The occasion was the  presentation of the certificates obtained this year at the annual examination of the Associated Board. All  who presented 'themselves being successful in their respective 'grades  from Primary to Advanced- and each  of these rendered a musical .selection  Mr. Hill-Tout very kindly presided  in his usual happy manner and in  the course of his address dwelt upon  the value of music in the home circle  and in the community and pointed out  that success in the art necessitated  application on the part of the student  as. well as ability. He also <spoke. of  the searching nature and high standard of the examinations of the Associated Board, which are rapidly becoming known throughout Domin  ion. Finally he congratulated the  town of Abbotsford' on having two  such efficient teachers in their midst.  Certificates were presented to the  following:  How  about that   "thin  registered  tenor voice"?  Mr. J. J. Sparrow is well these days  Thank you. -  Among those registered at the Abbotsford Hotel during the- past week  were G. E.'Cooper. Vancouver; J: G.  Harkness, Milner; J. Gibson, Mt. Lehman;  Mr J.

If you COULD (although, OF COURSE, you  can't) stop every man you meet on the streets  asd ask: "Do you want to buy a pair of shoes?  (Or any-other kind of goods) You might find  half a dozen who would say "Yes." Perhaps not  one of these, however, would want to buy the  article you want to sell.  ��������� '      ���������      *  If your advertisement, however, were to be  printed in these columns this week, it would  ."stop" EVERY MAN IN TOWN WHO WANTS  TO BUY SHOES, OR CLOTHES, OR ANY  OTHER ARTICLE���������and it wouldn't "stop" anyone who didn't want to buy- That's the beauty  of the advertising way of finding a buyer. The  ad. finds the buyer through the simple process of  being easily and readily found BY the buyer-  And if, among the prospective buyers of goods,  there is one to whom your goods would be a bargain, and your ad. is a convincing one, you'll sell  what you want to sell.

In looking-over one of our exchanges from the prairie we no  tice that it has changed hands and judging,from the introductory  editorial of the new proprietor he is bound to make a success pi it  He realizes that in taking hold of a small paper he has his work  cut out for him,   Here is what he says:  "While in taking possession of the Sentinel, I do not feel that  - any apologies are necessary, I do feel that first of all a few words  of commendation are due my predecessor who launched the publication in 1908, and who has .superintended the business ever  since its inception until the present time. -  "A man who starts a newspaper in a small town can be very  becomingly comapred'to the first pioneer of the undeveloped  frontier who has practically nothing but hardships to endure until the onward march of civilization ushers in a new era of progress and development and he is ultimately rewarded with the  fruits of his untiring labors and self-denying efforts It was no  doubt as much pioneer life (in the newspaper field) to launch  The Sentinel, as it is pioneer life to the homesteader who launches out into the frontier and endeavors .to subdue the unwieldy  elements and transform them into a productive farm and a comfortable habitation.  "In fact nearly every small town is "blessed" with a newspaper many years before such towns are really sufficiently developed to warrant such an enterprise. . But newspaper men (not  unlike pioiieer homesteaders) are anxious to embark in business  upon their own responsibilities, but lacking capital, are willing  to become "peasant" proprietors. It goes without saying that  no capable and experienced newspaper man with capital was ever induced to embark upon the newspaper enterprise in small  villages, unless (in rare instances) the field offered exceedingly  hopeful signs and promises of substantial development. This  statement is so true that in many cases where competent men  have "got.a start" over the case, the desk and the press, at the  first opportunity they abandon the business for some oher calling with perhaps the consoling thought in mind that a man will  do almost anything to get a start."  After assurng his readers that the paper "is not "backed by  any political organization" he starts out to outline the policy of  the paper.

OF EGGS AND POULTRY  The Merritt Herald Scores One For The Farmers Of Chilliwack  Chilliwack farmers recently contributed a car load of potatoes  to the Municipal Relief Department for distribution among the  needy of South Vancouver.

'  Why all this tobacco begging for the soldiers at the front?  The military authorities should supply the soldiers with all the  tobacco that they need. Put tobacco along with tea, beef,  beans, ammunition and all other supplies needed by the men on  the firing line.

Once again the Liberals are badly excited over the approach of  a provincial election before Christmas. - The real truth about  the matter appears to be that the Victoria Times ran out of  real good live copy last Saturday and thought that if the Times  would give the government a little shaking up the Vancouver  Sun could be depended upon to do the rest.

Camhie  VANCOUVER  While the activities of the Live  Stock branch of, the Dominion Depart  ment of Agriculture with regard to  the organization of Co-operative EgG  and Poultry Marketing Associations  have been largely confined to date  to. the eastern provinces of the Dominion, the need and opportunity for  work of this' kind in the Western  Provinces have not been overlooked.  From' the fact that co-operative  marketing of poultry products ' was  something entirely new.it wasthought  advisable to thoroughly test out the  practicability of the system before extending dt to a wider area. Satisfactory results having been obtained in  the east arrangements are now being made to extend the work to the  Western Provinces    -  The new field to be organized will  receive the benefit "of the experience  of men who have been associated  with the co-operative work since its  inception M:r.

Fish every Thursday  A few years ago a beautiful woman  in the prime of life iay suffering upon a sick bed in a rural community.  It was imperative that she have a  physician at once.  The hired man was dispatched for  one in haste.   ���������     '  (-, He made the best time possible,but  the loi ds'were muddy, and bad, a::d  cut up, and travelling at best was  very sow.  He lost much time in going, and  the physician was equally delayed in  his progress.  After many hours he finally reached ' the side of the sufferer.  ���������   But death had-.beaten him���������death  had no.bad roads to cover.  Had the physician reached her a  little sooner her life coull have been  saved.  But he did his best���������and bad roads  did the rest.  Bad roals killed this woman.  And bad roads are killing others  every day in a like manner.  Now isn't this a compelling argument in favor of betten country  roads? Or. is the life of a human  being of less value than the cost of a  few dollars spent in road improvements?  Let our public men take this to  heart.
