Following are  a feAv extracts from some recent letters.  "Many thanks from all  ranks of  this Company.  (Signed)   J.   E." Gobeil,  Capt,  Canadian Divisional Train"  "I have received case and on behalf of my section wish to tender you  our sincere thanks for same.

(Signed) A. C. Ross, Capt. and Adj.,  Can.  Entrenching Battalion."  "On behalf of my men, I thank tho  Donors most heartily.'  Wishing you  success in the good work.  (Signed)   A.   D.  Nilson,   Major,  Batt. Canadian Infanty B. E. F."  With the incease in men arriving  at the front the work of trying to  supply all Canada's soldiers with  smoking material has become increasingly difficult and unless the public  contribute more generously, many,  many soldiers will be deprived of  their comforting smokes.  The editor of this paper any local  Post office or bank will receive your  contribution to Canada's Tobacco  Fund of Avhich the entire cost of organization and administration is  borne by the Over-Seas Club.  For every quarter contributed,  some soldier on active service receives a large packet of Canadian  manufactured Tobacco, 50 best  quality Canadian made Cigarettes  and a box of matches. Those of our  readers avIio can help in this matter  are invited to write to F. R. Jones,  the Organizing S&cretary, Windsor  Hotel, Montreal,. P. Q.  Miss McMaster is visiting her  parents here.  Mrs. Barrett, and daughter  of Sumas were visiting their  parents Mr. aiid Mrs. A. J. Anderson, last Sunday.  Mrs. Ayearst left on Friday  night for the east. She has  been living with.Mr. and Mrs.  Boyd for a considerable time  and will be greatly missed by  her many friends. -  Mr. and Mrs.,Alanson spent  several days in Vancouver last  week.  Miss Dorothy Parton was a  visitor in town last week and  brought her sister Florence  home for the week-end.  The Masons held a grand  meeting in the Masonic hall  here last Tuesday evening. Over 80 were present. After the  meeting a magnificent banquet  was served. Brethren from1  Vancouver, New Westminster,'  and Bellingham were present.!  Mr. Bruce gave an excellent  address on Friday evening last  About $30 was made.  Rev. J. L. Campbell is home  for a few~'days 'looking "after  his garden.  Mrs. Campbell is going East  as a delegate to the Presbyterian missionary council.  Mr. Cobley and family are  moving to Vancouver.  Miss B. Trethewy has been  a visitor in Vancouver and Chil  liwack.  Mr. and Mrs. Wiggins and  daughter were visitors in Vancouver last weekend.  Reeve McCullum's new office  is now about completed.  Mr. Zeigler is painting a part  of the town���������riot red.  Mr. E. Ryall is driving a jitney from Abbotsford to Vancouver.  The social given by Mrs. J.  F. Boyd and Mrs. B. B. Smith  for the Red Cross was a grand  success in every way. 18 tables  of Progressive whist were in  Masonic hall.  .The ladies of Abbotsford who  lake pride in knitting sox will  have an oportunity of displaying their skill in this work on  May Dy;   as  there  will  be a  knitting race for    the    ladies.  .Each one who enters the race  will be requested to    start    a  sock at the same time and the  one who knits the longest leg  of a sock in one- half   hour's  time will win.    All the sox,are  to be the same circumference,  or number of stitches cast   on  needles.    This contest will  be  during the afternoon.      It    is  not unlikely that Mrs. Maines.  although 83 years of age will be  in line to win the .prize, as she  has a record of knitting a sock  a clay with the exception of Sundays since the war began. More  particulars will   follow    later..  The general preparations    for  May Day are progressing very  favorably, the final success depending to a large   extent   on  the weather conditions on May  Day.  GARAGE MECHANIC  01S  DECK FULL TIME  During the past few days the  Abbotsford Garage is one of the  busy spots of Abbotsford. .The  new mechanic, Mr. Storms arrived this week and there was  work for him to do right away,  and he has been a busy man  ever since.  An old auto expert of our  town says that the way Mr. R. J.  goes after the sick parts of the  cars would make a troubled  auto driver's heart leap for joy.  At overhauling old cars he is  an expert, the diagnosis being  made in very short order, and  promptly attended to.  You know where the Abbotsford Garage is���������just close to  where the gold nuggets are  stored.  THE VACANT LOTS  At the recent meeting of the B. C. and  Yukon  division, Canadian Press association, it Avas    recomended    that  the minimum price for subscription  to Aveekly newspapers should be $2  a year.    The majority of provincial  Aveeklies have always been sold    at  that rate.    It was stated that no less  than seventeen Aveekles had dropped  out of the struggle during the past  tAvo years.    The great increase,    in  paper prices and in all other expenses incidental to the publication of  neAvspapers   has  affected  the     publication both north and south of the  line.     In the United States over 800  neAvspapers  have ceased  publication  and in Ohio alone   110   have   been  forced out.  Policeman Curley has resigned and with his family will become a resident of the prairies  where he will go in for farming.    Rev. W. McKay returned  missionary from South China  will speak in the Presbyterian  church on Sunday.  Rev. T. E. Roe of Sardis will  hold services at St. Matthews  church on Monday evening at  8 p. m. instead of on Sunday.  The Westminster Presbytery  will hold their next meeting on  May 1st in Chilliwack.  A beautiful writer has saidA "If  there be a pleasure on earth which  angels cannot enjoy and which they  might almost envy man the possession of, it is the power of relieving  distress. Every kindly act we do but  inclines us more and more toward  such deeds, and we become readier to  do the same again and with more enjoyment. Every kindness done to  others in our daily Avalks alvances us  nearer those great souls Avhich make  the age they live in memorable.  jack���������Our hostess was really the  most beautiful of all Avomen present.  Fio���������She took rood care to arange  for that when she sent out her invitations.  With such weather it would  be well to defer the cultivation  of the ground for the present,  says an expert as Jupiter Plu-  vius has put old mother earth  on the hike.  On Saturday April 14th a. Masonic gathering and banquet  was held in the Masonic Temple in Bellingham 'Washington,  and' a very pleasant time was  enjoyed. Among those who  attended from Abbotsford were:  J. H. Boyd, J. A. McGowan, J.  Shaw. Mr. Gosling, E. Scotsvolcl  A. Salt, R.Shortbreed, H. Hill,  Mr. Wallace and Wm. Longfellow. A number also were present from Huntingdon, including Mr...Cobley, Mr. McMurphy  Mr. Henderson and Mr. York.  Mrs. A. Lee who has been  seriously ill is gradually improving in health, although  still under the care of Dr. Swift  at the Bateman nursing home.  Mr. Mathews is convalescent,  after a very serious illness in  the  Dalton hospital, Sumas.  The government has refused  a hotel licence to the Ashcroft  hotel.  j  Dr. Thompson of Sumas died  on Thursday morning. THE ABBOTSFORD POST. ABBOTSFGED, B.\o

Conditions like those.prevailing at present seem Lo bounu
to continue while the war lasts. Many of our food products are
being deposited at the bottom of Lhe Ocean by the German submarines. It is for the man who has money enough to buy a
hoe and energy enough to wield it to get busy in the back yard.
It is commonly complained that after one-has paid the expenses of a back yard garden there is no profit left. That may
be true when (.he householder hires all Lhe heavy work done;
-also he would better ask a little advice of experienced gardeners
at the various stages of the game. But lhe earth is iruittul. U
properly encouraged with good care, quite a dent can'be made in
the high cost of living.
An exchange tells of a newspaper reporter who interviewed
thirty successful business men and found that all of them when
boys had been governed strictly and frequently thrashed. m
?lso interviewel .thirty loafers and learned that
twenty-seven of them had been "uianmma's darling," and the
other three had been reared by grandmothers.

- With the interest that has become general in .Brazil in the
matter of stock raising, the State of Rio de Janeiro has recently
passed certain laws .tending to favor the interests of breeders ol
hogs for slaughter. ���,-,,-        <-ua
The state.tax of 12 reis per kilo upon all xard   leaving   th-
state has been reduced to. one half. The decree establishing this
states that it has' become needful to encourage as much as possible all those interested in improving the hog raising* industry
of the country, and.in producing lard and other pork products
by' modern methods such as are in use in other countries. it
further states that the recent beginnings of a profitable beei,:
exporting business in Brazil should not make the farmers forget that there is equally great profit to be obtained from the raising of hogs, and it promises a continuence of the policy of lowering gradually all the export duties upon the products of agriculture and ranching. It also describes the profits which accrue
yearly to such countries at the United States and Denmark from
hog raising and suggests the possibilities of developing not only
a good industry in lard, but in refrigerated pork, bacon, hams,
sausages, etc., with the State of Rio de Janeiro.
These are busy days for the.gardener and ttie fruitgrower.
With fine weather there will be something doing in the next,
few weeks.

OTHER ARTICLE���-and it wouldn't "stop" anyone who didn't want to bny- That's the beauty
of the advertising way of finding a buyer. The
ad. finds the buyer through the simple process of
being easily and readily found BY the buyer -
And if, among the prospective buyers of goods,
there .is one to whom your, goods would be a bargain, and your ad. is a convincing one, you'll sell
what you want to sell.
Advertise the Goods You Sell the Public
Advertising never before offered so much protection
to the consumer. �� In periods like these���with a shortage
be so widespread that unbrauded merchandise deserves
more  suspicion. than  ever  before.
The advertiser must above all else, stick to established
in practicality all stuffs, substitution is palpably bound to
standards. His .is a long drawn game and, however little he can afford to preserve accustomed quality, he dares
still less to lose the results of invested publicity.
Trade with retailers who-regularly advertise and ask
for goods which newspapers r-ave rendered most familiar. Other stores and other manufacturers aren't equally obligated to square dealing.
Buy better goods���they're cneaper. Labor costs in all
commodities are destined to rise steadily. The various
expenses of business will also increase, therefore the lower the price of merchandic, the bigger percentage of
production cost per article and consequently a smaller
margin for materials. Thus, if a ten-dollar suit of
clothes could formerly be turned out for a fourth less than
at present, a suit of clothes purchaseable for ten dollars
today can't be expected to possess anything like the same
durability. Give enough to get enough. There is no
thrift in unwise expenditure. Service establishes the
measure of economy.
Superstitious persons look upon
the combination of the sixth day of
the Aveek and the thirteenth day ol
the month as singularly unlucky.
Whenever Friday,which separately is
regarded as the day possessing the
farthest south in luck, falls on the
thirteenth of the month, many people
have an ecstasy of shivers and carefully refrain from starting any ucav
combination Avhich * Ave have to-day
does not occur often; there will only
be one other Friday the thirteenth
this year, and that Avill be in July.
Friday Avas not always considered
unlucky. The day Avas named in
honor of Fr'iga, a goddess of the
character of the Roman Venus. Friga
was the wife of Odin, and her day of
Lite Aveek formerly Avas looked upon
as particularly lucky. Among ��� the
Mohammedans Friday is not a day
of ill omen. It is the Mohammedan
Sabbath, the day when Adam was
created, Avhen he entered paradise,
and the day when he Avas expelled.
It is the day of the Moslem assembly
for Worship. In the Catholic and the
Greek church Friday is celebrated as
the day of the crucifixion. It is a
day  of  abstinence.
In the Unitd States, April 13th,
which this year happens to be Friday
is celebrated as tbe birthday - of
Thomas Jefferson. On this clay in
1776 Washington's main army
reached New York City, and in 1877
the first telephone line used for business purposes was opened between
Boston and .Smnmerville. And if
one were to delve into history doubtless one could Unci a lot of unfortunate things Avhich happened on this
day of the month.,However, nobody
is going to worry much about Friday, the thirteenth. Most of us will
take the position that it doesn't mater what happens, so long as it does
not happen to us.

To Connect With Mission City  Some months ago we called attention to the fact that the  Canadian Northern had its eye on Mission City and it looked  as though the. time would come "when the passenger traffic and  the freight would be diverted partly over the Canadian Northern  to and from this town.  Although nothing definite ,is as yet settled the course of  the next few months may see an auto service over to the Matsqui station from Mission City. If so this is just the beginning  of a more extended service for our town, which will be welcomed if it helps the present situation to any extent. The  C. N. R. is after the business and they are going to get it.  Mr. Jas. Gascoigne returned from  the coast Tuesday evening.  Mr Spencer of Cedar Valley has  enlisted and gone with the Engineers.  Mr. and Mrs. McLaughlin,' of Vancouver visited Mission City over the  weak end.  IVTr. R. G. Phipps, a solicitor of  Vancouver, Avas visiting Hatzic over  the week end.'  ;:vlr. Jackson, of the- Vancouver  Daily Province, Avas a visitor to Mission City on Wednesday .  Several Normal School students  returned to Vancouver Sunday evening after enjoying a fine holiday.  Mr. Wm. Spencer, avIio left here  last fall to visit the east Avhere he  had not been for 25 years, has returned to Mission City to live. He  is now 74- and looks hale and hearty.  The regular meeting of the W. C.  T. U. will be held at the home of  Mrs. Butler, on Friday, April. 20th  at 2.45 p. m. Subject, "Health Conservation of Girls." There Avill also  be a paper by Dr. Stuart.  Mr. D. H. McGillivray, ncAV of Vancouver, Avas in Mission City this Aveek  on business.

A chemist in  New York displays a, check paid for  his invention to prove that he devised  a solidified gas which can be molded into pills. A cigar box of these  pills costing .'PO wl.ll take an automobile all Lhe way across America. Tlio  invention will be rapturously bailed  not merely by automobile owners,  but by those who felL nol, able to afford a car. Mr. Dooly has told us  Dial, all Lho delights of sleeping car  travel may be' enjoyed by anyone  who put a cinder in his eye and recline upon the manllcpioc'e. Similarly all Lhe sensations of an easy  and costly joy ride may be experienced, no doubt, by merely swollow-  ing a couple of these pills. With  closed eyes the captive imagination  will perceive the delicious aroma of  gasoline in combustion, the tympanum will be agreeably shocked by the  concussion of exploding tires, and it  only remains to address one-self now  and then a summons to appear in  court and pay a fine in order to complete the realism. The cost of the  garage and the salary of the chauffeur may be struck from the budget,  and the money saved devoted to the  black diamond and pearl necklace.  Soon at the nearet drugstore the upholstered limousine will be aAvaiting  the AvithdraAval of the cork; and the  victims of auto intoxication engaged  in putting a mileage between themselves and honest work will bestrsAV  the streets like Avounded men upon  the   battlefield.  immmmjmwmmgmmmmm  J.
