Published Every Friday by The Post Publishing Company,  weekly Journal devoted to theinterests of Abbotsford. and district  Advertising rates  made  known  on  application  Our   Shibboleth���������Neither   lor   uor  a^in' ;the  Government  J. A. BATES,  Editor and Proprietor  FRIDAY, JULY 23, 1915  It seenis that tho world is growing sadder than it used to be.  Life is a serious matter with many people these days, what with  no money, no work and the problems of life to meet just the  same as when times were good and every man had a dollar,  serious and sad; but why the prospects are bright ahead?  .���������- r������������������ j  In these days when-public employment is given by public.money tlie man who earns money from the taxes paid by the people  he should see to it that all the money possible that he spends  should be spent in the town where he lives, that is if he wishes  to see his country prosper and grow.  Is there a man with soul so dead, who to himself hath not said,  This is my own my native town where I earn my mon  To advance its interests 1 should always spend it therein.  The man who wrote those three lines may not have had much  poetic genius but he sure was full of sound logic.  THE MARKET  There is no difference of opinion among our,leading financial  and trade magnates that the business outlook of British Columbia is improving.    This is not to argue in favor of a blind optimism, says the Victoria Week, but it is to bespeak careful consideration of a few salient features which led to no other logical  conclusion than that the outlook is hopeful.    The first important  factor is that we have by this time come to realize that the war  is.not responsible for present conditions. . Trade depression be-  .   gan a year before the outbreak of war, and was admittedlly due  to a natural reaction from the speculation of a boom period. No  doubt war complicated the conditions of trade, but the necessity  for enforcing economy which led to the abandonment of contemplated improvements, and the cutting down of appropriations  for nublic works, had much more to do with bringing about the  present quietude.    In British- Columbia the worst effects of the  war commercially have been experienced by the lumbering industry.    The demand for building material from the prairie pro-  vlcnes fell off sharply on the outbreak of hostilities and has not  yet, recovered. . The abnormal activity'of our American cousins  who have appeared to have coralled the balk of the foreign trade  as well as making inroads in our domestic market, has been another weighty factor in reducing the profits of the local industry  to an inconsiderable amount.    Thanks, however, to the activity  of the Provincial Government, and the co-operation of the Trade  and Commerce Department of the Federal Government, extensive markets for British. Columbia lumber have been opened a-  broad, and once the shortage of bottoms for transportation has  been removed there is no reason to doubt that trade will rapidly  revive.    It is a matter of common knowledge that stocks of lumber all over the world badly need replenishing, and this fact,  together with the confidence engendered by the harvesting of a  good 'crop should lead not only to a marked expansion of trade  in the markets of Great Britain, Australia, the West Indies and  South Africa, but also a return to the former activities of building iii the Prairie Provinces.    Not the least important factor in  a general trade revival will be a substantial development in  agricultural production.    Official reports indicate large increases in land clearing and, in the areas devoted to crops of all kinds,' BeeT hin^dquarters���������.! 137 to 13% f  -There, has been a noteable increase in dairying and in truck  farming, and owing to a spread of. the principle of co-operation  "the selling organization has been increased.    The result is as  shofVn by the Customs returns, that British Columbia produce  is displacing imports from the United States.    Last, but by no  mean's least, unskilled labor at low prices is plentiful, and extensive schemes for land cultivation by the "unemployed" are  under .way.    Comparatively little grain will be imported from  the prairies this year on account of the larger area sown.    The  dream of the "simple life" and "back to the land" is probably  nearer to realization than many people think, for -there is a  marked tendency on the part of the city people to exchange  town properties for farm land.    Incidentally it should not be  forgotten that if this movement continues,  and if the other  general developments outlined above materialize, increased production will go a long way to solve the most important problem  with which the Province has to contend, that of making its railway systems profitable.    Amid much criticism directed to the  delay in completing the Canadian Northern and the P. G. E., it  is easy to lose sight of the fact that a quick turn of the wheel of  fortune may soon land these enterprises in the profit earning and  dividend paying stage, all that is needed is patience and energy  intelligently directed. ,  .Apples from Chilliwack, yellow  transparent .-.and Astrachan . varieties  were the: new features:-on the New  Westminster market Friday -last. The  entire-shipment was.sold to an enterprising-grocery firm at $1.25 t'o$l:50.  per box, before the njarket was well  advanced. .

MARKET REPORT OF VERNON FRUIT CO., LIMITED  The past week has been an unsatisfactory one from a quality  point of view, so many crates wet, packed down and dripping.  The better class of retailers will not handle these at all. Nor  will they stand-much jolting on wagons. They must be sold at  the warehouse and it is not a case of dictating prices either.  Blackberries'Have been very soft with moldy ones sprinkled  through. We greatly regret the use of the full pint. No retailer wants to handle cups that are not full and these pack  down so that they look very- slack, and when packed they do  not present an attractive appearance, besides causing them to  bleed. A well filled 2-5 is the best package from every point  of view.
