BE ON HAND TONIGHT Tonight a start will be made to or- ganize what has long been needed, a Horticultural'Society. Its-value has olteu been discussed at greater- or less length in this column and should not need repeating: Anyone who has made even the most casual ob- servation of civic beauty will recog- nize the need of some organization to stir up and maintain a strong senti- ment in this matter. There should be a large representa- tive gathering of men and women at Oliver's hall tonight to discuss the subject. Those who have good lawns and gardens should be there to give others some of the enthusiasm they have got from the pleasure they have received from their efforts. They should be members to give others the benefit of their experience. Those who. want to improve their property should be there to get ideas and ad- ditional inspiration. Those who are interested in property values should recognize the value of such a move- ment and be there to help it along. Those who have a pride in their city and want to be prouder of it as a "city beautiful" should be present to help work out their pride. In fact, all public spirited and private-spirited citizens for the sake of the city and of--their own interests should bs on hand tonight to lend their assistance -to this laudable purpose of organizing; a Horticultural Society.-, SUN FIRE Tfie oldest Insurance Office In the world FOUNDED A.D. 1710 ELCENTENAtY I91O HOME OFFICE.

Side HIS FIXED INCOME A southern Congressman who form- erly practiced law in Mississippi tells on amusing aise he once tried in that State. He was then a student in the office of his uncle, a Colonel Martin.who figured in local politics. The main figure in the trial was a lazy darky named Dick. Sutton, ar- rested, at ihe instance of his wife, who alleged that he contributed noth- ing to her support and refused to work. During the examination of Sutton the young lawyer have you any fixed Sutton was puzzled by the term. Counsel explained that the expression, meant a certainty, money paid, not for odd jobs, but for steady employ- j ment: in other words, a compensa- I tion at stated intervals on which one could absolutely rely. j Upon the'conclusion of counsel's marks the darky's fao? brightened. j "I think T has a fixed income, j said he. i is this fixed i was the next, question. j unswercd Dick, v.-ith a broad grin in the direction of CoL j Martin, "de Colonol dere allers give j mo dollars a sack o' flour on I 'lection STOCK QUOTATIONS BERESFORD, POLITICIAN -Lord Beresford's, entry into the po- litical arent will surely mean a de- cided stir in the admiralty depart- ment. The retired admiral has been soldier, sailor and civilian but it is evidently his firm belief that .Britain must depend on her navy to maintain her supremacy among: the He. believes in large expenditure on the ijavy to increase both its size and efficiency. Though the expenditure is great and there are no direct finan- cial the security felt-be- cause- of an efficient navy has a great beneficial "influence on the trade and industry of the nation. .Lord Beres- ford with his' great popularity and his: high standing in the navy ml] appeal to the general public, the bus- inessmen and the statesmen of the .nation with.a great deal of power and -result will doubtless be a much "stronger movement toward a. greater navy than there has been.

When it is considered that the gath- ering is in-a of unlimited size and limited population it is-still more wonderful And yet in Toronto this Treek are gathered; together four thousand of Canada's most prominent laymen of all.denominations from all parts of the country to discuss the church's great problem of evangeliz- ing the- world in this generation. The Laymen's Missionary Congress is one of the tangible evidences of the great Laymen's Miaeionary movement which has been stirring the laymen of all churches in Christian natloua. Tin laymen have come to themselves with the idea that the .work of the church in -spreading the gospel and giving the heathen nations the benefits of Christian civilization is a business proposition.; that should be handled in a businesslike manner by the bus- inesmen of the church.. It is the mightiest movement in many, genera- and-no one dare prophecy what its results will be.

W. Wallace who was a fanner at Clareshohn and who accompanied one of bur excur- sipn parties arid purchased fifty acres of. land.from us last fall. He spent the winter visiting the fruit districts in the States and is now settled on his land at Burton City, Arrow Lakes. Colorado, March 11, 1909. Dear Mr! Freeman, This is a fruit country, a valley which is one solid orchard. These or- chards sell at, per "acre. .The elevation is feet above sea level. They have to irrigate and water costs per acre per year. There is no'reason why Arrow Lake lands should not bring as much in time as these lands. I- am satisfied that we can produce as as good fruit there, and without irrigation. Burton "Valley will be another Palisade if the people who are interested in land there do their part."
