Fletcher, fruit inspector for  this division, has forwarded the following letter direct to the C.P.B.  headquarters: -  You. will agree with me, t think, that  the success of the- fruit industry depends on the placing of the goods on  the market in the best possible condition.  This must be done consistently, for  one shipment of poor fruit destroys  more confidence than can be gained by  one hundred shinments of nerfect  fruit.  In its present shape the unloading  ' platform at' the Creston depot is far  -from satisfactory, especially in rainy  - weather. _  aw. ita 6i-t.ii'e leno'tli tliere- is absolutely no protection from the frequent  rains that obtain in the Valley, more  especially in^ the b^erry season. The  eaves of the freight ~.var_hou_e naturally shed large volumes of water, some  of which is bound to get into the  crates, no matter how carefully and  -dexterously they may be handled.

This would give protection  to the fruit actually being unloaded as  well as to those awaiting their turn, of  which there .arc always a few particularly at the rush hours.  As you are aware Creston is an important small-fruit shipping point and  if conditions are made favorable the  industry will grow enormously���������to the  mutual advantage of your company as  well as the "Valley generally.  Knowing as you do the utter impossibility of satisfactorily shipping damp  fruit, and knowing your desire to  effect any improvement that tends to  advance the material welfare of the  agricultural class particularly, I thank  you in advance for the prompt and  serious consideration I feel Sure you  wilj, give this matter.  As all are aware wet "fruit, particularly the soft varieties, deteriorates hi transit, and in view of the  fact that dealers everywhere arc  quick to turn down shipments unless they come to hand in first-class  shape, every possible pressure  be brought to bear on the C.P.B. to  make this improvement forthwith.  The amount of business originating  here justifies the request, even in a'  year of generally-reduced earnings  such as this is.  A 1915 outdoor-grown cabbage  weighing twentyrj&ve (25) pounds from  the ranch of Sam Fraser, Erickson,  picked on July 27th, was on display in  the drugstore window on Tuesday and  Wednesday. Na&israliy it- attracted  a WuOie iot of attention ootn on account of its size���������38 inches in circumference���������and weight and its early-season maturing. Inspection showed, that  it was,almost as firm as Gibraltar and  a perfect specimen of its kind in every  respect.  This fellow was part of a three-ton  crop growing, on the Fraser ranch this  season, two and a* han.

Further corroborative evidence that  the Erickson section leads the Valley  ih early vegetable production at least  is shown by the records. In addition  to the Fraser's early cabbage and tomatoes, B. J. C. Richardson is this  year's earliest cauliflower; Roy Staples  is the first to export cucumbers, and  M. B. Palmer is the early-potato man.  And barring strawberries Erickson  can -justly lay claim to the honor to  send out tho fhst'raspberries, logani  berries, blackberries and dewberries,  W. Or. Littlejohn being the early bird  In all these lines.' In raspberries John  Johnson of Duck Creek had a few cups  for his own use ahead of theLittlejohu  fruit, but not enough for shipping.  Just now a canvass is being made of  the Erickson district to havo, if possible,* this year's vegetable output  packed at the warehouse there under  competent supervision and sont out  backed by a guarantee of uniform  of en eh crate.

Up to the time of going to presB  there is nothing definite to be handed  out about the Doukhobor purchase of  Block 812.

Fraser ranch among his samples.  Although the first of each month  had been fixed upon as pay day at the  Fruit Growers Union, everything owing the 120 clients of tho Union for  June business was paid in full on July  20th.

It is  only what we might have expected  from one of your ability and principle.  While we regret your removal from  amongst us our regret is tempered by  our pride in your noble purpose.  - w e ask you to accept iui������s wrist  watch as a slight token of our friendship and esteem, and so wear it as a  memorial of your stay among us.

We find, on reference to a publication of the British board of agriculture, the following statistics bearing  on the subject. Sugar beet area cultivated*. Belgium aud Holland each  about 150,000 acres, France about 550,-  000. a total of 850,000 acres, therefore, if all the area were seeded with  wheat, the aggregate crop of the three  countries might be increased by 20,-  000,000 bushels.

I  might  have bargained for a share of the treasure did JV3 find any, but I scorned to  do it.   1 would give all and expect nothing for it- .  At any rate, not being in any hurry,  although I was frantically urged by  my lady, who could scarcely possess  her soul in patience before she began  her treasure hunting, I looked about  a good deal in order to get just what  I wanted. Finally from a merchant of  Plymouth I purchased a stout little  ship of three hundred and fifty tons  burden, called the ��������� Rose of Devon,  which had been engaged in the West  Indian and the American colonial  trade.  It was my first design to have gone  as master of her myself, and my lady  would tain have had it so, but after  reflection I decided it were better to  have a much older man than I to command so long as she went as a passenger, and so I engaged a worthy  seaman, one Samuel Matthews, old  enough to be my father, with whom I  had often sailed; in fact, the mau  under whom 1 made my first, cruise.  I did engage myself as mate, however,  and I even tried in vain to induce  Master Ficklin and his sister to go  with us.  It seemed proper in venturing  among islands filled, according to  common report, with savage peopled,  to provide for fighting. Therefore, after consulting with Captain Matthews,  whom I fully acquainted with the entire project in nil its details, I shipped n. crew of thirty men and I provided in the equipment, plenty of muskets, pistol:; and cutlasses, with tho  necessary powder and ball, nnd In addition a small brans cannon which I  mounted on the forecnatlo.  our cargo luck nieana for  trading and barter should  found practicable.

Our 'liree greatest wars in the  last century, including the Napoleonic,  cost ?5,750,000,000--a total which our  ultimate liability in the present war  will    assuredly    exceed.  Our    Souths  African War. bill was   .1,250,000,000���������  small by comparison.  The niost striking contrast, however, may be obtained by reference  to the long Crimean campaign^ for  which we had to pay only $350,000,-  000.; Tiie greatest previous" war of  recent times, the Russo-Japanese,  involved the contestants in less than  $2,500,000,000 together. Months ago  France's outlay on the present war  exceeded her expenses in the German campaign "of 1870-71, which totalled .1,580,000,000.

Canada  After the  War  The statistics of immigration show  that the .European wars of the last  century were all followed by a marked Increase in the flow of emi>_Tation  .towards the. North American continent.  That  happened  at  the ^close  of  the Napoleonic wars, when the maritime provinces  received a great  influx of settlers.    After the .Crimean  war again immigrants poured into Ontario and Quebec and a similar tids  occurred    after   the   Franco-German  war.   This phenomenon was specially  visible  in the  United  States,  which  luring the greater part of last century  remained the -chief centre of attraction  for  the  European    expatriates.  Canada's turn came notably after the  South African, war, and it is a reasonable . ooajecturo  that  tho  end ,of  tho  present, world   conflict   will   be  marked by a tremendous outflow of returned fighting; men to the Dominion.  ���������Toronto World.  they were the'right medicine, and after she bad taken nine boxes she, had  fully recovered her former health j and  strength.

Blended   Rations   Served   on   C.P.R.  Dining   Cars   Adapted   for   the  Traveller  "How  much may  a  man  eat-on  a  train journey and still not have indigestion*?"     Such     was     the   problem  j facing Mr. W .A. Cooper, manager of  'the   C.P.R.   dining  car   system,   and  i this problem he thinks he has solved  , with the aid of Dr. Harvey ..Wiley, the  j well known specialist of    New York,  i i-jp.jj   for instance   is a recommended  j selection of foods  for breakfast, luncheon    and    supper    oa the Imperial  Limited: .   -".���������"'���������' -;'.: '-:.-'   Ay, '..y*.���������"���������- ;���������  Breakfast���������Cereal y with- ' Cream;;  Fried Eggs with Rasl.er Bacon.

This new  scheme of "Dietetic Blended Menus"  is therefore introduced not with the  object of inducing traveilers^to spend  more money, but to spend less, the  object of the railway being to secure  contented and not dyspeptic travelers.  With each menu is presented a short  homily on food written by Dr. Wiley  to the following effect:  "The four essential elements of food  are the proteins, or nitrogenous foods,  the carbohydrates, such as sugar and  starch, A the fats', suchas oil and butter,  and mineral matters, such "as lime,  potash-and phosphoric acid.  "The dietetic blended foods on the  Canadian Pacific dining car service  menus have been arranged so that tiie  traveller in choosing one of these  suggested meals will secure a ration  which is dietetic, that is, riburisbing  and wholesome, and at tiie same time  properly blended. Thus each of these  blended rations will supply all the  nutritional need of the traveller and  not burden the digestive apparatus  with any excess of the essential elements of food. As a result, the traveller will be better nourished, wiii suffer  less discomfort and be in less danger  'jf*,iT\TV2.

The occasion is one that is entitled to a commemoration such as has  been  arranged   for.

This     splendid    showing     will  doubtless be as gratifying'to!'Principal MacDonaid  as it is to those  here who maintained that he filled  the position of headmaster  as capably as  could  be  desired.     While  the*re    may  be room  to question  Mr. 51acDonold's  qualifications  as  a disciplinarian these results leave  no room for doubt as to  his ability  to impart the necessary instruction  to pass candidates  at examination  time.  By no stretch of the imagination  can it be argued  that the graduation of ov .ry candidate in a class of  twelve was  a  fluke  or a piece of  good fortune (had tliere been thirteen   and   one   or  two fail  there  might   have   been  room  to claim  the reverse owing  to the unlucky  number).    Tt is proof  positive that  Mr. MacDonaid has the ability and  gets results���������and   after all that is  the prime requisite in any teacher.  The inculcation   of   morals,   good  maimers  aud  general  deportment  are  matters for home instruction  very largely.  Proficiency in these latter matters  comes with experience and age.

In the  everyday life of most of  us we get  enough of  the serious side of  this  awful  conflict;    what   should   be  aimed at is  a   demonstration th-it  will  give  due  prominence  to  the  work that lies  before us  in. seeing  the conflict through to a successful  conclusion, and  at the  same time  intersperse  some - of   the  brighter  features   common   to   an  outdoor  gathering  of  citizens.    Variety is  the spice of life, even in war times.  With some athletics, patriotic  addresses, and a great big Valley  family supper in the afternoon, a  patriotic concert in the evening and  the proceeds from the whole affair  going into the Red Cross treasury,  a more sane and appropriate passing of the first anniversary of Britain's declaration of war against  Prussianism can hardly be devised.  This is how the committees are  shaping up the day's proceedings.  Don't let any feeling you may  entertain against the affair because  of its seeming over-seriousness or  lack of that quality detain you.

A well-known citizen of Kitchener, amongst others, calls our  attention this matter. While  agreeing that the bulk of the  annual grant for roads should be  spent in the more-densely populated  portions of the riding, he states  tha. the Kitchener section has not  i*eceived the attention in this connection to which it is justly entiled.  As all know tho Kitchener country is the rendezvous ideal for the  outdoor pilgrim. Tho trout fishing  is good and the mountains are inhabited by game that has seldom  1'elt tho prcsoncc of a hunter. Tho  trails are intricate aud in climbing  these mountains the hunter loaves  his horso behind and bocomes a  quadrupod himself in mounting to  the highest lodges and chimneys.  This section of Ymir takes off its  hat to fow othor parts of TVCI. when  it comes down to furnishing primeval fishing and hunting grounds.

Part of the letter was censored, but  we are able to reproduce the following  extracts.  N   Belgium, May 22nd,  I must say it gives me some measure  of satisfaction to have been the friend  of a man like your son Will. You asked me whether we left Canada together. We nailed in the same boat as  reinforcements for the Princess Pat,  although we came from different battalions. There were six of uh that  formed a friendship that We all trusted would last through the war, but to  my sorrow I am tbe only one left.  Poor Will was killed and Private  Moneeur was wounded on May 8th, on  tho Oth Ptes. Massey and Kennedy,  who with myself formed Wills most  intimate friends, were wounded whilst  carrying ammunition to the tiring line  under a heavy shell flro. Again I was  the lucky one to escape unhurt, and  on the 12th a shell burst in tho trench  wo were occupying, wounding Private  McLochlin in tho arm, so that waa the  finish of our coniradship as it left me  alone.  Will and the rest' of us left England  on the 10Mi of March and arrived at  Dickobureh on the l.th, when we joined up with the rest of tho battalion.  Our first experience of trench lighting  followed the flame night, and poor  Will hnd tin* unpleasant task of burying Lieut, Wihnott and two men who  wero killed in our trench. We mado  several trips to St, Kloi trenches without a, casualty and then marched to  the towuol' INiporloghe wero wo rested  for ten days and lett there Hauler Monday. Will was iu great spirits and wo  had a gloat time marching to Ypres,  whoro wo   relieved    I-Vouch   troops In  t tn. I i'1'nnliini ui    Piityi^im wihiiIh,  niton),  live miles oiiht. of YpivH.

This  movement was carried out without  the loss of a- sino'le tnan5 but we r>&jd  for it next day, we lost about 160 men  through shell fire, but the worst was  yet to come. We were relieved and  went in to support trenches about three  miles back of the . firing line. Even  there they would not let us rest, and  threw two shells -into the trench that  was occupied by Will's section, whicli  killed four men and severly wounded  seven. That night we, went into the  firing line and worked like fiends building up our trench, but unfortunately  it was to be of ho use.  This was the 7th. At three o'clock  on the morning of the 8th we were relieved by the right half of the-battalion  and Will and Pte. Jack Kennedy and  myself went into a dug-out to sleep.  About 6.30 a.m. we were awakened by  the most hellish bursting of shells anybody ever heard. It is admitted out  here that it was worse than Neuve  Ohapelle, Will proposed that we had  better man the support trenches as we  were out of touch with our company.  We rushed through a storm of shrap-  nell and high explosive shells, and  when we got into tho trench we had  to literally walk over our poor fellows.  We got to the trench o k and had  to sit tight for an hour or so while  they got through tho shelling. At last  the word was passed that the Germans  were advancing, and their artillery  ceased. Will climbed on top of the  parapet and eommonced rapid fire at  them. Thoy must havo had snipers  ont somewhere because poor Will was  hit in the head with a, bullet. I took  what low uliccts he had ami burled  him at nightfall, Pte. Kennedy making a cross to put on the ground, we  could not do much as wo bad to abandon our kit, and at the prosont time  the Germans occupy the woods alongside which he was buried. Poor chap  ho was happy till the last minute and  wo wore counting up the ihinn wo had  hit until that minute, after that our  spirits were gone and it seemed to  bring it nearer to us although oven beforo then tho dead and wounded were  all round but nobody whom wo know.

Banking next to Creston is Enderby  with.every one of nine pupils passing,  one with 791 marks, and the others all  over 600. To Enderby's credit must  also be set down the fact that it is the  only "centre" (two other schools sending pupils there to write) to show a  perfect pass list���������18 out of 13. And a  still more noteworthy feature at End-  erssy.is itxaxi tne ueaeiiers onere nave  only had two months' pay since A the  New Year, and as a consequence the  schools may not re.open after vacation.

In 1884 Joffre was sent to  Formosa, where he won a decoration  and the nickname of "the man with  the eyebrows." A colleague who was  with him in Indo-China said of him*.

Last season she put up only fourteen pints of preserves and thirty  glasses of jelly at a total expenditure  of $4-6S. Almost every housewife  knows that good fruit costs from  twenty-five to thirty-five-cents-*a can  and that jelly, except inferioi^-grades,  cannot be bought for less than fifteen  cents a glass. Homemade products  always bring a better :price than factory-made goods. Thus, in placing _,  value on her preserves and jellies, she  adopted very conservative figures,  with the result that the fourteen pints  and thirty glasses would, if sold in the  open market, net her eight dollars. 'In  other words, to buy at a store just  .what she now has as the result of her  own efforts she would have to pay  nearly twice as much as she actually  paid for the material.  Of course prices vary in different  localities and the fruit must not be  purchased at the beginning of the  season. The sugar used cost four and  a half, six, six and a half and seven  cents a pound, the latter price being  paid for that, used in the grapes and  plums. Even at ten cents a pound  there would have been a good margin  in favor of the homemade product.  ���������C.F.S-, in the Country Gentleman.

First  Tried   Out   in  a Limited   Form,  the Women Now Enjoy the Full  Franchise  Eight years agb the women of Denmark were without the vote in any  sphere of government. The other day  the Danish parliament passed a bill -  conferring unquali"ed franchise on  women- It ljas been a rapid advance  for the suffrage cause. The first victory was gained in 1907, when the  women were given the ballot in the  election of charitable and educational  bodies. A year later the franchise  was extended to women who were taxpayers or the wives of taxpayers in all  elections but those for parliament.  This test of suffrage on a restricted  basis ha.i by its own results won the  wiping out of all political handicaps  on the once voteless sex.

Woodward In Countryside .Magazine*...' ���������  All this was visual to the visitor in  Paris towurd the end of the winter  of 1915, for P.ris was a place of sadness and mourning, but also of heroism aud resolve. Her streets wero  deserted of young men, as indeed is  true of every town and city of France,  and of her fields and vineyards also.  They are all at the front, or in reserve depots, waiting for the order  to launch themselves into the conflict.  "Yes," sajLd a highly Informed and  moderate-minded young .woman of  one of the best families of France,  "Paris- is deserted, and we are proud  of it- \Ve would not have our men  stop behind���������not qne of them.. Where  should they be, if not at the front?"

But  the Parisian visitors of a year ago  would hardly recognize the French  capital of today, so great is the disparity between the teemi ig~-life of the  place then and its comparative mea-  greness now. Also, the atmosphere of  gloom is so great ihat one newly arrived feels it instantly and keenly, although the sensation wears off after  a week or two under the anesthetic of  time and custom. This feeling of depression which falls upon the visiting  observer is deepened by the darkened  streets at night; for while there/is.  light enough to make one's way about  the. central and more frequented thoroughfares, ityet the city.as *a whole is  very sombre after -suns-t.

The question must be approached  from the national standpoint, for the  country's development is built upon  its natural resources, of which agriculture is the most'important. To ss-  cure immigration is important;- to direct it into proper channels in this  country as not of secondary importance.

Birds Help Man to Keep Insects Under Conii ui  The true lords cf the universe are  the insects, according to a .zoological  article in the Smithsonian, annual report,- on the value. o������ birds to men,  in which the author, James Buckland  of London makes the statement that,  although man imagines himself the  dominant power of the earth, he is'  nothing of the sort. Although man  has attained Dredominanco over the  fiercest and most powerful reptiles,  he and his works would be of little  avail before an attack of insects,  ���������which include a. greater, number of  species than all other living creatures  combined. Some 300,000 species have  been described, while possibly twic_  that number still remain unknown.  The author says that, these hordes  feed on noarly all-living''.animals and'  practically all plants, and multiply into prodigious numbers in ah incredibly short time. Computations show  that one species, developing thirteen  generations a year, would, if unchecked A to the twelfth generation, multiply  to ten sextlllions of individuals, while  a single pair of the well known gypsy  moths, if unchecked, would produce in  eight years enough progeny to destroy  all the foliage of the United Stales.  One pair of potato bugs, he states,  would develop unchecked 60,000,000  in a single season, at which rate of  multiplication the potato plant would  not long survive.  According to Mr. Huckland's article, insects arc quite as astounding in  their consuming qualities as in .thoir  rate of increase; a caterpillar eats  twicer-its weight in leaves a day, and  in proportion n horse would consume  a ton of hay In twenty-four hours. Certain 'flesh-eating larvae consume '200  times their original weight in twenty-four hours; in this manner an In-,  faiit would devour 1,500 pounds of  meat during the lirst day of Its life.  It is reported by a specialist that the  food taken by a silkworm In.flfty-slx  days equals 80,000. times its original  weight.

During  the first six months such large sums  of money were pa,id out that a special  session of the legislature was called  to repeal the act before the state wenl  bankrupt.

Canada's Horse Supply  Big  Demand   For  Horses  Will   Likely  Occur * After  Peace   Has   Been  Declared '  The  IftlO   census  gave  3,182,780  as  tho number of horses not on farms.  There has probably not been any appreciable     decrease  in  that  number  since then. That number added to the  21,195,000,   the  number  estimated  by  the     department   of   agriculture,  on  farms January 1st, 101b, makes a total  of over  24,000,000  horses  in  this  country,    and  we  could  sell  two  or  three  times tha number already  exported without thero being an appreciable shortage of work horses. Three  time's*'th6'. number-'of the past year,  or 225,000, would be less than 1 per  cent, of our horse stock. Furthermore,  tho kind of horses which have been  purebnsed are for the most part very  mediocre animals, which would ordin-  orlly pell for loss than'$100 per head  and arc a class of which wc can well  afford to bo rid.   But a small percentage of the unimals t-xportod aro mares  and     most  of these  nro doubtlessly  cither old mares or non-breeders.  Tho big demand for horses will  probably occur after pcaco hns been  declared- At that time the ���������countriG..  now at war,.with.tlio.exception of Russia, will no doiibt be very short of  horses for their agricultural ahd other  work.' According to tho best information obtainable European llunsla had,  prior to tho outbreak of war, about  2C,000,000 Worses, and is tho only,  country having moro.horses than the.  helpless, fumted States". This country and  Ku. sin. together hiivn fiO per cent, of  nil the horses In the world. The  world's slock Is est turn led to be  about 100,000,000.
