earth for growing seeds In pots or

last year, against 2YG,140,800 in

This announcopxertt was recently
m.-.da by the provincial minister of
lands, and it is a remarkable index
of thc rapid cxpan-^o.-i of the lumber
industry in  British Columbia.
Under a scheme inaugurated by
the Provincial Government it is announced that British Columbia will'
advance loans up to $230 a family
to settlers from the Hebrides, on
condition that the British Government advance a like amount. In
view of l!:e present depression in
the islands, it is expected that tho
British Government will co-operate.
Keen interest in all Canadian
manufacturies and especially in
mineral products, wood pulp, text- ;
ilea, leather and rubber goods, heavy |
machinery and farm machinery is
now manifested by France and Bel-
fium, according to K. 12. Tessier of
lontreal, who recently accompanied
an exhibit of these manufacturies
on a tour through every important
city in these countries. Mr. Tessier
believes that the tour will bring
great practical benefit to Canada as
soon as French currency becomes
more stable.

That Canada's culture has nothing to fear from the promised f>w
of immigration from continental
Europe was the message recently
delivered by J. Murray Gibbon,
Canadian author and litterateur, in
an address on "Canadian Literature

Mr, Water, 1'rln. of Voncouver
Technical Schooll, will on March 211
Klvo nn Illustrated lecture on "Tho
Bee."
Mrs. StcevoH, the lecturer for lho
ul'luj'iioon, delivered her address on
".School Life In Holland" to tho de-
IlKht   of  everyone   present.
Mrs. Sleeves Is a cultured and talented Hollander, nnd knows tho edu-
qitloinu system ot tho Netherlands
from A ,to Z.
The lecturer began with tho elementary schools, which have six Instead of our oight grades, same requiring so many years, I.e., the child
from 6 to 12 years of ago, So perfect Is the system of training that
Illiteracy is only 1.8 per cent.
There are three types of High
School, tho lowest being for thosewlth
no decided bent—the average child.
The second type takes up engineering and a goodly amount of matho-
mttics and science. The third type
Is Intended for the professions; and
naturally takes Latin, Greek and the
more cultural subjeots. The standard of matriculation Is very high and
usually reached at 18. Industrial
schools teach plumbing and the trades
The schools of Holland charge vory
moderate fees which may range from
10c. a month In the lower grades to
$8 or $10 a quarter In the high schools
provided however that where there
are several from the samo family allowance  is made.
There nrd no school boards, but tho
Burgomaster and Council administer
tho educational system.
When, new schools are required,
there is no appeal to the people, the
Council Just goes ahead and builds,
and should any difficulty arise the
matter Is referred to the Minister of
Education.
Their schools aro not ns ours—co-
cducationut—but throughout Holland
the boys and girls must attend separately,  to tho liking of neither.
Teachers aro well trained, all must
hold at least a lowor education certificate. Vocoinatlon and birth certificates are required l tho lnttor oven
before one is permitted to get mnr-
riod. Teachers' training extends over
two years. As a result of tho compulsory vaccination, the leoturer
pointed out there had not, for years,
boon a single case of small pox.
Corporal punishment In sohools
wns forbidden by law, and yot 'lie
dlsolpllno   is   tho  bost.
lingular attendance at school In
compulsory, allowance nlone being on
the score of Illness or sorlous troubte

Child welfare lH spoclnlly stressed,
It bel(i« held—In practice—that tho
time to train youth Is when thoy nre
Juet starting out In life.

MEETING AT HANEY TO
DISCUSS MARKET
CONDITIONS
A most interestinp and well attended meeting* was held at Haney nn
Thursday last. It v/na called to give
the local producers some hints and
suggest Jons as to how the produce
may he disposed of to the very hest
advantage both to producer and consumer. A party of ahout 13 came
from Vancouver. These included
Aid. Bennett, chairman of the market
committee; Aid. V. C. tiihbens, founder of the Vancouver Curb Market;
Aid. Garbutt* City Solicitor Williams
nnd several stall holders.
Aid. Bennett explained thnt the object of the meeting was to encourage
home production by white men, to
reduce the importation of food stuffs,
and also to give the people of Vancouver good fresh fruit, vegetables, eggs,
poultry, etc.
AM. Oibbens told how the curb
market was first started, after several appeals to the council for the
$(.,000 which was required to build
the necessary stalls, etc., and how
the market committee now felt justified for their, efforts.
Aid. Garbutt, and city solicitor J.
B. Williams gave some very startling
figures on the importation of food
stuffs from over the border nnd felt
sure that if the people of this district could bring more of their produce to the curb market it would
eliminate, to some extent, at least,
this large importation.
Mr. Stark, the curb market clerk,
gave figures also of the amount of
produce which was already sold on
the market every week and was sure
thnt more fruit and vegetables could
be disposed of. He suggested a few
of the growers should get together
and arrange for one or two people
to go in and sell the produce of others
as well as their own. He had made
inquiries and found that transportation difficulties could be easily overcome hy sending in the; produce by a
truck which carries very eheoply.
Among the producers who spoke
was Mr, Braidwood, who told how he
first went to the curb market. He
had some dressed ducks which he
packed from Yennadon to Haney and
then missed the jitney by two minutes
and tlie train by five minutes. He
waited for the next jitney which took
him to New Westminster. Then on
again he went and arrived at the
curl) market at a quarter to four.
He had packed his ducks in kit bags
but soon had them on a stall and
sold out before ll p.m. I'or Home
time he used the kit bags for tho
conveyance of his produce but now
had a small truck for the purpose,
Mr. Hunt, another stall bidder told
how he started in a very small way
less than a year ago and how be hurl
managed to support bis five children
and was now much better on" than
when ho started.
Mrs, Whltnker urged all her neighbors toglve the market a trial. With
quaint humor she told how she and
her husband hud started in a very
-minII way not long ago nnd how their
litis)nou had grown so that now thev
had their own truck to take tlie stuff
In three days a week.
Several othuii speakers spoke of
benefit*)  received,

THIS   YEAR'S   TAJ*   *
Agassis has wide plans for her 1821
Agricultural Exposition and those
plans nre being actively prepared for
execution, The start In this respect
waa made when, at the election, a
larger number of ladles were put on
tre directorate Board. This Innovn—
jtlbn—why call It such—win easily
prove   its  full  merit
Tho boys' and girls' stock-Judging
contest will be a sort of copestone
for what last y*ar displayed. Tho
youth will go on record for honors,
and yet they aro only coming to tholr
own.
The Swine Club will make Itself
felt. The year ,ts on to 'a fully
triumphant fair. Only one thing.
! Its for businessmen, citizens, lnd!on,

THE   YEAR'S  PROGRAMME
Well not to forget that we want •
Fruit Cannery. Wo want, and are going to get the Grand Hotel and Health
Resort, at the Springs; the Agassis-
Vancouver highway : a better ferry
service ; more of the trade-at-home
eplrlt, and a fully down-to-date Community Hall. Theso are our aim and
our programme. Let's one and all
"keep our eye on the squirrel" and so
fully and well co-operate that It will
be a win out because Its "each for all
and all  for each,"
IMPERATIVE    THAT    BEBSYOXOW-

Arrangements have Just been made
whereby the Mutual (Vancouver)
Limited will take care of all the
B.C. fresh fruits, or those that can
be  sold at once.
This arrangement will be of great
advantage to the growers all over th*
J'rovlnce, as It will surely stabilize
prices nnd eliminate tho factional
fights   that   must   otherwise   control.
The contractors assume all the financing lesponslbllity. Tho producer
will get a percentage of his price on
presentation  of tho bill of lading.
Mr. 0- H, Snow, tho manager (Vancouver) states there will be approximately HOo car loads of strawberries,
raspberries, and loganberries, and
thus an aggregate value of some S750-
000. So fnr so good, but what of the
vast quantity—300 or 400 tons that
is ovor ripe, ovor heated, affected by
rain,   eta T
Tho fruit ,men call for a $100,000
loan of tho Government to build a
cannery. Their demand Is a Just one.

RESPECTED PIONEER VISITS
Last week Mr. A. C. Webster, than
whom It would be difficult to flsd
one who did more for the making of
Agassiz, spent a few days In the
town, partly enjoying a rest and partly renewing old acquaintances—many
warm  welcomes awaited  him.
Mr. Webster was one of the early
merchants of Agassiz, he having gone
up there after several year*' conduct
of a large grocery In Vancouver. For
many years he was the successful
proprietor of the store now the possession of Messrs. Spencer & Stout.
Mr. Webster's greatest service was
on the School Board, where he served
with evident acceptance for nearly
two decades.
