 .!_  legislative Library ,;.^^;  Kettle Valley Orchardist  ���������  j  lb !  19TH YEAR���������No. 35  GRAND FORKS . B. C, FRIDAY,   JUNE 25,  1920  "Tell me what you Know is true:  I can guess as well as you."  $1.00 PER YEAR  These Temporary Memorials May Be Secured  By Relatives in Due  Time      .  The imperial war graves commission has announced that when the  temporary wooden crosses which  mark the graves of Canadian soldiers  in France and Belgium are replaced  by permanent headstones, the tern  porary crosses will be forwarded - to  those relatives whose applications  ���������are received before September 1,  1920. Next of kin who.desire insecure possession of these wooden  crosses should address their applications to the Secretary. Imperial  WarGrave8 Commission, Winchester House, St. James' Square. London, S.W., England, stating the-ad-  dress to which the cross is to be  sent, and giving as full particulars  as possible of the soldier on whose  grave it was erected; that ie, regimental number (if any), rank, name  in full, and unit. If' known to the  applicant, the name of.the cemetery  should also be mentioned. It should  be understood that these wooden  crosses can not be forwarded* until  they are repla������ed by permanent  headstones; therefore some time  must elapse before the crosses can  be received.  The naxt of kin should keep Jthe  secretary informed of any change of  address.  It is possible that in some instances the wooden crosses have  been very badly- damaged or completely destroyed by subsequent  enemy action, and in such cases it  will, of course, not be possible to  comply with requests that they be  forwarded.  Re-Q  for. If this.or a young virgin queen,  is not present, or if the brood consists wholly or (.largely of drones,  known by the strongly convex cap-  pings over the pupae,' a fertile  queen is supplied at once from the  nucleus kept for the purpose, or a  ripe queen cell is given. The best  beekeepers go further-and follow a  regular system of re-queening each  colony yearly, thus replacing all except perhaps the best one-year old  qfieens. The youngqueens are mere  prolific and profitable not only in  the fall bufalso in the spring, and  are lees likely to swarm than the  older queens.  The best time to raise queens in  Canada is during the clover honey  flow. Do not delay until the flow is  declining, when robbing is easily  induced.  A' simple and good way for the  beginner to obtain fertile queens is  .to save the queen-cells in. a colony  that has thrown a prime swarm.  Five or six days after the. swarm  has left, the colonv should be divided into nuclei, each consisting of a  comb.or two of brood containing a  queen cell or two and,honey with the  adhering bees.  A frequent object in re-queening  is to change the race of the colony  from black bees to Italian's, which  resist European foul brood better  and are generally more prolific and  better foragers in the interior of  Canada, where the summers are  warm. In purchasing Italian queens  untested ''fertile queens should be  specified. They are less liable-to be  injured in the mails than tested  queens.  A good way to introduce a queen  to a colony is in the "Miller" cage.  The queen is'imprisoned by a plug  of soft candy which the bees eat  away in the course of a few hours,  and in so doing liberate the queen.  Of course, one should make quite  sure that the colony to which the  queen is introduced is without a  queen, and it is Advisable to introduce her to a colony from which the  queen has been removed the previous day.  *>  Date for Glosin<s the -New  Vovers* List Fixed by  the Government for  July 15  It would be well for voters to bear  id mind that if their names are not  filed with the regiutr.irs named to  ���������take the same for the new provincial voters' list, they will be disenfranchised from voting on the prohibition plebiscite this fall, and in  the provincial election, which it is  generally believed will follow soon  after the former vote'is taken. Don't  postpone the registration for a mo  ment. Do it-now. The date of clos  ing the new provincial voters' list  has been fixed by the government  for July 15. The court of revision  will sit six weeks after, that date.  GHANGES IN FRUIT  MARKETING FIRMS  SINGE LAST YEAR  -(jueentng  The Apiary  ' [EXPERIMENTAL FARMS NOTE ]  The extent to which attention is  paid to the frequently necessary  operation of re-queening is a good  measure of the efficiency of the  management of an apiary.  We find, for instance, In the neglected apiary, that no attempt at re-  qeening is made, and the colony or  swarm that chances to lose its  queen���������an accident which frequent  ly happens to colonies that have  swarmed or to after-swarms���������is  simply left to die out.  Then there is the fairly well kept  apiary in which the absence of eggs  in a colony after the young queen  should have started laying is recognized as an indication that she has  been lost and a frame of brood in all  stages is given to the colony in order  that il may raise a queen, which  frequently does not begin to luy until the colony is much reduced in  population.  Finally we have the well managed  apiary in which the colonies are examined  at   regular   intervals,  and  worker brood in all stages in patches' t|]e  n(iX^  of full size for the season   is looked house."

PROSPEGTS OF  FRUIT FOR 1920  seems to think that if other organizations are to have their battle  cries, a Sunday school class also  hould be permitted to make an  official noise at proper times and  places.

'Plums and  prunes will be an average crop and  so will peaches, cherries and apricots.  Reports from the principal stone  fruit geowing centers all suggest a  very heavy setting of fruit. If the  June drop is moderate a big crop of  stone fruit is assured.  Fall apples are light; so are Jonathans and Wagner. Wealthy, always  heavy, is reported at 75 per cent  of last year's crop. Mcintosh Reds  are very heavily set, and so are Delicious and Winesaps. The average  will be under last year's yield, but  the young trees coming into bearing will likely increase the tonnage  beyond last years output.  Strawberries are about 80 per cent  of last year's crop; raspberries about  60 per cent; blackberries and loganberries about 25 per cent. There is  about 400 acres added to the small  fruit acreage this year. The minimum price of straws, rasps aud  logans will be about $4 50f.o.b.  shipping point;' gooseberries, red  currants and black currants from  $2.50 to $3 50; cherries, Bings and  Lamberts   abont   $2 50, .

S>  far three provinces have signified  their desire for a referendum���������Saskatchewan, Alberta and Ontario.  In regard to these provinces, therefore, it is likely that the vote will  be taken on Octoher 25. Although  the date has not yet been formally  fixed, arrangements are being made  particularly as regards Ontario.  Male and female electors alike will  vote there, and lists are now being  prepared on the basis of the new  franchise bill now before parliament.  BRITISH BUYERS  COMING TO B. G.

It is expected that Mr. Birch will  visit British Columbia about the end  of July.  Mr. McCallum, of the Scottish  Cooperative Society, Glasgow.is now  in British Columbia, buying apples  for his firm. He knows our goods.  Last yeai he got satisfaction in the  Kootenay district, and he may  again purchase there.  Mr. Andrews, of the Manchester  Cooperatives, will v sit us some time  thismonth. He will look after a  supply of apples for his society. The  cooperative societies of Great Britain  represent a large buying capacity,  and. they are showing enterprise in  sending their buyers to British Columbia.  We must do our best by insisting  that only reputable apples are sent  to Britain. It is not likly that a  member of the firm of Simons Jacobs, of Glasgow, Liverpool and  London, will visit British Columbia  this year. They have a Canadian  representative in Toronto, who covered the province very thoroughly  in March, and arrangements have  been tentatively made for shipments on their behalf.

"What is the need of Canada at the present  time? We have a great debt in this country.  How are'we going to meet it? We are told to  produce. We can produce in the factories, on  the land; and in the mines of this contry. We  have great natural resources that only need be  developed in order to enrich this country; and  if we could only develop those resources to  the extent of one-fourth of their value at the  present time we would have no' trouble in  meeting our obligations as a nation._ There is  no cause for any person in this country to be  discouraged about the future of Canada. All  we need to do is to move around this Dominion to realize the grei.'t resources we possess;  and we can not help but- become prouder of  our country and can not help but glory in the  fact that, in Canada, we have as great wealth  and as great opportunities as are to be found  in any land in the world today. What is requisite is to encourage the development of  those resources, and, given an opportunity to  the people to take advantage of the wealth  that is in the county, there will be no need for  the government to worry about the future of  'Canada and . no need for the honest, capable  and anbitious citizen of Canada to worry  about it either."���������W.

How many persons know what .happens  when a pint of gasoline is left open in a room?  If the temparature is normal the liquid entirely evaporate in tweuty-four hours. The  vapor is heavier than'air,-and therefore sinks  to the floor. Unless disturbed, it will remain  there for hours, and by mixing with the air,  forms an explosive compound about seven  times as powerful as gunpowder. One pint of  gasoline will make one hundred cubic feet of  this compound. It is not necessary that a  lighted match come in contact with it. A  spark struck by a nail in a shoe will explode  it. So will a gas jet, or even the enclosed fire  in the kitchen stove. If it is necessary to use  gasoline for cleaning gloves or other articles,  Soms men go through' life thinking that they  are express trains, whereas they are only   en  gines, running light;  Whoever reads commercial statistics from  Russia should remember that a pood is thirty-  six pounds and that a Bolshevist ruble of today is worth perhaps half a cent. Thus to say  that the Bolshevists have mined '5,000,000  poods of coal means that theyj-have mined only  some 90.000 tons, and to say that soviet agricultural estates with an area of 2,700;000 acres  ���������have.produced crops worth 843,000,000 rubles  means that the land has ..produced crops worth  some $5,000,000. /'   '  He   who  seeks  to follow two trails comes  homo with-an empty game bag.

It is possible, theoretically, in the course of  a short trip to France, Switzerland and- Italy  to increase the money you take with you a  thousand per cent by. changing it repeatedly  from the currency of one country into that  of another. An English .-ten.1 pound note in  France will buy 420 silver francs. In Switzerland the francs will buy 2100 Italian paper lire.  In Italy the paper lire, should buy .silver of  their face value. Go back to Switzerland and  exchange the silver lire for 2100 Swiss francs.  W.itti them you can buy 4200 French paper  francs. Take them to France and with them  buy English notes for ������100. If you should start  from America and buy your first English notes  at a low rate of exchange, your profit would  be even greater. The theory is amusing, but  practically the scheme will not work.for silver  s so scarce on the continent that the amount  of specie .that travelers may carry from one  country to another is limited.'
