(From the Fraseir Valley Record)  The Mission City High school  is growing, having started the  term with 44 pupils on the roll  Eight years ago it was difficult  to keep a two roomed public  school going with that many  pupils, now there are five teachers in the public school and two  in the high school. The high  scho'bl was started four years a-  go with about twenty pupils  and since that date many of the  graduates have entered the teaching staff of the province and  out of the eleven public school  teachers of Mission school district seven are graduates of the  Mission City high school.

Published Every Friday by Tho Post Publishing Company  A weekly Journal devoted to the interests of Abbotsford and district  Advertising  rates  made  known  on  application  =������F  THE MARKET  Our   Shibboleth-  J. A. BATES,  -Neither   i'or   nor  agin'   the  Government  Editor and Proprietor  FRIDAY, SEPT. 3, 1915.  r  Much is said these days about the single man and the married man and their duties in regard to lighting for their country  and the concensus of opinion in many quarters is that the single  man should go and fight and let the married.man have the job  to work at home and support his family. Some even go so far  , as to call the unmarried man a "slacker" if he does not give up  his job and hike off and enlist! One exchange says that there  are altogether too many married men. enlisting for the front. But  not every young man who stays at home can be called a slacker  because many of them have offered themselves for service at the  front in the lighting line and have been refused. These should  in all cases be given a badge to indicate the. fact that they have  already offered their services to their country, and it would show  that their heart was in the right place even if not in the lighting  line.  There are reasons why there are a larger percentage of married men than single men offering themselves for service and  possibly one of these is economic pressure and the prospect of  , a secured income for wife and children has been the deciding  factor in at least say forty per cent, of the enlistments which  have taken place in Canada. The young man does not feel the'  necessity on account of the economic pressure for he can live  on less.  In the matter of enlistment we believe we are safe in saying  that all citizens of Canada have at one time or another in the  past year considered' the matter of enlistment, and for reasons  known probably only to themselves have decisions been, made  in. favor of remaining at home, until the fact becomes more apparent that their services are absolutely required.    Not .every  man, either single or married, can just pick up and go away to  war, no matter how much he would like it.    Although all men  throughout the British Empire should hold themselves in-readiness for service, yet in many cases it would be questionable if  at present it is up to any man to sacrifice too much to go and  fight.    There are many other ways of helping and Canadians  have been very generous in helping with money and that which  money can buy.  Many important employers throughout Canada are seemingly  determined that the single man should go and are leaving the  way open for that single young man to take leave of his job,  That job is not always given to a married man who needs it. Is  it? Is it a fact that young men have been told by any employers of labor that the company could do without his services and  after the young man had left, a cheaper class of labor has been  substituted? We have been told that this is a fact. Somebody is  responsible for this state of affairs; and could you blame the  single man for not wanting to go to the front���������he wants to stay  at home and save his job for a white man.

FORT GEORGE QUIET  The lumber industry in the Fort  George District is quiet according to  advices 'received by the Minister of  Lands owing to local conditions; the  amount of.-building now taking place  being small Hopes are expressed  that conditions will improve as a result of the market extension move~  ment now on foot.  Railway construction -having fallen'  off, there has been a marked'reduction in the fire hazard. Under existing conditions the vegetation is dry  ing up rapidly, and is likely to facilitate the spreading of fires. It is  estimated that an exceptional amount  of land clearing will have been carried out this year, as a result of activity on the part of the settlers, and  this will have the effect of eliminating many areas which in he past  have constituted a grave fire hazard.

The Red Cross Executive  through the chairman Mr. Noel Marshall express great satisfaction with  this result This  Red  Cross ac  tivity is not confined to any section  but is general, being as noticeable  in Saskatchewan and B C. as in the  Maratime provinces  American Fish and Game Clubs  Give to Quebec Red Gi'osfl  The various American Clubs which  have leases of sporting preserves in  the province of Quebec are organizing a general contribution to the  funds of the Canadian Red Cross.  The Montagnais Fish and Game Club  the Secretary of which is Mr. William B. Miles of New York, Is taking the lead in this matter. A letter has been sent to all the American  Game Clubs expressing the strongest  sympathy with Canada and the Empire in the present and urging a  generous contribution to the Canadian Red Cross as a mark of American  appreciation. .

C.  z&t-  g������W  3=  HE  OPINION-AS TO HOW THE Wilt WILL END  \\-  The following taken from a private letter received in Mission  City will be interesting:  "Your letter of July 19th just handed to me.  Don't fancy that our tactics will allow Germany to "beat  Russia to a finish"���������The thing is absurd. We couldn't do it if  we wanted to.    Russia is today alive, as she never was alive'before.    Her teeming millions are banding themselves together to  manufacture the needed weapons of offence, and woe to Germany  when Russia strikes back.    Germany has no more chance of  ...beating-Russia to a finish than she has of beating the Martians.  I quite agree with your quotes re the "dinner hour"���������but only  as referring to the past.    We certainly, take things somewhat  coolly.    What is the use of doing otherwise?   Possibly before  this reaches you a move will have set in' on this side���������a move  of more importance, even than Warsaw.    But do not think, because we maintain a calm and easy-going exterior, that we are  asleep.:   We have, got to realize facts.    We have literally mil-:  lions of men moving about.here from camp to camp, in training  and waiting, waiting���������impatiently ,it may be, sometimesTT-for  what? For weapons, for munitions.    They take time to make,  and all the stamping and ramping in the world   won't   hasten  them.-   Here and there a waster; but the majority of the people  are in earnest, and working, not at their ordinary trades only,  but in connection with requirements to bring the war to a success  ful issue.    Fighting has been going on incessantly in the west,  but no great operations have been undertaken.   All attacks have  been dealt with, and the wastage of the enemy has been very  great���������much greater than our own; before we advance, we are  going to be ready.    Meanwhile, we hope they will keep on attacking;  it's a very expensive game.    If we were    sure   they  would keep on attacking, we might even sit tight and let them  do it, for that play would suit us well indeed; but they are not  so foolish as that.    We shall move forward, when it suits the  plan of campaign that has been agreed upon between the Aliles.  We are all getting somewhat impatient, but even delay is helping  ; us, for Germany is being gradually throttled and weakened, while,  every month makes us stronger, and sees,us in a better position  for fighting.    The arm which is the most silent is doing by far  the most work/  The Navy has cost us a lot of money, and is  worth all it cost.    It willbe found at the end to have done more  than anything else to save the world from Prussianism.    ���������  "On the,whole, I take an optimistic view of things.    Surprises  , have.still to come;' two or three other nationalities will probably  be in the race shortly, and the pace will be very hot; but England  has got her second wind, she feels neither puffed nor blown;  .France runs easily, and is still to be reckoned with; Italy seems  .to be justifying her choice in the team; Russia, who has been  taking a gruelling with a good heart, hangs grimly on, and may  'see 'em all out yet'; Austria is practically tailed off, 'whipped  - to a frazzle-, and whoever wins, she'll be out of it; Germany has  made practically all the running, and still leads, but make no mistake���������the man who makes the pace is usually passed in the  sprint.    He may come in a bad third, but he rarely or never wins.  If you are having a 'flutter' in the betting ring, and you have  no particular fancy, I will act'as tipster. Put your little bit on'  the same old horse--the same effete, doddering old country. She  saved the world.from a military, domination a hundred years ago  ���������and she can save it, again.  - "Maybe the U.S. will,one day think the part they have played  in the game is. not of the heroic order���������who shall say?    Personally, I hope to see the ^righteous end gained without them.  And I think that if they .expect their opinions to gain much  respect at the,final board meeting, they will be distinctly 'sucked in.'" ��������� .  GERMANY AND THE ANGLOSAXON  (Madaeline'G.   Doty in  the  London  'Nation)  "Don't go," said the American embassy at The'Haguer "Americans are  not wanted. You may get into trouT  ble." I packed my bag with beating  heart. Go I would, for why live unless adventure? But I spoke no German.. How could it be managed. My  head was, full of tales of hardship  and imprisonment. The Lusitania  had just been sunk. I had never been  to Germany." Berlin was a strange  city. I pinned my American flag and  my Hague .Congress Peace Badge on  the lapel of my coat. ' My passport I  tucked in my pocket. With a small  handbag and no printed or written  word I started forth. Fortunately a  Hungarian newspaper woman whom I  had met travelled by the same train,  were an ill assorted pair. She petite, feminine and full of gay, light  humor; I serious, clad in business  clDthes with many capacious pockets  "Mon mari," she called me. "Me  femme" proved a very useful person  She spoke five languages. Born in  Russia and French ancestors, living  in Paris, and married to a Hungarian  her heart was with the Allies. Life  in Buda Pest was different. She dreaded return. But her glib German  tongue and Hungarian marriage  made her persona grata in Germany.  Her flirtation with the passportofficers at the frontier let us through  with smiles and an invitation to wait  over a train. Before the borde was  reached I had hidden my American  flag. It was not wise to speak English.' This made me very helpless, I  persuaded my companion tp step off  with me in Berlin. It was a long,  tedious day's journey.    The German  pasture kinds were empty, no people  men or children anywhere, and - no  cattle. But it was Sunday. Perhaps  that was the reason. When we had  secured roms at a hotel, we started  forth to see the city. A passing  throng filled the Friedrichstrasse, hut  half were soldiers. Every fifth person was in mourning, and wore a  black band upon the sleeve. The faces in the electric light looked pale  and tense. There was much talk, but  no- laughter. Every now and then  one caught the word "Lusitania." Only the day before that steamer had  been sunk. I clung to my companion  We talked in whispers. Once "or  twice an English word caught the'ear  of the-passer-by, who turned, flushed  and angry, to glare upon me,, I soon  ceased speaking. In the restaurant  I made wild guesses, and pointed at  dishes on the menu, and uttered no  sound. ' I felt as I had during my  voluntary week in prison, when under  the hostile and unfriendly eyes of  the matrons. The hotel had given  us bread cards. With these we secured some black and sour-tasting  bread, done up in sealed paper packages. Under her breath my companion confided that Hungary was worse  off than Germany. Hungary 0was  nearly breadless, Germany had  bought ���������Hungary's'flour supply. "A  fflne ally,, Germany," continued my  companion, >!'little she'cares for- us,  She doesn'.t even .trust us. Every letter mailed .in Berlin to Budapest Is  opened and read. Germany is wonderful; but I hate the people." Next  morning we started out to find a  place where English was tolerated,  for my companion could not stay on.  We hunted up some German-Ameri-  dans who had invited women  peace  delegates to come ,to  Berlin.  Their hospitality was boundless. 1  wad to be a great guest and passed  from hand to ban.I.    '  I saw my freedom vanishing, but  was powerless The German-American-had planned the conversion of  every American. I was seized upun  as the missionary'seizes the cannibal.  I tried to ��������� extricate mysel1.'. Bitler  little taunts were thrust at me. bid  I fear starvation, or the barbarians?  Eventually I capitulated. 1 was to  have one more'nigh; al. the hotel  with, my gay-frierr.l before her departure.  ��������� That night we went to the Winter  Garden. The place was filled with  soldiers. One act was a series of living tableaux, depicting war. They  were, intended to inspire ih patriot-  i ism. ' But the soldiers w^re silent,  only a mild applause greeted tne effort. One scene sybolic of stupendous neroism,' the last soldier firing  the last "shot, was reeo'aod in grim  silence. All Berlin is grim and tense  People pass and repass on the'street.  The eheps are ooon, life goes on. But  there is ho genial friendliness,nocling  i'.ring over a glass of beer, no bit of  gay^song. Evorywhore there are  gray," dusty and ' worn' uniforms.  When a troop of> soldiers pass  their' faces are 'pale, their feet drag.  The goose step has vanished.  With the departure of my compan-'  ion I ' settled down in< a Geirman  house. A modest menage, but every  dotail perfect. All Germany runs with  out.friction. My host is a university  professor, his wife an American. They  are all hospitality, but their zealous-  ness torments me. I am the heathen  whose soul must be saved. From the  day of my arrival to the moment of  my departure, .we have but one topic  of conversation���������Germany's virtues  and America's' sins. A great pity  seizes me for this tragic couple.  Their thin palid faces bespeak of  wrecked nerves and tortured souls.  Under the. domination of a Government they adore, they do not criticise  To question wbuld be to shatter their  world. German culture, German art  the Government. Bismark, the Kaiser  the invasion of Belgium., the sinking  of the Lusitania���������in all things Germany is wisdom and righteousness.  Surrounded by enemies, wicked monsters, Germany the perfect, is fighting  for her life.' Better ' a thousand  times that the Lusitania be sunk and  Americans killed than let American  bullets reach the Allies to. inflict,  death, on German soldiers. "American bullets,"-.hourly the phrase is  flung in my face. My protest as a  peace "delegate, I am fighting for the  prohibition of their manufacture to  the Government, brings no relief. Upon someone-must the pent up fury  and hate for despicable.America be  poured. . I feel like a' drowning man  being slowly pressed down under the  waves:'' But pity for' this tragic couple gives me,.patience. Behind the  ostentatious display of bread and the  sneering allusions to starvation and  barabrity, ��������� I ��������� see fear and bitterness  bred by,fear. '* -. "  In "such an-atmosphere'of depression and suppression my free American spirit suffocates. I plan an escape. Somewhere in Berlin are free,  fearless souls. These I- must find. My  hosts fear ter venture out alone. An  American woman was driven from a  tram car by an angry mob for speaking English. - I take my map and  study it. I have .the addresses of  some Social Democrats. How to get  them.My hosts do not tolerate them  Then I remember the American embassy and' a young man firiend. I  plead a luncheon engagement. This  seems safe, and in a cab, unaccompanied I escape. To my countryman  I explain my predicament. All absences are to be accounted for by him  Then alone map in hand, I start out  I walk many"weary blocks, slinking  along side streets to avoid the complication of tramcar conversation. I  seem to^be living.in the days of conspiracies and/dime novels. And truly I am; for dayby day the plot thickens, I am received with open arms by  the rebel women and at once nicknamed the "criminal',' At, last I  have'found "the' Germans I sought.  Free, fearless people, whose love for  the Fatherland is so great, they dare  protest. But these people are momentarily in langer. Their meetings  are secret. We meet in out-of-the  way places. I find that my telephone  messages are'intercepted. That a  perfectly harmless letter is never delivered. I am watched It is hard.to.  believe. Sure ly I have dropped back  to the Middle Ages. I have to pinch  myself to realize I am an American  living in the twentieth century.  Such innocent affairs, these clandestine meetings! Merely discussion  of a way to protest against car, anl  work for peace.1- True, we denounce  the invasion of Belgium, declare Germany began thewatr,, and speak with  loathing of the-militarist spirit.- But  what American .doesn't? My most revolutionary talki was with a gray-hair  ed mother of grown children, in a  secluded corner .of a quiet restaurant  A burnning flame this woman. JIer>  face stamped with world suffering,  her ''yes the tragic eyes of a. Jane  Adanis. In a* whisper she' uttered  the great tiesesy: Germany's, salvation  lies in Germany's defeat. If Germany  wins when so many of her proaresivo   Ino, -which will go over on as long as  young men have been slain,lhe people .will be litterally crushed in the  grip of the mailed fist."  Willi the'companion 1 discussed  the collapse of the Social Democrats  in the hour of crisis, the triumph of  natonalism over internationalism.  She attributes it to military trailing  Durng the peroid of sevioe a man becomes a thing. Automatically lie acquires habits of    obedience,     is  re-  tlie ruling power turns the crank.  It wan with infinite relief that 1  took my departure one morning. The  tragedy of Germany had eaten into  my soul. As I waited on the pla'.-'  form for my train, carloads of soldiers ea:ne aud went. One great train  ful paused for some moments while  the ift'en drank coffee. A great desire -seized me 'td call' up to these  men, to .bog them notsVto go. Then  I remembered Rosa Luzemberg, realized my iniiTHence,,knew I would ac-  duced to an unquesticnacle machine  complish nothing, and resolutely turn  Mechanically, when the call came, the  Social   Dsmocrats,   with   the- others,  fell into line. But with time has come  thought.  ,   Also  knowledge���������knowe-  ledge that, in the first Instance. Germany's war was not one of. self-defence. ,  But it  is too  late to  rebel.  Most of the Social Democrats are at  the   front.    From   month   to   month  they  have  put  a  protest as   unwise  Only  Llebknecht   has   made   himself  heard!    Now he has been caught up  in the Iron hand, and sent to battle.  ���������But "women   are( not  bound   by  the  spell of militarism.    While the Government rejoinced at the submission  of its Socialist men, the women grew  active.  Organizing  a  party  of  their  own, thoy, fight bravely.      Last fall  Rosa Luxemburg    rushed    into  the  NM'eet and adresed a regiment of sol-  diYs.    "Don't go to war, don't shoot  brothers" she said.      For this offence  she was sent to prison for a year. Today she lies in solitary confinement  But heir  suffering only inspires the  others.  In Mairch,  750 women walk-,  to  the  Reichstag.    At  the  entrance  they halted.    As the members entered they shouted,  "We1 will have no  more war.    AVe will    have    peace."  Quickly the police    dispersed    them  and  the   order   went .forth   that  no  newspaper should print one word of  the protest.      Still the women work  on:    On April 8 an international Socialist Woman's Congress.was held at  Berne,     Switzerland.   '   Ten   nations  were represented including all    the  belligerents.  The task of peace propaganda in  Germany is gigantic. Neither by letter nor by press can news be spread'  Both are censored. The work must  be carried on by spoken word passed  from mouth to mouth. The courage  of the little band of women I had  met was stupendous. Through them  I learned to love Germany. So my  life in Belrlin became a double one. 1  ate and''slept, and was unregenerate  in one part -of the town, and only  really lived when I escaped from respectability and, strange contradiction of terms, became a criminal lighting for peace.  But wherever I was on>3 fact grew  omnipresent. Germany was magnificently organized. Here lay the country's power and her weakness. Tier  power because it made Germany a  unit. There was no weak links in  the chain. Her weakness, because it  robbed her people of individuality,  made them cogs in a .machine.  Even in the midst of war, Germany  is superbly run. The lawns are weed-  less, the flower beds wonderful The  streets are clean. The tasks the men  left have been performed by women,  children aJnd old men. Njthicg is  neglected.- 1 w������*nt throvgh Berlin-'s  biggest hospital. It was marvellous  There was every apparatus that mind  can conceive or science invent. The  building was beautiful,the lawns gay  with jonquils and tulips. Little portable houses had been erected to cars  for the wounded. Seventeen of the  staff doctors have gone to the front,'  but seventeen women physicians'have  taken their places. Everything is as  before. Germany's discipline is perfect. It is not for the German people to reason and wonder why, but  only to 'do���������and die. Everywhere  you feel the relentlessness of force,  the power of organization.  As I walked through the Tliiergar-  ten one afternoon, there arose a great  crushing, buzzing noise. Directly over my head and quite low was a  great Zeppelin. I thanked heaven I  was in Berlin, not in Paris. The Germans are very busy with their Zeppelins. Just outside Berlin is a little wooden city, erected to give airships practice in hurling bombs.  While men with.labor of years are  erecting wonder cities like Berlin,  other men are practising clay and  night how to destroy such a city in a  day.   ���������.:.������������������ '���������.'-'  It is common talk in Germany that  they have at last discovered a bomb  that cannot be put out by water, if  so, heaven help us! For Germany  will never give in. She will fight to  her last man. All the bitterness and  fear that has crept into .the nation  will be directed toward a gigantic ef-  JCort'to blow up the world. Germany  ho longer cares whom she hurts; like  an unloved child at bay, she means  to smash and kill. The pity of it.  Never was there a more, generous,  soft-hearted people.' Germany, the  land of the Christmas tree and folk  songs and hearthstones and gay child  ish laughter, turned into a relentless  fighting machine- But each individual is a cog firmly fixed in the mach-  ed my back. ,As my train sped into  'Holland life changed. I could speak  and smile again. Friendly eyes greet  ed me. I was no longer an outcast  From the car window I saw a subtle  change had come over the landscape  Ih Germany only a few women are to  be seen in the pastures. But now the  meadows were full of sleek, fat cows.  The pneasants in the field were singing. As we streamed through little  cities all, was bustle and activity.

C  *K:.  k  Next Monday is Labor Day throughout the Province of British  Columbia; and among the many places that will celebrate that  day as a holiday, is Mission City, the l-iome of the Big Red Strawberry, the Mammouth Rhubarb, the Red R.ed Raspberry and-delicious small fruits of all kinds.,  The committees have been busy for the last few weeks perfecting arrangements i'or the successful carrying off of the big day  of sports, and the final meeting of the committee will be held on  Friday evening, when it is expected that the various committees  will be present with the report that everything has been arranged  i'or Monday morning at 10:30 a. in., when the day's sports will  start up with the Grand Patriotic Parade, those marching in the  parade carrying Union Jacks, and the rigs being decorated with  Union Jacks.  According to the Programmes published elsewhere the parade  .will start on Washington Street near Grand Avenue and.march  along Grand Avenue to Home Avenue and back to Grand and  down Washington Street, halting in front of the Bank of Commerce, where the large flag which the committee are giving will  be presented to the room or school winning same. The judges  of the Parade, Rev. W. J. Weatherdon, Rev. J. Thorburn Conn,  and Rev. D. W. Scott will do the judging and the presentation of  -the flag, while Rev. Father Rqhr, of the O. M. I. will make a short  neat and appropriate patriotic speech. Mr. W. N. Mathewson,  the manager of the Bank of Commerce, has signified his intention of having the front of the Bank most appropriately decorated for the occasion. .The parade and the presentation, and the  speech accompanying will be well worth witnessing and hearing.  It is expected that there will be a big turn .out to the parade of  the citizens of the town; and the many visitors will then have  arrived for the day's sports.  It is not definitely known how many children will be in the  parade, besides the various rigs,; and others, but there will be  over two hundred from the local public and high school; over  sixty from the 0. M. 1,;: Ferndale will be there with its small  contingent; and Steelhead pupils will come under the leadership  of Mr. T. J. Thibault the popular teacher, of that district; Silver-  dale contingent will also be present; and it is expected that a  large number will be present from Hatzic, Matsqui, Ridgedale,  Clayburn and Abbotsford. If present plans mature there may  be near 500 pupils in the parade, each of which will carry a small  Union Jack, provided by the committee. ���������___,  The'Boy Scouts will.form a part of the parade, turning oui xii  ���������full force.  The committee is arranging with the C. P. R. to run a special  train from Huntingdon and Sumas to arrive about 10 a. m. and  return about 6 p. m. Arrangements are not yet complete but it is  altogether likely that a train will be-run, as the committee sent  a delegation south on Monday to advertise the sports, and their  return announced that a large number of people would visit th<  celebration on Labor Day provided there were a means of transportation from the south. All trains east and west stop at Mission City. _ ���������       .  The procession will be headed by the Band of the Duke of Con-  naught's Own Rifles, 6th Regiment of Vancouver. The band will  consist of fourteen pieces "and the bandmaster. This is considered the best band in Vancouver and, the committee are fortunate  in being able to get the services of such good music for tthe day  but knowing the advantages of good music for a holiday sucli as  our Labor Day the committee have made-if a point, to get the  very best in the province, and fortunately have been successful.  The afternoon.will start off with a baseball match between  a team of first-class men from Stave Falls and a cracker-jack  team from Deroche, for the Haddad Cup, which.has been placed  as a prize for the winning team, who will hold it for one year  and defend it, at Mission City again next year or forfeit the, cup  to the committee. As both teams have' never been, beaten during the summer games the match should be a good one and well  worth seeing. '  The children's sports will start about 2:30 p. m. and promise  to be just as enticing and attractive as they have been in former  years;, .and the boys and girls have looked upon Labor Day as  .the day of the year when they could earn most money for racing  It is decidedly' a" children's day, and this year the prize money  will be just as big as any year yet.  Among the-other sports of the afternoon will be two tugs-of-  war, one between Matsqui and Mission and,the other between  two teams of Chinamen: a football match between the Boy  Scouts and the School boys.  . The day's sport will wind up with a dance in the Skating Rink  when dancing will be kept up from 9 p. m. until 4 p. m.f and all  who wish to trip the light fantastic will surely enjoy themselves  toV'the music of Mr. Forbes Stuart's --"orchestra;  MISSION   FttlUtV   SERVICE  Pork, Mutton, Keef, Veal, Pork Sausages,   Wieners  and Balogna always on hand.
