The fine weather did  not prevent many from coming  to .celebrate and let the hay and  berries take care of themselves  the great .national day. The attendance at both places was exceedingly  good and the children all enjoyed it  as much as the parents.      -  The Abbotsford pragramme opened with a grand auto parade to Huntingdon thence back to Abbotsford,  and on to Matsqui village where- the  good people there had gathered a-  round the. school. For sometime the  traffic of Matsqui village was blocked but no accidents happ&nsd. After  giving the residents and joymakers  the royal salute the procession returned  to Abbotsford.  The special prize for the bast decorated car was given by the judges  to the car driven by Mr. Stanley  Parton, containing the Allies, represented by Miss Gwen Sumner as Brit-  tania, Miss Dorothy Parton as Canada, Miss Margaret Hutchison as  France, Miss. Victoria Verch as the  United States, Miss Lovedar as Italy  and M'iss Florence Parton as Belgium  The judges were E. A. Barrett, A.  H. Harrop a nd the sporting',  paper, Mr. Mike Grant,  which the May Queen,  Queen  garet  other  of the  car  in  ditor  The  Mi S3  and the ex-Queen Miss Mar-  Smith was a close second. The  cars  to  the number  of about  30 were all decorated.  The programme of speeches and  music concluded the morning part  of the celebration. Mr. G. H. Kerr  president of tho Board of Trade presided, and after the singing of "God  Save the King" Reeve McCallum o!'  Matsqui spoke, followed by Mr. Angus Campbell of Sumas, in the absence of Reeve Fooks. Rev. W,  Robertson, president of tlie. Soldiers  ������Welfare League, followed by Mrs  Hannah Fraser, of the Rod Cross,  while Capt. F. J. R. Whitchelo on  behalf of the Great War Veterans  gave a stirring short address. Then  Mr. J. A. McGowan dismissed school  for lunch. The other songs were "0  Canada" "The Maple Leaf Forever"  and "Rule Britannia." all of which  were excellently sung.

Friday.  J. A. BATES, Editor and Proprietor ,  FRIDAY, JULY.25, 1919  People are again go ing land crazy in some  parts of the Fraser Valley. Some oi them  may be bitten unless they know something a-  bout soils and what they are buying. It does  seem a pity too, when people go on the land  and  are  not adapted  for  working  so  as  to  'produce. ,    , ,���������    , ._  The man who sells land has upon hi*  shoulders a great responsibility-che making  or unmaking of a district. If-enable -men  are placed on the land of the Prefer Valle>  there is no reason why there should not be  prosperity from one end of the valley to the  ������LThe reason for such prosperity in Mission,  Hatzic, Dewdney and Maple Ridge during the  present season is that the men who are making good are the men-who have for years had  the knowledge of what was best, m hanldmg  the soil so as to produce, and now when the.  markets and conditions are right, they haul  in the simolebns. '  Wc hope to see many, very many ot tne  returned soldiers making good on   the  land  for there is a careful selection bung made.  There is one condition of success on the  la dnand that one condition, besides knowing  how is diligence and hard work. No haphazard1 agriculturist ever was a succes on the  farm The hours of work are long and hard.  No six or eight hours a day brings m the  rush of coin to pay the bills. .Farming, is'  not the easy work that some people .suppose  it requires both brawn and bram Lo make it  a success. _jL__  These are the days when the land is being  taken up and residence in the country is becoming more popular than it has peen m the  history of the province. A rich agricultural  district at the back* of any city is bound to  make that city prosperous.  Why This Paper Does Sofc.Boosi Oliver   ...  Since the visit, of Premier Oliver to this-  town and the last, issue of the paper many  people have asked us, What is the matter between Oliver and you, that he should poke fun  at you from the public platform and why your  paper should be always after him.  We have no political axe to grind, and it  Oliver were a Conservative or a Socialist^ana  carried out the same policy as he has aone  during the past two or three yeai'S, we wouid  be after him the same way.    It is not a case  of a political parly at all, it is a case ot what  this paper thinks should be and is not.        ^  We are proud to see that many people in  Dewdney at least are of the same opinion as  ourselves-a great change has come over the  electors, and the policy that the Fraser \aL.  ley Record advocated in 1916 wiii aurely    be  carried out at the next election-Hie policy  that John Oliver is better on the ranch down  in the Delta than at the parliament oundings  at Victoria.    Go where you will tc.-day in the  riding and you will hear grumblings of discontent at what the government is doing.-  To those who have come to B. u to make  their home, as well as those who huve resided  here all their life, the god name and p.opei-  ity of this fair province means much;     and  that good name has been besmircnedby; the  Resent  government.      When  in  opposition  both in and out of the house the present Liberals left no stone unturned to blazon forth  to the world that British Columbia was broke  So well-had this been advertised by the late  leader of the  opposition  and his  tolloweis,  that when  the McBride government was  in  power, that in the eastern produces  every  visitor from British Columbia was asked    m  a critical way about British ColumDja      Oui  good name had been so besmirched Jiat.it had  reached the small hamlets of the eastern pro-  ViJohn'Oliver's past record in the provincial  house was such previous to li)lG that no man  with the pride of country in his neart^ould  knowing his political career since the> MaiVin  election of the last century, vote for him,  and the only rea'son that he received The^nm-  iority of votes in Dewdney was that the intelligent voter had never known or had forgotten the "stand on the important questions  of the day when John sat in.the.opposition.  John Oliver never since the day he entered  * politics made a speech in public, or to the  cattle on the farm, that would tend to make  the province he had adopted as his home a  - better place to live in. A man who has not  an advanced idea for making things better,  but simply says the other fellow is-wrong no  matter what he does, without sayiug how or  where, cannot be a good man to represent  any district like Dewdney at Victoria.  , The  signs of thetimes-in 1916-\vere. that the people wanted a change and .meii of. the calibr*  of John-Oliver did not appeal to this paper,  as being in tlie, interests of the province  1 Then John Oliver was a discredited politician in his own riding, and with a record that  did not appeal to us'as being a-good-man away -  from home, even among strangers.      Being  neither-a prophet nor a man, with advanced -  ideas, this paper did not support him... Are  we sorry?    No, not yet.. .'     ���������  Now after the government with John Oliver at its -head has been in power with about  two years to run, we find that the''many who  supported him are today saying, 'Never again  for me.' Many say it.was because they,, did  not know Oliver but listened to his oratory  .and the number oi times he said "I" that he  got their support, ,   ,  The fact that the premier of this province  stands up on the public platform, after two  years or more absence from the-distnet, and  pokes fun at "Friend Bates", tjie editor ot  this paper shows that what this paper has  said editorially during those two years weighs ������������������  heavily upon our premier, and,'with mucn  truth in it 'Friend Bates' is to be reckoned  with when it comes- election time again. ' If  the editor-of this paper were .premier and  John Oliver were editor of this paper and the  premier came to Mission City to speak-to his  supporters and the taxpayers, we would take  no notice of the country editor at all, but outline the policy of the government in such a  way as to win back" any who had been-backsliding in support. We would' make that  editor sit up and lake.notice, and. place him  and all other reporters in the-positions oJ  having to report one of the most constructive  speeches ever delivered in Mission City,-so his  veaders would have for-once something good  to read "But John 'Oliver thought otherwise  and acted otherwise, leaving '��������� the impression  that in heaven, provided he got there, he  would-be a trouble., maker,.. an<J not do as  others did,���������help to swell the chorus.  Later we .intend-to give a review of what  the premier-has done for Dewdney and -the  province'generally.'and.so. stir up the premier  that when lie comes to'Mission'City next time ���������  he will-have something:-more to. say; -and we  always have this satisfaction that our audience of readers is many, times .bigger than  the audience "that listened to Premier Oliver  on Wednesday, July 16th,\1919.  This paper has John's-goat and we are going to keep it, if we can.

Ford knows to a penny -what a $500 car  costs, but says he can't tell within half a mil-  ion about theiprico-of his home, which shows  that he is human anyhow.

Probably the coffee dealers will take ad-  vantare of the recent volcanic eruption on  the island of Java to raise the price on one  of our few permitted drinks. And the reformers will claim that if Java was not being  used for immoral purposes of stimulating the  human race the eruption would-never have  happened.

K CLEARLY Wl  Says a subscriber: "I called up a number the  other day, and .almost laughed when Central  queried a number quite different from that for  which I asked. When I had time to think a-  bout it, perhaps she was not to blame, for it  is probable that the number was given indistinctly."    .  This is a frank admission and gives rise to'  the suggestion that indistinctness may be the  cause of trouble' more often than is thought.  i - r  BRITISH COLUMBIA TELEPHONE Co.

It seems  that Dr. ���������, the baby specialist  ���������has.been  medical  adviser  of  the  family  in  the raising of their seven  boys   and   one   girl,   and   the ..whole  routine and diet,of the children have  been  arranged'according    to     bluo-  prints.an dspecilications. IT the parents  followed. UicKC, ,ii; is the theory  that   tho  baby   will  come   up   liko  a  'prize steer at a country  fair,  assay  about   00:0   per   centum   at   all   tho.  baby  shows, and  subsequently  grow  up to he, one of nature's noblemen.  Wlrc.ro  .11m   gets  into   the  system  is  aa  stoolpigeon.    The  Jones     boy  -balked at carrots, spinach, asparagus  cauliflower and some other items of  the  diet,  and it was    Mrs.    Jone's  practice to use Father for bait  ������������������."Eddie" ��������� Mrs. Jones would "stij,  "you, really must eat your carrots'  Look at Papa; see what a great big  strong man he is! He eats carrots."  (Business of giving the high sign to  poor patient father, -who commences  to eat carrots as though' he loved  them.) "See, Eddie, papa eats them  and it makes him a great big man.  Take a spoonful for mother, dear,  and grow up,to'be a great big man  like Daddy!"  Father used to swell, up on'this  talk, and tie into the carrots, spinach, prunes, asparagus or cauliflower,  as the case might be, although evo.-y  spoonful.was a punishment for him;  but in the. course of-time he grew  to be a. mere automaton at mealtime,1  utilized only as bait to lure Eddie  into the doctor's  diet.  Ho used to get up in the morning  hungry, and. after a season ot  duty  at tlie breakfast fable  he would  gb'  down.to  tire ollice  full of  sawdust;  breakfast   food,   stewed   prunes   and  graham   crackers   and   try   to   do   a'  day's  work.    ;At  eventide he  would;  como   home, hungry,   bo  led   to   the.  dinner table and filled  up with car--  rots, cauliflower, spinach and  distilled water,   and  maybe  a little  milk  toast, for Eddie's benefit..  Jones got. a little-rest when Eddie  arrived at school'age, and,then Fred  came along, and after him Beatrice  and  Willie, and so on.   .Take it altogether. Jones has been held    to    a  prescribed,   scientific,   blueprint  diet  .for so many yxjars, and now Eddie is  rmarried, .and   the   poor  man   has, a  grandson whom-Mrs Jones is supcin-  tendihg.and the same doctor has prescribed the usual personally conducted formulas for, him.    But Jones-  Jones   has   worried   and   starved,  and lost''flesh, until he will no longer serve as    a    .model    of    miuilv  strength.    Grandma points to Grand  pa,and says:   ,. .  "George, .you positively must eat  your carrots! Look at Grandpa! He  eats them, and sea what.a great big.  strong man. he is!"  George looks at, Grandpa, and  concludes .that if' carrots will make  him look like Grandpa he is not going fo eat them.  So they sent'Jones out for repairs,  and aro using the hired man for a  stoolpigeon for little George until  Grandpa gets his strength back again  You ought to -see Jones out here  on the beach tying into the fried fish  the stewed clains and beefsteak, the  strawberry shortcake and lemon pie.  and smoking hfs head off.- They  wouldn't'even let him smoke around  the'house on account of tlie example  to the children, and Jones has' had  to!,sniok-c his after-dinner cigars on'.  In ; the garage for years and yearn  past. -.,   .    ���������        _ .  -ylt is the first vacation the old boy  has had in more than twenty'cars  lie told me that he wished no man  any injury, but if the doctor was'  ever jammed up in an auto accident  he hoped it would 'be a good  thorough job of jamming.'  Jones is patiently preparing to go  'back and take up his stoolpigeon  job for the good of tho family, but  if there' is anything in this self-determination business, the man is far  from gotting justice or a square deal  and something should be done about  it. The family stoolpigeon���������and I  am satisfied there a"2 r.:<v.y of them   ought to org?.'.:i2<?  and see  if th.?  abuses cannot be abote.l and sv,bsi-.v.  tial justice scair:il.

There is only a small  movement of fruit, as the high price  prevents the housewife from preserving. Tho warm weather and the  holidays are also against' it, and to  cap it all sugar shortage still prevails. Calgary never has paid as  high for fruit as other prairie points  Carrie, of Nelson High school, with  854, out of a max mum of 1100  murks, heads the list of intermediate Grade candidnlcs, while Annie  'Marie Wall, also of Nelson  school, leads the Senior Grad", having obtained 815 marks out of a  total   of   1100.

Raspberries throughout the  United States are not grown to any  very large quantity, being now less  than ten percent of what it was a  number of years; and the only well  known raspberry land in the whole  of the North American continent is  in the Fraser Valley particularly in  and near Hatzic and Misison districts  and close to Abbotsford.
