SAVES TIME AND MONKV  automobile,  long-  get a  an  nol  If you haven't got an  - get   one.  If you have one, that is no  er good enough, get rid of it-  new one.  Henry Ford saws this nation need,1;  thirty million automobiles and that  will  be the saturation point.  ">     One automobile  for    every    fhroo  ['"'individuals in tlio nation    would    b������  'about right.  '   It would not be extra-  *��������� vagance,  for automobiles don't    eat  anything when no working.  . Cars, the best,    are    cheaper th������.n  they* have been in    years.    ' And    in  endless    ways    improvements    have  been* made.   <  Cars last longer, use less gaso9ine,  are simpler in construction, simpler  in  handling.  Whether you buy one or not, it is  your duty to make yourself acquainted with the products" of* ingenuity,  and to awaken your children's interest, in the progress of mechanical  genius.  "Every one    understands    what the  automobile has done  for the human  - race. It has made men ' free by  making them independent of distance and time.    It    enables-a    man  ��������� living twenty miles from seashore or  lake front to use the lake or sea as  though he lived at its edge.  It has supplied business   men with  ���������   - an offset. to    increase wages'.      The  driver can do for his employer    with  .   his truck .ten times what he used    to  do with a team-of horses.'  The.representative of a business  house in his light running business  car can make himself ten times as  valuable as he used to be.  ,Get an automobile. If you were  an ostrich running over the hot sand  with heavy feet and little, useless  wings, and if somebody offered you  a pair of- real wings that would enable you to fly, you would, say "Give  me the wings���������riever mind the.  . price.'' ���������  What real wings would be to  ostrich an automobile is to you.  There is no question    about  being able to afford an    automobile.  No man that-amounts to anything, no  family that values happiness and united-enjoyment of the same pleasures,  can afford hot to    have an    automo-  ,    bile.  ���������  To promote-the buying ofautomo-  . biles means ��������� doing one per    cent for  those  that  manufacture automobiles  and ninety-nine per   cent   for    those  that use them.  Before the ��������� automobile came,  human beings were limited- to the  front and back yard and a mile or  two around. With -the automobile  the entire nation can visit the entire  nation. To the edge of the sea or  lake, or to the .mountain top, from  ��������� the-heart of the city, means merely  "stepping on the gas."  People talk of the danger of. the  automobile. There is infinitely less  danger in. automobiles than in horses.  In proportion to the numbers that  use the automobile, accidents  fewer than they were when  horse alone was used.  An  automobile is  a machine  YOU can control.      If    you    make a  mistake,-it is YOUR    mistake.    The  ma.chine obeys, stops and starts when  you say so.    Not so with the horse.  Buying a machine is not extravagance for a man that has or can get  money to buy it. It is like putting  money out at compound interest and  'at .the highest interest rate.  What is the value    of   your    own  -happiness?      The automobile wisely  used, doubles and trebles the length  of your /life.  What is it worth to save nervous  lorce and energy? An automobile  does that.  What is the value of an automobile to you and your family, of the  beautiful drives through the country,  of all the inspiration that comes of  seeing the earth on which you live?  An automobile gives to its possessors, to the united and happy family,  a life worth living.  ��������� And for the automobile there is no  substitute, as for a bird there could  be no substitute for a pair of wings.  You have your choice to crawl or  fly.  Get an automobile and fly.���������Exchange.  med for water power to run a saw,  usually the. old type of upright/saws.  How he Clot Cash.  When the farmer wanted cash he  hitched up.a couple of yokes oi  oxen and a leading horse to his high  timber wheels and , loaded up a pine  log and carried It to a mill, usually  in a town, where he could spend the  cash for family groceries.  The neighborhood stills- made  'apple and poach brandy that seldom  sold for more than f������0 emits a gallon.  Whisky was known only in the hotel  bars of the country towns, and  whisky then sold for 32 to '15 cents a  gallon by the barrel as there was no  internal revenue tax and no restriction    as to distilling.  There are men now not much  over fifty who wore blue fustian ��������� in  their early days. But the railroad  came and the Civil War and a change  came over the whole section.. Tho  spinning wheels and the looms were  discarded. No more cotton was grown  for the sandy soil offered a chance to  grow early vegetable crops for the  North, and the local option laws  stopped the brandy stills after the  price went' up under the internal revenue tax. Farmers handled .more  cash and bought all their dry goods  in town. ;  Kg'.tt's Currency  For years the townspeople who  wanted eggs had to1 go to the dry  goods stores' for them, as the farm-'  ers' wives bought their dry ��������� godds  with eggs.' But the railroads soon  changed that. The grocers were glad  to pay cash for eggs and ; shipped  them in cases' North, and the farmers increasecl their flocks until the  egg'business has become an important.business and the price keeps  along with the advance or depression of egg prices in the Northern  cities. Eggs sold at 10 cents a dozen and butter at 10 cents a pound.  Now- for eggs one usually pays about  GG cents a dozen in the winter and 30  cents in the flush of the early summer laying, when the cold storage  men are loading up. Butter often  gets to 8 5 cents a pound and seldom  less than  50 cents.  Tbe farmers now ride in- automobiles, but at the end of the year do  they have more cash in hand , than  (hey had in. the,old days of the timber cloth and the blue homespun  cloth?  | TIM*' TO PLANT   STRAWBERRIES  The best time to set strawberries  is from early fall to early December,  Strong plants    set "in    October    will  make a fair crop next    spring.    Fci  home   gardens,   make the rows thi'ci  feet.    For field and horsepower cul  tivation rows should    be ' four    fee'  apart. ' In each case fifteen to elghi  een inches is a good distance to sol  the plants, in the rows.   ��������� The   "soil  should be well prepared    some   time  before   the plants   are set and given  cultivation at intervals between pre-'  paration  and planting.  The .fertilization    of    strawberries  requires   good  judgment.     Fertilizer  Is supplied to    supplement    deficient  plant food elements,  and    as a rule  the host practises in the fertilization  of other crops in each    locality    will  serve as a guide.    On the other hand  nitrogen must be used with caution,  since-this element may .on some soils  induce too much leaf growth and soft  berries.    Use 8 to 10 per cent, phosphoric acid, 2 to 6 per cent, nitrogen,  and 5 to 10 per    cent,    potash,    the  quantity and proportion  of each  clement being adjusted    to    the soil's  needs; * A minimum    application    is  about 500 or .1,000    pound .application, cultivate into the soil and keep  the field, free of .'weeds    through the  summer.  Do not use lime just before or  just after fheplants are set. It is injurious to the' plants. If, however,  the,soil is in, poor physical condition,  lime may be used with a crop of cow  peas or soy beans grown the season  before tbe strawberries are set.  -When your telephone is Ml accidentally off  the hook, it registers the' same as a call at central.  If the operator gets no response lo her "Number,  Please," the number is handed over to the repairing forces as being out of order. All this.involves  tests, reports and time. In the meantime, no one  gets you on your telephone.  'Off I lie nhook" is a very common  tcrruplion, to telephone service.   By  cause-of i lithe exercise  of care in this connection you will" protect your  service and avoid inconvenience   lo yourself and  'others.   , ���������-.���������; -,-^y^^  British Columbia Telephone Company  FIELD PIOAS  One of-the prime reciuisit.es of good  farming is diversification of crops.  It is benficial to.the soil if we alternate if possible deep and shallow  rooted crops, legumes and cereals.  Diversification of crops works out  financiallyto the ben fit of the farmer in that his risk' is divided, or in  terms of the oldsaying, "It pays not  to have your eggs all in one basket."  Field Peas could be used to advantage by a, great many farmers in this  rotation of crops. " They are legumes  and have power to take free nitrogen  from the air and store it in the nodules of their roots, which ,/upon decomposition enriches' the soil. The  soil following field peas is left in  good condition and can be . followed  by potatoes, roots or cereals. Better  crops of peas are harvested after the  soil becomes inoculated with -the  bacteria particularly suited to , peas.  This bacteria can be .obtained from  laboratories put. up-in the same way  as the cultures obtained from clover  and alfalfa, however, it* is "very seldom used.���������Experimental". ".

N . ,  WHAT  DO YOU AMOUNT TO?  aw  tho  that  Say, fellow, let's take a little walk  out to the edge of the town and sit  down in the October sunshine and  ask ourselves a few questions. The  idea is to find out just how -much we  amount to in the community; just  how much we are doing or have,  done for Mission City:      >,  Here is a list of questions we' are  going to ask: -. ' ,  Do I ever attend a school exhibition or take any interest in the  public   schools'?  Do'*I ever go to church or help In  any of the church activities'?  Have I ever given my time to soliciting funds for any welfare . or  civic  enterprise?  Do' I call on my sick and shut:in  fellow-citizens?  Do l help in causes from which I  derive no personal gain or are all my  acts prompted by selfish motives?.  Do I devote more time to the pursuit of my own pleasure than I do to  looking after my family's wefare?  Have I recently told a fairy story  to a little child or spoken to a dirty-  faced youngster on the village  street?  How many genuinely charitable  deeds have I performed since the  first of the year?  Have I listened to slander, gossip,  and false accusations against my  neighbors without saying a word in  protest?  Do I live within my income and  pay all my bills promptly?  There are just ten simple little  questions. Answer them honestlv  and add up the sum total. Then see  how much you amount to in the  community and how much you will  bo missed when they cart you out to  the cemetery.  DISCRIMINATION  > As we understand the new storage  in transit privilege for B. C. onions  and apples, is as follows: Cars of  onions and apples may be placed in  cold storage in Calgary, Lethbridge,  Regina, Moose , Jaw and, Winnipeg  providing they are pouted after coming but of cold storage to poincs  east of Port Arthur, IT.

Tn a recent article appearing in-the  Bulletin we remarked that in our  opinion cars of produce consigned to  wholesale houses should not be subject to brokerage commission. This  point has been challenged by several  brokers and our reason for making  the above remark has been asked for.  A broker is the agent of a shipper,  who sells the shippers' wares ar a  commission agreed upon. He usually collects and remits the product of  his sale, deducting his commission.  When a broker fails to . make a sale  and turns.produce over to a friendly  wholesaler to sell at ��������� what he can  get for it, he performs no service tp  his cl&nt, and therefore in our'opin-  ion is not entitled to deduct any commission.  , When a car of apples is sent ��������� to a  broker in Toronto, Montreal, Chicago, New York, or Great Britain, the  broker responsible watches, for a favorable market at auction, or sells  by private treaty, in either case'he  performs the services charged "for.  There is no auction market on the  prairies', and brokers, when unable  to sell, have no option but to consign.  We again repeat, that we do not  think lie has earned his commisson  when he does not sell for his client.

Basketball Season  Opens at Milner  (From   Fraser   Valley   Record")  The ��������� Mission teams got away to a  flying start last Friday in the newly  formed.Fraser Valley Basketball league when they met the Langley ball-  tossersT at Milner.  The girls' team played first, and on  their own floor the Langley girls  took the lead and by half time had a  comfortable margin. The Mission  girls soon accustomed themselves lo  the strange floor in the second half  and had the advantage of its play,  with the "result that " they forced a  draw of 9 all when the final whistle  blew.  The second game was between the  B. teams in which the Mission boys  were at their best and won easily  by a score of 18 to 9. The-winners'  are a speedy bunch of players and on  their present form should be near the  top at the   end of the season.  The A teams played the last game  of the evening in which the Mission  boys were victorious by the close  score of 2 0 to 21 The" game was fast  throughout and checking very close,  and the verdict was in doubt till the  final whistle. The boys all played  well and on their" own floor should  come out on top again. Beaton    and  ' Cox did the scoring for Mission,  while Allan and Galliford held the  opposing  forwards'    well   in     check.

AI'PLUS AND O.MONS  VOU THE WINTlflK  We are advised that apple growers in the Kootonay districts am ror  fusing to pick their appio.H, inilori-j  they can be guaranteed 78^ per box  for them. (The 78<4 represents Nicest of placing them in tho box).  Also that many onion growers in the  Okanagan Valley will not romovi1  their onions from the field because  the price does not warrant them doing so.  While there is reason in the attitude, we strongly urge the Kooleiuiy  growers to pick and store their good  winter apples. Signs are not lacking tlmt point to a better market in  'the near future. If the growers were  in, control'of their output, wo .would  not be selling apples at a price little  over freight and commissiun.  Onions are not over-produced  thi--  year.

M^ Gill's New Cfjancel/or  JAMES MSGlLL"  rounder of #  Hc Gill UnjVersify  Although ��������� the centenary/celebrations at Montreal indicate'' that Mc-  Gill University is already a hundred  years old, the roots - of that great  educational . institution reach still  further into the past.. In the fascinating volume "McGill and* Its  Story" just published, Cyrus Mac-  Millan, the author, states that the  Bi-itish settlers in Lower Canada,  after the conquest of Quebec were  eager that their children should  have at least an - elementary education. It was felt, too, that in the  -unrest and the' uncertainty of the  period immediately following the  American Revolution Mt .*was not  advisable to**send students in search  of higher' professional training to  the universities of the United States,  which in the days of their British  allegiance had attracted Canadian  0tudents in large numbers.  Efforts were accordingly made to  establish a system-of free schools  ���������with the hope that later a university  might be founded. As a result of  the agitation for the providing of  educational opportunities in Lower  .Canada, The Royal 'Institute- for the  'Advancement of Learning., was established under this ' Act, the King  gave directions for the establishment "of a competent number of  Free Schools for the instruction of  children in the first rudiments of  useful learning; and also as occasion  should require for foundations of a  more comprehensive nature." Accordingly, elementary free schools  were soon erected in different parts  of the Province, one-room buildings  of cedar logs. Indeed, they were  mere log-huts, but they provided the  first free English Education in  Lower Canada, and laid the foundation for a Canadian nationality. The  Secretary's salary was always many  months in arrears, and he frequently  complained, with unfortunately but  little satisfaction, that not only had  he given his time for some years  without remuneration, but that he  had expended even his own fuel and  candles. It was not unusual for  teachers to be censured "for not  keeping school at .all/' or for giving  too many holidays, or for tardiness  in opening school in the morning  and eagerness in closing it in the  afternoon. At least one teacher was  ���������warned that his "arrears in salary  would not be paid and that he would  'be instantly dismissed "if he did :no!  treat his wife with. greater kindness." ������������������.���������-.' ������        ^        A J  The Royal Institution for the Advancement of Learning supervised  the establishment of McGill College  and directed it in its infancy, for  under the Act of 1801 all property  and money given for educational  purposes in the Province of Lower  Canada was placed, under its control.  James McGill is described by his  ypontemporaries as of "a frank and  social temperament"; in -figure, "tall  and'eommanding/ handsome in youth,  and becoming somewhat''corpulent in  his old age," and in his I leisure  -"much given to reading.". James McGill died'in 1913 and in his will'bequeathed to the Royal Institution for  the Advancement' of Learning, in  trust, the sum of ������������������10,000 and his  Surnside Estate of forty-six acres,  cog-ether with the dwelling house  and other buildings for the erection  on the estate, and the endowment,  of a  Utiiversity or  College.  The first Principal of McGill was  the Reverend;, George Jehoshaphat  .Mountain, who-was appointed Principal in 1824 while the university  was only a name. The official opening did not take place till June 24th,  IS29, and was attended by what the  contemporary press called a,gathering of "numerous and respectable  individuals." Anxious years:marked  the early history of McGill,' due to  lack of funds and quarrels between  the Board of the Royal Institution  and the Governors of the College.  In November, 1848, the Governors  had only the sum of ������54 at their  disposal. They divided it between  the Bursar and the two Lecturers  in proportion to the amount of salary in arrears and as a result the  Lecturer in French, M. Montier, received ������2 14s. as his share from  January 1st, 1848, to November 29th,  1S48. That was the full amount of  salary received by him during the  year; but he still, says the author,  had his cow and his garden!  Dr. D. . C. ��������� Maccajum wrote an  account of medical student life about  this time. "A large proportion of  the students," he 'said, "were men  verging on, or who had passed,  middle age. Indeed, several of them  were married men and the heads of  families. There vms sufficient of  the youthful, howew.r, to keep things  lively, 'Footing Suppers,' practical  jokes, and special country excursions  to secure material for practical anatomy were of frequent occurrence.  The last, involving as it did a certain amount of danger, commended  itself particularly to the "���������> daring  spirits of the class, who were always  ready to organize and lead an excursion having that object in view.  These excursions were not at v. all  times successful, and the participators in them were sometimes thwarted in their attempts and had to beat  a precipitate retreat to save themselves from serious threatened injury- '��������� .    ���������   r.-.--;,-s&-.- ' -.'-.',  The first real progress was made  when the late Sir-William, Dawson  became Principal. "When I accepted  the -principalship of McGill," he said  in his reminiscences, "I had not  been in Montreal, and knew the college and the men connected with it  only! by reputation. I first saw it  in October, 1855.   Materially it was  represented by two blocks of unfinished and partly ruinous buildings; s'tanding amid a wilderness _ oi  excavators' and masons' ' rubbish  overgrown with weeds and bushes.  The grounds were unfenced and wera  pastured at will by herds of .cattle,  which not ��������� only cropped the grassj  but browsed, on the shrubs, leaving  unhurt only * one great elm, which  still stands as the 'founder's tree,'  and a few old oaks and -butternut  trees, most of wh'ich have had to  give- place to our new buildings. The  only-access from the town was by  a circuitous and ungraded cart track,  almost impassable at night. The  buildings had been abandoned by the  new Board, and the classes of the  Faculty of Arts were held in tho  upper story of- a brick building in  the town, the lower part of which  was occupied by the High School."  A direct appeal for financial as-  sistancev was then made to the citizens of'Montreal. It met with an  encouraging response, which greatly  relieved the situation, and was what  Dr. Dawson, forty years later, called  "the beginning of a stream oi' liberality which has floated* our University barque up to the present  date."  - The more recent expansion of McGill to its present strong position is  well known. The appointment of  Sir Arthur Currie as Principal and  the still 'more recent election of Mr.  E. W. Beatty, President of the Canadian Pacific Railway, as Chancellor  have given it a practical administration which is calculated to ensure its continued progress as an  essentially National University. In  the Epilogue to his volume Professor  MacMillan writes: "There is a new  spirit in McGill. To-day its pulsing life, under the guidance of its  great Canadian leader, reaches  through all grades and faculties and  departments of its students as. it  has never done before. There is a  general forward movement unhampered and undivided by considerations  or competitions of sections or of  faculties. The University is closer,  roo, than it once was to the current  of national feeling. It is seeking to  Minister to Canada, the land which  gave it birth and from which'.its  greatness sprang. But while it will  serve Canada, it will continue to  draw its students, like the true  "Studium Generale," from every  country on the globe, and to send  them back to serve their individual  countries to advance the enlightenment of the world. McGill's first  century has been a century of trial,  but a century of,-great accomplishment of the world." The publishers  of "McGill and its Story" are S. B.  Gundy, of the Oxford University  Press, Toronto, in Canada, and John  Lane in London, England, and the  John Lane Company in New York.  demand  here in  soil just  (which  ts rower)  i hoy wil  therefor  arrange  harvest  consider  passed,  (which  keeping  duels J f  will clear the congestion  a .short time Onions will  , ns well at .V������-.00 per ton  would return a profit to the  F.

PROTECTION  FROM  OF FRUIT  MICE  AND  TKFIOS  RAIimTS  While the depredations from mice  and rabbits in winter vary from one-  year to another, depending on the  scarcity or abundance of food, the  number of mice which are in the vicinity and the character of the winter, "the, injury is always' greatest  when the orchard is in sod. and  when there is rubbish lying about:  hence the latter should be removed  before winter sets in*. In most  cases it is not necessary nor advisable  to have the orchard in sod, particularly when the trees are young, although it is highly important to have  a cover crop,    which also may sorac-  , times become a harbour for .mice. As  mice may be expected in greater or  less numbers' every winter, young  trees should be regularly protected  against their ravages. Mice usually  begin working on the ground under  the snow, and when they come to ;=,  tree they will begin to gnaw it if it  is not protected. A small mound of  soil from eight to twelve inches in  height raised about the base of the  tree will often prevent their injuring  the tree, and even snow tramped  about thevtree has been quite effective, but the cheapest and surest  practise is to wrap the tree with ordinary building paper, the price of  which is merely nominal. Tar paper  is also effectual, but trees have been  injured by using it, and it is well lo  guard against' this when building  paper will do as well. After the  paper is wrapped around the free and  tied, a little earth should be put  about the lower end' to prevent the  mice from beginning to work there.-  as if they get a start the paper will  not stand in I heir way. It may be  stated, however, that among several  thousand' young trees which have  been wrapped with building paper  for years at the Experimental Kami.  Ottawa.'there have, boon practically  no instances where the mice havs  gnaAved through the paper to got a I.  the tree. The use of a wire protector, or one made of tin or galvanized  iron is. economical in the end, as they  are durable. .      . ,  There are a number of washes  and poisons recommended for the  protection of fruit trees and the destruction of the mice and rabbits, but  none of these is very satisfactory, as  if the mice or rabbits are numerous  the poison has not    sufficient    effect  upon them to prevent    injury, alto-  Try it on your Victrola  We ain't no government's darlin'.
