Mr.  Ferris was the chief speaker of the  evening, and in a'very able manner  set foreh the needs of an active  board of trade in Grand Forks. Addresses were also made by many of  th,e other members-in attendance.  M-any subjects were touched upon,  but tbey all laid stress upon the  importance of having an organization which could adequately repre-*  sent the various interests of tbe community to the outside world.

This is because the  bees rest   more  What Shall I Give?  Mr. McKclvie arid His  Speakers Drew Only a  Medium-Sized. House in  This Gity       -  Were you at the political-meeting  ou Tuesday, night? If you were, what  did you think of it? That is exactly  what we want you to do���������think of  what you brought away from that  meeting that will help you in present day conditions. Was there a  broad sratesmanlike policy, defined?  If there was, what was it? Was  there any prouMse of'anylhing that  will be of benefit to you?   -i    "  No,".it was simply.the old line of  political talk, such as "No good  sending a .member^opposed-to-the  present government, etc.", etc.'". That  is you,.the electois of. Canada, who  ��������� are paying the piper, cannot expect  to get your just dues'from the present government if. you should send  an opposition member on the 22nd.  What do you. think of it?���������and are  you going to stand for it? ���������������  Most of   the   time  was spent in  trying to make capital out   of the  time Mr. McKelvie has lived in- the  constituency, on criticising Col. Ed  getl's platform, on Mackenzie King,  the tariff on fruit, and class- legislation; also Mr. Stacey, of Fraser valley,   claimed   that   the. government  had riot only spent 1 per cent of the  revenue on  agriculture, but  a little  over 2 per cent  had   been   actually  expended. Truly a magnificent sum  for a "just and generous"government  to expend on the basic industry of  Canada.supportingat least 75 p.c. of  her' population and in which 50 per  cent are actively engaged.   In  other  words, taking their own figures, out  of   $220,000,000  revenue   they'ex-  pended ������5,000,000. jr 2������ per cent.  ���������Mr. McKelvieclai ms  that he can  serve you  better than  Col. Edgett  because he   has  lived 31  years in  Vernon editing a Conservative paper,  and   Col.   Edgett   is only   a recent  comer. In reply   to  this argument  he say.  Did  it  .*old in the case of  our recent member,  who was a fel  low-townsman of   ours and   came  here about 20 years ago.    It is re  ported  that  Mr McKelvie is to be  .   rewarded for his long party services  and undertaking tbe forlorn hope of  carrying the government banner   in  this by-election by a seuatorship.  Col.   Edgett's  platform took  up  most of  Mr. McKelvie's  time.    He  tried   to   make   capital out of  the  planks for higher education for our  children and  better administration  of the   public lands, -laying that the  Dominion government had  nothing  to do with them, as they   were  under the jurisdiction of the province.  Col. Edgett's   plank calling for  retaining   the  present duty on fruit  came in for severe criticism, because  he said that Col. Edgett was going to  vote againet the present government  at Ottawa, and that the government  stood for the protection of the  fruit  industry. But the facts are that Col.  Edgett has pledged himself to  support any legislation   brought down  for the good of .the country, and   he  hopes to be able to support the gov*  ernmen't much more often than  he  will have to voto against it.  The fact that tho preoent farmers'  party at Ottawa are all from the  prairies and stand for free fruit  does not detract from the usefulness  j of   Col: Edgett should   he .elected,  I but  rather   enhances it.    After the  next general election there   will   be  farmers from all'he   different  provinces���������from   Ontario, Nova   Scotia,  New   Brunswick,   Quebec,    British  Columbia,   as   well   as   the prairie  provinces, all more or  less   producing fruit, and the farmers' pacty will  then'contain   diversified  interests,  just  the   same   as   the Liberal and  Conservative; parties -have   always  contained many diversified interests,  and -the "party'policy ��������� wilfbe that  which as nearly as possible protects  all these interests.   In the meantime  for the next two   years, Col. Edgett  will be doing good educational work  --work that can not bedone   unless  we send a farmer member to Ottawa  on the 22d inst. Furthermore,Pre8i*?  dent Wood of  Ue United Farmers  of Alberta came to Victoria in   Feb  ruary last and addressed the United  Farmers codvention meeting there  at   that   time  on cooperation, and  told us be could see no reason   why  the farmer's of British Columbia and  the farmers of   tbe prairie could not  get .together,   and   that they were  ready   to   co operate.    We   expect  great development along these  lines  next year.  ; It is most important that this  educational work at/Ottawa bedone.  because tbe farmers are going to  sweep the prairies at the next federal election.' MacLean's Independent  National Magazine sent their repren  sentative all over the west to find  out the true-situation, and in the  issue dated 15th October says:  [���������''There can be no reasonable doubt  whatever that the west at the next  iederal.election will go solidly agrarian." And there is no doubt' at all  that the farmer-soldier party will  be in a-position to dictate, holding  the balance of power, and no government will be safe without their  support.  Mr. McKelvie spent a great deal  of time���������and Capt. Wbittaker nearly all the time he was not giving us  the heroic stuff���������on Mackenzie King  Now, Col. Edgett is not in any  way  answerable   for   Mackenzie    King. I  The Liberals offered   their support,  and he naturally was glad to have it.  In the provincial campaign the Conservatives of   North  Okanagan are  supporting the  Farmers' candidate  against  the   Liberal  candidate,   so  you  will  see  the situation  is that  both  the   old   part ps   will   use the  Farmers' parly to prpvent their   old  hereditary   political   enemy    from  winning out. This you see in Yale���������  the   Liberals   throwing in their lot  with   the  farmers in North Okanagan, the   Conservatives'   doing   the  same again6t   the Liberals���������conclusive proof that there is  no alliance  in Yale with the Liberals.and therefore Col. Edgett  has nothing to do  with Mackenzie King's policy, and  he is certainly not in sympathy with  his actions dnring the war, if we got  the true version the other night,  Perhaps the class representation  cry is expected to be the largest vote  catcher.    This   is really ludicrous,  coming from the government party.  ( Continued on Pa(jc 2,)  taking tbe vote emphasis was laid on  the fact that a council was needed  that would be representative of all  the industries .of the city and the  valley.  It was decided io affiliate with  the Associiited Boards of Trade and  to have the organization incorporated.  Monthly meetings of the reorganized board will be held in the council chambers on the third Monday  evening of -each month. The first  regular meeting will be held on the  third Monday'eVe'tiibg.in'Deeember.  YIELD OF BUSH FRUITS  At the Central Experimental farm  the   average   yield  of the Herbert  .raspberry for two years on one row  ninety   feet   in   length  was at the  rate of 205 bushels per acre.  Under  field   conditions,    cultivated   raspberries   produce  from   50   to   100  bushels of crop per acre,  according  to the season.    Gooseberries   at   40  pounds per bushels yielded   at   the  rate of 909 bushels to the acre.   Red  currants gave   202   bushels to the  acre in one instance and 409 in   an������  other. These figures are taken  from  a new bulletin issued  by   the   Experimental farms at Ottawa on  the  subject of "Bush Fruits."   In  this  pamphlet   the  currant, gooseberry,  raspberry,    blackberry,    dewberry,  and loganberry are treated  in such  a   way as to   make clear the best  practice iu their cultivation  and  to  understand the merits of the different worthy varieties.   It is pointed  out   that the  ourrant, gooseberry  and raspberry grow wild   almost   if  not quite to the Arctic circle.   The  treatise is the resuit of  experiments  carried  on   at  the Central Experi-  meatal farm and the widely separated branch farms and stations. This  publication,   which   is    designated  Bulletin No. 94 and is available   at  the publications branch of   the  department of- agriculture,   contains  also a treatise on  common diseases  of bush fruits and the insects affecting them, with the methods of control.  comfortably during the winter in  Canada. One of the most important  things for good wintering is a populous'colony, consisting mainly of  young bees; another is an abundant  supply 'of wholesome stores in the  combs, and' the third is adequate  protection from the cold.  This bulletin, entitled "Wintering Bees in Canada," is available at  the publications branch of the department of agriculture, Ottawa.  In describing the wintering of bees  I'in the cellar the temperature for the  cellar is given as about 42 deg. F.  Some precautions as regards the  spring management of bees are re  corded in ihe bulletin.  News of the City  John Fredossoff was up before  Police Magistrate McCallum this  week, and he was sent to the 'Nelson  jail for six months. The charge  against the prisoner was that of  stealing various .articles, part of the  charge being proved. A plea was  made for the prisoner by his friends  that he was mentally unsound, and  the judge ordered him examined by  the physicians of the city. They reported that in their belief the man  was a confirmed kleptomaniac. In  view of Fredossoff's advanced age,  the hard labor was eliminated from  his sentence.  11. E. Jenne, who has been the  efficient manager of the Curlew  Creamery company in this city for  a number of years, expects to move  tu Everett, Wash., with his wife  and family {next week. Mr. Jenne has been very active in fraternal society circles while here, and  both he and his family will be  missed by the community. It is  likely that H. H. Henderson will  succeed Mr. Jenne as manager of the  Grand Forks branch.  ��������� Why give something perishable for  a Christmas present, that can last'at  most bub an hour or a day or a week,-  when the imperishable is under   your  hand?

WINTERING BEES  Large numbers of colonies of bees  are lost in Canada every year  through lack of proper care.and forethought, Serious, losses are due to  want of timely and proper preparation. F. W. L. Sladen, Dominion  apiarist, in bulletin No. 43, second  series of the Experimental Farms,  makes the statement that long and  cold wintering in many parts of Canada is not so hard on the bees as  might be imagined.

Their methods are autocratic  and dictatorial, and by no means representative of the  wishes of the country.  Standing as an Independent Candidate, endorsed by  Farmers, Veterans,. Liberals, Labour and Independent-  Voters, it follows that my actions cannot be subject to  the dictates of any political pa.rty. I stand on my platform, which has appeared in the public press from time  to time.  The old political parties have failed to meet the requirements of the people, and to live up to their promises. The time has arrived in our history when the interests of Canada, as a whole, can best be served by men  of independent^thought and action, who are unfettered  by party ties. Just legislation,-regardless of its source,  will receive my earnest support.  You will be doing yourself and your country the best  possible service by electiug me to represent your interests in the Federal house. You had faith in me while  overseas, and I trust that,:my record and and character display integrity sufficient to warrant you feeling that your  Empire defenders are worthy to be your Empire builders.

C  OFFICE:    COLUMBIA AVENUE AND LAKE STREET.  FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 19, 1920  Irrigation is, of course, the paramount issue  in the provincial election in this constituency.  We .understand that the Liberal candidate  has-received absolute assurances from Premier Oliver that the project now under- consideration will be completed in time for use  next summer if the Liberal government is returned to.power, and that a definite statement  on this subject.will be "made at .'the meeting  next Wednesday night. Those interested in  this matter���������and who is not?���������should be  present at the meeting to receive any state -  uient made on this subject first hand.  In Greenwood r ding the election of Dr.  MacLean, the present minister of education,  , is predicted'as a certainty.   Reports  favora  ble to the return of the present government  are, indeed, being received from all parts   of  the province.  ���������Nearly everybody in this part of the constituency appear to think that Col. Edgett  will.win in the Yale by-election, and if they  don't.change their minds before next Monday  night, his election seem-certain. Both candidates have a vigorous campaign, and in some  parts of the district the fight has been real  warm.  Uunder the Oliver government the depart  - merit of agriculture has, been -raised to the  dignity of a separate- portfolio, and the min  ister in charge, Hon. E. D. Barrow, gives his  whole attention  to the various; branches of  this important departmeut.   The underlying  policy of the government is to increase production by giving intelligent assistance aud  encouragement to farmers, .stock; raisers and  horticulturists already on the land, facilitating  cooperative marketing schemes, securing more  intensive cultivation, and bringing nevy areas  into production.  The high financial standing of British  Col  umbia is well ��������� set forth on the third page of  this issue of The Sun.   To the .Oliver government belongs   the credit   for .this   splendid  showing.  Revelstoke has returned a government  member by acclamation. This is the right kind  of a start for a big victory on the 1st.  Next Monday night everything will be over  in the Yale by-election except the celebration  of the victory. Both sides feel confident of success, but, according to precedent, one of the  candidates is doomed to disappo-'ntment. \  Bowster's rubber stamps are again running  where there is a ghost of a chance. Where  there'is no chance, the machine chooses some  inexperienced unfortunate to be the goat.  With the, rubber stamps all elected again,-  what chance would there be for independent  or progressive legislation?-���������Kaslo Kootenaian.  East and West  We complain sometimes that the west does  not understand older Canada, that our industries are defamed, our capitalists suspected,  and our political leaders distrusted. But have  we any adequate conception of the ^optimism,  the energy, the constructive quality and the  patriotic spirit' of the western people? Do we  realize as we should that they are buildiug a  social and political structure on the p.iairies  which-wili compare in virtue, in solidity and  finish, with the achievements of the pioneers  of these older provinces? It may be that the  "west does not fully understand our temper or  our ' outlook, but one is not more confident  that we of the east are free from reproach or  that we have made any great sacrifice of time  or money or effort in order to interpret ourselves to the western people and demonstrate  an interest and a patriotism which are not  diluted with a consideration of profit. Even  many of the political leaders of the older provinces are comparative strangers to the prairie  population, and except during a general election they seldom appear upon a western platform. It is good-fortune for Canada, and I am  sure'I speak with no thought.of any party interest or relation, that a representative of the  west has become prime minister and the leader of a national party, and surely .only national benefit would follow if political leaders of  British Columbia and the prairie provinces  could appeor more often before boards of  trade and Canadian olubs and industrial  or-  Of Gourse He Knew  "Go to father," she Raid,  When he asked her to wed,  Though she knew that he knew that  her father was dead,  A-.id she knew ehat he   knew  tlie  life he had led���������  So she knew that he knew what she  meant when she said,  "Go fo father." ���������  The land settlement and development policy  of the Oliver government is producing satisfactory results. The speculative owner is now  anxious^to dispose of his lauds upon reasonable terms. It is the iutention of the administration to extend its operations and to undertake more actively the task of constructing [and settlement roads and securing a desirable class of settlers. The government  policy of increasing production by .-means of  live stock and establishment of creameries  will be continued if.the Oliver administration  is returned to power.  The Liberal administration appeals to the  electorate for re-election in the firm confidence that the record of the past four years  of safe, sane and progressive administration  of the affairs of British Columbia has met  with the approval of every man and woman  who has the best interests of the province at  heart.  Who knifed Dick McBride*? Whodpfeated  Cowan, the Conservative candidate in Vancouver in 189(5? We ask Conservatives whose  fathers and grandfathers supported such  statesmen as John A. Macdonald, Hector  Langevin, Leonard Tilley, Charles Tupper, to  fully decide these questions to their own sat  i -faction before voting for the leadership of  Mr. Bowser. It must be confessed that in the  past eight or ten years the Conservative party,  '.���������)th federal and provincial, has fallen from  the leadership of statesmen into that of political mountebauks. You can not purgo the  party by electing 1 In-so men to ppwer. The  only way is to keep defeating them until even  ganizations in older Canada, a'nd'if through  Grain Growers' conventions and other western  organizations the industrial, financial *end political: leaders of the east could establish a  more intimate relation with the virile forces in  town "end country which are moulding the  temper and fashioning the institutions of the  newer provinces. If there'are differences between east and weet���������and it is easy to exaggerate the gravity of such differences as prevail���������they are chiefly the result of distance  and want of intimacy and knowledge, for tbe  east can give the west" no lessons in patriotism or public spirit, nor need the west  look to the east for examples in ideals or  achievement. By vigor and courage in political controversy the truth is established, and  it is not to be expected that either east or west  will yield its sincere convictions or recognize  any final authority in public policy save the  parliamentary majority.  There is said to be an oriental bird, called  the santamingo, which is believed by foolish  sailors to give its possessor great content and  peace of mind. According to a verse in Punch:  East from  the Mahanadi and  north of the  Nicobar  You will come to Evening Island  where the  santamingoes are;  Their wings are sunrise orange and their tails  are starlight blue;  You catch a santamingo and all your dreams  come true.  Let us all try to feel that we possess santamingoes and with serenity of mind and high  courage and patriotic ardor set ourselves to  the tasks and duties which constitute the  obligations of citizenship in a free country.���������  Sir John Willison.  To the Electors of Yale  (Continued from Par/e 1 )  Take,'for instance, the composition  of the members comprising the  house at Ottawa at the present time.  It is about as follows: 41 per cent  lawyers, 19 psr cent doctors. 2 per  cent farmers, 1 per cent returned  soldier, and 36 per cent manufactur  era and other business men." Just  think of it, the soldiers and farmers,  comprising at least 50 per cent of  of the population, have only 3 per  cent representation, and the balance  of 97 per cent, represent the balance  of the population. Surely the worst  kind of class representation! Do you  wonder that the farmers and soldiers  want greater representation  Be free men and women. Use  your own brains, Do not let the  party politicians herd you to the  polls with the old machine Btuff.  They have worked practically all of  us every time an election has taken  place for as long as we can remember  Do**you:;not stand for cleaner politics? Of you do. But you have been  helpless under the old party political system If you voted at all there  was ho alternative but to vote for  one of-them.  This is your great opportunity.  Here is a new party that has a large  following already, and after the  next federal elections will be a. powerful one���������a party without any  strings on il, and no party machine,  with half the population of Canada,  behind it, bred in the country away  from city temptations, with more  than average business capacity���������  every farmer must be a fair business  man these days to make his farm  pay. Surely fine material.to build a  new reform party out of. There are  certainly great possibilities.  The old parties always make their  strongest appeal on what afiects you  from the material side.  Well, let us  consider   it.    What is   supporting  Grand Forks today? Is it not agri  culture   Bolely?    What would your  homes, stores, and public buildings  be worth were it not for the trade of  the   fsrmers?   Practically   nothing.  You would be   a second Phoenix,  would you not? Well, then if your  prosperity   is depending upon the  farmers, do you not think  they  are  worthy of your support  when   they  ask it of you to help get- a fair rep-  representation   in    governing    the  country?   Are   not your    interests  identical with theirs?   If they pros  per you prosper.   They are  loyally  supporting your   town.    Will   the  town help them in return?   That is  what;they want to know.  Also, do not forget that Col Edgett is the soldiers' candidate���������the  soldiers  in   Canada who fought so  splendidly   your   battles in France  and Belgium. They want more rep������  resentation at Ottawa.   Is it asking  too much of you   for the sacrifices  they  made fcr you to help them in  this little matter?   They made great  sacrifices for the people of Canada;  they werethe finest soldiers in Eu>  rope, and now that the war has been  won largely by their efforts,  surely  they are entitled to a fair representation in the government of  Canada.  Had   they   and  their British com  rades failed there would be no government   in Canada  by Canadians  today. Surely they  are entitled  to  fair   representation   in  the government they saved.  Capt. Whittaker is no longer provincial president of theG.W.V.A.,  as advertised by the Conservatives,  having resigned very suddenly previous to the June convention in  Ferniein 1920. He is now going  back on his comrades. You will re  member he waB here speaking for  tbeY.M.C.A. early in 1918, when,  being an able-bodied man, heshould  have been in France helping to  check the German drive.  Mr. McKelvie found the veterans  in the Okanagan so solidly behind  Col. Edgett that he sent out a distress call, and Capt. Whittaker, who  is always available as a speaker,  was secured to help him camouflage  the real issues by pulling off the  Mackenzie King stuff. Ask some of  the 102nd battalion what they think  of Capt. Whittaker.  Please think seriously over these  matter's before you vote on the 22nd  inst.

That fund is being raised  throughout the - British empire to  combat disease and distress in Europe  The Canadian Red Cross through all  its provincial divisions will make" the  appeal in week of November 20-29.  Mr. Hoover, who is recognized a  the best authority in the world upon  European conditions, spoke with the  quiet conviction of one whose uies-  sav;o was sufficient in itself. In com  tnencing he said he felt some embar  rassment lest his presence  in Canada  might bemisinterpreted as urging the  Canadian people to further sacrifice.  He.said he realized that the sacrifice  of tbe Canadian people, individual by  individual, had been far in excess of  that of his own people, but he said he  k'ne'w that the charity of the Canadian  heart was inexhaustible, and he felt  there would be no resentmentagainst  his coming to discuss with them.

"To ine," Mr Hoover said, "the  greatest problem of the human heart  in the world today is this problem of  a myriad of waifs and orphan hungry  children through eastern and centra  Europe The slaughter of fifteen million   men   could  "not   but have left  millions of helpless and hungry children in its track, and upon their well-  being must depend the upbuilding of  Europe. There are literally millions  of children in those countries sunk so  low in destitution- that they can not  be absorbed. They must receive ex-  trordinary assistance  "We have found by'experience that  the cost of caring for a waif child is  approximately'S3 00 a month; that of  the supplies that are required by imports about $1.00 is needed,and therefore the dollar that we provide to  gether with local support practically  preserves the life of one child. It is  not much of a sum���������SI.00 per month  per child���������and although the calls may  bo very considerable upon your people and upon ours, we still have something aftor we have cared for our  children and our neighbor's children  "Our present problem over the  forthcoming winter appears-to be  about 3,500,000 to 4,000,000 children  We feel that if could find among all  the nations $4,000,000 per month, we  iionld solve this problem. Surely it is  not much for a whole world to .find,  It is a heavy burden for charity, but  it is so appealing in its necessity that  I have no doubt that charity will find  it'These children are the obligation  of every man and woman in the western hemisphere, for we have suffered  less, but beyond this they are a charge  on the heart of.the entire world.

The Last Million Dollar Bond Issue  of the Oliver Government  which was put on the market in October, 1920, brought a  premium of over $33,000, making the low net rate of interest  4| per cent, per annum, a better price than that received by  other provinces for a similar loan. .

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 ot a great advertiser will be mentioned.  The same rule is true of  smaller cities and towns.  The successful merchants  are the advertisers.

Most Canadians are  unaware that in 1621 King'James I.  ���������'of England, and VI. of Scotland, as  Kihg of Scotland, and as a Scottish  ���������measure, granted to Sir William'  Alexander (afterwards Earl of Stirling) the territory now forming the  "whole of the Provinces of Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, and Prince Ed-  ���������ward Island, and parts of Quebec and  of the present State of -Maine, on tho^  ���������sole condition of paying annually  ���������"���������one penny of Scottish money, if so  much be demanded," the purpose of  the grant being that Sir William  might carry out a project he had in  ~ mind' of making of this vast territory  a New Scotland In America, as there  was already a New England and a  New Franco."  The story of Sir William Alexander  and his efforts to carry out his great  project is beside the present purpose.  It all came to little enough at the time  but bore fruit as we know long afterwards.   Royal encouragement to tho ,  fichome given  by King James  was  ���������continued and amplified by his son';  and successor, Charles I., and among  other marks of favor the last named ���������  iBoverelgn made a grant of arms to ...

Later, as a separate act, tho Baronets of Nova Scotia were given tho  privilege of tislns this same shield,  with its loescutc'hcon as their badge  or coat of armr;. An idea got abroad  ���������somehow that the shield was theirs  primarily, nnd  only  "borrowed"   bv |  41... .-.- -     '���������      -��������� - '  ongs primarily and by Royal authority to the country and not to tho  Knights Baronot of Nova Scotia. Its  use by their Order was a different  matter altogether, and with quito  different concomitants.  But the mistake referred to accounts no doubt in some measure for  what took place in rolation to the  Provincial coat of arms at tho time  of Canadian Confederation. The ancient arms were then found "in possession" in this Province. Thoy were  displayed in the doors of the Province building, and are to bo .seen  there still, and In tho old Great Seal  the province foi--it:' ncal. etc., when   of the Province.   But at the time of  in lator times "Nova Scotia" became  Confederation tho origin and author-j  ft reality.   Tho shield, however, bc-jity of these anna had boon forgotten. 1  ���������It was thought that the Province had  little ground for using armorial bearings which (as was puppoaed). belonged In reality to an order of Baronets.    The record was not looked  for In the right place, namely, In the  Lyon Office In Edinburgh, where it  might have boon found, and so  tho  College of Heralds In London, supposing no doubt that the field .was  clear, proceeded to prepare arms and  a now Beal for Nova Scotia as a Province of tho Dominion of Canada, not'  moved thereto by tho Provincial authorities of the day, but In opposition  to their wishes.   The new Great Seal  was received Jn December, 1869, but  was neither welcomed nor adopted  nor proclaimed  by  tho Lieutenant-  Go vornor-in-Council, but pigeon-holed, and left unusod for years afterwards.     If tho Provincial authorities had been aware of the strength  of tho case for the old arms it is natural to   uupposo   that   they would  haive hold out against   auy   change,  but in course of time they gave way,  and allowed tho matter to go by default in favor of tho now order.  But even then the ancient arms did  not go wholly out of memory.     Tho  fihield is still to bo seen, not only on  the old office doors in tho Province  building,.but on odd pieces of jewelry  of much lator date,    and   the   full  achievement appears on the Bank ot  Nova Scotia ?10 notes, of the issue of  January 2nd, 1919!    In this last caso  the Indian sinister supportor is shown1  in a sitting posture and the unicorof  charging around the dexter plde ot  tho shield���������the shield itself is of a!  shapo characteristic of tho period of!  debased   horaldry   and   is   wrongly'  marked red!   All these details am'  wrong, but the interesting fact remains that in   casting   about for a  suitable design for its notes the Banis  of Nova Scotia solected the ancient  rather than tho modern arms of tho.  Province     The Historical Societies!  of Nova Scotia now ask the rectiflca-'  tion of the blunder committed when1  tlie ancient and lawful arms of Nova'  Scotia were supplanted by a now and'  commonplace doslgn of salmon and*  thistles.
