The  Reeve suggested that before the coun  cil would make any payments to-  Avards the League the people should  be given an opportunity to learn  Avhat the League Avas attempting to  do. Mr. Abbott agreed to address  meetings on any night excepting on  Mon:lay or Saturday. It was. decided tp hold meetings at Malawi vill  ajve, Abbotsford, Mt Lehman and also  Foardonville at.the.call of the Reeve  the Tim to be held at Matsqui village  en Wednesday, July-2.9th.  As the council had chosen the  30th of September as the last day on  Avhic.h the, rebate will be allowed on  taxes 'for the current year, it had  been'found necessary to make arrangements Avith the bank of Montreal  for a further loan to carry on the  business of the council. The bank  had agreed to advance $8,000 as re-  ing.    OAving  to   the  demand   being  over and  the soft condition of the  berries  it  is  impossible     for     the  Avholesaler   to   get" anything"  like  a  decent price. "   >  ���������   Blackberries   are" coming   rapidly  and it is  the  general v opinion  that  the  demand  for these  will  not  be  great owing to the .large sales of the  raspeberries  this  season.    At - present blacks are selling wholesale at  J.$1.50 per crate and growers are advised to distribute; their output . in  small   lots  to-the?,different   dealers  and get into as many towns as possible , Owing "to, tlie present condit  ions  of   the  coast'; markets   it will  only take one glut Vo- break the' market, for the season.^. ���������' ^., ;  Rhubarb is,, still x being--,' 'shipped in  but finds  a./yery  pobiy;sale-? as the  season is':.oyer'and retailers--find it  impossible, "to ������������������ dispose   of  it   at  all,  the only buyers" being, a few' restaur  ants who can use, only a'very limited supply, the/"dump" getting the  greater ��������� pef-centagM-of-: the-shipments  -.Local 'apples   from   the   different  parts   of '- the * valley  are - finding  a  ready sale -on the "row'!..at the fol-  loAving' prices.No.  1,  $1.-75;   No.. 2,  $1.50; No..3, $l!25. ' A' marked-improvement'can be-seen in-the. marking and grading, of the. apples since  the   commencement  of..the:   season  and   it~-is"' hoped   that   the. shippers  will ��������� stiir continue. to   improve  the  pack; and' grade of their fruits and  bring it  up to the standard  where  it. should   be.    Apple  shippers  are  advised to either wrap ��������� their apples  or at least use box linings.    To do  this  is  very  little  extra  cost  and  adds a great deal to the appearance  of  the  fruit.  - Yakima apples, good stock, No. 1  Yellow" Transparent are seling for  $1.65 per box.  Cherries, preserving (Oivette) in  strawberry crates, $1.50 to $2.00.  Very plentiful and demand poor; extra fine stock from Vancouver Island  Owing- to a large supply being on  hand at noon Saturday it was necessary for the jobbers to cut doAvn  the price rather than carry these  over the week end with the possi  bility  of  losing them  altogether.

Local fruits' in the stores are con  spicuous by their .absence. Chinese  grown vegetables - are very much to  the front both,in the retail stores  and on the City Market. Farmers  should make a decided effort to com  bat this by bringing a greater number of varieties and go after the  business in earneest.  Several shipments of early apples  were on the market and sold for  good figures' considering the grade  and pack. Preserving plums sold  readily at 7-5c per crate. Potatoes  insingle sack lots brought $1.25 per  sack .while in ton lots $22.50. Tho  attendance  at  the  City  Market    ia  These . Sunday gam'es are looked  forward to and greatly appreciated  by'fans throughout the Valley and  it is the intention of the local boys  to satisfy their appetite in this respect during the , remainder of the  season.  of good quality there is no doubt  but that the demand and the prices  Avill be all right.  Summary  Plums are making their appearance on the coast markets and the  shippers are advised to get, - right  doAvn to business and pack and grad-  their fruitin a proper manner in order to show the trade that we have  the  goods.  Plums should be picked on the'  green side and sweated over night  before packing. Packing in ,4-lb bas  ket crates. Always use paper between the rows (tiers) and grade  according to ripeness and size. Fill  the baskets to hold 5lbs nett, and  do not worry if you get. plums up  above, the box ends. . This is easily  fixed" by putting" a "raiser underneath'  cover. It-is common to find plums  'on the market in all kinds and siz-  >es of boxes, some in split cedar box  es; "some "in1 apple boxes, and it too  often "the case Avhere the shipper  uses the proper crate to find anywhere-from 12 to 16 pounds thrown  into the boxes loosely instead of 20  lbs neatly.packed.  On-July 25th a shipment of cherries were noticed on the Avholesale  row   in   Vancouver.    This   shipment  contained 15 crates. ' The crates us- games.

U. held a  most interesting meeting at the Presbyterian church on-Monday, July 20  The churcli was beautiful with flowers and white ribbon bows, There  Avas a good attendance.  The delegates'from the provincial  convention gave their reports. Mrs  J. L.- Campbell reported the first days  work, speaking of the feeling of  friendship and the spirit of unity  that one feels at such gatherings.  Mrs. (Rev.) Miller of Clayburn re  ported the second days Avork in a  splendid Avay. She gave us much to  remember  Mrs. Parton, our most faithful at  tendant at Conventions, filled in the  details of the others and reported  the closing days "work. ��������� As usual  her report was witty and Avis'e, full  of good thought and happy expressions  During the afternoon - Miss Elma  Bell sang :"Lame,Tame Excuses" and  Miss Porter of Clayburn also sang.  After the meeting adjourned,  all  were invited to  Mrs.  Boyd's for1 "a ���������  cup of tea"        -    ��������� '  Altogether the meeting was a -very '  great success.  - Others  will  be  held  later.      i  MARRIED MEN GET RAW  DECISION IN BASEBALL  -Another strenuous game of ball  was,pulled off on the school grounds ,  on Wednesday evening Avhen the  single ball players of town again met  their..natural, enemies in the person  of the more fortunate-brethren; the.  married men. Again,, as on a previous occasion, the score is. being  kept a secret, and that'is just as well  for all concerned.  The married- men claim that they .

The  baskets were about three parts full  and contained almost as many leaves  and as much dirt as cherries. Look  ed though the bunches of cherries  had been pulled off the tree, taking  Avith them leaves and twigs, and  these thrown on the ground and  then shovelled into the baskets.  These will no doubt have to be  slumped ' off to a peddler avIio Avill,  in his course around the city show  them to hundreds of people. " Think  of the advertising. Such shipments as  these do not give satisfaction to  the consumer, nor do they bring  decent returns to the shipper.  Shipments of local apples* Avere  noticed -on the NeAv Westminster  market in boxes, of three different sizes, viz: Apple boxes, short  pear boxes and the old or long pear  box. This in itself causes confusion in the prices. One shipper used  grade" marks that have not been in  actual use for years. Marks for  designating the grading in apples are  four in number, viz:  Fancy, No.  1;  let William J. Bryan officiate.

The srouis "were joined at  Huntingdon by t-he-scouts from that  locality and in ��������� the afternoon they  all embarked in automobile's at Sumas and left for the camping ground.  ��������� This event has- been eagerly looked  fonvard to by the scouts and that  they will' enjoy themselves and will  profit by the outing goes without  saying. Besides the v pleasure part  of the holiday the*boys are drilled  in discipline and are' put through  their paces each' day. They "are also .  taught many useful lessons such as  pitching camp, cooking and all those  things that older heads often regret  not having been taught.  The W.

This bylaw entitled tho  Temporary Loan Bylaw 1914, No. 2,  was introduced by Coun. Melander  chairman of the Finance committee  and was regularly passed 'through  the first second and third readings.  The council then adjourned to  meet in the Municipal Hall on Satur-  sot. to it that the quality and M&n-  dard of the pack is right, as it is  folly for the growers to think that  a market place is for the purpose of  getting rid of inferior stuff. Farmers who cannot find time to pack  and grade their fruit in a proper  manner should sell in bulk to some  one who can, or feed it to the hogs  Farmers little think that it is their  folly of poor packing, poor grading  and poor honesty that are some of  the reasons why British* Columbia  citizens pay out approximately $100,  000 a year in duteis on American  fruit and vegetables.

"Fighting Joe" started out not as  an ordinary Liberal, but as an . extraordinary Radical.
