The Canadian potato crop report  will be read with interest hy the majority of Guide readers for potatoes  have been reported from prairies in  larger quantities during the past two  years than they ever have been lie-  fore. The report issued by D. Johnson, the Dominion Fruit Commissioner follows:  British Columbia���������The acreage is  estimated at about 5 per cent increase  over an average crop. The plants  are looking especially healthy and  give promise of a heavy yield.  Alberta���������An average crop is look-  ' ed for in this province.  Saskatchewan���������there is a substantial increase in the plantings. It is  too early to estimate' the yield.  Manitoba���������Indication liow for a  full average crop. ���������  Ontario���������In no case lias a decrease  in the acreage been reparted from  any commercial district. It is estimated that the acreage is considerable more than last year audi from b  per cent to 10 per cent above the  average. Present indications are for  a yield per acre ..considerably above  the average.  Quebec���������An increase in acreage is  reported with prospects for a yield  above the average. Some early plantings on low land were destroyed by  rain and continued cool weather, but  these have been replanted with late  varieties.  New Brunswick���������There has been a  20 per cent.'increase for the acreage  planted with prospects of a normal  yield per acre.  Nova Scotia���������Some'districts report  increased planting of from   2 5 to 3;j  per cent.    The province on the whole  is expected to show a substantial in-json  William  crease both in. acreage and,- yield.       fives.  Prince IDchvard Island���������This province also reports increased acreage  of from '10 to 15 per cent and, in addition to this, spraying is much more  general. With favorable weather  conditions a large crop should be  harvested.  PLUMS AND PJRUXIfiS  I notice a decided slackness in the  B. C. pack. The Washington pack i  well over weight. They seem lo figure that all the difference between a  real full basket and a slack one is the  few extra plums or prunes.  One jobber remarked that he had  bought Wenatchce plums in preference to B. C.'s at 10 cents a crate  more and Ho reckoned that ho received more than the difference in  price in the value of the fruit.  Your M- C weighed two baskets at  random. The B. C. weighed <l \*> lbs  and the Wenatehee 5 yt lb , and on  that ratio the buyer was right. The  quality is practically the same. Why  not put in the full weight and get the  market? The extra weight comes over  the line at 20 lbs per crate, freight,  duty and boxes are the same value  irrespective of the -contents. We  must equal the best pack and tho  margin of difference is so.'mall that  we would be fully repaid by the effort to be equal.

A. .BATES,  FRIDAY.   AUGUST   31,   15)17  . The limCter of the surtax placed upon the unorganized  parts ol' the province does not affect those living in municipalities, and consequently we cannot expect, their sympathy nor  their support in our criticism. They reap the benefit from something which has.cost thorn nothing. Or to put it in another  way," the surtax is class legislation, and the poor unfortunate  who owns porperty-in the unorganized parts oil" the province  pays the penalty. The receipts of the tax go to pay, we are  given to-understand, interest on bonds of the province, the whole  province reaping the benefit at the expense of a Tew, for the  surtax is imposed upon many men. who at the present time.are  almost unable to pay it, the regular taxation having fallen due  /(une 30th.  why not have demonstration roads.  For the amount of money spent on our roads during the  past quarter of a century~we haye very little to show for it.  It is no simple matter to build a road in the Fraser Valley that  will come through the wet season without being seriously im-'  paired, and the one great reason Tor this is that we do not go  about the matter of drainage when building in a scientific manner.  Crop Conditions  A friend of the present government says that it is ot the  '"sucker tax' but the surtax.  as  It is said the Kaiser does not change his som so often now,  he smells defeat.  Indications are that the cereal crop  of the Dominion will be quite,as good  ii! not better than that of a year ago  In the Eastern provinces, favorable  weather.has resulted in satisfactory  growth, and harvesting has already  'commenced. Threshing returns, it Js  fully expected, will show higher aver-  ago yields than for some years. In  the '"western districts,' the crops are  reported to be of an uneven character  hut on i.he whole an average year is  expected., The yield of wheat will  approximate that' o*f last' year, but  that of some coarse grains will bo  less.���������Bank of Commerce' Monthly  Commercial Lotter.   .  THE I-IAWA11ANS  ladies were hustling, the timekeeper  got curious and on inquiry (and he  had to do some sharp detective work)  he found that they were vicing with  each other to see who could earn the  most money. ��������� When they return to  their home city all of the money will  be handed over to the local Red  Cross.  Feeding tho Chickens  A United States senator says I. W. W. stands for Imperial  William's Warriors; but- we think it would have been more  to the point if he had said that it stood for Insane Willie's  Walkouts.  ~=.4  The Conscription act goes into to force immediately as  soon as the royal assent is'given. This looks right. The boys  now at the front need assistance and some- of them, a rest.  The air.at Ottawa is still surcharged with rumors almost  without end. It is only to be hoped that the result will be a win-  the-war government, that will show that Canada is in the war  to stay to the finish. Our politicians should have sized up the  gravity of the situation t'o know tha party politics should and  must be eliminated for* the present. What is Laurier, or wha:  is Borden to winning the war?  ' The sentiment of the Abbotsford convention was for Sir Wilfrid Laurier if he would endorse conscription, with emphasis on  the endorsation. We are also told that the Revelstoke convention was a duplicate of the Abbotsford convention. These two  should be taken as a criterion of the other constituencies of the  province'. Apparently Sir Wilfrid is not for conscription, and  neither are the people of Quebec.  The conscription act is in force now, being signed yesterday,  and we are waiting for those uprisings of Mr. Brewster's. Is he  figuring on another leadership?  Blake's Hawaiian Trobadours will  present their musical novelty at the  Victor Theatre, Wed and Thurs. 5th  and 6th Sept. The Hawaiians are  passionately fond of music and thoir  poetry is highly figurative, abounding  in lists of na'hies and in allusions to  their mythology, to places, to local  winds and rains, to seas, ocean and  flowers. These are the artists who  made such a success in the "Bird of  Paradise" company and without a  doubt Mission and district will turn  out and welcome these talented musicians. Prices are lower than any  other place yet booked, so they look  for crowded houses, which the management asujres us will welcome us.  A special feature of the visit will be  the dance over in the Imperial Hall  after the concert programme on  Thursday evening, when the whole  party will form a.dance orchestra and  play  their native instruments.  The government are raking the  stones off the road in Mission City,  on the line of the auto traffic.  Mr. W. Watt was in town a few  Saturday evenings ago, and the traffic on Washington street was a big  surprise to him. It was the first Saturday evening he has spent in town  for many moons, and he thinks that  by this time next year it will be unsafe to cross the street unprotected.  The question of feed for poultry is  'becoming serious. Corn is practically oil the market, oafs high in  prico, barley 'and ��������� buckwheat Very  Kcarco as well as high. Wheat, tho  most popular poultry feed in Canada-  at any price, should not. under present conditions, be used for poultry if  "isPfin'or"milling purposes, for the  prospects are that this year's" crop  'will leave the world's supply of  wheat still short arid it will be necessary to save all suitable-wheal for  human consumption. Poultrymen  will therefore have to look for a substitute.  Tho Wheat Prices'  The government has prohibited tho  export of the remainder of the 3 916  wheat crop to the United States, and  has fixed a.minimum price on the basis of',i?2.'10 for No. 1 Northern at.  Fort William. This maximum price  is now being obtained.  At the Vancouver exhibition ��������� last  week Mr. C. T. Mynors was successful in carrying off a. largo number of  prizes (all we understand) with his  game fowl. Besides his business C.  T. has'three specialties, dogs, horses  and chickens.

WEEK IN THE' PRAIRIE CITIES  Over 600 Canadians, members of the International Typographical Union, are in the trenches. Nearly 50 of these have  given up their lives in this titanic struggle. Over $50,000 was  subscribed by the union for Liberty bonds to carry on the war,  besides amounts taken by local unions. This is one of the  greatest and most conservative unions in the world. And yet we  hear some saying that labor is against carrying the war to the  bitter end.    Just some classes of labor.   .  In one of his boohs Tolsti predicted that about this time a  man would be produced who'would be the Napoleon of Russia:  to lead the people out of their trouble and place Russia among  the leading nations of the world. It is now beginning to look  as though these predictions are coming true and that Alexander  F. Kerensky js the man.  To assist municipalities to avoid the expense and annoying  mistakes made by so many municipalities during process of road  making the Ontario department of public works has prepared  a special report."  This report deals with the treatment of gravel and macadam roadways, the laying out of roads and the two important  items of drainage and foundation, besides several other matters which, judging from the average country roads, very few  road masters appear to know.'anything about.  This is a splendid idea and one which might be followed by  our western provinces.  In the Fraser Valley the question of good roads Is a most  important one and it would be well if our government would  undertake some plan whereby those responsible for the making of roads could be taught how to build them properly.  To our mind one of the best ways would be to have the  government adopt some standard method of road building and  have stretches of demonstration roads scattered throughout the  Valley. These stretches, could be laid out, supervised and built  by experienced road makers on scientific plans. They could be  visited and examined by the different municipal or government  road masters who would then learn how to make roads in their  own districts.  We have demonstration farms to teach the farmers how to  farm scientifically.    Then since there is. so much money, municipal and government, spent annually in supposed road making  During this week the, Market Commissioner has visited the following  cities: Medicine Hat, Moose Jaw, Re-  gina and Weyburn. The general report was that there was a brisk demand for B. C. produce. Potatoes  were reported scarce with the first  car lots arriving from Edmonton and  the north. The e were sold in Re-  gina at $45 a ton, F. O. B. Edmonton  Owing to the harvest being general  there will not be much potato digging for some weeks but a plentiful  crop is reported from Edmonton district.  Around Weyburn and in many other prairie points potato crops look  healthy but the first few potatoes  to form re-sprouted and the crop is  very much off on account of,this. Similar conditions are reported in some  cases in Calgary city. If a few cars  of B. C. potatoes could be rolled during the next four weeks the price  would be fairly good.  The potato situation has not developed enough to warrant a clear forecast of supply and demand but sellers  are beginning to hedge, and "the prices are firm. The acreage is greatly  increased but the general crop is  .below average. Washington N-. E.  tears a slump but reports from other  points are favorable to securing a  fair price.  On the Witness Stand.  A little flaw in his statements ruins the evidence of the witness. It may be a slight exaggeration, but the opposing lawyer seizes it and uses  it to impress upon the jury that this witness is  hot reliable.  The Advertiser to-day is on the witness stand.  If he makes mis-statements he is judged accordingly and his entire advertising is mistrusted.  Wide-rawake business men realize this. They  tell the truth in their advertisements; not because  they are better than they used to be; but because  they have learned that it pays.  The advertising columns to-day contain real,  dependable information that will save money for  * you if you follow them intelligently.  awKfawHwa  mmm  \mmvaummimaimm  nTnJIl  3EICLJE   SYNDICATE  l^^yO������f^'ii>ft*'>*������y*^yp^ifi'i''i������^".7������������-"^^  (if    i  ABBOTSFORD   DISTRICT BOARD OF  TRADE  r\  SSEE  2EB32  President, Hope Alanson   Secretary, N.

It  was  saiV   that  the  German   bdioolniaslev  really' made the war against, France  in   1.'870.    That the same commanding influence is forming the vision of  the young German mind today will be  readily believed  in the light of the>  following remarkable letter, written  by a Prussian school  miss, of good  standing, to a French teacher friend  in Switzerland:  Frank Cort-on-Odor, 20th'July, 1910  My Miss Louise���������The contents of  your letter would have hurl me had  I  not known that your thoughts of  our glorious war resulted from sheer  ignorance.  You aro in a,country rendered effeminate by the influence of old-  fashioned ideas of liberty, a country  is at least two centuries behind ours.  You are in need of a good dose of  Prussian culture.  It is evident that, you, a Swiss girl,  with your French sympathies, cannot  understand how my heart, the heart  of a young Gorman.g-iH, paa������iona!.ely  desired this war. Speaking of if some  years ago,. my father said to us,  "Children, Germany is gelling too  small for us; we shall have lo go to  France again in order to Und more  room." Is if our fault if France  will nol understand that more money  and   land are necessary  for us'?  And you reproach us that our soldiers have been very cruel to the  Belgian rabble, and you speak also  of the destruction of Rheims, and of  the burning or villagese' and towns.  Well, that is war.    As in every other  FRIDAY; JUNE 22, 191?  .j-ssHMua-saao- yostc-duy, again, our pastor explained to us convincingly that our  first .parents, Adam and Eve, were also Prussian. That is quite easy to  understand, because the Bible tells us  LUaf the German God. created us all  after his own image. J I', then, all  men are descended "from Adam and  his wife, it follows that only Prussians, or at least Germans, ought to  exist in the world, and that all who  push on and prosper ought to belong to us. Yo'u must admit that that  ia why our motto-is, "God with us,  Germany above everything.'"  You now know why we wished this  war. is it not shameful that other  nations, who have no right to existence on the earth, wish to diminish  our heritage- We are tho divine fruit  and others arc only the weeds. Do  you understand lhat/'now? 1 remain  your schol friend, KATTE HAMEL,  Daughter ol Stale Concillorol. Architecture.  m  ���������undertaking,  we are pastmastcrs  the making of war. 'j  You have a great deal to learn before you can come up to our standard, and I can assre you that what  has been done so far is a mere bagatelle compared with what will follow.  As a matter of fact, there Is but  one race worthy of ruling the world,  and which lias already attained the  highest degree of civilization. That  race is ours, the Prussian; for though  we Germans in general are the lords  of the world,, the Prussian is undoubtedly the lord per excellence a-  mong the Germans.  All other nations, and among them  unfortunately the Swiss, are degenerate and of inferior worth. That is  why I have always been so proud of  being a true Prussian.
