F. with their families joined other  Odd Fellows of the Fraser Valley in  their picnic to Vedder River picnic  grounds on Empire Day; a iarge  number of residents went with the  Abbotsford band to the crowning of  the May Queen ..at Mission City;  others had family reunions and picnic parties; others spent the forenoon  in selling tickets for the Chautauqua,  driving many miles around to give  everv one the opportunity to buy  season tickets, and at the afternoon  and evening performances there was  a large attendance. Miss A. Victoria  Smith, the superintendent, was introduced'at the afternoon performance, and very happily addressed the  audience. The bell-ringers, with  songs, quartettes and recitations  gave a pleasing programme. At  night they entertained with a prelude which was much enjoyed. Then  Miss Laut gave a strong interesting  address on "Canada at the Crossroads of her Destiny," which showed  tha, opportunities for Canada in the  20th century because of her wonderful resources, mining, ols, timber  and pulpwood. Canada has not yet  realized her wonderous wealth of  resources, and success must have  unity of aim, unity of activity and  unity of destiny. Her address was  a revelation to a very large audience,  who greatly appreciated it. Many ro-  mained-to ask questions. It would be  impossible to give in detail descriptions of all the enjoyable and interesting programmes put on but the  'Chautauqua people proved to be most  'charming entertainers.  PARTY AT HOME   OF MUS.   HART  At Huntingdon recently a very  happy party was held at the. home of  Mr. and Mrs. G. W. Hart. Mrs'.

In a few weeks a  social, entertainment* and concert will  lie given at the home of Mrs. Hart  under the auspices of St. Paul Is" Presbyterian church, when an excellent  programme   will   be   provided.

There is little  doubt that we have now entered upon a long era of declining prices.  Tor years before and during the war,  prices1 continually., ascended.

However, experience of  history lias definitely ' shown that a.  country may enjoy a period of prosperity during a period of falling  prices.

Previous to this time, how  ever,   there    had   been   several    at  tempts   at   linen   manufacture,  and  mills established   in   different  part?  of Canada,  but  all  had  resulted   ir  failure.,'From'the earliest psriod of  human  history till 'almost  the ch-.s-  of -the /eighteenth    century,    linen  manufacture was one of the most ex  tensive ancl   widely  disseminated  ol  the domestic industries of  European  countries.    It  was most largely  de-  valoped   in    Russia,   Austria,   Ger  many, Holland,   Belgium';   Northern  Prance, certain  parts   of    England  the  North  of  Ireland ancl  through  out   Scotland.     In   the, latter   part  ������f the eighteenth century the invention  of  cotton  spinning   niichinery  f;aro the  linen  weaving  industry .'������  atal blow.    Domestic spinning and  weaving began to  shrink   and  with  it hand loom weaving.  In  1815, at  Darlington,   England  A itia^hine was invented, which after  many improvements   and   modifica  tiorwi  haa  become   the  perfect  sys  tarn of machinery with which at the  present day lihen spinning mills are  furnished. The discovery of a process for the mechanical spinring of  linen yarn :for weaving into cloth  by powei' loom was much slower  than in the corresponding etisc of  cotton.  There are two branches in the  riodern manuffuture, spinning and  weaving, to which m?y be added  bleaching and various finishirm pro  ���������e.-"?es. The flax fibre is re.'oiveri  ii. !i :ullos Cruni the scutch 'mil's and  .ifter having been classed into vari-  ���������).up grades acco^'inrr to the q'lality  of tro material, is labelled and  placed' in store ready for the TUx  mill. ���������'. ��������� ;���������������������������'��������� ���������  When the manufacture of I ben in  Canada was successfully s!:ar'.ed,-'the  idea was to purchase yarns from the  Continental and 'Irish =r!in.".i"n- mills,  who were being supplied with   Rus  sian   flax,   at   a   price   much   below  that for which flax could be grown  in   Canada.     As   most  of   the   linen  manufacturers in Ireland were weav  ors   only,  buying   their  yarns   from  spinners, it was'-thouo-ht1 quite possible   and   feasible    that    the  feann;  method could he employed.-.vith success in Canada, and prior to the war.  the linen business depended entirely  on   these  imported   yarns   to   keep  their  plants in  operation.  In the year 1913, it is estimated  that Russia produced about 400,000  tons of flax, and other European  countries, including Great Britain  and  Ireland,  100,000 tons.  With the complete collapse oi  Russia in 1918, it became evident  that if the linen business was'to be  continued in Canada, it would be  necessary to establish a spinning  plant here, to spin the Canadian  grown flax, which with the improved  methods of cultivation, were proven  crp.ifil to or better than the Russian  flax, on which the industry had relied previous to the war. A modern  flax spinning plant,'-' which would  complete the chain of-linen manufacturers and make the business a  purely Canadian one has "been''installed at Guelph and is now in full  running orjer. This plant has been  equipped with the latest modern dry  and wet spinning systems. To secure the highest quality of linen  yarns, workers were brought from  rielgium," via the C.P.R., who were  experienced in water retting flax,  similar to the finest Flemish and  Belgian flax which are used for producing the highest grade linens.  Establishment of a confederation  of British America to include Canada  ancl the British eolonies' of the Bahamas. Barbadoes. Bermuda.

The idea of, a united commonwealth of British .America was represented in the report as a further  development of the union which be-  Vun with the confederation of the  four provinces'of Canada In j857.  Reference was made to the conference which was held in Ottawa in  June, 1920, and attended by representatives of all the British colonies  of the Americas for the purpose of  drawing up a trade agreement, since  ratified by a majority of tho colon-  es concerned.

The  first is that the co-ordination of  these two units of the National System is real, and not lip-thin; the  second that the western lines of the  Canadian National Railways have  been the means of a real' development in connection with the production of natural products in the western   provinces.  ��������� There is a reasonable expectation  that the tide of immigration ere long  will be assuming the proportions of  pre-war years.

This" year, our own immigra-  Ition officials believe the influx will  ���������be great and that Western Canada  will witness one of the busiest seasons since the country was opened up  to settlement. The volume, of last  vear's immigration was produced by  the closest kind of team play between  the C. N. R. immigration men, operating both in Canada and the United  States.
