Lehman, 'the council having invested in a pair of  handcuffs.  Mr. Vogel, Superintendent of the  Western Canada Power Company  was in to.wn last week.  The members 'of the Gun Club  turned out "in full force on Wednesday afternoon and the consequence was that a very exciting  shoot was held at which there was  more sport than has been the good  fortune o fthe members for some  time.  The  Dxx Pant Powder Company  are giving   a   trophy for the club  to qompete  for.   The gold watch  lob is indeed   a  handsome gift Lo  the club and is well worth dischaig-  ing   a   few   shells.     It   is   guaranteed as .14 carat gold and valued  at $2.

This is the latest style of trap and  probably the only one pf its kind  in, the province.   One of the members   oi'   the club   in conversation  this week said that the new trap;  would be the making of the club  as it would-be' surprising how many  birds the boys would break.

FRIDAY,    AUG. 2    1912  I.I.J 1L  Thc next meeting of the Fraser  Valley Publicity Bureau to be held  at Mission  City will prove  an interesting meeting, and in all proa-  ability   a    very  important  one  to  the  people   of  the Fraser  Valley  Organization   will   undoubtedly  b<?  completed   and   with    a    view   of  carrying o,n the business on a   largn  scale for the benefit of the whole  Valley.   It is undoubtedly   '> wisi.  move on the part of the local Board  of Trade to send  a  delegate to the.  meeting.   If there is anything that,  this district requires it is to, interest settlers as we have some of the  finest land in the Fraser Valley for  ' fruit growing right clo:e to Abbots  ford.   Of course we want  a   share  of all the good things that are going.  (From the Fraser Valley Recoidl  The day of small things for tae..  city of New Westminster an'd, the  Fraser -Valley  is  past  and. if  the.  aims and objects af the Fraser Val -  ley. Publicity Bureau, are carefully,  guarded.and 'systematically carried  out so that ho particular district,  of dll the different communities ry  ceives more favors, than-the other  the pioneers in the movement will  in the course of-a   few years see  their ideas  working  with   a   vim  and utility unequalled in the annals oi' the, growth of any city and  country districts. ..It ia contended  by the originators of the scheme,  and we agree with them, that the  district along.the Fraser Valley is  not growing in  keeping���������with...the  cities of   New    Westminster. and  Vancouver.   This is not due to any  climatic or agricultural deficiency,  but to a lack of proper advertisement to the incoming settler.. This  publicity   bureau   aims   to   attract  the settler, placing before him Ehc  advantages   and   opportunities   of  nettling  in   a   district close   to   i  large city or cities.  The   council's, ; boards   of. tracle,  and   progressive   associations, ahn  to take care of the railway 'transportation,  shipping, facilities   and  the development of the natural  resources, but the object of the but-  eau is  not to interest capital it)  developing the   wealth  of lumber  and  minerals  of- the province  oj  of  the  Fraser  Valley,  but  to  sa\-  that   a   prosperous  farming"community   is   established   along  'the  fertile land that fronts the mighty  Fraser, so that its products shall  be shipped to the city to feed Lne  hundreds  of  thousands  who  imd  employment   in   these  great  business  centres.   There ��������� is  no  que:/-,  t o.i of the growth of New Westminster and Vancouver���������and  why  should it be called "Greater Vancouver"?   Why /not   call   it   New  Westminster, a   name which could  embody  all  that "stretch   of  iari'J  from  the  Burrard    Inlet "on."tho  north, the Fraser on the south, the  of land covering some fifty or rfix  ty   square   miles   of   area.   Plenty  of room for the largest cjity on tlu,  American continent.   Uu'J why not  be one name >with one aim?    ���������  The  farming  community  behina  'this large city is sure to form    i\  very prominent part in the growth  and  support Of .its many citizens  Then   why   should   not  both  N::\v  Westminster   and   Vancouver work  hand in hand in the development  of the Fraser   Valley,   ;jButi   Isew  Westminster has taken the initiative   step   in   the  welding. o,f  thrj  Fraser    Valley    communities    and  why  should  she  not have  all the-  honor that is due her?   It is only  natural that the municipalities of  the   Fraser   Valley   on   the .soutn  side of the Fraser should look to  the Royal City as the agricultuiai  capital, but it is not altogether so  with the municipalities on the .noi lh  side which have as good if not bet  cer communication  with the pres-  .cnt city,oT Vancouver than there ib  with  New   Westminster.   For  thic.  rca:.o:i then, judgment must be called in, in dealing _with these com-  n unities.   The Board of Trade and  tne   Council   of  NeAV   Westminster  must see to it that the train -service fr.om Coquitlam Junction is the  best that can  be gotten and sueh-  that those coming" in on the mam  line to Coquitlam will not have tj  wait at that point but can go ngnt  in to the Royal City. Every inducement must be held put far the  people on the north bank of the  Fraser to market in, New Westmin  ster. In other words if these people are lo make Ne.w Westminster  their objective point when ttiej.  leaye home it must be as easy to  reach New Westminster as it is to  reach Vancouver.  It.is. pleasing  to see that N,ew  Westminster   is   awakening   to    a''  real sense.of. its true responsibility.'  I.t- may not.be too  late to .retain  [ that which was its own long yeais  ago for the asking.   The city, has  risen to the occassion in promoting  -a'..harbor   scheme, that  makes  all  eyes, turn to the Royal City.v From  'the mouth of the Fraser to Misdion  City there are excellent water front  for shipping .facilities.   When  tne  go.lden , grain. crosses . the  Rocky  mountains on its way- through the.  Panama "canal  to' the markets  of  the Old World it is not likely that  those responsible for the sending  of the. wheat by this route will use  any other than the harbor facihlied  of the Fraser River.   Then, if Neu  Westminster is to co,me to her own  she must lay, aside that old lime  prejudice, bo prevalent years ago  on, the coast,, to new and modern  ideas, or in other words "Wakeo  Up"  and   carry  out  to   a   grana  finale.the harbor facilities o-f tin.  Fraser, the. welding of the Frasei  Valley, municipalities, and the establishing of  a proper, Associated  Press centre in New Westminster,  for careful publicity.   In au thest.  if  all   selfishness  is  thrown  aaiuo  she will have the support of in,-,  Fraser Valley people.  ver asking return of sudbivision  plan, the council . having insisted  on roads being slashed and opened up before accepting and subdivision plan.  From Mr. J. ��������� C.

From Mr. J. J. Cambridge, Registrar of New Westminster, acknowledging receipt of Matsqui rate  By-Law 1912.  " From  Mr. A.  E. Austin  of Vancouver asking the value the council places on the old school house,  and   grounds   at   Jubilee.   In   this  case   the   council   are  exchanging  the school house strip .of Land foi  a   similar strip  on  the  same  section to allow Mr. Austen to complete his road on   a  new subdivision ,on condition that Mr. Austeii  makes   an"'allowance   for   the   log:  building   and   clearing   the   strip  Reeve   Merryfield   and   Councillor  Lehman   were   appointed   to   inspect and  rep.ort  at next  council  meeting. ���������   ���������  From Mr. H. F.

A deputation from Bradner attended and Mr. Carmichael and  others addressed the council asking i'or . a further ���������reconsideration.,  of their plan to have the Aberdeen"  Koad bridged across" Owen's gulch.  The government, who are constructing the road,.propose to deviate from the line to avoid the  gulle'y, but the residents wish to  keep to the line. At present the  road .is wide, clear and straight  until it reaches the gulch and the  deputation consider that a bridge  .over would not only keep their  road straight, but newcomers driv  ing up from Bradner station.would  be impressed with it, more than if  MATSQUI COUNCIL  (Continued From Page One)  that nothing can be done thisyeai.  This reply was also' ordered to be'  sent to Mr. A. Gillis and Messrs A.  and  S.   Nicholson   who  asked  for  gravel to be put on the road.  .  From. MoKenzie & Mann of the  Canadian Northern Railway, stating that they have instructed their  engineer, Mr. Swan, with regard to  mighty ocean on the west and tU^tX^3*���������   thistJes  on  *he  Fraser Valley on the eaat-ta  tract    From Mr. W. Upton of Vancou-  the road" left the line and wound  ar.o.und until the line was reached  again. It was arranged toj.ask Mr.  Cruickshank, the government road  inspector, to confer with the council- and the residents at an early  date.  Mr.  Hayton  of Matsqui Prairie,  asked the council for   a   grant on  account of the ditches he had put  in, which he claims drains many  acres of land and over 1% mile^ of  public .road.   The work has. taken,  dome years to complete and in all  he has received about $360 from all  sources and he asked .the council  for $80  which was   a   very   small  proportion of what the work had  .oot him.   After considerable  discussion   the   council  decided   that  they  could  not  entertain  the application.  On behalf of the, Vancouver Pow,  er and Light Co. Mr. C. Rumnel attended and stated that the dominion government at Ottawa have  written the company asking if they  have permission.from MatsquiMun  icipality to erect their poles at the  point of landing of the cable, from  where it issues, from the. Fraser-  river and crosses the dyke to.Riv-'  erside Road, -at which point permission is given by the Light and  Power By-Law 1912. On the Mission side no special permission has  been required as the cable takea  to the river from the Brad net-  ranch straight off private property  with no roads to cross. Mr. Wil-  mot,the government dyke inspector had assured the company that  he had no objection to the wire  crossing the dyke. PermiEB'on was  granted by the council, subject to  the proper description of the.route  being given.  Mr. Owens, delegate from Matsqui   Agricultural  -Association   re-,  quested the council's assistance towards  the prize fund , of the exhibition,  proposed   to  be. held  in  September.

It follows that the trade and  growers are impressed that prices for  the remainder of this crop year will  bo governed largely by the freedom,  or lack of it, of offerings,of that we  have,  until   the  gathering of a  new  harvest In the southern hemisphere.  Plowing for next year's crop In tho  spring wheat sections Is not. so well  advanced,   according to  late  advices,  as a year ago, which, in a measure,  brings   suspicion   of  a   possible   late  seeding of spring grain as, according  to advice,  rain- has delayed, in some  districts, the fall sowings.

In the year 1909,  In addition to the home consumption,  $4,171,933 worth of poultry and $13,-  933,864 worth of eggs were expo'rted,  and the Industry-is believed to be Increasing. In many localities where  the soil is.too poor for crops farmers  have found that the return from poultry raising has amply made up for the  lack of productive soil, and they are*  turning their attention more and.more  to this Industry. England is the 'chief  market, and transportation facilities  to that country are such that quick  and cheap deliveries can be made.  Bran Is one of the most useful of  feeds for horses. It acts as a very  mild laxative, and if not used more  freeiy.flt can be used once or twice  weekly ��������� to ��������� good advantage. It has a  very, beneficial effect on the entire  digestive tract of the animal.  the following various amounts b������ granted latr road work:        '  $25 on: the road leading- to the  Ross property. $28 on.Conroy hill.  $200 on Ross.

ENCOURAGE  COW TESTING  The lump sum that a patron' receives from the factory Is not so important as the profit that it represents. -  Some of. our farmers seem to be  keeping cows only for' their society.  In Eastern Ontario'the average production per cow for.the factory season  of 1010 was 3,300 lbs. of milk. But  there are many herds averaging 5,000  6,000 or 7,000 ��������� lbs. of milk :a cow.  There'must, be some very poor cows  somewhere. The- only way to find  them is to test individual cows. ������������������  The cheese-maker can help to bring  up the standard of production of the  cows, of his patrons.., If the patron  finds that the maker is taking an interest in his business he wMl do almost anything he is asked to do.'  ��������� The cheese-maker should be a little  more than a cheese maker. He should  have an intelligent knowledge; of  farming and be able to intelligently  discuss cow testing and similar questions .with his patrons. If the maker  be tactful he will.be able.to induce,  patrons to test their cows, and in'the  end this course will mean more milk  and better .milk atthe factory.  Making Feed Go Farthest  Feed   being  scarce  this^year  and  high -in -price,. it behoves. each of us  to make' all fodder' go it's full length  by-managing the- feeding- of it to "the  best' advantage.     One -of   the   main  points   of   advantage   in   getting 'the  most out of any fodder for live stock  is to have it palatable for that stock.  When; it- is purposed to-feed straw  and dry ,corn fodder- in the-ration it  helps  much  and;,makes  the, feed: go-  farther 'If it be cut and  mixed  with  roots.   The roots, of necessity, in this  ease-must-be pulped.  By mixing all-together-some-hours  in advance of feeding, dampening It  with water' and sprinking a little salt  upon the' mixture, we have found that  cattle relish- the fodders better than  when the straw and dry corn fodder  are fed^alone. And, too, in this case  there, is practically no waste ��������� an  important  consideration' this  year.  To cut the .feed,-of course, entails  extra work. But for this work we  get ample reward. ��������� This year,, with  roots so scarce, it will be an additional advantage above'the'usual to  have them pulped, and-thereby make  them, go as far as possible. .-  L'l'L .1.'.��������� 1.

In  smaller dairies the waste would be  greater and proportionately more Ice  would be required, while with larger  ones a proportionately less amount  would suffice.  There are approximately 50 cubic  feet for stored ice to the ton, consequently for 10 tons it would be necessary to fill a space 10 by 10 by five  feet. An Ice house for this quantity  should be built 12 by 12 by eight feet,  which would allow for 12 Inches of  sawdust on the sides (sufficient to  keep ice under ordinary conditions)  and enough space on the top for packing and covering the ice.

(By special cable)  St Petersburg. ��������� News comes from  Wilna, and it is generally believed  hire, that Dimitri Bogroff, the assassin of Premier Stolypin during a  theatrical performance of Kiev, is not  dead.  If this is true the report circulated  shortly after the assassination that  Bogroff committed the crime at the  instigation of men high in power who  promised that no harm would befall  ���������him.        ,  The story goes that an execution  took place at the, hour named, but  instead.of Bogroff the man hanged  was a revolutionist under sentence  of death ��������� some time. This man was  palmed off-for Bogroff. -&  Meanwhile Bogroff, in disguise, was  spirited ��������� out of Russia; Those who  believe the story claim that Bogroff  is either on the way to the United  States, or already landed safely and  living in some American city under  an assumed name.  - JUDGE-WALLACE'     '  ��������� J1   '.Ziib^-J^^** -    L'���������,  '��������� s  "��������� TWho'{'takes *a great interest In  ' ; Agricul.ure.  -  FEED CUTTING PROFITABLE  Cutting "straw for -both 'feed and  bedding- is carried on in Ontario, and  spread the /manure upon, the land.  Anyone who has ever fed ��������� cut straw  would never be without it, especially  where fehere are milch cows or fattening steers to feed, as I have at  present.  Mixed with grain, a little salt and  dampened, it is relished very much  and eaten up greedily. To make it  still, more palatable, roots and. cut  hay may be used in the mixture if  they are grown on the farm, and If  the returns justify this extra feed,  however much the added value of the  feed may be worth, I believe the cost  of cutting is fully covered by the even  manure, easily spread that results  from feeding and bedding my cattle  with cut straw. - I know many will  smile at me for using manure in this  rich, new country, but I have two  good reasons. First, it prevents my  summerfalilow from drifting; second,  it produces, I am convinced, a heavier  yield on the succeeding stubble.- I  spread the manure on the summer-  fallow during the winter and spring  as a light dressing.  i     Cooperative Marketing Upheld  The cooperative system of marketing eggs as practised today has much  to commend it over the old system,  or lack of system. The waste through  bad eggs is avoided, the business is  carried on on a* cash basis, and we  are paid weekly by cheque. From our  experiences we would advise farmers  in other sections where a fair quantity of eggs are produced by all means  to market them in a cooperative way.  Through our egg circle we get from  two to five cents a dozen in advance  of ordinary wholesale prices. We  have not yet marketed our eggs In  this manner for years, but we are  very favorably Impressed with the  system and the members on the whole  are well satisfied with the circles  method of doing business. We are  all lending our assltance to make the*  movement a success, and we believe  that hhe future of cooperative marketing  is  assured.  j        VALUE OF A GOOD BULL  It seems exorbitant and unreasonable to many farmers to pay from  $150 to $300 for a good bull, and yet  they do not seem to have, the same  sense of unreasonableness when they  make other purchases. They will not  hesitate to buy a good horse, paying  from $200 to $300, and yet such a  horse can never be made to yield the  profit on the Investment that a good  bull will. Moreover, the work a horse  does lasts, as a rule, but one season,  while that of the bull is carried on  .for years_jo^ come. ��������� _..-   ��������� . - -  m  m  F&H TWB ABBOTSFORD POST,  The 5-acr echicken- ranch recc-nc-  ly advertised by Mr. McCalluui  has been disposed of.
