But to get down to 'business,  what are the people of Abbotsford  going to do about the Fall Fair?  The excellent reputation established last year should not be lost ^ m no  sight of. The -prizes awarded the di *  exhibition were a .credit to the  foresight and I energy of the president and those who assisted him  in promoting the day's outing with  profit and pleasure to so mariy  people. It's not too late to get  busy and have a similar boost for  the* district this year again.

This casts no  rt-  flections on last year's staff or the  3taff of past years,' but shows that  it is "the aim.of the trustees to keep  up the high standard of-Abbots-'  ford schools, by engaging nothing  out' the best teachers., in the past  the* scholastic ability that guided  the; youth and beauty "of the lowu  has  been  highly   satisfactory' and  the work  done ,h'as been  of such  in excellent grade; that it has been  in inducement'tb settlers to locate  . :i.the 'district where the1 best pos>-  sible public school education could  ve secured.   When  the men, with  ���������.uailies,   come ' here   to   purchase  ���������ponies for themselves one of IhC  ���������likely questions that are asked is,  .vh.it' advantages are there for tht  'education Itol^the^^hoys. ;and > girts.

AJbbotsford is a central point  in a business and! social way, and  the trustees believe in making it  als oan educational centre and have  governed themselves accordingly  Let the parents give the teachera  and trustees every support in their  honest efforts.

FRIDAY,'   AUG. 30    191-2  ��������� 'Many people in Abbotsford have  asked the meaning of "the meeting,  of the Fraser Valley Municipal Pub  licity ��������� Bureau at Huntingdon on  Sopt. 20t!h, and what it is .intended to fiimlly accomplish that will  r  be of material benefit to the Boards  of Trade, municipalities and individual's who join and pay $5 per  month.  The one great aim of the bureau  is to bring into- the Fraser .Vahey  a   good class of   settlers.   - It    id,  claimed, and many agree with the  contention, that many.that would  '���������    take iup land, be good settlers aud  a   credit to the Valley, do nct:near  much about the Fraser Valley from  real estate agents and others, who  make it their business to meet Lhe  new people who travel across the  mountains into our beautiful province.' It-is   true   that//the  conditions at present h\ the Fraser Valley,  owing   to  the high   price '(.of  acreage  particularly,  are  such  as  to make  the rich fertile land lying between  Hope and the coast,  not   -a    poor   man's\ 'opportunity  Land   lying   along   present -.good  roads���������for we have ,a 'number of  , ���������   excellent -roaclis-Ojosts   the   purchaser so much that unless an intending'settler has two  or  Uiree  thousand dollars/ he is unable to  settle  on   the  fiye  and  ten -acre  blocks offered- for sale and makn  .a   comfortable,   easy   country life.  If new roads were opened up, Lhus  placing just as fertile land on the  market, as there is at present, it  would have the tendency to lower the  price   of that  already .pu  the   market,'  and   would   give  : a  more varied choice.   We who haw  resided  in the Fraser Valley,   believe that our own particular district, wherever that may be, is   a  Garden   of   Eden���������>a   paradise   oi.  earth, the soil and climate of winch  is unequalled anywhere in Canada  The present rate  of progress  is  not rapid  enough .to suit,most of  us.   The.coast cities, are growing  There i3   a   constant increasing demand for butter/eggs and vegetables by  the people right  at our  very door.   These people who live  in  cities   are patriotic enough  tu  purchase the home grown product,  if it can  be secured  at' prices  iii  keeping with that already on  the  market.   The products of ourt province  in   competition   with   other  provinces and countries have won  honors.   Our ��������� potatoes  in   competition  with   the  whole world   Have  won laurels, and the; other garden  products   are   equally   good;   our  fruit  is  the  talk  of  the ok?'''land.  But there is  not enough of these  good things and yet! there is idle  land, while the demand is iiicreai.  ing.   Just ..where   the   blame  "lies,  and what is the cause of the pics-  e'nt  lack   of  attracting settlers is.  one   of.   the   many" objects   of i..t������"  Bureau.  We. all know what, the B. C. El  ectric railway line h'as done forth*'  districts through which it passes.  Close to the line the settlers ovi-vj  year are becoming more and more  numerous. As much will be done  for the 'north banks of the Fraser  when the  new tram line, is' built  and  in   running  order.   Then taking these two roads as the basis  of isettlemeiiit, roads should, follow  out(to the north and south, and it  would not hurt-if they, were built  immediately,   but   tho   municipalities .through which these carhneu  are ��������� built  or are to  be built,  are-  building roads as fas tas the revenue of the municipalities can afford, somo say  faster.     Then    it  would bo the business of. tho Bureau to secure money to build more'  roada.   The  only  place  to  secure  this would be from: the' ^rovinchil  government, which  each year re-*  ceives immense revenue from  tlie  timber lands of 'the province. \l is  not the intention of the Bureau to  put its hand into the treasury of  the province unnoticed but put up  such a  strong ease; to the powers  t'liat  be,  that  the giVat  financial  institution would be only too giau  to   assist   in,  the   good   (ivork .ol  building roads,   should  immediate  and satisfactory results be,'imminent  The examples of isolation .within, isound of oho. whistles of the C.  iJ.

The shove-Is they were,  jski'g  were known  as  Irish' shovels,  with  a  square-cornered   blade  about  ID   in.   long.     The   work' progressed  but slowly, and the sub-contractor In  charge rebuked lii������ workmen for not  making   quicker   progress.     One   of  them  replied ,that  If he  would grind  ofif 'the corners of tire shovels it would  be easier to get themMuto the earth,  and consequently tih&y woitfd be able  to work more quickly.

Certain  Women   Make  a  Business   of  Attending' Charity Card- v  farties to Client.  -Eleven women were refused admission recently to a charity card-party  organized at the Church of St. Francis,  Assisi at Brooklyn, because they were  believed to' be card-sharpers. An in-'  -v-estigation which was started' unearthed- the' fact that a- number of  women make a business of attending  such .affairs of the gamblers who  haunt Transatlantic liners'. -The women .are not professional gamblers,  but (members" of respectable", families,  who are unable, to.resist ,the temptation .to cheat at cards."        ;  It has'-become known that women  band themselves- together .-for concerted work; by lip signals, by marking cards with tiny pin-pricks, and,  otherwise, 'and, 'according to Father.  Kelleher, of St. .Francis Assisi,-who  discovered the -latest conspiracy, even:  know.how to stack the cards. .  Father    Kellheer's.   discovery    wasj  due to an extraordinary accident. He  was  riding on  a'Brooklyn  train-car-'  when he overheard two women seated;  next to him discussing how. they intended to capture the prizes  at the'  St. Francis party by cheating.  Father  Kelleher told the .other priests of the  church, 'and they, watched  the doorway of  the 47th Regiment Armoury,  where a card-party" was being -given.  Father Kelleher 'detected the two women with nine others as .they  were  endeavouring   to   enter.    They   were  told that they could hot get in.    No  explanation was offered, and the women did not demand any, but hastily  disappeared.     The     churches      and  charity   organisations   are :generally  being notified of the discovery,  with  the  suggestion   that concerted  effort  should be made this winter to break  up the practice: -It is a disputed point  whether the. women are amenable to  arrest oh acharge of 'Ciieating.  - FAMOUS HNUFJ'-TAKEKS  The eighteenth century - was- toe  age of snuff-taking "par excellence."  The custom was general among all  classes of people, it was an act of  politeness .for woll-bred men-to offer  their snuff-boxes to well-bred women. Women themselves carried  their own boxes, and ��������� interchanged  pinches with the ��������� gentlemen and. in"  Canada it was, fashionable amongst  the officials.  ��������� At fashionable dinner-parties after  the'cloth was . removed snuff-boxes  were passed around.

He couW'  not abide -the narrow 'confines  of  a  b'ox.    Frederick the Great resembled  him in  this  respect.    Both Napoleon,  and Wellington-wore prodigious snuff-  takers, but Washington indulged only  moderately.'    Jefferson   was   fond   of  snuff, as his waistcoat and 'frill often  1 showed.

Some proverbs of tho Tripolitan  people ' which have lately been  published, in a Turkish paper show  what a refreshing fountain of wisdom  is a.bout to be stopped up by Italian  aggression.

"If a dog has/ to be beaten," says-  EKthlr'd, -with a familiar though' "perhaps  more elegant ring,  "there will-  be no' lack of sticks."  A fourth proverb ,:points . out' that  "'Whoever is seeking pearls must" go,  to the depths of the ocean." Yet  another "shrewdly remarks that "Even  a sooth-sayer ca,nnot' foretell his own  fate."

After the rehearsal  was concluded  I  went upon  the stage.   Augustus Harris was talking to his military adviser. He beckoned me to approach.   'Klein, I want to  introduce   you   to  my  friend,   Major  Kitchener, who has been kind enough  to   come   and   help   me   with   this  "soldiering" work. What.do you think  of it?

" ' '   '  In "loom" times' newspapers toll us  that "Bulls" are having it all tuolv  own way. In bad .times it appears  that tho' "Bears" are getting' aiis  innings. What, then, are "Bulls" and  "Bears."  Let us'first glance at the customers  to the Stock Exchange. There is the  genuine investor, who is.content with  anylhing up to 4Vi per cent, and  sound security. Next comes a little  more difficult man to satisfy. , For  ho wants .,5 per cent, on his money  and .a. chance .of capital appreciation  in his stock or share. Lastly ��������� and  J this is the client we are dealing with  H.   M.   "S." CommbnwoauFi' from   tlie  fate of the Montague  when  sbe  ran.  aground In a dangerous place.  The battleship Montague was abandoned   as  a  hopeless   wreck  off  the,  Cornish coast, but her sister ship, the  Commonwealth, was safely got off by  the muscular exertion of her crew  The  Commonwealth   ran   on   to  an  uncharted rock-when-returning from  target,,   practice,  . and ,   was     badly  damaged.   She was so nicely balanced  in her lodgment, however, that it was  decided;  after  reversing  the  engines  had failed to extricate her. to try the  experiment    of    mustering    all    the  available  hands  en   the  extreme  aft  and setting them to jump in unison!  The   regular  jumping  of.- .twentv-five  tons -of solidly-bu:it seamen  had  the/  effect of making the huge vessel rock  sea-saw  fashion   until   she  gradually  floated off with ' the  rising-aide.    In  fifteen, minutes  she  was  afloat,  and  saved.  ������ess"  PROPRIETORS,  asmmssmma������^,  ���������more   particularly   ���������   there   is , the  speculator who swarms in the mining,  rubber,   and   oil    share   markets   in  active times.    He, pays but little regard to any of the question's that are  , all important to the other two classes.  The  speculator delights  in possibili-,  ties,,probabilities, rumours, prospects,'  in fact all the varied ingredients that  go to make an appetising meal for a  healthy, robust "Bull."  A Peep at the "Bulls" and "Bears"  A "Bull"  is  a speculator "for the  rise," a purchaser  who hopes to sell  at  a   profit,   if, possible   before   the:'  settling day comes round, and not one  who  intends  to  take  the  shares off-  the market. , He is known as a "stale  .bull,",when .after waiting wearily for  the rise that never seems to come he  sells in disgust.    The "Bear"  is the,  ���������speculator who comes-along'when; he  [thinks money can be made by selling;  ���������he  fattens,   of. course,  on-the' stale  'bull. "When a successful "Bull" sells  ;he. differs   from   the   "Bear"   in   that  .he takes his profits or cuts his losses,  ;whereas   the "Bear" is- 'only ' just  .setting out. to make  them.    Thus' a  ."Bull" taking his profits  does  so by'  'selling   at   a   higher   price   what  he  ibough't 'at 'a lower one.   -The "Bear"  ;sells'not because he has ^hares in his  ;possession upon which he desires,to  .realise a profit, but-because ;he. thinks'  ;he .can 'sell you-' or -me 'some shares-  now. at, say, $15, which before setting  '���������day he .can <go iiitd,,,the .market 'and  ���������secure   at,   say,- $10;: the   difference  between his selling and buying price'  is his profit.   In effect, he has sold us  .something at $15 which he has bought  .���������at $10< - But' he, sold" it first taking |  -the risk of "covering" himself  at a'  lower .price before-he is called upon  to   settle-, up.

The way Turkey  put p>add to Greece's' account in 1897  is fresh within most people's memory:  He is a great fighter' because he is  physically a strong man. The Turkish  peasantry,  from- whom  the Army is  recruited,  have  to  work hard  for a  bare   living,   and   there   is   no   room  ' among  them  for  weaklings.    Therefore,  the Turkish  soldier is capable  of   tremendous   feats   of 'endurance,'  and can live on nothing, or next door  to it.   Then he is accustomed to fighting almost  from   babyhood.

' cantatious are muttered over some or  S, *~  ��������� The whole of the doing part of our  nature depends, in. the ''first place,  upon a most' important' fact of our  nature, which is that we possess in-  js'fcthcts.- All these instincts exist in  order to serve our lives'in one \way.  or.-another, and their special business  is to urge us to action. When we  thus act' un'der't'he influence of an in:  stihet we- commonly have 'ascertain  kind of feeldng or emotion, which corresponds'with the instinct that is at  work.  One of the moat interesting and  valuable of our instincts is curiosity.  In the history of the long-line of beings who have produced .us, .'curiosity  is a high instinct and one that is'late  in appearing. We do not find it  among the lowest animals, but. it is  conspicuous in the highest kinds' of  monkeys.  The particular' kind of feeling or  emotion that goes with the mdcmot  of curiosity is what we call wcuder.  Thus, when we ask a question of ourselves, we often say: "I wonder why"  so-and-so: And this instinct grows,  as mankind grows, from the most  trivial curiosity about trivial things  until it leads men to devote their  whole lives to the discovery of the  laws and wonders of Nature.  Children, therefore, ask questions  because they are human, and because  the possession of the instinct of onr-  iosity and the feeling of wonder is  a very great and worthy fact about  the human race. Without it we  should not be driven on to learn and  to know, and without knowing cur  place iri the world would not be nearly so safe as it is. The trouble 'is  that so many of us stop asking questions when we grow up.  .
