Phillips, who had been sent to  the Coast to interview the commanding  officers of the Infantry units in Vancouver, New Westminster and North Vancouver. Mr. G. B. Armstrong, the  chairman, ��� called on the secretary to  read the minutes of the previous meeting which were adopted. Mr. Armstrong  then asked the secretary to give his report, which was asfollows :  ���. "To the chairman and memLers of the  Citizens committee.  Gentlemen.���With reference to my  visit to the Coast on business pertaining  to the Militia Camp in the Nicola Valley,  I beg to report as follows :  i I left Merritt on Wednesdays train  ���for Vancouver. On Thursday I 'inter-,  viewed Col. Leckie of 72nd Seaforth  Highlander.; Col. Hulme of 6th Duke of  Connaughts Own Rifles, Brigadier Duff-  Stuart, and Major M. J. Crehan of the  -Irish Fusiliers. To each of these gentlemen I explained what I had been sent  down for, but made in clear that'.'.the  things I mentioned were only in a- formative stage and;tliat nothing definitely  would;be settled till after submitting  my report, to you.  Col. Hulme of the 6th, ->yhich is the  premier regiment of Vancouver,, stated  that through all his camping experience  in B.C.', no place had ever gone to thc  trouble that Merritt proposed doing.  The Colonel also stated that directly  any thing: .was arranged would I write  "him, so that he may announce arrangements' to his'officers and men on parade.  , Col." Leckie thought the idea of a  train to and from csmp was an excellent Vne. " He "explained that the men  ���*���*��� would- be"workiftg>*>iard during the^day'  and the train would save any further  exertion in the evening. He also stated  that anything the citizens of Merritt  did to make matters comfortable, his  officers and men would be delighted.  \ Brigadier Duff-Stuart,swho will be in  charge of the Infantry Brigade, was of  the opinion that the proposed plans as  outlined to-him, were excellent, he  wished to be kept informed of our definite arrangements.  Major M. J. Crehan, second in command of the Iiish Fusiliers, stated that  .bo sure were the Irish of going into  camp in the Nicola .Valley that the officers had made arrangements fora local  man to supply the mess. The Major  was positive that his.CO., brother officers and men would be delighted to visit  the Valley, in fact Mr. Crehan said that  the regiment would go into camp at no  other place. -'  ; On Good Friday, I went to New West-;  minster and had a talk to Col. JV D.  Taylor, M.P., officer commanding the  104th reg. of that city.' The_ Colonel  "hlaa=th^^ighfbefoWiafriv��d"fr*^Otra"-  wa, and tho he had not said anything  to the Minister "of Militia, he understood that the Valley was the place  chosen for the 1914 camp. The Colonel  requested me to keep in touch with  Major C E. Doherty and tell him of  our plans.        "  On Saturday I interviewed Major M.  Moore, A,S.C, and Mr. Boase, Assist.  Gen. Pass. Agent, C.P.R. Major Moore  stated that tenders would be called for  locally for supplying the camp with all  the goods required.  Mr. Boase stated that he could not  give a rate on the special train till,he  knew just what equipment the militia  would require, then he could tell what  carriages and engines they could leave  at the cam p.' While I was in his office  ���he gave instructions-to one of his.meh  ���,to find out immediately what.equipment  <would be necessaiy, and then write-me  ������to"*-.'

"  The committee were of the opinion  that the secretary had done very wel]  and on motion of Messrs. Strickland  and Cleasby the report was received  and the thanks of the meetingextended  to the secretary for his very good report. Various matters were then discussed and the meeting stood adjourned  the next meeting being at the call of  the chair.    r  .Word was received yesterday that  the Militia camp was going to  be held  in Kamloops,  and the local  business  (Continued on page 4)  Distressing Fatality  At Canford Mill  Mill Man at Nicola Valley Pine  & Lumber Company Falls  Over Dam  A very distressing accident happened  to D. Marcelini at Canford last Sunday  From the evidence submitted to thc  jury called to decide on the cause of  the death, it was stated that the affair  was a pure accident. The full text of  the verdict rendered by the jury under  foreman W. K. Heslop is as  follows:  "We the jury impanelled  to consider  the circumstances attending the death  of Dajostini   Marcelini,   find  that  the  deceased met is death by  falling, over  the dam at the mill of the.Nicol.t Valley Pine and  Lumber Co.   on  Sunday  April  12th  the  fall resulting _ in the  injuries in accordance with the medical  evidence, and resulting in death.   We  findthat the deceased met his death  through an anavoidable accident,  and  no  blame "attaches  to  any person. "  From the evidence of James Cummings Jr,   the deceased,  who  was a  married man,"an Italian,Iw.i.th a family  in Italy, had finished the raising of the  dam; with the help of witness and another man.   The three  men  then  got  into  the boat.     Cummings  took   the  oars, and deceased the piice'pole,  Marcelini stuck the pole into "the dam  to  hold the boat off.   After a little while  the deceased attempted toTget another  hold with his pole,;;and inidping so, the  boat swerved toward   the" dam,  and  started going over.   Cummings shouted-to the men   to-'get  out.    Petrinski  the other man, and witness got out on  to the dam,   theie  was  not sufficient  water  coming over the dam that a  good foothold could  not be obtained.  Deceased started to get out of the boat  and put one foot on the darn, and he'd  on the boat with his left > hand,  then  the poor fellow seemed to loose his  balance, as the boat weiii',over, ' and  _de.ceasecL.andJ_ oat Jio'th.^von t^S>ver". -  Witness "stated���that there would  be  about 10 to 16 feet of water; at the  foot of the dam,   and he did  all  that  was  possible  to   save  the   man.    He  entered the water but (he swift current  swept the deceased  ahead of him by  over fifteen feet.   Witness  considered  that the boat was perfectly sound, and  not by any means dangerous,   and  if  the man had  held  on  a  little  longer  with his pole, he would have been able  to nose  the boat upstream with  his  oars.   By   the Coroner:   If the man  had jumped when  Petrinski  and himself had done the accident would  not  have happened.   Ed F. O'Connor gave  evidence and stated that he  had seen  the accident from the bank and corroborated Cummings' evidence.   Truman^  Wilson and Peter Backs told how they  recovered the body about 2 miles down  the stream at the back of a tree' root.  Dr. G. H. Tutill M.D. the Coroner  stated that the real cause of death was  a-broken neck.

Western Freight  Rates.  How B, C. is Affected  Passenger Tariffs for British Columbia Unchanged���No Mention  of Freight Rates as to Coal; Rates from Vancouver  to Interior Reduced  Government Drafts  New Regulations  Half Section will be Maximum  of Ranching Land that can  be Leased,  The main readjustment deals with  the fixing of a standard scale of maximum freight rate3 for the prairie section, the British Columbia lake section  and the Pacific Ccast section. The  lowest scale in the West, namely the  Manitoba standard tariff, will apply to  the other two prairie provinces and the  British Columbia lake section. A somewhat higher but decreased standard is  to apply to the Pacific section. By  this readjustment Manitoba retains  her present standard tariff, and' the  other provinces benefit by a substantial reduction. ���  *"���- Special Tariff-*.  ��� Special distributing tariffs to apply  to all the cities of the West which do  a jobbing business" are put into force  on a practical equality with those.now  enjoyed by Winnipeg.  Through rates from Eastern .'to  Western Canada are to be based: on  the rates from the head of the lakes.  It is estimated that this will mean, a  reduction of from 5 to 12 per cent.  Local rates on grain and flour are to  be:reduced by a direct reduction of  from 20 to 30 per cent and by a-provision that the local rate shall npit be  greater than the- furtherance rate on  grain going to the head of the lakes.  No reduction is ordered on livestock  rates, on cement rates, or on sugar  rates from Vancouver.  Effective In September  The judgment involving the new tariffs will come into effect on September  1 next. .  The judgment covers some two-hundred' Pages,, andfldeal s^with^each -*,con-.  Those changes result in substantial  reductions from the present standard  maximum scales in Saskatchewan, Alberta and British Columbia.  Special distributing tariffs on a  lower basis are advised from recognized distributing centres, the reduction from the standard tariff of each  territory being 15 per cent, of the  prairie standard scale. The following  first-class rate examples indicate the  character of the reduction,, the other  class being proportionately scaled.  The first-class rate from Winnipeg to  Regina is reduced by 8 cents, to Swift  Current by 9, Calgary 12, Revelstoke  15, Saskatoon 13, Edmonton 16 arid  'Lethbridge 10 cents per 100 pounds.  From Regina the first-class rate is  reduced to Broadview by 3, to Swift  Current 6, Medicine Hat 7, Colonsay  13, Saskatoon 6 and Wilkie 18 cents  per 100 pounds.  From Saskatoon the first-class is  reduced to Hardisty by 7, Wynward 4  and Davidson 4 cents per 100 pounds.  From Calgary to Regina 10, to MacLeod 3, Edmonton 4, Lethbridge 3,  Cardston 4 and Fernie 8 cents per  100,pounds. i -"'"  From Edmonton to Saskatoon 4, to  Camrose 6, Wetaskiwin 6, 'Calgary 4,  High River 7 and Lethbridge 9 cents  per 100 pounds. Similar reductions  are made from other prairie jobbing  centres.  From Vancouver to Ashcroft 4  cents, Kamloops 20, Revelstoke 26,  Nelson 15 andCalgary 7 cents per 100  pounds.

Examples of the new  Hospital Ball  Successful  One of the most enjoyable social  social functions ever held in the City  was the Hospital Ball on Easter Monday. The Central hall was. gaily decorated by the Ladies Auxilary of the hospital, and for. over six-hours about  seventy-five Couples danced to their  hearts content to the very good music  supplied by Prices Orchestra. Great  credit is due to the following officers  of the Auxilary for their untiring efforts in making such a time so pleasant.  President, Mrs. G..F. Ransom; vice-  president, Mrs. F. Gay; secretary, Mrs.  P. Boyd, and treasurer Mrs.: A. W.  Strictland. Among' the many people  noticed were Mesdames Phillips, Marshall, Barwick, Welfare, Patterson,  Collett, Bryden, Mr. and Mrs. J. P.  Boyd, Grimmett, Blair Reid, Kennedy,  Strachan, Darknell, Boothroyd; Devonshire, Keown, and Gay. The Misses  McPherson, Seaton, Tripp, and Sherwood, Messrs Costigan, Daniel, Gem-  inell, Solomon, Grant, Collinson, Eddy;  Sutcliff and many others.  Every lady in the,city, with the interest of the Nicola Valley' General  Hospital at heart, should make a point  of attending the next meeting of the  Ladies Auxiliary which will be held in  the City hall March the 12th at .3 p.m.  After reciting the resolution of, the  Winnipeg board of trade and the application of the Vancouver board the  judgment refers to what is termed an  unfortunate misunderstanding as to  the real issue of the case, and refutes  the often repeated statements of Eastern Canada benefitting from alleged  extortionate tolls in the West and of  alleged financial sacrifices made by  Eastern Canada for railway development in the West.  The finding of the board is that  while discrimination exists between  the rates charged east and west of  Port Arthur, the discrimination is  justified under the railway act and previous decisions of the board and is  not undue or unjust.  The necessity for more railway,  ���mileage in the West is mentioned and  figures are quoted showing that 39  per cent, of the arable acreage of  Saskatchewan^i^5nt8ide^f~Oen^mTle  wagon haul to a railway and that 48  per cent, of the acreage of Alberta is  still unprovided for. Many recently  constructed branches, according to the  evidence, are unremunerative.  Three Sections  The territory west ' of the Great  Lakes" is divided into three sections.  The first is called the.prairie section,  extending from the Great Lakes to the  Mountains; the second the Pacific section, including mainland rail lines in  British Columbia, and third, the British Columbia lake section, including  the inland-navigable waters in that  province. .'���"���. -i������-  , A standard scale of maximum  freight rates is fixed for'each section.  The lowest scale in the West, now  known as the Manitoba standard, has  been, amplified to show rates up to  2000 and 100 miles and will apply  throughout the entire prairie section  and on the British Columbia lakes,  abolishing the higher scale now  charged in Saskatchewan and Alberta.  What will be known as; the Pacific  scale is on a somewhat higher basis  and  will govern in Pacific  territory.  rates from the lake terminals are  given below, those to other points being similarly scaled.  B. C. Vegetables  The special rates on fruits and vegetables frcm British. Columbia which  have been revised and reduced since  the complaint against them was  launched by the united farmers of  Alberta are left unchanged.  Lumber and joiners' work from  British Columbia to prairie destinations have been already reduced following the board's order in July, 1913.  A; table showing some of the reductions accompanies the judgment.  The rates on sugar from Vancouver  remain unchanged, the complaint of  the British Columbia sugar refinery  not being sustained.  Rates on ores, concentrates and  smelter-productsHn=andiifromiiBritish-  Columbia are found to constitute a  large percentage of the traffic of that  province and are found remunerative  only in the sense of contributing to the  general prosperity.  A review of the judgment shows  that the whole structure of western  rates, starting from the standard maximum mileage scale, the class tariffs  from Lake Superoir and Pacific Coast  terminals, the class distributing rates,  commodity "tariffs, applying on grain,  coal, livestock, cement, fruit,. vegetables, brick, sandstone, lumber, dairy  products, etc., have been closely inspected and definite decision given in  connection with each. ���  The board has considered the question of local passenger rates in British Columbia very carefully. It finds  that the local passenger business is at  present being conducted at a loss; it  therefore "_does not. feel, justified in  directing any.change until the board  is afforded an opportunity of seeing  jwhat improvement in passenger revenues will result from the improvements in; railway ; grades, and operating facilities which the railway is at  present making, ."���'-.������  For years the grout ranching industry of the West has been greatly handicapped by obsolete regulations. This  great industry wns being wiped out,  and the West is suffering in consequence of the decreased production of  horses, cattle and sheep. When the  government came into power a commission was appointed to investigate  the industry.' Insecurity of tenure of  leases was one of the greatest drawbacks to the development of the stock  industry. .After carefully revising the  recommendations of the commission,  and consulting with the best authorities on this subject, Hon. Dr. Roche,  minister of interior, drafted new regulations.  Half Section the Maximum  In future the maximum areas granted under lease to any one person will  be a half-section. No particular part  of the provinces is set aside for ranching, but the regulations apply to the  whole of the three. , Applications for  grazing leases on any land will only,  be-granted after inspection to determine : whether the land in question is  grazing or agricultural land. : Where  the farmers adjoining grazing land express their desire that this be retained  as.a commons for all to use for. their  stock, no lease will be granted. Less:  ees must fence the area they obtain  under lease. Leases will be granted  for ten years, but existing leases will  not be disturbed until their expiration  West of the Calgary-Edmonton and  Calgary-McLeod railways, what is  known as the foothill country, is now  nearly all 'under lease and in -very  large blocks. Here the lessees of these  great areas have signified their intention of giving up a part"of their graz-  ing IbBSb as soon as the farmers acquire Stock. These areas will likely  be held as commons, and will be for  the usfe of all the farmers engaged in  stock raising.  Lessees will be required to have one  head of horse or cattle or five sheep  for every thirty acres. Where the inspectors believe that the land will not  carry that amount of stock they will  fix the number they consider should  be grazed on each area. Thirty-three  per cent, of the required stock must  be placed the first year on each leased  area granted. At least twenty-five per  cent. ' of the stock must always be  breeding stock.  It is expected that under these new  provisions the West will again take  its place as one of the great stock-  raising countries of the world. The  development of this-industry will add  to the prosperity and permanency of  the We8tern settler. The farmer who  wishes grazing privileges is protected,  the agriculturist _has_still_access_to all  arable land, and the rancher is given a  permanency of tenure  that  will  en-  Want Post Office  Building Started  Council of Board of Trade Transacts Important Business-  Separate Train Service  courage him to develop his industry.

Martin Burrell moved  the second reading of the bill to regulate the manufacture and sale of dairy,  products and to prohibit the manufacture or sale of butter substitutes. The  Minister said that 'dishonest dealers,  particularly in Montreal were making  "process " renovated butter-that had  as much as 40 per cent of water in it,  but,.;because the present act required  proof that acid was used to put this  water in the butter, convictions had  been refused in Montreal. A fraud was  being perpetrated on the public, and  legislation wbs needed to stop it. The  bill was given its second reading and  referred to the agricultural committee,  as was also Hon. Mr. Nantel's bill to  amend the Adulteration Act by providing that only pure maple syrup maybe  so labelled.

When you write a letter, tell how  well the city is looking. It is as important as the stamp.  The council of the Merritt Board of  Trade met in (he City hall on Tuesday  afternoon to discuss several important  matters.   President H.   S. Cleasby occupied the chair, and called on secretary  Wulker  to  read    a  letter "from  Heatons Ltd Toionto,  with  reference  to booklets oidered by   the old  Board,  to the effect  ihat  1,000 booklets had  been printed, 700  of which  had  been  sent to the C. P. R. for distributing and  the balance sent to the secretary. With  the letter was an account for $140.76.  The members of  the  council   thought  that this advertising was the best way  to get at people at a distance,   and  on  motion of Messrs Strictland  and Ward  the secretary was requested  to write  Heatons Ltd, that the old  board was  defunct, and  that  the  present board  was under the process of reorganization. ^ In about 30 or 40 days the Board  .would be able to give  them every consideration.  ,The Standard of the Empire wrote  offering to insert in their paper which  is published in London Eng. any item  of interest with reference to the city  free of charge. The paper also sent  their advertising rate card, and asked  an advertisement from the Board. It  was decided lo ask the secretary to  send hews items to the paper, and  write the:Standard of the Empire that  the advertising may come later."  Mr. Strictland brought to the attention of the council, the fact that nothing yet had been done on the new federal building, which will house the  post office department etc. The secretary was requested to write * Hon Martin Burrell to hurry the matter along.  Another important matter on > which  the action of the. Board,of Trade'*was  thoughfr.advi^rSS^i'-h^^  the C.P.R, asking that they "have different trains for the passengers' and  freight service between 'Spencers  Bridge and this city. Mr. Walker was  requested to attend to this.  As the drill hall for the B. C. Horse  had not yet been started, the Minister  of(Militia Col. Sam Hughes will be  asked when-this building will be "started. The council also discussed the  question of watering the streets, during the summer months and Mayor  Jackson and Aid. McGoran stated that  they would bring this to the attention  of the City Council on Monday evening  The following members were present:  President, H. S. Cleasby. Secretary  Walker and Messrs Jackson, Strict-  land, Rogers, Ward, Reid, Cranna and  McGoran. -  To Celebrate  Empire Day  A meeting of. the citizens of the City  was called to discuss the Empire Day  celebrations on Thursday evening of  last week. Mayor A. Jackson occupied,  the chair, and A. E. Howse was appointed secrenary. Owing to the 24th  coming on Sunday it was decided to  hold the holiday on Monday theMfith.  On account of the small attendamsethe  meeting decided that no committees  should be appointed that evening and  the meeting stood adjourned till Tuesday evening. When the meeting came  to order on that date the following  committees were appointed : Finance-  Sup t. of each mine and Messrs. Armstrong and Rogers ;. baseball and- lacrosse���Messrs. Gay, Gissing and Gill-  ispie; horse racing���Messrs. Armstrong,  Laws and Cameron ; football���Messrs.  Ovington, Fairley and A. N. Other ;  program���Messrs. Bunt and' Phillips;  grounds���one from each committee with  power to,add/.  We are given to understand that Mr.  Malcolm McKenzie secretary-treasurer,  'of the 1913 sports committee, left a  balance of $55,95 in the local bank.  This amount,*it is presumed, will be  available forthe 1914 celebrations. ���  There seems to be a little misunderstanding with some of the residents of  the city as to the celebrations. The  visit of the Militia camp has nothing  whatever to-do with the citizens avents  on the 25th May. The money collected  by the finance committee appointed on  Tuesday evening will not go towards  the entertainment of the militia, but  wholly for the enjoyment of the people  of Merritt. ; No doubt, there could be  some events thrown open to the "soldier  boys", but the majority would be strictly for the local boys to fight out between themselves���(Ed.) 2  THE NICOLA VALLEY NEWS.

EIGHT HOUil DAY FOX CITY EMPLOYEES  The action of the City Coiindl ;1 their lust ine_tiii_- in establishing an eight hour day for city v.x-l-men is one of the best acts of  municipal legislature enacted by the present regime. The day has  now passed when men worked long hours for a mere pittance, and,  by their actions in the future the eity employees should see to.it  that the present Council or those that are to follow have no cause  to regret tlie unanimous vote of the City Fathers on April 6th, 1914.  # *        #  EMPIRE DAY  As May 24th -falls on a Sunday, no doubt the Empire Day celebrations will be held on Monday, the 25th. Wherever Britishers  live, the day will be one of great rejoicing, and the Union Jack will  be honored. North, East, South or West, the grand old Flag will  wave proudly as the emblem of the greatest nation the world lias  ever known, and on which the sun never sets. The citizens of Merritt will join with co'untless thousands in praying that the British  Empire may long continue to use its wonderful powers to the  furtherance of peace and justice to all men, and in honoring the  memory of Victoria the Good. ���  # - #       #  PREJUDICE.  Easy to create, it is hard to destroy. Sinister of wit, it is weak  of wisdom. Its perceptions are false. It sees in darkness; it is blind  in the light. It nutures lies and reje&ts truth. Breeding hatred, it  blasts sympathy. It rules those who give it life. - It is conjured  Frankenstein, dominating millions of men. It sits beside the gates  of life and takes toll of all 'that pass.  It is tlie conservator of all that reason would destroy, the destroyer of the works of justice. It is the hand-maiden of error, the  Nemesis of knowledge.' It feeds fear and poisons hope. It lives  by the law of the dead. It thrives upon the meat of yesterday. It  sickens on the sustenance of .today.  It is tbe anarchist of the heart. It smohers faith. It gives love-  to the torch. It bemeans benevolence and shuns communion. It  stills the sound of- music and palsies the hand of art. It betrays  belief and sets suspicion on a throne. It rejoices in tears. Its mirth  is in misery.  It is the monster of the mind. It pollutes thought, serves despair and ravishes-right. It offends against fact and is a stranger  to logic. Its soothing is in sophistry. It divines the unreal and  walks in the way of phantoms. It drains the potions brewed by  witches of the brain.   It is a thing of charms and amulets.  It  is Prejudice!���Ex. '- <.  A QUIET EASTER  The Easter Holidays passed off  very quietly in the City and district. At each church special  services were held on Easter  Sunday and the various, pastors  dwelt on the prevailing subject,  "The Resurrection."  On Good Friday afternoon baseball fans attended in force at  Voght Park to witness the first  game of ball of the season, when  " the fat and heavy ones " met  " the lean and hungry ones."

On Monday evening next the  City Council will hold its regular  meeting at 8. p.m., when several  important matters will come up  for consideration, among them  being the report of the police  commission, with reference to the  night watchman,and the acceptance of the assessment roll. Undoubtedly the question of the  continuance of the "chain gang"  will also be on the tapis. All  these matters were laid over at  the last meeting.

The  "News"  Sports Column  At the usual meeting of the  >.V.F.A held on Saturday a  motion was put through on the  minutes rescinding a resolution  passed a few weeks ago, wit-h  referer\c*e to the referees. The  CoalhilT representatives wanted  one man to rule the roost, as  far as refereeing games in the  v Gay " shield competition was  concerned, and succeeded in passing the following motion, "that  one referee be appointed by the  association to referee all games."  The motion was declared carried.  : On Sunday next .Coalhill will  meet Merritt on Diamond Vale  grounds at 2.30 p.m. with referee CMngton in charge. On the  following Sunday at the same  grounds the "Cubs" will endeavour to beat the Hubs with  referee Fairley in charge.  The moving picture machine  of Mr. Commons Theatre is now  on view in the windows of the  Merritt Hardware and Sporting  Goods Co. on Quilchena ave.  The writer was very fortunate  to see, while on a visit to the  coast, the final of the Mainland  Cup between Coquitlam and Kit-  islano. These teams met the previous Saturdav and after fighting for 2 hours the match ended  in a draw. On Saturday last the  teams=wer<rordered^toHight-=to  the finish, and after battling for  3 hours Coquitlam scored the  winning goal 10 seconds before  time, We should be pleased to  hear if any of our readers have  ever seen or heard of a football  game extending over such a  period.  In,a very well contested game  between Diamond Vale Rangers  and the Zig Zags, in the Darknell cup series ended in a' draw  both sides scoring once. At this  time the Rangers head the table  with a lead of two points.  The action of the Football association at their meeting held  on Mondav, in doing away with  the old system of refereeing does  not commend itself to a great  number of supporters of the  game. If the new. idea is put  into force, it will mean that one  man will practically have the  control of the game in his own  hands. Wherever association  football is played, never has it  boen known where one man is  appointed to referee all the games  in a competition, and it is a great  pity that their are one or two  mien, who consider that they  know more about the game they  the authorities in the Oid Country, who have never yet suggest-  edsthe advisibi ity of one man  dominating a league or cup competition. At the next meeting  this question wi'l undoubtedly  come up for consideration again.  ________w*gas-*ww yiSrVMtifmvsa^mvJiemm^mtBmjm^  BANK  OF  MONTREAL  J   Established 1817 ���[  $16,000,000.00  16,000,000,00  1,046,217,80  242,263,219.60  Capital   Paid   Up  Rest      ...        ...

Ask us how we'd  buy Lumber and see  if we don't put a new as-  pecton this high cost talk.  Sure, some lumber is high  priced, but in building a  "house^you^don't^-have^to  specify "'clear" throughout.  There's more than one  grade of lumber and there's  many kinds of wood., All  you need to insure you full  value for your money is a  suggestion here and there  from some one who knows  lumber. We believe we can  qualify in that respect.  We've been handling lumber for a good] many years  and have watched its wearing qualities under different  conditions. Most all lumber  is everlasting when properly used and cared for, biit  right there is where ��� you  need discriminating judgment. If you're^.figuring  close to get the biggest  value for your money we'd  like to talk over this question of lumber with you.  Come in.

A four year old cow  gave in one month 920 pounds of  Ynilk"cbhtaining"35 pounds of fatr  In the same herd a five year old  gave only 330 pounds of milk  and .19 pounds of fat.  This further fact is interesting,  this particular cow was sold by  a man absolutely ignorant of her  value of dairy capacity. The  present owner, through keeping  individual records, knows here  better and would not sell her for  less than thirty dollars more than  he paid for her.  Another fact is worth careful  attention: the total of the herd  yield for a day or a month will  never reveal these good individuals. What the owner needs to  know for certain is obtained only  from a record of each cow he  keeps. .You can save labor at d  good feed by bestowing them on  cows that you know are worth  keeping; vou will then be in a  position to keep your best cows,  and will not lose money by selling good cows' cheap.    .
