"'���������''���������'-"  E.sewhere we give the provincial  government proposals 'for the establishment of a. demonstration  for the- lower mainland. The establishment of demonstration orchards means a good deal in the  development of the district in  fruit growing and the proposal  should receive the attention of  all fruit growers.  Fruit growing is just in its infancy and there are many things'  in relation to this line of work that  differ so much 'in different districts  that it is very  desirable to .   arrive at some  basis  of action applying to the.'Praser Valley.   There  is pruning, spraying,   -cultivation  of ground under the trees, remedies for insect pests, etc and a   variety of other subjects capable    of  demonstration, which is now  left  to individual 'opinion.'     ,T.he hew  comer who settles oh the land intending to grow fruit and seeking  certain  information  is  very  con-1  fused arid misled  by/the various  opinions of his advisers.   But with  the  results" of  a few 'seasons' 'of  experimental  work  in    a demori-  stration orchard and the published results for reference the present uncertainty as to the best, of  methods to' be adopted would' be  .removed.  The provincial government are  to be commended for the excellent  world th'ey are 'doing "for this infant industry and laying a foundation for' the  fruit  grower     to  I work  upon]   The   fact "'that'       a  demonstration orchard is to be established ori both sides of the Fra-  ser shows that, the     government  mean business.

BE WISE FARMERS  Bring your stock and chickens lo the market, tell the  man who visits your door that he can enter into  competition with others there. As you will sure obtain their market value, the dealers value is the most  he can make out of it for himself. You do the work  and he takes the profits.  I established your Abbotsford Market. I asked  you to bring stock, chickens, etc. I advertised for  you but my requests were always met with the reply  .
