The minutos of the meeting which  was hold on- May IGth wore amended by striking out the words "and  the new account will be carried over"  on Folio "IH. The minutes were a-  dopted as then amended.  Communications received  From T. P. Neolands, suggesting  the desirability of having the road  running north and south past the N.  W. 1-4 of Sec. 29, Tp. 16 made passable for vehicles, also having the  work which was started last year on  the road running east and west completed. He contended that the small  amount of improvements spent on  the roads contiguous to his property  was out of proportion to the large a-  mount of taxes which he paid yearly  and that this was manifestly unfair  and directly contrary to the spirit of  taxation. The clerk was instructed  to reply .that the road in use in-the  immediate .vicinity was not built altogether on the line and that a further expenditure of money on the  road as so located was not good pol-'  icy. Extensive logging operations  are- being carried on on the adjoining lands,- and when they are comr  plete the matter of the proper location of the road ,and; its condition  will be considered in ��������� conjunction  -with-the traffic'thereon'.-    ,. .-,-��������� .-_.^^  . .

L. 356 adjoining this 'quarter section on the east. To do so it would  be impossible to fell the timber without obstructing the road which runs  through this timber in the direction  of Clayburn and they asked the con-  sent of the council to close thiej  road for a few days while they would'  be so engaged. ���������'-  McCallum-EJlioit, the the request  of the Abbotsford Timber arid Trading Company, Limited re the cloning  of the road for a short time for the  purpose of felling the timber on the  .maintain two roads so closely parallelling each other. He contended that  this road   was superior to   the   road  which  went over the hill;   also'that  he was unable 'to gain access to thrj  later   road   bocauso     of   the     debris  which he claimed had been deposited  on  his land  when  an  appropriation  of   $200.00   had   been' expended     at  the  junction  of  this  road  with* the  Aberdeen road.     He gave notice that  if fiction was not taken at the meeting  he would  be compelled to- seek  legal advice-and have the debris removed-and tho road opened up. The  couhcil decided to view the premises  as a body on  Friday June   11th, ct  11  o'clock, assembling at the Pear-  donville school house and at the same  time to examine into the advisability or otherwise of making a capital  expenditure in the    Boundary    road  from   the.

Melander-McCallum' that- whereas  are you going to ship  HASPS IN CARLOAD LOTS?  Thefollo.wing letter addressed to  Mr. E. Osborne, the energetic secretary of the Fraser 'Valley Growers  will" be of-interest to the raspberry  growers of the district.  It would appear that it is the best  scheme to ship'in carload lots in order, to keep "the markets clear and:the  prices up. The glutting of the market certainly puts the fruit prices a-  way down, and the shipping in carload lots appears to be the only system of regulating the markets.  Good prices and quick returns are  what the growers are after and the  MISSION MUNICIPALITY  WINS   AGAINST   C.  P.   R.  C. P. R. Made Appeal In- Asssessment  Of Mission Municipality on the  Half of O. P. R. Bridge  The "C. P. R. appealed against the  Mission Municipality -assessing , the  half of the C; P. R. bridge, claiming  that either all or none could be assessed. The case came up on Monday last, with the result that'the ,C. ���������  P. R. lost .their case.'    '������������������ '    .  The boundary of the Mission Muni'  cipality extends half way into the  Fraser.

Last' year the shipping  in' carlots was a great success in  many, ways, and seeing that it was the  first year should be very .encouraging  to all���������even those who do not belong  to the Growers association. Outsiders or non-members have the privilege of shipping in the cars,' and the  small amount that is paid for this  privilege should not deter any person  with, good fruit. ' ' '  Everybody .get busy for the first  car of berries which t should go out  either  Monday  or Tuesday.  "I expected to have heard from  you' before this as to what you expect to do with regard to raspberries in carlots this season. Raspberries in less than carlots have already  started shipping, and I should like to  be in-possession of some'definite information as to the prospects "in, order  to do-something-to prepare the -way  for the best'price procurable this  season.

W. 1-4 of S. 1, T. 14,  so as to connect the Coghlan road  with the Matsqui-Mt. Lehman road  Mr. D. B. McDonald addressed the  'council, in support of the petition,  stating that this road was easy y ol  construction and would prove a better outlet for'the residents adjacent  to the Coghlan road than the road  which leads to the Mt. Lehman road  The reeve stated that while he did  not assume any legal responsibility  for the opening up of this road by,  reason of the existence of his subdivision; he did consider that he was  morally responsible because the owners of other subdivisions are now  called upon by the council to.open  the subdivision roads. H'e further.  stated that he had, made financial arrangements Avith one of the purchasers of a block in his subdivision to  do the necessary work. '  From S Campbell complaining that  he -felt an injustice .was being perpetrated against himself and neighboring residents inasmuch as the  road which they most frequently us-  ed__:the Boundary Commission Trail  opened by the Federal Government���������  has been blocked by a large cedar  tree for considerable time in spite of  the fact that attention had been called to this obstruction. The reason  given for this non-removal was that  the council did not feel inclined to  they were only able to collect from  the council at the rate of $1 per day  whereas the actual cost of maintenance of an idividual patient in the  hospital is little short of $2 per day.  'From A. Frey re the proposed sub  division of the fraction S. E. 1-4 of  S. 15,. T. 13. Mr. Frey. who was  present, was given assurance that the  council would not insist that the  half road allowance would be required on that portion of the eastern  boundary north of the diversion of  the road from the Section line." On  this understanding he stated,that he  would proceed with his subdivision  At the request of the council he signed a statement to the effect that the  $95' which" he had received some  years ago from he council was in  payment of improvements taken and  for fencing.

Its immediate effect would  be to bring in upon the Alberta  market some live to ten cars of Puy-  ailup raspberries, which the consuming public would have to absorb in  ach.'iiion to all of our own stock, and  would certainly result in disaster.  "Bear in mind that, if it had not  been for underloading and'the arrival of cars in bad condition last year,  both of these conditions that one  might reasonably hope to avoid after  a year's experience your berries in  spite of' all other handicaps, would  have .returned that very figure that I  mentioned to you as possible in.my  first letter to you on the subject.  "If we can possibly keep your own  berries from slaughtering the Cal-.  gary market, we should be able to  maintain very close to the $1.90  mark for you at point of shipment,  "Please write me fully arid tell me  what we may expect.  "I suppose you have heard that the  Gordon Head strawberry growers are  shipping to the prairie in carlots, and  have been getting excellent prices, a  net F. O. B. of $1.90 to $2.22. And  of course, they are doing this under  the same handicap of high minimum  that you are laboring under. Take  my word for it, the carlot business  will win out in spile of handicaps.  "Another point worth considering  is this. I have lately had a long talk  with Mr. Stockton of the Nash organization, and I think that I have  convinced him that the only way to  hold you people is to give you something really good in the way of prices.,I feel satisfied that, especially  with me at their elbow during the  time your stuff is moving, you will  get every cent that is coming to you  Yours very truly, J.

FORMER RESIDENT LAYS DOWN  LIFE  AT  THE  BATTLEFRONT  (From Fraser Valley Record)  Mr. D. Lamont, one of the successful growers of Cedar Valley, says he  shipped strawberries on May 11th to  Calgary and received $6.25 a crate  for the shipment. This is easily the  best price we have heard received for  strawberries from this district, and  there have been some handsome prices paid in the past for first-class  fruit.  He shipped  his first  raspeberries  on June  4th.  The box factory is running daily  at the Canyon City Lumber company  mill. ,  Penticton has a total  assessment  of over $4,000,000.      It is a city.  Sergt. A. Fermor of the 7th battalion of the 104th writes: "I very  much regret writing" to tell you of  poor old "Fergy's" death (W. X  Ferguson). You will probably see a  report of it before this reaches you  but I felt I must write to one ,or  two of his old friends. [  I- was not present when the poor  old chap met his death but they all  tell me he died-like a good fellow  he always was. In fact it was a  hero's death for he went out into  the open to help a wounded comrade"  Mr. Ferguson will be remembered as a bar tender at the old Commercial Hotel and later at the Abbotsford. He was one of the first  to volunteer for the front when the  war broke out, and was one of the  happiest'of the happy bunch of boys  who passed through Mission City and  wished to be remembered to all in  Abbotsford. "Fergy" was one. of  nature's young noblemen. He died  fighting for his country, a willing volunteer.  The W. C. T.-.'U. meeting on Tuesday last at the home of Mrs. J F  Boyd was a most succesfui one. Reports of delegates from provincial  convention were given by Mrs. F. J.  Tapp of Huntingdon and Mrs. Ham  of Clayburn.; Mrs. Trethewey also  brought back to the local union much  encouragement for the work of the  future in the outlined plans of the  convention. Mrs. Boyd with her usual hospitality entertained all present  to tea on the lawn. The next meeting of the union will be held in the  Presbyterian church on Tuesday, July 6th, when it is hoped a full attendance of members will be present.

Loveday, Dominion  Fruit Inspector for Vancouver will  at this time of the year prove interesting reading especially as ��������� Mr.  'Loveday is well known to many of  .our readers, and some value his opinion very highly.  The paper reads:  The question of packing fruit is  one of great importance to the grower, if he grows No. 1 fruit he must  ���������use a No. ' pack. ' This is demonstrated every day on Water' Street  where you see fruit from local growers being "jobbed off" at a heavy  ���������discount because-of the inferior? pack  ,though the quality of the goods is  " excellent. -" -.   ���������  There are three reasons why first  grade fruit should be properly pack-  tile 4-basket crate for Italian prunes  the market is full of the fruit packed in peach boxes, a cheaper package  When ordering peach boxes for use  for prunes order 4" ends with 4"  sides otherwise you may get 3-1-2"  sides, as used for peaches, and have  considerable leakage and damage  done to the fr.uit at the edges of the  boxes, When buying 4-basket crates  avoid getting baskets with too much  bevel to them they are hard to pack.  The right time to pick1 fruit  should be studied by the grower, it  is sheer waste to pick either too early or too late; the following rules,  if observed, will lessen the shrinkage  Cherries should be picked with the  stein on, no blemished fruit should  be put into the picking buckets, and  orchard boxes not filled too full.  Plums and. Prunes should have  the stems intact and be carefully  handled so as to retain bloom, they  should   be   hard   ripe   but   matured  Never allow boxes filled with fruit  to  stand   in  the  sun.  Fruit that is rained on while in  the ripening stages has its keeping  qualities impah-ed.  Cherries, Plums and Prunes will  ripen quickly and start to decay  quickly if packed after being rained  on.  An hoest pack and giving "full  ^measure and running over" is the  best weapon to meet the competition  of outsiders in our markets, and un  we can give that we have no-right  to expect the support of the con  suming   public.

W. J. Roche,  Minisier of the Interior, had in view  in establishing a Forest Products Laboratory of Canada under the Dominion Forestry Branch.,The plan is that  expert chemists and technical men  devote their whole time to discovering new uses for Canadian woods  and better methods for applying  woods to their old uses, so that our  citizens may. secure the greatest efficiency and profit in handling this  great natural' resource. One "of the  i'ruits of this plan is the bulletin  just issued by the Forestry Branch  on "Treated Wood Block Paving"  The question of wooden paving is a  most important one to Canada which  has such great supplies of this material. The bulletin tells of the results obtained in European, United  States and Canadian municipalities  in using wood for paving and gives  the methods by which the best results  have been obtained. Any resident of  Canada interested may have a copy of  this bulletin free by writing to the  Director of Forestry, Department of  the Interior, Ottawa.  --  NEW WESTMINSTER MARKET  Spring fruits of alrriost every  variety featured the displays on the  city market'on Friday last and with  few'exceptions the prices asked wore  paid by the purchasing housewives  without demur. Strawberries were  scarce. There were few in sight., although the demand was somewhat  brisk for crate lots. Ten cents a  bpx was the price asked. Cherries,  ,red currants, black currants and  gooseberries were much in evidence  There was a good demand for goose  berries,' but little call for the currants ( which were quoted at 15 tf a  pound.  Butter for the first time in many  weeks, dropped from the standard  of 40-J to 35������ and although some  persistent vendors held out for the  higher figure they sold at rare intervals. Three pounds for a dollar  was also quoted by some. Eggs  lluctuated from 25^ to &0������ retail,  and hovered around 23^ wholesale.  There were fewer, eggs in evidence  than usual a&d wholesale dealers fail  ed to secure their usual quantities.    r"  The chicken section was once again  the busiest-corner of the market. If  anything there wero more birds offered than usual and despite the big  drain from Fraser Valley centres of  the past few months the supply seems  unimpaired. Thirteen and fourteen  cents per' pound for hens, 10^ for  roosters and 18<������ to 2 0tf for broilers  according to size, were the prevailing  prices.  Small pigs, generally shown in  small quantities, flooded the market  and trading was quite brisk in the  young porkers, which sold all the  way from $1.50 to $3.00 each.  The meat section showed the usual lines, with a larger supply of  beef than usual. Pork took a drop  of half a cent and mutton which was  scarcer than usual, dropped one cent  on the pound.  Cherries were offered by almost  all of the regular vendors and the  price ranged from 5 to 10������ per lb  although the demand for fruit- was  slight. Ten pound boxes went begging at 50tf, the quality of the fruiit  having been somewhat impaired by  recent rains.  The following prices were quoted:  Poultry  Ducks, old, live weight ..13^ to 15^  Ducks, young, live weight 17<f to 20<J  Chickens  /. 13# to 15<J  Fruit  Strawberries, per box  10������  Cherries per lb 5<f to 10^  Gooseberries per lb  10(J  Red Currants, per lb  10<f  Black Currants-, per lb  15<f  Rhubarb,  per  lb   : 2 Ms'4  Vegetables  Potatoes, per'-'ton-' $14 to $16  Potatoes, per sack' 85������  Celery, per bunch  j 10<J  Lettuce,  3  bunches  5$  Radishes, 3 bunches  5������  Bunch Cabbage  5cJ  Leeks,  3   bunches  .--. 5������  Spinach,   per   lb'  , 4#'  New Beets, per bunch  5<l  Cucumbers   ..10^  Turnips,  white 2  bunches  5<f  Eggs nad Butter  Eggs,  retail   25<*  to  30<t  Eggs,   wholesale 23tf   to   24<*  Butter, retail, per lb .... 35tf to 37tf  Butter, wholesale, per lb  30^  Wholesale Meat ���������  Beef,  hindquarters  14%tf  to   15%tf  Beef, fore quarters  10<i  to  lltf  Pork, per lb  11<* to 11%<*  Veal, No.-l, per lb  14tf to 15tf  Veal,  large, per  lb  12<J  to  13������  Mutton   15tf to 170  Spring   Lamb    : 180  Young Pigs, each  $2 to $3  Fish  Sockeye salmon, per lb  12 %0  Spring  Salmon,   3   lbs    250  Herring,   3   lbs    250  Steelhead,   per  i. ; 150  Smelts,   per   lb    100  Whiting, per lb  100  Halibut,  per lb   150  Codfish,  per lb    12^0  Sturgeon,   per   lb    150  Crabs,  2   for  250  mmmv  ���������jejbobbqeiqgo  J.

All  really fine stock selling readily while  some off color and little dirty, have  been hard ..to movie. People want  berries for'-canning which will hold  the market steady. What few raspberries were in sold freely. Monday's arrivals were heavy in Calgary  unfortunately very few going to. Edmonton or Medicine Hat. and Calgary  getting 82  rasps to Edmonton  3.  . This is more than Calgary trade  would take at $3.00 on.Monday, necessitating carrying over quite a lot  till Tuesday. Had 30 of them, been  sent to Edmonton and 15 to Medicine  Hat the entire lot would have been  retailed to the public on Monday,  leaving all markets hungry on Wednesday.  Shipments made on the night train  are, on the Calgary, Edmonton, Medicine Hat markets exactly the same  time and even if. the express is a  trifle more to those places the divid:  ing them up will hold all markets  steady and higher longer. Then  there are so many small points shipping Calgary that'it is difficult to get  good distribution unless through the  heavy shipping points of Mission and  Hatzic.
