Clayburn, B.C., January 2Cth.  The  Burns'   supper  hold, here  last  night' was an enjoyable one, tho company being about 26 in number. .Mr.  Andrew   Brown   was   chairman.-    Ho  passed a few remarks about the fam-'  ous    bard,    and'  gave    tho    "Selkirk  grace," after which the "haggis" was  handed round and supper commenced.  Tho tables were neatly and artistically  set with  Scotch dishes and  vases of  heather,   so   dear   to   every   Scottish  heart.     Tho   supper   was   excellent,  well  served  and  appreciated  by  all.  Supper being oyer, Mr.  Parker gave  the   toast   "The   Immortal   Memory."  Mr.  Wilkie  proposed  "The   Lassies,"  and Mr. Watson "Friends across" the  Sea,"    to    which    everyone    heartily  responded.   Then    there   were   songs  from the following artistes:���������Mrs. Ed-  monstone, Messrs. Gillespie, Montgonv  ery,   Wilkie,   Selby,   Brown,   Carlson',  Parker,   Roncatto   and   Master   Tom  Brown.      Dancing   now   started,'  and  " they kept busy at it till it came near  the turn of the clock. Before parting,  the company caught the hostesses,  Misses. Orr and Brown, in the middle  'of the room "and- sang "He's a jolly  good fellow"- and "She's a dandy."  "Auld Lang ..Syne' was heartily sung  by all,-* and'-everyone'- wenftioTne"'happy  and full of memories of the old folks  in the old country, and Rabbie Burns'  songs ringing-in their ears. ..

ANNUAL  MEETING.  ���������The annual meetings of the Abbotsford and Huntingdon Presbyterian  congregations, were .held on the 16th  and 27th inst., respectively. The board  of managers presented very encouraging reports, as also were.those from  the Session, the Ladies' Aid, the Sunday Schools and the Teacher Training'  Class.. Through the generosity :of  friends of- the Abbotsford congregation,, an addition to the church, building will be undertaken shortly.' The  new addition will be used for Sunday  school purposes.  The Huntingdon congregation 'Will  proceed with the erection of their new  church in the spring.  The ladies of the W. C. .T.

Several  times the Pride blocked the  Hope's deadly haymakers nobly,  with his nose.

A thoroughly representative meeting of the Matsqui-Sumas Board of  Trade "took place in the Masonic Hall  on Monday evening, Feb. 3rd, "with  President Hill-Tout in the chair.  The president, in his usual eloquent  manner, congratulated the members  on the activity manifested, and trusted that the same would- continue during the year.  After the  minutes  of last  meeting  had -been adopted as read,  Secretary  Morley read the correspondence, which  :was~of- a-voluminbus nature-:and-bearing oh many matters of importance to  the  district,  especially  in -connection-  with the proposed leVel crossing over  the' railway tracks at Hazel Street:  A  petition signed by many of the residents  was  left  in  the  hands  of the  president,   to   press   forward'  at   the  earliest opportunity when the Railway  Commissioners have the matter again  under consideration.  The question of promoting a scheme  for an adequate supply of pure water  for the township was referred to the  Water Committee, the gravity of this  matter being recognized by all.  Mr. A. J." Henderson verbally reported the result of his attendance as  a "delegate of the Board at the recent  conference of. the Fraser Valley Municipal Publicity Bureau. After hearing from Mr. Henderson the aims and  object of the organization, the Board  unanimously-resolved to. join the Publicity Bureau and contribute towards  the expenses the sum required. In  the event of the Board receiving a  nomination on the Executive of the  Bureau, the president was unanimously requested to represent the Board of  Trade.  1 At the request of Mr. Boulter, the  members of the Fire Committee were  asked to accompany him while interviewing the general superintendent of  the C P.

A vote of thanks was passed the  ladies who so kindly assisted in making the basket social the success it  was.   -^  The following new members were  enrolled: Jos. Sanderson, J. McNeill,  P.

Friday, February 7, 1913  'A is being said'these days about the need of cheaper  money for .farmers. As a usual thing the farmer of B. C. pays 8  -per cent on his borrowed money. In the United States it is estimated  that the farmer pays S'/j. per cent for his money, while in Germany  -the farmer pays about half that amount on his loans. The idea of a  cheaper'money on long time loans for farmers is getting good hokl  in this Province, and also in the Western States, but there is soon  to be a change as many people are studying the matter at the present,  time and the subject is pretty generally discussed by the masses  of the people. It will reach the cars of some political party soon and  the British Columbia government that answers the call will endear*  itself in the hearts ol! the people in preference to the hearts of-the  land shark and the railway promoter.  Is it not a fact that,,the development of the Fraser Valley is  retarded owing to tlie fact that the farmers cannot secure money  at a low enough rate of interest or on long enough time to warrant  them in borrowing, sufficient sums for their needs. The statement  has been made publicly and no one has come forward to refute it,  "that there were more settlers in the.outlying parts of Mission  Municipality twenty years ago than there is toda3r."  There is a nigger behind the standing tree somewhere or  this would not be the case. Men are as willing to pioneer today as  they ever were, but feel with modern conveniences and present  day prosperity that it is an injustice to ask a1 man to develop raw  farm lands to a state of profitable production at the same time paying the business rate of interest, and a treasury filled with millions  lying rusting at Victoria.  The Dominion and Provincial governments, city and rural municipalities can all borrow money at a low rate of interest, while the ���������  farmer, the small trader and the industrialist, are all compelled to  pay more interest than the land or the business will stand in its  infancy, and then it is only for a very limited time. ,  Time is almost as important a factor as'-low rates of interest to  the borrower, while with the Province, the. Dominion, the city and  rural .municipalities, it is usually immaterial so long as the interest  is paid promptly how long the loan runs, whether five years, ten  years, twenty years or fifty years.  There would not be so many big trust buildings and rich banking institutions in the Province of British'Columbia''.today, if a  co-operative credit system were adopted that would assist the small  farmer, the pioneer farmer, the small trader and the small industrialist whereby he could on the basis of property and-product have  a banking ccedit established, enabling him to borrow at a low rate'  of interest for a term of five or ten years. Many European countries  have established systems of rural co-operative credit. Such a system  was founded in Germany nearly, half a century agd,-.spreading to  other European countries, and have "of late years been'.established  with modifications in Ireland and British India. Different forms  have grown out of .the original principles, applied''under''what are  known in Germany as the Raiffeisen banks, the Schultz-D'elitsch  banks and-the Landshatten. In some instances, notably Belgium,  state aid has been extended effectively.-*   .    '      .        .     *  The provincial government of the province of British Columbia,  has, we are told, eight million dollars of a.surplus  and should the McBride government continue -in its present financial  prosperity there is little doubt but that'in a couple of years this  might be doubled. Would, it not he a good idea for the government  without attempting to establish any of the various co-operative  rural banking systems which have proved a success in other coun-'  tries to at the present session of the Legislatrue make provision by  a small appropriation for expert investigation of the entire subject,  with a view to bringing about praetcal legislative action, if deemed  in the interests of the province?   *  The columns of this paper are open for a discussion of farmers  borrowing money at a1 low rate of interest for periods of five or ten  years. I will be pleased to publsh letters bearng on the advantages  of such a scheme, or if any readers of this paper know from reading  or actual knowledge of co-operative banking schemes of other countries I would appreciate a communication along these lines.  It "is a matter that vitally interests the future welface of this  Valley of ours and the province as a whole, and this paper, would  be pleased to publish the opinions of its readers. I invite discussion  of the subject.

Oregon was represented by  Governor West, Senators R. R. Butler, of The Dalles; I..N. Day, of Portland; Representatives A. H. Baton, f  Eugene; C. A. Appelgren, of Portland;  J. T.

The committees from the two states  said they would unanimously recommend the appropriations to their legislatures and to the government for  the purpose of making a detail survey  of the power project, whose estimated  cost is $23,000,000.

A most enjoyable evening was spent  at the Masonic Hall on Friday evening last by the townsfolk of Abbotsford, at a basket social, followed by  a dance and musical entertainment.  The gentlemen present were in a most  generous mood and the prices realized  for the many handsome baskets beat  all record's. The music rendered by  Messrs. Chamberlain and Hammond  was much appreciated, while the singing and pianoforte solos given by the  Misses Steed,  Mrs.  Geo.  Clark,  Miss   ���������_���������  ,������������������,,  Henderson, and Miss Nelson, brought will be an easy matter to clean, for the  uproarous encores.    Mrs. Len McFee ^ " nnn ^������ +nrnpri nver. the floors  gave a most artistic performance with  her favorite instrument, the trombone,  and was encored,again and again. All  present were loud in their exclamations and surprise at the local talent  forthcoming, which was of a high order. The orchestral music for -the  dances can only be described as  dreamy and raptuous. Mr. Everitt and  Mr. Les Delair were untiring in responding to Tim McElroy's d'emands.  Was there ever a better M. C. than  our Tim?    How did he cultivate that  whistle?  Chairman John McPhee was in happy vein, and his humourous remarks  in the performance of his pleasant  duties greatly contributed to the harmony of the evening.  A. J. Henderson proved a most capable auctioneer in disposing of the  dainty, well-filled baskets.  The general comment when dispersing was: "We have too few of these  pleasant social gatherings."  The fund's of the local fire brigade  of the Board of Trade will be swelled  to the extent of over $100 by this impromptu entertainment, which was so  ably organized by the chairman of the  local fire brigade committee, Mr. Angus Mclnnis, Mr. Len McFee, Messrs.]  Hammond, Morgan, Hay, Ferguson, J.'  vannetta,   and   many   others   ol   the  town, not forgetting Cyril and Arthur  Harrop.  The grateful thanks of the organizing  FOR   SPRING   CHICKENS  Prepare in Advance by Making Coops  and Other Apparatus  It is none too soon to begin making plans for the chickens one expects to raise next year, and to get  the yard and coops ready. If an incubator will be required to take care  of the chickens, and if they are set  under hens one will need a lot of small  coops to keep them and their little  ones in.  Home-made brooders will often answer the purpose. Anyone who "can  saw boards and drive nails can make  one in a short time at "very little expense. The main thing to look out .for  in making a brooder, as well as the  small coops for the separate hens with  their broods, is to see that it can be  easily cleaned. If the brooder or coops  are made separate" from the floors it  will be an easy matter to clean, for the  houses can be turned over, the floors  scrubbed and left to dry for a whole  day in the hot sun.  The floors for the coops will ensure  the safety of the little chickens" from  ra:.s or other animals that might dig  undoi the coops and destroy them as  well as to keep them dry during rainy  weather. It is, not a very- pleasant  thing to get out of bed some stormy  night, go and gather up a hundred or  more half-drowned chickens and take  them into a house where a fire must  be built to warm and revive them.  Later in the season when the chickens get larger it will not be necessary  to keep the coops on these platforms  but they can simply be moved about  as the ground underneath them becomes unclean.  Ii one intends raising the little chickens in the same yard as tlie old ones  are kept in a feeding pen is indispensable. The old chickens will, not  only gobble lip the food but will also  trample the little ones under their  big teet and often kill ; them. The  feeding pen should be made with slar,  sides and top and the slats will have  to be placed quite close together for  the little chickens. The slats can be  so arranged that every one can be removed anj time desired. With,an arrangement of this sort it is no trouble  pto feed the little chickens for they can  insid'e the pen as long as they want  to and are safe from the interference  by the larger ones.  Do not by any means neglect to provide proper drinking troughs or fountains. The little chickens get so thirs:  ty over night that they will often  leave their morning feed to get a  drink. The water vessels should be  located in the shade in order to keep  the water as cool as possible in summer.  Gates  and Doors, etc." Mfg.    Write  469 Burnside -Rd.j Victoria, B. C.
