CliAYIiUKiY  .LOSMS AT    '  HANDS  OF  LADNER  Clayburn ' Baseball team' played  the ^acinar team at Ladner last Saturday and were beaten with a score  of 12-0.  Clayburn boys were not at their  best, as some of their most reliable  players were not able to get away  from work to attend the'game. However, the game may not be so, o" j-  sided when Ladner plays the return  game at Ciayburn on Saturday,. June  IGth, when it is expected that a real  good game of baseball will be played. This Saturday Murrayville and  Clayburn are the contesting teams.  BOOST THE  RAND  T5Y  A DONATION  MRS. T. LEHMAN POUND  DEAD  ON ������ ROAD  The sad news was received here  on Thursday of the sudden death in  Mt. Lehman of Mrs. Thomas Lehman, who passed away Thursday  morning.

IMPROMPTU SPEECHES  ENJOYED AT MEN'S CTjUB  A very successful evening was  spent at the Men's Club on-Tuesday.  A debate was to have been held but  on account of two. of the debaters being absent, it was decided to spend  the evening in the making of stump  speeches. Twelve subjects were  placed in a hat, and as each member  drew a slip of paper, he gave a two  minute speech on the subject drawn.  The idea proved very entertaining:  and  was well enjoyed.  BOARD   OF   TRADIO   MEMRERS  VISIT SUMAS DYKING SCHEME  Representations from among the  entire district along-the border line  joined with members of the Abbotsford and district Board of Trade in  visting the Sumas' dyke on Thursday af'ternoon. The party were-met  by the engineer in charge, Mr. Sinclair, who showed them over the  intricate parts of the dam.  A very profitable and .pleasant afternoon was spent, the party leaving  at 1:30 p. m. and returning at 5 p.  m.  Miss Eleanor Peck of Abbotsford  gave a demonstration on the making  of silk flowers' at the regular meeting of the Clearbrook Road Women's  Institute, held on Thursday afternoon.  Much general business was transacted and a social hour enjoyed.  Mrs. and Miss' Dodds of Victoria  are the guests of their uncle, Mr.  John Duncan.  Mr. Chas.

Members of the Abbotsford band  journeyed to Mission on Thursday  evening to a'ttend' the official opening of the Mission band stand.  A subscription list is in circulation in Abbotsford in aid of our  home band, and' thanks to the generous dispositions of our citizens, is  meeting with fairly good resuUs.  The band has worked very faithfully to acheve the success' it now  enjoys, and when sufficient funds  have been secured some new instruments and music will be purchased  A band stand will also be built, so as  outdoor concerts can conveniently  be  held.  It is also the intenton of the band  to enter the competition of B. C  bands to be held at the Provincial  Fair this fall.  Considering the difficulties the  leader, and the players have worked  under, our local band has done exceedingly well and is a great credit  to the town, and worthy of strong  s'upport. .'

During the meeting Mrs. Court-  man gave a very instructive'paper on  "Baby Welfare." This is the last  meeting to be held until ;next- September.  APPOINT  DELEGATES    .  TO MONSTER PTCNIC  FORE ROAD  EXTENSION  consultation  "the, road  straight with  Matsqui    Will     Continue     Highway  East AVitliout   Jog'���������Stakes  to be Placed  MATSQUI, June 5.���������The extension of Fore road east through '' tho  Matsqui Land Co.'s property anc] beyond has' been the cause of dispute  because the road was not in the  center of the section line.  The municipal solictors, the land  registrar and municipal surveyor in  gave judgment that  should be continued  uniform width as the  road to the west of which it is' a  continuation." This would eliminai.e  the jog, and although the further ex  tension is not now required the  council decided to establish the  road according to this arrangement,  to save future trouble, and the engineer would be ordered to stake it  out accordingly.'  Chief Constable T. H. Lehman is  invested with authority as' a Fire  Protection Officer by District  ester Andrews.  An extra general meeting of  council will be held    at    the  cultural Hall, Gifford, on June 16.  The regular monthly meeting    of  Abbotsford and    District .-Board    of  Trade was' held' in the Bank of Montreal  Chambers on Monday evening.  In the absence of the.' president, the  wlec-p resident-, --Mr.- H. Be'efc, -presided. ' " ���������     '���������"  An  invitation  was received    from  the Mission City Board of Trade for  any two delegates of the local board  to attend the picnic to be held at Ni-  j comen  Island on June 14th to cele-  j.'brate tlie completion of the first unit  of the dyke.  It is expected that Hon. Dr. Sutherland, Hon. E. D. Barrow, D. Whiteside, Mayor Tisdall ancl J. A. Catherwood will be among the prominent  men who will attend this picnic.  The president, Mr. F. J. R. Whitchelo, ancl the secretary, Mr. N. Hill,  were authorized to attend this picnic,  ancl if for any reason they arc unable, to be present, substitutes will  be sent.  The oiling of the streets of the  town was again under discussion and  the oil will be duly applied to the  streets: in the near future.  The attendance at the Board meeting was not large as should be,  considering that the Board is the  only Eiuthorative organization' which  endeavors to promote the best interests of the town and surrounding  communities, and is worthy of the'  united support of all citizens.  C. X. R. CROSSINGS  NKEI) IMPROVEMENT  For  th G  Agri-  Mr. and Mrs. Hall, who came to  Abbotsford recently to reside, are rejoicing over the arrival of a little  son,  born on Thursday morning.  Matsqui, June 4.���������Canadian National Railway crossings in Matsqui  are not meeting modern traffic conditions according to requests bo fore  the council on Saturday. Where  they sire steep, autos must get up  great speed to negotiate them, and  there is danger from their narrowness and from the liability of collision with cars coming in the opposite direction. Attention was  drawn particularly to Little's crossing and that on the Bealon road  which are too steep for threshing  machines'to get over.  The Bell road crossing has a fair  approach, but is too narrow, being  only fifteen feet wide at the tracks.  Twenty feet is the legal width, but  the council is of the opinion that all  these crossings should be made  twenty-five feet wide,- with easy approaches'.  The request of T. C. Haley of  Clayburn for the closing of a portion of the Sharpe road will be considered by the next council meeting  when Councillor Mutch has inspected the road.  FRASER   VALLEY WILL  HAVE  BASEBALL  LEAGUE  The forming of' a Fraser ' Valley  Baseball Association is under way.

The Women's Missionary Society  convened-during the . first part of  the meeting,vand ' then 'the Ladies''  Aid met. Both ��������� gatherings were  very ably addressed by Miss Sproule  of Vancouver, W. C. C. U. Missionary for B. C.  The resignation of . Mrs. E.

First there was to have been a  mid-summer; but it does not yet look  as though there would bo one this  month or next month. If it is steer-  , ed past August into September, it is  likely there will be another short  session before an election is held in  the province. While it may have  been the idea of the government at'  one time this year to ' hurry on an  election, the fact that Premier Oliver  was unable to cover tho ground,  would put all idea of a midsummer  election aside. He has not yet completed his tour of the province so has  not all the political information at  hand that he 'desires before going to  the country, after his distribution is  passed.  ���������Spring is here, and with it has  come that delicious lassitude we  call "spring fever." In an earlier day  the housewife or granny went forth  in search of "yarbs" with which she  made a strong decoction. Perhaps,  instead of this bitter mess, everyone  from Johnny to the hired man was  dosed profusely with sulphur and  molasses. It was a time for house-  cleaning and body-cleaning. Today in  the cities the pharmacies' begin .then-  displays of spring tonics. ��������� But pep  is not to.be found in bottles. Granny  was right���������one must go to the woods  to find a cure for spring fever. One  searches', among the trees and in the  fields;' one wanders along the bank  of some stream; one looks among  the grass and ferns for the first  signs' of spring flowers; one gazes  upward toward the sun. And strangely as the search continued long before the ingredients are found, the  cure- for spring fever develops. When  the stroll is completed the medicine  has worked. The cure for spring  fever is "spring," > taken in liberal  doses. It worked in early summer  too.  TM   I II    ^fcX^���������fcn        ������������������!���������������������������������  A number of auto owners in the  Fraser Valley have in times gone  past become members of. one of the  E. C. City organizations, with- the  hope of interesting the city auto  owners in the country, to which  place the city people all hike on a  ' 'holiday,-but during the past .very  little interest has been taken in the  welfare of the district surrounding  Vancouver and Westminster that  has been created by the auto clubs  of those two places'.  This spring an organization known  as the 13. C.  Automobile    Club was  incorporated    with'   the    object    of  forming into  one      organization  all  the owners of cars in    the province,  ,     and already some    good    work    has  been  done by this association. Four.  or five branches' have been organized  in the Fraser' Valley where the club  ��������� is becoming quite    popular.    It      is  understood that an effort was made  to bring into this new    organization  the city clubs, but so far with very  little success.    But the clubs of Vancouver, New.Westminster and Victoria it is understood have    united 'for  the purpose of forming a    province-  ���������wide   organization,   in   opposition   to  the B.; C.    Country auto owners are  asking  what   the  cause  of' it is.   as  it would appear not possible to have  two provincial clubs in this province.  This sure needs some explanation. If  there are two organizations there is  bound   to be.    considerable   friction.  In unity there is strength    but then  again Ave are told that a house divid-'  ed  against itself  shall  fall.  The aim and object of any auto  club is to work in the interests of  better roads and better conditions  for owners of cars. One big organization in,the province is more apt to  get this than if there is a multiplicity of clubs.  (Have a get-to-gether.meeting, and  settle any .disputes , before further  organization is gone ahead wltk.  Make It Nineteen ."Plenty-Three"  year for all of us.

During Empire Day no less than  53 calls were made on the Service-  car of the 13. C. Automobile Association for assistance by motorists,,  mostly non-members. , Several were  stranded short of gasoline. In every  case the automobile was sent on its  way with but very little delay.  The country is on the long pull towards prosperity, in spite of the fact  that so much of the world is "upside down." This year looks '.ike a  prosperous year for the farmers', as  well as for the business world, it is  hoped. Employment in general is  better now than it has been since the  close o" the. war. The industries are  working overtime. Construction is  booming. Transportation facilities  are improving. The railroads are  buying new cars, new locomotives  and making many repairs. Prices are  steadily advancing in all lines and  there is an unusually large demand  for farm products, in many parts of  the country. It is hoped that, the  farmer will get more cash for his  crop, this year than he did last year.  We have all been signally blessed.  Three months, or a fourth of 1923,  have passed. Conditions are much  better than they were in January.  Many of the most influential and  keenest business men predict 1923  will  eventually   prove  a  prosperous  Prairie Provinces and    seeding    has  been     practically ' completed    under  good weather conditions. The general outlook is favourable.    In Quebec  plowing has not yet been completed,  but despite Ihe backward Spring, the  crops sown are in 'healthy condition.  In Ontario rain has retarded seeding,  The season,is fully two    weeks late,  but vegetation is recovering from the  setback.    \n the Maritime Provinces  conditions are still  unfavourable and  little seeding has 'been  done.    Fruit  trees have wintered well.  In  British  Columbia prospects are good for all  crops, except    potatoes    ancl    small  fruits.    Details are as follows:  Prairie  Provinces.

Fall  rye promising crop and to the south  now in short blade.  Province   of Quebec  Plowing has not been completed in  some districts'owing to the .wetness  of the lowlands. Seeding is being  done as rapidly as possible and crops  that are in, though backward, are in  a healthy condition. With warm  weather growth should be rapid.  Meadows and pasturage are showing  up well.  Province'of Ontario  Abundance of rain throughout the  Province has retarded seeding somewhat. Late frosts in some sections,  but no serious damage has been done.  Wheat gives good promise with fair  acreage. Hay promises to be an average crop. With clover a good crop  abundance of pasturage is anticipated. Growth of late has been rapid  and vegetation is recovering the  setback caused by the cold Spring.  Conditions generally are satisfactory.  Maritime Provinces  Season two or three weeks late  and conditions still unfavourable.

Eaen acre of corn grown in Ohio  costs on an average 46.26 hours of  labor. r.  Canada is now second on the list  as an exporting land, the per capita  being $100.63 per annum.  A new station is being built by'  the Canadian Pacific Railway at  Fredericton at a cost of $50,000.  I-Ialf a million Canadians look to  the forests each day for their meals  and lodging, and .more,'than; 100,000  Canadian workmen are engaged in  converting forest products into one  form or another.  The large party of Hebridean3  who were brought to Canada on the  Canadian Pacific Steamships "Meta-  gama" and "Marloch" have gone to  Red Deer, Alta., where they will  form  an  agricultural colony.  C   Seven hundred farmers and farm  laborers arrived in Canada recently  on   the    Canadian ' Pacific    steamer  "Montcalm."    These    colonists    are  proceeding  to   Ontario   and  western  points where they will take up farm  work.    (  The project of a ship canal across  Scotland from the Clyde to the  Fifth of Forth was brought to the  fore again at a recent meeting of  the Mid-Scotland Ship Canal Association, and there is a possibility  of something b_eing started in this  connection in the near future.  A single pair of potato bug3  would, without check, increase to  60,000,000 in one season; the hop  aphis, developing thirteen generations in a single year would, if unchecked to the end of the twelfth  generation, have multiplied to ten  sextillions.  SHIPPING 11ACON TN RALES  The difference between the manner in which Danes and Canadians  ship bacon to "the British market  is that the Danes ship the sides in  bales,' whereas the usual Canadian  custom is to be packed in boxes.  Some of the Canadian packing  houses, however, have adopted the  bale method and are finding it satisfactory. A bale contains four sides  wrapped in cheesecloth and covered  with sacking. The Peterboro packing house has adopted this method,  shipping about twenty per cent of  its' bacon in bales. Only such sides  as will make leanest Wiltshires and  are as nearly as possible identical  with the Danish sides of the first  grade,  are  chosen.  The percentage corresponds very  closely with  the  percentage  of "se-  Canadian air pilots flew 294,449  miles carrying 9,153 passengers and  77,850 -pounds of freight in 1922,  according to a report of the Cana-.  dian Air Board. Saskatchewan  pilots led in the Dominion; carrying  3,622 passengers. Manitoba pilots  carried 1,622 people, and British  Columbia  pilots  1,122. (  A company has been formed in  London to exploit sunken treasure in  Navarino Bay, off the west coast  of Greece. The promoters state  that there is a matter of $45,000,000  in, bullion and other1 forms, still at  the'bottom of the Bay, where it was  sunk with the united fleets of Egypt  and Turkey by the united British,  French and "Russian" fleets in 1827.  Last summer 4,000 forest fires  cleared away at least ten times as  many trees as were cut down for  lumber, pulp and paper, and all other industrial purposes. A very large  percentage of the fires were caused  by careless campers and sportsmen  who "thought it would die out" or  cas't away a lighted match or cigarette end.  Improvement of camping facilities  at: Banff for automobile tourists is  now being made. The Mount Run-  die camp site is being improved and  enlarged, and will be equipped with  all modern appliances. It is expected that as a result of the 'opening of the Banff-Windermere road  this year, the- tourist traffic through  Banff will be the heaviest ever recorded.  <  At., the-' annual meeting of the  Canadian Pacific Railway, President E. W. Beatty pointed out that  prospects for the immigration into  Canada of the class of colonist urgently needed to develop the country's natural resources were much  brighter than they had been in the  past two or three years, and an increased traffic from Great Britain  and Northern Europe was indicated  by the largely ir.c^ased western  movement on the company's ships  during the past four months of thi3  year.         _ _^   THE INCREASING VALUE  OF YOUR TELEPHONE  Your telephone is cf   greater .value as   each mouth  goes by.

One  bullet, however, struck him in1 the  groin, and he bled to death. There  is a mark on the club indicating that  the bullet was deflected.  A coroner's inquest \was held, and  the jury-returned a'verdict exonerating Mr. Rerrie. However, the municipal, police laid a charge of murder and accused was brought before  the magistrate.

One  may choose between a crop of many  small blooms or a smaller number of  fine flowers.    Some rarieties require  harder pruning than others,  but ho  rose bush should be allowed to pass  the spring without pruning. Branches that have been damaged    by    ihe  winter weather are no longer of use  .and should be removed..   The small  thin, branches do not produce bloom  arid they should also be    taken out.  If left on the bush they will take up  the nourishment that    should go to  r.iems   producing  roses.   Besides  removing the dead    wood and    the  weak  growths,   the  branches  should  be shortened.    It Is a very good rule,  with bushes that are well established  to take off all wood that is smallei  than a lead pencil.    In young bushes  such hard    pruning is riot desirable.  When removing limbs    they should  be. cut close to the main stem,    that  is,  without leaving stumps.

They  were  made voluntarily  .by the railways at'   the instance    of  ^the Board of Railway Commissioners,  and did not form part of the board's  order, and this may have been    the  reason why they did not obtain such  publicity. This  does not weaken  the  case for the more    extensive use    of  the  Pacific route, ���������   which    is based  upon present, conditions, but it    does  ishow that, while the    eastward rates  were reduced  by the    restoration of  the  Crow's Nest, schedule,  the west-  ' ward route was not entirely neglected.     ,  The case for Pacific transportation stand* upon its own bottom.  There is a very large region of Western Canada which is very little developed, and which would bo best  .served by-railways connecting with  British Columbia ports. As we have  pointed out, the Peace River country to the north and west of Edmonton .contains enough arable land to  produce as. much grain as is now  cently attracted attention, and it is  not surprising that it has dawned  way out by the Pacific, and not by  the long haul to the Atlantic. Th-'j  possible development of Western  Canada along this lino has only recently attracted attenion, and it is  not surprising hat.it has dawned  Somewhat slowly on tho minds of  those who are accustomed to t!,e  movement of grain in this direction  But it is a matter of national importance.���������Toronto  Glob*.  ready to its hands, the statement of  the retiring board declares, and  adds: "The people of the country  have every right to expect from those  rcispomsiMf! for the future" ronrtucl.  of the association- Huch an immigra-  Lii u problem as will be fully in keep-  in;; w.ith flic national requirements.

' One  may choose between a crop of many  small blooms or a smaller number oi'  fine flowers. Some varieties require  harder pruning than others, but no  rose bush should be allowed to pass  the spring without pruning. Branches that have been damaged by the  winter weather are no .longer of use  and should be removed. Tho small  thin branches do not produce bloom  and they should also be taken out.  If left on the bush they will take up  the nourishment that should go to  ��������� Pi ems' producing' roses. Besides  removing the dead wood and tho  weak growths, the branches should  be shortened. It is a very good rule,  with bushes that are well established  to fake off all wood that is smallci  : than a lead pencil. Tn young bushes  such hard pruning is not desirable.  When removing limbs they, should  be cut close to the main stem, that  is, without leaving stumps. Strong  growing Hybrid Perpctuals require  less priming than some of the other  sorts, ac if heavily pruned they tend  to a more vigorous growth of sappy  wood, making an oven larger ' bu.sh  than before. Moderate pruning is  therefore better  for     roses    of  this  class.  .Under the head of pruning, Bulletin No. J 7 of the Department of Agriculture at Ottawa, entitled "Hardy  Roses," explains that roses of the  hardiest group nearly all bloom on  wood of the previous year's growth,  or wood several years old. It is recommended that, in addition to heading back and thinning out, it is veil  to remove some the older wood each,  year, cutting the branches out at  the ground, thus making room and  lotting in air so that the young stems  will  develop  well.  h'ii'ty rcpvesenr.al.ivo businessmen  and farmers of the district, were the  guests of the Abbotsford Boarfl of  Trade on Thursday afternoon last  for a visit to the Sumas Dam.  IIy the courtesy of th'> Land Sot-  lsment Board, speeders conveyed the  party by the Great Northern railway, Engineer Sinclair showing the  men over the works."  The huge concrete structure is  nearing completion and pumps and  gates are ail in their places.  On one of the pumps an electric  motor is being installed, and will  be ready for work by the middle of  the month. 3t will have the forca  of 12 5 0  horses.  This single pump(, is the first of  four which, will complete the unit  of defence between Sumas Lake and  the Fraser.. Such is the margin.of  safety provided that this' one pump,  having a capacity of ��������� two hundred  cubic feet per second, will be able  to transfer all the natural drainage  of the valley to the    other side    of  the dam..  Taking time for the concrete to  "cure," the engineers are not hurrying the installation, but the  pumps will be ready to drain the  lake this fall.  The Sumas, Marshall and other  creeks having been pouring into the  lake for three months since the outlet was closed, still the basin is not  overfull. When the pump begins to  work it will more than clear the a-  mount of water that comes in, and  there is no fear of the land flooding  from  this  source.  .  Outside the dam the water level  is ten feet above the grass on, the  inside, an eloquent testimony to the  farmers of the condition of In3  prairie wore there no dyke. Grass  is inyer.ing and grain is growing  over thousands of acres that were  under water this time last year.  Very impressive was the appearance  of (he solidity of the work, width  of dykes aiul thickness of concrete.  These visitors agreed with all otherv  in expression of confidence gained  by an inspection of the work.  MRS. T.  H   LKJIMAN  IS.

The boys turned out in their new uniforms  and presented a very colorul  sight and promptly at eight o'clock, Mrs. K. Mcintosh, on  behalf of the Women's . Institute made a "short address and  then presented the stand to  the boys. Mr. J. A. Catherwood,  M. L. A. then came forward and  addressed the gathering in befitting manner.  The concert from beginning  to end was extremely well given and was by far . the finest  musicale yet rendered by any  Mission organization. The  playing lasted more than an  hour, after which the Band  and members retired to the  Mission Hotel, where a bountiful banquet awaited them, by  kindness of Mr. and Mrs. Thos.  Bradwell.  Several members of the Abbotsford Band were guests at  the banquet, also Mr. Miller of  the Vancouver Music Co'. Mr.  Miller who is quite an authority on band and orchestra work  stated that he was amazed at  the progress which the band  had made in so short a time  and he gave a most encouraging and interesting talk regarding his recent trip around the  world.  Other speakers of the evening were Mr. J. A. Catherwood  M. L. A., Dr. A. L. McQuarrie,  Mr. Jas. Plumridge, Mr. T.  Northcote, Mr. E. Osborne of  Mission City and Mr. W. Morgan," Mr. W. Gray, Mr. G.  Wright of Abbotsford.  After giving thanks to their  hosts, the boys brought the  evening to a close by playing a  few selections in the dining  room of the Hotel. Songs were  also sung by Mr. F. Wood and  Mr. D. Galliford.  The band will give their next  concert in the Bandstand on  Thursday evening, the 21st, at  8 p. m.  Damp Weather  Postpones Picnic  (From   the  Fraser  Valley  Record)  The monster community picnic arranged for Nicomen Island today has  been postponed on      account of the  heavy downpour of rain yesterday.

No limit will be set to the help  to Jbe offered to new settlers in the  agricultural sections of trie province  of- Quebec, according to Premier  Taschereau. The latest government  provision is to pay colonists at the  rate of $4.00 per acre for land  cleared on their colonization lots  since 1920. $7,000,000 have been  voted for provincial colonization.  The decision of the Canadian Pacific.

CLOVERDAI.E, June 11.���The
first, mile of paving on the Clover-
. dale-Blaine section of the Pacific
Highway, between the international
boundary, will be opened for traffic
on Thursday of this week, according
to an announcement from the contractors' in charge of the work. The
Pacifc Highway customs house,
which has been closed during the
time this section of the road was
under construction, will also be reopened on the same date.
In   taking  advantage  of this mile
of new paving on the Highway, motorists will have the choice of using
either the Hall's    Prairie or    Coast
Meridan  roads    as       detours,    and
again   coming  back  to  the  Highway
by  means  of  the     Campbell     River
road. If the Coast Meridian is used,
��� a turn east must be made, while it
the Hall's Prairie route is taken, the
turn is west.      From    each of    the
roads it. is one mile to the Highway.
Those  taking  the  Coast  Meridian
road also have    the    opportunity of
clearing the customs at Douglas, in
which case the    Meridan is' followed
straight to the boundary.
