For they gave to me a sweeping brush the first day I   listed.  I got a rifle later on, and a bayonet shining bright, .  Some four by two, a pull-through���������my-face beamed with delight,  I thought they'd send me out to tight;   but no, 1- must confess.  For fourteen hundred blooming times I was put on Sergeant s Mess.  And when the soldiers marched away, and  drums began to roll,  I was always left behind, unloading trucks of coal.  Thev made me clean the dining hall, and chop trees in the woods,  Anl for several months they put me in the cook-house pealing ^J s<  Week in, week out, in the-Gorporafs Mess, 1 scrubbed the floors and tabloo,  Then after that I had to go muck-out in the stables;  I Joined to fight, there was no doubt, like all the now beginners,  But while the others carried on, your humble carried dinners.  A fellow down in our camp once, named Private Mclndo,  With a pair of army braces tried  to pull his rifle  through,  But they got stuck in the middle,, and his pals all gave a shout,      -  So they had to break his rifle up, to get his braces out. ���������  Ten million times I've formed-platoon, and numbered till I m tned,  My bavonet-charging at the sacks the Colonel he admired;  On night-opps in the trenches I've sent up dummy rockets  And Pve brought my eyes back with a click, till they've trembled in thou  I've been^n guard four thousand times, that wants a bit of whacking  I've worn my shoes away until L've walked upon the blacking;  ' Rats as big as donkeys every night came out to scoff me.  One foggy night a big one came, and took my rifle off me.  They came out in their thousand���������they did, upon my soul-  Then one with fiery whiskers stood up and called the roll;  Then the C. O. gave a lecture on tho evil ways oi wenches,  Then they'd form fours, and all march off to the regimental trenches.  Ten thousand mess-tins I have cleaned, ton thousand tea-cans too,.  Plates and basins, knives and forks, and bed-board not a tew  Ve scrubbed the beams inside the hut, the shelves, doors, windows  Then I've got inside the red hot stove, and pushed out all the cindeis.  One chap lost his oil-bottle and piece of four by two,  About a fortnight after he found them . in Ins. stew, .     .  So he went and told the Sergeant, who said.   -That s just a trifle,  "Stir your stew to-morrow, and. perhaps you II And the rifle.  Tho only battle I've seen  was at the picture show,  And 1  rot quite excited when the British charged tie toe;  gripped the chap's throat next me without the slightes    warning,  Then he let go with a sledge-hammer blow, and 1 went sick next morning  A fellow tried to work his ticket���������oh, it was a scream,���������  Hp swallowed half a pound of soap and a Harmsworth Magazine.  Tlie'doctor came and saw him, as he wriggled like a rocket,  ���������Twas a cert he'd get his ticket���������but ho dl ed before he got it.  For months and months I slept on planks through summers and winters,  Unon my back, instead of hair, I started growing splinters,  I'd solinters here, I'd splinters thero, but still 1 bear no malice,  I'd wood enough  on my chest to bull', a picture palace.  I've been inoculated, vaccinated, spifflicatod too ���������  Had scarlet fever seventeen times, like the soldiers have to do.  Jumped it, overstayed my leave continually.

She was ��������� escorted to the altar by her brother Mr.  'Emmanuel de la Giro day in the absence of her father, Sergt. de la Gir-  oday,. who is overseas, who is overseas with the C. E.

The wedding march was played by  Madame Cannonville, grandmother of  the bride, and her sisters, Madolyn  and Isabella, sang very sweetly during tho ceremony.  After the wedding ceremony a private reception and breakfast took  place at the home of the bride's parents.  ' The honeymoon was spent in visiting the Sound Cities. Mr. and Mrs.  Delesalle will reside at Glover on the  13. C E. R.  PUBLIC PICNIC ON LABOR DAY  The local Lodge of The True Blues  will hold a public picnic on Labor  Day September 3rd on the lake shore  at Bclrose. Everyone is cordially  invited to attend the ladies to provide  the baskets.  Those attending will,leave on the  B. C. E. R. at 11.10 a. m. and return on the .7 p. m. car.

Gordon Walters has been  transferred from the Railway Service  to the B. C. Cyclists Platoon and expects to go overseas very shortly.  Mr. C Sumner has tried to enlist  but was sure turned down.

A very hungry market all weejv,  describes.the situation for this week.  Only a few rasps were really firm,  most were more or less wet and  packed and so could not be sold at  the top, which at the end of the  week, was $3.  Blacks were nice, only too few of  them.  Now let me ask all growers not to  make the mistakes they did on the  strawberries and ag,ain on the raspberries.    Not to ship retailers heavy  nor at a lower    price    than    ?2.6 5,  which means a $3  price in Calgary  and so enables us to  maintain that  price.    We give an honest service for  a reasonable commission. Some think  they can get along without the middle  man. We have no  complaint to  make about that.    They   grow    the!  berries and it is their right to do as,  they please with them, but for the.  good or the industry and their fel-j  low grower, let them help us main-^  tain a fair price.    Peoplo want to do  up blackberries and are not waiting  for  them  to  bo  cheap;   are  buying  them now.    We   have   one   country  merchant who has placed an order  with us for 20 crates at ?3  for his  customers.    It    remains    with    you  whether the price is maintained    at  $3 to not you $2.25 or whether it is  cut down   by your sending to some  retailor more than he can handle and  have him cut prices advertising them  low to sell them or by selling lower  yourselves direct to the trade and so  low the whole market.

September the 20th and 21st, and promises to  be one of the best yet. _ .      ������������������  While many of the surrounding Fall F airs  will not be held this year, the Directors of the  Mission Association, deemed it not wise to  cancel their fair, in view of the great call for  'more production' this year, and believing that,  a- greater interest would be taken this year  than ever, on that account. , *  It is likely that many exhibitors from a-  crtfss the river will make it a point to show in.  Mission City this year, and it is likely that the  competition will be stronger than ever. Mats*,  qui has no exhibition; neither has Chilhwack|::  and it may be that some from these districts  will visit our fair with an exhibit, making-  competition more keen and the fair more m|  teresting, and it will be up .to Mission City and  district to carry off most of the prizes and show         that this district is second to none.   It is un-  casion of the wedding of ������������%������ derstood that the glad hand will be extended.  to- all visitors with exhibits. '  There will of course be the usual prises  given, with all the many specials.  FEE'S WEEKLY  ���������   MARKET LETTER  Shortly after one o'clock in the afternoon smoke was seen coming out  of the shed behind the house. The  alarm was given and almost Instantly  enough men were under active ser-  vice to save the residence. -A bucket  brigade between the small stream aijtd  the burning building was formed arid  kept the water thrown on the side  next the house in almost a continuous  stream, while the small hose wjis  usel to most excellent effect. ���������������������������$:  It would be impossible to mention  the names of all who did yeoman  service in fighting the fire, but there  are a very large number of very active men in Mission City during a Are  whose sole object is to get the fire under control, and the town has every  reason to be proud of such good work  as was done on Friday at the fire.:,  There are 225 students attending  the Vancouver Normal School, which  opened on Monday of this. week. Of  this number there are only 19 young  men.  The pupils from the Mission High  School are the Misses Sue, Ethel and  Ma rgaret Laxton, Miss Alice Manzer,  Miss Maray Noble, Miss Bertie  Verchere, Miss Helen Bates and Mr.  Alex. Kraemer.  The oil put on the street opposite  Mr. Alanson's store shows that the  streets of Abbotsford would be much  more pleasant if the government put  oil on all of Essendene Avenue. We  all hope the little lesson will make  the authorities wise next year.  Lee, the Baker has another load of  flour in. He sure is rushing the flour  bosiness.

We believe it would be a good  idea to have the   member ' for  Dewdney and  the member-for  Chilliwack visit and watch the  service for half a day and prove  to themselves by   actual   facts  that the people of Matsqui and  Mission are not asking for some  thing that would    not    be    of  mutual benefit to both sides   ������f  the Fraser to say nothing of the  accommodation   to  the  travelling public.  It is wonderful how'the traf  lie has developed since the fer  ry service was first put on.  the country is at war, knew  whattheir old time political  i'riendsthought of them, we believe they would hide their head  with shame.  The real truth of the matter is  that we should" be agitating for  a bridge across, the Fraser- at  this point. And it might be a  go������d idea to talk bridge a little while, and see if some improvement on the present system, which is- very good in .its  way,,cannot be obtained.  The- development of .the dis:  trict requires that a bridge be  built at an early date and the  sooner we press this' on the  government- the* better. ��������� Let us  get ready for the next 'oV.ctiorv.  We.are candidly of the opinion  that there is more .traffic over  the Mission ferry than over the  bridge at Cbquitlam.  It has been sail that this snr  tax is class legislation. That  is what many governments in  the past have tried to avoid,  it however remains a wonder  why unorganized districts have  been taxed and not the municipalities. Not of course that we  want to see the other fellow in  misery like ourselves, but it was  surely not intended that way.  It may be that the government think that the resident- in  the unorgaiiizel district i.- the  fellow with the dough.'  Enormous quantities of food "are  thrown out-daily by stores dealing in  perishabie goods.- Dealers, have to  allow for this loss by including;, the  value of waste in theirr. margin . of  profit. It is suggested that- wornanls  organizations in the various cities  towns arrange to have ��������� food, which  may otherwise be wasted, collected  from the stores each day and distributed'whore it will be-most appreciated, or sold at cheap prices for the  benefit of one of the war funds.  Hems  of Interest to B.  C.  Growers  Rogers as a member of the  Borden government is no more-  It may be a good thing and it  may not. It is hard to say.  As a real bad,man in politics  a lot has been said;, now he  has started to, .throw bad ���������_ government up .to Borden. Would  it be possible that being, a 'far  sighted man he is after the  leadership of the Liberal party.  Much stranger things have happened in politics, which are  said to make 'strange . bedfellows.'  This month's Motorist reaches our sanctum and is- a very  great credit to the managers. It  is as plum full of als; as the  fruit this year is full of flavor.  Last month the management  made a trip from Vancouver on  the north side of the river and  back on the south. An excellent description of the trip with  some views is the result. It, is  well worth the support of all  who are interested in motoring.  ��������� It's a curious commentary oh human naturo that tho best cabbage and  onions ever grown-are now practically unsaleable on the.Seattle market.

One  will have to lose its identity in  this union of conflicting ideas.  EGGS IN THE DIET  From the bulletin published by the  State Agricultural College, New Jersey, U.' S. A., entitled ."Milk and  -Eggs" we extract the following information re the value of eggs in  the   diet.  Composition-of-the hen's eggs compared with moderately lean beef:  Hen's Egg' Lean Beof  Water    73.7_ 70.5  Fat    10.5' 8.5  Protein   ..: 14.8 . 20.0  ?,['ineral   Water     1.0 1.0  The protein in the egg is nearly  pure albumen. The yolk of an egg  is of greater nutritive value than the  v*. hite. It is rich in' the following,  mineral salts: calcium, iron potassium and phosphorus and contains  them in such a form that they are  readily absorbed and utilized by the  body. The white of an egg is rich  in sulphur.  Value as Food.  .By comparing' the composition of  the egg with that of lean meat it will  be noticed that eggs make a good  substitute for meat. Nine average-  sized eggs weigh one pound and contain about the same amount of nur-  ishment as one pound of beef. As  eggs contain no starch or sugar they  r.hould be served with such foods as  rice bread, fruit, potatoes and other  vegetables or made into desserts with  sugar, tapioca, and similar materials.  Digestibility of Eggs.  Raw eggs are very-easily digested.  The' digestibility of cooked eggs depends upon the manner in which they  are cooked. They should be cooked  at low temperature. Egg albumen  begins to coagulate at 134-degrees F.  becomes jelly like at 160 degrees F.  and when heated to the boiling point,  212 degrees F. becomes tough leathery mass and very indigestible.  As you go along to breakfast, take  in an armful, of wood.  By.

The real truth of the matter  is that our Canadian politicians  have not come down to hard  and real earnest business with a  view to winning the war. There  is t������o much politics yet to make  for good first-class enlisting.

PASSED QUIETLY AW Ay  Eliminating tho Waste  ele  If you use the Long Distance phone between 9 and  12 in the morning or between 1 and 3 in the afternboon.you  are doing just what most users of the Long Distance Telephone, do. When everybody wants to use the wire at the  same time, somebody'has to wait.  At any other hour of the day service is prompter, because the demand is less.  Between 7. p. m. and S a. m. you can use the Long  Distance Telephone over three times the clay period at the  same rate.  BRITISH COLUMBIA TELEPHONE Co.

Mr. Grant is leaving shortly to  make a tour through 13. C.*, visiting,  tho diiTorent growers and explaining  to them the peculiarities of the prairie trade. Some young growers thore  have made a bad start in obtaining  the good graces of tho prairio wholesale man, by defective and inexperienced methods of shipping and this is  ono question which the commissioner  wishes to discuss with these producers.���������Calgary Nows-Telogram.

C. as far  as 1917 is concerned has come and  gene with the exception of blackberries., says J. A. Grant, the fruit markets  Commissioner.  We have passed another milestone  and our experience is greater for the  passing.    It  might  be  fitting  to  re  mark on the errors that we can seo \ is raspberries,  a way to rectify while they are fresh   specially.  The questtion of how to do this  best can be fully debated and acted  upon but regarding the question of  enlarging the acreage your M.C. begs  to offer a suggestion. Wherever a  district is situate-d that, has become  famous lor a special fruit thai district should enlarge mostly in that  Une. Just as an example let rr.e instance the Fraser Valley.

Distribution cannot  be systemizod until we have this information. Thorough distribution  gives the true information as to supply and demand in general'and. this  is the price determining factor. The  supply has not been'satisfied this year  at any point and in many cases it has  been only enough to aggravate the  buyers. Prices have not been set intelligently and many cases are known  where bad distribution has cost the  growers   thousands  of   dollars'   loss.  any other fruit but they are famous  for raspberries.  Then take the districts surrounding Victoria and find what they are  noted for and you will say strawberries, and this also is the case with  Croston and surrounding- districts to  a less extent. .       *       .  My advice therefore is to put your  districts further on the map, build up  and extend on your specialty and let  the same thing apply all round. As  the output increases you.can provide  all modern methods of taking care of  the total product, and also the byproduct.

It has been said that the loganberry is the king of berries. Admitting this, the fact remains that it is  largely an unknown quantity and before plunging and planting acres of  (Report of Market Commissioner)  Today (August..16) the express  shipments are very heavy. There were  two full cars express produce for distribution from Calgary.  Today is very hot and your M.C.  watched the work of unloading. During the half hour, which ia the time  time the train stops here, the Dominion Express staff transferred 800  crates to the Edmonton train, which  pulled out 20 minuts after the arrival  of the main line train and took care  of the balance in the nick of time.  The whole staff, Including the manager were in- their shirt sleeves and  they were a business-looking lot.  The only accident.was the partial  removal of a box lid. One can imagine that the speed necessary to do  such work did not permit of gentle  handling, but under the circumstances no greater care was possible. The  growth of B. C. shipments continues  and will continue to increase aa?,d the  ���������better organized districts must combine to remove some of this p?essuro  or much unavoidable loss will occur.  The object in calling attention to this  matter now is to give growers time  to think and act in their own interests bofore another season. The Do  minion Express Co. will then have a  lot of new refrigerator cars of large  and modern build and there is no  good reason why. the well organized  associations should not take advantage of them.  There is no question of being able  to sell in car lots. The whole prairie  jobbing trade would welcome our  produce In that way and when we  take advantage of the opportunity of  filling; their neds in sufficient volume  the importations from other places  will decrease.
