FOHT GEORGE FALL FAIR
CANCELLED
Word was received this week
from New Westmister to the
effect that the Annual Fair to be
held there this month had been
discontinued on account of the
war situation.
It has also been decided by the
managers of the Dominion Fair
of Canada which was to be held
at Victoria Sept. 21 to 26 to cancel their exhibition.
Acting on this the FortGeorge
Association insert a notice in this
issue of the Herald of the can-
cellation of the Fail Fair and Exhibit to be held this month at
fi mi George. The friends and
exhibitors of the district will experience a keen disappointment
in Ihis decision as the annual
fair has grown to be a fixed date
l'< which we have all looked forward marking as it does a visual
testimony of the advancement in
agricultural pursuits of our section of the country. But the de-
cision seems a wise one at this
time, T h e managers deserve
much credit, for their work however and it is to be hoped that
n,x| year a greater and better
display will prove to the outside
world the splendid results to be
attained from the soil of our
northern interior of British Columbia..
Munro is a big fellow and looks i„        ,,   ... _,        ,     ,

trac^ 'the Honorable Minister of Lands.
 ,._ i This week v-p had an QJJJlflEt)->ity
to meet again our old friend
Thomas Taylor the Honorable
Minister of Public Works, affectionately known among us as
"Good Roads Taylor."
When a minister of the province is greeted affectionately as
"Hello Tom" you can depend
upon it. he is in the hearts of the
boys. And so it was this week.
The Honorable Minister paid a
visit to McBride while here, and
we kr.ow the trip will not be
without its good results, to the
whole section.
One of the great drawbacks
to the ministers has been the
difficulty of getting in ancl out of
the country for lack of transportation and the long absence of the
Ministers from their duties in
Victoria, and then it has been a
journey oi oread to all. But now
that transportation is available
wo are sure to see more of them
and be letter understood, and
what is more to the point we
will better understand our ministers,
John A. Fraser M.P.P.. accompanied the minister through
the territory.

SPECIAL MEETING HELD
A special meeting of the Executive Board of the Prince
George Chamber of Commerce
was held Monday night and the
subject of lire protection gone
into very thoroughly.
Mr. Gillette having to make a
business trip lo the coast was
asked to take the matter up with
the Government authorities and
see if a loan by the government
could not be made available prior
to incorporation for the installation of a fire main at least
through the centre of tho town
and most thickly built up section.
A resolution appropriate to the
subject was passed and sent to
the coast by Mr. Gillette.

LACROSSE GAME POSTPONED
UNTIL LABOR DAY AFTERNOON
BASEBALL
On Sunday the South Fort
George nine met defeat at the
hands of the Central team by
the score of 18 to 17. For the
first five innings the South
team had the game on ice; but
Henry blew up and then the
game became a running match
and Central being better at sliding came out of the contest one
run ahead.
The first game was an exhibition one between Central
and the Cache in which Latter
and Stone had a veritable pitchers battle the score ending 6 to 5
in favor of the Central boys.
This was probably one of the
best games played this season
and well worth while going the
distance to see.
To Central belonged the double
honors,

NINE CENTS ii POUND
FOR CANADIAN 00 GS
Nine cents a pound is the
splendid price which the Independent packers of the Puget
Sound Country paid this week
for Canadian hogs, A few months
ago the Canadian farmer didn't
even dare to dream of ever obtaining such a figure for his hogs
and he would be in that same
position today were it not for the
fact that the Uunited States
Government removed the duty on
porkers thus enabling the Canadian farmer to find a market
for his stock among the Independent packers of Seattle and
vicinity. Until the United States
government removed the duty
the Canadian hog raiser was absolutely at the mercy of the
Canadian Meat Trust and the
best he couid hope to get for his
stock was five or six cents a
pound. The fact that he can
obtain such fancy figures as
eight and nine cents encouraged
the Canadian hog growers to
enter the business on a more extended scale and reports from
Canada are to the effect that the
farmers on this side are now
going into the hog raising business on an enormous scale,
Owing to the Steamer Conveyor being taken off of the lower River run. 'lhe Quesnel Lacrosse team will come up on B.
X. which will arrive here about
noon of Labor Day, Monday Sept.
7th. The game will start about
3 o'clock on the South Fort
George Baseball grounds. The
local boys have been practicing
faithfully and will give a good ac
count of themselves. Everyone
ought to turn out and give Canada's great national game the
boost it deserves in this country.
| The club takes this opportunity
of thanking Capt. Brown and the
B. X. manage m e n t for their
kindness in bringing the Quesnel
boys up.
In order to entertain the Ques-
jnelites a dance is being arranged
for at Burch's hall after the
Labor day concert which will be
over  at   10  o'clock.    A   good
orchestra is promised and a
general good time.
MAIL FACILITIES
At last we are to have regular
j mail over the Grand Trunk
! Pacific Railway. A telegram received from R. M. Coulter, Deputy Post Master General reads
as follows : "By authority of
the Post Master General beg to
inform you authority has been
given to place mails on the
Grand Trunk Pacific from McBride to Fort George."
The Chamber of Commerce of
Prince George and South Fort
Geooge and the Board of Trade
of Fort Gearge have been working long and earnestly on thia
and other matters pertaining to
the welfare of the district and it
is good to receive some evidence
of success for their work.
Labor Day Entertainment
Socialist Labor Meeting
On Monday evening (Labor
Day,) September 7th, the organization of 'Socialists Labor Party
of Canada' of this district, will
hold a public meeting in Burch's
Hall to which everybody is welcome. Music, reading and addresses will be given and everybody is assured of a good time
and a profitable evening.
The reading rooms formerly
located on Lasalle avenue have
been moved to 5th Avenue in
Prince George about one and a
half blocks east of George St.
Wedding Bells
Samuel Grierson and Onie
Sanders both of South Fort
George were united in marriage
on Thursday afternoon by the
Rev, A. C. Justice in the Presbyterian Church here.
Mr. Grierson was supported
by Mr. Avison and Miss Sanders
by Miss Gussie Sanders,
The bride was dressed in white
silk trimmed with shadow lace.
The happy young couple will
reside in the house of Mrs, Murray on 7th Street South Fort
George.
Sanford Wolfe who was in the
big auto accident in Vancouver,
B. C, July 17th, is improving
and expects to be out in ten
days. He will then come to
South Fort George and go into
the cigar and auto business as he
has great faith in this city.

Wednesday the first through train from

ourselves to  answer this question by a

a virgin field.
The latent possibilities of the mining industries of the Province are very great.
British Columbia's position as part of the
great Cordilleran belt has maintained its
reputation everywhere prospected so far.
This belt is recognized from South America
up into the United States and Canada as one
of the greatest mining regions of the world,
having a length in Canada of 1300 miles by
a width of 400 miles. Only a small portion
of this area has been scratched or examined.
This great portion of British Columbia is
known to be rich not only in minerals but
coal of excellent quality.

Freight Sheds, we may look for the steady
growth of this city, which will not stop until
we have become a great important industrial
centre with our name on the list of the investors of the world.
A through passenger route means a
through freight route, and that means that
the Grand Trunk Pacific will have to start
their work almost immediately, for they will
have to have a freight divisional point, and
that also means an early start to the great
growth of this city.
The through passenger will carry the investing public through here and they will
not fail to take cognizance of the wonderful
opportunities of our city. In fact instead
of being a detriment we will learn to look I
on this through passenger service as one of
the greatest boons that this city has ever
been fortunate enough to receive.

Selling at Cost
No business can be conducted on the "SELLING AT
COST" plan. Firms claiming to transact their's on these
lines are'either deceiving the public or are in business for
the sport of the thing—the latter is hardly probable.
Anyone with a grain of common sense will agree with
us when we make the statement, that in order to sell goods
a firm must bear a certain amount of expenditure such as
Insurance, Taxes. Salaries of Clerks Etc., Etc. People
engaged in the mercantile business are not mere philanthropists; they MUST get a certain amount of interest on the
capital they have invested, AND THEY DO.
So Beware of 'SALES AT COST', They Are Fakes.
The secret of selling is buying right. In this we excel
and it places us in a position to sell you the highest quality
of goods (not junk) at the lowest possible figure and still
make a LEGITIMATE PROFIT.

stay her hand eliminating and

from China.
Germany has carried matters in
the far east(China's possessions)
| with a high hand and her proposition to submit Japan's grievances to the Hague seems rub-
buish.
Germany seized Kiao-chan in
1897 without so much as by your
leave and has successfully maintained possession through no
other force than her supposed
power and fear of the world of
the war she has now Lrought

Would be of No Use to Her. -
A little city girl had been
taught to say a morning prayer
in verse, two lines of which
were:
"All through the day, I humbly pray.
Be Thou my guard and guide."
One day, when she had finished, she electrified her mother by
exclaiming; "Mamma, that's
the most foolish prayer I ever
heard. What do I want a garden guide for? We haven't any
garden."
The self-made man can seldom learn to wear a monocle
with the proper abandon,
That an improved road will increase vastly the productiveness
of the area through which it runs
has now been satisfactorily demonstrated by studies conducted
by the United States of agriculture in Virginia. Conditions in
Spotsylvania county were i n-
vestigated with particular care,
and the results have proved surprising. In 1909 the county voted $100,000 to improve 40 miles
of roads. Two years after the
completion of this work the railway took away in 12 months
from Fredericksburg, the
county seat, 71,000 tons of agricultural and forest products
hauled over the highways to
that town. Before the improvement of the roads this total
was only 49.000 tons annually;
in other words, the quantity of
the county's produce has risen
more than 45 per cent. Still
more interesting however, is the
increase shown in the quantity
of the dairy products. In 1909
theseamoun ted to 114,815
pounds in 1911 to 273,028 pounds
an increase of practically 140 per
cent in two years, In the same
time shipments of wheat have
increased 59 per cent, tobacco 31
per cent, and lumber and other
• forest products 48 per cent.
In addition to this increase in
I quantity the cost of hauling each
j ton of produce was materially reduced.   In  other   words the
j farmers not only produce more
!but produce more cheaply, for
;the cost of transportation to
| market is of jourse an import-
: ant factor in the cost of production.   From this point of view
e it is estimated that the $100,000
spent in improving the roads in
Spotsylvania county saved  the
farmers of that county $41,000 a
year.
In the past two years the traffic studies of the federal experts
show that approximately an
average of 65,000 tons of outgoing products were hauled over
the improved roads in the
county, an average distance of
eight miles, or a total of 520,000
'ton miles.' Before the roads
were improved it was estimated
that the average cost of hauling
was 20 cents a 'ton mile;' after
the improvement this fell to 12c
a 'ton mile', or a saving of 8
cents. A saving of 8 cents per
mile on 520,000 'ton miles' is
$41,000 a year. The country's
investment of $100,000, in other
words returns a dividend of 40
per cent, annually.
Because this saving, in cases
of this character, does not take
the form of cash put out directly into the farmers pocket, there
is a widespread tendency to believe that it is fictious profit,
while as a matter of fact it is
just as real a source of profi* as
an increase in the price of wheat.
In Dinwiddle county, Va., for
example, where peanuts are one
of the staple corps, the average
load for two mules on amain
road was about 1,000 pounds before the road was improved.
After its improvement the average was found to be 2,ooo pounds
and the time consumed in hauling the larger load to market
was much reduced. In other
words, one man with a wagon
and two mules could do more
than twice as much work with
the improved road than with the
unimproved road. This is the
explanation of the extraordinary
rise in the total output of agricultural products in a county
with a good road system.
from the start that this war is
not a holiday, but a fight to the
finish. Much boasting has been
written and sent out but that
kind of warfare does not win
battles.
The Prussian is a cruel, hard,
wicked fighter, and it will take
the very best of all our men to
win this war.
The strongest and best nations
as well as flower of the races are
j pitted against each other.
Let us not deceive ourselves,
[if this war is won it will be all
the more glorious because  the
i enemy is a strong, able, mighty
foe.

Resolved-That the only real
thing in life is imagination. Its
the first thing a doctor tries to
correct. More people suffer
from imagining the wrong thing
than anyone has any idea of.
But without imagination no
one can be real happy.
Imagination turns a cottage
into a palace.
Imagination or the lack of it
makes some people happy and
others miserable in the same
surroundings.
Imagination makes you what

his heart so is he.
