May Day originated  in  'J 93 8 "under  the auspices  of  , the True Blue- Lodge, and  has been  ��������� successfully carried  on by     that association year'by year,  the proceeds  - being used in aid of'   the True Blue  Orphans'   Home,  an  instittion which  ! is very worthy of the best efforts of  i our citizens.  At the recent ��������� Provincial Grand  Lodge of L.T.B.held in Vancouver,  an address was given by Mr. Branlcin'  (Superintendent of the Boys' Industrial School) in1 which he pointed  out the absolute need of a new True  Blue Home m'X order to    efficiently  carry on the- work    of    caring    for  these orphans:; \  A drive to raise funds for the  building of this home is to be car-  'ried on this .summer. In the1 meantime the support of .forty-seven children has tobe met, ' and the May.  Day funds will-assist. This home is  only in its infancy, and would.be on  a much larger'scale if there wsre  room to accommodate the large  number of children who are unavoidably turned away each week.  This. year, the school, teachers - of  the Abbotsford superior school have  'taken over 'the" training "..of the .children -for' tlie "May. ���������Day*' concert," "jaiul  will have the programme-for the concert entirely in their hands.

BOARD OF TRADE HOLDS  JOINT MEETING MONDA V  KILGARDE  The" boarding house at Kilgarde  was -completely, ..destroyed by. fire  this morning. Fortunately no person was injured; and the furniture  waa saved,  The Roads and Sidewalk Committee of the Abbotsford and District  Board of Trade, held a joint meeting with representatives of the  Sumas and Matsqui Municipalities  on Monday evening for the purpose  of discussing ways and means of  improving the condition of the  main highway in these municipalities on either side of Abbotsford.  Some splendid suggestions were nf.  ferod which will be presented to the  Board at the next regular meeting.  A most pleasant, time-was spent at  the Abbotsford Men's Club on Tuesday evening. Although the attendance was not as large as usual. tlie  various pastimes were heartily entered into,  A meeting of the Board of Directors of the M.-S.-A. Hospital was  held in the Bank of Montreal Chambers on Monday evening. General  business was transacted, and it was  decided to call for tenders for the  supply of meat and groceries for the  hospital for the next three months.  Arrangements were made with a  landscape gardner to view the hospital grounds, with the prospect of  having them nicely laid put and piit  in shape. Tlie grounds were gone  over on Wednesday and it is expected that the work will be commenced  at a very early date.  The Embroidery Club met at the  home of Mrs. W. J.

Complaint, is made that thousands  of skilled Canadian workmen are  emigrating to the United Slate*;  where plenty of work at high wages  is to be had by experienced men,.  ..At the same time business is la.i  guishlng in Canada:   industries    aro  ceasing operations;       factories    are  closing down    and there is    genera!  stagnation.  ' Too much government." says  one; "yes, a highly-paid official is  at your elbow at every turn, telling  what to do, and nobody is doing it;  ��������� taxes are increased to pay the high  costs of administration until they  have become unbearable, and men  are compelled to shut down their  industries and cease development because they cannot get the money  through established channels to  carry on,"  This condition of affairs cannot  continue.  Employers and' manufacturers  cannot continue to'pay taxes if they  cannot earn profits on their investment.  business men cannot afford to pay  cut more than they take in; there  must be income before there can be  outgo; you cannot pour milk out of  an empty bottle nor draw water out  of a dry well.  Just now industries in Western.  Canada are languishing. High taxation is killing the goose"that lays the  golden egg. Instead of our government, both at Ottawa and Victoria,  inaugurating progressive legislation  looking to the fuller development of  . our industries, the. men in control  seem to have no higher conception of  ���������duty than to seek ever new avenues  ,by which more money can be extracted from languishing industries  They will learn after a while that  taxes cannot be paid out of emp:y  safes and tills.  ADVERTISING ALLOWANCES  . -These are dull times in Penticton  says The -Peh'tictan Herald.' Do \vp.  find-, the average merchant saying to  himself, "Well, >I must rustle harder for business. I'll pay' more attention to my advertising to see that  I get a message 'over' to the public  I'll back my advertising up with  window displays. My prices will he  such -as to bring the people to ray  place of business."  No; the diffident merchant says,  "Times are hard. I can't afford to  advertise. I'll just wait till tlie people get more money in their pockets  and then I'll receive my share, of it  in the usual way.' Advertising is an  'expense, so I- will have to cut it out."  Business experts declare that business of the ordinary proportions  should spend two per cent, of its  gross total annually for advertising.  Some businesses spend up to fiv=>  per cent. Mr. Sapiro took up thi--  point when he spoke to the fruit  growers here.  If the business men of Penticton  all spent anything like two per cent  of their gross turnover in telling  the public what to buy and ��������� whe^e  and how. they would aid greatly in  cutting off the flow of money ��������� to  Eaton's and Simpson's and inc*de*i-  tally the fiome town paper would be  twice as big as now and, we hope.  twice, as interesting.  . mti-social ?habil3,'and��������� with suffic-  .out understanding of ' the human  mechanism to ensure its proper -care,  -.hen we shall have progressed con-  jiderably toward the elimination o!'  .nany diseases which are-   now com-  mou.  With'regard to its' 'second object,  he promotion of'humanitarian idcal3  die work of the organisation is a  very practical one. All fees paid and  monies collected by the members,  without any deductions for administration or other expenses, are devor-  <?.d to helping physically defective  children whose parents cannot afford to pay for the necessary corrective treatment.

The hospital was opened in April 1922, and.by  .he first of October had treated .ICi'!  children, nearly all of whom would  have gene on suffering indefinitely  had it not been for the help of the  Junior Red Cross.  Training in intelligent citizenship  is a natural result of membership in  the Junior Red Cross. The officers  of the Brandies are elected .by the  children from among their own number, so that tlioy learn to appreciate,  lhe qualities needed in a leader, as  well as how to speak in public, how-  to conduct their meetings in a business-like way, and how to develop re  sourcefulnoss in the furherancc of  their cause.  . What may be described as a byproduct of Junior Red Cross training  is a sympathetic understanding of  international ideals and problem?,.  By means of'corresponding with foreign Red Cross units, ar through the  pages' of their national magazine,  the children,come into contact Willi  Red Cross'-''members in other lands,  and'it is'not too much to say that the  Junior Red Cross will eventually  prove one of the most important factors, in establishing universal, peacv  as a result-of the manner in which  it fosters and encourages 'tolerance  and sympathy between the' rising  generation of all lands.  ring  merit's  MOUNTAIN CLIMBING  school m'ams intend  climbing,  if so here  bit of  m'ara.s  climbing "ii  Do any of cur  to go mountain  is some advice:  And now I'm offering a  advice.

Throughout the Dominion morn  than 70,000 school children have  joined the Junior Red Cross, the  three main objects are: to promote  health, to promote humanitarian  ideals and to promote good citizenship.  Tn its work for a higher standard  of health, the Society endeavours to  create in the child a "health confidence," and while it does not in  any way interfere with school lessors or s'chopl hours helps the children to put into practise, so that they  become habit, the health rules they  have learnt in their lessons on hygiene.

"After my speech in Edmonton a  few weeks ago W. B. Lanigan, the  freight rate expert of the C. P. R.;  the,man who has been carrying on  this fight, addressed, the-Edmonton  Hoard of Trade. He paid little attention to' freight rates, but he did  make a vicious attack on myself. J  have never, been out to fight the C.  p.

Tlie  sequence of events is interesting. On  January 3 in this room a great meeting was held to launch a new party  to accomplish the very thing Mr.  Lanigan says is the greatest problem in Canada today���������to drive me  out, of public life. Well, I am - no*,  afraid of'anything Mr. Lanigan or  the C. P. R. can do."  Aside from his attack on the C.  P. it., Mr. Oliver's speech was Lakt.n  up with a historic review " of the  freight rate case and illustration of  the present position by the citing  of a scries of striking examples of what he described as the  injustice meted out-to B.

A sense of unfair  .treatment t>y< any section tended to  undermine the' spirit of patriotism,  without-which the nation could not  exist.  To show the inequalities that existed, the premier cited a number of  comparisons of rates out of Fort William'and other Eastern' cities' as  against rate's- out of Vancouver. On  lumber B.

"We have a  right to go directly to the government of Canada and say: 'You are  not keeping the ��������� ��������� treaty in good  faith.'   "  Mr. Oliv ,r went through the  terms -and declared that practically  every one of them had been broken.'  As-a striking'instance he said the original contract was that-B. C. should  contribute land to the C. P. R. in'  proportion to the grants made-by the  Dominion and in these B. C. had its  proprietary ��������� share. In addition B.  C. had been required to give 14,5C0,--  000 acres of its own land, he said.  "The C. P. 'R. "was encouraged as  an . Imperial enterprise. It advertises a line of communication, 14,-  000 miles long from England to  China. Is it not childish that in  this 14,000-mile line necessary to  the whole Empire that the people of  B. C. alone should be charged with  the cost of crossig ; this little 10'*"  miles of mountains?"  Mr. Oliver said that the whole  Dominion had borne the operating-  cost of the Intercolonial for the  people of the Maritime provinces to  have cheaper transportation than  was afforded B. C, although the reasons for the construction of both  railways were identical.  Mr. Oliver also took up the cu^  torris regulation which necessitates  duty to be paid at Vancouver or.  goods shipped by water'from Nova  Scotia because, they are trans-shipped at New York, where there Is  no Canadian customs officer to supervise the trans-shipment. He charged that this- was'a direct violation of  the B. N. A. act, which said that the  products of one province should e.i-  tor another duty free.

All druggists.  VICTORIA, March 13.���������The Saan-  ich ��������� Fruitgrowers Association have  all the co-operation they desire at  present. At a.stormy meeting, held  at Keating, Monday night, they d?-  cided to go their own way as thr-y  have in the "past, and to have nothing to do. with the new co-operative  ���������aovement which has sprung info  ���������ixistence on the mainland. '  Over 250 men and women bravtv.l  i geuine snow and 'rain storm to see  '.ho issue fought out, and it requir;!  hree hours to reach a decision. A  considerable amount of feeling v/a-'  oxhibited at times. Plain speaki?/  was the rule, ancl it appeared on two  occasions n's though the gatherirj  r/ould wind up in a row.  The meeting was called for the  purpose of hearing an address by  Mr. B. Gilland, head of the Palfic  1'orry Growers' Association, a mainland organization, with .which Saan-  ich have co-operated for the past  two years in tho marketing of rhclr  berries. The Saanich berry produc-  ers had already been addressod at a  former mooting by Mr. Boyd Oliver  tho California co-operationist, and  a factional fight was plainly in evidence. Monday night's meeting uas  to have been for members only. Mr.  Oliver. Mr. H. M. Eddio of Chilliwack, and Mr. H. P. Simpson of  Maple Ridgo arrived at the,'place of  meeting", but.were not permitted to  enter for an hour.    <,  Directors and members of the Cor  don Head' Berry Growers' Association had been invited and were present.  When tho meeting was called to  order by Captain J.G.C. Wood, motion was made that Mr. Oliver, ��������� Mr.  Eddie-and Mr. Simpson be allowed to  attend. This was ruled out and an  uproar followed. The chair's ruling  was not sustained. Captain Wood  then said he would resign from the  chair, and finaly Mr. H. H. Crist,  vice-president, took his place.  The latter, after much trouble  managed to have the minutes of the  associatiori's last'' meeting read, all  non-members being' asked to retire.  Then Mr. Oliver and his companions  were admitted. An hour had bcei\  lost in the scrap, but the Saanich association's officials came out on top  and controlled the meeting. They  were open in their charges that an  insiduous attempt was being made  to stampede the meeting and force  Saanich into the ranks of the new  co-operatlonist system.adopted on the  Mainland.  Mr. ,H. E. Tanner, president of the  association for the past six years and  ��������� manager' last year, made an address  counselling against any.change, de  nouncing his "traducer" . and discounting Mr..Oliver's suggestions as  impracticable and totally ' unsuiteu  to conditions in Saanich. He was given a long -hearing and a ���������' vote ��������� of  thanks:  ,After' an hour's wrangling Mr.  Gilland was asked to speak. His remarks were brief. He explained that'  the Pacific ' Berry Growers' Association was a co-operative concern in  which he owned half the stock.  Mr. Gilland denied charges that he  controlled the organiation; The share  holders had subscribed their ��������� own  money," last*'year investing an addi-'  tional 110.000. The'growers dealing with' the association received the  highest returns for their berries ana  last' year $11,000 was paid in dividends.  Mr.' Gilland said he had not been  born in Missouri nor had he studied  law in San Francisco; he grew up.on  a good Canadian farm and thought  he knew fruit. He said.he had not  desired to get into the co-operative  fruit fight, but upon request/had decided to attend the meeting and toll  the story of the Pacific Bei\y Growers' organization.  Mr. Gilland said that the co-opera  tive schemes fostered by Mr; Aaron  Sapiro and Mr. Boyd Oiver had not  been able to save the growers of  California, especially in the handling  of raisins. As for the association he  represented, they did not intend to  support the new co-operative association; the overhead would be too  great. He concluded by saying that  the higher prices paid to the growers of his organization were the bewt  proof of tho efficiency of the methods followed.  A shower of questions was asked  Mr. Gilland. To one he answered  that It was ridiculous to expect that  higher prices would be secured  through the formation of a central  selling ageny.  Mr. Gilland said that the-firm, ol-  Edgott and Gilland did not handle  any consignments. Personally he  was the paid manager of the Pacific  Borrygrowers' Association, but .hpc!  never drawn any cash dividends. Tlis  profits went into improvements.  He said that' there were forty  white growers and about 140 Japanese In the association. Only half a  dozen whites produced berries in <t  oiiahtitv, while about seventy Japan-  o.o" prov/ers were the backbone of the  industry.  In answer to another ouost'on,  Mr. Gilland said that the Japanese  h<id been "hounded to death" to join  the new movement and    he himself  had been asked to beconie' head of.  the now union.' lie offered the'suggestion that "if you-fellows had-done  as much as-wo have you would be  better off." Asio his statis with the  Pacific Berry Growers, be was working for. his salary and not for the  love of the gams, he said.  Mr. Tanner, in an' hour's speech,  reviewed 'the, history of berry growing in this province and-outlined the  growth, of tho industry on Saanich  peninsula. When other growers lincl  entered _:(.he duunct 13. C. Berry  Growers' Association and lost their  money, Saanich' had operated alone  and had always made money. ��������� lie  strongly advocated following the  same course.        ;'  Mr. Tanner, said many were being  swept off their feet by a di:iintere-*.t-  ���������er organizer, who would have no in-'  terest once ho had drawn his $f>0 y  day and departed.,  ' The speaker contended that if Mr.  Oliver had visited Saanich first he  would have followed an entirely different . course in his- \organization  work in this province. Why, should  tlie growers listen to a man who  had never hoed a strawberry in his  life.  A vote of confidence was passed  in the directorate and Capt. -Wood  -.resumed the chair.  Mr. Boyd Oliver was asked to  speak. Ho took tho platform but  said there scorned nothing to be said  since the growers had endorsed the  actions of their officials. He had attended the mooting at the request  of twenty-four growers avIioso', names  were  road   out.  A barrage of questions was- hurled at the organizer, Avho stood his  ground. He complimened Mr. Tanner upon his speech and wished tlie  growers every success, but 'warneO  that the time would come Avhen disaster would be their share    Avith an  aUoii  independent     selling      organl  tied  up  to Japanese growers.  He asked the Saanich growers to  think over the question, of whether  it was right to remain associated  with  the' Japanese concern.  VISCOUNT YOUN'o!i:R  Sir George Younger, Avho, \vhilo  ,he is not making British Premiers,  makes '"beer Avith a bite in it" (so  Iiis advertisements claim), has been  called to his reward. The King has  made him a Viscount. Next to Lloyd  George himself, ' Younger is the  most interesting politician in Br't-  ain. Looking, behaving, dressing,  and apparently thinking like a typical crusted Tory squire, he was  powerful enough to make and break  Lloyd George, to rally the Carlton  Club, and to "put over" Bonar Law.  Where he gets his power and how,  baffles his contemporaries.  Before he became a leader of the  Tories he was a wirepuller for  Unionism in .Scotland. He fought  four forlorn hopes before he entered Parliament for Ayr Burghs in  19 06. He Is' a good platform speaker of a kind, but is'credited with uo  ideas, and his is not the personality  that sAvays croAvds; nor is he good in  debate. His poAver is in the council  chamber and it is there that he  stage-manages' things, playing chess  with politicians, moving great statesmen like puppets.  TAvice he has bested Lloyd George.  The first time Avas over the "coupon" election of 1918, when, by use  of that ingenious device, he packed  Parliament with Tories. The second  Avas' last November Avhen he proved  himself stronger than Birkenh ad  and Austen Chamberlain and kicked the Coalition from poAver.  He is a veritable Napoleon, in an  election. "' From" a club in London in  November he directed every move of  the. Tory campaign; personally sup-,  ervised its propaganda, selected and  rejected candidates, censored speeches and pamphleltf. And three-weeks  before polling he predicted Mr.  Law's majority  within  five  votes.  Yet outwardly he is simply an exquisitely neat, smiling, healthy, and  polite old gentleman of seventy odd,  with a tuffed white moustache, and,  under shaggy brows, twinkling nar-  i'Oav eyes that tell of nothing but fun.  -7��������� OttaAva Journal  LOTS   OF  Ail)   IN  SPRAY CALENDAR  The horticultural branch ' of tho  department of, agriculture, Victoria  has just issued the 1923 spray oal-,  endar, which is somewhat more extensive in its scope than the 1922 e-  dition, and contains information not  only for the control of ' fruit tree  pests, but treats in addition, of control measures for rodent control.

The Basilica at Quebec -which for over.. 300 years has been an.  ornament of the ancient city and which was gutted by firo  recently. It will be rebuilt at once. In the lower right hand  corner is Cardinal Begin's palace seen from the steps of the  monument to Bishop Laval. The palace adjoins the Basilica and  narrowly excaped destruction. In the upper corner is the Chateau  Frontcnac which stands about a block away from the Basilica  and which  is here pictured for the  first  time with  the new towel.  THE fire that destroyed the ancient Basilica at Quebec on the night of December 22nd, destroyed one  of Canada's ancient landmarks that had long years  ago assumed  a place  in the  affections  of the  Cana  irrespective   of  dian people quite  creeds.' To Quebec city the loss is  irreparable, and the Christmas season in that city has been to some extent marred by the disastrous event.  English, French, Catholic and Protestant dAvellers in Quebec Province  alike feel the loss of this historic  old building with its association with  Canada's romantic past. The building itself spoke of other days. Its  architecture was characteristic of  Quebec city, and all who had visited  it carried aAvay a memory of a quaint  old building, richer in historic interest than in architectural beauty, but  none the less of great charm and an  ornament to the city quite in keeping with the  surroundings.  The ancient edifice dated from  1647 and occupied ground in the  vicinity of the first parish church in  /Quebec, Notre Dame de la Re-  couvrance erected by the founder of  Quebec in 1633. The first Mass in  the Basilica was said on Christmas  Day,  1650,   but   it   was   not   until  ,1666 that the church was consecrated by the first Bishop of Quebec. Mifrr. De Laval, and opened for  public worship. It underwent a restoration in 1745. ��������� The-ehurclv suffered considerable damage in 1759 as  a result of the bombardment of the  city by Wolfe's Artillery. Since that  date it has undergone numerous  alterations and additions. Mgr. De  Laval, who died in 1708, was buried  in the crypt of the Basilica, but in  1788 his remains were transferred  to the seminary chapel. Fully 900  persons sleep their last sleep in the  crypt of the cathedral. They include the remains of four Governors  of New Prance, church dignitaries,  high military officers, judges, and  many  other prominent people.       '  The Basilica was one of the finest  edifices of its kind in the Dominion  and contained many very precious  relics of the past as Avell as paintings by some of the leading masters  of the French, Dutch, and Italian'  schools. Many religious treasures,  vestments, ornaments and sacred  vases were also contained in the  Basilica. Some of the stained glass  windows were among th? finest and  most artistic on the American con  tinent, and the interior decorations  which had been completely renewed  recently at a cost of nearly $90,000,  were particularly artistic.  Among the pictures Avere a Saint  Paul by Carlo Maratta, and a Christ  by Van Dyke. The vestments were  probably more gorgeous in adornment than anyAvhere else in America.  Many of them Avere gifts from the  French kings. The church is in the  see of the Archbishop of Quebec.  In 1874 Pope Pius IX. elevated it  to the rank of a Basilica' Minor.  It is, of course, to be expected that  a large and more beautiful Basilica  will arise on the site of the old  building, and that it will continue to  carry the associations with early  French history in Canada. The  tombs of the early governors and  others Avill still remain, and other  historic relics and paintings will  take the place of those lost, so that  except for the building itself the loss  may in some measure be replaced.  It was later announced that most  nf the historic vestments had escaped,  the fiir-.  zaasmamsmm THWl/AfiSuTSli-ORD'FoiSTrf  ABBOTSFORD.

Motor car springs are of the type  known as "leaf." That is to say the  spring is made up of a number <-f  thin leaves, held together, by a boll  or other means. The engineers are  not by any means agreed on the best  type of spring. In fact there is no  other point in design upon which  they differ so drastically. The principal forms of springs in use on modern cars are as follows: Semi-elliptic, three-quarter elliptic,- elliptic,  semi-elliptic cantilever, quarter-el-  transverse,  double semireliptic  never be necessary to disassemble  the part for lubrication. The best  plan is to lubricate-������he spring and  then cover it with one of the new.  spring covers or boots of which thefo  are numbers available. fr's*..  Lubrication of the   bolts   at.^tlitf-  ends ef the spring ia very important.  It should be carried out.once a Week  for the first couple of months   of    a'  car's life and every.two weeks there'-  after.'  Another very important operation  in spring maintenance Is the car������ of  the clips that hold the leaves together. Unless the clips are kept:tight.  the spring tends to move with ' tho  axle and it is quite posaihle that lhe  bolt in the center of the spring may  be broken wih the extra strain put  upon it. With a broken holt ���������. the  center leaf of the spring will carry  the entire load and -breakage j������ almost- certain  to, follow.  ; ���������  In more than-sixty per eent of the  1922 cars, Hotchkias drive |s employed in design.    This means    that  transverse,  triplex which is used on   in addition to carrying the weight of  the car and cushioning . shocks, the  springs have to take the 'propulsion  and pass it ontothe^hodyv.With this  the  Overland,     double       cantilever  combination  semi-elliptic  and   cantilever.  It must be remembered that the  springs are always doing some-work.  When the car is in motion they are  cushioning the shocks of travel over  a more or less uneven surface. The  spring flexes and the shackles move  back and forth and up and down. If  tho leaves are not properly lubricated, if rust has crept in they do not.  slide over each other. If the shackles do not move freely, they are not  able to compensate for the shocks of  travel and naturally enough breakage follows.  Every spring should be lubricated  so that the loaves are free to slide  and the shackles are free to move  and take up the shocks. Once a  year the spring-should be taken apart  and the leaves be thoroughly lubricated. If the spring is provided with  a spring lubricator or oiler,   it   may  added burden put upon the" sprlnpra  it is very important-that" they should  receive the'little attenlon that will  keep them at maximum efficiency all  the time. And we shall end'thfe  brief spring song by summing up the  maintenance golden .rule: for sprin*.  Keep them properly lubricated anl  see that the clips are always tight.  An earnest-preach������m: in Georgia,  who has a custom of telling the Lord  all the news iir Kia'pratytfrs, recently  began a petition for help .against the  progress of wickedness lri his town  with the statement:  .; ''  "O.

This week'one day when  the wind was blowing, some people  thought it was awful.

'  ONE   EVERY   MINUTE  Local Merchant Must GiveWulu^ To  Hold Trade.  It has been said that- there is a  "sucker" born every 'minute." If  this be true, there are-1,4 40 potential customers of- ' the ' mail order  ���������houses ushered into the world every  twenty-four hours and-the-'number  reaches a total of '525,000 "every  year. ���������'���������-���������-  Of course, as Mark Twain remarked regarding reports' of' his "death,  these figures may be exaggerated  but they serve to illustrate the fact  that the mail order houses of the  big cities always������ have new fields to  exploit and' are not ' hampered in  their dealings by the necessity of  pleasing all their old customers.  If the mail order buyer discovers  that he has been "stung" and registers a vigorous kick, it means nothing in the young life of the mail order man. Why should he worry as  long as there are some 99,999^999  other persons in the country,to whom  he may make his alluring appeals?  Ever Get Money Back?  Did anyone ever hear of a mail  order house refunding a customer'*  money If the-customer was not satisfied with his purchase? . Don't all  speak at once, please.  The big mail order -hofcses in tie  cities expect to receive a large number of complaints - from their-customers. They know that much of tlie  goods which they, sell will not come  up to the expectations of the buyers,  whose ideas-as to what-they will receive have been formulated from the  pretty pictures and alluring descriptions given in the catalogues.  The mail'order houses prepare for  this contingency by maintaining  large corps of clerks whose sole duty  it is to answer the letters of ��������� irate  customers. These clerks', or correspondents, as they are*callod,- exercise  all their powers of cajolery in an effort to appease the complaining cuS;  tomers, after an exchange-ofvletter������,  the mail order man has no worry.  His living is not dependent upon  the customer to whom he has already sold goods. "There are as  good fish1 in the sea1 as have-^ ever  been caught," and-ihe turns iiis attention toward the landing of new  fish.  Local Merchant's Field   Limited  Compare the position of the mail  order man with that of the retail  merchant in the small city or town.  The retail merchant has a certain  limited territory from which he  must draw his trade; .All'his business must be done, day ofter day  and year after year, among the  same people. ������������������'.;.  The buyers to whom he can apply  for business number only a few thousand and =at the most, and in some  cases a few hundred. , Unless, ho can  make his'customers'his friends and  bring them back to his store again  he cannot continue In business.  The result is that.he looks beyond  the single sale which ho may be  making ut the time. It Is to his Interest to please every one of his cua-  toniors. It will profit him nothing  to make a big profit off a customer  at one sale If that customer is not  satisfied with his purchase and refuses to come back to his store  again.  From which man can the buyer expect to get the best values, the service, and the best prices In proportion to the quality of the goods sold?  From the-man who must please him  and give him his money's worth in  order to remain in business, or "from  the man who figues that he may never hear from the buyer again, and  that H. will make no great difference  whether he pleases him or not?  Gets It While He Can  The idea upon which the mail order man works is to get the money  while tho getting is good. If the customer is satisfied with the goods  which ho receives, all well and goou.  The mail order -man knows that  the customer is the kind of a man or  woman who -likes to take a' chance  or he wouldn't have sent in his order in the-first place. Therefore he  may figure that tlu customer is  likely to take a Becond chance, even  if the first doe3 not turn out to his  liking.  If the customer has enough spirit  to imike a kick, the trained correspondents in charge of the complaint  department may be able to pacify  him. If they arc not, it doesn't matter much anyway, for there arc millions of others who may be caught  .with the same bait���������there is> one  born every  minute,  you know.  It is well for the consumer to remember to take a chance on the offerings of the mail order house. The  home merchant has something at  stake in every sale that he makes.  ��������� The mail order man has nothing at  sake.  The home merchant ��������� has everything at stake on ��������� the manner in  which he treats' his customers, for  he cannot get others to take their  .places. ' The mail order man has  nothing at stake, for it is to his interest to get all that he can out- of  each sale, knowing that he may never have'another chance a* that particular  customer.

R. A. Hoey, Progressive    Spring  field, Manitoba.    It was of an Irisl  immigrant    who    came  to     CanacL-  "some 14 years ago."      When'-     lr  arrived at Quebec he had not the ne  cessary   $35',  and  evaded  the'immi  gration authorities'. He went to Montreal'and got a job in a tannery    a'  $7 a week.-  In two months he saved  enough to go to Fort Francis in Nev>  Ontario, where he got a position a.  $4 00  a year  and  saved  enough  ��������� ir,  the two years' to take a five-year university  course.  "We- sometimes hear,"- added Mr  Hcey, ''of men living on a meal t  day. This particuar immigrant livec*  for four days on one meal and 1  remember on one occasion he lived  for five days on one meal, and th'  last six weeks of the year in which  he graduated he lived for 10 cents a  day and was denied the privilege o'  writing home to his parents becaas-  he did not have the money for postage. . . . He is today a membe*  of the federal parliament. He is stir-  ���������n his thirties, and by no means v  physical   wreck."  Afterward, when questioned by f  .nress representative, Mr. Hoey de  ���������lared it was "Impossible" for him t/  ���������?ive the name of the immigrant.

BEE  EQUIPMENT  FOR BEGINNERS  OMIT PSALM 58   FROM   PSALTER  LONDON, March 17.���������A revised  psalter has been- printed as a parliamentary paper by order of the  bishops and-, if passed by the national assembly, will be sanctioned as  an alternative version.  . Some   of   the  changes   are   purely,  grammatical   or  literary,   but  others  are designed to tone    down     strong  expressions in the    old    translation  This refers'specially to the so-called  imprecatory passages.  It is proposed to omit altogthei  Psalm 58, and to delete verses from  Psalms 14, 55, 68, 69, 109,137, 140  and  141.  The second list of changes consists of amendments, not omisslom?  to the famous version. A change in  punctuation gives the following verse  a new meaning:  "I will life iip:mine.eyes unto the  hills: from whence cometh mine  help?" The older version rends: "I  will lift up mine eyes unto the hills  from  whence cometh mine help."  The verse "Let them go down  quick Into hell" Is changed to "Let  them go down alive into the pit."  The word "lice" is changed into  "flies." The archaic word "runagates" becomes "rebblous," and the  phrase "He glveth His beloved rest"  is changed to "He gives His Beloved  Sleep."  Some of the amendments made to  secure truer translation do not im-  nrovo literary , quality, but sometimes' revision Is an improvement In  every sense, a3 when "He shall come  down likf* rain 'nto a fleece of wool"  is altered to "He shall come down  as rain upon the tender crass" and in  the change from "the hand of hell"  Equipment does not make a beekeeper; but modern equipment is  necessary to make beekeeping a  success.

(From Fraser Valley Record)  After having outlined his position  as to the proper method of securing  the desired freight. rates for this  province Premier Oliver stated 'we  will proceed along these lines even  if we have to have a provincial election, or even a dominion election.  It does' not appear fair that in a line  of 14,000. miles in length the people  of British Columbia should have to  pay one. and a half times as much  as any other part of Canada, especially when B. C. has paid so much in  land and money towards the construction.'  Mr. Maxwell Smith, the political  sage of Deroche, occupied the chair,  at the meeting which was' held in  the Presbyterian Church, and after  a neat little speech, which showed  that ho was itching again for a political fight, he introduced the speaker,   Mr.  Oliver.  On rising Premier Oliver stated:  "I take this opportunity of answering the criticisms that have been levelled at our government one of too  matters which we .as a vprovincial  government have to deal with."  He was pleased to speak again to  a Mission City audience. He congratulated , the people on the recent  step they had taken in becoming incorporated as a village, and thus control their own affairs. The government wishes you every success in  the undertaking of your municipal  government. His advice was to 'be  sure you are right and then go a-  head^' It was better to make 25 pei  cent, mistakes than to do nothing  at all.  Then he,waded right Into the financial affairs of the province. He  thought it was all a matter of bookkeeping anyway. The province had a  system of bookkeeping that surpassed any other province, or any other part of the world. Manitoba and  Alberta had consulted B. C. Even  ���������the bookkeeping system at t'.ic  capital of the British Empire was no.  superior to that of the province of  B. C  The premier went into the history  of the P. G. E. telling    why it was  that, the present     government    hue:  gone1 on with    construction at   'the  suggestion of    Vancouver    Board oi  Trade, stating also that with the amalgamation of the C. N. R. and G. T  P, under dominion control    it could  not   bo   foreseen    that   the P. G. E  would become as isolated for carrying traffic as it has   become    under  this arrangement. He had hopes how-  over that the future   for the railway  would  be bright with the increase,  coast  business.  The debt of the province was $6G,--  000,000 less the investments of tho  government in    the    soldier    settlement,      conservation      and      othRi  schemes which   the government  liar  invested  in.    Taking these amount?  from   the   above   figures  it  left   th-  national   debt     about     $37,579,000.  But the $60,000,000 did not includr  the  $14,000,000. bonds in the P.  G  E.    "At any rate," said the speaker,  "this provincial debt business h-  all a matter of bookkeeping."  The total taxation of the provinc--  from all sources amounted to $0,07!)  000. Out of this' amount there was.  $3,432,000 for education leaving a  balance of $2;647,,000 for other purposes. He told of the increases in  the various departments. There were  $220,000 in the land department,  $319,000 in the .provincial secretary's office. An ...increase of $140,-  000, there was $46.7,380 for tlu-  mothers' pensions. It could be easily seen that the balance of thi-  amount of taxation .was wanted In  many places.  He justified, the $5,000,000 spent  at the request of the owners of automobiles for the roads. Whether the  expenditure was sound or not the-  government was making the automobile owners pay for it.  .  Did Not Mean-  >*emier  W. B.

John Oliver, premier ot  British Columbia, in which he charged that W. B. Lanigan of the Canadian Pacific had attacked him, Mr.  Lanigan was seen by a reporter here  yesterday. ���������>'  Mr. Lanigan was shown the references to his Edmonton speech and at  once stated that he in no sense attacked Mr. Oliver. Referring to  what had been accomplished by the  pioneers of Canada," said Mr. Lanigan, "what I said was: 'What is our  greatest problem? It is not immigration, it is not taxation, it.is the  'Elimination i from our public life of  'lie man who, to serve selfish ambitions attempts by misrepresentation  by calumny, to tear down those in-  litutions whose success typifies the  ''.ourage, tho sacrifice, the energy,  the thrift and the enterprise of the-  past generation.'

Editor, Abbotsford Post,.'" ,  Ilear Sir:  Kindly publish the following in big type and publish in  next, issue of your paper, and,if any of your .readers would like  another like it I have it here for you:    . . ���������  It is said that the human mind craves always for what  it has not. _ After the object is attained we treat it as a  gift horse" and look it in the mouth, very often expressing dissatisfaction. We do nof'always get what we want, arid are  told that it is a good thing that we do not./" Many people in this'  town are craving for incorporation. It is an old standing joke  revived. The promoters of the first joke have long since left  for other fields while many newcomers to the town in' order to'  attract public attention to themselves revive the old joke again  and again and again.  , Self-government is good. Self-government is the aim and  ambition of all free people. But this aim can be carried too  far, when one considers economy. This paper does not think  that incorporation for Abbotsford could be carried on econom-1  ically for the ratepayers of the town. Too many illustrations of  incorporation in the province are outstanding exampl.es of what  local self-government for small communities has given the  ratepayers. Need we mention Port Coquitlam, Sandon and a  few others. The man or woman who owns property should be  considered at all times. He or she ��������� has come to stay. Not  al* the taxes that are paid in Abbotsford at the present time  wou;d be available were Abbotsford incorporated as a village.  We would not have any more control of our schools than w;e  have at the present time. The provincial authorities, unless '  l/.y special arrangement would not police the town. The present '  government taxation would have to be increased on property to  raise as much taxes as is raised by; the provincial government. ��������� . : ������������������.'���������'  Then why should the resident of three or six months haye  a vote as to whether the town should be incorporated or not?  ���������He will probably not be a resident very long and if he' w"ere  the question of taxation would not interest him very much, as  the majority of the taxes will come off those holding land or  houses, and it is a certainty that land .values would have ' to be  increased. f  . The way the present village act is drawn up is a snare and  a delusion, and if it only after the putting into force of  the act do the people's commissioners really find out what they  can and cannot do. As an example; The village incorporation according to the best interpreters of the act are unable  to insure against accident.. A company might accept the  premium, but. when it came to , pay,, . it would be a different;  question. Suppose Abbotsford were,' incorporated. Suppose an  jrcident happened in the town owing to the present condition  of our sidewalks, and the victim sued the village commissioners  for $5,000 or $10,000; went to law and won his case, would it  nrt make a big hole in. the taxation for the year were payment  enforced? It would go a long way toward crippling the  finances of the village for sometime to come. Take another example: This town is anxious to have street lighting, and it  is a great mistake   that   the. town  : is   not   properly lighted,  of the business men of the  self-pride and convenience in  especially for .the women and  children. Yet it is a well-known fact that the village commissioners could not make a contract, with the lighting company  for/a longer period than one year. Any company installing  light in the town would. have to goto considerable expense '���������  and a short term contract would not look safe for any large exr  ppnditure in the setting, out of .street lights. If you do not  hi lieve this paper ask your representative of the B. C. E.. R., one  of the best lighting companies that does business anywhere  in any community.  These are. only a few points that could be said regarding incorporation for a small community like Abbotsford. But  further Abbotsford is such a small community that it is  not in the interests of it to have any matter divide the people  for 365 days in the year, and we'll say there is no matter that  would so quickly make men take off their coats and scrap as  the opinion as to where the local, taxes should be spent by  loral men.  Does Abbotsford want to join Sumas or Matsqui municipality?  Have we thoroughly gone into that matter? Incorporation with  that object in view might be worth considering.

The first half started with Clayburn on the aggressive and Mission  apparently contented to make occasional attacks which once or twice  had the Clayburn defense in great  disorder and nearly resulted In goals  especially the long drop shot of J.  Galliford's which ca'ifie down on tho  top of the cross-bar. D. Galliford  missed what looked like a sure goal  some five minutes later when HamiV  ton placed a free kick to his toe, biu  ho was not in proper position and  could only drive slowly with his left  foot Tho play ranged from one end  to the other but. aways the Mission  defense was stonewall until Bones  Allard, Clayburn, took a long chance  shot at goal. Goalkeeper Eckardt  took it in proper position1' but in some  manner the twist on the ball caused  It to slip through his hands and trick  led into tho goal. It looked easy  from tho spectators viewpoint but  was just another of those .examples  where the best of goalkeepers miss  them. One thing-imre it was not a  shot which beat Eckardt as he handled everything else during the game  with his oldtimo. ease and judgment,  and on several occasions brought  sighs of relief to the Mission spectators.  The second half started with .Mission putting all they had into a never ceasing attack on the Clayburn  goal and with any kind of luck at all  should have scored several times.  First D. Galliford put a hot shot  over the bar, then Fu2ino missed  one and right after Hughes put one  right past the post. Immediately  after one of the forwards struck  the cross bar. Clayburn defense Svas  greatly demoralized and once-.' or  twice it seemd that they deliberately  bumped the ball as;'far;'off-'.the field  as possible. This brought jeers  from trie onookers and most certainly does not improve the game at all.  Beyond one or two Clayburn rushes  into the Mission territory it might  well be said that Mission had all the  play in the second half.  Right near the finish, Eckardt  came out to the forward line relieved  by Stafford, and Hamilton came up  forward in a desperate effort to tie  the game with one goal, but.'Lady  Luck, denied all efforts and soon the  referees whistle announced the passing of the Pakenham Cup for, another year.  On looking over the local, team,  never has the defense worked.harder or better. Lamont was a tower  of strength In himself and Hamilton  cleared whatever he .attempted to.  The Halfbacks played welL.probab-  ly better in the second half than lu  the firBt. ' The' forward -line was' not  by any means strong but what was  there, surely tried to live up to its  reputation. They sadly missed the  dash of Rex Cox and Lock who both  were sick, and 'tis said that had they  been there, the results might Jiave  been different. We are pleased *o.  see that tho' pressed- to the limit  for players, our boys never have yet  resorted to the importation of outside players' and though they lost  the Pakenham Cup thte year the/  did it with the true Bporting spirit  which always has been prominent in  Mission football  circles'.
