TRUE BLUE CONCERT  When the members of the Abbotsford  True Blue Lodge make up their mind to  entertain their friends, they do it in  a manner that.leaves no room for criticism. This was clearly exemplified on  Thursday last when the Alexander Hall  was crowded to the doors with an au-.  dience who enjoyed every item on the  excellent programme provided by.the  committee in charge. "Mr. Wooler, of  Peardonvijle, fulfilled the duties of  chairman in his usual happy manner,  and announced the following program:  Song, Mr. Blair; recitation, Miss Slater;  song, Mrs. A. Mclnnes; comic song,  Mr. Hands; Scotch songs in character,  Mr. Walker; recitation, Mr. Colliugson,  of Pino Grove. 'A sketch, "Flannigan  and Finnigan," by Mrs. Eoberts and  Mr. Chapman was very amusing, while  the farce, "An Irish Engagement"  kept the audience in roars of laughter.  The cast was composed of Mrs. Roberts,  Miss Shaw, Miss E.' 'Walters, Mr. T.  McPh'ec, Mr. 0. Hicks'and Mr. J. Kennedy.  After the concert the floor was cleared and dancing was indulged in till  the early hours of the morning, the  temptation of resisting dancing to tho  excellent music provided by, the Dc-  Lair orchestra being too great to make  the happy crowd adjourn earlier.  - The proceeds netted some-fifty dol-,  lars,'which will be used by the order  for  charitable purposes.     ,.  Chilliwnck breeders won nearly all  tho prizes at the Revelstoke poultry  show .  ���������  A . regular, 'meeting' ,of j,tn"e Matsqui  school \ board .was held at,'Clay burn on  Saturday aftornon1/ December 6. All  members of the board werfe present with  the exception of Trustee1 Couroy, who  has been confined to his house through  being injured in falling from the roof  of his barn. Trustee Cruickshanks was  in the chair. .Minutes of; the previous  meeting were  adopted.  Communications were received from  Mr. Robertson, advising the board that  the public works department had been  requested to construct ''I a - four-room  school at Matsqui Village.   ".'  Also that the complaint of the .board  re the poor'quality of the cement work  at the new Poplar school had been referred to the public works department,  and that the providing of; planks to  cross over small sloughs-for children attending the Ridgedale school should be  provided by the council. .-  ���������Fir Tree Lumber Co.,)re -supply  of  wood for the Dunach school.

". A-  ^".Mr. Allan Waters, supervising,'architect-Public , Works   Department,.-was  preVentr-at-the, meeting to take up. the  complaints  of' the aboard in  reference  tp the way Messrs. Robison, Bros.,; contractors of'the Poplar school, had not  used materials as specified, and that the  cement work of the basement was-very  unsatisfactory, also the siding was  of  an inferior grade to" what is called for  in the contract.    The board protested  against the building.in the.present condition being turned over to the municipality.  Mr. Waters assured the board that  it was the intention of-his department  to.have the work done as specified.  The board thanked" Mr. Waters for  his visit and the interest shown in the  complaint of the board.  Trustee  Wooler  reported    that - the  "grounds adjacent to the building had  been  left  in  a  very unfinished  state/  but had now been put in proper shape  by the board.  The minutes of the meeting of November 1 were approved on motion.  The Matsqui council's attention will  be called, on motion of Messrs. Beaton  and Wooler, to the inability of pupils  east of Ridgedale schopl to reach the  school, and the hope was expressed that  necessary assistance be granted. ���������  Accounts were passed by payment.  Mr. G. H. Liddell, who has been accountant in the Royal Bank of Canada  here for the past year, left on Thursday for his old home in Halifax, Nova  Scotia.  Mr. Liddell's absence will be missed  in athletic circles, as he was ono of the'  foremost promoters in good, clean spirt,  and his many friends in Abbotsford, including children, maidens, and parents  .of marriageable daughters, testified to  his popularity by decorating his trunks  and other travelling articles, which he  inadvertantly left at the station, with  all manner of cards wishing him "bon  Voyage.';  Mr. J. B. Johnson, of Vancouver, sue-  V -IT"     -s.  ceeds Mr. Liddell as accountant in the  Royal Bank here.  SALE OF IRK  WAS A SUCCESS  The-Sale of Work which was held   -  in the Alexandria Hall on the-afternoon  and  evening  of Thursday, Dec.   11th,  under the auspices of the-W.

Professor Hill-Tout mounted aT  chair and proceeded to dispose of by  auction of many of the left-over articles  of apparel and some remanents of home  cooking. Some of his commentaries  and displays for effect were quite '' convulsing" and brought forth many, bidders.

WILL HOLD DANCE  ON NEW YEARS E������������  It has been decided by the Committee '  of Management of the Quadrille Club  to   hold  their  regular  dance on  New  Year's Eve instead of on the 2nd of  January.   In order that the corner stoa*"  of good wishes for a bright and happy  new year can be well and  truly laid  the dance will be prolonged to 1 0 'clock.  It  is  expected  that  this  change  will  prove a most popular one and that there  will  be  a large  attendance  in  conee- ���������  quence thereof.  On Sunday last the C. P. R. put into  effect a slight change in the local time  schedule/, which on tho whola is &  great improvement on the old one.

Th'ero was "a good slibwing'of flowers  chrysanthemum's'and carnations, cut,  .aud begonias ahd'i'crris and" other "'seasonable plants"'"  It is pleasing 'to see such, an interest taken in the schools of the  district, and it is sure to result' \x\  benefit   to the whole district  One af the best advertisements of  a town or district is' a good school  system and this can be., best accom  plished by every person taking 'an  interest in the cost of running the  schools and having good and mod  ern. school buildings, situated at  convenient points throughout the  district.  Thereis.no    question, about     it  but that' the district  has had' "during'the past few years  capable "and  reliable" men at     the head    of the  school system. Anything that they  have done should, bear' the strictest investigation,'with' credit   , to  the board,   and if mistake's"" 'have-  been made,'   through'lack of  judg-  anant or for any Mother cause, these  should,' also bo thoroughly   considered,   for future  guidance.   '     But  .on the whole it- will -be  found the  various boards  have carefully and  conscientiously "-weighed all matters before "acting.  : We believe that when a1 full    and  detailed'statement    as asked    for  has been made public, it will     be  , shown conclusively "that' the' municipal schools are a higher jiro rata  par pupil ' than-the Mission     City  schools.-.;0The centralization  of    a  school system-   of a district     has  been considered the cheapest meth  'od of education,     where that 'centralization has'been workable,    as  to final results  we are'-not   always  prepared to say. '���������        In a graded!  school .the classes are  larger     and  for.o teacher has more pupils under  >her charge taking up the same sub  ject'at the same"time,"and"' there  !may be less 'iad'epehdent'   thinking'  'on the part of the.   pupils than in  I a smaller class."   But the cost   '    of  !ieducation in the'graded '-school    is  i also less:v However' the higher'  cost'"6f the education of the pupils  in theicbuntry schools 'cannot be  remedied'until such .time-' as-the  district becomes' more thickly settled, and'with the increase of the  number bf pupils in a school the  cost pro rata will-diminish.

While it   may " appear'  . unjust to    tax a man   for his work yet  ��������� at the same time    it  is also unjust   to  w t tax capital invested  in  u district.

It was/the announcement  of Mrs. Butler's tragic ( accldeut and.  the mystery that surrounded it. Theif  was no mention of Schwartz.  Bella told me that she had lived with  ��������� Mrs. Butler since she was sixteen and  had-only left when the husband's suicide had broken up the home. I could  get nothing else out of her. but gradually BelrH's share in. the mystery-was  coming'to light.

"Fleming moved  Into Butler's place as treasurer and  took LIghtfoot as his cashier. That  kept the lid on. Once or twice when  thero was an unexpected call for funds  the treasury was almost empty, and  Schwartz carried things over himself.  I went to Plattsburg as Mr. Fleming's  private secretary when- he became,-  treasurer, and from the first I knew  things were even worse than the average state government,  "Schwartz and Fleming had to hol<!  together. They hated each other, and  the feeling was trebled when Fleming  married Schwartz's divorced wife."  Margery looked at me with startled,  Incredulous eyes. What she must have  seen confirmed Wardrop's .words, and  she leaned back in her chair linip and  unnerved. But she heard and comprehended every word Wardrop was saying.  "The woman was a very ordinary  person, but it seems Schwartz; cared  for her, and he tried to'stab Mr. Fleming shortly after the marriage. About  a year ago; Mr. ��������� Fleming said another  attempt had been made on hi3 life with  poison. ,.Thlngs were-not going-well*  at the treasury..

If it went down there would- be an  ugly scandal, and Fleming'would go.  too. His'notes for half a million were  there, without security, 'and he dared  not show the canceled- notes he had  with Schwartz's indorsement.  "I'm,not proud ofcthe rest of the  story.

"I, was engaged to marry  a girl who was everything on earth to  me. and���������I was private secretary to  (he state-treasurer, with the princely  salary of such a position.   -  "Mr. Fleming came back here when  the  Iiorough-bank  threatened failure  and tried'to get money enough to tide  ov,er the trouble.
