OF .WAY,  r'������*>:  On Thursday evening the  pride,  of Chilliwack "was driven into , Abbotsford and put up at the livery  stablo, for the 'nig;ht.  /Wo  understand 'that   Mr.   J.   A.  Blair has been for sometime   very  anxious to be in a position to do  the  right   thing   when   important  visitors arrive in.the town to stay  ' i   fnw day 3 as gu. s'.u, and has been  quietly looking around      with    a  view  to .secure  a .stylish  spaa  of  roadsters.   Yesterday   evening Mr  T-iair was being highly commanded  by his fellow citizens for his choice  and good judgment i:i having made  auch a good bargain.   So delighted is he with his ibar'ga-n that he  has refused absolutely to take $100  on his deal and as he had already  placed    the magnificent    sum   of  j.t";00 in Ihe bank as <a deposit before the team left Chii'ijwack, it is  likely the  sale wL"\l be icompleted  to-day, in  which  a buckskin  note  S is to be given for the balance.   o   NO  LIGHT YET  There appears to be some difficulty ahead of the town before  electric light can be secured for the  ���������streets and the houses. It is reported that the provincial government who are expected - to erect  the poles for the town, wi!W not do  so until such time as a proper and  correct survey of the town is  made. This will no doubt take  some little and in the meantime  we shall have to do without tho  much expected and long looked for  ���������electric -light.  The Board of Trade have the mat  tor in hand and expect to have satisfactory ai.angements with the  government at an early date.  Mrs. Edson relumed homo Wednesday .evening afier spending, a  pleasant vacation in Vancouver  niv.l'Ladner.  :' In its  deal  with  the - (provincial .  government respecting,   the    .ae-  riuiring of land necessary, for the  laying of the right of way, the. -  fact is disclosed that Mr. William  Mackenzie, president of the Canadian Northern Railway Company,  agreed to buy land as follows;  $5 p,er acre,agricultural -   iLand,  $2.50 for uplands, and SI- an acre fo.r  wild country.   This means an out-  ���������  lay cf thousands of dollars by the*  company which will also have to  make deals with owners of private  property having territory, in  the  area  o,f 'proposed  line3   which   it  might take over.   By this it wiH'  be observed that no provision was'  made  in  the  contract  negotiated  between  the   company   and      the  company and the- provincial government  for  a grant   of     crown.  lands such as prevailed in the case  cf the Grand TrunkPacific,   which  was granted "a  free right of way.

The  school  trustees  convention  hold  recently at  Ke'.owna  appear  to lvava1,, 'been studying "tho interests-of the leaching pr.ifef.a-  ion" in asking that "teachers while  in atUivo service be .allowed to'  write off their first class certificate in three or four j.oci'ovi" There  are undoubtedly many teachers in  the profession holding second class  certificates who if given an op-  l,'oi-������un-i ry   mil-ii   as   me ; torchere'  uoi^veiiuion i.'ji;^'ge������/t  would      take  i  ad v ant ago of u.

They  must earn to .exist.   .There are also  so;me (no doubt   who  do  not feel  justifiietd' in 'taking the time to'attend a higher school to obtain    a  first, for reasons'probably known  only to theimiseLves,   There are at  least two reasons  why ,a teacher  should^ be a-luowed to write for the  first by;easy stages or "sections"  '������������������v.r   ���������'-..' '    .  It is of advantage to the teaching  profession and "of benefit to the  pupil in the schoul room..  The* teacher while "in active service"1' must make his studying for  a   higher certificate a   side  issue  Ho has his regular work to attend  to, thus 'must  devote' only  spare  t::mei to  study.   This  is 'naturally  limited.   It  would   thus   take   him  years to go over the whole course  to prepare for the entire (examin-  a lion   at   once.   In   the  meantime  the curriculum may eh angle,    and  the- work' haft to be 'gone over 'a,-������  gain.   By studying and passing in  ''f-O'C-lj.ons" it Relieves the respon-  aponsibility of tb;e( "active" -teacher.   The highest educational .auth-  ' r{''i-.s will tie!-', us 'that it is     to  I ho ada vantage of the teacher that  he should fol'jow a   regular line of  study while teaching, as .it places  him on a ibasis. similar to that of  tlie. pupil lie is 'teiachi.n/g��������� p/Safcing  his mind in a   r.eicjeptive, .stajge���������,  and thiiiS .ena-hle him to     under-i  stand'the difficulties of a   student  He is better able to teajeh, besides  it increases his value as a teacher  in Mher  ways.       There  are  too  many teachers in the  vhc; go only along the     routine-  work of the school room day after  day without increasing their know  ledge or making what they have  jmorld. fresh,   These   teachers   are-  naturally  a   fai:,unav   Under   such  ti achers, we  hear  the  expression,  frum parents, 'Wonder what is the  matter with Mary and Jim,  they,  do hot .appear to  be  taking anyt  interest in school, these days and  not learning any.'  It .ir.iciht: then bo .considered to  the ladvamtajge of both teacher  and pupil if the resolution asked  for by the trustees were granted.  And it is ro be hoped that due consideration will be given to this  resolution.  Tha      teaching  . profession      is  undoubtedly one of the noblest but  with the work done, If year3 are  devoted to the school room it un-  fits the man or woman for active  Vacii-jjess hfe as many a one has  f.,und. out to his sorrow* This being the case then every opportunity should be given the teacher to  r<-.'ae!\ the highest standard educationally in his profession.. It cer-,  ttiihly will be no detriment to the  profession las it will be -onl,y the'  ambitious teacher who will attempt  to increase, his knowledge with a  vil'MV ojf 'obtaining a higher, certificate. 'The man or woman, who  plods on to success by self study  hi EiirCjjto be a credit to the profession tind of greater benefit in  the school room' We believe it a  wi;.'e move on thc part of the trustees'to ask that such a,resolution  be considered by the department  of education and the government  Besides if we aro correctly informed there are panny, holding seconds who would hail with, delight  the proposed change in the curriculum.

It must be  good food, to play lacrosse on. We  venturer ;to say' there, is no team  from "any province that can win the  Minto Cup from the Sal'monbeHies  except it be a team -from ���������'Nova  Scotia. Then it would be fish a-  gainst fish; -and it is doubtful  j whether the 'Herringhacks ' or ,the  profession | Salmonbellies would come .-out on  top. The Herringback would undoubtedly have.'the - advantage;-  Portunately the Nova Scotiahs do  notplay lacrosse so the cup is  likely to remain in the West.
