Matsqui was favored with a fine  day for the fair although the appearances on the morning of the visitors'  day was not any too promising for  a beautiful day, but-all were agreeably surprised, and " large crowds  visited the fair in the afternoon.  Mr. S. A. Cawley/M. L. A., for the  Chilliwack riding opened: the. fair-in  words' of encouragement "rto" \ those  who contribuetd to the success, of.the  one great event of the year when the  farmer proudly produced his stock,  his cattle* nad'his'field .produce for  the examination .of his neighbors and  their friends: "'.' - Mr. Scott, deputy,  minister of Agriculture was also present and addressed the visitors and exhibitors;, speaking words of encouragement. . ������������������  While in ,��������� some respects the fair  was> not as good as.might be expected  from a rich and prosperous district  like Matsqui, yet on the whole \t  was a ^ely'fair example of the field  produce, cattle and horses, also fruit  that has made .Matsqui'famous-as an  agricultural district.  In the horses one ,saw many fine  samples  of  heavy  and  light  horses,  that no farming community need be  ashamed of. By consulting'prize list,  the names of the owners can. be seen  It would" apaprently seem as though  the   farmers ��������� of   the prairie   believe  that" when it comes to fine horses-no  class, of animal is too good for the  cultivation of the fields, and for travelling on the roads.  The stock was excellent but wanting very much in quantity. . .  The hall although not so. filled to  overflowing as last year was a .picture- for the intending settler to behold:' The varieties of apples, .pears  and other fruit were large and well  formed, - while the -vegetables..were  a puzzle to' the-judges to'decide who  won the prizes. , '  In the ladies' department there  were some' excellent work showing  tlie ladies of the district are:not behind other districts in the fancy articles that go to make up a comfortable home.'  In the upstairs part of the hall was  an exhibit that was actually, a great  credit to the schools of the municipality   the teachers who taught the pupils .and also the  cleverness  of the  boys-and  girls of the  schools.  The  exhibit which.was a collection ot a  number of the schools.of the muni-  cipa ity was .an exhibit of the writing  and  drawing  capabilites.of tne  children attending the schools. "The  small boy vand the small girl had a  part in the work.   .One side of the  room  and  wall  and  a  table  in  the  centre  was  crowded'with the little  pieces of paper, in drawing represent  ing  some  dog,' cat, bird,  or  flower,  in freehand and brush work, while in  writing the/exhibit was good. If-the  samples   shown; ^vere   an   everyday  affair of 'what kind  of, writing the  boys and girls do then it bodes well  for future happiness, as good writing  is a passport the world over.  division A���������Horses, Heavy Draught,.  1500 Lds and Upwards  Brood mare with foal at foot- -l,  Percy Smith.

'  In warfare the Kaiser's men so far  have acconiplihcd nothing except the  concmeringand administering of very  great, cruelty   upon   a   nation   vory  much smaller than tho German Em-  plro���������Belgium. Nothing yet has been  accomplished in the way of coiiquor-  , ing Franco or Britain, and he  cannot make the excuse of being unprepared.    Since the war began the German navy and merchant ships  havo  been  driven   off  tlie  high  seas���������tlie"  navy subjected to a'bottling process  that  sends   out   a   little   gas   fumes  once in  a while  in  the shape  of a  submarine. Over 800,000 tons of shipping according to reports, of the German merchandise has been  delayed.  The foreign possessions, one.after another   have  fallen   before' a  British  ��������� navy. The fact of the matter is that  the Kaiser has subjected himself and  his people- to  the most severe criticism of the civilized world���������even the  heathen nations have considered his  actions   such   that   it  jars   on   their  nerves and they have come  out  to  fight.

The world loves a hero no matter  where or whom- he may be, but the  heroic '(?).. deeds of the present emperor of Germany will never be models for Sunday School children.  As time goes on and the public are  being enlightened more and more upon matters relating to the war, says  the  Penticton  Herald,  it is  noticed  that careful writers and speakers are  trying to emphasize the    distinction  which exists between the bulk of the  people who , compose the population  of the German Empire, and the milit-  ' ary' class which has been so successful in turning things uside down in  that'-' country.      More and more too,  the references are to Prussia, as the  chief -responsible factor in condition  of things which has been brought a-  bout, and as, in.this rspect, essentially-distinct  from, the    other    states  which 'belong  to   the   confederation,  and which are obliged to submit to  the control of the dominant member  of the group.    England has no quarrel with the German people as such.  In many things there exists a natural kinship between the two peoples.  And  the  manner  in   which   German  subjects, engaged in various pursuits  in England, are  treated, as well  as  the moderation  and kindness shown  towards German prisoners of wnr,and  wounded,  are a     strong    indication  that  the   factor   of  personal  enmity  hardly  enters into  the  situation   at  all.    The spirit of vindictive revenge  is almost entirely absent.    In the war  the Issues seem to be very completely  detached from evrything in the nature   of  personal   animosity,  and  to  concentrate    themselves    upon    (ho  great abstract, impersonal principles  Which are at stake.    Constant inter-  ly the  exceptional  strides taken  in  the fields of art,  science,  literature  and  philosophy,  had evoked  an admiration which the    English    people  were not slow to give.    The protest  against the war signed by a number  of eminent Cambridge professors, on  tlie'ground   of  Germany's vast  contributions to culture in recent years,  may have been ridiculous, but it.possessed a significance of its own.    To  those men of learning laboring under'  the necessary limitations in the perspective of the scholar, the war seemed   monstrous,   unnecessary  and  absurd,   and  doubtless there  are  very  many of tho leading minds in  Germany  which   shared  their    opinion,  Facts and reflections of this kind do  make the tragedy  of tlie war more  complete.    What, then, are we-fighting for?     For many years there lias  been growing up in the heart of the  German Empire, a dark sinister influence, an evil, baneful spirit, which  is tlie flat contradiction and negation  of-tlie ideals, of nineteen centuries of  Christianity.    This   has . received   its  inspiration from the prevalent teaching  of   certain   kind  of. philosophy,  represented by Nietzschhe Trietschke  and his followers, the tone of which  is notoriously subversive of christian  idoals, and which,- when stripped of  all its'trappings, is no less monstrous  a  theory than  that    might    makes  right, and that the nation which can  nurse   its   power   to   such   a  degree  that it can force its will upon other  nations, 'is justified in doing so, re-  gardlesss of  all  the other  considerations.    It is  Napoleonism  re-incarnated, the spirit of empire-lust, cutting lose from all the temperate restraining influences which make for  a  live-and-let-live  policy among nations      Oold,  cruel,  and calculating  it derides the peace which grows up  from within, as the expression of the  virtues of amity and good-will,  the  peace which results from the will and  the effort to  make .mutual concessions'acording to the dictates of the  Golden Rule, and has a place only for  that peace which is a result of forced  submission  to- the   iron  heel.    This  ugly'theory has been laying its hard  steel-like  clutch  upon the  vitals of  national  life  in  Europe during  the  past quarter of a century.    It is not  altogether confined to one nation. It  may be, perhaps, more aptly likened  to an octupus reaching out with Its  tentacles   in   all   directions,   but   its  centre is in Prussia, and the expression of its worst tendencies is seen to  day in Prussian militiarism. That materialistic  spirit,   which  has  at  last  revealed itself in its true nature has  been  fed   by   the   dream .of   world-  empire,  which,  as  Professor  Cramb  has shown in his work entitlel "Germany and England" demands for its  realization the utter" destruction    of  France and'the overthrow of England  The mask has been thrown off,- and  England has been aroused to the grim  realities.    It  is  this   which   we   are  fighting,, this menace to the freedom  and the peace of the civilized world,  and this is the reason for the existence today of  that  restrained    and  quiet, but resolute determination that  this hideous thing be the sacrifices involved what they may, shall be destroyed.  this type in Victoria, Are our girls  patriotic enough to start a White  Feather League?���������Victoria Week.  PRIZE WINNERS AT MATSQOT  THE   WHITE   FEATHER   LEAGtJE  A remarkable league has been established in London.      It is the work  of   the  girls,   and   is   meeting   with  singular scccess. It was originated in  consequence  of   the     serious     complaints made  by our  leading public  men of the' difficulty in iducing able-  bodied young men. of a certain class  to enlist.    One of the leading London  dailies comented  upon the fact  that any day one might see several  thousand  young  fellows hanging a-  round Hyde Park or St. James' Park  watching  tlie  troops   drill,  but  that  on  being approached by the recruiting officer they melted away.      Lord  Kitchener's appeal has been insistent  and   finally   has   so   impressed     the  girls  that  they  started  a      "White  Feather League"      The organization  covers the whole of London.    It is a  recruiting agency.    The girls divide  into squads and patrol certain specified sections. Every young fellow they  meet is politely accosted and asked  to enlist.
