FRIDAY, OCT.  1,    1920  $1.00 per Year  DEWDNHY TAKES  FIRST ,  MISSION  FALL FAIR  .The twenty-sixth exhibition of tho  Mission City Agricultural and Arts  Association was held on Thursday  last at tho fair grounds with a very  large number of visitors present and  excellent exhibits on display. It was  a grand success, oven if-the weather  was not all that, was desired; and not.  nil the entries placed on account of  the wet weaLher. It looks as thougn  the present building, .for fruit and  vegetable exhibits will be entirely too  small if the present rate of progress  is persisted in. Those'of the district  who were not present missed one of  the finest exhibitions in the, history  of   tho  Association.  A pleasant feature of the .day was  the district exhibits from Deroche  and Nicomen, from. Dewdney, from  Hatzic, and Mission���������Silverdale will  be in next year from what the residents of that part of .the Mission  municipality say, believing that Sil-  verdale's sun produces* fertility of  soil'unequalled by any other part of  district. ,   ���������  The following prizes were awarded"  att he Misison City Agricultural and  Horticultural Association this year:  Division A.���������Draught Horses���������  Brood mare with foal at foot���������1, N  Nelson; 2.

WAT   IS   NFKDKD   XOW  IS FAIR WF.ATHFR TO  MAKE OUK FAIR A SUCCESS  The question of the disposal of tho  earth thrown out of the big ,Matuqui  ditch came before the council at its  last meeting.       Nobody    wants    the  !earth:   the council  does not  want it  | on the gravelled roads and the fanner  does  not   want  it  at   thoedgo  oi  .his Held, and the question is a voiy  'sore  one  around   Gilford.  In a letter to the council Mr James  of Giffordgave notice that he would  hold the council responsible for all  injuries caused by the ditch digging  while the council on the other hand  disclaim any responsibility for private damage. The dyking engineers are employed by the land owners and all differences, tlie council  thinks,   should   be  settled   directly.  The council have accepted the responsibility of maintaining a deserted wife of Matsqui with twins and  a little girl. The Vancouver orphanages are apparently ali full and her  care of the small family prevents  her taking on other work.  Tlie complaint came before (lie  jouncil that fishermen, without licences Were peddling lib in the municipality, and the four offenders, will be  notified that they have to .take out  pedlar's   licences.  Twenty-one from Glen Valley sent  a petition about the roads.     Councilor Keay will take the matter in hand  of seeing what can be done.  Councillor Bell will introduce a  local improvement bylaw for Ward  Four for the purpose of borrowing  $5000, $1000. of which is to be spent  on the Sim road and $4000 on the  Page, Turner and Harris East roads.  The  next   meeting  of  the  council  Saskatchewan  tried     "government  control"  for     eighteen     months Tt  then   voted   it out by a four to one  I majority. Are we going to take on in  U C what Saskatchewan has already  t.*ied out and condemned? 0*  Many instances can be, quoted to  show that it fays to patronize the  local fair of your district. It is a  good habit to get into���������that of making an exhibit at the  fall  fair.  Exhibiting "at the Abbotsford-Su-  mas fall fair'shows that you are  proud of your district, proud of the  products of your farm or home and  that as a citizen you rank'among all  "who would encourage the settlement  of the district by- men and women  like yourself, who appreciate a good  thing when they see it.  We want settlers, all through "the  Fraser Valley during our lifetime,,  for we all know that our climate and  our soil are such that it is pleasant  and profitable' to live here. The way  to encourage-, settlers is to have a  good fall fair. The prize winners  get their names published, not only  in the local .paper but also in the  coast, papers. -These papers circul-,  and it often happens that good sales"  are made through this kind of advertisement; and' it is the* makings of  any district to have the name of having a good fall fair. . j  Last week .on the grounds at the  Victoria exhibition the report spread  that a woman who had'an exhibit at ���������  that fair had received $.1000 for      a  gladioli bulb���������the fiower-was   tpurc  white and took tiie fancy .of an "east- {  erner. who was also fond of flowers ���������  vVe don't expect such visitors at our j  fair  but  thy^As "given   to , show  the'.  vaiue of "exhibiting at"'a,, fair.'      ...    |  Let all Who can exhibit on Tuos- |  day next and  make the Abbotsford-  Sumas fair a grand success.  Next year this district should aim  to take'an exhibit to the New Westminster  fair.  When  prohibition  became   law  in  B. C. we had no power to deal with  importation. We have no power in B,  C. even now. But the Dominion house  has since enacted legislation enabling  the provinces to vote on iinportay  tions. If we now endorse prohibition we then can have a vote on the  importations.

Victoria, Sept. 24.���������"I'm not saying anything," declared Premier  Oliver when asked what is the intention of the Provincial Govern-.  ment in the matter of an early election.  Rumor has been rife for some  time past to the effect that the Government intends to bring off a general contest sometime before the end  of the year. ;  These rumors go to the extent of  definitely fixing the date as of November 23 next.  Premier Oliver was asked whether  he would say an election would or  would not make any statement ex-  wold notu make any statement except the above, refusing either to af-  to avoid rotting,, provision should.be  made for air to pass underneath and  through them. If they are stored In  considerable or large quantities such'  provision is mado by koeping the potatoes about six inches off the floor  by., first putting down a slatted temporary floor with tho boards just  close enoughso that the potatoes will  not fall through, and a. similar slatted temporary wall a few inches.from  tho permanent wall would permit a  Btlll freer circulation of air. Keeping them in crate like boxes with  openings between the boards on tops  and sides is a good method.  Beets, parsnips, carrots, salsify  and turnips keep best under conditions somewhat similar to potatoes,  though it is not so important to keep  them dry. Indeed in the average cellar they are liable to become too dry  and loso  their firmness.  If there is,  Onions are very liable.'to rot unless  kept in a dry place. Keep them  spread out as thinly as possible.  Where quantities are small, an attic  i-oom where there is no frost will  be found a good place to store them.  Cabbage will soon wilt in a warm,  dry cellar. Keep them outside as long  as possible by protecting them with  leaves, straw or soil. If they begin to  crack before it is time to pull them,  loosen   them  Uieplant ana mus checking  growth. When stored where the air is  very dry they keep better with the  roots and stems left on, and'wrapping each head in a newspaper will,  prevent wilting to  some  extent.  Celery is left outside until danger of severe frosts." To keep Well  in storage it needs a moderately dry  well ventilated cool cellar for- best  results. The celery should be planted in the cellar in rows close together in sand or light soil, separating  each row with a lath or other pieces  of wood to keep the tops somewhat  apart and' better to ensure a circulation of air. The soil should be kept  moist but the tops dry. Avoid wetting the leaves and stalks if watering  is necessary. ���������  To store green tomatoes to ripen  them put in closed boxes or drawers  where they will be in, tho dark and in  a moderately warm place.  Four provincial penitentiaries out  of five have been closed through  prohibition. Let's make a job of it.
