T. McCallum in the city ball on Monday  night. After listening to evidence  up to midnight the case was rt is -  missed. W. B. Cochrane appeared  for the plaintiff and J. H. Ryley for  the defendant.  The Sun staff has been confined  to hie bed with the grip duriDg the  past couple of days.  It took to 9 o'clock to secure a  quorum at the regular meeting of the  . city council on Tuesday evening.  Mayor Acres and Aid. Harknese,  McDonald and Schnitter were present.  Mrs Feek addressed the council.  She wanted a fence removed from  a property near her place  so that thesnowplow could keep the  snow off the sidewalk. The council  instructed the board of works to  keep the sidewalk clean and recommended to the incoming council  that it take up the matter of the removal of the fence.  The past month's accounts were  ordered to be paid.  Aid. Harkness,. acting chairman  of the finance committee, recom*.  mended.that in view of the fact that  the poolrooms and the picture show  had been closed for a considerable  . time "on account of .the influenza', ;a  proportionate amount of their license  fees be refunded to them on the 31st  of December  The matter of establishing a  government   aided    library   was    dis  cussed, but the question was referred  to the next council.  Tbe matter of donating buflding  lots that tbe city might have available to returned soldiers along the  lines that the government is aiding  the returned men, was discussed,  and the council placed itself on  record as being in favor of donating  building lets for this purpose to  bona tide settlers, and a committee  consisting of the mayor and the city  clerk was appointad to look into the  matter of what lots were available,  and to draft an agreement governing the donating of the choice of the  available lots to soldiers belonging  in the city and district, on condition  that they make their homes here.  A resolution was adopted setting  nomination day for the civic-election on Monday, January 13, and  the city clerk was named as returning officer. The following deputies  were chosen: T. A. Wright, Wm.  Frakes, S. T. Hull, F. R. S. Barlee,  D. McCallum, P. H. Donaldson, C.  D, PearRon.  A warm discussion occurred between Aid. Harkness and Aid.  Schnitter regarding the water at the  Spokane roundhouse. It was claimed that it was  still   being supplied,  Robert Donald, who recently re  tired from the editorship of-the London Daily Chronicle, is a Scotsman  who began life as a young reporter,  made stjady headway, and presently as editor of thejMunicipalJJouroal  in London showed a grasp of public  affairs and a capacity in administration which'eventually took him to  the editorial chair of the Daily  Chronicle. He had a wide experi  ence in his younger days, for he  served in Edinburgh, London, New  York and Paris. For a generation  the Daily Chronicle had been a  famous property. He had as his  friends philosophers, statesman,  authors, and the captains of industry It is safe to say that no British  editor in recent times had so wide a  range of respect from leaders in the  various fields of thought aud action.  HONOR ROLL  Have Taken Part in the  Great War  Herbert Adams Gibbons, author  of many important current works,  has been making a speaking tour  among the munition workers of  central' France. wHis". euhject'' was'  American ideals and America's par  ticipation in tbe war, and he talked  in the course of the tour to audiences totaling about 40,000 workers  Samuel Merwin, the novelist is  quoted as saying: "My professional  goal is to learn as much as possible  of the business of writing. I would  like, too, before I die, to succeed in  depicting one or two or even three  or more real characters in fiction. It  would be a great privilege."  ....   Who Told You That?  The band of a famous English regi-  ment was playing at a Yanks' camp  somewhere in Blighty. The soldiers  were walking round and round, as we  do round a . bandstand. An English  visitor was enormously impressed by  a handsome N.CO., who bore him  self like a young god and wore a uniform which would have made a Sack-  ville street cutter feel he knew nothing of smart tailoring.  "Who is that N.C.O," asked the  visitor, "dressed like a dandy."  "He," answered the American private, "is my top-sergeant���������the gink  who owns the war."  fruit takes place, providing they are  absolutely sound when placed in  storage.  The losses in storage amount annually to many thonsands of barrels,  simply because apples showing blemishes of. one kind, or another are  stored with sound ones. The apple  scab is one of the most earnmon agents  Will Perpetuate the Mem- g^g^rise. to  decay of fruit kept in  ory of   Employees   Who , 8tora#e-  As lonS as. the   temperature  of the cold storage is kept low-���������  about 32 deg. F. or close by���������no rot  is likely to show; But should such  apples reach the vendor or the consumer, the trouble will begin as soon  as the temperature changes. Any injured or scabby surface of an apple is  quickly invaded by the common fungi,  such as pink rot, blue mould, etc.,  and once these fungi commence their  destructive work, a barrel of apples  is often destroyed more quickly than  it could be eaten by an average sized  family. As soon as the rot is observed  in a barrel, prompt action is called  for. Out with all the apples; throw the  bad ones right out, save what can be  saved of partly spoiled fruit for immediate use, wipe the sound ones with  a-dry cloth and store them in a well  ventilated but cool place, examining  them from time to timef* 'One rptten  apple in a barrel will start all the  others to rot in no time.  From the above it will be seen  that, while improper storage conditions���������and once in the hands of the  consumer a barrel of apples will rarely find proper, i.e., cool, well ventilated, but particulorly, uniform tem  peratures���������have some influence in  starting the rot, if.the apples are in  good sound condition when placed in  storage, the consumer will not so  likely be the loser���������and he generally  is. The time will come when the consumer will be allowed to deduct from  his bills the losses which are due to  ���������the negligence of others, particularly  at-a time when high prices prevail.  The  Granby   Consolidated  Mining,  Smelting  &   Power  company is preparing an honor  roll  to  perpetuate the memory of its employees who have  taken part in   the  war.    The  roll is in the form of an  oak  tablet, 48 inches high and  30  wide. On the top scroll,carved  in relief, is   a shield in which  are  intertwined tfre  flags^-of  Great Britain, Canada and^the  United States,  floating over  the Maple Leaf as the national emblem of Canada.    The  sides of the tablet consist of  Corinthian columns and in the  center is painted a replica of  of the picture   "Banners    of  Empire." Behind is'the  cabinet in which will be deposited  in handsome morocco binding  the  volume which   will  be a  record of the   company's employees who have enrolled in  the  national  service for'the  war.   The   memorial   will  be  placed in the  head offices  of  the company at Vancouver.

He said he was preparing a pronouncement of this  matter for the cabinet.  "lam not sure that Great  Britain will not have to say to  ithe allies at the peace conference," he said, " 'We shall be  quite satified with such a  definition of freedom of tbe  seas as will enable the British  navy, in the nnfortunate event  of future wars, to do exactly  what the British navy, aidad  by the American navy, has  been doing for the paet eight  teen months.'  "America has rendered brilliant service in the cause of  civ'lization, and Great Britain  is bound to approach the conference with a determination  to concede everything possible to American sentiment  and American views, having  regard for national security  and existence of the empire."

The Grand Fokks Sun,  Phone 101R ��������� Grand Forks, B. C.  OFFICE:    COLUMBIA AVENUE AND LAKE STREET.  FRIDAY, DFCEMBER 13, 1918  Portland, Oregon, has wearied   of treating  the inflncuza scourge as a joke, and in future  wftl put  the  disease  on the  same   basis as  smallpox.    All  municipalities   might follow  Portland's example in the interest of the public health.   The disease, which, it is  claimed,  is nothingiess than the black plague, has now  been in this country  for  five or six  months,  and there are no  signs of an abatement of its  spread.   It now covers the continent. Whether  it is called by its real name or a weaker one.is  immaterial.   But  the   fact remains  that it is  more deadly than smallpox, and it  should   be  hedged in by stricter health regulations.  The statement has been made in London  that during the war the British navy carried,  by means of its transports, 16,000,000 fighting,  men, and the casualties amounted to one in  every. 10,000. The safety of the legions of  overseas and American troops has rested with  the navy. That and the mercantile marine  through their vigilance and efficiency made the  t-ictories of the past year possible in France.  They have fed and clothed the army in Sa-  loniki and have kept England so well supplied  with food and raw materials that no really  ���������serious lack has been felt.   ^  tion to unsanitary and wretched conditions,  especially in the^larger cities, that must be  eradicated. Visiting nurses and others engaged in, relief work found so called homes  where hygiene was as foreign as it is among  the Eskimos. And the number of such homes  was astonishingly large. Already steps have  been taken injsome places to right these conditions, but it is a difficult task to reach the  root of such evils. Education is, undoubtedly,  one of the best and surest remedies���������education in the art of home-making, in the need  for community, industrial and personal cleanliness, in the causes and prevention of disease.  It may be v a long process, but conditions  should be such that individuals who insist on  remaining in ignorance of these matters, or  who disregard them: should be punished, because they are a menace to the health and well-  being of society.      . .    .  Agencies, such as the medical profession,  the St. John Ambulance association, the local  councils of women, or other organizations of  men ,or women which have at . heart these  problems of public health should be encouraged to renew and increase their efforts in  spreading a knowledge of home hygiene and  preventative medicine generally.  <r  OPTICAL GOODS  ==^  We are carrying a splendid line of eyeglass  and spectacle mountings, both in the rimless and rimmed goods  ^  A. D. MORRISON im^Z^m  J  TRY A CAN OF WHALE  The demand for war memorials has revived  interest in  monumental-brasses,   which have  been so universally  adopted in  England for  memorial purposes as to be looked upon as a"  distinctively English form of .art.    There is at  present on the top floor of the  Victoria and  Albert museum a collection of rubbings from  brasses dating  from  the   thirteenth century  English memorials to the present day.   Tnese  studies are grouped as military,  ecclesiastical,  civil and other costumes. There are over 2400  studies in the museum collection, anv of which  may-be seen on application.   A complete list  with 176 illustrations is on sale for 2s 6d and  will be helpful to those planning  memorials.  An example of modern brasses is taken  from  an "Eleanor" cross that  is being  erected  by  the village of Sledmere, York, in  memory  of  officers and men who have fallen.  TO INFORM THE PEOPLE  Baltimore publishes a Municipal Journal  every two weeks for the purpose of giving the  public definite and detailed information about  the operations of city -government. It is  brightly written, well edited and attractively  illustrated. The practice is one which could  be followed to advantage in Canadian cities.  In a democracy, the basis of efficient government is a well-informed electorate.  "Mdam, I would suggest that you try a can  of whale," said the grocer. "You will have  heard that 100 per cent of the sockeye and  red spring salmon and 75 per cent of the co-  hoes of the Pacific coast: have been requisitioned by the . British government," he continued, ".so that salmon is hard to uet and  even harder to pay for. But whale meat is  just as���������"  - "Oh, please don't try to tell me it is just as  good as salmon, I did so want to get some nice  canned sockeye salmon. It. is always so good."  "Well, I am very s<;r;y.madam, but-it is not  to be for a few days at least. I was going to  say that canned whale resembles, and some  people think it is just as good as tender, lean  beefsteak. We are having quite a demand for  it. Thank you, madam; I will send up two  cans. It is only 25. cents a can."  And so this Boston grocer found another  customer for Canadian canned whale. Till recently, the canning of the flesh of this great,  warm-blooded ocean mammal was looked  upon as a cfoubtful experiment. 'But during  the past season it,was sold by the carload in  Boston, Philadelphia, Chicago and other cities  of the United States.  "Perhaps Dame Fashion has had a hand in  popularizing many such hitherto, despised  foods," mused the grocer.  But the threatening famine in Europe was  probably a more important reason.  rand Forts Transfer Company  DAVIS 8 HANSEN, Proprietors  City Baggage and General Transfer  Goal and Wood.For Sal  Office at R.
