The following- report is from the  pen of a Mission City fan;  ,  The'first game was to have been  pulled off at' 10:30 a. m., but as the  visitors did nbtput'inah appearance  until the noon,hour, this game was  cancelled   and   thereby   disappointed  a crowd of fans,who were desirous  of seeing the morning game.  -  The afternoon contest was started  on the,advertised hour and resulted  in an easy victory for ,the local boys  by. a 12-4- score.    The game in itself  was   a  good   exhibition   of  amateur  ball  and  provided, many .thrills  for  the   spectators.    Mission   City's   two  batteries, who divided the game between them, had everything required  to win, while the visiting battery-did  not have as good a day.  ��������� Percy Cox started .on the.mound  and had lots oh the ball all through  his .five innings' and had the visiting  heavy hitters-bating out-of his hand.

It was both interesting and instructive to see the pupils go .through their, drills and to  listen to  and  see- the  classes each  do  their' little  part.    There  was  a  splendid program given  by the pupils of the school, among which the  following  were of ^ note:-  v    Master  DeLair,  Latin  song.  Bessie  Varlson,  Norwegian - song.  Annie Brown, recitation '  Misses Seldoh and/   Case, Duet.  Elsie Edmonson, Recitation.  Annie Brown, recitation.  .  Tom Kerr,  recitation.  Miss Healy, Song.  W. Livrseage, Piano Selection.  All in all, it was an enjoyable afternoon,   arid   the   teachers,  .Misses  Law  and  Thompson,   deserve  great  credit' for the manner in which the  children       conducted       themselves.  Cake and ice cream was served before the closing hour and was very  much apreciated by those present.  On Friday night last the baseball  boys gave  a concert.    There was a  good turn out and the following excellent programme was rendered:  Miss, Ayling,   Piano   Selection.  Mr. Utley and partner, Coon Song.  Miss Duncan, Song.  Miss "Law, Recitation.

The  carnival shows which  - have been" open all' week have attracted hundreds of visitors and are  among the best ever seen in-.the  northwest.

Good  pui-ses  are  offered, and  some  BEEN ESTABLISHED  The outcome of the numerous recent meetings of the fruit growers  from"Hatzic and Mission District is  that an association, has been formed  with the object of better handling  the fruit of this district and in fact  as many, districts as can\be induced  to link their name with the new  organization.  At the last meeting, held Monday  evening, a name was chosen for the  association, that- of ."Fraser Vally  Fj-uit Union." This name is riot entirely new as,several years ago an  organization bearing .the same name  was launched but has since ceased to'  or run. Mission did no better in  their half and the inning ended with  a blank score board. In the second  Abbotsford were again shut out, but  Rbdgers, for Mission started things  when, with Wells on base he slammed the pill far - out into the, field  scoring Wells and himself.  In the third Abbotsford got their  first score when by bunching a couple of hits and one or two errors they  got two runners" around. Mission,  in their half also scored two runs on  good clean hits. Both teams scored  in the fourth, getting one each and  Abbotsford got another one in the  next frame. The sixth inning was  the turn of the game when nearly  every local batter-on the team got  around   the   paths.    Six   runs  were  were about  sixty men on hand to do a day's'free  work on Front Road. The brick"  works shut down for the occasion  and teams and helpers from Matsqui  and surrounding district son arrived  Mr. Pace, Gifford, superintended the  work. Everyone worked with a  vim and kept the' nine teams. busy,  even the youngsters joined in and  gave a. helping hand. In all there  were about two hundred loads "of  gravel - spread, this being ��������� supplied  by Mr. Purver. About six hundred or  so yards of road were graded and  graveled.    -  While the men were. thus busily  engaged, the women were also .doing  their noble share preparing dinner  and supper for the workers on, the  Indians .of, British Columbia has resulted   in  a  volume  in   the  Native  Races' of the British Empire series,  and whose photograph is among the-  many photographs of people and of  places,   chiefly  old  time,   which  illustrates these attractive ages.  .

On the other hand the-local boys  hit the ball hard but not at opportune  moments, but got another runner  around.  The eighth and ninth^'inning was  featured by' several hits by both  teams but came at times when there  was no one on the paths. The game  ended with the above mentioned  score.  No particular player on the local  team could well be singled out ac  excelling his team mates, they all  played a good steady game and all  did well at the bat. The Abbotsford  team, on the other hand, made several glaring errors and these were  quickly taken advantage of by the  local boys.

Had there been several good rifles  available at the time, of the attempt  there Is a probability; that... one , or  more of the fleeing;- bandits ...could  have been ..brought;, to., the ���������ground.  However, the provincial .authorities  in their wisdom have seen fit to prohibit the possession of fire arms without permits being taken out for  i. them, the result of .which is that very  few rifllcs. are now .in possession of  tho.se., in:-ia position to. use. them to  advantage and the man who does  own one' does not let it be generally  known, lest; he, be,required, to ,enrich  : the provincial excheques for his, priv-  ��������� ilege.     r*.  , The., argument has often been; put  ,; forward/that a-daw  abiding citizen  ��������� has no occassion to-carry arms.
