The articles were well displayed  showing them to the best advantage.  The exhibits were hard to beat.  All the potato 'exhibits were good  t he potatoes shown being of extra  high quality, clean, smooth shallow-  eyed t ubers.  The baled ha|y was a fine exhibit,  and Mr. John Reid took a well-deserved first prize in this line.  There were some grain Exhibits  from the Matsqui Prairie, and the  sheaf of wheat shown by Mr. Bott-  loff brought forth much favorable  comment.

"HE TALK OF THE DISTRICT  PRINCE WILL .STOP OVER  AT MISSION   TEN   MINUTES  The Prince of Wales will stop over  at Mission "for ton minutes on his  way cast on Monday afternoon: It  is likely he will reach Mission about  M.-MO. A programme is being arranged.  Mr. and Mrs. J. J. Sparrow motored  around Nicomcn Island on Sunday.  Mr. Sparrow is enthusiastic about  this fine driveway and says there is  nothing like it anywhere that' he  knows except it be the marine drive  at Vancouver. ���������- ���������"-  The talk of Abbotsford and Sumas  these days is that, while the fair this  year was a success that next year a-  bout twice the amount of products  will be shown. Now when the fair  is over people are beginning to realize that there were many, things tliat  could have been exhibited but were  not. , Four years is a. long time and  many things arc forgotten in that  time, but now that the fair has come  back the idea is to make it bigger  and  better than ever.  It would be a good idea to have a  competition between Abbotsford-Su-  mas, Matsqui (Gifford j, Aldergrove  and Mission tosee who could produce  the best fair. Say make a, prize of  about $50 or $300 to be collected or  donated for the exhibition containing  (he most points���������judge by quality  not by quantity; and have separate  .'judges in regard to this: For instance  have points,for cattle, for horses, and  other live stock, points for farm pro-  dime of all kinds; children's work  ladies work, fruit .etc., and then to  give these on the quality of the articles shown. There would be something doing to sec which district  would get the prize. Or make the  amount into two prizes, just by wav  of competition. It would be a good  drawing  card.

He was one of  j the largest exhibitors at the fair and  j did a lot to make the fair a success  j it was. It is hoped he will conie back  I next year.

A. BATES,. Editor and Proprietor  ' THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 25, 1919  - m a few weeks another Victory War Loan  is to be placed before the people ot Canada Kn  their consideration and investment and lucre  is no doubt, but that Ihe people will subscribe  as freely as in the past, but with a dilierent object .in view probably. ,v... n,n  We are told thai it is good policy loi the  .country lo carry,, its own loans, but on his-  matter we arc not sufficiently well posted to  pass judgment on the matter; but there is pus  point to look at in this connection, chat U ii  helps out thc country and the interest is goou  our patriotism should lead us to invest: rlaci  the allies not won. the war, we would have had  to be paying all the money we could ahord ana  a little more, and without getting any interest  either It would have been pay day every clay  no matter whether we liked it or not. On the  point of thankfulness for victory tne loan is  sure to bz taken up freely, even if we do not  think so at the present.  ��������� The Prince of Wales .'has. reached thc Pacific  coast and is making for himself the same  great name that he" has done in ��������� Ihe  East by his natural demeanor toward the people and his insistence that all gatherings  should be formal as possible. We'are told that  his friendliness and cordiality very much resembles that of his grandfather, the late king.  He has seen life in the trenches and mixed  with the boys there, making friends with them  and now he is making friends with the home-  folks, all of which will the better fit him for  the position he is to occupy, some day, King of  the British Empire.  All are looking forward to the coming Conservative convention, which is to Vh an open  convention we are told and many wili !,e able .  to give open and full expression to the acts of  the present government. But there will be  nothing new"said, we all know the standing of  the Oliver government so far as tiie majority  of the people of British Columbia are concerned. The Conservatives, naturally are opposed  and'there are a very large number of those  who placed their mark on the ballot for thc  present government that would not again do  so under any circumstances. A convention  will probably enable us to judge whether the  opposition is as strong as we suppose il is.  The question of .a leader is to come up, and  one may be appointed, whether the appointment will be for a house leader during the  present session or a leader of the parly we are  not sufficiently well posted to say, but both  are likely to be discussed.  We see by the=daily papers thai it is likely  Mr. W...T. Bowser will be appointed leader of  the Conservative opposition al the convention  He is the man most entitled to the job, which  will probably not mean much for the present,  except to wisely lead the opposition for another two sessions. Before the next election another convention may be held to decide who  is to lead the opposition in the next election.  Great changes are taking place these days and  ���������some very thoughtful men are of opinion that  for a few years at least the old parties will be  not so prominent in politics as in the past few  years. People are crying for a change and  the man to carry out that change, and a very  great deal depends on the next Dominion election, should it come before the provincial.  But the cry of the people throughout tho  ���������whole country from coast to coast is that it is  'time for a change.' More representative  government is the cry of the common people.  The commission appointed to go into the  question of gratuities to Ihe soldiers are now  busy Our editorial on this question a couple  of weeks ago has met with general approval  iudt-ing by the kindly remarks which , have  been extended to us.-"-The reply from soldiers  is I hat it would make every soldier satisfied  and that would be the object of a graiuily.  The proposition ol' this paper was'that a  dollar ii dav'bo paid all soldiers from the day  of enlistment to the date of discharge, treating  all soldiers afike, no matter what place was  occupied when in uniform.  ��������� The question as to whether the country can  afford il or not is a foolish question to place  in the way., Another one equally foolish ,is  lo say that the government does not want to  o-et rid of the soldier so quickly. The soldier  wants this business over with, the same as he  wanted the war"over wiih,' and the vast majority of the gratuities would be spe-1 in the  Dominion of Canada.  Pleading the country's poverty is poor gratitude to the voluntary soldier who sacrificed so  much for his country., often when he could  least afford it..'  Now is the lime to register your vote, if if  ������������������is not already registered.    When the next election comes along it might be more pleasant  to have a vote than not. lo have one.    ! lurry  before October (ilh.  AN OTITIC!* M POINTS  o  O.  ��������� Here arc *14 points that opponent's "of ihe  League ol" Nations raise against the ratification of the peace treaty: .s-H  1. The Shantung provision is intcrnafiona.1  piracy, bringing dishonor to any nation  parly lo it.  2. Great Liritain is given six votes to Amer  ica's one, without justification in reason.  By entering the league, America would  ���������abandon her traditional policy of noninterference in European- affairs.  The Monroe Doctrine would be subject to  interpretation by the league council, as  asserted by British officials without  contradiction.  The United States would be bound to  maintain armies in Europe to regulate  purely European affairs.  Our constitutional provision that congress shall have power to raise armies  would be violated. ���������      ���������  Doiiif-'Slic questions, such as immigration,  tariff, and coastwise trading,'-will come  within the jurisdiction of the league if  the foreign council so decides.  Insignificant nations, like Liberia, J-Ied-  jaz, would have voting power in the as-  assembly equal with the United States.  9. The United States would be bound to preserve the territorial integrity and political independence of every member ' of  the league, many of them monarchies.  10. By bringing the charge that it involves a  threat of Weir, any nation could require  the United Stales to submit any question to the league for decision.  11. Article 23 requiring free transit and e-  quitable- treatment of commerce could  be construed to forbid protective tariffs?  6:  7.  S.  12.  1 o  i.o.  14.  America, industrially and financially  strong, would become the burden-bearer of the world.  Thc league covenant obligates the -United States to give full and frank information concerning industries adaptable to warlike purposes, thus putting  American .industry at a disadvantage,  since most, important industries are of  such character.  America has nothing to gain and much  to lose by entering the league.  The Prince Presenting Medals in Vancouver.

When that is  done, the voice does not need to be loud, and-  moreover the person at the other end can hear  distinctly.

An exhibit that proved of more  than ordinary interest at the recent  Matsqui Fair, wast he display of thc  Mission' manual training school. In  addition 'to a large number of articles made by the pupils, Mr. O. 11-  lingworth, thc teacher, took with him  six pupils togther with workbenches  and fools, and had the pupils make  a dry feed hopper for poultry during the exhibition hours on Friday  afternoon. The pupils who accom-  ���������panied the instructor were Abbott.  Wilson, Arthur Appleby, Grant Fraser, Alex. Moroe, Marl Sawyer and  l.0arl' Holhiiuiuist. The spectacle of  pupils actually at work caused an unusual amount of interest, and for a  considerable time the exhibit was the  centre of interest.. Pupils "attending  the Matsqui schools, and who at  present do not have the advantage of  this form of practical educatimi  crowded'around the pupils at work  and expressed a desire to have tho  work introduced in the schools. Parents were favorably impressed with,  the products of the pupils and especially with the workmanlike manner  in which the boys handled the various tools and worked out the various  problems. Ladies from the W. 1.  ���������Interviewed Mr. Illingworth and expressed' their pleasure with the exhibit and with such a practical.form  of education, and as a result it is  more than likely the matter will be  YOU THE JUDGE, and LEE THE BAKER  "Blessings on theiTian who makes good ���������  Bread!" is the universal sentiment of our  eustoniers,,who have enjoyed the pure food  bread from this store for years.   ,  HAVE YOU done all your preserving for  this season.

BATES, Editor and Proprietor  FRIDAY, OCTOBER 10, 1919  X'ltOGJtBSS IN CO-OrJSRATIOX  ' The fruit growers meeting in the. Victory  Theatre on Tuesday afternoon can be looked  upon in no other light than that it was a success from all points of view. For years this  paper'has written article after article upon  the value of co-operation, and now that it is  knocking at the door, and gaining admittance  into the business arrangements of the majority of fruit growers, we are proud if in our  humble way we have, helped just a little.  The Fruit and Mercantile for the past season-has.enabled the.growers to harvest their  fruit much'.better, than would have been the  case had it not existed, and if its usefulness  will extend with its expansion the day is1 not  far distant when co-operation will be a reality���������not .something to be talked about and  not put into practice. These are the days of  co-operation and men are co-operating in all  lines of business as never before. All interests should.be united for the purpose of self-  preservation, and greater, progress.  We are not one of those who look upon the  local .organization as contrary to the interests  of the canners. The interests of the canners  and the fruit growers are in many ways i-  dentical. The progress of the one in many  respects means- the prosperity of the other.  The grower, has the fruit, and the canners  business-is to buy that fruit.and prepare, it for  a certain market. It seems to us that it would  be. easier for ,the canners to deal with an organized company in preference to the separate  individuals. .There would be less expense, to  it and more certainty of securing the desired  quantity at-the.-market, price, which will always, be regulated by the, law of supply and  demand. So we consider thorough organization of the.growers and proper business methods mean less overhead expenses to the canners in the securing of their product, consequently, although, a set. price is maintained,  the canned goods -will be put on the market  at a price that should enable them to compete with the product of like goods on the  market.  There is a strong feeling in some quarters  that besides the co-operation among the  . growers, there should also be co-operation  between the growers and the canners. The  one has experience of growing fruit, and the  other has the experience of marketing the  canned.goods. The combined wisdom of the  both should secure for this community or. any  other community, more and better fruit. .The  more prosperous the present growers the more  growers there will be in the business and the  more prosperous the canners,the more of that  money will come back to the district to help  develop. A big pay-roll helps all,, even the  grower. Money has a habit of rolling around.  Let us al) *jwork to catch it in the roll.  THE ROAD TO THE INTERIOR  There is considerable discussion at all the  good roads meetings and board of . trade  throughout the province about which is the  . better road to the interior of the province  from the coast cities, and one body of, men  favors the route over the Hope mountains,  while another set of men, it all depends upon where they may live, are boosting for the  road up the Fraser Canyon, following as  nearly as possible the old Cariboo trail.  This discussion reminds us of a similar one  in this part of Dewdney riding some years  ago when the quest-ion of the Dewdney  Trunk road. through Mission was the topic.  One meeting would be .held and the result  would be ��������� a motion favoring a front road,  then shortly another meeting would be held  boosting for a back road. There appeared  no settled public opinion as to which road the  people really wanted and all the time the  government was waiting lo build a through  road. A through road was eventually built  by way of the red bridge; and now public  opinion is veering around and shortly will  demand the back road, and we shall have  two  through  roads  within   a  few  years.  Both roads are needed; so it is with the  road, to the. In ten or, two roads would fill the  bill better than one, and the tourist traffic  of the future will demand a road over the  Hope mountains and up the Fraser Canyon.  A through road is demanded to connect with  a through road through Alberta, but there  is scenery on both the Hope and Fraser  routes that should not be missed by any  tourist���������go as far as Banff by way of the  Hope mountains and then come back to the  coast through the Fraser Canyon. Many of  the tourists would like to take a different  route each way���������consequently we need both  roads; and this is the stand the. Good Roads  League should take,, and, then it will be a  strong pull and a pull all together with the  ,. prospects of getting something. But so  long as the.energies are-divided.in this mat-  . ter it is not likely .'anything-,will-be accomplished.    We need both roads.  OA'K MORE EFFORT  Far beyond the expectation of the Empire,  and the world, Canada fought and strove and  paid gallantly for-five years. Indeed it may  be doubted if any native Canadian witnessed  the notable effort of ���������the Dominion without  amazement. The true spirit of the people was  not understood.until the guns began to speak  in Belgium.  It rose, month by nionli, to greater, and still  greater heights. The double climax came,in  the autumn of 1918 when the Canadian Corps  marched .from Cambrai to Mons, and when the  nation subscribed $610,000,000    for    Victory  Bonds.  In, the war Canada, found herself. The  name "Canadian" is respected the world over  not only in the, nations allied with the British  Empire in the" defence of liberty, but'in Germany itself.  The fighting is over.   . The great task    of,  dearticulating the organization built by four,  years of ardent effort is almost complete. The  work of maintaining the Army until it is fully  repatriated"! and  of fulfilling completely the  national obligations to the soldiers has added  .much to Canadian War expenditure.  '   For that reason there is instant need of a  new  Victory Loan.      The    patriotic    people  whose ardor and energy brought Canada into  the sunlight are asked to keep the Dominion  there by buying Bonds.    The honor    of    the  nation is involved in the success of the Loan. ���������  The .people who supported the soldiers con-,  stantly while they were in Flanders will not *  fail in one particular to continue that sup- ,  port until the men are re-established in pro- ���������  Stable civilian occupations.  Considering the achievements of this proud  . people, there is reason for the belief that the  success of this latest .Victory- Loan will be instant and overwhelming. But all . citizens  must have a part i nit. It is not a task to be  half-rdone by the whole people, or wholly done  by.half the people. Let every citizen subscribe.  A PARABLE FOR FUTURE GENERATIONS  This may be the story, told��������� to our. great-  great-grandchildren about B. C.:  Back in the early part of the twentieth  century a clever man was premier of this  province. He became premier .when the  credit of the province was sucli that noUmuch  credit could be secured to' borrow money for  Ihe development of this new country. He  devised schemes to fill the treasury of the  province with gold coin; He sold wild lands  and timber that at that time did not appear  to have any value; he interested men to  build another railroad from. the eastern to  the western boundary of the province, and in  the course of a few years other railroads were  built and people from other parts of the world  sat up and took notice ofl British Columbia  and came here many of them investing money  in many undertakings, but-the man whose  vision was short also came with them, and a  following was secured, who kept everlasting-  ingly shouting that the coun try.was. going to  They saw it going  the demnition bow-wows,  an dit was going fast and furious; and they  never forgot to keep telling -everybody they  saw how awful it was to build railways, make  roads where there were none before, but  where they were needed in the, development  of the country; how awful it was to have a  speculator in the country,,.and what an awful  shame it was that he was allowed to live here  al all���������the name 'Bolskie' was not known at  that particular time or they might have compared him, with advantage to the Bolskie.  Then the leader of this party who feared to  look into the future took a trip to other provinces and told- the people at public meetings  in the big cities, and gave interviews co Che  lai'ge papers telling that British Columbia  was broke and tho leaders of the government  were very bad. men, oh yes very bad men���������too  bad altogether. The fair name of the province  and the sins of the governing party became  the by-word on almost every man's lips'from  coast to coast. Yes that bunch of mien who  could not say a good word for their government, not even to strangers did their 'knocking' well. Morning, noon and night they  talked ruination to friend and neighbor, and  after a time they really began to believe it  themselves. Their following increased and'  the leader of the government became so utterly disgusted that he decided to leave the  province of his .birth, for he was a British  Columbia boy, born, bred and educated, and  go to a place nearer the place where men were  fighting for the freedom of men of all nations  There was a great war on in Europe.

There are no windows.  The only opening is a small door at  one end, not moret lian two feet hign  and still less in breadth. Of course  the only way for them to get into  their houses is to crawl .in.  Their dress is as simple as their  houses, ft consists of a largi blanket or cloth which they wrap around,  themselves. Some one has Jiio. rliat  if the Todas ever learn a usf-iul occupation they will have to adopt  some other way of dressing, for at  the present it takes tlieai.all their  time to  hold  their clothes  on.  The day wo went to see, them the  women and children were all sitting  on the grass outside of their huts.  As soon ast hey saw us they said  "Sing". That didn't mean that they  wanted to sing but that they wantod  us to ask them to do so. That word  and "biscuits" were about the only  two words they know. As we could  not speak their language we had to  talk to thsm by motioning with our  hands. 1 wish you could have heard  (heir so-called singing. They didn't  use any words at all but simply  droned away in a very monotonous  discordant fashion for a few minutes,  then suddenly stopped and made us  understand that they wanted some  money for their performance. We  gave them a few cents but that didn't  satisfy them. A little boy with one  of the dirtiest faces I've ever seen,  was standing feist in front of us, Miss  hockhart -fried L', make an older girl  understand that she would give her  some more pennies if she would wash  the little boy's face. First she wont  off and washed her own face but  when she found that was not -what  we wanted, she brought half of a  cocoanut shell with a little wrtor in  it and washed the little fellow's face  with her hand. I tried to get a snap  shot of her while she was doing "it  but failed to do so.  1 forget to say that both men and  women wear their hair long and let  it hang down losely over their shoulders.  There are quite a number of the  Toda people scattered over various  parts of India. Missionaries of the  church missionary society are working among them.  PRE-WAR  DAYS   ARE  QUICKLY RESUMED  Canadians   Are  Apt  to  Forget  That  The Struggle is Not Finished Yet.  It's funny how quickly we slip  beak into thc old grooves of life, even  though jarred out of them by years  of war and wrenched by sad partings.  Isn't it true that in most Canadian  homes life goes en co-day pretty  much as ti did five blank yeara ago,  the stalwart sons come to the breakfast table with the same noisy ^greetings, though there is, perhaps, ��������� a  shade deeper ring to their voices?  Returned from war, the head of ��������� a  family sits in his old accustomed  place at-story time, perhaps bringing  a new kind of prince and knight for  the   youngsters.  With the men home life goes on  pretty much as before The harsh, old  realities of war are slipping into tha  misty background. We can never  forget the price in flesh and bood; we  could easiy forget the price in treasure.  WT.cn we hear of plans for the Victory Loan, 1919, we are brought  back with a jerk to the hard fact, that  the cost of Canada's Victory has not  been fully paid, and that the future  lays burdens upon us also.  SOME REAL CO-OPERATION  On Wedensday a bee was held at  the place of Joe Clay for the purpose  of building him a new house, falling  some trees out of the way, making  shakes, building riew fence and fix-  ing ui> after the fire which burned  him out of house and home. The  ladies served one of the best dinners  ever eaten in'the district at the residence of Mr. Tyler for the willing  Workers, for which some of the business men of the town gave supplies.  A good lot of work was done in one  day and Mr. Clay, who is one of the  pioneers of the upper Silverdale district knows now that his neighbors  have an interest in his welfare.  The recent fire also burned Mr.  Rucks barn of hay and some fence,  while the Faulkner place was all wiped out except two out buildings  It might be mentioned that that  Saturday of the fire some neighborly  acts were performed, which makes  for close friendship and neighborly  feeling for all time.

Province  of Quebec, will soon be graced by ;i  low station, more modern and better  stilted to the requirements of the  traffic which has been steadily increasing in. this progressive metropolis of the St. Maurice region. Such  is the announcement of the Canadian  Pacific authorities, and one may rest  assured that their decision Lo replace  tho present structure by auo-'hii  more in harmony with the import-  r.nce that this industrial centre takOL  to-day will not tail to satisfy the  Three Rivers pcpulation. which for  some time has been anxious to see  this company undertake the works  rendered necessary by the rapid development of thc city and surrounding country.  Delayed to some extent by the  European War, which forced it '  to work, in other directions, the  <:-.mpany will now be able to satisfy  the reasonable demands of the pun-  lie at Three Rivers in erecting at  this point a station which will be a  credit to it, and which at the same  time will answer to the needs of the  t.affic.  The new construction will, it goes  without saying, be absolutely up-to-  date and provided with all the conveniences and different services  which one can find in the stations of  larger cities. The architects who  have designed the plans, have adopted the French Chateau style, successfully employed at Quebec for the  Chateau Frcntenac and the Palace  Station, since it harmonizes thoroughly with the character ot tne  population and of the country, and  since it lends itself equally well to  this kind of building, both from the  practical and the aesthetic, pom of  view From the extenoi the gioat  waiting room below is frankly indicated, while the principal entrance  of the station as well as the exit o  ?he trains, have been designEd to  form an ensemble very pleasing to  the eve The interior disposition is  arranged so' that the passenger has  easS accessible on the ground floor  t\\ he services of the Station, com-  lL(nl the ticket offices, news  Ed. toilets, telephones, telegraphs  * well lighted restaurant, pared  com etc Two waiting rooms., one  fo������ adles and the other for men.  cdch cut or the general waiting room  lV<<w^*^*v.v,v'-'  :������������������:���������; ::-.-���������  >.x:i?:|.j-.{;;:.���������:;���������:.���������������������������'���������������������������;���������'���������:������������������'"���������������'><';:.:>:.:3m.r. :y.'>���������������.:;��������� o;:  ���������:���������:-:.

The heating, lighting and plumbing  services will be of the most up-to-  date, arranged and furnished in quality and kind commensurate to the requirements of the  travelling public.  With its population of 22,000 souls,  and its" numerous industries, this  town has an undoubted right to these  improvements wnich will certainly  contribute to the continuation of its  expansion.
