FRIDAY, AUG.   ,,1920 13  "���������rt^f^^Siuo  $1.00 per Year.  There is no bettor adverli'so'iuunl  than to lie a prize winner at the Kail  Fairs {ind no crop .on the '1'a'nn. can  be exhibited to better advantage than  (.he cereal crop. To attain' the best  results a'sp'ccial plot should'bo maintained and kept, 'thoroughly clean,  free- from weeds and all impurities.  Harvesting should be done by hand,  keeping the sheaves as neat and as  straight, as   possible.  Kirsl and foremost the grain iri tho  shoal' must not be weathered,'it must.  be perfectly dry and of good.color  The best results are obtained by I he  use of slightly immature straw, as  it. will be found to he less brittle and  easier to handle. The straw should  be spread in layers in the sun to dry;  the sun will bleach the straw as .well  as dry it. Use- only straight, uniform straws to malce (he sheaf; two  or- throe sheaves should be collected  in the field to allow for waste.'  The majority of persons have the  idea that all the straws should bo the  same length and the heads all placed  on the same level. This would dive  us the square head in which, whan  tied, the majority of the si raws-  would break off below the bead. The  ideal sheaf has a rounded head with  a gradual curve. This rounded head  is procured by allowing the central  straws to stand a little higher than  the surrounding straws and each layer of heads that arc added, to gradually slope away from the centre. The  large sheaf may be conveniently form  ed by li'rst making a number.of.small  .-sheaves and then placing them together as though they were indivdual  heads, gradually sloping them off in  the same manner. To finish the sheaf  a laver of indiviual heads should be  placed around the whole producing  a finished exhibitionsheaf. All the  loose leaves should be plucked off  the outside of the sheaf with a jack-  knife leaving only the white shining  straws,' and all heads that do not  conform to the symmetry of the head  may be cut off, leaving a perfect sheaf  Colored ribbon about 1-2 to 3-4 inches wide may be used with good effect to cover the binding strings.  The remainder of the plot should  be threshed by hand. ' This will form  the bulk sample for the Fair. If the  plot was kept pure in the field there  will be very little that will'need to  be done to the threshed sample. A  good fanning mill will remove all the  shrunken and small kernels, all chaff  and dirt. The fanning mill must be  clean, many an excellent sample has  been ruined by a dirty fanning mill.  Thoroughness is the secret of a good  SUCCESSFUL  FLOWtiK  SHOW  Despite many difficulties.the (lower  show  promoted'by the. Matsqui  Women's Institute was held on Wednesday last and proved very successful.  It was almost'cancelled because of  mosquitoes, it almost -perished under  'lhe .objection of'drought. The ladies  in charge were weighed down by  their inexperience, and the high  lights who should have graede the  opening ceremony wore unable' to  appear with their beams and blessings, yet every stroke was successful,  every (able a scheme of beauty.  ' Mrs Phiuncy, as president, in  graceful little speech mentioned the  dilUo.ulties and made no apologies  because none were necessary. Hugo  banks of (knvers against the wall,  of every, hue and variety a garden  can off op, represented the inter-institute display- competition, where  Mission led in mass of color and number of flowers. Both Mission and  i-Uuzic contributed largely to the success of the show.  For' the best display of the institute colors, yellow, white.and green,  JIalaic gained the honors, with a  pretty display of daisies and yellow  carnations shown   by Mrs.-Fripp.  Mrs. Solloway of Misison iCyt took  firsts in' both'annual" and--perennial  blooms, with a line collection'^ arrayed in mossy trays. The queen of  the show, however, was the sweet  .pea, where every conceivable shade  was" arrayed with a rare taste for  color ��������� harmony along the big table,  the prize for' this most popular class  going to Mrs. Millar for an epergne  of  lovely  four-bloomed  stems.

He does this  without thinking what he says or docs  not know what if means in the true  souse as it is carried out in Russia  at the present day.', Every man is at  liberty to think what he likes so  long; as it  is not contrary to the law  There  return  is  no need  to  sanity.  of  panic to effect  .There is no need  for shut down of industry and unemployment to restore ourselves to a  sound basis, in fact, such a pro-  gramme would invite grave results  at a time when men's minds arc filled  with the poisons of unrestricted pro-  Mat'squi  Prie  List  from   Page Three  paganda, of destruction, and of re--  of the land or does not hurt his .volution, so freely introduced during  neighbor. Put in this country we ,the past .few years,  almost feel like saying, that if a man  wants to bo a Dolskie he had better  hike for Russia and find out for himself a thorough  knowledge    of ..the  conditions ast hey .exist before he says  Rolskie.    Lenine should have a fair  idea of what Bolshevism mean's, and  here is what .he says:  "Freedom is a  borgeois  notion,  devised  as  a  cloak  under which  to  hide the spectre of  economic  slavery.    Russia  must get  rid of the notion that happiness is to  be attained by letting every man do  as he likes.       An    iron    government  composed of a few unshrinking men  with clear minds and emphatic class  consciousness  is  what Russia wants  and what, happily, Russia has .    ���������.    .  Shirking and  grumbling are as  bad  forms of treason as intriguing    with  the White    reactionaries,    and    one  treason  will be as sharply punished  ae the other."  - If grumbling were punishable    in  Canada where would half or more of  us be at the present time?    We ought,  to get at the genuine Bolshevist idea.  Even if it were admitted that he were  right  about  Russia,   Nero   could   excuse himself in exactly the same fashion,  wherefore determine to impress  the rest of the world into a habitual  state of massacre?    It would be intensely funny df it were not so tragic.  Imagine sane men and women on this  continent advocating a system which  these leaders admit'is a tyranny, is  only fit for children and uneducated  people, and can only be carried on by  an   iron   government   of   a   few   unshrinking men���������unshrinking because1  they do  not hesitate to murder and '  massacre and who consider any criticism   and   shirking  or  grumbling  at  their iron-handed    methods,    treason  fittingly punished by death.

Strikes in  basic industry,  land restricted production, with con-  ' sequent     apparent    'expensive,     but  determination  and  sacrifice will   enable us to continue. Of course, sacrifice must be universal.    It can not be  made to apply to part of the people  only.     Instead of constantly increasing wages in an effort to overtake the  cost of living, we must .halt the onward march of money wage and secure the balance    through    efficient  production  and     consequent    higher  real wage.-   Instead of struggling to  increase   production   by  using   more  people we must do more work with  less people.   .  The morale of the nation and of  the world is low. It will not be  raised by a "don't care" attitude. It  j can'be raised by encouragement and  by the determination of all the people to think'-right do right, and work  right.

Yet if any attempt! juc]gm,ent   we   have>   co  by  the  Allies   to  interfere  outside  is   made  with shipments of arms from Germany to Russia, the cry of "blockade" is raised.  Things in general may.not be just  right, these days but the main idea is  to keep on driving ahead. Some uncertainty as to the immediate future  seem* to have entered the-mind of  some of the public, but there is no  danger, it is declared, if the people  will keep their heads cool and their  bodies hot from labor.- Stay on the  lob and do all you can, is the immediate task for the average man���������  and the average man is about everybody.  We have  learned  to really understand  the meaning of morale during  the past few years, as applied to warfare.     Unfortunately, we    have    not  quite accepted it as a necessity of a  peace time program. Today, our restlessness is partly due to the low morale existing.       Because    nerves    are  i'n\ye(\, because there is more of leisure,  because work Ls looked upon as  something undesirable,    because    extravagance is    rampant,    production  curbed, and  strikes continue to disturb any trend, to more normal conditions, it is easy to say, with morale  low, "What's the use?"  Of course that is just the state of  mind desired by those who take joy  in creating or continuing feverish  and restless conditions. Real men will  fight  hardest when  hardest pressed.  use  the best  mbincd with  strict attention to the work in hand  and the world will soon be back on  the old job again���������everything working as near perfect as any human  devised system can be expected.  40.  41.  42.  4 3.  44.  46.  47.  48.  49.  50.  51.  5'2.  53.  54.  55.  56.  57.

The  pint  is  regulated    in  price,  bringing the same amount as  the 2-5 ha Hock.

A  law will  go into effect in California  this rail prohibiting Japanese    from  leasing land for a longer period than  one year and which    will    abrogate  those  leases already made    for     9 9  years and  under.    It has been    the  ���������"prevailing  custom  in   California  for  thoJapanese to make 9 9 year leases,  which  to all intents and purposes is  equivalent lo buying the    land    outright.     Under   this  system   the  wily  boys  have succeeded in getting control   of   the   greater   portion   of   the  most productive land in the state. It  is also being noted by the secret ser-  '   vice  department  of  the  government  that  the  Japanese have  control     of  ���������U nearly all the vantage points such as  '���������tops of hills and. other places where  .high   power  cannon   could   dominate  the surrounding country,,    much    the  same way as the Germans carried on  their, nefarious    work    among    the  French.    The state of California    is  now" thoroughly aroused and the law  (hot goes into effect this fair will in  nil  probability, cause an open break  with Japan.Thus it will now be clearly seen-why the United States could  not curtail her    naval    construction  programme upon the signing of the  armstiee  and   why  she    would     not  commit herself to a policy which practically places China under the domination  of Japan.    It transpires    that.

The  wily Japs have played one nation a-  gainst. the other until they have placed  themselves in position to pursue  an aggressive policy without molestation.    They  have assumed  control  of the Chinese Eastern railway    and  have occupied Saghalien and much of  the maratime province of Siberia. It  is quite evident to all those who read  that the Japs are preparing to carry  out a program of expansion and they  are not particular   whose      territory  they invade, and it is easy to see that  the  United   States  will,  before  very  'long  be   called   upon   to  defend   her  rights in the Pacific.  Japanese should take no greater  privileges in any other country than  they are willing to give in their own  country to aliens Who ever heard of  a white man being allowed to hold  land in Japan.���������Exchange  The funeral of the late Soffia Moi  of Matsqui, took place from the Lutheran church last week, Rev.
