Grant; the prairie  market commissioner, addressed the  growers yesterday afternoon at the  hall at Hatzic.  There was a good attendance ol'  growers. t  Mr. Grant referred Lo his new method of cooling the fruit cars.. A fan  is.placed in ths car and driven by the  car wheels. While the car"'is standing a motor may be- used for making  the fan go. The arrangement is very  simple and would appear to be the  right thing in tho right place and the  Hatzic growers are enthused with the  idea and will adopt it this year if it  is possible to induce tha company to  listen to them.  It would appear Lo be in order for  the growers in every part of the Valley Lo Lake the matter up with the  express company and uri;e that the  new cooling system be put into effect imediateiy.  M. Grant stated that the Brine  Tank Car had not" given satisfaction  and had been condemned by American growers. He advocates the Bohn  system.  Mr. Grant also addressed the meeting on the bsst way to market the  fruit and it is reported some very  excellent advice was given the growers which they intend Lo put inLo effect this summer. He also reported  that 2 cars had arrived in Winnipeg  in very poor condition, while from  Puyallup 35 cars had arrived in good  condition.

' It  is   true   Lhal.  hard-headed   business, men  everywhere    believe     this  voar and several more years to come  will witness unprecedented prosperity  throughout   Lhe   world.    An   Eastern  banking authority, for instance, has  very recently made Lhe positive statement that ������������������merchants" shelves all over  the country are  barer  than  they  wero before, on account of trade restrictions and the paucity of transportation during war-time."  Consequently, while it suggestg'Lh-  thought that -shrov/d merchants may  go slow in 'stocking up' to any great,  extent because of tho prospect of a  steady decline in nricss.1 the necessity  for establishing li.u.s of goods ueplot ���������  ed or exhausted daring the struggio  will result in "hand Lo mouth"' buying on such an enormous scale as to  offer 'a splendid market for all tho  manufacturing nations wliosu business intents arc alive to the opportunity. "������������������  In other words, one may regard tuc  future with cheerfulness, despite the  dark pictures painted by some observers who are inclined to overestimate  the influence exerted on world affairs  by the elements which recently were  Lime indebte'dnoss, that it must finance this debt by, taxation and that  even during-a period of prosperity,  the people must save for whatever  future time of lessoned business activity there,may be in store for this  people or for the world.  Those who have been purchasing  War Saving Stamps must continue .to  do so, if'the Treasury Department  goes through with its plans for Lhe issue of a llUO Se'"ies ������': Uiesc llltract"  ive securities.  Those who have been buying Victory Bonds must prepare to "come  through" when Lhe next loan freelj  predicted is presented .some Lime in  the future.  In ihe interim. iL is Lhe part of prudence to continue piling un savings  or to invest, them in ��������� substantial  things rather than to squander them  in Lhe way that America dissipated itis  revenue during other periods of pros  perity.

Trees indigenous to each locai-  ,Ly will be selected and cared  /or by the communities through  which the highway passes.

The result  will be a beautiful avenue from  which no tree will be allowed to  disappear through lack of care.  The trees selected are nursery  grown and are already  thirty  feet hieh and eight to ten inches in diameter. The .transplanting will probably occur, in April  as that is the best season for  such work in that locality, livery detail will be attended to by--  the Manhattan branches, of tne  Council of National Defence.  There is   certain   to   result  from the memorial tree movement a much-needed   awakening to the decorative value    of.  frees and the necessity for their  systematic and intelligent planting and care.    Paris was the  first great city to    attempt   to  solve the baffling problem    of  securing tree growth along the  paved   roadways   and   streets.  New York adopted Paris method  and modified them to meet additional problems due    to   the  shallow depth of soil on Man  hattan.  As finally worked out the one  who plants trees for the Borough of Manhattan   must   provide first of all an excavation  three feet deep by four by six  feet.    This is to be filled witn  excellent soil to within six inches of the top, the soil well tamped about the roots of the transplanted tree.    An iron grating  the full size of the excavation  but in two parts and having an  18 inch circular opening in the  middle for the tree trunk is the  next requisite.      This   grating  rests on the sidewalk material.  In  the space between the soil  and the grating it is possible  for a large amount of water to  reach the roots and there is   a  chance for the escape of gases  which permeate the soil   of   a  large city.    It is also possible to  cultivate the   soil   underneath  the grating by stirring it frequently with a specially devised  tool.     Liquid fertilizer can be  easily applied after cultivation.  Trees planted several years a-  go in an effort to try out this  scheme are flourishing in  the  same spot where trees planted  in the old way have invariably  died or at least have not flourished.      Where soil was   unusual iy poor,gratings have been  increased to eight feet each way  aud a fine lot of trees is the result.    It almost seems as if every one who can should plant a  tree to keep alive the realization of the desolation sown   by  the Huns in Belgium and northern France where not one tree  survives.
