The secretary read letters from  the Great Northern Railway Company, the C. P. IR. and several municipalities.   The G. N. R. through  Mr. F. W. Graham enthusiastically  supported the Objects of the association and promised every ^assidt-  ance in furthering the development  of the Fraser Valley, the tardy settlement of which'had long been the  subject of comment.   His company  was as much interested in. the development of the country in Byilish  Columbia as it was inL Washington.

Mr.  Jackman 'said" the  Burnaby  subscription   was   already   at   the  bureau's disposal.  The  following   resolutions  were  passed: 4  1. That a co-operative information bureau of the Fraser.

JULY 26    1912  The scheme of the Fraser Valley  Bureau has been sufficiently-maoe  public I'rom the numerous notices  of the .two meetings held in New  Westminster, appearing in the press  distributing news to the Valley. Almost every man who has taken an  intorest in the future of the Fraser  Valley has read these reports ana  has   iormed   his   own   opinions   nu '  regards    the    aims    of    the   ae v,  league.  It is true that the Fraser Valley  is r.ot as well known to the outsid.-  world  as  are the numerous  other  Valleys o,f the Pacific Coast.   Thib  can be  accounted  for by the fact  - that no. comprehensive scheme of  advertising   has   yet  been  earned  out as thoroughly as it should be  to  make   the  Fraser  Valley   from  the east to the    west,    from    tne  north to the south, as .thoroughly  known as are some of the rich valleys that slope to the west in, the  country to the south of us.   Man*  of these districts have had books  both  large  and   small,  distributed  generously and widely.   Large sums  c of money have been spent in print ���������  em"ink without  stint  and -the result' that, many parts of the country are probably as well advertised as are some of the large cilie>  of  the Pacific Coast.  It is the settler that the Valley  along the Fraser River wants; and  there is plenty of room for'him to  make   a   home just as comfortable  and pleasant as in any other pail  of the world and in  a climate that  is second to none.   During the past  '     two years there have been  a lot of 1  settlers come to make their homcc  in the different districts throughout the Valley, but so large is the  amount of land that is to be taken  La^is^nder cultivation and a good  home.   The man who comes in anu  pays for his land o.ut and out and  places' it under .proper cultivation  by cash that he has earned elsewhere; does not value it so much  It is human nature that it should.  be   that  the  harder  that    <v  mam-  works tor Wiethe gets the. more  he appreciates it, and; he probably  calces a better citizen.  Thon the other detriment is. the  lack of go.od noads throughout the  valley. -It  ifl   a   well known  fact  that there are many; acres of land  throughout the different districts  of the Valley that cannot be reacn  ed by goad roa'ds-some no.road at  all    Some  scheming fellow comes  along and buys this land for the  purpose   of   speculation.   He   succeeds   in   enticing   some  fellow-  possibly   new   to  the  country,  to  purchase this land from him.   The  new  settler  takes  all his  earthl>  belongings to his new home, poa-  sibly during the beautiful days ot  summer m-  early  fall.   When  the  wetweathersetsinhereal-zeBlhat  the council has not carried .out the  promises that the seller .of the land  tod  told   him   they  would,      His  outlet to the main artery of traffic to. the market is such that he  cannot enjoy  the  comforts; of life  Then   there   is   trouble.   Not .on.*  thousand   miles   torn  Abbotsford  are samples of this.   It is pot   ��������� a  good advertisement to the district  that  land   should  be  sold  to  the  tenderfoot where it will ctfst hundreds of dollars, or perhaps thous  ands, tp connect his home with   a  ��������� - i i   f n mnrltpt    It is done  good   road   t o marker.  and done every season though.  One o,f the greatest goods to tho  incoming settler and those who jtro  already here is to have these two  evils removed.  COUNTRY   MERCHANT   TALKS  ON NEWSPAPER  \  ADVERTISING     i. .  An unusual feature of the meeting of the Western Iowa Editorial,  association at Council Bluffs, recent  ly was an address on the subject  of advertising .from the viewpoint  of the  retail merchant  by; David  Oransky,   a  well known merchant  and advertiser oi Atlantic, la.   Mr.  Oransky spoke on "Retail Advertising From the Viewpoint .'of the  Merchant," land he  declared   that  the merchant should advertise the  amount or iana uia������. >������ i������ - ���������    quality  and    adaptability   o������    his  up that no one man  icalizes just   goods rather thai!.depend on ad-  up  inai. no yertising prices.   He spoke an part  *hat is being done in the way. of   ver        g P . <.  as follows:  It is  a sad but toio true fact that  country merchants, as  a' rule, are  not   extensive   advertisers.   I   am  convinced that they should advertise regularly and /persistently  We  want  tne  new. acw^-,   ������- . " jn-. thi8 great period of progress  can place them in the'way of mak- jand advancement mere storekeep-   a ������������������������������������w,niaiin������������   ������k fn.. no ionerer succeed. It lakes  settlement. Should the same rate  of progress go om for the next ten  years there is no doubt it would  begin to be noticeable.  We  want  the  new. settlers,  we J  ing good money and accumulating  successful bank accounts, but there  are two things that will have to be  greatly altered before the settler  of the Eraser Valley .can enjoy life  as he should.   One of these is that  the price of land must conie down  t  oits   normal  value.   Good  clear  Land 1b invaluable; it depends upon  who the  owner is as to .whether  it is as productive, as it should be  ���������whether he can get all out of the  land each season that it is ypssible:  Bush land is not valuable until tjic  horny handed son of toil has cleared the stumps away, and placed it  under   proper   cultivation.      Bush  land   is   too  high in this-country  It is the man who conies and take.i  up ten acres, possessing but little:  money but with ia  brave heart lo  stand   against  all   the  difficulties  that obtain in a new country thai  wins out in the end, because he ap  preciates  what  he   has  when   his  ers can no longer succeed. It lakes  live,  aggressive,  wideawake merchants to succeed today.   The successful merchant of today,whether  in the large city or the smajl town,  must deal with modern conditions.  One of the most impostant of these  is the fact that this is . a great age  of  publicity.   Printer's  ink  is   today selling more goods thap ever  before bn the world's history, and  from present indications its usefulness in this respect is only beguir  ning. 't  People depend upon their newspapers and magazines for information on what to buy and where to  buy. If we would be successful we  must tell the [public what we have  to offer. We must, through the judicious use of printer's ink, convince the people that our warea  are desirable and that our values-  are consistent with the prices ask-,  od. The ultimate end of the non-  udvertiBtng retailer is very prophetically depicted in a little incident   credited   to  Mark   Twain.  spider in hi. copy of the Pap* anu  wrote Mark asking what it meant  The reply was that the spider wm  looking oyer the columns of nc  paper to ascertain who were the  ^advertisers so thatlie could  woave his web over their doors  So  if  the  small town merchant,  does not, advertise the  neople of  his community are not;advised of  the fact that he has reliable and ue  sirable-goods or that he offers excellent values.   They read, ^e announcements of the large city merchants; they are attracted to the  cities,   or  in too  many  instances  they fall victims to the alluring literature of the mail order house*.  Trade which rightfully belongs to  them is leaving solely beeouse of  lack of publicity.   For this reason  it is obvious that extensive adver  tising is one of the strongest weap  ons that the country merchant possesses against the giant mail order  housed  But if it is true that it pays, the  small town merchant, to advertise  extensively, if it is true that aa-  vertising is one of the merchants  most extensive means of combating the mighty mail order establishments, then you ask, Why is il  that he advertises so little?  There  appears to be  two reasons.   The first applies to. I Hope.  to   a   very small per cent of tho  existing dealers.* tThey   are   not  progressive; they .believe what was  true  ten  or twenty  years ago  is  true  today; they forget  that ihifl  ia an age of Ipublicity; they do not  understand the mighty (power  ol  adverting.- In   short,   they   .are  what we would term "old fogies.'  But,   gentlemen,  do, not  class  all  merchants who, are not liberal timers of printer's ink. as back num  bens  Advertising  is   a   difficult  proposition,  and it is  especially, difficult for the .Bmall town merchant.-  I   say  advertising  pays,  but  that  doesn't mean that if I *u* .large  quantities of space and fill it full  of type that I get results.     The  very  fact that this  is an  age ot  jublicity makes it all the more'difficult to prepare, winning  advertisements.     Hundreds   -f., amusements  are printed -daily ,, The  country  merchant's    printed    announcements   must  compete  with  those of the city merchants   and  matt order, houses, which, by the  way, are carefully prepared by advertising, specialists.   The. advertiser must, therefore, make his advertisements  attractive.   He  mubt  study, first p.f all, the layout; lie  must carefully plan an arrangemeot  so that he may obtain an effective  appearance.  But, although the arrangement  and layout Bhoutd "be the first consideration of the advertiser, ltfis  evident from the appearance -of-  most country merchants' ads. that  their, first consideration is the text.  Here again the merchant has some  difficult work mapped out for ban.  He must first determine what to  advertise, arid' then oomes the dfi-.  scription and argument,-''  The most profitable /and mostdif  ficult  method of advertising  and  which  method is. seldom usea" by  the small town merchant is to exploit  the  quality, style, -newness,  worth and desirability oi his merchandise with consistent price as a  minor consideration.   But can you  imagine1 the country merchant with  so many different lines of good.,  on hiB shelves attempting .to deter  mine  the logical' items to ad*ei  tise,   attempting 'to  describe   the  features of his merchandise which  win appeal to the public, attempt-'  ing to choose, or rather, lind th?  words,   phrases -land   expression it  which will suggest the desirability  of .his-wares?   Does not this suggest   to   your' mind some of ..the  pi oblems of the country advertw-  er?,- . :.,., .-' ������������������'.''.������������������"':,:-'   ���������'���������'   ������������������'    ' '  AXLE GREASE, '       ,     <!

OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO  VALUE OF SNOW FENCES  Better    Crops     Bcsiilt     When     the  Farmer  Holds  Uic  Winter's  Snow ou his Fields.  The progressive observant, nature  of one of the Neepuwa farmers a  revealed when he makes known his  intention to build snow fences to hold  the next winter's, snow oa his fields.  During the past year his observat on  showed, that in places where the  snow had blown off in the winter the  otand of grain this season is very  poor. Whether it is the absence of  snow that is responsible for the Po r  crop in spots is not the, question for  consideration,' although many, farmers  observe that in years when the snow--  fall is heavy the crop following is  usually a very good one.  The' suggestion- of erecting temporary fences will solve the problem of  homing snow, on the fields. Every -  year railway companies erect nun-  drede of miles of temporary tence^o  Btop the snow from blocking* their  lines of traffic. Why canot the tanner expend a small amount of money  Fn preventing the show from blowing .  as it does on the open fieldb? The  work can be done ,when the farm  operations" are finished and winter  reigns. Any observant person knows  ttie places on which the snow will be  likely to blow off, and by erecting  some fence can probably save a piece  of land from being bare of snow.
