PATRONIZE HOME INDUSTRY  The big surprise- in "Queen of  Sheba" playing at the Abbotsford  Theatre on Friday and Saturday, October 6 and 7, is (the chariot race. It  is so exciting that hundreds of  people have asked how it was made.  J. Gordon Edwards, who directed the  filming of the story for William Fox,  answers the question as follows,:  "There is no secret about it. You  can't keep a motion picture set containing 5,000 people and covering 150  acres a secret. We simply built the  arena, put on the races and photographed them ' from every angle we  could think of. Two of the chariots  overturned, giving Jim-1 Murphy, a  driver, the narrowest escape of his  career. Tom Minx, the cowboy star,  did some thrilling, riding for us 'by  way of what he-called - 'whooping it  up,' and Betty Blythe and Nell Crai.;,  driving a chariot apiece, proved that  they were as-skilled as ever I'd seen  in my life. That's about all I can say."  It might be added that it took  weeks of work to arrange for the race  and that thousands of dollars were ex  pended on it.  Mr. and Mrs. C. D. Peel and Miss  Vivian Peele of , New,) Westminster  were entertained at the home of the  Mrs'. Peters of Vancouver attended,  ed the Harvest Home Services in St.  MatthewsTChurch. ;  Mr. and Mrs. Ri    Powell of Sumas  City were the guests of Mr. and Mrs>  T: McMillan on Sunday.  Mrs. J. A.

One Point to Consider
- Commenting on'the proposals of
the Minister of Finance.for the conversion of 1922.Victory Bonds into
new bonds carrying the' same * rate'6t
interest and-maturing-in fiise -or ten
years, as desired, the Monetary Time3
says: ���' ^    ,
"One point which should be borne
in mind by investors in ^considering
the new issue of- Dominion, Government bonds is that the time is rapid-,
producers! the^      ���goyerb.-in-coa.Kll^o the present year, ?to�� t��e t^-
may.'iti any case, or-class    of   easea.
authorize the minister to value such
goods for duty, notwithstanding any
oher-/provisions of this act and the
value* so determined shall be held to
be theffair market value thereof."
Market reports and' the testimony
of producers show that certain vegetables and fruits h^ye been imported
and are now arriving in Canada under
conditions which prejudicially a'ffect
the interests of Canadian producer-,.
We believe that foreign competition,
severe than or more unfair to British
Columbia producers than it is this
year. This province is offered and is
receiving large quantities of forerign
in the prairie market was never' more
products under conditions which injuriously1 affect home producers, and
especially those districts which depend" "afin'oBt^fltir'el'y' totTtheir income
from those commodities.   Where the
ning of the war, the investment mar
k'et has been a buyers'' maiKet interest rates being high and memey scarce
rates being high and money sfcarce;
Looking back to a time several.years
before tlie war, however, 'inyesto'rs
will recall that it was then quite ���{'&
problem to find a reasonably,good in'-i
vestment which would yield-5->4 per
tent, or even 5 per cent. ."   ���
"The opportunities to invest in ten?
year bonds at 5V�� per cent is theier
fore a good one. The loan will unj-
questionably be a success arid' security prices will, judging by prospects^-
be carried to still higher leveifii.."     '
The Minister's' offer is open until
September 30; .-see the official 'advertisement for details.

Have Decided to Exchange Bonds,
Holders of 1922 Victory Bonds
who have decided to exchange their
maturing bonds for new bonds carrying the same rate of interest, under
the proposals of the Ministef'of Finance, which are now being advertised, would do well to surrender their
bonds at once, rather-than delay untiij
September 3 approaches. When the!
bonds were first issued in 1917, the
1922 maturity was a favorite with
small investors, many of whom were
buying bonds for the first time, Consequently, there are many, many
thousands of individual holders and
it would be a great help to the banks
and the Department of Finance, in
carrying through the conversion expeditiously, as well as a convenienc-e
to the holders, themselves, if they
would turn their bonds into the
banks as early- as possible.
One of the. measures adopted by the
Finance Department to bring tho
conversion proposals, which are now
being widely advertised, to the attention of holders of 1922 Victory Bonds
was the mailing to registered holders
of a copy of the.Minister's announcement. Over 100.000 bond holders
were communicated with. Replies
were not called for, as those who wish
to continue their investment are ask-
,ed to surrender their bonds to any
'Branch of any chartered Bank, sig-
nifyingthe maturity of the new
bonds desired and obtaining receipt

National patriotism,���������it is not dead���������has its rise in the  community, and just how powerful national patriotism becomes depends upon the extent of the local patriotism shown  in the communiies. Some are more prosperous and progressive than others,,because they are more patriotic to their home  interests.5'"  , .*No person in a community should practise false economy.  Although, some may do so unthinkingly while others do , so  heedless1 of the interest of others���������self in all things is to them  the most important part of life. They are not only selfish iu  buying but they are selfish in all other business transactions, and even sometimes   in social matters.  In all large communities we find schools and churches,  sop*al advantages, sport and entertainment, besides the local  busiriess interests.  ���������'.'.���������'There is ho community but what has its problems, and one  problem that is common to the individual, community, and nation is that of buying..' The power of buying is limited according to the'amount of money at the disposal of the individual  who is the great integral part of the nation. Some buying is  done through friendship; while much of it is done in a. cold,  hard, selfish business manner, not caring who benefits- there-  bv or who is hurt /  '* In order that a community, or business centre; may prosper  there must be thought put into the purchase of an article, be-  .sides the' consideration of securing the best value for money in-  YegteJcC A few days ago a man was heard to remark that he had  S8iftv$50 to a large departmental store and had not heard of his  .grinds or money/since.���������That was fourteen days after he had  sent ; the money, away. About.the same time another man told  a'friend that he had sent $25 to a mailorder house, and the  articles he had received were in some cases not equal to what  he had expected. And on the. same day California and! Wen-  atchee fruit.were to be seen on   sale in B. C. stores. .' ���������-  Here are some purchases that are worthy of consideration.  Had the man-who at random sent the $50 out of town went'", tp  a locM store and bought his goods he could have had them 'delivered at least the next day.. Had the man with the; "mail order  h'otisfe craze" bought in his own home town he could have s$en  the goods before he'purchased them.  -'" And some day we intend writing a short article behind  that purchase of foreign fruit from the wholesaler. '  Many other samples of purchases might be given where  spiheorfe was injured.  ;::; All things being equal the "Grown in B. C." and "The Made  in B.d" article should be purchased. Why? A.dollar spe/it  in B. -C: carries with it a profit that, goes to make the province  that much more prosperous, the man- that much more able,  to.pay his local taxes to support home institutions; the firm that  iri'ich more able to pay his business taxes to the government;  that much, more able to build and help develop the district. Profits ;kept,at home pass from one to another of a community. Jt  is the live-Wire of B. C, that assists development, the twin-sister  of local prosperity.  A wholesaler who brings in California or Wenatchee fruit  wherj Fraser Valley fruit or fruit in any other part oMhe  province, lies rotting on the ground, is hot a friend to hirn-  self, a. friend of this province, nor a friend of the farmed and.  lruUgrowier; is a citizen of B. C. who is not obeying the rnan-  date buy "Grown in B. C." or "Made in B. C." products. He  is not patriotic to himself, his town or his province. We doubt  very much if he should be allowed to associate with energetic  ambitious citizens who are proud of the fertility of our soil,  and our beautiful climate. How can he admire the natural  beauty that surrounds him?  An individual or a nation may exist without prosperous  communities, but it is a well-known fact that a dead town  or a dead community can seldom "come back." The grpwing,'  prosperous town is the one that attracts new settlers. We  want new settlers in this province and it is up to each individ-;  lial to do his level best to make his town or community just a-  Utile better for his having lived in it. The buyer sends, his  money away and fools himself. We know the temptation is  great, he sees so much of it. But is it right? A certain amount  of profit goes with each dollar's worth of purchase. Is he doing himself justice to permit that profit to leave the community?  What chance has he of educating his children on that profit?  Five, ten or fifteen per cent, profit.on many dollars creates a  surplus that goes to swell the taxes that build our roads and  jrive us good schools. Let us be fair to ourselves at all times,  BUT BEHIND;ALL BUYERS IS A FORCE THAT EACH QNE  OF US HAVE TO. RECKON WITH. We can't do always as  we like, but let us do as we like as often as we can under;, the  circumstances; and above all things we shoufld encourage the  "Grown in B. C." and "Made in B. C." products.

The results were very gratifying both  in sales and iif displays, for in addition to the makers sold by Holdrego  dpalers, fine examples of closed jobs  were displayed, among the cars, some  bearing the proudest names in the  automobile business.  The local weekly papers fell into  line and carried front-page' ncwH  stories of tlie doings of the show;  stories were also used in the weekly  papers of the. surrounding towns and  one I-Joldrcgo store which publishes  a store paper of unusual excellence  played the automobile show most et-  fectively. Catching the spirit of tho  show, they wanted it to succeed.  In addition, a' special sheet^ the  "Holdrege Automobile Booster" was  issued. This was got out in the form  of a seven-column, eight-page newspaper. The front page was given  over to telling of the various features  of the automobile show and automobile gossip of varying interest.  Holdrege   merchants     are   unani-  ' mo'u's'in stating that  'the automobile  show brought in the biggest    week's  volume of business the town had en-  -joyed'since the fall    of 1919 and    a  ' pronounced livening of business conditions has been noticed    ever    since  the show ended.  Over $3,000  was taken in    at th*  door in admission charges- and, with  the concession money, the  Holdrege  Commercial Club    was    more    than  '���������$400 to the good after-all    expenses  had been paid.    Thus the budget was,  riot only untouched, but the individ-  '  ua'l-pledges of the members were les-  " seined by that amount.  In other-words, the    business men  of this little town,    put over a community event that fairly lifted them  out of a slough of despondency, gave  a new feeling of    confidence to    tho  : .people of the county,    a    confidence  --which was expressed by making'th'?  week.of the show ,.vone of the biggest  .,-: weeks in volume ofVusiness the town  ��������� " jias-ever enjoyed.   And all it cost was  *' the team work and effort of the men  - behind the idea.   And this in 'the face  ' "of retrenchment    and talk    of    hard  times.  . It .proved the    truth of mili-  '  tary tacticians who believe'   that at-  ' tack is the,best defense.-'--'  crop to harvest.     ,We lay',no    blame  for this state of affairs    on the shipping end.-   The shippers ��������� have\ done  almost everything possible'ftp secure  a loyal co-operation and-have .failed".  We believe it is impossible tp .'form  a  satisfactory   working  arrangement  between shipper-and jobber.   ': ./After'  all they are    buying    (or should he)  and the shippers arc selling.

We are facing the greatest problem the fruit marketing experts on  both'sides of the line ever had to  face. Canadian fruit growers are  powerless, owing to high tariff to  enter the U.

The B.C. cherries were sold far  below normal at wholesale,    for    tho  : same reason, and now that our plums  prunes, pears and peaches are in full  ; swing, we find that the housewives  have done most of their canning and  used American grown fruit.    In B.C.  . peaches of fine quality are being fed  '��������� to the hogs and from prices now  obtaining pn the prairies it would pay  .��������� the growers to feed most of their  plums and apples to the hogs.

(From   Fraser  Valley% Record")  On Saturday last the Mission soccer team came through with their  second win of the season. Although  it was a trifle damp, the game was  well worth seeing, from' a spectators  point of view. The players are certainly to be commended on the way  they stuck it out through such bad  weather.  While the home team had . the  wind and rain at their backs the first  half, they were only able to notch  one goal, which came from the foot  of Rex Cox, who.was filling a new  position at outside left. However the  local team were determined to keep  their lead, and after the cross over  played a strong defensive game.  The Forwards made effort upon  effort to get another goal. in  which they finally succeeded, this  goal again coming from Rex Cox.  Soon after this, Lsingley made several efforts to score, and finally did so  from a corner. This saw the end of  the scoring and the finish of the  game wa3 more like water polo. The  defence of the home team Is; to be  commended indeed, as they certainly  played a good game right through.  Leonard, the new goalie, had not  much to do, but will probably be  seen in action again before long. Appleby at right half, played well for  a starter, while J. Galliford and D  Lamont are a good pair of Full  Backs, not forgetting C. Galliford  arid E. Fu/ino can always be depended on. The Forwards are good  throughout, but the wing men must  cross the ball to centre a little more,  as their centre forward, Hamilton,  is right there if he gets an   opening.  This is a good start for the  Mission boys, who hope to keep up  the good work, but they need ' the  crowd's support. The team will  journey to Clayburn next Saturday  and will, be selected from the following players: J. Leonard, D. Lamont,  J. Galliford, W. Beaton, C. Galliford,  Wm., Ajteison..

ROD AND GUN  There are several different features in the November issue of Rod  an'd Gun in Canada, which combiuu  io mane it a particularly attractive  number. The well-known writer,  Harry M. Moore, is at his best in  "Sar'Ann," ian interest-gripping 'tale,  and there are other stories that aro  of a high Quality. The article, "Logs,''  descriptive of the logging and lumbering industry and of scenes and incidents in the lives of the brawny  men who labor in it, is one of outstanding quality".' The department,  "Along .the Trap1 Line,", resumes' in  this issue, with Mr. M." U. Bates as  editor, and this should be a guarantee that the department will enjoy  all its old success, and will be of the  same high standard that it has been  in the past. The other departments  are of' their usual excellence. "Guns  and Ammunition" includes splendid  articles by IS. T. Martin and E. T.  Francis, as well as detailed accounts  of the D.K.A. and the O.R.A. matches, and thc other regular features' of  tho magazine are of.similiar quality.

You 'will  never have to    ask that  question,- '"What is  Canadian  litcra-.  turo?"  again   when   you     have  read  Robert Stead's latest and, so T^r, his  greatest   novel,   "Neighbors."  There are few Canadians who are  not familiar with this author's former novels, "The Homesteaders,"  "The Cowpunchers," and "Dennison Grant." v This new book runs  true to the. Stead tradition of a good  story, real humour, pure love and a  real idea���������even some real mystery,  and it has more of the real atmosphere of life in it, than' any other  which has come to us in a long while.  It is true writing, and will, add fresh  laurels to the fame of 'this already  well-beloved author.  "Neighbors" relates how two families of young people, brother and  sister, neighbors, in a little Ontario  town; neighbors, fifteen years on  adjoining homesteads' in the Saskatchewan country, find life and love.  Their stories run smoothly until a  young Englishman settles in the  community and upsets all expectations, including the reader's. But the  host part of "Neighbors" in my mind,,  and what makes it a great book, is  the picture of the people who mako  up that far-scattered "Neighbor-.  hood" of homesteaders, Jake is.the  old villain who finds "locations"' for  the gullible newcomer; the" "Sneez-  its" are a gaunt big-eyed Polak family,, who live in a cave that the precious live-stock may ' have builded  shelter���������and the widow, and *' the  Scotch family���������and the, wedding!  All of that ,is. writing of' the .finest  .type, and places this' Canadian book  in high order among the best literature  of. to-day.  "NEIGHBORS," a happy novel of  the Northwest, by Robert Stead..

The wind and sea drove the first  officer's boat past the sinking vessel, and drifted leeward in spite of  the efforts of the Chinese oarsmen.  The "Monteagle" shifted to leeward,  picking up the 16 Chinaman in the  "Hsin Tien" boat, then took on the  officer's draft, and finally at 11.45  a.m. picked up Mr. Campbell and his  men.

Three of the Caur  adian runners trained for the raco  but the fourth-, who was to run tho  third lap, did not train as he ought to  have done. The result was' that Canada lost. Mr. Priest stated that life  was also a relay-race and many races  "of life were lost during the third lap  which is between the ages of fourteen  and twenty-one. It is easy to form a  .habit and to break it during this period but older people find it hard to  change.  He also spoke of the pathfinders  who made Canada what she is today. All'boys and girls' are pathfinders in this age. They have it within  their power ' to discover the  world of books, and the world of  their own possibilities.  Three''things which help in the  third lap of life are: (1) Friendship,  (2) Fair -play;" (3) Faith.  ' Friendship comes first. It is  essential that we choose the right  kind of company in oyder that good  habits may be formed.  Fair-play must also be consideied  when playing the game of . life, we  should always play fair.  Lastly is Faith. If we have faith  in Him, who created, all, He will help  us in the race of life.

Pointing out that iri Canada there  was always a reflex of conditions in  the United States, Mr. Beatty referred to the fact that four months after the slump in the United- States  the depression was felt in Canada.  "We are four months behind the  United States, therefore, in the return to prosperous conditions.  "One of our greatest assets in  Canada is the beautiful crop" in all  agricultural districts, ano the -crops  this year are unequalled by anything  in Canada's history. That means  money, and money means industrial  expansion and- greater trade development.  "I see nothing that should cause  Canada the slightest apprehension,"  said Mr. Beatty, who, however, suid  it would only be natural that there  would be slight periods of dullness,  but the country was-assured of progress."
