has now before it brighter possibilities fur development than at any
time within the past decade, and now
than ever, ai'e required initiative, luvestigutiou and direction
necessary to due development,

for metals are appreciated and taken
advantage of the mining industry
ii,ay now be placed Upon a basis
which would render its future- assured.
The present opportunity f"r fostering the mining industry makes particularly timely the request of the
Revelstoke District Conservative association that a sep.urate portfolio
ol mines be created in the Dominion
Cabinet. The Borden government has
not been unmindful of mining, and
las paid heed to the representations
of Mr. R. P. Oreen and others well
versed jn the needs ol the industry
when requests on its behall have been
| resented at Ottawa, as is to be seen
in the readiness with which Mr.
Green's suggestions for the encourage
ment of the zinc industry have heen
. lopted;    but it is not possible    to
believe that the minister charged with
the care of the mining industry r,,u
give t.e it the attention which its Im-
I irtance wat rants when he has also
i ■ care of another department ol
the government. A minister of mines
who can cive Ins whole attcntia;:   to   premier and  his policies have
than ordinary Significance.
The Borden government is holding
office at time when history is being
made, ut. a period of stress for tho
BritiBh empire, when more than usual
depends upon the attitude adopted by
the governments of tho great self-
governing Dominions ot the empire.
During this critical period the government has maintained the best traditions of the Uritish race. It has
rendered to the empire loyal and efficient service, and lias enabled Canada In play a worthy part in the
struggle In which the empire is engaged, U has been harassed by nt-
i.icks on the part of those who permit im consideration to deprive them

e ledit fui- having performed its pub-
he duty loyally, honestly and effectively al a time when loyalty, honesty
and      efficiency  were  ,if  special  value,
md the resolution of confidence in
sir Robert Borden and his colleagues, adopted by the Revelstoke
Conservative association will have
the endorsation and approval, not
only of the Conservatives of the constituency, but ot very many who under ordinary circumstances give their
support to Liberal policies and
to Liberal leaders.
Tne conlidencc expressed in the Mc-
' ride government is equally justified.
The government has beeu recently
the object of an attack of a moro
than usually vindictive character,
and insinuations of unworthy and
dishonorable conduct have been freely levelled against, Sir Richard himself hy those who have no scruples as
tu the nature of the weapon witb
,\ liieli they attack a political opponent. The insinuations have been
probed at the premier's own request,
and     Sir Richard's reputation     bus
cen completely vindicated. The hoi-
Miwu'ss -if the campaign against his
government has leen almost simultaneously exposed. Nothing has oc-
- irred to shake the loyalty of the
people of British Columbia to Bir
Richard McBride and his administration, and it is likely to be found,
when next the people express their
\ lews at the poll, that the exl i erne

at the feet of their Ifruit pest inspec-

the past been fur too lenient. There
could be no better testimony to the
elhciency and value of the service being rendered to the fruit industry in
tins province at-the'present time by
riiidi' Inspector Cunningham and hiB
staff. Occasionally the remark iH
heard that these officials arc too drastic in their treatment of the orchards
to which infected fruit is traced.,It is
due to this severity, however, that

Saturday      Chinook : Almost
ery day        is       tag       day
Vancouver,  and every day cilr/ens are
called upon by collectors for this   or
thai   fund,  and everywhere one  turns
a     collection plate is placed under
ime's   nose.     II seems   that   half      the
population is collecting ofl the other
half, or giving to the other half.
Mothers Collect from their s us,
daughters collect Irom their fathers,
and sons turn in and collect from
nn'thers and daughters. Every odd
ontertalnraent is In aid of some charity or other Give! Give! Give! is
the order of the duy.
The tug day is an institution which
can be abused. Very often the man
who is offered a tag on the street
corner buys it, not with a full realisation of the nature of the fund being supported, but rather to avoid
unpleasantness and embarrassment in
passing the fair corners without a
tag disjil tyed Upon his lapel. It does
not strike us as being the proper
thing that Indies should stand all
day on the curb begging alms from
passers-by. Many ol the ladies do so
at great risk to their health, to the
annoyance of their husbands and the
neglect of their children. We are Informed that many of the ladies consent to taking a part in tag days
only under pressure. They say that
"the committee will be offended if
everyone doesn't turn out."
There is not the slightest doubt
that in some of the patriotic concerts
L-iven the wur funds have been bled
for the benefit ot the iierformers and
the requirements of the industry is
urgently needed, and is required
now more than ever before.

.\s to the odds and ends of curious

they  are  entrancing  and   innumerable.

They surrounded tho church, and
when the bridegroom goi out of his
Inns em they bundled him Into a four
wheeler anil  drove hill'  ofl.    Tin   bride
went weeping away, and from that
day to this Mr. Maisey has heard   no
ore ol   it bei partj.
Needless tee say In all these yens,
Mr. Maisey bas bad many anxieties
over     the    rim: with nervous bride
grooms. There is a certain grating
in tb ■ church in which be has lived in
dread, but mercifully no ring has
ever fallen down it. lie has had a
guardsman In uniform, buttoned up
.- . prodigiously suit and tight that
be (-"Uld not get the ring out oi his
'. and bad finally to use that of
the pew-opening old lady. If possible
he has always tried to uct the bridegroom into a quiet corner before' and
•■ nd say to him 'Whatever you do,
in,n't bo in a hurry.' but it has sel-
•en of any use, 'they will do it
—they will bring it out too Boon.'
dr. Maisey Ig now to have a well-
earned rest from these cares. He re-
tlres full of life and good spirits and

By instructions of the Hon. Minister of Agriculture a Iree distribution
of superior Sorts of grain und potatoes will be made during the coining
winter nml spring to Canadian farmers. The samples will consist of
spring wheat (about 5 ths.), white
oats (about l "is.j, barley (about 5
lbs.), and field peas (about 5 tbs, i
These will he sent out from Ottawa.
A distribution of potatoes (In 3 it's.
samples) will be curried on from sev-
eral experimental farms, the Central
Farm at Ottawa supplying only the
provinces of Ontario uud Quebec.
Euch application must he separate
and must be signed by the applicant.
Only one sample of grain aud one of
potatoes can be sent to each Turin. If
both samples ure asked for in the
same letter only one will he sent. Ap-
plications on any kind of printed
form cannot be accepted.
The destruction hy flre of the cereal
building at Ottawa, which contained
grain cleaning machinery and a large
stock of seed grain for distribution
nay make it necessary to curtail the
distribution to a certain extent. We
shall till us ninny as possible of the
applications which conform to the
Miles; hut requests received ufter the
end of December will probably be too
lute. Samples cannot be sent in resi or.se to applications (no matter
when received i which fail to state
clearly the needs of the applicant, his
i xperiences in crop raising, and the
i haructer of the soil on which he intends to sow the seed.
All applications for grain (and ap-
plicatlons from the provinces of Ontario und Quebec for potatoes) should
be addressed to the Dominion Cereal-
ist. Central Experimental Faun, Ottawa. Such applications require no
postage. If otherwise ade'.:v.-s'-el d--
lay and disappointment may occur.
Applications for potatoes trom farmers in any other province should foe
addressed (postage prepaid) to the
superintendent of the nearest branch
Experimental Farm  in that province.
The Postmaster General stateB that
n large number of parcels for prisoners of war abroad are still tfound to
1 e unfit for onward transmission in
consequence of the inadequate packing.
I'm eels should he very strongly
packed, A single sheet of brown paper or a tbin cardboard box, such as
a shoe box, does not aflord sullicient
protection. Even were proper iiuiter-
igls are used, it is important that
lhe contents should be tightly packed
so us not to shake about in transmission.
in view of the exceptional
conditions in transit, involving several transhipments und exposure to
grcal heat, it is necessary that parcels
for the Mediterranean expeditionary
force should be carefully  packed.
Tb. following recommendations nre
made is a result ol the experience of
i.niiy  post   otlices:
Small parcels nre likely to arrive
In better condition than larger ones.
If a large consignment hns to he sent
it is better to send two or more
small   parcels than one large one.
All parcels should he as nearly
lound as possible nnd should be well
wrapped with crumpled Papers, The
outer cover should consist of strong
linen, calico or canvas or other textile material and should he securely
s '-'ii un.
As an alternative jiurceis mny be
packed In boxes made of strong dou-
1 le cardboard or Btrawhox. It Is un-
deslrable to use metal hoxes with
square corners for the outer covering.
Parcels merely wnnped in paper or
• icked in thin cardboard poxes, such
as shoeboxes, cannot be accepted.
NM, perishable articles may he sent,
and uiything likely to become soft
nnd sticky, such as chocolates or
sweets, should be placed in tins.

for Patriotic Fund
A campaign for ->7,crt>U,LS,j is to be
instituted by the Canadian Patriotic
fund ou November 1st, it was announced by Sir Herbert Ames here
toduy. During the year ending September 1st the Patriotic (uud succeeded in raising $5>,e350,(K10, Some 2n,i>i>)
families ale now being assisted by
the fund, and hy next year it is an-
ticipated this number will be increased to 25,090. As a result of the
greater number of calls now being
made, tbe expenditure is now exceeding the revenue.
Figures are issued today showing
the per capita and total contributions of the different provinces- The
average was 70 cents per head, while
Manitoba contributed $1.42 per capita. The lowest rate which was in the
.Maritime provinces, which contributed 36 cents per capita, yuebec was
above the average with 80 cents,
whib' Ontario was below with &8 cents
r er  head.
Th • amounts raised by provinces
veie as follows: Quebec, $1,676
Ontario, (1,750,0001 Maritime provinces, W26.W . M in tob i 175 . 00; Saskatchewan, $240,000; Alberta $288, I
Uritish Columbia, $372, 0. The estimated requirements for the year commencing Sept. 1. based on enlistment     per provinces, are as f ill iWs
Quebec, $1,250, ; Ontario, $2,400,000

The figures show that Quebec, Ontario and the Maritime provinces
need Iris than M '"■: C ipita on a
basis of enlistment, while Alberta,
Which      has per      PO] llatiOn  enlisted
more     soldiers tlm- r pro

However, each pn -ince will met be

Money in Sunflowers Says
Kamloops Beard of Trade
The mutter of raising sunflowers by the fanners of Kamloops district has heen
considered by the Kumloops board of
trade. The Kamloops Standard has
investigated the subject and presents the following which is reliable
as tbe communication is from tbe United States department of ugriculture.   It reads as follows:
The sundower, known botanically as
Helianthus annuus, is an annual
plant, native of North America, now
cultivated as an agricultural seed
crop chiefly in India, California and
Missouri. The seeds are fed to farm
animals and poultry for fattening
I urposes and also for their condi-
mcntal and medicinal properties. By
cold pressure the seeds yield Ih to 20
jier cent, of edible oil of fine quality,
end by hot pressure a larger quantity
nf poorer quality, useful in soap
malting, wool dressing, in paints and
in certain kinds of varnish. The oM
of sunflower seeds is not produced
reially in the United States.
The sunflower does well in almost
any soil suitable for growing corn.
The seeds are planted about 2 inches
deep, very early In the spring, in
rows 3 faet apart. The seeds may be
dropped by hand or planted with a
drill, 2 to 3 inches apart. When the
plants are S to 10 inches high, they
should he thinned to stand ahout 18
inches apart in the row. If planted
in hills or checks, 3 hy 3 feet, two
Mints may be allowed to each
hill. From 4 to 8 pounds of seed are
required per acre, if planted in hills,
or If" to Ih pounds if planted in'drills
■vers are cultivated practically
the same as corn. For seed produe
tion the sincle headed varieties are
mended. The Mammoth Russian
is considered best, especially for the
i roduction of oil.
Sunflowers are harvested  when   tho
I eads     are fully ripe, usually ahout
thp middle of September.   The meth-
e A of harvesting varies according   to
■season  and  circumstances.   Usually a
wagon  is driven alongside the rows,
the heads are cut off with a Ion--* sharii
knife, thrown into the wagon box and
I gainst the sideboard whereby a large
part     of the seed is shelled out.     A
workman in the wagon uses a    stout
stick  eir a curry comb to remove any
seed remaining in the head, which   is
then     thrown     upon the ground.   Tn
this manner three men usually   hardest     at     least  an acre a day.   The
seed     is     cleaned on a fannine mill,
•  e.n a flooi   and turned   nt.
intervals until thoroughly dry,   sines
new seed  tends to become musty     lf
v  stored  in larce quantities.
v     ordlng  to  the  latttt   census  figures     the averaec yield per ncre     of
ver     seer! in the Tnited States
8 3   bushels.    Yields  fit  as much

lt was further inti runted that there
was every possibility of the ice becoming so heavy between the trips of
the boat that it might be frozen in
and the service thus tied up for the
1 alunce of the winter.
In reply to questions Mr. Mather
stated that the company believed
that a tri-weekly service could be
successfully operated during the winter, and that it was the compuny's
intention to follow out its original
plan during the winter mouths, but
he said there was no reason for assuming that the daily service would
not be resumed in the spring but he
could not give thc meeting any assurance that it would.He believed,
he said, that it was the intention of
the company to replace the daily service after the winter and when spring
I tisitiess warranted it.
Aifter Mr. Mather hnd withdrawn It
■i;i« resolved on the motion of Fred
A, Stnrkey, to forward a request to
Sir Thomas Shaughnessy that the
wishes of the people of thc district
be tnken n|i by some member of the
company who had power to cither accede to their requests or definitely refuse them and to Inform him that
failing this a direct appeal would be
: iade to the railway commission.
"The British are quite shrewd.
They pick out a number of specially
skilful shots, for most part old uctiv«
soldiers—Tommies. They are freed
from all other work, and nre ordered
to fire at everybody on our side  who
shows himself—a Insk which they'Us-

there is nobody.
"For s lonR time 1 have had ono
such English friend who would busy
himself every morning in his trench
with a eignntlc hoe.   He looked as if
he had just come from Water street,
Liverpool. Our men would always
shout across to bim, 'Hullo, Johnny,
what's the good word.'' (sic). Then
he would lay down his hoe, pick up
the rifle which lay by his side, and
fire at us—very often—well. No, I no,
longer see him—perhaps fate has overtaken him."
In another passage tbe writer tells
in firing at the bundles of clothes on
shore while their British owners are
"But now Tommy is boiling his
tea. Jam and biscuits are fetched,
and the empty tins are thrown out
of the trench. The tins glitter in the
sun like a silver line, and show us
