 <jA?  Monday was petition day win  Matsqui council. Twenty ratepayes  signed a request for the completion  of the Marshall and Popular roads.  Th'-j.woirk was stopped last'year because funds gave out. Residents fear  that its resumption mayi be forgotten  .unless they keep the matter alive.  A "reviver" of $'lf>0 was appropriat-  " cd for ihe purpose.    ���������  ' To gravel the Aberdeen road, from  the Yalo road to the customs office  on the boundary, and'reduce, the  Campbell hill, eleven petitioners  urged the Council to give instant  action, as this is a rural mail route.  Councillor Glcdhill will go over tho  road and then order the necessary  work to be done.  ' ��������� Councillor Keay will 'arrange to  answer the petition of eighteen land  owners on the western edge, of. the  municipality who would have .the  Aberdeen road repaired tp Langley  and the Patterson road north to'the  B.C.E. Railway.  Messrs. Rutlil'fe and a number  ol* others begged that road metal for  the Matsqui village district be obtained from the municipal bunkers:  in   future, ,a.nd   not  from   the   creek  Councillor Benson stated that as  it would take between two and three  hundred dollars to repair,tlie way  to bunkers he was trying gravel cf  easier access. If this proves unsuitable he will go back to the bunkers.  . Private petition from Mr.- Lowe  requested that his ,road .be reduced  a' litle more from the perpendicular,  and from Mr. D. G. Nicholls regarding road ditches. Councillor Gledhlll  invited the' Reeve and Council to go  along with him after the meeting  and advise on this road drainage,  as to comply with the petitioer's  roquest meant ditching through private property.  Glen Valley sent in its petitioners  in person. Led by Led by Messrs.  Sheldrake and Heans, the sore need  for roads in this inaccessible district  was presented to the Council by the  landowners.  This portion of the Fraser bank  is a low bench of excellent soil that  can onlv be reached through a "cranberry marsh" or "muskeg" or "bog."  The Mathers road will be expensive  building,' and if a thousand a year  is spent on it seven or eight years  must elapse before it is completed,  say the petitioners, Meanwhile a skid  road now riming through private  property would give temporary relief.  The Council will not spend any  money on private property, but, as  the men suggested that a lease  might l)e obtained for the use of the  road Councillor Keay made a sporting 'promise. They wanted to work  on this outlet at once, they might do  this, and undertake' to obtain a ton  vear lease of this right-of-way. If  they obtain the leas.c the Council will  pay for the work done. The men 'accepted the offer. Other work is required on the roads down there, so  the Council arranged a special meeting there on Friday next���������if they  can   got   down.  The B.C.IS. Railway promised consideration of the Council's request  to ��������� i:l-2iir the ditch on the Clayburn  road, but responsibility for clear-  ingout the ditch on the Fore road  is denied  by the G.  P.  R.  The solicitors Tor Mrs. Stewart  have claim-id from the .Council damages amounting to $32. Last October a truck that'"was removing Mrs.  Stewart's furniture broke into the  Kelly Creek bridge. The truck was  not damaged but was delayed eight  hours, and the bill is for excess time  charged for the truck. The clerk was  instructed to get further particulars.  Councillor Bell's, bylaw, for. the  collection of a $5 poll tax was declared legal and in order by 'the  solicitors, and went through its initiation. This will be the minimum tax  in the municipality. Taxpayers liable  for less will pay the difference, anu  those  rated higher will   be  exempt.  Councillor K'2<ay gave notice of a  bylaw for tho licensing of two recent, dealers, following the lines of  the regulations in Surrey anl Langley, where the license fee is $200  per annum, and restrictions are placed on hours and minors.  In a forward to an attractive lit.���������  tlcpamphlet issued by the" Railway Y  M. C. A. of Canada, Mr. E. W. Beatty  President of the C.' P. R. pays, a tribute to tlie work of this association.  "Tlie hiKh value-of the work,"  says Mr. Beatty, "of this Young Men's  Christian Association in the interests  of men and boys has come to be  generally and properly recognized**:  particularly on account of its efforts  and accomplishments oil behalf of  our soldiers during the recent world  war.  "Among the various spheres o,f  the Association's activities not the  least Is the . work of tho Railway  Branches which minister to the in-  tclluctual, the social, the .moral and  the physical needs of the railway  men irrespective of race.or creed.  "The inception of this work on the  Canadian Pacific Railway date's back  t 1906 when tht building at Revel-  stoke, B. C, was erected, and so well  satisfied were the company',s offtV  cers with the experiment tried there  that nine additional bandies of the  association have been established.  These provide home surroundings  and comforts for men in train -service when away from home and fto  many employees located at outlying  points they afford the only home  facilities that are available) to them.  "It is not only that good meals  and clean beds are provided but the  educational advantages ,wthe ideational facilities and" the opportunities for  social intercourse amidst wholesome  surroundings tend to make thess'  branchos-so popular."  NEW  PASTOR ARRIVES  Rev. Gordon tanner, the new  Methodist pastor, arrived in Mission  Thursday evening last, having travelled by motor from Grand Forks via  Oroville, Wenatchie, the Blewett and  Snoqualmie Passes, Everett and Bellingham. Mr. Tanner was accompanied by Mrs. Tanner on the trip,  which occupied eight days. "Shortage  of gas hindered rapid travel, one  dollar per gallon was asked at one  place and distillate and coal oil plus  either were in much' demand.  Mr. Tanner reports the season in  the Kootenay as being late, "cool and  showery." The roads through Northern Washington are "nothing to  write home about," but from Wen-  atchee and onwards they are a motorists   dream.

Formerly aged nve.ii,' irrespective of their  earnings were exempt.  ���������   In former year's any person having  ��������� pa id to the finance department more  than $5 for any licence fee did noi  have to pay poll tax, butrthis has  been changed, and the only 'exemption is for those who have paid property tax or purchased- a' free miners'  license. The payment of. municipal taxes for'last year gives exemption  In   former   collections   persons   who  .owned automobiles .secured exemption hv.tn ot so this year. No returned soldiers were called upon to pay'  poll tox in Ml!), but only those who  are aiul have been for the past six  months on the militia enolline.nt, or.  who were returned to British Columbia physically unfit, are exempt from  payment this year.  Ex!-a efforts' are being, made to  collect the poll tax from Orientals,  notices of the penalties for failure to  pay Die tax have been printed in  Japanese a.nd Chinese, and these are  being circulated among the Oriental  colonies throughout the province.  Considerable confusion has arisen  by reason of the exemption given to  thosew'hoh aAre paid more than $5 in  provincial income taxes. It was argued by some that /the payment ot  Dominion, government income taxes  should-be-ar'the same effect, but on  this point a ruling was asked for and  it was held by the department of finance that Dominion taxes did not  affect the payment of the'poll tax.  ''  other  which  ALOOHOLTC FOOD  air is as g.ivat as that required to  move a stream line airplane strut  several  Limes  its diameter.  The. influence    of  the    streamline  was  not  formerly     understood     and  seldom-' taken  account of in  the  design of the struto, fuselage and landing ge ars of the airplanes. Scic*! title  research  and   wind  tunnel   Irsts  and  tlie   introduction   of   smoke   through  j tho   wind   tunnel   have   revealed   tho  ' necessity of   cutting   down   head   re-  [ sistance,    thus    decreasing : what is  'known  as drag  or  drift.  The cal'ual  course of the air introducr.d into theii  I wind tunnel and its consequent effect  I upon  the wing can  actually bo seen  i by the eye through  the introduction  1 of   smoke   through   the   wind   tunnel  and of course, accurate compulations  and  decisions can  be easily made in  connection  therewith. It  idicated  the necssity of changing the surface  the cross section of the .wing panels  the .section of the struts ant:  exposed surfaces to forms  would  offer less resistance.  It is very easy to push a thing  into the air/rbut it is hard to get. it  out without' creating a disturbance.  If we .take a broom handle for instance and sweep it''through the air  rapidly v.-a find if we would examine  the air'immediately following it, that  a vacuum is croated just behind the  stick-itself, and thus causes an eddying directly behind it, creating a V-  shaped partial vacuum, which decidedly increases the total power required to move the .stick through'the atmosphere. It was easily found by-  wind tunnel tests that by fillm-*: up  tliis vacuum and changing -.lightly  i the entering surface the stick con!'.'  be passed through the air much iuor?  easily and a��������� considerably-sina'���������������������������.������������������ a-  mount of power would be ro-'iuirccl  to move it. Any person can observe  these facts on any airplane, ar iirac';-?-  ally any aviation field. Notice the way  the struts ares treamlined, the shap3  of the fuselage and even landing  gears how they are streamlined. To  cut down wind resistance on some oi  the types of planes being turned out  by the manufacturers even the flying  and landing wires are stream-lined.  Even sucli small details as these are  taken into account, wliich incidentally adds materially to the speed of the  airplane.  s'J>" ���������'������������������: ���������'i-'t.s.

The clean cultivation mot hod calls  for all the ground under and around  the tiroes to be ploughed and frequently harrowed until around July  first.'  This system has much to .recommend it, viz: (.1) maximum, conservation of soil moisture, (2) excellent  conditions for, liberation of plant  food especially nitrogen, (3) sightliness and cleanliness of the orchard  and (4) control of insect pests.  In connection with this, either fall  or" spring ploughing may be practised  the former however only in those localities witli a favourable enough win  ter' to so permit. The great secret  -of success with any system of cultivation.' designed to conserve moisture  and liberate plant food is to get on  the land as early as possible in the  spring, otherwise,- If the orchard is  not ploughed until late, most of the  advantages of cultivation are lost.  Modifications of the above consist  of leaving a strip of sod about four  feet in width next to the trees. In  old orchards where it is difficult to  get close to the trees this may be  practised successfully, in which case  the'grass is cut once or twice during  the season and allowed' to remain as  a mulch.  In both of these instances, on the  cultivated portion a mulch, is maintained until about July first, when a  cover crop of some sort should be  sowed. If the seed is not too expensive, some leguminous crop like  red clover or crimson clover at the  rate of 12 pounds to the acre for the  former and 10 pounds for the latter  or summer vetch at the rate of f.0  pounds per acre is advisable, as  these, will add a considerable quantity of plant food to the soil.  If too costly, rape may. be used as  1 cover crop, at (lie rate of .'"'J puu'ids  per acre.
