C.  \^  ' On , Monday last as John ' Carlson  was driving: home from Abbotsford to  his home on Matsqui Prairie, his horses probably becoming frightened at  something alongside the road, started  to run away, and the driver Mr. Jno.  Carlson was thrown out and instantly  killed. It was probably only, about  five minutes from the time he was  thrown out until he-was picked up.  Medical.aid was summoned, but the  spark- of life had gone.  He was' buried at Hatzic on Wednesday. .    ,  The deceased was a wealthy farmer  of Matsqui and highly thought of by  neighbors .and friends.  ,.- From S. A. Cawley, M.-L.

The Court of  appeals unanimously reserved the decision of the-trial Judge, holding  that the municipal council was not  guilty of misfeasance but of non-feasance only.      Filed.

W. 1-4 of section 2,  township 13 to connect with the Farmers' Line to Lynden.  . Mr. and Mrs. Irvine of Vancouver  were week end. visitors-at the home  of Mr. and Mrs. A. Mains.

A. BATES,  -Neither   for  nor  agin1   the   Government  Editor and Proprietor  FRIDAY, MAY 7th,  1915  Sons and Sires  When that thin kha.ki line toublcd on itself and the Canadian soldiers stood back to back; so that they might i'ace the  l'oe encircling them, they performed deeds of valour which will  lead posterity, to link them up with the'> "thin red line" of the  Crimea, which Kingslake has immortalized in his great history,  writes the editor of the Victoria Week.. Then it was the sires  who refused to be broken by the overwhelming masses of Russian troops.' Now it is the sons, who with the same indomitable  spirit and at the point of the bayonet have driven back the Prussian hordes, who thought they had snatched a victory from un-  seasoned troops. The Canadians, although beset with deadly  shrapnel, and asphyxiating gas, refused to retreat. They took  their last stand, and prepared to yield the last life in defence  of the Empire, and when it seemed that their sacrifice would be  accepted, relief came, and a battered remnant struggled from the  ��������� "jaws of death", as their fathers had struggled in many a conflict for the,,same principles, and for the undying honour of  their country and their Empire. Of Sons and Sires it may with  equal cogency be asked: "When shall their glory fade?" They  have solved a problem which for the British-born needed no solution, and in-doing so, have demonstrated to the world that the  Empire over which the Union Jack floats does in reality consist  of congeries of nations w,ith?one heart and one soul. The glory  .of the action which for Canadians in particular has consecrated  the soil of Flanders, opens the way to the great heart of the  -Motherland, brings us ail home, and gives us for the first time  . in. this war and the first time in history,. an equal ,place with  those whose deeds have won the Empire.  none can pray too much, do too mucli  or give too much.  1 appeal to "farmers to send me  sums from $1 to $50, during the  first week in May.

ADVERTISING AGENCY OR A  MANUFACTURER'S  ENTERPRISE  A committeeof ,the Canadian Manufacturer's Association is endeavoring to raise money to advertise Made-  in-Canada goods.    In. theory the pro-  ��������� posal is excellent but in- practice is  it really wise?- Most Canadian manufacturers take.a pride in their-pro-  . ducts,, put their names on-them and  turn out .something, that is. equal to  ' and in not a few cases superior to  anything of the kind produced in  the world.    Oh the other hand there  national reputation. On the other  hand the newspapers should, as fair  as possible, refuse to insert advertising of any but satisfactorily made  products and by their editorial policy "make, it unprofitable for the  chronjically disreputable manufacturers to stay in business.  A RED CROSS. APPEAL  TO THE FARMERS  Our .country with its Allies, is wag  ,ing a -great, war.-for justice,; for the  protection   of  small  nations  in ��������� the  tne wui-iu.    uu ^.v, v,���������~v,.   enjoyment  of their. rights,  for .con  ..are   some   Canadian   manufacturers I tinned and growing freedom, and for  who unfortunately think itheir-'own' *������������������*���������'* ���������"���������'^"''d r>f *t������ ni'prie-ed word  interests are best served by making  . .the cheapest and. most inferior article  . they can force upon the buying pub-  , lie.    . They, - think  a  slightly ��������� better  immediate  profit, better  than  building up  a  reputation for  high-grade  .goods.  -These, experiences ,and   the  exposures in . connection .with  inferior, .qualities, supplied to all war or-  -ders show that, there .are some Canadian  manufacturers, wko.. ought to  be   behind   the. prison   bars   as   the  Premier suggests.  Even  members  of the  committee  recognize  this .weakness.    Only  the  other day. one of them placed an order amounting to  several  thousand  dollars'with  a  United  States     firm  though the same products are made  by another  member of the  association   in   a   nearby   town.    The   first  manufacturer would' much prefer to  buy  Canadian  make but  he  knows  from costly experience that his neighbor is too indifferent to take pains  and turn .out a satisfactory quality.  A general   campaign, of. advertising Made-in-Canada goods would be  -   paid for largely by the firms who are  making high-grade goods, while the  benefit  of such a general campaign  would be derived chiefly by the men  who are trading on Made-in-Canada  refutation  p.n<\   producinlg   inferior  goods to sell at slightly lower rates.  The committee, of the    Canadian  Manufacturers' Association would be  far better occupied    and could    be  more real good for, Canadian manufacturers if they were to devote their  energies to improving the quality���������  by   moral   and   other   influences���������of  , the goods produced by the scoundrels  who would injure the good name of  the   reputable  Canadian'  manufacturers.  Canadian manufacturers who produce an  article of which they    are  proud, behind;which they will stand,  should    ,let  the  public  know  of  it.  . They should advertise it extensively  .. over'their own names and not pay  .and  be sponsors  for the firms  who  h.ave no care for their own or. .our  the maintenance of its pledged .word  of honor. Much destruction and  desolation are being caused: Lives  are,being lost by the thousand. Canada's first, contingent is now in the  thick of it. Some will fall sick;  many may be wounded \m some will  pay the last full measure of devotion  to their country and its cause.  The Red Cross Society exists to  succor the sick and wounded in war.  The need of Red Cross service is  great and growing greater as the  war goes' on. The price of progress  towards everlasting peace is , very,  very dear. . It cost lives, homes,  health and much besides. Canada's  .part in the process of payment,  through giving for Red Cross work,  is. mercifully light and easy, even  when all have given to the extent of  really feeling it.  The  soldiers and  sailors  pay. the  price extracted by desolating struggle from week to.week.    What'they  paid in blood and did hi" sacrifice a  month ago was not enough for'them.  Shall we say it was enough "for us?  What' they are doing and  suffering  and   achieving   have' put   aside,   for  the time, all their thoughts and plans  for individual welfare,  comfort and'  safety.    They   don't   hesitate  to   establish   precedents.    But   they   are  precedents   of   heroic   sacrifice     for  our country and its cause,   for pur  principles and ideals that they may  be upheld.  Farmers, individually as well as  through their institutes, clubs and  cheese and butter factories, are in a  position to help very greatly. Their  business does not suffer from the  war. Prices of nearly all farm products have gone up. While labor is  scarce there is time to think of the  boys at the front and to send the  Red Cross Society a gift to be spent  for the sick and wounded.  Farmers are generous in sentiment and generous in giving when  their hearts and heads point the way  This is a case where they do so clearly, persuasively and urgently. In  this crisis, in the lives of nations  and in the lives of stricken soldieTs,  The March-number of the United  Empire has just come to hand and a-  mong many very interesting editorials on the war situation is one on  tho part of the air craft of the various nations is playing in this great  struggle, Tho following is an article which we believe will of interest  to our readers:  "One of the surprises of the war  has been the succoss of Britisir aircraft.    There was a general impression  that,  as a  nation,  wc  wore'behind both \ho French and  the Germans in this department, which had  not,  apparently  enjoyed so  large  a  share  of   government  support  as   it  deserved. Probably very few outside  a small body of experts realized the  possiblities of aircraft' in modern war  fare; biit whereas tho Germans placed great reliance on huge dirigibles,  capable  of * carrying  and   dicharging  shells enough to wreck.a .city,, experience seems to show that this type of  airship is comparatively useless. The  dropping.of bombs on a few undefended towns in Norfolk, and half a doz  en other equally inglorious and. futile  episodes,   hardly   seem . justification  for .the.energy and expenditure necessary-for the-building of the much  vaunted fleet of. Zeppelins..The fact  that these big air vessels were, with  few exceptions, only launched in good  weather  during peace times;  rather  obscured their.:dependence, on mete*-  oroligical conditions. The recent fate  of three of .them, wrecked" on-the Dan  ish coast and in the Adriatic, shows  that they-are ..,chiefly .  fair-weather  craft, and one is said to become unmanageable owing to the. weight    of  snow deposited on, her upper surface  These accidents bring the total Zeppelin losses since war began to four  With a possible fifth.    In practice if  appears that the large airship must  fly  too  low,  and therefore presents  too easy a target for air-guns to be  an effective war weapon. On the other hand, the mono-and birPlane types  have been invaluable for reconnaissance purposes, and    probably    this  scouting duty will remain their most  .useful functions.    Here and there a  ducky shot by a. daring airman may  damage some enemy property wliich  is of value, and is otherwise inacces-  .sible,   and. where, massed   attack   is  possible,. ;as-.in the .case of the raids  Jon enemy; coast-: line .(first by thirty-  six British ."aeroplanes,  and then by ���������  forty, supported-by eight French) the  damage should be considerable. The  British aviators have every, reason to  be proud of these two concerted actions, the first of their kind in the  history and-carried out with the loss  of only three pilots.    An even more  striking sight, not alluded to (for obvious  reasons)   in  the .press  at the  time   was the departure of.a much  larger  number  of  military air-craft  to France (where all arrived safely)  the imagination was stirred by the  thought that man has at last accomplished the conquest of the air. The  strict embargo placed on any spectacular flying by the members of the  military and naval flying corps prevented the public from realizing their  existence, but since the war broke  out they have far surpassed the expectations of their friends, and have  administered some sharp surprises to  the enemy."

J.  Wilson, of Vancouver in the church  here on Wednesday evening. A collection was taken in aid of the  church  building fund.  Those Who Stay at Home  Should lie Busy  In time of war, prepare for continued war is equally good advice as  the old saying "In time of peace prepare for war" Now that the Empire  is very much at war and will undoubtedly be so occupied for a long time  it remains for those of us who cannot  go to the front to do all in our power to assist in this,Empire struggle,  assist for the providing for the maintenance of those who play the Empire's part on the battlefield.  We can do much, Our fighting  force is dependent entirely on those  engaged in productive enterprises,  those tilling the soil, operating the  mines "and factories and allied work.  Deprive our armies and navies of  food- for ten days and what would  become of the Empire? If our army  and navy was deprived of ammunition for two days we could look into  the future of darkness and depression. ��������� The Empire must live. It  will be the application of human energy properly directed, in every home  throughout the Empire that will sustain the great structure and make  our armies strong enough well provisioned and su.cicntly equipped  to-win. Every citizen of the Empire  that can make two ears of corn grow  where only one grew before, or better still can make grains grow where  grains never grew before, will." bo doing a real service to the Empire. It  is within the reach of everyone to do  something. The industrious laborer  spending his spare moments in the  cultivation of his own garden lot is  doing something to increase the  world supply of the first necessity,to  sustain his life. Every pound of "edible grain, vegetables, fruits, milk or  meats that is produced by the man  of small' means will do its part in  sustaining life and make -possible a  greater quantity of food stuffs for  export Every pound that we can export means money to keep the machinery of business moving at home.  Every foot of, land that is made productive will help to swell the stream  of export. ��������� Some may think that the  small areas will not count, but all  big things are made up of small parts  the vacant lots and neglected-gardens of our cities, towns and villages  would produce, if well'tilled, sufficient vegetables to feed the entire population, leaving for export the product of the larger areas to the Empire centers of distribution  The people of British Columbia  have done well in response to the  patriotism, and production call, for  this season, greater areas are planted  to food producing plants and greater  efforts are being expended toward the  increase of animal products than ever  "bel'ore. But tKere is still an opportunity for greater increase; many  small areas are lying idle, someono  should make an effort, that all tillable lands should be productive this  Pork, Mutton/ Keef, "Veal, Pork Sausages,  Wieners  ��������� and Balogna always on hand.

The Empire struggle may be a  long one, greater demands will be  made next year than this, more food  stuffs will be demanded by the Motherland and the .Allies than ever,  this year, nextfyear and for years to  come. Canada's prosperity after tho  war will depend upon the exportable  quantities of soil products or their  derivatives.  What can the leaser Valley do if  her people were to make, a big effort  such as the Empire needs at the  present Wine? The cleared land's  of this Valley are capable of producing, sufficient in grains, fruits and  vegetables and animal products to  provide for the needs of her people  and leave a big!-.surplus for export.  Why must oiir coast cities import  grains, meats, dairy products and  fruits from distant parts, to supply  the wants of her people? Why is it  necessary to bring grain from the  East and West? Why bring butter  from New Zealand and eggs from  China, and fruits from the United  States, when we. have the soil,- tho  climate, the tools and the muscle to  produce them here at home? ,All we  need to do is just to exercise the  muscle and do it., By doing so one  performs an Empire service: The  Motherland needs the food, our own  organizations and factories need.the  money.
