EXCEEDS $100,00.00 MAHK  Mission and  district including all  the  district  eact  as  far  as Derc'h-j  and west to the Stave River, excelled itself in tho. raising of its share  .of the Victory Loan of $100,000. At  first it- seemed a stupendous task for  the   district   to   raise   that   amount  but ihe spirit of 'we must'reach the  limit' became so-imbued in the residents that p"ci' that amount ha<3 been  reached ai'.d o  few dollars to spare  Tlie latest amount available as w-  go   to   press  is   $101,300,   but  it  i*  hoped that the exact figures will be  available next week.  Last year the amount reached a  bout $60,000,but why it was put at  $100,000 this year and others not  raised too is an unknown fact hut  we have the satisfaction of saying  that  the  district  made  good.  Mission and district always makes  good and the present instance is no  exception. We make good in war  and in peace.

Next  year this show will be held at Mission  To awaken a deeper. interest in  poultry in this district, the Mission  Poultry Association are holding a  small local show at Mission on Dec.  19th. A committee met last night  to arrange a prize list. The chief  difficulty in the way was a-financial one. It was finally decided to  pav prizes on the percentage basis.  Twenty per cent, of the entry money  will be used for expenses and 80 per  cent, divided among the winners in  each  class.  Several special prizes are o ffered  and it is hoped that contributions  will be received so t hat these specials may be of a somewhat generous uature.  Competition is open to Mission and  district and the Municipality of Matsqui. Prizes are offered for all standard varieties of poultry. There are  two classes of competitors���������novice  and open. The novice class shall  consist of all who have never taken  a prize for poultry at any show and  all boys and girls, under 18 yearn of  ago. Competitors in the'novice-class  can compete in both novice and opon  classes on payment of one entry fee  for each bird entered.  The entry fee shall be 25 cents  for single birds 'and $1.00 for pens.  Pens to consist of one male and three  females. Birds entered singly may  compete as pens.  The co-operation of all interested  in poultry is asked. If you have  only a few birds send at least two  and help make this show a success.

Largo business firms are also planning,     The   various    countries     who  uavo helped   fo  win  the  war are already in tho fast race.

British Columbia is rich in timber,  r*cli in coal, rich in all the minerals  oacd in all kinds of trades and enterprises,   rich   in  climate,  rich   in  soil,  ���������'ich in fisheries, and why should the  province not  be prosperous , during  the coming prosperous days?    There  tst only  one   reason,   (hat,- is   lack   of  Miking advantage of the opportunity,,  ������s   none   of   our   resources   have   as  ������et reached the peak of development.

In   the   first   place,   purebred  stock is best.    They should be from  a   good   laying' strain.     They  should  be from good healthy parentage and  for winter egg    production,     pullets  only and early pullets should be kept  J n an experiment conducted at one of  the    Branch    Fxperiniental    Farms  where   four   different   ages   of   birds  WiCrc in  competition   for   winter  egg  production,  it was  found   that early  pullets prdouced eggs at an average  cost of  1G.7  cents,  lat.c pullets  28.2  cfiits, two year old hens 1)5.1 cents,  three year old hens $8.70 per dozen,  figures   somewhat   similar   fo   those  could  he procured  in larger quantities.    The early pullet is the only bird  that f;hould( be  kept   for -winter egg  production and if is tho winter ogys  that pay.     A dozen of eggs at'Christmas time is worth two or. three dozen   in   May   or   June.     IL'arly   pullets  mean early eggs and early chicks in  the  spring 'which   of   course   means  early pullets in tlie fall.    As a rule,  pullets that lay earliest are the best  layers so that,-every pullet that lays  before Christmas should.-be marked.  They  are your  best  layers,    if- you  are killing off year' old hens, do not  kill hens that moult, late in the fall.  They, are your best-layers'.and with  y.our   best   layers   should' always   be  mated   with   male   birds   from   good  layers.-    The male is more .than half  the lioclc.    ..A male from a good,laying strain and .especially from a- good  laying mother, will do more to build  up   tho   laying  quality   of   the  flock  than   any  other  one   thing.       Don't  use then for. breeding purposes, cockerels whose pedigree you know nothing about.     Better pay a good price  and get a good bird.  Vanderhoof, Oct. 31.���������It Is now  generally known that the Braesido  and ISngen districts of the Nechako  valley has been converted-into a large  Monnonlte colony, and that already'  200 followers of this peculiar'organization have brought all their p'os-  essions from the prairie provinces  and the United .States and settled  permanently in the districts referred  to.  These people aro delighted, with  the richness of the soil and its unique  agricultural advantages, particularly  in a mixed farming country, to such  a degree that- one of tho leaders said  that, "in a few years to come land  in this district will not be purchased  at- $75 per acre. These people, be  ing' practical farmers, know choice  land when they see .!t, and can fully  appreciate its value.  A prominent railway colonization  agent has made tho statement that  settlers living ten or more miles away  from the track were not much asset  to a railroad company. Why?,Boca use settlers were too far away from  the railway and market, to be able fo  raise produce and make a, reasonable  .profit. Picture flic scene: German-  speaking Monnonitcs occupying t.ho  choice lands close to the railroad and  the settlement area, reserved for the  returned soldiers -10 miles away from  the track up in the Stuart Lake country.

Promptness in. answering-the telephone is a mark of  courtesy shown the caller, it is also a help to the operator for it enables her to complete the call and to give her  attention to others.  Telephone calls should be answered promptly, for  sometimes the calling person does not wait and "hangs  up".

Many have grown potatoes this  year who never did so before, and  consequently will he unfamiliar with  the best methods of protecting ��������� the  crop.'  Owing to the excessive rains potatoes in some districts have become infected with rot, and many have been  harvested under unfavorable conditions. ' In many instances they have  been, stored in cellars before being  properly dried. Potatoes showing  any indication of rot should not be  stored with sound ones. This is especially true if there are abnormal  conditions of moisture, as such conditions will cause a greater activity  of the fungus and, consequently,  quicker rotting of iie potatoes.  Potatoes should be -. stored in as  dry and cool a place as possible, with  out freezing. The drier they can be  kept the less rot will develop.  This year, ���������*especially, potatoes,  should be carefully sorted within  from three to' four weeks after storing in the cellar, those showing any  signs of developing rot- being dicard-  ed.

Paper Controller About to Order Cutting' Off Of Unpaid Subscriptions  At a public hearing ih Ottawa  last week in connection with paper  conservation, .the Paper Controller  for Canada intimated that regulations about to be issued would include  one to the effect that:  Publishers of papers must cease  sending their newspapers to subscribers three months in arrears unless  subscriptions be definitely renewed  and all arrears fully paid.  The reason for this regulation of  the Paper Controller is that it is the  practice of some publishers fo send  their papers until ordered stopped  and this practice frequently means .a  failure to collect anything for subscriptions in arrears, in which case  there is a virtual waste of paper. It  is fo prevent waste of paper that the  new regulation has been decided on.  TO CONSTIPATED CHILB  The main street at Silverdale is lo  be ^ravelled by the municipality not  the government.  ,.

According to Franklin, the   "Road to   Market"   was
"plain" even more than a century ago.
The years have brought a succession of improved
methods of travelling on the same old road, however and
now the former weary time and distances have been
Just as gasoline, steam and electricity have shortened the distance between London and Liverpool   New-

team for a thousand-mile trip if a fast express train an
automobile, an airplane were available; nor would you
choose a fast horse to travel a forty-mile distance if a
1< ord car were available.
m So it is in travelling on this "Road to Market'" You
might find your market SOMETIME by using the ox-team
sort of publicity���the poster, sign board, etc., and other-'
cheapo mediums, but why not eliminate time and distance
and annoyance and disappointments by taking the fast

Nelson, with populations over 6,000
are thus described, and its inhabitants directoried, equally with the
smaller settlements on flic hanks of
the Upper Skcena, with only half a
dozen inhabitants.
A clasified business directory, with
all the business men of Ihe province
classified under 1,035 different classi-

business mailing list of the province.

manufacturer or agent in British Columbia who makes or handles the required line of goods.
As part of the programme to make
the work -useful to the business interests of-the province at a time when
it is attracting attention abroad, the
publishers are planning to distribute
copies in the leading hotels and reading rooms in the United States.
The very remarkable work has one
more point of distinction, inasmuch
as the new British Columbia directory published by tlie Wriglcy Company has been put into type, printed
and bound in .the city of Vancouver.
The volume is an evidence of the excellent work local publishers can produce in the art of book production.

An American spending his holidays
in County Roscommon. Ireland, fell
into conversation with a farmer who
was feeding his hens.
"I guess, Pat, you haven't as good
hens as. we have in the States."
"Perhaps not," said Pat.
"I'll t II you," said the Yankee, "a-
bout a hen my mother had. She
went otu one day and ate a feed of
corn, and returned and laid twelve
eggs. She went out the next day and
ate a feed of corn, and laid twelve
more eggs. She went out. the third
day and returned and laid twelve
more eggs. She went out the fourth
day and hatched seventy-two chicks
out of thirty-six eggs. Now, that
is the hind of hens we have in the
"Well", said' Pat, "I'll tell you a-
Jbout a half-blind hen my mother had.
She ate a feed of saw-dust thinking
it was oatmeal. She    went to hei
nest and laid a plank twelve loot

Ife^^&^^^^^^^^^^^^S^i^^^W^M^^^^^^B^^Si Fraser valley record'  ���������THE ABBOTSFORD POST '  Published Every, Friday  i  J. A. BATES, Editor, and Proprietor  FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 29, 1 9IS  When tho Oliver govenimouf, hns piis'sod out of power, which will ho after the Jie.vi. eleclion, there will bo  ono outstanding fonturo fo remember it hy when the  hiutoriiuiM, the people, begin io record (he doings of  our wiirtinic govorniiicnt. That outstanding featuro  will bo Ihe Oliver government's neglect of its obliga-'  ' tlons to the province- ��������� obligations thai aid in the set.  tleinont of the country mid'maintaining 'business ������<ii  usual' during war fimo; and asvny and above this will  be the renieiubninco of double taxation at a time when  the people^ needed all their energies fo help win the  war.  Wo know how I lie Oliver government has neglected  our.roads nnd trails in Dewdney. It must be the same  in other parts of the province. Wo read in the Vancouver SUN "that settlors in large numbers ha'vo been  driven out of the Prince George district, although they  were men of splendid pioneer stock and possessed of  capital." This is not in accordance with the policy as  announced years ago by Honest John'when he inherited the leadership of the opposition after i\Jacdonald resigned. Then lie was Quite loquacious about what  should bo done for the new seltler.  The other point of double taxation came as a thunderbolt upon the people of the province who had remained at home ^t.o carry on." And when a full treasury was attained tlie government sat Light at Victoria  and perhaps ridiculed ihe many requests of the people  for just tho small necessary expenditure's.  After the soldiers come home John wont he worth  the powder very long, but digging potatoes on the.  Delta can be put into full swing again. ���������  The war looks ended when we read of the hoys coming home. Some have been promised jobs, some hayo  signified (lioir intention of going or. to the land while  other will be looking for 'jobs. There has been much  said of what should be done for the returned soldier  hut it seems to us that it will he a case of get. out and  hustle in British Columbia, unless some arrangements  are under way that * we know nothing of. AVe see no  great praparations being made for the future of our  boys, by the government. 'Will some one not tell the  Premier that the"Avar is over and that the boys will  soon be home, and that he must put a stop lo the talking and show something of real value, for them.  The great Victory Loan was a grand success���������  grander than we thought. It shows that the people of  Canada are quite in accord with the idea of making  provision for the return of the-soldiers after the war.  Tho people have put it up to the governments.  In reading our exchanges which have arrived since  the close of the Victory Loan, one cannot but help  admiring the patriotism and pride of the different  parts of the province. The patriotism and pride in  what the district are in each case legitimate. Away  up in Northern B. C. a little community did oxcellent  in subscribing for the Victory Loan. They excelled  themselves, and (hen cogratulafe themselves by saying  something like following 'lev/ places in the province  will make and better showing.' fin anothor place a-  bout the same size the people show their pride by  stating that it is 'another record for the whole Dominion." Another community says of itself 'we question if it can be boat in the whole of Canada.'  It would seem that each fonmpjnity during the Loan  started out to do its mightiest, forgsUing that other  communities were doing the s:>mo. It was this kind  of spirit which placed the loan double to what the  government asked for.    All honor to Canada.  An ex-president of the United States once said that,  the people wanted rest and reassurance."  The kind of "reassurance" that best fits in with the  typical business man, however; is the reassurance that  comes to a man who is fighting-���������and winning; who is  struggling���������and Lightening his grip on things.  Me can find no reassurance whatever in reaction, in  "rest", in slopping the strife. These things appeal  only to tiie typo of-man described by another American  statesman as "weakling."  The business man does not shirk strife and struggle  ���������but he objects fo the fight being "fixed," to less than  "a square deal."  ft is Just at this time when "rest" is the objective of  the incapable business man, and the struggle the daily  lot of theh capable one, that new alignments are in the  "making" in the business community. Soon there will  emerge a "revised" roll-call of successful men, from  the stress and press of unfavorable business conditions. If will contain the names of those who found  their "reassurance" in the light, not In "rest". .It will  contain the names cf men who, under nnfavoring conditions, developed into judicious advertisers, aggressive users of newspaper space; and it will not contain  the names of any business men who concluded that  advertising cost too much when times were dull.  and a half.    Their, the head goes to  the commission  merchant.    I.-le lives on Riverside    Drive    and    pays  $2,000 a year for his apartment, and keeps an automobile.    Ho spends $7.,000 a year to live.    Next the- cab-  ' bage is sent to the wholesaler.     He lives on West End  1 avenue.     He pays $1,800. for. his apartment and keeps  a. seven passenger car.    He sends tho cabbage fo the  jobber "who   lives  in  an   apartment  which ��������� costs   hliu  $1,000 a year���������on Broadway, keeps an/automobile and  spends- $5,000 a yer.r.     From him the cabbage goes to  tho retailer, who lives in a $700 apartment on a side  street, has la corner store for wliicji  he pays $12.j i.  month  rent, keeps two delivery  wagons at a cost of  $ NO a month, and spends $2,500 a year on living. Kin-  ally the cabbage gets to'the consumer.    He lives in an  ' apartment for which lie pays $40 a month. He rides in'  'the trolly car or fhe-sub-way,  he spends all  he  can  make or a little more to live, and he pays 13 cents for '  that'head of cabbage.  Tho cost of living would be reduced if the farmer  and:ihe consumer eliminated the middlemen and dealt  direct. ,  maBBsxssEaamimmm'Mii.m'm.i.ti.-  When the present government took' over the P.O. 13.  this paper called attention to the fact that if was very  likely it would make enough election ,material',.by the  time the next election came around to make things  good and interesting.. If looks as though that might  bo the case and the Oliver government will have to  do some tall explaining to. satisfy a critical public.  The leader of the opposition cannot keep his secret  any longer and he has given a story to the press. The  Critic of Vancouver has,the folloAving fo say:  "There is a million dollar smile, a,million dollar  girl, a million-dollar baby, and now l.lrilish Columbia-has a.mililon dollar boob. -His name is Honest  John, ��������� Premier of British Columbia, who drove a  hard and fast -.bargain with Messrs Foley, Welsh  and Stewart, owners of the iP. G. E. Hy., by which  the province was .to obtain ownership of this road  and all its equipment, supplies, plant, etc.  "Through an .error in i:e-writing the draft agreement, .the clause relating to atschedule of all equipment .to .be taken oyer:by the government was omitted and a blanket .clause, substituted that evidently  under the law did not stand tlie, test, and Messrs  Foley, Welsh and Sewart, or Iheir agents, have  gathered up all the equipment along the right of  way and either .sold .it, .or had it shipped to the  United States.  "Acting-Premier Little Lord Fauntleroy Parris  declines fo give any explanation, and says that  Hones.t .John has his explanation prepared for the  next session of the legislature. The.agreement was  drawn up by a Victoria firm of Liberal lawyers.  Evidently they are living up to their Liberal principles. We should expect, however, lhat after the  agreement y/as perfected, that it would have passed  through the hands of the attorney-general. If it  did, it simply passed through his hands; his eyes  saw it not.  "The legislature then enacted an act legalizing  the agreement, and the Liberals praised Honest  John for having made a. good bargain, and Honest  John has passed into the million dollar class.  "W. J. Bowser has been carrying this news in his  hip pocket for many weeks, but he evidently could  not wait for the opening of    the    house    before  springing it, so he sent the story to his favorite paper, the Province.     Surely British Columbia should  thank the fates that gave us Honest John as Premier, THE MILLION DOLLAR BOOB."  As most people understood  the  agreement at the  time it was lftade the equipment was to pass into the  hands of ho government.    The best laid plans of men  and mice���������  It may be that the Premier may have an explanation  of the matter that will satisfy both the leader of opposition and the people, and he may not. The next  session will tell.  A down east editor has fathomed the reason why  men do not go to church. He has seven reasons, to  wit.  The Sunday newspaper, the automobile,, tiresome  and dry sermons, the collection baskets, failure to  reach the barber shop on time Saturday night, misplaced collar buttons and the lure of the Sunday morning  nap. Almost anyone should be able to select an excuse from this list.  A Nova Scotia farmer got up early the beginning of  the month to build the fire and dropped dead before  he had accomplished. No wife who really loves her  husband, in these days when husbands are so hard to  get, would permit him to incur such a risk.  The war has taken the "un" out of nearly everything  but  unconditional surrender.       An  unsinkable  ship has been snk, an unbeatable army has been beat-  -en, and "the unscrutablp. has been unscrewed."  Gormany's greatest work of art is that final "bust"  of tho kaiser. ,  The following reason is given for the high cost of  living in New York. It.casts much illumination upon  the much discussed high cost of living. A cabbage is  raised by a farmer in Connecticut. The comparatively  small farmer will send 1800 to 2000 heads of cabbage to Nov/ York.    For one head lie receives a cent  Germany has always misrepresented. She misrepresented the power of her army; she had not the true  conception of her navy; the Kaiser was to cook his  Barter eggs in Paris this year; when she signed the  arniBtice she was ahungering, so she told the world,  but it is found that food has been hoarded in Germany  and they have enough food for the winter.  There will be no subs when the Yanks are yanking  their soldiers back from France.  ext Iss  irectory 'Closes JJec  , IT you are contemplating taking new service or making any changes in your present  service, you should send in notification in  writing,not later than the above date in order  (hat you may be listed in; the new directory.

Hodge of the University of B. C.  was intensely interesting and took  the   from  of  an  illustrated  lesson.  First he represented British Columbia as a block of earth which was  fiat and even, many geological periods ago. Over this our Fraser River ran. Then the block crumbled  up and formed an arch. The Fraser  Uiver fought and broke its way  through. The arch broke and a central triangular piece fell down leaving two main highlands���������the Rockies and the Selkirks. Down the p<xm  of least resistance came the Fraser  Gradually a valley was formed and  then a still newer one in the old one.  In time came the Glacials, or  Pleistocene period. This was due  to an excessive amount of rainfall,  and snow which did not melt. Year  by year snowfields were formed; several united and covered a large part  of North America. Water cuts a V-  shaped valley, glaciers cut U-shaped  valleys. The glacier cut the former  V-shaped Fraser Valley to a U-shape.  The over-deepened sides of the glacier  became  lakes.  "When a glacier melts it gives up  the boulders, pebbles and silt it had  collected.    A great valley was gradually filled by silt which the streams  carried down from the glacier.    This  made good farming land.    The glacier  dammed   up   the  mouth  of  the  Fraser,  and  also  the North Thompson  at  Kamloops.    The  Fraser now  had ot work hard and cut away some  si its, thus making a lower valley with  silt lands'on each side.    In time Valleys were cut, one in the other, until now, we have several benches oi'  terraces  along  the  Fraser.       Quantities of this silt was carried to the  sea and formed a great delta in the  estuary up as far as Hope and from  Seattle to Vancouver. The land could  not hold up  this enormous quantity  and so bent down.    The sea came in  and made Georgia Strait. Burrard Inlet  was once an old distributary of  the Fraser River.
