Residents in Abbotsford are fortunate in having a merchant doing  business in the town who has established a reputation for making first-  class ice cream. The other day four  automobile parties called on their  way to a picnic in Chilliwack for a  large" quantity of Mr. A. Lee's ice  cream. When-paying for'it each remarked that they could have gotten  it in Vancouver and probably in Chilliwack, but.that they considered the  Abbotsfcrd. ice cream the "best in all'  B. C." having had- some on a prev-.  ious occasion. - This speaks well for  the local ice cream which is made of  the best cream that can be produced  from milk from the district.  Mr. Lee is well patronized locally  too.  ,  The, Presbyterian   Sunday   School,  the St. Paul's Sunday School of Huntingdon,   with   representatives   from  Musselwhite,  Kilgard and Whatcom  Road assembled on Wednesday',' the'  11th at the McCrimmon Grove, near  DeLair's orosing. ��������� The day was favor  able and over one hundred children  with .their parents gathered and had  a most enjoyable day.   -Tables were'  spread among the trees near the fine  Tunning stream .of clear cold  water -  and ample justice was  done- to the ,  bountiful spread of good things provided by the ladies.    After this the  boys and girls competed in games and  a  match "game  of Baseball  between  the married and- single- women added  much amusement to,the proceedings'  of the afternoon. , A call;to.the free  feast of ice cream broke up this game  befcire a finish was attained, but the  married ladies had a score in their  favor when the bat was dropped and  a  rush "was  made  for  the  luscious  product, of the Vanderhoof Farm.  The' men present were discussing  the project of a permanent park at  this place and a hope was expi'essed  by all that another year the Grove  might become the property of the  town and municipality and be provided with all the up-to-date<! re-'  quirements of-a summer resort.  The grounds are ideal in many  respects and .no doubt the McCrimmon Bros would be generous in meeting the projectors of such a desirable  object. The following ,girl3 and  boys won honors in the game's;  "..Girls oi.12 years:  lst,_ Annie. McPhee; "2nd, Evelyn Davenport.',.  Girls of 11 years. 1st. Mez Stevens  2nd.

Longfellow met with "a  very nasty accident on Tuesday last.  As he was walking along one foot  went bump up against a nail in a  board, tripping him anl he went full  force forward, and seeing that he  was about to touch mother earth with  his nose, which might be smashed, he  put out his hands to a kind of protect himself. His face- was not hurt  in the fall, but there was another  rusty naiKsticking in the board and  after the collision our friend found  his hand fastened to the board, the  nail having gone through the hand  head upwards. He was nailed solid,  but he must get away, and sealing  his lips, setting his teeth and shutting  his eyes, he gave one awful jerk and  took most of the hand with it, leaving the rest he hiked to Dr. Swift  without even looking at the nasty  wound. The little session in the Ur.'s  office was a stormy one, but after  having the wound nicely dressed Mr  Longfellow smiled once more, the usual happy smile, feeling just as well  as if nothing had happened.  Mr. LongfelloAv's many friends will  regret���������no! be pleased, to know that  outside.a little inconveniecne of having his hand tied up that he is getting along nicely, and able to sit up  and still take notes���������no notice.

Solanum .Tuberosum, otherwise the  potato, is the most used and the most  popular member \of the vegetable  kingdom. Next to wheat its intrinsic  as well as its aggregate value is the  highest of all the foodstuffs. In 1914  the,potatoes produced in .Canada" a-  mounted "in quantity to 85,672,000  bushels and in value to $41,5'98,000  This statement of fact is sufficient to  indicate the important place that the  potato holds. In Ireland, when the  potato crop failed the people starved  and the rest of the English speaking  world felt constrained to send relief.  Canada, with its vast extent of territory, its diverse soil, and-its diverse  climate, is hardly likely to have to go  through.a similar experience; but it  is not alone the welfare of our own  domain that we have to consider in  these matters, but the demand that is  likely to arise elsewhere, a demand  that has to be satisfied and a demand  that means gold to the country that  possesses the wherewithal.  A pamphlet of the Publications  Branch of the Department of Agriculture, Ottawa, which can be had free  for the more trouble of asking, deals  in a complete and comprehensive  manner with the subject. The Dominion Horticulturist, Mr. W.T. Ma-  coun, states that at the Central Experimental Farm one variety yielded  700 bushels and another variety on  the same soil only 154 bushels per  acre. This fact shows how important it is to know the variety best  suited to the soil. It is also shown  that it pays to import seed from cooler to warmer climates. Some of the  reliable early varieties, Mr. Macoun  says, are Irish Cobbler, Rochester  Rose and Early Ohio, and of medium  or later varieties, he gives the preference to Carman No. 1,'Gold Coin  Empire State, Green Mountain and  Wee' MacGregor. British varieties he  adds, .which have done well iri Canada, are Table Talk and Davies' Warrior- .      .  It would ;perhaps be as well to give  in brief a few of the suggestions  made in the pamphlet for the. best  cultivation of the potato:  - Sprouting' before '^planting srould  be avoided by keeping in a cool cellar. ...  The best results are obtained by  planting the sets immediately after  cutting.  If disease is discernible soak for  three hours in one pound of formalin  to thirty imperial gallons of water.  Marketable tubers so as to have at  least "three eyes to' a piece are the  best kind to set.  The most suitable soil is a rich,  deep, .friable: warm, sandy loam with  good natural drainage.  The more thoroughly the soil is  prepared the better the results will  be. ..  Delay planting as nearly as,possible to within a week of the last  frost. ;  .Plant the sets, four to five inches  deep for the main crop and 12 to 14  inches apart in rows two and a half  feet apart. '  As a rule the crop will increase  in proportion to the number of times  the potatoes are 'cultivated during  the growing season.  Pr   otect the tops from injury:  Eight to twelve ounces of Paris  green to forty gallons of water, or  two or three pounds of arsentae of  lead to the same quantity of water,  being- sprayed will destroy infesting  insects.  Use Bordeau mixture to control  early and, late ��������� blight. Three to  four sprayings will be required.  Bordeau mixture is made in the  proportion of 6 pounds blue-stone  and four pounds of lime to 40 gallons of water.  Forest fires are unnecessary, are  nearly always the result of carelessness, and may wipe out in an hour  what nature has. taken hundreds of  years to create.  They destroy-existing forests.  They destroy the possibility of  future forests.        -     '  They destroy a great 'market for  labor. f     '     ,  They  destroy homes.  They destroy prosperity.  ���������    They destroy lives.  Dou't start a forest fire.  Dig your potatoes in dry weather  and store in a dry, cool, well-ventilated cellar kept at a temperature of  from 33 to 35 degrees Fahrenheit  E. O.
