Before the war caused a suspension of the fair these exhibits were  most interesting showing the keen  competition between the different  municipalities, and judging by the  intimations already received by the  secretary, Mr. McKenzie, a number of  municipalities are now preparing to  again enter in this, popular contest.  Tho'provincial exhibition, taking  place as it does in the first week of  October, comes at a time when the  smaller centres have held their fairs-  and therefore aro in shape to collect  the best of their entries for exhibit at  the big fair. Fair time in New West  minster is holiday time for the average farmer and breeder, and that is  one reason why the Royal City holds  a premier posilion in the exposition world.  One and perhaps' two buildings  will be devoted to this department a-  lone and plenty of space will be afforded for the district managers to  give full scope to their artistic abilities.

It would  .take several months to prepare for an  election.  He claimed that the government  had honestly endeavored to carry out  its pre-election pledges and that the f and sister from Clayburn, Mi  THE   IMPORTATION   OK  AUSTRALIAN RASPBERRY PULP  The news published in your issue of  last week, that a first consignment  of Australian Raspberry Pulp would  shortly reach Vancouver, may have  hr.d a disturbing effect among the  growers of the district.

The gentlemen who are putting up  this brand of talk, have evidently not  slopped  to  consider some important  'facts   which   have   a  b-ariug  on   the  situation.     To begin with, how about  the voters' lists?     How many of the  returned soldiers aro on" the lists? Not  very many.     What provision is there  for putting them on? i'ractically  none.

Wherever the. Canadian Soldiers went, the " Good old 'Y'" went too. And  now it is coming back home with-them!  For the support which has made possible the war work  of the Y.M.C.A. we thank you. Your money has been well  expended.    We have rendered full account.  We ask-now your continued sympathy and support for  Red Triangle Service for our Soldiers during demobilization,  and for Y.M.C.A. work for Canada generally during the Reconstruction period. The Annual Red Triangle campaign  will be held throughout Canada May 5th to 9th, 1919.. The  objective is $1,100,000.  The Y.M.C.A. will keep its  chain of Service unbroken  till the end.

The' Reconstruction  program of  the   Y. M. G. Ai  - includes   the   following  vitally  important  developments:���������  1.    An'increased service to  300,000   teeu-age  boys  in   the  Dominion���������the . development of Canadian Standard Efficiency  ��������� training;   Bible  Study  groups; summer  camps;   conferences;  ��������� service .for High School boys, for working boys, in  the  towns  . and cities; for boys on the farm and for boys everywhere, who  have lacked opportunity for mental, moral, physical or social  development.  2.    Inauguration of Y.M.C.A. work in the country, and the  smaller towns and villages lacking  Association buildings and equipment, on a plan of county organizations.

The establishment of the Red Triangle, in isolated districts where lumbermen, miners and other workers hold the  front trenches of industry.  5. Besides these main fields of increased activity for 1919,  we have to provide for enlarged work among railway men,  college students and for our campaign to encourage physical  and sex education. Under all our work we place the fundamental foundation of manly Christianity.

Henderson.    Haney is agitated over the location   of   the   proposed   highscliool,  and alarmed at the resolution of.the  school board at  their last meeting to  transfer the present superior-' school  at lianey to Maple    Ridge   superior  school.    It Is understood that this is  preliminary to converting   the   combined schools into a high school, the  work of which both schools do at tha  present time.    Haney is therefore determined   to  make   this   high   school  location the isoue at the election and  if their candidate is successful it will  be regarded as a mandate from the  people that the school must be built  al Haney as the legislative centre of  the municipality.  The-present school board is anxious  to have the matter settled definitely  as the rival claims of the two town-  sites h ave seriously hampered educational facilities in connection with tho ���������  high school work. The board therefore welcomes the contest.  END STOMACH TROUBLE,  GASES OR DYSPEPSIA  j  "Pape's Diapepsln" makes sick,'sour,  gassy stomachs surely feel fine  in five minutes.
