Seven- days and  nights of defeat have added to his impotent ang-  -cr;   till  he  rages  up  and  down  the  Somme, wholly disregarding von Fal-  kenhayn's-warning against the Avaste  oi:  munitions and    sacrificing    men  and shells in a-perfect orgy of hate.  There.was a delightful little scene  in' tho battered main street of Cour-  celette, where the' French Canadians  rounded up a Bavarian battalion "com.  inander���������a   real   "baron���������  who   gave J  way .to a truly  German outburst of  anger   and   despair   when   he   found  that his captors were fewer in number than the.-troops he commanded.  You must imagine^t.his scipn.,oJI a  minor princely house, with his hands  in the. air and the light of fury shin-  'ing through his .eyeglass, surrounded  j by a group of watchful.

A-  rouncl him reluctant members of his  garrison were being bombed into the  light   of   day   or   surrendering   to   a  shining .bayonet, with the usual formula:  "Pardon, kamerad!" Then tho  arrival   of  a   French-Canadian   commander,    and    a    conversation     in  French .between victor-and prisoner,  Finally the eruption of red-hot German profanity, Uowing like lava over  the. politer   language  of   diplomacy.  He stamped and bellowed. -,  " * * * -vve chastened him," said  a spectator of this breezy interlude.  "Oh, yes, we brought him low with a  rush. Before long he was ,so tame  lic'd eat out of our hands."   '.  The angry baron' made an humble  exit from Courcelette with his hack  to the German army, walking before  a f-le ol wounded Bavarians. He  had obic-cied to finding his way to tho  British lines through <ne heavy 0=r-  inan eir.i.fu'u- fire find, successive  waves of advancing Canadian l.ro.sp.s  pointing cut that ho vtas in danger  oi! being killed by his own gunners  "You have got to take your  chance," said the Canadian officer  grimly., "If the Germans fire on you  it's your  funeral,   not  ours."  They did go on firing, as a matter of fact, and the baron���������still further chastened���������reached the first  British dressing station with a shrapnel wound  in  his  leg."  Fear of Airmen  I make the following extracts from j  captured   German   documents- which  show   the .growing   fear   of   British'  airmen and the effectiveness of our  artillery:  To Battalion Headquarters. 211th  Regiment on September  11:  The company has had very heavy  losses, and cannot hold the sector  in the event of an attack. The losses are chiefly owing to our own  heavy artillery. No contact on the  right * * '* Attack on us appears to  bo impending. Communication with  the right cannot be maintained, since  everything is flattened out.  Your Ad. in This Paper  BECAUSE  THE- RIGHT PEOPLE ARE  LOOKING FOR YOUR AD.  If you COULD (although, OF COURSE, you  can't) stop every man you meet on the streets  asd ask: "Do you want to buy a pair of shoes?"  (Or any other kind.of goods) You might-find .  half a dozen who would say "Yes." Perhaps not  one of these, however, would want to buy the  article you want to sell.  If������your advertisement, however, were - to . be  printed in these columns  this week,  it would  "stop". EVERY MAN IN ,TOWN WHO WANTS'  TO BUY SHOES,  OR    CLOTHES,    OR    ANY  OTHER ARTICLE���������-and it wouldn't "stop" any-,  one who didn't want to buy-    That's the beauty  of tire advertising -way of finding a buyer.     The  ad. finds the buyer through the simple process, of  being easily and readily found BY the buyer -  And if, among the prospective buyers of goods,  there is one to whom your goods would be a bargain, and your ad. is a'convincing one, you'll sell  what you want to sell.  (THIS SPACE FOR SALE)  9)  It must once more be pointed out  that   the   establishment   of   anti-aircraft guns in the rear and near rest  billets is absolutely necessary.       In  the case of aircraft flying really low,  as  it  is  reported  they often  do,   it  must be possible to shoot them down  if a  belt ot! fire is  laid in front of  them   into   which   they   have -to   fly.  There is no chance of success if the  airmen themselves are aimed at.  From an Army Order of the Higher  Command, signed by Gen. von Below, dated August 29th:  According to reports from    Headquarters,   hostile  airmen  have  sustained quite trivial losses from    the  machine-gun lire of our troops. The  theory that hostile'aircraft are protected by armour against infantry-is  not correct.     Vigorous  firing at  the;  enemy's  firing  men   has  every  prospect of success, and must bo attended  to.The entrance to dugouts must be  concealed in order to render it difficult   for   enemy   airmen   to   observe  them.  Other captured documents show  a marked shortage of-remounts, oci-r,  , and hay for some months past. An  order of the 6th Corps states thai  horsse are to be spared as much as  possible. Another admits that the  quality of the horses sent up from  the lines of communications is deteriorating. Mention is also made of  the intention of issuing small Russian horses.  GIKliS   AS   BANK   CLERKS  ��������� The statement of the Royal Bank  officials to an Eastern paper that they  now employ 700 women iu their various offices as compared to only 25 0.  previous to the-war, serves to draw  added attention to another phase .of.  the  poweriul  currant  of  these,   our  times    Incidentally the management  state that taken as a whole these wor  men are very satisfactory    They are  largely young girls    recruited    from  business colleges and the.usual business channels, but of late a new element has crept into the supply. This  is in reference to the fact that girls  of ��������� well-to-do. families  who  had  not  previously considered    working    are  now beginning to fill the gap created  by the absence of other bread winners or else simply in answer to the  more insistent demand for their services.    This is stated to be particularly true in the case, of the Halifax  branches.

We are  pleased' to see the ��������� women  take this matter up, and only hope that ..they  ��������� will'be able to solve the problem���������the men of  the Valley cannot.      Even  the  Westminster  Columbian thinks the question    is    in    good  hands, and starts in to say something.     This  is what the Columbian has to say editorially:  "The conference    of    Women's    Institutes  for ,the Lower Mainland have, like many another public body of the Frase rValley,- found  that  the  problem  of  better  marketing was  bound to intrude in. any discussion, as1 to-im-  .   proving farming and: home.'economy-'Conditions in a region that for fertility and varied  ��������� production  of foodstuffs  has  no  equal,  but  which- lacks1, that co-operation in the business  end of. the.industry such, as .will, give a full  and,profitable,return to the tillers of the soil  Itf-.is gratifying that the women of the rural  districts iiave discussed this question, and it  is to be, hoped    that they will continue    to  give it consideraion until such time as they  approach farther on the way to absolution  than'the-men of the Valley and city.    For the  problem? is; still insistent, and particularly so  in the fall of the year, when    markets    are  gutted with seasonable fruit and vegetables'.  wlhich ..the local consuming centres can not  absorb readilyl all at once, and "Which-   condition-lowers''the'-returns-to the-farmer, fruit  growers and 'vegetable producer.  "The'report's-,on. the markets  these, days  ���������as-s'-to   :the'    -shamefuloccasional    treatment.  of:consignments -by dealers ��������� in the big cities,  is,also ,,but.vanother  proof that the  remedy  for, a condition that robs the producer of the  just'fruis of his'labor is still to seek.    It was  .   this-condition'that-the Fraser Valley Development' League- set itself to -remedy,and some  progress' was-made, but;lack of- support from  the .'rural municipalities,  the criticism, that  is bound.to arise when any body is active in  seeking to change old conditions,    and   the  failure to make headway in the co-operative  movement,-militated' against the ,:success   of  the League's efforts.    The    only   visible   result- of- the- expenditure, of   much. money and  -individual enthusiasm - has been    the  . creation of a; new government job which has ap-  . parently become so important that the Valley  interests,' which the  ��������� appointment    was    to.  serve, have-been overlooked,, and the net result is that a 'share of the Dominion government grant ��������� which  should  go  to  promoting  the co-operative marketings idea, particularly i  "from an -educational    standpoint,    helps    to  support the- salary of the Fraser Valley markets   commissioner   who    either    has    been  loaded with-so many-duties or. has not    the  'inclination to undertake disagreeable duties  connected with the office,  that there is not  that aid, support, direction or stimulus to the  co-operative marketing idea.which was to be  expected when the ' position    was    created.  Without government leadership in this what  success is o'be expected, when the well known  strong individualism of the agricultural producers are known?    The Department of Agriculture has shown that leadership counts in  organizing the communty efforts of the   people on the'farms by their support and encouragement     to     agricultural      institutes.  Why'could not-government leadership    also  make success of co-operative marketing in the  Fraser Valley, and elsewhere in    the    province?"  If the. Dominion government gives the province an agricultural grant for educational  purposes,-that is- what it should be used for.  The horticultural department   at   Victoria  has* done a lot of good work in the past, but  .-we do  not -believe that department has as  yet reached :its -limit of good work for the  fruit growers of,the province; neiher do   we  ���������believe the department has done all it can do  vto assist-the growers in the solving., of; their'  problem of marketing the products of    the  Valley.    We are even inclined to think there  ���������are.;members of that department who know  very, little for - what< they were appointed for  except to draw their salary.

Da1Nod this 1'lth day of September, 191 G.  A. J. .I-.11j]i\::WRSON,  Applicant.  (From Fraser Valley Record)  The Board of Trade held their regular meeting on Thanksgiving evening with a good attendance.  Several matters of importance  were before the board for discussion  Among these was the question of  the ferry across the Fraser at Mission City. There was some inkling  of a change of the service came to  the ears of the board and the meeting took up the matter with its old  vim and energy when ferry is mentioned. Some time ago a more extended service .was asked for���������from  6 a. m. to 12 p. m., and this resolution was again endorsed and will be I  sent to Victoria, togther with a petition handed in to the board by a few  of the business men of the town.  Uicre is  di  f.r  they seem further away. ���������   .  If' the night is heavy, few stars  are seen, but as the barometer  changes more stars come into view.  Then the cow-boy on guard says, "An  other star out, Sir". The foreman  tells him to double the guard and  call him if, the cattle get restless.  The -guard is doubled ,but the cattle  grow restless apparently without roa-  son. They have been lying close together chewing, their cuds but sudden lly got ii]) and walk round and  round in circles. When the cowboys notice this they begin to sing  very loud and the cattle genera Illy  lie down again. if they do nol  check the cattle a stampede is likely  to occur, which is very dangerous,  as wild cattle often kill men trampling ,.thorn under their feet rushing  onward to their own destruction.  According to cattlemen this sudden  restlessness' is due to the change in  the atmosphere as the steer unliko  our modern cow is a high-strung and  nervous  animal. j  An K.YCollent Idea '  At the suggestion of.

SILVER   CROSS  FOR  MOTHERS  While the discussion of the ferry  was before the board it was agreed  by those present who have occaslonto  use the ferry that the service given  by the present crew was good, in  fact could1 not be better but that the  traffic and the business interests of  Matsqui and Mission demanded a service as asked for by the board.  The extension of the time of the  ferry may warrant a second crew being appointed.  The fire committee will have the  chemical engine fixed the money in  the bank ,to-the credit of the committee being used for that purpose.  But you should have seen the  president's face when the motion of  Messrs J.. A. Catherwood and M. F.  Shook was read. That expression  might be' put under three headings  ���������first, one of surprise that some one  had beat him to it, second, one of  condemnation; and thirdly, one of  approval unless some one did not a-  gree with the motion... A poor lone  bachelor had the courage to oppose  the motion, and his first speech a^  the board was heard. The motion  was laid on the table for a month un-  'til the important matter ��������� had been  thoroughly discussed, when each  member will receive due notice that  his presence is required at the beard.  The following was the motion' That  this board views with pleasure the  j:;tension of the franchise to the women of B. C and hereby invites the  ivomen of the district co join tbo  Mission City board of trade.  The next meeting of the Board  should be held on Monday, November  13 th.  1 see that my friend W .A. Fraser  well-known as a Canadian novelist  and short story writer, has been  writing to the newspapers, suggesting that there might be a silver  cross instituted for the mothers of  Canadian soldiers who have fallen in  battle. In' a communication to the  Toronto Star, Mr. Fraser puts forward his suggestion as follows:  "I would like to suggest that Canada might pay a beautiful and deserved tribute to the mothers of slain  Canadian soldiers by having struck.a  medal which-might be called the Silver Cross. Men could take off their  hats when they met a woman with  this medal on her breast, who would  be known by this emblem to have  made the sacrifice that Mary, made  when she gave her Son for the good  of men."  The idea is a good and touching  one, and I do not think that many  people would object to it. Mr. Fraser  makes no suggestion, apparently as  to how it should be carried out.  Should it not be done by the Federal  Parliament, and the medals be struck  at the mint at Ottawa?-���������Diogenes in  Vancouver Province.
