J\ Fee in writing to this paper in answer Lo a leter. which he received says: Re fruit packages, I cannot' emphasize too strongly the advisability and necessity for a standardized pacage for different fruits  Tho deep full pint is the only package  for strawberries. And while the full  pint for raspberries and blackberries,  lias many points in its favor in the  way of a well known definite quantity, from a grower's point of view, a  shipping point of view, a marketing  point of view, it has many disadvantages. As I am on the marketing end  let me begin at that end, taking first  the retailing. The wholesale opening price for raspberries and blackberries for many years has been ?3,  per case. This means that the retailer sells at 15 cents a box, making  .p.50 a case. This is a small margin as a retailer selling.by the box can  be expected to sell at Whether it  is a 2-5 or a full pint, the retail  price will be the same: If we tried.  for 53.25 on the case, it would only; slightly packed full pint no retailer  leave the retailer 35^ on the case,; wants to handle an apparently slack  a margin he will not work on, and if j filled pacage.      The    consumer does  And by the. same token, a price of  $2.4 0 or .$2.30 should, not be made  for a 2 for 25������ retail, not changing the retail price does not increase  consumption. Some wholesale houses will' make a $2.40 or a $2.30  ! price. This is simply to take trade  away from others who are making a  $2.50 price, as no retailer objects to  a longer margin of profit and will buy  from tho houses giving him the longest margin, if it should be necessary  to make a further drop for the retailing by the box, $2, is the only  logical price to make, as that makes  a retail price of 10<} a box. Now  from a case point of view, the consumers of Alberta, will not pay over  $2.50 a case, except for some specially nice cases, or in case of scarcity  and then buy very sparingly. So we  make a canning price of $2. 25,$2.15,  $2.10. This-making a retail price of  $2.50, $2.40, $2.30. Any retailer  will pick for the heavier case to give  his a little Jonger margin, or his customers a little better value, but he  will object to paying more for it. At  the same time he will take ,.a" well-  filled  2-5   in preference to  an even  he tried for 2 for 35^ the consumer  would make a lot of unpleasant talk  for him, also quite a few consumers  would .only want one1 box and do not  like the '20? a box or the penny  change. Then the change to 2 for  25tf which son has to be made, to  make a 2 for 25tf price, $2.50 a case  must be made to the retailer. A retailer will not pay $2.70 or even  $.2.60 and retail at 2 for 25^, so it  2Ci# which soon has to be made, to  $2.75 or $2.GO from $3.00, as it  leaves the retail price still 15<? and so  '   Died at Clayburn  The funeral of the late Mrs. Alice  Thompson of Clayburn took place in  church on'the 24th of. .January; after  which tho deceased was taken to Abbotsford ror burial. The llov. Mr.  Miller officiated.  Deceased lady leaves to mourn her  loss, a husband and seven children.  One, son, the oldest, belongs fo the  .1.31st   Battalion; in   England.  Many attended the funeral and a  large number of wreathes were given  'byt local people including one from  the deceased's mother of Manitoba.  The pallbearers were Messrs Cooper, Purver, Plommer, Brooks, Gough  and Kerr.  .Mr. J.. 1-1. Jones of -Mission City  had charge of funeral arrangements.  full pints. But it must be remembered the Puyullup berry is an altogether different berry from the B. C. berry. It is a large seeded juiceless  berry in comparison with the B. C.  berry. It will hold it's shape and  carry long distances splendidly, hut  from an eating point ol: view, does  not compare with the iine- flavored-  juicy B. C. berry, so while the full  pint may be the best for the Puyullup berry it does not follow that such  is the case with the B.  C.  berj-y.  From shipping point to consumer  point of view, the 2-5 shallow is with  out question, the best pacage, and  from a grower's point he is getting  just as much for the 2-5 as he would  be for the full pint and he is penalized a higher express charge, picking  charge and cost of production  charge. From a handling point of  view the different size packages are a  jonfusion.

And if you  find that your, inclination is to  shop where you are invited to  shop rather than continue to be  a customer of the shop which  never solicits your good will, you  need have no compunction of  conscience.  Alway Shop Where You  Are Invited To Shop.  Your Trade is Appreciated There  Conditions in Germany  Necessarily all statements emanating from Germany of an unfavorable  nature are .unofncial, but those that  have lately been made public tire so  circumstantial that it is difficult .not  to believe them to be well founded.  One of them is that the drafts upon  the man power of the nation have  been, so great that boys and men between 17 and 4ii, who have been declared unfit for military service, arc  being dragponcd info the army, and  one statement describes the process  as similar to the slave-driving in  Belgium. Another statement, which  is vouched for by the paper 'publishing it,is that food is very much scarcer than is generally believed and  that people are dying of hunger. We  Jhul if impossible to rejoice.over these  tilings except so far as they may serve  to render (he end of tho'war nearer.  That climax may come as many of  us supposed it might, come al an earlier stage of the war, by an uprising  of the people against tho militarism  that has fastened itself around their  necks.  A brief summary of the war, taken  in connection   with the infernal  conditions of Germany,will show the hol-  lowncss  of the claim   that she is in  a. position  lo discuss terms of peace  :.is a victor.     Tho I'lrU, object of Germany was to seize Paris, then crush  Russia,  and   thus  be able  to  compel  Great  Britain   to assent  to   whatever  Berlin   might   propose.     This  ambition  was defeated at the Mame, and  history will accord t.o Fidel Marshall  Jo IT re  due  honor  for  the  wonderful  service  ho  that  day  rendered  to  liberty.    The objective of the invasion  of Russia was Petrograd.-    That has  been frustrated.      The second 'great  effort in the West was directed to the  capture of Calais and the occupation  of the French coast.    That was  defeated at Ypres.     Later we had the  zeppelin   campaign   against   England  a most miserable fiasco.    Then 'came  the thrust at Verdun, which was expected to be both a dynastic and strategic triumph.    It not only ended in  failure but in disastrous defeat. Then  the Entente powers assumed the offensive, and on the Russian front inflicted disaster after    disaster    upon  the Enemy.    Tn the West this movement found erpression in the Battle  of the Somme, a prolonged series of  Allied triumphs.    Turkey was urged  to participate in the war in the hope  that thereby a road would be opened  to Egypt and India.    Once more failure was encountered.       German    intrigue attempted to secure co-operation from Greece join the flank of the  Allies at  Salonika.      Failure again,  although  it ,looked suspiciously like  success at one time.    Then came the  supreme effort    against    Roumania.  for a time this looked like a series  of victories,  but Mackensen's  forces  have   been   checked.    Germany   told  the  world  that    von     Hindenburg's  name was a synonym for victory; hut  that commander seems to   have   shot  his bolt. Osia Minor was to have fed  lhe hungry millions of Germany, but  it  has   failed   to   do   so.    Roumania  was then looked for as a source      of  fcod  supply,  only  to prove a  disappointment.     Under these circumstances, for Germany to pose as a; victor  is as absurd as for President Wilson  to pose as an arbiter of tJie fate of  nations.���������Colonist  New Westminster Pioneer Gone  \*������  The funeral of the late L.ewis F.

The  claim was made that the girls who  work in these stores do not receive  a living wage a nd that as a result  (hey are forced  into  lives of sluuiie.  The truth of these averments was  generally sustained by the investiga-  ��������� tiou. It was ascertained that the  minimum expense of a girl in Chicago  who is wholly dependent upon herself is $8 per week. A great many  girls receive less. A large number  received substantially this sum. A  1'ov.- received more. There was much  in the situation that was deplorable,  much that needed remedying.  But another interesting feature   of  the probe was the relation of the enormous profits made by at least one  big   mail   order   house   in   Chicago.  Seven millions profit annually with a  thirty   million  investment is,  to   use  an expressive term,    "going    some."  This  firm  does  a heavy   business in  Montana and  throughout  the northwest.     It claims to be able to undersell IVLontana merchants and gets    a  great deal on this promise.    There is  it appeals at the sacrifice of the virtue of Illinois girls.  Tins- recent big dividend of (he  .Chicago concern should open the eyes  of Montana patrons of eastern mail,  order houses.

What is true of the Chicago mail  order houses may most likely be true  in regard' to our eastern mail order  houses. They don't extend credit;  they don't pay taxes to build up our  institutions; they don't help us in.any  way to make Mission City or any part  of the Fraser Valley a better place to  live in; and there is just a possibility  that  they   do  not  pay  wages   in  all  reason; to believe that this undersell-j cases beyond a mere existence: Pa-  were really tested out, and the Mon-! tronize our home merchants and get  tana home herchant could be given [ good value for your money with the  his due,the chances are that he would   chance  that  in your  favor of  being-  win out, and would actually give his  Montana customer more for the money, all things considered, that the foreign merchant.
