'  Matsqui Fair A  Financial Success  Matsqui Agricultural Fair a Grand,  Success Financially���������Debt Wiped  Out and Now Piano Belongs to  Association.  That the finances of the Matsqui  Agricultural Association is better  this year than any previous year will  be a' matter for congratulation by the  directors of the association. It enables the prize money to be all .paid  and the debt on the piano wiped out  with still a little cash left on hand.  This is the report of the energetic  secretary, Mr. C. Christianson of Gifford.  With such financial success this  year the Association starts out well  for 1919r which is to be the biggest  fair Matsqui ever knew. ' The directors have passed the word and are  going to have men at the head of it  that will devote more time than ever  to the work of placing that rich farming district on the map so far an  ���������Agricultural fair is concerned. Every  farmer in Matsqui will, be expected  next year to be an exhibitor���������either  large or small. He will be asked  early in the season to contribute;  some have already signified their intention of helping and some prizes  have been promised.  The piano in the hall now belongs  to the Association.

Aside altogether from the element  of patriotism involved in the purchase of the next Victory Loan, its  potentiality as an investment security is of outstanding importance.  This is particularly true of the fifteen  year maturity.  Not only is the 5 1-2 per cent rate  of interest which it yields much hi?.;h-  er than it was possible for an investor in the securities of any stable  Government to obtain in pre-war days  but the Victory Loan is gilt edged in  the fullest sense of the term. True  there has been a substantial increase  in the public debt of the country during the past four years, but, on the  other hand, there has been even a  greater increase in the annual productive value of the Dominion.  Prior to the outbreak of the war,  the normal .spread between the interest rate on Government securities and  first.class mortgages was approximate  ly 2 to 2 1-3 per cent. During the  last two or three years the spread  has narrowed down to about one-half  To ordinary investors-���������that is those  who have sums of from five to twenty  five thousand dollars to invest���������the  meaning of this is obvious.  When war ceases, and the money  markets of the world again return to  normal conditions, the spread in interest yield between Government  bonds and loans on mortgages must  necessarily widen, because of the  higher character of the former type  of security.  The holder of the fifteen-year Victory bonds will, however, still be  drawing the high rate of 5 1-2 per  cent, on a security of the highest  grade. And one, too, that will be  free from taxation.  ,. If pence, came tonight lhe Canadian army mould have  to be fed and nursed i'or over a year before returning hi me.  Your money will do it.

Will you lend your money for this purpose  The proceeds of the loan will provide the cash, produce  products and stabilize industry.  PERSONALS  O"  Ol.  od.

CORRECTION  We printed an article on Size of  Berry Boxes, copied from the Seattle  Produce News.' We.had hopes that  at last the eastern small fruit growers had seen the light and had adopted a uniform package. We hwe long  been impressed with the need of uniformity of method in pack, and package, and welcomed the announcement. We wrote to Ottawa seeking  information corroborative of the announcement, and received the following reply:  "The Seattle Produce News has no  doubt been misinformed as in accordance with the amendment of May 20  last, and which becomes - effective  June 1st next, the use of three- sizes  of boxes is permitted, although the  dimensions of only one box (1 pint)  is defined.  "When the matter of standardizing  berry boxes came up for discussion  at the last conference held at Ottawa  tho representatives of the Eastern  Provinces "were unanimous in their  request for the continuance of the  4-5 quart and 2-5 quart boxes, and  owing to the shape of- these.���������it was  considered inadvisable to define the  dimensions. The pint box was defined in accordance with the wishes of  the B. C. representatives, but it will  still be legal to use the '1-5 and 2-5  boxes of various shapes."  We still advocate the adoption of  the deep pint hallock for strawberries  and sweet cherries. The shallow pint  for raspberries, logans, currants and  loganberries. ' This is the package a-  dopted by our competitors and wo  should meet this competition both in  quantity and quality. The express  charges aret he same. The crates  cost as much, and tlie few berries  needed to make up Lhe difference is  the only bone of contention.���������nnllai-  in.  .(a)  (b)  (c)  The" encouragement which  they derive from the knowledge that the folk at home  are helping win the war.

Some people, may argue wi(h the canvasser that the  money is not now needed. The Canadian Government will  still need every cent of the Victory Loan to carry on. The  400,000 Canadians overseas cannot be demobilized in a  day. . If will take a year to bring them back at the rate  of 30.000 a month. They must be fed and paid during  that period. The government must also have money to  finance the re-construction period. That will lie a national effort of the first magnitude. It will be necessary if the  prosperity of the country, which has been supported by  national war effort, is to continue. And only the loan of  'money is asked for on the best security in the land.  56*13  m  m  W PAGE FOUR  THE AjBBOTSFOKD POST  Miirtmi|iii������"  Exac  KBTJ-M,    ������������������������!!.  ������������������^3 _^  MmMm  i iyrt ��������� m5������  ''rfflF ABBOTSFORD POST  IPublished Every Friday  JL, A.; Bates, .Editor * and Proprietor  FINISH BEEP/ANIMALS r.-      .

It.suggested,that the farmer should not borrow  money with which to buy Victory bonds���������that he should not "inconvenience himself" in lending financial support at this critical  time' in the'history of the nation.  This is not time to think .of inconvenience at home. If inconvenience is to be.the basis of thought, let the farmer consider  first the inconvenience of the boys oh the' firing line in France.  At this particular time it is up to all Canadians to make sacrifices  This is not time to think of comfortable financial circumstances  and freedom from inconvenience, if the boys at the blazinz,  thundrous front are standing in, muddy trenches dodging shell  splinters and Hun bullets and facing the.terrible gas attackes  there is no reason why .the farmer at home should not extend  himself to help out. .  Don't think of inconvenience. Think of the inconvenience  and danger of your son, or your neighbor's son, at the front, buy  Victory bonds to the -limit.

BUY VICTORY BONDS  ������ It would ^appear that Dewdney riding has been divided into  two distinct parts by. the premier of this province, who is also  the representative for-Dewdney���������the.part which he nurses with  fondness and the part which he has, neglected as though it were  a step-child: We are told that hardly, a week passes but that  a visit is made to the-western part of the riding, where it is said  that much money has been spent during the past year. How different, if this be true,- to. the district west of the Stave river  where our premier'hardly sets foot nor listens to any. of the appeals for better roads. With a full to overflowing treasury we  are left.to get along as best we can.. The roads-are.becoming  almost impassable and even dangerous yet although the through  traffic has been'diverted to what the government consider a  municipal road nothing is. given to keep it up. Not. so we are  told in the western, end of the riding, where Honest John thinks  lie is as solid as the Rock of Gibraltar when it comes election  times. However we hope for a change of government after the  next session and let us hope that with that change this part of  the riding will be accorded better treatment.  More   than   1,000,000   Frenchmen  have been killed, in'war and  1,500,-  000  arc physically unfitted  by their  injuries to carry on theirfarm work.  The womon are managing the farms  aud  doing most o f the farm   work.  In  battle  zones, such  as  the  Champagne   district,   women   did   not   forsake  their work    in the fields even  when   German  shells   were  bursting  round  them. When the cannonading  was heavy they lay flat on the ground  and as soon as there was a lull they  would be up attending to their grape  vinos. Tho wives of French  farmers  have always helped their husbands in  the fields. They now do double duty,  rising    earlier    and  working    later.  Horses were conscripted for the army  Mid French women have t aken their  place to draw the plows and harrows.

Attention is directed to a recent announcement published  in the ' Press by the Military Service Branch, Department  of Justice, regarding extensions : to be granted to men  EXEMPTED AS FARMERS.  It is pointed out that this DOES NOT IN ANY WAY  AFFECT MEN WHO HAVE BEEN ORDERED BY THE  REGISTRAR TO REPORT to Depot Battalions and who  have thereafter-received leave of absence from the Military  Authorities. v  Once a man has been ordered to report for duty by the  Registrar he leaves the jurisdiction of the Registrar and comes  under that of the Department of Militia and Defence, and is to  be considered as a soldier. This applies to men of the 20 to 22  Class who have been ordered to report by the Registrar in  virtue of the cancellation of exemptions by Order-in-Council of  the 20th April last, as well as to those ordered to report in the  usual way on refusal of claim for exemption, or on expiration  of exemption granted.  All men, accordingly, who have been ordered to report, and  are therefore SOLDIERS, and who have subsequently been  granted harvest leave by the military authorities, MUST,  NOTWITHSTANDING THE NOTICE ABOVE REFERRED TO, REPORT ON THE EXPIRATION OF  THAT LEAVE, unless they are notified to the contrary by  their Commanding Officer or by general notice published by  the Department of Militia and Defence.

' -' ~  "ESS*  Si THE ABBOTSFORD POST  U.i  A CHANCE FOR CANADIAN  CONSUMERS  Consumers of Canada have now <in  opportunity of ascertaining whether  the prices they pay for foodstuffs are  reasonable and fair or possible extortions by alleged profiteers. All they  have to do in each municipality in  Canada is to ask their municipal  council to investigate the prices ask-  ' ed by retailers and to draw conclusions as to whether these prices arc  fair and reasonable. These Fair Price  Committees .will then .publish their  findings in the form of lists.  In  this  way the   "consumer     will  make sure whether they are paying-  prices   which   are  unreasonable   and  unfair  or- not.   It  may be  that  the  prices which-tho Committee considers  to be fair and reasonable will not be  any   lower   than   tho  present   prices  charged by retailers,    in some cases  they may bo higher.    But that need  ��������� not bother the consumer so long as  he   is  satisfied  through  the  investigation   of   the   impartial   Pair   price  committee within his own municipality   that   I ho   prices   published   lndi-'  cato a fair and  reasonable standard  to  guido  both  consumer and   retailor,   having  in   mind   war  conditions  and the unsettling of pro-war-prices.  If there is a desire on tho part of  consumers to find out just where they  stand In regard to prices which they  have to pay for foodstuffs, they now  have  a  golden   opportunity  to   have  the matter dealt with  once and  for  all under the provisions of the recent  Order-in-Council, fathered by the De-.  partment of Labour, relative to the  appointment of municipal Fair Price  Committees. .  ���������(5n some quarters it is said that  Fair Price Committees will not solve  the food problem present in most  households. It. may be pertinent to  suggest that municipal Fair Price  Committees first should be given a  chance to show' that they can find a  solution before the principle of municipal Fair Price Committees is condemned out of hand. It is a good  rule to support measures that seem  to tend in the right direction.- A similar program has been effected in the  United States.  The virtue of the Order-in-Council  giving authority to municipalities to  appoint Fair Price Committees to investigate the prices consumers have  to pay, lies in the publicity that will  be given to the findings. In this way  public, opinion will be formed, and  enlightened public opinion may be  trusted to co-operate in all-national  food efforts if it knows the facts. You  can always give anything a thorough  trial once.  ASHES AS FERTILIZER  The experience, of many generations of farmers and' gardeners" has  proven the high value of unbleached  wood ashes as a fertilizer, especially  for clover, corn, farm roots and vegetables and fruit - crops : generally.  Wood ashes contain no nitrogen and  supply no humus, but as far as mineral plant food is concerned there is  probably no compounded mineral  fertilizer on the market that is more  effective and more lasting. They furnish potash, lime, phophoric acid���������  the very elements taken from the  soil by the forest trees and, returned  to the soil they will supply, in the  very best form and combinations, the  mineral plant food required by our  crops.���������Experimental Farm Bureau  '������OASOARBTS'' WORK  WHILE YOXJ SLEEP  For   Sick   Headache,   Sour   Stomach,  Sluggish  Liver and Bowels���������*  ' Take Caacarets tonight.

For the fiscal year ending March 31st, 1918, Canada sold on  credit to Great Britain and the Allies more than $46,000,000 worth  of metals, the greater part of which were produced from the  mines of British Columbia. That was more than three times the  average exports for the three preceding years.  The Victory Loan 1917 made this  production possible because it enabled  Canada to give credit to Great Britain  and the allies for their metal purchases  in this country.  Without this market the mines and  smelters of British Columbia could not  have sold-their outputs.  But the mines have had a market  for their ores. The smelters have  turned out, tremendous quantities of  copper, lead and zinc.  This production has not only  brought prosperous times to the miners  but it has been a mighty factor in helping to win the war, for these metals  were absolutely necessary'to the production of munitions in both Canada  and Europe.  ' The Victory Loan 1918 will keep  the good work going. "British Columbia will continue to have a market  for her metals.and other minerals and  these will help to win: the war.  By buying Victory Bonds you enable Great Britain to secure needed  materials for munitions and you help  to maintain prosperity in British Columbia.  ������  /  Issued by Canada's Victory Loan Committee,'  in co-operation with the Minister of IMnaiicc  of tlie Dominion of Canada.  gflfflags'ii'i*^^  PRECAUTIONS AGAINST FLU  1.

Out of that  sum were spent huge sums to finance  (he purchases of the British Government in Canada for food and munitions: Since the war began the ira-  rorial Munitions Board has awarded  contracts in Canada amounting to  $1,200,000,000 and about GOO,000.-  0 00 have been advanced by the Government and banks. Besides that  there were heavy ��������� advances to assist  in the export of Canada's agricultural nroducts.  These suras havie been the cause of  a .tremedous expansion of industry.  Farmers, as well as manufacturers  have been able to sell their surplus  products to Great Britain and to get  the money at once. They have gone  on rautliplying their efforts and doing  their part in winning the war, for  Great Britain had to eat while h.?r  soldiers were away fighting. . In the  past year the Government has advanced 5100,000,000 to finance our agricultural and animal products to Great  Britain. The bacon output was entirely handled out of Loan funds.  And this year there will be some  heavy calls out of the 1918 Victory  Loan. Canada has a surplus of  ch.T-se for export amounting to $40."  000,000.

Perhaps we vn:;>  better understand the tremedous im- |  port of the Victory Loan by comparing the agricultural'and animal exports of the last fiscal year with  four vears ago. In 1015 Canada exported of these $209,000,000; last  year the figures grew to $74 0,000,000  because the Dominion Government  was able to find the money for the  handling of these exports. In manufactures exports have increased from  $8X000.000 in 1915 to $030,000,000  in the last fiscal year. Many great  industries have been built up. The  whole country has felt the impulse to  greater endeavor. This is the spirit  that is winning the war. We must  not let it lag. Subscribe to the  Victory Loan.
