The  moat important announcement of the  week is tbat on August 12th, an expert  from the Tree Fruit Board staff along  with Mr. Britton of the experimental  farm at Summerland are to be here for a  meeting in tbe United Church basement  with selling agency managers and warehouse forem _-n who will give a talk on  packing and handling the differene varieties of tree fruits.

Wynndel had a total carload shipment this  year of 31 cars". 26 of these were strawberries, one raspberry, two mixed of  raspberries and cherries, and two ptraight  cars of cherries in the makeup of which  Long, Allan & Long and the Exchange at  Creston were ass* eistaSvi.  Long, Allan & Long, Limited, have a  few cucumbers on the move and a small  - ^supply of . seedling plums, along with  some ? raspberries.

At the Exchange cherries are still  coming in from* Boswell - but this' will  cease at the end of the week. Tne cherry  crop there does not seem to have suffered  as heavily by rain and a crop 75 per  cent, of 1934 is looked for. Some cab  bage is available but is in poor demand  due the prairie product now being offered  at Alberta centres. Strawberry growers  who shipped through the Exchange will  be receiving their cheques this week and  returns will be better than for the 1934  crop Report has it that the aveaage for  the season will be close to $1.90 per  crate.  *-8 St  m.Ovic ������  Drowning Claims  Mildred Kilgren  Slips While Crossing Log Oyer  Goat River?��������� Body Never  Came to the Surface���������Family  Recently from Regina, Sask.  sawmiii ac orawiot-o  Bay is turning out a lot of lumber Ollie  Christie has made several trips with the  truck the past week.

It has been one  of the biggest ever taken off at Alice  Siding.  with the vaiiey cherry crop cleaned up  and the raspberry season all but over,  fruit shipments from points in this* district are quite light. The cherry packing  crew at the Exchange completed the* season's labors on Monday, and what cherry  business there is doing is confined to receipts from Boswell which are being  handled at the Exchange pre cooler.  Four straight cars, heavy to Lamberts,  were shipped this year, two of which  went to Montreal.

Eastern   orchards   have  now recovered  considerably from the very cold winter  of 1934 and the crop will "show a healthy;  increase over last year, although there is  sure to be a considerable demand, as in  other years, for Mcintosh, Delicious and  Jonathan.  I The bright spot in the apple deal, however, is the better-than-1934 demand for  BiC. apples in the overseas market.

Seldom, does he miss a day at his  office, and never the day but his  direction of his newspapers is quite  apparent.  Of his eighty-seven years some  sixty-six have been given to the  Montreal Star, and that is a record  Which has never yet been attained  by any other editor or publisher in  Canada���������sixty-six years of continuous service and of rulership of the  leading and most influential paper in  Quebec, possibly in all Canada, for  the Weekly Star is a wonder in its  Way, going each week to a quarter  million subscribers.  Lord Atholstan was born as Hugh  Graham, in the little village of Atholstan, Huntingdon County, on July 5,  1848, but journeyed to Montreal, as  did many other ambitious lads from  the peninsula of Quebec Province.  He started the Star whilst the other  papers in the metropolis were in  either a somnolent or a poor stage.���������  Sherbrooke Record.

"This trip has been a good rest  for me," she said, after she finished  telling of the rigors of the voyage.  Storms and rapids beset the route���������  via Lake Champlain���������which was that  taken by the pioneers of 200 years  ago.  She is the first person to make the  trip single-handed, said Capt. Bill  Byrne, president of the George  Washington Boating Association,  New York, at whose float she tied  up.  Miss Lyman, a native of Denmark  and a naturalized Canadian, said the  first leg of the trip was the hardest.  "There's a lot of white water in the  Richeliu River between Montreal and  Lake Champlain, and several days I  had to buck storms," she said. Her  cockleshell craft she built herself two  years ago.

"DRIED APRICOT AND PINE-*  AypT ,-���������****��������� JAM  Knew Famous Nurse  Explanations And Comments  King Nebuchadnezzar's Plan  Daniel and Three Companions, Daniel  1. It was in the third year of Je-  hoiakim's reign (606 B.C.) that Nebuchadnezzar, King of Babylon, first  besieged Jerusalem and carried back  to Babylon Jewish captives, together  with some of the treasures of the  temple. Among the captives were  Daniel and the other youths of our  lesson. The king had directed one of  his officers to take Jewish youths of  noble families who were especially  fair and bright, and have them enter what has been called "The Princes' College of Babylon." For three  years they were to receive education  for the civil service. They were to  be taught the language and learning of the Chaldeans. They were to  be nourished with a portion of the  food and wine served to the king  himself.  A Wise Experiment, Daniel 1:8-13.  Daniel firmly resolved that he would  not live upon the king's dainties and  wine, for he knew they were not good  for him. Moreover, he thought of  them as defiling, for the "dainties"  might have been offered in sacrifice to idols, or might not have been  prepared according to Jewish laws,  or might be the flesh of animals held  to be unclean by the Jews. See the  law in Dt. 12: 23, 24'; Lev. 11:4-20.  Daniel requested Ashpenaz, the  officer tn -whose charge he was, to  permit him and his three companions  to refuse the food given. Though  kindly disposed toward Daniel, the  officer hesitated to grant his request,  "Why, should the king compare your  face with those, of the other youths  and notice that you are in poorer  condition than they?" he questioned.  "The king might think that I had  enriched myself with what had been  provided for you, and my life would  be forfeited," he added.  Daniel had a. plan which he knew  would not get the officer into trouble  and he proposed it.^ "Test us," he  said, "let us eat pulse [herbs, Revised Version; vegetables, Moffatt's]  and drink water for ten days, and  then compare our faces with those  of the youths who   eat   the   king's  4 cups (2 lbs.) prepared fruit  7 cups (3 lbs.) sugar  1 bottle fruit pectin  To prepare fruit, add 2 cups water  to % pound apricots.

Ashpenaz yielded to  Daniel's request, doubtless with many  misgivings. At the end of the time  suggested by Daniel the experiment  had succeeded���������the four youths were  found heavier and fairer than those  who ate the king's food, and they  were put permanently on their simple diet.  Plain Living and High Thinking,  Daniel 1:17-20. God gave the four  youths, Daniel, Hananiah, Mishael,  and Azariah, knowledge and skill in  all learning and wisdom. They were  industrious students, but the gift  came hone the less from God, as do  all good things. And Daniel had understanding in all visions and  dreams: see Chapter 2. When all  the youths were summoned to his  presence, the king found these four  Hebrews the best of them all, better than all the magicians and enchanters in his realm, and they were  given positions which involved personal attendance upon him.  Need Lots Of Sympathy  "Editors Of Newspapers Do Not Havo  Easy Job  Governor Eugene Talmadge, himself an editor in Atlanta, Georgia,  ohed a tear for newspaper workers.

Guest, M.A.)  The term alkali is of Arabic:  origin, and is used to designate certain substances like lye, washing  soda, and ammonia solution which.  are capable of neutralizing acids..  Alkaline substances possess properties in many ways just the opposite  of those of acids. A carefully balanced mixture of an alkali with an.  acid is generally neutral, being  neither acid nor alkaline. A person  who has swallowed an acid poison  Is given a dose of an alkaline substance such- as washing soda, which.,  in known in science as sodium carbonate, or even plaster scraped from.  a wall.  Alkalis when dissolved in water  have the property of turning red  litmus, a dye extracted from certain  lichens, blue. A substance which  changes its color upon the addition  of an acid or alkali, is known by-  scientists as an indicator.  The most common alkalis are  sodium hydroxide or caustic soda,  potassium hydroxide of caustic  potash, calcium hydroxide or slaked  lime, and ammonium hydroxide or  ammonia water. In science the  tern base is also used to designate  an alkali.  Sodium hydroxide is a white solid  con-pound, which may be prepared in  tne form of long sticks. It is very  soluble in water and the solution'is  u&ually called lye. This solution has.  a caustic taste and a slippery feeling. Sodium hydroxide is used on a  large scale in the manufacture of  hard soap. This is done by heating  certain fats or oils, such as palm-oil  | and cocoanut-oil, with the alkali. A  solution of this base is also used to  remove skins from fruits, such as  the peach, which is done by dipping  the fruit into a boiling solution for  a short time. When a piece of pure  woolen cloth is boiled in a 10 per  cent, solution of lye, the material  dissolves completely. Cotton, however, is insoluble and. hence sodium  hydroxide is used in testing goods-  *for cotton or other vegetable fibres..  Potassium hydroxide, known com-  mercially as caustic potash, is very  similar to sodium hydroxide, but is  more expensive.  Calcium hydroxide or slaked lime  is used on a large scale in mortar.  It is also used for whitewash and in  preparing lime-water. In the laboratory lime-water is used to test for  carbon dioxide gas. When carbon,  dioxide comes in contact   with   cal-  --��������� 1 3 ��������� JJ- _        ���������T.���������__S^������.1        mm~^~ + ;^mm  ClUUX   ' IxyKLM-VAJAyZTSf      Cfc     8;HCa8JIV88.     ICCUMVi*  takes place producing a white insoluble substance known as calcium  carbonate, which changes the clear  lime-water solution to a milky color.  The breath contains carbon dioxide  and hence if a person blows through,  a straw into a solution of lime-water,  the lime-water turns milky. This is  a simple experiment to show the  presence of carbon dioxide in the  breath. A lime-sulphur orchard  spray is prepared by adding sulphur  to calcium hydroxide. -?.  Magnesium hydroxide is similar to  calcium hydroxide, but is less soluble  in water. Milk of magnesia is a  very weak solution of magnesium  hydroxide in which, magnesia, or  magnesium oxide, is suspended acids.  Ammonium hydroxide is formed by  dissolving ammonia gas in water. A  solution of this base is used on a  large scale as a cleansing agent and  for neutralizing acids.  Town Crier Not Needed  Blind Are Good Swimmers  rf������(ec>  C&VWKA  ���������CkuQuiil  ti an.

"You can sit down and let me look  at you," responded the old lady. "I've  got the upper hand of this cold already, and am staying here only because I believe in 'safety first.'  Every hour wasted by sickness  makes me impatient. There's so much  to do in this wonderful old world;  and when you're over seventy there's  such a little time to do it in. Aurora  tells me Jack's getting on all right���������  not that I expected anything else.  He's got the Nelson grit, and there's  no chance that he'll be imposed on  at the Adam ranch.

I love Pine  Ridge even in a blizzard; but I can  see how it looks like the end of nowhere to a girl brought up as you've  been. I was glad Mark Adam happened in at dinner time to keep ybu  company. Has Aurora Tubbs been  talking you to death?"  Nancy laughed.  "Not quite. I let her rattle on and  killed time listening."  "Killed time!" echoed Cousin Columbine. "Don't ever use that phrase  again, child. Life's too short at the  best, and even a day like this there  are things to do. Everything's made  too easy for people now-a-days. That's  half the trouble with 'em. I was  younger than you, my dear, when  Father took me to Leadville. More  than fifty years ago, yet I can shut  my eyes and it seems like yesterday."  "Was it much of a place at that  time?" questioned Nancy as Cousin  Columbine sipped her milk.  "Much of a place! I wish X could  make you see it.

Nance laughed as she hitched her  chair nearer to the stove, and questioned: "Were there any shops, or  did you get provisions from a distance?"  "There were stores of a sort, even  at that time.

Gambling nouses were open all  night, and so were theatres."  "Theatres!" gasped Nancy. "In a  place like that?"  Cousin Columbine nodded.  "Not at the very first, of course;  but less than a year after tbe boom  started, saw,mills got to work*, and  dwelling places grew more comfortable. Banks, and business blocks,  and dance nails sprang up almost  over night; other places, too, which  the town would have been happier  without: saloons and gambling  houses where ^caany -a hard-won fortune was throwa away."  "It doesn't sound like a very restful spot!" smarted Nancy.  Columbine kelson laid down her  empty glass and pulled tne blankets  a bit higher.  "A mining town in boom time,"  she asserted, "is about as restful as a  hornets' nest that has been disturbed.  Along in the early nineties when  there was a stampede to San Juan  county and the town of Creede was  founded, I saw two lines in a newspaper that I never forgot:  Tt was day all day in the daytime,  And   there   was   no   night in  Creede.*  "And it was the same   at   Leadville.    Bedlam broke loose after -the  men stopped work, and it was almost  impossible to sleep till daylight."  "Was that the last of the gold and  silver rushes, Cousin Columbine?"  "Creede came later than Leadville,  as I said; then Cripple Creek;.not to  mention the Pemperton hoax, my  dear. Some day I'll tell you about  that, but I mustn't bore you with too  many tales at once. We grow garrulous as we grow old, I fear; and  it's years since I've talked over those  times with any one."  "But I'm not bored," Nancy assured her. "** "You'll have to tell this  all over again when Jack io here. I  wouldn't have him miss It for the  world. Do you suppose we could see  one of those mining towns some  day?"  "No reason in the world why you  can't. Come spring we'll make an  excursion to Cripple Creek. Even  now it wiU give you an idea of how  a mining town is built; and no  doubt Mark Adam would jump at  the chance to drive us over. Did he  say how Luke Was getting- on?"  "He'll be home soon on crutches.  Does Luke look like his brothers,  Cousin Columbine?"  "Not ln tho least. He's the odd  member of tho family and resembles  no one. Luke was a timid little boy  and not quite so husky aa the others.  He's taking a year off before entering college."  "Aurora says he's hia mother's  favorite."  "Stuff and nonsense! If sho felt  any favoritism Eve Adam has too  much sons������ to show it; but Luko's  affectionate, and not ashamed to let  folks find it out. I've thought at  times that Eva had a leaning to  ward Matthew; but if that's truo it's  only because he's so shy she wants  to protect him."  "How old is John?"  "Sixteen.

This: rehednded her of Pine  Ridge's lack of reading matter, and  she asked: '"How does It happen that  there's no library here, Cousin Columbine? It's a pretty small place,  but doesn't anybody like to read?"  It was moment before the old lady  responded; then she said: "I suppose  most of the folks 'round here are-  well, they haven't a great deal of  education, and no "background whatever. The Adams,' and Theodore  Taylor, our postmaster, are the exceptions. The truth is, Nancy, any  youngsters with ambition usually  leave town, which Is not to the advantage of Pine Ridge as a community. Then too, every one has  work to do, and. reading's regarded  aa a. luxury. *"rhg,t"g wrong's of  course; but being a pioneer I can understand it."  "But they have time to loaf  around the store" observed Nance  shrewdly. "And if they could get  good books just by going to a library, perhaps tbey*d atop buying  those awful magazines Juanita feeds  on."  "Maybe they would," admitted  Cousin Columbine, "but public libraries don't grow on bushes; and in  a place like this there's no Aladdin  to rub his wonderful lamp and wish  for one!"  Nancy laughed ss she went out,  leaving Cousin Columbine to her  nap. Aladdin! What would she do  to Pine Ridge if she possessed This  lamp? This idea, and the inspiration which, was born of it an hour  later, so absorbed the girl that any  necessity for "killing-; time" was quite  forgotten.  "What you been doin' this long  afternoon?" questioned Aurora, poking ner head into the tower room  without ceremony. "Supper's been  ready for ten minutes; but everything's so still 'round here I thought  maybe? you was sound asleep."  Nancy glanced up from the lengthy  and momentous letter she was writ-1  ing to her Aunt Louise.  "You're right, Aurora. I think I've  been asleep most of my life, but I'm  waking up, thank goodness! Did you  ever hear about Aladdin and his wonderful lamp?"  CHAPTER Xn.  Nancy's letter to her Aunt Louise  arrived on a Saturday, and she carried it out to Edgemere to read  aloud. The young people had been  gone more than a month, and as the  strangeness of their absence wore  away, life was settling down into its  new routine, and Phil declared he  never wanted to go hack to the city.  There were times when his' mother  agreed with him. Despite financial  worry, Margaret Nelson was conscious of a sense of restfulness which  had been lost to her during the last  few years. Fond as she was of her  husband's sister, -Louise's almost  daily comments on the children often  annoyed her; but now the week-end  visit was something to look forward  to. To-day she arrived on the train  with her brother, and said before she  had taken off her hat:  "I've a letter from Nancy, It's  rather surprising on the whole.  Shall I read it now?"  "Let's wait till I get supper on tho  table," suggested Margaret, with a  glance at her husband's tired face.  "Phil says   he's   famished,   and   no  wonder! He's dug out every path since  four o'clock. I don't know what rd  do without that boy, here in the  country.   He's a real worker."   '  "And in town there were no chores  to occupy him," observed bis aunt.  "This move has been a splendid thing  for Phil, Margaret. He looks and  acts like a different boy. And I'm  not sure hut that the visit to Colorado has done something for Nancy,  even if I did oppose it. Just wait  till I drop my things and ni help  with supper. Those beans-smell the  way Boston baked beans ought to  smell!   Til be down in a moment.*'  Watching his sister run lightly up  the stairs, James Nelson wondered if  the change in environment hadn't  benefited her as well as Phil. Fos  sibly Louise appreciated this taste  of -ftwr*"***g THfa the *betters because of  her absence during tbe week. As  she disappeared, he bent to kiss bis  wife for the second time since bis  arrival. It was, Margaret comprehended, an effort on his part to make  up for the lack of cheering news,  and tactfully refrained from asking  how tbe day had gone.  "This is wonderful brown bread,"  declared Louise when they assembled  at supper. "In our days of affluence, Margaret, Td completely forgotten tbat you could cook! "Til  take two bites and then read the letter. Have "you heard from Colorado yourself to-day?"  "A note from Jack. He says���������***  "It was addressed to me," broke in  Phil impatiently. "He'd learned to  milk; and Is siding horseback every  day. He says those Adam peopie  are awf 'ly nice, and that Mr. Adam  does a lot of cooking because bis  wife doesn't like to and he does. He  hadn't seen Nancy for more'n a week,  but one of the Adam boys waa there  to dinner���������at Cousin Columbine's, I  mean; and there's been a blizzard;  and Cousin Columbine and Nancy  are going to eat Christmas dinner at  the ranch 'cause they can't spare  Jack; and Mr. Adam's going to cook  the turkey all himself. I wish I  could go to Colorado and get a job.  Just feel my muscle."  Aunt Louise complied obligingly;  and having satisfied ber first hunger,  Who  hath   despised  the   day   of  small things?    Zechariah 4:10.  Little things on little wings  Bear little souls to heaven.  An occasional effort even of an  ordinary holiness may accomplish  great acts of sacrifice, or bear  severe pressure of unwonted trial.  But constant discipline in unnoticed  ways, and the spirit's silent unselfishness becoming the bidden habit of  life, give to it its saintly beauty, and  this is the result of care and lowly  love in little things. Perfection is  attained more readily by this constancy of religious faithfulness in all  minor details of life, consecrating  the daily efforts of self-forgetting  love.  Love's secret is to be always doing  things for God, and not to mind because they are such very little ones.  Some Old Bank Notes  And  Found In Ancient Records  ~Dated 1*170 And 1T39  Twro samples of paper currency,  issued by British Colonies in America  before they became American States,  have just come to light at Cincinnati, Ohio. They are a Maryland  note for six dollars, entitling the  holder to receive "Bills of exchange  payable in London with gold or silver, at the rate of four shillings and  sixpence for each dollar," dated 1770,  and a New Jersey bill, issued in  1776, for twelve shillings. Both bear  the warning: "To counterfeit is  death." The bills were found in a  bundle of old records in the Cincinnati Board of Education Library.

I  C. F. HAYES, Editor and Owner !  CRESTON,  B.C.,  FRIDAY,   AUG.   9  HQNE   BREW  If no extra expense  will be  in  curred Creston wou'd very  much |  appreciate  the   B.C.  Tree  Fruit j  Board taking  into   consideration ]  the  matter  of  showing  Creston i  vaiiey as a distinct producing district when putting out crop estimates or production bulletins.    We  have one of these just to hane and  must  object  to being designated  "Creston  and  Kootenay."    This  shows  last  year's   shipments as!  totaling 360,000 boxes, and having in mind that 260,000 of these  came from Creston, it seems to us  the latter output puts Creston in  a class that entit es this section  i to be shown in a class by itself  and not included with a flock of  Arrow Lakes points, for instance,  which market their crop by Bennett wagon and wheelbarrow  transpor:, and for the most part  orchard run. While Creston cannot deny its habitat, that is  about all it has in common with  the other Kootenay producing  districts (except Boswell) and  both on the quantity and quality  of its fruits it certainly is entitled  to a separate and distinct appel-  ation.

"Sk*!  mtm  Slow-Motion Camera  Photographs Lightning  Same  In  Like many other Canadian citizens the writer listened to Hon. Mackenzie King's first radio broadcast a few nights ago, just as he has listened  to the radio addresses of Premier Bennett and other political leaders in  which their respective party programmes and public issues of the day were  discussed. In h."s address Mr. King: gave emphasis to a word���������Whither.  He, of course, applied it to the political trends of the day and asked tiie  Canadian electorate to give serious thought to -"whither" the various policies  now being urged upon them for acceptance were leading.  It is not the intention of the writer to follow Mr. King* in giving to this  wora a political application. Party politics are eschewed as subjects for  discussion in this column. But as we listened to Mr. King and hia use of  this word, the thought was forced upon us: Do -we as Individuals ask ourselves, as we should, whither we are headed in many of the undertakings  upon which we embark? Or do we lightly engage in them without sufficient consideration, and without any very clear idea fixed in our minds as to  what we hope to achieve?  A sailor as he leaves his home port knows whither ho is bound. He is  headed for a definite port, and he equips himself wiih chart and compass to  guide him to such port by the most direct route. He knows why he, ia  headed to suc"tt particular port. An explorer does not lightly enter into the  trackless forest or well-nigh, impassible jungle "Without knowing-whither he  is bound, and the mining prospector likewise knows -whither he Is bound  and the objective he hope to achieve.  But how many of us as we pursued our way through public school, and  possibly through high school and even college and university "had a definitely  defined goal before us which it was our ambition and determination to  reach? Did we, as we devoted yeajs to study, know whither we were  bound, or did we proceed unthinkingly with our school studies with no very  fixed idea in mind as to the vocation in life we proposed to follow?  And as we possibly just drifted into some kind of a job, or were apparently forced into some position or occupation seemingly by environment  or force of circumstances, did we even then asked ourselves, whitker am  I going? Is this the kind of work for w3xich I am best fitted? Or am I  just allowing myself to drift without any particular effort on my part to I  direct my life into proper channels? In a word, did we take the trouble  to provide ourselves with, a chart and compass to guide us to our true  destination?  Furthermore, having found our lot cast in a particular field of endeavor, and possibly feeling fairly "content therein, did we even then query  ourselves���������whither? That is,"did we merely accept our work as a means  of livelihood, and nothing else? Or did we, do we now, regard our work as  something more, something finer, than a means of sustenance? Whither  are we headed? To render real service to mankind and to our country, to  make the world a better and happier place because we are in it, or are we  simply content to walk the treadmill of life as we find it?  As citizens do we ever take time to pause and consider -whither the  community in which we live is headed, whither our churches are taking us,  whither our schools and colleges are educating our children? What are  the moral trends of the times? Are they in the direction of developing  stronger characters than those of bygone generations, or is the reverse  true? Is our own little community growing better, or worse; is it being  beautified or is it retrograding?  Nothing in Nature stands still. If it has life it Ss moving, either forward or backward. Nature abhors a vacuum. Mankind is the chief of all  the works of Nature, and he must progress or slip backward. Each individual, if he or she is wise, will stop and ask���������whither am I going? The  person tempted to a dishonest or criminal act should pause and consider,  whither?    What is the end of the road upon which I propose to travel?  And what is true of the individual, is true of the nation. All nations  and all peoples may well ask themselves at this time of predictiongkpf war,  or warlike preparations in all parts of the world, of uncompromising attitudes of nations in international conferences, whither are we drifting ?  What will be the outcome, the end, of another war? The Great War was  a source of loss to the whole world, to the victors as well as to the vanquished, and to those who remained neutral. Each and all suffered. It will  be so again. Is that what we want, as nations, as individuals? Is it not  time we stopped and gave consideration, the most serious consideration of  our lives, to that old English word���������whither?  Let the reader apply this word to his own actions, his life activities,  his next decision. Try and probe the future a bit; seek to visualize tho  outcome of any move you are about to make. Do not go blindly and  thoughtlessly ahead.   Ask yourself in all seriousness���������whither?  Eloctriclty   la   Bolt   Aa  Ordinary Ught Bulb  Slow motion cameras have been  used by science editors of The Country Home, New York* to measure  thunderbolts and estimate just how  muck electricity is released in a  flash, of lightning.  Considering all the noise a thunderstorm can make, it is a little disconcerting to discover that tho average thundercloud has a store of only  just about as much electricity as  flows through an ordinary electric  light bulb in a minute. It generates  this much electricity In five minutes,  maintains it at this value for a  longer or shorter period, and then  lets it fly as a lightning flash at a  pressure of about five billion volts,  enough to blow a man down, or a  horse, or even a small house. The  pressure makes the discharge both  spectacular and dangerous, and the  thundercloud machine is continuously generating electricity at thia pressure, a single cloud often developing  three million kilowatts of power.  Photographs indicate that when a  cloud is ready to hurl a thunderbolt  it first oozes out a tiny tongue of  flame. This stretches earthward  about 50 yards from the cloud. It  pauses and then wades out for a  10,000th. of & second. It then reappears and stretches another 50  yards. This process continues until  the ground is reached. Branch tongues  often spring out from it. The instant  the leading tongue lashes the earth,  the main part of the stroke begins.  A brilliant flame sweeps upward  from the ground toward the cloud,  retracing the path literally "biased  by the leader. This second stroke  is much quicker lasting but 50 mil-  lionths of a second.

During a dinner of the Cork lodge  a band of men rushed into the lodge,  overturned the tables and fired revolver shots, using blank cartridges.  It was believed that this outrage was  committed because the guests exhibited too much fervor in singing  "God Save the King."  Following this episode, Ruttledge  offered to provide protection for  Masonic lodges on the occasion of  annual dinners but he was assured  this was not considered necessary.  He then suggested that "God Save  the King" could be omitted in future.  The suggestion was adopted but  Masons will continue to toast His  Majesty. The toast will be in silence,  however, so that extremists can  scarcely find grounds for breaches  of the peace on its account.  Becomes Separate Grade  Recompense For Garnet-Wheat Holders M YLoos Results  Egeetive Aug-. 1, Garnet whs&t will  be marketed as a separate* grade, B.  B.

Its price, he said, will be determined  by ordinary market conditions/  The wheat will be marketed  through existing channels, stated Mr.  "-Ramsay. Ke looked upon the change  aa a routine matter, which should  produce no undue difficulties.  At the last session of parliament,  $1,500,000 -was voted to recompense  Garnet wheat holders while the new  method of marketing was being  evolved, If any loss resulted. Previously, Garnet wheat had been  graded with No. 2 Northern.  The new grade will be separated  into two varieties, No. 1 Garnet and  No. 2 Garnet. Any Garnet wheat  not good enough, to be graded No.  2, will be put into No. 3 Northern br  Sower grades. The price of the new  grade will be fixed in the open market, similar to the present method  in force in other grades.  321  SIMPLE     SMART     DRESS    XJKS1  Crowds Worship Sign  Crowds of superstitious persons  have each night been worshipping before a mysterious red glow in the  window of a school in tho French  concession at Shanghai.

The drouth area in Saskatchewan  was also extending.  -In the west, the report sa'.d, "July  has again provided conditions that  were fatal to the good crop prospects  -on the southern plains where the conditions in May and June were so  promising." In addition to the rust,  the drouth area which had been  limited to rather-narrow belts along  the Alberta-Saskatchewan boundary,  was extending eastward. Harvesting of the main- wheat crop would  not be general in that area for two  or three weeks "so the prospect is  very indefinite and unsatisfactory."  "Rust has so severely infected the  1,500,000 acres of bread wheat in  Manitoba that only a'very light yield  of poor quality grain can be expected. The infection on the remaining 1,000,000 acres of Durum wheat  remains slight. Coarse grains are  also rusted.  "Rust and drouth are causing serious reductions in Saskatchewan crop  prospects and the weather of the  next two or three weeks will have a  very important bearing on the ultimate yield. In large areas running  through the centre of the province  . from north to south, crop conditions  remain very promising.  "In Alberta, the southern and some  central areas will harvest light crops,  but good prospects persist over the  remainder of the province.

Craigie, officer in  charge of the Dominion rust research laboratory.  In Manitoba, stem rust has affected wheat as far north as Riding  Mountain National Parkand in some  cases* has attained "severe epidemic  proportions" in common wheats, the  report said.  The western limit bf infection in  Saskatchewan seemed to be slightly  west of a north-south line drawn  from Saskatoon to Moose Jaw, with  severe infestation in the southeastern  flection. Some traces were found  north of Prince Albert. No stem rust  has been reported from Alberta.

McCormick, member of the  society's party touring Canada, said  here.  Mr. McCormick, making a survey  of Canadian political and economic  problems with regard to their effect  upon Scottish-Canadian trade, stated  the society imported 3,000,000 bushels of Canadian wheat a year. He  added the society owns the largest  flour mills in Scotland and made the  best and cheapest bread in that country using 90 per cent. Canadian hard  wheat.  He was not impressed with the  Ottawa agreements, Mr. McCormick  continued and Scottish trade had  benefited little from them: Free trade  was the only proper method of dealing with international exchange of  goods.

RELIEF SYSTEm  IN ONTARIO IS  TO BE CHANGED  Toronto. ���������: Drastic reorganization  of Ontario's system of unemployment relief to curtail costs and to  return responsibility for relief administration to the municipalities  was announced by Premier Mitchell  F. Hepburn following a session of the  Ontario cabinet.  "These steps are absolutely necessary to maintain the solvency of the  government," the-premier declared  as he revealed his government had  established a new basis for the province's contribution to relief costs.  Instead of paying a proportion of  total relief costs the government will  make specified lump sum payments  on a per capita basis.  From September 1, in all of the 17  bankrupt municipalities where the  government has assumed the full  burden of relief, the province's contribution will be payment of a maximum of $7.50 monthly per capita.  The per capita costs in these municipalities under the present system  has ranged from $3.50 to $13.50* per  month.   *  In all other municipalities exclusive of the unorganized districts of*  northern Ontario the government's  masisnum contribution will be $5  per capita after Sept. 1.  Municipalities will be required to  assume full responsibility for relief  administration.  This reversal of the policy of Hon.  David Croll will be accompanied, the  premier said, by a drastic shakeup  within the welfare department. "Our  objective is to reduce the welfare department to a mere shell." the premier said.  "The per capita cost of relief is  lower in. many of the municipalities  which handle their own relief. Our  system has been too expensive," he  said.  Under the present system the premier estimated that relief would  cost the - province about $36,000,000  a year. By the new plan it is ex-  pecte'd that a saving of more than  $750,0Q0 monthly can be effected.  There would be an immediate saving  of about $240,000, annually in administrative costs alone, the premier  explained.
