LEONORA DALE  OLD-TIMERS MEET  AT MT.'LEHi  BY LUGAL  Saturday last...Was a day long-  to bo remembered in Mt. Lehman.  The occasion was the re-union from  far and near of pioneers who for ^  thirty years have watched With  prid- the growth'of IhuV pari of the.  Fraser  -Valley.  . The assemblage congregated in the  Orange Hall and after, all had  been accounted for grouped themselves together and had their photo taken. After, tlie photographer had Jin  ished his pleasant duty, the ladies  served tea in Hie hall. After all  hud partaken heartily of the delicacies served, speeches were given by  Mossr:; Marsh, Morrison, McDougall,  Phillips, Rev. Mr. Roid and Reeve  Merry lie Id.  In   the   evening     the     younger   ole-  jnent   enjoyed    a   dance   in the hall.  Among those attending Avho hewed  ploasunt homes for themselves out  of the virgin forest and made Mt.  Lehman what it is to-day, were, in  order of   residence:  Mr. and Mrs. T. Lehman, Mrs. M.  J. Middlolon, Mrs. A. McCallum,  Mr. E. King,, Mr. Geo. Boyle, Mr, J  Carmiohael, Mr. William Merrylield,  Mr. \V. Towlan, Mr. and Mrs. Mai  ; colm Morrison, Mr. and Mrs. iA.  Nicholson, Mr, and Mrs. D. Nicholson,  Mr.    and   Mrs.    McLean,   Mr.  A.  Gic-at   excitement   reigned   in    ' Ab-  bots.'ord    this   week.    Bill   Campbell,  who   when   not    "repairing    watches,  plays    goal'   for   the    Abbotsford lacrosse   club,     shot   a     pheasant  this  week.  Bill   had   his   eye   on this bird  from   its   infancy,  in   fact, during the  cold   weather he   took particular and  stn-i.nous.caro  that   it  should receive  bounUous      nourishment,    even    Geo.  Clark   assisted   him   in  rearing      the  bird.   But, alas, the fifteenth was   too  tempting   a   day   to   allow   this   big  fellow   to   run   at   large,   and  maybe  become   the      meal   of    some   hunter  whose   feelings   were   not   as   delicate  as  Bill's.   Therefore   our frend  decided   that   he  he would   have   the  first  slu.i, he   eventually used twenty-three  dollars   and   thirteen   cents  worth   of  ammunition   which  he  purchased      of  Mr.    Alanson, in   getting J,ho bird,but  ho   got   it   all   right.   Some of     Mr.  Booltcr's chickens were killed at     the  same   time,' but that has   nothing to  do   With  Bill's  shooting   abilities...  MeL-an, Mr. and Mrs. Will. Marsh,  Mr. W. Thompson, Mr, and Mrs.  R. Ferguson, Mr. and Mrs. Nichol,  Mr. John Morrison, 'Mr. and Mrs. D.  McDougall, Mr. ��������� and Mrs. A. Gil-.  ]is, "Mr., ^and Mrs. E. White, Mr. R.

Mr.  Atkinson moved an amendment that  tho. time be*,unlimited. The amendment 'was .lost', '13. voting for the  .amendment and,,38' against. The original" motion'of' Mr;-Serl "carried. '  "Mr. Knox stated" that' th'o secretary of the Dyking Commission was  not .able to attend the meeting on  account of business engagement in  Vancouver. . .  Mi-. Atk nson, made a report on be  half of the ' Dyking " ' Commissioners,  and stated that .in his opinion the  reast-u that the work was not now  in progress was on ' account of the  delaj in securing the grant of the  lako lands; that he believed that L.  M. Rice & Co., responsible and intended   and   would   build   the   dyke.  Mi'. W. C. Bowman on behalf of  the commissioners-read a letter from  L. M. Rice & Co., which was- to;  the same effect as the remarks of  Mr. Atkinson. Mr.- Blatcliford stated  that, little progress -had , been made  towards!tho building of the dyke. Mr.  Trwin asked Mr. Atkinson how long  Rice had to start. - Mr. Atkinson  then       answered that the     work  must be commenced within one year-  from date of signing order in council, his recollection being that the  order was ��������� signed on May 13th. Mr  Fooks stated that the Work would  be commenced within on year from  February  8th,  1913.  Mr. Eldridge stated reason of delay  fro'.-. February 8th, to May 1913.  Tl ere was some discussion as to  what guarantee the commissioners  had that the work would be started in a substantial way. Mr. Atkinson answered that the contract was  clear on that point. Mr. Knox asked  ic Rico had^ put- up the two thousand dollars on signing the contract.  Mr. Atkinson said thatthe matter  was provided for in the contract. Mr  Brown asked if work was to bo  completed in two years. Mr. Atkinson answered .that if work was star  ted in May, next year, ������Ke dyke  would   have   to   be   completed in  1wc   years  from   said   date.  Mi. Serl made some remarks to  tlie effect that the contract as it  was printed' and circulated among  the   land   owners was   not   an   exact  Mis. Leonora Dale, a resident of  Mt. Lehman, met with a sudden  death, 'while travelling home with  her son,' Mr. Fred H. Dale,, on the  8'15 Chilliwack train. She was taken suddenly ill immediately after  the tiain .started and expired before medical assistance could reach  her. The crew of the train seeing  that the lady was in a dangerous  condition, ' ran ' the train back to the  station, but nothing could be done  to save her. The deceased who had  reached /the age of 72 years, had  been visiting relatives in Victoria  and returned to New Westminster  where her' son met her and was taking' her back to her home atMt.  Lehman.  The funeral was held from Mc-  Murchie's undertaking parlors to the  Fraser cemetery. Rev. W.

Friday,   Oct. 17,  1913  A   UNIVERSITY EDUCATION  In   view    of    the    interest   taken   in  the   establishment   of   British   Colum-  bias   new    university       the   following   student    will    always   be av ill ing,    . to  while getting the benefit of modern  athletic practice himself,. to let some  other fellow help to keep up ' the  prestige of theinstitulioii in the  great   matches."  rom     the   editorial    columns  Toronto    Globe    is highly a-  articki  of the  propos  "The time of the year has arrived for the great annual assembling  of .students in the institutions devo-  tedto 'higher education.' Of tho  whole comjiminily only a very small  minority of its members ever secure a  preparatory training beyond the  course of . study in tho primary  schools, and a very small minority  of that minority ever pass into the  colleges and universities In other  Avords 'higher education' has always  been , and must , always/' be the  privilege of the fo.w. This privilege  is costly to the community around  and also to the individual student  and therefore it is not. unreasonable  to ask Jiiiiii on the eve of another  session to think AVhat all this means  how he can best turn it to his own  advantage, and Avhat he can plan  and do for the community which  has made this advantage possible  for   him. ,  "The   planning, if not   also some of  ��������� the   doing  ought to  begin at   the opening   of   a   student's   first session in  the   university,   Properly     every  high  school   scholar  should   be  required to  think   rationally   about  his   preparatory   course,     for   options   are   many  and   embarrassing   even   there,      and  the   situation   is   still    more complex  in   tho   higher  institutions.   The. Arts  curriculum "of   the . Provincial  University,     for     example,     resolves   itself  primarily   into   for.   great sections: literary, historical,  scientific,  and philo  . sophical.   Each  of    these  is  sub-divided iu  various    ways,     ��������� and  artificial  grouping,    under   the   exercise of     op  tions,   may  be   carried^  on to  an   indefinite     extent     according   to       tho  tastes-   of   the, student, if he has any  special    bias,:,(   to    the   suggestion     o!'

"The   fundamental   conception   of a  university   training is   that   it should  primarily   be   cultural   and   not   simply   or   even   mainly  vocational.   One  of   the   best     definitions   e\rcr    gi\-en  of      'culture'   for   academical purposes  ��������� ,s   that   it   is   not   amassed      knoAV-'  ...leclgo   but   a   condition   of   the intell-  ect,'    and     if   this     could   be      kept  steadily   in   view    as   an   educational  . ideal it AVould   not    matter     greatly  in   which   of    the   four   great   cultural .areas   above  mentioned   the   student   might   choose  to    do the      chief  part'   of   his   AVork.    Culture   is   absol  utely   conditioned     on   the   persistent  and   continuous   practice   of research,  whatever   the   subject   matter     of     a  course   may  be, for   this   among other   reasons:   it   is  the best  Avay      for  the   teacher   to   continue his   own de-  A-clopmcnt,   and. it   is   his most effec-  litive   means    of   keeping   the      stud-  dents   really    interested   in    their  daily work.   Li  any research  AVorthy   of  the   name   the   student   miitit   discover things   for   himself,    and not merely   learn    by     rote,    lo   b?   reproduced     at   some     written    exa initiation,  what   some   other  person has discovered and systematized.  "The place of athletics j in the university is a matter of importance.  The groat majority of students arc  naturally interested in , physical  games, but there is a regrotable dis  position to eojoy the match from  the grand stand or the 'bleachers'1  instead of participating in! the  sports   themselves.

"I don't know whether she did or  |  not" he said coldly, and my further  attempts to beguile nim into conversation failed. , I pocketed my stamps,  and by that time his resentment at my  curiosity was fading. He followed me  to the door and lowered his voice cautiously.    ���������r  "Any news of the old lady?" he asked.

And when it was all over wp'went  back lo Fred's until the Fleming house  could be put into order again.  Mrs. Butler arrived that day. which  made Fred suspicious that, Edith's plan  to bring her far antedated his consent.  But she was there when .we got home  from the funeral, and after one glimpse  at her thin face and hollow eyes I  begged Edith to keep her away from  Margery! for that day at least.  ��������� Mrs.. Butler was exhausted by her  journey und'retired to her room almost  immediately 1 watched her slender  figure go up the stairs, and with her  black trniliuggown and colorless fare  she was,an embodiment of all thai u  lonely and helpless.

The sunlight caught the riug on her  engagement finger, und she flushed  suddenly as-she saw me looking at it  We sat there for a while saying nothing. The long May afternoon was  coming to a close. The paths began to  fill with long lines of hurrying home-  seekers, their day in ofilce or factory  at an end.  Then impulsively she' held out her  hand to me.  "You have been more than kind to  me," she said hurriedly.    "You.have  taken me Info your home���������and helped  me through these dreadful days���������and  I will never forget it.   Never!"

The prosaic  worid wrapped us around again. There "  "Thanks," I returned,-and went out J talk fo you  into the quiet street.  I  walked  past  the  Maitland  place.  but the windows were dark and  the  house closed..

Amid all this state Margery moved,  stricken and isolated. She went to the  cemetery with Edith.

POTATOES  MAY  GO VERY HIGH  Lash year there was very large  acreage of potatoes in the Fraser  Valley and thousands upon thousands of tons were fed to the hogs da^  or lot rot for the want of bogs  to which to feed them. There Was  no market or next to none last  winter  As a consequence this season tlie  most of the farmers were disgusted  with potatoes and as a result the  acreage was little more than half  of   last- season.  The potato market to date can  not be said to have been good,and  in scnie localities sales have been  blade   as    low   as   ten  dollars a  ion.   But   as   a   rule    few   No.    One  potatoes have yet been - put on tlie  market ft is pretty generally considered that the price will advance  very shortly.
