repetitive rhythm.

l, nr Sir: Vour editorials
das and F flay dealing with the local
oinii service in de reference to a report brought in by a special committee of the New Westminster Progressive Assoctatli n and we regret thai
tie fore making reference to this report
you did not take the trouble to read
It over.
Tlie special committee was asked
to report on a specific matter dealing
with the mail service as affecting our
local hanking clearings. Al the same
time, however, they were requested to
look Into the matter of mail box collections. I
In dealing with the latter point, the
report d'f the committee read as follows: Trie fhe collections from outly-
:ng mall boxes. Tests have been made
from time to time and so far the results have been satisfactory; but if
the members of the executive can fur-
'lish specific instances of the delay
the pest muster will he happy to deal
, with them."
Your two editorials furniFh us with
i the  instances  that  wc  were  looking
for and had we heen notified of them
at  the time we would have been glad
to hav�� taken them up.
As   your  are   doubtless   aware   we
I have   the   Immediate   prospect  of  onr
| post office being raised to a first class
i offlr-e  which   will   enable   Postmaster
McDonald   to  secure   adequate  help.

want a ��� toot bridge for In a municipality of this kind?
Councillor K. Martin���We are not
asking tor a bridge at all. We are unt
asking u Blngle thing from the G.N.R,
A tram line has been promised across
the Brunette river, one mile up the
North road and wo have the road right
there for It. We have a fil foot road
and if we have to wait for tlie G.N.R,
to do all this work we may have to
go four years without the tramway.
All we have to do at present is to raise
ih" bridge eight feet. This matter ton-
cerns the 0 N. Ft. altogether and they
want something for nothing.
Benefit of G.  N.  R.
Mr Kilmer II is not for the benefit of the municipality they are asking this; it is for the benefit of the
0,   V   1!
Mr Mounce deprecated imposing
harsh terms upon the company. Where,
would ihey find, he asked, a 60 foot
road utilized In this province other
than in Ihe cities. They should not.

Mr   Kilmer    The road Is there now.

Already eight days of the three weeks

After some further discussion Councillors Martin and Atkins were appointed to meet and confer with the
New Westminster, Burnaby and l'ort
Moody councils with a view to joint
acl ion In the matter.
The clerk was also Instructed to
wire the railway commissioners to notify the council the date and place of

l'luying u brilliant game of aoccer
nnd with thoughts of wiping out the
defeat which robbed them of the
league championship, always before
Ihem, the Sapperton soccer team1 defeated lhe Hankers In the seml-fitigl
for the City cup Saturday afternoon
and now stand an excellent chance of
lifting the trophy agalnBt the City
eleven.    The final score waB 1-0. '
Although the stiff breeze dlscon-'-
Oerted the placements considerably
the brand of soccer dished out at Sapperton Park was pleasing to the large
crowd In attendance, who felt Well
satisfied with the play, the teams and
the result, for the concensus of opinion was that the better team won.
Twenty-five minutes of play in the
first half passed by when Chlel accepted a centre from the right wing,
evaded two men and slammed the hall
into the rigging, giving the Bankers'!
custodian no chance to make a clear-!
That was the only score of the en* |
tire game although the Hankers goal
was   In  danger  on  several  occasions 1
by the Sapperton forwards.
In the second half the east enders
played ten men against eleven. Robinson retiring from the game through
Injuries. At that, tlieir goal tender |
was never tested throughout the 45
minutes, which speaks well for the]
Sapperton defence.
The Sapperton-Clty game In  the final for the cup wlll probably be staged
'��� on Sapperton Park next Saturday af- j
i ternoon.

NOTICE Is hereby given tbat Jacob
R. Coon did on the first day of April,
1913, retire from the partnership carried on between Silas Fader, Jacob
U. Coon and Frederick T. C. Lever
under the name and style of Investors' Investment Company In the
City of New Westminster in the Province of British Columbia.
Dated ai New Westminster, B.C..
this 3rd day of May, 1913,
According to a recent report issued
by tho United States department of
agriculture, girls are evincing more interest in farming Ihan boys, and this
occupation, so far as fruit and poultry
farming is concerned, is lieciiinlng essentially a feminine pursuit. Sei
eral year agso, In order to Interest
boys In agricultural matters, the department successfully organized corn-
rising clubs In country district.
But the success of these clubs has
heen totally eclipsed by the wonderful
success of similar clubs organized for
girls, at which the art of raising fruit
and vegetables, canning and preserving, and placing tlio produce on the
markets,haa been thoroughly tauRht.
More than 25,000 girls are now enrolled In theBe clubs and the training
they receive fits them to earn their
livelihood aa expert growers and preservers, makes of them capable helpmates for pioneer farmers and keeps
them from crowding into the towns to
lake up unhealthy poorly-paid labor.
Telephone Girls.
The Italian women telephonlstB, who
for some time, past have been conducting nn agitation against compulsory resignation upon marriage,
ire likely to see their efforts crowned
with success, After many petit ions
and representations to the authorities.
a commission was dually appointed
to consider the advisability of removing the ban. and the question of motherhood relative to the conditions under which the women work was thoroughly investigated. The commission
at last decided by a substantial ma-
pority in favor of retaining married
women in the telephone service, and
the new ruling now awaits the consent
of the chamber.
One telling point In favor of married telephoriifitH and one that the
women themselves laid great stresB
upon, is the fact that no marriage bar
exists for women telegraph operators,
while teachers and women clerks employed In the municipal and state de-
parlmnts may also retain their posts
after marriage.
German  Babies.
The outcry raised in Germany
aginst the decrease In the birthrate,
has been somewhat caused by the publication of official statistics, Bhowlng
that 39 more babies in every 1,000 live
through thilr flrst year than was the
case ten years ago.
In large cities the number saved
reaches a much higher figure, a gratifying result of the successful campaigns for "baby saving" organizations through which have been established milk depots, baby clinics, free

The American tent caterpillar constructs the large silken tents In May

Upon tlie nearby foliage. This species
Is found most commonly In orchards,
although It also infests various shade
trees. The forest tent caterpillar spins
no tent, but feeds In groups of several
scores upon the foliage und rests nt

chiefly upon deciduous forest trees,

travellers visited the town and stayed at a certain hotel they were fre-
quently found dead in the morning,
having   been   suffocate!)   and   robbed.
In vain the local police disguised
themselves as servants and frequented the hotel. The crimes continued.
Finally a detective from St. Petersburg was called in. He visited the
hotel and examined the final bed

There is perhaps no vegetable
grown in Canada that is more easllv
raised than the cabbage. It does well
in almost any soil provided with n I
reasonable quantity of moisture and
manure: it thrives from the most
southerly part of lhe provinces of Ontario to Dawson City in the north and
from the Atlantic to the Pacific coasts.
The cabbage does best in a moist,
cool soil, aniiresponds well to heavy
rertilizlng and gow! tillage. .Market
garileners have learped not only this
but also lhat there are great dirTer* j
eences tn the value ot different varieties. It has been found by actual experiment that It is possible to have
more than $200 per acre difference in
ithe value cf the crop of a poor and a
I good strain.
For twenty-fcur wars the horticul-
! tural division of the Central experimental farm has carried on variety
and cultural experiments with cabbage and has learned much of value on
the subject. This work has been carried on for the benefit of the public
who are fully entitled to the lessons
gathered during this long period
Years after year, results of thia
work have been published in the annual report of the experimental farms,
but such references have necessarily
bi en of a fragmentary nature.
In order to treat the subject of cabbage growing fully In a single publication, the Dominion horticulturist. Mr.
VV. T. Macoun, has brought out Pamphlet No. 11 cf the Central experimen-
| lal farm, which takes the subject up
under the heads of the soil and Its
preparation, varieties, sowing the seed
uud raising the plants, plantiiigfi cultivation, harvesting, and control ol insects and lungus diseases.
A section is also devoted to the culture or the cauliflower, which Ib stated to be more difficult to grow than
the cabbage.
Early cabbage Ms -said to be usually
more profitable to grow than late cabbage, bnt requires more skill to get a
satisfactory ep-p. Coed early sort*

John James Audubon, the eminent
ornthologlst, whose birthday Is now
celebrated as bird day, wub bof-n In
N'ew Orleans, May 4, 17S0. He was
the son of a French admiral, and
spent mot-t of his mature life in the
Hudy of birds, exploring the forests,
wildernesses and mountains of North
America, from Labrador and Canada
to Florida. The knowledge gained of
the feathered inhabitants of these remote sections he embodied in his nun
iiinenl.il work. "The Birds ot America"
which he both wrote and illustrated. I
Although born in Lousiaana, then |
b French colony, and educated partly
in Pennslyvania and partly in I'aris,
Audubon was n citizen of the world,
and all the bird-lovers of the globe
now do    him    reverence.    Ile    spent*
many yean. In London, Edinburgh and
Paris, where be wae    greeted    with
every   mark   of  honor   by   Humboldt,!
Cuvler, and other    great    naturalists. I
His latter years were spent largely in
New York, whi re he died in 1861.
Tlie Audubon Society whieh now has

a number of others thai, are carrying
on a useful work.   One of there is Un-
American   nird-nandiiig    Association,
which has as its principal object the
study ot migratory birds, and this has
resulted In the discovery of many in-
ti resting racts about the travels ot the
feathered   tourists.     The  importation i

Three thousand years ago.
So long earth hid secure in her dark
The  fragile,  molded  clay;
I'nburled   now,   it   holds  thc   fleeting
Of a brief summer's day.
And breathes out visions to the dusk,
that hover
Flame-like,  upon  the wall,���
Beallty and old-time gladness, passing
While the red  roees fall.
Rose leaves which patter like the rhythmic feet,
Of dancing girls, who glide
Through sunlit halls, where kings and
chieftains  meet.
When spears are laid aBide.
Peace crowned  tbe girlB with roses,

Pair  ancient  ve.se!   and  raised,  with

Dead brotherhood anew.
Fcrgotten  peace!   and long  forgotten
Peoples and  kings are gone
UtiEt trom the wheels of time's unresting car:
Only the vase lives on.
Perfect as when,  within  the    shady
It cooled  from  summer's  glow:
Who would have   deemed   the   frail

Mrs. Lillian Martindale, of Nanalmo, expressed her satisfaction with
Friday's fele In the above words on
Baturday afternoon, on the eve of her
departure for her home In the Coal
Olty, As one of the Judges of the
dpcorsted automobiles In the parade,
Mrs. Martindale had anticipated a
harder task Ihan fell to her lot, but
whatever disillusionment may hnve
been occasioned by the limited number of be flowered machines, waa scon
forgotten  when she reached Queens
park nnd witnessed the revels of the
thousands of children. As she expressed It to on�� of the members of
the committee:
"We will make an effort lo Introduce some of these attractions In
Nanalmo. but I do not think we will
be able to approach the excellence of
vour celebration for many years,
Would you be able to loan us the
music of the various dances ? nnd
where do you get those bars of chocolate for the children ? and how
much do they cost ?"
Having charge of the children's
pan or the big 24th of May celebration In Nanaimo, Mrs. Martindale was
naturally Interested In anything that
would tend to make the afTair a bigger success, and to tills end she was
given all possible Information by
members of the committee. Bandmaster Rushton has promised to for
ward Mrs. Martindale the required
inrormation concerning music, and ar
rangements wen' completed Saturday
by the Pacific Chocolate company for
the supplying or 1600 bars or chocolate for the Nanalmo celehrationo.
It  ls worthy  of mention  that   Mrs.
i Martindale  is a  daughter  of   Mrs.  J.

active   part  In   the  May   Day   festlvl-
