That's what you pay for and that's what.y.ou get   by
dealing with'us. , We will   always make   it
a point to secure the best the mai'- .

Prompt and careful

England expects every man to do
his duty, are words very old and also
very apt also. On the battlefield-are
many who are doing their duty at
the present moment, and it would lie
well for us all to think what these
words mean., Duty begins at home
first; and our duty to our country is
our duty at home in the little business affairs of every day life. When.
an opportunity comes to help our
town along by purchasing goods in.
town from one of our merchants it is
riot'our duty to buy it in Sumas. That
will never assist us to build up Abbotsford. Once the money goes to a
foreign' country it'is not likely to'ever come back. It might be a little
cheaper over there, but they can very
easily afford to do that as they never
intend that you will ever see your
dollar again. They never intend to
come to Abbotsford and buy anything
that would not be patriotic on their
part. They say what we have we do
hold, money from Canada���from Abbotsford is like getting 'money from
home' These are the days when'we
should all think these matters over
and decide to help our own country
instead of a foreign country.
Mr. H. E. Lloyd who journeyed to
Mission City last Saturday for the
purpose of bidding farewell' to the
boys going to Valcartier, offered his
services to a recruiting officer on the
train a- few minutes before its depart
ure and Was accepted. He immediately boarded the train and is now
in training awaiting orders 'to
go to the front.
Mr. M. L. Brown who was on the
staff of the Royal Bank of Canada
here for some three years, spent a
few days in town last week.
Mr. J." R. Peckham well known as
an old resident of Abbotsford was in
town  this week.
Owing to the present condition .of
affairs on the continent of -Europe
and the call upon'the Canadian-'citizen to go and fight, Canada and Can-
anadans in all parts of Canada 'are
seriously considering the advisability
of forming home defense corps, -hot
that there is likely to be any particul
ar call in the immediate future -for
the defending of the home'town but
as a' precaution for the future ' and
so that in case of a continuance of a
long war when trained soldiers will
be much needed.
Many towns in the Fraser Valley
have already, formed a home defense
and 'are faithfully drilling ' several
times a week. Haney, Hammond Mission City, Coquitlam on the ;nortlr
side of the river have been busy'along
this line; and there are many, places
on the south side of the river that
have followed suit, and in a short
time will have a trained body of men
for the protection of homes and the
citizens of the community in case of
there being need for such.
The present may be a long and very
stubborn-war, and complications may
arise that we are not aware of and
being prepared is almost half of the
battle, and might be the means of
saving that which we hold most dear
The spirit of home protection is deep
ly imbued in the hearts of all the
Anglo-Saxon race; and the Canadian
is about as independent as any of the
family. ; It would be well to maintain that independence, and be prepared to do so. For this and various
other reasons Abbotsford should have
a home guard. All that is required
is for some one to take the matter
up and others will follow suit. This
paper could point to several men in
the community .who would it is believed are capable and willing', to
assist in bringing a home guard iip
to perfection so that it would be a
credit to the town.
Several of our young men have al-
Evcrything-is in readiness for "the
big fair to be held,in Abbotsford"in
the course of a few. weeks'and! that
it is bound to be a success there, is no
doubt for everybody is working, oven
Father is'working and has-made up
his mind that, he is going to take a
number of,the stock on his ranch to
the fair and show'th'at'he is making
progress in growing horses and'cattle that, he is not", ashamed of, and
that perhaps are just,, as good if not
a little better than "some one else's
Thus each member oF'the'- family is
at the present time thinking just a-
bout the same as 'dad' about the
matter and are , planning liow':th'ey
.will-.make the fair a little'better-by
their- assistance! . - Assistance from
every quarter is'sure'to make the'fair
a success in spite of the fact that a
number would- like "to see it put'off
The directors of the' fair : have , in
good part considered the advisability
of. cutting out the fair but'could not
see^their way clear to undo the good
work that had,been done in having
a-fair for Abbotsford this year, so'
have decided to'.call upon all the
community to assist'-in -having ;one
day 'when all can"get 'together "in
competition   of   home .'products.
This week we publish the .prize list
and by. the "beginning of the.'week
all prize' lists and the rules\of the.
fair together .with the forms for entering the stock, etc., will 'be .in the
hands of the secretary for distribution. " .-'.,. -..,���-
The reason the .prize list is published, in this week's issue before all'
prize lists ' are''nf the hands .of the
secretary is that we .want, to boost
the   fair' along.    The   lists : are   all
printed but require a little time to
dry.  Just as soon as    the  'various
pages  came  off the' job -.press'"' they
were placed in the forms'and run'off
in this issue.    The pres'sman-on the'
job' press was hurried along a little
as we could not have, the Post late
Next  week  the  list   will   appear  in
tlie ��� Fraser  Valley  Record;  and   no
doubt a number of people in Mission
will  be,induced  to  attend 'the  fair,
and  it' may ,be  possible  that  some
exhibits will come from that part of
the Valley.    The more the merrier.  ,
All  entries  for  Abbotsford's'fair
must be made on'.the 17th of'September to be shown the' next' day,
and it would'be well for everyone
to  not leave it"'to !the last" "minute
as the secretary ��� will be'busy.
The fair-is--on the 18th of September, arid do not forget that-'Friday
is our second big day in Abbotsford
this year.
-\.'--        . j ... .
On, Monday morning bright and
early all the boys and girls of school
age in Abbotsford and surrounding
district, were up'bright and early and
preparing for school; and the consequence was that there was a very
good attendance when the school bell
rang and the principal! Mr. -Sutherland resumed' his duties as "principal.
for the' term.
The teachers 'for the coming' term
Principal���Mr. Sutherland.
2nd Division;���Miss Thomas.
3rd Division���Miss Laxton.
4th Division���Miss  McDonald. .
It is hoped that- the attendance
during the coming year,will be such
that the school .will be able to make
a good showing at the examinations
next year.
Mr. George' Gellett who recently
underwent a serious operation in the
Sumas hospital is reported to be on
the speedy road to recovery.
ready gone to the front' "arid there
are undoubtedly more who will think
It -their duty to go. '' It' would: be
a matter for.joy to know that, some
of the men who will give a good account of themselves belonged to the
home guard  of  Abbotsford.
All sincerely trust that none ot us
will' be  called upon to give a good I
account of ourselves on the battle-1
field, but it is well to be prepared.

E. Loveday of Vancouver, Dominion Fruit Inspector,  and an equally interesting talk by Mr.  Geo. Thornton, of Sardis, Fruit Bottling commissioner for the province,  who told of the success of the co-oper  ative movement in the Chilliwack  district and the operations of the Chil  liwack Producers'  Exchange.  At the close ofo the meeeting on  the motion of Mr. C. Hill-Tout, seconded by Mr. J. A. Langley, it was  resolved unanimously that the co'-op-  erative marketing movementof the  league be'approved and that the coun  cil of Matsqui be asked to support  the league.  The meeting also' placed 'itself on  record as approving of the full dry  pint hallock for small fruit packing  purposes, ���������and this recommendation  will'be forwarded to the Dominion  Fruit Growers' Convention meeting  at Grimsby, on motion of,:Messrs Hill  Tout and Winston.  Reeve Merryfield who presided expressed himself as personaly favorable to the marketing movement  launched by. the league. Ho believed it was a good thing, spoke of tho  value of Mr. Abbott's services on tho  city markets in the interests of the  growers, as .it had come under his  observation, and of the necessity of  organization among tho producers If  they wore to reap the full returns  from their production.- The Matsqui  council would support tho lcaguo ho  believed, if the councillors wore assured that the ratepayers wore in favor of it, and would approve of the  small monthly expenditure.  Secretary Cunningham, of the league, explained the reasons for' under  taking tlAs,new work and the employ  ment of a markets commissioner. Tho  league was municipally controlled  and supported by monthly contrbut-  ions from several municipalities and  boards of trade of the, Fraser Valley  Vancouver city, had slnvon its interest in the work by joining the New,  Westminster, board of trade, Maple  Ridge board of trade and Vancouver  wider benefit be derived from the  Markets commissioners activities and  his report market reports - be more  widely distributed.  Mr. Abbott in his address and proposals, to which there- was not a dis  senting voice, pointed out the unsatis  factory condition of the markets    of  British Columbia at the present time  The  produce  was also  I10t going in  in proper shape and this was bearing  down  the prices.    He had been endeavoring to better the packing; and  beyond this practical work it was the  aim   to  organize   the  producers and.  secure the control of the distribution  of valley produce, thus i>reventing the  market being glutted at unfavorable  times.    He instanced how on Friday  the loss to the shippers of the valley  produce to Vancouver had not been  less than $7 50;   how the market at  times was lost to local .producers by  irregular' supply;' lack of control of  new m'arketts as those of northern B  C. and of the necessity of organization that the  producers should  get a  fairer profit, as revealed in the success of the Mission fruit and veget- ,  able growers in securing a large share ���������  of the  prairie  trade.    The aim  was  to work out an organization whereby  the farmer could control distribution  Local organizations should be organized to handle the producing,and collecting  end   an   dthcro  should   bo  a  central soiling agency to market the  produce  profitably.      There  was no  reason     why      Abbotsford     district  should not be shippiiig food products  in  quantities  as, tho  Mission   district  It was Important that the producers  should realizo that co-ojioralive marketing  implied   co-operation   in   production and packing.  Mr. Loveday was thou called upon  to explain the Fruit Marks Act, and ���������  gave a demonstration in packing apples. Mr. Thornton of Sardis in ex-  plaining the methods of success of  tho Chilliwack Co-operative Producers' Exchange, said that he,hoped to  see the whole of the Valley organized  with a central selling agency, having  control of storage and facilities in  the consuming centres and that it  was time that the producers of the  Fraser Valley woke up to their opportunities as the producers across  the line had done.

The league had Fraser River was pointed out This  been promised the'assistance of the  New Westminster council. ' Maple  Ridge, Burnaby, Port Coquitlam and  Coquitlam municipality had given active support and'if- was-due to the  zealous efforts of the Reeve of Maple  Ridge,' Mr.' Lougheed, and the interest in "the league by Reeve Marmont  .of Coquitlam since' its inception that  new; in overrent had reorganized on  practical, lines. The only salaried  officer was the Markets Commissioner  whose good work for the movement  had during the past two months been  of great value to many producers of  the valley, making use of the city  markets.- By all municipalities of  the Valley joining, the work could  carried  on   more  effectively  and    a  would permit them to ship to the  prairies as the north side was doing  and now was the time to organize.  Mr. Hill-Tout declared that the  movement that the league was promoting was long he had been advocating. He emphasized the value of,  a central selling agency in affording  a reliable and regular'source to the-  dealers, of the value of co-operative  effort, and praised the good work he  had noticed Mr. Abbott had been doing.' He, too, hoped to see a collect  ing agency in every district and a'cen  tral agency organized to bring fair  returns to the producers.  Mr. Abbott will address a meeting  in Chilliwack on Saturday evening.���������  Columbian.  41.  42.  43.  .50  .50  .50  53  54  55  56  57  58  64.  65.

These big expenditures are backed by hard, persistent work on the part ofv the-direct  ors,. management and the large staff  of exhibition'employees.     Everybody  is helping Vancouver to put on a big  fair, and the development of the Eur  opean v,ar situatich in the last few  days with its consequent -depressing-  effect has only spurred the management on.  The effect of tlie early start made  this year, the^-cumulative. endeavors  of the previous years and the policy  of boosting by every conceivable method and on every possible occasion  has'resulted in a tremendous demand  for jirize lists. t This has been taken  as indicative of the success of the cx-  hibiton.  Last year some fifty thousand prize  AH shoes now in stock to be cleared out  at cost price, including English K Boots, the  regular price of which are $6.00, 6.50 and  7.50 for $4.50, $5.50 and $6.00 per pair.
