FIRE   BURNS HATZIC  STORE  (From Fraser,Valley Record) -  The Mission City Board of Trade  has now for the past three years been  asking our local representative, Mr.  W. J. Manson, M. L.A., who is now  at Victoria, attending the session   to  induce his leaders to bring forward a  bill to enable    the    unincorporated  towns like Mission City to be taxed  for the purpose of having a lighting  system, and the people being taxed to  pay for it.    Unless all" signs fail this  session is likely to pass again without  the deired legislation.       ���������*  ' The scheme put forward by the  local Board of Trade is thought by  many citizens to be quite feasible, but  there are others, including our worthy attorney-general, who shake their  heads with an unknown meaning of  suppressed wisdom of the awful doom  that would follow if, such an act did  come into force.  It is planned that while the provincial government assessor goes his  rounds each year that he levy a tax  for lighting purposes, the same to be  collected along with the  other pro  vincial taxes. After the first time  the question came" before the worthy  powers that be at Victoria now, a  draft of a bill was sent to the Board  of Trade that included the assessing  and collecting of a tax for lighting  purposes by commissioners to be appointed by the Board of Trade and  the provincial government. This did  not meet the approval of the Board  owing to the fact that there was no  provision made for the machinery of  assessing and collecting of the tax. -  The provincial government who  taxes and collects. the taxes of the  town of Mission City could easily collect and disburse the money without  very little cost, and the Board  has gone so far as to suggest that included in the tax there be enough  more to recompense the .government  for their time and expense. The tax  would only amount to a few cents  on each lot in Mission City, and is  considered here a perfectly feasible  scheme. But of course Attorney-  General Bowser wishes to force incorporation on Mission City by not assisting in this matter.  hews"1 and others.

THOSE BONDED MUNICIPALITIES  'Last week this paper quoted an  article from the Victoria'Colonist in  which it stated that the only municipalities in the' province with no  bonded indebtedness were Fraser  Mills, Langley and Pitt Meadows  Knowing that this was wrong we  called attention to the matter, and  this week there was received at this  office Municipal Statistics of the various cities and municipalities of the  province. Accordng to that statement the municipalities having no  bonded indebtedness are: Fraser  Mills, Langley, Maple Ridge, Matsqui  Mission, Pitt Meadows, Sumas Surrey., Coquitlam has a bonded indebtedness. ,  It would appear then that the Colonist and not the Inspector of Municipalities that had erred.

It would be the greatest boon ever conferred  on the province.    If this province is to take  its place among the sister'provinces of the,  Dominion and become s'elf-spporting in agricultural products something will have to be  done to assist in the clearing of the land and  bringing millions of acres under cultivation  within the next decade.    Our politicians and  our public men every time they appear before  an audience are very optimistic as to the future of this province.   Yet the areas brought  under cultivation during the past twenty years  is so comparatively small compared with the  growth of population that the province is a  large importer of all kinds of farm products  from a foreign country.    Our agricultural interests are not keeping pace with the growth  of the province in other lines.    True    large  areas of land, throughout the province   have  in the past twenty years, been made producing  bu! apparently not enough to make us independent of a foreign country, which within the  next few months might not be in a position to  permit her products to enter Canada until after the war.    It is not probable that such will  be the case, but   it is    within the range of  possibilities.    "Would it make any difference to  B. C, and would it be putting B. C. in a tight  place? We have enough land in B. C. that if  brought under cultivation would feed a population of several millions; but farming in B. C.  is a problem that the, poor man on the land  cannot solve alone.    In the prairie provinces  tilling the soil for the next year's crop ts an  easy matter compared with B. ,C. but the time  is coming,, and may be close at hand when no  matter the cost enough vegetables, fruit and  garden truck must be produced in this province to keep the population in B. C, and interchange with the sister provinces across the  Rockies of our.surplus in return for the wheat  and flour which is consumed here. ��������� '  Not enough att ention is being paid to farming in B. C, not because Barkis is not willing  but because the strength of Barkis is not equal  to the occasion. - It takes money to bring the  land under cultivation, and it would be right  and proper if government assistance were to  be forthcoming.  So far as the government of the present day  is concerned any land scheme legislation is  apparently shelved for the present; but when  eventually the scheme vof cheap money, at low  rate of interest on long term loans is given  the farmers of B. C, it is to be hoped that it  will not come from any Conservative party, or  from a Liberal party, if we ever have one, but  be a scheme supported by both parties, and entirely independent of politics.  .. The Kaiser has prohibited football between  his soldiers and the British. One would almost  suppose that the Kaiser would not be welcomed as a citizen of Coquitlam, where they not  only play football, but talk football,, every day  in the week excepting-Sunday.       ........,  Remember the needs of the Starving Belgians, and the work of the Red Cross Society.  It seems a pity that "the Vancouver Island  mines are idle and the coal miners in some  cases destitute, and citizens of the province  purchasing coal brought in from a foreign  country.  There is great talk these days of the annexation-of Mission City and Mission Municipality. The pros and cons have their enthusiasts  The matter is to be thrashed out at the Board  of Trade. "Show us" many people say, while  others do not need to be shown either way, as  they have already made up their mind.  Among the horrors of war which escape notice is that occupation of the Champagne  country by the Germans from which they  were drawn with no serious losses to the wine  producers.  It has been decided and declared that the  Munroe Doctrine protects anything the American people want it to protect.���������Prof. Leacock,  McGill University.  Von Hindenberg, means behind the mountains. Leave it with the Russians to make his  position fit the name.'  The Germans are now signalling with big  green rockets. Can this be another attempt  on the part of the Kaiser to win Ireland's favor?  ECONOMIC CONDITIONS IN GERMANY  Scarcely a day passes now without bringing  evidence of the stress under which Germany  labors. The economic situation is becoming  mpre and more abnormal. Food is still plentiful, but the grain reserves, according to the  calculations of experts, cannot last beyond  May, and three months of privation will have  to be endured before next harvest. War bread  in which fifteen per cent of the contents consists of powdered potatoes, is in .general use.  The newspapers of Germany are urging the  people of Germany to use preserved and tinned  foods as much as possible, because the demand  of the army- for fresh meat has greatly depleted the nation's stock of swine.  The raw materials of industry are growing  scarce. Cotton is now entering from America  with the consent of the Allies, but the principal materials used in the great electrical  industries have been shut off by the regulations respecting contraband of war. - Copper,  for example, is now $625 per ton in Germany  more than twice as much as the price in America, and supplies are so short that the government is probably forbidding the use of the  metal for other than military purposes. Rubber is another material greatly in demand by  German factories, and rubber is not to be had.  Leather is also exceedingly scarce, and the  price has risen abnormally. A substitute for  leather is now being manufactured, and is used  for such purposes as the covering of helmets.  Germany, it must be remembered, is no  longer in the main an agricultural country. It  is a land of great cities and bustling factory.  . towns. Notwithstanding the embodiment of  the mass of the factory operatives in the armies of. the. Empire when war broke out,' the  number of persons unemployed at the beginning, of December was over 16 per cent.,  whereas the highest percentage of workers  unemployed in times'of peace was 4.8. This  tremendous increase is due largely to the disorganization of industry through the cutting  off by the Allies of Germany's imports and exports. She lias not the needed materials to  keep her factories busy, and if she had she  would be unable to send the products of her  workshops abroad after she    had , prepared  them.  A Dutch expert, reporting on the economic  situation of the German people early in December said ,that the greatest losses had been  sustained by industries affecting machinery  iron, coal, textile industries, and sugar, paper,  and chemical industries. Most of these have  to a great extent made up their losses by increased orders for the army and navy. With  astonishing adaptiveness a capitalist group began immediately to manufacture articles  which allow big profits. In the reorganizat-  . ion two groups must be distinguished���������industries only requiring to shift the market for  their goods,, and those compelled to change  the nature of their productions. The first group  now works for the army. The weaving trade  is fully employed with the manufacture of military clothes. To the second group, which has  changed its articles of production, belongs the  Allegemeine Eliktrizitaets Gesellschaft at  Berlin. Instead of dynamos they are now producing metal buttons aiid other things necessary for soldiers. Siemens Schubert are producing all the necessities for telephone and  telegraph lines. Other factories, which before the war produced iron railings or sewing  machines, are now manufacturing shells; a  typewriter factory supplies the army with bicycles; the factory for photographic cameras  now manufactures leather belts for soldiers.  A chemical works, which produced nothing  but dyes for uniforms, are now making pharmaceutical articles, coffee, and beef tea tabloids. All these factories are now producing  articles which are needed for the soldiers or  the hospitals.  Despite their adaptiveness���������typically German���������practically one-sixth of all the industrial workers left in Germany after the ranks  of the army had been filled are unable to find  employment.���������-Globe.  against looting is very strict ��������� and  can, I believe; be visited with death  Our troop's are very good in', that  respect, as they shold be in.a friendly country, but we often visit farm  houses which have been deserted and  use them as dressing stations, and  the most precious thing,we can collect is a^shirt.

Tho Mayor directed  the crowd toward Alderman Sinytho's  thoatro and there the young enthusiasts, and every other juvenile who  arrived, wore treated to a view'of the  "movies", at Mayor Foote's expense.  The visit to the schools was designed  to extend the treat to ov'ory school  child in the city.'  At the Selkirk school whither' the  Mayor was accompanied by Trustees  Manning and Sturdy, 'the scholars  were assembled by Principal Ross in  the spacious corridors. , Mr. Foote  spoke to those littlo citizens for a few  minutes,1 asking tlioir co-operation  in making Revelstoko tho loveliest  city in the interior, by protecting all  its natural beauties of troes, foliago  and flower's, and by keeping its lawns  boulevards, lanes and streets tidy and  spic and span. To the teachers the  Mayor spoke a few words on their  great responsibilities in forming and  developing tho characters of those in  their charge. First impressions are  indelibly printed on childhood's memory. '.'It. was many years ago now,"  said Mr. Foote, "but 1 shall never forget the first day'my mother took me  to school and the pretty little school  teacher took, me on her knee and kiss  ed me. Of course I couldn't help but  like school and school teachers ever  since."  At the Central School where Trustee Taylor joined the party, Mr. Manning introduced the Mayor to the assembled children and'teachers. Mr.  Foote's talk was highly, appreciated  by'the children. ' In addition to what  he had said at Selkirk School, the  Mayor'announced that he* was planning some sort .of May Day celebration in which every child in town  could help.  At. the High School the Mayor excelled himself in his address to the  -classes united.in Prncpal .Paterson's  room. Realzing that only a year or  .two .would intervene .between' them !  and the stern duties of' life, he urged ���������  upon'them that they hold fast to high  ideals, and never be discouraged even  by repeated failures.* He himself  owed whatever,- success he had  achieved in business to his determined resolve never to give up..

Before leaving each school,  every  but we aro able to change this habit to some'exlont by pruning.  Summer pruning, if done at the  right (inio and moderately, will have  a tendency to produce fruit buds;  while on the other hand, winter pruning has a tendency to produce wood  growth.  Summer pruning is usually practiced on young trees which are:1 producing excess wood growth at the  expense of fruit spur formation, up  to about the sixth year. The time  to summer prune will depend a great  deal upon the different varieties and  the length of the growing season, as  we find some varieties grow niucli  later than others, and also our trees  will grow much later one year than  in another.  We should aim to summer prune  just before growth'stops, by pinching back or .cutting back part of the  terminal. Pruning at this time tends  to produce fruit buds. If you summer prune loo early, you will get  second growth, Avhich is tender and  will freeze back. If you summer prune  too late after growth is stopped, you  have Jost your aim, and summer  pruning then becomes a case of. early  winter pruning.  In pruning young trees, such as  apples, pears, plums and cherries,  which boar their fruit on spurs, it  is best to use the semi-pyramid form  or shape of tree. We fin'd that fruit  trees of this type will carry a crop  much easiar and of more uniform  size and color than the vase or pyramid form of tree. The vase or open tree is a very good form to use  for peach trees. The peach 4 tree  bears its fruit on one yearold wood.  Thus, in order to keep good strong  bearing wood, low down on our trees  we must prune our trees hard and to  an open top.  The success of our orchards will  depend, a great deal upon the- early  training of our trees. We should en-'  deavor, when possible, to secure one  year old branch trees. We will find  that the lateral branches on these  trees are growing at right angles to  the trunk. Head the tree to about  24 to 30 inches from the ground,  and select three or four- of the best  side branches; cut. them back to a  bud on the top side and about eight  or ten inches from the ground.. The  one year old .straight or. whip tree  when planted should be cut back to  a bud about thirty inches from the  surface of the ground. ' If good  growth takes place, we will get live  or six side branches out- from the  trunk the first year. We ..will find that  the lower branches grow at much  wider angles to the trunk than those  nearer the top; so remove one or two  of the limbs near the top, so as to  eliminate the weak . crotches; . star1...  your first side limb about fifteen inches from the ground, -and select  three or four of these side branches  well spaced on the trunk, and growing as near as possible at right angles  to the trunk. ��������� '     '������������������  This will form the framework' of  your tree..   Then cut your, side branches back to a bud on the top side,  and about-eight to ten luches from  the   trunk   of  the   tree.    Prune   the  leader to a bud towards the centre of  the tree.    The .leader should not be  allowed to become more than* a foot  longer than the side branches,    and  Medical Women  The war Is showing, not only that  there will be a demand in future for  women doctors, but that many of  thorn are e/Ilcient in all branches of  their calling.

PRUNING OF FRUIT TREES  IM������  We have several orchard practices  which are very essential in order  that we may be able to grow the  best commercial fruit. Pruning  is one of the oldest- of these orchard  practices, and a very essential one;  but without soil fertility, spraying,  and cultivation, pruning will be of  little'value. Our object in pruning  may be stated in the following ways:  To make the plants vigorous: to give  them some. desired shape; to  strengthen, the framework of the  trees; to make them fruitful; to allow sunlight and air and to regularte  the heat and sunlight so as to prevent sunburn; to aid in such  orchard work as spraying, thining  and harvesting, and unfortunately  in some cases, to get a supply of  watersprouts and firewood. In studying pruning we must make ourselves  acquainted with the general* principles, and we should make a special  study of the buds. In taking up  some of the general principles, we  find in many cases that heavy top  pruning will produce heavy wood  growth, and have a tendency to rejuvenate the tree, and on the other  hand too heavy pruing may develop  a- strong growth of "watersprouts,  which is an indication of a lack of  balance between top and roots, and  causes one part of the tree to live at  the expense of the other..  The growth habits of trees vary a  great deal. Some have a very close  and upright habit of growth, while  others are spreading growers. Some  are strong and others are weak growers. These factors must all be considered in pruning the different varieties.     ���������<���������  We find that fruit bearing becomes very much of a habit with trees  back to a weak side limb.  The pruning of your trees, after  the first year, and the amount of  growth to cut back, will be determined by the pruners. No fixed rule  can be followed in their habit of  growth.  With young trees up to about the  sixth or seventh year, aim to prune  to strengthen the framework of the  tree, and to. encourage fruit spur formation.   A *  We always find in our trees a number of small lateral branches which  are a foot or less "in. length. By allowing these small branches to grow  from the.terminal bud and not pruning.them back, a large portion of the  side buds will-develop into fruit spurs  By this-" practice we can force-" our  trees into bearing much earlier..  Sometimes we can ' let our young  trees go for one year without pruning back any of the terminal growth,  and"encourage fruit spur formation  all along the main branches. These  main branches cain then be strength  ened by pruning them back the next  year.  After .the trees commence to bear  prune to keep the trees well open to  allow the air and sunlight into them  to strengthen the tree and to thin  the fruit. Aim as nearly as possible  to let the fruit regulate the growth  of the tree.���������Paper read, at the Grand  Forks Farmers' Institute.  MISCHIEVOUS MOTTOES  ��������� Robinson Crusoe was the original '  optimist. Times looked bad for Robinson���������could, not-have looked much  worse. But he didn't say "What's  the use"; didn't lie down, whimper,  "k'ick, arid growl "at destiny.'"  No, Crusoe used .his head; he  thought���������then he thought some more  ���������real serious line of thinking, Just  what to do was the puzzle Crusoe  was solving. Finally'it came'to him  in a flash���������"I have it", said Robinson,���������"I'll advertise."  A thousand* miles from nowhere���������  a possible.buyer coming within-read- ���������  ing distance of his   'ad'   every few  years���������that was Robinson's outlook.  It was hard times, business depress- -  ion, a'stringent money market,���������also  what   Sheruan   is  supposed ��������� to  have  said about war.  But Crusoe; as before mentioned,  was an optimist,also a believer in persistent advertising.  He wanted a ship���������how would he  get it?. Answer���������"Advertise." And  he did���������flung a shirt from the top of  a pole.    - -..  The-first advertisement-brought no  returns.  But Robinson wasn't discousaged.  He changed the "copy" ���������put up another shirt. -Yes, times were^hard���������  awful hard; but Crusoe won out���������he .  got his ship:���������and he did it by advertising persistently.  Crusoe -was the original Optimist.  DON'TS FOR VISITORS  "Never leave a stone unturned"  Is an adage old, which lingers.  Try it, though, and you will find  That  you  are  apt to  pinch your  fingers.  Every woman thinks she's worth  her weight in gold.  As a matter of fact, women don't  think any more of their relatives  than men do.  Your neighbors have a lot'of nerve  to imagine that they are as good as  you are.  -/   Here are a few suggestions for the  visitor:  , Don't fail to let your hostess know  the day and the exact hour you expect to arrive at her home.  Don't take twro trunks when your  wardrobe can be packed in one.  Don't fail to use your own toilet  articles, even if the pretty .guest room  happens to have been supplied by  .jour hostess.  s Don't feel in duty bound to make  way with, all the house marked stationery and postage found on the  desk.  Don't use the handsome mono-  grammed towels for wiping off shoes  or removing automobile grease.  Don't be tardy for meals���������and  never be absent from the family  breakfast, if one is served.  Don't disturb the Whole household  by talking loud when coming in late  at night.  Don't continually allude to your  sister's perfectly trained children, if  there happens to be incorrigibles in  the family you are visiting. ���������  Don!t make it a habit of leaving  your personal belongings around the  house. .....  Don't under any consideration, ask  any one to remain to a meal without  first consulting- your hostess.-*._.  Don't fail "to remember the maid  who has rendered you any secial  service when your visit is over.  -V^-B^V-^^etti^fajHigSjPHE-y,  ... vrtfi     ABBOTSFORD   POS'I  ABBOTSFORD,   B.
