One went to Mr. N. Machell  of Matseiui, and the other to Mr.  William Haptonstall, of Hatzic Prairie.  The one which Mr. Machell purchased started plowing quite a bit  faster than the best span of four-  year old colts that ever walked in  front of a plow.  But the one slated to be used on  Hatzic Prairie balked and after trying all schemes to get it.to work, Mr.  Hargitt sent to the coast for an expert on tractors, who spent Monday  and part of Tuesday locating and fixing the machine. It was partly taken  apart and in the inside were .found a  considerable lot of steel shavings and  other things, which would prevent  the machine from working. On  Tuesday afternoon the tractor was  taken to Hatzic and it is understood  works well.  This latter was one of ihe large  number recently shipped to Rc-gina.  Out of eighty taken apart in the  Ford works twelve were found to be  tampered with in the shops.  Mt. Lehman Notes  The ladies of Mt. Lehman donated  a case of eggs to be sold tor the  Prisoners of War fund. The sum of  $16 was realized, and in a letter  from headquarters it was stated that  'any other such donations would be  very welcome.

All remember when this road  was sure a 'Jonah' for all chose wlio  drove cars, and it is the change which  has taken the fancy of tlie Good  Roads editor.  Last year the road was rounded off  with the grader in the spring and  although very little attention was  given lo it during the summer tho  road shed the winter's rain with tlie  exception of one place which has this  year been put in fair shape and will  be better when tlie Nicomen Island  rock is put on later.

PAGE TWO  THE ABBOTSFORD POST  THE ABBOTSFORD POST  Published Every Friday'  J. A. BATES; Editor and Proprietor  FRIDAY, MAY 17, 1918  The Oliver government won. the recent by-  election' in Chilliwack, but it took the whole  cabinet, almost, to explain, why the government candidate should, be elected. But the  people of Chilliwack had not in view the good  of the Oliver parly at heart, they believed it  was in'their interest to have cabinet representation,, and no matter what government had  been in power a' cabinet minister could have  been elected in the same way.  But the funny part of it was that the opposite side told the leader of the opposition  to keep away if he wanted the elecetion won.  He did as he- was told, but the electorate of  Chilliwack missed some good- sport thereby.  The Conservatives of this province will never  gain victory until they get together and build  up a little confidence in their leader, the same  as the Liberals have recently done. We do  not suppose for one moment that the rank and  file of the Liberal party have any more confidence in their leader than the Conservatives'  in theirs, but they do not let everybody know  all about it.  And that is the secret of the victory.  While belated  farmers are    still    sowing  wheat fields in Minnesota and the Northwest.  the Minneapolis Journal reminds ������������������������������������$ ���������h;"-i the  wheat harvest has already begun in oid Mexico, where the farmers of the  Coahuila district, beyond the Rio Grande, are gathering  the greatest crop  the  district  has  produced  . for many years..   The American harvest will  begin across the line within a few days, per  haps by May 15, and from that date on the  harvest will be progressively continuous, advancing from south to north, until Western  Canada reaps the last American harvest in  September.    And    what^   tremendous    issues  hang upon the gathering of a bumper crop!  Early in next month Oklahama will send its  binders to the field, Kansas will follow later  in June, Nebraska, Minnesota and South  Dakota in July and August, with Eastern  Canada close upon their heels. Across the  continent the harvest will proceed uytt.il the  far northern.provinces of Canada have their  grain safely housed in September.  There is life for the warriors and life for  the home folks in the coming harvest. Everywhere in the world food is scarce, and at a  premium. Germany, in its frantic efforts to  conquer the world has destroyed as much of  its food as it could reach on the high seas. In  France are perhaps 5,000,000 soldiers of the  allied nations who rely upon us for the  strength' and courage to defend civilization,  and among them are the soldiers of our own  flesh and blood, separated by a great ocean  from their sustenance, reliant upon us at  home for its production, and upon the American navy for its safe carriage to them.  The wheat harvest this year carries new  importance as the very life of our struggle  with the German menace, ancl it is a mark of  the friendship of providence that it begins  with signs of bounty.���������Seattle P.-I.  Canada faces new conditions and new problems. We do no: know when peace will  come nor what, will follow. It may be r.hat the  period of readjustment will be long and difficult. Possibly there is no sound ground for  apprehension or anxiety. It is certain, however, that we will adopt wise measures of social, industrial and national policy according  as we have knowledge of conditions in other  countries and sympathetic, comprehensive,  adequate understanding of the bases of our  own industrial fabric, the dangers to which it  may be f.xposed and the defences wh'ch must  be matmaimd.  The objects of the Canadian Industrial 1'le-  cor.struetion Association are (1) to maintain  industrial stability and (2) to secure wise consideration and prudent treatment of problems  of Reconstruction. Parliament will legislate  more Wisely and the public will judge'measures, of legislation more fairly if accurate  knowledge is afforded of actual conditions in  the country and the probable effects of new  legislation. Investigation will be made into  the conditions of various industries, the markets which they must supply, the wages paid to  labor as compared with the wages paid in competitive industries elsewhere, and the relative  charges for transportation. It will endeavor  to assist in the extension and development of  technical and general education. It will  maintain a sympathetic atittude towards projects of land settlement, organizations to extend co-operaion among rural products and  plans to improve rural conditions. Tt will give  its  suport  to  movements���������whether directed  by leaders of Labor or Employers of Labor���������  which aim at establishing relations between  Labor and Capital; and recognizing the equal  rights of citizenship which women, have acquired it will seek to improve their position  in industry and co-operate as far as opportunity offers with women's organizations in investigating and improving conditions which  ��������� pecu'larly affect the domestic, social and industrial welfare of women.   . ...   .  If a politician wishes to know by infallible  test whether he will ever make a statesman let  him attempt to solve the Irish Home Rule  question. . If he can make three ccrrect guesses out of five as to what the political situation  in Ireland will be in the course of a single  week his political career is assured.  - Irish politics are the most facinating study  in the world. They follow ho known laws  and not even the wisdom of a Gladstone or a  Salisbury can forecast for a month possible  developments. Look at the present imbroglio for instance/says the Vancouver World.  Mere is a country wherein one-third of the  people are quite content with their presont  government and their Parliament. Here is  another third of the people who want their  own government and their own Parliament  with power to tax the first mentioned third  because it happens to have most of the money.  Ancl here ist he final third who seek absolute  independence of the British empire and are  willing to call in. German help to secure it.  This country is very .prosperous. Two-thirds  of it has not done its bit in the war. One-  third of it has���������but is quite ready for conscription nevertheless. The next third refuses  u;v-scription at any price and on the issue goes  over bodily to the final third which - would  shoot down British soldiers rather than be  compelled to shoot down Germam Then there  is the additional complication of the Church's  influence.  Again, the seQtion that welcomes conscription will not have Home Rule; the section that  hates conscription asks for such extended  Home Rule that the authority of the Imperial  Parliament would vanish altogether; and the  final section will take nothing but a republic.  Mr. Lloyd George has to give Home Rule  to some party in Ireland. One party does hot  want it, being satisfied as it is; another wants  .more than Mr. Lloyd George can give; and the  final third wants nothing but the overthrow of  British government altogether.    So there you  are.  What is a poor but honest British statesman  to do? So far what he has done is to postpone  conscription in spUe of the vital need of men;  to draft' a Home Rule Bill which will give  Dominion autonomy to Ireland as part of a  scheme of Federal. Home Rule for tho whole  United Kingdom; and to meet Ulster's objections by giving his power to veto legislation  specifically applying to it.  It looks like a workable scheme. It might  meet the present situation. But the point is  will it meet the situation that will have supervened in Ireland a month or six weeks he/ice  when the measure becomes law?  For some months there has been a good deal of  speculation in the English press on the possibility of  revolution, ancl on tic outlook for responsible parliamentary government in Germany. Only a combination of military defeat and starvation seems to me  likely to cause a violent upheaval that would likely  affect the foundation of the political structure. Every  man and woman are so fitted into the Germa.i system that it can collapse only as a whole Herr  Schiedemaun. the leader of the majority Socialists,  whose recent utterai.ees have evoked expressions c������  strong disapproval from non-German Socialists ev-  erywhere said practically the same thing in July  1917.

These three essentials make the telephone  what it is. In few lines does development and improvement take place more constantly than in the telephone  business, and every improvement tends toward a better  utility for the use of the public.  Service depends on organization and both in the measure that the needs of the community are recognized. Tlie  British Columbia Telephone Company being owned and  managed by British Columbians, close touch is always had  with requirements in all parts of the territory. The aim  is to have the telephone as serviceable as possible; to always meet what demand may be made upon it.  BRITISH COLUMBIA TELEPHONE Co.  Limited  RIGHT IN OUR MIDST  One of the most exasperating pests  in automobilism is that big little man  ���������the "expert" driver, observes a  writer in the current issue of American Motorist. Continuing, the writer says:  "Speaking of him, Ave do not think  of the painstaking mechanic avIio, by  dint of study and experience gained  in actual practice, familiarizes himself Avith motor cars until he is able,  to- obtain from them the maximum  service and Avith a minimum necessity for repair and adjustment; him  Ave Avould call the 'expert motorist'.  But Ave have in mind the felloAv avIio  is an expert 'driver', nothing else.  "It is almost needless to say that  since the exhibition of stunts in driving is apt to be an expensive habit,  tho expert driver is rarely lound a-  tnong the owners. Usually he has  graduated from the washstand in a  garage, Avhile sometimes he is a speci  men of the so-called, natural-born  mechanic���������a species that neither mechanical progress nor scientific training seems to have been able to exterminate.  "It is the expert driver avIio . is  chiefly responsible for the animosity  'of the pedestrian against the motorist. It is he who scares old ladies  into hysterics while bearing.down upon them Avith a rush, only to clap on  his brakes Avith a bang and bring his  car to a stop half an inch from the  pedestrian's  shin.  "If you Avant to Avatch him, stand  in front of a busy garage for a Avhile  and you will have ample opportunity  to observe his doings. He will come  out of the garage at full tilt, clear  the opposite curb by ripping the  steering gear around, with all his  might, and disappear around the  next corner in similar fashion. Wheni  he returns he Avill rush down the  block at a speed of fifty miles an  hour, throw on his brakes some eight  or ten feet from the stopping point,  and bring his car to a halt almost  Avithin its own length; all of which  of course, looks very clever to the  expert driver and costs money for repairs and excessive deterioration to  the OAvner. This sort of a driver is  the one to whom an open muffler is  music in the ears; who imagines himself a miniature Oldfleld who would  have broken every record had he only  been given a chance.  "As to climbing a hill on high  gear every time, trust your expert  driver to do it. Very often he will  accomplish it, too, even though the  motor knock its head off, in utter oblivion of the fact that the lower gear  ratios are made for hill climbing.  "If you do not drive your car  yourself, beware of the expert driver,  or at least nip his ambitions early in  the procedings."  TKE   SKIRTED   FOUR   HUNDRED.

The Woman's Institute met on  Thursday at the home of Mrs. T. F.

Mrs. Hart, convener of the Red  Triangle Fund committee, Avas unable to get back from Vancouver in  time for the meeting, but the other  members of this executive Mesdames  P^adden, McMurphy and Campbell reported that owing to the energetic  manner in Avhich Mrs. Ha.it had  Avorked in this committee, some  splendid advertising had been accomplished for the fund. The auto parade Avas entirely successful, and it  Avas only at the earnest request of the  Abbotsford branch that the social  arranged for Monday evening was  cancelled in order that the Abbotsford reception of Bishop de Pencier,  fixed for the same time, mignt not  suffer. The Huntingdon ladies had  taken their baskets over there and  brought back the sum of $8.25 from  the sale of them. This will go to  SAvell the amount of the Huntingdon  committee's collection.  A subject calling for much discussion was the formation of a girls'  branch of the Institute, in accordance  Avith rules drawn-up by the tiepart-  , ment of. agriculture. It avus showr.  lout the class of young girls novv  meeting Aveekly at Mrs. Lax urn's for  knitting lessons were doing remarkably Avell, and perhaps it Avould be a  pity to do any thing to interfei'D with  that.

It vvou'loe  beiter to,let the girls "stick co tl.eir  knitting" than bother Avith the technicalities of organization at present.  The Cranbrook Institute had circularized a number of resolutions  drawn up by them, dealing with marriage law and. inheritance, the gist of  them being -a desire to amend the  laws so that the wife stands equal to  inheritance and divorce.  These resolutions Avere endorsed  and will go to. the Hon. Dr. King and  Mrs. Ralph Smith Avith a petition  that the statutes be amended.  Mrs. W. I-I. Fadden, convener of  the Red Cross work, Avished to resign  from that office ,.. though not from  the work. The committee is pledged  to do so much Avork per month,  which if not done by the members,  seems to be incumbent on uie convener, who cannot find time to complete it. The Institute prevailed upon  Mrs. Fadden to continue to act a little longer until the present obligations could be disposed of.  Sixteen parcels of comforts for sixteen local boys at the front had been  sent off during t he month. The collection of the day Avas scheduled for  the Prisoners of War, but in vieAV of  the Y.M.C.A. campaign iioav on it  was arranged to give the. $3.13 collected to t he latter fund, ami send  next month's purse to the Prisoners.  Proposals Avere made to have a  celebration of some kind on May 2 4,  to be arranged locally. This may take  the form of a picnic Avith amusements for the school children and  probably some intertainment.  Mrs. D. A. Straiton, always an energetic Avorker, has left for Vancouver. The secretary Avas instructed to  send a letter of appreciation oi' hor  assistance to the Institute and regret,  at  her departure.  A number of copies of Mrs. Spof-  ford's "Civics for Women'' were, on  hand for sale, eight of the members  buying the book for home study. Two  , dollars ��������� Avas    received ' from   Mr.   F.  fFooks for the Red Cross work, and  the little Red Cross contribution box  at the postoffice again yielded its  mite���������28 cents this month. The amount of Red Cross work done could  not be reported at this meeting, as  the members had not all sent in.  Mr. W. L. tBlatchford, chairman of  the lo'c'al committee of the Bed Triangle Fund, reports a very satisfactory collection. Starting out with an  endeavor to get $350, the treasurer  finds himself with $4t>0 on his hanls.  No doubt the central executive will  be able to handle the extra amount.  THE  PRESS   OF  CANADA  PROVINCIAL ITEMS OF INTEREST  Despite War Number of Newspapers Largely Increased  That the press of Canada is"iri"a  particularly healthy condition is  shown by the. 1918 Edition of the  Canadian Newspaper Directory, just  issued by A. McKim, Limited, Advertising Agency, of Montreal, Toronto, Winnipeg and London, Eng.  There are 1490 publications of all  kinds noAV being issued in Canada  as against 1381 in 1917���������an increase  of 109.

Since the firm of A. McKim, Limited, Canada's oldest Advertising A-  gency, issued its first Canadian Newspaper. Directory, ^ 27: years ago, they  have seen the birth of most of the  publications listed therein, and are  in a position to have accurate knowledge of the field in Avhich they and  the Canadian press have ���������grown up.  The present day condition of the  publishing business'" of Canada enables the Dominion to boast the largest reading public -in the . world in  proportion to population. ,'"  ' Besides giving full details "in regard to every neAvspaper and other  publication issued in Canada, the McKim Directory sIioavs in concise form  the business possibilities of any sec- i  lion of the Dominion. Its Gazetteer  contains.a .wealth of general information regarding /every toAvn and city  where a publication is issued, giving  populations, county seats, railroads  and Avaterways touching each place,  telegraph, express and banking facilities. With the aid of its supplementary maps, it locates every newspaper town, in Canada, and the descriptions are so written that these  towns may readily be visualized by  the reader in relation to the territory  in Avhich- they are situated and the  entire Dominion.  Never before Avas the need ancl  value of up-to-date information about  the Canadian market so essential/  and the 191.8 Edition of the Canad-1  ian NeAvspaper Directory comes to us  at a time when such facts as it contains arein great demand by the far-  sighted business men of the Country.  The book itself is Avell bound, durable and neat, it is indispensable to  the advertisers of Canada, ancl is  well suited to every office desk and  business library in the Dominion.

The Ferndale school has beer, opened Avith Miss Kathleen Apps as tho  teacher.  Who. opens your mail in the ofilce?  This question applies more particularly to large manufacturers, wholesalers,; and retailers Avho: get a large  volume':'.of-mail.'which is opened by  perhaps, the oflice boy; but the idea  back of the query applies to all the  business men that get mail.  Not long ago a manufacturer  whose goods are nationally .known  lost an advertising opportunity that  was ��������� worth thousands to him Avhich  was presented in a circular destroyed  by the office boy avIio opened the  mail of the concern question. " On  the other hand, the head of a Chicago publishing house, whose time is  just as: valuable as the manufacturer's, opens every piece of mail coming into his office. Several times  he has congratulated himself that he  does not take the 'trouble every day  to go through his mail.  Ho believes that clerks and office  boys are not necessarily incompetent or careless, but that they can't  attain the executive's point of view.  For instance a clerk can not know  that an ordinary-looking postal card  noting a slight reduction in the price  of a-certain iron pipe might mean the  saving of thousands of. dollars to the  manufacturer  of  plumbing  supplies.  Tho Avay to the Avaste basket is  easy for the circular or letter Avhicli  falls into the hands of the office boy.  Tho bump of destructiveness is usually very Avell developed in the  young man avIio dusts your desk ancl  fills your ink wells. Not only this,  but his judgment is hardly to be relied upon. Give orders for the boy  to bring all the morning's mail in to  your desk, or to distribute it among  your department heads���������'no matter  how many bushels of mail there are  It is the only safe Avay, the only profitable way.���������The Glover's Review.  wis���������-���������: -���������T~*$*"���������"~- :   '       *-,������(  f^Sr  JON  Funeral Director  AGENT   FOR   HEADSTONES  Phone Comifctf'sR.

TO SEND THREE MILLION  BUSHELS WHEAT TO BELGIUM  A Washington despatch says: Food  shipments to the civilian'populations  of the allied countries Avill be suspended for ten days to move three million bushels of grain to the Belgians,  Avho are declared to be in desperate  straits.  A part of the Avheat Avill go to the  populations in the German occupied  territory of Northern France. Ihe decision   to  concentrate    on  the shipment of this grain was made following the receipt of urgent cablegrams  from  the Belgian Relief Comission's  representative in Brussels.     One    of  the cables said:   "Provided all ship-  menfs now en route arrive and provided  an equal  distribution  between  all parts of the country Belgium and  Northern  France     will   be     without  bread  from exotic    grains    for    2 0  days."
