Easter Sunday was a day of sun
shine and promise, but through
force of habit it was followed by
rain. Every fair day is now being
utilized in the hop yards, and
should the rains continue much
longer the demand for labor, when
fair weather does come, will be far
greater than the supply. G.
Muecke, weather observer at Aurora
writes: "Last year we had all our
preparatory work done in our hop
yards by March 10th. This year
we have not been able to get into
our yards yet. Last year, which
was not even a favorable one, near
ly all spring grain was sown into
plowed and harrowed land. This

get into the same land with our

A Great Sensation.
There was a big sensation in Lees
vi'.le, Ind., when W. H. Brown ol that
place, who was expected to die. had
his life saved by Dr. King's New Dis
covery for consumption. He writes: "I
endured insufferable agonies from
Asthma, but your New Discovery gave
me immediate relief and soon thereafter
effected a complete care." Similar
cures of comsumption, pneumonia,
Bronchitis and grip are numerous. It's
the peerless remedy for all throat and
lung troubles. Price 50c, and f 1.00

The services at this church wire
of more than ordinary iolerwl.
The ladies on Saturday decorated
the church with beautiful (lower
and lovely vines so that it looked
like a veritable garden. On Sab
bath moniintr a lri;e S.ibbath
school gathered to enjoy the Kaster
lesson, after which the Supt., W.G.
Shannon, gave to each one present
a finely decorated Easter egg. Tiie
Easier church services both mora
ing and evening weie very largely
attended and the music arranged
and conducted by Mrs. May Bab
bit with her excellent choir was
very appropriate and charming.
The accompanying of the cello by
Mis llvwdeii and the violins by
Louis, Josse ami Td Cooper wai
an attractive feature of the music.
In the luornititf lr. Thompson fit
tingly and tenderly spoke for a few
minutes on the theme, "What
Jesus Saw from the Cross." Then
followed the Communion service at
which thete were ninety Coiiununi
catts. Fifteen names were added
to the church roil at this time. TJie
service was specially impressive
and solemn. In the evening there
was an Easter praie service. Pr.
Thompson spofee very forcibly on
the proofs of the resurrection and
the choir filled the church with
most delightful music. The an
thems and hymns were eminently
adapted to the occasion. Tiie day
was one long to be remembered by
the members of the churcn and
congregation and a long step for
ward was taken in the progress ot
Calvarv Presbyterian church. In

Canada's Grtat "Hallway Project.
The agreement entered into a few
days ago between the Canadian govern
ment and the Grand Trunk Railway
company for the building aud operation
of a transcontinental line inaugurates
one of the most gigantic and Important
single railway projects In history. The
proposed line to be built and operated
In conjunction with existing Grand
Trunk lines will extend from North
Bay or Gravenhurst, Ont., on the At
lantic, to either Butte Inlet or Port
Simpson, on the Pacific ocean, a dis
tance of 3,025 miles, which will be sev
eral hundred miles shorter than any
other transcontinental route.
Besides having the shortest route
from Liverpool, from the large centers
of Canada, from New York and the
manufacturing centers of the east and
practically an equal route from Chica
go and the middle west to the orient
the company will have the lowest
grade mountain line on the continent
and over 7,200 miles of continuous rail
way, with steamship connections, over
which rates can be made to every part
of the world without consultation with
friendly or unfriendly connections. The
New England states are reached by the
Central Vermont of the Grand Trunk
system and the gateways of Chicago.
Detroit and Port Huron by the Grand
Trunk Western, both roads making
short connections with the proposed
transcontinental railway. Some of the
distances are significant For exam
ple, from New York to Yokohama by
the way of Montreal and the new line
will be 418 miles shorter than by the
Canadian Pacific, 555 miles shorter
than by Chicago and San Francisco
and 1,800 miles shorter than by Gal
veston and San Francisco. From Liv
erpool to Yokohama by the way of
Quebec and the new route will be 528
miles shorter than by the Canadian Pa
cific, 1,313 miles shorter than by New
York and San Francisco.
One of the most important facts in
connection with the project is the ex
istence of approximately 500,000,000
acres of fertile and unoccupied land In
northwest Canada, which will be trav
ersed by the new line. Of the 15,400,
000 acres of occupied land there only
1 0,000,000 acres are under cultivation.
and they produced 60,000,000 bushels
of wheat In 1902. It Is estimated that
the unoccupied lands are capable of a
wheat production amounting to be
tween 2,600,000,000 and 8,000.000,000
bushels, or five times greater than the
total United States crop of 1000. The
bnlldlng of the Grand Trunk Pacific
presages an era of growth In the north
west which cannot fail to be of im
