Limited  ABBOTSFQRD'S "STOKE OF QUALITY"  ���������I t   M  ������.-*r  THE ABBOTSFORD POST  THE JkBBUiwvn*  Published Every Friday'  /"      J. A. BATES, Editor and- Proprietor  FRIDAY, AUGUST  y1,  lfl23  There is another little- campaign tJiat   wc  people of the Fraser Valley, who live in the  fruit belt would like to see Vancouver undertake, and it would be one that would do a lot  of good and help to make the big city, prosperous as well as the Valley more able to purchase goods from the wholesaler of that'big-  city, and that is a buy at home campaign of  all fruit that is produced in B. C. in preference  to American  fruit.      Any fruit, of any kind,  that is produced in B. C. in sufficient quantity to meet all demands, should be bought in  preference'to American fruit. The same would  apply to any other B. C. farm product.    Take  into consideration the amount of money that  goes out of the city of Vancouver   for   farm  ��������� produce each year and it will amount to a big  healthy pile of good simoleons.    .13. G. fruit is  just as good as any fruit produced-anywhere,  and there is not many who will    say   otherwise.    Equal value for the same money.    If,  then this money were not going out of the  province it would be distributed throughout 13.  C. and eventually find its way back Lo the city  at "the coast to be used again and again.  When the man on the land has money he is  a liberal spender and we all have money. Just  consider what it would mean Lo tho province.  It may not be as big as the tourist trade, but  every little bit helps.  Vancouver has the name of getting pretty  near everything it goes after, w'hy not make  a try of it for just one year; then the "Buying  of B. C. Products" would sell like hot cakes tc  the farmers of the Fraser Valley.  "Oh, that mine enemy would write a letter   " does not need to be said by either Oliver  or Bowser in B. C. politics. It appears to be  a weakness of the new party. It will be noticed that neither of the two leaders do much  answering of these published letters, and why  should they. Gen. MacRae should take a leaf'  out of Senator Johnson's book and guide himself accordingly.' Senator Johnson formerly  governor of California while in the old country would not give the papers an interview  but wrote a letter to a person whom he had  reason to believe was .a friend of his. The  letter has' been doing some travelling- and is  now down in the Eastern States being road for  the amusement of the Senator's political enemies. Wonder if either Bowser or Oliver  takes as much delight in reading MacRae's  epistles?  There is one thing sure that when election  times comes around both Oliver and Bowsei  will have an answer to all these letters and also to the "Searchlights". There are always  two sides to a question; and to some of theee  that the new party arc bringing before the  public there will be three sides. The elector  is liable to become confused and' in the moment of apaprent weakness believe the last  story he hears and vote accordingly.  It is certain that the publicity that the genial general is giving to B. C. affairs shows he  is studying B. C. politics, and may have them  down to a fine point���������facts and figures at his  finger tips, when election time comes around.  However it is not ahvays the best posted man  who wins. The B. C. voter is in for some real  good political sport when John O. decides to  condescend toask the' people of B. G. for a  lease of his best job in the world.  Reading Senator Johnson's letter and remembering what Harding said about his, we  wonder if it is such a real good job that John  0. has after all. One time in Mission City he  said anybody could liave his job; but since  Mac has been writing these "letters John 0.  has changed his mind, and wants to:sit.'pat.'';-.  The work done by Boards of Trade throughout the Fraser Valley in the last fifteen years  has been an excellent work, and one well  worthy of the men who undertake. Numerous instances���������probably instances without  number���������could be quoted where a board of  trade has gotten something for your town and  district that meant so much to it that you did  not just know how to appreciate it at the time-  There is no emolument" attached to the work  done in boards of trade. ..It is a work that is  done for the sake of making the district where  a man lives better���������it is a work of love.  Sit down and think what the board of trade  has accomplished for this district since its  formation. Be fair to your fellow townsman  and give him a square deal in this matter.  You can't say that nothing "lias been accomplished; of course not everything that the  members have discussed has been successful  You would hate to see the members get disgusted and quit. Wouldn't you? Right down  deep, from where thought emanates, you are*  thankful that there is a,board of trade-in this  town to take ;up little matters with the government?  If then you think the board of trade of this  town has a place and a work to do, why dc  you permit so many hard things to be said by  men who are not members? Make a change  in your attitude and begin saying nice things  about the president, the secretary and the  other members of the board, and see what effect it will have. If you hear of something  that the board is trying to do for the town  give your advice, if you like, but at least give  them encouragement.  Throughout Canada the Board of Trade for  small and large towns is a recognized body,  to such an extent that laws have been enacted  to govern and make legal such meetings and  the general work of the board. Boards of  trade must therefore be important bodies,  and it shoud be the earnest desire of all true  citizens to help along all work that is for the  good of the community.    Hence be a booster.  A Telephone  It seems a long drawn out affair to ship  back to Ontario blocks of "wood to make  matches and then ship the matches to B. C.  for consumption. No wonder matches are  such a price. It would look much better to  have the matches made in B. G. ,No doubt  they are good matches seeing that they can  travel so far. Could 13. C. not give the Canadian Match Company some inducement to  move their plant to B. C?  In your face, to face contacts with people, your appearance, your bearing and many other things help you to  make the right impression. But in your telephone contacts,, theie is only one thing by which you can be judged  ���������your speech.  Do you cultivate an effective telephone personality?  Your voice is you. In the intimate contact which the  telephone gives, let your voice express all those qualities  which will induce favorable action on the part of the list-  oner.    It is worth while.  British Columbia Telephonedompany  Making  Use of Newspapers���������  C. H. Sawle, editor of the Omineca Herald, says  that a newspaper, whether a weekly or daily, is regarded as the one institution in the world which continues to draw manna from Heaven, and thus exists  purely for philanthropic purposes.  Owners of newspapers discovered some years ago  that the crop of manna was a failure and that there  was no seed for future sowing. In other words, the  press' was so put in the brow-sweating class. In recent years the press has endeavored to impress upon  public the difference between advertising and news  Some success has been achieved, but nothing like gen-  oral success.  Every person, every business and every institution  loves favorable publicity, but there are countless  thousands who still ask.for free publicity. The general public cannot conceive the number of requests for.  free advertising that the weekly press receives each  week, not only from local sources, but from governments, political parties', manufacturers,' corporations  of all kinds, lawyers, and wildcatters.  The press asks only for fair consideration. When  money is to be made through publicity that is advertising, then the press is entitled to be paid for its services.  There are two classes of free advertising seekers,  viz:, the possessors' or representatives of wealth who  figure that their own estimate of their own importance  will over-awe the press; the next big class is the timid  who have no faith in themselves, ideas, wares' or products, but hope to ride in at the expense of somebody  else. Both classes are finding the press is' no longer  conducted  without a cost  system.  The fair, open and above board advertisers find the  news columns of the press always open to them; in  fact, the press goes out of its way to advance their interests.  One of the greatest pleasures the press has' is advancing the interests of individuals, corporations or institutions. But the press' is a business and there are  certain things money is needed for, such as wages,  ���������overhead living expenes, and then of course there are  taxes���������strange .isn't it? Yet many had an idea the  press lived by good deeds alone. The Herald says:  "Running a paper is no Garden of Eden existence";  and there are many who agree with this statement.���������  Knderby Commoner.

Nothing is.more certain than that British Columbia  will have a heavy surplus of potatoes this year above  the consuming ability of our home population. The  remainder of the continent will likewise be well supplied according to government official crop reports;  but even if this were not the case, freight rates on  Ideal potatoes to distant points would prohibit their  movement or sale. ,  At the present time it is anticipated that the bulk of  Okanagan and Kootenay potatoes will be offered tc  the markets through the Associated Growers. This  plan may or may not mature. Vancouver Island  growers would apparently be content if they could  obtain possession of their adjacent markets, including Victoria, Lillooet, Ashcroft, Peniberton Meadows, and the entire Fraser Valley, intend to dump  their product into Vancouver and other lower mainland and valley consuming centres.  If this usual process of marketing should be repeated this season, all growers stand to lose heavily. The  mainland potatoes will be shipped to Vancouver Island  Kamloops potatoes will move to Vancouver and there  will be the usual confusion. If, in spite of abundant  bitter experience the growers are doubtful of these  probabilities, they can easily verify them by failing  to organize in time to handle the coming crop.���������  Farm and Home.  The Vancouver Automobile club  has' been informed that the best route  for Mount Rainier National park is  reached either from Seattle or Taco-  ma. A paved highway extends east  from Tacoma through Loveland park  for approximately 32 miles. An excellent gravel-surfaced highway next  is had through Alder, Elbe and Ash-  ford to the park boundary and .to-  Longmore Springs. The balance of  the journey of twelve and a half  miles to Paradise Valley is over an  excellent mountain road operated on  a control basis'. The entrance fee  to this national playground is $2.5.0.

Preparations for the movement of the crop have been made on a monumental scale and it is anticipated that this  year the Canadian National will handle a greater proportion of Canada's wheat yield than ever before, p  The vacuum air. circulation system mentioned in Bulletin No. 7 a-  roused considerable interests It is tbe  invention of Mr. S. E. Oliver, a brilliant chemist now residing in Calgary. The process is based on the  following facts, and is' as follows:  And contains three parts of carbon  dioxide to 10,000 parts of air, but in  an ordinary room, or in a car, from  causes not easily preventable, the atmosphere soon, becomes charged  with a much greater quantity.  Berries while growing absorb and  digest carbon dioxide, but as soon oa  picked this action ceaBesi  The air also contains mould germs  and these feed on carbon dioxide,  but as soon as picked this actios  ceases'.  The air also contains mould germs  and these feed on carbon dioxide.  When carbon dioxide settles on berries, the mould germs immediately  find feeding ground. Here they  settle and flourish.  The vacuum air circulation system is designed to' prevent this by  drawing a chemically prepared liquid  which destroys both completely.  The fan which' operates    for    this  purpose  redistributes  this    purified  air throughout the car.    The air   Is  also cooled as it passes through the  machine by the use, in   a    scientific  manner, of the following chemicals:  Sodium sulphate, sir parts.  Ammonicum Nitrate, five parte.  Dilute Nitric Acid four parts.  These chemicals, experiments nave  shown,  will  reduce the temperature  ninety degrees.  The space occupied by this machine would be hardly more than a  cubic yard. The power to run the  fan, both when the car is in motion  and at rest is a mere matter of de-  tai. The cost should not' exceed  five hundred dollars. Cars suitable  for this sytsem would cost less than  the refrigerator car now in operation  Seventeen vessels brought 150,000  pounds of halibut into Prince Rupert in one week.
