 Kettle Valley Orchardist  ���������^y-y^  1������TH YEAR���������No   2  GRAND FORKS   B. C, FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 8, 1918  Tf  $1.00 PER YEAR  Graud Forks' Quota Has  Bdcn Oversubscribed by  About $38,000 ~ May  Reach $150,000  The Victory loan drive in this city  lias already broken the record made  in the 1917 Victory loan drive. The  official figures last night were 8112,-  550. This amount exceeds Grand  Forks' quota by nearly 838,000. The  canvassers have hopes of increasing  the total to $150,000 before the drive  ends on the 16th. Cascade, Billings  and Fife citizens have subscribed  $8000 of the above amount.  News of the City  Pte. Ernest Wiles, who went over-  peas from this city.returned to Grand  Forks on Tuesday night. He has  spent three years at the front; was  wounded, and since last April he  has been in an English hospital.  He still carries some German iron  in his body.  No one has greater ..cause ...to .re  joice at the termination of the Great  War than Murray Janes. He has  been in the front line trenches since  the scrap started, and his chances of  getting back to Grand Forks alive  are now excellent.  Mildred We.therell, the youog  daughter of Mr. and Mrs. VV. P.  Wetherell, died in Trail of influenza  last Sunday. It was reported a few  days ago that Mrs. Wetheral was  very low with the same disease.  Dr. Truax returned the first of  the from Rosslaud, where he assist  ed the local doctors for a few days  in handling the influenza  epidemic  Michael Riley, and old resident  of the Fourth of July district, died  at the Graud Fork's hospital on Sat  urday night of influenza after a  short illness. The remains were  buried in Evergreen' cemetery on  Monday.  A telegram was received in this  city on Monday from Anyox saying  that Garibaldi Bruno had died, at  that place of influenza.  Rev. Hillis Wright, the new minister of Knox Presbyterian church,  is expected to arrive in the city  from Cranbrook in a few days.  Oscar Lachmund, late manager of  the Canada Copper company, has  opened a mining office in the Paulsen building, Spokane.  The chrome miue at Laurier is  shipping ten carloads of ore to  Niagara, N. Y.  Two   lead   furnaces  at Trail are  cold on account of tbe influenza.  G. B. Garrett, local CP.R,   agent,  is very low with influenza.  There is no material change iu the  influenza situation in this city. The  disease continues to be of a very mild  e-haracter.  I walked out of Mr. Brown's office  greatly disappointed. I had entered it with the high expectation  of selling him a Victory Bond running into four -or five figures.  But my most plausible arguments  had failed to induce him to buy.  The fact that I considered Mr.  Brown's excuses and objections as  wholly specious added to the chagrin  al my failure.  Mr. Brown's was my first assignment, and the fact of my losing  what I had considered a certain  sale unnerved me for the day. I  went home, greatly dejected, and  made no further attempt to s-^ll  Victory  Boi.d.** that day.  The next morning, on my way  down town to my place of business,  I had occasion to pass Mr. Brown's  office. Mr.'Brown was at the door,  and called me inside.  "Yesterday," he began, "I treated  your solicitation rather brusquely.  Since that time I have seen a new  light on the subject, and you can  take my order for a $5000 bond."  In return  for my  expression   of  surprise, Mr. Brown related the foi  lowing story.  . '-On his way from school la.-t  night, my young son was set upon  by a vicious dog. Rooks in the road  enabled the boy to keep the brute  at bay for a short time, but these  soon gave out, and he was then  bitten and lacerated by the ferocious  enemy. Fortunately neighbors wit  nessed the savage attack, and the  boy was rescued aud brought to  his home, tie has since been constantly under tbe care of our family  physician, aud he ia still in a pre  carious condition.  '���������The sad incident set me to  thinking, and my mind reverted to  the Victory loau. I. now saw the  urgent need of the government's  treasury being well supplied with  funds. What would happen if its  money, like the lad's rocks, should  run short just when victory was in  sight'? The question marshalled a  multitude of direful consequences  before my mind's, eye. I saw the  Canadian troops at the gate of vie  tory. Their ammunition suddenly  gave out, and they were pounced  upon by the vicious Huns���������beaten  back, slaughtered aud taken prisoners. I saw heroes who have fought  for liberty in tbe front lines for over  four years, hungry and shivering  with cold in the damp trenches. J  saw a procession of those who have  fallen for justice on the field of  honor, sadly reproaching those who  are living in comfort at home for  the r niggardliness; and lastly, I  saw the return of a dejected, all  but defeated army, every soldier  pointing the finger of scorn at the  people for failing to keep faith with  them.  "The vision passed, but my views  on lending to the government had  undergone a radical change. * Although the amount I have subscribed will pinch me for some  time, I do not consider that I have  contributed one-tenth as much toward winning a final victory as the  man at the front."  STRIBUTIDN OF  A DIFFICULT  Bomb the Bocbe with Bonds.  In a statement on the   sugar dis  tribution   difficulty,   the   chairman  of the Canada food board says:  "Since last. May, wheD the use of  sugar in Canada was rigidly cut  down, manufacturers,candy makers,  public eating places and large users  have played the game fairly, and  have abided,by the rulings, of. the  Canada food board.  "Approximately 300,000 tons of  sugar will be required in Canada for  . 191S. Only 12,000 tons ot this: will  be used in the confectionery indus  try. If the food board issued an  order absolutely closing down the  factories, we should disorganize the  industry* and throw hundreds uf  people out of work.  "If the people in the homes-would  not put the 'second spoonful', of sugar in their tea and coffee it would  save 50,000 tons "a year. This  amount is more than four times the  sugar allotment to:the confectionery  manufacturers. It could be done  with a little good will.  "Notwithstanding the order issued  on September 15th, there is reason-  to beiTeve that a large number of  people hoard. :sugar ;in : the homesV  It is only a little, possibly,-.-.in,, some  c-iscs, but when -multiplied by the  number of homes in Canada,,it is a  huge   quantity   in   the   aggregate.  There is possibly also a good deal of  waste which, if checked by everyone, would make the situation easier.  "It is for the consumer,to'get in  behind' the food board now as the  manufacturers have done. There  will then be an ample supply of  sugar for all."  Fruit Storage     '  M. L. Dean, of the division of  horticulture, Olympia, Wash,, state  department of agriculture, is calling  the attention of fruitmen, and especially apple growers, to the fact that  fruit should be put into storage as  soon as possible after it has been  picked.  The extreme warm weather of the  autumu months has had a tendency  to hasten the ripening of apples,  and this makes immediate storage  all the more important to the grow  er who would realize top prices on  bis crop.  Since storage space is scarce in all  parts of the country, the arrangement for such space as will be needed is all the more importayt. Storage is the one "safety first" measure  against bad weather and congested  shipping conditions.  PEACE REJOICING  Public Speaking, Proces-  sionSjFirecrackers, Bonfires and Other Forms  of Hilarity  During   September   the  Granby  company produced  688,539 pounds  of copper at Grand Forks,   and   2,  682,996 pounds at Anyox.  -,..-.Ih these  days of   infiuenz-i   epi  demies, far too many- people congregate at the Kettle Valley station   at  train time.   The train crew   is  able  to handle trains.  In common with a large number of  cities in Canada and the United  States, Grand Forks last night celebrated a premature ending of the  world war. A hoax report sent out  yesterday morning that the German  delegation had signed the armistice  was the cause of this mistake.  Locally the supposed end of the  struggle was celebrated with a great  deal of zest. Brief public speeches  were made at the First street bandstand by Mayor Acres and Rev Gordon Tanner, the band discoursed  harmonious music, firecrackers crackled, bonfires blazed, automoble horns  made all the noise they could, and  the citizens marched in processions  waving Hags. It is too bad it was not  the real end of the war.

It will prove  to the world that Canadians  have faith in their own future.  Canada is asking the loan  of a lot of money,but the Germans would, ask a great deal  more in indemnities. Show  what system you prefer.  -Fortune favors the man or  the nation that looks to the  future. That is what Canada  is doing when she asks her  citizens to subscribe to Victory bonds. They will li el p  her and they will help you.  When you buy a Victory  bjnd you are laying by something that may be the foundation of future wealth. The  millionaires all say, that the  rirst hundred dollars is the  'hardest to get. Make the beginning with a Victory   bond.  Victory^bond, good invest;  ihe nt though ic is, is a great  deal more than that. It is the  documentary pi oof that its  possessor has an active and  living impulse to aid Canada  in carrying the burdens that  have been imposed on her by  the war, and the further, burdens that will ensue in the  great constructive work that  will follow peace.  In times like these the  nations  at war rightly demand  sacrifices of all citizens.    Particularly is this true   of Canada,  which has  enjoyed  un-  exempted prosperity as a result of the war.   Many  thousands  of her  sons   have not  hesitated to make the supreme  sacrifice, but many  thousands  more are   doing better in  a  tiuancial way than  they  ever  did before.   To the latter  the  easiest  wav   to   Sacrifice   is  open.   All   that  is  asked of  them is that they Sacrifice to  Save���������that they   give  up   a  little in  a cause for   which  others  have ^sacrificed   their  lives.   By sacrificing to save,  and saving  to Lend they can  make  the burdens of Canada  lighter. It is a small demand.  Id is the easiest kind, yet very  paying    patriotism.   Sacrifice  lo Save; Save to Lend.  In the congressional elections in the States last Tuesday the Republicans secured  a small majority in the house  of representatives.  Can you feel the pinch?

Your  hardest  Bonds.  own   scorn   may  to   endure���������Buy  he   the  Victory  jBg^ggaMaamBSammBBBmaamKi  You are a farmer.  Canada is a farming country.  Canada grows more food than the  people of Canada need.  To prosper she must sell that surplus food.  Great Britain is our best customer  for grain, pork, beef, cheese and other  farm products.  Every practical man must see how  important it is to hold the British trade.  Canada wants not only the profit on  this trade, she wishes to create a goodwill in Britain towards Canadian products and thus assure our export business for the future.  At the moment Great Britain asks  for credit, asks Canada to sell her the  products of the farm, "ort time." To  hold her trade, it is necessary to give  this credit.  This takes capital���������immense capital.  For Britain's purchases from Canada  are huge, and these purchases must be  paid for in cash.  In these times, it is not easy even  for a nation as wealthy as Canada to  procure money. Certainly, no other  country can lend us money. The only  way now open for Canada to secure  money is to borrow from the people of  Canada.  This is the reason for selling Victory  Bonds.  Can anyone deny the sound business  sense of this plan of protecting our  valuable market?  From the standpoint of the man  who lends, what better security could  he get for his money? Where else  could he get a five and a half per cent,  return on such security? Where would  he find an. investment to pay interest.  so regularly and with so little trouble  to the lender? Certainly Canadians  have an opportunity to benefit very  directly from this borrowing plan.  And the money Canada borrows is  spent entirely in Canada-���������a very large  part of it for the very crops the farmer  has to sell.  Therefore, if the Victory Loan is a  success, business in Canada must be  good, the nation must prosper and so  be able to carry , on a vigorous war  effort in France and Flanders.  As. a practical man you must  approve cf the Victory Loan plan.  Then help it along. Put your own  money into Victory Bonds; urge your  friends to buy; work hard among  your loyal neighbors to make the  . Victory Loan 1918 an overwhelming  success.  ���������o'-'I  ������������������allyoxi can payjfor in cash and alt  yoti can carry on instalments.

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.

Owing to the 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,  Last Year's Canadian  Victory Loan  The following amounts were  sub  scribed   by   the   various   Canadian  provinces  to   the   Victory   loan in  1917:  Alberta���������Population,496,000; sub  scription .$16,515,150; per capita  833.29.

Partnership pre-emptions abolished,  but parties of not more than four may  arrange for adjacent pre-emptions, with  joint residence, but each making necessary improvements on respective claims.  Pre-emptors must occupy claims for  Ave years and make improvements to  value of $10 per acre, including clearing  and cultivation of at least 5 acres, before receiving Crown Grant.  Where pre-emptor in occupation not  less than 3 years, and has made proportionate improvements, he may, because  of ill-health or other cause, be granted  Intermediate certificate of improvement  and transfer his claim.  Records without permanent residence  may be issued provided applicant makes  improvements to extent of $300 per annum and records same each year. Failure to make improvements or record  same will operate as forfeiture. Title  cannot be obtained on these claims in  less than 5 years, with improvements of  $10 per acre, including 5 acres cleared  and cultivated, and residence of at  least 2 years.  Pre-emptor holding Crown Grant may  record another pre-emption, if he requires land in conjunction with his  farm, without actual occupation, provided statutory improvements made and  residence maintained on Crown granted  land.  TJnsurveyed areas, not exceeding 20  acres, may be leased as homesites;  title to be obtained after fulfilling residential and improvement conditions.  For grazing and  industrial purposes,  areas exceeding 640 acres may be leased  by one person or company.  PRE-EMPTORS* FREE GRANTS ACT.  The scope of this Act is enlarged to  Include all persons joining and serving  with His Majesty's Forces. The time  within which the heirs or devisees of a  deceased pre-emptor may apply for  title under this Act is extended from  one year from the death of such person,  as formerly, until one year after the  conclusion of the present war. This  privilege is also made retroactive.  TOWNSITE PROPERT,ir ALLOTMENT  ACT.  Provision Is made for the grant to  persons holding uncompleted Agreements to Purchase from the Crown of  such proportion of the land, If divisible,  as the payments already made will  cover in proportion to the sale price of  the whole parcel. Two or more persons  holding such Agreements may group  their interests and apply for a proportionate allotment jointly. If it is not  considered advisable to divide the land  covered by an application for a proportionate allotment, an allotment of land  of equal value selected from available  Crown lands in the locality may be  made. These allotments are conditional,  upon payment of all taxes due the  Crown or to any municipality. The.  rights of persons to whom the purchaser from the Crown has agreed to  sell are also protected. The decision of  the Minister of Lands in respect to the  adjustment of a proportionate allotment  Is final. The time for making application for these allotments Is limited to,  the 1st day of May, 1919. Any applica-.  tion made after this date will not be  considered.
