Brown, of the Great.  Northern, who will shortly leave  Abbotsford for Port Georg'e, was  made the recipient of a handaome  dressing case by the members of  the choir of the Pre&tojy.t'aria'n  church. While here he has acceptably filled the position of leader  of the choir, and in losing him tlie.  choir felt in duty bound io show  him isome appreciation of hjs1 services that he could take away wlr.h  him to remember Abbotsford by.  The presentacion took place at tl\&  marise  on Thursday evening  last:  When Premier McBride and At-  torneyrGeneral. .Bowser   spoke*  at-  Penticton the pupils were Fiven   a-  ho'Iiday'", Wouldn't it be-fun- if - an  c./ec>ib'n, was oh in Chiilllwack?

The carrying out of the -evening's  programme -showed that theJ pupils' had-been trained with utmost  care and precision, an*d that they  were gaining rapidly, for. so youthful musicians, a good idea of the  harmony of music. 'The different  numb'ers'Oin the programme brought  -credit]both on. the teacher and pupils, and that the town' was. fortunate in having so successful musical instructors...;-;,  .   While a.i.1 part's of  the  program  were   carried  outvwith' such   perfection' and ;tb the  satisfaction  of  an'appreciative  audience, perhaps  no. part   of   it   attracted   so   much  attention   as  the   action   songs   of  the .little' tcts.- It    showed-   that  the-hearts'.of the: pupils   were" in  tfefelir-^woirk.- Without  riien/t|bn(ng/  ithe"''rianje,&.'ahd\-the'qt'e^  be-isaid that'all who"took;part are  to- be-congra tula ted, 'and the teachers deserve'to succeed,'as it is not.  every-town the size of-Abbotsford  that  can produce such 'an   entertainment.

Mr. Archibald, the rustling  president .of the association, was  in town on Thursday and he reports that he is everywhere this  year meeting with much more, encouragement than last year.  It will undoubtedly be much easier for the Association to finance  its exhibition this year, ,as it has  secured some assistance from Sum-  as, when at its last council meeting  it voted the sum( of $100 towards  defraying the expenses. It is expected that the Matsqui council  will donate a! like amount. Some  assistance is also assured from the  provincial  government   this  year.

Damp, nasty weather attended  the weekly market Friday morning,  but despite these averse conditions  there waa a good attendance -of  farmers arid buyers. Prices ruled  steady throughout and the market  was very fair'although there was  not a very plentiful Buppfy of  meats.  Vegetables came forward freely.  Beets, parsnips, turnips and other  varities were there  in  abundance  and but little difficulty was experienced in disposing of them.   Potatoes stiffened in price somewhat  and  practically 'none , tfoiUd    .be  bought' for less than $30  per ton.  The supply was good and   a   large  puiaaiftity   was  .sold.   The   demand  for seed potatoes was also excellent but very  few  of   this quality  were  available.   Those   who  have  seed potatoes are holding them for  their own requirements or telse they  can sell 'all they wish tor their immediate- neighbors without bringing them to  market.  What meat there waa, was: snapper up as soon las it appeared.  There were two or three carcasses  of beef and some nice, pork. Veal  was not plentiful arid mutton; was  not to be ,������een. In view of this  small supply prices held at the old  levels in a brisk (market.- The usual activity prevailed among the  fowls but no changes in price were  noticed. The birds were of good  average quality}.   Eggs were   a lit-  MAINTENANCE GANGS TO' KEEP  ROADS IN REPAIR  With a view fo giving .the roads  of the province more attention than  has' been the case in past years,  the department of public works  has provided.for tlie establishment  of maintenance gangs,. which will  be stationed .along the route of the  Canadian Highway, and also on* the  other travelled roads of the prov-  ince<  .(The- 'eisftablishment of maintenance Igarigs is one of indirect results of,the/ convention of roa"3 superintendents1 held in Victoria last  month,'.when thirty-three superintendents1 were iii session- for, three  ���������lays.-.' The, ^announcement v that-  ieveral ; of these maini;:enar������:i:e  gangs; would bo placed on the  .���������oad������! of��������� this year, was not made  public, but wa's obtained from' the  Deputy-Minister of Public Works,  W. W. Foster, by P. W. Luce, Secretary of the Canadian Highway  Association.1  This move on the part of the Department can " be traced in a  measure, to the efforts of the Canadian Highway Association for the  betterment of road standards in  3ritish Columbia, as it was one 6\  the requests brought to the notice  of the* Ministers at an audienco  with the officers of the Canadian'  Highway Association, early, in January.     '  ���������In speaking of the 'necessity .of  keeping the roads of this province  in. :good shape, not only.for motor,  travelling, biit also for the bene-  ,*'t of1 'other1 classes of vehicles  W. J. Kerr, President of the Canadian Highway Association, aaid:  ' "It icannot be regarded as good  economy to ..build roads without  making- suitable provision to maintain'and to keep, them/' in a proper latate. of repair. Municipalities  undertaking the construction' of  good roads shouYd' carefully face  this responsibility.' It. is mot" one  of an.alarming, character, in point  of cost, any more thaiv. is the cost  of construction; for-'it has been  found 'that . a) system :of mail?  roads can be built and maintained  in 'any coiriiriunity without burden-  so'me' taxation;   A system of con-  ooooooooooooooooocoooooooo  o ..    ,  3 WHO'S WHO  3-     ,-       IN CANADA  oooooooooooooooooooooooooo  '   W..-T, ilOBSOX  If every settler' brought into  Canada is worth a thousand ��������� dollars  to' tho Dominion; and the average  value of a tourist is five dollars per  day to the district ��������� visited, then the  ���������Canadian Pacific Railway Company  is the greatest asset this country'possesses, because it attracts many  thousands of tourists and immigrants  annually.

The first of t'hese maintenance  gangs is now at work on the old  Mill, Bay Road, now known; as the  Shawnigan Drive, part of the Is-,  land highway which runs from Victoria tc Nanaimo. That this road  is one of the finest in this province  is attributed to the excellence of  the work of this gang and to the  thoroughness of this system.  expenditure of over half a , million  dollars.- Mr. Robson is a man who is  singularly fitted for his position.

"Don't you see," he said, "how  beautifully that describes the shade  of her hair. Every poet speaks of  golden hair or raven locks. To be  a success one must be original. Well,  she did not have golden hadr. It was  nearly golden, arid I convey the Impression by means of that one word."  The other  still', looked  puzzled.  "You have heard," said the poet  patiently, "that silence la golden?"  "Yes," the other admitted.  "Well," resumed the poet, "if silence  Is golden, what would a whisper be?
