The folks spent a-couple of  hours enjoying themselves on the  Nasookin, and judging by the nuniber  of cameras along everyone from the  captain down must havc had their  "pictures took." It must be said that  Engineer Ogilvie did his best to enter-;  tain his guests, by several times nearly  scaring them to death by his steam  whistle.  Last year T had it on good  authority that the loss on the  apple crop in this Valley was,  owing to lack of moisture, and  irrigation, one-third of what it  Would have been.  This year that experience is  being repeated in a more severe  form, possibly half a -possible  orop, if heavy rains do not  ensue shortly.  In addition to these losses, at  what figure should we show the  loss in bay* and berry orops from  the same cause ?  In a fow years from now we  should be shipping out 300 oar-  loads of apples alone. If another  dry season occurs, then with  like results there would be an  avoidablo loss of 100 oars���������taking  apples alone. What figure does  that represent in dollars ?  If any rancher horo to-day  had a oreolc running to waste  within half a mile bf his ranoh,  which he could got the use of  for just the trouble of digging a  ditch to it, ho would go at it at  onoo. ..  Because a huudrod ranohorn  can got all thu water necesHary  for their ranches and houses,  six miles away, add thoroby 50  nor oont. to the value of (htiir  holdings, nothing is done, aud  yet I know many of thorn to  whom it is a vital necessity.  What, eir, to the   matter with  ihS nmnmm 11 nitv of n������^ofcv*������ 9  Canyon City  Raspberry Export  Slightly Lighter  A couple of very welcome showers  that the Valley was favored with the  early part of the week, conpied with  very much cooler weather, is carrying  the raspberry crop along in rather  good style, judging by the size of this  fruit now coming in as well as the  quantity. Had the scorching heat of  mid-July prevailed until now the  raspberries would have been practically off the shipping list, except on those  ranchers where water is available.  As it is the records of the Fruit Grow-  ers: Union up to the end of July show  a falling off in shipping of less than  200 crates, and this despite the fact  that the early part of the 1916 season  was rather more favorable than 1917  .has been. There has been no further  slump in market prices and indications  are that for the rest of the season the  price will at least hold its'own, if. not  improve. Every day now the Union  is sway short of fruit, to fill orders  offering.  Few   sweet    cherries    are   moving  now.   Considering     that   this    year  these were shipped   in the four-basket V :  crate, instead   of pint cups as was the  fashion   a  year  ago,   the   price   per' -  pound that the   grower will receive  will slightly better than in 1916, while  the total shipments will run to about   ;  the same figure.;   . ;       ;  The   first   of   the   1917   cucumbers;/  should- be shipping  before the 10th;  but the export of these  will   not glut  the market.   The Union clients will  have'a.matter of 300 crates possibly,  while   the indepedent   shipping   will  hardly exceed that figure.   This will  meanVa falling off as compared with -  last;_yea*c of ^almost^^OO^ crates, a������ 1916  Report -figures were^bse _to   the 800  ]ma^PAp^':'A:''^:'r^A.^A-^    - '       PPaP  ���������:-_;'T6inatoes,.too, will be moving next/  Week also.    VVhile  the totalVciop wiiiVV  not. be over -4000 crates, the market  never opened, better for them .than are '  the prospects just now.   On a 4000-  crate estimate   the   tomato growers  will a little more than hold their own  with hist year -when only a little over  3000 of the ripe sort were shipped from  here.  Some idea of the raspberry shortage  over the whole province may be  gleaned from the prairie markets  commissioner's report issued Satur.  Bay, in which that gentleman more or  less wisely states that instead of B.C.  having 50 cars of berries to ship this  season it wiiil do welt to have Jo of  them.  ���������%:������������������.'--'-������'���������4^1  ������������������vs. j*J*j������S!  ���������yi-.n^ft-S  m  ::y#;gsMl3  .- .y&^Lt&tm  ������������������ ���������-���������.���������,*yvji}^saa  ApMim  -/Iii  July was another busy month at the  shipping end "of the Canyon City  Lumber Co. businesb. 41 cars " of  lumber were loaded out as well as a  car of posts.

It was a proprietary  club, and its. proprietor, Mr. Barthelemy, was regarded as a benefactor  ���������a private benefactor���������by those ladies and gentlemen who had the privilege of his acquaintance. It occurred to the master mind of Mr. Barthelemy that in view of the absurd restrictions of the English licensing  laws, it was impossible for pebble so.  minded to eat supper in peace and ( __  comfort after thc theatre at any place! 5  controlled by those laws.

He also knew  how to be extremely rigid as to the  character, capabilities, and financial  standing of the people who came  within that membership. iMr. Barthelemy always kept one strict rule before him in all he did in connection  with the Amaranth���������Absolute Outward Respectability.

It would have been impossible to  say a word against the Amaranth  Club; impossible for the. most lynx-  eyed sp>���������if such could have got in  ���������to lay a finger on anything in connection with it and say this is an  evasion of thc law. Mr. Barthelemy  was a man of* infinite painstaking  where particulars were concerned.  The name of his club, thc objecj of  his' club, the. address of his club, his  own name, as secretary and proprietor,  were all duly registered.

Prince Died Like a Sport  The Kaiser's Nephew Told His Cap-  "' -' tors of Happy Days in England  Glimpses of thc last clays of Prince  Karl   Fricdricli  nephew of the kaiser,  who   was   wounded when  flying    and  taken   prisoner  by    the    Australians,  are given in the account sent to England by the Rev. M. Caldwell, a Baptist minister,  who is official  chaplain  lo lhe German  prisoners in  the gen-|  oral hospital in  France. It appears in  the  British   Weekly.  .. "The Australians, whose prisoner I  became,"  the prince  told    Mi*.   Caldwell,   "treated   mc   with   the   greatest  kindness.    They arc  sportsmen    and  p-rcat men.

Thc  Australians  were  good  to   me;   the  officers     and  soldiers     who   attended   mc     coming  down   the   line,   were   very   considerate,  and   thc   whole    atmosphere     of  this hospital is kindness.    1 am gr.ite-  ful to you and all who wish me well:  I  lie here  a helpless  prisoner, but   I  have no regrets.

AUG.   3  Motion* Piomsm  One can hardly pick up a daily  paper nowadays without being  -confronted with a more or less  thunderous pronouncement from  Mr. Hanna, Canada's food controller, to the effect that if we do  not out out second helpiugs, stop  eating between meals, have one  meatless day a week and one  wheatless meal a day, etc, eta,  the hated  Hun %* ill yet  win the  jmow that the Brewstar administration has finally named the  gentlemen who will comprise the  land settlement board���������the otgatir  ization that will supervise agrioul -  tural affairs generally in B.C-���������  with the minister of lands in  sympathy with the community-  farming scheme for the agriculturally-inclined returned soldier, and  the    Kootenay    Flats    generally  auinitted  VIIO  -.11 -3  C*11-������.XJU11U  ���������J ���������I  iueai  ��������� A.   *  *%***.*���������* rmt*+**^+*tr%-*r.    /"���������������������  TW1 ���������"���������W1IOV* ������pi  tion.  While to most folks hereabouts  Mr. Hanna's observations are  entirely wasted, due to the fact  that few of us have the price to  indulge iu big eats, it might be  well to insist that in such a time  of crisis people are looking to a  controller, clothed with all the  authority we are assured Mr.  Hanna has vested in him, for  something more than good advice.  Definite positive action is what is  wanted. He should issue specific  orders and should use tbe powers  of his oflSce to see. that these orders  are obeyed.  There Is little use in making  speeches or issuing reports, tilled  with vague suggestions. A recommendation to eat the perishable  foods and to conserve the more  durable article of diet, is not  particularly helpful It is not  specific enough.  location for such an undertaking  in this province, if ever the stage  seemed set for action ou reclamation surely this is the accepted  time.  And, aside from the returned  soldier angle of the affair, it would  look as if the Valley is at present  coiiafcituted���������this year a little more  forcibly than others, maybe���������  recognizes a very necessary asset in  these lands once reclaimed. Due  to no mismanagement on their  part the past four years have been  rather lean ones for the fruit  rancher, and the future is no more  assuring. With ten or more acres  of these Hats available to every  rancher for hay and grazing lands,  dry weather, embargos and low  fruit prices would not be quite the  nightmare these things are just  now���������and more or less   rightly so.  Situation Bmprovos  Conscription is coming along  fairly satisfactory. The measure  is now before the Canadian senate,  which legislative body will most  likely dispose of it before the week  . is out. Whether it will become  i effective forthwith,   or  be   held   in  . | ab&yance until  after the Dominion  *   .1S wan        general election   which  is counted  is a clear statement  of just   what  should be* done, and when.  If Mr. Hanna thinks wheat  should be economized by forbidding  the further manufacture of white  flour, let him issue instructions  accordingly. If he thinkt> the  meat supply ought, to be eked out  by having one or two fish days per  week let him say so, and let him  see that the butcher thoroughly  understands it. The people do not  want any further eloquent ex-  hortrtions.    They want actian.  i      n������. nn. i..  Moro Motion  At last it begins to look as if the  Kootenay Flats reclamation scheme  is about to get somewhere. Tomorrow those interested in it in  Idaho are meeting at Bonners  Perry to confer with the drainage  experts from Washington to try  and determine just where things  ���������ire at and formulate plans for  immediate action to get the U.S.  interest in it down to definite  shape,  At the Creston board of trade  conference with John Keen, M.P.P.  last week that gentleman informed  that the B.C. government had  given him positive assurance that  a meeting of all those interested,  both in Canada and the United  States, will he held at Victoria in  October to go into the whole  reclamation scheme.  Both these gatherings may be  .said to be about the firs*, likely  looking moves that have been instituted to determine just whore  both countries aro at on thc project, as well as to go into snch  data as both may have collected  bearing on the feasibility and  worth-whiteness of thc undertaking.  While Tub Risvfcw in all too  woll aw aro Unit, governments move  nlowjy on million dollar projects  ���������>f this sort, it seems to un that wo  arc on thc eve of getting action  worthy of that word in thin connection���������more particularly duo to  the nocc&nity   of  doing something  on in October or November, is  almost the burning question of the  day���������now local bush fires are  under control and Saturday's rain  has temporarily abated all danger  of that sort.  Within two weeks open hostility  to the move has dwindled measurably. The fire-eaters in Quebec,  who were taking armed resistance  even, in case compulsory military  service is resorted to, are heard  from much less frequently, and  their audiences of applauding  supporters have declined in like  manner, according to press reports*  Support of the legislation has  developed unexpectedly all over in  Canada. With Russia once more  failing to even hold her own in  minor fighting . on the eastern  frrnt, coupled with some very plain  facts Canadians have learned of  the hardships our troops are enduring in France���������some of the men  who have been in the trenches  ovor two years not being able to  get a matter of three months leave  due to insufficient reinforcements  available���������along with unqualified  support from the press irrespective  of politioal learnings, has had a  wonderfully settling effeot on  normal public opinion.  Just where the Liberal press  stands is revealed in one of several  resolutions passed at a gathering of  Ontario Grit editors at Toronto  last Thursday. Here it is: ''It is  essential that out* troops be backed  up by the needed reinforcements  and that the Liberal party in  Ontario should stand squarely for  compulaory military aorvico, and  that no candidate should bo supported who will not support thia"  During last wook, too, tho  government kicked tho legs out  from under those who have boon  making tho nou-consoription of  wealth their excuse for not volunteering for military Horvieo or for  opposing tho conscription bill, by  introducing legislation that taxes  incomes ovor $2000 in oaao of single  mon, and 08,000 whon tho man is  married, a matter of 4  por cent.  .. ������������,. .... *   ,>r. *������..-  well an, indirectly, hoping to" speed  up ugi'ioiilt itrul piodtu't.ion.  tJ>������      ������������������������������-  v.jKJi     ji.4(<i������<ij./jij������*    nti|nji '-tt***.  othor 2 per  cunt, and  moro  whon  the inooine runa from $0,000 up.

Reduction in English  Live Stock  The expectation is, according to  The Farmer and Stock Breeder, that  live stock holdings in the United  Kingdom will have to be reduced by  20 per cent, owin^ to feed shortage.  It is not anticipated that there will  be any forced diminution in purebred meat animals and thc dairy  stock will stand next in line for conservation. Horses, especially those  kept for pleasure purposes, will be  put on short feed, and it is quite possible some of them may be used for  human  food.  This, however, is only part of a  change which is promised in English  agriculture. Three million acres of  grazing lands are to be broken up  this year, and more will be broken  next year, the intention being to put  the United Kingdom in a position to  bc permanently practically independ-  of foreign food supplies so far as  grain is concerned.

It Is believed that thousands who  wear glasses can now discard them in  a reasonable time, and multitudes more  Will he able to strengthen their eyes  ������o as to be spared the trouble and expense of ever getting glasses.  Dr. Beck, an eye specialist of nearly  twenty years practice, says: "A patient  came to me who was suffering from  Blepharitis Marginal is with all the  concomitant     symptoms,     as     morning  Tho condition was so serious that an  operation for enucleation seemed imperative. Before resorting1 to the  operative treatment I prescribed Bon-  Opto and in 24 hours the secretion had  lessened, inflammatory symptoms began to subside, and in seven day3 the  eye was cured and retained its normal vision. Another caso of extreme  convergent strabismus (cross eyes)  escaped the surgeon's knife by the  timely use of your collyrium. The  tightened external muscles yielded to  tho soothing and anodyne effects of  Bon-Opto. I always instil Bon-Opto  after removal of foreign bodies and  apply it locally to all burns, ulcers  and spots on the eyeball or the lids  for its therapeutic effect. By cleansing the lids of secretions and acting  as a tonio for. the eyeball itself the  vision is rendered more acute, hence  the number of cases of discarded  glasses."  Dr. Conner 3ays:    "My eyes ���������were In  agglutination  u������ the lids, chronic con-1 bad   condition   owing   to    the   severe  strain  arising* from  protracted, micro*  Boopical research work.   Bon-Opto'used   .  according to directions rendered a surprising service.    I  found  my eyes remarkably  strengthened,  so  much so  1  have put aside my g-lassos without discomfort.   Several of my colleagues havo  also used  it and wo  ave  agreed as ta  its results.    In a few days, under my  observation, the eyes of an astigmatic*  caso   wero 'fo   improved   that   glasses  havo been discarded by tho patient." ���������'.'  Eye   troubles   of   many   descriptions  may  be  wonderfully  benefited  by  tha  use   of Bon-Opto   and  if you "want  to  strengthen your eyes, go to any drug  store  and   get   a. bottle   of   Bon-Opto  tablets,    inrop  one  Bon-Opto  tablet  ih.  a fourth oi! a glass of water and let it  dissolve.    With   this  liquid   bathe   the-  eyes   two   to   four   times   daily--, Yott  should notice your, eyes clear up perceptibly right, from the start, and inflammation   and   redness   will   quickly  disappear.     If   your   eyes   bother   you  even a little   it is your  duty to  take  steps  to   save   them  now  before  it Is  too late.    Many hopelessly blind might  have saved their, sight if they had oared  for their eyes in time. ���������'. ���������  Note:    A city physician to whom t&������ afcova  article was submitted, enld:   "Yes, Bon-Opto is  a remarkable, eyo remedy.

LINGERING WEAKN  FOLLOWING DISEASE  Banished   by   the    Wonderful    Tonic  Powers of Dr. Williams'  Pink Pills  Mow often victims  oi disease  such  as   la   grippe,   fevers,   or     contagious  troubles are left weak, ailing and despondent  after  the  disease  itself    has  disappea-ied.     They   do   not   pick   up  strength   as   they  ought;   remain   listless; tired and discouraged. The reason  for   this  is   that   the  blood** has  been  impoverished by thc  ravage  of  the disease through which thc victim  has   passed.     Strength     will   nol   return  until the blood has been enriched.

The Home Water Supply  Abundance of Water    Elevates    the  General Tone of the  Material  Side of Living  Water in the house, lo use lavishly for all wholesome conveniences,  seems at first thought beyond the  means of frugal people, who havc  earned by hard labor all they havc  to spend. To many, who have not  closely con-ride; ed tin*; costs and thc  benefits, it appears an extravagance.  Instead of that it is one of the greatest of house economies. Almost every farmer could afl'ord the. luxury of  .ill water conveniences in his home.  Like their fellows, sunshine, wholesome food and fresh air, they do not  weaken the muscular, mental or moral fibres of life.

Tunnelling tlse ���������  English Channel  ������������������ /' Pa   :"��������� ''������������������ ������������������������������������'.  Whatthe Value Would be Is Brought  Home During War Times  War,, that for long years has filled  ,Englishmen's minds with fear of invasion if a funnel were to be'''built  under the English channel; strangely enough has pointed the very wisdom of the great undertaking. If  there had "been a tunriel under the  English channel during this war,  Great Britain would have been relieved of- the task of conveying to and  ivo from Frnace the transports and  hospital ships which convey men and  lmtnitions and wounded and sick to  and from the battlefields of France.  The allies could laugh at threatening  submarines in those waters. All these  things the Englishman sees today,  and it is more '-"than likely that one of  the first great after-the-war engineering feats that will be undertaken will  be thc construction of thc . English  channel tunnel.  At a recent meeting of the Royal  Geographical society in London, Sir  Francis Fox explained that owing to  the necessity of keeping the tunnel  well within the thickness of the  grey chalk''that is characteristic of  the southern limits of England, there  wou'id be a slijght curve. The maximum depth of water over the channel would be from 160 to 180 feet,  and the roof of chalk over thc structure has been fixed at a minimum  of 100 feet.  The tunnel would consist of two  tubes of 18 Teet diameter. All the  Avork would be doYie by electrically-  driven machinery; and excavation  and other operations would be carried on simultaneously- at many  points, aiid a record speed would be  reached. The tunnel could be. worked and ventilated and pumped by  electricity from a. Kent power-station  ten miles inland.  The tunnel would have a dip in the  level of the rails forming a water-  lock bv which the tunnel could, ~in  case of emergency, be filled with water from floor to roof for the length  of a mile. This would bc-under control of Dover Gastle, and the entrance  and exit of both tunnels would be under the gun-fire of the D6vcr forts.  Trains would be run direct from  London to Paris in less than six  hours, and passengers would be able  to go from London to Constantinople, Petrograd, and by thc Siber-  ian"express to the Far East without  change of carriage.

Among these is "liquid  fire," a* weapon of value principally  because of its demoralizing effect upon those attacked. There have been  casualties resulting from liquid lire,  but it is the psychological effect that  is sought.  . The apparatus usually- consists of  a metal tank holding about four gal-  lojis ot liquid to bc burned, a section  of pipe from this tank to a rubber  hose at thc other'eud, in which there  is a smaller metal pipe about,a yard  long lilted with a nozzle and a friction igniter, as welj as an oil-burning wick.

Benzol, from coal tar, and crude oil  are'used in equal proportions ,and arc  carried in the tank under a pressure  of approximately 300 lbs. per square  inch, this pressure being maintained  by compressed nitrogen, an inert gas  having no effect, upon the contents  of the lank. The tank and accessories  are carried by one man, while the  nozzle is carried by a companion  when liquid is being burned. Or it  may be  by "lhe  lank.  .

The most far-reaching understandings arrived at have been in trade  .matters. In general the United States  will give thc Allies preferential treatment .in commerce. Details, however,  could not be agreed upon, as congress lfas not yet passed the legislation necessary to deal with embargo,  trading with the enemy, control of  cargo space, and the like.  A  definite  understanding  has beett  reached to cover both American and  Canadian wheat for sale to the Allied*  wheat executive.    Canada will co-operate (fully  with   the  U.S.,   probably  through  the  proposed  food administration . bureau j- and. will agree to th^  control   of  prices   if  that  policy    bq  Adopted in legislation now before the  U.S. congress.

An English metallurgist, in  gathering together some rods of steel  which had lain a long time in his  laboratory, noticed that while most  of tlicm wx'vo badly rusted or stained, a .few were as bright as when  originally made. This led to the present discovery and manufacture of  the steel.  aiu's experience have been invaluable  in, guiding American officials and  lessons learned by Britain havc proved decisive on many points of policy.
