VVKIR'S   GARAGE   BUYS  HARGITTS   LEASE  When the Abbotsford Garage and  .Machine-Shop sold out their business by auction ' recently it was  thought that no other garage would  be started in the same building for  some time, but "the Fraser Valley  Ford pioneer agent, came over and  leased the building, and- was about  to start a-branch of his prosperous  Mission City- business here. But  "Joe,'.' who like ^to'buy and sell, has"  sold liis lease of' the building to- Mr.  Weir of Weir's Garage, keeping only  the upper front part of building,  which he-intends to use as a show  room. Mr. Hargitt has a good connection in Abbotsford and the news  that' he was about to open business  "was"hailed'with delight'Dy'-'thB^gerr-  eral public, but- evidently his opposition was not appreciated. However  two garages are enough for the district, and Mr. Weir and Mr. Brown  will have it all their own way for a  time at least.   -    -   -  The'annual me.eing of tho Senior  League of��������� Trail Rangers was hold in  the Parish Hall oh; Thursday evening.

Priest      and the newly  elected officers for the "Square" wIU  meet at a early date to    draw up a  schedule of social and    athletic    a-  musements for the -   winter months.

While driving a team of horses on  the Clayburn road last Saturday,  Mrs': Moret met with a nasty "accident,  when an auto bumped into the rig.,  and knocked the occupants into the  ditch.

The other  occupants of the rig, Mrs. Moret's  two daughters, Annie and Emma,  and Mr. McKay, were not hurt.  Their, -instrumentation was amusingly augmented by a nearby bovine,  which lustily lowed in unison with  the base trombone at fitting intervals.���������News.       Affidavit  please!

Jackson, rector of St. George's  Church,   Vancouver.  .The church was most beautifully  decorated with fruit, vegetables and  flowers, and appropriate music was  vory creditably rendered by the  choir. The congregation was very  large.  In connection with the Harvest  Festival, a social was held in the  Parish Hall on Monday evening, and  was well attended.  SPEAKER  RECALLS  PROPHECY OF 1911  "You will live to see the day when  the Fraser will be lined on both  sides with grain elevators and flour  mills up to the bridge."  That, said Mr. -N. S.

It is an outing-'for father, mother and  all other members of the family.      Fall lairs are educative,  to the exhibitor us well 'as the    visitor,    but  could  be made much  more so  in  many ways.       The  competitive side is one that    has    brought    benefit,  profit and pleasure to many an exhibitor. Tho social  side is excellent in.'inding members    of-  the    community together.    It may be that not all    thc - small  fairs in the Fraser Valley      have    been the    success  that their officers could have wished, but    ther-e are  at the present many things'      working    against  this  success.   ' One of these factors is that of not enough  financial support from  the    government,    which  has  cut the appropriations.       Farming operations of the  very highest standard is required to make the-country  prosperous.       Thc  higher  the  standard  reached  the more life and energy will be displayed' in making  farming pay.'     Exhibition day is a testing day, and if  there were enough in it there    would be bigger and  better  displays.  Another factor that tends to keep the exhibitor  ' away' is the realization that these days farming does  no pay. The fruit is unmarketable, the fine potatoes  are made less valuable by foreign competition. The  same is true with other products. The man on the  land, Instead of being proud of what he can produce,  ��������� wishes he- were not in the business it is so unprofitable. How can he then contribute, as he should to  the success of his fall fair?  . "Farming should be taken out of politics," says  ���������Senator Taylor of New Westminster, and probably  right here is the crux of the whole matter. Politics  is responsible' for many things' in this connection, but  instead of the farmer going into politics to reform  the present state of affairs, he should organize and  make his demands. ' One man says' organization  and another says protect. Let's unite both during  the coming winter and see what effect it will have  on  next year's  business.  When a community elects officers for the agricultural fairs they should use them to make the  fair a success, not abuse them because they do not  do this or do that. ��������� A fault finder is not usually a  large contributor to displays. We often wonder  why men accept office at all in the face of such  dissatisfacton from so- many sources. Their heart  must be wholly in the interests'"of a good exhibition  of products, and decide to do the best they can, with  the possibilities of perhaps having good luck and  better support. No man will make a good president,  unless you come to him with the offer of support.  Swell him up. Mako his chest stick out with that support and the fair will always be a success. A president  is only human and does not give his best under fault  finding  conditions.  Not long ago the father, his armchair, and the  poems he enjoyed in it, were red rags to modernity.  Seeing them, you attacked, or cried: "Progress!"' and  passed on; Now you pause and smile upon their  quaintness.- Tennyson is already returning to power.  The wicked parent is acquiring a halo of benevolence.  Very soon revolutionary young women of the fashionable sort will put away their Oriental divans, and,  leaning their heads against antique antimacassars,  will  read the "Idylls of the King."���������London Times.  The stress that leaders' of thought throughout the  country are laying on the menace of disregard and  violation of the prohibition law is not misplaced.  Prohibition has been written into the Constitution  and enforcement has been written by Congress. It  is the law of the land, and as such demands the support of good citizens'. Disregards of one law makes  for disregard of all law. Lawlessness of any kind  is a challenge to the supremacy of government, which  depends on the maintenance of the supremacy of  law.���������Washington  Post.  There is no doubt in our mind that South Africa  spends more upon officials than it can afford under  present conditions and under those likely to obtain in  the near future: Remember there are only about  400,000 adult white males in all South Africa. Thous  ands of these must be included amongst the unemployed, the poor whites, the sick and the aged, and the  non-producers generally. Deduct from the balance  the public servants of all iknds', and the number of  white'men left to produce, or manage the production of, the wealth of the country, is extraordinarily  small.���������Johannesburg Times.  A vast body of women���������and men, for that matter  ���������ttre just waiting to be caught and labelled by those  who will go and seek them out In their homos and  brighten the monotony of their drab lives. To leave  such a field to the Socialist women preachers is folly;  but unless Conservative women emulate their example  the bulk of these electors will    assuredly be carried  off,into thc enemy's camp. Yet the natural instincts  of women,, unless all the philosophers and observers  are wrong, are towards Conservatism, as long as they  have anything which they feel is worth ' conserving,  and the idea of violent change is abhorrent to them,  especially if the, upshot of such change is doubtful.���������  London Telegraph. '  Men must be at least touched by culture, swayed  by,mortality and dominated by religion if they are to  handle helpfully the weapons which science put in  their hands.

Thc real  worth  of  graduates, now emerging from  the class-rooms to  take their places in life,  depends  upon their learning, much of which most of them understand as yet very little. They know about set tasks,  but they do not know the exaction of a job;      They  have missed association with    man    varieties of the  human race which the boy or girl who has gone from  school to work understand perfectly;      Their trouble  will be in getting on with people as they are.      This  ability is already possessed by most of the non-alumni.    They,  too,  need   broadening,  but of  a  different  sort.

Moreover, the farm group  had no experience of government, just as in tho caso  in the other province of the West, where uneasiness  is showing itself moro and more. Tho result of this  inexperience is that the debt in Ontario has been increased by $150,000,000, in only four years of farmer  government, a record, said someone, which has never  been equalled in the annals of British parliaments. It  is an experience which has thus cost the people of Ontario dear and a lesson to those provinces which have  not yet wished to launch out on a similiar adventure.  ���������Le Canada.

A dearth of women  shoppers at the height of the bargain season is laid to the fact that  New York is without newspapers.  Department store heads and shoppers, when interviewed, confirmed  the fact that shopping is decreasing each day the city goes' without  its  morning and evening papers.  A visit to the larger department  stores found them deserted in comparison to their usual rush. It does  not require the strategy of an aisle  mariner to negotiate the paths  through New York's great stores  these days.  Direct Cause of Slump  "The slump in shopping is caused by our inability to advertise in  the newspapers," asserted the executive of one of the/largest departmen  tal stores. "The first day oi tha  strike business was not so bad; the  impetus of the previous day's advertising carried us over.  "The second day it was^ worse. Today it is awful. Tomorrow and each  succeeding day we can not advertise it will be even more noticeable."  Clerks in the stores aro ready and  anxious to serve customers:���������to  break the monotony of idleness.  "We're like a lot of ornaments,"  said one saleswoman, who had notlu  ing to do but chew gum. "Usually  we have a guard around to keep  anxious and impatient customers  from mobbing us for service���������but  not so now. Don't tell me this  newspaper strike will last long.

Box 94  ��������� Time is Wasted  PRINCE ALBERT, Sask., Sept.  24.���������The Mackenzie King government was subjected to further crit-  icism  by Rt.  Hon.  Arthur Meighen;  - leader of the Conservative party, in  a speech here on Saturday night. Mr.  Meighen declared it was the privilege  of the opposition to criticise tlie gov-  - eminent rather than to lay down  any constructive policy, and the proceeded to deal with the government's  ' "twenty months of casual procrastin-  - ation and capacity to get anywhere."  He also"attacked the ��������� western press  for its attitude toward the'1 Conservative party.  For what he called tho    "present  masterly inactivity    of the C. N.  R.  ��������� toward branch lines," Mr. Meighen  declared the sole responsibility rested -upon the    prime    minister    and  ��������� his cabinet. Mr. Meighen disclaimed any connection with the action of  the Senate with giving the branch  lines legislation the six months'  hoist. It was well known in Ottawa  Mr. Meighen said, that the government did not want thfs branch lines  constructed and had adopted the  three-year programme of construction, instead of one year, well knowing what tho result would be.  The Conservative leader continued  his charges against the government  of not living up to its pre-election  pledges, including increased cash  gratuities to returned soldiers. The  Franco-Canadian .treaty he describe  ed as the most "disastrous commercial engagement" ever entered into  by this coutry.  The present royal grain inquiry  commission was doing lots of "toddling" but little else, he said, and  he would not be surprised to hear  ���������next that it proposed to visit Australia.  The speaker concluded a two  hours' address by affirming his belief that the country must return to  the two old political parties. It was  impossible for government to be  carried on under the present system  of groups.  The weather this week has been  cool up to Friday, with but little  sunshine. Today (Friday) it looks  wintry and about an inch of snow  has' fallen. \    '  Tho fruit and vegetable trade has  been fair at both country and city  points.

On her last eastward voyage,  the "Enapress of Canada" made the run from Yokohama to Vancouver in 8 days, 10 hours and 55  minutes, nearly eight hours less  than the previous  record which was established in 1914, and held since  by the "Empress of Russia," a sister ship. The average speed of the "Canada" on her record trip was  2Q.6  knots  per hour.  As with all Canadian Pacific liners the speed attained was no more than was compatible with safety  in the opinion of the Commander of the vessel, and  comfort for the passengers.  The "Empress of Canada" with a gross tonnage of  22,000 tons has accommodation for 1.766 passengers  @f all classes and a crew of 547.   Of ner cargo space  QUEEN  OF TMEr PACIFIC '  a large portion has been fitted for the carriage of  silk and refrigerated cargo.  The first class accommodation is indeed of the  premiere classe, including luxurious suites with private bathrooms in addition to the single, double and  family rooms. The staterooms are of the most modern type, a telephone system between all rooms and  offices affording an additional attraction to travellers.  There is even a well appointed swimming pool on  board with a gymnasium adjoining. The large lounge  provides ample room for concerts and the moving pictures which are a special feature of the Canadian Pacific service. It was remembered when designing  tho interior of the Empress of Canada that she wa������  for semi-tropical service and the rooms are large and  airy, and the last word in marine architecture.  Captain Hailey, R.N.R., the ship's Captain is well  known on both the Atlantic and Pacific, having joined  the Canadian Pacific as junior officer on the "Empress of Japan" in 1900, and he is the recipient of  many congratulatory messages on his distinction as  Commander of the fastest and best appointed ship,  on the Pacific.  -i-IIByt'l,1 l  fir !������������*)���������) V*"  **  t\ i-������ J  jw 'THE ABBOTSFORD POST  FKASK.lt   VALLEY    LOCALS  uare Service  Alwavs prompt, polite service at White's Butcher Shop,  such attention naturally gowiih a.u mi-to-date Oold olor-  age service as we give.

WOULD CHANGE THE  COURSE OF ROAD TO  AVOID   STEEP   HILL  LANGLEY FORT, Sept. 2'4.���������An  agitation has been started by residents' of Langley Fort to have the  course of the River Road diverted  at tlie east end of the town so as to  eliminate the excessive grade a-  round the site of the old Hudson's'  Bay fort. This particular stretch of  road, in addition to having a bad  grade, is also practically impassable  during the rainy weather on account of the sandy formation of the  surface. Even during the summer  months it is not in the best of condition and the majority of the residents feel that the only solution of  the difficulty is to put in an entirely new road at the foot of the  bluff, running parallel to the C. N.  R. tracks.  It is understood that the road at  one time did follow this route,  which was afterwards expropriated  by thc railway company for its  right-of-way, leaving only the present course. This has been used for  a number of years, until now with  the increase in traffic, it Is felt that  the bad hill should be done away  with and a new road built. There  is sufficient room between the  tracks and the foot of the bluff"for  the proposed road, it is stated, so  that there appears to bo no reason  why it should not be constructed.  The matter is being taken up with  the Langley Board of Trade, while  tho municipal council will he Importuned to give the matter its consideration. Tf the plan is adopted, the  expense, it is expected, .will be very  slight, and the road would then connect up with the present one at the  point where the latter is crossed by  the railway. Supporters of the  scheme claim that this would be  much more satisfactory to all parties concerned.  PACIFIC HIGHWAY IN  WASHINGTON   FINISHED  OLYMPIA, Wash.. Sept. 24.���������The  Pacific Highway paving, from the  state line on the south to Vancouver, B.C., on the north was' completed  today and will be open for traffic in  about a month.

With the opening of the road,  there will be a paved thoroughfare  from the Mexican line well into  Canada, with .the exception of some  miles of unpaved road in Northern  California.
