It is expected  that the charter, will be forthcoming in the course of a few weeks,  as the secretary is busy at the preliminary work with all zest. The  forming of the Board marks another step, forward in the formation of a business centre for Huntingdon.  Do all neighbors of^fhe little  town realize the immense strides  that place is making this summer.

It is  likely a meeting will be held thi3  week and a delegate ���������appointed.  Conversation with several- of . the  leading citizenjs of the town this  week led a .representative), of "this  paper to understand that it wad  the intention to send a delegate.  It is also the intention to extendi  an invitation to the bureau to hold  its next meeting in' Abbotsford.

Oar Shibboleth���������Velthar foe nor agi������'  tho   Government.  FRIDAY,    AUG. 9    1912  The provincial government has  appointed a commission to look  into the form of 'municipal govern  mint and hold meetings throughout the province. Presumably this  commission will look into matteru  with a view of having government by commission.  Now it is true that the present  method  of municipal government  is an  almost failure in many respects.   The  ������rural   municipalities  might be cited as  examples of   thia  Our idea of government is. to give  to each individual a  "fair shake.'1  That means   a   good road  to his  property, which is probably .the,ultimate objects of .all rural municipal government.   Now if some system can be carried out successfully  so as to give us good roads���������not  good main roads particularly, but  also    good    side   roada���������then the  commission shall not have sat  in  vain. '  It is well known fact that   the  Praser  Valley,. owing  to  climatic  and soil.conditions, is a hard place  for the  building and maintaining  of roads.   It is' pur contention that  all property holders .who pay JLaxes.  and they all'do, should have   a good  road to-their property.     The    a-  mount of  taxes collected in    the |  majority: of municipalities of   the  Praser Valley is not sufficient to  build  and  maintain* the class    of  road that the people are -entitled  to.   The.taxes in the majority   of  cases  are  high  as  the  property  holder can  pay an3 at the same  time make   a  living :ptt his ranch.  It is of course   a   new country,  and   is   opening   up   very  quickly  and roads there must be.  In  many  cases  the government:  comes to the assistance of the mun  icipalities in taking care of one or  two of the main, roada through ihe  Valley, but.that is not enough.   To  day there are settlers:in the Praser  Valley living within five miles of  the   main   roads | who   are   almost  compelled  to  pack  their winter's  food in  on their, back.   They pay  taxes���������surely not' for such  a privilege.   There  is- either  something  radically   wrong   about   our   road  building or the form of municipal  government.  The ery on the part of some people is to "borrow money" for road  building, but the people are not  in imany cases educated up to that  method. Until such time as there  is a uniform and systematic recog  nised style of road that will withstand climatic conditions it may be  just as well that the majority .are  not in favor of borrowing money  for thia purpoBe.  Will the commission help us remedy existing conditions  HIGHWAY  BY-LAW  The  Reeve  and  Council  of. th������  .Co;r;por.ation  of    the    District , of  Matsqui, enacts as-follows:���������,..

As a ratepayer, he is entitled to the best roads that  can be made with that money. When culverts are washed  out, and the road'rendered impassable, he not only suffers  inconvenience but may also be caused financial loss by  inability to get necessary supplies in time for spring planting.

Whenever the farmers  In  any community  become successful  enough, horsemen  to   replace   their   grade   mares   with  good Percheron matrons, the demand  is   for   a   distinctly   better   class   of  stallions.    The , effects   are   already  manifest  In   this  year's  Importation.  Importers are unanimous in declaring  that   during   last   season    the   best  horses   sold   must  readily.    The   inferior ones were hard to dispose of  at any price.   Buyers who are looking  for sires, are after real draft horses.  Size,    masslveness,    soundness,    and  good   feet   and   legs   are   being   emphasized, and it is Immaterial whether  the horse  is  imported or Canadian-  bred, if he has the necessary qualifications.  The Importation of fewer horses, of  higher class, is In direct response to  this well-defined feeling among buyers. Everything considered the trade  promises to be strong, with slightly  higher prices for first-class, sound  stock, with more animals going directly Into the hands of good farmers  than ever before.

One good way  of killing.out a patch of it is to cover  the patch..with a thick layer of straw.  Old, half-rotted stiaw is best, as this  entirely keeps out. air and light.

We all know that it is' the  most essential element or combination of elements that goes towards  maintaining life.' Yet notwithstanding  this fact not ten out of a thousand  make suitable provision for supplying air to their live stock or to themselves during the cold seasons of the  year. ' With cool weather advancing  and winter not far off we ought to  give this matter serious consideration and provide a means of supplying fresh air to all live stock during  the period when it must be stabled.  We have a responsibility in seeing  to it that plenty of fresh air is supplied for the members of the house-'  hold; many people unwittingly do  themselves great harm by sleeping in  close, unventilated bedrooms.  ^mssBaBBMsmsmaaBmmm  Busslau Wheat Crop  A telegram from the International  Agricultural Institute, Rome, reports  1911 wheat crop in Russia' in Europe  to be 554,330,000 bushels. In June,  1911, the total Russian wheat crop  for 1910 was finally estimated at  836,240,000 bushels. By a previous  official estimate the production for  Russia in Asia was placed at 95,-,  769,000 bushels, leaving for Russia in  Europe, 740,471,000. This is 186,141,-  000 in excess of this ye:*'s figures.  The total production of all the countries reported to the Institute to date  is 98.3 per cent, of the figures finally  reported for the same countries last  year. Broomhall's report, November,  says threshing' yields for Russian  wheat are poor both in quality and  quantity even in best districts, and.  arrivals of wheat at ports very small.  USJE COMMON SENSE  What does a farmer, or, for that  matter, any ' other practical keeper,  care for fancy feathers and combs, or  records of anything but eggs and  early maturity? All the foolishly high  prices paid for fancy birds are paid  by fancy breeders to fancy breeders  only and the.shows of such birds interest tbiS-'class of poultry men only.  Stable  Manure  When   using   stable   or   farmyard  manure on a large scale, it is found  to   give   the   best   results   if  applied  direct  to   the  land;   and  farmers   in  districts   where   agriculture   is   advanced   now   treat   their   manure   in  this way.    If it is required to well rot  the manure, the plan is to put it  in a shed and stack it, mixing with it  any   waste  straw  or 'other vegetable  matter. Arrangements should also be  made to  save  the   urine.    When  the  manure  is   stacked   in   any   quantity,  heat  is  quickly   generated,  and   this  destroys most of tho larvae of insects  and  seeds  of weeds,   but, of course,  there are  some of  the harder seed's  which, if not exposed to considerable  heat, will still grow If put on to the  land.  Corn on the Prairies.   '  There, must be hundreds of plants  useful and ornamental now flourishing all over the Canadian prairie,  which were not many years ago asserted imposisble of growth in-  these cold latitudes. Indeed, wheat  raising is now the leading Industry,  in many parts where the idea' of growing It met with ridicule not so' very  long ago. /The cultivation of the land,-  however, by. human hands, raises the.  average winter temperature several'  degrees, and much in. the way of plant  growth can be accomplished now, that  was impossible then.  Bearing in mind the fact that  similar assertions as to the impossibility of growing corn in many of the  northern States have been proved by  experience to be without foundation,  it may be hoped that before very long  corn may be a leading product of the  prairie provinces of Canada. This  will be a boon Indeed for the swine  industry, as noije know better than  those who have lived in the corn belt.

This "notion   is    an  erroneous one.    It is absolutely certain,   high   authorities   contend,   that  the sands of, all the great deserts have  been-formed by the disintegration of the solid., rocks on which  "they  rest.    Desert. sands correspond  in all respects, so far as their mode of  origin is concerned, to the dust and  sand   that accumulates  on  our high  roads   in   summer.    All   deserts, are  situated  where  the  winds  from, the  ocean, before reaching them, are exhausted of their moisture by passing  over, mountains or across extensive  tracts of land.

All   of! us   sometimes   get  crooked,  moods, and then we are fit company  for no o������e. > Our best friends irritate  us; the inost harmless remarks made,  by certain members of our family stir  us  to  dire  annoyance,  and  although  we may have the self-control to .hold  our   tongues,   our   looks   speak   such  volumes   for  us   that  everyone   feeld  uneasy.     If   we   wish   to  spare   ourselves much remorse, and other people  a  great  deal  of  unpleasantness,  we  shall hasten on these occasions to a  spot as far removed from our fellow-  mortals as we can manage.    Crooked  moods   have   a    wonderful    way   of  straightening    themselves    out    into  peace and beauty under the influence  of   the   pure   fresh   air   of   the   open  country;-   our    petty    troubles    drop  away  from  us  like last  year's  dead  leaves from a budding oak, and bur  tired   eyes   lose   their   feverish   ache  when we: have the grass to look at.  "You  must remove  every  stick  of  furniture and every hit pf litter from  the  house,   dust  away   the  cobwebs,  and then giver.every  Inch of the  Interior a heavy dressing-with Penetras,  Slderoleum,  or  whatever preparation  you use  (and I believe they ��������� are all  very- much   alike,   in   effect,   at   any  rate), dabbing it on thickly in corners  and perch sockets, and taking special  care to run it into all'cracks"and crevices,  where  the  red   mite  takes  his  midday siesta.    When you have done  every  inch  of  woodwork  inside  and  out ��������� perches, nest-boxes, aiid other  utensils ��������� you can go,home and get  the stuff off your hands aad clothes,  content   ln   the   knowledge   that   the  red mite host is routed and the hens  will sleep.sounder for the future."  Secure Good Potatoes  This is the time to make sure of  seed potatoes for next season's crop.  A little - trouble taken In selecting  and storing a.t sufficient quantity for  seed will save untold, worry and expense next spring. ' Don't be satisfied  with planting small potatoes, for these  are sure to produce a poorer crop  than will be found, if larger seed Is  used. The best seed is of a medium  size, of the even smooth sort, free  from scabs or rust, and with a comparatively shallow eye. Store this  seed where it will keep ^untll  spring, and you will feel'satisfied-at  not having ��������� to select- or perhaps buy  the seed when you-should'be planting.  Stable Fixtures  Stable-fixtures for the convenience  of the stockman ana for the "comfort  of, the   stock   are   becoming- an   important factor  in   barn   construction.  No longer is the barn or stable completed when  the four  walls  and  the  roof have been erected.    In fact, now  in the modern barn  the interior fixtures demand the greatest skill.    To  .put in- the  stable   fittings   that  will  allow the greatest" degree of comfort  to the animal, combined with hygienic  surroundings and yet be so fitted as  to cut labor down  to  the minimum,  is the aim of the stockman.'  To secure  light and free circulation of air requires not only large windows and a  .good    ventilation    system,    but    the  whole Interior of the barn should be  comparatively free from obstruction.  Milk. Production of Holstciu Cattle  So   much   attention   is   now   being  paid to the milk yields of cattle that  a few figures illustrating the capabi-   ���������  lities of Holstein  cattle  at the  pail  may   not   be    uninteresting.     In   a  pamphlet it is stated that the average  yields are, "as -a rule 860, gallons and  over,  when   all   animals,   also   those  who have calved for the first time, are  included. Occasionally the milk yield  goes as,high as 2,150 gallons."   That  these figures are not given at a high  computation Is evidenced  by the results of reliable trials carried out in  America at the Wisconsin State Experiment Station  in   1907,  when  Co-  lantha 4th's Johanna'gave in one year  27,432.5  lbs.   (2.743  gallons)   of  milk  containing 8,998.256 pounds of fat. It  it claimed for this cow that she holds  the   world's   official   record   for   the  production of butterfat for 7 days, 80  days, 60 days, and 365 days.  Plush Returns to Favor.  The forecaster of fashions tells  us that there is to be a reappearance  of plush t with the advent of really  cold weather. The new plush in its  best grades will bear a close resemblance to real seal fur. Coats of  this texture are to, be trimmed with  fine braids and handsome buttons,  and even those who can boast of  sables will not consider them be-  neath. their, disnity..-  Good Way to Raise Pcnchea  Under ordinary conditions a large  percentage of peach and plum pits  will germinate in spring if planted  the fall previous. Those which the  frost does not split can be cracked in  spring and will then germinate satisfactorily.  The best commercial peaches are  Yellow St. John, Early Crawford and  Alberta. Crosby and Fitzgerald are  hardier and might be more suited to  a colder locality.  Some of the best plums are Brad-  shaw, Shipper's Pride, Lombard;  Grand Duke, Reine Claude.  Plush, lined with exquisite Batln  and filmy chiffon frills, is to be made  up into the smartest of evening coats.  A lighter make of plush, called Turkish or panne Liberty plush, is to bo  introduced for house gowns, blouses  and hats. That plush, will be generally used for children's wraps and  bonnets is a foregone conclusion, as  no fabric is prettier or more effective  for little folks.  ik THS ABBOTSFORD POST,  t   ...  ."? 3fMMd  ELECTING DELEGATES TO  FRASER VALLEY BUREAU  The lGth of August-will see a  large delegation from all >parta of  the Valley to, Mission City. The  different Boards of Trade and Mun  icipal councils are electing; delo '  gates toi'the meeting, and there ib  going to be something doing in  the way of complete organisation  amd the planning of work for the  'future.  It  is  likely there will  bo .some  thirty or  more  delegates, besides  those who will attend for the purpose of becoming'acquainted with  the method aof the B.ureau.   TheBc  delegates will in most cases c'omo  to further  the  good work  along  and  assist in  the organization  of  ' same.   Every small town in Maple  Ridge will, send   a   delegate���������one  , coming from each of the following  places���������Ruskin, Whom nock, ^laney,  and Hammond, ione from the Haney  Boa/rd  of Trade and  also one  from     the    Hammiond     Board   of  Trade.   The Maple Ridge  Council  intend  sending  two delegates,  as  does   also   the -Matafcrui   Council,  while the  Sumas Council will  attend in   a   body according to "the  motion   passed   at   last   meeting.  The newly-elected Sumas-Hunting-  do.n Board, of Trade will send five  delegates.   Matsqui-Sumas     Board  of Trade will also send a delegate  ot" two.   It will thus be seen that  the central part of the Fraser Valley .will  be  well  represented.   Of  course   the   municipalities "to   the  west of Maple-Ridge and Matsqui  will  send  their regular quota    of  delegates  as  heretofore,   while  it  is   expected   that   Chilliwack   and  Kent will also be riot behind the  other places.  Mr. J. D. Taylor, M. P., has accepted am invitation to be present.  ' The first session, will be held in  the morning commencing ait'11.30;  another session will be held in the  a'-'tain^ in.   During   the    day   'the  meet>ng  will  be  thrown open   to  the  general   public  when   anyone  having  ideas    that    he    believes  would   be   of  benefit  to  the  bureau wwill have an opportunity to  present them, or discuss the questions   already   taken   up   by.   the  bureau.  The Mission City Board of Trade  and the Mission Council will endeavor ta make the delegates at  home ian this particular occasion.  It is not! fior this paper to specify,  but it is understood that a programme has been mapped out that  will make the delegates .remember  their visit to Mission City on August 16th, 1912.    .

AN UNEXPECTED BOOST  FARMERS'PIG-NIG  ON AUGUST 1STH  On the 16th of this month the  farmers of Sumas municipality will  hold high carnival at a pjenic Lo  be held at Mrs. Campbell's grove.  It -is expected that the Farmer's  Institute'Will-send several speakers to enliven the day with some  good advice on the best methods  of farming. A grand time is ex.  pected and it is hoped that a lot  of ,the Abbotsford people will be  present to enjoy rural life for one  day at least!  RECEIVE BIG GRANT  FROM ^GOVERNMENT  (Continued Prom Page One)  volumes of correspondence that  has passed between, the officers of  the association and the provincial  government, no great hopes weiu  held out as the result of. a visit  to Victoria.  Great preparation's are now being made for the forthcoming e\-  on Thursday and Friday, Sept. HO  and 27tth. Mr. A.'L. Bates, the energetic secretary, assisted by Mrs.  Bates, have compiled the prize  list, and farms of entry for exhibits can .shortly be obtained from  him The committee will at once  issue posters relating to the ex-'  hibition and it behoves all interested in their district to get in and  put up a good s'hVw, for there is  no doubt that a good agricultural exhibit is the best possible ad  vertisement  a  district can have.  BRO. COLLINS GOES NORTH  The' Huntingdon  Star states  "it  is     rumored     that the Abbotsford  Fair ���������  will be postponed until        a  date   not   specified."   Then   it   re-  marks tiliat it is too bad "that the  the Huntingdon Farmers' Institute  did mot take hold of this fair proposition  in  the  first place."  It io  true that the Abb.otsford Fair has  been relegated to the backgrounds  for'the present owing to the difficulty.of getting a   charter and also because of a   little difference of  opinion on the part of those    pro  moting it.  Now it iriattens not who    takes  charge of a   fair for this part     of  the Valley, whether" it be the Abbotsford people or the Huntingdon  people so long as it is  a   success,  If the Huntingdon Farmers' Institute would only take up the matter  now and carry i,t on to   a   success  ful issue, the Post would be delighted and pass to the mall the encon  iums that might be coming to them  and further than that would do all  it     was possible     to help     along  good public institution. Even     .at  this late date it is not too late   to  get exceedingly busy and rush the  fair along.   The Post would almost  guarantee  it  Avould  be a   success  as m odou'bt a . great many Abbots  ford people would heip.   Last year  Abbotsford   had   a   fine   fair���������one  of the. best in the Fraser Valiuy,  the organization work was all done  in the course of a   month or six  weeks.   Now is a   good time    for  the Star, tor get rid of those silver'  medals it promised, and .no doubt  has on hand.   It IS- UP TO  YOU  KTAR****   to   GET   EXTREMELY  BUSY   OR   KEEP  AWFULLY  QUIET. ������������������' -     '  There arc some spots in the government road building program  which give satisfaction to the tax  ipaycr. Hon. fflhomas '.Taylor, in  the limitations in which he is circumscribed by the Bowser political machine, is making good progress in parts of the province with  his pet scheme, the trans-provincial highway. He is building new  .roads and improving old ones, and  at intervals it may .be found thai  his superintendents d ogive the  major portion of their time Loroad  building rather than to filing up  the voters' lists.  One; of the u-eal road builders in  the employ of the Public Works  Department, is A. A. Cruickshank,  wh ois in' charge of tire Fraser Valley division, as it might be called,  of that highway. I have watched  the progress of the' work of Mr.  Cruichs'kank in the district west  of Chilliwack and better road build  ing is .not to be found in the .province.-. Mr. Cruickshank evidently  understands and has at'heart.the  work of road building, and the pro  gress that has been made upon hi&  diyisiojn should bring satisfaction  to everyone who has occasion to  use the road. .'��������� <   ���������  At i&umas Lake a (fine rock'  crushing and quarrying plant has  been installed and \its products  have been judiciously used both  east and west, so that' all the com-  pleted work will compare favorao  ly with any roadway in the province, or, for that matter, in any  ���������province. Mr. Cruickshank' also  has widened the roads and reduced grades to an extent that will  give joy to the heart of a motorist or teamster.  These remarks are occasioned bo -  cause the writer and most ovf his  readers do appreciate faithful service to the public when it is rendered, and I believe that once in a  while a word of encouragement  is due- the men who go about their  duties in the expenditure of public money as they would in hand-'  ling their own.  The,work'being conducted under  the supervision of Mr. Cruickshank  will bring credit to himself and  the department of which he is an  employee, and it will bring satisfaction to all who may have occasion to use the road. I would  like to recommend to^'-Hon. Thomas  Taylor the -employment - of such  men throughout the? road building  operations of the province.���������Sunset.  mlders  A New Line for Abbotsford  1 ��������� i  >       * ' r '  Inside lock sets front door locks,   .,���������  .store door handles, in brass finish.   .  .
