'On the Field of Honor'
The publishers of The Family
Herald and Weekly Star, Montreal, are making a strong bid
for that beautiful picture, full of
pathos, entitled "On the Field of
Honor." It is assumed the publisher of the Family Herald have
in mind using it as a presentation
plate. If that is so there is a
great treat in store for the readers ef the Family Herald and
Weekly Star this aurtumn. In
past years The Family Herald of
Montreal has been noted not only
for the wonderful excellence of
that Journal but for many beautiful pictures it has purchased for
its readers. The Family Herald
has a name for succeeding in
anything it undertakes, and we
feel sure if it is humanly possible to secure "On the Field of
Honor" that the publishers will
succ(ej in getting i". "On the
Field of Honor" is attracting
widespread attention in Europe.
A meeting of the Lillooet Citizens Patriotic Committee was
held at Dr. Christie's office on
Monday evening last.
The total amount collected by
Mr. W. Adams to sefray expenses attached to the visit of the
Cadets was $92.50 and all accounts were passed and ordered
settled from this fund, the following having been paid:

The committee wish to thank
all those who helped in various
ways to make the visit of the
Australian Cadets to Lillooet so
successful.
A statement of the takings at
the entertainment was read as
follows:
By sale of tickets 120.50
Cash takings at the door     64.50
$185.00
This amount was handed to
Mr. Arthur Coyne, Secretary for
the Cadets, in full, the committee having unanimously decided
that they should take the total
proceeds.
As a hardware clerk stepped
forward to wait on her she trained her guileless, blue eyes upon
him and said:
"I wish you would give me a
sponge bath, please."
The clerk was for a moment
nonplussed, but at last managed
to say:
"Do you prefer hot or cold
water, miss?"
"That" said"the well informed
young man, "is s gartersnake."
"That little thing!" exclaimed
the modest maiden, incredulously; "why it's ever so much too
small!"
Vioce — John Willie ! Come
here.
No, dear reader! We do not
know whether the baptism, referred to by the Australian Cadet,
is to be Universally adopted, or
where the church is he spake of
is.
AUSTRALIAN  CADETS   VISIT
LILLOOET
Lillooet was awakened on September 17 and 18 perhaps as never before in its history. The occasion being the visit of the Australian Cadets and their famous
brass band,
The town was decorated with
bunting and flags were flying
from e/ery conceivable point of
vantage, the citizens being in a
high state of expectancy, nor
were they disappointed, for the
cadets were above even their
highest expectations.
Upon arrival at the P.G.E.
Lillooet station, the cadets were
received by a deputation of citizens, and brought in autos to the
town, where they were received
right royally by the citizens and
children, (who lined the route)
and cheer after cheer went up
which made the surrounding hills
and valleys ring again and again.
After the partaking of dinner at
the hotels the cadets brass band
paraded the streets, discoursing
sweet music the while. The boys
were eventually taken to their
billets for the night.
On Saturday morning the Cadets were taken in autos to Seton
lake, and after three hours sightseeing in that vicinity, returned
to town for luncheon.
At 2.30 p.m. the Cadet brass
band of 30 pieces, fell in opposite
the hotels, and with colors flying and the band playing martial
airs, marehed to the tent where
a civic reception was given them.
Dr. H. Christie, chairman for
the occasion, opened the proceedings with a short but appropriate
address, after which the Lillooet
school children sang "O Canada."
Mr. J. S. Bell was then called
upon, and very ably delivered an
address of welcome to the Australian Cadets. "The Best Old
Flag on Earth," was then sung
by the children. Much credit is
due Miss Grant for the proficiency
of the children.
Lieut. Simons, responded, and
thanked the citizens for their
open-hearted reception, and that
they would remember Lillooet
for years to come.
Mr. W. T. Bridge gave an address of welcome to the Visitors.
Among othtr things he emphasized the vital necessity of "cooperation" and a "better trade
relationship" between Vancouver
and Lillooet.
Alderman Woodside, represent-
in Vancouver City, responding,
and in no uncertain tone stated
that the trip over the P.G.E. railway was a revelation, and that
he was greatly surprised by our
fruit and vegetable products,
also that he has not obtained his
impressions from the "exhibit"
(now on view) but that he had
received them from the orchards
and fields, which he had visited
personaly. "You can certainly
yrow things here," was an emphasized remark, and I will see
to it that the conditions here are
brought before the right authorities.
Colonel Whyke, representing
the West Vancouver Council and
the North Vancouver Beard of
Trade, in a brief but very appropriate address, among other
things told his audienee that he
was aware of what could be grown
in the Lillooet District, and that
they had an eye on the Lillooet
produce.
Other visitors who spoke during the afternoon were: —Mr.
Lightfoot, of the Vancouver Rotary Club, and Mr. J. R. Davidson, Industrial Commissioner.
All agreed that the trip into
Lillooet was a revelation, and
that they intended to spend their
vacations here in the future.
The Cadet brass band was in
attendance and payed inspiring
music at intervals.

CADETS'   CONCERT
In the evening the Australian
Cadets presented a high class
vocal and instrumental entertainment, and for three solid hours
tihe audience listened to the best
concert that has ever been staged
in Lillooet.
The programme consisted of
twenty different numbers, embracing the latest comic and sentimental songs, sketches, tableaux, gymnastic display, and
last, but not least, the Famous
Cadet Brass Band played selections and martial music.
The various numbers were of a
more or less patriotic character,
the stage being suitably decorated for the occasion.
The programme was so well
balanced that it would be hard to
pick out the brightest stars of
the evening, every number being
eiuhuiastically encored.
The Band at the close of the
evening's entertainment played
the "Allies National Airs" and
"Canada for Ever", the latest
military march, composed by Dr.
Harold Betteridge and dedicated
to the 72nd Highlanders.
The playing of the Nat ional
Anthem brought to a close one
of the most enthuiastic and soul-
stiring periods ever spent in
Lillooet.
The object of this tour is to
bring the British Domains into
closer touch with each other.
If Lillooet can be taken as an example of the result, we can feel
assured that the endeavor will
meet with the great success it
deserves.
NOW!
Now is the time for the local
"growers" and "busines men"
to "organize" as never before,
so as to be able to meet any deputations that may be sent here
from the coast cities, and present
to them the conditions as they
are, and not as a few "wallflowers'' think they are.
Now is your opportunity. The
opportunity you have been waiting for for the past twenty or
thirty years. We have some of
finest fruit and vegetables ever
produced. Ship to the markets
and show the public that we
have the goods.

Pioneer Dies at Vancouver
Hospital
Vancouver. — Michael J. McCarty, Cariboo pioneer, died this
week of pleuro-pneumonia at St.
Paul's Hospital after an illness of
three days.
Always in robust health, Mr.
McCarty's sudden death comes
as a distinct shock to his many
friends, not only in Vancouver,
but in the upper country also.
He has been staying at the Bur-
rard Hotel for several weeks.
Mr. McCarty was born July 4,
1849, at St. John, N.B., and at
the age of 13 started for the
west by way cf sailing ship a-
round the Horn. He landed in
1862 at Victoria, and la.ter he
went to .Lillooet, where he established a trading post in the early
days.
Following this he went to the
137-mile post of the Cariboo road,
and at this point he became po-
sossed of a ranch of about 200C
acres, and went into the farming
business on a large scale for the
early days. He has made thai
place his home continuously for
forty years.
He leaves a large family, four
sons and five daughters.
Mrs. McCarty, whose maiden
name was Anna Felker. died
many years ago. She was born
at Laramie while her parents
were crossing the plains.
The funeral of Mr. McCarty
will take place at Williams Lake,
B.C., in the family burial plot.
