DYKING OF RUM AH LAKE
PROCEEDING WITH IHSIWTt'II
Dyking of Sumas Lake, a project
of considerable interest to the Lyn
den district, is proceeding speedily,
acording to the following article
from the Sumas News-Advocate:
At a meeting in ChllllWack on last
Monday afternoon, Hon. E. 1). Bar
row, minister of agriculture, made a
statement of the progress being mad -1
on the Sumas dyking project, refut-
the statement contained in an ar
tide appearing in a recent issue of
a Vancouver paper.
Mr. Barrow stated that the present
contractors are retained under reor- 1
ganization arrangement and under di- j
rect control of the government, and
that the work will be carried out ex- |
pediciously and in accordance with
the schedule, which will bar the 1922
waters without reasonable doubt,
anything to the contrary notwith
The big suction dtedge, which is

of the project, and the Important

All of the other five machines will
be employed simultaneously carry

Electric dredges three and four are

of the suction dredge to top off and
finish that work.
The engineers in charge are said
to be experienced men — having
handled some of the largest projects
in the south similar to this and just

similar machinery. Mr. Barrow's
statement indicated a very flattering

HOW SHE CAPTURED GEORGE
Proving That There Are More Waya
Than One of Bringing a Dila
tory Swain to Time.
"If you were going to propose to
a girl," she said, "how would you
go about It?"
"I haven't given
the matter much
thought," he re
plied, "but I am
inclined to think
I would get down
on one knee, like
"And I would
tuke her hand, like this."
"And then I would say: 'Darling,
will you be mine?'"
"Oh, George," she exclaimed, "this
is so sudden, but—but—ye!., ; will."
And all the way home he kept won
dering how it happened, and whether
he was quite as smart as he some
times thought he was.
Letting the Club Do the Work.
The secret of the golf stroke is in
letting the club do the work. We have
watched many golfers, some of them
champion buck passers. They have
been letting other fellows do their
work for years; whenever there has
been anything to do so far as they
were concerned, someone else could
attend to It. But out on the golf
course they are different. Then they
pe)Mlst in trying to do, themselves, the
work which the particular club in
hand was designed to do. In other
words, the only time they should let
something else do the work they
stubbornly refuse, thinking they
themselves can do it better. It is
strange but It Is hard to get Into the
average golfer's bend that if the Lord
had Intended his shoulders to loft a
ball Into the air He'd have shaped
them like a maahie. — Detroit Free

"Where's the defendant?" asked
"I'm the plaintiff," said the Celt.
"Then why do you answer 'Ready

Talcum Powder Ki!led_ Baby.
The ten-months-old daughter of a
Mlddletown (N. V.) couple is dead
from tr.»?Um powder in her throat.
While at the home of her grand
mother, at Roxbury, the child filled
Its mouth with talcum powder from
a box she was playing with. Some
of the powder lodged in her bronchial
tubes, and. owing to a slight throat
trouble with which she suffered, the
Irritation caused by the powder could
not be overcome.
Calf Queerly Misformed.
A calf was born in Nova Scotia
recently with Its eyeballs side by side,
having no skin between them. A short
tail, about two Inches long, growing
out of the middle of the forehead,
hung down over the eyes. For the
upper Jaw It had only skin hanging
down to Its lower jaw. The nostrils
were missing and the ears were round.
The calf lived only a short time.
NECESSITY VS. LAW
"Necessity knows no law."
"He'd be right at home among the
practitioners in my court," said the
Baby's Arms of Peculiar Formation.
A baby near Canaan, N. B„ was
born with elbows where Its wrists
should have been. They were exact
ly the same as ordinary elbows. The
number of fingers was all right, but
they were partly Without bone, being
• inly joined to the hands by the flesh.
Some had only a little piece of boM
in the end as fur as the first joint.
