Murray, inspector of pos-  t al service, in Vancouver, wrote the  council complaining of the condition  of the roads in Matsqui traversed by  the carrier on No. 1 .route out of  Huntingdon. Mr. Murray will be informed that at this time of the year  it is almost impossible for the council  to maintam all roads in good repair,  especially following the recent hard  frosta. The hauling of gravel to fill  in the bad spots in the road complained1 of, would damage.,, the existing road far more than if it were left  alone.  Mr. R. Baird, inspector of municipalities, Victoria, wrote the council  informing them that before any money bylaws are ratified by tjie electorate and council, they should be submitted to Victoria for approval and  also to locate possible errors in same  which may mean trouble in the future. Matsqui having no bonded indebtedness, and also having no intention of assuming such burden, is not  interested in this connection.

The Vancouver Sun, says the the  Kamloops "Standard-Sentinel,, at the.  last provincial election did more, u*-  its contiuous attacks upon Mr. Mc-  Brida and Mr. Bowser and their administrations, to defeat the Bowser  regime, than all other factors combined.

Unfair, uncompromising, and with victory won  and Brewster* as premier, no paper  was ever more disgustingly haughty  and purse-proud in its gloatings and  crowing.

If the back yard is fenced  in, the easiest way is to plant all  terry bushes in a row along the fence  and the fruit trees far enough away  from the.fence, to leave ample space  LIFT OFF CORNS!
