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 finding 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 sell  what you want to sell.  t "  ���������HILL'S STORE NEWS  A New Line of BOOTS and SHOES  'Men's Heavy Work Boots, sizes (1 to 10 at HW.&O  Men's UniM Calf Heavy Boots, per pair $-1.50  Men's Box Kip Lace Boots, per pair, ; . . .' .$4.00  Men's Fine Velour Calf Blucher Cut, Boots, per pair. .$'1.50  Ladies Dongola Lace Boots, per pair  .$3.25  Ladies' Box Calf Boots, per pair $3.00 and ;...... .$8.50  Misses vBox Calf Lace Boots, per pair " ..-. v.$2.1)0  Boys' Boots, sizes 1 to 5, $2.50 to $3.10  "'YoulhlrI-ie������^y"S"cliool Boots, 11, 12,13, per pair ....$2.90  Child's Box Calf Boots, $2.00, $2.25 per pair and ... .$2.50  Child's.Dongola Boots,, sies 3 to 7,'sper pair $1.00  Soft Sole Boots, per pair '..,-.!"

Melander has taken a dee,) in-  ��������� t9,%est in this proposed road since jrs  inception and Avas anxious to hasten  ��������� its corr-pletion.  ' ,R. Peardon made a Avritten offer  to construct the fence along the road  through   his   property   for   90   cents  , per rod of Avhich .the length would  be G3 rods and to erect a 14 foot gate  Avhich Avould cost $9.00.Coun. Elliott strongly protested . against pay-  . ments ' for fencing where the road  crossed lands, stating that too much,  money had been so expended in the  past. When asked Avhy payment  had been, made on old loans, Avhich  had been'reduced to $3,264.17, arid  taxes collected of the 191 G levy had  heen applied towards the. 1916 advances which had been reduced to $6,-  603.66. The collector estinlateed  that of the tax levy for 1916 'of  $28^000.00 the collections Avould be  $17,000.00. In the discussion of finances' which resulted it was manifest  as on other previous occasions, it  would' be advisable if some different  ' method could be devised of financing  the operations of the school board.  Even if the taxes levied for school  purposes were not paid, the board always expected that their bills should  be promptly paid. It was. felt that  taxes paid in on general revenune account should be applied' toward r.hat  end solely, and that if school taxes  were not paid the school bills should  remain unpaid until they Avere collected. Either that or else the school  board should be empoAvered to levy  and collect money required for the  schools. It Avas suggested, also, that  one body should be elected Avhich  would have .-jurisdiction jointly over  the municipal affairs and over the  management of the schools.  The clerk Avas instructed to request the B .C. E.

Coun. Melander stated that Mr. Peardon was  acting on a promise made.by the late  reeve, Mr. Win. Merryfield. Coun.

KVKIIV   FRUIT  CiltOWHIt  SHOULD  SEND   APPLES  TO  THE  (,'AL-  (JAI5V SHOW  The above is the heading of an article in Market Report No. 13, which  reads as follows: IJ very fruit grower  in British Columbia has something to  gain, by making a display at the Calgary Soil Products Exhibition, Avhich  is to be held in that city under the  direction of the Calgary Vacant l^ots  Garden Club, on October 17_,_18 and  _19th. This slipw, will be thi-mecca  for a large number of Alberta farmers-who will be in attendance to buy  stock at the Live Stock Sales which  are to be held at tho same time,  and as they are more prosperous  than ever they will come from all  parts' of the; province to look over  and to buy the many fine animals  that will be on sale.  This'exhibition will afford British  -Columbia fruit growers an chance to  show these farmers and their city  friends just Avhat Ave can produce in  the apple line, for apples will make  up the principal part of the fruit  display., Advertising of the best  kind, which will be supplemented .by  newspaper copy and other forms of  publicity, will bo the result, and the  farmers will forgot about thoir pre-'  judiccs and will buy British'Columbia apples, much to our material advantage.  The full committee of the Exhibition  met on  Friday night and went  into   many   matters   of   detail   con-  'nected  with  the show.  There Avill be vegetables    of    all1'  kinds on   display,  groAvn  in  Calgary .  and  Alberta  gardens,  while Ave  will  have the only showing of fruit. Many -  district displays  will  be made.  If, behoves every fruitgrower to  do his part. There is nothing to lose  and everything to gain. Tho fruit  committee of the,-show, of which W.  111. McTaggarf is chairman, guarantees the sale of everycbox of apples  and will remit to the grower the pre- ,  vailing market, price of apples in Calgary less tho freight. .If yo'u pack  choice stock, which everyone-knows  you will, your apples- will no doubt '  sell above the market price, and  then you  will  be that much further  ahead and   will  also  have the satis- -  faction   of   knowing   that ^you   have  done your bit in advertising British  Columbia apples to our biggest purchaser, the prairie farmer.  Write to the Market Commissioner  today and tell him that you- will  be  making a  display.  Read last  week's'  report   again.     Let   us'   all   put   our'-  shoulder to,the Avheel and-make the  display  of  British   Columbia  apples  surpass   anything   of   the 'kind   that  has ever been shown on the prairies.

The character of construction and  efficacy of a canal or ditch built by  the Dewdney Dyking Commissioners  was a question in suit in the Supreme  Court in Vancouver this Aveek before  Justice Morrison at Vancouver by  Mrs. Ellen M. Morrison Avho is seeking not only damages fro rnthe commissioners, but an injunction restrain  ing the commissioners flrom continuing to operate the! ditch in such a  way as'to be a nuisance and a damage to her property, part of which  she claims has been Avashed aAvay.  Mrs. Morrison"s contention is that  prior to the year 1911 water flowed  in a natural navigable lake and river  along the Avesterly front of Jier land  and iu a southerly direction to the  Fraser rvier and that in that year  the cramissioncrs built a dura at-.d a  canal and brought on her 'iaml large  qr.c.nr-.ties of water without providing a proper outlet..  The defendants deny any negligence in the construction of the canal  and urge that by reason of the automatic opening and shutting of the  gates in the dam constructed by the  C. P. R. the Avater in question Aoavs  at a proper level as the volume is  regulated by the waters of the Fraser river.  After hearing the ' evidence the  judge asked the engineers to go into  the matter carefully and make a report to him.  2.  L.  Pur-  2 ,'D.
