(  TO ASSIST FARMERS  With a view of assisting the farmers  iirsolccling the best material for their  dairy herds, Mr. Henry Rive and Mi*.  V. Bjorscn are making a tour of the  agricultural districts of the Fraser  Valley. Testing station^ for the purpose of discovering the percentage of  butter fat and other qualities of each  individual animal" thus enabling the  dairymen to. select only such cattle ~s  will give tlie best results, "will be  established at different points. Two  stations at Chilliwack, one in Lajigley  and the other'in Delta, have ben selected.       v /  A competent official will be stationed at each of these testing points  and dairyman desirous of acquiring  statistics "as to the performance of any  animal may bring same there for his  information. Animals not reaching the  required standardrmay th\is be eliminated from the herd.  Mr. Rive is a provincial dairy inspector, while Mr. Bjorsen is a member of the animal health department  at Ottawa at present investigating the  records of pure bred dairy stock in  the -Fraser.-Valley,, dis.trict  .  Register your vote to-day.  It is reported that salt has been discovered 46 milesjfrom Prince Rupert:  H. N. Springer' and R. i.

In nearly all  cases the growing industries in these  localities do away with the old-time  steam method and adopt electric appliances to drive their various machines.   . ���������  As an instance, of this the Western  Canada Power -Company, whose large  electric plant is -'situated at Stave  Falls on the north bank of the Fraser  River, and who supply nearly the  whole Fraser- Valley ' with light and  power are opening up a sub-station at  Kilgard. From this new station light  will be supplied to this rapidly growing community, as well ' as motive  power for the Kilgard brick works.  The s'cation-'ls" built' on the"'same  lines as the Company's various substations throughout ��������� the Valley, being  of metal sheating with a concrete  floor.  The building at Kilgard is already  completed, with,all the machinery on  the. spot - ready for installation.' On  Wednesday last a number of employes  from the central station at Mission  City with their camp equipment and  other paraphernalia passed through  Abbotsford on,.their way >to put the  'finishing touches to the work and in  the course of a few weeks the juice  will be turned on.  The same company which supply  Abbotsford with light'and power have-  their men busily engaged remodelling the present office here, and in the  course of a few day's a number of new  transformers will be installed to take  the place of the present ones.^which  are becoming inadequate to the increased demand for more light and  power.  GONE,  BUT   NOT  FORGOTEN.  My. Dan McGillivary, well known.in  football circles and who for several  years held a position in the grocery  department of,.the Pioneer Store, left  on Thursday to take up,a similar .position  in   Saskatchewan. \        ���������    \ ���������  "Dan's" genial smile will be missed-  in Abbotsford as he was a prime  favorite with all.  Mr. W. Wells another well known  Abbotsfordite, also left the same day  on'a few weeks vacation to his people  in Alberta.  Mr. Dominy, of Rosedale, will also  join the above two*and 'journey to hjs  old liome on tho Prairie, where he intends to dispose of his iuterests there  and then return to Rosedale where he  has purchased a livery and feed stable  there. He also intends Lo bring some  thoroughbred stock b'ack with him.  Mr. Domiriy knows va good cou'ntVy  when he sees it. .  "Dan" paid a parting .visit to, Mt.  Lehman to bi:l a fond farewell to  friends there before his departure, and  the'showers'-of copious tears shed on  his leaving resembled a-young cipud  burst.  PRESENTATION  SURE  SIGNS  OF  SPRING.

It  would appear that in many parts of the  Dominion the demand for these useful  and profitable animals is rapidly developing and that those who at present  have any surplus stock can .find a  ready sale for them if a channel of  communication between supply and  demand is established. Accordingly  as a means of starting aK convenient  Directory of Canadian Breeders of  Angora Goats and Milch Goats, the  Live Stock Commissioner will be  pleased to receive from such breeders  information regarding their respective  flocks covering the following points:  1, Kind and number of goats kept.  2, Usual number for sale each  year.  3, Approxpniately the price asked.  4, If possible a brief statement regarding expenses found necessary and  the returns which-may be expected by  one engaging in raising this class of  stock.  Communications supplying the above  information, should be addressed to  the Live Stock Commissioner, Ottawa,  Out. Such leters do not require postage.

"���������  Our ShibbolcUi-Neithor for nor agin the government.  Friday, April 4, 1913  Have you registered that vote yet?  It might be  worth money to you.  The general financial head of the  United States has passed away, leaving thousands of dollars for some .one  else to finance better or worse for the  community. It would be a good idea  for us poor fellows if all the money  reverted back to the government above  a certain amount and to be spent in  building roads and bridges throughout  the country. Some day the same would  happen when some British Columbian  millionaire passed away, if that were  also law in this country. But then in  the meantime there is a whole lot of  work and thinking in many of us yet.  whose mission it was to teach the  science of business and city building  to all parts of the British Empire  ;nt?  besides  a  number  of  carcases. .  The supply of eggs has been very  noticeably    decreased,    butter,  ever, in the same department still remains steady in both supply, and 'demand.   The market was attended by a  splendid array of shippers this morning and  all   household,   commodities,  flowers  and    foodstuffs    met with  a  brisk demand.    The supply  of meats  was somewhat .larger although prices  were seemingly  not affected.    In all  departments  the proximity  of  spring  was noticeable, more fresh meats", less  eggs and  poultry, and  the supply of  greens  and  fresh fish, heralding the  arrival   of   springtide.     Cut   flowers,  rose bushes, bedding pansies and wall-  These words mean different things to different peo-  .. pie    Takentogether they will, in a measure,  .   describe for all the.people- the quality of    .  His first contention was that a city.������ flowers and seed potatoes also spoke  posed not of houses but men.j this fact aiid the demand for the produce  in   its     briskness    recalled   the  markets of the middle months.  A good supply    of    duck  eggs for  hatching purposes were offered at 50  and  75   cents,   respectively,   and   buy-  were found at both prices.   An un-  cessfully  lis   citizens,  weak   cities  ���������     (From Fraser Valley Record)  In regard to the lighting of the town  there is no person laying any blame  to;-the Western Canada Power Company, because the light is in darkness.  The committee having the matter in  hand asked the company to turn off  the lights that is the reason why they  we're turned off. It is generally understood that the'lights would still be)THE  burning if tlie committee had delayed  instructions.  There is however, no blame attached  to the committee as this paper believes  they.were acting as the majority of  the people thought was right, but did  not see where the money was coming  from/ The committee were not authorized by any power to keep the  lights on when it was not known how  they were to be paid for.  The fault all lies in the fact that a  bill was not made law at the last session to enable the provincial assessors  of the town and other unorganized dis-  , tricts  of  the  . province    where  light  could be had to pay for it in this way.  Of course it was an oversight, there  is  but. little  doubt,  unless  it  be the  fact  that  the  provincial   government  are asking us  in this manner  to  incorporate.   But then they are treating  us so'well in respect to building streets'  and  sidewalks- in  the  town that the  majority  of  the  property holders  do  not feel like incorporation f-.t the present time. 1  There are many little towns in the  province���������several in the Fraser valley,  placed in exactly the same position  as Mission City���������too young for incorporation, but yet needing all the requirements and conveniences that  would be forthcoming if they were in  the proper position to incorporate.  v/us L.oinp  and that in order to build a city suc-  it was necessary to build up  "Build weak men and  would result; crooked  men' and a crooked city will follow.  The value of a citizen to his city was  not to be measured by what-he spoke  or did, or by his reputation, but by his  character. To build up a man attention must be given to physical development, for, though the body was not as  important as the brain, well developed  physical powers. And greater .than  ���������jither body or brain was the soul."  The great thing to do, continued the  speaker, was to, find out the point in  which each citizen was lacking and  put that right. Often a small change  would mean the difference between  the failure and the successful man.  The self-reliant man so far from being  afraid of obstacles, welcomed them as  opportunities of showing his power to  overcome them. All that cities needed  to become better cities, greater cities,  was more-'men, better men, and they  mus^t strive to see that they were  building such men in'Victoria.

TO    BUILD  A    CITY    BUILD  CITIZEN  THE  London, March 17���������The newest of all  Europeans countries js far and away  the tiniest. Its name is Mount Athos,  and it only came into existence a week  or two ago, when the ambassadors of  the Powers decided that, however else  the Balqan question is settled, Mount  Athos is to be an independent holy republic.  It is a mountain twice as high as  Ben Nevis, near Salonika, and is certainly unique among the countries of  Europe in the fact that no woman has  set foot in it for five centuries. When,  some years ago, the Queen of Rou-  mania announced her intention of visiting it, the rulers of the holy mountain threatened to commit suicide if  she persisted.  The new republic, which has a little  seacoast of its own, holds another  record. .It is the only state in Europe  who national income is obtained solely  by selling cruscifixes, rosaries, amulets, and similar holy objects. As  Mount Athos contains 21 monasteries,  the export is quite a large one.  The least known o,f the other pocket  countries of Europe is San Marino, in  the heart of Italy.     It also is a mountain, surrounded on three sides by perpendicular cliffs.     It possesses nearly  J.00  castles  with  an  army  of  about  one man  to  each castle.      The  last  :me San Marino was at war was when  one  general  and    23  men t solemnly  marched out to assist Napoleon, who  received    them      with    full    military  honors.

Chickens wore more scarce  although the prices in this department  remained the same, as iast week.  Although the supply of apples were  not lurge, several boxes . changed  rands at. prices ranging from $1 to  $1.25, some securing the latter figure.  In the vegetable department prices  uf potatoes remained stationery at  from $S to $12 a ton, seed potatoes  selling for $10.'

With the diminishing supply of eggs  on the market, caused, it is said, by  the reservation of eggs for hatching  purposes and the cessation of the importation of the commodity from the  States, a strong tendency to, strengthen was noticed in the price of eggs at  the weekly market this last week,  and some of the farmers exp'ress the  opinion that the price of 35 cents per  dozen would prevail next week.

Too few breders and dairy farmers give the needed recognition to the  basis on which the dairy industry is  founded���������the motherhood of the animal furnishing the milk. One of the  most successful of the early "Wisconsin  dairymen had for his motto, "Speak  to a cow as you would to a lady;" and  when he was asked if he removed his  hat when entering the stable door in  the morning, he replied that he certainly would if he could get more milk  thereby, writes a contributor to Farm  and Home.  What owner, especially in''testing,  has not noticed that some one of his  milkers are liable to get more milk  from the cows than were the other  milkers. It is the personal equation  the regard the cow has for her attendant, that gives hand milking an advantage over the, machine; and the  more nearly the cow has adopted her  milker in, the place of her calf, the  greater will be his success as a milker.  There is usually a vast difference in  results between the milker who gets  a cow into position by pushing the leg  of the stool into her flank and then  kicks her on the shin to make her  step back, and the one, who gains the  same end with , patience and gentleness. Who can blame the cow for  ���������wanting to kick, the first man?  Aside from the knowledge of how  to feed in general and the study of  the special wants of the individual  cows, to attain the greatest success  a man must win the affection of the  cows. Some will say that this cannot  be done. But if the calf and growing  yearling is treated gently and kindly,  and then is stabled and handled before freshening like a cow, there will  be no such thing, as breaking the heifer  to milk; she will take it as the regular  thing.
