Alberta potatoes are  moving to the east fairly well with  buyers paying the farmers 'HO'/, per  bush, sacked F. O. B. cars. Just  recently the northern part of the  tlie province was rather hard bit by  frost which will affect the yield to  some extent while in the south plant-  Blair,  Mr.   Davidson  and   Miss    Ro-   higs were not as heavy as last year.  Tho apple situation shows little  change.'. Many jobbers have sold a  good many cars to retailers throughout the country and others arc after  !.lio business- while still others have  not yet bought but aro playing a wait  ing game in an effort to see just  how things, are going to go.  One  'wholesale  grocery  house    of  i  Saskatoon has.- sent a circular let-  tor to the retail trade in which, it is  stated^ that "the crop in British Columbia is not satisfactory this year"  and it goes on to say that, "this  points to a very uneven grade with  a large percentage of small apples."  This firm is quoting prices as follows on Washington' stock of which  it has bought a large block totalling  nearly one hundred cars. "We quote  you as follows, for No. 1 stock perfectly graded, boxes and individually  wrapped. These will average better than fancy. Car lots, F. O. B.  your station (Rostheru) per box  $1.'73; half car lots F. O. B.# Saskatoon $1.65; -200 boxes or less F.'O.  B. Saskatoon,'$1.70.' If you want  No. 2 stock (C grade) as was handled in Saskatoon last year Ave can  ;ci.uotQ,,you���������Jj.^. pjer, bo::-;.less.''  The organization, which quotes the  above is sending out similar circulars from their other houses with, of  course, the prices worked out on the  differential in freight. ;,  It appears' that the jobbers who  have not-bought know that a good  many cars of Washington apples have  been purchased and therefore fi^urr  ed that B. C. growers would have to  sell a little later at what the jobbers  choose to offer for they think that  we will "be up ^gainst it" in marketing this year's crop.  While prices arc advancing across  line as can be seen by reading the  North Yakima telegram several well  informed apple dealers here look follower prices on this side of the border. There is one thing certain however, and that is Ontario is not figuring at all prominently in the apple  deals' now being made and that retailers everywhere are looking to the  west for their apples. This is encouraging.  There is little demand being manifested at the resent time for apples  of any kind, but nevertheless jobbers display a keen interest when  winter apple prices are talked about.  Your Ad. in This Paper  MT.  LEHMAN NOTES  Mrs. Wodrow and daughter, Jean,  of Vancouver, spent tho holidays with  Mrs. Woodrow's sister, Mrs. George  McCallum.  Mr. Hugh Oil lis spent Sunday in  Vancouver.  BECAUSE  THE 'RIGHT  PEOPLE  ARE  LOOKING FOR YOUR AD.  If you COULD (although, OP 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" anyone lrhq didn't want to buy- . That's the beauty  of the 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.

A. BATES, -        - Editor and Proprietor  FRIDAY,   OCTOBER' 20,   1916  The question of recruiting continues to be a serious, one in  in many parts of Canada. Many men whose services are of  the greatest value to Canada and to the Empire are volunteering from a sense of duty for service overseas, while thousands  of untrained young men, who could be spared, are not responding to the calls of the recruiting agents.  There are young men today who are luxuries to their families, to their occupation, and to the country, who If they enlisted  for service at the front would make some of our most handsome  soldiers and backed by their physique would no longer be a luxury but form a part of tlie pride of the nation, showing that he  appreciated the fact that he was a Britisher.  People are now awakening to the clanger to the country of the  haphazard, happy-go-lucky way of enlisting, and are thinking  far more favorably of conscription han they were some six or  twelve months ago. Some arc now even advocating conscription who a few months ago laughed at the method-  LOST���������KODAC between Glover  Station and Abbotsford'in the  road September 17th , 1916;  The finder will please take  tothe Royal Bank at Abbotsford  and receive a reward of $10.00  J. R. Berry, Sardis, B. C.  JOSEPH TALKS  Hon.  Joseph Martin has. surely had another hallucination!  -He says that Sir Wilfrid Laurier has conveyed to him the fact  that if the Liberals are returned to power they will have Reciprocity.    In view of the fact of the stand that the United States  has taken during the present European war, we do not think  that Reciprocity with that country would be any more popular  v.ith the Canadian people today than it was the last Dominion  election.    Another  thing we  have  noticed  is  that  when   the  Hon. Joseph says that Sir Wilfrid tells him something, we can  safely bank on the very reverse being true.        The past has  shown that, the present leader of the federal 'house and Joe  Martin "don't understand each other sufficiently for confidential  communication, and our candid opinion is that Sir Wilfrid will  not have the Reciprocity plank in'his platform when the next  dominion election comes around.    Coming from any other prominent Liberal there might be something to it, out from Hon.  Joseph Martin it is different.        '  ���������  , The government says to the producer on the soil, be thrifty  and produce more, and there it ends so far as the government  goes; but the farmer aiid the fruit grower gets busy and works  hard, giving nature all the possible opportunity to produce an  abundant crop. When the abundant crop of fruit comes in the  Fraser. Valley, the. fruit growers' difficulties of marketing begins:  That is 'where it should end, and to him it should -be the re-  munera:ive-part of his work. The fruit business in B. C, and  particularly in the Fraser Valley,, will never be a success until  some qthsr systematic method of marketing is put into practice.  We believe the government should guarantee a certain price to  the grower, provided he puts up his fruit under certain conditions which under good shipping facilites should reach the prairie markets fit and fresh. ���������  The counting of the soldiers' vote is in progress this week and  all are awaiting the result. Such a large number of votes will  be sure to make some politician's heart ache for the next five  years���������it means to him down and out, with no come back.  THE MAIS WITH THE SORE THUMB  See the man who is wailing and gnashing his teeth making a  spectacle of himself generally.  He is a man with a sore thumb.  Not literallly: not a boil or a felon or a bee sting; but figur-,  atively. Figuratively, the man with a sore thumb is a man with'  a grouch or grudge.  A long time ago, somebody did him ill, or he thought something did���������which is the same thing.  He resented it, and fell to brooding over it. It lay in his  mind like an undigested meal in the stomach of a dyspeptic; It  decayed there and sprea dpoison through his system, as such  things usually do���������the thing fastened itself on his system and  grew. Presently it became as big as. himself, or even bigger. It  consumed him, filled his thoughts night and day, colored every  view like a pair of blue glasses���������tainted his motives and directed his arts.  He thinks, poor fellow, that nobody realizes what is back of  his acts and opinions. But���������again, poor fellow!���������he is mistaken  for EVERYBODY realizes it.  He goes about assailing the motives and critizing the acts  of those whom he believes are his enemies, though they may  be better friends of his than HE is, and of course he presents  his views as the unbiassed and uncolored opinions of a disinterested man. And of course everybody knows them for what  they really are and judges them accordingly.  The poor man is to be pitied, not blamed. He is sick���������mentally sick���������as sick as any man with a disordered liver. The  possession of his Grudge has colored all his thoughts and all  his-motives, and he.has become the most pitable of spectacles  A Living, Moving, Perambulating Grouch.  The pathos of it lies in the fact that though he.believes his  counsel is taken at its face value, it is not so taken because  everybody sees the mental jaundice that makes it valueless.  ��������� While there is life there is always hope and the'patient recovers and becomes human again; and then all his friends���������if  has any left by that time���������are glad and he is received in good  company once more. F  Mr. Joseph Martin, K. C, in an  address before,the-Vancouver Centre  Liberal Association on Thursday evening, October 6th, made a statement to the.effect that he had been  authorized.by Sir Wilfrid Laurier to  announce that in the event of the Liberals being returned to power in  the Dominion thoy would remove the  tariff from all agricultural, lumbering, mining and fishing machinery.  Dealing -with the general question  of free trade and protection, Mr. Martin said his recollection went back to  the  parliament of  1878,   whon .as  a  member of  the   Mouse of  Commons  for Winnipeg,  he hoard  tlie appeals  of-Conservative free traders like Sir  Charles Tuppor join with the manufacturers for protection for Canada's  infant  industries.    The  infants   had  grown to prodigious size on government pap, sinco then,  but they had  steadfastly refused to grow up. Thoy  had  bandod together so that Canadians, who are an agricultural people  first and foremost, have to pay enor-  muosly more  than  their rivals     for  agricultural implements.       Not only  does   the   Canadian   Government  tax  tho Canadian grower when he wants  to buy an implement for his own use  but it'taxes him still further as to  enable the  Canadian   manufacturers  to sell implements cheap to the wheat  growers  of  Russia  and  other  countries.  The only excuse for protection, argued Mr. Martin, was'if it- could be  shown  that  the  disadvantages   were  compensated  for by  advantages    in  bringing about higher prices for our  products.     But  what  were  the  products of British Columbia? They were  copper, gold','silver,  lead, zinc, lumber and fish the prices of which were  all fixed outside of the province, and  were not helped by a protective tariff  The people of British Columbia were  bearing a load of taxation as a sort  of sacrifice, not to enrich themselves  but to enrich the wealthy provinces  of the East.    Instead of helping   the  mineral,  lumber and  fish  industries  here.protection was  making it hard  for the  miner,  the  lumberman,   the  agriculturist   and- the   fisherman   of  this province, who had to pay more  for his machinery    and    equipment  than his competitor on the other side  of the boundary  Mr. Martin wound up his speech  by declaring that Sir Wilfrid had  authorized him to announce that if a  Liberal Government is returned in  the coming federal. elections it will  remove the tariff.  {W  'll'.jj  SI  If an advertiser could make every advertisement, and every word in it, do its best work for  him, he would make a record and invariably hit  the bull's eye. Perhaps such a score is not possible, but the rifle with which he shoots, may be the  best possible, thus enhancing his chances for a  perfect score.  The one best rifle, the nearest to perfect in advertising, is'the newspaper. Others have been  tried and are being,tried by new and inexperienced advertisers; but "as they watch results and  grow in wisdom, they put their faith primarily in  the newspaper.

In Mission City we all know what bread is  costing per loaf.  In Winnipeg a 2 0-ounce loaf costs  seven c.6nts.  In Edmonton the baker gives 12  loaves for a dollar instead of 14 as in  the past.    ,  At Calgary a pound and a half loaf  is selling for eight cents. Outside of  Toronto this is the cheapest bread in  Canada.  In Nelson  bread  takes    its    first  change since the war began and now  sells at three one pound loaves for  twenty-five cents.  <������������������-���������  In Cranbrook the average for some  months   has   been   three  one  pound  loaves for 25<*  At Montreal bread sells at ten  cents a loaf. The last raise was a  month ago when it was nine cents a  loaf.  At Saskatoon the baker sells 14  loaves for one dollar.

During the Spanish-American War, in the U. S. Army regulations, tobacco was officially classified as "Officers' "Supplies."  It was considered a luxury.

The  man who had never gone without tobacco, and. who could fill  his pouch or-case at the street corner, still thought tobacco a  luxury. , -  "It was Sir Frederick Trebes, during the South African War-  who made people understand that for the soldiers tobacco was  a necessity.' A man hunger, he can suffer cold, fatigue and  wounds; these things he can endure if he can smoke.  "I have ben a looker-on on seven wars, and I find it so with  each of them, and with men of all races. Give them tobacco  and there is" no. hardship that they will not cheerfully suffer.  So with the/purpose of your fund, J, for one, am heartily ii. accord.  "If the glorious record  of the Canadian Troops has been  made on short rations of tobacco, we may feel confident thai  well supplied with it they will in a short time Oe in Berlin  -which'is the heartfelt wish of, (Signed) Richard Harding- Davis.
