C. asked a leading broiv  or why his firm did not make a  greater effort to secure his barb from  B. C, instead of Walla Walla. His  reply was: "They are not reliable,  having no central selling agency.  They sell individually to anybody at  varying prices. We are not safe in  handling   their   produce."  The existence of two associations  was re.ferrre.d to and, the come-back  was": "They are' not true.to their organizations. They only use them  when  they are stuck."  One must, admit the situation looks  from here as described. You are a  large growing district, superior in  many ways to any other in the province. You are not buying in the  cheapest market nor selling in tho  best. You cannot get up-to-date-facilities nor better railway accommodation because you lack sufficient unity  of purpose. You hs,ve "too many  cooks" on the selling end. You compete against one another. The price  of your vod stuff is marred and is  regulated by the inferior stuff yoa  ship cut. You have no standard, no  discipline or rules that can be in-  forced. Your Rasps and Blackberiies  have no superior.  Confidence is the basis of business  Have you confidence in yourself as  a district?  if not,  why not?  You can exec 11 by unity. District  organization arranging a season's  programme and carrying it out  would enforce stability. Enforce  your rules as to pack, etc., and secure  the respect  of all  fair  buy-i's.  A few words convey the remedy.  Organize with your associations and  be loyal to it.  MATZIC KUUIIARB.

Registration day passed quietly  and so far as we have heard all have  registered.  Mr.  James  Gillen  was at  Mission  City this week writing on his exams.  Mrs. Furlott took exception to tho  item appearing in last issue of this  paper staling that she "ran her car'  into Mr. Morgan's car, etc." She  says it not so, most, emphatically, and  it is just possible that she is right as  she is nn expert driver and knows  ' the rule of the road.  iirfr.i:  itw PAGfin twu  THE ABBOTSFORD POST  swrr  THE ABBOTSFORD POST  Published Every Friday  J. A. Bates j Editor and Proprietor  FRF AY,, JUNE  28th, '1918.  At a n/cent convention of the  VV. C..T. U. if appears Lhe ladies  expressed their views in regard  to sending cigarettes to the  boys overseas, but we are glad  that the meeting' in tlie Royal  Albert Flail of the Ottawa  branch of the Army and Navy  > veterans decided to "meet, tlie  language of intemperance and  intolerance with that of moderation.",   ���������  There is loo much solicitude  regarding the welfare and- uplifting of the boys overseas in  some quarters. Tf they do not  do anything worse than smoke  cigarettes while fighting the  battles of freedom against the  Runs and militarism, we think  (hey are doing well. It may or  may not be injurious to smoke  cigarettes; it is nothing as-compared with the depravity and  atrocities of the enemy, and if  a, cigarette will soothe a-moments pain or give the soldier  a few moments of pleasure we  believe the cigarette is a benefactor to the soldier boys at  the front. Will the ladies name  anything else that will tak'e the  place of the cigarette?  The soldier boys do not as  far as we know' attack any of  the weaknesses of the ladies of  Hit' W. C. T. U.    They are too  mind have long since-come to  the conclusion that a car is a  road maker of the very highest  grade. We have better roads  today than ever before with but  half the money spend on them.  Years ago the government voted double the money for Dewdney riding that is voted today,  and yet the roads of Dewdney  are on the whole better today  than they were ten years ago.  It is the automobile driven over  the road. It must, be, and we  are prepared to back up our assertion.  The markets comissioner hi  his report this week gives some  fair advice to,the fruit growers  to organize. Jt will be a happy  day lor this district when the  right kind of a man comes a-  lohg and whips all the growers  into one big strong union that  will market its fruit through  one source. Then will tho bank  account swell and prosperity  reign supreme.  The Duke of Marl borough-  says that the British are the  most skilled agriculturists in  the world."  buj-y fight  ing  in  the  cause of  freedom and liberty,  The question of the morals of  the boys at the front has been  upheld by some very good au-  thorilies and it looks like Hun-  propaganda to accuse the boys  of some" of the crimes they are  accused. Let us rather work  along acknowledged lines of  welfare for the boys. There are  lnt-ny of them. They need all  kinds of comforts, and there is  room in the Red Cross Society  and the Prisoners of War Society for ALL the ladies of Canada.  The plan to adjourn politics  in the U. S. has caused ac!ively  ! campaign for   the   presidental  ��������� election in 1920..   .  Advertising When Trade not Needed  Progressiveness of the Japanese is shown by a law enacted  by the Oriental government to  encourage highway transportation by granting subsidies tc  owners of motor trucks and  passenger automobiles. Instead of discouraging the use of  motor vehicles by unwise legislation and discriminatory taxation the Japanese government  new awards subsidies ranging  from $250 for small imported  cars to $1,000 for motor trucks  built in Japan. The English  and French governments have  paid subsidies for some years to  owners of trucks that met the  military specifications, but Japan is the first country to give  official recognition to the utili-  trian value of the passenger  automobile.  Jn British Columbia in unorganized districts it costs a man  money for a licence to run a car  He -pays $10.00 for the privilege  of having a car or for the privilege-of applying for a licence,  then he pays his $10.00 each  year for his licence. Then the  car is taxable. This year he  pays double taxation on its estimated value by the government. And apart, from "this he  is given roads to. drive over that  would make a man's hair grey.  ' A man may have a $800 .or a  $1000 team, harness and buggy  and yet he does not have to pay  these heavy taxes for that privilege, although such, an outfit  ies-a.ny more than a good team  ur-y as a car.  ft is time that automobiles  we:-e not looked upon as luxuries any more than a god team  of horses.  l-csides -expediting business,  we look upon the car as a bene-  ��������� factor to a community. Most  people of a thoughtful turn of  Generally a firm advertises Avhen  they want to secure more business.  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.  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. It is  on the outside back cover of Canadian Grocer, and is an appeal from  the Lake of the WToods Milling Co.,  Ltd., to the retail grocery trade of  the Dominion, the top line reading,  "We Ask. you to Sell LESS Flour."     l  The advertising points out the need  of the fullest co-operation Avith 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 use3 full  pagos to tell people th������ need for going easy on the flour supply, and  naming many substitutes that can be  employed successfuly to do this.  Too many firms make the mistake  of thinking that the public mind is  of adamant, and that,once their advertising campaign has been carried  to tho point of making an impress-  .on on ihe public mind 'if win 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  They are keeping their name and  ideals before the consumers of the  country, and protecting themselves a-  gainst the time when, under normal  conditions, they will once more be in  uptn competition with other , funis  soiling-a similar line.���������Printer and  Ppnblisher.  smz&iasmmxa  Tf I FPRON  I i.������JLi.!L������li k &\jkv  *rr-������a ������?r*r>j*f   v   jt'-whw w  ,fff 7yTr,i  fcRt ilMfv  Not so many years ago real estate  men used to be fond of telling of  money that. they.-might have made.

Crews, pastor of Central Methodist  Church, told his congregation at. a  -.'.hurch meeting last night that, he  felt impelled on account of iho war  to decline a $200 salary increase  which had just been voted him unanimously. It Avas 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 tho-  necessity of a motor car for' the pastor in attending to his duties, it just  goes to sIioav hoAv essential the automobile has become in modern business and social life. The passenger  automobile could no more be dispensed Avith now .than the telephone.

Grease cups are  gone over, oil reservoirs are watched  carefully, bearings are inspected regularly   and   frequently   cleaned.  Care in the select-Jon of lubricants  is important to him, as he realizes  th?.t each bearing, g^ar or spring requires its particular kind of lubricant.

Resolutions Avhich Avere passed as  the recent farmer's convention in  Vancouver Avers presented to the  government, and in every instance,  members of the delegation found  the government extremely sympathetic, and anxious to further the interests of the farmers, it is said.  In connection Avith the Sumas lake  dyking scheme, the government Avas  asked to procure first class expert  advice as to the suitability or otherwise, of putting the lake under control. The government has referred  this matter to the land settlemnt  board, Avhich is proceeding at once  to colect information and daia to report to the government soon. Itis understood that should the land settlement board report favorably on a reclamation scheme, the government  will give the project immediate consideration.  Concerning a resolution touching  on the hard surfacin.' of Fraser Valley roads, Premier Oliver referred  to t he extensive transportation systems in the valley and the heavy expenses incurred in providing such  roads at the present time.  Hon. Dr. King, minister.of public  works, Avas authorized however, to  secure all information possible and  now experimenting on a stretch of  road   outside   .Victoria.

He had two boxes at the St. George theatre  which was a vaudeville show. The point  that amused me was that they allow smoking  while the show goes on. and places on the  buck of the scat to strike .matches on. When  the show is half over they have a ten  minute intermission to serve tea or coffee  and cake. There are no lights in London at  night, all blinds are drawn and the only  light visible is a small one which shows the  policeman in the middle of the street. AVe  got the 11 :'M) p.m. train from Kuston station  .for Glasgow.. It is called the "Flying.Scotch-  p.iiw-i" aud arrives there at 0 a. in.. This  train does not carry sleeping cars so we had  to sit up all night and sleep the best way  we could. On arriving at Glasgow, I went  to the Overseas Club, -.which is run for the  berelit of soldiers and sailors visiting there.  H is a large build'uiy like the Hotel Vancouver and accommodates 070. All the help is  voluntary and is done by the different patriotic clubs. The tlrst thini;' I did after  breakfast was to go to the Food Controller's  and get my permit for sugar and meat, then  I went to a grocery store and got my 14  ozs. of sugar. It looked funny to see the  civilian people in the store with a little tin  box getting their 7 ozs. of sugar, which has  to do them for a week. You people over  there want to consider yourselves lucky in  regards to "cats", as the civilians here are  all on war rations. They, arc only allowed  an ounce of sujrar a day and three ounces  of meat, and before they can buy these they  must', have a permit from their i >cal Food  Controller's; oiriee.
