All in Perfect Health  was signed. He left for Nelson to  day to resume his pre war occupa  tion.   ,���������  . _ Charles Michener, who reached  the western front before the armistice  was signed and saw some real fighting in France, returned to the city  last'night.''  Last night a reception was tendered the returned soldiers in the  Methdist church by the congregation. Tonight they will be given a  public reception in the Davis hall by  the citizens of Grand Forks.  A  large number   of  Great  War  > veterans  have   returned  to  Grand  Forks since the last issue of The  Sun. They are all gladto get back  home,and the citizens are rejoiced to  see them again. They|are all in good  health and the best of condition."  Saturday evening brought back  Flight Lieut. Harris, of the Royal  Flying corps,: and Pte.W. P. O'Connor. Both saw considerable service  on the western front. Pte. O'Connor  was in the transportation service,and  he brought many packs of ammuni-  *'',������������������������������������ tion to the front line in some of the  hardest fought battles of the war.  Nevertheless he escaped without a  wound.  Monday Pte. Murray Jaues,   Pie.  ���������    W.   J.   Pearson  and   Pte.   Douglas  ^Carter  returned  to    Grand    Forks-  ' -    :   Janes  and  Pearson: went    overseas  during  the early stages of  the  war,  and tbey tt ok a hand   in   about  all  the hard fighting there was in France  and Belgium.    Carter   was attached  to   the   signaling   corps.     He   was  slightly wounded  once.    Pte. Janes  views war from a Stoic philosopher's  standpoint.   Some of   his narratives  of   incidents   that  occurred   at the  front are as humorous as the   letters  primed in The Sun from him when  the  conflict  was raging.    He went  through four years of warfare  without receiving a wound.  .   Tuesday Sergt Robert  Campbell,  Privates  Geo  C.  Brown,   ''Monty"  Mudge and Adamard    Galipeau   returned. Of the quartet, Mudge, who  was a prisoner of war in Germany for  about  four ���������  years,    perhaps   went  through the severesttrials.   His pres  ent appearance would not lead   one  to believe th.it the bill of fare in the  German prison camps   was   an   extensive one..   Brown   and   Galipeau  were in much real hard  fighting  at  the front, and both were  wounded,  though neither of  them  show   auy  evidence of their injurios at present.  Campbell   went overseas   with   the  131st battalion.   When  he   reached  England he   was  transferred to the  imperial forces, and he was in many  of the hard fought battles in France  and Belgium.  He came through the  struggle   without   being   wounded.  Ha   brought   back  with him many  war curios, including a German sni  per's gun sight, a British hand gren. [ar���������e  The Irish of It  A soldier who had fought in the  war with conspicuous valor obtained after his return home a situation in the service of a lady in the  south of Ireland. One day his mistress was talking to him about his  military career and asked: "In all  your experience of the war, what  struck you as the most wonderful  of all?" "Weil, ma'am," he said,  "what struck me the most was all  the bullets that missed me."  COMFORT EROM  E  Nest Westminster Great  War Veterans' Association Issues a Gall for  the Millennium  The creation of conditions which  will enable every worker and his de  pendents to live in comfort from the  cradle to the grave are demanded in  a restlution passed by "the New  Westminster Great War Veterans'  association at their regular meeting  last week. The resolution is now being sent on to all; provincial Great  War Veterans' associations and to  the Dominion association for endorsement, after "which it will be  presented to the Dominion govern  ment.  The demahd is made for a mini  mum wage law, which will enable  the worker and bis dependents to  live in comfort while he is working;  provision of a system of payments  during enforced idleness, whether  due to sickness or other causes, these  payments to be sufficient to keep the  family in their usual standard of  comfort, and pensions on a similar  scale in case of the death of the  breadwinner.  The resolution further calls for  forcing Orientals and other aliens  to live up to Canadian standards, on  the ground that their present standards of living tend to breed disease,  particularly tuberculosis, and are  therefore   a menace   to Candians at  Gommittees, and Delegations    Make   Advances  on  a  Two-Mile  Front.  Peter Willing to Sell  apart is recommended as soon as  the plants commence to crowd each  other.  ade, a British rifle grenade, a French  hand grenade used at the outbreak  of the wai and which proved to be an  inoffensive weapon, a French shell  case   artistically   engraved   with   a  In these measures, the resolution  asserts, are to be found a cure for  1 abor unrest.  The "C G. F. T." social held  The .perennial agitation to ship  the Doukhobor colony out of the  valley was revived at a public meet  ing in the city hall on Monday even  log. There was a large attendance  and a great deal of enthusiasm on  the subject prevailed. A large number of those present spoke in favor  of either the provincial or the federal government acquiring the holdings of the colony in the valley and  placing a settlement of returned  soldiers on the land.  The tangible advance made at the  meeting over former agitations was  the adoption of a resolution petitioning the Great War Veterans'  association to urge the Ottawa government to acquire "the lands of the  colony and place -the returned soldiers on them.  A local reconstruction committee  consisting of Messrs. Gardtier, Clark,  Love and Rev. Tanner was appointed. It was decided-that this committee should visit Peter Vereginand  attempt to secure a signed statement  from nim to the effect that hevwas  willing to sell the holdings of the  colony. Wednesday the committee  called upon Mr. Veregin, but he  refused to sign the statemeni they  desired.  Yesterday the committee,in company with the officers of the  newly organized local branch of toe  Great War Veterans' association,  paid Mr. Veregin another visit.  After an interview, through an inter  preter, betweeu the officers of the  G.'W. V. A and Mr. Veregin, tbe  latter sigued a statement that he  was willing to dispose of the  coiouy's holdings here at a price to  be determined upon later. Other  members of the colony,,.it is said,  sanctioned this statement.  The net gain in the campaign to  date may therefore be summarized  as follows: One signed statement to  the effect that the Doukhobor society is willing to dispose of its  holdings in the Boundary.  One on Hubby  Princess Patricia recently related  the story of ati amusing incident  which happened at a certain society  function she attended.  It was what is called a "Book  Tea," at which each lady guest is required to wear pinned to her dress  something to represent the title of  some fairly well known book.  One lady (said Princess Patricia)  puzzled everybody. She wore pinned  to her bodice, a photograph of her  husband  No one could guess the name of  the book she intended the portrait  to represent, but after they had all  given it up, she told them, "Life's  Handicap."  MOUNTED POLICE  ELECTRIFIED SEEDS  L  During  191S Harvest Remarkable Results Were  Secured from Them  ~4  Tomato Growing  Where growers of tomatoes have  a suitable place for starting plants it  is recommended that they should  grow their own stock. By careful  selection from individual plant3  from year fo year a variety may he  much improved from the standpoint  of earlitiess, uniformity, and pro  ductivencss.    When sown in green-  During the 191 8 harvesHin Great  Britain    Borne    remarkable   results  -vere   obtained     from     "electrified  seeds"    H.  E.   Fry,   an   electrical  engineer   in   Dorset,   England,  has  developed a process   of  stimulating  seeds so that    they   yield    healthier  and more prolific  crops.    The   pro  cerfs consists of soaking the seeds  in  a solution of   common   salt, sending  a curn-nt  of   electricity through the  solution, and   subsequently   -drying  the  seeds.    Trials   have; been made  with   electrified   wheat, barley, and  oats   in comparison with   non electrified seeds from the same sack and  sown on adjoining ground.  Ttie electrified seeds threw up  more straws, which were so much  stronger than the normal that they  withstood storms which laid the  non-electrified harvest low. The gain  in yield per acre varied in different  parts of the country from five to  nearly twenty bushels per acre for  oais, and from about five to seven  bushels for wheat. Barley showed  an increase of sixteen bushels in an  other recorded case. Twenty seven  farmers in South Devon realized an  average gain per acre of ������1 13 shillings per sack. Thus the latest British contribution to the promising  science of electroculture is being investigated by the subcommittee of  the board of agriculture of Great  Britain, which is making a scientific  study of the influence of electricity  on plant life.  Ei^ht Non-Gommissioned  Officers and Gonstables  Will Be Stationed in  This City  A public meeting was held in the  city hall on Friday evening for the  purpose of devising a plan to facilitate the location in this city of the  headquarters station of mounted police of the Kootenay sub-district.  The attendance of citizens was repre  sentafive.  luspector C. H. King.of the North  West Mounted Police, was present  and assured the meeting that he  would recommend to the federal  government that Grand Forks be  made the headquarters station for  the Kootenay sub-district.  Yesterday Inspector King stated  to a representative of The Sun that  the government had definitely decided to locate the district headquarters station in this city. There  would, he said, be eight non-commissioned officers and constables, all .  mounted, stationed here, and substations would.be located at Nelson,  llossland, Trail, Greenwood, Phoenix  and Midway. The selection of suitable buildings for barracks and  headquarters for the inspector, be  said, was being considered, but as  the task of making the final choice  in this matter laid with another official, uo definite conclusion had yet  been arrived at.  Inspector King left for Vancouver  last night.

Manly  FRIDAY, APRIL 11, 1019  The opponents" of the league of nations say  that the league will have no means of enforcing its decrees. The armies, navies and resources of a dozen associated nations would  be better able to cope with an outlaw nation  than a single nation would be.  f=  In the eyes of the law, a jag acquired at a  drug store should not be considered any more  respectable than a jag negotiated in a barroom.^ But society appears to make a distinction between, the two, as well as between a druggist and a bartender.  Work of the Late Session  Some of the more important laws enacted  by the late session of the British Columbia  legislative assembly were:  A better housing act whereby municipal  councils may obtain funds for building houses  at a low rate of interest.  An amendment to the coal mines regulation  act providing a minimum wage and the means  for enforcing the same.  The opening up of closed communities known  as company towns to the general public.  .The direct legislation act, providing for the  electors' use of the initiative if they so desire.  An act for the protection of the public  against fire insurance companies who seek to  take advantage of defects in policies.  An act to provide for the testing of iron ores  in aid of the development of the iron and  steel industry in the province.  The public utilities act, broad in scope and  comprehensive in detail and of paramount  importance to the public welfare.  An act to provide for the establishment of  public libraries in communities unable to support one unaided.  After an illness of two weeks, "W. K. 0.  Manly died at 10 o'clock this morning of  pneumonia, contracted while on a recent vis:t  to Victoria. He made a brave fight for life,  but his advanced age and a-naturally delicate  constitution were against him.  Mr. .Manly -was born   in   Grand  Rapids,  Mich.1,   a little  over sixty years ago, and he  was raised to, manhood in that city. In 1893 he  came to Grand Fosks and engaged in business  here, and since that time has been one of  our  most progessive and   highly  respected merchants.    In all  his   business transactions his  word was taken without  security.   He took a  prominent part in  municipal  affairs,   and his  record as alderman for five or six terms is an  enviable one.    He was married  shortly after  coming to this valley, and he  is survived by  his wife and two  grown-up  sons,   Don  and  Glen, the latter of whom is attached to   the  Royal Flying corps, and is now either in England or on his way home. Two of Jlis brothers,  John   and   Joseph, live in   Florida;  another  brother,   Dr. Manly, has  made his  home  in  southern Califoria for a number of years, and  still  another,  Lloyd   A., is  now located   in  northern California.  Arrangements for the funeral have not yet  been made, but it will probably be held from  the family residence on Sunday under the au-  spioes of the K. of P. and Masonic lodges, of  which orders deceased was a member.  The death of Mr. Manly has a shadow of  sadness over the community, as he was a true  friend  and  an  exemplary  citizen.  Your   Eyes   Are  Bread 'Winners.  9.

Bee Diseases  There are three brood diseases  that are of importance to the bee  keeper, and two of them are responsible tor very heavy losses  every year.  Sacbrood is an infectious disease  but transient in character. It may  he serious enough at times to weaken a colony considerably, hut sel  dom destroys it completely. It appears in the apiary mostly during  the "pring and early part of the  summer, but cases may he found at  any time during the season. The  symptoms are irregular brood and  punctured cappings; the affected  lame are usually dark grey to almost black in color and are found  lying stretched out on the lower  wall of tne cell with the head  turned up pointing to the upper  wall of the cell at the entrance. The  body wall of the diseased larva; becomes toughened while the contents  of the body are somewhat watery  and granular; the whole can he lifted  from the cell intact. There is no  definite treatment for thiH disease,  but   the   Uekeoper  who  keeps his  colonies at the maximum strength  and uses oniy voung vigorous queens  need not fear it.  Europpan foulbrood is a very infectious disease and spreads very  rapidly through an apiary, causing  very heavy losses, especially among;  black bees and hybrids. The larva;  usually die before being capped over,  while still curled in-the cell. The  color of the affected larva changes  from a glistening white to a light  yellowish or greyish tint, later turning darker and the larva set ties to  the base of the cell in a shapeless  mass, finally drying a dark dftach  able scale, which is removed by the  bees. This disease may appear at  any time during the season, but is  mostly prevalent during the spring  and early summer. European foul  brood is essentially a "weak colony"  disease, and the beekeeper who uses  only young vigorous Italian queens  and keeps his colonies strong need  not fear it.  American foulbrood does not  spread through an apiary as quickens does European foulbrood, but it  is harder to com ha . The larvre usually die after being capped over and  tho first sign the beekeeper   usuallv  has of its presence is a number of  dark, sunken cappings scattered  among the healthy brood. Sometimes these cappings may he perforated. If the capping is removed, a  dark chocolate colored mass will he  found lying on the lower side of the  cell. If a wooden toothpick or  something similar is inserted into  the diseased larva 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 tbe chief characteristic of  this disease, The only treatment advocated for American foulbrood is to  shuke the bi;es on to starters in a  clean hive and three days later to  remove the starters and give lull  sheets of foundations. The old hives  should be disinfected, the combs  rendered to wax for foundation and  the frames destroyed. The honey is  safe for human consumption, but  must not be placed where bees  have access to it. This treatment  should be given during a honey  How. If not, tho bees will need  daily feeding.
