson, wife
and family, Mrs, Vradenburg and
family, Mrs. Samuel Thompson and
family of Ladner, and Arthur Henderson. A very pleasant afternoon was

served on the lawn. The happy company dispersed at an early hour, wishing their honored and beloved hosts
very many joyous returns of their

The efforts of the ladies of the Baptist Church were supplemented by fine
weather and a large crowd last Tuesday evening on the grounds of J. L.
Denholm, Fairfield Island, the whole
making a combination necessary to*
successful garden party. The grounds
were attractively decorated and no
pains were spared to give everybody a
good time. Pleasant music was discoursed by the band boys, who appeared for the first time in their natty
new uniforms. A programme of music
and recitations and tasty refreshments
added to the attractions of the occasion. The novel feature of the evening,
however, was the gasoline launch on
the Slough, which was gaily decorated
with Chinese lanterns and afforded
pleasure to those of aquatic tastes,
Over all the man in the moon smiled
his broadest smile upon the gay com'
pany, and saw everybody safely home.
Over $80 was realized by the ladies.
June Wedding Bells
St. Thomas' Church was the scene of
a very interesting event last Wednesday, it being the occasion of the marriage of Mr. C. L. Royds and Miss C.
H. Stiff. The ceremony was performed in the presence of a large congregation by the Rector Rev. Mark Jukes.
The groom was supported by Mr.
Jack Henderson and Miss Florence
Royds made a charming bridesmaid.
The bride wore her going away costume of champagne colored crepe de
chene over pink taffeta and a hat of
the same color trimmed with pink
The bridesmaid's dress was cream
organdie with lace trimming.
Mr. E. H. Barton had the honor of
giving away the bride and Mr. carl
Grossman officiated at the organ.
After the usual deluge of rice,
bootees and gum boots, the contracting
parties and their immediate relatives
spent a few hours at the residence of
Capt. C Royds, where a dainty luncheon was served.
The happy couple left on the evening
train for a short trip to the coast, after
which they will take up their residence
in Chilliwack. The Advance follows
