M. Pratt, whose ill-  health has' necessitated his resignation from the management of the  Growers. Mr. Steuart t>as attained  success as both a grower and a shipper and has been closely associated  with Mr. Pratt since the latter took  over the management, so is thoroughly conversant with the needs of  t he business. A. T. Howe, president  of the Growers, has issued a statement expressing the appreciation of  the directors of the good work done  by Mr. Pratt druing his short stay-  in office and their deep regret thai  the precarious state of his health has  rendered it necessary for him to relinquish tho work.  Some of the up-country papers  are passing severe criticism on Mr  Pratt for his resignation at the present time, one paper stating that "it  is felt that Mr. Pratt's resignation is  insufficient. He handed in his rosig  nation on Saturday evening after a  consultation with his medical adver-  ers, and on Sunday morning he was  ton his way south by car. There is a  feeling throughout tlie distict that  thero is more, behind Mr. Pratt's sudden exit from Associated affairs than  appears on the surface. It is not admitted that a man of his physique  could in the short time he has' been  at the helm become a physical wreck.  His departure in such a manner has  not been satisfactorily explained and  that can only be done by Mr. Pratt  himself."  One of the' most; successful and  well attended footbajr meetings ever  held in the Fraser 'Valley was the  annual meeting held in the Bank  of Montreal chambers on the 16t*i  last. % ,  Prominent cnthuiasts present, included the following officers' of the  B. C. Football Association, Mr.  Campbell, president; v Mr.. Caver's,  sec.-treas.; Mr. Morton, ex-sec.-treas.  also Mr. J. Haslett, president of the  Vancouver and District league, who  addressed the meeting! Langley  United, Clayburn . ari'd Mission City  wore represented,, and , stated that  they would place teams in the league  this year.  Mr Campbell explained how the-B.  C. Football Association was govern.-  ing football; Mr. Cavers outlined  the referee question,, and Mr. Haslett, with a few vigorous remarks,  strongly appealed for those interested in football to get together for  the good of the game.  As a result of-the.,, candid negotiations, it was . decided that the  Fraser Valley Football League  would affiliate with the B. C. Football Association. ���������-���������'- ��������� ' ������������������.'   '.  It, was agreed to .meet again* on  Thursday, Sept. 6th,u if possible . to  secure the hall for that evening,  when the B. C. Football Association  officials ��������� will again "*'attend. Final  entries of clubs will -.be made at this  meeting, officers elected for the season, a schedule drafted and the  Fraser Valley branch' of the B. C.  Association formed.'     v-   ������������������ ���������'  '   ���������  The secretary-treasurer's' report  was read and adopted-by .the League  and showed that after all outstanding debts had been paid, there was  a balance of $3.45 at.i tl.he close of  tlie year.        " "r " ��������� "   The province under the B. C.  Football Association is divided into  districts', and each district is governed' by a board of control which  has complete control ,of all cup tie  competitions in that district, handles  all protests and disputs, and registers players.        ,  The Fraser Valley is a district  under the B. C. Football Association  and it is therefore essential that a  board of control for this district be  elected from the Valley, and for this  reason all the old time football  players, as well as the younger  players are urgently requested to be  presten at the meeting to be held  on September 6th so as the best  possible working board may be selected. The Fraser Valley League  will only have charge of the competitions for the League cup (which is  the Haddrell) and all other cups will  be under the control'of the Fraser  Valley District Board of Control.  FAREWELL   DANCE  A very, enjoyable farewell dance  was given Mrs. J. Kerr on Wednesday evening in the Orange hall, when  a gathering of friends attended'and  availed themselves of the opportunity, of wishing Mrs. Kerr, godspeed  on her long journey, which she and  her little son Peter will take on  their, visit t o friends and relatives  in Scotland The evening was spent  in dancing, songs and recitations;  music being supplied by Mrs; Wells  and Mr; J.

An active campaign is  being carried on as it believed that  as it stands at the present time the  Ilopo-Princeton advocates have the  best of the fight.  It 8eems.the most logical route for  a provincial highway for many reasons would surely advertise the beauties of the Fraser Canyon, over which  so many people have gone miles to  see by railroad. By auto it would reveal, beauties not known to the railway .traveller. -   ���������  After mature consideration of the  matter,, some.months ago, the Miss-  sion City board-.of trade-.passed a  resolution endorsing the Fraser River route.  While locally it does, not much interest-people ..of the, Fraser Valley  which route is taken, yet looking at  it from ihe broad standpoint of usefulness as well as: beauty the River  jouteiwould; appear, the more logical  of the two.  California,; if -a law. is-passed,' that  auto cops will have to; remain in the  open, not hide behind the bush a)  though they were playing some, kind  of guerilla warfara,-is .certainly taking a step la the right directi^s-  It has always appeared so silly for a  man or .men to, be paid out of .the  public monies to keep:watch for the  speed artist; and to have to do it  behind some'bush,'or probably building. ; We.do.not want the speedman  to carry on.-his-practice but at the  eame time he-knows, the law of tlu  country and should be made to respect it, a; thing he will not do if he  is being spied upon, or.thinks he is  being spied upon.     . -    -  Let B. C. have a law of this kind.  Our policemen .are :��������� usually- big good-  looking fellows and- sometimes quite  young, and-our.laws should give  them a. chance,.to stand up straight  and be imposing.  The .auto,cop .hiding .behind a bush  or.fence or in.a< building,..waiting tc  oatch some victim,, is on a* par, with  the "stool-pigeon" that our provincial government employs to. catch the  bootlegger.    What can be more des  In Quebec, the tax for pleasure  vehicles is levied according to horsepower as follows: 90c per h. p. or,  fraction thereof, but shall not exceed  $80 in all. For commercial vehciles  (a) If wholly or partially equipped  with non-pneumatic tires, where the  capacity does not exceed one. ton, $50  and so on by grades of tonnage and  tax until when it exceeds three tons,  the tax is. $50 per ton or fraction  thereof: (b) commercial vehicles e-  quipped with pneumatic tires, if i  does.notexceed ont ton, $25, and so  on by grades until when it exceeds  three t6ns,. the tax is $40 per ton  or fraction thereof.  If the British Columbia government levies a three cent tax on gas'O  line without reducing the motor taxes now in force, British Columbia  will thus be one of the heavily motoi  taxed province in Canada.���������Coluinb'  Ian.

If a man is  known to break our laws, have him  punished, and punished according to  the extent that* .he has-broken the  laws, but do riot spy on him. Of  course it-is'said that:a good .way ,is  to. set.a thief,;to catch a thief, but  to. have, a,class .of men spied on'by  stool-pigeon, who now uses unheard  of methods is not British,- neither  will it. make a criminal learn to re  spect the la w,1-which is after all the  crux of the matter.  ���������Besides it makes enemies for the  government.  .. Taxation of motor vehicles' in Canada, has become an important factor  in provincial finances.* There, are  reasons-why motor vehicles should be  subject to an annual tax. Motor traffic must be controlled, also, and this  is a reason for close government supervision and control.  The Citizens Research Institute of  Canada has compiled a survey' o)  motor, taxes in. the Dominion, which  is of interest at this time when there  is- a suggestion. even government intimation, that a tax on gasoline will  , ���������-"���������sed.  Motor taxation in Western Canada  is as-follows:  British Columbia���������-The first registration  fee  is  $10.   .The. annual license-fee is,*based- on taxation unite  arrived at as follows: The value    of  the motor vehicle in dollars plus the',  weight.of.the motor vehicle express  ed in-pounds.*. The tax rate if.;aa-.!������>���������;  lows: JEvery motor vehicle representing 2500. taxation units or less, $22,  50; and.,for each motor vehicle oy.er!.  2500 taxation, units, $22.50, and fori  each  hundred  taxation - units in  ex-J  cess  of  2500, an  additional  tax .of  90 cents.  Al berta���������The tax. is levied according to the length af the wheel based  in inches.      For motor vehicles' not  so badly ignroant of the way to relax that they do not even rest pro-  porly during their sleeping hours.  They toss about and wake only half-  rested.  On the other hand the person who  knows how to relax can attain perfect  rest in a few minutes. And these few  moments need-not even be in a place,  of quiet and privacy. You can rest  m the midst of the noise and turmoil  jf your everyday surroundings, if  you have the will power and the  knowledge of how to do it.  The secret is just a trick of the  muscles. You must lose all feefing  of tension. Now tension is so constant a.companion of our busy lives  that many have grown accustomed to  .it and do not even realize its presence. But it is there, nevertheless,  and you will soon realize how strongly it is imbdeed in your habits.when  you try to drive it out.  But you must drive it out to relax  Slump down in your seat for an instant and let a feeling of utter inactivity steal, over you. Don't you  feel the tightness slowly leaving the  muscles which hare been "at attention" all day  Your mind, too, must share this  relaxed feeling. Don't think of anything. Let your thoughts drift completely away from you. Your mind  snould be a blank. This may seem  hard to do at first, but after a few  practises you will become accustomed  to the feeling and will learn how to'  call it up at will.  Close your eyes'. This will help  to take your mind off of the diffe-  culties which confront you, or the  problem that is in your mind.  A few seconds of complete relaxation will often bring untold saving  of your nervous energy. It gives you  a fresh start. You will find yourself  far niore alert physically and your  mind more clear.  Of the two kinds' of relaxation,  mental and physical, the former is  most important. Mental relaxation  is possible,in two degrees, complete  and- partial. Complete relaxation  means the banishing of all thought  in other words, unconsciousness'.such  as sleep. This is the most beneficial  form, but is hardly practical for a  busy brain that merely wants rest  ,f,or ,a brief interval between its .hardworking, periods. In such cases,,  partial relaxation is gained and is  beneficial, by just turning your  ���������thoughts to some pleasant memory  .such .as your last summer's vacation  ,a ,d,eHg-htful day at the beach or a  strftll in- the -woods.���������Mary Parsons  in the Sun. ���������  Iii your face to face contacts with people, your appearance, your bearing and many other things help you tc  make the right impression.

Because President Coolidge desired to have a rest and not be harassed with business matters, he was  travelling almost incognito when he  passed -through Calgary and stopped  at Banff a year ago. according to  Mr. Mainzer, and although he wat������  ���������accompanied by a party of C.

The usual method is to leg ban.l  the chicks when hatched with metal  bands, such as are used for banding  pigeons. As1 the shank grows, the  chicks should be gone over and these  bands opened up slightly early in  the second week.  About the beginning of the third  week, instead of . opening up the  bands again, the bands are removed  and placed in the wing, where they  become a permanent mark. The  pigeon band has a simple fastener,  and can be secured at practically any  feed store.  The band is located on the outer  edge of the wing web. In placing it,  the skin of tho wing between tlie  joints is pierced with a sharp pointed knife at a point where there aro  no prominent blood veins, to a width  of a quarter of an inch. The band  is then placed through the slit and  fastened by means of the device provided for that purpose. Care shouid  be taken not to pinch or catch the  skin or a sore may develop, but if  the band is free, it will act during  the natural life of the bird.  When tho fowl is mature it is not  convenient to rely" on this band for  trap nest and egg recording purpose;),  because tho wing is fully feathered  and the band not easy to find. To  overcome this large leg bands should  be put on before the birds are put  into winter quarters.

WEEK IN CAGARY  Temperatures have ranged higher  .nd the- weather this week has been  omewhat more settled.  As a result the consumption of  'riiit increased, and the markets  generally cleaned up nicely. However  ���������lackberries moved rather slowly at  .liroo hailocks for a quarter, during  . he first pari, of the week, but the  ���������uppy falling off, late, caused a raise  ;n  price.  At date of writing    there    is    not  mch American fruit on the market,  snd the consumer is ready to buy B.  C apples, peaches' and plums.  A carload of No. 2 U.C. Tragedy  ."ilums arrived this week and cleaned up rapidly, tho, price would indicate (hat in order to competr* successfully American plums will have to be  sold here below cost of production.  Hot house tomatoes are now selling slowly, and with local market  men offoring them at 12 cents'per II).  there is little call for 13. C.'s excepting for country shipments.

EDMONTON   BULLETIN  This market is pretty well loaded  up with certain kinds of B. C. fruits,  and vegetables at.the present time,  and prices on some of these lines  have pretty nearly touched bottom.  Thero is apaprently an over-supply of  cucumbers and peach plums' for instance, and the prices some of this  ���������stuff is going at are as low as we  have ever seen. As we have mentioned in previous reports', there is  no demand at all for peach plums  and these cannot be sold at a price  which will apparently net the grower  anything.  Cucumbers-this year have not been  in tho demand that has existed here  ether years and they are not selling  very rapidly, even at the low prices  they are quoted at. We have heard  that there aro going to be 'considerable quantities of local cucumbers  ill is year and this may make a difference on imported stock.  .The demand for  berries has  been  FAVORABLE FOR AN  ABUNDANT HARVEST  With haying largely over and the  harvesting of grains soon to be iji  full swing, the Bank of MonlreaPs  weekly crop report issued* on Aug  9th shows that conditions generally  throughout the Dominion, while not  entirely fulfilling earlier hopes, still  continue favorable for an abundant  harvest. In Alberta    ��������� everything  points to the best crop since 1915,  but in Saskatchewan and Manitoba  considerable damage has been caused by heat, rust and saw fly. In  Quebec a heavy hay crop is reportea  in some districts with a yield below  average in others. In Ontario hay  and fall wheat aire harvested, the  yield being heavy. The average fruit  crop expected. Weather conditions  continue favorable for all crops in  the Maratime provinces, while in B.  C. hay and grain are both yielding  good crops. Details further.

Regina district���������Prospects generally are for an average wheat crop.  Yield will be 'reduced in Southern  Saskatchewan by damage from rust  and saw fly. Prospects for coarse  grains continue satisfactory.  Winnipeg district���������Cool weather  is checking rust development and em  abling grain to fill. Considerable  wheat cutting under way and results  tend to . confirm expectation of a  somewhat below average crop. There  will be an average crop, coarse grains  which are less affected by rust than  wheat.  Province  of Quebec  Montreal and the eastern townships districts���������The yield of hay is  heavy, in other districts it is below  average. Grain and roots promise  good 'results. Potatoes in satisfactory  condition. - Apples below average.  Pasture is,good in Montreal arid eastern townships districts, but rain is  needed generally. ' .  Province of Ontario  '- Crops in some localities are suffering from drought and rain is urgently neded. Hay and fall wheat practically all harvested, yield heavy.  Barley and oats' have ripened rather  prematurely owing. to hot weather.  and the crop may be lighter than w<;s  expected. Corn has made rapid  growth the past week. Roots are  making satisfactory progress. The  yield of fruits is up to the average.  Pasture requires moisture.  Maritime   Provinces  Weather  conditions  favorable  for  What may be affected by feed���������,  is a superior or inferior cow born oi  made To answer this' question definitely has required and will require a deal of careful and well con:  ceived investigational , work. ' The  matter is by no means settled yet  but it is advisable to give out some  of the information now available.  Feed is supposed to affect size, type  and production; and though it would  take a whole book to cover all these  points, a few words may not be amiss  here.  Feed as affecting size���������There is  no doubt that a heifer fed a heavy  grain ration will develop into a larger cow than one reared on roughages alone; but the difference in. siz*  is much more marked during tlie  first few years and less so at maturity. Experiments conducted in Missouri showed the height at the withers of an eighteen-months-old, heavy  fed heifer to be 3.5 inches more than  for the poorly fed one, whilst at  maturity the difference was only an  inch.  * Feed as affecting type���������Liberal  feeding may affect type temporarily  in that heifers so fed will be heayier  and show beefiness of form instead  of the angular conformation looked  for in the good dairy cow. If,however  the heifer has inherited from her  parents the factor of heavy milk production, she will usually milk off  this extra fat during her first lactation period and ultimately develop  into as good a producer as her more  scantily fed mate.  Feed as affecting production���������j  few years ago an experiment was  conducted at Cape Rouge with twins  so as to minimize the chance of er-  ro" due to breeding. One of them was  veil fed,'produced 11.o:i2 pounds'of  milk testing 5.7 5 durtaghor firs two  periods of lactation, and qualified  for;,record of performance; her. sister was not well fed, produced .T,V ������17  pi-unds of milk tai*;iic 4.45 during  the two first periods of lactation.  But experiments'"conducted, in the  United States have shown that "the  mature is not influenced to any appreciable extent bv any ordinary  variations in the ration fed during  the growth period."  What course to follow���������Under  certain conditions, such as preparing  pure bred stock for sale or exhibition  or when it Is' desirable to increase  size somewhat, it might pay to feed  very heavily on grain, and it must,  be said that' there is no fear of hurting heifers in doing so. for if the  cows are bred right they will'lose the  surplus body fat soon after calving  But, in general the most profitable  course to follow will be an intermediate one, between the two extremes;  on very good pasture, no concentrate,  and at other times all the clover hay  they will consume, with silage and  roots when available, and a grain allowance of from 2 to 3 pounds per  animal per day, according to age.������������������  Dominion Experimental Notes.

(From the Fraser Valley Record)  In the early hours of Wednesday  One. Man lies in the Mission City  morgue and another lies in the Mission Memorial Hospital as the result  of an accident on the Dewdney Trunk  Road, about a mile east of Hatzic on  late Tuesday evening or early Wednesday morning, he car ��������� No. -19 128  overturned'into the ditch pinning one  of the two occupants under the door  next to the driver's seat, while the  other occupant was so shut in that he  was unable to get. out or move tlie  car in any way.  Mr. E. Tlickling in his car and Mr.  Richard Bird, both of Mission City,  were returning from a drive to Nicomen Island when tho accident happened. Mr. I-Jickling says that "Pick  was learning to drive and !i id driven  on the island, but coming near the  C. P. R. tracks asked him to drive  which he did until the car reached  the Dewdney pumps, when 'Dick" a-  ���������gain took the wheel. He says the  car was going slow, probably about  ton miles an hour. Ho does not understand how the accident happened  About 2:30 two young follows' going past stopped and on finding tha  some one was under the car, hurried  for help, feeling that they were unable to lift the car. Help was secured and on raising the car Richard  Bird was found to be dead, with ,his  head broken open, while E. Hickling  although shaken up, did not appear  to be much the worse. Hickling was  brought into Mission City" by Mr. .J  A. Tuppcr andtaken to the Mission  Hotel, and later taken to tho hospital. The body of Bird was taken to  the morgue.  No part of the Dewdney roa'd is  too wide, but just right west of Mr.  Naylor's place is an especially narrow  place,, and this is where the accident  happened. Here the drop is about 9  feet from the road to where the car.  lay overturned. The track': would  indicate that the car was not going  fast. From where the first sign of  the auto left the road until where  the tracks ceased to appear, and the  car urned over is abdu fifteen feet.  -The car, an Oldsmobile, was not  very badly damaged. The top and  windshield were broken. But on  being turned over into proper position it came into Mission City under  it's own power.  Constable Dawson secured a jury  from among the spectators about  9:30 on Wednesday morrffhg and so  far fts possible inquiry into the accident was made. The jury chosen were  Messrs R. Wilson, P. Routledge, A.  Derbyshire, H. T. Lock and H. Judd.  The inquest Avas held Wednesday  afternoon at 2 .p. m. when tlie body  was viewed at the morgue. It was  decided to adjourn the further inquiry into the matter until Mr. Hick-  ling was able to attend, which it was  thought would be- about 10 o"cJof  today.  The funeral of deceased Richard  Bird will be held on Friday afternoon.  The deceased  has  one  brother in  B.

Another example of the way in  which the business men of Langley  and Surrey support the farmer was  given recently when the sum of $65  was donated to the owners of herds  that . produce the- highest average  weight of butter fat per cow in one  year. One of these cups is for small  herds', while the other is for large  ones. This is just one of the many in-  tsances of this co-operation which  is as readily, given to fairs or other  purposes, while in addition it is' to  these same men that an application  is made for credit1 when it is, necessary.     ���������  Therefore in order to  game says a prominent  the farming community, it is up to  the farmer to. reciprocate . and give  his support as readily by patronizing  the various general stores throughout the country.

A law has been passed in California, through tho efforts of the Automobile club c-f southern California  whereby it is unlawful to set police  traps' to catch motorists on '.he highways, according to F. O. Bonnell.who  is a motor visitor to Vancouver. Mr  Bonnoll in conversation with tho  auto club official stated that speed  cops in California now must keep in  plain'sight on the highways and not  hide or lay traps, this' practise being  considered by motorists as being very  unsportsmanlike.

WOULD A HOLISM TWO  HALF  HOLIDAY  VICTORIA, Aug. 17.���������The majority of the members of the City Council favor the abolition of the half-  holiday for retail stores and would  assist any move for its' abolition, according to Alderman Ceorge Sang-  ster.  "I  see  that  tho  council  is  being  urged to pass a resolution in regard  to the half-holiday," said the alderman. "The matter came up when  the bylaw to regulate the hours of  peddlers was before the council. It  was made quite clear at that time  the stores' being open six full days a  week, and the killing of the peddlers'  bylaw was due to that fact. The  question was discussed with the retailers at meetings of the Public  Works Committee, and I. as chair  man, assured the delegations that the  council -would do what it could to  ap.isst any movement to abolish the  half-holiday. The council cannot  abolish the half-holiday. I think' it  has already made its position quite  clear without passing any resolution."
