The  Industrial bureau was crowded with  .men and women to hear the minister speak on the new loan.  Five hundred million dollars is  theatnour^-equired to be raised by  the Canadian government to carry  on Canada's part in the prosecution  of the war. The minimum amount  the minister asks for is $300,000,000  The larger amount will be raised if  possible.  Grimes Golden, have not reached tlie  popular stage, while admitted to be  one of the best.  We are anxious to place shippers  of car lots in communication with  buyers if they will send a list of the  conteuts of car and state the grade  and quality.

POTATOES SCARCE IN     P  EASTERN PROVINCES \Ji  McINTOSH RED  AND RED APPLES  . At a well attended meeting in the  couit house this week an organization to conduct the local drive in  the new Victory loan campaign was  perfected. Mayor Acres was appointed chairman'of campaign, and  .other oflicers and a publicity and  other committees were selected Active canvassing for subscriptions  will be commenced shortly.  APPLES  We have stated that the Mcintosh  Reds have been arriving'a" little on  the green side; we notice that color is  not as good as last year,says the Markets Bulletin. Growers must not allow these remarks to mislead them as  to time for picking Macks. The apples  must be picked now or serious Ijss  will follow through falling. This va  riety can not be leift on the tree for  color. Whai we wanted to impress is  that every year the Mackintosh is  rushed on the market greatly to the  detriment of other fall varieties.  They may be piched and packed,  but'unfcil now the bulk of them could  remain in the valley if storage is suf  ficient for them.- The Mack is popular  at any time, but from November to  Christinas is his best selling season.  We have reports from Yakima and  elsewhere that worms, drought and  lack of color has greatly reduced the  ettra fancy ol No. 1 grade. They'  wisely pack their apples in the g:ade  they come up to, therefore they will  have fewer extra fancy apples this  vear.  The call from Knox Presbyterian  church in this city to Rev, Hiilis  Wright, of Cranbrook, was sustained  at a meeting of the Kootenay Presbytery in St. Paul's church, Nelson,  Wed nesday^ night.

FRIDAY, OCTOBER 11, 1918  THRIFT PARAGRAPHS  A SQUARE .DEAL  Are you giving your country a square deal?  Canada's effort in this war has roused the admiration of tho entire world. Thousands of  Canada's sons have made the supreme sacrifice.    What has been your part?  Has it just been that of making money out  of war prosperity���������and then squandering it?  Yes or No? You must make the answer to  your own conscience. ���������*,.���������'  If the answer is "Yes," you are not giving  Canada a square deal. You are, in truth,  oivino; her the lowest kind of a deal. Sacrifice  can not be equal; but honor and conscience  demand that everyone make some measure of  sacrifice. The lightest that can be asked is  the giving up of waste and extravagance���������  aye, even harmless tastes, in order to save.  Canadians must Save in order to Lend. Canadians must Lend if Canada is to win and to  thrive in the future. Give Canada a square  deal. Sacrifice to Save; Si've to Lend.  ARE YOU ON YOUR JOB?  You shouldn't take chances on after-war  business, by acting like the foolish virgins or  the prodigal spender in this crisis.  Thb great question of saving our surplus  funds is before us all. It hammers itself into  our very souls. Unless we save our money we  are not worthy of our country's great efforts  in this war. His hat must sit mighty lightly  on his head, who has no clear vision of his  duty at this time, when our boys are paying-  red blood for our glorious liberties.  Be a first-rate patriot. Do the right thing  now.    Be a saver at every turn.  Savings made now have double value over  a delayed decision in the matter.  Are you on your job like the Doys overseas?  Every time you buy a thing you do not need  you interfere vvith Canada's war work. Every,  dollar you spend on things not strictly necessary is a dollar not merely wasted but used to  employ labor on things that have nothing to  do with our efforts to win .the, war for freedom.  Too much of the time of Canadian workmen  is being purchased by us to make things that;  are for show and pleasure. Too great a quantity of material that our soldiers could effectively use against the foe, goes into the maky  ing of superfluous things for us, whom they  are so valiantly defending.  It is for every one of us to .say how much  patriotic endeavor, how much loyal sacrifice  we will make by saving our money, by "doing  without," so that each day will see a surplus  to/add to our own and the nation's strength.  The measure of your love of freedom is your  willingness to 'deny yourself so that the  strength of the nation for war effort will be  increased.  Parsimony to promote your country's welfare is'now a virtue; indeed, it is expected  of  y������u*  In  Engiand   they say  stabs a soldier in the back."

Annual income ������20,  annual expenditure ������19.19.6���������result, happiness.  Annual income ������20, annual expenditure ������20.0.6������������������  result, misery. The blossom is blighted, the leaf is  withered, the God of Day goes down upon the  dreary scene, and���������and in short, you are forever  floored.    As I am."  The saving of a part of one's income was always a  good policy.  Prudent men and women have always maintained a  margin of saving.  But to-day we must go farther in our efforts to save  than ever before.  To-day it is a matter of the gravest importance that  each Canadian seek ways and means to economize  by cutting down expenditures for unnecessary things,  saving the money he spends on things he could do  without, so that when the Nation needs to borrow  money he will be in a position'to do his full duty.  There is war-shortening work waiting for every dollar  that can be saved.  IF Charles Dickens were writing to Canadians to-day he would probably give us  advice to this effect.  "My other piece of advice, Canadians, you know.  No matter what percentage of your annual income  you have previously saved, your efforts to-day  should be to save more. The 'advantage of so.  doing is threefold- By the practice of economy  ��������� you conserve the material and labor which must  be devoted to the grim task before us; you cnltivate  the priceless habit of thrift; you gather more' and  more money to lend to the Nation for the prosecution of the war to a quick and certain Victory."  Published under the authority of the  Minister of Finance of Canada  22  ^EEasassasBsa  TS  Nothing is more difficult to understand over a telephone wire than a  number containing three or four digits.  "5" sounds like "9" and "2" is often  mistaken for "3"; transposing numerals is a frequent error.  S That's wby the telephone operator  must have your numbers slowly, one  digit at a time. One must be sure and  you alone can nelp. It's that kind of  help that makes for satisfactory telephone service.  TELEPHONE COMPANY, Ltd  PROVINCIAL TAX SALE  ( Continued from Page 2.)  This is a gross injustice to the farmers of this cemmunity. The sale in the  first place should never have b'eeu  held at this time. It is the hardest  time in the history of the British Columbia farmer to make his living and  raise money to pay his taxes. But the  government must have the money  even if it has to kill the goose that  lays the golden egg in order to-get it.  Why does the government need the  money1? Because of its "extravagance.  There was to he a curtailment of expenditure in order to equalize the  revenue and expendituse of the provincial administration, but the late  administration was only a kindergarten iu the art of spending the public  money when compared with the present aggregation of spendthrifts.  The Liberals were horrified because  Bowser had loaned the Pacific Great  Eastern. 36,000,000,000 out of the  provincial treasury in order to complete their undertaking. But when  the Liberals got into power they appointed a commission to investigate  the affairs of the com wany and when  they discovered that their own friends  were involved and stood to profit  they cancelled that great debt on  payment by the company of one million dollars instead of six. If they  needed the money so badly, why go  after the farmer and sell him out of  house and home for a paltry tax account and give millions to a bunch of  grafters who were -already gorged  with the people's money.  They were going to red uee expen  ditures by cutting out special officers  and commissions, removing all the  unncessary commissions. Had they reduced the staffs as they promised to  do and cut off all the'useless and expensive commissions, there would have  been no heed to take such drastic  measures with the farmer. There  would have been no need jor a surtax  that increased the farmer's burdens  b-yond his ability to carry them, to be  followed by confiscation, as the tax  sale is in reality.   .  Patronage, the bane of British Columbia public life, was to have bpeu  abolished, destroyed root and branch.  But it has flonrished under the pres������  ent administration like a green  bay tree and the farmer is to  be destroyed instead. They are going after him, bag and baggage, lock,  stock and barrel, horns, hoof and  tail, and it was the intention of the  government that they should not  know a thing about it uutil they  were scotched.  Many of Hon. Dr King's friends  say that surely the genial doctor  would not lend himself to such a gross  injustice, and he may have fought  against it. But- he is travelling in a  vicious and his better judgment may  have been overcome by his unscrupulous colleagues, or an unholv* ambition  may have turned his head. Whatever  has been the reason, ho certainly has  oorisented to the handing out of a  very raw deal to his constituents.  It is bad enough to rob a man of  property, but why not do it in a gentlemanly way.���������Cranbrook Herald.  GIRLS!
