The Delta creamery building

The weather this week has been
exceedingly warm, and very favorable for the growing crops. Hay

Mas. Isaac Johnston and Mrs.
Jas. Johnston, of Mud Ray, were
in Cloverdale on Monday, and like
most people think the location is
very pleasant. Their business was
in connection with a celebration on
12th of July, Many Surrey ladies
take a deep interest in the affairs of
the Orange Order.
While Mr, A. Richardson was
standing at the door of Richmond
& Co's. store last Monday morning
ibout nine o'clock a large bear
crossed oyer the railway track and
back again, a couple of hundred
yards north of the town. Rears
have often  been   noticed crossing
ie truck in the same locality during the past couple of years.
Ox Thursday the 4th July the
Methodist Sabbath schools of Lang'
ley and Cloverdale, with the I. O.
G. T. of Langley, will have a picnic in a very pleasant grove a half-
mile west of Murray's Corners, opposite Mr. Trigg's place. A cordial
invitation is extended to everyone
who feels like uniting with the
above, to come and take an active
part in the pic-nic. Teams will be
provided to take all Surrey friends
who have not conveyances of their
own, to start from the Methodist
Church at Cloverdale at 8 a. in.
A PEW day's ago, in Victoria, 22
boxes of California apples, which
were badly infected by codlin
moth larvae) were condemned and
destroyed. They were part of this
season's erop and had just been received from California. A few applications of this medicine will put
a stop to the shipping into this
Province of infected fruit, and the
benefit to local growers will not
only be in tending to keep the orchards clean, but in protecting the
market. In this regard, the Horticultural Board is doing good service.
On the day ot the pic-nic last
week, the be»s at Surrey Centre
held a pic-nic of their own. An
immense swarm issued from one of
Mr, Boothroyd s hives, and formed
in three separate clusters. Scarcely
had these been secured when one
of Mr. Churchlund's hives sent out
an unusually large swarm, and
this separated Into two clusters,
which Were also successfully re-
bived. It is ii very unusual Ibing
for swnriiiing bees to divide Into
sections) and the bees appear to
have been having a Special jollification.
Ox Saturday evening, which Is
the regular  meeting  night of the
Oddfellows here, till;  Indies of Ihe
Presbyterian ohnrch hud prepared I
an  exquisite little ice-cream festi-'
val as a surprise for the brethren, I
in   token  of appreciation  of the (
kindliness of Iho  lodge in giving
the Hall for fhe recent entertainment.    The evening proved   ex- [
ceedingly   wet   and stormy,  and |
only four Oddfellows put in'an appearance, much to the disappointment of the ladies.   However, those
'or whom the feast  was prepared
failing    attendance,   guests   were
gathered   in  from   the  highways
and byways, and a good time was
had after 'all.'
In regard to the big Orange celebration nt Victoria on 12lh July,
Ibe following are points lluil will

certainly very Inviting and a good
contingent from Surrey is hoped
for. Excursionists leaving here to
catch the steamer in the morning
would find it best to go to Ladners,
as there would be no means of
crossing the river at Westminster
at so early an hour.
The trailing blackberry is the
best wild fruit that grows on the
coast district of B. C, and is a
great favorite for preserving. Last
year abundant supplies wore
gathered by the people of the
neighborhood at the Royal City
camp, four miles south of here.
The vine thrives on a poor soil,
and grows naturally in the clearings before being plowed up,
Mu. W. 1). Bhown, of Hall's
Prairie, was going in to town on
Wednesday, and when opposite
the house of Mr. McCauley, on the
Yale road, he noticed that the roof
was on fire. Tho alarm was immediately given, and with the assistance of some neighbors the fire
was extinguished. Mr. McCauley
and the family were away from
home at the time.
Monday will be the anniversary
of Canadian Confederation. There
will be a big celebration in Vancouver, Dominion Day being the
favorite holiday of that city, but
money is too scarce to permit of a
large attendance from this neighborhood. Here the day will be
passed quietly.
The Surrey Council is offering a
reward of .$25 for the conviction of
the parties who recently mutilated
animals at Hall's Prairie. The
action is wise, if only to show that
sucli viciousness will not lie permitted to pass with impunity,
Ox Monday, a four year old boy,
son of Mr. Jason Allard, Langley,
fell Into a well near the hoiisc, and
although the accident was observed
and immediate measures taken,
life was extinct before the child

Douglas, just this side ni the

Indian known as I'owiehan Jimmy chased his father-in-law, Boston Tom, w'ilb an axe. Tbe latter

Creamery Meeting,
The public meeting held in the
Town Hall, Surrey Centre, on Saturday last, to consider the advisability of organizing a creamery
company) was very well attended
hy interested farmers, notwithstanding the untimely hour. Mr.
Daniel Johnston, of Mud Bay. was
appointed to the chair, and Mr. A.
Philip, tho convener of the meeting)
was then called upon to explain
the business in hand. Mr. Philip's
proposition was to establish a central creamery, to be supplied wilh
cream from stations conveniently
icaled in the surrounding Country
where the farmers would bring
their milk to have it separaleil, returning home with the skimmed
milk. Mr. Philip presented the
rosy side of the proposed scheme,
and a general discussion followed
in which those who took part manifested a keen appreciation of the
merits nud risks of the proposal
under consideration.
Finally a committee was appointed to decide upon what further action should be taken, The
committee) of which Mr. D. Johnston is convener, consists of: I),
Johnston and E. Loney, Mud Bay;

A FAIRY TALE.
Once upon a time, lu faraway Persia,
there lived a merchant who hnd a very
beautiful parrot, lie had bought the bird
of a trader froinlliiidoostau. He kept It in
u fine large cage and took tlie greatest possible care of It. Hut I lie parrot pined lor
his native land and often implored his muster to let him nut so that he could go free,
The merchant, however, always refused, as
the bird was a very wise unu, and he valued
it exceedingly,
One night the parrot heard tho merchant
laying plans Tor a journey to Illudoostnu,
undlhccunuing bird laid a plan uf lilsnwu,
so that he, ton, might go there uu his own
Recount. The next day the merchant tuld
his friends what he pro posed to dn and
lisked them what presents they would like
him tu bring back frum the wonderful laud
nf jewels and elephants, whither he was
piing. Bo each of them chose Something
they would he pleased to have him get for
them. The merchant then asked the pnr-
rot whnt present be would like. The parrot answered:
"Dear master, 1 only want you to take a
message from mo to any other parrots you
may meet in HlndooHtiin. (live them my
L'oinpllmenls, Tell them I am shut up in
n big cage here, but that 1 do nut forget
them. Tell them also I would like their
advice and instruction.   Tbat Is all."
The merchant promised faithfully to deliver the message, 1 bough he wondered
somewhat at the words in which he was to
address the parrots, Then hu set out un
bin journey tu Hiudnostan.
In due time lie arrived there safely, uud
for awhile be wus so busy ho forgot ubout
the parrot's message, Hot one day as he
was pausing through au open field be saw
several parrots iu a tree overhead. Then
he remembered what he had promised tn
his own parrot, and stopped hlslmrseunder
the tree. He called lu the parrots und delivered the message to them, taking cure tu
give It exactly us his parrot bail worded it.
The parrels above hliu listened very attentively, uud for awhile after they seemed
tu be considering. Then oue of the purrots
suddenly begun to tremble and dropped
down dead.
Tbe merchant, perceiving this, was very
mueh grieved at heart and blamed Ids own
parrot for sending a message thut bad resulted In the death of one of Ids feathered
relations. Hu went on bis way and pro
ceeded to finish his business In Hluduostun,
and upon t hut being accomplished returned
home. Ills family and friends welcomed
him joyfully, uud to oaoh he gnvo the present they hud chosen. Then the parrot
asked him:
"Where Is my presentf Tell mo what
you said to the pnrruts in Hlndoostau and
what they said in reply."
"Vuur message was the message uf a
fool," returned tbe merchant, "and I was
a fool also to deliver it!"
The parrot appeared greatly astonished.
"My lord," said he, "why this repentance,
why this wrath, why this sorrow*" And
the merchant answered, "I stated thymes-
Biige ton flock of thy relatives, and ono of
them so felt the Incense of thy grief ut being ii captive thut be fell over and died of a
broken heart." When the parrot beard
this, it, too, began to tremble, and falling
from its perch died likewise.
When the master saw this, he was overwhelmed with sorrow because of the deuth
of his bird friend, und cast bis cap on tbu
ground as a token of his grief. Then hu
took up the body nf-the parrot und cast it
out into the garden, when, lo! the cunning
bird flew away to n high tree near byl At
this bis master flew Into a great rage and
demanded an explanation for bis deceitful
conduct.
Whereupon the parrot answered; "Dear
master, you huve been very kind to me, but
liberty Is sweet. How would you like tube
shut up in u cngef Hut know that the parrot who fell dowu dead wben he heard my
message wns only acting a part. By doing
so lie meant to convey to me through you
tbe menus of escape. I am now going buck
to Illudoostnu, but I will return ngnin mid
bring you a present as a reward for your
kindness to me as a captive. Farewell!"
So saying the parrot flew away. He was
absent so long the merchant concluded thnt
be bad forgotten all about his promised
present in the joys of bis recovered liberty.
Hut one day when the big Persian ."uses
in the merchant's garden were ull abloom,
and he himself was walking about and en-
Joying their fragrance, be heard his name
called, and looking up beheld his old friend,
Mr. Parrot, perched on a branch overhead
and holding something in one crooked claw.
"Here, muster," said tbe bird, "I havo
brought you your present. Wear It and it
will preserve you from ail misfortune and
harm. Held uut your robe, and I will drop
it iu." Tbe merchant did as be wns bidden,
und the parrot dropped a shining something within its folds and Immediately
after flew away, never more to return.
The shining something proved to be a
most wonderful emerald, cut in tbe form of
an eye, and engraved ou the back with mystic symbols. The merchant showed It to
the wise men of Bagdad, and tbey one and
all agreed tbat not unly whs It a priceless
gem, but that the parrot in ull probability
bud pecked It out of tbe eye socket of some
Hlndoostan Idol. Thereupon tbe merchant
ordered it set in a gold frame, and wore It
ever after as a charm against the evil eye,
an tbe parrot had directed.—Pittsburg Dispatch.

"A gentlewoman, being nt table, must
observe to keep ber body straight aud lean
not by any means with ber elbows, nor by
ravenous gesture discover a voracious appetite. Talk not when you have meat In your
mouth, and do not smack like « pig, nor
venture tu eat spoon meat su but that the
tears stand In your eyes, which Is as unseemly ns the gentlewoman who pretended
to have hs little a stomach us she bnd a
mouth, and therefore would not swallow ber
peas by spoonful, but took them one by one
aud cut them lu two before she would eat
them. It is very unseemly to drink so large
a draft that your breuth Isulmost gone,and
you are forced to blow strongly to recover
yourself. In carving at your own table, distribute the best pieces first, and it will appear very comely and decent to use a fork

A Coln'i Return.
It 1b not often thut a marked coin once
put into circulation is returned to the person who mnrked It. Mr. George Troup,
superintendent of Forest Lnwn cemetery,
before ho left Scotland, had bis name
stamped upon a coin of the issue of George
II. It wns done in fun, and at thnt time
be never d mimed thnt the coin would ever
be returned to bim. The coin was put into
circulation, und a short time afterward
Mr. Troup came to this country. More
than 80 years passed by, nnd he thought
nothing'moreabout the circumstance. One
day a friend of his at lodge said to him,
"I have a coin with your name npon it."
"I asked bim to let me Bee the coin,"
said Mr. Troup, and when I looked at It
I found it was tho identical piece thnt I
had marked so long ngo. I wrote to the
man who wns present when the coin was
marked in Scotlund, and he recalled tbe
circumstance, nnd I got the coin from my
Buffnlo friend, und now I would not tnke
a good sum of money for it. Where that
coin had been during tbe 30 years no one
knows, but it is n strange coincidence that
It should have turned up to me in Buffalo,
the home I had adopted. "—Buffalo Express.
The Unsociable.
We envy neither the men nor the wom-
eu who cannot speak tu n fellow creature
out uf tbeir own circle ur to anybody without thu formality of an Introduction.
There Is no computing thenmount of profit
as well ns pleasure such persons lose by
hedging themselves In with this stupid
fence of fust iillounnenn. We huve always
found more of this feeling among persons
who were more touchy ou their uncial position than among those self respecting
persons who thought nothing about It.
A great denl nf intelligence Is floating
round tbo world without being labeled,
and those men or women who have the
good sense to recognize this fact and act
upon It not only nre educating themselves,
but conferring that pleasure which we are
all bound by tbe common ties of humanity to exchange with one another. It seems
to us tbat it is only tbe snob mid pretender who take a different view of this question.—New York ledger.

The different organs of the body are very
sympathetic One is very apt to feel tbe
pain of another, and it is not alwuys easy
to locate tbe trouble exactly. A weak back
not infrequently occasions a pain in the
side, and one limb often aobes out of sympathy for another.
Ali-cock's Porous Plaptkrb are just tlie
remedy iri such cases. They a'e soothing
in their effect, and draw out the pain so
that the back or side or limbs are supple
instead of stiff, and free to perform their
functions.
They hove been tried by thousands and
millions of people iu every land, and with
one uniform result, entire satisfaction.

CANNfNCI  SALMON'.

.•nlniiiii cimnory commpncod opor-
jitinns in \Vu8tmliiBlor, on tlio
water front. ImniodlatpTjj aliovo tlio
tarry landing. Tho editor of Sun-
li'lSY Timrs liapponod to )>c In lown
at Ilia timo ami ourloslly lqc] litiii
in Inspdol the promises, M'phavo
/in intention of desorfbir)g the panning process, suffice ii thai there
was ii largo quantity of frpsh-paughl
salmon beinguinnipuliiiril by fcomo
twenty ot thirty men, npd that
Iho fittings, ami ihe ptooess gone
rally could not lie objected to In
regard lo cleanliness. The feature,
however, In which objection may
justly lie taken by every white man
and woman In British Columbia
who works for a living;, is the fact
that of the whole staff of men engaged in the cannery on the occasion of our visit, only the engineer
was white ! Tho rest were Chinamen 1 Now, (his cannery is in this
respect no different from nil the
other salmon canneries in li. C,
and as Ihe total number of Chinamen employed no doubt exceeds a
thousand, it is plain that labor representing a large amount of money is being year after year withheld from deserving Canadians
and placed in Iho bands of ioreign-
prs not held in much favor by the
public of this coast, and not esteemed anywhere out of China for
Iho cleanness of their habits, their
only merit the supposed cheapness
pi their labor, and that a fallacy.
We are aware that the cannprs assert that the salmon puck cannot
be put up profitably without the
advantage of Chinese cheap labor.
That assertion may safely bo put
down as a lie straight. If every
Chinaman was banished from
(he Pacific coast, the canneries would not close down. Nobody is silly enough to believe
such trash. The truth is the candors are too greedy. They have
made money fast, and Iho influence
thus gained they have used lo manipulate a rich public resource in
such manner that the white public
gets the least possible benefit, and
the whole wealth of tlie resource
goes into tlie pockets of the can-
ners. If the salmon industry will
riot pay to lie workod by white
people, it would bo better for British Columbia that it remain undo*
veloped, u promise for the future,
rather than that so valuable a resource should be exhausted to foster a horde of Chinamen and enrich a score or so of greedy and
inconsiderate white men, dinners,
who happen lo have tbe "bulge" on
the public,
This is a matter that every labor
organisation should take up, and
never rest until it bo established
that Canadian labor has a first
claim upon the development and
operation of Canadian resources.
Those newspapers, too, llint like lo
po-e ns friends and allies of the
working man, might drop caul for
n time and lake up this mailer
ready to their hand, to the end
that the labor of die canneries be
while labor, and then perhaps it
will imi again happen tbat Intelligent ntul industrious white men
will bo glad lo work for their
lioard, as has happened too frequently Ibe pnst year.
Ottawa, June 26.- Joseph Martin, M. P. for Winnipeg, in a letter
to the Citizen, says that, evidently,
there has been a misunderstanding
with the Roman Catholios on the
school question, and lie believes it
can lie settled without the interference of Parliament. If the Catholics only want religious teaching,
us Mr. Oumct says, Manitoba will
grunt this.
IMPOUNDING ANIMALS.
The   Surrey   Pound    By-law,
passed by tho Council"of 1800, is n
curiosity. By il the ponmlkecpoi
is allowed lo collcol fill cents por
head per dny for keep on all animals except pigs and sheep, and
thoso call for 2ii cents per head
p"r dny. As the pbfll of pasture
does not amount lo 10 cents per
bend pot day, il will be soon that
the poiinjkcepcr hiif. a pretty good
thing, e.-peciiilly if Ihe impounded
animals bo calves or other young
slock thut do not coi;t lib} cents
per month for keep.
A few weeks ago Mr, Win.
Ilugnley, who lives on the Yule
loud near the eastern boundary of
Surrey, losl four yearling heifers.
lie i in ii in 1 i .i I c] y commenced a
search for lliem, instituted inquiries in eveiy likely  plucc, but  the
animals wprp not to bp found They
wore, in fact, iu the bands of
I'onndkeepi'i' Fnllowfield, of Kensington Prairie, eight miles from
homo. Boforo Mr. ilaguloy got
any intimation of the [apt. the four
animals woro sold for poundage,
nnd ns scarce half-a-dozen people
knew of the sale, Iho whole four
brought some $28, while the fees of
tbe poundkeeper amounted to b)86.
Just Hunk, four young cattle,
nearly IK months old didn't bring
the cost of two weeks ppundage.
This jri iniquitous.
Whether Mr. Fallowlicld did or
did not conform to the provisions
of tlio by-law under which he was
appointed to keep tho Municipal
pound, Is ii mutter upon which we
offer no opinion, tbe more especially as the matter is likely to como before the courts, but in regnrd to
tbe wretched by-law one need not
hesitate in condoning it as it disgraceful measure.
Tho fact is, in u rural district
such as Surrey, there is no need
whatever for a public pound.
Power should be given to every
settler lo impound shay animals
and to collect fair charges for keep,
and if anything the charges should
be on the low side, so as not to
make it an on inducement to any
one Ip bo too ready to shut up animals, that aro doing no damage.
The party shutting up a "stray "
should be required to advertise the
fact without unnecessary delay, in
a suitable newspaper, describing
the animal and calling upon the
owner to take it away. Tho advertisement should appear for at
least three weeks, and be a charge
against the stray. This is a custom that is recognised all through
Canada, and under it, with proper
details, no one need be aggricyed,
while it would work smooth from
the start, because thp idea is familiar to the public. In any event,
it js tlio duty of tho Council to
take immediate action in regard to
the old by-law, or it may prove a
bill of expense at any time. No
one acquainted wjth it believes it
would stand the test of a law suit.
An agent of the Manitoba fiov-
ernment has been vjsiting Britisli
Columbia with a special view to
providing a market here for Manitoba bullor. He is reported to be
satisfied with the prospect. As the
freight on butter from the Prairie
Province is a considerable item,
and us moreover this coast offers
many advantages for dairying,
butter makers here should bo able
to deal with this competition. The
shipments will likely be made in
the fall aud winter, and tbe flnl
effect will   probably  be a collapse
of the market, whioh will be bad
for all, bill will no doubt result in
putting a stop to the Manitoba
shipments, for makers there as
here seek u profitable price for their
produce. The duly on foreign butter should he increased to bar out
the California product, if indeed an
analysis would not bar it out under existing regulations, for no
adulterated butter is allowed to be
shipped into Canada. Tlie California butter sold in Vancouver a
few years back wns all adulterated
to the extent of being readily detected by the taste. It was nicely
put up, and the dealers bought it
cheap and sold it dear. Tlie Provincial authorities would be well
within their duty in having a test
made of the California butter now
on the city markets—Vaucover especially. '

The Situation.
From tlio statistic Nows-Ailvurtlser.
The close of the first half of tbo
year affords a convenient occasion
for a brief general review of tlie
business situation and outlook for
British Columbia. On the whole
there has certainly been considerable progress made towards a moro
satisfactory state of things than
prevailed at tho beginning of tlie
year. In the first place there is
more confidence felt ijiat trade will
improve, and the existence of Ibis
feeling will itself play no unimpor:
tant part in tlie improvement. But
at the same time it is well to utter
a word of warning. Some of tlie
reports which have been sent from
British Columbia by the correspondents of eastern newspapers are
greatly over-colored, both as to the
actual prpsent condition and to the
probabilities of the ensuing six
months, and, as a result, were thoy
accepted without qualification,
there would unquestionably be
much disappointment causpd to
those who received them. As an
instance, we read recently in one
eastern trade journal a statement
from u correspondent here, tp the
effect that the production of gold
in British Columbia would be greater in 18115 than in any previous
year in the history of tlie province.
Now, as in the early days, the placers along the Fraser River yielded
several millions of dollars in one
year, tliis is equivalent to saying
that the gold production for 1895
will amount to, perhaps, $5,000,000,
Any one who is competent to give
an opinion on the subject, must be
aware that, short of a miracle, such
an output is impossible with the
present development of hydraulic
mining here. The real facts are
such as to afford ample satisfaction
to everyone concerned, and the real
interests both of the Province and
of individuals, demand nothing
more than a truthful and conservative statement of things as they
actually are.
Although British Columbia is
not an agricultural country, in tlie
sense that Manitoba or Ontario is,
yet our farming community is at
present the most Important section
of tbe people outside of tlio popu-
| lation in the Coast cities. Both as
producers and consumers, therefore,
the condition of the agricultural
class is ii matter of the first consideration. It is satisfactory,
therefore, to know that from nearly
I ever j agricultural section of the
'Province, favorable reports are
being received.    In  the aggregate
there appears to bo no doubt that
j there is u largrr area under cultivation than at nny previous time
in the history of the Province. The
present condition of the crops,
j whether cereals or fruil, is reported
to bo good, while the meadows are
j likely to yield heavy crops of hay.
I The dairy industry bus, during the
! lust few months, received especial
1 attention, and as no portion of the
j Dominion is better adapted for its
J prosecution, this renewed interest
| und effort is a feature that is very
satisfactory. There is a general
recognition of Hie fact that old
methods must be abandoned and
the dairyman adopt a system like
that which prevails in other industries, where a division of labor,
concentrated capital nnd the most
modern appliances are all utilized
to produce an article which finds a
ready market from its uniformity
and excellence of quality.   While
prices still remain low for all kinds
ol agricultural produce, any movement is in an upward direction
with rensonuble prospects of ti per-
lnunonl advance in quotations
being secured.

for abolition of separate schools,
so that there will bp but one official
language and ono system of schools
for Canada, and to disseminate information concerning Canada's
mineral, agricultural, marine, and
lumbering industries. Only Canadians by birth arc allowed to join
the new organization, and thousands of applications have been already received,
