' OVERLAND AGENCY AND "SERVICE  STATION  READ OF ALBERTA  FAHMERS  STRONG   FOR CO-OPERATION  "Co-operation is the true law of  lire," FI. W. Wood, head of.the United  Farmers of Alberta, told the lassem-  blcd farmers delegates at Victoria.  "Competition is the false law The  race has lived by competition but tho  social structure will he destroyed if  co-operation is not substituted for  competition"-!*������ declared. :and added:  '"All co-operation up to now has  boon a combination forced by competition, to withstand competition.  That was the first co-operative effort  and .is aptly illustrated by Germany,  biggest5 and strongest, co-operation  in the world up to, 1914; whicjir was  formed' for''the purpose of destroy  the other nations of Uie world.  ^- '  * "The Allied nations were forced info co-operation to save their lives,  and as they formed the greater cooperative body, Germany was destroyed. Co-operation for co-operative  ends is the new ideal and is the-true  spirit of democracy."  Mr. Wood is tall, with a command-  . ing presence. He speaks with deliberation and knows how to drive a point  home, the way the .average man can  most assimilate it. He spoke extemporaneously on co-operation and received  a  flattering reception.  Group operation instead o f individ  ual effort spelled success. When the  day came that the 16,000 farmers  cf British Columbia went to the  polls as one man, just so soon would  they become the -economic force that  nature designed them to be. Full  co-operation would not come to ths-m,  in tho next twenty or the next fifty  years, but thoy could be ten times as  strong in two or three years as they  were today bscause now their.,strength  was negligible.  "Cooperation,' Mr. Wood concluded, "is the cement which moulds  the individual into the groups just  the same as the material used by the  builder when he takes a multitude  of stcnes, each perfect in itself, and  creates a building that "is beauteous  to the eye and full accomplishes the  design of the architect."  B. O. FORTUNATE IN FAKMERS  ���������.*������ V"-*h ">���������*#���������.  British Columbia is singularly fortunate in its farmers, because these  are men and women of diversified  farm interests, covering the whole  range of rural avocations suitable to  the various climates and soils of this  wonderful province. These "various  opportunities for the enjoyment of  the highest skill and the most intensive and extensive operations have attracted to British Columbia a"~'body  of farmers of exceptional intelligence  and individuality. These are not.  men likely to be effaced and controlled by neighboring organizations of  larger membership,. representing - a  more narrow range of interests.  If-tli-avBritlsii--- ^Colum-biaT^fa'rnriers-  increase and consolidate their organization they will do it to some effective puip.. se for    the    advantage    of  their order.    If they  chooso to em-  group in politics it will not  ba altogUKr Ontario or prairie politics, but  will reflect their own point  of view. Whatever they do in politics  or out of politics is not likely to bt  dangerous  to the political health of  the country.    We should not expect  them to place themselves as a class  in conflict with the other elements ot  th;   comnnrity in which    they    live.  This is a province where all men !:ave  worked together -and the farmers are  closely  related in all  kinds of  ways  with the rest of the population���������Vancouver Province.

Mission played a good game  but Abbotsford, with a much lighter  team, played faster football and^came  through with the long' end'- of the  score. Mission- scored first, but Abbotsford soon equalized, a pretty  run down and quick passing between  Brown and Manny Walters resulted  in the latter netting a dandy goal.

LUMBER SHUT OUT  British Columbia lumbermen are  centering-their attention on activities going on in Washington, D. C,  which call for an investigation into  th-i cost of lumber in regions bordering, on Oregon and Washington. According to local men this is regarded  as an attempt on the part of sawmill  operators in these states to have tho  government place a tax on B.C. lumber. It is known that some of these  mills are feeling the pinch of competition, the operators of which do  not take kindly to the immense trade  being established by British Columbia firms who.are not only getting  American lumber prices for their-  products but arc also securing the  American rate of exchange which at  Sam Hughes wants the Ottawa  House to say 'That in the opinion of  this house the best interests of Canada and its peoples would be served,  and the principles of responsible government would be maintained, by a  system of political patronage wherein appointments to and promotions in  both the outside and inside civil service would be brought under the  specific consideration and recommendation of members of parliament or  the defeated candidates of the party  in power always having due regard  for the stability of the service, the  promotion of deserving officers, and  the proper conduct of tho business of the service, and  that the Civil Service Act be amended in conformity therewith ,and also  to place the civil service commission  in an unequivocal position consistent  with its dignity and importance in a  new sphere of action."  Mission City Basket Ball boys and  girls too Abbotsford by storm last  night, carrying away the banner in  both the games. ' We forgot the  score but Abbotsford showed that all  are good sports even in a losing game  Mission has some good players, but  "Doughy" Spring says he will make  just as good out of the Abbotsford  players, only they must practice good  and hard.  After the games the the Mission  players were made the guests of the  evening to a small banquet to whicii  all did justice.  Abbotsford goes to Mission City on  Friday next and hope to increase  their score so it wont look so one sided.

C.  gKpi'COUGHS  OUR VICTORIA LETTER  Victoria,   Feb.  21���������This week lias  <ceh an cm] to l.lic Legislative forcn-  ie  debauch- which,  under  the guise  >f the debate ou the Address in roply  to the speech from the Throne,   ,-hau  broken all  records in point of time  devoted to it.    Three w.eeks of talk  to  the exclusion  practically, of auy  ! real business.    At least it has served  : the purpose of permitting the government, time to g?t along with the prf-  jparation of its legislation, now con-  ' siderably behind its schedule. While  tangible results, insofar as the well-  being of the province  is concerned,  are not discernible, it is probable that  from now on some real business will  be done.  Undoubtedly the feature of the  week's happenings in the House has  been the coming into action of the  "big guns", the leaders of the government and the Conservative opposition. Comment in the corridors indicated that the honors went to the  energetic and keen-witted opposition  leader whose criticism of the administration was forceful and logical  \vhil6 unmarked -by-..acrimony. Tus  Premier, too, displayed hio- wonted a-  bility to defend his position and he  showed an unusual amount of good  humor, his erstwhile political rancour being less marked. But it cannot be said there was any-display of  originality in his defence." To Bowser's slashing criticismn of the govern  merit's failure to redeem its pre election pledges, of its lack of any initiative other than in taxing to the  utmost limit the people of the province the while its 'expenditures arc  steadily mounting, the Premier retorted, with a re-hash of the old arguments that whatever defects are ap-  pareut in the present administration  of affairs, they are all due to the actions of the previous governai .lit.  But not all, cither. Tlie Premier  bad discovered there is something  wrong witb the people of the Province. They are, he said, averse to  hard work which they consider beneath them.     He advised them to doff  OTHER TABLETS NOT  ASPIRIN AT ALL  A  Only Tablets with "Baycf Cross  are Genuine Aspirin  M  the broad-clotli and dpu the o\*er;i!U.

The real fact  was, Mr. Bowser stated, that outlajs  for that year aggregated $12,na,0'K������  and receipts IO.S87.000 leaving an  ������������������.dual deficit of H.i.Si.OOO.

"Not only  has it placed  all  farm  products   within   easy   reach   of   the  city   markets,     ft   has   also   put   the  farm  family intouch with centres of  -.ocial activity .and progress. The auto  enables  the  farmer    to    accomplish  greater production  in   less  timo and  ,vith  less effect;    It enables him    to  .urn over his products quickly and to  oetter   advantage.    Therefore   it   affords  him  the enjoyment of greater  profits.     His trips to.town are more  frequent because, mora convenient. He  has  more cpoprtunity  to  grow  familiar  with   modern improvements  re-  ���������nr.esent'?.d by city life and with interesting things and people to be found  there.     His outlook is not limited to  his acres.    The effect of  this is  reflected in his home.    Living comforts  an d conveniences and even luxuries  heretofore associated only with towns  are   becoming  commonplaces   of 'the  moclorn farm house.'        Not only do  these things make life more pleasant  for the farmer himself they make, his  home  more attractive  for  others  to  visit.    Here again    the    automobile  does its part by putting'farmers with  in easy reach of their'neighbors ana  interesting  friends  in  the  cities.   At  work or at leisure the farmer who is  equipped   with   motor   transportation  is fully abreat of the times. More  and mors people have taken to farming as the advantages of the automobile have been realized. The effect has benefitted all who depend on  the farm for supplies."  These fine days put one in notion thai the  Garden needs attention - again. Some  people will plant seeds early. -Our seeds  are particularly adapted to early sowing.  GIVE US A CALL.
