 ^^^i^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^liii  Z0iZ������Sim,  :zmz  rP?  Vol. XV.  CRESTON   B. CM FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 30, 1923  No. 43  New  Named Creston  ; The biggest day'a telegraph business between Oreston and Victoria  ���������was done on Friday last   when   it  became known   here   that   in   the  new redistribution legislation introduced in the   legislature   the   day  previous  serious consideration -was  being given   to   naming   the   new  Kootenay    constituency    Greston.  Premier Oliver and all the cabinet  ministers, Col. Xiister,   Hon. J. W.  Bowser and every private  member  that anyone   hereabouts   was   ac  tjuamted with   was   wired   to   re  questing their support to  have the  naine   Creston   made    permanent.  Almost 25 of the 46 members in the  house received suoh a telegram the  whole two dozen messages being de  livered  in the house at the same  time and making quite  a field day  for Creston amongst thfe legislators.  Since then wires and  letters have  been received   that   make   it   look  practically   certain   that the   new  riding will be called Creston.    The  debate on the  bill   is   now   under  -way and if no changes are made in  the new local riding Greston well be  the electoral headquarters  for  the  new constituency which  to  alt intents and purposes is the old Ymir  riding with only   Trail   town   left  out.    The   big.   day's   telegraphic  business was taken eare of by Creston board   of   trade   and   a   good  word is due   C.F.B.   agent   W. B.

The trustees had a meeting at -the  School with Principal Lallamond on  Monday afternoon at which it was decided to have a -Christmas tree and entertainment for the school scholars  some afternoon just before the Christmas holidays.  Hector Stewart entertained a party  of some 35 neighbors and young  friends at a birthday party at the  Stewart home on Friday night, and  proved a most efficient host. The  feature was dancing, with a few games  and songs, and a sumptuous lunch  about midnight.  Miss Eva Webster has kindly consented to cover the Alice Siding territory in connection with the tag day  for Japanese relief which the Women's  Institute is having, and will be calling  on everyone tomorrow. Alice Siding  is counted ou for tha usual generous  response it hits a habit of making'in  all good causes.  A few hundred dollars that has gone  from the Valley to the big Winnipeg  mail order house is due to return to  Oreston next month as Messrs. H. P.  Wood, Fred Ash and W. H. Hilton  were busy on Tuesday loading out a  car of apples for the T. Baton Company, Ltiniited. It was a car of assorted varieties, mostly W������gner, Delicious  and Borne Beautys. y  Creston Growers  Are Well Pleased  MSM-99 &8aim&  m~0m-am~m~,mma*-^-~  Jaek Smith was a visitor with  friends at Nelson the early part of the  week.

Dad Browell is very busy at present  with his wood sawing machine putting  up a winter's supply of fuel for many  of his neighbors.  Mrs. Guy Browell was a visitor with  friends in Nelson a few days last week.  R. Hurl, Charlie Burgess, Norman  Strong and A. Bond have all departed  for Arrow Creek, where they constitute the main force helping operate  the Bentley portable sawmill at that  point.  Canyon City Lumber Company,  Limited, took delivery of a 20-ton  tractor engine last week to Increase  the power plant at the portable mill at  the Helme ranch. Due to its excess,  ive weight the engine was run as fur  as the Brickson bridge, where it had  to be dismantled and trucked out to  the mill and re-assembled.  Canyon was disappointed on Saturday night in tha non-arrival of Rev.  Dr. Oalvert of Kaslo, who had been  advertised to give an illustrated lee  tuie in the schoolhouse that evening.  Due to illness in the family he was unable to come, but will   be along latet.

A fine literary and musical evening  is assured tonight at the schoolhouse  at 8 o'clock, when Mr. Norman Moors  of Cranbrook speaks on "Canadian  Citizenship," along with which will go  several musical numbers. The admis  sion Is silver collection, and the entire  proceeds go to ths ladles' community  club.  Farm and Home.  "'Make   the   apple*an   all-the-year-  rnund fruit and that.~will end all the  talk of the B.C. fruit; problem.    If we  would concentrate in* thoughtful businesslike way on making our apples a  commodity always. in demand, an all-  the-year-round   fruit* we should' find  we had not even   started   to   -fill   the  market for apples.     We  should   not  have even started to think we knew of  any marketing problems in  that ca5e;  we do not- appreciate.Jthe vast possibilities the  appSe   industry  offers.    - At  present we are just a bunch of amateurs in .the apple industry, amateurs  from start to finish; wc haven't really  Stat ted the   apple    industry   in   B.C.

Staples, manager of  the Creston sub-centre of the Associated Growers to the TParm.. and Home  man who dropped into his office at  Creston  recently.-: #':  Some indication of what Hoy Staples  ha&accomplisned for the Creston district and for the apple industry during  this critical season will be indicated in  this article.  "Evaporated apples will never get  us anywhere; they will.never net the  grower any thi ng worthwhile, as they  must be sold too cwe%. What we  have to do, in my opinion, is to forget  this cheap apple product, and forget  culls, and concentrate on the production of high-grade stuff���������the highest  grade fruit. "Why are not apples put  in cold storage a,nd rnade an all-the^  year-round product? -jit is done with  oranges and that is -just the reason  there is such a huge sate for oranges.  circumstances. We should be selling  apples the year around, to keep at the  height tf efficiency."  Creston had problems peculiar even,  ih this period of fruit selling problems  this year.    Staples   stepped   into   the  breach and attempted to solve them.  As local head of the Associated Growers he has handled the entire matter  for co operators in the Creston -district  ���������both the Creston Growers Limited,  the local organization, and the Associated Growers of B.C., with which the  local organization  is allied.     In that  dual capacity he is the selling head for  more locals than Vernon serves.    That  is, there are more locals to or at the  selling direction of Creston than there  are at Vernon.    The outside points for  which Creston is the selling centre, in  addition to the  Creston district itself,  include Nelson, Kaslo, Willow  Point,  Sunshine Bay, Harrup, Bus well, Crawford Bay, New Denver, Birch bank and  others.  . Two packing plants are operated in  the Creston local, at Creston and  Erickson. They are rented from the  Creston Fruit Growers' Union Ltd.,  and' the building at Creston is said to  be the best fruit warehouse in the  prbvince. They are rented until July  next, and were rented to enable the  tlie Associated Growers of B.C. movement to get started this year. This  season's returns promise to be good,  exceptionally good for the first year of  the new co-op movement. A local  pool is operated in addition to the  Associated 'Growers* pool.  Soldier Memorial  Debt is $185.00  The serious attention of all citizens is called to the statement  which follows, showing the fiancial  standing of-~Cre*8*fcon Valley's Sol-  diera' Memorial. It will be noted  that there is still a debt of $185 op  the monument, with st- possible $2-0  of unpaid guarantees to come in.  RECEIPTS  Subscribers... .. $1601.10  Proceeds  of tournament  per R.

Strawberry growers who shipped  through Creston received this season  $1.57 per crate net. The berries sold  for $2.13 per crate all round, crates  costing 35c and Creston's handling  charge 21c. Raspberries sold for $2.20  per crate and rasp growers received  $2,20 less 57c, 35c for crate and 22c for  handling.

The same principle governs  apple Bhipuments, except that in the  case of apples the brokerage is deduct  ed before the handling commission is  estimated. Peaches were not shipped  commercially. The crop was used locally. Creaton peaches compare with  Vernon peach.cn in yield and quality  both.

That house and garden.was planned
so often tliat at last I was almost convinced    of    its    reality.      Eventually
Murray began lo make sketches of it
that, would have amused an architect,
no  doubt, but   that gave  us ^immense
satisfaction.      His    ideal    was,    "Big
rooms, even if there aren't very many
of   them,   and   lots  of  light."       Mine,'
a home planned so skilfully   that my
work would take as little time as possible, and in which beauty and comfort
would  be   combined.       I   love   housekeeping,  but   I   pray   to   be   delivered
from the. house that demands all one's
energy.      I    have    sometimes    feared j
that under unfavorable    conditions    I j
might develop into    that    menace    to,
civilization, a model housekeeper.      I ���
ana rather inclined to be orderly and ���
-fitly,   and   to   want   everything   in   its j
place, but I check the tendency when-!
ever I can���I do not want a house that j
is not a home, where the children can-;

talors who prophesied the overturning
of the whole social system. Injustices and inequalities everyone could
see, but I thought Murray put it very
clearly when he said, "What w-e need,
Margaret-Anne, is to hold the balance
true between the individual and the
community. This cry of Xet the
Government do it/ will proflu.ee citizens with no backbone, if we are not
mighty careful." Anything that
would, lessen individual responsibility
und initiative he felt to be as great
a danger as the conditions that made
it possible for one man to amass
wealth and power at the expense of
those less fortunate.
All this was new to me,  for in the
manless   home of  my  girlhood  I had
never heard such    things    'discussed.
Naturally I found Murray's views very
interesting,   and   they-   showed   me   a
new side of him���one, I must admit,
that at first made me feel rather small
and ignorant!       I  said  something  of
the sort to him once and he laughed
rather apologetically' and said that he
too had a confession to make, that he
had been very- much surprised to find
me so good a housekeeper and so well
satisfied with my new life and all its
restrictions.       Those   ridiculous  men,
it seems-always .to surprise them that-
the'modern   woman   may   be   capable
and   independent  in   the   business   or
professional world and still as home-
loving  anjl  domestic,   when  her  time
comes ,as Solomon's model wife eArer
And of course we planned the children's future. One stormy night we
even got. so far as the right sort of
wife for Rupert, but the subject veer-
suddenly when I- said something
ut Nicolas being of the type that
marries young. There wasn't a man
on earth good enough for his daughter,
Murray, declared. Whereupon I
pointed out that there had beenu one
good enough for her mother.    '"'
"Oh, but you took a chance," said
Murray, with a rather sheepish grin,
���'and I am uot sure that I am."
If 1 know my daughter she will take
a  Hianco too.
Rupert, we though I, would probably
be a minister! He was always
preaching to Nicolas, and his interest
in theological matters was keen,
though his knowledge wa.s not always
to he borne with a serious face.
1 found Nicolas in tears one day because Puiperl had assured her that her
kitten would not. go to Heaven, his
Sunday School teacher had said so.
"An', he says, 'vvlfout are dogs,' an'
Kitty is so very afraid of dogs!" she
The children wore not quite five at
ihat lime, and I used sometimes to
wish ihat. Rupert's) memory wero not:
finite so retentive, for ho would pick
up phrnses ion deep for him and thou
worry Nicolas to tears over her mls-
dt-eds, lie wat-j always such a good

in iiii probability .somewhat lacking in

agreed with him, though for disciplinary purposes I never admitted it.
Nothing would please me more than to
have my daughter always with me until she goes to a home of her own,
but there is plenty of time to think
about that.; ,,^nd if Nicolas wants lb
make her own* wayvin the world it is
for her to decide.   - -j
-P~~ __. .*- /.
Early in the New Year Murray's
young brother Teddy came to Winnipeg. We had no room for him, but
of course he sepnt a great deal of his
spare time with us.
Teddy was a nice lad, but somewhat of a responsibility. . He had enlisted on his eighteenth birthday, but
was still ih England when the Armistice was signed, and now, at twenty*,
he was restless and unsettled. He
did not know what he wanted to do
nor what he wanted to be, except that
he did not want to go to college as his
father and mother wished. According to Mrs. Alywan's letters, she and
his father had. with difficulty kept him
from joining the Mounted Police, later
he had spoken of going to the Peace
River country; arid-again he had to be
persuaded to give up the idea of going
to South America as clerk to a mining
engineer whose acquaintance he had
made in England.
"I thought this time," Mrs. Alywin
wrote to Murray," that I had persuaded him to go back to the University,
for I could make it so plain to him
that without higher qualifications he
could never expect to hold any but a
subordinate position."
However, the thought of settling
down to several years of study was i
too much for Teddy, and soon afterwards he wrote to Murray to ask what
we thought of his coming to Winnipeg
for a change.
Murray threw the letter across the
table to me after he had read it.
"What do you think?" he asked. "It
might be just the thing for the kid to
come here and do for himself for a
while. Of course we would have to
keep an eye on him, but we could doj
that as well as Dad and Mother���maybe he'd take to it more kindly from
I had no objections to make.    Teddy
was only .fourteen when I had visited
at the  Alywin home,  the one  boy in
a houseful of girls, but we had become
very    good    friends���perhaps because
he admired Murray** so tremendously!
I thought it  would be rather nice to j
have    him    near    us.      After all, be-|
tween a  boy of fourteen and one of
twenty   -.here  is  no  very marked  difference,   and   I   was  perpared  to  like
Teddy as much as ever.      Then, too, I
felt that it would be a good thing for
them both  for  him to  be with  Murray.      I had always felt rather guilty
when I thought that on account of our
marriage Murray had been rather suddenly cut off from his family, though
I must say that none of the Alywins
ever gave me the least reason to think
that they blamed either of us.      Just
the same,  I  knew that if it had   not
been for me and the children Murray
would have   spent more than a week
with his father and mother on his way j
home.      And one of my pet plans was i
that all four of us should go East for
Christmas in 1920.
Perhaps it is because I have no family circle of rny own that I think it so
precious a possession, and that I was
so glad to think that Murray and his
only brother would be together once
Teddy came irfFebruary, got a position in one of the banks and a room
at the Y.M.C.A., and then proceeded
to "land" his more or loss unknown
He had grown at least a foot since
I had seen him in 1911, and was now
much taller than Murray���one of
those nice-looking long boys, with a
child's face on top of a man's body.
That he had been spoiled by his
adoring sisters one could see at a
glance, also that army life had unsettled him, but I always held that he
had no really alarming symptoms���
none more serious than his quite pardonable tendency to take people at
their own valuation. Murray, elder
brother fashion, was inclined to.be
impatient with him. "He has all
sorts of brains, but no sense," he
would say. "It Is no wonder Bad
couldn't, do anything with him, it is
discipline the cub needs, and I'll sen
that he gets it,"
I havo never discovered just what
Murray -menus by discipline, but: I do
know that Teddy never needed help

he could not pay back the money he
had borrowed from one of the other
boys to make the first payment on a

Murray, I understand, gave him a
cheque accompanied by a heart-to-

almost     painfully    good. He     was
"through with girls," and by I know

Murray half the money he had borrowed at the end of the month. -.
But miracles  do not happen  nowa-1
days, and soon Teddy was going to as ;
many dances as ever.      But I noticed t
that he  so far kept his resolution as
to divide his affections among half a
dozen girls instead of confining them
to  one.       So far as I know,  he kept
out of debt, though he w&s chronically,

NOV. 30  Provincial Party-  Successful Rally  The stock of the B.C Provincial  Party went up many points as a  result of the second rally within  the past six months which was held  in the Grand Theatre on Tuesday  night, with quite a large and very  representative turnout   of citizens.  The chair was occupied by Rev.  J. A. James who in his openrhf?  remarks pointed out that he was  present with a very open mind;  party lines are breaking, and from  now it would not be a case of the  4 iii" and "outs," but rather right  and wrong.  B. G. Stewart, who spoke here  also in May, opened proceedings  with a brief but comprehensive review of the aims and objects of the  new party, and also very ably dealt  with the more important planks in  the party platform, specially emphasizing their demand for a royal  commission to investigate the  Pacific Great Eastern, their liquor  control policy and the oldtime  patronage question.  He was particularly severe in his  condemnation of the Oliver administration for its shameful neglect of  the agriculture industry, for its  tremendous expenditure in excess  ofthe original estimates as to the  cost of the Sumas reclamation and  Southern Okanagan land projects,  and for putting a debt of $80,000,  000 on a province that in 1908 was  clear of debt.  Mr. Stewart, who has covered  practically the whole of the province in the past few months, was  of the opinion that Mr. Bowser  ���������was less a factor than in 1920. and  a > far as his following in the house  went ic possessed less ability than  in 1916, when it was swept out of  office.  Commander Lewis of Rock Creek  held the close attention of his hearers throughout, opening with a recital of his early observations of  political life in the province and  telling why be had cast in his lot  with the new party which he felt  sure would re-introduce honesty  and decency into our public life in  place of the present orgy of graft  and stealing.  He was quite frank into going  into the financial features of the  Provincial Party, stating that of  $30,000 received to date $20,000  had come   from    General   McRae,  whose all round fitness to .head a  government that would yet save  the day for British Columbia he  was fully convinced of, and who he  felt sure would be prevailed u pon  to assume the permanent party  leadership at the big Provincial j  convention in Vancouver early in j  December.

Creston Growers  Are Well Pleased  fContinued from Page 1  to Moose Jaw, 6e to Regina, 15c to  Shaunavon. Some of those pluces are  a long way from shipping points in  B.C. The freight to Oalgaiy is the  same from Cieston as from Okanagan  points. But keeping away from Calgary you see we have an advantage  owing to the difference in our favor of  freight rate to various other points.  And that is only the minor advantage,  real as it is. We ship apples from  Creston to Lethbridge for exaruyle in  SO hours. Figure out how that operates. .. Lethbridge wants apples, wants  them quickly. Lethbridge, gets them*  gets -^tftem ^q.uiekI-y^-froot Creston.  That is another reason why special  measures Were imperative for Creston  growers. Towns as fak away as indicated can get 500 boxes of apples laid  down from Creston as cheaply per box  as they could get by taking 700 boxes  from Vernon."  This year tbe output of apples from  the Creston organized growers will be  around 175 ears. Independent shippers  ore a factor in the marketing problem.  The apple production in the Creston  district, large as it is this year, did not  come up to lust year's heavy, almost  record crop here. New plantings will  uot become much of a factor in the  shipping output for some years yet������  and indications arc that when they  come in bearing the total output will  not exceed BOO cars under present condition. The average holding of orchard lands is around ten acres, The  bulk of Staples' sales of apples this  season have been made from Cresto n  ���������that is shipments have chiefly been  as the result of orders previously received. Those sales pay fche brokei--  age fee of $25 per car just the same,  under the strict interpretation of what  membership of the Associated Growers implies.  Favors Using ihe Trade  This brokerage and jobber matter  has many phases. Jobbers could hold  up for period which could do -.intold  harm to B.C. apples, Staples said this  season brokers and jobbers have helped  sales all along. "Either tipples must  be sold through recognized trade  channels���������brokers and jobbers���������or to  consumers direct. The ideal of selling  direct to consumers is not feasible.  The whole problem of B,0, fruit growers is how to dcII tlu'lv 'frillL Selling  as now through brokers and jobbers  the only charge which falls upon growers," Bald Staples, 'Ms the $25 brokerage per oar, speaking of apples. That  means 8 LiJc per box." It is", In his  opinion, questionable whether if the  AsBociated had ite own brokerage de-  phTtment 3t Tronic! not cost ad lentil  that much, probably more. "Brokers  have an established clientele, as have  jobbers. They are in business all the  year, not only during the apple selling  rush penson. Buyers buy on the advice off their brokers and jobbers,  Such sales agencies necessarily have  their own circle of buyer* who In  Miieniit-nd v-rw juroro a steady market. If  the Associated did iU* own brokerage  work it would need competent, experienced reputable brokers.   Those  mem  would be difficult to get, and would  only be employed, under existing conditions, for a few months each year."  Staples thinks that for that reason the  best men for such work could not be  got on those conditions,: and even if  they were they would deteriorate as  tbe result of the slack period between  each apple season.  Seventy per cent, of the total apples  sold through Creston are from the  immediate vicinity of Creston; the  balance comes from scattered points  all along the lake.  Discusses Culls  "Culls should-never come through  the growers' gate." he said. If we  have difficulty in marketing number  one apples what hope have we if we  take in culls? ^ At the beginning of'the  season, in the growing season, in fact,  I pointed this out to our growers and  we have had few cutis this year, practically none in tbe packing plants  here. When, for example, our growers started picking Wagners some  were small; tbey left them on the trees  and picked them later. They pruned  and thinned rigorously and we have  had no trouble with culls. Why  should we have? Culls are no source  of revenue, and that should settle the  matter."  Erickson is a big apple district in  the Creston areaT When De Hart of  Kelowna was in Creston selecting  apples for the Manchester exhibition.  Staples offered to show him "the best  Rome Beauties in the world." After  seeing them De Hart admitted he had  never seen better. Then he was  shown Erickson Delicious apples and  he admitted that ihey did merit the  description of the "best in the world'  Staples says the secret is the volcanic  ash soil of parts of the district, totalling roughly between 400 and 500  acres.  In the Creston plant now rented by  the organization there is frost proof  storage for 40 cars of apples. It is not  being utilized tbis season, as all the  apples, practically, have been sold.  The clean up of the building prepara  tory to nailing up the doors for the  winter was in progress when tbe Farm  and Home titan was in Creston on  November S. A few car loads of  apples are in storage as a medium of  testing later market values, but not  through necessity. '"  Creston area. Mcintosh Beds are  large. Jonathans ure very good indeed. Probably Wagners and Mcintosh Reds are the pick of the local  production; they, ar? certainly outstanding quality-apples.  Staples ditched the graders in the  two local packing plants this season;  says he can get better results without  graders. At the peak of the packing  season the payroll was $2200 fortnightly, and all the help is local, with no  Orientals in any capacity whatever  anywhere. As a matter of fact, the  workers are mostly apple growers"  sons and daughters. Growers themselves take a hand when finished picking on their own places.  As showing the sort of apples produced, Wagners were running from 80  to 98 and many were 72's; Delicious  ran often to 61's and big quantities  were offered guaranteed all 100's. A  box of apples weighs 50 pounds, so the  sixe of the apples can be gauged easily.  "Forget the culls and get after flrst  class high-grade   apples���������the   highest  grade apples," said Staples.  Wagners and Mcintosh are the pop-  Now is the  A.  Time to  FSx Up!

Canyon Oily Lumber  (lOfliPtlfljfy  Lllli  ular varieties, but Staples, says so far,  be has had no overproduction of any  variety of apples, and there has never  been such overproduction of any var  iety here. Perhaps they have enough  Wealthies, but Wealthies this year, as  a matter of fact, were on the short  side; and as many Wealthies were  planted as fillers, they will not become  too numerous in any event.  In the  peak   season the two   plants  turned out between 2000 and 2500 box  es of apples per day.    Crate shipmen ts  are perhaps 10 to 15 per cent, of the  total.  '���������There is nothing wrong with the  prairie, the only thing wrong is at this  end. And the thing that has to be  remedied at this end is to stop cutting  each other's throats in business.  Granted that there will always be  some independents, and that independents and co operators in apple grow  ers cannot get on well together; even  if the co-operator and the independent  ���������io not love each other, there is no need  for thetn to kill each other as growers." was the parting statement of Mr.  Staples.

They  ought to head the list of best sellers, she thinks.  "In  Britisii  Columbia  we  have one!  ���������whole progremme devoted to health reports and discussion on them.      Definite facts in regard to    local    schools  never fail to arouse interest," she^said.  Alberta she praised for its maternity  nurses, and Manitoba, she declared to  bje "strong on tonsils." Nova Scotia's  child welfare activities, its teaching on  the^ food vdlue of milk, and its work  in ths matter of school lunches were  all favorably reviewed. Ontario was  also commended for its child and  motherhood work, and Peel County  institutes in particular in regard to  health work.  Loyal French-Canadians  Exception    Is    Taken    to    Statements  Made That French-Canadians Are  Against Imperialism  A Canadian writing to the London  Observer, takes strong exception to  allegations made in recent articles in  the Observer by a special correspondent of that paper to the effect that  nearly all French-Canadians other  than British stock, are wedded to the  creed of the Nationalist Association,  as against Imperialism. The letter  recalls a prophecy that the last gun in  defence of the British Crown in Canada would*.be fired by a French-Canadian, and concludes with long ex  tracts from recent speeches made "by  Premier Mackenzie I������ing, explanatory  of "'Canada's attitude with regard to  the British  commonwealth.

A group of editors of prominent Swiss newspapers have toured the Dominion making a close study of conditions here with the object, of ascertaining whether the Dominion offers a suitable field  for Swiss immigrants.

In addition to  th'js boat three other American  schooners will operate' in the Arctic  Ocean, trading all the Avay from Her-  schel Island, at the mouth of the Mackenzie River, via" Banks Land and Victoria Land, to Coronation Gulf, in the  east.  To herald their advance the enterprising American trades send letters to the Eskimo, with picture postcards of their'ships and .an announcement that they Avill sell the latest in  trade goods at rates much below those  o������7 the Canadian traders, who must  come in by the overland route. These  letters and picture are sent direct- by  dog team across Alaska and the  ��������� Yukon.., ...- i-P";-  Th*^ Eskimo, Avho lives the life oi  a close community in his small villages, each of which is practically a  tribe in itself, trades,~as -he. lives,...on  the community plan. When the alluring pictures arriveSgt conference of  headmen is; held and the result usually is that the whole settlement waits  y*  for the American trader, ignoring all  offers from the Canadian trader, avIio  . has  meanwhile  reached   them   by  the  overland route. ���������-  Canada's last and best fur reserve  is. being depleted by American whalers, which every year take out raw  furs worth thousands of pounds free  of duty.  "The raw fur trade of the world centres in,;two or three places, and of  these the Canadian Arctic today heads  the li^t. - Furs Avorth many thousands  of pounds are trapped annually by the  Eskimos, red or white trapper of the  North West Territories, and eventually find their "way to the fashion* centres of the Avorld.  The annual value of all this trade  to Canada and the Empire in general  is greatly reduced as the result of  ���������American enterprise. It must be remembered that every, season shiploads  of) fine furs leave Canadian territory  for the United States, via Behring  Strait and the coast of Alaska, to San  Francisco, Seattle and other American  coast cities.  And not only is the American trader and trapper able to take Canadian  v ;      Change of Water  Change of Diet  Change of Climate  Cause DIARRHOEA  Mr. Fred Palmer, 217 Dalhousie St  Brantford, Ont., writes:���������"When I  first went out to the North-West the  water played ha?oc with my bowels,  and halng in a remote spot I could not  get anything to-give me relief lor any  length of time.  ���������I wrote and told my wife about the  time 1 was having and she sent me a  bottle of Dr. Fowler's Extract of Wild  Strawberry, and I cannot speak too  highly of it for Avhat it did for*me.

The hospitality of the Canadian  Government begins at Herschel Island, the Royal Canadian Mounted  Police post in the Arctic Ocean, and  the first port to call after the  American whalers pass through  Behring Strait en their trading trip.  Here tho kindly Government places  a police constable aboard each ship  to act as customs officer and to check  all sales made to the Eskimo.  The whole sfimmer the American  whale sails the Arctic, calling at the  various Eskimo settlements which are  then on the coast on the lookout for  the trading vessels. - White fox skins,  the ininted gold of Arctic trade, load  his vessel's holds to capacity. ��������� American-made goods adorn the igloo of the  Eskimo, obtained at prices which stag i  ger the imagination. |  As to trading prices, a Avhite fox j  fur is frequently demanded in return.,  for a plated safety razor or a tin  mouth organ worth half a croAvn. A  rifle Avorth about ������7 is handed ovei]  lo the Eskimo in return for white fox  or other skins worth ten times as  much.  Often an astute trader Avill set J  aside the forward end of his decks  to accommodate a whole village of  Eskimo families, whom he will keep  throughout the season long in the  unaccustomed luxury of plum and  apple jam, sAveet biscuits, and cheap  cigars, in return for all the furs  ���������which the village may trap, and for all  the seals "or polar bears -which they  may take. The trade, at the end of  the season, loads the Eskimo families  down with a lot of cheap rubbish and  e\rerybody is satisfied.  In a vain struggle to compete with  the Amei-ican trader, the Canadian  fur companies and trading houses  maintain expensive chain of posts  and traders throughout the Arctic.  To them must go the credit for developing the country, paying for its upkeep, for its policing,* and for their  endeavor to sell Canadian and British  goods to the Eskimo.  But * Avhen the Canadian Government places a stiff export duty on raw  furs to American, the Canadian trader  must fight an uphill battle against  odds.

Americans Buy Farms  Are  Value ef Cow Testing  Only  Western     Canada    Opportunities  Attracting  People From the  States  "Opportunities in Western Canada  are attracting many people from the  middle Avest, ootli farmers and in-vest-  ors in mineral, timber and other natural products of the country," remarked W. *R. Bennett, veteran representative of the Dominion immigration department at Omaha. Neb., who  arrived in Winnipeg with a number of  men from Nebraska.  "Four of these gentlemen have purchased large farm areas in the different prairie provinces," he continued.  "Not only will several of these in the  near future* buy farms in Saskatchewan and__Alberta, but-some are going  through to British Columbia, Avhere  they are interested in fruit, timber,  mineral and fisheries. I do not expect a  rush of American immigration from  my territory next spring, but I do expect a considerable movement. In  fact, many have visited Western Canada from Nebraska this summer to invest money, some to remove here with j  their families."  Aviation will soon bring about immense improvements in postal and  passenger transportation, and Avill ultimately have revolutionary effects on  social life generaly, according to four  of the world's leaders in the field of  communications. These men���������Sir  Samuel Hoare, British Minister of  Aviation; Postmaster-General Harry S.  NeAV, of the United States; Director-  General Ronge, of the German Post  Office; and Dan Bostrom, ex-Cabinet  Minister and one of Sweden's greatest shipping men���������gave their views to  a leading Swedish journal, in reply to  a questionnaire.  Sir Samuel Hoare, in his reply,  emphasized the need of international  co-operation. He favors ofiicial encouragement and support for priA-ate  initiative for the establishment of  air lines. Aviation, however, is still  young, Sir Samuel believes, and only  a great expenditure of thought, energy and^capital Avill bring it to its !  due place in world development.  Perfection of night flying, according to Postmaster NeAV, is one, of the  primary requisites to aerial progress.  This is. a fundamental to develop-  riient of the postal aviation service,  he said. . Mr. New declared he saw-  unlimited possibilities for airplanes  in postal communications.  A similar message came from Director Ronge, of Berlin, who said the  air might noAV be regarded as the  most important road for progress in  mail transportation.  Mr. Bostrom, of Gothenburg, said  that it is only a question of a short  time uutil aerial traffic across the  continents and the oceans Avill pffer  tlre same commercial possibilities as  the railroads and the shipping lines ot  today, and that aerial vehicles will  then   have   at   least   as   reArolutionlng  an effeel in remodelling social life in  general as the locomotives and steamships during the past fifty years.
