This was the  outcome of considerable correspon-  & dence that-has passed to and fro bc-  ..tween Mr..Harry Beach of the Iving-  ������ Beach Mfg. Co., and his brother, who  represents some "of the leading manufacturing men in the British Isles.  In the first place Mr. Beach, wrote  his brother, telling him the enormous  amount of berries grown in (.his district and pointing out that them was  some 2,000,000 pounds of cold process pack available at the prpsent  time. The cablegram quoted above,  tells the story in a nut shell of the  success,, that Mr. Reach attained in  trying to find a readv market, for this  class of produce. But. - since the re-  . ceipt of the above wire, Mr. Beach  has written bis brother, pointing out  the poignant fact that the cost of ship  ping will mean Sv* lb. en l^.

The subject of pigs is an engrossing one, if  one only stops Lb consider it. 0. Henry (.ells  us thai "pigs is pigs" and he'was right. For  from the time,that Christopher Columbus set  out from the land of bull fights and onions Lo  discover Lhe land that has become so dry that;  the inhabitants want to give it back tp Lhe Indians, until the' present.day, pigs have just  been pigs and no more.  r But although Lhe rising generation is being  Laught that a pig is a lazy animal of Lhe domestic kind who like father takes a nap after  he eats, there, arc more branches Lo the pig  family tree than one. The forefathers of the  ' family Snide was called the Asiatic hog. This  old fellow was a handsome animal, but history  fails to .tell us what his coat-of-'arms looked  like. ���������   ;  Then  the off-spring of this earliest settlor  wandered to countries new and later on three  other  species  were  discovered   in   India,   Ihe  Malayan region and West. Africa. These were  ' all of wild nature and sowed their seeds in a  reckless manner and-were always in bad re-  ���������' pnte -with the old  folks.  But as father time  grew older, the pig history changed to such an  extent that a new   volume has Lo be  written.  Nowadays all   known breeds of swine may be  divided into two groups: the European hog, a  descendant oAhe wild  boar  and  tlie Asiatic  pigs, presumably descended  from the  Indian  wild boar.   And it is   these two  groups   that  , are interesting to study.    In    Great    Britain  there were apparently two native breeds���������the  old English'hog and the breed found in the  Scotch Highlands.    From these    two    breeds  have' sprung' a  varied  mixture, some of the  descendants finding their way out Lo Canada  and the United States.      This branch of the  pig. family is divided up    into a    number    of  .  groups and are known as   Yorkshires,    Berk-  shires, Poland-Chinas,   Jersey Reds,    Durocs  and the 13. C.    In England Lhe Yorkshires are  very popular, as white swine    are    generally  preferred to other kinds.    It is probably from  one of Lhe earliest breeds of    Yorkshires    or  Derbyshires, as some refer Lo them, that the  13. C. pig was bred.    Among the more important characters of this branch of the pig family are the presence of an elongated mobile  snout, which terminates in a disc-like surface  bearing the nostrils, lie is very hairy all over  and lias a strong tendency to be gregarious.  Tie is a fierce fighter and  when in  action his  bristles stick out in menacing fashion. He is  a different type in many ways from ihe river-  hog or boschvarks and is often hunted for the  sport of the thing,  but has  proven  a tough  customer to down    as the hottest    of   shots  sometimes have little or no effect on him as  he has a hide as tough as a rhinocerous.  ,0f course tlie evolution of the pig has its remarkable features. In olden days ihe pig was,  as much a .member of the average family as  the 'dog.       Especially  was  Lhist true on   the  Emerald  Isle, where they kept, the pig in the  parlor, or on the deck of the old out-riggers.  N'ow-a-days-. Mr. Pig has a domicile of his own  in   which  he eats, sleeps and  fights.   But because this has come about in later years, people should   not   conjure up an   idea, that   the  lordly porker has lost    his    caste.    No    such  thing.    During the ..past week "Mr. Squealer"  has won an   honored place around the hojnes  of the "fried and true" and if the words    of  the''"Philosopher ���������.Jonathan" are lo be taken  seriously, the next few months will see more  pigs in captivity than there are caribou in the  'north.    It will mean that the shoe-shiner, the  ribbon cleric, the   grocerynian    and    doctors,  lawyers, merchant chiefs will    forsake   their  chosen vocations and devote the remainder of  their hitherto misspent lives, to the nobler art  of raising pigs.    And when one   looks    back  through the pages of history, the pig has played an important part,    in the reign of George  ill. Lhe porker was hailed into court; and fined  by (.he ''beak" for trespass and an such occasions lie 6ocupio.fl a more   prominent 'space in  (lie (lock than* the lowly imbiber of sparkling  brews.    Take Biblical history for an instance  of (he popularity of Le Petite Pork Chop 0. hi  those days, the "piggie" was more worshipped  llian (lie debutante,of the present age. Nowadays, I lie year's social i'n.vonlc aliicr marriage  Irods lior .dainty feet on roses at so much per  dozen.'-   But'about the time that St. Luke (no'  offence) notified Herod that, there   was   only  live loaves and (wo i'ishes to feed the hungry  the populace of thai, time  were informed  to  cafit (heir pear is in Lhe roadway, that Lhe.swine  (vulgar name for pig) might walk over them,  or words to (hat-effect.     13 Eh. of course the pig-  was taboo in some social circles, even at that  time.    The .JeAw, refused to'have'anything to  do-with him, and'later on the Mohammedans  'crossed him off .their   visiting list. But  Limes  have changed all this, and for many   a   year  now,.rt.he pig has played a prominent part in  Lhe commercial life of   Lhe - community.      He,  has been, harbored, fed and reverenced, until  such time as he became so ungainly fa I, that  Lhe populace would pay fair prices (o partake  of some o'i his   edible   sections'. ..Prior to-the"  war, he meant, meat for the farmer, although  at that, lime, pig was,pig and pork was,.pork,  'notwithstandingI'lhe fact that   Nelson's   Encyclopaedia says that pork is what, remains  after the animal is  killed and .the sides and  back arc taken out.    Then came    along   Lhe  European struggle and  like Lhe resL of good  Canadians, Ees jyiajeste, the pig   offered himself for service, irrespective of the. fact that  his education had not. been neglected.       He  was pressed',into Lhe service and Lhe best, he-  could give was sent overseas to i'e&.\ (he gallant lads that elect our parliamentarians.   Bui  lie  was  cussed  and   discussed   on   all   fronts,  mainly on account of the small portion of him  that arrived on the breakfast plate.    But after  nearly five years of    strife,- the pig has  come  back into his own.    Perhaps he may not have  - the pleasure of sporting an emblem showing'  that his father or sister did. something  "over  there," stil.l he is resting serene in the   knowledge (hat the premier of British Columbia,   is  for him, first last and all the   time.   He wor- .  ries, not about the    prestige his   forefathers  -gained centuries ago, nor, does he care a darn  about th'e cost of feeding,  .because he has become a co-_aily of the  managing-director of a  suffering public, so eats and sleeps at cost   of  about $3.00 per month per each,    irregardless.  And how he has no fear of   getting shut off at  an early age because as time   goes on the pig-  gievpopulation will increase to such .an  extent  under the new fashion regime.that pork prices will be nil and void, because-,,,outside of his  boss there will be nobody to '"devour his tasty  parts.   Buthe   still lias' a ghost   hour" of fear,  that any minute he may be shorn-of his bristly   j  hair in order that a    suitable   brush   may be   j  made that will lather up the beard of Old Fa-   j  ther Deception so   that, the hand of fate   may   j  more easily trim it off at an   early date.   And   !  even in    scholastic   circles, the pig has holed   j  his way into the front   rank.   The other day,   ������������������  one of the teachers at the summer school  pi.it  the following question to the scholars:    John  and .lames, two   brothers, aged   thirteen and  fifteen respectively, have taken   their  Scotch  collie, Rover, out for a rabbit hunt.   While go-  Jng up a hill the dog'   discovers a"rabbit at   a  point two hundred feet to the   right   and two  hundred feet farther up   the hill.     Rover immediately gives chase, running for the rabbit  in a straight line.   Both run in the same direction, which is up grade.   When the dog reaches the point where he first   spied!the , rabbit,  the rabbit, makes a sudden   turn of ninety degrees to "the right and   again   runs   straight  ahead, this lime on a down grade, running the  same distance as traveled    from the   starling  point to the first turn.   Reaching this distance  he again turns suddenly, this time   ninety degrees to the left, and again runs the same distance, up grade.   All the ��������� while   that the clog  remains in pursuit the rabbit keeps zigzagging  in this manner, 'every time the rabbit, makes  one of his sudden   turns the dog falls   behind  fifty feet, by  reason of   overrunning the line  of pursuit.    On    the up.  grade the dog    runs  twenty percent slower than the rabbit, and on  the down grade he runs fifty per   cent faster  than the   rabbit.   Now. if the dog  runs , two  hundred yards a minute up grade and the rab-  bft runs eighty per cent as fast up grade as the  dog runs down grade, how much will it cost to  purchase a square meal for a hog on Chrismas  day? A and although no pupil could answer the  riddle it is ���������apparent that the hog, even, is not  ���������to be forgotten on   Christinas day.   Perhaps,  after all, the suggestion of the Premier,    that  many a man, would be better off   raising hogs  and frying to live off his fellow man, contains  more truth than fiction. One good thing about  the wholesale   movement   back to the   farm,  would be tremendous increase of the   demand  for overalls and  pigs.   Of course   some   men  would take any pair of overalls presented, but  /would they insist jon getting land   guaranteed,  to grow hogs. There are several points to this  that are worthy of  consideration.   One might  insist on land. that, would   produce . pigs for  pork chops.   Another might   desire a site on  which to produce pigs for bacon,   while   still  -<=te*  FOUR MINUTES'TO COMPLETE CALLS'  TO VANCOUVER ISLAND , '  Have you livied lhe long distance telephone service between the mainland and Vancouver Island  lately?

The public and high schools  throughout Ihe province will re-open  for (lie fall and ^ wilder term on  Tuesday morning, September filh and  teachers and .scholars alike will be  bard at-work once more by (he end  of tbe week. During the summer  vacation all tbe schools of the  district have been well aired and repairs made where necessary and lhe  boys and girls will enter cheery  rooms on Tuesday a. m.  Several changes have been made  in Ihe teaching staff of lhe district  and a few new faces will be seen he-  hind (he������foa<dicrs desks this fall.

There has been an over supply of  Washington Bartlett pears on* the  market Ibis week', and as many of  them are commencing to turn ripe,  prices slipped down, as low at- $2.CO  per case.  Some first class Pink Meat melons  from Peach land arrived on the market this week. These are becoming  very popular with the Calgary buy-  eis.  The first shipment of Italian Prunes arrived    during the   .week - from  n,,,, ��������� Washington:  I hey were a    little    on  the green side.

Oi" course these  matters could no doubt bo satisfactorily arranged'by the Department ol' Agriculture and  il" (he demand was large enough, a correspondence course in hog-raising could be made a  'part oi' (he curriculum of the education depart  ment. And the clearing of land might be han-  ,dlGil with lit tie cost through' the   medium   of  pigs. The 13. C. hog with his elongated snoul  could root up stumps as clean as any giant,  powder. Still another suggestion from a commercial viewpoint, would be capturing of pig  squeals i'or the manufacture of toy baloons of  which there is a ready demand at any holiday  season. So the more one looks at. the different phases of the hog-raising "business, the  more convincing is the, statement of the pvem,-  ier that (he future of the province lies with  Mr. Pig, and toward that end it behooves every  loyal citizen to buy a pair of overalls and a pig  or two'in order LhaL the effort of Mr. Oliver to  solve the problem of unemployment may nol  be wasted.

Fire from an unknown origin, totally destroyed the cabaret building  on Washington Street at an early  hour o'n Sunday morning. When the  blaze was discovered by a passerby  shortly after 3-a. m. the whole  structure was in flames and although  an alarm was at once sounded, there  was no chance to save any portion of  it.  A few men who were on the  scene within a few minures after the  alarm was rung, devoted their attention to saving the building occupied  bv Richard Bird, confectioner, and  the sidewalk and telephone poles  which repeatedly caught fire. A line  of hose was attached to a hydrant and  ;i steady stream was played on the  sidewalks and poles for over an hour.  Little .damage was done to the building owned by tbe B.
