TH G SMILE OF VICTORY  At a luncheon in Vancouver the other day, nearly a thousand  British Columbia business men picked up from the 'orchestra  the lilt of the chorus from the trenches. Over and over they  sang it in- increasing volume, the spirit of the song reflecting  their own. ''  The Minister of Finance, speaking a few minutes later on behalf of the Victory Loan adopted the refrain as the text for his  appeal.  And yesterday, on the eve of the Great Victory Loan drive for  half a billion dollars the committee adopted the same song as the  key-chorus for the campaign:  "Pack up your troubles in your old kit bag,  And smile, smile, smile."  Elsewhere Peter McArthur prescribes the Victory handshake  ���������the two fingers of the "superior person" who has bought his  Victory Bond, the inquiry which accompanies the, handshake,  and The Smile.    And the greatest of these The Smile!  As this Victory Loan will probably be the last big thing we  can do for our boys "over there," let us adopt their methods. In  the abominable filth and vermin of the unspeakable, trenches  they sing this song of cheer. They sing it as they pass those  acres of white crosses which fret the fields of France, and which  mark the last resting place of tlieir comrades. They fling it in  the bright eyes of danger when under fierce bombardment. And  because they are men who can so sing in such conditions they  are unbeatable.  ' It is this spirit which is bringing Victory in Picardy and in  Flanders today. It will insure the success of the Victory Loan in  Canada. .Under the strain of the Civil War, Lincoln took a copy  of Artemus Ward into the cabinet. At the very peak of his responsibilities in the present war, President Wilson came into  council rippling with laughter and with a newspaper comic strip  in his hand. Our soldiers sing and laugh to lift the strain. If  they lose the power to laugh they lose the power to fight. A  moping, solemn nation is a losing nation.  Such is Germany.  In this spirit the thousands of workers for the Victory Loan  are going into the fight. "Flu" can be fought with camphor and  quinine, but better still with courage. Preoccupation and concentration in this great drive is the great antidote for the worry  and apprehension on which such epidemics thrive.  "What's the use of worrying,it-never was worth while,  So pack your trouble in your old kit bag,  Anr smile, smile, smile."  The memorial  service was lickl in  the   Prsebytorian  church  on   Sunday  evening for f'l.o.   Walker C.  Wallace.  Rev.  Mr.   lioborfyon gave a a pi:)! id id  i sennon   and   very   appropriate.     The  ! choir sang solos,    Tlie    songs     sang  I were   Walkers   favorites,    Tlie  Rev.  j Mr.  Rowe gave over his service and  la number of his people, were present,  t.o show tlieir respect.'   Mr. Rowe expected   to  assist in   tlia  service     but  owing to a great number of cases of  ���������"flu"  in   the  Indian  school  his  ser-  sorviccs  were needed "there.  Pte. Wallace came from Scotland j  in April 1913, when in his ISth year, j  He enlisted September 1-91G and was j  wounded in August .19 17; and killed i H  in action on Sept.  29th,  1918.  The church was beautifuly decorated with flags and flowers in memory  of one who was so loved and'respected by all.  Abbotsford has "Gone Over the Top" to  the extent of $52*000���������the first in the  ���������Fraser Valley to achieve this success during the present campaign; It is something  to TALK, BOOST and SHOUT about  With every $25,000 over $40,000 a crown  and a flag is secured. Abbotsford has .the  flag, NOW FOR THE CROWN.  ���������  Be sure to get a button.'  HOW TO AVOID TilK ."F-JLU"  As we can't ignore the inevitable  "hints" for 'flu sufferers,' why nor  adapt them and use them in our propaganda.-    For instance:  1. To avoid 'flu, use camphor,  quinine and Courage, buy Victory  Bonds.  2. Keep your feet, warm���������on c'xvi  first symptom of., 'coi.^ t'<>q1" buy r���������  Victory Bond.  3. Avoid worry-���������think of Victory  and buy Boids.  4. Take plenty of open air exer���������  cise-^try selling Victory Bond s.  5. Put sulphur in your shoes���������  use ginger when buying Victory  Bonds...  There are numberless adaptations  of these much printed 'hints' which  will occur to you.  Another thing: wc arc asked to  sign our letters "Yours for the Victory Loan."  The most important part of the  letter is the postscript. Why not urce  all business people to instruct their  stenograph era to add a postscript to  nil letters on and after Monday he si",  a.s  follows:  "P. S. Have you bought your Victory Bonds yet?"  ������������������.YOUP.S  LOAX IMS'  "Yours for Victory -Loan 191S, is  the Canadian letter writer's slogan  in the Victory Loan campaign. Every  one is asked to sign his(or her letters in this .way. Already some are  doing it and before the campaign is  far advanced it is hoped the practice  will be general'.    It is an easy and almost effective way of  driving  home  the appeal for the Loan, and it will  reach practically every one. Business men particularly are .requested  to adopt the idea. As they read their  incoming and outgoing . letters, during the next few weeks, they will  confront "Yours for Victory Loan  "1918" scores of time's each'day. Start  now signing your letters in this way.  Get into the swing! Every little bit  is needed if Canada is to "go over  the top."  ORAXOK GHANO l.ODGJS  SJCCHBTARY WHITLEY DEAD  CARD OP THAKKS  Mr. and Mrs. Wallace beg to thank  their many friends in Abbotsford tor  kind expressions of sympathy in their  sad   beren vemen.

PHYLLIS  Premier Borden lias told the Unions of the Dominion that  if they have a better scheme for the prevention of strikes than  the Order-in-Council that he will be quite willing to listen to  them and would have no objections to adopting the scheme. The  strikes throughout Canada, and especially at the coast, have been  a disgrace to Canada during the war time. The best suggestion  the Unions' can give the Premier would be to suggest that the  leaders of all strikes be put into khaki. That would soon end  the strikes, because the men who agitate for strikes are usually  the shirkers.  DUKE OF DEVONSHIRE ACTS QUICKLY  Button, Button, who has a button ?      Get ready for a Victory Bond.  His Excellency the Duke of Devonshire wants a share of  Canada's Second Victory Loan. ��������� The following letter explains why: .  Ottawa, October, 1913.  My Dear Sir Thomas,  I shall be glad it" you will again include my name in the  first list of subscribers to the Victory Loan of ISIS.  This loan I am sure is of the utmost national importance  -in connection with Canada's continued effectual prosecution of the war, and the establish ment of Imperial credits  for the purchase of foodstuffs, munitions and other supplies urgently required by Great Britain and the Allies.   I have every confidence that the patriotism of the Canadian people which has so nobly sustained every duty and  obligation imposed by the- war,will again respond to the  appeal and that the Victory Loan of 1918 will be even a  more striking and notable success than that of last year.

Bates, Editor and Proprietor  ZlZ^MXiZ  BISTTRR GRADES WANTED   L ...,* L'l--. JK  FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 1, 1918  ccz  ' On Monday last Canada went over for about $500,000,000  for war purposes. That this amount will be attained there id  but little doubt. $300,000,000 is the amount asked for but the  Government lias intimated that it would be quite willing to take  $500,000,000 if the people so wish it. Canada wants to see an  end of the war witli the Allies winning and if money will help  Canadians arc quite willing that the- money should be loaned to  thc govern ment.    We shall see.  This is the fifth time the Kaiser has been hit with a Canadian Loan and each time the blow has been harder and bigger. In  November 1915 the total subscriptions were $113,729,500 and the  number of subscribers were 24,862. In September 1910 $201,444  SOO was subscribed by 34,526 subscribers, in March-1917, 40,800  subscribers lent the government'$270,768,000; and in 1917 the  Victory Loan amounted to $419,2S9,000 and" the number of subscribers had totalled to 820,035. In the Victory Loan of 191S���������  the last Victory Loan before the end of the war, the amount will  be considerably oyer $500,000,000 with over a million subscribers  The tax sales throughout the province with but few exceptions are past and the government is likely to have a lot of  land on their hands at the present tie. It may be good for  their friends later on.  We shall see if the numerous papers in the province who  have received the tax sale to publish will be any better friends  of the government that they were before.    There certainly has '.merits on a competitive market like  :,Several cars of American C grade  apples have appeared in Calga ry this  week. We examined them and find  , them all wrapped stock, of exceptional cruality for C grade, there is a  quantity of winter .varieties included  which were intended for fancy grade1  but owing to the state of premature  ripinlng they were -included in C  grade., We noticed Winter Bananas  and Jonathans, mellow with ripeness,  which is months ahead of their season.  Thero is nothing to justify the fool  ish statement often heard, from prairie jobbers that'Amerisan C grade is  equal  to    our No.     1���������they are not  even equal t.o our No. 2 coming from  good   packing  houses  in  B.   C,   but  they are far superior to o our No. '};  The B. C. apples are'finner and will  keep better, and are better flavored.  From what we have observed of C  grade importation  we are convinced  that our B.  C.  grading errs greatly  on  the    easy    side.     This  must  bo  changed,    and    our No.  1. 2, and  ii  brought up to equal tlie U. S.  lCxtra  Fancy, Fancy and C grade.  We have  thc stuff in H. C., but we put far too  much in No.- 1  grade that should  be  in   No.   2,  and   our     grade  No.   2   in  many  casos should   be crated  yfo-ik.  We are not fooling anyone but ourselves, as goods always sell on  tlieir  -been some political enemies of the government made owing to-  the method the advertising has been handled.    The government  had a chance though to'make friends instead of enemies.  There has been brought forward some talk of the tax sale  for New Westminster Assesment District not being quite legal  owing to the fact as stated at the sale that all the back taxes  were not included in the advertised list. In Mission City the  street lighting tax was not included, as was not all ihe school  taxes. .Here is a nice little point of law that might.make some  trouble for the government.  TEEMS OF VICTOR!

There, were, ' because they  worts not lumiliar with bondu, 01'  course all our rich men havo known  about, bonds for years, and many Of  our millionaire's havo never bought  anything else, hut tho rank and tile  of lhe people scarcely know anything  about liumi. In ICuropo the poor and  rich alike have invested in Government bonds for centuries and tho  people of England, for forty years  past, havo bought evory Canadian  bond wo wanted to sell them. >l  was only last year that Canada decided fo make what was really our  Urst. popular loan in this country.  Q. That 5 1-2 per cent should  catch on liko wild fire. Why doesn't  it?  A. It will. Supposing a man had  a savings account with a friend who  was paying him 3 per cent. Now  supposing another friend,, across tho  street, equally, reliable, offered him  4 per cent. Me would take his money across thc street, wouldn't he?  Now hero comes the Dominion of  Canada, which is stronger than cither friend, or anything else in the  world, offering him 5 .1-2 per cent.  The people of Canada are not stupid  They will know a good thing when  they see it and they will buy Victory  Bonds to the limit of. their a-  bili'ty.  What $.1,000 Victory Bond  Will  Bo  Q. Suppose I buy a $1,000 Victory Bond, just what will my $1,00 0  accomplish?  A.

Your $1,000. will buy 1000 pairs of  soldiers'   socks.  Your $1,000 will buy 450 bushels  of wheat.  Your $1,000 will buy 1250 bushels  of oats.  Your $1,000 will buy 4200 pounds  of cheese.

How Do I Buy   Victory Bonds?  Q. How much do Bonds of the  Victory Loan cost?  A. From $50 to $100,000, whatever their face value calls for. These  bonds are sold at "par" that is,  tlieir face value���������100 cents on the  dollar.  Q. How can I buy Bonds of the  Victory Loan?  A.

In what form must applications to buy a Victory Bond be made?  A. All applications must be in  tho form prescribed by the Minister  of Finance, obtainable from any Victory Loan canvasser, or from the.  Victory Loan Headquarters in your  community, or from any bank.  Whafi, Do I Get?  Q. When I hand to the Victory  Loan canvasser my application and  my checiue for 10 per cent of the a-  mount applied for, what do I receive?  A. You will receive by post witii-  iu a few days, an official Government  l'.jcoipt for this 10  per  long  do  1  How  cent,  hold  this  re-  celpt?  A. ,- Until you have paid in full  for your bond. On tho second and  subsequent instalment due dates you  make the required payment to the  bank on. which you drew your first  instalment choque and they will en-  t'*r receipt in the space reserved for  l';ii;3 purpose. .Remember you can  pay in full on any Instalment due  date' if you desire.  Q. What do 1 receive when the  official receipt records payment in  fall?  A. You aro then entitled to the  prermanant   engraved    bonds    which  More than a billion and la half dollars distributed  in Canada for exported agricultural produce and  the products of labor in the fiscal year ending  March 31, 1918, has kept Canada busy and  prosperous in spite of the war.  t  ANADA'S production in such enormous  quantities was made possible only by the  money received through Canada's War  Loans. Canada thus was enabled to assist the  Allies in their purchases here by establishing  financial credits for their use in'this country.  CANADA'S war loans not only  have sustained Canada's war  effort, but they have kept the wheels  of production turning as they never  turned before.  This is the flood of cash which  poured in to Canada's farms for their  exports in the fiscal year 1918, for:���������  Butter $   2,000,000  Cheese  36,602,000  Eggs ,  2,271,000  Oats  ���������-37,644,000  Wheat  366,341,000  Flpur  '95,896,000  Meats ,.  76,729,000  Vegetables '....'>,  19,034,000  Over  six  hundred   and   thirty-six  million  dollars   for   exported   farm  products alone 1  ��������� * *  ND the workers of Canada also  shared greatly in Canada's export trade.  For their products there was distributed in Canada, during the year:  Munitions ������450,000,000  Metals '.i,    92,083,000  Vehicles f \..    22,776,000  Wood Pulp and Paper]..    59,599,000  These huge sums were spent in  Canada by the Allies.  \fi.:  Canada's own war expenditure for  the fiscal year 1918 was $342,762,000.  And the bulk of all these expenditures, the foundation of Canada's  prosperity and war effectiveness, was  made possible only because the subscribers -to Canada's war Joans furnished the working capital.  CANADA must keep this great  work going���������must produce as  never before; must work, fight, save  and lend as she has never yet done to  bring victory and a lasting peace to  a war-ridden world.  But Canada to-day (thanks to her  great export trade), is in a better position now than ever, to carry on.  The Victory Loan 1918 will keep  Canada busy, will enable her to maintain her great export business; and it  will make Canada more efficient than  ever, because her prosperity will not  be diminished and her determination  to work, fight and win will be  stronger than it has ever been before.  Issued by Canada's Victory Loan Committee  in Co-operation with the Minister of Finance  of the Dominion of Canada.  will be delivered to you by tlie bank  in exchange for your official receipt.  In a Nutshell  Q.     How can I best help to make  the Victory Loan of 1918 a success?  A. First, by buying bonds; second, by urging others to buy. When  the campaign is on, see that all your  friends are wearing Victory buttons.  These denote that the wearer has  bought Victory Bonds.  -   Q.    I have a few employees���������can  they   help?  A. Yes. decidedly. In the first  place persuade lihem to buy bonds,  and secondly make it easy for them  to pay for the b cnd.3.- You are .doing- them, the gi������������atest service ���������'you  ever did them if-you help them to  buy Victory Boinfls which they can  put aside for a rminy day.  Q.    Can my wi Ce help too ?  A. Most certainly she can. Every  v-'cman- is needed. The women of  Canada  took  a  a wonderful  share .in  the last Victory Loan. Every woman, as well as every man, in Canada, must buy Victory Bonds to the  limit, in a word, we must make the  Victory Loan a success. And remember, it cannot be clone by investing $10 0 if you can invest $5 00  or   $1000.  Canada has never failed either in  tlie trenches or behind the lines.  Britain, Canada and our great Allies  have the Huns on the run. We've  got them going.    Help us finish them  KILLING DOGS IN BRITAIN  It is estimated that there are between four and five million dogs In  the United Kingdom and a committee  has been appointed to consider the  question of rationing dogs and of kill  ing off certain per centage.

(Gleaned from Daily Press)  - Friday, Oct 25.���������British troops  .-have overcome the enemy along the  whole-front, between the Sambre canal and the Scheldt and their advance  is being continued, Field Marshall  Haig reports. from headquarters.  Since yesterday morning the British  have taken seven thousand prisoners  and more-than 100 guns.  Valuable works of art belonging to  museums -and private- owners in the  regions cf Cambrai, Douai and Valenciennes, now in the hands of the  Germans will be returned undamaged  to their owners' after the war. This  announcement is made-in-a German  government-wireless message received in London.   . ���������  Friday, Oct. 2 6���������The city of Val-  . enciennes is sinking more, and more  into a salient from which the enemy  must soon emerge or lose this famous  vital railroad, centre, full,���������like- the  menaced cityj.of Landrecies, further  t south��������� with memories for the on-  pressing British of valorous deeds' of  their old "Contemptibles" when the  days of August 1914 seemed likely to  spell victory for the Kaiser legions.  Despite the enemy's protestations  about retreating "according to the  principles of war" hardly a day passes without his firing on towns occupied by.'-.women and children. Pie has  shelled Denaine and Lecateau, where  thousands of civilians remain and  three days ago killed or mainmed  fifteen'women and children with a  shell which burstjin the .collar where  they were seeking refuge.  Saturday, Oct 26.���������-Nine thousand  Germans have been made prisoners  and 150 guns have been captured by  the British in their attacks against  the Germans, according to Fielu Marshall Haig's communication. South  of Valenciennes the British have  reached the entire railway'line on the  front between Le Quesnoy and Maing  The French today advanced their  line at all points  despite.tho  most  stubborn resistance. More than 2000  prisoners  with  cannon and machine  guns were captured according to the  official statement issued by the war  office tonight.     The statement reads:  Between the Oise and the Serre our  attacks are continuing with success.  On the Serre front we have succeeded in crossing    the    river    between  Crecy and Mortieres have established  ourselves  on  the north bank of the  river on a width of more than one  kilometre.    East  of  the  Souche  we  have taken important positions. Some  progress has  been made around the  Sissonne-la-Selve road.    On the right  we have penetrated the enemy positions along "Conde-les-Herpy and I-Iill  14 5 and have taken a footing on Her-'  py mill.  Washington, Oct. 2 6.���������The sudden  fiare of activity on the Italian front  attracted attention among military  officials here. It was noted, however  that first official reports from Rome  carefully refrained from describing  the actions as a drive. 300 thousand  prisoners were taken yesterday. The  place selected for the attack indicates  the present operations may be preliminary steps to a major offensive, if  Ihe high ground between the Brenta  and Piave rivers is carried in sufficient force observers believe it might  j be possible for the Italian army to  reach the upper Piave and outflank  the whole Austrian position on the  lower stretches of the river running  from Monte Grappa plateau to . the  sea.  Salonika, Oct. 21���������The Serbians  supported by the French cavalry,  north of the Nish are continuing to  advance, with Belgrade 80 ni.iles a-  way. The food problem with any  army but the Serbian would be difficult. The Serbians advance whether  they have food or not.  Flanders, Oct. 26���������The enemy now  has J 95 divisions.on the western  front, of which 183 are German in  fantry divisions.  .Sunday,. Oct. 27.���������No confirmation  has been received of Swiss reports  that Turkey has surrendered. It is  generally believed, however, that  such action is imminent.  London Oct. 2 6���������British trops  have occupied the villages of Atres  and Flanders, south of Valenciennes,'  and have made progress along the  Scheldt.toward the outskirts of that  town. A German counter-attack  was repulsed at Englefontaine on tlie  northwestern edge of Morma Forest.  A thousand prisoners were taken today.  South of Valenciennes Field Marshall Haig is across the Valenienu'es  le-Quesnow railroad which is vital  to the defence of Mons and Maubeuge  would appear to be near at hand.  The fighting continues bitter with Ihe  British striving to outflank the Normal Forest.  Between Banogue and Herpy the  French have driven forward toward  Montcornet about two miles on - a  front of between four and five miles.  Between the Oise and the Aisne  the French are making rapid strides.  In the last week the Allied troops  in France and Belgium have freed  4 00 square miles of territory from  the grasp of the enemy. Paris estimates that in the last four days the  Germans have suffered a total casualties of 50,000 including 15,000  prisoners.  There was heavy fighting all day  Friday northwest of Monte'.Grappe,  but' the - Italians    maintained    then-  gains. Monte Pertica to the northwest  jvas carried by the Italians.  Monday, Oct. 28.���������Ludendorff  has resigned; army under civil government request terms armstice.  The Kaiser has accepted Luden-  dorff's resignation and declared that  the lower Rhenish infantry regiment  No. 39 commander General Ludendorff long had been, shall bear his  name.  The German reichstag, by a majority has adopted a bill placing the  military command under the control  ol: (lie civil government, according to  an Exchange Telegraph company despatch from Copenhagen.  A crown council under the presidency of the Emepor, lasting several  hears, reached a decision Friday after  noon to send a new note to President  ^ l'son.  The new Teuton note to President  Wilson reads': "The German Government has taken cognizance of the  answer of the President of the United  States. Tho President is aware of  the far-reaching changes which have  been carried out and are being carried out in the German constitutional structure and that peace negotiations are being conducted by a people's government in whose hands  rests, both actually and constitutionally, the power to make the deciding  conclusions. The military powers  are subject to it. The German government now awaits proposals for an  armstice which shall bo the first step  toward a just peace, as the President  lias described it in his proclamation.  (Signed)   "SOLF.  London, Oct. 27���������The important  city of Aleppo in Asia Minor, was ac-  cupied by British cavalry and armour  ed cars Saturday ���������morning, says a  British official statement issued today:  on operations in Syria,and Palestine.1  The statement follows. "Our advanced cavalry and armoured cars occupied Aleppo on.the morning of October 2 6,'after overcoming slight opposition." i  Copenhagen. Oct. -26.���������-A'great'"demonstration in favor of an in dependent Hungary occurred in Budapest  Friday. Thousands of people assembled outside the parliament building  and demonstrated in favor of peace  and-a Karolyi cabinet. Two hundred  officers took part in this inanifcrstat-  ion.  Copenhagen,   Oct.   , 29.-���������Hungary  has definitely revolted forming an independent, anti-dynastic .state.-under  Count Karolyi's leadership, in cu op-v  erafion   with   the  Czechs  and  Jugu-'  Slavs, says a Vienna dispatch to Pol-  itiken.    Count Karolyi, who was elected head of the National Council,  was given an ovation upon his arrival at Budapest.     He told the crowds,  which numbered thousands, that Emperor Karl had refused his program  for a greater degree'  of    separation  between Austria and Hungary. Therefore, an independent state was necessary.  Copenhagen, Oct. 2 9.���������Constantinople  has proposed  a separate peace  for Turkey, according to information  received today.    Turkey    made    tlie'  proposal independently.  Rome, Oct. 29���������Fifteen thousand  Austro-Hungarian prisoners have  been gathered in by the British and  Italian thrust across the Piave River  and the victorious advance has already reached a point ten miles beyond the Piave. Six Austrian divisions have lost more than fifty per  cent,  of their effectives, so  far.'  The Austrian line has been broken  on a wide front and the battle is proceeding on a front of approximately  fifty miles from the Asiago region to  a point on the Piave between Treviso  and Oderso. The attacking froces  are across the Piave on the who!'1,  thirty-mile front between Valdobbi;--  deno and Roncadelle. In the centra)  positions on the Piave the last linos  of enemy resistance have been brok-  ���������en.  TIIE .WOMEN OF FRANCE  In France recently figures showed  that there are now 4 7 5,000 women at  work- in munition factories at $2..00  per day plus 5 0c from the government with 25.(J additional for each  child, if the head of the house is in  the army. Thrift is so strong a principle with French women that:  French banks are carrying larger  deposits than ever before, despite the  fact that $18,000,000,000 towards  the finances of the war came from  popular subscritpion.

Thc Powell River Paper Company  has closed its mills owing to the  prevalence of influenza. This will  create a shortage of white paper and  may result in an even sharper curtailment in the use of news print than  was contemplated under recent government regulations.  COMMttXDABLE  A1 >VERTISINO  We highly commend Mr. S. G.  Freeze's method of advertising winter apples. He not only draws atten-  tention to the grade and variety, but  specifies the season of each variety.  For   instance:  Mcintosh Red���������Season October fo  December.  Jonathans���������Season  November     to  February.  Winter Bananans���������Season October  to February.  This is the education needed by  apple consumers everywhere. It  would be well if other growers followed this example in advertising.  The British Columbia Fruit Booklet  supplied free from this office, contains this information, and any grocer can have a supply of them.���������Bulletin.  0  DISTRICT BOARD OF   TRADE  -^President, Hope Alanson   Secretary, N.
