Methods Differ From
Those Followed in This
Country--Weekly Fruit
Id bis addreefi here l«st week,
J. Forsyth Smith, Dominion fruit
trade commissioner in Gr< at Britain,
gave an interest account of fruit
marketing method.* in lhe old country and alao named a list of thu must
popular varieties over there. Space
did not permit of including these
■remarks iu our account of the meeting in our last issue. .
Mr. Smith said that it was impossible to sell any amount of fruit
outright in Eug and. Tbe consignment system there was the common
established practicee, but it was entirely different in its working out
•nd results from the consignment
system aB used in Belling fruit on
tbe prairiee, wbere the market iB
right at baud and there ie no need
of ueing it. If the (fonadian Arms
had tbeir own representatives in tbe
old country direct sales from Canada would be more practicable and
tbe fruit could be Bent to tbe proper
markets when required.
Fruit auclioDB were beid at Liverpool, Manchester, Glasgow aod
Southampton. Their advantages are
quick distribution, i.e., tbe primary
disposal of from 8000 to 30,000
boxes per week under normal con-
ditiont, tbe fixing of values by concentrated bidding of a large proportion of the d'uying power in the ren
spective districts, the fact tbat tbese
prices made in open auction are aln
ways-subject to verification by tbe
government representative on behalf of the shippers, tbe compre-
hensivneees of the buying capacity
represented in an auction salesroom
embracing botb higb and low grade
demand, and perhaps as important
as anything, the special opportunity
offered to good packers to build up
an asset of increasing value by impressing the same roomful of large
buyers week after week and moutb
after moutb witb tbe fact thnl tbeir
paek is uf exceptional uud dependable quality.
It is particularly important that
shippers should realize, thut British
buyers carefully inspect euch lot
offered for sale nt the docks; lhat
samples are opened ui> in lhe salesroom before the bidding begins, uud
that tbe result of tli" system ts thut
demand is concentruird upon 'desirable packs aud directtd away
from iuferior ones.
lt is impossible for shippers ar
customed to carlol selling in this
coubtry to realize that every separate
package regularly offered tin the
British market has its own particular place iu Ibe buyers' scale of,
valueB, and th.t tbe accumulating
effect of the constant cartful judgment passed upon each lot tbat appears insures for worthy pack" a
dependable premium over less deserving ones. A large proportion of
anadian packers consider iheir re*
spective packs as high in standard
aa any on the market The British
buyer knows definitely whether this
is so or not, and just wbere each
one should be ranked in comparison
with hia competitors, and it would
bea liberal eduoation in market requirements if our shippers could
have an opportunity to discuss com*
parative values witb an alert buyer.
The realization of tbe facts so disclosed would change his whole ouU
look as a shipper, and he would no
longer be tempted to lower hie standard in tbe face of the certainty that
suoh lowering would be directly
translated into actual money loss.
There are brands on the English
market tbat regularly sell at a prem-
i im of several shillings a box over
others of tbe same grade. Tbere is
one outstanding instance of a barrel
apple packer wbo never fails to get
a premium of tbree shillings to five
shillings per barrel over tbe market
range for the eame variety, and
whose premium at times has reached
fifteen shillings.

$50,000 Postage on a
Letter From Russia
to the United .States
In this couutry one is accustomed
to sticking the stamps ou a letter
wheu he mails it, says the St, Paul
Daily News.
Not uo iu Russia.
It's (ho other way around iu that
country. They stick the letter onto
the stamps.
Indeed, it tuok 100 stamps, worth
900,000 before iho war, to bring a
letter from Russia to Nick Moore,
227 East Winnifred street.
Mr, Moore got the imposing roll of
stamps today, unwound the roll, and
fouud inside a letter from his mother
in Russia.
Four hundred stamps aud each
stamp worth 250 rubles!
Mr. Jljii'd siir.itili.d hi. lu.iJ a
his eyes surveyed the four big sheets
of stamps.
"Let's see," he said, aud he began
to figure. It was too much for him,
so he took the bundle of stamps up to
Postmaster C. J- Moos to find ite
value. Mr. Moos aud J. G. Tegner of
the Produce Exchange bank figured
out that before the war these 400
stamps would have represented a fortune of $50,000. Think of it,$50,000
to get -b letter to the United States!
But time does cbange. The stamps
are worth only about 75 cents in
American money, so greatly has the
value oi the ruble fallen,
Years ogo when Mr. Moore was in
Russia, it   took   only  tbe equivalent
of 10 cents in American money to
send a letter to this country, ln other
words, about a fifth of a ruble. Now
it takes 100,000 rubles.
The letter was addressee' to Mr,
Moore in care of L. Akkerman, his
cousin, 140 South Wabash street, and
ame from Russian Poland.
The forest fire in the North Fork
district now covers a stretch of fourteen miles on both sides of tbe river
and tbree miles on the Rock Candy
road. The burned-over area is said to
be seventeen miles long by ten miles
wide, and is a very desolate-looking
region. Both fires, tbe Lynch creek
and tbe Dittle Bertha, have now
joined and are burning witb increased fury.

John   J.   Scully   Becomes
Gen. Manager of C.P.R.
Eastern Lines.
The Canadian Pacific operates
something like 20,000 miles of rail-
tnstii .md it.s* employees number
something like 80,000. On suoh a long
road, and amidst suoh a large number
of co-workers, ono can only roach distinction and success by hard work anil
consistent application.
_Tohn J. Scully, who has jnst been
appointed Oenenil Manager for Eastern Lines of the Canadian Pacific
Hallway, is a typical example of railway men who clim>) to the lop of the
ladder. On January 4th, 1887, when
in his fifteenth year, young Scully!
embarked on his railroading career
when he joined the Canadian Pacific
se offloe Soy in the offices of the Car
Accountant at Montreal. In February, 1888, he became a elerk in the
■ame offiee. Moving to Farnham, Quebec, in Jnne, 1888, he became clerk
there to the Assistant Superintendent.
In August, 1890, he returned to Montreal headquarters as elerk to the Superintendent. April, 1891, saw him return to Farnham to hie former position in that town. Mr. Scully joined
the Mechanical Department of the
railway at Montreal in March, 1893,
as clerk. In September, 1894, he was
transferred to Toronto Junction as
elerk in the Mechanical Department
there. Evidently Mr. Scully made
good headway at Toronto Junction,
for in March, 1898, he was appointed
assistant to the Master Mechanic. In
August, 1901, he was promoted to be
assistant to the Master Mechanic at
Winnipeg. Mr. Scully gained wide experience in Western Canada. In
August, 1902, he became chief clerk in
the General Superintendent's office at
Winnipeg. In June, 1903, he became
Assistant Superintendent fer the
Western Division. Promotions following were: July, 1903, chief elerk te
Assistant General Manager, Winnipeg; April, 1904, Assistant Superintendent •- at Brandon; August, 1904,
Superintendent at Brandon; November, 1906, Superintendent at Kenora;
May, 1910, Superintendent Western
Division; July, 1910, General Snperin-
_._,-.    - -  - Biwii«M
April, 1922, General Superintendent at
North Bay for Algoma Division.
Some few years ago George H, Ham
visited one of the towns where Mr.
Scully was stationed. A lady friend
was speaking to George about the
town, and telling him about its many
fine qualities, "and one never need
an alarm clock in our honse,'' she continued .
"Tou are up with the sun, I suppose," said George.
"No," was the reply, "We're up
with John J. Scully. Every morning
at half past sever sharp, winter and
summer, he goes past our door, and
that is our alarm."
"John J. Scully is a great worker,
and one of the best of men," addtd
Mr. Scully's wide experiencs ia
Bast and West will be a great cqui-
si tion to him in dei'ing with .he many
problems of his present position. The
new General Manager of the Eastern
Lines, O.P.R., is very popular, and
has received congratulations from all
over the country on hfs promotion. He
succeeds Mr. Alfred Price, who after
40 years' service with the C.P.R., has
relinquished his duties on the i.dvice
of his physicians and has bcen grant-

The city council during the past three or
four months has been working on a scheme that
seems to be attractive on paper, and if figures
are truthful, as they are reputed to be, it
should  work out advantageously to the ratepayers in practice.    We refer to the project of
the city obtaining its water supply, or the
greater part of it, by a gravity system instead
of by pumping, as is now the case.   The subject has now been discussed at the by-weekly
meetings all through the dog days, and even
prior to the dog days.   Possibly the council
is watching for somo sign of approval from
the taxpayers b3fore it commits itself in the
matter.   The taxpayer can  not approve or
condemti before the facts are laid before him.
This ls the object of the statement that foi
quired for $10,000. The construction of the
system would probably cost another $10,000,
making the total cost of it $20,000. The
Granby property is assessed at $17,500—
$10,000 on improvements and $7500 on land,
and the company pays a school tax on $12,-
500 at 15 mills of $187.50 and a government
tax on a like amount at 10 per cent of $125,
the two taxes amounting to $312.50. Under
municipal ownership of this property the city
would lose the school tax and would have to
pay the government tax.
Summarizing the cost of the sysiem we arrive at this result: To take care of the sinking fund and-interest charges at 6 per cent on
the $20,000 investment would require on annual expenditure of $1,867.70. This sum plus
the $312.50 difference in taxes makes $2180.
If we add $320 for upkeep of the system, we
have a total yearly expenditure of $2500,
or $50,000 for twenty years, against $100,000
under the pumping system, making a saving
of $50,000. If we cut this saving in half
owing to supplemental pumping during the
summer months when Mr. Atwood is using a
portion of the water for irrigation purposes,
there still remains a saving of $25,030, whioh
certainly makes the] project worthy of serious consideration.
The council's contemplated project provides
for a gravity system from Mill and Hull
creeks to the city reserAoir, a distance of
about a mile and a quarter. The water application un Mill creek is completed so far as
submitting it to the water board is concerned;
and the  board has expressed  willingness to
To finance the undertaking it has been suggested that serial debentures for $20,000 be
issued, $1000 to ba redeemed each year out of
the current year's revenues. This plan would
reduce the interest charges and lessen the
cost of the system.

Granby company is taken care of.  In connection with the   Mill   creek negotiations  are
under way with the Granby company to acquire its rights.   An application for irrigation
rights by C. A. S. Atwood for the water in
Mill creek,  now pending before the board,
also enters into fie negotiations.    Measurement   taken   on   Mill creek in July,  1912,
showed 300,000 gallons of water per day, although recent measurements show only 90,-
000 gallons per day available from both creeks.
At the rate of 60 gallons per person per day,
. whicli is the provincial government's basis of
water rentals, the supply would provide domestic water for 1500 people.   At the present
rate for pumping at   2£ cents per kilowatt
hour,  it would cost $5.25 per day to pump
chis amount of water.   This sum would pay
interest and sinking fund on an investment of
$20,000,    While it would be necessary to supplement the present flow by pumping during

In Paris, when a street car is full, the
driver hangs out a sign saying "Complet," and
the car does not stop for passengers. A time-
honored joke on the green tourist is to tell
him of the wonders of "Complet" and direct
him where he can get a car for the place. Of
course the tourist waits an exasperating time
for a "Complet" car to take him aboard. Then
doubtless he sees the joke, and would like to
find thejoker.
There is yet the Atwood application to  be
c insidered.    The water board seems to   be
ii.iwilling to decide between  his application

him. Mr. Atwood is willing to relinquish his
■laim on condition that he is given the use of
the  water  for  irrigation purposes for eleven
hours per day during the four summer months.
This would give the city the use of the  wa^er

eight months.

This year more power will be required, and
in future the power bill for pumping is
not likely to run under $5000. In twenty
years this would mean an expenditure of

pEW Canadians arc aware that
* among the landmarks of United
States history that stand on Canadian soil is the house in which John
Brown, of American civil war fame
hatched thc conspiracy that led to his
•wing hanged and that helped to precipitate thc great struggle between the
North and South. The house stands
at Chatham, Ontario, within a stone's
'hrow of thc C.P.R. station, and in
plain view of those who pass through.
According to local tradjtion the house
was one of thc more imposing residences of the town when, 60 years ago,
John Brown and his friends met in
one of its rooms to arrange his anti-
slavery crusade.
To-day somewhat diminished from
its original imposing proportion the
building houses the towerman who is
on duty at the Immediately adjacent
street crossing.
Sixty years and more ago, says the
'Gait Reporter," the present structure
was a four-tenement building, and one
of the "show places" in Ihe older portion of Chatham. Between 25 ami 30
years ago, when the C.P.R. was run
through Chathami -half of the building
was torn down. Still later, tbe remaining two tenements were converted into
a single residence; and as such thc
building  survives  to-day.
Chatham in thc two decades preced
ing the Civil War, was one of lhe
northern terminals of thc celebrated
"underground railway" organized
American abolitionists to facilitate the
escape of negro slaves to Canada. Large
numbers of the escaped slaves settled
in "Windsor, Chatham, and various
points in Essex and Kenl counties, and
several townsites were laiijniftit at that
time    as    model    negro    communities.
These townsites arc still shown on old
maps, but the communities themselves
unlike Topsy, never "growed," or, if
they attained any proportions have, with
one or two exceptions, long since dwindled into insignificance, with the departure of the greater portion of the colored population.
In the latter 50's, however, Southwestern Ontario contained a large
negro clement, and many of the escaped
slaves had established themselves in
business and were amDitious, well-educated and well-to-do. So when "Ossa-
watomie" Brown, nursing his daring
scheme of freeing thc slaves at a single stroke, looked about for support, he
turned naturally to the negro settlements in Southwestern Ontario for
funds and helpers.
The exact date of trie conference at
which the date was planned is not preserved in the local tradition. It seems
probable that John Brown visited Chat-
bam on several occasions in connection
with his work for the slaves. The conference probably took place late in
1858. or early in 1859.
The Chatham structure is often carelessly referred to as "thc Holden
house." Thc owner, however, was a
colored man named Eli Holton. Hoi
toll was present at the meeting held by
Jobn Brown. So was Isaac Holden,
another prominent colored man. Both
were big men, physically, and leaders in
I thc colored community. E. C. Cooper
,|-id a little man named Harris, with
si-Vral others, took part in the confer
To wjiat extent Brown secured support, financial and otherwise, is not
known. Thc details of the meeting were,
naturally, kept secret at the time; and
what  little tlie publii  ultimately knew
came out, most of it, after the raid.
It was on Oct. 17, 1859, that the
Chatham conference bore fruit in the
startling raid on Harper's Ferry, in
Northern Virginia, where Brown, with
several of his sons and a number of
other white men, seized the national
armory and issued a proclamation calling upon thc slaves to rise in insurrection against their master. Thc raid in
a few hours spread consternation, not
merely throughout Virginia, but
throughout the United States. Lt.-Col.
Robert E. l_ee, however, arrived with
a detachment of marines, thc armory
was recaptured, and Brown and a few
of his companions were taken prisoners.
Brown was hanged at Charleston, Virginia, Dec. 2, 1859.
A few months later, Abraham Lincoln, at his Cooper Institute speech at
New York, referred lo Brown's raid in
the following words:
"John Brown's effort was peculiar.
It was not a slave insurrection it was
an attempt by white men to get up a
revolt among the slaves, in which the
slaves refused to participate. Tn fact,
it was so absurd that the slaves, with
all their ignorance, saw plainly enough
it could not succeed.'
Within a little more than a year of
that speech, and within two years of
the raid, Lincoln was in thc White
House, and the Southern States were
seceding. However thinking men might
condemn his folly, the Northern States
generally regarded Brown as a martyr, and "John Brown's body lies a-
mouldcring in the grave, but his soul
goes marching on," became the battle
song of the soldiers who were destined
a few years later, to compel thc sur

rs and shippers. Apples on the whole
promise exceedingly well in Ontario,
although Spy, Baldwin and Greening
promise to be light. In the other
apple growing provinces a crop 25
per cent lighter than last year is in
dicated. Peaches and plums promise
well   ia   Ontario; so  too do cherries
and currants, while grapes and raspberries are likely to prove a fairly
good crop, but pears appear to be be
low the average.
A Itirgcx acreage than usual has
been sown to onions and one per cent
less to potatoes, The prairie prov-
nces, British Cduinbia, and the
Maritime provinces all show a rather
larger decrease in the acreage devoted
to potatoes, and Quebec shows an
increase of 6 per cent over last year.
In British Columbia peaches, plume
and prunes promise to be better than
the average; aprioots raspberries  and
The woods are yours
to enjoy, but only if
you keep them green
currants about an average; cherries
fair and loganberries light. An increase of the acreage devoted to onions
is reported.
Taking Canada as a whole, 703,600
acres are covered by potatoes this
year, compared with 701,912 acres
last'year, being an increase of 1688
acres. Returning to apples, the total
production last year in the Ave apple
growing provinces was 4,045,813
barrels against 3,382,510 in 1920.
Tha care that is required in packing
and shipping fruit to avoid damage
is emphasized, and the arrangements
that have been made by the branch
for transportation by lots are set
forth, with particular reference to
the distribution of British Qoluiubia
fruit in the prairie provinces, Attention is directed to the provisions of

J. M. Gilmour, chief cleric in ths
C.P.R. general offices at Lethbridge,
has Icen transferred to the aame
position in the superintendent's office at Medicine Hat. J. H. Fair-
ley, chief clerk at Edmonton, will
succeed Mr. Gilmour at Lethbridge.
The former is being replaced in Edmonton by S. C. Connelly of Medi-
Aie Hat. J. M. Gilmour was the
first chief clerk in the Lethbridge
division, having be-in placed here
to open the office August 1, 1914.
He has been with Supt. C. D. Macintosh since that date. He has
always taken a keen interest in the
activities of the C.P.R. Social and
Athletic  club.
No man in Canada has the reputation of equalling Geo. H. Ham, of
the Canadian Pacific Railway Co.,"
as a raconteur and a wit. Sir Thos.
White once called him "a great national asset."
Mr. Ham added that he was glad
that Sir Thomas had fortunately
not forgotten the "et." Even in
the hospital undergoing an operation for appendicitis, Mr. Ham sustained his reputation, as his best
story, probably, will show.
When he lost consciousness, he
says, his last thought was "ThiB is
"When 1 recovered from the effects of the opiate, I found myself
in a darkened room, and wondered
where I was and what it was all
about. The kindly-featured nurse
quickly discovered that my consciousness had returned, and came
to my bedside, and then I remembered everything. 'But why this
dark room? It was early morning
when they operated on me, but now
it can't be night.'
"'No, it isn't,' she seriously responded, 'but we were afraid of ths
shock  you might get.'
"'Why,  what  shock?'
"'Well, there was a big firt just
pcross the street, and ws were
afraid if you awoke, and saw the
flames, you might think that the
operation  hadn't  been   successful.'
"That shows you what it is to
have a reputation."

Washington, July 31.—For the
last ten d-sys of July about the average rain of the past three months is
expected. A moderately severe storm
period will center on July 24, pruduc
ing some rain but less than usual.
North of latitude 36, between
meridian 90 and Rockies' crest, low
temperatures near July 24, preceded
by stormy weather and followed by
very high temperatures; moderate
rainss except that rain will be short
in the best corn states of that divis-
on. Fair crop weather for sowing
winter grain, but it will not make
good fall pasture except in Canada.
North of latitune 36 and west of
Rockies' crest, low temperatures near
July 22 and very high after 25; not
much hope for rain; not good condi
tions for rowing winter grain and it
will not make good fall pasture;
storms only moderate; not a drouth
jno evaporation, only a shortage ef
' rain.
Whatever the volume of the coal
and grain business this fall, the
Canadian Pacific would be in position to handle it. This was the
assurance given by Grant Hall, vice-
president of the company, at Calgary. Mr. Hall is on his annual
tour. He is in a most hopeful
frame of mind regarding the crop
situation in the three western provinces. Present prospects, ho
stated, were that there would bs a
fair average crop.
"No, I do not anticipate any
complications arising on this side
owing to the strike among United
States shopmen," he remarked in
reply to a question. "There is no
occasion to think this at the present time," he added.

IN Canada's gradual return to industrial activity and resultant prosperity, the automobile factories of the country
arc taking a by no means unimportant part. Their shipments to foreign countries, and particularly to other parts
of tlio Brilifl'i Empire arc an increasing factor in trade development. The .ihove photograph shows a train of 25 cars
of Studebaker automobiles which recently left the Stude-
bakcr factor*. ;ii Walkerville, Ont., where the automobiles
were built, on a lung journey over the C.P.R. to London,
England. ** Tlr was only part of tbt shipment, fifteen other
carloads havi-a* gone forward very shortly afterwards.
Cars shippe■' overseas require far different treatment than
(hose shipped by rail. In the first place, an export car
is enclosed in a huge wooden case, sturdily bound and bolted
together  so  that   ii   has  ample   strength  to  withstand the
rough handling it must contend with in being hoisted into
perhaps shipped overland if its destination happens to be
:he hold of a shfjj, then rehoisted out upon the wharf and
an inland town.
In order to crate the car, the wheels are removed, top and
windshield taken off, and every device employed toward
making thc packing as compact as possible. Compactness is
desired for two reasons. First, to prevent play in the case;
nnd second, to minimi.** the ocean freight charges," for-
steamship companies differ from the railroads in that they
fix their rates on the basis of cubic feet, instead of so much
per pound of weight. Many precautions in export boxing
are exei cised in order to regulate the contact of salt air
with the finish of the car. The surfaces of all metal parts
ire protected by a coating of grease. The lining of the
case with tar paper lends further protection.
IT brings tho whole country for miles around within easy reach.
