FRASER VALLEY TEACHERS  HAVE EXCELLENT MEETING  (From the Fraser Valley Record)  The Fourth Annual Convention of  the Fraser Valley Teachers' Institute  met in the Mission  City school  on  "Friday last, November 19th.    There  was a good attendance of teachers  and the afternoon session was attend-  ' ed by several visitors.    The chair was  occupied by Mr. Gamble. /  An interesting paper on Senior A-  -.rithmetic given by Mr. D. M Moore  was much' appreciated and provoked  considerable discussion, which, was  led by Miss Mackenzie, B. A., and  Miss McEwen.  This was followed by two papers  on Intermediate History. Miss Mills  gave a paper on Drake and Captain  John Smith. - Mr. Thibault read an  account of the lives of Radisson and  Verendrye. Both papers showed  much painstaking reseach and oc-  cassioned   much   interest.  Then ensued the general business  of the Institute. The following officers were elected for the coming  year: President. Mr. D. M. Moore  Vice-President. Mr. G. D. Thibault;  Secretary-Treasurer. Miss M. Portsmouth: The Superintendent of Education, Dr. Robinson, was elected as  Honorary President; and Inspector  DeLortg as Honorary Vice-President  A vote of thanks was passed to the  retiring officers, Mr. Gamble. (Pres-  dent) and Miss McAdam (secretary)  Mr. Lampard, representing the  trustees, then rose an'd in an able  speech expressed his pleasure in attending the convention and, his recognition of its assistance in the  cause of efficiency. The meeting then  adjourned for lunch.  The afternoon session began with  two Intermediate    History    papers,  .postponed from the doming session.  Miss Hall gave an interesting and detailed sketch of the career of Mungp  Park, and MissMcKenzie read a paper equally interesting on Henry  Hudson. It is the intention of the  Institute to print all the four papers  for the advantage of all teachers  whom they may concern.  A paper on Primary Language and  Nature Study, given by Miss Burpee  of the Provincial Normal School of  Vancouver, was very much enjoyed,  not only by the primary teachers  present who derived inspiration from  it, but by many others who felt that  much ofL what Miss Burpee said could  be applied to other grades than the  primary. ' Miss Elderkin and Miss  Portsmouth discussed this paper as  did also Inspector DeLong and Mr. J.  A. Catherwood.  Finally Mr. Gamble gave a detailed account of the Great War, enumerating its immediate causes and following its developments up to the  present, assisting his hearers with  sketches. Miss Baker, B. A., discua-  sed this paper.  A vote of thanks was passed to all  those who had contributed to the  day's programme.  The convention then closed after a  short address by Trustee Mrs. F. Solloway and others.  In the evning in the Victor Theatre  Professor Davidson, F. L. S. F. B. S.  E., the government botanist at Victoria, delivered a most interesting  and' instructive illustrated lecture on  "Plant Life in British Columbia" A  piano solo was rendered by Miss Helen-Bates,, Miss Hartwell of Vanco-  ver being unable to be present; Miss  M. E. Brown and Mr A. E. Catchpole  each gave a vocal solo, rendered in  a most pleasing style.  ' vThe~'Departm4Vt- '/"of"- ^^Agriculture  will provide a" competent instructor  and pay all expenses.    The local administration  of the pruning; schools  will be placed in the hands-of a:re,-  sponsible! "local   body,   such   as ��������� the  Farmers',,Institute, the Fruit  Growers'  Association or-the    Board    of  Trade,   who  will  be responsible  for  the guarantee of a minimuf of eight  pupils,   (but not more, than twelve)  ���������with the prope.r" qualifications,  at a  fee of one dollar each, to take ten  lessons of three hours a lesson, the  school  extending    over    five    days.  Where the number of pupils in a district  justifies,  two   pruning  schools  may be arranged for, in which the  minimum guarantee will be sixteen  pupils,   and   not     over   twenty-four.  The local organization will aso provide an orchard or orchards,    where  the instructor may .hold the pruing  classes, and a hall o$rooni in which  the lectures may be held.  ���������Besides the actual practice in the  orchard", of which the course will con  sist chiefly where the pupils will  prune' trees under the supervision of  the instructor, there will be lectures  on the theo ry of pruning, which  will include talks on pruning as related to the formation of fruit buds  and to plant growth, also the subject oftop grafting undesirable varieties will be dealt with, along with  many other points of interest.  The pupils will provide their own  pruning tools, the necessary tools being a pair of pruning shears, a saw  and a pocket whetstone. A pruning  pole and a light ladder may also be  necessary for large trees.  ,Tho Department expects that the instructor will be met on his arrival  by some responsible person, who can  provide him'with all the necessary  information, so as to get the school  under way without loss of time.  It hardly seems necessary to present to you the important advantages  to be gained from a pruning school.  Pruning is one of the important operations in the,production of first-class  fruit, and one in which the orchard-  ist cannot have too much information  STRAITON  ,A-MI --  On Friday November 19th the people of Straiton Gave their second concert in aid of the Red Cross. $46.75  has been handed the officers ofl the  Red Cross.

" 'The '47th, headed by D Company,' says Mr. Macdonald's correspondent, 'came thundering into the boat shed, heads up,  shoulders squared, arms at the slope, and looking like a regiment  oh an inspection parade. It was wonderful and inspiring. God  help the enemy when it comes to grips with your western regiments. When one considers that this one had just finished a  railway trip of six days, and should have been dog-tired, their  swing, carriage, overflowing spirits and genuine good nature,  and "never say die" style is all the more wonderful. It was  splendid. I felt as though something had given way. I wanted to  yell, scream, or do something to give vent to my feelings. I  came away feeling tliat the west was 'doing its duty' "  The West is doing its duty these days in the matter of enlisting  and we are proud of the fact. The West is foremost among  the enlisting; foremost among the style and strength of its soldiers; foremost in assistance rendered to the Red Cross; foremost in teaching the rest of the Dominion���������the downeasterners  in the cent belt���������how tp' be patriotic.  1<UR TRADE CONDITIONS  IN AMERICA  One of our great delghts is a newspaper scrap, but we can enjoy one between two other papers just as well if if it were the  real thing with ourselves. The Vancouver World and the Vancouver Province are having it thick and fast. The World makes  fun of the Province service. The Sun chips in sometimes and  gets it both coming and going. The other day the Province  made the public believe that it printed the news one day and the  next day the World printed the same news. This made the World  a day behind the-Province. The Province picked out a hews  item which it hoped the World would have next day. But just  here is where the fun came in as the World had about the identical article in the same day and claims to have had it on the  streets the same day ten minutes earlier than the Province.  Who says there is no fun in the publishing of a newspaper.  _ In a recent article Mr. A. B. Shu-  bert, President of A. B. Shubert. Inc.  Chicago., 111., the largest house in the  world dealing exclusively in American Raw Furs. ��������� states as the reason  for the unusual great demand and  big increase in the price of North  American" Raw Furs as'follows:  The purchasing power of) the people of the United States, is greater  today  than  ever  before' in  history.  Furs are more fashionable than ever  before in history    The demand    of  the dress  and  garment maker's far  exceeded the anticipated, demand   of  the fitters of Fur trimmings were for  orders for Fur trimmings were for  miles, not yards, of all. grades    of  every article of Furs.    The low price  of muskrat created the demand    for  Hudson  Seal, Coats.    A well  made,  good   quality  coat  could  bo  bought  at wholesale for around one hundred  dollars. Weather conditions throughout  the  United States during July,  August and September were extremely favorable for    the    sale of neck  pieces  for   mid-summer  wear,   such  as the very fashionable animal scarf  This  extraordinary demand  fpr  the  Raw Furs and stocks in the hands  of the Raw Fur dealers are practically closed out.    This will unquestionably create a, Dig demand for the  November    and     December    fresh  goods and, no doubt, make the trapping of Fur bearers a very profitable  occupation.  A.

It is a loan to  the whole collective population of Canada, secured upon all the  public and private property in the Dominion.    The interest rate  will.be nearly double that now paid by the Government savings  banks or by the chartered banks.    This is the first time that the  government of Canada has undertaken to float a loan at home.  It has not been usual even to ask for subscriptions abroad with-'  out having some arrangements that it would be underwritten by  bankers and brokers in case public subscription failed.      Mr.  White seems confident of success.    We believe that he would  have been justified in even grater confidence and that he would  have obtained all the money he asks on .terms more favorable to  the Treasury than, he is expected to offer.    But it will be necessary to borrow a great deal more money before the war ends,  and it may be well to give the Canadian people encouragement  to furnish all they can save.

'  MAPLE  RIDGE  NEWS ITEMS  THE MONEY GOES  Poor father has often the blues, the stricken soul within him  groans; the children need eight pairs of shoes, and he has only  seven bones. The good wife needs a Sunday gown, with flossy  gussets, seams and tucks; he'd send her shopping through the  town, or to the mail order houses by parcel post, but he has  only seven bones. The boys are all in need of suits, to clothe  their shapely limbs and trunks, .and he himself wants rubber  boots, but his limit is seven plunks. The blizzards from the  Arctic pole will soon be rolling down again, and the rain pouring  and how can he buy wood and coal, when he has only seven yen?  And there are taxes he must pay, and bills for oil and bills for  gas, and bills for prunes and bills for hay, and bills for pills.and  window gass. Expenses face him every hour; what wonder if  tired father yips, what wonder if his face is sour, when he has  only seven chips? But somehow he will do the trick, and feed  the tribe that on him leans, for good old father is a brick, although he has but seven beans.  Drs.
