Ralph  of 87. He" was only 21 at the time of  the charge; and as only S26 were  left in the brigade after it, the link  between tho twentieth century and  tho famous episode could not have  been expected to last much longer.  There is a curious interest about  the last survivors of historical events  The last man who fought at Waterloo was Lieut. Maurice Shea, who  died at Sherbrooke, in Canada, in  1892, aged 98 Older still was the  last who had taken part In the  American War -of Independence,  who, fighting as a lad of 16, died in  1869, at the age of 109. The last  survivor of the Massacre of Cawn-  pore,General SirMowbruy Thomson;  died at Reading in 19J7.  , But the most striking qf these  stories is the well known one'of the  last two survivors of those who signed tbe American Declaration of Independence.

''I regret  that so many of   our  ������good supporters have fallen  in   tbe  conflict.    They all deserved  better  tjreatmedt from the electorate.    It is  to me,  personally,  very gratifying  that the attack* made upon my-personal honor have been so effectually  rebuked by the electorate   of   both  Victoria and the Delta.   It is also a  matter of pride and satisfaction that  all of my colleagues in the ministry  have been re-elected by substantial  majorities.   It is gratifying that the  government has been sustained   by  such a majority that bargaining for  support in the legislature will be unnecessary.        -'" : ���������.-���������'���������'. ������������������'-  ::"To the lady .electorate of the pro*  vince I wish specially to express my  appreciation of their support.

Experience shows some slight change as to  opening polls under special circumstances is necessary.'Let me say here  again that the   names of all persons  not  voting on   Wednesday will be  automatically dropped from tbd list  and that re-registration will be necessary in order to vote at/the next  federal election.  "The government will accept the  mandate of the people, not with ex  ultation, but with the feeling that a  serious duty has been imposed upon  them and they.will at once devote  their energies to strengthening the  weak points of administration and  to a solntion of the many serious  problems which, confront them."  and just before he passed away, at  BUnset, he was heard to say, "Jefferson still survives.". But Thomas'  "Jefferson had died that day at noon.'  A number of robberies of liquor  from 'residents living along the in-,  ternationai  bound<uy   line "in this  district have lately   been reported.;  This   evening ��������� two-, unknown - men  ,in.an automob'ilexlrove up to  Fred  Peters'en's place>and held"him   up  for two'cases of whisky.   They were  going to take more,   but  the owner  objected,-and in the fight which followed  Mr.  Petersen   was  hit over  the head with a bottle by one of the  men and severely injured. The men  were finally  scared  away by man  who'happened to come along,  and  who fired a gun to firighten   them.  They  made .a  hasty retreat across  the line. Mr. Petersen is now in the  hospital in this city.     Today (Saturday) a suspect was arrested, and  at the preliminary hearing he was  bound over for trial.   '"'.  Victoria, Dec. 6���������While Premier  Oliver has not as yet made, an announcement, it is taken for granted  in local Liberal circles that he will  resign his Victoria seat, retaining  his seat in the Delta riding. By his  resignation a by-election will be  necessary, and Henry C. Hall, the  defeated member on the Liberal  ticket at Wednesday's election, will  bethe candidate.  It is expected that the premier's  resignation; will take place early in  the'Besgion and that the by election  will be held at once.  , Chairman Henniger and Trustees  Mrs. Kingston, J. D. McLeod. Jeff  Davis and T. Padgett were present  at a meeting of the school board  last night."  The application of Principal CarJ  penter and-that of his assistant.Mrs.'  Steeves, for ' an increase in salary,  was referred to a committee to be  dealt with later. Tbe board took  the view that these teachers should  serve the term out at the present  salary, in view of the*fact that they  had been engaged only about ��������� three  months ago. ..,_ ,  A delegation, was present from the  teaching staff of   the   public school  in connection withrappl cations, for  increasedsalaries. In requesting, increases they quoted salaries paid  in  other schools in  the interior-of the  province. The delegation was composed   of Principal  Glaspell,  Miss  McEwen and Miss Hall.   After considering   the' matter,^ .the    board  granted  the   following     increases:  Principal   Glaspell,   from SI 890 to  $2000 a year; Miss McEwen, from  $1100'to   $1200:, Misses O'Brien.,  iStuart,   Homer,--Hall  and Naylor,  from-.81000  to ,$1100.   Tnese-in-  creases become effective on the first  of January.    E.  L. Kidd was en  gaged as teacher for Division IV at  a salary of $1100.  -   Owing to the increase  in pupils,  the board   decided to open another  room after the first of the yet?r, this  making   the   tenth   in  the  public  school. The secretary was instructed  to advertise for a teach er at ah initial salary of $1000.  j! The resignation of   Wm. T. Reid  as   assistant  teacher   in; the   high  school was accepted, and the  secretary, was   instructed   to   advertise  for  a   successor   to   Mr.   Reid, his  duties to commence with the opening of school after the holidays.  j The tender for coal  was awarded  to the City Cartage company at $13  per ton for Taber coal.   .   v  The secretary was   instructed   to  advertise for 50 cords of green wood.

According to the best records  available, he had lived in the same  locality more than one hundred  years.  Yellow Sky did not like to wear  the ordinary suits of modern days.  Instead, summer and winter, he  garbed himself in a capacious overcoat.  'In an interview in .Vancouver this  week, E. C. Skinner, general   mana  ger of the .

Prices  to  the grower  had  been  from   40c to  60cq higher this  year than   last,  but jvith the crop  yield, which was not more than   45  oi   50   per cent of .last year's, the  farmer  would  scarcely - more  than  break even on this 'season's operations.'   Conditions   we're such   this  year, he   said, that' practically  the  entire apple crop move'd to the prairie and England, little, with the exception of   crabapples,   finding an  outlet   in  the  United States.    The  fruitman   added   that   there     was  heavy overproduction'of   onions in  the Okanagan,' arid a considerable  portion   of .which   would   not   be  moved.

Al Petersen,'who is now located  at St. Marie, Idaho, is visiting  friends in the city this week.  Tne past season has been a very  satisfactory one according to tho ro  turns made by the packing houses and  canneris, all off which have an increase in shipments over last year.  The B. C. Growers, Limited, report  the shipment of approximately thirty-  sevea thousand boxes of apples and  pears, forty-five hundred crates of  peaches, five thousand crates of tomatoes, eighteen hundred crates of plums  and prunes and eight hunhren crates  of cherries.  The Keromeos Packing Co., Ltd,  shipped about 50,000 package of fruit  of all-kinds and 90.000 arates of tomatoes. Jn addition to this the cannery connected with their packing  house putout 1C.500 cases of canned  tomatoes and 3,100 cases of conned,  fruits of various kinds.  Tho Dominion Cantors, B.C., Ltd.,  shipped 10,500 cases of tomatoes-und  have a similar number of cases on  hand for future.shipment They also -  canned and shipped 800 cases of corn.  This makes approximately a 34.00.0  cases pack.  These returns show an output'of  115,000 packages of fruit and canned  goods, from Keremcos this season, a  lar������o increase over lust year in .spite  of the fact that it was an oil'season  for several of the largest orchards.  Another factor which reduced the out  put very considerably was tho unusual  spell of cool wet weather in September which held hack tomatoes and  corn until so late that about forty per  cent wore rtined in tho fields by  frost.

C  OFFICE:    COLUMBIA AVENUE AND LAKE STREET.  FRIDAY, DECEMBER 10, 1920/  There seems to be an impression prevailing  in certain quarters of our city that onr local  contemporary is indulging in a great deal of  unnecessary talk about the spoiled ballots in  last week's provincial election. The new Elections act is quite plain on this point, and the  returning officer is familiar with the law. Does  our-:contemporary imagine that it is a higher  authorty on the interpretation of the act than  that officer or the the government which passed  it? Or does it think that its influence is great  enough to induce the returning officer to count  >otcs that should be legally rejected? If the  paper has become possessed of either of these  ideas, it might as well stop talking at once.  As The Sun said last week, we believe most  of.the rejected ballots were spoiled intentionally by persons who did want to vote foreither  candidiate and who exercised the franchise  merely to keep their names on the voters' list.  The fact that very few ballots were spoiled in  either the prohibition referendum or in the rer  cent by eloctiou would.seem to bear our this  supposition.  eaten by a rat. They then begin an active life  in the rat's stomach, and appear to.,have the  power of setting up cancerous tumors. As this  is the first time any one has been able to-start  a-cancer de novo, thevalne of this- investigation is enormous.--'Though there would seem  to be no doubt that this worm is" the cause of  human cancer, it is by, no means certain that  other types may not exist, having life cycles  of a similar kind. --Thus a factory infested with  cockroaches may conceivably be a great danger, especially if food is handled therein. All  new buildings should be rendered vermin  proof, and, wherever possible, existing build  ings shonld also be made safe in this respect,  Concrete floors and smooth walls prevent the  intrusion of cockroaches,and an absence of un  protected foodstuffs deprives them of any in  ducement to stay.  A Wonderful Future  The opposition in this ridiug seem to have  implicit faith that the counting of the absentee  vote will give their candidate a safe majority  over the government candidath. We fail to se'e  on what basis of reasoning they can possibly  arrive at this conclusion. It is surmised that  most of the absentee votes were cast by elec-  torsfrom outside the city, and Mr. Henniger  had big majorities at every poll n the riding  with the "exception of Grand Forks. If the  same ratio is kept up with the absentee vote  Mr. McKie's slender lead wilLnot only vanish feut Mr; "Henniger will be elected by a  safe majority.  It  is doubtful  if any modern government  would be satisfactory to the Kaslo Kootenaian  Its editor seems to have forgotten that when  some of his old-time favorite statesmen were  in power the country was so prosperous that  most of the Canadians preferred to live in the  United States.   Give the  present  generation  for having some sense.    Today conditions are  such that Canadians are proud of their  country and are content  to  remain   at home, and  the tide  of immigration is  from the south.  These changes must have been brought about  by modern governments and  modern   statesmen.  Canada's magnificent scenery comprises one  of her proudest  possessions.    While such a  possession should not be appraised pnrely from  a commercial standpoint, it is nevertheless a  conservation policy of the most practical char-  actor to take steps to assure that this natural  resource be administered as an economie asset  In so doing,  the  Dominion  Parks  Branch  merits recognition as a very substantial factor  assisting'to maintain the solidity of Canada's  financial standing. It is.in addition, a foremost  agency in providing sanctuaries, in administering game laws and in otherwise  contributing  to the practical programme essential  to prevent the depletion of our wild life resources,  Recently Prof. Febeger, Copenhagen, Den  mark, discovered that the rats caught in a  curtain manufacturing plant had cancer of the  stomick. Later, this plant was found to be infested with cockroaches. Further investigation  showed that these jinsec.ts were hosts of a  worm hitherto unknown to science. A series  of experiments demonstrated that the worm  lays its egg in the body of the rat. These are  passed out and eaten by the cockroaches. In  the cockroaches the eggs hatch and the young  worms remain dormant until the cockroach is  A word as to the outlook for Canada.    No  one will believe that we shall not'have unsettled periods and seasons of commercial depression, that progress will be even and uninterrupted, and that" we shall not be affected by  conditions and events in other countries.. We  have learned that a great war shakes the ends  of the earth and that no nation can be a world  unto itself.   But  it is  believed  that in  the  next quarter of a century we shall have not  only the greatest  expansion in the history of  Canada but in the history of the-continent.  There are men still living in the UnitedJStates  who have seen its population grow from 25-,  000,000 to, 10.5,000,000. Moreover that country, had to depeud upon the natural birth rate  and immigration from Europe. If you say that  the United  States  had varieties of climate  which we do not possess, we answer that the  south never attracted   immigration and that  the growth has been chiefly under  conditions  of climate and through the exploitation of just  such resources as we have in Canada. We will  draw from a Enrope in the throes of recreation and from a neighboring country of over  one hundred millions of people, of whom hundreds   of  thousands in the years ahead will  overflow into Canada 'end assure a population  beyond a ratio the United States ever knew  and  beyond the dream of any optimist in the  infancy of confederation. The prospect is as  sobering as it is alluring, for tremendous problems lie before Canadian statesmen, and there  is supreme necessity that we should have regard to the quality of immigrants who   will  come to us from any and every country and  protect as best we may"the character and dig-'  jnity of our institutions.,If the stream runs too  freely we must develop grave social and political evils, and  one can not but think that  there is a flavor of inhnmanity in deportation  as a method of escape from the inevitable consequence of our own want of vision and vigilance. It is doubtful if we now,  or ever have  had,  any adequate machinery for handling  immigrants with sympathy and wisdom.   Primarily, but perhaps not exclusively, we should  endeavor to put people on tho land, but the  land should be chosen  with knowledge and  discrimination, the new settlers should have  all necessary training and supervision during  the first years of occupany, and they should  have all possile protection ugainst mistakes in  methods and failure in results.    For failure in  selection- of immigrants or in the system of  settlement means impoverished colonies in the  towns and cities, a lower average of citizenship, and an excess of incompetent arid shiftless labor.  Adequate supervision of immigration   may   be onerous and costly, but there  could be no more sounder national-investment  than that which produces a happy and prosperous  people.   There is need for closer cooperation between the federal department of  immigration and tOe provincial governments to  provide such accurate information regarding  farms available for purchase in older Canada  as is afforded regarding opportunies and con-  which may not require defence the immigration policy of the Federal Goverment has been  sectional. Henceforth it should  be national.  Unquestionably many British and American  settlers could be placed on improved farms in  Ontario and the Eastern Provisoes under conditions and in surroundings which would ensure pleasant social relations and the certain  prospect of a decent return upon their investment.  The Unknown  Dead  England has many noble -monuments but only one national' sbrine.  Westminster' Abbey "is the heart of  the British nation. The spot on  which it stands has been hallowed  by religious associations since Roman times, and the present building  has seen more solemn and impressive ceremonies than any other  building in the world. There the  sovereigns of the empire are crowned, and there are held the funeral  services that mark the finis of their  little chapters of history. There  many of them are buried, and  thither, to foliow them for the last  time, are borne the ashes of the  great dead from every field of human achievement.  With that sense of what is fit  ting and that instinct for spiritual  values that have always been the  great strength of the nation, says'  the Youth's Companion, Great  Britain on Armistice day laid another body in Westminster Abbey;  not, this time, the body of one  whose name is familiar .throughout  the earth and whose .achievements  lor his race have been recognized  and set down to his honor, but one  whose name is known to no one  living, and never will be known; the  body of an anidentified British soldier who fell in battle, and whose remains were brought home to his  native land from France.  The place of burial had been prepared and a cenotaph was covered  with a veil. Just a} 11 o'clock���������the  hour when the firing ceased two  years ago���������the veil parted, and for  two minutes all England" stood un������  covered and silent. The solemn service gave expression to what no  what no man would have ventured  to put into word8,and the Unknown  Dead was one of the immortals of  England.  No more beautiful or spiritually  significant tribute was ever poid to  human dust. It was the public ae  ���������knowledgement of a nation of the  [debt it owes to those whose services  by their very magnitude made any  payment impossible. It was also a  personal acknowledgment to every  family from which a member remains still missing and nnaccounted  for that- their country recognizes  their sacrifice and is grateful and  will not forget; for there is not one  such family that can not and will  not comfort itself with the thought  that its own dear dead is that unknown soldier of the Abbey.  Forever unknown, forever ' mute,  he will be known wherever men use  his mother tongue; and to generations yet unborn he will speak of  patriotism and duty and sacrifice  more eloquently than ever English  man spoke before.  ���������������*  for Rer  this Ghristmas  Giving Community Plate seems almost  selfish at times���������there is nearly as much  plessure in giving as receiving.

A Thrifty Book Lover  ]  There   are   singular  discounts al-  ' owed in the book trade that on one  ��������� occasion were   happily illustrated by  Mark   Twain.    One   day   while the  humorist wa3 connected with a publishing house he went to a   bookcase  and, picking up a volume, asked   the  ' price.    He then suggested that, as a  publisher, he was entitled to  50   per  cent discount. To this the   clerk   assented.  "As 1 am also the author of the  .book," said Mark Twain, "it would  appear that I am again entitled to 50  per cent discount."  The cierk bowed. He could not  "deny it.  "And as I am a personal friend of  the proprietor," Mark modestly conT  tinuod, "I presume you will allow me.  the usual 25 per cent discount? If so,  I think I may as well take the book.  What's the tax?"  ' The clerk took out his pencil and  figured industriously. Then he said  with great obsequiousness, "As near  as I can calculate, we owe you the  book and about 37������ cents:"  A Little More   Information Needed  The suddenness with which the  great war broke out, and the confusion of mind that overtook persons  who were not in a position to follow  closely the course of events day by  day, is amusingly shown by this story  told in Evrrybodyls Magazine.

COHEN  A few years ago any complex dental operation meant an expenditure  too great to be considered by any  but the wealthy. Dontistry has  passed from tho realm of luxury to  necessity, being marked by a gradual reduction of cost with steady  increase of efficiency.  Today it is not a question of  your being able to afford tho cost of  efficient dental work. Rather ask  yoursolf the question, "Can you  afford to do without it?"  My moderate charges are equitably, based to afford me a fair profit  only for my skill and work. I use  nothing but the best high-gradt  lasting materials. And should you  dread a dental operation, Remember my Well-Known Promise  "If It Hurts, Don't Pay Me"  A welcome hand is extended to  all out-of-town patients, and we  invite you to call and inspect Spokane's large, modern, scientific dental office, whether or not you are  in need of dentistry at this time.

It is an old  saying that a man is known  by the company he keeps.  When you join the ranks of  the advertisers you join the  ranks of the biggest and  most successful merchants  and manufacturers in the  world.  How many large concerns  can you name in any large  . city m the country? Name  ihem and you will notice  that all are big advertisers  and all are leaders in their  lines. Ask your friends to  name the most successful  merchants they know in the  big cities, and in each case  the name ot a great advertiser will be mentioned.  The same rule is true of  smaller citiej1 and towns.  The successful merchants  are the advertisers. The  advertiser stamps himself as  one having confidence in  himself and his wares, as  one proud of his calling and  seeking publicity and the  test of patronage.  4$  _^c THE   SUN,   GRAND   FORKS,   B.

YIELD OF BUSH FRUITS  'At the Central Experimental farm  the   average   yield  of the Herbert  jaspberry for two years on one row  ninety   feet  in   length .was'atthe  rate of 205 bushels per acre. Under  field   conditions,    cultivated   rasp������  berries   produce from   50   to   100  bushels of crop per acre,  according  to the season.    Gooseberries   at   40  pounds per bushels yielded   at  the  rate of 909 bushels to the acre.   Red  currants gave   202   bushels to the  acre in one instance and 409 in   an*  other, These figures are taken from  a new builetin issued by *the  Ex-^  perimental farms at Ottawa on the  subject of "Bush Fruits."   In  this  pamphlet   the  currant, gooseberry;  raspberry,   blackberry,    dewberry,  and loganberry are treated  in such  a   way  as to   make   clear the best  practice iu their cultivation  and to  understand the merits of the different worthy varieties.    It is pointed  out   that  the   ourrant, gooseberry  and raspberry grow wild   almost   if  not quite to the Arctic circle. The  treatise is the resuit of experiments  carried   on   at  the Central'Experi-  meatal farm and the widely separa~  ted branch farms and stations. This  publication,  which   is    designated  Builetin No. 94 and is  available at  the publications branch of   the' department of   agriculture,   contains  also a treatise on  common diseases  of bush fruits and the insects affecting' them, with the methods of control. .

Look for the  Big  Boot.  :' .It is to be anticipated that before  Biany years have elapsed almost  every farm in the Canadian prairie  provinces will have its silo. The  growth of the dairy industry would  naturally bring this condition,about1  In course of time, but the movement;  Is being expedited by the success'  ���������farmers are having in growing sunflowers. Small fields of from three  to thirty acres have been planted in  .various parts of the three prairie  provinces of Canada. Tho yields are  proving more satisfactory than the  ���������farmers generally dared to hope, and  'each acre yiolds on an average from  'fifteen to thirty tons of ensilage.  Many farmers have erected pilos  on their farms during the summor to  tako caro of this crop, but most of  them have undcr-ostlmatod their requirements and will have more crop  than they can put In their silos.  Sunflower silage is duo for a more  extensive trial this winter than it  has had before. Tho results in previous years have been very satisfactory but only comparatively few  farmers have grown tho crop for ullage previous to this year- If in its  more extensive use the crop proves  to be as satisfactory as it has already proved in the few cases where  it has been tried, it is safe to say  that in a few years the farm without  a silo will be an exception in Western Canada. .< j,.,.,,, vJ(.

Similar plans are being made in  other parts of Western Canada, and  the already rapidly growing dairy  industry promises to grow much  faster with the general acceptance of  the sunflower as a silage crop.
