Mr. J. McPhee, chairman of the  Abbotsford Board;.stated that Sumas  and Matsqui children now- constituted 62 per cent, of the Abbotsford  School'attendance.-    -,���������----.-������������������- -    -  An "outside building had been rented to accomodate forty-si:.' pupils,  but the place was" unsuited to Ihe  purpose and could not hold tho anticipated increase of pupils, in September.  Trustee McPhail of Sumas reported that his board/was negotiating for  a new school at the west end of  their- district but this would only accomodate the junior scholars.  The suggestion that Abbotsford be  taken into Uie Matsqui School district was not favored by Uie board  owing to differences it would make  in   taxation.  It seemed to some members of the  Matsqui board that this was an excellent opportunity for Uie government  t.o step in and start a consolidaori  school. Abbotsford was a rural district, directly governed by Uie department, the other school areas could  be absorbed and a strong educational centre could be built up^vith domestic science, manual training and  other special facilities.  Inspector Anstey favored this  view, but pointed out that under the  present School and Municipal Acts  it was not feasible. So the meeting  was closed without solving the difficulty.'  A resolution was' carried inviting  the Hon. K. D. Harrow and Hon. J.  D. McLean (o a further meeting in  September, when the schools arc in  operation. Meanwhile , Abbotsford  will endeavor to carry on with its difficulties.  flooded lands a km  REINO   CULTIVATED  HUNTING DON.

RETIRES PROM BUSINESS  AFTER MANY YEARS HERE  GOOD LTOTJOR CACHED  IN  POTATOE  PATCH  Thirsty citizens from the land of  Uncle Sam who daily wander to this  oasis via the international border at  Huntingdon have discovered a new  way to secure their morning eye-  opener with out the need of hitting  the trail to Westminster the morning  after the night . before. The new  dodge seems to be a good one if  care is taken. The proud possessor  of a crock takes no chances of running foul of U. S. customs officials  when he returns home across the  'Hue for he plants his "hootch" in the  most convenient spot in and around  ���������the- Huntingdon side of the border.  That this dodge is being practised  by the knowing ones is' evident from  the fact that recently a small boy  found a perfectly good bottle "frac  the laud of the heather" concealed  among the green leaves of a potatoe  patch. Where or to whom went the  'prize is not known, but it is safe  to bet that the former owner went  minus for a few days. Another spot  that is a favorite these days with the  boys, is located under the wooden side  walks but extreme care must be taken not to mark the spot as all the  boards in the walk look alike and  there are a great many of them and it  is said that many have a hard time  in   locating their cache.  Services will be held in St. Math-  ew's Anglican Church at Abbotsford  every .Suuday night at 7.30. Rev. T.  E. Rowe, vicar.  The many    friends' of Mr.    J.    J.  Sparrow  will learn with regret that  he has decided to retire from active  business and he will be sadly missed  among - his   business' 'associates   and  the farmers of-t^e district. Mr. Sparrow, who'recently celebrated his" 67th  birthday" has disposed     of  his flour  and. feed     business to the    Farmers  Produce Co.,  Ltd.. and will  take    a  much needed rest.    The new owners  will take possession of the place    on  Monday   morning.  '8EL1/3   WO TONS OF   HAV   AT $12  LADNER, July 27.���������Mr.'A. D. Pat-  erson, M. L.

THE ABBOTSFORD POST-  ,7. A. BATES, Editor and Proprietor,  Published' Every Friday  FRIDAY,  ..IllLY.SI), 'HWl  At," White Rock pic-nic'.Premier Oliver said  (hat the province had-failed in doing its part  l.o secure a .good clean, strong administration  of the liquor act. Vor once this paper agrees  with Premier Oliver. The press of this province did fail in securing a good, clear administration to handle (he liquor act that was to  be. They helped to elect the wrong men to  be the powers that be to pass tho kind of  liquor act that the people of the province  voted for at the plebiscite last fall. " The present act was passed by an administration I hat  is today not the pride of the majority of the ,  people of the province���������that administration  Js responsible for the present act which the  liquor commissioners are trying their level  best fo make a success. ,11: is uphill work for  them. Mad the press of the province ,conic  out more boldly, especialy in the city of Vancouver and also Victoria, a more capable administration would have had control of the  liquor act. However as it is we believe the  press of the province are using every endeavor to see that the liquor act is carried out  with credit to tlie province���������eschewing all  politics  wherever  possible;.  ��������� Failure is so a pi to recognize failure where-  ever it is met; (hat is the reason Premier Oliver sees failure in the press of ihe province.  Tis true that the press of the province may  be elevated in the very near future. It is reported on very good authority that the Oliver  government has now one paper on which it  can depend for support, and money should  bring the very best support, editorially, to any  paper.  Useful public work is to be carried on this  coming winter. Public money is to be spent  in providing work for the unemployed of the  dominion; The dominion government is to  co-operate with the province and the province  with the municipalities, thus securing good  results. This is good as far as it goes and  it is hoped that beneficial results will follow.  In the province of t British Columbia it is  hinted that the work undertaken will probably be in land clearing, thus giving the tax  payer something to look at with the money  spent that will be beneficial. Why land clearing? Why not road-building fo help the poor  fellow already on the land, not the clearing of  more land to put the unfortunate settler on,to  travel over the present poorly attended roads  of the province. More land will undoubtedly  yield more taxes to the province, but of what  avail is more taxes for the present backbone  of the country; good roads would do more to  settle the i.nui ,.i. :n 'uv. ;'a.-i  .ana  cann*<^i~c/'~< * ���������  by the government, in our humble opinion.  We all know that government works,cost a  .great deal of; money, and ,if the government'  goes m(o land clearing, the cost of the land to  the intending settler would be much more  than if done by the settler himself. We have  not seen figures yet lo show that the land at  MerviJle has cost the province less than if  the land were cleared by the private individual. Perhaps the government has the figures  and if so we would like to see the government  organ publish these in qrder. to show the peo7  pie that this would eventually.be more beneficial fo the'province as,a whole than road  building. Do not let us go into this blindly-  and think we are doing the right kind of thing  with the people's money.  llwOCWG*.* t���������"*Ait  A Vancouver professor says there are only  3,790 cuss words in the English language. It is  safe to bet (hat he never drove the twenty-  three miles to Mabel. Lake in a hurry.���������lOnderby Commoner.  .Some of these cuss words could be used in  travelling over some of the roads of'lhe Fraser  Valley���������aud yet a, few more.'  Coalition government,in England is tottering to its fall when it issues an order that the  'London  Times and other newspapers of the  world metropolis who have dared fo criticise,  possibly unjustly, Lloyd George aud certain of  his ministers, shall be forbidden to receive the  news from the governmeni news service    in  common with all oilier newspapers of London..  This action shows a weakness on the part of  ihe Lloyd George ministry, and is an act that  wiil have fo be rescinded. It cannot be allowed  (o stand, if England is to continue fo have a.  free .press, and in receding from its untenable  position the government will have fo fake a  beating.    The prc^s of England, while not in  sympathy- with   Ihe  Northcliffe   newspapers,  must demand that the news ban be lifted.    If  savors too much of the days of autocracy when  "kings could do no wrong."���������Comnvgner.  We do not believe that the press of this  province or of any other province in the dominion, or in fact any Anglo-Saxon country  ever did any government1 or individual any  harm in any way. Criticism is good for the  individual in private life and criticism should  be good for the individual or government in  the press���������if wrong it will redound to the detriment of that part of the press:.which" gives  it, and that should be punishment enough for  the most fastidious. There may be exceptions  but these exceptions are so'few arid -far.be-  ween���������something like hens' teeth".  Man recognizes that the press of the country  is his best friend, or why should men be so  concerned as to what is published in the papers, and also, why should so many be anxious  to see their name iii print. We are not giving  away any of the secrets of the press when we  state that it is general for people to like to  see their name in print���������especially so if there  is nothing to hide.  The   Farmers'   government   in   Ontario has   shown    that while it    was  willing to step into power on a platform    which called for all sorts    ot  drastic,. even  radical,   changes,     tlie  net result has been that no changes  have taken place in the phases of Ontario's   governmental   functions     on  which the    Farmers'    campaign was  most vociferous. In-other words, the  career of the Drury government    in  Ontario     has    shown  the people    of  Canada  that the agrarian movement  is only sincere in its efforts to secure  power. The  matter  of   reforms,     of  economy:   in administration,  of nonpartisan control of civil service, and  all the other catch phrases by which  I Ik; Ontario aud the Alberta  farmers  gained power,    have no    more    real  meaning to a government by  organization than it has t.o the Oliver government in   P.ritish Columbia,  frankly ami openly    partisan as it has always been.  The Farmer government of Ontario promised economy when it took  ii|) the reins of office���������and the old  province never has spent so  much money as it is doing at I be  present, time.���������Kaniloops Standard-  Sentinel.  HOW   HHITISII   COLl'MULV  J������K\V/V������������S SISKVICU  Dr. Alexander Robinson has for  years' been one of the foremost educationists in British Columbia. Now  his career is to be abruptly termin-  ted by dismissal from a Victoria high  school by the school trustees of that  city.  Many   industrial   aud   commercial  leaders in this Province have passed J  jthroug-h   the hands of_Dr.  Robinson.  Me is gratefully remembered by many  who owe their    success, in a    great  measure, to his training and his sincere efforts.  Dr. Robinson has devoted a lifetime towards the establishment of  an educational system in British Columbia-. But now, in his old age, he  is to be made the butt of petty politicians in Victoria. As a reward for  long, faithful and extremely valuable service he is called before the  Board of Trustees and summarily  dismissed.  Tbe particular weighty problem  which is aggravating the minds of  this distinguished board of educational experts.is not pertinent to the  status of Dr. Alexander Robinson.  There is no reason why Dr. Robinson  should be required at bis age, to  teach at all. Surely his past services have been such as to earn him  honorable retirement with an adequate   pension.  If t-Iiits is the reward British Columbia holds out for a lifetime of. unselfish service, the people of British  Columbia are deliberately discouraging (hose big-souled men who appear  oner in a score of years to give their  youth and their energies to great  and noble causes.���������The Sun,  TABLE SETTING  Some simple rules-for the art of  setting a table include': '   -..  (1) First the tablecloth���������which  should be snowy and shiny���������must be  laid straight and without a wrinkle.

(4) Tea spoons go in front of the  plate.

The   domestic  breeding of foxes originated there and the  island has never ceased to maintain  the ascendancy, exporting each year  a   large   fur  pack   as  well   as  large  numbers of,breeding animals, and at  the same time, continually extending  the    number    of   existing    ranches.  j Dv.ring the past season for instance,  j more   than   a. million   dollars  worth  i of   silver   fox   pelts   left   the   island  shores,'and in the same period half  j.a���������'million dollars worth of breeding  i stock found its way  from  the same  ; source.'to  ranches situated  in every  ��������� ���������}.���������;:rt of the globe.

Therefore, common sense requires that every man,  woman and child who goes on the  water or avIio ever expects to go on  the wafer should learn the art of  swimming, at least to a degree where  they could, in case of necessity, keep  themselves afloat for a short period,  says an exchange.

Prairie Market Commis-'  sioner J. A.  Grant, in    his'    Calgary  bulletin.  Credit is due to the energy of the  Western Jobbers in securing a v/ido  distribution, to the Growers' Sales  and Scott Brokerage in distribution  and to the shipping associations for  widely advertising their wares.  The wet season, together with the  failure of ."the jam contractors at  (shipping end to take the usual supplies made the work for all the above  mentioned   interests   strenuous.  The total number of refrigerator  carloads arriving on the prairie is  138 1-2. The shipments in less than -  carload lots fell off materially, being  less than any year for at least four'  years pact. There are a number of  Japanese at Hammond and a few at  Hatdic who ship the bulk of the T. C  L.-stuff - betAveen them, and a few  white growers. They "kept a few  grocers, and groceterias supplied Avith  berries, and this with the direct, to  the consumer trade which Avas' Avide-  ly canvassed as Avell as the dual brok>  erage distribution allowed many  chances to arise to cut prices for below the cost of production.  The outstanding lesson in the season's work is the need of unified distribution, steady and reasonable prices. These two factors, although  imperfect saved the situation this  year, and made the 1921 season a  record oeason for distribution for IJ.  C. strawberries.  The patriotic man is loyal to his  country and to the community in  which he lives. If he is consistent he  will give first preference to Canadian  made goods Avhen making purchases.  He will also stand loyally by hie  local   dealer.

A few years  ago this. Avas the manner in which  early strawberries were shipped to  market. Tho result was'-that large  quantities of strawberries arrived,at  market in bad condition, and , the  monetary returns to the growers  were smallor than they should    have  been.  The non-ventilated crate, or "coffin box" as it is known is now Im  universal disrepute as a strawberry  container. Berries shipped in ventilated crates invariably command a  premium over berries shipped in no-  ventilated crates.

The correct pressure is sometimes stamped on the tire, but the  rule is' easy to learn: Twenty pounds  per inch of small diameter for Uie  rear wheels, and 18 pounds for the  front.
