I  james   Mcelroy,  BERNARD McELROV,  Propriotora  I the seciretiar.Vd work, which it has  beem found most satisfactory ��������� to  leave to 'looal arrangement.   -  The feapansQble organization^ hi  eaoh case will be required to guarantee a m'jn'imum of 12 pupils, but  mat more than! 15, with the proper  qualifications, at a fpe'of three dollars eaoh, tof take the 12 lessons of  two and a-half hours a lesson, the  school extending over one week  In..a Mmited nnm|bei' of districts a  double packing school "can be arranged far, an wihich the minimum  guarantee will ^be 24 pupils, but  -not more 'thai* 30, for the same  number of lessons. .The guaranteeing organization will also arrange  far aind bean, the expervset* of lh������  hall, its"heiatiinig! and lighting.  The.hJall far 15 pupils must be it  least' 30 ft. by 15 ft., aind well lighted. It must bej cheated sufficisntly  to prevent' ohiilltoig of fingers of  the packers iaindi to prevent fr^ey.-  'ing of 'the fruit at night;  Tho Department 'will as rar as  possible use local fruit. At fhe  time of making ��������� application, tor  bhe packiing school.you are re-  quested-to reserve fruiit at the rare  5 of - '2 l-^-'iior'S^boxes - psff.-.pupvi. ..-.T,he  hardier,varieties, such as Ben Da-  v:s,^ are preferred.; Fruit must.be  in goiod conditioh, but-'-need net  be graded and none- s-nould ��������� run  urnder 21-4 imchea.. in diameter. The  Departmemt will pay. the legitimate market price' for. this fruit.- If  local fruit cainaxot be secured, the  Depeartment should be expressly  motified and will undertake to  3ecure same.  The imistiructor will bring with  him the mecessary packing tables  aind fruit paper. The. Department  expects that 'he; will be met onhis  arrival by-some responsible person,  who should provide him with all  mecessary information, so) as 'to get  bhe school under way without loss  of time  It seems hardly, necessary to  present to- you the important 'advantages to be ga'iined from the  padding school, particularly In fhe  way of practical/ and thorough in--  structikHn in 'actual commercial  ipacbtog.  Pupils will learn in; addition, a  good deal >about the methods and  equipment used by the m,ost progressive Associations, will tiso  [r>arn a good deal of the interpretation of the, Fruit Marks Act, and  will Ieainn- a igreat' deal of value  about exhibition packing by attending the packing school for in~  struot-.'idn.

Abbotsford Footballers Defeat  the Latter in a Decisive  Manner  Time makes -a change and he  w'ha' laughs Last' laughs best. Thin  applies to the Abbotsford Football  Team's success at Chiliiwack last  week. Several years ago the Ab- .  botsford team, when- it wad 'iirst  organized, paid Chiliiwack a Msir  and in its youthful vigor XDut up a  most excellent garnet but was beaten to 'a frazzle, by the Chilliwac-  kers. Those who went on that  trip;..from Abbotsford with the  team werre'inot' highly" delighted���������  in fact, if out newspaper file mtLi-  prets us aright- again, it was considered tihe boys were not urn o;;  as square a deal as they might.  and the supporters of our home  team .are deligihted to find that  after' thorough organization and  some good practice,, the home  team come out with honours of  two to. omef in'their favour. Next  time Abbotsford .go-os to Chilliwac*  it is hoped that Chi'.iiwack will be  the proud possessor of a r blank  score.  The Post congratulates the    A-b-1  botsford boys on their victory, and  believes   the    -town  possesses   -ihe  best team inj the valley.  MATSQUI SCHOOL BOARD.

We have the  land; we (have or can soon get, the  farmers^ We have also,' thanks to  the land policy of the govea-nim^nt,  plenty of momey in the treasury,  and coiri, get more if we need it, on  favorable terms. Nothing is lacking 'bo change the name of British  Columbia from a "sea of raoaci:-  aiim-s," to a sea of grain or other  farm produce but a little assist-  aince granted 'at the right time to.  those who 'are eager to undertake  the tira/nisformationi. It costs money to clear land in this province,  but the land is the best on earth  when it is cleared. A little assistance at the start would enable the  people of our cities tu secure home  grown produce at reasonable prices.���������The  Interior  News.

Clan  "B" is for doinjr the best concrete work (the size  makes no difference). Clan "C" is for sending In tho  best and-clearest description of how any piece of  concrete work was done.  THERE will be four prizes (First. -MQ} Second,  $25: Third, 515) Fourth, $10) in each class  In each Province.
