OVERLAND AGENCY AND SERVIQE STATION  Will Send Exhibits  To The Coast Fairs  The annual meeting of the Mission  Agricultural and Arts Association  was held in the Council Chamber,  Mission City, on Friday, January 23  The Secretary read the financial  statement, which showed a substantial balance on the right side. It was  decided to hold the Fair this year  on the 22nd and 23rd.  The directors were authorized to  make arrangements to send district  exhibits to New Westminster , and  Vancouver.  The following officers were', elected:      .  '  President���������W.  T. Abbott.  Vice-President���������S.  Smith.'  2nd  Vice-Pres.���������T.   F.   Brearley.  Secretary���������Rev.   C.

Bush, T.  Thompson  and J.  B.  Cade.  Considerable       enthusiasm       was  shown,and the desire was expressed  ���������to have the  1920  Fair the  best yet  held.  GOING TO HAVE A BAND  Gone To England  W. E. Scott, formerly deputy minister of agriculture in this province,is  to reside in .Vngland, where he assumes the important duties under  the Land Settlement Board in connection with the selection of ex-imperial service men who desire to take  up land in Canada.  A loan of $1000 has been made by  the department of industries by the  provincial cabinet to Messrs A. D'-  Arcy McBride and.W. Hunger Wells,  returned soldiers, for the purchase of  machinery for labelling cans and  packing.  It is impossible to build up a town  and make it of any importance without having a little music to help it  along, and with this object in view  the G. W. A. are now planning a band  Several musicians have already be en  secured, but more are wanted and  Mr. J. Aitkins will be pleased to talk  the matter over with any person or  persons who would wish, to join the  only band in the Fraser Valley.  This should be helped along with  as much vigor a& possible, backed by  some cash for the instruments, for a  iirst-class band in Abbotsford wo-uld  have many an outing. \  . An athletic association ��������� has been  formed for the purpose of encouraging sports, such as basket ball and  indoor hockey and the old drill hall  i has been secured for. .this purpose.  In the summer the,, association will  branch out'to. such as tennis, baseball and later ,football. The .idea is  to have all round athletics so that  the young men and boys will have  their latent energy  developed.  A comitttee was appointed consisting of Clifff;Springi J. A. McGowan  and A. C. Salt, the latter being named as secretary- treasurer.  The meeting was held in the G.  W. V. A', rooms.  PERSONALS  PROSPECTS LOOK BRIGHT  Arrangements are .being mad-3 for  a_-.St.'Valentine's dance-on the* 14th.  -THE LECTURES''ON FARMING  GORDON���������FA DDEN  Miss Margaret Gordon, daughter of  the late William Gordon, of Huntingdon, was united in marriage to Mr.  George Fadden, of Whatcom road,  Upper Sumas. The Rev. J. L. Campbell of Collihgwood officiated at the  ceremony which was held at the  home of Mrs. W. G. Cobley of Kitsi-  lano.  TRUSTEE   BARRET   RESIGNS  The Matsqui School board at a  special meeting accepted with regret  the resignation of Trustee Barter,  whose new farm at Peardonv'ille will  prevent his taking active interest in  public affairs for a time. The appointment of two new teachers was confirmed.  Miss Stewart, who was at Matsqui  high school until last year, when the  decline in numbers necessitated a reduction in the staff, has been secured  -for high school work at Bradner, and  Mrs. Pattison, widowed in the war, is  assistant'to Miss Forrester at Mt.  Lehman.  Vancouver wants to be made a  free port. As it is the only city on  the Pacific coast in British Columbia with a real future before it it  vould be a good idea to make it a fere  port if it would cheapen any line.of  Imported goods to the consumer.  The iioav B&nk of Hamilton at Port  Hammond is now about completed  and tho bank staff in honor of the  occasion arranged an Impromptu  dance on the nice hard wood floor,  before the furniture was put in.  ' ._i:���������v((;Grarid~;Forlcs "Gazette)-:-"-'"' '���������'"-"-  The unanimous verdict.of ranchers  as. to li.o practical' value of the lectures last week by professors of the  Facultiy of Agriculture of tho British'  Columbin University is a most satisfactory and encouraging feature  Dean CIcnont also commented en the  consistently large attendance, at 'each  of the sessions held. The test of Lhe  value of such lectures will come with  the practical use the ranchers will  make of the information thus gained.  Farming like every other pursuit  demands modern methods to obtain  results, and a persistent admixture of  "gray matter" is just as essential to  success in farming as in any other  enterprise. If the lectures will force  the ranchers into well-directed thinking that will lead to getting out of  ruts and substituting profitable for  unprofitable work they will have performed a great service to the whole  valley.  The speakers were able to collect  and present some facts concerning  agriculture in the valley that were a  surprise to most of those who should  havo known. They also pointed on!  that then������ was an inclination to wanl  assistance towards obtaining somt>  questionable advantage while real  opportunities were being passed up  They drove home the need for mixed  farming and the keeping of stock and  noted the fact that, although the  keeping of dair- cows offered one of  the most profitable resources of the  farm at the present time, and that  there was a ready market at itheir  door, only a handful of farmers kept  cows. The value of cows on a farm  was far reaching and should be taken  advantage of to the fullest extent.  The importance of co-operation  was also urged by the speakers. Farmers will never be as prosperous as  they should be till they combine a-  long co-operative lines for the protection of their mutual Intcrcste. This  principle is becoming more recognized throughout the different farming districts'of the province. If farmers would only drop all little local  rivalries and pealousics and pull together farming would be put on a  stronger and better basis.  The prospects'*, look bright for the  berry crop this coming season, at  least so far as the prices are concerned, some of the growers already signing up "at 20������ a pound, an increase on-  last year One berry king, one of the  largest is reported to have sold all  at that price/and no doubt the berry  mbnarchs'of this district will be getting a high price also..  On the north side of the river  there is a very big demand for berry  canes, and it is reported that the supply is.not equal to the demand. The  nurseries bought the canes at 2tf and  are asking 10^ for them now. At  least 50 per cent more will be put in  berries this year.  -���������The benclv^lands south and west of  Ahbotsfprd'.\-a.ce.;luat,as-good as any  for raspberries',and/ja-great deal mere  .acreage-'-should be' planted close <.o  Abbotsford.        - .1 *.' -  "j _;_  ABBOTSFORD AND VANCOUVER  CONNECTED BY TRAFFIC TRUCK  Flndlay   Will   Not  Bo  There  The annual meeting of the People's Prohibition Association will bo  held on February 18 and 19, but U  is not likely Flndlay will be there.  The meeting will be,held in Victoria.  The Vancouver and New Westminster fall fairs will be held on consecutive weeks this year as the result of the big get-to-gether meeting.  New Westminster has an automobile membership of over 300.

The Scotch social .held at the home  of Mrs. Hanah Fraser on Monday evening was surely a grand success for  such weather. ,,The house was filled  to its fullest capacity. Mr. Robinson  occupied the chair. J The Scotch programme consisted of Scotch songs .  by Mrs. Mclnnes, Mrs. Wreath, Mrs.  Rehburn, Mrs. Cou'tts,-Mr. McGowan  Mr. Downie. There were al3o other-  songs and instrumental music. "Jim-  niie" told some funny stories. Mr.  McGowan was the orator of the evening.

L111RARV  It Id A J) Y   TO  AID   MUNIC1PA LITIBK  Arrangements have been, perfected whereby it will be possible in future for outlying municipalities tc  have the advantage of making use of  the- splendid selection of volumes- ir;  the Vancouver city library. ' Tiie  scheme is the outcome of a general  plan formulated by the B. C. library  association and no doubt will be taken up by other large centres of population which are able to support  large libraries.  Any prganied municipality in the  district surrounding Vancouver, including the Fraser Valley settlements  and points on th-3. main line of the  C P. 11. on application to the city library and by paying t.a sum of $50  per year may obtain the loan of 100  volumes which may be echanged every three months. In addition the  Vancouvjr library will be prepared  to extend the same facilities to the  outside readers as it does to its own  readers in the way of loaning and  r>:serving books specially asked for.  The conditions on which the scheme  will be put into operation include  the provision of suitable housing and  a librarian to undertake the circulation of the books and their proper  care. In"the Vancouver city library  there are 85,000 volumes and it is  anticipated that many small municipalities will be glad to take advantage  of this plan. The selections to be  loaned will be of such a variety, as  to interest the readers in the particular district and whenever possible  will include any book3 especially requested by members. The services  of tli'0 library in    outlying    districts  Immigration'.figur-rs up to the end  :)f November show that the total  number of immigrants who 'entered  Canada during the previous twelve  .nonths was 114,7 08 of whom 5 4,-  J41 came from the United Kingdom  liuI '52,14 1 from the United 'Slates.  For the month of November 8,074  came in as compared with 3,19 5 in  N'ovemlier, 191.8. During the past  jight months 91,4 30 entered, the nationality being as follows: English  30,5 19; Welsh, 523; Scotch, 8,412;  Irish, 2,137; Americans, 37,721; and  other countries J-i.114. Practically  all the efforts of'the immigration department aro now being directed to  Jie United States and Great Britain,  with the main stress being laid on  the former. At present the balance  ot" emmigration is rather in favor of  the United States! but. it is pointed  out that the figures to that co.untry  are artificially swoollen by, .fact that  .nanyof those going over are disband  *id soldiers from the United States  who enlisted in the Canadian forces.,  The British government is now pay  .ng the passage to Canada of all war  .vorkers who desire to come to Can-  -td.a.

But Mr. Simpson, so many years a  busy man will not go away back and  sit down until his eyes get better but  will assume the management of a  tobacco and confectionery business in  Kamloops.

A  message  from  Cuxhaven  dated  October 1 stated that a strong agitation was preceeding in Heligoland for  separation from Germany and union  with'Great Britain, and that a plebiscite on  the question  was planned.  The people of:the island, according  to   the   Berliner  Tagblatt,   are. anxious to come again under the British  rule!.

Since the  Berlin  revolution the original inhabitants have  returned,  the island  has again  boon  iinown  open,   and   a   beginning  ha-  beer, made with the dismantling    of  ihe formidable fortifications as stipulated by the Versailles-Treaty.  to a btai  not down to a Price  A TRIHUTK TO THli DOG  ���������      ;   ���������  Hub Square  -Proves- Profii  Mission City  ass  The following plea was made by  he late Senator Vest of Missouri in  .he trial of a man who had wantonly shot a dog belonging to a neighbor.
