Almost promptly at , 1:30- Mr. N.  Hill rang the school bell    to attract  the attention of those   'gathered"1 on  . the grounds and extended the greet-  - ings for' a pleasant play day. / # ���������  Miss Canada, Miss'King, "the May  Queen arid her maids soon appeared'  on the school'steps..and,the flag' wa-s  raised by Miss Canada? Vhich indic-  . aled that the celebration was open.  The Band then rendered in excellent  form, "The. Maple Leaf Forever."  Reeve "McCallum    was,,,, pleased 'to,  see so many present to." e'njoy .another May .Day.- -The first~-May* Day was-  " -celebrated fin 'l^l'^ama^etrch-'ahnual  , festivity had" shown the boys arid-girls,  * that the .'grown-ups    of    Abbotsford  wished them to enjoy themselves to  the fullest extent.  Ac 2 p. m., headed by the Abbotsford Land, a precession was formed  in the school grounds, followed by  the parade of-floats and autos, then  the school children and their parents.  Going out of the north gate reaching  Pine Street, along to Gladys Avenue, east along Hazel Street to Cyril  - Street, thence south to Essendene  avenue. "Passing along, Essendeae  it was absolutely necessary that a  freight train should block the -way  for a i'ew minutes. Reaching the  head of "Essendene avenue the procession returned to the crossing at  Oscar Street where a very pretty ceremony took place in the ' dedication-  of the G. W. V. A. flag pole to ''Our  Fallen Heroes.'. ��������� .-   Here also took place the judging  of the autos in the parade, Mr. King's  car securing first ' place', with Dr.  Swift's as second place and the American car, in which - the Goddess of  Liberty rode, being highly commend-1  ed. " - '  After the crowd had been    placed ;  in as advantageous    a    position    as j  possible,' Capt.   Whitchelo,  president  of the G. W. V. A. on    behalf of the  organization in a   few   well   chosen  words explained why the G. W. V. A.  had raised the excellent flag pole on  a Maltese Cross of cement. He wished each one present to remember  that the flag pole had a message to  each person,.reminding them of tho  fallen heroes who had died for their  country. ��������� The world should be better  for the war and it was up to each  one. Capt. Baldwin then raised the  flag. .  Rev. Mr. Priest then    spoke _a few  words.  ,'L'The flag pole is' permanent at  Essendene Avenue at the Oscar street  crossing.  ��������� The children" arid ' their parents,  filling-the theatre to~ almost capacity,  crowned the May Queen for 1922.  The ceremony was a most impressive  one and. the programme carried out  was enjoyed by all.  The- retiring queen   addressed' her  subjects as follows:  -:. Greeting to   the-' citizens    of   the  .Realm of the-May. Queen.    You are  gathfii'edj'liere' "today ii'^jacifordafrce?  with "our" regular cu3tqni jto ' witness".  -the "coronation-of--your Queen of May  for the-coming year.'   I am pleased to'  see here today so many present from  the surrounding    communities,    and  heartily welcome them to   our   celebration.  My reign has been one of gladness  and peace, during which many kind  vfavors have been showered on me,  which shall be treasured in my memory. The past year has seen many  improvements in the district over  which I have reigned as Queen of  May. Principal among 'these has  been the erection of the lovely Mats-  qui-Sumas-Abbotsford Hospital,"  which is proving a valuable asset to  the community.  As your retiring May Queen I  take the opportunity of expressing  my thanks to you all for the Loyal  support accorded me dui'ing the year  of my reign. I desire to pay a special, tribute to the little citizens of  the throne who so generously gave of  their time and talent to make his day  a success. I now take great pleasure  in crowning Freda Nelson as May-  Queen, and commend~to your tender  care the subjects of our throne.  Queen Freda, I salute you! May  your reign be one of gladness and  joy. ,   .     -  ���������    ���������  Following      is      Queen      Freda's  CAPTAIN  T.  DINSMORE.

BATES, Editor and Proprietor  FRIDAY,  MAY   20,   1022  Elsewhere will be found a shc.t  article dated from Victoria, 13. C.  which tells of young ladies in England asking' about prospective husbands in our province. They say  there are too many young women in  England and not enough young men.  Our statistical editor a few days ago  was just counting up how many  young ladies would be left if all thu  young men in town were married !o  a young lady of this district unci it  was found that if all the eligible  young men were to go to Abbotsford  for a licence, that the young lai'.y  from England or any other country  would stand a poor chance with tho  rest of them. But, there' is always  this hope for any,young ladles that  come from Bradford, England, that  a new face in the community might  take the boy's eye. It used to ho  hinted during the war that the returned soldiers when they came bac-c  settled down' would' be given the advantage over those who did not go  to the war, by allowing them to have  two wives, but ' it is noticed now  that' the .most of those of them who  got married are satisfied with on a  good lady of the house. , We would  say that our'young men have hard  enough dodging, the young women  who are already here without importing any more pretty faces.  At all , the annual elections of  school trustees throughout the  Fraser Valley and in many other  parts'of the province there    has beoi.  ' heard-the complaint-   that education  ' was costing too much considering the  real education that the children were  receiving". 'The educational tendency  of the present day is no better than  the tendency along other lines���������avoid  hard work as much as possible. All  are guilty.,' The present system is  modelled to suit the present , day.  There are,however many things tha<  could be eliminated that would not  hurt the boy or girl mentally, morally or physically. . The child of today  - leaving school is .hardly fit to ' take  'his place in life without a lot of fixing. It is -demanded, of the young  man or young woman that he or she  should be. able to reason for himself  or herself, How can they with the  present system.. The habit of drifting  is learned at school, and is continued  throughout life.  Education is costing too much.  'Parents .say.so. -Taxpayers say so."  The government complains and is not  doing as much; accordingly for the  .different parts'-of. the,province today  as it was some years ago. Years agoL  in this-province a district was not allowed a second ..teacher .-until" such  time as the attendance averaged 50  pupils in regular attendance.    Today  '30 pupils in an ungraded school,is con  sidered too much.and 40 in an ungraded school is.'������hought enough for  one teacher.'' There must be a reason.    We .cannot say that the teaclf-  'ers are less capable; we cannot.say  that the,*.boys: and girls are less intelligent,' but we can say with considerable" degree of certainty that  there arje too many "subjects taught,  considering the length of    the school  told that this way would be hard and  rough, that his mode of " living for  some time would be of the most primitive kind, that he would,have to d<������;  and dig, chop arid chop, his way to  his first earnings from his own soil.  Be he a: married man it should be  conveyed that sho would * have to  share similiar conditions and help  her male to bring about the/transformation. ' <���������  All these things should    be made  clean-.    The   v\\  'lit    man    wants    the  truth. Nothing less will suit, him. Me  who cannot.stand plain facts will  not come to Canada. If lie did come  without having the information ho  would be useless. Those who take  the step will take it with their eyes  open. They can make good in this  country and do the .work that will bo  ro(|iiired of (hem just as the clerk  and the none-too-robust city dweller  endured more hardship and privation  in France than would ever be found  in the virgin lands of Canada. But  they must-be told and come without  illusions.���������Vernon News.  When thc Premier of ��������� Manitoba  makes the point that ho is a farm  or he calls' attention to the fact that-  farmer premiers are quite common in  Canada. Leaders of the Ontario and  Alberta, government are farmers both  politically and by occupation. Tho  premiers of Manitoba and British  Columbia are Liberals in politics and  farmers by occupation.

PIi-iNTLVU  /rim  FLOWS K  GAKDK.V  The annual delight to flower.loy-.  ers of planting the garden is about  to be experienced as spring is her-}  Often the desire to plant, however, its  so strong that certain kinds are ;-'.et  out in the garden long before they  s'hbuld be with the result that many-  plants are ruined by late spring  frosts. There is no advantage, ana  great dangers in planting geraniums,-  for instance, before the last week of  May, and tender plants are almost  certain to be killed.      .  In planting the flower garden it  should always be kept in ' mind that,  green grass is one of the most pleasing sights about a garden as flowers  without grass to set them off may bo  compared with'a picture without a  frame. The flower- garden then  should be so planned that the grass  will not be much cut up by .flover  beds. See that the places for flowers'  are along, the boundaries, in corners,  or close to the house,' leaving as  much grass a's possible in an unbroken area.  All herbaceous^perennials' that ai-e'  going to . be planted this spring  should be'set out as soon as possible  now as the more    growth    they ha.ve  clula or Pol.

FIELD  The .feverish excitement accompanying a hotly-contested 'election,  with the hectic election night " ot  blaring.,bands and hihxrkms crowds  has been strikingly reproduced in  "One a Minute," Douglas MacLeans'  new Paramount comedy, which comes  to the Abbotsford -Theatre" on Saturday, June 3rd.  The outstanding feature of these  night scenes is the manner in which,  they have been'.photographed;"'-to attain the,shadowy bizarre effect of a  victorious  torchlight procession.  Bert-Cann, one of Thomas H.  luce's ablest cinematographers secured the picturesque contrasting  lights and shadows. Mr. Cann utiiiz-  -ed- ni'Ore than a hundred powerful  twin'arc lamps in lighting the streets  in which .the'scenes were photographed-, and improved the 'results by using a novel and original method of  producing moving shadows which  heighten the effect.  An /unusually strong company of  players headed by Marion DeBeck.  appears' in support qf Mr. MaeLean.  Jack Nelson was the director.  When Lord Shaughnessy hints that  his country will be foolish-to expect  that Great Britain can send us all  the agriculturists we need he is hitting the nail on the head, says tiie  Victoria " Times. The Motherland  cannot spare us a very large portion  of her population that is trained in  rural pursuits.". She has no surplus  of this cjass. On that account it will  bo necessary for Canada to cast about  in the countries of Northern Europe  ���������in Holland, Norway, Sweden, Den  mark, as well in the Slavonic countries and Hungary���������besides the  United States, for many of her new  ���������settlers.  It does not follow that theie  should be the least cessation of our  campaign'1* to attract desirable 'emigrants from the.British Istes. But it  does emphasize the necessity of a  programme that will appeal to the  man who knows little* about rural  life. Heljmust be told the truth  about.conditions in this country. The  idea that! he can cross the Atlantic  and hop'into instant opulence should  be completely dispelled. The average farmer is not gulled by the fantastic yarn which' the immigration  shark is wont to spin. His own  training instinctively informs him  that farming is farming all the world  over and.more so in this country.

Tho chicks are healthy, bred  from heavy, clean parents.  2. The chicks are free from lice.  The setting hen should be dusted before setting and again before coming  off the nest with the chicks.  3. The hen makes a good mother;  this' can be ascertained during incubation, if a hen'proves clumsy and  cross-she should not be used to  mother.the chicks.  4. Statable arrangements are  made for broody coops, i'hese may  be, just large enough for one hen  and her family or a small colony  house that will hold-several hens will  do. They should be repaired and dhir  infected, placed in a sheltered location upon new ground.  5.

The brooder must -have plenty  of ventilation without draughts. Too  many of the box like brooders sold  are only death traps.*.    -' ,  3.'Not more, than 50"   chicks    to  any small brooder.'  t   4.

Feed little and often, this is  more important in artificial than in  natural, for the first week or two a  hungry chick is a healthy chick.  6. The essentials in artificial  brooding may be - summed up in  healthy chicks to start with, clean  brooders with plenty of fresh air  and no draughts, fed little and often,  and fresh ground upon which they  should be allowed as'soon ^as they can  be - let out.���������Experimental Farms  note.

Prices' of/ the new sizes will be:  Scotch whisky $2,80; 2-year-old rye  $2.00,  All parties    in    parliament   agree  that the present freight    rates    are  chiefly responsible for business stagnation,  depressing industry, agriculture and practically every phase    of  our commercial life.    With such an  understanding the    action of-parlia-.  ment  deliberately    delaying    action  must be borne primarily by the Government, and as    accessories to tho  act, Hon. T. A. Caverar   and the Progressives assisted.    For   two    years   .  the Railway Commission    has ' been  engaged in an exhaustive inquiry   into this'problem, but cannot give   effect to this inquiry until a    decision  is .reached on the    Crows" Nest Pass  agreement.       This  agreement  dates .  from 1898, when, in,return'  for    as-  sistance in building the    Crows "Nest "'  fjass Railway, the    Canadian Pacific  agreed to specific rates    on    certain;  basic    commodities.      To    save    the  railway from disaster, in 1919    this v  agreement was abrogated    for three -'  years, and rates increased.    The period of abrogation expires on July 7, /  within a few weeks.      The . Government, instead of making a decision,  proposed referring the problem to    a  parliamentary  committee    which   is  "simply a "transparent evasion- of res- ���������  ponsibility and an apparent plan    to  .  continue the abrogation.      What has   -.  taken the specialists on the Railway  Commission for two ye.ars, a parliamentary  committee,    ill-informed'   or  uninformed, is asked to do in    a few  weeks.    This was pointed out- by Mr.  Meighen, who moved    that the Government decide on the    Crows' Nest  Pass agreemnt to permit of action by  the  Railway  Commission, review  qf  the Railway Commission's judgment  by parliament, and the ' accomplishment of freight rate revision    before  the expiry of the    Crows' Nest abrogation on July 7.    He    warned    the  Government that they    were   simply  playing into the hands    of    the railways, and also that the old    Government assumed responsibility    for .ib-  rogratirig the    agreement,    and    thrf  new Government must deal with this  Problem at once.  The Government and Mr. Crevav  and his followers voted this dow^.  and Mr. Crerar also voted a reference to the committee. He also declared against the Railway Commission acting with the result.  (a) The Government evades"    responsibility and  knowingly continues    -  high freight rates for another year'.  (b) Mr. Crerar supported the  Government in this favoritism to 'the  railways and injury to the public. He  is an open partner in thc deal.  (c) The result is a great victory  for the railways and the public will  continue to pay heavy tolls to them.  All agreed in parliament that present freight rates checked a busines.-i  revival. Mr. Meiglien and his followers voted for action at once to .  remedy this evil; Mr. King, Mr.  Crerar, Liberals and Progressives,  voted for delay and continued burden  on the people.  ..-'���������Hear    the    friend      of   all    kids,  "Dinny" Upton.
