The "Provincial  Government accordingly deferred  taking further action pending the result of a general federal election. The  question of the old agreement was  taken up by Premier Oliver at Ottawa  a few days ago with Hon. Charles  Stewart.  The land when reclaimed will have  a value of about $300,000 and will  be sold in small blocks for intensive  farming. The profits of the transaction are to bo applied to reduce the  cost of the general reclamation which  includes about 22,000 acres of privately owned lands, of which about  one-half are already reclaimed.

Canadian Coin At  Par in Seattle  .SEATTLE, Feb. 27.���������Canadian  money jumped suddenly back to par  here today for the first time since the  war, and speculators' in the coin of  the Dominion cashed in for big profits.  Seattle retailers forced the market  back to normal with the announcement through the retail trade bureau  of the Chamber of Commerce that  they wanted Canadian trade, much  of which had been lost since the purchasing power of the Dominion dollar dropped.  Leading banks in Vancouver have  received no advice yet of any change  in the exchange rate. They point  out, that the rate is set in New York  and that the action of'the retail bureau will have no immediate' effect  upon* the rate, although it Is admitted that eventually it may force the  banks to lower the premium.

Although    sho  had been in    poor   health for   somtr  years she maintained her cheery disposition with so much   courage"   and  fortitude that her friends were greatly shocked when a   serious   development of. the malady occurred in December, necessitating her entry into!  the hospital.

Few merchants realize this vital point    in their  business'.

The '.reason'  why the majority of" advertisers    do  not make "a success"of their advertising is" the "fact that they do   not realize that the newspaper is actually a  salesman."

The petitioners allege no such authority was ever given. The allegations in the petition summarized are  as follows.  1. That Mr. Johnson knowingly  made false declaration respecting his  election expenses.  2. That Mr. Johnson had knowledge of certain payments illegally  paid by others than his official agent  in connection with said election.  8.'That Mr. Johnson had knowledge of the alleged falsity of his official agent's declaration as to payments of certain accounts, and that  he had knowledge of his official  agent's omission of certain payments  from his official ded&ration.  4. That Mr. Johnson had -'knowledge that certain money was subscribed" to his election expenses by a  citizens' committee , and by certain  persons, and that such stims were not  properly set forth in the official declaration.  5.

GASH   GROCER ABBOTSFORD,   B.   C.  A; United Statesi.bureau has carrion  out'some interesting experiments, to  show the difference... between solid  tires and- pneumatic tires. The result  is to condemn the solid rubber tire  as a-most effective smasher of roads  ,A'truck was taken carrying about  4 1-2 tons. The first test was with  an old solid rubber''tire 1 inch thick,  the .second with anew tire 2 1-2 inchesi thick, and then a last test with a  pneumatic fire.  The road selected had an uneven  surface, and the force with which the  wheel hit after passing over the  bump was measured. At five miles  an hour the blows measured 11,600  lbs. with the old tire, 9400 with the  new sold tire and 7100 lbs. with the  pneumatic tire.  The truck was then tested at a  speed of 14 miles an hour. The force  of the blow increased ' with the lod  tire by 150 per cent., the new solid  tire 1 00 per cent., and with the pneumatic tire only 17;per cent. In other  words, the old tire when It went ovor  the humps hit the road with a force  on each occasion of 12 tons.  Saturday; march 4th, 1922  . .

Casgrain, of Quebec City,  in 1807. The car has been used regularly up to within a few years ago,  and is still in running order, but th6  inability of the owner to"purchase"' a  size of tire suitable for it prevents  its being used on the public highways. . ���������  A strange feature connected .with  the car is, that' although not made  use of on the public highway, the  owner, like owners of all other Gars,  must, take out a license on the first  of March each year,'-'irrespective, of  whether the car is in use or not.
