"Whenever the passage of the imperial train is to take place the fact  is not known to the chief railiway official until the same day, and to his  subordinates until a quarter of an  hour before the arrival" the correspondent says. "In the otation the  lines are all kept free."  Describing one sch.'arrival  of the   .  kaiser's train the correspondent says:  "All  workmen on    this    occasion  whether Belgian or German, were dis  patched   outside,  and  access  to .tho  station was forbidden.-   This applied  to all passengers as well.    The military  guards occupying  parts of the  station and environs were ordered to  leave their posts and pile their arms.  The only persons allowed on the pint-  form wer(J the station master, his em  ployees appointed to work the signals  .nd  the  military chief.     There  was  .10   guard   of  honor,   no   manifestations whatever.  This clearing of tiie stallon takes  place at. avary station through which  ��������� lie train passes, which it does at the  maximum regulation speed. At Brussels delrainment took place opposite  h0  Place  Rogier,  which   is a  tnilit-  ry pc:-t since the occupation.'  "The space in front of the station  which is always forbidden ground to  passengers,  was occupied   by several  motor cars.    As  soon as   the  kaiser  entered  his  car  the small   fleet  ran  swiftly   to   the  Pare     Rue     Royals,  where the kaiser stayed several hours  "During the presence of the kaiser  the  officials  always  display  the  utmost nervousness in fear of anything  taking place, and they always breathe  a sigh of relief when their master is  gone.    The fact that even the military are obliged   to retire and  pile  their arms seems  to suggeat  a   distrust his own army.''  Mr. Ernest Phillips of Mt. Lheman  was in Mission City this week. ���������tsy-*���������-fr<M������riinnii'.j ������  *ggL Agg^gO^Jg^^gg^-0^  B"  ������-  THE ABBOTSFORD POST  VubilHlik-a    cver>     b-riduy    by     Hie-   i'osi  I'u'blJ^.'i-'^'^^i-JlJ"1'.

M. C. in providing sivtable places of recreation in  the various training camps and in the war zone. This activity  on the part of the Knights of Columbus led to the publishing of  the fact that between thirty-eigh timcl forty per cent, of the volunteers of the United States army and navy are Catholics. We  presume there is another reason for printing this, one made  necessary, no doubt by the fact that bigots throughout the country have ever attempted to reflect upon the national loyalty, of  Catholics. It has been held to be a proper answer to show that  in all "of our wars many thousands of Catholics have enlisted  and that they are enlisting in vase numbers to contribute their  lives and their power to the overthrow of German tyranny. The  reason other denominations havo not been classified is, therefore, self-evident. Nor is there roMii for legitimate criticism because there has been an aimoune';iiie:it of the number of Catholics under arms as soldiers and r.ailors of this nation.���������America-Reveille, Bellingham, Wash.  Notes From Hatzic  Great sorrow is heing felt throughout the district- over the death ,of Mr.  Hodgson, who "was one of the oldest  and most respected residents of Hatzic.     Following   his   removal  to   the  Vancouver   General   Hospital,' where.  X ray examinations showed the serious consequence of his recent accident,  little  hope had  been held out  for his recovery,-and death occurred  on, Sunday-hi  the    presence  of  his  wire  and  family.  The deceased  was  well   and     favorably   known- in ...the  Eraser Valley, whore he' lias engaged  in farming for 25 years and his untimely demise will be greatly regretted  by a, large    number of the old-  timers in  the Valley,  who  were  his  closest friends.- '   -  Funeral service "and burial will  take place on Wednesday morning,  following the arrival of the morning  train from Vancouver. Burial cere-  mony will be performed an the Hatzic cemetery where the deceased will  bo laid lo rest. Funeral services will  be held in the hall at 10:30 a.m.  The sympathy of tho district is extended to M?s. Hodgson and family.  The  Hatzic Shingle  Mill  will   resume activities    at the first of the  month. '���������  Great excitement was caused at  last Sunday's-afternoon service in the  hall, when the woodwork behind the  stove was discovered to be afire.-  Prompt measures, however by somo  members of- the congregation, succeeded in extinguishing the blaze before any damage had- been 'done.  Luckily the- unexpected happened at  a' time when the building was occupied or therwise we might have had  a sad tale to relate.  The ��������� Badmlngton club entertained  Mission visitors at their afternoon  session on Saturday. The ' visiting  players were treated to refreshments ,  'during the' afternoon. The D.

All of which goes to show and  prove that which we have always demonstrated, that splitting wood is a  most dangerous, practice and should  be  done  away  with  altogether.  Election day passed off very quietly at Hatzic and only a small vote  was polled. The results appear to  have been satisfactory to most everybody who has expressed themselves  thereon. Mr. Knight was given a  handsome plurality of first choices  here as also Mr. Catherwood and Mr.  Ferguson.  Gnr.  R.  0.  Fisher of  Vancouver,  spent the week end here.

In an editorial on ."The Unused Talent," the Greenville  News quotes the following from a writer named Gray:  "Full many a gem-'of purest ray serene e  The dark unfathomed caves of ocean bear,  Full many a flower is born to blush unseen,  And waste its sweetness on the desert air."  The News does not give Mr. Gray's initials or tell where he  lives, but the lines he wrote are so pretty that we expect to hear  from him again. There is a flaw, however, in what'he wrote���������������������������  due doubtless to haste. It is so patient that it will appear to the  average reader, and so we feel that pointing it out is almost a  work of supererogation. But for th-3 sake of those who are not  quite up to the average we mention the fact that it is in the third  line. A flower is not born; it blooms.  It would be permissible to use the word "born" instead of  'blooms" if the'meter required it, but it dosen't. In fact the meter  HATZIC WOMAN'S INSTITUTE.  On January 17, the annual meeting of the Hatzic W. I. took place in  the Hatzic hall. Owing to the stormy  weather there was only a small attendance.

Brewster returned here today from a  tour on the mainland and will cany  go into coiisuliation with lion. John  Oliver, presumably on the !>. a. K.  situation. In his speech at Vancouver dast evening thu premior touched  on a new point in tho problem relating to (he railway and i(u position  with the govoruinuni, and the hoiifi-  holdors. ' Thu Prime Aliiiisiur mentioned tho posihility of a contention  being advanced by the lawyers Unit  the P. G. E. bonds of 'more than  twenty nii'liiori dollars would now fail  due and have to be taken over at  .par when they had sold at Joss than  ������0 in the market.  Ilrjnying iJonds  One.  liiciuiry into this phase ot'the mm.-  ter today recalls that in the agree-  ,ment with Foley, Welch ������;i Stewart  there is contained a clause' to the  general effect that in case :.he railway  closes up business tho bonds men become payable, no matter what the  date of maturity on. their face. The  object of this provision doubtless os-  iginallp was to provide a club to compel the company to maintain operations'. ' !  But under the new' developments ���������  of the lawsuit between the govern- '  ment and the company, the latter  may wish to precipitate a crisis and  the possible definite closing up of  business operation on the P. G. .K\  beccnies a matter of much significance. A lawyer said today that the  company might now decide to quit  and practically "pull out" of the  railway.

Also Mr. Pat Welch mi<?ht  in view of lawyers be m a better  position to enforce rights of possession as builder of the line. The  question of what lien he would have  :against the railway, and thus against  .the government, also enter into th������  tangle..  That the    government    is    giving  much  attention  to possible developments may be judged from a speech  made a few days ago at Alberui ':  Hon. John Oliver.     He intimated  ;.'  had c'ome into possessio-.i of some interesting news regard!...-; the P. G. ...  matter and after consulting his Layers he might be prop:*:- yd  to svoi.r  publicly.

Doubtless the sufferers have by this time been  able to examine and determine what trees are'.past redemption  and how many may have a chance of recovery.  Here we would like io offer a word of advice, says Garden  Orchard and Farm, of Vancouver., B. C. It is that so far as the  heme gardens'aro concerned at any rate, every-effort be made  to repair and  restore as far  as  possible.    Many  trees  badlly  BRITISH COLUMBIA TELEPHONE Co.  broken and twisted may probabiy be repaired. Broken branches  may be staked up in many instances, the splintered parts bound  with sacking and plastered with clay and dung mixed, and by  this means many trees may possibly be put in shape to bear  a crop next season and for several seasons. Every broken  branch treated in this way. should be pruned considerably, both  io reduce the weight and lessen the demand on the parent trunk  for the fractured part cannot transmit the rising sap in sufficient quantitiees to support the full head of the branch.

This  year     the     id-a  ought to be not merelly to grow potatoes, but to grow good potatoes and  all kinds, of vegetables.       Last ve-.ii-  thousands of city people did a fitt>-  ��������� gardening for the first Urn*        tips  year their epxerience will be of value  and the results should be in proportion to their proficiency .  and even while the house or store is burning to begin planning  to rebuild and start afresh.  The fruit growers .of the Fraser Valley must remember this  and at least, start repair work at once. It will be a heartless,  tedious business perhaps, but the best should be made of every,  bad bargain. The wrecked ship, worn and battered on the rocks  is often salved, repaired and put to work again. The sunken  hull is often, raired to sail the surface of the sea and again carry  profitable cargoes.  ��������� The spirit which prompts this must be carried Into the  wrecked orchards and by propping up here, binding there and  r.raning ail round, trees which now look hopeless may possibly  be preserved to provide many a dish while a younger generation of trees is coming forwarad to take their places.  We write this without a i'uli knowledge of the disaster,  which we fear it is, but in the hope that we'may thereby en-  courag many tree owners to look for the silver lining which  may be found behind the blackest cloud.
