In the 'estimation of the citizens  of   Abbotsford   although   perhaps  not our ideal of what Abbotsford  will be in years to come, it is now  'he best we have; but because wc.  ireunder   the   supervision   of   the  ���������rrovincial government is .-hat r.ny  reason  why  the town  should    be  as at present,   l'f we have as we  are told by the medical authorities  nd who  is competent.to contract, rmong our citizens those af-  - cLed with small-pox; why .not .es  liabl'sh a'   pest house for 'their 'con  'veaiie'nce  and  the comfort  of  the  rest of us.  The present  situation is  an excellent  argument 'for incorporation.   There is  another little town  iioc   far   away,   across   the   river,  :hat  is   thinking along   the  same  j'ines.   If the town were incorpor-  ���������:ed  lio   provincial  health   officer  /oiud have the power to quaran-  ���������ii'O   the- town.   Would it  not  be  better for us to [pay bujeh-higher  taxes for the- next ten lyearis than  i.olose the business we) >are losing  these days; and suffer for the big  black-eye - the - town   is     -(getting  these days.   This is  something to  think  about," as it  might  happen  v-v ���������  ���������   -O- ������������������  up this young nation and developing our resources.  .Xot since 1879 has such a radical  change been attempted in the Canadian   policy.   Then   the   premier,  Sir   John   A.   Macdonald   went   to  the  country 'and  won.   Of  course  the Canadian .farmer was a .long  time in 'getting a   dollar a bushel  for  his   wheat,  but' hebelieved  in  the .policy placed before the people.   Will the Laurier, government  ask the people to ratify ith'e reciprocity   agreement.   We   have   no  assurance that it will.  Those afL'ctcd; there seems to  be many, are asking the government to withhold tariff changes.  The farmer should know where'he  .s to be pinched. The fruit grower  can surely see what effect it will  Have on his occupation. lh?. gard  ner can apparent.y see his .doom.  ionic of the manufacturers are ev-  i--n asking that no change ibe made.

It' is not only important to  know how to cook, but lit is equally important to know where to  cook. Cooking in a dirty kitch-  'en can never produce good-food.  The idea is simply -preposterous,  yet kitchen Avails are left for  months���������sometimes for years  without  cleansing.  In the first, place the kitchen wall  should have a light tint tha't the  merest fleck of dirt can be seen  that the sheerest cobweb can be  ui-L.sheu away; that the tiniest  water bug can be .discerned. It is  a.d .folly expecting clean food in  a    kitchen with dirty walls.  Kitchen walls to be thoroughly  satisfactory should be alabastined  the same as every other .wall in  the house. They should be coated  regularly.,in the spring and fall  of 'each year with 'a   light tint.  The care of the pantry requires  constant attention.' The .walls  sh<J������.uld be biushed over every year,  the. dishes removed from the shelves ,which 'should be thoroughly  wiped with 'hot water.If there are  ant holes or any-other insects in  une pantries a thick putty ui the  wall coating can be made and all  the- ant holes .can be 'filled with it  which will protect the pantry from  the incursions of disagreeable insects and mice.

Nelson in Opportunities  It was two years ago last March  that' I   started in to ou;. the first  timber on  my place near Abbots  ford.   II   now   have   fifteen   acres  under   cultivation   and   ten   acres  under   pasture.   I   have   550  trues  planted.   Last  spring  I    started a  nursery and grafted 8/100 one-year  old'seedling  stocks; the  varieties  being Noj tie n Spy, Jonathan, and  Golden   apples   for   a   late  .fruit,  and the  Gravenstein and King of  Tompkins for   fall  apples.   I   was  careful about  my scions   for graft  nig, sending for them to one of the  most reliable   growers in  the   pro  vince.   The   young   nursery      has  done  very   well.   I   intend  in 1911  to  graft  10.000 French  crab-apple  stocks for which I' have sent uu--  <ic- to France, because the French  cmb-apple 'seed  makes,     J.   ftave  learned a   better and hardier root  for grafting than the nativq stock  Nexi s,pring I   expectto plant 200  more apple trees, the. varieties being  the   Northern   Spy,   Jonathan  and ihe Grimes Golden.    These var  ieties are my choice for winter apples.   For fall  apples tmy experience has been that the Gravenstein  Wealthy and  King are (preferable  A   frir'.t grower who goes into the  market with  ihese .six  varieties <s  . bound to sell them at, good prices  On   a   ten   acre   plot   I      would  plant twenty each of Gravenstein  Wealthy, King, Northern Spy and  Grimes Golden for fall and waiter  For summer app es I   would plan:  two Yellow   Transparent and   six.  Duchess of Oldenberg.    As to fruit  trees rather than apples, 1 ��������� would  .plant in plums, one Bradshaw, one  Italian prune, in cherries, six Bing  and two Royal Ann; in (early .pears  two   Bartletts;   in   October   pears  six Sheldon.".   This last variety has  always done  weil for jns and has  ways   found   a  .ready   marlqet   at  guuJ pr.ces.  I give my permanent ��������� trees, such  as the Northern Spy, a- space thir  ty feet wide and thirty five feet in  lue lows; and set the ether varieties in tne rows seventeen iand a  half feet between the iS.pys. This  gives me thirty feet of-clear space  for railing strawberries and other  small fruits. I prefer the square  method in planting trees. The  young tiees should have a clean  cultivation. A man starting in on  a new place canno talways give  them this, in which case^ he should  cultivate a apace about three feet  around each tree, digging a good  foot deep in the 'early part of  Febraury and keeping the surface  hoed,dur.i.ng the spring and summer until about the last of July  A good muck of red clover is excellent for young trees where you  h.ve no. mu^h f.vT n man ire. This  should be ploughed under in 'September and h: rro^wed we'l ldownso  that it will rot for the coming  spring.  You can plant to advantage a-  bout seventy traes to the acre, and  for the first three o' .rfour years,  can grow straw.berries between the  rows. These should be kept back  from the trees about six feet on  each side so t^hat you will have  plenty of room; to drive/your sled  keepihgthem clean  A man is foolish who ..thinks  that after he has planted his trees  they will'look after themselves.  This h a mistake that c?u'C3S0ine  growers to 'become discouraged.  They get this feeling not because  good profits cannot be made in  fruit growing here, out because  ���������he prosp-ct of a lot of work die-  courages them.  Take the it ami of strawberries a-  !one.    An  acre   in   strawberries  in  a   good  year   will yield,  d'e.-ir  of  expenses, $400, and this  u  h   low  estimate.   Moreover, you can ri.ise  potatoes an dother vegetables Le-  fcween your  trees.   The total profit a   man can derive' from a    ten  or fifteen'.acre fruit farm! depends  very largely'upon the imian, ,but after the   farm is  well started  *..".s  profit ought to be several ,thous-  and dollars  a   ye-ar.   It is  necessary to say, though, that you cannot count imuch on  financial returns from  your fruit   trees  until,  they are isix or iseven years old,  and in the case of. Northern 'Spy^,  until they are eight or nine years  old.   But in the meantime a   good  living can be obtained from other  fru������ts   and   from   vegetables,      if  your ranch is located within fair-  y o.isy ie,ich of the large markets  n which  the supply for fruit End  vegetables  at 'good prices   'a  not  often equal to the demand.  As to the cost of starting as- a  fruit grower you must first take  the price of your land into considerate-.n. Good acreage around  Abbotsford, which is representative of  the best sections of     the  ������������������;.. i,.juu..n  THE POWER OF  ���������   'COMPOUND INTEREST.   o   Wo recommend the following j a  those o"i. our citizens, who durng  'these quarantine .days are in need  or something to occupy their time  Here is 'a simple* rule lor iin'.l-  ing the' number of years in which  a sum of imoney will double itself  at  compound   interest. Divide  09.3 by the rate ,per cent, and add  to   this, .35.   Thus   at   3   pet   cent,  we find' the- number of  years by  dividing 69.3 by 3, which yields 23.1  to which we add .35 years, making  me   23.45   years.  At 3 per cernt (simple interest  it takes 33 1-3 years for money to  doubleitsclf. And so you will iind  that compound interest has a  very great advantage over simple  i-niarust in doubling power, in  the ratio of one force 'co the other being for all ordinary rates of  interest as 10 to 7.  This power of compound interest  may be illustrated in another way  Three young men save $30 each a  year for   JO years.  A, being 'a very cautious youth  puts his money in 'a strong box  at home. At the end of 40 years  he has saved $2,000  13, places his money with a bank  wh osays he will allow him simple  interest at 3 per cent. Atf the end  of 10 years he has at his credit a  sum equal to $3,230.  C-deposits his money in the Post  Office Savings Bank at 3 ,pcr cent  compound interest, and afit the end  i 40 years ha has '$3,883 at hia  credit.  But  D   has  discovered      a    still  more   excellent' way.   He pays his  money  to   the Dominion  Government for the purchase of a .Canadian Annuity.   He is now aged 20  and the 'government says tu  him  that if he dies .during the 40 years  of '-.avlng his estate will (be as we'll  off as C's estate, for it will receive  back aft. that (he-has paid in with  3 per cent compound interest, -y.-d  if he survives to the' age of 60 he  will receive from the government  an income  of $500. 'as long as ,he  lives.  At 3 per cent. ,C's,$5^83 would if  he spent' a portion of his capital  each- year, 'give him $500 a year for  less than 9 years, and it 7') he  would find himself without n. penny and in de|bt if he had mo o'.her  means of support.
