Note���My Store will be closed on Victoria Day, May 24th.  The Gazley Block when erected  in 19099, was considered far superior requirements of the town. Mr  II. Gazley showed keen foresight  in erecting such a fine building n  the town of Abbotsford. The haii  in the second storey is one of the  finest in the Fraser Valley, and is  considerable of an attraction to  passing show people who stay over  otherwise  passing  the' town by.  The ground floor contains two  stores, at present occupied by Mr.  II. Alanson, with a fine stock oi  hardware and furniture. Mr. Alan-  son has recently erected a large  building next the Royal Bank foi  his machinery. The other store  in the G-azley block is occupied by  Mr, D. W. Turnbull, who recently  came to the town. He 'carries a  good general store stock and is  winning friends in Abbotsford for  himself.  Since the stores were completed  last year they have been continuously occupied.  Mr. Gazley came to the, town in  LflOl from Mission. He worked on  the C. P. R. as section foreman until last year. At present he is It;  charge of the provincial govern  ment work on Hazel Street.  Last summer Mr. Gazley erected  another fine building on Essendent  Avenue, now occupied by the Royal Bank of Canada. It is one of the  fine bui'dings in Abbotsford, and  with the Bank's own fixtures is a  credit to Abbotsford, many towns  much larger have a great doaJ  less commodious banking institution.  Mr. Gazley has shown unbounded  faith in Abbotsford, and it is just  si'ch men as Mr. Gazley; that is go  ing to push Abbotsford to the  front in the years to' come. We  ail wish him the best ofluck in ati  his present and future undertaa.-  3SE35S  iBBCT^Eyi  "W      "        '11  \   "I '��� \ < ' J"  Caterpillars at Work.  A plague of tent caterpillars is  causing considerable destruction  in orchards on Vancouver Island  as well as certain points on the  mainland according to Mr. Thomas  Wilson, dominion fruit inspector  who returned from Victoria a few  days ago after inspecting a number of orchards in the vicinity of  that -city'.. These pests denude  the trees..of foliage and practic  ally kill all prospects of a fruit  crop  for the  season. ;  On the Mainland, states Mr. Wilson, the caterpillars have appear  ' ed this year as far up the Fraser  Valley as Agassiz. Last summer  they were not to be found above  Mission. Not many have been reported as existing in the. vicinty  of Vancouver, but some trees in  the city and surrounding suburua  have been attacked during the  past few weeks. :  KEEPS A-GOING TOO.  Abbotsford has only one automobile, but thait 'ere; auto seems always to be toot-tooting.round th>i  .district and our reial estate  men find it a great boon to be able  to show the clients around in dou ���  ble quick time. ' The stranger  withinour gates appreciates such  up-to-date service and even although he does not buy, goes away  feeling that the men he expected  to deal with show such a progressive spirit. This may be thtj  means of bringing him back again  REAL  ESTATE STILL  BOOMING  Real estate still continues to.  be good. There are a bunch of  "knockers" burying their little  hammers. Sneers are fast die-  appearing. Sim'.es predominate  This is as should be. The gods an  going to be good to Abbotsford.  Watch  Abbotsford   GROW!  Centract for Seven  Miles.

THe   DUNCE   WAS   SURPRISED.  A good story is told of Sir Wal-"  ter Scott.   It seems he was      far  from being a brilliant'scholar, and  at school was usually at the foot  of the class.   After he became famous he one day dropped into the  old  school ,to  pay. a visit  to the  scene of his 'former woes.       The  teacher was anxious' to make     a  good 'impression' oh    the    writer,  and put the pupils through their  lessons so as to show, them to the  best   advantage.    After  a    while  Scott said; "But which is the dunce  You have one surely?   Show him  me.". The teaicher called up a poor  fellow, who looked the picture of"  woe as he bashfully came, toward  the. distinguished   stranger.- "Are  you the dunce?" asked Scott. "Yes  sir," nai.1 the boy, "Well, my good  fellow, here is aj crown, for you for  keeping my place warm."���Ex.  ���-���������0   Send the Post to your friends in the.  East.  There   is   but   little   doubt     but  that man is a selfish creature. This  selfishness  is  predominant  in  tho  newspaper  field  to   a greater  degree than there  is absolutely any  necessity   for.   This   selfishness   ia  mostly    "Shown    in    literary   pii-  acy, and some of the big dailies of  the province are as guilty as guilty can be.   Of course there is nothing new under the sun; and     the  news items of to-day are just repetitions   of .the   events  of  years  ago, retold anew'and .probably under different     circumstances, and  when   a small   country   paper   undertakes to start in a small town  and  boost  for  that town���'and  all  small papers are  great boosters���  the city dailies when they copy an  item   from ���   a     country       paper  Bhould give that paper credit for  It, a'nd if necessary the! town it is  printed In.     This-is  what  is  due  the  district  where- the paper exists,  and there  should  be  enough  courtesy about the big daily'     to  boost the district, where that par  per may also have subscribers.  One of the fairest papers in the  province in this respect is the daily  Columbian  of New . Westminster,  [f you will notice when that paper  quotes   it   generally   gives   credit,  and'in  doing  so  eliminates  itself  .from the long list ofliterary pirates, some of which exist in New  Westminster,  and thus creates  in  the   minds  of' its  readers   a good  for itself, for there are few people  who do not like to see their local  1 paper quoted.   That was  our impression    before      entering      the  fourth estate^-and while there maybe   a certain  amount   of  editorial  pride  in  being  quoted,  there  arc-  few of us, wee country editors, who  do not feel  that quotations are a  great deal more of a boost for the  district than for the paper.   As a  matter of fact the country editor  and   his   paper "do   not   need the  boosting of the big dailies, but the  district  the  home   of the  country  paper,   is  entitled   to   all   that   is  coming  to   it.   And   when  a   BIG  daily. quotes   from   a wee   weeklv  it   does  the   right   thing  when   it  gives credit.  Here .is what the Columbian says  You will no;ice.that the Columbian  is noc afraid to let its readers  know that such a paper exists in  Abbotsford.  ABBOTSFORD-ENTERTAINS   ,  HIGH HOPES;  banking for future greatness."  The Columbian then tells where  Abbotsford is located and enlarges on the front page article of  last week's issue. All of which ��s  considered a boost for the town.  Ic is certain that neither the Columbian nor any other paper wil'i  lose prestige by quoting from a  country   paper.  THE    MARKET.

An increase in the price of eggs  wholesale of one cent per dozen  and the usual drop of $1 Jfer ton in  potatoes were the most marked  fluctuations recorded. The attendance was about the average  and saleswere reported to be fairly brisk.'   f  At the conclusion of the day's  business the price of meats of all  kinds remained unchanged from  last week. Lamb and mutton  were still short of Biipply, while  boef and pork were present in fair  quantities. Pork is still selling at  13 cents per- pound and the retail  ers report but little local beef being marketed at that price, but  what was offered sold readily.  The supply of eggs, was fairly-  good with a brisk demand. The  average price-wholesale was 2ia  a dozen. as opposed to < 26c last  week. The retail price remained  at 35c. Fowl was: offered- in the  usual large supply and the demand  was good. The. first broilers of  the season were on sale on Friday  but were rather small. They sold  at from $4.50 to $5.00 per dozen  and the price is. expected to increase as soon ;as larger birds are  offered. Some young ducks were  .rather small. They sold at from  $4.50 to $5.50 per dozen and1 the  price is expected to increase as  as larger birds are offered. Some  young ducks wTere also on sale, but  were rather small for the season,  sold at from $6.00 to $6.50 per dozen, while larger ducks of last years  hatching brought $15 per dozen.  The supply of potatoes was as  usual large and the price declined  another $1 per ton and selling at  $14 per ton. Other vegetables  were plentiful and sold at quotations. ���  Farmers on the niarket on Friday report seeding as practically completed throughout the district a9 far as the early spring  grains were concerned. Oats are  about all in and .are. already show  green.

'.in .j,! ��..rc  Fraser Valley Automobile  Route  ���  (from .Fraser Valley Record.)  Little has been heard of the Vancouver Tourist Association in its  agitation for good roads in .the  lower   mainland   of  the  province.  Last yeur when that association  wrote to the Matsqui council for  assistance in improving the roads  in'order to facilitate driving and  automobile trips for tourists, this  paper suggested the Fraser; Valley.  Automobile   Route.  The route ' suggested was from  Vancouver to -Mission City, via  New Westminster and Westminster Junction theme across the Fraser River vto .Abbotsford on the  south side of the river and west,  over the Yale road across the New  Westminster bridge, to Vancouver  a distance of 90 or 100 miles.  There were mentioned' two- barriers to this being p. successful  route at that time���the completion  ot the Dewdney Trunk Road as far  east as Mission City, and a ferry  or bridge across the Fraser River  at Mission City. .    .  One of theBe difficulties is now  about overcome, and early this  summer the Dewdney Trunk road  will be open to Mission City; but  we are sorry to relate that bridge  or ferry across the Fraser-.yet re-,  mains in abeyance and so far as  Missiohites are concerned nothing  is'' known as to when a promise  made will be fulfilled. .  ��� Last year during .election .and  previous to that time there was a  promise made by no less a personage than the Hon. Thomas Taylor,  minister of Public Works for. the  province, that the people would be  blessed with a ferry across the  Fraser.. The estimates did not  contain an appropriation for a ferry across the Fraser at this point  although there were numerous oth  er ferries to be established at several points along the Fraser River  of less importance to the' travelling public ,than this point. However, seeing that we have' our lo-  cul member on our side, ."all hope  has not been abandoned, and we  expect to have the ferry sometime.  The sooner the better.    ���  . If, the Vancouver Tourist-Association and those interested were  to bring the full pressure!-of their  political strength "in co-operation  with the local-members-Mr. Man-  son and Mr. Cawley, there is but  little doubt the - government  would , accede to the request and  a ferry would be established at  an early date.  The residents.of Miss'on, Matsqui  and Abbotsford are one in wishing  to have communication established  across the Fraser Rive, but how to  secure the desired end has . not  been made clear'���in fact after Mr.  Taylor's promise last summer on  the occasion of his visit through  the municipality the matter was  so far as the people was concerned left in abeyance, as all appear  ed to desire nothing else than the  faithful promise of bur minister of  public works.  This difficulty of a ferry removed there is no reason, why the  Fraser Valley automobile run  should not become a popular one  should not become a popular one  for the residents of Vancouver, as  well as tourists. ' The route leads  through some of the finest fruic  and dairying land in the Fraser.  Valley, or for that part, any other  place in the province. The, scenery is grand, farm life would be.  seen in all its prosperity, and a  most excellent advertisement it  would be for the districts.  The bridge would.be a blessing  to the reeidents .in this "neck of  the woods" as well as advantage  to those wishing to enjoy the  pleasures of an auto ride; and  would rival any other route m  the province as an automobile  route.
