' This  Avia and the IasVof 3-2 entitles the  Mission club to hold- the cup till  next 'season'.

The game started at 3:15 in the  pouring Tain which kept up nearly  the whole time;;  Owing to the late  ness of the houri only thirty min-,  ute halves could;b"e .played..During  the first ten minutes the game was  even,  both  forwardllines, .making  dangerous rushes/:'Then' Cox  hit  the post  with  a'.'*\dangerous, shot  and  afterv that tite 'Mission   forwards- had ^t'<pretty-mnch^theip o w'n  way   They,/failed however tu score  in the first half, though many shots  were sent, in.   p.

On changing over the local  boys' went'right after, the Abbots,  ford goal.and after a   pretty bit  of combination Mitchell  scored Mis  sion's first goal with a   shot which  was pracricaily .imsaveable.     This  seemed to take tha heart" out    of  Abbotsford 'and from that on the  Mission defence held them  easily  A   little later Cox and McTaggart  who  were  playing, great   football  made a   fine run up and Cox scored  the  second  goal  with   a   low  shot which slipped through      the  goal-keeper's Kands.   This practically   decided  the   game   but      B.  Catchpole, the- junior, centre  forward thought there could be       no  harm) in (getting .another "which-- he  did.  The Abbotsford. forwards-head-  ed by McGowan and Brown made  some desperate rushes but could  ot pass MeLelian the big centre  half  who   was  playing  a star  game. . Just before the whistle  blew for time Mitchell toott the ball  up the right wing and passed .back  to McTaggart who scored" The  referee couldn't Bee it that way and  decided it was off-side.

Often tho  only reason why a particular variety  -.>.s' become popular .in certain localities is because when first Introduced  It gave an *,xtra high yield, due more  to exceptionally good' treatment In a  favorable season than high -yield Ing  qualities of the variety. When a new  variety Is ,ir,troducdd .In; a-communlty  or on a farm it should alwaya bo  grown .in the same field and boside  u well-kho.wn or standard variety. II  is difficult to determine the' possibility  . of; tiny   variety   when: comparing   a'  field  on  one  end   of  the  farm, with  , another on the other end, or what 1b  still worse, comparing one man'a Hold  with that of his neighbor.  A Cause of Sickness  The primary" cause of many Internal complains of hogs Is the fermentation set up In the hog tub, in/to  which refuse, often quite unsuitable  for food, may be thrown, and In which  which refuse that may originally be  suitable changes Its character. It is  difficult to avoid trouble of this kind,  But there io need for some - correction of the idea that anything, however offensive, may be safely fed to  pigs, for many, cas-as of serious Illness  have been traced to the hog tub.  One warning io specially called for  ���������to beware of the presence of salt  and soda In the swill.   Both, In anything;  like  large  quantities,  are  poisonous- to pigs, and this  fact Is ,not  to be set aside because someone' has'  given his piga a little of either and,  found   that  no  harm resulted.    The  ewill in use in, many places receives  the remains on the dinner plates,, on  each of which there is probably some  salt, the contents of the washing up  pans,   and   other   kitchen   liquids   In  which soda and salt have been used,  and the amount that may unwittingly bo given'to the pige In this way is  sufficient to cause sickness.

A corner in the collar  or in the attic may be used, where a  few roots may be set In a large box  or   on   the   floor   itself. ���������   Pack   the  frozen roots close together filling In  pan    packing,   with    earth    to    hold  moisture.    Cover the crows and keep  them moist.    Water slightly until the  shoots appear when more water may  be  given.    Unless  the roots are ne-  -glected   and   allowed   to   decay  after  they   have   ceased   bearing,   there   is  no    objectionable    feature    whatever  connected  Avith  forcing in  the houBO  as   very   little' artificial   moisture   is  required  and consequently, no dampness or objectionable odors-are given  ��������� off.     One   cf   the   pleasing   features  of l,he work is that after the forcing  part   is   ovr-r   the   rhubarb   may' be  matured at will.    Forcing may begin  at once or the roots can be kept in.a  dormant state for  weeks  as desired.  If  a  plentiful .supply  of  roots  is  at  hand   and   the, room   for   forcing   is?  Minuted  two crops may-be  grown la  succession.  .

The  site  of  the   town   is   a  -commanding one and ��������� the country- is  visible round about for miles in all  directions. ,  Ample   divisional   yards  have been provided for railway purposes/and with an-eye to future development'the  rati way  company" has  .reserved a block for'1 school" purposes,  another block /for municipal- bullding3,  and. a large area for a'public park.  The two principal Streets  are Royal  avenue and Windsor-'street,  and  are  each  one  hundred  feet  wide.  Coronation town wais so named by  the Canadian Pacificvp%ople, and prior  to the sale of dots a���������few weeks ago.  the site had no particularly big mark  j on the map of Gan'ada. Coronation.  In fact, was hot more-than nominally  in existence !;until" the; ��������� date of the  sade, though'a-few''enterprising merchants had erected -temporary shops  and huts on lots which they Intended  to bid for at-'the .sale, 'but which they  had not yet secured.' Most of the  men In possession -evidently were successful in getting legitimate title to  their holdingSi for, only one man Is  spoken of bb having to vacate after  the sale, and he furnished one of the  surprising scenes of an eventful day  by hitching up ten teams of horses  to his double^fronted hardware store  and moving the structure -intact on  to hie new lot. ���������  On the evening before the sale the  firet passenger train,. filled with  purchasers from all points of the  continent, arrived In Coronation just  two hours after the arrival of the  !-track. Few of. the/travellers, however, were aware of the -fact that they  were practically travelling oyer new  steel as fast as It- was being laid  down, and It. was not until the  morning. following that' the scene  of the track-laying; - machine at  work a scant mile ahead of their  train was revealed to the astonished  gaise of the passengers:  Perhaps the most -. commendable  piece of .enterprise of a remarkable  community,.however, was the issuing  of a newspaper, the Coronation News  Review, on the day. of the sale. The  paper appeared early in the afternoon  and contained a full report of tho sale  proceedings during the morning.'--  Mr.  Andrew  Broder first  saw  the  light of day at Franklin Centre, Que.,  on 18 April 1845, and was educated at  Malone,   N.I3,,   and   Huntingdon   Academy, Que., subsequently transferring  to the Dundas district where he hiis  since continued to coax a fairly comfortable  living from  the land, being,  Indeed, recognised as one of the particularly Intelligent .mombers of that  section of humanity  which sticks by  the   original   working  programme   of  Father Adam of ancient and" hlstorfc  fame.      With     a    natural     business  aptitude, full of the humor that never  gives   offence,   sporting   a   delightful  Irish   brogue,   and    with    that   fondness for politics which is accredited to  overy   second   member  of   Erin's- big  family, Mr. Broder Is one of the really  popular men-, in his  district,  and  indeed over many miles both near and  far.  For a time he acted as Collector of  Customs ai Morrisburg, Ont, but resigned in 1896 to take a seat In the'  Commons where he has been noted as  a speaker with few equals, quiet, but  Incisive in style with wonderfully appealing perorations. Mr. Broder is  married and has three sons and one,  daughter.  As portraying one  phase of a pra-  emlnently   "straight"   sample   of  the  human family, ��������� not too often  met  with ��������� the story Is worth  re-telling  of how Mr. Broder, on one occasion,  set himself a very stiff task in order  that only 'a clean name could be associated "with   his   family.     Some   of  Mr.  Broder's  relatives  died  and  left  debts.    These debts preyed upon the  mind of Andrew In  his young days.  "The name of Broder will be clean,"  he said to himself.   "These debts will  be paid."    He sacrlfied everything to  that    end,     the    hard-earned    pence  which   he   managed   to   save   brought  down the debt but slowly.    He could  have made success for himselfhad the  money   which   he   paid   away   been  utilized as capital with which to further, his   own  progress,   but  Andrew  put  away   the "temptation   from  him,  and In due time was able to point to  a clean family slate.

Along    towards    his  thirtieth   year   he   began   to   exhibit  evidences of ah inward desire to occupy a parliamentary chair, and took  the field as candidate for his native  constituency.   His first three attempts  were, however, unsuccessful.    He was  beaten  for  the Nova  Scotia ��������� Legislature in 1894, and in 1896 and 1900 was  defeated in running for the House of  Commons, his successful opponent on  both these occasions being Sir Charles  HIbbert Tupper.
