C. J  MISSION FERRY  WILL RUN  The ferry will make regular trips  between Mission and Matsqui and  Matsqui audi Mission during the  Chautauqua week. The committee  '-reports that after having interviewed the Captain he has consented to  make runs 7.45 p. m. from Matsqui  and from Mission City across to  MaiTvqui after the show, besides the  regular day runs. This will -guarantee that those from across the river  will have the best opportunity to attend the, evening meetings. This  ought to be very satisfactory arrangements for those at Matsqui,  Clayburn, Abbotsford and other  points across the river.  TREBLE CLEF CLUB  Chautauqua folks would have to  go a long way to find a happier company of entertainers than the Treble  Clef Club Avho give two concerts on  the opening day of your Chautauqua  The Treble Clef Club is composed  of four charming and cultured young  ladies who give high class programs  vocal quartets, vocal solos and duets,  piano solos, costume readings, scenes  from opera in costume and also humor us costumed sketches specially  written for this company.  Never swerving from a quiet natural dignity, the Treble Clef Club  gives a most spirited . performance  It would be difficult to find a'company more ideally suited to give  Chautauqua a rousing start the first  day.  should break all previous records in  attendance   and   enthusiasm.    Plans  for the boys and giirls have been laid  out on a larger scale than ever before. It is the aim of the management to make the Junior Chautauqua just as big as the regular programs are for the grown-ups. In  disclosing the nature of the Junior  Chautauqua it will be readily seen  that no effort has been spared to  make it a great event for the boys  and girls.  The Junior Chautauquans will certainly have a week filled to the brim  and sparkling over the edges with  the happiest experience of their  whole lives. They are actually going  to take an imaginary trip around the  world. They will visit the different  foreign countries, and the fun they  will have cannot be easily described.  Think of them dressed in the quaint  costumes of the boys and girls of  strange lands. Imagine them playing the games, dancing the folk  dances and singing the songs of children they have wondered so much a-  ���������bout, and you have some idea of  what is in store for the Juniors.  Experienced play-ground experts  are coming to take charge of the Juniors Chautauqua. They are young  ladies specially trained in this important branch of Chautauqua work  and are past masters in thec'art of  making boys and girls happy.  Remember that the season ticket  for the Junior Chautauqua in only  $1.00. Don't forget that this $1.00  ticket also admits Junior Chautauquans to all other programs of the  big Chautauqua.

At the present time Canada needs  every egg that it is possible for the  iiens to lay and it is important that  these eggs should be of the best and  that they should-be infertile so that  these eggs will 'keep during hot  weather.  The breeding season for poultry is  over and it is important that all  poultry keepers dispose of or isolate tlie breeding males. Some  people think that the hens will not  lay so well if there is no male bird  present but this is not the case as in  most cases the presence of male  fowl tend to decrease, not increase, [  the egg yield.  It was estimated that last  or $3,000,000 were lost    in  Another reason why the male  birds should, be disposed of at the end  of the breeding season' is the expense  of keeping-them; If marketed at  the present time they will bring in  a few cents more per pound than they  will in the fall and in addition the  fifty or sixty cents worth of feed necessary to keep them.in good condition will be saved.  During the hot weather the eggs  should be collected at least twice a  day and should be stored in a sweet  cool place. Clean good-sized eggs  should be marketed as often as possible and the containers should be in  first-class condition., Small, dirty eggs  should be used by the poultry breeder themselves and should not be placed on the market.  KOI) AND GUN FOR .TUNE  Marion Ballou Fisk, the brilliant  cartoonist and lecturer-entertainer  who is coming to our Chautauqua,  drifted into her present profession  quite by accident. In the slums of  Chicago Mrs. Fisk was the Late  Dwight L. Moody's ablest lieutenant  iu settlement work. It , was here  that her natural gift in art was i'irr.t  called upon for demonstration. It  was a case of inspiration born of desperation. She had a room fuil of  Chicago West bide children and was  trying to teach them. She made little head way. She could not even  ksep order. A third of them could  not even understand tho English  language she spoke, for they woic  the children of foreigners.

She was a haupy women that day for  she discovered she , could    hold  wriggling mass ' perfectly    quiet  long as she drew pictures while  the  so  she  and then the great characters she has  met. in her extensive travels.  I It is erally doubtful whether any  'lecturer on the Chautauqua platform  has a greater fund of wit and point  illumination stories than Mrs. Fisk.'  She has'a philosophy all her own and  the pictures are really more an accompaniment to the lecture than the  lecture being an accompaniment to  the pictures. Back of all her work  is. the charm of a personality -.that  wins everywhere.

Usually the  varieties of fruit which are the most  advanced are thinned first. Generally apples pears and peaches are  thinned when they are about the size  of a hickory-nut and the thinning  continued until they are about twice  that size.  Thinning is necessary    because    a  tree often sets more fruit than it can  possibly bring to perfection, as    the  the fruitgrower and    consumer    understand perfection.    It is necessary  that each tree carries all the fruit it  can possibly bring to perfection but  no more.     The removal of some fruit  at'an early stage of its growth helps  materially towards securing the maximum duty of the trees in many ways.  It. is impossible to go into the method of thinning tree fruits fully here  and the reasons why    it   should    be  clone are also to numerous   to    mention.    A limited supply of Horticultural Circular,    No.    22    "Thinning  Tiee-Fruits" is on hand at the    Department of Agriculture, Victoria, a  copy of this or the many other pub-  Ications in stock as long as the supply lasts.  olive Mccormick  There has been considerable space  devoted to reviews on the voice of  Olive McCormick, prima donna so-  pranno, whose singing has proved one  of the musical sensations of the past  few seasons. For ' Miss McCormick  successfully achieves something  which requires special comment. She  sings with perfect ease to the heavy  accompaniment of the Chautauqua  Symphony Orchestra, without losing  one whit of her voice individuality  ���������her tones, enunciation and carrying power remaining as distinct as  though singling to the accompaniment  of three instruments instead of an  entire orchestra.

Owing to    the    risk    of    bringing  strawberries from the far south, jobbers were depending on getting from  Oregon points.    These    were    short.  The very few that arrived sold for a  high price.     Rhubarb was short and  sold at $1.25 without    any    breaks.  The  first  Gooseberries  arriving  last  week sold readily at $3.00 a case and  retailed at 15 cents   a    box.       Good  judgement was shown by the growers  in not sending these in until they had  reached a good    size    and   were    in  prime    condition    for    use,       Other  years they came in two soon and lay  around the stores unsold,    or    what  "did sell stopped the gooseberry eaters from buying) again for some time,  this resulted in the    jobbers    selling  them at any prico to clean them out.  This year there was no stoppage    of  the sale from this cause.    They wore  excellent.    Tho prico  of  $3.00  cannot be held very long as the Inland  will be-In and thoy will make receipts  to heavy.    They will have to he delivered to the trade at $2.(?0 so that  they can be retailed at 2 for 25 cents  and by the case at $2.75.    But tliere  will be no need and should    not    be  sold lower at any time    during    the  season.    This  will net    tho    grower  $1.80.    The first strawberries    sold  at $6.00 and while no such prices can  be maintained, everything points to a  splendid demand and good prico for  small fruits.  VERNON FRUIT CO. LTED.
