Vernon, August 19,—In an earnest
endeavor to fu.misli all contract holders of tho Associated Growers with
authentic information as to how their
business is bking handled at Central,
the organization Ims been issuing in
formation regularly to locals which
the oxecutive feels that growers gen
orally aro n t cognizant of. The ex
ecutive arrives ut this conclusion be
cause so many growers ure receiving and giving a certain
amount of credence to senseless
rumors which would never for one
moment iecoutonuneed by the sincere
grower whose unswerving loyalty and
earnestness has built up and made
possible the attainment of the ideal
toward which our eyes have been
turned for years,
It was felt that a short synopsis o
what is being done, publishrd in the
columns of onr papers would be the
best means of conveying to the grower the plan which has been followod
to disseminate information that Cen.
tral feels is the real information—that
the grower desires.
Daily thare is sent out from this
office to all locals:
1. Wire Bulletins. This contains a
copy of every wire receivod in this
2. Shipmsnts bulletins, which contain a statement of everything shipped
by the organization, whether it be L.
C. L. or car lots.
3. Markoting .Summaries. Usually
out twice a week Contain full statement ou all varieties of frnit and
vegetables moving at the date the
summary issentout—atrivals, co-id/-
tions and general attitude of trade.
4. Price Lists. Give prices quoted
to the trade and effective immediately
on everything that is moving at the
date of issue.
To the trade is issued as often as
is necessary:
5. Jobbers' and Brokers' Bulletin,
giving complete information on all
fruit and vegetables for shipment,
giving details of quantity available
for mixed cars and straight cars with
date when ready.
In addition to these there is a conn
stant stream of circulars udvising all
locals on oAery matter on which advice from Central could possibly be of
service to the local.
6. Director's Synopsis Circular.
Every two weeks a complete resume
of executive minutes is sent to every
director of the Associated Growers.
This contains much material which is
not actually embodied in the minutes
but is nevertheless of primary interest to the directors. By means of this
circular the director is kopt properly
informed aud posted and is in a position to answer intelligently the growers whom he represents at Central.
This as readily applies to your local manager with the information
given to him by means of the bulletins above mentioned.
When you hear what your director
or your local manager has to-say in
answer to any question you may ask,
remember that he is not speaking
from rumor or hearsay or telling you
something to placate you, but instead
is possessed of authentic information
from Central aud can and is giving
you actual facts, not excuses and
To the press has been issued a good
many statements which your executive felt would lead to a better anj
more h.*lpful understanding on many
diversified subjects We would like
.to take this opportunity of drawing
thu growers' attention to the debt
they owe to the major portion of our
papers in giving these statements
space and publicity.
Short of uctuully bulletining every
grower in the organization the executive feol that thoy have made ii sincere and earnest endeavor to reach all
growers through their central director
and their local managers. They also
have offered to attend all meetings
that were called aud to which they
wort invited These have been far
more numerous than the averuge
grower realizes, due to the immense
size of the territory that the organization embraces.
This statement is issued in the
earnest hope that growers will mnke
use of the information available lo
them and so rofuto rumor instead o
giving credence to it —Executive,
Associated Glowers of British Columbia, Limited.

The recent wheat conference in
Chicago is a shining example of "too
mucb surplus talk," says B. VV
Show in The Farm Journal for August. Deploring tbe low price of
wheat and claiming a surplus ot 170
bushels to be carried over to tbe
new crop, the gathering convinced
American consumers and foreign
buyers tbat they were on "easy
street" so far aa future wheat needs
were concernod, and the perfectly
logical result was a further price decline ia this grain of some 10 cents
a bushel.
Of course tbere Is a surplus stock
to carry over. Tbere is a surplus
stock every year. A surplus of this
kind is the reserve or insurance fund
established against famine. Tbe
amount carried over this year is not
excessive. It is less than it has frequently been io tbe past. It represents possibly tbree months' supply,
and «ny less would be a dangerously
slim margin of safety. Tbere is absolutely no justification for regarding such a carry over a reason for
depressing priies, aDd it would
r-ardly have been so regarded but
for the unfortunate advertising of
as tbough it were something abnormal and threatening.
I am unable to see anything in
tbe wheat situation whicb justifies
tbe present extreme pessimism so
prevalent among producers, nor the
price ideas that are entertained by
Abont the only definite figures
that we have, by whicb to measure
wheat supplies, are tbe monthly ren
ports of stocks beld in Becond hands
throughout tbe world. On August
1, 1919, there were in second band
stocks in the world 306 million
bushels, From that date eacb year
up to 'nd including 1922,the second
hand stocks have bten steadily
shrinking, last year being only 124
million bushels, or less tban pre-war
boidings. In otber words, tbe world
for the past four years has consumed
more wheat than it bas produced,
thus drawing eacb year upon tbe
surplus arcumulated os a war effort.
On January 1 of this year world
second hand stocks were301 million
bushels, or 68 million more than the
year before; but on June 1 these
stocks were down to 207 million, or
only 17 million more tban last year.
It appears, therefore, that during
the first five months of tbis year we
drew from accumulated stocks of
tbe world 51 million bushels more
than we did last year—a rate wbicb
if maintained during the next two
months would give a smaller carry
over tbis year tban last.
A notion whiob is wrong to begin
witb naturally leads to  the seeking
of illusory remedies for the imagin
ary condition. Hysterical appeals to
the people to eat more pork, eat
more beef, eat more bread, more
fruit, more milk, butter, eggs, in
fact, more of everythiogs, where
anyone is interested in production
and dissatisfied with price, represents a very hazy and rather childish
idea of bow people manage tbeir
eating. If literally carried out, instead of tbe lean lanky figure that
typifies Uncle Sam, we would bee
come a nation of big waisted and
heavy-jowled,overfed and inefficient
In the face of the facts it sbould
be evident tbat wheat growers are
unnecessarily depressed. Production
and consumption tbe world over are
very closely adjusted, and there is
no occasion for dumping the. present crop upon tbe market. In fact,
the trouble is in marketing methods
raiber than in tbe quantities of grain
for sale. If we ever get away from
mass action under the lead of a
hysteri-s that ignores facts, we shall
find tbat the wheat situation is fundamentally sound.
The Dominion department of
agriculture will continue its investigations this summer, especially obtaining information in regard to tbe
bearing of time of picking and subsequent method of storge and shipping on this trouble. Growers, in
tbe meantime, ar** advised to check
the general opinion wbich prevailed
last year by picking some of their
fruit earlier, and where possible
earning under what condition it is
subsequently stored and shipped.—

Ph. J. Baldensperger writes
in the Bulletin of Beekeeping
of tbe Alpes Maritimes:
While traveling through
Spain I happened to meet a
beekeeper who had a few
colonies; I asked him where
he sold his honey. "Here are
my customers," said he, pointing to a number of children,
resplendent with health.
"Why should I go to the
druggist to buy extracts of
plants, which are bitter, when
the same medicine is found in
the honey that my bees produce, in the sweetest shape."
He Needed Another Year
"Position wanted" ran an
advertisement in a Shanghai
newspaper. "A young Chinese with fonr years' experience in English seeks place
as a junior clerk. Salary no
objection." As a matter of
fact, it usually isn't.
Last year some varieties of apples,
especially the Jonathan, did not
keep as well in British Columbia as
usual, the flesh becaming brown unexpectedly. Tbe term "Jonathan
breakdown" bas been applied to
this trouble by a number of the
fruit growers. As this "breakdown,"
if ot annual occurrence, would result ip great loss to the fruit growers, tbe Dominion department of
agriculture began an investigation
of the trouble early last winter.
Injured apples were submitted to
specialists to determine if it were a
disease wbicb was affecting them ;
but no disease could be found,hence
further investigation has been made
aloDg otber lines. In order to obtain
the views of the fruit growers themselves as to tbe cause of tbis injury
to tbeir fruit, 2425 copies of a ques-
tiooaire were sent to as many individual fruit growers in British Columbia. Questions were asked in ren
gard to condition of soil, methods of
irrigation, if any, in 1922 aod in
previous years, varieties affected,
and methods of picking and storing
fruit with their affect on the "breakdown."
Many answers were received to
this questionaire, and some of the
outstanding conclusions reached by
a majority of those who replied
fully were as follows:
1. The opinion seems to be prac**
tically unanimous that the "breakdown" is due to a combination of,
(a) leaving tbe fruit too long on tbe
tree in order to obtain the high
color required by the selling agencies, (b) followed by storing or ship-
ping under conditions not favorable
to its keeping in best condition. To
this conclusion is added the statement by fruit growers that even
when the fruit is left to color highly
on the trees, when stored in their
own cellars it keeps normally. The
largest fruit is believed to be tbe
most affected.
2. Some growers think tbat tbe
"breakdown" is to due lo picking in
the beat of tbe day and allowing it
to remain sometimes for several
days in tbe orchard witb the alternate heating and cooling by day and
nigbt,   followed   by  being taken to
'tbe warehouse, where storage rooms
are not very cold and sometimes
poorly ventilated.
3. The trouble does not seem to
be as prevalent in tbe non-irrigated
as in the inigated sections. Some
growers in tbe irrigated sections
report it worse were tbere was a
shortage of water,wbile others think
that too water is the cause of it.
It is a source of constant wonder
to publishers the world over how
The Family Herald Hnd Weekly Star
of Montreal can be printed and
mailed to any part in Canada at the
small subscription price of two dollars a year.
Some otber papers may quote a
lower subscription price but, they do
not contain one-fifth, nor in many
cases not even one-tenth of tbe reading matter published each week by
rhe Family Herald and Weekly Star
People everywhere are now selecting their rending material witb
greater discrimination than in the
past. Instead of being loaded witb a
lot of second rate papers and magazines, they are now saying mooey
by discarding the chaff and subscribing to the Family Herald and
Weekly Star of Montreal—the one
big, all round journal that provides
in its seventy-two pages every week
an ample volume and variety of
reading to satisfy every member of
the familv.
Io addition to being the best Informed, most practical and helpful
paper for farmers, the Family Herald and Weekly provides the best of
serial and shert stores, complete departments for women and young
folks, powerful editoriels on tbe
most important topics of tbe day, a
complete weekly digest of the world
news, in fact a veritable library of
information, entertainment and in-
spirstion On acconnt of its clean,
wholesome and helpful character,
irs phenomenal value aod powerful
influence for good, it is not too
much to say tbat the Family Herald

A start on the actual work of

Among cbe many blessings which
a beneficent providence has shower-id upon British Columbia, not the
least is her wealth of game animals
and birds. No other part of tl-e
civilized world hss such a variety of
big game, birds and fur bearers.
Tbe approaching open season promises to result in the killing, legiti-
mateand otherwise, of a iarger total
of game than in any former season,
and this year the government has
determined to enforce fully the game
regulations, which are felt to he at
once liberal and yet strict enough to
ensure conservstion.
Attorney-General Manson has pent
Col.McMullen,chief of the provincial
police, on a tour of organizaiton in
connection with tbe enforcement of
tbe game laws. And tbe minister
and members of tbe game conservation board, through their statements,
are appealing to tbe spirit of fair-
play in sportsmen to protect the
game of British Columbia.
Attorney General Manson has
written Premier Mackenzie Ring
askiug for information regarding the
possibility of tbe United States providing for tbe transportation nf
liquor from British Columbia points
through AlaKkun territory to Atlin,
Unless American regulations are
changed tbe supply of liquor in Atlin will not carry the government
liquor store over winter, but the attorney general is determined to
break dowu tbe barrier if thai is
consistently possible.
Action probably will be taken by
counsel for British Columbia, as

of the Saskatchewan appellate court

sky law, known ae the sale of shares
act, was ultra virus of the province.
This, states Attorney-General Man-
son, who has given a great deal of
attention to tbe matter, makes it
appear that tbe hands of the province are tied. But it is likely, he
holds, that the provinces will nr-k
permission to intervene at Ott ma

adjusted satisfactorily.

Notes, Notions and Notables
The American Classical league, on association of scholars who are interested in the study
of Greek and Latin, has made the  reasonable
suggestion  that   a simplified  form of Latin
might ba used as an auxiliary "international''
language. Such a language would be an unquestionable  convenince;  but the jealousies
and rivalries of the European nations make it
impossible for them to  unite on any single
tongue   as   a medians of international communication. Moreover none of the   invented
languages—Volapuk, Ido, Esperanto and so
forth—seem to have any vitality.   Latin, on
the other hand, has never wholly ceased to be
spoken. It is still the official language of the
Roman church, and scholars in all parts ofthe
world are familiar with it. For general use the
structure of the language would be simplified
and the order of words modified to agree with
modern methods of expression.   It wonld be
something more like mediaeval than classical
A village in Kansas has found a way to
keep a good doctor. Two hundred residents
of the town and the surrounding country
formed an association, each member of which
was to pay $1.5 a year for medical attendance
and an additional fee for any night call. With
that guaranty they were able to get a first
class doctor who not only answers calls in
cases of sickness but spends part of his time
in preventing sickness. He says he is seldom
called unnecessarily.
A corner :n labor is not unlike a corner in
stocks. When the public stops buying an article because the price is too high there soon
comes a slump.
Among the many woes of China is a revival
of the opium evil. Great Britain agreed to
prevent opium from being sent into China if
China wonld suppress the cultivation of the
poppy and desist from making opium at home.
For a time China did discourage and greatly
reduce the home production, but when Indian
jpium ceased to be a competitor and anarchy
spread over the country the laws were relaxed,
and many of the proviucial governments actually encouraged, and in some provinces required, the cultivation of the p'jppy for the
revenue they derived from it. Now, it is reported, the crop in China is nearly as large as
it was before there were any restrictions, and
because of the official indifference the use of
the drug has increased to an alarming extent.
The production is reported to be enormous
and the demand "limitless."
Up to the present time the French have
done little prospecting for oil in France, but
have bought nearly all of their motor fuel
abroad. Recent changes in the French min-
ing laws, udvautageous to prospectors, and a
government subsidy make it likely that bor
ings will now begin. The most promising
regions seem to be near the Auvergne mountain and in thc department of Ain.

The werld's wheat crop this year is estimated at 3,318,000,000 bushels, as compared
with 3,104,000,000 bushels last year, an increase of 214,000,000 bushels, according to
figures compiled by the International Institute
of Agriculture at Rome. The estimated shipments from supply countries of the world for
the year is 690,000,000 bushels, of which Canada is expected to supply 290,000,000 bushels,
or about one-third.

Edward Fitzgerald, the translator of Omar
Khayyam, experimented long before he found
a suitable metre for the Rubaiyat. A memorandum in his awn handwriting exists in which
he quotes his quatrain:
O shall we once again beneath the beams
Of yon chaste moon renew this night's fon d
Or shall her rays reflect a flickering path
Across our lives' far separated streams?
He notes that when he copied the lines he
negleoted to put down the author's name and
adds that he may have reud them in the Keepsake of 1842 or thereabouts.
The collector who acquired the memorandum—William Harris Arnold—says in the
Century Magazine that he has had all the old
Keepsakes in the British Museum from 1835
to 1845 ransacked for the verse, but it has not
come to light. However, Fitzgerald did not
begin his translation until 1850 or later—his
first mention of the work was made in a letter
of the yaar 1857—aud it may be that the
Keepsake in which he saw the verses was of
a later date than 1845. Here is chance for
some bibliophile to make a rare find.
Thc expectation that the personnel of the
delegates to the imperial and  economic conference to be held in London in October  will
be announced within a few days attracts   at-
tontion to the subjects that will be discussed
thereat. While the expeotatioo that preferential trade   within the   empire,   imperial  defence and the European situation will receive
mnch   attention,  still  the impression is that,
insofar as  Canada is concerned, there  is   a
stronger probability of action on immigration
from the British isles than anything else. It
is pretty well agreed that until Great  Britain
is prepared to grant a substantial preference on
foods grown within tbe empire, it will not be
possible for Canada to do much more in  the
way of increasing  the preference on imports
from Great Britain. The recent increase in ar
rivals from Greut Britain is considered satisfactory  in  a sense, but reports to the effect
that emigrants are seeking antrance to the
United  .States,  some  being unable, through
the exhaustion of their national quota, to get
in, ^jas convinced many that a   much   larger
immigration may be secured, if it is ouly gone

CROP OF 1924
It may bea little too early to begin thinking of next year's honey
crop, but the successful boekeeper
knows that the success of next year's
crop depends upon the preparations
made for it and the time they are
made. A successful season depend s
to a large extent upon good wintering'
Good wintering depends upon three
things, namely: colonies weli filled
with young bees, an abundance of
wholesome stores, and adequate protection from the varying outside tern
perature during the winter and early
The first filing, then, is to get
colonies well filled with young bees
and to get them beftre the winter sets
in; this means that we must have the
bees produced between the months of
July aud Octoder, and in ordor to do
this we must have a prolific queen
in the hi e during the montha of August and September. The first step.
therefore, in producing a crop of
honey in 1924 is to see that every
colony is headed with a good, prolific
queoti during the latter part of July
or the first week in August A good
second year queen will often produce
the required number of hoes in the
fall, but she is very likely to get lost
during the winter or fail the following spring. A young queen reared -Jur
ing the latter part of June or July is
most depenable, for she is not only
prolific during the fall but she is comparatively young and prolific the uext
spring, the }*n seasons of the year
when brood production counts most
Every beekeeper should examine
his colonies during the latter part of
July aud destroy all queens that show
I tha least signs of failing, replacing
them with young queens that are pro
lific. Old queens that are still pro-
duciug a maximum amount of brood
can Im left and replaced later in the
reason by younger queens.
A good system of requeening tho col»
onies is one that is combined with
swarm control measures-; that is, introducing the young queen at the
same time treatment is applied to control swarming. During the main flow
from clover, when swarming is most
intense and the colonies havo larvae
in queen cups, remove the old queen
from the hive and destroy all queen
cells present. Nine days later again
remove all queen cells aud introduce a
young laying queen. By this method
the swarming is controlled and the
colonies are requeened at the right
time If the old queen is prolific and
increase is desired a frame or two of
emerging brood may be removed with
her and placed in a new hive. This
nucleus can be built up into a strong
co'onyby fall, when the old queen can
be replaced by a yonng one.—C. B.

If the Canadian ore-war exports
of flour are considered as 100, the

This Indicates that Canada has
more than doubled her export trade
in flour while the United States
has increased its trade by 47 per

present her exports average 7,885,-
