EL JONES  Funeral Director  Furnisher of Funeral Supplies  Phone Connection. Mission City  iSsiqiisiiii^  Elsewhere will be found a letter from' the  pen' of our mutual friend Mr. S. J. Fee of the  Vernon Fruit Company.    . Tlic present letter  , will be followed by others.  These letters are not for the purpose of advertising the Vernon Fruit Company,'but are  written at the request of this .paper with a view  of opening up discussion in the interests    of  the growers, and,with the object of arriving at  some solution of the marketing of our fruit before another season���������some plan whereby the  growers will get more for their fruit and not  have to risk the shipping of same to the prairie  The reason we asked Mr. Fee is that we know  lie has the interests of the province and the  Hatzic district and this paper -last summer promised some of the growers that we would open  our columns to a thorough discussion of the  marketing of the fruit this coming winter, and  we believed that Mr. Fee, with his abundant  and practical experience in handling B. C. fruit  on the prairie could start the ball a-rolling in  hue shape.  We may be able to publish the views of others before the winter is over; but in the meantime every grower is at liberty to express his  views on marketing, in the columns of this pa-k  per���������the more the merrier. There are men m  the district who should be able to give some  good advise as to how to get the most out of  the fruit, and the fruit grower generally wants  to hear the views of others, whether he agrees  with them or not.  There does not appear to be anything to it  but for the growers to get together and work  out a scheme that will get them the money.  The raising of the fruit is easy���������all can do  that; but there is the getting the money for it  -the most important part of he business  . it was our hope that Mr. McVety, of the  Trade and Labor Council Vancouver would be  present at tlie Growers banquet on Friday evening but as he was not all were disappointed  Now if there is any man in the province who is  in a position to help us wth the labour .end of  the fruitgrowers, problem it is we believe Mr.  M'Vety. He is at. the head of a very large and  powerful institution in Vancouver and knows,  or we think should know, where sufficient labour can be procured for the berry picking.  There was keen disappointment among those  at the banquet that he \vasrn.ot (.here. After  his remarks to the Vancouver paper all had an  idea he would be present. If he will say some  other time and when this paper will guarantee  him a-good house���������at least wc think we can.  <��������� There is no question but that the presence  of,so many Miss Mosquitoes and Mrs. Mosquitoes���������i'or it is only the lady'mosquitoes who  bite according .to some scientists���������is one of  tlie real difficulties in the'securing of labour  from Vancouver or other outside points. At.  the present time there are forces at work that  we trust will bring the best information.as to  the best .method of ridding the Valley of this  pest, it will cost money but will in the end  solve'the difficulty of the grower in respect to  labour.  and form tlic family Culiciduo. Tho  Tlie insects of this family have the  lollowing distinguishing characteristics. They possess long slender antennae composed  of  fourteen or iif-  ��������� teen joints; a greatly elongated proboscis; the wing veins are' clothed  wll.li   minute   scales,- and   there   are  .veins or sub-divisions of veins which  reach the margin of the wings-.  There is no distal cell in the, wings,  and there are spurs at the apex on the  inner side of the tibiae. Down' to  Lho year 1900 the mosquitoes of thoj  world were not well known and comparatively few species had been desT  cribed by entomologists but the discovery that, the'species of tho genus  Anopheles and allied genera are .responsible for tho transfer of malaria  and the subsequent discovery that  Stegomyhi Calopus is the sole transmitter of yellow fever have attracted  widespread attention to the group  and very many new specie;) and now.  genera have been colled ed and described; Several hundred species are  now known and these are distributed  among uiiuiy genera, and several subfamilies. .  Mosquitoes ^''C 'found in almost,  every locality, where there is opor-  lunily for t.hem lo breed,' and this  opportunity depends simply upon the  presence of some time    during    H'n  year of-standing water.  The main remedies against mosquitoes however must be directed a-  gainsf their breeding places and the  most, successful of these remedies are.  three in number: (I) the total abolition of breeding 'places; (2) the  treating'with petroleum of the surfaces of stagnant pools which' for  some reason cannot be drained; (I!)  fhe-inlroductiou of  fish  into Ashless-  . o ���������  ponds.

But what a peace!  Meeting Held First Monday of Each Month  Write the secretary regarding manufacturing; sites  with unexcelled shipping facilities and cheap power  or information regarding the farm and fruit lands oi.  the district, and Industries already gg^jffi6**  MTSSION-HATZIC   BERRIES   AND  THUS  PRAIRTE  MARKETS  (By S. J. Fee)  I  have  written  three  articles  for  The Fruit and Farm under the head'  -1 ngs'. of Co-operation,  Concentration,  Supervision.. While thost. articles  were meant for the fruit-growers In  general, there were many points pertinent to the marketing of the Mis-  sion-Hatzic crops. But these art  icles will deal directly with the problems confronting the Mission-Hatzic  district. And by way of introduction  let me appeal to each grower, whether he is a frined of mine or riot, to  approach this matter, in a broad-  minded way. Sink little personal  differences and animosities, to think  cf the business, not alone as a personal one, but also of it as a great  industry, of which you are a part,  no matter how small your acreage  may be. Do not think of your neighbor'as a competitor, but as one with  you in a great industry, having a re-  sponsibilty to him and he to you, in  working for the best interests of  that, industry, and so strengthening  your district, your Province, the Dominion and the Empire.  We must realize that it is only by  combined effort that we can succeed.  Let me assure you, Individually and;  collectively, that I see no insurmount-'  able obstacles ln the way of the sue-!  cossftil marketing of your crop. There  is a market for all you have and you;  can   Increase   production   to   a   very  great extent and not reach the limit  of the demand.    And to reach  that  demand, is no very difficult problem.  The   public   want   British   Columbia  berries   and   does   not   demand   that  those berries come through some particular retailer,  wholesaler or  brokerage concern.    "That our brokerage  and chain of houses is the. only medium   by   which  you   can   reach, the  markets" is simply a bluff.    No one  chain of houses has absolute control  of the markets.    In fact,    at    many  points,they  are  at  a  decided  disadvantage through the retailers feeling  that they are dealing with a trust, and j  are being made to pay at many times,  more  than   they  should.     If  the retailers knew they were dealing with  wholesalers who were only getting a  reasonable margin, they would be far  more enthusiastic in hustling the berries, than if they thought they had  to charge a high price mainly for th(  benefit  of  the  wholesalers.     II  is  a  mistake to sign an exclusive contract  with   any   firm,   even   the   one   with  which 1 am connected. The only contract advisable would be one of selling F. O.B. shipping point, inspected  and  accepted, at  that  point.    There  are two unwritten rules with certain  wholesalers; "Take your profit today,  there may be no profit to morrow",  and "Never take a loss that can be  shoved onto  some one else".      The  growers  may think they are at the  mercy of the jobbers.    They are not.  They have a handful of trumps, and  if they will let me, I .������������������will .-show, them  how to play  those trumps.    Not by  handling all the staff ourselves. That  would not be necessary or advisable.  But by makin������r the other fellows play  tho game and play it fair.    Just con  sider thiSvthat the prairies want berries, and the jobbing house that can  not get  them  is  in an  embarrasing  position. They will make every effort  to get those berries.      Then why an i  agreement that is all in the favor of!  tho jobbers? Just;get these few facts, i  Tho Prairie and Prairie city consumer  want your berries, retailers want to  handlo them, that neither care particularly through what chain of jobbing houses they get them through,  so  long as  they are not held  to an  almost out of reach price in the process.    That the demand, at fair prices, is greater than the supply.    That  the  jobbers  want  the  handling    of  those berries and need them to complete their lines.    Here are the trump  cards.    How to plyy them.    This let-  cards.    How to play them. This let  that in the next two letters.  MATSQUI..COUNCIL  Victor   'Atkins  (Continued from Page One)  Tom' Tomaon $19,20; V. L.

If you COULD (although, OF COURSE, you  can't) stop every man you meet on 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 I'Yes." Perhaps not  one of these, however, would'want'to buy the  article you want to sell.  If your advertisement, however, were to be  printed in these columns this week, it would  "stop" EVERY MAN IN TOWN WHO WANTS  TO BUY .SHOES, OR CLOTHES, OR ANY  OTHER ARTICLE���������and it wouldn't "stop" any-,  one who didn't want to buy- That's the beauty  of the advertising way of finding a buyer. The  ad. finds the buyer through the simple process of  being easily and readily found BY the buyer -  And if, among the prospective buyers of goods,  there is ono to whom your goods would be a bargain, and your ad. is a convincing one, you'll sell  what you want to sell.

Tlie officers of the Experimental  Farms recently had an opportunity of  inspecting quantities of potatoes in  thc consumers' own cellars. The  potatoes had been purchased in the  ordinary way from small dealers. The  condition of the potatoes was most  unsatisfactory, in three cases the a-  amount of rot came up to 75 per  cent of the total quantity in storage.  This rot was the common Late  Blight rot, and was certainly present  when the potatoes were dug, and before shipping.  The consumer is helpless in such  cases, and rarely is there a way open, to  him  i'or compensation.       Nor  is the small dealer to blame.      The  blame  rests  entirely  with   the  ship  per and  the grower.    In order  that  such losses may be avoided and the  consumer be in a position to secure  for   his  good   money,   good   potatoes  (hat will keep over winter, it is nee  ossary for the growers, on their parti  (o exercise more care in digging, sorting   and   handling   potatoes.        Late  Blight is a preventable disease;   every farmer should know    this    fact,  since   the   Experimental   Farms   system, has made every effort to demonstrate on many farms in the country ������E3KMfcma^^  (.lie  effect  of  spraying,   with   results ������  showing the    production    of    sound  crops,   and   an   increase   in   yield   a-  mount to some 90 to 1.00 bushels per  acre.  The sale of inferior potatoes is  dishonest, if not illegal at the present moment. Farmers know from  their own experience that storage  rets cause great losses in their own  ceilars. It seems, however, the general practice to dispose of an infected  crop immediately and shift the losses from rot from the farmer to the  consumer. The latter, however, has  to pay the price of good potatoes.  In some instances, no doubt, the  consumer is to blame by storing potatoes (or other winter vegetables)  in too warm cellars. Potatoes and  similar vegetables must be stored in  a cool place. They cannot stand  frost, which causes a sweetish taste  in potatoes; but the temperature  above 4 0 degrees  conditions are non-  SEKT  rttttsss:mxtt3xr&yjtrvxr  Pork, Mutton, heel, Veal, Pc  and Balogna alwaj's on hand.  ���������k Sausages,   Wieners  Fish every Thursday  *-ii^.^;.i  ^*\,~.
