Published Every Friday by The Post Publishing Company  A weekly Journal devoted to the interests of Abbotsford and district  Advertisiing  rates  made  Our   Shibboleth���������Neither   for   nor  agin  J. A. BATES,  known  on  application  the  Government  . Editor and Proprietor  FRIDAY, JULY  30th,  1915,  We have sent some of our finest young men to the front to  ���������fight our battles for us and the British Empire. This has not  cost some of us even an effort, while it means much to. many. A  few days ago in conversation with a man who had allowed to  go his only son, he remarked, This is the time that I could make  good use of-, him, but I am not grumbling, he has gone to do a  very good: work. Yes, indeed a very good work; and further it is  certain that many of the able-bodied should have followed his  example and gone to the front to fight a nation's .battles. The  ��������� same father said, Stir them up in your paper,'don't let;.those  young fellows think that it is not their duty to go and fight, because it is. -. And that is where thousands more of them'should  be. ' ' ,     .'    ���������  "For a truth it is known that the Germans, our enemy, have  sixteen machine guns to the British four:    Realizing that there  must be a slackness somewhere the people of the; country have  taken upon themselves to raise money to provide guns for many  more of puri men who have gone to fight; for what chance have  four, guns against sixteen, no matter how brave, we expect the  British and Canadians to-be���������the'bravest men who ever fought  .   battles could hardly be expected to win out under such conditions  If the government will not or cannot provide the ..machine guns  the people have virtually said, we will provide them, and thus  show the government that we are so much in earnest about winning this war that-we are not afraid to dig down into our pockets  ���������although many of us are short of cash, and subscribe money to  buy Canada's brave boys machine guns to fight the enemy.     It  is much better that we should win, ten thousand times better,  than that enemy should be able to prolong the war, thus causing disaster to thousands financially and death to thousands of  strongest and bravest of the Empire.    It is pur candid belief that  the money spent in purchasing machine guns for our boys will  hasten the end of the war.    What do you think about it? Have  you ever given it a thought?  The British Press has lately devoted much space to a discussion of the position in the community of the naturalized subjects  of alien birth. -. The subject is.more intricate than is generally  supposed, for the highest legal authorities maintain that a naturalized subject does ;not enjoy all the rights and privileges of  the British-born. :That.'is a matter which is not so.germane to  present conditions in Canada as in England, where the number  of Germans who have been! naturalized is very large, and their  presence in the community a conspicuous danger. The exact  status of the naturalized citizen is to be investigated by the  courts in the action brought against Sir Edgar Speyer. Meanwhile one of the most forceful of London jounialists.John Briton, has published a comprehensive.article, on the subject. In  establishing a distinction between the British-born, and the naturalized citizen he goes for precedent tp that noble passage in  which the Apostle Paul laid down' a principle which has never  been questioned.     The context reads as follows:���������-  And as they bound him with" thongs, Paul "said unto the  Centurion that stood by, Is it lawful for you to scourge a man  that is a Roman, and uncondemnned?  ' When the Centurion heard that he went and told the Chief  Captain, saying, Take heed what thou doest for this man is a  Roman.  Then the Chief Captain came, and said unto him, Tell me,  art thou a Roman?    He said, Yea.  And the Chief Captain answered, With a great sum obtained  I this freedom. And Paul said, But I was free born.  Viewed in this light John Briton thinks that the status of  naturalized subjects is one that requires strict investigation This  is the view many people take,and is the view which was pressed  upon the notice of the Government by a meeting of citizens which  resulted in the visit of Col MacPherson, says the Victoria Week.  As there has been some misunderstanding as to the character of  the resolutions passed at that meeting it may be well to repeat  there were two, the first asking for the internment of all alien  enemies, the secPnd for an. investigation into any complaints  which might be made against naturalized subjects of alien birth.  The old Order-in-Couiicil, under which alien enemies could be  interned only for "Cause" has been supplemented by a new order, under which the interning authorities can intern every alien  enemy without question or complaint. If, there is at large a  single alien enemy it is either the fault of the interning officer or  of the Federal Government. If the accommodation is adequate,  the former is to blame, if inadequate, -the later. No investigation" has been held on the complaints against naturalized subjects of alien birth. This is regrettable because there are some  in this community who are known to be "enemies" arid there  are others so loyal and so far above suspicion that it is unfair  for them to remain under the shadow of a reproach because of  the shortcomings of disloyalists. Meanwhile the different light  in which the subject is viewed in England and in Canada is well  illustrated by the concluding portion of John Briton's article,  which is so impressive that it is quoted "in extenso."  The British people are now aroused by the greatest war  in history and the greatest danger in their experience. They  begin to remember many things which they had forgotten,  and one. of these things is that they belong to a nation in  whose victory or defeat they are vitally concerned. In these  days we are not merely "individuals" or "consumers or producers"; we are not interested merely in cheapness. We are  interested in the whole community because we stand or fall  togeth. All perish if the nation perish; and if the'nation  lives, what matter who perishes? The nation, therefore, becomes to us of sudden and vast importance. We awake to  the fact that we are British subjects, and that a nation of  foreigners, whom we had; been willing to admit as British  subjects, are now thirsting for our blood and plotting and  working for our destruction. And there lies the value of being a nation. Because we are a nation our young men fight  and die for us, and our taxpayers are. willing to pay their last  shilling in the national cause.    If we had been only a fortuitous concourse of atoms, if our ruling interest had really  been cheapness or class grievances or such like, we should  not now be able to defend ourselves at all.    It is blood that  counts when it comes to war.    Those British will, fight best  and help best who are born and. bred British.  'And what  prompts them to fight and work in our cause is not political  argument, about a treaty or a "scrap of paper", but their,  sound British instincts.    Their bodies are compact of an infinite number of memories and affections.which  entwine  them with their country.    There is such a thing as the soul  of a race or nation.    It is composed of, all the wars that  nation has fought; of all the sacrifices made by individuals  through its history in its cause;' of all the stored, heroisms  . and sufferings' arid loves and hates of that nation through  ., hundreds of years of history.      Of this soul the foreigner  must be ignorant, and therefore it is not good for a nation  to sell its birthright to. aliens for a mess of pottage.      , ,  E. O.

Especially  does  it  deal  with seed potatoes, a series of precautions being given that should always   be  taken   before  sowing.    Instruction is also furnished on methods that should be adopted to redeem  inflicted land, on the early recognition of disease, on spraying for    the  suppression  of  Colorado  beetle and  Late  Blight,  and  on the storing  of  seed potatoes.,How to use bi-chlorlde  of mercury and in what quantity is  explained. Stable manure should  not be used for potatoes Is the sound  advice given, as it may engender a  scabby crop, which can be averted by  the use of fertilizers. When there  is a lack of humus in the soil,' an application of crumbed peat will be  found beneficial. This will also retain moisture in" light soils. Information is given, on the preparation and  use of Bordeaux mixture.'

"It  won't be any good, sir,-' she protested  "I'm fair put to it to get him to court  me when we're alone, an' I'm sure he  won't do it afore all you gentlemen."

Summary of Results" issued by the 'Division of Field Husbandry of the Experimental  Farms,  and.that  can.be  had by application to the .Publication  Branch,   Department  of   Agriculture  Ottawa.    Reports are given of work  carried on at the central and branch  farms and  stations.    The  results of  experiments in rotation of crops furnish   information     of  great     value.  These ���������experiments cover a period of  eleven years and the results with advice founded thereupon are set forth  in   the  Bulletin  according' to  years.  Following are a  few of the 'benefits  given  as  derived   from  adopting    a  judicious system of rotation:  1. Tlie appearance of the farm is  improved. '    ''  2. Every field receiving at regular  intervals  its   fair; share   of   manure  and   cultural   treatment,   the   entire  farm is in a condition to ensure    a  maximum yield.  3. Cost is lowered by the saving  of time due to all the work of a.kind  Icing confined to one field.  4.     Fewer fences are required.  6. Machinery can be more economically utilized-  G. More live stoclccan be kept,  thus, increasing the quantity of ' a  vailable, manure.    ��������� ,  7. Profits and yields,are increased.  8. The farmer Is . not dependent  upon  a  single crop..  9. Permits qt' .a more even distribution of the season's labour.  Following details of tlie rotations  that are outlined as a summary of  the characteristics common to all:  1. Grain fields are always seeded  clown with clover, even though it.be  used only as a fertilizer.     ;  2. Grass and clover seedings are  heavy. Increased crops of| hay and  rare failures of a cater have justified  them. ,. ;  \i. Hoed crops form ,a large proportion of every rotation. ' An attempt to farm a small area without  a hoed, crop was not successful.  "Woods could not readily be kept in  chock.  4. No field is left in hay for  more, than two successive years. The  records show that tlie second crop  almost always costs more per ton.  than tre first, an,d that succeeding  crops are liable to be grown at a  -loss.  0.

Despite the faot that so'.many.-'-of  the farmers and producers who make  it their "business,.to attend Ithe New  Westminster market regularly, are  now busy haying and harvesting,  there was a very .large attendance at  the market on, Friday morning last.  There were splendid displays in all  staple lines and a number of new  features introduced for the inspection of the local housewives and the  buyers.  Probably the {big feature of the  market* was the fine shipments of  early apples and plums. There were  at least 100 boxes of Yellow Transparent" and Duchess apples on the  market and the ..entire lot was cleared  away before 11; o'clock.- One Vancouver Chinaman purchased 50 boxes of Chilliwack' apples for which he  paid $30. Per box the fruit brought  all the way from 60 to 7 5 cents.  Greengage plums in fair condition,  grown by George Miller . of Ruskin  brought 40(5 per crate. Some Royal  George and Peach varieties, were  found rather badly diseased'and they  sold for 25<* a crate, not sufficient to  pay the freight charges and cost of  packing. . j    -.  Apples appeared in a new guise in  the stalls, being packed in.the eastern basket with cloth gauze covering  which shows plainly the quality of  the fruit. This method of packing  has long been in vogue in: the East  and is being introduced in the West  this year for the first time. The  baskets found a ready sale at 35(i  and G5(> apiece, according to the size  HUGH McBRIDE  General Blacksmith  Anil Horseshoer  Carriage "and Repair Work of  all Kinds  Automobile Repair Work  Satisfaction Guaranteed  Next to Alexandria Hotel  HUNTINGDON B. C.  In other fruits the market was not  so good. Raspberries and other  small' fruits are practically over fort  shis season. There were small showings of red and black currants and a  few blackberries sold at last week's  quotations  Wholesale meats were much scarcer than usual and what did appear  was soon snapped up by the wholesalers and hurried to the refrigerator. Meat carcasses left standing on  the market soon assumed a black ap-  pearance which militated against its  sealing properties.  Chickens showed as strongly as  ever. There were more crates, than  usual, if anything, and the chicken  mart was the busiest section of the  square all  morning.  Although prices are not nearly so  poud as earlier in the year the' supply of fowl which every week conies  to the city is still undiminished in  column apparently, and the local  chicken experts have long since quit  trying to figure where the birds  come from.  ��������� Eggs retailed at 30 cents and  wholesaled around at 26������jf There was  a fair demand for crated eggs although the retail purchasers fell off  slightly.
