The date for holding the  fall fair has not yet been decided on  and will not be .known until the Society" hears from the Department of  Agriculture, as that department sets  the dates of all fairs of the province.  Another meeting will be held on  June 17 in the Municipal Hall.  Owing to th$ success of the previous fairs held in Abbotsford the farmers are enthusiastic this year again  and intend to have just as-good a  fair as last year, and perhaps a little  better  RIDGEDALE BELGIAN  * RELIEF FUND  A concert-and garden party was  given at the home of Mrs. Hayton  on Monday, with a large attendance  and was from, all points an excellent  success, both financially and from a  point of entertainment.

With the object of making it more  of a success than last year a subscription list was opened and was  well .contributed to by the members  present, quite a large sum being raised.  Now is the proper time to get in  and work for the culmination of one  .grand and successful fair that will be  representative of the best that can" be  grown in the surrounding district.

Word has been received .by relatives in Mission City that the'29th  arrived safely in Montreal last'week  and boarded the steamer which will  carry them .across the Atlantic. On  board the steamer on May the 20th  Mr.- Charles Bray' writes this paper  as follows: '   .  "Would you kindly publish in the  next issue of the Fraser Valley Retford a few words of appreciation  from the boys of the 29th Battalion  and especially from members of D  (Westminster) Company for the reception tendered them while en route  for the seat of war.The greetings  handed out together with the many  donations in the.way of fruit, candies  and tobacco was a great surprise tor  the,boys. It was practically ��������� the  first greeting received following our  start from Vancouver and while these  functions were numerous during our  trip cross the continent, what was  done by the citizens of the little  town of Mission compared favorably  with those where several days notification had been received. In fact  coming as It did from a British Columbia settlement it was even better  appreciated.  He then signs his name: "Chas.  Bray, D. Company, Tobins Tigers."  The boys had a pleasant trip and  enoyed the trip across the continent  mission of coins, either in letters or  parcels is expressly prohibited. Postal notes and Bank notes should not  be sent,  8. It must be understood that no  guarantee of the delivery of either  parcels or letters can be given and  that the Post Office accepts no responsibility. In any case, considerable delay may take place and failure  to receive an acknowledgement  should not necessarily be" taken aB an  indication that letters and parcels  sent have not been delivered.  9. So far as is known, prisoners  of war in Germany are allowed to  write letters or postcards from time  to time; but they may not always  have facilities for* doing so arid the  fact that no communication is received from them need not give rise to  anxiety.  The following letter was' read by-  Miss Cruickshanks,  dated May 5th,  from Ward A.

A. BATES, -     ���������* Editor and Proprietor  FRIDAY, MAY 28 1915  When the war is over and it comes to a,settlement of the affairs of Europe will the United States be in a position, as  a neutral country,to take a prominent part in the settlement of  the little matters of dispute. A country's reputation is.not made  in a day; the standing which a country has among the other  countries���������a nation among nations���������is a matter of very grave  importance, especially when it comes to. giving advice'that will  be acted upon. The position of the United States during this war  is like the man who has always his open hand behind him ready  for the cash tip. While the nations of Europe are fighting for  greater freedom���������that is the Allies���������the United States is after  the big round dollar; or in other words the fighting nations of  Europe are living in one age and the.United States is living in  another age���������the age of financial gain. How can the nations  that have won and the nations that have lost put any trust in  the United States, who is known to be after personal gain, not  any sympathy for the advances made for the freedom of the individual and the nation���������just after the big round dollar.  It may be a strange way to view matters; but do we generally  go to the cheerful and the gay for sympthy in time of sorrow?  ' We go to those who are known to have a fellow-feeling for  those in trouble.    Is it not so with nations.  We may not wish to see the United States at war, but we.sure  would wish to see'a wholesome sympathy, for the Allies who are  fighting for a freedom���������of which the United States boasts so  much of���������but it is really the freedom which the almighty, dollar,  gives, an entirely different matter than the kind of freedom  which the Allies are" fighting for.. The sympthy. cannot be there  so the advice to be given at that time '"cannot amount to very  much in the way of settling matters, unless, there is a dollar or  two in it, and then only according to the amount added to the  treasury.

PAX   AMERICANA  ��������� THE HOUSE .FLY NUISANCE .NEAR AT HAND  The common housefly, notwithstanding the campaigns.of de-  . structiOn which have been waged against it, is still one of the  most dangerous pests with which the civilized race is afflicted1,  except it be "Kultur" Due entirely to conditions which have  been created and' maintained by the people themselves, the  house fly continues to exist and to multiply  Persistant effort is the only insurance against the house fly.  Its's rapid propagation renders any intermittent campaign nugatory.     The fly: must be attacked first in its breeding place;  : which is that of the stable manure or filth.   It requires a period of about ten days for a fly to hatch and become full-grown.  From these breeding places they scatter to food supplies, into  homes dairies and shops, carrying with them typhoid, dysentery,  and other disease1 germs. '��������� ~ <i <���������   "   '   j  '. .   It is not too early to take precautions against the.annual attacks of the house fly.,   During.the summer if it is not feasible  ;��������� to remove accumulations  of manure daily it should bee kept in  a closed bin or other receptacle, impervious to flies. Yards  . should be cleaned up and kept free from wet and rotting matter  . which harbor flies.    Garbage cans should be cleaned out thoroughly, and disinfected.  Carefully protect all food and drink from flies by wire or other  screens. All doors and windows of homes should be screened  and, if flies get inside, they should be atonce killed. Ply swatters are cheap and handy. Sticky fly paper and fly poison are  effective means of destruction. . Formalin solutions are easy  to prepare and may be used with success. The methods of use  . are as follows: Mix two tablespoonfuls of formaldehyde (formalin) with one pint of a mixture of milk and water. Pour  into a piece of bread in the centre for the flies to light on. This  may be placed at the back door of residence, in or about dairies  or barns or whereever flies gather.  Or a soap plate may be filled with damp sand.. Cover:.with a  disk of blotting paper and sprinkle ove it a mixture of one part  of formalin to twenty parts of water! ' ���������.     ���������  The object to be aimed at is, however, the destruction of the  house fly, and any means to accomplish this will be justified.  (By Bernard K.

YOU CAN HELP SOME  Perhaps you don't care whether you do or not, but the following may show you why you should care: ���������  One of the most difficult tasks in a newspaper office is in getting the facts relative to births, marriages and deaths in the  community. Many people tak.e for granted that when a person  dies the editor is familiar with every detail of the life of the  deceased and his activities when as a fact he sometinmes knows  absolutely nothing about him, but he has to get his information  from other.sources, as other persons would have to do.  It is the same with marriages or other less important happenings In th������ community. In almost every case the editor  has to dig up the particulars to satisfy himself and the readers  with a meagre and inaccurate account.  The average editor of a country paper has something like a  million and a half of things to do and to think about in a week,  and the patrons can hardly overestimate how much he appreciates any efforts they make in furnishing him the facts for news  items.  Send your items of news to this paper, the editor will appreciate it very much indeed.  , An informal dance was held in the  Amusement , Hall at Stave Falls on  Saturday May 22nd.

The fact that its author lost  his life in the most Hellish deed yet  contrived by the Kaiser-.and his advisors  lends  particular  interest    at  this time to Hubbard's, opinion of  the German War Lord and of tlie  war which he instigated."  The average water pressure-on the  city mains at Nelson for tho month  of April was 155 pounds.  BUTCHER  Pork, Mutton, Heef, Veal, Pork Sausages, "Wieners  and Balogna always on hand.    Fish every Thursday  If any one asks, Who Lifted the  Lid off of  Hell?   let    the    truthful  answer be: William Hohen|zollern  "Bill Kaiser" has a withered hand  and a runing ear.  Also, he has a shrunken soul, and  a mind that reeks with egomania.  He is a mattiod degenerate of a  noble  grandmother. -  ln degree he has her power, but  not her love. He has her perslstance  but not her prescience.  He is swollen, like a\lrowned pup,  with a pride that stink's;  He never wrote a letter nor , a  message wherein he did not speak of  God as if the Creator was waiting  to see him in the lobby!      "God is  with us"��������� "God is destroying our  enemies"���������"I am praying our God to  be with you"���������"God is giving us victories"���������"I am accountable only to  my conscience and to God."  This belief that the Maker of the  Universe takes a special interest in  him marks the man as a megaloma  niac; and the idea that the- nations  were "laying, for.,him' is the true  symptom  of .paranoia..  .

Every penny in every savings-bank  in Germany has been levied upon,  and a "receipt" given to,the starving  holder. This loss of a lifetime's savings means death to multitudes of old  people, to widows; children, invalids  and cripples.     - ��������� --  The money a man might have left  to care for his widow, orphans, aged  parents, is swept away'in the maelstrom  of blood.  Old-age pensions, sick benefits, and  life insurance, are only dreams.  We are told that the Kaiser kept  the peace for forty three years. True  dominion.  Corporation of the District of Sumas  Huntingdon, B. C  COURT OP REVISION, 1015  I Every male child in that forty-  three years, who can now carry a gun  is taken from useful work, and made  to do the obscene bidding of this sad  mad, bad, bloody monster.  In Germany no private individual  can,operate an automobile. All-the  oil and "petrol" has been seized to incinerate' the dead. No slab mark's  their resting-place���������no records of the  slain are .kept.  In Germany to day, no. bands play  in the public parks.; all savings-  banks are closed, commercial banks  pay or not,, as the War Minister orders;   all   insurance  companies���������both  life and fire���������are bankrupt; colleges are turned into hospitals���������all  students are at the front; factories  are closed: laboratories are memories  All the progress of the last forty-  three years lies a jumbled, tumbled  mass of fears and tears in the dust  and dirt of the gladiatorial arena'.  All the wealth gained, in that forty-  three years is already lost, dissolved  in a mulch of festering human,flesh.  Caligua, that royal, pagan pervert,  kind compared with the Kaiser.  lN* Nero,'the fiddling fiend, with his  carelessness in tlie use of tire, never  burned property in all his pestilential career worth one-half that desr  troyed when the Kaiser's troops applied the torch to storied Louvain.  What has been done before may be  done  again.    The     "Thirty    Years'  War", reduced Germany to cannibal  ism.    The old and the crippled were  knocked on the head and eaten.  The nunneries were turnod into  communes. Nuns, widows, girls,  seized and distributed like cattle.  Every soldier was ordered to take  two wives, because the country must  be re-populatel.  Women and children toiled in the  fields like beasts of burden to raise  crops to feed the people.  Family names were lost, destroyed,  forgotten.  ��������� A new. order prevailed.  ���������'Toicommemorate the dead was a  crime.  . ���������  WILL HOLD A DYKING MEETING  It is reported that there will be a  dyking meeting held In Huntingdon  "by the ratepayers of the Sumas district next Wednesday evening. , The.  place of meeting has not yet been decided upon, but it is understood" that  matters of, importance to the farms  within the dyking district will come  upfor discussion.  ' A San Joaquin Valley editor who  was asked by his son to help him  with some of the problems assigned  at night work, says he can't see how  the boy is going to learn anything  when his teacher sends him honie  with problems like the following: "If  it takes a four months-old. woodpecker with a rubber bill nine months  and thirteen days to peck a hole  through a cypress log that is big enough to make 117 shingles,, and it  takes 165 shingles to make a bundle  worth 93 cents, how long will it take  a cross-eyed-eyed grosshopper with a  .cork log to kick all the seeds out of  a dill pickle."

Our hearts are with  Germany���������the Germany-of invention,  science,- music, education, skill���������but  not with the War-Lord. The Emperor does not -represent the true  Germany.- He symbols the lust of  power, the thirst for blood.  The crazy Kaiser will not. win. The  wisdom of the world backs the" Allies  and Saint Helena awaits. It must be  so. -,  Germany will not. be subjugated,  but she will be relieved of a succubus  that has threatened her very exist-,  ence.  Disarmament must come.  This awful chain of wars will make  a World Federation a necessity. It  need not longer'be argued for. Not  a sane man or woman on earth but  knows World Federation and disarmament means the safety of the race.  Canada and the United States have  kept the peace for a hundred years,  by "an agreement" whereby it was  provided that each government  should have on the lakes two boats  each with a crew not to exceed twen  ty-six men.  The "arrangement" has worked.  One army and one navy, serving as  police, can keep the peace.  Beyond this "preparedness" spells  hell in italics.  Let us thank William.the Second  for exploding for us, among other  bombs, the bromidial fallacy that  vast a'rmaments insure peace.  When things get bad enough they  tend to cure themselves.  The. Law of Compensation is at  work. At the close of this war,  which famine will dictate shall be  brief, there will be for sale a fine job-  lot of second-hand crowns. And the  force's of industry, economy, science  and love shall rule the world.  RIDERS WANTED as agents for  high grade bicycles. Write for low  pcises to THOS PLIMEY'S CYCLE  WORKS.  VICTORIA.  B.
