If there is lack of prosperity and  its attendant slow' growth in a toAvn  it may be in large part traceable- to  to selfish ahd'.unpatriotic actions of  its citizens.: As the prosperity of any  town or community depends upon ts  commercial and industrial activities,  it is at once'the primary duty of ev-  ery loyal citizen,to buy-and sell 'pi  home and so build up trade within  his own boundary circle.

It's a matter of vision on  the one hand, and on , the. other a  matter of education, ���������"'*  Citizenship can never rise to its  "best with' the handicaps of commercialism. To say that a certain town  is prosperous because of its inducing  facilities for large manufactures and  the consequent operations of the same  is only a half-truth at its best. Suppose the citizen of such a town motored over to a nearby town to spend  his earnings���������even under the excuse  of combining business with pleasure  ������������������what is he doir.f;? He ii first of  all, doing grievous harm to Llij trau:.  and prosperity^ of his own to������/n by  increasing the pr-spr-rity of (he town  in which he trades. In other worciu.  he is' providing thr1 r-nrmy V/ith the  guns to bring destruction on his own  ��������� town.  at home all that which we find so  attractive and profitable elsewhere.  Let us recast the word citizenship  and really enjoy its pristine glory.', ���������  "The local merchant is a heavy-taxpayer, usually, and gives employment  to many who, are" renters,.not taxpayers. It is the duty of both taxpayers  and renters, to' buy in the interest of  the home town. - If there -'were no  town and everyone traded in~Vancoir  ver or with the ��������� mail order "houses  there would be many seeking, positions elsewhere.

The'logic is easy which concludes  that even the argument of buying at  larger places and larger stores is  profitable is not a valid one. By  spending at home and desiring to do  so will bring the home tradesman up  to the point of increasing both the  quality- and variety of his stock in  trade and additional help entailed  thereby would mean a larger citizens-  ship, hence an increase of population  and prosperity. '   l  Let both the buyer and seller cultivate the high order of citizenship  and a promise healthy to both,  and prosperity to their home town in  general will be easily consumated.  It therefore becomes the seconl  duty of every loyal citizen to edue-  cate for home patronage in business  and trading affairs, and to enforce  the fact that any lack -of progress in  the home town is largely due to a  thoughtless yet ruinous trading  abroad and that every good citizen  should have the welfare of his own  town in his heart first, and that he  individually can do much for its ad-  " vaucomerit thereby', arid that every  dollar circulated in its business undertakings helps to put it upon a  safer and surer foundation and insure  The ninth annual.flower show    of  the'Matsqui Worn en'^Institute    was  held'Thursday afternoon, last   in the  Clayburn school house*.

NO ROOSTER;   RIOTTER EGOS  The Poultry Division-of the Department'of Agrculture has the following to say- of- the importance of  the removal of male birds after the  breeding season:  The presence of male birds'.in the  flock after June 1 each year has a  decidedly - detrimental- effect upon  the quality :of - eggs marketed for the  following reasons.  1. Eggs'which have been-fertiliv,  ed constitute'-;'-'t'he - greater    proportion of    the    inferior    stock    which,  when examined,    proves    unfit    for  food.  2. It is not necessary that these  eggs shall have remained for a time  under a broody hen, a' temperature  of severity degrees being in itseu  sufficient to cause the germ to commence to grow.  3. If the heat is constant the development of the chick will continue, but if it ceases or is intermittent  purification at once sets' in and tho  egg is bad.  4. Infertile eggs free from the  active germ, cell, do not, under ordinary conditions, deteriorate as rapidly as fertile eggs.  Few farmers seem' to comprehend  these facts aud consequently vevy  few make any effort to ensure infertility.  The erroneous impression prevails  among mauy that the presence of the  male bird is essential lo the production of a maximum number of eggs.  Farmers and others selling eggs  for market are, therefore, urged to  kill off, dispose of, or'at ; least remove from the flock, the ���������mail birds  after the breeding season.  Canadian farmers lost at least a  million dollars each year -through  the presence of partially incubated  and bad eggs in the produce which is  marketed, not to mention the value  or the feed consumed in the six or  seven months in .which the maL> birds  are kept to no purpose, and the fact  that the prices for poultry are invariably- higher in June- than later.

What- is .more, seed is exported to Ireland and other countries,  and it, has boon 'proven by actual  spinning tests that Canadian fibre is  suitable .for the' manufacture of tho  finest'.linen damasks. Also that the  fibre obtained from- flax grown on  Iho experimental" I'a'rnisjn the' western part: of British Columbia, in  Ontario,' the valley of the St. Lawrence, .and in the Maritime Provinces,  has not only been of first class Quality, but equal to the best grades of  Irish or 'Belgian. .

They tell "only" .one  the -truth 'usually,' and they -tclMha't  so .they will win the election.  ITow many sides are -there to 'the  truth?- There'used 'to be only two  sides to the truth, politically. That  depended upon which side"pf politics  you were on. Now they 'telFme there  is a progressive side to the truth.  Once upon a time, as the story goes  a young man started out to be a good  young man and to tell the truth upon  all occasions. He told the truth about j  the dry goods he sold. He told the  truth about his-best girl's pet" cat. tie  told the truth about what he thought  of his paternal guardian.

The moral to this  would bo to polish up the truth so i!  would not appear so<one-sided.  Tell the truth, the whole.- truth  and nothing but the truth has landed  some people in jail. Jt seems' a big  undertaking for Lyold George.  When hubby is out late at night���������-  say about 2 or " o'clock in the woe  sma' hours, does he tell wifie the  truth and nothing but the'.truth of  where he was?

Man has been commanded lo "buy the truth and-sell it not"  yet Lloyd George is to sell the truth  the whole truth and nothing -'but the  truth  for $-1 SO.000.  Now there would be some sense if  John Oliver fold tho truth about  many things. Tho other day if-cosl  British Columbia about $20,000,000  when "Honest" John fold the truth  about the P. 0.

What this country needs is'nt more  liberty, but less people who will take  liberties with out liberty.  What this country needs is not a  job for every man, but a real man for  every job.  What this country needs isn't to  get more taxes from the people, but  for the people to get more from the  taxes.  What this country needs is not  more miles of territory, but more  miles to the gallon.  What this country needs is more  tractors and  less detractors.  What this country needs isn't more  young men making speed, but more  young men planting spuds.  What this country needs is more  paint on the old place and less paint  on the young face.  When the present "very  reaction has passed away, as it most  assuredly will, it will be seen that the  reign of Queen Victoria was not only  more prosperous than any recorded  period of equal length in the history  of any country, but was also an age  of great men in nearly every field.'  And it was an age which .knew how  to honor their greatness. Where are  the statesmen today, whom men respect as their grandfathers respected  Peel; Whom men worship as their  fathers worshipped Gladstone; to  whose genius they look up in dazzled  wonder, pride arid delight as - men  once looked up to the mysterious figure of Disraeli? And the same contrast may.been seen in other fields.-  Where'today is the writer- who is]  heard and .reverenced as a seer, not  by the readers of popular newspapers',  hut by the leaders of thought, the  science, the art, the public life of  the nation���������as Tennyson and George  Eliot, Carlyle and Ruskin were  heard and reverenced over fifty years  ago? Where are the religious leaders who today stir hearts and minds  as Newman did in one way during the  reign of Victoria, and Maurice and  Kingsley in another, "Pusey and Lid-  don in yet another to say nothing of  men like Spurgeon and obscurer  teachers of obscurer followers? Wo  may now see the limitations of these  men as clearly as their greatness.  But the man who sees greatness is  himself a greater man. than the man  who merely sees limitations. And the  followers of such men as these were  by-no means fools. Still' less were  they fools' who resorted to Carlyle  and Tennyson and George Eliot as or  acles of wisdom. On the contrary  they were among the acutest intellects and noblest characters' of  their day. Where today are the successors either of the oracles or of  the pilgrims?- Evidently there is  loss somewhere. Either we no longer have the great men or we no longer have the will or power to honor  greatness. It must be one or the  other. , And whichever it is, it is  clear that the Georgian era will be  wise to give itself as yet no airs  when talking.of the Victorian.���������John  Bailey, in "Some Political Ideas and  Person."
