The  plans  include a flight from   Vancouver to  Calgary via the  Crow's  Nest Pass,  thence to Edmonton aud homeward  via the Yellowhead pass and  Kamloops, with a preliminary   flight ��������� to  Victoria and return. It is stated that  only Canadian and   British  airmen  are   eligible to  compete, using machines of Canadian or British make.  oiation,   reported   in   Country Life  department of today^s Globe.  It can not be expected  that there  will be any superabundance  of  apples this year.  The heavy mortality  in. trees a year   ago precludes any  possibility of this, but at least there  is reason to hope for   heavier  fruiting   than   in   any year since 1914.  There is good reason to   hope,   too,  that growers will obtain  returns for  their   labor   much   more profitable  than has been the rule for years past  It looks as if the turn   of   the   tide  has come for Ontario's apple indus  try,  /   /Tell me what you Know is true:  *-/  I can guess as well as you."  $1.00 PER YEAR  WOOD ASHES  FOR FERTILIZER  Increase in Fruit Is|Feat-  ure���������225 Tons of Honey.

A lady, according to the  "narrator, wrote to an officer at Fort  S-im Houston as follows: "Mrs.  Srny he requests the \ 1 auireof Capt.  Bunker's company at a dinner-on  July 17, at seven o'clock."  The next  day  she  received  this j  . note: |  "With tbe exception of three  men who have the measles and one  who   is   in   the  guardhouse, Capt.  Bunker's company    accepts    Mrs.  Smythe's kind invitation with pleas  ure.  ONTARIO APPLES  COMING BACK  For two or three years  hundreds  of thousands  of  people  who have  hitherto used coal for all  fuel   purposes will, in part at least, use wood.  Many  factories  will  make  it their  chief dependence, and   a considerable number of shops that get   their  power from waterfalls will use wood  for  heating.    The   situation is not  without   its 'advantages, for, unlike  coal, wood as fuel fnrnishes a valuable by-product for the farmer.   On  account of the difficulty   of getting  potash, fertilizers are at present extremely  high  in   price.    But wood  ashes   contain   a   large  amount  of  potash, and, except that  they   lack  nitrogen,    they : furnish a  complete  fertilizer. The lime iu thetn sweetens  the   soil   ho   that   nitrogen-storing  plants,   such   as   beans,   peas"' and  clover, can grow on their  roots   the  nitrogen fixing bacteria that can not  live in sour soil. Thus, in a second -  I ary way, wood ashes are a   complete  fertilizer for such plants.  They also  increase the growth of cabbage, . carrots and corn.    But it is not adyisa  ble   to   mix   them, with  barnyard  manure.  The advice has often been given  not to use wood ashes on potato  land. The reason is  that such   use  Figures showing the remarkable  increase in British Columbia food  production and export, particularly  in fruit, were produced in the legislature at Victoria Wednesday night  by Hon. E. D. Barrow, minister of  agriculture. He promised that future development would be carried  on along safe and sane lines.  Shipments of fruit to the prairies  in 1919 totaled 29,125 tons, valued  at $3,033,000, and in the last foul-  years the shipments had increased  in value from S690;000 to the figure  of more than $3,000,000, an increase  of 790 per cent in quantity and 338  per cent in value.  British Columbia now had one  million hens, half of them laying.  Hammond, in the Fraspr valley,  which had a small fruit crop failure  in 1914, went in for poultry, and  now had 15,000.    Egg  laying  con-  keep their size well to the end   of the  reason    The^Parsons Beauty is better  in   quality   than  Glen Mary and the  latter is not very desirable   for   home  use, but both should be tried    to   determine   which   succeeds   best in the  particular locality and soil where they  are grown.    The Williams is   a   thru  berry, which is a very   popular   com  inercial sore in western   Ontario, hue  is   not   very   popular   in most other  parts of Gauada.     It has a  white  tip  which increases its: shipping  qualites J  bub   lessens its value when it is to be  eaten raw. Splendid is a rather   early  variety which has made a good record  in eastern Canada, and   Beder   Wood  is    also   another  reliable   early sort.  The   Marshall    is  one of   the best in  quality but must be grown under high  cultivation    in   eastern Canada to get  ���������fair crops and.is not now much grown  on account of its light   cropping, but  on the lower Mainland of British Columbia it does well and is   one of   the  best commercial varieties there.    The  Magoon   is   also a commercial variety  which is also grown mainly in British  Columbia.  The foregoing are the leading commercial varieties in Canada, although  to these might be added Sample, Po������  comoke and Warfield as succeeding  very well in some places. For the  prairies, a variety called . Dakota,  rather small in fruit but very hardy,  has proved one of the most reliable,  though Senator Dun lap also does well  if well cared for.  The best varieties for home use   in  eastern Canada are  Senator   Dunlap,  In Proportion as the People Place Their Savings  at Government's Dispo-  al Will Credits Be Made  Available  tests in the province   have resulted  Bubach, Parsons   Beauty,  While   nearly   all   other  lines of  agriculture have enjoyed  unwonted)  prosperity-iri the last four years, apple growers, speakinggenerally,have  labored under exceptional   disabilities, says  the Toronto  Globe.    The  labor  shortage has told with special  severity on orchardists   because   the  labor available has  been   turned   to  the production of absolutely  essential tpod products.   While, too, field  crops, as a whole, have been at least  up to the average  in   the   last   few  years, returns from  apple  orchards  have run much, below  the   average.  of them is likely to cause scab.   The  advice is good if the crop is intended  for the market; but if the   potatoes  are to be raised for home use, a   lib-  'eral application of wood  ashes   will  increase the crop without doing any  harm, for scab   is   only   skin-deep,  and does not affect   the flavor.    Besides, rolling  the  seed,  in  sulphur  virtually eliminates   the   likelihood  of scab.    Putting the ashes  on   the  soil   the   year   before or scattering  them on the snow in winter   is   another way of reducing the likelihood  that   they   will   cause scab.    With  ashes   from   $25   to  830  a ton for  fertilizer, the man who burns wood  has a possible rebate on his firewood  in an average per hen per year of  154 eggs. The average all over Canada is only 72.  The  honey   production   in 191S  was 225 tons,  as   against   only   20  tons seven years ago.   The   inciease  in vlaue was from $6800  to   ������126,  000   Fifty thousand   dollars   worth  of   seeds   have   been   grown in the  Okanagan   in   the  last  year.    The  government would  give  encouragement   to   this   new   industry,    he  promised.  and    Wm.  Belt, the latter and the Bubach   being  large   varieties of  good   quality.     In  British   Columbia   the Royal   Sovereign, Paxtou, and Marshall are   three  of the best   for  home   use.     The two  former are English varieties not satisfactory except in the mildest  sections  of   the   Dominion.

Thousands more can make  a   start  by   buying    War  Savings Stamps,  which cost 64.02 during   March, on  the same basis, the instalments   being  25c. Thrift  Stamps and paid at  the convenience of the   saver," said  a member of the local committee on  national war  savings  today.    "The  War Savings stamp is redeemable by  the Canadian governmegt on January 1, 1924, for five dollars.  "Men, women and   children   can  not only purchase these thrift stamps  at the banks or post offices, but they  may   buy   them or   take  them   in  change at a large uumber   of  stores  throughout the   country,   representing every branch of the retail trade.  'By means of   the   War   Savings  plan the people are enabled   to   furnish the Canadian governmsnt with  the money to provide the credit   necessary   to   finance   sales   to other  countries.  "Since June, 19IS, the Dominion  has advanced ������240,000,000 to the  British government for this purpose,  as follows: Imperial munitions  board, 8132,000,000; for the purchase of Canadian grain, $55,000,-  000; for dairy exports, 835,000,000;  for the sale of the Britiah Columbia  salmon pack, 84,000,000; for other  exports of food, -810,000,000.  '���������Whether or not Canada's export  trade will 4bs maintained at high  ievels will depend upon the extent  to which Canadians advance the  money to finance it.

IVokIOIR'��������� Guaxd Fohks, B. C.  OFFICE:    COLUMBIA AVENUE AND LAKE STREET.  FRIDAY, MARCH 21, 1019  Confidence Essential  rplIE mighty things which have been accom-  ���������*��������� plished in Britain in thepa.stjfew years has  been the result of the unification of interests  of those who work in the office and those who  ��������� 'work in'the plant. Tne willingness of all to do  what was possible brought about an increased  production and developed changes 'on a new  and permanent basis.  - There is no argument as to whose was the  guiding hand. .-David Lloyd George has stood  out prominently, and his attitude has been one  :'of fair play, so that the greatest good would  follow to the country as a whole. Who is there  ���������\ylio would say that his policy has not  been beneficial?- And now that the war is over,  who would say that such a fair-minded policy  should not continue? .  It has been proven that if labor and capital  unite in the common aim of each, doing its  best, cooperating all along the line, and coordinating their forces, everybody benefits. If  that is the case, then anything which tends to  separate labor and capital, which would interfere with their common interests, detracts from  the pleasure and profit of both. Such an outside element finding its way into industry, destroys the congeniality of working forces���������it is  like sand getting into the bearings of machinery. Tlie result is destruction without any  benefit whatever.  After years of effort in building up a great  productive system in Britain, in uniting forces  which have always had greater or lesser differences, David Lloyd George views with some  apprehension the entry of that force which  has disrupted Russia, which' is tearing the  vitals out of Germany, and which even threat-  ' ens America. It is a force like a great windstorm that blows hard and tears things up,  leaving ruin in its path. It is cyclonic in its  teudency, and is beyond control, it continues  until it is exhausted.  "There is one condition for the continued  efficiency of this country,'1 the British premier  says, "iiarnely, confidence. Bolshevism is the  poison that kills efficiency. Russia proves that;  Russia will not begin the building up of a productive system until Bolshevism has worked  itself out. All classes must give confidence to  those who have brains, to those who have capitals, to those with hearts and hands to work."  If people have confidence in one another,  they are sure to get along amicably together.  It is this amity that the outside element is  seeking to destroy today. They tell the work-  ingman that he is being abused, that he is underpaid, and if they can not work it that way,  they sow seeds of distrust by pointing to the  manner in which the rich man enjoys himself  while the laborer is chained to his job. They  suggest everything that will  breed  distrust���������  ingman always get the chance of a referendum  when a strike is proposed? /  What happens when strikes are called without due consideration by those concerned is  shown by the events at Seattle a few weeks  cigo. It was hoped that if leverage could be  brought to bear on the shipbuilders that any  demand could be made. It turned out to be a  case of trying to grab at too much and losing  all. Contracts were cancelled, and. at this writing it look as if the end of shipbuilding was  in sight in the big yards to the south.  Confidence, contentment, efficiency���������the  three are inseparable. Without confidence  there is no contentment, and if we are not  happy we can not work satisfactorily. We  should carefully scrutinize any element that  interferes with our aims and hopes. The more  insidious it is, the more careful should be our  scrutiny. r  (T-  Vp S tvn IU  >Vill1a?ect1 ^e mental arid phy-  J ^ w3J ������^-H_ ta_._. _ gical development ot your child  Many parents, while particularly careful of their children's  health.and food, neglect entirely the condition of their"eyes.

'���������Mum," he replied. "I've put it  right for you. Of course, it's striking  a little too much now; but, remember  it's been standing silent for ten years.  You must allow it to make up for  lost time!"  Bulldog Beatty  "Eirly in everything," That' is  the motto of Admiral Beatty, Britain's naval hero. In the service he  is known as "Bulldog Beatty," by  reason of the tenacity with which  he fastens on to any job he is called  upon to tackle.  The navy swears by him, and he  is proud of his men. After Jutland  the Huns boasted of the destruction  of his ships.    Beatty simply replied:  "The battle cruiser fleet is alive  and has a very big kick in her."  Fortunately for them, the Huns did  not wait for the kick.  Beatty's naval record is amazing.  He was a commander at twenty-  seven, a.captain at twenty-nine, and  rear-admiral at thirty eight���������the  youngest on record. Nelson was a  year older when he wad appointed  rear admiral.  A Good-Cigar Is a Smoke  Some horrid man smoked a cigar  not long ago in the room where Mrs.  Minnie Grinstead was dining, says  the New York Tribune, little suspecting she would have her revenge  in a way given to few women. He  did not know, of course, that she  was the first woman legislator in the  state of Kansas.  Mrs Grinstead promptly intro-  d'icid a bill to prohibit sin king:in-  public dining rooms. Her masculine  colleagues passed the bill���������but not  until an artful masculine colleague  hid t;-cked on an amendment which  provided that "smoking in public  places shail be unlawful except  where cigirs, merchandise" and  stocks of merchiodiss are kept for  sale " Mrs Grinstead, unused to  ] ���������gii-lative tactics, voted for the  ji>ker, and now discovers there ar^  lew lunchrooms which can not boast  a stock of merchandise, .consisting of  ai If'i.st a paclc-me of guuj.  ��������� Women    legislators  are   going to  have   a    h^.rd    time   taking cobac.'O  away from smoking lawmakers.

Wait a minute, though. Do you  know anything about clocks'?"  He did not; but he was not the sort  of man to decline business, and he de  clared that his father had been a  clochmaker, and that in his youth he  had been lulled to sleep by the  ticking of innumerable clocks  "Well, there's one here that's been  stopped for ten yewrs. Mend it, aud  you shall have what you want."  He managed to get his dinner before tackling the timepiece; but when  he had taken that clock to pieces and  10 CENT "CASCARETS"  FOR LIVER AND BOWELS  Cure   Sick   Headache,   Constipation,  Biliousness, Sour Stomach, Bad  ' Breath���������Candy Cathartic.

The Origin '.of -Doughboy'  How many of our readers* know  why American soldiers are called  "doughboys"? Stars and Stripes  gives this explanation:  The term "doughboy" dates from  the civil war, when army wit was  aroused by the large, globular brass-  buttons on iniantry uniforms. Some  one���������he'"must have been a sailor���������  dubbed the buttons '���������'doughbov-s.'  beciuse thev.reminded him of the  b )iled dumplings j.>f. raised- dough  that are so frequently served in  ships' oi^ssps and are known to all  sailer- as "d Highboys.",.  Originally the name applied only  to infantrymen, but the American  expeditionary force applies it to all  branches and all grades of the service.  Everything that can please and charm your friend.
