Straiton,  Elmer Austin and Louis Munroe by  acclamation.  Ward I. is the only ward in- which  a contest will take place.  It is wonderful ,how dependent the  residents' of the Valley and also  those of the whole of ������he lower Fraser Valley contiguous to the B. C.  Electric Railway, are on the electrical energy of that company. The interruption to the light and power  former' blew out at Cloverdale sub-  servise' Friday night, when a trans  station, brought this - much in .evidence, an'ds nearly , everyone wa  robught tos a standstill for the want  of electric light. The Interruption  to the service occurred about six  o'clock, shortly after the last" outgoing tram to New Westminster h-ad  left this terminal, and about half an  hour before the. arrival of the 6:.20  tram These with' other passengers  and freight trains on the line between Chilliwack and Cloverdale,  were stalled six hours awaiting re-  painrs  to  the  blow-out.  Huntingdon and Abbotsford also  were in ..total darkness, even' after  the power was turned on so that the  tram could carry the numerous wait  ing passengers it was some hours be  fore the lights in these places were  turned on. One consolation is that  it is a'very rare occasion when'an  accident, of this kind happens to the  B. C.  Electric Company.  (From Eraser Valley Record)  Our new"'.Linotype, the latest  modol manufactured, was received  on Thursday-.df this week' from San  Francisco, and was -erected that afternoon and the next morning by  ���������Mr. J. Lang'ei the representative of  the Canadian Linotype,- Ltd.. Friday  afternoon ;the first slugs were cast,  Mr. Lange.Vsetting in a couple ��������� of  hours' theV matter required for this  week's issue.  .The Linotype impresses one who  sees  it  in'-operation-for   the     first  .time, as being little less than human.  Instead   of   handling   the   type,"  the  Linotype  sets  "matrices,"  these being assembled; through the operation  of  the  keyboard,   similar',   to     our  former   .typesetting    machine.!,'    the'  matrices  are   "spaced  out"   by  the  machine,   and  passed -alon^  to  the  casting box where .a .slug, or bar of  metal having the  letters- raised  on  one edge is then cast from  molten  metal, ��������� trimmed and dropped into a  galley, while a hand of the machine  reaches over, picks up the matrices  and carries them to the distributing  .apparatus;''  Th^-^yjje- is~thejv. ready,  to run through the press and thus  print on the paper.   '       ���������'     "    ���������  vl; tin-installing a Linotype ;the editor  ���������has,,,in mind a better and more up-  ���������to-'date weekly paper  ,and  will endeavor -to "make it one of the best  weekly. papers in- any town  of the  size'of this one in the province of  British  Columbia.     No .other  small  incorporated   town   in  the   province  can  boast .of  a  Linotype���������and,, few  of 'the young cities.    .   ���������  CHANGE   IN  TIME  This.,office is now capable of publishing a daily.-paper; and when Industrial Mission lands its prospective factories, and the population of  Mission City demands it, with addition' to the staff, we expect to be  right on the job.

An official statement by Interur-  ban Manager Allan Purvis, - states  that owing to the falling off in traffic in the Chilliwack branch, two  trains will be ;taken off during 'the  winter months giving a service of  three trains each way per day in addition-to the milk and express train  ��������� The new time table will take effect on, Thursday January- 8, the  schedule having- been arranged so  that the change will not riiaterial-  ly affect the traffic.

Purvis' points out that . this  service though so reduced, is still  'a better than that one given on the  branch last year at this time There  were three trains then, but no milk  train, the milk being handled on.the  passenger trains to the delay.of the  passenger traffic. ' "   ,  AGRICULTURAL   MEETING  DIED   SUDDENLY  Mr. and Mrs. Blair were guests of  friends in Mt. Lehman this week.  A brief despatch was received in  Huntingdon on Tuesday last stating  that Mrs. J. F. Boulter had died at  the home of her parents, very suddenly, in Opal, Wyoming.  . The deceased, lady was the wife  of Mr. J. F. Boulter, who was formerly C. P. R. agent at Huntingdon  and her sudden demuo came as a  shock to her many friends in this  vicinity.  On Monday, January 19th," a meet  ing of the directors and members of  "the Abbotsford-Sumas Agricultural  Aassociation will be "held in the Masonic Hall; Abbotsford, at 8 p. m.,  sharp, and'all members are urgently  requested-ito make it a point to attend Business of importance will be  transacted, including the~election of  officers for the ��������� ensuing year. It is  the intention of the Association to  put" forth every effort this year to  provide an exhibition that will be a  credit to the district, and show the  outside public just what can be  grown in this vicinity. Do not forget the date and the time and the  place.  Several years the association held  a successful fair and everyone was  more than pleased with the result*.  Tupper McPhee and Leslie Trethe-  way are attending high school at  New Westminster.  RETURNED HOME  Mr.. M. E. Scotsvold and bride  returned home on Tuesday last and  were warmly welcomed at the station by their numerous friends, who  greeted the happy couple with showers of rice and good wishes. " The  same evening a crowd gathered at  the house where they were temporarily staying, and with the aid of  cans, cow bells, etc., proceeded to  give them a heartier welcome, but  alas for their efforts! The blushing bride appeared on the scene and  informed the merrymakers that her  husband had been called to the mill  on important; business and' would  jiot be home that night. Therefore  the gang had to disperse, but cheer  up. there may be other nights.  ....The Post wishes Mr. and Mrs.  Scotsvold many years of happiness  and prosperity.  Mr. and Mrs. W. Longfellow are  moving from-Sumas and will reside  in Abbotsford infuture.  MAKE THINGS QUIET.  The heavy rains during the past  few days have made our town very  quiet and the attendance at public  meetings exceedingly small. Whileall  are wanting more favorable weather, they are thankful the mildness  continues;   it  is  kind  to the  poor.  After getting "domiciled in his new  residence, Mr. Longfellow intends er  ecting a new' barn on his premises,  which v.ill be equipped with all the  modern ' conveniences suitable for bo  vine comfort. After the structure  is completed it will be stocked with  the most luxurient food stuff to be  found on the market���������naturally this  will be procured from "J.J.'s" Feed  and Grain Emporium. When this  has been accomplished he will then  carefully study one of Eaton's' catalogues and if it cointains a thorough  bred graded Holstein cow, guaranteed to produce luscious cream suitable for a growing family, the afore  said animal will probably at once be  purchased and shipped by parcel post  direct to its destination but in case  no such animal is in stock, the order will be sent direct to the old  country, where these animals are  raised especially for the foreign  market. Then the two recent purchasers of milk producing bovines  will have to look to their laurels if  they wish to remain in the dairy  business.  NEW   VERANDAH  FOR   MANSE  The Ladies' Aid met at the home  of Mrs. Thomas on Wednesday and  among other business transacted engaged Mr. J. Hutchison to build a  verandah at the rear of the Manse.  ^^^^ ���������PftE    ABBOTSFORD . POSt  'ABBOTSFORD,   B.   C.  ,������������... i .^--.  THE ABBOTSFORD POST.

But after this it in hoped that we,  will bo able to do better, and maybe  on some occasion, when lifting, will  come out ahead of time.  This week tho elections will bo  in full swing, the candidates all  working full time and possibly overtime for a few days. We are sincerely hoping that it will be fine  weather so that the various candidates can get around to see the  voters. When the-sun is shining it  is always easier to talk politics.  Then it is easier to stand outside  and listen, too.  , Throughout    the    Fraser    Valley  last year, the various municipalities  were  fortunate   in   having    a    good  council,   headed   by   a   good   reeve,  to   look   after   their   affairs.     Many  of these same men' are running again  for office and expect to  be elected.  " It is up to the electors to elect the  men   who   will   work   best  together  for the good of the community. This  coming year will be one of the best  that the Fraser Valley has ever seen  and we want men who will be able  to   grasp   the   opportunities   before  they  pass,   and  use  them   for  the  benefit   of   the   community.      Vancouver is trying to do a little boosting for the Fraser Valley these days  and will do more during the coming  year than ever before.    Situated as  Vancouver is,  she can do much"' to  popularize. the   Fraser  Valley  with  intending settlers.    Once the Fraser  Valley is seen  by  many who  come  to   this  province  to   settle   there  is  ([notations   romained  steady   at  last  week's prices.  In tho fish section salmon rose  from 12 1-2 to 15 cents a pound and  cod wont up from .10 to 12 1-2 cts.  a pound, and herrings down to four  pounds for 25. cents. Sturgeon remained at 15 cents per pound..  ' Thore was agood supply of poultry but no apparent change iu the  prices . . Dressed poultry on an average fetched 25 cents a pound.  Cabbages, potatoes, carrots and  turnips were in abundanco with' the  first mentioned selling at $1 a sack  and potatoes at $1.15 to $1.25a sack  The last two remainod at 75 cents a  sack Celery was offered on the  market at two  for  25  cents.  Carnations and narcissus appeared on the flower stands along with  potted plants such as azaleas, tulips  cinerarias and aspedestras. Carnations were sold at 75 cents a dozen.  Potted plants ranged from 35 cents  apiece to  $1  for aspedestras.  Complaints were heard on tho  market from Ltuln-er residents regarding the .scheduled time of the  New Delta which docs not arrive at  the market wharf until 12 o'clock,  too late for bringing market produce. This is because it makes the  run  to  Steveston  first.  Ward IV.  Boll-Satch'ell. That J. A .Catherwood and G. A. Watson-be added,to  the voters' list.    Carried.

It dpos not appear that the nine  applicants for oil land near-Mission  place much faith in their speculation. The department rules that the  applicaion fees must bo followed  within thirty days by tho payment of  one year's rent. This has not been  done and therefore the local land  ofilco has notified the department,  and, on receipt of a reply from Ottawa, the lands under notice will be  open for application by the first person who desires thorn.���������Columbian.  The above only applies to those  from the coast--cities who staked  land here, and has nothing. to do  with tho real promoters' at Hatzic  Prairie, where the oil was discovered first, and where boring opera--  tiona will commence within a short  tinie.

"Well, this is thevway it looks to me:  Lucy, she cuts Orville short on mince  .pies.    He's a terribly greedy fellow,  and he fixes up1 a plan, where his .wife  will be persuaded to make, a lot of pies  and  parafeen them  and  store  them  against.next winter;-that's,the experiment on her part   Now, Orville puts  theN pies in the icehouse and helps himself to 'em whenever he wants one or  two or three, an' he eats 'em down  the bay, throwin' the parafeen tops  ���������overboard, forgettin' they're evidence  of his crime.

I knew that Orville Beers was miles  flown the bay. I could see his boat  with its patched sail .white against the  headland. "I suppose he is eating  mince pie," I mused.  Then events moved rapidly, as they,  usually do when Captain Baroabns  sets them in'motion.  Maria emerged from her back' door  and entered Lucy's house, J!, heard'  Lucy's shrill exclamation and .*������w her  dart from the house, followed by Mn-  rla, both heading for the .icehouse.  Lucy's thin arms dragged, at the. heavy  door, and Mnrln helped. The t^o were  gone five'minutes. When they emerged Lucy was scolding shrilly. Jiud ia  her arms she carried a pile of empty  pie tins.
