On motion of Councilors Aish and  Phinney three contracts on the Pem-  bcrton road were awarded to W. V.  Stewart for $175, also, on motion ot*  Couns. Owen and Melander, the contract for the Ross road south was let  to J. N. Rucker fo $14 9.  Councillor Phinney 'was allowed  $100 on the McCallum road from D,  Combs' west corner to the boundry  of Ward II. I-I. R. Phillips was allowed 120 pounds of barbed wire at  current prices and the sum of $125  was authorized for work on Phillip's  Hill.  The former appropriation of $300  for the road from the old Clayburn  Town was cancelled, and Councillor  Phinney was empowered to call for  tenders for this work. The sum of  $50 was allowed, for the Harris road.  It was voted to pay Mr. Kennedy  $100 on the Ware road contract, and  Coun. Melander was authorized to expend $125 on the Glenmore road/and  also a further appropriation of $90 on  the Huntingdon road. It was decided  to pay John Overstall $75 and W.  Overstall $20 as payment in full for  improvements "taken on the Anderson road.  Councillor  Melander    called    the  council's attention to the dangerous  conditions of wells in various parts of  the municipality, these having been  left in times past  by railroad    contractors and mill men in an  unprotected  condition and now    were    a  menace   to   life   and   property.    Especially was a well close to the G. N.  R. tracks on the Lefeurve road dangerous.    Coun.  Melander    was    authorized to have the latter well filled  in, while it was stated that the dangerous wells on private property  would have to be taken care of by  the owners. It was pointed out that  where there were wells not fenced In  or otherwise protected, the owners  were liable for any damages which  might occur to settlers or roaming  stock.  Councillor Aish called the attention of the council to the dangerous  condition of the government wharf at  Matsqui village, and the clerk was instructed to write to the Dominion rcsi  dent engineer with a request that the  necessary repairs be made.  The question of appointing a municipal auditor was taken up and the  offer of Kendall Barr & Co. of Vancouver, for $100, including a half  yearly audit, tax sale work and the  preparation of the annual statement,  was considered, but left over until  it was ascertained whether the school  audit was included in that figure.  Chairman of Finance Owen gave  notice of motion for another loan  bylaw to meet current expenses, to be  introduced at the next meeting.  A communication was received  from the Smith Hutchison Lumber  Co., of Vancouver, stating that the  firm contemplated the continuing of  the saw mill that has been operated  for several years by the Craig & Taylor Co., at Bradner. They have surveyed a right-of-way through the S.  W. 1-4 of Cec. 3, Tp. 13 and Sees. 34,  27 and 22 inclusive, in Tp. 13. This  they said would necessitate the crossing of the Township Line road, the  White road and possibly the Ross  road with their logging track. Permission was granted under the usual  restrictions and provided ,a bond  against damages, of $15 for each  crossing, is provided.  An invitation was received for the  Langley Prairie commitee for the  council to attend their big Dominion  Day celebration on July 2. This was  filed and as many of the councillors  that can will attend.  A request was made that the Matsqui council co-operate with the Mission City Board of Trade in an effort to have the running time of the  extended     The council passed a res-  (Coritinued~on Last Page")     ~"  Mrs. Cobicy, Mrs. Hart, Mrs. McCallum and Mrs. Tapp of Huntingdon a( tended the ladies aid last  week, at Mrs. McGowans.

It was her ex-  ! periencexhere amid the poverty, tears  squallor, drunken scenes and despairing faces that she developed her  art to its wonderful and characteristic perfection.  Mrs. Fisk is really a protege of the  late Dwight L. Moody, the great  preacher and evangelist. It was he  who first interested Mrs. Fisk in her  missionary work in Chicago. For a  year she was a Sunday school visitor in his church and it was said she  was the only girl who could go into  Gait Court or Milton Avenue without being molested. For three years  she worked In that part of Chicago  made famous by Uuton Sinclair as  "The Jungle."  As a child, following) her natural  bend for art, Bhe had illustrated  nearly all of the Old Testament but  she found here in Chicago for the  first time a practical use for her  talent and training. On Sunday afternoons she gathered over a hundred of these waifs into a ' Sunday-  School Class composed of eleven different nationalities. Almost half of  them could not understand a word of  English.

In the past few years    Mrs.    Fisk  has become one of tho most conspicuous figures in Lyceum and  Chautauqua work.

I o be supplied to. Farmers' Institutes on a deferred payment'system. This action on the part of the  Minister of Agriculture is the outcome of a. number of requests which  have been received by the department  from' Farmers'  Institutes. -    ���������"  In giving the Farmers' - Institute  this opportunity to purchase these  machines the Department assumes  absolutely ho responsibility and  makes no recommendations regarding Lhe comparative efficiency of the  various Lypes of machine on the market. The Deputy Minister and Sup-  crintendant of Institutes, Mr. Wm.  E. ScoLt has witnessed several demonstrations and at each one the results have been satisfactory.        Ci  The Department of Agriculture will  supply application forms to any Farmers'" Institutes oh request. These  forms must be signed by the President, Vice-President and directors  and also by five members of the Institute. Freight charges on the machines must be paid by the Institute  from the factory.  Terms of payment for the machines are: One-third on delivery;  one-third in one year and the remainder in two years.  No interest will be charged on un  paid balances but interests at 10%  will be charged on overdue payments.  Institutes that fail to make their  payments promptly will not receive  their per capita grant on> account of  rmembership but this sum will bo de-:  voted towards tho payments overdue.  The department recommends that all  Institutes securing these machines  adopt a plan whereby a fixed charge  of so much per diem be paid by members who use tho machine. By this  means a fund will be provided towards paying the cost of the machine  and- the depreciation in value  THM SCOTCH (XLNOMKT IWIITY  Miss'. Ruth Hill is. the pianist and  the accompanist of the Trio and has  a beautifu-11 lyric soprano voice. Miss  Hazel Dean Bryam, violinist, . completes the company. The aim of  these artists is to offer, the fullest enjoyment of good music, rather than  the passing amusement of a^musical  show, yet to present a program that  sparkles'with life and color.  Popular in appeal, versatile, happily combining- the best entertainment, it would be difficult to secure  a better voice and instrumental ensemble than the Scotch Trio,, which  brings to Chautauqa.a program-that  has mot with high favor everywhere.  Discriminating music lovers will be  drawn eveywhere'from a considerable  radius to hear them, for they more  than make good the glowing accounts  which preceeds and succeeds their  every appearance. A typical Scotch  program is invariably a genoral co-  mingling of selections spocially designed to suit every taste from the  popular and classic operas to the old  home favorites that every girl hums  and every boy  whistles.  of crusted  crunching snow, is what  one gets from a Labadie lecture-recital of the works of Wm. A. Drum-  , mond and Robert W. Service.  For many years., in both Canada  and the United States, Labadie's genius in character delineation has enjoyed a popular prestige second to  none. Especially does Labadie meet  the Chautauqua demand for artists  able to interpret the best' in liter-  Dance and Ice-cream Social will  be held in the Silverdale Hall on  Saturday July 7th, in aid of, the Mission Red Cross.

The Scotch Trio coming ' to our  Chautauqua occupies a conspicuus  place in the splendid list of musical;  attractions for the week. It is a  musical entertainment company  which ' may, with confidence, bo  singled out from the mass of such offerings as an attraction of exceptional strength.  The Trio is composed of three distinguished artists.- Mr. Lachlan Mac-  Neil 1 heads the company. Both as  a splendid baritone singer and as  reader and impersonator, Mr. Mac-  Neill has long been an established  favorite with Chautauqua and Lyceum audiences. Perhaps the strongest feature of the numbers given by  this gifted entertainer will be selections from Harry Lauder's original  repertoire. He will give these in the  Scotch kilties of the Highland.  J. H. McCulloch, District Agricl-  turist with headquarters at Kara-  loops has resigned from the service  of the Provincial Government to take  a position in Winnipeg. Mr. McCulloch made his headquarters at Ques-  nell for several months but recently  his district, was enlarged and his  headquarters transferred Lo Kam-  loops.  Mr. Geo. G. Hay who has been sta-  Lioned at Telkwa for the past year  and a half as District Agriculturist  has been transferred to Kamloops  and will fill the position vacated by  Mr. McCulloch.

Belgian Relief  In view of the recent statement issued by Mr. Hoover,'��������� Chairman of the  Commission for Relief1  in    Belgium  which points out the impossibility at  present of obtaining    the    necessary  shipping tonnage to forward to Belgium the food supplies in the    same  quantity   as   in   the   past,   and   also  draws attention to the fact that the  United States Government have made  arrangements to loan    the    Belgium  Government the sum of ?45,000,000,  payable to the Commission for    Relief in Belgium in   six   monthly    instalments, which will cover the cost  of such food supplies as can be shipped in that time by the limited number of available ships to the Commission��������� the Central Committee of the  Belgian Relief Fund of Canada finds  it unnecessary for    the    present    to  make appeal to the generously    disposed people of Canada on the plea  of the urgency of support in order to  stave off starvation.  The needs of Belgium continue  however as pressing as in the past  and the situation may be considered  as being; even more pitiable as,  through the forced decrease in imports, Belgium will be compelled to  fall back on her own native resourses  already so denuded. In order to [  maintain that so limited ration that'  has been doled out in the past it will  be necessary to encroach upon the  country's stock of Milk cattle which  has been reserved to maintain a supply of fresh milk for the children.  In the hope, however, that the recent swiftly developed  shortage    in  the world's shipping���������the    cause    of  this new departure    of    the    Relief  Work���������-may not permanently endure  in the hope that the necessary funds  may be available should any emergency or special occasion arise and in  view of the fact that in any event relief in many forms will be required  after the war, the   Committee   hope  that all  generous, supporters of  the  Fund in the past and all those who  have pledged  themselves  for future  payments will continue   to    support  the Fund and thus continue to show  their sympathy win the people    who  gave their all for the cause of Humanity.  All donations received after the  10th' of June will be disposed of to  the best advantage of this stricken  people, according to the wish that  may be expressed by any donor or according to the actual or more press-  needs of any of the already organized channels of Relief Work such  as:  "Help to children removed from  Belgian Front;" "Queen's Fund for  the Wounded Soldiers;" "Home for  the Belgian Soldiers;" Relief for Belgian Prisoners in Germany;" "Anglo  Belgian Committee of the Belgian  Red Cross;" "Relief for Belgian  Children suffering from Tuberculosis and Rickets;" Belgian Orphan  Fund;" "Belgian National Relief  Fund for War Orphans, etc."  ���������  The  Junior  Chautauqua  this year  should  break all  previous records in <  attendance   and   enthusiasm.     Plans  The Junior Chautauquans will cor-^  tainiy have a week' filled to the brim:  and sparkling over the    edges    with |  the    happiest    experience    of    their i  whole lives.;.     They are. actually going  to take an imaginary (rip around the:  world.     They will visit the different'  foreign countries, and the fun    they ���������  will, have cannot be easily described, j  for the boys and girls have been laid '  our. on a larger scale than   ever    before.    It is tlie aim of the management to make the    Junior    Chautauqua just as big as the    regular    programs are for the    grown-ups.    - Ln  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.  Remember that 'the season ticket  for the Junior Chautauqua in only  .$1.0 0. Don't forget that this $1.00  ticket also admits Junior Chautauquans to all other programs of the  big Chautauqua.
