which gives aa average ol as. 1.1

Road conditions were bad, owing
to the immense rainfall In every part
- nl the country. Many parts ol the
country, especially Manitoba, were
turned into swiimps and quagmires;
this reduced the.daily average considerably.
In addition to the 3MKI miles, 700
were covered under other than the
car's own power, owing to the absence nl trail or road; this applies
particularly to New Ontario. As lar
as North Hay nn shipping had tn be
undertaken, although this waa the

At first It was not difficult to keep

this was reduced to us low as sixty

made in Albertn— lur, mile*, between
Maple ('reek and [.ethliriitge; the

wretched state of the gumbo roads,

The cost ol crossing from llulifux
to Vancouver averaged, ahnut 13.!in n
day per person. The expenses uf the.
car were about $!i.(in per dny, exclusive of repuirs. On two occasions
the.trip was delayed owing to.injury
to the car on bail grades, the driv-
ing-shaft having heen t\\ iste.l.
The gumbo roads of Manitoba were
in such bad condition that the drivers went on strike in Winnipeg, causing a three days' delay. Owing to
the absence of roads many detours
had to be made, amounting tn 600
miles altogether of which .100 were
in Ontario and 'ino in llritish Columbia.
The enthusiasm for the Canadinn
Highway all along the road was
marked. Towns and cities did their
best to welcome thc pathfinder and
besides presenting pennants of their

Spendid Work  Done by Cranbrook Citizens in
Gharge of the Display—Hon. Price Ellison
"Commandeer's" Bulk of Exhibits for
Big Chicago Land Fair
(Special cnrreHpiuideiiie).
The very   trifling expenditure made rival.    Let no one imagine the wnrki distance he rendered in every depart-
by tlie city,   the board of trade and
the Agricultural association   in sending tne exhibit* to the Dry Farming
Congress at Lethbridge wus the best
investment in the advertising line
ever undertaken in the district. As
tbe Lethbridge Herald said the other
day "Cranbrook did itsell proud."
It scored a bit ol a record though
not competing against tbe other
districts owing to the laet that the
Kast Kootenay building was not
ready in time. It was fortunate fur
us that the local lumbermen provided the wherewithal for the erection ol tbe structure where the mineral, lumber and part ol the rruit,
grain and vegetable exhibits were
shown. Had they nnt done sn we

all the lollowlng day, .Sunday, so as
to be ready Ior the opening nn Monday morning. It was accomplished
ih a thoroughly satisfactory manner
by Harold Darling, DeVere Hunt,
Thomas Doris, Mr It. F. Davis, the
secretary of tne Agricultural association, and the writer. Two carpenter* assisted, one nl them, Ole hy

strength and .executive ability. It
was pleasant to see tbe oTlctals of
the Cranbrook board of trade wheeling an iron-clad baggage truck laden
with chunks of St. Eugrne ore weigh-,

came to lilt them) as it they weighed ten. They sweated did those

by Sandy Cameron, ol the Cosmopolitan hotel. Thi* very excellent piece

One ol Ihem suid to s..mc companions, "That's a big grizzly bear."
Another said in reply, "Tisn't,

the mailer.
In tlie hearth burned a big, genial

building was very artistically screened oft a* space where visitors ol
sufficient worth and eminence could

As thc work went on the Had conviction began to grow upon one that
Cranbrook does not make half as big
a mark on the map ut Canada us
certain ot our citizens, wno are
wholly asleep and mentally half
dead,  would  fain have us believe.
"Where is this Cranbrook? Isn't
Kast Kootenay in Washington?**
Sneh remarks were heard u thousand times over, just, because we
have not the courage \u spend a few
dollars in advertising our city ami
district as do. other places. \ant
year Lethbridge ran her civic taxation up to twenty-toin mills with
tlie result that inside twelve months
they have a city that is a positive
pleasure to the eye and which hy its
perfection and beauty of arrangement
advertises itself.       *
Here in ('ranbrook, if anyone dare
to suggest an improvement that
tends to increase the taxes hy tlw
tenth part of a mill u yowl goes up
hum some one of the aldermen or
from some taxpayer. thut the
UlttiAT GOp KCONOMY is being
blasphemed against in- tlte holy
places. And so we muddle along
until we shall hud ourselves muddled
ami fuddled into the sleep nf civic
death induced by the gentle motion
ot the backwater we appear hound
for. We are all ready enough to
tell each other what a splendid city
and district we have and prate about
tbe extent of our resources, but
mighty few of us have the pluck to
back our opinion to the extent nl a
solitary dollar and it is the very
men who can best afford to help who
are steadily and persistently acting
us the brakes on the wheel of Cranbrook's reasonable advancement.
Some of them, indeed, pose (and
glory in the pose) of being perpetual
knockrrs of their own city and district. The moral of it all Is: If we
want to do things; if we want to
take the place in thc social scale
that fairly belongs to us, we must
make some sacrifices. We cannot
have omelettes without breaking
eggs. It we want progress we must
pay the price.

There arc many ways ol winning

the sacred lues of reverence for our

Our last election with much in it to
stir thc loyalty of others ihuu the
ultra loyalists was happily compara-1
lively free from imputations uf dis-
loyalty. I do not recall that Mr.
Horden churged it. Certainly the
most telling strictures struck ut the
disturbing effect of reciprocity on
our intcrprovinciul trade una imper-,
iulisui. '1'rue the llug was waved.
Hritish connection was said to be
menaced, and much was made of
I ucfe Sum's fell designs upon us.
Perhaps this lust may not be ull an
evil; he will beur watching. Moreover we are a young fulk who will
peetlily outgrow main crudities. Lett
us hope so for it is displeasing tu
heat us we huve heard here iu Canada at election time, charges of disloyalty protests of enduring love for
tlie uld llag and of a readiness lo die
for British connection, shouted on
the stump, printed in tlie press, and
spoken from the pulpit-
It appears to he peculiar to Canada. Nothing just like it is prevalent in the bad taste thnt prevails at
{election time in the Cm ted States,
i In Kngland it does not enter men's
minds to impute disloyalty. Certain
sentiments ure grafted inwardly in
our hearts and we do not readily
paradc them.

Whence comes this readiness to
cast doubt on the patriotism ol
political opponent to fear for British
'connection and to mistrust our big
1 neighbor to the south? It is no doubt
a legacy from the loyalists When
Washington wrested terms which
made tbe 1'nited States an accomplished fact these Tory Loyalists
were a troublesome problem. They
there were mostly men of prominence with
a stake in the country. They had
sided with Britain in the struggle
standing steadfastly for Taw and order as they saw it as against the
torch of revolution. Protection as to
life and property had been pledged
them, but when the British withdrew the plunder proved too tempting. Many of Washington's patriots
were needy men, and hence was made*

beautiful doors   shown hy the   Cran-'

great Laml     Fair at Chicago, where

This in.ist     practical proof ot    ap- .
preciatiou    should be very cordially
recognized both by our city and   tba
board of trade.    It the Hon.     Hr.
Kllison were our representative - la
'shown.     Here, und in ull other   departments, lie, as might he expected,
discharged his duties iu un eminently
characteristic    manner.    The writer
had charge of the minerals. They attracted an enormous amount of attention.     Minerals were shown from
other    places,    even   from   Shasta
County, California, from Nelson   and
so on, but it    wus conceded       that
those   from     the Cranhrook district
were far and away the most varied,
valuable und interesting      on      the
ground.    An old lady, evidently   the
wife of u     rancher, wanted to       see
some radium.   -   "llcin1 us how it is
dug oiiten    the uirtli,"   suid she, "I
guess this is   where I'll see it."     It
wus a pity to disappoint her. A man
enquired, "Now,   where do you     git
yer brass?"     The question hud      a
remote   suggestion   of being acutely
[personal, but he was careful to   say
that he really and truly wanted    to
know whether it wus dug "ottten the

It was W.    V. Ourd who suggested
the Idea of having.a big wide hearth
aud a log lire blazing in it. That notion   was    un   inspiration of genius.
The1 Cranbrook building was the only
place on tbe grounds where there was
a spark of warmth or where a   man
coulh   dare light his   pipe or cigar.
That firmly established the popularity of the building in the fancy      of
the crowds.     On Wednesday
was a thin,    searching wind blowing
at about forty   miles an hour.      At
times it seemed to fairly whistle   oil
tin rough corners nf ones hones. The
result of It was that the ladies simply      thronged     into   the Cranbrook
building to get a breath * of   warm
oxygen Inside their perished    lungs.

baby with a colic in its little inside arrived and commandeered     the

refinement was best exemplified in
the display of the Sacramento Valley. Improvement association. This
organization is created under an act
of the state legislature und is empowered to levy a tax proportionate
to the valuation of every resident in

Old feuds do not readily die und today ulter a century of peace we
watch with mistrust any treaty

are apt to doubt the loyalty of a
public man who professes overmuch
friendship for the American people
and admiration for their plan of government.
It cannot tie denied that the Liber*
als have sintered less in dignity from
this loyalty cry than have the Conservatives. Patriotism is not the
property of any political party.

of these will likely remain undis-

is laughable to reflect that the former from the party that places loy-
Ity in tbe forefront cruelly struck
at British trade It taxed the textiles of Manchester and the wares of
Birmingham and caused much concern in Kngland even it was claimed,
dealing a death blow to British connection. It is not without significance that tbe British preference
placed on the board by these tints
ot doubtful loyalty was a free gift ta
the British merchant gratefully given
for services rendered us by tbe Motherland. Moreover it was opposed by
the Tories as bad business became it

return Is it by words or by deeds

Tlte truth is that these charges of
disloyalty, this flaunting of the flag
election time is unreal and
should cease. Tbe vocabulary of
our politicians will be sufficiently,
venomous without it. An incident in
tbe commons at Westminster which
was much as follows, may serve to
It was when tbe saintly and heroic
Oordon was beset by Moslem fanatics fighting his last unequal fight
for life in beleagured Khartoum.
While tbe world watched and waited
wondering what Britain could do to
save bim, it will be recalled that a
wave of wrath and shame and pity
swept swiftly over all Kngland and
rolled in full flood of blame against
tbe Oladstaoe government. Mr. (Ilad-
stone was not called disloyal. Nobody dreamed of imputing unpatriotic motives. But Lord Randolph
Churchill rose in tbe bouse and in
the course of his speech pointed at
tlie (irand Old Man, Mr. Gladstone,
and said accusingly: "When Pilate
saw that be could prevail nothing he
took water and washed his hands before the multitude, saving, 'I am innocent of the blood of this fut person; see ye to it. and when he had
scourged Jesus he delivered him up
to be crucified."
Many may be averse to bringing
our Knglish Bible into a secular debate, but none will deny tbat Churchill's invective was telling He
hocked people into a perception oi
tbe shameful truth. A tragic mistake bad been made which was and is
an enduring blot on tbe good name

The nationalizing ol the work carried on during the past year from thu

one of the features ol the second-annual convention recently held in Winnipeg, when Toronto was selected as

During the past year Presiilent
Kerr contributed $785(1-81 towards

permitted to continue, and suggested
that hoards of Irade, city councils

of donations being arranged at the
meeting. Boards of trade nre now
eligible for membership on payment
of (in.nil, instead of S1.00 per member as was previously the case. The
former fee was considered too higli.

Deaf Sir:
In the absence nf the Hon. the Minister ol Agriculture, I beg to acknowledge receipt oi yout. letter of
thc 17th instant and lo enclose in
reply thereto, a circular issued by
the department lu contradiction of
the . erroneous newspaper announce
inent respecting the supply ol Iree
stumping powder.
Yours very truly,
Win. .1. Bonavlu,
Department, of Agriculture, Victoria,
Oct. 22, U112.
Vancouver, 11. I'., Oct. 17.—Thc
statement appearing in tlie papers nn
Wednesday regarding tlie supply nl
slumping powder tn settlers in the
province is quite incorrect, stated tlie
deputy minister of agriculture, Mr.
W. E. Scott today.
"Stumping powder is not supplied
free tn members of the fanners' in
stitnle, hut at u reduced price of
live dollars per case at the factory,"
he said. "N'o circular had been sent
nut hy the department nf agriculture
tn that effect. An arrangement in
iiiignrated by the late Captain Tut
low, when minister ot agriculture, is
still in eflect, whereby under agreement between tbe prnvincial government and the powder companies
any member nf a farmers' institute
may secure, Iiy giving his order I.
the secretary nf the Institute ac
cnmpnnied hy the cash, slumping
powder lor land clearing and bona
fide agricultural purposes at tbe reduced price of five dollars per case
at the factory.
"Furthcrmiire, by an arrangement
between the prnvincial government
ami Ibe C.P.R,, only half the regular freight Is charger! nn the Institute powder It will thus be
seen that the fanner who has land
to clear receives a very valuable concession and ni i which I am surely
say is universally appreciated. The
farmer whu nrders une case, pays approximately exactly tbc same ns one
who orders a carload. The depart
ment will also supply a carload and
pay lur the same un Ihe understanding that payments tie reltindeil as
sales are efTected nnd also on the
distinct understanding that no powder be given out to members without cash being paid for same.
"These concessions apply solely lo
rarmers' institutes. Agricultural societies other than fanners' institutes
cannot secure institute powder. Whatever action may he contemplated by
the provincial government towards
the solution nl the settlement nl our
agricultural 'lands, I nm sutisiied
tbat tbe supplying ot free stumping powder has never been entertained."
(I. D. McKay, provincial timber
inspector, reports that alleer due
consideration he has decided to enforce the "Marking Act," and more
especially section 911, which requires
that all persons operating logging
camps must lirst provide themselves
wilh a stamp or stamps. The stamp
or stamps will then have In be
gislerrd, and will conform wilh the
class ol land upon which they are
operating, as per schedule lollowlng:

timber cut Irom this class ol land
must be manutactured In the province, as per part lfl, of the Forest
No. 2 is leashuld timber, and is
subject to the same regulations as
No. 1.
No. 3 is old crown-granted timber,
and these are subject to tub-section
2, section 58, Forest Act, and are exportable under schedules 1 and 2 ol
that section.
No. 4 is crown-granted timber, alter the 7th day ol . April, 1887, and
prior to the 12th day ol March,
1008. These lands are subject to a
royalty nf 50 cents on the thousand,
and are exportable.
No. 5 is crown-granted timber,

This timber must be manutactured in

The president ol the Chinese Republic, Yuan Scbi Kai, recently suppressed the newspaper King-Ban,
which undoubtedly was the oldest
paper In the world. For 1,500 years
it has reported the more important
news not only ol China, but also ol
foreign countries. At a time when
the art ol printing and journalism
was as yet unknown in Europe, the
Chinese Gang-Chung invented
means lor making types Irom lead
and silver, and in the year 100 All.
the paper King-llao was printed, and
has since been Issued regularly until

America represented as good a type
ol a sea boat as any boat afloat today. But In those days there wa*
not the measurement rule there is
today, and under the sixty-year-old
rules shipbuilding science can now|
produce a boat which is a complete
Ireak, and no penalty against such a
freak boat is provided.
"Three times I challenged under
these sixty-year-old rules, and my
experience convinced me that it is a
fruitless task. Nn matter how clever a boat we may build, the tact that
we have to build lair to sail across
the Atlantic, while our Iriends the
Americans have aot, enabled them to
build one just a little bit better than
Now, in yachting there are two
sets ol rules In the world. One Is
the universal rule, which ia recent
years has been adopted by evety
yacht club in the United States, and
which applies to every yacht race la
American waters, whether on the sea
or oa the great lakes.
'The other is tbe international
rule which has beea adopted hy every
yacht club in Europe.
Tlie international rule is, I thidk
the better ol tbe two, hut I have
not come over to America to ask
that they shall accept a challenge
under tbe international   rule.   What
ask them to do is to accept a challenge under their own universal rule.
What Is good enough tor Uncle Sam
and the Stars aad Stripes Is good
enough lor me, and I want to challenge—I am downright to rhaHenge—
them to race under their own universal rule.
"Under the universal rale you have
10 adhere to the rules ol measurement adopted by all the American
yacht clubs. That is what I am prepared to do.
I don't know that I should win,
hut even it I were beaten, I should
feel, when the race was over, that I
had been given a lair sporting chance.
That is the most I want.
Not that I have anything to com-
plaia ol in American sportsmanship,
lor I have never lound better sportsmen, and .hen I Tare over there
they always treated me with the utmost consideration, It lay mistake
was ever made at all, it was always
made in my favour Rut tbe starting pnlnt is that the nld rale Is bad,
nnd that it Is impossible for any
boat built in Kurope tn cross the
Atlantic ocean and win the race un-
iler those conditions.
"I think It was ahnut seventeen
time* that I raced under the old rule
and then I came to the conclusion it
wns a (ruitless game. The American
yacht clubs themselves have reallre.1
this, in adopting the universal rule'
whlrh prohibits aay boat ol the
Shamrock type ol racing at any n-
gatta. We on this side have done
the same thlag hy mating the International rale.
"Ilut II we aad they have both
adopted rules which excludes thei
Ireak boat, why not have the Ameri
ra Cup race under similar conditions.
II I asked lor the race to he under
the International rule they might
well say that they would not accept1
Ihe challenge, but when I ask to be
allowed to challenge uader their, own
rule I do not think they can object.
I would not race 111 thought I was
receiving any favour.
"Four yeara ago I did challenge
under the universal rale, bnt my
challenge was not accepted; yet I
thoroughly believe that every yacht
club la America la pretty solid tor a
rare uader the rules existing la
"It Is not that I   waat to push ia
11 any one else on this side were
ready to put up a challenge, bat It ia
(our yeara now since 1 offered to
rare, and no one else has come along,
so I think it Is my turn to have
another try."

One uf the most striking tributes
to lhc constructive work of the
I.aurier govcrnmeni as contrasted
with Hie luck of initiative shown Iiy
the present administration wns given
this week with the announcement o|
the finding in the now [anions United
.Shoe Machinery Case. Tlw ('ana
iliau law respecting combines, trusts
ami mergers"has, on its llr.st application, proven effective against one
of the tightest monopolies the world
has ever seen, ami one against which
the laws ol Great llritain, I nited
States and  Australia lind proven in-
o fleet ive,
Tliere are many features which
lend signiIleauce and importance to
this case, not the least of which was
the determined opposition made ti\
tbis enormously wealthy trust. It is
the lirst investigation held under the
Combines Investigation Act, which
was introduced hy the Hon. VV. "I..
McKenxie King and enacted by the
I.aurier government iu 1000. This
Act provides for a full investigation
of large combines wherever there is
prima facie ground for believing tliat
such combines exist iu restriction o'
trade or for undue enhancement oi
Tlie United Shoe Machinery Trim.
has lieen before the courts of (ireat
llritain. United Stales and Australia
for some years without much resull.
lu fact the governments of these
countries have passed legislation f«i
tbe people's relief from the methods
adopted hy this great combine, hut
all have proven unsuccessful.
It has remained for this measure of
the I.aurier administration to demon
strate that a means can be found fot
dealing with such eomhiiies through
government Investigation under clr-
ciimstances which cannot lie reached
hy the ordinary courts.
The methods of the United Shot
Machinery company were thoroiighU
sifted during tbe investigation and
have become fairly familiar. Their
system was to acquire the most valuable patents on the essential mach
iuery used in making shoes and then
not to sell this machinerv, but to
lease it to boot and shoe manufacturers under stringent conditions, restricting manufacturers from using
any machinery manufactured oiitsidr
of their shops. Any shoe manufacturer breaking tliese conditions was
practically driven out of business tu
tbe combine which, iu this way, eon
trolled all the hest and most ecoiiom
ical macbiifery and used this to monopolize the business
Naturally a determined light was
made hy the combine to defeat investigation of tbeir methods. II was
the first case under the Combine Investigation Act, and they adopted
everv expedient which tbe most clever counsel could devise to prevent
tbe investigation, even going so far
as to attack the constitutionality of
tlie law itself, nnd trving to prevent the then minister of labor from
appointing a hoard of Investigation
Hon. Mackenzie King fought the
trust at every stage on behalf of tbe
people, nnd eventually the test
as to tbe constitutionality of the
net and its applicability to the
trust Itself »as carried to the privy
council with the result thnt the Hritish taw lords held that tne Canadian
minister of labor had full power to
order an Investigation, and thut tlie
law he had fathered was perfectly
Constitutional, and he was empowered to see that any such Investigation
was satisfactorily conducted, when
the requirement ol the acl as to the
prima facie existence ol an illegal
combine bad heen met
The privy council having given its
decision, tbe investigating committee, composed of Judge I.aurendeau
and .1. C. Walsh, with W. .). White,
K.C, nil of Montreal, got down to
the husiness of investigation and
carrier on their work at all the larger
centres ol the shoe trade. Now after
a most careful enquiry two reports
have been brought in, the majority
report signed by the chairman of the
hoard Judge I.aurendeau and Mr.
•I. ('. Walsh, appointed as the representatives of tbe complainants, Is
againsl the company, and finds tbat
It comes within Ihe remedial clause
prescribed by tbe act, while a minority report Is signed hy Mr. W. .1,
White.    K.P,,   tbe representative   o|
the company. There is little duulit
that as a result of the investigation
tbe trust will be compelled to alter
its methods for tbe benefit of the
public. In fact it is already intimated in the press that the com
puny lias expressed its willingness
to do tbis forthwith.
In presenting tbe measure to par
1 iament in 1U10, tbe then minister of
labor, Hon. W. I.. MacKen/.ie King,
mentioned that there were certain
evils which might be more easily
rectified through judicious publicity
than by legal peualty, and that the
act had been formed with this tiling
in view. Tbe exposures of the company's methods under investigation
show how -vfell the act is devised toward this end.
The greatest problem of the pre
sent day is the increased cost ol
living, and It is generally believed
that one of the most pernicious
causes of the prevailing high prices
is the artificial restraint of trade engineered by combines and monopolies
It is evident that the Canadian Conn
bines Investigation Act is about the
lirst really effect ive legal means yet
devised to bring these combines to
time. In having perfected so useful an instrument the Laurler government has rendered tlie people of Canada one of thp greatest services
which it is pnssihle for any govern
ment to give the people—a service

The formation ol these "Council*'
wa* the result nl the now historic
interchange ol visits between tbe re-
presentatlves ol the Church ol Kng
land and Herman, in the year IfHIR-
IM9, visits thai were unique in this,
Ihat they were Ihe lirst occasions in
the history ol the world on which
the representatives nl every Christian denomination, Protestant and
Catholic alike, united together to
visit their confreres In another country. It was appropriate that their
object Khould have been to promote
the peace and.comity of nations.
No movement has had a greater
Influence than the work ol tne two
councils In helping lorward the growing spirit nl friendliness lhal now
prevails bet.mi llrllaln and Herman!. nnd Irom the lirst II has had
Ihe approval nl tlie head, ol the
governments in both countries.
When aslie.1 whether he believed  In
Canada (or Canadian consumption mi
a large scale, hut it Is entirely without foundation in fact, ll limply
does not exist.
"Tliere are, of course, in both
countries small but noisy parties of
jingoes and a financially powerful
clique of persons wlin arc interested
ln the construction uf llreiulnutights
and armaments. These are the
people with their 'armor-plate
press,' who are principally responsible for the wrong Impressions
that seem to prevail here in Canada
as to the true state nf Anglo-German relations.
"As a matter oi fact, thc great
masses of the people iu hotli Kngland anil (lermany are absolutely
friendly towards each other, and at
tbis very moment the two governments ure engaged in friendly negotiations with a view to coining to a
complete und full understanding witli
each other. The appointment of the
late Ambassudnr, Martin Maiir-t.i'l
Von Mirberstciii, was a proof of
Germany's desire in this regard.
Moreover, a lot of people are beginning tn realize that u war between
llritain antl Germany would not only
be an unthinkable crime, hut a stupendous folly that would spell ruin
even Inr the victor (should cither
country prove such). It is hard Ior
Canada tu realize what such u war
would mean tn Kngland, who would
bear the brunt nf thc burden. It
would throw ns back in the prngress
ol civilization Ior a quarter of a
century at least. It would lie a
blow Irom whicli our industry and
commerce might never recover. Hut
Canada would also suffer directly
through the withdrawal of llrilish
capital (rom Canudlun investments."
"Ilut, Mr. Baker, don't you think
that Germany and Kngluntl are naturally in opposition owing tu tlieir
trade rivalry, and so nn?"
"Ol cnurse I don't. Why. outside
ol India, Germany is Britain's greatest customer, and Britain is Germany's greatest customer. (Inr unit

door lor trade. Only last year we
strained our relations wilh Germany

France, in the storncen dispute, and
yet today, as the direct result of
Germany's action, nol nnly Germans,
but we ourselves, have much belter
trade conditions in Morocco than we
had belore. 1 believe It is not generally known, hut ii is a very important laet, thai nntwithstamling
our 'entente' wilh France our trade
position in the French colonies is
much less advantageous than it is in
Die German colonies. The luct is
llritish and German interests ami
ideals are mutually dependent,
whether in commerce, science, art.
or tbe civilization ol the world; and
even il the ambition of a few llritish
and Canadian 'Ore-eaters' shnuld he
realized, and we should 'lick German)-,' we would simply be killing
the goose that lavs the golden eggs
"Anyway, nothing is more certain
than that the merchants, and hankers, and manufacturers, and all the
productive agencies of Ihe country
want anything rather than a war
with German.. They know that
war and commerce have always been
enemies. And this knowledge has
recently bernme articulate through
Mr. Norman Angell's book, "The
(Ireat Illusion ' His trenchant exposure ol the fallacy that war is
ever profitable has made a prnfnund
impression, and he is one of the
great figures uf Kurope today. His
book has had four or five editions in

A year ago the department of agriculture at Ottawa, through the
brunch of- the dairy and cold storage
commissioner, undertook an investigation of the fruit growing conditions
throughout Canada. The enquiry
was Intrusted to Mr. Wm. II. Bunting, an extensive fruit grower at St.
Catherines, Out., who secured as
much information as possible on the
following points:
1. Tlie possibilities of an extension
of the fruit growing Industry of
Canada in the different localities visited.
2. The tendencies In the matters
of the planting and growing of different kimls of fruit, and with regard to apples, the varieties which
are lieing most extensively planted in
the different districts.
3. The difficulties which are likely
to be encountered in the further development of the fruit growing industry.
4. Methods ot production and orchard management which have been
most successful in the different districts, and the probabilities of overproduction.
The conditions under which
British Columbia, Ontario and Maritime Province fruit is marketed in
the prairie provinces as well as the
character and the effect of American
The enquiry was concluded in due
time and the report has heen printed
for general distribution. It contains
a large amount of detailed information gathered in every province malting it an invaluable guide to persons
who desire to take up fruit growing
as an industry.
In his general conclusions Mr.
Bunting points out that while the
growing of fruit offers ample reward
to the man of energy, patience and
perseverance, there is perhaps no
phase ot agricultural endeavor which
requires to be more closely studied
and in which a wider range of information is more desirable and necessary. The future of the industry he
states, was never brighter than it is
May, the prospects never more attractive nor the field of extensive
effort in all fruit growing provinces
more inviting.

four printed pages and many illustrations is available to a.l who apply

This is Hallowe'en, no called as
being tlw eve nr vigil ol All Hallows,
or festival ol All Saints, which falls
on November 1st. It is associated
in the popular imagination With the
prevalence ol supernatural Influences,
and is clearly a relic ol pagan times..
In the north ol Kngland, Hallowe'en
is known as Nntcrack Night. In
Scotland the ceremonies ol the eve
were formerly regarded In a highly
ceremonious light, and Burn's (Hallowe'en) gives a humorous and richly
imaginative presentiment of the
usual ceremonies as practised in
Scottish rural districts in his day.
The principal object ol curiosity in
consulting the future was tn discover,
who should be the partner In llle.
Popular beliel ascribed to children
born on Hallowe'en the faculty nl
perceiving and holding converse with
supernatural beings. The tttention ol
t'ranbrook youngsters will he devoted
to more material concerns. Store
