J/L.   Campbell and Mr. J.  J.   McPhee.   Rev.  Mr.-     Campbell  made a   fine speech/'the theme of  which was that the present centur>  was Canada's great day and grow  ing tim<) and^that the present one  hundred years belonged to itscil-  lieus,  and   when   its   annab   wco  wvatcn in history, the growth, boLh  in population and national greatness would be^more favorable    to  Canada than any .other country on  the  Amer'can  continent.      Mr.   J.  J. McPhee made a   happy speech  wheh highly pleasecMiis audience,  but he thought there was another  view to that of-the previous speak  er in that the nineteenth cenlury  had  been  a   very   important   one  to the majority of the people present that evening���������the century     in  which most of them had seen    the  light of day and the present would  undoubtedly see the last of them  '���������Abbotsford" was the' next toast  and Messrs Joseph'Scott of Chiliiwack and Mr. S. S. DeLair were call  ed upon to 'reply.   Mr. DeLair said  the Abbotsford of to-day was quite  a   'different >place   from   what   it  was when he first came -to .   the  \jl:icei, and when he first came he-  did noil ever expect to -enjoy'such  a   banquet as  the present in  the  short space^ of ten years.   When he  Tiist came there, was no accommodation ,for travellers to stay.   He  pointed   out  the  many   improvements that had taken plaice since  that date;/but the future (held .still  very bright prospects for the little t own, which was to surely grow  :md increase 'in'importance.-  Mr. Scott said that he'was in Abbotsford   some   twnty  years   ago  and as. far he could remember the  only resident then was a.  man who  l:ved  in   the   hollow  cedar stump  about  where  tlie present      Maple  jC-afHcl now stands.

There were guests present from  -ill the surround'ng district���������Lang-  ley, Huntingdon, Sumas, Mission,  Matsqui, Mt. Lehman, Peardonvil'f  Aldergrove, Chiliiwack and other  points.  The evening would not haytf  he^n co'm,plete without a dance-  and this was arranged for, and ,be  gun about twelve o'clock. Three  ('clock saw the happy party depart for their several homes, wishing nof.doubt that another of Ab-  boisford's (popular young men  would 'soon dc/fide to jbecomo a  benedict.  The "music of'the'-evening was  supplied by'Rushton's orchestra ?I  New Westminster, to whom dancing music seemed to be a fine srl.

FOOTBALL NOTES  In speaking, of the cup gh en to  the, Abbotsford team' fo competition and the .rules in connection.  with the winning, thereof, the Pro  gress has the following to bay :  All' in this city intending to en- "  ter the contest will have to gov-  rn  .Ufemaelves   accordingly   and  have their entries in Dec. 10   It will  be noticed by the foregoing rulea  rvd conditions that the^cup is al- ;  ready',   before   being   played   for,  -oretty- ca-.led down in.:Abbotsforcl. -  Jt" simply, ihearis thatv-when every"-  game has, to be played in Abbots-: :  Tord team or with .one ��������� from Lang- ,���������  loy, or Mt. Lehman, a .club must ���������  be pretty ,well .financed  to stand  -hu  strain  of expenses.   However.  JhTiwauk has . a - few teams  that  can play some, football, and thr������re    -  is ho) doubt but that they jvill" bes ..  on the grounds to ������nter the    con-   -^  test in the face of the heavy handicap.   They turned the' trick on the  Abbotsford boys a   few weeks  a- c  go rather nicely, and they feel  it  is in them1 to do it many timea^ a-  It can be safely vouched for that  when a   Chiliiwack team comes to     ;  Abbotsford somej of the boys will  be at the! depot to meet:theui and  extend to them the free:! >m of the  town.    ; 'and will also  be  on the  field promptly' to play and not to  keep the Chiliiwack boys waiting  and when the (game is half over to  put on any fresh players  The rules 6T the competition are  surely plain enough.   The follow--  ing it v\ claimed is a fair,method  of'providing for'expenses of vfeit-  ug teams f  It is the intention  of the 'local  club to devote, the gate receipts to  the paying of" the expenses of ;the  visiting team, less their car fare  and to share what is over with the  contesting teams each match day.  In the case of the Pakenham' cup  put up at 'Mission City iby CMr. P.  E. Pakenham, no provisions     are  made; for, expenses at all; iand the  contesting   teams   are   always   to  play at Mission City on Labor Day  >f each year and the contest to be  finished at the; exhibition at that  lown if necessary.  The football team here will be  pleased to have the Chiliiwack  team "that can play some football5'  compete; for the* cup  Yesterday an accident happened  n the B. C. E. R. near Vcddcr  mountain The tender jumped the  ,track. Mr. J. Alcroft had his legs  broken arid Mr. Fuller the engineer  was badly fcalded, while 'Mr. Moore  had his arm broken.

We concur with  the  resolution  passed! atf the Convention of B. C.  School Trustees last week, disapproving of the practice of giving  children home-work, as absolutely  unnecesGary.   If a   teacher cannot  rget  through sufficient work dur-  ,ngth le  prescribed  school (hours,  there is no  use  trying to believe  ..hat /extra lessonu at home .are going to help out much.   The hours  set apart for school during the day  should be ample-to obtain results  .arid when they'are- over t.ie ch 1  ! requires something, elae to occupy  ,ts mind.   Let him 'enjoy his game;,  and XM hours, of happy leisure''in  ais home, circle. and.he..will-,be all  the more ready next morn'ng. fresh  and vigorous to go on with    his  .~U..ets.   A  ie-8onable  amount  of  ,vork, will create,, i.ii his brain a liking forj. it, but too, much .will .turn  ais spirit! against it as ia   thing of  drudgery anc\ only to be done because he has to do it. . Work under  buch conditibnox is(useless; but ra-  .ther cultiva.te-a- .real keen interest  ,n hist lessons and the boy or girl  will maka quicker and better progress.   This .giving .of home work '  lay after, day. iB one of the barn-v.  iclos which sti.l cling to our educational system, and is too heavy a,  tax on' the. mental capacity of the  children. : It is rather the teacher  who should wcrk overtime; his or  her buslneg3'should'not be merely  that   of   a , monitor,   who . directs  studies.   There., is   frequently   too  little; teaching; and. too, much     dependence upon, text books, and the.  unaided efforts of the pupil.   With  all  our   development, in   teaching,  methods,: we; are, still a . long way  from the ide,al.���������Mail-Herald.  There is ;a gce.at difference -of.  opinion regarding- home work.: It  is a well known fact that bur boys  and girls, of British Columbia aje  generally speaking, not much ov"-  er .burdened; with study. We hear  ��������� f- very fe,w pupils having to leave  school on account of .being overburdened with work. Judging by  the muhiber that run the streets  it would) appear that there is not  enough home.work given ,  In the giving, of home work or  home lessons there are two important factors, first the home and  then the teacher. If the parents  are very much .interested in the  progress of their, children and are  working with the teacher a ffew  home lessons (bearing on the day's  work are* not out of place. Then  homel workfin the hands of a judicious teacher hao ever proved a  help.to the advancement of the  pupil.  In our educational system we  neied never, be afraid to teach the  boys anc] girls the habits of industry and love, of work. The  old saying, "There is no royal road  to learning" is just a strue jiow as  was taany years ���������������������������ago. Many of  the; young people graduate from'  our, schools with but the smallest  idea o,f what it is to undertake  ���������work and, complete^ it to.the satisfaction of thosa for whom it is to  he done. Home work from the  school helps to make the pupil rely on his own efforts���������just the  kind of self reliance .which stands  good.in all walks of life.  .

ACQUIRED RUNNING RIGHTS  An announcement oJ importance  was made Tuesday to the effect  that the Canadian Northern Railway Company, have secured runnr  Ing rights over, the Great North-:  ern line .from the south encLof the  New Westminster, bridge to Port  Kells, some ten'miles, up the .River  and through the Port Mann town-  site. This deal has been pending  for sometime and Mr. Holt, chief  financial agent of the McKenzie  and Mann interests and the Canadian Northern Pacific Railway  Company, did not deny that it was  satisfactorily concluded. Pending  this settlement the Canadian North  ern have done no grading from the  bridge to. Port Kells Their surveyed line ran parallel to the G.  N. ?R. for that distance and as the  latter company now runs only one  train per. day over this portion\of  the line it would not interfere with  the C. N. R. operations. This  is believed to be the, first >step of  the C. N. R. to acquire control  of the V.

Last season-was the firs.t time  that Ontario fruit had .been -hand-  | lod on this market in ���������large,quan-  !titiesrby the auction method, and  att he close of the season there was  considerable to criticise in the con  dition of the fruit, the packing and  ���������the transport service received. The  McNaughton Fruit Exchange, as  the, oldest auction house, was first  v.sited. The fact that the rooms  have been removed from the old  J stand, on-Princess. St., to .premises  four times the size, indicated that  that there ,was something doing.  Mr. .McNaighton said, "The season has been a good one, we. have  .Kindled 100 c^s from St. Catherines and have.more on the way and  these'do not include apples, but on  ly !plums,'peacnes, pear3, crabs,and  grapes. l  "The British Columbia fruit has  been very satisfactory on the whole  We handled about fourteen cars,  mainly) plums, prunes .and box apples of the larger fruits, and a  large quantity of raspberries and  blackberries. The berries were  very 'much Ibetter packed than last  year, and came' through in good  shape. The plums an dprunes were  fine an dwere well packed, but arrived, ratherfisoft, as some of them  were eight days coming through.  British Columbia should /have a  faster service, there is no reason  in the woi{ld why we should not  get cars from' the coast hi -.four  days.   It would mean 30 per cent  more to the growers ji'f this fruit  were delivered promptly while it  is in good shape.  "Speaking  generally,,     I   think  there has been a ' very, marked/improvement in the supply of Cariad--  ian fruit on this market, aud buyers  have shown -their appreciation  of  !f i> ~ '       .'

The iBrtiish Columbia fruit  had all come; through F. R. Stewart,-of-Vancouver, and'some of it  had been? rather-soft. Mr. Sinclair  ha dfound the B.
