It has come to tlie attention  of this paper that the dates for  the Masqui Fall Fair and the A\:  botsford-Sumas Fall Fair fall  on the same dates, viz: Thursday and Friday, September 2U  and 23.  The secretary of the Abbots-  ford-Sumas Association was  communicated with over long  distance, and it appeared a surprise to him. He stated that ii*  arranging the dates he had advice from the department that  the two dates were vacant an a  he chose them. The Matsqui  secretary could not be gotten  over the phone.  It seems a great mistake that  both these fairs should be on  the same date as the districts  join each other. It means the  failure of one or both of them  and the dates should be immediately changed for the besi  interns'8 of both districts.

Spots on the Sun!
Spots thai n. few of thorn will
have some time in chasing. Eh.
The readers of the Vancouver
��� morning paper'were, pleased to
see that that paper took up the
question of the Sumas dyke. A
million to reclaim the dyke and
nothing to project Niconien Island! '"
Reward for electing Oliver in
Compared with most countries,
Canada has been free from serious industrial disturbances resulting in
strikes and lockouts. Inthis respect,
indeed, the Dominion has been most
fortunate, and it is not only a matter
' for national congratulation, but it
speaks well for the s'aneness, com-
monsense and general goodwill prevailing in this country, and an itidica-
��� tioh of the fair-mindedness of both
employer and  employee.
Recently, however, the printers of
Regina went on strike to enforce coin
pliance with certain demands' made
by them and which the employing
printers felt constrained to refuse in
view of the present business conditions and the steady decrease in living costs now taking place. Among
the demands made by the journeyman printers was that, a 4'1-hour
week should be adopted but that the
"old scale of pay for 48 hours - work
should be continued. Other demands
were for the .adoption of certain restrictive shop rules which would havo
the  effect of  decreasing production.
One such rule was a further extension of a very vicious rule already in
force���a rule which, while not benefitting the worker, imposes' a burden
of expense, not on- the employers,
but on the general public. It is a
rule which makes a demand for the
doing of positive and absolutely
waste work. To explain: If a merchant inserts' an advertisement in a
paper and at the same time orders
say f>00 or 1,000 copies run off as
a poster, the Union ��� rules prohibit
the use of the same type for the
double purpose. In other words,
the identical job has to be set up in
type twice, whereas once would, and
should, suffice. Thus double cost
is entailed, and the public have to
pay for it. The Union is laboring under the crazy delusion that they'arc
thereby creating work for printers
and providing employment for a
larger number of men. They forget,
that as the workers constitute the
great bulk of the buying public they
themselves are forced to pay for this
As a matter of fact they are not
creating more work and providing
���more employment; indeed experience
has proven they are restricting both
work and employment, because by
reason of the increase and unneces-
sar cost of work there is less done.
Any process" of labor which does
not produce something of value is
economic waste, pure and simple
The production of something for use
is the only way to increase wealth,
and it is' only through the increase
of wealth that more employment can
be provided. That is to say, wealth
is production. There may be prospective wealth, enormous potential
wealth, in the soil, in the mines, in
the forests', and in many latent forms
but such wealth is not worth so
much as a brass farthing to the
people of the world until labour is
brought to bear and this natural
wealth is' converted into things men
require. And if men's energies are
devoted to work which produces nothing they need, which is work merely
to make work and serves no good
purpose, then the source of wealth
are not increased but decreased. Th'1
whole world suffers, but most of all
the workers themselves.
The workers of the world need lo
learn the lesson that the first, requisite for. the payment, of tho good
wages they demand, and have a right
to receive, in that the employers
make enough money to be able to
pay good wages. Wealth, let it be
repeated, cannot be distributed Until
it is created, and whatever interferes with the creation of wealth interferes with the disf.ribhl.ion of wealth
in wages as well as in profits. When
Union rules interfere with the creation of wealth they interfere with
the welfare of labor as much as they
interfere with the welfare of capital.
As a matter of fact, they interfere
wih the welfare of labor a great deal
more than they interfere with the
welfare of capital, because about
ninety per cent, of the wealth created is' distributed in wages, and capital is well content, with anything like
ten per cent, of the wealth created.
It should, therefore, be the intelli
gent purpose, of the labor unions    to
meet any depressed situation in business by  increasing productivity and
profits. Whenever labor, by restrictive,,
rules,  or   capital  by   curtailing  product ion. interferes' with the material
creation of wealth, it interferes with
the material development of the race
and with the common possession    of
the   advantages   of   modern   productivity as far as each restrictive act is
��� There arc, says an American writer, two fundamental, facts to be recognized: First, that productivity is
necessarv for permanently high wages and second, that high wages arc es
scntial to general prosperity. The
less the productivity, the less' there is
lo be distributed in profits and
wages.-   That is reasonably obvious.
And since the vast majority of the
people of this or any other country
perity depends upon the prosperity of the mass, it is equally obvious that only liberal wages will
create general prosperity and the
general purchasing power,- which,
iir turn, mean's the prosperity of every individual and of every individual  business.
Therefore, let there be good wages
paid for good work, and let good
w0,.]{���really productive work���be
given .good  wages.���lOx.

Success brings success. If the industries already located - here prosper, others wii" come and more employment will be available for the
workers of British  Columbia.
It may appear startling, but it is
a fact that if all the insect pests ravaging our crops could be suppressed,
and all the plant and tree ^diseases
eradicated, and the increased revenue derived by the country thereby
could be tur'ned into the Dominion
Treasury, there would need to be no
question of taxatio. This idea is largely substantiated by the fact set forth
by the Entomologist of the Dominion
Department of Agriculture that a
conservative estimate'of the annual
loss in Canada to field, orchard and
garden crops' due to destructive insects is upwards of $200,000,000-.
As our authority says "To this huge
devastation must be added the enormous' annual destruction caused by
forest insects, stored produce insects,
etc." Upon this statement the Entomologist founds a well-sustained
argument in favor of the nrotectinn
of insectivorous birds, such as the
prairie horned-lark, the robin, the
��ninewliiit. despised crow, the red-
breasted Nuthatch, the western Manager, the Myrtle Warbler, the Chickadee, grouse, gulls, and many other
kinds. In the state of Iowa it has how

Most of them are single men, strong,  haidy  typos of   vigorous   manhood,  inured   to   the  extremes   of  climate  and accustomed lo hard work, They  are   a   very   good t type  of settler.

Wetton has had a varied  career, having served twice1 as a  volunteer in the South African War.  and later writing two books on his  campaign experiences.

While   in   England   on   the   last   of  these  trips at  the outbreak of th������  war, he immediately joined the "2nd.  King   Edward'3   Horse"   (1st.   Canadian Cavalry Brigade) as a trooper, and saw considerable active service in France and Belgium.    Twica  wounded   and   recommended   for   a  Commission, he was gazetted to tho  Devonshire Regiment, and early in  1919 joined the "Finnish Legion" in  North Russia.    Most of his time out  there he was on outpost duty with  his   Finns,   oftentimes   alone   with  them,   and   thereby   learned   their  language.   There he met Miss \Aini  Kauppinen of Rovaniemi, North Pin-  land, who had travelled hundreds of  niilcs alone to join her two'brothera  in the Legion.

A Captain Egan,  of a r/iupany of volunteers, asked  to be allowed lo have the horse, and  'break him.1 The General handed him  over to Plgan with the assurance that  he would break his neck. "Hannibal"  became entirely tractable, and once  saved the Captain's neck, when lOgan  was pursued by guerillas in the  mountains of" West Virginia. Horse  and rider soon became very much  attached' to each other.  The horse upon which General  Kearney rode when ho was shot at  Chantilly, was forwarded with his  sword to his widow by General Lee  showing the kindly courtesy which5  always characterized the Confederate leader.

July I 5.���������  At the monthly luncheon of the hoard  of trade a|. the Royal Hotel on  Monday the after-dinner discussion  dealt chiefly with letters from the  minister of public works and the  minister of agriculture in reply to  letters of the board of    trade re the  paving of the road    between    Sardis  and Rosedale.  In his letter, Dr.- King said that he  liad no knowledge of any promises  made by the - department of public  works re the paving of the road. In  any case certain preliminary work  had to be done such as had been carried, out this year, and the work  would.probably be proceeded with  next summer.  The Mission City W.

The purpose is to let the motorist  be sure he is buying the right grade  of   fuel.  As far back as 1909, the Austrian  government used a ping coloring  matter to differentiate between free  and taxed gasoline. Fuel for commercial purposes' was free of duty in  those days, while a tax was placed or  that used in passenger cars. The.  easiest way to distinguish one from  the other, when the oil was shipper;  tot lies ervice stations, was to color  Ihe fuel intended for passenger cai  sales.  By the use of cochineal, an insect  dye, the strength of the original gasoline is not diminished, automotive  engineers say. It is only when aniline or mineral coloring matter is  used that a sediment is produced and  the effectiveness of the fuel is lessened.  The question is often asked us.  "What do you think about a hereafter for animals?" The only answer  is to say that whatever we may think  we know nothing. Even .our own  future is wrapped about with so  much mystery that our hope of it. is  a matter of faith. It does not admit  of an unanswerable demonstration.  Humanity seems to have clung to a  belief in immortality from the earliest days of which we have record.  The world's wisest and best have  gone their way facing the darkness' at  the close of life's day'with this hope  more or less brightly burning, like  a lamp with which they trusted to  find the threshold of a house not  made with hands'.  Not a few whose names have been  written  high  on  the scroll  of fame  men like Butler and Agassiz, men of  ;fine intellectual  power and  unsway-  , ed by sentiment, have found nothing  in  philosophy or  science  to  prevent  ; their belief in a future  for the ani-  ; mal as well as for us.    Conscious of  ; the limitations of our knowledge, we  j still say that if love,  fidelity, devotion, pertain to that in    the    human  [I life which cannot die, why should wc  ��������� doubt  it  persistence    wherever     wy  meet it?    And then, unless there bo  some   future   where   tho   un measure-: I  sufferings of the animal world sha'l'  I find compensation for the undeserved i  I evils  under  which  they,  innocent ol !

It paved the way for and made  possible the great disarmament conference  of the  world  powers.  2. Its deliberations resulted in the  decision that the Anglo-Japanese alliance must be brought into harmony  with the covenant of the League of  Nations, which means' that the milli-  tary clauses of the treaty must be  eliminated, and it prompted the idea  of a conference on Pacific problems,  which, if it be successful, will make  the Anglo-Japanese alliance unnecessary.  |      3.

At the present  time four to five cars of berries are  rolling daily to points on the prairie.  The ".lality of the fruit is excellent  and from reports received as far east  as Winnipeg, the "berries are arriving in line condition and the trade  s  well satisfied.  Prices are not as high as the growers anticipated. Latest reports state  that the selling price is around $3.-  2~> and $:j.00 at destination.

With cost of picking at  8 ���������">(*��������� to .$1.00 per crate, crates at  .������.2{J plus hauling, and packing and  cartage to be deducted, there remains  only a small margin for the grower.  It has been estimated that it costs  from 7r,,< to $1.00 to produce a crate  of berries under present conditions.  This is actual cost and does not include an allowance for interest on  the investment or depreciation. If  the berry business it to be placed upon a paying basis there must- first  be a wider and more efficient method  of distribution; Berries should be  graded and paid for on their merits  and only first grade stuff be labelled.
