One  Ihing seems certain, and lhat is  that wc havc yel to dismiss  Irom our minds thoughts of thc  old boom prices and gel down lo  a basis on which a prospective  purchaser, can buy - and make  a living oil thc land. No price  over and above this is cither fair  or reasonable, and what is more,  any price above the fair thing  will bc tabooed by thc soldier.  In" spite of the bad advertising  our prices get for us in Vancouver , soldiers are nevertheless  finding their way here, and wc  intend this article in the nature  of an appeal for all who havc  properties for sale to list them  at thc City Hall at reasonable'  figures in order that visitors  may quickly find suitable locations and. those wishing to sell  may do so. Soldiers for lhc land  arc'unlimited,; our land and climate arc riglft.- The only re-  .maining item necessary is a reasonable mindedncs's on lhc pari  of;,lhc landowners, expressed in  .a reasonable -price and then,  '���������������������������without doubt, we may expect a  large influx of scttlcrs~lo 4:hc dis-v  trict. .     ..- -.-    ���������������������������  V; Each   satisfied ��������������������������� purchaser ;,is  the finest possible advertisement  ��������������������������� for' the town, for soldiers are  quick to find fair dealers.

'.-,  LAND-HUNGRY SOLDIERS  Beseiging Settlement Board���������������������������  At Least Twenty-Five to Locate near Armstrong  The Vancouver Province  stales that land-hungry returned  soldiers are beseiging the Settlement Board ollices these days.  Opened on February 22, already  morc lhan 1,000 applications  havc been made to thc boardi by  veterans, of which 500 havc  bcen granted so far. Eight hundred men havc appeared before  lhc qualification board and 150  havc so far becn located on the  land. . In addition lo this fifty  men arc in training al various  places throughout thc Province.  cThcy will eventually qualify for  government assistance to go into farming.  There appears to bc no end to  thc number of applicants for  land and daily the "office is  crowded. While the majority of  the men" arc from British Columbia, quite a number from  other parts .of thc Dominion are  also applying.  Captain L. F. Burrows, M. C.,  who is in charge of the office,  says hc expects to see thousands  of men settled in British Columbia by thc federal government's  plan. There is no doubt, he continued, that thc plan is working  out successfully and is going to  produce wonderful results. '_>>���������������������������-  ~ "The class of men who arc go-,  nig on thc land," thc captain dc-.  clarcdv "arc the bes't kind' pf  men one would wish for settlers  in British --Columbia. They /are  all experienced farmers, for tlie  board will'only deal with- men  of-experience, and they are keeni  to get.ahead: _ They.realize the.  task Ihey have undertaken and  are confident of their ability to  make good."1     - ���������������������������-        7  Besides placing men at different'points in thc province to-get  experience in agricultural \vork  before becoming eligible for  laijd, the hoard has been recently' granted the use of the Agassiz Experimental Farm for-students. Accommodation is being provided for, a large number  of veterans. ���������������������������  As a result of the advertising  placed in a^ number of British  Columbia newspapers a few:  weejes ago, the hoard has now  a large number of listings from  people who are willing to^seJJ  land to the government for soj-  dicr__sctflenjent._ _The_ pr_6spet>  live settler therefore bas a wide  range, both as regards locality  and quality, from "which to  select. IVJen who wish to personally inspect properties before  buying are given the advantage  of a one-cent fare to any part of  the Province.  Men wishing to take up land  arc reminded that thcy must  furnish 10 per cent of thc  amount advanced. When thc  land settlement plan was first  pul into effect this 10 per cent  was not insisted on. Thc result  was lhat in certain portions of  the Dominion, consciously or  unconsciously, advantage was  taken of this, some men selling  off thc stock ancl equipment  that had been purchased with  money advanced by the government and disappearing from the  communities in which they had  settled. Men granted loans now  must have 10 per cent of the  amount asked in cash. Thc government will make a net maximum advance of $7,500. So  far the average amount asked  by veterans is $4,000.  SATISFACTORY INCREASE  Greater Volume, of Business  Done by O. U. G. and Operating Costs Reduced  According to the financial  statement of the O.U.G. thc total sales for the year 1918  amounted to $1,587,864.36 made  up as follows: on behalf,, of local organizations: (>  Fruit    '...$1,083,499.48  Vegetables   ....$   116,971.36  majdng a total of $1,200,470.84  On behalf of unaffiliated  associations   ...$ 75,972,29  .Fruit and Vegetables  purchased   ....    86,223.15  Supplies for use of local  associations- ... 225,198.08.

Tlie head office and selling expenses for doing $1,117,748.95  were $52,562.19; and the head  office and selling expenses for  $1,587,864.36 were $53,737.70;  so-while thc business increased  from $1,063,000.00, to $1/587,-  000J00, or a total increase of  $524,000.00 from ."the year 1916  to'thc end of the yeas 1918, still  the- head office and selling ex-  .penses instead of increasing,-decreased from $63,140.28 to"  $53,737.70,. or, a decrease of $9,.-  402.58,-^plainly- demonstrating  that the .policy-of the Company  has been a sound one and pro-  cliictivc of the'best result,,which  you -.will'agree with us reflects  the greatest credit on the?managers and'directors ��������������������������� an Jin-  crease of over 50 per cent in the  volume of business done, and  a, decrease in the -selling and  bead office expenses of- Jlo per  cent, say tlie official auditors.  These figures speak volumes^  '' ;Jn closing his annual report,  President Mutrie said: The several Pocajs have all had their  annual meetings, and we are  gratified to be able to say that  a spirit of harmony is very evident throughout the organization.

"Your dircctors-again wish to  place on record lhcir appreciation of the careful and efficient  management of thc work of the  organization by General .Manager McDowall, and the loyal  co-operation of the staff-and also thc local Managers. Mr. McDowall has been identified with  thc -co-operative movement  since the*time of its inception  and those who have been on the  Board from year to year know  that his whole heart is in the  work. The-work of the directors is largely confined to matters of policy, the carrying out  of which must rest largely with  thc local manager, and the  Rowing confidence noticeable  throughout every local in thc  Valley is the-best evidence that  the loyal and effective service  which he has always given to  the organization is bearing fruit  and is appreciated by the _G.row-  ENDERBY BOARD OF TRADE  Officers Elected and Work of  Season Started under Favorable Circumstances  Thc annual meeting of thc  Enderby Board of Trade was  held in the city hall last Thursday evening.

Unless thc people-of Armstrong and thc Spallumcheen vote "no" on the proposition, a twelve-  room modern school. building will bc erected in  Armstrong within the next year.  Mayor Wright received word this week from  ������������������|Dr. K. C. McDonald, M.P.P., that the Provincial  |Government  has  decided   to  increase   the  grant  |Government  has  decided   to  increase   the  grant  from 30-70 to 50-50, which will mean the erection of thc consolidated school at a much less cost  jto the town and district'than under the early fig-  lures given. ':-���������������������������-*���������������������������   -  This is an unusually high grant, and is the  result of the combined efforts of the local and  municipal school boards and Dr. MacDonald, who  have not slackened an inch in impressing upon  y jlhe Department the absolute need ol such a granl  he ing made.  This means lhal lhe ratepayers of Ann slrong  id lhc Spallumcliccn municipality will be called  [upon   to   vole   on   a   debenture   bylaw   for  25%  jeach of thc amouni finally decided upon as necessary  I'or  lhe  erection   of  the  building.     It   is  understood this will lake place as early as practicable in order to have the mailer finally settled  and work started as soon as possible.  Already  the districl and  lown  have  had con-  sidcrabJe experience in -working together on educational lines.    Somc 80 to 100 school children  daily attend the Armstrong schools from the outlying district. And once a week the children from  all   lhc small schools in  thc municipality attend  the    Domestic   Science   and.. Manual    Training  classes.    It will therefore bc an  easy matter,, to  get together on   this larger issue, the successful  handling  of  which   will  mean   so  much   to   lhe  district.  Methods of business havc changed and compc-  lilion isso much keener that the boys and girls  of loday, who arc lo bc thc business men and women of tomorrow, must have a decidedly deeper,  broader and more liberal education than their fathers.   Thc sickle and lhc cradle have given way  to the binder; the ox team has been replaced by  lhc gas engine, and almost every device of fifty  years ago has been given over to morc modern  methods.    Tlie railroads  havc greatly modified  and changed conditions.    Standards of living arc  entirely different.   The simplicity and barrenness  of yesterday has given place to the comfort and  plenty of today.   There is, in fact, but little left of  the "old times."   Thcincreasc in population and  the rapid rise in land values have rendered imperative a more intensive form of tillage.   Farming is no longer merely a matter of industry and  muscle, but of thought and study.  Everything relative to the farm and farming  has improved and hence it is necessary "that the  farmers'.children should receive an education,  and. under conditions that will fit them to properly carry on their work of the future. The proper  education of the boys and girls of the rural communities etui not be neglected without bringing  ruin on these communities, ff these advantages  are not provided they will drift away into other  callings.  On tbe;other bancj, if schools of the right Hind  arc provided and equipped and suitable facilities  furnished so that all may avail themselves of the  educational opportunities* these children wi|| remain at home on the farms to receive their general education and afterward when they come to  ta|ce charge of affairs will prove towers of  strength to the rural communities on account of  their education.' ���������������������������  The. old-time schools as remembered by many  of us are gone for ever. The large attendance, the  male teacher, the pupils running from six to  twenty-one years of age, are things of the past.  In their place is thc small school of half a dozen  or so of^small children, and perhaps a young inex  pT^icnc'ed"girriirchargc" =-���������������������������   ���������������������������= ��������������������������� - ���������������������������  pupil.  The following figures further show that many  of the schools are far too small. There were two  schools operated 'with an average attendance for  thc year of 2 or less; 7 with an average between  2 and 3; 12 with an average between 5*and 6, and  52 with an average between-6 and 7.  In marked- contrast with these figures are those  for the city of Winnipeg, where the cost per pupil was $34, and this included a*.full*'���������������������������collegiate  course, together with maniuVl training and domestic science for children in lhc grades, and school  buildings as fine as any in Canada. J  But however important the financial side is, it  is not lhe niost important.   With lhe small school  there  can  be but  poor  classification-'-and   there  certainly can be no life and spirit in  the work.-  Thcrc is also bul very little incentive lo lhe children  or  lhe  teacher  lo do  Iheir besl.    There is  greal inspiration and incentive in numbers.    To  add to lhis weakness of small enrolment and average lhere is lhal of irregularity which practically  blocks every cll'orl made toward steady progress  in the school.   The smallness and irregularity are  frequently caused  by  nol  lack of desire on   lhc  part of parents lodiavc their children receive an  adequate education, bul rather on account of the  difficulties experienced by children  on  reaching  school, such as long distances, inclement weather,  bad roads and dangers of various kinds thai arc  ���������������������������ipl to befall small children, especially on  their  lonely  walks   lo   and   from   school.     Thc  small  school lias also a deterrent elfccl on older children  who have no desire to attend a school where their  is  no  companionship  of. their own   -Sge.   ..Thus  many children refuse lo a I lend school at thc very  igc when they mosl need lhc education ahd training, lhat is from 1-1 lo 1G.

Today paranoca is rampant tbe world over. For'  four years the newspapers and other periodicals  have carried on a propaganda of hate in every  country engaged in the great world war. Hatred  has been bred into the people. "Thc enemy" has  been pictured as a loathsome thing to bc despised.  In Entente countries the Hun has becn thc enemy;  in Central Europe our own country has been pictured as something despicable. .--'  It is part of thc great war game to make friends  bate each other and breed suspicion ancl distrust  in llie minds of all. And our propagandists, Jlike  those of enemy0countries, did their work only loo  well. -,   -  It will take months, if not ycars, to undo lhc  work of thc hate propaganda. And some of our  newspapers arc still keeping at it. .,  m  In the meantime every country and every com-  :jnunity   is  holding   thc  thought  that  feeds   the  malady. .- .        -. .    -  Somebody has. said that wc believe things first  iind look for proof later, ami when the idea"is"  once fixed in a man's mind that someone has it  in for himreasons light as air-are tb hinvconfiriiH  ation strong as Holy Writ.     . . ���������������������������'"''.'.-:  Incipient paranoca, that which thc world and  every liillc and big community is suffering today,  manifests itself in suspicion, distrust and jealousy.

Charlan, an expert on tobacco growing,  some time ago visited lhc Okanagan and reported  as follows to lhe Dominion government. Hisre-  port will bc of particular interest to anyone impressed by thc possibilities of developing the industry here.   He says:  "There is practically only onc centre of tobacco  culture, thc Okanagan valley and chiefly Kelowna, wherc this branch of farming is still quite  new.    Until 1909 thc growers were few in number, and the production of tobacco in Kelowna  hardly exceeded1 40,000 or 50,000 pounds; a larger area was planted in 1910, but even then thc  total land in tobacco was not more than 70 or 75  acres.    This is quite insufficient considering the  quality of Kelowna tobacco and its well deserved  reputation, and we may expect to see the total  amount of tobacco produc.-���������������������������  len  limes as large  at an early date.  "Possibly, 4obacco growing has bcen tried in  other parts of British Columbia, bul none of  these trials was heard of till 1910. In 1893-94 un  experiment was started at the Dominion Experimental Farm, at Agassiz, but this experiment  was not rcsuMQ4.. although lhc results were said  to bc encouraging by the experts to whom  the  -������������������������������������������������������oducts were submitted/    "     ���������������������������     , .    .  i     ���������������������������.--_.-- .... .-.        ���������������������������, t -.^    0 .������������������������������������������������������������������������   .������������������������������������������������������-.--  ;"In 1910 there was a marked tendency in favor  of tobacco growing in British Columbia. Numerous applications for seeds were received from  different partsJJof the province by thc tobacco division, and. a careful experiment was undertaken  by a large company "The, British Columbia Horticultural Estate, .Limited," of Walhachiif, B- C.  This experiment, if continued, might bring about  a rapid increase in the production of tobacco in  thc province. The movement is not likely to stop  and it may be assumed tbat, at an early date, in  all parls of the province w lie re good agricullural  lands of sufficient size arc. to bc found, tobacco  will be one of the main crops.  .

Thus  there will be two kinds of tobacco of a very different type, lhat grown on irrigated land and lhc  other on   non-irrigated  land.  '"However, until lhc present lime,* tobacco  growing was practically limited lo the Kelowna  valley (irrigated pari) and only 'irrigated' tobacco was produced. Soon, however, new centres will open in non-irrigated districts, and then  il will be possible lo compare Ihe two products so  different in principle.  "The soils of lhe Okanagan Valley which have  been selected for tobacco growing consist of a  ralher lighl colored grayish loam, light and deep.  containing ;i hirge proportion of organic mailer,  and wilh a subsoil generally of a very porous nature.  "Heavier soils have, al times, been utilized for  tobacco culture and, naturally, the product obtained has a stronger taste. The presence of  white alkali is nol considered as an objection, unless il is in such proportion "lhat thc consistency  of the soil is affected; it is a fact that the besl  burning tobaccos are grown on alkali lands. Unfortunately, while fermenting, such tobaccos .become covered with" a while c'fVreseence which,  although it does not injure the quality of the product, detracts from its appearance und may render the sale of tobacco leaf di hi full when dealing  wilh manufacturers who are wA aware pf lhis  peculiarity.  "Tohacco has also been grown on bench land,  in lhc immediate vicinilv of Kelowna.    The pro-  should be stated, however, that this tobacco was  grown by inexperienced farmers. Probably ir-  rigaion was carried to an excess, topping was  done a little too low (that is to say thc number  of leaves left on the plant was too small) and harvesting a little too late. Such mistakes can be  easily avoided, and it cannot bc said, at present,  that the benches of Kelowna arc unfit for tobacco  growing. At first sight, however, lhc soils of the  valley appear lo bc preferable. But the proximity of thc lake is not without objections. Tlie  ground waler is at a shallow depth in the poms  subsoil of thc Kelowna valley and' irrigation must  be pracliscd with caution, or else the effect will  be more injurious than useful, on account of the  imperfect drying of thc surface soil and the top  part of thc subsoil.  "On account of thc mild climate of tliis. province, Brilish Columbia growers do not have to go  to thc.expcnsc of making hotbeds as must Quebec  and sometimes  Ontario growers.    Even  glazed  sashes can be done away with, although they may  be useful at times to stimulate growth- of late  seedlings.   A good frame with 12 x 1 in. boards  sunk in the ground to the depth of four or five  inches and covered with a light"cotton cover is  all that is required in Okanagan to protect the  young seedlings against severe weather and the  sudden changes of temperature tliat may occur  during the first part of the spring.    Provisions  should be made for thc draining away of rain  water.   The cotton cover may bc set up as a tent,  with sloping sides held up at the central part of  thc bed with a longtitudinal bar which is= supported by posts a few inches above the level of  the frame, or, again, the frames may bc given a  slope of about onc inch per foot in the same  direction as thc exposure of the beds.    The best  exposure is south or southeast, in a'place sheltered from the cold winds, but not. shaded. -  > .:  "A layer of vegetable earth of mold from four  to five, inches thick,-is quite sufficient,    Where  vegetable earth cantiot be had in sufficient quantity, a bed of good light soil, manured the .previous year or sprinkled with liquid manure^ may  be made and covered with a thin layer* of sifted  vegetable earth> fVom one to two inches in thickness.   It is important that liquid manure sprinklings, which ore sometimes used to fertilize the  soil, should be done before tbe beginning of winter..   In till cases, tbe soil should be turned over  with a shovel as often "as possible.   The shoveling  of the soil is a-very cheap preventative remedy  against mould or-various diseases that would  otherwise appear later oil the beds and check lhc  growth of. the young seedlings.   It will be all thc  more efficient if il is done iu cold ancl dry weather  before the earth freezes up." ������������������  Wide beds should be avoided.   Thcy may bc as  long as thc grower requires and as the place will  permit,  but   lhe  width  should be such  that all  hot," less' so  than parts of the bed may be easily reached.   The size  of bed shuggeslcd by Mr. Holman is .3 x 108 feet,  which if properly sown will nol require any thinning. ��������������������������� Thc surroundings of lhc beds should hc  kept as clean as possible and all weeds carefully  des I roved.

J4cense No. 9-3409  There are three brood diseases that are of importance to the beekeeper, and two of them are  responsible for very-heavy losses every year-;  Sacbrood is an infectious disease but transient  in character. It may be serious enough at time������������������  to weaken a colony considerably, but seldom destroys it completely; It appeas in the apiaiy during lhe spring and early part of the summer, but  cases may be found at any time during the season. The symptoms are-irregular brood and punctured cappings; the affected larvae arc usually  dark grey lo almost black in color and are found  lying stretched out on thc lower wall of the cell  wilh .the head turned up pointing to thc upper  wall of the cell at the entrance. The body wall of  thc diseased larvae ebcomes toughened while the  contents of the body are somewhat watery and  granular; the whole can bc lifted frcm the cell intact. Thcrc. is no definite treatment for this disease,' but the beekeeper who keeps his colonics at  the maximum strength and uses only young vigorous queens need not fear it.  European* foulbrood is a .highly infectious disease and spreads very rapidly through an apiary,  causing very heavy losses especially among black  bees and hybrids. The larvae usually die before  being capped over, while slill curled in thc cell.  Thc color of the affected larvae changes frcm a  glistening white to a light yellowing or greyish  tint, later turning darker and the larvae seltles  lo lhc base of thc cell in a shapeless mass, finally  drying to a dark detachable scale, which is removed by the bees. This disease may appear at  any time during thc season, bul is mostly prevalent during the spring and early summer. European foulbrood is essentially a "weak colony"  disease and the beekeeper who uses only young  vigorous Italian queens and keeps his colonics  strong need not fear it:  American foulbrood doc's not spread through  an apiary as quickly as docs European foulbrood,  but it is harder tp combat. The larvae usually die  after being capped over and the first sign the  beekeeper usually has of its presence is a number  of dark, sunken cappings scattered among the  healthy brood. - Sometimes these cappings may  bc perforated. If the capping is removed', a "dark  chocolate-colored mass wilbbe found lying on the  lower side of,the cell. s If a wooden toothpick or  something similar is inserted "into the, diseased  larvae,and given one or two turns and then withdrawn, the mass will be found to "rope out" to  one-or more inches before breaking. This is the  chief characteristic of this disease -~. The only  treatment advocated for American foulbrood is  to shake the bees out on to starters in a clean hive  and three days later to remove the starters and  giye full sheets of foundation. The old-hives  should be disinfected, the combs rendered to wax  for: foundation and the frames destroyed..- The  honey is safe for hunian consumption but.must  not bcJ placed whetj������������������;.the^^efc:have^ access to;it.  iThis treatment should be given during a honey  flow; if;iiot\tife biees>will n^ed ^lailyfeeding.,Ettr-  details of -these-diseases arid 'their treatment will  pe found in Bulletin No. 26, Second Series,: which,  can.he obtained free by applying to the Centra)  Experiment! Farm, Ottawa  Where growers of tomatoes have a suitable  place for starting plants it is recommended that  d\ey grow their own pstock. By careful selection from individual plants from year to year a  variety may be much improved from' the standpoint of earliness, uniformity, and-productiveness.  When sown in greenhouses, in a*'sulmy window,  ir in a hotbed the seed should be sown in boxej-  or Hals containing lhree or four inches of soil.  The seed is usually sown in rows about four  inches apart from one-quarter to one-half inch  deep, the soil firmly pressed down with the hand  and made moist but not wet. When the rough  leaves appear the little plants are transplanted to  other flats cr hot-beds about two inches apart  each way. "Further transplanting to about six  inches apart is recommended as soon as the plant*  commence lo crowd"each other. This information  is taken from Pamphlet No. 22 of the Central  Experimental Farm which is available from tne  Publications Branch of thc Department cf Agricullurc al Ottawa.. The pamphlet deals noLonly  wilh tomato culture, but mushroom culture and  the forcing of rhubarb during the winter. The  soil and planting of tomatoes are fully described  as well as treatment for diseases, training lo the  centre stem and ether useful information.

Hereafter returned soldiers destined for Kamloops will bc demobilized at Revelstoke, where a  station has been instituted by the federal government.  Every farmer and every artisan should bear in  mind that thc home merchant and home business  man arc absolutely necessary for the development  of thc town or district.  Thrift strengthens a nation just as it gives  reserve power to the individual, so thai its,hene-"  Pts are far-reaching. Every foliar savet| hecomes  capital which can stimulate further production  qn<J earn interest for its owner. An Ottawa dispatch states that ho more Victory-loans will he  floated by the Government^ Therefore,-the War  Savings. Stamp plan will prohahly he the only  direct borrowing scheme the Governmcnl will  rely upon to meet further war needs during the  demobilization period.. This plan affords an opportunity for everyone to hear some-share in  liquidating the costs of tbewar, and at Jhe same  time^to^mal^risystcl^  investment of savings, no matter how small they  may be. If everyone will <Jo his or her share,  Canada's war costs will prove not so much a  burden as a blessing. On the other hand, if we  fail to produce more, and if we neglect to save  more, the burden of war costs may become exceedingly heavy and prosperity may lie strangled.  "A good pull, n long pull and a pull altogether"  is the secret of national success, and also of individual prosperity. "Don't Stop Saving" is a  motto which may be well adopted by the Canadian people for the present and coming generations Jn thc purchase cf War Saving Stamps  the people arc not only offered an opportunity of  acquiring thc habit" of thrift, but can contribute  in their own way to the upbuilding of our Dominion.
