Arising out ol the article wo published respecting the Credit syatom
In the "Prospector" last week, many
of our roadei'H ony that it Is not tho
credit, system that Is bothering them
so much as tlio Mail-Order houses.
We hern give an extract Iron the ij^t-
urday Evening Post of so recent a
date as Jnmiary 27.
"Undoubtedly the mail-order business has grown to largo proportions ol late years. It still seems
"to be growing and to be more profl-
"tablo. It lias no advantage ol
"cheap transportation; so the causes
"of its prontablooena must bo sought
"elsewhere. Tho main cause undouht-
"edly lies In the Inlying large ipinn-
"tlties nnd selling strictly for cash.
"Tho largest retail enterprise In the
"world, we believe, is found In Eng-
"lnnd; and it hnB grown up side by
"aide with the parcel post. We relor
"to the Hoehdnle stores, which buy
"In large quantities through co operation and sell strictly for cash. Wo
"are convinced that the indiscriminate
"credit system which generally char-
"acterlzes the country retail trade
"does InuuensiirenMy more to put
"that trade at a disadvantage in
"competing with mnil-order houses
"than any possible nr probable sys-
"tem ol transportation could do."
We tried last week to show the
people whero they could buy considerable better bv paying cash for their
purchases in tbe city than they could
if they bought on credit. The above
illustration clearly show where the
tradesmen caa better their business
by arranging for a better system of
doing their trade, than that at present In vogue.
We asked our readers last week it
they would let us know If they asked
their merchant to supply them with
a bill of goods and if It wns not
cheaper than thnt to he had on
credit; at present we have had no
response and so must take it lor
granted tbat the various tnerohonts
are doing something to encourage the
cash system; hut, are they doing
Would it be expecting too much to
ask those merchants who make a
rule ol pricing their goods In their
»how windows to mark distinctly
each article with the cash price and
the credit price? If they would do
tbls tho general public, who are backward about entering a store and
pricing goods could sec at a glance
what a thing cost.
The local printing houses have repeatedly turned down advertising offers that are being constantly offered
thom by tho mail-order bouses; they
realise thnt this Is the best moans to
got the attention ol the public in all
districts. So, because this door ia
closed to them they send circulars,
pamphlets or catalogues to the people, ao undermining the public with
generous offers,
With constantly receiving these the
public are well Initiated into existing
prices of the mail-order houses, and,
when they take a stroll down tho
business section ol our city, what
more natural than lor them to make
comparison,. Everyone does this,
you do, nnd we do too, none ol us
ran resist the temptation.
Now then, II a hotter understanding
was to exist between tbe person buying and the merchant with hla goods;
also the difference In price between
the present credit price and A possible cash price n much more profitable
transaction would result to all parties.
There is still another thing that
must not he lost sight of, at present
there are people In debt with a store
and their conscience pricks them;
they become ashamed ot meeting the
merchant for foer of him asking them
tor a payment. They go out of their
way to miss hhn and then with hare-
faced effrontery go into a competitors store and ask for credit. This
is not right, you know that; if you
when you got your wage cheque went
to the first man and said to hltn
"here, I want to pay a little off that
account I have standing" he would
appreciate It, say Thank you, try and
get some more pulled off as soon as
convenient, any little thing you are
wanting Just now" and give it to you
knowing that you were trying to do
the square thing by him.
In some of the stores In town they
make n regular practice of putting. 5
cents on everything they put on their
books, II you take this Into consideration you will see In the course of a
year what surplus amount you give
them when you might as well be buying something ol a luxury or perhaps
taking a holiday In the summer lor
yourself and family Anyway It
would go a long way towards It.
If we could only realize properly
what the cents mean we would he a
lot more willing to help each other-
trie people the tradesmen, and tbe
tradesmen the people.

Victoria,  B. C. February   i st..   1912
Editor of Prospector.
Cranbrook, B. C,
"Government have granted fifteen thousand for new school twenty five

"of equipment for manual training school.    We  have   got   to   thank
"Tom Caven, he's alright and working like a Trooper."

Cheap! Cheaper! Cheapest!
Board of Trade sends large sum of money
out of town.   Why can't the people do likewise ?
The Hoard of Trade have for some
time been preparing a pamphlet descriptive of the City and District. It
Is to he about S" i 7" In sine, printed on Hue art paper, illustrated
throughout and be clothed tu a decorative cover, It will alno contain a
map ol tho district in size 10" x 7".
The local people were asked to figure i a this work but their prices
were too high and the work sent east
to Toronto to be done.
The price given by the Toronto
firm Ib $775.00, the local houses
$1,200.00 the majority of the
Toronto work will be done by girts
while the local houses would have to
employ mrn. The owners and employ! es of both local firms spend all
their money in the city, what do the
Toronto people spend?
There nro lots ot people who will
lift np their hnnds In horror at the
actii n of the executive in sending
this work out ot town.
We endeavor cacti week to foster
honv Industry, every day we are told
to buy our goods at borne, it the
nrieis are a little higher, you should
still patronize your local tradesmen.
And the Roard of Trade executive
for the sake of a tew dollars enUrely
disregard the principle they advocate.
What would happen If the papers ad
vised tho people to send east foi
their goods because they can get a
15 coot article fur 10 cents; the executive of the Hoard of Trade do it,
why can't the people?
Tbe fact of the work going east
will damage the local industries for
years to come. Why? Because the
very people we nre hoping to trade
with—namely the people of the Kootenay Valley, just as hooii as tno
Kootenay Central railway is opened
up—will nav: "what Is the use of
giving our work to the Cranbrook
firms,    tbe Uonrd of   Trade   bav'nt
Agricultural Association
The Annual Mooting ol the above
association will bo held next Wednesday night, February 7th, 1912, in the
new City Hall, nt 8 p. in
The officers for the ensiling year will
be elected nt this meeting.
This AsKoi-intioti it doing a most
important work in demonstrating
the possihilltlis ol the district, and
the management earnestly Invite all
those Interested to make a special
effort to be present.
W. B. Bardgett, Pros.
P. DeVere Hunt. Sec.
confidence la their work, why should
we hnve, we'll sold down east too."
If the executive were short of the
money to havo tt done at home, all
the more reason why they should
have asked the people for their assistance; and yet, what do we learn,
ao one knows anything about it.
Not one tenth part of the people
know such a pamphlet was ever proposed. Why is tbls? Some
part of their money Ib being used,
the city gave $500.00 to help the
Board In their work last year.
We doubt 11 even the city council
would spend such a large sum ol
money on nny public work without
asking the people what tbey thought
about it.
Because the Executive ol tho Hoard
ot Trade see nt to send their work
out ot town BECAUSE. THEY CAN
GET IT CHEAPER, we want to ask:
What reply mutt we give to those
people who usk; "Why can't we send
to T. Eatons, R. Simpson, or Price
Jonea for our goods, we can buy our
goods cheaper, we must wait a little
longer lor them. "tt don't see them,
wo hav'nt the least idea who does
the work, all we know Is that we got
our goods alwaya CHEAPER.
Why did they dn It? The answer Is
eaay to give. Recause they could get
it done cheaper.
Cheaper! cheaper'! cheaper!!! Is
the cry, we want the work done as
cheap as we possibly can. II they
would only stop and consider the responsibility tbat Is attached to the
$300 cheaper, they would realize that
they are paying a direct Insult to
local tradesmen, and the genera) public.
The consequence ol this act ol tbe
Executive hoard la lar reaching.
There are about 5,000 of these pamphlets aent to England and a quantity to the States, and II the executive
know much of the ways of the old
I country, and the United States especially, they know that the lirst thing
the reading public do Is took at tho
imprint. And, lo and behold, they
gaze on the name of Bn eastern firm,
What will they think? the men and
Women we arc desirous of having ns
settlers In the district—the men we
want to come with tholr capital and
their enterprise—the men who are
capable of developing and improving
the soil—they will say to themselves
"Cranhrook must be a place In the
backwoods when they hav'nt a printing office there." No work is sent, out
of tho towns in (he old "ti"':- It Is
given into the hands of the local
printer, and If he oan'1 undertake the
work, he gets It done. No blgeer setback ran lo given to nnv community
than lor its Hoard ol Trade to get
its work done In some other town
BECAUSE It can ho got so much
When such a work wns in its initial
stage. When such „ big sum of money was Involved. When the Hoard of
Trade had not sufficient funds, When
the local printer's price was so much
higher than the Eastern prices:
Why could not the people he taken
into confidence?
Why could not the people be asked
to donate their little?
When did Cranbrook ever reluse to
donate any sum of monoy o time',
lor the wellare of Cranhook.
Was a general canvas taken ol the
How many people wore asked to
carry the cost such a work involves?
Why could nut the local papers he
asked to open up a public siihscrtp
tlon to be devoted to this purpose?
This is n public iiuestlon, one that
vitally effectB not only the reputation
of the local printing houses but each
Individual in the community.

Local Telephone Improvements
The Telephone company were busy
this week installing their new twitch
hoards. This bad to he done owing
to the Increasing number ot subscribers, the old hoards only bad

this will give ample room lor present

least. In fact, In 1909, when the formation of an Agricultural Association was decided upon, many wIhc-
acros shoolt their heads and looked
upon the scheme as doomed to failure from the start; yet this year, the
third successful Fair was held, when

Being In close proximity to th<-
Rockies, and several of the highest

during ihe summer months, with the
result that, however hot the days

pleasant, and the conditions are ideal
for the growth of hardy fruits, grains
nnd vegetables, but prevent the successful cultivation ol tho more tender
The cold air currents, however, run
in certain defined cnnuels, nnd experience has shown in other districts
that, ns more Innd is brought under
cultivation, more of the sun's heat
will be absorbed during the day, and

In this article it is impossible to
(rive more thnn a rough outline of
the progress and possibilities of the
Cranbrook district. Situated as it
is, in a busy lumbering and mining
district, nnd adjoining the trreat coal
mines of the Fernie district, it has
one of tbe,finest markets in the Province close at hand, and would re-,
quire thousands of acres in addition
to whnt are already under cultivation to supply these markets alone.
Butter and et-^v are imported by the
carload both by Cranbrook and Pernio merchants, the former retailing
at from 80 cents to IS cents per lb.,
and the latter from lb cents to 3(1
cents ->er doMD, according to the
season. Although large quantities
of beef and pork are raised locally,
this only forms a very small proportion  of   the  nuantity   ronsumed.    the
balance having to be imported from
the Prairie provinces.

Marquis Wheat
(lly Rhea. R. Saunders, Ph.D.
In view ol the creat interett which
hna been aroiiBed in Marquis wheat,
owlni; to It* phenomenal record ol
aiiccesH in Saskatchewan and to the
tact that the thousand dollar prize
recently awarded In New York City
wa* won by this variety grown on
the farm ol Mr. Heafc-er Wheeler at
Roathern, Sask., It seeiiw deBlrahle
to Rive a few partlculara in regard
to the origin ol thia wheat.
Thia Variety I* one ol a large number ol wheat* produced at the Central Kxperlmental Farm at Ottawa
by crossing Red Fife wltli various
Imported wheats of very early ripen
Ing habit. The early maturing parent ol the Marquis was Hard Red
Calcutta, obtained, as its name Indicates, from India. Marquis waa ia«o-
lated hy the Dominion Oerenllst by
selection in the year 1903. Alter be-
ine grown for three years at Ottawa
baking testa were made from the
crop ot 1MB. These . tests showed
that Marqilla standa In the first 'r„nk
lor baking strength nnd, as Its earll-
ness had already been demonstrated,
it was sent at once to the Experimental Farm at Indian Head lor Wat under piniric conditions. Although on ac
count ol the prevalence ol rust the
season ol 1007 waa very unfavorable
this wheat headed the Hat ot varieties In the plots, giving a yield ol 32
bushels [ter acre while Red Fife gave
only 12. In somewhat larger testa In
the field the results were equally encouraging, the Marquis giving nearly
the farmers generally, as soon as
be produced. The regular distribution of this variety was commenced
In the spring ol 1909, 100 samples being sent out. The total quantity ol
send available was very small.
Thia variety haa succeeded remarkably well In Hnskatcbewnn ever since
its Introduction and has also made
nn excellent record In some parts of
Manitoba and Alberta. Among tbe
more noteworthy yields may b* mentioned a tour acre Held at Brandon,
which In the year 1909 gave over 200
bushels, and a Held ol about live
acre* at Indian Head which, In the
year 1910, yielded at the rate ol 53
bUBhels per acre. For northern Saskatchewan Marquis wheat Is certainly the best variety known. Some re-
markable yields have been obtained
there, and the average quality ol the
grain produced ban been higher than
any othor »ort.
The main points In favor ol Marquis are Its enrllneas In ripening, Its
remarkable productiveness, Its strength ot Btraw. the fine appearance of
the threshed gram, its heavy weight
per bushel and the excellent color
and bnklns strength of the flour produced from It. linking testa made at
Ottawa and elsewhere on several occasions, ami the high position ol
Marquia aa a bread-making wheat
hns been clearly demonstrated.
Thla variety Is naturally attracting
much attention In tbe eajtern provinces, hut it must not h¥ supposed
that it will be equally valuable in
all climates. It is only In the districts above referred tn„».hnt ,lt haa
shown itscll    superior to all   other
lllenlily Valley, Is llm name ol tb»l
MOMOn Ul the valley ol the Mnyl*
river lying betwein the t'.l'.R. main
linn at Yahk and the Mnh,, boundary
at Klngagiitu, ll, 0., some li.uuo feet
above sen level, the valley, ten mile*
In length, is traversed by the conaec-
Hug blanch linn of the O.I'.R. from
Yahk to KlngsgatO, OVW which daily
trains, tbo Sou Spokane-Portland
fast passenger through trains, and
the local train to ami from Spokane,
Wash., also a last Soo (might, and
local freight trains.
lllenlily Valley has a school, recently opened, a post ofllca has been
granted, and a Hag station, with ex-
teiiBlve sidings aro about to be
constructed by the Canadian PaciHc
lallway company. These are situated
near the centre ol the valley. A
government road parallels the Moyle
river from Yahk to Klngagate,. Five
road bridges span the Moyle in Olen-
lily Valley, tt Is oxpectod that aa
additional government appropriation
will he expended in 1912 In providing
additional roads, necessary for the
agricultural and horticultural development ol the district. A very few
years ago thla valley, It* soli and
climatic conditions, and possibilities
were unknown excepting to tbo few
pioneer aettlors—pre-tjiiptors practically all ol them-who, with th*
faith, hope and courage that haa
been at the root of all development
on this continent since tbe days of
Columbus and Hudson, and with no
capital hut tbelr sinews and their
strong determination to "make It
stick" have succeeded in demonstrating that this picturesque valley,
girt by its lorest-clad mountains,
and well watered by the Moyie river
and its tributary creeks, fed by countless springs on bench and hillside;
Is capable ot holding its own with
with any district in Bast Kootenay
both as regards tbe quality, per acre,
also In the quality ol its produce.
The year 1911 saw the dawning of an
new era In Qlenllly Valley, and with
tbe advent of school, port office new
then- is every indication that the new
era will be one ol prosperity.
At a consequence land values have
began to rise, but ns yet, far below
prices asked and being received in
older fruit growing district. There
are some 4,000 to 5,MI> acres ol good
cultivable land In this valley, and
there Is room lor. scores of families
as It has lieen fully demonstrated
tbat a ten acre tract Is amply sultl-
clent area to fully occupy the attention of a practical hard-working farmer and to provide his family with a
generous living. We have mentioned
th* river, creek*, and springs; there
Is also siifllctcnt sub-Irrigation to
most of the land. In general fruit
growing purpose*, recent advances in
the scientific application ol dry farming principles have demonstrated
that surface irrigation Is not essential to success In the growing ol
fruit and vegetables In these mountain districts where the snowfall In
winter and tbe rainfall In spring and
autumn are generally ample tor the
farmer's requirements; but tihe creeks
and springs above mentioned will
provide water for Biirface irrigation
to those wbo feel that it will lie an
insurance agalnat loss In years ol
exceptional drought.
The soil, a* in similar valleys in
British Columbia varies from alight
loam on the bench lands and black
heavy loam along tbe river. The
timber In general Is young and easily
slashed, although there Is evidence
that some twenty years ago the valley waa heavily timbered with large
cedar, pine, Ur and Umarac, which
has heen completely destroyed by forest Hres, leaving over large areas
scarcely a trace ol their ever having
existed. Thi* incidentally makes land
clearing much easier and cheaper than
in any other timber district of B. C.
The climate doea not touch extremes
either in summer or winter, and if
fnr a    few dayt or nights in winter
the thermometer seldom reaching ten
degrees below aero, whlcb is the cold-
roads and bridges, a flag-station, and  est recorded.      The absence of high trlct worthy "of recognition by mere

tho atmosphere render the cold apell*
really enjoyable, while tbey are not
severe enough to Injure any but tha
moat delicate varieties ol fruit tree*.
Uenerally when the anow goes oil in
April the land is ready for the plow.
Regarding the fruit growing and
agricultural possibilities ol lllenlily,
strawberries fetched last season the
top market price and It waa stated hy
merchants who handled tbem that
they wore more satisfactory In slie
nnd flavor than any received Irom the
well known districts farther west, inasmuch ns thoy remained longer fresh
and saleable than tbe others. This
was due not only to the quality ol
the fruit, hut to tbo fact tbat they
were a much shorter time lu transit
than the western fruit. Vegetable*
ol all kinds wore a good crop in 1*11
and potatoes in particular did remarkably well. One point quality In
lavor ol potatoes grown In Olenllly
is tholr line flavor, due probably to
stipornhiindnnce of potash In the soil.
Apple orchards have been planted,
but are not In bearing. Apples,
Plums, pears snl other fruit tree*
arc proving thrifty and are making
good  growth  without  Irrigation.
There are great opportunities in
practical poultry raising, bee-keaping
snd dairying, as the great unsatisfied market in the east is ever increasing and tho prices obtained are much
higher than in eastern Canada,
Olenllly has shipping advantage*
over all the noted fruit growing districts of British Columbia that ar*
farther west In that It is possible to
pick small fruit late in the afternoon
and, by moans ot the fast express
service over tbe Crow line, to have
those fruits on the markets of tbo
Crow's Nest early the lollowlng morning.
Sport I* good for Rod or Oun.
Deer are plentiful, grouse and rabbit
are numerous, bears are not scarce;
and trout are caught In the Moyie of
good fighting weight and in the late
fall char afford good sport.
It ia really surprising tnat hitherto
it has been left solely to the enterprise of a few men who wish m some
cases to have w!v»b and families to
share their hardships , have struggled through every conceivable difficulty in holding down their pre-emptions while striving to demonstrate
to the world that they have here In

One of the greatest blessings ol our
time Is the easy means nl transit ol-
fered to all whose time nnd position

broadening Ihe sphere of his existence, should be taken tho utmost
advantage of, nnd a man who is able to tally appreciate the value ol
acquaintance with countries different
to his own, ia the man who will he

the one who will most benefit his
fellow creatures. Almost everyone
has, at some tlino, been Impressed
wltb the aocial advantages possessed
hy anyone who hns travelled, even If
It be only about his own country,
and who has not felt that longing to
see more of the world than perhapB
his circumstances will allow, who,
when reading of such distant wonders
as tho Pyramids of Kgypt, tbe Ool-
leaeiim nt Rome and the temples ot
India; has not expressed a hope that
someday, he may lie In a position to
see those marvels lor himself and rev

Pour hoctora tackled Tommy Dodd,
They blistered and they bled him;
With squills and anttbllioM pills.
And ipecac they led him,
They filled him up wltb aniseed,
And tried to move his liver;
But all in vain, bis little soul

Are You Mortgaged
Many larmers In thin western
country labor under a serious disadvantage ol having to pay heavy rate*
of Interest on mortgages owing to the
lack ol sufficient capital to start
with. Interest Irom 8 to 12 per cent.
Is too high. The Family Herald and
Weekly Star has taken up the fight
ol the Western farmers In earnest and
Is urging the Government to establish a loan system to assist them.
The Family Herald and Weekly
Star wants the Government to borrow large sums in England at a 'ow
rate and guarantee principal and ln-
lerest, and loan the money, under
proper supervision, to larmers at a
reasonable rate. Never did a paper
take up a more worthy cause, and
The Family Herald and Weekly Htar
deserves the credit of every Westerner. The articles appearing In The
Family Herald and Weekly Htar are
well worth reading. Tbe paper costs
only one dollar per year and Is tbe
best value In tbe newspaper world.
