Seemingly tho Mission boys havo lost all  interest for any athletic contests, and  no team was available. So not to disappoint the good sports from Abbotsford a hurry .up call"lwas sent to tho  Glen Valley team to come and defend  the trophy. The Glon boys responded  nobly to the call, with the result-that  an exceedingly good game was witnessed by the fans who turned out. to"  see it.  Notwithstanding the,fact that Abbotsford won''by a score of 3 to 0, the  Glen boys' deserve credit for the good  exhibition they put up, especially  against a more experienced  team.      i  The teams were as follows:  .Glen  Valley���������P.

On Friday evening* last our football  boys entertained their .friends at a  fancy dress ball and all who attended  (nad there must have been- over two  hundred)- agreed in saying it ���������was one  of the most,enjoyable evenings"spent  in our bright town.;- 4>, -;;..  . The,. Masonic Hall was. artistically  decorated, for the occasion ..with,,,red;  arid white bunting-and'.Chinese- lanterns and the. lighting, with its rosy  tinge,- gave a most pleasant and striking effect as one entered the. hall.  The floor was in excellent condition  while the music, supplied by the Everett orchestra from Bellingham, was  ideal.  Mr. Boulter officiated as master of  ceremonies and rendered excellent assistance.  The refreshments, served by the  lady friends of the club, were, various  anil very tasty, going far towards  heighting the enjoyment of the evening's pleasure.  All credit is due the energetic committee consisting of Messrs. W. A.  Ferguson, G. H. Liddell, G. E. Hayes,  A. -J. Heenderson, B. J. Gurneay and  J. Heath,- who had charge of the arrangements.  The committee desire to personally  thank all the ladiese who so kindly  provided cake and the gentlemen who  assisted in moving the piano and rendering other help.

Our Shibboleth���������Neither for nor agin the Government.  Friday, February 27, 1913  The question of good, roads is agitating more than the local  people at the present time. It is a question that many bright minds  throughout the land, both in Canada and the United States are con-  . sidering at the present time. The Americans are considering the  proposition of making it a national question, many of the legislators  believing that the building of a system of national biglnvays is of  more economic importance than any other public work���������more vital  than the question of a large navy, more useful than any river or harbor improvements, more necessary than the Panama Canal. For  biglnvays are built and owned by tlie people and are free to all the  people.  It is universal experience that one mile of good road breeds another mile. Put a State-wide, good road, down anywhere in this  country, and in ten years there will be dozens of good roads reaching it from all parts of the State. Put down a system of National  Highways, built and maintained by the National Government, and  the various State Legislatures and County officials would soon sec  the advantage of connecting all parts of the States with those Na-  .   tional roads. ^  There are two.million miles of roads in the United States. The  fifty thousand miles of highway shown on the map is but a fraction  over two per cent, of this mileage. But improve these fifty thousand miles into good roads, and keep them good roads by proper  . maintenance, and fifty thousand miles more would grow almost over  night, and then another fifty thousand and another and another,  until our great country, with its huge territory, would be crossed  and recrossed with good roads, as France is today.  France has National Highways. These are immense trunk line  roads, great arteries of commerce, and from these the smaller roads  are built by the provinces of France, just as the States and Counties  of our States will build feeders and connections to a National System of Highways.  If France���������about the size of Texas���������needs National Highways,  how, much more do we, with our huge territory, require them?  Many idealists and dreamers have proposed National Road Systems for this country. Usually the system has been worked out  with a map, a ruler, a pencil, and sublime faith. Mountains, lakes,  rivers and forests form no obstacles to. such visionary road systems.  The National Highways System, as shown on this map, is the product of no such dream. The highways indicated are either the best  present roads from point to point, or what are, in the judgment of a  trained and experienced corps of road engineers, the best possible  and prcaticable roads from point to point.  But these engineers, who worked months on hundreds of large  scale maps, aud with the aid of a nation-wide correspondence of  more than fifteen thousand personal letters- asking information and  advice know this system is only tentative. It is but a suggestion. It  is not intended to.be anything, else. There must be a beginning to  everything, - and little headway can be made without some such  careful plan from which to start.  It is designed to connect all the States of the United States,  touch every city, every State Capital, by a system, of, roads. The  roads are to be as straight as the contour of tlie country will permit, without an impossible expenditure of money to tunnel mountains or bridge lakes and rivers. There are three classes of Highways, Main, Trunk and Link. The Main Highways are six in number, Northern, Central, Southern, Atlantic, Mississippi and Pacific.  These form the starting point and the basis-of the system.* Next  come thirteen great Trunk lines, feeding and crossing the Main  LTighwaj's, and connecting the various sections of the country'in  more intimate relations. Finally come forty Link Highways-  smaller National Highways���������making a gridiron of the whole system.  From the above it will appeal- that there ismore to good roads  than any municipality of the Fraser Valley can. solve, and according to modern, ideas of road building no province in the Dominion  is doing its people justice if it permits the small municipalities of  its domain to attempt to solve this problem without ample assistance.  THE    MARKET  Ninety thousand dollars a year is  taken out of Kamloops for lire insurance. In 1-311, $2500 was paid for lire  insurance-losses and in 1912, $28G.  Shipments of rails for the Canadian  Northern Pacific Railway are now en  route by rail and overland. Thirteen  thousand tons of steel are coming  around the Horn from Sydney, N. S., to  be delivered at the Port Mann end of  tlie new line, and 91 car loads have  ben routed from the Atlantic coast  over lhe C. P. R. to Kamloops.  While George Isherwood and Charles  Preston' were crossing Mabel Lake  with mail for Hope, Isherwood was  drowned. .       .  The Canadian Northern Railway  have just signed contracts with builders of rolling stock all'over Canada  for seven million dollars' worth of railway equipment to be delivered during  1913. This will include 130 locomotives,  70 passenger coaches, 300 box cars; and  variety of other cars. Equipment bonds  'will oe issued for the purpose.

SOMEBODY LOVES "CENTTAL"  Here is something that will interest  "Central," the divinity at whose shrine,  we" impatiently worship ever so many  times a day: "The newest Canadian  Countess, the Countess of Ashburn-  ham, was formerly Miss Marie Ander-  .son, a telephone operator of Frederic-  ton, N. B., who ensared the presumably ready affections of the Hon.  Thomas Ashburnham with the quality  of her voice heard over the 'phone.  Like a lordlier "Bottom'' ho made it  his business to "see the noise he  heard,'' and the attraction was, apparently, not diminished, for marriage  ensued. By the death of his brother  recently, Major Ashburnham became  the sixth Earl of Ashburnham and possessor of an estate yielding an income  of some  fifty  thousand  dollars. The  new earl and his wife prepared at once  to sail for England. The countess is  an excellent horsewoman."
