J. Sparrow's' advertisement elsewhere i'i  this issue our enterprizing citizen  has seen an opportunity open to him  which at. the same time will fill a  felt want in this community which is  going so extensively into the poultry  business. To meet this demand for  space which this growing industry  demands Mr. Sparrow has had an  addition of 50x50 feet added to his  food store, and announces" that he  will handle poultry and eggs.  Mr. Sparrow as a business man  needs no boost from this ' paper, as  he;has, with long residence and fair  dealing, made an enviable name for  himself with the farmers of the district and the business men of the  town. But his latest enterprise ia  to.J)e commended, and that it will be  appreciated by "the poultry* men" goes  without saying, as some of those  prominent in the business have been  anxiously watching" the completion  of the building.  iThe opinion among the holders of  small areas of> land is that it is not  the safest method of doing business  to put all their beans in one bag,  and raise berries. Shpuld an unfavjr-  able season, like the present, come  often the berry grower would be' up  against it completely. Poultry raising goes well with the raspberry  culture, and now that one our businessmen is in a position to handle  poultry and eggs new energy will be  added to the already thriving industry. ���������  MK.  MILLARD   IS   ELECTED  AS SCHOOL TRUSTEE  The annual school meeting of the  ratepayers' of Abbotsford and district was held in the school house  on Saturday evening with a small  attendance. -���������  The chief business of the meeting,  was the election of a school trustee  "��������� in  the place of Mr. J. R. Shortreed.  ; Mr.  R.  H. Millard was the unanim-  ' ous choice of the electors;    and Mr.  ' A. Thornthwaite was appointed ari  auditor.  The sum of $7000 was voted for  school  purposes    for    the    ensuing  ! termi and it is    proposed to secure  ! the services of one extra teacher, so  as a third year High School can be  I carried on here. This is the* first  ratepayers' meeting to be held in  the new school house, which is one  -of -the-finest in the Eraser Valley.  The. addition of a third year High  will mean a very valuable asset to  the scholars -of the district, who up  to the present have been compelled  to go to Matsqui or Vancouver to  complete  their  matriculation.  IS FINED UNDER  APIARIES ACT  CLOVERDALE, July 18.���������Fines  totalling $50 and the usual court  costs' were levied against Wilfred'M  Smith, a South "Vancouver beekeeper, by Magistrate H. Bose in Clover-  dale police court- yesterday on the"  charges laid by A. W. Findlay, assistant provincial apiarist, under the  Apiaries Act. Three' charges , were  heard, but one of leaving combs in  an exposed place, other than a hive  containing bees, was dismissed. Tn  the other two of failing to report the  existence of disease in the apiary'and  ���������of moving bees from one locality to  another without first - obtaining n  permit from the provincial apiarist,  of  $2 5  and costs were inflict-  were the outcome of the  discovery by provincial apiarists of  an outbreak of American jjpul brood  in the apiary of Mr. Smith,- at New  ton. Yesterday, both sides were represented by counsel and all three  cases were the occasion of lively and  caustic tilts between them. Mr. IT.  J. Sullivan of Now- Westminster  prosecuted, while Mr Hamilton Read  of Vancouver represented the defendant. The eases attracted considerable atf en I ion, the court room being practically filled with witness**  and spectators.  MOTOR     TOURISTS  ENTER TO 0143  The Huntingdon point of entry is  rapidly gaining in favor with motor  tourists, judging from the large  number which have been' passed by  the officials at this point since June.  During the first 10 days of the present month, a total of 6143 passengers were registered entering , the  province. This included Americans  coming in as well as Canadians returning home.  ��������� The Sumas Reclamation Scheme  is claiming the attention of no small  number of the tourists and a large  number of requests for information  as to the location and extent of the  area, the successfullness of the  scheme and the best way to get to  it, are being continually answered  by officials.  fines  ed.  The cases  :    HUNTINGDON  Mr. and Mrs. A. Munroe and family who have been residing on the  ranch of Mr. Blatchford, have moved  to the farm of N Mrs. Atkinson, near  Kilgard.  The wide circle of friends of Mr.  and .Mrs. R. Thompson of Vye Station will regret to learn that they  will move to Vancouver next week  to take up residence there.  The blacksmith business, in which  Mr. Thompson has been engaged  will likely be taken over by another  man.  Mrs. Davis' two little daughters  have returned from a visit at the  home of Mr. and Mrs. Pettipiece' of  Vancouver.  Sometime ago when the people of  Abbotsford awoke .to the fact thai  on the previous night there had been  inon in Abbotsford'who cut the telephone cable, probably with the intention of- robbery "in the town,, all  were surprised. The would-be robbers were caught and the question  of better protection for the town  I was for the moment lost sight of.  Previous to' this when Mr. Lee's safe  was blown open gossip about die  matter drifted, but here again was  an incident that shows that we  needed better protection.  Now again when the store of another merchant has'been broken open  and such a large value in goods taken  conies up the question of more police  protection. ,  All   these   three   acts'     mentioned  above have    happened    within^ ^ .the  short spn'-.o of a few months, and'it is';  just possible that before the end of:  the year there may be other incidents  that  will  bring  this  matter forcibly^  to the average citizen, for the loss to,  one citizen of the community means-  "a loss to all.    A'very special effort,  should  be made, on' the part of -the"_  board of trade,    backed    by   all    its-:  members and those    who   .-are    not  members/to so represent to the provincial     government    that a    night  policeman will be.added to the present police    protection.--   It is absolutely needed.  Then comes up the question of a  better lighted town. A dark town is  a menace to any community. It costs,  money to lights town, it is true,  but if it helps, to prevent loss it is an  acquisition.- '"'Across the border w.e  find that Sumas is a well .lighted  town. Matsqui is a well lighted  town. Recently Mission City has  joined those who believe in having  the streets lighted. Why should Abbotsford, which is as important as  any one of these go longer without a;  few lights' if not in the outskirts of  the town, at least in the business  centre? In the excitement of the  evening previous to the cutting of the  telephone cable, you will remember  that it was reported that one person raiu.in behind a certain'building  and was lost to view. This would not  have happened if there had been  street lights at corners.  With better police protection and  street lights the citizens of the town  could go to bed feeling a greater degree of safety than at present. Incidents, with a view to and robbery  are becoming so frequent that no  stone should be left unturned until  such time as the two requirements  mentioned in this article are accomplished. Several citizens have been  interviewed this week in regard .to  the matter and they have expressed  the wish that the Post should use  its columns to place the necessity before its readers. ' A public meeting  in co-operation with the board of  trade has been suggested.  STORE TS BROKEN INTO  WEDNESDAY MORNING  RERRY  PICKERS  ARE,       ENTERTAINED  An enjoyable entertainment was'  give to the berrypickers at the L. L.  Curtis ranch on Wednesday evening,  when local residents went out in cars  for the occasion.  Among those who assisted on the  programme were: George F. Pratt,  Mr. Snashall, Lloyd Vannetta, Mr.  West and Rev. A. H. Priest. The  numbers were much appreciated by  the gathering. .  Mrs. IT. Tuck of Toronto is visiting her brother, Mr. Chas. Sumner.  She is making a round trip from  Toronto to Los Angeles. It is seventeen years since Mrs. Tuck and Mr.  Sumner have seen each oher;  Mr. Oscar Ellingsen of "-Matsqv.i  has joined the Pat Burns' staff at  the Pioneer Store. This department  will now be able to keep up its reputation for courteous and prompt service throughout the district.  Services will be held in St. Math-  ew's Anglican Church at Abbotsford  every Sunday night at 7:30. Rev. A.  Harding Priest, vicar.  The departmental store of F. J. R.  Whitchelo was' broken into in.- the  early hours of -Wednesday morning  and goods to the amount of nearly  five hundred dollars taken away; As",  yet there is no clue to the robbers.,  Mr. "and Mrs. Whitchelo had,mo-,  tored to Vancouver on Tuesday, and.  when' they arrived home at about  midnight, they visited the store and  found everything alright, so it is  thought that the theft was made in  the early morning hours.  AGRICULTURAL ASSN.  ARRANGES  FOR  FAIR  A meeting of the Sumas-Abbots-  ford Agricultural Assn. was held in  the Bank of Montreal Chambers on  Tuesday evening. The attendance  was very small, and It was' with difficulty that any definite plans were  made for the annual fall fair.

A. BATES, Editor and Proprietor  FRIDAY, JULY'20,   192?,  Recent Legislature  Affecting Agriculture  Resume   of   Events   and  Enactments   by   recent  DurinR- the  Pant     Veai  Affect Agriculture.  Legislative  Parliament  'They  as  ��������� (By the Hon. W. It. Motherwell)  An effort has been made, by not  altogther   disinterested   parties,       to  belittle the net results of the recent  session of Parliament.  Speaking more particularly with  respect to agriculture, I may say that  1 cannot recall any Session of Parliament since Confederation that passed more beneficial legislation on behalf of agriculture than the one recently prorogued. True, five months  was a long time to spend in performing the work but that is one of the  prices we must pay for groups in  Parliament,.all of whom have to  have their say.  A number of Acts have been passed such as "An act to amend and  consolidate , the Acts respecting Live  Stock" and ���������" "And Act to regulate  the sale and inspection of Fruit and  Fruit containers,"' which can be  merely referred to here as containing very important and up-to-date  legislation in their respective fields.  The same may be said of the amendments to Feedng Stuffs Act and the  Dairy Industry Act, the latter of  which provides for the prohibition  of the manufacture and importation  of filled butter,"filled milk and filled  cream���������three pernicious practises  that were quietly but persistently  establishing a foot-hold in Canada  to the great detriment of the dairy  industry-  In addition to this important legislation affecting one of our chief  corner stones ,'of Canadian agriculture���������dairying���������was the fight to a  finish during the last Session on the  question of whether the prohibition  of" the manufacture and importation  of Oleo would be again reverted to,  as it existed for thirty years prior  to-1917, By a non-party vote f  fifty-four <to one hundred and twenty  ty'-five "Oleo, for the^'time being,, received a "solar plexus blow that will  take some recovering from. Nothing  daunted, however, the packers' professional lobbyist was an anxious  inquirer around the corridors the  week following the vote, doubtless  with a ,view to renewing .the battle  at some later date.  The report of Dairy Commissioner  Mr. J. A. Ruddick and Mr. W. A.  "Wilson on their return from New  Zealand and Australia, coupled  with all the before-mentioned beneficial legislature on behalf of the  dairy industry, makes the last Ses-  se'sion of Parliament an outstanding  one, so far as the dairy industry of  Canada is concerned.  '.Although the removal of the British Embargo on Canadian cattle did  not require legislative action on the  part of the Canadian Parliament, it  did on the part of the Imperial and  Canadian Authorities���������hence, properly referred to in this article as  one of the advanced steps taken on  behalf of agriculture during the past  year.  ,| The removal of the ��������� British Embargo against Canadian cattle has  had a greater direct "result in improving the farmers'^, market that  any other single move that has been  accomplished daring the past few  years.  Canada was in . the unfortunate  position of'being largely shut out of  the only two available markets for  her live cattle���������-the American  tariff  factory settlement, of the case,    was  only concluded  the     'morning after  ���������the  Uoyd  George     Government  had  resigned.  A new Government took office in  Britain, and then for a time if  looked like anolhor year's' delay. A  special Session of tho new Parliament'was culled in November to pass  the Irish Mill. The Canadian Government pressed to have the legislation  removing the Embargo enacted at  this special Session, but the new  Government urged that, it had just  taken office, that this Session was  for a special purpose, and that the  Embargo legislation should remain  in abeyance until the regular Session after the first of the year. It  was only after repeated and persistent urging on the part of tho Canadian Government that this question  which had been of .such long standing was finally solved by the British Government passing an Act removing the Embargo, which came into effect April 1st of this year.  There is not a live stock man in  Canada but recognizes' clearly the  tremendous advantage it would have  this .market last  calamity it would  not    available '.his  and the British Embargo accomplish  ing this end.  An agitation has been carried on,  both in Great Britain and Canada  for a number of years for the removal of the Embargo, and a great  many people "on ' both sides of the  water have given' valuable assistance  in this effort, and not a few of then-  claim that the removal of  the Embargo Is entirely due  to their efforts. But to say that  a, great many people helped in bringing this about, is much nearer the  truth of the matter.  For.the last two or three years,  while it was- generally expected that  the Embargo.would be ultimately-removed, it was of vital interest to the  business of raising cattle in  that it should be removed quickly,  and the delay was* not only disappointing, but it was ruinous to the  cattle business. The present Canadian Government not only acted  promptly, but effectively, in this  matter, and when the Ministers of  the Government and the officials of  the Department of Agriculture entered into a conference with the  members of the British Government  and officials of the British Ministry  o;f Agriculture, they had a very  difficult .task, on their hands. They  accomplished ��������� something, however,  of real importance for the Canadian  farmer when" they came to a    satis-  been to have had  fall, and what a  live been  were it  year.  Mention might also be made o\'  the granting of a certain bounty on  twine and cordage made from hemp,  for the purpose of establishing a  hemp industry in Western Canada���������  a movement well worthy of a moment's consideration.  Canada last year became famous  by having arrived at the stage of  being the largest exporter of wheat  in the world. In the face of this t  does seem a mistake to longer continue to depend upon foreign countries for the twine with which to  tie nine-tenths of this crop. Hemp is  a product that can be grown successfully, almost luxuriantly, in ma..iy  parts of the West'and East, with or-  without irrigation. It grows freely  in this country, and should supplr  unlimited quantifies of raw material  for the successful establishment of a  hemp industry, the future' production of which for both home consumption and export no man can estimate. As important as . this should  be to every Western man, strange to  say, only three Western Members  supported it.  Following the reduction of freight  rates by the restoration of the Crow's  Nest Pass Agreement, important leg  islation has been passed designed :���������>  control and regulate lake rates,  which soared to such alarming proportions last Fall.  The personnel and work of tH.?  newly appointed Royal Grain Enquiry  Commission, presided over by Mr.  Justice Turgeon, is another indication of the desire of the present Government to serve agriculture faithfully and well.  The increase in the Estimates of  over half a million dollars for the  Eradication of Bovine Tuberculosis',  twenty-five thousand for further experiments in the exportation of chilled beef and ten thousand fc"r experimentation with the dehydrating of  fruit, all speak for themselves and  indicate a further desire to grapple  with first things first in the solution of Canada's' many agricultural  problems.  Live stock men generally will  greatly appreciate the valuable iru  portation of the various purebred  breeding animals imported and selected personally by Mr. Archibald.  'Director of Experimental Farms.  These animals are intended for distribution among the various Experimental Farms', from which farmers  may replenish their breeding stock-  to advantage as desired.  ;A question of more than usual significance to Western agriculture  was the three-year Canadian National Railway Construction programme,  passed by the House of Commons  and approved of by the country generally, more particularly by the  West. Imagine with what consternation it was learned that the irresponsible Senate stepped in and thwarted the will of the people by giving  this railway programme the six  months' hoist As if to add insult to  injury, some Western Senators have  the audacity to say (as per Senate  Debates) that the Government .so  enacted this legislation that it-would  court the,disaster that befell it.

Five tons of paper were consumed  in publication of this book, and to'  lay the pages of the book end to end,  they would cover a distance of 840  miles. Ten toiis of type metal- were  used in the; production of the book.  The press work'on the book consumed 5500 kilowatts of electricity.

ECONOMICS OF POLITICS  .The sixth annual edition of Wrigley's British Columbia Directory,  containing 2020 pages and giving a  complete Directory of the entire  Province, and complete city directories' and house guides of'both Vancouver and Victoria, is just issued.  The British Columbia section gives  the names and locations of 2425  separate and distinct cities', towns,  villages and settlements in the province, giving a directory of eac'i  place, including all business and  professional people, employees, farmers',       fruit-growers,        lumbermen,  Wheat at Chicago has fallen mi:  der a dollar in "price'and- American  farmers may lose a total of $600,-  000,000 on the 1923 crop. This  means that the purchasing power of  American farmers will be reduced to  practically nil and that production  in subsequent years will be seriously   affected.  Farmers in Western Canada can  have no guarantee that a similiar  economic tragedy, will not befall  them until co-operative marketing is  adopted generally in the West and  they are able to market their wheac  by co-operation at point of consumption rather than market it individually at point of production.  Until the western farmer prospers, Canada cannot prosper. The  only protection Canada can offer to  the incalculably valuable farming  industry is co-operativie marketing,  it is the first duty of the government  to see that every Western farmer pro  duces his grain by scientific methods  as cheaply as possible and is then  enabled to sell it for a little more  than it cost him.  Western Canada should have the  benefit of the best brains money can  provide to work out a- workable cooperative marketing plan for Western wheat.  Aaron Sapiro of San Francisco is  the recognized genius of co-operative  marketing on this continent. He ha,  formed co-operative groups in California so successful that growers who  hitherto were only receiving 7 cents'  of the consumer's dollar are now receiving 55 cents of it. By introducing the proper systems of marketing  lie has raised the standard of living  J  Hub Square Mission City, B. C. ,.:  in  whole  districts'  States.  He could do the same for Western  wheat���������-and he should be invited to'  do it.  In seeking relief the West has organized for the economics of politics  which has helped no one. It is time  now to organize for the economics'  of grain.  Only; by applying the soundest  principles of the economiics of grain  through some -co-operative system  can the Canadian West guarantee itself against the disaster which has-  overtaken American farmers and  look ahead for the first time along  the road to permanent prosperity.���������  Sun.

This  output was composed of 76,300,000  sockeye salmon, 2,300,000 spring,  1,700,000 coho and 3,000,000 chum.  Distribution was made in the various watersheds in the following  proportions:  ' Fraser River, 36,800,000; Skeena  River, 14,600,000; Rivers Inlet, 14,-  20,0,000; Vancouver Island, 17,700,-  000.  The greater part of the output has  already been planted on the more  important spawning grounds of the  province, biit early 19,000,000 are  being retained and fed and will not  be liberated until they have attained  some growth.

GOOD MONEY'IN' GOOD FARMING  \  REDUCED   RAILWAY   FARES  FOR VANCOUVER FAIR  Word has been received from the  Canadian Passenger. Association advising the Exhibition Officials that  reduced Railway Fares will be in  -force for' visitors to the Exhibition  and will be placed on sale from August 9th to 17th, the return limit being August 20th. The rates will be  a single fare and a third for a return fare ticket. These rates coupled  with an extensive publicity programme will undoubtedly attract  many visitors to Vancouver during  the Fair. . '  INE years ago Canada's national ��������� debt was about one-  third of a billion. It is more  than two and one-third billions  today.  :  Our debts "have greatly increased -=- our revenues must  also go up. The farmer has to  bear his share of the increased  burden. That" means he must  increase his revenue.  Complaint has been heard  that farmers under present  conditions in Canada cannot  make farming pay. And yet  many thousands of Canadian  farmers do make it pay.    :  How Is Et Done?  Patient and industrious "carry  on" will do wonders, but something more is needed. Too often  "patient industry", is coupled with  ''dull persistance": in. poorly  thought out methods.  /Farmers today more than ever,  must plan ahead, as well as "plug  along"; indeed they have no option, if they wish to succeed.  Co-ordination of head and hand  will mean- real success. Farming  in Canada has paid and pays how  on many farms. It can be made to  pay on almost every farm. Canadian agriculture has passed through  low profit-making eras successfully in the past and can do so  again.  Crop Returns Should be Increased  . " On the Central Experimental Farm at  Ottawa some crop costs and crop profits  In. 1922 as contrasted with all-Ontario  average crop costs and crop profits are  given below. The all-Ontario figures are  in brackets:  Cost per acre  Hay $21.13 ($13.50)  Corn for  Forage  $47.50 ($33.75)      $10.38 ($2.86)  Oats      $26.47 ($19.32)      $ 7.33 (   .04)  Similar results can. be shown from the Dominion  Experimental Farm's ,in every province.  "Profit per acre  $11.21 ($5.09)  Experimental Farm crops are  sometimes claimed to be produced  at too great cost. Thousands of  experiments, however, show that  .��������� increased cropping costs wisely  applied .up to a reasonable point  always increase crop profits. This  is true on the Experimental Farm  i���������and on any and every farm.  With the increased "cost of production, the higher standards o������  living now prevailing cannot be  maintained by poor farm management, "boarder" milkers, scrub  beeves, poor quality-hogs or non-  ' profitable hens.  That even under present conditions profits may be made is testified by many skilful, observant and  non-plunging farmers, who believe  more in the policy of "slow but  sure" and "pay as you go" rather  than speed, ' with excessive borrowing and the often consequent  disaster.  The results on our Experimental  ���������Farms also bear testimony to the  value  of thorough,  skilful work.  The Farmer Must  Manufacture  But crops alone are not enough.  The farmer must change his crops .  into   less   bulky  and  more  high-  priced products���������milk, pork, beef,  mutton, poultry, etc.  With fair yielding cows 3airying  shows good profits in Canada. The  average cow - has increased her  yield 25% in the last ten years.  She can quite readily go up another 25% and more, and there's  where the profit lies. Better feeding, better selection and better  breeding will do the job���������feed,  weed, breed.  To do better feeding means  better pastures and more generous  supplies of palatable roughage.  Short rations including clover and  ensilage . crops (corn, sunflower,  pea and oat, etc.) will provide feed  in abundance for both summer and  winter. The experiments and investigations 'which the Dominion  Department of ^Agriculture have  carried on prove that farming  scientifically and systematically  undertaken will pay profits. The  records and particulars of such  work in every province are available to the Canadian farmer.  Are yon jrrowingr grain, or prodadwr  seed or interested in fruit?

Once in  a paper  from  The way people make a fuss about  the mosquito when they come to the  Fraser Valley would lead one to believe that the district along the Fraser river was the original home of  But such is not    the  a while one picks up  other parts' of the  world which appears to be highly  appreciative of the fact that some  new remedy has been discovered to  eradicate the pest.  Of course we all know that in the  outskirts' of the city of Vancouver  there is the usual''number of mosquitoes, and that some of them do.-fly  into the centre of the city at times,  but being near salt water and not  very thirsty the mosquitoes are not  surprised that the Vancouver Province publish the following article:  -  "Mr. W. Taylor, observor for th.e  city water department,'whose duties  take him over practically all the  North Shore hills, finds' evidences  everywhere of an extra heavy crop of  mosquitoes this summer. They are  already very active, he says, in the  vicinity of the streams, lakes and  ponds.  " 'There is a remedy for mosquitoes, recognized by all authorities,'  he said. Mt- is the small English  stickleback. This interesting little  fish have been tried out in all parts  of the world, in rivers, lakes, ponds  and reservoirs' where it is able to  .exist. The stickleback's favorite  food is the larvae or 'wriglers' as  fast as they appear in the water.  Large fly-bearing parts of Europe  have been kept clear of mosquitoes  by this small fish. All tlie stickleback necessary can be imported from  England or the United States, and  once planted in the water, these fish  multiply rapidly, and in season fulfil  the useful mission of preventing mil  lions of mosquitoes, attaining maturity. Our Greater Vancouver municipalities might interest themselves  in this to great advantage.' "  ���������But when the Kamloops-Stanck.rd  publishes the same article with comment asking that some, member of  the legislature at the next session  take the matter up for .discussion,  and by so doing would "receive the  thanks of the entire communities'"  if it lead to action to get "rid of the  nuisance which has reached the unbearable point," one is led to believe that there are also mosquitoes  in the Kamloops district, and being  far away from the salt water and  awfully thirsty it would make one  believe that there they are extremely vicious and thirsty after  human blood.  Abbotsford people can comfort  themselves that with the dyking of  the Sumas Lake the pest is lessened  in this district this year; but,they arc  'still biting in other parts of the province.  IJItADNER  F^ast week Messrs. Tico and Wei-  land visited the various certified  seed-growers for the first inspection. There are ten growers in this  district who are availing themselves  of the opportunity to produce government certified potato seed.  The government potato specialists  were greatly impressed by the excellent condition of tho crops and  considered that the conditions prevailing were such as would produce  potatoes second to none.  Mr. Hutchison has a very even  crop ��������� and only showed 1 1-2 per  cent, disease. Mr. Loach also had an  excellent showing with only 2 per  cent, disease. .  Altogether there will be four inspections and the various growers  are taking a keen interest in the  new venture.  lamK^r^F^^f^s^s.
