Abbotsford's Pioneer Stores  Are you travelling by ox-team on  We were here doing business when the only  "road to market" was over the Yale road That was  not many years ago. Just as steam and electricity  have made London, Paris and New York important  so will the railroads and electric line make Abbotsford the distributing, manufacturing and industrial  centre of the Fraser Valley. "f  Our "Secret of Secrets" is that we sell goods at  reasonable prices and treat our customers right.  THE   PIONEER STORE  L. MCPHEE  ������  Government Trunk Road   o   AJbbotsXord  '-and    flurivmrulintr  district  is fortunate, in. haying    a  member who can, place such'an cx-  co'li.jnt   mud    idup!eri,n,tendent     in  ceHofnt     road    su florin/ten dent   in  the district to sole that dm money  voted by-the government is properly flpant.   Some $2/i;000 'is bein{r  spont in  tins  purt -of the  district  this year wesK of Majub'a.Hill, and  the  work is about .completed. The  consequence  of this is' that!    the  people   and'the   government  are  gelling good value for iheir money  As a usual'thing government money is not a/ii spanc untifl late     fn  the year, and, the fall and succeeding winter rains undo to a groat  extent the good that,has.been done  to; the roads-and about, the- midd'.e  of winter there are parts, especially the-;heV,parts that" had better  not have'been'touched and certain  ly reflect no'"good on. the government thai Las don-vthe work.    But  this year,.especially in .Sumas and  Ma'.sqiXl'he government work has ���������  has been done we',1 and-quickly, ac- '  cordirig'to pur information.  The tb.wnsitc of Huntingdon has  come-in for a share and the streets,!  jofL. the, r-ittte '-.town wif^., a future  have''b'een; graded .and the .last/vest-  ige  of  a back  woods  appearance  has been, removed and- her streets  wpuld do. credit to-a town much"  larger. , .     -        .  Abbotsford, will  soon  have her .  sidewalks ; completed���������a   walk   an  each, isida .of Essendene- avenue' is  nearing .completion as well as -on  several other stree's.   A great deal  of   street   opening   has   also . been  opened up and put in condition for.  gravel.     Altogether    some   .$2,500  has  bean spent in the town this  year   in  opening   the .streets  and  building the sidewalks. We should  be satisfied with the year-s work,  year's work.  On 1h3 Ya-'e road-east of the town  some five or six mi.es have been  repaired   and   some  two  or   three  mi.es graded.   A road has been opened leading towards Clayburn as  far as Clayburn station.   This has  been graded with a.-ditch on each  side of thej road and> al'so a ditch,  leading  towards . Clayburn / from,  the station.   Earth has been drawn,  on the road and then the gravel.  Crushed roack will probably be pla  ced   an a part   of  tha  road.   The  Harris road near Matsqui townsite  has bean opened,, thus making,,    a  good road towards Mt Lehman The  opening   of, this   Clayburn      road  means   more   than   would  at  first  appear���������it  is- another  link  in  the  Fraser Valley Automobile^ route of '  which considerable has been writ- .  ten and said.   It connects the Yale,  road with Riverside- on the Fraser  river,   besides   giving - a    shorter,  route from Matsqui.to Abbotsford  When the Dewdney, Trunk road on  the north side of the river has been  opened and a ferry placed on the  river  tha automobile    route    will  have been completed and the daily  number of tourists  who will travel over the road will make our  town and district more favorably  known than it is now.  Good roads will open our district and prospective sett ers when  they see what has been,' done, will  all the more quickly become bona  fide settlers. .���������'���������'������������������'.  Rev. J. L. Campbell was at the  coast this week.  WIRING COMPLETED  On Tuesday .the B. C. E. R. linemen having completed their work  as far .as , Huntingdon returned  to the coast. The branch' lino to  Huntingdon is now complete and  ready for the company to run their  trains as far as Huntingdon. -It is  altogether 'likely, so report has it  that a service will be given during  month as far as Hunting-don, that  being the point to which the'line  is "completed. It may possibly be  one train per day each way.   ,  It is n.ot likely that the line will  be completed to Chilliwack until  late this fall, if even then. Then; Is  considerable filling to( be don-.;.yet  in the filling! in and then-consder-  atale work will have to be done before the linemen can continue their  work.  .The"new lin^ when completed-to-  Chilliwack will be a great boon to  the--settlers in Chilliwack and a-  long the line to New Westminster  and should be the settling of as  fine a tracf of land as is to/be seen  in any country.  '    OPENING .UP, BUSINESS  * ������o*         .c  Mr. J." J. Sparrow since he sold  his- fine ranch has been casting, a-  bout for. a good investment of his  money. Having ^visited .-''several  places and inquired into numerous  business,,propositions has finally de  'decided to locate in his home town  and start business in'the wholesale  and retail feed and..flour business.  He has purchased the two lots and  fpool room next to thef Abbotsford  Hotel and begun the structure of a  fine  block-beside   the  pool" room  which will be rushed to completion  Mr. Sparrow is a-man who is never'  known to do things by halves, and  the fact that he has started business in Abbotsford ahowa that he  also has faith in the home town. He  wil'l equip the build'no; with    the  most up-to-date machinery for the  grinding of feed and hopes to do a  good business.   He is wel'l and favorably known ameng the ranchers  of the'Valley far and near.   *o* .  HOWE SUB-DIVISION  'You will notice Mr. Howe's ad  vertisement in this .issue. Mr. H.  A. Howe placed this subdivision on  the market a short time ago 'and  some lots were immediately sold.  Those at present offered for sale,  afford, the investor opportunity to  secure land bn which to build a  home for himself; or if he wished  to purchase with a view of increas  ing the money invested a better  opportunity to do so may not occur for sometime. The lots - are  close in.

The poor fellow 'was  taken to New Westminster hospital.

' Your corespondent H.   H.   S. in  his first letter denounced a "fake"-  boxing match and! upheld thej real '  or  genuine  article  and close'd  by  writing these words; "It is up to  Aorganizers  as we'4 as fighteru  to  put up a d.ean bill of fare when'  such is paid for oy <i sport, loving*  public."    It    is generally    admitted     I think    ]iyr the sport-loving public that the Reno battle was  a clean bill of fare.   It was no,fake  The   spectators  of  ' Chat    boxing  match'did not ask to have their,  money refunded.' They saw a fair  battle.   Many, no doubt, were sorry  that  Jeffries   was  beaten  but  they admitted he, was beaten fairly  and by a better-boxer. And I  say.again that^ the fight waB, a re-'  proach and a disgrace and an a-  bomination, and the governments  of  Oiitarib  and  of nearly ��������� all  the  States dec* are I   am right and they  fori.id <he exhibit'on of the pctcres  depicting   that   brutal' contest.   I  am. glad to-believe that we ..have  few in our fair community who are  organizers or fighters in this line  or even lovers of this,kind of sport  and I   hope the-numberl will de-'  crease when they read the account  of the perfected  product of this  business unworthy of the^name'.of  sport   or  athjleltiics/ boxing,   that-'  is, according tq H. S. and his-dict-  ipnary,   "figjitinlg'���������with   the-fsts"  cannot be properly called a' manly recreation and I hope we may  never again have) a public exhibition of this kind'in our midst, neilh  .er fake nor real.   I   must thank H.  H.   S.     for his personal remarks' ���������  but submit that they do not bear  on the subject under discussf'jn. If '  he has anything more to say in de- "  fence of boxing in the Ting manag  ed by ^ organizers and fighters or'  professional     or -.  non-profassip.n-  ai and can tell .us /what "a clean  bill of fare" would be.  T   for onV  will be glad to haar, from him.  J.L..C.  OPENING NEW BUSINESS "  Mr. D. W. Turnbu'.l' of our town.  has decided - that Huntingdon offers inducements ,to him and has  rented a building which wil be occupied by him for a store, at an  early date. Mr. Walter Wells  will have the management of tho  store. Mr. D. W. thinks that Huntingdon is a town with a future  His Abbotsford ��������� friends, and they  are Region, wish him weU, in his  undertaking. He will still do busi  ness at thef old stand- too.  Mr. R. W. Coventry Dick, former  ly of London, England, has. removed his quarters for the* present to  Mr. Lindsay Russell's large and  commodious auction rooms, while  completing the drawing of some  sub-divisions for Mr. Russell. Mr  Coventry Dick has already completed some sub-divisions, which  ai e displayed in the auction window. The drawings are certainly  works of art.

It is thef production q������ seed' that  saps   the   vitality   from  the Jfruit  tree.   Consequently, if treesj are allowed to overbear, exhaustion ensues) and a year is needed to recuperate.   This is  the reason why  most trees' bear only every other  year.   If however thinning is performed judiciously, the tree, freed  from the labor of so much seed pro  duction, turns its, attention to perfecting the fruit left on it; hence  there is a large percentage of No.  1 fruit and fewer' culls.   Then too,  if fruits touch one another1 on the  tree the spray cannot find access  and as the point of contact the'skin  is thinner insects which feed on the  fruit  find  easy   access,  generafiy  spoiling both the fruits which they  touch.  The above are some of the reasons for thinning" fruit as given  in the July issue, by the British Columbia correspondent of ihe -Can-  aditan' -Horticulturist, a , monthly  fruit magazine, published at Peter  boro, Ont. As a guide when thinning fruit, this correspondent gives  the rule that it should be thinned  so that when matured no two fruits  shall touch one another. Intelligent spraying and prun'ng are also  essential to the production of  .;he  best fruit.

WORK  Work is the UoaL friend of human  ity. It- iH well that work- often in  a necessity. It occupies the mind  and drives away the thoughts that  would anno yand paralyze. .There  is work of the mind as wo'l'as the  work of the hand. The man who  labors with an axe in the forest  felling trees and hewing them, is  a laboring man, so too is he who  takes his stand in the office of the  bank and counts money and keeps  books. He also is a laboring man  who sits oa his bench and patient  ly sews and pegs at boot���������making  ,or who skillfully adjusts tho hairspring and delicate mechanism of  a watch. No less is he a workman who all. day long is. reading  books that he may gain knowledge,  of the human body or human mind  that-Jie may minister to a' body  or mind diseased. He who skillfully pleadfi tho, cause of his client  before a judge that justice may be  dune is a workman.

Sugar Beef News  From   Bulletin  LX,  Publislhed  by  The Dominion Government  -.The farmer growing,sugar beets  will not fai'l' to have a clean piece  of   land.   The,' testicn'ony   of  farmers in Ontario ;an.d Alberta where  ever   I, have  spoken  to  them,  is  that no other crop so  effectually  cleans  the liand or so  we-Kl fits it  for   barley   oats   or  wheat  in  the  following  season,  as   a welll tilled  crop   ol  sugar   beets.   It  will   kill  out they say, that tough lived pest  .the Canada thistle; and'when'ask-'  'ed how itj destroys the thistle they  :wi"l tell you that after the hoe'" has  icut its ste,m'the broad leaves     of  the beet shut out the light of the  sun  from  its roots-and  they die.  There is no doubt the-land is great  ly improved by the cultivation it  receives   and   the   operations'-are  so simple that cheap'unskilled labor if properly directed wiUl serve  the    purpose.     A   farmer   . .with  three boys and girls of eight     to  sixteen-years of age may cultivate  a crop of four or five acres without  hired help at a cost of a few dayB  labor at intervals during the grow'  ing season aB easily as fifty years  efcg.o he cultivated  the 'sanie  area  in corn. '  FRUIT  AND   POULTRY  A profitable combination on a  small farm within easy reach of a  good market is fruit and poultry.  Hens, to do well, require a liberal  range that contains bushes or trees  enough to supply, partial shade.  They also ,-require a variety of  green stuff with a sprinkle of insects. Such a combination may.be  eiasijly ;suppli(ed .by planting the  land to fruit and enclosing it in  poltry netting wire.  The hens dc\ not know that th-'y  aro confined. They dig a litt.e  here and there, but quickly abandon the tas-k to chase a moth or  grass-hopper. 1A1 the bush fruits  are benefited by poultry, provided  the soi' is made soft enough for  them to scratch.  Bush fruits cannot thrive well, in  ground that is packed down hard  or covered with a mat of grass  But if thc^"plow and cultivator are  operated, as they should be early  in the season*..the ground ia put in  condition to y'eid fruit and benefts  the fowls, which-is.the, most probable way to gejt two crops from  the land at once.���������Ex.

July 1, 1910. ���������   :  -Mr. J. W. Creighton of New West  minster was in town this week. He  sees considerable improvement in  the. town since here a few weeks  ago.  Mrs. J. J. Sparrow is visiting in  Kamloops with friends.  Mr. Taylor of Messrs Henderson  and Taylor, surveyors and engineers who has, been on .an extended  trip into the ba3h on surveying  business, returned on Thursday  morning.  Ed Sisson is the kind of settler  that the district needs. He started  in a short time ago to clear some  40 acres close to Abbotsford and  the manner in which he has rushed  the work shows what can be done  on the bush land in this part of the  Fraser Valley. If Ed would tell  some of his friends ��������� how he has  done so much work in clearing in  such a short time, he would relieve  the inquisitiveness of some of his  friends. The property is about  a mile out from) Abbotsford beside  the Harrup estate.

Hon. Frank Oliver has reached  Dawson on his eight thousand mile  tour of the wilds of northern Canada.  Automobi'es, like time and tide,  wait for no ma, but at times the  chauffeur condecends to overlook  this maxim and helps a weary 'traveller  on his  way rejoicing.  Such,  was tlie case the other night% when  our local knight    of   the)   benzine  buggy, (who by the way has champion Johnston, of' Reno fame .left'  at   the   post   for   artistic   driving)  was  rudely  awakened  out of his  peaceful   slumbers   by   some    one  loudly knocking at, the door of his  garage. Thinking his favorite racer was being annexed by some unscrupulous miscreant he hastened  to the scene of action, only to be  met   with  the  query ," Would  he  oblige a few gentlemen whose machine by some mischance had over- .  taxed its vitality, and like Jeffries  refused to "come back."  'Veil, I been got good machine,  but, by law I no know you fellows." "Oh, that in all right!" ve-  lows." "Oh, that is. all right!" re-,  plied the spekesman with a dignity that would- have made Dr.  Spencer sit- up arid listen. "We'  are all good fellows. In. fact I   am.  Mr. Taylor and would, like to get  home to-night."  "I know that name but I no  know you. What Taylor are, you?  Perhaps, maybe you are good fellows and I get my monies for my  machine, but I yust come from Missouri."  "I am the mayor; of Vancouver"  replied the speaker.  This evidently was the key that  opened the spark plug for he did  the trip to Vancouver in excellent  time.  /  m  1  tt  i  V  ������������������jy  i  /"  P  "V-  I ,;  1.4
