Both in  number of exhibits and in character  of the work and the scope of the exhibits the fair was a surprising success -. and speaks well for botb  teachers and  scholars.  Particular" mention should be made  of the agricultural exhibits for  which no prizes were offered, and of  the work and helpfulness of Janitor  Toin Robinson, who contributed in so  many ways, especially in flowers, to  the.success of the fair.

Competition in the various classes  of poultry were especially ' keen. H^  A. Allison's entries of. Barred Rocks  were the comment of all. Phillips'  White Wyandottes also attracted  much attention. The showing '"of  White Leghorns by G. H- Smedley of  Enderby, took many of the prizes in  this class. With, 13 entries against  him Mr. Smedley captured -1st and  2nd in cockerels; with 18 entries, 1st  and 3rd in pullets; and won 2nd in  pen. He also won the Championship  Cnp for tbe finest male bird in the  show. V    . o  p.-W. Chapman was another winner of prizes from this district. He  carried off 1st for ensilage corn; 2rd  for ensilage sunflowers; 3rd for  matured Jersey bull; 1st for Dorset  Horned .ram;.. 1st .and._2nd_for__Porset  ewes, and 3rd for pigeons.  Exhibits from Enderby-Mara district were most regrettably few. The  one redeeming feature was the district exhibit by the newly developed  locality overlooking Grindrod and  known as Grandview Bench. This  display, considering the short time  that locality has been developed, was  remarkably fine. It took 2nd prize  against the district exhibit by Lumby.  The industrial exhibits by the Delco  people, Lands Limes, stoves, ranges,  autos. building material, etc., attracted much attention, ana all visitors  showed particular pleasure at seeing  the display of Flavo Flour, milled by  the Okanagan Farmers Milling Co.,  recently established at Vernon.  The $10,000 Percheron stallion owned by the farmers of Lavington-Lum  by took the eye of everyone visiting  the horseshed. Jno. Bell's black  Clydesdale B. C. iBaron also made a  One showing. In this division there  was little competition, except, possibly in the saddle horse and general  purpose classes.  Following--the judging there was  some horseracing and a bucking contest Tursday afternoon which ended a  very successful fair.  Armstrong's  new hospital  was  formally  opened  last  week,  and  is  the  pride of that locality.

Dunwoodie is visiting Enderby friends from -Victoria, where  she has resided the past three years  or more.  The Fintry Farm Herefords and the  Davidson Shorthorns ������������������ from Calgary  were the big attraction in the cattle  exhibits at  Armsrong last week.  There were 25 per cent, more entries in the Armstrong Fafr^this year  than last, and oil districtss but Enderby "and Mara were well represented. -  o"  The  new' drop   curtain   and   wings  for the Enderby Theatre stage were  placed into, position Tuesday, adding  greatly to the appearance of the play  house and particularly, to the stage  effect.  ���������������������������There will be "an exhiblion of Ayr-  sire cattle, Yorkshire, Birkshire,  Tamworth and> PoTan China hogs.  Lincoln and Suffolk sheep at the Kelowna Fair next Thursday from the  Prairies, and Mat. Hassen. has been  engaged  to auction them off.

It arrived at 7 o'clock Tuesday evening and left at 1 o'clock on  Wednesday afternoon. As a result  many who intended seeing the exhibits failed to go to Vernon from outside points. But Vernon citizens  and residents close in took_advantage  of the opportunity offered Wednesday morning and a steady stream of  visitors passed through the exhibition cars from 9 o'clock until noon.  The French exhibitionQ train was  officially inaugurated by Marshal  Fayolle, the head of the special  French mission to Canada, and was  opened with much ceremony by Premier Meighen at Montreal on August  27.  The train Is made up of twelve  coaches, eight of which are industrial  exhibit cars. The first of these,  known as "La Pensee Francaise"  (the French thought), is an exhibition  of the art, literature and science of  France throughout -the ages. -There  are'special exhibits of historical character as well. The second and third  coaches, displayed industrial exhibits  including travel (railways and shipping), photography, civil engineering,  mines and fhineral products, mechanics, building decorations and sports.  ThereVere exhibits from the French  colonies, .and- one section was devoted more, particularly. t0 aeronautics. *  Of special interest to women was  the car called ^''La Mode," where was  shown the' latest designs of. Parisian  g wns and frocks, as well - as_ hats,  hosiery,- corsets - and - everything1 connected" with* madame's toilette, as dic^  tated by the dressmakers of the Rue  men and Canadians on the battle  field would continue in the fields of  commerce,   science  and   art.  MARA    NOTES  George this week to spend the winter de' la Pa,x-    Another coach contained  here. He says there are 21 sawmills  located between Revelstoke and Fort  George and only here and there a mill  <ha,s operated a month or so at a timeJ"  All are closed down with little prospect of doing anything this fall or  winter.  A- fiui3t wedding was celebrated at  the home of Mrs. Povies, Enderby.  last Saturday everting, September  24th, when Miss Mabel Race became  the bride qf Mr. Wm. Curry, the Rev.  Mr. Blay officiating. Only the immediate friends of- the bride -'and  groom were present. Following the  ceremony the ntany friends of Mr.  Curry gathered and gave bira a royal  charivari.  If the prevaling financial depression does nothing more than put a  stop*=to^the=counter-account=and^open  credit system of doing business in  the small communities of the West,  it will hfve been a blessing in, disguise. We are told that the hard  times will not disappear with the harvesting of the crops, however large  they be, and that a year or more of  strict economy on the part of everybody will be necessary to bring  things back to normal. If all business were put upon a 30-day cash  basis conditions would be improved  greatly.  Encouraging   Building  Interest Not Allowed���������������������������Refund was  last week allowed on two C. P. R.  tickets, Keewatin to Rat Portage and  return, issued Aug. 3, 1887.  Mr. and Mrs. A. A. Faulkner came  in from Merritt Saturday and remained in Enderby until Monday.  Mr. Faulkner says that tbe lumber  mill at Merritt is operating regularly  and the winter season promises to be  lively.  The municipality of Merritt has  adopted a novel way of encouraging  building in that town. Lots taken  over by the town for taxes are offered  free to anyone who will undertake  to build a residence or store-building  thereon. By this means the town is  turning a profitless proposition into  a tax bearing enterprise and is inducing new homebuilders to locate there.  A saw mill of 1000 feet daily capacity Is to be set in operation at  Slocan City.  leather products, such as belts, gloyes  travelling and shopping nags, etc.  Perfumeries of , all kinds,' chemical  and pharmaceutical products also in-  cuded-  '       j  On the, sixth coach was-shown Parisian fancy goods, scientific instruments, brushes, bric-a-brac and toys,  and electrical appliances. There is a  car with agricultural, horticultural  and alimentary products, and another  which won great admiration for Us  unusually brilliant display pf jewelry  and modern jewel setting, bronzes,  watches, clocks and cutlery.  French Relegation Panquetted  Tuesday night the staff, of French  officals accompanying the French-  Canadian exhibition train were ban-  _quette_d_in_the__sump_tpous_ly_ appointed.  dining room of the Kalamalka Hotel,  there being present, in addition to officers and members of the Vernon  Board of Trade and civic bodies of  Vernon, the Reeves of other Okanagan towns and municipalities and representatives of the various Boards of  Trade of the Valley. Eighty plates  were laid and the affair proved" a  surprise to their guests.  It was declared to be the climax of  many similar happy expressions of  welcome which had been tendered the  French delegation on their travel  through  Canada.  The warmth of Vernon's ' welcome  as voiced by Mr. J. A. MacKelvie,  federal member, and, others), fairly  took the men of France "off their  feet."  From every speaker representing  every locality in the Valley, the same  spontaneous welcome eloquently flowed. It was a welcome which carried  with, it appreciation oi all that the  world owed to the men of France for  their heroism in the Great War as  well as for her greatness in science,  art, literature and industrial accomplishment, and was responded to by  the delegation's leader in words of  thanks and tender appreciation. The  mission of the exhibition train, he  said, was to show what France had t0  sell and he hoped the bond of comradeship   built   upj   between   French-  The Mara M. A. A. is having the  hall painted. Mr. Miller has the contract.  Mr. and Mrs. E. Smith of Grand-  view Bench were visitors here on  Sunday.  Rupert Davy and Wm. Owen were  visitors to Enderby on business on  Friday.  George   Looms   was   a   visitor   this  week,  coming  in   on   Monday's   train  from the Prairies to arrange for some-  work   on    his    homestead   on   Mara  Lake.  Will and Alf Graham left last Friday by car on a trip to Fort George  with a full supply of trapping outfit,  intending to put in the winter in that  district.  Wilfred Owen, who has been on an  extended visit home, leaves on Saturday night for Vancouver to resume  his studies at King George High  School." '  Owing to the unsettled weather  there   was   not   many   visitors from  _>  Mara to the Armstrong fair but those  that- attended seemed well pleased  with the show, especially the cattle  and   poultry.  At a special meeting of the Mara  LocalaU. F. on Monday night Rupert  Davy and Mr. McCurdy where elected as delegates to the District convention at Enderby on the 27." The  meeting-was not in favor of putting  a candidate in the field.  .General sympathy is expressed here  towards Miss Haydon, : ourV junior  teacher,--who was called suddenly'to  Vancouver - on the death of-.'her  father. In the short time Miss Hay-  <k>n has been here she has made  many friends- who hope to see lief  hack shortly.  Those- who were present enjoyed  a rare musical-treat last Friday evening when Miss Wanship of the Shuswap Music club gave a concert.  Owing to the counter attractions and'  poor advertising there was not a big  crowd present, but we can assure  the lady that if she ever favors us-  with another visit she will draw a  large house. She has* a well trained  soprano voice and is a splendid vocalist, and was very generous with her  songs. She also aided in supplying  music for the dance. Refreshments  were served and greatly enjoyed.  ^--.. ...v^..  GRINDROD   NOTES  Mrs. Handcock spent a few days  at Vernon this week.  Miss H. Graham spent the weekend at her home in Canoe.  Mr. D. S. Rashleigh was unexpectedly called to Victoria on Monday.  Mrs. D. S. Rashleigh is now in the  Vernon Hospital with abscess in both  ears. We hope she will have a speedy  recovery.  Messrs. Carlin and Stickland filled  their silo this week with sunflower  silage. The sunflower crop was enormous���������������������������plants 14 feet high were quite  common.  Rev. C. B. Blay held Harvest Service here on Sunday. The display  of fruit and vegetables were not as������������������  large as formerly owing to the early  frost having cut things off.  GRANDVIEW   BENCH   NOTES  A. Wixs of Victoria is visiting relatives here a few days.  Mr. and Mrs. Lidston were visitors  to Salmon Arm on Friday.  F. J. Dysart is making a very extensive clearing on his ranch here.  Quite a number of' Grandview  Bench people went to Arms*rong on  Thursday to  see the exhibition.

To be sure, the Indians should  be provided for. Fifty years ago lhcy were provided for. Six thousand acres were alloled lo  Ihe SpallumcheensJ Then they numbered 2.000  or more. Today Ihey number less lhan 200.  The 200 occupv the same amount of land as lhe  original 2.000 -and lill probably 50 acres. The  rest of the 0.000 acres is no farther developed  lhan it was 50 years ago. And yet the government holds il away from worthy white Canadian  families.  The federal political campaign is to be fought  out on the tariff issue���������������������������an issue that always has  served to force Canadians back into old parly  lines, though after the game is played nobody  knows anything about the tariff and as Tittle  carjes. However, since the tariff' is the issue,  here is the tariff plank of each of the three parties in Canada.  , "��������������������������� The Tariff plank of the National Liberal and Conservative party is as follows: ��������������������������� '        ji  "A thorough revision of the tariff with a view to tlie  adoption of such reasonable measures as are necessary���������������������������  '(A)* to assist in providing adequate revenues; (B) to  stabilize legitimate industries; (C) to encourage the es-  tahlishment of new industries essential to the economic  development of th nation; (D) to develop to the 1-illest ������������������x-  tcnt our natural resources; (E) to prevent the abuse of  the tariff for thc exploitation of the consumer: xV) to  safeguard the interests of the Canadian people :n tho existing world struggle for commercial and industrial supremacy.  "The principle of trade preference between the different members of the lirittannic Commonwealth should  he maintained and extended from time to time to such degree" as may be found practicable and consistent with  Canada's interests."  The Tariff plank of the Liberal Party is as follows:  "That the best interests of Canada demand that substantial reduction of the burdens of customs taxation be  made with a view t0 the accomplishing of two purposes  of the importance: (1) Diminishing'the very high cost  of living which presses so severely on the masses of the  people; (2) Reducing the cost of thc instruments of  production in the industries based on the natural resources of the Dominion, the vigorous development of which is  essential to the progress and prosperity of our country.  "That to these ends wheat, wheat flour a,nd all products  of wheat, the principal articles of food, farm inplements  and machinery, farm tractors, mining, flour and sawmill  machinery and repair parts thereof, rough and dressed  lumber, gasoline, illuminating, lubricating and fuel oils,  etc., nets, net twines and fishermen's equipment and fertilizers should be free from customs duty, as well as the  raw material entering into the same: that a revision  downward should be effected in the duties on wearing  apparel and footwear, and "on other articles of general  consumption (other than luxuries), as well as on the raw  material entering int0 the manufacture of the same; that  the British preference should be increased 50 per cent,  of the general tariff.  "That the. Liberal Party hereby pledges itself to implement by legislation the provision of this resolution  when returned to power."  As to the Reciprocity Pact, which the people of Canada  defeated in the general election of 1911, it is declared that  "we. as Liberals, again place on record our appreciation  of the object of the said agreement, and our faith in the  principles of friendly international relations underlying  it, and we express our earnest hope that there will be  a renewed manifestation by the two governments of a desire to  make  some "similar  arrangement." ,. ~  . The Tariff Plank of the Farmers' Party, as promulgated  by thc Canadian Council of Agriculture, calls for the  amending of thc tariff laws as follows:  fl) By an immediate and substantial all-round reduction of the customs tariff.  (2) By reducing the customs duty on goods'imported  from Great Britain tc one-half the rates charged iin_ter  the general tariff and that Curlier gradual uniform -reductions be made in the remaining tariff on British imports that will ensure complete free trade between Great  Britain and> Canada.  (3) That the Reciprocity Agreement of 1911 be accepted by the Parliament of Canada.  (4) That all foodstuff not included in the Reciprocity  Agreement be placed on the free list.  (n) That agricultural implements, farm machinery,  vehicles, fertilizers, coal, lumber, cement, illuminating  fuel and lubricating oils he placed on the free list, and  that all raw materials, and machinery used in their manufacture also be placed on the free list.  (6) Tliat all tariff concessions granted to other  countries  be  immediately extended  to  Great Britain.

Mr. Smilh a I the recent session of parliament Avas introduced, lo the privileges and  elections committee of Ihc House of Commons to  submit such interpretations on the Dominions  Elections Act as might occur lo him, with llie  result lhal the acl was considerably amended.  Under lhc new Election Acl a British subject by  birth or naturalization is entitled to vole if he  or shc is 21 years of age. resident in Canada for  one year and in the constituency for Iwo months  at the time of the issue of Ihe writ.  In cilics and towns of 2500 population a person to be. allowed to* vote must have his or her  name entered on the voters' list before election  day. In towns of 2500 or less population, and  in rural municipalities, persons otherwise qualified, whose names arc nol on thc list, may vote  by declaring on election day thcy are entitled to  vote and at the same time have a voler, resident  in thc sam;c poll, whose name is on the list, swear  or declare lo the qualifications of thc applicant.'  "Once lhc writs are issued, lists," Mr. Smith  says, "will bc revised in every polling division in  Canada and thc basis of these lists will be the  provincial lists, as used in provincial elections  any time within the past two years, except in  such .provinces- where since the provincial elections, new lists havc been prepared by sheriff's or  municipal'or other officials for, or as a basis of,  provincial lists. To any such provincial lists  will be added the names of persons now qualified  and the names of non-qualified persons may be  struck off. In provinces where there are no  provincial lists, as pointed out, then thc lists are  to bc wholly prepared for the present elections.

If you want to find God go and dig in thc sand  with the children, or hoc in thc garden���������������������������then  you will forget all about electrotypes, old books,  old sermons, old creeds, old barrels, you leave  them behind, and become an un trammeled agency of expression for thc Divine. Thc shackles  arc thrown, and you arc free. A new light  comes into thc eyes; you arc born again; born  into a new world. In tbe men and women  about you, you see Gods in thc chrysalis.

Somebody has said that "the only education  that counts evolves Chayacter. Next comes  Competence, which is thc ability to be useful.  Third, and last come Facts���������������������������but these can be secured through a clerk, the others you have to  work for." Somc men evolve by working their  besom up into beautiful things; fruits and flowers about the home, or works of art to be placed  within. Others never evolve at all. .Thcy work  their besom up -into bile over electrotypes, old  books, old. sermons, old creeds, "old barrels. Tlie  joy of service is .not for them; thc pleasure of  digging in the sand with the children or hoeing  in the, garden, and thus "sweating-in" God���������������������������-  which-is Love���������������������������they never have tasted. And,  as a result, what comes from them is.-^���������������������������clectro-  types, old, books, old sermons, old creeds, old  barrels.    And these they fight for.  Men of this class do not see God iti the chrysalis in the men and,women about them in the here  and now.  .The way. to God through them is by  the burden of electrotypes, old books, old sermons, old creeds and old barrels. Their martyrs,  and''men and women of heroic service, are all in  the dim and musty past, or cavorting in some  far-away missionary field. To them thc heroism of the mothers in our homes is nothing, and  thc gallantry of modern business vulgar and sinful. "    Now thai the chill of winter is approaching  the good housewife of many of our homes is  going about thc place with knife-blade and  woolen or felt waste, filling every conceivable  crack about thc doors and windows where a  breath of fresh air could squeeze through. If  the windows are not nailed down, they are fixed'  so as not to be opened. Result: colds and more  colds. When will we learn that "colds" arc not  "taken" from exposure to drafts of fresh air.  "Colds" come from within, not from without.  Wc overfeed, and do not breath in enough fresh  air to enable the body to^gct rid of thc poisons.  Lack of fresli air in our homes, our churches,  our public schools, and public halls, has causscd  and is causing, more tuberculosis and kindred  diseases than all othcr evils combined." .As thc  soul is withered and intellect paralyzed by feeding spiritually entirely upon one kind of canned  theology, so is the body weakened and functional organs paralyzed by forcing into the lungs  so much breathed-ovcr air. We forcc into the  blood through the lungs the vilest poisons, and  then wonder why we "take cold" as soon as the  cold weather comes! cThe cold weather is not  to blame; it is our stuffy, badly-ventilated rooms.  Sleep out of doors, winter and summer, and you  will never know what a "cold" is. If it is not  convenient for you to do that, open wide the  window of your sleeping room. You will find,  that you will sleep warmer under fewer  blankets with - the window open than with it  closed. Give the lungs plenty of fresh air, and  don't overfeed and your "cold" troubles will be  at an end. '   '.'

Stocking up the Harem���������������������������The 19-  year-od princely son of the Egyptian  khedive has become the centre of a  Paris sensation, on discovery that he  has been recruiting his harem from  French bathing beaches.  There isn't a section in the Dominion of Canada today where business  conditions have come back so near  normalcy as right here in the Okanagan, and Enderby has tho distinction  of being tho one town in the valley  which this year has not a lot to sell  for delinquent taxes, and not a delinquent water rate, and tho "business  as usual" sign can be hung over the  door.  In addition to a safely developing  farming district wo have here the  only lumber mill in the Province that  has run night and lay shifts throughout the sawing season and will continue to do so fio long as weather conditions permit. There is not a mill  in the Province, either, which is selling at as reasonable a price as the  local mill, with the result that this  season has seen the heaviest shipping'  ot past years.  Here is a write up of the Okanagan  by Charlotte Gordon, in the Winnipeg  Free Press, which tells truthfully of  general conditions in the Okanagan.  Enderby district does not figure extensively in fruit shipping, but of 60  bushel to the acre grain, ancl A 1 lumber this district "beats em all," without talking about it.  "The present season is regarded as  onc of the most satisfactory the residents of the Okanagan Valley have  known, and every centre is now a  scene of marked activity" says the  writer. "The spirit of optimism that  is evident is readily understood when  it is known the value of the output of  the valley for fruits, vegetables, grain  and livestock, will amount to about  nine  million dollars.  "J. A. MacKelvie, M.P., for. Yale,  editor ot the Vernon News, stated  that in his thirty-two years of residence in the valley, he had never  seen better crops. He considered  that no section of the continent was  better able to face hard times than  the Okanagan valley. . There -. has  been a satisfactory development in  the various districts during the last  two years and quite a.numbev of new  settlers have come in. Mr. MacKelvie stated that the great problem  was irrigation, and as it is gradually  being solved, he is confident, that  with the fine climate and large returns per capita, this choice corner  of Arcadia will 'some day be thickly  populated.  "The irrigation systems represents  an expenditure0 of about $5,000,000 and  aro privately owned, municipally  owned and owned by water districts,  controlled by the people. The future  will see progress along the lines of  greater centralization in the administration of the systems in the various districts and will bring about a  greater economy. The Vernon district is an example of the value of  this, in that it is controlled by one  watcr district���������������������������the White Valley Irrigation company.  "The old essentials, a good road,  nearness-.to- shipping,,centres and  proximity to markets has become  more or less obsolete. The automobile Is of great service in the rural  districts and it is claimed the  Okanagan has more motor cars pro  ratio than any section of Canada,  with about 3,000 motors in the valley.  "The efficiency of centralized selling has been demonstrated and the  residents of tlie valley have concentrated oh marketing problems.  The concensus of opinion ��������������������������� is that the  growers will become more successful  as thcy permanently organize into  big groups and inaugurate a market  policy which will take care of the  increasing tonnage. The trend is in  that direction and a great impulse  to trade has resulted. The Okanagan United Growers' the B, C. Growers, the Occidental Fruit company  are a group of packing houses that  handle 75 per cent, of the Okanagan  output. This year they have enlarged their scope of work and have  largely Increased their export trade.  Shippers   Form   Organization  "The shippers of the valley have  formed a traffic and credit association, a friendly organization with  the chief aim to regulate shipments  and extend the markets. This association is carrying on a campaign  of advertising throughout Canada  and plans to extend its advertising  scheme throughout Europe, Asia and  other   world   points,   with   a  view   to  working up a greater export trade.  This Work is carried on by each  grower contributing a cent a box  through their shipping organization to  the trallic association. Such a movement is but a part of the "Grown-in-  Canada" movement. Boosting British Columbia industries boosts thc  output of Canada in general.  "Tho railway is co-operating to the  uttermost with the shippers in  handling the crop. There has been  no shortage of labor in the valley and  large numbers of women and girls  aro employed in te canneries and as  pickers.  "Frost proof storage buildings are  becoming general through the valley  with one in each centre. All of these  buildings are controlled by locj'l organizations which, arc affiliated with  the various shipping companies.  Ship 5,700 Cars in Season  "It is estmated that there would be  about 5,700 cars of fresh fruits and  vegetables, not. including canned  goods, cider, hay and livestock, sent  out of the valley this season. This  will  include 3,800 cars of apples,  800  o  cars of other fruits and 1,100 cars of  vegetables.      Eight   hundred   cars   of  o  apples ar������������������ being shipped to Great  Britain, and over 500 cars to the  United States, while shipments are  being prepared for the prairies,  Eastern Canada, New Zealand,  France, Norway, Sweden, South America and South Africa.  "Prices of winter apples, while  lower than last year, will not mean  much of a loss to the grower as  there has been a considerable reduction from the high prices of last  year in packing and the handling  charges. The Jonathan apple is of a  very fine quality, and the Macintosh  Red is comng along well. There was  an unusual crop of crab apples, sbm'e  of the fruit being as large as ordin.  ary sized apples.  "About twenty thousand acres of  land is set out in fruit trees in the  valley, with" the ;,larger opart-of tlie  acreage in apples. . In the past seven  years there has not' been much acreage planted until this year when  there has been a. marked activity in  the making of new. orchards. There  are, as well,' large areas set out in  grains,  vegetables  and  hay  meadows.  Output Increasing Rapidly  "The output of the valley, is increasing rapidly and the co-operative  organizations are alive to the necessity of providing the necessary accommodation to take care of the  crops. The great warehouse of the  Okanagan United Growers was one of  the many results of their efforts in  this direction. Forty thousand boxes  of fruit were being handled the day of  our visit and the- capacity of the  warehouse is 250,000 boxes. It is  scientifically built so as to have the  same temperature winter and .summer, without artificial heat. Over  8,000 packages of fruit were packed  and=shippcd=in-one-day-^and=there-are.  about 175,000 packagjes of produce  stored at one time. Oriental help is  not used and 75 per cent, of the workers are returned soldiers. The great  extent of the building, the large  quantities of produce and the many  workers at full speed presented an  animated scene and there was thc  realization of what a great industry  it is. Onc of the.girl packers made a  record of 1SS boxes in oho day and  the average pack is 150 boxes as one  person's  work.  "Tho canning industry has made  rapid strides in the valley since it  was started in 1917. The various  canneries aro working at full speed  with tomatoes and it is estimated  that over 200,000 cases of canned  goods will be shipped from the valley  this season. The canneries of the  valley have reached the highest stage  of excellence in the canning of  tomatoes.  "There is everywhere in the valley,  orchards flushed with ripened fruit  and gardens sumptuous with the  bloom of late summer--much to make  life worth while. In thesev warm,  soft autumn days, blue overhead,  russet underneath, the year is at its  richest and everyone is enjoying the  great out-of-dodrs."  tern  How true it is that one's own good  breeding is security against other  people's  ill  manners.  .
