The Dominion Fruit Crop Report  issued June 28th .e just to hand, and a  perusal of its contents confirms earlier  advices to the efteet that reasonably  good prices for this year's fruit crop  seem assured.        *���������  Speaking of the torairie market the  Report advises that there is no reason  to expect a repetition of last season's  low prices. Grain prop promises to be  a record one. Considering light yield  in Western States^ fair prices are expected, TIie'cottonA'and manufacturing  States promise a good demand which  will tend to minimize the- dumping of  American fruit im the Canadian  markets.  Reports os the apple yield from, the  Atlantic to the Pacific are all agreed  that, Nova Scotia excepted, this year's  crop will be considerably lighter than  a year ago, and from Nova Scotia latest word is that "unfavorable weather  has been encountered and scab is developing to a serious extent,  Discussing the app}e crop in this  -province the Report says : Orchards at  the Pacific Coast in British Columbia  promise a crop about equal to 1914;  there are no indications of a change in  conditions in the inland valleys, where  the crop about 70 per cent.-of average.  The total crop for thev province is estimated a_" 850.000 ;boxes, or about  35.GGQ boxes less than a year ago.

Misses Ruby, Jean'and Vera Palmer  and Mr. Allen of the Bank of Commerce, Creston, are up Summit Creek  on a two-week's camping trip.  R. J.

The Okanagan expects a great quantity of theni. Oregon has a nice crop,  but none for export.  The only other fruits reported from  this province are cherries and rasp  berries. The yield of the former will  equal 1914 at interior points, while  raspberries will be slightly less than a  year ago.  Speaking of prospects elsewhere the  Report has this to say of the Northwest States: The general report is  that the apple crop will bo about 00  per cent, of last .year. In the lower  Yakima Valley there will be a good  yield of Rome Beauty and Arkansas  Black, while Ben Davis,^ Jonathan,  New town and, in some districts Spitz-  en burg, will be poor. The entire Yakima Valley will not have more thon  45 percent, of tho 1014 crop. In W_-  natchee and North Central Washington prospects are bettor and tho yield  is expocted to bo 80 per cent, of last  year, .Rome Beauty, Wlnesap and  Yellow Newtown will bo a good crop,  and Jonathan lighter.

There must be nearly 4,000 troops in  camp, tup 47th Battalion and the Canadian Mounted Rifies, besides the 54th -  Battalion. Each battalion has a regimental pet, and each company has  some kind of a mascot. The 34th has  a young bear cub, the 47th has a goat.  I don't know what the C.AI.R. havo,  but each company has a dog of some  kind as mascot; we have big, little and  tiny. The biggest is three feet and the  smallest you could put in a pocket.  We are aborts two miles from Long  Lake and each.night there are about  50'or 60 men abwa there to bathe.

OTfLE  Search  Caused ^by War Shortage  Results   in   Discovery   of   Cheap  Substitute  One of the first results of the quest  ot chemists for substitutes for dyes  made   in  Germany   is  sulphur  black  derived from so-called exhausted tan  bark.     One  of  the   best  known  research men in this city, a member of  the Chemists.' club, has derived some  very satisfactory black dye ������_o__ the  inexpensive   source    mentioned,   the  basis o_ which is connected with tannic acid-  At the laboratorj it was said that  tiie inventor for whom the researches  have been conducted by the .chemist  for thevlast few months does not care  at this time to make the" formal announcement over his name pending  ���������certain trade arrangements and further experiments. He believes that he 1  will be able soon to improve the pro-1  cess greatly and present an American  fast black which will be of great  value to textile manufacturers and at  moderate cost.  Although ��������� considerable quantities of  dye-stuffs have been* coming out of  Germany the indications are that  there will be a shortage this summer  and the chances for the coming year  are dubious. Tho sulphur black substitute is especially adapte I for cotton.  Arc'.iU*-s. vegetable dye which gives  to wools varying shades of red and  browu, according to the strength of  the decoration made from it, has been  found in largo quantities in Lower California. Further information concerning it may ">e obtained from the Mexican consuls. The plant from which the  dye is obtained is worth about $25 a  ton. The supply is said to be enormous.  Several corporations have retained  chemists to work out dyestufl: problems. Many branches of the dye industry in this country have been in a  state of suspended animation owing to  the ability of the Germans with low  priced yet efficient technical help and  ���������cheap labor to produce products at  prices with which Americans could  not compete. New processes are' being -developed in the laboratories of  American engineering chemists, however, which will lead 'soon to important developments.���������New York Herald-  WATERPROOF COLLARS AMD CUFFS  Something   betier   than   linen   and   big  wamiry   _i!J3      Wash  water.

These boots were worn by our soldiers on  active service both In this country and In the "*  training camps in England. They were subjected to the most severe usage that boots  could be subjected to. They travelled over -*���������  rough roads and smooth. They waded through  mud and through' slush past all description.  They were soaked by the never-ceasing rains  of an abnormally wet EngliBh winter. They  were baked on hot stoves, grilled on steam  radiators and roasted before open fires. Yet,  THEY STOOD THE TEST.  Out of the entire .32,217 pairs ������������ leather  boots .supplied by this company only a single  pair was shown to be open to criticism when  the Government enquiry was made six months  later.  Experts employed by the Government exam-  - ined .1365 pairs and 348 odd boots made' by  various manufacturers. Among the number  were found only seven pairs of boots of .Ames  Holden. McCready manufacture, of which flvo  were found to be repairable, one pair unrepairable, and ONE PAIR HAD A SOUS UNDER  GAUGE.  The best proof of the durability and serviceability of the Ames Holden McCready boots,  however, was afforded by the sworn "statements of soldiers who had worn these boots  constantly from the time they were issued in  September, 1914, right through to March, 1915.  They swore that, they had -worn the boots  through all the rough experiences at Valcar-  tier and on Salisbury Plain and that they  had given excellent service throughout..

The  appointment of a Parliamentary Committee and  the official enquiry followed.   Itvoccupied several weeks' time.   The Committee ��������� stopped at  nothing in their efforts to get at all the facts.  This Company purchased-the best leather  and supplies available in Canada and spared no  expense in manufacturing the boots.   All our  invoices, and shop and manufacturing records  were produced before tho Parliamentary Committee  for their  inspection and  information.  We had nothing to hide and wero proud of the  boots which were furnished to the Government.  THE -AMES HOLDEN.McCREjADY BOOTS  CAME OUT OF THE ORDEAL UNSCATHED.  The Committee reported to Parliament that  the boots supplied by this company substantially complied with the sample, that no paper  or other fraudulent substances had been employed   in   their   manufacture   and   that ail  charges involving the integrity of this company  or of  the boots supplied  by them  had been  abundantly disproven by the sworn evidence  taken before the Committee.

Failing to reciprocate in this direction  some citizens should not be surprised if further credit is refused them,  or even more drastic'action taken.  01 In this connection we would  remind some of our. rancher-sub-  soribers whose REVIEW has not  been stopped owing to our knowing they were finding financing a  bit strenuous that we will appreciate an early call with either part  or full payment.

Usually a self-feeding hopper filled with dry meat meal  is kept before the birds as is also chopped alfalfa or some other green food.  Crate Feeding  There-is probably no one branch of  the poultry business that offers a  greater profit than does crate feeding,  It costs about one cent per pound  more to put a pound of flesh on a bird  in ������, pen than in a crate, and from two  to three cents more ,when the bird is  running free. Crate feeding also produces the highest quality of meat,  which should bring the highest prices.  For crate feediug probably the best  flesh forming ration is ground oats  and skimmed milk. Tallow should be  fed in a ratio of one pound to 50 or 60  birds per day, during the hist few days  of feeding.  For crate feeding the American  breeds are best, particularly the barred Plymouth Rock and the 'White  "Wyandotte.

"Twelve years?" said the other, in  an-incredulous voice. "Surely we've  been here longer than that."

The Canadian casualty lists  from the battle of Langemarck contain the names of many residents of  the United States. The number is too  large to be attributed to the presence of American soldiera of fortune  in the ranks of the Canadians. "While  no doubt some of those reported  among the killed and wounded whose  addresses are genuine are American  citizens who enlisted out of sympathy  for the cause of the allies, the greatest majority are Canadians or sons of  Canadians  who  for  various  reasons  From the After Effects of  Pneumonia Followed by  Diphtheria  Frequently the   after'effects   of ill*  ��������� ness: are   more serious than the original   trouble.

Mrs-   Moir says:     *'Some. yeai^,  ago,  while    we wers still living in; Nova  Scotia, I was taken down with a severe attack of pneumonia. I had sufficiently ' recovered to be around, but  had not been able to go out when 1  was attacked-' with diphtheria. In my  weakened: state it took a terrible hold  on me,  and  neither my friends nor  " neighbors thought I would recover. I  did, however, pull through, but was a  physical wreck.    The muscles of my  throat were paralyzerQ7l50Nthat even a  sup of water would' flow b&ck through  my   nostrils,   unless   they were held  closed.   My voice w&s aliacst;  insud-  ble  and my eyes  so badly effected  that I feared I waa gcinj to lose my  eyesight. : I could only walk with assistance and it looked as    thoujgh    I  would be a helpless cripple.   Medicine  after medicine was used,   but did not  Iielp me.    Then a neighbor advisetjk  Dr.    William,'    Pink Pills.    I begjfn  I taking them but had the utmost difficulty in swallowing them owing to  the condition of. my thrbiat. However,  after a couple of boxes had been used  I found it easier, to take them, which  was a sign they were helping rae,  and I felt greatly cheered. I do not  know how many boxes I took; but I  continued their use until I was as well  as ever, much to the surprise of all  who knew me, as all thought I could  not get better. Since then I have several times taken the-Pills when run  doWn and have always been greatly  benefited by them."

AN   AMERICAN  WRITER  PAYS   A   FINE   TRIBUTE  Will Irwin Tells of the  Heroic  Conduct of the   Raw Canadian  Troops,   and  of the Fortunes of War which Brought  Them a Sunreme Test of Valor  Writing in the  New York Tribune * They  ..a.--     Tur-T-  from  Northern  France,  Will    Irwin,  who has won an international reputation for his work in the present war,  speaks of the heroism that has marked many incidents, and has  this to  eay of the Canadians at Langemarck*.  Finally,  there are    the Canadians.  Since  the  affair    which    the  United  States calls the war of 1812, Canada  has known no war,    save minor engagements with red Indians and the  war against nature. The rest has been  peace and    naticn building and prosperity. Now, the Canadian contingent  was scarcely upon the line before they  behaved heroically at Hill 60. A fortnight later ,and while they still ranked as "raw troops,"    the fortunes of  war   brought   them a supreme test of  valor.    The poisonous cloud of noxi-  our gas   had driven back the French  to their left- Their line was "dangling  la  the .air."    They  were  bombarded  in front,    they were    enfiladed, they  *?ere bombarded from   the rear, they  w_re shrouded in poison fumes. They  held   on,   they   even   advanced;   they  did the impossible by rescuing their  guns.    And they stuck until  ordered  back to join up the new line.  With them, as with the others, no  military decorations can possibly reward all the deeds of valor.- There is  the boy I saw going under the X-ray.  His hands were in bags; . they had  been shot through. His leg was in a  splint; the bone was shattered. He  was going to be "X-rayed," however,  that the surgeons mighV find exactly  what had happened to a splintered  skull. He managed to tell the at-'  tendants that he had' received his  "crack on the head" last of, all, and  that B-S.chine gun fire'at close range  "��������� jjfl'.-i.   .. ���������-.'���������'* .  .--*%��������� a v������     _. v������ .   .  Wha.t a story underlies that statement! Shot in one hand���������he kept oh.  Shot in the other���������he kept on. His  leg shattered���������he kept on, until he  'tell unc_r_-cic_s from the "crack on  the head."  AThen there were the- five men in a  eertain Canadian company���������and the  unrecorded    rest    of    that company.  they started to secure their position.  Along came a 'surprisingly heavy  eounter-attack. But they held and  held and held, until, when the recall  sounded, only five men leaped up and  ran back to the retired trenches���������  and two of them were wounded. Was  Balakalava finer than this? Vet it is  lost among the mighty ueeds of this  war.  The men who did all this were raw  troops, judged by the old standards,  and they came from a Dominion  which has been at. peace for a century. It is no good to say that they  were "backwoodsmen" and therefore  accustomed to something resembling  war. Some of them, it is true, were  wheat farmers of the Saskatchewan,  miners of the Klondike, or voyagers  of the great rivers. Further, not 'a  few were native-born citizens of the  untamed western. United States. But  as many or more left desks in Montreal, Ottawa or Vancouver to go to  war.  When war is forced upon a nation,  as 'it. has been forced upon the more  civilized nations  of western  Europe,  it is,   of   course,    necessary to fight  back.   It    is  especially necessary in  this case, if you believe in maintaining  a blood-bought  democracy.    But  let us be honest,    even in the midst  of the struggle.    Peace    has brought  to Europe, not decadence,    but such  manly fibre as the world never knew  before.    _*erhaps  this  has  happened  because the "men of manly fibre have  had a chance under peace to live and  breed their kind.    One suspects that  just   to   live    well in this complex,  modern world���������to  be  deaf    to siren  songs, to be calm in adversity to keep  working, to endure bereavement and  disappointment,   to,:. break untrodden  ways through the wilderness    of in-:  dustry, commerce    and science���������that'  all this breeds enough of manly fibre.  After this war let no w*orshipper of  bleeding god- put is his sermene of  valor the statement that peace breeds  degeneracy.    It    is not peace which  does this, it is too __uo_. r~a_. ���������-,:  ���������rug Q*^er *"* Score of Miles Now an  Accomplished Fact  ( - The French estimate of the distance from which tne Germans dropped shells in Dunkirk is 23% miles.  Fire at such a range has long been  a topic of popular interest as a possibility.   It is now a fact.  Traveling swifter than a rifle ball,  a shot fired at such a ra.ige is nearly  two minutes on its way. At 45 degrees elevation it rises more than  two miles above the loftiest mountain,  higher than man can mount in a balloon and live, before it begins to descend-  , The fire that wrecked the Antwerp  forts was delivered with much more  accurate aim, all. ost vertical, at fairly short range. The great guns of warships cannot be .elevated more than 15  degrees. This is one reason why tha  allies landed armies at the Dardanelles. - Plunging fire from batteries  at closer range should be more effective against Turkish forts than the  big guns of the Queen Elizabeth. No*  warship could shell New York from a  distance at sea equaling the range of  land artillery.  It is hard to hit a small mark at  half a mile . nd harder to hit a hi"  one at twenty miles. The Germans  are probably satisfied, without, having  accomplished a military object, with  the moral effect of their feat���������and  there is always a chance that a great  shell may hit a vital spot. Our army  experts say that a range of thirty raihes  is possible with present day ordnance. Thus Constantinople might  be bombarded Srom the shore of the  Black Sea, Trieste from Italian soil.  Seuta from Gibraltar, Sardinia from  Corsica, Dover from Caalis. This is  why the German shots at Dunkirk  were heard round the world.���������New  York World-r  <r\*n nnvvir* inr������ff-_^#_?am _*k_rB J_T-5S*"SS*-i\*._r_._f__ti-r fulfil  iHE-emusur i_g������_ym_i__imL  WHY   THE   LIQUOR   PROPOSALS   WERE  *ijjrv*n'Tr'inr,i  M*u_.ir ____.-'  Reason of the   Limitation  of   Lloyd   (Jeorge's   Drastic   Liquor  Proposals is Stated to be not Altogether  on Account  of the Organized Strength of the Trade  and idleness in the sort  Encourage Seed Growing  It is not the organized strength of  the trade m ifingiand that has torced  Lloyd George to so greatly modify his  proposals for dealing with the liquor  problem, but the settled habits of the  British people themselves, and particularly of the working- classes, who are  most affected.    It  is  true  that    the  brewers, distillers and bottlers of the  British Isles  form a  combination^ of  tremendous  strength, that they have  members of    parliament - and    in the  house of lords,  and that millions of  people, directly or indirectly, depend  upon them for employment and support.    But    if    the   average  British  workingman had' been in favor of the  total   closing down    of public houses  during the war they would have been-  closed down, no    matter how loudly  the trade might have protested, and  no matter how active its agent might  halve made themselves in the hous *s  of parliament.   WUi Crooks and Joha  Burns, both of them lifelong abstainers,  spoke    for the  laboring classes  when they told the government that  total prohibition  would not be   tolerated:    and when    the Irish members  protested it was plain that the government  would   do  more  harm  than  good by placing a prohibitive tax upon spirits.  -   While  properly  s  in  of cramped  _ ���������     ������  children is somewhat nerve-racking.

But  there is another reason why at this  time above all others the British  workman should drink. There is  hardly one of them, perhaps, who has  no4: had a *'pal" killed or wounded in  this war, or one of whose death tidings may be received any day.

The only operation  which Canada does not carry out at  present is making brass for t,he cartridge cases. While the zinc and copper are mined in Canada they arc not  refined here; thut being done in the  United States. In the past it has been  found convenient to sell zinc and copper matte to American refiners and  buy back the pure copper andvrtnc,or  the two combined'with tin to form  brass. There has been no brass making of .consequence in  Canada-  With the demand for shell brass  reaching great proportions there haa  been an investigation into the possv-  ^ bility of having the copper and zlnO  refining and brass making carried out  in thia country.

Canadian farmers should not only try  to  meet the  emergency  demand, for  field root seed iii the immediate future, but; should also try to establish  a  permanent  seed-grow iiig    industry  which vwould make them independent  of any others countries.".  There will  assuredly not be a  dissenting voice  to this doctrine as a general principle  and the Bulletin, which, is being gratuitously distributed and can be had  on application    to    the    publications  branch, department of agriculture, Ottawa, tells in detail how this desirable  state of affairs can ba brought about.  Cases are given where successful effort has already been made, but the  data regarding the matter, it would  seem,   is  not  quite  as  available  as  could be wished.    What is definitely  known is that quantities of seed are  bruoght    in    from abroad, much of  which it is believed could, -with the  requisite care, be produced In Canada  and of a character ns good and high.  Genoral     principles for successful  seed-growing, -of-..*selection,   etc.,  are  laid down in the Bulletin, which also  details methods that could profitably  bo   adopted   for   planting,  threshing:  and cleaning of many species of field  roots.   A list that, \& given of the best  varieties of vegetables for stock seed  is ot good  practical  value.

When there is news of a victory be "wets the occasion." Whether  the news is good or bad it nrovides  an excuse to those who are in need  of one.  Moreover, in the opinion of tho  spokesman of the working-men, they  are not responsible for the slackness  in providing the munitions of war.  They insist that the blame lies rather  with the manufacturers, who axe  making huge fortunes out of war  orders, and are working the men to  the limit without sharing any of their  profits.

In Some Part of the World There  Always Work for British Arms  . It has    been said with some truth  that for the British empire war never  ceases.   In   some parts of the world  ���������there is always    some   business   for  British arms.   If it is not an expedition against   some oi the restless hill  tribes of Northern India it is an expedition to restrain   the Mad Mullah  in the Soudan,    or an expedition out  of Singapore,   to some of the Malay  Islands,    or    from    Sydney    to    the  Papuan   Islands,   or elsewhere.   The  responsibility ot protecting the   vast  possessions of the Crown in the seven  seas** involves   more   or less constant  offensive  o   punitive  military measures.   These occurrences being taken  so much for granted, the public gives  scarcely a thought to the fact    that  in addition to   her great military organizing    in    Northwestern  Europe,  and  the  conducting  of  largo  operations  In  the Dardanelles,  Britain  is  conducting no fewer than five seper-  nto campaigns In Africa, has repressed an Insurrection by somo Mohammedan tribes of-Northern'India, .has  destroyed a new fore.-** gathered by the  Dervishes of the Soudan, has rhnresa-  ed a norman-lncited rising   at Singapore, and on five continents is ready  to defend colonies and dependencies  largo and small.

These young   men are nr hotter than  those of whom we in    the    United  States had read before as being killed,  wounded  or  missing  in  the  battles,  but they seem more real to us because  they went from our side of the world  and  they  are  cur  kind    of  people.  Some of them were so vory recently  eager, cheerful, ambitious youths just  like our own boys and our next door  neighbor's boys.   Now they have sacrificed themselves and  we feel how  deeply niUBt bo the.anguish in homes  near  us  when   tho    dreadful    news  come3 over the cables.  It is pathetic, but it Is more than  pathetic. With the story of tho new  gaps In the Canadian ranks como also  stories of fresh recruiting in Canada.  Other boys aro keenly intent on enlisting that they may follow where their  companions have led.
