Mr.   Henry  Ford of Detroit that he would pay a  minimum wage of Ave dollars a day  to all the employes In his factories,  even to the boys who sweep the floors  and' rus errands and that he would  distribute among them under a profit-  Eliaring plan ten million dollars a year  la cash, was the means of making  known to the general public a very  interesting personality. He is described as "a slim, active, little man,  ���������������������������with contemplative eyes and grayish  hair," and as not being liable to the  suspicion that he rose from the position of an ordinary mechanic. Mr.  Ford Is unconventional to the verge  of eccentricity, and, like many other  men who have achieved a reputation  for oddity, his fads have a family  resemblance among themselves. He  has a two-thousand-acre farm just outside of Detroit, on which he lives In  ji simple bungalow, of which the work  is done by two domestic servants.  He has a genuine love of nature, ancl  thinks John Burroughs the greatest  man in the world and Thomas Edison  ii good second.

The Useful Carrot  What Wouldst Thou More?  Here is a little-known culinary tip which every housewife  should note carefullv. Boiled  carrots, when properly treated,  form an excellent substitute for  eggs in puddings., Boil the carrots well, drain, mash, and press  through a strainer. The pulp is  then introduced among tlie ingredients. Puddings made' in  this manner are lighter, than if  eggs are used, and more palatable.

THURSDAY, AUGUST 29, 1918  GETTING TOGETHER  A   convention  of   the  newspapermen   of   the  Province was held at Vancouver last Friday and  Saturday.    It was a sor.t of getting together to  .-compare notes and note comparisons.   What was  'done measured up to Avhat was not done, and  therein lies a talc.   A tale not of woe, for newspapermen away from home are a bunch of quizzical quirts out of each of whom flows the cream  of thc.'milk' of human kindness. They'flay each  oilier with all the venom of a delinquent subscriber, then taffy ball the bunch with the bile of a barbarian.    They pass resolutions that will one day  set   the   world  afire  and  conceive  psychological  questions   that   would   out-SoIomoni/c   a   saint.'  They work the year around for Llie communities  in which they live free of any cost or emolument,  then come together once a year to share thc profits  and to learn ,from each oLher how to drop the  -word "for" out of this sentence.   They eat, drink,  smoke and  arc merry,   then  meander home in  twos and threes weighted to the gunwales with  good resolutions.-  Newspapermen arc thc most considerate persons.    Their prime purpose when  gathered  together is lo plan plans and perfect policies that  wi:U enable them  to pay one hundred cents on  the dollar while giving thc public one hundred  cents worth of merchandise for four bits.    They  measure the pocket* of their people, then gather  "IdjLvSthe.r   fo   discover.

BOARD OF TRADE  When Mr. Herbert Hoover addressed the Con-  amn sinners' Council recently at the offices of lhc  Brilish Ministry of Food in London, England,  he pointed out'that competition amongst the Allied countries in purchasing food supplies on  this continent has been arrested. Such competition was responsible in no small measure for lhc  rapid advance of prices in Canada and the United  Slates and prices woujd certainly have gone  much higher had it nol been for the combined  action of the British Ministry of Food, the. United  States Food Administration and the Canada Food;  Board, in grappling wilh the problem and so organizing the ��������������������������� purchasing of food supplies for  overseas eliminating competition among the Allied buyers.Tn-bringing about such organization,  thc Canada1 Food Board has had an important  part.  But while there no "longer is unrestrained competition hi purchases of food for overseas,  the  cost of production of agricultural produce of all  kinds is very high and this accounts, in large  measure, for the high prices which have been  rendered necessary in order to maintain and to  increase * production   under   adverse   war   conditions.    The most important question of all is  that of stimulating production and any possibil-i  ity of "reduction of supplies must nol be entertained, because of the huge requirements overseas,   lhc dependence of thc Allies upon  North  American for so large a proportion of their food,'  and   the military  and  economic importance of j  building up large reserves, both here and abroad.'  Discontent  over  prices  is  a   trifle  compared,  with discontent over hunger, which might have!  been  our lot, except for the Providence which '  paced us on this side of the Atlantic. Thc. Canada '  Food Board, by its license control over dealers j  in food and by regulations affecting all handlers  of food stuffs, has already done much to climin-;  ate  wholesale  profiteering  from   thc  wholesale  trade and to check  trade practices which havc  becn  to the disadvantage of both thc producer  and thc consumer.    The Food  Board asks  thc  people of Canada  to lend their support to  tbe  effort the board is making to keep prices to as  low a level as is consistent with thc obligation of  suppying the food needed by  the Allies.    This  can best be done by an intelligent study of the  food problem in all its phases.

"Thc fact of it being considered unprofessional  to advertise is a real good joke. Wc know of an  undertaker once who would not advertise. But  hc belonged to every lodge in thc city: his children went to three different denominations in thc  matter of Sunday schools; and the whole family  spread themselves out as much as a lean hen  trying to cover a setting of eighteen eggs. Advertising in thc press would havc bcen tame compared to thc exertions this chap made lo get himself nod his business known.

Any temporary relaxation of the  restrictions, such -as in the case of pork, must  not be construed as notice to thc public that extravagance in any food is again endurable.

According  to a recent newspaper statement  these, ferries carry- an average  of fourteen cars each trip. The  i'criyy between. Mission, and Mat-  sqiii makes sixteen round trips  daily, that between Ladner and  Woodward, six round trips, and  between Rosedale and Agassiz  five round trips are made. These  ferries give connection between  the north and south bank of the  Fraser, presumably where it is  im practicable to build bridges,  or where it is more practicable  to operate ferries than to? erect  bridges.  Here   in   the   Okanagan   the  government  has  built  a  trunk  road -"-which from Vernon south  to Kelowna lies on the cast side  of  Okanagan   Lake running  to  the water's edge a t Kelowna. To  continue tlie journey southward  it is necessary to cross the lake,  as the government trunk road  runs from Westbank Ferry to  tlie south on  the west side of  Okanagan  Lake.    Residents of  Lower   Oka na ga'rt   i>oin ts   have  no other course but to cross the  lake from Wcs thank'; to Kelowna, for though a road lias been  built  northward beyond West-  bank  Ferry  we  are informed  that  much  work  is  yet   to  be  done  to  make it  passable for  autos.   Thc ferry then is an essential   link   in   the   provincial  highway, traversing this Valley.  If it is right that the province  should   maintain   three   ferries  in  the lower  Fraser it should  also  give  a  free  ferry  service  across   the  Okanagan,  at  least  until such time as the road from  Westbank northward to Vernon  and beyond is made suitable for  motor traffic.���������������������������Summerland Review.

Through the long war with  France, Britain established her  commercial   prosperity.     With  thc close  of  the Civil War in  the United Stales began the era  of  American  induslrhd  expansion.    Thc war of 1870 laid a  load  upon  France which stimulated  her people,  lo  thrift,  industry and scientific utilization  of hcr raw materials. Necessity  drives nations as il drives individuals to greater economy and  exertion.    Few countries  havc  such rich  natural resources as  we have in Canada or such areas  of fciitilc land.    Wc may havc  trade    preferences    in    British  markets  and . probably, priority  of raw materials for the industries of thc Empire. Doubtless,  too, wc shall have an imperial  organization of shipping which  will give us-advantageous connections  wilh  British  and  foreign markets.   We have a great  railway system buill with cheap  money which may prove to bc  wise and far- anywhere except that the telephone posts going clear over  the top of the mountain.

It is legitimate lhat  lhc natural resources of Canada  should be developed in the national interest and that processes  of manufacture should bc carried to completion in Canadian  factories. Too often wc confuse  loyalty to Britain with loyalty  to the Empire. An industry in  Canada or settlement in Canada  is as valuable to thc Empire as  an industry or settlement elsewhere under tlie flag. If we  ever doubted this tliis war is a  complete and final demonstration. During the first years of  peace wc may have little immigration owing to shipping congestion, but wc shall nave continuous immigration in greater  or lesser degree from th^ United  States.' It will be necessary to  adjust immigration to condition.-* and with greater regard to  If thc newspapers correctly  mirror the. worlds events this is  a mad world. To the spectator  thc arena of human life resembles the playground of a madhouse, and .human activities appear thc antics of lunatics . Russian streets running red with  blood.

Germany, staggering, under thc  crushing wicght of militarism  and France and Rome in a conflict of hatred and suspicion.  Even reformers and churchmen  arc touched with the mania. Socialists parading with red flags,  crying violence and revolution,  temperance papers sizzling with  denunciations; and the opposing  schools of theology fighting with  a venom and bitterness worthy  of thc  third  century!  Lralian   wool   is   being   offcred  now, and at a lower price.  Thus thc fact remains that  Canadian mills are refusing to  buy Canadian wool while United  Stales mills arc taking all lhat  o'l'ers.

X x X  ���������������������������   sr  sr sr  Some time- ago a certain interesting exchange of correspondence took place between a  large mail order house and an  insurance and real estate agent  well-known in a Western town  that il is not ncccsasry to name  here.  Thc insurance man, ahout two  years previously, had sent in an  order to the big catalogue concern for a considerable quantity  of paint. This was his first and  last out-of-town order of such  character, but thc distant firm  in the meantime kept sending  him their hug  or three times  the  insurance  c catalogues two  a year.    One day  man  received  a  firm  letter from the mail-order  which read in part:  "Dear Sir:���������������������������For nearly two  ycars wc have' missed your  name from our list of out-of-  town customers: wc would bc  pleased to have further orders  from   you.   and   to   give   your  your  catalogues  at  as   earfy  a  date as suits your convenience.
