The provincial government has  spent a good deal, of money���������and the  delegation paid a- tribute to the department by saying it had been well'  spent���������in building two or three'im-/  portant roads'across Matsqui. One  of these is*! the . international road  ���������from Mission 'City'to. the-boundary  line The-other is the link of .the inter-provincial "highway, which makes  or will, make when connected thro'  a'cut-off of. fourteen miles on. the  route to Chilliwack.

' ,  The Matsqui people have it all figured out that if the' public works,  department will dredge out a deep  channel leading .from the pumping  station at the dyke, back across the  district and alongside the roads, the  result will be a very great increase  in the benefit of those important  roads, which form sections of the two  of the main highways the provincial  government  is  striving to  complete  and maintain.   *   OBJECTIONS TO THE  MUNICIPAL ACT  \  LENTEN SEASON NOW ON  G.

Special observance of this season has been made by the Christian  churches, especially the Anglican,  Roman Catholic and Lutheran den  ominations, from very early times in  commemoration of Christ's forty  days' fast and as a season of special  penitence- and, preparaton for the  Easter feast and is used as a profitable exercise by many member's of  other Christian churches.

WINS   SEWING   MACHINE  LEPROSY  DISCOVERED  IN  SASKATCHEWAN  ���������'' The first case bf leprosy ever discovered in'Saskatchewan has been  reported. The patient is a woman  living in the north west part of Saskatchewan. A doctor discovered a  suspicious case some few weeks ago dow.  and immediately reported to the authorities. Dr. Seymour completed  arrangements for a thorough diagnosis of the case and the report made  confirmed the doctor's suspicions.  The leper woman is an immigrant.  Frank McCalium, son of Councillor A. McCalium, was the lucky one  out of the 1500 holders of keys in  therecent drawing for a fine' drop  head Wlliiams Sewing Machine, the  Pioneer Store has been advertising in  the Post for the past two months The  lad was one of the last to purchase  goods entitling him to the key, but  his was the first key that Mr. .B. B.  Smith, the proprietor of the Pioneer  Store tried on Friday morning last,  with the gratifying result to the holder that the lock opened and the machine was his. Not wishing the machine,* Mr. McCalium has devised a  novel way of disposing of it, and any  one wishing a, first-class sewing machine may receive one by sending in  a sealed tender, stating the price  they are willing to pay for it. When  all the tenders have been received,  Mr. Smith will open them and the  highest one will get the machine. In  the meantime the machine will be on  exhibition in the Pioneer Store win-  A number of objections to the proposed amendments in the municipal  clauses act- were registered by the  Maple Ridge 'councillors at a special  meeting held on Saturday last, and a  number of resolutions calling the attention of the Attorney-General to  the changes as they affect Maple  Ridge, were drafted and will be forwarded to Victoria.  The proposal to appoint a municipal inspector occasioned a long discussion, the outcome of which was a resolution that "the council is not in  favor of the appointment of an inspector ofs municipalities as it feels  that- the authority vested in him is  too great and would curtail the proper administration of council work.  Coun. Fulton expressed the opinion that the proposed change, might'  entail.needless expense oh the municipalities as,! under the rule, an investigation of municipal affairs may  be called' by some -disgruntled ratepayer with, a fancied grievance and  the-expense of the inspector's search .  must be borne by* the municipalities  Councillor Martyn thought that the  appointment would be an usurpation  of the'powers given the council by  the people.   The Reeve was responsible to the citizens and in his opinion it might nt be right for the inspector to have the power to set a-  side .the legislation of the board.  * Disapproval, pf -a number of'other  changes was voiced and the feeling  of the bard was shown ,in the following     resolution     "'that  all  appoint  ments  regarding  police  boards  and  other  matters  relating  to  local  affairs, be left as at present provided  for in the municipal clauses act."  ,   The  various  road   beats  and   the  councillors vflio will exercise supervision over tlierri'Were designated by  the council on Saturday last and-will  ,be as follows:    Beats  1-2,  Councillors Ball and Fulton; 3-4, Fulton and  Ansell;   6-7, Ansell   and  Fulton;, 8  Martyn and Dale;   9-10,    Dale    and  Martyn   Road   foremen   were, re-appointed as follows:     J.

P. R. recently is not  being allowed to drop for lack of action in so far as the Maple Ridge  council is concerned at least and at  the special meeting a largely signed  petition from the residents of Whonnock was received and referred to  the municipal solicitor who is taking  the matter up with the board of railway commissioners in an effort to  have the agent re-instated there or at  least to secure better accommodation  for the travelling public than at present obtains. Superintendent Cotteril  of the railway company has promised  to investigate the conditions and to  take some action in the matter in the  near future, but in the meantime the  council will place the facts before  the railway commission.  Mr. J. Vanetta is confined to his  house with a severe attack of grip,  but all hope for Jack's speedy recovery.  DIES  IN THE  HOSPITAL  The death occurred at Dr. Clark's  hospital, Sumas, of Charlotte, three  year old daughter of Mr. and Mrs.  Charles Bell. The little girl had  been ill only a short time and her  sudden demise came as a shock to  the parents.  The funeral took place on Monday  from Mr. Campbell's residence and  was followed by a large number of  sorrowing friends of the family. Rev.  Mr. Campbell officiated.  The bereaved parents have the  sympathy of the community in their  sad loss. ���������:';������������������  Inspector of Customs, Mr. A.

It is not to be expected that in the course of one year the  affairs of such aii association can be brought to such a point of perfection  that everything will run smoothly: but the mistakes of the past season  seem to have been comparatively tew, and the. experience .gained will be  "* of great advantage to those responsible for this year's operations. It may  ly help,matters out considerably.  In the Okanagan last year the United Growers was formed and the  first annual meeting was held the other day. The Vernon News has the  following to say editorially: ,  VThe first annual meeting of the United Growers, which was held 'here  on Monday and Tuesday, in many respects may be considered as one of  the most important gatherings of those interested in farming and fruit  growing that has taken place in the Okanagan for some time. It is gratifying to know, despite certain rumors which were heard previous to the  meeting, the assembly was entirely harmonious, and the delegates left  In co-operation there is strength, and it is the the fruit business  as in any other business. The Mission fruit growers are not in line this  year any more than in the past five years to take advantage of the strength  to be given them through co-operation. Never will the full value of the  soil producing qualities of the "Home of the Big Red Strawberry" besecur-  ed until a thoroughly united effort of all the fruit growers of,the Fraser  Valley become a realized fact in co-bperaton.  The United States is at the present .time, fighting the trusts.. These are  organized for the purpose of selling-either some, manufactured article or  some product of the soil. Trusts are quietly being formed in Canada too.  What about a farmers' or a fruit growers' trust.' If the sons of the soil  would unite for the purpose of marketing their product, it would certain-  be said, we believe, that a good foundation has been laid, upon which may  be reared a business structure that will fully meet the requirements of  those interested in our basic industries of horticulture and farming.  It is doubly pleasing to know this is the case from the fact that, ,in  this connection tlie eyes of the whole province are turned towards the  Okanagan. When the government department under.the control of Hon.  Price Ellison, decided to adopt the course of advancing money, to associations of'this' nature, some thought that the success of the scheme was  at least problematical. It was in this district that the first organization  was formed to take advantage of the new policy; and. it is here where  nearly three-quarters of the.fruit grown in the province is produced, that,  the best opportunity is afforded to work onwards toward complete success  We feel assured that all this policy requires to justify it is a fair trial,0  and we are greatly pleased to find such an unanimous feeling to this effect  as was displayed at this important meeting."

In appointing1 representatives from both sides of,the House the  premier is following the course adopted by ,the Liberal..government. The  committee has a delicate matter on hand out to the satisfaction  of the government���������boL Jides���������and he people     . . . ".  The. west is now more important than the maritime, provinces from .a  population point of, view, and when the next election comes, off, there will  ���������be more representatives in the House at Ottawa, than eyer before,, and.  probably fewer from the east���������New Brunswick, Nova.Scotia and.Prince.  Edward Island���������the west will be better represented, when, it comes to  legislation affecting the Dominion west of the Great. Lakes. , With members"  from both sides of the House there much of a- "gerrymander"  How. the sound of .that rword seems familiar?    On the basis of the-last census, the House of Commons.will have 235  members, this, number having grown from 181 at the time of Confederation.- , British , Columbia, has now , seven members, but. according to. reports we. will have thirteen members It is altogether that the Westminster  district-.will, be provided giving one member for the town of New Westminster, and one for the.rural part of. the district.  As.soon as this division has, been made it will be up to the two parties���������  the Liberals and Conservatives���������to get the .best and most representative  men possible in the field so as to be ready for the next election.  In the above connection it is to be hoped that the district outside of  New. Westminster city will be able: to find a man willing to represent the  dstrict outside the large cities'���������resident in the district^���������it.being understood that our present member will either represent New Westminster on  the hustings or be promoted to the Senate.  It will occasion little surprise to  the average husband to hear that an  action for divorce has been begun in  Paris by a married man on the substantial ground that he refuses longer to button his wife up the back.  This expression is an awkAvard one  but as there seems to be no substitute for it, we must let it go. We all  know what it really means, especially  those who are initiated.  Tis particular victim,,In his plaint  states that he would not mind the  task if it were only occasionally, but  ho says that he is called upon to perform it at least half a dozen tunes  a day. One of the gowns in question  has 47 buttons, and he invariably  finds that when he gets near the'  South Pole there is a lack of symmetry in the opposing halves and  that somehow or other thoro must  have been a faulty connection. Then  of course he has to work backwards,  find the unmated button, or the. unrelated hole, and do it all over again  wherefore. he" asks for legal release  from a slavery worse than death.  Tho case is exactly as stated above  We have ourselves been there. It is  even' woise.' Buttons are by no  means the worst contrivances that  women. use for the purpose of shutting themselves up behind. Buttons  are in themselves bad enough in all  conscience, but , how about these  hooks frisky little abominations grasp between the fingers, still more impossible to insert  into their, receptacles, which are usually made of cotton and therefore  impossible tp detect from the surrounding landscape? A ,more heartrending task could hardly be imagined, and invariably the moment that  success - seems' in-' sight the woman  will either begin to breathe or to talk  The first time we undertook this task  we, halved the difficulties by driving  the'hook firmly and securely into  the material of the' dress, but there;d reasons, why we never attempted., this again.  ,It is very strange why women'have  been unable to achieve a better plan  for closing-, themselves up ' behind.  One would 'think it could- be done  just as. easily in front, or, that it  could be managed by means of a  spring, a lever or a canthook operated' from the van. Just imagine , a  man'fastening his braces up by a row  of minute hooks, invisible eyes or  little thingamajigs that close with a  snap.

Ho therefore proposed  putting in his own plot, and allowing  the other owners to attend to theirs  -and afterwards'send in the surveys  and plans of their own properties  separately.  Moved that the school board and  the council accept responsibility for  payment of their shares of the surveyors' account in  Lot 3fiJJ.

HOUSE IS ENTERED AND  PROPERTY DESTROYED.  SOME HOT AIR DOPE  (From our special correspondent)  The present stringency in the money   market,   whether   Great   Britain  gets involved with Mexico, the latest  styles  in   Tango   skirts, or   whether1  eggs  will   command   a   larger   price  next market day, are not the quest  ions that are  troubling  some  royal  loyal   good, citizens.    The   question  at issue is one of grave importance  and may involve all the cabinet ministers,, the head of the police departments, reeves, councillors, clerks, the  would   be   telephone   and   telegraph  operators, newspaper' correspondents  for foreign and cigarette papers, and  various parties too numerous to mention.       Indeed,     yes,     Abbotsford's  tranquility has been disturbed, it has  been removed, and that without begging leaf or leave of the owner. The  crime occurred sometime���������our reporter could not just find" out what time  it did occurr, although a number.of  friends were asked���������between one, o'clock and the  post  office some day  last week.    The crime was one that  no one would,committ, providing he  did not have a number six foot.      In  the   meantime   the   police, have   no  clues. "" ���������  Mr. J.

A large number of settlers from  the Matsqui Dyking District waited  on the council, setting forth the urgent need of better drainage for the  (From   the  Frasor  Valley Record)  The Great Northern officials are  offering $30,000 reward for the cap  ture of the bandits who held up their  train and deliberately killed three  passengers. The crime was cold  blooded,murder, and the penalty for  such all are familiar with, but the  criminal code should be changed and  a similarly heavy sentence passed, on  any persn or persons who would wantonly and deliberately euter an unoccupied residence and for revenge  or other reason maliciously destroy  personal,property during the absence  of the owner. It is a foregone conclusion that if the, miscreant or  miscreants were brought before a  jury, the jury should have no compunction in rendering a verdict quite  similar to. the above.  One of the most cowardly acts that  has taken place in any civilized community is supposed to have occurred  sometime   between   last  Friday   and  Tuesday, when the home of Mr. F. L.  Ketcheson, of  Hatzic,     was entered  and furniture destroyed.    The party  or parties are supposed to have gained entrance by the back door, after  breaking the china and crockeryware  they turned the,attention to the pia  no, and this being a' little stronger  and  a  harder  undertaking,  necessitated the' use of a hammer, and eventually th-3 front was removed and  part of it found in the gully.    Then  to show what a nice quiet .disposition  the  intruder   had   the   bed  clothing  was thrown in the same place. Not  being content with the work so far  apparently,   several     oil     paintings  which the family prized, were cut out  of their frames and slashed to pieces  After leaving a trail of devastation  through  the  house,  the  garden  came in for its share of destruction  The bees, which Mr. Ketcheson has  just reason to be proud of, were disturbed from their winter sleep ,and  the hives broken.  A number of valuable house plants  were also destroyed.  Mr. and Mrs. Ketchison and family  have been on a visit to Southern California, ' returning home Tuesday afternoon to find their valuable property destroyed in the above fashion.  On Tuesday evening Mr. Ketchison  came into Mission City and notified  Chief Constable Clarkson, who has  the matter 'in hand, and it Is to be  hoped that it will not be very long  before' the *��������� perpetrator or perpetrators are brought to justice.
