A. BATES, Editor and Proprietor  FRIDAY, APRIL 26, 1918  *tMm&LJ.mi  \\**m*  ������S������  The Mission City Fall Fair will be held as  ���������usual'this year, it is hoped that in the meantime there will be the usual, if not better, preparation for this year as there has been in  the past. Watch the columns oi' this paper  for the particulars of the progress of advance  action on the part oi' the secretary and others  in order to make the Fall Fair a greater success than ever.  We believe it is a mistaken policy tc let  any of the numerous organizations of ihe  community go by the boards during these very  strenuous times. After the war ail will again  be organized again if they do, and the time  will undouutedly come wnen there will be  those who will blame us for not. having carried on our part in such a manner as to have  everything running as smoothly as the war  will permit us to do.  Among these things which we should keep  going are the Fall Fairs, our Boards or' Trade,  our annual celebrations, such as Labor Day,  Empire Day and annual picnics. Some day  perhaps we will be sorry for not having done  so.  At last the government has asked every  man and woman between sixteen and sixty to  register. . A day will be. set apart for registration and it will be our duty and privilege  to be there and get our ticket that during me  war will entitle us to citizenship. The mere  fact of a penalty attached to same will not  make it any harder for us to enjoy this citizenship as we have all been looking for such  an act of parliament, many having expressed  the wish that it would be done. For the  present at least it will not affect us any more  than the recent acts along this line, and the  new act should meet the wishes of all who  take a particular interest in seeing ihe war  won by the Allies.  There is another step yet that the Canadian government should take, in tlio opinion  of many and that is that all aliens in Canada,  there are sixty, thousand of them in British  Columbia alone, be conscripted and work on  soldiers pay.  .. There are a great many in the country  drawing good pay; let this pay go on as usual, but take the surplus over the soldiers' pay.  and use it for patriotic purposes���������say for the  benefit of the soldiers'* wives (the Patriotic  Fund), or for the relief of the widows and  orphans of the soldiers who have fought in  the present war.  The registration is a step in the right direction, and the conscripting of aliens at soldiers'  pay would be another.  The provincial legislature has closed for  the present session, with a different premier  than it began with.- The work of the bession  has not been as exciting as some of the sessions the past few years, and it remains to  be seen whether the legislation passed will be  good, bad or indifferent.  During the present session an act has been  ;passed enabling the-government to go ahead  and complete the Pacific Great Eastern    as  far as Fort George, under government supervision.    The history of government railways  in Canada is well known to many of us and  do not reflect much to the credit of Canada.  It is hoped by all, irrespective of politics, that  the P. G. E. as a government enterprise will  be a credit to us all, and that in the future  as taxpayers of the province none of us will  have reason to regret the burden imposed upon the province.    It is a big undertaking at  a time when the country is at war.    The undertaking will be eagerly watched.  few years ago., ,You remember when, the opposition to the late McBride-Bowser' government went "east at any. time, and several trips  were made, that they used to cry down the  financial -conditions of this province, both by  interview and private conversation, even on  the public platform. The east began to look  upon the west, particularly this province with  askance as to all financial matters.  Now the whirlwind -appears to be coming  our way yet. , In the House of Commons the  other day lilr". Lemieux referred to British  Columbia as a "bankrupt province". . He  conies'from Quebec. We are not bankrupt in  loyalty at least, but that is another question.  If Mr. Lemieux of Quebec had any knowledge  of the natural resources of this province he  would make no such remark, but undoubtedly  he has remembered what he has read in the  Toronto Globe and the Toronto Saturday  Night dating back several years ago.  PRESS COMMENT  One or tho greatest diflicultics  which oditorB have  lo  contend   \vilh   is   tlie  tendency  of  those  who  aro  . supposed   to   eonuibute  news   to   a  newspaper's  columns  Lo  forget all about the news and  to air  their  opinions instead.   'A striking example ol' this is  furnished  by an American journal, which quotes this as  having  been  sent in   by     a     country     correspondent  "There has been several weddings in Rectory since Sat  urday,  but  I have forgotten the names or Lho whole  push. .  They were all good, folks, but 1  bet they will  bo sorry they marrried when they go to housekeeping  ���������things are so  high."���������Edmonton Journal.  We do not appear to have heard the last of  .the grand tirade against the finances of this  province promulgated by the opposition of a  OKGiAKJZING OUKSELVES  After all the greatest problem we have to face is  just the problem of self. It is the impulses and their  control or lack of control, within our hearts, which  make or break us. True, we may be able, with an  excollent show of roason, to blame the events which  come into our lives on circumstances ' beyond our  control, but after all, when we are honest with ourselves, we are forced to admit that most if not all of  our lack of real progress has been due to other causes.  Many of us are prone to procrastinate. Things often  ,-vvork out unfortunately on that account. It may be  that we do not show enough attention' to < details  Thus we, may have been found unfitted, when opor-  tunity knocked, to take advantage of it, or have suffered losses in other ways because of this weakness.  Pride or a quick temper may create enemies for us  whore , we need, friends. Frequently the .absence of  a clear  objective is what holds us  back.   '  It is such infiuencet' as these and what we do with  them, that really determine the measure of our success; both here and hereafter. Not until we have put  forth every effort to overcome them and have suffered humiliating defeat after defeat, do we' come to  realize our own helplessness and begin to lose confidence in ourselves. Then we understand how true  it is that "He who controlleth his spirit is greater  than he that taketh r. city."  Many books have been written which claim to  teach us how to achieve success. We are directed  _ how to control our thoughts, to conserve our energies  to draw upon the sub conscious self and to follow  many other impressive methods that are guaranteed  to obtain for us our heart's desires. But wnen we  strive, to follow these instructions we are- only too  likely to find ourselves endeavoring in reality, to lift  ourselves by our bootstraps. Even should a measure  of success come to us in ways such as these, it is  sure to be at heavy expense in other directions. In  time we will discover chat something undefinable, but  very real and necessary has dropped outof our lives.  The Apostle Paul understood all about this struggle  He knew,- also, the secret of success.    He explained  our  helplessness  to  obtain  victory   by  showing  that  ���������'we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against  the spiritual  hosts .of  wickedness    in the    heavenly  places."   It is   these great  unseen   forces  that  direct  the thoughts  and impulses that cause    our    defeat.  None of us unaided are able to win unequal struggle  against them.     What we need is a power greater than  our own and greater than the forces that are arrayed  gainst us  to  come into our lives  from  without and  give us the victory.    Where and how to obtain- this  ;powel-   Paul   also   explains   in   1   Corinthians   15:57.  After all, the greatest book on success that has ever  been written is just the Bible.     Its secrets are offered  freely to all who will earnestly seek them. There >  aro  times  above all  times  when  wo  need  sustaining  influences of just such secrets in our lives. Then  we  will  bo able to organize ourselves on a true success  basis.���������Canadian Horticulturist.  At, the large telephone exchanges in tho city, an Information  desk is maintained to give inquirers tlio numbers of people whose  names are not listed in tlio directory.

This is about 38 per cent of the Information  calls each day, and it takes about M hours to answer that many.

PUT  WEEK'S   BAN  ON  TRAVELLING  SALESMEN  What Is accepted by some dealers  here as the thin edge of the wedge  to drive out the drummer from the  realm of Canadian business has been  put into action by the Board of Food  Control.

The direct reason for this action  taken off the road for one week,  by the Board of Food Control is  more or leBS vague in the eyes of the  concerns affected. Thero wac some  talk at Ottawa a few weeks ago that  the commercial traveller was a nonessential to war-time business, thus  cutting down expenses all around  and releasing travelling accommodation for other uses deemed by the  Government as more important.  Jus;; what the salesmen are to do  while their movements are thus restricted has not been made clear yet,  and it is up to the companies to  find some other employment for them  One firm anounced that it was giving  Its num. holidays for the five-day  period, but in the event of a repetition ol the order, and such is not altogether unexpected, this course is  not likely to be taken again. While  only iiour handling concerns are so  far effected, it is probable that dealers in other commodities will ;be  brought under the order in their  turn.���������Victoria  Colonist.

TRY to picture yourself in the muddy cold .trenches after  exciting days and long nights of mortal danger and intense nervous strain. Rushing "whiz-bangs" and screaming "coal boxes" are no respecters of persons. You are hit!  But despite shock and pain you still can face the long weary  trudge back to dressing station. Weary, overwrought and depressed, you are prey to wild imaginings of that other coming  ordeal with the surgeon. There are other "walking wounded,"  too!    You must wait, wait, wait.    And then���������  Up comes a cheery Y.M.C.A. man, the ever-present "big brother"  to the soldier, with words of manly, encouragement. Close beside the dressing station- the good generous folks at home have  enabled him to set up a canteen. He hands you biscuits, and  chocolate or coffee'.  sW-5"���������,  Canada-Wide Appeal  "In thovisauds of ca5jcs," writes an officer, "it was that first hot  cup of coffee that dragged the man back Lo life and sanity."  The tremendous helpfulness of the Y.M.C.A. as an aid to tlie  "morale," or fighting spirit, of the soldiers is everywhere  praised. No wonder the Germans make every effort to smash  the Y.M.CA. huts out of existence.  Tlie Y.M.C.A. is everywhere. You first met* the helpful,  "manly Y.M.C.A. worker in camp, then on train and boat, at  camp in England and in Prance, close to the firing line. Often  he risks his life to reach you in the trenches. He has won the  wannest- praise from military authorities, statesmen���������the King!  Have you a precious boy at the front? You cannot be "oyer  there" to guide him away from fierce temptations of camp and  city. You cannot comfort him in his supreme hour of trial.  Your parcels to him are necessarily few. But the Y.M.C.A.,  thank God, is "over there," going where you cannot go-���������doing  the very things you long to do���������doing it for you and for him.  Will you help? This vast organization of helpfulness needs at  lease S2,250.OC0 from Canada for 1918. For your boy's sake be  GENEROUS!!
