Fruit for preserving will be dear
this year.
The housewife who is waiting for
fruit to drop to the point where the
lean pocketbook can talk will be disappointed, for from present appear,
ances that time is not coming in
This was the information given out
by one of the local fruit
dealers this rooming. Tbe reason is
that fruit in this province and thr
coast states this summer is not
more than a two-thirds crop, while
Ihe demand is heavier than ever owing to the greater population east ol
the Rockies.
Lost year strawberries were almost a glut on the market at
times. They sold as low as (1.50
per case wholesale at times, while
the ordinary price was (2.00 per
case wholesale. This year lhe price
will not go lower than (3.00 per
case, while (3.50 will be about the
usual. At tbis rate they will not
retail much lower than two quarts
lor 35 cents, which is a high price
for preserving fruit.
Up till Ihe present, strawberries
have been about the only Iruit on the
local market. Cherries are now he-
coming more plentiful. Shipments
from Washington and Oregon ore being received nearly every day. It il
reported that peaches, plums, apricots and watermelons are now rolling
toward Cranbrook. A whole carload
of nice juicy watermelons is on the
wnv from California.

"One of thc matters which received
some attention trom the convention
when tlie market question was being
discussed was the likely effect ot tlie
new tariff on coal, and it wan generally, conceded tbat, It the tariff is
adopted, Southern Alberta coal
mines will very soon corral tlie Montana market."
.1. O. .Jones, acting president ot
District No. 18, V/M.W. ot A. returned on Saturday evening Iron* Great!
Fall's, where he attended a conven-
tian ot delegates from all the mini
ers' unions in the Western Mtatw and
Western Canada. W-hlle away he visited many Montana coal mines And
it is his opinion that the new tariff
will easily put the Crow's Neit field
in command of the Montana martety
Southern Montana will continue to
got coal from the Wyoming field, but
Alberta will supply tbe north of thn
state. The Montana coal Is very
inferior In quality to tne 'Alberta
product and their mines areifione of

Wm. B, Orr, who until recently
was employed in the capacity of
business manager of the Vancouver
World, which Ik* resigned Co take up
publicity work [or thc C.I'.R. ami a»
interest in the printing business of
McConnells, LW., Vancouver, was iu
the city the lirst or tho week in regard to the new publication "Along
the Imperial Highway," whieh will
be a handsome leather-bound volume
descriptive with beautiful half-tones
and conservative letter press of the
various cities, municipalities mid districts along the route of the C.P.H.
through Canada.
One thousand copies of these books
will be used in the libraries on observation cars, steamboats, ocean
liners, hotels, etc., and the various
boards of trade in the Hritish Isles.
Another fifteen hundred copies is estimated to be, taken by private parties, libraries, etc., and two thousand copies with paper cover will be
sent free to every newspaper within
the empire.
Thc publication will he wholly
without advertising of any nature
whatsoever and all "hot air" will be
eliminated from the letter press. Thn
book will start with Victoria and
go east along the route, each city or
municipality being given in rotation
as it occurs on the C.P.R. Him and
ending with Halifax. This system
of going from east (o west or trom
new to old is quite a diversion ami
should prove of immense value to th-J
west. British Columbia, the banner
province ot the Dominion, will come
first and already from the .places
represented will be given tmrtv
publicity in tbe publication than any
other province in the Dominion, and
as much as the three western prov
inces together. The province of
British Colombia has paid $1100 for
four pages in tlie publication. Othei
places through B.C. to the represented are Victoria, Vancouver, New
Westminster, Port Alberni, Nanaimo,
Chilliwack, Port Coquitlam, Nortb
Vancouver, Port Moody, Port Mann,
Burnaby, South Vancouver, West
Vancouver, Point Grey, Kamloops,
Vernon, Kelowna, Rcvelstoke, .Nelson
and Cranbrook.
While iu the city Mr. Orr was
driven through the surrounding country by Mayor Bowness, P. DeVere
Hunt and Oeo, Hoggarth, and was
much impressed with the future possibilities of the Cranbrook district.
He was especially impressed with St.
Mary's prairie and Ihe land to the
south of the city and believes the
soil here the second best in the
province, and said that it would be
only a matter of time until this
would be one of the best farming sections of the province of British Columbia-
Mr. Orr is a newspaper man with
thirty years experience in all parts
of the world. During the war with
South Africa he served as staff correspondent tor the London Daily
Times. He left Tuesday evening going, to Fernie, and from there will
continue his labors east as far as

"Tlie eity of Nelson has never in
her history been bo prosperous as In
the present day," .said Mr. H. <!.
Neelands, ex-mayor of tlu* inland
metropolis, to u Vancouver reporter:
while at the eoast lasl week.
"The cause ol this unprecedented
activity may be attributed principally to a businesslike revival ol interest in mining, though there are contributing faetors, such as the great
success which is being expert ens**! by
fruit growers of the valley. To even
mention a complete list ot the working mines in the district is a greater"
task than I wish to undertake nt
Ibis time, but there are a few names
which occur to me of moro than
passing interest.
"The old reliable Silver King, the
first mine opened in the Kootenays,
is one ol tln-st, This mine is booming and will be one of the greatest
shippers of the province. The Slocan
Star is also on a safe shipping basis,
and is working full blast.
''In Sheep Creek camp the Queen
mine is making a wonderful showing,
and a splendid vein ot high grade ore
has been opened up on the Kootenay
BeHe- The Vancouver mine, lying
between these two properties, is in u
particularly fortunate position. There
is a great, revival taking place iu
Rossland camp, the South Belt especially having more than justified
the expectations ol those who have
invested iheir money in the development ot its properties. Some interesting developments of magnitude may
be expected in Rossland shortly.
"Tbe near approach of transportation facilities for the Bayonne camp
Is causing a Hurry of activity there,
and there are reports drifting*, int(,
Nelson    of   some very   promising
strikes of tree milling on*. There is
also a persistent report that the
Bayonne mine, which is owned by
Butte capitalists, will shortly resume development on a large scale.
"All Indications point to a record-
breaking fruit crop, and the men engaged In this industry are feeling
jubilant, especially in view of the
tact tbat they have made arrange/
ments with the Dominion Express
company whereby their output can
be delivered to the northwest markets within twenty-four hours after
being loaded at Nelson and near-by
stations. This will mean liigher
prices, and an Insurance against loss
ot fruit in transit."

time in Cranbrook.

The full week's engagement of the

Shortly after his return from England last year, HI. Hon. R. L. Horden was given a great-hapquet at,
Montreal on September 2lst, to celebrate the lust anniversary, of his
election as head ot a Conservative
government. It was madu an unusually Important event. There were six
hundred guests, wilh delegations representing every province of tin* Dominion, practically the whole center of
the Conservative party being presenlj
—the Nationalist Irving not 'being represented, as that, alliance had not
I hen become predominant. In view ot
tills, Mr. Borden followed the English custom of making important announcements at such si'mi-tiUitc affairs. The prime minister gave a
guarded account of what haul taken
place during his visit to England
and what lu* intended to do. Quoting a statement made while leader of
the opposition, so ns to reaffirm it
as prime minister, Mr. Borden said:
"I said it would bo our plain duty

could ascertain if they took proper
action for that purpose, to liti-.l
whether the naval Issues were grave.
Thai, if we were in power we would
find this and get un unvarnished

the mother country and the reports
of Ihe admiralty experts were such
as to demand Immediate action, then
we would appeal to parliament for
immediate effective aid, and if parliament did nol give thai aid that I
would appeal from parliament to the
people of Canada." This statement-
was received wilh tremendous cheering hy the six hundred Conservative

ho regarded the position as so grave
that although lie had not wished to,

Mr. Borden tried, at Toronto, i()
make it appear lhat the Liberal government during its tenure of office did
nothing fur imperial defence. Mr.
Borden did not tell his audience lhat
it was Hie Laurier government which
established imperial preference, o'ie
of the strongest of imperial links, lie
did not tell them that the Liberal
government had scut- Canadian troops

The Laurier government did not

Burden government has stopped all
Canadian naval progress, and proposes to replace it with a g'ft of $35,-

age over the other, but impoverishes
both and enriches the armament
makers, who doubtless sit behind the

In the second of the series of talks
ou the administration of the Conservative party in Brilisli Columbia
during the .past ten years, Mr. 11. C.
Brewster shows how the agricultural
lands of the province have U'Cn disposed lo speculators instead of to
bona lido settlers, the result being
that areas which should he cultivated
are simply held by men who ate animated only with the desire lo sell at
increased values.
Mr. Brewster says: "Nni only in
limber hut in Uu* agricultural
lauds of the province has the admin-
Islrnllon's lack of foresight been
shown. Sir Diehard has pointed
out to many delcgations lhat be
must build railroads, trunk roads,
etc.. Into the various outlying dis-
Iricts, before permitting them to he

he has lefl thc impression with these
delegations that bis was n wise action, as naturally the settler must
have some means of comtnuuicutiortj
and transportation. But he has new
er yet explained how ihe building of
these roods, so heavily subsidized hy
lhe provincial treasury, was to be of
advantage lo the small settler who
wished  lo work the laud.
"By some mysterious process the
speculators seemed to know just
about where these roads would be
built, and proceeded lo secure for
themselves all the arable and desiiv
able land along lhe locations. Until
today we have indirect violation of
lhe spirit of our land act, speculators
holding tremendous areas of good agricultural land which it is Impossible

When Summer
Stops the
Most of us can remember the
school lesson in the law of accumulated motion—momentum.
If you exert a pound of pressure against a man in a swing,
you'll start him moving slowly
" to and fro." If you continue
to exert a pound of pressure
against him every time the swing
makes a trip, you'll soon have
him going so high that he almost
turns the whole circle. If you
stop pushing, the momentum will
die out and the swing come to rest
at" dead centre."
Winning trade follows the same
natural laws.
Keep it Going
by Advertising
Advertisements are the force
behind the swing of public favor.
Each new advertisement increases
the momentum. Finally, the accumulated force of these numerous
impulses swings indifference to
the buying point.
If you stop Advertising, you
lose momentum.
The moral of which It: Don't stop
the business swing in summer. Keep

to them and made sacrifices for their

mention, is Mr. Galbraith, the Indian agent for these parts. I learn
from all sides tbat 'he has not spared;

We wish to give tbe Indian people
all the credit that is coming to

they did something for us, and we
made and still wish to make them a
suitable return. The Dominion government! has generously co-operated
with us, and has furnished the means
of erecting this, one of lhe very first

only for their refinement and education, that this, building was erected.
In addition to this, wc wish to make
the Indians feel the happiness, and

ABROAD itatement—Yet literally true. The aim of man from the
beginning has been to make his building materials as nearly like natural itone ai possible. The great labor required to quarry stone led
him to leek various manufactured substitutes. The only reason he ever
used wood waa that it wai easiest to gat and most convenient to use.
Wood is no longer easy ta get. Like most building material, its cost is increasing at an alarming rate.
The cost of concrete is decreasing.   So, from the standpoint of either service or economy. Concrete is the best building material.
Canada's farmers are using more concrete, in proportion to their numbers,
than the farmers of any other country.   Why ?
Because they are being supplied with
Canada Cement —
a cement of the higheat possible qunlity, which in-
auret the succeii of their concrete work.
The secret of concrete's popularity in Canada lira in
the fact that while we have been advertising the use
of concrete, we hnve nlao been producing, by scien*
tific. methods, a cement ao uniformly high in quality
that the concrete made with it gives tha complete;
satisfaction our advertisements promised.
Concrete would not have been in such universal use
today, had an inferior grade of cement been supplied.

in the nature of fixed capital or reserve in the mind of the mill operator, and therefore requires a view ot
the future und what the future is
apt to bring forth, is very quick tu
respond to an aspect that changes its
future. Already those in close touoty
with the timber situation say that
inquiries for timber investments in
the province are becoming numerous,
and the sale the other day of a large
block of timber is believed to be but
the precursor of a considerable
movement in this natural resource, i
"The limber market bas experienced

two years. This was very natural
following the feverish speculation
during lhe free slaking period which'
ended in 1807, and tho general
will stimulate activity lu the woods,
which continued long after that time.
During lho time ot digesting the
values to which timber hud attained
it was very natural thai the market
should be quiet, and thus give ihe
holder time to look over his purchase, and determine if it were worth
paying] taxes on or not. This speculation created many wealthy men, in
diicrd fraud, and engendered some
bitter feeling. Those who bought
judiciously have nn reason to regret,
and if Ihey ale patient Ihey are!

the difference In freight sunn to be
cut in half at least by the operation
of the Panama Canal, and now the
elimination of duty, the holder oi
timber can view even the immediate
future, wilh considerable satisfaction.
The best opinion among the conservative element, scorns to be that good
timber will be more in demand, with
a tendency for higher prices, rimI for
this demand to be maintained. While
Increased activity is confidently expected a huge speculation is not On
lhe horizon.
"The lumbering situation itself is
not in such a satisfactory position.
The mill cut for the pasl year hns
finally surpassed the logging output.
The shoe is* now ,,n tho other foot So
far as logs are concerned. Hitherto
ihe logger was at the mercy nt tho
milliiinii, and frequently sold his
logs at a hiss hecau.se of a glut. Now
the millman is chasing the logger,
with consequent competition for desirable booms. This winter, and
particularly this spring, because of
the severe weather, the supply ol
logs was all but exhausted and very
poor at that, and the heavy snows
until recently did not permit ot vigorous lugging so as to relieve the
Situation. Prices tor logs, it is expected, will continue firm and high

Wheat has been low and graded poor,
and the farmer has been loath io unload at tho prevailing prices. With

The British museum already possesses many treasures in .this particular line of scriptural history,

Yesterday afternoon lhe keeper of

"Its extraordinary state of preservation," said the keeper yesterday,
"is no doubt due to dry air and the

The new gospels are not (like other previous discoveries on rolls, of
papyrus, but most neatly and artistically transcribed on vellum. Their
date is about the tifth century, and
the nearest parallel to Ihein is to be
found in the. MS. id the Book of
Enoch, iou.nl at Akhma In IKKfi, and
now in Cailo. There is considerable
similarity to them i" the "Magical
Pallets" of the fourth century, specimens of which are now in the British museum, but beyond this micro is
not much lo go upon in estimating
iheir dnlp, though n is certainly not
Inter than the middle of Ihe fifty century.
The MS, which was examined yesterday by our representative was ex-
iremely simple in formation, written
iu single columns of 30 lines each,
punctuated oltbcr by a single point
or just simply a blank space, aud
with no enlarged initials.
The order of the hooks is Matthew,
•lohn, Luke and Mark, and it is very
clear . that several different hands
were employed in the work. St.

is thc neatest work. (If the first
chapter, a, contributor to "The
Times1" states that the passage re-
laling to the troubling of the waters
of Bethcsila, the "new" MS. agrees
with the Vaticanus in giving tho
name as "Belhsaida," differs with it
iu including the words "wailing for
the troubled waler," and agrees
again iu omitting the mention of lhe
Thc most interesting and important addition of all, however, is* the

In* addition to this, there arc many
textual   changes    from the accepted
manuscripts,   and all are highly    interesting to   scholars   of the Bible.

considerations,    says    "The Times"
make the fifth century a more    probable date    for the newly-discovered

A London publisher once determined
to publish at least one book which
should he faultless in the matter of
errata. He had the proofs corrected by his own proofreaders with the
greatest cart* until they had exhausted their skill and patience and assured him that there were no longer any
errors to he eliminated.
Taking the duplicate proofs of the
last revise, he sent them to thi
universities and other larg|Q publishing houses, offering large money
prizes Tor each error discovered. A
1'ow errors only were round, and after
every one had a chance lo detect any
additional errors, tbe plates were
made, the honk wns printed, expensively hound and sold as an absolutely perfect hook and uuiquo in all literature.
Kor a long time this was conceded,
hut six or eight months later its
publication u loiter called the publisher's attention to an error in a
certain line and page. Later o
second was announced, and before the
lirst year had elapsed four or five
errors had been reported.
