'P1IIIKH    MfJMT   COMMISSIONERS  APPOINTED AT MEETING  A meeting of the property owners  of Abbotsford was held in the Masonic Hall on Tuesday evening, lor  the purpose of appointing Commissioners on the Lighting Petition. At  the opening' of tiic meeting, Mr. I<\  J. R. Whitchelo, president of the  District Board of'Trade, explained  briefly the work the Board had undertaken in preparing a preliminary  petition thus far. Mr J. J. McPiiee  was then' appointed by the ratepayers as chairman of the meeting, and  Mr. R. J.,. Shortreed as' secretary.  Names already signed on the petition were compared to those on the  assessment roll, and in one or tAvo  instances it was found that by misunderstanding the act, names had  been placed on the paper of people  who only owned agreements of sale  and were not actual registered owners of land.  However, after these names had  been struck from the : list, a sufficient per cent, of the town property  had been signed up to carry on the  lighting project.  After some further discussion had  been indulged in, Mr. A. George,-Mr.  C. Millard and Mr. J. J. McPhee  were appointed as commissioners,  Mr. J. J. McPhee to act as secretary.  The petition will again be circulated for signatures, with the names  of the above commissioners on it, as  is required by the ' Rural Lighting  Act, and when completed will be  dealt with by the Government in the  usual  way. -  BEEVE J.

D., Skinner of Vancouver gave a  most worthy 'address oxi Hie."Duties'  of Citizenship," which was very  much   appreciated   by, the  gathering.  By the request of.the majority of  the members of the association the  regular annual meeting has been  postponed until February 19th, the  weather conditions being such as to  prevent' those living at a distance  from attending.  Mrs. M. Fraser, daughter of Rev.  and Mrs. W. Robertson, left, on  Wednesday for Eastern points, where  she will spent a few months.  ERCHANDISE  CITY PI  Winter in the Frasor Valley is  something that wo residents, who  have been in B. C. for some time, do  not. altogether appreciate., but occasionally a little winter comes along  and we all feel that our climate is  not what we expect if to be when we  h''ve visitors. But there is' this  fihout it that we have to do something to please so many prairie  n^ople. and to show our hosnitality  the -'���������'inter man gives us a little cold  weather, as hp believes we want  "-"ore settlers here. Old tinier says  there v/ns y.oth'ne* like this before so  many started coming from the east  of the Rockies.  A sleierhine parts* of about thirty  "001)1 e offended the dance at the  Matsnui Hall last evening, and a  very jolly time was snent, both at  the dance and during the sleigh ride.  Alter a very practical trial, we are convinced that it  is utterly impossible to sell dependable merchandise at  the close prices we feel the people of this district are  dise at prices that will make Abbtosford the trading  centre, and continue a ��������� credit business; so from February 1st, we are placing our business on a strictly  CASH basis, with the result that we are offering you  Groceries at the closest prices, equal to any quoted by  city and mail order houses, while we can truthfully say  that our drygoods and men's wear, boots and shoes will  be found to be considerably less in many cases.  Please bear this in mind we are offering specials with  the. idea of trying to coax business, a' practise generally  in vogue, but our desire is to offer all lines of merchandise at prices that will make Abbotsford the trading  centre of its large surrounding district. All we ask is  your investigation and co-operation. There is no  occasion to point to the MANY advantages of cash;  A few of our grocery prices:  Rice, a lb  .7%c Canned Pineapple, a tin .23c  Flour, 49's . $1.90 Corn Flakes, a pk  . 10c  We'will publish si most complete list very shortly;  in the meantime bring in any list you may have and personally compare our prices.

Curse  it  if you   will,  but the fact remains that the humble'  ' and much abused flivver and its contemporaries' havo done    noble  work  in  certain  instances.  Did you ever, back in the 00's  read in your home paper of as manv  well-attended family re-unions as in  the last half decade? What would  the picture show do if there were no  flivver? Have you not seen more  of the country during the past five  or seven years than, you ever did before the flivver came into existence?  Hack down cant were not the poop's  who lived seven or eight miles away  ..grangers, why? l.'.ocauso it was too  .far for you to walk'on Sunday. You  wont to the fall fair to shake then:  . by the hands���������it was once a year.  That is why you think so much of  the fall fair in this' province���������the  memories of the past  A few years ago. a family gathering fifty or sixty miles away meant  a long, tiresome, dusty railroad trip,  with possibly two or three changes  of trains. Today it means a tank full  of gas', a few turns of' the grease  cup, a quart or two of oil, a gallon  of fresh water and a few extra inner  tubes���������then a pleasant spin of two  or three hours.  The flivver has almost eliminated  many, of the small jerk-water railways. Twenty���������yes, ten���������years ago,  a large proportion of the people of  the country did not know that damn  Yankee  was two words'.      Now���������  During the summer months if you  will bet on one of the principal highways of the country���������the- Kings way  ��������� for instance���������you will see a stream  of automobites hitting it fo- the  large city, possibly taking a tou>* 'of  the Pacific coast. In the fall many  go down south and come back in the  spring.    We are neighbors, all.  Our children and grandchildren  will probably take the week-end  air- trips over the Rockies back to  friends on the prairie, with a couple,  of crates of berries under the seat:  or to consult old histories to find  out the why and the . wherefore of  many things that we hav3 simply  read of���������not seen.  You rise in the morning, put- gas  in the tank, take a swipe at the spark  plus, a spin at the crank, then go  rolling, and bumping, a *d thumping  along to White Rock cr Crescent,  with a prayer in your heart that  the thing won't go wrong. No conductor tc outlier and get you all fussed  up, no eyes full of cinders (but you  do get some dust), then finish tht>  day with a swim in the <3ait brine:  but you couldn't, have done it without the flivver.  THE GIRL THAT WOULD WIN  That girl that gives way to a desire to gad about the street and cultivate the acquaintance of young  men, and act the simpering simpleton  is laying the foundation for a useless  after life.  Ten to one, when married, she will  develop into a slatternly gossip, if  no  greater  misfortune  befalls  her.  It is the girl of good, sound sense,  the girl that loves home and helps  her mother, that wins the desirable  man, and becomes1 ah ornament to  womanhood. The gir! who does this,  and devotes some of her spare time  to reading, and strives for the grace  of mental culture, commands the  respect and esteem of everybody,  while the gadding one wins only the  admiration of those who admiration  counts  for  naught.  more satisfied customers is L-> be  able to sell goods at the most reasonable prices���������at prices' that give mure  value than   the  mail  order house  The merchant has got to havj his  profit���������lie's got fo have, his percentage, just as the farmer and ��������� the  blacksmith have got to have their  percentage. Some people act as  though the merchant should have no  profit at all���������-but this belief is, of  course,  non-scnsieal.  If the merchant does not get his  legitimate perccntjige of profit he  cannot stay in business. Neither can  the fruitgrower or the blacksmith or  the printer.'  And wo all want to stay in business, don't we?  If we are put out of business, our  town dies. If is busine-s'-, that makes  a town and keeps tho contiguous district alive and flourishing.  Streets, houses, trees, churches  and automobiles do not make a town.  Trade is the important factor. Trade  means that production and labor are  the vital forces behind.  Production would be useless without an outlet through trade and  commerce���������except as a means of  sustaining individual "life, or bare  existence.  We want more out of I if? than a  bare existence. Wo want the host  educational and social jnlvantages  that make life worth living. We  want and must havo many, mauy  things that only a hearty, .inter-dependent community spirit and iaetiv-  ity can give us.  To keep this burg intact we must  live and let live. We must patronize one another and see that all worthy going concerns are kept going,  adding new ones when occasion demands.  If all the business people were to  combine and send their printing out  of town the community ,would very  shortly lose the printery���������one of its  most important, . progressive functions. If the "farmers of the community boycott the merchants of the  town, every live business man would.  ie forced to get out of town���������and  so on until there would be no town,  and no community worthy of the  name.

The various bodies interested have  had the question of taxation before  ���������them for sover;il months and the  whole situation, as it affects Canadian business, has been thorough 1-'  canvassed. Each organization has  obtained the views of individual  members, local executives aurt divisions and these have'been Inirnionized  as far as possible. A. preliminary conference, at which each association  was represented, took place in Toronto on December n and G and a series of .resolutions were tentatively a-  dopted. These were referred back-  to the several organizations for fur-  thcir consideration, sincl at a second  conference which has been arranged,  they will receive such final revision  jis may be deemed necessary before  presentation to the Government  'Manufacturers, wholesalers and  ���������retailers of the Dominion realize  that one of the most serious problems  facing business in Canada ;it present  has to do -\yith taxation. Revenues  must of necessity be raised, and  there is no desire to evade responsibly, but the question to be decided is  how can .taxation be most equitablv  distributed and most economically  collected, so that it will impede as  little as possible the1 welfare ;uk������  growth of the country's business.

STUART MOTORS  Chevrolet and Nash Agents  Mission City, B. C.  WONDERFUL   MAN  "U ILLY" is home at. last; after  -*-' years of travel in foreign  lands, and long months spent in the  mud, rain and water of the Canadian  front in Flanders Billy has at last  arrived at home���������and his homecoming is a thing of romance.  ''Billy" is a dog, but a wise little  dog and a friendly little dog. He  was quite willing to make friends  with all nice people, but there he  stopped. No one could take the  place of his rightful master, and for  four long years "Billy" sought his  lost best friend on the docks at  Quebec.  It was there Billy lost his master  the day he arrived in Canada in company with a regiment of returning  soldiers that came home on the  "Empress of France", and since that  day never an ocean ship has come  to the Canadian Pacific wharf but  that "Billy" was there to welcome it  and to inspect every passenger that  came off in the hope of finding his  long lost  owner.    Everybody liked  "Billy", and time and again a comfortable home was offered him, but  back he came to the dock in search  for the lost unknown, and seemed  content to spend the rest of his life  in that occupation.  "Billy" became a public figure;���������  his picture and his story got into  the papers, and thus he found his  home. Major W. C. Lamson, of the  26th New Brunswick Battalion, read  the story and believed that "Billy"  was "Don", a wire-haired terrier  that had attached himself to the,  26th, and had been accepted as %  regimental mascot and personal'  friend by the entire battalion. So1  "Billy" was sent to Minto, N.B., and  on his arrival the recognition be-j  tween him and Major Lamson vf&s  mutual and enthusiastic. Billy's!  troubles and travels are over and he;  again answers to the name of "Don"i  as the soldiers of the old 26th knewj  him. Before him lies an honored age'  of restful ease as befits one who has'  ended his quest successfully.  (By the Rocky Mountain I-Thymster.)

FEBRUARY ROT) AND GUN  A perusal of the- February issue  of* Rod and Gun in Canada, the well-  known Canadian outdoors magazine,  reveals a liberal supply of entertainment, and instructive reading. One  thing that has always featured this  national sportsmen's journal, is the  diversity of subjects it covers and  like the preceding numbers, the February number has somothihng of interest and of value for sportsmen,  from the Atlantic to the Pacific.  There is a feature article. "Hunting  Wild Horses' in Southern Saskatchewan." by Harry M. Moore, that is  well worth reading. There is fiction  too of a high order, while such prominent naturalists and students of  wild life, as Bonnycastle Dale and J.  W. Winson contribute fine articles.  The Fishing Notes department contains an article on the light lure,  'that will be read appreciatively',' by  anglers, while the Gun.-*, .and Ammunition department is well up to its  . usual high standard, and that means  fi great deal. The other departments,  the additional features, the many  fine illustrations, all. combine to  make up a magazine that will meet  with instant favcr.

As a result of over 20 yenr������ pni.e-  t.ien! experience and also Irom comparisons with tho experience of other districts and growers along the  same lines, I am submitting an estimate of the cost of production of  red raspberries in our district which  'may, to some extent, help growers to  ascert;un the actual cost, of production in their own individual c-iscf".  Of course (hero hiis1 always been and  will always bo an, honest difference  of opinion as fo the cost of production of ra(] raspberries, and especially so as between the canner and the  tho grower. The canner has always expressed tho desire to treat,  the grower fairly, and the grower is  :ils;o interested in the success of in-*'  cjiuiicr, as tho caiiner's 'success rog-  uljit.es, or should regulate, the fiut:-  ccs.s olVfho grower, therefore -tho  necessity for lijirmonious and co-operative dealings  between  the two.  In   working out     this esfiioate     I  ii.m quite well    aware    that, no    two  growers nave like condition? to  work, under. The soil,will bn' different, the drainage will be difKM'irM':  frost may interfere more with one  than another, and most important of  all is the grower himself, Ouo grower will make good where another will  fail. Each, grower to find out the  actual results he is securing can  lake the figure I have used and work  out his own problem.  I have used the following figures  as a b;isis for computing the cost.  That, implanted Fraser Valley 'land  suitable- for tho growing of Cuthbert  red raspberries is reasonably worth  $800.00   per acre.  That if the grower purchases 10  acres of land at a total cost of $������,-  000.00 he is entitled to 7 per cent,  interest on the investment, for the  reason that he could loan the money  on first class mortgage security'that  would pjiy him 7 per cent, interest.  That the grower is entitled to all  costs of preparing, planting installing posts' ii.nd wires, and su'tablo  berry shedfs and quarters for bd/rv  pickers, to the original and land investment, and to all'-interest thereon.  or his own time. To successfully operate 10, acres of berries, a grower  must be on the job all the time during the whole year and for this time  covering the work he does on the  farm plus the plannings of the marketing and the general supervision,  he is entitled to an average salary of  $125.00. per month or $1500.00 per  year, which  is $150.00 per acre.  The profitable production life , of  the Cuthbert Red Raspberry is estimated to be 10 years from,the time  of planting.  That the first year after planting  there will be no returns. During the  second year a yield of, 1000 lbs. per  acre at the estimated value of 10  cents per lb. and from the third to  the tenth year inclusive there should  be eight full crops' producing U000  lbs. per acre.  If the'life of the field is ten years  it is necessary and only fair to depreciate the investment in th3 Dulld-  ings, posts, wire, canes and field  equipment from the beginning, to the  end of the tenth year, at which time  the posts will have rotted off the  wire will be two thirds exhausted,  and the buildings worth' loss than  when constructed. * Estimating the  life of ;he buildings at 20 years, .the  posts at 10 years', the berry wire at  12 and 1-2 years and the carriers  and field equipment at 5 years    the  t  IANFF  INK  llj* TfcniitMTITfTTf "^���������^"<"������'laiHi  nanaa wmi-wai .iwngw  NTER  [������22221  P^^^m^mmm^^m^^^K^^^^S^S  taki  ra Ski J  at  Ban  ns  ump  ff  mi  imi������  JSJATURE has made Banff, Alberta, one of the finest summer and  winter resorts in the world. Heretofore most.of the visitors came in the  summer. Within the last few years  large numbers have been attracted  in winter when sports carnivals  have been held with great success.  The season 1D22-192U is likely to  make a new record in the popularity  of Banff as a winter sports centre.  Did you ever ski down a 'm������le-long  ski-slide ��������� in a pass in the Rocky,  Mountains? Did you ever swim in  a hot sulphur swimming pool and  gather snow from the sides..to snowball your companions? Did you  ever meet a deer suddenly on a  mountain road and find it unafraid?  Did you ever waltz on skates? Did  you over climb a mountain and slide  all the way down its side on your  sriow-shoes?  All these things you can do in  -winter at Banff���������������������������famous Canadian  mountain resort, 4,504 feet above  sea level in the clear bracing air of  the Rocky Mountains.  One of the most unique attractions of Banff is the swimming, in  the hot pools. Sulphur Mountain is  named for its remarkable health-  giving springs of sulphur water.  These gush out of the side of the  mountain, and even in zero weather  are so warm that they are delightful  for   swimming.     <  Ample opportunity is afforded for  every variety of winter sport. Down  on the river is a rink wheiv- one may  practise figure-skating, or watch  some accomplished skaters.waltzing  to music. One of the best toboggan  runs comes down the side of Tunnei  Mountain. Skiing is also a popular  sport here and splendid opportunities  are offered for jumps'on the mountain   slopes.       Tht  little  mountain  W^^^BKKtSk  w?&  Girl Hockey  Teams at  Banff  Carnival  town, is also famous for hockey and  a number of fast teams have their  home here among which those of the  ladies are far from the least important.  There are walks with unique  attractions around Banff. You may  be coming down one of the beautifully graded roads, flanked by the  slender ranks of the mountain pines,  and a deer will walk out of the  woods just ahead of you and stand  and gaze at you. This is' beeaus<.-  Banff is in a goveimment parK  where it is against the law.to shooi  wild animals. Any day walking  down the main street, you may mod  a large mountain sheep. But he  is no longer a. wild one���������he is the  mascot of the mounted police stationed here.    There is also the buf  falo park to visit, and a glimpse of  one of these magnificent animals is  largely sought.  But the outstanding wonder of  Banff is its mountains. Whatever  winter sports you may delight in,  you are always ringed by an amphitheatre of mountains. Range upon  range, and snow-covered peak beyond peak, they tower above one and  stretch away ir.to the distance.  Against the snow on their sides the  dark mountain pines stand out in  sharp relief. In climbing one is  tempted'to stop often, for every new  level brings into view fresh peaks,  and hitherto ungucp.sed vaileys. t  Banff is easy of access, beintr on  the main line of the Canadian Pacific Railway, three and a half hours'  journey from Calgary.

This means that the-grower  should deduct from his annual salary $84 0.00 to cover the actual hand  labor he renders to the farm. After  deducting the $840.00 it leaver; a  balance due him of $660.00. This is  a proper charge against the cost of.  production, which means that $03  per acre per year in addition to the  actual hand labor is hired and-pftid  for or rendered by himself.  No account is taken into consir'er-  ation for a home, barns, outbuildings or insurance on buildings. All  costs are reduced to a unit of cue  acre and finally to one pound of berries. This estimate is based on a  production of 6000 lbs. of berries per  acre, but I have also submitted a cost  to the grower who produces from ,  3000 lbs. per acre to 8000 lbs. per  acre based on the cost of produc- '  tion ��������� as outlined. Every grower l  should carefully measure ' his  acreage of Cuthbert Red Raspberries  and keep an accurate cost of production per pound of his crop.

Principal and interest are payable in Canada, London  or New York, at the option of the  holder; at par of exchange. The  name and business of Pat Burns  needs no, introduction to the people  of British Columbia. For over thirty  years with .uniform -success this  great business, starting in a very  humble way, has; served the people  in the distribution qf very necessary  food supplies, and further, by the  vision and generosity of Pat Burns  himself, on more than one occasion,  has stepped between the cattle i|j  rancher and disaster. - Pat Burns haa  faced his responsibilities as the  West's largest packer manfully, and  his material success is not begrudged  him by any Westerner. With assets  of over eleven million dollars as  against $3,500,000 comprising this  bond issue, and earnings nearly  three times the bond interest charges, with the splendid character and  reputation of the man behind the  ���������bonds', this issue undoubtedly represents the best industrial bond issue that has been offered the Canadian public for many years. Offered  at 100 and accrued interest to date  of delivery, the splendid response  made by the peoples of B. C. to this  offering is ample evidence of the  high opinion in which the security  and the head of the firm is held.  Burdick, Logan and Co., Ltd. are  glad to help in the distribution of  this issue, and applications should  be forwarded to them without delay, in order to prevent disappointment. The bonds will be ready for  delivery on or about Feb. 15th. It is  hoped that this is only the first  Western Company that will appeal  to the West for the funds necesf.r.yy  to expansion of Western business.  If Western business men, g.-owing  with the growth of the West, cannot  look with confidence to their own  people for the funds so necessary  for expansion of legitimate successful enterprises, to whom can they  look. If the West has not confidence  in itself who will have? The proceeds of this bond issue are to be us- j  ed by P; Burns and Co. Ltd. for the  expansion of their business.

I JOY I)  OlilVKlt TAIKS  OO-Ol'KKATION   AT MISSION  Huntingdon  The death occured early on Tuesday morning of Frances Dawson,  two and one half year old daughter of Mr. and Mrs. P. It. Dawson.  The little girl had only been ill a  short time, and her recovery had  been hoped for.  The funeral was held on Thursday  afternoon to the Hazlewood Cemetery, Rev. W. Robertson officiating.  The sympathy of the entire community is extended to the sorrowing  family.  Mr. A. A. Watson has sold his  farm at. St. Nicholas and with his  wife and family will come to Abbotsford to reside in the house owned by  Mr. Thorburn. Mr. J. Arthur of Alberta, who is now the owner of the  fine farm at St. Nicholas, will take  possession this week.  All lumber mills and camps  throughout the Valley are closed  owing to the snow and cold weather.  Mr. F. Wood of Langley Prairie  has come to Abbotsford to reside and  has rented the house recently occupied by Mr. J. C. Alder.  The Langley High School Boys'  Basket Ball team played against the  Abbotsford Boys' Junior team here  in the Alexandria Hall last Saturday  afternoon, and were defeated by the  home tean by a score of 24-4. The  game was very well played by both  teams.  At. a well attended meeting at Mission City yesterday a number of the  Abbotsford growers heard a most  interesting speech on how co-operation is carried on ,in California, given by Boyd  Oliver',' Sapiro's partner.  Sapiro's speech was very fully  reported in the Post a couple of  week ago, and the address of Mr.  Oliver was along the same lines,  maybe not so fully, but it contained  much,of the same subject matter.  Those who read what was in the Post  would have appreciated Mr. Oliver's  personal delivery of the speech.  One important point was that the  business men of the community  should co-operate with the fruitgrowers, thus giving the man who  raises the berries the. benefit of the  business man's experience from the  business point of view. It seems to  the Post that it would be perfectly in  order for the board of trade at its  luncheon next Thursday to decide to  organize along lines that would assist the'grower.' The interests of the  businessman, said Mr. Oliver, ' ar������  identical .with' those of the grower,  and they should work together. It  might be mentioned here tha^, the  business men of Mission City took a  hint and held a meeting at night  following the speech, to' talk the situation over with the F. & M. directors. The fruit industry is' at -' the  present time around Abbotsford what  it was around Hatzic, Dewdney and  Mission about fourteen years ago.  By uniting now and adopting the  modern methods Abbotsford growers  would gain time and the business'  men would be helping not only the  growers but themselves. Of course,  this is air providing the fruit growers are willing to .receive such co-operation.  Mr. Grant the market commissioner also gave a very interesting talk  on the market situation.  Hon. E. D. Barrow, minister of  agriculture, was present at the meeting, and said that the government  was pleased to help the growers iri  the matter of co-operation, and believed it was in the interests of all  Sapiro and Oliver should meet the.  growers and explain co-operation so  fully.
