Forrester, provincial, con-?  stablo, Creston, made our city an  official call hmt Week. -  What, by tho way, lias become of  tho flnancial experts and statisticians  Who figured it out to their own satisfaction last August that the war in  Europe could not possibly last more  than throe months P  Some of the problems confronting  fruit- ^rowers were up for discussion  at the Farmers Institute meeting in  the 'Auditorium which was addi--s>__ii  by R. M. Winslow, provincial horticulturist, and J. Forsyth Smith, the  B.C. market commissioner, with O. J.  Wigen, head of the Wynndel Co-Operative Fruit Growers' Association presiding.  Mr. Smith was the first speaker and  his theme was "Car lot shipments."  He opened up on strawberries,  pointing out that the prairie points demanded about 150 carloads in 1914:     Hood  "River berries, which started to arriye  about the end of* May, captured fifty  per cent, of the trade before the B.C.  berries were available.     Spokane district berry growers were able to market thirty cars in  western Canada also.  This was partly due to the fact that  berriesfrom Washington came through  in car lots exactly when and where the .-  wholesalers wanted them, and in that  way the dealers were pretty well able  to see that at no point was there an  ovex*-supply.  Getting things down to afdollars and  cents basis Mr. Smith figured that the  Spokane berry, for which $1.40 f.o.b.  was paid the grower, would lay down  in Calgary at $2.25 with transportation and duty charges paid.     Shipped  in carloads the wholesaler could pay  the   Creston   grower  $1.85 and  still  -iaT.r������.-i *-._!������������ "Vail..-* i-iptt.-o- at s. hisher  margin of-profit.    A show o*5 figures  revealed the fact that the Salmon Arm  growers with a year'-   output of 8Q0  crates had realized an average price of  $2.85 p6r. crate. , While admitting that  fKe Creston system of express shipments had up to the present gotten  the grower better  prices,   he  urged  serious consideration bf carload niarfc-  etingT    The small lot shipping day_  are numbered.  Twenty cars of raspberries would be  required on the prairie market this  year.   This trade could be handled, he  claimed, froj_i grower direct to retailer  provided the quantities contracted for  wero shipped in good condition and on  the days required.   To worl? it this  way would necessitate an early-season  trip  over   the territory booking customers;   failing this car lot shipping-  was essential to head off U.S.  competition.    The wholesalers can get an  ample supply of American berries in  cars and Canadian  growers must get  into line.    This country's berries have  the ilaeov ivnJ are in demand.    In lea_  than carload lots they arrive in poor  shape frequently and the wholesaler is  hard put frequently to disposeof then-  hence-his indifference in  tiie '/matter.  Another comparison of express rates  showed that at  every point in  the  three "prairie provinces Creston berries  had the best of ib in transportation  charges. - ���������'      -  By way, of comforting the local  grawors a . comparison of prices prevailing in 1014 Mr. Smith stated that  extra farcy early  Jonathans nettod  Trail has just sold a block of sohool  bonds at .88.

Liist year apple crop in the states was  a humpor one (with a capital B) the  output being close to 600,000 cars while  tho normal demand was not over 200,-  000. On February 1st 20,000 cars of  apples were in stomgo at Pacific  Northweateyn States points.  Mr. Smith's liking for figures seemed to bo catching. So, much so that  Mr. Winslow, iusuwul of tiilking "Cooperative Marketing," ns announced,  started right in with a talk on British  Columbia's inability to supply but 25  per cent of Western Canada's demand  for fruit. Ho had the HtatistieH tn  show that Jn this province In 1014 the  yield of apples was but H boxus pur  tree ovor llvo years���������and In Creston  tho average was not that good���������while  at Wenatchoe, Wash, thoy got -J box-  i'hj which accounted partially for  WitNhii'uUm'H ubiHtvUiuiidorsolI Canadian produce.

"Don't be a fool," retorted Dodd,  "and make this other fellow leave hold  of me. Or else you draw the wagon  out of the trail behind that bluff." He  pointed to a group of poplars on their  left hand. "Then come here, and we  will watch and see who it is; likely  enough it it just some feKow on his  way home after a whisky spree���������but  it is possible���������"  What was possible he did not say,  hut grew silent while Hugh led the  horses behind th'3 bluff, where he  made them fast, and returned to the  side of the trail, where he crouched  down beside his uncle and Dodd.  Nearer  came    the  sound     of  the  horse,  driven at a gallop;   the light  buggv it drew fairly bounded on the 1  trail.  "They must slow down here," said  Dodd in a whisper; "this is rough  ground and it will give us a chance to  see."  In fact, near where they waited, the  huggy drew up sharply, and one of its  occupants jumped down with a lighted-  lamp in his hand.  "Hannah!" said Mr. Hetherington In  a hoarse whisper, as the light of the  lantern shone on the face of the man  carrying ii; "It is Hannah," and his  face flushed darkly with anger and indignation.  "The road dips here, my lord," they i  heard Hannah's voice saying. "I think  this will be that ravine we were warned of;  perhaps I had better lead the  horse across?"  "Very well," answered another  voice two of the unseen listeners at  once recognized as belonging to Lord  Ambroso Boustead.  "Hi! hi!" shouted Mr. fletli.*rlng.  ton, suddenly loosing his grip on Dodd  and rushing forward.  Ilnnniili turned quickly, holding up  hi* lantern, but before ho understood  what was happening the millionaire  was upon him and had knocked lilm  hoar1 over heels.

It's real bad land over  there fox* miles���������-.lot much water, and  nary a farm nor nothing."  Having delivered himself of this  opinion, Dodd became occupied with  his horses, and said no more. Mr.  Hetherington sank into his own.  thoughts of diamonds, and their manufacture; of all that that great secret  meant; of such wealth .s few human  beings have ever dreamed of, all concentrated in his hands; of his power  spread far over the earth till there  should hardly by his equal in the  whole world.  .  "And Delia,"  he   said    to  himself,  for wavninga, disregarding every precaution, heedless of all that wus suspicious, ob.f-ssed by his dream of diamonds���������diamonds.  "All the kingdoms of the world and  the glory of them," ho heard lis uncle  whisper under his breath, nnd It  seemed to Hugh that something ot tho  <r_do������v j>f ^he chase entered into his  own  blood.

Improvements  Huge    Sums to be Spent by the Company   in  the   West  This  Year  Mr. Grant Hall, the newly*appointed vice president and general manager  of western lines of the C.P.R., has  made the following statements regarding the extensive developments undertaken by the company during recent  years:  "Since  _ _35F_8_j_S'_.

But at that moment Delia, lying  awake in her bed at the hotel, was  'thinking neither of principalities and  powers, nor of Hugh, but O-ily of the  small, calm eyed young man'who had  retaliated so disconcertingly- on her  outbursts of temper. Delia had a curious notion that if she were much  with such a man, losing one's temper  would soon pall as an amusement.  Then she made up her mind she would  like to kill him, but could not hide  from herself that the early death of  this young man would appear to her  as a great misfortune.  As for Hugh, his thoughts were busy  neither with thoughts of wealth, nor  with dreams of power, nor yet with  Delia, nor of Lord Ambrose and his  man chasing their runaway horse  through the darkness and probably  getting hopelessly lost, nor even of the  dangerous errand they themselves  were engaged on. Instead, it was of  Eira that he dreamed, and of the look  lie hoped would grow upon her face  when she saw him approach. This  was his dream, and to realize it he  Would have faced a thousand times  greater dangers v. and now he dreamed  ot diamonds bigger than the world has  known, and as another, an old man  not now far away, dreamed of a dead  son whose spent blood still cried un-  availingly to heaven.  While as for Bria herself, she was  sound asleep, having fallen Into a  mood of resignation, and believing  that the past chapter of her life was  closed for ever.  Dodd turned in his seat.  "We are nearly there," said he;  "can you see that light?"  They looked, and far away saw a  small light twinkling, raised, ns it  seemed, some little distance above the  level of the prairie.  "That is Noah's light, that Is," said  Dodd; "when you see that, you know  he is working away at his inventions."

Ehlor, of the University of Wisconsin.  The value of this instinct to climh  is further ��������� shown by the great pleasure of the child in climbing about  structures under construction, upon  the roofs of buildings, into trees, leading later to the climbing of ropes and  the use of suspended rings and bars.  Certain groups of muscles and ligaments that are essential parts of the  mechanism maintaining the upright  position can secure no adequate natural exercise except through the practice of these climbing movements.  Furthermore, these activities afford  the only means Avhereby courage and  confidence may be developed and fear  and-coAvardice be prevehted in situations involving unsteady support or  elevation above the ground. These activities, therefore, are of vital importance In laying a sure foundation for  the child's later physical and mental  and moral efficiency, and they should  be encouraged and promoted.

IE we are to take some of the  eastern Liberal papers seriously the  approaching general election in  British Columbia is being watched  with decided concern by the federal  Conservative party. So much are  they interested in the contest that  we are told.. that Premier Borden  has decided to wait until after polling day in B.C-. before coming to  any conclusion as to whether to  spring a general Dominion election  or not.  a No one in these parts wiii take  this view seriously for in no way  could the result of an election ih  this province serve as a guide for  Dominion-. election purposes,- The  issues on which the McBride government are appealing for a renewal of confidence will not figure in  the larger contest.  While no date has been set as  yet, Attorney General. Bowser, at a  nominating convention at Vancou- ^ ������. ������ .  ver on ' Saturday mgbt, ma lengthy  speech foreshadowed an election  within a few weeks.  The general impression is that  the election will occur early in May-  There should be no complaint from  successfully contested the. riding in  1909, losing out to Mr. McKay, the  present member, by less than a  dozen votes.  The Conservatives do not appear  to be in any hurry to place their  man in the field. This is not due  however, to any scarcity of material,^ for if newspaper reports can be  depended upon at- least three Kaslo  residents -will need verv little coft-x-  ing to persuade them to allow their  names to be placed in nomination  at the party convention. The trio  are Messrs. McKay, Garland and  Archer.  T. D. Caven, Conservative, and Dr������  J. H. King, Liberal, are already in  the field and down to work.    Both  had bang up conventions, and  no  competitors for  the   position.    In-  fact, so keen were the Liberals for  Dr. King to run  that C. B, Ward,  who was nominated  about' a year  ago to carry the  opposition standard,   withdrew from the field and  placed Dr. King's name in nomination.    Both have  previous legislative exporienco to thoireredit, both  have a persona.! foliowmfe* irrespeo-  tive   of   party   politics,   and   one  might* be safo in  saying as Cranbrook goes so goes the province.  down that C O.

Wigen*s name is also hoard, like-  THE   HOME  OF   THE  TRANSIENT  -������ ^s*  any  of the parties-  if the official  proclamation fixes some fine day in  that month  for polling.    While it-  is not quite  fair  to ask the people  to pass judgment on the very short-?  est  time  possible  allowed  by the  Election Act* neither is  it in the;  interests of the candidates, or busi-'  ness,or the people generally to have!  the campaign   too long drawn out.'  To  our way  of thinking a voting  day  early  in   May will   give   all  hands ample time for all the organization and   educational campaign-  wise Capt. Mallandaino and Guy  Lowenberg, though the latter gentleman has also disclaimed any intention of seeking M.P.P. honors.  Doubtless when we" run across Mr.  Wigen and Mr. Mallandaine they  will protest- their innocence of any  such aspirations���������but any and all  of them may be persuaded io  change their minds if their services  in this capacity are indispensable.  ates Galore in Nelson  In the Xelson constituency there  is no scarcity of  Conservative candidates���������the kind that speak right  out in meetin* and solicit your vote  and influence.    W. R. Maclean, the  1 sitting member, will have  at  least  'three opponent-**- for the convention  honors  to-night,   but at  this  dis-;  j tance it looks as if he will win out.  [ Of course, if  there is anything in a  I name he is not due  to win easily���������  Dr. Borden is one of his opponents.  The Liberals have placed Barrister  A. M. Johnson in the field.

The report is afloat that the nomin  ation may be offered Wm. Reese.  And this isn't the only trouble Mr.  Kaslo Constituency  From present appearances it will  lie a straight fight between the  Liberal and Conservative candidates in this constituency. The  Socialists are keen to have a man  in the running, but the financing  of his campaign appears to be out  of the question this year.  The Liberals, of course, know  where they are at, and taking  tilings by and large John Keen  seems to be about as likely a stand-  iird bearer as the party could find,  especially in these times of financial  depression. This will bo his second  attempt to bring home the bacon  in a contest in Kaslo, he having un-  Schoficld lias. When the Redistribution Bill was being drafted an  old map of Ymir riding was used  and as a result a large part of the  district at Trail called "The Gulch"  was taken into Rossland in.error.  There are 150 votes in that section,  mostly Italian, which Mr. Schofield  had considered safe for him. M.H.

I would strongly recommend all to  go in'for purebred stock and do away  with all scrub chickens'; they don't  pay���������they eat more and lay fewer eggs  than purebreds. Even if you have to  pay a few dollars more for good stock  it will pay in the long run, for once  you have a solid foundation you can  continually build upon it, and make a  success out of poultry.  Regarding different breeds, select  your favorite breed, stick to them and  look after them ; feed them the best  grain you can get,: keep them ^free  from lice. Be kind and gentle toward  them and you will always have a full  egg basket���������then if you want to catch  a-bird at any time you-can do so without any, trouble. I can go in the house  or even where they are running  around, almost catch any bird I want.  There is no struggling to get away.. In  this way I can examine them and not  injure them, and they, appreciate this  kind treatment.  In regard to keeping down lice I  paint the roost, three or four times a  week with a little crude carbolic acid  and coal oil just before the birds go to  roost. I also keep fresh litter in tho  nest boxes, sprinkling a little sulphur  in each noHt. I And this tho most  effective way of keeping down lice. So  far I havo not a louse on the place..  Feeding: I givo them all they want  to eat. At noon they havo all the  mash thoy can clean up in half an  hour. Around 2 o'clock they have  their evening ration of wheat thrown  in the deep litter, the birds working  in this litter until they go to roost,and  if I find they wont a little more I glve  it them���������this will leave a little wheat  for tho morning.

This  and~ other facts are vividly brought  "* home -to us in a remarkable book  which has just been published by  Slessrs. Chapman and Kail,-London,  under the title of "What I Found Out  in the House of a German Prince."  It is from the pen of a young English.-  woman of good birth, who, .through  her American connections and the influence of Prince Henry of Prussia,  was; in 1909, offered the post of English governess to two little princes,  aged five and six years respectively,  sons of a Royal German house. For  ' obvious reasons the author conceals  her own name and identity of her employers, but her revelations are none  the lews clear and eonviueiug because  ofthat. *.  It was to a palace on the Rhine that  she was sent to make the acquaintance  of her  charges.  When she arrived   there   the  little   princes, were  .playing in the garden-house, and the  wild shriek that came across the lawn  suggested a game c_ unusuai attraction. It was a stranger sight, however,  which greeted the eyes of the i_ngiish  governess.   Spread out upon the floor  was a complete model of the city of  London; parks, public buildings, cathedral, abbey, all represented in miniature, while over the towers floated a  fleet of model   Zeppelins,  which  the  ~ children  were manoeuvring with  remarkable skill.    "Worse than  ever!5'  cried a man's voice.    "Never  waste  time or material.    Now  watch again  the way I do it.   I am over Westminster Abbey." It was a young Prussian  lieutenant  who   was   supervising the  sport, and tiie object was to drop toy  bombs   upon   the   principal jmildings  " of the British metropolis.   Lieutenant  von X  was   somewhat  taken  aback  by    the presence of an unexpected  spectator, but hastened to assure her  that this was merely an innocent war  game, presented to the princes by the  inventor, Count Zeppelin.   But a few  hours'   experience   proved    that  the  spirit which lay behind the game was  by'no means* so guileless or inoffensive.   The   children had been taught  from the cradle to detest the English  as their natural enemies, and the old  Scottish housekeeper, who soon made  friends with the author, was under no  illusions as to the sinister intent of  this   warlike     sport.     Indeed,     the  young lieutenant had been frankly engaged upon the premises to keep a  military spiiit afire in the breasts of  the children. ���������<'  - A visit from tho-Kalser soon followed, and to him the English governess  wnS duly presented. He said in his  quizzical why: "I hope you: aro'Nnot  English enough to bo u suffragette,  Miss'-���������?" adding: "All these modern Englishwomen aro. suffragettes.  Well, wc should show them what we  think or thorn If thoy sent a deputation here.    But    whllo-thoy confine  Outlook is Good  the West  ilia.  themselves to their own soil we can  bless them.

"Then wc  have not much to he afraid of. We  -Germans are the sincerest people ia  the world, yet the strange thing is  that no outsiders ever understand  us.

It *waa. *not a  pleasant suggestion, but the author  tried to 'reacsurc "herself. "At any  rate, I am glad," Bhe said, "that the  Kaiser values us as. a nation."  "He   doesn't   do   anything   of   the  sort," I was assured by Mrs. M .  "You mark my words, all that the  German Kaiser and his sons (and  their set which our prince is in) like  aboub the British" nation is what it  ha3 got. You don't understand now.  But wait till this time nest year.  Then come and^tellme whether I'm  right or wrong." Alas! that far-seeing Scotswoman died before she could  witness the fulfilment of her prophecy! Meanwhile, little by little,, the  net of intrigue began to close around  the exile. She soon learnt that it was  prudent   to   insist - rather   upofi.   her  Speaker of Saskatchewan Legisla-*  ture Tells Cattle Breeders of  Conditions  Hon. W. C.

He told the members  of the, Dohiinion Cattle Breeders* association at the annual meeting held  at Toronto recetnly, something about  western conditions. He also saw a  silver lining in the depression cloud  ���������namely, tt>e putting to an end of  the wild-cat speculation in land, not  only for the present, but for a long  time ahead. He pointed out. that the  acreage prepared tor crop thjs year  would he 15 tier cent, above any other  year.  Dr. S. F. Tolmie, Dominion' governmental chief veterinary Inspector  in.

The  jtungiish governess saw something of  them all and heard more, especially  from her sprightly mistress, the'Princess. A vague feeling that ��������� great  men���������including t the new Herr Krupp,  who married the old Kerr Krupp's  daughter and .took his-name���������did not  come and go for nothing, that something greatwas being planned, is natural. At JCrupp's works she heard  whispers of the wonderful "surprise"  that was in preparation for their year  of jubilee, and curious questions were  continually put tb her with regard to  the English resources~-������_d provisions  of war. Count Bernhardi, indeed,  when he visited the. house,'made no  secret, even to the children, of the  military ambition of his country.  Prom the young lieutenant, whoso  indiscretion seems to ^ave got the  better of him, the governess learned  that the German army as well as the  navy prayed for "The Day." America,  too, eventually, must become Germanized, as Lieutenant von X������������������ believed she was already well on the way  to be with her growing German population, immense German financial  interests, and Influential newspapers.  The plans for American conquest  were already mapped out by the German war office, who never left anything to chance.  By the end of last summer they  governess had come ..to realize that  she was in a head centre of German  national activity. She wondered ii'  shtf' ought not to communicate such  lights as she had gained to her  own country. She did write a letter  to the British ambassador"'in" Beflin.  It was intercepted on the very eve  of war, and sho had to fly Germany,  'which bIio managed to do. thanks to  hor perfect knowledge of the inng-  jjuage' and an old American pat-sport.  time.  Considerable "time was devoted to a  discussion of the "association  which,the various live stock associations procure for the shipment of  pure bred stock. The association  wants the regulations amended so  that more than one man can travel  with a car. It was declared that it  was impossible ofr one man to do the  work. There is a deficit of ������418' on  the cars last year, and to meet this  -i_ was decided to ask the various associations to levy a tax of 10 cents  on each of their members. The assoc-  ition also wants a veterinary to  .examine all cattle which are shipped.  Colonel Mc-iae declared that it was  a bad time- to ask the railways for  anything. The associations, in his  opinion, had not got what they were  entitled to.  While these lines are being written  the tide of German success may be  turning,^.turning to a national and  dynastic disaster, unparalled in modern history, but reserved, self inflict-  ed, if any people's ruin was, by the  spirit- and the methods adopted^-hy a  nation's chosen rulers and favored instructors.

The factory of'Jolin A.'Roebling .Co.,  of Trenton, New Jersey, was burned  by an incendiary while the company-  was completing - an order for barbed  wire for the French government.  He adds that following as this does  upon the outrages at sea���������the mutiny  upon the first American Red Cross  ship, the destruction by burning of  several hundred cavalry horses  bought for the British army and at  sea two days out from Baltimore, the  destruction of Italian army horses,  and the stranding at Bermuda of an  Italian vessel���������ope;.s up the grave  question of the danger of employing  Germans or German sympathizers at  all in connection with tho numerous  and important contracts for supplies  for the allies.  An even moro startling fact than  the Roehling flro is the assertion that  German spies are interfering with  cable communication. "Much,*" he  says, "Is done under the guise of alleged censorship, which is purely mal-  iclQus Interference, without any. reason to justify it.

Just as the Rothschilds in Buckinghamshire, by spending thousands  of  pounds imparting to their estates the  sylvan loveliness of neighboring Hertfordshire, Jn that they conveyed thither  elms  of 50. years  in  growth  and  planted them to suit the scenic effect;  so the grove*, and parks of Paris urn  of Brussels shall  .be made good   By  German money.    Foj- every beauty in  architecture that Germany is now laying  low  with   gunpowder   and   dynamite in Flanders and Brabant, in the  Ligeois and Namurois and in Belgian  Luxemburg   and   the     northeast   of  France, she shall pay;  pay    for t.&  complete rebuilding and redocoratlon,  pay  for  restoration  and  a  bit  over.  The    more she-keeps destroying tho  more   crushing shall be her national  debt.    She shall pay indemnities    to  those .who havo survived the destruction.-'of /their homes in Belgium or in  France,".'pay  for  the  support  of the  widow, tho parents,  the' children  of  all   whom  her*soldiers  have  barbarously and unjustly slain; pay for robbing tho western world needlessly, inexcusably, of two years of happiness,  pay for the destruction of tourist carrying French .'railroads,, for the Interruption of our North Sea fishing industry,    for the loss of every penny  occasioned   by - enforced   idleness or  foreign imprisonment, for   every ship  nnd life she has destroyed among our  ilshing folk and those of France and  Belgium.  And  none  will   press  moro mercilessly, this demand for indemnification  tions, which will have to be enforced  by  territorial occiination   on  a larze **  scale, by a virtual" revolution.  All the German states must go Into  first of all. The private estates of all  her rulers and princes���������first and foremost of the Hohenzollems���������-must b6  escheated by the revolutionary government and be applied to the redemption of German territory. If Germany likes to retain, after war is  over, her present,- or something near  her present, territorial divisions and  dynasties she must allot to hear  chosen princes, kings and emperor a  reasonable , civil list, payment for  value received. But all their private  estates, their vast domains, their  house ��������� treasures and trusts and concealed funds must become national  property.  Once Germany is purged   bf   Prussia, 'once the Hohenzoilerns are exiled on modest annuities, once she is  made a really democratic empire or  republic, she will soon recover from  her   woes���������as    soon,    perhaps,      as  France did after 1871.

Austria    can  point to her as a ruin of the Austrian empire;  and    perhaps the only  separation, she. can make in that direction   after .the   death of the Emperor Francis Joseph is the incorporation of all German speaking Austria  into   a  fully,   ^enfranchised    German  realm.  Russia must'have the fullest satisfaction and tecurity she cares to demand, that the Bosphorus and Hellespont shall bo no more a padlock on  her trade and enterprise and on the  world's need for Russian grain ,aad  Russian oil. The least the western  world can do for her in return for  saving western civilization and restoring Poland to nationhood is to provide  her Avith that free access to the Mediterranean which is necessary to her  development. Belgium must* have  territorial enlargement in sevcra? directions, France a Rhine frontier, the  international character cf the Baltic  Sea must be secured for nil Its li_ntt-  rophe nat-onalities.  And last, but not least, in the day  of reckoning Britain must see, shull  see, ic the press- can make her (for  politicians'   memories  are   notoriously unretentive), thnt her soldiers and  sailors (the rank and file and not only  the officers) aro amply rowarded for  tho efforts, they have made and will  have made to secure for the British  empire    a    satisfactory   and lasting  peace.
