The entry list was much larger  than in former years, the exhibits of  poultry and live stock being greatly  increased, and showing a higher  quality.  ��������� One' outstanding feature of the  exhibits was the splendid show of  potatoes, which was far above the  average.  A very fine display of honey was  exhibited, prizes' being won by T. L.  White."  In the, ladies' section the cooking  and canned goods drew forth much  comment, as did also the display of  school work, which was particularly  worthy of note. A lovely exhibit of  roses of numerous' varieties was on  display from the nursery of Mr. Dean  of Aldergrove.  ���������*������       ,  Several entries were received from  Mrs. Stedman, of McLeod, Alberta,  who was a large prize winner in  the ladies'rwork.

A. BATES, Editor and Proprietor  FRIDAY,   SEPTEMBER   21,   1923  The fall fairs in the   Fraser   Valley and  their products are the   great   topic   of, ihe  week.     A visit to any one of them will show  the progress that the   farming   communities  are making these clays. The fruits, vegetables  and other farm produce, together    with the  horses, cattle, sheep, pigs and poultry,    are  in general excellent.   An inspection of school  work where exhibited shows that our schools  are keepink time with the great march of progress in farming   districts.     Those   who are  competent to judge state   that that   department directly under the   management of   the  women of the Fraser Valley is    equally   as  good, if not in many cases more   up-to-date,  than that seen at the city fairs.       , It would  surprise many who do not know the country  district to see the taste displayed by the ladies  of the Fraser Valley in all classes of women's  work.   And the cooking looks most tempting.  The fairs then would   indicate that the man,  the woman and the, child'of our farming communities put thought and skill of the highest  degree into all their work.  A few years ago   and   during   the war,  when our government    stressed production,  the country people heeded the command   and  carried out their duty in this respect as it was  impressed upon them. Many strides have been  made by all on the land, and not   always to  their advantage. ,. The progress   made in the  past seven or eight years, has, in our estimation, put the farming   communities    of   the  Fraser Valley away   ahead of   the   progress  made by our cities.   The percentage of those  on the land is much greater to day than     is  , really required to meet supply and demand of  our cities as the market indicates.   Yet there,  apepars to be no halt in the production of the  farm and field.    Today there is ah over production of hay, potatoes and fruit of all kinds.  Hay is a good crop and the   prices   are low,  there not being the market for it.    Our   orchards are overflowing .with    apples, plums  and prunes that will rot on the ground.     The  other day the editor of this paper was offered  a ton of prunes if he would take them away.  They were almost   valueless as   there   is no  market for them.   This is only one   example  of over production without a market.  The enormous production of the Fraser  Valley without adequate marketing conditions  is becoming a serious matter to the producer.  The value of his dollar today has not by any  means kept pace with this power to produce.  And every year his dollar appears to have less  buying power. One would suppose from a  casual visit through the Fraser Valley that  the farmers and fruit growers were prosperous,  but    the probability that negotiations Have been carried  on for some time past with the minister of railways  for the acquisition of the railway by a syndicate  which would be friendly to the C. P. R.���������Prince  George Citizen.  SHINGLES  While there are a very large number of fir logs in  the water, loggers do not anticipate that the bottom  will drop out of the market; but they are apprehensive of what will happen to cedar, and as they have  to log the cedar to get at the fir, this is a serious  matter. Cedar is heavy on the market, because , the  demand for shingles has greatly decreased. ,  For years the makers of patent roofing have been  financing a very persistent system of advertising  against the cedar shingle; and the shingle manufacturers in possession of a market which nothing seemed to disturb, did nothing to , counteract; but  this campaign has at length taken effect and the  shingle operators will have to take counter action  if they are to regain their market. It should not be  difficult. Cedar, while not possessing ' the strength  of fir, has the unique property of resisting the inroads of parasites' and thus has durability, owned by  no other wood. There must be avenues for research  along theBe lines.���������Comox Argus.  ���������������������>������������������  " 'Tis the heart's voice alone can reach the. heart."  ���������De Mussett.  The invention of the telephone^resulted, not from an  effort to find a means of. communication, but from the  doep pity in the heart of the inventor for those without  the ability to hear the human voice.  The range of the unaided voice is only a few feet;  but tlie same voice speaking into the telephone may be  heard a mile or three thousand miles away. The inflections, the accents, the individuality are all transmitted  faithfully. ��������� .  The" telephone stands ready day or night to transmit  your voice to relative, friend, or anyone with whom you  have need of speech. The telephone is the universal  instrument. .   :  British Columbia Telephone Company  The farmer has got to fight for everything he  gets; he has always done so and always will, and  the only possible way he can recapture that fruit  business is to go after it in a business way.  The only remedy is to advertise B. C. fruit until  the consumer will think, talk and. eat nothing  but B. C. fruit;, until, for his selfish interest, the  consumer will.be afraid to buy anything except B. C.  fruit. Appealing to a man's greed or his desires will  get nowhere, but appeal to his necessities and his  fears and he will begin to talk business. Toll him  how to prepare fruit; how to preserve it. Tell him  about the economy of fruit, the health resulting  from a fruit diet, and keep on telling him, and you  will keep on selling him.  If there were any other way to successfully market,  fruit or other commodities', it Avould    have been    a-  dopted by successful    institutions    long ago.���������Farm  and Home.  oncermn  Vancouver is to be commended in its action to boost that city and incidentally its surroundings, to the prospective tourist in the U.  S. and Canada. It is hoped that the necessary  amount aimed at will be secured and that the  campaign. will be a grand success. The whole  province will be the better for a wise campaign advertising the beauties of B. C. abroad.  The scenery is fine all the year round, and the  climate is such that automobile traffic can be  enjoyed at the coast and in the Fraser Valley  almost' every day in the year.  The tide for the return of those who have  left the province for the south is about due.  If Vancouver and B. C. does not get the people  on their northward migration it is a sure  thing there will not be the opportunity' again  for some time.    Boost while the rush is on.  COST OF HOTELS  They are talking about the need of a new hotel in^  Kingston.   The Whig emphasizes the absolute necessity of keeping the price down to the lowest possible  figure.    "Something less   pretentious   than the    one  suggested, and yet an hotel that would have at least  150 rooms, is what the city needs.    An    hotel    that  would cost $6.000i:a room is entirely out of question."  Modern hotels are necessarily more'expensive than,  the older ones because of the demand for individual  bathrooms, which it is1 most    desirable    to    provide.  But it Bhould be possible to make the cost of a room  -less than that of a house.    Ornament should  be cut  down as much as possible,    and size should be kept  within   bounds.     Many  travellers  would  be  satisfied  with a small room if it were clean and sanitary. This  is mentioned, not as advice to    Kingston in particular, but as a matter that should    be    kept in    mind  everywhere.      Men of small    means    want to travel  for business or pleasure, and they    neither    require  nor can afford palaces to sleep in.������������������Toronto Globe.

One  is the Christian way employed by the McKinley administration after the war with Spain, where the  peace terms were so generous as to bind the two  countries together in closer bonds of friendship. The  other Is the pagan way by which the legions of Rome  consolidated the fruits of the conquest of Carthage  by wiping the entire Carthaginian people off the face  of the earth and writing on the 'sands of time,  "Carthago delenda est." Half-way measures aro  fatal.���������Los Angeles Times.  Following a reduction of the price of gasoline to 30  cents a gallon at the Coast yesterday, the price of gas  was cut in Kamloops this morning from 42 cents to  39 cents.  While the big oil companies have other reasons to  Is that B.C. auto owners at Coast points have found it  highly profitable to run across the international  border to purchase their mo.tor fuel." The big joke,  however, is the announcement that the companies  would lose money through the reduction.  A day or two ago gas was cut to 16 cents the  American gallon in Seattle. As it takes six U.S. gallons to equal ,five Canadian gallons, the new B. C  Coast price is actually 25" cents as compared with the  Seattle price of 16 cents, and it is this "difference of  over fifty per cent, that the motorists of this province  are kicking about. We in Kamloops have a further  kick to make, for we cannot see the justice of a difference of 9 cents a gallon between our gas cost and  that, at the Coast. No one will accept fhe statement  that transportation of gasoline from Vancouver to  Kamloops is worth 9 cents a gallon.���������Kamloops Telegram.  ^  Phone 6720  Hub Square  Mission City, B. G.  SOME  RURAL  MAIL  REGULATIONS  Although President    Beatty    of    the C P. R., and  Premier Oliver have felt called    upon    to    deny   the  story that arrangements have    been    completed    for  the leasing of the P. G. E. railway    to.the C. P. R.,  with a purchase option, there is    nevertheless' every  likelihood that legislation to sanction an arrangement  of this nature will be submitted to the. legislature   at  its approaching session in October.   The president   of  the railway    company is    probably    correct    in      his  statement that his company    has not    opened negotiations with  the provincial government for the    acquisition of the P. G. E., but this does   not   preclude] winter.  During the prohibition campaign when the iniquitous component parts of malted beverages and their  deleterious effects were greatly emphasized in certain quarters we suggested that it would be in the  public interest if the government ascertained the nature and effects of many of the so-called temperance  drinks.  It may be taken for granted that nothing has been  done. The matter comes again to the fore In connection with suggestions for the marketing of small  fruits and particularly of loganberries. There is no  doubt that people would prefer pure fruit juices to  much of the chemical and colouring matter which we  understand is utilized in soft drinks bearing fascinating names.���������The Cowichan Leader.  The middle verse of the Bible is the 8th verse of  the 118th Psalm.  A rural mail box, once paid for,"  becomes the absolute property of.  the purchaser, arid he must keep it  properly erected and in good repair. Failure to do this may result  in the Department discontinuing  service to that box. The owner of a  rural mail box removing to another  route may take box with him and  erect it on such a route, but he  should notify the Post Office Inspector for the division of his intention  to do so in order that the necessary  instructions may be given to all concerned. Permission may be obtained  from the Inspector for the transfer  of a box to another qualified resident.  To insure the safety of mail matter a penalty is provided by law for  depredations on rural mail boxes or  their contents. Cases of depredations on or interference with boxes  or their contents should be promptly  reported with a full statement of  facts and names of suspected parties',  to the Post Office Inspector in  charge of the division in which such  depredations occur.

C: Associated Growers report a heavy demand for mixed cars  at country points. ��������� Prices near the  peak of peaches and prunes, have  been forced down by Wash, and internal competition, owing to a temporary over-supply.  Transcendent ��������� Crabapples are retailing here as low as 75tf per box,  due to tho slow movement. Tomatoes  are firming'in price. There is no  outsido competition in apples. B. C.  is sending In some excellent Wealthies. Prunes and plums are dragging  a little. Good Italian prunes should  keep in storage for a month yet, and  this fact should prevent them being  forced on sale now.  We are informed that an employee  of a defunct wholesale house is soliciting orders at country and city'  points for B.C. prunes. Ho Is offering them at.72(������ delivered.

Arrivals are in  very fair condition and prices keeping fairly level. Plums are hanging,  and some varieties are hard to move  and, prices will have to drop in  order to move them'quickly. Prunes  are arriving in fairly large quantity.  Car arrivals, Sept. 6th to 12th���������  B.C., four apples; ten mixed fruit  and vegetables; two mixed fruit;  two prunes. Imported, five mixed  fruit;   two peaches;  one pear.  This market is flooded with  Washington and B. C. cantaloupes.  We see some offered retail standard  size, at "three for 25^. We tasted  one of these and found them .very  deficient in flavor. We expect that,  this is. the reason for selling them  at a sacrifice, price, as this size ia  retailing;at,-25$ each, in fancy stores.  LThe-shipments now arriving from  Oliver, :B.

They are growing' ��������� cants to provide  money to. live on,-.and pay taxes until their orchards begin - to bear.  These .can.sell."retail at two for 25(������.  We. have been informed that owing  to-- the congested , .-market, due to  Washington?importations, that Brokers have advised' these men to dis-  contimie shipping.. :We; ��������� are advising them toVship,'and'drive out-importations, and we know their superior flavor and reasonable price  will do it.  WINNIPEG,       Sept.       14.���������Fruit  business on the    Winrtfpeg    market  has picked up considerably this past  week and  both  retailers and wholesalers' state, that it is easier to move  the fruit than it has been up to date  this year.    B.C.  Wealthies are    on  the market,in.large   quantities    and  arc selling freely    being    fine stock  particularly in crates.    B. C. prunes-  are better than  other years but the'  peaches' 'are not very ripe    being. El-  bertas and Crawfords and there are  still lots of imported    peaches here  there being four cars' on track today.  Oht. are shipping plums and  tomatoes, but no peaches yet although the  first car of grapes from Niagara arrived yesterday.    The following are  the car receipts since last report:  Prom B.C., Apples, 23; mixed/ 2;  onions, 2; pears, 2; prunes, 1; From  Ontario, mixed fruit, 3; grapes, 1;  plums, 1; tomatoes, 1. .

There are a few Okanagan peaches on the market but very low It  is said, that the bulk of that crop is  going to the prairie.  Plums and prunes    are    plentiful  and very cheap.    Italian prunes  can  be bought in bulk as low as 2������  lb  and even that    low    price    can    be  slightly shaded.  Although the tomato deal is not  in a very healthy condition yet It is  better than a week ago. Ripe stock  was then selling as low as '25^ per  crate. Lighter receipts now enable  dealers to keep a comparatively  clean floor with the result that  forced sales oh ripe stock are not so  common. 25 lb. lugs can still be obtained for ?0tf which is not a very  satisfactory price from the grower's  point of view. Receipts from the  Delta district have been unexpectedly heavy and have been a weakening  influence upon the market.  Vancouver, has been treated to  the unusual sight of strawberries  being hawked from door to door in  September. This was ,the result of  unusually heavy receipts of the Dun-  lop ^variety. The stock was for the  most part nice and firm, and ��������� well  flavored.    Sales  ranged from  $2.00  CO   Jp ti. 0 0.

The movement of Bartletts from  the Wenatchee district .continues although the volume' 'is falling off, as  the season advances. There are also  plentiful supplies from-the Lower  Mainland which range widely in  quality and price. Many shippers  in this' last-mentioned district make  the mistake of picking , their pears  late making it necessary to. effect a  hasty sale if shrinkage is to be a-  voided.  ��������� Apples are in good supply. Imports  are now negligible. To. enumerate  varieties would be a lengthy task'.  The market would be better served  if varieties were confined to a few  of the better known and more' popular kind. The names of well known  varieties have an advertising ' value  which is of some assistance in making sales.  iTranscendant crabapples are slow  movers. They seem to be out of favor with the housewife for some  reason or other.  Imports of peaches are practically  double of the imports for the preceding week and are the highest this  lambia to other points' in Canada,  while an additional 1000 cases were  exported to the Old Country since  the beginning of the year.  VICTORIA, Sept. 18���������The views  of provincial cabinet ministers and  private members have not yet been  officially canvassed hi connection  vvth proposed beer legislation, but  amendments to the present laws designed, to improve conditions ��������� surrounding iho distribucioi of beer in  British Columbia are certain to 'bo  introduced during the next session  of the House, Premier Oliver intimated.  "Judging from the statements' of  church ,organizations and not a few  others, there is alreadv too much  beer in tlie province," said the premier witli a smile, when asked  whether the government was considering action to lessen the restrictions on the purchase of beer.  "The     conditions     , which     have  caused   the  outcry  against  the government are not of the government'3  making and  we are not responsible  forthem," said the premier.  ,    "Conditions'  in   Vancouver   so   far  as the sale of beer is concerned, are  as  wide open as  they    could  be,  in  my    opinion,"    said    the    premier.  "When  I    was  in     Vancouver    last  week I saw welcome    signs    on the  entrances to beer clubs, and nothing  could be more open than that.  "'No matter what legislation we  pass, certain interests will endeavor  to weaken its effect by the passage  of by-laws and other measures. I  do not say that Vancouver's club bylaw was drafted with the set purpose  of.. defeating the objects of the government, but I do say without the  slighest hesitation that such an' effect has been achieved.  "The conditions' which church organizations .complain of in Vancouver are the product of municipal legal machinery and not of the provincial government. My only conclusion  respecting those who continue to criti  cize the government on the beer situation is that their judgment has  been warped by party jrejudice."  NEAJtLY 25,000 U. S. CARS  ARE CLEARED IN 10~ WEEKS  HALF MILLION HOTEL  VANCOUVER,    Sept.   14.���������A contract was    awarded    this week    for  the construction    of  an    apartment  hotel   on  the  northeast     corner    'of  Georgia    and" Hornby    streets, opposite the    Courthouse,  ' which will  cost    $55 0,000.      The   project    has  been under     consideration for some  time  and  one of the factors  which  led its sponsors to go ahead was the  remarkable  increase  in   Vancouver's  tourist trade this summer,    and the  general    feeling    that    good    times  were returning.  Do the public appreciate the service, your store can give to them?  When they awnt to buy do they  when they want to buy do they  wonder where they can purchase the  goods? . It means something to you  to have them think of your store  first.  The total number of motor cars  from the United States crossing the  border at Blaine, Huntingdon, Aldergrove and Douglas In the period  between July 1 and September 10,  was 24,578, according to figures fur.r  nished to the Vancouver Automobile  Club, by the chief inspector of Canadian border custom offices.  Figuring three passengers to the  car���������admittedly a low estimate���������  the customs figures show that in less  than two months and a half 72,724  Americans visited the lower mainland.  During the same period, 14,913  Canadian cars crossed the border at  these four ports of entry southbound.  As the great majority of cars that  came north and went south returned by way of the same route; the  customs officers have had the handling of nearly 80,000 cars.  There would be 32 level railway  crossings on the Fraser Canyon  route of the provincial highway, according to Princeton people; but  Kamloops  say  "only   one."

I engineers  Inspect Grain  on Virgin Soil  In an excursion arranged by the  B.C. branch of the Canadian Society  of Technical Agriculturists, a party  of judges and experts visiting the  Provincial Fair motored to Sumas  Lake dyking operations on Friday.  (Leaving New Westminster at 8:30  a. m., the seven cars reached Ab-  otsford at 10:45, where, they were  met by the escort of engineers and  Land Settlement Board officials',  who led the party out to the west  prairie lands, where grain crops were  inspected that had been grown this  year on virgin soil. The excellence  of the produce was noted by the scientists, the corn, grass, oats and  barley being of prime quality, promising, great things of the soil when  it has been worked up.  where 150 square miles' of drainage  is to be concentrated >t two points    ���������'   -*   -    by the  Chief Engineer Moe, who took  charge of the party at the works,  said that 10,000 acres of water were  now reduced to 3000. The pumps  had to be stopped because the feed  was not fast enough now. A canal  must be dug to connect up the shallows and guide the lingering waters  to the pump intake. The dredge was  moving across the prairie to cut  this ditch, and if it proceeded as  expected the lake would be a dry  basin by the middle of October. The  pumps could empty it in ' ten clays  if they could get hold of the water.  Arriving rather late for lunch, the  visitors'did ample justice to a sumptuous board spread out on the grass  for them by the camp cooks.  They were then ferried across the  new channel of the Vedder, with a  good view of the three miles of correct behavior now shown by the  river between its big dykes'.  The experts were keenly interested in the quality of the soils, a&  thrown up by the dykes, the system  of drainage and the manner of sub*  division.  iNo reclaimed land has' been put  on the market as yet, though on office is prepared for this business in  Chilliwack. Forty acre farms are  suggested for the new lands, but  the price is not yet determined.  For the benefit of the visitora  three of the four huge pumps were  set in motion. These are the largest  of their kind and ;the first of their  size in America and are capable of  moving 27,000,000 gallons of water  an hour, forcing a solid stream of  water to six feet by six, from the inside to the outside of the concrete  dam. The monstrous screws started  wifb the soft purr of a first class  a������to engine, the intake canal began  gently to ripple, in a few moments  it was seething rapids, rushing to  the machinery, while on the other  side of the basin was a cauldron of  upspringing    currents    where fishes  were thrown up dazed and broken,  an easy prey to the screaming gulls  that had waited for such an hour.  While the pumps were working  some days ago," it was seen that  sturgeon six feet or more long had  been drawn to the grids of the intake, their heads were held to the  bars by the strong suction of the  pumps which prevented them from  turning to escape. An S.O.S. call  was made to the fisheries department to save ' them before the  waters go. The magnitude of the  scheme, the carefulness of: the details, the preparations to meet every contingency stirred the visitors  to admiration. "'.": ."  They saw this ancient lake deprived of its turbulent feeder, the Vedder on the east and robbed of its  rivers on the west, the Sumas, Marshall, Arnold and Saar, that now  run in an independent channel a-  long the moutain side and see the  lake no more; then the lake itself,  with only small springs and seepage  to moisten it; sucked dry like an  orange by these silent engines.  Prof. F. E. Buck, U.B.C., president  of the society, was in charge of the  excursion. With him were Dr. J.  H. Reed of the O.A.C., Guelph, Ont.;  Dean Clement, Professors W. S.  Golding, A. S. Barss, A. V. As-  mundson, R. G. Skelton, J. Leckie  and other members of the agricultural staff of the university; Henry  Rive, provincial dairy commissioner; W. Dounes and A. Shotbolt.

Berry and Mr. C.  E. Hope of Langley.  "Bara Lad" owned by Louis  Welch of the Colony Farm holds the  world's record for high jumping. He  can clear the bars at 7 feet 1 inch.  f-?I  > Si  4  i  I
