Will Beharrell is installing a lighting system. It is too bad the municipality wouldn't wake up and gat  juice for this district. It seems .very  strange with loaded wires running  through the municipality that they  cannot be tapped and utilized. !t  looks ast if we1 preferred darkness  rather than light, not because our  deeds are evil but because thero is  not enough life in the district for action.  Some ranchers have even gone to  the expense of wiring their buildings  in the hope that some day they might  be called up to service. Get busy  councillors and let us have some  light for  1919.  It would not hurt Matsqui to have  a real live council for 1919. With a  dead council and an ancient clerk it  'will always be hard to get modern  conveniences. Let us see to it that  the council we elect this year will be  open to receive into their make-up a  little necessity for more light, besides  electric light. The clerk should also  be a returned soldier and living in a  more central part of the municipality.  Gravel has been laid, carefully, on  the Machell road. Looks like some  doings!  A loaded Avagon was stalled this  week coming up the ferry landing.  The white frost on the road makes it  pretty tough going for the poor animals. Something ought to be done  to obliterate this trouble.  HELD MEETING  LAST THURSDAY  (Prom the Fraser Valley Record)  A meeting of the directors of  the Mission Agricultural Association was held last Thursday  evening. A satisfactory report  of the Fall Fair was given and  arrangements were made to  bring- certain matters that  would benefit the Association  before the annual meeting. The  elate of the meeting was set for  Wednesday, January 15th, 1919  The directors felt that greater  interest should be taken by the  public in the work of the Association.  Will all interested who are  not now members become members by the time of the annual  meeting and will all members  try to be present at the annual  meeting. It is very important  that all members be. present at  the annual meeting so that  there may be a full discussion  of the business of the Association. Let everyone give encouragement and help so that the  Fair of 1919 may be the best  yet.  Westminster is arranging for  a fair in 1919, would it not be  worth while to arrange for a  district exhibit worthy of this  community?

Heide, secretary of the International  Live Stock Show. "Farmers throughout the country have been working  to raise grains. They have neglected their cattle. Now they pay the.  penalty.  "Europe is asking for meat; and  will continue to do so for a considerable time. South American cattle  raisers have lost stock through foot  and mouth diseases and drought. A  big demand for beef products is approaching���������how '.will it.be satisfied?  "The only remedy is for farmers  at once to turn their energies to raising more cattle. There is ample  grain to feed them and transportation facilities will probablyl be ade  quate for all immediate needs."  There is nothing doing yet in tlie  municipal elections in Mission City  and Mission Municipality. The date  of nomination is January 13th and  the election the Saturday following.  After the New Year things will begin to get lively. The present council are all likely to be in the running  again, and in Ward IV. B.-C. Cream  who lias been in "Vancouver, has returned and will run unless the weather gets cold. There are said to be  a number of other aspirants for councillor. Ex-Reeve Cade may take another try for tlie reeveship.  Three members of lite school board  are out and three new ones are to be  elected.  Over in Matsqui the. people are getting tired waiting for the light and  power to come in and the new reeve  and councillors will have to make a  promise or two in regard to this unless some of the ratepayers change  their mind.  . In    Sumas    Municipality      Reeve  Fooks will probably, be opposed    by  T. B. Straiton for the reveship.  You ought to visit the new store  in Abbotsford. Mr. Whitchelo has a  fine stock.

KKKP  VOUJ1 GOOD  EYE  UPE\, GIRLS  The other day tho daily papers had  in large headlines that 20,000 girls  were coming from tho old country,  some as wives of soldiers, some single  and some widows. As the troop train  passed through Mission City the other day one of the men said this was  quite wrong that it was 00,000, and  besides the wives of Canadian soldiers there were 29,000 widows and  young girls, all looking for good jobs  or happy homes. Their sisters had  made a great "hit" in marrying soldiers, and they had been told th&t  there were "just as good fish in the,  sea as ever were caught." Some of  these girls were trained in such jobs  as school teachers, telephone girls,  bank girls, stenographers, and store  clerks. Of course the Post, don't be  lisvo this but a word in time might  bo belter than procrastination. The  English girls who passed through  Mission today were pretty, and all  smiling.

A.BATES; Editor and Proprietor  FRIDAY, DECEMBER 20, 1918  We wish our readers a Merry Christinas.  I.11 wishing'" each other a Merry Christmas  this year we can tlo so with reeling that a great  load'of grief has ,been partly lifted by the  close oMhe great war and that our boys are  coming home during the coming year, thus  0 ending' ihc -sulTerings of those who have been-  :   ligniing for freedom and for country.  "'Hm only regret in bidding each other to  jniuio merry is the great sorrow that some of  those who left our Canadian soil bright and  cheerv .are resting quietly on the battlefield,  ' but this is partly atoned for by the knowledge  that ���������fhey fought Ihc good fight bravely and  that it is through their efforts that we can  say to the living;- Rejoice! For it is Christinas  time.    The danger is past.  It took a great war and the return of the  soldiers to call attention to the fact that tho  church has been wanting in its duties, according to the sermon preached by Rev. Cooke-in-  \ anoouver on Sunday last.    There is certainly '  food  for thought in- the words expressed 'by-*  the Vancouver divine.   -It, may not appeal'to-'  a great many people, but what is now -being-  said, could be said for many years before-the-  ���������war.    Like all great organizations the .church-  should not get behind in its methods.    Many-  changes have taken place during .the past cen^  uirv 'but' the  church  remains  tlie  same  ap  parently.  few more such sermons would  do a lot of good.  But then' there are a great many things to-  be lighted and where" to; begin is. the import-;  ant question.    Some would begin    with' 4. the;  church; and some "would begin with the parliaments "of the country.    'How would;it.do,rto'  tackle both at once.    Fire all the members of  arliaraent and  elect new ones;   give all  the  ministers the walking ticket and induct new  preachers.    Then the great question would be  would we be any better off.    Can we get ideal  men?  -And what'is the right ideal?  While talking about ideals, .here is one for  you.to consider.    At London Laurier is reported as saying that the Germans were "one of  the noblest races in the world"    Then Attorney-General Farris is reported as saying 'in  Vancouver the other day,- 'it was just one year  to the clay since he had appeared before the  electors of Ward six.    He had on that occasion'.supported the Liberal candidate in the federal campaign.    Although he had   been,  told  then that he was not espousing the right cause  yet he had the courage of his convictions, and  ho believed that time had shown him to have-  been right' The federal candidate was a Laurie]- man, and," do you agree with Farris'- ideal  now?  Then Findlay's ideal was to get a good job  looking after the- fellow who wanted booze,  but after being on the job for a while he did  seemingly change his ideal and had spread  broadcast for' the public good or bad that  which he had been appointed, to guard, ,and  like a good fellow he paid his fine and has so  far remained mum. This goes to show .-that-a  good man is likely to change his ideal.  On the other hand when John Oliver hiked  up and down the Dewdney roads previous to  last election he said 'too much money had  been spent on the roads of Dewdney'. And  since he has been in office he has not. chnaged  his first impressions. Now we have in Dewdney Premier Oliver's ideal trunk'road. How do  you who travel in a*car like his ideal?  Then the President of the People's Prohibition Party in 13. C. was not so much for punishing the"fellow with the bottle, but he 'wanted the higher up.' The other day the higher  up was gotten, and Nelson said to John Oliver,  'there he is you get him good and plenty for  the Prohibition Party.' Now Iioav does -the ,1-  deal contained'therein suit?  Cherished ideals of happiness may be all  shot to pieces, and procrastination the thief of  time. For instance, we have the young soldier sailing away, leaving a blushing maiden  behind hoping for the day of his return. He  with others return 30,000 stronger, among  those being some 4,000 widows. The ideal of  figure happiness fades away.  Thus we might outline ideals, but none of  A.hr.m would seom to point to the road-of the  path of duty.  But if there is one road that opens out  straight and clear to the people in every one  of the Allied countries   it    is    the   highway  thrown up;broadened and made solid by sacri- .  fice'Of-'.the same-ki net as 'thai" "one supreme  sacrifice which" was offered .up long ago -to.  impart safety to all who choose Right instead  of Might as their guiding, principle, into the  building of this highway, has gone the most  precious material of earth; towards its making has gone the iinest .brainpower, the noblest, aspirations of which mankind is capable.  But neither brains alone nor a full realization  of the tremendous need of'the times, not the  ordinary brand of generosity and good will  have won this war. With ail or theue con trib-  u'ted in good measure, heaping and running-  over' the war would still have gone to Germany had it not been for the element of self-  sacrifice. This'linally gave life and vigour  and honourable victory to the efforts of the  Allies.  There came a dreadful day   last   summer  when the British army was told by Gen. Haig  that England stood with her back to the wall.  Up to that time had any true Britisher known  the real meaning of sacrifice?    Had he not ���������  secretly, held back some dear, dear thing with ,  which he personally could not part? Not until that time did'he realize that in England's '  hour of need her salvation depended on the  individual personal effort of each individual ''  soldier standing with,the back to the wall, his ,  face to the foe.and all that he- had, or ever,  hoped to.have given over completely.in sacrifice .for England, for honour,   for   humanity..  That act .of-supreme devotion put the lighting  touch-to this.-newroad -along which the Allies  must travel-an-the future.    That is, they must  travel;-they will travel, this highway if they  arei.worthy.of:������the sacrifice which   has   been  made-for them.,... Not- yot have the great mass  at home'even-grasped the meaning of the word  sacrince;---no.t.yet- have they realized the her-"  itage which, has'.come to them.    Not yet .do  they.realize that-from this day1 forth they .'belong to the world, to humanity,"to each other..  !"��������� Frequently during the -last, year   we   have  heard'?th'ose,.qualified to speak telling .of. the'  wonderful effects which war has wrought on  the men'.who., have helped .to .bring, about tliis---  peace which in grandeur and.awesomeness is  "deyohd ���������the'pow.er or man:to'"conceive.    Invariably those- same speakers have added, with all  the earnestness of which they were capable,  .the appeal:  "Be worthy of them!      You who  are at home strive to make yourselves worthy  of these men!"  Has any one made any conscious effort to  do this? When the knitting of socks and the  making of Red Cross supplies shall cease .can  any community���������even our own���������point to any  great advance in thinking and living? 'Has  the old 1913-structure been torn down or so remodelled as to be unrecognizable? Have people become broader and better in other lines  than those emergency ones growing out of the  war? What is the permanent output in higher living for the four years of war? Are we  ready, are- we worthy to journey on this great  highway built by magnificent storming of the  heights?  The answer to these vital questions is simple. Whatever steps we have taken looking  to the future journey on this great new highway mark us" as either worthy or unworthy of  the supreme sacrifice that has been made up to  date and the further sacrifice that is still due  from every one. Not for one moment can any  one be excused for.thinking that the signing  of the armstice in France by Germany means  an end to German endeavors and German attitude towards others. The German spirit is  by no means annihilated. It is only silent and  sulking1 because overcome by superior force.  German "agents, scattered throughout the  world have not signed the armstice. One of  the most.dangerous bits of work devolving on  the troops after an evacuation was known as  - "mopping up." Into every nook and cranny  the men were expected to go searhcing for the  Hun who was, too often, concealed for the  purpose of taking a Hun's advantage and ambushing our brave men. Many a man sealed  his sacrifice then and there.  ���������' Which are we most concerned 'with today,  the resumption of pre-war conditions of thinking and living and drifting���������let us be honest���������  or with fitting ourselves for the highest thinking, the most honest living that the world has'  ever known?  The question of "my" wrongs and "your"  usurped rights was the burning one upon  which women expended energy today; planning and working to do away with thai hateful "mine and thine" attitude and are they  marching in good order on that road which  was made for every one, the road which every''  one must help to keep in order, the road on  which all jTiust trvael who believe that this  was a war to defend Right. The new woman  of the last four years did wonders because she  worked for the common good. Is she planning  the same thing for the years after the armies  the  -are-disbanded and new eras open f    Has  signing of the armstice found our noble women  unprepared?    Has tha new woman appeared?  sssiaaitaaauassiiiBaaxtiastssissx  :g*cm������ocBEJi'maafTOBM5gflMMiMu.iiMi Murrtnr.^r  1  AfiV^\  Says   Don i Answe]  R is easier for the operator  to complete a telephone call  than ,to report "They do hot  answer.

We have made remark's Irani  time lo lime, through iheso report  in regard to (he false use of the word  '"Ashcrol't" on potato sacks.. It is a  fact that here in the city many dealers do not care one-half as much a-  bouf the qualify of the contents of a  sack of potatoes as they do about the  name on the sack. Our attention has  been recently brought to the fact  that one shipper is shipping "Genuine  Lillooet"   potatoes   from   Savona,   B.  U. In our opinion (his is not fair to  ihfi growers iii tiio Upper Lillooet  district. W'liilo potatoes in I his particular instance are good, the fact  .hal il. is more or 13ok misrepresentation canno.f be disputed.  I'rosoiit indications point to a very  slight advance in potato prices. Alberta markets have advanced and U.  S. reports show the market to be  steady. Tlie heavy loss in shrinkage  tins season will force up flic wholesale pi ices on good stock'.  (Jrowers would do well to see that  every sack of potatoes sent in weighs  101 pounds when leaving tlie farm  'I here are many growers, who pay no  attention'to the weight shipping their  produce in sugar, sacks and bran  sacks. It. might be slated here that  many ot the new grain sacks hold  only 0 0 lbs.  Our attention is .often called to  short weights. This week we found  an instance of a farmer charging the  dealer up with a veal calf, shipping  weight ISu lbs. The actual weight  was lsH'lbs. The shipper forgot  to deduct a C ft. plank he laid across  the calcs to hold the veal on.    An-  turkoys and 7u lbs tare.
