By Staples as general-  manager.  In 1924 there was a split, and Greston  Co-Operative Fruit Exchange, which Was  earlier in the yeir taken over by Scott  Fruit Company, came into existahce,  and for a couple of years the two I now  defunct companies had the field to  themselves, the Exchange in 1926 moving into the big hew warehouse erected  b;*. the Union at Creston in 1922, and  the Growers' taking x>n the old Union  warehouse erected about 20 years ago,  and whieh bss now been sold to Long  Allan & Long.    .Y  The warehouse Yiust acquired is on  C.P.R trackeige iflhiost opposite the  depot, and is l^Sxj-15 feet in  sise, with  ___.-_ _ ___-._____-_. ___... _��������� __* ___^ __________ J-jg^.,p-���������  the past couple of ysac_s it hajrJjeen  mositly far an ^,^^m__lh_g^:-Ware'--ouse; to  accomodate : o^__ar^EP^iili^rigSc3ose to-  the village, with the friit brueked ;to  Erickson for packing: hrthe big warehouse the Growers have at that point,  and whic^i they are still retaining.

With the excessive heat of July  aggravated by- an unusually steady  supply of quite high wind, the remark  that "the climate is changing," has been  much In evidence the past few week?,  insofar as the wind is concerned the  observation seems to be quite- correct,  but the claim vrill not hold good as  regards temperatures.  A look : over the official weather  records very carefully feept by Dr.  Henderson would indicate that the  years of heat appear to come in cycles of  five year periods or, at least, that has  been the case the past ten years.  Commencing with 192__. - the records  show Jtfly of that year to have had an  average temperature for the month c*  .SO. In 1923 it was .81. In 1924, .83.  1925, .87, and 1926 it was .89^.  In* 1927 a fresh start was made back  at .80. It was .81 in 1928. . .84 in 1929,  and .83 in 1930, while July of this year  has an average temperature of. .85.

At a recent test on. the  railroad between Hamburg and Berlin  a propeller-driven coach made a trip  over a 161-mile course in 1 hour 38  minutes exactly,  according   to   schedule.    Its    average    speed    was    105  miles an hour    and    it    attained    at  times  a rate of 143 miles an hour,  outdistancing the airplanes which accompanied it on its run. It is not because the rall-zeppelln proved  to be  so fast that this experiment is of significance, but because of the evidence  It afforded of  the  interest  which  is  being taken in this new means of locomotion by   the    German   raijways.  The test was made on the main line  between Berlin and Hamburg and all  other traffic was temporarily diverted  to thc sidings in order to give thc propeller ooach a clear field. If the railroads can be convinced of the safety  and  economy of the rail-zeppelin  as  they have been convinced of,its speed  there may be developed a new rival  to the airplane and tlie motor bus for  fast transportation..

Explanations and Comments  The Persecutor's Zeal Acts 9.1, 2.���������  While Philip and the others "scattered abroad" were busy extending and  building ufc> the Church, Paul was  busily persecuting the disciples in  Jerusalem. Breathing out threatening-  and slaughter, he lived, as it were, in  an atmosphere of hot hatred, fury  and destruction. "The words 'breathing out* are expressive often of a  deep, agitating emotion, as we then  breathe" more rapidly and even violently In order to suipply the oxygen  needed to supply the exhausted vitality consumed by the emotion. It is  thus expressive of violent anger." ���������  Albert Barnes.  Paul never forgot what he had done  at Jerusalem. We have a record of  no fewer than seven times when by  tongue and pen he recalled his con-  dust as a nersecutor: Acts 22.4, 5;  22.19; 26.9-11; 1 Corinthians 15.9;  Galatlans 1.13;  Phil. 3.6;  1  Timothy  mm***.  Paul asked the high priest for letters enlisting the aid of leaders of  synagogues at Damascus in seizing  men and women of the "Way" to  bring them bound to Jerusalem, for  the Sanhedrln. in Jerusalem had no  authority In Damascus. The use of  the plural here indicates that there  was ~& large Jewish population in  Damascus,    a    fact    borne    out   by  V  ��������� .      -���������.*- _.   *^-^_o_r_-������������    Al-.^*.    ..X^^.    *._i^...  uvse^iuua,   w<UU ouiiiuq   t___.cn.      nu   ___v>u-  sand Jews were slaughtered in a massacre in Damascus in Nero's time,  and that tho wives of the Damascenes  were, most all of them addicted to  Jewish religion." The city may have  been chosen by Paul for this special  visit because of disturbing rumors  concerning the increase in number of  those who followed the "Way." "With  the ambition which knows no rest,  and in the pride of his Pharisaic  heart, Paul strikes but with the idea  to reverse the maxim of the "Crucified  Leader" of the hated sect, and go  into all the world and suppress the  gospel in every creature.7'���������Henry  Drummond.  His Vision, Acts 9.3-9.���������As Paul  neared Damascus, suddenly there  shone round about him a light from  heaven. It was about midday, and  the light was "above the brightness  of the sun."

Someone on hoard would see it,  and a sight so unaccustomed would  bring'  help.  The brush pile was aow higher  ffinri ills head hut he worked f rsnzied-  ly, bringing anything he could lay  hands on and piling it nearby, ready  to throw onto the; blaze. He longed  for assistance, but could not makeup  his mind to go for help. Time was too  precious, for when night fell he could  no longer gather fuel. Ke stopped  only long enough to snatch glances at  the distant smoke, and knew for a  cexxainxy that ;tiie ��������� boat -was: headed  north. The knowledge maddened him;  taut darkness would come scion, and  surely no ship would pass that signal  Of distress. When at last, knowing  thnt night was pot far off, he stooped  to start the blaze, his hands were  shaking.  Back at the camp Nick's companions began to look anxiously for his  return. Early suppers were a necessity  since they must be over before dark;  but the meal passed and he did not  come. *  'T>oeaAanyohe know what direction  he. too)k'?**|i$Bked"  ''He'w������;^ of his  brush piles out on that point to the  south," said Angela.

It's a good distance off,  that point of land."  "But I can't stay alone with Marjorie," she answered, though he had  already turned away and was striding along beside the captain. Y  A sense of agitation grew upon  them as they hurried ������u.  "Either he's hurt," said the captain, "or he's seen a ship. It's possible, you know, that someone's looking  for us. . We talked with Key West  only twenty-four hours before the  storm, and these islands would be our  only refuge. That's been my reason  for delaying the start in the small  boat. I wanted to give your friends  a chance to find us. It will be a wonderful escape if we're picked up as  soon as this. I've been, worrying about  water���������spent- all, this afternoon trying to locate the best place to dig."  Myer did riot speak. Owing to the  reduced rations of camp life he had  lost some of his flesh, but was still  too heavy to walk rapidly with any  comfort. Their way led through .a  grove of palms that hid the sea, and  he was possessed of an overwhelming  desire to see the water. When they at  last reached a clearing, they stood  spellbound.

The captain's lips moved silently.  Myer was breathing hard.. Then pandemonium broke loose. The rest. of  the party was upon them, cheering,  gesticulating, chattering; answering  Hick's -wave of triurap-i with joyous  shouts before, of one accord, they  started in the direction of "the lire.

Nobody spoke; but Angela, moving  nearer, slipped her hand ,in his. Nick  gripped It hard. He did not even know  Whoe hand it was. In the tension of  that last hour he had forgotten everything, save that he must send out that  signal across the miles.  Had Angela not spoken he might  have clasped her hand indefinitely.  Her words, chosen with discriminating  care; came to him harshly; a/blow  that brought back the memory of  what he had learned that afternoon.  She said, and because of the crackling flre no one heard save Nick:   ;.  "Nick���������dear friend���������are you glad  that our exile is over?

The fingers  that clasped her hand relaxed. She  was conscious of a stiffening on his  part, and wondered, in a sort of panic,  if after all her experience with men,  she had used the wrong tactics now.  Nick had arisen without answering,  and Angela arose, too. She would  have stood beside him. had he not  crossed to the other Bide* of the flro  and joined the captain. The ship was  very near, and Myer turned to throw  more faggots to the blaze.  "They won't come In much closer,"  said the captain quietly, "They'll lower a boat.

Now, because she- met Benny at the  door, he did not ring the bell; and  Uncle Sim, who was in the garden  ���������for his morning- stnoil, had not seen  the boy arrive.

Test Of TKe Truly Great  A remarlc recently made by a very famous Canadian deserves to . bo  recorded, repeated and memorized. It deserves front page space in every  newspaper. It might well find a place in our school text books. It is a  worthy subject not merely for this editorial, but for many such, articles.  Colonel W. A. Bishop, V.C, EKS.O., Canada's great ace and the Empire's  most distinguished and greatest fighting airman in the Great War, a man  who, because St was necessary to do, took more and greater risks sn the  discharge of his duties than probably any other living man, when about to  make ������ Sight ihe other day, was aeea carefully examining every pari of tho  machine in -which he was about to embark. He thoroughly inspected and  tested tt_& wires, rigging-, wings and tail parts of his machine and listened  attentively to the hum of his sector.  Somebody standing by twitted this world renowned airman on hia  excessive caution in inspection. It is his reply that deserves to be inscribed  everywhere.    He said:  "I'm not fussy about being- the world's smartest pilot���������I just want to be  tho oldest one."  Unfortunately, many people harbor the delusion that to be careful,  to refuse to take unnecessary risks, to insist that everything has been dona  that can and should be done to eliminate or reduce danger, is to display a  sort of cowardice; that, in fact, there is something fine and brave in showing  a disregard of all caution.    Rather, they are fools.  No person will ever accuse Colonel Bishop of cowardice, of a lack of  bravery, or of an unwillingness to take risks when risks are necessary and  Inseoarable from the doing of one's work. In the answer he made, quoted  above, ho revealed, not a small, timid soul, but a truly great man.  How much less sorrow and tragedy there would be in this world if only  everybody would emulate Canada's great air pilot _  It, _5or example, motorists who throng the highways by the million were  actuated by Colonel Bishop's ambition, not to he the fastest driver in the  world, but the oldest one; if the canoeist, and the yachtsman, and the motor-  boat owner were not so anxious to he known as the most spectacular water  men, but as the oldest in the game; if swimmers were not quite so keen to  establish new high records for distance from shore, but rather to establish  reputations as being the oldest known swimmers.  The slogan "Safety First" which we heard so frequently a few years  ago. and, unfortunately, less frequently today, is a good slogan. It is short,  pointed, and unquestionably wise. But, alas, too many people in a spirit of  wild adventure, bravado, in, a desire to he, as they think, smart, and show  oS, place everything else first and act as if their life motto was "Safety  -Last." Again, we say. they are not smart, they are not brave, they assuredly cannot be classified as great.    They are merely fools.  All over the country now at level highway crossLags of'railways there  have been erected signs bearing- the single word "Stop." The law says that  such signs mean exactly what they say,���������that upon reaching that point all  traffic shall stop. Then, if all is clear and safe, go ahead. "Stop" signs are  nothing but silent policemen, but the law says their order must be obeyed  Just as If a living police officer-stood there and raised his hand. Of course.  police officers oould be stationed at all such points to enforce the law, but  the expense, which "the taxpayers would have to pay, would be enormous.  Yet, because Governments and railways seek to save the taxpayers money  and erect inexpensive signs, the average man, and womaa, ignores and defies  the law enacted in their own interests, and speeds right-on, all too frequently to their death or serious injury. Unlike Colonel Bishop, they do not desire  old age, or at least are not big enough, great enough, brave enough, yes,  loyal enough to the laws of their ocuntry, to exercise caution.  Such people are fussy to be known as "smart." That is all. They  flatter themselves they are adults, grown-ups, but they are woefully  mistaken for they are still but children in the kindergarten of life. It is  possible, even probable, they will never grow up, but through their fool-  hardiness and imbecility end their careers before life is really begun.  Certainly they will never be great.  New  Flying Boat  Carries  Forty  People  Biggest, Commercial Craft To Be  Tested On Ocean Bain .  A new 40-passeng-er flying boat, the  largest commercial 'plane ever built,  will take the air in Connecticut and so  another great stride will be taken  toward the nearing day of regular  trans-Atlantic air travel.  The 'plane is to go Into the Caribbean service of the Pan-American  airways, which 9s the' testing ground  for commercial trans-Atlantic flights.  It will fly between Miami and Baran-  qullla, Colombia, a distance of 1,350  miles, only 50 of which Is over land.  Almost all the way the pilot is out  of sight of land.  The new *"ianfc i!ijiR0' boat and a  sister ship already begun, are constructed with an eye directly on Atlantic flying. They are built with a  range of 1,000 miles, which easily con  be extended by sacrificing a small  portion of the passenger space. And  they are equipped as luxuriously as  any ocean liner with a view to the  comfort of passengers. Not only are  the cabins constructed to withstand  the. buffeting of high seas in case of  forced landings in the ocean, but ar  McBEAN BROTHERS  Established 1882  Winnipeg, man.  ju-cemsea a. asonoea  This is ih& year to-Bhfp'your own, grain to a reliable Commission firm'  who will handle it to '.the;-I>ei_ivv6"a-Hble,'iadv^t&#e;'v>'_3y'. shipping over l!.,  platform you save handling charKes'of $17.50 oh a.thousand bushel car and on  larger card proportionately.   -If necessary* to. put through an elevator send i>s  J'our tickets and we can, handle your grain.

Bennett,  Prisae Minister, who sieved the _cs6-  Sutich, dealt with this charge before  St was made.

The claim would be advanced that  tho total amount should be apportioned on a basis of population, whereas  the ; government wished qf necessity  to dictate where the money would  go. Also the provision of a stipulated  amount would develop the idea in the  minds of the shiftless that a fund  had been established upon which tbey  might  draw  without work.  The other side of the argument was  presented by Rt. Hon.  King, opposition leader.  was the board of directors sent by  tho people to administer their business. It was the duty of the government'to determine what sums it  required for unemployment relief, in  the first instance;Yaisd for farm relief  to the second, and submit them to parliament, said Mr. King.  What the -government said was  necessary it wouid get. But, declared  Mr. King, a limit, should be set. And,  he reminded Mr. Bi^ynett, the government could always? summon parliament if it found that more money  was required.  of    a    crop  failure.  *M  ���������_rw *.
