McPhee of the Pioneer store of Abbotsford and Mr.  Mr. W. H. Kerr formerly of the  Royal Bank of Canada, have joined  business interests and henceforth  the firm will be known as McPhee  & Kerr. Both gentlemen arc well  known throughout the.district and  as general merchants they should  have a bright future before them  in  this   growing  town   of   ours.  Improvements in the way of larg  er and more commodious building,  larger stock, etc. are contemplated. Every effort will be made by  the new firm, to meet the wishes of  their many customers in? Abbotsford and vicinity.  Mr. and Mrs. Fboks .were in town  from Upper Sumas to attend' the  bazaar, and Mr. Pooks went laway  loaded with his numerous .purchases. . .:  ���������  PROVINCIAL POLICE  ,      .' -MAKE'TWO   AKKESTS  Two   arcests jverc   made      this  week���������one on Wednesday and the  ���������ther on Thursday morn'ng, which  go to show that the provincial police officers   at ^Mission   City  and  Abbotsf$n-d  are ]not "asleep,      but  very much active': in tlie carrying-  out  the  duties which their capacity  as  officers of the governmeri  call for.   This  part of the Prase!:  Valley is  gradually'becoming  thr  toiror of 'those whose self-imp- serf  .ucy to evade trie law.  On Friday last "a   man, who af '  'ter wards  gave  his.wname  as" John  Doc,  walked, into  Conrad  And Arson's   restaurant,   bought   a, me*ls  ��������� and paid for it, passing off "phoney" money.   A. description of the  man was sent to Mission City, New  W.-stminster and other points. But  nothing further .developed until on-  Wednesday afternoon  W. H. Loat  of   the   Silverdale   Lumber (   ,Co.���������  'phoned the' bank at Mission asking information ,as to the value of  a   certain bill which he had in his  possession.   When told it was valueless,   he   immediately . ' notified  Constable,Gammon at Mission City  On finding-out Tthe direction     tne  man iwas - taking; word vwas^nt'.to  Municipal Constable Pope^of Haney. to make the arrest there,    if  possible.     Pope-.met the man east  of Haney and 'making\,the' iairrest  brought hinrto'Mission City. on.the'  ���������Agassiz'localj/arrivin'g'.in.le'ssrthan.  four -hours rafterv information, was  sent out for arrest.     , '  ��������� On Thursday afternoon v John  Doe ��������� appeared before Magistrate  Verchere at Mission City on three  chrg.es���������that of .passing a Confederate bill on Conrad Andersen  at Abbotsford on Friday, November 25th-. repeating the operation  on W. H. Loat at Silverdale and  having another $10 bill, of the same  kind on his'person, when arrested  at Haney. The pr'soner "reserved  his   plea."  K. V. Munro, manager of the  Canadian Bank of Commerce at  Mission City gave expert evidence,  as to the bank value of the bills,  stating that they were perfectly  worthless.  Conrad Andersen stated thai on  the afternoon of the-25th the prisoner walked into his restaurant  and ordered a meal. When. "It-  camiefto paying for it, he said die  had not enough change and hand  ed the bill to Andersen. It did not  look good to him, but Doe, who  gave his name as 'Regan stated  that if it was found that the money was not good he would make it  good at any time. He was registered at the -AbbotBford Hotel and  was the next morning going to  work with the Lumber Company  After the man was gone Anderson  consulted with several of the citizens, among them being Manager  Kerr of the Royal Bank. Ho then  went to consult the Abootsfoid,  Hotel register. Not finding- tho  name of Regan there he went, to  Constable Black and explained  how he had come in possession of  ihe money. '  ,    ���������'   '       ',  Mi. and Mrs. Loat  gave ovidenc:\  , Tlie prisoner had put up a   pretty  I good  story  about the   difficulties  he  had   hi  securing  a    place      to,  board, and eventually purchased a  shirt   at   the   fit ore   giving   a   ten  dollar bill in payment and receiv-  "ng(thc change back in good .money.' The  prisoner   found no   fault  .with the ���������evidence.  The  third   charge came  up  and  ^Constable   Pope   testified  that  he  had found the ten dollar ibill produced in court, on Doe immediate-  y after his arrest.  In summing up .the evidence Ma--  gistrate Verchere  decided that it  would be best to send, Doe alias Re  gan up for,trial on the three separate   charges.   On   Thursday  ev-,  ening Constable Gammon jtook- the  prisoner , to   Ne.w      Westminster,,.-  where he will come up for trial at  the next assizes.  The arrest onThursday at Clayburn was a very simple matter  for Constable Black.' It .appears  that F. E. Mullins' believed ' he  was some-cheque artist andiinclud-.  -u the name of the florst Hap 0--  ona     cheque which he was not eh-  .itled   to   do./ For   two   weeks  or  'thereabouts he'has-been sojourn-  ng  comfortably   at Sardis,. while,  Cb"nsta'blie"'Scott''";wa8> looking '.'"' for  lim. ' He1 decided   that \ , a I'WalJv'  would' do, him good, especially on  an   important 'duty-in, which-,   "a  book   and   a, young-  lady J."  were  concerned.,*'He taiadef the\trip'to  Abbotsford  on  foot ^arriving \  in  town on Thursday morning.      ~On  receiving his satchel The" took   'the  electric  car   for "Clayburn,' where  he deicided to get off.   While   on  the-^platform Constable Black and  Mr. Andersen drove along on their  way to Mission on. the "Doe" casee  It appears that Mullins had no  sooner 'taken the. tuain at Abbots  ford than- Constable Black was told  who "was-in tow,n.'\ He got busy  and found the mjan had gotten ofl'f  ar Clayjburn. When aiu*i(Vii>g, at  Ciayburn Constable Black found  hid'friend waiting for him'. He ask  ed 1. l-i if his .'name was Mullins.  The answer, came, promptly that  it was Harrigan. The arrest was  made) and;'the,'prisoner taken to  Mission City tol isten to the "Doe"  case., Afterwards he was brought  back to 'Abbotsford; ��������� Constable  Scott arrived, from Chilliwack and  took the���������"prisoner back to Ch'illi-  to stand hi.'* trial.

SHORT COURSE IN  FRUIT .GROWING  A short  course in fruit growing-  is lo be held in Abbotsford on D:c  7th and at Aldergrove on December 6th.   To the man who purposes  planting an orchard or to' the  grower  who   has  already   an   orchard this course should prove of  .mmense value.   The  subjec's will  be taken  up along practical lines  with demonstrations wherever pos  sible, and isplanned to meet the re  quircments of the fruit growerand  Lhe   intending-  planter   would ,do  well to attend and be ready with  any questions which they wish to  have  discussed,  in order that-the  subjects cover   all  Lhe difficulties  that arc   mot with  by  the      fruit  grower in   his  practical  work.'  At the morning session a   selection    of.   nursery    stock,  orchard  plans and planting will be discuss  o i.  -The'.propcr selection of nursery   stock   is an   important  factor  in the planting of an orchard, and  on  the   quality  and   treatment of  lhe nursery stock dopends largely  the ultimate success of the orchard  The methods of pruning'and plant  it;g often cauBes.doss and set ba-Jv  i ������ the".trees owing' to the. mclhods  u. -d "and' tlie' proper; sysfc^ ��������� V' of"  pruning and planting .will receive  its  due  consideraton        ' .,  .In, a   season suchjas the last sum  mer the ' question' of conservation  of moisture was an_ important-one  from the point- of the -fruit' grower  At-the afternoon session-methods-  of  increasing  the    water  holding  capacity of  the soil, and the conservation of the moisture-through  the  growing' season will  be  fully-  taken up.   The proper implements  used  in   orchard  practice  will ,be  discussed. The place of cover  crops on  the fruit farm with  the,  btbt kinds   to use, depending  on  the type of the -soil and its conditions, will be fully taken up.  Until such Limes as we can prove  Lo our own satisfaction that we  'can control the pesuS in o.i' orchard it will be a useless handicap to the planting out of young-  orchards. If by, the proper handling of the old orchard we canrcn-  novate and bring i.t into a condition in which it will bring apro-  liL it will be a boon to the, fruit  growing industry of the province;  The question of control of orchard  pests is one Of the most important  factors in the cleaning of the or-  chaid. This question which will  be di&cubseci at the afternoon session bnould prove of great interest  to the fruit growers of Aldergrove  and Abbotslord  district.  At the evening meeting, pruning  of the orchard both summer ano  winter will be under consideration'  The proper pruning and thinning  out of Luc trees has an important  beat ing'on the cleanliness of the  oi'/.haru and the control of orchard  pests. Sprays and spraying will  also be fully taken up at the same  meeting. The use of improperly  mixed sprays, spraying at the  wrong time for the control of pests  h3 8 caused many fruitgrowers to  lose faith in spraying. The proper  sprays to use, the time of spray.ng  and the best outfits to buy will be  discussed fully at that meeting.  A il those interested in iiait gi'ow  ing, are invited to these meetings  Tne courses are free under the aiid-  -r-i.'? of the Horticultural Branch  of the Department of Agriculture  Victoria, and are such that no  fruit grower or intending planter  can afford to miss them.
