RAILROAD TO RUN DAILY BERRY TRAIN – The fine red berries of the Lynden district will arrive at the market this season just twenty-four hours earlier than last year, according to arrangements completed this week with therailroad. An engine will be sent up to Lynden each night to bring down the car of berries loaded that evening in time to catch the Owl train that leaves Bellingham about 3 a. m.
HOLLAND CHORAL SOCIETY PLANS SPLENDID CONCERT – A program that will be varied enough to suit all hearers will be given Thursday evening May 4, by the Lynden Holland Choral Society at the Christian Reformed Church.

H. Waples and L. C. Wright were nearly shipwrecked Saturday night. They left Bellingham Friday night on the Whatcom, expecting to wake up in Seattle.

PARTIES TO HOLD COUNTY MEETINGS – Political parties in Whatcom County are planning their conventions to name delegates to the state meetings next month.

MISS CINDERELA IS COMING TO LYNDEN – Cinderella is coming to Lynden Thursday night, Apr. 20 when the Girls' Glee Club of the high school presents the pretty operetta “The Golden Slipper” by Anthony Schindler.

BERRY MEN MAY JOIN PUYALLUP IN MARKETING – If the express company can arrange to transport cars of Lynden berries to Bellingham the same night they are filled, it is altogether likely that local growers will combine with the Paulhamus interests in marketing fresh berries this season.

DISCUSS RAISING SPRINKLING RATES – A proposal to raise the water rents during the sprinkling season is under consideration by the city council, and will be taken up at the next meeting, April 21.

That a trunk road from Lynden to Custer will be constructed by the county this season, is not unlikely. The county commissioners are considering the matter now.

The Lynden hog weighing 717 pounds sold by E. E. Wolfe to George Waples, proved the largest that had gone through the Seattle stock-yards in recent years, and attracted considerable attention.

The Japanese have many quaint customs. Among the strangest of these is their marriage ceremony. The young people of the Methodist Missionary society will give the people of Lynden an opportunity to see this ceremony performed just as it is in Japan, on Tuesday evening, April 18.

How Henry Haveman, proprietor of the Progressive Auto Co., has managed to obtain a magic can that pours out oil in a thick stream and never needs refilling, is puzzling local citizens this week. Haveman has the can on display in his windows.

The Lynden Wholesale Egg Co. has moved to its new quarters in the Miller building. The company occupies a fine large store-room, and is equipped to handle eggs, poultry, produce and meats.

Lynden's lumber mills simply couldn't be any busier. Roo and Van Leeuwen have orders for 20 carloads, and asked the railroad for 17 cars this week.

Lynden's Dollar Week which closed Saturday proved a fine success. The stores all did a generous business the concluding day and buyers and merchants were mutually benefited by the week.

Lynden has a cartoonist of no small ability in P. Van Dalen. The young man can turn out work that has nothing of the amateur about it, and which would do credit to the big humorous magazines.
