Watch.  Next Wooka Paper.  PRESIDENT'S   REPORT  I wish to submit to- you an outline  of-our Union during the year 1913.  First a spirit of harmony should, prevail among the members, this you well  know is essential to success in any  business, but more especially ours.  This business has had a slight increase this season over last and I trust  will increase accordingly next year.  I am pleased to learn that our growers are using their best efforts in packing and preparing their produce for  the market, and I would like to impress on each member the importance  of getting the .goods to the dealer and  also the consumer in the best possible  condition. This is the best advertising  medium that we can offer.  You must understand that this  Union is yet in its infancy and I'con-  sider that - next year wiii be our first  shipping year. '-  You cannot establish a business of  this kind ia one year.  4-~ri4atay fruit- f-rowecs - unions' have  heen in business tor a number of years  and have not accomplished as muoh as  we have in two years.  The warehouse recently built is a  credit to  any Union  or  community".  You are how equipped with splendid  facilities for handling  the '-cuit and  vegetables which- yoii have to:   6*lfer  the market.   ���������','' .--.'VYY"-  ������������������".'��������������������������� ���������'���������.

I find there has been sold through?  this Union over thirty thousi&nd ddlr  lars worth of produce this season.  A pretty fair showing for this little  distriot.  The secretary's report showed the  affairs ofthe Union in better shape  than they hrt/o ever been some considerable gain having been inade over  the previous season.  ' The report Of the directors had the  moEt optimistic ring.   We quote the  Ifoop Tuesday March 17th an opon  date. Tho Irishmen are going to invite you to thoir celebration of St.  Patrick's Dny.  following as afi example: ?  This Company has erected a warehouse which is almost completed, and  which is a credit to the district, and  still more credit, to the Union. And  the Directors wish to thank those who  so cheerfully contributed to its erection either by cash or by labor.  And the Union will now be in far  better shape to take care of your produce, and also give better service to  your supplies.  And the Directors wish here to say  that the work of this Union has only  commenced, and with the support of  aii the growers we should push forward, until we are able to supply all  the needs of our members.  From the report of Auditor S. E.  Watson we quote:  I have the pleasure to report that I  have* audited' the books and accounts  of' yonr; VUiiioii jtar the year ending  December 31, 1913 and that I have  .found the, some in a much improved  cdpdittoh;vall -vouchers being readily  accessible to assist in the work. Some  few improvements are being made  w*;ieh should bring the system up-to-  date.  The figures presented, represent a  true and accurate state of affairs of  the Union as shown by the books and  accounts.

Stanley  Editor and Manager  GOLD     HOLDINGS     OF absorption   of   gold   by   the  THE WORLD  According1 to the estimate  made by the director of the  mint, in his latest report, the  world's stock of gold as at  December   31, '912,   showed  great British dependency.  Argentina, which had practically no stock of gold in 1900  by January   1,1913, had ac*  an increase - of 75 per cent as  compared with  the .estimated  amount on.the corresponding  date in-  1899,  thirteen  before,    says    the   Toronto  World.    Ths figures are $8,  480,700,000 and $4,841,000,000  the increase being ������3,639,700,  000 of which or nearly one*  quarter,  was secured  by the  United     States.    The    next  greatest increase was made by  France, which up to 1909 had  added   $389,400,000    to   her  stock, while India, at the end  of 191c, made a gain of $351,  800,000 upon a- stock of only  $22,-00,000 in  1900.    This is  by far the largest proportional, increase,  and   sufficiently  lllut.traUy    the    phenomenal  cumulated no less than $281,  400,000,  a sti iking  proof of  the volume of   its production.  Canada, during the same period,   raised    her   gold    stock  from $20,000,000 to $147,800,  years 000 or more than seven times.  The United Kingdom increased from $486,700,000 to $730,  900,000 but as thc creditor of  of the world  has a  large reserve    represented    in    the  hoardings of other countries;  This great increase in the  world's stock of gold has no  doubt been an clement in the  rise of prices  which has been  so  marked  during the year  covered  by the report of the  director of the  mint.    Yet as  compared the even  vaster development    in    the    world's  business.   It bos proved none  tbo much ior  the needs of to  day.   Little,  metal taken by India and  Egypt has heen returned, and  this withdrawal has been serious enough to become an  important lactor in exchange.  The future,. too, is not with-  L \  out its elements  of uncertainty.    The Rand  mines, for so  long  the   principal contributors to the  world's gold supply, have apparently passed  their   zenith   and   so far no  other source  promises to fill  their place.    But during  the  year  when  their   production  decreases other deposits ma|  be discovered sufficient to redress     the    balance.    British  Guiana,   for example,  where  ouly the "coastal  fiinge   has  beeu explored,  is said  to possess   valuable  potentialities,  and the wonder is  why this  obscure British possession has  uot   been   more   thoroughly  prospected.    In the immedi-'  ate future attention   will be  concentrated on the operation  of the new  banking and currency law���������m the United S'atcs  which, some ^thoritie*? hold,  may   result   in a   release Jojf  part at leastor the $1,870,500,  000 standing  at  credit of our  neighbor's    gold    account.���������^  Daily Neyvs.  In Montreal the other day  a man was arrestel for stealing groceiki* from a passing  delivery wagon. It was shown  yellow in evidence that the stealing  had been prompted by a desire  to secure food for a starving  family, but the judge sent the  offender to jail for tv/o months.  Only a few week s before in a  Montreal court a young man,  who was found guilty of embezzling a large amount of  money, which his father replaced, wa*j allowed to go on  suspended sentence.   _  No doubt the grocery thief  deserved some punishment,  his excuse, however good, not  being good enough to justify  his illegal act. But how in  the name of justice can it be  figured that a two months sentence for him was not too  severe in the face of a suspended sentence for the other  culprit? The only explanation possible under the circumstances is that so long as  the passing of sentence' remains in the hands of mortals  there are bound to be freak  ���������decisions, as the temperments  of individuals vary and as the  livers of the judges happen  to be in or out of order from  time to time.  Note of another bit of legal  foolishness comes from Toronto, Where two boys, found  guilty of minor offense, were  fined $i each, with the alternative of a fail sentence. The  youngster, not having the  coin, went to jail, and Toronto papers  are asking  why so  nillJ   UHliU  Iii  _ *    8   H  ��������� ���������  I I.

The system of optioual fine  or imprisonment operates for  class distinction, which the  law has no right to recognize.  Charged with similnr offenses  the poor man goes to jail  while the rich man pays the  fine aiid goes free- If a  crime ia deserving of jail sen  tence, jail it should be, without fine option. If fine pun-  i diluent is sufficient and the  offender is at the moment unable to pay he should be regarded as a debtor to the state,  is the opinion of the Toronto  vStnr, nnd the money collected1  from him iust as city taxes  would be. There is reasonableness in the suggestion.���������  Calgary Herald*  mt'itmimmiimmtm  mmmmmsmmm  mim***m*mmtaammm  ���������-nnMiiiii-- 'mm General Repair  Done by  ,W. B.

Algerian Almost. OdcHsss Onion Me>  ; Be Valuable In America."  AlUum triaoetrum, one of tbe onion  tribe, a native of southern Europe and  common on the coast Of Algeria, gives  ���������vldence of being of considerable value  aa a vegetable. The plants are raised  from seed or.from.the bulbs, which  form in large* numbers. Tbe bulbs  planted deeply in good soil produce  large plants, tbe underground portion  of which are white, tender and succulent . The green leaves are removed,  the sarnie as with onions, tbe balance  of the stem part forming a delicate  vegetable, with almost no odor of  onion. This may prove a valuable  vegetable for growing in our southon*  states. Only actual tests will prove  what It may do in the north. The experiments with this old plant as a.now  vegetable wero conducted by Or. Tm-  but, president; of tbe Horticultural no-  ciety of Algiers,  Trap of the Fourmilion.  "In tbe Sahara," said an explorer,  "there is a little insect that throws  sand and its volleys slay. Tbey call it  the fourmilion. The fourmilion digs  itself a funnel shaped hoie of the circumference of a silver dolldft. It lies  hidden and watchful in tbe bottom of  this hole,,and when a spider or ant or  beetle comes' cautiously? prospecting  down tbe steep and slippery sides the  inhospitable fourmilion launches upon  its- guest-voiley after volley of sand���������a  bail ������f stinging sand so abundant so  suffocating, so blinding that the visitor  loses its head. Ee rolls unconscious  for tbe nonce to the bottom of the  bole, and the fourmilion calmly dia-  members him before be1 has time to  come to himself again and puts bim  tn the larder for the next meal."  ��������� T   ' nvpSfu.  An Irishman knocked at a door one  day and asked the lady of the houKe,  who was very ugly, if she could belp  him. as bo was hard up and on the  road.  "indeed I'll not" she replied.
