Oct. 23.���������When it is  considered that 120 bushels, or 2  tons; constituted the crop'taken this  season by one of the farmers on the  ,West prairie section of the Sumas  reclamation area it will not be difficult to understand why Mr. E. D. Barrow, Minister of Agriculture, had  such faith in the proposal which he  fathered and carried through' to a  successful conclusion. The land in  question was ploughed last year after  having been flooded by the Fraser  River���������a condition now guarded  against by the plan that has been  brought to fruition.  It is .also , interesting to observe  that the farmer in this particular instance received $1.00 per ton over the  :narket price on account of the high,  uiality of the oats produced. This-  'act takes' on more, than usual signif-  cance when it is understood that a  ;ood British Columbia average crop  3 somewhere in the region of sixty  bushels to the acre.  "-"Naturally" buoyed' up "with" such excellent-'returns', Mr. Barrow is. op-  imistic regarding the future of  Sumas and his plans have been developed with an eye to practical retirements. In other words he  oroposes to seed one thousand acres  )f this particular area to Timothy before the Fall days have gone, in  irder to prevent the spreading of  weeds, and with an Idea of furnish-  :ng the interest charges' from the  crop returns.  The Government owns 12,000  acres in the area, 7,000 acres of  which are lake bottom lands, and it  is Mr. Barrow's intention to crop all  the lands in the meantime and have  them revenue producing against the  The public meeting on Monday  ovoning jh still the talk of the town;  and the question of incorporation is  one of the foremost in conversation,  everywhere. All are saying thai if  it is good for one place it is good for  another, but the real question is to  decide, is it good for Abbotsford?  Not only at the present time but also  in the years to come.  In the above connection those who  the      boosting      for      incorporation  should   bo  very careful   to  give out  the.correct    information    at    public  meetings, $f>00    is the amount    stated  as,, a licence  from  banks.    There-  is at present only one    bank in Abbotsford and it is   not    known '.how  $f>00 can ho      gotten    from a    bank  wlion the act plainly states'-that      it  shall not be more than $200 for each  half year.      l'n Mission City the bylaw states that $100 each      half year  shall be the trade licence, but at the  present time the    hanks are    paying  $50, or $25 each half"year, and" this  is   considered, too  much.     It   is  understood that in Chilliwack the banks  are  paying $25  a    year or    $12.50  each half year.  This paper holds no brief for the  bank here .but in all fairness these  matters should be given ��������� out so as  not to raise false hopes. If $25 is  considered enough for Chilliwack,  how in Hie name of publicity .could  Abbotsford charge the amount of  $500?

The question of the Hope-Princeton and the Fraser Canyon routes  for the mterprovinclal highway will  probably come up for discussion, and  as it is a pretty hot subject in the  interior it will be a hard matter for  U,e government to satisfy the various  'sections of the interior.  The session is expected to be      a  short one.

Mission Band  ���������"   Is  Formed  With a membership of about twenty girls and boys between the ages of  eight and thirteen, <a Mission Band  was formed in the school room of  rth"e"-'Presbyteriari' Church' "last '"Sat-  urday^a-fternoon ��������� under' ' the supervision of-Mrs. S.

Mrs. Huston, soloist of Chalmers  Church, Vancouver, gave several  selections and led the children in  singing. Mrs. Huston also gave some  very useful suggestions in regard to  the Mission Band work.  Meetings of the Mission Band-will  be held in the schoolroom of the  Presbyterian Church at 3:30 p. m.  the first and third Friday of every  month.  Maccabees Will  Furnish Supper  Initiations and a volume of general  business occupied the members' at  the regular meeting of the W. B. A.  of the Maccabees held on Thursday  evening.  Among outside visitors were Mrs.  Nellie Pettipiece, D. D. of Vancouver  and Mrs'. R. Thompson, also of Vancouver, and Mrs. Davis of Vye.  It was decided that the Lodge  members would serve the dance  supper at the annual bazaar of the  W. A. of the M.-S.-A. Hospital, the  same as they did last year.  Arrangements are being made for  securing a visiting nurse in connection with the local Lodge.  Interested property owners of Ab-  bolsford met in the old Bank of Montreal building on Monday night and  organized the '-'Abbotsford Property  Owners' Association."'  Owners elected included: president, J. .1. McPhce; vice-president,  IT. P. Knoll; secretary-treasurer, H.  F. Thorn.    ��������� '    ,.  Prior to the election 'of officers,  the gathering was addressed by G. L.  Heller, who explained the purpose  for which they had met. In taking"  the chair,, the president suggested  that the'secretary be instructed to  secure a number of copies of the  "Village Municipalities Act" for the  use of the members.  The necessity of funds for the  work of the association was discussed, and if was thought thai very  little money would be required; and  it was' decided that an initial fee of  fifty cents would be charged.  The newly formed association has  twenty-three members, with the prospect of a number of new-names to  be added at the next regular meeting, to he held on'the third Thursday of November.  A committee of three was appointed to draft bylaws of the association,  viz., J. A. McGowan, J. Barton and  E. A. Barrett.  It was moved and carried that a  clause be placed in the bylaws  whereby the wife or husband of a  property owner would have the right  to vote at the meetings. <  The summary of the "Village Municipalities' Act" was ��������� read by G. L.  Heller, responded to by .]. J. McPheo  and later fully explained by D. C.  Durrunt,   barrister.  It was moved and unanimously  carried that the meeting go on record endorsing incorporation and  .with a view to same.  A" yote of thanks was tendered .D.  C. Durrant" for the-assistance lie had  given  by his' instructive explanation.  As a Government townsite, it has  long been felt that the town was not  receiving the improvements that  were warranted, by the amount- of  taxes paid by the ratepayers; and  that' the only solution offered for  this is in self-government, which is  incorporating under the "Village Municipalities Act." ,  The members of St. Pauls Church  came t.o    Ahbolsl'ord    on    Thursday  and held a parlor social.    There was  a large aitendance.    Those assisting  on   itoapr   KwsyjoAThebgk  on   the     programme     included     Mr.  Snashall, readings,    Mrs.  W.

It is a well known fact that  the cities���������the larger    ones   of   course���������are  quite keen on this point,    and will use every  endeavor lo have an aet    passed    permilling  the sale of beer and light wines.    Wo do'not  see how it is possible for the     governnieiil to  enact a, law granting' (he stile without authority from (he people.    There has been quite a  sirelc.li now   on   what     the   people   of   (his  province voted for.    It   may he   that it.   will  stand another stretch or two, and it may be  that it-will not.     It is a cinch (ha!, the country  people throughout   the   province arc   not as  strongly in favor of a tavern for selling beer  and light wines as are the city people; and in  rfact country people would like to see a little  tightening up of the present act.   A few more  restrictions would please a lot of people, who  .are not among the temperance people. While  the prohibitionists will tell you of the utter  failure of the present act.   It is a cinch that if  beer and light wines are   placed   before . the  people for vo'ting that it will meet the same  fate as did a similiar vote in Manitoba recently.  There sure is a feeling throughout the province, judging by reports, that a return or a  near return to the old bars is not wanted.  These various facts being known to the government places the Liberals in an awkward  position in the matter. However John 0. will  find a way or make it.   Probably.  Tt is certain that the government will soon  have to build the link, between the coast and  the interior, of the interprovincial highway,  at an early date. The information should be  all in now as to the virtues of the two most  talked routes.  The tourist traffic enthusiasts are demanding that the road be built so that the tourists  may be kept longer in the province and given  scenery that they   have never     seen from an  auto in any part of the American continent.  As to (ho virtues of the two roads it would  appear (hat the Fraser   Canyon   route is becoming more popular    every day.    Information has been given in these columns on both  of the proposed routes and if the tourist traf-  f'i-j is all that is claimed   for   it,   there is   no  doubt but that   the   Fraser   Canyon    is   the  pioper route, as it takes the tourist more into  the heart of the    province.      The   American  tourist does not want to be so near    his own  country on a long hike that it would be easy  for him to slip over the line   for his   night's  rc-st or for   luncheon    each day.     When    he  starts away from home he wants to get as far  away as lie   can   on   the   same   amount   of  gasoline and tire wear and to sec as much as  lie can. He can see his own country for over  three'hundred-, days in the year, but when he  starts for the interior of B. C. he does not want  to skirt the '19th parallel all the time.  ���������In the Fraser Valley it does not make much  rea'l difference to us which route is built,  .'but most of us have learned to love the Fraser and a long hike up its banks in our auto  would sure appeal to us. The connecting  line between the coast and Hope will be most  probably built along the Yale road, which will  be made a first-class paved highway.  When the missing link is built it '"will open  up a treasure sight for tourists and the whole  province will then reap the benefit of the  tourist traffic, because he will have to stay  longer in the province and will naturally  spend more. People locally along the road  "will thus reap the benefit instead of the coast  cities getting all the benefit.  And when the road is ...built, the .people of.  B. C. coast cities will not have to patronize  the Pacific Avenue as "much as they do now,  for grander and more scenery will be found  on the road to the interior. '  So one is led to believe that the parties now  who are doing   the   most   worrying   in    the  matter are the members of the Oliver government as it will be hard to please   both Kant-  loops and Penficton and their friends.  THK (JAHOI'ilNK TAX  Automobiles are already taxed  In  Itrftrsh Columbia  at a rate  so high as to produce  : rovt.nviio.    per    IicikI  higher than in any other province  in Canada.      Tint,  greater  proportion  of  these cars  are  used   wholly    in  and  about   the cities, when) the    roads are  i.tnule ami  iiiiiiiitained   by  the  municipal     government s;   so  that  already  the people of the I'ltloo an;    coinrllmllng    ������  very  large share of whatever part, of tl.i.v; automobile  money (������ spent on the-main  highways maintained by  lb.!  provincial  government.       Kven a.s to these wain  highways,   the   permanent  roads   lnn'e  been   lU/ifwwtcd  by  the Ottawa government  to    I he extent of. Oitltyv ;>er  cent, of the cost of paving,    while'the    invnI'cipa,l/iiloK  have shared in the balance, leaving onlv a small! proportion contributed by the provinces which  has unified upon the whole amount, of all the-, jwving contacts.  Now the Oliver government is resetting out for-a further tax on the users of autamoWp'S, slated ;u? three  cents a gallon on  the gallon, ������:wisumption.  There is a suggestion i/iat this is a ck-vwr move  on the part of Victoria to extsacl revenue Jjrom visitors to bis province, who at present use our roads  without contributing to the automobile licence fees.  This suggestion,    however, is pure buncombe.    What  rrrrr.  tourist is likely, to be so foolish as to buy his'gasoline  in riritish Columbia when he can buy much cheaper  on the United States side, apart from the new tax'  The ordinary car. can ,carry gasoline for from 150 (0  175 miles running, which mileage would give the  great majority of tourists all the travelling they are  likely to do in British Columbia on any one trip. If  tills tax is imposed it will come upon those who already are paying more than the people of any other  province in Canada for their pleasure riding. The  tourists will continue to travel free of this tax, just  as they now are freo of the cost of making and maintaining tho pavements for which our municipalities  are  in  debt.  No doubt thore is necessity at VIcturlaTor tho additional revenue which this tax would -supply; and It  is one of tho very few (axes elsewhere devised which  the Oliver government has not adopted or increased,  nut thore is the alternative of reducing the expenses  at Victoria rather thaii further increasing the taxation or n province already spending about forty dollars per head of its' population for the provincial government. As a sample of the extravagances which  might be cut off, there is that holiday trip for a friend  of the political family which . has ended in dismissal  of the frivolous suits taken to the privy council. It  will take six hundred thousand gallons of gasoline,  taxed at three cents per gallon, to pay the cost of  this trip alone!

Barrow; provincial  minister of agriculture, rocently back from a trip    to  England, has deemed it good policy to submit himself  to ah inteview in which he gave warning to the farmers of British Columbia that they need expect nothing  in the way of paternal treatment, from the government.  Just why Mr. Harrow should consider this a wise thing  to do unless, as' is indicated by the format' the interview,, he wants to head off any movemori%looking    to  government assistance for agriculture in any form, it  is hard to understand.      And just   why    the minister  should think it wise to describo all and sundry who  .are not satisfied  with  present condition:? as  "misfits  and   ne'er-do-wells"   is     quite     incomprehensible.     A  certain   farm  journal   published   in Vancouver  has  a  very poor opinion of Mr. Barrow and describes his activities, or lack of activity, in  terms that indicate a  strong conviction that the minister of agriculture    is  the weak sister of the    Oliver    administration.      Mr.  Barrow thinks  the  farmers should    solve their own  problems   by  co-operation,   which   reminds  us       that  when the big fruit growers' -co-operative was being organized last winter the    minister of    agriculture was  very slow to itentify himself with the    movement in  any way. l   The keen interest taken by the premiers  and ministers of agriculture of the Prairie'provirices  in the recent efforts to form wheat pools offers quite  a striking contrast to the coyness of Mr.    Barrow six  months ago.       The writer is quite devoid of any political   feelings  in  the matter,' but it would     appear  that  the scoldings of the  agricultural community at  a  time when  Mr.  Bowser,     the  opposition leader, is  advocating government help for. the farmers of Central  British  Columbia in solving their  transportation  problems', constitutes quite a    masterpiece of political  indiscretion.  Well, we got away from Salmon Arm a few days  this'week and went clown to Calgary and had a good  time and saw a lot of things and now we are back  and more satisfied than ever to live in Salmon Arm.  It was quite a treat to have light twenty-four hours  a day, but we will get that some day here. On Monday  we were up in the sun room on the roof of the Pal-  liser Hotel and saw nothing but dust blowing in all  directions for two hours. On Sunday we drove twenty  miles between nice barbed wire fences and over alleged roads and got a new admiration for the heroic  farmer and farmer's wife who is willing to live and,  work in the middle of the baldheaded prairie in order  that we may have bread. Truly he must love us, for  he says he, gets nothing for his crop, and considering  -,.the,matter over a period of years, that is about all he  gets. We went to picture shows in wonderful palaces  where.there- was lots of good music and singing  canaries and fancy furniture and empty, seats and  pretty ushers, but the pictures were np better than  we get here. Yes, we enjoyed our visit to the dry province that is not dry and now we are back and think  more of B.-'C. than before and have made up our  minds that if times get better, as they will, and our  readers pay up that thousand dollars of arrears on  subscriptions, we aire going to stay a long while. It  is really surprising what we could do to improve this  paper if those who are only a couple of dollars>be-  hind could make us happy this Christmas by being  paid right up to date. Oh, yes, another thing we found  out was that this little paper is as good as most of  them and. better than some, and is going to be as  good aB any as soon as times got better.���������Salmon  Arm Observer.  The British Columbia provincial  voters' list was completed last Friday. It includes a total of 195,078  names as against 171,677 on the list  last year. This year's total is somewhat smaller than that of 1920 when  an impending election speeded up  registrations to a total of 201,354.

It. .Is, however,     Infinitely more popular.    Almost anyone can talk eloquently, but it. takes  something like genius to listen wiih  intelligence.    As in all the fine arts,  however, there are listeners and listeners.    There is the artist and  the  amateur.   The former, is never found  out.    In that lies his   genius.

Perfection   in   it   brings   popularity   and  the  opportunity   to     think   of  many  things. There was' once a well-known  hostess  who    entertained   a  famous  philosopher so successfully    that he  talked about philosophy all the eve  ning instead of his grandchildren,  which had formerly entitled him to  honourable mention among the  bores. At the end of the evening,  when the learned man had gone, her  "intellectual" guests crowded round  her congratulating her on the successful way in which she had "drawn  him out." "Do you know," she con-  fessed with a laugh, "I don't think I  remember clearly anything he said.  I was just thinking "all the time what  I should do with my yellow crepe  de chine, and I have decided to have  it dyed green."  Modern dinner-table conversations barely rise above the anecdotal  and personal. The kind of conversations which used so to enchant Bos-  well would nowadays' empty the  room. If a guest must talk, and few  hostesses consider it necessary until  she herself has nothing more to  say, he must bo amusing. There is a  Car greater desire abroad to laugh  than to learn.

Bex 94  The volume of wheat uctualiy delivered to date in the prairie provinces indicates that the early crop  estimates, regarded as too optimistic, will be realized. When reports  of damage by rust in southern Manitoba and .south Saskatchewan had  come to hand,- these estimates were  largely discounted. The quality of  the early deliveries of wheat was  also anything but satisfactory. Later,  however, when the wheat began to  arrive from the more northerly and  far western areas, the quality was  found to be a good average, while  the actual yield was fully equal to  the earlier estimates. The concensus of opinion now appears to he thai  the wheat crop will amount to 4 50,-  000,000 bushels. The number of  cars being inspected at Winnipeg  averages over 2,000 per day. On the  21st September the actual number  was 2,388, that for the previous day  being 2,222, and of those 90 per  cent, were of contract grade, a much  higher percentage than for the earlier part of the season, 53.4 1 per cent,  of the crop being of contract grr.de.  The railways this year have beon  prepared to handle a larger volume  of grain than a year'ago, and it  would now appear thai, each year  thore is an advance in efficiency in  this respect.

The wheat crop of Alberta and  Manitoba has progressed so well on  account of the abundant moisture of  the early season that farmers, business men and railroad companies are  preparing for a harvest in excess of  the record one of 1915.  Prince Rupert, B.C., claims the  world's best record for a one trip  fish cafceh.

In the Province of Ontario, it is  estimated, the lumber cut in 1922  amounted to 309,000,000 beard feet,  and in addition 289,113 cords of  pulpwood. The Province of Nova  Scotia cut 125,000,000 feet. New  Brunswick 210,000,000 feet, and  British Columbia 273,146,000 board  feet.  The Dominion Express has just  effected a shipment from Haimburg  to Kobe, Japan; in 32 days.

Although the season is advancing, Untied States carriers are still hesitant uboul participating'in this trade. Up to the  third week in September boats representing a few of the companies'  have accepted charters, but these are  only a small proportion of the  number usually engaged at this  time of the year.  Efforts' are being made by wheat  producers in the     United    States to  increase  the      tariff    against Canadian wheat.  Their success or otherwise will not materially      affect the  Canadian  producer,  as  the  Fordney  Tariff has    already - resulted in the  diversion of his wheat to other markets.     During the fiscal year,  1922-  23,   Canada' exported  to  the  United  States  only   16,213,000  bushels,     as  compared with    42,324,000    bushels  in 1920-21.    On the other hand our  exports to the United Kingdom have  grown 'from   73,489,000   bushels     in  1920-21   to  190,002,000  bushels    in  1922-23.    In  addition  to  this- then,  has -been a  decided  growth in     out  exports of wheat    flour.     It    is becoming more and more evident that  Canadian wheat producers have little  cause to fear from competition from  the  United  States,   where  the  overhead cost of    production is    greater  than in Canada.    The market value  of farm land in the United States is  much  higher  than   in  this    country  and    proportionately    larger    sums  have been    advanced   by   -American  mortgage  and  loan    companies     on  this security.    The availability of so  much credit secured by land has had  a tendency to  increase land values,  and in consequence land assessment  and    taxation.    The    producer    has  therefore  to  provide  for annual  interest charges and  taxes- on a scale  which makes it more   difficult    for  him  to  produce at a profit than  is  the    case in . this    country..  Wheat  lands in Canada can be purchased for  from $20 to $50 per acre,.while corresponding    lands    in    the    United  States are valued at   from    $50    to  $250 per acre.    In  the wheat-growing areas in Canada taxes vary from  10 to 75 cents per acre, whereas in  the United States  the present average is between $1.50    an 1    $2    per  acre.    Taxation,  however,  is not so  serious a factor as interest charges.  Mortgage indebtedness has increased  at an enormous rate, as may be    instanced by the    experience    of    the  State of Iowa.    On those farms consisting wholly of land owned by the  operator and    reporting       mortgage  debt, the total amount of such    indebtedness in   1920  was    $489,816,-  739,  as   compared     with   $204,242,-  722 in 1910.    On that class of farm  loan  the interest  charges    have  increased  243  per cent., while during  these ten years the    price of   wheat  shows only a nominal advance.    Tn  the same State the rate of    taxation  increased from 68 cents per acre in  1914 to $1.49 per acre in 1922.      It  should be kept in  mind that this is  the average rate for all classes    of  farms in Iowa; on lands    which aro  suitable   for  wheat-growing  and   are  valued at from $160    to    $300    per  acre, the taxes are of   course much  higher.     Under    the    circumstances,  therefore, it can    readily be understood that the United States grower  Is   severally   handicapped   by   reason  of the high value of his land as well  a3 the high rate on municipal, county  and State taxatilon  which  lie has  to  pay.    It is proable that the president  of'tho Winnipeg Grain lCxchango had  these or slmiliar facts in mind when  in  .addressing    the    recent   annual  meeting of that body he stated with  regard to Canada that' "We have the  soil, and our climatic conditions are  such  that our wheat has  that high  protein content quality which makes  it sought for in the markets of the  world in  preference to all  other.    1  feel,     therefore,"       he     continued,  "that within  a short time   we shall  have  outstripped  all  'lompetitors   in  wheat-raising ai d that wo shall have  no reason to f any   competition  except, perhap:. th.y.t of the pampas  of South Amer'rje and the best portion of the black'area of southeastern  Russia."���������Bank of Commerce Letter.  sale of the paper and the other from  the sale, of advertising space.  Whatever In the paper does not  attract readers to buy is not a profitable thing for the owner financially.  Whatever in a paper takes up  space where an advertisement might  be printed is a direct and immediate  loss. Very little of what is called  "civic boosting" ever brings to a  newspaper a single reader. Certainly no begging proposition  does.  ' Armenians always require 'relief  so it seems, and the papers are expected to print columns of appeals.  But no no person would ever think of  buying a newspaper just to read an  article asking him to contribute  money to someone 60*0 miles away.  An account of a prize fight, baseball game, murder, election," elopement in high social circles, a horse  race, a battle or a hot debate in Con-  , gress, would sell " papers. Readers  would buy to see that sort of thing.  Yet the Philadelphia papers give  daily many columns of space on  white paper that costs them dearly  to the boosting or begging or promoting propositions. And let Philadelphia remember thai such is not  the case~-everywhere.  The journal which for a century  and a quarter has been regarded .in  all parts of the world as the greatest newspaper published is The London Times. But so far as boosting  anything in London goes, the Times  might as well be printed in Tokio.  It devotes but little of its resources  and capital to that sort of thing.  It may be contended that it is a  newspaper's legitimate business to  urge and beg and boost. But it is not  more the function of a newspaper  than of a magazine and magazines  thrive by publishing only such articles as their editors believe the public wishes to read.  The magazine tries and does secure circulation by interesting its  readers and so gets advertisements.  It publishes no Belgian, no Polish,  nor American appeals, never urges  better street paving and cleaning;  does not coax people to contribute for  the support of hospitals and colleges;  makes no demonstration for saving  babies, swatting the fly or any of  those things which daily newspapers  are constantly asked to help.  Every newspaper gives more of its  service free than almost any other  institution that is not .an endowed  charity, while at the same time it  voluntarily for what it deems to be  the public good, refuses to accept  profitable advertising.

PROCLAMATION   BY  ltHINELAND RUI-RRS  FKK1GHT RATI.S  ON  LAKRS  ARE   LOW MR  WINNIPEG, October 22.���������Lake  freight rates weakened oh 'Saturday  following 'the latest action by the  board of grain commissioners to induce United Stales vessel owners lr-  participate hi the Canadian'. grain  trade. Cargo space on the Fori  William lo Buffalo route is being  offered generally al 0 cents a bushel  rmoi rale, while at least one boat  was charlcred at 5 1-2 cenls a bushel,  a cent below  Friday:s offering.  While grain trade experts arc.not  unanimous in their views' that the  U. S. owners will accept the board's  latest concession, tho weaker tone  in the Buffalo rate is taken as significant of general opinion that the  U. S. owners will shortly engage in  the Canadian grain trade as in former years', thereby considerably increasing the number of boats competing, with a consequent reduction  in rates.  The following proclamation was  posted at Aix la hapelle yesterday on  the public buildings by tho separatists, while the new republic colors  ���������green, white and red���������floated  over the city.

Okanagfan  and   Fruit  C  onservatio  The Tlew  1������ that ol  ���������  flourlRhlne  new  fruit district  Id  the Oknnajran   Valley  near  which  Mru.  Smith   (Inset)  has ovened  her. dehydration  plant   (bottom   left)  ���������yiHD fruit products industry of Mrs. M. B. Smith  ���������* of Naramata, Okanagan Valley, is a story of  Canadian initiative that has assumed largo proportions After extensive research work and experimenting on a small scale, Mrs. Smith is this year opening  up a large plant for tho dehydration of fruit at Poplar  Grove, between Naramata and Penticton, where seventy fruit products will bo prepared instead of eleven  an sent out by Mrs. Smith from her runcb on the  benches.  The site oi the new factory is a point in the very  heart of the fruit district and convenient to the railway. A siding of the Kettle Valley Railway will be  run into  the premises.  The most important factor of the enlarged scope  of the work is that the new industry will utilize much  soft and perishable fruit that would otherwise go to  ���������waste as most of the fruit must be in a tree-Tipened  condition for dehydration and therefore much too  ripe to ship.  Mrs. Smith was visiting on the prairies in the  early stages' of the war when conservation of food  was beginning to he a vital question. She saw dried  logan berries for the first time and it led her to dwell  on the possibilities of the dehydration of other fruits  and vegetables. Later, visiting in tha Okanagan  .Valley, she waa much   concerned   over   the   large  quantity of fruit and vegetables that could not bo  shipped so, with broad vision and patriotic idea, sho  began tho evaporation of fruit. Mrs. Smith made an  extensive study of tho work and persisted, des>pito  the fact that men of experience declared that .-ho  could not dry fruit, other than apples. N'ow  she is in tho unicjuo position of being the first one  in Canada who has dried fruit, other than apples,  on a commercial basis. Her dried peach is tho  only totally peeled peach on the market, either in  Canada or tho  United States.  Mrs. Smith, being very much interested in movements to promote the practical usefulness of women,  declares that there ds a large opportunity for women  in this work. Having no desire to keep a monopoly  of the new industry of which sho may be said to bo  the founder, she hopes that all women in fruit growing districts may start small evaporating plants to  care for their surplus fruits, not only for their own  households  but  also  for export.  By dehydration a large part of the fruit and  vegetables which otherwise spoil is saved. The products are so reduced in weight and bulk that one  railway car or one ship will carry as much dehydrated  fruit as ten of fresh.  Mrs. Smith, in continuing to make a study of conditions, is opening up a new field and demonstrating  that women are the natural housekeepers of the race, mTTirfi.A iTk;rk/r\rT^/-NTfl/\ T-v-v-v   -r\mrtm  THE ABBOTSFORD POST  Cold Storage Service  r   ���������       .

In addition Mr.  Oliver wrote that, he noted the preamble of the petition contained- the  statement that it had been said in  Nelson that Hie strong possibility of  Hie Hope-Princeton route being  chosen had hastened the building of  Hie Ymir road.

Early to bed and early  to. rise  wasn't meant for everybody.  fl. Have a hobby thai will keep  your mind active for all time and you  won't have time to grow old.  10. Don't worry.

Strong support will he accorded  to the proposed provincial tax on  gasoline by ��������� Mr. David Whiteside,  ALL.A., in the event of the Minister  of. Finance, Hon. John Hart, agreeing that all mones so collected be  earmarked for the building and upkeep of the roads.  "The people of (he province,  pecially (he motorists, appear lo  quite willing to stand. Ibis  ditional lax so long as they  guaranteed that the amount collected  is used in the building of more  and belter highways'," staled the  member for New Westminster, this  morning.  Everything points' to an interesting session opening on Monday, Oct.  2 9, according lo the New Westminster member. "I shall be very much  surprised if it is a quiet session. It  will he something unusual from the  run of things during the past few  years, especially in view of I he  close approach of an election," he  stated.  Asked as lo his views on  the Pacific   Great   Eastern     Railway   question,   Mr.   Whiteside slated   that  his  position  remains unaltered from  Hie  stand   he  took   two    years    ago and  again last 3'oar    when he   advocated  that more serious attention     bo paid  to the now famous    Sullivan     report  on  the government owned railway.   .  "I   shall  oppose    any    attempt to  spend more money on this road,    for  Iho present at least," he staled. "We  are  deep  enough  as  it  is,  and  with  the prospect of an additional six to  eight  million  dollars being  required  to    replace    culverts    and     wooden  trestle- bridges  on  the existing  line,  the    government   cannot   afford    to  spend any more    money    on    extensions."  Mr.  Whiteside is still in  favor o!  scrapping   the  line   from     Squamisl  to Clinton and using the roadbed a  an  auto  tourist  highway.    The     re  mainder of the line leading to Que.;  nel and Cottonwood Canyon could :>  connected   with   a   cut-off     belwee  Clinton and Ashcroft, there conned  ing with the main line of the Canadian Pacific.  Asked as' to his' stand on the proposed eight-hour day bill, which  has been introduced by Mayor It. J.  Burde, M.L.A., Alberni, during lhi>  past ' four sessions, Mi. Whiteside  stated that he is willing to hear what  the lumber operators and loggers  have to say to this. The bill lias a  whole lot of merit in it, he claims,  but if the passage of such legislation  will tend to wipe oul the small margin of profit being made in the  lumber industry at the present time,  he would certainly vole against it.  The local member stated that he had  heard nothing definite as to the rumor current that the government  itself would introduce such an  amendment at the forthcoming session, thus' annexing the "thunder"  from the Alberni member as a means  of stengthening their hands when the  time came for the Oliver administration  to go to the country again.

McCallum-  Indian Gives Views on  Fraser Canyon Route  The following letter, written especially for the Ashcroft Journal, by  Louis James, an I'ndian of the Booth-  royd Indian Reserve, Boston Bar.  puts further light on the Frasei  Canyon route:  "I trust that you will allow me a  short space in your valuable paper  to express my views upon the much  discussed proposed highway through  this province. Although I am an  Tndian, yet I can read and write. 1  read the papers, and have read .with  considerable interest the different  opinions upon the two proposed  routes. To my mind it is most a-  niusing lo read absurd arguments  brought forward by both the Princeton and Hope boards of trade in  favor of the Hope-Princeton . trail.  In my opinion these people do not  for one minute know what they are  talking about. It is all for a purely selfish gafn, some of them having  mining and timber interests that  they want to develop. How many  of the mines have been proved?  And, fancy building a highway for  logging purposes'. If other people in  tho Princeton district want easy access to the Coast, they already have a  road through Hie States. Fancy building anoher road paralleling this that  will only benefit such a small portion  of the province, when there is such  a vast area in the north that requires  opening up. l"n my opinion the people  north and east of -.Hope should be  consulted, and Coast people left out  of the question for tho time being.  For ten years I packed over the  Hope-Princeton trail and during that  whole time it was not open more  than 4 1-2 months any one year during that time, except for snow shoes.  And the depth of snow that falls in  this vicinity is so great that it would  be impossible to do anything on it  between the middle of September and  the middle of June. So this shows  what little use It would be as a highway. The Eraser Canyon route is  practically an all the year round  road,   the  heaviest  snow   fall   being  WASHING  DISH US  IS   EASY.  when our powdered soap  combines with hot water.

Our soaps are superior in  dirt-removing qualities.  PHONE  7  su  CENTRAL MEAT MARKET  C  between Spuzzum and Boston Bar,  and that is not so heavy that a road  could not be' kept open. If the Hope-  Princeton trail is such a wonderful  route, why did not the Railway follow it? As you are aware the route  chosen by the Kettle Valley is lower than the proposed Highway, and  yet they, with all their snow fighting facilities, are blocked man winters. At Hell's Gate on the proposed Fraser route the road can follow  tho old Hudson Bay trail, which is  a good grade, and will get rid of the  difficulties, brought forward by the  knockers to this all-the-yoar-round  route. If I can be of any assistance,  I will only be too glad to do so."
