Obsequious.
The minister of a negro church
in Richmond gave out a funeral
notice one Sunday as follows: "I
have to announce to you, bredren
and sisters dat de funeral of the
only survivin' son of the late
Thomas Pinkers an' his widow,
Martha Jane Pinkers, both deceased, will take place an' come
to occurrence on Tuesday next at
twelve M. noon precisely. An' I
have to say, bredren and sisters,
dat contributions for carryin' out

Samuel Pinkers has got jes'
money enough to bury hisself
without any obsequious ceremonies, seen as he deserves."

Tainted Money.
The big touring-car had just
whizzed by with a roar like a
gigantic rocket, and Pat and Mike
turned to watch it disappear in a
cloud of dust.
"Thim chug wagons must cost
a heap av cash," said Mike. "The
rich is fairly burnin' money."
"An' be the smell of it,''
sniffed Pat, "it must be thot
tainted money we do be hearin'
sd much aboot."-Success.
The point with regard to alcohol
is simple enough. It is, of course
distinctly a poison, and it, as a
poison, like other poisons, has
certain uses; but the limitations
of the use of alcohol should be as
strict as the limitations of the use
of any other kind of poison. Moreover it is a curiously insidious
poison, in that it produces effects
which seem to have only one
antidote���alcohol again. This
applies to another drug, equally
as insiduous, and that is morphia
or opium. Unfortunately, the
term poison is by no means an
exaggerated one, when it is
realized that with alcohol as drunk
by the majority of the poorer
classes is mixed a virulent poison
in the form of fusil oil.���Sir F.

CREAM SEPARATOR
The Melotte is the most efficient Cream Separator yet
produced. The "Melotte" is
sold absolutely on its merits.
The "Melotte" skims cleaner,
turns easier, and will last
longer than any cream separator in the world.
WHAT DAIRY FARMERS
ARE LOOKING FOR:
The Hand Separator which will most efficiently separate
with the least amount of labor, the largest quantity in the
Quickest time, the easiest to clean and manage, and most
urable and safe. A trial will convince the most skeptical
that the "Melotte" is the machine which best fulfils all
these conditions.

A Clever Retort
An Irishman boarded a train in
which every seat except one was
occupied by two people. This
seat had as occupants, a young
"sport" and a large shaggy dog.
The Irishman stood by the seat,
expecting that room would be
made for him. The young man
did not take the hint, but regarded the other, who was poorly
dressed, with ill disguised scorn.
At last the Irishman remarked:
"That's a foine looking dog ye
have with ye-what breed is it?"
' 'It's a cross between a skunk and
an Irishman," was the sneering
answer. "Shure, then, its a
relative of both of us," was the
instant retort.-Ex.

Why Eqqs (Jo Bad
When people find that an egg
is rotten they throw it away, for
that fact in itself seems to be a
sufficient cause for such action
but in these days of ' 'cause and
effect" it is interesting to go a
little deeper into the matter, in
order to understand the agencies
which bring about this change.
In order that it may hatch
successfully and thus perpetuate
the parent species, it is necessary
that fresh air shall pass into the
egg. Hence the shell is provided
with minute pores. Upon everything with which the egg comes
in contact, and in the air that
passes into it, are numerous plants
of microscopic size, called
"bacteria." It is possible for
certain forms of bacteria to pass
the various guards (notably the
shell membranes) and thus reach
the yolk. Now, the yolk is an
excellent feeding ground for
bacteria, and under favourable
conditions they Will multiply by
millions. Each one is capable of
causing a chemical change or
ferment, so the more; numerous
they become in the egg, the
greater the degree of fermentation. If the fermentation reaches
a certain stage, we say the egg
is rotten,
The most important factor,
then for the preservation of the
egg, either as a food for man or
for the chick embryo, is to keep
these destructive bacteria from
becoming numerous in the ogg.
In the fertilized egg that has
been infected with these bacteria,
there will be a conflict between
the bacteria and the   growing
embryo. The bacteria will ferment the food substance that is
so necessary for the life and
nourishment of the chick embryo.
Should tho chick hatch, it will be
weakened, and there is a question
whether it will survive the brooding, fall victim to one of the numerous diseases, or grow up to be a
stunted specimen that detracts
from the standard of the flock.
The unfertilized egg that has
been similarly infected will be
rotten before the hatch is half
over, for the bacteria will have
full play to change and ferment,
as there will be no chick embryo
to gradually absorb its contents.
Cleanliness of the poultry-
house and furnishings is nec-
1 essary, as bacteria are numerous
in neglected buildings. Especial
care should be given the nesting
material, for dirty nesting material, smeared with broken eggs
whose contents have long since
decayed, serves as a certain means
of infection. It is advisable to
frequently gather the eggs intended for incubation; in cold
weather to prevent chilling, and
in warm weather to stay .the
progress of any objectionable
bacteria, which may have gained
a foothold. The eggs should be
put in a cool place as. soon as
gathered, about 50 degrees F.
being satisfactory temperature.
Even if soiled, they should not be
washed, as this process removes
from the shell a natural coating
of mucilaginous nature.
Another source of infection
must not be overlooked���viz.,
dirty incubators. When a mach.
ine is run hatch after hatch, the
trays and bottom having an accumulation of broken eggs, the
troublesome forms of bacteria are
very likely to be present. There,
fore, it is well to clean the machine
thoroughly, especially late in the
season, when bacteria are most
active. Brushing, washing and
airing the trays of the machine
will all help to overcome the
trouble.
The market demands clean,
fresh eggs���cleanliness of shell
and sweet condition of the contents. It is very essential, then,
that the greatest care should be
exercised to guard against these
invisible destroyers, which are
detrimental to the egg as used
for incubation, or used as one of
the greatest food products used
by man.���Nor' West Farmer.

I noticed a remedy mentioned
in an agricultural paper, says a
writer in the Ohio Fanner, which
I have used every year, Since I
have found it very effective. It
is simply lime water. Prepare a
good solution of lime and water
and let it stand a few days. Whan
setting the plants dip the roots in
the solution, then apply sufficient
to wet the stocks and roots at the
end of a few weeks, and your
trouble is over. I do not think it
destroys the maggots, but it renders the plants free from their
attacks.

NEW POSTAL RATES.
There has been a very general
outcry throughout both Canada
and the United States on account
of the new postal regulations
which came into effect on May
8th, whereby the newspaper rate
of postage between the two coun
tries was raised to one cent for
every four ounces or fraction
thereof. The change means that
every paper published either in
Canada or the United States will
require anywhere from one to five
or even six cents to carry it across
the line, and in the case of the
larger papers this will prcWeprad
tically prohibitive. The new scale
became necessary because of the
fact that Canada found that
under the former arrangement
she was carrying an immense
amount of American newspapers
for nothing, while the amount of
Canadian newspapers handled by
the U. S. postal authorities in
return was comparatively light.
Nobody seems to complain particularly ut the adjustment of
this obvious inequity, but there
is a strong feeling that sufficient
warning of the proposed change
should have been given, to allow
the publishers on both sides to
protect themselves against loss.
Papers must be delivered to all
advance subscribers regardless of
the change, and thereby a great
hardship to the extent of many
thousands of dollars will be experienced by the publishers. As
soon us this phase of the subject
was pressed upon the attention
of Postmaster General Lemieux,
he expressed regret at the injustice which had evidently been
done, but saddled the blame upon
the Postmaster General of the
United Stales, who he alleged
demanded that the arrangement
should go into effect without delay. The latter, however, now;
declares that he was quite willing
to do anything agreeable to the'
Canadian .Minister nnd would
readily have consented to defer j
the inauguration of the new rate,
untilJanuiiry 1st, 1908, had Mr. j
Leinietx so desired. The general'
public have the choice of accepting
either story according to their!
prejudices or predilections, while
the unfortunate publishers have {
no alternative but to gracefully J
pocket their loss and look'
pleasant. |

From time to time reports are
sent forth as to what is going to

t hiug but swift. A recent dispatch
declares that in addition to a
civil action for #2.">,(lot) damages
instituted against "The Gleaner
Limited,"a charge of criminal
libel will be preferred against
Managing Director Crocket. "In
the meantime," remarks the accused editorially, "all the Gleaner
desires to say is that it is
ready whenever Mr Emmerson
chooses to come on with his trial.
It is about two months since the
alleged libel was published and we
have hot yet received so much as
his statement of claim." Unless
someone is running a big bluff,
things ought to be interesting
when the case comes into court.
Somebody or something will
certainly drop.

What Causes Snoring.
When asleep, people that snore
breathe through the mouth instead of
the nostrils which are choked with
catarrh. Just use "Caterrhoxone" before retiring and you'll quickly euro the
snoring habit. By destroying the cause
of catarrh and healing the membranes,
Catarrhosone makes a complete cure in
every ease; it cleans the nostril*, stops
the discharge and prevents dropping in
the throat in a few minutes. (Nothing
so pleasant or certain to cure snoring,
catarrh or colds as Catarrhozone -that's
worth remembering.

How to Cure Toothache.
Any aching tooth can be relieved instantly with Nerviline. Fill the cavity
with batting dipped ih Nerviline and rub
the gums with Nerviline also. If the
face is swollen and sore, bathe the painful parts with Nerviline and cover with
a flannel. This can't fail because
Nerviline kills the pain outright and
prevents it from returning. Stronger,
quicker, more satisfactory than any
other liniment, Poison's Nerviline has
been the largest seller for nearly fifty
years; try-it yourself. -        -   {j

A Weird Assemblage.
(Uya Banker)
The most weird and gruesome
spectical to be witnessed upon
the face of the whole earth must
unquestionably be the Catacombs
of Palmero. Descending a long
flight of steps the visitor is soon
in the atmosphere of death. On
all sides are embalmed or petrified
bodies, or skeletons on which the
withered, parched skin makes
them even more gastly and hid
eous; many thousands of them;
many standing, many in more
recumbent posture, many lying
down; some clad in their ordinary
garments, some in their winding
sheets, some in the coarse canvas
grave clothes in which Sicilian
paupers are buried.
Here is a long row of priests,
standing up side by side as if
they were in the chancel of their
cathedral, all garbed in surplice,
and stole, and biretta; their gastly,
evil-favoured visages positively
repulsive; their skin like tough
brown parchment drawn tightly
over their drooping jaw-bones,
and their blear eyesockets
grinning with malevolent, lethal
stare. Here one of Garibaldi's
generals, in uniform, petrified,
and apparently as fresh as when
shot down on the field of battle
nearly fifty years ago, the death
wound on his forehead still visible.
Or here a gaunt cadaverous form
standingin a threatening attitude,
a deathly leer on his grisly, distorted countenance, and the skin
of his hideous face shrunk and
withered so that his projecting
teeth appear to be uttering a
snarling defiance.
And then, still proceeding down
the long galleries, yet more and
more gruesome sights are witnessed; tier above ties from floor
to ceiling of whole regiments, of
apparently, paupers; row after
row of females clad in white flowing shrouds, many of whom in
their youth doubtless Sicilian
beauties; now but haggard and
grisly deformities; and even
hundreds of babies and children
of all ages, some in their cots,
others in wooden boxes, others
lying in a heap as though in a
plague pit.
But enough of these repellant
sights; enough of the dank
miasma of this house of death.
And when the upper day is again
reached, and the glad sunshine
and the flower perfumed atmosphere have dispelled the depression and lugubrious melancholia
of the place, the thought crosses
the mind that a Day will come
when, at the sound of the Archangel's trumpet, all these dry
bones will suddenly start into life.
Then will some who during their
time of probation have served
and obeyed their God, and the
punishment of whose breaches of
his laws has been borne in their
stead by His Son, then will these
with ecstatic joy bound upwards
to the skies. But what must now
be the doom of those others, who
have rejected the Gospel and have
preferred their own opinions to
the Word of Almighty God.
A series of endurance tests
was recently conducted at Yale,
upon forty-nine persons, some of
them meat-eaters and some veg
etarians. The result showed (or
seemed to show), that the
vegetarians were not only capable
of greater exertion for a short
time, but were also possessed of
greater power of endurance. If
the experimenter had only been
able to assure us that the ancestry
was also purely vegetarian or
meat-eating the experiment
would be of greater value.

Fifty years ago the United
States had only about fifty millionaires, and their aggregate
wealth formed about one per cent,
of the total wealth of the nation,
Sixteen years ago the fortunes of
the millionaries formed fifty-six
per cent, of the nation's wealth,
To-day one per cent, of the
population control ninty-nine per
cent, of the wealth, at least so
says Henry Laurens Call.

The Meaning of Suffering.

Small &Bucklin Lumber Co. Ld.

Ship via Car, Tram or Boat. NEW WESTMINSTER, B.C.
The men of Thermoplyae, who
laid down their lives for their
country's good, did not understand, indeed, all that their
sacrifice achieved. We who look
back upon it, know that when
they stood and died there that
day, the voice of Divine wisdom
and love was saying to them,
"this is the sacrifice I ask on behalf of freedom, your death will
minister to the world, and you
will illuminate the ages with the
light of liberty."
It is the same in the case of
suffering which is inherited. The
man is born blind; it is a hard
case, no fault of his can be urged,
I but how does Christ interpret it?
through this infirmity of his
the works of God were to be made
known (St. John, ix.). If pain
and weakness become the means
of higher revelations to men, who
will not be content to suffer?
Human life becomes exalted as
man recognizes that not out of
caprice, but for the sake of making man, through pain, the
instrument of good to others,
does suffering enter his lot. If
the blow which causes the string
to quiver as in pain, brings forth
music to make men glad, the
thrill of anguish is abundantly
repaid. Did we know what power
lies in weakness, we should, like
the Apostle, glory in our infirmities. Men who start in life
deprived of the powers needful
for temporal success, are like
those who play a game of chess
deprived of their best piece. It
is little matter, therjrame is the
thing. The difficulty ot playing
the game with enfeebled forces
is greater, but the very difficulty!
they encounter is a sign that a i
larger trust is reposed on their
skill. The need of greater
thought, and more adroit management, brings its reward of
more fully exercised judgment.
Increased skill is a greater reward
than victory. The pains and
sacrifices of life have a recompense, and the man who seems to
lose his life may be the man who
most fully finds it.
Bishop Boyd Carpenter.

There are no boys like the good old
boys���
When we were boys together 1
When the grass was sweet to the brown
bare feet
That dimpled the laughing heather;
Whan the pewee sang to the summer
dawn
Of the bee in the billowy clover,
Or down by the mill the whip-poor-will
Echoed his night song over.
There is no love like the good old love���
The love that mother gave us 1
We are old, old men, yet we pine again
For that precious grace���God gave us!
So we dream and dream of the good old
times
��� And our hearts grow tenderer, fonder,
As those dear old dreams bring soothing
gleams
Of heaven away off yonder.

Dr. Shoop, Racine, Wis. .Troubles of
of the Stomach, Heart, or'Kidneys, are
merely symptoms of a deeper ailment.
Don't make the common error of treating the result of your ailment, and not
the cause. Weak stomach-the inside nerves means Stomach weakness,
always. And the Heart, and Kidneys
as well, have their controlling or inside
nerves. Weaken these nerves, and you
inevitably have weak vital organs. Here
is where Dr. Shoop's Restorative has
made its fame. No other remedy even

A Quiet weddlnq
St. Thomas Church was the scene of a
quiet, unannounced wedding on Wednesday evening at 8 o'clock, when
Richard Nash Pearson, Resident Engineer of the G. N. Ry. Co. at Abbotsford,
third son of Richard Pearson, Esq.,
Darlington, Eng., led to the altar Miss
Beatrice Marie Hill-Tout, daughter of
Chas. Hill-Tout, Esq., of Abbotsford.
The significent words were pronounced
by Rev. M. Jukes and the ceremohy witnessed by Miss Jukes and Dr. McCaffery.
The first intimation which anybody outside this small circle had of the joyous
and momentous event was when the
happy couple were seen in the gentle
shades of the spring evening emerging
from the church with that charming and
indefinable air which always proclaims
the new found joy of wedded existence.
After spending Thursday in town as
guests at the Harrison House, Mr. and
Mrs. Pearson drove yesterday to Abbotsford, where they will make their home
for the present.
It appears that the marriage had been
planned to take place at Vancouverearly
in June, but for reasons of their own
the principals quite suddenly decided to
precipitate matters a little. On Wednesday morning they took the train to
Sumas, Wash., where they procured a
rig and drove to Chilliwack, arriving in
town about 6.30 p.m. Upon arrival here
no time was lost, the ceremony being
performed as soon as the clergyman
and witnesses could be assembled.
The Advance extends its congratulations and best wishes to Mr. and Mrs
Pearson for many happy and prosperous
years together.
Chilliwack Celebrates
Although yesterday's celebration was
not quite up to the standard of previous
occasions in some respects, yet everything passed off very pleasantly and reflected credit upon the Band and Lacrosse Club, which had it in hand On
account of Sunday-School picnics at
Sardis, East Chilliwack and Rosedale the
crowd in attendance was not what it
should have been. The day, however,
was matchlessiand everybody seemed to
enjoy themselves to the limit The programme   was strictly adhered to   as
previously announced and some impromptu features added, so that all got
their money's worth of fun and entertainment. ' Unfortunately our space
limits will only permit brief mention of
the mo.;t important features of the day's I
doings.
The parade under the direction of A. j
L. t'oote got away from the Court House
shortly after ten o clock. Although disappointing in size, it was otherwise
creditable. The marching of the school
children was excellent, and the young
ladies' on decorated bicycles produced a
pretty effect, while the Band boys were
therewith the goods as usual. Upon reaching the Fair Grounds C. W. Munro, M.
L. A. was called upon for the speech of
the day. Mr. Munro was in good form
and was well received by the assembled
crowd. "There should be ��� purpose
in all that we do, he said, and
this gathering   was    for   a twofold
Surpose, to celebrate a national holi-
ay in commemoration of the birth of
that peerless woman Queen Victoria,
whose life had' meant so much to the
Empire and to indulge in recreation.
He emphasized the need of recreation
in this strenuous age, and attributed
the unprecedented popularity of King
Edward and President Roosevelt to
their participation in the people's pleasures.- He welcomed the American
citizens present arid impressed the duty
of gentlemanliness upon pur own boys,
concluding amid loud applause. With a
few words from Mr Coote the panders were dismissed and the sports of
the day began.
The Junior Lacrosse match between
North and South held the crowd till the
noon hour. It was a good, clean game
and well played throughout. Although
the advantage was with the North from
the first, the teams were sufficiently
well matched to hold interest to the
end. Scores were made in each quarter,
the result standing 4 to 3 in favor of the
North. Of the former, I. Coote landed
three goals and H Henderson one,
while 0. Bell, A. Jackson and Geo.
Knight scored for the South Some of
the juniors are very promising stick
handlers and will be heard from again.
At 1 o'clock the High School lined up
for a football game against the t oqualee-
tza boys. The play was creditable and the
teams so evenly matched that neither
scored and the prize money had to be
divided. While the game was in progress the boys'and girls' races afforded
good entertainment for a side crowd.
Chief interest, however, centered in
the Senior Lacrosse Match between
Bellingham and Chilliwack, which had
been anticipated as the feature of the
day. This game opened fast and furious aud unfortunately developed
rough play early in the first quarter.
The trouble originated with two members of tha visiting team and met with
too ready response *n the part of some
of our own boys, who reciprocated with
Donnybrook hospitality. Lusier, of
Bellingham, was assigned to the fence
by Referee Samson Charlie and the
temperature dropped a few points.
Just here it should be remarked that
such shouts from the spectators as
"Give him the stick," "Hit him over
the head," and the like, are neither in
the interests of good feeling nor good
play. If such a spirit is persisted in, it
will brutalize and eventually destroy
Canada's national game here as it has
done in many other places.
Despite minor unpleasantness, however, the game was fairly good. Chilliwack put up stronger play than many
of their friends anticipated,
and had their combination work
been as good as in their recent
practice they would have easily beaten
their apponents. The ball hovered more
than three quarters of the time near
Bellingham's goal but only found its
way into the net once, while the visitors
scored twice. In the last quarter
the spectators lost interest because
of the evident determination of
the winners to rag the game. Repeatedly the ball was thrown off the field by
Bellingham players and the referee did
not interfere. Happily for mutual respect and good feeling rough and unfair
playing was only indulged in by a few
on each side. Casualties were limited to
a few bruises and abrasions, and no
barriers should remain to friendly meets
in the future.
The baseball match between the High
School girls and All Comers was largely
a fiasco, because of the inability of the
All Comers to come. Four innings ended with a score of 38 to 4 in favor of
the High School.
Amends were made for this part of
the programme by the introduction of
some bronco busting by a Dakota
plainsman and Ed Allison, in which it
was fully demonstrated that both
broncos and busters were onto
their jobs. More precaution should
be taken, however, with such exhibitions for the protection of helpless
women and children. It was nothing
short of a miracle that somebody waa
not seriously hurt by the first performance yesterday.
Music and dancing claimed a large and
merry crowd in the evening at the
Agricultural Hall, where those with
terpichorean taste tarried well into the
night, thus rounding out a full day of
enjoyment.
The gate receipt* for the day were
$204 00, which will leave the boys a nice
balance on the right side.
