These  ^ lists are"'publisiied'"ir������. (he'.paper  . with the object of encouraging  all,who may intend to exhibit  whether .member!?, of the local  '" association -or ;noc. This ' prac-  ��������� tice.has beeii" carried out for a  'mwnbei;;of,years so that ail who  ' mul tjie! paper may liave an i-  ', dea of what should be exhibited  to' advertise the district.     Now  what'is done'with the printed  .'list'or with, the paper, with the  ���������list printed in it? Was it just  1 locked' hurriedly over and cast  to'one'Side. With no, decision as  . to whether you 'would compete  for  a prize-'or "prizes  or  not.  Unless you decided to make an  exhibit you are making a big  niistakeViri' the'' interests of your  self and 'of ;your-neighbors and  the .district.    This    district    is  worth boosting and a good fall  fair is one of the best ways of  boosting.-  The prize lists, are  all good and worthy the support of all, residents of the district.  There  will in  11 probability  be a good attendance at the fair  and among these will be. many  visitors, some of whom may decide to locate in the district if  it can be shown to them that  the district can produce what in  their opinion is an ideal exhibit  for the district that they want  to settle in.  Having the name for a good  fall fair each year   soon   gets  spread around and    the    good  naine spreads    much    further  than  we  sometimes  think    it p ,,     . .        ,,  .  . .     from all points on the American con-  does.

This  much was admitted by attorney1  general  Fan-is while in Vancouver.  ' "It largely''-depends on the voters'  lists, but 1 think these could be got  ready by October 25," stated Hon.  Mr.  Farris.  The significance of the date li'as  in the fact that oh the same day prohibition referenda will be voted on in  Ontario, Saskatchewan and Alberta,  so that if B. C. also joins in, October  25 will be one great clay of voting  on the liquor question from the Great  Lakes to the Pacific Ocean.  It is asserted that there has been  some jockeying going'on by rival interests in regard to the date of the  vote in B. C._ In consequence of a  feeling that prohibition will carry in  some of tlie sister, provinces, the  "moderates" have been anxious to  have the referendum in B. C. taken  before the other provinces vote. Contrariwise, it is said, the bulk of the  prohibitionists are > anxious to have  the B. C. vote .deferred until after  the other provinces have voted.  Under the circumstances, the government, it is said, in its desire not  to play favorites in the matter, aud  so as to get an unbiassed opinion on  the question, is of a mind to take the  B. C- referendum"on'the"very"day 'that':  the other provinces vote.  Whether the voters' lists    can    be I  ready in time depends again on whether the court of revision in Vancouver  can   conclude  its   work   without  long  delays.  Little.  Mrs. Matthews  Dahlias���������1st,.  White;   2nd, -Bubsie Mil-  -Mrs.  Toronto Public Market  On our last visit to this point it  was November and we found jobbers doing business each on his own  stand similar to Winnipeg or Vancouver. We find the summer method  there different from our 'Western  way and very similar to the large  European centres especially _ Glasgow and London, except that no public auction is held in Toronto. All  the wholesalers rent space in .-the  market building which is large, cool  and conveniently situated, fruit and  produce come to it by rail and water  method of advertising the district. The agricultural exhibit-  , ion is the place where the farmer may display his choice products and set his own price for  them.  The prizes arc worth competing for and there should be a  good fair this year. If more  will exhibit this year it will be  better than ever.  The energetic secretary of  the fair has been busy for the  past number of weeks and just  to see his smile, one of those refreshing seniles that means a  better show, tell him that you  want an entry form and will fill  it out.  There are two kinds of criticisms,  honest and "otherwise." Honest  critcism is showing the one making  a mistake, or doing things in the  wrong way, his or her fault in su-.h  a way that no offense can be taken  and that all concerned may profit by  the criticism and avoid making the  same mistake twice. The one who  never makes a mistake gets no place,  but if you make a mistake, be game,  take the blame.    Don't pass it on.  Otherwise ��������� criticism is ��������� picking  flaws in other people in ord.ir to advance yourself, or to keep your own  fault's from being noticed.  Any person who cannot stand criticism, should have no place on this  dear old earth.  delivered from the team trucks adjacent to the building. This market opens annually about the first of  June and closes about 1st November  It is situated on the water front  and corner of Yongo street, and was  formerly the Grand Trunk Railway  station. We think this moans of  summer marketing where all the  wholesalers are in the same building  selling produce which can be readily examined by buyers and fresh  supplies in reserve in the cars near  by has many advantages over individual warehouse- plan, it is a  plan that would be found workable  and efficient in Winnipeg, Vancouver  or other western cities, the chief  difficulty in adopting this plan ���������is  the   expense   of   the   building.  credit to the district,' arid a surprise  to a great many of the visitors. Mr.  McCallum, reeve of Matsqui, made  tlie opening remarks.  . Special interest was-taken in the  collection of beautiful roses exhibited by Mr. .1. I-I. Dean of Aldergrove,  Rose-land  Nurseries.

With but very few exceptions  in the Fraser Valley,-or in B.

Finally, book lovers are far ?nore  likely than other people to have  keenness and breadth of vision. Unless their reading is all in one direction they can hardly suffer from  nearsightedness and narrowness of  mind.  Which is another business as well  as social advantage to them.  if. helps to make them sympathetic  and tactful. It saves thtsrn from  many a mistake due to bigotry and  intolerance. It prevents them from  needlessly making enemies, and assists them to win friends.  In a word, love of books promotes  spiritual "as well as intellectual  growth.  'Hence it may fairly be described  as a virtue which all should do their  best to cultivate. 1-Ionce, again, the  old philosopher's advice is as sound  today as when it first was uttered-  "He that lovofli a book will never  want a faithful friend, a, wholesome  counselor, a cheerful companion, an  effectual comforter.''

This albeit may not be deliberately  reading to improve their minds. All  uiicot.sciousiy the id'S-as they draw  from the printed page are stored up  to be worked over by imagination for  their future profit.  Cook lovers, too, if the books they  love are really good, benefit signally  by the increased knowledge they obtain of the correct meaning and the'  propci- use of words.  There are thousands of people  whose progress in the business world  is retarded by their'inability to speak  and to write correctly. Many cannot spell even simple words correctly, though they have been to school  With reason employers hesitate to  promote such people to positions that  involve much oral or written communication with others. When' the  inability to speak well or to write  well is conspicuous, promotion to  positions requiring social contacts is  virtually out of the question.  "I like Joe," the employer may reflect. "Ho is honest, faithful, a loyal, hard worker. But he murders  language so atrociously that lis  would be a laughing stock to our  customers if I sent him out on the  road. I guess he'll have to stick  where  he  is."
