DEATH OF AN AGED  PIONEER LADY  ^ Admiral Sims, of' the United  States navy, likes nothing better  than pointing out the differences between "Britishers" and  Americans.

Admiral Sims was asked the other  day to tell in a nutshell what is the  main difference between the average  Briton and the average American.  "Well," he said, "I think the fellow who put it this way was about  right: An Englishman walks into a  drawidg room,as if he owned it.

The late Mrs..Petrie was a native  of  Dundee,   Scotland,   where   she  lived   until  after  the   death of her  husband. In 1SS0 she and her family of three children  immigrated to  Wyoming,U.S. A., where they resided  for seventeen years.    In   1897  the  family moved to Grand  Foi ks, and  the deceased   has  lived  here  ever  since with her son.    She is survived  by two sons and a daughter���������Robert  F. Petrie, a  business man   of   this  city; James   Petrie, _of Vancouver,  and Mrs. Lloyd.A.  Manly,   who   is  now living in Boston.  The late Mrs.  Petrie  was an  estimable lady, and  the sympathy of the: community  is  extended to the bereaved family.  The funeral was held from the  family residence on Third street,  where services were conducted.at 2.30  Tuesdayafterooon. There was a large  attendance of citizens to pay their  last tribute of respect to the memory  of the dead. Many,beautiful floral  offerings were made. Interment  was made.at.the-iFralernal cemelexy.  UP AT CAPITAL  Full House Listens to the  After- the-War Budget  Delivered by Sir Thos.

"  The American reputation in Eu  rope for wit and humor has been  enhanced there by the crop of good  stories concerned with her negro  troops iu France. Admiral Sims tells  these:  "The night before a negro battalion was to go over the top an  officer, addressing a coon who was  almost scared white, said:  " 'Sam, what would you do if you  saw the whole blamed German cavalry coming at you right this very  minute?'  " 'Boss,' replied the black man,  between knee quakes, 'I'd sure  spread the news through France!' "  The admirnl tells of another  "coon" who took a batch of Huns  prisoners in a trench. One of the  Germans, in pitiable accents, begged  the negro to let bim off with his life.  "Blease, blease, spare me!" he  moaned. "I haf a vile und five children got."

Supporters of the government  state that the administration has  gone a considerable distance in the  direction of meeting the demands of  the western farmers.  The outstanding features of the  budget are: ^  A reduction in the duties on'agri-  'cult'u'ral implements "~froirf -15 'per  cent to 27 per cent, the rate proposed  in the reciprocity agreement of 1911.  A reduction in railway rates on  agricultural implements.  The partial repleal of tbe intermediate and general tariff rate of 7������  per cent imposed as a war measure  in 1915.  A number of otherimportant tariff  changes, including the free importation of wheat, wheat flour and po  tatoes from countries which do not  impose a customs duty on such *ar-  tiules produced in Canada.  ' A heavy increase in some taxa  tion, including the tax on corporations.  Renewal of the busiuess profits  war   tax   for   the  current calendar  The tremendous increase in profits  extorted by a section of pulp and  paper industry brought about an  investigation by the government.  At once came a drop of 20 per cent  in prices. That was followed by  strenuous efforts to call off or impede  the inquiry. It has been going on  in spite of continuous official delay.  The government auditor accepting  the figures supplied by the only  company whose figures are obtainable���������though the investigation started over two years ago���������show that  the average profits per pound of  paper in the first half of 1918 were  nearly 300 per cent, greater per  pound than what they were in 1914."  And iu 1914 this "company paid 7,  per cent dividends on its preferred  stock which, in all probability, will-  be found to represent the total investment in the enterprise.

FItlDAY, JUNE 13,-1919  It is not easy to discern why so much noise  should have been raised at the capital over  the. budget. Tho new tariff gives the farmers  of-the prairie provinces what they have been  clamoring for for years, and it is therefore difficult to understand why the measure  should 'have' been the cause of the resignation  of the minister of agriculture, who hails from  Saskatchewan, or why it should not meet with  the hearty approval of the members from the  farming constituencies. If anything, the bill  favors the farmers, but as there is lio great  danger of legislating the farmers into millionaires, this not is a gr'evous fault. We have  ���������not yet seen a complete copy of the new tariff,  but in the excerpts that we have seen the  changes appear to be quite rational, and we  that the people can unite in endorsing the  measure.  As a nation we can only consume to the  value of what we produce, and if production  falls away there will be less to go around,"and  each will have to pay more for the things he  obtains.  The Sun was asked for a thing this week  that, when sifted down to its last analysis,  virtually amounts to a censorship or anjabso-  lute control of the opinions of this paper. The  complete throttling of the freedom of the press  has never yet been accomplished even by the  most dispotic government in the wsrld, and it  is not likely that any body of men in this free  country   will  tos  successful  in attaining this  object.  \ ���������        ���������  There is every indication, says the Canadian Trade Commission, that cost of manufacturing in Cauada for a long time will not be  greater than in Europe. Canada in the meanwhile could get a footing in the foreign markets.  What would happen to the world if the  farmers should declare a continent-wide  strike during seeding time or when the garnering of the crops is at its height?  "Ships are the secret of our success," says  Lloyd Harris, head of the Canadian Mission  in London. "We must find means of joining  our railways with the railways in Europe.  Ships only do this."  The Outlook Is Promising  we. should   maintain   the pace, and keep production at a high standard. .;.,.-  The effects of the war are still with us as  far as the cost of foodstuffs are concerned, but  as long as production is maintained and continued the sooner will come the relief we are  looking for. It is no time for narrowness of  vision, when reconstructive policies are being  conceived, and if readjustment processes are  to proceed in a broad way every one must play  a courageous and creative part. .During the  war every man did his part, and as. a result  accomplishments were great. With concentration of all workers on the chief end, namely,  to produce munitions and maintain armies in  the field, 'abnormal conditions resulted, but  even in the short period since the cessatioirof  Hostilities advancement toward a normal plane  have been marked.  This is particularly the case in the assimilation of those citizens who have rerurned  from Europe. Notwithstanding the fact that  all steamers available on the Atlantic ocean  have been taxed to the utmost to return the  fighting men to this continent, and theso men  have been demobilized in all parts of the country, announcement is already made that so  great is the demand of industry that labor in  some sections is none too plentiful. The peace  plans of the great industries are such that demand will be made for men throughout the  coming months, and it is only a matter of time-  before sectional surpluses of labor are relieved;  vocational schools are fitting the men to be  better able than ever to tackle the problem of  existence, qualifying them for a higher standard. It is only a matter of time before all are  fitted into places. The influx of labor, following demobilization, has been sudden,'but the  manner in which men are adapting themselves  indicates that unemployment will not be a  considerable menace even on the Pacific coast,  which has received more than its quota of re  turned-Citizens.  '������������������/,.!:   Perhaps the copper market has suffered  more than anv other. Although the largest  producers of copper north of Mexico have  curtailed their production they have not lessened the number of employees to any appreciable extent, extending their work^ of development in the meantime. The continued heavy  buying on the New York stock exchange, the  clients of which are to be found from coast to  coast, indicates that faith in the future which  still the voice of pessimism.  These facts tend to show that industrial'  conditions will be maintained at almost the  top-notch that was reached during the war  period, except that instead of producing materials to be destroyed, the outputs of peace  plants will be the many articles required in  upbuilding and the necessities of which there  has been a dearth for many months. With  markets in all parts of the world demanding  commodities of every description, with manufacturers calling for men, there is little probability of the shutting down of any-of the large  plants which spell for prosperity in industrial  centers.  It is most encouraging to note reports from  all parts of the east and south relative to the  continuance of that high level of prosperity  which was reached some months ago. There  was those who foresaw depression when tile,  necssity for strenuous production ceased, but  today they will acknowledge they were wrong.  There are always to,lie found those who wish  to pose as prophets, who would create a stir  by making alarming statements; but no man  can adduce facts to show that industrial   con-  (T  ���������^  'i3  Sometimes causes many find varied disturbances in seemingly unrelated parts of the body.

Gpi-n S.-iiurd.iy i:v<iii<i������s Til! 10 o'Ooc-k  If the orchard lands are under an  irrigation  system   tbe question   of  improving soil fertility is  not  difficult.    Legume crops may be grown  annually   and   then   ploughed    in  deeply; this  operation   followed by  shallow surface tillage, and the problem is   largely  solved.    But in districts   were   there  is   no irrigation,  and the summer rainfall is not   sufficient to supply the   needs  of both  the trees and a growing cover   crop,  the problem is more  difficult.    The  mulcb system offers partial   relief to  the dry districts, in that  it   reduces  destruction of organic matter caused  by tillage; enn.=erves   moisture   thai  s    usually    lost   from   exposed soil  surfaces.    At the experimental   station for Vancouver island   the   orcl-  arci was established under   a   tillage  practice that during   the lourth year  a green mulchment.    Peas  and   red  clover are the mulch materials used  Peas are sown   in   October and  the  clover is weeded   in March, the rota  Hon consisting of one year peas, two  years olover   The green crops are cut  early in June and at once spread beneath tbe trees.  By this method the  decay'  of   the mulch material will  greatly increase the organicmatter in  the soil and there is no summer-tillage' to  destroy   it  after it has been  produced.  r  Jewelry aiid Silverware  Everything that can please and charm your friend  Before going elsewhere,,give us a call and inspect  our stock.
