Carried. ',  This concluded the business, of the  Court of Revision, and Clerk Gibson  then read tho minutes of ..the Council  meeting lield'-at M.t.'-Lehman on May  31.. ..-/The. .Clerk, informed, .the r Board  that" before these- minutes could- be  adopted the minutes L of the meeting  held' at Gifforcl on May 10 must be  confirmed.  ���������This resulted in considerable discussion,' Coun. Satchell strenuously  objecting to their adoption on ac-  countf'of a'motion therein authorizing  the Council to purchase a strip of  right of way to connect with the Pa:  cine Highway, which the Provincial  Government is building throughout  the Municipality.- He contended the  Council had no right to purchase it,  as the Government .would- build the  road  anyway.  ' The Reeve explained to the Councillor that the Government had no  power to purchase right of way, and  it was up to the Council to do so, or  in all probability the road work would  be stopped.  The discussion lasted for some  time; finally the following motion was  passed:  Bell-Melander���������That the minutes of  the meeting held May 10 be adopted  as read. All the Councillors0 voting  for, with the exception of Coun.  Satchell.  The minutes of the meeting held  May 31 were then adopted with a correction that Coun.

Bell-Frederickson���������That the Clerk  write to Gus Foreman re fence on  Halbert   Road   between   him   and   E.  Willman.  Messrs.   Small   and   Smith,   of   the  lumbian Hospital, New Wot-Lminstor,  addressed tlie Council on behalf of a  grant, for that institution.  Mr. Small explained that the hospital was a munii'ipal Institution, and  as the former bui/.ding had outgrown  its usefulness th;/ present new building'was found necessary. The building when completed would cost in,the  neishu^-hooc!- of $250,000 or ������300,000.  Of this the Government'gave $100,000,  while the city of New Westminster  had' subscribed $130,000;" but there  still remained a deficit of some $30,-  000. This,, the speaker hoped, wouia  be made up- by tho different Municipalities. He had Interviewed several  throughout the Valley, and in every  case' met with good success. Mr,  Small also felt'sure that the Matsqui  Council would see their way clear to  literally help this worthy project.  Ihe speaker also laid particular stress  on the beneficial advantages of the  training'school .for nurses which is  operated in connection with the hospital. .  Mr. Smith spoke briefly on the question, and stated that were it not for  the heavy taxes in'- New Westminster,  many of the/citizens would have subscribed' more liberally.  ������������������  ' ' Rcevo"'Mcrryfieid', on behalf of-'the'  'Council, 'thanked   the    delegates    for  their    attendance,    and    the    Council  wculd attend to the matter as soon as  possible.

The'  minutes of the previous meeting were  read and confirmed.   The'meeting was  a   short   and   business-like   one.    The  following resolutions were passed:  ��������� "That  this   Fraser Valley   Development League learns" with regret that  no notification    of    the markets and  general produce committee meeting or  j-Tiday, June 13th, was officially sent  to the League or,its accredited representative, and that a disposition was  evidently manifested that no part be  taken by the League in the representations  made  for  the establishment of  central     markets    to   the   provincial  government."  "rihat   the   Fraser  Valley   Develop-,,  ment League learns with  sincere  regret of the sudden death-of Ex-Mayor,  .;ohn A. Lee, of New'Westminster; and'  desires to express its deep sympathy  with Mrs. Lee and her family, and to  the city of New Westminster in  the  loss of one who has been ever prominent in promoting the* welfare of the  city  and  of  the Fraser valley   as- a  whole."

The Premier, in reply to a memorial presented urging that a scionLific  agriculturist   be appointed    to   travel  throughout tho valley and organize tho  farmers into selling communities, advising them as to the most profitable  crops for  any year,  and  uniting  tlie  local producing centres Lo one central  station for better distributing results,  "stated  that.it  had  always   been   the  volicy of the government to endeavor  to assist the farmer as much as possible, without at the same time hindering legitimate trade.    The substantial  "prosperity of the country, the government recognized , lay in the profitableness of agriculture. .As Lo the successful   efforts   made   to    reorganize   the  fruit-growing interests of the Interior,  selling    centres     being     established  throughout the whole of the Okanagan  Valley,  to  which  reference had  been  made in  the  memorial.    Sir. Richard  said  he  could see no  reason   why a  similar move could  not  be  made  in  the Fraser. Valley. ��������� A plan would be  laid before the Agrictural Department  without delay.  ,The  memorial   read   by   Mr.   C.  H.'  Stuart-Wade,   secretary   of   the   New  Westminster Board oft Trade, set forth  how the farmers of the valley could  benefit from a complete and comprehensive organization, and by the adoption  of some plan  that would  bring  the producer and the consumer into a  more    mutually    profitable    relation.  ( With, the establishment of cold storage and re-packing facilities at a convenient   centre   this   could   be   done.  While    the     Okanagan    co-operative  organizations    had    been   established  for the selling and marketing of fruit  the  conditions  in   the  Fraser  Valley  were concerned with mixed  farming,  and by the same organizing arrange-  (juanLilios causing a slight, drop in  the high prices of last week.

Eggs maintained Lhe prices of last  week, 35 cents per dozen retail and  28 to 30 cents wholesale, wore the  standing offers. Butter was on sale  at 40 cents per pound.

The delegates also set forth the  successful operations of the New  Westminster city market during the  past 22 years, and how it had been  of essential benefit* to all classes, but  that now it required extension and its  overations organized on a more scientific basis. '  Those who comprised the delegation were Reeve William Merryfield,  Matsqui; Reeve Poppy, Langley; A.  Dinsmore, Surrey; E. Hutcherson,  Delta; James Owen, of the Farmers'  Institute, Mt.

The representatives of Maple Ridge  and Coquitlam, who expressed themselves fully in accord with the movement were unable to attend.  THE  MARKET  Briskness of trade .was again Lhe  outstanding characteristic of the regular weekly market at New Westminster. Probably the l-argest attendance of the year was gathered and  vendors were lushed off their feet  attending to the wants of purchasers.  Poultry was the centre of attraction and an abundant supply of the  feathered tribe was offered for sale.

A  hen faces the light usually when digging in the straw for ber feed, and the  result is that the Jitter works ba'clr  Thero are numerous drinking devices  ou the market, many of which are valuable. A large number of farmers,  however, use either a small pail or pan.  A low pail makes a very convenient  water disb, as the bail enables it to  be readily, handled with one hand.  A pan as shown in the cut also  makes a convenient watering dish.  Care should be taken not to use watering devices of any kind which have  parts that cannot be readily cleaned.  A dirty drinking dish is frequently a  source of disease and should never be  permitted in any poultry house.

Y.,   have   since   rejected  every  proposition   made  to  them   to  return   to   work.     Further   effort   to  bring about to a settlement has been  abandoned by the board of mediation.  By a vote of 41 to 12, the assembly  of   the   California   legislature   turned  down a resolution to invite the governors of Oregon, Washington, Nevada  and Arizona to come to Sacramento to  confer with  the lawmakers and  Secretary of State William J. Bryan on  the  question of anti-alien land legislation.  At the meeting of the American  Society of International Law, held at  Washington, most *of- the speakers  agreed with Richard Olney, ex-secretary of state, who held that this country was entirely within its rights, as  the owner of the Panama canal, to  make  whatever  rules   regarding  the.  13 acres about 3-4 of a mile from centre of town,  house barn and chicken house, about 100 fruit  trees and all kinds of small fruits.

"My grandmother left each  of her children some unstrung pearls.  They were a hobby with her.    Aunt  Jane and Aunt Letitia never had theirs  strung, but my  mother's were made  into different things, all oid fashioned.  I left them locked in a drawer In mj  Bitting room,   where  1   have  always  kept them.   The following morning the  drawer was unlocked and partly open,  but nothing was missing."  "All your jewelry was.there?"  "All but one ring,' which I rarely n*  move from my  finger."    I  followed  her eyes.    Under her glove was the  outline of a ring, a solitaire stone.  "It does not sound like an ordinary  burglary," I reflected. "Nineteen from  thirty-five leaves sixteen, according to  my mental process, although 1 know  men who could make the difference  nothing."

"This administration is  worse than the last, and It was a  . peach. There have been more suicides  than 1 could count ou my two hands  In the la3t ten years., I warn you���������  you'd be better out of this mess."  "What do you think about the eleven twenty-two?"

"We  don't use Latin In the detective business."  Plattsburg was not the name of the  capital, but It will do for this story.  The, state doesn't  matter'either.    We  will say  that  my  home city Is Manchester.   I live with my married brother,  his  wife and  two boys.    Fred is  older than I am and he is an exceptional1 brother.    On  the day, he came  home from   his  wedding trip 'I   went  down with my traps on a hansom In  accordance with a prearranged schedule.   Fred and Edith met rue Inside the  door.  "Here's your latchkey,' Jack," Fred  said .as he shook hands. "Only one  stipulation-remember we are strangers in the vicinity and try' to get  home before the neighbors are up. We  have our reputations to think of."  "There   is   no   hour  for   breakfast,"  Edith said  as  she  kissed   me.    "You  have, a  bath  of  your own  and  don't  smoke in lhe drawing room."  Fred was always a lucky devil.  I  had been there now for six years.  I had helped to raise two young Knox-  es���������bully   youngsters,   too   (the  oldest  one could use boxing gloves when he  was four)���������and the finest collie pup in  our end of the state.    1 wanted to raise  other things.   The boys liked pets, but  Edith didn't care for animals.  Ou the day that Margery Fleming  came to me about her father 1 went  home in a state of mixed emotion.  Dinner was not a quiet meal. 'Fred  and I talked politics generally, and as  Fred,was on one side and I on the other there always was an argument on,  "What about Fleming?" I asked aft  last when Fred bad ��������� declared ��������� that In  these days of corruption no matter  what the government was.be was "for-  ninsf'it. "Hasn't he been frightened  into reform?''  "Bad egg.1' he said, jabbing his pota-  to as if it had been a politician, "and  there's no way to improve a bad egg-  except to hold your nose.   That's what  the public is doing-holding it's nose."  "Hasn't   he   a   daughter?"   1   asked  casually.  "Yes-a lovely  girl,  too,"   Edith  assented.   "It is his only redeeming aual-  , Hy."  , "Fleming Is a rascal, daughter or no  !_ daughter," Fred persisted. "Ever "-since  ,' he aud his gang got poor Butler into  , trouble and then left him to kill trim-  , self as the only way out I have felt  ��������� that there was .something coinine to all  I of them-Hansen. Schwartz and the  j rest. 1 saw Fleming on the street to  |" day."  I "What!" I exclaimed, almost Jump  , ing out of my chair.  i Fred surveyed me quizzically.  I "'Hasn't he a daughter?"' ne quot-  . ed. "Yes. I saw bim, Jack, this very  i day 'In au unromantic four wheeler,  t und he was swearing at a policeman "  ��������� "Where was It?"  "Cbestuut and Onion. His cab had  been struck by a car and badly damaged, but the geutleman refused to get  out. No doubt you could get the de  tails from the corner man."  "Look here, Fred." I said earnestly.  "Keep that to yourself, will you? And  you too, Edith? It's a queer story,and  I'll tell yon some time."  As we left the dining room Edith put  her band on my shoulder.  "Don't get mixed up with those people. Jack," she advised. "Margery's a  dear girl, but ber father practically  killed Henry Butler, and Henry Butler  married my cousin/'  "You needn't make it a family affair." I protested. "I have only seen  the girl once."  But Edith smiled. "I know what I  know," she said. ��������� "How extravagant  of you to send Bobby that enormous  nobby horse!"  "The boy has to learn to ride acme*  time.    In four years he can have a  pony, and I'm going to see that he has  It.   He'll be eight by that time."  Edith laughed.  .. "Io four years!" she said.   "Why, In  rour years youu oe rorty, jacit: Aim  it's a mighty unattractive man who  gets past forty without being sought  and won by some woman. You'll be  buying"���������  "I will be thirty-nine," I said, with  dignity, "and if I marry-If I do��������� IS  will be some girl who turns and runs  the other way every time she sees me.''  "The oldest trick In the box,". EditH  scoffed. "What's that thing Fred's always quoting: 'A woman Is like a  shadow; follow her, she files; fly from  her,.she follows.'"  . "Upon my word I" I said Indignantly*'  "And you are a woman J"  "I'm different," she retorted. "I'm1  only a wife and mother." \  In the library Fred got up from hla  desk and gathered up his papers.

As  he  slammed  the  door  Into  hla'  workroom  Edith  picked up her skirts  and scuttled after him.  "How dare yon run away like that?'.  she called.   "You. promised me"- The  door closed behlod ber.  , I went over and spoke through the  panels.    '.  " 'Follow her. she files; fly from her,  she follows.' Oh. wife and mother!"  I called. '"  "For heaven's sake,  Edith/" Fred's  voice rose Irritably.   "If you and Jack  are going to talk all evening go and  sit on his knee and let me alone.   The  way you two.flirt under my nose Is a  scandal.   Do you hear that, Jack?"  "Good night. Edith." 1 called. "I  have left you a kiss on the upper left  hand panel of the door. And 1 want  to ask you one more question. What  if I fly from the woman and she  doesn't follow?"  "Thank   your . lucky   stars,"   Fred  called In a muffled voice.  I had some work to do at the office,      and half past 8 that night found me  at my desk.    But  my  mind strayed  from the papers before me.    After a  useless ,-ffnrt to concentrate I gave it  up as usi-iess, and by 10 o'clock I waa   ���������  on the street again, my evening wasted, the papers In the libel case of the  Star against the Eagle untouched and  1 the victim of an uneasy apprehension that took me. almost without; volition,   to   the   neighborhood   of   the  Fleming house, for it had occurred to  me that Miss Fleming might not have  left the house  that day. as she had  promised, might still be there,  liable  to another Intrusion by the mysterious  Individual who had a key to the house.  It was a relief, consequently, when  J  reached Its corner to find no lights  in the building.   The girl had kept her  word.    Assured  of that,   I  looked at  the house curiously.   It was one of the  largest in the city, not wide, but running far back along the side street   A  small yard with a low Iron fence and  a garage completed the property.   The  street lights left the back of the house  in shadow, and as 1 stopped in the  shelter of the garage I  was positive  that I heard some one working with  a rear window of the empty house.   A  moment, later the sounds ceased and  muffled footsteps came down the cement walk.   The Intruder made no at-  tempt  to  open   the   iron   gate,  and  against the light 1 saw him put a leg  over the low fence, follow it up with  the other and start up the street still  wltb peculiar nolselessness of stride.  He was a short, heavy shouldered fellow in a cap, and bis silhouette showed  a orodicious lenetb of arm.

The grievance lasted  several  hours, tho  controversy being  principally   between   Coun.   Melander  and Mr. Campbell.    The latter enumerated the various points at issue.   I-1&  contended that the foreman, Mr. Ber--  ger, lacked experience as a road builder, that he was showing favoritism in  ��������� employing outside residents of the Municipality, some even being American  citizens, and cited the case where Mr.  Helgerson, who was an American citizen, had been engaged to handle powder at an increase of 50 cents a day,  while the speaker had used the powder the day  previous  at the  regular  wage.    Mr. Campbell stated emphatically  that he ��������� had   nothing  whatever  against the work of Mr. Helgerson, as  he was a competent man;  but it was  the principle involved that he objected  to, as  he  thought  ratepayers  should  have the first choice.  Coun. Melander explained the' matter, saying that it was a hard matter  to get a man to handle the powder,  and he had instructed the foreman to  hire the most competent man. In regard to the hiring of aliens, he had  given the foreman strict instructions  "when the work started not to hire any  if avoidable.  After prolonged discussion, it was  decided that as soon as the municipal,  money was spent the work would be  turned over to the Government, who  would appoint the foreman for the  completion of the' work.
