C, FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 22, 1918  $1.00 PER YEAR  Pays Fine Tribute to Late  ���������Capt. McQuarrie and a  Grand Forks Soldier  Killed in Action  Pte. Murray Janes, who has been  in the front line trenches since  Bill (late kaiser) started tbe  late war, in France on October 9  wrote the following letter to one of  his friends in this city:  Dear Old Pal:���������Things are moving so .fast these days that by the'  time I get a letter started it is time  to move to another front. I suppose  you are licking up the good news  these days of our little Canadian  army and all the fine things the boy8  are doing. You can't hold them  back once they get started. They  started August 8,'and if you read  today's papers, you will see they  are still going strong;  Old boy, lam sorry  to  tell  you  that I heard that Capt.   McQuarrie  was killed in action.   If this is so, I  want to say that the corps   has  lost  one   of  its   best officers and gentlemen. He was white all over and not  afraid of anything.    I  have been in  the   line   with   him  a  good many  times, and there was not a  man  in  the battalion but what would go anywhere with him.    I was in his company at Lens.Passchendaele, Merri-  court. There was always  something  doing in   no  man's land when Don  had  charge.    I  have  not seen him  since April, when he was  wounded  at  Merricourt, as  I  left the line at  that time myself.    I am more than  sorry   to   hear   that   he  has  been  killed.  I ran across Bill Laugbtoi], Dug  Carter and Bill Pearson yesterday.  They were all feeling fine. But  there is something wrong with Bill  Pearson. I had a couple of hours'  talk with him. Do you know, I believe that Bill is in love. He says  Yancouver for him after the war. I  don't blame him, as this war is  bound to do something for a fellow.  I don't think Grand Forks will be  big enough for many ol the boys  when the war is over.  Well, old pal, I told you last sum  aier the war would be over this  fall. It was my hunch. I think this  month will finish the fighting. The  Germans are raising hell over here  now. They know they are licked,  and they are destroying everything  they can. I can  see from   where  I  to get when one is going ahead all  tbe time. I used to..divide with  Jimmy McDougaU, but poor Jimmy  is gone. He was one of the best, puis  a man could have. He was a volunteer and did his bit to the last. He  did not wait till the thing was over  to come. Well, old boy, I hope by  time you get this letter the game  will be finished and we will be waiting for a boat to old British Columbia. Heinie can't hold out much  longer.   The jig is up.

The Great Northern  Railway company replied.that they  would be willing to buy, if not for  the fact that the United'States government had-take-over all railways  and the chances were-equal that the  railways of the United would, aiter  the" war. never, go back to private  ownership. As a consequence, the  Great Northern was unwilling to  speculate in the purchase of the  Spokane & British Columbia line.

Owing to tbe excessive rains this  autumn, potatoes in some districts  have become infected with rot, and  many have been harvested under  unfavorable conditious. In many  instances they have been stored in  cellars before being properly dried.  Potatoes showing any indication of  rot should not be stored with sound  ones. This is especially true if there  are abnormal conditions of moisture,  as such conditions will cause a  greater activity of the fungus and,  consequently, quicker rotting of the  potatoes.  Potatoes should be stored in as  dry and cool a place as possible  without freezing. The drier they can  be kept the less rot will develop.  This year, especially, potatoes  should be carefully sorted within  from three to four weeks after storing in tbe cellar, those showing any  signs of developing rot being discarded. This will protect the remainder of the crop.  Food is badly needed, and it is  our positive duty to take good care  of what we have produced.  waxed impatient.

FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 22, 1918  The end of the war has come, but Canada  must not relax her efforts to increase the production  of food.    In addition  to the allies,  whose productive powers have been hampered  by the war and who need imports  from  this  continent to build up a reserve, the people  of  the neutral  nations must&lso be considered.  Attention is  also  called to the fact that the  countries of the defeated enemy nations  have  to be considered, as in some cases millions  of  helpless people are facing starvation.    Counting Russia,  Austria-Hungary,  Turkey,  Bulgaria, the neutral countries, and France,. Belgium, Italy and Great Britain, a grand  total  of 250,000,000 people are.short:of food.   Canada will have a hungry  market for  her agricultural produce, and our greatest possible effort to maintain and increase production   will  be none too great. '������..���������.  To formulate national plans for meeting the  new and critical conditions in the livestock  industry accompanying restoration of peace,  some of the leading Canadian livestock ,men  and representative meat packers are being  called to a conference by Hon. T. A. Crerar,  minister of agriculture. Those who have been  watching the situation realize that Canada has  the opportunity of placing her livestock industry on a broader and a sounder basis than  ever before. The war has stimulated livestock production in Canada. An even g.ieater  stimulus is expected to develop with the restoration of normal commercial communication, as the breeding stock of Europe has seriously declined during the war in nearly all  countries. A heavy demand is bound to be  made upon this continent for meats and breeding stock for some years to come. The minister of agriculture is calling upon farmers and  livestock men to maintain their operations on  the war time scale.  doubt, many a Canadian womanV will bless  them.  When Belgian refugees began  pouring  into. England these two sisters began distributing chocolates and cigarette to Belgian  sol*-  diers who landed at the docks  of Southampton.    It was  not long before a hospital ship  arrived bringing British wounded:   Since that  day these two girls, unaided, have met every  hospital ship, with very few exceptions,  and  have   given to  each  soldier and officer this  this thoughtful little greeting.   They wear no  uniform and are the only women on the berth.  They never get in the way  and  always manage  to  greet all the men.    Considering that  one sister  has  to  do a whole ship all alone  when two ships happen to dock at the same  time, it is easy to see that their self-imposed  mission is not an easy one. Special boxes have  been made carrying several kinds of cigarettes.  Fastened to this is a pouch with many pockets  holding post cards, pencils,matchesand newspapers. At first the entire cost was borne by  these two splendid girls and their friends, but  now the plain  chocolates  and  cigarettes are  from a fund collected in the town, while  the  milk  chocolate,  post  cards, pencils', etc,, are  still the contribution of the sisters.  <T"  ���������^  "-If When everyone is anxious to do his part to win the war, and  many are working under considerable stress, it follows that  the eyes are subject to a good deal of strain.  ^| No one can be 100 per cent efficient and suffer from eyestrain.

Peace does not alter the food demands upon  Canada and the United States, but in fact increases the load and the demand for economy.  Municipalities have now the power to appoint fair price committees, in publishing lists  of commodities in their municipality, and also  for fuel, clothing, boots and shoes, and other  items of common household expenditure.  Feeding milling wheat to livestock or poultry is forbidden by the Canada food board.  The Day  BY HENRY* CHAPPELL.  [The author of this magnificent poem   is  Henry Chap  pell, a railway porter at Bath.  Mr. Chappell is known  to his comrades as tbe "Bath Railway. Poet." It was  first published in August, 1914 ]  In the twelve months ending September,  1918, Canada exported $163,488,362 worth of  animal products and $440,742,440 worth of  agricultural products, a total of $604,230,792,  In addition to her farm products she exported  over $33,000,000 worth of fish. In the first 47  months of the war Canada exported $1,874,-  701,900 worth of foodstuffs. This effort has  helped to maintain the allies and it has helped  Canada maintain her war efforts. The call to  Canada is still for production, and by increased production Canada can easily pay her billion dollar war debt and maintain   prosperity.  There was a time when people were fond of  teaching their children a certain little song  about "Little deeds of kindness, Little words  of love"��������� It must be that those children are  the wen and women of today who are, literally, going about the world doing the deeds of  mercy instead of singing ^bout them. For it is  a fact that every deed of frightfulness today  is matched by thousands of deeds of touching  kindness and mercy. The best verses of that  simple little song are being set to music that  sings itself into the hearts of those that needed the kindness more than anything else in  this world. Because the workers are so sincere, few persons know of their song. ITow-  ever, it happens that two English women, sisters,   have  been  doing a work of which, no  You boasted the Day, and you toasted the Day,  And now the Day.has come.

Twenty-one of Greatest  Battles Mentioned  Roll of Honor  on  Distribution of Seed  Grain From Dominion  Experimental Farms  By instructions of the minister of  agriculture, a free distribution of superior sorts of grain will be made  during the coming winterand spring  to Canadian fanrjerp.  Samples for distribution will consist of spring wheat (about 5 lbs ),  white oats (about 4 lbs.), barley  (about 5 lbs.), and field peas (about  5 lbs.). These will be sent out, free,  by mail, from the Central Experi  mental farm, Ottawa, by the Do  minion Cerealist, who will furnish  the necessary application forms.

When hostilities  ceased oh Nov. 11, 1918, Canada had  sent overseas 418.9S0 soldiers. At  first Canada supplied a division. This  was increased until in 1916 she had  in France an army corps of four di  visions, a cavalry brigade and numerous other servicss, such as line of  communication troops, railway troops  and forestry corps. Sept. 3, 191.8, the  Canadian troops in France numbered  156,250. The cavalry brigade included a strong draft furnished by the  Royal Northwest mounted police        On   Oct. 31,   1918,  the casualties  numbered over 211,000.

Its one really good quality is  that it is the longestkeeper we have,  and late in the season it is not too  bad, but its color and shipping  qualities led to its being planted altogether too largely. The King, a  rather shy bearer, but of unexcelled  flavor as a dessert apple, is credited  to; New Jersey, with an uncertain  yarentage.  Mungo Robert McQuarrie, mayor  of Nelson, died at 12 o'clock last  evening of pneumonia after a short  illness.- He had lived in the west  since 18S9.  Most ot the Best the Result   of   Chance  Seedlings  Practically all of the best known  varieties of apples grown in Ontario  today are the results of chance seedlings. The Ontario rather tart but  unexcelled for apple phucp, is one of  the few devtloped by crossing, and  the origin of which is definitely  known. It was devsloped by the late  Charles Arnold, of Paris, Ont., and  was produced by crossing the Spy  and Wagner. The Peewaukee is an  other variety which owes its origin  to human effort, and is the product  of a cross of the Spy and Oldenberg  made in Wisconsin.  The choicest dessert apples are of  the Snow family, and the Snow itself first appeared in the province of  Quebec, and is supposed to have  been grown from seed brought from  France. Tne Mcintosh, an improvement on the Snow, and doubtless  grown from a chance seed of the  Snow, dropped by birds, was first  found growing at the side of the  bush in Dundas county, and the  original tree stood until a few years  ago. The Shiawassee, another im  j rovement on the Snow, was first  discovered in Michigan, and, like  the Mcintosh, was the result of a  chance seed. The St. Lawrence, a  beautiful early dessert apple, was  first grown in Montreal, origin uncertain.  For some of our most useful apples we are indebted to Russia. The  Yellow Transparent, one of the earliest of eating apples, came from St.  Petersburg, and was brought to  America by the United States department of agriculture in 1S70.  The Duchess, one of the best baking  apples/and of beautiful appearance,  was brought from Russia to England  in 1815,and thence to America. Tbe  Alexander, a splendid, large, well  colored apple, and exceptionally  good for apple sauce.was introduced  into England from Russia in 1817.  Tolman Sweet, not an attractive  looking apple, but one of the bist  all-round ones, originated in Rhode  Island. The Spy, still the most popular apple in the market, made its  first appearance in New York state.

Promptness in answering the telephone is a mark of courtesy shown the  caller. It is also a help to the operator,  for it enables her to complete the call  and to give her attention to others.  Telephone calls should be answered  promptly, for sometimes the calling  person does not wait and ''hangs up."  If this happens the subscriber who . has  been called should not blame the oper-  tor when she asks him to "excuse it,  please."  BRITISH COLUMBIA  Al.
