R< DesMAZES'   '���������:  ABBOTSFORD AND WHATCOM RO  AD  Phone 16   ' , ' Farmers 1913  There was a    splendid attendance ! importance, and the .uniting togeth-  at the annual meeting of Abbotsford  and District Board of "Trade held in  -the Bank of Montreal Chambers on  Monday evening. .A very gratifying report of the year's, work was  .' given by the retiring president, Mr.  N. Hill, who spoke with optimism  of the prospects for prosperity in  B. C., in which Abbotsford and district must share. ; The organization  of'the Fraser Valley Boards of'Trade  was - referred - to ��������� - and - some-- of- its-  benefits mentioned. Continuing,  Mr. Hill said that the twelce "months  past was not marked by any spectacular event, the calendar is unmarked  , by any great achievement.  The Board has carried on much as-  usual, dealing with such things a������s  come before it in the interests of the  community. They have used their  best efforts to get as much as pos  sible for roads and sidewalks.  In- October the subject of vtown  lighting under' the Rural Lighting  Act was brought before the people.  The reception accorded- this measure  was not very cordial and the matter  was thrown back into committee.  Mr. Hill said that 1921 and .191:2  had been depressing years. Between  excessive' rains, unprecedented cold,  drought and other, adverse weather  conditions, the agriculturalist has  had a pretty* hard row to hoe. Unstable markets', falling prices and  uncertainties,. in industrial matters  all contributed their share to the  general depression which resulted <n  a very considerable falling off of  the volume of trade and gener.il  business.  Continuing, Mr. Hill said that it  was of the future that he would  like most to speak, believing as he  did that the mild fall, and the warm  open winter we have had ��������� so -'far,  will be very decided'factors in bringing local conditions back to normal  or better, or at least assisting to that  end. The farmer has not been compelled to commence feeding as' soon  or so heavily and he has been "Sieved of the strain of- a long cold winter so far, and all were hoping that  the mild weather will continue into  spring.  Taking a bri"!' view of provincial  , conditions we feel that a spirit of  optimism prevades the scene. Tho  prospects for the lumber industry  look good. American lumbermen  are casting their eyes toward this  province, as the last great stand of  big timber on the North American  continent, and it is to be hoped that  the province will reap rich harvest.  We have read signs of renewed activities in the mineral world, and if  such-signs are read aright this department should yield tribute to the  prosperity of 1923.  Mr. Hill sincerely thanked all for  their attendance at the Board of  Trade and for the support he had received during the year, and in conclusion requested that the members  continue to give their assistance and  support to those chosen to carry on  the work for the coming year. The  cultivation of a community spirit  was strongly advocated, the forgetting of many things that crop up  day by day, things of practically    no  er to get behind the best things for  the welfare of the'place in which to  live.  The report of the treasurer' was  >given and adopted, and showed a balance of $9.65. Liabilities, note ir.  the Royal Bank of Canada of $125.-  00, and the possession of a typewriter worth $75.00 (as an asset): The  total receipts for the year $440.18,  and expenses to the amount of $43o.-  62 ;had--been 'met."' ���������'-; ~--i' '"T^-   ';;  During the meeting $77.00' was  netted for membership as against  $45.00 at'the annual meeting'of last  year.

Whitchelo thanked the  members for the honor conferred  upon him, and briefly outlined how  -he would suggest the functioning of  the Board of Trade. Reference was  made to the lighting of the town, incorporation, and many other important undertakings under consideration. Mr. Whitchelo suggested that  the chairman of each committer  should work out their own departments during the current year. He  also spoke with favor of the community spirit with the view of making Abbotsford and District take  the central prominence which it enjoys as the central part of the Fraser Valley. Greater co-operation of  the district surrounding Abbotsford  was emphasized by several of the  members with the idea of increasing  the benefits of outside districts.  - An interesting', double wedding  took place on New Year's Day-' at  Barriere, when Kaulbick Johnstone  Nelson and'Katherine Nelson, son  and daughter,of Mr. and Mrs. J._H.

The respective bridesmaids were Miss Agnes it Raul of  Adams River and Miss .Violet Shaf-  er of Barriere, and the grooms  supported by Messrs. James and Wil-'  liam Nelson.

THE ABBOTSFORD'-PQST  Published Every- Friday  J. A. BATES. Editor and Proprietor  I ed his legions swiftly over t  erto impassable Alps, on a gc  FRIDAY, JANUARY  12,  1923  ' It is not often that a politician announces that the next election will  be his last, as-did Mr W. J. Bowser  recently In Vancouver. Politicians  generally stick with, the game untM  such time as they ore placed in    its  ��������� discard by the electorate or are sent  to Ottawa to.sit In tho "Home or  Refined Politicians." Some call it the  "Old Man's Home." but we do not  think that is a good name, as there  are some young men there, and aftoi'  all while members of tho Senate may  appear old in years there is no question but they do-exorcise good Judgment at times, and to cast an odium  of being the inmate of an old man's  home would signify that their days  of usefulness were past, which is not.  the case. Some of the brightest politicians, in Canada' are members of  the Senate.  But just what did Mr. Bowser  mean' when he stated that the "next  .will be my last?,;' -That-.one, sentence  taken out-of the speech may mean  but little, but if connected up with  the thread of his discourse might,  have a significance. In the same  speech he is said as being hopeful of  the .success, of. the. Conservative  party at the polls the- next time, in  which case he would in all.probabil-  ' ity be' premier.  . Recently a report came ^ from Ottawa that there would be an election  in B. C. soon. But , knowing ones  winked their eye and said it was not  bo. Mr. Bowser predicted in Vancouver last week that there would bo  .. an election in. 1923-or 1924. He is  old enough politician now to read-.the  handwriting on the wall, and may  have inside information.. He has a  peculiar knack "of having up-to.-date  information in political matters.  The inside workings of the Oliver-  government, at Victoria is no better  now'than it was'last, year when some  of the faithful went down and conferred with Premier Oliver, pressing  home certain facts, with such, force  that he admitted lie was undertaking  too many of the duties that should  fall.on the' shoulders.of others'. Since  that time he has seen fit to appoint-  a doctor to analyze the case of the,  P. G. E. Other changes have been  made that have-lightened the duties  of the premier. The last session  pointed to the fact that all was not  working, well within the party. Less  than a- baker's dozen of the followers of the premier sat in the legislature when, he made some of his important speeches.      Did they admire  ' their leader they would have been  there In'full force to hear him hand  it out to the leader of the opposition.  Throughout the country there are  life-long Liberals who declare that  they will not again follow their present, leader in the next election. So  that the present government with  its supporters of 1916 forms no  mutual admiration society. Of course  there are those in both parties all  over "the country who change in between elections���������some for one reason, and some for another.  On the other hand we believe that  at the present time there are more  admirers' of Mr. Bowser throughout  the province than there has been  for many years. He has shown that  in the dark shades of opposition he is  able to probe quite a distance into  the affairs of the government with  a view to bringing out the weaknesses.    He claims' he has    done so but  mior Oliver .-���������' ;.". ..times. Maylu  Premier Oliver needs'.a good, friend  at Ottawa. Maybe King is the good  angel who goes to prepare a political  place for Premier Oliver -when the  time arrives. Have you not heard  good Liberals say that the party will  be recognized before the next provincial election? That a new' leader  will head the  Liberal party.  At tiie coming session of the  Mouse at Ottawa the question of a  Redistribution bill is promised. Tt  was said that the ��������� Conservatives  should not have gone to the countvy  until it had been passed. Last session it was overlooked. According,  to the census it is claimed that B. C.  is entitled to one more represent^-,  live-at least, making 14 instead of 13  as at present.  Burrard which includes the outskirts of Vancouver City and all the  north shore of the Inlet, claims another .representative. Tho next  most' pressing claim may be that of  the Cariboo riding which 'stretches  from the Arctic almost to the international border via Kamloops and  Nicola. The northern portion of this  district claims a representative of  its own.  Now should a Redistribution Act  .in coming into force' give to the  province two more members, making  it 15, then there is no question- but  'that B. C. would be entitled to another representative  in the Senate.  We do,not know how long after  the new act came,into force.it would  be strictly politically polite to - appoint the new senator. That would  depend on the government of the  day, and we might at any time be  privileged <to see the cartoonist for  the big daily in Vancouver drawing  pictures of the Hon. Dr King, Minister of Public.Works, at Ottawa, leading by the hand the overwork id  premier of this province, Hon. John  Oliver; and introducing him to the  .speaker and the members of the Senate as the man for the job; and by  thus accepting the new honors relieved' the provincial political situation in B. C; and at the same time  maintain the prestige of an honored  political career of a very strenuous  nature in B. C, commencing first as  a-follower of Joseph Martin in 1898.  Then along would come the cartoonist again telling how ex-Premior  Oliver as the newest, senator of  the province was carefully looked after by senior B. C. Senators, until  at Ducks he was taken in  charge of by the leader of  the Senate,- Hon. Senator Bostock.  Old politicians who have followed  the political life in this province  would highly appreciate this picture,  or cartoon.  ' As the speaker after a long tiresome speech says yet another cartoon and we are through. There  might be heights other than' Senator  to which Mr. Oliver might a.-mire,  and with Mr. Bowser as premier  might it not be quite fitting that  when the term of the present lieutenant-governor expires, that Senator  Oliver might come to B. C. to fitill  "keep his eye on Bowser."  THE HIGHWAYS OF PROGRESS  The following article appeared in  a recent issue of ''Good Roads," the  official ..organ of the Edmonton Automobile and Good Roads Assn.,    and  Reed,  es.    He claims' he has    aone bo uui  war, contributed  by  Chas.  H  the extent of some of these will not  n������J. President of the association.  ���������    ��������� ... , The same problems that obtain, in  be known until tho present govern  ment sits again in the cold shades of  opposition. In this he has aroused  the curiosity of many of the voters  who may next opportunity try to sco  if Mr. Bowser is right, and vote Conservative.  Notwithstanding the apparent ������e-  curity of the present government at  Vitoria it would not be surprising  that an election is looming on  the political horizon and may come  up quite unexpected.    We'"shall see.  Grain elevators for Vancouver  might appear to have been the biggest question discussed with Hon  Dr. King on his recent visit to this  province, but it may be that he came  on other-matters. Keep in mind -tho  fact that Dr. King is a friend of Pre-     problem  Edmonton' will be no doubt equally  applicable in this district or elsewhere and this article; is passed on  with this end in view.  Men build roads for progress'  sake with their hands, with their  minds, and both are dependent on  each other. The travel road used  by,the automobile, the railway, by  men and animals, for pleasure, industry or health, is made possible by  ti'^'rond of thinking, the road of  ability to transfer such thought into  the action which builds roads, and  so brings prosperity to all. Millions  of money have been lost in the past  by the lack of good travel roads, as  again, millions of people have been  held back from progress' and prosperity by the lack of a good road  of mental thought and expression.  Men build���������for progress' sake���������  and the whole history of human effort has had its beginning in the  building of a road���������a road of thinking���������a road of travel,    Caesar mov-  the hith-'  ood road  placed there as a' result.of , mental.  action, which quickly recognized obstacles and the. easiest way to .overcome them. The same thought and  ambition which urged Caesar to  build that -road, urged him also to  build for .posterity. ' Caesar's travel  roads are used today.  Napoleon was one who combined  great intelligence with power and  ability to build good roads. He knew  that motion was progress, and progress was civilization, and he built  wisely and well.     '  ' At one time, all America used  horse-driven vehicles over muddy  travel roads, and in some parts, even  do it now. Today, nearly every  road is a railroad, for along it is  driven the automobile at railway  speed, and the concrete road is displacing the old muddy road, so becoming as important as the . ste-3l  railroad.  The good road enables the doctor  to get speedily in,touch with the emergency case of illness," or accident,  where time saves life. The good  road means travel,10in comfort to  those who use it, and so intercommunication between town and town,  individual and individual is made  easy, and as the post office system  of today allows millions to communicate easily and inexpensively by  means of the written word, so docs  the good road allow these millions  to meet in person. Distance is no  detriment, as long as the road la  good. , ,  People are invariably classified as  to their prosperity by the road within their gates. The rich man's abode  is always approached from,the front,  gates by smooth roads���������ugly, muddy  roads are shut .out,���������for the r.icli  man recognizes the value of comfort  and knows that a good road is ocm-'  fort.  Northern America has always beon  spoken of as a rich country. Canada  always prides itself.,on its' progress  and prosperity, but often the poor  road is allowed to occupy the placo  of the good road, all for. lack of u,  good mental road of thought and action.  Some, overlooking the mental  road, the use of which would answer*  their own argument, say: "Look at  the expense of building good roads."  They pass over .the profitable side  without thought, for all who think,  know that a' good road has' always  proved itself profitable, and never  too expensive, for what a good roa.l  saves in time to useful", individuals,  in machinery, repairs and breakages, in slow delivery, and all othe;-'  ills of poor roads, is more than  enough to balance the cost, and  show a profit besides.    -  Good roads mean healthy circulation. Poor roads mean clogged arteries. The wise individual always  keeps his body, which means his circulation, in good order, for he realizes it means life to him, and so wise  communities' do likewise with their  roads, for good roads are the life of  any community. WORK FOR GOOD  ROADS.  No country can afford to be without good roads, no individual either.  A good road programme means business for all, right from the time the  first sod is turned, in material and  labor.  Good roads mean better values  and new chances, for all. New inducements' for the hard pressed urban resident to become the happy  yeoman of the country-side. More  contented farmers, happier homes  and greater business. So why not  work for good roads?  . The public school represents tha  nation's great mental road building,  but it must always' leave an uncompleted job. It can only lay the  foundation for the completed mental  highway, leading to personal success,  which. depends for its final completion on the individual itself.  , Each man is his own road builder, and as with nations so it is with  men, both are known by- the roads  they build, the roads they travel.  Work with your neighbors to get  better roads for your district over  'which men, wagon, auto and rails  can travel, work with your'own mind  for the road of wider thought and accomplishment. Both route's are less  expensive, builded='wisely and well,  than the poor road of ignorance, of  mud, and their bqon companion, poverty.

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  the 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 attention by chemists at various times,  Results of their researches have been  published from time to time. Analy  pumisneu  irum  niuc w  u������m<-.  "������������������������'������?,,,;  seB have been made of the flesh    of* children.  practically all kinds . of domestic  fowl and these 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 somewhat  less than in the other meats. Furthermore, the carcass of fowl can bo  used as soup stock, thus rendering  available a large amount of nourishment which would otherwise be IofjI.  and which in the case of other moata  is often discarded. The amount of  water is about the same in poultry  as in other meats 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 meats. As fats  furnish more heat per unit: weight  than proteins or carbohydrates and  since poultry meat is somewhat lower in fat than other meats its fuel  value . is correspondingly less. To  state this in another way, poultry  meat furnishes more tissue forming  but loss of the heat forming elements  and it must be 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, more  protein and the same proportion of  fat. Goose shows the lowest proportion of refuse ol! 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, Thin  has resulted to make goose of the  cheapest, most wholesome and nutritious foods' on the market. -Duck  contains 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  Alex.

Bo:: 94  1??otor^ot1^  Motorists, often wonder why their  tires blow out when the ca^ is  standing in the garage or being  driven along smooth pavements. The  fact is that tires frequently "do hot.  blow out at the time they aru injured! Often they run for several  hundred'or even a' thousand, miles  after being seriously bruised. The  cotton fibres, in the ruptured carcass  snap gradually, one by one. This  breaking continues, to weaken the  tire until the final- result in a blowout. f  The car owner,has' forgoten oftentimes all circumstances attending  the injury. Unlike the falling of a  building which is ordinarily preceded by creaking sounds and giving of  the walls, no" .warning is given to  the motorist until the blow out actually occurs. / Tire ��������� men. ' say the  principle" is much the same as wlien  an, axle of the' car breaks on a  smooth road. It may have'been half  broken for a long time, and h'.ve  even rusted ��������� before it finally gives  away.  When some object in the rop.d is  hit, drives sometimes wonder that  the tire does not blow out. But  they1 rarely remember these accidents' when the tire gives way hter.  Frequently such a blow-out is  blamed on a defective tire.  Guarding against tire bruises is  particularly important in the late fall  and winter. It is these bruises that  give the maximum of tire troubles  in the spring. The majority of  bruises' are not in running against  curbs and over sharp stones or  bricks, and over car tracks ' It pays  in safeguarding the tires" against  bruising to drive carefully especially   over  country   railroad  crossings.

While fruit growing was a well established industry in the old or provinces of Canada' 25 years ago, thi  trade, particularly for export, was in  a most unsatisfactory state owing to  lack of packing and grading regulations. At that time certain commercial standards were used which var-'  ied with the season and the individual judgment of ��������� the packer,,,and as  a result all grade marks had becomj  meaningless to the trade. Over-facing was also, a common practise.  The returns from apple sales m-  Great Britain- reflected the lack of  confidence felt by buyers in Canadian  packs., '  .Realizing that as production in-'  creased and distribution ' extended,  standardization of packages and uniform grading regulations were necessary if the fruit industry was to be  permanently successful, the Department encouraged this marketing necessity, and as a result', "The Fruit.  Marks Act" was passed in '3 901, tho  Bill being introduced by Senator E.  D. Smith, a well known shipper of  the Niagara district. The Act made  it compulsory for all fruit packed in'  a closed package intended, for sale  to be marked with the name and address of tho packer, the variety of  fruit and the designation1 of grade,  'the grade mark used being optional  with the packer. It also provided a  penalty   for  overfacing.  The Fruit Marks Act hast b-3cn  amended from time to time lo meet  the growing needs of the industrv,  and the evolution of the, Act Is practically the history of standardization  so far as the fruit history of Canada  is concerned.< The Act now specified  ail grade marks that may be used.  defines the grades, contains regulations with respect to imported fruil,  the filling of'packages, and the sale  of im'maiu're or decayed fruit. It  also applies to open as well as closed packages', and provides standard  packages for practically all kinds of  fr.uit grown commercially" in Canada.  The specifications for , these . packages .having been carefully worked  out by growers', package- .,manufacturers and representatives of the  Fruit Branch/ Previous to the standardization the multiplicity of packages in use created unfair competition as well as being deceptive to  the consumer.  Immediately after the passing of  the Act it became evident that some  machinery would be provided for its  enforcement.' The . Minister of Ag-  griculture therefore , organized the  Fruit Division. With eight inspectors' in the fall of 1901* the inspection service, has developed at the request'of the industry until,    during  the season of 1921-22, over sixty inspectors were .employed, vorking  almost entirely among the growers  and packers, not only inspecting the  fruit as it was packed, but also giving instructions in the best methods  of picking, packing, grading and  shipping. 'In 1901-02, , 814 inspections were made," while in 1921-22  che staff inspected 21,473 shipments.  The first'power spraying demonstrations in Eastern Canada, were arranged by the Fruit Branch twenty  years ago, and since then the Branch  has co-operated with the provincial  department of agriculture in all educational work leading to improved  orchard practise and to better methods of picking, packing, storing, and  loading -fruit.  Packing demonstrations with all  kinds of fruit and all varieties of  packages' have been part of the work  of the Branch since its inception.  In 1904 the Department arranged for  a western box-packer to introduce  that-mcthod of, packing in Eastern  Cannda.' Such..'demonstrations have  been continued from time to time  until a fair proportion, of the east;1  ern crop is now .being bcxed, although the barrel continues . to bo  tho pop.ular container in t;iat .territory. , .,,  '"Another factor in successful marketing is reliable information as to  source of supply and market conditions. Owing to' the perishable nature of fruits, its was recognized that  crop estimates and market intelligence should be included in the activities of the Branch. In 1905 the  distribution of a Monthly Crop Report was commenced, showing conditions in the commercial fruit,- districts, crop prospects and .. market  values in Canada and competing  countries.- This bulletin also includes notes on transportation matters and other items' affecting direct-'  ly or indirectly'the marketing of  fruits  and vegetables.  Since 19T4 a 'Telegraphic Market  News Letter has been issued seini-  .weekly throughout the marketing  season. ��������� This is published simultaneously at Middleton, N. S., Ottawa,  Ont., Winnipeg, Man., .and Vancouver, B. C. It contains prices telegraphed by members of the staff in  the marketing centres from'Halifax  to Vancouver and, during the export  season, the prices' paid on the large  markets of the United Kingdom as  cabled direct by the Canadian Fruit  Trade '.Commissioner in Liverpool;  also the wholesale markets in several-large centres of the United States  The .necessity 'for a special Fruit  Trade Commissioner in Great Britain was urged by the Fruit'.Branch  for many -years.! , The appointment  ���������was made, in 1916, .and the ;"result  has been that " Canadian '��������� exporters  have secured unprejudiced criticism  and valuable information as to the  ���������best method of meeting the , market  requirements of the United Kingdom  and Europe.  To deal with the many complex  problems arising in connection witn  both domestic and export transportation division was added to the  jorancix, in 1917, with the result that  the co-operation of the carrying companies was secured in improving  uie service for the transportation of  fruits and vegetables'. There has  been a gradual evolution of transportation facilities during the "past  few years which has made possible  the distribution of the Canadian  fruit crop from the , producing  centres to the most distant markets,  thus in' a measure keeping pace with  the development of the industry.  Special experiments have been mane  to 'determine the' proper types of  cars to be used under refrigeration,  ventilation and heating; the proper  method of loading cars, and the best  niethod of handling in transporca-  tation the different kinds of fruits.  Valuable information has' been gathered and many , improvements have  ;been brought about by the co-operation between Uiis division and ' the  carriers.  - With the improvement in grading,  packing and, marketing, due to the  enforcement of "The Fruit Marks  Act," with the development of cooperative packing and marketing,  large lots of uniform quality, grade  and variety to ,be placed on the market, and with the advancement made  in ' transportation conditions, ' the  commercial fruit industry in Canada is in good shape to face the period of general trade depression  which is the result of reaction after  the war years.  The Fruit Branch has encouraged  the establishing of pre-cooling- plants  in producing district for handling1  tender fruit in refrigerator cars.has  made it' possible to, move safely  British Columbia fruits of all kinds  tfas,far east as the Atlantic .Coast,  while Ontario berries, peaches and  other soft fruits'are being-landed in  perfect condition on the Prairie  ^markets. ,  .

Canada  realizes the value of worthy immigrants, no matter whence their  origin, and the first "tens are being taken to open her gates to all-  such.  1906���������In the revised Statutes of>Can  ada The Fruit Marks' Act, togeth- -  er with other    Acts    relating    to  fruit and fruit packages, was codified as Part IX of the Inspection  - and Sale Act.  1907-8���������The Act was amended limiting the grade marks that might ���������'  be used to numerals, No. 1, No. 2 ^  and No. 3. ,The No. 2 grade was ',  defined. The, use of a" "Fancy,  grade was' also permitted, this ,  grade requiring practically perfect  fruit. [  1913���������An amendment was made,  covering the application of the-,  Act to imported fruit, the kinds of"  fruit to which it was applicable, to:',  ' be prescribed by the Governor in"  Council.  1918���������Amendments were made eliminating the Fancy    grade, ..which  had proved impracticable, and pro-;  viding for a "Domestic" grade in  addition to No. 1, No. 2 and._''.

Inside the park the  choice of route ��������� lies between . the  north and south ,bank of the Athabasca River.  The whole idea which is being  worked out under Colonel Rogers is  to keep the park as nearly as possible in its natural state'. .No great  hotels ' where dressing for dinner  and smart dances are the feature;  will be built. Rather the government will erect a series of chalets,  where the simple life will be led.  We want the park to be a place  of rest and recreation,", said Colonel.  Rogers. "It is no holiday for society people to go to some place where  they must be constantly decking  themselves out in trappings of civilization."  Under the aegis of Agnes Laut.  noted Canadian author, a colony of  professional people has been established in the park. This will be no  refuge for the long-haired parlor  Bohemian, but a camp where hardworking men and women of the  learned professions may go to rest  and receive inspiration, Colonel Rogers declares.  Jasper Is the largest national park,  game preserves and- wild bird.sanctuary in the world, according to Colonel Rogers. It embraces 440 square  miles of varied scenery of a magnificent character.      ^  Its fame is spreading abroad and t  next summer will witness a tremendous influx of tourists, he believes.
