FRIDAY,   JUNE 21,  19IS  'tv^0Si������ 8  SI.00 per Year  PERSONALS  NEW  There has ben discovered in Kent  1 County,-just���������' outside'"the" City -of  Chatham, states Mr. R. Gray, president of the Gray-Dort Motors, a re-  ma rkable oil well which is considered by oil men and geologists, to be  one of the greatest discoveries in oil  in Canada up to the present time.  Since the first discovery, a second  well has been brought in. Tlie first  well discovered is producing over  4,000,000 feet og gas, and eighty barrels of oil per clay. The second well  is the greatest, ever tapped in the Dominion of Canada. It is good for,  and prod'.'-r-a 500 barrels, and over  per day, without pumping. It is flowing, and exports claim that, t.liis will  continue indefiniteljr. It is 3277 feet  deep, and is drilled deep into the  Trenton Limestone Formation, so  that it is tho depth of tho deepest  wells in Ohio, Texas, Indiana and  Kansas.  When Mr. Gray was in conversation with tho driller who successfully  sunk tho well, ho was advised that  contrary to the general practise, it  was unnecessary to shoot this well, in  that it suddenly burst forth when  struck and shot a column of oil into  the air thirty-five feet, at 250 pounds  pressure. Great difficulty was experienced iu capping it, due to the unexpected discovery and not having  the necessary instruments in hand,  the well was allowed lo run free for  a few days.  The drillers also state thai, tho  crude oil abounds richly in gasoline,  which is contrary to tho general oil  which has boon found In this part of  Ontario.  Already financial interests from all  parts of Canada and the Si.atos aro  flocking to this territory, and falling  nj) all possible loasos. This discovery will play an important part in relieving any possible shortage which  might arise in gasoline production in  Canada for soino timo to come., ari tho  oil la being shipped to the In-penal  Oil Company, of Sarnia.  To gain some idea of the production, number two well is producing  per day to the value of $2,000,000 in  crude oil and natural gas.  To Match Work  tter seas-Men  London,* June 17.��������� (Toronto Mail  and Empire-cable)���������The Yorudzu, a  Japanese newspaper dealing with the  question of intervention in Siberia,  says:  "What additional    resources    can  the Allies muster? Prompt action  by the Japanese army alone can save  England, France and humanity. The  Allies will soon request the intervention of Japan, who now stands  like an archer with bow bent.  "The answer must be instantaneous. Japan's army exists in vain if it  is not to be used to win the game  which divides the world. Japan must  call up half a million men, two million, or three iniliior,, if necessary,  and advance to the Urals, or beyond  until the main German army is encountered.  We will go as far as is necessary  to check the Germans effectively. We  fear no difficulties and will shrink  from no sacrifices, realizing that we  allies must win or suceumb to Teutonic domination."

It   did   this   by   the  systematic collection of all discarded  articles and their subsequent sale in  bulk  in London.    This achievement,  shows what can be done by the studied   elimination   of   waste.    One   of"  tho principal objects of the N'ationai  Register, which will lie taken on 22  of June, is the elimination of waste,  ft will accomplish this by providing  tho   Government  with  the  information necessary to a scientific direction  of  tho  country's  man  power.     Production, agricultural  as  well  as  industrial, will be increased and in the  process the expenditure of human energy   in  useless  and   non-productive  pursuits  will  be reduced  to a minimum.     As  a  result  of  (ho  information secured    on    Registration     Day  Canada  will renew her strength  lor  the final onslaught, against the powers intent on arresting the course of  civilization.  ������������������ The Anglican Sunday school hold  r(heir picnic out at Mr. i-I'U-Toui's  last Saturday.- Fifteen children and  many more adult;' were, present.

Ton years, is a.long time in  the life ol" a country weekly in  a sniail town, and the pages of  the paper during that Lime record many changes in Mission  City and district. Many have  come and gone, and they are  still coming and going.  There is one thog that we  are especially proud of, and  that is the noble work that this  district-is doing in the cause of  freedom. When we go over  the long list of names ol our  soldiers who volunteered their  lives to fight for home and  country Ave are extremely glad  the farmers that will not only  redound to the benefit of ihebig  centre, but. also Lo the farmers  as well.    All have business difficulties to contend with, but we  believe that at the present time  the.fanner has more than his  big share.      The business men  of Vancouver can do much   to  neip along the progress of the  agricultural districts.  ���������  The prosperity of. the Fraser  Valley and the cities    of    New-  Westminster    and    Vancouver  are linked so close together that  the advance of the one1 cannot  help but be of benefit,    to    the  other, and any step taken that  tends to co-operation is a step i  for progress.

Vancouver need the products satisfactorily  thr.t we located in this district,  but that gladness is saddened  by the. remembrance of the  brave lads who have found a  grave' in Prance; or along the  battle, line, and one oi our hopes  is* that we shall be able to appreciate the safe return oi" all  who corne back to us. The women of the district are also doing excellent work for the Red  Cross and Prisoners of War.  and ether work that tends to  help the Allies. When the war  is over may wre all be able to  say, 'Mission, you have done  your part well.'  When the war is settled and  all have returned again to civilian life we think we foresee a  very bright future for this province and there is no doubt that  Mission City and district will  share in .that prosperity.  of the soil of the Fraser Valley  and the Fraser Valley needs a  market.      Why    cannot co-operation be so extended that almost all the farm products of  the Fraser Valley be marketed  in Vancouver.    Somewhere the  f other day we heard or read'the-  remark that the transportation,  companies grew    rich    taking  people to Vancouver to live and  then became richer still by taking food to them to enable them  :o live.    We know that millions  jf dollars worth of food conic  '.nto the province wich year, and  much of it could be grown in  ���������he Fraser Valley. '  Vancouver get acquainted.  Elsewhere we publish an item  that will appeal to many people who have for some time  been trying to solve in their  own mind a feasible way for the  winning of the war. The item  refers to the willingness of the  Japanese to march three million men beyond the Urals to  meet the main German army, if  necessary.  The theory of   allowing   the  Japanese as allies of   England  France and humanity, to march  west through Siberia   with   an  army appears to many   people  one  way  of winning  the   war  and saving   Russia   from    the  Huns.    Some go so far even as  to suggest that Russia pay Japan in territory for this.    Japan  is bound to expand in the next  century and expansion in   Asia  should meet with the approval  of tlie Allies.    Jc\\yjM is not asking U)r it, such an undertaking  should be rewarded.    Intervention ii; (ho east is almost a ne-  ccssiiv,   ir  th0  Allies  think of  ird'/i)  .us si a.  We re-id in the dailies of the  recent visit of the wholesale  bureau of the Vancouver ooard  of trade to Chilliwack. They  may visit other parts of the Val-  J*\y. The members are satisfied  with the results of the visit.  We all hail with delight the  community spirit of the Vancouver board of trade. The city  should get acquainted with the  country, and the country with  the city. Vancouver is a growing centre and a visit of its business men to the country districts will do much towards establishing an acquaintance with  The second Markets Report Bulletin of the Prairie-  Markets Commissioner hits the  Mission strawberries quite hard  and there are a number of the  growers and their friends who  do not just like the idea first-  class.  It would seem that if the  fruit business of this district or  any part of B. C. is to become  successful in the full meaning  of that word that the education  Df the growers should begin at  home not on the market. For  the past ten years that we know  of the fruit growers have been  up against a stiff proposition  in some way or another, and the  highly successful growing,  packing, transportation and  marketing of our neighbors to  the south is continually held up  to our growers as a sample to  follow.  There are new men coming  into the business every year,  and many of the old ones becoming so disgusted that they  quit the business. For this  reason proper information  should always come to the new  grower, so that he won't have  ���������:o, p.i'\c-v a few years, leave the-  '.'usl'ii-ss and follow some oilier  >cci!p:.;,lioi-. We want to see  he fi it*t growers successful as  we believe there is no other  district in the province so well  adapted to the fruit business as  this portion of the Fraser Valley.  The press of Canada has not forgotten the deluge of charges that it  not during- the lant Federal elections  -.0 the effect that it had been bought  up "by the    Government    advertising  natter running in its columns. Tho  "'.rain   Growers'. Guide  of   Winnipeg  ���������eraMs the incident, and remarks:  "The published figures revealing  -he actual cost, of floating the Victory  r oan show that out of total expenditures amounting to $5,000,000 only  $207,000 went to all the newspapers  and Journals in Canada for advertising while $750,000 went as commis-  *don to brokers, $1,140,000 to canvassers, and $984,395 to hankers."  If it were pot'siblo to pro-cool fruit,  to .IS degrees and load it in a, cool  condition, keeping tho car fully iced  and closed until its destination is  reached, little trouble from mold  would be found.

Empress Zitii. younpr, plain, sweetest of
mothers, intellectually superior to any other
qucenin Austria-llun^aryand at .my moment
may become the leader in a movement which
may brin,T peace  to  the  war-torn   world.
Austria-irunffary is the weak link iu (he
kaiser's chain. Without Austria-llunirary the
central powers would crumble. While Austria
Uumrary started the %var���possibly at the
kaiser's suir'rustion,  certainly with  ids support
than     when
���conditions  are   different  now
Joi.eph 1. reigned.
With Emperor Charles I., as with his lovely
wife, '-Impress Zita, the war is not popular
���no more so than with the jri'i'-it majority
of the Austrian and Humrarian peoples who
luiip- since realized thaL they have nothing to
irain and their suffering:, even if victory for
tho central powers should result, vould leave
them but chattels in the hanus of the kaiser.
i-hnoress Zita despises the kaiser and makes
no secret of the fact. She lias no love for
anything German. She consistently refuses to
have a German book in her library and seldom' speaks a word of German. She is believed lo be directly icsponsible for the Prince
Sixtus letter, the most sensational development ot recent war diplomacy. .Roth sha
and her husband are devout Catholics and
anv effort the pope may renew looking- to a
cessation of hostilities will unuiiestionably
have unciuaJitlecl support iu the royal household of Austria-If uujrary.
Two of Empress Zila's brothers. Sixtus and
Francis Xavier of Uourbon-J'arma, are oliieers
in the Belsian army. Sh�� not only offered no
objections when they announced their intention of joining the allied armies, but is believed to have secretly encouraged them.
That was before her husband had ascended
the throne. They first applied for commissions in the French army, but were refused
An application to tlie. British war cencrals
who likewise refused, and except for Queen
Elizaboth's intercession Kin? Albert ot Bel

married he brouj-lil. from hiw stroiur box a
bi-ooch precisely lihe her own. And he explained, so far uh ho know it, their history.
- The two brooches once, were a n-iir of ear-
i-iiU'-s owned by iMaria Theresa. When she sent*
her ��� daughter Marie Antoinette, to become
queen of France, she was worried for her
future happiness. A saintly woman told hello make brooches of her earrings and to give
one lo her daughter and to keep the other
and   pray   upon   it   for  her  good   fortune. -
.Legend has ever held that peace and,'happiness will come to those who may unite the
p-i.ii' of earrings again.
lint somehow the magic of the rc-Mnrod
e.-i.rrings has grown rusty through tlv.-ir long
diMi'si1. for today peace and happi 110=5 seem
far removed from this charming princess of
i'anr.a,  now empress of Austria-IIU'i^ary.
(impress Zita's girlish figure, yet full of
iiuc-eidy grace, caught the fancy of the Vien-

love her. .Mrs: Peniield, wiie ot Frcilei.c
Penliield. Amcrionn auibassidor at Vienna,
spoke of her as "everything thiit is f-.wect
and simple and with it a woman, every inch
a   fiucen."
This woman may yet be the neans of un-
doiiiir the kaiser and bringing peace to the
we rid, winning for herself the siuici she- srelts
aad an  immortal crown.
How diifercnt is Empress Zita fr.i'n. Oucen
Alexandra of Kussia and Queen Suphw of
Greece.
Queen Alexandra, known as the most bc.au-
��� tiful of aucuns. despised every Hung- Jiussian.
f,he would" not speak tho language -.inless <.om-
pelled to; she hesitated long bcrore ac:ep'ing
the Greek orthodox faith. Every incident Jn
licr ife reffected her cold, arrogant sud superstitious nature, except her affairs with Count
Orloff and later with the monk Rasputin,
which revealed her duplicity and her unfaithfulness. She once caricatured the czar, her
husband, as a bald-headed infant tied to a
high chair, surrounded by a crowd of grand
duked and grand duchesses, each uf wlrjm
tried to feed him in a different way, with -the
result that the infant was distracted and in
tears.
Though she left Germany lo marry the czar
of all the Musoias and it has never even been
intimated that tlie emperor out not, do everything possible to make her happy, she maintained a constant correspondence with the
kaiser. Long after the two countries were at
war this correspondence was continued, and if
is believed that many state secrets and much
information helpful to the central powers
reached   Berlin   in  this   way.
As for Queen Sophie of Greece, the kaiser's
sister, she encouraged King Constant ine to
break his treaty pledge with Serbia: she opposed Premier Vouizelos and the will of the.
Greek people; she was insulting to the diplomatic representatives of the allies in Athens,
and upon her is laid the responsibility for the
situation which finally compelled tho allies to
force Constantino to abdicate. AVhile Queen
Sophie remained, Athens was but a *py station
for the. kaiser and Greek shores hurborcd
German submarines.
Sweden's persistent partisanship for Germany,  though  outwardly maintaining ncutral-
TIip Hiim-iton Court Singers present two prof-raras on the third tiny which sound a note of originality. Elias
Dmv the well-known Chiciij-o critic and conch, made a special trip to England and spent three months in a search
for' Eivl^h motion soims now to the American platform. He found not only old motion songs, but tuneful folk
bouts dating back several centuries. Many of these have been cleverly woven into the programs of the Hampton
Court Singers. These programs are presented in costume befitting the era in which the music was written. The
members have splendid voices and present their offerings in an artistic and faultless manner. For several seasons
few musical companies of the Chautauqua platform have been in greater demand throughout the country. _ ___

There arc a  niim.bor of  wholes-tie  Iiousoa   represented  in     the    district  ���������   durinsr the past    few    days,    among  these being Mr. C.  H.  Barrington, oi'  M.--esr-.''Plinikott &��������� Savage, of Calgary  In  conversation with  him  this wcok  lie had many things to say regarding  the   remarks   made   by   the   Markets"  Commissioner.     He considers that so  far as the packing is concerned and  the condition of the    berries,   when  shipped, there should be no fault to  .   find.     Fie says that one hundred per  cent, of tho trouble is in  the variety  of  the  berries   grown,   the principal  being tlie Marshall,  which  is not tin  exceptionally good shipping berry and  at. the same tivr-G t.lie Dominion   Express do not try (o help these ship-  . pcrs by giving (.hem suitable cars to  ship in.  ���������1-5c considers that when the berries*  are moving jn any bulk that, there  should be a refrigerator car for the  safe carriage, of such a perishable  article. FJc also thinks (hat there is  no douht flhoiii the berries arriving  in Calgary in bad shape, but. it is up  to Mr. Grant the Markets Commissioner to get. at the facts regarding  the condition before he comes out  v.'ith such positive statements as he  made in the Fruit Markets Bulletin,  on page one of June 1 dt.h issue, where  he says: "Some berries are arriving from Mission and Whonnock,  looking dead and unfit for table use.  They are class two and would be better made into jam than lowering prices on this market. This does not  happen in transit. They are dull  looking when picked."'  It is an easy matter for any man  to get stung in buying strawberries  and Mission is no exception to the  rule. All last week 90 per cent of  the fruit shipped east was Jn such  condition that any expert would take)  a gambling chance as far a8 "���������Vinnipeg |  He has in his possession a letter received from Douglas, Man., by a  local grower and read in part as fol-  fo  -as:  Your Ad. in This Paper  *"*"&  ���������"gas  "BECAUSE   THE  RICiHT  PEOPLE  ARE  LOOKING FOR YOUR AD.  .If you COULD (although,, OF COURSE, you  can't) stop every man you meet.on the streets  asd ask: "Do you want to buy a pair of shoes?"

He defends tho Japanese by saying  that they are putting up as good a  pack as is possible under the circumstances.    The hallocks are we'll filled  beforet hey are nailed up.  They are  not .held over any length of time as  t'.vo trips a day are made to the station.They  are   not  crating   for  shipment after rain, putting all wet berries   into   buckets   for1 tho  jam   factory.    Jn  fact thoy are> doing all  in  their  power to   maintain   good  pack  for export, and ii these berries were  to arrive in Calgary in firm condition  IMr.  Grant  would  find  that the hallocks well filled and  the orates overweight.     Loss of weight is caused by  shrinkage   in   transit   caused   by   no  oilier means than I hat tho express car  is too hot for such a soft  /arioly as  is principally grown hero.     If a ven-  filalcr cp.r  wore   used   there     is     no  doubt   there   would    be   very   little  trouble in shipping to Calgary.  ICvory man here in tho business  large and small, is perfectly willing  to do the right tiling and it.is up to  tho Markets commission to educate  l horn instead of handing 'them such  rough criticisms as have been contained in the Bulletin iho past two  wi-oks. As a result of the orlticinm.-i  says .Mr. Harrington, Vancouver buyers have benn for llio past few weeks  gottings berries at :?.''..u() to $.'{.50 a  crate, paying at the station and only  for boiTiDH that, tho grower**) considered too ripo to go as far as tho  prairies.  Mr. Harrington ���������aaya that the grow-  ors use too much fertilizer on the  soil, which has a tendency to soften  the berries.  But when the business has been secured, when the, goods have found  their way into the homes of the people, there is often a tendency to let'  the advertising slide���������to use half  pages instead of whole ones���������to advertise at intervals instead of: continuously. . ���������  A good example of the reverse of  this has come to. our notice. Jt is  on the outside back cover of Canadian Grocer, and is an appeal from  the Lake of the Woods Milling Co.,  Ltd., to the retail grocery trade of  the Dominion, the top line reading,  "We Ask you to Sell LESS Flour."  The advertising points out the need  of the fullest'co-operation with the  Food Controller, and urges grocers  to do their part in trying to point  out to customers the necessity for  economy at home in order that, the  forces at the front may be supplied..  The company has all the business  it can handle, and yet it uses full  pages to tell people the need for going easy on the flour supply, and  naming many substitutes that can be  employed successful}* to  do this.  Too -many firms make the mistake  of thinking that the public mind is  of adamant, and that once their advertising campaign lias been carried  to tho point of making an impression on the public mind it will remain for all time to come. It will  do no such thing.  The Lake of the Woods Milling Co.  see the advisability of advertising  e/en when they do not need business  Thoy are keeping their name and  ideals before the consumers of the  country, and protecting themselves a-  gainst. tho time when, under normal  conditions, they will oucp more bo in  op-r-.n competition with other fn ins  soiling a-simibir line.���������Printer and  Fpublisher.

It was decided, however  to set aside this sum annually, the  money to be used for'the purpose of  the  pastor's   automobile.  The need of the passenger automobile in business for' farming operations is too generally known to require comment. But when a church  congregation officially recognizes the  necessity of a motor car for the pastor in attending to his duties, it just  goes to show how essential the automobile has become in modern business and social life. The passenger  automobile could no more be clispen-  now than the telephone.  u  I  c  I have a large andvspiendid supply of  Raspberry Canes-for s-ale at lew prices.

Large amounts of money are laid out  in local and national campaigns with  ��������� the idea of familiarizing the public  with certain lines of goods.  The value of this method has been  proved so often and so conclusively  that it can be accepted as a fact.  Not so many years ago real estate  men   used   to   be  fond   of   telling  of  money  that  they  might  have  made.  They rolled under their tongue    with  great satisfaction the fact  that they  might have bought lots at ten dollars  a fool, iin'd worked them off 0it some  other  lobster  at fifty and   sixty   per  inch.
