KAMLOOPS.—The  Kamlqops  Wool  Growers'   Association,   at   a   meeting  this  week  arranged  to  have  all   the  wool    produced    in    this    section    of  British    Columbia    properly ;'graded  in future.    Assurances have been received   that  if  the  wool   clip  of  the  interior   of   the   province   is  properly  graded in future,  tlie entire clip can  be sold much earlier in the year and  better  prices  to   the   producer.     The  total wool   produced last season   was  52,000  pounds  as  against  only  10.000  pomuls in the previous season.    The!  growers   expect   to   get   between   40  and  4o cents a pound for their wool  as   soon   as   it  is   graded   and   ready  for^; sale,     bout   40   per  cent,   of   the  wool    produced    in    Canada   can    be'  handled in the Dominion, but the balance has to go to the United States,  owing .to    the    fact    that    Canadian  plants   are   riot   equipped   to   handle  some of the grades.

There were over 15,-  0000   issued   in   that   time   with   an  aggregate value of nearly $31,000,000.  The increase is all the more remarkable    because   it   is    tlie   -first   real  gain  over a  similar, period   reported  by  Bradstiteets   since   January*   1917.
