Croke, son of Mr. Chas.  C.Croke, Mission City, who .'left-with  the first Canadian contingent, has  written home that he.is a prisoner of  war' in Germany. His present address is Arthur G. Croke, Kr-tegsge-  fangenon Lager, Giessen, Germany���������  some address, Eh?     -  He writes that he is .in good  health and that he and his pals' in  captivity are being treated very^well.  They are living in big huts and every  thing is perfectly clean. They get  plain food, but there is apparently  lots of it. They are allowed to receive letters and parcels, and like to  "get letters, but not to( put anything  in their letters about the war as they  are read before the prisoners receive  them.  It is understood that the prisoners  are allowed to write only two letters  and four postcards a month, and he  has given instructions to write to a  number of his friends as ho cannot  write to. everybody:  The letter in part says:  "Things have changed a bit since  you last heard from me. I was tak-  ,en prisoner on the 24th of April. We  put up an awful scrap, but it was no  use. We few that are left are getting treated very good, and I hope  we will soon be back to Canada a-  gain. We cannot write letters every day, so I would like to have you  write some of my friends for me.  I received a bad wound through  tiie' hip, and cannot navigate very  good.    Hope to be  well soon. I  suppose you have read about us in  the papers before this. What do they  say about us? The Gorman papers  gave us great praise. They said we  put up a good hard fight , I got my  wound from a maxim gun. It makes  a good souvenir. My coat was just  riddled. 'Say will you send me a  few sacks of that Bull Durham tobacco and papers as the tobacco over  here is not to my taste, and tobacco  is a great comfort.  Say that long word at the heading  of the letter means, "prisoner of  war'  Try and save any reports of our  fighting last month, for me to see  when I come back, and remember me  to the rest of the folks.  Hoping to hear from you very  soon."  Mr.   Charles   Hill-Tout   Chosen     To  Deliver"'Popular. Lecture'1' By  * .  Royal Society of Canada  1 British Columbia and the Braser  Valley have been honored, by the  invitation, extended to a British Columbian by the Royal Society of Canada to deliver before the members  of that society what is known as  the "Popular' Lecture," at the annual gathering in Ottawa. This.was  the first.time such an invitation had  been extended to a member west of  Winnipeg and Mr. Charles Hill-Tout  of Abbotsford, who is a. Fellow of  the Royal Society, was chosen. Ottawa newspapers just to .hand indicate that he was -in brilliant form  and they speak very flatteringly of  the lecturer and his lecture, which  he entitled-"The Antiquity of" Man  in the Light of -Modern Discovery."  The address which was profusely  illustrated, was delivered in the  ball room of the Chateau Lau'rier  before a distinguished company of  between 300 and 400."  "The Lecturer." observes the Ottawa Citizen, "dealt fascinatingly  with bis subject ancl, proved that  sometimes a study which' is "popularly believed to' be 'dry' is the  most'"absorbing _to.be 'found." Sir-  James Grant, who proposed the vote  of thanks to Mr. Hill-Tout, remarked  that in all' the "years' he had. lieen-  connocted with the Royal Society he'  had never listened, with so, much  pleasure and profit to any address  given before the society.  After leaving .Ottawa Mr. Hill-  Tout - proceeded to Santa Fe, where  he is to address the American School  of Archaeology.

A. BATES, i       -..'        Editor and Proprietor  FRIDAY,  JUNE  11TI-I,   1915.  The Vancouver market promises to be a success if carried on  according to the.good plan started on Saturday last, and will  receive the support of the farmers of the Fraser Valley and the  patronage of the people of Vancouver'city. The residents of  the country districts and the residents of the cities of Vancouver and New Westminster need to get closer acquainted in order  to develop the country and make the cities grow. With a good  long established market in New Westminster and another one  on the same principles growing in Vancouver there will not.be  much need for the importing of so much product from the American side; and there will be no need of the.products of the Fraser  Valley, lying rotting on the'ground. Both the consumers of the  cities and the producers of the Valley will surely profit by having a good market in both cities. The.market has to a certain  extent the making of the city of New Westminster where they  do not call it Friday but" "Market Day". Friday is not, on the  calendar for a true New Westminsterite. ���������  HATZIC FLOWER SHOW <  "     ���������    IS A SUCCESS-  A good market in Westminster cannot detract from benefits  of a market day in Vancouver on the day following, if anything  it will have the effect of strenthening the market at New Westminister as those whcT attend the market will go with a larger  and more varied supply, aiid probably if there is anything left  over will be taken to the next market the next day. . This will  give the grower a greater incentive to .attend,the market on Friday, and redound to the benefit of the city of New Westminster, j  Westminster then should encourage the grower to come to New  Westminster1" first.  Excitement in Greece is also certain to be stimulated by Italy's  decision. Albania adjoins the Grecian sphere and if Italy comes  in for any rewards in the shape of islands in the Aegean they  are bound to be islands to which Greece has a race claim. Greece  might Ue willing to see Italy take Avlona, .and the island of  Saseno, just off that port, which could be made another Heligoland and so command the mouth of the Adriatic but Greece  would never see with willing eye a division of Albania between-  Italy and Serbia, with her own interests ignored:  Just to cheer yourself up, remember that there was once a war  which lasted so long that it was called the Hundred Year's War.-  Poor cheer! Isn't it?  "Business as Usual" means being thoroughly British in every  respect.. British in every respect means, confining one's interests in business with those things which are truly British in every respect. It does not mean employing foreigners:- it does  not mean having any truck or trade with those who are or have  been...identified with Britain's enemies: it does, not mean to  have the right to criticise those who are at the head of affairs  in Great Britain at the present time; it means doing or-saying  nothing that can be construed'in any way, shape "of form as  being in sympathy with our "alien enemies". .  Britain states on oath that the Lusitania did not carry any  arms. Will the United States believe Britain or Germany. Being neutral, therefore possessed of fair play in the matter there  can be no doubt whom the United States will accept the word  of���������a Britain of course.  It is reported that Sir Richard will shortly sail for Canada a-  gain, this should encourage the politician to greater and more  vigorous abuse of the government and give Billy Bowser a great  big rest. He has, had a strenuous time lately, and appears to  have kept his head through it all, even if there was- a "Crisis in  B. C."  Do the soldiers of the Allies greet each other with, 'Good  Morning, have you killed your German yet?'  In the reports we read that the Allies drove the Germans out  of a cemetery.    This is not right.    They should be driving them  into a cemetery.    And they will long before Potsdam is reach  ed.-  "Keep a good front'  abroad.  is Kitchener's motto both at home and  There will soon be more flies on the Kaiser than he can ever  hope to get out of the ointment���������the Americans are warned to  fly.

We had four days of steady cold  rain last week which AVas bad for  trade. One car of vMissiouris was in  and ��������� one of Hood River. Consider  able of these were sent out of town  through other distributing centres.  They were firm and dry while a lot  of B. C.'s were wet. . When a dealer had to carry a few cups of B. C.'s  over night they were almost worthless. This worked as a handicap a-  gainst B. ,C.'s in favor of the foreign  Saturday, were not su cient for the  demand; Monday arrivals were quite  heavy. It is unfortunate shippers  will not send more to Edmoton and  Medicine Hat as advised. The time  of arrival at those points is practically the^same, except No. 4 shipments  Some shippers have berries as good  as any across the line. When more  such are grown we can keep the A-  merican out as there will then be  no excuse for bringing them in. The  markets have kept fairly steady for  firm, bright, colored berries. Car of  Vancouver Island passed here Sunday night for Edmonton, 742 crates  were fine berries in fine condition.  VERNON FRUIT CO., LTD.  S. J. Fee, Manager.
