The inland towns of British

ampin evidences, lhat a chango is
about to take place. Tho wonderful resources of the country aro
gradually becoming known, and
tho reward lhat lies in wait for
those who develop Ihem is so
certain Ibat capitalists can no
longer afford to let the good op-
porlunities pass. Roul estate investments iu the towns will
return a good interest, and moro
eppooially when tbo value of the

uiary lo such towns, and Ihe

como in for a good Bbaro of

promises to bo good, tho bulk o!
the output of llie factory will bo

Manitoba, whero a ready market
t,waits it. The value of the wood
for doois, sashes, ptinnelliug, etc.,
is well established, and eflortS
will bo put lorih to keep the
supp'y up to tho (IciiuiikI. In the
development of tbo rich minornl
resources of tho district, however, its prosperity chiefly depends, nnil the out'ooK in tL-ib

Though the money market is not

To meet tho vvanls of this travel

The Ull amending llio Land

The limit is placed at 010 acres,
with the object of preventing the

Mr, Mara though possessod ol

Thero was a gnol turn out at the
school house ou Wednesday evening,
the occasion being a musical and
dramatio entertainment in aid of the
or^au fund of the Methodist church.
Something good was expected and
the audience was not disappointed,
tho entertainment proving a decided
success in every particular, and certainly ono of tho most pleasing ever
held in town.
By request Dr, Brown of Westminster acted as chairman, mid performed the duties of the ollice very
Tiie programme was opened with
a sleighiilg (flee by the church choir,
which was given in good style. The

siderublo ability as a reciter iu her
rendition cf "No. 1," aud won a
generous applause, Miss Hettie Lee

Smack iu School," and wou a storm
of applause, The comic song "Sho
Trotted Mo off to Church," wus
given iu fine style by Mr. Wm. Lee,
who received the first encore, giving
"Where Did You Get That Hat."
Vocal quartettes wero then given by
Mrs. Dickey, .Mrs. Smith nnd Messrs,
Barber and Creelnian, and Mrs.
Uoursier, Mrs. Cash and Messrs.
Coursier and King. Mis. Kelles,
a general favorite with a lievelstoko
audience, sang very sweetly "Killar-
uoy," and an encore was insisted ou,
Oue of the best numbers of the
eiit.-rlaiiiment, tho comic quartelto
"Call John," concluded the first
part of the progrmme, It was given
by Mrs. Dickey, Mrs. Smith; and
Messrs. Barber and Creelnian, and
caused any amount of amusement.
Tue paits were all tukeii well while
the acting in it was tlrst-clas's,
Tho quartette "1'ro l'buudo Uasso"
was the opening number of the
second part, and iu it Mrs. Creel-
iuau, Miss McLuuohlin, uuo Messrs.
lliilber and King scored a decided
s.iccess, ami wero ounstriiined to
repent it before the audience would
be sutislied. Miss Irvine contributed
a taking reading iu 'The liatblul
mau," the portrayal of wbosa
blunders provoked eoulinuousluugh-
icr, Guy Barber, sang in capital
voice, "The 01,1 llome Dowu on tho
farm," and won a hearty applause,
The comic duet ".Matrimonial

was ependidly given and caught
tlio house. The choir sang "Allow
Mo to Move a Vote ol Thuuks," alter
which tho farco "Two Heads aro
Better Than One," was called.
During a wait for ono of the performers Master George Boyle gave
an overture on tbo/uiouth orgsu,
which was evidently appreciated,
The farce was dually placed on
tho boards. Tho selection was a
ciipitnl one for tho cast, and tbo

Mr. If. N. Ooursicr as Strange, a

The rates aro to be framed with the

As yet, ho said, wc havo not decided
positively as to the rales to be levied
but they will bo such as to admit of

termination of tho company is, said
Mr. Brown, to mako such rates as

overate with ns in this respect. Wc
