Mayor Acres and all the aldermen  were present at the regular meeting  of the city council on Monday evening.  A letter, from C. A. S. Atwood  stated this would probably be the  last year that he would be able to  furnish the city with shade trees at  retail,and that now was an opportune  time for the city to buy for spring  planting. Referred Jo the cemetery  and parks committee.  A letter from W. 0. Miller, divisional superintendent of the OP.  Restated that he required more  time'in which to reply more fully to  the council's last communication.  A communication from the secretary of the western branch oi the  Canadian Manufacturers' associa  tion, Winnipeg, asked the endorsa*  tion by the council-of a resolution  adopted by the association which  urged greater production in Canada,  both of agricultural products and  ��������� manufactured goods, as a remedy  for the present high rate of exchange between the United States  and this country. The, resolution  cited the fact that the-present-rate  of exchange is costing the Canadian  people $60,0U0,000 a year. On motion, the couucil endorsed the reso-*  lution.  The report of Chief' Norris, of the  fire department, gave a list of the  fires and the fire losses during the  pasr year. He stated that the department needed some more hose,  and that an auto fire truck would  add greatly to the efficiency of the  department. The report1 was approved and the recommendations  were referred to the water and light  committee.  ���������A letter from   Mr. Nystrom   was  ordered filed. ���������*-  The auditor read the financial  statement of the city for 1919,which  was approved. As a supplementary  report, he stated that the various in  dustries���������farming, fruit, growing,  mining, smelting, lumbering, etc.���������  of the district for the year showed a  t)tal production valued at over two  millions dollars.  On motion, the clerk was instructed to enforce the light rates collec*  iions,and he was authorized to have  the service cut off when parties become 60 days in arrears.

The editorial in part says:  k:  "We ask,city workers to ponder a  moment what might happen if the  farmers should do what the workers  are doing���������demauding shorters  hours and higher.pay. The farmers  are their own- bosses,--bo-they-would,  not have'to quarrel'with anybody.  They could: hold out on strike until  they got = good- and ready, for they  can feed themselves.  - "You working fellows, suppose  for a momant that the farmers  adopted the eight-hour day? It  would cut down.production at 'least  half. Suppose they also set a price  on their labor and their ' products  based on an eight hour basic scale?  Where would you get your food?  Only the rich could'.buy itat all, for  the price would be prohibitive to  men on strike. If the cost of living  is too hign now, how will lessened  production affect it? How will in  creased cost of production bring  down prices?  .'���������If youcity workers expect the  farmers to go on feeding you at the  old price you have got to get back  to work at the old wage and make it  possible for the farmer to buy cheaper so he can produce cheaper. This  is not a one-sided game. It takes  two to play it,and if you city fellows  quit, don't get sore if you go hungry  soon; Either the farmers must do as  you are doing, shorten the hours  and demand higher pay,or else they  must ieugthen the hours and produce more without more pay.  "The farmers have been patient  with you. When they lose their patience, look out. If they quit, who  is going to feed you? What city  workers have in common with farmers is not so much political as eco  nonnc. What are you going to do  about it?"  In many countries of Europe food  production this year was half the  usual amount, because farmers could  not plant the average crops. Uelief  societies ere now trying to save   the  Frank Moore, oi Saskatchewan, Purchases the  Property Formerly Own  ed by the Late Dr.  Averill  The fine home of the late Dr. G.W.  Averill was this week sold to Frank  Moore, of Saskatchewan. The bouse,  which is: one of the finest in the  valley, was built by the late Dr.  Averill regardless of expense and  comprises eleven charming rooms.  There is also a fine stable, with a.  dancing hall on the second storey,  and other buildings in keeping with  the residence. The grounds include  some thirty acres of excellent farm  ing land, with: about one hundred  beariug fruit trees of all kinds. The  new owner, Mr. Moore, and family  will take possession of the property  at once. The consideration is said  to have been in the neighborhood  of $15,000, the sale being made  through the real estate office of S.  T.Hull.  BUYING BEES IN  GOMBLESS PACKAGES  [experimental farms note ]  During the past few years a popular way to make good the winter  losses of bees, and even to make a  start in beekeeping, has been to  purchase a pound or two of bees in  spring shipped from a specialist in  the Southern slates, and more recently by parcel post.  From experimental shipments received at the Central Experimental  Farm, Ottawa, during the past four  years, and from enquiries among  beekeepers in other places who have  received them, it can be said that  this method of obtaining bees shouid  be followed with caution.'  At Ottawa the best results were  obtained in 1917, when three two-  pound lots with young fertile queens  arrived by express in good condition from an experienced shipper in  Alabama after having been seven  days on the journey, on May 9, a  week before the honey flow from  dandelion commenced. Tnese bees,  on arrival, were given combs containing   a   little  old   honey.    The  parcel post have   occasionally   been  rpported.  Moreover, the journey often injures the queens, so that they are  liable to do poor work, or to die soon  after arrival This misfortune was  mainly instrumental in spoiling the  results in 1919 from six lots received in,good condition bv parcel  post from the same '"'.bieedef.'V.'They  together produced only 282 pounds  of honey,while each wintered colony  gave 187 pounds, two of the queens  having died a. day or two after arrival, aud two more having been  superseded a week or two later. A^  short breeding season . before the  honey'flow contributed to these  poor results.  The  sender, owing to  a   rush  of  orders   or unexpected   unfavorable  weather, may be unable   to  supply  the bees until the summer, after the  season has gone, aha one or two in  stances   have   occurred  of bee diseases   having   been.: introduced' by  bees from the south.  However, pos  tal  regulations ^are   now in force in  both countries forbidding   the   bees  sent   by   parcel   post to .be  accom  panied by  combs, which  will   help  to remove the transmission of   foul  brood.  So great has been the demand for  these southern bees(io recent springs  that    inexperienced    dealers   have  arisen   who   have  shipped them in  boxes   unsuitably   constructed  and  provisioned,   and   sometimes! with  too many bees in the  box, resulting  in-heavy loss.    A few unprincipled'  dealers   have   also, appeared' who  have sent old bees or too large a pro  portion of drone bees, or   virgin  in  stead of fertile queens. One may ex  pect, however, that as the   trade  iD  these southern  bees  becomes   more  stabilized, and after   the transportation employees become  accustomed  to recognize the very perishable na  ture of this merchandiss,.the   losses  will be less frequent.  On the whole, we would advise  beginners to buy bees locally in  preference to getting them early  from the south, particularly because  in the latter case combs and expert  c-ire are needed. We also think that,  at the present high price of bees and  unfavorable rate of exchange with  the United States, those who have  bees pay better to make from their  own bees by breeding queens and  prepare them with extra good care  for the winter than to depend on  purchasing bees from the south in  spring. Those who wish to try the  experiment of buying bees from the  south for the first time, could pro  tect themselves by ordering only a  few packages and noting in what  condition they arrive before ordering  SCHOOL BOA  S tanding Gorami ttees Ap -  pointed���������Teachers' Association Asks for Increase in Salaries  The following trustees were present at the meeting of the school  boaid this week: Davis, Hennieger,  Kingston and Padgett..  The board appointed E. C. Hen-  niger chairman. J.-B. McLeod was  appointed to fill the vacancy on the  board. Mr. McLeod, being present,  accepted .the appointment.  The chairman appointed the following committees:  Finance���������McLeod and Davis.  School Management���������Kingston  and Davis.  Buildings���������Padgett and  McLeod.

In the matter of-a secretary,it svas  the desire of the board that the city  clerk should act as secretary to the  trustees, providiug satisfactory arrangements can be made with, the  council.  The board received resolutions  from the secretary of the Grand  Forks Teachersr'vassociation requesting that the salaries .be increased  and a schedule adopted. Principal  Glaspell, being present, made e personal appeal on his own behalf, informing the board that with the  present high cost of living it was impossible to mainsaiu himself and his  family on his present salary. Figures were supplied by him showing  that higher salaries for schools of  similar standing were paid elsewhere. The question was referred  to a committee to bring a report.  Any increases granted will be made  retroactive to January I,  1920.  spring   having   been   favorable  for  breeding, they quickly developed'more. It is advisable also to order  into strong colonies, aud each gave {from reliable dealers some weeks or  about as much honey as   the   aver-! months before the bees are   needed.  THE WEATHER  The following is the minimum  and maximum temperature for each  day during the past week, as recorded by the government thermometer on E. F. Laws' ranch:  age wintered colony.  But later experiments and iuves  tigations have sbowu that it is far  too much to expect such good results every year, aud that several  accidents are likely, to happen that  may make this method of acquiring  bees anything but profitable.  There is no customs duty on bees  entering Canada, but on entry for  customs returns, which usually  causes little or no delay, is required.  Max.  Min.  Feb.

OFFfCE:    COLUMBIA AVENUE AND LAKE STREET.  j.FRIDAY, .FEBRUARY 13, 1920  Viscount Grey, former British .ambassador  to Washington, has written as a private citizen a long .letter to the London Times, in  which he says that American reservations to  the peace treaty were justified from an American point of view. The letter is described by  the Times as unique in the history of diplomacy, and the Westminster Gazette says it is  most opportune at a time when mischiefr  makers are active in fomenting ill-will between Great Britain and the United States.  ������ne  secret  of being  well  preserved is to  keep out of jars with customers'  Major  Lloyd   George, son  of the premier,  who is on a visit to this country,   declared  at  Buffalo the other day that prohibition in Great  'Britain is so far distant that scientists can not  see it with their most powerful telescopes.  Apparently, the only way . in which some  persons can keep figures from lying is to spell  them into words.  The record price of three dollars and sixty  cents per bushel is now being asked for Canadian wheat for export io Eu rope. If the difference between Canadian exchange and that of  most European countries be added, the price  of Dominion wheat works out to about six  cents per pound, which is about what the  careful housewife would pay for sugar not so  many years ago. 7  Dreams of boundless wealth continue to  keep many ablebodied men busy t.iying to invent a soft drink with a satisfying kick  in it. y  French savants are inclined to attribute to  earthly causes the unexplained wireless impulses which Mr. Marconi- says may come  from sources outside of this planet and its atmosphere.  A news item  asserts   that corkscrews  are  subject to the luxury tax.    Well,  who ; cares  no  \v?  TTELLO( MARS ! Yes, this is the earth���������  -*���������-"-������������������. Evans, of .Grand Forks, speaking.. I  wish to . inform you. Mr. Mars, that I have  been appointed water controller of this district. When your big canal is next in perigee  with Grand Forks, send clown one acre foot  of water on the district within a radius of one  hundred miles of the city. Run it through a  fine sieve, as plant life is still in its infancy in  this section. The last installment of moisture  you despatched, doubtless owing to the blundering inefficiency of my predecessor in office,  came down in big lumps, and a great deal of  damage waa done to the tender vegetation in  the valley. The blunder cost the late occupant of the position his official head.  How did I manage to get the appointment?  It is quite a puzzle, isn't it?   It is  not really  the office I wanted.   I was after the  position  of jwhisky  coatroller, but since the petticoat  government came into power a  man   doesn't  stand more chance of getting anything  geod  from Victoria than a snowball  would have of  remaining on the planet Mercury for twenty-  four hours without melting.   The whisky con-  trollership had to goto an ardent prohibitionist,  evidently because the so-called total  abstainers were afr;:id they not get their share of the  "vile stuff" under any other supervision.   The  water controllership   only  about   twenty-five  thousand  dollars a year,.and it takes about  half an hour daily to attend to the  duties  of  the  office.   It costs a  single man about four  hundred  dollars  a day to live now.   Where  am I going to get off?    I don't know.     ������������������ '���������.-���������'  We still call the_ Victoria government the  petticoat government, though that is a misnomer.    The dear (I say dear advisedly)  creatures discarded petticoat shortly after they obtained  power.    What  do   they   wear   now?  Have you ever seen a ballet at a comic  opera  performance on this planet?    No?  Well,   did  ever see the Scotch kilties? You have?    Then  you as much  about present-day fashions  in  dress as I do.    Many years ago1, when I   was  working on the New York dailies, we used to  call the females the Twonick types of our profession.   I was never able to see the applicability of the nickname until the present style  of   women's  dress  came into vogue.    Well,  what's causing all the merriment at your end  of the phone now?    You saw the point right  away?    Well, you  are  older than I am, and  have probably had more experience  with   the  women than I have.    When I reach your age  I will likely be as wise on   this  subject as  a  night owl.  No, there isn't a single male member of the  legislature now. The Oliver government,  which retained power for a remarkably long-  period during panicky times, was the last in  which the men had full control of the destinies  of the province. Now the women occupy  every seat in tne local house,and a few years ago  a woman lieutenant-governor was appointed.  As they used to say in olden times, the men  don't cut much of a figure now. Female leins-  lators have completed cowed them.

PARE, Proprietor  Vat.k Mot ml, First Stkkkt  gs  MR BUSINESS qJWAN,  have you ever thought  that advertising puts: you in  good company? 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 in the country? Name  them 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 cities 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.  iSf II IP  ta  Tb  BO HE    SUN.

Seed Orders and Supplies  The new seed catalogues are coin  ing in with their lists of novelties  and staple varieties attractively advertised, and one gets much enjoyment in turning over the p-^es of  one of these catalogues and mentally  picturing the tin* crops one will  have next summer. Often, howevar,  the catalogue is laid aside without  the order being sent, and nothing  further is done until spring, when  it may be too late to get what is de  sired. The quantity available of the  best strains of vegetables aud flowers is usually small, hence it is very  important to order early before tbn  stock is exhausted.  There is a greatdifference between  the best and the poorest strains. Thn  slock of the   best  has I ee ���������    rigidly  selected    so   that a large proportion  will   come   true   to   type, whereas  stock which has not   been   kept   up  by selection   may   have a bad mixture of types, and the resulting crop  will be very unsatisfactory.
