Sladen,   Apiarist,  Dominion Experimental���������'Farms;  A telegram was received in this  city this morning from Vancouver,  saying that Capt. Hoy, of the Dominion Flying corps, would fly, over  Grand Forks next Monday, and  that a landing will be made on the  Columbia flat at about 10 o'clock in  the morning. A telegram will be  sent from Vefnon on Monday advising the people of the exact time  of Capt. Hoy's arrival in the city.  It is has been arranged to hoist  the post office flag and to ring the  fire bells on, the arrival of Capt. Hoy  next Monday as a notice to the  citizens.  PREPARING BEES  FOR WINTER  The preparation   of   the    bees   for  the winter should begin July.  Every coiony should have a young  ���������laying queen beforetiio'^eud of this  month. Year-aid queens should only  be retained if they are in full vigor.  This means the raising of a large  number of bees in August and September, and thus the first essential of  good wintering���������abundance of young  bees in each hive���������is fulfilled. A  colouy containing a young queen will  also breed more bees and produce  more honey in the following season  than one containing an old queen.  If the bees are to be wintered out  of doors, July-is n^ne too tc see about  getting the winter packing cases  made, because the colonies should be  placed in them iu September, xlt the  Central experimental station, Ottawa,  a case to hold four colonies in a block  with space for three Inches of planer  shavings at the sides and beneath  and eight inches on top, with outside  entrances three eighths of an inch  wide by one inch high, has produced  very good results in a place surround-  ed with a high board fence to protect  the bees from wind.  The third and last important factor iu preparing bees for winter is an  abundance of wholesome stores put  away before cold weather. Clover  honey, buckwheat honey and syrup  made from refined sugar have been  found wholesome for wintering, but  dandelion honey and some kinds of  honey gathered in the fall have proved  unwholesome. Colonies that have less  than thirty or forty pounds of wholesome honey should have the deflicien  cy made up with syrup consisting of  two parts of sugar and one of water.  This feed should be given rapidly, not  later than the middle or end of September, for the greater part of Canada. A 10 pound honey pail with a  number of small holes punched in the  lid makes a simplo and efficient feeder  for this purpose.  down over the combs arid covered  with a super.

JESSE BRE WER  T ENLISTED at Grand Forks in  September, 1914,. and went to  Victoria for further training. In  February we were sent to England,  and after two months' of hard training were transferred to France.  We arrived at Bologne early one  morning, and after two days we  were moved nearer the firing line,  to a place called Steenwarck, which  is near the Belgian frontier. While  waiting for breakfast, at 6 a.m., we  saw our first sight of war, in the  shape of a French aeroplane being  fired on by the Germans. It was  very exciting to watch the shells  bursting around the machine, as it  moved over the firing line. It drew  about fifty shells from the enemy's  guns in ten minutes, and returned  unharmed. After breakfast we proceeded to our different billets. One  company (my own) of our battalion  was drafted into the 15th battalion,  48th Highlanders, as reinforcements,  the other companies reinforcing the  7th, 10th, i3th and 16th Canadian-  Scottish. After a bard day's march  over rough roads we arrived at our  destination, which, to our surprise,  was only 200 yards from where we  started in the morning. We had  taken a terrible round about journey  for some reason, and between rough  roads and our heavy packs, we were  about   all  iu   that night.  'We were drafted into what was  left of the original 48th. They had  just come out of a gas attack at  Ypres, and only a few of them tut*  vived that battle. After a week's  rest we started for the trenches.  Where? We did not know. We  marched all night, resting at intervals. Some of the men threw away  their blaukets and other equipment  to make their loads lighter; but they  needed them afterwards. I threw  away mine, but regretted it after  reachiug the trenches.  We arrived at the reserve trenches  at noon ar.d had our first initiation  of shell fire. That afternoon one of  our men had the misfortune to blow  off one of his fingers while cleaning  his rifle, and others were  struck  by  GIVEN E  SALARY_B������LAWS  Tax Bylaws Are Introduced and Advanced to  tlie Third Reading  Stade  they heard a shell coming would  make a dive for thetrench. It was  funny, but very risky.  Three  o'clock   in the morning is  about the time to expect   an   attack  from the enemy.    This  morning we  were on the alert   at daybreak, and  as we were feeling chilly, I   decided  to go out and rustle some wood,   as  everything   was  quiet���������just  a rifle  cracking  occasionally   in   the   distance.    When-about 200 yards from  my trench I heard  a shell  coming.  It was from the Huns,and I thought  my time had enme.   I threw myself  on the ground and hugged the grass,  the only thing to   do  in   this   case.  The| shell  plunged down and  burst  within twelve yards of me, and  just  plastered me with dirt.   When I got  up and saw the hole in the  ground,  I thought I was iu luck.    Again the  following evening we marched out to  our  billets,   about nine miles from  the trenches.    The rain just  poured  down.    We were dumped into some  dirty old trenches which  were alive  with rats and smaller vermin.   Here  we curled up and slept, with our wet  clothes and equipment on. At 5 a.m.  we were turned out, and after breakfast marched back to the  trenches,  with the rain   still   pouring  down.  We were advanced much farther this  time, and   the   order  was given to  make no noise.     We   also   heard   a  ryrnor that we  were  going  into  action that day.   After a  two   hours'  march,   we   were halted   and   each  man received a spade,-two sandbags  and 250 extra   rounds  of   ammunition,  so   we   knew   there would be  something doing soon.    At   3   p.m.  we continued our march.     We were  being fired   upon   by   shrapnel  and  lydite.     It   was   like being iu a hail  and thuudei storm.    The men were  walking in single file, aud every  few  minutes a man would give aery and  fall to the ground, struck by   shrap  nel.    We finally reached the   trench  allotted   to   us.    A   battalion of  au  English regiment   was  jnst coming  out of this trench.    They bad   been  there for six days, and were   surely  glad to get out  ior  a   week's   rest.  After bailing the water out  of   our  trench we Fad tea, aud our   captain it hem   had   gone   down,   and  There was no business transacted  at the meeting of the city council  on Monday evening, with the exception of Aid. Miller giving notice  of bylaws providing for salaries for  the mayor and the aldermen. The  rate and tax levy and the tax percentage bylaws were also introduced  and advanced to the   third  reading  stage.  At an adjourned meeting on  Wednesday evening the two latter  bylaws were reconsidered and finally passed.  The man who thinks he has a will  of his own is apt to marry a woman  who has a won't of her own  smoke, but could not stand   it.    So  I started out again to try and  locate  myself; and it seemed as though hell  irself was turned loose this   time.    I  came to what 1   afterwards   learnfd  was the first  line of trenlhes, whore  the 16th Canadian Scottish were.    It  was they who led the   attack;   so   I  decided to dig right,  in  with    them,  aud started to fire away.    It was not  long till the trench was packed with  the   dead   aud   the* dying, and the  groans   and    agonies of   those   poor  fellows almost unnerved me;   but   1  gritted   my    teeth and wished for a  chance to  get   even      The  enemy'  shells were blowing   our   trench   to  pieces, for tbey had our range down  pat.

OFFiCE:    COLUMBIA AVENUE AND LAKR STREET.  FRIDAY, AUGUST 1, 1919  Backs Against the Wall  Never before was the need of cooperation  greater than at the present time. During the  war, when a common enemy threatened the  ���������bulwarks'of civilization, nations and peoples  got together and combined their efforts to  'ward off a result which would have been disastrous. Although the war stopped with the  enemy frustrated, another foe has arisen, and  again civilization is threatened. .  The German came out and fought, but the  radical agitator is cunning and his methods  are insidious. He panders to class distinction,  and in the older (Countries of Europe where  there is less democracy, and in remote sections  where feudalism may not have been altogether  extinct, he got a foothold. Too late lite workmen saw that what they had hoped for was  impossible of accomplishment, and as a result  there is inconceivable suffering and-distress in  Russia. That country has gone to pieces, and  now Austria-Hungary is on tho verge of it.  In this country, where democratic conditions  Lave always been paramount, the disorganiz-  and   demoralizing  element should not be  conference, production has continued through  cooperation, and with the excellent results of  this form of aclion there is no reason to listen  to a suggestion to discard it, all and rely on  force., ,  ' Standards have been attained on the American continent, and if we adhere to these we  will be doing our part. The workmen of this  country have always been working up to a  standard, and as conditions improve the standard will be higher. ��������� But what can we attain if  we aim at nothing, if we aspire for nothing  betler than we have? Certainly the objective  of the revolutionary forces in Europe is not  the elevation of those standards which had  been reached previous to the time the undermining forces gained headway.  Let us stand by what we have. If we continue in our job, if we cooperate toward the  accomplishment  of a common   end, we will  have much better chance of success in reacli-  ��������� - **���������-.'  ing onr goal than if we dethrone the  present  system and'resort to chaotic anarchy.  f.  *%  Immediate and careful attention should be given to the  first indication of eye trouble.

The men and the  employer���������labor and capital���������have adopted  the attitude of getting'together in the interests  of production, for continued production, activity without cessation, is the chief factor in  contentment and happiness. If we stop work  we get nowhere, in fact we lose ground���������we  are unhappy, discontented, poorer.  Yet the suggestion is being made that we  should all stop~\vork to bring about disorganization of the system under which we work.  Even unionism is to be overthrown, if possible.  Under the protection of sane unionism the  workman has prospered, and his progress will  continue. Despite all the results that have  been attained, despite all that we have hoped  to accomplish, revolution has been proposed.  Evolution is too slow for radicals. But invariably in the path pf revolution is destruction  and suffering.  To eooporate means to act jointly with  others to same end. What better opportunity  is there than uow to unite our efforts, not only  in the immediate interests of ourselves, but  for the good of civilization? When you read  of famine, of murde.i, of rapine, of communiza-  tion of women, we wonder if it can all be true,  for it seems as if civilization is shaking on its  'oundations. There is no doubt about the inconceivable horrors that exis tin Europe. They  are such that Mr. Lloyd George has been led  to remark that he should not be a bit sm" j were'10 per cent  pn.se I if t!i j old o'j.iatry, not fur the lii,\st tim e !  The great bronze statue of Queen Victoria  which was made so many years for the government of British Columbia, is shortly to be  conveyed to the city of Victoria, where it will  be placed in the beautiful gardens in frout of  the houses of parliament. It will be set upon  a lofty pedestal where it can be seen from incoming ships. The statue is to be conveyed on  its 40-day all-sea voyage through the Panama  canal by the Harrison Steamship Hue, which  has undertaken to put tlie statue, as it were,  on its own doorstep, entirely free of charge as  a tribute to the soldiers of British Columbia  who fought during the war. If the statue arrives in time it may be possible to arrange for  the Prince of Wales to perform the unveiling  ceremony. The pedestal of the statue is made  of Swedish granite, described by Mr. Bruce-  Joy, the sculptor, as the "most beautiful in  the world." The statue itself weighs two tons  4 cwt., and is 13 feet high. The clay figure  was ready for casting bronze in July, 1914,  and in September, 1914, pedestal and statue  were ready for shipment. But, as in the case  of the British Columbia flagstaff, nothing could  be done during the war. At first it was suggested by the British Columbia government  that the statue should be placed on exhibition  in the Kensington museum until such time as  CD  it could be shipped' to Canada. The figure  was found to be too large to be housed there.  The Guildhall, Westminster hall, and the  lioyal exchange were suggested as alternatives. The Exchange was decided upon, and  the queen's statue is there to this day. Some  idea of the valor ofthe men of British Columbia, to whom the statue belongs, can be gathered from the mere recital of the figures showing enlistment and casualties. The adjutant-  general places 40,000 as the approximate  number of soldiers who went overseas from  British Columbia. The total casualties suffered were as follows:  Wounded    14,2(50  Prisoners of war         2(50  Missing        772  Died        382  .Killed or died of wounds.  . .    4,844  Of all present-day Sewing Machines.

When I had  time to think about it, perhaps she was not  to blame, for it is probable that the number was given-.indistinctly."  This is a. frauk admission and gives rise  to the suggestion that indistinctness may  be the cause of trouble more often than  is thought.  whom died an hour after I got there.  After laying for two days in my wet  clothes^we   were  taken, by   ambulance to Bologne and put in the hospital.    A good hot, hath, clean dry  clothes and dressings on my wounds  made me feel  like wanting  to   live  again.  The wound in my  face was  my worst trouble.  There was a hole  big   enough   to   put   my finger in.  After two days we were  transported  to the military hospital at Leicester,  England, where we. received- every  attention,    and   the   nurses were so  good to us that we regarded them as  angels.    I had four operations during the four months I was at Leicester, and while I am nob in  as  good  shape as I would like to be,   yet   it  might have been worse,  and when I  think   of   that   night  we made the  charge  and   the   horrible   sights in  that trench, I can not help  but feel  thankful to be back in Canada.  One thing I forgot to mention,  which I saw with my own eyes, was  the Germans shelling, with high explosives, our ambulances while they  were attending the wounded on the  firing line.  Festubcrt, May 20th, 1915,  MY EXPERIENCES  AT THE FRONT  ���������. ���������   ( Continued from Page 1.)  He was slightly  wounded   himself,  but  he  pulled a bandage from   his  pocket and tied up my  jaws, which  were hanging, and stopped the   flow  of blood, and then went on to wherever he was heading for.   The blood  now began to come from the hole in  my throat, and  clotted  there.    My  water bottle came in handy, for if it  had not been for the water I would  surely hare choked to death.   I can  safely say   that   my    water   bottle  saved my life. It also revived me,so  that I could walk, and I managed to  get back to the trench that we made  the charge from.   The bullets  were  still strking around me, but-I was so  far gone tbat I did not care if   they  did get me. I crawled over the dead  bodies in the trench and got out  at  the back and lay   down  exhausted.  At the back of the trench I  was   in  there was a pond, and at this  point  the trench had a large   gap, caused  by the shells.   The Geirmns seemed  to be watching this gup very closely.  As I lay behind the trench listening  .to   the   thud  of  the bullets on the  bank, a bunch of men   came up, intending to cross the gap.    About  a  dozen tried it in single file, but   the  Germans didn't   miss one of   them.  Some were   wounded, others  killed  instantly. The rest gave  it  up, and  went the way they had   come.    My  own ambition   was   to   get  to   the  dressing station, which was about a  mile in the rear, but I was not going to risk that gap. I saw that  by swimming the pond I would not  get hit, and so slipped off my harness and crossed, coming in contact  with several bodies. But I did not  go far. As I began to getaway from  the protection of the trench embankment, I realized that no one could  live through so many bullets, and  so crawled on my stomach to th'e  trench. 1 could not do this without  ciawling over dead bodies that were  rotten (This ground at Festubert  had been fought over again and  again ior weeks, and neither side  nad   had   a   chance   to   bury   the  bodies.) I decided now  to dind   a  dugout in the trench and   wait   for  the stretcher.    The  first I came to  had a dead sojdier with his face   all  smashed, and I could not stay there;  the  next  held  two   wounded men,  one  nursing   the   other;   they had  been wounded early in the evening.  I tried to ask   their   permission   to  stay   with   them, but I  could   not  speak. I finally found one, and after  a   drink   from   my   beloved   water  bottle, I lay down and rested, thinking of home and many other things,  and wondering if  I  would  get   out  alive.

Thursday, 'September  4, is suggested as'��������� a tentative date,  although nothing has-yet been official  ly determinad.' As pointed out some  days ago, an earlier calling of the  session than was at first contemplated  will be. necessary.owing to the lapse  of the war measures act and the  orders in council passed under it, on  the proclamation of peace. It. is-further regarded as of great importance  that there should be no delay in ratification of the peace treaty by the  Dominion parliament.
