She' has three names in the picture  and in reality, portrays three different  characterizations.  First, she is >the' typical French  Apache who loves the "game" and is  oneof the notorious female crooks in  .Paris; then the theatrical dancer, the  idol of the French capital, and during, and after the war, the broad-vis-  ioned woman, whose complete regeneration has been brought about by  the" tragedies and horrors of the conflict.

Growers  going to the expense of, pre-cboling  should stamp in large letters at the  end of the crate the word "pre-cooled." This would distinguish between  berries pre-cooled and ordinary stock.  'We have noticed considerable sawdust on the top of the berries in  crates this year. At the peak,of the  season when berries are ^ ripe and  buyers are examining them the sawdust is often mistaken for the beginning of mould. In any case, sawdust  on berries is objectionable.

C  FAVORS]  SETTLEMENT   SCHEME  VICTORIA, July 29.���������Speaking  non-officially, E. C. Wade, K. C,  agent-general for British Columbia'  in London, strongly advocated'at-the  Rotary Club luncheon on Thursday,  the proposed scheme for the settlement of British soldiers and sailors  in this province.  It was a plan, said Mr. Wad,-,  similiar to those of pre-Confedera-  tion days by which Quebec was settled by- disbanded French troops,  Nova Scotia by British soldiers,' and  Ontario by the'United-Empire Loyalists. These settlement plans had  all been eminently successful in opening up and developing trie agricultural and other resources of these  Canadian provinces.  In the proposed "scheme the soldiers would be paid during the fir&t  three years as they were at the}  front. In that time they would be������  j learning the farming business, and  i they would be given 25 years in  which to pay back to the government  what they owed.  Despite various skeptical ass ir-  tions, Mr. Wade reaffirmed his belief in the great future of British Columbia as a prosperous agricultural  province.  Mr. F. J. R. Whitchelo attended  the Liberal pic-nic at Chilliwack this  week and reports it a very successful  affair.

A. BATES", Editor and Proprietor  FRIDAY, AUGUST  4,  1922  thc  In   the   daily' despatches   we  tice that .there is  a vacancy on  railway board and that Premier Oliver's name is mentioned for the position or    chairman.    Premier    Oliver  did good work apparently at Ottawa  some weeks ago before the committee  which     investigated .   into     railway  rates, and has since become very enthusiastic in regard to the matter oi  railway  rates to  this* province  lrom  the east, and had many in the province irrespective    of   polities',    who  feel  that  Premier Oliver did  all   He  could" possibly   to   get   a   fair   rare  over the railways  for this province.  Recently publicly  he announced   he  intended  following  up    the    matter  and seeing' the grand finale brought  out iii' favor of the business interests  of British Columbia.in which also ht.  has  the backing  of many .who  feel  that business demands better freight  rates'to. the .coast  terminal   if  tins  province is to play its important'part  in the development of Pacific Coast  commerce, -  As-premier Mr. Oliver has placed  the matter pretty thoroughly before  the p.eople of the east, this paper is  of the opinion that as chairman of  the railway board this province  would fare well from the railway  board were Mr. Oliver a member ol  that  board.  There is ��������� always this side ot the  qupstion too that one may look at,:  and that- is that being a farmer for  many years" of his life -.Chairman-  John- Oliver of the Railway Board  would not be afraid of 'taking the  bull -by the horns' and' settling the  matter right there and'then'irrespective of what the 'bull', thought of it.  The bull might suffer but when u  was all" over he would have a chance1  to recuperate along new lines of busi-.  ness.        ���������       . '     ;        ���������  And then again, while the railway  board would have gained a valued  member there is no-question-about  it but the Liberals of the province  would" be able, to. fill the job of  premier to the satisfaction- of ' the  other' members of the .party . in the  province. His loss would undouot-  edly be felt for some .time, but t.ie  good work he has. carried on could  most probably be undertaken by  some-younger man. .  The suggestion to have Mr. OW-  ver" on the., board is surely a ���������good  oner and there, are many who would  like-to see the suggestion a reality.

We consider  it cruelty to the readers of "that-pa-  .per that such a piece was ever penned';"'as"'there* is-nothing to    warrant  the: comparisons made.  It is hard for even the most sober  journals" to overcome the weakness'  for superlatives. "Here is the old  and reliable Toronto Globe stating  that Mr. Bracken "is only 39 years  old and" will be the youngest man  ever to be provincial premier, with  the exception of the late Sir Richard  McBride." : The fact is ' that some-,  thing like a score of provincial premiers in Canada have taken office at  39. or "younger. Among these Ontario furnished one, who is not altogether unknown in other -provinces  Edward 'Blake' was barely 38 when  he" formed .the.second.Ontario ministry oir the defeat of Sanfield Mcdonald. Mr. , Bracken is not even  the youngest premier that Manitoba  has known. Mr. Norquay was 37  when .he" formed his ministry.- Besides Sir- Richard McBride at least  two other premiers' of British Columbia,' Mr. Davie and Mr. Walkem  took office at 39 or 'younger. Sn  Joseph Chapleau became premier of  Quebec at 38. The late Mr. Justice  King was premier of New Brunswick  at 33 "and Mr. Blair at 39. Chief  Justice Sir Louis Davies was pit-  mier of his province when he was  only 31. Two of his successors, the  late Chief Justice Sullivan and the  late Mr. Fred Peters were respectively 3G and 39. For forty years  nop remier has taken office in Nova  Scotia over the age of 37. That was  the age of Sir John Thompson when  he became premier. Mr. Pipes was  32, Mr. Fielding and Mr. Murray 2o.  Mr. Walter Scott, the first premier  of Saskatchewan, took office at 3S.  We believe the list might be considerably extended.; These slight corrections are offered not for the purpose of making Mr. Bracken feel old  and discouraged,-but partly in the  Interests :of true history, and partly  tp warn they .-premier against indiscretions unbecoming to his years.���������  Province.  AH Eastern Canada was filled with  the uproar of the prophets of gloom  who foretold national disaster a? a  result of building the Canadian Pacific Railway. About 1879 the anvil  chorus was in full swing; ��������� Weste-js  Ontario was an alleged wilderness;'  the Prairies were unfit ' for human  habitation; British Columbia was a  sea of mountains; the rails of the  Canadian Pacific would - be two  streaks of rust leading nowhere; the  thing to do was'to abandon.,the project and salvage anything possible  from the wreck.  ,  Fortunately the bellowings of the  eastern Jeremiahs went unheeded.,  the Canadian Pacific was .pushed to  completion; there were several years  of anxiety; several emergency calls  on the government; but the result iy  the groat working and earning railway system which compares more  than favorably with any transportation  undertaking in the world.'  Then the Ontario government/commenced its Northern Ontario Railway. ' Here again was-cause for gr|.et  and ��������� desolation; the government  money was being spent In a hopeless  attempt to build a railway through -a.  desert, according to the wailings of  the gloom experts. .Now.that a great  mineral country and extensive tim-  'ber undertakings have been-developed by the Northern On'.ario Railway,  all parties in Ontario want th j rails  pushed through to Hudson Bay in the  confident belief that- great development and substantial commerce will  result.  Every colonization railway ever  built in North America has been pronounced' a failure.- Vanderbilt pick-  .ed up the New York Central lines for  a song. Huntingdon gave- nothing  for the Southern Pacific control. Har-  riman got the Union Pacific oh his  own terms. All the' other American  railway systems had their depths oi  despair. Then came population ' and  development and prosperty. ���������.  One can duplicate our provincial e>"  perience with the "Pacfic Great Eastern in-the history .of .any-'one.of the  successful railway systems in North  America today.- It is' no different, no  better, noworse than -the uniform  current of experiences with development-railways.  .  Just one thing is necessary to stait  the Pacific Great Eastern on the way  to prosperity,-and'that is through  operation .into the city of North Vancouver. Over.fifty per cent, of the  busness getting capacity of every  railroad depends "on -its ^ terminals.  The natural terminal of the Pacific.  Great Eastern .is on the north 'shore  of Burrard Inlet, with its, ample-harbor frontage and the local traffic 'of  North Vancouver city available for  immediate business. Within one .year  after Pacific ������.Great Eastern' trains  run through from North Vancouver  to Prince George'all doubt'as'to'the  usefulness of the railway will have  vanished; there will be public confidence in the success of. the undertaking.  This conclusion is based on a study  of all tho development and colonization railways on the continent. No  matter how scrawny an infant the  railway was, once it was given adequate terminal locations and facilities  success speedily followed. Bringing  the Pacific Great Eastern into the  North Vancouver, terminal will-bring  it into earning capacity; into development power for the immense area, of  country lying along its line, and into  public confidence. Nothing else-will  get the undertaking anywhere1' or  work any remedy. The. mode" of  filling the gap to give through connection with North Vancouver is  the one matter on which expert engineering is necessary. On the general success or failure of a railway  system on this continent, no expert  has been able to devise anything to  take the place of the natural terminal. In the Pacific Great Eastern instance, the natural terminal is North  Vancouver.���������World. 5r'. .

Its numbers were heavily reduced, and a    number    of    the  most aggressive Conservative    members���������men who would have been particularly usefull in opposition���������were  out of the House. ' But Mr. Meighoh  with the energy and    determination  which are    among    his    outstanding  characteristics,    gathered  his    little  band-around him and quickly inspired them with'much of his own spirit.

The Conservative    members    from  British Columbia have taken an outstanding part in the debates of    the  session.    It would be difficult to find  seven men in the House who are the  equal of Mr. Stevens, Tolmie-MacKel-  vie, McQuarrie, Ladner,    Clark   and  Dickie.

At-the very beginning of the session Mr. MacKelvie, -who was the  first-B.C. member to speak on tht  ''address" outlined in very comprehensive fashion the' 'peculiar problems of the province,' and took occasion^ to, tell the Progressives very  plainly where the province stood on  the tariff, in order' that they might  not be deluded into supposing that  all the' agriculturists of Canada held  -the. same opinion as so many of them  on the prairies. He warned them, in  what proved a very prophetic mariner, that when the session-ended they  would take home ��������� very little  if they depended on what the Government and put into the mouth of li's  ���������Excellency in'the speech from the  throne. There are .none who now  reccgize this more "completely than  the Progressives themselves.  The manner in which the orcharding interests of British Columbia  have been fought for by the Conservative,party has been a feature of  this session; and it ymust be said  that in this respect they received the  support of Mr. McBride and' Neil,  although both voted tot thej-epeat  of the dumping clause. When the  tariff came down there was very little indication that the Minister of Finance had had any regard to the  welfare of the industry; as he proposed to do away with! the measure of  protection from the United States  !dumping'which it had enjoyed. This  ���������was fought persistently by the mem-  jbers'of the Opposition, and eventually some changes were made in the  Customs Act which placed in the  hands of the Minister of Customs the  power to deal with the tariff pretty  :much as he may see fit. This power  was assumed with the express intention of applying it to dumping and  was a sort of ruse for saving the face  of the Minister of Finance who had  himself refused to retain' the wise  provisions put in the Act by the late  administration; but it is not so quick-  Telephone Signs on  the Highway  Convenience In vacation-days is made possible by  the telephone.

APPOINTED     FOR  COLUMBIA VALLEY  MENTION of the name of David  Thompson  would convey  little-  meaning   to   the- average  Canadian,'  and .yet no one did more in his day  to,open up new .trade routes through  -the ^hitherto unknown defiles of the  Canadian    Rockies    and    to    apply  scientific  map  making  to  the  geographical  exploration  of  the  West.  His day-was over a hundred years  ago,  when   the   trade. of   the  West  was'entirely a,fur trade and almost  -entirely-:in' the hands of two great  Companies, the Hudson's Bay Company, with headquarters in England,  and the North-West Company, with  headquarters    in    Montreal.    David  Thompson was a charity school boy  who Vent  out   to   Canada   in   1784  at the age of fourteen years to take  service-' in-, the  Hudson's  Bay  Company.    Thirteen years later he joined the rival  North-West Company,  which offered him greater facilities  for survey and exploration. The first  trading post established by a white  -man West of the Rockies in what is  now known as British Columbia was  erected by David Thompson, on the  pi-ores of Lake Windermere, in July,  1807, and the opening up to civilization of the Columbia and Kootenay  Fivers was largely due to his enterprise  during  the  succeeding  years.  All this time he was making  sur-  vrvs  and supplying  the foundation  for   the  Government   and    railway  maps of to-day.   From 1816 to 1S26  ho was engaged by, the. British Government in  surveying and  defining  the boundary  line between  Canada  and the United States from Lower  Canada' to the Lake of the Woods  At the age of eighty-seven he died  in  poverty  at  Montreal,  where  his  * remains lie buried without a monument * Mount Royal Cemetery. Ye  so   accurate   were  to*���������>g* ra"d  surveys that when in 1857 the Canadian  Government  desired   to   publish a map of Western Canada, they  had to fall back on the map  made  by David Thompson in 1813.       '  > While he was engaged asa.lur  trader, says his biographer, Mr. J.

His ambition was to determine  and  delineate  the physical features  of the whole of North-Western America.

He was a strong opponent  of  the liquor traffic; and  while  he  was in charge" of the western posts  no alcoholic liquor.s were allowed to  be   taken   to   them.-,. The-years  in  which Thompson  was-in, the/West:  were  perhaps. the   period  in  which  this debasing .trade was at its worst.,,  Rival   companies -were   vying   with  each other for the furs; and cheap  spirits were regarded by the traders  as the most profitable sort of barter.  Such, however, was not Thompsons  view.    He believed  that the use of  intoxicating  liquor  in trade  was a  short-sighted policy." ������     .  As a tribute to the work of David  Thompson, the Canadian Pacific  Railway and the Hudson's Bay Company are co-operating in the erection of a David Thompson Memorial,  Building on the shores of Lake  Windermere, close to the site of the  original trading post named Kootenai House which the explore  established in-.1807.

The formal-opening  of this memorial building is being  arranged for September 1st, and  will be accompanied by an Indian  Pageant; -A number of historian*  and those interested in the early ex-  pfbration of the West are expected  to be present. .,.    ..���������..--  oncermng  When you order printing you buy something  more than paper and ink.

SI MP UK RULES FOR  HANI) SIGNALS  AESOP WAS ALL WRONG  FOX  CAN  CLIMJi  TREKS  Aesop was a wise old fable writer,  but when he wrote the fable of the  fox and the grapes, he had never  seen a Kentucy fox, nor had he seen  the picture, "In Old Kentucky," featuring Anita Stewart, which will be  shown at the Abbotsford Theatre on  Wednesday, August 9th. If he had  we never should have been indebted  to him for the fable which has" become  a  classic.    ��������� ,  For 'in Aesop's fable the fox could  not- quite reach the grapes, after  which he pulled the old saw that they  were' sour anyhow. If it had been a  Kentucky fox, lie would not have  stopped with just reaching for  grapes. I-le would have shinned up  the vine after them. For Kentucky  foxes actually climb. You will see  this done in the picture, " In Old  Kentucky," and it is an actual occur-  ance. Chased by dogs in a great fox  hunt, this fox takes refuge in the  lower limbs of a tree, to which lie  scrambles without much difficulty,  just out of reach of the hounds.  1.

Business is fairly brisk here this  past week, but the market was rathor  overloaded with B. C. Sweet Cherries  and still has too many, although  shipments should drop off now.

FIRST CAR   LOGANBERRIES  ^The-first straight car, of Loganberries arrived in Calgary on Monday  the 24 th July. The berries were picked in the right condition for-shipping  and arrived in good shape.'The trade  does not want the deep pint hallock  for Logans, and while^they contain a  trifle more berries than the 2-5 qt.  hallock, they do no show off the berries to advantage. >,The flat crate  would sell for more, and the berries  carry better. It is a: mistake to use  the deep pint hallock for Loganberries. -',  The pack would be greatly improved by facing. About 200 crates were  taken out of the car at Calgary, and  the balance sent further East.  your wife because she does not \van.t to bake  Bread these hot days, call up LEE'S GROCERY,  have your Bread delivered fresh   every day. ami  (ell her she is economical. .   .    ,      -    ,  r * , r ��������� ',  ALBERT LEE, Baker and Grocer  (feS9B*S2.
