AID TBE PROGRESSIVE
B. C. Government  will Help
Farmers and Producers
in Enterprises.
Cooperative   Companies   Encouraged
by Loans Up to 80 Per Cent.
of Capital.
The Department of Agriculture has
taken prompt steps to make available
to the fruit growers and farmers of
the province the benefits which are
provided under the legislation of last
session.
Not only has provision been made to
permit a loan to cooperative companies
of eighty per cent of their total capital, but the department has gone fur-
her and has arranged to place at their
disposal the services of an expert,
who will give them the benefit of his
long experience. The appointment of
R. Kobertson, of Vancouver, will give
general satisfaction, because he is
generally credited not only with the
expert knowledge, but with the organizing ability as well, to make a success of any marketing proposition.
This bill, the provisions of which
do not seem to be generally known,
is so drastic as to merit a rather extended reference. Under it twenty-
five or more persons in any locality
may organize for the following purposes:
(a) The manufacture of cheese,
butter, cider, jams, pickles, and spray
mixtures, and the drying and canning
of fruit and vegetables;
(b) The keeping of swine, and the
manufacture and sale of the various
products resulting therefrom;
(c) The dealing in poultry, eggs,
milk, cream, and all other agricultural
and horticultural products and in supplies required by patrons of such associations;
(d) The dealing in flour, feed, fertilizers, spray materials and their accessories and in foods of all kinds for
farm stock, for the purpose of supplying the same to the patrons of this
association:
(e) The erection and maintenance
of a cold-storage plant and the sale of
ice; and
(f) For any purpose which may be
approved by the Minister, having for
its object the development of agriculture.
Dairy Associations.
Provision is made that dairy associations may, by complying with certain conditions, come under the operation of the act.
The conditions with which any such
association must comply are set out
as follows:
(a) That the district within which
it proposes to operate is competent
and fitted for its support, and that
there is a reasonable prospect of the
same beiner a financial success:
(b) That the association has acquired the necessary plant and buildings for carrying on of its operations,
or a site upon which to erect such
necessary plant and buildings;
(c) That the acquisition of such
plant and buildings or that the plans
of the buildings  and the nature and
mmmtm
cost of the proposed plant and equipment have been approved by the Minister; and shall transmit to the Minister a statement verified by the statutory declaration of its president, secretary, or manager, showing:
,(d) Number of members of the company or association:
(e) The amount of stock paid up,
which must be at least twenty per
cent of the subscribed capital:
(i) All mortgages or charges (if
any) standing against the property of
the association:
(g) Such other information in its
possession or power as may be called
for by any regulations framed under
this Act or which the Minister may
require.
The loan in each case is to be for
twenty years, with interest at 4 per
cent and with provision for a sinking
fund to permit of its payment at the
end of that period.
Under such an act it is evident that
great care must be exercised to prevent abuse almost as great as the
neglect of which complaint has hitherto been made. An irresponsible
minister or executive "might involve
the province in a financial tangle that
would do/Tmuch to defeat the good
objects which the statute seeks to
obtain.   1/
jj While/we regard t__fe/as improbable,
yet tbfe J_ie_8_^-€_>vernor-in-Council
will doUbtless seek the advice of ad-
visorjf /b<__rds in eacbf/district, whose
duty it will be fe» seer jthat the department is prop/riw yauvised with respect to local, applications. We understand- Mi~VRobertson will hold a
number of meetings/in the Okanagan
Valley, and doubtless the conferences
then held will result in some definite
plans being evolved. We regard the
whole movement as a significant forward step in the development of the
co-operative spirit in British Columbia. By it the people of the whole province, through their representatives,
come to the aid of the one industry
which has received the least aid from
the fortunate circumstances in which
our people today are found.—Fruit
and Farm.
DOMINION DAY.
A meeting of citizens was held in
the courthouse last Monday evening
to provide for the annual celebration
on Dominion Day. There was a fairly
representative attendance and every
thing augurs well for the success of
the celebration. C. E. Thomas occupied the chair and B. L. Smith was
secretary. Committees were appointed as follows: Finance—C. Summers,
N. Huston, G. G. Lyall, S. Gibson, J.
Gellatly. Dance—S. Gibson, Eric Anderson, Len Huston. Race—C. Summers, N. Huston, J. Gellatly. Sports
—W. H. Russell, R. W. Moeran, K. C.
Brown. Drilling—iW. Wilson, C. Willarson, T. Dignan. W. Martin was
appointed marshal. The meeting adjourned to meet again on Thursday
evening.
The local lodge of Oddfellows are
preparing to build on their lot corner
of Fenchurch av. and Bridge st. The
building will be 100x50, two story.
The cold, backward weather indicates high water. Snow is plentiful
in the mountains and all that is necessary to make the rivers boom is hot
sun for a few days.
MINES AND MINERALS
Creosote   as a By-Product of
Coal has Very High
Economic Value
Miners and Prospectors Soon in Hills
—An Active Season in all
the Camps.
One million, four hundred thousand
gallons of creosote could have been
produced in Western Canada in 1910
if the coal that was converted into
coke had been coked in by-product
ovens. With the exception of the
creosote produced from the by-product ovens at Syduey, N. S., and at
Sault Ste. Marie, Ont., no creosote is
produced in Canada. This valuable
wood preservative is imported from
Britain and the United States, but'the
high cost of the imported article, has
restricted its use very materially. In
view of the steady and even rapid rise
in the price of almost all classes of
wood products the importance of creosote is readily seen. Some of the
millions of tons of coal underneath
Princeton might be converted into
creosote.
Jensen & Reiley, who are working
on the Christmas Box claim, in the
Tulameen district, have uncovered
what is said to be one of the best ore
bodies yet ev^r found at the surface.
Mr. Dornberg has arranged to work
the Robertson and Connolly properties next to the Treasure Mountain
group.
Jas. Kelly, of Tulameen, has sold the
Gold Mountain mining claim to Spokane
people. Mrs. Bresneham is interested in
this section and will direct mining
opeiations. Mr. Kelly has been located
on Kelly creek for 18 years and has
done a lot of placering.
H. W. Guthrie and W. Low _ are opening a livery stable aud packing business
at Tulameen.
Jas. McCauley, mining man, arrived
in town this week.
Andy Anderson is working a bench on
Granite creek.
J. Wheeler is placer mining near the
old Pogue on Granite creek.
P. H. Kennedy has returned from Copper Mountain where he is interested in
the Annie L. mining claim
DOMINION FORESTRY.
July 7-9 has been fixed as the date
of the Dominion Forestry Convention
to be held in the City of Winnipeg.
From all the provinces of the Dominion, and from many of the states
south of the line, there will assemble
an exceptional gathering for the consideration of problems connected with
the preservation and extension of the
forest resources. Prairie planting and
woodlot management will form a large
part of the proceedings but other matters, particularly the ever pressing
problem of forest fire protection, will
be fully discussed. The sessions will
be held in the hall of the Industrial
Bureau, and the Provincial Government, the City of Winnipeg and other
organizations Will join in welcoming
the delegates.
The railways are granting to delegates convention rates, and it is expected that through the far-reaching
importance of the discussions of the
Convention, and the added attractions
of- Winnipeg and the West at the beginning of harvest, there will be an
unprecedented attendance.
Full   particulars  as  to  rates,   program, etc., may be obtained from the
Secretary    of   the   Association,    Mr.

DUKE OF CONNAUGHT.
The Canadian Club in London, Eng.,
recently received a visit from the
Duke of Connaught, Governor General of Canada. At the banquet in his
honor he spoke in part as follows:
'I do not know a prouder position,'
His Royal Highness said, 'for any
Englishman to hold than that of His
Majesty's representative as Governor
General of Canada. When, my late
brother asked me to accept this high
position, and the offer was renewed,
after his death by our present gracious sovereign, I felt doubt whether I
could do justice to so high a position,
but I had no doubt that I should find
friends in Canada today, as I did forty-
three years ago.
'Gentlemen,' the Governor-General
went on, 'since I have been in Canada,
the last year and a half, I have felt
more and more that I had been able to
gain the keen sympathy—I venture
to say, affection—of the whole Canadian people (cheers). I am sure you
will believe me when I say I have
never spent a happier year and a half.'
'To those Englishmen who have not
been there,' he declared, 'I say the
sooner they go the better. Canada is
moving by leaps and bounds.'
The Duke also paid a tribute to the
enterprise of the Canadian railroads,
but expressed the hope that the Government might see its way to promote
great highways as well. He expressed deep gratitude for the sympathy
shown the Duchess, 'who on two oc-
ccssions had been at death's door.'
LOCAL AND GENERAL.
Wilson Bros, have the contract for
building a cottage, 28x30, on the top
bench overlooking town, for R. W.
Moeran. They are also erecting a"
milk dairy and driving shed for Geo.
Aldons on his ranch.
A. E. Howse of Nicola arrived Mon-,
day on a business visit and will remain about a week.
W. C. McLean is offering for sale
or rent his temperance hotel at Ashnola. With the ever increasing traffic to the surrounding mines and the
trade generated by the construction
of the great transprovincial auto road
and tourist routes there is no doubt
a hotel will "be a good business venture at Ashnola.
In the police court presided over
by Justices of the Peace Waterman
and Thomas, the case of Orr for stabbing Phelps was heard on Monday.
The prisoner Orr was given one week
sentence and. was defended by K. C.
Brown..

The Ottawa Evening Citizen says:
It was stated today in authoritative
circles that when the naval bill reaches the senate the Liberal majority will
move the same amendment as was
moved by Senator Lougheed, now government leader in the upper house, to
the Laurier naval bill of 1911, namely
that the bill does not become law
until submitted to the people for their
approval.
Governor Tener of Pennsylvania
approved the bill recently passed by
the legislature providing for county
systems of pensions for mothers under
the administration of a commission of
from five to seven women to be named
by the governor for each county availing itself ot the provisions of the law.
The trustees are to investigate all
cases and may recommend payments
to any abandoned mother or widow
who is unable to maintain her children at home. Payments are to be
made monthly, and the combined maximum payment shall not exceed twelve
dollars a montjti for one child, twenty
dollars a month for two children,
twenty-five dollars a month for three
children, and five dollars a month for
each additional child. For the purposes of the law an appropriation of
two hundred thousand dollars is made.
The mother's pension system has been
put in operation in four states and
has been advocated by many organizations of Pennsylvania men and
women.
Three billion dollars for new TJ. S.
roads and their maintenance, the
same to be raised by national and
state cooperation, is the proposal submitted to the joint congressional committee on federal aid in the construction of post roads. One billion would
be used for construction and two billion for maintenance, both extending
over a period of fifty years.
The strike in Belgium for equal
man-suffrage has ended in most of the
industrial towns of the provinces. A
good many insurgent miners at first
refused to descend the coal pits, notwithstanding the orders of the National Socialist Congress. Competent
economists reckon the money loss
caused by the strike at twenty million
dollars, which the Socialist leaders
declare to have been well lost if the
country has thereby won equal suffrage.
Considerable activity is being exhibited in northeastern India in taking preliminary steps for the establishment of railway systems destined
not only to connect Burma with India
but also to link India with- China.
Postmaster-General Samuel, in presenting the annual post-office budget

DISPOSAL OF EEFUSE
The Commission of Conservation
at Ottawa has published some very
useful suggestions regarding the
disposal of garbage and refuse and
says tbat it is a serious problem for
the small city or town to solve. In
such cases public incinerators are
not always economical and the ordinary dump need's careful regulation to prevent it becoming a nuisance.
Burning or burying is the most
desirable method of disposing of
ashes, rubbish, . manure, and garbage irj. cities. Of these, burning
is the most sanitary, and no other
means should be used* in cities
having a population of, say, 20,000,-
or more. .Refuse incinerators are
of two main types [1] the coal fired
or, "low temperature," anb [2] the
high temperature. The latter is
designed to handle mixed garbage
without the use of coal. Very few
of these have as yet been installed,
and their advantages have not been
entirely proven. For the coal-fired
incinerator a long-flaming coal of
good quality is essential. This, of
course, makes the cost of operation
all but prohibitive for most small
cities and towns.
In such cases, other means of
refuse disposal must be obtained.-
To simply dump garbage in an
unrestricted manner on some vacant lot should be classed as a
criminal offense, and punished accordingly. The practice of bury-
iug refuse, where it is carefully
carried out, is usually found to be
cheap and at the same time effective
The principle upon which refuse
burial rests, especially as applied
to garbage, is, primarily, a bacteriological one. The action ot the
soil bacteria, is to mineralize the
organic matter in the refuse. In
order to prevent the occurrence
of putrefactive or other objectionable odors the mineralizing process
must be carried out in the presence
of sufficient oxygen or air.. '-To secure these conditions the following
points should be observed: [1]
The garbage should not be buried
too deep, nor should it be spread in
too thick a, layer on the ground.
[2] The ground should be sufficiently porous and well drained to ad-
•7.it the air readily. [3] The garbage should be mixed with enough
other refuse to prevent overloading
the soil./;4|||| lip
These conditions are obtained in
different ways... In some_cities the
refuse is spread on the ground and
then    ploughed    uTn^dfir(j.  AnotKer.
method is that of digging a trench,
covering each day's collection of
refuse with the soil, removed for
the qext day|s supply. In any
case, refuse tbat can be burned
should.be so treated and garbage
and other organic waste can be
more effectively handled by mixing
it with other waste such as ashes,
street sweepings, etc. It is claimed
that 1.5 acres are necessary to
handle each daily ton^of garbage
permanently. The soil can be reused at the end of two years.

OSLER PHILOSOPHIZES
Sir William Osier, in addressing the
religious meeting at -Yale University
recently, outlined new rules for practical daily life.   He said:
'My method is the freshest, oldest,
simplest and usefulest. Forget the
past, forget the future. Life is a
habit as hard or as easy to acquire as
any other in life.
'I'm no genius; my friends have
found that out, but take no thought
for the future nor the past. When the
load of to-morrow is added to the load
of. yesterday, many men falter in the
way.
'The first two hours of a day determ
ines   that   day.     Quit   tobacco    and
liquor.   Bright eyes are the thing.
'The control.of the mind as a working machine-is the end of all education. That can be accomplished with
deliberation. The most striking thing
about America is its hurry. Europeans accomplish just as much without
that everlasting rush.'

formative stages. According to the history of progress in this province investments made now in East

At the annual fair that is held at a
small town in Russia a man observed
a gypsy and a Pole haggling over the
sale of a horse. When the transaction
was over he asked the gypsy how
much he had got for the animal. The
gypsy opened his hand and showed a
ten-ruble note—worth about five dollars.
"But isn't that very cheap?"
"No," said the gypsy. "The horse
is lame."
The man then sought the Pole, to
whom he said: "You have given ten
rubles for a lame horse."
The Pole smiled knowingly and remarked: "He is as sound as you or I.
I saw he was badly shod, and that was
all."
The inquirer returned to the gypsy
and reported what the Pole had said.
Then, with a significant wink, the
gypsy whispered:
"He's as lame as a two-legged stool!
I had him badly shod on purpose to
make people believe that that was the
cause of his limp."
When the Pole was told this, he
seemed for a moment taken aback
and hung'his head; then he heaved a
sigh and shrugged his shoulders.
"Ah, well," he said. "It's all right;
it was a bad ten-ruble note."

"Swivelton has a sorry habit of nodding while in church, hasn't he?" |
"Yes, and I understand he did the

auction room and when he woke up he
found the auctioneer had sold him a
cheap, second-hand bicycle for $150."
The teacher was addressing his pupils on the subjects of laziness and
idleness. sif!*!^
He drew a terrible picture of the
habitual loafer—the man who dislikes
to work, and who b^s for all he gets.
"Now, John," said the teacher to a
little boy who had been inattentive
during the lesson.
John was instantly on the alert.
. "Tell   me,"   continued   the   teacher,
"who is the -miserable individual who
gets   clothes,   food   and   lodging,   and
yet does nothing in return?"
John's face brightened.
"Please, sir," said he, "the baby."
Colonel G  '- a fine commander, but not a muscian. He sent for
the chief musician of his regimental
band one day and delivered this scathing criticism:
"I notice a lack of uniformity about
the band which must be regulated.
Yesterday morning they were out in
parade, and the largest man in the
band was playing a little bit of an
instrument—flute or something of the
kind—and you had the big drum played by a small man. That sort of thing
doesn't look well and must be attended to. I want the small men to play
small instruments and 'he. big men
the big instruments. And another
thing—I want the trombone players
to slide their instruments in and out
in unison. It annoys me to see them
all ouf of step with the hands."

Save One Ton of Coal
in Every Six
The Economizer will  do it.
While the cost of living has undoubtedly been
growing greater, at the  same   time it   is   true
there are some  inventions that   will offset   this-
increased cost of living, and the careful housewife takes advantage of these inventions.
On every Gurney-Oxford range there is an
Economizer which controls not only the drafts
but also the entire combustion or burning of
fuel to create   heat.
This Economizer will save 1 ton of coal in
every 6 that you would use with the ordinary range.
The Economizer is a simple device, absolute
in its control. By merely moving the lever you
can obtain any degree of even heat in the oven.
This insures the satisfaction of always having
light,  delicately  crusted bread and biscuits.
The kitchen fire ceases to be a worry if the
Economizer is on your stove.
The   Gurney - Oxford is   the   final result   of
experimental    thought. Science  has   given   it
a Divided Flue, a   new Special   Grate,   and   a
Broiler attachment.
This Gurney - Oxford range is primarily a
a saver of money, time, and energy.

Well,  anyhow, soap ain't so good as
some old fashioned mud
That kids can waller in.    It seems to

An' make 'em glad, an' then they dive
an' then come up as white
As  anything!     I'll bet I  won't come

It's just the water in a tub that gets

An' get the soap into my eyes—I do

Why all his  hair come, off his head.
His mother long ago
Would get her fingers into it when he
was in the tub
An' fill his eyes an' ears with soap,
an' then she'd scrub an' scrub!
Why,   every   little   kid   I   know,   hie

PEACE PROBLEM
Secretary of State Bryan explained
to the Senate committee on foreign
relations last week his plan for avoiding war between nations by giving
their passions six months or a year
in which to subside before proceeding
to hostilities. Mr. Bryan proposes
that when a situation arises where
two or more nations, having exhausted all the expedients of diplomacy,
are virtually On the edge of war, an
inquiry into the merits of the case
m ,y be made by an international commission of inquiry which shall study
and report upon the'case, the parties
involved pledging themselves meantime not to go to war with each other
within a period of six months or a
year; as may be determined in the
treaties the secretary of state proposes to negotiate.
