Under New Arrangement
of C.P.R. Shippers May
Obtain Through Freight
Winnipeg, Oct. 18.—Western
Canada's export business in fruit,
potatoes nnd otber lines of produce
has developed to such proportions
that expoiters are now arranging to
establish big collecting w 'rehouses
in Winnipeg and other cities of the
prairie provinces. The Canadian
Pacific railway has granted Bpecial
storage in transit privileges at Win
nipeg, Regina, Moose Jaw, Leth
bridge and Calgary on carload shipments of apples in boxes originating
in British Columbia.
Formerly apples fram British
.Columbia if shipped to Winnipeg
and tben reshipped to eastern Cans
ada or the United States, had to
bear the burden of two freight
charges. Under the new arranges
ment the shipper has the privilege
of holding this produce iu Wiun
peg or any of the otber western citieB
named for a period of six months
and then on reshipment he gets the
advantnge of the through rate.
The new regulation regarding the
shipmedt of apples was effective
October 16 to poinis iu Canada east
of Port Artbur.and to Canadian and
United States Atlantic seaboard
points. On November 17 the same
regulations will come into effect to
-other points in tbe United States.

Sherbrooke.—Three years in the
St. Vincent de Paul penitentiary wai
trui sentence on Joseph Couture, of
the township of Lingwick, for placing a bolt and a spike on the Canadian Pacific Railway track. The
case was heard before Judge J. H.
Lemay, in the District Magistrate's
Court, when the accused was charged
with placing obstacles on the railway track with intention to destroy
valuable property and endanger human life. The accused immediately
pleaded guilty and, after receiving
the usual warning from the court,
was committed for trial. He asked
for a speedy trial befdrt Judge Lemay. Counsel for th* plaintiff advised the court that the accused had
a rather bad record and claimed that
he had previously served one term
of two years and two separate terms
of four years in jail.
The court commented upon the
seriousness of the offence insofar as
valuable property and scores of lives
were threatened, and pointed out
that he Was liable for a term of five
years, or even a term for life if it
were proven that the obstacles had
bee :  place there intentionally.
Regina—"There is so much wheat
In some parts of Southern Saskatchewan that it will take until next
cummer to get it shipped out of the
country," said J. H. Chown, superintendent of the C.P.R. at Regina,
last night.
Mr. Chown made this statement
upon his return from a trip over
the southern lines of the Regina
district, the trip including the Areola line as far south as Stoughton,
through to Weyburn as far west as
Assiniboia and thence up the Soo
line to Moose Jaw.
"The wheat crop in some of the
districts in this area is as good or
better than 1916," said Mr. Chown,
"and now that threshing is well
under way some remarkable yields
are being demonstrated. Where
people expected to get 16 bushels to
the acre the threshing machine is
registering 26 bushels, where 26
bushels were anticipated they are
getting 35 bushels and where 30
bushels were estimated the yields an
running close up ,to 60 bushels to
the acre.
"At Vantage," continued Mr.
Chown, "I walked up to a threshing
outfit operating not far from the
station and engaged the thresher-
man ln operation. He told me the
'ield he was threshing was running
18 bushels to the acre. The grain
was uniform, well ripened, a good
color and an excellent sample of
wheat in evft-y respect."

A good deal has been said about
tbe ideal form of gove nment iu re«
cent years. But bave you ever realized that the ideal form of managing
business is found in the home of the
lowly busy bee?
In fact, the most wonderful tbing
found in the hive is tlie method of
government. During limes of peace
i the queen is a perfect sovereign, and

every bee in the hive works and acts
in perfect accord with her desires,

The fruit market is still in a chaotic condition, and the market "exparts" seem  to  be
as helpless in arriving at a solution  for the
present demoralization  of prices as the ordi -
nary individual. 'I'he only thing in which they
seem to show expertness now is to draw big
salaries and  to  pass the  blame for existing
conditions onto  semeone else.    If they don't
any more about marketing fruit than a laborer
they should work for a laborer's wage.    As it
ir now, evejybody who has anything   to  do
with the handling of the fruit get well paid—
some are overpaid.   But the   poor grower,
who does all the  work, gets  nothing.   There
are oven cases on record where he has had to
pay   for   the   privilege of growing the fruit.
This state of affairs not only spells ruin to the
growers but to other enterprises in every fruit
growing district of the province.

It is a splendid thing that school authorities
somewhere have started to realize that mobilization for peace must beg'n in the schoolroom.
There is room for the incorporation of this
larger conception of educution in the schools
of British Columbia.—Vaucouver Sun.
Yet we are not inclined to take a pessimistic
view af the fruit growing industry. There is
a future—a big future—for the British Columbia apple. The only thing required to
usher in this future is to get rid ofthe parasites that food on"the industry and to ovolv e
an economical and a workable marketing system. The orange growers of the South have
apparently made a succsss of their business,
after groping in the dark for many decades.
Why not study their present marketing
Many of us now living in the United States
will go hungry in the next fifty years unless
inventions to increase the productivity of the
soil are marketed, says Luther Burbank, the
noted agriculturist. The muximum production of foodstuffs per acre has been reached.
The greatest number of people who can be
supported on an acre of land is about five. If
.ill want food luxuries, only about two can be
■supplied. The United States is beginning to
be overpopulated in a measure, I believe.
The best and most prosperous days, agriculturally, are passing. When they are gone we
will never see them again. We must begin to
live more economically. The average person
very shortly will be obliged to give up all food
luxuries just as the Chinese and other inhabitants of densely populated countries. I do
not believe that any of the so-called intensive
cultivators of land will bring in better yields.
Agriculture today has about reached the stage
where it is impossible to get greater returns
from the soil. Modern methods of agricutture
secure for the average farmer today all that
the ground has to offer.
These are the purposes of the Better Pic
tures Association of the World:

Lovesickness may be described as the uni -
versal disease from which every man or woman suffers rt least once—usually more tban
once, says M. Andre Tridon, psychoanalyst.
Being in love is an obsession with perfectly
definitely and discoverable physical and mental reactions.
Lovesickness in its second stage—when love
is gratified—is the most glorious form of
health. The individual's organism is working
on a 100 per aent basis, and under the influence of that stimulation can accomplish tasks
which under any other circumstances'would
appear too difficult. Love stimulation is incomparably more powerful than that of any
other craving.
I believe that if a man and woman would
fall in love every year they would find the se -
eret"of eternal youth.
Supposing a young man is in love with a
girl he can not marry. He must fall in love
with a girl he can marry. If he adores the
boss' daughter and she is destii ed for a European count, let him find some other young
woman with red hair, or dimples, or a beautiful throat, or the physical fetieh, whatever it
may be which was the real inspiration of his
love. He will find it easy to transfer his affections to this second young woman. In love
there is always a substitute just as good.

Railway News
Montreal.—Ike Liter and Abram
Mayoff, who were arrested at Montreal on August 24th, charged with
giving money to C, P. R. conductors
on the Ste. Agathe Subdivision for
not collecting fares from parties of
passengers, appeared before Judge
Perrault on September 21st and
pleaded guilty to the charge, and
were sentenced to pay a fine of $25
ei'.ch and costs.
These are the first prosecutions
made in Canada on this charge,
which is covered by an amendment
to the Criminal Code under section
412A, making it a criminal offence
for giving or offering to give to conductors of any railway valuable consideration for not collecting fares
from passengers travelling on trains.
Figures have been issued recently
showing the accidents and casualties
occurring on the Pacific system of
the Southern Pacific Railway during
thc years 1918-11)21. They are sufficiently impressive:
Kan on track in front of train,
1,890; killed, 185; injured, 569. Ran
imo side of train, 676; killed 18;
injured, 253. Stalled or died on
track, 827; killed, 7; injured, 41.
Skidded Into side of train, 8U; injured, 17. Ran into crossing gates,
207; injured, 18. K.-tn into crossing
flagmen, 20; killed, 2; injured, 15.
Miscellaneous — (ran into cattle
guard, warning signs, etc.), 4G; killed, 1; injured, 8. Total accidents,
2,755; total killed, ?08; total injured,
921.      .
If the danger to people driving
automobiles recklessly was- confined
to such people one might be inclined
to view the situation with comparative equanimityj but the reverse is
very much the case. Railroads suffer

"Why, you might call ine
an insurance agent."
"Really,"said Brown,"I'm
an actuary with the Ajax.
What's your company?"
"Well, you see," remarked
Mr. Newcomer, "I've a company of my own."
"Well, I am surprised. We
seem to be entertaining a
capitalist in our midst."
The passing of these remarks had more or less fo-
cussed the attention of the
group on Newcomer. He, in
turn, felt an explanation was
more or less necessary.
"Perhaps I'd better explain," he began. "You all
carry insurance of many and
various kinds. In fact,besides
the regular fire, marine and
life policies, with which we
are all familiar, it seams as if
we could protect ourselves
against any kind of loss.
There has, however, been one
field never touched by insurance. So, I spend my time
working out protection foV
that field, .which ranks in importance with life and fire
and, as a matter of fact,  it is
sometimes more than either."
"Well, what  is that?   En
lightan us," spoke up one of
tliegrou p.
"Markets!"  jeplied    Newcomer.
"What do you mean?"
"Simply that time and experience have proved that
there is a policy whieh not
only extends over the field
but actually protects  against
inroads on a manufacturer's
"Well, I'd like to buy such
protection," said Henry, the
boot and shoe man. "What
do you call this policy?"
"Regular payment continuous advertising," replied
"Humph!" Brown ejaculated, "that's another angle
to an old story.'

A farm bureau report says
lambs are short. But there
are plenty in town.
ONLY a few short years agu tlie
noble Kootena)' Columbia Valley
was practically unknown except to its
few inhabitants. But no longer will
this great silent vale remain unknown
and inaccessible, for blasted out of the
rock and hewed through the great forests of pines there has heen built a liitili-
way, a great motor road, which will be
opened officially to the tourists next
year. This will he known as tbe Ilanff
Windermere Road. It follows a route
from Banff, through the Vermillion and
Sinclair pauses to thc Windermere district of the Columhia Valley, a distance of some eighty miles. On it the
traveller will follow the most wonderful succession of peaks, ravines and
Valleys on the North American continent, rivalling in rugged splendor those
seen along thc Grand Canyon of the
In the late Summer, under the direction of I.. O. Armstrong, the well-
known Canadian lecturer, and under tin1
auspices of the Canadian Pacific Kail-
way, there started from Banff a party
of writers and camera men This was
the firs! party privileged lo traverse the
new highway by the pack (rain method
of transit, and probably the Inst as the
road is practically completed.
Marble Canyon was the first side trip
of the party, this being some two miles
off thc main road and so named because
of the grey marble rocks that form ils
sides. Looking into the abysmal depths
of this narrow gorge, the presence of
thc mad torrent below eould only he de
ll icse pigments with southern tribes for
corn and even for the shells oi Mexico.
Thc next bit ott journey, some IS
idles, was through the VermilKon pass
-still along ths road. Many writers
have essayed the description of moon-
lain roads—long pine avenues with tbeir
lights and shadows; on either side snow
capped peaks flung against the sky,
these flanked by high foot hills topped
villi burnt forests, where dead pines
luiiTing and intertwining their dead
branches form a great drape of grey
lace. Ahove and below are streams-
tumbling torrents—water falls—springs
that bubble from the rocky sides and
send 'their silver streams to swell the
volume of turbulent creek. And lingering over all is the odor of the pines
ind always the inspiration of Nature'-
sublimest creaAons — the mountains
At Vermillion crossing for the first
time tbe party left the road, for it is
in this vicinity that the last bit Is bemg
completed, some seven miles.
Resuming tbe journey mart day, the
pack train following the most direct
route forded and d forded the tortous
river, then climbed up some hundreds of
feet and was once i gam on the road.
Here the traveller realized just what an
amazing piece of engineering building Ihis highway was.

to deposits of the soluble ox-' 1 - r,f

long before thc advent of the white
'man used these colorings to decorate
their tepees witb wotrd designs and
