If you COULD (although, OF COURSE, you  can't) stop, every-mail yoifmeet on ,the streets  asd ask: "Do you want to buy a pair of shoes?"  (Or any other kind of goods) You might find  half a dozen who would;say "Yes." Perhaps not  one of these, however, would want to buy the  article you want to sell.  If your advertisement, however, were to be  printed in these columns this week, it would  "stop" EVERY MAN IN TOWN WHO WANTS  TO BUY SHOES, OR CLOTHES, OR . ANY  OTHER ARTICLE���������and it wouldn't "stop" anyone who didn't want to buy- That's the beauty  of the advertising way of finding a buyer.; The  ad. finds the buyer through the simple process of  being easily and readily found BY the buyer -  And if, among the prospective buyers of goods,  there is one to whom your goods would be a bargain, and your ad. is a convincing one, you'll sell  what you want to sell.

Well, he blew into camp night before last; his leg is still a ���������  trifle weak but doing Que; and he has got to the iront with the  list of us after all.    I wish some of the other fellows had one-  tenth of his sand; they would be signing on in bunches for they  sure are needed.    But the day may come when every man that  is fit will have to pack a Ross rifle, and I should think any one  w6"l<? r?thev join of his own free will.    If that time comes, they  may have something Jo kick about, for, they won't get used as  we are, Cor we have certainly been treated "white.

"Conditions in the trenches are not as bad as I expected to  find them but the country itself is certainly on the blink.

A. BATES, -"-      -.     ,   Editor and Proprietor  FRIDAY".  JANUARY   7,   1 91 0  Have you broken that New Year Resolution yet, or did you  make any at all? , , _     ' .���������,..,..^  ��������� The fruit growers of this' district have an opportunity that  should not. be overlooked by them, as it is an oportunity to  place their business on a better scale than' heretofore. We refer  to the inquiry of the Economic and Development Commission  recently appointed by the Dominion government. Last week  we published some of the points on which this commission were  desirous of securing information; also stating* that they had received many communications directing its attention to', these  matters of public interest.  One-of the greatest matters of public interest in Canada today or any future day will be the agricultural interests, and this  commission want to collect accurate and reliable statistics relative to the agricultural production of the Dominion. The  great object of this, as we gather it, is to formulate some kind  of a system whereby; the producers may secure definite information so as to get the best out of the land that is possible, and  the best method of marketing that produce, whether it be grain  or fruit or any other product,of the soil.  Then comes the question of long-and short term,credits;  the important matter of co-operation; the question of protecting  both the producer and the consumer; the question of settling  the vacant lands of Canada. All these questions are of vital interest "to the fruit growers and farmers of this district.  This commission should be made acquainted with the difficulties that the agriculturist meets with in this western province  and more particularly, the Fraser Valley and its markets.  There are many men in this district who are thoroughly  familiar with the difficulties of raising fruit and the marketing  of it to advantage; also there are men who know some ideas  that if put into practice would lessen the difficulties of making-  fruit raising :a success, from the point of yield, marketing and  above all, the securing of the proper financial returns.  We believe that-all this information should be placed before  the Commission in Ottawa during the present winter; but there  is the question of the best method of doing this. The growers  cannot send a man to meet the Commission except at great er-  pense.to themselves, and then that one man might forget for the  time being some important points; they cannot ask .the Commission to come here for a' sitting as apparently thet Commission are have the sittings at Ottawa.  The next best thing we can think of is for the fruitgrowers  to get together, form up a true statement pf the difficulties that  are met with���������a satement of the business as it now stands���������and  send it to the Commission. Suggestions might also be made as  to the methods that might be adopted to improve the situation.  So far as we can learn this is what the Commission is after.  And although many of us may not have much faith in Commissions and their results, yet no opportunity to improve the present  unsatisfactory conditions should be overlooked.  Other agriculturists than the fruit grwer, residing in the  Fraser Valley, have their difficulties to be met, and a statement  of affairs should also be placed before the Commission.  Think it over and have a meeting at an early date.  No wonder some of our public men sometimes become tired  of public life and wish to retire; while others do not wish to devote their time to politics. Cartoons are all right but sometimes  they are carried too far. We have in mind one a few days ago  in a Vancouver morning paper that is certainly obnoxious to  British Columbians no matter what their politics. It is labelled  ''Sir Richard" so there is no mistaking for whom it is .meant  We presume however that it is by such tactics that the Liberals  of the Province are without a daily paper in their interests in  Vancouver. ���������  Egypt has now become one of the puzzles of the situation.  The stories seem to be circumstantial enough that defensive  preparations are being made there. The size of the army is variously estimated, but an army large enough for security icannot  be a small one. And while there amy be many doubts as  to the intention of Van derGoltz to harass Egypt, there is no  denying that the Turks have the will to do it. The opening of  the road through Serbia and 'Bulgaria means, Whatever happens,  that Egypt is laid under threat; and whatever England might  have left unsaid about armies that were too late in Belgium or  armies that were too late for Serbia, no excuse for being too late  in Egypt would be taken, and no government had better let itself  in for the necessity of making such an excuse.  Already the damage has been partly done, for if Dutch  ships are sailing round the Cape because they will not trust to  the risks of the canal, risk must exist for other ships than the  Dutch, and we need not be surprised to hear, any day, that British trade to and from Africa is again following its early paths,  on the long journey around Africa.���������Beck's weekly.  Many people look upon Monday as "Blue Monday", but not  a dark day is there in Bro. Simpson's Mondays for that is the day  The Victorian is published; and he publishes an inoffensive paper full of news.  A dejected Tommy was struggling in an unsuccessful attempt to clean his rifle. This is what he is supposed to have  said: "Well, of all the pullthroughs I ever pulled through, I  never pulled a pulthrough through that pulled through like this  pullthrough pulls through." Say this fast.  Well the boys are still in the trenches-  Christmas can't still be quite over.  -so we presume that  There are quite a number of people who think that their  day's duty to the country is done after they have paid the one-  cent charity tax for their evening movie show.���������Exchange.  GAY DOINGS AT CLAYBURN  Old Year's, night was a gay night  in Clayburn. The boarding house  being decorated for a marriage festival, and tables laden with a splendid supper for the' wedding guests.  The happy pair was Elia Fisher  Brown, from Musselburgh, .Scotland  and' Peter 'Mathiesen, ,Clayburn, Bo  C. Mrs.. John Ford, Clayburn, sister  of the bride was best maid, and Mr.  Stcneren, Matsqui, brother-in-law of  the bridegroom was best man. Rev.  Mr. Millar officiated and the wedding  ceremony went smoothly. Mr. Andrew Brown the bride's brother also  residing in Clayburn gave the bride  away. Clayburn has few young men  nowadays���������most of them being' on  active service (all honor to them).  But any young man .present at the  wedding -would I am sure have been  only too delighted to fill Pete's place.  It is not evrey day one sees such a  beautiful bri.de. Her dress of old  rose silk most tastefully made and  trimmed and orange blossom in her  hair only served to enhance her looks  They sure wore a.handsome couple.  They delighted the hearts of the  company with their radiant happy  faces. The bridesmaid's dress was of  tussore silk. After the ceremony and  when everyone had congratulated Mr.  and Mrs. P. Mathiesen all sat down to  supper. It surely had been a' labor of  love. It was a .feast of beauty to look  on the tables alone and everything  that willing hands and loving hearts  could do had been done to make everything a success. If the mother  and father in the old country could  but have been present they would  have rejoiced to see how many true  and faithful friends their daughter  had made in Clayburn. Well after  supper speeches were made by Mr. A  Brown Rev. Mr. Millar and replied  to by the bridegroom. Then the tallies were cleared and moved to make  room for dancing and the dancing  was godo. Mr. D. Lamont gave the  company great pleasure by dancing  the Highland Fling and sword dance.  The New Year was brought in by a  crowd outside with crackers and a  band composed of old tins and cans  of all descriptions. After the commotion ceased they all came in to  wish the married pair much happiness. Then more dancing and the  most delicious coffee, cakes, sandwiches, .wines, etc., were handed a-  round. About 3 o'clock it broke up  and everyone departed home leaving  all kinds of good wishes behind  them. For presents: they have been  ovewhelmed with. them. In fact, they  wil.l have't have-Jigger house. There  is no room for parading throught the  night in their present house. It is  overstocked with handsome presents.  The wedding cake three stories high  was made and presented to them by  Mrs. Stenersen, Matsqui. It was a  dandy and -was greatly appreciated  and admired. The other presents are  too numerous to mention. We will  now leave them with all good wishes  and may good health and good fortune follow them all the dys.���������Communicated.  ELECTIONS IN MATSQUI  Election talk is vigorous in  Matsqui and it looks as though  all the offices to be filled will be  contested, and after election a  few changes may also be made.  For Reeve the name of Mr. A.  Cruickshank is again mentioned. He has. had a fairly successful year.under very trying  circumstances, and wishes to  carry out the work he has begun. Ex-Reeve Merry field's  name is also mentioned, as is  that of Mr. Jackman; while  the name of Councillor Melander and Councillor McCalium is  also spoken of, and was practically announced that a few  weeks ago that either one of  them would run, but not against each other.  Mr. Nels Fore will contest  the councillorship of Ward I.  with the present councillor Mr.  W. Elliott The contest should  be a hot one as Coun. Elliott  has a good grip of municipal  matters which should help him  and Mr. N. Fore is popular on  the prairie.  in Ward II. it is altogether  likely that Coun. McCalium will  run for councillor, if his canvass shows him that he would  have better chances than as  reeve in a many cornered contest. -He-will not likley be opposed.  For Mt. Lehman ward Coun.  Owen is again in the field and  the ratepayers could not do better than elect him by acclamation.  In Ward IV. Coun. Melander  will be the Candidate if he decides not to run for reeve. He  may not be opposed.  0 IMJW'JWfl  ttzammvarvctm*  Drs. Gilbert ��������� Ma^a-^derson  British    Cotunqbia's ___Le_gjjj^g.
