Frederick Clarkson. a returned soldier, filed a petition in the supreme  court yesterday for the dissolution o:'  his marriage with Sylvia Blanche Mil-  burn Clarkson. The name of Johnson Cannon is given as the alleged  co-respondent. The marriage was  held at Athalmar in this province on  June 29, 1912, and there are two  children.

Ottawa Expects the    100,000    Rein-  lorceinents   to   be  made   up   from  those First Called.  Ottawa, Oct. 3 0.���������Preparations  have been rushed to take care of the  first men called up under the Military Service Act, since ail indications  point to a heavy response at the  very  first. Jt  requires  a     huge  organization, throughout the country  to take care of the operation of the  Act.  The Governor-General's Proclam-  tion was printed in all the newspapers of the country on October 13  calling up the first class. This includes all male British subjects between the ages of 20 and 34 who were  unmarried on July 6, .1917. or arc  widowers   without   children. All  such men must report for service on  or before November 10 next, if application for exemption has not been  made in tlieir behalf before that  date.  Since, by this time, the country  has been fully informed as fo each  man's duty under the Military Service Act, and knows the sever,?  penalties provided for those who try  to evade the law, a speedy formation of the required reinforcements  to the number of 100,000 is expected  from  the first class called.  DOINGS  AT DEWDNEY  ���������e-  of  Many have been the admiring  marks regarding the increase  stock on Mr. R. J. Fellowes' ran-"h  A month ago a shipment of fifteen  hea dof pure bred Holsteins arrived  and during thc past week he brougnc  up one of the most magnificent studs  ever seen in the countryside, "Welcome Guest."  A man who believes in the old saying, "See a pin and pick it up, and  all that day you'll have good luck"  saw a pin in front of the livery  stable the other day. Bending down  to get it,- his hat tumbled off and  rolled through the mud, his eye-glass  fell and broke on the sidewalk, his  ���������suspenders gave away, he bust the  wart on the back of his neck which  he used for a collar button, and  the automobile backed out just as  his teeth fell out; but he got the  pin.

He is  aparently well and his father and  mother, Mr. and Mrs. J. B. Miller  are delighted to have him home a-  gain.    Another son is now in France.  Pte. Miller enlisted from Clayburn.  MF,T   ACCIDENTAL   DEATH  The last Gazette to hand contains  the announcement of the formation  of the Hargitt Motor Company, Limited, with head office at Mission City  and capital of $20,000.  Tho funeral took place on Sunday  last of young Alexander Valentine,  who met accidental death at the Hatzic Shingle mill on Friday last.  The young lad, who was about 1 i  years of age was engaged at the mill  as block piler on the upper floor.  For some reason he went down v>  the second floor,although he had on  several occasions been warned not v>  do so. The engineer noticed the conveyor had" stopped and going down to  find' the trouble was horifiel t>  find young Valentine had got caught  on the shaft by his sweater and was  dead, probably choked to death. The  death must have been instantaneous  as it was only about a minute between the time the engineer noticed  the conveyor had stopped and his going over to find the cause of the  trouble. fi.������������tf luMWtfj���������Caimw-  !>��������� *������������������   ^^^^Jjwrant^k^^j***^  sacrsr:   ii-.'^  #HE ABBOTSFORD P6ST. &BkOTS#QftD.

But to raise money by selling Canada's  Victory Bonds means that those of the  next generation who will benefit by' the  sacrifices this generation is making;  ���������who will share in the freedom this  generation is fighting for and largely paying  for���������will also pay.their, share.  ���������   '   ���������       ��������� *' *  And. when you buy Canada's Victory  Bonds you make a first-class business investment in a security that is absolutely  safe, likely to enhance in value after the  war, and "bearing a good rate of interest.  You help the country by keeping open  the British market for Canadian products,  and this helps the general welfare in which  you share.  ���������fr 7-V & !  And again, every Canadian' who buys  a Victory Bond becomes a financial partner  or backer of Canada in tlie war.   .  When you buy a Canada Victory Bond  you give a personal pledge that you are  going to help to win the war.  Every man and woman in Canada can  help to win the war by .buying Canada's  Victory Bonds: ' And Canada wants the  personal, individual interest and co-operation of every man and woman' in the'  country. "    ,  The buying of Victory Bonds by the  whole people unites them in a determination  to win the war.  Every purchase of Canada's' Victory  Bonds is a blow for freedom against-the'  tyranny of German-Kiiltur.  Every bond sold is a new guarantee  that Canada is in the war to the finish,  until victory is with the Allies and the  world has been made safe to live in.  Every bond you buy is a new pledge  that Canada will remain true to Herself, the  Empire, the Allies and to freedom's cause.

A bag of  No. 1 Northern, clean as a whistle of.cockle and foxtail, was a  "symbol of sure value long before gold was known in the world.  Wheat was found in the Pyramids. The Egyptians just, about  worshipped wheat. The Bible calls it corn; so do the English.  But when we say "good as the wheat" we refer to the bushel,of  brown hard kernels worth by Government fixture this year,-$2.20  in the memory of living man when did "good as'the wheat"  mean more than it does now? Never. A bag of wheat weighing  two bushels and a neck tots up in 1917 to just about the value  ���������->{:' a five-dollar gold piece. But of course no man wants gold  for his wheat. All he gets is a check made out iir his favor  on some bank and signed by the manager of some elevator  company or milling concern. The clieck is converted into bills  or goes on deposit. Good wheat; good paper;'nobody asks any  Questions. Because the company is 0. K. and'the bank is sound.  If any wheat-seller had any doubt of either he would at once  demand something else.  "I sold good wheat," he would say. "I want something as  good in exchange."  What made the wheat good? The good armer behind it. A  noor farmer can make good seed into poor-wheat.  What makes the paper money good? The security of the corporation whose name it bears. The sounder the corporation,  Lhe nearer the paper comes to being as good as ihe wheat. But  even a big company may go "broke." Back of the corporation  is a concern whose guarantee on a piece of paper is better than  either. The pledge of the Dominion of Canada to pay any man  money for value received is as good as the wheat and as saf-j  as the Bank of England.  The best pledge of the Dominion of Canada to pay is a Canadian Victory Bond; better than checks or bills���������AS GOOD AS  WHEAT! Supose you change that twenty bags of wheat on  your wagon, not into a check or notes or even gold; but into  Canadian Victory Bonds of $50 each, bearing interest at five  and one-half per cent, per annum and as negotiable on the  market a the best check or the best load of wheat you ever  saw?

There are great doings in politics in Vancouver these days.  Some of the heads of the Borden Government has come to the  coast to teach the people the right method to pursue in the  matter of chosing a candidate to represent them at Ottawa.

IV  CANADA,  ss  137  It will be greatly to the advantage of Canada if the entire quota of 100,000 men to be raised under  the Military Service Act.can be. secured from tho first class; that is, from Ihe men between the ages or ZU  and 34 who were unmarried or widowers without children on July 6th, 1917.  This is almost self-evident for the following reasons:  it is admitted thr', between the ares of 20 and 34, the average man is at the height of his  physical strength and i-, most adaptable to the change of conditions from civilian life;  the military service of unmarried men and widowers without children would ^occasion less  distress than that of most others, since they are largely without dependents.    Also, it would  entail less financial burden for Canada, through separation allowances, etc.  Authorities estimate that, after all proper exemptions have been allowed, Canada should be able to  produce from the first class 100,000 men fit for service, so the drain upon the man power of the country  will not be severe.  Members of Class One will be well advised to present themselves for examination immediately to  the Medical Board in their district. Upon examination as to their physical fitnees, they will be placed in one  of thc following categories: ,  Category A���������if fit for service in overseas fighting units.  Category B���������if fit for service overseas in Army Medical Corps, Forestry Battalion, etc.  Catagory C���������if fit for service in Canada only.  Category E���������if unfit for military service of any nature.  If not placed in Category A, the applicant will know that he is not liable for immediate service, but will  go to the Post Office and send in a claim for exemption with his Medical Certificate attached, when he will receive in due course a certificate of exemption until those in his medical category are summoned for service.  Where a man, who is placed in category A, feels that exemption should be allowed, an application  form can be secured from the postmaster. This form, when filled in, will be forwarded by the postmaster  to the registrar of thc district, and the applicant will be informed by mail as to the time and place for the  ���������   !...".:__    _t  U: l:���������-i: 1���������.   tl.���������   F~���������rr,rx!-;r,r.
