HONEY AS A
PRESERVATIVE
Special Gorrespoiuleitce of The Sun.
Victoria, July 25.—If British Columbia is to witness tho completo en*
furcementof the government control
act, thn liquor control baard must
have full control of importations. So
stated Attorney General Manson recently, in replying to criticisms of
Conservative senators over the rejected amendment to the Canada tempers,
ance act.giving the province the riglit
to control importations.
Hon. Mr. Manson maintains that
it is inconsistent, to say the least, for
tha senate of Canada to be posessed
of powers of vetoing legislation passed
two years in succession by tbo house
of commons This was the fate of tlm
legislation which was ratified by the
commons, giving British Columbia
the solo right to import liquor. As
tha situation now stands, the liquor
control board must continue to fight
the huotlegger, who secures the bulk
of his waros from ox port warehouses,
either in a diroct or indirect way.
Meanwhile, tho attorney- general
asserts the last has not been heard of
the matter, and tho province must
continue fo fight for this legislation
which will result in the elimation
of all illicit dealing in spirituous
liquors.
The timber industry of British
Columbia has been placed on a sound
basis and largely through the activity
of Hou. T. D Pattullo, ministrr of
lands, and his forest branch officials.
For the first six montha of this year
the timber scale amounted to 1,206,-
936,927 board feet, as compared with
878,0*26,789 feet for the first six
months of 1922.
lt may be recalled that the period
of timber expansion in this provinoe
dates from a historic meeting in Hon.
Mr. Pattullo's office shortly after the
war. As a result of that meeting the
Associated Timber Exporters grew up,
and with the encouragement of tho
government and promised financial
backing, the latter proving unneuesss
sary, large export orders were accepted and filled. Since that time the
advance in this industry has boen
steady and rapid.
Honey was used by the ancient
Greeks and Romans to preserve fresh
fruits till they were desired. The
method used was to immerse the
fruit in honey-filled vessels which
were covered over so as lo keep out
all foreign matter. Tbis is extremely simple, but, nevertheless, reliable
aud economical
To t *st tbe worth of (his novel way
of prw-orving, a few pears were put
into a fruit jar and sufficient honey,
warmed euough to flow like oil, was
poured over tbem to completely
cover t'*em. After being in the jar
for several months they were re-
moved and found to be sound and
as solid as when placed there Vege
tables having shells can also be kept
fresh and usable by the snme treatment. Several cantaloupes were put
in a largs eaathen jar. They were
taken oat on Christmas and found
to be in as good condition as tbe
pears. It is essential not to use over-,
ripe fruit; the results will be better,
as a bard article taken out of tbe
immersion can ba kept in tbe air for
a time before deqafrMlto in.
Sweet corn from whicb the husks
bave been removed, watermelon,
and other choice articles can be put
away during tbeir season and ueed
as wished. This makes it possible to
bnve cheap fresb fruits and vegetables fur the table on Christmas,
Easter, or any otber day. None of
the noney need be wasted.
One feature of this method iB tbe
fact that tbe honey seems to seal tbe
flavor. Perhaps other ways are also
satisfactory in preserving fruits, but
this one requires tbe least effort,
suggest tbat a small amount of fruit
be preserved by honey raisers first,
so as to get tbe idea properly
grounded. I am going to try tbe experiment this coming fall on grapes,
peaches and plums. Let us all get
together and belp boost the market
for honey.—William A. Braun, in
American Bee Journal.
The Oriental problem involves a
uew menace. Action has boen taken
by the attorney general to curb the
(•rowing and sale of "sake,"' Iho favorite Japanese whisky. Protests
have been sent to Ottawa against the
trafficking carried on by Japanese
among Indian fishermen, sako being
the p rsuasive used in many instances
to induce the Indians t j part with
their fish. In future it will be very
difficult for Japanese to secure permits to manufacture the strong stnff,
which is a distillation of rice and
other ingredients. The practice of Ottawa has been to issne no permits
unless approved by the province
. affected, and Attorney-General Man-
son states he will not give consent to
auy such ventures in future.

Opinion.
Marquis Wheat
Hadn't Earned the Right
The friend of a certain captain of
industry once applied to the great
man for a job for his son, just out  of
college.
"He's a bright, honest, modest
young man," said the proud father,
"if I do say so myself."
"Modestl" snorted the industrial
captain. "What has he ever done to
be modest about)"
Man has learned to do some remarkable things with organic life,
both animal and vegetable. Ho must
do the work experimentally, for although he has found out much about
the laws that govern heredity, he can
not account for some of the things
that happen or fail to happen when
living stocks are blended, But still he
usually finds a way to get what he
wants from Mother Nature, says The
Youth's Companion. Let us consider,
for an example, Marquis wheat.
Northwestern Canada is a land of
wide spread prairies well adapted, so
far as soil is concerned, to wheat
farming and too far north for any
other crop that is nearly so profitable as wheat But you can not grow
winter wheat in Canada or even in the
northern tier of states of our own
country. The severe winters are sure
to kill any plants that have sprouted
and begun to grow in the fall. Canada must have a spring-sown wheat,
and, if its people are to take advantage of the fields that spread up to
the Peace River valley within a few
degrees of the Arctic circle, it must
be a rapidly growing variety, one that
matures within ten weeks of planting.
There are other qualities that a
useful variety must have. It must bo
ablo to rosist drought no less than
cold, for western Canada is often both
coldaud dry; if it is to sell at a good
price, it must mill well and bake well;
and it must produce a high yield to
the acre. There have always been varieties of wheat that have one or two
of those five essential qualities, but
until recently --there was none that
combined all of them. That there is
one now is owing to the long and patient labor of Dr. William Saunders
of Ottawa and his two sons.
Beginning with a Russian wheat
that will ripen in a latitude of more
than sixty degrees north, they crossed
it with the well known Red Fife
wheat, which has superior milling
qualities. When they had got a hybrid
variety that would ripen within
seventy days and make excellent flour
they bred into it a Calcutta wheat that
is notable for its productiveness and
for its power to resist drought And
iO year after year they worked away,
trying one combination after another,
selecting this aud rejecting that, finding tnat one hopeful kind of crossbreeding would not answer and that
another, tried on the off-chance, would
answer very well, until at last they
had produced a stable seed that would
produce wheat with every desirable
quality for subarctic culture. That
wheat they call Marquis,
Incidentally the Saunders established another variety that they cal led
Prelude. It will rip m in eight weeks
aud has been raised at Dawson within three degrees of the Arctic circle.
It may perhaps be grown even in the
lower Yukon valley. It does not produce heavily, however, and for that
reason is not worth planting where
any other variety will grow.
The service of the Sannders family
not only to 'their native country but
to mankind as well is worthy of more
recognition thau ib has received.
They aro men who have done better
than those whom Dean Swift praised
so highly—the men who make two
blades of grass or two ears of corn
grow where only one grew before.
They have caused whole acres of
waviug grain to spring up where before none would grow. They have
pushed forward the domain of civilized man in tha face of cold and
drought and given to Canada now
homos for its poople and uew sources
of inexhaustible wealth.
ANYOX FIRE WAS
SPECTACULAR
According to a Prince Rupert
dispatch, details ofthe recent lire al
Anyox show that the blaze began in
tbe neighboring wo ids. Tbe flames
crept toward the coke plant, wbere
the manufacture of chemicals of a
very explosive nature goes on. The
plant is located near tbe foot of a
wooded bluff. Embers from the
burning brush were curried by the
wind from an elevation right over
tbe coke plant clear across the harbor. After a bard fight the flames
were driven back from the coke
plant
The fire headed towards town but
the only buildings lost were the
Union church and the rectory. The
fire cut the mine off from the town,
as well as destroying considerable
trestling. Great concern was felt
when the fire got a grip oo the
powder house. Dynamite started
burning, finally exploded. At the
mine, women and children found
shelter in tunnels.
In town all women and children
were assembled on the beacb in
readiness to take to gas boats.

Important Discovery
The most important medical discovery in recent years, accoording
to h dispatch from London, has been
announced by Professor G. Freyer
of Oxford university. His discovery
consists in the finding of a method
of stripping germs causing diseases
from their protective coating of fat
which renders tnem resistant from
vaccine treatmets.
Hitherto tbe trouble has been
that vaccines composed of dead
baccila bave been unable to attack
tbeir living counterparts because of
tbe latter's fat coating, and tbe more
virulent tbe baccilus, as a rule, tbe
more heavy the overcoat of fat it
wears.
Professor Freyer has discovered a
method of starving tbe germs until
their fat is gone, when they become
more susceptible io tbe vaccines.
The method was tested first in
guinea pigs inoculated with tuberculosis baccilla, with the result that
some whicb were not treated died
while others treated when the disease was far advanced were completely cured, their leisons having
healed and disappeared.
At St. Mary's hospital in London
three years' tests on sixty human
subjects made by Drs. Fields and
Western brought definite improve
ment in nearly all casos. The doctors report that it is too soon to say
more than that the methods nre
extremely promising of excellent re
eults.

Notice was received of the convention of fire chiefs iu Vancouver
on July 31st to August 3rd, and a
request was read from tbe local firu
department requesting tbat Chief
Savage be sent to tbe coast city as a

was granted, tbe council voting 85]
for expenses and the time the chi
spends at tbe convention to be deducted from bis annual vacation.
The council asked the fire department to make regular quarterly reports of its operations, including

The agreement between the Vancouver, Victoria & Bistern Railway
company aud tbe city council in regard to tbe location of tbe passenger and freight stations iu thiB city

Notes, Notions and Notables
The great importance bf ethylene, the new
anaesthetic that was recently discovered by
two Chicago University doctors, lies in its
having no poisonous effects. It neither acts on
the heart nor produces nausea. The patient
may even eat aod drink before an operation
without danger or discomfort. It gives complete anaesthesia in an oxtrordinarily short
time, often within a minute.
Last summer, says the Literary Digest, a
grove of catalpa trees near Troy, Ohio, was
almost defoliated by the ravages of citerpil<
lars. Then the aeroplane came to the rescue
Flying over the grove and spilling arsenate of
lead from a hopper attached to the fuselage,
the aeroplane accomplished in one m nute
what could hardly have been accomplished by
twenty of the most powerful spraying machines. The experiment was completely successful. Nearly all of the caterpillars were
destroyed.
Plans are under way to provide for the
family of James Reid, whose patient effort
produced "Reid's Yellow Dent" corn, which
according to the Journal of Heredity, is the
most valuable kind of Indian ever produced.
The first work in creating the strain was done
by Reid's father, who began by crossing two
distinct varieties of yellow corn. From the results of that cross James produoed a variety
that proved to be adapted to a wide range of
conditions and that has served as the foundation of a number of strains. The type was so
strongly marked that iu spite of hybridization
and selection to meet various eonditions the
results of Reid's work are still evident in a
large part of '•he yellow corn now grown.
The "flivver" aeroplane has arrived. It is
Only fifteen feet long and has a wing spread of
forty feet. The motor is of twelve horsepower,
and the little machine can get up a speed of
seventy miles an hour. It will rise and land
in a comparatively narrow space and "take
off" when going only ten miles an hour. The
pilot, a Frenchman named Barbot, says that
the aeroplanes can be built in quantity for
$400 each, and that they will fly one hundred
and twenty five miles on a gallon of gasoline.
Only the other day an American jury awarded damages of $15,000 and costs of .$10,000 to
t > a woman whose husbai d had  been killed
by a bale of cotton that fell on him. Thedam-
« >es may have been ample, but the point is
that the fatal accident occurred twelve years
•i .jo and   that the case has been dawdling
through the courts ever since.   Even now another appeal is announced.   That is not  the
pr >per sort of justice;  court  procedure that
p 't-mits such   unconscionable   delays   ought
s ' nehow to be reformed _ If the woman was
fiiply entitled  to an award, she should have
h 11 it when the money was needed  to  bring
ii i the family of small children with which she
wis left. If she did not deserve  it, the case
si >uld have  been cleared from  the docket

A recent report of the progress made in
building the Pan-American railway shows,
says a news dispatch, that between 65 and 70
per cent of it has been completed. The road
will furnish a tnrough overland service from
New York to Buenos Ayres and will cover
10,116 miles. Through railway service is now
possible from New York to the Guatemala
border, and from Guatemala to the canal zone
about half of the line is finished. The longest
uncompleted stretch is from the canal zone
through Colombia, Ecuador and Peru.

Chief Justice Lemieux of Quebec told the
jury in the Delorme case that everyone, even

He said: "My friend, before the law everyone
is equal, Everyone is equal; the king himself
flinches before the law. It would bea travesty
of justice if, on account of a priestly charac
ter, an accused man were given other treat
ment than any other accused man." These instructions of Mr. Justice Lemieux will make
legal history in Canada. They will go down as
one of the most fearless assays on the majesty
of Canadian law ever uttered or written. This
dictum is something we have been waiting
for, something that will definitely and legally
establish Canadian law and Canadian justice
above every consideration of superstition, fear
or prejudice in the Dominion. Mr. Justice
Lemieux's conception of justice is a conception which no sacrifice is too great to keepun-

When the war ended Austria  was   in   the
worst of situations; no one eould see any hope
fir it, stripped, as it  was, of all its wealth-
producting territories and reduced to political
aud financial bankruptcy. Yet today  its cur-
rencp is stabilized and worth more than  that
of Germany. Its administration  is   reformed,
business is improving, a balanced budget is in
sight, and a great international loan, obtained
tbrough   the   Leaoue of   Nations,  has been
oversubscribed. If there ever was any doubt
that thc threatened bankruptcy of Germany
and the frightfully debased currency of Germany   is unncessary and deliberate, the experience of Austria proves it. Financially and
industrially Germany is twenty times stronger
than the   present  Austria.   As soon as the
German government makes up its mind to do
so it can stabilize its currency and   return  to
solvency.

The experiments which are being conducted
by entomologists here and in Trinidad, says
the London Telegraph, having resulted in  a
theory that certain insects don't like certain
colors, are expected to lead to  more experiments.   In Trinidad stables are often  painted
blue t) ward off mosquitoes. House flies don't
bke blue either, but prefer white or green. In
this connection Professor Folsom, of Illinois,
made exhaustive experimehts with  many insects.   He discovered that ants, for instance,
hate sunlight and violet light, but don't seem
able to distinguish between orange and  rsd.
Bees.gathering honey.love blue flowers. White
butterflies like white flowers and yellow ones
seek for yellow blossoms.   But no one knows
just why these insects do these things; whether
from habit or for other reasons.

Five-sixths of tho timbered area of  B. G. belongs
to the People.
Each year,  it is increasing in value as the more
accessible timber is cut.
In 1922 there was reoeived from the sale of  such
timber the sum of $620,000.
This helped to keep your taxes down, and to build
up the Province.
Green Timber is British Columbia's assurance of
Perpetual Prosperity.

The Objects of this Institution, for which Incorporation was recently obtained, are: "To provide a 'iomt nn(j H^fuge for Baby aud Infant Blind; to
provide free Scientific Care, graining and Maintenance; to Save the Lives of
even a few of the many of suoh i -'fortunates, who, for the lack of such service, perish every year; ahd to return these little ones to their parents, at
sohool age with normal, healthy bodies mid sound minds,"
This is a large and gwatly needed Child Welfare Service. Careful enquiry
at the Government offices in the various provinces reveals the fact that there
are at the presant time nearly 251) 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; they have now homes
in 13 States, all doing excellent work, In England, some time ago, Sir Arthur Pearson organized "Sunshine House," Chorloy Wood, for Blind Babies,
and he claims that it is the only one iu tho 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
Horae is to be locitod in Ottawa it wili tiko in the Biby Blind from every
province, so that this APPEAL for funds will be Dominion wide, and an
early and generous response is confidently expected. Cheques should be made
payable to the Canadian Blind Babios Homo Association. All remittances
will be promptly acknowledged

That "prospects for increased immigration into Canada are excellent" was one of the most important
statements made by E. W. Beatty,
K.C, upon his return from an extended tour of England and European capitals. The president of the
Canadian Pacific Railway believes
Canada is progressing in the matter
of immigration, but intensified efforts are essential, he considers, to
offset erroneous impressions abroad
that Canada does not require new
settlers.
A record run between Winnipeg
and Quebec was recently made by
a special Canadian Pacific train
when passengers from the Orient
were, through delay caused by landslide, in danger of missing their
connection with the C.P.S.S. "Empress of Scotland" at, the eastern
port. The train covered the 1,579
miles in a little over 36 hours,
whereas the schedule time for trains
between these two cities is 63 hours.
The passengers hnd crossed the Pacific on the C.P.S.S. "Empress of
Russia" and were taking advantage
of the 21 day Orient-to-Europe service of the Company.
The United States has invested
in Canada $2,500,000,000, according
to the Bankers' Trust Company of
New York, which has just completed a survey of Canadian industry and the amount of United States
capital invested. Of the total sum
invested, $1,200,000,000 is in bonds,
and the remainder in farms, mortgages, small businesses, industrial
enterprises, banking and private
loans. It is computed that more
than 200 branch factories were
opened in Canada by United States
concerns in 1919, and a great number in 1920 and 1921, and that late
in 1922 the number of these came to
700.
A collie dog is reported to ham

Btopped on the C. P. R. railroad
tracks in the path of a westbound

the dog threw himself against her
with sufficient impact to knock her
clear of danger, and was cut to
pieces by the train before he could
regain safety.
The girl's mother tried to discourse the dog from going when tho
daughter started for tbe store, but
he went, and was the means of saving the child's life, and died heroic

A reduction of express rates on
westward moving ■ business between
Europe and Canada was announced
by the Foreign Department of the

to a reduction of approximately
twenty per cent, on the trans-ocean

Canada Faces the Future
With Confidence
CANADIANS have always been
noted for courage, optimism
and faith in their country.
Canada was not built up by pessimists, nor will Canada continue to
develop if her people allow themselves to become croakers and
grouchers. Canada
is fundamentally
an agricultural
country. We have
a soil and climate
which can grow
the world's finest
agricultural products.
Canadian farmers who have
earned the capital
invested in their
farms out of profits
in farming are
numbered in thousands. These successful farmers
have paid off their
mortgages, stocked
their barns and
stables, bought their
machinery, made a
good living and
brought up their families. It meant hard
work, but today they
are independent.
Money in Mixed Farming
In recent years, at different points
on the prairies, oats fed to steers have
I >rought from 70c to $1.07 as against the
Fort William price of 42c per bushel,
while barley used for the same purpose
has brought as high aa 99c as against the
Fort William price of 57c per bushel.
Farmers marketing their coarse grains
in this way lower marketing cost, have
a sure market and make money on their
grain, while at the same time they market
their roughage, otherwise often wasted.
The cattle embargo is now off. Steers
are worth more money and certain to
make good money for the Canadian
farmer from now on.
Money in Pigs
The Dominion Experimental Farms
have proved by actual test that there
ls a profit in feeding pigs. Last year at
the Central Farm, Ottawa, after paying
for feea, labor, interest and depreciation,
the net profit per pig was still $4.63.
Profits from Sheep
As money-makers, sheep are hard to
beat. In every Province from Prince
Edward Island to British Columbia are
found many flocks returning generous
profits to their owners.
We Must Cut
Production Costs
Canada is meeting with the
keenest competition in the marketing of her products. To hold
her own and regain her place on
the world's market, she must reduce cost of production.
The only way to do this is to
increase production per acre, per
cow or per other unit.
Bnt improved quality, also, is
essential to meet market demands.
The quantity and the quality
of the products and the cost of
production in competitive countries is beyond onr control.
Prices of agricultural pro-tacts
are regulated by world supply
and demand
Hence, decreasing production
will not help the Canadian
farmer.
Poultry Pays
Poultry makes
money for those who
adopt modern methods, whether East or
West. Little Prince
Edward Island markets co-operatively in
carlots, shipping annually upwards of one
million dozen eggs.
The British Columbia
Co-operative Poultry
Men's Exchange
markets in the same
way, thus saving
ruinous glut in their
local market.
There is a market
for good Canadian
horses, whether light
or draught.
Grow Seed
Canada's Northern
grown seed possesses
extra vitality.   There
}s****m*m***mma*mai    is a large market for
it to the south.   Canada exports seed potatoes, but imports
other seeds.    She has the opportunity
to grow seeds for herself and for export.
The Future
Ten years from now the pessimists of
today will have been forgotten. Britain
has removed the embargo against our
cattle. She wants our beef and bacon,
our cheese, butter, eggs and apples, our
wheat and flour. As the population of
the United States increases, she will
compete less and less against us on the
British market. Eventually, she will
herself be an importer of many other
food stuffs besides wheat from this
country.
Canada has the men, the climate, the
land, the stock and the potential markets necessary for agricultural success.
Let us farm with all the industry and
science we can muster. Let's get to work
and pay our debts. Canada is moving
forward with confidence in its future.
Let us keep going ahead.
