To ascertain the arrpreoiation of
the different varieties of apples in
Qreat Britain, J. Forsyth Smith,
Dominion fruit commissioner, made
up a questionaire and gave it to
iome seventy of tbe wholesale buyers of boxed apples in the United
Kingdom, asking them to mark op
of the damage  done  by the >site each„ variety 0D tbe  list tbp

ble this week. However,
Gene-ial Road Foreman Donaldson has a crew of men
repairing and clearing the
road, and he states that it
will again be fit for traffic by
the beginning of next  week.
Dr. Donaldson, who was
up in that district at the time,
says that the cloudburst was
heralded by the roar and
thunder of a cyclone, and as
it advanced trees, rocks and
boulders came down the
mountain-side and covered
the road, and from the road
the debris slid down into the
river, in many places carrying the roadbed with it and
causing huge washouts. In
some places the debris nearly
filled the river from bank to
bank. All the small bridges
and culverts that had been
replaced after the forest fire
were washed out.
Luckily no loss of human
life has been reported, and as
far as known very little, if
any, damage was doue to
ranch property, although
some sections of the lowlands
were badly flooded.
It is said that the deluge
opened up a few promising
mineral prospects on the
North Fork wagon road.
their judgment it nas either, (1) a
popular variety in strong demand:
(2) a less popular variety but still
acceptable; (3) a variety of whicb
limited quantities only should be
shipped; (4) *\ definitely unacceptable variety.
Tbe following varieties were
placed iu Class 1 by a majority of
votes: Jonathan, Newtown, Cox,
Winesap, Spy, Mcintosh, Spifsten-
be g, Winter Banana. The Jobna-
than received the best vote of all,
68 dealers placing it in Class 1 and
three in Class ii. The Newtown was
next with 00 votes for Clnss 1 an*(i
for Class 2. Then followed Cox with
60 for Class 1 and 6 for Class 2,
Winesap with 49 for Class 1 and Id
for Class 2, Spy with 46 for Class 1
nnd 18 for class 2, Mcintosh with
43 for Class 1, 17 for Class 2, 7 for
Class 3 and 2 for Class 4; Spitzenberg witb 39 forCiass 1, 25 for Clnss

Class 4, and Winter Banana witb
20 votes for Class 1, 19 for Class 2,
11 for Class 3 and 8 for Class 4.
The above, of course, does not indicate relative values of the different
varieties on the market, The order
of value would probably be as follows: Cox, Newtown, Winesap,
Jonathan, Spitzenberg, Wealthy.

The following varieties were placed in Class 2 by a majority of votes:

Accident While Bathing
With Companions
As They Used to Tell It
Here is .< Canadian bear story re«
printed in tbe London Times of
1869. The writer was evidently not
very well up in our geography, but
his imagination wa» well developed:
We have just received intelligence
of another terrible bear catastrophe
in our colony of Canada. The Bad
affair occurred iu a small village
called Toronro, a few miles from
Winnipeg, on the main line of tbe
Union Pacific railway, and not far
from tbe main station at Hudson's
Bay. It appears tbat a settler named
John Shaw, who was president of
tbe Fire, Water and Gas club, was
on his way home from one of its
meetings, and when almost at his
own door a huge grizzly sprang
upon him from tbe adjoining forest.
Tho snow at the time wss eight feet
deep, and the thermometer 50 below
zero, and the unfortunate man be.
ing without snowshoes and only
armed with an ordinary shotgun,
was unable to cope wiib the savage
beast, and consequently was team
fully mangled. His cries, however,
brought to the spot some half-
breeds who lived in tbe wigwams
near  the  edge  of   tbe bush, and
Mere Sound and Fury
A lank, disconsolate looking person stood on the steps
of the town hall during a political meeting. "Do you
know who's talking in there
now," demanded a stranger
briskly,pausing for a moment
beside him. "Or are you just
going inr
"No, sir; I've just come
out," said the man decidedly.
"Congressman Snifkins is
talking in there."
"What about?" asked the
"Well,"said the man, passing his hand across his forehead in a puzzled manner,
"hedidn't say."
Anna L. McKinnon, aged about
11 years, was drowned in the Kettle river about 5 o'clock yesterday
afternoon wbile bathing with some
companions near G. C: Brown's
property. Tbe body was not re
covered until fully an hour after
tbe accident occurred, as the water
at this place is very deep and it was
difficult to find a good swimmer
and diver.
The unfortunate cbild was a
daughter of D. A. MoKinnon, who
ls now on a trip to tbe coast. It is
not likely that funeral arrangements
will be mado until he returns home.

these, with'the help of the members

Noted Potato Specialist
Visits the Province
The province of British Columbia
has been foreunate in receiving u

Ur. Link bas obtained after several
years.of careful investigation both
in the laboratory and among potato
growers in various parts of the
United States is of the greatest value
to the potato industry in North
During hiB short stay in tbis
province he visited, in company
with Mr. Tice, some of the leading
seed potato growers iu Saanich, Victoria, Comox and Chilliwack.
Ur. Link particularly emphasized
the necessity for careful inspection
in connection with seed potato certification work on account of tbe
wide prevalence of two sorious dis

tbat apliiils transfer tbe virus from
diseased to healthy plants. Here,
where tliere are no aphids on potatoes, it is probable that infection
is carried by otlier insects. Experiments are required to determine
what these insects are.
The necessity for isolation and
early rogueing of certified seed potato plots was emphasized by the
doctor, ln one case in particular
certified seed had been used in three
quarters of the acreage; ordinary
seed in the reBt. The certified sei d
rows were found to be producing
three to four times as many potan
toes. Uiseases, however, were found
to be very prevalent in the ordinary
seed. The result was tbat the certi-
tilied seed rows were becoming infected by insects feeding on the di--
eased plants of lhe ordinary seed. THE   STJN,   GBAND   FORKS,   B. C.

In a recent speech in New York, Signor
Marconi, the man who first made wireless
communication possible, announced that he
has worked out a metho 1 of directing radio
waves 'nstead of permitting tliem to scatter
broadcast. He does it by means of what he
calls "reflectors," the construction of which he
did not clearly explain. He believes that the
invention will be valuable not only in sending
messages in a single direction but in controlling messages that are sent out to sea from
stations on the shore, so that ships can determine their exact distance from land.
Audubon clubs to the Candian schools. On
June 1, 1921, there were 1,676,743 junior
Audubon members. Application for the formation of a club may be made by the teacher
to the president of the National Audubon
Society, New York, as soon as twenty-five
pupils have enrolled their names and paid the
fee of 10 cents, which entitles each to receive
in return the club button and 30 cents' worth
of excellently colored pictures of birds, ac-
compauied by a leaflet giving an account of
the bird's, habits and an outline drawing to be
colored in by the child. A year's subscription
to Bird Lore, the well known ornithological
publication, is also sent to the teacher in
charge. The parks branch has communicated
with the educational departments in the different provinces and with a very few exceptions
they have granted permission to have this
work carried on.

Novelists should bo careful and accurate
observers; but they sometimes make queer
slips. They seem to be especially hazy about
the moon, which they all appreciate for its
esthetic anrl romantic value, but which some
of them understand in no other relation. A
recent novel by one of the cleverest of English women writers describes the heroine as
gazing absorbed at a new moon, "a rim of sil
ver rising slowly through the trees." As the
new moon always rises when the sun is high
in the heavens and can not be seen at all un
til, at sunset, it stands well to the west ofthe
zenith, the heroine had good reason to gaze
with "wide eyes" at the phenomenon she saw.
The greatest obstacle to the proper devel-
ment of technical training in the future is the
lack of close cooperation between the authorities of the great technical educational institutions of this country and the men who have
charge of the great industries for whom the
graduates of these institutions have finally got
to go to woak.   In these days of specialized
business, it is pathetic to see a young person,
who has to make his or her career,  taking  a
purely academic education and expecting to
go out into the world and compete with those
who have specialized in their education.    No
greater service could be performed than to direct the minds of these young persons in some
spcialized channel. Educators are molding the
raw material.  Industrial concerns have the
planls to help produce the finished product.
Both   the educator   and    the  industrialist
want to help the young man and woman along.
The   educator  can be of great help to the
industrialist. On the other   hand, the  men
leading the great industries can be of great
help to the educator, and  between the two
they can be of infinite help.
If lire had been kept oat of Canada's forests

the timber that lias been cut in that  time and
itill have as  much timber standing as when
confederation was consummated.   That is to
sty, thu  annual  growth would have been as
great as tli'; annual cut. But, beaause the annual growth  has not been so great as the an-
nualcut plus the losses through fire, our for-
usts have been deteriorating. The first   thing

In offering to renew the 5£ per cent Canadian government bonds maturing December 1 at
the same rate of interest as is carried by the
maturing bonds, and allowing a bonus of one
month's interest, the minister of finance is
making a material concession to the Canadian
investor, as this rate is higher than Was paid
on the recent Canadian loan in New York.
The high class of the security, which is the
very best that can be offered in Canada, and
the liberal rate of interest should lead to large
investments in these Dominion bonds. Attention is directed to the official advertisement
giving details.
Mr. Vaudervelde, the Belgian socialist just
back from Moscow, says that "the trains are
running, the theaters are well filled, there is
plenty of life in the streets, the shops are
open and perfect order prevails." But "there
arc more soldiers than we ever saw in Berlin,
and more beggars than in Italy." A regime
that multiplies soldiers and beggars is not
the workingman's paradise that the communists proclaimed.

BANFF Indian Day—always the third Monday and
Tuesday in July, was this year the most successful of
its kind ever held in the thirty-two years since its inauguration. An atmosphere of festivity prevailed the two days the
tribe of six hundred Stoney Indians were at Banff, the centre of that most beautiful part of thc Canadian Pacific
No place in the world could have a more perfect setting
for an event such as this, and what could bc more picturesque
than thc Tschantoga Indians "people of thc woods," in
their native costumes amid these Great Hills. There is a
dignity and poise to these people of the woods — calm,
strong faces with character written in every line and seam
of their countenances.
The parade started at nine thirty, and circled around the
main street twice before going to the Banff Springs Hotel.
The streets en route to the hotel were thronged with residents and tourists, and thc steps of thc hotel and court were
densely packed with onlookers, for the distribution of prizes
for thc best native costumes took place here. The Governor
General and Lady Byng, who were on their way west over
thc C.P.R., were among those who viewed the proceedings.
Lady Margaret Boscawen, sister of Baron Byng, presented
the prizes won.
The parade was most spectacular, and combined with the
sports it was well worth travelling hundreds of miles to see.
The chiefs rode at thc head of the procession and looked
picturesque in their costumes of buck-skin and bead work,
and gay headpieces of feathers and ermine. Not only were
thc natives decked out in their gala attire, but the horses also
shared in the pomp and splendour. Their trappings were
made of buckskin, with patterns worked ln beads, thc coloring and designs of superb workmanship. Skins were also
used, and trappings of bea.I work and ermine. A few
horses were painted in symmetrical designs af various col
ors. Thc higher thc rank of their rider lhe more beautiful
and costly thc trappings.
Thc snorts were held in the encampment grounds on on>
side of which the Ijldians bad erected their picturesque
wigwams. .* Thc grand stand was packed and thousands
were present, and never in the history of Banff was this
event so well attended. Cars were lined up in all direr
tions, and hundreds of tourists, and many residents wen
on horse-back, which added to the varied scene.
Tlie sports consisted nf races of various kinds; two mile,
one mile and.half mile dash. There was wrestling oi,
horseback, bow and arrow contest, pitching  tepee and a

race. Thc Governor General, Lady Byng and party attended, and later left for Lake I-ouise. The cowboy race
was the most spectacular. There was a pole at each end of
the course, which the horses had to go around, and as they
appeared to get there almost simultaneously, it was a wild
jumble of horses and riders apparently on top of one another.
Thc setting for this scene was perfect. Hills well timbered with dark spruce and pine, and behind tliem the mountains in a dull grey haze—due to the distant forest fires.
Against this setting thc tepees stood, white with the top a
cinnamon brown, smoked from camp fires within. Many
were of brilliant colors, beautifying thc encampment
grounds still further. The excitement of the afternoon
nvcr, the Indian families returned to their own quarters, and
the little played on the green grass in front of their tepees.
Some of the men and women reclined on sfcins or blankets
iu thc cool of the early evening. Squaws went to the brook
for water, others eame from tbe woods with arm fills of
faggots, and soon fires were started for supper, and their
flames leapt into the air, adding more color to this already
brilliant scene. c-
Thc Indian Day Committee are to be congratulated on
living Canada tbis annual event, which is so typical of
primal days, and the beauty of which is in keeping with
these great hills which were theirs till the white man came.
Many of the officials of the day were Indian Chiefs, wbo
very efficiently did their share toward making Indian Day
the success it undoubtedly proved to be.
Developing Canada's Oriental Trade
(With its fleet of fast-moving, luxuriously fitted steamers, trans-continental
express train services, and chain of palatial hotels, the Canadian Pacific Company have laid an easy highway around
the world, and .another link between
West and East has been established by
the magnificent new steamer "Empress
of Australia,' which recently joined the
trans Pacific service from Vancouver to
Yokohama, Kobe, Nagasaki, Shanghai,
Manila and Hong-Kong.
The "Empress of Russia" and "Empress of Asia" are already well known
on the Pacific Ocean, and accommodation on these steamers has always been
difficult to obtain owing to their popularity. With the addition of the still
larger steamers, "Empress of Canada"
and 'Empress of Australia," sailings
from Vancouver will now be so frequent as to provide in conjunction with
the Canadian Pacific Atlantic Empresses a fortnightly through service
from Europe. It is now recognized
that the Canadian Pacific route to the
Orient is quite as easy for the traveller
as the all-sea routes, and is, of course,
much shorter. Yokohama is reached
from Britain in less than three weeks,
and Hong Kong in four weeks.
The "Empress of Australia" is the
biggest'commercial vessel to pass
through the Panama Canal. The vessel Is 588    feet in length, 75 feet in
fcteadth, 46 f ett 3 inches in depth to up
per deck, and of about* ilmHH) tons
gross. She Is of the shelter deck type,
with a continuous bridge above, extending the full length of the ship, and thc
lower and upper promenade decks tally
half the length. She has a straight
stem, an elliptical stern, three funnels,
and two masts, and has a very beautiful
appearance. She has splendid accommodation for 400 first class, 165 second class, 360 third class, and 670
Asiatic steerage passengers, and a
crew of about 520. The first class dining saloon (with accommodation for
37Q sitters), the flrtt class ladies'
room, the first class smoke room, and
the first class writing room are all decorated in the Louis XVI. style; the first
class lounge in the Empire style, and
thc swimming bath in the Pompeilan
style, while there are alto a first class
card room, a verandah cafe, a children's room, an electric bam, a splendid
entrance hall and ladies'and gentlemen's
hairdressing rooms — these and all the
staterooms being furnished and decorated in the most comfortable and tasteful manner. The vessel Is propelled by
two sets of Curtis-Parsons turbines,
driving twin screws through Fottinger
hydraulic transformer gear, indicating
about 18,000 s.h.p., and giving the vessel
a service speed of 17 knots. Steam is
supplied by 14 water tube boilers each
fitted with three furnaces, and having a
working pressure of 240 Ibt. The vessel is an oil burner. t
Since  1886 tht    Canadian    Pacific
Railway and thf Canadian
Steamships have been making record
after record on tht Pacific and are now
many miles in the had of other steamship and transforation cower hi opes*
ating on tht Pacific. «
The year 1887 saw tbe establishment
of a regular trans-Padfic service, with
thret chartered steamships, the Batavia,
the Parthla, and tht Abyssinia. The
letter's first outbound cargo consisted
of 40 tons of freight Three years
later, in July, 1890, the Canadian Pacific concluded a contract with tht British Government providing ior a small
subsidy of «60,000 a year, with tha
services of three twin-screw steamships
between Vancouver, Japan, and China.
To fulfil the terms of this contract, tha
Empress of India, the Empress of
China, and the Empress of Japan were
specially built. These steamers wert
of about six thousand tons each, dross
register, and began their work in 1891.
With the arrival of the Empress of
Australia, the company inaugurates a
service whereby a steamer will leave
Vancouver every two weeks for the

A local passenger service, ht
added, would be installed there foi

miles over which no service it being
given in the broken link.
Eighteen miles of this distance

Hamilton. — Announcement wat
made recently by Jas. Lahey, manager of the local office of the C.P.R.
Telegraph Co., that in future, tha
head office here will remain open all
night for the transmission and receiving of messages. Telegraph
offices are considered the business
and industrial barometers of any
community, so that it is significant
that an all-night service hat bean
found necessary.
"It has been evident to us for
aome time that business conditions
were rapidly returning to normal,"
said Mr. Lahey. "There has been a
noticeable increase in the volume of
business in our office."
Historic Lies
Two of the most famous lies relate
to the last hours of Nelson. Kvory-
one knows that the real signal at Trafalgar which he ordered was, ''Nelson
expects every man to do his dnty."
The   other   lie is   about the coat he
wore on his quarter deck. He is reported to have silenced tho iinpor
tunity of hia ollicers, entreating him
to conceal the stars on his breast, by
saying, "In honor I gained them,
and in honor I will die with them."
This is great style, but it is untrue
Dr. Arnold heard the facts from Sir
Thomas Hardy. Nelson wore on  the
day of battle the same coat he had
worn for weeks, having the Order of the
Bath embroidered upon it, and when
his friends expressed somo apprehension of the badge, he answered that
he was aware of tho danger, but that
t was "too late then to shift his coat."
The fabricated saying ib magnificent;
why destroy it?
A "Careful Crossing" campaign
is now going on in the United
States. The public are advised to
stop, look and listen at railroad
crossings. An article by J. W.
Ludden in St. Paul Pioneer Pratt
"Virtually all accidents at grade
crossings could be averted if tht
public using the highways would exercise reasonable care, the engineers contend.
"The railroads are doing all they
can to prevent these accidents. Thty
believe that co-operation of the public is necessary.
"Automobiles were involved in It
pe. cent of the 1920 crossing accidents; 1,791 persona were killed,
6,077 were injured, of whom 116
died  subsequently."
While deaths from railway crossing accidents in Canada are not so
numerous as in the United States
there have been too many. Some
auto drivers thinking they can beat
a train to a crossing beat it to
Montreal. — Not only does the
Canadian Pacific Kailway recognise
acts of bravery by its own employees, but it acknowledges them
when performed by those outside its
service. This was shown when the
Canadian Pacific recently applied to
the Canadian Royal Humane Society
for recognition for Samuel J. Dixon,
of Pendleton, Ontario, for his gallantry in saving Miss Amelia Boud-
reault, of St. Pauscal, Ontario, from
serious injury or probable death.
At the suggestion of Mr. A. D.
MacTier, vice-president, C.P.R., several affidavits from witnesses of the
incident and others bearing on the
coirage and presence of mind displayed by Mr. Dixon were supplied
to the Royal Humane Society, and
as a result the society has decided
to grant a medil for bravery to him.
The incident happened at 6.80 p.m.
on February lltli last, when Miss
Boudreault, who was lute for the
train, run after it as it was leaving
Pendleton station, und in attempting
to board it fell between the end of
the platform und the train wheels.
Affidavits of several witnesses pay
a tribute to tbe pluck displayed by
Mr. Dixon. They show that as he
was walking on the platform he noticed the young lady clinging to ths
bars of a couch. Ji;st aa he reached
her she released her hold and fell,
her head striking the oil waste box
of tho car truck. This swung hor
around with her feel on tha rail.
Part of the train hit her, throwing
her head und shoulders across the
rail. At this instant Mr. Dixon grabbed her and pulled her clear of the
moving train wheels. While holding
her until thc train passed out, Mr.
Dixon himself was hit on the head
by a coach step. The injured woman
was taken to the C.P.R. agcnt'B residence and attended by the local
doctor. She recovered seon afterwards, and admitted that there was
no one to blame for the occurrenca
hut herself. -**-*-*  '—'—

Gunning   Rather    Than
An Englishman who had
once seen an Amarican fox
running before a hound wrote
that the American fox is much
slower than its English cousin
As a matter of fact, the Englishman's assertion, which by
the way appeared in an encyclopedia, is really a tribute
to the superior cunning of
the American fox. Reynard,
says Charles D. Stewart in
the Atlantic Monthly, could
have run a good deal faster
had he thought it wise to do
A fox surprised by a hound
in a small patch of woods will
run across the open at astonishing speed.    Then he  not
only   will slow up  but may
even sit down on  some con-
venieut elevation   and   look
back.   He  keeps    his    wits
about    him;    he    wants   to
know    what    is   going  on.
Whenthehonnd  has  struck
his stride  the fox  will soon
gauge it and lead him a chase.
Anyone  who sees  the chase
and knows that the honnd is
slow becomes an admirer of
the witty Reynard and will
be likely to say  that the fox
is running slowly just to tease
tha dog.   Indeed, many  entertaining writers have said
so; but a veteran hunter would
not so interpret  the action of  tbe
fox.    He well knows that when a
fox gets half a mile or so ahead  of
him nnd skulks al mg at  a  sot distance out of sight, it is not doing  it
to tease him.  The fox is not so human as lhat. The plain fact is that
the fox will not retreat before a dog
any faster than the dog drives  him.
That is because it is naturally cun
