The deceased lady died suddenly on Saturday morning  ���������last, with only "a few minutes  illness.  The church services were  held in the Presbyterian church  Mission City, oh Tuesday afternoon, the Rev. Dr. Dunn, Rev.  C. McDiarmid and Rev.. J. W.  Weatherdon conducting the services.

Clark and Miss Alice to mourn:  her sudden demise.'  M. C. TALKS ABOUT POTATOES  We do not intend to place ourselves in the position of the fabled man  that carried his ass over the river,  instead of riding over, on its back, in  -order that he might please his critics.  "We have called attention.to theneed  of achange in potato market methods  here.  We have ben criticised by a Vancouver potato dealer because we declined to help him knock the bottom out ������f this market, and he has  kindly pointed out our duties as he  sees them. But we are not going to  let this interfere with our duty as  we see it ���������  We are obliged to those who write  to  us,  Avhether     complimentary    or  otherwise.    The glut in the new potato market here a week ago was due  to the haste of shippers to take advantage of  the opening  high prices,  the market becoming sour.       There  mature potatoes from B. C. results In  the market!) ocoming sour.       There  has been a loss on some shipments of  between 20 and 4 0 per cent, through  with ring and rot    and    small-sized  potatoes which could well have been  avoided. Potatoes will bes carce this  year and later on this policy for B.C.  shippers to keep off car-lot shipments'  of potatoes until maturity, when the  stock   will  wait   for  the  market  ro  eventuate.    One   dealer  quoting  ten.  dollars under the market was vexed -  because wer efused to assist him with  his sales on this market.    The mar leal then being overloaded the dealers  would   not   buy  at  any  price,   until  such time as the surplus moved.  Edmonton and district are digging  their potatoes owing to frost.  When we send out warnings of a  glutted market anywhere on the  prairies we expect shippers to be governed by them, and we will continue  to refuse to help in any effort that  will makematters worse. We dislike  unwarranted high prices, but are just  'as strong against unwarranted low  prices. A fair market is our golden  rule.  Mr. Dan McKenzie, government  road foreman, who has been in  charge of the main road of this district for three years, is resigning his  position at the end of this week. Mr.  McKenzie's intention is to join .the  ship builders, where he can work as  a skilled artizan of experience.  Mrs. Kerr came over with her  family on a visit to her father, Mr.  E. M.

There has been considerable  dissatisfaction in Maple Ridge  in regard to the maintenance of  tiie through road. Mr. Oliver  after the visit of the members  of the Maple Ridge council to  Victoria.last week thought . it  was about time that he investigated matters for himself.' Accompanied by members of the  council, I-I. L. Johnstone and  Maxwell Smith the premier  drove over the road.  It appears that   the   government divided the   River-  Road  they claim in   agreement  with  the Maple Ridge   council,   the  government   taking   the    five  miles from the red bridge and  Maple Ridge the rest'   of   the  road to I-Ianey.     The   govern-  set to work according   to   the  agreement and put the road in  repair.    Be it said to the credit  of the road foreman   and   the  Oliver government that portion  of the road has been improved  very much and with the exception of two or three places is at  the present time   in   excellent  shape, considering the width of  the road.    These few places it  is understood will this week be  attended to.    At   the   western  end of the government share is  placed the sign      "West Point,  Dept. of Public Works",erected  no doubt by the government authorities.    Between    that   and  I-l'aney the road has been    repaired and was this   week   in  fair condition, but not quite as  good as the government share.  The contention that the government took the half requiring the least improvement may  be all correct and may not." Tt  is about six of one and half a  dozen of the other. But why  should the government ask the  municipality of Maple Ridge1 to  maintain what to all intents  and.purposes is now considered  a public highway, not a municipal road, is where the sore  point really is. For the present  the Dewdney Trunk road is :-i-  baudoned through Maple Ridg'j  and the River road used instead.  It is reported that Premier  Oliver was well satisfied with  the work done and thought the  road had never been in better  shape, but it is likely that the  Maple Ridge portion will be  given a grant to help place it in  better shape.  Just as .Ye.'Editor met the  government party near, the red  bridge on Monday Mr, Johnstone appeared to be giving the  Premier who was in the front  seat, and Mr. Maxwell Smith,  who sat behind alone, the benefit of a rather rough piece of  road. As we turned off we  were under the impression,���������of  course we had just a glimpse-  that the hatlessMr. Smith was  'holding on to the roof.'  Premier Oliver and party returned to Vancouver by the  Yale road in the evening.  Pte.  Robert  Gillen   was  home  for  the week end.  IAI i la u Mains has boon visiting  frlonds here.  Rev. Mr. and Mrs. Campbell and  Miss Grace Huberts spent the week  (Mid in.f.Abbotsford. Rev. Mr. Campbell and Rev. Robertson exchanged  pulpits  on   Sunday.

E. R.  and will spend it in Vancouver.  Mrs. Frank Gordon has moved to  Vernon where her husband is, his  health will not allow liim to live in  these  parts  any  longer.  Mrs. McMenemy and Mrs. Coogan  spent two days in Vancouver this  week.  The Misses ,Steede spent a day at  White Rock this week, inotoing down  with  Mr. Wagstaff.  Two auto loads of young men and  their lady friends from Sumas took  t trip to White Rock on Sunday.  Mrs. Dan Emery was the guest of  Mrs. Dan Smith this week.  Mrs. Arthur Taylor and her daughter visited in Vancouver last week.  Mrs. Thomas and Mrs. Clyde are  spending a few weeks with her sister  and mother at Skyhomisli and" Bellingham.  The ladies aid was held at the  home of Mrs. Alex McCallum on  Wednesday, with a good attendance.  Arrangements were made for starting work for their bazaar. All the  ladies interested will meet at the  home of Mrs. McMenemy on Tuesday  evening.  Emily Alanson is back already  visiting with   Irene King.  Mrs. Jones and children are down  from Vancouver for a few days with  Mr. Jones, the superintendent at the  mill.  The girls look very nice in their  dark bloomers and white middies  playing basket ball but it has taken,  them a long time to got started.  The residents of Abbotsford will  be pleased to -know the teachers are  all coming back for another year.

Dear Treasurer:  Very  many  thanks   for   the  sum  Dyke Meeting  Held at Nicomen  According to arranged plan  Premier Oliver and Mr.; F. J3.  Stacey, M. P. for Westminster,  held a meeting in the Nicomen  school on Monday afternoon to  consider the dyking of the lands  of Nicomen Island. ;-'-;  The matter was thoroughly  gone into from both a federel;  and provincial point of view but  no definite decision was arrived  at between the two ' governments although it would appear  the provincial government was  willing to .go ahead with the  dyking if the federal government would build wingdams to  divert the present course of the  river so as to protect the shore.  There are over 7000 acres of  valuable land on Nicomen IB-  land and were it not for the  danger of high water would be  put under intense cultivation as  it is very productive. This year  the water flooded a very large  portion and the loss was considerable destroying the work  of years of hard labor. It is  understood that the farmers are  very much of one mind in regard to the increased'taxation  were proper protection - given  from the annual frivolities of  old Father Fraser. At; present  the district is one of the most  prosperous of the Fraser Valley'  but the fear of high water prevents the settlers from making  the improvements that they  would like.  Now that the two governments have met and discused  the matter with the farmers it-  is hoped ' some amicable arrangement may be found that  will give protection.  of $12 the monthly subscription from  the Abbotsford Red Cross for the  Prisoners of War fund. I think you  will like to know that I had a long  letter yesterday from L./Cpl. R. W.  Sutherns from Holland. He says' he  is glad ho Is to he out of that "a-  bomination of desolation", Germany,  He expresses great gratitude for all  that has been done for him.

Bates, Editor' and Proprietor  FRIDAY, AUGUST 16,. 191S  ���������."Forward to the Farm"' is  the now idea being pushed.in  the .United States and with a  view to fostering the movement;  a farm land .merchants' association lias been inaugurated,  the immediate objects of which  will be to safeguard the buy eland improve the condition of  the farmer to the end that production may be speeded up.  The objects of the movement  are numerous but the main'are  the bettering of the farmers'  condition and looking towards  the end of the war when it is  expected that the', demand for  farm lands will be greater but  must have .the soldiers and others, placed upon the land without exploiting' the price of the  land.  If the' business men can inject a little more business into  the industry so that the' farmer will come to his own the  movement will certainly be a  beneficial one. Our soil produces abundance but the marketing is done in such a way that  the farmer does not get the  full result.  It is also intended to put a  stop to overspeculation of the  land and holding foi  prices.  Mr. Oliver is surrounded by a  cabinet which does not ��������� give  him the support to which he is  entitled.. Better remain in office as long as possible as at  the present the people do not  want elections. It may be how-  over that Premier Oliver does  not lack in vision'but sees that  the government that is well 'established in Victoria when tho  war is over has a good chance  of 'making good' during the  days of reconstruction.  Westminster Market  "Somewhere we read an editorial the other day that Vancouver .Island was thinking of  breaking away from the Dominion and paddling their own  canoe. The feeling lias always  been among'the little islanders  that the British Columbia sun  rose and set on their island, but  the rest of (he province kindly  let them have their belief without saying much. We believe  it would be a calamity if the  people did any more than to  think along this line. The motto of today for all parts of the  British Empire is to 'hang -together.'  higher  Now we see that F. C. Wade  has been appointed as agent-  general for the province and  will have his residence in old  London. We congratulate Mr.  Wade on his appointment'but  unfortunately we cannot say  that we congratulate the provincial government on having  made the appointment.  Our present government was  elected over the Bowser government on partly the strength of  there being no patronage. Of  course so far as the government  is concerned it has done by one  a fair reward for getting them  into power, as there is no doubt  that the tirade of abuse piled on  by the Vancouver Sun with Mr.  Wade as editor, and Mr. Wade's  stand on the platform had considerable to do with the turning of the people against the  Bowser government.  The then premier, Mr. Brewster, has passed away, but it  "was upon the same platform  the present government was elected, and it would appear that  the word, "patronage" is the  one word emblazoned in large  golden letters, upon which the  government is run. How wilt  the government answer to the  people when the government  record is plced before the people? We believe the people will  answer, 'fooled once but never  again with that bunch.'  The Sun, under present management, says Mr. .Wade will be  'watched sympathetically and  critically.'  "Some Mascot these Editors", was  the heading in a-daily newspaper, a  few days ago.

Daily Editors
Trip, to Franc
25 Candian editors front, daily papers have been in France, says the
Calgary lOyo-Opcnor. Important cable despatches have been appearing
in our dally press regarding their
movements. Their itinerary seems
to have revolved mostly round the
Champagne district,where they spent
most of their time inspecting the bottling works at Rhiems and the famous vats at Epernay. It cannot be
said of these gentlemen that they do
not know a good thing when they see
While in Paris he distinguished
party was received by Premier Clem-
enceau who made graceful speech
extolling the valor of the Canadian
soldier. A Calgary editor is supposed to have made the folowing.
Mr. Premier: On behalf of my
colleagues of the Candian Press I
thank you tor the courteous welcome
extended to us on the occasion of our
visit to your most beautiful city, in
some respects Paris has Toronto
beaten forty ways and I am not passing an idle -compliment when I say
that our western cities at home have
much to learn from yon. Your streets
appear to .be. well laid out. hike Calgary,m y home town, you have flic
advantage of a lino river (lowing
through your midst.alovely stream,
admirably 'adapted for carrying off
your sewerage. There ought to be
some good fishing in it, especially at
the moul'h' of  the sowers.
As 'regards the war, 1 am more
than gratified at the whole-souled
manner in which the French armies
are rendering what assistance they
can  in  the'prosecution  of  this  ter
rible war. When hostilities arc concluded I feel sure that the Canadians will be the first to recognize the
valuable support given the Allied
forces to the French troops. Your
soldiers, Mr. Premier, have fought
splendidly and have gained the ttit-
stiui.ed admiration of the Canadian
army. It would indeed be difficult
for us to achieve final and decisive
victory without their aid and speaking on behalf of the Canadian editors'
1 would ask you to convey to Generals Fofdi and Petain an expression
of our warm approval of the manner
in which they have handled their
men in situations which must have
been undoubtedly trying. . My colleagues have nothing but praise for
both generals.
As regards presentw ar conditions
1 think that the most vital point to
be defended���defended to the last
drop of blood���is the city of Uhienia.
Mere are stored vast accumulations
of priceless bottles, parked in subterranean tunnels extending for miles
and representing millions of money
and hundreds of thousands of important drunks. My colleagues and myself recntly visited Rhiems and drove
a salient into these bottles with much
success, retiring later on to a prepared position in the local hospital
No pains should be spared to protect
Rhiems. I understand they have a cathedral there also,t hough 1 cannot
recall  having noticed it.
We had the honor, Mr. Premier, of
lunching with your president, Monsieur Poincare, yesterday. He put up
a line feed. It was about as fine a
meal as I have eaten anywhere, He
showed us all over the Elysees Palace and allowed us to wash our
hands in the same bathroom where
Charlotte Corday stabbed Marat. It
was all very interesting. In the kitchen we found the chef chopping
meal, with the guillotine that was
used in the Place de la Concorde
during the Revolution of '93, the
identical one, in fact, that lopped
off the heads of Robespierre, Marie
Antionette and thousands of other
unfortunates. Our party appreciated very highly the compliment thus
paid us by your president in pointing out these and many other interesting relics of other days, and I feel
suret hat should he ever come over
to Canada our Governor-General
will be only too happy to reciprocate
by showing him the spot where the
Scotland Yard detective arrested Dr.
Crippcn and Ethel Leneve, Though
Canada may not have so many noble
old ruins to show .visitors as Europe
yet the Canadian Senate in session is
well worth the price of admission,,
especially when viewed by the pale
In conclusion, Mr. Premier, it will
no doubt amuse you to know that on
our way here one, of our members
made a wager with tire secretary,
that no Frenchman ever kept any
Scotch whiskey in his house. He
claimed that a Frenchman might
have all kinds,of wines and liqueurs
but no    whiskey.r    Our    secretary
claimed, on the other hand, that no
Frechmaii  would thus libel the Seol-
t.'sh 'nice,   which   provided   so   many

able numbers of men
belonging to Class.I under our Military Service Act, 1917; called out on active service in
our Canadian Expeditionary Force for the
defence of Canada under Our Proclamation

eluding the Order in Council duly passed on
April 20. last,
Or  have  deserted.
Or absented themselves without leave
from our Canadian Expeditionary Force,
And it is represented that the very serious
and unfortunate situation in which these men
find themselves is due in many cases to' the
fact that, notwithstanding the information and
warning contained in Our Proclamation aforesaid, they have misunderstood their duty or
obligation, or have been misled by the advice
of ill-disposed, disloyal or seditious persons.
AND WHEREAS we desire, if possible, to
avoid the infliction of the heavy penalties which
the law imposes for the offences of which these
soldiers have thus, been guilty, and to afford
them an opportunity within a limited time to
report and make their services available in Our
Canadian Expeditionary Force as is by law .

G. Dun & Co.. in leading trade  centres of the Dominion of Canada  report that while warm weather lias  somewhat intensified the usual midsummer quieting down in numerous  lines at most points, high prices and  the difliculty of replenishing the supplies of many kinds of merchandise  in most demand resulted in conservative buying on the part of both'con  sumors and distributors but a steady  demand for the leading staples is indicated and a brisk fall movement of  (he principal commodities is confidently expected.  Sentiment in the Far West and  Northwest has been greatly improved  by good rains over a large portion of  the grain-growing districts but merchants generally arc still disposed  to defer the placing of orders until  crop results arc most definitely  known. Business is fairly active in  seasonable lines at Winnipeg and orders at wholesale arc well up to the  average for this period. Quiet, conditions aret he rule at Calgary, Saskatoon Flegina, Moose Jaw and other  cities, but this is usual at this period  and the slowing down is not any  morepronounced than looked for The  improved crop outlook, due to good  rains over extensive territory, have  stimulated confidence in tho future.  Gross earnings of all Canadian rail  roads reporting to date for July show  a decrease of 3.1 per cent, as compared with the corresponding month  a year ago.  Commercial failures this week in  the Dominion of Canada numbered  six as against J 0 last week and II the  same week last year.  '  BECAUSE  THIS  KIUHT PEOPLE 'ARE  LOOKING I?OR YOUR AD.     .  If you COULD (although, OF COURSE, you  can't) stop every man you meet on the streets  asd ask: "Do you want to buy a pair of shoes?"  (Or any other kiiad of goods) You might find  hall' a dozen who would say "Yes." Perhaps not  one of these, however, would waat to buy the  article you want to sell.  If your advertisement, however, were to be  printed in these columns this week, it would  "stop" EVERY MAN IN TOWN WHO WANTS  TO. BUY SHOES, Oil CLOTJfcBS, OR ANY  OTHER ARTICLE���������and it woal&a't "8toi>" aay-  onc who didn't waul, to buy- 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 oi" goo-da,  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.

C. has called attention to  the 'handling of fruit and has received a letter regarding the same from  the Express Company regarding the  same. We learn that the company  liave been educating their handlers to be careful in handling the  berries.  There sure  was much  need  for this. We have seen fruit loaded  on cars that would make the heart  ol the most careless grower grew aggravated. No grower would himself  handle it .("lie same way. Of course  instructing and having the instructions carried out are two different  things. Now that this matter will  in all probability be done according  to instructions of the Express company rho next thing will be to get  always the proper cars at the proper  time.  "1 can only say," continues the letter, 'that we will continue our efforts  as in the past, to handle berries and  other fruits in the proper manner,  and should you have any occasion in  future to complain of our service, I  suggest you call the attention of the  party in charge of the work, so that  M-e canfind out at once who the guilty  parties are, and have the necessary  remedy applied."  Now if the M. C. has this privilege  the fruit growers should have the  same, and we should hear but little  complaint in the future.  Evaporating   I'kinl.  Although no date has been set, it  is anticipated that the Dominion Pro-  duets, Limited, evaporating plant in  Westminster will resume operations  as soon as a supply of raw material  is available within reaching distance.
