J  :__s_fc  r  i  I.-  THE  PIONEER  STORE  I Started when nobody had any faith in Abbotsford, still I did business in those days, and to-day I  continue with the same motto, the motto that helped  to build my trade up.

C.  \  ������i" yw������  5tf������������  . ���������, A BHght Future for the Town of Abbotsford  Abbotsford lias to-day just as bright prospeds as any small town in the Fraser Valley, and there is no doubt the future-  is to be a golden one.    With railroads galore crossing or centering in the town there is no reason why Abbotsford should,  not be a railroad lown of considerable importance, both from a railway and a shipping point of view.     To be able to reach  north, south, cast and wesl over competing lines should be an inducement for manufacturing and wholesale business institutioni  Abbotsford as it was two years ago.  locating here, as the shipping facilities of none of the larger'cities of British Columbia afford better opportunities for-securing  cheap railway rales.    There are also available sites at less expense to the purchaser than can be found in any of the coast'  cities.     A shipping centre thus guaranteeing the besT: of railway service, good electric power and- abundance of opportunity  for business and manufacturing sites, should be an inducement to make Abbotsford an important distributing point.  Abbotsford as it was on March 1st., 1910.   *  The land for miles surrounding Abbotsford affords the agriculturist a chance to carry on horticulture, mixed farming and  dairying. And there is plenty of land of just as good soil as there is to be found in the Fraser Valley. Matsqui and Sumas  prairie, adjacent to the town, are too well known to need any boosting as to their productiveness, and the high land to the  west has been found the equal of any for fruit growing.   Abbotsford is the market for this rich distrid.  "Watch Abbotsford Grow" is the slogan; and don't forget it!  Railways Galore!  '   -       jj,    ���������  It is claimed for Abbotsford that the town will have more railways centering in it than any other burg'in the province  The first railway to build through Abbotsford v/as the Canadian Pacific; then came the Great Northern. The construction  of the V., V. & E. will begin shortly���������just as soon as the camps are built and the construction machinery arrives. The B.  C. E. R. to Chilliwack is now under way, with the rails laid as far as Abbotsford and the line men following up about eight  miles behind them. It is expeded that the cars will be running by October 1st. Notwithstanding the fact that the Canadian Northern is "surveying along the Fraser the report is current that running privileges are to be obtained from the V��������� V.  6c E. from Hope to the coast. When all these lines are in operation through Abbotsford the transportation facilities should  be of the best.  I  &W^il^^  ffltfaur*^ TWO  THE ABBOTSFORD  POST,   ���������   ABBOTSFORD, B. C.

"The King h dead !" "Long 1 vc  the  King I"  Tlie Bivi.h Empire! mourns the  death of His Majesty King Edward  VIJ. one of tlie, most gallant spirits of an illustrious royal line. Yet  the "King's government must go  on" The duties of state are ever  very pressing. The herald who an  nounces with one breth, "The King  is dead, with tlie next proclaims,  "Long live the King" Long live  King   George  VI  The provincial government has  begun the year's work in the town  and it looks as if the people here  are to receive this year their full  returns from taxes paid. The member for the. district Mr. Gawloy is  to be congratulated on the amount  of money at his disposal to spend  in   the   district.   o   CHASING THE RAINBOW  A town where a man lives and  makes his money should be good  enough for him to invest his earn  ings and profits.   Th's does not a-  ways appear to be the rule.   In every town in the interior of ths province the people have contracted  the coast real estate gambling ma-  cia, and the game is being played  lo the limit.   Every month thousands of dollars are being sent out  of the city to keep up monthly pay  ments.      In order to get the best  value for your money invest in Ab  botsford real  estate.   It may not  make a millionare of you right a-  way quick but it is sure to prove  a safe investment and will surely'  give  good  returns.       Abbotsf</rci  is bound to forge ahead.  Now is the time to get in or, the  ground floor.  The heading which we expected  for our first issue arrived in time  for this issue and it is hoped tho  readers of the Post will appreciate  the effort made to have a heading  for the paper that will always be  an   advertisement   to   the   district  no matter where the paper may go  Realizing  that the   fruit  i/ndustry  will  form  a   greater  part  of  the  occupation of the surrounding district in the near future due prominence has been given to that. The  dairying industry has been carried  on by the early and present set-  tLers with success   Ave. saw no reason why the cow should be forgotten.   Excellent   shipping   facilities-  with  cheap  power,    electric    and  water, should be  inducements for-  manufaetur'nt  institution thus the  factory building on the heading.  As promised in our last issue we  are able to give the two pictures  as promised. Since Mr. Murray  took the picture of Abbotsford on  March 1st.a number of new buildings have been erected, and there  are   *more .following.  T/he following, is taken from the  News of New Westminster. The  blind may lead the blind, but not-  not even Laurier's visit accompanied by the whole cabinet, can blind  ���������all the people of the prairie provin  ces. The News might allow the  Conservatives a few of the! new-  settlers in any esbse, just to hate  variety, wliich is idways the spice  of life.       Read the following;  "The 'thousands of Americana w ho have decided to make  their.hornles in the We3t will ally  thernselves to one political party  or the other, and every reason ex-  isf.s why their support should be  ���������given to the government which  O'pened up the great West, provided transportation, school accommodation, and preserves law and  order. These men will feel they  owe   a debt   of   gratitude   to   the  Send the Post to your frienMs in the  Liberal government, and the very  best political move that could  be  Mr. R. J.

Many  kinds of seeds and 'plants may be  started in the open. Have the  ground-well prepared and enriched  Dig deeply, remove all stones and  rubbish and pulverize the soil  thoroughly. .Before starting to ,  plant or sow, have the polt or debt,  raked level. 'Be rreat in all that  yuu do. Owing,to the ear iness ol  the season this year, much of thi.5  work has  been doue.already.  The soil for vegetables should be  broken finely and to the depth uf  tiie spade. Work in a liberal application of barnyard manure, and.  wood ashes also, if they arc available.  Onions, peas spinach and other  hardy vegetables may ,bc planted  as scon as the ground s fit. Leave"  cucumber, corn, squash and the  tender kinds until all danger of  frost is passed. Sow the seeds in  moist or freshly stirred soil. i)'-  not- plant  too  deeply. ���������  Flowers that have been started  in the house should not be trans-  transplanted to the open ground  without first being hardened off.  Gradually introduce the plants to  the changed conditions by placing  them out doors each day for a few  hours. Seedlings thac are crowded  in the boxes or in hotbeds should  be transplanted to other boxes oi  to coid frames. Cannas, colms,  crotons, alternantheras and plants  of similar nature should not by  planted otit until the first of June  When' the ground is ready sow  seeds of nasturtiums, balsam and  portulaca, sweet peas and other  hardy annuals. Do not sow the  seed thickly. Hardy annuals  should be thinned before they get  crowded.  Giadioli may Le planted towards,  the end of the month. Place the  bulbs three or four ii.ee*; dee..- anC  about six or eight inches apart in  row's or clumps. Dah ias also may  be planted late in May, but it is  better to leave them until June.  Plant   out   perennials   and  biennials  that  were .wintered  in  cold  frames.   Divide o'.d ciumps of perennials   and   when     transplanting  remove all weeds in order to save  further trouble.   Oid pereiin'al borders   that   are   renovated   in     this  manner will lose  little in effect ii  the spaces are filled with annualo  this year, and until the permanent  plants once more require the room  Plan   to   cover   with      climbing-  plants,  bare  places  onhouse,  ver  anddah,   fences  and   outbuildings.  Morning glories, sweet peas, nas-  tuertiums, wi.d cucumbers and     a  great'many other things are useful  One of the best v nes is Cobea scan  deus.   This may be started in the  house from seed or plants may be  purchased from florists.  When the spring bulbs are done  flowering, it is best if possible to _  allow the tops to wither and die  before taking up the bulbs. It it  is necessary totake them earlier,  however, the bulbs should be lifted  and heeled-in just below the  ground in some place out of the  way and ieft there to July.  \  pEA  GENERAL MERCHANTS  ���������'-rn ii1 i- t-iimi wrnfuMfctiwiii  i m_n.i ntitTTrrinin ������> imrir-fnmt iVJiATiW"-*-niii������������������tMtfyit*iTiiMMiiii������~M  Only first class  Groceries,  Dry Goods,.  .Flour, Feed, and Grain  Boots and Shoes  Kept in stock  ^EssendeneAve., ABBOTSFORD, B.C.  <J?i*J GXKXSBBZXEm SBSSSfi^SSMAS) ffiiSKE!'* <EBaJ53aBISHB������ eEi GSZEEKHMZXO  fit  littJttrmn.\aczv*KAn<ztm*m.Tc,n-n> r������������-u-w*.*M������i ������H.Ttiran-MWivvi(N.  i atnottimmii'tiwmvnuttM'i  VBBNRtBZBBBBBl SBfa.  9   [i PATRONIZE" HOME INDUSTRY   ' g  (Jj ������������3.-ag������������l.o������������uniCT������^lCl������l.i������lHf������..������������^������.������.^.MM-.������~��������� .    .���������.    ,���������,���������,!_ |���������|,..,M_. ��������� ,   ,,, <j gj.  riamess. ana oa  m������niM-iiiiiHUfiuiinuiw>a������  Mr. Farmer, when you require a new Set of Harness,-a new Saddle, 'Saddlery 'Hardware, or anything  in the Horse Clothing, call around and see  ���������1tauil'_k H _rf*MU>3fc-     MfMKKH    fi������**ft?������u  and you will be suited.

The record automobile run between Calgary and Edmonton was  made: on Saturday, April 16, in a  Hupmobile- The machine made  the trip in ten hours and fifteen  minutes. Mr. Lincoln the driver'  left Calgary at 4 ;50 on Saturdaya  morning and arrived at Edmonton  at 3:05, and the distance is 205 ml3  by road. The amount of gasoline  that was used was nine ^gallons.  So important has the manufacture of taxicabs become in France  that it is now regarded as a regular product by all makers. There  is almost a famine in taxicabs at  the present time owing to the heavy  demand  for  them  throughout  the continent.  When putting a car in commission and occasionally, say every  month or two, the interval depending on the amount of use the  car is given, the hub caps should  be thoroughly cleaned -out, all the  grease and verdigris removed, after \vh!ch the caps shou'd be rep ac  ed. It is also well to clean out  the hubs and bearings, washing  them thoroughly with gasoline so  that dirst and grit will be dislodged. When this has been done the  moving parts should again be lubricated and hub caps put back in  place, and the car can be driven  without fear of trouble from improperly lubricated axles.  The fencing of the school ground  is nearing completion.   The      tA'o  and one half acres of playground-  will be ample  for some years  to  come. ,  BUY in Abbotsford,  NOW!  5___a___^&g^ w������ twftvwt^  (' ' \  !';1  Hi  i  SISS������������������tfK four  THfE ABBOTSFORD POST,   , ABBOTSFORD, B..C.  ���������  All kinds of fresh-meats'in. season.,- .,   _���������;'���������  ONLY At   MEATS  KEPT,|N  STOCK  ���������   v ��������� < We deliver the goods'  *   *"i* '" ' *v.*  A.
