In extending to our many readers our best wishes for a Happy
and Prosperous New Year, we are
sure \vc are not wishing Abbots-
ford anything but what is sure to
taUo place. The coming year we
ice. w.il be a glorious year for
..-ur town. -The past year has seen
many changes for the 'better and
juug.ng by Jio bright -prospects
.\"c sue everywhere around us the
com.ng year has much in store for
lis that is good. There are more
boosters in Abbotsford to the
square inch than any other town
.11 the Vadey. Let us keep on
boosting; say a good word, act
a goo J act, write a' good word
wherever possible in favor of our
town.   T'lun _ "Watch   Abbotsford
The past year has seen the' B. C.
E. R. completed to Chilliwack
giving us communication by tram
lo that town and the coast cities.
We have always had the C. P. ' R.
We get the Great Northern occasionally This keejis us to the fore
and makes the ctown . a railway'
centre that is sure to heLp us grow
Our town is iightad by elec r c.ty
There are few small towns that can
ooast of that.
Let us \ make one resolution at
.ne jiNew Year^to be che means of
showing-the-good points of-Ab-

business. But let everybody be-
cJUne the means of bringing in
a settler during the cqming year;
and --"Watch   Abjbotjsford  jGro.w."
Abbotsford is minus any cross-,
ings on Essendene avenue, which'
is decidedly annoying to many
of us. The crossing in front of
McPhee's store should be repaired
at once for the convenience of all
There should be another crossing
at Alanson's corner towards the
Great-Northern station. ��� Both . of
of them would be appreciated >-e
are sure.
Uf course we are aware that the
government has spent a lot .of
money in Abbotsford thisyqar but
there should be no delay in 'giving
these two crossings.
To -bring before the public '.. the
method in which fruit ishould, be
packed for the market packing
schools will be arranged for by
the provincial government-in any
district. It is however required to
guarantee a minimum attendance
of pupils.
The department of agriculture
provides the instructor- and pays
his expenses. The depaTtment will
bear the cost of packing paper,
fruit, and all othe ^legitimate expenses except that ?of packing
tables/which will be left at each
point after the school is finished.
The responsible bo/dy in e..ch case
whether a muncipal; body, Farmers'
Institute or Fruit Orowers' Association, will be -required to guarantee a minimum of twelve' pupils, but not more than tfifteen, at
V lee of Three Dolt are each, to
take twelve lessons oyf two and    a

rrange'd for in which'the miriimum
guarantee   will    'be      twenty-four
jupiis,  but' not more   than thirty,
lor   the   sam'e  period.      Arrange-
��� nents can be made for an evening'
jr late afternoon' public demonstra
tion oh apple packing for the .bene
.11: of the district at large.
About throe boxes per pupil of
iruit is necessary. The hardier
varieties such as Ben Davis and
vjano are iprei'erred. Fruit (must
be in fairly good condition but it
need not be graded. Associations
should at once secure the necessary fruit, or if none, is now left in
tuc d.strict, this' should be staged
.u tno Line application is made
and the department will look after
Two  tables  IGx-l and  3fcet .high
w.ih burlap top and rests for boxes are  required for fifteen  pupils.
Those tables cost about $8.50 each
when-made   up   -by   a   'carpenter.
Tney are  unnecessary  where fruit
pack.ng  associations   can   provide
tiio.r tables. ' In  cases  where these
tables must be provided please advise  the  department  and  full  instructions for construction will bo

THE LOST  IS FOUND AGAIN  The little Martin.girl who ran  away from Agassi a. and finally, after wandering to the coast, probably over* the tram line to Westminster then to Aliasion has been  taken home by her mother. Constable Black went over to 'Mission  on Wednesday evening anil ���������on  finding the true facts of the case,  he brought the girl's mother vup  from Vancouver the next evening  where ' she ,had gone to look for  the girl. During the girHs stay  in Mission she had a most comfortable home with Mr. and Mis.  F. Hughes of that town. But,  on Wednesday morning she again  left and landed at ]\lr. Hanson's  house. She was taken lo Mission  and the CV J.'. R. consta'blu had  charge until Mrs 'Martin arrived  from Vancouver, on the eveiiing'.s  train. r - '  WIT AND [TUMOR  Tile Editor of I.I10 Northwest Review Talks of Money  It   takes  mousy to' run a   newspaper remarks the SI John,Kansas,  Ne.ws.    What   and   exaggeration?--  What a   whopper!   It has     been  discovered a thousand times; it is  case of airy fancy.   It doesn't take  money  to   run  a   newspaper.     It  can run without mo'hey.   It is not  a,  business venture: ��������� IL is a   charitable institution, a , bogging con-  ".crn,   a   highway   robbery.        iA  newspaper is the child of the air,  a   creature  of   a   dream.   It    can  go on and on and any othsr .business concern would be in the hands  of a , receiver- and'wound up with  'cobwebs in the windows.   IL takes  Wind  to- run  a   newspaper.        It  takes gall to run a   newspaper. It  takes   scintillating   acrobatic  imagination and a   half dozen white  shirts and  a   railway pass  to run  a   newspaper.    Who   ever   needed  money  to   conduct  a   newspaper?  Kind words are the medium of. exchange that do the -bus ness f or,the  .editor���������kind words and church soc  iable  tickets,   and not. many     of  those!   When  you   see  an   editor  "with. .   any '   money ,[ ^ you watch;  He'll be paying his bill and disgrac  ihg his profession.   Never give any  money,'to  an',editor.' '���������] Make 'him  trade it our. ,He likes'.to swa'pV,.' ���������  r Then when you- die, 'after,having -  stood'around for years'and sneered'at the .editor and his little' jim-  crow paper; :with' ail its ads.,- be  sure and have,your  wife  send in  for  three  extra copies by ,o'ne of  your weeping children, and whe'rj  she reads' thegerierous and touch-  !j*3 notice about y" x, forewajnh'jr  ro neglect to ser'-l f-fieati cents to  the   editor.   It   wouJd   overwhelm  him.   Money   is v    a      corrupting  thing.   The editor knows it; what  he wants is'your heartfelt thanks  Then  he  can thank  the    printers  and they can thank their grocers.  Take your job work  to another-  job ofC.ce, and then come back and  ask  for   free  notices.    Get      your  lodge   letterheads   and  stationery  printed out of town, and then feed  the editor with beautiful thoughts  in resolutions of respect and cards  of thanks.   They make" such spicy  reading, and when yb'u pick it up  filled with  these glowing and vivid mortuary articles, you are so  proud of your little local paper.  But 'money,���������scorn the filthy-  thing. Don't let the poor innocent  editor know anything about it.  Keep that for sordid tradespeople who charge for their wares.  The -editor gives, his bounty away  The Lord loves a cheerful giver!  Ee'll take charge of the editor. He  has a charter from the state to  act as door mat for the community  He will get the paper out somehow; and stand up for the town,  and whoopit up for you when you  run for office, and lie about your  pigeontded daughter's tacky wedding and blow about your big-foot'  ed sons when they get a $4 a  week   job,      and      weep over  your shrivelled soul when it is released from its miserable bulk, and  smile at your giddy wife's' second  marriage. Don't worry about the  editor���������he'll get on.

New Westminster, Dec. 23���������Poultry reigned  on the market     this  morning, and all else bowed' to its  sway, the  main produce  of other  weeks of the year falling ,the farthest from sight in the Christmas  rui������;h.   Poultry   (met   the   eyq .Everywhere. It  crowded the      meat  from the   butcher stalls, the eggs  and butter from the dairy vendors'  counter and   the vegetables  from  the   grocers. Flowers   and   cut  plants alone contested the right of  the turkey and goose for control  of the building. The Christmas  market fell -on an opportune day  this year, close to the holiday. As  a result the attendance was one  of the largest that the market  building has been called upon to  accommodate. Buyers elbowed  their way from stall to istall seeking the finest turkey or goose or  the one nearest the size of their  jjuiisfes. Everywhere Christmas  and its -good cheer was evident.  Decorations-6'f green boughs and  colore dpaper adorned the -stands  of the sellers, sthe flower counters  WtDre bright with blooms, and piles  holly, and the butchers displayed  their finest cuts 'of meat.  The turkey was the most sought  after of all the produce on the mar  ket to-day with geese a   close second.   Live  and   dresed  they  were  everywhere.   Every 'salesman  and  woman sold  them.   Dressed poultry was  most in evidence, -turkey  selling at   35c a   \b.t  geese     and  chicken at  25c   The poltry tables  were  crowded   with   sellers,   each  with a   few of th^ir best b'rds   tur  sale.   Farmers who could not fin 1  space at the counters sold     from  boxes on the floor.   The arrival of  the market train from Sumas add  ei  to  the already large  number,  in order to dispose of their bird3  at the late hour, some of the new  arrivals lowered the price on the  geese and  chickens   to  20e a    lb.  An interesting feature of the poultry market was the strong demand  for local birds'.   In the city stores  the buyers could obtain cold storage Eastern birds at 5c ,a   lb less  than they could buy on the market  but they preferred the home fed  bird.  Only a   fair amount of   livepoul  try was brought to the -market.. A-  bout 75 dozen chickens were offered and most of- them were dispos  ed of.   No  change was noticed in  the price of the fowls, although a  large  percentage   were sold  '    by  weight   to-day.   .   Hens   weighing  5 to 6 pounds each brought 20c per  .pound.   Broilers   by   the.    .dozen  $���������1 to  $5, while roasters 4   to.5 lbs  sold at from $7 to $10 per,   dozen  Live turkeys' were offered in small  quantAies.   In all about two dozen  were sola.   They brought from 2!3c  to 29c, per lb.   Geese  were  somewhat'scarce.- Two dozen or     loss  were offered live, at from $.1.25 to  $2.00 each.  Several were sold     al  ipl.To   Several dozen ducks went at  ..-om $1.50  to $2.25  Meat.was a very scarce commod  ity in the wholesale section,, practically none coming in on the boat  The prices remained the same as  lJ3t week. The demand was not  strong, the butchers being well  stocked with meat bought during  the week.The retail bu.c.iers'stalls  did a large business, mostly in  poultry and prime roasts of meat,  were also eagerly sought. Prices  generally were  unchanged.  Eggs continued to fall in .price.  Starting at 65c a dozen the lower  figure ofl ast week, they fell stead  ily until they reached (50c at which  'figure most, were sold. The supply was much larger than last  week and the number of vendors  also increased. But'er remained at  from 35c to 40c.
