The  soil ranges irom a hjuvy-'cJa\  lo a gravely clay loam, and is  timbered with cedar and fir,  with birch," maple and willow  underbrush.*..  Going oyer the old road you  pass R. Salt's farm on the left,  a fine bay ranch, producing  large crops each year. Ncxt you  come to the M. Salt homestead,  also growing hay; the crop on  this place averages two ton to  the acre this year. This place  was bought by-Lawson Stroulger last year-  Next you can see the Frank  Russel homestead, on the side of  the mountain. This properly  has been somewhat neglected, as  the owner has been overseas for  two or three years, and has not  yel returned.  Next, on the right, is Lawson  "Stroulgcr's   homestead,   a .fine  farm, with between twenty-five  and  thirty acres under cultivation.  ^ G.S towards is "doing well, lie  lias about sixteen acres under  cultivation.     .,. ���������������������������.  E. Schineller has an ideal place  for poultry, especially ducks and  geese, as be has a.*nice- lillle. lake  near his buildings.  Roy Lidslone is the next  homesteader on this road- He  has a fine place for growing bay,  having a Held lhi-> year which  produced nearly three Ions lo  the acre.  T. W. Lielslor.c and his two  sons, Jim nnd Aribur, each have  a quarter seclion ol' fine land  and eacb bus "in the neighborhood of fifteen acres under cultivation.  iJ. Bradsbaw also has a good  homestead, with aboul liftccn  ���������������������������jcres in crop.  Now, we will go on lo the new  governmcnl road, lo William  Bailey's place. He has only seven  or eight acres in crop.  William and l\. Baldwin have  a quarter seclion between them.  Tbey havc aboul twenty acres  under cultivation.  were lost to .Vancouver at Vancouver in 1913. The boys were  seriously handicapped on that  occasion as they might as well  have played ten nten against  twelve.  This time the local boys expect lo havc the advantage as  liie games will be held on their  own grounds and'.before their  own crowd.  The local team lias adopted  lhc coast system of attack and  defence and the struggle should  be an 'interesting one.   ���������������������������  FIRE FIEND BUSY  Miles of Standing Timber Destroyed and Settlers' Houses  Surrounded.

Nexl you come to Jesse Tom-  kiiison's homestead, with its fine  young orchard of 150 trees, and  small fruit, and a nice garden.  This Place is very suitable for  fruit, as it slopes to. the south  and cast.  Robert Stoward's farm is-thc  next,    with    about    twenty-five  acres in crop.   He is in the dairy  "business in a small way.  F. Dysart bas a very nice  place, will some sixteen "acres  under cultivation.

There arc also several other  homesteaders,- in ..Ibis district,  and olher land is still available  for homeslcading. We also havc  a school, which lho=soltlcrs buill  last year, and which will bc on  the new road when it is completed, whicli, wc houe, will bc  in lhc near future.  Mr. W. E. Chappie of Knob  Hill is supplying the C. P. R.  News Service with assorted ripe  fruits in season. The fruit is  pul up in a neat cartoon which  shows that the contents of the  cartoons arc grown at Armstrong in the-Okanagan Valley,  .���������������������������"m! also bears the name of Mr.  Chappie as the packer of this  high-grade fruit, which is all locally grown with the exception  of lhe peaches and - apricots  which arc obtained at Penticton. These cartoons are  placed onfall daily trains cast  and west of Sicamous and are  sold by news agents on the  trains from Vancouver to Winnipeg.  This is splendid advertising  for our- district as thc fruit is  of lhc best grade obtainable, as  il is nearly all tree ripened and  therefore has the natural taste  ami color so essential for good  I'ruil.  Shipments of this grade of  fruil made daily from your  home town and reaching people  over such a wide territory is  bound' to prove itself a booster.  Crop Competition.

He is  employed by thc Educational Department to  travel.over Canaeia���������������������������or those portions of Canada  where the consolidation of schools is not well  establisheel or cstablisbeel at till���������������������������to explain the  system and to tell bow greatly successful it has  proved in all parts of the Unijeel Slates- Prtif.  Arp is an expert on School Consolidation. Especially in the state he comes from, wherc thcy  have to meel climatic conditions more severe  than anything we have in .lhc Okanagan, -he  claims lor school ceinsolielation advantages never  thought of under the old system and which coulel  not'have been possible.  Not only are tbe school children given a higher  standard of education under the modern system.  but thcy arc better taken care of morally and  physically, and gain a more practical training.  In "Dakota anel other western states Central  Schools are erecteel wherever needed. A building of magnificent proportions for the district  :to be covereel is erecteel���������������������������often at a point isolateel  and alone far removed from tiny established settlement. These buildings arc equipped -with  every modern improvement, and, in connection  ���������������������������with the building a residence isoprovided for the  accommodation of the janitor, who is a high-  salaried oflicial whose duties embrace-morc than  is generally understood to attach to-such an ollice.  They teach tbe children to work with .the hands  as well as the head. Thc domestic science, agricultural anel manual training courses arc made  most practical. What is cooked in thc ekimestie  science department is sprcael upon tbe lunch  tables for the children lo cat, and much of what  j* raised in the school garden goes into the cooking, ant} from the manual training department  comes much of thc furnishings for thc other  rooms.  Tlie schools tire more like colleges, with this  exception that the children are taught to" provide  for their needs themselves.  Prof. Arp said in his talks here that any countrv* which haeT fought so heroically tis Canada  had done in the cause of democracy was not doing  itself iustice if il failed to make use of the highest educational facilities���������������������������facilities that would  develop men and women capable of carrying forward Dcnmcracy's banner lifted high unto all  the world.  SHORT-SIGHTED POLICY.  Lack of telephone connectiein witb Mabel  Lake Valley lumber camps anel with the,.headquarters of the fire wardens eif that territory has  undoubtedly cost lhc govern ment untold thous-  n������������������KlsVnVire^l<)S.scs^\vitliiii-ilie--pa.st--nionlhf====^l:hc-  inethoel of hanelling this (irt^ warden business  which is in vogue i.s loo slow to anything more  than tease a lorest fire. However faithful the  deputy fire warelen may be, anel however energetically he may fight a lire, he cannot get over  the field equippeel as he is with a_ slo\v-going  horse, and bc on the job earlv enough in lhe life  of a lire te������������������ elVeclually light it."  No matter what the cost the Government-would  be ahead if it established a long elistancc telephone line lo Mabel Lake. Ask Ihe lire wardens  themselves; ask lhe beiys who are. so faithfully  fighting lhc fhes at Ihis moment; ask anyone who  knows the time it lakes to g>-t a message by  courier lo Knderby or lo equip a force of firefighters tmd get them on llie .ground. Frequently  hours are losl���������������������������and Ihe I'uvs burn on.  An epoch-making incidcnl has jusl taken pit  in  France.    The  General   Federation  of  Lai  and the Socialist Party have united for political  and industrial'action.  This seems lo be thc common practice of labor  organizations the world over, ll points to the  coining of a politica.1 movement the likes of  which the world has nol yet seen. Labor leaders  ane! others���������������������������men assoeiatcel wilh farmers' organ-,  izalions. etc.���������������������������have discovereel since lhe war ccas-  eel lhal the cry of "co-operation", "brotherly love"  "(he deeper felloAv-fccling," etc., whicb prevailed  during thc war period between capital and labor  anel capital and the producer, faded away into  thin mist as soon as the lighting ccaseel, and thc  olel elominccring spirit of industrial, financial  anel political leaders again came inlo evidence.   '  By strikes anel walkouts labor is attempting  to hold its own againsl what it appears to believe  is the encroachment of capital upon labor's rights.  Thcy arc winning in somc instances and losing  in others. And all the while thc combination of  capital and political anel inelustrial interests becomes stronger anel more overbearing. To meet  this combination there has arisen the demand  for a cleiscr knitting for political action of labor  anel producers organizations. Already in Canada  wc have the labor anel farmers organization combining under one party head for political action.  Sooner or later they will be joineel by thc Great  War Veterans, and out of this combination there  will arise a political powcr greater than either of  tbe olel political parties or both' of them coin-  bincel.  Political leaders seem lo be blind to what is  transpiring, or are lcel away by an over-confidence  in their ability to stem thc tiele when thcy desire.  A similar movement is on foot in France. Anel  so the co-operative movemenl' is developing in  Great Britain. The great trade union movement  in Britain, wilh its 5.000,000 members,-litis decided to join forces Avith the Union of British  Co-operative Societies, with a membership of  about 4,000,000 in order to dominate production,  consumption and elistribulion in Britain.  This amalgamation will represent lhc greatest  business combination in history. It will dwarf,  in power if not in funds, the gigantic Fedora ton  of British Industries, with its capital of $20,000,-  000.000..  The new combination is organized to fight such  organizations as the Brilish Federation. In its  international aspect thc combined trade union  and co-operative movements will bc the greatest  cnemy'bf "big business" interests throughout the  world.  In Britain alone the combined unions woulel  include nearly three-quarters of-the inhabitants.  If tbe organizers have their way,, it, will bc invincible in the industrial fielel.  It is estimated,that, aflcr allowing for overlapping, of membership, tbe combined "movements  control 7.000,000 adult-members. Close on 7.000,-  000 families would support the trust, and each of  these families would include oh an average two  adults and three children. "*"    '  "  A joint advisory council of co-operators and  trade unions has been constituted fo draw.up ii  plan of campaign for the new organization. -  "In the meantime thc stale is rapidly drifting  towards bankruptcy anel starvation. In moments  of great difficulty and danger the Prime Minster  is sent to negotiations consisting of blank surrender if there is powcr enough behind the agitators.  Unless avc get back to the complete .supremacy  of parliament and to government by a cabinet,  faced by a strong and critical opposition, avc can  not possibly settle tbe immense problems upon  which our future life depends.  "The public are getting sick anel tired of the  present state of affairs brought about by the futile incapacity of thc present coalition. It really  docs not matter wind political party is returned  lo poAver, as long as the supremacy of parliament  is secured on thc e>lel anel sound lines of govcrtl-  ment and opposition."  Wc have received a letter  written by an Englishman in  Harbin (Manchuria), says the  London Daily "Herald," to a  relative in London, from which  avc publish the following striking passages:  "Here in Siberia and in all  piaccs connected Avith the Siberian government it is Avorse  than in the time of the Czar.  People here are, hung and shot  simply for"saying one Avord and  tbe Avorst of it is that Ave know  that tliey would not have the  poAver to do such things if it  were not for .the help that the  Allies" give'them.  "Ninety per cent, of thc bloodshed in this present civil Avar in  Russia is due to the interference  of the Allies, anel the hatred  against them is terrible- The  Allied governments toltl the natives that they came to Russia  to make order in the lanel. Oh,  my God, Avhat an order they  have made!  "They have put into power  and arc helping a government  that is worse than thc old Czar's.  With thc consent of the Aliics,  the Japanese bave overrun Siberia, anel tire burning the villages and killing tbe people all  over the place. The "yelloAv  terror" has been let loose againsl  the white races in Siberia.   ���������������������������  "Meanwhile the Russian Avorkers here arc not sleeping. Thc  old Nihilist terror is being revived. Bombs are already being  thrown right and left, some .successful, others nol. Large bands  of men havc been formed; some  of them arc even led by women.

Unless all indications fail, the people of Canada have had more than eneuigli of Union Gov-  ernment. Right or Avrong. tbey arc elelermined  to liave a change. Whal tliis change will bc is  very much in doubt.  Canaeia bas some very goexl men as members  of the Union Governmcnl. Premier Borden bas  proved his metal in many ways. Hc bas won  the -confidence of tbe Canadian people. But be  has a following���������������������������government members chosen  lor political reasons���������������������������who arc as weak as the}'  arc self-seeking. .  A similar feeling i.s prevalenl in Canada as  prevails in Knglnnel with regnrel to I'nioii Government- Lore!

C. and the Farmers' Inslilules is in any  way jeopardized or retarded because there is  really no necessity or reason for il. The little  differences Avhich invariably exist, more or less,  in all organizations are to be expected but should  not be perm it led to seriously interfere with the  movement now on foot. A.s a matter f fact, thc  only real difference, tis far as wc can learn, be-  |wee:n the lwe> organizations in tpicstion is that  one i.s unelersleieiel to bc more en- less under tbe  influence of the governmcnl, whilst the either is  strictly independent. What of il? It i.s generally  conceded loday lhal organiznlions wilh "strings"  arc more or less hampered in lhcir work, such  strings often proving more detrimental lhan useful. If such be the case then lhc course lo aelopt  i.s very clear anel leaves ne> alternative lei pursue.  There seems tei be an honest elcsirc on the part  of tbe members of beith organizations' lo "get  together" on the propeisilion anel for Ibis reason  avc Avant to see every cll'ort bent in this direction.  Neither have anlhing to lose, Avhi.lst both have  much to gain by carrying through the amalgamation. Iu the event of Ibis being done then we  presume that Avhen'it comes to electing lhc first  board of-directors for the new Union llial each  of the twei organizations amalgamating Avill.be  given an eepiaLrcprcseiilaliou on such boarel. Wc  suggest.this because it will provc'lbe mosteffect-  ive way of -disarming criticism when lhe details  in 'connection with the new Union constitution arc  being weirkeel out- This may seem ti hilling matter in itself but it should'be borne in mind because it may easily prove the means of saving  much unnecessary vexatious trouble a.s well as  misunderstanding in the future.  Il has been stated'that a joint meeting of the  V.o organizations iu this district' will he.- called  in the near future for the purpose vof discussing  in.detail the proposed amalgamation. When that  meeting is called avc hope that every -farmerJin  this district Avill. make a. point of being present  and take jpart in the discussion.

Whcn^the Canadian dollar  sank to a discount of 2c in New  York, the" event was considered  so unusual as to'call for extend-  cel comment in this page. At the  time the ariticle appeared, the  Avriter received correspondence  from readers relating -thereto'  and, among other things, was  asked to explain how the rate  of discount was arrived at. The  discount on the Canadian dollar  has now more than doubled,  amounting to 4%c on-the.-dollar  at tbe time of .writing,' arid, at  the rate at. which the value of  Canadian currency is falling,  the discount niaybecome 5c before this article appears. The  opportunity, therefore, presents  itself to deal further with this  important subject and at the  same time  to answer the cor-    rcspondence alluded to.  ~ " |     The epicstion    of    exchange  St. John, N.

In fact, thc public as a whole  does not even .pretend to understand anything about the  subject and consequently takes  Utile interest in it. And yet it-is  one of thc most important topics  of thc day.  The Canadian dollar is at a  discount of 4V������������������ cents in the  United States. Putting it in another way, thc American dollar  is at a premium of 4% cents in  Canada. Four anel one-half  cents on the dollar is 4V& per  cent. To those who are not familiar with business matters,  this .seems an insignificant  amount. It is hardly as much,  one would say, as allowed by  way of discount at.a cash-and-  carry grocery. But the business  man is not ..dealing with one  dollars worth, nor even-with one  hundred nor one thousand, but  with ten thousand "and up. ��������������������������� On  6iie hundred thousand the discount amounts to $4,500, "while  on onc million it amounts to  $45,000. The latter sum Used to  be regarded as a tidy little fortune while "the former represents a nice profit on an importation" of-goods of; tlie - value  mentioned. When we take into  consideration the larger operations, such as arc involved in the  payment of interest or-principal  on large government borrowings, wc can see how. quickly  lhis discount of 4Mj per cenl will  amount into figures which will  embarrass finance' ministers awl  add to the rate of taxation.  pat! as it may be the situation  with respect to the Canadian  dollar, it is not nearly so W  as the position of Great Britain  with respect to the. pound- sterling. Not Jong since the pound  sterling-was selling in New York  at $4������������������25. As the normal value  of the-pounoV sterling is $4-86,  it is clear that the discount was  Oj cents, or somewhere in the  vicinity of j4 per cent, as compared with 4a/a per cent on the  Canadian dollar. Just consider  what this would wean-in the  case of one operation alone.  Next year falls due the Anglo-  French loan, of $500,000,000.  Thirteen per cent of this sum  would he no less than $65,000,-  000. That is to say. instead of  having to pay back the amount  borrowed, namely $500,000,-  OOO.-GreaUHritainAvould-hav^to.  pay hack $505,000,000.

It is  hard to say how German money  would stand. It has just been  announced that the United  States may loan Germany $100,-  000,000, but no comment has yet  appeared with respect to the  rale of exchange, ancl the writer  has not yet noticed any quotation on the German mark. It  is unlikely, however; that German exchange would be quoted  any higher than. French-if as  high as it. In fact, it is doubtful if the currency of a single  European belligerent would pass  at par in New York today-  That means that thc American  dollar is worth morc than par  not only in Canada but in London, Paris, Koine, Berlin, Vienna, and throughout Europe.���������������������������  Toronto Saturday Night.

V-  In this connection I feel "it  would be wise to cite the decision "of "The- Committee.. ,pn  Commercial and Industrial Policy after the War," appointed J>y  the British Government under  tlie chairmanship of frajtf Balfour of Burleigh, _wh������������������cti, after  two, years of work������������������ has just-reported- -' Quotations from the  report follow:��������������������������� .     -  vfhi������������������ change has been strong-  lv urged upon us from variow  quarters, hwt it cannot he said  that there is any such general  agreement of opinion m its .favour among those who have  studied the- subject as - would  justify its adoption. .; ; / -  * - . . . . in view, of toe  exceptional. difficulties;; wittl  which trade will he faced durmg  the period immediately1 ojjow-  ing tne war. special weight mw������������������t  he attached to the consequences  which are JiHely to arise ^wnng  that period. ?n our opinion-it  is absolutely certain that- the  anticipated uniformity could not  be obtained for a very long period, if ever, .,-  "There is further the serious  objection thaUf-wejnducedilhe  above-mentioned countries (non-  metric) to JchangP over to. the  metric system, we should be s������������������r-  rendering to Germany.the advantages which' our manufacturers now enjoy over here hoth  in their markets and in our own;  great loss anel confusion tit a  particularly inopportune mo-  ment for thc sake of distant ancl  doubtful advantages.

Let's Have the Proof.  llie preliminary ihenring of  the case against the labor men  arrested in Winnipeg in connection with- the general strike,  has been one of the,mosl peculiar legal cases that has,ever  been witnessed in this or any  other-British country. A new  form of jurisprudence has been  developed. _ Instead "of thc indicted persons being adjudged  innocent until proved guilty,  they are guilty until they have  proven their innocence.

Three iii vers Station as It  .Will Appear When Completed.  The City of TLiee Rivers, Province  o������������������ Quebec, will soon be graced by a  new station, moie modem and better  Buited to the requirements of the  tiaffic which has been steadily in-  (Ci easing in this progressive metropolis of thc St .Maui ice region. Such  is the announcement of the Canadian  Pacific authouties, and one may rest  assured lhat their decision to replace  tho present stiucture by another  more in harmony witb the importance that this industrial centre takes  to-day wit' not tail to satisfy the  Three RiVcrs population, which for  6ome time has bcen anxious to ������������������ee  this company undertake the works  rendcied nccessaiy by the rapid de-  \clopment of the city and surrounding counlry. ���������������������������������������������  Delayed to some extent by the  European War, which forced it  to woik in other duections, the  Company will now be able to satisfy  thc reasonable demands of the pub-"  lie at Three Rivers in erecting at  this point a station which will be a  cietlit to it. and which at the same  tune will answer to the needs of the  traffic.  The new construction will,- it goes  without saying, be absolutely up-to-  date, and piovided with all the conveniences and diffeient seryices  ���������������������������which one can find in the stations of  larger cities. Thc architects who  have de'signed the plans, have adopted the French Chateau style, success-  lully employed at Quebec for the  Chateau Frontenac and the Palace  Station, since it harmonizes thoroughly with the'character of tne  population and of the country, and  since it lends itself equally well to  this kind of building, both from the  practical' and the aesthetic point of  view From the extsnoi the great  waiting room below is frankly indicated, while the principal entrance  of the station as well" as the exit o  the trains, have been designed to  form an ensemble very pleasing to  the eye The interior disposition is  arranged so^that the passenger has  easily accessible on the grround floor  all the services of the Station.* comprising the ticket* offices, news  stand toilets, telephones, telegraph.  well Iishted restaurant, parcel  Two waiting rooms, one  for ladies" and the other for^ men.  -n-n ������������������������������������t nt thp general waiting room  *sxfr<<jmmm>  4SA������������������jt*<%^'  *cz-zdf^?v-  .*0���������������������������&f������������������jsf?jx'  a  room.  Above is a diagram of the floor space of the old Station, and  - below a diagram of the floor space of the1 new building,  to which access is given in the first  place by a well lighted central concourse. The baggage room wing  has been placed at the side or, arid  parallel with, the train platform and  tracks, opening on one side.directly  to the platform and on the other lo  the street.  The building as designed, will.be  of fireproof construction, faced on  the exterior with warm brick and  cut stone dressings of Deschambcault  or similar limestone. The roofing  material will have floors of marble  and terrazso tile, the walls treated  with marble wainscots and caen  stone or marble above. The toilet  rooms will be finished with tile  floors, marble wainscots and divisions. Generally tha wood finish  throughout will be of Canadian oak.  The heating, lighting ant plumbing  services will be of the most up-to-  date, arranged and furnished in quality and kind commensurate to the requirements'of the  travelling  public.  With its population of 22.000 souls,  and its numerous" industries, this  town has an undoubted right to these  improvements which will ccitainly  contribute to the continuation of its  expansion/ The development of the  City of Three Rivers will not fail  before long to .reach vast propoi tions  tor its exceptional situation half-way  between Quebec and Monti eal, and  at the mouth of the St. Maurice,  drawing all the valley of that river.  guarantees it a future of progress  and prosperity. .. -     *  The City ef Three Rivers is one of  the most ancient and Interesting in  the,Province,of Quebee, if not* of  Canada, and Its importance was'recognized from   the.earliest-colonial  times. Founded in 1634 by Lavio-  lette and a group of hardy colonists  from Quebec, lhis point was under  the French regime, one of the most  important positions In the country  for the fur trade with the Indians;  it was the rendezvous of all the Indian tribes friendly to the French,  and many expeditions were organized against the Iroquois and tho  New Englanders at a time when tho  Kingdoms of Fiance and England  were each edea-voring to ensuro  'their supremacy on the American  continent. b  What  contributed   not a little to"  the development   of   Three    Rivera  was the exploit of the famous iron  mines  of  St.   Maurice,   which  wero  already  at  work in 1737.    Thte in-  'dustry^ gradually   assumed   greater ,  importance,   and   today   the   manufacture  of  pig  iron  in  the  Radnor  Foundries' is one of the most pros-,  perous  in  the district.    The forest.) .  which coveis all the regions situated j  to the north along the St. Maurice;  and   its   tributaries,  has   also  been,  an important factor in development������������������r  sawmills and great pulp plants havo  been established on the banks of tho  St.-Maurice, and employ nt the present date thousands    of    workmen.'  In that industry alone, one factory -  ships  annually  60.C00 t-������������������ns of-pult_.  and of Kraft paper.

Surface tillage conserves the moisture of the winler and spring  months for lhe use of the tree  during the period of growth anti  seasonal fruit development. Tillage aerates the soil, aiding  cliemicaland bacterial action in  plant food production. The tillage operations aid in thc disintegration of the soil particles  that carry lhc food elements.
