STORAGE OF FRUIT
ANDREGETABLES
The storge of fruit and vegetables
for bome nd market must receive
greater attention tbad it hae hitherto
been accorded. The amount ol waste
annually is very grest. As a'first
step towards eliminating this, every
fsrme or household with sufficient
land to grow vegetables, and per
haps fruit trees, should understand
more about stori g tbe crop. Sot
crops keep best in an atmosphere
that bas a high moisture content,
Whereas others require a low per*
ceotage of humidity. So it will be
seen that tbere can not be a oondi-
tion to suit all vegetables snd fruits
in the same cellar or storage building. Apples, pears, potato e, carrots
apd oabbagesoon deteriorate in yery
dry storage; wbile oo the other hand
winter squash, purnpkins, marrows
aad other such crops like a dry  at
mospbere.   Moulds and rots soon
. u . 11* i
destroy tbem.
If you know your cellar is a very
dry one and you wish to keep apples,
etc., in it make provision for adding
moie moisture to the air by intro
ducing wet sacks spread out or by
sprinkling the floor, tbe idea being
tbst a large surface must be wet and
evaporatiou quick. The atmospheric
humidtty can be tested with a wet
sod dry bulb thermometer. Tske
tbe resdings snd check up on the
chart wbicb is supplied witb it. A
humidity ranging between 75 and
85 is satisfactory.
In case of squash and pumpkins,
etc., any frost-proof place which is
dry is suitable—tbe top shelf of the
pantry, for instance, or shelves in
the passage. Quality is often lower
ed by poor ventilation. Wbere crops
Soiling, or soilage, is the applying
of forage fresb from the fields to
animals, ratber tban having tbe animals rustle for themselves. Tbis
form of husbendry makeB an e o-
oomic use of labor and capital in
maintaining farm animals on a relatively small area [of land. Wbere
the farm holdings are small, as they
largely are io tbis province, soiling
crops could io many instances be
used to advantage. Some of tbe ad.
vantages of soiling may be briefly
itemised as follows: First, a larger
yield is obtained by allowing plants
nearly io mature before harvesting
tbem tban by pasturing. Second,
with a succession of soiling crops tbe
production from milch cows wil)
not decline, ae when pastures become parched io midsummer. Third,
none of the forage is wasted by be*
ing tramped, or fouled by manure.
Fourth, less fencing is required,
Natural y tbis system bas some ob*-
jeclions, but these are outweighed
by the many desirable features. In
msny cases it would not be desirable
t do away witb thepasture entirely,
but a combination of soilage and
pasture might well be adopted, the
farmer should go carefully into the
various phases of tbe question, and
if necessary experiment, or lemon
etrste to his own satisfaction tbe
mesbod most economical for bim to
follow. , ■   ,,
When soilage is practised a succession of crops must be carefully
planned, eo that a continuous supply of green feed will be available
oyer a given period. A long list of
crops is suitable for this system, ins
eluding tbe various legumes, alfalfa,
cloven,' field peas and soy beans.
Among the.cereals, rye, wheat, barley and oats may be used. Often a
mixture of cereals is made use of.
One of the best mixtures for either
soiling or silage is oats and peas, or
o ts, peas and vetches. Some of
the cultivated grasses may be used,
as well as corn,,suoflowers aod millets:
From tbe foregoing list fall rye
will naturally give the first crop of
the aeuon. This msy be followed by
alfalfa, clover, grasses, cereals, oats
and peaaj or pats, peas and vetch.
Fo'lowiog this the alfalfa may be
ready lor second outting; followed
by millets, corn, sunflowers, cereals
and clovers. Soiling crops should
not be fed until reasonably mature
if best results aie to be obtained
No definite order of crops has been
attempted, as conditions vary lo
ca[ly. From tbe foregoing, however,
it is hoped that the farmer may be
able to work out for bis own condi»
tions a cropping system tbat will be
satisfactory.—R. G. Newton, Superintendent Invermere Experimental
Station.

Tips on Tapioca
What do you know about tapioca?
Well, it is round; it is made of—of—
Let Charles W. Mead help us out; in
Natural History he describes how the
Indians of Brazil manufactnre the
starchy, jellylike globulrs.
The Indian woman, he says, takes
a large piece of bitter cassava root in
both hands and rubs it back and forth
on a board studded with huudreds of
sharp pebbles until the root iB re-
dnced to palp When she has grated
S sufficient quantity she presses as
much water out of it as possible. For
-this purpose she us?s as a press a long,
(■arrow tube of basketwork called a
tipiti, with a loop at either end. She
forces the pulp into ths press, which
she then hangs up by one of the loops
Through the lower iood she inserts a
long, stout pole, which she runs under
some convenient objeot, which serves
ss s fulcrum. Then she sits on the
free end of the pole, snd ber weight
stretches the press and forces the
liquid through the interstices of the
baskotwork. The liquid is caught in
a pottery vessel snd is made into cas •
sareep, the favorite condiment of the
South American Indian,
The wet mass is taken from the
press and spread on a large fiat dish
of pottery with a raised rim; under
the dish a fire is built. If stirred
rapidly the preparrtion will not cake
into large masses but will quickly
agglomerate into small, irregular pel-
ets, which are the tapioca of com.

There's a good deal of education
for a young fellow in owning s share
or two of divideud-paying stock. A
dividend makes as interesting a lecture on economics as any professor
csn give.
In thedry belt of British Columbia, where the conservation of soil
moistuic is of the utmost importance
to successful farming, a study of
evaporation becomesesssotial. Asa
beginning in tbis direction tbe Dob
minion experimental station at Summerland installed a tank, made of
galvanized iron sunk into tbe ground,
six feet square by two feet deep,
from wbich, by means of a vernier,
measurements of evaporation from
an open water surface can be mad e
as near as one-hundredth of ao inch.
During the summer of 1922 the
average, daily evaporation from this
open surf ice was as follows: April
(8 days), .13 in.; May, 14; June,
.22; July, .22; August. .15; September, .12; October, .06. The total
evaporation over this period, i.e.,
from April 23 to October 31 was
28.54 inches. The total rainfall
over the same period was 5.12
inches. ,    .
The relative atmospheric humidity, taken at 9 o'clock each morning, is also interjsting. The average
figures for tbe months are as follows: May, 61 per cent; June, 4 6
per cent; July, 51 per cent; August,
62 per cent; September, 65 per cent;
October, 79 per cent. From these
figures it will be noticed tbat tbe
greatest evaporation and tbe lowest
percentages of relative humidity occur in June and July, lt is scarcely
necessary to point out the close relationship between tbese two sets of
figures. Atmospheric moisture is the
product of evaporation from tbe
surface of tbe earth, A very dry
atmosphere has a strong pull on tbe
available moisture.
Having thus briefly indicated tbe
conditions wbich prevail during tbe
summer months, we muse now con
sider what means are at the disposal
of the farmer to enable him to conserve moisture against these conditions.
Earth mulches may be considered
tbe most efficient conservators of
soil moisture, but tbe advantageous
use of these requires a thorough understanding of their nature. Continuous clean cultivation, year after
year, impoverishes the soil of its
organic matter aod oitrogen. Bacterial action is greatly reduced; tbe
texture of the soil deteriorates. Unless one csn apply heavy dressings
of barnyard mannre this practice
can not be continued beyond tbree
or four years.
A  second   method   ia   the crop
mulch system and this, under our
conditions, is by far the safer method. Under favorable conditions alfalfa may be regarded as the orop to
grow, but this must be regarded as
a cover crop ooly, oot as a hay
crop. Uoder less favorable condition', where the humus content of
tbe soil is deficient, or where there
is a probability of a water shortage
towards July or August, hairy vetcb
hae maoy advantages over alfalfa.
Anyone requiring information oo
the methods of treating tbese cover
crops should address tbe superintendent experimental station, Summerland, B.C. I

Victoria,August 29. —Hon. T. D
Pattullo, minister of lauds,is thank-
ing tbe general public for its co
operation in keeping down tbe loss
from forest fires this season. Only
two-fifths as maoy fires have been
reported this year as there were last
yesr up to tbe same date, and
whereas the cost of fighting fires in
1922 was $343,000 up to August 17,
tbe cost tbis year has been cut to
$20,000. The minister points out,
however, that this is the most dangerous season of tbe year aod the
same care, or even greater vigilance,
must be exercised for another
month if this splendid record is to
be maintained.
Hon. J. D.   MacLean,  provincial
secretary and minister of railways,
bas returned from an extended tour
of   inspection   of the Pacific Great
Eastern   railway   and     contiguous
couutry. He found little but optim
ism aud stated tbat the number of
uew settlers wae surprisingly large.
As an evidence of thia he remarked
tbat tbe number of school   teachers
io tbe northern inspectorate bad in.
creased from 56 io 1919 to 108  tlii-i
year.    As minister of educstion.Dr.
MacLean said that the  government
was seeing to it that every child wn

In settling up a pioneer country this
accommodation was generally  lacks
iog, but not so io British Colubla.
Kxceptfng in a few isolated cues
in the remoter sections of the province roads have been provided for
settlers all over the British Colum
bia, states Hon. W. H. Sutherland,
minister of public works, who this
summer has visited every section
of tbe province. Next year's program will include tbe construction
aod improvement ot a large mileage
of settlers' roads, tbe aim of tbe department being to assist tbe general
development of British Columbia
tbrough the provision of adequate
transportation facilities.
The Disillusioned Man
Among the fugitive pieces written
by the iate Sir Walter Raleigh, English scholar and man of letters, and
collected in a book called Laughter
From a Cloud, are these charming
though gently cynical lines. They are
supposed to. be the reflections of an
elderly man wbo haa just come home
from a garden party:.
I wish I loved the human race;
I wish I loved its silly face;
I wish I liked the the way it walks;
I wish I liked the way it talks;
And when I'm introduced to one
I wish I thought, "What jolly funl"
Although warnings against the
forestfire menace have been sent out
repeatediy, Hon. T. D. Pattullo,
minister ot lands, bas another appeal
to make to the citizens of British
Columbia. The hazardous season has
arrived and care during the next tw o
montha will mean a saving of millions
of dollars.
Probably no question relating to
public affairs bas stirred up so much
interest in recent years in this province as that of freight rates reductions. This vitally affects the very
life of British Columbia and the sue
cess of tbe government's fight would
he reflected immediately in the industrial and commercial development of tbe province. Following
Premier Oliver's return from Ottuwa, wbere he attended before the
privy council, be stated tbat tbe
outlook was most promising, but
even if the* federal government did
not settle tbe mitter fairly the provincial government had another
card to play, a direct appeal to tbe
throne
Hon. T. D. Pattullo, minister o
lands, is continuing bis fight against
the Orientals and states tbat if the
cessation of tbe Anglo-Japanese
alliance automatically abrogates the
treaty between Great Britain nnd
Japan, then tbe effect of the recent
decisions of the privy council, which
were against British Columbia, wjll
be nullified. The minister points
out tbat British Columbin can not
assimilate the Japanese, and consequently it would be better for tbe
Orientals to discontinue tbeir efforts
to secure control of any of our natural resources. He ssates tbat trade
is now being carried fin between the
two countries profitably to botb and
hopes tbis will continue and expand. THE SUN: GRAND FORKS, BRITISH COLUMBIA

England is still the land of the bicycle.   In
discussing the merits of different types  of
vehicles for holiday use the Manchester Guar
dian settles on the bicycle as the "happy  me
dium of holiday travel." The motorist goes too
far and too fast, and the walker's range is
limited; but the bicyclist is "at once a human
spirit and part of his own machine."   In Eng
land the motorist has not yet monopolized all
the roads.
The  Imperial  Fruit Show, which is to be
held in  Manchester, England, at the end  of
October aud the early days of November, has
special signiftcans for Cauada this year.   The
British apple crop will be light, while Canada
will hava a fi.ie lot of fruit to  dispose   of.
Canadian fruit is to be well represented at this
show, not only in  the competitive overseas
section, but the fruit branch of the Dominion
department of agriculture will make a display
that will be of special significance. Fruit inspectors of the department, it is repo'rted   hy
the fruit commissioner, are at present looking
over commercial orchards in different parts of
Canada with a view to locating the sources of
the samples that are to be displayed.   The
branch will have an imposing boot1"!,which will
contain pictorial and other representations of
the Canadian fruit industry.  From the standpoint of the overseas apple grower, Canada is
given special consideration, as the board of
judges will ontain a Canadian representative
who will be nominated by the fruit commissioner. The members of the board will consist
of three men, oue each from Great Britain
and Canada and a ncutraljudge. Schedules of
classes and entry  blanks or any further information in regard  to the Imperial Fruit
Show may be had  upon application to the
fruit commissioner, department of agriculture,

A company that produces electrical equip-

or in a low and quiet tone.
This is what a correspondent in Germany
says of the extraordinary power Hugo Stinnes
has over the economic life of that country:
"From his own pjoperties Stinnes can build
and light my house and supply me with all the
housekeeping utensils I use in it. He can provide me with reading matter, whether daily
news or improving literature. He can feed me
on meat, bread and jam. He cau give me
medicine when I am sick.and when I am cured
he can take me on a pleasure cruise in his
own ships and put me up at his own hotels.
Moreover,' he prints the money with -which I
pay him." A modern Colossus indeed, who
aspires to control Germany politically as well
as financially and commercially.

The American Farm Bureau Federation
proposes to withdraw two hundred millio n
I) ishels of the current wheat crop, store it on
Cirms or iu cooperative elevators and finance
the affair by moans of money made available
liy the new intermediate credit act. Farm
iiins would be designated as bonded w-are-
Inuses by the government, and the farmer,
t'irough tho credit system, coald borrow up
to three quarters of the value of his wheat,
which he could hold until prices advanced to
,t satisfactory point. Mr. Bradfnte, president
ofthe federation, thinks that the plan would
raise the price of wheat to $1.40 or $1..50 &
bushel. There would be some danger, bow-
ever, that the rise in price would lead to
planting more instead of less wheat and con
sequently to a still larger surplus  next year.
The newspapers recently reported that the
International Suffrage Alliance, which met in
Borne, was thrilled by the news that Mussolini had promised that "certain cotegories" of
women should recive the vote. That he has
gone so far as that shows that his earlier opinions on woman suffrage are shaken, but until
we learn just wbat women are to be Included
in his "certa:n categories" we shall be in
doubt whether he has really been converted
or whether his promise was a verbal courtesy
toward the women who selected his capital as
meeting place.

THE IRONIC WHISPER
George Washington's attitude toward those
who underestimated the need of adequate
means of national defence was much like that
of military men today toward the same class
of persons. This little anecdote of him was related in 1817 by a member of the Virginia
house of delegates in the course of a debate
during which the matter of military roads was
mentioned:
The question before the new congress was
how large a standing army the country should
have. One of the members made a motion that
the standing army should not exceed five
thousand men. General Washington whispered
to a member from Maryland to amend the
motion by provididg that no foreign enemy
should invade the United States at any one
time with more than three thousand men.
O BOSTON!
Urging that the candidates in an impending
local political struggle make a study of terse
English, the Boston Herald drives its argument home by quoting this conversation between two young women who met at a party:
"Say, usen't you work to Smith's?"
"Sure. I seen you there," she replied with
cordiality. "Usen't your feet to ache you?"

Prince o>  Wales a Canadian Rancher

Nearly four thousand men were
recruited by the Canadian Pacific
Railway agents in England /or work
in the harvest fields of the Canadian West.
A sudden demand for wheat in
Scandinavian markets has caused
increased activity in the movement
of grain through Vancouver. Four
boats left with bulk wheat for ports
of Norway and Sweden, marking the
first direct grain shipments from
the Canadian Pacific coast to Scandinavia.
The rapid increase in the export
butter trade of Saskatchewan during the past year or two has been
the outstanding feature of the provincial dairy industry. Recently the
Saskatchewan Co-operative Creameries made a shipment of 25,000 His.
of butter to China.
The export of gold bullion, gold
coin, and fine gold bars from Canada, except as deemed advisable by
the Minister of Finance, and as
licensed by him, is prohibited until
July 1, 1924, by proclamation issued
in the current issue of the Canada
Gazette.

HIS Royal Highness the Prince ol Wales will ior a
month or ao become a simple Canadian rancher.
That he will travel incognito on his coming to Canada
dow not mean that he will travel in disguise but that he
will not take part in official functions or make official
visits, and when approached with regard to his stay in
the Canadian Dominion he has always stated that his
time will be fully taken up by the affairs of the E. P.
ranch.
The Prince of Wales exhibits a deep and marked
interest in the ranch he purchased near Calgary on his
memorable tour of the Dominion, and his desire to visit
lt k but a fresh indication of the importance he attaches
to it and the'work it is doing. Immediately after purchasing the ranch, and before returning to England, the
Prince made arrangements for the shipment of some of
~ the best stock in the British Isles to the Canadian West.
Thoroughbred horses came from the Royal stud, short-
borns from the King's farm, Shropshire sheep from the
Duke of Westminster's estate, and hardy Dartmoor
poniea from the Devon moors. The latest importation
consisted of a thoroughbred stallion and four mares
tha finest obtainable in the British Isles. "Will Somers",
which heads the stud at the E. P. ranch is a handsome
'ive year old which at three years was the winner of
''veral English classics.
Thus the Prince has demonstrated that hia purchase
of the ranch was not a matter of sentiment or com
mercial profit, but a genuine desire to foster the breeding
of better livestock in the West. His efforts bave beer
eminently successful. At sll provincial exhibitions the
animals from the High river ranch are attractive features,
and last Fall, shorthorn cattle, constituting the first
commercial sales the ranch, has effected, commanded top
prices.
Cattle from the E. P. exhibited at the stoek show
at the Calgary Stampede were heavy prise winners, and
sheep and horses from the same ranch created an un-
paralled standard.
The Royal rancher has planned to arrive at Quebec
on September 12th on the Canadian Pacific steamship
"Empress of France". The palatial liner, 18,000 tons,
which was the flag ship of the 10th Cruiser Squadron on
Northern patrol duty during the War is the most up-
to-date vessel of its type and is most suited to the accommodation of its distinguished passenger. Reconditioned after the war, this ship is one of the most
magnificent yet comfortable vessels in trans-Atlantic
service. It holds the record for oil. Ita large and comfortable suites and cabins, spacious promenade decks,
numerous and excellently appointed public rooms and
service facilities make the Empress one of the moat
popular ships in the Canadian Pacific fleet.
Breaking all 1928 passenger traffic records, the Canadian Pacific
S.S. "Metagama," westbound from
Glasgow via Belfast, docked recently at Quebec, and Montreal the
same evening, with a record number
of 382 cabin and 1,078 third-class
passengers.
"There are hundreds of first class
farm workers in Scotland anxious to
come to Canada, and thc finest material Canada could wish for, but
their wages are sufficient to barely
support them and they are unable to
accumulate funds for tlie passage."
This is the opinion of Thomas
Scotland, of the Canadian Pacific
Railway Colonization and Development office in Glasgow, who recently arrived in Canada with a
party of Scotch immigrants bound
for the western provinces.
An Off Day
"Mother," said little Bobby,
"what does father go downtown for every day?:'
"Why, he goes~downtown
to work and get money so that
Bobby can have a good dinner every," his mother replied.
A few days later, says Har
per's Magazine, when Bobby
sat down to dinner he viewed
the table with a critical eye.
Seeing none of his favorite
dishes, he disdainfully shrugged his small shoulders and
grunted:
"Hu! Fatherdidn'tdomuch

Madam,Your Age, Please!
A woman's age? The simplest thing in the world to

doubtful whether his method

he explains his method; it is
certainly amusing.

to give me her age, I told her

To J. K. L. Ross, director of thc
Canadian Pacific Railway, goes the
honor of catching the world's record
fish with rod and reel. At St.
Ann's Bay, N.S., he landed a tuna
weighing 712 pounds; length, 9 feet
2 inches; girth, 6 feet. Commander
Ross used a Vom Hofe tuna rod and
reel, No. 39 thread line, with
mackerel for bait. His catch took
three and a quarter hours to land.
The world's wheat crop this year
is estimated at 3,318,000,000 bushels,
as compared with 3,104,000,000 bushels last year, an increase of 214,-
000,000 bushels, according to figures carefully compiled by the International Institute of Agriculture
at Rome. The estimated shipments
from supply countries of the world
for this year is 690,000,000 bushels,
of which Canada is expected to
supply 290,000,000 bushels, or about
one-third. j
Canadian trade with Australia is
on the increase, according to returns made public by the Bureau of
Statistics. Canadian exports to
Australia for the twelve months
ending with June were $19,824,239
as compared with $12,200,468 for
the corresponding period ending
Juna. 1922. Canada's imports from
the Commonwealth have also increased. The imports from Australia for the last twelve months
were $1,545,829, as compared with
$1,276,871 for the year previous.

The Objects •>£ this Institution, for which Incorporation was recently ob'
tained, are: "Tj provide a Home aad ttafuge for Baby and Infant Blind; to
provide free Scientific Care, Traiiiing and Maintenance; to Save the Lives of
even a few of vio many of sush vnfortunates, who, for the lack of such service, perish evjry year; and to return these little ones to their parents, at
sohool age wilh normal, healthy bodies and sound minds."
This is a hn-ije and graatly needed Child Welfare Service. Careful enquiry
at the Government offices in the rerious 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 first home was opened in New York City; tbey have 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 claiim that it is tbe only one in the British Empire. Let us have the
SECOND in Canada. To reach this worthy end money is urgently required.
Fifty Thousand Dollars is the present objective of the Boa-id. While the
Home is to be located in Ottawa it will take in tbe Baby Blind from every
province, so that this APPEAL for funds will be Dominion wide, and an
early aud generous response is confidently expected. Cheques should be made
payable to the Canadian Blind Babies Home Association. All remittances
will be promptly acknowledged.
