August 17.���������Produce  dealers say trade has been good during the week. A number of- mixed  cars have arrived from the Okanagan  Valley and Koremeos districts.  Apples: Prices are firm on ��������� No.  1 grades while "no grade" stuff is  also holding strong, considering, the  class of stock sent in. California  Gravensteins will not meet with the  same demand this year as formerly  as they are in competition with the  same variety from B. C. and Washington, which can be sold for $1 per  box less.  Crab apples as usual are slow.  Plums: Pair quantities of B. C.  plums are coming forward. One  straight car of Peach Plums from the  Okanagan Valley arrived in only fair  condition, the trouble being "Plum  Rot". This is something unusual for  the Okanagan. Lower Mainland  plums are now on the market bat tho  movement as yet for canning stock  is'somewhat slow.  reaches:   Few Triumphs from  tho  Okanagan Valley have arrived and it  is expected that the real peach season will be on during the next two \  weeks.  Blackberries are remaining strong  any surplus being taken care of by  the  canneries.  Tomatoes: Field tomatoes are now  prominent on the market. Some  small shipments came in from the  south during the week but these are  not in the same class as B. C. and  should have been sold for ordinary  green stuff.  While prices are firm today we  can see brewing a fermentation of  trade unrest on the part or some  which is going to spell'disaster to  the tomato market unless some of  the up-coutry shippers keep themselves bettor posted on the market  prices and conditions  here.  We cannot see any great advantage in wrapping and packing field  tomatoes in four basket crates for  this" market. Field tomatoes will be  sold as field tomatoes and we believe  that the time speiu in wrapping and  packing put on cleaning the mud off  some of the stock would be much  better. Under  present  conditions  nice clean stuff put.up in lug boxes  or apple boxes would no doubt meet  Willi  approval by the  trade.  Other Vegetables: Cukes are plentiful and very cheap. Field stock is  running all the way from 20<J to 75tf  a doz., according to "size and quality  Beets, carrots and parsnips are in  good demand, while, egg plant is  moving slowly at 20<? to 22<? per lb.  Cabbage  is  holding  strong  and  the  enquiring as to the future potato  marekt. From actual existing conditions and reports received from  various producing centres in North  America we could forecast what the  market should be or at least what  the conditions would justly warrant.  However, this would be useless as the  offensive one clay and. the defensive  the next day and in our opinion will  be just, what some broker, whose  bread and butter depends entirely on  the tonnage he must .sell, makes it.  In some cases where the brokers  sell on a brokerage basis per ton  it is to their advantage to lower  the market and sell "qauntity". The  market for early potatoes has been  lowered needlessly and, as usual  the poducer is made the "goa.t"  Items of Interest to Potato Gowers  While one broker is busily engaged  loading cars for Camp Lewis at a-  rouncl $40.00 per ton a second broker quotes $37.00 our information  leads us to believe that contractors  can pay as high as $50.00 per ton  for the next month. Just as long as  our formers leave their business in  the hands of this class just so long  will they enjoy working sixteen  hours u day for the benefit of the  other fellow.  The U. S. crop bureau of crop estimates on August 1st places the pros  peetive potato yield of the United  States at 391,000,#00 bushels or  52,000,000 bushels less than 1917.  The early crop in the Okanagan  is well cleaned up.  Oregon reports a probable product-  j ion of approximately 6G per cent of  1917.    Idaho  about the same. .  Yakima growers are getting from  $2.75 to $3.00 per cwt. for early  stock.  Mr. Tweedlc estimates the B. C.  crop at 15,417 acres as against 15,-  264 in 1917.

GRANT,  Prairie  Markets  Commissioner  PERSONALS  Harry  Answers  (he  Market   Commissioner  Okanapan Landing.  Aug-.   Loll),  'IS'  To   the   F.ditor, '  Fuscr   Valley   Record,  Mission  City,   B.   C.  Dear   Sir:  On account of beinsr absent when your  edition of Aus-ust. Sth arrived, found it impossible to -write my answer to Market Commissioner Grant's,.lcn{rthy tirade in time for  this   week's   publication. 'f  T was very nmch surprised to learn that  tlie Market Commissioner depended upon the  courtesies of Calgary wholesalers -to donate  their second hand newspapers to liinV whereof  he could clean facts relating- to the largest  berry growing- district in B. C.  Quite a lot has been published in your paper during the last three or four months relative to your districts needs with regards to  transportation, packing, variety, etc./;" and  puite   a   lot .of   this   information ,mi.~^' have  done Mr. Grant a great deal of  ing he does not -'know it all."  if Mr. Grant is not on your  please   put   his   name   on,   and  good, provid-  At   any rate,  mailing   list.  forward   the  bill   to   Barry.     (Mr.   Grant   recently   became  a paid  subscriber.���������Editor)   Mr.  Grant knows  full   well   who   Barry   is,- and   if  little   notice  may  be   taken   of  him   wherever  lie  goes,   it  is a  well known fact  that ho  can always go  back   to   tho   same   place  again   and  do   business.    In   his   tirade   he   asks   if   Barry   is   a  "bona  fide  fruit  grower  seeking  honestly  to  advance   the idustries  of  that  business."  Did  he ask that question for any honesty of purpose,   after knowing-  that  it  was  Barry  that  called   this   self-same   Grant   in   the   floor   of  meetings   assembled   at   Pcnticton   and . Sum-  morland  last  winter when he  went on  record  contrary   to   the   sentiments   ot   tho   market  commissioner   when   this   worthy   official   advised the growers to put in certain crops, and  sell  at a  figure  100%  lowor  than  Carry was  prepared  to  pay for  these  commodities.  Does  Grant   forget  that he  made  the remark   to  a  hall filled  with  growers  that crabapples were  not   worth   more   than   eighty   cents  per   bov  when  Barry said that  one dollar  should    bo  the  minimum,   and   no   distinction   should  be  made    against    Transcendents    which    usually  netted a lower price than Hyslop.    Does Grant  forgot   that   he   beat   Barry   "to   it."   on   this  count  for  no  other  reason   than   he   (Grant'  presumably speaking on behalf of a brokerage  concern,   and   the  representative   of   this   concern   was' at   the   mcrting.   and   his   opinion  coupled  with Grant's naturaliy overruled  that  ot   Barry.  It  Mr.  Grant   can  show  th;  od as hard or as long in the  B. C. Fruit Grower as Barry,  step  down   and   olu.  By  this  Mr.   Grant   to   take   into   account   the   lemrth  of time that he was making pants and coats  in Victoria  for  the  Gonion  Head  fruit  growers,   but   the   active   length   of   time   that  he  has   been   the   accredited   representative      of  two or more growers   for any stated  periods.  Now  (he  cause of  the  to   Vancou-  for  a  two  away  holi-  in town  at  ;t he has work-  interests of the  then Barry will  I   do   not   mean  strife  that has existed this season betwen the Market Commissioner and myself is Ihe fact that every  week.. Mission and districts Mirrouiidiim  would receive a "knock" in the bulletin, and  this ������������������knoi-k" was always urule in aross i;r-  norance on the part of the "knocker."  After the "knock" was published in the  Build in. and circulated broadcast over the  country it was up lo Barry lo "call the  bluff" and it lias been called on every count.  This can very well 1)0 verified if Ihe miwUel-  iug articles. are compared with the Mark"!  Bulletins. Grant would -give a , "knock" one  week. Barry would answer the same week.  and Grant would crawfish in the next. Mr-ne;  .by writing eomo dope to tlie cfrect that  Marry  agrees   with   himself.'  it is impossible for mo to airfc with the  Market Commissioner for various reasons,  and one of tho principal reasons is directly  in Hue with the statement that be has made,  to tho effect that "tho buyers and growers  lnerests /ire not identical." This sentence  shows the calibre of the man: his narrow  vision, his bigoted idea, and selfish motives.  It also proves my deductions are correct  when 1 have stated that the M. C. is not  onto his job. Grant is on the prairie to fulfil one mission and one only, and this mission Is to make the growers and buyers interests identical in every sense of the word.  In this mission ho has been a total failure  or else he could not have made the above  remark. There exists today a too wide chasm  between grower .and distributor and there''is  not a reason in the world why this chasm  should exist, if the right .man was��������� on ihe  job as representative of the growers.  For the reason that this estrangement exists!  it does not follow that the intcress are not  identical. They are identical, and right to  the last letter. The gwroer depends upon  the distributor' to market his crop, and the  distributor depends upon the grower to provide the crop to be marketed. This sentence  covers the whole transaction so far as grower  and  distributor   are   concerned.

Mrs. Fred Grant and Vivian Grant  from Point Grey and Alma' Kidd  from South' Vancouver are spending a week with the McMenemy family,   i* .    ...  transaction looks simple in the extreme; but  is it?  The nigger in the wood pile comes to light  in the shape of "Transportation." Transportation is tlie direct cause of the chasm before mentioned, and when this nigger is obliterated (he chasm will be spanned, and all  differences that now exist between grower and  distributor   will   bo   forever   settled.  it lias been a hard hard job to get started  on tlie transportation problems, and every  time something is started for the better, some  ignoramus vested with ten cents worth of  authority upsets the whole business. In  Grant's letter he. says thai "Barry deserves  some consideration for cabin*; attention even  m his erratic way to Ihis important subject"  and refers to Hulk-tin Ko. !S wherein you will  see that "Barry" and yoiir M. C. are not far  apart on the subject, of need Tor careful handling in transit and more attention to ventilation,   etc.  Barry called attention to thi:J fact June  Kith. 10 IS a I Mission. B.

The Department of Colonization  and Development fo the Canadian  Pacific Railway anounces that it will  award a silver- cup valued at five  hundred dollars for the best bushel  of hard spring wheat exhibited at the  International Soil-Products Exposition at Kansas City, Mo.. October 16-  2tith", 1918. All farmers in Western  Canada who have good hard spring  wheat should be interested in this  announcement and it is hoped that  among them will be found the successful competitor,  Wheat has become a vital factor  in the conduct of the war and the  Railway Company hopes in this way  io encourage production of the be3t  varieties. At the saraet im������ it is  hoped this competition will, focus attention upon the immenBe food-producing possibilities of ������������������Western Canada. Canadian farmers have been  winners of many competitions of thi  international Soil-Product Exposition and'the winning of this cup by  one of their number would be an appropriate climax to a series of  triumphs.  it is expected that boards of trade  agricultural societies, farmers' organizations and other public bodies  throughout Western Canada will interest themselves in seeing that the  very best bushel of wheat.in each of  their respective districts is netered  in this competition. Individual farmers will also no doubt be eager for  the distinction of winning this cup.  Particulars as to" the exhibit may be  had by adresssing Robert J. C.

We publish two letters .this  week���������one from the market  commissioner at Calgary and  the other from our old friend  Barry. Read, them both the}  are interesting.  What are the market commissioner's duties? This is  something that we would like  to get to the bottom of. The  people of the province are paying the.price-but nowhere have  we seen what the duties really are.  It would appear to us that a  man is on the wrong track  when the statement is* made  ''that the buyers and grower's1  interests are not identical''. We  presume that the buyer is the  distributor or broker in the  transaction. ������������������  The .interests of the grower,  as we take it is to place as good  an article on the Calgary market as possible and get a fair  market value for it; the interests of the distributors���������the  buyers, is to get that good article���������it can't be too good for  him���������and sell it to the consumer. The better the article the  greater his commission will be.  In the respect of returns- both  the buyers and growers interests are identical.

Calgary Market  MARKET  LETTER  (Plunl  Cajgary, Anj  rett & Savage)  ;. 14th, 10.111.��������� During  the'past .week the arrivals ol! British  Columbia fruit in carlols have become more frequent. LOvery car is  loaded pretty heavily to potatoes of  which there is quite a percentage arriving in poor condition owing to being sacked too wet or being allowed  to lay,in Ihe sun too long. There has  been some evidence of powdery scab  We have, however, in every instance  where there was any appearance, of  poor potatoes re-sacked everything  and shipped it outi u good condition.  Therefore, we are sure that' the deliveries of potatoes have been all of  fine quality. Pota'oes are being offered today as low as $3S.O0 to $40  in the Okanagan Valley. Stock's on  hand cost from SoS to $45 beginning  from the date they arrived. The demand is good and by the end of this  week will be working entirely upon  a cost of $35 in the Okanagan Valley.  Blackberries: The market on black  berries has been exceedingly good  but the supply does not in any way  meet tlie demand. Price is ruling  from $4.00 to $4.25 per crate. We  are interested in receiving increased  shipments  of. this  commodity.'  Uhioberrios: Receipt of blueberries,  have been limited which is due to a  great extent to the_ wet weather in  British Columbia cutting down full  supply. On Monday of next week  there will be good full supply daily  from Ontario, selling on a basis of  $3.00 for a 15 lb basket.  Peaches are arriving now from all  parts of the Pacific Coast slope, namely California, Oregon, Washington,  and British Columbia. The heaviest  shipments are from California and  the variety entirely Elbertas which  are of fine quality and have sold today at froin $1.75 to $1.85 per crate  which in our opinion ist he lowest  price that first class free stone peach  es wi 11 reach this year. There are  also receipts from Washington and  Oregon but the varieties have not  been as favorable for a demand from  the consumer for the reason that  they have been clings and semi-clings  mostly Triumphs and Deweys. '��������� British Columbia receipts of peaches  cluing this week have been quite liberal and the maket on account of  the small size and the over-ripeness  ol* the fruit has got down as low as  $1.50 wholesale. This can be expected in view of .the market being  well supplied with California freestone stock of Tine quality.  , Apples. Tiie apple market in Calgary is exceedingly slow and we aunt a loss to account for such alow  movement The price is reasonable  namely we aro selling No. 1 Duchess  -wrapped at $2.50 per box No. 2 add  faced and filled green apples at  $2.21-. We do not expect to be able  to sell apples at much below this  figure (his year, rlha crop is a reasonably good one in the West but to  our mind can be maketed in the  Western Povinces without any great  reduction over the buying price today  which is $1.7 5 for loose pack faced  and filled.  I'lums. liecejpt of plums from !���������.  C. for the last ten- days have been  quite liberal and the peach plum predominating. Most receipts have arrived in dogooenditio ii fgwyp  rived in good condition and sold from  $1.75 to $2.00 per crate of four  baskets. There have also been a  few Tragedies Burbanks and Sugars  Tragedies netting about 5 0 c* a crate  more than the other varieties. Two  cars of California plums arrived this  week and) have met with, a very  'ready market at. around $3.00 to  $3.25 per. crate. These plums are  extra large fancy desert fruit weigh-  in b about 26 lbs to the crate net,  therefore the reason for being able  to get the price that we are naming  on this particular pack of fruit. The"  same includes such varieties as Tragedies Diamonds, Giants, Wicksons,  Kelsies and Grand Dukes.  Pears. The market has been well  supplied with pears from both Washington and California.    The Bartlett  is the only variety that is now offered  Washington pears are selling at $3.-  50  for standard box weighing about  50   lbs.   gross.    California   pears   on  account   of   being   a   more   uniform  pack   and   being   for  immediate   use  command about $1.00 per box more.  Canteloupes. This market is receiv  ing  two  or  three cars  of  these  per  week.  Apricots have been rather a drug  on the market this week on account  of nearly all receipts arriving in more  or less unsatisfactory condition, due  to a great extent to over-ripeness of  the fruit when shipped. We are  told on good authority that the fruit  has got ahead of the growers and  they are forced to gather the fruit  too ripe for shipment. We take it,  therefore, that the shortage of labor  .is making its appearance in the producing sections, and we want co  warn all shippers of fruit that they  should endeavor at air times to get  their fruit packed and shipped on the  green side, rather than take the  chance of losing the entire shipment  and the express charges in addition.  Good apricots are selling freely at  $2.25 per crate for No.  1 stock.  Cucumbers. Pickling cucumbers  are reaching the market this week in  large quantities and being sold as  low is '90(J a box of 20 lbs. This to  our mind, is about as low as cucumbers will get this year. The market  is however, in fine condition for receipts of heavy consignments of cucumbers, but wo want to warn all  growers to refrain from, sending  them by express as they would not  show them anything like decent ....returns. Freight.runs abou t 8tf a box-  where as express is .4 5^.  Tomatoes. Heavy shipments of tomatoes have been received this week  from Ontario. A car Saturday morning next will undoubtedly be the last  car of Ontario tomatoes to reach the  Calgary market this year. Price will  be $2 per basket of 18 lbs.  Tomatoes from  B.  C.  Receipts  of  , (From the  Bulletin) -  Rogina, /Vug 10���������British Colmbia  mixed cars moving freely, but at the  same time reports from all parts of  he province, indicate that the demand is not strong and sales by the  jobbers  light.  The opinion of .the shipper seems  to be that in view of the shortage of  peaches and' plums that Bartletts  will lie used extensively to lake care  viously filled with these commodities  of the requirc'iiii'iils which were pre-  Winnipeg.���������During the past week  your M.'

MAiNZUIt  ''    'At   the  memorial  service  for Mrs'.  ���������Oscar Manzor held in the Presbyterian church, Mission City, on the KJtli  inst., '.Hiaro was a very large attendance   from   Silyerdalo,   Mission   City  ' and , fuurrounding' district, liov. Dr.  Dunn, of New .Westminster, Rev. Mr  Wealhcrdon, Episcopalian, and Rev.  C.  McDiarmid, of Mission City,  took  ��������� part, in the service. All spoke in  impressive and touching terms of the  la.te Mrs. Manzer.  -������������������ Dr..- Dunn who had been acquainted with her for thirty years delivered tlie following address:  The cause of our gathering here  today -was as unexpected as it was  painful. To mo, to all of us, the  death of our dear friend, Mrs. Manzer, was an un looked for .event. How  little   do  avo   Know   today   what   (.he  , events of tomorrow may be. Till Sal-  unlay the deceased appeared to be  in her usual vigorous health, attending to her ordinary household duties,  when suddenly as a thief in the  night, the call came "arise and depart; this is not your rest." After  all, how much to be desired is a sudden painless' death to a long lingering illness, accompanied by severe  torturing pains. The date, the place  the. manner of our departure God in  His wisdom determines, and just as  Ke determines so it comes to pass.  The exact date of my first meeting  with the Manzer family, I am not  quite certain. 'I remember to have  conducted servicesr"ut Silverdale,..on  several Sunday afternoons from IS90  onwards. One Sunday afternoon I  arrived early for service and found  Mrs. Manzer, with her young family'  around her instructing them in the  Holy Scriptures!'      Another  Sunday,  >-after a long'walk, 1 reached the Man-  ��������� zcr home (the place- of meeting) late  and found the people waiting, perhaps impatiently, the arrival of the  preacher to begin service. When I  got thero, however, 1 was not quite  ready to begin. 1 managed to communicate the fact to Mrs. Manzer,  that 1 had had no food since early  morning. In'an instant she quietly  placed bread and beet and water on  a shelf in the pantry and signalled to  me to come in and partake. I gladly  did so standing. In that quiet, kindly,  hospitable way she, that day, treated me; and in that same kindly hospitable manner she treated all ministers and missionaries coming to Sil-  yerdale. But whenever f returned  to the settlement to conduct some  special service, I found, whoever  might be present or absent, Mr. and  Mrs. Manzer there, with their family  cf boys and girls, latterly young men  and women. The late M  threw her whole weight  so:il--:s .of religion and morality, and  h<;! -lillueuce for good in tiie district  as as great. She .was a peacemaker  and ncit a peace-breaker. Slander,  meddlesome, gossipy conversation  she detested and avoided, licr wisdom, .tier candour and her piety eminently .fitted her to be the counsellor  of old;'and young. M'y friends, the  name of Mrs. Oscar Manzer will be  remembered and spoken with respect  and reverence throughout  municipality for long long  come.���������Columbian.  rs.

If you COULD (although, OF COURSE, you  can't) stop ovary man you meet o*i the streets  asd ask: "Do you want to. buy a pair of shoes?"  (Or any other kind of-'goods) You might find  half a dozen who would say "Yes." Perhaps not  one of these, however, would waat to buy the  article you want to sell.  If your advertisement, however, were to be  printed in these oolumns this week, it would  "stop" EVERY MAN IN TOWN WHO WANTS  TO BUY SHOES, OR CLOTHH8, OR ANY  OTHER ARTICLE���������aRd .it woaldn't "stop" anyone who didn't want'to bay- That's the beauty  of the advertising way of fimdiwg a brayer. The  ad. finds the buyer through the slMjkle process of  being easily and readily foiand BY the fruye-r -  And if, among the prospective buyers of goods,  there is one to whom your goods would be a bargain, and your ad. is a convincing one, you'll sell  what you want to sell.

' A great many have gone to town  this week to attend the exhibition,  among those are the Peeles, Boyds,  McGowans, McCallums, Mr. Martin  'and  Geo.   Salt.  The profits obtained from marketing lean, poorly ileshed, uniformed  chickens are so small as to be frequently discouraging. Many of the  packing houses and larger produce  dealers find it necessary to go to considerable expense for.the premises  to provide the necessary premises  and equipment to properly finish such  poultry. The best place to feed  " poultry is on the farm, and, if it pays  the packing houses to take the trouble, it obviously would be good business to do the work on the farm:  Proper' feeding and finishing will  not only greatly increase the weight  of the birds, but' will also enhance  the value of every ounce of flesh on  the carcass, and greatly reduce the  proportion of offal in relation to the  amount of edible meat.  There is generally a difference of  from three to seven cents per pound  in che price paid for well-fleshed  birds as compared with lean unfinished stock just off the range.  There is always a market for  -prime quality ��������� poultry, while the  poorer quality has to be sold at whatever price can be obtained, depending on' the market and the amount  of effort put forth on the part of the  seller.  Birds generally make the greatest  gain when about three to four  months ������������������ of age,and the average birds  :aake the most economical gains during the first two. weeks of special  feeding.  Chickens can be readily taught to  feed by lamplight; this is a great  convenience, as it is desirable that  ihe time of feeding be spaced as near  ly as possible ^welve hours apart.  The crate system of feeding is much  more economical and efficient. in  practising this method, one is able to  carefully note the progress being  made by each bird and the feeding  period of the more thrifty can often  be shortened or lengthened as desired  Also the flesh of the crate-fed birds  is invariably softer than that of pen  fed  birds.  For amplication of the foregoing  information apply to the Publications  Branch, Department fo Agriculture,  Ottawa, for Bulletin No. 88 .of the  Division of Poultry of. the Experimental Farms entitled "Preparing  Poultry Produce  for  Market."  No Food to Waste  The fact' that the restrictions on  the use of. bacon and other pork  products have been removed for the  time being, does not mean that food  economies are no longer necessary.  Tho facts are that there is not an  ounce of food too much in the world  and that every man woman and child  is under the sternest necessity of  saying whatever he or she can ot  those foods most needed oversea.  Any temporary relaxation of the restrictions, such as in the case of pork-  must not bo construed as notice to  the public that extravagance In any  food is again endurable.���������Canada  Fod Board.
