Mr. Mer-  tou Dyce, as Samuel Brewer "did not  know of whom and about whom'' he  spoke, he made a capital retired1 farmer. Mrs. John Smith as Mrs. Brewer  played her part admirably. Miss Lucy  Owen and Miss Minerva Page, as Miss  Sam-antha Brewer and Miss Eunice  Brewer left nothing to he desired in  the way of two aspiring society butterflies. Miss Minnie* Miller as Anna,  the novel-reading "innecent servant  girl," handled her part skilfully, and  Mr. Claude Farr made an ideal Bill,  the Coachman. Mr. A. E. Farr made  a decided hit by proving himself to be  a "deuce of a fellah don't-cher-know"  The part, of Jack Thornton, disguised  as Michael, the butler, was success-  fuly impersonated by Mr. Wyvern  Page, who proved a costly convenience to the  Brewers.   -  After serious complications Anna  and Bill decided to "rendezvous'' for  life, while Samantha and .Jack braved  what "Father.

This is the cmicUis-  . ion arrived ai as the resmt of (he interview of the Maple.Ridge  coi.nc.il ivpre.s'.Milal.ives and the'minister of public works at Victoria recently, when it was stated that only primary'roads were  looked .after and intimated that Ihiw' did not mean the River- Road  ' or the Dewdney Trunk road on the north side-of the river. The  intor.iroviiK'inI road must, pass through .the Fraser Valley and  (he present route of-tho.

Mission City with no road from (he coast on thc north side  ' of tlie Fraser and oeily a one-horse ferry system anross the river  jil Mission-Ma'fsqui will become like the "Desterted .Village''  about which Oliver Goldsmith wrote that lovely poem many  years "ago; and thecbther towns on the north bank of the Fraser  will be far from the maddening crowds of the enthusiastic tourists who visit our province, as they will not want to go.on our  Ijack roads for fear of being fried up. And all this because dear  old John Oliver was fortunate enough to misrepresent Dewdney  instead of a good man, who would have the interests of his  lid-iig at heart. The people on the south side will glory in their  monopoly of a through road in the Fraser Valley. Unlike tht  municipalities on the north side of the river- they will not have  '-.-��������� fifty- fifty .wit h the 'government for their, main road. "It  ��������� U...C:.- good to the residents on -the south side and will be all  right unless the present government is se nt back to the farm,  io dig potatoes after the next election.  Throughout the business world today there are many firms  considering the farmer who never looked upo.n him except ar  an article of convenience years ago. The farmer is coming tc  the front very quickly in the Fraser Valley. The banker,'thc  merchant and the manufacturer is taking him into their confidence and they want his business now that he is more prosperous than he was a few years ago. In the'Ontario governmeir  the farmer and the laboring man have combined"- against the  two old-line politicians to form a government that will be representative of the people. This -will be all right as long a'  they do .not begin pulling crosswise. The farmer would hav(  ���������'��������� ee-i belter to stand alone, as the laboring man smacks tor.  much of the city man, and the cities want all or none.  There are now many farming organizations throughout'the  Fraser Valley and they will do wel! to watch the line of actio"  taken in business as we'll as in politics. The politician is nov.  also watching how united thc farmer stands, and if a bold front  is put on there is no r-eason why farmer legislation can not bt  passed for the good of the Fraser Valley and the rest of th-  farming communities of this province, in the very near future.
