of the district. It is read by more
people in the city and valley than any

It is always independent but never

Harvey Hansen-and A. E Kip
piDg appeared before the council
and asked for au' extension of the
electric rysteui for power purposes
to their homes in the West ward,
stating tbat they were wil ing to pay
half the cost of installing ihe same.
Tbe council seemed well disposed
toward the proposition aud referred
tbe .matter to the wat'ir aud light
committee witb power to act.
The usual batch of monthly ac
counts were ordered to be paid.
The chairman of the water and
light committee reported that a
nozzle had been ardered for tbe fire
department; that foot valve at the
pump station had been repaired,
and that sufficient 3J inch pipe had
been secured to connect tbe service
oa Observation avenue with Winnipeg avenue.
The band made a request for a
grant not to exceed $35 to repair the
instruments.   Promised.
The Grand Forks hospital made
enquiries regarding the disposition
of tbe liquor profits grant. Action
was deferred pending an interview
with the manager of the hospital.
The question of forcing the cIosh
ing of the local barber shops at a
specified hour was gone into and
laid over for legal advice.
The question of the erection and
maintenance of unsightly fences t
the cemetery was discussed, and the
council thought tbe practice ought
to ba discouraged in future.
The aiiiiunl grant covering the refund of the road tax of tbe members
of the fire department wbo are uot
property owners, was authorized by
tbe council.
Mayor Hull submitted a very
comprehensive report of tbe business transacted at the annual cons

Fined for Stealing
Newspaper From
Owner's Porch
Cincinnati, Oetober 10.—
That a newspaper is worth to
the subscriber many times the
value placed upon it in fixing
the retail selling price has
long been a recognized fact.
It has remained, however,for
a Cincinnati policecourtjudge
to measure its mental worth,
or rather the lack of it, in
dollars.
The stealer of a newspaper
from a subscriber's front
porch was apprehended and
upon being brought into
court was fined $5 because of
"Really,"said Brown,"Wis
an actuary with the Ajax.
What's your company?"
"Well, you sec," remarked
Mr. Newcomer, "I've a company of my own."
"Well, I am surprised. We
seem to be entertaining a
capitalist in our midst."
The passing of these remarks had more or less fo-
cussed the attention of the
group on Newcomer. He, in
turn, felt an explanation was
more or less necessary.
"Perhaps I'd better explain," he began. "You all
carry insurance of many and
various kinds. In fact,besides
the regular fire, marine and
life policies, with which we
arc all familiar, it seams as if
we could protect ourselves
against any kind of loss.
There has, however, been one
field never touched by insurance. So, I spend my time
working out protection for
that field, Mhich ranks in importance with life and fire
and, as a mattci of fact, it is
sometimes more than either."
Well, what is that? En
lighten us," spoke up one ofj
the group.
"Markets!" .icplied Newcomer.
"What do you mean?"
"Simply^that time and experience have proved that
there is a policy which not
only extends over the field
but actually protects against
inroads on a manufacturer's
market."
"Well, I'd like to buy such
protection," said Henry, the
boot and shoe man. "What
dp you call this policy?"
"Regular payment continuous advertising," replied
Newcomer.
"Humph!" Brown ejaculated, "that's another angle
to an old story.'

He is also proteoted by the clause
which states that no potatoes shall
be sold which are so diseased or
otherwise depreciated as to rendsr
them unlit for human consumption.
All root vegetables must be snld
by weight, witb tbe grading marked
in a plain and indelible manner on

This is especially noticeable in tbe
cases of peaches, plums and prunes.
Some very fine  Mcintosh  apples

a gook demand for the No. 1 stock
despite tbe fact that crates containing mixed grades are being offered
at $1.65 retail. These Mill retard
the sale of Nu. 1 stock to a certain
extent, but nevertheless the prime
quality is being disposed of in large
quantities and ouce tbe mixed
grades are finished there should be a
largely increased demand for the

the fact that the potato crop locally

CLOSE to the Dock Gates, and nearly |
opposite the South-Westcrn Hotel,
the new Canadian Pacific Building at
Southampton, England, opened nn
Monday, Sept. 4th, will soon become a
well-known landmark for travellers.
The building stands out in striking relief to the rather drab appearance of
Canute Road, on which it faces. A
stone front, colour washed brickwork,
and pleasant green shutters to the first
floor windows, have assisted in achieving this desirable effect. Window dec-

In view of the outbreak'of codling
moth in some orchards in a few districts in British Columbia, the following article, wbich appeared in an
cistern publication, will he of interest to growers:
Isaac Newton is said to have disco1, ored the law of gruvitation as a
result of studies induced or suggested
hy the fall of an ipple. Wbat made
the apple fall to the ground? The
subject tbat concerns the fruit grower is uot the law that made the apple drop, but what made it leave the
tree—before its time.
Did you ever go uut under au np.
pie tree aud find on the ground hundreds of little apples hardly larger
tban a marble? None of tbem were
ripe, and most of tbem bad not
! even startld to ripen. It is the work
of the codling moth.
If you will look at one of th se
apples that bas fallen to the ground
you will find that it has or has I; id
a worm iu it That is the reason it
fell. When a worm has eaten into
the core and hurt the seeds so that
they can not ripen, tbe tree knows
there is no use of feeding that apple
any longer. Therefore the apple fulls
from the tree. If the worm does not
get right into the core, however, ih>
apple will often remain on the tree
until it haB ripened. Then wben you
eat the apple you find the worm.
You will be interested to know
bow and wbere ihis little apple thief
lives After the worm crawls out of
the apple, it begins to look for a
place to sleep. It usually finds a
piace under loose bark of the tree or
under weeds that grow near the tree
Wben it finds a place that is suitable, a silken cradle is woven around
it. lt finds its bed in the fall, sleep-
all winter and wakes up just as the
tree is blooming in the spring. A
great cbange has taken place while
it was asleep. It went to sleep aB a
worm and woke up a moth with
wings.
The moth lays its eggs on the
leaves, bark or fruit of the apple
tree. In a short time the eggs batch
into worms. Then tbe worms begin
crawling and enter tbe apples at tbe
blossom end. In some parts of our
conntry tbere are two crops of cod«
ing moths.
The best way is to spray tbe trees
with a mixture of three pounds of
arsenate of tead and 50 gallons of
water. Tbe first dose of poison
BJould be given a week or ten days
after tbe petals fall from the blossoms. A second dose Bhould be
given three or four weeks later.
Why not plan to keep the little
apple thief out of your orchard next

FRIDAY, OCTOBER 13, 1922
"Bunk!" That's the word for you.   A luscious, juicy, onomato-poetic word; that damns
pretension in its utterance, and rebukes  with
a smacking gesture the vacuity of the spellbinder.    More power to it!   May its use increase, not as the mere caup de grace of conversational retort, but as tue critical  estimate
of good people of this smoke screen of empty
words that hangs around us.    Of course it is
hardly to be expected that in this  superlative
age we could get along without  some  bunk.
Babies and sunsets, fire sales and circus parades,  must be  described in crescendo style.
The demagogue must goggle, and the heart of
the "people" must be touched by the seeker
after suffrage. So the flood of words runs on.
But if we can  not stop the flood we can at
least refrain from swelling it. There are such
things as truth and restraint in speech. To seek
for them is a Christian duty. And even though
the times do be unpropit'ous, it is worth while
striving for honesty in speech as well as in
thought.
Evory time a member of the Victoria gov -
ernment sneezes columns of "bunk" are
broadcasted by the Conservative press abou t
an impending provincial election.
A few months ago the Mennonites left
Canada for Mexico becanse the government
of Manitoba insisted that English and not
German should be the first language taugh t
in their schools. However, the "liberty" of
Mexico, where bandits raided and robbed
them, was rather too much liberty; the Mennonites have asked Manitoba to take them
back. The English language and a real gov-
ornment do not leok so bad after all.
The trouble with the easy-going fellow
that it's so hard to get him started.
is
The disproportion between the sexes varie s
greatly througqout Europe, but every country
that has been at war has a large surplus of
"'omen. On the whole continent of Europe,
accordidg to English statistics, there is an excess of twenty-five million women.
Cesspools Where Child Laber Is Legitimate Infect the Entire Nation
[heubert c. hoover ]
Every weli wisher of children feel deeply
the failure of the lasl effort in national prevention of child labor. A study of the situation
as it stands will show that a majority of states
have forwad-looking and effective laws in child
protection, that some others have enacted
legislation that at least goes part way. But
there is a minority that are still in the Middle
ages in their attitude to childhood.
Child labor in these backward states is competitively unfair to industry in the states that
have responded to the moral and social ideals
of our people. But far beyond this, the moral
and economic results of debilitated, illiterate
and untrained manhood and womanhood that
must spring from these cesspools where child
labor is encouraged and is legitimate, infect
the entire nation.
All of us would agree in the wish that the
sense of local government and local responsibility in our country were such thai each and
every state would advance itself to the forefront in this, so vital a question. It would be
far better for the future of the republic if this
were true. With the growing population and
growing complexity of our industrial and social life, the constant resort to federal control
for solution of difficulties will yet undermine
the very basis of social progress by the destruction of sense of localjresponsibility.
However, if it is]lmpossible to secure this
neceesary safeguard to;-, our people by local
government, I am one of those who consider
losses in our sense of local responsibility are
less than the losses to the nation as a people;
and if all else fail I stand for amendment to
the federal constitution that will give the
necessary power and authority to compel action in these states which are negligent of
their responsibilities.
Clearly, if economic waste is reprehensible,
waste of child life, whether viewed economically or in terms of common and universal
betterment, is a blight that in its measure is
more deplorable than war.
It may be worth recounting that our system of individualism can only stand if we can
make effective the supreme ideal of America.
This ideal is that there shall be an equality of
opportunity for every citizen to reach that position in the community to which his intelligence, abilities, character and ambition entitle
him. I am a strong believer in this progressive
individualism as the only road to economic,
social and spiritual safety and to human progress. Without this tempering ideal that
Ameaica has evolved, individualism will not
stand.

SWINGING ROUND THE BIG CIRCLE
ii„
TIB Canadian Pacific Railway, a
Mtioo-w.de institution, touches tbe
IH* of Canada at all points. One of
tha primary requisites of its employees
il to know Canada in all Its aspects—
not Merely the conditions of the district m which they happen to live, but
the conditions of the entire country.
Thto ia particularly the case with pas-
tenger department men, who, to be real
friends of the travelling public, should
have wide knowledge gained from actual residence and experience in dif-
l assts of tb* Dasaiiainn.
In order to give ita officials this nation-wide outlook and experience, the
Canadian Pacific swings them around
the big circle once in a while. Men in
the east go waist, and westerners come
east. One such swing, together witli
some important promotions, are just
announced by Mr. C. B. Foster, Pas
scnger Traffic Manager of the com
pany. From Vancouver (where he ha
been General Passenger Agent), Mr. H
W. Brodie (3) goes east to Montreal to
become Assistant Passenger Traffii
Manager.
-Mr. VV. H. Snell (6) General Passenger Agent at Montreal, goes to tako
a similar position at Vancouver, and
Mr. G. A. Walton (2), General Passenger Agent at Winnipeg, takes over
Mr   Shelrs duties at Montreal.
Mr. N. R. DesBrisay (8), District
Passenger Agent at St. John, goes to
be Assistant General Passenger Agcnl
al Winnipeg, and Mr. W. B. Howard (1), who has been District Passenger Agent at Toronto, goes to be
Assistant General Passenger Agent at
Montreal, and Mr. G. B. Burpee (5),
General Agent at Cleveland, Ohio .goes
to be District Passenger Agent at St.
John.
Amongst the promotions announced at
the same time are Mr. Walter
Maughan (9), Assistant General Passenger Agent, Montreal, to be Assistant
to General Passenger Traffic Manager |
Mr. R. G. McNeillie (7), (Assistant
General Passenger Agent, Winnipeg),
to bc General Passenger Agent there)
Mr. W. Fulton (10), to be District
Passenger Agent, Toronto, and Mr. W.
Horder (4), to be Assistant District
Passenger Agent, Toronto.
Battleships
Are Not the
Only Things
Being
Scrapped
These Days
II Lots of other things
were scrapped before
the Washington Conference became even
a possibility—old prejudices—old grudges
—old methods of diplomacy had to be
discarded before it
was possible to ask
for bids from the junk
man for a few billion
dollars worth of "war
canoes."
0 If you are to make
the most of your
opportunities selling
Merchandise, it will
pay you to take stock
of your methods of
doing business and
scrap ruthlessly the
old systems or prejudices that new conditions have rendered
obsolete. And above
all court publicity-
secret diplomacy is as
bad for your business
as it is for the business of running a nation—
