Myers Will  Convert It Into a Ranch  and Orchard���������Will Irrigate With City Water  McQuarrie & Robertson, of. Nelson, this week sold a 40 acre tract  on the Columbia flat, just north of  the Pacific hotel, to William T.  Myers, who arrived in the city last  week from Assinniboia, Sask., with  his family, household effects, stock  and farming implements. It is un*  derstood that the price paid was in  the neighborhood of $125 per acre.  Mr. Myers will start at once to improve the property, having made  arrangements with the cit/C for water  for irrigation purposes until a general irrigation system is installed  here. The tract consists of first-  class soil, and with water the land  cansoon be converted into a highly  productive orchard and ranch.  The Myers family have taken up  t heir residence in J. H. Plath's  house, opposite the Sun orchard.

In the excitement following the  rescue of the little child, no notice  was paid to Dr. Vigneaux, who,  however, had cried out for help, and  it was later noticed that he was  missing.  An aiarm was given and- rescuers,  after some thirty minutes, succeeded in recovering his body. All efforts  to resuscitaie him failed, however.  Dr. Vigneaux was practicing his  profession in Nelson and was quite  popular. He frequently came to  Grand Forks and was here quite  often during the war, being connected with the army medical corps,also  serving some time overseas.  H. ,W.

TO OPEN  ILS  ES  In Fourteen Bi^ Cities  First ��������� Ploardin^ and  Speculation Is Ghar^ed  Before House Committee on Appropriations  A Princeton report says the building of fourteen miles of wagon road,  between the 16   and  30 mile  posts,  on the transprovincial road   will   be  undertaken without  delay,   providing the necessary appropriations can  be  arranged   for.   This   will  afford  transportation facilities for   the   re  turned soldiers who have  msde  ap  plication for land   on   Roach   river.  W.   K.   Gvvyer,   district   engineer,  after   going   over   the   route,    was  waited upon by a   deputation   from  the Great War Veterans' association  and a committee of  Princeton   citizens.  Mr Gwyer said he would  rec  omenend an appropriation of $20,000)  from the government for tbe  carry i  ii g out of this piece of   work.    The  road could Inter   be   made   suitable  for automobile travel   and   form   a  part   of  the   Hope-Princeton highway, which in time   will be   completed.  Engineer Gwyer was assured by  the G.W.V.A. deputation that at  least thirty returned soldiers could  be put on the work as soon as he  was ready to say the word.  igneaux  Is Drowned in  Lake at Nelson  Dr.    Maurice   Vigneaux, a   well  known   Nelson   physician, having  numerous friends in   Grand Forks,  was   accidentally   drowned in   the  'Washington,'"'Aug.  26.���������Further  steps tn bring  down  soaring  pricps  were taken   today   by   the   govern  ment, the war department announc  ing plans for opening on   September  25   in   a   number of cities through  which surplus household   commodities and clothing will be made available to   consumers   throughout   the  country.  Meantime congressional   committees continued consideration of legislation designed to reduce tbe   high  cost of living. This included amend  ments   to   the   food   control act, to  punish    profiteering and boarding,  bills to rogulate cold storage and appropriations  for  the   federal   trade  commission to investigate stocks and  give the information to  tbe   public  Through   the   retail  stores to be  opened by the war   department  the  army's large surplus stock of  socks,  undeaiwear, shirts, raincoats, blankets, gloves, tobacco,  soap  and other  household commodities will be sold.  Consumers in the large cities   where  the   stores   will   be  opened will be  able to purchase over   the   counter,  but the stocks  will   also   be   made  available to persons  in  other   communities through the parcel post.  Price lists are being prepared and  these will be furnished to all post  offices for the convenience of the  public. While no announcement has  yet been made, it is expected the  price,0, like those on the foodstuffs  now being disponed of, will be considerably below the market.  The present plan is to open stores  iu the 14 zone supply cities, Boston,  Saw York, Philadelphia, Baltimore,  Papers were made out last Saturday for the transfer of H. W. Collins' ranch, situate a couple of miles  east of the city and containing 110  acres, to Mrs. Omanney, of London,  England. The price paid was S20,������  000. Mr. Omanney, who was a soldier in the late war, is now in an  hospital in Eugland, but he will  come out here next spring.  The Collins ranch is highly improved, and it is considered a very  good property for fruit growing and  general farming Mr. Collins still  retains his young orchard near Carson.  le iving Miss Car li e wbo is on the  teaching staff of the Trail school,  was ������������������presented with a 14 k. pearl  necklace by-Knox church congregation and choir.

All the members of the city council were present at the meeting on  Monday evening, but no business  of importance or interest was transacted. A few unimp.'-rtuit communications were read, some cjuj-  mittee reports on minor matters  were made, and the salary bylaws  were reconsidered and finally passed.  That iibuut constituted the evening's  work.  J. A. McCallum on Wednesdaay  received a telegram containing the  Had news of the death of his father  in Strange, Out.

FRIDAY, AUGUST 29, 1919  Drunk With Spending  It was a disconcerting speech delivered by  G. L, Lamb at the Kincardine United Farmers of Ontario convention, says the London  Advertiser, yet, it add, it is hard to deny the  truth of his statement: '-My country is drunk,  and our good neighbor is putting out her hand  .to steady us." It is not comfortable, to know  that the ordinary expenditure of the Domin-  on, apart from war debt, has been going ahead  o f revenue for some years.   Mr. Lamb quotes  "Water does not injure automobiles, but sunlight, is bad for them, and since moist air  works in between the layers of cotton they  deteriorate rapidly in a humid atmosphere.  They should be stored in a dry, daik place.  Tlie cost of living in Germany is rapidly  falling. Eggs have got down to $3.90 a dozen.  You can buy a bar of chocolate in Berlin for  $3.75, a cake of imported soap for $4.50, a  pound of coffee for $4.00 or a pound of butter  for $0.25.

V  J  '!  says  'we, must  the  New   York   Sun, which  steady Canada."  As he says, Canada needs to do two things  as soon as possible, retrench in public and  private expenditure, and produce more. Particularly agriculture, our basic industry, must  bo encouraged. By every reasonable means  prices must be cut dowu,especially on the  things the farmer buys.  The farmer wiii find a powerful"weapon  against the forces which are bringing Canada  towards bankruptcy in the .proposed tariff  legislation of the Liberal party's platform. It  is^erfectly true that since 1911 the country  has gqne drunk on borrowed money, but Ylet  us straighten up ourselves without waiting lor  a steadying hand from over the border.  The claim is made that the United' States  gu\ernment's vigorous campaign against  profiteering is having the effect of reducing  the cost of living in that country. If this is  true, the campaign must be acting like a teeter  board, because in this country prices appear  to be stillon the up grade, and if this rule is  to continue, it is to be hoped that prices won't  drop too far on the other side of thr-line. This  may be a selfish wish, but self-preservation is  always the first law of nature.  Although the American bison will probably  never again roam" Hie western plains in great  numbers, it is good to know that the herds .in  the Ame.iican national parks are growing rapidly.

If we are  successful in obtaining the irrigation system  now under consideration, Grand Forks will  before many years be the center of one*of the  best and most prosperous fruit growing and  mixed farming districts in British Columbia.  The main idea at present is to keep a weather  eye on ti[e water.  Health authorities and workers in Canada  should be alive to the danger of insidious  propaganda now being carried on in the name  of religion to emasculate the entire public  health program. The movement is not so in  evidence in the Dominion as in oilier countries, but it is insidiously pursuing its nefarious and deadly work. The most recent manifestation of this 'cult' was the introduction  into the state legislature of Minnesota of a  bill, entitled "To prohibit compulsory medical  examination and treatment, except in certain  cases, without their consent and, in case of  minors, without the consent or their parents  or gaurdians, and prescribing remedies against  and penalties for violation thereof." The bill  failed of passage, but the public are cautioned  against a movement of this kind by which the  physical examination of cases  of c  reduced to |6 an aero; second-class to  $2.50 an acre.  Pre-emption now confined to surveyed lands only.  Records will be gTanted covering only  land suitable for agricultural purposes  and which Is non-timber land.  Partnership pre-emptions abolished,  but parties of not niore than four may  arrange for adjaoent pre-emptions  with joint residence, but each making  necessary improvements on respective  claims.  Pre-emptors must<������ccupy claims for  five years and make Improvements to  value of $10 per acre, including clearing and cultivation of at least 5 acres,  before receiving Crown Grant.  Where pre-emptor in occupation not  less than 3 years,  and has  made pro- r  portionate improvements, he may, be-1  cause of ill-health, or other cause, be!  {-ranted intermediate certificate of improvement and transfer his claim.  .Records without permanent resi- "  dence may be issued, provided applicant makes improvements to extent of  $300 per annum and records same each  year. Failure to make improvements  or record same. will operate as forfeiture. Title cannot be obtained in  less than 5 years, and improvements  of $10.00 per acre, including 5 acres  cleared and cultivated, and residence  of at least 2 years are required.  Pre-emptor holding Crown grant  may record another pre-emption, if he  requires land in conjunction with his  farm, without actual occupation, provided statutory improvements made  and residence maintained on Crown  granted land. v  Unsurveyed areas, not exceeding 20  acres, may be leased as homesites;  title to be obtained after fulfilling residential and improvement conditions.  For grazing and industrial purposes  areas exceeding 640 acres may be  leased by one person or company.  Mill, factory or industrial sites on  timber land not exceeding 40 acres  may be purchased; conditions include  payment of stumpage.  Natural hay meadows inaccessible  by existing roads may be purchased  conditional upon construction of a road  to them.   Rebate of one-half of cost of  Hon. T. D. Pattullo, minister of lands; E  A.

PRE-EMPTORS' FREE GRANTS  ACT.  The scope of this Act is enlarged to  include all persons joining and serving with His Majesty's Forces. The  time within which the heirs or devisees  of a deceased pre-emptor may apply  for title under this Act is extended  from for one year from the death of  such person, as formerly, until one  year after the conclusion of the present  war.

Miss Bennett is a fine actress,  and-'.she, surely knows how to use a telephone, but in this case she had her face  turned away from the transmitter. .Perhaps she was posing, but it might have  suggested to some one that: her' method  was the proper one when telephoning.  When you telephone, talk directly into  the instrument, with your lips an inch or  so from the transmitter. Then you will  have to talk in an ordinary tone, and the  person at. the other end will be able to  hear you distinctly. '--. :  was boss at home   quite. often   was  the private at the front.

"I guess  Pat, you haven't as good hens  here  as we have   in   the   States?"    "Perhaps not," said Pat.   "I'll tell you,"  said the Yankee," "about a  hen   my  mother had.

One of Lloyd George's  Most Amasin^ Stories  The Real Point  In a certain case, where the charge  was the theft of a watch, the evidence was conflicting. As the jury  retired the judge observed that he  would be glad to help in adjusting  any difficulties that might present  themselves to the minds of the jury.  Eleven jurors filed out of the box.  One man who remained wore an expression of extreme perplexity.  Observing <his hesitation the judge  said:  "Would you like to ask me a  question?"  "Yes, your honor," replied the  juror eagerly. "I'd be very glad if  you'd tell me whether the prisoner  really stole the watch."  Probably with all the stories associated with the name of Lloyd  George the following is the best:  During the Welsh disestablishment  jCampaigu the Bishop of St. Asaph  had held a meeting in Flintshire. In  due timethe future prime minister  had a reply meeting. His chairman,  a Welsh deacon, with strong convictions but no sense of humor introduced Lloyd George in the follow  ing terms: "I hafI.tQ.._int_roduce   to  you tonight the member for tbe Car  narvon borough. He hass come here  to reply to what the Bit-hop of St.  Asaph said the other night about  Welsh disestablishment. In my  opinnion, gentlemen, the Bishop of  St. A.-:aph is one of the biggest liars  in creation, but, fcbank God, we haff  a. match for him tonight."
