DesMAZES  A11BOTSFORD AM) WHATCOM RCMD  Whatcom Road, Tel.  2.m       Farmers 1912  Milking Wild Cows  At Vancouver Fair  The most screamingly funny and  intensely exciting contest, in* the  "Range Days" competitions at the  Vancouver Exhibition, August 11th  to 18th is the one entitled "Wild Cow  Milking." A late visitor to the Cal-  ,gary "Stampede" has this,to say a-  . bout it. ���������   ���������'  "The Grand Stand went crazy. It  -was a riot.The funniest and most ex-  .citing spectacle I ever watched. I  , expected a tragedy every minute and  yet roared with laughter all the  ..time". . i.      .  "The event was chock full of the  most exciting thrills, a dozen laughs  in every one of them. Twelve wildly excited crazy cows," protesting  jyitheyery ounce of their vitality a-  gainst being" robbed of the sustenance intended for their calves, and  .twenty-four equally excited and apparently crazy cow boys bent on perpetrating that robbery."  "The contest is conducted in this  _way. Twelve wild cows just off the  range that have never been milked  by man are drawn for by "twelve  teams' of Cow Boys, each team consisting of two men, a roper on horso  .  back and a; milker on foot. The  cows are driven into the big enclosure in front of the grand stand and  a given signal the twelve ropers on  horseback are admitted to the same  enclosure.    Each  roper is. supposed ���������  to  cut  out of  the  herd  the  animal j  lie has drawn for and hold it until his .  mate extracts a   small   quantity   of |  milk in a bottle.     The milker  does  not get his bottle  from the judges j  until his roper has caught their cow'  and the*prize goes to the team whoso  milker gets back to the judges first  with milk in his bottle.  "There you have    the   "Mise    en  scene", but if the wildest stretch    of (  your.imagination can    picture    what j  happens after the stage is set and the  whistle blows "You're a better...man  than I am "Gunga Din".  Vancouver Exhibition officials  confidently declare- that the "Rango  Boys" competitions at this year's fair-  will fully equal the Calgary "Stampede", and if all we hear of this latter spectacle is correct, visitors' to the  Fair this year have a novel and interesting experience  awaiting   then.  GUGaSlAi AlIddVH  HARVEY���������CARR  A very pretty wedding was solemnized Wednesday morning at St. Margaret's church, Bradner, when Nina  .marguerite, third daughter of Mr.  and Mrs. G. P. Carr of Mt. LeLhman  becamet he bride of Stanley Francis  Harvey ������������������of Mt. Lehman. The brides  maid was Miss N. H. Carr, sister of  the bride, little Miss Emily McCaul  of Vancouver was flower girl and Mr.  J. P. Carr supported the groom. The  Rev. A. H. Priest performed the ceremony.- Following the wedding a reception was' held at, the home of the  brides parents, Mt. Lehman, where a  dainty luncheon was served and the  happy couple left later on a honeymoon trip to Victoria and Vancouver  Island. -...,   .:\.._   . . ���������     -i    * , /  ���������Ear Heavy Traffic  On Matsqui Roads  The municipal council of  Matsqui  definitely  decided  on   Saturday   last  to prohibit the further use of its road  to Mr. P. Bain of Mission    for    the  hauling of logs to the C. N. R. depot.  i It is claimed that this heavy haulage  . has' cut up the    Page    and    Hargitt  ��������� roads that it will take    a    thousand  dollars to repair them, according, to  ��������� an estimate.  j     The contract of the Poignant Rock  ; crushing plant, was cancelled by the  council on account of delay.  A month's.^notice was given to the  Poignant. Company, who were building the Harris-road to report progress, at:,this:<meeting. The progress  noted was so)scant the contract was  finally cancelled. It is estimated a-  bout a third of the road has been  rocked according to contract.   ":  Councillor Bell was authorized to  make what immediate arrangements  are possible for the finishing of this  road with gravel.  His first act was to make an agree  nient with Pf������������������ Gustafson for taking  gravel from the Mt. Lehman pit at  a contract price. of two dollars per  yard.  Mt Lehman  HOSPITAL DONATIONS  DEFER   ACTION   ON   PLEBISCITE  At the regular meeting of the Surrey council held' on Saturday last a  communication was received from  the clerk "of the Ladner council, requesting that a plebiscite be taken on  the question of hard-surfacing of the  famous Scott road. This created considerable discussion. Definite action  on the matter was deferred until  such time as figures in connection  with the cost of maintenance of the  road during the past five years are  obtained. Should a bylaw be submitted, it is probable that for the  first year it will call for paving only  the South Westminster flats section.  .In sending the Post the list .of  hosptial donations for the month of  July, Miss Campbell says; v"Friends  of the hospital have been very generous', and our grateful thanks are due  to all who have assisted in any way."  The list reads as follows:  Mr. James Trusler $5 for grama-  phone records; Mrs. Zeigler, flowers;  Miss Peck, flowers'; Mr. W. Wells,  flowers and magazines; Dr. Quinn,  magazines; Mr. T.

"Adequate rates" is  its slogan and ideal and due to the  persistency of the efforts of its found  ers nearly every fraternal benefit society doing business in this country  today has its business regulated on  an adequate basis.  The' assets of these fraternal societies are invested in bonds, the money from which has erected school  houses, built roads and streets, and  other public improvements which  mean so much to the health and prosperity of our nation.

BATES. Editor and Proprietor  ���������"V  FRIDAY, AUGUST  10,-1923  pi _.  The passing away of the chief executive of the United States has been  a shock to the people of this province as well as to his own people.  Coming only a few days after he had  made so favorable an impression upon Canadians by the most tactful way  in which he touched on the relations  between the two countries, the grief  of the neighboring people, seems a  very personal one to the people of  British Columbia and more particularly the citizens of Vancouver and  the Eraser Valley.  It is useless to speculate on what  will be the outcome of this so sudden  ending of a presidental career. Presidents have been suddenly called a-  way before and the great democracy  . to the south of us has gone on. The  provision that the vice-president succeeds the president in the event of  , giving up office in the middle of a  term,  will: enable the nation  to collect its ideas before another presidental election.  Vice-President Calvin  . Coolridge will .no    doubt    make as  worthy  successor  to -President  Harming as President Roosevelt made to  President McKinley.  The recent-   school    examinations  announced the result that will-bring  joy to some and sorrow to others. To  ��������� those^who have failed the repeating  of-a year is-perhaps a. serious' matter, for'it. means .the loss of a year  .from one's-, preparation for life. However,  many of us -would be glad to  lose as little as one year- from our  lives, in, order to retrieve    the    mis-  stakes-or. neglect of our. past.  But-school examinations, it should  be-remembered, are neither a test of  one's  scholarship  nor  one's     knowledge. .-They are--a 'more or less arbitrary-test,  set  out'for  want of a  .better.to determine the uniformity of  grading in.the public schools.     They  are-based on the. fallacy that all the  young-minds are capable'of the same  kind of development.    It is presumed that we begin- with the same mental endowment or should do.so, ifl we  do not, in spite of the fact  that in  later life we exhibit such a variety  of  mentality.     . They are  set,  these  early summer  torture. 'instruments,  by one set of scholastic romniscienta,  who may set easy, medium or hard  questions-..according, as they are ������uf-  ���������fering from normal or abnormal experiences  or. i .indigestion   mental  or.  physical.      For it is surprising how  active the"personal=,equation must be  :in matters; of. this   kind.

They, too, may be ��������� fooled as    to  what a child knows, if they judge as  they only can from what is on the  p-j.per.    For there are means of deceit revealed-to the-younger generation, not known; to Machiavelli and  his ilk.    A .presiding;examiner"  may  be able to swear; that    no    copying  "went.on in the room, but certain'innocent-faced  youths,  might  be  able  to put him wise if they choose.  l   After all the only fair test of    a  child's knowledge is the good  judgment of the teachers with whom he  has been associated all year.      And  the only way to acquire the mental  development to take one through life  is to be keenly observant of all that  is brought to one's knowledge whether at school or .abroad, not only that  but to seek such knowledge far and  wide  wherever it may  be  obtained.  That' is, study to develop- the' mind,  and the examinations can be trus.ed  to take care .of themselves.���������Times.  for the nourishment this food would  afford.  It is' such conditions that make it  possible for British Columbia jobbers  to import fruit and offer it at a lower price than can be accepted by producers in' the province without loss.  California fruit is dumped in the B.  C. markets and the result is a stalling of demand for local fruit.  This' trouble runs through tiie  whole structure of business and involves the entire processes of production and consumption from start to  finish. It cannot be remedied by  waving a magic wand. It is a pro7  blem that will, have to be solved bv  the combined efforts of government,  producer, jobber and consumer alike.  Efforts have been directed toward its  solution, but with only partial success. It must receive more serious  consideration.     It can  be solved.  Obviously the home market should  be conserved for local production.  The farmer or grower cannot accomplish this. There are too many factors uncontrollable by him governing  the situation. There should be enough patriotic people in all walks of  life to get together and save home  markets for home products. We  should he just to our own people bo-  fore we become generous to foreign  growers, no matter what bargains  they  offer.���������Vancouver World.   ���������  "Lots of Places Worse"���������  Far be it from us to speak disparagingly of Enderby's future, says t! e  mommoner. .But gawd forbid that  we should sit down and rest contert  .on the often misquoted fact that  "there are lots of places -wrose-o'f  than we."

DOUBLING THE LOSS  The importance to the grower  of shipping first-class berries to the  prairies is not ^sufficiently appreciated. When berries, arrive showing  mould, or even softness, the effect  is to curtail distribution. This  causes less and the loss is not restricted merely to the lower price received for that particular car. Let us  explain: >  ' A car of soft berries contains no  "shippers." This means that the  jobber cannot supply his country  trade, the result is,' that he is loaded  with berries which he must force on  the city markes within a short space  of time, as they will not "carry over.'  Not only does this mean a glut on  the city markets with crresponding-  ly low prices, but it means' the lost  of sales to he counry which can never  be recovered. This is most serious  when the widest distribution possible  is needed.  It is a double-edged weapon which  cuts both ways���������and the grower Is  the victim.  Alex.

PORT HANEY, Aug. 6.���������A Japanese farmer was charged with carrying firearms without a licence anc>  shooting pheasants out of season, in  the Maple Ridge court on Saturday  last. Magistrate Drain dismissed the  case as a recent amendment to the  Game Act gives a farmer on three  acres or more permission to kill  pheasants that are destroying crops,  at any time of the year. This a-  mendment was made to the act at the  request of the Fraser Valley farm-'  ers whose crops have suffered considerably from the game birds during recent years.

Box 94  MAN, WOMAN AND FAITH    '[  (From The-Trail'News) j  Here .is .a little story ��������� from real  life. It came to us the other day, arid  we think it is one of the finest storf  ies ever told. ���������-  They had grown old together, .he  and she���������rman. and "wife. _ 'They had  battled together, for. years' in a little'  business all their own. For years he  and she had kept a.lit'tle store in the  middle of the block���������a little store.  ��������� One, .day she���������the ''old woman,"  . as. he;would.often-speak of her-^-o!..  day his comrade was taken ill. Then  she-was taken homeland later'they  hurried her off. to. the .hospital.-There  she" had a nice room���������a room that  cost all to. much for the old man's  pocket-book.; '       ���������' "::  After a time his dear old pal recovered, but was never well enough  -to return to.the store..  One night he came'home, and she  asked:  "How was business' today "  The old man stood washing his  hands at the sink, and -answered  "Pretty good���������rpretty good today.  But, somehow, that store will never  be the same without you. I'm so  sorry you are not strong and well'like  you used to be, for I miss you so  much." : ���������  There was a faint flush of a  younger color .in the old . woman's  face���������for wives only live for the finer sentiment, in life, and "years .only  quicken their interest.  One day she started to visit the  little store. But it was a long, hard  walk for a woman of her age.  On the sidewalk, not far from  where the .old store stood, she saw  him standing with a tray fastened to  his shoulders, and on the tray a collection of collar buttons, shoestrings  and papers of pins.  He had sold the store to pay the  doctors' bills, the hospital bills and  other expenses of her illness.  Where the little old store had been  was a fruit stand.  That night, when -he arrived at  their little home, she, in her usual  cheerful manner, said: "How was  business today, William?"  "Business'is pickin' up, Jane," was  his optimistic repjiy.  That night they had sat where  they had grown old together, and  each harbored a secret from the other  ���������-the brand of secret that spells sacrifice and deeper sentiment.  Old age, like sorrow and solitude  has its. revelations. As we grow  older, life grows darker, till only one  pure light is left shining for us, and  that light is���������faith.  Jane . and William still had this  faith in the immortal future. That  was all that was left to them, b':t.  oh, what priceless possession it was!  In theee days-of intensive farming  intensive cultivation, intensive competition, intensive marketing, and in-  tensve everything else, no- man can  afford any opportnn'ty that may be  offered to learn something iboui his  business, that is why no farmer i-an  aftord t.) inu<s seeing the great exhibition that is to be put on in Vancouver this yecvr.

A study of the many exhibits  will enable farmers to improve'their'  live-stock and crops in many ways.  The housewife will find the show  fully as" interesting as her husband  New recipes, new household conveniences, latest styles, premium winning exhibits of cookery ' and the  ��������� thousand and one other intcrtstiug  and instructive sights that will give  her a new outlook on life and unable  her,to go back to her multitudinous  duties refreshed and invigorated.

B. Haddad, formerly of Mission, City, but latterly of Ashcroft, is  to move to Merritt, where he will-  carry on business.  Many rubber hot-water bottles ar)  ruined through being improperly  stored. After it has been used for  the last time the bag should be emptied aird then hung upside down for  a day with the stopper removed. Thi  outside of the bottle should be rubbed with a soft rag which has a small  quantity of vaseline on it. This will  help to keep the rubber from perishing.  A little air should be blown into  the bag and the stopper screwed oh.  If. a rubber bag is stored away without air it is almost certain that the  sides will stick together.  Do not attempt to fold the bag in  any way, but hang .it up in some cool  position away from a strong light. If  these simple hints are observed the  hot-water bottle should be in perfect  condition. when it is required again  for use.  Clouded sic ies, rain, low temperature with veiy' .little sunshine has  been the week's record.  it is doubtful if any week in our  experience has been ie* favorable, to  the consumption of highlv perishable  fruit than the one jusc ending.  Monday ushered in a cold rain  which lasted all day. Snow" was reported on the foothills early Tuesday  morning. Even Calgary had a light  flurry, followed by a cold rain.  The sale of ice cream was reported  only a third normal and this is a fair  estimate of the effect on the sale of  berries.  A fine car of Hatzic rasps, arrived  on Monday. These had not cleaned  when a carload of L. C. L. arrived  from Salmon Arm Wednesday afternoon. This weather not only hurts  the city trade, but by making the  trails almost impassable, has a - clis,  astrous effect on country trade as  well.  Similar conditions in ' Saskatchewan and Manitoba brought alm.'st  congested markets with a resultant  drop in price of berries which was  reflected here. This should orly  prove temporary, as the raspberry  season is nearly over and future shipments' should be small.  The first shipment of green'pe'p'prs  arrived in the city Thursday morning  from Peachland, "and are retailing at  40 cents per lb.  - The market is well stocked ��������� with  Red Astrakan and Wolf River apples  from Yiakima, which are selling very  freely, as the price is less-than B...O.  crate apples sold for last week.  The city, markets are'well supplied  with, local vegetables of all kinds.  A fine sample of Seedling, cherries  arrived at our office this, morning in  fine condition. These were sent by  Mr..

The Vancouver rally immediately  followed, Joe Painter scoring , the  first, while Crookall batted in; the  ball a minute later during a ,,mad  scramble in front of the net. ''The  fourth quarter started .with .a rush,  Strome hitting the upper post with a  fast shot that Davis failed to glimpse  On the return attack, Angie Mac-  Donald got the better of an argument  with Cliff Spring and scored at a  time when Spring was recovering  his' balance."'

BE $800,000  Marlon, Ohio, ��������� Aug. 6.���������Close  friends of the late President Harding estimate that his estate probably  is worth between $700,000 and $800,  000. Before he assumed the presidency, Mr. Harding was regarded as  wealthy, having amassed a fortune  of some dimensions from the Marion  Star, the newspaper which he owned  since 1884, until it was sold recently  The controlling interest held by Mr.  Harding was said to have brought  more than half a' million dollars.

This week there has been  received a car of California Elberta  peaches, donsiderahle Washington  fruit, and also some assortment of  B. C. cars.

Tere is and can be no, jealousy  in, bur .hearts, for in' the prosperity  of the Dominion'there is nothing foi  us but benefit.  . It. is real, prosperity of the sort  that in." the forties ".and, fifties was  making the United States' great. The  country is filling "up with immigrants  of the best class, such as were, then  coming in swarms to the United  States.. The population is moving  west'and taking ' up land. The, now  Canada already furnishes, much lor  the wheat on which the Old World  depends.  . Canada what it did for us a hall  century or, more ago. The transportation lines of the Dominion are already, magnificent and are steadily  improvig. No other railway project  was ever more daring than the building of a line through the wilderness  almost at the northern limit of -possible human habitation, to the shores  of Hudson Bay, to open for a few  months of the "year the shortest  route from the grainfields of the  West to European markets.  Canada is tinder free institution- -  self-governed   and   well-governed.: .It  has  bred a body of public men  of.  ability ��������� and   high   .character.   Americans may not appreciate the worldly  wisdom that leads Canadians to cling,  to  British  connection;  but they can  appreciate the sentiment behid their  willingness- to  forgoe "the  last righa  of coriiplete sovereignty in tlieir pride  as a part of the British; Empire, for  there is now rioi material benefit for  them In the   connection.    Once    the  atatesriien'of the    Dominion    might  have  regarded   separating  from   the  empire as sacrificing protection that  they needed.    Now if any duty, remains,  it  rests  on   Canada  to   help  England.    The child looks naturally  to shelter and    protection    at    the  hands of a parent; when it is grown  up filial affecion holds it true to its  allegiance.  History can be searched in vain for  a parallel to the relations, physical  and political, between ;Canada and  the United States. There has never  been another such stretch of unguarded boundary between two countries, -never two peoples, living side  by side for so long a period in entire harmony and good feeling. It  Is all the foren remarkable when we  consider that the two peoples are almost absolutely alike in .everything  except that ane" of them cherishes, a  sentimental allegiance to the British  crown. A stranger alighting from  the air in. a town in New York or  Ontario would need to inquire :in  which country he.was; for the houses  'the people and the modes of life are  identical.���������Youths Companion.

ALBERT LEE,  Baker and Grocer  MARKETING   NOT  AN  INDIVIDUAL  PROBLEM  Aaron Sapiro says marketing is  not an individual problem, it is a  group,problem. You cannot market  without a distinct consideration oi  what all the other producers are doing at the same time. You canno  market without knowing what the  market absorption is, or what the  market demand is, what the money  markets are, and the other element!:,  of trade. Production can be done  individually. Marketing can be done  safely only on a collective basis and  through organized effort. The cooperative structure rerepsents that  organized effort. The farmer must  have some way in which he can take  the crops from individual production through the group problem as financing and marketing. This way is  co-operation with experts handling  these technical group problems from  a emmodity standpoint and not fron:  a local standpoint.  The commodity idea must be handled within practical limits. But the  commodity idea is the only thing to  bear in mind when you are thinking  of successful co-operative associations. -   -     -  /'/������^3r  ^  OF ALL KIND  NOTARY PUBLIC  Marriage Licences Issued  REAL ESTATE���������Money to Loan on Good Farm Mortgages  .cCallum  Abbotsford  w  A'HEALTHY CHILD���������  is always ready for something to eat.

AN  UP-COUNTRY  MAGISTRATE  Tn our good friend, Fred Barnes,  Enderby has a man after the type of  one Magistrate Jones, Crank-in-Ord-  inary and mayor of the Bailiwick, of  Toledo, Ohio. The other day ^.eight  culprits'appeared before Magistrate  Barnes. All were young fellows  from 15 to 18 years of age, arrested  for stealing a ride from Sicamous to  Enderby on the passenger train.  Magistrate Barnes put on his  specks;looked the youths over;warned them of the pitfalls' that strew  the way of the wayward youth, and  set them free.  The'' other    day    a cuplrit     was  Drought before the Toledo Magistrate  charged with stealing a. loaf of bread!  from a baker's wagon.  'How do you plead?" asked the  judge.  "Guilty", answered the prisoner.  "And why did you steal the bread?  "I was hungry and had no money.  The wagon was standing there���������nc  one near and I could not resist the  temptation."  "I accept your plea of guilty.and  fine every man in the courtroom ten  cents for living in a city where a man  has to steal in . order to eat." and  with that Jones tossed a dollar into  a near-by Panama and motioned thb  deputy to collect the assessment on  the crowd. The amount of $5.40  was collected. v  "Here is the money to pay your  fine," said His Honor, "and I remit  the fine. Climb out of here now and  prove me a true prophet when I say  you will never do this thing again."  ���������Comoner.

The deposits are  very large and equal in quality to  that found in Quebec. Mr. A. M.  Herring who owns these properties  has been for the past two weeks examining the deposits, along with  mining engineers.  Two mining engineers arrived last  week at Siwash creek to work on the  gold quartz mines.

Knowledge is necessary as to the  proper times at which to pick flowers  intended for making scent. Pinks for  instance, only yield their scent after  having been for at least three hours  in full sunshine. Roses on the other  hand, must be gathered as soon as  open, and jasmine before sunrise.  They say the sensations afforded  by heliotrope, almond^ clematis and  ivanilla are all similar and near the  bottom of the scale. A sharper note  is struck by lemon, verbena and the  citron. .. .'".'.  Scon ts, or course, are manufactured from niLny other substances besides flowers.

ROAD .WAS BUMPY;   TEETH  FLEW OUT;   CLAIM DAMAGES  FOLWERS THAT GIVE SCENT  Hardly any brown or orange colored flowers are of value for making  scent. A few pale yellow flowers,  such as the American jasmine, are  useful. Blue flowers, such as violets  arid red roses' are valuable; but, as  any scent manufacturer will explain  white flowers are more scented than  those of any other color.  It is evident to most any one how  many pure white flowers possess intensely sweet scents. To mention  ony a few, there are tlte tuberose,  the double jasmine, the white lily  and  that blooms of  the orange and  Los Angeles, Aug. 4.-���������Even tho' a  county road may be rough the county is not legally responsible for teeth  jolted out of those who ride on the  bumps, it was held in an opinion  rendered by ounty Counsel Hill in  the case of Mrs. J.
