Over a  month ago the school trustees passed  a resolution to combine the two superior schools at Maple Ridge and  remove the Haney one thither. At  die same time there" v/as a vacancy  on the Board through the resignation  of Trustee Anderson. Haney resenting the removal of her superior school  to nearer her rival metropolis raised  Cain and made it an issue at the election, that a superior school and the  prospective high school shall be at  Haney. TVi cation was fought bu-  terly and Haney came out victorious  by 31 votes. The candidates were  Trustee Goffin and Mr. Rayner of  Hammond. The figures were, Haney  Goffin 160, Hammond 2, "Whonnock  IS, total 180: Rayner, Hammond 133  Haney S, Whonnock S, total 149.  Last Saturday the new Board met  and Trustee Colliu was hardly sworn  in than ho boldlyl assaulted the resolution of the removal of Haney Superior school and demanded the rescinding. Trustee Davidson the author of the resolution was absent but  Trustee Secretary Plait the seconder  was present and although ultimately  the discussion of tlie matter was  shelved for Mr. Davidson's presence,  the secretary declined to admit the  mandate claimed by Mr. Goffin. Tlie  voice of the municipality had not  been voiced at three polling stations  Haney, Hammond and Whonnock. He  defended his action in supporting th^  removal (after thc summer holidays)  o ntlio ground of tlie advantage to  the pupils, observing that thc Maple  Ridge school had double the number  of pupils attending the Haney institution.

The little church was crowded to  the,doors to hear the last words to be  spoken of one who was everybody's  friend, and one of the most hospitable  of ladies, Beautiful words told of  the useful and practical life led by  the deceased lady, who leaves besides many friends, a husband, one  daughter, Mrs. Mouldey of Port Co-  ciuitlam (the first white girl to be  born here after the naming of Mission  City), four boys, Tom, Charlie, Frank  and George, all of whom reside on  the farm at Matsqui, except Tom who  is in Alberta, and unable to attend  the funeral.  Mr. and Mrs. Bradner came to Mission City some twenty-nine years ago  and after residing here for some time  settled on a ranch of which the present station of Bradner on the B. C. E.  11. was the centre. Here he hewed  out a bush farm, but after the coming  of the tram line, the place was sold  and Mr. and Mrs Bradner came to reside on the Morton property at Mission, living there until a few years  ago, when they moved to Matsqui.  The deceased lady was - born at  Gorey, Wexford County, Ireland, and  after her marriage came to Canada  residing at Port Arthur for severa  years before coming to British Columbia.  Many tokens of regard and respect  had been-sent by friends and acquaintances. The following were the pallbearers: .Messrs H. S. Phiuncy, J. C  Michio, Geo. Baines, ���������. Bradner, G.  Bernard and A.  Gustafson,  Tho Accident  The accident which resulted in thc  death of Mrs. Tom Bradner happened  on Sunday afternoon last, when she  and her son Charlie were hurrying a-  long to catch the last ferry. Evidently the brakes had been put on so  that the car skidded and the driver  lost control of his Ford, which went  against the sidewalk and turned over.    Mrs. Bradner who was under thc  car received such a shock that, when  taken from under the car life was extinct. Young Mr. !hv,uier escape-1  with very liftlo bodily injury.

John Oliver has made ri ._ reply to  tlie soldier and quietness lor the t/me being  has reigned, but the end is notyet.rjbt assured.  The reply is not a clever one on ihe part erf  our-hoary headed premier. Tlie soldiers can  now afford'to bide their time, soon ��������� the soldier's  friends���������and they  arc legion.  Although an Englishman, and the lather ol  four grown-up' sons we- do' not believe our  pr.aneir was represented on the 15..'id of battle.' There is a reason. We do i;ot believe  he loves the returned soldier any more than  he loved his fatherland. -He- loves solf better  and now the-soldiers have reason to know it.  it is hard to think: tliaLt our premier lovetn.  not the returned'soldier���������he sees not the pride  of family victory in the eyes of any of his boys.  It may be that -money: counts more;with him  than his own native land'.  The. government of which our preir icr is the  head has-shown, however,, a w.ealme is that it  will be hard to explain on  the hustings of the*-  next election.  The automobile is on eof the grea\-. it; factors  in enabling the boy to see that it's a aiatter of  intelligence to remain with a sure tiling������������������the  farm. Fifteen or twenty miles or evt n. further  from the- town or city is nothing to' the man  who has-a car, and the day is con.-.nig when  the motor will be considered one of the most  important of farm implements.  There is not much gambling about agriculture. Conditions may not be right in every  district for successful farming but there are  less failures with the farmer than any other  occupation. All gain a certain amount of  social and financial pressure and most much  happiness.  Conditions, are better now for success than  they were twenty or thirty years ago, but if.'  is up to our government to do still more to  enable the farmer to succeed. We'want good'  roads to keep pace with the other improvements that pertain to the present df-.y.

The third anniversary of  the inauguration of the movement was; on  March 1, made the occasion for the'  issuing by the National War Savings  Committee of   a    statement   setting  forth the work done since the latter '  end of February, 1916, as well.as-an-.,  nouncing plans for the future. From  the statement the following has been  reproduced: :  It is important that it should be,.  understood that the raising of money.','  for the State was not the main object;..'  for which the National War Savings-  Committee was established.    The pri- .  mary object of the Committee was to.  secure for the nation all the benefits  which would accrue from the success-,  ful establishment of a safe convenient  and profitable method of investment,  for people of small    means,    rather  than the more narrow object of merely raising money to pay for the war. -  It is in  this  direction  that  lies, the  important social aspect of the mov?.-"  mc-iit which promises to becomo    of  permanent benefit to the wage-tamer..

After discussing the question of the  best method of having a complete  and serviceable highway to Vancouver it was decided by the club that  the Trunk road running through the  Steelhoad be accepted as theroad on  'which  government money  should be  expended'so as it can be-put in good  repair.  . It was pointed out that this.route  is several .miles shorter tnan any  oilier route now in use or surveyed;  that when put in good shape will bo  the bP-Jt known route for the truck  service that will become a very large  factor in developing this district when  the C.

We find that all the old systems* of government and all motheds of all kinds arc being  attacked. Military,, government,as it was in  Corn������any has undoubtedly' been overthrown  for all time to come. The absolute monarchy  of'Russia, has been overthrown. Democratic  government is being attacked by the Reds.  The-maii who works and saves, using-both his  brawn arid brain"to that eiid of comfortable  circumstances in this life is being attacked as  a capitalist; our banking'system, our school  system, our methods of doing business buying  in the lowest market and selling at a profit,  our manner, of. dealing with: the man who  lives by his daily wage alone, and the thcusr  and and one other, systems and customs are',  all being attacked by some one. And in the  midst, of,all "this which., is the best policy .'for:  a man to pursue Is" ah open' question .with, a  great many. The ..old. saying; of Lord "Nelson,  is just as'good, ad vice as any... "England, expects'every man; to do his-duty" Determine  what that' duty is 'then proceed.

' '  ' A' most excellent' resolution;;was passed by  the Matsqui council;.at It's last.meeting and  it" is hoped that" some good 'will follow the  effort bent in the direction of securing some  kind of a traffic bridge across he Fraser.* This  question is ..as old as the district; and nas  'been 'discussed, from every'angle by an sorts,  of organizations and meetings. So far the  only success,has been a ferry across the Pra- '  se'r at this'point. ���������'  The ferry service is so far as it goes most  excellent, but however excellent it does not;  meet the demands of the people1, which are  that it should, be possible to cross the Fraser  river from either the Matsqui or the Mission  side at any hour of the twenty-four, and tlie  only way that this can ' be done is    over   a  ' Since the establishment of the present ferry system communication between the north  ' and the -south side of the Fraser river lias  increased to the #rcat advantage locally ot  both Matsqui and'Mission City, and there is  no reason'oh earth why.a . bridge service  should not be of much greater value to all  local business and also to the through trai-  fic as well.' At the very best a ferry no matter  how serviceable it may be, it.is only a wake-  shvft during the growing time of a community' Tlie day b:tr come that a bridge service  ia urgently needed and in endorsing the actr  ion  of 'the' 'Matsqui council' it must    be re-  ' -membered .'that,' the . ferry . service,    for    tho  hours that it" is o": duty is appreciated by all.  .

It might  ���������be" all right-to adopt the, name Mission.and  drop the "City", veie it not fdr'the fact that  Mission is not sufficiently, definite enough as  there are other piaces'in the province by that  .name': and' the people here.are not in the missionary work...

One practical experiment,  lias already been made but, not to the'  council's, satisfaction.  Tenders have been called for the  cutting down of the Larmon road,  with the result that only one tender  of $ 1 200 has been secured. The gcv-  ��������� eminent will give $500 to assist in  this -work but it is thought that day  work "would be cheaper than that con  tract.' The councillors-will'v'sit (he  hill and decide on what Js the best  way to haudio the situation.  ' Wm. Bates served notice   o.n    the  council on Monday last that after the  10th''ho will hold that body reopon-  slble for damage done to his crops  by flooding. Not that the council are  actively doing him  hurt but    their  j read come3 between him and a neighbor who-is.    This man has allowed  his sloughs to become -silted up by  cc.ttle tramping, through     them,    by  1 throwing in brush and slashing fences  /across them,-he says.- Consequently  , when a freshet arises the water backs  up and seven acres of Bates' land is  Hooded.' His solicitors'tell him that  iiis redress is against- the council and  'the, council, against the obstructing  owner. The provincial controller .of,  hvater rights wrote Bates, that the  ���������case would bo taken up by that department on receipt of lull particulars. : The council accepted the burden of responsibility and instructed  the,clerk to communicate at- unce  with, the controller, ��������� also to notify  the.obstructionist of- this action. Due  haste will bo made so that the present crops will not be injured.   .  Messrs Phillips and Whito sought  assurance from the council that a recent: appropriation made for the  Whitoroad-.be spent where it ia most  needed. ' Councillor Melander informed, them that tlie'opinion,of the  interested parties would be taken and  the work done just where they most  desired it. This seems to be in clown  tho hill and so grading it to prcyout  washouts. As this is now an important, .mail route it.must.be kept in  ���������goo .dcondition.  A' doputation consisting partly of  returned soldiers were introduced by  O. L. Smith. Their property lo on  a subdivision, accepted by tho council soven years'iugo. Thc arrangs-  roga'rding the roads appears not! to be  found on--the books nor the record  of'the payment of $500 claimed to  have been handed over. The council-  will'' investigate.   .  Coun. Phirincy will have the culvert repaired--under the C.. P. R.  track where'it . crosses    the .Valley  road. '  Dominion Government District Engineer. Worsfold will see to the repairing of the wharf at the liver,  where new planking is required.  The department of lands at Ottawa  is interested in the council's proposal 'that they-undertake the seeding  of logged off-lands.    The question is  now under consideration of ihe grazing commissioner. Mr. F. 13. Stacey  M. P., also communicated his atten-  ; tion to' this idea, and that too of the  ; need .for correction of the erosion of  the Matsqui dykes by the Fraser.  The following important , motion  was passed: That this- council ask  the provincial government to build  approaches, and ,make arrangements'  with tho ,C. P. R. lo plank the Mission bridge for general trafllc instead  of the ferry, and that the clerk be  instructed to ask the,.endorsement of,  adjoining municipalities -and the  Boards of Trade of Vancouver, New  "Westminster,. Mission City and Ab-  ���������botsford and the Auto Clubs and ask  each of these to endorse this and forward the endorsement to the Minister,  of Works, Victoria.  ' i-'rofJt-sharing is often heard of in  connection with "our industries,' our a  large   farm' operated   on : this   b^isis  .-sounds    altogether   novel.    '-Suo'v", *  ��������� scheme  has,  however,   been   carried  <on with great   success   in South era  ���������Alberta for a number of years.      I:  lis a hobby of C.S.Noble, who in 191.5  made a reputation all over the >vov!;i  by harvesting what was -claimed  to  ���������'be a record crop of wheat on  1000  fl.cres; the average yield" per acre on  tnis ar'i-.a  working out at we!l  over  fifty bushels to the acre.     This if a  record  that, has  not   been  equalled  anywhere outside of;Alberta, though  It is claimed that it was surpassed  /by another farmer in Alberta in that  year of recerd grain crops.-  j    Mr. Noble h*s devoted considerable  istudy bo the subject of profit-shar-  !in-g.     His belief is that every worker  ���������is entitled to a share of the wealth  he creates, and In the Noble Foundation, the name under which his company is incorporated., he and his associates have tried to put this theory  Into practice.     This company owns  and operates   farm property, stores,  elevators  to  the  value of over two  million dollars.  ��������� Any employee who has been long  enough with the company to prove  his value may become a participant  In the scheme and the method'of acquiring stock is very simple. The  employee is required to pay for ten  per cent, of his stock in cash and  give a note for the balance at eight  per cent, interest. He then makes  monthly payments of a certain  amount to pay off the note, to-which  also his dividends are credited. In  this manner his stock Is paid off fairly rapidly.  Needless to say, many of the employees avail themselves of the op-  (1) Oats grow well in Alberta  (2) An Alberta wheat fisid in  portunity ' to become shareholders.  Last year they drew a dividend of  fifteen per cent, on their investment  despite the fact that last seas:n was  generally considered a dry one. In  1910 a dividend of twenty-five per  cent was paid, and in addition a considerable sum was placed in the reserve fund.  The results of the operations of  this company are a striking example  of the productive capacity of the soil  in Southern Alberta-and the kind of  crops,that may be expected If careful and proper farming methods are  followed.

Many  employees have availed themselves  of tho opportunity to invest their  savings in the company and are  drawing dividends on their stock.  Mr, Noble has proved that a large,  ."arm can be c-pevated successfully in'  '.-ood years and bad under good management, and the future of his profit-sharing scheme will be watched  with great interest.
