OF GENERAL INTEREST
. Due to the success of bis weekly auction sales at Langley Prairie, Mr. A. A.
Lundy has enlarged hie field of operations. Last Saturday he held his first
regular auction at Aldergrove and it
proved a- big success. Cows averaged
$100 and horses $155 each. These auction' sales should appeal to all as being
beneficial to those'wishing to either buy
or sell. Particulars of dates, etc., will
be seen in these columns from time to
time.
In view of the expected tourist and
travelling business that is sure to
come to Langley Prairie this summer,
Mr. E. J. Timms is erecting an icecream
parlor here. Tho plans call for an up-
to-date establishment with every accommodation necessary to the comfort and
enjoyment of patrons. The dining hall
of the Theatre will be utilized, as will
the space between the drug store and
Mr. DesBriBay's store. One of Mr.
Timrus' specialties will be catering to
large parties, who will find lots of room
for dancing if they should so wish. This
■new venture should prove a boon to the
.travelling public this summer.
The religious services which are being
conducted by Rev. J. W. Wright, assisted by the "Converted Cowboy,"
Rev. R. J. Kennedy, Mrs. Kennedy and
Mrs. Gardiner, in the Sunday School
building, are proving a great success.
.The Rev. Mr. Wright is a forceful and
convincing speaker, and Mr. Kennedy
possesses a rich full toned baritone voice,
which makes his song messages very appealing, Mrs. Gardiner presides, at the
piano in a most acceptable manner. She
ip a brilliant performer. These services
will be continued throughout April,
and no matter what anyone's belief is,
they shouldn't miss attending.

Buy in B. C.
The "statement" appearing in last
'week's issue showing the. amount of
purchases made in Uncle Sam's country, has called forth various opinions
in this district. While some agree that
too much money annually leaves this
country, there are others who say that
there are many good reasons why our
good money finds its way across the
line. Should «ny of The Sentinel readers feel like expressing their views on
this subject we would be only too pleased to receive such in the form of corres-
•ppndence. Three things are important
whan sending in letters for publication:
make them short and strictly to the
point; write, on one side only; give
name and address of the writer; the
latter as an evidence of good faith and
not necessarily for publication. Now go
to it.
TO OUR HEROIC DEAD
Memorial day in honor of, those who
went from Langley to uphold their
country's honor at the front and lost
their lives in so doing, will be 'held tomorrow with appropriate services. At
10 a. m. the ceremony will be performed
lads who so unselfishly gave up their
lives that the iron fist of the German
war lord should not rest heavily on this
fair land. They bled and died that we
might still live and enjoy that freedom
which the good,old Union Jack standi

-   Value of B. C. Pulp Wood.
The great part British Columbia is
taking and the important position it
will assume iu the near future, in regard to the world's supply of pulp and
paper, is revealed in the figures showing

year in Canada. This province is known
to contain the largest resources of pulp-
wood in the world. Last year the output of this industry in Canada was $163,-
000,000, and if pnlpwood extracts are
added the total would be $178,000,000,
as compared with $107,000,000 for-1919.

A mass meeting  of ratepayers
was held in the Municipal Hall on
Saturday evening to discuss the
situation arising from the defeat of
the recent school by-law. The chair
was occupied by Mr. W. Hugh and
Rev. Mr. Horton acted   as  secretary.   Mr. Joseph Wheeler, opened
the meeting with a resolution asking the Municipal Council to find
$27,700 for a four-room High School
and some other ten rooms in various parts of the municipality.   He
also advocated the appointment of
a civic committee to meet the Minister of Education.   He stated that
in his opinion the recent by-law
had not been advertised sufficiently to make it most effective. Reeve
MacKenzie and Colin. Brown both
argued that the Council had done
its duty in the   matter, pointing
out that it was the duty of  the
School Board to hold meetings and
educate the public on school matters.  School Trustee McBride gave
his opinion that hard times   had
played its part in defeating the bylaw, and thought the Government
should be appealed to for  assistance.   Finally the following corn-
mi ttse was appointod to meet the
Minister of Education:     Messrs.
Hugh,   Porter,    Vidal,   Downey,
Hardy and Boothroyd.
On Saturday evening a most enjoyable time was spent at local I.

NOTES AND COMMENTS.
*   *   *
If the Langley Board of Trade,
recently formed under such auspicious circumstances, intends to
live up to expectations, the officials
will have to show more progres-
siveness. The idea of having the
ball set in motion with a banquet
is all right, but why set the date so
far ahead as May 31st? The summer will be over and the harvest
ended before anything is done, if
care is not taken.    Periculum in
mora.
*    *
The Province of Ontario this
week, by a majority of 200,000, decided to go bone dry. In the large
cities the wets had the best of it,
but the rural districts more than
counterbalanced this. Quebec and
British Columbia now have the
distinction of being the only two
provinces in the Dominion where
booze can be legally purchased,
under a moderation system. It
will furnish a go d opportunity to
test the merits of the two systems.
Horse breeding clubs are being
formed in British Columbia under
the Dominion scheme of assisting
the breeding of draft horses. The
Federal Government propose giving a grant of $500 to assist the
scheme in the Fraser Valley. This
looks as though that most faithful
friend of man—the horse—is still
appreciated. May he always find
a place in the hearts of man and a
day's work to do, and be rewarded
with affection and care. >

British Columbia is a fruit raising country, yet last year foreign
imports show that 4,138,704 pounds
of apples, valued at $136,656, were
brought to the province. The previous year the total was 1,005,400
pounds, valued at $45,366. Other
tree fruits brought into the province in 1920 weighed 3,134,903
ponnds—being a decrease of a
million pounds over 1919. We imported 6,307,982 pounds of canned
fruits in 1920 as against 2,679,751
pounds in 1919.

Professor Smith, of Toronto, is
the author of an interesting volume
touching immigration and the
alarming loss of our population
through the death of infants. From
1912 to 1917 in Ontario 105.4
babies out of every i,000 born every
year died before they were twelve
months old. He says those figures
are probably true of Canada as a
'whole. It has been estimated that
forty-five out of every 1,000 men
enrolled in the Canadian army
met death in the war. It is therefore more than twice as dangerous
to be born in Canada as to fight
"the German in the trenches. This
'slaughter of the innocents, according to Professor Smith, goes on
from year to year. The race is
being bled white by the loss of
babies. He suggests that the people seek in a scientific way the
conservation of child life. Maybe
if there was less of the "scientific"
and more of the common sense way
used in raising babies, better results would be obtained.

'Westminster Market Prices, i,
NEW WESTMINSTER, April 22.—
Bill Cooper, of Aldergrove, scored over
a Chinaman at the market to-day. Such
a rare occurrence deserves recording.
Bill had a crate of Leghorn broilers,
and dickered with the Chink, finally
agreeing on 32c per lb. for the lot. The
Chink did the weighing, and made it
110 pounds. Then Mr. Love, a well
known buyer of poultry, took a hand ia
the little game. The Chinaman was
taken outside to look at another cheap
lot, and Mr. Love, and Bill weighed the
baoiles again, with, the result that a
shortage of 58 pounds on the Chinaman's figures was discovered. Then
Mr. Love offered a higher price for the
broilers in the hearing of the Chinaman, who was forced to bid still higher,
knowing his sharp practice would be
discovered if another buyer weighed the
broilers. Finally Bill got 45u per pound
from the Chink, over $33 more than the
original price.
There was a better demand for potatoes, especially for seed. Eggs advanced
to 32c wholesale; pork dropped a couple
of cents to 20c per pound for best, and -
veal, was down almost 2c per lb all
round; roosters sold at 15c to 16c per
lb live weight, and broilers all the way
\Tom 35c for Leghorns to 55c for a choice
1 ot of Rhode Inland Reds. Hens were
unchanged, with a falling off in demand
if anything.
The following prices ruled:
Vegetables-Potatoes $10 to $15 per ton and
75o to $1 per saok. Cabbago $3.10 to $4 per 100
pounds. Turnips 60c to 70o per saok. Onions.

CORRESPONDENCE.
We do not hold ourselves respouslble for opinions expressed under this head-
Buy in Cloverdale.
. Editor Sentinel—Sir: I would
like to make use of your valuable
space to ask the people of Clover-*
dale why it is they do so much of
of their buying away from home,
when they can do just as well by
patronizing the home merchant?
It is this lack of co-operation by
our citizens generally which is
chasing prosperity from our doors,
and keeping Cloverdale at a stand.
Again, our citizens are wont to belittle the town at home and abroad.
This is not the attitude that makes
for progress. Cloverdale has the
makings of a real live town if her
people would make up and unite
to work for the general weal of the
community.
Trusting this may start them
thinking and acting in the right
direction, I am      A BOOSTER
lor our home town.

Houses Wanted.
The town of Langley Prairie is right
now suffering for the want of suitable
housing accommodation, and if men
with families are expected to move in
and make their homes here something
has got to be done to remedy this situation, There are property owners who
who have the necessary money to un-'
dertake this work with every assurance
of profitable returns.. What is wanted
is modest homes with modern conveniences.
This is something the Board of Trade
might get busy on.

"Human Desire"
Anita Stewart in "Human
Desire," which will be shown
at the Langley Theatre, Saturday, April 30, and at the
Cloverdale Opera House, on
Thursday, April 28, has the
part of an Italian girl in a convent who daily brings lilies to
lay in the arms of the Fram-
pinii Madonna, wondering if
there are real babies in the big
world outside. How she
escapes to find out, and, besides babies, finds an American lover, is told in this picture. Robert Bruce, who has
won his way high in American
art circles, is married to a
cold and unsympathetic wife.
* No matter whlit work he does
or what new honors come to
him, she is not appreciative.
They have nq children, and
the wife wants none, as she
thinks they are too much bother. So, with none in his
family to show the little attentions which his sensitive
artist's soul craves. Bruce is
unhappy.
Things reach a pass where
he and his wife feel that they
- cannot go on living together,
and the wife decides that she
will take a trip to Italy so that
she may think over a permanent separation. Fate dictates
that this move shall bring her
husband in the end happiness,
and that ehe shall be the instrument used. In Italy she
visits the convent and meets
the little Italian girl, to whom
she tells wonderful tales of
America and its countless and
needy babies.     This so im-
f>resses the little girl who *so
oves babies that she escapes
from the convent and sets out
for America. How she gets
there and all the rest is told
in the picture.    See it.
The "Devil" is coming.

Brudder Johnston, an evangelist
of color, was caught hugging the
soprano behind the church-door.
He was brought up for trial,
charged with immoral conduct.
The case was proved.
" You have seen dese great pictures,
I s'pose, so you know dat de great
Sheperd am always pictured with a
lamb in His arms," 6aid Brudder
Johnston, in extenuation.
u Yes, sah, Pahson ; dat am so,"
admitted Deacon Jones.
" Den, Brudder, what am wrong
in de sheperd of his flock having a
lamb in his arms ? "
This was too much for Brudder
Jones, s© he proposed that the
people have a call-meeting that
afternoon.
After the point was discussed at
the afternoon meeting, the following resolution was adopted:
" Resolved, Dat for the future
peace of dis yere congregation, dat
the next time Brudder Johnsing
feels called upon to take a lamb of
of de flock in his arms, dat he pick
a ram lamb."
Counsel (trying to prove tempor
ary  insanity):      "Was   it  the
