Mr. David McNicholl,' vice1

days ago returned to Winnipeg
after a week spent ���������in the Okanagan Valley and other points
in British'\Columbia.'"
���������Okanagan Valley there, is evidence" of great development in
fruit farming," he said in an interview on his return. "I was
struck with the number of new
orchards which are dotted all
over the district. Prospects aiv
for a splendid crop this year. I
motored from Kelowna _to JVcr-_
non, and everywhere found
farmers very optimistic . Market for British Columbia fruit is
increasing every year in sympathy with the settlement and
development of the prairie provinces. Thc quality of thc produce, in my opinion, compares
very favorably with the.fruit of
Nova Scotia and Ontario, and is
ahead of thc California article.
"Transporation facilities for
fruit from British Columbia
have often been criticised but
the fact remains that thc fruit
is there, and il has to be got
out of there.' Thc Valley is
tapped by different Canadian
railways at various suitable
points and sufficient means for
thc shipment of the fruit are already at thc command oT the
railways, but there is little doubt
but that they will be dealt with
as they arise, to the best interest
of growers and public alike. The
C.'-P.-R. will spend much money
in the Okanagan this year and
next, and we will gridiron the
Valley with railways before

JUNE 4, 1914  APPALLING  DISASTER  At-2 o'clock hist Thursday morning, al Father Point, on the .St.  Lawrence river, the Canadian Pacific oceanic steamer, Empress of  Ireland, was rammed by the Danish  collier Slorstatl and cut nearly in  two. The Empress of Ireland had  sailed from Quebec thc afternoon  before, with a passenger list, of i)55  and crew numbering '132���������������������������a loial  of 1,387. Of this number only  423 were saved. Of the 964 lives  lost, 753 were passengers and 211  crew. Of the 403 saved the passengers numbered 201, and crew  202. Thus is told the awful fads  of one of the most lamentable marine disasters in the annals of shipping, the loss of life being almost  as great as in the wreck of the Titanic. The story of the disaster is  iL^'L'I1 ������������������1_ 3)}_?\_L\o J.JRn SS<_. tjut  from   British   Columbia.       In.one  party of   Salvation   Army   officers  anil musicians, going to Englnd  lo  participate  in  an  annual  reunion,  120 out of MO were lost in the ship.  To comment on a cataslrophy so  appalling as this is beyond one, and  needless.    To attempt' to place the  blame is quite as foolish.     It was  one of  those accidents that  casts  gloom over  the world  every now  and  then, and  makes us stand in  j awe of the powerful machines man  = i has developed in the hands of men  incapable of handling them.   And  wc  can   talk  of -unsinkablc  ships,  fool-proof, machines and  whatnot,  but men  have not yet been made  with brains and. senses to work automatically with the brain  of the  machine, and until this is possible  there will be accidents such as the  wreck of the Titanic and the ramming of the Empress of Ireland.  And where such numbers an;  carried, Ihe loss when, ah accident  comes must be correspondingly  heavy.  Perhaps It Is for this very ret-  to n that It Is worth while now,  In mid-summer, to point out to  the discerning mind that "reputation" Is not always worth the  price paid for It Surely the real  value of man or woman Is character, that foundation upon  which alone a superstructure  which endures may be built.  Get all tho fame that flows to  you honestly, from a good, well  directed, forceful life. Get all  the money you can honestly get.  The man who says he loves to  be poor Is a liar, and he takes  you and me for fools or he  wouldn't try to make us credit  It. Win position In the world If  you feel that your destiny calls  you to It. No sane person' can  underrate the Importance of  fame, er wealth, or position, but  the man who wins these things  by paying for them with his  health, his happiness or the sacrifice of all chance of knowing  the sweetness and joy of living,  has made a sorry bargain and Is  poor Indeed.  The greed for gold, and its  fellow phantom, fame, make  the winding sheet of lost illusions���������������������������youth and hope. The  fever of pursuit so entirely  enslaves us nowadays that there  seeme to be no hour that can  belong to friendship, none that  ean belong to solitude and reflection, none to the discovery of  ourselves, it should not matter  how we ������������������re Judged by the world;  but how shall we Judge ourselves, by our reputation or by  our character?. Character is property, is power, Is Influence; it  makes frlende, creates funds,  draws patronage and support,  and opens a sure and easy, way  to wealth, honor and happiness.  As you prise your character, so  you are.  BANKoFMONTREAL  Established 1817  Capital, $16,000,000  (paid up)  Rest, U6,000,0*0  H. V.

I ftomr Citn J&tate I  of the Titanic, for the Empress of  Ireland was lying lo in the channel  owing to the fog and mist, while  the collier was making poll, apparently at full speed.  The estimated  loss in  the sinking of the  Empress  is $2,000,000,  in  the steamship  itself, $1,000,000  in silver bars shipped from Cobalt  -to-Englandr and-.i>2f>lJ-,000 iircargo.  The ramming by the collier was  apparently Ihe result of signals being misunderstood, coupled with  the excess speed of Ihe coal ship.  Just before the disaster, Capt. Kendall, of tlie Empress, signalled to  the Slorslad, which was seen approaching in the. mist, "1 am continuing my course." This signal  was answered by tbe collier. ThcnJ  Capl. Kendall sounded the Empress  whistles twice, saying "1 am stopping." The lights of the collier  showed the Slorslad bearing down  upon them, and Capt. Kendall signalled the engine room to reverse  and steam full astern. 11 was too  late, however lo escape the on-coming collier and thc Empress was  rammed amidships, the plates being  ripped open to an enormous  /ength.  Before Ihe passengers could be  taken charge of the Em (Dress began to settle, and in ten minutes  the huge steamship sank to the  bottom, only a small portion of  her funnels remaining out of the  water.  THE FIRST PRINTER'S DEVIL  In the early days of printing this  art was much of a mystery, and ignorant people thought the printer  evoked the aid of the power of the  devil. Aldlus Manulius, thc famous  Italian printer of the 10th century,  went to Africa on an exploring expedition, and brought back with  him a very black negro boy. Negro  boys^were^a-=-ra ri ly-^t hen .==!Hhe-^ report immediately gained circulation that the printer had been employing the Black Art in the work,  and that the pickaninny was in  reality an imp of satan. ITc was  called the "Little Black Devil." The  charge became so serious thai the  printer was forced to exhibit the  negro in public.    In his announce-  FfeTi'riTcTsaidy--"'  "Be it known to Venice thnt I,  Aldus Manulius, printer to Ihe  Holy Church and lo the Doge, have  this day made public exposure of  the Prinler's Devil. All those who  think he is not flesh and blood  come and pinch him."  And that is how the term  "Prinler's Devil" had ils origin.  TIME TABLE  <~:������������������h**M"H~:*w  Praise it.

NEWCOMERS IN NOVA SCOTIA  HAVE  YOUR  PRINTING DONE IN THE HOME TOW 1*7.  THE  WALKER   PRESS  Figures compiled by Mr. Arthur S.  Barnstead, Secretary of Industries and  Immigration  for Nova    Scotia,  show  that the total    immigration    In 1913  amounted to 6,438 persons.    Ol those  2,132 were    of English    origin,    542  Scotch, 127 Irish and 43 Welsh. There  Is an increase of 330 in these nation  allties, compared with "1912.   The foi  eigners who settled  in  the  province  during the year, of whom particular'  are available, numbered 2,685.    Thesr  are, ,for the most part, at work wltl.  the coal companies or with construe  tion gangs.    Of the newcomers ther  were  368    farmers, 575    miners,  29  craftsmen, 1,672 laborers,  621 house  wives, 487 domestics, and 945 children,  The   farmers   were  either  placed  a>  farm laborers or purchased farms .under the direction of the Department  of Industries and Immigration.    Thc  total capital brought In by these farmers was S3Q1.000.  OFFSETTING  COM  The thing for thc merchants of this community  to do in their own in teres--! s is to advertise faithfully, and to make their printed announcements  interesting and helpful to those whose trade n\u\  favor are desired.   ,  The "serious competitors of the retailers of this  community arc thc big stores of Ihe big cities���������������������������  those that send out catalogues and have mail  order departments.  Thc poorest way to offset this "competition is for  our local merchants to remain silent. For them  not to "speak up" is to give the mail order houses  a belter chance to get business from this community.  A NOTE TO THE PUBLIC  When you send your money out of this com-,  munity,' you enrich the great shops and impoverish this community. Strengthen���������������������������not weaken���������������������������  the merchants of this community. It will all be  returned to you.in the form of better service and  better values. .......

Ever since  the adoption of paper currency It has  been the constant study of bank-note  engravers to get up some plan of printing bills that could not be counter-  felted.    In this they 'only partly succeeded till as late as 1857, when a  man named Stacy J.vEdson invented  a kind of green Ink, which he patented  June 30th of that year.   At Is called  antl-photographlc Ink, because It cannot be photographed and cannot be  dislodged with   alkalies   by counterfeiters to get a complete facsimile of  the bills.    As it is a secret known  only to the American Bank Note Company and the inventor, it Is impossible  to counterfeit the greenback money.  ^Even^lf^the^composIMon^of^the^lnlr  was known, It would be of no use,  as the work could not be copied from  the genuine bills with any other kind  of Ink.

L. S. GRAY, ;Florist -.
F. G .Moorehead, in the Technical World, of New,York, has this to
say on the question- "How to Get
Back to the Farm." , The points
brought out arc worthy o������ earnest
thought by anyone and all who ^labor under the delusion that farming
is an easy proposition that anyone
can handle. Particularly interesting should the article be to many"
in the Okanagan, who have jumped
from the fetid quarters "of the city
to the wide open atmosphere of
the farm, little counting the great
change in conditions, and little believing the diverse requirements of
the man taking upon himself- the
responsibilities of-handling a farm:
"What chance has ,the'-city man
oh-the , farm? _-, The j average "^cilv
manj' I mean; the one who"doesn't
know whether it's Shropshire hogs
or Berkshire sheep; who think that

a hard-headed farmer of 65, who
had lived in .the city until he was
50 and then, because of undue competition, quit his job of harness-
making, invested his savings in a
little 35-acre farm, and started life
all over again. -

acres of land for $300 from my savings. The land, of course, was not
the best, but' the soil .was good and
I am living on the land today.
" 'I traded my driving horse for a
team of old ^marGs so I could farm
my land. One of thc mares raised
a colt. I paid a dollar each for a

the best implements in thc .world,

better than going in debt for tools

" 'On account of hail my firs I

ever., ,
" 'Here is some advice to men
contemplating farming: 'Get married. The sooner the better. Never
in the world start farming without
a wife; better be without ahorse, a
cow, a plough. I married, at this
time, the best girl in the world..

on him by^inheriting a big tract oi

" 'Travel and read,' he answered.
'When I decided to abandon my an:
ticipated career as an architect and
go into the farming game, I devoted
two years to travelling and reading. I visited farms all over, the
country;- demonstration "farms,
where everything was model; individual farms, where men were
just barely making both ends meet.
Between trips I bought standard
textbooks: Henry's 'Feeds and
Feeding,' Craig's 'Sheep Farming,'
Davenport's 'Principles of Breeding,' Shaw's 'Management and Feeding .of Cattle,' Coburn's 'Swine in
America,' and 'Book of Alfalfa,'
and so on. 1 read them, too���������every
word. Then I subscribed for some
good farm papers and read them. It
was not until I had put in two
solid years cramming on farming,
just as I used to cram on Greek and
trigonometry in the state university
that I actually went to work. With
two years' home" study' and travel,
keeping my eyes and ears open aij
the time, I started farming. The
first year I lost money, but last year
(my fifth) I netted 14 per cent,
which is pretty good for a green
"I travelled to another state, once
more asking my question of every
farmer I met. Said one:! 'Tell your
troubles to the state college of agriculture; that's what it's for. If you

worked for 25c a day, and I have
worked for $5 a day���������on two occasions. I lost a job paying $2.50 a
day once because I wouldn't give
the boss a dime to buy whiskey.
" After twelve years of wage earning, I bought a forty-acre farm ii
Gibson County, Ind. .After .paying
for it I had $500 left. Since then I
have added fiflcen acres more, and
now I have a well-kept farm of 5o
" 'To the young man who wants
to make good, my advice is to slay
with your job until you get a belter
one, save your wages and don I
drink or gamble.'
"And here was the wisdom th.it
came to me from a man in Nebraska, a prosperous farmer who took
my editor friend's advice and began as a hired hand, working p
whole year for $125, of which he
saved $100:
" 'No matter how small the pay,'
he said,' I always made it a rule to
save part of my wages. When the
times were hard and wages low, 1
worked for small wages rather than
remain idle. I did not draw ������riy
vages every week or month. Qui:
often I would loan my wages, and
more besides, ot my employer, making my money earn money.
" 'I have worked in many different'places,, in stores, in livery
barns and on thc railroad, but I
found the best place to save money
was on the farm.   At 23 I bought 80

Woods  TRADING STAMPS AND GIFTS  xx:  innino^inst'joiirj&onifloiiin  <>4^4<>-4*>'r<>+o+<>4^  :c  DO YOU EXPECT TOO MUCH FRO M YOUR LOCAL MERCHANTS ?  When trading stamps first came  into the mercantile field, there was  a great amount of discussion as lo  thc rights or merchants to use this  means of gift giving to induce patrons to trade with them. The Je-  - gality of the transaction was tested in court, with the result that in  many cases where cities and states  had passed laws placing a penally  on users of trading stamps it was  declared unconstitutional. In some'  cases, however, the courl held thai  the statute was a valid exercise of  thc police power, on the ground  thai the. trading stamp scheme by  which the enterprise was conducted was a burden on both the  merchant and purchasers of their  goods. Where there is an" element of chance as to the value of  an article which a certain number  of trading stamps may draw, the  general view is that the scheme.is  akin to lottery, and illegal.  To stretch the local trading  stamp law so as to make it cover  the giving of a pound of lea with  every dollar or two dollar purchase  is going beyond all reason, and can  not but bring ridicule upon any  o/Iicer attempting thus lo interfere  in the private business of the individual, or with dealings between  individuals, if thc local law is to  be carried this far,-il is up lo Ihe  city council to get after the Sun-kist  orange people of California, the  manufacturers of various soaps, the  Quaker Oats people, the cigarette  .makers. ...and ��������������������������� various ...and..sundry.  To the women of Enderby���������������������������  You have probably read of the  wonders of the stores of Ihe big  cities; of the immense stocks they  carry; of the wonderful' displays  Hint hold the interest of thousands  of feminine shoppers.  Possibly you take the women's  fashions magazines and glory in Ihe  styles and goods pictured on Ihe  pages. You gel enthused with this  model or thai pattern���������������������������one out of  hundreds���������������������������and decide you want il.  Do you expect your local merchant to have it jn slock ?  Possiply he has���������������������������well" and good.  But if he has not���������������������������what then ?  Will you send oulof town for il ?  Or will you give your local deakv  an opportunity of getting it for you.  Every merchant has out of town  connections���������������������������trade channels that  give them opportunities to purchase goods. That is why, when  anything special is asked for, he is  in a better position to secure the  article  than  you.  When a merchant decides to go  into business, he selects, first the  city or town in which he will locate. Here again we bump up  against the results of "sinning  against your home town." No businessman is going to invest capital  in a town where trade is sent OUT  of it. He guages the probable business he will be able lo secure by thc.  spirit of Ihe people, and progressiveness of the town.  He will talk with merchants already established, as well as with  the   local   bankers.     He  will   talk j  with local people, seeing what their  ideas are, etc. Then he will lake  all thc fads, put them together and  decide. He will be able lo gauge  just about how much business he  can count on and if he starts in he  will invest just the amount of capital the local possibilities warrant.  Thc goods he stocks up with arc  those generally in demand. He  cannot afford lo carry goods that  have Utile or no demand, because  his success depends on his-turning  his capital over (selling out his  stock and then replenishing). The  longer his,goods slay unsold, the  more money he loses, (the capital  he has invested, if deposited in a  bank would draw interest. By selling the goods in a reasonable time  he makes his interest on the difference between buying at wholesale  and selling at retail).   '  To our women readers the foregoing may seem a little confusing,  but if they will read it over again  it will be clearer and they will see  that their local merchants are business men who will be glad to serve  them with every means in their  power.  And if^they are given an opportunity of using that power, it will  not be long before they can enlarge  Lheir business-for your benefit. So  it is hardly fair to expect race  reasonably from your local merchants.  And if your dealer has not what  you ask for, let HIM send for it.  You will get better service and it  will not cost you any more.  Just Received  A full line of the  Celebrated English  SHOES  All sizes and widths.

"With this " last interview I  stopped, for I believed my questioi  had been answered: hard work,  thrift, experience little by little, a  modest beginning, observation,  reading, and, above all, a good  wife. I had learned enough to convince me that the way was rough  and rocky; that the city man who  goes back to the land has no sinecure; that bitter experiences lurk  for him behind every tree, around  every turn of the winding road. 1  had become convinced that much  of the story of success for the man  who knows no more about farming  than he does of Martian manners  and customs was fantasy���������������������������sort of  'Peter Pan' of eternal hope. But 1  had learned, moreover, that success  could and would come to the man  who went into farming as he  would go into the law or medicine  or,plumbing, or .anything _clse,_and  study it from thc beginning.  "For thc last word, a little bit of  " 'Let Mr. Cityman start "with 80  acres,' he advised. 'Eighty acres of  good land here in the grain belt can  be bought for $100 an acre, and for  less in newer sections. He can buy  this $8,000 worth of land by paying  half down and giving a six per cent  mortgage for tlie balance/with the  option of paying it'air off after thc  second' year; or he can pay three  thousand dollars, and give a six per  cent .$"1,000 first mortgage and a  seven per cent $1000 second mortgage. Thca he should invest $1,500  in stock and machinery; $600 for  cattle, hogs and poultry (four good  dairy cows, six good brood sows, a  flock of 100 hen's); $400 for implements, part of which he can get on  three to six months' time.  " 'With this investment of, say,  $10,000 (about one-half of which  will have to be cash down) he is  ready lo start. Let him plant 35 of  his 80 acres to corn, 10 to oats, and  leave the remainder for meadow,  pasture, and feed lots.
