'Smith and Abbott,  I take this opportunity of thanking my many customers for their  liberal patronage during the time  I have been in business in Abbotsford in the Pioneer Store.  Messrs. Smith and Abbott are  good men and experienced and intend carrying a large stock of  general merchandise,- and I 'would  bespeak for them the same kind  support, extended to me, believing  that all dealings with them wilt  prove both profitable, and satisfactory to all who favor them with  their orders.  The Pioneer Store has always  been a' favorite with the people  Qf Abbotsford and district, and under the new management just as  excellent values will be given customers as in the pa,st.  M. Lv McPHEE.  " Thebuc'nens of the Pioneer Store  has been' -purchased from .Mr. M.' L.  JvIcPhee by Messrs. B. B. Smith-of  Cloverdale   and' C.  N.   Abbott- 'of  V.-meouveiv  The  /new,, firm   took  possession: on  Monday*   last    ur/d  will cater to the public under, the  firm   name   of Smith 'and .Abbott.  Although   a  stranger'to the pen-  pi 6 of Abbotsford, Mr. B. B. Smith  .Is known we'll and favorably wlfcJi  people lower down the valley, own  ing property and d.oingbusiness at  Cloverdale   and  LadnerV   Mr. .Ab-  Bott comes from tihe' city of'Vancouver where he was well known  as   one  of the  young progressive  business men. of the city.  The new firm, intend, shortly f.o  move to the barber shop and pool  room next to Mr. J. J. Sparrow's'  feed store while the present premises will be torn do'wn and   a hand  some ' building   30   x , 80   and"   two  story .high, erected.  When complat  ed the new premises will be modern and up-to-date in all respect,  thus  enabling the firm to display  goods  to  the  advantage, of their  customers.     ....... "&?%,.���������-...-. .  The Post on behalf od the people  of the town  and district  extends the hand of welcome to the  new business, and with all wish the.  new firm every..success.  Mr. McPhee has noJt yet decided  what he will da, but will probably  remain in town for some lime.  "Leu's" friends will be pleased to  hear of his success no rn.af.tcr  where he may decide to locate.  THE SKIDOO NUMBER  Talk about luck in numbers.  Some people do not let on that  they believe in 13 as an unlucky  ber or 23 as the skidoo number.  Over in Sumas there was a week-  paper known as the Sumas Times.  It was started <by our old friend  who now has charge of the Chast  Tribune, but was recently edited  by Mr. D. Swing Ricker. "Swing" is  a ' gentleman and a scholar but he  could not pass the skidoo number  which appeared on or about June  20th. Of course it is not nice to  knock a fellow when he. is down  and out of the newspaper business  as he cannot very well get back a-  gain, but hereafter David will n-  void anything that has 23 in connection with it.

Ware Copeland received  the silver spoon as reward forbid  excellent shooting; A silver spoon  is given away with each shoot to  the person obtaining the highest  score. Dr. Swift has established  this method of securing interest iii  the weekly shoots. Geo.. Clark was  the first winner of a spoon. Ti3  said someone got a. leather medal  ���������a real leather ornament���������a short  time ago, for integrity and general  {deficiency. Once fa man winga  leather medal he is entitled to the  next, but wlfen a man wins a  spoon he cannot again win one un  less he is 12% per cent higher than  any of his compatitors.: New mem  Tiers are always made welcome and  taught how to do it right.  ' The'Suiuas Council held their reg  ular monthly em'eting-on Saturday  last, all members of the council  being present.  Minutes of the previous meeting  read  and f I/opted.

And after some  discussion it' wa sdecided to grant  him $10 to open-the Hertz road  and. allowed to do his,statute labor,  or on the same road. ,  Mr. and Mrs. Fadden both addres  sed the council on,the ditch question which has been an aggravating, question to-both, the Faddens  and the council. Two. committees  have gone from the council to look  at the work, .an offer has been  made for settlement some months  ago, but still the dispute goes on.  The contract was read and discussed, and the committees' reports  read and. discussed, '-but still the  matter is not settled. A letter was.  handed in to the "council asking  for.. a-, .settlement,-but-notfti^gv Will;  satisfy the council but a completion of the work' to the at-  isfaction of the council.  Major Pottinger was there about  a road out from his,property. As  that gentleman was reasonable in  '.his requests he will have ai road  as the council are to pass a bylaw to enable him -to have an outlet.  ��������� Mr. Fooks was there too but when  he saw how hard the council "was  working he laid over his troubles  for another meeting.  Mrs. Campbell interviewed the  council re matters brought up at.  last' meeting and after discussing  the matter the council decided to  ������jass the following resolution; "Resolved; that as the mountain road  is a diversion of the road through  the Fooks' place that the council  take no further action in the matter.  Lindsay Russell,  the Vancouver  real estate agnet, had his solicitors write the council re thel   resolution   passed    at     a     previous  meeting   re   subdivisions.       Th,j  matter was laid over for the pre?,  ent as the council believe they ai .-  dght in having ,the roads in subdivisions - made acceptable  to   Lno  council  before  taking over  s.ani<--  The threat of law did n'dt intimidate  the  honioi'iable body  and a:?  there   was   considerable   stake   at  hand the council will pr.obaibly lot  the furious gintleman  secure   his  ends  through the medium  of the  law,  Some months ego 'the council  voted $100 for the Abbotsford exhibition to be held this fail, but on  account of lack ��������� of'funds this grant  was vetoed on' Saturday.

In   the , morning  t|he  'train  conveyed   many residents  of, Mission  City and other nearby points.

JULY  12    1912  ..uiihj hji'^wl j; ���������  It seems a pity that the Sumas  Council has seen fit. to cancel the  donation of $100 voted to the Abbotsford Fair some months ago.  The present Btate of affairs might  warrant the action of the council,  but a little delay of several months  would not have inconvenienced the  men who, guide ithe destinies of  the prairie municipality, and the  fact that $100 to assist matters  would have proved very effective  in bringing to a grand finale the  efforts of those who had the exhibition in hand, is   a  fact.  However, the, act is done, and  while the people of our town may  regret the present trend of disorganization, yet it is to be hoped  that no serious setback has been  handed out-to 'the second annual  fair to be held in Abbotsford.  man may, by fair or foul means,  obtain a position as inspector, it  is no reason that he should walk,  boldly into a school and assume  all the knowledge capable of preparing the yoxing ide.a'i'or the ordinary duties of life.  Many a radiant' flower is hprn  to blush unseen, so does many a  teacher take up the duties at uic  opening of school each morning  with a full sense of his responsibility, who dreads the visits of in-i  spectors, .for the simple - reason  that the inspector has not enough  horse-sense to recognize the concentrated effort of the teacher.  Oh, ye inspectors! When it comey  to classifying inspectors according  to act o fparliament, pity the poor  teacher who has to endure the  ideas of a .provincial and a municipal inspector, and still prove  initiatory incentive to the young  lives under her care.  It look sas though there would  be another dominion election held  next year. The. Borden government are apparently shaping matters in such  a  was as to be pre-  After a fight which has extended for over six 'months and w...  has been carried on through a dozen different departments until eventually reached the board of cni.-  trol in Montreal, the Canadian I-'au-  ific Railway company has a,t lasL  gi anted the Electric Lumber company a permit to build a spur  from their tracks to the mill. The  main difficulty has apparently been  the crossing of the British Columbia Railway right of way, this how  ever has ail been straightened out  and the new spur will be built immediately. The spur will branch  pff the main "fine at Fourth street  and will approach the mill from  the east side.

The Electric Lumber Company's  plant is now working to capacity  an dthe orders already on hand  will necessitate the plant working  in full blast for some time to come.  The class of lumber being turned  out is of a high grade and is rapidly taking its place as a standard  of excellence in the prairie market.  The movement to increase the capacity of the plant is under consider  ation and there is every indication  It was always a fcumbug to have  an inspector come t o a school and  upset the pre-arranged work for  the day, and upsetting both teachers and pupils.  The principle of inspecting ihe  work of teachers and pupils maybe all right in the way >of giving  jobs to a few favorites ,of the  government, hut for the benefit of  education, ' generally speaking,  there is nothing to it,.except.that  it proves very annoying.  ��������� The incorporation of the Huntingdon Sash and Door Factory nas  been completed and the new company is now ready to go ahead  with construction. Owing to < tn*>  Irush of business in the lumber in-  fdustry, it is impossible to gett he  necessary timber to commence ^'ti-  Htruction prior to the fifteenth oi  the' month but arrangements have  been made to employ a large crew  of men in order that the work ot  building the plant may ,be compit-t  cd as rapidly as possible.  The clearing of the site for the  plant is being done this week a iu  the location which is immediately  north of the Electric Lumber Company's plant, will be ready for    !i  carpenters  next  week.   The crew  of  men   which the   new company  propose to employ .will add matei  ially to the population of the town  and   should   the policy   of  giving  preference to married men be carried out, there should be  a   number of new   houses   required;   for  their  accomodation.  In addition to ordinary,sash and  door work, the new plant will have  a complete 'and up-to-date box  factory .which will handle the ev^  er growing demand for fruit boxes, etc. The lumber available for  manufacturing purposes ia such  that the firm will not be compal-  led to import any of their material.���������Star.

There is'always a lot of ambition  for perfection in the men and women who undertake the education  of the young, and it has yet ta bei  proven to the editor of this paper  that the visits of inspectors to the  schools have proven enough incent  ive t oboth teacher and pupil to  compensate the parents for the  money paid in taxes to cover the  handle the largely .increased volume of trade which the company  has   in   sight.���������Star.

The'  From present plans the Domin-  inion   government   will   introduce  and put through at the next session   of parliament the  Redistribution Bill based upon the new ceu-  sus.   The   figures   have  been   finally   collaborated.   It   is   probaDle  that the bill after being presented'  will be referred to a special committee of the House which will limit the different constituencies and  determine the units of representation in rural as distinguished from  urban divisions.   When the lastie-  distribution, Bill was    before    the  House not   a   great deal of opposition  was encountered outside of  the committee, where there was con  siderable compromise.  , This time it may be different, as  the East will lose  ten or  twelve  seats to the West, and there is   a  striking  similarity in  the  population of constituencies in the list of  those liable to lose representation.  In  the say of  which will remain,  and which will 'be wiped out, will*  be   a   somewhat delicate task for  thethe  committee and. the House.  The bill ;will.be passed next session  beyond  a  doubt, as in view of .the  important matters of policy to .be  determined the government might  p.ossibly consider an appeal to the  country advisable, before the parliamentary term is fully expired.

Among the coins Napoleon had  minted, were some millions of 5  franc pieces, and he determined to  popularize these In an extraordinary  way.

SHNAVY  History Tells of Many Disasters but  All Were Under Service Conditions, and Loss Loner than  French Record. !  While the British Fleet during its  long history has notoften experienced  disasters, of anything like the magnitude of those which" have happened  in,the .French Navy, it too has a regrettable' record of accidents. It is  worthy' of note, however, that they  have been nearly all accidents at  sea ,,..and. not in port. They' have  taken place when the ships were sallr  Ing,.'most ly under service conditions.  The most serious of all, the foundering-of the armoured ship Captain off  Finist'ere. in September, 1870, with  the loss������of 483 lives, was attributed  to low..freeboard and faulty construction'generally; while the loss of the  "Mediterranean flagship Victoria and  358 lives in June, 1893, was the result of a mistaken order by the Admiral.In command, which caused his  own Vessel to be rammed and sunk by  the Carhperdown. In the wreck of  the: 'torpedo-cruiser Serpent near  Cape ...YINano in November, 1890, 173  men. were drowned; and when the  new turbine destroyer Cobra sank  ������������������owing'to structural weakness ���������  In   the   North   Sea   in   October.  .1901,  Ruby  Superstitions  The superstition that tho ruby  changed colour at the approach of  danger to its owner was, in'bygone  ages, a popular belief,' in which,  among others, tho great General  Wall'enstein, shared. Having got wind  that a conspiracy against him-was  en foot, he; acting on the advice of  the astrologer Seni, Invited die suspects to a supper, at which to each  guest was served a dish sprinkled  with powdered rubles. In the gulso  of a servant Seni passed round the  table, and having made pretence to  note the hue of tiie crushed gems,  assured his master in a whisper that  tho danger was Imminent. On this  warning the credulous. .Wallcnsteln  acted with promptitude;, several of  tho guests were arrested, and on '.he  following day led to execution.  At the time of the conquest of  Mexico by. the Spaniards' certain of  Cortes' officers, angered at .the. refusal of a wealthy Mexican to disclose the hiding-place of his possessions, of which a great portion consisted of emeralds, devised a hideous  retaliation.- The-hoard haying b . m  discovered, - the. conquerors invited  their' prisoner and his' family to a  banquet, at which the dishes were  sprinkled wtlh the wretched' man's  gems. These the Spaniards compelled  him, his wife, and their children, to  swallow with th'eir food, making-sure  of their recovery by.murdering- their  luckless guests, ' whose -bodies.-.were  then opened and the booty regained.  A Professional. Secret  A lift-man employed for many years  at the Capitol in Washington was  brought much into contact with the,  newspaper correspondents who were  regular visitors. One afternoon, _as.  three of them left the lift, Mr. Payne,  a deputy of New York, stepped- in, and  to him-the lift-man, said, "I can't .un-r  derstand those .newspaper.-men, ..sir.  They puzzle me." "What's the trouble  with .them?"- asked Mr.-"Payne. "Well,  Mr. Payne, every day they, ride In this  lift' one felfow will turn-to another  and say, 'What do yon know to-day.?'  And the other fellow will answer,  'Not a thing!1 What, do you know?'  Then the first fellow will say,- 'Nothing!' And yet, Mr. Payne, the-papers  are just full of news every day. It  beats me where they get it!"  A Time For Everything  A    well-known    Scottish    architect,  was  travelling in  Palestine recently,  when news reached him of. an  addition to his family circle.-. The happy,  father- immediately  provided  himself,  with,some water from the Jordan to  carry   home   for   the. christening   of  the infant, and returned  to Scotland.  On the Sunday appointediforthevcere-  mony   he   duly  presented  himself, at  the church, and sought out the beadle  in. order   to  hand  over  the precious,  water   to   his   care.    He   pulled   the  flask.from his pocket, but the. beadle  held  up  a  warning hand,  and came  nearer to whisper: "No the noo,.sir;  no  the  noo!

In the tropics the  tremendous evaporation .induced bj  the blazing sun causes .the water to  be much more salt than it is in  higher latitudes.'For about, 30 degrees  both north and-south of-the equator  the waters-of the world's oceans, are  of an exquisite-azure. Beyond ��������� these  latitudes the blue fades .and changes  to green, and In the Arctic and Antarctic Oceans the. greens are almost  as .vivid- as .the tropical blue.  The extraordinary, blueness of the  Mediterranean has two causes. One  is that very" few large rivers of fresh  water run .into this sea; - the' second,  thatrthe Mediterranean:, is practically  land-locked, and,- being exposed-, to a  powerful sun, .evaporation, is great.  By actual test the waters of the.Mediterranean are heavier and more s>lt  than: those of the Atlantic.  ��������� But blue and green are not the only  colours, observed, in the- world's -sea?  and oceans. In January, 1909, a river  of yellow water,' three miles wide and  of . enormous - -.length- ��������� ,was .- observed  running., parallel with the Gulf Stream.  It,stretched .from Cape Florida tc  Cape Hatteras, and was undoubtedlj  caused by some" tremendous submarine upheaval, probably :of a volcanic nature.  Again, about nine- years ��������� ago, ��������� the  sea turned almost black off a large  portion of the California coast. The  whole: of Santa Cruz ������������������ Bay;-'assumed  this extraordinary inky-hue, and fish1  Ing came abruptly to an end. In this  case the darkness .seems to have  been caused by millions of ...tiny  animalcules, known as whale food.  The.dull, reddish tint which is occasionally < seen in ;the Red Sea, and  which has given that sea its name,  has a similar cause. The water, becomes full of microscopic algae ���������  tiny weed.  China's Yellow. Sea Is usually supposed to owe its origin to the flood  of muddy, water which its great river  pours Into it. But here again modern  soience has proved that living organisms are responsible for its peculiar  tint. - ..,-���������'  Occasionally, and for some, cause as  yet undiscovered, great areas of the  ocean turn milkwhite. In March,  1904,. the passengers and crew : of a:  -Japanese merchant vessel steaming-at  night ..between* Hong Kong and Yokohama ran into a snow-white sea. It  was an opaque, phosphorescent surface, but an expanse of pure snow-  white, having.a dazzling effect upon  the eyes.

That war was, signalized by the  loss of an American frigate, but also  by what Lord Nelson declared to be  "the most bold and daring act of  the age."' . The frigate Philadelphia  was one of the vessels built for the  war with France, which ended almost as soon as it began. .She v.as  on the Mediterranean station, and,  under Capt. Bainbridge, wont aground  on an ��������� uncharted reef in the harbor  of Tripoli while chasing a prize. The  officers and men were captured and  eon fined in dungeons. Thence Bain-  hrk'ge managed to send word to tho  Americans, to destroy the Philadelphia, which had' been hauled off and  manned  by the Tripolitans.  This  enterprise   was  conducted   by  Lieut. Stephens Decatur and,a volunteer   crew.     Decatur   performed   his  task   of   great   danger   and   difficulty  with 'complete   success.    The   Philadelphia was captured, but, of course,  it   was   impossible   to   take   her   out.  She was set ablaze and the Americans  sailed    away    with    only    one    man  wounded.    It was  a  little  later  that  the   bashaw   was   compelled   to   make  peace   at   the   cannon's   mouth,   and  since  then   the   States  has  had   very  little interest in Tripoli, as It lies far  outside the range of their commerce..  A    few    years    ago.   an    American  artist,     who     was     spending     some  months   In  Tripoli,   hired  a  diver to  go down   and   bring   up  some  of  the  wreck  of  the  Philadelphia,   which  Is  plainly visible in  fair weather.

Young Chambers was far too active  and of too ambitious a spirit to remain entombed any great length of  time, and one fine morning, to the  delight of more than one little urchin  in Lanark, he packed his grip and  started for Ottawa in search, of more,  strenuous and remunerative employ-  met.   He got the job all right, and,  A Sportsman of ^o������e  Adam Beck figures prominently in  all that concerns "the sport of kings."  Here are his hobbies in descending  order of importance ��������� his family,  his ideal, his horses. Both wife and  child are as fond of horses as Adam  Beck himself, and they make'a handsome trio on the frequent occasions  when they seek pleasure and. relaxation on the quiet bridle paths that  lead from Springbank to London.  Madison Gardens know tilie Beck  thoroughbreds, and world-famous  Olyimpia has aplauded the favourites  of 'his, stud. Adam Beck has never  yet succeeded in landing the King's  Plate,   although   he   has   more   than  the soft, thin skin of our toes just  where it lies close-to-the bone, with  scarcely any padding between'. The  skin, in places, where it is padded,  can stand occasional pressure very  we'll without injury, but the case is  different where the skin is practically  just, over the bone. If the skin did  nothing, it would be worn through in  such a case. Therefore it tries to  protect itself in- circumstances to  which it should never -have been exposed,  and   the  result  is  the corn.  A corn is due to a great thickening  of the thin, horny layer which is  found in the skin everywhere.. It. can  only be really cured by removing the  cause which produced it. We. can  keep a corn in check by paring "away  the horny; material as it gets thicker  or by putting something on it which  has the same result, "but we shall not  cure the corn until ivp >.ease to apply  the pressure which excites and irritates the horny layer of the skin to  thicken itself. Corns are named from  the Latin- word, cornu, meaning a  horn; and the horns of some animals  are also made from the horny layer  of   the  skin.  while the hours were long, the work   once pushed the winners hard.

Scotia "to On'-"  tario,  making 'his  home  at Renfrew,  and   there  his  home  still,  is,   though"  his    working    headquarters , are    af  Montreal.  Since   that   first   contract, he   has  been connected  with  the  building oi  practically every piece of railway oi  Importance in  the .Dominion.   He assisted,  for  instance,   In   building  the  Kingston and Pembroke Railway, and  the      Northern      Pacific      Junction  Railway .    in      the     Nipissing     district;  the Baie des Chaleurs Railway  in the extreme East of the Dominion;  the Central Counties .Railway in Eastern   Ontario;   the   Crews ..Nest   Pass  branch   of   the   Canadian   Pacific   in  British' Columbia;   the   Midland,   the  Richmond >' and   the    Inverness,   and  part of the Halifax and South Western Railways in Nova Scotia;  the La  Tuque branch of the Quebec and Lake  St. - John  Railway;   a big section  of  the Canadian  Northern  in   the  Prov'  incft' of Quebec, and Quebec, Montreal  and Southern Railway.    In' the building of the National Transcontinental  he has taken such a large' part thai  his  contracts  run,into  some  fifteen  million, dollars.  But the carrying out of these big  contracts has formed but a part oj  the development work in which Mr  O'Brien has figured. Pie has dbn������  much in the development of the lumber industry, and he was one of the  first to realize the significance of the  discoveries of silver in Cobalt. He  got in on the ground floor there, and  is owner of the O'Brien Mine.  As showing how wide is the range  of Mr. O'Brien's vision it may be'  mentioned that he is now the active-  president of a company which Is  building a railway to develop the  Gaspe Peninsula, while 3,000 miles'  west of that scene of activity, he it  taking the initiative ln a project for  the development of coal in the  YellowUuud Pass Country.  The Age of Fisb.  Until within recent years there had  been ascertained no trustworthy way  of finding out the age of fish.   It has'  been shown that mere size does not.  indicate the  age..  Reibisch,  Helncke,  and others have discovered that many,  of the bones,  scales,  and  otoliths ol"  fishes have annual age-rings, resem������  bling   those   ln   tree   trunks,  and   by  means of these Professor Wallace and.  others have now determined the' rate"'  of   growth   of   plaice,   showing   thai  some specimens attain the age of 25,  or even as  much  as ; 29 years.    Age  can now be correlated with size an.o  weight, although, it appears that the  sexes have a different rate of growth^  Some people think they work .halpLi  because they get easily worked' ui'1  about other people's work. ��������� -  \W  :~.:zi TESS ABBOTSFORD POST,  Mr!

Keep the gasoline tank and all  gasoline pipes free from Bediment.  Above all, see that there is no sediment in the carburetor.  Renew your supply of ��������� gasoline  at frequent intervals, even though  it may be necessary to purchase  only  a gallon to fill your tank.  On long trips take an extra can  filled With gasoline. The regular  supply is sometimes improperly estimated, and it may run short between stations, where it is impossible to obtain for  a  fresh supply.  Before starting out each morning  be sure your gasoline tank is fiin  led. It is a good plan to carry a  chamois skin an'd have the gasoline  strained through it. This removes  water and other foreign mattei.  HANDLING RED RASPBERRIES  One of the most luscious fruits  grown is the red raspberry.. It is  a prolific bearer, always, when  placed upon the market an go^'d  condition brings a good price, and  there is a great 'demand for it in  every section, of the country. The  one. great drawback the raspberry  grower has to contend with js its  perishableness, for .under ordinary  conditions it softens and moulds  within a very short time after  picking, and decay .then soon sets  in, making it unmarketable".  Investigation showed that the  prime reason for early softening  and decay was improper handling  of the fruit in picking,' Berries irn  properly handled, (after holding  four days in a refrigerator ca:,  showed aloss of 1.4 per.cent,white  those carefully handled reduced  this loss toO.l per cent. After six  days in the car the losses were 6.2  and 0.2 per cent respectively. After eight days in the car, these  figures had risen to 22.3 and 1.7  per cent.  One day after withdrawal the re-  suits were still more striking.
