B. 0., FRIDAY,   MAY 14, >1920  "Tell me what you Know is true:  I can guess as well as you."  81.00 PER YEAR  L FUSSED  City Electrician's Appoint  ment Connrmed--No-  tice of Tax and Rate  Levy Bylaw  The mayor and all the aldermen  were present at the regular meeting  of the city council on Monday evening.  An enquiry was received from  an  Alberta town regarding the chemical  fire engine which is offered  for sale  by the city.   The clerk was instruct*  ed to send the available information  respeoting it and to ask for an offer.  A letter was read   from   Managar  Niles, of   the   Bank of  Commerce,  stating that the bank was   prepared  to   advance   the   money, at 7 per  :   cent interest, to meet   the payment  ot the bonds maturing on  the 15th  inst.  The matter of establishing a new  city   pound   with   shade   was discussed.   The question  was  referred  to the board of  works for investiga  tion.  . The, usual grist of ..accounts., were  ordered to be paid.  The city electrician was instructed  to turn in his pipe thawing book  and also his stock book to the city  office.   :  The finance committee was instructed to dispose of a sufficient  amount of Victory bonds to meet  the payment of tbe bonds maturing  July 15: "������.'.;  The   chairman   of   the  board of  works reported that tbe board - was  endeavoring  to secure a  supply of  gravel for graveling the  streets.   He  recommended tbar an effort be made  to secure the waste material from the  Rock Candy mill for  this  purpose,  . and that steps be taken to  ascertain  what it can be laid down in the city  for; also that the clerk be instructed  to write to J. A.   McCallum, general  road foreman,  asking him  to take  up with the   public   works   department the matter of government assistance   for   the  upkeep  of main  streets  io   municipalities   used   as  links   in   the  transprovine al highway.   Both recommendations  were  approved.  He also reported that the  mayor,   the   fire chief and himself  had inspected  tbe old   bouses  belonging to Dr. Boyce and   to Mrs.  McKay, near   the  Great   Northern  s a'ion,a"nd that they had condemned  the   same   and   ordered  them to be  removed.  A resolution was adopted confirming the appointment of T.  Meaks, -of Wilkie, Sisk., as city  electrician at a salary of Si52 50 per  month.  The chairman   of  the   water  and  light committee reported that W. J.  Galipeau had been instructed   to remove   the   loose  sections in the re  eervoir.  Tbe clerk was instructed to take  the necessary steps to secure notice  of water rights for the city on Mill  creek.  A. bill for $605 for the maintenance of three men from this city Jn  caused .some discussion. On .motion,  the clerk was instructed to correspond with the finance minister regarding it.  The clerk was instructed to send  1000 folders descriptive of the city  and valley to Agent General Wade  in London.  The assessor was instructed to  complete the assessment roll in conformity with Section 211 of the Municipal act.  Aid. Hull was granted permission  to introduce two money bylaws.  Both were advanced to the third  reading stage,,  Aid. Hull gare-notice that at the  next meeting .of the council he  would ask leave to introduce a tax  and rate levy bylaw.  , At a special meeting of the coun  cil Wednesday evening the two  money bylaws were reconsidered  and finally paesed, and Aid., Hull  was granted leave to introduce a tax  and rate levy bylaw. The latter was  advanced to the third reading stage.  Grand Forks and Danville  Open the Baseball Sea-  nmd  up   to<vn.

Game  News of the City  On Friday last onotber  would-be  clever artist was seated in  the  picture show, giving vent to  the most'  abusive  language, when  Geo. Stan-  field, of the provincial police, - hap  pened to come along.    Needless to  Bay   that   the scene was changed iu  quick-change  artist  time, and   the  would-be "it" was lauded in jail by  the provincial   policeman     He was  brought before   the magistrate the  folldwingmorning, when he said his  name was Lewis Briggs.    This scene  ended by Briggs paying a   fine   of  $15 and costs���������$2���������the amount being $17 altogether. . Briggs   is   still  wondering where the other $2'came  in for costs.  I A. Spinks, city electrician of  Grand Forks for the past four or  five yearly expects to leave today for  Sacramento, Cal., where he has a  position waiting for him. Mrs.  Spinks left for that city on Wednesday. Their friends in this city wish  them success in their new southern  home.  Malcolm Henderson had a head-  on ooilision with an American car  at the bridge near Christina lake last  Sunday afternoon. Both cars were  filled with people, but beyond some  minor bruises and a few bloody  noses, no one sustained an serious  injury. The cars were badly darn*  aged.  \V. Howe, a workman on the  new road below Laurier,was brought  to the Grand Forks hospital this  evening, having been severely injured in an accident. He was suffering from a crushed foot and  other injuries.  Dr. Ponton, of the Vancouver  General hospital, was in the city  this week on business in connection wtth the movement having for  its object the standardization of the  hospitals in this province.  A dispatch from Victoria says  that S. R Almond has been appointed registrar of voter under the  new Elections act in Grand Forks  riding.  the  Old Men's Home at Kamloops Truil  Mrs. Barry Logan will leave next  week for .a visit to Fire valley  prior   to joining   her   husband   in  A good g.me but an unsatisfactory  finish,    was   the   verdict   after   the  baseball game between Danville and  the home .team here this week. '; The  only  run ..of   the  game was scored  after the   umpire   had    booted   a  grounder   in    the    fifth,   allowing  Pitcher Foley of tbe Danville  team  to score. In the ninth  inning,  with  two out, Grand  Forks had Cagnon  and   Duffield   on third and   second  as runners, when the batter, Kid well,  hit a grounder outside of  third base  line, which took a   hop  and  struck  Cagnon, who was running in on the  hit.    The  Danville   umpire   called  Cagnon   out, but  the   decision   is  open to question.    The hit was   undoubtedly foul, so there'was no  necessity  in   fielding  it, and  Cagnon  was   certainly   right   in   taking   a  chance tha' he might  be sent  back  to third on the.play.  Tbe play'was interesting from the  start, Grand Forks getting a  runner  to third  in   the   first inning,   after  blanking Danville in their  half   by  three strikeouts.   Nothing more wa's  done on either side until   the   fifth,  although   in   the   third,   with  the  bases full, the Grand Forks pitcher,  Duffield,   pitched himseld out of a  bad hole by striking out three men.  In tbe fifth the umpire took a hand,  or,more correctly,a foot,in the game,  when begot in the way of a grounder,  allowing Foley to score the only run  of the game.  In the sixth only three  batters faced each   pitcher.    In   tbe  seventh all the   home   batters  flied  out   to   fielders, although   Danville  succeeded in getting a man to  third  in their half.   .In the eighth   both  sides got a man as far second. Then  came the famous memorable fluke  of  the   ninth   inning, Grand Forks  being last at bat. It was a most disappointing finish, but the next time  the   same   teams    meet   a   record  crowd will surely be present  to   see  the   breaks go the other way.    Duffield, the Grand   Forks   pitcher, did  good work, striking out  fifteen   batters, and Pitcher Foley, of Danville,  struck   out the same number.    Hits  off Duffield 4,  off Foley   3;  errors,  Grand Forks 2,  Danville 3;  passed  to first on balls, none.   The  batting  order was as follows:  Danville���������Ray Foley, 1 b.; Brink-  man, c, McFee, 3 b.; Powers, l.f.;  Kadigan, s.s.; W, Rollins, 2 b.; Roy  Foley, p.; Logsdon, c.f.; O. Rollins, r.f.

The day was a little chilly for  good ball, and the spectators rather  resented the delay in startiug the  game, caused by Manager   PaJiu.ki,  important each year.   A few advantages of the annual cover crops may  prove of use to our   prowers     Tbe.y  supply nitrogen, so essential   to   the  growth   and   fruiting   of   the trees;  they supply humus to keep our  so 1  loose and friable and hold heat   and  moisture, and give us the advantage  of   clean   cultivation   at   the time  when   most ' needed, that is during  tbe period of the year   when    water  shortage  may occur.    Tbey can be  usefully applied in   ripening up our  season's growth and   thereby  allowing the trees to go  into   the   winter  well   matured,   which,    with     our  changeable winters, is of such   great  importanc in the prevention of win  ter injury.    Some of  our   orchards  which have received shallow  irriga  tion and have been in clover or sod  for a number of years  have  a  very  shallow   root  system   and must be  handled very carefully to avoid cutting   too   many  large roots, and in  some  cases   the   annual cover crop  should be disced in.   But ploughing  is  to  be preferred, as no operation  so thoroughly stirs up the soil  and  puts it in such good   condition   to  store moisture and sunshine.  The procedure is; Seed every otbe  row in the middle of A.ugu_t or the  beginning of September with one or  one and a half bushels of   hairy   or  fall vetch to the acre.   This allows  wagons to haul fruit on the   unseeded   rows, aud the  pickers   will   do  very little harm by walking   on   it.  This plant stands our winters   very  well   and  starts early  in the spring  and makes a rapid growth.  As soon  as the ground-is workable seed   the  unseeded rows to  spring vetch, one  or one and a half bnshels to the acre.  By the end of May   or   middle   of  June   the   vetches   are    ready   to  plough under. Just  before ploughing we give the crop a good irrigation; roll before we start to  plough,  and put   on   a  very Bharp   rolling  coulter and   keep it high   enough  just   to   enter   the   soil a couple of  inches; then disc tbe land well  and  harrow.   If   the  soil  is  moist and  warm tbe vegetable matter is  fioon  rotted, and with good  cultivation is  soon   distributed   through the soil.  Where large amounts ofj manure are  not available   this method puts our  land in the best possible  condition  to apply fertilizers when needed.   A  few years of this Treatment will give  us good results in increased  growth  and crops.  Prairie People Arc Eager  Parchasers of Kettle  Valley Orchards and  Farms  T-vo df'sils for Kettle vaIi^v   oipIi-  ards   were   closed   thi������   nmniinj/ hv  Robertson &, Egg.

The property is situated a couple of  miles east of town.   The second deal  was tbe   sale   of M.   Fr'aokovitcb's  ten acre  orchard, just  east   of   the  city,    which   comprises  about  700  bearing   fruit   trees, to C. A. Craw,  ford,   of  Cowley,   Aha.   Mr. Crawford will bring   his   family to this  city as soon as possible.  Two transfers were also made  through the agency of Meggitt &  Knight this morning. Mrs. John  Ross sold her homestead of 1-60  acres, east of town, to R. T Rinson,  of Eniwistle, Alta., the consideration being in the neighborhood oi  $2500. Mr. Ronson has three sons  who will move to this city. The  Ketchen ranch, comprising lh acres,  was also sold today to W. B". Robinson, who comes from the same Alberta towu as Mr. Ranson. The  price paid was S1S00.  Another transfer of real estate was  made earlier in the week, when H.  W. Sturgeon,of Winnipeg, purchased  theacreage property south of the city  belonging to Sam E. Siddell through  the Meggitt it Kr.ight agency. Mr.  Sturgeon will take possession at  once, and he expects bis family to  arrive here next week.  E. C.

C.  OFFICE:    COLUMl'.IA AVENUE AND LAKE STREET.  FRIDAY, MAY 14, 1920  It seems to be a natural characteristic of a  person with an uneasy' conscience to have  an antipathy for cemeteries. And we can assign no other cause for the hatred which the  editor of our local contemporary appears bo  entertain for the burial grounds in this city.  The city cemetery, we might added, was considered a reputable place until tue editor of  the Gazette'became chairman of the cemetery  committee. As there is no likelihood of him  retaining the position very long, the sequential inference is, that it will soon regain its  good name, and people living within half a  mile of it need be in no haste to move to other  sections of the city. If the chairman of the  cemetery committee would rearrange his judg-  pient,- and transfer the contempt which he  entertains for the cemetery to his own paper,  and the esteem he has for his paper to the  cemetery, there is. no reason why he should  not gain an immediate reputation for wisdom.  There will be no overproduction of foodstuffs as long as the farmers have to pay five  and six dellars a day for farm laborers.  Juvenile athletic prodigies do not generally  become really great athletes. Ordinarily the  boy who starts with natural ability and improves his talent normally year by year is the  one that ultimately reaches the top. It would  be interesting to know whether the reason is  physical or psychological.  Tablets from ancient Babylon, which belong  to Stanford University, show distinctly the  prints of the fingers that moulded them more  than four thousand years ago. Few "footprints  on the sands of time" have endured as long,  and even little Johnnie's fingor marks on the  pantry door can hardly last longer.  Col. Lawrence, Palmer had an amazingly  wide knowledge of the language, [customs and  character of the Arabs, and, like Col. Lawrence, he succeeded in his mission; but before  he could leave the desert he was murdered by  hostile Arabs. He is buried in St. Paul's  Cathedral.  In collecting $5,500,000,000 internal rev-  en ve during the calendar year 1919 the United  States accomplished a feat never before  ���������achie.ved. The great task was done without  eont'usion and without destroying production  or business enterprise.  There is an old saying, "Don't look for a  leak in a gas pipe with a lighted match: you  might find it." Most people regard the saying  as a joke, but there is still need enough to  take it seriously. Only a few weeks a<'0 ex-  ploding gas and the fire that followed killed  four people in a western twon. When you notice the odor of gas the only safe light is an  electric torch.  Time, the inexorable critic, leaves nothinu  except the intrinsically great and the essentially good.  The remarkable feat of Col. Thomas Lawrence, the young English scholar from the  University of Oxford, who won over, the Arabian armies under Emir Fctsal to thn side of  the allies, is much like thnt of an earlier  scholar, __dward Henry j';ilnier, professor of  Arabic in the University of Cambridge, whom  the British government in 1882 sent into the  desert to keep the Arab tribes from joining a  revolt against the Egyptian government.  Like  The wear-your old-clothes clubs that have  become popular in England and that are gaining a foothold in this country have.advantages  that may make great international orders of  them. Membership, instead of calling for'an  assessment, means only having and wearing  an old suit; and old clothes are always more  comfortable than new ones. Moreever, rank  must necessarily depend on the condition of  the clothes, and that as time goes on will become���������-shall we say ranker?���������so that merely  maintaining membership will automatically  promote .the member, without fees, to the  higher levels of the order. A"\amde of those  who have attained the thirty-third degree  should by worth seeing, says the Youth's  Companion.  Indicative of the impression Created in various parts of the country in respect of the manner in which the public accounts of this province for the Inst fiscal year were presented to  tqe legislature by the minister of finance, the  following excerpts from editorial comment will  be read by British Columbians with particular  interest:  Says the Toronto Globe: "The government  of British Columbia has set a good example  to other governments by the full, clear, aud  complete manner in which it has published its  public accounts for the last fiscal year."  The Edmonton Journal: "The example  given by British Columbia should have a beneficial effect elsewhere."  The Financial Post: "The first annual statement of public accounts of any Canadian government���������-federal or provincial���������to be issued  with revenue and expenditures of each department of the government segregated under  one heading, and with corresponding- tables  showing actual and estimated revenue and expenditures in each item side by side was  tabled in the British Columbia legislature last  week. This business-like form of presenting  the public accounts is the culmination of a  series of important improvements in government auditing that have characterized the accounts and estimates of the coast province  during the past two or three years."  The Monetary Times: "Theaccounts for the  year have been prepared so that the cost of  each unit of service may be known and compared from year to year. The cost of each department and of each subdivision of the department is shown, including salaries, maintenance of buildings, and all  miscellaneous  ex-  i  penses."  Canadian Finance: "The public acceunts of  British Columbia recently tabled in the ligis  lature are further striking proof of the many  improvements- in * governmental accounting  which have resulted in placing expert accountants in charge of such matters. The accounts  referred to enable any interested person to  ascertain immediately not only the cost of  operating, and the revenue derived from each  department of the government, but also from  each division or department of that branch.  The public accounts now give reliable information readily obtainable and easily understood regarding the values, received for monies  expended. Although Manitoba had a start of  two years in its efforts to improve govevn-  jmental accounts, it must be admitted that,  (British Columbia already has taken the 1-��������������������������� :  ! in this very important work. British Colli"  ' dia's public accounts are particularly lucid a i  understandable."  The Canadian Municipal Journal: "As a  model in efficiency and compilation the report  is worth following, not only by other provinces, but by the municipalities."

While angling  in Smelter   lake  a  few days ago he  caught   a  big   black fish of peculiar   ^ ..    t   formation. On close  examination   he   who had some appreciation of   letters  Unappreciated Laureates  The poets laureates of England  have net always been such as a committee of critics,' or even of represent  ative readers, would have selected for  the crown. The late Alfred Austin,  author of some very pretty verses, was  by no means the weakest poet to hold  the honor; but it was generally believed to exceed his merits. In the  recent Life and Letters of Lady Dorothy Nevill an anecdote, is related of  the meeting of the poet and a distin*  guished lawyer���������a man endowed with  more with than kindness.  "May I ask, Mr. Austin," said the  lawyer soon after they were introduced, "do you find that poetry  pays?"  "Thank you," replied Austin, good  naturedly   overlooking   the imperti  nence of the question.    "I  do pretty  well;   I   always manage to keep the  wolf from the door.'*  "And pray, do you read your  poetry to the wolf?"  The uncalled-for cruelty of such a  thrust far exceeds its wife, witty  though it undoubted was. Much more  comfortably enjoyable is the oft-  quoted    comment   of   a   British peer  noticed something odd about its right  side.    Being of an investigating turn  boiling  It did.  of mind, he decided to see   if  wouldn't solve  th_ mystery.  Taking the fish from the   hot  water,  he saw,the words "All Hands" quite  plainly branded on its side. Mr^Ross  is now exhibiting the   branded  "por������  son of the fish's skin   as  evidence of  tlie veracity of his tale.     The history  surrounding-  the     branded   fish   is  shrouded in mysterv-    It might, however, have had   a   thousand  different  origins,   A big four masted schooner  on Smelter ocean may have struck an  uncharted stump in midsea and foun-  erech and the crew, about to  perish,  probably   had   sufficient   foresight to  brand the fish ahd send   it shoreward  as. a   last message  to their anxious  wives and   relatives,   the  inscription  in this cise   meaning, of course, that  '���������all hands" were in peril.   And still,  a,'ain, it is possible that some   highly  civilized race of people, yet undiscov.  ored by the hardy   explorer, may  re-  si'Je  at the  headwaters of the North  Fork, who  have   taken   to  branding  the   fish   and   are herding tliem like  Texas   steers.    In   this    case    "All  Hands"   would    probably   mean   tiie  name of the tribe  claiming   jurisdic  tion over these fish     Or (and this, to  our mind, is the most   pmbab'e  solu  t''in)    perhaps    the     Gran'l     Forks  .Moiriian and Stream club has   com-  Winv-Q I branding the fish   in  Smelte'*  lake    if this last hypothesis is cerWit  niii'r<    rem a: in    no   doubt  as   to the  me -fling of the mystic   words     They  w >uld .simply be a wa-ning to  poach*  ers to keep "all hands" off.  on the appointment to the laureate-  ship in 1790 of the feeble and ridiculous versifier, Henry Pye.

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.  \2 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 of 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.  <&#  i  B  M THE   SU_v;    GRAND    FORKS,    B.JX  NEW  ICE CREAM PARLORS  "*MapIe Leaf" JLcc Cream  Crushed Fruit Sundaes  Special Sundaes  Ice Cream Sodas  Phosphates  Milk Shakes  Finest Parlors in the Boundary  Country.
