(Di.UU   JT-L.-LV   iiJ-au  Arrival of an Ample Supply of Su^ar Is Expected  to Stimulate Business  in Prairie Cities  Dull trade has featured tha week,  due entirely to sugar shortage. Today five cars of sugar will arrive  from Vaneouver and on Monday  five cars will reach Edmonton,  which completes the western twenty  cars ordered ^y the board of commerce. The eastern cars are due any  day, and with their arrival business  will improve.  We received the first two carloads  of the Ontario Blue Concorn grapes  packed in 6-quart baskets.   A shipment  of   fancy Hungarian   prunes  from Washington packed in 4-basket  crates arrived; they weighed 28 lor,  gross to the crate. Some of the lines  to be seen on the Calgary market at  . present are British Columbia ground  or sand   cherries, email   preserving  t -matoes of the yellow pear and red  cherry variety, Persian Honey Dew,  also Casaba melons from California,  Honey Dew melons and cantaloupes  from   British   Columbia;    Spanish  onions, first Imported since   prewar  times, selling for 15c each. A small  amount   of   celery  grown   by local  gardeners  is  now coming  on   this  market; it is sold at the same   price  as British Columbia celery. Damson  plums are in heavy demand. Plums  and prunes are  arriving here from  Fraser valley points too green;  local  dealers say when they arrive in any  other   way   they   usually   develop  plum rot.  A happy medium should  be tried.  A few crates of  late   raspberries from Salmon Arm are reaching the city; also Haney second crop  of strawberries.  Five sixths   of   the  green corn being sold here this season is received from various   points  in   southern Alberta; it seems to  be  preferred to  the  British   Columbia  article this year.  The first straight carload of California sweet potatoes is expected here  Monday. We would like to hear the  resuit of experiments in growing  sweet potatoes this year in Kere-  meos.  Some of the British Columbia  cantaloupes can not be excelled for  flavor. Hoo Hoo and Rockyford are  the right varieties. Some other kinds  from there have no flavor at all and  should not be shipped; they hurt the  sale of the good ones.  Egg plant is a slow seller in Calgary; only five to ten boxes are sold  each week.  Green  peppers   are selling, very  slowly. There is a good demand for  small pickling   cucumbers or  gher  kins.  Some very coarse tomatoes have  been arriving from British Columbia; green, medium and iipe stock toe  in the same basket. Why do growers continue shipping unshapely  and ungraded stuff? Tomatoes are  stiffening in price when offered in  nicely filled baskets,properly packed  and graded.  honor of supplying six crates of his  everbearing strawberries to H.R H.  the Prince of Wales and party, due  at the Palliser hotel Sunday. ,  The cheap crabapples offered last  week wholesale by a firm handling  the entire output of a large British  Columbia orchard, did not reflect  on the retail prices.

Mc-  Kim's Thirty-AcreFarm  Intends to Establish a  Model Dairy  FINANCE   COMMITTEE  HAS    CONFERENCE  WITH MEMBER  The finance committee of the city  council met J. E. Thompson, M.L A.,  Friday morning, soliciting support  to the request of the city council  that powers be granted Grand Forks  to make a reissue of some $20,000  covering debentures maturing dur  ing 1919-20.  Mr. Toornpson felt that tbe'finan-  cial standing of the city was good  despite, its temporary .. difficulties,  and assured the committee of his  support iu the matter.  The city's total debenture debt at  the end of 19.18 was $166,800, of  which S113,0'g6*' matures this and  next year, leaving an indebtedness of  a little more than $50,000 debenture  liability, against total' assets at the  end of 1918 amounting to $262,  224 21, the city having no temporary or floating indebtedness.  Negotiations have been completed  whereby A R. Mudiej of the River  side Nurseries, will acquire the Mo-  Rim ranch of thirty acres, two miles  east of the city. Mr. Mudip, who is  a returned' soldier and an experienced farmer, will engage in dairy  ing in an up to-date manner.  R. P. MacM-urray, also a returned  soldier, has purchased the ten acre  orchard tract belonging to Mrs. M.  A. Burr, adjoining the McKim  ranch, and will make his home in  the valley. ,  The negotiations for the purchase  of these properties were arranged by  S. T. Hull.  Minister of  Lands Here  Next Friday  ���������~~���������?���������*  J.E.Thompson, M.P.P., yester  day received, a telegram from Vic  toria assuriug him that Hon. T. D.

The complaint   that   information as to the number  of  cars  on   order, the probable date   of  delivering same, has been withheld, is  well founded, and should not   exist.  Fruit men have their money tied up  in the   business  and as it is closely  allied with the sugar  supply   available they are entitled to this   information, and steps should  be  taken  to have it furnished;   withholding it  only leads to circulation  of  contradictory   reports  and  rumors of ulterior motives which there is surely  no reason for. Withholding information can   not do the company  any  good, and does not suit hit  imes of  public unrest.  Returned Soldier Who  Made Money Years Ago  in Real Estate Plans to  Make Restitution  Committee  For the New  Victory Loan  The following out of the ordinary  occurrence is reported in the New  Westminster Columbian:  Having bought a block of land for  S800 and having then subdivided it  into six lots und sold each of.the lots  for about $700, a New Westminster  man has come to the conclusion after  many years that this aransaction, although perfectly legal and also quite  common, is escentially an unjnst one.  Planning to make restitution, to some  extent, he began by leaving two  packages of $200 each on the doorsteps of two of the purchasers, and  thus created a mystery which is now  solved by his explanation.

C.  OFFICE:    COLUMBIA AVENUE AND LAKK STREET.  FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 19, 101.9  Great is   water.    'Babylon waxed great because the waters of  the  Euphrates was  distributed  over  its  te.iritory  and    agriculture  flourished; Egypt owed its preeminence to the  -annual overflow of the Nile and   the  patient  distribution of water by crude  methods.    In  latter days the great dam at Assouan   fulfills  the  task performed  for  centuries by the patient fellaheen and his water wheel. But these  famous achievements  are dwarfed by the enterprise now afoot to place water  on   two   to  three million acres in the Columbia river  basin.    This' vast   area,   rich   in   all   the soil  qualties necessary to the highest type'.'of agriculture, surrounded on all sides by flourishing  farms  and   fruit  districts  and   traversed   by  transcontinental  railways,  only  requires the  application of water to  make  it  a  veritable  iiarden.   Wat^r is  available, and   state  and  federal engineers declare the water  can    be  brought to the land.   Preliminary surveys are  -now  almost completed.    When   it  is  stated  that the average productiveness  of irrigated  areas  in   other parts  of Washington   where  conditious   of soil   are  similar,   is more than  JjilUO per acre annually, according  to govern-,  incut statistics,   the  magnitude of the results  iu prospect can be grasped.  are today asking government aid for a modern  and adequate irrigation system for the Kettle  valley." '���������������������������  ��������� -  /f:  Such a system isabsolutely essential here  if the local ranchers are to compete in the  markets of the world, with'the modean methods of production practiced south of the line.  If the local agriculturists and.hortiturists are  not to seek a foreign market, they might as  well quit business now, because much of the  fruit of their toil would go to waste.  The energetic efforts being made south of  the international boundary line to bring the  semi-arid lands under irrigation should be  emulated in this country. It is the only way  in which we can ever hope to establish permanent and prosperous farming communities  in many parts of the western provinces. In  the interior of British Columbia farming without irrigation is a hazardous undertaking, and  it is frequently attended with heavy loss. Taking the Kettle valley as an example, it is no  exaggeration to say that the damage caused  by the drouth during the past summer would  have paid for an efficicent modern gravity irrigation system. This loss is irreparable, not,  perhaps, from a monetary standpoint, but because it discourages the farmer, who is acknowledged to be the backbone of any  country.  The proposition hasoften been advanced that  a private company might be found that would  be willing to install, a system here on the same  terms as the government. But anyone who  has ever had anything to do with private corporations is well acquainted with their grasping propensities. During prosperous times  they always manage to advance rates on some,  pretext until they get 90 per cent of the producer's profits, and in dull seasons they take  all. For this.reason the farmers have turned  to the government for help. They are willing  to give it enough time to construct a system  of sufficient magnitude to supply the whole  valley with water, but for any undue delay the  proper authorities will undoubtedly be held  to strict accouiitabilitv.  As was the case in the last general election,  the indications at present are that in the next  provincial elections party lines will be badly  shattered.  Irrigation, to be profitable to the farmer and  and to bring the cost down to a minimum, can  only be done on a large scale. Although small  individual plants in this valley have proved  highly profitable to the owners this season,  mainly owing to good markets and high prices  for products, there is no guarantee that these  conditions will condition, and a time may���������  and very likely will���������come when these plants  will be too much of a drain on the owners'  incomes to be maintained profitably. The only  alternative then would be cheaper water or  abandonment of the farms. Cheaper water  could only be obtained through a community  water s-ystem, eucouragecl by tbe government.  We can scarcely call it a government aided  system, because by the plan now in vogue the  government simply loans the money at interest to farmers for the construction ol the systems. The government installs the plants, and  when the farmers repay the cost of them, together with the inferest on the principal, they  become the property of the farmers. That is  the extent to which the farmers of this district  In the army, every camp, no matter how  small, had its incinerator. Fatigue parties  were told off, and every scrap of litter was  collected and burned. All cans also were put  in the (ire to remove particles of food that  would attract fiies. Many of these incinerators  were of quite inexpensive improvised construction; -others, were specially manufactured.  The splendid freedom of the army from  typhoid fever-attests their otneiency. Moreover, in this manner the camps were kept decent and tidy. Compare tin's with the disgraceful method employed by many civilian  communities of clumping garbage in huge, evil-  smelling, unsightly heaps* Worst of all, such  dumps are actually used for filling hollows on  which houses are to be,. used. If mere temporary communities, such as military camps,  can efficiently and decently dispose of their  garbage, how absurd to say that villages and  towns can not do it. In this respect, if in no  other, let us take a leaf put of the army's book  and profit by the lessons learned during the  war.  -^  W-hat'sWrong With Your Eyes?  : Do you suffer from headache?

They were made in Ecuador of the  Carludovica palmata, a shrub that grows in  the hot, humid regions of South America.

Gray, an old-timer of Grand  Forks, passed through the city this  evening, on his way to Elko, B.C.,  from Copper mountain.  Assurance Doubly Sure  The old merchant was undoubtedly  very ill. In his own mind, at all  events, he felt that his days were  numbered, and sent for his family  lawyer. ,  This light of the law now sat at  his bedside, notebook in hand, eager  to catch each word as   it was uttered:  ' I wish " began the sick man.  "Yes," answered the lawyer, hastily filling in the gap  "All my property and estate to go  to my eldest daughter."  The legal gentleman duly made a  note of the fact.  "I wish to die firm in the knowledge that the property is assured to  her," continued the merchant, with  eatfer excitement.  "Of course���������of course!" fussed the  solicitor.

Cut the celery in  crescent-shaped pieces as it naturally  slices, and the apples in eighths, and  then across in thin slices, and crumble, but not chop, the nuts.

Apple Dumpling.���������What child, or  grown-up person even, does not like a  baked apple dumpling? Now for this  sweet, either suet crust or crust made  with butter or dripping may be used.  Roll it out to a quarter of an inch in  thickness and cut in rounds, allowing  two for each apple. The apples should  be largo, thinly,pared, cut in half  and cored. If preferred, the cores may  be left in, as the apple pips are said  to give a flavor to. the dumplings.  Should the cores be removed, a little  sugar may be placed in the cavity and  the apples joined toeether again. Wet  the edges of the pastry rounds; place  the prepared apple on one round, and  another round on top. It will then be  easy to join the rounds together,  completely covering the apple, Should  the joins make the crust too thick  just in the middle, a little must be  piuched off, because a great thick nest-  of crust is very likely to spoil the  dumpling.
