JiVJr. Singer i*  confident that he will have some  30,000 boxes of apples and }0D  cars of field produce- to ship  frojn Grand View Flat this season, and, with the packing house  right at the orchards and fields,  -hc-cstimales---hc=will=be=uble_to.  put the entire crop on the Calgary market in first-class condition.

Out-  of-town people arc invited to use  this station as headquarters  when in Vernon, and telephone  messages will be taken for their-  subject to call. It is felt thai this  station will fill a long-felt .want,  and thc hope is, expressed that  thc public will use thc station to  lhc full extent.  "My brother and' partner in  thc business,".writes Mr. Fernie.  "has. finalty recovered from  wounds received in Francc'anc!  received his discharge. 'He expects to bc here in two weeks  ���������������������������ind I will then bc able to" cover  'lie valley with my  plant." s    ,  lighting  Capt. W. A. Townley and R.  M. Palmer, of Victoria, are at  the head of a Soldier's Settlement committee appointed to  inquiic into the qualifications  of returned soldiers anxious to  get a piece of land on which to  start fanning.' The purpose of  lhis commillcc is lo examine  lhc qualifications of the men so  as lo avoid,-as far as possible,'  men gelling themselves' tied to  land lhal thcy,would not know  how lo work successfully. It is  recognized by the Soldiers' Settlement Board- thai it will be  much easier to find men o'f inexperience anxious to take up  land even if it docs mean thc  taking on.of a debt that thejr  may find difficulty in carrying,  than it will to find land suitable  fcr the men of experience. It  is thc intention, therefore, to do  all that is possible to assist men  who are really qualified to go on  with thc "work of n development  and cultivation with some reas-  ablc- pssiirancc that thcy Avill  not fail or become discouraged  before really getting started.  In connection with this phase*  of lhc question there is also air  expert appointed to inspect all  land lhe.returned men feci .-disposed to buy; and place a value  on  the land.V-Fcr  ibis district  the men arc most fortunate in-  having Mr. J. W. Benzie, the Dominion  inspector  of  Kamloops  to act as appraiser. > Mr .'Benzie,  spent a Tew days in the, district  this vwcek. inspecting lands- for  the Settlement Board-a, Mr. Bcii-  -zic is a  Nycll-known   old-timer,"  and his"thorough' knowledge of  almost cverysq.uare. yard 'ofJ-liis  district? willVprove of inestimable value in placing men "in  right"7 in starting oif the nW  way of life, v       .V  This old and well-tried official  has no inflated ideas as fegajrdk  the value ejthep of'the Jands'or  the improvements' thereon.. He  has tramped - over its gooel a nd  its had/soils too often not to  know their nature and value in  detail. f|e has watched-too long  the ups nnd, downs x������������������f the  pioneer - homesteaders not to  know the pitfalls that might be  looked .for on the trail of the'  prospective homemaker.  "His unexaggcratcd .estimate  of all, things, his unquestioned  i n tegfi ty~andTai tlTf u IncssT iTTtl!^  discharge of the duties which  have been his for ycars past  will -no doubt go far in determining thc action of thc board  on his reports and in thc adjustments cf values between seller  and purchaser of land. ^  ' This phase of lhc question���������������������������  looking into thc qualifications  of the men and inlo thc price  and character of lands offered  for sale���������������������������-is largely a personal  mattery between lhc men them-  splvcs and lhc Settlement Board  and .not one to inquire inlo.  Thc fact of their being in the  district indicates- action being  taken which might lead to important developments.

He soon  walked to his store, however,  and, though there was every indication of partial paratysis, Mr.  McPhcrson continued to 'keep  up and pul on a brave front, lt  was not long, however, until another stroke came.

"Nearly a Hero" is one pf"those comedy mix-  ups with no particular plot, yet as full of plots  a nd "cou n ler-plo Is as a Mexican dog is full of  ileas. It lakes place at the summer home of a  Long Islander during Uic past .Great War, and  pictures what might take place in the home of  anyone when tlie husband is captured in a,ugamb-  ling joint and, being sentenced to three months  in "jail, pretends that he has bcen called lo the  defense of his counlry and lhal hc is serving in  the army in Franco instead of serving a term in  jail, and conies back lo his home in lhc coal of  an army general and represents that hc is the  popular"General William Fuller.

Thc Dramatic Club put on "Nearly a Hero" in  aid of the Returned Soldiers' Monumental Hospital in Armstrong. It proved a financial success  as well as a success in comedy.

Thc leading part in "Nearly a Hero" falls upon  Uie  bogus  .General  Fuller.     Mr-   Batey,  always  good in comedy, was excellent as lhc culprit and  j the returning  herb" general.     Hc  was  well supported by Mr. Dave McNair, the chum who was  great at "fixing things." .

He replied to the  long resolution presented to him last week by  Uic soldiers, saying he would nol step down.  ll was quite clear lhal lhc soldiers did not expect a favorable answer from the Government,  but lhcy felt lhal with public opinion generally  aroused such prcssurc can bc brought to bear on  thc Government thai will hasten an appeal to the  counlry and in the interval that time will have  becn given for consolidating the opposition to the  administration and the formation of an independent party and thc .adoption of a. definite  policy.  "The Gale appointment is only onc of thc many  crimes of the Government," declared Mr. Wm.  McKinslry to thc -Vancouver Province. "Thcrc  \vas the .Geo. E.

The reason' for Ihis regulation of  Uic Paper Controller is that it is the  .practice of some publishers to send  thier     newspaper     until     ordered -*  slopped, and this practice frc-' ,  qucntly means a failure to collect  s_ anything for' subscriptions in arrears, in which case there is'5 a virtual waste of paper. : It is to prevent paper waste that the new regulation has been decided on.  ,   _  - - The manufacture of paper con-r  sumes labor, wood, coal, 3chcmicals~       -  ( and   transportation   facilities,   and  every   ton   of  paper  saved   means  just so much more labor, raw materials,  chemicals,  fuel  and transportation available for urgent war .  needs.

He told us that of thc Caiij  adian hoys returning homc, at least 60 per cci?t*  feci that thev want to come West, and particularly lo British. Columbia. , Our B- C. soldiers carried wilh them to Franc? the spirit of the West;  ihcy breathed it into lhcir very lives and.Jlhe Hvcs.  of the men  thcy came in contact with.      Thcy  let it be known that thcy were men of no mcmi  counlry, and  this spirit spread  to otherfcamps  and produced a desire on thc part of: the. men to  see British Columbia on their return to Canada.  And  of all spots in British  Columbia,  the one  hest known and most frequently talked about, is  the Okanagan Valley.    This returned man ."said  it was his opinion that we at home do not realize  how well and favorably known the. Okanagan is.  Nor do wc appreciate how longingly thousands  of returning hicii arc looking to the Okanagan as  their possible futureAhome,    He says the.

HELPING THE NATION  Thousands of dollars came into lhe Armslrong-  Endci'by dislrict lhis week in interest .cheques  from lhe Dominion Government on Victory  Bonds held by our people. Thcrc is.jusl cause  for lhc spirit of pride which a citizen feels in receiving from his Government an inleresl cheque  on money loaned. One feels doubly sccurc in an  investment of lhis nature. He feels il is like  finding money lo gel this inleresl cheque half-  yearly. While, perhaps there arc nol many individual amounts running high, still, in lhc aggregate lhc community enjoys the.profits on a very  comfortable sum. and all must feci lhe good of il.  In   this connection, wc would  like  lo mention  lhe purchase of War Savings and Thrift vSlamps.  The purchase of these is reallv but an casv wav  to buy a Dominion Government $50 bond.    Thc  Governmcnl i.s eager to sell  these bonds, which  arc jusl as safe as Victory Bonds, and. in order  lo enable even the poorest lo do so,--il has issued  War Savings Stamps which cosl $-1 each, plus an  additional-stamp for each month in which  they  arc purchased aflcr Januarv 1919. Whal lhc Gov-  eminent wauls   the people   lo do is   to keep .oh  buying these stamps.    II is in lhc inleresl ol* every  person. Io do so, because lhis is an easy and profitable means of saving;" while il is in'lhc interest of  lhc Governmcnl lhal this should bc done, because  in lhis way il gets a sum of money-.worth while.  Sel   the   $f>0   bond   as   your   objective,   which  ���������������������������means lhat when one stamp lias been bought  il  will be followed up by lhe purchase of still others  nplil   the objective is readied.  In an address before lhe Canadian Club at Van-,  9puver a few nights ago, Mr. F. B. Stacej% M.P.,  wlio recently came from Ottawa to give his attention  to  the  work  of  the  Soldier  Settlement  Board,  vigorously  attacked, those  holding  land  who*wished to inflate prices for soldier settlers.  After inlying an eloquent tribute to the originals  who stopped the Hun at-Ypres, he declared that  ther^ were some men ih this Province who were  ko'de&d to .every*spirit of-patriotism and so forgetful of the men who were their saviors overseas  and to whom they owed their present existence,  that they would endeavor to sell them lahd> at  more than its actual value.   It was impossible, he  said, to conceive of the greed of such men, adding,  ^so long as the Soldier Settlement Board can help  it,' not onc man in this Province will put a dollar  'oVer the returned men.' "       W  It was to avoid this sort of thing, Mr. Stacey  that 'the" Dominion   Government   had ..appointed   appraisers   who   would   advise   soldiers  purchasing land of its relative value.'" Some land  in-British Columbia, he explained, is dearer at.$10  an ac^c than some land that is sold at'$300 an  acre, thc real price of land being determined at  its.productive value. ������������������  Mr. Stacey said thc Government was not encouraging soldiers to buy out farmers, but rather  to cultivate other lands, for Canada wanted all  the production it could secure during these times-  The Government is also encouraging small holdings and small loans so that the new settler  would not be discouraged. Loans, however, to a  maximum of $7,500 were provided, those securing1 thc maximum loans being experienced agri-  ���������������������������ctilturisls- and.men who were able to show, the  qualification committee that thcy had every reasonable prospect of making a success of' their  venture. Speaking of thc chances ojf success  of a soldier settler, Mr. Stacey asserted that in  the lasl analysis, in farming as in any othcr undertaking, nine-tenths of the whole thing1-depended upon thc man himself. In passing reference to the Oriental situation he stated that thcrc  were 7000 less Chinese in Western Canada today  than there were in 1914, and only 700 more Japanese, which was well within thc Lcmieux agreement. . The reason the*Orientals got the land, he  said, was because thc white men sold it to them.

He argued for the special" training of rural-school  teachers, and deplored the fact that young girls  after' a short training were consistently thrust  upon rural schools,, confronted with situations  Ihey had no training for or experience to, cope  with. In'thc discussion that.followed it became  clear lhat in thc experience of (he teachers.dnc  of-.the chief dillicullies was that of accommodation.

And all because the Big Three���������������������������Britain, France, America���������������������������  will not submit to Italy taking Finnic. Italy is  seeking to satisfv "Italian aspirations." Just as  Gcrmanv wanted to satisfy "German aspirations"  n and against all sense of justice and reason, forced  thc Greal War'upon thc world. Italy is drunk  with victory, and, is basing hcr case on Ibc pact  of London, made in 1915.- Italy, with Britain,  France and America, entered thc Peace Conference pledged against secret compacts. Shc is  apparentlv against secret compacts whicb are not  in tbe inleresl of '-Italian aspirations," but insists  on Ibc carrying oul of secret compacts if tbey arc  in favor of "Italian aspirations." On the strength  of the pact of London���������������������������an agreement as to the  .spoils of war, by wbicb she was bought over���������������������������  and upon Ibc signing of wbicb llaly broke faith  wilh ber German allies and joined the Entente���������������������������  Ilalv now claimes the full price. The question  turns on Ibc validity of lhal secret compacts  thc changed circumstances. It cannol be carried  out, i'or tbe reason il is opposed lo Ibc I'u'sl principle of Ibc fourteen points of  Ibc armistice.  "When   Ibc pact of London  was made," says  thc Vancouver Province, "lhc transfer of Finnic  to Italy .would bave been merely Ibc acquisition  of a port from Ibc enemy.    Austria-Hungary has  lost Fiumc-    Tbe port gees to the Allies in any  case.    Shall il go lo Ibc new Slave nalion or to  Italy.    If the Jugo-Slav nation bad bcen in ex-c  istence at Ibc lime of Ibc pact of London it would  Ihen have claimed Fiumc as the commercial outlet of their counlry.    Italy might or might not  then bave been con len I wilh lhc promisc of the  great Austrian port of Trieste and lhc naval port  of Pola hard by.    11 was onc Ihing also to take  pari of Dalmalia from Austria Hungary and another tiling lo lake il frcm  lhc Dalmatians.    By  Ibc pad of London Russia was lo have Constantinople.   Brilain expected lo bold Ibc Gcrman-col-  --onics  captured by ber arms  and contiguous  to  her possessions.     Brilain  is   likely lo   accept instead a mandate lo administer these possessions  as a trustee I'or the League of Nations.    Neither  Italy nor the  new  stale can   say  lhal -Brilain  is  making any gains oul of lhc new order.    Britain  has financed llaly and Ibc Soulh Slavs with un-  diseriminale    generosity.      Hcr    soldiers-   have  fought in Italy and'in-'Serbia.    Hcr ships have  o kept open lhc road for, lhc supply cf provisions.  Whatever sense  of injustice Italy  or   lhc  Slavs  may.feci thcy have no reason  to bc angry wilh  .   .Great-Brilain.    Even now lhat the parties lo lhc  alliance have so changed lhal fhe London pact is-  im possible   of   fuHlilmenl   in   respect -lo    other  countries, Brilain docs not repudiate it in regard  to Italy- .11 is understood lhat Mr. Lloyd George  is ralher Irving to induce Italy to renounce this  item of lhal treaty in favor of the new comrade  who appears, a member oi' the family of nations,  and has-a claim that could nol have been forsccn  at the time of thc secret treaty."  Jusl now Italians in Borne arc heaping denbun-  cialion upon President Wilson for saying publicly  to the world lhat Italy shall not have Fiumc. Il  is altogether likely lhal the task of saying so has  fallen upon President Wilson, and that hc is  speaking for Britain and France as much as for  America. In face of thc secret compact Britain  could nol say so, nor could France. Therefore,  America bad to speak. It is, as lhc Westminster  Guardian puts it, thc first lest of thc League of  Nations. Italy may squirm, but shc must give in.  ^Aspirations are a tine thing, but become a menace when lhcy havc to bc achieved by riding  rough-shod over thc rights of neighboring states  ;&'_!���������������������������  ���������������������������ahd _?j^  and peoples!  Italy says shc is not afraid to sland out againsl  the world in forcing hcr demands, even to taking  Fiumc by invasion. Italy will havc a second  think before long lhat will take all the wind oul  of thai.

"There's your license to marry Euphemia," he  said to tbe servant that night. "You're as good as  married already, and you owe mc $2."  The darky's face fell. "But, Mass' Tom, Euphemia Wilson ain't de lady I'se gwinc to marry.  Dal wa'n'l no thin' mo'n a little flirtation. Gcor-  giana Thompson, thc la'ndress, is the one I'se  gwinc lo marry."  "Oh, well, John," said the master, amused and  irritated at lhe same time, "there's no harm done-  I'll gel you another license to-morrow, but it will  cost you $2 morc, of course."  The ncxt morning thc darky came out to lhc  carriage a.s it was starling for town and, leaning  confidentially over lhc wheel, said: "Mass' Tom,  you needn't gil mc no udder license; I'll use lhc  one I'se gol.

Both gentlemen  explained fully ancl satisfactorily  , the work of the Ass'n and pointed out in a clear cut way the  drawbacks the Ass'n had to meet  last year owing to a wool embargo and the importation of wool  bought in Australia at 35c. per  pound.  It will be recalled that last  ye.ir independent buyers paid as  .'high as 61 cents per lb for wool.  Evidently this was done to, stop  sheep men from shipping through  their own concern. .-Anyway the  upshot of the whole -thing was  that the Co-operative people get  from 57 to 59 cents per lb for  their wool, ancl many of thelin-  depedent "boyers had to sell  through the - Canadian Cooperative Wool Growers Co. in  Boston, at 54cents per lb., less A  per cent, commission. This  was wool they had bought at  6lc. in B.C.  It is not anticpated that wool  will be as high a price this year,  but- will yet' be very remunerative. All the Growers present  at the meeting took shares in  the company and promised to  ship their wool through the concern this year.
