to the extremely hoi weather that
prevailed during the peak of the
movement. Results wer-.- n it so satisfactory on Royal Aones. The
markets were unable lo abiorb these
ae fast as they were shipped and
eome peinta bacame overloaded.
Sour cherries brought much grief
everywhere and weie the cause of
maoy claims on acbount of poor
condition. Until these can he press
cooled and sent out in shape to arrive in saleable condition it is
doubtful if tbey will ever bring a
satisfactory return to the grower.
The movement of apricots is now
past tbe peak The crop would appear to be considerably less than
tbe original estimate and the grtater
part of the available supply has al
ready been shipped, all in mixed
cars. The early shipments met the
competition of Waabi gton apricots
on the prairies, but these were practically over by July 19 and the de<
maud has since been steady witb a
rising market. With tbe small sup
ply in sight the prospect is good for
a firm market lbe remiindar ol the
apricot season.
This week will see the peak of tbe
peaoh plum movement. At present
mixed cars containing as many as
300 of these have found ready sale.
Unless the crop is larger than appears at present it is possible tbe
builk of the peacn plum crop has
been moved iu thie way.
The first xtraight car of summer

hiii-f and unostentatious program
was carritd out.

more democratic than the presidential candidate on tbe Democratic
ticket across the boundary line.

Vicioria, July 31.—The annual
report of the department of labor
shows that throughout Britieh Columbia employers are paving female
workers considerably mote than tbe
legal minimum wage. The avetnge
weekly wage ie 817. 14, w hile the
miuimum under the law rune fioni
$12.75 to$15.50. The average weekly working hours for wouneD and
girls ie 43 31. Satisfaction is fx«
pressed by the minister of labor,
Hon. A. M Manson, over the letter
cooperation between employers aud
the mintmum wage board.
According to figures given out by
Hon' T. D. Pattullo, the timber iudustry is steadily developing in litis
province. For the first six months
of 1924 Ihere was an inert are of 15
per cent in the amom t <.l timbtr
scaled over that for the correspor d-
ing period laet year. The mtal for
tbe balf year ending Jut e 30 was
1,300,000,000 hoard feet.
The  sale  of   another $2,000,000
issue of British Columbia bonds has
been   effected by   Hou. John Hart,
minister of finance. This brings the
year's sales  up  to $8,000,000, and
the minister is receiving congratu!as<
tions   upon   tbe splendid  price ren
ceived.   Even  with $5,000,000 already placed through tbe Dominion
Securities Coipotalion   of  Toronlo,
the   market   was   eager  for   more

Smokeless Locomotive
Built of wood at the Angus Shops, this full sized model of one of the latest
type locomotives was designed originally as a feature of the dinner
decorations at the Chateau Frontenac on the occasion of the Quebec conference of tbe Canadian Pacific Railway officers. Equipped with bell,
.whistle and electric lights, not a bolt or bar is lacking to mar the illusion
which is that of a perfect engine coming through the wall against which
jt is placed. The headlight holds a portrait of E. W. Beatty, president of the
Canadian Pacific. At the Toronto Exhibition, August 23rd „o September

Notes • Notions • Notables
The opposition press of the provinco is try
ing hard   to  oust Premier Oliver from the
leadership of the Liberal party of British Co
lumhia.    Their reasons for this action are ob
vious.    It is gratifying to learn, therefore, that
the members of Ids cabinet are united in their
desire to have Honest John remain at the head
of the  party.   There   are   some good reasons
for this decision ol the ministers.   It was Pre
mier Oliver's policy that won tbe election for
the government.   Mr. Oliver's personal defeat
was brought about by one constituency alone.
Probably three fourths of the electors throughout the province who voted the Liberal ticket
did  so  because  they wanted the premier to
fi"/ht  the freight rates issue to a finish.    To
discard the premier now and to sidetrack this
question, so vital to the people of British Columbia,  would   be a crime against the electorate
The first of the English orders of knight
hood is thc Order of the Bath, which is supposed to date to the period of the ancient
Franks, and to have been introduced into
Fngland by lhe .Saxons. The order as at present, constituted was instituted by George I,
who revived it 199 years ago, May 25, 1725,
aod fixed tht! number of knights at thirty-
sevi'ti. In 18lf> (he prince regent, afterwards
George IV, greatly increased the membership,
and on May 2.">, 1S47, new statutes were decreed, by wbich the order, hitherto exclu
sively military, was opened to civilians. The
Order of tin.' Hath gained its uame from the
fact that the ancient Franks and SaxoDS made
bathing an important part of the rites connect*
ed with the creation of knights. The order was
not formally constituted until 1839,
A relic of a voiy curious charity exists in
the giving of money tn the poor of certa'n
London parishes on Maundy Thursday. Originally the money was accompanied with gifts
of clothes and provisions, and, strangest of
all, by the washing of poor people's feet by
the king or queen in person. Another curious
point about this charity was that the numbei
of poor persons entitled to receive it was the
exact number of years which the reigning
monarch had lived.
This is from a French manual for the guidance of youth, first published in 1713, which
ran through 50 editions in the course of the
eighteen century: "For the sake of cleanliness
it is well to rub the face every morning with
a white towel in order to remove the dirt. It
is not advisable to wash with water, for this
exposes the face to the chills of winter and
the heats of summer." A similar work, published in 1067, warns children that "to wash
with water injures the eyesight, brings on
toothaches and colds and engenders pallor."

two hours at Revelstoke the entire
crowd was taken to the top of Mount

The Telephone Is a
Daylight Saver
Saving daylight is a big topic at this time of the
year. Everyone endeavors to make the most out of
the daylight hours. In these modern times, life each
day is fuller, and each hour must mean far more than
it did yesterkay.
There is no better aid to daylight saving than the
telephone. Nothing can help you more to make each
successive hour of greater value.
Whether you telephone one mile or one hundred
miles it is all the same to the telephone. The telephone
saves you hours. It lengthens your day, giving you
time for many things.

Taking Care of
the Honey Crop
Honey is a perishable article no
matter whether it is left in the comb
or extracted. With Care it cnn be
bc kept in good condition for long
pei iods, especi illy in the extrrcted
form, Nectar, as gathered by the
bees, contains a high percentage of
water, wlrch must be evaporated be.
fore the honey caa be extracted.
When the cells are filied and the
right amount of evaporation has taken
place, the honey is -ealed over and ls
ihen considered to be "ripe." It is
not advisable to extract honey until
at least three fourths of the cells are
capped, especially in regions where
rhe honey is inclined, to be rather
thin. Comb honey should be left on
the hives until all celis containing
honoy are sealed, hut should not be
loft on any longer, as the sections are
likely to become travel stained.
Tho honey should be extracted us
soon as possible after the supers aro
removed from the hives, and if done
while still warm, more honey will ha
taken from the combs. After- the
honey is extracted it must be strained
to remove all foreign matter Straining may be done through fine cheesecloth or by letting the honey stand in
tanks for two cr tbree daya, when all
foreign matter will havo risen lo the
surface. If the honey is well riponed,
it should be placid in the final con
tinners at onco, before it starts to
granulate, but if it, is too thin it,
should bo left in tlie luliks a short
time for further ripening. Honev
should be stored in a dry place, as it
readily absorbs moit lure from a damp
atmosphere Honey ripening in tanks
should stand in a wn in, dry room.
Ripened honey iu containers ready i ir
market ivil keep better in a cold dry
placo Seotion honoy should bo stored
in a well vent i ated    : i nn   wlu-iv  the
temperature is high and constant or
moisture will chmIii.su on the cap-
