From the experience gained in several Canadian cities and towns during the past few years in utilizing vacant lots for garden purposes, the  following methods are suggested for  those who have not yet undertaken this work.  1. An organization should be  formed, on the executive committee  of which are at least, two men or two  women, who are enthusiastic and  will devote some time to looking after the preparation of the land ancl  the laying out of the plots.  2. Owners of vacant land should  cf the portion of the N. E.  1-'J  sec  .1.   L).  plot  for him.

Winter,is nearly past now, and  there are many of us who see its  passing with the impression that it  has been a long time since Old Cold  Snap took so much interest in the.  festivities, and entertainments of the  past season.  German View of  British Empire  Dr. Hans Delbruck, professor of  Modern history at the University of  -Berlin, and editor of the preussische  Jahrbucher, has written an interesting and fairly temperate -article in  this review on "The Position of  England." The following are ox-  tracts from the article:  "England is not only England, but  the centre of gravity of a world Empire stretched over all continents.  There can be no doubt that this war  has given splendid testimony to the  construction-" of the Empire. The  great dominions���������Canada, Australia,  New Zealano>and South Africa���������are  almost independent, ancl are subject to no compulsion from the Mother Country. Even the Republics have  been supplied with a full and free  constitution after a difficult and  sanguinary war. This magnanimity  has justified itself marvellously. All ���������  the daughter lands and even the  Bore lands are fighting for England  oi' their own free will.  "They are, however, laying burdens  on themselves which will be heavily  felt after the war burdens which  will force the question.. . Are the interests of all so identical that the  international policy of the Empire  can be safely entrusted to a majority  of the London parliament? And  not only the Canadians ancl the Australians have fought for England but  also numerous Indian, regiments.  For a long time the Indians have  been demanding consideration ��������� for  their special interests, also autonous  \\vwo government.

Under such circumstances, the true import of the message is lost.  The telephone is built for actual conversation, but to  realize the full benefit the lips must be' close to the  mouthpiece.  ,; The farther away from the,telephone you are, the more  difficult,it is for the other person to hear you.

For Hams, Bacon, Smoked Fish, Labrador Herring and  Salt Cod  Choicest Meats Always on Hand  ROAD BULLETIN  The best drive in the Fraser Valley is the drive from Mission City a-  round the Nicomen Island, a distance  of about 30 miles. liven during the  recent rains the roads were good.  Last summer many people came from  other, parts of the Valley just to drive  over a nice piece of "good road. It is  nearly as level as the famous boulevards around Victoria, over which  American tourists come to take joy  rides. A small portion of this road  requires a little attention at the present time. ;  One of the best roads in the Fraser Valley is the Harris road which  leads from the Huntingdon-Riverside  road to Gifford Hall. If Matsciui had  more of these good roads farm land  would bo worth much more money.  Tlie recent rains have mado all the  roads "not very good," although a  fow flno days would dry thorn up a-  guin.  From Westminster to the Mission  ferry via the Yale road to Abbotsford and the Huntingdon-Riverside  road is just about the same distance  as from Westmister to the ferry over  the Dewdney Trunk road on the  north side of the River. When the  trip can be made via the Falls and  down through Stoelhead to Mission  City the distance, it is claimed will  be much shorter.  The roadmen arc working on the  Dewdney Trunk road between the  limits of the town and the red bridge  with the road grader. The round  trip is made in a day.  HELP THE BELGIANS  The American    members    of    the  , Commission for Relief in Belgian  \ have been asked by the Germans to  remain at their posts, and the work  in Belgian is therefore proceeding  under exactly the same guarantees as  hitherto.  The fact that the Commission for  R-ilief in Belgian continues to receive  large sums from the Allied Governments is in itself enough to prove  that they, who are most interested,  have no reason to believe that the  Germans are directly benefitting.  Furthermore, the Commission have  effected an arrangement with the  British Government on one side and  the German Government on the other  by which an acceptable lane for  Bolgian relief ships between North-  Amsrican ports and, Rotterdam has  been fixed ho as to ensure the continuity of supplies.  Tho Commission for Relief in Belgian is facing to-day a monthly deficit of $3,000,000. Hence It is  more than ever in need of the full  hearted support of the public.
