 iPB|(J.  1 ^^s^^^^^^Wffi^  With which is incorporated  i he  luiiLmgdon  Star"  Vol. XX,, No. 20  ABBOTSFORD. R, C.; FRIDAY, SEPT.   24,    11)20  <tl*i������-'.af.I^gn> o  $1.00  PER  Year  The next important fair for  , the people of the Fraser. Valley  is the one at New Westminster  next week. And to show that  this is tho case most of the  district associations will have  a district exhibit there as an  ��������� indication of thier interested-  ness. '  The New Westminster fair  is the oldest fair on the Mainland and people have come to  look forward to ,the .annual  exhibition at New Westminster as part of the life of the  Valley and nearly ' everybody  . attends either as a visitor or as  an exhibitor. , It is looked upon as the annual fall outing for  thousands of people in the Fraser Valley.  This year there . is   promise  .   that the fair will be bigger and  r   better than ever, and great preparations have been made   by  -     the  energetic board of direct-  .   ors, meeting with much greater  .<..",iJencpujagement.,this year than  last year,    their' motto   being  ��������� 'the Vancouver    Fair may   be  good but the New Westminster  fair will be just a little better,  if possible.'  With fair weather., and    the  chances  are that Jupiter  Plu-  vius will want a rest about that  time, the exhibition should be  "a grand    success;     everything  else will be first class.  -    Apart from the exhibits them  selves    the* lacrosse    matches  should be quite an attraction.  New Westminster and Vancouver will compete for the Minto  ; Cup and this year both teams  are fairly evenly matched. The  games should be good ones.  Exhibitors from the prairie  provinces'have come to the  coast to attend the Vancouver  Victoria and New Westminster  fairs, and those who saw the  cattle exhibits in Vancouver  are recommending their friends  to see them at New Westminster.  If yoir have not seen the auto  polo played it will be worth  your while to take a day off to  see that alone���������that is if you  enjoy excitement and a good  laugh.  Encourage production in the  Fraser Valley by attending the  fair .this year at New Westminster. ���������  WHAT OF A ROA'I) VOLlC'i  With-the approach of winter  and the season for roadmaking  being about past for 1920 one  begins to wonder why nothing  more has not been done to the  roads ol! the Fraser Valley by  the provincial government, and  also'if the government ever intends to formulate a road  scheme and take the people into their confidence, in order to  allay the unrest, among the men  whose business it is to use the  roads, either for business or  pleasure.  The road schemes of other  parts of the continent should"  be studied and some plan for  the future of good roads made.  Mission City is a sufferer by  not having better roads leading  to it; so is Abbotsford; and so  is every, other town "in Fraser  Valley.. iParficular.road's might  be mentioned that if "not kept  in' repair act to the detriment  of the settlers. -As an'example  of what' is - meant ��������� the'- road beJ  tween Mission City and- Hafzi'c  mights be -i listanced. w.TJus^ftas  in the past been looked upon  as a government road. The  small fruit farms line the one  side o'f this road. The dust  from the heavy traffic over this  road must destroy more fruit  each year than would pay for  the oiling of the road. The  same may be said of other,glV(!Jl a wo  small portions of road scatter-"chair.  ed throughout the ' fruit    dis-1    A ���������v������*  PERSONALS  uviiinoii  have  k's   holiday   (o  When Premier Oliver visited  the district last week he went  down and admired Een,a; he  took a trip; he-took'down some  figures in connection .with the  fares; and went awa3r.

Tpdiiy.as the C. P. R. was shunting  back and forth and the B. C. F. It.  doing likewise a number of cars and  riges accumulated on either side. It  is always a moment of excitement  when the rights of way is cleared  and drivers are usually very careful.  A live organization like the board  of trade should take up this matter  of-shuiUing with the two companies  and see if the switching cannot be  done on some other part of the track  as there are many reports of holdups on Essendene Avenue, that are  detrimental to business, and the general public are getting quite tired of  the long waits.  The', through road to ' the  coast is another matter of importance, whether it be the  Dewdney Trunk or the Yale  Road. True some money has  been spent but why not spent  judiciously. Imagine putting  small round stones, sometimes  called gravel on a road to such  an extent that it ��������� makes the  road dangerous for auto traffic.  This is what has been done on  the Yale road year after year  for the last three or four years.  The Dewdney road while good  in places is yet just as narrow  as it was last year, the year before or thc year before thai,  making traffic dangerous, unnecessarily.  Every effort is being made to  have industries on ' the north  side of the-river and it may be  that in the near future an industry with millions of dollars  of investment, may be in operation, and the natural outlet to  this will-be Mission City, but  because our road foreman does  not approve of the through  :oad by way of the Stave Falls  keeper  A coniuunicaliou from a prairie  editor was received regarding the  starting of.printing a news paper in  Abbotsford.

The cement works  nearby had  removed from this spot  thousands of tons of .sand and shale  lor utilization in the manufacture of  cement, and it would be hard to conceive of a   more   desolate spot than  these dry, grey acres which looked  dead   beyond   resuscitation.*   Not a  blade,  of  grass  grew   there,   not   a  trickle   of water    laved    the gaping  ' .thi rs tin ess of It,'not a bird sent its  note across its waste, even the un-  fastidious crows disdainfully ignored  it. A hundred feet above it the woods  ���������were green enough, and forest flowers thrived in fragrant'profusion, but  no wind-wafted seeds could take root  !n the dry sand and clay of the monstrous grave;  they withered and died  for want of sustenance, and because  of the charm of the wooded glades  above, the excavation looked all the  more Incongruous and unsightly.  -   Today  that same  incongruity has  become one of the "most lovely garden  spots in the whole length and breadth  of America, not excluding the famous gardens of southern California.  It is the Mecca of thousands of tourists every year, and  as there is no  jreal    winter    weather on    favoured  isouth Vancouver Island, the garden  iblooms   practically   the  whole  year  round.  ��������� I   How was this miracle accomplished?   Man's Ingenuity aided by ever-  gracious    Nature,    is   the    answer.  Black loam by 'torus was carried into  the   excavation,  packed   up   against  ,the clay-banks, and around the rocks,  placed  in  thick  layers  all  over the  llevels, and in the very heart of (he  iiuge  hole, .water   was   fed   from   a  flake.    Far above the  banks  in the  pods themselves, a stream was di-  the thirsty clay in a clean, bright" fall  that splashed into the lake.   A huge  pinnacle  of rock that stood in  the  centre    of the    barren    acres    was  banked with rich soil, while the same  soil  was  placed in all of its holes  and crannies.    Rock stairways were  built    from    the rim of   excavation  | down into the place itself, a hundred  walks, and by-paths and stretches of  lawn  were  mapped  out,  and 'great  beds  made.      Rustic  bridges    were  built across the lake, and the stream  itself,    and    then    the  seeding and  planting began.   Scores of men were  employed in the first stages of the  work,  and  expert landscape  gardeners, for not only was the  excavation to be made into a great sunken  garden, but the ground above, which  had been cleared, wais to be laid out  in lawns,  a rose-garden, a tea-garden, and. a combination of Japanese  and fairy garden. More little streams  from "the'woods were moved into this  upper   garden   and  nourished   from  underground pipes, to send up rainbow fountains here and there.   Avenues of hawthorns and   other ornamental    trees    were planted   and a  thousand   feet ��������� or more  of pergolas  built   A large tea-house and a half  a score    of  other    little    summer-  houses,  all  of the  most artistically  rustic      design,      were      scattered  throughout the different gardens, and  every flower and shrub that grows  found its home there.   The pergolas  were hung with climbing roses, the  tea-house    graced   in clematis    and  wistaria,    and each little    summer-  house had its own Individual garment  of colour.   ��������� ���������  This upper garden Is the first one  to be traversed by the risitor, and  having seen all of its loveliness, the |  with their   dwarf trees   and  shrubs,    their   iris-crowned    ban'cs,  their flower-hung pagodas, the elves,  the dragons, the tiny fairy forests of  elfland, and  the bewildering beauty  of the    rose-gardens,  one's    senses  seem    almost    satiated, until    by ������  secret path    one emerges    suddenly  upon the rim of the sunken gardens.

' The car shortage from  Eastern points has re'tarded tho  trade. Ontario Crawford peaches  arrived here in good condition, al!  except the last car���������many of them  had to be repacked. Seven cars of  Elberta,peaches have ben placed on  order by a Calgary jobber in Ontario  A car of ripe tomatoes arrived here  from the Okanagan and are now iv.  storage awaiting their ripening. They  were  shipped  too  green.  Very little complaints are made  on the B. C. fruit this year. The only  complaint we hear is insufficient  volume.
