The clear  of the aftcrnon  brought out  number of visitors.       ! '  ��������� ,  The exhibits were splendidly displayed in tho agricultural hall, and  wore of a quality which made the  ninth annual exhibition the grand  success it was. The hall itself was  most tastefully decorated and the exhibits looked'at their, best.  .President J. Morrison introduced  the Hon. 13. 0. Barrow, minister of  agriculture who delivered the open-  - ing address from the steps of the  hall to a large audience, about half  past one, declaring the exhibition  open. '   ���������  Mr. Barrow, who had not at that  stage had an opportunity of inspecting the exhibits, said he understood  from the judges that they had been  very favorably impressed with their  quality. At this season of the year  when the farmers were busy, he  could understand some did not care  to jeopardize their crops by devoting  time to stock -to fit it for exhibition  but they all knew the class of dairy  cattle in particular owned by the farmers of Matsqui. The local cattle  stood-very high'in' milk production,  and were a big factor1 in. the. dairy  products of B. C The-special attention now being paid to the cultivation of sunflowers for ensilage in  this district was of great interest.  Mr.. Hay ton had' a- big area iu sunflowers and the crop would, he hoped  demonstrate its value for feed. That  was a factor of importance as land  was. now getting so high in price  that it could not, in many cases, be i  profitably used for pasturing,     -band  Sheep  he saul Ihat the fact- must not be  lost sight of that it was tlie farmers  wJio let tho Orientals obtain land.

Pasturing was all  right and economical where there  was lots of land available, but here  where it was possible to produce a  larger value per acre people were  more and more turning attention to  growing ensilage and intensive farming. The acreage in small fruits in  the Fraser Valley had doubled this  year and more attention was being  paid to that phase of production  than'ever before. But they must not  neglect the dairy .cow as wherever  the country was particularly adopted for dairying and men had gone in  for it intelligently they found . the  most prosperous communities in B.  G. Dairymen in such centres wcro  more prosperous than those who devoted themselves to other lines of  agriculture. Even on the prairies  where tho tanners who would not  consider anything but straight grain  were now rinding if profitable to go  into mixed farming.  A matter of particular local interest, that of the ferry service to Mission City, he had under consideration recently and desired to make  an announcement concerning it.  Some residents objected to the imposition of a ferry tariff, lie had attended a meeting on the Mission side  of the river a week or so ago on the  subject, at which considerations on  the tariff scale were submitted. Me  had taken the matter up with Dr.  King, who, with him, held that tho  .representations regarding the charges on the local ferry should carry  some weight and would go into the  matter with the Premier and the cabinet at the first opportunity. The definite settlement of the point might  he expected very-shortly. But he was  absolutely convinced of the justification for the adoption of the principle  of a charge being made for ferry service. People who used the ferry  should contribute to the cost of its  upkeep.  Generally speaking fairs largely  indicated the progress of a community-���������they were an encouragement of  the community spirit.

Mrs  Henley said of the cooking exhibit:  "if all women were the cooks that  the Matsqui women are there would  be fewer divorces." Mrs. Watson stated that "there was hot a poor article among the cooking exhibits and  that she was both pleased and delighted with the interest taken iu the  fair. The fancy work exhibit was  very large, in fact the largest of any  of the fall fairs that have been attended this year. The ladies of Mats  qui municipality have stood hand in  hand with the men to make this fair  the decided success that it undoubtedly was.  Cecil Trice, of Victoria, the judge  of the field products, was warm in  his praise. "This has been one of the  most successful'fairs that J have  judged this year, The products are  all good, the judging cf them has  been extremely difficult, all products  being equally good. The potato assort  inent is particularly good. I feel that,  the farmers of Matsqui have every  reason to feel proud of their fair  this year and are quite deserving of  the name that they have among the  judges in this part of the province,  as being near the head of the list in  field products, and gal-den varieties"  The flowers and fruit were judged  by E. C. Hunt, of the Washington  State Agricultural'College. "The  fruits, apples especially, are to my  mind the best that could be grown"  he said. "The flowers were rather  spoilt by the rain on Thursday, but  it was plain to be seen that the amateur'florists of this municipality had  spent sometime on the flowers." The  roses were especially beautiful, and  all visitors commented upon them.  The art exhibit was small. Mrs. E.  J. Anseth, of Dennison exhibited for  display only, twelve very beautiful  paintings that added greatly to the.  beauty   of   the   art   section.  The Matsqui fair ended with a big  dance in the evening, in the beauti-  fuly decorated hall.

The .advertising pays for part of the goods and  .nakes it possible to deliver the  joods cheaper.  The paper advertising is considered the best because it.

Do you understand thai it is a guarantee of Quality and the Agent of  Economy? Do you .realize that if  you are''to succeed in- any business  or any profession Advertising Will  Help. _'ou? 'Advertising is the Language ot Business, it is the Bright  Light by which Commerce and Industry find their way throughout the  Nation.  Not alone husinss men, merchants  advertising men or editors are interested   in   advertising.  The whole country, every citizen,  every woman, every ,child, derives  benefit- from tlie advertising art,  which has been developed within iho  present generation.  Every scholboy knows how the human race has begun iis menial development since language was'discovered. Uefore men could speak  they could not tell each other their  ideas or help each other.  What language is to. the human  race Advertising is "to Business, industry, Commerce, Manufacturing  and Economy.  Advertising is flic l":,.r;iago of  trade, the language of vimi-ty, the j  language of prosperity,, tho' language '  of tlie man of today determined lo \  do iu his.lite what in former years'  could be done in lower than half a!  dozen generations. ; I  Advertising a's tho word   indicates'  is   Giving   information. j  Literally translated, the word  means "lo-turn to," from the Latin  of   ad���������lo���������and   verto���������turn.  The advertisements turn the public  io  the thing wanted.  Advertising, tho voice of commerce, tells the work that the thinkers, fighters aud inventors of industry are doing.  Very "old. indeed, is advertising.  The rainbow in Iho-clouds, according  to (lie Scriptures, was ono of tho  early adveriisoiuouis. It promised,  that men'should not- be destroyed  with a flood again. In that advertisement, .brilliant, in color, magnificent in size, supremo power announced the fact, that liiaf parlicula.  llood was to bo Ihe last Hood.  Caesar used the advertisement  when, fighting ihe patricians and using (he bulk of (he people against  his enemies in Iho senate, he caused  the proceedings ofDfhe senate to be  advertised' on the walls of Rome.  That was tho lirsf seminioderii advertising, r  The. object, of men (hat create is to  make I hri,"creations knov. n. , I  And  the  task  that advertising accomplishes and that, nothing else Can  accomplish  is  to make , known   fo all-  the'o'fforls,   tho  results,' flic  inducements, of tho individual.  -  Many and ingenious have been the  advertising methods of men since  the beginning.  ' ��������� ���������  It*.was Solomon's advertising of his  .wisdom���������411 various very respectable  ways���������that, brought the queen of  H'leha to see him. '  "Ti". "was advertising undoubtedly  wheir young C-ieppatra, hoping to get  the Roman power, behind her weak  kingdom, had herself wrapped up in  a vug and, thus wrapped up, delivered in Caesar's private apartment.'She  was disappointed in the result of that  advertisement- lor, although she became I he mother of little Cesarion,  Caesar's son, she was, not able to  influence or control him. And when  t;he took Antony as second best she  failed and  died.  It was good advertising when Cau-  piiicmj, the Indian chief, intending  to frighten the'little group of ,New  t-hi'glanders. filled a snake skin with  ���������iiTows and sent if to Governor Bradford. And if was still better advertising when that same governor filled  the snako skin with powder and bull-  ' cts and sent it. back fo Canonicus.  This Indian gentleman' looked at the  white  man's  advertisement    in     the  :,   Under the British North America  'Act of 1867 the. right to legislate on  matters respecting education in Canada was reserved exclusively to the  provincial   legislatures.     In   general  throughout    Canada    there are two  fundamental    systems  of education,  one    that of tha    Protestant    communities free from   the   control   of  religious bodies, and the other that  of Roman Catholic  communities  in  ���������whi-c-i education is  united with the  religious teaching of the church,  i    In  all  the  provinces  the  cost of  education is defrayed from the public revenue, provincial or local, and  public and elementary  education ia  absolutely free.    With the exception  of   Quebec   all   tie   provinces   have  laws   of  compulsory  s-chool  attendance, uniformity  in the training' of  teachers, text books and the g.-ading  of children.      Upon application tha Wm^.���������  provincial    government    gives^  im- &������*_____  mediate financial  assistance for .tho  erection of new schools where settlement warrants this or increased attendance  demands   a  large,   edifice.  Each year thousands of new schools  are ,built  throughout  the  length  of  the  country  especially  in  the  ever  growing    western    provinces.   ��������� Assistance in the payment of teachers  is    given  by a system    of    grants.

As it i_ Impossible for jnany of the  sons and'daughters of farmers to  attend all the year round and complete the courses, winter .sessions  are held in every province where  short courses are given imparting  a thorough training to boys and  girls over the public school ago in  Intelligent farming and scientific  methods, domestic science and other  phases of farm work.

Tlie history of the. world has been  a history of advertising, conscious  or unconscious. ���������  This generation of ours is'the first  that sees advertising as a science  and an art.  And even this generation does not  realize the importance'of advertising-  the dignify of advertising profession  the extraordinary part'that advertising is destined to play in the industry  ihe commerce and especially in the  .economy of the country.  ��������� The advertisement is to the industry and busirfess of the nation what  the bright, electric- light bulb tells  what the engine is .doing. The brilliantly worded advertisement ' tells  what industry, commerce, manufacturers, are doing. $  In the olden days everything was  slow. A man with great difficulty  managed to place his little store i.r, a  street where many passed. The people only could know what he was doing if they PASSED HIS store.-  Now a man puts his factory in a  distant town. Nobody'has seen it:  nobody knows perhaps whore it is.  But that man puts his name, his purposes, his accomplishments, IN THE  HANDS OP TENS OF MILLIONS OF  HUMAN BEINGS." He does not wait  for'the man to pass, his door. He  goes through the door of the house  in which the man lives and in this  monthly or" that weekly or in many  dailies presents to the man the story  that he has to tell.  Therein lies the power of advertising. You can' work today, and tomorrow you can tell the whole world  what you have done.  You can have a new idea this week  and next year that idea can be in the  minds of fifty millions of human beings. -  You are not bound by your location, limited by the strength of your  voice. Your voice is the voice of the  printing  press.  No man need waste a day if he has  the right idea and the energy and  knows how to talk for publication.  It is important that the l public  know what advertising means.  Especially important is the fact  that plenty of advertising almost invariably means AN EXCELLENT  AND HONEST PRODUCT.

In 1J12G tho Affiliated Unions of  Hod-Carriers and Waiters landed  the   two-hour day.  In   19 2 7  the unions of carpenters-  joiners,   barbers,   surgeons,   butchers  motormen,  ball-players,,  paper-hangers,   janitors,   lemonade   bartenders,  school children, brakemen, plumbers,  ; burglars,       mule-drivers.    -    caddies  i chiropodists and clergymen obtained  jthe one-hour day.

And they are becoming fewer, (hanks TO THE POWER  OF ADVERTISING.  For flic advertising of honest men  and of honest goods has made the  work of deceitful advertising mom  and more difficult, less and less remunerative.  Advertising is no longer used to  poll wooden nut megs or to sell a  "line steel engraving of the King for  [ii'tv cents," and which turns out t.o  be a Canadian two cent stamp with  the king's face upon it. Or the best  .wav to kill potato bugs for two dollars and when the package and advice comes along the instructions do  read "put the potato bug on one of  the blocks aud crush him with tho  other." These arc actual facts, but  can no longer exist on account of  advertising.  Advertising has almost ceased to  be misrepresentation, and it ban become the honest voice of commerce,  the agent of economy, AND THE  ECONOMY MUST BE CLEAR TO  ALL. It can be made clear in a  very few words.  You have a merchant who does nor  advertise.       He  pays  a   clerk   three  clerk  goods.  aolls  dollars   a   day.   and   the  fii'teen dollars* worth of  Naturally I hat merchant must first  nnv (he clerk bis two dollars out ot  ibo fifteen dollars that you pay for  Hie goods.

'Mr. and Mrs. Nelson Ham-  inc.rt.on, Powell River, when their  youngest, daughter, Olive May, was  united in matrimony to Mr. John  Clifford Notts, eldest, son of Mrs.  Notts of Powell River. The bride is  tho granddaughter of the late Gilbert I-lolden Orene Hamcrton, C.C.M.  hi.. 13. T."S., of London, England, and  niece of Lord and Lady Chesnell  Jl-arnerton, of Wellifield, Peel, Yorkshire, England. Sir Thomas Logard  I-liinierl.on of Canton, England, and  of Mr. Philip Gilbert Hamerton, the  English writer on art. Among his  poems were "The Isle of Loch Awa"  and "Intellectual Life."  The drawing room was transformed into a bower of bloom for the occasion and the ceremony was por-  .'"'���������"���������med under a beautifully decorated arch  by Rev.  Mr. McLeay.  The  bride  was  given  in  marriage  by  her father, and  looked a picture  of loveliness iii a gown of white char-  I mouse satin, gracefully draped with  I hand-enibroidorod   georgette. Her  ; (lowing  tulle  veil   fell  in soft 'folds,  'and was held In place with a coronet  of  arange"  blossoms.    She  carried  a  shower bouquet  of white lillies and  carnations.  Miss Rdith McNeil was in attendance as bridesmaid, and looked charming in a frock of white crepe de  chine trimmed with' touches of pale  blue, and a tulle picture hat. She  carried a shower bouquet of pink carnations and wore the gift of the  groom a cameo ring set with pearls.  Little Miss Yvonne House, neice of  tho bride, made a dainty little flower  girl, wearing a frock of white Chilton  with touches of pink, and pretty hat  to match. She carried a prettily decorated basket of pink and white  sweetpeas. She also wore the groom's  gift, a small gold  brooch.  Mrs. Charles Hill provided the wed ,  ding music and during the signing of j  the register. "[ Love You Truly" was  rendered in a pleasing manner by  Miss Gertrude Hill. Mr. Oswell  Notts acted as groomsman.  ���������Tlie groom's gift to Mrs. Hill was  a gold brooch set with onyx and pearl  to Miss Hill a cameo ring, while the  best man was the recipient of a gold  stick  pin.  'Following the ceremony a reception was held, the bride's mother receiving the guests and wearing a  handsome gown of black satin and  crepe de chine and had a corsage bou  quet of mauve asters. She was assisted by her daughters, Mrs. W. E. Paf-  ford and Mrs. G. A. House, the former wearing a dress of black silk  embroidered in gold, the latter, in a  gown of whito silk and georgete.  Mrs. Notts, mother of the groom  was attired in taupe taffeta and Georgette and wore a corsage bouquet of  mauve asters.  Mr. and Mrs. Notts left later for  iho Sound cities,'-where the honeymoon will be spent the youthful  bride travelling in a smart suit of  navy tricotine, with which she wore  a  large white velvet  with   ostrich   plumes  fur. .On their .return  pie  will  make their :  River.  hat,  and  (he y  ionic  trimmed  white fox  oung cou-  af Powell  WEEK   IK   CALGARY  Slight  showers,  some  clouds,   but  u.-iualy  fine  Is   this   week's  weather.  The country trade  is  very good  owing to the crop conditions being satisfactory.    The  outside  demand     in  general  is greater this year for apples and other fruits  than has been  for several years.    The. new freight  rates caused  quite an  excitement a-  mong dealers  here' and  the general  opinion  is that the award  is in   excess of the reasonable need.       Fruit  shippers  are more  concerned in  express rates, and it is hoped that the  expressed   public   opinion   in   regard  to-what is termed "excessive freight  rates" will have the effect of preventing express rates from mounting too  high.    There is little doubt but that  an   advance  will   take   place.       The  producers of food stuffs will demand  a hearing before a decision is given.  Ontario plums are offering in Calgary  in     large     quantities,    mostly  Greengage and  Damson.      The    demand for them has been good. Some  of the merchants for convenience removed   the   plums   from   the   11-qt.  baskets  and  placed  them     in     4-lb.  baskets.    This was a poor move, as  they look small and green when thus  displayed.    There   is  a   bright  rose-  colored  gauze  placed   on  the lid   or  window   of   the   11-qt.   basket     that  helps to make green plums look rosy  very effective  Several car  ford  peaches  and will sell  per basket.  in selling the fruit,  lots of Ontario Craw-  will arrive next week,  wholesale at about  ?2  No  Exemption  Ou Fruit  The following telegrams tell their  own story:  ;   Calgary, Sept. 9th, 1920  To C.
