St. Margaret's  church held a whist drive and dance  in the school Friday, Sept 7, when  they realized $41.20 to be devoted  to the current expenses of the church.  The lady's first prize was a handsome crochet bag and was won by  Miss Alvina Dennison. The booby  prize was a knitting bag made to  resemble a khaki shirt, and this fell  to the lot of Miss Ferguson. Mr. C  Lehman was the lucky winner of the  gentleman's first prize, a gold scarf  pin, and Mr. Hughie Douglas was  consoled by a bottle of sauce.  The candy and cookie stall proved  a success and the rosebuds given by  Mr. Dean and sold by Miss Carrie  .were muoh appreciated. Each was  a thing of beauty with its delicate  coloring and fragrant perfume. Miss  A. Carmichael won the. nightdress  which was raffled during the evening. This was given by Mrs. Jaw������o  and everyone admired the exquisicii,  crochet and needlework.  The ladies wish to thank all who  helped make the evening a success,  especially Messrs 0. Lehman, H. Ry-  ider, T. Riohards and G. Pratt.,  ULTEK SUMAS W. 1.  The Upper Sumas Women's Institute met at the home of Mrs. Mc-  Murphy on Sept. 13th. The following ladies were present: Mesdames  Bartlett, Cameron, Cox, Fadden, Fraser, Hart, McGillivray, McLean, Mc-  Murphy, Michaud, Munroe, Murphy,  Porter, Purvis, Skincr, Wiiison, F.  York and T. York.  It was moved by Mrs. Porter, seconded by Mrs. Cameron that the Institute respond to the appeal of the  Y. W. C. A. at New Westminster by  a shipment of fruit.  Mrs. Porter reported sending 14  pairs of socks and 4 suits of py-.  jamas to Red Cross headquarter.  Two quilts made by the ladies of  Huntingdon were received. Seven  cents were found in the P. O. collecting box.  Mrs. Hart reported sending five  dollars to the Prisoners of War.  Mrs. Fraser York read an interesting paper on "A Trip to Cariboo,  '12 Years Ago."  While refreshments were served a  collection was taken amounting to  $2 for I he Y. M. C. A. and $1.65  for the Prisoners of War.  I?. C. Cantaloupes  ' The past two weeks has seen the  B. C. cauteloupe on the Calgary market. They come from the Okanagan  valley and vary a good deal in size  and varioT.y, but the quality is uniformly tcood. The bulk of the prairie supply comes from Tapponish and  they are very fine specimens. They  are packed in the broken pack style  and are very uniform in size . due to  long experience in the work. This is a  fruit that could stand a big increase  in acreage as our canteloupe comes  after all the others and but for the  Washington competition has a clear  field. They are selling at $3.50, a  crate retailing at 15 cents each or  two for 2 j cents. Many of them arc  coming by express which is a needless  expense as'they woud arrive in good  shape if shipped in mixed cars.  The red fleshed varieties are the  most popular and tlie Honey Dew io  the best seller. There should be  room on the prairies for car lots of  these canteloupes as the li. C. stock  arrives jasi after the berries are over and they are in demand for dessert.

Councillor  Aish' stated     that    he  had   interviewed   Mr.   Wm.   McNeill,  assistant general    manager    of    the  company at    Vancouver.      A    letter  from Mr. McNeill estimated the cost  of the installation of the power lines.  The cost of the necessary transformer  installation,   he  said,   to   provide  power at  2300 volts, irrespective of  the   2300   volt   line  installed,   using  three 25.K. V. A. transformers, would  be $2200.    The cost of the 25 00 volt  pole   line,   including  everything'  except the poles and the digging of the  pole  holes,  using  1-4 inch  stranded  steel wire, would be $138. per mile.  Mr. McNeill then in his letter put up  two  propositions.       The first  was a  route commencing at the intersection  of the O.  P. R. and the Page road,  thence east along the Page road to  the Turner road, south on the Turner road to Harris, along the Harris  road west  to the.C. P. R. and running from there north parallel to C.  P. R; on existing poles to commencement poinf.      There would also be a  branch line of    approximately    fifty  chains along'the Sim road and another branch line to Coun. Aish's home  of approximately 25 chains.    The total cost representing    approximately  seven  miles   of   pole  line  woi\v   "be  $11,860, which includes the cost of  the transformers at $2200.  The second proposition was the  same, with the exception that the  line went west from Turner road a-  long the Fore road in place of the  1.1 arris road. This made approximately six miles of line and the cost  would be $10,480. The additional  cost of running this line with copper  would be in the neighborhood of $250  per mile.  These estimates of cost, Mr. McNeill pointed out, neither cover thc-  cost of the necessary poles nor the  digging of tlie pole holes, which, of  course, will have to be done by someone. About forty poles to the mile  should be figured out. "I am afraid"  wrote Mr. McNeill, "that the initial  cost of either proposition is too expensive and,too extensive at the present time, and I would suggest that  you consider, in view of present war  conditions, Ihe construction, of say,  two miles of,pole line. Of course the  council will have to determine the location of these two miles of pole  line." Mr. McNeill in concluding his  letter expressed a go  into the matter further with the  members of the council.  Mr. McNeill's concern over the cost  of the line failed to impress, the  members cf the council, for. as Reeve  McCallum pointel out, the Western  Canada Power Company entered into  an agreement some time ago to instal  these  lines.    It  was not  up  to the  Discussing some phases'of the agricultural situation in  British  Coluui-.  bia, in an interview given to the press ���������  at Victoria, Mr. Maxwell Smith, chairman, Land Settlement -Board-,- said r  The Land Settlement-and-Develop-,  ment Act, passed'-at the-last-session . .  of. the Legislature,     was-   designed...  with the object of benefitting .ew.exfy  citizen of - the ��������� Province, by facilitating increased agricultural, production;-  The administration of therAct is-,enr  trusted to what- is known. as..the.:Land  Settlement- Boa rd .consisting/- ofi.tli^.

While the loaning of money to'farmers for development purposes ;wiil-  co ntinue to be an important feature  of the Board's work, the-public development and settlement-operations,  provided  Cor in tlie-Act, will-doubt--  less  be  the  most  far-seeing from*-a  financial and educational-  point-   of,.'  view, as there are many areas -of -unr  occupied fertile lands within-the Fro--  vince where the Board may undertake  extensive clearing, draining;- dyking,  irrigation   and   reclamation  schemes  thereby  helping  solve  many  of  the"  lifficulties with-which-the farmer- ;is-  co nfronted.  It should be borne in mind thattho-;  ..Board is not entering the competitive  but rather the co-operative field, 83-  it is the intention that boththe-loan-  ing and development features of the���������  Board's work shall be maiie self-sustaining and conducted on sound business principles.  I am a believer in legitimate and  judicious advertising, of the Province  with its vast natural resources and  opportunities, but our fir3t duty is  to create conditions, that will facilitate the profitable occupation of the  land, making it possible for the'farmer to earn a fair living under congenial circumstances. Then there  will, be :io need to worry about getting people to occupy and cultivate  the soil.  Notwithstanding the - assertion  made in some quarters that "British  Columbia is not an agricultural .country, " 1 have no hesitation in saying  that my knowledge of the. -Province  goes to'confirm the-contrary.opinion,  that we f-O-ssess large agricultural  possibilities, which may be- realized  through a sane and common-sense  administration of a-practical land development policy.  In the Land Settlement and Development Act i believe a good .start has  been made along practical lines, as  the Board is empowered to undertake  important land development work  that should revolutionize the agricultural.status of the Province.  The establishment of demonstration  areas  in  different* parts  of the  .council to consider the cost and the  company was now getting the cream  of their charter without looking after  the lines, such as the one proposed,  where, the revenue would not be so  great.      Councillor Phinney thought  that if a fa4r amount of work on the  proposed line was not done this fall  the matter should be taken up with  the lawyers.    It was suggested that a  public meeting should  be  called  in  the near future when the residents  could  have opportunity  of  listening  to the merits .of the.3ch.eme and expressing their views.    No definite action  was  taken  by  the  council,   but  Couns.  Aish  and  Phinney  will  take  up the matter further. tHB ABBOTSFORD POST, ABBOTSFORD, B, b.  iTTSK  at,".!1 ���������,',*' iubs  Published Kvery Friday by 'Jfoe Peat  t'ublisfluag Company  A weekLy Jouvual devote.ol to Ike Lacti'eslti of Ab^obsford and district  Ady-ertisiing  rates  ma-de .b>aown   on  apyiuiation  Our   Shlbbojetli���������Neither   &>**   uur   ns$4������'   Uue   Ga/VQiixuwmt  J.

The good work ea-i  well be- k'epL up, and the benefit will  be mutual. Those who are striving  fo keep iho rural fairs up to the standards of pre-war days will be eneour-  agel, and the business men of New  Westminster will have borne in upon  them in- a, direct way the need for  resurrecting the Provincial fair as  soon as the requisite aid is forthcoming from the provincial authorities.  It is satisfactory to note that tho  officials of. the provincial fair arc  making use of opportunities afforded to remind the agriculturistsof the  districts, who are also voters, that if  an agricultural fair is to be held, it  must have government support. It  can not be held at a time when there  is a garantee of fair weather, as that  would not serve its purpose as an  agricultural exhibition first and foremost. So there is need for both provincial as well as municipal support.  There'is no doubt about the city stand  ing by the R. A. & I. fair to the limit  of its resorces. But .not'all the risk  should bo borne by the city for what  is of province-wide benefit to agriculture.  ��������� There never did seem to be the  very best of reason why the New  Westminster fair should not be carried on, even during these war times.  It is an institution that all farmers  of the Fraser Valley take an interest  in; it helps the farming community  in their choice of stock when intending to raise the standard; it is a  cheap and excellent method for one  farmer to find out what his neighbor  is doing in the way of better production and more production; it is helpful and encouraging to the new settler and the man who is striving for  higher'ailainments in his own particular line; and it is a social annual  gathering where old friendships are  renewed and new business relations  established.  In these days of more and better  production and higher taxation it certainly would seem that the provincial  government is missing an opportunity of encouraging agriculture in all  its, and endearing itself in  the hearts of the people, by not making provision for the carrying on of  theoldest and most helpful fall fair,  to which the local municipal fairs of  the province have been feeders.  war election any natives .of any of  ���������the entente or neutral countries  who have become naturalized in  Canada.

It  is self-expression, community expression, church expression, trade cx-  prcsion���������but always with a purpose.  Advertising is direction with a destination. It is aim, with a target. It is  a message with someone to receive  it.  Gilford Pinchot, one of the foremost conversationalists of the, United  States, says of that country: "The  clear duty of the nation iS' to- guarantee tho farmers a fair price for  their crops when grown, and a reasonable supply of labor at harvest.  The clear duty of the farmer is to  raise food enough to win this war for  democracy f.gainst Kaiserism." This  applies with equal force in Canada.

The   war   franchise   bill   does  not  exclude from  voting at tho coming  The Influence of Canada  The influence of Canadian patriot--  ism has been far-reaching. The Baltimore Sun has this to say of Canada  ���������that "it is- an honor to live next  door to her." Blood is thicker than  water. Our American cousins "were  quick to grasp the significance ol  Canada's response to the challenge oi  Germany. Our victories were their  victories. When Canada won fame  they cheered with the best of us, and  felt it an honor to live next door to  us. The Baltimore Sun reuects the  close and friendly relations that now  cast between the Republic and the  Dominion:  ���������'Kipling called Canada 'Our Lady  of the Snow,' but the story which  our staff correspondent is telling of  her war lecord shows that when her  pride, her loyalty, and her affections  i\re enlisted she is the Vesuvius of  Nations. Every American ought to  read the narrative of Canadaian sacrifice and Canadian heroism. It is an  epic which Homer might have been  proud fo tell. We confess that,when  we compare this splendid "enthusiasm  this eager devotion, this unquestionable and magnificent courage anl unselfishness with certain manlfestat  ions of American indifference, haif-  hearteduess.and calculating prudence  wc feel a sense of humiliating inferiority.  "Some tool Americans before the  war used to talk about annexing Canada and extending to it the blessings  of Republican government. Unless we  raise ourselves to the spiritual level  of these great-son led people, the besi  thing that could happen to us would  be to get Canada to annex us. But  we hope these letters will thrill our  hearts with admiration, and will stir  us c,to generous emulation. To be a  Canadian must be, for the next gen-  oration at least, equivalent to being  one of the elect of the earth."  Canadians at home must live up to  this record. It is a record which has  not been made by the government or  by Parliament or by the millions of  Canadians who live in comparative  ease and security within their borders remote from the thundering reverberations of the guns. This record and this fame were won on the  fields of battle where sleep the vanguard of Canada's army of national  defence���������the noble youths who for a  perilled heritage \  "In some divine awakening caught,  Set it against all dream and. joy,  Poetry,,says the'Markets Commissioner, is not our specialty, but as it  touches a common  trouble, we give  the following space:  A farmer raised a peck of wheat not.  far from Calgareo;  A  boarder ate  a  loaf  'way  down in old 13.

We should not bo.satisfiedi.with .the  agrk'ul!.uni.I conditions of British Columbia until she is producing her own  consumption of necessary foodstuffs  and has bo mm to export, a sufficient  surplus of what wc can grow ourselves, to purchase the luxuries wo  are compel led to import from other  countries.  While more, or less " paternal, it  must be distinctly understood that  the hand Settlement Board is not a.  benevolent institution. ' Its operat-  tioiui must bo conducted on sound  business principles. It is proposed  ,fo make our demonstration development schemes sufficiently, revenue-  producing to rc-imburso the government for the- expenditure, while at  the same time facilitating settlement  under reasonably advantageous conditions.  The loaning Department must also  be conducted on a self-sustaining basis. Loans arc made on first mortgage securities for agricultural purposes.  We, thus propose to help the farmer to help himself, and the consumer  in the cities should be equally--interested in his success. The transportation companies should "meet--us-halfway in the matter of freight > rates  anl, with the hearty co-operation, of  all concerned, every industry and  class in the Province-should -benefit  in accordance with the progress ��������� and  development of our agricultural--interests.  I have a very keen appreciation of  the difficulties confronting the Board  in these abnormal times, not the least  of which is the question of obtaining  the necessary funds with which to  operate during the present unsettled  state of tlie money market.-  Everything is abnormal. Men say  and do things these days that- fill us  with amazement and it would seem'to  be a good time for a little self examination to discover whether-our own  minds are not a little abnormal. It is  certainly a time when men occupying  responsible positions should practice  the virtues of humility and extreme  caution in order to best .serve the  public interests.  When  thrones are tottering -  and  systems of Government, all -.over the  world are being severely tested is no'  time for arrogance.and, unreasonable  demands; and it behooves-the people  saB&sesarasu  to   bo   patient   with   I bo  Vr>  ji^isass^s^s^c^^''-^  mMn.H1������������������iii"a*  USmtia  l������  til''  vanfs  wild are doing  their best  servo them. !
