Food Value of Apples
y Apples arc a standard food
product. Many people think of
apples as a tonic or relish used
for dessert or as an appetizer.
Apples rank in food value close
to potatoes and higher than a
number of other vegetables. The
best grade of apples runs from
15 to 18 per cent in-food value,
mainly sugar; thus in twelve

THURSDAY, AUGUST 22, 1918  OKANAGAN   COMMONER  CROPS IMPROVED  Late Rains Bring Better Outlook for Wheat Harvest in  Northwest  The Dominion Bureau of Statistics has just issued the usual  crop report compiled from late  returns of crop correspondents.  The perliminary estimate of  the yield per acre of fall wheat  foi: Canada is 15% bushels as  against 21V2 in 1917, 23 bushels in 1916, the decennial average for 1908-1917. Upon the  harvested area of 340,000 acres,  r this gives a total yield of 5,275,-  700 bushels as compared with  15,363,450 bushels in 1917 and  17,590,000 bushels in 1916.    In  [> Ontario, where thc bulk of the  fall wheal is grown, thc estimated total vield for 1918 is  4,435,200 bushels from 277,200  acres, a , yield per acre of 16  bushels, as compared with last  year's estimate of 14,114,800  bushels from 656,500 acres, a  rate per acre of 21 l/o bushels.  Thc total yield of hay and clover  lor Canada is placed at 10,064,-  100 tons from 8,015,250 acres,  representing a yield per acre of  V/u ton. Thc corresponding  figures of 1917 were 13,684,700  tons from 8,225,034 acres, or  1.66 ton per acre.  In thc Prairie Provinces the  drought remained unbroken until towards thc end of July, and  serious damage to wheat in the  blossom stage w-.is caused by  heavy   frosts    which   occurred  I from thc 23rd to the 25th of the  month.

Experience has fully established the  fact that genuine, creative cooperation can live only when  based upon its own efforts and  thoroughly independent, called  into being by the earnest will of  tlie people who practise it. A  government may teach, instruct  and assist with means for obtaining knowledge. It need not  grudge any generosity on such  work. But the resolution to cooperate must be the free will act  of the co-operators themselves.  ���������������������������Henry W. Wolff.

When prohibition was enacted in Canada,  i these  men   quietly%crossed  the  line, and the United States gets  the benefit from their labor.    A  Toronto paper made the statement that registration  in  Canada had proved  that,  allowing  for enlistments,  the population  of Canada was onc million men  short.    With Canada in debt to  the United States, this is a bad  policy, and should be remedied.  With these facts before us, is it  wise to carry on experiments?  Which is the greatest evil for  Canada, a few drunken men, or  conditions such as they are now  with population dwindling and  no  hope  for immigrants  after  the war?

I am a businessman and  manufacturer,   not  engaged  or  interested in the liquor business  in  any form, neither do I use  liquor myself."   I am interested,  in a munition plant in Eastern'  Canada  that has  ceased  work,  on account of the labor short- J  age. With a view to finding out  why so many men had leftCan-  ada, I visited tlie factoiries on  the other side of thc line, in the  Buffalo district, where- the labor shortage is  not so  acute.,  The facts are these: Nearly all  ccivc a setback for many years.  "Canada, with her vast natural resources, must have labor  to develop these resources. If  this help can only be obtained  from beer-drinking nations, why  in the name of common sense  drive them awav. Surely the  most ardent prohibitionist does  ,not imagine he can change the  habits of a life-time by merely  making a few laws. The class  of laborer wc get from foreign  countries docs not argue aboul  thc right or wrong of the drink  question. He is��������������������������� used to beer,  and does good work on it. If he  cannot get it, he moves on to  new fields.  "The good people of Canada  will naturally araue that the  United States will soon have  prohibition, and there will be  no place for them * to go. Rut  never was a greater fallacy. Thc  United States is far too wise to  risk losing her immigrants for  the sake of a little beer. The  writer has lived in prohibition!

The "World"  drew attention at the time to  the soundness of this proposal.  In the scale recently arranged  between the papermakers and  pulnmakers of the continent,  such a provision has been inserted. It recites that the scale  is based upon the, present cost of  [living, and piovides that at in-  ' tervals of six months during the  | war, and for six months tbere-  af ter, there vshall be an automatic adjustment if the government statistics show an increase  or decrease to the extent of ten  per cent. If the scale is upward or downward wages are to  he'raised or lowered accordingly  The incorporation of such a  clause in all wage-scales would  do much to anticipate disagreements. Its acceptance, how-  would,- renders it obligatory that  the government collect'and col  A warning  ens of this province to prepare  to resist an invasion of the lesser migratory locusts was given  by Mr. Treherne, B.
