Kettle Valley Orchardisf  SIXTEENTH YEAR���������No   35  GRAND FORKS   B   C, FRIDAY, JUNE 29, 1917  $1.00 PER YEAR  OF CITY  Committee Reports and Consideration of  Bylaws,  Principal.Business*  ,Both were advanced   to  tbe   third-  reading stage.  Aid. McArdle gave notice..that at  the   next   meeting ��������� he would  ask  leave to introduce a mayor's remun  eration   bylaw   and   also an aldermen's indemnity'bylaw.  Mayor Acres and Aid. McArdle,  McCallum, Schnitter and Webster  were present at the regular meeting  of the city council on Monday  evening. ..";'���������������������������-'��������� ������������������'  A letter from the poundmaster  stated that it was too much to feed  an impounded animal on 50 cents  a day.    Filed.  The chairman ��������� of  the water and  light committee reported    this was  about the time of the year that  the  water reservoir was usually cleaned.  The   reservoir   was leaking badly,  and the city engineer   had   recommended that the city procure a composition known as Aquitite Liquid  Coating for mending  the leaks.    A  sufficient quantity to repair the  entire  reservoir  would  cost  between  ������300 and $400, but the chairman of  the committee did  not think  that  the council would be willing to spend  that amount  for this  purpose   at  . pfesen^'ari'd" so  he  re.commende'd'  that a trial order of about $75.worth  of the com position be purchased  as  mean-? of testing it.    The city engi-'  near was authorized to proceed with  the work of repairing the reservoir,  after investigating  the best means,  at a cost not to exceed $75  or $80.  The chairman of the   water  and  light committee   reported   that  the  lawn   sprinkling hours  were being  violated   by   the   caretakers   of   a  couple oj our public buildings. The  v clerk was instructed to notify  them  to do their   sprinkling   within   tbe  hour limits.    The chairman also reported that many   complaints   had  come   to   him   about    automobile  owners removing the mufflers  from  their, cars.  The chairman of tbe health and  relief committee reported that the  back yard of the Sheads block had  not yet been put in sanitary condition, and that a barn near Percy  Clark's house needed the attention  of the board of health.- The chief  of police was instructed to make the  owners of these premises comply  with the health bylaw.  Aid. Webster was appointed  chairman pro tern, of the cemetery  and parks committee during the absence of Aid. Harkness.  Mayor Acres thought that some  steps should be taken to observe tbe  Golden Jubilee of Canadian Confederation in an appropriate  manner. He had interviewed tbe  ministers of the various denominations in tbe city,, and they had all  agreed to prepare special sermons  bearing on the occasion for Sunday,  July 1. Owing to the short time  intervening between that date, he  was of the opinion that this was tbe  extent to which the city could go in  observing the event.  The street sprinkling bylaw was  reconsidered and finally passed.  Aid. McArdle was granted leave  lo introduce^, tax rate and tax levy  bylaw, and also a tax rebate bylaw.  ���������-'���������;'���������'   .  Petty Thieving  Whether the turning'of so many  people'to gardening who have never  done any gardening before results  in an appreciable increase in-tbe  food production or not, it should  improve the moral standards of  many. A large number of boys  and youths who have been in the  habit of foraging in vegetable gardens aud fruit orchards without  getting the consent of the owner or  making any recompense for what  they take, are likely to be put to  work on the farms or in the gardens,  and through that experience they  will learn to appreciate the farmer's  right to his produce. Working in  a garden is.an occupation that conduces to respect for ownership; it  enforces upon the worker a moral  perception of tbe fact that the fruits  of the earth do not grow freely for  whoever happens along.  Robbing   orchards  and   gardens  has not been exclusively the diversion of the irresponsible small boy  and   the   undisciplined   village  or  city loafer.    Farmers all  over   the  country   have  country  have complained   of the  depredations com  ;mitted; by: people-who: come" iu  au-'  tomobiles and carry off strawberries,  raspberries, corn, pears and  apples,  according   to    the    season.    Such  thieves   de   luxe work  usually  on  Sunday.  "Day of rest!" exclaimed  ah indignant victim. l,It   ought  to  be a day of arrest! , But it never is.  They always get away with it."  ,   The garden or orchard thief  who  uses   an   automobile in making bis  "get-away" is less likely  than  the  corner loafer to be legitimately busy  on some  one's land  this   summer.  But perhaps he will be  drafted  for  military service.

The way was paved for the resumption of operations by the in  quiry conducted by R. F. Green,  M.P., who established a basis that  he considered fair and then. recommended to the Ottawa government  that a commissioner be appointed  with powers to enforce operation.  W. H. Armstrong was appointed  commissioner, and backed- by the  powers that the government gave  him as a result of Mr. Green's report, has been able to report that an  agreement has now been signed between the operators and the men.  It is assumed *here that under  these circumstances the actual exer  ci'se of the'full authority Mr. Armstrong had been given will be unnecessary, but under the order in  council which appointed him he'retain^ his special powers until three  months after*J th������''Vw'a'r. * "-So : far it  has been necessary to use them partially only.

Joseph Conrad, an old timer of  the Cascade district, was found dead  in bed Tuesday morning at Billings,  where he was employed in the mill.  Coroner Kingston held an inquest,  and a verdict was returned that deceased came to his death by taking  an overdose of patent medicine containing chloral. The remains were  shipped to Missouri for burial.  LWINIINCE  Pershing's. Advance  Guar d  of Regulars Arrive  Safely  W. J. Cook this week received a  letter from his son Ralph, who is  now in a convalescent hospital at  Hastings, England. The writer  states that on June 3 he received a  visit from Bob Kerr, and that the  latter's language was as forceful as  it was when he was conductor on  the Phoenix hill branch of the Great  railway. In the casualty list five  or six weeks, Mr. Kerr was reported  as having been killed in action.  The windstorm which passed  through the valley yesterday was  the severest that has visited this  section for a number of years. Some  trees were levelled to the ground  and a number of outbuildings were  capsized-:-..

Radical Repairs  The Boggs River & Northern railroad was putting into effect a most  rigid regime of economy. Locomotives were patched and repaired with  old parts and piece^luotil O'Leary,  the shop foreman.'Hbreatened to  break down under tbe strain.  To cap the climax, one day a  worn-out looking locomotive was  sent to the shops, and O'Leary was  told to give it a thorough examination and to report what would be  required to put it in first class run  ning shape. That same afternoon  O'Leary, having completed hie inspection, dispatched the following  note to headquarters:  "No. 36���������in today. To put in  complete repair: jack up her whistle  and build a new engine underneath."

The general store of M. Morris at  Danville was entered Wednesday  of last week, and the safe blown  open. All the furniture in the office  was;completely demolished. The  front door of the safe was opened.

No formal announcement came through the war department.   None will coime probably till  Major-Gen. Pershing's"official'"- >->r "  has been received.    Then there may  be   a   statement as to the numbers  and   composition   of   the   advance  guard.  Press dispatches from France,  presumably sent with the approval  of Gen. Pershing's staff, show that  Major-Gen. Sibert, one of the new  major-generals of the army, has  been given command of the first  force sent abroad under Gen. Pershing as commander-in-chief of the  evpeditionary forca.

June  Max.  4G  During the windstorm yesterday  the meteorological instruments at  E. F. Laws' ranch were blown down  and put out of service. Mr. Laws  also had a fine barn ruined  by  the  | storm, besides losing  a  number  of  ! fruit trees.  38  51  43      Dr. E. R.

He consented with great complaisance, and  went made up as Father Christmas.  For a time his antics and pranks  were the delight of the company.  A scrap of conversation he chanced  to hear, however, put a damper on  his enjoyment.  '���������Ain't   he   enjoyin'of hisself?"  remarked one old man  to   another.  "Wot a treat if is for   the   likes  be!    But why   can't they let all the  loonies out on a night like this?"  "Well," replied the other,"mebbe  they ain't, all so harmless as this'n!"  Waste Not, Want Not  A single slice of bread   seems an  unimportant thing. In many households one or more slices are thrown  away every day.    Sometimes quarter or half loaves find their way to  the garbage pail, yet one good-sized  slice of bread weighs an  ounce and  contains almost three-quarters of an  ounce of flour.   The American  department   of   agriculture estimates  that, if every one of the   20,000,000  homes in tbe United  States wastes,  on   an   average, only  one slice   of  bread a day, the country  is throwing   away   daily   over   14,000,000  ounces of flour���������more than 875,000  pounds, or enough for more than a  million one-pound loaves a day.   In  a full year at that rate   there would  be a waste of more than 319,000,000  pounds of flour,or more than 1,500,-  000   barrels���������enough   to   make at  least 400,000,000 loaves.    Since  it  takes 4������ bushels of, wheat  to   make  a barrel of ordinary fiour, the waste  represents   the   flour   from   about  7,000,000 bushels   of   wheaj.    Tbe  average crop of wheat is   not   quite  15 bushels to the   acre.    It   would,  therefore,  lake   the   crop   of  sonic  470,000 acres to   provide   a   single  slice of bread a day for every family  to waste. An army of  farmers, railway men and flour mill   employees  must work to produce that quantity  0f ..of flour, and many freigbt'ears  and  thousands of tons  of coal   are   re-  qu red to get  it to   the   consumer.  When there are so  many   ways   tt  make use of stale bread   it is  inexcusable to waste it. ?���������  THE   SUN,    GRAND   FORKS,   B. G.  'I?-..  Wat dkattft Sfarks. &mt  G. A. EVANS.

FRIDAY, JUNE 20, 1917  A Canadian patriot may be described as a  man willing to go hungry in order that a British  or French soldier on the firing line may get a  square meal.     '  Progress with the compulsory service bill in  the federal house seems to be rather slow, but  the indications are that it will eventually be  passed. There are also unmistakable signs  that a general election will follow the passage  of the bill. As The Sun predicted a couple  of weeks ago, the measure has shattered party  ties. The greatest defection appears to be  from the Liberal ranks. -  Let no man of military age the idea that  the U-boats will be exterminated in thirty  days'  q Bride's Choice  Nowadays is a handsome piece of Cut Glass.

NE WS OF THE 0ITT  Sir Wilfrid Laurier's argument against con-;  scription would have been sound in time of  peace; but in his entire speech, as reported in  Hansard, there is not a single word to indi  cate that the empire is now engaged in a  titanic struggle against a ruthless foe,-and  therein lies the weakness of his argument.

Small and dirty  eggs should, be used-by the poultry  breeders themselves, and should not  be placed on the market. "  BRIGHT FOR BRITISH  COLUMBIA. FRUIT  i A hopeful view of the fruit and.  vegetable marketing situation this  year is taken by Manager Lowe, of  the Okanagan United Growers. He  states that present indications lead to  the belief that despite the British embargo on apples, the American com-  . petition on the Canadian prairies will  not.be-pearly so keen as many had ex.  pected.  He bases this opinion on the fact  ., that recent reports show a marked  decrease in the anticipated American  ap^le crop, which government experts  now place at half of last year's yield  This is particularly noticeable in  Washington state, where.the crop' is  >a d to fall short of that of last year  by a million boxes.  It is believed in Vernon . that this  year Vancouver dealers will give the  preference to Okanagan apples, as well  as other valley fruit, and Mr. Lowe  brieves the outlook on the prairies by  no means discouraging. The Okana  gau United Growers' manager believes that farmers should be. in no  hurry to dispose of their potatoes,  onions and other field, orops, as stiff  prices will probably rule during the  fall.  the remaining one-third in two years.  No interest will be charged on unpaid  balances, Jmt interest at 10 per cent  will be charged on overdue payments.  Institutes that fail to make their payments promptly will not receive their  per capita grant on account of membership, but this sum will be devoted  towards the paymenis due. The department recommends that all institutes securing these machines adopt a  plan whereby a fixed charge of so  much per diem be paid by members  who U3e the machine. By this means  a fund will be provided towards paying the cost of the machine and the  depraciation in value. I  Thinning Fruit  As soou as the "June drop" is over  in the orchard it is time to start thin-'  ning the tree fruits. Usnally, the varieties of frhit which are the most ad-  - A  vanced are thinned first. Generally  apples, pears and peoches are thinned  when they are about the size ok a  hickory nut and the thinning should  be completed before they, are double  that size.  Thinning  is   necessary  because   a  tree often sets more fruit than   it  can  possibly   bring   to  perfection, as the  fruitgrower and the consumer   understand perfection.    It is necessary that  each   tree  carries  all the fruit it can  possibly   bring   to perfection, but no  more.    The removal of  some fruit at  an early stage of its growth helps materially .towards   securing the   maximum duty of the trees in many ways.  It   is   impossible   to   go  into the  method of thinning tree- fruits   here,  and the reasons why it should be done  are also  too   numerous   to   mention.  A limited number of horticultural circular No. 22, "Thinning Tree Fruits,"  is on nand at the department of agri-  cnlture, Victoria.   A copy  of this or  the many other publications in  stock  can be obtained as long as the supply  lasts.  STUMPING MACHINES,  FOR THE FARMERS  Hon. John Oliver,minister of agri  culture, has authorized the purchase  of a limited number-' of stumping machines to be apdlied %to Farmer's' In  statutes on a deferred payment sys  tern. This action on the part of -the  minister of agriculture is the outcome  of a n urn her of   requests    which have  Infertile Eggs Keep Longest  A million eggs a day is the amount  usually consumed by Great Britain in  normal times, although the consumption at the present time has been  greatly diminished; as many of the  sources of supply has been cut off on  account of the war.  At the prcsht time Canada" needs  every egg that it is possible for the  hens to lay. and it is important that  these eggs should be of the best and  that they should be infertile, so that  they will keep well during the hot  weather.  i- ;  The breeding season for poultry is  over and it is important that all  poultry keepers should dispose of or  isolate the breeding male. Some peo-,  pie think that the hens will not lay so  well if there is no male bird present,  but this is not the case,as inmost cases!  the presence of male fowls tends to  decrease, not increase,tbe egg yield.  It was estimated that last year over  $3,000,000 was lost in Canada through  fertile eggs being marketed. A temperature of a little over 70 deg. will  start incubation, and this temperature  J. H. McCulloch, district agriculturist with headquarters at Kamloops,  has resigned from the service of the  provincial governmeht-to take a position in Winnipeg.- Mr. McCulloch  made his headquarters at Quesnell  for several months, but recently his  district was enlarged and his headquarters transferred to Kamloops.  George C. Hay, who has be-n stationed at Telkwa for the past year  and a half as district agriculturist,  has been transferred to Kaamloops  and will fill the position vacated by  Mr. McCnlloch.  The books of the Granby Consoli  dated Mining, Smelting and Power  company will be closed on July 18 for  the dividend of 8374,362 to be disbursed on August 1.  You can not reach The Sun's  numerous readers except through  the columns of The Sun.  The Sun is always a live issue in  Grand Forks.  This loss can be eliminated by removing the male bird. Infertile eggs  may bncome strong and musly when  exposed to unpleasant odoi\ but they  is often considerably   exceeded in the  bften received by the department from  groeery store windows.

Th'* department of agriculture will  supi ly application forms to any Fartr-  ers' Institute on .request. Thes-  forms must be signed by the president, the vice-president and the directors and also by five members of  the institutes. Freight charges on the  machines must be pa<d by the institute from the factory. Terms of payment for the machines: One-third on  dolivery* one third   in one year, and  7  can never get into tho condition in  which fertile eggs are often found to  be when broken by the consumer.  Another reason why the male birds  should be dispensed with at the end  of the breeding season is the expense  of keeping them. If marketed at the  present time fchoy will probably bring  in a few cents a pound more than  they wi'l in the fall, and in  addition the 50 or 60 cents' worth of  feed necessary to keep them in good  condition until that time will be saved.  During the hot, weather the eggs  should be collected at least twice  daily, and should be stored in a sweet  Addressing Mail to Soldiers  In order to facilitate the handling  of mail at the front and to insure  prompt delivery it is, requested that  all mail be addressed as follows:  (a) Regimental number.

This kind of rough  talk will be heard less here in town if  people troubled with corns will follow  the simple advice of this Cincinnati  authority, who claims that a few drops  of a drug called freezone when applied  to a tender, aching corn stops soreness  at once, and soon the corn dries up  and lifts right out without pain.  He says freezone is an ether compound which dries immediately and  never inflames or even.' irritates the  surrounding tissue or skin. A quarter  of an ounce of freezone will cost, very  little at any drug store, but is sufficient to remove every hard or soft  corn or callus from one's feet.
