Ken worthy writing'to Mission City says:  "As far' as labour is concerned,  you cannot be worse than it is over  here. I am putting women on the  land   all   the   time.  "All the milking, hoeing, calf-feeding, pigs, fruit picking, hay bailing,  forest planting, small timber and  brush-cutting, timber measuring is  done by women now. Also most of  the harrowing. Women's farm wages  are an average of $5.5 0 per week  and they keep themselves. The government give them a suit of clothes,  and   they  have  to  s:&n  on   lor  one  year.  "They will have to do the fall  ploughing. They are very wonderful  considering they have never done ie  before. I am a sort of inspector for  the land army and I work all day including Sundays and travel all over  the country.     It is hard work.

Charlie Reed who recently recently returned from the front, is in  Mission City Avith friends, lie looks  fairly  well considering.  HONl-jy CROP WILL  UK SMALL  The crop of the lower Fraser Valley will be one of the smallest on  record, acording to an apiarist at  Cloverdale. Dry weather and smoke  from the bush fires is given as the  cause. ' r ���������  jbne of the largest producers in :tl^  Fraser  valley,   who   usually  gathers  around   two     hundred     pounds     of  honey per colony, says that the crop  lias ended sot' ar as lie is concerned.  Last year he obtained over 7 500  pounds, of honey from forty colonies.  This year his crop will be a failure  Mad June been a wet month the  story might have been different, but  the dry weather dried the clover  blossoms and consequently no nectar was secreted in the ilowers.  In addition, bees are not Aery active during smoky weather. In  some instances beekeepers will have  to feed their stock for winter unless  rain comes soon to make ilreweed  and asters secrete nectar.  IJUYS   A   MILKING   MACHINE  DEARTH   OF   HKKRY   I'JCKURS  The beautiful rain this week had  enlarged the prospects for a bigger  and better crop of raspberries for  this district. It was fair before oat  the day's rain was just what was  wanted.  In conversation with Mr. Laker of  the Empress Manufacturing' Company, yesterday, he stated that the  district was short of pickers, that  there would be acres of berries not  picked unless more pickers were sent  to the district.  Last week one grower was apparently unable to get pickers and wa3  busy by mail and long distance, and  each train has been expecteing them.  There must be something wrong  with the organization or tho district  would be flooded with pickers���������at  least enough to garner in the crop.  Next year food conditions may be a  little more tight .than they are this  year and a little jam may be just  ������������������what is. neded���������possibly instead of  butter.  Reports from the fruit districts today say that the mosquitoes are en  the wane. One person said they had  almost disappeared.  The question of the cheap rates  for berry pickers was mentioned in  our last issue, since .which Li mo Mr.  II. Beach has written to Miss Perr?  and now the pickers to Misssion and  Hatzic will travel at reudced rates.  Mrs. Pankhurst asks that all pacifists be blacklisted in order to save  the Russian women.  (I'Ycmi  the Fraser  Valluy Record)  In order to keep his business run  as it should be during these modern  times Mr. Chas. .Robinson the Mis-  sion-IIatzic milkman has purchased  a milking machine which has been  working now for about ten days and  giving safistaction, even with the  past warm weather.  Mr. Robinson informs us that any  of his customers may see this Inman  milking machine working if they  come along at the right Lime morning  or  evening.  The 'power to his elbow' has not  failed Charlie but he thinks the  power to the milking machine is a  hit more up to date, and saves some  worries.  Will Not Moyo Troops  As the result of negotiations which  have-'Lakon place between W. S. Xtol-  ston, manager of the .Vancouver Exhibition. Association, and Lieut -Col.

At the commencement of the  strawborry season, the car that was  provided was of the "Line" variety,  or in other words a risky proposition  in which to ship such a perishable  commodity as strawberries.    Not one  mate situation on 'the prairies, and  Ave are asked for a remedy for this  condition of affairs. The remedy is  always at,hand, and always in good  working order. Before looking to  the remedy,  look  to  tho cause.  The following is the reason for  the prairie jobbers jumping in and  biting off more than they could chew  of  the  Mississippi tomatoes.  This year the hot house growers  allowed a Vancouver concern to  handle the bulk of their tomatoes to  the wholesale trade, and this concern  stood so fast tot., heir price F. O. B.  shipping point that the prairie consumer was obliged to pay exhorbitant  prices  for them.    These  prices  cur-  shipment that wont forward in these(  cars arrived in very good condition,   j tailed consumption and still the Van  Eventually the ventilator car was  provided on No. 14, and from the  time that this car was in operation,  shipping troubles practically ceased.  Now in this week's Bulletin that,  emanates from your M. C. at Calgary it is suggested that you as shippers gamble with Fate by shipping  your stuff in these "Hot Boxes" a-  gai-.i and allowing the "Market Commissioner to be your referee, as to  which car is the better of the two  to take your chances with.  It Avas pointed out to you, that in  tho case of the Ventilator that the  berries arel iable o be damaged by  berries are Table to be damaged by  car is near.'ina-engine. , In the first  place the soot cannot get near on  account of the passenger locomotives  being oil burners on the mountain  division;' secondly, that the Ventilator vanes do net open to the forward  end of the car but to the rear, and  can onll fake in sot or smoke if by  somec banco the engine stalls or runs  short of gas and is obliged to buck  up Lhe hill.  So far as the ventilator car is con-  ocrned it is mechanically O K., besides absolutely automatic, and this  fact alone should convince the Market Commisisoncr that the shippers  know a little with regards to their  own business.  The "Line" car is a proposition  that may be all right if the employee  in charge is ��������� not too busy to open  the vents or does noL close the doors  in transit, but why take chances  when there is equipment devoid of  all risk. Wc all have seen these cars  arriving plugged up Avith sundry  merchandise from the coast, and we  knoAv that these cars cannot be  very cool when Ave see all kinds of  hardware, logging equipment, iron  pipe, etc., in this car.  Wholesale houses in Vancouver do  not generally pre-cool their hardware  before shipping, but in more cases  than not, leave this stuff lying out  in the sun for days before shipping,  and the heat so absorbed should  have a tendency to preserve the fruit  in transit if the shippers are willing  to take chances.  If the Comr/any do not wish to  withdraw tho ventilator cars, why-  take any chances on continued experiments? The shippers; have used  both types of car, and are perfectly  satisfied with the ventilator as provided by the Express Company.  The Market Comissioner as a servant of the growers should work only  in the growers' interest, and not in  the interests of the carriers, who  exact their pound of. flesh as tribute  for services rendered irrespective of  the condition of the fruit on arrival  at destinnalion.  Regarding Mississippi   Tomatoes   on  The Prairie Markets  This   Aveek's   Bulletin   contains   a  sion folks to Summas next year.       tlong tirade with regards to the to-  couver outfit stood pat. When Mississippi prices slumped to a figure sufli-  cicntly Ioav to allow importation, it  Avas only natural .that��������� the jobbers  would order out cars to place a modi  erately priced article on the market.  These tomatoes Avere ordered through  a broker, avIio if he were nor. an amateur would have advised his trade  that a certain quantity were on order  and should have lined them up together to pool a car at a time and  clean the market up before bringing  tho next car into the town.  Of course tho concern responsible  for this Avas not looking for anything  but brokerage and so long as so much  por car brokerage was reeeiAred, had  not any time to take care of their  customers' troubles.  The result-of this fool move Avas  not only to break the price of tomatoes to a vanishing point, for both  B. C. and U. S. A. Toms but caused an unnecessary loss of good food  and much money.  The remedy is tin's: Every broker  should be registered, and be responsible to the Food Board, through the  Customs House where he is doing  business. Before orders could be  confirmed, they should be passed  upon by the representative of the  Food Board at this Customs House.  This officer could knoAv exactly  how much perishable stuff was on  order- or rolling to his town and in  litis wa.y could regulate shipments.  If by any chance that this officer  considered thai. Lhe jobbers were not  doing the right thing with regards  !.o prices he Avould be right on the  spot Avith authority to act in any  manner as laid down by the Food  Board.  This is suposed to be one of the  main planks of the Food Board's  platform, but up to the present has  ;iot been exercised, and for no other  reason than Lhey have not found  Lhe man competent to handle the  job.  The action of the Vancouver concern in handling the hot house stuff  in the manner that they did was  ultra vires according to Lhe mandates handed out by the. food controller  early  in  the year.  The Food Controller's orders were  (hat wholesalers in food stuffs could  only  sell   to   oach   other   on   a   split  profit basis and this profit was laid  down at fifteen per cent. nett. It is  up to the Food Controller to see that  this profit Avas not exceeded.  The manner in Avhich these B. C.  tomatoes Avere handled was on the  the long profit to both Avholcsalers  at Vancouver and the prairies and  at no time during the shipping season could the prairie houses get  enough  to satisfy the demand.  If trust methods had not been a-  dopted at this side of the country,  all hte B. C. stuff would have to en  (Continued on Page Four)  (From Our Own Corre6pondent)  Mrs. Ben Nelson, Miss Evelyn and  Freida have gone to Vancouver with  .Mrs. Nixon, their daughter. '" Mn>.

Tuesday reminds us ol' the light-  less nights that are coming again.  In I-lat/.ic, and some other places'in  the Fraser Valley too numerous to  mention there is a movement for  biteless nights.

The writer was  terribly' grieved because he was forced (o diimjt :jII the. free copy furnished , hi m���������about;,.1.8 columns weekly-���������  at-., if he printed any of if he would  i;o forced .to ditcriiuiitafe,,something  iiinf would never do, of course,  hruugh the humor, however, (here,  is a. thread of common souse. Mere  is iho story as it appeared:  "A country editor writes: 1 print  about .IS columns of reading matter  a week. On an average 1 receive  weekly, wifb'a Washington postmark  about US columns of reading matter,  all with a, plain note on tho lop of  the proof sheet,'or in an accompany  ing  mimoographed  letter,, that  it  hi  my  patriotic duty  io  publish  it and'  I win the war.    'I want to help win the'  (war;   but   I  have signed contract's to i  publish   some advertisements  in  my j  paper and   my    subscribers    exepect  some   local   news.    Crowding  it any  'way 1 know how, 1 could print only a  little of fin's materiaI, j  "1-don't like to cast an aspersion'  upon one of the 2Gfi patriotic 'assoc-'  iatious   and   com missions   that  Siiiuli  (he material out by rejecting ils plea I  while  publishing   the, material   from  bl lions. , And who am J, to discriminate among the departments and bureaus of tho.government?

Men Nineteen and Twenty  It has come to the attention of the Government that there is a widespread  frnpression that young men of nineteen years, and those who became twenty  since October 13, 1017, as well as those who may become nineteen from time, to  time and who have .been or will be called upon to register under the Military  Service Act, are to be immediately called to the colours. '    .   ���������  This impression is quite incorrect. No date has yet been fixed for calling  upon such men to so report for duty, nor has the question been brought^ before  the Cabinet'for decision. In 'view of the need of.labour on the-farm, it is most  unlikely that consideration will bo given to the matter until after the harvest is  over, although of course tho Government's action must be determined primarily  by the military situation.  There is ��������� no, further obligation incumoent upon young men of the ages  above mentioned who have.registered or who do "so hereafter, until they receive  notice from the Registrars.  Harvest Leave.  Some enquiries have been received as to the possibility of granting harvest  leave to such troops as may be in the country at that time. No definite assurance can be given on this point as advantage must be taken of ships as they  become available. On the other hand, harvest leave will be given if at all  possible.  Leave of Absence on Grounds of Extreme Hardship.  It is desired that the Regulations respecting leave of absence incases of hardship should be widely browa'and fully understood. Such leave will be granted  in two cases:��������� (a) where extreme hardship arises by reason of the fact that the  man concerned is cither the only son capable of earning a livelihood, of a father  killed or disabled on service or presently hi service overseas, or in training for  such service, or under treatment after returning from overseas; or the only  remaining of two or more brothers .capable of earning a livelihood (the other  brother or brothers having been killed or disabled on service, or being presently  in service overseas, or in. training for overseas or under treatment after his or  their return from oversea.-:); brothers married before 4th August, 1914, living in  separate establishments and having a child or children not to be counted,  in determining the fact that the man is the "only" remaining son or brother)  (b) where extreme hardship arises by reason of exceptional circumstances such as  the fact that the man concerned is the sole support of a widowed mother, an  invalid father or other helpless dependents. .       ���������  ��������� It is to be noted that in all the>'e cases the governing factor is not hardship,  loss or suffering to the individual concerned, but to others, that is, members of  his family or those depending upon him.  Procedure to obtain leave of-.absence. ������������������  A simple, system ior -dealing with these cases has been adopted. Forms of  application-have.been supplied to every .Depot Battalion and an officer of each  battalion has been detailed whose-duty it is to give them immediate attention.  The man concerned should on reporting to his unit state that he desires to apply  for leave of- absence on one or more of the grounds mentioned and his application  form will then be filled out and forwarded to Militia Headquarters, Ottawa^ In  the meantime, if the case appears meritorious, the man will be given provisional  leave of absence for thirty"days so that he may-return home and continue his  civil occupation while His case is being filially disposed of.
