In bis address al the opening of
the fifteenth annual fair iaet Thursday, E C Henniger, member for
Qrand Forks, said:
HMr. President, Ladies atd Gentlemen:—We are gathered to lake
part in our annual event, and it affords me a great deal ot pleasure to
take part in this the fifteenth annual
opening of the Urand Forks Agricultural and Industrial Fair.
Before going any further I want
to express my appreciation of the
courtesy extended to me by tbe
president aod directors io inviting
me to take part on tbis occasion,aud
I would lake this opportunity ol \
congratulating not only {he president and directors of your association, but also those who are exhibit
ing here, on the wonderful display
of exhibits io the many different
lines f the agricultural industry
which are being shown tbis year.
It must indeed be gratifying to
visitors to tbis fair, and especially
to those who are residents of our
valley, to walk around viewing
the wonderful production of the
soil and feel tbat tbeir lot is cast in a
part of our Dominion whioh iscapa-
ble of such excellent production.

Provincial Competition
It may not be generally known
that tbis valley of ours in provincial-
wide, competition has in tbe past
taken first place, tbree years out of
five, for the best fruit and vegetable displays among the districts of
this province, and won the district
competition cup presented for tbat
purpose by James Anerson, the
first president of the Nelson Agri-
tural and Industrial association;and
these victories were won at a
time when we bad no irrigation system and when we were competing
against districts that had considerable acreage under irrigation at that
Better Opportunities Now
If we were so successful in raising
and producing fruits and vegetables
during the years 1905 to 1911 without the assistance of an irrigation
system, as results bave oleer'y demonstrated, how much more successful should we be now, when,
witb the aid of tbe government, we bave a splendid irrigation
system whioh gives service to some
3300 acres of tbe best land in tbe
valley, and, I venture to say, in fer-
Jility will compare well with tbe best
lands in any part of tbe Dominion.
Source of Prosperity
We must never overlook tbe fact
that the prosperity of any country
depends principally to what extent
its farming aod agricu tural industry has been developed. History
shows tbat no nation has been able
to maintain its position wben it
neglected to give the necessary support to tbe farming industry which
it deserved. This wonderful province of British Columbia has often
been referred to as a ' 'sea of mount-
tains"; but it is fast coming into its
own aB a great agricultural province.
In 1921 tbe tout agricultural products of the province were worth
159,742,994; and while we have
great mining industries, as our province is supposed to be essentially A
raining province; and wbile we have
fishing industries tbat are second to
none in the Dominion, yet our agrin
cultural production exceeded in
v lue the combined pi od net ion of
both tbese industries hy $17,722,-
683, which goes to show tbe important place agriculture has assumed
in this province.
Assisting the Settler
legislation enacted by tbe provincial government io 1921 authorized the agricultural department to
alliw a rebate on stumping powder
to settlers clearing land, which has
acted as a great stimulus along thiB
line. Uuder this policy settlers have
purchased 36,327 cases of powder,
and according to returns msde to
the department, over 15,000 acres of
land have been brought under production, while 6548 actual settlers
bave made application and received
rebates on stumpiug powder.
Potato Show
The first annual-potato show to be
held io the province was, as you
know, beld in Qrand Forks last November, and sbould do much to
stimulate tbe potato industry in this
province. This year it will be held
in Victoria, from November 12 to
17, aod we are looking forward to
seeing the growers from Qrand Forks
bring back from tbe Victoria potato
show some of tbe higb awards wbicb
undoubtedly wilt be hung up there
for competition among the exbibin
I can not let this opportunity
pass withont Baying a word or two
about our local irrigation system,
As you all know, we bave an abundant supply of water tor irrigation
purposes, but we are now confronted
with tbe most important task of all
—that is, getting the full benefit
from the water. Tbe school of experience has taught us tbat ws can
not get the maximum results from
irrigation unless the land is proper
ly levelled and prepared to use tbe
water on it. If the land is not so
properly levelled before turning on
the water, the crop on tbe high
spots will die out for want of moist-
ure wbile you drown out the crop in
the low places in an effort to reaoh
tbe higher land, with tbe result
that you use considerable more
water than is necessary without getting the results that you expect.
Our experience this season has
taught many of us tbat the land
must be worked intosucb shape that
the water can be nsedto advantage;
but tbere are still many wbo do not
realize the absolute necessity of this.
It is true that t j put the land in
shape for irrigation is a very expensive operation, but the results from
proper irrigation at a minimum eost
will fully justify tbe initial work of
preparing tbe land and, in my
opinion, succrss in irrigated farm
ing can not be attained unless this
method is followed. I am satx
isfied that.the old order of farming
large tracts of land will pass away
and intensified farming will take its

portunity for su cess than what we
have here in Grand Forks. With a
wonderful climate, a beautiful valley with fertile soil and with a
splendid irrigation system spread
over it, the issue is up to us to make
a success. We must acquire a more
optimistic spirit and strive to make
Grand Forks a great and wealthy
agricultural center—produce the
goods that will find a ready market.
Look forward to being successful
and you will succeed.
On behalf of the directors, I now

ln tbe mountains of the South
there are men who, though illiterate, bave answered the call to the
ministry. Naturally, they are handicapped, for tbey mnst depend on
others to read the Bible to tbem.
But uofortunately—so we learn
from MrB. Cora Wilson Stewart in
Moonlight Schools—some of tbe
pupils that the day schools turo out
are ae poor readers as those who
never went to school.
"Paul was an oyster man," one of
them once read to an illiterate minister—meaning of course "an austere
man." Tbe next Sunday the preacher declared to bis congregation tbat
Peter was a fieherman and that Paul
wbb an oyster man. Thus his flock
got a conception of Paul that probably was unique.
Another minister heard the sentence, "Jacob made booths for his
cattle," road "Jacob made boots for
his cattle." The following Sunday
be eaid from the pulpit: "Jacob, tbat
humaae man, would not even permit his cattle to go barefooted, but
made boots for them to protect
tbeir tender feet as they walked
over the stones."

Notes, Notions and Notables
The address of the member for   Grand
Forks at the opening of the fair last Thursdays, which we print on another page of this
issue,  contains   some interesting   statistical
matter and is sufficiently optimistic in tone
to warrant the people who are now residents
of this district not to be in a hurry to change
their location.    Like every other sensible person, Mr. Henniger has faith in the Boundary
country, because we have a fine climate, pro.
ducing orchards,  fertile land to be  brought
under cultivation, and rich mineral and  timber resources.    All that is required to start a
healthy growth of the entire district is to do
a little more development work on the various resources.   The  "boomster" can be dispensed with, because the "prosperity" he creates is   fictitious,   and the reaction usually
leaves the community in a worse condition
than prevailed  before he made his appearance on the scene.
Aerial travel in Europe is more popular
than in this country. It is said that seventy
planes are in operation between France and
the northern coast towns of Afriea. In one
day the same pilot in an aerial taxi carried
passengers from London 10 Manchester and
back and then from London to Amsterdam
arid back. In all he Hew about one thousand
isn't,'she seriously responded,'but we were
afraid of the shock yon might get.' Why, what
shock?' 'Well, there was a big fire just across
the street, and were afraidJf you awoke, and
saw the flames, you might think that the
operation hadn't been successful.'"
"Metal Mike" is a mechanical instrument
that, on being hooked up to a gyro-compass
and the steering wheel of a vessel, automatically holds the vessel to a straight course.
The instrument is sensitive enough to detect
a variation of one-sixth of a degree, whereas
the most skillful human control can do no
better than one degree. Despite the keenest
watchfulness a helmsman will let his vessel
"fall off" many times, but "Metal Mike" never
does. In a rocen* test with the instrument in
control the rudder of a large steamer did not
move for twenty-seven minutes. Such steadi -
ness greatly lessens lateral sea pressure tha t
comes from a wavering course and results in
considerable saving of time and fuel.
Recently, a newspaper dispatch from Chicago declared that a highly edncated man,
whose uame it gave, a civil engineer by pro-
fess:on, and a holder of several aeademic degrees, had declined the offer of a professorship
in a college unspecified in order to become a
plasterer at $104 a week in ChicaSo. We do
uot know whether the dispatch is authentic or
not; but it is completely plausible. At present
pay a young man who wants money will do
better at plasteriug than at professional work
of any sort. Whether he will be better off
twenty years from now is another matter. .
Since several countries in Europe quote
their paper money circulation in trillions, it
may be interesti; g to try to grasp what a tril-
lioo is. Some experts in the treasury at Washington can count four thousand silver dollars
an hour. Such an expert working eight hours
a day would need a hundred years to count a
billion dollars. A thousand experts would
need one hundred years to count a trillion.
There seems to be hope still of the United
States becoming a member of the Leagne of
Nations. Senator Underwood in a speech to
the Alabama legislature expressed his willingness to be the presidential candidate of his
pany. He delared that, although he had opposed the eighteenth amendment and the
Volstead act, he stood for rigid enforcement
of what is the law of the land; and he expressed the hope that thc Democratic convention would pledge the party, if successful
in the elections, "to take our place in international affairs."
The California Fruit Growers' exchange
salvages its by products. Last year its plant
at Corona worked up 6.50 carloads of cull
lemons into citric acid and lemon oil. Another
plant handles 80carloads of cull oranges a
month, converting them into orange oil, concentrated orange juice for beverages, orange
vinegar, marmalade and orange peel. The
refuse furnishes pectin, which is the substance
that causes fruit juices to jelly.
There are several distinct good stories in
the recently published "Reminiscences" of
George H. Ham. Hero is one of them. He
underwent a serious operation, and on losing
consciousness his thought was, "This is eternity." "When I recovered from the effects of
the opiate, I found myself in a darkened room
and wondared where I was and what it was
all about. The kindly-featured nurse quickly
discovered that my consciousness had returned, and came to my bedside, and then I
remembered everything, 'But why this dark
room? It was early morning when they operated on me, but now it can't be night.' 'No, it
Captain E. T. Pollock,governor of American
Samoa, reports the finding of a turtle that
had been left on the Tonga islands by Captain
James in 1773. According to Captain Pollock's report, the turtle exhibited signs of extreme age; it was blind and when walking
creaked like an oxcart.
At the Institute of Politics at Williams-
town, Mass, Mr. Bakhmeteff, formej Russian
ambassador to the United States, predicted
the ultimate fall of the soviet government.
He based his prediction on the fact that the
communists are waging a losing fight against
the growing demand of the peasants for individualism and ownership of their lands. He
looked forward toa new Russia in which individualism and equality of opportunity, operating as tbey do in the United States, would
bring prosperity and happiness. Social revenge has run its course, he thinks; and the
peasant is becoming an independent farmer.

The Objects of this Institution, for which Incorporation was recently ob*
tained, are: "To provide a Home and Refuge for Baby aod Infant Blind; to
provide free Scientific Care, Training and Maintenance; to Save the Lives of
even a few of the many of such unfortunates, who, for the lack of suoh service, perish every year; and to return these little ones to their parents, at
sohool age with normal, healthy bodies and sound minds'."
This iu a large and graatly needed Child Welfare Service. Careful enquiry
at the Qovernment offices in the verious provinces reveals the fact that there
are at the presant time nearly 250 Infant Blind in the Dominion, Nothing
has yet been done for those helpless little ones. In the United States, 16
years ago, the first home was opened in New York City; they have now homes
in 13 States, all doing excellent work. In England, some time ago, Sir Arthur Pearson organized "Sunshine House," Chorley Wood, for Blind Babies,
and he claims that it is the only one ia the British Empire. Let us have the
SECOND in Canada. To reach this worthy end money is urgently required.
Fifty Thousand Dollars is the present objective of the Boajd. While the
Home is to be located in Ottawa it will take in the Baby Blind from every
province, so that this APPEAL for funds will be Dominion wide, and an
early and generous response is confidently expected. Cheques should be made
payable to the Canadian Blind Babies Home Association. All remittances
will be promptly acknowledged.

Ten Commandments
For the Motorist
The ten commandments of good
driviug are as follows:
1. Drive on tbe right side of the
rnad; it is just as good as the left.
2. Slow down when approaching
t crossroad; it is nearly as dangerous as a railroad crossing.
3. Look out for children, ~~* (ou
can never tell what they will do,and
you are always in the wrong if you
hit one.
4. Try to help instead of hinder
the traffic officer; he is there for
your goof', and he's got a lough job.
5. Be sure that your "dimmers"
reilly dim; it's no joke driving into
a blinding glare, as you probably
6. Read and obey tbe warning
signs; tbey are not put up as ornaments.
7. If you feel you've got to speed
—do it where it won't kill anybody
but yourself.
8 When making minor repairs
stop where your car may be seen
from both directions; otherwise you
may stop longer than you anticipate.
9. Speeding around comers is a
straight route to the hospital. Don'i.
race past a Btopped street car.  Some

The following editorial recently
appeared in the Windsor "Border
Cities Star": A recent cargo of silk,
en route from China to New York,
was snipped via Vancouver and the
Canadian Pacific Railroad and crossed the St. Lawrence to Ogdensburg,
New York, instead of being sent
across the United States from San
Francisco. The incident offers something for Canadians to think about.
It proves what a splendid service
the Canadian Pacific offers in its
rail and steamship lines. In a country like Canada, transportation is all
essential, and the way the Canadian
Pacific has carried on, in spite of
the business difficulties which began with the war and are not yst
smoothed out, is a credit to the nation which conceived it.
Again, the incident calls attention
to Canada's splendid gateway to the
East. Although China is in a chaotic
political' condition just now, the
huge Oriental nation offers wonderful trade, chances in the future. Ne
nation is better placed for getting its
share of this business than Canada,
