of the boldest and most brilliant

between China and Japan, and
when the war broke out between
Japan and Russia he was appointed commander of the first
army, and the series of successes
which followed his defeat of the
Russians in the batttle of Yalu
are familiar history.
Beaton-Caesar.
A very happy event took place on
Thursday, In St. Thomas' Church, when
John Beaton, merchant of Kamloops,
B. ft, led to the altar Miss Edith E.
Cajsar, second daughter of John Csssar,
Markdale, Ont. Precisely at 12 o'clock
noon the bride entered the church leaning on the arm of her uncle, W. T.

Chorus from "Lohengrin," played by
Carl Grossman. Miss Gertrude Caesar
assisted the bride while Mr. Jas. Beaton
of Vancouver supported the groom.
Mies Dorrie Grossman made a sweet
little flower girl.

costume over cream chiffon and taffetta
���ilk with rose point lace trimmings and
the customary veil and orange blossoms.
She carried a large bouquet of cream
rosea and maiden hair fern. The

of white messaline silk with lace trimmings. The bridesmaid's bouquet was
also cream roses and maidenhair fern,
while little Mies Grossman wore a
wreath and carried a basket of pink
carnations.

knot before a large congregation. After
the ceremony the bridal party drove to

sumptuous and dainty wedding breakfast was served. After a couple of
hours spent very pleasantly, the bridal
party left amid showers of rice and
good wishes for Harrison Hot Springs
where the honeymoon will be spent.
The bride's travelling suit was of mulberry broadcloth with silk waist and
hat to match. The bride was the recipient of a large number of useful and
ornamental presents. The groom's
present to the bride was a handsome
Mason & Risen piano, to the bridesmaid
a sunburst of pearls, to the flower girl
a gold bracelet and to the groomsman
a gold locket.
The Advance extends congratulations
and wish Mr. and Mrs. Beaton a pleasant voyage over the sea of life.
Henderson-Pavey
An event of much interest to Chilli-
wackers, because of the popularity of
the contracting parties,- transpired on
Saturday, March 30th, at "Hawthorne
Lodge," the magnificent home of Mr.
John McClary, London, Ontario, the
bride's uncle, when R. A. Hender-
son, C.E., eon of J. C. Henderson of
this place, and Miss M. D. Pavey,
daughter of Edwin Pavey of St Thomas. Ont, and lister to Mrs. M. H. Nelems and Miss E. Pavey of this place,
were united in the bonds of matrimony.
Mr. Henderson, better and popularly
known in Chilliwack as "Arthur," has
for some two years past been Chief
Engineer for the Kettle River Valley
Railway Co. with headquarters at Grand
Forks, and at this point Mr. and Mrs.
Henderson will reside, having already
taken up their abode at the Hotel Yale
of that city.
Mrs. Henderson became well and
favorably known to a large number of
people in Chilliwack some few years ago
when she spent several weeks visiting
at the home of Mr. and Mrs. Nelems.
We would like to shake your hand,
"Art," but you are too far away; so
here's to you and Mrs. Henderson with
the sincere best wishes of your host of
I hilliwack friends.
Mcullllvray-Toop.
A quiet wedding took place at the
Methodist Parsonage at an early hour
last Friday morning when William H.
McGillivray, son of D. McGillivray, of
Chilliwack, was united for life to Miss
Alathea L. Toop of Sumas The ceremony was performed by Rev. R. F.
Stillman at 5:45 a m. in order to permit
the happy pair to take the boat for
Westminster. After a few days at the
coast cities, Mr. and Mrs. McGillivray
will visit the interior of the province,
returning later to take up their residence at Sumas. The Advance wishes
them the best of good fortune and many
happy years together.
Upon the assembling of the
Legislature on Thursday, Speaker Eberts decided that Mr. Henderson's point of order against
the University bill was not well
taken and the bill was in order.
Mr. Williams'fortnightly wage
bill was killed in committee on
motion of Mr. Price Ellison, by a
vote of 19 to 14.
Mr. Macdonald's amendment
to the Workmen's Compensation
Act to give arbitrators power to
pay compensation in a lump sum,
was defeated on second reading.
Mr. Bowser's anti-Hindu Election Bill passed third reading.
Mr. Bowser moved second reading of the Immigration Bill to exclude all who cannot write a
schedule in English.
Mr. Macdonald severely criticized the details of the bill, but
did not oppose the second reading. It passed unopposed, but
members gave notice that in
committee they would move to
cut out the English language
clause.
Mr. Garden's bill to amend the
Official Surveyor's Act by making
private surveys subject to its
provisions; Mr. Oliver's Ditches
and Watercourses Act, and Mr.
Ross* amendment to the Companies' Act, all passed second
reading.
Mr. Mclnnis moved the second
reading of the bill to establish
a general eight-hour day.
Mr. Ellison moved the six
months' hoist.
Mr. Hawthornwaite said the
motion was one of a capitalist
renegade.
Mr. Ellison rose and asked for
a retraction.
The Speaker called Mr. Hawthornwaite to order, but he said
the remark was not intended for
Mr. Ellison personally.
The bill was defeated, only
three Socialists and Mr. Jardine
supporting it. ..
This morning Mayor Morely
and a number of citizens called
on the Municipal Committee to
pro test against the proposed billto
alter the civic franchise and make
it like that of Vancouver. After
hearing both sides, the Committee
threw out the bill.
No sitting of the House was
held to-night Sittings will be
held on Saturday and porogation
is expected about Tuesday.
On Friday afternoon Mr. Mac-
gowan spoke strongly against
the University Endowment Bill
and voted against it on report
Mr. Munro, on Opposition,
voted for it, and it is now past
third reading.
Mr. Hawthornthwaite accused
the Salvation Army of bringing
out strike breakers, and produced
a document signed by ten men,
who accused the Army of bringing them out under false pretenses. He moved a resolution
calling on the Government to
stop any further influx, but only
the Socialists supported it.
At the evening sitting, the
Land Act passed second reading.
The Vancouver Charter Amendments were considered in
committee of the whole, but not
completed.
Questioned as to the statement
made by Mr. Hawthornthwaite
in the Legislature that the Government had an agreement with
the Salvation Army to bring out
mechanics from England, Hon.
Mr. Tatlow said the Government
had no agreement with the Army.
Its only negotiations were for
agricultural laborers and domestic servants, and had not been
completed.
Hon. Mr. Tatlow stated on
Tuesday that owing to newspaper reports an impression
seemed to have gone out that
Mr. R, F. Green was wholly responsible for tho arrangements
for the sale of the Point Grev
lands, but what he did was don)
with the full knowledge and concurrence of the other ministers.
Mr. Hawthornthwaite re-introduced his Salvation Army resolution calling on the Government
to provide for men brought out
and to stop any further influx.
Only the Socialists voted for it
In the course of the debate,
Hon. Mr. Tatlow produced a
telegram from Brigadier Howell
showing that the Government
has no connection with bringing
out the men.
The Court of Appeal and North
Vancouver bills both passed committee and a bill to divide the
municipality of South Vancouver
passed first reading.
At the evening session there
was a long wrangle in committee
over the amendment to the Land
Act to make it perfectly clear
that the one-fourth reservation
for the Government on townsite
lands should not apply to Hastings Townsite and Point Grey.
The debate was kept up till a
very late hour, and it was after
midnight when the House adjourned.
Attorney-General Fulton had
the misfortune to fall from the
stairs of his boarding house and
broke a rib. He pluckily attended to his duties most of the day
in spite of it, though in the latter
part of the afternoon and at
night Mr. Bowser took charge of
his bills..
The House held one sitting
on Tuesday. The North Vancouver Incorporation Act passed
third reading. Mr. Garden tried
to introduce a rough-grading
amendment, but was voted down.
The Court of appeal bill is now
ready for the third reading.
On further consideration of
the Land Act, Mr. Oliver again
brought up the lands in Hastings
townsite and Point Grey, and
moved that the clause releasing
the Government's one-fourth interest be struck out He said
the Government was entitled to
the revisionary interest from the
Hastings townsite land sale of
1894. The amendment was voted
down and the section stands.
The bill is ready for third reading.
On the third reading of the
Pharmacy Act, Mr. Hawthornwaite moved to strike out section
8, prohibiting department stores
from dealing in drugs unless the
majority of the shareholders are
druggists. The motion was defeated and the bill passed third
reading.
The Government entertained
the members of the House at
dinner in the evening.
It was expected that the House
would prorogue on Wednesday
night. All important bills except the Land Act had been reported complete, the members
were in readiness to leave th ?
city and the Lieut.-Governor was
waiting in the corridors, when
Mr. Oliver started in to obstruct
After four hours of wrangling,
he raised a point of order which
required the speaker to reserve
decision till Thursday. The
House adjourned at 1 o'olock
and Farmar John struck out for
the boat, leaving the other disappointed members to suffer a
day's delay on his account
Prorogation took place on
Thursday. THE FRASER ADVANCE, CHILLIWACK, B.C., SATURDAY, APRIL 27, 1007.

Mr. Aylesworth made a mistake when he concluded that he
could slander Mr. Foster out of
public life. The people have no
respect for such tactics. They
like a fight in the open. Moreover, Mr. Foster's twenty years
of public service, during which
he labored, but did not get rich
as some of his successors have
done, proclaim the character of
the man.-Mail and Empire.
Sir Wilfrid Laurier and Hon.
Richard McBride are now both

their destination. "Dewdney

British Columbia gets fair play
at the foot of the throne, as far
as subsidies or per capita from
Ottawa are concerned, and Sir
Wilfrid will endeavor to give just
as little to this province as he possibly can. It is dollars to doughnuts that our British Columbia
first minister will score a point.

Mr. Chamberlain was remembered at the Colonial Conference. A telegram was sent to
him expressing the hope of the
delegates that he would speedily
be restored to public life. This
message was an offering of
Kindly feeling, of which all who
subscribed to it were conscious,
but, what is more worthy of
note, it was an almost involuntary acknowledgment of Mr.
Chamberlain's leading. Whoever may be in office or whoever
out of office, the men who gather
in Colonial Conference cannot
but take off their hats to the
Birmingham statesman and
salute him as the chieftain of the
Empire party whose representatives they are.���Mail and Empire.
Whether Mr. Aylesworth convicted Mr. Foster of maladministration of the trust funds or Mr.
Foster convicted Mr. Aylesworth
of inspiring and directing an inquisition instructed to falsify and
misrepresent evidence, must of
course be a matter of judgment.
The facts brought out by the investigation are now public, and
the arguments of Mr. Foster and
Mr. Aj lesworth have been published. We have not seen anything to show that Mr. Foster
received a single dollar unearned
or that one of his investments of
his clients' money was imprudent
or selfish. On the other hand
Mr. Aylesworth convicted himself. He forgot the circumstances of the debate, and his somewhat judicial position as minister
of justice, and merely fought for
a verdict.���Nelson Canadian.
IN THE REALM Of SPIRIT.
A Chorus ot Syrens
(By a Banker)
After a triumphal progress
through India and other dependencies of tho British Empire, the
future King-Emperor with his
fair consort returns home. The
brilliant sun illumines those pure
white cliffs of old England, the
first glimpse of which after a
long absence has ever caused
such a thrill of emotion to throb
through the veins of the returning traveller; and the swift warship conveying the illustrious pair
is arriving within sight of the
powerful squadron of battleships
and cruisers sent out to escort
them into port; when suddenly
a heavy fog envelopes everything
in sombre, murky obscurity, so
dense and so impenetrable that
the entire fleet, unable to grope
its way, is compelled to cant
anchor.
And now those on shore (the
writer happened to be staying at
a watering place in the bay in
which the fleet was anchored)
were startled by an extraordinary
outburst of hoarse, discordant
uproar. Now the air is rent by
the angry roaring of tigers fighting for their prey; now a pair of
barking and yelping mastiffs or
wolf hounds begin to snarl and
growl, and some hungry hyaenas
commence viciously to yap and
grunt; and now with a trumpet-
tongued whoop and a series of
stridulous, hooting screeches,
changing to the most unearthly,
ear-piercing yells, it would appear as if a savage fight to the
death between mastodons and
iguanodons or some other mighty
monsters of the past was taking
place.
At length all this gruesome din
���caused by that most hideous
sound-producing instrument ever
devised by mortal man, the fog-
syren���ceases, and those on the
lofty cliff, far above the fog, sel,
numerous columns of black smoke
emitted apparently from the sur
face of the ocean as though from
a number of submarine volcanoes;
for the upper surface of the fog
exactly resembled the surface of
the sea. Soon, as the fog commences to sink down, the fighting tops of the warships, together with the tops of the funnels,
come into view; the appearance
now being as though the entire
fleet had been worsted in a great

The Best Yet
With the present number this
paper enters upon the
SEVENTEENTH YEAR
of its existence. Our friends will
be pleased to know that OUR
BONA FIDE PAID CIRCULATION IS LARGER THAN EVER
BEFORE IN THE PAPER'S
HISTORY and is steadily growing.
But we are determined to make it grow faster yet, and we want
every reader to help us.
MORE SUBSCRIBERS
MEANS
MORE ADVERTISERS
and more of both means A BETTER PAPER. Two weeks
ago we directed attention to a very  interesting book entitled
Among the An-ko-me-nums
which had just been published by Rev. Thos. Crosby of Sardis,
B.C., the well known Indian missionary.    Believing that this excellent book should be in every home in this community, we have
made special arrangements whereby we are able to offer it
FREE
THE FARMERS' fORUM.
Eggs for Hatching.
Whether for natural or artificial incubation one of the prime
requisites is that the eggs be in
first-class condition when put under the hen or in the incubator.
Failure to observe this point
must result in disappointment.
In discussing the care of eggs
intended for hatching purposes,
Wallace's Farmer says: In a
tin pan, uncovered, on the cupboard shelf may be fifty eggs for
hatching. It is possible with a
farm flock that forty-five of these
will have germs vigorous enough
to reach the hatching point if
properly cared for. It is also
possible that ten to fifteen of
these germs are on the top of the
pan, and exposed to a constant
current of air. As the egg shell
is porous, there is a constant
evaporation, noticeable in the increase of the size of the air cell
from day to day. These top
germs may be weakened after a
few days of such exposure as to
lack vitality to live through the
period of incubation. If they die
during this period no special regret is felt so long as most of the
eggs hatch well, but the hatching of ten chicks where it might
have been possible to have hatched thirteen by handling the eggs
as tenderly as one handles the
baby chick and protecting it from
injury before setting as we protect the chick after hatching, is
a leak which if stopped would
add to our profits.
"Eggs for hatching keep best
in a uniform temperature of about
45 degrees. They should be protected from drafts, jolts, and extremes of temperature. They
should be gathered frequently in
cold weather to avoid chilling
and in warm weather to prevent
overheating by remaining in a
nest frequented by several hens.
If they are soiled, wash them as
soon as gathered, and rinse well,
leaving the shell clean and porous. To simply smear the dirt
over the surface by wiping is to
close the pores, and prevent the
egg hatching. If the marks are
only from muddy feet the eggs
do not require such thorough
cleaning. Badly soiled eggs may
be soaked to advantage. To half
wash eggs which have been soiled
by a broken egg in the nest is to
injure them for hatching. Use
the same thought for the germ,
the chick in the egg, that you
use for the chick out of the egg."

UNIMPROVED OPPORTUNITY
We have on several occasions
called attention to the loss which
this place is sustaining because
of the lack of a good road leading up the Chilliwack River to the
Mount Baker mining district.
Anybody at all acquainted with
the topography of the country
will understand that this is the
natural route for reaching the
valuable mining properties in
that district. There is not the
slightest doubt that a good road
is the one desideratum to secure
to Chilliwack practically the entire trade of these mines. The
trouble seems to be that Chilliwack merchants have grown accustomed to being content with
the trade which comes to them
ia natural course from this
valley alone, and give practically no thought to the possibilities of swuiing outside busi.
nws. If our Board of Trade
would vigorously take up the
matter and press upon the attention of the Government the desirability of re-building the
Chilliwack River road in a substantial manner, we believe that
a strong case could be made out
and that an adequate appropriation could be secured. What we
are losing as a business community can be best understood
by a careful perusal of the folia wing article clipped from a recent number of The Maple Falls
Leader:
It is given out on good authority that more freight will betaken
into the Mount Baker mining
district in 1907 than in any pre-
viousyear of its history. It is
estimated that the tonnage of
straight mining freight will exceed that of 1900 by about 50
per cent. The large number of
enquiries received from Belling-
ham, Seattle and other parts of
the Northwest for rates of transportation lead tothisconclusion.
A majority of the tonnage of
the Mount Baker district last
year was supplied by the Columbia Improvement Company,
which built the Xooksack Fails
power plant, and this naturally
swelled the freight business of the
hills abnormally. This year
nothing will be taken into the
district except miners supplies
and mining machinery, with the
exception of supplies for the
power station, which will be very
small compared with the machinery handled last year.
This year will witness a heavy
tonnage in mining machinery if
present plans materialize, and
the general supplies will be em
ployed in the mines and in prospecting. Among the properties
to instal machinery are the Great
Excelsior and possibly the
First Chance anil Mount Raker
& Hliuksan, aside from air
compressors ami smaller machinery to hi' installed by other
concerns.
The value of the machinery to
In- intuited in the Mount Raker
ivgion iii 1907 will exceed #101),-
00(1, and may reach #150,000.
This will furnish scores of Ions of
freight. In addition to this carloads of provisions will be
shipped in, and of this trade
Rellinghain merchants will get
the lion's share. Maple Falls
and Glacier also will share generously in the trade of the hills.
For the greater part of the
season from four to six packers
will be kept busy between Glacier
and Hliuksan, and on the paths
diverging from the end of the
wagon road at Shiiksan.
REV. THOMAS CROSRY, D. I).
Last Saturday the Senate of
Victoria College, Toronto, conferred the honorary degree of
Doctor of Divinity upon the Rev.
Thos. Crosby, of Sardis, in recognition of his long and faithful
service as missionary to the Indians of British Columbia. If
our Canadian Universities are to
indulge in the practice of dispensing honorary degrees at all,���a
practice which has been carried
to absurd lengths by some
American institutions of learning
���they can make no mistake in
thus honoring men who have
devoted their lives to the unselfish service of others. We join
with his host of friends in extending congratulations to Dr. Crosby
and trust that many years of
bright and joyous activity may
vet remain to him.
ACROSS THE ATLANTIC.
Premier McBride sailed from
St, John, N.B., a week ago today, on theC.P.R. steamer Empress of Ireland, and will likely
have arrived in London before
this reaches our readers. The
eyes of all loyal British Columbians will be upon him for the
next few weeks and all ought to
wish him success irrespective of
party. While in Montreal the
Premier is reported to have said
that he would not make any
effort to put British Columbia's
case directly before the Colonial
Conference, but would do his
work through the Colonial
Office. Despite the pleasantries
of his critics, we look to see Mr.
McBride make good upon this as
upon all previous occasions.
THE FRASER NOT IN IT.
It would look as though the
Fraser River were in danger of
losing its reputation for aggressiveness, if we may believe the
following from the pen of George
Fitch in the April American
Magazine:
"The Missouri River is the
hungriest river ever created. It
is eating all the time���eating
yellow clay banks and cornfields,
eighty acres at a mouthful; winding up its banquet with a truck
garden and picking its teeth with
the timbers of a big red barn.
Its yearly menu is ten thousand
acres of good, rich farming land,
several miles of railroad, a few
hundred houses, a forest or two
and uncounted miles of sandbars."
The estate of the late Hon. A.
G. Blair has been probated at
9200,000, aud will all go to the
family of the deceased, It is a
noteworthy fact that every retired
Cabinet member of the present
Ottawa administration has left
the public service with nioretliiin
a competence,
The lateBt reports as we go to press
offer small ground of hope for an early
settlement of the coal strike in Eastern
H.t;. and Alberta. If the men do not
go to work within the next week,
mining, smelting, manufacturing and
railway operations will be practically
paralysed through the entire Canadian
West.
EAST CHILLIWACK.
A. B. Glass who sold out here a few
months ago and subsequently made a
trip to Manitoba, is again in the locality
on a short trip.
G. E. Chadsey is making due prep
arations to erect a new home shortly.
The School yard here has been much
improved and brightened as the result
of Arbour Day. On that day a garden
was made across the entire front. After the necessary clearing, ploughing,
etc., was done a dozen trees, and many
shrubs and plants were set out. Much
credit is due to Trustee A.D. Wheeler
and his asistants, Adam Johnston, Henry
Johnston, Watkins, John Parker, Ed.
Ramsdell, Jos. Brannick and J. Harrison. No pains or energy was spared
to do the work well. Each week a
little more is being done and seeds are
planted by the teachers and pupils.
Everything done tends to favourable
results and a pleasant school-yard.
The young men of Cheam and East
Chilliwack are organizing a junior football team. The first meeting was held
on Tuesday evening.
E. 0. Eckertof Vancouver, bought
40 acres of timber land this week from
Thomas Jackman, and the timber on
the Ed. Ramsdell property.
Broken Sleep -Tired Next Morning
Sleep not only rests, but builds up the
body. Cut down the hours of sleep,
and you cut down health in the same
proportion. Rebuilding then ceases,
nerves go to smash, you grow tired,
weak ana wretched.
To restore sleep you must get more
bodily strength, more nutritious blood,
healthier nerves. Ferrozone solves the
whole problem, makes you sleep soundly, gives endurance, vim, ambition. No
more morning weakness���instead the
fire of youth will run in your veins, supplying abundance of energy and vigor.
Witchery expresses the instant effect
of Ferrozone; try it.���Adv. 15.

Timely  Precaution.
"Maria' said Mr. Quigley, entering his home in some excitement, "I want you to promise
me not to look at the papers for
the next three months!"
"What for ?" wonderingly
asked Mrs. Quigley.
"I have just been nominated
for a public office," he faltered,
"and I don't want you to find out
what kind of man I really am."
Upside Down
"Help! Help!' cried an Italian
laborer near the mud-flats of the
Harlem River.
"What's the matter there?'
came a voice from the construction shanty.
"Quick! Bringa da shov'l
Bringa da peek! Giovann s
stuck in da mud."
"How far in ?"
"Up to hees knees."
"Oh let him walk out."
"No, no! He no canna walk!
He wronga end up !" ���Everybody's Magazine.
What Restrained Him
A stranger in a small town
wanted the advice of a lawyer
and as he was hunting for one
one day he came upon a sign
which read, "A. Swindle, Attorney at Law."
He entered the office and after
receiving the necessary advice
said that the lawyer was a fine
man, but he wanted to know
why he made his name sound so
ridiculous and why he did not
put his name in full.
"I would," replied the lawyer,
laughing, "if my first name
were not Adam."
Negro uallantry.
"When I was preaching at
Walla Walla, Washington," said
a Kansas clergyman, "there was
no negro preacher in town, and I
was often called upon to perform
a ceremony between negroes.
One afternoon, after I had married a young negro couple, the
groom asked the price of the
service.
'"Oh, well,' said I, 'you can
pay me whatever you think it is
worth to you.'
"The negro turned and silently
looked his bride over from head
to foot, then slowly rolling up
the whites of his eyes said :
"Lawd, sah, you has done
ruined me for life; you has, for
sure.'"���Chicago Inter-Ocean.
No Need for Mosquito Netting
A friend from the North had
gone to visit the Colonel, who
lived in the swampy Mississippi
River bottoms of Louisana.
There was no mosquito netting-
over the bed, and in the morning,
when the negro came with the
water and towels, the tortured
visitor asked: "Sam, why is it
that you have no mosquito netting over the beds? Doesn't
the Colonel have any in his room ?
"No, suh," replied Sam.
"I don't see how he stands it."
"Well, suh," said Sam, "I
reckon it's jes' dis way : in de
fo' part uv de night, suh, de
Colonel's mos' gen'rally so 'toxi-
cated dat he don't pay no 'tention

The private saluted and
started to leave the room. He
paused at the door, asking: "Sor,
may I spake to you, not as an
officer, but as mon to mon ? ''
"Yes, what is it ?"
"Well, sor, what I am after
sayin' is this��� ' approaching the
captain and lowering his voice :
"You and I are two of the most
illigant liars the Lord ever made.
I'm not married at all."���Everybody s Magazine.
A Woman Is Not a "Person.''
A most amusing incident recently occurred in St. John, New
Brunswick, where a Miss Mabel
French, after passing her examination with high honors, was denied permission to practise law in
the Supreme Court because according to the "Act" only "persons" were allowed to practise
law, and ' 'women were not persons''���"only men were persons."
Soon after a woman was arrested for drunkenness, and on
trial pleaded "not guilty," being
"a woman" and "not a person"
���therefore not amenable to the
law. The magistrate found the
law to read "that any person
found drunk was liable to fine or
imprisonment; and ruled that
according to the decision of the
Supreme Court "women were not
persons, and could not be imprisoned nor fined," so the prisoner was discharged.
As a result the legislature
promptly passed an "Act" "designating women as persons;" so
Miss French was allowed her degree in law.
But no study of woman's po^
litical progress can be just that
does not take into account her
rapid and enormous development
in the faculty of organization,
and in intelligent interest in public concerns. These are absolutely essential to the formation
of a democracy, to the wise and
safe exercise of the suffrage; and
it is precisely in these that the
phenomenal record of the woman's movement is most clear.
The strongest proof of woman's
long inferiority is her lack of association; only in religious bodies
was she allowed to organize; and
the strongest proof of her rapid
approach to equality is in the uncounted thousands who now
gather together in Clubs and Societies of every description, charitable, reformatory, educational,
social, political: and of all sizes,
from the handful of the "Ladies
Literary" to the International
Council of Women, which in 1899
represented through its many
constituents national organizations a membership of six million.
In the next Quinquennial meeting of 1904 the National Councils
joining had doubled in number,
but the sum of their respective
memberships is not at hand.���

Most Illigant Liars
A private, anxious to secure a
leave of absence, sought his captain with a most convincing tale
about a sick wife breaking her
heart for his presence. The
officer, familiar with the soldier's
ways, replied :
"I am afraid you are not
telling the truth. I have just
received a letter from your wife
urging me not to let you come

comes in a report furnished by
the French Society of Hypnology

The story he has to tell is of a
little girl of eleven in one of the
French provinces, who used to
accompany a cousin, who was a
country doctor, on his rounds,

More Pleasure In Earning Than In

One day she fell ill. The ill-
ness was slight, and she was on
the high road to recovery when
her cousin, the doctor, happened
to say unthinkingly and smilingly
in her presence, "Oh, good
heavens ! She is paralyzed ! "
At once the child exhibited every
symptom of paralysis, and she
remained in that state at the will
of the doctor. Afterwards he
asked her if she was not becoming consumptive, and immediately she began to suffer from
the dreadful coughing and blood
spitting that consumptive patients have.
She seemed so extraordinarily
open to every sort of mesmeric
"suggestion" that the doctor
tried her with half the diseases
known in medical annals, and
one by one she responded to
them all. He needed only to remark that she was cured, to have
her well a moment later. Perhaps the strangest of the experiences she went through was

mania from which he cannot es<
cape. Seeking to do so, he finds
that, during the years of youth,
maturity and age, his finer sensibilities have remained dormant
for want of use. His ambition,
his appreciation, his efficiency,
'have centered on money-making,
to the partial or total sacrifice of
the other faculties of his nature.
Late in life, perhaps, he tries to
broaden out, but finds it very
hard. The enthusiasm of youth
is gone. He can take interest
only in the making of money,
35 21 and when he gets it, his greatest
1 21 care is to dispose of it. What
monumental folly! How much
better to be content with less
possessions, but store up treasure
in the mind and soul, to do some
good in the world, and to live a
full-orbed life. Millionaires are
missionaries, who, by example,
teach us the misery of striving
after riches and the wisdom of
enjoying what we have, seeing
that more pleasure comes from
, M the culture of a cherished flower-
13 g3 bed or a tree than from the mere
17 08 ownership of a conservatory or a

An ancient-looking flint-lock musket
bedecked with brass tacks and covered
with a deep coat of rust, has attracted a
great deal of attention in Cawley &
Paisley's office for a few days past. It
was found by John Bell, a member of
the government party at Vedder
Crossing, during the excavations at
that place. There is no date to be seen
on the gun, but Indians pronounce it of
the Hudsou Bay Co. period, and suggest that it probably was buried in
some Indian's grave and subsequently
dug up and cast aside according to the
usual practice

was again opened on Thursday morning

the bone Mr. Cruickshank returned

mother is at present with him at the

credit of Dr. McCaffrey that he insisted
from the first that the seat of the
trouble was within the bone itself

Chilliwack lost another old-timer this
week in the person of Reuben Nowell,
wbo passed away suddenly on Monday
morning at the ripe age of 78 years.
Mr. Nowell was a native of Bangor,
Me., and came west to California in the
rush of '49. Later he followed the
Caribou excitement in 1858 up the Fraser
River. After a short experience in
placer mining, he settled in Chilliwack,
being the second or third white man in
the valley, and has resided here con- 1
tinuously ever since Mr. Nowell leaves '
a wife, three sons and two daughters.
His eldest son died some years ago from
injuries received in the Ramona accident at Langley. The second son is
Practising law at Bisbee, Arizona, and
wo others are at home. One daughter,
Mrs. Hunt, is with her mother and the
other is a trained nurse at Enderby, B.
C. The deceased was a member of
Ionie Lodge No. 19, A. F. & A. M��� and
was buried on Tuesday with Masonic
honours. The funeral was largely attended, attesting regard for the deceased and sympathy with the bereaved
family.
