The  minister expressed his appreciation of  the international feature of the symbol of a hundred years of peace between the United States and Canada,  and of the objects of the Peace Memorial Association which has been  working to establish, proper surroundings for this memorial to international good will.

Lehman  FRIDAY, JULY 2,    1922  While'not everyone will agree  with all tlie great things that is going  to happen to British Columia' as a  result of the visit of prominent I.i-  erals to the big Liberal pic-nic held  last, week one cannot help but think  that some good is bound to follow m  the trail of so many politicians from  Canada's capital coming out to our  province and 'looking her over'.  We want many things in B. C. be:  sides a decent government    at    Victoria.    There  are  many  things  that  an Ottawa government c'aD do for the  province that, a Victoria government  cannot do for us; and there are many  things'that can be gotten.by co-oper-  atioiuof the.tw.o governments.  '    Situated as British Columbia on the  western boundaries"of the. Dominion,  ," away from the centre of big .business  "of the country,    and   .with    growing  "pains it is often a difficult matter to  impress the Ottawa government with  ''tlie"ever increasing demands of a new  ' province.    Letter's are not always effective, while delegations   "sometimes  fail to'function for. various reasons,  ' which" Vre! known to many who have  taken the'trip; but seeing cannot help  ' 'but be believing, especially when the  "goods are oh display.      Ministers   or  "'"tlie'crown' pay too few .visits to B. C  to become familiar with the importance of the'gfbwth of the.province.  A certain New Yorker who has carried but many schemes in.the United  States  is "a frequent host at a ban-  ' 'quet; and when he has an important  scheme to float. When he..has done  '"trie duties of-host to perfection, he always appears to have....'.something on  his chest, which he���������might as well get  rid of, now as any .other time'.and he  -  proceeds to get enthused'with the im  " poftant idea.'"

On this day,business was generally better', due to Labor Day following on Monday, and on account of  the failure to' insert the advertisement, the plaintiff claims he was  damaged in the sum of $1,000. '  The outcome of the suit is not yet  known, it is"interesting to note the  definite turnover that,this merchant  credits as directly due to his advertising. The use of newspaper space  as a means of stimulating' sales and  keeping the name of a merchant'before the public cannot be underestimated, and when coupled with.&ispla}  of the proper.sort and effective selling talks, is always productive of  results.���������Canadian Grocer.  in   the  ��������� The jam makers are disappointed  in the shipments as only about 10 per  cent, of the promised consignments  are turning, up.

'   in many cases have not been built'on  -solid foundations... A few. days ago it  was the privilege of a representative  of this paper to have caught up to.ra  i      heavily loaded truck, where the road  was apparently not wide, 'enough   to  :      pass by without going to the com-  ]      mon danger.    The    big truck wheels  were making their impression on the  road-bed, which sunk under the heavy  '-      weight and rose back to its former  position���������giving the, impression that  "ihe thin crust of the road was. riding  on a sponge.    In places the road was  breaking through where   the   gravel  '     "bad become lossened.  ,    That'road was evidently not built  for heavy - traffic,  but if we are to  baye the big trucks on our roads we  "must make 'the road bed solid no matter what the'.cost, is', as it is, a waste  .of public money to tear a road up to  'build up another piece of road. Since  the car.has come.into use more care  \-has-been "taken1 of our "roads but so  ' far - as building permanent, roads    is  concerned there, are. few of them-in  the Fraser Valley. ..  ,  Had the money that was used in  extending the P.

'     "      '  The action brought by a retail  grocer against the daily newspaper of  a'town.in tlie .Western, States, for failure to print its advertisement, alleging loss of sales to the extent of  $1,000, ia indicative of the value he  places'on advertising as a means of  stumulating business.  In his'statement of complaint    he  declares that he does    depend . very  largely on advertising   for   business.  ,.. and on account of: the no-apperance  of his advertisement, his/ sales'.;l were  $500 -less than they~ would have been  had the advertisement appeared. He  asserts that on the    Saturday preceding, and on which day a similiar advertisement appeared, the sales made  .���������.,.jby.the plaintiff amounted   to    $650,  "' 'an^tKafwriiie'dn "the following Saturday, the day on   which the adver-  C. H. Sawle, editor of the Omineca  I Herald, says that a newspaper wheth-  I er a weekly or a daily, is regarded as  the one   institution    in   ,the    world  which continues to draw manna from  Heaven, and thus exists purely    for. and Oswald,  philanthropic purposes.  Owners of newspapers    discovered  . some years ago   ,that  .the.   crop    qf  j manna was a failure and that there  " was' rib seed for"further .sowing. In  other words the press has, endeavored to iriipress upon the general;public the difference ..between advertising arid news. Sbriie success has been  achieved, but nothing like' geneial  success.  , Every person, every business and  every institution loves publicity (favorable) but there are countless  thousands who" still-ask for. free publicity. ��������� The -general , public cannot  conceive the number of requests lor  free advertising - .that the weekly,  press receives each week, not, only  from local sources', but from governments, political'parties, manufacturers, corporations of all,; kinds,.most  lawyers, and wild-catters.  , The press'asks only for fair consideration. "When money is to be  irnade through publicity that is advertising, then the press is entitled .to  its  services. . ' '-  There are two classes of free advertising seekers, viz., the pbsses.iors  or representatives of wealtii' '.who  figure that their own estimate of  their own-importance "will- over-aAve  the press; the,next-big class is, the  timid who have no faith in themselves, ideas, ware or products, but,hope  to ride in at the expense of somebody  else. Both classes are finding';" the  press is no, longer conducted without  a cost system. " '  The fair, square, open and above  board advertisers find the news column's of the press always , open to  them, in fact the press goes out ot  its way to advance their interests. ���������  One of the greatest pleasures the  press has is advancing the interests  of, individuals, corporations or insti-  tituions. But the press is a business  and there are certain things money is"  needed for/ such as wages, overhead,  living expenses, contributions to everything that comes along, and then  of course there are taxes'���������strange  isn't it? Yet-many had an idea the  press lived by good deeds alone; The  Herald telis you that running a paper  is no Garden of, Eden existence:  And so tdoes, this paper.

This refers to both pickirig and  packing. Cherries should be picked  by the stems in order. to avoid bruising the, fruit.  There has been considerable discount on cherries shipped to.'the  Vancouver market, especially Royal  Amies and Ox Hearts, which are  very sensitive to the slightest bruise,  tlie bruise is not so much in evidence  on dark colored Bings and Lamberts',  but causes them to very quickly  break down after reaching.the. market,  The July meeting of the Mt. Lehman Women's Institute was held on  the lovely grounds of Mrs. Richard  Owen on Thursday, July 13. Then  was a fair attendance * of members  and several visitors were present. The  report on the Dominion" Day picni<  was given showing that; it had been'  successful both socially and financially. A balance of $37 was added to  the Institute funds, and the treasurer was instructed to open an account .with the ~ bank. The school  committee was reappointed. As con-  verier of the Fair : committees Mrs.  Gamsby reported progress. It was  agreed that the.September meeting,  would be held in the Memorial- Hall  and the October session at Mrs. Roy  Lehrrian's. The July meeting usuallv  takes the form of a musicale, but the  members felt that out of respect to  their fellow worker, Mrs. Jackman,  whose husband had died, but a few  days before, no set programme should  be carried out, but that every thing  should be informal and impromptu.  Mesdames Lehman, L. Coghlan, and  Athole Lehman were the hostesses.  The thanks of the Institute were tendered to Mrs. Owen for her kindness  in, lending her home for this meeting.  This district has not been without  its fires. Especially in the Jublee  s'ecton have the farmers had to fight  -the fires to    save    their'   buildings.

Sunshine and  clouds with occasional showeis is  bringing on the grain in a healthy  condition. No rust is apparent. Fall  rye is being cut and is a good crop.  North of Edmonton is in need  of more rain.    This is exceptional.  Express' shipments of all kinds of  truck produce .is arriving in volume.  Okanagan cars heavy and Armstrong  celery predominates.  Cherries have' never been so plentiful on this market, prices have ruled  low owing to the late raspberry-season overlapping the Bing and Lambert- cherries, the rasps have had a  preference. Okanagan cherries are  large and the pack excellent. Arrow  Lake Bings ares mailer and the pack  usually slack. Kootenays are also on  this market, prices have ruled low  owing to the late raspberry season  overlapping the Bing and Lambert  cherries, the rasps have had a preference. Okanagan cherries are  large and thep ack excellent. Arrow  Lake Bings ares mailer and the pack  usually slack. Kootenays are also  on- the small side.

Many discolored lots are being offered for "sale���������spoiling the sale ;of  good Anns: The peak is passing and  within:a week the , opportunity to,  buy fine cherries will, pass for a'season. Preserved cherries are a cooling arid healthy night-cap in a dry  country. Growers will be disappointed at returns this year. Okanagan  cherries have shown, considerable  shrinkage due to being a trifle overripe. The situation as to cherries is  general throughout the Prairie?.'  -Mr.' S;' J.

On the same  day he sold some boxes' of Summer-  land Newton Pippins (last year's  stock) No. 2, at $3.50 per box.

They were offered . at  $4.25 per crate and found slow sale  A large portion of the car was jobbed at prices below cost. About 50.  crates of -Logan's were in the car.  These did not stand up well.  We do not expect to see any more  rasps brought in in car lots from the  U. S. this year. The Calgary market  was supplied by L.C.L. shipmeits . oi  rasps, during the days that the American car was being sold, and any  loss through it having been brought  in fell to them, as the B.

[URGE PAVING OF FILL SECTION  CLOVERDALE, July 21.���������A number of local residents are.urging that  the provincial government    permanently pave the section of Pacific Highway kriowri as the    Serpentine    flats  fill this usmmer.    This fill comprised the building up of the road   from  three to five   feet in   height   for   a  distance of about    two    miles.    The  work was completed   late   last summer and the new road-bed   has been  settling ever   since.      During all   of  this time, the highway has been subjected to heavy traffic   and the residents argue that ho    more   settling  will occur.   For a time after the completion of the fill, planks laid:on top  of the gravel were used as a road, but  early this spring these were torn   up  and fresh gravel put on..
