Friday,  Oct. 10,  1913  ANNOUNCEMENT  OF   FRUIT  PACKING SCHOOLS  The department of agriculture-,vn  accordance with its policy of the  past- four years, will continue the  fruit packii.U schools during the  coming winter. The schools proved  even more popular last year than  previously and we expect tha.t there  will be a great growth in the  work this winter. It is hoped that  tliis :[-ear the schools will be.  placed in every fruit district of  the province where a sufficient num.  bcr   of   pupils   can   be   secured.  The o'l'ass of instruction furnished  by the experts employed by the de  partment, in previous years has demonstrated its efficiency in meeting  the competition of Oregon , and  Washington in fruit packing. The  experience and standing of the in-  'structors secured and the confidence  reposed in them by the Department guarantee to. the fruit growers, the highest class of instruction.  As in previous years the local  administration of the packing school  will be placed in the hands of a  responsible local' body, such as ��������� the  Farmers' Institute, the .Fruit Growers' Association, or the Board of  Trade.  ... The Department- of Agriculture pro  vides the instructor and pays his  , expenses. The department will also  bear the cost of the packing paper  the fruit and all other legitimate-  expenses, except that of the secretarial ' work, which it has been  found most- (satisfactory to leave  to local management and the  rent of the lr&U, < and its heating  and   lighting.  The   responsible     organization      in  each   case   will be   required   to guarantee   a   minim urn   of twelve pupils,  but   not   more   than   fifteen with the  proper   qualifications,   at   a   fee     of  three   dollars     each,'   to   take      the  twelve lessons of two and a ha'.f  hours  a   lesson���������the   sdhool  extending   over  the   week.    In   a   limited   number  of  districts a   double   packing school can  be   arranged   for,' in   which the min  imum guarantee will   be   twenty-four  pupils,   but   not   more   tnan 'thirty,  for   the   same   ijjmber   of   lessons.  The hall for fifteen pupils must  be at least 30 rcet by 15. fecit, and  well lighted. It must bo sufficiently heated to prevent chilling ' of the  fingers of the packers, and to prevent   freezing of   the  fruit   at right.  The department will as far as  possible, use local fruit At time  of making application for the pac  king school, you are requested to  reserve fruit at U\c .rate of two-  and a half boxes to three boxes a  pupil. The harder varieties, such  as Ben Davis, are preferred. Fruit  must be in good condition but  njed not be graded and none to  run under 2A- inches in diameter.  The department will pay the legitimate market price as determined by" the instructor on inspection.  If local fruit cannot be secured  the department should be expressly notified and will undertake to  secure  the   same.  The instructor will bring with  him the necessary packing tables  and fruit paper. The. Department expects that he will be met on his  arrival by some 'responsible-person  who should provide him with all  necessary information, so as to get  the school under way without loss  of   time.  It seems hardly necessary to present to you the important advantages   to   be   gained from .the packing  practical   and _thorough     instruction  in   actual   commercial   packing.  Fruit growers will gain in addition, a good deal of ��������� information  about the methods and equipment  used lyy the most progressive 'associations', also about the interpretation of the Fruit Marks' Act,  and about exhibition packing by attending the pack-jig school for information.  Pupils   who     gain   a   score   of   75  per   cttit for   efficiency in   the packing   school,   and   who   put   up.a creditable    pack    for   the    Department  prizes   the     following   autumn,   Avill  receive   a   diploma- certifyiuj; to   the  same   from   the   department.,  Yours   truly,  Wm. .E.

Fruit  Growers'   Association  The shipping season being now- a  bout concluded, I am instructed by  Mr. W. C. Ricardo, President oi  this association and chairman of  the transportation committee, to re  quest all members of the association to lay -before the transportation committee any grievance or  comments they have - on transporta  tion matters. relating to shipment  of   fruits   and   vegetables.  It is ' expected that a mcctiiJj of  the transportation-committee will  be held early dn November ) consider the cases presented by -you  An immediate reply -is, therefore  advisable    in  the secretary may get further ki-  formution from you or from others  in subs tan tiationof your case. It is  the aim of the committee to pre  sent nothing to the railway company but what will stand the test  of criticism and examination, It is  by observing this rule and investigating carefully all the cases presented to it, that this association  has boon/ able to secure -for you  "some of -the recent reductions  both freight and express tariffs,  which have this year saved the  "growers an( amount estimated at  over   $20,000  In presenting cases claiming rough  handling, over-charge, etc., you will  aid the committee. very considerably by quoting definite instances  in which the abuse occurred. The  absence of direct evidence of this  kind is a great handicap to your  case.  The     B.   C.   Fruit   Growers' Assi-  iation   has  (always   labored   to  preserve   the   same   Iriendly  spirit  between   growers and   the railway company   believing   thata spirit     of cooperation between   the   two is by far  the   most   likely    method   of   reaching   results  of   benefit  to   you     and  the   same     time,   satisfactory to the.  transportation companies. It is   this  policy     which     has    made    possible  the   mai.t/  reductions  in   rates     and  improvements  in service with  which  our   metnbes have   expressed      themselves   well   pleased.  You will .realize," however that  chances can be made in the inter  est;-; of our increasing trade.

WINSDOW,  Secreatary.  Victoria, Sept.  30th-  Early buyers at .the New,. Westminster market on Friday morning  were served the best- for although  there were a' goodly number, of vendors early - [fci the morning their  supplies were limited and were rapidly sold as a number of them  wished to sell out early so as to  visit the- grounds it being fair day  .Potatoes and poultry were plcnti  ful, although the latter did not appear on the market in large quantities until after the Chilliwack  train had arrived Potatoes were  sold in &ulk at from $12 to $11 a  ton or per sack at 75 cents. Poultry continued to remain steady in  prices. This also applied to the fair-  supply of meats both wholesale and  retail.  On account of the apple crop being ",poor this year few' boxes appeared on- the .market. The chief  varieties ' being Gravei.'jteins, Blenheim Orange aad Ontario Cookers.  The price for the higher grade being from $1.25 to $1.50 Apples us  cd for cooking were sold at five  pounds   for   a   quarter.  Blackberries became a good bit  cheaper selling at four pounds at  25 cents instead of three pounds for  25   cents   as   before.  Except    potatoes    cabbages    -were  the   chief   vegetables  to   be . seen  on  the   stalls and   were    sold   at $1.00  a   sack.  Asters sweet peas and carnations  were plentiful on the , flower stalls  Roses again made, their appearance selling at 25 cents a dozen  while - zinias were ,a new one to  b'e seen, fetching 25 cents for two  dozer.      .  < ���������  Last weeks prices prevailed on the  fish stalls where there was a fair-  supply. Eggs still remained at 50  cents a dozen- or -17-A cents wholesale Butter was sold at 40 " cents  retail   or   35  cents   wholesale.  THE BOY SCOUTS  The man who has. been well  drilled in his' youth can be easily  recognized on   the "streets,. says  the  Toronto   News.   His   figure  is  erect  order that if necessary' his ��������� sh0ll!(|cl.s    are   smiare   and - he  Iif,ts his feet and walks freely  from the hips. His , carriage forms  a pleasing contrast to the slovenly  shuffle that is all too common. Mil  ilan. drill is adopted by most instructors because drill is '&> special  study in the army, and consequently the most useful exercises can  be learned from soldiers. But it  is a mistake to assume, that youths  become imbued with the military  u-' spirit as a result of physical train  ing and exercises similar to those  used -in   the   army.  From time ' to time the Boy  Scout movement is criticised as  militarism. All boys, naturally, play  the soldier land the Red Indian,  Sir Robert Baden-Powell conceived  the idea of turning this' instinct  into good account by organizing  the games and thus disciplining the  mind and the body.- The Boy  Scout's oath may well be taken as  a guiding motto for life A scout  in his drills and exercises ��������� and his  games, and the camp lore he learns  give him a manly carriage, power  of endurance, the spirit of fairness  and a full measure of self-reliance  Esprit de corps makes a scout feel  that he must be more self-possessed, braver and more resourceful  than other boys. iWe cannot have  too   much   of   this   spirit.  There is no evidence to show  that Boy Scouts arc more trucu  cut than other boys. Indeed self-  restraint is one of the most useful  lessons they learn. Observant people must have noticed that Boy  Scouts seek glory in saving life,  in ..performing useful services such  as first aid'to the injured and in  acting with cool .��������� deliberation in em  ergciicies, rather than in battles  with   fists   or   with weapons.
