Pamphlets to be Distributed Among Farmers
A meeting of the Fort George
Agricultural and Industrial Association was held last Wednesday in the City Hall. Routine
business was disposed of, and
several new measures adopted.
A contribution of fifty dollars was
made to the Prince George Board
of Trade to aid in the publication
of the booklet which that body
has under consideration.
Mr. Nels Jorgensen, vice-president of the association, was appointed manager for the coming
year, and a publicity committee
was appointed. The members of
this committee are: (!. C. McLeod
R. R. Walker and Nels Jorgensen

A supply of pamphlets dealing
with the exhibiting of grains and
grasses, as well as all other kinds
of exhibits, is being forwarded
by the government for distribution among local farmers, and
every effort will be made to have
the annual fair a pronounced
The association is particularly
desirous of securing information
from the farmers throughout the
district regarding the kinds of
exhibits they expect to have next
year, in order that the committee
in charge of the prize list may
know what to include in the prize
list and offer prizes for.
The Grand Trunk Pacific Railway Company will next season
make a specialty of exhibiting a
collection of the products of the
local farms, and in this way the
productivity of the soil and the
farming possibilities of this section of the province will be
brought before the notice

In America.
The fur business in America
has just started its popularity.
The men and women of America
have just begun to appreciate
furs and to wear them in a becoming manner. The man whose
business compels him to be outdoors a great part of his time,
who drives his own automobile,
knows the necessity of a fur-
lined overcoat and appreciates it.
The up-to-date man, who has
many social functions to attend,
recognizes the fact that he has to
have a fur-lined top coat. He
makes his selection according to
his means. A short time ago one
of our leading retail dealers sold
a coat lined with Russian Sable,
the buyer paying ten thousand
dollars for it.
A lady's wardrobe is not complete without furs. The lady of
fashion is obliged to have several
kinds Ermine Fur for the opera
or theatre; Silver Fox for social
functions; Skunk, Lynx or one
of many kinds of furs for ordinary use, while the autoist is
nbli .ed to use the more hardy
furs similar to Raccoon.
The Hudson Seal Coat, made
from the better grade of Muskrat
has come to stay. In many respects it is superior to the Seal.
It is cheaper, gives good service
and one-half the weight of the
Seal garment.
The future is bright for the
American trapper and if the
European war should cease .and
the markets of the world open to
our North American furs, it is no
idle dream to say that all previous high-price markets for American raw furs would be passed.
