He has ������>lso  the satisfacfion of .knowing that  history has honored his fellow-co-  worker and called him from, thr  plow to help govern the ��������� state.  The free independent life of the  tiller of the soil has its many rewards, as well as the other occupations of life.  , Two years ago liifty- acres were  pur'chased'on .'the*, outskirts '"of "Ab'r  botsford   and   in   March  the  first  tree was fallen on whites now one  o������   the   finest   sma.ll  fruit  ranches  surrounding this prosperous burg  of ours.   To-day we find some 600  fruit trees two and four years old  planted  and  in healthy condition  This year 8,400 nursery stock wao  set  out.   Next  year  it is  the  intention to set out about 120 three  vcar  old trees,  100  two  year old  The  ground is ready.  Out of the fifty acres there are  are about fifteen acres under culti ���������  vation and some eight acresl in  pasture. Of the amount planted  out there is one acre of those de'i'v.  ious strawberries wh'ch have made  many parts of h. C. famous. There  is also about 150 blackberry1 canes  and 100 gooseberries, besides 120u  raspberries.  The owner has not neglected to  add to his possessions a chicken  run in which over 100 chickens of  the very best kind have freedom  to wander at their own sweet will ��������� fruit.  The clover grown some five or six.  acres would be hard to beat anywhere in the-Fraser.Valley.  The above brief. description of  Mr. David Nelson.'3v farm" is givsif'  for two reasons���������to demonstrate  what can be done in the short time  of two years by a rhani'.with limited capital at his command for, the  starting ,in the fruit business, and  also to show.,that thehighland surrounding Abbotsford is ' adapted  for fruitgrowing. Mr Nelson has  gone into the business'with enthua  iasm and energy, and from now on  will year by year reap i;hc reward  of his labors. f  When a representative orf the  Post vici'ed-Mr. Nelson on Thurs  day last he was busily engaged  in his packing house preparing hia  strawberries for shipment to Vancouver wher ehe has found a mar  ket for ail his fruit. The picker?  were silently engaged in picking  the ripe and luscious fruit. The  previous day some 24 crates had  been shipped. He stated that-he  had-ntvo"difiiculty in marketing his  fruit and so great did he find the  demand that he was not in a posr  ition to meet that demand.  When Mr. Nelson purchased his  land he paid some $50 per acre for  it This year some a-]jorn.'n? land  cleared and in fruit was sold for  $300 per acre.  Mr. .Nelson secured his stock o:  young fruit trees from the upper  country and claims that they axe  much better than he could have  secured at the coast. They are per  fectly free from all disease and in  a healthy condition to all appearances. r  There is plenty ofland in the district for others to demonstrate a-  gain what Mr.������ Nelson has done and  .in years- to come no doubt the  whole of the surrounding highland  will present a picture of happy  homes, where the owners will/derive their means of livelihood by  growing fruits and shipping to the  over  increasing market  for B.  C.  A  NEW  SUB-DIVISION  Early next month the first subdivision     for the district' will     be  placed on the market by: the Pro-  vlm ial Investment company of B.  C\   Some 700 acres have been sub  d'vi-ied into ten  and twenty acre  blocks.   The C. P. R. and the B. C  ������E. R. run through the centre     of  the property. Arrangements  ni've'  been almost completed for the piaq  ing of an electri: car station'W th'j  property.   The officials'. maJa     :a  trip from New Westminster   a i^w  days, ago for that purpose':'. Each  ten  and twenty  acre    block    has  high and low land and i.3 well supplied, with .water.   A   proper  and  approved scheme of drainage had  been arranged f t each of the subdivisions        Such an arrangement  of land permits the settler to carry   on   two   classes  of  agricultu.it'  that adapted to the high land and  that adapted to the low land; and-  also gives'him a good healthy situation for his buildings, and where  he will have natural drainage.  When placed on the market the  blocks of land should be easy to  dispose of as it is understood the  terms are very reasonable. ,  PEARDONVILLE NOTES.  -!���������-���������<���������  DELIGHTED WITH B. C.  REACHING ABBOTSFORD  Mr.' A. M. Ross formerly of Mur ���������  ray River, P. E. I., is visiting his  old friend Mr. J. J.McPhee. Need  Ies3 to say he is delighted with thc-  litlle rai'.road town.   In conversa- ��������� busily pushing the;line along,  tion  with  a reporter   of  this   pa  per, Mr. Ross said that as soon aw.  he  arrived in  Calgary,   the    two  B. C. towns spoken most about a*,  he  travelled  west  were    Abbots-  ford and Vancouver.   He said this  without  cracking a smile.  BIG  COAL EXCITEMENT v  In the course of a week or so the  B. C. E. R. will have the poles as  I far as Abbotsford.    They are now  i between Clayburn and Abbotsford  The  poles were this week being Jaid on  the ground withitf the city limits.  A switch is being put into the gravel pit and when completed the  steam shovel will be put to wvrk  to excavate'for the new station  which they intenid to put in.  SIDEWALKS NEXT  WEEK.  In the making of a new town iu  the west there are times when excitement runs high, and it is the  fellow who gets in on the grounu  floor that has a chance of making a  stake, although, he often does not  do so, I *   ���������"  For many years if has been bo-  lie ved that there was coal in the  Sumas mountain, but thematterof  late years had never been thorough  ly gone into until a week or so  ago.  Next week it is expected that  the provincial government will bf-  in a position to start the sidewalks  .in Abbotsford along Essendene  Avenue. It is rumored that both  sides of the street will have sidewalks, no partiality being shown.  THE CLAYBURN ROAD  \ The government work on Clay  : barn road is going along nicely.  | It appears that this is a very diffi  J cult piece of work and the progess  ���������lis  therefore slow.   A  good job  is  Mr. W. A. McCallum returned Hi* i1 Is being made and will when corn-  to  town on Tuesday morning.  pleted be a credit to the district.  (From Our Own Correspondent)  Boost for Peardonville, and you  will  be  boosting .for      something  that has a genuine ring about it.  Some  young .Jadies  think? walking preferable to  riding in tour-^.  ing automobiles especially    when  gasoline  is  scarce. .  Abbotsford was well represent  ed in PeardonvilleJast Friday with  three of her most prominent men,  Messrs Blair, McPhee and .Cruick-  shanks.  Mr. and Mrs. George Gardner lost  their house by fire some time ago.  Our school was suddenly closed  on account of our teacher getting  married.  Mr. Ivan Gardner and Miss Winnie MacRury were united in marriage on the 21st of last month  and are living .in Sedro-Wooley.  Little John Falkiner put his arm  out of joint again.  The doctor seems to bei in great  demand in this vicinity lately.  Peardonville livery stab'-e is closed, that is the reason the girls did  not get to the last dance.  As usual the dance in Peardonville Hall last Saturday evening  was a grand success.  Anybody caught riding other  people's horses will be prosecuted  according to law.    '     '"  Peardonville is sadly in need of  an   ordained  minister.  Mr. Groves of Peardonville has'  jubt returned from Vancouver  from visiting .friends.  Mrs. H. Llewellyn of Vancouver  is spending a few days With her  parents. .  We all intend to celebrate a jolly  first of July with Mt Lehman, We  are assured of a pleasant time aa  over there they can make a good  fellow feel at home.  We all wish the Post success.  Miss Crawford has resigned her  position as principal of our school  same to take effect at the close of  the summer holidays. Miss Crawford has made many friends during  the two years she has been .in Abbotsford among the children and  parents, who will be sorry to see  I htr leave.  1 Four)  THE ABBOTSFORD POST,      ABBOTSFORD, B.

How is  it to be gotten n the. question that  presents itself to all; It wi'.l no  doubt.be easy t:> secure the travelling library from the provincial  government at Victoria, but 'when  thit.id gotten the work is on!\ begun and the 'long felt want" ,on-  partly filled There are the papers and the magazines, which are  always acceptable ������.'nJ ���������* f rm a  very necessary part of anyread'ng  room. How are these to be gotten  We would say by individuals do  nating one or more of ;these.  Suggestions-as to the best way  of having .a good reading room  and library will be thankfully received by the Post.  In   speaking   cf   pubMc   libraries  it  has  often   suggested' itself    to  ud that, here is a work Which- the  churches   united   could   very  well  look after should they feel so  inclined- to do  so.Yet so far as  wb  kuowit is neglected  and not look  ed upon as a duty by those' in best  position to do so and carry on the  work   successfully   By , the   united  co-operation  of  the   churches    in  this   matter,   many   a'young  man  away fro rchome would have cause  to thank those who took the mat  ter inhand.
