The Pioneer: Store  ii  MEETING HELD TO  There is dyking talk on the prairie, and a/ meeting was field at  Huntingdon on Saturday evening to  discuss ways and means towards  a movement to have the work  started. The L.M. Rice ��������� Company,  of Seattle has the contract^but no  move has been made to show they  intend to carry it out���������at least so  far   as   the   public  .are   aware.  There is a rumor to . the effect  that a prominent financier of Van,  couver had left for the financial  centre of the Empire in connection  with   tho   financing   of)  tie,  scheme  In the meantim'e it us reported  that nothing will, be done on the  work untiW next April,' whan it is,  said that about $100 worth of work  may be done iu order, to hold the  contract.  It is -claimed by some that the  present dyking commissioners, Messrs D. McGMivray, H Street, of Chi 1  liwack, Wendell Bowman '��������� anJJ J. L.  Atkinson of Sumas' Prairie, and The Abbotsford Christie minstrels  E.   B   Morgan   of   Vancouver should ��������� are   practising   faithfully every,. Tucs  bout a dozen of the property-hold  ers were present, and after discussion the following resolution was  passed:  "Notice is hereby given _ that a  public meeting will be held in the  municipal hall on Saturday, October 11 at 3 p.m., the object being  to disedss matters generally and  hear from the commissioners it-he  present- , status of ' the dyking  scheme."  There are various plans advanced  by those who wish to see the  work begun and eomplc.tcjd. Mr.  Wm. Faddcn asserts that it would  be best to aivide the 35000 acres  and let jthe owners of the upper  20000 dyke their ' own lanns immed  iately This idea according to reports received from the Upper Sumas, seems to meet with approval, aiJi includes the dredging of  the Vedder river, which would be  the dividing line, making it a  navigable stream, and thereby affording cheaper rates, for the increased amount of the production  as well as for the lumbering output,of   the   Upper   Vedder.  be superceded by the appointment  of new commissioners who will be  'more in touch with the people and  probably see the work through, to  an   early   finish..  With the above object hr view  a meeting was. held at Huntingdon on   Saturday   evening   last,     a-  day evening and expect to give  their first production the last Friday in ��������� November. They. have already rcceivedi invitations to; show  in numerous small towns throughout   the   Valley. .   -  500   Shooting  Notices   For  See  Bates. -  Sale  'Sii-oci/;.'-thc      inauguration   of   the  Matsqui'Agricultural   and- Horticul-  ai Aft'sc-o-ation three years ago wonderful success has been achieved, . and  this year's,fair on the protentious  grounds at G-ifford, for quality and  variety of. .exhibits, attendance and  nature of "tlie entertainment provided,, combined with the excellent  arrangements,- set a new and high,  standard - for" future' exhibitions under the   same   auspices.  With bright'.sunshine tempered by  a coolin|g .breeze,' Friday last was  an ideal day for outdoor enjoyment, , and-, thaiJ*.csr to .this -a large  assemblage ^gathered-" from-the ' "district, .-while also ��������� prominent visitors  ���������weie -.present " from ; New'-. Westminster," Vancouver, Mission City, Ab-  botsic-rcl, Chilliwack and' Sumas,.  Wail!.  In formally opening .the exhibit-  ic-ri. Col. -J. -D. Taylor, M. P. congratulated the society on their  splendid showing made this year,  and 'in his opinion, if the society  would cntc' their, "display -in the  District Exhibit at New Westmins-  ster, he couid see no reason why  they    -should   not   capture' a  prize.  Continuing the federal member  made especial mentioU of the fine  clas > of exhibits displayed in the',  ladiX department and it would be  well for ^thc gentlemen to emulate  tbi* ��������� example of their mothers, wives and sweethearts in preparing the  exhibits, and he thought the ladies  desened' credit noble assistance in  making the fair the success it was  cess  it   was.  He spoke of the rapid develop-  meul; of tha,t section of the Fraser  Valley. He had put a question ���������to  President Owen,- asking what it was  that was most needed. Had Mr.  Owenanticipated the question he did  know but the answer was along the  lines he himself thinking. The answer that Mr. Taylor received was  that agricultural education and also  good   raods.   It   was  just along   the  two lines that the domn'.on govern,  rucnt had- been planning-.assistance.'  C'i 1. Taylor informed his hearers of  the federal appropriation for agricultural education,, and of this a-  mount British Columbia would receive $45,000 at the outset,and this  -.Would   be   increased   to   $60,000.   I'n  the mullet of road assistance, be  said thoie was a deadlock .between  !,.x; two houses at" Ottawa over a  biij providing for this, and that  h ��������� pen c willy would do all in his  power, to induce the senate to .pass  the measure even if he ,had to go  into   the   Senate himself  The lower floor of the spacious hall  presented a very attractive appearance, the arrangements of'the ex  hibits ��������� being perfectly , effective  and tasteful. Everything was in order, and the prize winning articles  or products of the field could be  disceincd at   a   glance.  The' fruit display was one of the  best seen hr the Valley.for ' some  time, some excellent .exhibits of  peaches from the orchards of Messrs T.- Lehman and W. J. Marsh, at  trading attention.- Mr. Owens excellent.- display of table fruit also  desened "well merited praise.j others winning prizes in this exhibit  were Messrs Merryfield Bros. Taylor  Bros.;- A. Gillis, T. Goodchild and  ���������D. anb-A'. Nicholson.  -The display-"of''field- roots,- vegetables auJ   fruits was   good.        There  was a iins display of potatoes,   comprising   most of all  the well known  varieties; prizes   being divided among  G.   H.   Haverman, H. C. Bonson, , J..  A.   Morrow,, Wm. Towland and A. L.  Bates.      Notable  among  the  garden  truck were some line outside 'grown  tomaloes   by   Mr.   Philip    Jack-man,,  corn by Mrs. Harrjjon    and   rhubarb  from   the   garden of Mr.  P.   L. Ket-  chcsoii,   Hatzic,   and    cabbage    from  Mrs.  Laxton's  garden at Ferndale.  On the ,other side of the aisle one  saw a. comprehensive display of the  products of the dairy and it-he kitchen. In this section Mrs. McKin-  non took the prizes for butter, and  the' awards for the best loaves of  home'-made bread went to Mrs. A. L  Bates, first, and Mrs. W. Bates, sec-  01 Ji.  Out in the stables .there was a  good display of grade, ��������� draught and  agricultural horses as one ��������� sees  anywhere in country fairs and there  were entnes of fine driving and  s.i.idlc hr.'-^.es. The man who won a  pri/c couid congratulate himself in  Ihe fact that the:ewere .others to  compete against, and that he did  not win the prize because he was  the only entry. As high as seven  and eight competed for the same  prize Worthy of especial in cotton is the young team of grade  Clydcs shown in harness by Mr. A.  Gillies, Mt Lehman; a high class  roadster mare wijth foal at foot  from the stables of John Murray,  Murrayville, both dam and foal be-  inging especally fine animals; and a  saddle horse with s plendid action,  shown   by  Horace   Penzer.  The   exhibits   of   cattle, sheep and  swine     was not ��������� very   ' large       but  the   stock   as,.a rule high   grade.  The poultry building contained a  a large number of high grade birds  for there arc a number of expert  poultry men in Matsqui. The best  showing was made in . Leghorns,  Ri������>.'.!������s   and, Orphiii^tons.  The   upper   portion   of   the     building   was ' dcvotpfl   to  the floral  display,   ladies   and   children's   work.  The flowers were arranged in a  brilliant array down the centre of  the hall presenting a very harJd-  somc picture���������some excellent roses, '  asters, dahlias, potted( plants, bou  quels and   wreaths   beii.y    shown  The most  extensive   display  apart -  Irom    the;    flower^   was   that     oD  the ladies' work,   occupying the. side  and   a    portion    of   the   centre     of'  the   upstairs,      and   which     proved"  a   source   of   endless admiratioiJ    to  the   lady  visitors,   Some very  dainty   hand made    cushions,  pieces     of  crochet,     table    covers-,    etc.,   were  displayed "all bearing   the mark     of  patience,   skill, ability and taste oil  the"par"t of 'their owners:  Another   display   to  attract   f. the,  .eye was. that of   the preserved fruits  jellies'   and  pickles.   This'  was   - In-  atkact attention at a much larger exhibition.    .  ' In*" the evening a popular dance was  held in the big exhibit,which was  attended by young people from all  over   the   district.  The committees of   the day were:  Yardmaster,' Mr. J. .A.

Now, then, who does  It look like?"  "Like Wnrdrop," I confessed. "By  Jove, Lhey didn't both do It."  "And he didn't do It himself for two  good reasons: He had no revolver that  night and there were no powder  marks."  "And the eleven twenty-two and  Miss Maitland's disappearance?"

But  disappearances are my specialty, per  haps, if I have a piece of pie and some  cheese"���������  But 1 got him away at last, and we  walked together down the street.  "I can't quite see the old lady in it,"  he confessed.  "Burton, who do you think was in  the Fleming house last night?" I said.  "Lightfoot." he said succinctly.  He stopped, under a street lamp and  looked at his watch.  "I believe I'll run over to the capital  tonight. While I'm gone-I'll be back  tomorrow night'or the next morning���������  I wish you would find Rosie O'Grady  or whatever her name is, and locate  Carter. - That's probably hot his name,  but It will answer for awhJJe. Then  get your friend punter to keep him in  sight for awhile until I come back anyhow. I'm beginning to enjoy this. We  are going to make the police department look tike a kindergarten playing  jackstraws.  "And go to Bell wood and find out a  few things," he added. "It's all. well  enough to say the old lady was a meek  and timid person, but. if you want to  know her peculiarities go to her neighbors."  We separated at the station. Burton  off to Plattsburg. I to take a taxicab  and armed with a page torn from the  classified directory to inquire at as  many of the twelve Anderson's drug  stores as might be necessary to locate  Delia's gentleman friend, "the clerk,"  through him Delia arid through Delia  the mysterious Carter.  I had checked off eight of the An-.  dersons on my list ..without result, and  the taximeter showed something over  $19 when the driver drew up at the  curb.  VGentleman in the other cab is hailing you, sir���������the one that's been following as."  A duplicate of my cab stood perhaps  fifty feet behind, and from it a familiar figure was slowly emerging. The  figure stopped to read the taximeter,  shook bis fist fit the chauffeur and approached ma   It was Davidson.  "That liar and thief back there has  got me rung up for $19," he said, ignoring my amazement; "Nineteen dollars and forty cental"  He surveyed my expense account at  the driver's elbow, then hit the meter  a smart slap, but the figures did uot  change.  "Nineteen dollars!" he repented,  dazed. "Nineteen dollars and-look  here." he called to bis driver, "it's only  30 cents here. Your clock's 10 cents  fast."  'He borrowed $8 and crawled in wltb  ine.  "The next address on the list is .the  right one," be said. ."I'm-going to tell  you something.

"You'll let It drop because it's too  hoi to hold," he retorted, with the suspicion of a smile. "If you are determined to know about Carter I can tell  you everything that ia necessary."  The chauffeur*stopped his engine  with an exasperated jerk and settled  down in tils seat, every line of his back  bristling with irritation.  "I prefer learning from Carter himself."    -  He leaned back In his seat and produced an apple from .the pocket of his  coat.

"Until all this blows over," I said  bitterly.  "The trip was for the benefit of his  health. He has been suffering and still  is suffering from a curious lapse of  memory." Davidson smiled at me engagingly. "He has entirely forgotten  everything that occurred from the time  he entered Mr. Fleming's employment  until that gentleman left hornet. I  doubt if he will ever recover."  With Carter goue, his retreati;cover-  ed by the police, supplied with funds  from some problematical souree, fur-^  ' ther. search for him was worse than  useless. In fact, Davidson strongly intimated that it might be dangerous  aud would be certainly unpleasant. -I  yielded ungraciously and ordered the  cab to take me home. But on the way  I cursed my folly for n,ot haviug followed this obvious clew earlier, and I  wondered what this thing .could he  that Carter knew, 'that was at least  surmised by various, h^druvirtursjuie-n  nnif'yer "was "s~o 7urefillly 'hidden from  the world at large.  The party.newspapers had come out  that day with a signed.statement from  Mr. Fleming's physician in Plattsburg  that he. had been iu ill health and inclined to "melancholia for some time.  The air was thick with rumors of differences with his party. The dust  cloud covered everything. Pretty soon  if would settle and hide the trucks of  those who had hurried to cover under  its protection.  Davidson left me at a corner down-'  town. He turned to give me a parting  admonition.  "There's an old axiom in the mills  around here. "Never sit down on a piece  of metal until you spit on it.' If it sizzles, don't sit." He grinned.- "Your  best position just now, young man. is  standing, with\vo.ur hands over your  iiead. Confidentially, there ain't anything withiu^exiiectorating distance  Just now that ain't pretty well bet up."  He left me with that, and 1 did not  see him again until the night at the  White. Cat, when he. helped, put me  through the transom. Recently, however, I have met him several times.  He' invariably mentions the S8 and  his intention of repaying it. Unfortunately the desire and the ability have  .not yet happened to coincide.  I took the evening train to. Hellwood  and got there shortly after S in the  midst of the Sunday evening calm, and  the calm of a place like Bell wood is  the peace of death without the hope  of resurrection.  . Promiscuous inquiry was not advisable. So far Miss Jane's disappearance was known to very few, and Hauler had ad vised caution. 1 wandered  up the street and turned at random to  (he right. A few doors ahead a newish  .red b������"ick building proclaimed itself the  postolfice. it occurred to me that here  ''inside was the one Individual who, theoretically at least, in a small place always knows the idiosyncrasies of its  people.  'The-postmaster proved to be a one  armed veteran of the civil war. and  he was sorting rapidly the contents of  a mail hag. emptied on the counter.  "No delivery tonight," he said shortly.   "Sunday delivery, 2 to 3."  "I 'suppose, then. 1 couldn't get a dollar's worth of stamps?"  . "We  don't  sell  stamps on  Sunday  nights." be explained.    "But if you're  in a hurry for them"���������  "I inn," 1 lied. And after he had got  them out. counting them with a wrinkled finger, and tearing them off the  sheet..with the deliberation'of age. 1  opened a general conversation.-  It was when I asked him about, bis  empty sleeve, and he had told me that  he   lost   bis  arm  at  Cbancellorsville,  i: ' i  ii  .<:.!

The building would  cost in the neighborhood of filteen  thousand, and would he in all probability a cement structure. When  complcti'l the hotel would cost a-  bout $35',000.
