made on behalf of tbe Cooperative
Growers by Gordon Lindsay, of
Tunbridge & Colquhoun.

Cooperative, however, toenfoice the

Victoria, November 9.—It is a
simple matter to criticize expenditure upon public works when such
works are in an unfinished state and
present a spectacle of only moder te
production to the uninitiated. But
when t is understood tbat already
in tbe provincial government area
of irrigated lands in the South
Okanagan! 150 net profit per acre is
the returns from the growing of
oautaloups, it will be observed bow
very dangerous it is to jump at cou>
elusions instead of waiting until a
practical demonstration bas proved
the merit or demerit of ao undertaking of any public nature.
According to an announcement
just made by Hon. T D. Pattullo,
minister of lands, the cost of growing cantaloups in tbe area above
referred to i-i $50 per acre. This
figure includes the cost of seed,
ploughing, cultivating, irrigating,
picking, water tax, aud also tbe in-
teraat on deferred payments on the
land. Detailed statistics in respect
to tbis particular enterprise show
tbat someibiog like 200 cases of
cantaloups per acre, at $1 per case,
or $200 per acre, constitute tbe return in bulk. From this already
hae been deduc ed tbe cost of cases,
packiug, freight, and all handling
charges. In some cases, however,
crops have reached 300 cases to the
acre, according to reliable information wbich has been furnished to
Mr. Pattullo.

by tbe premier's announcement that
a special audit is to be made of all
railway accounts.
Mr. Bowser's remarks duriug tbe
week were largely confiied to his
old liue of destructive criticism of
tbe administration. No definite
charges were made by him, excepting that the government was "corss
rupt, spendthrift in its way," and
tbe like. On the other band, Premier
Oliver bas shown definitely that his
administration is making great
headway despite beavy obstacles.
Hon. T. D. Pattullo, minister of
lands, makes the definite statement tbat there will be no
change in the regulations regarding
the exportation of logs. Tbere will
be no further embargo, ae reported.
Tbe minister contends that tbe lumbar industry in this province is in
splendid condition; tbat very little
manufactured timbei is being exported and what is going out in that
form is of minor quaiity.
According of tbe sixth annual report of the workmen's compensation
board, industrial conditions through

proved greatly during the past year.
At the beginning of the year 6393
industrial establisbmenrs were in
operation. Tbis number increased to
6525 at tbe end of tbe year, ao in
crease of 131. There was a corresponding payroll increase of $4,000, •

industrial establishments in the

Notes, Notions and Notables
||Alberta wont, vory "wet" last Monday.
The electors of the prairie province have-
given the government a huge and very difficult task to perform. We think it will be
found that the only way in which the law can
be eufbroed in Lhe license 1 beer joints to b.
operated in connection with government control, will be for the government to fnrnish
aa incorruptible official with each license
issued. At this distance it looks as if Alberta
had voted forthe open bar instead of government control.
One  of the unit  thrilling an 1 instructive
stories written in recent years is contained in
the official report of Captain  S. Robinson, R.
N.R , commander of the Cauadian Pacific S.S.
Empress of Australia, on the .Japanese earthquake, the fire and  subsequent  relief operations, issued in booklet form by the flanadian
Pacific Steamships Limited.    In the vernacular of the  bridge,  Captain Robinson   relates
the incidents of the disaster as  they were
brought to his notice, from uoon of Saturday,
September 1, when, as his ship was preparing
to leave the dock  at Yokohama,  the first
earthquake took place,   until  September  12,
when, after encountering innumerable difficul
ties—a fouled propellor, a sea of  burning  oil
—and serving as a hospital and relief ship for
the earthquake  sufferers,  the  Australia left
the stricken Orient for Vancouver.   Stories of
Captain Robinson's heroism, outstanding sea
manship with which lie upheld the  traditions
of the royal navy  reserve, and consideration
for the suffering ones at great personal  cost
and effort, have been accorded a little  of  the
publicity whioh is their due, but the captain's
report is modest in the extreme, and although
one can glean from it some of the great problems which presented themselves to him, the
"hero of the disaster" reports only the good
works executed by those identified with relief
work. It is teerefore tittisig that the company
should include in the booklet letters addressed
to the captain by the refugees, passengers  on
the ship and  the  American  relief committee
in recognition and appreciation of his skilful
handling of the many critical situations which
presented themselves.    The report is an  historical document, recording the greatest  natural disaster known  to man, and certainly
no library will be complete without a copy of

its breakages. Forty per cent were shown to
be due to some direct cause; a girl had slipped,
or some other unavoidable accident had occurred. Sixty per cent were due to "causes
unknow;," until the doctor suggested that
violent irritation was responsible for tempor
ary "forgetfulness." The brain was taken off
its job, and slipped a cog, and in the second's
slip sixty per cent of the breakages occurred.
When the unconscious irritation—a vicious
temperature or a bad light—thousands of
pounds a year were saved.
Kissing is considered an unhealthy practice
by somo people. A few years ago the physicians of Milwaukee prepared a bill for the
absolute suppression of kissing.on the ground
that the practice was hygienically dangerous.
The bill did not become law or it would have
made Milwaukee mojce famous. But such laws
existed in Puritan New Englnnd. In 1656
Captain Kemble, of Boston, was "set for two
hours in the public stocks for his 'lewd and
unseemly behaviour,' which consisted in 'kissing his wife publiquely on the Sabbath day,
upon the doorstep of his house,' when he had
just returned from an absence of three years."
Twelve yeats later ".Jonathan and Susannah
Smith were each fined five shillings and costs
for smiling on the Lord's day." The smile, it
would appear, was only less heinous than the
kiss itself.
Brazil raises 132 billion cups of coffee yearly. In May coffee trees are covered with red
berries which contrast beautifully with the
glossy green leaves, glowing like rubies in
their dark setting. The berries are about the
size of a cranberry, and of the same color.
Under the outer husk of red is a sweetish
pulp, and within that, the hard berry of commerce. The berries, which at first are green,
turn red and finally dark when they are ripe,
until almost black. When they are ripe the
berries are shakeu off the trees, then gathered
from the ground by other workers, and poured
by the ton into a vast coffee mill which, how
ever, does not grind them, but cracks the hull.
This is blown away by a strong current of
air, while the imprisoned berries drop to the
bottom and are then sorted automatically by
passing over a perforated screen. Then, by
another set of machinery, these sorted berries
are put into bags each of which holds 132
ponnds. These are sent by rail to the port.
Brazil has almost a monopoly of the world's
coffee trade.

What can modern science do to prevent
baldness' Little yet. In some recent experiments four parts of the body were closely
shaved—the armpit, a spot just back of the
crown of the head, the outer side ofthe forearm, and the leg just below the kuee—and
the weekly rate of growth was determined
by measuring hair subsequently pulled from
these 'parts. Growth varied, being slow on
arms and legs, where hairs du not fall out.
The results tend to disprove some well established beliefs, and show that hair growth is
little, if any, stimulated Oy shaving, by sunburn, or by such applications  as petrolatum,

Trees live longer than humans; but a baby
human has more chance of life than a baby
tree. A forest at maturity contains about 5
per of the trees that started life there. The
percentage of human beings living from ten to
fifty is much greater than in the case of trees.
About 95 per cent of trees die before they are
eighty years old, while only 87 per cent of
persons die reaching that age. There are exceptional trees which live to an amazing age.
The sequoia tree, for instance, sometimes attains the age of 4000 years; so also does the
cypress. At twenty years of age a spruce tree
requires about four square feet of space; at
forty it will require 34 feet; at sixty years 70
feet; and at 100 years about 150 feet. Pine
trees need at least 15 per cent moro light
space than spruce trees.

"Wonderful indeed is the power of
tlio voice "—Cieero.
The power of the voice is the success
ofthe telephone. It was in the endeavor
to transmit sound that the telephone was
invented, and the greatfactor of its de
velopmenl into an article of very common
use is that direct conversation may be
carried on.
Because it enables one's personality to
be sent is the reason that the telephone
promotes friendships and intimacy, and
brings about closer relations between
those in business. The pleasure of hearing the voice you know makes long distance the casual practice of every one.

The Objects of this Institution, for which Incorporation was recently ob*
tained, are: "To provide a Home and Refuge for Baby and 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 such service, perish every year; and to return these little ones to their parents, at
sohool age with normal, healthy bodies and sound minds."
This is a large and greatly needed Child Welfare Service. Careful enquiry
at bhe Government 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 flrst home was opened in New York City; they have now homes
in 13 States, all doing excellent work. In England, some time ago, Sir Ar-
"(hur Pearson organized "Sunshine House," Chorley Wood, for Blind Babies,
and he claims that it is the only oue iu the British Empire. Let us have the
SECOND in Canada. To reach this worthy end money is urgently required.
Fifty Thouaand Dollars is the present objective of the Boa.id. While the
Home is to be located in Ottawa it will tako 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.

Quebec, the Old World Province
1. Tbe Caliche, a means of conveyance much favoured by visitors* to Quebec
2. An old brick oven, the like of which wtss used Ib France four centuries oko.
3. Chateau Frontenac. Quebec, the most modern hostelry on the continent, from u glorious height looks down
is old Quebec and on the curly bnttle fields.
4. Ancient and modern.   I'he little cannon captured  by thc British nt Bunker Hill, rests   near   the   Quebec
iladel by the side of a bowltscr whieh  fell to the   Canadians In the Greut War.
5   Though their farms are modern, some farmers still use the ox as beast of burden ln the back country.
THESE are just a few pictures taken in Quebec. It is
not without reason that this province is becoming the
.ourist resort of the continent, for here is a country of
utmost fascination and intrigue. Quebec has an atmosphere all its own and, if it can be Baid, more of an old-
world atmosphere than has the old-world of today.
Quebec is the eighteenth century keeping pace with the
twentieth, yet retaining its identity.
One stops at little wayside shrines. The wooden
cross, the patron saint in effigy, the nurtured flowers, the
woman at her distaff, the white-walled houses close at
hand transport you to the distant land from whence the
original settlers came. Yet, over there, beyond that
little hedge or cedar fence the farmer gathers in hia
crop with up-to-date machinery, and stores it in a modern
bam. Behind, the hum of the telegraph wire reminds
you that you are not living In a by-gone day and, if that
Is not enough, through the not too distant fields, a huge
train thunders.
Near the white walls the lady**of the house draws
water from the old-fashioned well, and bakes her bread
In an old brick oven, tiie like of which was used by her
ancestors in France four centuries ago. She spins her
own wool and shares with her husband a faith, which
though not old-fashioned, is almost as old as the Christian
•ra. A kindly hospitable soul is she, nor is she always
backward in learning, for she probably attended the
convent ot the Ursulines at Quebec, or la petite ecole at
Louisevllle. And her husband—He may be content
to wear the homespun, to sit around the Are, or on the
threshold at night, to smoke his "Rouge Quesnel" and to
drive five miles to church early on all holidays in his
buggy or in the straw lined cart that Is used about the
farm, but he "knows his letters" and, better still, he
knows how to farm.
The Quebec farm ia usually up-to-date. Your
"habitant' gets all that can be got from the soil, and if
wu ait with him and talk you will see that he gets the
fullness of life too. Give him the simple pleasures. He ia
happy if he can re-tell the story of the bi^ moose he shot
by "Lac Saint Pierre" and the bear. He is some trapper
too, "for sure I catch him lots of skin, me!"
The "old man," the "old woman" and that large, very
large family, are content as seldom people are, and rightly
so, for theirs is a rich heritage, and beautiful. The mighty
St. Lawrence and its thousand tributaries, the glorious
Laurentians, with their wooded slopes, the forests, lakea
and myriad streams give them a country almost unexcelled for beauty. Game and fish abound as has been
discovered by sportsmen from outside. Moose, trout,
maskinonge, the big black bass, bear, deer and caribou.
From a historians point of view Quebec la the hunting
ground of the continent. Quebec city la one hug*
souvenir of the early days of Canadian settlement. Lost
and re-captured several times her old Walls still bear the
marks of storm, and the old cannons still guard the city
and the approaches to the citadel.
The history of Quebec is the history of Canada, priest,
soldier and pioneer settler each having played a glorious
part in the making of it. With the fair Dominion aa a
lasting memorial to their valor and courage, Quebec links
them with the present day; their faith, piety, and tha
work they commenced are being preserved and carried
on by the present generation. The relics of their day
scattered here and there, and on almost every street, look
down or out upon the most modern Improvements of
the age, the railways, and the huge Canadian Pacific
and other steamships at the docks, but lose not their
identity, and in the case of buildings and public places,
their charm and interest.
All through Quebec province, and In the most unexpected places one comes across historic links with the
past. Like her people Quebec is quiet, peaceful, and does
not crave the limelight, but Quebec ls not and cannot
be overlooked. It ia an old world, full oi charm, withta
the new.
Irrigation in Southern Alberta
(1) Kumiuuiii Ham, built in the lY-rllir days by the
I unadian Peelfk* Railway for Irrigation purposes.
(i) An IrrlgnfliMi flume. 18) This farmer does not
depend on rains for his moisture* (4) Public Gardens,
l/ethhsidge, Alta.
1HAD been told to expect a transformation; that
new order ot things was being born ln Southern
Alberta; that a new system of farming was taking the
place Of the old. I was told that the days of "scratching
ln" and of "soil mining" were gone days. Nevertheless,
I was not prepared for what I saw.
Fifteen years before, I had travelled through this
country and had seen only a few scattered farmsteads
set out on the "bald-headed" prairie, four square to all
the winds that blew. There were no trees, only a
stretching expanse of prairie that merged into white-
topped mountains on the west and meeting the sky on
the east in an unbroken horizon. A few homesteaders
were straggling ln. Old cattlemen, trying to save their
great range, were spreading stories that farming could
never be a success ln Southern Alberta.
But the homesteaders came. Then later the big
farmers arrived with their tractors and ushered in the
era of the thousand acre wheat i'anch. A series of "trot
yeara" made Southern Alberta famous. Nowhere had
sueh crops ever previously been heard of. The NobU
Foundation, one of the largest farming corporations ln
the world, brought in a crop of wheat from one thonsand
acrea that threshed 54,000 bushels! The country was
thlek with elevators. In 1916 and 1916, Southern Alberta reached the peak of prosperity. A series of unproductive yearn followed when rainfall waa scant.
Some farms were abandoned, bnt, mostly, men held on,
buoyed up by the wonder harvests of other years.
The problem waa purely one of moisture, and the
GovssrnmenU of the Dominion and the Province aet
about to study lt The soil waa of, the greatest fertility, the climate was right Son-sAv to supplement
Hu a-sterel raaftsl -m wanted.   VMuadla* Pas-ate
Railway and other corporations had already developed
tracts of laid by Irrigation. It was no experiment, and
so a constructive policy of irrigation was commenced
hacked by both Governments.
It is in the train of irrigation that the new order
of things ls coming in Southern Alberta. Today as you
drive over the prairie, through the irrigated tracts ot
Strathmore and Brooks, south through tbe Bew Rlvei
Project and on into Taber and Lethbridge, the flatness-
is broken on m sides by farmsteads that nestle amon--
trees—young trees growing taller and taller every year.
Hedges are growing where once waa barbed wire.
Shrubbery is luxuriant. In the background are fields of
Alfalfa, Indian Corn aad Wheat. Dairy cowa are seen
on green pastures. The farms are small, but they are
real (arms, and the homes are smiling homes of contented people. There ls no "scratching to" or "sail
mining." These are permanent homes on the threshold
of a future bright with promise.
In the City of Lethbridge, around whieh most of the
new , Irrigation development, ls proceeding, are round
tree-Hned streets, beautiful homes set In hedfe enclosed
lawns, and one of the finest little parka that Canada
can beaat. The city has been thoughtfully planned and
symbolises ln its setting the spirit of a people pledged
to permanency.
For tbese who knew Southern Alberta in Ita Infancy,
there is a pleasant surprise waiting. Wherever irrtga-

The world's record for grain trains
was shattered by the Canadian Pacific Railway on October 5th, with
a monster train of 126 car loads of
wheat, aver a mile long, which operated between Steughton and Areola.
The contents of the cars, 185,000
bushels, weighed 5,866 tone.
All fram loading records in Alberta were completely smashed by
the Canadian Pacific on October 10th
when the Company loaded 753 cars,
representing at least 1,0GF.,200 bushels. If these cava were placed together they would make up a freight
train about six miles in length, and
a baker's doxen of these trains would
extend from Calgary to Banff, a distance ef 8i miles.
A record in western raMrsed construction waa established en the
Canadian Paeillc Lanigan-Melfort
line recently, when tha last mile of
track betwtMn Lanigan and Pleasant-
dale was completed in ene day. D.
A. Livingstone, engineer in charge,
reports that seventy per cent of his
crew of 26 were British harvesters.
Federal and Provincial Departments ef Agriculture co-operated in
the purchase m the British Isles of
a large stock ef horses, twine and
sheep, including sheep owned by His
Majesty the King, which arrived
here recently. This ia the second
Ehipment of cattle to Canada through
the co-operation of the agricultural
departmental with sheep and swine
breeders  throughout  the  Dominion.
T. K. Doherty, the Canadian Commissioner in the International Institute of Agriculture, estimates Canada's exportable wheat surplus this
year at 300 million bushels, as
against 150 millions from the United
States, 110 from Argentina, 50 from
Australia, and 15 from Russia. Canada, in fact, may be expected te
supply nearly half the wheat exports of the whole world—300 out of
675 million bushels.
E. W. Beatty, K.C, President of
tbe Canadian Pacific Railway, speaking at important centres on his recent extensive tour through the
Cr.nadian West, sounded a nete of
optimism, declaring that the general improvement in Canadian business conditions rendered an accompanying growing pessimism entirely unjustifiable. Stressing the
need for a vigorous, intensive immigration polk-y by the government, he put forward as suggestions
thit the department of immigration
nnd colonization should issue a general invitation through Great Britain,
the United States and certain European c.v.-ntrles, for settlers, and
that greater advantage should be
taken nf the favorub'e policies towards emigration to Canada adopted
by the coveraroents of Great Britain
and other countries.
Most extraordinary yields of grain
are reported froni the Provincial
School "of Agriculture at Olds, Alberta. On a one-acre patch 105 11
bushels of Marquis wheat were
threshed, which is believed to be a
record for this crop, exceeding the
82 bushel yield of Seager Wheeler,
which was previously considered unsurpassable. From an acre seeded te
oats, 205 bushels were threshed.
Barley similarly yielded exceptionally. On a field ef 27 aeres an average of 70 bushels te the aere waa
secured, whilst on another, lt asree
at s different variety, a yield of M
