C: Poultry men's > Co-operative Exchange, and Mr. Fairley of the Poultry branch of the Dominion Government Department of Agriculture  gave ,a very interesting and instructive  address   during  the  evening.  ''Quite, a    number of    names were  added to rthe membership:'   A' cam'-]  ���������paign  \vhich is  being carried on  on  .-..Vancouver Island and the Mainland  "to increas.e* tlie'mernbership - of.-.~ tlie.  -Co-operative  .-Exchange . is meeting  with s-plendid success. "     ^ '  '���������  tThe object' of the,Exchange is to"  stabilize the market'and assure the  , producer of a fair price-for, product  at a fair price tp the consumer.  'Owners' of- thousands of birds ' have  signed up" for membership In the  past ten days'. In order to give -the  small producer who becomes a member of the Exchange the same marketing privileges as the , large, producer, egg collecting depots are being established in-various distr'c'-  where small amounts of eggs can be  disposed of for shipment at prevailing prices. Arrangements are being  made to establish one of the collecting stations'in Abbotsford , in the  course of the next two weeks,^ and  the Goyerment system of egg packing will also be used with special  arrangements for shipping so that  when the case is opened, the receiver can tell exactly where the eggs  sent by each producer are placed in  the box.  The 'Co-operative Exchange has  very materially assisted the poultry  farmers in the matter of marketing  and prices and also in the grading  of eggs, and all poultrymen would  gain by availing themselves of this  help offered by the Exchangei methods.

So well  matched were the Mens' Senior  teams of these two towns that the  game resulted'in^a tie of 24-24.  Some of the Sardis players were  late in arriving on account of an accident on the way down, when one of  the cars rolled over the embankment  on the Vedder Mountain, severly  bruising and shaking up the occupants.

Editor and Proprietor  'FRIDAY,, JANUARY  5,   1923  ax.  The New Year passed off quietly,  there not being very rmuch of the  usual noise���������the- blowing" of horns,  whistles and sending off "of firecrackers. Just a very few of th'e; usual  noises that one hears on! the dawn of  a New Year. It* may be'that the eve  of 1923 falling on a Sunday made tho  difference, or was it the :��������� rainy  night?  There are many things we hope  will be satisfactorily settled during  the coming year, and it is up to all  of us to devote our energies to the  solving of those problems that concern- the -community, for its better-  merit arid advancement. "During these  days' of< small* profits, with poor markets'the. coming year brings its  problems for'*1,the fruitgrower' and  farmer; 'also' the' merchant and business man. Whether the present effort'���������for organization ��������� among- the  fruit-growers1 will bring -'the'-desired  1 reSult no 'brie -is' prepared!'' to ' say.  Many people at the present -lime are  rather '��������� disgusted witlr co-operation as  carried out in ;ther Fraser.-Valley during ������h'e past few years; but in co-oper  atfon'* and'Hh'o'rbugti--organization we  beli'ey,e;ii'es thV'true solution for the  ' grower' of''fruits1.-' ' ** -   -  It is the only way that the grower will-be'able' to-compete "with bth-  ,/. ers in the same market. - But co-operation-thoroughly'carried out costs  money; as-there 'are sure to be many  -. mistakes made until "such time as organization', .is*, perfected. But tho  plan .would appear to  , be to    make  "- these^losses-asismall as possible, in  - the*, meantime. - . -The grower must  be able to live and pay his way during this' period. > ' ��������� - -  . In other products of the farm too  there must-be better organization to  compete with-, the- well planned ou,t  schemes 'that are ��������� being mooted to'  satisfy "--"those- nieri who- handle farm  , products to make large profits,  much of wriich should go, "to the man  on tlie soil." '  The middleman must be cut out.  ��������� The ,|a'rml produce of-"all kinds must  go"as 'direct' as -possible '  to the con  sumer.  2. .-.-.>(  gotten'man is patriotic and conscientious; he pays Jiis continually' increasing taxes and his continually  increasing' bills witli some private  grumbling, no ' doubt, but withoin  any articulate protest. He thinks thai-  it is all inevitable. He does not realize how many of his burdens are tho  result of some shrewd arrangements  between legislators, with an eye r.u  their "own political advantage or of  extravagances that theorists in government or politicians who are interested in the creation of more- offices press upon a bewildered congress or parliament. The forgotten  man often forgets himself, and as a  member of some political party or  social organization cheers and votes  for economic or administrative policies that he thinks are going to help  him to a better living, whereas those  policies quietly abstract two dollars  from his pocket for every dollar they  put there.   ���������  , We do not need to point out to anyone that tax bills are a great deal  larger than they used to be. The man  who does not find them three times  as" large is lucky. And while direct  taxation' doubles and doubles again,  indirect taxation through rents, food  and other necessary expenses does  not diminish but rises' with the other.  The forgotten man, who is not a landlord or a speculator or a trader,' is  not in a position to profit by rising  prices. He simply pays the bills, and  he is hard put to it to keep on paying  them.    ' .  The forgotten man is not a revolutionary, except under obvious oppression. He is a hard and faithful  worker, and he is inclined to accept*  conditions as he finds them, and to  struggle along under them as long,  as he can. He is the most coservalive  force in- society, the cement that  holds the social structure together.  But, he can be tried too far. He is not  likely to rebel openly, or to enter the  scramble for favors from the government. But if things get too hard for  him, he will '��������� simply stop having a  ���������family. He and his kind will fade  out of the social picture as' they did  when the classic civilization fell. And  when he has disappeared events will  amply   revenge   him.'  We are not yet at that, point. But  we cannot safely go much further  in government lavishness. For our  own salvation we mus,t begin-to remember the forgotten man.���������Ex.  FAMILY BUDGET IS LESS  THAN JT WAS A YEAR AGO  to .such a point where it will lubricate" the herrings and gears as it is  intended to do.  This passing of ' gasoline to the  duced by the use of a radiator  shutter or cover for keeping the engine warm during idle periods, when  it may be left standing out-of-doors  or in unhealed garages. Numerous  devices are being marketed for this  ���������purpose ranging from a water-proof  covering to an automatic control .shut  ter. A hand-operated shutter which  serves the purpose of conserving the  heat of the engine to a'-very great  extent and is very economical to install, can' be purchased from any re-  ,!���������"��������������� hie accessory dealer. There are  also on -the market several devices  winch are quicKly and easily installed and prove -- economical heating  units.  The storage battery of a' car is an  all important one too frequently neglected. Care should be taken at  the start of the 'cold weather to see  that it is properly charged. Any service station will be glad to give you  this information. "���������   ,  During the' winter months, due to  the short days, the lights of a car are  used a great deaUmore than in summer. The starter,'also is used considerably in getting the car running,  when it is cold, and this results in  drawing a great deal of power from  the battery.

THE FORGOTTEN  MAN.  "The newspaper is a great organization. Its success, its existence  depends on the appreciation and  good will of the'public. If the public supports a paper devoted to the  well-being of the community, that  devotion will continue. So you pan  have a press as independent and  high-minded as you deserve."  So said  George M.    Murray,    recently at the   , brotherhood "meeting  at   tho   First  Presbyterian '   Church.  His subject was:     "Tho Mission    of  the  Press,"  and  the    address,"    and  the   discussion   which   followed     it,  proved   informative  and  interesting.  The speaker sketched the history of  the newspaper.      He showed how, in  the early days, the press was hamo-  ered   and  fettered  by  an    irritating  censorship, and' how men like Samuel Johnson, Leigh    Hunt,    Charles  Dickens, Douglas Jerrold and others  had' fought for "The Liberty of the  Press,"  and  Gladstone, Bright    and  Cobden had taken off the taxes    on  knowledge.    .Education    had    made  the    British empire   an    empire    of  readers, and the press* was now    in-  clispensible  to every home..      A, tribute was'paid to Horace Greely, Wm.  Lyon1 - Mackenzie,     George    Brown.  Joseph Howe, Sir    Wilfrid    Laurier  and others,    who, in ''"this    western  world, had kept true to the best traditions of the press.  The wonderful development of  newspaper work were "graphically  described. The changes produced by  steam and electricity ' were great,  and how wireless and radio, associ-j  ated with newspaper enterprise, supplemented the printed' sheet. The  people of England had to wait two  days for news of Waterloo, but now-  "news" appeared in print a few minutes after the events recorded had-  happened.  Mr. Murray urged university training for journalists and for advertising .writers, but he pleaded much  for an enlightened, ��������� ethical publk  opinion, which would find its reflec-  ,tion in the press���������a press which thus  'stimulated would feeKan urge towards what    made for    the    public  .good.  An interesting discussion followed, and the speaker was warml}-  thanked for his illuminating address.  HIGHWAYS IN ENGLAND  MUST BE 24 FEET WIDE  In a brilliant essay-���������as distinguished for sound common sense as  for brilliancy-���������^an American professor has presented-, to his readers' the  figure oftthe "forgotten man," the  man riwhbm : no lawmaker; seems to  represent-who exists to-pay the bills  that more stirring and well organized  groups of the citizens persuade the  government to contract, and to support frbiri his'usxialjy scanty mean3  the projects that are intended to ben-  ettt'"btiief ";^mb"ire"'orr less" deservlrier  members of the community. The for-  Protecting the finish of a highly  polished car and conserving the heat  energy generated by the motor are 2  highly important things to. any motorist.' Another highly important  feature of winter driving is the care  of the storage battery in the car.  The finish of a car may be exposed to serious damage during winter,'  due to the fact that mud ��������� and water  frozen on the paint dull the finish  and cause the paint to chip. During  the winter months, extreme care  should be taken to keep the finish  free from dirt. Contrary to popular belief, hot water should not be  used in cleaning a car, as it is equally as injurious as' mud and; ice. If  it is not possible to take the car into  a warm place for washing where the  ice will thaw and can be easily removed, lukewarm'water, may be used  with injury to the finish.      .  v 1  Heat is one of the all important  factors in winter driving. ...D.uring  the summer months the '" average  driver has' little trouble with getting  his motor warm enough to operate  smoothly arid economically, but during the winter it is difficult, for  some cars to warm the motor enough  to insure this effi-cient operation.  As a result'gasoline passes by the  pistons and gets into the crank case;  the'"'gasoline'' does not give its maximum power and the oil is not heated.  -    A.

Unusual interest is being shown ia  this-discovery as it-opens up possibilities for exploration the extent.ot  which can only  be. surmised.  .The Nakimu Caves, the most wonderful ' series; of underground chambers in .Canada, ��������� was- rtiscq-yerod in  1904 by a .miner while prospecting.  in the Cougar valley. The story of  the.early explorations of these underground, caves reads - like a page  from Jules Verne. .Over, a mile of  high-domed, halls and connecting passages, whose wall of crystalline limestone send, back the rays of the  lights ;in a ��������� myriad of ��������� colours, are  open to. visitors forming one of the  most" thrilling ��������� .experiences' imaginable. *.���������'-������������������'-"���������  Halfway* down the valley Cougar  creek,'. which' has--'come down.'' from  the' glaciers, is ' sudderily snatched  down into the bowels of the mountain and-iroars along '��������� through* the  caves at the.very feet of the visitors.  Twice during.,.the ��������� course of a mile  it reappears, and ; flows for a little  in the light'��������� of day to finally.disappear by an underground channel.  The rumbling of the waters through  the' caves is' probably responsible  for the . name, "Nakimu" which  means ','grumbling or spirit noises."  The new chamber which adjoins  Cave No. 4 is a large cathedral-like  cavern , ..equalling . in t length and  height some of our,largest'halls.-.

My purse was'- full of the good long  green, and my raiment was smooth  and new, and I looked as slick as/a  cabbage rose that's kissed by'the nice  wet dew;- Behind the bottles a mirror stood,. as large as your parlor  floor, arid I looked and .looked in  the shining glass, and -wondered, and  looked sorne more. .My own reflection did not appear, but there where  it' should have been, I- saw the form  of a'cringing bum all crumpled and  soaked with gin. His n'cjs'e was red  and his eyes were dim; unshorn was  his swollen face, and I thought it  queer such a seedy bo would come  to so smooth a place. I (turned  around for a better look at this ef-  figv of despair, and nearly fell in  a. little heap, for the effigy wasn't  there! The barkeep laughed. "It's  the Magic Glass," he said with a  careless yawn; "it shows a man how  he's apt to look years hence "when  his roll is gone!"  Poultry meat has' dropped in price  to'such an extent that its general use  should -be more seriously considered.  Viewed from the .economic as well as  die scientific standpoint of nutrition  it 'is worthy of a higher place and  more frequent use in "the daily diet_  than it has-been accorded., It should"  be regarded* as' an essential 'part of  our diet, rather'than as a luxury.'.  The question of the value of poultry'meat for food has been given.at-.  tention by chemists at .various times.  Results of their researches have been  published from time to time. Analyses have been made of the flesh of  practically all''. kinds' of domestic-  fowl-and these1'furnish a basis' for  other articles of human food. ', A  comparison , of poultry - meats with  beef, veal, lamb and pork show that  the refuse in poultry is soinewhat  less than in the other meats. Furthermore, the carcass ot fowl can be  used as soup stock, thus rendering  available a large amount of'nourishment.which would otherwise be lost  and'which in the case'of, other meats  is often discarded. The amount of  water is about the same in poultry  as in other moats but the amount of-  indigestible nutrients in poultry," is  small. Summing up these differences poultry shows a slightly higher  portion actually available for nourishment than other moats. As fats'  furnish-more heat/per unit-weight  "than-, proteins-or carbohydrates rind'  since' poultry meat is somewhat low-,  e'r in fat than other meats' its fuel  value is correspondingly less. ��������� To  state this in .another ��������� way,- --poultry  meat furnishes more tissue 'forming  biit less of the heat forming elements  and" it must' bo borne in mind that- as  a rule the former are the more expensive. , , "  - Common .or domestic fowl contains,  more refuse" than average poultry, is  about average in protein but richer  in'fat. Turkey contains relatively  little refuse- about 2 per cent, riiqro'  protein^ and,, the same .proportion of  fat., Goose.'shows the, lowest proportion of refuse of ' the "poultry  'meats', "a-lower proportion of protein  but much higher fat content.'' Combined with this is a certain prejudice against goose which has a tendency to lower the market price'. This  has resulted to make goose of the  cheapest, most wholesome and nutritious foods''on -the rnarket.. Duck  cbntains' relatively-'large amounts of  refuse, little protein and large .quantities of fat. : ���������       '.  Poultry as    a    whole ,  (especially  chickens and    geese)     with the low-  price and high muscle . forming properties, the easily digested and palatable qualities' make the ideal meat  food for everybody, particularly for  those in offices,and for invalids and  children.' .

The  new superior is much improved in  both-chassis and  body  construction.  The complete new line include?  the touring car, roadster, light delivery car, utility coupe, sedanette  and sedan, all enclosed models-carrying the Fisher' Body Company's .metal name and plate.  ��������� The sedanette is an entirely new  body.type. , It is,a four-passenger,  car carrying a -large trunk at the  rear of the body with metal protection strips placed to prevent chafing. The two front seats are, full  size,, comfortably upholstered,, and  tilt forward for" access to the rear  seat. This is, of course, also a Fisher body.      '���������   "  The radiator on all models is considerably higher r than heretofore',  which, of course, means a larger and  higher hood and cowl. This gives  full stream line effect on all. body  types. The gasoline tank is' now carried at the rear with Stewart vacuum feed on all models. Headlights  are of the new .drum type andequip-  ed with legal lenses, while the curtains on all models open with the  doors, and the front doors, open-in  the opposite, direction,' to the rear  doors. ..-.''���������:  ��������� Fenders are of the .new full-crown  type with'a graceful curve -over both  front and rear, wheels.

There are , a great many .small  louvres' in the hood, which makes it  more attractive .and , stronger than  in the previous models.  The frame,has been, lengthened a  trifle and the wheel, base .increased  slightly.* The frame is.also. considerably' heavier, which, . with '��������� the  added - equipment, - increases the  weight about 125 pounds'. This will  make for increased riding comfort.  The steering gear is of a . new type  worm"and. sector,, replacing the. spur  gear type on previous models.-..

That day, a memorable  one in the history of Canada, will  always be one of Vancouver's most  important anniversaries. In 1887,  the journey from Montreal,to Vancouver, which now takes but four  days, consumed a full week.  "Queen's weather ushered in the  day long looked for by the Vancqu-  verites���������the blending of the Occident and the Orient," states a, despatch sent that day from the  Coast. "When the train reached  Vancouver carrying the-officers j of  the road and your special correspondent, it was greeted with ringing cheers in every direction.

This was five thousand more cars of/ Saskatchewan  wheat than had been mdved in the  same period in any year. ,   ,  He also pointed, out that' even  with the unprecedented; grain movement the Canadian Pacific was moving from 250 to 275 carloads per  day from the Western coal.,mines.  "There was thirteen thousand tons  -moved yesterday," he declared. I'  was here three weeks'or a month ago *  and-at that time I stated we were  moving 250 to 275 cars of- coal a  day, and the movement has been  kept at that ever flince.

All   Work  Guaranteed  DH> YOU EVER STOP TO THINK.  THAT most cities need are: Fewer pessimists' and a greater number  of citizens with faith in its future.   '  THAT our .country needs more  tractors and less\,detractors.  THAT despite looks and words of  the confirmed, 'pessimist, that our  country is ������oing to the dogs, all outward and visible signs point to an opposite direction. You don't have to  go outside of your city to see evidences 'of business revival.  THAT times are' getting better  and our city is, going strong.  THAT the first thing many citizens think when* asked to do something-for their city,; is: "What do I  get out of it? ' They should think,  "What can I do for my city?" Selfishness should not be thought of, in  civic service:  THAT mail .'order houses never  prosper in a city where the LOCAL  merchants advertise consistently, because the'mail order men know they  cannot compete with-a local store if  the merchant understands his, business.  THAT the public needs* educating  to a knowledge that they can buy at  home as' cheaply as buying away  from home.  THAT they can actually see what  they are buying before they pay for  it, and they do riot have to wait  days and even weeks, for the delivery of articles they buy.  (By E. R.
