Nelson on Wednesday afternoon, when her daughter, Thelma Nelson, was united in  marriage to Mr. William H. limes,  son of Mr. and Mrs. A. limes' of New  Westminster.  The ceremony was performed by  Rev. W. Robertson, only the immediate relatives and friends of the  couple being present.  The bride was charmingly gowned  in grey silk, crepe, embrolderd in  oriental colors, with lace hat to  match, and carried a beautiful bouquet of white bridal roses. She  was'attended-by her sisters, Eveyln;  becomingly attired in a. costume of  mauve siik crepe with lace hat of  the same shade, and Freda, daintly  dressed in blue silk crepe with lace  hat to match. Both bridesmaids  carried .bouquets-of- oph el ia .roses. -'  'Mr. E. T. Weir supported the  groom, the wedding march -being  played by Miss Steede.  Immediately after the ceremony, a  tasty buffet luncheon, was served by  Airs. A. limes, assisted by Miss Emma Trethewey and the Misses Anna  and Mabel Nelson.  The reception room was very artistically decorated with mauve and  white asters.  The groom's gift to the bride was  a beautiful . musquash fur jacket,  to the bridesmaids, rhinestono bracelets, and to the best man, a sterling  silver cigarette case.  Mr. and Mrs. W. H. Innes left  Vancouver by the night boat for  Seattle and Portland, and will sail  from there to California, where a  short honeymoon will he spent.  The bride's going away costume  was of blue tricotine, trimmed with  Persian  lamb.  Upon their return, -Mr. and Mrs.  W. H. Innes will take up residence  at Kerrisdale, Vancouver, where Mr.  Innes is manager of the Bank of  Montreal.  Miss Thelma Nelson was very popular in Abbotsford, and the best  wishes of a large circle of friends  is extended to the happy young  couple.  I,    A���������Lily.  B���������Patricia  LARGE NUMBER ATTEND  LAYMEN'S  GATHERING  The largest Laymen's gathering  in the history of the Deanory of Yale  met Thursday in. the Parish Hall to  hear the Right Rev. David Williams',  Bishop of Huron, nearly seventy being present.  A delicious luncheon was served  by the ladies of St. Matthews' Church  and short addresses were given by  the Rural Dean, the Rev. H. R.  Ttagg of Chilliwack, and Archdeacon  Heathcote of Vancouver, in introducing the guests of the day, with-a  rich Welsh accent that was really a  delight to hear.  Bishop Williams made a straight  forward and thorough explanation of  the missionary work of the Anglican  Church, and strongly appealed for  tho necessary recognition of the  Christian religion if on.* present civil izul ion is to survive.  Laymen wore present from Abbotsford, Bradner, Chilliwack, Mission,   Langley,  Sardis  and   Surrey.  This weeks weather has been exceptionally fine. Real Indian Summer' weather. Threshing is well  advanced. '  There is' a lull in the fruit business, due chiefly to it being the end  of the month, and collections are being made. Prunes are stiffening a  little in price. ,''.-  There is considerable volume of  Washington Bartlett Pears from cold  storage coming into this' market,  also many' Elberta Peaches. This  would indicate that considerable  more pears and" peaches could be  planted in districts suited to their  growth in B. C.  The only apples imported into, the  prairie market this week were three  cars which  came to Winnipeg.  We noted last week the good work  olone by the Associated Growers' in  withholding the Mack apples until  the Wealthy .variety cleaned', up.  This has helped the distribution ot  Wealthies. We regret to note that  Independent shippers have not observed this rule. ���������' ���������  Sonic Independent firms rolled  Macks to wholesalers giving them a  week's advantage over firms supplied  by tlie Associated Growers. Today  (Friday) we find Independents quoting Jonathans now b^ing loaded.  Such tactics injure .distribution, and  if met by the Associated Growers'  stuff would stampede the market,  just as it happened, last year. J We  iToint this out in fairness to the ^Associated- Growers. -���������'���������> >   ���������' " '"' '" '-'"'V  Last week we were informed that  Transcendent crabapples (Sunbrite  Brand) were being consigned to retail dealers. This has been denied  by the firm handling this brand.  .We see Transcendent crabapples  retailing at 60 cents per box, which  suggests that growers will receive  a due bill for their trouble in shipping them.  Today Independent Brokers are  quoting Vernon Macks at $1.40, for  Fancy, and 9 5 cents for crates,_this  is 5(.' under Standard quotations.- A  Calgary retail grocer has been offered No. 1 Macks laid down here  at $1.75. The freight runs about  35<J.  Prunes' are being sold by Vernon  Independent at- 45������, as against 60(5  by other brokers.  In the interest of the fruit indus-  EDMONTON  RULLETIN  EDMONTON, Sept; 27.���������There  is a little activity in preserving fruits  on the market this week caused  presumably by people . who are a  little late in ordering their requirements.  A lot of the prunes coming in have  been showing shrinkage and this has  meant that a considerable quantity  'has been jobbed, with a resulting depression in price. The sale on plumy  seems to be extremely low. There  have been several cars of American  Elberta peaches in this week and  demand on them has continued fair.  There have also been some American Bartletts brought in this week  and quite a few cars and part cars  of B. C. Flemish Beauty.. There is  a fairly good steady sale on pears.  There seems to be a pretty good  demand for Hyslops and those that  have come on the market have cleaned up quite well. The sale on pickling goods has continued fairly slow  right straight through the. season.  There are quite a few. green tomatoes here now but demand isn't as  heavy as in other years. First cars  of Ontario grapes have, arrived within the past week or ten days and  there are also some Ontario Damsons  and Green Gages on the market.  Apple sales to date have not been  as brisk as might have been expected. There seems to be quite a few  Wealthy crates on the market still  and they are being offered at pretty  cheap  prices.     The  first  Mcintosh's  Mrs. Bolster, who has been receiving treatment in the Vancouver Hospital for an infected eye, has returned home, the eye being much improved.  A very pleasant evening was enjoyed at the whist drive, given in the  school house Friday by the Parent-  Teacher Association.  Mr. J. Tolmie was home over the  week-end   from   McMurray.  .  Mrs. J. W. Winson and daughters  have returned home from an extended  visit  in England.  Mrs. Carmichael of Abbotsford  visited her parents, Mr. and Mrs.'M.

FRIDAY",   OCTOBER   5,
1023
Thu fruil growers of    tlie   Fraser ��� Valley
should organize, and start right"now. so that
the anti-dumping law as    pertaining Lo fruit
should be changed and come into effect belorc
the fruit season of 15)24.   The present   act is
very good, but (is too slow   acting,  ,and    the
' wrath of lhe law conies down   on the   agres-
sors long after the offence is   completed     Jt
is a case of locking the stable door after the
horse is stolen.    Here is how it works: Strawberries are being dumped on to tlie Vancouver
market sit a Lime that is   detrimental   to the
home grown    product.    Word is   sent Lo Ottawa Lo Lhe inspector in charge of that department, -which    Lakes at   least   four   days.   U
Lakes a day for him Lo decide what to do.   It
lakes another four days for some one to come
from Ottawa Lo   investigate.     lie   probably
spends a week investigating; then goes back
to Ottawa���another four days.   It Lakes   him
probably a couple of days, to   make   out   his
report in full as a thorough investigator wish-
���   ing Lo standin with his superior,   and hand it
in to Lhe Inspector, who takes at least a couple
of days Lo consider what he best do.     And another four days to send some   one   from Ottawa Lo enforce the Act.   That takes a   long
piece out of the   strawberry   season. We are
wondering if any complaint has   been   made,
this year in regard to the   Anti-dumping Act
now in force, and- what the   outcome   was.
Later we may publish the results of this investigation, or get some good   politician    to
explain from the public platform.   An Act of
this kind to be   effective   should be   speedy.
Therefore we say organize to protect against
another importation next year of   250,000 lbs
of strawberries   into the   Vancouver   market
during the strawberry season.
There is such a good laugh about Americans���and such a lesson for the people of that
country to take to heart���in a recent issue of
the London Evening News that the temptation Lo print it can't be resisted.
"A Filmgoer," writing on "America As 1
Know 'ft," gives his impressions of the Americans as follows:
"America is a large country entirely surrounded by sin and sentiment. It is inhabited in the East by unscrupulous but enormously successful business men, who devote
their nights to squandering.in cabarets their
ill-gotten gains of the day before. In the
West 'bad men' rob stage coaches and banka
and shoot sheriffs and , their partners in
crime and spend a good deal of their time rolling on Lhe ground in attempts to gouge each
other's eyes out. The North is peopled by
bearded scoundrels who go there to escape
from the lav/, Lo steal mining claims and to
menace lonely girls snowbound in log cabins.
The South is noted for cacti and half-breeds.
The last-named have no particular vice;
they are just bad.
"These conclusions are arrived at from
personal observation, not in America, but
in the British cinemas. The films which
have taught me these things have American
trade-marks, so I suppose they must be true
pictures of life in the United States. They
have also taught me that there are a number
of good people in the land who seem to make
up in sentimentality what they lack in sinfulness. '....-".'.���...
"The rich women of the East are noted for
the scantiness of their clothes, their uncharitable attitude towards other women and for
their remarkable bed-rooms. These are of
enormous size and have at least one telephone and an easy Way of egress for the
heroines and ingress for the heroes."
Yes, of course, that is funny, but there is a
serious side to that skit, not only for the A-
mericans but also for the Canadians, who
live in the North���not of the United States���
but North of the North of the United States.
But then we should not really worry.
This is a wonderful old world after all, and
all the smart people do not live or reside in
any one community, neither do all of that
class who appear to know.it all live in our
own home town. 'Tls said that it takes all
kind of people to make a world, and we certainly read some queer opinions once in a
while. Some conclusions are wonderful when
they start (ravelling. What looks good in
a local community very often appears ridiculous to others of a different community. But
one of tho richest bits of discrimination we
have come across was recently shown in the
City Council of Minneapolis.
In 0. K.'ing a list of magazines suitable
for''���juvenile prisoners, it was decided to eliminate.the Saturday Evening Post, The Red
Book and The Ladies' Home Journal as unfit
for the youngsters to read.
Tlie Saturday Evening Post felt the axe
because a Socialist Alderman objected to its
attitude on the labor union question. A conservative Alderman brought out the astonishing assertion that The Red Book makes heros
of criminals. A labor leader Alderman maintained that The Ladies   Home   Journal was
 '   '   L'LIJJ1-��L.,'��!L"L^.UI-
...".I...UJ."_JJI-.!1JP I'lZ
namby-pamby and only fodder for females, although  Good Housekeeping  was  sanctioned.
Each of these leaders of thought agreed to
agree providing he was agreed with, and so
the three stood united in order that the minds
of tiie youthful delinquents might remain
pure aud unsoiled. Therefore juvenile ]>ris-
on ers in Minneapolis do not'receive these publications. '    ,
Really, it is too tragic to be funny.

A wise man has said that the most insignificant
thing becomes full of interest if studied deeply
enough. Beneath 'the miscroscope of zest and will
the content of the trivial is capable of indefinite enlargement. The disordered minutiae of life fall into
pattern when seen as the raw material on which purpose and personality must work. They become "dim
fragments meant to be united in some wondrous
whole"; a heap of bead6 waiting for the magic string
of character to make a necklace of them, and perhps
even in the process' change glass to jewel. It is a saving thought that, if "Hoc age" means "Just do this,"
it means no less, than whatsoever the hand finds to
do should be done with all the heart and mind and
strength.���London Times'.
What we cannot understand is how negotiations
should be carried on between the Cabinet and the
British Government on the Indemnity Act, of which
the nation knows nothing, and why it is not left for
Parliament to decide. The-country cannot, in any
case whatever, give the British Goverment rights' over
the people and their lands. Why does the Cabinet
give the English a' law which they iesist upon having
before Parliament meets? A few days ago the Under
Secretary for Foreign Affairs said, in reply to Mr.
Spoor, that he hoped the Egyptian Government'would
approve the Indemnity Act very soon. This means
that the negotiations which have been going on for
some time are on the point of conclusion, and that the
British Government hopes the Egyptian Government
will sign the act. 1'f such is tlie case, has Egyptian
public opinion no right to know what its Government
is going to sign? Will the matter remain secret I HI
one morning the law is puhlahed by an accomplished
fact?���Egyptian   Mail.

There is a report throughout the province
that when the provincial government brings
m its new distribution bill during the coming
session that the number of members will be
cut down, and consequently the constituencies made larger. It will be found that it is
easier said than done. And the government
that does it will" find it an unpopular move.
We do not know that the government is
thinking of doing so but surely in the inters
ests of good government they are not thinking of doing it., In the country districts of
this province a member has to do considerable travelling to keep in touch with his
constituents and thus be able to look after
their wants as he should. He gets his money'
for Lhe session, but a member who does not
trot around arid find out the different wants
of the different parts of his district is out of
luck, for he will be charged with neglect of
the duties of his high office in representing
Lhe people. It is of course a hard matter to
please everyone, but we would say give the
people better representation than they have
now and they will be better satisfied-

Centre and GiiiimI*���������Important  Position  One of the most, important positions on the basketball team is that  of centre and a few words regarding  this position may not be amiss.  The centre is tho pivot man, as a  rule, of all team plays both defensive and offensive. For that reason  he., must be accomplished in all the  arts in regard to the forward and  at the same time must possess the  qualifications of a good guard. He  is usually a tall man so that ho can  secure the ball at the tip-off although some very good jumpers are  to be found among men of shorter  stature. In selecting a cenlro ability to get the jump along with the  following qualifications must bo  considered.  lie must .be a live wire for ho has  to cover all parts or tho floor. lie  Is an offensive player when his team  has tho ball and a defensive one  when (ho opponents got If. Ho must  constantly back-check and must bo  able to stand the moat strenuous  pace. He inusl. bo quick on his feci,  mid  must, use his wits at all times.  Shouhlor control must bo acquired  by the centre so that If is possible  to' roach tho full height with one  arm without moving tbe other. Swing  ing Indian clubs and dumbbolls will  help to develop the shoulder .muscles  and to make them nupplo and strong.  ���������The abdominal muscles should  also bo wull developed in the centre  because ho must remain In his half  of tho circle when jumping for tin,  ball and not commit a foul by touc-  ing tho olhor man. The leg muscles  of course must be in excellent condition and must respond Immediately to tho necessity for tho jump.'  Stooping with hands on the hips and  raising tho bondod knee are good  developing exercises for the leg muscles.  Perhaps the most important feature of the centre's game is good  passing. He should bo able to shoot  well, to guard well and above all to  pass well. He will bo required to  foed..the forwards and his passes to  them must be-made with great accuracy. Being the pivot man he is  likely to. receive more passes than  any.other man and he must therefore handle the ball with neatness  and despatch and must lose no time  in getting the ball to the forwards.  Just a word about back-checking.  You have often seen a game lost because .one or .other members of the  team did not back-check. It is a  great error for the centre to fail in  this for his opponent will probably  make .the third and free man of the  opponents offense. Should a guard  be drawn out to check him, ^a forward is left unguarded.  The position of guard V. calls for  specialization in one or two qualities  which the forwards need not possess  to the same degree. A sense of  perception and cunning in solving  the. offensive play of the opponents  and the ability to move quickly  enough to break up.these formations  are these necessities.   ���������  The guard first of all . must be  very keen in sensing tlie direction ia  which the play is going to move. In  advancing to check his man it' is  often possible that the ball will be  passed in any of three directions' and  it is necessary for the guard to  start in that��������� direction before the  pass has been started, if he is to  block or intercept successfully. It  is that quality of being able to sense  the trend of the play and to time  one's interference that makes a  first-class guard.  Passing out to the forwards and  backing up offensive movements of  the team are two important features  of the guard's play. A running .and  a stationary guard are usually posted for the latter purpose, the faster  and better the shot of the two being  placed as the running guard. It is  his duty to go up the floor with the  offensive and to assist by going in  for passes when tho other men are  checked. He must be fast enough to  get back to his position, once the  ball is out of the possession of his  side.  r   ���������������  Opening of the Hunting Season  ->$M.  -lunters just as happy coming back as going oven if farmer does  lay law down.

Tho first of the new <  pulmans left Montreal last Saturday  and every day thereafter one of the  all-steel model-sleeping car has been  attached to the "Continental Limited." AH who have travelled In or  inspected the new car declare it to  be the last word in sleeping car architecture and  construction.  These cars having been built for  ' transcontinental service, particular  attention has been paid to the comfort and convenience of the traveller  who lias "to spend several days on  board train. The length of the car  has been increased by about two  feet, giving it a length of ,81 feet  over all. This extra space has been  added to the ladies' dressing room,  which is the acme of perfection. The  dressing room contains three separate wash basins. In front of each  there is a wing mirror, both..wings  being movable so that the traveller  can adjust them to any desired  angle. Above each mirror is a separately controlled electric Hv'n> -d  at th������ side a sanitary towel case, the  top of which has been designed 10  hold toilet articles'. By placing, the  door leading to this room at a different angle and by making use of  a semi-circular curtain, .the utmost  privacy has been secured for the  occupants. Boudoir chair3 permit  the ladies to sit in comfort while  making their toilet.  Sleeping arrangements nave been  considerably Improved by the adoption of a separate set of curtains  for the upper and lower berths. This  provides absolute privacy for the occupants of each berth and a device,  which permits the fastening of curtain of the upper berth around a. bar  makes it impossible fo.- children or  any occupant to fall out.  Particular attention has been paid  to the ventilating system. In addition to the automatic, ventilators on  the top of the car, there ia an ele<j������  trically controlled exhaust, nm uu.i-  nected with the. body of the car as  well as the smoker, thus ensuring  cleanliness of air at all times. Heating arrangements are improved il-  so, the installation of a control device permitting the heat to pass  through two, three'or five pipes as  desired. J  Everything possible to ensure the  safety of the traveller has been  been done. The cars weigh 169,400  pounds and are locked to the trucks.  The passage ways' have been widened and the corners rounded and each  car has been equipped with an anti-  telescoping device which provides  the maximum of safety in the event  of an accident. The cars are beautifully upholstered in green Engiisn  made plush. Lighting arrangements  have been perfected and the-windows have been equipped with weather strips. There are., also many  added improvements designed to  make as comfortable as possible the  journey of the traveller who has to  spend a number of days on board  train. .   ��������� "  VA i\COU VKR.

As a result the  demand I'-or the more perishable  fruit, which arc more freely consumed in warm weather, lias fallen off  considerably. The season in these  linos, however, is well advanced and  will be over in a few days.  The apple movement is fairly  steady and will bo more so as tho  other lines of fruit drop from the  market.

There is still a considerable movement from across the  line. The imported peaches are practically all of tho Elberta variety.

Cow-boys and cow-girls,  decked in all the bright colors which their predecessors wore in the early eighties���������these were the prominent notes in the great symphony of color.  Calgary took on the appearance of frontier days  with hitching posts along the main streets and the  old cow-town ponies stood in front of the sky-  Bcrapers of the modern city.  In the great parade in which several thousand  participated, Mayor George Webster struck the keynote in his wonderful leather chapps, blue silk shirt,  pink handkerchief and huge Stetson hat. The stimulating contrast of the new and the old was evident  in the roar of the big airplanes overhead while the  pioneers' and old-timers section of the parade, venerable Red-river carts, original Hudson's Bay vehicles, squeaked their way over the pavement that  covers the virgin sod they travelled many years ago.  They were driven by the men of 1860, 1870 and  1880 and drawn, in many instances, by venerable  nags that looked as if they, too, had survived the  days of the rutted prairie trails to walk through a  city that was but a dream when their work began.  There was the real old-time prairie schooner, complete with trailer. The stove in the ancient wagon  was going full blast and all the housekeeping requirements were there. On the trailer were a had of  duok3 and geese, some spare firewood and tied behind, walked a white goat and a cow. < The Sarcee,  Blackfeet and Stoney Indians, resplendent in all  their feathers and war-paint, beaded garments and  firming tails, were everywhere in evidence.

To add to the great wild west picture was to  see "Tony," a black pony ridden by a typical westerner, make his way through a cafe or to see Mrs.  Duck Thief making her way up Eighth avenue, just  previous to winning the first prize for travois turnout. The tepee polos crossed over her horse, dragging  behind   and   the   family   followed,  quite  comfortable  except for the car track crossings.  The buffalo barbecue was a new interest to tho  present generation, even if old-timers were quite at  homo in enjoying their buffalo sandwiches. Fivo  buffalo were obtained from the Wainwright herd  and the committee served over twelve thousand sandwiches.  Of all the striking pictures of the old, wild west,  that have ever been presented to the world, tho  great Calgary stampede will live forever _ in tho  minds of those whoso imagination grasps in significance of the passing of the last great west. And  it is thus passing in pictures that are a dazzling succession  of brilliant colors.  The new Banff-Windermere motor highway, forming as it does a link in a 6,000 mile chain of good  roads, was used by hundreds of visitors who motored  from'the western States and from British Columbia,  and who afterwards toured the Canadian Pacific  Rockies.

A  FARMER'S  ACCOUNT ROOK  Any merchant handling several  different lines of goods would regard  it as lolly to neglect to keep a complete set of books enabling him at  all times to ascertain his profits and  losses on the various commodities ho  sells, his assets and liabilities, and  so on. A manufacturer who failed  Lo do so would be heading for insolvency. It is curious, then, thai-  Canada's basic industry���������agriculture���������should be carried on, so far  as individual producers are concerned with it, in so casual a manner  with regard to account-keeping. Especially is this strange when it is  considered how simple farm book  keeping is by comparison with that  of other businesses.  In a survey of some eight hundred  farms conducted some time ago it  was discovered that very few farmers indeed followed anything like  a complete method of accounting,  while a large number adopted absolutely 'none at all. These, beyond  having a sort of general idea as to  "what, paid," were often quite hazy  as to actual returns from different  lines of work.  In order, ir possible, to remedy  this undesirable state of affairs tho  Dominion Experimental Farms system has published an extremely  simple farmer's account book, which  will adequately serve all necessary  purposes. Tn size and thickness it  is no larger than a school exercise  books', and is designed to last a complete year. To "keep" it requires  no knowledge of ordinary accounting; simply the ability to write and  add; and a record of all transactions  might bo made in an hour a weok.  A few plain directions as to making  entries, some aids to taking inventories, a table of silo capacities and  a gestation table, are given on the  insides of tho cover, while on tho  back are printed calendars for last,  this and next year.  In the book itself are pages for  the entry of receipts and expenditures (both of which may be seen  at a glance on the same page) rela-.  tive to cattle, horses, sheep, swine,  poultry, crops and labour; and  there is also ample space for miscellaneous items. There is a page for  amounts owed to and by the farm,  and forms on which may be made  inventories of land and buildings, of  live stock, of feed and supplies, and  of machinery. Following is a page  on which may be filled out a summary of the year's business, togeth  er with the few directions necessary  to filling it out intelligently at the  end of the year. Further, for thc-  farmer's information there is a  table in which to enter acreage and  yield of crops', and one in which to  keep a live stock  service record.  The whole thing has been reduced  to the simplest possible terms, anr*  should prove, to the general farmer  one of the most useful publications  issued from the Experimental Farm?  for1 some time. It should be recognized that farming is a business, th������-  same as any other. If a business is  not paying, the owner of it want to  know just why it is not doing so  This little book will enable the farmer to keep an accurate record of  each department of his business,  find out how much he is making  from each, or how little, and so be  able to adjust matters accordingly  "The Farmer's Account Book" is  attainable from the Publications  Branch of the Department of Agriculture, Ottawa, at a nominal  charge of ten cents. No postage need  be placed on letters of application.  ���������Experimental Farms Note.  i3riii.<f vour own container   and  ���������o  tfel  some oi'  it is   very  our choice   Honey at 20^ a   pound,  choice and at this price it will not last long.

JS5R  gBafw1,.*  CORRESPONDENCE  To  the Editor  Abbotsford Post  Sir:  I would like, through the columns  of your paper, to ask the members  of the Board of Trade, who introduced the subject of street lighting at  their meeting on Monday night, why  the action taken at a public meeting  held for the consideration of this  matter, some time ago, was overlooked and ignored, and an entirely new  procedure adopted, regardless of the  wishes of the citizens generally, as  a glance at the names of those who  attended must convince the most  charitably inclined, that they were  not at ail representative of the property owners of the town,    who will  have to "pay the piper" if this business  goes  through.  I would also like to know why  such a spirit of Jay Gouldism was  manifested when it was modestly  suggested that a public meeting be  called to consider the situation. Thus  is the community spirit of wliich we  hear so much in these degenerate  days,  fostered.  ONE WHO WAS THERE.
