The two, block's facing  on  Essendene  Avenue.in  all-  probability; would' have seen some  buiidimg 'activity this last jsumtner  had the surveys bee^n satisfactory.  Several  surveys have  been  made  but in-osne of them appear to. con-."  form J':witjh. the -.present --survey. -If  the Gazley'block'is right then the  Commercial 'Hotel' block is wrong,  and vice versa.

Hill-Toutand'An-  derson h'lis started in business cjlo.se  to the tQwiri. Their principal y-ork  i3 the cutting 'of ties and have secured a contract which will last  for the next eight mqnths. They  have installed a 75-horse power  motor toi drive their machinery,  and have made arrangements witli  the .Western Canada Power Company to supply them with the power. They will have a small amount  of lumber for 1/Ojcal purposes as  well as ia limited ,amjount of wood  for household purposes.  LIQUOR ACT, 1910.  (Section 42)  NOTICE is hereby given that, on  the first day of December next, application will be made to the Superintendent of Provincial Police for renewal  of the hotel license to sell liquor by  retail in the hotel known as the Commercial Hotel, situate at Abbotsford,  in the Province of British Columbia.  Dated this 25th day of Oct/obwr.  1912. -  jambs Mcelroy & Co.  Sash and Door Factory will be  Erected and Operated by  Mr. Willband  As ' a' manufacturing centre there  is mo doubt about'the future of the  town. All that'is''required is the.  stro/ng amd united effort to boost  the toAVin for whait i*t was intended.  There is mo better .apportionity ioi  any town in the Fraser "Valley than  there is -for'Abbotsford to boo3t  for manufacturers to come and establish here. \  'There is am" example of the value 'Of, the town illustrated in the'  fact .'thlM'-'M-r iWillbiand',who' was" >  resident of the town for ycai*3 Wi  the lumber busin'ess, and has been  away from ithe 'town' for years.  This week he comes back to our  little towin, and completes the purchase of two acres f.or a site lor a  sash amd ldo,ar fa/ctiory,- so it ,is uj>  stood by those who* are possibly In  a 'pooits'iom to sjay.      x    '  dt is uinderstoiod that he will begin the work of building almost  immediately. He expects to bo  ready for work some time m the  spring. It takes sopae time to get  everything in readiness.  A sash and dopr factory will give  immediate employment " to anywhere from 25 'to 100 men, who will  have to reside 'i|n the.town, 30 as  to be ready for their work each  day of the week. All will wish Mr.  Willband the best of luck in his  undertaking ia*nd trust it will only  bs the forerunner of other businesses of a similar nature starting in Abbotsford.  Mr. W.

' .SUFFPvAG-E IN CANADA  The English Women's Social and  Political Union have issued the foT-  lowing, statement wiich regard to  their recent iiintcrview--1 iwiith Mr,.,  Borden, the Prime Minister ot the  . DominiiiO(n| pi Oalpadja-. ' ���������  "The ���������interview with Mr. Bpr-  den leaves' the .Women's Social and  Political Union very hopeful of the  speedy enfranchisement of the women of Canada. The franchise for  women is demanded for each .of  the provincial legislatures', but'of  much greater 'importance is it <hat  women should secure the franchiae  for the Dominion Parliament. It id  this franchise which it is within Mr.  Borden's power bo give or with'  hold. .  "Judging by 'Mr. Borden's rpply  to the deputation, a vigorous agitation for votes for women, will  soon meet with success; for the only obstacle he suggested is that tne  franchise for the provincial paiiia-  ���������ments haa for the past f.'fteen vicars  been accepted as the franchise for  the Domin!:'|o|n parliament. This  cannot be regarded as any obstacle  at iali; because nothing more is need  ed to satisfy the wiornen-s demand  than the passage of an act provid ���������  ing that for the purpose of elect  ������������������ng the Dom'nlioln parliament the  names of all duly qualified wo men  shall be added'to the existing register of male voters.  "The objects qf the Women's Social land political Union being to  secure votes fior women in all soif-  governing parts (of the Empire, every .opportunity wjif be taken of  strengthening; the organization in  Canada, where the Union already  has representatives. Australia and  New (Zealand iha,ve .emjoyed -the'  benefits of votes for. women for  sonie years, and it w.ould mot , be  right for Canada to lag behind "  The reporter is always after news,  that interests the'town. He, of  course, asks everyone he sees aiid  knows fiotr-news items. This week  on his rpnnds he happened to ask  a citizen what was going on in Abbotsford this week. Quickly "am'e  the reply, "The board-bill." That  settles it.   He is not Irish.  The stores will be closed on Monday next, it being Thanksgiving  Day.  ��������� ������     ������������������  THE    MARKET.  The provincial government has  decided to supply -stnAip'mg po v-  der free of charge to bqria fide settlers upon qondittons that shall be  equitable both *fco the settler and  also to the government. This is :a  step in the right direction and will  mark ia jnew .era/in the history of  settlement on the lands;,of the province. The "cost off clearing the  heavily timbered lands of the province has undoubtedly prevented  many from taking ;up Lanjd ard  making a homo for himself. J/t  costs all the wayfr/oni $1,00 to $200  to clear the land and makes the  settling of iqome J and very expensive to the intending settler. On  the ground that cleared iajnd is  a very valuable asset ;.to the settler  and helps out the conn-try it had  and helps out the country it had  been represented several years ago  that freight charges be somewhat  reduced, mow comes the free powder. ��������� .  We may expect to see more Und  cleared during the next five years  in the Fraser Valley than has been  cleared in the past twenty, years,  cleared in the past twenty, year-*.  The McBride government are to  be congratulated in this respect  and it is now hoped that some of,  the lands in the newer parts of the  province will be thrown open so  that a settler will know just: where  A large (attendance, big supplies  and brisk bidding   in   the  pouitrv  line were the outstanding features  of   the   New Westminster mackc*.*  Friday.   Due chiefly to the near approach1 <of Thanksgiving Day Lhere  was lain  active  demand  for bird's,  arid' prices' were  somewhat  lower  than  last week, the   supply being  heavy.

The importation of reindeer into  Northern'Canada is not altogether an  experiment, because In the neighboring territory of Alaska, imported  reindeer and their off-spring have  now' for some time flourished and  proved their usefulness. They were  imported into Alaska- by the United  States Government,'just, as they are  being imported into 'the Mackenzie  District ,by our Department'of the Interior. , -  In Alaska the,- .reindeer have increased rapidly; they . have found  there abundance o'f suitable food;  they have: proved-useful, as-beasts of  burden, especially for prospectors  and,travellers visiting remote parts  of the wild-country; and they have  supplied a needy -class 'of 'the population with a most valuable article  of-food ��������� reindeer milk; not to' take  Into account the meat always .available  by  killing  an  animal.  The-traveller in the North has had  to depend upon a dog-train. These  dogs are difficult to manage, and  their food almost invariably has to  be carried '��������� a serious drawback  where transportation' facilities are so  limited.

THE FIRST AIRMAN  The-true-inventor of.aerial navigation was Lieutenant, afterwards General  Meusnier, -a  prodigy,   who' was  made >a ,member-: of- the Academie des  Sciences:at. the age of 29 on account  of his work--in aerostation, and was  killed at'the siege of Mayence in'1793  He   was   a   true--scientific   initiator.  Through  not following, the  lines, he  laid   down   aerial   navigation   lost  a  eentury groping about fatuously and  conducting    experiments    absolutely  without  method:    He   elaborated -all  the laws governing the stability of an  airship, .and his designs-and calculations   are   preserved   Ie   the   French  War Office in the shape of drawings  and mathematical formulas.    He not  only evolved the ballonnet,- he originated the triangular suspension system  today    considered ��������� imperative '<  and  universally   adopted,   and   the   "revolving oars" or the screw propeller  ,(1784), now used for driving steamships as well, and he indicated  the  point at which the- screw should be  Installed.   Passing with bare mention  over" GIffard's ��������������������������� balloon    (1852),   the  first dirigible, run by the dangerous  steam engine, near the gas, and Du-  puy de Lome's-improvements on this  (1872),   and   the   TIssandier  balloon,  driven by electric motor  (1883), we  come to the dirigible La France, built  in   1884-85   by   Captain   Renard   and  Captain Krebs.    This .balloon is indisputably the-starting point of ������������������practical .-aerial" navigation,   ind   it   Has  ���������served as the model for all who have  followed.  - Eight tnousand .-gallons, of fresh  water are used in .a large battleship  daily.
