McVety, of the provincial  employment board, to the effect that  his office is receiving many applications from Washington, Oregon and  California points for information regarding employment in the * harvest  fields of the prairie. These inquiries  come largely from Canadians who  have gone south and are now desiring of returning,, and, according  to Mr. McVety, it is an indication  that Canadian losses' of population  will be quickly remedied by returns  during the summer and fall.���������World.

In her earlier history "British Columbia, was thown.into close intimacy with her .^neighboring states by  the mountain walls'"which shut off  both from landward communication  with the east; and whilst those rocky  barriers, have now been pierced by  railroads and highways, the sym-  pathy...engendered in the. time . of  common, isolation still survives and  grows stronger, with the" passing4  years.'   ���������:   .

Patrician  and a unit of the Jericho Beach air  j station, the U.S.S.'Henderson steamed, slowly through tlie Narrows' into  Vancouver harbour about 9 o'clock  Thursday morning.  The vessel which carried President and" Mrs. Harding and .party  was greeted with a naval salute of  21.-guns, which was' answered by tht  Henderson. '  '  '-Before the official' landing was  made, Col. Ernest J. Chambers,..gentleman usher of the Black Rod,  boarded the vessel to confer on finai  details with Mr. George li.

Major Stuart Armor,-D.S.O., accompanied them.        ������������������     V  "Promptly at 11 o'clock, President  Harding stepped ashore, and as he  did so the guns of the 68th Battery  of-Jthe 15th Brigade,''Canadian .Field  Artillery, commenced firing a 21-  gun salute,- which was. taken up by  H.^M.S.. Curlew's  guns.  The President, accompanied by  Mrs.- Harding and his entire suite,  .walked along the- wharf .to the south  end' of Shed 2. .Here;.he.was,-greete'd-  by^a- military guard^i- .'h'oritff? o6m'-:  manded by Major Stuart Armor.  D.S.'O.   '  As the President -.approached the  south end of the^ pier, the guard  stood ' at "present arms" while the  buglers sounded the Royal salute,  and ,the colors were dipped in honor  of -the  distinguished  visitor.  After inspecting the guard and the  Royal Canadian Mounted Police,  President Harding was conducted to  the south end of the shed, where civ-  iv and provincial dignitaries waited'  to do him honor. Here official addresses of welcome were read to the  President by Mayor Charles' E. Tis-  dall for the city of Vancouver," Premier Oliver for the province of British Columbia, and Hon. Dr. J. H.  King from the Dominion of Canada.  lAfter the President's speech m  the "Park, President Harding return-  to the Hotel Vancouver and the  civic luncheon in the hotel ballroom.  The President and male members  of the ipart'y visited the Shaughnessy  Golf Links  after lunch.  A state dinner was tendered the  President in the evening and following that a public reception was  tendered the party, during ' whiei.  time the ground floor of the Hotel  Vancouver was packed to capacity  with spectators. Following the  reception, the party was escorted to  their vessel again, and amid the  roar of cheers, the Henderson moved  slowly into the stream and out of  the harbor.  HON.  DR.

For more than a century the  peoples of the great neighboring republic of the United States and Canada have enjoyed a period of undis-  turbed harmony and concord, unique  and unprecented in the history of  nations.  Your visit, marking as it does the  first with which    our    country    has  been honored by a President of the  United States during his term of office, comes with particular appropriateness at this time, as affording us  an opporunity  of    demonstrating to  the American people through their 11.  lustrious President,    our desire that  these happy relations shall continue.  . _W.e regret that- circumstances will  not permit you to make a more cx-  Itejtided ���������'.stay-in. Canada and .are confident that'the people of    British "Cor'  lumbia will, by the    earnestness and  cordiality of their    welcome to you,  -dispose you to  return  to  Canada  in  the not too far distant future, . and  thus gratify the hopes    of    many in  other provinces'   of    the      Dominion  who, on  the present occasion,  must  be merely content to associate themselves in spirit  with  the  citizens  of  Vancouver in welcoming you to our  country.

' Among the guests at the home of  Mrs. Davis on Friday evening were  Mrs. Kidd, Mr. and, Mrs. Eastman,  Mr. and Mrs. J. B. Williams, and Mr.  and Mrs. P. Pettipiece of Vancouver.  The party motored into Abbotsford  and attended the ' W. B. A. garden  festival.  At the residence of Mrs. M.  Murphy on Wednesday a very pleasant surprise party was tendered Mr.  and Mrs. R. PI. Thompson of Vye,  on the occasion of their, departure  for Vancouver where they will 'reside. The evening was arranged by  members of the Parent' Teachers'  Association and the Huntingdon  Women's Institute jointly, and a  very jolly time was enjoyed.  During the evening Mrs. Owens  presented Mrs. Thompson Avith, a  handpainted butter cooler, and a  bon-bon dish; Mr. Owens making a  very suitable address in which he referred to the fine relationship which  had existed between Mr. and Mrs,  Thompson and those with whom they  came in contact in the district, and '  expressed the sincere regrets of  friends at their removal.  ���������Mr. and Mrs. Thompson    left    on  Thursday for Vancouver.  The Misses May, Ruby and Anna  Fish of Cultis Lake are the guests' ot  Miss C. Cummings this week.  Mr. A. Heath put through several  sales this week having sold the bal-  . ance of the Crosswell estate at Mt.  Lehman,  in 'two five-acre lots,    one  to Mrs. Gradin and the other to Mrs.  Young of Vancouver Island who will  go there to reside. ,   .

Vancouver  The strawberry crop has now been  completely cleaned up, a total of 135  cars having been shipped. These include 43 cars shipped from Vancouver Island and Channel Island points.  On the mainland the Berry Growers'  Association report having shipped  62 cars, the balance of 30 cars having been handled by the Pacific  Berry   Growers.  In 1922, only 19 cars were shipped  from the island, but shipments- to  the canneries' and jam factories were  considerably heavier. Shipments from  the mainland were also very much  heavier this year than last, but as  far as can be learned the canneries  at the coast have absorbed an even  larger amount of the crop than they,  did in 1922. This will also be true of  raspberries, loganberries and blackberries, large quantities of these b>  ing taken by tl.J canneries and dehydrating plants, owing to the slack  demand on the prairies.

A. BATES. Editor and Proprietor  -".j ���������vit'.raBri  FRIDAY,  .1ULY   27,  ���������n r  ~~ it"        9 2 3  nr,  ac-  General McRae, returns today,  cording to press reports, from a  political tour of the upper country.  Mr. Bowser 'is' again at the  coast after a speech making trip  to, various parts of the province.  Premier Oliver has visited many  places in the province within the  last few months, and is now officially  in Victoria. But the funny part of  it all is that Premier Oliver is the  only ono of the three who announces  that lie has' a real good job, and that  he intends to keep it as long as he  can. Neither of the other two appear anxious to hold their present position any longer than they can help.  . They are of the same opinion as  Premier Oliver that John O. has the  best job of the three and announce  the fact that should an election take  place at an early date John 0. would  not feel so proud of the position ho  would hold, thereafter. Both Bowser  and McRae feel that way about John  O.'s job. But Premier Oliver says  he can, if he likes, hold his job  for another three years in spite of  Bowser and McRae.  The ' announcement of Premier  Oliver,' if if be his real opinion,  would indicate there will -be no election very soon, but not long ago he  Avas' very undecided in the matter.  One would say that John O. has had  a change of heart. What has caused  him to be so fond of is'job?  Somebody ought to invent a barometer so that politicians' could tell  just what way the voter would jump  in the event of an election. But, as  Sir John used to say life had two  \mcertainties���������an election and a  horserace. It may be that .John 0.,  the old political war-horse that he  is, has decided that it will be best  to put off the evil day���������election day  ������������������as long as possible. He finds it  hard to believe, as the slow oak said,  and he wants three-years' to do it  in.  ' " 'I think wo have in'British Columbia about 100,000 motorists, and  if Lliey would say to us that they  wore willing Lo carry a two orW.hreo  cent a gallon gasoline tax, we would  then bo prepared to commence tho  building of -the road.' "  "The Premier said that on his  visit to the inferior he was boseigeu  by people urging that the missing  link be constructed. 1-Jo explained  to them thai it was largely a matter  pf finance."  The same premier, who now c.e-  cribes tho legitimate demands of  the motorists of B. C. as ���������'postering,"  a short time ago dismissed the subject, when pressed lor an answer, by  saving thai he did not know what  the minister ot public works intended to do in tlie matter.  In discussing the financial phase  of the question why docs he not tell  us what became of the money , that  was voted nearly two years ago for  this project and also what proportion of the license fees collected  from the .100,000 motorists of B. C.  (which represents' a' tidy sum) ift  spent on our roads and. how much  in the sink hole at Victoria?  Expert that he is on railway matters, wc are forced to the conclusion that he hates the smell of gasoline.���������Princeton Star.  A CtU'VWS  TIME  THE HAPPY DAYS  It is estimated that about 500,000  will see President Harding in Vancouver today. This means that  thousands of people from across the  line will visit B. C. What a grand  opportunity it would be for them to  see the Eraser Valley in all its  beauty and glory, but as these people  are used to paved roads, few of  them will take in the sights on the  north and south side of the river, as  probably most of them have enough  ups and downs in life without the  repetition on the roads' on the north  or south side of the river. But nevertheless it is a grand opportunity to  advertise the Fraser Valley���������if we  were prepared for it.  The  next   few  weeks    will  be    a  critical- time for    Western    Canada.  One of (he greatest    crops in  '   the  history of the Dominion is ripening  and   farmers    and     merchants     over I  three-provinces' at least are holding j  their breath  for fear some    accident.;  may mar the fair outlook.      Carada '  has often  counted her cereal '.nick- '  en i before they were hatched .'.nd has  seen her hopes    dashed    h'J  hail    or  drought or drying winds cr rain    in  harvest  time.       These a,ie    possible  dangers, this year, of     course,    but  there  is' no   likelihood   that,  even  if  the   worst   comes,'  th',y   can   destroy  more than a small    portion    of the  crop.    ICvcry day safely passed adds  to  the probability of a bumper harvest.  Manitoba is looking for a crop  equal to that of last year. Saskatchewan believes hers will be better,  while Alberta expects to exceed the  phenomenal yield of 1915 and is  talking of 175,000,000 bushels of  Avheat fiom her fields alone. Even  discounted a little, these expectations if realized, will mean a prairie  yield' of 400,000,000 bushels. Sir  Henry Thornton's' estimate i&  500,000,000 but as there are orrly  some 20,000000, acres under wheat,  that is, by many, considered too hign.  Alberta and the western half of  Saskatchewan form the zone which  Vancouver hopes to serve as a wheat  outlet. This area will produce almost half the prairie crop aud Vancouver's' share will be so great that,  if poured-into the port, it would  bury the waterfront fathoms deep in  golden grain. Vancouver handled  less than 200,000,000 bushels of  wheat-of the J 922 crop and is proud  of her record. She modestly hopes  to handle 50,000,000 bushels this  year. The quantity offering is so  enormous that the need of speeding  up facilities is apparent, if the city  is to become the real port for the  most westerly wheat fields.  A great crop means prosperity to  Vancouver in more ways than one.  Every bushel that comes this way  leaves, it is estimated, about seven  cents for ships' repairs, fittings,  lumber, labor and ships' stores'.  Every extra dollar paid for grain,  too, means so much added to .the buy  ing capacity of- the prairie farmer,  and the farmer's prosperity has always been reflected, more or less,  to the Coast. Besides all this, there  is the advertising. Nothing succeeds  like success. The news of a bumper  crop in Canada will do more for immigration than many pamphlets and  much exhortation by agents, and  Vancouver, as a great and growing  port can not fail to benefit from a.  new tide of settlers.

British $������lumbiu Telephone Company  SAYS  PREMIER  HATES  SMELL OP 15.  C. GASOLINE  Speaking at the ceremony held  last Saturday in connection with the  opening of the Banff-Windermere  highway, John Oliver, premier of  British Columbia, is reported as  saying:  Dr. King, formerly minister of  public works had come to him with  a map of the province, pointing out  all road connections necessary to  be made. All of these, he said, were  now completed with one notable exception, the missing link of the  trans-provincial. The Premier said  he had been pestered by motorists  to make some announcement as to  this, so he would do so. If the motorists of the province (whom the  Premier estimated to number 100,-  000) would consent to a three cent  tax on gasoline, his government  would build the road."  "The great trans-provincial highway across British Columbia, linking up the Pacific Highway down  tlie Coast and giving the means for  thousands of motorists to holiday  here, can be readily completed if  motorists would have a gasoline tax  brought into effect here.  "This was made clear at the Parliament Buildings upon the return of Premier Oliver from the interior where he took part in the  opening of the new Banff-Windermere  Highway.  "Harvey M. Toy, chairman of the  California State Highway Commission, who was at the ceremony at  Kootenay Landing advised me that  they had one million motor cars' in  their state, and that they collected  from a tax of two cents a gallon on  gasoline nine million dollars a year,"  the Premier said.  "Those, were the happy days."  .'Frequently we hear the foregoing  expression from the mouth of the  man who now rides in his $2500  touring car instead of a $150 buggy,  as of yore. He speaks of the days,  perhaps when mother broke her back  over the old-fashioned washtub;  wen father accomplished his morning ablution at the pump trough;  when father accomplished his morn-  ed the dread diphtheria and he had  to ride four or five miles to get the  doctor who had never heard of antitoxin. Possibly he referred to the  time when it required days, even  weeks, to inform loved ones of the  invasion of the angel of death; when  journeys were made on horseback or  a bouncing stage. Days when the  young swain, after toiling weary  hours' with the hoe six days a week,  took his best girl riding on Sunday  and enjoyed it���������sure they enjoyed,  themselves���������they were rugged and  they were happy.  But today, the mother is none the  less happy in    the    possession    of a    power washer and an    electric  iron;      ���������������������������.       hky^tit*  father has had    installed, a    modem cirnnrPT Tr������ tav  hot-water system, and at night,    in- SUBJECT TO 1A\  stead of straining the eyes in the dim  light of a tallow    candle,    we    read  the  news of yesterday  oi  thousands  of miles away, by the bright rays' of  an  electric light.  When little sister or brother is  taken ill, we call the doctor on the  telephone and he jumps into his auto  and in a moment he is at the bedside  ready to administer the' serum,  which, in the great majority of cases  effects the cure and saves a life. Today we telegraph our loved ones in  emergency and in an hour or two  even though the width of a continent  lies between, they have heard our  news���������good or bad. They rush to us  on cushioned seats on ~ fast flying  steam or electric trains. The happy  country boy flies over tlie well-paved  roads' with his sweetheart, " whoso l  father now operates modern agricultural  implements.  Friends, these are the happy days.  OTTAWA, July 17.���������The customs  and excise department announce  that, effective August 1, letters and  post cards acknowledging payments  of $10 and upward are subject to  the stamp tax on receipts. The department has ��������� established regulations' by which business firms are en������  abled to have receipts stamped by  means of a die.  Pride generally empties the lire  of everything of which one may  rightly be proud.  DARKENING HOUSE  ONE METHOD TO  STOP TOE PICKING  "OLIVERS   "STATESMANSHIP"  W. J. BoAvser created an unusual  degree of enthusiasm in the speaking  tour made last week through the  southern portions of Yale and Kootenay.-The Conservative leader is not  willing to concede to Premier Oliver  the credit for initiating the campaign'  for better freight rates back to 1910,  when acting on behalf of the ��������� Conservative administration of Sir Richard McBride, the question of better  freight rates was initiated at Ottawa  by W. A. Macdonald, K. C, now Mr.  Justice Macdonald of tlie supreme  court bench, That the fight for  better rates was not continued by the  Conservative administration was due  solely to conditions brought about by  the   war.���������Prince  George  Citizen.  To prevent toe picking during the  first three or four days, Mr. C. Good,  provincial poultry instructor for tli 3  Lower Mainland, recommends that  the southern windows' be either  thinly coated with lime water to  which a little blue has been added,  or covered with blinds when the sun  is shining in on them. Until the  first meal, the brooder house should  be darkened.  CANADA'S  GREAT WILDERNESS  PARK  IVEEM-EN  IN  RAD MOOD  The commercial honey producers  of the province have entered a vigorous protest against the action of the  provincial department of agriculture  in its handling of the foul brood situation. Beemen point out that the  department has made an absolute  failure of every method adopted for  disease control and demand that  modern methods', such as are used in  the other provinces and the. States,  be used. They also ask that the inspectors be trained  men.  Bee inspection has cost the taxpayer as high as $10,000 a year and  the honey producers place the loss to  the industry, through the action of  Mr. Barrow's department in wholesale burning of apiaries, at around  $50,000 a year.���������Kitsilano Times.  Jasper  National    Park  is  rapidly  coming into its own as    one of    the  foremost tourists    of    the    Canadian  Rockies.    Although it was set aside  in 1907 and is the      largest of    the  great playgrounds    administered    by  the Government of Canada, the lack  of adequate accommodation for visitors until last year, has prevented  its use on the part of the public in  proportion to its importance. Since  its reservation the National Parks'  authorities have steadily carried on  development work in the construction of roads and rails. Two years  ago the Canadian National Railways  erected the first hotel���������Jasper Park  Lodge, which was the scene of the recent convention of British Columbia  newspapermen. The hotel is on the  shores of beautiful Lac Beauverc.  This is a bungalow camp composed  "of a central building surrounded by  a group of rustic chalets which serve  as sleeping quarters. The immense  popularity of this accommodation  last year resulted in extensions xor  this season which will provide rcn  250 guests and plans are being made  for similiar chalets in Tonquin valley  1  and at Maligrie lake: ...

Apiaries' Act, commend the action of  the department of agriculture and  the department's inspectors, Mr. A.  W. Finlay and Mr. J. W. Sheppard,  for. the prompt manner in which they  have handled the outbreak of American foul, brood in the Fraser Valley,  and.earnestly request the department  to continue in this endeavor to give  proper���������-"protection' to the bee-keeping Industry which, they assert, is  rnaking rapid .progress' in the province, by a'still, moire rigid inspection  and enforcement of the Apiaries Act.  This,- in short, is; the resolution, that'  was approved at the demonstration  m'ee'tfng.'Tield lit" the'apiary of Mr. W.  H. Turnbull, "Sullivan station," on'Sat-,  urday afternoon, when there was not  only a representative: gathering of  members'.of.' the 'honey producers'  society;but four, members of the agricultural . committee ...of. the legislature, namely, A." D. Paterson, J. A.  Catherwood, John McRae and Rev.  Thomas ' Menzies, attended not 6nly  to observe, the up-to-date bee-keeping, methods on this farm, but to consult with the memberS'-of the protection of the industry. In addition  there was , present Mr. Wilfred  Smith,-in, whose.hives foul brood  was located by the inspectors, tho  destruction of several of whose hives  has created not a little stir among  'home with  him.  the bee-keeping fraternity. Then to  add spice to the proceedings,. Mr.  Lynn Browh'^of the Kitsilano Times,  member of the rival bee-keepers' association, was on hand to denounce  the act as "pernicious, unfair, vicious  and contrary to all the principles of  the British common law." His impassioned speech against the act did  not, however, change one vote from  endorcing it, but increased the sentiment of approval and evoked a spirited protest from Mr. A. Kerr, whose  bees' had suffered from infection  from Mr. Smith's foul .brood hives,  and ��������� from a Whatcom County lady,  Mrs. Ronolfson, who declared that  B. C. methods and legislation regarding the protection of bee-keeping was  five years ahead of what they had in  Washington state.  Mr. J. W. Winson, president of  the association, quoted Prof. Slocum  of Whatcom County producers as  making a similiar statement at Sumas recently, after an "inspection of  Canadian bee-keeping methods, and  this advance was attributed to the  fact that B. C. had enlisted the services of scientific men in the regulav  tion of bee-keeping.  Rev. Mr. Menzies, after acknowledging the interest he had in the  demonstrations carried out that da>.  declared that if there were any improvements needed in the act, he  would be glad to hear of them, and  he would look more carefully into  the operation. It had been based on  the Ontario act, and the endeavor  has been to evolve one for B. C in  the best interests of the bee-keepers.  As in the case of smallpox, the foul  brood disease must be dealt witu  drastically.  Mr. J. A. Catherwood asserted that,  the bee-keepers could depend on tlie  legislature to make every effort    to  eradicate foul,brood.      He was out  to get pointers.  All the Dominions are anxious to  have the British farmer as a settler.  The problem is: is there enough of  him to go around?���������Stratford Herald.  THE  CO-OPERATOR;S  CREED  The'following is taken' from'tho  .:reed drawn up by Paul-.V. Maris,  Director Extension Service, Oregon  Agricultural College:'  1. I believe firmly that modern  venditions demand a better system of  'marketing farm products    and  that  this' can  be brought about only    by  nteiligent   co-c^-ration   among  producers.1 - :     -  2. 1 understand that marketing  mi braces part or all of the following  functions, depending somewhat upon  :he nature of the commodity:  1,  assembling;     2,     grading    and  .tanclardizing; 3, packing    4, proces-  'ng;   hr transporting;   G,  storing;   7,  mincing;   8,  distributing.  And  1  believe, in  co-operation   for  lie purpose of performing these functions efficiently. Economical and or-  .'erly marketing is the object sought  ather than    speculation    and    pricj  control.  3. I know that fundamental  dianges must come slowly and that  hoy will be fraught with grave difficulties'.  4. I expect co-operative enterprises to be opposed by agencies  villi which they come in competition.  C know that this opposition will assume the form of bait prices that  vill be held up to tempt me and  ;ause me to become dissatisfied, but  understanding the motives back' of  -hose, I will remain constant' y  ; toad fact and loyal.  5.' .1 know it will require time to  ret a co-operative business properly  >rgani'/.ed and running smoothly and  -.hat if f am unwilling to overlook  ���������some mistakes and bear with my organization unavoidable adversity, I  Had better conserve my. time an 1  means by refusing to be part of- a  co-operative   enterprise.      ,.  6. I know that trust and confidence are the keystones of co-operation. Hence I will participate in the  selection of men to direct the affairs  of my association in whom I " have  confidence, and I will at least grant  them a fair and considerate hearing  before condemning their action!!'."  7.    T realize that many of Ihe benefits of co-operation  are  and immeasurable,    and  intangible-  iliat    tliov  will accrue alike to members and  non-members. Non-mombors ~" wi'I:  frequently receive better prices than  members, but these facts will no:  shake my confidence, nor cause nv  to withdraw my support of co-operation-.  8. I will read all official communications sent to members and  attend meetings for the consideration of the business of my organization. I will vote on all "measures  submitted to members by ballot. 1  will offer constructive criticism freely and demand the highest- possible  degree of efficiency and 'service.   ���������  9. , I will realize that destructive  criticism is no value and that it  imposes unnecessary expense upon  the organization: I will refrain,  therefore, from using it.  teams of four students from any University or Agricultural    College and  hroe classes for individuals.  POSSIBILITIES OF RASPBERRY  STOCK JUDGING  COMPETITION  Several years ago the Vancouver  Exhibition Association inaugurated  a .competition for Stock Judging  among the boys and girls of the province. For a number of years this  competition was confined to a number of boys who were tlie guests of  the Association during Fair week.  These boys were selected, one from  each district in the Province. Several years ago this system was changed  on the recommendation of the head  of the Animal Husbandry Department of the University of British  Columbia, who suggested that regular competitive classes be inaugurated. Following this suggestion the  Exhibition Association offered prizes  in five classes in Live Stock judging,  and one in Poultry judging., These  competitions excited a wonderful  degree of interest among the boys  and girls of the whole Province, particularly the class offering a prize  for a team of three boys . and girls  representing any one Agricultural  District. There are also classes    for  itaspherics   are'  here���������or   coming,  "ced  raspberries.    That  seems  to  be  .vhat everybody means when wr> say  raspberries'.    If we mean black raspberries, why we say black    raspber-  or black caps.. Here are some of the  good  ways of preparing raspberries:  Jellied     Raspberries���������Rub     raspberries   through   a     sieve,     sweeten  heavily and let stand until the sugar  is dissolved.   Add a package of soaked and dissolved gelatine to a quart  of the fruit, mould, chill, and serve  with whipped cream.  Rice and Raspberry Pudding���������Fill  a baking dish nearly    full of    rasp- ���������  berries,  sweeten   to taste and   cover,  with rice boiled in  milk and sweetened.    Bake until rice is brown' and  serve hot in same dish.  Raspberry Blanc-Mange���������Thicken  two cups of cream whipped stiff.  Turn into a mould, cover, and bui/  "in salt and ice for. four hours.  Raspberry' Charlotte ��������� Arrange  small sponge cakes in a serving dish,  spread -with crushed sweetened  raspberries, ' cover with whipped  cream and serve. The stiffly beaten  whites of six eggs mixed with enough  sugar to make a good meringue ma/  be used instead of cream.  Raspberry Shortcake���������Sift a  quart of flour with four even teaspoons of baking powder and a pinch  of salt. Work into it a cup of fat'  and add enough milk to make a soft  dough. Shape into two flat caes, put  together with butter between and  bake. Pull apart and fill the cover  with crushed and sweetened raspber-  '���������' Conjugal Repartee  Women who marry smart' men are  rarely happy.���������Memphis Commercial  Appeal.

It is more  than two and one-third billions  today.  Our debts have greatly increased��������� our revenues must  also go up. The farmer has to  bear his share of the increased  burden. That means he must  increase his revenue.  Complaint has been heard  that farmers under present  conditions in Canada cannot  make farming pay. And yet  many thousands of Canadian  farmers do make it pay.  How Is It Done?  Patient and industrious "carry  on" will do wonders, but something more is needed. Top often  "patient industry" is coupled with  "dull persistance" in poorly  thought out methods.  Farmers today more than ever,  must plan ahead, as well as "plug  along"; indeed they have no option, if they wish to succeed.  Co-ordination of head and hand  will mean real success. .Farming  in Canada has paid and pays now  on many farms. It can be made to  pay'on almost, every farm. Canadian agriculture has passed through  low profit-making eras successfully in the past and can do so  again.  Crop Returns Should be Increased  On the Central Experimental Farm at  Ottawa some crop costs and crop profits  in 1922 as contrasted with all-Ontario  average crop costs and crop profits are  given'below. The all-Ontario figures are  in brackets:  Cost per acre  Hay $21.13 ($13.50)  Corn for  Forage  $47.50 ($33.75)  Oats      $26.47 ($19.32)  Similar results can be shown from the Dominion  Experimental Farms in every province.  Profit per acre  $11.21 ($5.09)  $10.38 ($2.86)  $ 7.33 (    .04)  Experimental Farm crops are  sometimes claimed to be produced  at too great cost. Thousands of  experiments, however, show, that  increased cropping costs wisely  applied up to a reasonable point  always increase crop profits. This  is true on the Experimental Farm  ������������������and on any and every farm.  With the increased cost of production, the higher standards of  Hying now prevailing cannot be  maintained by poor farm management, "boarder" milkers, scrub  beeves, poor quality hogs -or non-  profitable hens.  That even under present con'di-.  tions profits may be,made is testified by many skilful^observant and  non-plunging farmers, who believe  more in the policy of "slow, but  sure" and "pay as you go" rather  than speed,- with excessive borrowing and the often consequent  disaster.  The results, on our Experimental  ���������Farms also bear testimony to the  value   of  thorough,  skilful  work.  t   The Farmer Must  Manufacture  But crops, alone are not enough.  The farmer must change his crops  into less bulky and more high-  priced products���������milk, pork, beef,  mutton, poultry, etc.  With fair yielding cows dairying  shows good profits in Canada. The  average cow has increased her  yield 25% in the last ten years.  She can quite readily go up another 25% and more, and there's  where the profit lies. Better feeding, better selection and better  breeding will do the job���������feed,  weed, breed.  To do better feeding means  better pastures and more generous  supplies -of palatable roughage.  Short rotations including clover and  ensilage crops (corn, sunflower,  pea and oat, etc.) will provide feed  in abundance for both summer and  winter. The experiments and investigations which the Dominion  Department of Agriculture have  carried on prove that farming  scientifically and systematically  undertaken will pay profits. The  records and particulars of such  work in every province are available to the Canadian farmer;  Aro yon growing grain, or producing  Becd or interested In fruit?

The imperial  grand president was instructed to  forward the resolution to the proper  authorities.  Following is the text of the resolution "That this great meeting, representative of all the grand lodges of  the British Empire, demand His Majesty's government to withdraw im*  mediately the British envoy to the  Vaican, in view of the fact that diplomatic relations with the Pope are  an infringement of the constitution  and a grave menace to the welfare of  the  British  Empire."  London, England, was chosen as  the venue for the 1.926 sessions' of  the council, a cordial invitation having been extended by the Imperial  Grand   Lodge  of  England.  The whole slate of officers was  elected by acclamation, Sir James H.  Stronge of Ireland being re-elected  imperial grand master and Frederick  Dane of Toronto, formerly imperial grand vice-president, succeeding  Rev. David Ness' of Glasgow, Scotland, as imperial grand president.  Other officers of the council are-  Past imperial grand presidents,  Robert Burns of Toronto, Col. R. H.  Wallace, C.

For this  season the evaporating and juic-j  .plants are being installed.  The Hatzic plant will have a capacity of three tons of fresh berries  per day. The fruit is,placed on trays  in a room heated to a temperature  of about 125 degrees Fahrenheit until well dried. The heat is supplied  by a series of steam pipes arranged  in such a way. as to maintain an even  The dries product is .then put up .in  half pound and pound cartons ready  for the market.When, the housewife  wishes to use them, they are soaked  over night in water/ during which  time they swell up and assume much  the same appearance as the fresh  berry. Later in the season the dehydrating plants will dry prunes.  The juice plant at Clayburn will  have a capacitiy of five tons of berries per day and will turn out about  200 gallons of loganberry juice pet-  day.  It is-unfortunate that the evapor-  atiihg and juice plants were not in  operatio earlier in the season.  About 1.5 per cent, of the berries tln&  year have had to be destroyed on  account of mould.  As-heat quickly kills the mould,  the damage fruit could have been  saved by puffing it in the evaporator  as soon as the growth was detected.  The damage fruit could also liavp  been salvaged by putting it through  tho presses at the juice plant. As this  mould is somewhat unusual, none o\'  the companies handling small fruits  expected to have to do any salvaging,  with the result that they wore unprepared and the affected fruit hao  to , be destroyed with considerable  loss.  It is planned to extend the market in Europe for jam stocks. Meantime, in order to- make the best of  conditions obtaining here and on tho  Canadian prairies, raspberries and  loganberries are to be dehydrated ai  two plants owned and operated by  the' union���������Chilliwack and Hatzic.  The Chilliwack plant is due to start  dehydrating on Monday, and Hatzi':  will also be operating on (he new  priciple, so far as B. C. is concerned, within a few days.

Those'dis  tricts in Western Canada, which have  for some years suffered from lack  of rain in June have had, up to' the  present time, an abundance of mohv-  ture, with the result that at the, end  of June the crops generally looked  healhy and vigorous. Given normal  wether during July, a crop above tht.  average is probable. The heavy  rains in districts subject to insect  posts have minimized the danger of  loss from this cause. The prelimin'*-  ary official estimates show that the  area sown to wheat in Canada iiT- 32i-  153,100 acres, slightly less than' in  1922, but comparing favourably with  Ihe annual average for tlie five-year  period 191.7 to 1921, which was i8.-  54 6,803 acres. In the three prairie  provinces the wheat acreage' this  year is 20,i)9g,700, or 227,748 acres  loss than in 1922. In Manitoba and  Saskatchewan there is a- slight d'd-'  crease but in the province of Alberta an increase is reported. Reports.eft'  other field crops are also decidedly'  reassuring. The growth of liay find  clover is luxuriaint, and' the condition of the pastures is now excellent',  In Ontario and Quebec and in $ few  districts in the West the pastureij  were backward until rain fell' late in  June.  Business conditions Have not^  changed materially during; the paJ3t;  month. There is, however, incrsased]  confidence as the result of the; continued, good outlook for the crops-..  While the greater part, of our exports-  are derived from the farm, there- is-  every reason to anticipate that the'  products of our forests and mines'  Avill, during the balance of this' year,  constitute a larger proportion than-  hitherto of the merchandise' market  ed abroad. During May the paper  mills produced ' 110,115 tons of  newsprint, or 10,000 tons more than  in May of last year, the daily production for that month being 4,084 tons.  Exports of newsprint for May amount  ed to 98,901 tons, bringing the total  for the five months of the current  year up to 457,913 tons, as compared with 370,861 tons in 1922, and  277,571 tons in 1920.  An indication of the growth in the  output of the mines of Ontario is  given by the value of. metalliferous  products for the first three months  of the current year, which was $9,-  241,853, as compared with $7,227,-  372 in 1922. This increase is  largely due to the increased output  of nickel in the Sudbury area. Ontario's gold output for the first quarter of the current year was slightly  below that of 1922, owing entirely  to a' shortage of electric power. The  winter snow-fall was light in the  gold-mining areas, and this, together  with a late spring, greatly reduced  the volume of water available for  power, purposes. Electrical devlop-  ment work is, however, in progress,  which will ensure a steady supply  of additional power, and some of the  mines are already adding materially  to their working staff with a view  to taking full advantage of this as  soon as available.���������Canadian Bank  of Commerce Monthly Letter.
