Outside capital    .. is  sure to be not wanting in a town.*,  where its residents have such faith v  in their own town.  A  TRAVELLED MONARCH  The boxing .match on Monday  evening was not a success by any  means,,there be'ng much argument  as to who won. Thompson s supposed to have won by a fluke.  Abbotsford is exceedingly fortunate in having among its builu-  ���������ers a lady who makes it a point  to  build  business blocks.      ' Mrj.  Campbell  is  building  yet  another  structure which is to be occupied.  as an auction room by Lindsay Rug  sell, who has been'recently nicknamed  Rustling Lindsay.  r^t might be remarked in connection* with  the. above  that Lindsay-  Russell has done more in the way  of  advertising  Abbotsford      than  any other single person in the city  But then.he is doing it in such   a  way that many more besides himself, are reaping the benefit. \\ ell  good luck tp him and his office boy  (Silver Tip.)  ^  His  Majesty King George  V.  is  the most widely travelled monarch  that ever sat  upon a throne.   All  other  kings,  emperor3  and rulers  of every kind have been stay-at-  homes as compared with him.   He  is the onlyvjeigning sovereign whp  has ever been in America, .-and the  late king was the only other one  to visit the western' side of the Atlantic.   He  is  the ' only European  sovereign who has been in Africa  or Asia, unless some of. them may  have  touched at ports along the  Mediterannean.      He  is* the   only  sovereign, living or dead  that ever was in Australia.   He has been  six  times  in  Canada, three  times  in India, and twice in <   Australia.  There are not many       first-class  ports in the world and none under  the British flag into which he has  not sailed.   He knows every capit'  al in Europe.   If travel-isi .a training for *the 'discharge.,of a-monarch's duty, His Majesty; has certainly  graduated.      These widely  extended travels were undertaken  from sense of duty and, very large  ly by the advice of his father, who  rightly held that, the man who was  to be at the head of the British Em  pir.e ought to  know that Empire,  as well as possible.   It is a matter  of no srnair importance that at a  '���������time when the imperial idea-is rapidly taken shape, the King.should,  be a man as'familiar, with the Empire as any one of'his subjects and  ���������vastly more so than most of them.  Messrs P. Burns ���������Company of  Vancouver have now .a- representative here delivering beef to the  various Great Northern railway  construction camps. Judging by  the amount of beef consumed, nam  ely from six to ten beeves per day  one would 'think (that the G^-eat  Northern employees were not of  the kind that do not enjoy good  roast b������,ef.

THE PRESBYTERIAN CHURCH  The Presbyterian church at Abbotsford is .most fortunate in securing the services of the Rev. J.  L. Campbell, Bl A. B. D., for its  pastor, and the residents of Abbotsford and surrounding district  seem to appreciate that fact for  on Sunday last the church was'filled to the door, many people walking mi'es to hear him. The Rev Mr  Campbell preached a fine sermon  from the 4th chapter of St. John,  29th verse, which was a real education and enjoyed very' much by  his hearers. The -singing by the  newly organized choir was fine.  Mr; Caihpbe'll is an eastern' man  having' resided many years near-  Toronto for many years in his last  charge.   .       "���������-.;';."..  DOG .POISONER ABROAD  Tk������ dog poisbner has begun operations in town, and some very  valuable and other\ dogs have been  poisoned lately;.' This will'��������� be a  very serious matter for some one  as the provincial, police have been  communicated w!ith for the purpose of locating the culprit. No  great difficulty, is, expected in locating the party who is responsible for the sorrowful dog .owners  during the last two months. A-  mong the dogs missing are Mr. J.  A. Blair's, St. Bernard; .Mr. G. H.  Kerr's Spaniel and Mr. A. M, King's  Teddy. *  Miss McGillivray spent a couple  of days in New Westminster visiting friends.  GOVERNMENT ROAD WORK  GOING A PACE.  The government road work is  progressing favorably . anu s Mr  Gazley is simply walking over hie  portion of the work and every day  shows a vast improvement- The  government off ciate*showed great  wisdom in securing Mr.'Gazley for  the.work and Abbotsford is reaping the benefit of his fifteen years  experience in road making.  , Mr. B. J. Gernaey spent Sunday  in Sumas;  Mr. Thomas d'Neil of Clayburn  was in Abbotsford and Sumas on  Sunday.  Mrs. J. J. Sparrow who underwent a serious operation at the  Sumas hospital is now reported aa  convalescing.  Mr. H. Freeman who went to  Kamloops on Monday last is expected   home   to-morrow.  Miss Crawford the popular principal of our public school has been  visiting friends in Vancouver,during the holiday season.  Miss Elliot, of the Hudson  Bay  stores in Vancouver, accompanied  by MissMcGeer, was on a visit to  .her parents the early part of the  week.  Mrs. L. Campbell of Lochsloy,  Wash., who has' been on a visit to  her sister, Mrs. Coogan, returned  home to-day. She was accompanied by MtesEffie Wooler.  Mr .and Mrs. J. A. Blair are in  New Westminster this week.  Mr. S. J.

Eastern people who contemplate  coming to the Fraser galley are generally, as full of questions us an egg Is  full of meat and give their acquaintances here no little trouble in besieging them for Information, which it  needs a considerable amount of time  and research to impart. For the benefit of such persons, both inquirers  and inqulrees, the following brief facts  are presented, which will save much  letter writing:  The Lower Fraser Valley, as generally understood, includes that portion  of the Province of British Columbia lying south and.north, of the Fraser riv<  er west of Hope to the sea-coaBt, and  comprising the - Municipalities, of- Chilliwack, Sumas, Langley, Surrey and  Delta on the south.side of the river;  and Kent, Dewdney, 'Nicomen Island,  Mission, Maple Ridge, Coqultlurn, Burnaby and Richmond on" the north' side  of the river.  This section differs from the rest .of  the province on the mainland, having  a warmer and more even climate'. 'We  have practically' a tropical climate,  having but two seasons,' the -.wet and  the dry. It is seldom that the climate  reaches below the .zero .'point,: except  it maybe for a few...'days,in* January  and February, when.*,the temperature  may fall to zero, or<-two or -three .decrees below. -When���������the--temperature  takes this change, we have 'very^brlght  and sunny days and is enjoyed by the  people from the pralries-rreminding  them as it were-in a mild form of the  climate where they once resided.-We  have yet to learn that it has made any  of them homesick. 'However; to them  it is an enjoyable change for a. few  days. '  November- and December'; are the  rainy months, although'; as a rule-the  rain falls for only -two or -three days  at a time, the intervals- being* warm  and generally sunny. 'The average  rainfall will not exceed' ?? inches.  The eastern part of the valley, from  Mission City inland t has but little of  the fog customary further west and  on the sea coast. It is often remarked  that Mission City enjoys the coast climate with the exception of the, .fog.  Epidemic diseases-, poisonous Insects,  tornadoes, cyclones, blizzards, and  thunderstorms, are', conspicuous by  their absence.  The productions "of the valley are of  a semi-tropical nature���������practically a  fruit growing district, although in some  parts grain growing and dairying Is  -carried on with a.highly marked degree of success���������parts of the ' valley  being particularly, adapted for pasturing and dairying/but the greater part  of the valley, is' adapted' particularly  for fruit growing.  Irrigation is unnecessary, ��������� and all  fruits are grown <. sucessfully > without  it, and ln no place in the valley does  the soil become entirely-dry at any  season of the year, the ground may. appear dry, but by disturbing :the-'surface soil it will.be found* that there  is 'sufficient, moisture -.to- produce  growth. That no Irrigation is necessary is an ��������� Important ������������������ factor in fruit  growing. It.might be said that-horticulture is the chief occupation and as  the district increases in population.tho  growing of the small fruits will, become an occupation in which 90, per  cent, of the population will be,, en-;  gaged. The strawberries grown are  of a superior quality, and require careful and judicious marketing to make  Mission famous���������the bench lands on  the north banks of the Fraser river.  There is no danger of over production et strawberries, or small fruits,  for mini' years to come at leaBt. The  area of land adapted ��������� to strawberry  growing is somewhat limited,' but the  markets, both in this province and In  the prairie provinces, are practically  unlimited.

A strawberry patch pays from $400  to $800 an acre after'the first year,  and $300 to $600 the second year.
