Mission, July 3���������A youth  named Davis, son of a well  known Dewdney farmer, appears to be in line for a Carnegie medal yesterday in an  heroic rescue in a drowning accident. Mr. Tom Foley, a well  known Dewdney farmer was  drowned but his son was got  out of the water in time to save  his life.  Mr. Foley and  tempted to cross  small boat. They were almost  across when Foley stood up iu  the boat ready to leap ashore,  At that moment the boat   tip-  his   boy   at-  a slough in a  ped over and both father and  son sank. Young Davis was in  a field near by. Pie ran to the  rescue, dived and brought up  the boy who quickly recovered.  Then Davis succeeded in locating the body of Mr. Foley and  quickly brought him in but life  was extinct. Pte. Chris Foley  a son is at the front.  General regret is felt at the  death of Mr. Foley, who had  been a resident of the district  for a number of years.  NOTICE  MARRIED���������Mr.     Ctooi-go'     Kutt     of  Mission City and Miss Lizzie McDonald of Nicomen island, were  united in marriag-p on Saturday  last at the Methodist church by-  Rev. Mr. Butler. They will reside in Mission yity.  The W. C. T. U. members gave a  farewell party at the house of Mrs.  Boyd for Mr Cobley and Mrs. Cobley.  Mrs. Cobley has been an active member for years and will be greatly  missed. Our loss will be Vancouver's  gain, where Mrs. Cobley will find lots  of work of a similar kind.

As  the gathering assembled Mrs. Boyd  and Mrs. Campbell received and asked each person what, they would (to  towards the programme and in that  way got twenty numbers. It showed  some talent that we did not know we  had: songs from Mrs. Hutchison, Mrs  Groat, Mrs. King, Miss Kennedy and  Miss Roberts, a reading by Mrs. Ferris, also one by Miss Steede, recitations by Mrs. Parton. and Mrs. Kerr.  An address from Mr, Campbell who  was chairman and is also president of'  the W. C. T. U. A short address was  $iveh by Mr. Campbell but as he became overcome with laughter by the  replies from members he had to take  his seat without finishing. Jean Alanson gave a beautiful selection on  the piano Mrs. Boyd gave the opening selection on the Edison. The  Misses Steede and Jackson gave two  excellent selections on violin and  piano, and "then some."

He   intended to run them   one  only, but found he had to  them all week to clean up.  lastly, the berries    were  weak, most of    them    arrived  fairly nice, but    collapsed    almost at once    becoming    soft  and messy.    The large berries  do not sell good, people think  none in,  and when are green  tipped are just about unsalable.  The market is now strong at $3  netting    the    growers    $2.20.  this is as high as the public will  pay, but they   should   hold   at  that, as Crestons are practically  all going east, mainly to   Sap-  kachewan.    Much  will  depend  on the quality, if are- soft cannot be reshipped to the country  and become messy,  low pri-" *s  will have to be made to   move  them but if firm    and   bright,  should hold firmly a $3.  .VERNON  FRUIT CO.

Nothing has ever been  heard like it in Mission City before and the hope has been expressed by many that the Chautauqua may come back again  next year. , .

Roughly speaking, the bees that  are in the hives at the commencement of the honey-flow gather the  crop, while the brood builds up the  colony for next year, unless there is  to be another important honey-flow.  This brood is very valuable for forming nuclei, because these, started  early with a laying queen, or ripe  queen-cell, will build up into strong  colonies before winter. Increasing  in this way with brood from strong  colonies during the honey-flow is the  basic principle upon which an apiary  can be quickly built up while at the  same time an almost full honey-crop  is secured.  In, newly-formed nuclei containing  brood in all stages there is always  more or less dessertion of bees and  consequent death of the young brood  and sometimes chilling and death of  the older brood even when the nuclei  are 'skillfully made up by an experienced apiarist. Further, queens  may not be immediately obtainable,  or they may be lost in introduction.  Robbing of the newly formed nuclei  has also to be guarded against, but,  during the height of the honey-flow  only carelessness will cause this; towards its end, however, the danger  of robbing grows so great that it is  difficult to maintain newly-formed  nuclei even when stong. Dessertion  may be checked by stopping the opening with grass; the bees will make  their way out when the grass dries  and slirinks in about two days, but  care must be taken to avoid overcrowding the confined bees, which  which would lead to stifling, especially in hot weather. A good way to  overcome the loss of young brood is  to place the brood over a queen excluder a week before its removal  from the parent hive. This may be  done in the ordinary course of relieving congestion in the brood chamber as a means to discourage swarming, a frame or two of empty comb  or of foundation being placed in the  brood chamber when tho brood is  raised.  All of these risks may be greatly  minimized as follows: Have all the  queens' wings clipped this is not essential), and when a colony of a  strain that it is desired lo propoxate  swarms, move the parent hive to a  new stand, and place the swarm in an  empty hive on the old stand, the  queen having been picked off tho  ground and placed in the empty, hive.  Tho swarms will return to th* new  hive at the old stand. The field bees  will now join the swarm, and the super should be transferred from the  parent hive to the swarm which will  produce the crop of honey. The colony, now depleted of bees but rich  in brood, is divided a week later info  three to six nuclei, each nucleus consisting of two or three frames containing brood and honey carrying two  or three queen-cells containing  queens soon to emerge with the adhering bees.  This method has the great advantage that it not only controls and satisfies the troublesome swarming instinct but it helps to secure the de-  V. K. wSands Asserts Auto is "No Longer Termed   Luxury.  "The automobile increases every  individual's capacity to produce,''  says a writer. "Years ago if ceased  to be classed as a luxury and now, in  every section of the country, men in  every walk of life look' upon their  ears as a necessity nol. to be dispensed with.  "People generally have come to  accept the fact, that-the motor car  is an economic instrument and one  of the greatest aids to modern business efficiency. But ot even greater importance is the fact that the  motor car contributes unfold pleasures to life when used in a purely  business way.  "To the business and professional  man an automobile means not only  added convenience but. also recreation and relaxation. ' The morning  spin from home takes the business  man info his office feeling fresh and  vigorous for the days . work. Professional men find their cars , well  nigh iudespcnsiblo now. Because ol  the automobile their patients receive better care���������belter because  the physician is at their bedside he-  fore conditions become too serious,  and the stiff breeze of a swift ride  over the roads is of inestimable value  to the doctors mental and physical  well-being.  "Salesmen in various lines of business often find their efficiency  gVeatly enhanced by the use of a motor car. More calls per day can he  made and a larger territory covered  ���������result more sales and increased  business. Besides, , the salesman  with a car finds his health greatly  improved from  this on; door travel.  "To the family an automobile  means health, vigor and strength ���������  it means, in fact, increased happiness  The joys of touring���������-of the short  week-end trip, or even the evening  ride about town���������are too well known  to need further description by me.  "Used rightly the automobile is a  fine thing on the farm. It cannot be  used for the same purpose as a  Clydesdale horse or a milch cow or  a fat pig and it will not bring iu the  revenue in just the same way, but if  has, however, a place to fill, and if  used with the same judgement that,  one would exercise with the other  f-irm equipment in order to secure  a reasonable income it will full the  ���������Lice just, as well as any one of the  others. Nowadays the farmer cannot afford to use the ordinary means  of transportation in getting-' lo and  from town, but must make every  minute count in order to reaii'-'o the  fullest, benefit of his investment.  "A motor car, then is a time sa\er.  a health giver, a business builder.  By saving time, by adding health, a  motor ear increases individual energy  and business efficiency.

Julius Caesar Nayphe, the  Greek, certainly held down the  audience on Tuesday evening  while he described his introduction to the English language in United States and  Canada, and his description of  Greek and Eastern customs and  manners. During the nine years  he has been in America he has  certainly made. good use of  his time and delivers one of the  most interesting lectures of the  Chautauqua.  The Rev. W. J. I.Iindley electrified his audience with his  'most ��������� magnificent address on,  "The Reign of the Common  People. He is a speaker of  note throughout Canada and  Missionites were fortunate in  having the opportunity of hearing him.  Miss McCormcik, the .singer,  rendered some numbers which  have entertained much larger  audiences than Mission City,  and her singing was highly appreciated, and very charming.  The Treble Clef Club took,  the audience by storm and all  were delighted with the entertainment, and sorry that their  sta> was so short. They would  certainly be welcomed again  to Mission City.  "The Quest of the Ages" by  Mr. Ho vis, "The Worlds Greatest Need" (Education) by J.  Sherman Wallace and "Worlds  in the Making by Dr. Carpenter  were" especially interesting to  ail and should have helped to  broaden the view of the audiences. Any one of these  would'.fill columns of interesting reading for this paper's subscribers. ,  The 1-iawaiin Quintet proved  favorites before the end of their  seemingly short programmes.  "Kweer Characters I've  Known" by Mrs. Fisk, were  true to life and a good artist  could get material of a like nature for illustrations and lecture  in almost any part of the world.  Her characters were good, and  some of them were sure  "Kweer."  Some good acting was dis  played in "The Comus Players'  by both Olson and Miss Young.  Piatt Jones was in a class by  The roads of the surrounding  district are in pretty good shape  at present, but one would judge  that much more repair work  should be made'so as to insure  their being passable during the  coming winter. During the  summer the roads are bound to  becme passable when dry.  The road between Mission  City and the Red Bridge on the  Dewdney Trunk road has been  greatly improved with the fine  weather and the continuous  traffic, but one almost wonders  why such course gravel ha3  been put in the roads in small  been put on the roads hi'small  top of the Silverdale hill the  coarsest of gravel has been put  on the read. Of course it pre-'  vents one from starting down  the hill too fast, but apparently  serves no other purpose, except  to make it harder to finish the  climb with an auto; No one  will exceed the speed limit on  this road for a very long' distance without having many a  bump, as there are more stones  on this road to tiie mile than on  any other road in B. G. is a safe  bet. The government appears  to be under a delusion that they  are not exactly responsible for  the up-keep of this road as it  passes through Mission Municipality. They should be a-  ware that the Municipality provided the right of way with the  understanding that the government would keep the road in repair. A good road here would  prove an advertisement to the  district there is so much travel  on it.  The Cedar Valley road back  to the Dewdney Trunk leading  to Ferndale arid'out to Hatzic  is in fair shape and makes one  of the best drives in the district  . The road to Steelhead is improving with the traffic and  where autos pass over it each  day. Were this, road completed right through as was the iintention of the late government  it would make a short cut to  Haney and the coast but it  would take considerable money  to make it a "boulevard."  The Riverside road to Abbotsford is now in fair    condition  and much work has been done  on it.    The grader    has    been  busy rounding up the road and  many stones have been   taken  oi7.   Crushed   rock   has   been  put down from the ferry   landing to near tiie C. N. R.   track  making this part of   the   road  much more   passable   for   the  first time.    But the "Whiskey''  road between Abbotsford    and!  Huntingdon beats them all and  is now one of the best roads in  the country. Excellent chances  for breaking the speed limit.  The road    to    Deroche    up  through   Nicomen   Island     1st  much better that it was a month  ago, but centre   road    through  the island will be in poor condition next winter, unless more  work is done on it.    It   is   yet  full of ruts and the attention of  the engineer should be called to  this fact, as the,  drive   around  Nicomen Island is one   of   the  prettiest in the province,    and  should be better advertised to  tourists. . Along   the   river   it-  was found necessary to throw  up some clay oh the   road , to  keep back the water, and it is  hoped that this will be removed  when all danger of high water  for the year is over, or the other half of "the road   made   the  same height.  The remains will be, taken  back to Prince Edward Island,  the, native land of the deceased,  and will be accompanied by the-  family who intend to reside  there.

About two months ago  Mr. Beaton underwent an op-  oration in the hospital in Vancouver and after being there-  several weeks he returned j  home/but kept slowly getting!  weaker    until    on    Wednesday!  i  morning he   paused    into    the:  great beyond.  The deceased had been attending to the Mission bridge  for a number of years and was  well known to a very large i  circle of friends and acquaintances on both sides of the  river. He made many friends  by his little acts of kindness  and words of cheer to those who  came his way and his death  will remove one of the men  whom all respected because of  the sincerity which governed  his life.  He leaves to mourn his ioss a  widow and eight children the  eldest of whom is about 18 years  of age, all of whom have the  sympathy of the community in  this their time of sorrow.  m  w  n  ������  X  is  w  K  31  J.
