The family had only been resident  here for the past two months, and  sincere sympathy is extended to the  bereaved in their sudden sorrow.

S. B. in the central Fraser Valley,  who writes Jtoom Edmonton that he  is engaged M" assisting to locate the  llebrideanB iu Canada. These immigrants aro being locuted as speedily  as possible; he says, which would indicate that no home had been provided" for these people before, thoy  left thoir home in Scotland. Much  has durlni the past few weeks been  written regarding these new settlors,  and It does seem a pity that such a  bungle hoB been made in placing  these settlers on the land.  To our    mind    it    would    appear  strange that Reel  Deer, Alberta,    o:  any part of Alberta should have bee--,  chosen  to  locate  them  permanently  These people have been used at home  to be near the salt water,    and are  expert fishermen, in which case Van  couver Island would have been a'wiser choice.    It would have been more  in keeping with the conditions in th-.  Hebrides  Islands.       And     there     is  plenty of available land on    Vancouver Island, and ..with    its    excellent  climate, ehould  have  been  an  idea!  place for* them. f  THE FRASER RIVER���������ITS  PRESENT AND  FUTURE  Over 64 years ago a man named  Colonel Moody named New Westminster a-te a site for a great city.  Then it was predicted that in later  years the city would become an important industrial and commercial  centre. "   This prophecy has not yet  - been fulfilled. . More than half a  century has passed during which  time the Royal City has been' eclipsed by her neighboring sister city.  Vancouver. The growth of Vancouver has b*en considerably aided by  the Canadian. Pacific Railway, which  fhas. its terminus in that city, and it  -'has tended to detract, in a measure,  attention from tlie    Fraser    Valley.  ' Now, however, residents and people  of this district are beginning to no-  . tice the immense natural advantages  -. of their f-avored location. The Fraser  Valley and New Westminster in par-  ticular have unrivalled advantages  :fo commercial and Industrial development.  The Royal. City, situated on the  right bank of the mighty Fraser  river, sixteen miles from its mouth,  commands an** extensive view of the  fertile Delta lands and the Gulf of  Georgia to the west, _while stretching eastward  to  the    Coast    Range  - are the upper reaches of this wonderful valley. Any discussion of the  industrial development of the Fraser Valley must necessarily deal with  the commercial and business activities of New Westminster, the natural marketing and shipping point of  this richest and most productive district in British Columbia. It has  good fresh water harbor.    Its water  - frontage is 17 miles in length. These  ttiings coatribute greatly to the advantage of the city.  New Westminster is the    agricultural market of the Valley, and for  ,- that .reason, a great Provincial exui-  ��������� ..bition ifl held here every year.  it has admirable transportation  facilities, including. the Great  Northers Railway, ' the Canadian  Pacific Railway, the Canadian National Railway, and British Columbia Electric. The junction of the  two is here. Tugs and steamboats  . are .continually plying up and down  the river, carrying freight and passengers. -The great Fraser Rive*  bridge, <5uilt in 1902, and one of the  finest in the world, carries steam,  electric, and vehicular traffic, with  approaches whose total length it- 11,~  9&5 feet, the bridge itself, being one-  half mlUe long. The Fraser Mills  adjoining, one of tho largest mills  in the world, has loaded vessels of  over St.OOd tons, and is shipping lumber to all parts of the world including Alaska, South Amercia, Australia anel Europe.  The Fraser Valley can support an  immense industrial population  There are 2,000,000 acres of good  arable land, 50,000 approximately,  being eultivated. Over $2,000,000  worth oi produce every year is raised in tHB Valley. New Westminster's  individual output is over $8,000,000  annually, ita payroll $2,000,000. The  proceeds from the lumber trade equal  -$3,000,000 a year, the fish trade  $300,000.    It is the third industrial  city in  Western  Canada, and  by far  the greatest for its size.  The Royal City is rapidly lherons*  ing its industrial output, and trade-  is being attracted here hccauBO of  the splendid commercial sites, the  I'ine transportation ..facilities', and  the abundance of electrical powui  for factory purposes. The opening  of the P-mainu Canal has greatly influenced shipping by boat. Now  Westminster is prepared to take special advantage of this. Grain elevators might-be constructed here for  the handling of wheat from Alberta,  which can be shipped by way of the  Panama Canal at a saving of from  five to eight cents per bushel over  the Fort Willim route.  New Westminster, with the Fraser  Valley behind it, is destined to exert an important and more or less'  controlling influence over the surrounding country, and it stands out  pre-eminently as the only district in  British Columbia in which development on municipal linos has taken  place to any great extent. It will  soon have a terrace garden alons? the  river front which will aid in advertising the Royal City as tho beautiful  ' Scenic City of British Columbia."���������  Prize essay written by Miss 131 va  Shortreed of New Westminster.  ���������janwn  VACCINATION  IS  2,000 YEARS OLD  "Vaccination is an outgrowth of  man's effort to protect himself from  pestilence by using nature's methods of defense," says Dr. G. W. McCoy, director of the Hygenie Laboratory of the U.S. Public Health Service. "Primitive man noticed that  recovery from a- first attack by most  diseases gave immunity against other attacks; and some 2,000 years ago  he began to inoculate- his fellows  with smallpox when conditions seemed propitious instead of waiting for  nature to do it at some time, when  conditions might be    very    unpropi-  tious.  Inoculations against small pox  were made in Indian and in China as  early as" 300 B. C. Later, when the  disease reached Europe, inoculation  went with it, supplemented by a new  method called "selling smallpox"���������  exposing a well person to contact  with- one ill with the disease so that  if he survived he would be proof  against it.  Inoculation differs somewhat from  vaccination as' devised by Jenner,  but the principle is the same. Moreover, long before Jenner's day it  was known that an attack of cowpox  gave immunity from smallpox; and  records show that men who had recovered from cowpox had themselves inoculated with smallpox to  make the proof conclusive. Jenner,  however, as he himself says, "place 1  vaccination marks on a rock" where  he knew it would be immovable.  Before the days of vaccination  conservative estimates show thai  one-tenth of all deaths were due to  it. Today smallpox is rare; many  physicians have never seen a case;  and, where vaccination is consistently practised no deaths from it occur.  Formerly smallpox was considered a  children's disease; and it still is a  child's disease���������where infantile and  school vaccination is neglected. Witness the Philippines, where four or  five years ago, after years of neglect  of vaccination, an epidemic swept  away nearly 5,000 persons', a  large percentage of whom were children under ten years of age.  In the United States well vaccinated communities show low smallpo".  rates-*-Maryland with one-tenth  case per thousand population; Ne-v  York with one-fortieth per thousand,  and the District of Columbia with  0.14 per thousand. Poorly vaccinated states tell another story; Oregon  with 1.45; Washington with 1.72;  and Kansas with 2.0 per thousand  population.  /Some communities wait till an epidemic breaks out and then rush to  vaccinate. These stop the disease-  after it has caused many deaths and  has "branded" many survivors'. Sixteen months age, in Kansas City, an  epidemic of smallpox began, yielding 3 5 cases and 123 deaths; and a  CONTROLLING   THE   MOSQUITO  ,','The discomfort    produced by    th  riip'aeiuito  during the    early summei  nlantfis leads- not    only the scientist  but the mini on the street to considei  whether the pest cannot be controlled.   ��������� The question  often asked,  "O  what value, is the mosquito?" has not  been - satisfactorily   answered. ���������    Fortunately, methods of controlling th!;  insect havo :been discovered and    ar*  boing applied with greater    oi-    less  auccelss'.  .    Portions of    tho    tropic,  .woiii'd,, perhaps,    never    have    been  ���������made/habitaula  for the    white mai  had  not successful  mosquito control  methods been discovered. The mean**  employed in tho tropics    havo    been  found applicable to other places.  It has long been understood thai  the iimltiplicalion of the niosqulte  depends pn pools or ureas of water,  mow* o'r-"hpss stagnant. In these Ih.--.  mosjuiiito'dopoHlts its egs, \fhlch soon  develop into larvae and then into adult insects. The larvae, it has been  discovered, are destroyed by contact  with an oily substance. The remedy,  therefore, .is found in applying oil to  the breeding places of the insect. A  very small1--amount has been fouiu'  sufficient to spread itself over a considerable firoa of water. This' extremely thin layer is sufficient l'~  destroy all of the larvae that conic,  iii contact with It.  Tho  Entomological  Branch  of the  Federal   Department   of   Agriculture-  has for several years    been working  on this problem in British Columbia  Last year the    district    surrounding  the town of Banff    in    Alberta    wm.  dealt with.    An area of several miles  in extent was surveyed .and breeelinc**  ���������placcs were treated.    The area treated included    both    open    ponds and  marshy   spots   clothed    with     dense  willow growths.    The work was done  during May and June,    when    2,800  gallons of oil were applied.    Watering cans and knapsack sprayers were  used in spreading the oil, which    wav  aprayed  on all  water    where larvae  were found.    Coal oil alone was. used,  as it-was .feared that, owing to cold  nights, heavier oil would not become  distributed.    Although  a number ot  inaccessible places' were missed, t  ^  results of the oiling were very marked.    It is estimated    that    seventy-  five percent, of control was realized  In an article describing this work, in  the May-June number of . The Agn:  cultural Gazette of Canada, the author states that the town of Banff and  vicinity was rendered    comparatively  free from the pest.���������Dominion    Department of Agriculture.

The scenery at Jasper Park is delightful, and when Ihe park becomes  more widely known, will be visited  by a very large number each year  who wiHh a short holiday and pleasant outing.  Jasper Park was made a national  playground and a big. game reserve  by the Canadln .government in 1907  although it was not until seven years  later that the boundaries were fixed.  The name selected was derived from  that of Jasper Hawes���������denominated  by French traders, because - of his  hair, Tete Jaune���������an employee of  the North-West Company in charge  of Jasper House, created by- that  company in 1808 near the northern  tip of Brule-Lake as a trading post.  The area of the Park is' 4,400  square miles���������the largest in the dominion. Some conception of this  vast area may be gathered from the  fact that it is more than double thj.t  of the province of Prince Edward Island, is-almost as large as the state  of Connecticut, a little over the half  as' large as the size of Ulster (Ireland) and nearly double that of Devonshire���������one. of England's large-it  counties. On the west it extends to  the boundaries of British Columbia,  and,on the east to where the foothills  of the Rockies slope towards the  great prairie country, while from  north to south it has' a length of  about fifty-five miles.  The main Lodge 'contains a, large  lounge, dining room, ballroom, bil-  lard room ' and . twelve , .bedrooms,  with all modern' conveniences. A  beautiful screened, veranda encircles  the lounge and dining room with an  octogbnal rest room. The rotunda of  this lodge is 120 feet long by 40 feet  wide, with a dining room 98 x 40  opening into it. The veranda is 16  feet wide and about 220 feet long.  The bedrooms in the main lodge are,  115 x 35 feet, the kitchen covers  140 x '42 feet, being fitted with all  modern electrical machines and appliances.  There are 18 bungalons 24 x 36  each with four rooms, each with bath  and sitting room, and veranda; two  bungalows 26x70 with 12 single  rooms; three double suites, 32 x 30:  four single suites. 16 x 30 feet, each  with bedroom,, sitting room, toilets  and bath, and two staff buildings  66 x 24. The laundry and boiler  house is 28 x 65 feet. ; All these  buildings are supplied .with water  from a steel tank of    50,000 gallon  capacity.  All the buildings' in the Park, except the hardware, are built of rustic from the Park, and. are -most  luxuriously furnished. It is an ideal  place for a convention, or a holiday.

A few days ago it looked as though  there might he high and dangerous  water, but the cool weather of the  past few days has almost decided tho  matter���������at least for the present. The  high tide of the season conies shortly  when if the river is low it is not considered fatal, but when the water is  high, it brings with it an anxious"day  or two.

In the last analysis, adequate fire  protection resolves it������elf down to  the question of whotlier or not llio  people of (his country wish to savo  thoif wood-using industries. Lot us  look into the '-ervico of these to Iho  noun try. Tho value of the manu  factured pulp and paper products is  $2.r)0,000,000 per annum. The various companies have invested in tho  business some $87r>.o'uOI000. ,'They'  employ 3.'1,000 men in tho mills and  in tho forest and they pay them each  year $<l 0,0001000 in wages. Isn't  that business worth saving.  The value of lumber, lath and  shingles produced in one year is  $150,000,000. Lumber means boards  and deals, dimension stock���������not the  finished product, as in the case of  paper. I can't find out just how  much is' added to' this value by the  various minor wood-using industries  With reservations,' I will say that  the minor industries, which depend  entirely upon wood, produce product?  to the value of $60,000,000 annually, They have an invested capita1  of over $50,000,000. They employ  13,000 people and pay annually ir  wages around $14,000,000.. Is it not  worth some effort to keep these industries-going?  ��������� Are these    worth while?  To these should be "added the    industries that depend in essential pari  but not entirely,    upon     forest products.    These,    such as    the    horse  drawn  and     motor-drawn     vehicles  produce each year products valued a  $86,553,314.     The  capital     investec  totals  over  $65,000,000.       The  employees number over 90 00  to whon  are  paid   wages  amounting  to  nearly  $12,000,000.  Going back to the lumber indus:  try proper, we find that its invested  capital reaches $250,000,000. I;  employs 55,000 men, and gives them  $600,000,000 in wages annually  That business is worth saving too, is-  it not?  There are more than 100,000  people in Canada at work converting  the forest product into wealth in  some form or other. They are chiefly heads of families or the bread  winners of families, thus they represent probably a half million people  dependent upon the forest for a livelihood. Are they worth while , in  their work? Are they worth while  - to the country?  FINDS THINGS    GOOD IN NORTH  Switzerland leads  electric railways.  the world    in  VICTORIA, June 21���������Hon. E. D.  Barrow, minister of agriculture, after his three weeks' inspection trip  of agricultural conditions in the  Bulkley and Nechako valleys and  Cariboo  country.  Creameries at Vanderhoof and  Quesnel are doing well this year  and are increasing their output o;  dairy products, Mr. Barrow said. He  declared the country is gradually  opening up, with new settlers coming in all the time.  "This has been an exceptionally'  favorable season for the growth ot  all grains, grasses and fruits," _.lu  said. "The farmers who have been  having a hard time of it expect to  pull out this season in better shape  than for years. Beef cattle are in  better condition in the Bulkley valley than last year.  "Farmers have had great difficulty in the past in marketing' their  livestock at the Coast owing to the  fact that Prince Rupert and camps  along the Coast have been using beef  from Edmonton. We are arranging  with the Board of Trade at -Prince  Rupert for the establishment of a  public slaughterhouse in that city,  which will solve the problem of marketing cattle from north British Columbia.

JUST THE FEMININE HABIT  Whey were bound for the Wembley Stadium, and could think of  nothing but the cup final until the  hooded two-seater overtook them.  Then the visition of a blue-eyed flapper at the wheel made football seem  of secondary importance.  So soon as it was ahead of the  coach, the little car zig-zagged wildly from hedge to hedge, then pulled up right across the road.  On went the brakes, and 28 stalwarts rushed to see what tragedy  the hood concealed.  "Are you hurt? What's the matter?"  they panted.  The flapper stared in bewilderment. . "There's nothing the matter," she said coldly. "I was only  powdering my nose."���������The Commercial Motor.
