The prize list which is a good one  is now in the hands of the printer  and will be issued next week and  distributed among the members' of  the Association: "-later it will appear  in. the Fraser. Valley Record. All  are invited to exhibit. . ���������   .  _ The Matsqui fair has always been,  a good one and the prospects are  that it wll be bigger and better than  ever. Many of the most prominent  farmers have signified their intent-  ioji._of swelling the exhibits so' as to  overflow the present large building.  There will no doubt be many from  Mission with exhibits, and of course  a  lot  of visitors.  It is probable that the Hon. E. D.  Barrow, Minister of Agriculture will  be present to open the fair.  ��������� Don't forget the date and the fact  that the exhibits must be bigger and  better than ever in order to keep up  the good name of Matsqui.  Start now to conider what you are  going to send to Matsqui's big fair.  13. C. GAMS REGULATIONS'  Mission City Fall Fair  The Mission City and District  Fair promises to be a record breaker  and a few closing hints- to exhibitors  are now in order..  Enter everything you have that is  fit for show and enter it early.  Bring your exhibits to the Fair  grounds as soon as possible and assist the officers and directors in  .every way you can.  It is very important that entries  be made early as far as exhibits to  be placed in the building are cone-mod and that they bo on hand  promptly so that the directors in  charg-j of the hall may arrange the  space Lo show the exhibits to the  best advantage. Try,and help in this  v. ay.  Good judges have been secured  jn every department and everything possible will be done to salify  (���������..liibiiors.

I A. boy named .Far, aged 13, was  'playing on the pump house at Oif-  | ford on Sunday and fell on a heavily  .volted wire and burned badly, his  ! left hand, being burned off and his  ; lung exposed. Me was brought, to  ! Abbotsford hospital and a special  j nurse brought from Vancouver for  i him'as ihe nurse here was too busily  ! engaged to give such a serious case  'proper attention.    It is expected that  his arm will have to be amputated.  The boy had been forbidden from  time to time to stay away from there.  "To further dchv' action looking  towards the eradication of the mosquito post in the Fraser Valley, is  nothing short of criminal neglect,"  said lion. F. D. Barrow,- minister of  agriculture in the Oliver Government  during a brief address.a I. the banquet  on Tuesday evening last.'  Mr. Barrow, who was unable to attend tho meeting in the afternoon,  was the. chief' speaker at the banquet,  tendered /.he visiting -delegates from  the-Vancouver Board, of. Trade and  outside points following the convention, the first in the history of-' the  Valley which had been called primarily to deal with the'best method of  eliminating the ubiquitous insect  ifrom the agricultural areas of the  lower Fraser Valley.  The minister was quite at home on  the subject after a-more or less intimate acquaintance .with the mosquito  extending over a period of some  twenty years in the Chilliwack district. He had visited Halzic during  the berry season when the pest was  the worst and he knew full well, he  said, how difficult" the' farmer and  fruit grower found it to operate.  "I am satisfied," he said, "that the  government will lake proper steps to  assist you at the next session. I may  say, I think, that Premier Oliver' is  prepared to -co-operate and lo urge  financial' assistance." -  Mr. Barrow paid a tribute to the  city girls who stuck to their fruit-  picking despite'.'Vue fierce -offensive,  of the mosquito: Their work was on.  a par with that of the women of  Great Britain, who had carried on so  courageously since the ' fateful days  of August, 1914, helping to Increase  the production for home consumption from two weeks out of the year  to 24 weeks.  The afternoon session, over which  Mr. C. E. Tisdale presided ably, and  Mr. W. E. Payne acted efficiently as  secretary,   was  an   enthusiastic   one.  The attendance almost filled the Imperial    hall,    representatives    being  t present from all parts of the district.  Among the    representatives   present  were noticed:   Councillor Ewing representing the Maple Ridge Council;  Mr.  Harris of Deroche;   ex-Reeve J.  B. Cade, W. J. Manson, ex-M. P. P.;  ex-Councillor T. Catherwood of Hat-  zic; ex-Councillor   Wm.    Elliott . of  Matsqui;   Mr.   Fraser Yorke,  one- of  the old-timers of the Fraser Valley;  Couns. Clark    and    Wren    of    Mission; 'Coun. McLean and Coun. Phin-  ney of Matsqui; Sam Smith, the veteran dairyman of Dewdney; Councillor Thopmson of Mission; J. W. Win-  son of Huntingdon;  ex-Councillor M.  Wilson, C. Stuart-Wade of New Westminster; Reeve   Fooks    of    Sumas;  Reeve McCallum of Matsqui; Reeve J  A. Catherwood of Mission; Mi*. Goo. j  G-ibbard, one of the pioneer farmers I  of Cedar Valley; and dozens of other '  men who have a stake in the valley i  and all anxious to see the mosquito  migrate to the wilds of Potsdam.  On the platform were: Reeves A.  McCallum, Reeve fooks, Reeve Catherwood; A. A. Lane, president of the  Mission City   Board of    Trade;     Dr.  a  Hon. E. D. J3arroAV, Minister of Agriculture, who has promised his support for logistlation to help eliminate tho Mosquito Pest. He says   it would be "criminal neglect'' not  not to v.-o so.

Oil, "he said, 'was not a cure-  all." Reclamation and drainage were  the only true remedies for the mosquito.  Three years ago Mr. Treherne had  been sent west, with headquarters ac  Agassiz. Chairman Tislade was a  little too sanguine, as he understood  his rmarks, when he expressed the  belief that the scientists could, or  would remedy their trouble, and  clean up the pest. Control rests with  the people of the districts alone. Our  part is to investigate and advise, said  the speaker.  "It is our official duty. Unfortunately our staff is so depleted by the  war, that we cannot spare men to  meet the needs of all Canada, even  though we realize the troubles. I  admit that with the very excellent  conditions' you have here, and the  close proximity of markets, something must be done as early as possible; and more especially, as the  needs of men returning from' the  great war will need considering before very long, we hope.  The question Is not an insuperable  one. continued Dr. Hewitt", but it is  one dependent on many conditions.  Similar ones existed in western Ontario; they were formerly very bad.  but. lotfjy are n;;ly troublesome.

He knows a  good thing when he sees it.  for discussion ami  finally passed.'  "Whereas . the ' Kraser Valley is a  district of enormous' productive possibilities; .and whereas I ho. said district .is severely haudicappe'd owing  to the mosquito pest;  "Be it resolved:'.That the provincial government be requested by this  meeting as'enibled to privide legislation and financial assistance at the  next session of the legislature, that  will mitigate pr destroy the.mosquito  nuisance, so that the valley may eventually assume its place in the production of milk, grains, small fruits,  cattle, and the usual natural products of the country."

KeclamaMon,  and drainage is tho principal factor:  (.ho problem iu British Columbia, is  generally 'speaking, either to get water, on the land, as in the Okruiagan,  or, as iu this district, to get the greater part of the water off the laud. Tho  Chilliwack Valley' is an example of  the effects of land settlement and the  resulting reduction of mosquito pests  after clearing the-land. They cannot  breed without water. Some doubting Thomas Will probably instance  the Prairie pest, but it must be remembered that some mosquitoes lay  their eggs  that mature early In  the  spring and others later;  some He in  the snow and hatch in the small pools  of snow water as it becomes warm.  Entomologists show you where    the  breeding spots-arc; then comes    the  engineering problems.      In the large  and terrible mosquito districts of New  Jersey, Dr. Campbell had no satisfactory "results until drainage showed Its  influence and gave the remedy.      Removal of stagnant water on the low  lying lands of the Fraser river, clearing of brush and cultivation are the  chief  necessaries.  I gather that the oil you have beeii'  using in the past is not the best  kind for that purpose. Crude and  thick oil needs mixing with lighter  oils. An engineer wrote the department" on behalf of the Abbotsford  Board of Trade and I forwarded full  details. I do not know what action'  was taken by that Board.  Here the necessity of co-operation  was pointed out, and the speaker  stated that i nless the people are willing to co-operate they might as well  keep their money in their pockets.  Contiguous districts must organize.  The proposed legislation would  enable the people to raise the money  necessary for active work. The best  policy would be to obtain a small  commission, covering the whole mosquito area, but lifted out of local Interests and party politics. An independent body should be responsible  for this worlc getting thoir advice  from an expert. This would give unify of adieu.  R. C. Treherne. Dr. Hewitt's chief'  '���������.ssisinnt for British Columbia, also  urged co-operation as the secret r-f  iltiinate f.'ic^ss. The cities were an  vitally .Interested in the .problem as  "he valley "cynfres and he voiced  .strong approval of the steps taken by  th'e convention.  The motion was put to the meeting  after several had spoken, opening up  new channels of thought. Among  Miese were Mr. Plommer of the Clay-  burn Works, M. McLean. Sam Smith  whose cows eat tho grass even if the  oil was. on it, and he thought it did  ,'hem good, G. IT. Moody, F. A. E.  Verchere. and others.  The following committee was suggested and carried: Reeve McCallum,  A.A.Lane. Pres. of the Mission City  Board of Trade, Reeve Fooks, Reeve  McCallum, a member of the New  Wsetminster Board of. Trade and a  member of the Vancouver Board of  Trade, and Mr. Plommer. Mr. McCallum to be convener.  'v^  ffiSTS-  ^���������^^smM^i^m^^^m^^^^^^^^^m^im^^mm ABBOTSFORD POST  Published Every Friday  j.

If you COULD (although, OF COURSE, you  can't) stop every man you meet on the streets  asd ask: "Do you want to buy a pair of shoes?"  (.Or any other kind of goods) You might find  ' half a dozen who .would say "Yes." Perhaps not  one of these, however, would want to buy the  article you want to sell.  If your advertisement, however, were to be  printed-in these columns this week, it would  "stop" EVERY MAN IN TOWN WHO WANTS  .TO. BUY SHOES, OR CLOTHES, OR ANY  OTHER ARTICLE���������and it wouldn't "stop" .anyone who didn't want to buy- That's the beauty  of the advertising way of findiag a buyer. The  ad. finds the buyer through the simple process of  being easily and readily found BY the buyer-  And if, among the prospective buyers of goods,  there is one to whom your goods would be a bargain, and your ad. is a convincing one, you'll soil  what you want to sell.

We hope it will be a success, as dur  ing tho last two-months we have not  done as well as usual.  Any ladies or children willing to  help with the tagging kindly send in  tht-ir names at the libary before next  week.  The motto now on the tags that will  surely appeal, to everybody is "They  have fought for us, can we let them  su'.rvu?  K.  A.. APPLEBY,  Sea.-trcas. P. of W. Fund, Mission  Vancouver, Aug 13th, 19IS:  Doar   Friend:  . The Tag Day for  the Prioners of  Wm;, which  has now hcome an  annual event, will, by permission of the  j Mayor take place in Vancouver    on  Saturday, September 2ist.  I hope that many other places in  British Columbia may again co-oper-  ato to make the Tag Day the success  that it has been in former years.  The Women's Canadian Club has  promised to take charge in "Vancouver, but the Prisoners of War Committee will make arrangements for  all other places and has a large supply of tags on hand.  So many places are already giving  liberally to the Prisoners that it  would seem greedy almost on our  part to suggest anything further,and  this letter is really an annuncement  that the Tag Day is to take place and  not an appeal.  On behalf of the committee,  Sincerely yours,  VIOLET  E.   SILL1TOE.  MISSIOX SCHOOL OVEKCKOWUUI)  (From the Fraser Valley Record)  The Mission City public school is  overcrowded and the teachers are  hoping that the school hoard will  come to their relief and appoint another teacher.  Tn last week's report an error  crept in, which we have been asked  to correct.  The number of pupils in the IV.  Division was 32 instead of 22 and  in Division V. 43 instead of 2 3. The  principal's room the other day had  co be re-arranged to avoid the overcrowding.  ....The divisions now stand: Div. J.,  3!), Div. II. 35; Div! III. 30; Div. IV.  37: Div. V. 44.  High school,  40:  Total 225.  The services of the Domestic Science teacher, Miss Coughlan and Mr.  fllingworth are required now for a-  bout three days instead of two as at  present.  j'-f-t the school grow.  PREMIER   AVILL   OPEN  FAIR  Capt. McKenzie of the Mission-  Mai-squi ferry, is away on a short  holiday, the first since he took charge  of the ferry some years ago.  (From the Fraser Valley Record)  Premier Oliver will be in Mission  City on fair day and open the exhibition. It is altogether likely if it  is a nice afternoon that several of  Vancouver's prominent citizens will  motor out for the opening at 1 p.m.  or thereabouts.  ii-  Pte.
