Tlie  dinner Avas given by the president  of the club's, Mr.. Charles Hill-Tout,  who proved   a? very-entertaining  chairman.   He-laid-special emphasis throughout iipon the advantage  o'f .clean amateur sport.  Tn addition to the members of both clubs,  most  of the  leading townspeople  \vere  present "-trid  -the    speeches  Avere  of   a < particularly happy Older.   The principal toasts, proposed   by   the  chairman,  .were   "Our  ToAvn," "Amateur Sport," and"0'ir  Guests."   These- were responded to'  by-.Avell   known -residents   in   the  town arid district, including Messrs  F. Boyd. A." Trethewey, II, Alanson,  S.   Morely.   G. 'McGowan,- -M.   W.  Copeland," H./McKenzie,   C.   Har-  Crop, G. Hayer arid J. Heath. ��������� Particular emphasis was laid upon two  points,-the, bright'future  of   Ab-  botsfor.d ���������which'.already is   a Junction ��������� cf\.fomv'4:,^ftlV<i^s;, Lhe .Great  Northern, the C. Pl:R., B. C. E. It.  and   Canadian' Northern,  running  -through it, and which, it was suggested, would probably be made  a  3^?-j divisional point by the Great Northern���������and the rapid development  of the football club and the inter-i  est taken in th egame.   Despite the  fact  that the Hill-Tout cups  had  been  this year Avrested from Ao-;  botsf.ord by Mission the season as  a   whole   shoAVed   more   victories'  than  defeats and  confidence  was  expressed as t oregaining the cups.  The cricltPt eleven has only played  a   f eAV matches but has won' them  all, defeating Mission in the only  match played this season.  Mr. Hill-Tout Avas re-elected prea  ident and accorded musical honors.  Mr. F. Furguson, to whom tributes  were paid upon his captaincy, was  re-elected   football -captain,   with  Mr. Cyril Harrop as vice-captain;  Mr. J .Heath secretary, and-. Mr. A  M. BroAvn treasurer.   A deficit upon the accounts was wiped out by  the company and a jolly evening's  entertainment was contributed to  by Messrs E. A. Barratt, B .J.Gux-  ney, Redfern Turner, McArthur, G.  McGowna, A. Harrop and J. Heath,  songs, and Mr. Noel Robinson, xe-  citations;  and the singing of the  National  .Anthem   concluded   the  pioceedings.  MUSICAL   EVENT  Good Programme Brilliantly Rendered by Pupils   of   Mr. Turner.  One of the most successful musical events of the season took place  June--' 8th in ��������� the Maple Leaf Hall,  Abbotsford, Avhen some thirty junior pupils of Mr. E. R. Turner came  up fro mVancouver and gave a ue-  lightful  concert to ' a   well  fihed  house.- The .close attention  which  Avas  paid to  the various numbers  proved the appreciative quality of  the audience as Avell as .their rendition  proved    the    high"    musical  quality of the performers.  A .pleasing program ,of just the  right length was given with delightfully varied artistry by the  different pupils, a .tribute to the  teacher. There could be no monotony about" a concert of such  range and every number went  through with flying colors.  Mr.- Turner was ably assisted by  Miss Helen Badgely Miss Myrtle  Traill, pupil of Miss Badgley, and  Miss Armande G. Wilson.  Miss' Badgley   scored   triumphantly.   She   quite   captivated   the  >udience _with -,he.r. huiAberfl^and,  Avas compelled to respond to.numerous recalls.   Whether in humor- |  ous or pathetic vein Miss Badgley  Is    a   complete master of  the  art  of   elocution.   Her  impersonations  of   children are  most  remarkable,  each gestur eahd mannerism being  true in eA'ery detail.  Miss Traill recited the "Mustard  "Plaster," Avhich caused roars of  laughter.   Her work Avas very good  Too much cannot be said of the  brilliant work Jof Miss Armande  Wilson. This talented young artist opened the program with ilLey  bach's Faust," which is a very  difficult numbe rto play. We predict a great musical future for  this young lady, and we hope to  again have the pleasure of hearing  her perform to her many friends  of Abbotsford.  We wish to especially comment  on the artistic singing of Isab.il  McEAvan, her rendition of "Fiddle  and I" was very good and her go. d  /work has left a lasting imperssion  with us. She received numerous  encores, Avhich she most justly deserved.  pi. 00 PER YEAR  CLAYBURN   CONCERT  NotAvithstanding  the bad weather the social given by the Ladies-  Aid of Clayburn \vas Avell attended, and it is hoped proved   a  financial success.   The grounds of Mr.  McMenemy's house were splendid-'  ly decorated and illuminated showing that great time an dforethcught  had been spent in the preparation  for. the[. Jete.   The   rain   however  put an end to a,ny out door amusements   and  the  guests  adjourned  to   the   schoolhouse.   The  Mission  City band arrived, being met at the  ferry by   a   team, and under the  direction of Mr. Bert Griffin played selections all the evening to an  appreciative  ^audience.. The   .Fish  Pond   proved   >a   great  attraction  and  netted about $25.   Tho    band  boys and others .spent most of the  time between the numbers at the-  candy stall on the pretense of. buying  for the young folks .but it  is ���������  probable   that the  young  lady  in  the Japanese kimona was the lodestar that dreAV them to the counter'   Everybody  ha  d a   good"   time  and bought till all the stalls  were  cleaned   out  and  one  and  all  regretted when the time .arrived .forgoing home.    '  The Band reports an excelleiJt  time and express their Avillingneds  to play at Clayburn any time. ���������  HAPPILY WEDDED  A Avedding of great local interesl  took plac eon Wednesday the 26th,  at Christ Church, Vancouver, \vheu  Miss Alice Blakeney, daughter OJ  Mr. and Mrs ".-Rob.t. Blakeney, of  Vancouver, (was married to .\i/lv.  Kenneth   Charles   Storey. The  bride Avas attended by Miss Eileen  Swepstone of Abbotsford, the best-  man being Mr. W. A. Wright. The  ceremony wa sperformed by the  Rev. C .C. Owen, Vicar.  The Abbotsford Order of Woodmen of the ToAvn was organized  this week with our esteemed butrh  er in the west end as the chief  Axeman. This position Avas given  .. him OAVing to the fact that he is  ^^^7 J such a good man with an axe-no  reference is made to  a meat axe.  AGED,  WRINKLED FACES  EASILY REJUVENATED  An   aged  face  is  often   only   a  mask  to   a   comparatively youthful person.   Beneath is  a countenance young and fair to look upon.  It's    a   simple  matter  to  remoA^e  the   mask.     Ordinary    mercolized  wax, to be had at any drugstore,  gradually   absorbs   the   worn   out  surfac   skin; in a Aveek or two the  .iser has the lovliest pinky white  complexion imaginable.   An ounce  of the Avax usually is sufficient to  complete    the   transformation.   It  is put on at night like cold cream  and taken of fin the morning with  warm. Avater.  This remarkable treatment is invariably effective, no matter how  muddy, sallow .-'ox discolored the  complexion. Freckles, moth patches, liver spots, pimples, black heads  and other cutaneous blemishes,  naturally vanish with .discarded  skin.  FORMAL   CHURCH  OPENING  'Sunday July 7th will be   a   red  letter day for the catholics of Abbotsford.  The church 'Avhich has just oceu  completed by Hammond' & Sou,  local contractors, will be blessed  and formally opened for divine ser  vice. The members of the congregation proudly point out to tho  fact, rare in the history of church  building, the church as it stands  Avill be free from debt. ' Mr. Da la  Giroday secure d a free site from  the firm of J. J. Banfield of Vancouver, through Mr. Lindsay .Ruj-  sel. Not a few non-Catholics have  liberally contributed to the building fund, showing thereby, a commendable spirit of broad-mindedness.  His Grace, Archbishop McNeil of  Vancouver will perform the csie-  mony and preach at High Mass,  The well knoAvn children's choir-  and brass band of St. Mary's Scho i  Avill be in attendance.  Rev.. Father Jan, O. M. I., has secured reduced rates from the C.-F  R. to enable the catholics of the  surrounding district to attend.  At the evening service Rev*  Father McCarthy, the gifted und  eloquent Pastor of St. Ann's Church  of Sumas City, will deliver the sermon. A large number of the Catholics of Sumas promised to accompany their pastor.  The local choir, under the able  direction of Mesdames Cannonville  and Gernaey are preparing,special  music for the evening service.  The hours and details of service  will be announced next week.  The Abbotsford Tug of War  team will visit Sumas on the 4th.  They are sure to bring the rope  home again this time." They did  it once and are able to do it again.  This time they go out with an idea  of Avinning. All po.AVor to their  strong arms. V-Xfa*���������i���������} -^   -������  ������iE ABBOTSFORD POST,      ABBOTSFORD. B.

UPW.JHI ������  ���������www  FRIDAY,    JUNE 28    1912  ���������_l J_L������....  AN������ "UP-TO-DATE  BUSINESS HOiUSfi  The average city is judged by  the merchants and business men  Who are responsible not only fur  the business blocks and' offices but  for the educational and other public institutions which reflect credit  upon the public spiritedness of the  citizens. Every community has its  public spirited men and it is an  unfailing sign of the discrimination  of the public,.that these men' are.  invariably successful in their private enterprizes. It is a privilege,  to do business Avith the man or  men who have shown their metal  in the upbuilding of the toAVii and  this privilege is usually taken advantage of not only by the townspeople themselves, bu tby neighboring-farmers, Avho. are quick to  realiz ethat the. good roads and th-*  good'schools movements .are dy  pendent upon merchants who are  alive to their requirements.  There  are few business men  in  the Fraser Valley  who Avould   b*  jfcore liable to be accepted as being,  -among the numbers of the live men  of  the community  than Mr. J. J  Sparrow, the Abbotsford Feed Man  Active in public and private enter  prise,   he   has   devoted   the   same  broad minded policies to his private business Avhich induced him to  instal the public drinking fountain  for  the convenience of the  dumb  friends of the farmer and the pub  lie weigh scale for the farmer nnu-  self.   In   1910   Mr.   Sparrow  -cam*  among  us as   a   business man,  in  the short time intervening he has  built   up    a    business   which   will  compare favorably Avith any similar  business in  the  Avhole Fraser  Valley.   His  stock of feed has already  proved itself   a   necessity;  his  methods of business are such  that there is no danger of driving-  any business away from the town,  on the-contrary he is doing much  to  attract the farmers of Abbotsford  and to  make them feel  that  they  can  do  better  here  than   in  any    other    toAvn   in   the    Valley  The large stock carried by the Abbotsford  Feed iStore  will soon   b������  increased   to  even  larger  proportions and the citizens of the town,  will join Avith the Post in wishing-  ah prosperity to Mr. Sparrow and  his public spirited enterprise.  Cherries   ���������'   Raspberries     Strawberries      Whortleberries     Quinces    Small sour pearl (whole) -  Peaches   :   Bartlett pears    Pineapples    Siberian   crab 'apples      Plums  CANNING FRUIT  -Jars.���������In canning, sugar is not  the "keeping poAver" as in preserves ; it is the entire exclusion  of air from the fruit that preserves it, and Avith this fact in mind it  will be seen that great care must  be exercised to have all the jars  in perf ect condition. Purchase ior  the purpose a glass jar, having, a  glass or metal top, Avith a rubber.  Thoroughly cleanse the jars, and  if the rubbers have been used before and seem hard or Avorn, jjet  neAv ones. Partly fill the jars with  Avater, place the rubber in position  and put on the top securely. Then  turn the jar upside down and let  it remain in this position at least  five minutes. If any water oozes  out the jar is imperfect and should  be set aside for some other work  that does not require the exclusion of air.  Fruit.���������The fruit used should be  firm and as large as can be od-  tained, except in the case of the  straAvberries. With them the  smaller the better, and the wild  variety makes better jam.   All oth  er berries should be large and firm.  Pick them over carefully, removing any that aros,crushed or over-t  ripe. Do not buy either too ripe  or have been too lonig picked.  Blackberries,  no matter  how  line  or of what kind, are never satisfactory or appetizing when canned.  To prevent discoloration all large  fruits should be thrown at once into  cold  ware r after  beiner .peclod  until needed.  When   ready  to   begin   canning,  get the jars and place the rubber,**  in position on the top of eachjai,  with the top, that has been tested  by the side of the jar.   Do not mix  the tops, as one that is true to one  jae may not fit the next, this being particularly the case when the  screAV  top is UBed.   Placo the fruit  in the   jars   as   soon as it is pre-  peared,   shaking   each   jar   to   fhl  the  interstices as  closely as  poa-  sible���������that  is Avhen  quinces, pearB  or any of the firmer fruits, are used.   Berries   must  not   be   packed-  closely.     If  pears are used, turn  some  of the pieces with the core  side  out, as it. adds to the  effect  when finished.   When peaches are  being prepared, five or six of me  pips should be distributed through  each jar, for they improve the i'lav  or.   The pips are removed before  the fruit is sent to the table. Just' } ^pC"~Curran,tg  ..  as the fruit is laid when the jar .io\( -Montreal  filled so it should remain all winter, for there should be no furthei  handling of it.  The . Canning-Place   the   sugar  in   a  saucepan on the stove,   with  just enough boiling water to dissolve it. When thoroughly melted   alloAV it  to  cool   a   little   and  then  divide the syru.-g. among ...the  jars a spoonful at a time. If after  all is  distributed it  does  not  fill the jars (and it seldom does),  add   enough   lukewarm   water   to  each jar,to.fill it and loosely put  the   top on.   If the glass top  jar,  i3 used, put the glass in position,  but do not lock it, for if steam is  not   permitted to   escape  the   jai  may   burst.   Have  in  readiness   a  deep porcelain kettle Avith as wide  'a   bottom as possible; set the'jars  closely   together  in   this,   and   fill  the kettle with warm, but not boil-'  ing water, to Avithin an inch of the  top of the jars; then set the whole  over the fire to boil. If the pro-  serving kettle is not large enough  the boiler should be used.   Do not  alloAV the  water   to  boil too fast.  There   is  no  danger   of   the  jars  cracking if the water is alloAved to  heat gradually and boil gently.  When  the water has boiled  Ior  ten minutes, remove the cov<erfi'o[u  one of the jars, and if the fruit can  be easily pierced with a silver  fork, and each piece seems softened through, it has cooked enough  Ten minutes are usually sufficient  time for berries to boil, but more  time is necessary fox the larger  and more solid fruits. Make sure  that the fruit is thoroughly cooked ; then set the kettle .back where  it will not boil, and secure on the  top of each jar as tightly as possible in order that the jars ma>  be more conveniently lifted out.  Then, wrapping-the hand in a dry  towel, lift a jar out of the water  take off the top and pour in boil-*  ing Avater until the jar is overflowing, then quickly adjust the top  again for a final fastening. Treat  each jar in this manner, and invert them all for a final test as  to air-tightness. If any syrup oozes out after a jar has cooled, Lhe  fruit can be saved only by,turning  it into a saucepan, and, when  boiling, placing in a perfect jar,  as in the old method of canning,  but.this.will never be necessary if  pioper care be exercised in tni  fiiet instance. If the leak is detected -while the jar is still hot, .t  can be again 'filled with boiling  water and sealed after substituting a new rubber or a different;  top. ,        V  more of possible, then set them in  a cool, dry place, as ferr from a  strong light as possible/ Do not  handle them after they are once  set away, ��������� as any shaking of the  jars is likely to b'.e followed by fermentation of the fruit. Fruit canned in this Avay will not go . to'  pieces; on the contrary, being  cooked in the jar, and (not handled  Avhen in a breaking condition', ft  remains as Avhole as when .put in  the jar. l  Canned fruit should always be  opened tAV.o or three hours .before  it is needed, as the flavor is much  finer when the 'oxygen, of Avhich  it has so long been deprived, ;is  thus fully restored. <  The amount (o;f fruit necessary  foe each quart jar is as follows:  Ounces     81      6   10      0    1*.    10    I  o  &  8  to  10  10  eal Weekly Witness  As the jars cool, if the screwtop  variety is used, endeavor to tighten them for the purpose.

When   starting    up,    always  make sure that the lever contioiling the spark  is .at the  extra -?o  retarding  limit, otherwise the engine may backfire and possibly r-e-  sult in serious .injury to the opor ���������  ator.  .2.   Before   cranking  the   engio^,  make sure that���������  (a) The brake is set.  (b) The speed lever is in neulr?,!  position.  (c) The spark is fully retarded  These precautions may save   c-'j  much trouble, and negiect of them  may be dangerouB.  3. An occassional overhaul of Llic  ignition system with a screwdriver, tightening np all the terminals  and wiring connections may sa������ ���������  save much time and trouble 3n  the road. ,'������  4. To avoid carburetor troubles,  take care to free the gasoline of  all dirt before its entrance into  the tank. A piece of chamois skin  or very fine mesh wire gauze win  make an excellent filter. Never  use the same funnel for gasoline u-j  for water.  5. A few quick turns of the crank  Avill be more likely to start the engine than twenty minutes of alow  giinding.  6. If a brake is found to be  slipping on account-of oil working  into it, squirt a little gasoline into the drum. This will cut the oil  and restore efficiency..  2U  AXLE "GREASE,  HARNESS- OIL, .

Johnston, the well-  known financier is urging the manufacturers* and traders of Canada to  consolidate and form an association  through which authentic Information  of the wants of other countries���������particularly South Amorlca���������could bo  flooured for the benefit of Canada.  Mr. Johnston's appeal, In (part, la:���������  Has not tho time arrived whon wo  should put forth some concerted action wheroby we would render valuable aid to our Canadian exporters.  This might be accomplished by following the example of our neighbors  to the south of us by the formation  of a Canadian Export Association.  Our export trade 5s growing at a remarkably rapid rate and the work of  such an association would be to educate our expanding manufacturers  and traders who may be anxious to  participate In profitable over-soas  business. It would be the purpose of  the suggested association to establish an intelligence department and  Jhrough the agency of accredited cpr-  responuenis" who wouki suppiy fining prices, point out new markets  and fresh sources for the purchase  of our raw material.  It may be news to many Canadians  to know that there Is scarcely a  country in - the world where Canadian merchandise does not find a  ready market, both in the countries  of the Old and New World. We have'-  now a direct steamship service to  Australia, New' Zealand and the Far  East and we havo lately turned our  attention to the development of trade  to Latin South America and with  most promising results.  From January let. to September  30th. of last year, the exports and Imports betAveen Canada and Argentine  aggregated ?5,051,4G7, which is $3,-  000,000 more than the previous year.  During the nine months above mentioned, Canada Bent to Argentine  $2,869,913 worth of goods and bought  from that republic $2,181,554.  In looking over all the countries'  trade with each of the Republics of  South America, I personally believe  that our trade of 1910. with the Argentine might be. duplicated in each one  of the other Republics, if we put the  proper trade machinery Into operation. Canada in the last few years,  has been developing her export trade  at a very rapid rate.  I would like to see our government  assist in establishing a direct lino of  steamships with South America. This  would facilitate the work of an energetic and patriotic Canadian Export  Association. In many ways South  America presents a very attractive  field for Canadian business men and  I believe, as one personally acquainted with South America and Its business, that there Is no doubt a largo  trade could bo worked up, If proper'  attention were paid to cultivating the  republics of South America. As  evoryono knows, South Americans for  the most part, are not competitors of  Canada. They buy what wo have to  sell and sell us commodities which  we require. The only exception to  this statement Is the Argon tin o Republic and even with this republic  our export trade last, year was over  $5,000,000. Canada should havo, next  to Great Britain, the first claim upon  South American trade, because of. tho  fact that tho chief commercial houses  of South America are English and  would naturally glvo a preference to  Canada There Is Invested In .South  American enterprises at the present  time, ovor two billions dollars of  British money and as a result of this  largo amount of British capita! Invested, Canada, as a part of the'Bri-  tlsh Empire, would receive a cordial  welcome should she energetically  seek closer trade relations with  South  American  countries.  As a Canadian much interested In  Canadian enterprises, I would like lo  see a system of organized effort to  extend and enlarge our export trade  and for that purpose, I would suggest the formation of a powerful  league, known as tho Canadian Export Association, which league ought  to secure diplomatic Influence for the  Buecc.ssfuJ   explojtftjlpn.   ol  Canadian  commerce. In. order to secure a remunerative business for a direct  steamship line, the government might  grant a subsidy, which subsidy would  not be required after a more extensive -trade had been developed, as it  would soon be apparent that Canadian steamships would soon have a  paying cargo eachoway.  ,. It might be pointed out that the  greater part of manufactured goods  used-in South America are imported  and that there is hardly an article  manufactured In Canada which would  not find a ready and profitable sale  in the south. Implements are used  there in enormous quantities. Cement  Is used in millions of tons. Leather  goods, including saddles, boots and  belting are everywhere In groat' demand owing to the agricultural nature of the country. The bulk of  this trade is now going to Americans,  Germans and the Belgians. Wo in  turn need their asphalt, nuts, mutton, hides, mahogany, rice, rubber,1  wool, etc. Our Canadian government  has neglected putting a live, energetic  Canadian representative in each one  of the Republics of South America  and I think the time has arrived for  either the government or such an  association as I have indicated to  take immediate steps towards the development of our Canadian trade in  the south.   . -  Mr. Johnston invites correspondence  from manufacturers and traders of  the Dominion on the subject and If  there Is sufficient interest manifested,  necessary stepd will be taken to organise an export association and to  develop and extend our export trade.

John McMillan  Manager  The Profitable ."sneep  No one who has studied live stock  will doubt that there Is money to bo  made from herds or flocks of any  class of stock, If they arc properly  handled. Somo, of course, live and  labor under conditions that render  the profit doubtful. The average  farmer, however, who takes an interest In live stock can make satisfactory returns from a flock of sheep  to say nothing of his gain in the  matter of weed destruction.  Sheep are a benefit to the farm in  many ways. Weeds are kept down on  the summer-fallow or around buildings, fences or bluffs. The constant  tramping over the,fields aids in packing loose soils. In the fall, dollars  worth of- grain that otherwise would  be lost is picked up and turned to  good account. It is little wondeir that  sheep men become enthusiastic.

Host  and   Mrs.   DeWitt had prepared a  sumptuous - meal  that  gave  satisfaction to all who partook.   Covers  were laid for 25 and the long,table  was invitingly laid and artistically  decorated    with   sweet   smeljjn.g.  honeysuckle   and .fern,   while   the  epergnes   loaded  with  fruit  gave  an   adde dtouch  of color.   At  the  head   of  the  table   sat  Preceptor  Gamble with Bro. Pakenham on his  left.   Full justice was done to thu  ample  spread, not forgetting  thee  "Big  Red Strawberry" that came  as   a   fitting finish.

The work was resumed after supper and finally adjourned at 2.30  The visiting brethren were accommodated for the night at the ��������� Belle -  vue Hotel' and left- town by the  various trains .on Sunday.  This  is the  first  time  since  lis  erection- that the hall ha3 been used other than by the local. lodge,'  The building cost in the neighborhood   of  $2;5000, measures 50 by ^6  feet, and consists ,of basement and  lodge room over.   The ample base  ment is fitted up with an up-to-  date furnace and contains  a  laige  room where the Mission City Band  holds  its weekly practice.       The  lodge  room above is  approached  through   an  ante  room,  adjoining  which is a room used for keeping  the lodge properties. The room itself measures 38 by 25 feet, with a  raised platform at the sides, giving  a' i'io.or space of 32 by%21.   Ani  elaborate   switch   board  icojntro.ls  the electric lights and tho double  casements prevent any disturbing  noise penetrating.   A feature is the  15 fo.ot high ceiling, skillfully arched, which allows the sound to travel freely to all parts of the room.  J Two   banners 'ranged   along    tho.  wall catch the eye, one stained and  torn,   bearing  tlie  marks  of  ago,  the other new, glittering, untarnished, presented by  a member; to  be used for the first time on ihe  coming 12th of July.   The old banner, now in use for 20 years, has  twice in that time been touched up  by Bro. Fripp, of Hatzic.   The nevV  banner bears  a   motto "The Empire Our Home," an advance on the  old one which reads ''Canada Our  Home."   A striking picture of the  late Queen Victoria, a vivid sketch  of the Battle of the Boyne, and the  Lodge charters adorn    the   wallb.

Speaking on this subject the other  day Archdeacon Renison, of Moose  Port, James'Bay. who has charge of  Anglican mission work in the Moose  district, with its scattered population  of some six thousand, argues that,  instead-of trying to make them mechanics and clerks, Cor which they,  are not suited, they would be better  employed by the Government in surveying, as well as fire ranging and  game wardenship, for which work  they have a natural aptitude.  Mr. Renison suggests that portages  should be cut bctwo^-. fhc lakes of  New Ontario,- and that an Indian  should be settled by every lake. His  work should be the keeping open.of  the portage routes, and the guidance  of strangers.- In this way the Indian  would be able" toc live his own- life,  and at the same time be of immense  use -to Canada.  The  Fixer  Fixed   ���������  "What. I want to know is," said  the proprietor of the Village Arms  to the great lion tamer, who was  in the bar, "how you have the nerve  'o face the animals in  the cage."  "Oh, that's - easy enough. I just  show 'em I'm not afraid of 'em,  and I look at 'em steadily eye to eye."  Here he fixed such a strong gaze on  the landlord that, he quickly disappeared lest he should be tamed, too.  "See that stolid, silly-looking  yokel over there?" asked the wild  ���������beast showman, fixing a keen, piercing eye on a ploughboy at the end  of the room.   '  "Yes," was the hushed rejoinder  of the bystanders: "what are you  going to do to 'im?"  "I'm going to 'fix' 'im with my  eye, and make him come over to me."  So saying,- he glared fiercely at his  "subject." Presently the ploughboy  ���������ceo. and slowly came towards the  'amer.  "Ddn'* I say so?" whispered the  showman.  Sure enough, on came the youth.  When he was cle--" fo the tamer he  suddenly let fly with -his strong arm,  and planted a well-directed blow on  to the showman's nose.  "You'll stare at me like that again,  won't  you?"  he  snarled.  Small but Intelligent  I had been seated but a few minutes  on the front porch of an old colonial  house (says a correspondent) when  my attention was called to a number  of ants clustering around the base  of the column at the head of the  steps. My host, observing the direction of my gaze, then told me the  following story:���������"I had observed,"  he said, "that ants were eating away  ;he wood below the floor, and yesterday I filled the hole up with borax,  thinking to end tho difficulty. An  hour later I saw an ant work Its way  through/ tho borax on to the floor,  and crawl down the stops to the  ground, followed by other ants. In  less time than I can toll you, they  had arranged themselves with tho  utmost precision In a perfectly  straight line, horizontally and vertically, from the hole to the ground,  down the five steps. Then, to my  amazement, the ant. at the edge of the  hole passed a bit of the borax, which  I had pounded, not powdered, to the  .next in line, who In turn passed .It  on until it reached the ant on tho  ground.

The attendance at the weekly  market this morning was rather  below the normal as' far as numbers are concerned, but appearances indicated that those who attend  ed did so for buying purposes, anu  as a result there was a considerable volume of trading accomplished in a very short space of time.  Supplies in most lines were very  average and did not quite meet  the demand. Consequently there  was no diminution of prices, with  the exception of potatoes. In the  latter, the bottom has practically  dropped out of the market, with  the appearance of the firtet of the  new crop, and while it is still possible to sell first class high land  and varieties at $(25.00 per ton.  many of the low Hand potatoes are  a   drug  on t;he market.  While not yet plentiful, the new  potatoes were represented by,two  shipments, one from Clayton, and  >ne from Delta. These were both  of good quality. The price asked  was $3 by the sack aind 6 lbs for  25c.  The list of small fruits was added to by the first of the season's  crop of local cherries, on which the  price asked was 2 lbs for 25 cents.  Strawberries  were fairly plentiful  Enjoy Life During  CBSES  by buying one of our screen doors  and a window or two.

'        ,   .   ���������-  Turning from luxuries (to necessities, the meat market showed a  alight improvement on' last week.  There was some beef which sold  at HJdc and veal was more plentiful. In particular one prime veal  weighing 205 ,1'bs. sold for $28.70.  or 14 cents per pound. Pork remained stationary, the supply being limited.  In the fish section the shad whioh  last week attracted considerable  attention were conspicuous by their  absence, arid it is probable that  there will not be another opportunity to" buy this rare fish, caught  locally, for a year. In other lines  however, supplies were -plentiful,  and the demand was good.  Butter and eggs maintained, the  position which they have held for  some weeks past, supplies of the  latter being Just short of demand  and selling at 35c retail and 28 to  30c wholesale; while the formei  as ever, was present in small quantities, and commanded from 35c to  10c.
