As the  hall is used at 'present as a temporary school there will be no change of  location.' "  One of. the "trustees is anxious to  use the-opportunity to get the hall  ni'oved" to  the  extreme  edge  of   the  new addition on  the Whatcom road  frontage  putting   the  sheds  immediately behind the hall, then have the  new  school   building  on  the  corner  of Whatcom and  Vye roads.      The  board will take up the question with  the Municipal council next Saturday  Correspondence disclosed the Mr. J.  B. Jardine is ready to    assist    the  board in  obtaining title  to  the  old  site and the council will be asked on  Saturday next for the necessary security to the Jardines in conveying  deed.  The  appointment  of     Miss   lf.cn th  Sing, of Vancouver,    to Huntingdon  school, and'of Miss Ethel Gamble of  Vancouver  to   Kilgard  school,     was  confirmed by the board.  New supplies of books are already  on hand to meet the requirements  i'or the new term.   -  OVERNEHD  TO BELLINGHAM  ItEFTUGERATOR  CAR   SERVICE  We have called attention to the  need of improvement to the present  Canadian refrigerator service, especially in respect to having better ventilation supplied. The overloading  of cars that was recently found necessary resulted in considerable loss  of foodstuff's that in our opinion  could have been saved with an improvement in tlie ventilation. Splendid results are being obtainecLby ordinary stock cars in use as fruit cars  which proves the value of ventilation.  The carriers of perishable fruits  and vegetables cannot continue the  present faulty system without being  held responsible for the losses that  result. We intend to press for experiments with ventilated devices  now seeking a chance to demonstrate  their value. We want to secure Tor  B. 0. a chance to compete in Winnipeg and other distant markets on  equal or better footing than our well  equipped neighbors to the south.  Pre-cooling plants at shipping  point will help us to this end, but  the brine tank car as a fruit carrier  must have ventilation added before  it will prove satisfactory in this service, even if pre-cooling was practiced.���������'Market' Bulletin.  Many autoists dislike the present  condition .of .the State'.road from Sumas to' Bellingham owing to the loose  gravel and the bridges with the long  nails sticking up an inch or two and  make a trip,in another direction altogether. There is however another  way to get to the same point from  Mission City.  . Instead of turning south at Abbotsford go along the Yale road.to  wards Peardonville. To do this make  a turn to the left about two or three  miles from Abbotsford. Turn south  to where two roads lead from the  one road. Take the road to the Avost  and follow along past one sideroad,  making a..turn south again whore a  north and south road cross. This  leads to the Peardonville school. At  the school turn to the right going a-  bout a mile until the first road down  the hill to -the south, which takes  you to the boundary line. Go west  to the custom house, about two  miles. In front of the custom house  is a road going straight south. Take  that one down about three miles and  then turn to the right. Shortly afterwards turn to the left which leads  to Bellingham. landing you in the  centre of the town.  It is about ten miles from Abbotsford to Peardonville over a fair summer road and about four miles from  there to the customs office. The A-  merican roads are good, with only  one long bridge to cross but the nails  are driven down or were on Labor  Day. There are about ten miles of  fine pavement.  Lynden lies to the loft about three  miles from the Canadian customs office.  Miss Trene Cameron of Vancouver  visited Miss Evelyn McMenemy last  week.  Miss Young and a friend from Vancouver were the guests of Mrs. T. A.  iSwift last week end and Labor Day.  Mrs. Hannah Fraser accompanied  Miss lna Fearsr to Vancouver last  Monday where Miss lna will attend  the Normal School.  Mr. Victor Eby is going to Vancouver to take up his third year  high schol work; also Miss Christina  McPhee.  Mr.  Percy Peele is attend-  The oilier day as Ye Editor motored into Abbotsford,  having.travelled over a portion of the Yale Road, we w.ou-  dered if there was still enough of the spark of life left in  our Board of Trade to take up a matter that if carried out  in a thorough and systematic-manner would place the Au ���������  botsford Board of Trade at the top list of the present day  progressive organizations.  The present condition of the Yale Road is deplorable; it  is such that it is getting to be a serious matter to travel  over it. It is a veritable death trap for auto drivers and  their cars, and sometime an accident may probably liap-  ' pen in the loose gravel that will bring before tlie public in  a mournful way, the antiquated methods adopted in road  building on the Yale road���������the custom of throwing loose  rock, etc., on the middle of the road to such a depth that  only the heaviest cars are able to.plow through it, and thus  make a track right to the old road bed, rendering of no  permanent road value at one fell stroke what it cost good  public money to put on the road. After that light cars of  all kinds will probably have to go through on low gear,  and always with a certain amount of danger' too. Tlie  state of the road is almost, criminal. There are' many  tilings punished severely that are less dangerous than the  putting of a public road in such a condition.  Both this year and last year loose rocky gravel has been  piled on the Yale road here and there to such a depth that  the light cars have ;to go through on low gear, and should  another car be met in middle of one of these stretches of  roads there is danger lurking around to both cars, drivers  and occupants. Some drivers do not stop at the end of  .one of these; places or come fast which-makes it all the  worse. ,  The material used though is the best in the land if properly treated. It sheu'ld be screened and run through a rock  crusher before placing-it on the road.    But someone will  say, 'that costs money.'    Yes, it will cost money but the  public wi'll not eventually have to pay any more for it than  they do now,and there will be the added advantage of',  travelling with more safety and on a better road. A rock  crusher for about $400 and a tractor for about $1500 or  $1600 burning coal oil is all the equipment that is required.  The tractor will run the rock crusher and then haul tlie  crusher to a new place, or even the crushed rock to the  places on the road where required.    $2000 invested in this  manner would guarantee that the Yale road would benefit  by the amount of money expended on it each year���������and in  past twenty years enough money has been spent to have  the road from New Westminster to Abbotsford paved with  gold.    One instance comes to mind just previous to an election some $15,000 was spent on a part of the road hear  Murray's Corners���������about a mile.    It caught the votes   all  right but it would have been easier to have handed the  voters the cash, and it would have been no greater crime.  It is certain that if Premier Oliver's attention, through  the Minister of Public Works, were properly called to the  present state of affairs on the Yale road he would immediately investigate the matter, unless we are very much  mistaken. He surely does not know how the government  money is bemg wasted.  It just amounts to this that it robbing the people of the  province of their rights of a good road, and might be called  highway robbery. No road will ever be built in a thousand  years by the present methods. The work is not only disgraceful but costs every owner money to drive over the  road and with extreme danger to himself, everybody in the  car and any person else on the road-; Here is work for  our Board of Trade if it wants everlasting honour. .lust  write a good strong letter to the Premier and the Minister  of Public-Works.

It was quite noticeable during ihe recent land boom  when the land-seeker was out to settle in a new home in a climate that would be agreeable all the year round without the  extremes of heat and cold. .He, the prospective settler, came,  was. pleased with the situation, what he was told of the climate  in.  ���������e-jHirUjii dead  in   n-'rauce.  Conditions iti  tlio United ������������������jli'i;*  Nni\  in summer and in winter, but when told story after story of the  mosquito pest, invariably left for some oilier district seeking  hisicieal of a Garden or Eden. ��������� .Had if not been for the mosquito  pest, the Eraser valley wouid have had hundreds more settlers.  The question of cost of protecting the Nicomen lands and the  dyking of the Sumas prairie lands is quite a consideration, but  seeing that not only would it protect certain lands but would  go a long way towards eliminating the mosquito pest, thus making surrounding lands habitable, me matter should be taken up  with vigor by our governments. Cost should be nothing if the  welfare of the Fraser Valley is to be considered.  Big undertakings in the way of reclaimed lands have been  dealt with on the Pacific coast on the American side of the line.  Down on the Sacramento river a sea of wheat replaces what was  a sea of water, just 20,000 acres in one tract bringing forth the  the cereal which the Allies in the world war are in such great  ' need of now. The huge tract formerly covered with the flood  waters of the Sacramento and the American rivers lies in a fertile basin of 20,000 acres, most of which has been reclaimed and  turned to agriculture through the efforts of the federal and state  governments at the cost of millions of dollars.  The reclamation of this land-in permanent fashion was made  possible by the progress of the Sacramento river flood control  project, which, after indorsement by congress and the California  legislature, is being steadily rushed co completion by the federal  authorities, the California debris company, on one hand and the  state authorities, the reclamation board, on tiie other/ The  project eventually will cost about $42,ouo,000 and is designed co  take care of the floods of the Sacramento river, which amount  to five times as much as the river channel can carry. The interests of navigation, reclamation and flood control are so intermingled that it is necessary to adopt a plan which will provide  for all three.  The partial completion of the big project, with its accompanying putting to use of the reclaimed land, indicates in a measure  what,- is one of the largest, if not the greatest American fields  grown to this grain.  Yakima is forging ahead and is one of the great trade centres  just to the south of us. Important recamation schemes are  centred in the Yakima Valley. In the Sunnyside, Tieton and  Wpato units it is contemplated that there will be expended  $4,000,000 and that there will be reclaimed 84,000 acres of land.  The Sunnyside lands lie in the lower valley and the others in the  visinity of Yakima. When these schemes arc all completed the  valley will have no superior.  These two schemes outlined should show what is being done  and has been done to reclaim lands. What other governments  have done should stiffen the backbone of our governments to  such an extent that they will march up bravely with eyes to  the front, face tlie jobs and carry them. out. The whole province  will benefit. The growing cities at the coast need produce and  with the elimination of the .mosquito pest there would be but  very little need for the importation of millions of dollars of  produce each year. We-.wonId.all got the value of these millions that now never come back, and they would help to build  up B. C.

Why? The present demand is much greater than the supply. The manufacturers  are getting- behind in their output���������They  find labor so short they can't make paper  fast enough. '  This is a .serious matter for the newspaper men of Canada, whether the paper is  large or small,* as it means paper will cost  more.

Owing to the scarcity a higher price  will have to be paid.

Dr. C. Gordon Hewitt, Dominion Entomologist, is  to be present; and there will probably be representatives from  all parts of the mosquito belt present. It should be the beginning of great things for-this district; and will no doubt lead to  some method by which the mosquito pest will be eliminated from  this part of the Fraser Valley.  Tt is a big question and needs to be dealt with by men big enough to grasp the opportunities and the present situation���������it  means the protection of he lands of Nicomen Island and. the  reclamation of the Sumas prairie jllucI, together with some system oi* drainage for other lowlands.  Without the moquito post the Fraser Valley would be a Gar-  en of Eden pouring its rich treasures of produce into the coast  cities and over the prairie lands across the Rockies.  it is hoped that a very large number of the farmers and fruit  growers of the Vailey will be present to hear what Dr. Hewitt  has to say. The larger the au.'iioace the more readily will the  powers that be listen to any scheme we may ask them to carry  out later. It is the duiy ot everyone I o lay aside work on Tuesday  afternoon and come to Mission Ciiy.    Make it a full house.  The meeting is cailed'for 2 p.m.  round $2.50 to $2.75 per box. Tlie  buying prices In Britten Columbia is  $1.75. j  The demand for pears Is exceedingly good. Tlie Bartletts predominate  as fai as varieties are concerned. We  figure that Bartletts will bo over;  within the next two weeks. Bos-  socks, Flemish and Fall Butter are  now appearing and will sell at from  $2.75  to  $3.25  par box.  Receipts of melons have been e-  qual to the demand all week, most  of which have been coming from California and Washington. Flats are  selling at from $2.00 to $2.25 per  crate and Standards at $5.00 to $5.50  Casaba and Persian Melons are selling at G^ per lb. Both are meoting  with a good reception from the trade  the first receipts arrinving this week  and tho quality is exceedingly fine.  The vegetable market in Calgary  is somewhat sluggish owing to tlio  fact that there are heavy receipts  of local potatoes, cabbage, carrots,  turnips, beets and .cauliflower being  offered. The only commodity which  nan be imported from B. C. to advantage and will meet with a reception  from the trade is potatoes, and even  those are coming in in much smaller  uuantities from tho last three weeks.  Price on B. C. potataoes have been  $2.2 5 per 100 all week, the buying  price has been from $25.00 to $28  per ton. Onions are moving quite  freely at $3.00 per 100, the buying price has been from $30.00 to  $35.00 according'to quality.  Receipts of blackberries have been  light and demand is strong. Everything arriving in good condition  is selling at $4.00. We would urge  shippers to send forward as many  blackberries as possible to this market.  Crab apples are moving slowly the  price around $2.00 per box, the buying price $1.35 to $1.40 f.o.b. B. C  Receipts of corn have been quite  heavy the past week coming in from  several points in B. C. as well as  Ronalane in southern Alberta, from  which point heavy receipts have been  arriving. The corn from this point  is receiving preference over all other  shipments, as it arrives in better  condition and is .put up in first class  shape, containing exactly six dozen  to the case. The variety is Malakoff  and Golden Bantom.  fa f* B -'f������5 S ft U h t& ^"*  j   & ih o a n    it n  > ,i  Every housekeeper realizes that the  nice plate of war bread is one of the  important items of a well set table as  it is the finishing touch to a well prepared meal.

The Calgary market on a whole  has been in very fine shape all week  Nearly every commodity has been  short.

Edmonton has especially noted an improvement. The wholesale trade there  has conducted a campaign of educating the consumer as to the best time  to preserve certain fruits and vegetables, especially crabapples and tomatoes and the press of that city has  cheerfully given space to some of  our articles on this subject. B. C.  producers should co-operate in a  campaign to inform the prairie house  wives on the peak of the season of  each fruit, especially In a year like  this when we are offering our fruits  two weeks ahead of our usual season.  Saskatoon is brisk but would be  improved by taking a leaf out of  Edmonton's book re advertising.  Some very fine crabapples arrived  there from Okanagan Centre. There  were some very fine Duchess No. 1  and No. 2 in the car and the shipment was reported as the finest to  arrive in Saskatoon this year.  Calgary has had a better week than  usual.
