John Thomas Weston was eighteen years of age, a native of Perth,  Ontario, and had lived in B. C. for  five years, three of which had been  spent in Abbotsford, where ho attended school I'or a while.  He was a valued employee of F. J.  R. Whitchelo, Ltd: and had made  many true friends while in the performance of his duties. The deceased'!  is survived by his parents, two broth-'  ers,, three sisters, residing at home;  also uncles' and aunts in Vancouver,  Alberta  arid   California.  ^ITuneraL services at the house and  "''graveside'Avere conducted by Rev.

He was of a quiet, Aviuning  ���������The Abbotsford band is to have a  special meeting on Tuesday evening  next and if is the reeiuest that all  ���������memhers of the band be present.  Mr. Gray takes quite an interest in  the local band and is endeavoring to  do his best for the progress ; of the  local boys. With the co-operation ot  the other members in tlie band he  hopes to keep,up the high standard  readied last year.  By his special request the follow-  i ing is published    from    the    Fraser  j Valley Record    it    being    part    of a  speech made at a   luncheon at    Mi������-  ! sion City a few days ago.  Mr Fred Bannister, who'is responsible for the success of uniting the  efforts of the boys avIio form the  band and the training of them in  such a proficient manner, gave a feAV  figures Avhich sIioavs that he and his  musicians mean real business''in giv-  ing to the community a band that  they may avcII be . proud, of., He  stated that they were 30 strong, 22  actually    playing    and    9    students;  This morning tho,' telephone system was not in working order and  believing that it was tlie switchboard  that was not up to ,tJ)o usual 100 per  cent standard, it wa") thoroughly examined, but nothing Avas found  wrong with it.        '   .,,;  Soon however Avhfcn people could  not get the party they wanted over  the line, everyone began to inquire  what was wrong. It was found that  the cable coming down in front, of  the Pioneer Store had been cut almost through. Then it. Avas found  that Mr.'and Mrs. I-Iaddrell had been  awakened during the night, and t.wo  men had been found'hanging around  the street in that part of tlie tOAvn.  They are probably the guilty pair.  The repair men arrived from No\%  Westminster .about noon and the line  will probably be fixed this' evening  or early tomorrOAV morning.  The motive for the cutting of the  cable can only be surmised. But it  Avill be'remembered that when the  bank at Steveston and the bank at  Ladner were robbed ' that the telephone cables had been cut. It Avas  very probably a similar case here  had the marauders not been molested. Mrs. Haddrell has a fair description of the tAvo men.  Later���������as Ave go to press' two suspects have been arrested at the border line, and a constable and assistant have left to escort the men to  Vancouver.  f  Arnett Home  From Gold Coast  W. 0. Arnett oi Holly Lodge .and  formerly of Matsqui. has returned  home from the Gold Coast, where he  has been engaged in the harbor development work under way at Ta-  harodi under the direction of, SteAvurt  &. MacDonald. He reports 'that several of the Uritish Columbia, men  who were selected to assist Avith the  work by General .1. W. Stewart are  coining home for a. holiday shortly,  among them Major T.--A. li. Taylor  ("Tommy Taylor" of rowing fame),  A. G. Graham and R. D. Thomas of  Victoria.  ���������British Columbia timber is being  employed largely for bridge Avork  on the railway line, which now penetrates into the district of Aslianci  as far as' Canessie, a distance of ;  about 16S miles.

The sympathy of  entire community is extended to  sorrowing relatives.  a  tho  tho  there Avas also a bugle band of lo  players, while 15 members of the  band owned their oaat. instruments.  The amount invested in the instruments Avas $18'lo.78. This Avas the  wholesale price. There was $87.10  invested in music, and $7 5.00 in  music stands'. And said the speaker.  "Ave Avant $450 from the public and  all is clear, then the band will be on  a proper paying basis." It was the  first band in B. C. to fill an engage-  met in Vancouver. It Avas to be  known as the "Mission City Community Brass' Band." He and tho  boys Avould be willing to give, any  public service to the community, and  as an example would go to Nicomen  in June Avhen the board of trade  held their picnic to celebrate ihe  dyking of that rich area. He closed his remarks with the statement  that there Avas "no band at the coast  can   beat us."  The W. 1. of Mission City af a.recent meeting voted $15 0 for a, band  stand near the centre of the town.  1  LAUGH ATTENDANCE AT  ANNUAL  MASONIC  HALL  CLUB MEMBERS HOLD  FORTH IN  TE  The Abbotsf&rd Men's Club met on  Tuesday evening, and after a social  hour had been enjoyed, the members  took part-in a debate, viz. ."Resolved that big business is detrimental  to the welfare of the 'community."  Messrs. F. E. White and O. WA  Benedict ably introduced the'subject  and Messrs. H. R. BroAvn and F. S.  Thorn spoke in favor of Big Business.  A great deal of animated discussion followed, every member speaking on the subject. -Finally a vote  Avas taken which gave the verdict to  "Big   Business."  All present expressed a desire for  another debate at an early date, and  as next Tuesday is an open dale it  was decided to hold a debate that  evening. Tho subject will be.

Each clover  blossom provides' about one-eighth  of a grain, so this pound represents  the sweet fruitage of 5 6,00 0 clover  heads.  But the clover head is composed of  about sixty florets or flower tubes'.  To extract the hidden sAveet the bee  must probe each of these. This  means some sixty separate  tions on each floAver.  If one bee contracted' to gather a  pound of honey, that bee would  have to explore 3,360,000 of these  tiny tubes' to secure the material.  AllOAving five seconds for each exploration and twelve hours to a day,  it Avould take this bee some four  IVi hundred  days to produce a pound.  And this avouUI represent only the  gathering of the honey, not the time  required  for  building    the Avax-case  But there never yet.   Avas a    hive  and storing the sweet stuff,  with just one bee to each comb.  Nature  commands  pooled  effort.  Hundreds of bees to each comb  makes a comparatively quick and  easy operation of what Avould be an  impossible task for one bee working  alone.  So what Ave do not, see in the  comb of honey is the greatest of lessons in one of the . greatest of success-makers-^���������Co-operation.  On every side Nature flaunts this  lesson in man's face.  The seed  itself is  nothing.  Sun, soil and moisture must co-  perate with the latent germ in-order  to produce  plant life.  The most solid rock is my co-opera  ting atms.

It may run for a.  while on its oavh momentum, but it  is headed for the dump-heap.  To co-perate is to join hands and  something more.    It is to join hearts  as Avell as hands, and    slip a  soul  into the bargain.  Not to    co-operate    is    to  loneliness, life-rust and loss.  The a.B.C. of success is this  Bee!

This end    can be  accomplished   much     more     cheaply  and   with   more  beautiful  results,  as  the  farmer has everything including  an adequate space to Avork with.     .  The appearance    of a    place is a  very safe index to the    character    o!  the  owner.     Poor stock,  poor  vegetables,     disoased     fruit     trees     and  Avormy fruit go hand in    hand    wiLli  unpa'nted buildings, filthy barnyards  and a bare house with    grounds un-  ornamented, and yet. the majority ol  our   farms  are  in  this  condition.   In  fact,  those with really  well  laid-out  and, Avell-kcpt grounds and  orchards  arc the exception.  Making the home grounds tidy  t only adds to flit  pleasures of life, but it is' good  business, for it should be remembered that the front yard of the farm is  the show windoAV of his place ol  business. It is' also good business  because it attracts the buyer for the  products of the farm or the farm itself, as everyone likes to trade at a  farm or a store that has an appearance of being up to date, Avell-kept.  of having fresh goods, aud Ave are  Avilling to pay the price for these  things rather than take a chance on  the others.  It also pays because Avell-kept  grounds and buildings bring returns  out of all proportion to their cost  opera-jsln fact, in a consideration of  matter, the Avord "investment'  "expense" should ahvays be thought  this  no'  of.  Any farm, the house of Avhich is  framed Avith trees, porches shaded  with vines, Avhich possesses a smooth  expanse of lawn, the ojectionabic  features hidden from view by _trees,  shrubs, or vines, has risen in value  entirely out of all proportion to the  time or money spent.  And tbe problem of beautifying  tlie farm is not an expensive one, at  the orchard trees may be so placed  as to be of a very ornamental nature  and profitable ��������� as Avell. In fact,  landscape men to-day are using fruit  trees for ornamental purposes in ore  than ever before.  With these as the main material  plus shrubs, perennials and flowers  tastefully placed in clumps and masses around the foundation of the  house and in irregular borders, and  with some vines to hide the bareness  of the Avails, the Avhole picture is  changed. A home not a farm-house  is the result.  Our farm grounds should be  improved if for no other reasn than  that of the women and the children  fo Avhom the love for beauty appeals  even more than it does to men.  Make the farm-house and grounds  a real home not an eating or sleeping  place or an adjunct of the barns and  other buildings.  ailed the S or secondary wav?s toov  bout tAvouty miniutcs, Avhereas the  or long waves, took about fhirtv-  wo minutes. The first tAvo sets traveled 'through the- interior of tho  rsarth, while the long Avaves radiat-'  id out over the gccuii floor and over  lie hind surface in all diroef'ous. Tt  was from Ihe difference in the time  of arrival of those Avaves that the  distance of tlie centre of the earth-  ���������uake from the observatory Avas cal-  ���������ulate. The combined records at  Xtawa, Hawaii, and Georgetown  ��������� D.C., U.S.A.) were used to finally  .letsrminc  its  exact  location.  Sei.-.mograph  records    are  of con-  ���������idcrable value  for (he  purpose    of  i'elcrmining  the  conditioins ' beneath  ':he earth's surface.    As' the prelim-  nary and  secondary  waves of , this  quake  dipped  8 00 miles boloAv    the  -arlli's  surface,   they penetrated   far  below   any   borings   man   could   ever  "lake  and   they     brought     information which could not be obtained  in  my other way.  The seismographs at Ottawa arc  '.-opt constantly recording, day and  ���������light. There are from 100 to 150  ������������������uirlhquakos recorded in a- year.  These records are furnishing data  'or the location of earthquake epicentres and active fault lines. The  mass of data accumulated Avill probably lead in time fo predictions of'  'jrcat quakes.  The perfecting of seismograph  ���������'nstruments offers, as an interesting  and profitable side-line, means fov  'he investigation of vibrations, and  ������������������agging in buildings, filled-land  Areas, railway lines, and great chimneys, and used locally Avith artificial  makes generated by means of ex-  ilosives set off at the base of a  single bore-hole, enables surveys to  'ie made for the location of oil and  -amoral deposits.

(From   Fraser   Valley   Record")  On Tuesday evening of last'Aveek  the band of the 172nd R. M. R. gathered in the drill hall to participate  in a social function that Avas peculiarly their own. Unknown to the  prospective recipient, it had been  decided that the time Avas ripe for  the members to make a suitable  presentation to one of their fellow  bandsmen, "Jim" Bromley, to celebrate his recent Avedding, and also  as a mark of the esteem in Avhich  Bandsman Bromley is held by his  colleagues in the 172nd R. M. R.  Accordingly, he was' lured to the  scene of operations on the grounds  that it Avas imperative he attend an  "especially  important practise."  When Colonel J. JR.. Vicars ros*,  on behalf of the boys, and in a witty speech of short duration presented  Mr. Bromley Avith a beautiful cas-  ���������serole, nobody Avas more surprised  than the bandsman himself. As soon  as the presentation had been made,  and before the "victim" could get  his Avind, the band struck up "For  lie's a Jolly Good  Fellow."  As soon as he could make himself  heard, the recipient, in a feAv Avell  chosen words, expressed his thanks  and those of Mrs. Bromley fo-; the  gift and the kindly spirit Avhich had  ���������prompted   it.���������Kamloops   Standard.

The Sfory So Vav  Jerry Carruthors, star reporter_ of  the Redding "Journal" is exiled  lo a lonely summer resort by ill-  health. .Angus, his editor, had  recommended the place where, so  far, he has only seen the proprietor and a beautiful young lady  avI.'o gives her name as Glynne  Clydesdale. . An argument gets  them acquainted and Jerrv is  greatly attracted by Glynne's personality.  Several days passed and he certainly avus enjoying himself. He had  been Avith Glynne a great deal of the  time. They, had taken hikes through  the Avoods. They had gone sAvim-  niing (ogethcr and had been all over the hike in canoes. He had rented one from Stroud, avIio kept several ��������� for  this purpose.  One morning he aAvoke Avith the  sun streaming through the windoAV  across his eyes. Getting up, ho donned his bathing suit and took a refreshing dip in the cool waters of  lhe hike. Hastening back, be dressed for breakfast and went into the  dining room, lie did not see Glynne  ���������probably she Avas not yet up. Adjourning to the verandah he enjoyed a short smoke with his pine arid  then  Avandorcd dOAvn   to  the dock.  He hail already ~doc.ic.ed to paddle  over Lo ;x small island when he was  on (he lake'boat. It now appealed to  him a, great deal more now than it  had (hat day. He arranged his canoe  and in twenty minutes had tied the  craft to a corner of a rock and Avas  seated on the island Avatching the  tiny ripples lapping against . the  shore.  Alone, and his thoughts' turned  once more to his present predicament. He Avas glad Angus had suggested Cedar Inn and Avn.s.glad ho  had met Glynne. He wondered Avhere  she Avas. She certainly Avas a great  little girl and he loved her free,  easy manner.,  These thoughts loft his mind, and  reflections of the office took their  place. This Avas' a serious question  He Avas sure of his position���������it Avas  not that���������but he Avould have liked  the promotion. He kneAv, he was  knoAvn for his exclusive stories, but  this would not help him much if his  health Avas poor. If he had someone at the office substituting for him  it would help, but he couldn't get a  substitute. If���������His thoughts were  interrupted by a little shout behind  him. Turning, lie saw Glynne. dres-  ,sed in a neat outing suit and looking  fresher than the very morning- itself..  "Greetings," she exclaimied. "Why  all -the gloom? I saw you coming  her and I thought I Avould see Avhat  was up. It's terribly unconventional isn't it? I don't care though, I  like    being    unconventional,      don't  you?"  Jerry reluctantly explained that  being unconventional had never entered his' mind before, but assured  her that under the clrlcumstances he  rather liked it.  "What's all the trouble, Jerry?"  Glynne cheerily asked, as she seated  herself .beside him on the mossy  grass. "Feeling worse this morning?"  Jerry looked into her big. deep  eyes and decided to unload his whole  difficulty.  "I don't want to trouble you with  my soitoavs," he said, very serious,  "but it's this Avay. You see, I got  along pretty avoII at the office when  my health gave out. J. Avas* sure of  getting a promotion at the time, but  now I've left them in the lurch and  that. Avill spoil all my chances Avith  old Angus, the editor. It wouldn't  be so bad if I had someone there taking my place until I got back, but a  substitute couldn't be found any  place." ,,  "Angus must be an old bear, declared  Glynne.  "He is," Jerry agreed.  Both remained silent for a moment.  "Did I tell you I Avas going home  this' afternoon Jerry?" Glynne queried.  Jerry groaned. All his troubles  were coming at once and he Informed his companion of the fact.  Glynne laughed and told him not  to be such a gloom artist.  "Tt Avouldn't be so bad here. There  are plenty of other girls," she grinned.    "Even if they are a trifle over  forty."  This turned the conversation a-  lon.p* lighter channels, and both, began to enjoy life. They saw who  could throAV stones the farther in the  lake, he won. hands down. They  drew pictures in the sandy loam���������  here he was outclassed. In short, as  Glynne later said, they acted like a  pair  of  giddy  ten-year-olds.  Shortly before noon they united  their canoes and paddled slowly, back  to the Itin. She promised not to for-  eet him and he vowed to call on  her as soon as he returned to the  city. a  It was'iuat a week after he had arrived at the Inn when Jerry stood on  the same dock with the same Avistful  TlilH  VALUail   ���������Oi'1  cults v.-vr:oN  Tt has been, found   by  that  tliu   cultivation   of  expei-ence  lbs ttu!,ac\:  soil early in the spring is a \evy do  only   does  hardier  wj,  begin    grow  it  Mis  sible' practise.

There is one matter that could be  taken up Avith the authorities by the  clubs~as they now stand; and that is  regarding the kind of gravel tlun is  put on the roads of ihe Fraser Valley.. Both the Vale road and tlie road  on the north side of 'the Eraser are  often made almost impassable after  a coat of new gravel, not because  this gravel is put on too thick, but  because of the size of tho stones in  it, and also the time of the year it  is put on the road.  It seems a senselcs thing to put  loose gravel on the hard roads at  this time of the year. All Avinter the  .autoist has driven through the mud.  and now Avhen there is a chance of a  little comfort in travelling along  comes the road gang Avith a. lot ot  loose stuff that not only makes ii  again unpleasant, but in many eases  dangerous. A road grader just as  the road is' getting dry in spring, oi  after a rain would be more elfectiA'i  towards making a good road to drivi  on. A good curved road without loos;  rock or rock embedded in the road h  as pleasant to drive over'as a pavement, except in very dry weather.  But Avhy when there is a prospect of  a road being in fair shape should the  autoist have to run through loose  gravel? ,Could it not be put ou at  another season of the year?  Then there is the kind of gravel  that is put on in most cases. Just as  it comes out of the pit. No care used  in leaving the big' stones behind. It  costs money to handle these big-  stones. Big stones are all larger than  half the size of a hen's egg. They  are a costly affair to both the goA--  ernmont or municipality and also to  the autoist. They cost money- to put  them on the road and very often it  costs money to get them off the ioad.  And when off the road unless hauled away prevent the Avater draining  off the road allowance. Why not  have these handled at the gravel  pit? There is enough fine gravel in  the Fraser Valley pits, to give us  lie very best of roads.  Tf co-operation and' union would  handle the gravel proposition it  would well be Avorth tAvice the a-  niount paid for membership to any  automobile club.

On the farm the  making of such a bed is a simple  .maa-jr because of the presence of  iiuinuro of a- suitable kind. .Whereas  the g;eenhouse has to depend on  K'oam heating fertile necessary  Avarmth, the heat for a hotbed is so-  cured from that arising from fresh  ���������manure. The hotbed may be placed on, fop of the ground or in an  excavation. Whichever plan is decided upon, the site chosen should  drain so as not to permit Avater to  stand. If-the beloAV-ground plan is  adopted, the soil should be taken  -���������at to a. depth of about 18 inches  aud for about three feet wider than'  the frame, -so that there may be  room for banking up outside the  frame. The banking is very important as it conserves the heat.. Horse  ���������nanure is the' best. It should be  quite hot and-ready for use in1 five  or six days.  To support the glass sash, a sim-  rslo frame should be made of tAvo-  '*!K'h planks. It ' should be so con-  -.tructed' that it may be raised if the  oJanfs get too close to the glass. To  provide for the shedding of rain, the  back of the frame should be six  inches higher than the front.  When building tho bed, the manure-should be shaken so that the  long and short particles are Avell  mixed. Tramp well as each layer  is added, until a depth of Iavo to tAvo  uid a half feet is secured. The frame  ;s then put in position and five ' or  ���������qx inches more manure is shaken in  A'ood garden soil to the depth of  -ix inches should iioav be placed ov-  >r the manure, and the sash put on.  ���������'n fivo or six days' the hotbed will  "-,9 ready for the seed.

R.  McMastcr, Liberal. Brome.  Mr. .McMaster explained that his  legislation had met with practically  no opposition in the Senate. At the  present time the laAv provided that  a man might marry his deceased  Avife's sister but. strange to say, a  Avoman might not marry her deceased husband's brother. For the  last 4 0 years this right had been accorded to men but not to women.  The bill was also given third reading without further debate.

"So many are  written and so Tew ever see the li^ht  or day. An li'nglish playwright  with a gift'of humorous exaggeration illustrated'th..'J fact to me once.  He told me how he sumbitted *  play to a celebrated actor and how  in the course of conversation the  actor remarked:  "Don't you think it's growing chilly in this room?"  "Yes, it is rather," the young  a servant forthwith appeared.  "Then the actor rang a bell and  a  servant  forthwith   apepared.  ". 'James,' said the actor, 'this  room is rather cold. You may put  three more manuscripts on the fire!"  Many people in this nrovince have  made decided objections to the way  the public debt of this province has  climbed up during the past few  years, but it looks as though the 13.  C. government dots not know what it  is to create debt, if the Parmer gov-  eminent of Ontario is any criterion.  There is to be an election in Ontario  this summer and facts and figures  are being brought out to destroy the  faith of the people in the Drury administration. Money always talks,  'tis ,said.  In 52 years up to 1019, which  marked the arrival of the "preaching  economist," he said, the best that  many administrations could do in  accumulating a debt upon Ontario  Avas to pile up $97,000,000. But  after the "real economists" stepped  in the people "got an example of  spending Avhich had left them amazed for, in four years, the Druryites  have raised that $97,000,000 up to  $241,000,000."  Of course it was the Conservative  position when electing the electors  r-f West York who gives the above  figures, but it is some increase in  the "cent belt."  cC  Abbotsford  tfmSVti JiiimmXaa  CASH.

Fontaine AA'as  burned to the ground, but very little  of the contents being saved.  At. that hour, Mr. Fontaine was  aroused by, the family pet, a little  black dog, jumping on his bed, having sensed the danger. At that time  the house Avas so full of smoke that  a flashlight Avas no help in the  dark. An effort Avas made to save'  the contents or a part of them but  it seemed impossible to go back into  the volumes of smoke and flame. The  garage Avas' also burned but luckily  enough the car was taken out into  safety.  The cause of the fire is unknown  at the present time but evidently it  had been smouldering for some time  during the time of the sleeping  hours.  The building Avas partly covered  by  insurance.

Noav, according to the best tenets of stage  and screen, a moment such as that  is normally solemnized by 'an ecstatic kiss. True, the couple happened  to be Avalking in the street at the  time, but at such moments love is  blind to its surroundings.  But a shocked policeman, spying  them, marched them off to the police station, where they spent the  night, and Ave re subsequently solemnly told by the magistrate that  they should be ashamed of themselves.���������London Express.  AUTO  INFORMATION*  The'young men and Avomen oi'  this toAvn should feel thankful that  it is not Ireland that they are living  in instead of B. 0. But then of  course there are no street lights and  if the same "unromantic law" were  in force here he Avould ever knoAV  the difference. Come to think of it  maybe that is one reason why some  people do not Avant street lights.  Here is the Irish story from the London'Express:'  The lamentable case in Belfast of  the young man and girl avIio were  locked up over night for the grievous offence of kissing in the street,  sheds an illuminating light on the.  law's unromantic attitude toward  such things.

Southbound traffic will be routed along the Johnston road to the McLellan road and  along the Coast Meridian road to  Douglas, the point of entry info  Blaine. The Coast Meridian road is  in good shape but is unlikely to  withstand the heavy traffic once the  dry weather sets in. By that time,  however, the stretch over the Serpentine Flats is expected to be  finished and ready for use.  With the exception of some  bumpy spots, the Johnston road  from White Rock to the Green Timber, or to the paved section of the  Pacific Highway is -reported to be  in rood condition. Detour signs  have been posted along the route by  the government, but incoming travellers are still confused by the cross'  roads on the Canadian side of the  boundary and at White Rock.
