Fruit Movement From
British Columbia Is
Heavy, But Prices Are
Calgary, September 13 —Weather
varied, cool at nights with slight
frost. Thn market has steadied in
Washington for peaches aDd prunes
and advances have been made from
5 to 10 cents per crate. Yakima
Bartlett pears (except those in storage) are over. Spokane quotes $175
per box for what ihey have left.
The fruit movement from British
Columbia is heavy. British Colum
bia shippers are hindered in ship
ping cars owing to the slow ripening
of the Blberta peaches. We eee
some ou this market from Osoyoos
of good quality but small in size'
Peach orchards should be well atn
tended to in cultivation and fertilizing, as our sizes are usually under
the Washington average. A car of
Bartlett pears arrived in Calgary
late last week from Hatzic; these
were marked No. 2. The pack was
poor, both No. l's aud No. 3's being
included in it; tbey retailed at $1.95
to $2.00 per box. More atteution to
pack and grade is needed. Vernon
shipped some No. 1 and No 2 Burt
letts, and our opinion of tbem is
that the No. 2 wer* the beet; the No
l's wero not in that class. The best
Bartletts that we have seen on this
market were shipped from tbe
Oknanagan valley. The variation
in quality is so great that it be
comes impossible to fix a value on
the best or. the worst. British Columbia plums are offered in volume,
mostly undersixed for the variety
and priceB are low. Wealthies are
arriving in bulk a little off in color,
due to picking early. Apart f om

Beekeepers' Calendar       i
for British Columbia
Issued by the Department of Agri'
culture, Victoria, B. C.
SEPTEMBER—All colonies requir
ing it should be fed up for winter
with thick syrup, so that the bees are
able to store it in the combs and seal
it over before the nights get too cold.
Combs containing fruit juice or honey
dew, which are fatal to bees in winter, sliould be removed and may he
kept for spring feeding.
Syrup for Winter Food—Two parts
of white granulated sugar to one
part of water, by volume, and boiled
for about 15 minutes. Add 1 oz. of
cream of tartar for each 40 pounds of
sugar before boiling point is reached.
The latter helps to invert the sugar
and retard granulation. Keep well
stirred until sugar is dissolved. Burnt
sugar is injurious to bees. Give syrup
warm, and in the evening cover feeder well to retain the heat. A level-lid
can with about twenty holes pierced
in the lid, large enough for a pin to
pass through, and inverted over feed-
hole in quilt, makes an excellent
feeder. Six deep Langstroth frames
filled with sealed stores are required
to last the bees through the winter.
The following is the minimum

The banquet hall was
adorned with many boautiful

of the little college was called
upon to respond to a toast.

"What need is there of
these painted beauties when
we have so many with us at
the table?"
After the Fake Medicines Fail the
Doctor Is Called In
Exhibits Will Be Held in
Skating Kink and Races
at Ball Grounds in.
West End
Nearly all the arrangements for the fall fair, to be
held in this city on the 28th
and 29th inst., have now
been completed, and the
event will rival if not surpass
pre-war efforts in this direction. With the completion
of the sports program, which
is promised in a few days, the
preliminary work of the fair
will be finished.
As in former years, the
agricultural, horticulture], industrial and other displays will
be made at the skating rink,
while the races and ajhletic
sports will be held at the
baseball gronnds in Columbia.
The fruit in the valley is of
a very good quality this year,
and some exceptionally fine
exhibits may be lookod for.
A new feature not seen at
previous fairs here will prob-
a bly be an elaborate exhibit
by the beekeepers of the valley. As this is an "infant"
industry in   the    district,   it
should prove instructive as
well attractive ,and interesting.
Now that the honey crop of 1922
is practically all gathered it is time
for the beekeeper to begin his prep*
aration for the crop of 1923. The
beekecpers's success depends largely
upon the condition of his bees in the
early spring just after coming out of
winter quarters, and tbis condition
in turn depends upon tbe preparation for tbe winier.
Tbree things are essential for successful wintering, namely, strong
colonies consisting mainly of young
bees, sufficient wholesome stores,
and adequate protection from the
cold. To neglect any one of these
factors is to invite failure.
By strong colonies we mean populous colouies. A colony can not be
too strong for the winter. These
bees must be comparatively young
in order to live tbrough the winter
until brood rearing is safely commenced the following spring. To get
the hives filled with young bees
every colony must be headed with a
young, vigorous queen during Au
gust and September; therefore all
colonies containing old or failing
queens sbould be requeened uot later
than the last week in July. Colonies
with bees covering less tban eight full
sized Langstroth frames at the beginning of October sbould be united.
A colony of bees should have not
less than forty pounds of stores to
carry it through the winter until
new honey is coming in in the
spring. The honey stored in the
brood chamber is usually of uncertain quality and deficient iu quantity. It should, therefore, be supplemented   witb   either   good   clover
Canada's Dollar at Par
or buikwheat honey, or better still,
with a syrup made of two parts of
pure, granulated sugar lo one part
water. The colony should be given
enough honey or sugar made into
syrup to bring tbe starts up' to tbe
required weight. Even if a colony
bas enough natural stores in tbe
brood chamber it is advisable to
give it at least ten pounds of sugar
made into syrup in order to post
pone or minimize the consumption
of poor honey and thus delay a possible attack of dysentery.
There are jwo methods of protecting the bees during the winter—
either to place tbem in a cellar or to
pack tbem in cases outside. For
outside wintering the bees sbould
be placed in the cases during the
latter part of September or early in
October and tbe packing placed on
tbe bottom ind all fonr sides. The
bees should be fed tbe required
amount of stores as rapidly as pos
sible, tben tbe top packing is put in
place. Tbese bees will require no
further attention until tbe following

A city business man was
very keen on having proficient
clerks in his employ. Before
a clerk could enter his olliee
he was required to pass a
written examination on his
knowledge of business.
At one of the examinations
one of the questions was:
"Who formed the first company?"
A certain bright youth was
a little puzzled at this, but
was not to be floored. He

a company while the rest of

The study of geography is more important
today than ever before, and  the .present de
mands   upon   the kuowlodge   which   pupils
should gain in the geography class   are more
pressing than ever before.   A large number of
Canadian youths are entering iuto some business that deals with the other parts   of thc
earth or other parts of our own land.    Great
corporations, banks and business houses are
expanding their lines to include foreign trade.
Certain banks have found it necessary to establish their own classes in geography so that
their employees may have an adequate  training in the fundamentals of this science.   The
pre-war consular reports  of the  government
spoke  of the ignorance which business firms
displayed toward their foreign trade. This indifference, if not ignorance, of the exporter
toward the physical conditions of other lands
probably accounts in part for the loss of foreign markets. The study of regional geography
as now conceived will rectify the situation.

Mr. Herrick praised France's efforts toward
reconstruction, saying that it i.s ouly the reticence of French bankers and business men
about facts and figures that has prevented
most Americans from know ng that the nation has spent 93,000,000 francs on restoration
work while awaiting repasations payments.
"France has no unemployment problem and
is hard at work," he said. "France's strength
is in her farming, and the crops this year,
while under the bumper wheat orop> of 192-1,
is turning out better than was expected.
American tourists in France see the undaunt

Sir Thomas Lipton, who has failed in four
attempts to win the America's cup, the blue
ribbon trophy of international yacht racing,
is coirTing to this side of the Atlantic this
month to make what he terms "a final effort
to get the bloomin' mug." Sir Thomas, who
has monopolized the challenging for the historical cup over a > period of twenty-three
years, and whose sportsmanship has won him
the friendship of thousands of Americans,
wants to win the cup before he dies. It is his
hobby in life. After his Shamrock IV was defeated by the Resolute.the American defender,
in 1920, the Ulster tea merchant said: "I
probably have more cups than any other
yachtsman in the world. I have sailed in Germany, France, Spain, England, Scotland' and
Ireland, have won prizes in all parts of the
universe, and I am mighty proud of them, but
I'd swap the lot for that cup I've tried four
times to get' With just what kind of craft
the Irish sportsman will elect to challenge is
not known, but it is said he wants to change
from a sloop to a schooner.
John Bassett Moore is the American  delegate to the International Court of Justice at
The Hague. He is one who thinks that human
nature must be made over before there can be
permanent universal  peace,   He  says:   "The
world is the same evory where.  Human nature
is thc same.   It is  this same human  nature
which balks the passage of peace.   So long as
we love glory, so long as.we worship bravery,
so long as we. thrill at the call of battle, so long
will we have war.    In the great span  of life
we make just so much progress in each  generation. Wo creep forward a little, make  our
seemingly important strides in progress, when
a new condition arises, and back we  slump—

of science, the efforts of the laboratory, all are
lost in the  answer   to   the  cry   for justice.

The physician of the future will become
less and less a disease specialist and more and
more a health specialist. He will be a health
organizer. His business will consist not so
much of treating the sick as of keeping people
well. He will doubtless be as interested iu research as he is today, but his research will not
lie limited to the discovery of somo new disease or a new treatment of the old ones. He
will be interested even more in the discovery
of new ways to let men's w'll to live assert itself. How long should a man be able to live?
There i.s no telling. Man may live just as long
as he can keep renewing the health tissues of
his body, so long as he ean successfully expel
all the toxins, avoid disease and injury and
replace promptly the wasted substances of
each worn-out cell. Setting any particular
limit, in our present state of ignorance, seems
to me quite unscientific. If the medical profession once applies itself to the task of extending human life, there is no reason to

To most people the connecting or disconnecting of a telephone seems a simple
operation of installing or removing the
instrument. As a matter of fact, in every
case it necessitates changes in the cables
and wires overhead or underground. It
also "necessitates changes in central office
wires and switchboard connections; in
subscribers' accounts and directory iist-
ings; and frequently requires new "drop"
lines from open wires or cables. The
problems of station movement are among
the large problems of telephone service.
Because of the double operation of disconnecting and reconnecting, the work
iuvolved is .often twice as great as in the
case of new subscribers.

good old Quebec, the aity he loved
and cared for during his lifetime,
and upon which was reflected so
much of the glory he gathered by his
rapid ascent in the hierarchy of the
Catholic Church. Cardinal Taschereau was appointed to that high
state in 1886 and he died in 1897. He
was succeeded by Mgr. Begin, who
'was later awarded the scarlet robes
»( office.
It had long been the earnest desire of the citizens of Quebec to have
the memory of their beloved cardinal
recalled in a more material fashion,
and for that purpose a public subscription had been organized some
time ago to defray the cost of such
a memorial. When sufficient funds
had been collected, a contest in
which many noted sculptors from
America and the old world participated, was held, and from the models
submitted by these artists, a committee selected the design of the
Statue which will later be unveiled
on the Place de la Basilique. in
front of the famous old temple of
Its author is a French sculptor
of renown, Mr. Andre Vermare of
Paris, who has beep engaged in
making many of France's best known
monuments erected in recent years.
One of them recalling the fame of
the "Blue Devils," the celebrated
Alpine regiment of France, stands on
the summit of GuetwiUer and is much
Shortly after the decision of the
committee was made known, Mr.
Andre Vermare landed in Quebec
with Mr. Maxiine Roisin, the architect who is going to design the
pedestal of the Taschereau memorial.
Mr. Roisin, also, has attained a great
reputation in his country as a master
of his art. His last work of importance is probably the triumphal arch
which will soon be built on the road
from Bar-le-Duc to Verdun, to immortalize the glorious stand of the
"Poilu" on what was then known a>
the  "Hell  of Verdun."
The two French artists, who left
Quebec for their own country a
short time ago to proceed with their
work on the Taschereau memorial,
took the opportunity of their stay In
the old city of Champlain to collect
some valuable Information regarding
the life, ways and character of the
I late cardinal, such Information being
indispensable lo give a true interpretation of his personality. The
location of the monument was also
discussed, and il was agreed that it
would stand in the little park
stretching in front of the Basilica, at
the end of the Rue de la Fabrique.
While in Quebec, Mr Vermare and
Mr Roison were the guests at a great
banquet given in tlieir honour at the
Garrison Club, al which most of the
prominent people of the ancient capital attended In answer to various
speeches of welcome by Hon. L. A.
Taschereau, Mgr Marois, Mr. Heniri
Gagnon, and others, Mr. Vermare
saiil how he and his companion were
pleased to be in Quebec and how
they had heen impressed by the welcome extended to them He also
had eloquent words to express his
admiration for the picturesqucness of
the city and for the congenial lios-
pilality of ils citizens. He said he
hoped to come back for the unveiling of the statue, which will take
place on June  17th, 1923.
For Men Over Sixty
Eminent Physician
Gives Prescription
A. Lapthqrn Smith, a distinguished London physician, bas recently
published a useful volnme entitled
"How to be Useful and Happy
from Sixty to Ninety, from which
tbe following commandments are
1. Cut down the amount of food.
Three meals are better th >u four;
but two are better than tbree.
2. Increase the amount of water
Neither a city nor a citizen can run
a drainage system without a water*
3. Two movements a day are betx
tor than one every two days; the
colon bacilli in the large intestines
are the principal cause of old age.
i. If you waut to keep young,
keep iu company with young people.
5. Keep busy. Work bard six
days and rest hard on  the  seventh.
7. When you see an easy chair
on a sunny morning keep away
from it and go for] a walk instead.
The heart grows stronger by use and
weaker by idleness.
7. Don't change your lifelong
habits at sixty. If you have been a
smoker all your life, keep on smoking in moderation, and if you have
been a moderate drinker all your
life, keep on drinking in moderation
(if you can get it).
8. Never exceed one pound of tobacco a week. Never drink alcohol
except at meals and never before 6
p.m., and always well diluted witb
9. When you are over sixty, don't
try to warm a cold bed with your
own heat. It is cheaper and quicker
to put a big hotwater bottle in the
10. When you reach sixty, if you
have been careless of your appear-
ance before, begin to dress well. It
makes you look better and feel better
and you are as well as you feel, A
few warm baths a week will keep
your skin young.
11. If when you reach sixty, you
have a beard three feet long, begin
cutting it oil one inch a day. Id
thirty-six weeks you will be dowD
to the skin. Tben shave and look
12. Don't worry.
13. If you have a big business,
get some young horses to null the
wagon and vou six on the seat and
drive; but don't get off the wagon.
14. Do not turn your honae into
a museum of fine arts nml antiques.
HappinesB, as a rule, is in inverse
proportion to the number of useless
articles you own.
16. If you have not a business
when you are sixty, either get one
or get a hobby.
17. Cancer, pneumonia and influenza are the principal causes of
death between sixty end ninety. I
you bave them, don't give them to
your friends: and if you haven't got
them, don't let your friends give
them to you.
17. Don't go to funerals. The
funeral of your friend is sometimes
followed by your own.

they are looking for people with a
poor circulation. A fatty heart is a
weak heart; keep thin. Tbey are

the efforts of the railways to prevent them, accidents are occurring

their cars from a great deal of

cases where it i.s difficult to .avoid
accidents, but most accidents that
happen are avoidable. Particulars
