Tbe army soup originally was sold  at 9 and 10 cents a can,' which was  below the price chain stores were  asking for similar products Then  chain stores cut their prices to three  cans for 25 cents. Commissioner  Day's new price for army soups is  7 cents a can.  Qommitsioner Day also announced  a repision downward of the prices  charged for army bacon, beans,corn,  peas,, condensed milk, corn syrup  and canned tomatoes .All these staples now are being sold at prices  considerably below those fixed by  the fair price committee.  ��������� According to Commissioner Day,  the array fool sales hive totalled  more than ������500,000 in eight days,  and at the present rate the supply  of army food will have been ex  hstested iu two more weeks.  more to herself we will point out  how to preserve without sugar and  show that sugar will be cheaper long  before the unsugared preserves are  needed for use.  When plums, prunes and peaches  are over the prices of pears and apples will likely take a jump upwards. ,  Prices are being kept unsteady as  the result of so many consignments.

CALGARY FRUIT  MARKET DURING  THE PAST WEEK  This week h;-s been   one  of  con  tradictory rnmors about   sugar supply.  Grocers have   wisely restricted  their customers to   limited   quanti-  *���������-������,     ties. Mr   VVinslow, who has been in  '"Ottawa for two weeks, has managed  to secure a generous share  of   what  sugar was in  sight.   We   have   the  following wire from him today:  "We secured shipment into prairies eight million pounds of sugar  from east and Vancouver in nine  days ending Friday. Current ship~  meuts will be light on account of  shortage of raws. Have not given up  efforts to secure export sugar at reasonable price, but thissugar.could not  reach prairie before September 10 at  earliest."  Tbis equals 266 cars.  The Stampede has brought in  crowds of visitors, and they have all  but cleaned up the remaning supply of sugar on hand. Calgary managed to secure two carloads yesterday and one today of granulated sugar; four more should arrive before  end of this week. Edmonton has got  six cars in nine days, so   the   hand  Preservdtion of Fruits  and Vegetables for  Use at Home  In canned goods   there   are   two  kinds' of spoilage. The first is  called  ''Hat sour," which includes all forms  of   bacterial   growth   that  develop  within the food!   The second  type  of spoilage to guard against is mould,  aplant growth that isdistinctiy different from   the   bacterial   grovpth.  Moulded   foods   are   seldom   more  than surface affected, because air  is  necessary   for its  growth,    but'  the  "flat sour" spoilage means that   the  entire can must be discarded.    Bulletin No. 93 of   the Dominion   Experimental Farms, "Preservation   of  Fruits   and   V egetab 1 es   for 'Horne  Uae," which may be had   on   application to  tbe   publications branch,  department of  agriculture,   Ottawa,  gives fuli information   on  the   vaii  ous methods   of   canning, including  old and valuable recipes  as   well as  new ones which have been valuable.  Canning has become   the most pop-  U ar   means   of     preserving    large  quantities of fruits   and   vegetables,  i n 1 since these are plentiful   during  tie   summer   months and   at othei  tunes   difficult   to   obtain,    it     is  important to preserve quantities during   the  growtng   season for use iu  winter.    Moreover,   the  use   of   an  abundant supply of fruit and   vegetables is essential to   health    at   ali  seasons of the year.  The Spokane & British Columbia  railway wiil discontinue to, operate  its. line between Republic and Dan  ville. The train crew in this city has  received instructions to take alt ore  cars and other equidment to Republic and to make the last run over the  road a week from today. It is supposed that the. interstate, commerce  commission has forced the company  to take this action. As the S, & B.  C. serves a number of small sawmills along its line that can not be  reached by the Great Northern, an  effort will probably be made to ob  tain permission to operate the road  until the business at these mills is  cleaned up. The' road has been  operated about eighteen years.

THE DOMINION  FRUIT GROWERS  What has become of the  old-time  assembling   of   tbe Dominion Fruit  Growers  and   Shippers at  Ottawa?  asks the Fruit Markets Bulletin.   We  have slight recollections that during  the war these gatherings were abandoned aud the care of the fruit  in  terests   delegated   to   an  executive  committee with   Mr. Hodgetts, nor  ticulturist, Ontario, as secretary.    It  seems as if it was   about  time   that  Dominion Fruit Growers  took   thej  management   of   their   destiny   in {  their own hands again.   We know of j  some live problems lhat   need   solv- j  ing, but do not know   how    to   ap*;  proach   this   executive   committee. :  Canadian fruit interests can   not be!  Sergt.

He will be  located in the building on Bridge  street formerly occupied by S. G.  Kirk, and intends to deal in farm  and timber lands, poles, posts and  ties. He will keep a collection in his  office of the products of. the orchaid  and farm, as well as ore samples  from all I he mines in the district,  in order that strangers may gain a  comprehensive idea of our resources.

C.  OFFrCE:    COLUMBIA AVENUE AND LAKE STREET.  FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 5, 1919  Advertising, when properly, directed, is no  doubt a means of creating additional business  for the advertiser. How the advertiser spends  his appropriation���������from the standpoint of securing results���������is his own concern. The medium by which he reachas the public, however,  concerns the public, and the people are awakening to the fact. Appearance counts. For this  reason, and no other, all modern daily and  weekly newspapers' notwithstanding that the  greater proportion of their revenue comes from  advertising, have excluded display advertising  from their front pages. When a private industry, so dependent on its advertisers, can take  a stand on behalf of appearances,,how much  more important is it that our public streets,  the front pages of our city, should be protected. The more public a place, the more eagerly  is it seized upon for the erection of a billboard,  and this regardless of the fact that it constitutes a deteriorating influence upon surrounding property, in many cases is a hiding place  for a "dump" an d often creates a fire menace  of no mean proportion. Cities are spending  enormous sums in the construction of good  roads and sidewalks; merchants and residents,  largely for the sake of appearances, improve  their property fronting on same, that the eye  of the travelling public may not be offended.  Yet billboards and signs are permitted without control as to location. It is high time  municipal authorities recognized their duty  towards public amenities, and regulated the  erection of signs and billboards.  Speaking of souvenirs, did anyone get anything better >than the eighteen thousand  "douCThboys"-who brought back brides���������from  France, England, Scotland, Ireland j Those  young women, as the American Legion Weekly says, are as courageous as their husbands,  for they have left home and people and native  land, to dwell in a coantry "where every face  but one is the face of a stranger, and every  custom is new; but that spirit of adventure  has always been the salt in our blood, and it  will continue to give us, as it has given us in  the pust, men and women who do not fear  To shake the iron hand of Fate,  We have never had much faith in the many  varieties of special sales as factors in reducing  the cost of living. As a general thing, the alleged reduction in prices is made on knick-  nacks, odds and ends, shopworn articles, and  o-oods that have oeased to be in fashion, while  on all staple articles and the necessaries of  life the old prices are maintained. At these  sales people often buy goods that they do not  really need because they imagine they are get-  tin*-- bargains, and thus increase, ralher than  reduce, the cost of living. A useless article  is dear at any price.  The following incident, according to an  American exchange, is supposed to have taken  place somewhere in the United States. It  might have occurred just as easily anywhere  in Canada if our government were disposed  to take more stringent measures against  profiteering: "An ordinary looking man  dropped into a shoe store, and asked thc pro- ^  prictor  to show  him some of the latest pat-!  terns in ..footwear. The proprietor smilingly  obliged. The ordinary looking fellow spotted  a pair that suited him and asked the price.  'Fourteen dollars,' chirped the proprietor.  'Fourten dollars!' echoed the ordinary looking  chap. 'Isn't that a bit high?' 'Oh! no,' the proprietor assured him, 'Tomorrow you'll have  to pay $16 for that same pair of shoes. Everything is going up.' 'Very well,' said the ordinary looking man, 'I'll take them,' saying  which he hastened to display a government  badge to the now much agitated proprietor.  Then he asked the boss to produce the invoice  for tnat pair of shoes. After a lot of stalling  and skirmishing the invoice was finallv un-  earthed. It showed that the shoe dealer had  paid $4 for that pair of shoes. Some profiteering, sure enough." ,  f?  When dogs fight a bear, says the San Poil  Eagle, one dog bites the bear in the back  while it is facing the other dog. Then the bear  turns around to fight the dog that bit it, and  that gives the o.ther doS a chance to bite the  bear in the back. In this fight aginst the high  cost of living the government is the bear and  the profiteers are the dogs. Why does not the  government back itself up against the wall  and force all the dogs to the', front? Then say  to those avaricious hounds, "You may sell at  such and such prices, and if you sell at higher  prices we'll cull' your damned heads into jail."  Such has been done in other countries and it  can be done in America.  The waistcoat is at present receiviugagieat  deal of abuse as a useless adjunct of men's  apparel. These traducers are short-sighted.  A man without a wuistcoat in January belongs either to the hobo clan or to sora.i  lunatic asylum.  Although an ancient contract gives Denmark the right to redeem the Orkney islands  from Great Britain by paying the dowry of a  Danish princess and the interest that has accrued- on it, the Danes are not likely to claim  the right. They transferred the islands to  Scotland in 1468 as a pledge for sixty thousand flo.iins, the dowry of the princess of Denmark who married King James III, and the  deed of transfer, which still exists, particularly states that they may redeem them.'' But the  interest on sixty thousand florins for four hundred and fifty years would amount to perhaps  a trillion pounds slerling.  The Dominion parliament opened last Monday. The program for the session, it is understood, will include a number of bills for  continuing in force legislation passed under  war measures act.  General Sir Arthur Currie, ��������� replying to an  address of welcome at Sherbrooke, said that  50 percent of the male population of London  had been found unfit for military service,  which went to prove that conditions are  healthier in Canada, and that farm life helps  the life of the nation.  ^  A Practical Suggestion  Many of our patrons have found it hoth convenient and  'time saving to have an extra pair of glasses on band in  case they break the ones they- aae wearing.

Miss Bennett is a fine actress,  and she surely\knows how to use a tele-  phone,'but,in this case she had her face  turned away from the transmitter. Perhaps she was posing, but it might have,  suggested to some one that her method  was the proper one when telephoning.  When you telephone, talk directly into  the instrument, with your lips an inch or  so from the transmitter. Then you will  have to talk in an ordinary tone, and the  person at the other end will be able to  hear you distinctly.
