the steamer Princess May as the
vessel was leaving Vancouver

Saturday morning. It is believed
that her death, like that of her
husband, was due to heart failure.
The following is from the
Boundary Creek Times: The
Longboat education fund, inaugurated by the Toronto Globe,
has closed at the magnificent
total of $180.25. It seems a pity
that say five others of Toronto's
citizens had not kept a cent each
out of the Cobalt pot and
rounded the thing up to $180.30.
That would have been a thirty
cent ending at least. And Toronto aspires to be the educational centre of Canada! It
doesn't look as if Longboat was
going to get much of an education. If the list were not absolutely closed we would suggest
taking up a collection for the
fund in some little Jim Crow
mining camp out west, and
raising the amount a few
Dr. S. F. Tolmie conducted a
Stock Judging School at the Fair
Grounds on June 4th, about 50
farmers being present Score
cards were supplsed to each.
The first animal that was judged
was a cow, which according to
Dr. Tolmie's judgment, scored
851 out of a possible 100. Out
of 20 students that scored, F.
Barr was first, 86; R. H. Cairm >
second, 831; J. A. Evans, third,
There was quite a difference of
opinion about the weight of the
cow, the range being from 800
to 1,200 pounds. Dr. Tolmie and
James Bailey guessed 925 pounds,
The cow when placed on the
scales weighed 935.
A fine Clyde mare was then
scored, 11 students took part.
Five out of the eleven correctly
guessed the age to be seven
years. One student from the
Bunch Grass Country declared
the mare to be 11 years old. The
student that scored the weight
to be 1,900, was laughed at, as
the lowest score was 1,560. The
actual weight when placed on
the scales was 1,815 pounds.
Dr. Tolmie scored 73| points,
James Bailey, 75; Wm. Cornby,
711; Jas. Grigg, 691.
Dr. Tolmie pointed out the
good and bad points of the
animals, and also called upon
the students to explain their
reasons in reference to the scale
of points. The meeting lasted
for three and a half hours and
closed by giving Dr. Tolmie a
hearty vote of thanks.
The evening meeting was
held at the Court House,
about 60 being present
Mr. Anderson, Deputy Minister of Agriculture, addressed the meeting in reference
to Farmers' Institute work, and
was sorry to hear that the
number of Institute members
seemed to be decreasing. Chilliwack should have a membership of at least 250 members.
The Department of Agriculture
are doing their best to assist in
the matter of securing proper
men as Institute speakers, and it
rests with the farmers whether
they take advantage of the opportunities offered. A great
deal of the success of an Institute rests with the secretary.
The chairman then called on
Dr. Tolmie to address the
The Dr. said tnat his subject
would be Animals and their Diseases. He was glad to see that
Chilliwack is making progress in
producing good animals. He
had just returned from Vernon,
testing horses and found some
splendid specimens, valued at
$200 to $500 each, and as far as
his opinion goes Chilliwack can
produce horses for the market as
cheap as they can in
other places. Good light hones,
if well broke, can be disposed of
in the coast cities at high prices.
A large quantity of the beef
that is used at the present time
comes from Calgary at a cost of
6 cents per pound live weight
Chilliwack should produce more
beef. From 50,000 to 75,000
sheep are imported from the U.
S. annually for mutton.
The Dr. spoke at length on the
diseases of animals and asked
the farmers what symptoms they
had noticed in cases of hog
cholera and if they had been suc-
csasful in treating the disease.
One of the farmers present had
given a liberal dose of blue mass,
castor oil and fish hooks.
The Dr. in speaking of tuberculosis said that it is an established fact that bovine tuberculosis is dangerous to the
human species.
A hearty vote of thanks was
tendered to the speakers.���Com.
The Union Sunday School Have a
Pleasant Outing.
The annual picnic of the Union
Sunday School on the Ford Road,
was held at the South Sumas
schoolhouse on Saturday, June 1.
The cows had never been so
easily and quickly milked as that
morning, which shows what can
be achieved when there is a
bright hope inspiring. On our
way to the grounds we met
pleasant faces and merry voices
everywhere, all heading for the
little paradise. The weather was
given by the Lord so favorable
that it could not have been
better. Swings were erected by
Messrs. Alward, Pearson, and
Arthur Beaumont and when all
was ready for the start the
ladies, too numerous to mention
all by name, had prepared a fine
lunch an the soft grass and
seasoned with wit and humor, it
was one of the best meals we
ever had. Then the boys played
football and the girls had a
swing and others took a walk,
and the older ones felt young
seeing the joy of the little folks.
Some thought we ought to have
every week a day like that,
others wished that all our days
should thus be spent. Schiller's
word "To something better are
we born," were re-expressed,
and I hope sincerely that the
effect of that day will leave an
everlasting benediction, and that
belief in one God and Father, in
one church and a united Christian family will strongly absorb
all more and more.
May this little stone, a united
Sunday School, quickly increase
and smash all the images and
realms of isms completely. I
thought of years gone by when I
attended German Singerfestivals
and wished that here the power
Secretary W J.   Brandrith  Pays
Valley a Vltlt.-Danger ol
Hlqh Water Past
W. J. Brandrith, of Ladner,
secretary of the B.C. Fruitgrowers Association, was in
town yesterday and called at the
Advance office. His trip to Chilliwack was for the purpose of
personally ascertaining the prospects of our fruit crop for the
6resent season. He expressed
imself as highly gratified at the
conditions here, declaring with*
out hesitation that the outlook
for a good crop in Chilliwack
was decidedly more promising
than in any other part of the
province. As far as can be determined at the present time,
the frosts of a month ago did
less damage here than in most
places. In some sections of the
province the cherry crop will be
almost a total failure, while other
fruits have suffered as well. Reports from the fruit belts of
Washington and Oregon show
that the cherry and peach orchards have suffered greatly,
and the probabilities are that the
entire fruit production will not
be more than half the usual
amount. Mr. Brandrith, however, thinks that unless something unforeseen transpires, the
loss throughout British Columbia
will be just about offset by the
increased acreage in bearing this
year, so that the total production for the province will be
practically up to the average.
Asked for his opinion regarding the prospects of a high water,
Mr. Brandrith thought that the
danger line was past. On his recent return from the interior he
observed that all snow had disappeared from the lower hills,
so that the water now coming
down is all from the Upper
Thompson and Fraser rivers.
With ten days before the next
high tides and over five feet of a
margin to rise before there will
be any real danger, things look
pretty safe despite all the alarms
sounded by the sensational press
Dam Burets
On Thursday of last week the
dam in Garnet Valley, five miles
from Summerland burst, and the
water rushed to the lake, carrying with it uprooted trees, and
damaging bridges and orchards.
The residence of Hector Sutherland was completely demolished.
The dam enclosed a body of
water three-quarters of a mile
long, thirty yards wide and fourteen feet deep, and served to
irrigate about five hundred acres
of land.  	
Labor scarce.
Owing to the scarcity of labor
in the Boundary, the Coal Company at Fernie has sent a representative to Winnipeg to collect men for work in the coke
ovens. The fares will be paid by
the Company.

"Praise God from whom all

thanks for what they enjoyed

J. BURTT MORGAN, -Editor and Proprietor,
The recent verdict in the case
of McKenzie vs. Chilliwack has
laid a fresh emphasis upon the
importance of this municipality
taking every precaution to safeguard the lives and limbs of its
citizens, as well as incidentally
to protect itself against unnecessary claims for damages. The
deplorable tragedy enacted in
the basement of the Court House
last October, with its harrowing
and heart-rending details, is too
fresh in the public mind to require mention. Now that the
court has placed the responsibility upon the municipality, the
matter is open for public discussion. According to the view
taken by the judge and jury, the
case appears to be very simple.
When the local authorities had
arrested and taken into custody
the two men they were responsible for their safe keeping and
should have taken the necessary
precaution to protect their lives
against all possible harm. This
was not done simply because of
the utter impossibility of one
man properly performing the
duties of constable, gaoler,
health officer and lamp-lighter
all at the same time. The arrangement whereby so many
offices were vested in one person
was due solely to considerations
of economy. How economical it
proved is now quite apparent.
For the sake of saving a few
paltry dollars, the expenditure
of which would have made no
appreciable difference to any
tax-payer in the district, two
human lives were sacrificed, two
families plunged into grief, the
community disgraced and a snug
bill of $7,000 and costs incurred.
Indeed, in the estimation of a
good many the municipality is
fortunate in not having a much
larger sum to pay.
Tuition in the school of experience always comes high and
the fees invariably have to be
met. In the present instance,
as in all such cases, there is only
one way of squaring the account,
and that is by heeding well the
lesson for which we have to pay.
However desirous we may be of
keeping down taxation it must
be borne in mind that there is a
point below which we cannot go
with safety. As as orderly, self-
respecting, up-to-date community
we are bound to maintain cer
tain institutions for the convenience, safety and well-being of
our citizens. To starve the
public service is to decrease its
efficiency to the point, not only
of usefulness, but of positive
danger. Better no service at all
than a mere pretense. It is about
i uu taut the good sense of the
people was thoroughly aroused
to this fact and some radical
changes brought about in the administration of our public affairs.
We presume that no chances will
be taken in connection with the
custody of municipal prisoners
hereafter, but there are other
matters which demand attention.
It is a well known fact that
although several bridges in the
municipality have been condemned as dangerous for months,
yet they have been left open to
the public, a menace to life and
property and a standing invitation to more damage suits. Dead
cattle and other animals are
complained of as public nuisances in different localities,
sending their pestilential odors
into neighboring residences.
And what shall we say of the
danger to unwary travellers after
night, offered by that uncouth
block of granite commonly called
a "fountain" which serves no
purpose but to obstruct travel in
the street centre of the busiest
corner in town ? . Should somebody be killed or maimed by collision with this obstruction the
municipality could certainly not[
escape liability. On the veryl
lowest plane of possible financial j
loss, the people of the valley
should arouse themselves to demand a new order of things, and
that without delay.

The first hack in Chilliwack made its
appearance on the streets on Saturday
night last an did a rushing business.
The soft seats and rubber tires seemed
to produce quite and exhilarating effect
on the "boys" and the hack horses
must have thought they were drawing
the steam calliope at the tail end of a
circus parade. After inspecting the
"dyke" several times and singing
"Don't tell them that you saw me,"
"Waltz ma around again, Willie," etc.,
time and wind up was called, and the
jovial crew who initiated the hack,
sought out the strongest telephone
poles and waited for their respective
houses to come along.

Some time last year two "plain
clothes" gentlemen who were passing
a certain place not more than 1,800
miles from Chilliwack, thought they
heard certain words which sounded
strangely familiar to them, viz:
"Stand pat," "Mis-deal," "Hit the
kitty," etc., and as the meaning of the
words came back to them their
thoughts evidently wandered back
to their boyhood days, for they
dectded to "sitin" and take a "stack."
Their advent caused a little uneasiness
for a minute or so, as they came into
the lodge room without the pass word
or the proper raps, and those in the
' charmed circle" did not know for a
while whether they were playing I
Casino or Old Maid, as their X ray
eyes were trying to pierce through the
strangers sleeves to see if they had a
"holdout." The fun came when one
of the "plain clothes" gentlemen
thought it wastime for a "show down"
and as he held a "club" flush and the
others held���their breaths, then everything began to look "blue" and the
"pot" was anybody's for a while. One
of the "boys," who is somewhat of a
magician, and who possesses the wonderful faculty of ma it ing one believe
they are coming off the top of the deck
when in reality they are dropping from
!the bottom, was heard to murmur a
'. little ditty, entitled, "I don't know
where I'm going, but I am on my way,"
and at that instant both "pot" and
magician vanished into thin air, at
least it seemed that way to those in
the gallery. From information re.
ceived from those who "Don't go home
till morning," they say checkers could
easily have been played on the coat tails
of those who had suddenly decided that
"there is no place like home," and that
the 100-yard record was reduced from
10 seconds to 7 and 3-6.    These enter
tainments being rather strenuous on
the actors, there will be "nothing
doin' " for a while at least, and everyone is now whistling that old familiar
tun.e "Wait Till the Clouds Roll By,.

What is There in a Name ?
I will give a $6.00 rocker or
$5.00 on any piece of Furniture, Carpet, Carpet Squares,
Linoleum, Oil Cloths, Window Shades, etc., in the store to the one who will suggest a name (that
suits me) for a new $10 mattress, fuily guaranteed, that I am now offering. This mattress is
made of pure cotton felt, both sides, and the best hand picked moss in centre, (this moss is like
hair) which gives this mattress a softness and buoyancy possessed by none, except the Ostermoor,
which I sell at $15.] Anyone can see this mattress by calling at the store and get full particulars. If two or more send
the same name, the first one to reach me will draw the prize. Anyone can compete, so send in the name which you believe is appropriate. This contest will close on June 15, at 8 p.m. I will now have the best $15 mattress, which is the
Ostermoor, this $10 mattress, and the best $5 and $3.75 mattress in B.C.
