Shortly before 3 o'clock on Wednesday mornitifr-safe cracksmen blew
into Greenwood and attempted to
dynamite the vault in the Bank of
Montreal, we learn from the Greenwood L»dge. Six distinct and loud
reports at about five-minu|e intervals were heard by those living in
the neghbothood of- the bank, and
many peop e were aroused from
tbeir slumbers. The cracksmen had
previously cut the 200 wire cabbie
and the long distance wires leading
to tbe telephoo.' office; alao cut the
telegraph wires on both sides of the
C.P.K. station, and it was impossible to notify the police of
wbat was going ou. Tbey also broke

Meyer, wbo lives opposite tbe bank,
on aearing a noise, started to come
out, but a guard at tbe corner tired
at bim, breaking windows at the
rear of his store and shattering tbe
woodwork inside. Entry was made
by forcing tbe rear door, and tbe
only tool left was a heavy bar with
"C.P.R." stamped on it
It is supposed tbat tbere was a
gang of five or six, two working in
the bank and tbe remainder on
guard. Although tbey dynamited
tbe vault several limes tbey tailed
to break open lbe door and left

pays special attention to tbe following
list of rules as winter approaches
need not join the army of' snifflers."
These rules bave been Issued by Dr.
F. T. Underbill, M.H.O. of Vancouver and printed in the Sun of
tbat city.
Avoid   needless crowding; influ
enza is a crowd disease.
Souther your cough and sneeaes;
others do not want the germs whicb
you would throw away.
Your nose, not your mouth, was
made to breathe through; get the
habit-
Remember tho three "Cs"—a
clean moutb, clean skin and clean
clothes.
Open tbe windows always—at
home, at nigbt, at the office when
practicable.
Your fate may be in your own
hands; wash them beiore eating.
Don't use a napkin, towel, spoon,
fsrk, glass or cup wbicb has been
used by another person.
Don't kiss.
Don't get your feet wet.
Don't spit.
Don't let your children out late
at night in tbe damp air.
Don't use ano her person's band
kerchief.
Avoid   rowded assemblies.
Gargle tbroat several times a day
with formolid, listerine or some
other antiseptic solution.
Eat heartily.
Sleep well.
Keep tbe bowels regular.
Drink lots of water.
Take abundance of fresh air.
Do not worry.

6. Head and obey tbe warning
signs; tbey are not put up as orna-

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 beseen
from both directions; otherwise you
may stop longer than you anticipate.
9. Speeding around corners, is a
straight route to the hospital. Don't

day the jury will call it manslaughter.
10. Use discretion. The fact tnat

bring anybody back to life, least of
all yourself.

"Mr. Beatty talks of business ad«
administration and compares govn
Jrnments with private enterprises,"
added Dr. MacLean. "That is exactly tbe way tbis government conducts the affairs of the province. No
money bas been spent excepting
upon productive enterprises.and tbe
proof of our government's businesslike methods is shown wben I state
that up to tbe eud of 1922 British
Columbia had a larger total in sinking funds than all the rest of the
provinces of Canada combined.
Sinking funds provide forthe taking
care of obligations, and surely that
statement shows that no stone has'
been left unturned to protect the
public."
The minister maintained that tbe
final test of the stability of a province or of a business was tbe finan
eial standing of either. In tbis regard, he pointed out, British Columbia bonds sold for a higher price
in the world markets than that ob-
taiued by any other province.

tbe public debt of British Columbia
has increased 239 per cent since

F
UNITING GOLONNIES
FOR WINTER SEASON
One of the essential factors for
successful wintering of bees is to
bave the colonies well filled with
young bees that have done little or
no field work. There should be at
least enougb bees in tbe bive to
cover at least six or sevnn fnll-sized
frames at tbe end of September or
early in October. Any colony witb
less bees tban this should he united
One good strong colony is worth
more than many weak ones.
When uniting colonies two things
must be borne in mind*, first, tbat
flying bees have located themselves
and if their hive is moved tbey will
return to the old location, especially
if it is good flying weather when the
moving is done, and second, that
bees of different colonies are likely
o edgige fn a free for all fighe wb en
brought together in one hive.
When a beekeeper has twi or
more apiaries tbe first difficulty can
be overcome by uniting tbe weak
colonies of one yard to another.
Wbere tbere is only one apiary tbe
uniting is best done during the dull
weather when the bees aie confined
to their hives for several days at a
time.
An eaey method to unite two
colonies without the bees fighting is
to first smoke tbe colonies well and
then to remove the cover aod quilt
from one of them and placing over
lbe frames a single sheet of newspaper. The other colony is then
lifted off its floors-board and placed
over tbe first colony witb tbe paper
between tbem. Tbe bees will gnaw
holes through tbe paper in -a sbort
time and will gradually unite
together tbrough these. If tbere is
brood in botb colonies this can all
be placed in the lower chamber later
oo, and tbe top chamber removed.
It is well to kill one of the queens
just before uniting tbe colonies, tbe
best queea of course being left. If
tbere is no preference for queens
they can both be left and tbe bees
will kill one of tbem,
Another plan of uniting, a d one
in whicb all the queens are saved; is
us follows: During dull weather in
the late fall when the bees have
been confined to their hives for several days remove from each of the
weak colonies five of tbe lightest
combs, shaking tbe bees from tbem
down in front of the bive and pushing tbe other five to one side of the
hive Two or three days later place
a tight fitting division board in the
center of balf of the hives witb tbe
bees on one side end then biing the
combs and bees from tbe other
hives and place on the opposite side
of the division boards, thus bringing together two weak colonies into
one hive. Provision must be made
Tor a double entrance. These col
onies can be fed in the usual man
ner and can be wintered either in
the cellar or outside. By this method a surplus of quesns can be had
in the spring.—C. B. Gooderham,
Dominiou Apiarist.
Special GorreipimiLence of Tlie Sun,
Victoria, October 17—After a
half century of misundeistanding
and legal difficulties a matter between the Dominion and the provincial government of British Col
umbia has been cleaned up satis
faclorily by the government, Under
the terms of an agreement reached
between Hon. Ernest La pointe, fed-
eral minister of m rine and liberies,
and Hon. T. D. Pattullo, minister of
lands, for tbe governnii t.l. ownership of Fafse Creek, English buy and
WeFt Vancouver, outside the First
Narrows, are vested iu the govern
ment of British Columbia. Burrard
Inlet, including the North Arm, it
is agreed, is uuder the ownership ot
the Dominion. Tbe conference
agreed upon the boundaries of certain British Columbia harbors,own ■
ersbip. of wbicb by lhe federal authorities is conceded. Tbese harbors
are: Vancouver, Victoii*, N-w West
minster, Esquimalt, Nanaimo and
Alberni.
Both Hon. Mr Putullu-ind Hon.
Mr. Lapointe stated after the settlement lhat the best interests of the
province sbould be s rved as the result of lhe conference, and in future
tbere will be no complications with
regard to industrial development iu
tbe harbors of tbe coast  province.
Much haB been seid and written
about the freight rates tight waged
by Premier Oliver and the government for the past two years There-
cent announcement by the board of
railway commissioners tbat a further
10 per cent reduction on grain would
became effective immediately is au
evidnce tbat tbe fight has not heen
for nothing. However, the premier
expects that the reduction is only a
forerunuer of others to be announced later. Meanwhile, be shows
that .on the 20,000,000 bushels of
grain shipped west to Vancouver
from August, 1922, the reduced rates
have resulted in a saving of $1,020,-
000, a very substantial sum. The
anticipated reduction, when rates
have been equalized, wi I mean
millions of dollars to tbe people of
British Columbia as well as to tbe
farmers ot tbe prairie provinces. Tbe.
government's expenditures in connection with the freight rates fight
haye been fully justified, even if uo
further gains are made.
In order to save the sockeye

Hon. Ernest Lapointe, federal minister of marine and fisheries, to carry
on negotinlioiis with the American
government and the state of Washington looking to tbe complete oIobh
ing of the Fraser to sockeye fishing
for a period of Iwety or twenty-five
years. Tbe provincial department nf
fisheries has been repeatedly placid
on'record as favoring a confer vati"ii
policy with regard to this important
food industry, but so far action h is
not materialized. This hos been due
largely to the lack of cooperation ou
the part of the United States authorities, but as tbe result of the recent conference between the two
minisiers it is expected that n Balis-

The climbing perch, native of India, has
rudimentary lungs as wells as gills. It can
live a long time out of water, can travel considerable distances overland, and by extending the endg of its gill covers and pressing its
fins against the bark can mount the stem of a
conveniently slanting palm tree at least far
enough to deserve its name.
Notes, Notions and Notables
It is reported from Tokyo that the newer
business buildings in the heart of the city, of
steel construction or of re-enforced concrete,
withstood the rocking of the earthquake exceedingly well. There was more or less damage done to every building within the city,
but the modern structures can easily be put
into condition again. The fire that swept so
large a part of the city would not have been
so disastrous it' the ordinary Japanese houses
were not of such light and combustible material. There was much suffering from hunger for a few days after the earthquake, but
supplies were rushed into the stricken district
as rapidly as possible.
One of the reasons for the excessive cost
of anthracite is declared by the coal eommis
sion to be the speculative dealings of certain
brokers and wholesalers. There are cases
where a shipment of coal has passed through
four hands between mine to retail yard, and
where at each step from 50 cents to several
dollars has been added to the cost. That sort
of thing occurs usually with so called "independent" coal, which in times of scarcity falls
in the hands of speculators. Most of the "company" coal goes regularly to certain wholesalers who deal directly with the retailer. But
speculation and pyramiding of costs does not
account for the prevailing high price of "com
pany" coal. Those who use the coal would be
asked to pay $15 a ton or thereabouts in any
event. It is the coal that costs ,$18 or $20 a
ton that has been the object of unnecessary
handling and extortion. Big royalties on coal
lands and the high cost of railway transportation are responsible for the general level of
coal prices. The recent agreement of the an -
thracite field, which includes an increase in
labor cosjs, of course raises that level.
To have an invention protected in all parts
of the world it is necessary to take out at
least seventy different patents in as many different countries. The estimated cost is $25,-
000.

An incident occurred in Hamilton last Friday, says a Canadian Press dispatch, which
showed the kindly heart of Lloyd George.
Fighting his way through the dense crowd a
little boy about five years of age worked his
way to the place of Lloyd George's car
"Please, mister," he said, breathlessly, ''here's
my picture whon I was a little by. My name
is Lloyd George Bowden; will you take it?'
Visibly touched, Lloyd George reached for
the picture and said: "Bless your little heart,
of course I will take it. I will always cherish
it, too, and shall not forget my little namesake." A pat on the head and the pressure of
two hands followed. Lloyd George smiled ten
derly. Lloyd George Bowden went home—
the happiest boy in this wide world.

British archaeologists have been at work ou
the site of Sparta, and though they have not
yet uncovered anything of first rate historic
importance, they have found a variety of ancient carv-ngs, vases and articles of personal
adornment that show that the Spartans were
not always ofthe austere and harsh character
that distinguished them during the classical
period. Iu the great days of Greece Sparta
was a military power, but it possessed almost
no art. In the earlier ages, following the appearance of the Dorians in Laconia, there^was
a lively and promising art that shows evidences of having been influenced by work from
Cyrene in northern Africa.
WHO'S THE FISH AND WHY?
It costs the prairie farmer 13c a bushel to
thresh his wheat, another 13c a bushel to get
it to the distributing point. What the planting and sacking costs we do not know. We'll
wager this, though, that after all these charges
are paid the whoat farmer will not come off
with a profit of 13c a bushel.
Last season it cost the Okanogan fruit
growers something like a million and a quarter dollars paid in freight and express to get
their fruit to market.
It costs tbem another million and a half to
pack and handle the fruit.
What the fruit growers got we do not know.
But this we do know—the freight was paid,
rhe pickers and packers were paid, the distributors and wholesalers were paid, the retailer was paid—everybody were paid out of
tho proceeds from the fruit before the pro
ducer was paid, and he, in too many cases,
received a red-ink return which meant that,
in addition to having lost his ciop, he had to
pay somebody for having helped him lose it.

At the recent Pan American conference the
delegates of twenty one republics of the new
world approved the proposal to erect a great
"Columbus Light" as a monument to the discoverer and pledged their peoples to share in
the expense and credit of the undertaking.
The favored plan calls for a lighthouse rising
above a stately tomb in which the mortal remains of Christopher Columbus shall rest for
all time. It is generally agreed that the monument shall be built at Santo Domingo, in
Haiti, where Columbus planted his third settlement, the one that took root and lived.

This is a large and graatly needed Child Welfare Service. Careful enquiry
at the Government offices in the verious provinoes 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 Tork City; they havo 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 in the British Empire. Let us have the
SECOND in Canada. To reaoh this worthy end money is urgently required.
Fifty Thousand Dollars is the present objective of the Boaad. 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.

HIS MAJESTY'S MAILS ON CANADIAN PACIFIC
I.—A comfortable corner of tha BaSSSS* Cat.
3.—Another flaw of tba Baatafta Car.
*,—Bxtcrior of ons of tha new Canadian Pacific liall and Baggage Care.
**—Thia la where tha mails are totted.
Almost every day -we rely upon His Majesty's Postal service for the
delivery at certain hours of letters and parcels which are of value
and which would lose their value -were they delivered tardily. Seldom
have we cause to complain of the service rendered In exchange for our few
cents and we have come to expect the efficient regularity of that service
regardless of the natural or economic disturbances which affect other
services. The letter was stamped and placed ln the postal box. It must be
delivered, and with dispatch, rain or shine.
Due to the increasing use of His Majesties Malls, the Canadian Pacific
Railway has found it necessary to add to its rolling stock, twelve new Mail
and Baggage coaches. These, being up-to-date in every respect, provide
every facility for the handling of the mail, and a number of conveniences for
the clerks which the older type of cars could not boast of. The "All Steel"
cars are some of the finest used by Postal authorities In the world, and the
Company is to be congratulated, in that providing every facility for the
Suick handling of postal matter, it has kept an eye to the comfort of the
ierks.
The forward end of the travelling Post Office, for sueh lt is, is used
mainly for storage purposes. On one side, movable iron stanchions separate
the bags destined for the various towns en route, and on the other ls tne gas
stove, for cooking purposes, ice water tank, lavatory, wash basin, and
clothes cupboard — innovations which are greatly commended by the clerks.
The rear end of the mail compartment is the business end. A long
reversible table, running lengthwise, allows the clerk to face either side of
the car in order to sort his parcels into the bags which are supported by
folding racks, and into the boxes conveniently arranged above tne bags for
the accommodation of newspapers, and which can be quickly emptied by
the simple expedient of raising the front. At tha rear end is a table, the full
width of the car, and behind this are the hundreds'of pigeon holes into which
the clerk must distribute the lettera for the various towns, quickly, almost
automatically. At his feet as he stands at his table, the clerk has a tray into
which the letters posted when the train is at a station, drop. These letters he
stamps and distributes with those put on the train at the terminal. Cord with
which to tie the letters into bundles is conveniently at hand, and if some of
the bundles contain registered mall they are placed into the pigeon holes
at one side, over which a wire grating is fitted and locked. Everything is
scrupulously clean.
The baggage and express end of the coaches is also the last word in car
construction. As with the mail section, the doors open in the centre of thc
compartment, one half of which has a solid floor, the other half being fitted
with flsh racks. In addition to the conveniences afforded the mail clerks,
the baggage men have a folding table which fits tightly against the wall
when notin use, and which maybe utilized as a dinning table and — but no!
there is too much business to talk of cards.
The twelve new cars were designed by C. H. Temple, Chief of Motive
Power and Rolling Stock, Canadian Pacific Railway, and were constructed
by the Canada Car and Foundry Company, Ltd., Montreal. They are
designed to carry 80 tons of express matter and 10 tons of mail, a total ot
40 tons} compared with SO tons, the capacity of the old type of coach. The
Company has adhered to the six wheel truck, but heavier journals have
been provided, 6)4 by 10 in place of the 6 by 9 inches. Another feature
of the new coaches is the diaphragm ends. This eliminates the danger of
people "riding blind".
Until more are constructed, the new coaches will operate between
Montreal and Toronto, Montreal and Sault Ste. Marie, Toronto and St
John. N.B.. and Winnipeg, and Edmonton on Canadian Pacilic lines.

A grant of $25,700 to the Salvation Army to aid Canadian emigration work in Great Britain has been
authorized by a Canadian Order in
Council.
According to information received
by the Canadian Pacific Railway at
Winnipeg, sixty-three bushels of
wheat to the acre has been harvested
on the farm of T. M. Ballantyne,
three miles north of Lacombe, Alberta. The wheat graded No. 1
and weighed 64 pounds to the bushel.
Weighing 8,170 pounds, a steer,
said to be tbt largest ever received
in Winnipeg, arrived at the union
stockyards from Wainwright, Alberta. It was sold for $250, the
highest selHng price of any steer
in Winnipeg since the war.
The Canadian Pacific S.S. "Bru-
ton," which arrived in Liverpool on
September 5th, put up what is considered to be a record in the speedy
discharge of cargo when slio sailed
thc following day, Sept. 6lh, at 7
p.m., having discharged over 2,000
tons of cargo.
It is announced that the Canadian
Pacific Railway will increase the
size of its irrigation head-rates at
Kimball, in southern Alberta, by 50
per cent in anticipation of an increase in area of 40,000 acres in tlie
Lethbridge district. Wate will be
turned into the ditches of l .e Lethbridge Northern project, it is expected, some time this fall.
There have been large increases
in the number of pure bred animals
in Canada during the decade between
the last two censuses. The increase
in the number of pur* bred horses
between 1911 and 1921 was il per
cent; "of cattle, 139 per cent; of
sheep, 75 per cent, and at swine,
nearly 44 per cent. The number of
pure bred horses ia th* Dominion
in 1921 was 47,782; cattle, 296,656;
sheep, 98,648, and of swine, 81,143.
A conservative estimate of th*
amount of money spent in Quebec
by tourists reaches $2,358,760. From
the beginning of May until the first
of September, 15,000 motor tourists
had called for information at th* |
offices of the Quebec Auto Club.
Taking an average of four people
to each car, this meant that at least
60,000 people had come to th* city
by automobiles. Of this number
there were approximately 8,000
camping parties, or 12,000 people.
At the Chateau Frontenac, Quebec, recently, Colonel J. S. Dennis,
Chief Commissioner of Colonization
of the Canadian Pacific Railway,
outlined in a detailed speech existing conditions in Canada and prospects for the future. He emphatically stated that there was no cause
for discouragement, but, on the contrary, every prospect of a renewal
of rapid development, including an
increase in our population and the
development of our latent natural
resources in such a way as to insure, in the comparatively near
fjture, that we should be out of
th* woods, an ' progressing rapidly
to a large population and favorable
business and financial conditions.
