Humphrey Jones, a native of
Wales, lives alone in a shack in
New Westminster, and although
ill refuses to be moved to a hospital. He has quite a sum of
money laid by and therefore
must be allowed to do as he
wishes. He is seventy-five
years of age, forty-five of which
have been spent in New Westminster, and during the last
fifteen years he has never been
down town.
The New Methodist Pastor
olven A Cordial Reception.
The Oddfellow's Hall was the
scene of a very pleasant social
gathering of the members of the
Methodist Church and congregation on Wednesday evening;
for the purpose of extending a
welcome to their new pastor,
Rev. E. Manuel and his wife.
The hall had been given a very
cheery and homelike appearance
by the ladies, and an atmosphere
of sociality and good-will seemed
to put everybody readily at ease.
The company was quite as large
as the hall could comfortably accommodate and was well representative of the congregation to
which Mr. Manuel will minister.
The early part of the evening
passed very pleasantly in social
intercourse, after which toothsome refreshments were served
by the ladies. When this part
of th eprogramme had been agreeably completed, J. Howe Bent
assumed the chair and called up
Rev. D. A. Storey of Sumas as
the first speaker. Mr. Storey
warmly welcomed Mr. Manuel to
his new field of labor and appealed strongly to the people for
their hearty sympathy and earnest co-operation, emphasizing
the absolute necessity of these
in order to insure success. His
remarks were warmly endorsed
by those present.
Joseph Ogle of Sardis was fuITy
in accord with all that had been
said by the previous speaker and
expressed the hope that the coming year would be the best in the
history of the church.
The chairman felt prompted to
do what he seldom did, viz.:���to
speak a few words himself. It
is of vital importance that the
minister should have the united
support of the membership and
congregation. He felt that for
some reason or other Methodists
were remiss in this regard as
compared with other denominations, and hoped that special
care would be exercised in the
future to overcome this defect in
the church's work. With cordial
words of welcome he called upon
the new pastor.
Hearty applause greeted Mr.
Manuel as he stepped to the
platform. He thanked the
friends present for the cordial
manner in which they had welcomed him and assured them
that he already felt quite at
home. He had been in Chilliwack before and did not feel
himself among strangers. Previous to going to Grand Forks
three years ago, he had labored
thirteen years on the Coast and
this seemed like getting back
home, notwithstanding the
breaking of very pleasant associations in the interior. He hoped
that the most cordial relations
might be established and maintained between himself and the
people.   It would be necessary
for them to get close to each
other and he urged the people to
do their part as he had no doubt
they would. He would try to be
frank with them and requested
that they should be the same
with him. He would see them
as often as possible in their
homes, but asked not to be
judged by the number of doorbells he might ring, but rather
by the impetus which he might,
with God's help, be able to give
to the work of the church. He
was optimistic regarding their
future relations and work together, and pledged himself to
do his part to the best of his
After the singing of " God be
with you till we meet again,"
the large company dispersed to
their several homes.
Mr. Manuel arrived in Chilliwack last Friday from the interior with his wife and family
of six children, and has taken up
his residence at the parsonage.
He preached both here and at
Carman church on Sunday to
large audiences, which were
highly pleased with his discourses. At a largely attended farewell meeting on Monday evening
of last week at Grand Forks,
representative members of his
congregation arid brother pastors of other churches spoke in
the most appreciative terms of
his character and work. Nor
were tangible expressions of this
appreciation lacking. The Ladies'
Aid presented Mrs. Manuel with
a valuable clock and the Quarterly Board handed Mr. Manual
a purse of $100.
With the hearty support and
co-operation of a united church,
and the inspiration of a good
record for usefulness behind
them, the new pastor and his
wife face a promising future
and will no doubt give a good account of shemselves.
" The question of keeping
the children fairly presentable
during their play hours is always doubly difficult in the
summer. Half an hour's romping in the garden will soil and
rumple any frock, until it is only
fit for the tub, so all sensible
mothers devote a large share of
the summer's outfit to strong,
easily ironed dresses in which
their little ones can play in
peace,'' Thus says the authority
on " Practical Clothes for Little
Girls " in the July number of
the New Idea Woman's Magazine, and common sense is the
keynote of her article. The same
writer extends her helpful advice to the summer girl with
athletic tendencies, and appropriate suggestions are given for
costumes adapted to any of her
varied activities. Read these
articles before undertaking the
preparations for your summer
outing, and you will find your
task much simplified.

Mr. and Mrs. A. C. Henderson Will
Celebrate their Sixtieth Wedding Anniversary, Monday
It is not often that we are
privileged to offor congratula-
lations to those who have shared
sixty years of married life, but
this rare pleasure is ours this
week. On Monday next, June
17th, Mr. and Mrs. A. C. Hen.
derson of this place will celebrate
the sixtieth anniversary of their
union as husband and wife. In
addition to having been married longer than any other
couple in Chilliwack, Mr. and
Mrs. Henderson are the oldest
in years and among the oldest
residents of the place. Both are
well past the four score mark,
the former having been born in
Donegal Co., Ireland, in 1825,
and the latter in Tyrone Co., in
1823. Their vigorous mental and
physical condition, however,
scarcely accords with the Psalmist's characterization of the
strength of fourscore years. A
few such cases in his day would
doubtless have led him to modify
his statement somewhat. But
then Palestine wasn't Chilliwack.
Mrs. Henderson, whose maiden name was Rebecca Hunter,
came to New York in company
with her parents when only ten
years of age, while the lad who
was subsequently to be her husband landed in the same city at
the age of nineteen. Although
they had known of each other in
the old country, the meeting
which resulted in their marriage
took place on American soil. Immediately after their marriage
they lived for four years in Milwaukee, when that city was only
a village and before it had become famous for its beer. Returning to New York for a few
years they again sought the west
in 1857, and located in Kansas
Territory, which was then the
western frontier. Here they
passed through the border troubles which preceded the war,
when the question was whether
the state should be a free state
or a slave state. In 1875 Mr.
Henderson came to SanFrancisco
in search of health and thencs
to Victoria, subsequently finding
his way to Chilliwack. The climate so benefitted his health that
he sent for his family the following year, and has resided here
continuously ever since. At that
time the present townsite was a
heavy forest and there were not
more than half a dozen white
families in the entire valley.
Mr. Henderson's life has been
closely identified with that of
the Presbyterian Church of this
place. He gave the ten acres of
land upon which the church edifice and manse stand, and was
the first and largest contributor
to the erection of both buildings.
From its organization to the
present time he has held the
office of elder and was for many
years treasurer as well. By a
strange co-incidence, the first
pastor, Rev. Mr. Patterson came
to Chilliwack on June 17th and
the church was dedicated on the
same day of the month just one
year later, so that next Monda/
will also be the Church's anni.
Mr. and Mrs. Henderson have
had seven children, three of
whom are still living, J. Hunter, and John C, of Chilliwack,
and Mrs. J. B. Henderson of
Grand Forks.
Seen in their own home a few
days ago this aged couple presented a most refreshing picture of well preserved old age.
Strong constitutions and correct
habits of life have combined to
lighten the weight of years to a
wonderful degree and their physical vigor and mental alertness
is alike remarkable. One secret
of their well preserved condition
without doubt is the lively interest which they continue to
take in all that goes on in the
world about them. They are
both great readers and keep well
informed upon current events.
Although 84 years of age, Mrs.
Henderson has never worn glasses and can see to read or sew
as well as ever she could. She
daily shares the duties of the
home. Mr. Henderson insists
that he is as well as ever he was,
and feels quite equal to a trip
home to Ireland this summer if
the membess of his family will
only consent.
The Advance joins with a host
of others in offering congratulations to Mr. and Mrs. Henderson and trusts that they may yet
enjoy very many happy years
A serious collision between a
passenger car and a shunter occurred on the Lulu Island branch
of the B.C.E. Ry. last Wednesday afternoon by which one man,
Wm.McColl of Vancouver, lost
his life and a score of others
were injured. The accident was
due to the conductor and motor-
man of the passenger car overrunning their crossing orders.
The injured are likely to recover
except one man whose skull is
fractured. The case is being investigated both by the Ry. Company and the authorities.
We are pleased to inform our
readers that the latest reports respecting W. T. Jackman are to
the effect that he is steadily improving and if all goes well hopes
to be able to leave the hospital
within the next ten days or fortnight.
It is expected that the poultry
exhibit will be continued this
year in New Westminster. On
account of the poor showing during the last few years it was decided to discontinue this feature
The Board of Management have,
however, reconsidered the matter. Arrrngements are also being
made for a dog show in
connection with the annual
Provincial Exhibition. THE FRASER ADVANCE, CHILLIWACK, B. C, SATURDAY, JUNE 15, 1007.

Thatllacrosse has been established and given a firm foothold among the sport-loving
people of our city was manifested by the enthusiasm shown in
the game that took place between the Seniors of the town and
the "boys" from the Landing,
on Friday evening last.
This was undoubtedly the
fastest and best game ever
played on these grounds, from
the face-off, shortly after 7
o'clock, until the end of the
game, no time being lost by the
players on either side. The ball
was kept hot travelling from one
end of the field to the other and
the game ended by a score of 3
all This is the first game in
which our defence were given
anything to do and they were
given all the work-out that they
wanted by the fast home of the
Indian team, and but for the
clever work of "Pinchy" Reed
in goal, the score would have
read much larger upon the Indians' side of the score card.
"Pinchy," though with very
little practice, from the first has
shown that his place is between
the flags, and before the season
is out will be able to stop anything short of a rifle ball. To
single out any players who excelled in this match would be unfair, as the team worked like
Trojans and in unison. The
combination work of the Indian
team is clean and pretty, much
better throughout than that of
the town boys, who could profit
somewhat by practicing catching
and passing. Could they get
over the habit of rushing by one
or more before passing the ball,
a decided improvement would be
made, but these all come in time,
for when we consider the short
[ existence of the Club, we mar-
|vel that they can put up the
| game they do, but then Chilli
wack has the material and why
should they not play the game
they have always played.
With the amalgamation of the
Chilliwack and Indian clubs of
this valley,    a team   could be
picked out that would rank with
the fast    senior   teams of the
i coast cities.
i   Gus Stevedore and Ed. Mussel
i of the Indian team, along with
I the fast men on the Chilliwack
| team, would make the best com
bination hustle  to keep out of
their way.    Ed. Johnston makes
a very efficient referee and keeps
his men well under control, and
very few  have to be penalized
while he has charge.
These games with the "boys"
from the Landing we understand
are to be kept up during the
summer, and every encourage
ment should be given the games
by a good attendance at them.
The howling, bawling, rooting
mob can be dispensed with, for
none of this has a tendency to
give Canada's national sport the
place it deserves.���Com.

Making Up
Our fool treatment of Canada
is another illustration of what
our legislators can accomplish.
The Dominion has now made up
her mind to treat us to as harsh
laws os can be devised, and her
decision is wise and right. For
a quarter of a century she has
waited patiently, while one President after another, and one
Secretary of State after another,
devised treaties intended for the
mutual benefit of Canada and
the United States. Every time
the Senate, imagining itself to
exist for sequestering benefits
desired by the well-intrenched,
has protected its clients against
the Administration and the people. Calmly, at length, Canadian leaders have seen that no
fair measure of reciprocity could
ever pass the Senate, andjshe
has decided to do all in her
power to stop trade with us, to
develop it with England and her
other colonies; to favor all Europe against the United States,
to develop her own incalculable
resources. We wish her well.
Whatever harm our ass policy
brings to us has been fully and
painstakingly devised.���Collier's.

Care ot Work Horses
Many persons after driving
their teams in the slush and mud
think if they dash a few pails of
water over the horses' limbs upon
returning they have left the poor
brutes in the best possible condition until morning. The fact
is it would be far better to turn
the animals into the stable and
leave them, mud and all, until
their legs are fully dry. There
would be less danger of scratches,
mud fevers and grease heels
than by the plan of washing, If
the legs are washed they should
be rubbed quite dry, which is no
easy task. If left partially dry
the most serious consequences
are likely to follow. When a
team is left with the hair partially dry a chill is sure to ensue.
It is not unlikely the animals,
especially if exhausted, will be
found the next morning stiff,
with the limbs swollen, since the
exhaustion of the system prevents healthy reaction at the
swollen extremities.���Agricultural Epitomist.

To Kill Caterpillars
A gentleman who says he has
used the remedy himself on many
occasions and has applied it with
great success this year, gives a
simple [prescription for the destruction of the caterpillars now
infesting the orchards. He says
that the application of coal oil to
the nests destroys the caterpillars
and that the slightest applica
tion is effective. The oil may be
dropped from a spoon or from
the spout of a can, or even spray
ed from a bulb syringe or other
common instrument. This remedy is said to be quite as effective
as fire, while doing no harm to
the trees ; and the information
no doubt will be gratefully received by many who see their
trees being denuded by these
pests who are more numerous
this year than they have been
for many seasons.���Exchange.
Brown Tall Moth
The brown tail moth has made
iu! appearance in large numbers
I in southern and western counties
of Nova Scotia.   A convention
its i
of representatives of the Fruit
Growers' Associations and Farmers' Exchanges was held last
Friday at Annapolis for the purpose of discussing ways and
means for the repression of this
dreaded pest. The Nova Scotia
Government has offered a bounty
of three cents each for the caterpillar nests and the school children are industriously at (work
gathering them. Already over
2,000 have been turned in, and
every effort is being made to
prevent the further spread of a
pest which has wrought such
havoc among the orchards of the
New England States, and upon
which millions have been spent
in attempts to eradicate it.
For A' That
Mr. Andrew Carnegie has received from a workingman in
Scotland a bit of rhyme that
must give him food for meditation. The first verse runs as
follows :
We're puir bit craiturs, Andra, you an'
Ye hae a bath in marble tub, I dook in
the sea.
Cafe au lait in a silver joog for breakfast gangs to you;
I sup my brose wi' a horn spuin an' eat
till I'm fu'
An' (there's nae great differ, Andra,
hardly ony,
My sky is as clear as yours, an' the
clouds as bonnie ;
I whussle a tune thro' my teeth to mysel'
That costs nae money
The workingman has been making comparisons, just as many
another has done. He has looked
at " Andra" frankly and without bias. He has none of the
Carnegie millions, but he has
some things that all the millions
in the world could not buy,
Above all other things, it is clear
that the humble versifier has not
had his vision dulled by envy.���
Found It
A nervous looking man went
into a store the other day and
sat down for half an hour or so,
when the clerk asked him if
there was anything she could do
for him. He said no, he didn't
want anything. She went away
and he sat an hour longer, when
the proprietor went to him and
asked if he wanted to be shown
anything. "No," said the nervous man, " I just wanted to
sit around. My physician has
recommended quiet for me, and
says above all things I should
avoid being in a crowd. Noticing
that you do not advertise in the
newspaper, I thought that this
would be as quiet a place as I
could find, so I just dropped in
for a few hours of isolation.''

Purgatives are Dangerous
They gripe, cause burning pains and
make the constipated condition even
worse. Physicians say the ideal laxative is Dr. Hamilton's Pills of Mandrake and Butternut: they are exceedingly mild, composed only of health-
giving vegetable extracts. Dr. Hamilton's Pills restore regular movement
of the bowels, strengthen the stomach
and purify the blood. For constipation,
sick headache, biliousness and disordered digestion no medicine on earth
makes such remarkable cures as Dr.
Hamilton's Pills. Try a 26c box yourself.

J. BURTT MORGAN, ��� Editor and Proprietor
It appears that our incidental
reference to the McKenzie damage suit last week in these columns contained a mis-statement
of the facts. This we very much
regret and cheerfully hasten to
make the necessary correction,
in order that our readers may not
continue to share our misapprehension of the case. In speaking as we did we were acting
upon the best information at
hand, and are very sorry if anybody has been misled by our
From the reports which had
reached us through the daily
papers and otherwise, we
had been given to understand
that so far as the trial court was
concerned the matter at issue
had been decided by the rendering of a verdict of $7,000 and
costs for the plaintiffs. As we
are now informed, it appears that
the presiding Judge expressed
his opinion that the evidence did
not show that the Municipality
was negligent and therefore
could not reasonably be held responsible, but at the solicitation
of the Counsel for the prosecution and with the consent of the
Counsel for the defence, he allowed the matter to go to the
jury so that should the Court of
Appeal differ from the opinion of
the trial judge, there would be a
verdict on which they could act
without the necessity of a new
trial. This was done on the
conceded reservation by the de
fence of the right to move for a
non-suit. The argument of this
non-suit has not yet been heard,
the defence of the Municipality
not yet revealed and therefore
no decision reached. To laymen, unversed in the intricacies
of the law, this seems amazingly
like getting the cart before the
horse. Unsophisticated, simple-
minded folk like ourselves are
wont to assume that the vedict
by a jury determines the matter
so far as that particular court is
concerned, and we may
fairly be pardoned for acting in
line with the usual assumption
in this particular case. Since
we were evidently wrong, however, we take it all back [and
offer a blanket apology to all concerned for meddling with a matter which is apparently still sub
judice. 1
In conclusion we should like to
call our readers' attention to the
fact that we expressed no opinions of our own as to the Municipality's neglect or liability in
the case in question. Our remarks were based solely upon
tho supposed decision of the
cuurt, and the case was cited
incidentally to point our main
contention that greater care
should be exercised in various
directions in order to safe-guard
the Corporation from liability to
legal action. Whatever may be
the Court's decision in the present matter, we maintain that
our principal argument still
If Chilliwack is to retain the
premier place among the exhibit
ing districts at New Westminster and Victoria this year, it is
high time that all who are an*
ious to witness this achievment
should be alert to contribute to
the desired end. We need not
remind our readers that the
Massey-Harris Cup and the Dew>
ar Challenge Shield are now in
our possession. The former has
been won two years by the Chilliwack district and only requires
to be secured a third time in
order to become a permanent
possession. The Dewar Shield
was held in 1905 by Langley and
came to Chilliwack in 1906. In
both cases the competition will
be keen, and if Chilliwack is to
win no effort must be spared.
The gathering of exhibits is
again in the hands of Geo. I.
Thornton, and we bespeak for
him the aid and co-operation of
everybody who may produce anything worthy of a place in his
collection. The undertaking is
necessarily an increasing one
every year as the country advances, and it is only by cooperation that a just and creditable showing can be made. The
agricultural and horticultural
production of the whole Province should this year be greatly
in advance of that of any previous year, and all the fall fairs
should be proportionately better.
If Chilliwack does not again
stand foremost in the competition, it will be because somebody blunders.
We have been making an effort
for several months past to get
our subscription list on a strictly
advance basis, and have made
some progress in that direction.
But we are a long way from the
goal as yet. This is a small matter to each individual subscriber,
yet it means much to us in the
aggregate. We want to have
every label showing an advance
date by July 1st, and as a re-1
minder of his standing on our
books, are sending statements to
all who are in arrears. Will you
not give this matter your immediate attention, thus helping
us and profiting yourself. Until
arrears are paid the old rate of
$1.50 per year holds, the $1.00
rate being only for strictly advance subscribers. We would
like after July 1st to strictly enforce the rule of sending our
paper only to those who pay in
advance, assuming  that   those
who wish it continued will really
pay the small sum of $1.00 to
have its weekly visits for a year.
Will you not help us to hasten the
inauguration of this the only
satisfactory system. Do it today.      	
The Haywood Trial at Boise,
Idaho, is receiving even a larger
amount of attention by the press
of the continent than did the
famous Thaw trial of a few
months ago. During the past
week most intense interest has
centred in the evidence of Harry
Orchard, the self-confessed murderer of Governor Steunenberg
and the perpetrator of unnumbered other crimes. In fact, if
his story is to be credited, he
easily takes rank as the greatest
criminal of modern times. The
great question, however, as to
who are the real criminals, the
officials of the Western Federation or the Mine owners, is not
being lost sight of, and about
that the battle royal between
opposing counsel will likely continue to the end. As yet it is not
easy to say with whom the odds
rest. The deplorable feature of
the situation is that under our
present judicial system there
seems to be no escape from the
hardening and degrading influence of familiarity with such
tales of heinous brutality. There
can be no doubt that such evidence as that of Harry Orchard
sows wide the seeds of crime by
the law of suggestion and at the
same time dulls the moral sense
of the whole community.

A " Victory" Shield For Every
School In Canada From
Historic Battleship.
We are just in receipt of a
communication from Edward W.
Matthews, Secretary of the
British and Foreign Sailor's
Society, London, Eng., dated
Empire day, in which he makes
the announcement that through
the generosity of Lord Strath-
cona, a shield made from copper
taken from Lord Nelson's battleship " Victory," will be provided
for every school in Canada.
Lord Strathcona's gift for this
purpose is ��1,000. The following
portions of Mr. Matthew's letter
will be of interest, not only to
all teachers and scholars, but to
everyone desirous of promoting
loyalty to the Empire among the
children of our land :
" The Society has undertaken
a big thing for a big country.
But I feel confident that as heretofore, the Government will
admit the Shield and Souvenirs
duty free, and that the ministers
of education and various educa-
cational authorities and teachers
will co-operate with us to ensure
the successful carrying out of
this project. The Society has
already spent several thousand
pounds in its educational, patriotic, and philanthropic work in
connection with its Nelson Centenary and Anniversary Celebrations. In addition to the
copper given ,.to the Society by
the Lords of the Admiralty,
taken from Admiral Lord Nelson's famous battleship 'Victory,'
all the copper left from Nelson's
other historic flagship, ' Foud-
royant,'' was secured to be used
for the above purposes.
The sacred promise made to
the Admiralty when the material
was given was, that any financial
outcome should go forthe benefit
of seamen. In carrying out,
therefore, by the kind assistance
of (Lord Strathcona, this great
project in Canada, we are anxious that every school, however
small in numbers, however far
from the frontier, should have
its "Victory " Shield. But at
the same time we would like to
receive even from the smallest
school not less than one dollar
for the Society's work among
seamen. And every boy or girl
giving or collecting only 25 cents
will receive a 'victory" Charm
made from the same copper.
The Society, in addition to
caring for seamen in many ports
of the world, when away from

asked to examine the arguments and to have our findings
appear in the press. We are
briefly acceding to  the request.
Our first attention is directed
to the quotation, "Sec. 17 of the
Dyking Act distinctly states that
there cannot be any assessment
registered against Crown lands,
etc.." The said Act being before us we cannot discover the
words quoted, nor Section 17 in
said Act, for there are only nine
sections in the whole Act, and
the following session of the Legislature in 1898, three sections
were repealed, namely, 4, 7, 9.
Of six now remaining none gives
the words mentioned. So much
for this question.
Another statement, "The 1899
Amendment Act makes each
separate parcel of land assessed
responsible forthe cost of the
whole construction, etc." We
find that this Amendment Act is
an amendment to the Public Dyking Act, 1898, and the clause is
there all right, but it has no application whatever to Sumas
District. It strictly applies to
those Dyking Districts taken
over by the Provincial Government, including Chilliwack in the
said Act of 1898, and is entirely
under the control and management of the. Inspector of Dykes,

and had taken her out to show
her how well he could handle a
boat, putting her   to tend   the
sheet.   A puff of wind came, and
he shouted in no uncertain tone,
"Let go the sheet ! "   No re

that sheet, quick I "    Still no
movement. A few minutes after,
when both were clinging to the
bottom of the overturned boat,
he said, "Why didn't you let go
that sheet when I told you to>
dear ? " "I would have," said
the bride, "If you had not been
so rough about it.   You ought to
speak more kindly to your wife."

Mr. Merchant.
Now that the summer season
is fairly upon us, we picture ourselves engaged in the various
picnic operations attendant to all
nature loving souls like ourselves
living in one of the most beautiful spots that this fair land of
Canada provides, and we long for
the opportunity to forget our
business trials and worries and
revel in and admire the beauties
of this delightful valley in which
it is our good fortune to live.
Many and varied are the
pleasure spots offered, each with
some distinctive interest. Cultus
Lake with its broad stretch of
placid water hidden away
amongst the snow-capped mountains where the hand of man has
not as yet destroyed the beauties
of God's creation, where the
green foliage comes down from
the mighty slopes to the edge of
the lake and appear to bury
themselves in its fathomless
depths. To row around this
beauty spot and to gather the
many varieties of wild flowers,
and to examine its many streams
which can only be discovered by
listening for their voices, and to
explore its mighty buttresses of
rock reaching high above us, is
to forget our troubles and to
forgive our enemies.
Nor is Cultus Lake the only
place within an hour's reach of
Chilliwack's favored residents,
for close by runs the beautiful
river Vedder with its numberless attractions. Here the ardent
angler may pit his skill against
the wiles of the speckled beauties
that lie hidden, in its rocky
depths. Following down this
wonderland we reach Sumas
Lake, another of those soul inspiring bodies of water with
which our valley abounds.
Closer to town we have some
of the most beautiful waterways
that could be wished for. Our
sloughs are many and reach for
miles, where dainty boats and
many voices provide a scene that
forces on us the fact that life is
indeed worth living.
Of these sloughs perhaps at
the present time Hope Slough
seems to have more attention
than its fellows. Not that it
contains any more beauties than
the others, but on account of <ts
proximity to the town,   where
the busy man may take a daily
rest from the cares of chasing
the almighty dollar, and in a few
minutes' walk be in reach of the
"chut" "chut" of the motor
boat, the splash of the oar and
dip of the paddler, all mingled
with the voices of the voyageurs
who in song give vent to their
feelings as their craft slowly
glides past verdant fields and
I beautiful homesteads, with here
! and there a settler tending his
kine, whose glossy coats and
plump bodies prove that our land
is even more than a mere pleasure ground.!
And so in the shades of even-
ing we head our barque far home
and leave the farmer with his
beaming smile that bespeaks his
satisfaction, and ere we lay down
to rest ourselves we have tacked
another $100 on to every acre we
own, lest in some unguarded
moment we be persuaded to separate ourselves from these
glories which no other land can

treating the result of your ailment, and
