C  Some  Sound Advise  ANOTHEU CARLOAD OF  FOUHS  A farmer who was carryin an express .parcel from a city mail order  house, vias accosted by a local merchant: "Why don't you buy that bill  of goods from me? I could of sav^d  you the express aud besides you  would of been patronizin������- a home  store, which helps pay the taxes and  builds up this locality." With characteristic frankness the farmer asked: "Why don't you patronize your  home paper and advertise? I read it  and didn't know you had the goods I  have here, nor did I ever 3ee your  name in tho paper inviting any one  to come to your store."  Mr. J. A. Hargitt, local agent for  the Ford car, unloaded another carload of Ford Touring cars this week.  J. A. knows how to do business even  if it is in the winter.  A   C!iC2ii>   Itido  A farmer rushed up to the homo  of a country doctor in the village late  one night- and asked him to como at  once to a distant fiirnihauso.  The 'medicine man backed'his auto  out of the garage and motored furiously to the farmer's 'house. Upon  their a:Tiuil the farmer asked:  '' l-l -1 v.- <.)i v. cb   is you r foe docto r '>."  "Three dollars," aald the physician  in surprise.  "Here you are,!' said the farmer  handing over the money; "the blamed liveryman wanted five to drive me  homo."

The president then introduced Mr   ,1.  Kyle. Supervisor of Manual Training.  Mr,  Kyle gave an interesting keftro  on Technical Education,     lie pointed  out   that,  the  day  of  apprenticeship  )ciiig now  past,  it. is imperative for  lhe   industrial   welfare  of   every   nation  that opportunities  be  given   its  boys and  girls of  lilting  themselves  to'take up some trade or profession;  and   that  this    technical     education  should   bo  compulsory   no   less   than  i-oinmon elementary, education.      He  Hhowed some excellent views of manual work  done by boys and girls in  Germany,     England     and     Canada.  Many  "duffers"  in  schol   work  have  been redeemed by this means and enabled   to   follow   their  natural   bent.  Mr.  Kyle quoted  from  famous educationists such as Rousseau, Pestal-  ozzi,  Froebel and  others.    The  first  named held it an axiom that all education worthy of the name is derived  from manual arts.      The hand educates the brain and is controlled by  what  itself   has   produced.     Instruction in  manual work brings to light  native abilities, trains dormant faculties, gives theory its  full'value and  lends poise and self-control.    .    The  young man  for woman)   who knows  himself capable of bearing his share  in the work of the world gains self-  respect from knowledge.  A i  ���������* , THE  ABBOTSFORD POST.

Here is an excellent opportunity  for a representative ' of the fruit  growers to present some of their  many difficulties. It would give the  matter a wide publicity, and that is  what the growers desire.  appear     that '��������� about   all that can be  moved this season have gone, although'a large number of farmers  are holding the tubers in pits anticipating  higher  prices  later  on.'

It is  this lack of system that makes the  fanning and fruit growing such an  uncertain success.  The farmer lias the grandest opportunity in the world to form a great  big organization, and we do not see  why there is not a get together movement in this respect. Other business  interests organize. Why not the farmer?  ��������� At tho meeting on Thursday .last between  the growers and the board  of  trade a resolution .was passed asking  that Chinese be brought into the district and country t,o ao the fruit picking. If   may   look   to   be   an   unwise movement to many who are net  in the fruit business, but. to the friut  grower any scheme which insures to  him the picking of the fruit at prices  that will return to him a profit, is a  welcome scheme:  and solves a problem that is agitating his mind at the  present time.    At the same time it is  a matter that there are many people  in the province���������especially the laboring class who will object to the resolution   as   undoing   good   work   done j operation event,  in the years gone by in  having the   ������<ers will be Hon  Oriental prohibited from entering the   Hon.  w  country.

Her views should  be illuminating (.0 the merchants who  aver that they have "no use for advertising."  "I am a busy woman," she said  "and tho care of my house and family  fakes all my time. I am not able to  get to town very often, and when 1  do my time, is very limited. Where I  came from I used to get all the clothing, boots and shoes and other neces  sitics for the household from the local stores. 1 used to watch the advertisements in the local paper, and  when I saw what I wanted, I know  that I could go and ask for the very  thing I needed, and gel. it. The transaction took only a very few minutes,  and 1 was able, on most ot my visits  to town to get done all  r wanted.  '���������This does not seem,to be the caao  now," she went on, "and 1 have giro*  up frying,     i haven't the time to go  and. find out whether the stores have |  what   I   want or not.

Among the ciuestions  ���������that came up ware the shortage ol  labor, tlie mosquito post and the  concession of opening cars'en route.  There was represented a' total of a-  bout '300 acres of which 200 wore  raspberries, 40 strawberries and the  balance other small frnils, with a total estimated crop last season of a-  bouL   $150,000.  Mr. A. M. Verchere of Lhe board  of trade was appointed chairman and  J. A. Bates secretary of the meeting.  Berrypickcrs Tor the coming season  was discussed and the motion of tho  Kraser Valley Growers came up for  discussion. The motion was as follows:  -Resolved: .that we ask Mission City  Board of Trade Lo bring before tho  proper authorities That in the opinion of the Kraser Valley Growers,  Inc., that in order to help out the  Fruit Growers with their troubles (re  scarcity of pickers for their small  fruits) that the government should  allow Chinese labourers to.enter this  Province until such times as the la-i  bor market rights itself. At the  present time, tho Chinese are our  main supply of farm labor and that  owing to small number available the  men here at present are demanding  such an excessive wage that it is  impossible for the Grower to realize  a fair return for his product.  Iu further discussion it was suggested that the matter of transportation was an important matter for  the berry pickers and it was suggested that in this respect the C. P. R-  was not playing the game square in  British Columbia as the American  roads did; and the-following motion  was  passed  unanimously:  That the committee interview the  C. P. R. with a view of securing  harvest rates from all points for the  pickers and labourers for fruit farms  from May to August inclusive.  At  the  suggestion   of  the  Fraser  Valley Growers the followine motion  was passed without much discussion;  That  we  ask  the    Mission     City  board of trade to assist the growers  PATRONAGE IS  NOT DEAD IN  15.

'  in obtaining from the Express Company the privilege of opening express carlots of small fruits, at least  two  points en   route: ��������� -  That owing lo Lhr, perishable nature of small fruits'it is absolutely  necessary that our cars  should reach the markets a  as possible. Under present conditions, cars roll by towns which could  be served, were the opening privilege available In some cases carloads have been sacrificed because of  I ho lack of proper distributing Utilities and unless the growers obtain  this opening privilege, they will bc^  raced with serious losses, causing- a.  setback to our,.fruit industry, from  which, with our increased acreage  coming into bearing, it will be impossible to recover from.  dl. was also moved and carried I hat  I ho committee lake up the Minister of Labour (lie of cheap  labour in the fruitgrowing industry.

Mr.  Brewseter    has    proclaimed   abroad   that  the  patronage  svtem would be    done    away    with  when the Liberals came into power.  In contradiction to this was the letter  of  the  secretary  of  the  Liberal  Association of Mission City to a voter  of Dewdney riding, during the election, soliciting his vote for Mr. John  O'iver and at the same time stating  "we   (the  Liberals)     always     Know-  how to take care of our friends." In  carrviiig out this policy the secretary  of  the  Liberal   Association   here   on  Sunday morning escorted a  sixteen-  vear-old  school  boy to  the John  H.  Sprott,   the   ferry  across  the   Kraser  at Mission City, and told him to go  to  work as  the one and only  deckhand on the government ferry,    and  without consulting the captain.
