Of  course  there   are   thok-2  t     . -.  vho. -will  ask   ifj! all'    earnestness  what- good is a '.Board  of ' Trade,  and''especially in, a'  small commun  ity-like.this where fhe" government  attends to all the'/wants of the town  and- the municipalities have      the  council to look-?after them.        Of  course too much looking after, like  too many cooks spoil the broth, but  on the other hand1 .when     several  bodies, be it Board' of Trade     or  municipal council ask- the govern-  mentror any corporation, 'for what  is required *   we all' believe that the  .more pressure brought to 'bear the  better,.the chances'of securing, the  desired'.object.     ''. .  -*"    - -'"   ...  There, is work for our  Board of  Trade to. do during, .the    : coming  year.   It should endeavor   to   see'  that the town'and surrounding .district be' brought before the attention of many people in the old land  who are ,thinking ;jOircpming to this  province  to  re������\ae, ...There  is   no  literature that- the secretary . ;can  send to inquirers wheivhe^is written to asking about, the . ��������� district. -  Only this week'he was'heard tore-'  mark that he had several communi  cations, asking about the openings  for business enterprises or information about the district, and "what  the land ,was  adapted   for,   etc.  Now it is unreasonable for any one  to ask that he sit down and write a  lengthy letter to Jthree, or four or  more people during a  month   jor  two, relling them about the district  He wouLd have to be a mighty  strong booster and deeply interest  ed in the development of', the district to undertake such a task ^ and  then again, what he -might write to  such an inquiry, might not suit every person, who is a - member of the  Board should copies of his letters  be. read at the^ next; .meeting.. He  should have approved literature to  send out to lnquirers,*~without having to wait to write a letter. ^ All  or many of the inquirers) write, tor  several different parts/at the'same  time and the most tempting is the  one that secures the visit of the  nian who is lookinng for a home in  the  Fraser  Valley.  Has the Board yet brought to the  attention of the member for the  district the requirements of : the  town and the districts represented?  Has the Board asked for the spend  ing of any money .during the coming year. There -will not be a better opportunity to secure needed  improvements for the town' and  district, than during the next six  months. This is almost an assured  fact. The member will not again  be more anxious than he is this  year, to please each voter. Now is  Lhe time and now i9 the opportunity.      Ask those in the know.  The railway commissioners will  meet in Vancouver at an early date  Isjfehere anything in Abbotsford requiring adjustment that can, be  brought before this augus'c body?  What about trie opening of that  street  across   both  railways?  The past record ol the Board has  shown that it is able to accomplish  something^something for the advancement of the community. 1 hen-  why not make it a live Board of  Trade,  i.  The Board is askedi to mcec the  first of each month. The i.ecretary  informs this paper1 that lie would  like to have a real" goo.d meeting  next time. Every person who is a  member of ine Board mid who is  also a reader of this* pasr, is hereby notified that the next meeting  the Board'will be held n tho.'oard  rooms-on Monday, February 5tL.,  Don't forget the date.  ,  --���������o   THE TOWN BOOSTED  It was a privilege of a repies-  entattive of this paper to Listen to  a conversation bettween a r������si-,  dent of this town; arid a stranger  the' other day, and, while no notes  were taken the conversation, ran  something like the following, and  shows that all the boosters for Abbotsford are not yet become faint  hearted;   ���������  Resident���������Good  morning,   stranger.  Stranger���������Good morning  (Seeming surprised that he  should    be  spoken and apparently welcoming  the opportunity to talk)   This is a  ame*. morning.

We take  it as a matter of fact that Abbotsford is entitled to days just such  as this one, but it is a. beauty,  nevertheless.

It is'(hoped that  a dozen or two houseB will be built  this season. -Houses .to .rent, have  always been scarce in Abbotsford.  Houses built with the,' idea of selling them to newcomers on the instalment plan' or  outright   nhould  prove   a   good   investment.  _i *   TELL IT TO THE EDITOR^- "  The- average citizen does not at.  all dream how often this or any.oth  er paper is pressed for newfc items  Resident���������The surrounding coun-  ;rv. -rnisa is -a- central locaftbn  We hav"e excellent communication  with the outside world.

I believe they  are pretty near right. Just look at  that envelope;' it represents a map  of Abbotsford and part of the  district.  Stranger���������It looks as though Abbotsford was the Hub of the Uni-  verse6  'Resident���������Well it does you know  The Board of Trade is responsible  for that envelope. It is all right  too.

But, within  i short radius of the. town there is  room for many more. Were you  looking for fr,uit lands or manufacturing sites? We have a lot of  good land to the south,; the west  and east on Sumas Prairie���������land  that will suit any taste or whim in  the line of farming.

Nevertheless., many persons are surprised at an artist who is not small,  anaemic, delicate of feature, and decorated with a flowing necktie.. Such  a' person lately visited the studio of a  certain artist-in one of our big cities:  The man ln question wears a big  red' beard, and stands six feet and.  some inches high. His shoulders are  broad, and his muscles, hard from  continued exercise. A woman entered his studio' and asked for the  artist. '  ' "That's him, standing over there,"  the "attendant said.  ,The woman looked over to where  the artist stood, towering like an  ancient viking, and gasped.

He looks as prosperous as he feels.  ���������It isn't the size of a place that counts most, nor its actual doilars-and-cents  value.    It's rather that "well-kept," thrifty appearance; the appearance that makes  you think of fat stock, and well-filled barns, and comfortable, contented living.  Neat; permanent improvements go further in giving a farm this appearance than  any other feature.  Concrete Is The Ideal Material  for such improvements. It is neat, harmonizing with its surroundings in the' country.  Everlasting, it cannot be injured by fire, frost, wind or lightning. Age���������instead of  causing it to  decay���������actually makes it stronger.  Concrete never needs repair���������first cost is last cost. New improvements can be added  year after year with less expense than would be required to keep wooden structures  in repair. '  Concrete walka, feeding floors, dairy-barns, ice-houses, root-cellars, well-curbing  fence posts, silos���������which of these does your farm need most? Whatever you want to  build, it's best to build it of concrete. ������������������  Do you want to know more about this subject of permanent farm improvements?
