Ship Two Mhced  Cars Daily Now  - The carload fruit and vegetable  shipping season is getting nicely  under way at Creston Growers,  Limited, warehouses at both Creston  and 'Erickson, ^his week's outgo  averaging, at least two cars daily of  mixed products, tapst of the cars '  running about sixty per cent, apples,  and the balance off the load divided  between pears, crafaapples, plums,  with a showing off .cucumbers, peppers  and tomatoes in the  vegetable line.  So far there has been no trouble in  finding buyers,for these cars 9a ������sst aa  they are loaded, hut- due to the email  -acreage planted to soiuatoes this year  many orders have--had to-be refused  as there nas not been enough tomatoes  to meet the re-QHsr-snaejits of ^h~f qslss  offering, and this has had th*. effect"  of shortening up sales of peppers and  cucumbers, the latter, particularly,  being onty wanted in a ratio of one  to three of tomatoes.  In connection with the healthy demand for theee mixed cars Manager  Staples states that so far there haa not  been - a   single  rebate  asked- for  on  account nf stuff arriving in poor-eoo-  dition,   but  this   fortunate  state -of  affairs can onlv be maintained provided growers   respond- promptly   with  their fruit when advised to bring it in.  Too-ripe plums  are a likely source of  trouble and In all cases these, will be  shipped at growers risk.  "- Some growers are inclined  to hesitate in   bringing  in - their   Wealthys  because   of   a -rather   poor  show, off  coior^ but it should  be borne in mind  that Just now.&he market..ie  been for  ^^e^it^-fa and the wis������ thing is^o-ge^  then-QiCf** bayers* .bands  while  tfa������  demand is good rather than sell later  when it is quite   certain- the   market .  ^will nut he as /������-?ror*ibl*K.   jSs������ t~s.tr tlutwi  has-been no-complaint as to color*  -Up to thp* present the season's pools  have tieett closed -on sti-awberfie������,  raspbers'ieK, ourrants and cherries and  general satisfaction is e-xpressrd .on  the returns received on all these lines.

E. Atkinson will be in charge off  the big Creston warehouse this year,  and expects to have the grader at  work before the end of the week*  Frank Putnam ie in charge of the  Erickson warehouse where it is  expected only a bench pack will be  put up.  The first car of export apples will  roll from Erickson on Monday. This  is a lot of about 600 boxes of Cox  Orange Pippin, whian are going to  London, England.  Up to the present every car shipped  has been sold f.o.b. Creston at prices  that'will compare quite favorably  with last -season, and the Growers,  Limited, management is quite optimistic that in the apple line 1*022 prices  will be equalled.  Manager    Staples _. In    particularly  pleased with tho facilities provided in  the big Union warehouse, both  in the  way   off expeditiously   handling   the  packing, uop well as the splendid storage  facilities.     The   cool   basement   into  which the packed boxes   are   immediately transferred assures that apples  going out   immediately   go   into   the  refrigerator cars   in   prime   condition  for transport, whilst  the frost   proof  basement give* ideal   winter  storage  for  appr&ixitixiately    thirty    carloads.

C.  and the choicest of Red Rose Teas is the  ORANGE PEKOE QUALITY unmatched  for fragrance and exquisite flavor. a  Ihe Approaching Jtlarvest  According to the most reliable reports by "banks, elevator companies, railways aad Government departments available at the time oE writing this article, Western Canada is on the eve of harvesting the greatest wheat crop in its  history. Conditions in. all three Prairie Provinces are reported as being  uniformly favorable, with losses and adverse conditions applicable .only to  comparatively small and isolated districts. ���������������������������'���������-"   J        '-  The net result is a generally accepted estimate of a crop of 509,000,000  bushels of'-wheat, not to speak of other grains. Such a production means  hundreds of millions of bushels as an exportable surplus, for -which Canada  must find a market in other countries. At the same time it is estimated that  the United States will have an exportable surplus of 200,000,000 bushels as  well as a surplus carried over from last year. Crop conditions in Australia  and the Argentine are reported as good, and it is even predicted that Russia  will have wheat for export, although the condition of the Russian transportation systems may make shipment difficult.  "With such a volume of wheat for sale it is inevitable that world prices  will fall, especially as some of the European nations which in pre-war years  were large buyers of wheat are^now unable to purchase largely because of  their depreciated currency and lack of credit. The sale of the 1923 wheat crop at  a price which -will yield a fair margin of profit to the farmer is, therefore,  one of the biggest problems confronting Canada at the present time.  Another problem created by such a record crop as now seems well nigh  assured is the obtaining of a sufficiently large army of harvest hands to see it  safely garnered and threshed. It is estimated that from "50,000 to 60,000 men  will have to be brought into the West for this purpose. With a heavy call  for farm labor there is danger of unduly high wages being demanded���������that is.,  wages higher than the selling price of the wheat will warrant the farmer paying. It would se'em, therefore, a wise precaution for farmers to take-to write  friends and relatives in the "East inviting them to come out and assist them  in the harvest.  A third big task which the 1923 crop will impose on the country is the  work of-transportation. Fortunately, both our big- railway systems are well  equipped for the task, and better equipped than ever before. Increased terminals facilities have also been created, and unless there is congestion jn boat  traffic on the Lakes, all should go well. Present prospects, also, are for a  comparatively early harvest, and this will prove a most helpful factor both in  harvesting and threshing operations and in transportation.  "With a heavy crop alt, over the country to be threshed, there will be apprehension among some farmers that they will not be able to get threshed  within reasonable time after cutting, and consequently a temptation to purchase their own outfits, although such an investment may be considerably  beyond their resources and they may lack the experience necessary to successful operation of threshing machines. Wisdom would dictate a policy of  "going slow" in the purchase of very expensive machinery on the strength oi  one   exceptionally  heavy  crop  and   present  conditions.  On the other hand, with no Wheat Board in existence and no possibility  ot creating a voluntary co-operative pooling system for this year's crop, great  necessity exists for the most extensive co-operation by individual farmers  in their respective local districts. They should endeavor to devise local  methods of co-operation, whereby, instead of competing one one against the  other, they would pool their efforts in the engagement and distribution of farm  help, in ihe securing and distribution of threshing outfits* in the marketing"  aud selling oi" their crops, aa?!, in general, in the development of plans calculated lo advance their mutual interests.  Such local co-operative arrangements have proved of value and substantial profit to farmers in certain districts in past, year's. Some scheme can be  devised in most districts if the farmers only get together to work it ���������out.  What is applicable in one place may not bo feasible elsewhere, btit If a spirit  Ou mutual eonfidnet?, of a willingness to compromise differences, of fair play,  1'V^Vi-iils ir. any given district, untold advantages will accrue to those who  i-aak*-1 an earnest attempt at local co-operation the one with the other.  The  Radio  and Geography  Large Radio, Stations Assist in Transmitting Time Signals  The whole earth.-is beginning to-be  fairly .���������well-; harnessed -up with ������*"$������  works of.1' botlvcommunication^a-Sd  measurement; much filling r*emains,J.o  be done, but above all the large links*  must be accurately measured.

Now ^large-  radio stations transmit some system  of time signals, preferably either seconds beats or a scientific vernier  series as do the French stations, and  these are received at the various observatories of the world where accurate clocks are maintained and frequent star observations are used to  check them. - Differences of longitude  are deduced from these almost daily  throughout the ytar and the results  show very interesting systematic  cyclic changes ot" a fraction of a sec-  jond which are far above any errors to  be expected from, either the clocks or  observations,"and these are being studied by international co-operation  among the observatories.

The- Power to Enjoy  You may think, in looking out upon  the world, that the great difference  between people is that some have  many things to enjoy and others very  few; when you know them better you  will find that a greater difference is  that some have great power to enjoy  and others very little.���������Rhondda Williams.  Essentials For Healthy Existence  Doctors tell us to walk on the sunny  side_of the road. One famous physician said the other day that to do so  may add ten years to our life.

The Bible is Illuminated by artists  of the 15th century and is regarded by  antiquarians as the finest specimen of  its kind in existence. During his stay  in Switzerland, Karl, being short ot  money, sold the rare book to a London  antiquary, "who in turn disposed of it  to its present owner in Italy.  Canada, too, has its "Valley of the  Kings."_ It is not the gold-lapped  remains of human kings which repose in* this western valley, but the  bones of ancient kings of the wild  lands which stretched across this continent many centuries before man  made his earliest appearance.  These dinosaur kings, who tyrannized over the smaller creatures in  that early age, now rest their enormous bones beneath the earth in  the "Bad Lands" each of the city of  Calgary. Here, the prairie soil is interrupted and the deep canyon of  a river marks the border of the Red  Deer Valley, where the dinosaurs rested until man's curious hand, aided  by machinery necessary for the task,  took out of their ancients graves' the  bones of the megatherions which  form objects of great interest in the  national museums today.  Once, according to geologista, the  bottom of the Bad Lands was the bed  of"an inland sea, along the shores of  which lived the huge lizard-like creatures whose skeletons have only recently been discovered there.  The western "Valley of the Kings"  was practically unexplored until a  few years ago, when the first amazing  bones -were found by diggers.

'  Some of the monsters which are  now being exhumed were carnivorous.  * Others were merely herbiverous. Sonid  walked on four legs, others on two.  The earlier beasts had huge bodies  and small, weak legs, and were built  somewhat on the daschund principle.  They wallowed about like present-day  crocodiles, never going far from the  water. Later, they developed stronger limbs, and began to balance themselves- on hind legs and tail, assuming  a kangaroo-like appearance. Their  immense size has never been exceeded.  Some of the animals were encased  in a kind of armor. Others were altogether sea reptiles, provided with  flippers in place of feet. Still others  were like huge bats, smaller than tho  land animal*. Remains of the latter  are scarce.    .  In a single valley of the Red Deer  River have been found bones representing several hundred of these pre-  liistoric beasts. The favorite sec-���������.  tion for tourists is in Dead Lod^e  Canpn. Here have been found duckbilled, horned and crested remains,  many o������ them representing specimens hitherto unknown. The most  perfect carnivorous dinosaur skeleton  .ever found anywhere came from this  valley, and is now to be seen at the  Royal Victoria Museum, in Ottawa.  Investigations of the wonders of the  Bad Lands valleys has been going on  since 1SS4, when the first dinosaur remains were reported by J. B. Tyrell,  Dominion Government sui-veyor, but  follow-up work began only recently.  So great bas interest in this section of the country become, that the  Canadian Pacific Railway has arranged for parties of tourists to visit.  the place this summer, the valley can  be reached by motoring from the  town of-.Brooks, on the C.P.R. main  line, 110 miles east of Calgary and 66  miles   west  of   Medicine   Hat.

The  dinosaurs' remains are buried in the  Edmonton and Belly River formations, formed by the waters of this inland sea. The ground where they  lived was low and swampy, covered  with hugh rushes    and    jungle   grass  'Determined To Stop  Bootlegging In Furs  Plans Made to Enforce Game Laws of  Each Province  Bootlegging in furs from one province to another.is to be stopped, M.

SEP.T If  lETTFR^ TO  TUE  inc  rniTftn  OJIItlJi  Game Warden Unnecessary ?  Editor Review:  Sir;���������T would appreciate it very  much if I might have space to  enter a protect against a local  paragraph in yonr laBt week's  paper, in which you state that at  the'August meeting of Creston Rod  and Gun Club it was decided that  another letter be sent "to Col. Mc-  Mullen, chief hf'-provincial police,  urging upon him the necessity of  immediately appointing - a game  warden for this district,*"  My objection to.^uoli an appoint  ment is that if infiiets' an 'altogether unnecessary expense on the  community at a time when everybody is practising eixforeed economy in every possible direction.  And I use the words ''unnecessary expense" advisedly because it  seems to me that if an organization  with the representative membership I am led to believe the Hod  and Gun Club has cannot success-:  fully enforce respect for the game  laws what hope would there be for  a special officer in a stretch of  country which, I presume, would  embrace the whole Kaslo electoral  district.  The last game warden we had'  was Frank Call end er, as enthusiastic a sportsman as one could wish  to meet, and in the -whole year and  a half he held the, position I can  only recall him making one prosecution���������that of a man using an  automatic gun duck shooting.  If that was the e-ktetst* of- 8aw-  breaking back in 1914 and 1915,  -when times weremuch harder than  they are. now, why there should le  a demand for a game warden at  this time is not clear. If Jmembera  of the Rod and Gun Club know ol  cases illegal shooting the -local pro  vincial police can.do the investigat  ing and prosecuting just as  effectively as a high priced game  warden, and so far as I cati observe  Mr. McLaren is not being overworked in the discharge of- his  ordinary police duties.  Iff the club members or other are  aware of the game laws being  broken as sportsmen it is their  duty to impart tbe information to  the police. This should be one of  the obligations of Rod ��������� and Gun  Club membership. If those who  proclaim themselves the friends of  game law-enforcement do not care  to help with such good work,-what  hope is there for non-club members  and, likewise, for tlie- wanted game  warden? In the absence of close  co-operation between sportsmen-  and game warden the latter must  be a hopeless failure; with? such  -hearty co-opecation the provincial  police can do just as effective work,  and a game warden's salary of  probably b$100 a month saved  thereby.      -  Some two months ago we had  the annual gathering, of Creston  School district citizens���������of which  some Rod and Gun Club officials  were members���������protesting against  the expenditure of less than ' $200  to provide raises in., pay for school  teachers on the, sound principle  that these were.times for economy,  whilst today- we hear the cry for an  expenditure of not7 less than $1200  per annum for a game wardens pay.  Surely this community is not  more concerned over the 'preservation of buck deer and bears than it  ii over the giving of our young  people the best possible school;  instruction?

"As 'business slows down, com  modity oasts will* come down. The  tilings which .the .farmer, buys vvill  cost less, hence his net return vfor  low priced wheat in the things  whioh he uses, will be more.,  "Now then, from 1916 to 1920  the prices for Farm Prod licts were  higher, relatively, than the prices  of .commodities which the farmer  bought.     Four years.  "From 1920 to date, the prices of  farm products have been relatively  lower than the prices for things  which he buys. In .another year  or so the readjustment will be  complete.  '*The pendulum swings. Business moves in cycles^ The NEXT  cycle, which is sure, inevitable, involves a period of relatively high  prices for farm products and  relatively low prices for cointnodit'-  ies.  "The present trend of events indicates this just as clearly as the  noon-dajr-sun. Doesn't low priced  wheat, and too much of it, indicate  that farmers are g< ing broke?  Farmers who go broke leave the  farms. Less wheat planted means  eventually a Higher prioe, or more  properly speaking it means a price  for a bushel of wheat which will  buy a correspondingly fair and  equitable volume of things which  the farmer uses  *'The conclusion which we draw  from these premises is this:  Farmers wfio can weather four  years of relatively low prioea, and  who should have saved for the lean  years during the four years of high  prices, will find that the trend of  economic events is ultimately in  their favor. The readjustment is  n >w going on.  k'This is the time to BUY land,  not to sell it, for the weak are  forced to sell. Farmers who have  conserved their capital, who have  diversified their crops, who have  run their business as business men,  will make profits even during these  lean times. Better times for the  fanners are ahead."  According to this editor, we  have topnrohaseour "better times"  at n tremendous price. Farmers  have to "go broke" in order that  prices may increase to the point  where there is a living in agriculture.

"I don't see -what clothes have to do  with talking to me," she said half mischievously.  "Neither do I," he agreed. She had  stepped aside and his horse's head  was free. "I guess they haven't a  thing to do with it, but I haven't been  seeing things exactly straight lately.  I reckon I've been halt* locoed."  Touching his horse with the spurs,  he loped away to join Santry, who was  waiting for him on ahead.  CHAPTER XIX.  Baffied, But Still  Dangerous  When Trowbridge left Dorothy Purnell, promising to find his friend for  her sake, he had assumed a confidence  that he was far- from feeling. No  man knew the country thereabout any  better than he did, and he realized  that there was, at best, only a meager  chance of trailing the miscreant who  had succeeded in trapping his victim  .somewhere in the mountains. A  -weaker man would have paused in dismay at the hopelessness of the task  he had undertaken, hut Lem Trowbridge was neither weak nor capable  of feeling dismay, or of acknowledging  hopelessness. Time enough for all  that alter he should have failed. In  the meantime it was up to 'him to  rollow "Moran. He had learned from  Santry of the place where Wade was  stricken down, but how far from there,  or in what direction he had heen taken, was a matter of conjecture only,  and tlu- only way to learn was to trail  the party that had undoubtedly carried the helpless man away perhaps  to his death, but possibly, and more  probably, r.o  hold him captive.  r>r-sperate as he* knew Moran to be,  he did not believe* ihat the irnmediare  rourdi-r of (Sordon Wade was planned.

It may be  'taken in Bafeiy by the nurHing: mot-tar.  they found unmistakable traces of  half a dozen or more horses, besides  the footprints of Wade's mount, and  a brief examination was enough: to  show which way the party had gone.  Undoubtedly they had taken Wade  with them, so the pursuing party followed. ,  It was one thing to follow, however,  and another thing to overtake. Moran  was be.tter versed in the intricacies oi*  big cities than in those of the wilderness, but he was shrewd enough to  realize that Wade's friends wottfeg  start an instant search, as soon a^  they should miss the ranchman, and it  was no part, of his plans to be taken  by surprise.  Therefore, as soon as he had his  victim thrown into the prison*.from  which escape seemed impossible, Mcjr-  an selected a csmp site nearby, from  which he had a view of the surrounding country for miles around in every  direction, and scanning the horizon  carefully after bis vain attempt to intimidate Wade, he saw Trowbridge's  party approaching, While they were  still half a dozen miles away.  His first thought was to stay where  he was and give battle. In this he  would have a good chance of victory,  for, by opening -fire on Trowbridge and  his followers as they came up, he  could undoubtedly have picked off  three or four of them before they  reached him, and so secured odds in  his favor, if it should come to an immediate encounter.  Second thought, however, showed  him the folly of such a course. There  was too much remaining for him to  do, and the temporary advantage he  mighf"gain would not compensate him  for the havoc ft would make in his ultimate designs. He therefore, called  Goat Neale aside and said: "There's a  party of Wade's friends coming up  from the East, looking for him, and  I've got to lead them away. You stay  .here, but keep in hiding and .take care  that nobody learns where Wade is.  He'll live for a few days without grub  and I'll come back and tend*-to his case  after I've got this party going round  in circles.  "You stay, and the rest of us will  all ride off to the north, and they'll  think Ave have Wade with us, so  they'lL follow us, but we'll lose them  somewhere on the way.     Sabe?"  Neale demurred at first to the plan,  but consented willingly enough when  Moran promised him extra pay; so he  stayed, and we already know.the result.' Moran, however, followed out  his plans successfully enough, and before night he reached Crawling Water  in safety, while Trowbridge, getting  word through one of his scouts of  Wade's rescue, abandoned the pursuit.  He had been prepared to shoot Moran  down at sight, but he was ready  enough to leave that work to the man  who had a better claim to the privilege than he had.  Accordingly Moran had ridden into  town, exhausted.by the exertions of  his trip and had slept for twelve hours  before thinking of anything else.  When he learned on awakening of all  that had happened 'during his absence,  i he was furious with rage. Tug Bailey  | had heen arrested and was on his way  to Crawling Water ih custody. Senator Rexhill and Ilelen had taken an  Eastward-hound train without leaving  any word for him, and to crown it all,  he presently learned that Neale had  been, shot and Wade had been found,  and that the whole countryside was  ti flame with indignation.  It was characteristic of the mnn  that even in this emergency he had no  thought of following his cowardly accomplice in flight. It might be hopeless to stay and fight, hut he was a  fighting mnn, and he really exulted in  ihe thought of the inevitable struggle  thai was coming.  Silling alone in his office study ink*  the* situation, he felt the need-'of li-quor  even more strongly lhan usuhl, though  Wis- habit had grown on him of late,  Hnd :u<ordingly, he drank again and  again, increasing his rage thereby,.but  getting little help towards a solution  ol' his-  di ITI fill ih-s.

He got to his feet and rolled about  the room, like a boozy sailor, puffing  out volumes of smoke and muttering  beneath his-- breath. When he had  worked off some of his agitation, the  big fellow seated himself again, shrugged his massive shoulders, .and lapsed  into an. alcoholic reverie.

Tobacco's Effect Tested  Medical Men Find That Smoking Aids  Digestion  That smoking may be regarded as  an aid to digestion was indicated by  Dr. J. "W.

Dr. Crane  said that he had at one time advised  his students not to use tobacco, believing it weakened digestion, but  tests had shown that the saliva of a  smoker digested starch better than  that of a non-smoker, .~~ Starch is a  constituent of many foods.  From another point of 'view Sir  James Cantlie, the renowned British  medical authority, also regards tobacco as an aid to digestion.
