We hear there is  a great display of work being gotten  up���������no less than six quilts, they  must think it is going to be a cold  winter, so batclielors get ready.  in  C.  There  !0(ls in  A.  First,  ,'il  are three great outstanding  the war work of ilie  Y.  M  the period when men leave  civilian life and go into barracks and  form new habits. This  when they will become  fo keeping ��������� in ' touch with home  Ihrough letters, learning how to entertain themselves and be entertained  with those things thai, are around  the barracks. They must get used to  having the army think for them and  care for. them. The Young ,. Men's  ���������Christian Associationrrealizes that in  the new draft there will be a need  practically, as great as with the gathering of the lirst volunteers.  The second great need is in England, where the men-realize that they,  are away from' home. They do not!  have the chance of seeing the home!  folks after a three or four mile ride,j  as the British    soldier    does.      The,  The very, latest in  Charlie   Munro   will  politics is that  withdraw     his  candidature from the Chilliwack riding in favor of Lieu. Ramsay of Chilliwack, who is now on his way to the  is  the timoj district.     He comes with blood in his  accustomed i eye seeking Col. Taylor's scalp.    He  mayhowever get fooled on this matter which  will take all the vim out  of his campaign, should  Col.  Taylor  as the daily papers say, be elevated  to the Senate.    Time will tell.  Then the three new senators are  supposed to be "Billy" Sloan, Mr.  Barnard, ex-M. P., and our own representative for the riding, Col. J. O.  Taylor. There is .however nothing  very definite about this as yet, but  it is coming to all three.  Then for Liberal-Conservative and  win the war candidates supporting  the union government, there are a lot  of names mentioned all having their  following.    There is "Dewdney Bill"  temptations are correspondingly in ,  tense. The Young Men's Christian' Manson, N. S Lougheed J. A. Ca-  Associafion here again accepts the. therwood, Barber of Chi lwack and  responsibility as tar as possible, of re-1 laat but not leant the whirlwind or-  prcsenting the people at home, a.u:i:ator Wm. McNeil of Vancouvor, who  providing   every,   imaginable     thing  that   is   possible   that   will   help     to i  make the life and efliciency of these  men better.  The third great need is in France.  When men have spent four or live  i'days, two weeks, and possibly longer  in the trenches under shell (ire that  cannot, be imagined by any except  those, who have been there where  they have lost the pal that they have  worked with, slept with, and shared  both joy and sorrow for the past two  years. These men, when released  from this strain, are tired, filled with  tlie scenes of the trench life  death, when one realizes    that  has been acting as secretary for the  Canada Power Company. Then there  is a glimmer of light among Charlie  Munroe's friends that, he might be  accepted as the only candidate for the  riding being elected by acclamation.  The Post believes that ,1. .1". Sparrow would make a good candidate.  He has a good Ford, that could supply a reputation for him, and Abbotsford is entitled to recognition being  the, central tQAvn of the district.  The matter of" a* candidate- to support the union government will be  settled   in   Mission   City  at  the  con-  and j vention on November 1st.  few!  ;   to  $:J.75   $5,00   $������,50   $2,75   $3.25  We have a full line of Soldier's Supplies  'Men's Work Shirts, Overalls, Heavy Sox,etc |  Our stock of these lines is well assorted and  closely priced.

The annual meeting of the Fraser  Valley Teachers'   Institute     will     be  held in Mission City on  Friday, November 23rd in Hie Mission City  School.  The officers ot the Institute  very proud to announce that  Robinson, Superintendent of Education, for the province has accepted an  invitation to attend the Institute  and will give a paper'on'Geography.  The growth and popularity of this  little local institute.: is the pride of  the teachers and officers, and this  year it is expected thai, there will be  a  verv  large attendance.  The annual meeting of the W.. I.  held at Mission City last week on I  Thursday and Friday was a grand  success, and the delegates went away;  very highly pleased with the meeting j  and the time spent at the various ses-;  sions.

The Allied peoples themselves  have been economizing with wheat  I and wheat flour. As' Lord North-  cliffe said in Montreal, "There is no  such thing as white bread in the Old  Country, from the King's table downwards." Other cereals are being used but they cannot be used alone  for bread. The Allies must add them  to wheat flour to make the war bread  now in universal use in European  countries Except in Italy, where the  people normally consume*much corn;  there are few corn mills in Europe.  Corn meal, not being a durable commodity, cannot be shipped across the  ocean in great quantities.  The Allies must have a wheat flour  for their war loaf. Unless the people of Canada and the United States  are willing to substitute other cereals for part ' of the wheat flour  which they normally consume, they  will be denying even war bread to  many thousands of people. Substitution of at least one pound of other  cereals for one pound of wheat flour  weekly, per person, would save a  very large quantify of wheat for export. It would still be far short of  meeting the normal consumption requirements of the Allies but it would  save   the   situation.  An apeal .has been received from  the Balfour Military Sanatorium for  3500 bulbs to be planted this Autumn and the Sperintendent Soldiers  Comforts, "J" Unit will be glad to  receive donations of bulbs, or promises that they will be forwarded to  Balfour, so that the entire number  may be supplied.  Those willing to contribute will  please communicate with The Superintendent Soldiers Comforts. "J" Unit, M. H. C. Command, Shaughnessy  Conv. Hospital, Vancouver, or telephone,Fairmont   212 7.

The   following   are   extracts   from  letters  to  their  iriends at home: '  Staff   Scrgt.   Humphries   writes:  "   As   a   returned   soldier   1   cannot  speak too-highly of the  work of the  Y.   M.   C.   A.       ,in   France,   J   have  travelled  from  one end   of  the, British   line   to   tlie   other   and   1   have  found   the  Y.   M.   C.   A.   everywhere  ministering   to  tfi*~-     wants     or!     our  fighting   men   right    in      the     line:  shell lire appears to hold no terrors  for   "Y"   oflicers   particularly     those  among   the   Canadian   Forces.   -The  Y. M. C. A. is just where it is wanted most and proves itself to be one  continual reminder of home and civ  ilization.  Mrs. V. II. C. Abbott says:    -1  My  husband   often   speaks  of   the  Y.   M.   C-   A.   as   working splendidly  for  comforts  of  the  boys  Extract of  letter of Sapper' W. P.  Mandale:  Coming from the trenches the  other night, was a fierce experience.  A pitch dark night, and in many  places up to our knees in mud. We  struggled along under our heavy  load for three or four miles until  my chum with whom 1 was returning  sank down utterly exhausted. .1  tried to get him up but failed; so I  just sat down in the mud beside  him, and believe me, both felt we  did not mind if we ever got up a-  gain. After resting a while and reminding each other if we struggled  on a little further we should get  to the Y. M. C. A. hut where we  would get a cup of hot coffee, we  scrambled up, and after a little  while right in front of us, shone a  bright star, never in our lives had  we seen such a welcome sight, '.or  we knew rest and comfort would  soon be ours, and although it was  three o'clock in the morning when  we reached the hut the coffee was  hot and ready for us. I can assure  you It was most acceptable: after  -resting a while we started again for  the Rest Camp feeling that life was}  worth   living  after   all. I  Pte. A. Miller writes:  The Y. M. C. A. appears to be  about the only institution ' connected with religion here. There are  of course other societies conducting  canteens, etc., but none so well  known and interested in the welfare  of the soldiers.  The Y. M". C. A. conducts refreshment places quite close to the front  line,'tea and biscuits are served free  to men coming out of the line who  are wounded or casualties in one way  or another. Jt sure refreshes you  and enables you to resume your way  out with increased energy. The Y  M. C. A. are sure doing good work  out here.  We   can   afford   to   be   liberal   to  such a work among our Boys.  THE Y. M. C. A.
