FRIDAY, MARCH. 11, 1921  ���������*$r||3j|i!u<8  $1.00 per Year  SUMAS  COUNCIL  ���������The  decided  hir':!y  national  Sumas     Council     definitely  en Saturday to establish the  debated road on  the    inter-  boundary,   from   Whatcom  'HSAl'I'ltOVH  OF  i.SAM<"  HY   OIATUS  road  west to  Huntingdon;  The. land-owners most Interested  1m;6 undertaken to open the road  HTifi (o build tlie bridge over the  Su-.:.".k, leaving to the council only  the cost  of grading.  Mr. Kichbush, who is purchasing  the Vandcrhoof. ranch, consented to  the project as far as =his interests  permit, and Mr. Nunn', chief inspector  of customs, who had been over the  ground in the week, made no objections from the official standpoi.it.  So the road    will    bo    gazetted    and  built tliis spring. .-,  Tho council has resolved that hi  all future surveys, Iron posts or piping shall ho driven at property corners,, instead" of wood, and that field  notes as well as plans of roads shall  be supplied in duplicate and filed.  Residents along the populous Me--  'Kenzie road, along which runs the  high-power line from Stave Lake to  Bellingham, wish to have the benefit  of the power for. light and other  puposes. Council will take up the  matter with the B. C. E. R. Ry.  The deposit of $100, made"by Mr.  Miller to cover damages done to  roads by his hauling of shingle bolts  was returned to him after some  words warfare between council and  ex-Reeve Pooks, to whom the money  had been paid.  The Kilgard Indians' made a request for the timber of the old  bridge, now made obsolete by the  new fill. Council consented id Lhe  gift, after taking planking required  for other purposes.  A tax rate of 7 mills -was levied  for school purposes, which is the  same as 19 20. but an increase of the  general purpose tax from 12 mita to  1:3 means a 25 per cent advance in  the land burden. A poll tax of $5  per head will be collected from non-  property holders.  Three genial souls met in Abbotsford today and the merry days of tho  past, back to the days of construction of tho C. P. R. were revived by  Messrs S. .Smith, of Dewdncy; Mr. J.  A. Tupper, of Vancouver and Mr. J.  J. Sparrow. It is always interesting  to  hear about construction  days.  A good story was told by one of  them about tlie hiring of a teamster  tor the Cariboo road. He was asked  if he could drive a six-horse team,  and the reply was that he could. But  said tho prospective employer, "Did  you ever up-set a wagon?" "No"'  came the indignant reply. 'Well I  guess you can't have the job.' But  said the story-teller '1 saw the significance of that, question a few days  afterwards on the Cariboo road  when a trailer on rounding a curve  jumped over the bank with a load of  cement. It looked a hopeless case  for the trailer and cement, but that  fellow had evidently had a similar  accident before for it took him less  than half an hour to be on his way  again, with the trailer running snugly behind.' Such stories as these  these old-timers tell.  The monthly meeting of the' local  \V. C. T. U. was held in the Presbyterian church on Tuesday afternoon.  The president, Mrs. \V. W.'Grbal.', pros  ided. There was a large attendance  and a special programme had been  arranged In honor of Francis Wii-  a.rd whose life and work as a great  temperance loader is worthy of  everlasting remembrance. A most,  interesting paper on the life and'  work of Miss Willard was contributed by Mrs. "\V. 1-1. Fadden, which  was highly appreciated and for which  she received' the hearty thanks of  the society.  Considerable discussion arose on  the Moderation Bill now before the  legislature and a strong protest was  voiced against some of its provisions  which took form in the following  lesolution; which was unanimously  passed: That we, the Women's  Christian Temperance Union, of  .Abbotsford, Huntingdon and vicinity  wish to present to you our firm  disapproval of the proposed Moderation Bill, especially the 'proposed  clauses allowing the sale of intoxicating drink in clubs, hotels, or  other public places; and emphatically protest against any measure  which may tend to the intemperate  use of intoxicating liquors.  The secretary was instructed to  forward a copy of this, resolution to  the Hon., the Attorney-General for  his consideration.  , A pleasing duet by Mrs. Hunt and  Mrs.. Mclnnes was contributed.. Mrs.  W,. W. Groat .sang, sweetly the solo,'  "The Promise of Life." Refreshments were served and a social time  was enjoyed. The next meeting will  l:e held on the 5th of April at the  home of Mrs. A. McTnnes.  Capt.

On Wednesday morning  a Mr. Walker, of Victoria,  arrived to take over the  job.  No reason for the abrupt dismissal appears to  be given by the government.  On Wednesday' afternoon a public meeting,  called on short notice, was  held in'the/Board.of Trade  rooms, at which it was decided to ask the Minister  of Public Works to <*'  reason or reasons for  PERSONALS  Mrs.  John Star of    Sumas was a  \ isitor  in  town on Tuesday.

Mr. and Mrs. G. Wreath' lire rejoicing over the birth of a son.  The members of the Presbyterian  Ladies' Aid gave their play entitled  "An Old- Time Ladies' Aid meeting  at Mohawk Cross-Roads" on Wednesday night at Clayburn to a very appreciative audience.  Mrs. R.    Thomas of    Mission was  the guest of Mrs.  McMenemy, while  ! taking part in the play.  I     A St. Patrick Social social will be  j held at the home of Mrs. Fraser on  !

Curtis, the  pioneer berryman of tho Sumas  district, had passed away at Seattle,  where he had gone-to undergo an operation. He had been a resident, of  the Sumas district for about .16 years,  and was noted ��������� for his enterprise  ancl energy. Starting farming in  Sumas, he purchased a brush farm,  cleaned it up and created one of tho  finest farms in the countryside, now  known as tho Bingham property.  Disposing of this farm, he started in  again, and created the present fine  berry farm, which is noted for its  modern improvements. The late Mr.  Curtis did not apply to the council  | for - roads, but constructed them  j himself or spent dollar for dollar for  ; road construction work with the  j municipality. Upon, the morning al  4 o'clock, he was hale and hearty at  70 years of age. He has two sons.  Messrs. N. E. Curtis, and a brother.  Mr. N. E. Curtis, resident iii the  district.

Murphy has resigned his  position as secretary and manager  of the I-Iuntingdon Feed Store, his  other interests in Huntingdon requiring his attention. He lias . done  much towards building up tin's new  business for the farmers, but it is  in good hands as Mr. McPhail has  been taken from Abbotsford to fill  the position as secretary.  The trustees are having trouble  with some parents about the non-attendance at school. The law should  be enforced as it is the duty of the  province to see that every child has  a fair education.  The concert here a few evenings  ago was a grand success. Besides the  local talent friends from Sumas came  over and helped to make the programme more interesting.  Mr. J.

BOARD OF TRADE MEETS  The Board of Trade met on Mon  day in tlie G. W. V. A.    rooms.    Mr. j  Whilchelo    presided in the    absense j  of  the .president,   Mr.   Hill.   A   com-i  munication from Mr. Murrin stating \  that the drive    way to the    delivery  track at the B. C.

Road and other-work ,was author-,  ized on the Owen Thomas road, Sair-'  creek and on the Bowman, Huggard  ar.d Marrah' roads.  The matter of the Barberry roa'd,  which has been hanging fire for some  considerable time, looks as .though  progress will soon be made with the  actual construction work.  The new owners of the Vanderhoof  farm, Mr. D. C.Kickbush and his son,  Mr. F. W. Kickbush, informed the  council that they were out to help in  every possible way and not obstruct it  in carrying out its road plans.  A motion was carried that all work  other than contracts authorized in  ���������1920 ancl at the present time remaining unfinished be cancelled.  The board of works programme,  which was authorized, included the  following work; In ward four, Bowman road to be graded from Yale  road south to N. ID. corner of lot 8f> 5-  A and north from the Yale road to  B. C. IS. R. track. Inwards two and  four, slashing and clearing of the  Marrah from the Lamson road west  to the Watcom road. The engineer  was instructed to make a survey so  that drainage could be made on the  Huggard road so that the Vye road  ditch could be eliminated.  ��������� -Ward 2.���������Authority, was granted  that the Yale road, division fd the old ���������  hall   be  graded.

Faden's application for a  ditch on the Whatcom road through  the Indian reserve, now soldier settlement property, was turned down.  In reference to Mr. William McKay's application sent in in 1!) 1 !l for  payment of $30, he stated that he  was authorized to do the work on the  read to his property to the amount  of a half of his taxes. The work was  done, but the council of the day failed to keep its part of the agreement  and taxes were imposed to the full  amount. This was left for further  enquiry.  Read L. R.

As it stands at the  present the government apparently reserves lhe right to place a government liquor store in a municipal-  ���������ity 'without asking the people about,  it. Municipal elections will in many  instances be fought on whether those;  stores are to remain there or not  Some swell municipal politician who  seeks office will come forward just  before election and say that he will  use his utmost endeavors with the  government to have all liquor stores  in the,municipality-removed; and the  election will likely be fought on that  issue, instead of the question of better roads for the settlors. It will  hide every other issue; and then  when elected, it will be found that  the store or stores go on just  same as ever because the  inent needs the money.  It will however have the tendency  to amount to local option in many  districts.  for o  ouuo  'ew days ago, Mr. Drury's minis-  ' finance .brought down the rev-  and   expenditure statements  in  E.

The  railway  commission  is  to  sit  at the coast at an early, date, and we  believe that a strong delo'gtion of the  business men of the province should  meet this commission and show them  wherein they have acted to the detriment   of   the   development   of     this  province in the raising of the freight-  ami express rates.    Situated as  this  province is to the west of the Dominion and away from tlie large manufacturing concerns of  the  east,  and  further with the growing feeling we  should   patronize   our  own  country's  products, tiiis province is placed in a  peculiar   position   when   bringing   in  machinery for development of our resources,  in   the   matter   of  our  merchants   purchasing  goods   for   distribution to  our people���������and, it  is  the  consumer and  the adventurous  man  who   has   to   pay   the   piper.     In   the  case of new machinery the man, firm  or  corpora-lion   who  is   compelled   to  pay the high freight rates will have  to get more for his product in order  to 'meet the demands on his invested  capital;   the  merchant  is  entitled  to  a  god  profit over and   above all  his  costs as tlie country demands it  for  taxation,  thus he has  to charge  tlie  consumer,   very   often   the  man.    .  levies are to be raised, and there  are few if any    abolutions or reductions  in   previous  taxes.

The nnmsivc stones which  form its foundation have been  mci-  ticed in position by the honest mortar  of  ancient time,   and  the solidifying  influence of antiquity.  Tradition declares that on (lie present site of the  great church the     Imperial    Romans  raised a temple to Apollo. This shrine  of tiie heathen deity is said to have  been    destroyed  by an    earthquake.  Some years later,  during tlie second  century ot the Christian era. a Christian church is said to have been erected by Sebert, a king of the East Six-  ens, who was a    recent    convert    to  Christianity. 1 his    barbarian    potentate in    the    zeal of    his    new-round  religion, dedicated   it  to  "the   honoi  of God aud St. Peter." There is a log  end of which we can still iind some  trace in the ancient chronicles of the  miraculous  appearance   of  St.   Peter  in person who came to bless the new  church.   When   Sebert  died,   his  son  who succeeded him, relapsed info lhe  ancient   idolatry of his  race and  the  new    edifice    was    neglected.-     The  Norsemen who at that tinie came in  out of a    wintry    sea.,    smothered in  their dragon ships and over-ran Kr-g-  land.   cared   nohing  for  churches  o'-  Christianity,   and    the   building   I'^ll  into disuse. Edgar, one of the S.axoii  kings, in later    years    restored    flic  building, but it was.Edward the Con  lessor, the  last but one  of the Saxon  kings, who truly aud  well   oslab-  lislied  Westminster Abbey,  lie Parted the    erection    of    a    magnifmoul  new church which was, however, not  completed   until'after, his  death.  If  was  consecrated     on the    28th    of  December,"    10GC>,   and very    shortly  afterwards the King died.    In     later  years-' Lite  Norman   Kings  continued  the, work and it has    been    added I..:  from time to time until it has become  one of the most    notable    and    raofcc  beautiful  ecclesiastical   buildings   in  Europe. Sonic of the carvf  in  no  interior  is   of  exquisite   and   artistic  .vorkmanship.  lint tiie chief attraction of Westminster Abbey to people of British  blood lies not in the beauty ol its  architecture, but in its peculiar association with every epocli of the  British people. It has long been the  coronation place of tho Kings of  England as well a% their burning  place.

This stone is so  ancient that ils origin has been lost  in tlie darkness of antiquity.

IIis Excellency  the  Governor-General  of Canada  and  the Lieutenant-  Governors   of   various   provinces,   at  his instigation, are attending to this  matter in    tiie     Dominion.    Appeals  have been made through the press  and when the robust Imperialism of  Canada is taken into consideration it  is not at all unlikely they, will fall on  deaf cars.  SIWKLOWKK SILAGE  No ensilage crop is receiving more  comments at the present time in  Canada than sunflowers. This crop  has become    very    popular    on    the  prairies during the last few yuirs  because of the. immense yields obtained in comparison with other  crops and the quality of the ensilage manufactured from it. The results obtained at'Agassis under conditions such as we "had last year, do  not' point to sunflowers as being an  entirely successful crop for this district.  Sunflowers were sown alongside  the corn under exactly' the same  conditions. The land used is a chocolate loam with a gravelly sub-soil. It  had been in pasture the previous  year. Barnyard manure was applied  on the sod in the fall after which  part, of the Held was ploughed  and the remainder left till spring.  The land was well disced and harrowed, before planting the seed, in drills  three feet apart, during the last w-ek  in May. The corn and sunflower  crops were cultivated with the two-  horse .cultivator till the plants were  too. high. They were hoed once and  Die remainder of the cultivating was  doue with the scuffler.  Tho sunflowers were harvested  with the corn binder when- the kernels were in the dough stage. This  was in the middle of September. The  yield of sunflowers was 14 tons 300  pounds per acre as compared to 15  tons 1807 pounds per, acre for the  corn. The abnormal season may have  been the cause of the poor showing  made by the sunflowers. June was  very wet while July and August and  up to the 8th of September were exceptionally dry. The remainder ol  September was so wet that harvesting was done in the rain.  Very little difficulty was -y.per-  ionced in getting the cows to eat the  sunflower silage. The youn cattle  particularly ate it with relish. Nino  two year old heifers were used and a  six-weeks feeding experiment to compare the value of the two silages.  They gave .959 pounds of milk per  cow per day when fed the corn. Al  though the percentage of fat was  slightly more when sunflowers were  fed the difference was not sufficient  to make up for extra quantify of  milk given as'the cows produced .007,  pounds of fat more per cow per day i  when fed corn. Placing the some  wilue pound per pound on the rwo  milages, corn produced the cheaper  nilk and butter.  This is a brief report of our preliminary work with sunflowers. Tho  results so far as they go indicate  the superiority of corn as compared  to sunflowers although the latter  gave such promise that more work  wilh the crop is inevitable.  liAIU)   EASIKEI)   WAGI0S  An artist who was employed to retouch a huge painting in an old  church in Belgium rendered a bill for  $6 7. ,3 0.  ri lie Church Trustees, however,  quired an    itemized    bill,    and  roll, e  following was duly presented, audited and paid.
