What the  board can do for this town! is not  to be estimated in dollars amd cents  It can do a lot v,and< if fully alive  to the situation will be the^ meana  of putting Abbotsford on the map  for all future tim'e.  One of the  mabters  brought up  at the board and: dealt with should  receive the support of every property holder in the town.   ,We reier  to. the  lighting  of  the town.   Six  lights sure is   a  small num;bei\ out.  it is  a  start.   Once this number, of  lights have been subscribed for and  in running order there will undoubt  edly  be  other  lights  that  will  be  wanted, and wll be subscribed for.  "We are of the opinion now< that a  rate   has   been   secured   from- the  company, that there are people m  Abbotsford that will guarantee one  light  each.   The  cost  is  but little  when the convenience is considered.  When Mr. Higginson goes around  to secure subscriptions it is to be  hoped that he will be recieved in  such a manner that.he will beabifc  to'say to the board andf the company that the town will have twice  the number of lights that it was  at first thought or planned.  that the heart desires. The child  with the most, toys is the least  contented. And in this case above  all others the child is father of the  man.  "Men-a/ndi women are forever  wanting^ A new car, or a-' new  house, - a new horse, or a neu  franchise, a new set of furs, or n  new hat, and in the United States  particularly a 'new husband or a  newt wife And 'when "the want is  gratified the happiness it brhigu ih  momentary and 'selfish.  "Unquestionably it is true tnat  rich people are becoming more plen  tiful than ladies and gentlemen.  Vulgar individuals decorated with  precious stones sail'down our city*  streets or crowd our drawing rooms.  And our eyes are so dazzled, that  we c/verlook their defects as men  and women, and yearn to gov anu  do likewise.' The country Is full  of people who are cultivating a  champagne taste on a beer salary.  Their determination to get rich overrides ail morality, all reason���������and  there are consequences, often rude  and terrible.i"���������Saskatoon  Star.  D, G. M.

MATSQUI COUNCIL  (Continued From Page One)  THE CRAZE FOR MONEY  If 'we could "blot out the; mental  impressions that the possession of  money  necessarily  brings   happiness, fewer cases of embezzlement  would reach the police court, so  thinks the Toronto News.   "But if  is   drummed  into   our   ears Jrom  childhood   that  getting  money  is  the proof of sccessfuul living, that  the man deserving of our imitation  is one who by any meansv has amassed    a    million   dollars.

(Prom Fraser Valley Record)  'The above match was played' at  Deroche on ���������Saturday last, on the  grounds of..Mr. (P. Tremblay. A  large'number of spectators .wLtmea-  sed one of the best games of Ihe  season.  Abbotsford 'kicked    off *and   at  once became' aggressive,    but the  Deroche  backs proved    equal    to  the occasion, Smith aind McMicking  being particularly prominent.   The  Deroche forwards then took up the  attack aind- shots   from Howie,   C.  Anderson   aud' McNeil   were successfully handled by the Abbots-  ford custodian,'.)   Deroche still continued to press, amd   a   fast shot  by- H.vAnderson was handled"by-the  Abbotsford1- back  in- the   penalty  area.,'   C. Cooper took the kick and  a - goal resulted..-Immediately afterwards Davit't was'successful with  a long shot, which the goalkeeper  misjudged, and Deroche were two  goals up.[   Time after time the Abbotsford, forwards  tried  tov penetrate the Deroche defence, bat C.  Cooper, McMicking and Davitt were  in grand- form..  Half time arrived  with Deroche leading  by  two  to  nil.   After ������the lemon interval some  exciting play was Been.   The Deroche forwards led by McNeil, H.  Anderson and' Home, gave a good  exhibition _of the passing game, and  the Abbotsford goal was repeatedly dn danger.   After S, Malcolm and  "Home had ''dribbled the ball nearly  the length of the field the latter  passed 'toi McNeil, '^who' cleverly eluding several 'opponents scored  a  grand goal.   From the kick-off the  Deroche forwards, now combining  beautifully,  made  another  attack,  but  the Abbotsford back  with .a  ta-emen'dou'sf kdck,L sent the ball.up,  the field,  >a' forward fastened on  to Hie ball and aeoj-ed for A.bbot%-  f ord; offside'Was appealed for but  the , referee gave in favor of the  viisitorsv.

SERINS ILLUSTRATED  BY MOVING PICTURES  The moving picture machine has  now found its way into churcli in  some\ western states where its educational value has been recognised.! To be sure it is only, the more  "progressive" clergymen who have  adopted the new idea, but one of  the big film producing concerns  of New York feels so iconfident  that the demand for films of religious copies will become general  that it has sent Its manager to London to gather da'ta for religious  ideas from the British Museum, arid  frcm other sources.  Those clergymen who have adopted the moving picture as an, aia  to. their work;the.manager explain  ed in an interview, "make, use of  the pictures to illustrate their sermons,   The   films, -of   course,   are  chiefly biblical  scenes,   and  illu's-  .trate  certain   scriptural J:exts - to  which} appropriate sermons can, be  readily adapted.   The principal par  pose of the innovation, aB I understand it, Is not so much; the simplifying of the parson's task as it-is  the drawing of young men in to the  evening services.', By giving Ihem  something ota (beneficial character it ia hoped to stimulate, their  interest in church ;go!ng generally  in addition to giving them real entertainment,   combining   both  .religious and 'moral instruction.  So far the Congregational church  has shown the greatest activity in  the novel departure, but it must  not be inferred thalt every sacred  edifice o 'fthe denomination is to  be Itfarned 'into a moving picture  theatre^ The real motive behind  the whole scheme is simply to make  the 'conventional sermon more.attractive ��������� to the ' non-churchgoer,  "thereby helping 'him, and at the  same time adding to the church attendance.  Each of the Two Great World's Oil  Trusts Hare a Large Number of     *  Private Detectives to Watch  Each Other.  Ooqoiitlam is.'ito 'have an Orange  L'Old'geu( Mr. J'.W. Whitley, the organizer fior Uibja-t order'in this; province, is alt present busy at w,ork.  The/ Methodist church has also  takne the matter up, and in addition to- illustrating the regular  Sunday services, many of the pastors are planning the installation  of moving picture exhibitions in  the recreation rooms, of the church  es, changing the bill nightly. They  hope by this means to keep^ yourig  irirLs and boys from visiting th������3  cheap theatres which are condemned as immoral and dangerous Id  their influence on the young."  Ther-County 'Board of Chicago ia  also making trial of the cinema to-  graf'.as" a reformative agent. A  machine has been set up in the  juvenile detwention home and the  eighty boy and gir linmates w/jre  recently entertained with pictures  of 'the Coronation Durbar in colors. This unique effort to improve  the morals of the city's delinquent  children has 'been warmly endorsed  by socia'L'ogical experts as-, a step  in the right ddreetionl.).. It is argued thjat it children whq have,  gone slightly astray can have their  minds taken from the sordid things  of (life at reasonable intervals they  are bound in time to become better men, and womejn.  In old days, before Patent Acts had  been passed to confer well-deserved  monopolies upon inventors, the man  who discovered a new process in the  arts or In mechanics took the most  elaborate precaution's to guard it.  He worked behind locked doors; hla  workmen were' put under oath not to  reveal tihe process, and were searched  when' going out, while all visitors  were rigorously- excluded.  ' The busuness spy of those days had  to resort to the most elaborate disguise, and he practically carried his  life in his hands. The man who, in  1770, stole' the famous Huntsman process for making steel, got access to  the Attercliffo works under the guise  of a half-frozen tramp, who begged  admission one bitter winter night.  " To-day the" owner of a patent is  protected by law from, infringement  In every country in the world, yet  the trade' spy is far more numerous  than he was,a century ago.  The Oil business  There has been, and is, war in the  oil'trade.    The  two great companies  ��������� one of  which  draws   its   supplies  from America, tlie other from Russia  ��������� have been cutting prices.  Part of the campaign ��������� the most  'important part ��������� Ls conducted by  spies. The Standard Oil, it is said,  employs no fewer than eight' hundred  secret police, many" of whom act as  paid employees in the works' of the  rival company.  Thus the rival oil companies are  kept informed of the yield of their  enemies' welis, of the names of their  customers, the wajjes they pay, and  particularly of the prime cost of. the  carriage of their products -to the  various  markets.  In England, many of the great  wholesale firms have their own corps  of secret pci'.ice. There is at least  o^e. Lriii of whisky manufacturers .  whose secret agents constantly visit  the retainers, their object being to see  that no inferior substitutes are offered to 'customers in piace of -their own  brand. ��������� ���������'*  ;  The owners of wc-M-Iiuown brands  of patent articles, such as soap, drugs,  motor-car tyres, ecc, also send round  men, whom they ca;l "inspectors," to  see that Uie retail fir., a do not sell  their products below tlie advertised  prices.  How Dressmakers Suffer  The worst sufferers from trada  spies are the fashionable dressmakers.  Very large pivces are i.a:d to the  artists who design new fashions In  ladier,' dresses, and these, of course,  can be registered, and so protected.  Firms, however, Liia-t e.-uier cannot  or will not pay the Lest artists are  always on the leck-out for these designs as soon as thoy appear; for, by  making a few mvial alterations, they  elude the copyright, and so manage to  profit dishonestly by the brains of  others.  MAXUFACTUaED  .MILK  Cows are not numerous in Japan,  but the Japa-ose are fend of milk,  and to rreot this dornn.ad in the 'face  of a natural shortage chey long ago  put their wits to work and evolved  a product that the 'average person  cannot distinguish from the regular  dairy  article.,  The artificial milk is derived from  the soja bean. ' The bcaus are first  soaked, then boiled in water, presently the liquid turns white; sugar  and phosphate of potash in proper  quantities are added, and the boiling  continued until a substance the thickness of molasses is obtained. This  fluid'/'corresponds very accurately  with ordinary ccideuLed milk; and  when water.-is added cannot be.told  from fresh. If the present rise In the  price of British milk continues we  can foresee a big run on soja beans.
