It took the jury less than .1 fi minutes on Tuesday to find I������"rotl Talbot,  ulias Bill Martin, the Mats<|iii fugitive, guilljy of criminal assault on a  young Mt.  Lehman" girl.  Tho girl in question positively i-  dontiilcd tho accused,, her mother  gave evidence as to the girl's stato of  mind when she, reached home. Dr.  Swift of Abbolsl'ord gave medical evidence, while municipal Constable  Lehman and his son Leroy testified  as to Talbot working at the Lehman  home previous to the assault. Provincial Constable Renner related incidents of' the four days' hunt, in  which a'pair ot "boots without heels  played an important part in tracing  the wearer of this footgear from the  scene of the assault to the impres-  sion'of the same heel less boots in the  gooseberry patch' at the Lehman  farm, where accused had worked.  Later a pair of hob-nialed boots  stated by Leroy Lehman to ������ have  been missing from his home, entered  into the tracking of the fugitive.  The two important-.points which  the prosecution dwelt upon the most  were the question of the assault as  charged and the identity of the prisoner in'the-box as the man guilty  of the crime.  As the prisoner had no council I.  W. Pettapiece wa sappointed ��������� to act  "for him and put up a hard right a-  gainst heavy odds.  At the conclusion of this- trial tlie  petit jury was discharged and court  ajdourned until yesterday noon when  pronouncement was made on those  guilty at this assizes.  Talbot was sentenced to fifteen  years for the, crime.  The Johnsons of Chilliwack guilty  of abduction were given three years  each.

In his weekly report, Market Commissioner Abbott's sizing up of tlu  state of the potato business indicates  that growers are slow to realize that  consumers have made up their mind  not to pay such high prices as havt  ruled in the past. He says there if-,  practically no demand for spuds at  present rates and that the dealers  are not hoarding, hence in case of a  oharp frost injuring the supply in  tlie country, the public will be up a  .jinst a real shotage.

THE TKEND OV TRADE tiOING III Oil IT  The report that the provinces of Manitoba,  Saskatchewan and Alberta have decided to  purchase British Columbia apples comes as a  surprise, after, the Edmonton people a short  time"ago refusing to cat a free gift from Crcs-  ton. But the prairie provinces are the natural .destination for British products just as  much as British Columbia is the natural place  for- prairie wheat. When the interchange  takes place the trend of trade is taking its  right course. It never did seem patriotic on  the part of the prairie people to prefer American fruit in preference to that of B. C.  ..He has one' leg!    You have two hands to  help him���������hands to hold Victory Bonds,  WHY NOT BUILD THEM BOTH? SAYS SUN  Last week we called attention to the rivalry  ofvthe two, proposed highway to the interior  boosters, ^pointing out .that they should boost  for. both roads. Now the Vancouver Sun has  taken - up, the same idea and says, "Will the  proposed, highway to the interior go through  the Fraser Valley or over the Hope Mountain? ��������� A Vancouver man who has just returned from an .inland trip reports the existence  of a great deal of rivalry on this point. The  different towns.naturally take different views,  according to the way their inteiests would be  affected^  There is of cuorse only one permanent solution.    Both routes will have to, be built. The  contending forces  ought to get together on  this basis.    While they are ��������� pulling   against  each other, the government sits back and suggests that they reach an agreement.    If they  cannot agree, the government "will take steps  .to ascertain which route is the best"    A promise .to this effect was made last session, and  it is a safe bet that a similar promise will be  made next session.  "It loks very like a case of both or neither  Co-operation, therefore, is plainly what is  called for. So long as the construction of the  one road is understood to involve the non-con-  structin of the other, the project is not going  to make very rapid progress."  - This paper would like to see both roads  built for the simple reason that two highways  for tourists, would,be the result. In that case  ,-there would be a better, chance of having two  good roads through the lower part of the.Fraser Valley and a bridge at Mission City would  follow as a natural conclusion. Many tourists  would- want tc-visit the great natural scenic  point of the central part of the Fraser Valley  ������������������the Stave Lake with its falls^ and water  power.  There is nothing to prevent making the  Stave the attraction of this part as Harrison  Springs is the great point of attraction further  up. A park- could be nicely made there. The  lake could be made, more attractive for sportsmen, and:a good hotel at Mission City would  reap  the benefit.  We hope it is nice weather in Ontario like  what we have in B, C. now that, the election is  on with about three hundred candidates in the  field. We want to see the people have all the  fun possible. They vote for a. member and  also on the prohibition question.  Nominations were on Monday and the elections two weeks later.  It takes Victoria to do things. An effort is  being made to get the Chinese on the voters'  list to record their ballot at. the bye-election  on the 26th. Dr. Tolmic has demanded that  ���������no-Chinese-'be allowed to vote, as have the  veterans and the women. Men who are engineering Chinese-to the polls deserve to be  put- behind the bars for at least ten years.  SHOULD. GET ACQUAINTED NEAR HOME  Vancouver business men have this present  summer taken a trip to the northern interior  and have recently returned from a trip to the  southern interior. Why not take a couple of  days .off and make a real good lengthy visit to  the Fraser Valley north and south of. the Fraser river, and get acquainted with Vancouver's fruit and vegetable garden; For a very  pleasant visit the grass would look as green  as oil the far away- hills.

A PARABLE FOE FUTURE GENERATIONS'  (Continued  from  last' issue.),  A new leader of. the government was appointed, but lie apparently did not suit any  better  than   the  previous  man.  The new premier had been blamed for a  great many things in times past1 that he was  not very guilty of, but some one has to be  the goat. When he became premier he issued  a challenge���������now. famous in B. C. politics��������� to  those who opposetl him. Great glee prevailed  in the camp of the "honest" ring, as just as  sure as daylight followed the darkness of night  something was going to be proven that would  certainly put an end to premier's Napoleonic  career. That is now over a hundred years ago  and that premier is dead, but the people have  transferred that word "Honest", only in this  case the name is deserving.  No wrong-doing was seen, and no stone was  left unturned fo prove that some got where it  should not be. Then a great hue and cry went  put against the man personally, and so loud  and long was this that it soon began to stick in  the minds of doubtful follows. Converts were  made and finally election day came which told  its tale.  During the one session held amidst the tur-  bulance oi: investigation the premier was able  to pass    some   really   first-class    legislation  which no doubt had been the result of long  political  experience and much investigation,  and some of it should have made the working  men the admirer of the author, but instead of  idolizing him for it, fault was found with it  in  many ways.    Years, and with very little  adjusting it has proven one of the best pieces'  of legislation ever passed,  and  was at that  time quite in advance of anything, of its kind  in any country.    The great temperance movement also gained air impetus, but that idea of -  restricting good men as to what they shall eat  and drink has passed, and men now are punished for wrong-doing in this as in other acts.  As we said the election day came and told  its own tale;  the country saw what in those  days was called a 'landslide' and the men who  had exercised every, known political    act    to  'gain.power were elected to hold the reigns of  power.    They will hereafter be referred to as  The Oppressors of the people of the province  of n. G.  ���������No.sooner were the election results made  known than. The Oppressors of the people began to grab for tho money bags. They said  there was nothing in them but they were anxious to get ahold of them. Your great-grand  father's father has a picture of two men down  on a potato patch, one with a hoe. and the  other with some fishing tackle strapped on  his shoulder. One wanted to find out from the  other when it was expected the defeated premier would make his final- 'bow,' sir. The  anxious look was written all over their faces.  Eventually the clay of control came and The  Oppressors of the People jumped on the money  bags, and holding them fast, cried aloud,  'There is nothing in them, except a few papers  which look like bills to pay. But we will get  busy and pay them.'  (To be continued.)  iwjwh uMwesmang  ���������*  *"-#������������������*  or*  ���������a %<  .

Thrift.  Thrift is tlie art of making that  which we have go farther; the study  and practice of economy in its fullest  measure.  Tlie practice of thrift brings to  anyone, benefits almost too numerous to '���������rtioiH.ion. it means to many  the.'difference between living in comfort and living in want. Careful and  sensible practice of lirift, brings a  feeling of security in tho future. A  thrifty   person   is   generally     happy,-  wym.M������ujl  !������������  and a credit to his-country and  his  family. ���������  Nearly any one can. make money;  some can make more.' than others,  but all can make the most of what  they get by practicing thrift. Great  men have said: "Real success is not  in 'making ��������� money, but'., in.^ using it  wisely." ' Wise saving means not  spending beyond your means, and in  doing -this great opportunities are offered to practice thrift.  A "thrifty- person can invest his  money in different ways, such as  buying property, pitting 'money in  the bank, or buying Victory Bonds.  One of the best methods of saving  small sums is to buy Thrift Stamps.  Anyone can invest as low as twenty-  five cents at a time,'- knowing, that  our government will pay the money  back   with good  interest.  THRll'T  (By. Hazel Arkle, K. W. -Noway  School, Entrance Glas)  There are many people in this  world who are very thrifty', but there  are just as many that are thriftless,  are just-as many that arot lirlftless.  If a person is thrifty there- is no  need to be a miser; some of the mos.  thrifty persons- in' the world are tlie  most generous, if your country is  in iitetad of-money, you should be  willing to, fend -her., a. helping hand,  even if it makes it a little hard on  yourself, because your country does  a- lot for you.  If you aret hrifty you are benefitting yourself, arid also your' parents, because you will be independent. By this means you will be able  to livecomfortablyl on your earnings  and not have to depend on your relatives and-friends..  There are "a great many people  who 'do not,realize the'meaning of  thrift   in   their-- youth.  To be. thrifty, one must ^always  look ahead; if you earn one hundred,  dollars a month, do ��������� riot spend one  hundred' and twenty-live dollars. Try  to' live within your means, and if  possible,- save a little each -mouth,  and in this way you will save..your'  self much discomfort and sorrow in  your old age.  Take, for instance, the.ant; it is a  very tiny insect, but,,in spite of this  VERY one of the.million and- a half subscribers to  ��������� Canada's Victory. Bonds, knows, that he can sell  . them today for more than he paid for them.  Every one who bought Canada's Victory Bonds has  received 5% per cerit. interest per annum���������paid twice a  year.  Over half a million Canadians who bought Canada's  Victory Bonds on the instalment plan saved money that  they would not otherwise have saved.  The guarantee bccl: of Canada's Victory Bonds is  the same as the guarantee.back of a One Dollar or a'Two  Dollar bill. There is this difference, however, that you  get interest on the Victory Bonds arid you don't on the  One or Two Dollar bill.  Canada's Victory Bonds will always be accepted as  security for a loan.  Banks are ready to loan money on Canada's Victory  Bonds.  Canada's Victory Bonds may be turned into cash at  any time.  There is no other way in which you can invest your  money with such absolute security���������paying such a good  rate of interest.  Canada will soon give her citizens an opportunity to  buy Victory Bonds 1919. It will probably be the last  chance to buy Canada's Victory Bonds on such favorable  terms.  Prepare to buy as many  Victory Bonds this  time as you now wish you had been  able to buy the last time  &v-  <*>  enfin gknada"  J^ueil by Canadn's Victory Loan Committee,  iii co-operation with the Minister of Finance  of the Dominion of Canada.  :< 4  ������������������'. h":-  H  fact,'it is a very thrifty Utile creature.

Brown)  Premier Lloyd,-George - recently  warned the British people through  the press that they must'be more  thrifty and much less extravagant if  the'liritish Empire was to get hack  to'pre-war conditions successfully  The same applies to Canada, and I  believe that we should follow his advice.  .By thrift I do not mean stinginess  or meanness of any nature, but 1 do  mean a. frugal and well planned use  of the incan.i at your disposal.  To b>- lli'.'il'iy yen must have- a  methodical and well chosen way of  spending your income. . TIlj nuist  biisiness-like and practical way is to  self-denial see that you do not ex-  i-overal requirements, and then by  self-denial seel that you do not. exceed these appropriations. The advantages ,o.f this method are quite  evident, as you- are enabled to check  and compare your expenditures with  ease.  . Predictions have been freely made  by prominent Canadian financiers  that one beneficial outcome of the  war in which Canada has made so  many notable sacrifices, will be the  establishment of a lasting thrift habit  Of course Victory Bonds had an effect on the Savings Bank deposits,  but it was only temporary, and with  the return of normal conditons I expect to see Savings Bank deposits increase considerably, and .1 believe  that the increase will be largely due  to tlie thrift habit, formed during  the warl Thrift is as necessary in  peace as in war and we must be  thrifty if we are to prosper during  reconstruction.  THRIFT  Second   Prize <���������  (By Mrs. W. T. Fennell, 427 Fourth  Street.) "     ,-  Thrift, from the Scandanavian  word meaning "to grasp or snatch,"  is the seizing of, things useful to life  or well-being.  It suggests a continual grasping of  small advantages; hence small economies, which enable one to "save  against a rainy day."  Existent in plants, it is also an  instinct  in   animal     life,'    following  | which,, the ant, the bee, the squirrel,  the. beaver and many others save, up  against  hard   times.  -  Thrift is a practical virtue; not  glorious or heroic,- but exceedingly  .'.omforting to tiiose within its influence. Thus its ideal exponent  is ,the common or everyday housewife who, without it, would soon be  sadly- behind with licr work and her  accounts. By thoughtful planning  she can economize in time, in fuel,  in electricity; careful cooking! .will-  render the cheaper joints - palatably  and nutritious; while timely 'mending and making over will halve I he  clothing bill.  Similarly, farmers, storekeepers  and manufacturers have innumerable  oporlunities of malting'small-economies, which, in the aggregate, oft-j-i '  moan the difference between -success  and failure.  *  The hardy virtue w'axes: stronger  in adversity, for '-no'-sooner"did--the  war bring scarcity and- want -upon  us. tiun it took root and-nourished  throughout the land, strengthened  by bulletins, pamphlets..and recipes:  To .wear made-over clothing" was; no  longer "infra dig"; to serve "stew at  table was patriotic. Volumes could  be written about the salvage of  waste material "in" the 'tfglit'ih'g--:ar'ca.-  in fact the war itself developed into  a contest of economy in supplies and  men, the winners being those who  spun them out the -longest. -    '  External peace assured, only the  most thrifty management 'of state or  city will produce solid 'prosperity at  Lome.
