It seems that our comment of yesterday upon the
mail delivery and postal matters in New Westminster has
caused quite a little flutter in the breasts of individual "
members of the postal department here. Now it should
vbe clearly understood that Thc News is dealing with the
system itself.
The Progressive association sub-committee has stated
that all is as well as it can possibly be made. We do not
think so, and we feel that we are voicing the opinion of a
great many residents here in taking that attitude.
Regarding the instance we quoted yesterday, all our
facts are incontrovertible. We have a few more todav. I
supplied by the postal authorities. We learn that the last;
collection made from the box near the Westminster Trust
building is at 5:5 p.m. More, anyone may gather from
the scarcely legible scrawl on the box itself that there are I
thret? collections made daily at this point, the others being!
at 7:25 a.m. and 12:15 p.m.

Queen of Spring, and Queen of May-
Queen of all, we crown today
On the oval's velvet green,
Where, with graceful step and mien,
Children dance around thy throne,
Bind thee with a rainbow zone.
Spring's fair crown wo give to thee;
And her banner, floating free,
Shall wave across the bright blue sky
To where the sunset ripples lie,���
Emblem of the happy day,
When first we felt thy gentle sway:
Tendered to thv youthful hand,
The throne and crown of our fair land.
And while the months are passing by,
And summer's sun fills all the sky,
We'll think of this, our happiest day,
When first we crowned thee Queen of May
Amid the throng of dancers bright,
Like dawn triumphing over night.
May thy reign be one of joy,
One that time cannot destroy,
Hut keep forever and a day,
The time when thou wast Queen of May.

With more money for proper training

the fastest and gainest pugilists of
his  time.
Jim jeffriis fought his first professional battle with Hank 20 years

Hank's best fighting days were
spent in California, and his principal
income waa derived from acting as

The Craving for Adventure.
The   public   has   been   alarmed   of
late  at  tbe   dumber   of young  girls
who have  figured  among the  reported missing.    In a proportion of these
eases lhere may be real cause for apprehension,  bul   the   pollce  are  satisfied  that In  the  majority  the  disappearance la Intentional, being the outcome of u craving on the part of a
modern young girl for adventure,
These adventures are naturally surrounded with grave dangera for those
. who  take  part   in   them.     But   more
often  than  not  the   missing  are  dls-
i covered   and   placed   in   the   care   of
their   relatives.     In   order   to    avoid
very  Juat admonition  the culprit of-
, ten   resorts  to   inventing  an  "abductor."
Neither la thla an entirely modern
Early In the eighteenth century a
girl named Elisabeth Canning dlaap-
peared from her home and evaded all
efforts to dlBcover her. She returned after a month. Her atory was
that the glpslea had stolen her. For
this certain gipsies In the disirict
were brought to trial, and two of
them were sentenced to death, After
further Investigations pending the execution they were reprieved and Elizabeth herself waa charged with perjury. She waa found guilty and sen-
tenced to transportation for a period
of aeven year8.
; It waB suggested then thnt the girl
fabricated the story In order to avert
punishment There seems little
doubt that neurotic young glrlB of
: today who leave home in a stato of
hysteria resort to a similar plan to
avert  parental  wrath.
Sick of Formality.
An interesting ease of past years,
In which boredom with the conventionalities of society caused a man
to vanish waa that of Waring, who
figured in a poem of Robert Browning, entitled "What's Become of Waring?" Waring was a great figure in
j the social life of the time.
One day he was absent from his
usual haunts. He was never heard of
nor seen by friends for aome twenty
years. Then B friend discovered him
by chance abroad, and Waring ex-1
plained that he had simply become
sick  to  death    of    the    restrictions
which  aoclal  etiquette and  formality
placed upon hla movements,
An   M.   P.  Who   Vanished.
Another celebrated dlaappearance
of the past wns that of Mr. Jaspar
I'yne, M. P. for West Waterford, who
took a ticket for Ireland and
never Been or beard of again. Tbe
disappearance of Crlmaldi'B brother
waa  equally  myBtcrloua.
Grlmaldl was playing at Drury
Lane In the year 1908, Hla brother
called for hlm at the atage door and
together they went to the green room
Grlm&ldl left hlm there for a moment
to talk to Bomo friends. When he
returned hla brother had gone. Grltn-
aldl never aaw  him  ngaln.
Ab the yeara have pasaoa It haa become n much more difficult task for
people to cut themselves entirely
adrift from the circle in which they
have lived. j
WlrelcBB telegraphy, better pollco
organization, and, above all. the newa
paper pictures have made the path
of those who are anxious to dlsap- j
pear no euay matter. More people
are discovered today In their efforts
to vanish than waa the eaae a few
yeara ago.
TlmoB of great disaster afford an
exceptional opportunity for the per-
aon with the ambition to atari life
all over again. Many more people

It   Ib   well   known   that   at   certain
/seasons of the year there is a wide dlf-
separate j f,,renc���  between  the  price  received
for eggB by the farmer in the country store and the price paid by the
consumer in the city.   This difference
la not nearly bo marked in the Bprlng
of lhe year an lt Is In the late summer,
fall  and  winter.    In  other  words,  as
the quality of ordinary farm egga becomes   more   uncertain   the   premium
placed  on   new-laid   circle    egga    Increases.    While during the spring of
the   year   prices     received   by   circle
| members   may    not    greatly   exceed
those paid in the local Btore, it Ib a
fact   that   for  the  eggs   produced   In
| the month of December laat year tbe
I majority of circlea In the provinces of
Ontario and  Quebec received a price
of from 45 to 60 cents a dozen.
A   limited   number  of  circles   will,
no doubt, be able to take advantage
t the rapidly growing select trade in
ii"   larger  Canadian  cities,  but  rrom
the ract that the wholesale egg deal-
rs  In  Ontario and  Quebec  have  recently adopted a new system or buying on  a  basis or quality, it is likely
tlnn   the product of the  majority of
circles will  find  Its way to the consumer through the more recently es-
abllshi il channels of trade.
The live stock branch stands ready
and willing to help on the egg circle
i i.ivemetit in every possible way. Ot-
llcet-s or this branch are now in the
field, and there is available a quan-
Tity or literature, including outlines of
��� institutions, by-laws, etc., dealing
vith the work, copiea of which may he

Equal Heat In Every Part of
The Gumgy-6xford Oven
���. Every woman well knows thc bad resttlts from
constantly opening the oven door to move a cake '
to ahother shelf or turn a pan of biscuits.   Often
the shifting or the cold air striking  in proves
utterly disastrous to her baking.
The Divided Flue on the Gurney-Oxford range
equally distributes the heat to all parts of the oven
which is regulated to thc exact temperature required by means cf thc Economizer.
This wonderful time-labor-and-money-saving
device controls thc heat cf the whole range.
It is worked by a small handle which moves
around a scries of six notches. The housewife
soon learns that by moving the handle to No. 1 she
has a very hot oven, to No. 3 a moderate oven,
and that No. 6 checks the fire so as to burn
scarcely any coal while Lhe goes out shopping On
her return she simply moves the handle to the
number that gives the required heat and the result
is prompt.
Of inestimable value also is the Broiler Attachment and thc Special Grate.
But a most delightful feature about the Gurney-
Oxford is its constant bright and shining appear-
It has a smooth polished top that never requires black lead and is thoroughly sanitary.
For years stove experts have been working out
woman's problem in the kitchen and the Gurney-
Oxford range is the solution.
