Tha  daily attendance  at the  Quebec  Exhibition ran as high as 75,000, and a  very great interest in the agricultural   possibilities   of  Western   Canada,  /was shown by the visitors.  Let me say something cheering?    And it is this:   We have  overtaken the   German   output  of munitions; we'can give them  more than  gun  for gun,  more  ��������� that shell for shell now!      And  what I. have always said would  happen when, that day arrived  is* happening NOW.'    Through  our    instrumentality   arid    aid  Russia   has ' beemv-rc-equipped  and is stikiug the terrific blows .  her immense stores of human ^  material permit her to strike;  Italy has been backed by money  and food and othqfr'things, and  is more than holding her oavii;  the Serbian army has heen reincarnated and is striking hefty  blows for hearth and home at  the Bulgarian doors;  while on.  the west front France and Br.it-  'ain are smashing doAvn the subaltern, fortresses of the   Germans, and pushing ' the    enemy  gradually back���������taking care all  the time that*his losses justify  their scrifices.    This Avar  is a  w.ar. of..attrition-;-- At .-.never was  anything else, once the German  onslaught had been countered  and brought up.   , It is a matter of- men and munitions. The  immense preparations for this  Avar  on  the  part  of  Germany  'f (preparations which . had been  going on for years, while    Ave  had been trying to    form    alliances   for   disarmament   and  calling peace meetings between  the nations)'���������gave her and her  allies a big advantage; but this  handicap has nowbecnovercome  and it is just a question of Iioav  long Germany & Co., can hold  out.    With the possible exception of one department���������that of  machine guns���������weight   of material is in our favour.

What Ave do know is  that the very small gU'ain of  truth they sometimes ecu tain is  so small,in comparison AV'iJth the  bushel of lies, that it baffles detection. Far better take no notice of their statements set all.  Vienna, Buda Pest, Rome or A-  thens Avires are much the same;  they are either inspired by German influence and methods, or  has been enormously increased j the ravings of sensational news  since.

Germany's submarines could not blockade  England, nor cut oil EngaiuFs  i'ood supplies. Germany con hi  not build submarines sufficient-J  Jy rapidly to keep pace with the  losses sustained in submarines.  British anti-submarine operations are so successful that Germany cannot hope to achieve  any thing, much by this means"  That is the opinion of the prime  minister of Germany.  If Germany cannot build submarines as fast as Ave ban-destroy them, what becomes of  Germany's promise to America?  But what about our own building of submarines and other  ships? Let me tell you something. I believe Ave are now  had ! "top dog" on land.    But it is on  ly the operations of the British  navy that has permitted us to  become so.

A. BATES, -        - Editor and 'Proprietor  FRIDAY, OtJTOHJStt C, l\\lfi  We are all anxious to further  our OAvn interests and the interests of our community and the'  ,  only way we can arrive at a conclusion, as to the best means of  doing so- is to get an accurate  idea of each other's viewpoint  and so,reach an intelligent and  fair decision.    It would   be   for  the, best interests of all if we  thought more of this matter.  If it is good.business for one  citizen to patronize mail order  houses simply because he can  save a little here and there it is  equally good business for all to  do it.    If all do it even to a fairly! moderate degree the home  stores Avill   necessarily   deteriorate.    Poor stocks    Avill    be  ,'kept and business will become  worse and Avorse because   poor  tores      cannot   attract    trade.  Poor business means inability  to pay rent���������assignments���������empty shops���������reduced population  ���������slump in. property   values-  consequent loss to everyone���������  . failure of the town to collect  taxes���������ruinous 'tax   rate   and  '   high.charges for public utilities  for the feAv avIio are left to pay���������  and finally the    grass    groAvn  streets of a "deserted village."  Success on the part   of   our  merchants and   business   men  must mean plenty   of   employment in town.    It   must   mean  good wages.      It must    mean  all stores and houses will be occupied���������that rents will be paid  ���������that property will   hold   its  value���������that taxes will -flow in���������  that people will be attracted to  , the town and   the   town   will  grow.  The money that is sent to a  mail order house is dost to the  town.    The money that is paid  to one of our local merchants  is still in town.    The man Avho  paid it will have continued   opportunities    to    get      another  whack at it.    In a hundred or  more Avays he stands to gain by  the money, being still here and  circulating.  Farm land   near   Vancouver  and other large-cities is worth  more than the land near   this  little town of ours.    The land  has this value  because of its  greater annual earning   poAver  when situated close to a ready  and healhy market. Land close  to Abbotsford is    more    valuable than the land close to a  smaller town with probably but  one store.    See the point���������purchasing at home, benefits both  the purchaser and the seller in  every way that you look at it.  Of course whether a man patronizes his home town or not  he wants to know-that it is al  ways here, will "its doctor and  harness maker and' merchants  and schoos and ��������� lumber   yards  and its implement sheds all rea  dy to attend to his* every need  on short notice. The proximity  of a thriving,  town not   only  adds ..to. the comfort   and   convenience of the farmer but in  a thousand ways it means actual dollars in his pocket at every turn.  Moral: Purchase all you can  in your home town, for the sake  of the towns prosperity and  your own comfort.  The question brought much  lo the attention, of the farmers  and the man on the land these  das is the quesion of raising  more. That idea of back to the  land is a good one all should  be encouraged in taking up a  piece of land and making it  productive���������that is what .the  bally land is for.  During, the past year many  new settlers have made their  home/-upon the land and have  started' to produce something.  The.government, keeps saying, produce more; but the man  ,on the land has another cry.and  that is 'show us where-to market, what Ave already produce and  give us a little-money to stay on  the land to produce'more.'  ���������  ��������� .,'  LOST���������KODAC between Glover  , Station and Abbotsford in. the  road September   17th , 1916.  ;.

BltAXDJLllTH CALIiKI)  ItV DEATH  Mr. William James Brandrith who  for'over twenty-one years was provincial fruit tree inspector in this  province,' and in late years was fair  commissioner, passed away at the  Royal Columbian Hospital on Thursday last, about 5 p.m., at the age of  71, years. Mr. Brandrith retired as  fruit tree inspector about three years  ago,' owing to failing health. He  had only been at the hospital two  days.  The funeral was held on Saturday  afternoon last followed by a large  concourse of friends and. acquaintances.  - The .deceased was widely known in  all parts of he province and made  many friends, who will be sorry to  hear of his death.  LAW IS STIFFENED  Deserters  From   Canadian  Army To  Be  Summarily Dealt  With  Ottawa, Sept. 3.0.���������Two orders-in-  council have been promulgated stiffening the law with regard to dealing  with deserters from the" expeditionary forces and with regard to seamen  who refuse to obey orders on ships  requisitioned for His Majesty's service. In the case of soldiers who  desert or are absent without leave,  it is provided that they may be summarily tried by any justice of the  peace, police or stipendary magistrate without regard to territorial  jurisdiction and sentenced on conviction to imprisonment for a time not  exceeding  two.  years  The production of a service roll or  attestation papers purporting to be  signed by the accused and a written  statement from the officer commanding a military district showing that  the accused was absent from his corps  shall be deemed sufficient proof of  desertion.  delusion and a snare.  It is found that unless an artificial  arm or hand is an accessory or aid to  -what romains of muscular control in  itH owner unloss it depends upon him'  rather than he upon it, it will servo  no purpose biit to dishearten the man  who could have got ponsiderable service from a much simpler and more  submissive tool.  In these heroic days men who,  with half an arm or none, are trying  to lit themselves again for manual  work, the marvel is not the artificial  limb or other, mechanical appliance  given them, but their own courage  and resourcefulness and the responsive power that can be found and developed in the stump. It is the'man  himself that holds, and gives life to,  the  artificial   limb.  It is upon this foundation, tho man  himself,that the best brains.of France  arc working in their ondeavor to restore to him the .very thing ho suffered for���������independence.  In the same way; it is the man  himself, and not the instruction given him in a convalescent hospital  that is going to win success when he  goes out and rejoins the honourable  ranks of self-supporting citizenship.  He may be keen, taking full advantage of that instruction and ro-  aolved to "get on when he gets" into  civilian.life, if he is a read man, he  does. And by doing so he ��������� is only  acting consistently. He showed him.  self a real man by oining the army,  he will not want to go back on himself by playing lees than a man's part  now.  One is that getting the stuff together  and then turning it over to a foreign  company will not'solve it.'That sending to jobbers who have heavy,supplies of the samo kinds of American  fruits on hand will"not solve it. Neither will politicals solve it.'   The getting together of the' experts in marketing   and   the   experts   in   growing,  may.    "  A , man   cannot  work     for  two masters."    He*,   cannot    handle  competing American fruits    and    be  just to British Columbia fruits. There^  is no reason that all fruits or produce  cannot  be  handled  on a  recognized  scale  pf   costs-'the. same     as     the  freight companies.; charge' freights,  these scales ;of > costs public to both  grower and  consumer,  alike,     then  thoro  must-be some kind of supor-  to a good map should they had  occupied these villages.

Many elaborate artificial limbs may be seen  advertised from time to time. They  are ingenious and wonderful, and it is  boasted that they are practically automatic.    But too often they are a  Not sufficient berries to supply the  demand, but no- chance to advance  the market, as Freeze the .Grocer was  getting more than he could get away  with and so was retailing at three  boxes for a quarter. No more letters  will appear as we consider the season  over.  We take this opportunity of thanking our shippers. We have no explan- i  ations or excuses to make. We have  done our best, and'glancing back over the season, we'cannot see how we  could have done any better.    We did  not have except, on one or two short  periods, anywhere near enough goods  for our demand.    We have felt that  after working as hard as we have to  build up these markets for our B. C.  Growers against the importations    of  other jobbers, both here and at other points, many growers    were    not  treating us very fairlyl in.sending to  those jobbers and  cutting us short.  It has seemed  that they were right  when they said:   "Take your profits  today,  those     growers    will     never  thank  you  for  what  you  are  doing  But after all there is some satisfaction  in knowing that  we have  done  our best for a Canadian industry and  the many letters  we get every fall,  and are getting this fall too, thanking us for'the service we have given,  make   us   feel   that   our   efforts   are  not entirely unappreciated and there  is sovnething in life as well as piling  up dividends.    We doubt if there is  one grower in B.  C.  who has given  the   matter  a- thought,   but.- realizes  there is  something  wrong  with  the  marketing.    I am not going to try to  solve it.    But I would like to leave  a   few   thoughts   with   the   growers.  ���������(f&e.  ���������i>  Best Grades  price  ALBERT   LEE,   Grocer   and   BaKer  ace;  *jn  (Continued from Page One)  map, and you won't go far  wrong. I.say actual words.and  this is necessary.. I will give  you an illustration of- German  "shineress"; Last Sunday morn  ing at 2:30' a. m. I watched a  Zeppelin cjuite(destroyed by fire  and.yesterday' they buried ' the;  charred rje'itians of its ,-crew..  The official German account of  this raid issued .the next day  said: "A large fleet of Zeppelins raideed England'' Then followed a very lurid account of  the damage done, and if it was  , all true I should not be Writing  this screed. The report concluded: "All our Zeppelins returned safely." A later account  said: "Our naval airships raided England." Then followed the  usual pack of lies about the  devastations wrought, and the  "official" concluded: "All the  ships returned,and are accounted for." Now there is nothing  literally wrong in hee reports  excepting the accounts of damage. The airship burned was  not a Zeppelin, in just the same  way that that a ."Ford" is not  a "Benz" or a "Darracy".. It  was a newer class, known as a  Schutte- Lanze (or something  of that sound). We call'them  super-Zeppelins, but inasmuch  the shape-and fittings of some  of the cars below the "envelope'  are different to the Count Zeppelin pattern they are of course  not really Zeppelins. And as  some of the airships taking part  were Zeppelins, no doubt these  "returned safely." Then again  with regard to the report ree na-'  val airships, this is quite cor-|  rect. The airship burned up  was an army airship! One of  the naval airships sank in the  sea off Denmark, but it was seen  to do so,and thereefore could un  doubtedly be "accounted for".  So you see it is necessary to be  careful,even when you readwhat  is true. Some of their bulletins  from the fronts are very amusing to those who can "read between the lines" "We have retired to a stronger position" usually means they are scootng  for all they are worth. "We occupied a new strategical line, in  accordance with our plans" is a  phrase used to create the impression they could have pleased themselves, whereas it simply postulates failure���������they  couldn't help themselves. Over  and over again lately.heey have  'captured a long string of villages, names given.    An appeal  vision over the fruits by the growers  dently say something    cheerful  about  the state, of future outlook.    Germany, is sick, getting  worse.    Austria is dying.    Aii'd  Turkey and  Bulgaria will soon  be eliminated altogether. Orders  have evidently been given to the  German press to begin to let tlie  people know the truth.    Berlin  papers this week    havo , made  some very bold admissions.    No  German.papers,would   dare   to  publish such   articles   without  official sanction.    German people this week have been invited  to give up all hope of annexation, and to realize that in future  that they are only fighting for  their own existence.    This must  be a bitter blow'to the Junkers  and the .militarists, whose ambitions led them to plot and to  dream of a world-conquest. The  German people are told by their  papers this week that "though  they might conquer' the Russians. French and   the    others,  they cannot hope to beat their  principal. foe���������England, whose  mastery on the sea it is impossible to dispute, and who (they  say) could carry on the war for  thirty years if necessary."    And  they say a lot of other things  which are true, and which are  up against   Germany.    If   they  really mean them, then we   are  getting, on, and the war won't  last long.    If they do not mean'  them and are simply playing up  to us, then they are "barking up  the  wrong  tree."    There    are  some fools    in   America   wlio  drealn of a future world dominated by England, Germany and  the U. S.    I don't think.    So far  as Germany is concerned it will  be many years ere its people are  permitted to settle and trade in  England as they were.
