TO  MAKE RHSGO!MMENI>ATlON  The monthly meeting"of the Mal-  squi-Sumas-Abbotsford Poultry Association * was held at the Bank of  Montreal Chambers on Friday, Feb.  10th. Owing to his continued sick-  new* the President was unal)lo to at-'  tend and tho chair was taken by  Mr. J. Is. Preston.  Unfortunatoly the speaker for the.  evening, Professor Lloyd of tiie University, was at the last minute detained through sickness. It Is hoped that his'attendance may be obtained at. the- next meeting.  A report on the moving pictures  and raffle held last month was given by the secretary, showing a satisfactory balance of about $2 5.00.  A committee was appointed- to  draw up a recommendation for the  revision of the-poultry classification  and" prize list at the local fall fair.  Much dissatisfaction has been expressed over "tiie poor display at the  last" fair, and it is hoped that the Agricultural Association will see their  way to carrying out tho recommendations that will be submitted to them,  both as regards the 'prize list land  accommodation .which is very inadequate.

The death occurred very suddenly,  early Thursday morning, of Mr. Alex.-  Ker a well known and honored resident of. Abbotsford.

Others r relatives  also survive in his home in Scotland.  The funeral which will be conducted  by the local Order of Oddfellows, oe  which Mr. Ker was a member, will  be held from the Masonic Hull on  Saturday, February 18th. at 2 p. m  ' The community extend hearueu  sympathy to Mrs. Ker and Peter in  their sorrow.  .

There wore present delegates from  New Westminster, Hammond, Lang-  loy Priiii-o and Abbotsford. Letters  wore read from tho other invited  boards, Chilliwack, 1-lanoy, Ladner,  Cloverdale,- Coquitlam, endorsing the  movement.  Although the number present. \va.  small it was decided to proceed with  organization. Mr? N. Hill, manager  of the local branch of the .Royal'  Bank of Canada and President of the  Abbots, ord and District Board of  Trade was unanimously elected President of the Association! Boards of  Trade of.the Eraser Valley and Mr.  Keary of New-Westminster,, secretary. '  The executive or council of the  Associated Boards is to.be composeu  of the Presidents of the member  boards and a committee was formed  to draft the necessary.'.constitution*  and by-laws. , -  The object of the plan is to associate the.above Boards (or member  Boards) in working for the .benefit  and good of all points in the Fraser  Valley and it brings the aims and.ob  jects of the said Boards 'into' close,  harmony and to add. strength to any  united movement in the interest ot  the Fraser Valley it may be deemed  w'se or expedient to set.forward.

Eslin" Presents Interesting l)n(a for Taxpayers of British  Columbia���������Shows When: Provincial Revenue Goes and Why Taxes  are Being Increased.  ' As your representative at Victori.;  , I submit for the information of the  electors and residents of Kosshind  Riding, a report on the' -recent session of the Provincial Legislature.  The duty of the Opposition is to criticize. Not in a petty or carping manner, but for the purpose of bringi ^  to' public attention such policies and  expenditures-as may seem unwi.o.  unnecessary, unbusinesslike or extravagant. Were it not so, a government could carry on without inter-'  ruption and without protest regardless of the. welfare of the people. Aiy  criticism'which' influences' public  opinion to call a halt on ill-advised  expenditures, or ill-advised legislation, must be accepted as constructive criticism. You pay taxes and  the more money the administration-  spends, the more you have to pay.  The recent session was called three  months ahead of the usual time, ostensibly to provide aid for municipalities. Tins aid, as forecasted by  the Government members in reply to  the Lieutenant-Governor's speech,  was to have been raised by a one per  cent, income tax,, from which there  should be no exemptions,"so that the  girl in the telephone ofice, store or  dining room, as well as the general  wage earner, was to pay the Government one per' cent.'.on their pay  cheques. ��������� This met with such strong  protest, that, even the Government  followers refused to .support it, so  the policy was changed. Then came  a new proposal to create a distinct  personal property tax and give it to  the municipalities,.which the Government would take the " income, tax.  This too met with vigorous protest  and the policy was again changed  Avhen the Government .decided to increase the tax oh. automobiles by  fifty per cent., and.give.the municipalities one-third of the revenue as  well as five per'cent, on race 'track  bets'. It was not popular, but the  Government had to do something and  ill is,' together with a .share of profit  from;the'-sale of licfuor, was all it  could offer. '._ "',.,���������'  Aside from the': taxation problem  and the borrowing: of . another five  millions" against which the Opposition voted unanimously, the major  portion of- the session was' occupied  by the Government ,in defending ii_  ministers and-in long,heated.debates  against the appointment of select* committees to investigate liquor.,.charges  and the .illicit sale .'of beaver pelts' by  the chairman of the.-Game Board.  The latter subject has been detailed  ��������� in the press from day to day.  Blocking Investigations  At the session of the .',Royal Commission 'in Victoria Mir. Bowser, leader of the Opposition,, gave evidence  that he had information that Dr. Baker had'^been guilty'of misappropriation of public funds, in connection  with the moving picture department.  Counsel .for Dr. Baker contended ,l.hat  the scop'e of the inquiry did not include investigation qf anything but  beaver pelt charges, and Mr. Bowser  appealed to the Premier'to_ widen th'..  scope of the inquiry. Mr. Oliver refused this application unless he first  be handed the source and nature,.of  the charges, although the resolution  passed by the House, and seconded by  the Premier himself, included investigation of the alleged ' malpractises  "carried' on by Dr. Baker, as director,  of the B. C. Pictorial and Educational Picture Service." ' .  In a -second letter Mr. Bowser-  said: "iS'urely, when the leader of the  Opposition states on oath, before a  public enquiry, that he is prepared to  produce evidence to prove a misappropriation of government funds by  a salaried civil servant, one would  naturally tkink that the Premier of  the Province would he only too  anxious to b.oaden the enquiry, so as  to fully investigate such a .charge.  And when the P.emier of th6 Province refuses to do so, he leaves himself open to the suggestion that he  intends to stifle all such investigations', a responsibility which you must  assume if you do not accede to my  request."  The Premier's attitude on this matter, his two hour speech against a  select committee to investigate the  liquor charges, another two hour  speech against a select committee in  Dr. Baker's case, and persistent re-  fusaj to furnish the House with av.  inventory and explanation concerning  the whereabouts'of nearly a million  dollars worth of equipment taken over from. Foley & Stewart by the P. G.  E. Settlement Act, warrants the  people in losing faith in the political  traditions which have impressed upon them the oft repeated assurance of  the Premier's honesty of purpose.  AvfA by'ithe same token, I contend  that a member, who by his vote, assists any government in blocking' investigations* and : withholding from  the people the information to   which  late  ap-  by  they are entitled, is more concerned  about the loss of his indemnity  through possible political defeat,  than he is concerned about the v. el-  fare of the public.  The   Prospector's    Finish  One of the last acts of the  Conservative Government was to  propriate the sum of $200,000  the act of 10 16, specifically in build  roads and trails to mines and prospects. It was a concrete admission  that the prospector is the foundation  and backbone in the development of  the great mineral resources of British Columbia. The present Government practically, as well as theoretically, has relegated the prospector to  lhe past, and in his stead has entrusted the development���������or rather laci.  of development���������<o the "resident engineer."  Practically every mining property  of note today, including placer and  lode mines (and they have yielded in  tho aggregate nearly half a billion of  dollars) are monuments to the ever  hopeful and zealous prospector, who  uncovered them, before the advent  of the "resident" engineer. What  more picturesque scene than was  common in the days of real prospecting, when in front of every ' little  general store we saw a string of pack  horses loaded with bellows, powder,  steel and provisions ready for the  hills. Now. a pack train' would be  an object of curiosity, and the community would turn out to see how  thep acker made the squaw hitch or  the diamond  hitch.  No sooner had the present, government assumed office than it passed  an act for its phantom policy of os-  labli. hi.ng public sampling ' works,  customes smelter, refineries'and provisions in aid of treating and buying  of ores. Every prospector was to have  a portable smelter of his "own. Of-  course, this was merely .visionary  aid to prospectors. So visionary, that'  the act. carried with it no appropriation,-and there has not been any  made since. Then came the Mineral  Survey Act of 1917, which placed the-  control of the development of prospects in, the hands of six "resident  engineers'." Up to date these six  engineers and their departments have  cost the public the sum of $567,000  while the-only-outstanding result of  their work is the spending of some  $5 0,0.00.on the Snowstorm Group-in  Highland Valley, the property of Steward Henderson,- a good Liberal ex-  member of the Legislature. As 'to  the-trails'-these engineers have built  or recommended to be built, they are  few and far between, as every, prospector knows. And judging by the reports of these resident engineers, as  published by the Department of  Mines, their .-advice covers i:o suggestion of real benefit to mining, and is  of little value. With'possibly.one exception, the information they contain could be compiled from, the  weekly newspapers or from, the returns, of Mining Recorders or Government Agents. Careful reading of the  19-20 report will make it difficult-to  find the: recommendation, for the,  building :of a-single trail. They do  say they have had numerous appli.e.  ations for trails and assistance, and  that is to be expected,- -but " there is"  little note of anything been done toward such assistance. They advance  no practical suggestions ..regarding  any property or prospect'.'/ With Uip  one big question on which .the'future  of the development of low.grade ores  depends, (that of concentration ana  flotation) they say absolutely nothing. Although the Velvet Mine has  been operated by old time miners  since May, 1920, it was not visited by  a government engineer until late in  1921, and then because it was drawn  to the minister's attention by the lo-f  cal member. While Rossland is the  heart of the mines of the Kootenay  'the report cites the concreting of the  Centre mines, and says production-  has been curtailed because of the  low price of copper, although it has  always been admitted that this was a  gold 'Camp.  The LeRoe No. 2, receives mention  by one line and three words, and the  Velvet one line and one word, while  the information is conveyed that the  surface plant of the White Bear was  destroyed by fire. And yet these engineers cost the people over $100,000  per year or $507,000 for the five  years they have been in office. It can  not be denied that there was more  real progress in mineral development  by practical prospectors before the  advent of the "resident engineer."  Addressing a 'mooting at Kerris-  dale tho other .night,, Hon. W. .1-. Bowser, leader of the Opposition in the  {Provincial House'gave some idea o<  I a constructive, policy he is prepared  to carry but should,the chance be,given him.  "The people of the province, in  my opinion, should take more interest in our public affairs, and become-  better informed on conditions as they  are," he said in his opening remarks.  Dealing with the .subject"of retrenchment, which he stated war. one  of the cries-upon which the Liberals  were returned to power five years  ago he declared that the salaries vote  for this vote was a million and a half  dollars more than it was when the  Conservatives left office,' while the  public debt of the province had been  increased by thirty-five millions, and  salaries' in connection with the liquor  administration amounted to nearly  half a million dollars a .year.  "Do you call that retrenchment?"  he asked.' "Extravagance, inexperience and incompetency have told t .e  tale," he added.  "The very best talent is necessary  to grapple with the financial conditions of the country," he continued.  "British Columbia is in a bad way.  We should all join, irrespective of  party, to try to get a better government."  If he were elected to' office, ho  said, he would surround himself  with a well-balanced cabinet. First,  he would retrench. He .would act towards the business of the country the  same as the manager .of a large  wholesale house would do. He  would cut oitt all the political dead-  woods, and there were many in the  different departments, he- added. He  would try to reduce taxation,, and it  the'salaries were cut down one million it would go a long way to lessen  taxation. <; ,  "I would restore the credit of the  country by. showing' business"peoplo  and the. banks that they were getting  an honest and businesslike administration.  ' "The Pacific Great Eastern Railway, he continued, should not only be  connected up with Prince George, but  it should be extended-into the Peace  River country, which -would be the  means of bringing the grain through  its natural port of Vancouver, and  would also secure the growing trade  of Alberta. He would also introduce  a constructive policy, and would en-  j courage the developement of the na-  Itural'resources of the country."  WHOLESOME   FODD  MEANS  A HEALTHY PEOPLE  IN  CI TV   LIMITS  A Chicago man, while in New  York, was requested by a long-distance telephone operator to deposit  24 cents for telephoning to a certain   place.     He   objected.  "Why, in Chicago," he said, "we  can telephone to h-  for a quarter."  "Yes, but that's in your city limits," was the girl's answer.  There is much in the report of the  Veterinary, Director  General  for the  year 1920"-21 that must be very gratifying to Canadian -readers.    From It  we learn   that Canadian    Live stock  continues  to  maintain  its     enviable  reputation as-among   the    healthiest  in the world, that none of tiie"   great  plagues, such as'   rinder-pest,    foot-  and-mouth disease, and    contagiou*  pleuro-pneumonia' has been    allowed  to-enter-the'country; that hog   cholera and glanders have been so effectively'dealt with that losses have become-.comparatively    trifling,      and  .that mange .has-been practically eradicated from the "great'  range country in Alberta.    The last"mentioned  was a particularly' heavy task, as can"  easily be understood when it is- stated'that 2.082 townships,,   approximately .74,952    miles; a.   territory    as  large as Scotland, had to be covered.  Cattle cciild stray for hundreds    of  miles.    Restrictions and dipping regulations had to be imposed    and happily were readily complied    with    by  cattlemen,  with one . lone exception,  when the police had to be called upon'.    Dipping vats were built so    that  no cattle would    have to be 'driven  more than twelve miles, to be treated, and every contingency was    provided for.      Commencing June     24  197,972 head were    dipped for    the  first time, and oh July 2 and following days, 197,914 were dipped for the  second time.

Those"'four years are vitally.  important in moulding the girl or  boy into a potentially useful citizen,  or into an incubus upon society.  Here the parent's responsibility is  paramount and unshrinkable. Happy  is the child who is blessed by fortune  with good parents. His own destiny  is linked up with theirs in three important ways:  .1' By heredity. The sins of the;  fathers (and also their virtues') are  visited upon their children.  By economic and social environment.  By personal influence find    active  control.  The first factor is a question of  vital national importance, and must  in time be dealt with by the state. Eu  genics will ultimately find its way into'the curriculum of political economy. Not always will a nation's  children be inflicted with the parental curse of vicious parents.  The second factor, that of eoonom  ic and social environment, is dependent for its solution upon the evolution of our denvocrasy into an idoal  state wherein there are no pauper..  and-no profiteers.  The third factor, that of personal  influence and active control on parti  of the parent, is a question confront- j  ing every parent now. It is a practical I  auestion, requiring' a    practical    an-;  swer, J  inuw, from my long experience in ,  dealing with children of school age, j  1 have arrived at certain conclusions  regarding the out-ofirschool education of these children. What I an.  going to say in criticism of home  training of children must be not be  taken as' applying to any one personally. 1 have only one object in making those criticisms, to .stimulate un  interest in the home education which  may gradually, spread and form a basis for constructive work in' bettering conditions in this'particular field.  'If I had the parents here who are  most in need of admonition and instruction along those lines and the  very fact that you are here is an evidence to me that you already possess  a vital interest in (he welfare of  your children and therefore do not  neeel admonition), I would say to  them:  Be kind lo I hem. Not only love  them but prove to tiie.ni that you  love them. The child, the. normal  child, thirsts for. mother love. It is  vital to his emotional development.  Let your relations to your child be  so simple that you are his haven of.  rest, his castle of refuge, his sanctuary. In times of trouble he fur.;-;  to yon, as nature und nature's God  intended he should, and he knows lie  will meet with sympathy, love, and  healing. What a terrible thing it  is lo think that some children are repulsed by their own parents, if that  child grows iu> to he a good citizen,  a worthy member-, of society, it will  be in consequence of inherent, goodness. He sots out on life's journey  with a terrible handicap.  Let all your home surrounding.,  and family intercourses be cheerful  and happy. Avoid domestic bickerings,    het horqe bo a place of, peace  ! never learn the language of liate and  'and love, where your children would  iscorn, but that of joy, contentment  ��������� and appreciation..  j     Make 'home    attractive  in    other  .ways. Cleanliness and    neatness    are  conducive to contentment as well as  I to good health and they    go far    in  !their general effect 'on    the    child  I mind." In these days and under   ,the  most adverse conditions, much can 1/e  done to decorate or' adorn  the home  with a few bright   pictures, a    little  needlework, or art'of some kind. But  even in a house stripped to the barest  essentials,    love,:   cheerfulness    and  contentment may prevail.  Self-activity and) self-exnression  are as natural an essential to children as frisking, is to lambs or singing is to birds. ' The home should  provide for the; boy or girl, ample  means for the outlet and exercise of  their natural activities of body and  'mind. 'Happy isi.the boy with a tow  simple lools and' a corner in the  woodshed where,he can set up a-.box  as a bench where he can plane, saw  and hammer to-his heart's ..content.  But that is not enough. His activities should on occasion'be directed  jiml stimulated/ A boy loves to  make something for his mother, a.  broad-board, a-knife box, a shelf, a  'rolling-pin, or'more ambitious things  such as umbrella stands, card tables,  or cabinets. 1 am thinking now, of  course, not only ot the little boy, but  the big boy. The principle involved  holds good from time they can toddle to the time 'they leave the paiv  ent's home. Even the .child of four  or five can do some little thing for-  mother, or even for daddy, if it  is" only to bring him his slippers, oi  find him his pipe.  Self-expression is also vital to  healthy growth. You have possibly  all' met with parents w.ho repressed  this natural desire and instinct . in  their children. Johnny is bubbling  over with , information, or seething  with questions'... His 'mother tells  him to shut up, or not to bother, her.  And Johnny does shut, up, or gets his  ears'boxed. What happens?'Either  Johnny loses interest in things he  can't talk about, and looks for interest in other and perhaps worse channels, or he tak.es his confidences to  3SE  ABBOTSFORD  SUPERIOR  SCHOOL RESULTS  I.

Institutes Planning  For Fall Fairs  It seems extraordinary early to bo  talking about exhibits for the New  Westminster Provincial (Exhibition,  but, then, time has such an uncanny  way of creeping up unawares and  leaving that plan for attractively  homecured meats, or that pretty  piece of fcmcy-wprk, only plan.y  when with a little more forethought  they might have become pleasant re  alities.    The Fall Fairs wait for   no  woman.  All of the women of the Institutes  of the Lower Mainland have been invited to get up a'district or Valley exhibit, for the big provincial event, to  embrace anything that the members  have been able to make or to do in  their homes during the year. Space  has been set aside by the Exhibition  authorities with this end in view and-  it is now up to the women of the Valley to do their share and provide a  handsome display.  Women of the Fraser Valley Institutes are evidently planning to do  their part well and a committee has  been formed to look after things  and provide the members with information. The committee in charge  includes Mrs. Davies of Chilliwack,  Mrs. Osborne of Mission City, Mrs.  Bruce of Central Park, Mrs. Croft of  Cloverdale and Miss C. G. Cruick-  shank of Matsqui.  This committee is agreed that a  fines how of exhibits must be worked up among the members of the  Mainland Institutes. These are the  classes of exhibits: Preserved fruits  and vegetables; dairy work, including goat products; poultry products;  bee products; cured meats; home-  cooking; plain and fancy needlework, including weaving and rug-  making; horticulture; home-cured  furs; basket-making; home-made  labor-saving devices; home-made  soap, and fine arts, including photography and wood craving.  Another interesting exhibit will  be a display of the community work  done by the women.of the institutes.  A great, many'Institutes have had a  hand in building their own community hall and photographs of these are  to be shown.  Everything that is an evidence of  woman's -desire to aid community life  is regarded as the right kind of exhibit for the Exhibition,���������Columbian.  ffll__U_k_l__l__Ull____���������  ���������sssswssimssiunlX^SiSKSSWSK!^^^  3_������'"Js_>tt���������*��������� *���������_> .i*VttJ*-"w������r_>^ir-' _'i_t".!������&. v*"TJ',,**tu_-*,i-*-'
