The Associated Board of Trade  of the Fraser Valley, at the annual  meeting held in New Westminster,  last week in the council chamber endorsed the request that tho Pitt River Road and the Dewdney Trunk  road between Port Coquitmni and  Agassiz be declared a primary highway, asked the government to construct a lateral road leading from  the Yale road near Norton station on  the Chilliwack line of the B. C-.'E. R.  across' the Sumas Prairie, and urged  an investigation into the mail delivery service at several points in the  Fraser Valley.  Mr. N Hill, Abbotsford, was  elected president, while Mr. N.  Kendall, Cloverdale, succeeds Mr  H. Keary- as secretary, the latter  stating his inability to continue the  ou'ice owing to lack of time. Mr. J.  Brydges, Abbotsford, was elected  tvrce-president, the executive and  members consisting of the president and secretary of ea������h local  board of trade affiliated with the  parent body.  Aid. R. C.  and Mr. S. H  sponsored the resolution advocating  the Pitt River road being declared a  primary one, Mr. Galer stating that  Hon. Dr. Sutherland, minister of  public works, had intimated a chauge  in the Highway Act, while Mr. Crosby stated that in view of the immigration policy recently initiated and  the prospect of settlers .11 riving in  British Columbia, the need of such  a road was essential to increased  farm production.  Complaints as regard the mail service in the Valley, were made by Mr.  P. H. Dawson, Huntingdon, who  stated that a morning collection and  transportation by the B.C.E.R.  morning train from Chilliwack  would allow delivery to be made in  New Westminster and Vancouver  the same afternoon.- Mr. Brydges.  supporting the Sumas resident, stated that although the latter point was  but three and a half miles from Ab-  bosford, a-letter mailed from the  latter point had first to go to Vancouver, then to Seattle and brought  from the American city to Suiruib  Similar instances were stated to be  in force at Murrayville, and Langley  Prairie. Residents found--it rnnro  practible to either drive or walk to  the Langley seat of government and  deliver a letter personally rather  than trust to the mails. Each local  board of trade will be asked to report on the postal service to Mr.  Kendall who will in turn compile a  full report for the proper authorities.  Mr. David Whiteside, -M. L. A.  made a brief address on the operations recently commenced by the provincial government at Nicomen Island, which will lead to the Island  be'ng protected from the annual  floods, t The local member of the  provincial legislature expressed his  hope that the differences between  Victoria and Ottawa had been overcome.  A resolution, introduced by the  Huntingdon board of trade, petitioning the provincial government to  declare the Vye road in Sumas municipality as being part of the Yale  road and inter-provincial highway  instead of the Delair . road, was  thought to be more a matter for the  '    ^CcmTinued on Page Four)  Recta mat ion Sch cine  Brought to Success  The  unqualified  .success   .of  ��������� the  Sumas     Reclamation   Scheme,       tho  stupendous   task   of   the   contractors  in   bringing about this success,     the  part thai   the human element played  in the work,'    especially during    the  winter months,    and    how it is proposed to dispose of the lands in thj  area  secured   from   the  Federal   authorities fo.r the nominal sum of one  dollar, were referred to in the course  of an address given by   Hon,   E.   D.  Barrow, provincial  minister  of ���������< gri-  culture at    the   complimentary    banquet tendered him    and the vis':ing  members  of the    Associated Boards  of Trade of the Fraser Valley by the  New   Westminster   Board   in   the   St.  At the  outset of his address,  Mr.  Barrow declared that at the, present  time the work has    progressed to a  point where ther is no longer    any  doubt of  the    feasibility  or success  of the scheme, for at the present rime  there is already sufficient protection  to enable the farmers in the area to  crop  their  lands.     Previously,   practically  all   of  this    hind  was  uader  feet of water for  during   the   aunual  spring freshet period.    But this year,  with the    dyking    system    partially  completed, the farmers are breaking  soil for the first    time    in    history,  marking the beginning of a new era  for the Vedder River Valley.  In view of the fact that the work  was carried out by the government,  which necessitated the successful  completion of the scheme if a return of the huge expenditure involved was to be realized, the main objective was to afford the area a  measure of protection never before  afforded any district in the Feasor  Valley. As a result huge dykes of  immense width and construction,  three feet higher than, the point  reached by_ the flood waters or  1894���������the greatest flood in the history of the province���������wore constructed. In the Fraser Valley, stated the  minister, about 75 per cent, of the  most arable land in the Valley is  protected by a dyking system, and  each year during the freshet, headlines in the press, proebaim the fact  that one' or other of the particular  areas are in imminent danger of  flooding through the bursting ol* the  dyke. But with the Sumas area, the  great effort has been to avoid any  such "occurrence;- and the feeling is  that at. no time will the farmers be  jeopardized by the flood "waters.  "When the system is entirely completed." he asserted, "Sumas Prairie  will boast of'a system of dykes  stronger than at any point in the  province or on the whole Pacific  Coast."  The cost of reclaiming the area  has been charged against the lands  in the area, and all of the mono/ expended will be returnable, the entire scheme being in the nature"of  an'investment to develop the agricultural resources of the province. In  addition to the 21.000 acres of privately "owned land, there is also a.  total of about. 1 2.000 acres held by  the provincial government. Of this  latter area, about 2000 acres wi'l be  taken un with roads and other features, leaving 10,000    acres    to    be  s������lf!-       ' ,  ,.

The accident occurred on December 14 last, during the open season  for deer, in the timber between  Huntingdon   and   Peardonville.  Cox, who had been following a  deer's track for several hours  through the thick underbrush, the  ground covered with snow, saw an  object about seventy yards' away. A  momentary glimpse showed this to  be of the same color as deer, and.  according to Cox, if walked like lhat  animal. I-To fired in the direction  where the object disappeared. A  shout followed, and Cox found Pras-  iloski writhing on the ground, the  bullet having penetrated his arm  and body. The wounded man was  carried to a farm house some miles  distant, and was later taken in a  wagon to a hospital at Sumas.  ���������"The defendant, having in possession a rifle for hunting purposes,  was required to use consequent caution," said Mr. Justice Macdonald.

Whatever else we may say of  Coue, the eminent French faddist,  he is a money-maker and a superb  advertiser. He was thoroughly familiar with dementia ' Americana���������  that is to say their, peculiar,form ,of  hysterical emotionalism and {heir  habit of following every half-baked  theory announced in the most glaring oi headlines���������before he left La-  Belle France.

Vancouver's  mayor loves frees.  In Kamloops there will bo no  frees purchased by the city for planting on the boulevards outside the  residences' of those who wish them  for bcautificalion purposes. This  decision was given a few evening!?  ago at the council meeting.'  In Merritt $70 was refused by lho  city council for trees' to be purchased to be planted along the school  grounds'. The grounds are 45 0 feet  long and it was the intention to pro-  , tect the trees with a low fence. ' It  was alsa intended to put loam a-  round the trees.  In Mission City the W. 1. several  years ago planted young maples  along Grand Avenue. The trees  are being looked after and in years  to come will undoubtedly enhance  the beauty of that street.

Here  are some figures that are astonishing, and yet from personal knowledge you and I know them to be  true.  In 1904 a certain automobile man-  ufacurer built and sold 3 7 two-cylinder automobiles.; The price of each  was $1230. In 1915 the same concern built and sold more than 45,-  000 six-cylinder automobiles and  the price of each was $9 50.  What created the demand and  why was the price reduced? The  answer to both questions is���������-advertising.  Who paid  for the advertising?  The manufacturer didn't pay for  it because he received a great deal  better car -for his $950  than he did  vertising game.  And what did Coue see over in  America? Waiving his surprise at beholding pajama-clad men running up  and down Pullman car aisles, he beheld the people as a struggling ant  heap of money-mad wretches, crazy  as March hares, witho.ut deliberation, without poise, without any  conception of life in its wider meanings���������but just lunatics' who do everything for the dollar, nothing for  any higher motive. He found man;  noble exceptions to this charge, undoubtedly���������-but not too many.  At the sign of the dollar he beheld all Americans bowing in adoration. No Parsee sun-worshipper, no  Mussulman���������in short no whirling  dervish under any flag or religion  showed'greater obsession, greater  blindness of worship than the American renders unto "the wheels marked E Pluribus Unum."  If you do not know what that  means, look at the inscription  (above the stern faced woman labelled "Liberty") on any American silver dollar you may happen to see or  possess. Above the eagle on the reverse side you will behold a sentiment which Koo-Aye pronounces a  lie.    It runs "In God Wo Trust."  Unless the thing on which the  sen '-sent is written be the Ameri-  car   Jod it is a falsehood he thinks.  ft X)-Aye sees nobody^ pausing to  thint about God, but he sees multitudes who mumble prayers in mad  haste, then rush off again in the  chase for more silver wheels.  It must be confessed that old  man Koo-Aye is an efficient diagnostician, which, is the word applied  by doctors to one of their own ilk  who can tell what is wrong with a  patient.  Koo-Aye is a specialist���������he ought  to call himself an insanity doctor���������  l 1*   JL.U TJJ      *     ���������   ^      w    .  Then who did pay for it ? Echo  answers' "who?"  It does take a lot of money to advertise; but advertising creates, a  demand. The filling of that demand  necessitates quantity ' production.  Quantity production is the cheapest  means' of reducing cost -."without decreasing quality. '  When quantity ���������production ;'is',.required, the saving x because of it is  more than enough to pay -for'.''the advertising which' is creating .tho demand. Instead of the consumer being required to .pay for the advertising, he actually saves money, because he can buy advertised articles  for less than he would have to pay  for the same thing made in small  qantity.  So well-advertised merhandise is  generally the best "buy." More quality and quantity can be obtained by  the purchaser for less money '.'.when,  he orders well-advertised goods.  Does this apply in the case of  purchases of machinery, tools', utensils and farm supplies?  It does, most assuredly.  That is one of the reasons why it  pays a man to read the advertisements in the Fraser Valley Record,  and to meet his needs by pui chasing  advertised  products.  When a man goes to a ' bank to  borrow money the bank wants to  know first whether or not he is hon  est.

The road, which was built by th/j engineering division of the Canadian  National Parks Branch, is important  because it is the first highway across  the central Rockies and also because  it forms the last link in the great  6,000-mile Circle Tour, a system of  motor highways which extends down  the Pacific coast from Seattle to  southern California, returning via  the Grand Canyon, the Yellowstone  and the United States Glacier national : parks to the Canadian boundary.  The booklet does not profess to bo  a complete guide but tells in an interesting way the story of the construction of the road and gives a  brief description of some of the attractive points along the route.  The Vermilion Pass  It .is interesting to note that so  long ago as 1858; Sir James Uec-  tor, geologist to the Palliser Expedition, who explored this region in  connection with his search for a  suitable pass for a railway, pointed  out the feasibilty of the route for a  road. "Of the passes traversed  by our expedition," he wrote, "the  most favourable and inexpensive to  render available for wheeled conveyance would be Vermillion pas"i, as  the most gradual of them all." After  Hector's discovery of the Kicking-  horse pass and its' selection for the  route of the Canadian Pacific Railway, the Vermilion pass was practically forgotten, but when the project of a transniontane motor highway was formulated in 1912 the low  elevation of this pass at once suggested it as a desirable route for. a  motor highway which would ar. the  same lime open up the glories of:'the  central Rockies and give access to  Banff   National   Park.  lOvcry Mile a'-Surprise  The booklet is illustrated with  32 halftone engravings which indicate the beauty and grandeu-*- of  the .scenery through which the .-oad  passes. One of the most strikiir-, of  these is' Sinclair canyon, where the  road lias been blasted through towering walls of red rock. 'To one  who has not known them," says the  writer, "it. is impossible to describe  the delights of the new motor highway.

Mr.  sec-  Mr  :me,  All Saints Church, Agassiz, was  the scone of a very pretty wedding  on April ISth, when Mis Daisy Isabel Althea, third daughter of"  and Mrs. Chas. Lovell, C. P.

The church was beautifully decorated by Miss M. . and E. ���������' Agassix.  friends of tho family, and was filled to its capacity by relatives and  friends.  The bride entered the church on  the arm of her father to the strains  of Lohengrin's wedding march, played by Miss 'B. Inkman. The bride  looked charming in a King's blue  -m'essaline dress -with the customary  veil and orange blossoms, which  was arranged coronet style, and  carried a bouquet of Ophelia roses  tied with streamers of white satin.  Her sister, Miss Pansy Verbena was  in attendance as bridesmaid and  looked very pretty in a pink organdie dress with picture hat to match,  and carried a bouquet of pink' carnations and roses: Mr. Gordon Andrew Lovell, of Dollartoh, B. C,  brother of the bride, supported the  groom.  Tne bridal party left' the church  to.the strains of Mendelssohn's-wedding march and drove to the home  of the bride's parents, where a dainty  wedding breakfast was served. The  table was decorated with pink carnations and daffodils, the center of  which was the three tier wedding  cake. Among those who attended  the reception were Rev. ,T. S. Turkington. Mr. H.

Jerry, eagerly tore open the envelope  and unfolded the paper it contained.  Surely it was from Glynne. He  was1 disappointed���������it was from Angus and it concisely told hi in thn- he  bad secured a. substitute for him and J  that things were running smoothly  at the office. There was a postoript  that conveyed the hope thar Jerry  was beginning to feel bolter.  Jerry wondered why lie ha I not  received a letter from Glynne. She  bad not said she would write, but. ho  thought she should. Maybe she had  forgotten him. Tliis (.bought chilled  him to the bono. Surely she was not  as flippant as that. Another day pas-  sod and no letter, jerry's attack of  '���������Inns '���������ri(u,"i',d. Me was not enjoying  himself a bit.

Why hadn't  Gylnne written, him?  Arriving in the city and not bothering to go to his boarding houne, he  checked his suitcase at the station  <ind hurried over to the office. His  face was set and stern. If he had  lost his' job-  He ran up the steps of the ' Journal" building and into the editorial  room. All the reporters were our. by  this time the paper would be through  the presses and out on the street. He  walked to the door bearing the awe-  inspiring words "Editor." He would  reassure himself once and for all.  He was just about to open the  door when he saw a new office adjoining the sanctuary of the.Editor.  He walked over to the door. On plate  glass were written the words "Assistant Editor"���������and his eyes nearly  popped outkof his head���������underneath,  in neat gold letters were the Avords  "Mr. Jerry Carruthers.''  Overcome with surprise, Jerry  snatched open the door and���������stopped. His face was a picture of. surprise.  A girl was sitting at the glass-  toped desk, her face buried in a  mass of papers. SlOwly the girl  raised her head. Would wonders  never cease? It was a girl with beautiful- hair, dark eyes' and wistful  lips���������it was Glynne.  Jerry stared at her in astonishment as her pretty lips tendered him  a smile.  "Hello, Jerry," she greeted, rising  from the chair, "How do you like the  idead.of'my being your substitute  and how do you' like your new  office?"  Jerry's' face fairly screamed perplexity.    He advanced towards her.  "My substitute," he, gasped. "My  ���������office, why���������what do you mean?"  "Why, Silly," explained Glynne  "Didn't you know Mr. Angus'was my  uncle? I coaxed him to let me take  your place. You see I know the  newspaper game and even edited our  college paper. I was just keeping  your "lace until you came back,"  she added shyly.  As if by mutual understanding,  Jen"1' took her in his arms. She  nestled close, to his body and rested  her head on his shoulder with a  little s'gh of contentment.  "We've got a great story for your  'undo, haven't we, dear?" he mar-  in u'-ed.  Just then the door opened and the  bend of Angus appeared through the  apprfure.  "I heard." he grinned. "It will  lie a great story���������exclusive, too, even  if T am an old bear."  His chuckles were wasted. The  others were busy���������with other tilings.  Toe End.  RECLAMATION*   NOHRV3 K  BROUGHT TO SUCl JOSS  (Continued   from   Page  One)  stated that while the exact, py ce-  ��������� lure had not as yet been determined, they will be put on tho market  m a manner to profeci tbe int.ui.esit.  of the private owner, and the proceeds devoted towards reducing' r.ue  capital charge of (lie undertaking.  Under the plans already formulated,  rt is'proposed to divide the area into  40-acre blocks, for if is felt that a  farm of the extent of Sumas lands,  s sufficient to enable a man with a  jertain amount, of capital to raise a  .ainily and to maintain a proper  standard of living. Where the land  .s cut up by drainage creeks and  other physical features, the purchaser will be allowed to "purchase addi-  ,ional units, ifhe so desires. Disapproval of the farm of from'1 five lo JO  acres was registered by Mr Barrow.  Referring to the prospective purchaser, the minister asserted that,  the man who starts farming today  on borrowed money entirely has  practically no chance of ma icing  good. Tho "back of the land" movement, he felt, had been overdone in  the Fraser Valley. To eliminate, any  difficulty in this connection, it is essential tbat the purchaser has a certain amount of cash. If a farmer  has1 lived and farmed efficiently in  the Fraser Valley I'or any length of  time and has not accumulated a cer-.  tain reserve fund, there is something  wrong with his makeup, and probably ho will not make the desirable  kind of settler for the area.  With the right kind of settlers, it  is proposed to demand a cash pay-,  ment of 2a per cent, of the purchase  price, with no further payments beyond interest for two or three ., ars  In various other settlement projects,  a cash payment of 10 per cent."was  adopted, but this was1 not favor.-d by  the speaker, for it offered great opportunities' to the speculator.

The petitioners held that the time for disposing of the land was decidedly unfavorable, at present. Mr. Barrow  stated that the owners were nol  prompted by any selfish motive, and  were acting in good faith in their requests. Under an ��������� agreement with  the farmers, any plan for disposing  of the lands1 must be first submitted  to them for cpnsideration. He did  not favor holding'--- back sale of the  lands. In any event, he continued,- nc  'lands-will be offered until late in the  summer, and then only a small area  would comprise the initial offering.  In conclusion Mr. Barrow referred in glowing terms to the spiri-  displayed by the contractors ana  their officials' in carrying out .the  work under the most trying circumstances. The two previous winters  were the worst in the history of the  province, but still the work went on  Tn the fall of 1921 the floods created  havoc to the completed works, washing out great quantities of material  and resulting in other general serious setbacks. In the winter of the  same year, frost of from 16 to 2 0  inches deep���������an entirely unheard of  previous occurrence���������further hampered the operations, and during that  winter.more men went through the  Sumas camps than on any other occasion. Still the work progressed and ���������  the efforts of the late Mr. R. J. Duncan, C. A. Strong, chief engineer foi  the contractors, Capt. Musson- and  several others were eulogized by  Mr. Barrow. The late Mr. Duncan  had staked everything he had on the  venture, and strove untiringly to  bring about its success. Including  Mr. Duncan, four lives have been  lost in the project to date. But, concluded Mr. Barrow, the completed  job will stand as a perpetual monument to the men whose one and only  consideration was the successful  completion of the work without even  a thought for their own personal interests or the pay cheque.      ,:  With the conclusion of Mr. Barrow's address, Mr. N. Hill of Abbotsford expressed the thanks of the  audience to Mr. Barrow for giving  "the romance of the construction of  the Sumas' project." Mr. Hill also  thanked the members of the New  Westminster Board of Trade for the  banquet. In responding to the latter Mr. E. A. Riddell, president ol"  the local board, stated that despite  the belief that New Westminster was  a suburb of Vancouver, the one and  only interest of the residents was entirely with lhe Fraser Villoy.  The banquet was very successful,  a general spirit, of cordiality and expression of good-will prevailing. Mr.  Riddell acted as chairman. I.'uring  the evening, Mr. Bradshaw rendered  several solos. Mr. Frank Major officiated at the piano.  GIFFORD, April 24.���������The Matsqui Council liclu a se.-s.sion Saturday  to suit the wishes of tho. ratepayers.  The long-suffering residents of tho  Fore and Turner roads, failing in  ihe unanimity which would .have  given (bom crushed rock, have a-  greed on gravel, which will be laid  down by Manson Bros., L. Svard and  It. Gil berg for .$1 per yard, and no  local improvement tax will be levied  against them.  A dozen stalwart Bradner' men  cafne down with forceful phrase's,  which caused the council to move after lunch to a controversial ' gravel  pit near Rand.  Their grievances lay in the doubtful quantity of the gravel and difficulty of access. Tliey felt that the  ���������l{;8 00 to be spent on their road, and  the $200 in preparation would not  be good business.  The reeve admitted that Bradner  had the worst roads in the municipality, while 'containing tho most  enterprising     settlers. Councillor  Kcay said that the $10 00 he had appropriated for this work could not  be better spent than by the plan proposed. Those who opposed it were  requested to show how and wlmnce  road material could be obtained  cheaper.  Tho council, holding its final session on the B. C. E. Railway platform gave the interested parties two  weeks in which to devise practical  proposals, and they would give  judgement at their meeting on May  ">. The disinterested councillors felt  that personal sentiment was being  placed   before  public  advantage.  Mr. J. Douries reported to the  council the information he had gathered concerning the proposed lockup at Mount Lehman. A suitable  building would cost upwards of $2,-  000, and he did not consider this  expenditure   justifiable,   seeing   that  HAPPILY WEDDED  NISWTON���������FRENCH  (From   Fraser   Valley   Record)  May 1,  1922.  The council referred the subject  back to the Police .Commission for  reconsideration.  Instead of cutting^, the hill on  Riverside road, which would' expose  i sand-bed, unsuitable for traffic,  Councillor Mutch proposed filling  tlie hollow at its foot with crushed  rock, flanked by gravel. This would  greatly imp'rove the thoroughfare,  vhich is of great importance to Abbotsford.  The council, in fixing the tax rate  'or 1923 lowered the general and  .school rate two mills on improved-  lauds. \The wild land tax remains  me same in toto, thought some councilors would increase it.  ��������� The exemption limit on improvements is raised from $8 000 to $10,-  .')00. The rate is set at eight mills  cor schools, ten mills for general  purposes on improved lands,, and on  ���������JO per cent, of improvements over  i'10,000 with 27 mills"on wild land.

It  is'.talked about before and after,  which goes to show that the public  are really interested in ' the welfare  of those who embark on the matrimonial boat. But when a wedding is  to take place in a church, the  church is not generally an objective  point at the hour that the event Is  to take, place. When the contracting  parties are well known it makes the  event much more intersting. Thus' it  was that the Methodist church on'  Thursday afternoon last was filled  to its fullest capacity when Miss  Marian Valentine French and Mr.  Frederick Newton were, united in  marriage by Rev. C. W. Whittaker.  The sun did shine that day intermit-  ently, and when it did it was indeed-  bright.  Thechurch was beautifully decorated for the occasion, the ceremony  being -performed beneath an arch of  greenery and white flowers, centered with a large bell.  The bridal couple entered the  church together to the strains of  Lohengrin's wedding march played  by Miss Helen Shea, who wore a  pretty dress of yellow organdie w ith  hat to match. , The bride, looked '  charming in a( beautiful dress Ox  white satin made Grecian style with  panels of silk radium lace and trimmed with velvet poinsettas, pearl  beads and silk hand embroidery. She  wore the customary -bridal veil with ���������  lovely wreath of orange blossoms,  pearl pendant, pearl brooch and carried a huge bouquet of pink arid  white carnations. Miss Delia Cook  of Vancouver assisted the bride and  wore a lovely costume of pale blue  tafefta silk, brocaded silver slippers  and carried pink flowers. Mr. Harry  Cook acted as best man. Miss Sue  Bowyer and Miss Freda Christie, ���������  friends of the bride, acted as usher-  ���������ers', dressed in dainty frocks; of pale  blue and pale green organdie with  hat to match. During the signing of.  ���������the register Miss Jessie Elliott* pang  "Sunshine of Your Smile" and looked picturesque in peach organdie.  Following the ceremony a wedding ���������  supper was served to intimate  friends of the bride and groom at  the home of Mr. and Mrs'. F. Sollo-  way. The bride's mother ��������� wore a  costume of black satin, beaded. Following, the wedding supper musical  nmbers were enjoyed, among which  a solo ,by the bestman, Mr. Harry  Cook, "All Joy Be Thine."  The guests' at the reception included: Rev.' .Whittaker, Mrs. Bryan  (Lynn Valley), Mrs. West,- Mrs.  Hall, Mr. and Mrs. A. E. Watkins',  Mr. and Mrs. H. Sweeney, Mrs.  Streeter, Mr. and Mrs. F. Solloway,  Mrs. J. Bowyer, Miss " Delia Cook, -  Mr. Harry Cook, Miss Sue Bowyer,  Miss Freda Christie, Miss Violet :  Tunbridge,  Mrs.   Christenson.  The happy couple will reside '  in Mission City where a new home  ���������'is being built.
