ALEXANDRIA NALL  Monday evening will be a treat for,  theatregoers as the Ideal Vaudeville  Co. shows in the Opera House, for  one night only. The show has six big  acts, including that clever little actress,  Gran Martin, who captivates tho audience as soon as she appears on the stage.  The Rose Sisters give some very clever  dancing acts, also some catchy songs,  which seems to keep the audience in  roars of laughter all the, time. The  farce, "Saragota Springs" consists of  a Frenchman, Irish and Jew, comedians,  also there is a race track scene. The  Frenchman is supposed to be an inventor and trys to sell the Irishman and  Jew a doll which lie claims can talk  and walk and they naturally jump at  his offer and of course they get stung  as the doll turns out to bo a real live  girl. Barney Solomon and George  Blake also keep the audience in roars  of laughter with comedy. Tlio Manager, Mr. Brewer, wishes you all a  Merry Xmas and a Happy New Year  and will be pleased to s_ee you next  Monday evening at the show.  Owing to various counter attractions the' Quadrille Club will not  hold their weekly dance on New  Year's Eve, but they will be re-  sumed after New. Year.  -ALDERGROVE NEWS.  Mr. Sutherland, principal of the  Abbotsford school, was the lucky  winner of the three storey cake  which was on display in Lee's bakery window last week.  -' A-*-most- enjoyable* Christmas entertainment was held at Aberdeen school  house on the '19th which was a great  success. The evening was ideal and  the attendance large. Rev. A. C. Alder,  pastor, occupied the chair and in his  own happy method introduced the subjects and persons that took part in a  'lengthy program. Recitations, dialogues, songs and instrumental music  were well rendered. The children executed their' part with feeling and taste.  Aberdeen for years has been fortunate  in having teachers who took a lively interest in the training of the children,  and ono could see, especially in the drill,  how well they succeeded in their task.  The" piece's, too, were a good selection,  chaste and appropriate for the occasion. Santa also made a good personation, was -well received by the people  and helped to distribute the presents.  Tea, coffee and cake were afterwards  served by.the ladies.  Surveyors have spent a whole day  on the John Shortrced farm, a mile  south from here, laying out the land  in ten aero lots for immediate occupation. It is understood that part of  the land is sold and that in the spring  a family is coming to occupy and improve. That will be a much needed  occupancy on this road where the land  is good, but the settlers few.  Mr. Allan Purvis, manager of B. C.  E. It. intcrurbau lines, has received  word that his recommendation that the  company furnish a private ward in the  new building of the Royal Columbian  Hospital has been favorably considered and the ward will ho furnished at  au estimated cost of $175. The ward  will be called B. C. Elcetvic Railway  .Ward. Mr. Purvis took the matter up  with tho company as tlio result of a  request made of him by the Ladies'  Auxiliary of tho hospital.

Mr. Briant, though rather reticient in  giving out news, states it would be advisable to keep an eye on the future  developments in this line.

Mr. Boucher,  on whose property at Hatzic Prairie,  the recent find was made, left on Monday's train for Vancouver, on business  connected -with his discovery. Mr.  Boucher has.just received the following  analysis from a* prominent mining engineer in Vancouver, who was here recently, looking over his place, and who  himself dug the sample up which he  had assayed: "Dear Sir���������The following  is an analysis of tho sample which I  brought down and promised to send  you: Oil, 13.75 per cent.; Coke, 47.27  per cent.; Water, 35.30 por cent; Gas  and loss, 3.68 per cent.; Total 100 per  cent.

These questions have all been taken up by this  League and no doubt will have some  effect.  I regret our meetings have not been  as well attended a3 they might have  been, but our members live quite a distance apart and are very busy men,  having very little time to spare for  public affairs but still at great inconvenience have attended as many as possible.  Your Secretary has .attended at the  oflicc regularly with the exception of a  time during the assizes in New Westminster when subpoened as a witness,  even 'then was at his post when possible.  The promised exhibits have not been  attended to by the Councils and Boards  of Trades as promised, although we had  the best space���������400 superficial feet in  the Club for this purpose,, but we were  fortunate in having a Government exhibit of fruit, etc., which was largely  grown  hr the   Fraser  Valley   and  in  'ins -rand' ,-.theyi.came 'back\r*diseoura'gea.^:'^& ^  -"Tins"; 1% find) is ^one^difhculty.^7*Settlers, ���������^���������*.';-  runnine'  downline  countrr* and-1V am' ''V'V " .  running "down-'-the, country ��������� and-1 T am  sorry to' say^is ,'not confined'- to ,one  section.  ���������'*' - ^ _'.''������������������"���������'  Your Secretary has corresponded -with  such firms as the Yarrow,s shipbuilders  of - the 'Clyde, Scotland; Sir William'  Lever, of Port Sunlight, England, soap-  makers; Sir William" Hartley, of Ain-  tree, Liverpool, England, jam makers,  and numerous other heads of industries  and land seekers, farmers, poultrymen,  fruit-growers, etc. The splendid opportunities of t'e Fraser River and Valley-  have been laid before all of these. Free  sites and cheap sites have been offered  the Yarrows for shipbuilding on the  Fraser. The splendid chances for model  townsites have been laid before Sir  -William Lever for his soap works, now  'about to be established in Burnaby on  Burrard Inlet. Such industries as these  are a benefit to the whole district. The  Douchesncy fruit and vegetable.drying  plant is now established at Ladner after  investigating the Valley through this  League. Sawmill men, drain pipe, box  makers, jam makers, paint workers, iron  pipe makers have gone out in-the Valley with cards of introduction to investigate the possibilities of establishing their industries, but what I find is  that they are not encouraged, but meet  with some pessimist who discourages  them. One man not long ago, who had  some capital, and whom I got a place  on a farm to learn something before ho  purchased land, called to see hie a week  or two ago and told me that he had  been on the farm all summer and that  they made him work from 5 a.m. to  8 p.m., 'and often on Sunday and gave  him eight dollars por month and that  when he wanted to buy some land, he  was asked eight hundred dollars per  acre. Now this young man had money  to buy a place with but got disgusted  with the treatment he had received. I  told him where he could get land for  forty dollars per acre up and gave him  a card of introduction. I have not  heard from him since. Reports from  persons like this.are very harmful to .

Few-  have reason for complaint of the cli-  mate of the Eraser Valley this year.   ,  ��������� Christmas is a * time of giving, in  order' that friends and relatives may  bo, happy, not because of the gift, but  because of the expression of good will  which tho present.brings, and the associations of the ^past extending over a  period of more than nineteen hundred  years. It does us all good to open our  hearts once a year and extend to friend  ami neighbor the good old greeting associated with the season's greetings.  The business pf the country goes on all  just the same, but perhaps a little happier, as a genuine Christmas greeting  is sure to carry with it a warmer feeling in the days that follow. Then the  wish of this paper to all is that this  may be the happiest, merriest Christmas  * ever spent in Mission City and district.  All residents of the north bank of  the Fraser River arc looking forward  to the day when the tram,lino will be  built from Mission City to Vancouver,  and the earlier the date the better most  - residents would like it. The building  has been delayed because pf a bridge  across' the Pitt River, at least that is  one reason given, besides the stringency  'in money. The provincial government  in the purchase of the oid railway bridge  frojn the C. P. R. would undoubtedly  have hastened the .construction of the  bridge so far as they are concerned, and  .we were told sometime ago that as  soon as the plans had returned signed  from' Ottawa, where they are at the  present time, that work would be begun. ;:  '"-The other- day a delegation from  New-Westminster and Coquitlam waited  upon* the' provincial government asking^  that the'"'bridge Ibe made -higher than;  the -present plans called for, -the reason  ���������being given for this that it would assist navigation. Of .cpurse the heads  of the; Victoria, according to the report, "held out considerable hope" that the change would be  ordered." Well, why was not this  thought of before the plans went to  Ottawa?  If the change asked for means anything it means the return of the plans  to the British Columbia government,  ���������then the altering and the return to  Otawa for approval and signature. This ,  means delay in the construction of the  bridge, and-the delay in our tram connections with the coast.  It certainly would have been  much  more   appropriate   if   ' the     complaint '  againBt the present plans of the bridge  had come from some other place than  - New Westminster, .and incidentally Co- (  quitlam.    Of  course  no  one  would  be j  surprised  or have objection to  Mayor j  Mars, but when it comes to New West- '  minster making objections it smacks too  much   of   that   old   feeling   which   has  delayed progress throughout the Fraser  Valley; and the question arises "Does  New Westminster want to see the tram  line built at the earliest possible date,  or is the  complaint at this late  date  done for tho purpose of delaying operations for. selfish reasons?"  THE MARKET  of geese was particularly large.' - Ducks  were also plentiful. Turkeys sold at  32 cents to 35 ceuts live weight, and  at 35.'cents to 40 cents, dressed. Geese  brought from IS cents to 22 cents, live  woight, according to condition, and the  few dressed birds offered brought 30  cents a pound. Ducks sold at practically the same prices. There were lots  of live chickens and not a large offering  of dressed birds. As far as one could  find "out by listening to the dickering  Chinamen the prices were unchanged  from those of last week, JG cents to  22 cents.  The offering of pork was large and  varied in quaKIy. There were grout  heavyweights, mediums and smalls���������  good, bad and indifferent. One big-  porker, weighing 425 pounds, sold at  seven cents; some good looking modi;  urns brought ten cents, good smalls sold  at U to Jl1/.: cents. Thero were three  very poor hogs that no one seemed to  want at 'any price. A few dressed1  suckling pigs sold at from $2.00 to $2.50  each.' Live sucklings brought nearly  the same price, and a fine lot of twelve  three:month-old Yorkshires were bought  by Mr. R. J. Leslie, of Delta, for feeders. Veal was a bit lower in price, I6V2  cents being the highest price for smalls.  Largo veals sold at from 13 cents up.  There was a better supply of pota-  The offerings of flowers and potted  plants was much larger than usual, and  the traders did fine business. Chrysanthemums led in cut flowers, and there  was' a good demand for azaleas, begonias, potted ferns, hyacinths and potted  house shrubs.  There will be a special Christmas  market next Tuesday, and the butchers  promise a showing of holiday stuff that  will be,worth seeing. Then, too, will  come the big display of Christmas  poultry.  EFEBEElETrHIS1  SO DOES THE PRINTER  From the Fraser Valley Record  The smoking concert, supposod to be  held under the auspices of the Chilliwack Athletic Club last Friday evening in the Imperial Hall, from a financial point of view was a decided frost,  but the spectators who were present enjoyed witnessing the various bouts, especially the wrestling match between  Indian Dan' Phillips and Joe Mason,  both ot Chilliwack, which was won by  Phillips after a hard contest.  ' During this bout, much amusement  was caused by the olTicial * timekeeper,  Mr. IT. Sweeney, allowing his chair to  topple backwards, precipitating him to  the mat. The chair won considerable  applause for'winning the first fall.  In the preliminaries, Kid Lewes, of  Mission City, made his debut in the  squared circle, his opponent being Kid  West, of Sumas, the local boy won the  decision  after  several  spirited  rounds.  The main even.t was that of Young  Jackson, the Canadian bantamweight,  who was matched to fight Young" Griff  Smith, of Chilliwack, but as the gate re-  toes than last week.    Good tubers sold f ceipts were not large enough, the latter  declined to go on, but his place was  ably filled by Young Griffo, of Hatzic,  although he wore the famous Jack Johnson smile and very much resembled that  fighter, received the "fatal punch that  put him to sleep���������for about half a sec-  ond���������in the third round. Young Jackson showed himself a clever boxer,, and  no doubt if' matched against someone  in his class would have given a better  exhibition. Mr. Dud. Bryant officiated  as referee to the satisfaction of all,  including the' sporting editor of the  Fraser Valley Record. Very appropriate  music was rendered during.the evening  by, Mr. Rex .Bryant,, assisted by Mr.  C. \   Tuck'ei./        "V-/" *        "*"     ������-:i.  at $1.10 a sack, or $20 by the ton.  Other vegetable prices remained the  same as last week.  Behind the long side table there were  more vendors of such products as eggs,  butter and. dressed birds than has been  seen in the market for many months.  For the first time eggs appeared bearing the rubber stamp of the Surrey  Poultry Association. -They were offered by' G. F. Price,* of Strawberry Hill.  lEggsjsold .at .55 cents, butter at 40  cents  There was a busy scene at New  Westminster's market place this i-ioiu-  nig, the corridors being crowded with  buyers and sellers all forenoon, and  trading being brisk.  Naturally the greatest demand was  for poultry and'us a consequence hogs  that no ono seemed to want', as usual  to dispose of, and the price fell off a  littlo from last week. Beef was a bit I  stronger   in   price. |J$,  The supply of turkeys was not as  large as one would expect within so  few days of Christmas, but the offering  $l������~*  .J������.v~lJ**>  "3  Appearing with the Ideal Vaudeville Go.

Mr. Simpson was well knownin Coquitlam, where he had resided for some  years, previous to "making his home in  Mission City some three years ago.  "While in Coquitlam he took a prominent  part in all civic matters, having served  for several years on the council there.  Mr. Simpson was ovor 70 years of age  at the time of his death, and had been  feeling in the best of health up to a  few days previous to his demise.

We called up the hospital about 10:30
and learned that Mrs. Butler wns sinking. Fred was there and, wilhout
much hope of ^getting anything, we
went over. I .'took Burton In as a
nephew, of the dying woman, and I
was glad I had done it. She was quite
conscious, but very weak. She told
the story to Fred and myself, and In
a corner Burton took it down In shorthand. We got her to sign it about daylight sometime, and she died very
quietly shortly after Edith arrived at 8.
To give her story as she gave it
would be impossible. Tho ramblings
of a sick mind, the terrible pathos of
it all, Is impossible to repeat. She
lay there, her long, thin body practically dead, fighting the death rattle in nor
throat There were pauses when for

he altered greatly;.his wife could only

refused to talk.

finding himself a dupe, had called the
butler from bed and forcibly ejected

the shadowy figure of the other

Then I caught the platform of the last
car as it passed, and that short ride
into town was a triumphal procession,
with the wheels beating time and singing, "It's all the same���the same���to
me���to me."
I called Burton by telephone. We
arranged to meet at a little Chinese
restaurant, where at that hour. 0
o'clock, we would be almost alone.
Burton listened attentively to War-
drop's story as I repeated it.
"So Schwartz did it, after all." he
said regretfully when I.finished. "It's
a tame ending. It had ail the elements
of the unusual, aud it resolves Itself
Into an ordinary, everyday man to
man feud. I'm disappoiuted. We
can't touch Schwartz."
"1 thought the Times-Post was hot
after him."
"Schwartz bought the Times-Post at
3 o'clock this afternoon," Burton said,
with repressed rage. "I'm called off.

Fleming and Schwartz from the'bouse,
Ellen Butler had been horrified, sickened by what she regarded as the vul<
'garity of the occurrence. But her loyalty ,to her husband never wavered.
Butler was one honest man against
a "complete organization of unscrupulous ones. His disgrace, imprisonment
and suicide at'tho White Cut had followed in rapid succession. With his
death, all that was worth while In his
wife died. Her health was destroyed;
she became one of the wretched #rmy

to retaliate, lo pay back iu measure
full and rnuuing over,' her wrecked
life, her dead husband, her grief and
her shame.
She laid her "plans with the caution
and absolute'recklessness of a diseased

One of the  clerks    approached    and  asked   if   he  wished to purchase anything.   'Oh, no.'  said the man, 'I just .dropped in for a  few minutes.'    After half'"an hour had  passed, the, manager of the store,  becoming   curious,   approached   him   and  asked   what   could   be   done   for   him.  'Why, nothing that I know  of,'  said  the man, 'You see T have nervous prostration and the doctor told me to stay  in a quiet place.   Noticing that you do  not advertise, I thought this would be  about the quietest place I could find.'  Let me tell you it was anything but  quiet there for five minutes.    The poor  little man found himself in the street  ���������wishing that he had landed on a feather bed.    But the next week ihe store  surprised itself with a big display ad.  in one of the home papers.''

High price of land in the  ,,Valley' is  another  jar  to   its  development.    Numbers who have investigated  the Valley and looked into the prices  have  gone  elsewhere,  as   land   on   the  Island  and  on   the' Skeona   River  and  on the line of the Grand Trunk Pacific  can ho purchased from seven dollars an  acre up, less even than the Government  price, owing to speculators getting hold  of'this land at ono dollar per acre just  before the Government raised the price  to ten.    One'man who had one hundred  thousand dollars was greatly taken with'  the Fraser .Valley but would not pay  tho price, went up the coast and sot-  tied there. ,   ���������   ,  portalion, the Dominion and Provincial  reports as to its being the richest agricultural district in British Columbia,  but they say, "We can invest our money  iu mortgages and make more than we  can out of an acre at such high prices.  Laud in a few instances, in particular,  cleared land have been reasonable,  much more so than unimproved. Of  course speculation the last few years  has been rife and we cannot blame the  farmer for trying to get all he can for  his land, but so little farm laud has  changed hands the last year or two, 1  think it is proof that the price must  come down to a proper business basis.  Your Secretary has written to Sir  Richard McBride, asking him for a  grant to help the League in 1D.1-1.' To  this I have not had reply as' yet. I  have also written to the-Minister of  Agriculture asking that he-publish a  booklet on the Fraser Valley providing  we give the data. The'Government is  now publishing pamphlets on individual  districts, and 1 ,havc pointed this out  aud stated in my letter that as por  Provincial and Dominion reports, the  Fraser Valley is the richest agricultural  district in British Columbia.  Since April 1st, 1913, we have sent  out into the Fraser Valley one hundred  and eleven persons to investigate its  possibilities. Included in them arc industries: Sawmill, 2; soap marking, I;  paint, J; sash and door, 1; box making,  1; shipbuilding, 1; fruit drying, 1; iron  pipes, 1; jam making, 1, about an average of eleven per month. The results  of this we do not know yet, some have  settled, including the Douchesney fruit  and vegetable drying establishment at  Ladner, employing about twenty hands,  all white. This firm is, T believe, contemplating extending their business aud  opening in some other part of the district. The Sherwin-Williams Paint  Company contemplate coming here, also,  as a result of the "Patronize I-Iomt,  Produce Campaign," which is now in  the air, which was also started by this  League. Tho Sir William Levers Company have purchased seven acres in  Burnaby and a warehouse site for their  works. ' The box-making at-Abbotsford  is still, I believe, on the tapis, the shipbuilding not certain of yet. The jam  making was nofc encouraged in the  places called on from what 1 can hear.  The other industries I have not heard  the results of their enquiries. But I  certainly think wKen industries "like  these arc seut out into the district to  investigate, the representatives ought  to be encouraged. Some of the farmers  have purchased land and settled down  in Maple Ridge, Langley and Chilliwack. One person in another part left  for reason stated before. So that at"  present we do not know the real results  of the work of. the League.    We" have  1 believe if all the municipalities  would join this League the work could  be carried on for about $12,00 per  month each, which is a very low rate a  month i'or advertising, when we consider that we obtain literature free and  if we can induce, the Government to  publish the pamphlet as suggested by  your Secretary, and they may also give  a grant as requested, if they 'do this  it can be done for even less than $12.00  per month and T believe it is well worth  carrying on this League's work. As  E have said before hundreds come to  this office who have never heard of our  fine farming district and even if we  succeed in locating only a few industries and settlers, the cost is well paid  Mr.   Pcarce,   a  Cambridge  graduate,  the  advantage  of the Progress  Club's  -literature which we have, obtained free.  The following have been distributed  free of all cost except stamps to this  League:  Vancouver and its Neighbors���������a  pamphlet dealing with the Fraser Valley.    1,500 copies.  Government pamphlet.   10,000 copies.  Opportunities in British Columbia.  8,000 copies.  Municipal pamphlet���������Fraser Valley.  2,100  copies. '  '���������  No doubt but that these will all bring  results in time, as we are constantly  replying to' enquiries from many parts  of the world and although we have not  had as  good  results  as  hoped  for,  all  called on mc in the Fall and in conversation with him, learned he was about  to go to England. 1 induced him to  -visit the Fraser Valley and see it beforo  he sailed.

Mr. Steel, of Massachusetts, U. S. A.,  was here with mo with the same object  in the Eastern states. He also secured  literature from me.
