No Apples Will Be Stored
by Associated ThisYear.
Retarns Will Give Fairly General  Satisfaction
Legislative Library
-■Jell me what you Know is true
.1 cannuesa aB well aa yoo."
Suoimerland, Nov. 13 —Only
about 300 cure ul apples held by tbe
Associated remain unsold, according
to K. J. Chambers, presideut of tbe
Associated, who addreaeed a meeting of tbe members of tbe Summer
land Cooperative Monday night.
Mr. Chambers- predicted there wonld
be fairly general satisfaction with
retuins for the 1924 crop. In some
oises tbe independents would pay t,
little belter price, but it is not f lir tu
judge the cooperative by what
tbe independents pny, but rather
tbe question should be asked, "Oo
we receive more for our fruit tlirongl
the cooperative than we would re-
oeive if tbere wen- no  cooperative?"
Practically no apples would 1^
stored this year. Experience proved
tbat with present facilities sales
should be ui.de at 50 cent per box
higher for stored apples, and with
fairly satisfactory prices now prevailing tbe Associated irefereed
cleauing up the crop.
About 250 cars had been exported
aud possibly another 50 cars -would
go overseas, a total of only about 50
per cent of last ye ir's export" It wae
Dot fair, said Mr. Chambers, to corns-
pare the returns oh export tipples
with tbose for apples sold locally.
Ouly 175c and smaller sizes went
overseas, sizes that are practically
unsaleable bere.
Tbe speaker dealt briefly upon
tbe question of policy tbat sbould
be adopted in United Kingdom
markets. Auctions had brought better prices than f.o.b. sales, and it
waa herd lo break away from tbe
auction custom of tbat country.
Mr Chambers spoke on the application being made by the Associated
for legislation to remedy certain possible technical weaknesses in 'h ■ cod
tract. Tliere was no idea of mm king
legislation for coercion or fotcing
growers to slit!* to ctfoperaliun, but

Garden of Eden—An Apple—A Canadian Ship
Above to photograph of tree de-slgnated by the Britlih Oonrnment u "Ttae of Knowled ge."
An apple from the Garden of Eden arrived in Montreal
thb week aboard the Canadian Pacific steamship
Melita. With it eame the Btory of history repeated after
I nix thousand yeare and a reprieve for sundry passengers
who nad been threatened witb irons, trial In the admiralty courte and what not.
The apple came to Montreal with Robert J. Casey
who waa a passenger aboard the "Melita." Mr. Casey iB a
well-known member of the staff of the Chicago News and
among the books of his authorship are "The Land of
Haunted Castles" and "The Lost Kingdom of Bur-
Saudy."   He was on the way home from a trip through
vrla to Damascus and Bagdad taken for the purpose
of gathering material for another book.
Mr. Casey said that the apple was one of a pair
broughtfrom Quernah the traditional site ofthe Garden of
Paradise at the junction of the Tigris and Euphra<,f«
rivers ln Mesopotamia. It was placed in a stateroom
with Babylonian bricks and other relics from the oracle
ef the human race and did not figure ln the log of the
"Melita" until the ship had been four days out of Cherbourg.   Then it disappeared.
The owner complained to Commander Clew,
"I regret this unfortunate incident," said th* Captain,
"But of course you must have read the notice on the card
given you as you came aboard: The company will not
< he responsible for apples and other valuables ur.less they
are deposited with the purser.   Ab it stands at present
this looks like a matter for the appellate  court. But of
* course we shall see what can be done about it."
Three women named Eve and a man named William
Adamson from British Columbia were found on the
passenger list and they fell under suspicion immediately.
Attempts to establish alibis were as fruitless as they had
been before Noah built tbe ark. Adamson admitted that
he was the tenant of a cabin on the same deck as that
occupied by tke apple and he was summoned for an interview with the captain. He was a technical prisoner when
the "Melita" reached Belle Isle and might bave been
landed in shackles at Quebec had it not been for an un
expected denouement. A room steward, penitent but
brave appeared before the officers substituting for angels
with flaming swords.
"If it's an apple you're looking for I think I can find it
for you," he volunteered. "It looked like just an ordinary
apple and what with the way the women passengers are
always wanting things there was no way of telling about
it — you know how it is. I had brought a dish of fruit
into that cabin the morning all the fuss started and when
I was taking out the dishes some time afterward it was
only natural-like that I should have made a mistake.
I picked up that apple "
"And so it's lost,   gasped the Investigators.
"That's where you're wrong," declared the steward
triumphantly, "It's found. As soon as I heard of the
howl I traced that apple. I followed its trail back to the
pantry and thence to the cold storage room. And this
morning I discovered it. One of the chefs had been in just
before me. But I was determined. I went right out after
him And I found the apple It's in here...."
And with a magnificent air he lifted a napkin from a
large pan of apple sauce.
Another apple, later found concealed in a locked
trunk, will be presented to the Field Museum of Chicago.
The tree from which the fruit was picked has recently
been designated as the "Tree of Knowledge" by the
British Government substantiating an Arab legend of
long standing. The document authenticating the claims
of Quernah as the site of Eden is a record of court
martial, a copy of which was brought back with the
The case in point was that of Thomas Rogers, a
sergeant in the British Flying corps stationed in Iraq
since the armistice. Rogers, climbing the tree to have his
picture taken, broke off one of the branched and was
arrested by the Arab police.
The verdict finds him "guilty of having broken a limb
from the tree of knowledge in the Garden of Eden" and
fixes his fine at "one month's pay," a liglitor sentence

Gen. John J. Pershing: "While wo are
probably too close to the war to definitely to
judge of its general benefits to mankind, yet
the victory did result in preventing domination by autocracy,with all its disastrous effects
upon civilization, and the evidence is clear
that the free peoples of the world will unite in
resisting such dominating djominotion."

that as a result of the world war tin- world
has lieen made'safe for democracy,' it is apparent that the American nrincipl'e that 'governments derive their just powers from the

Wonld you expect a woman who had adopt
ed as her slogan,   "Babies  before  business,"
to be written up in  all sorts of magazines as
an unusually successful geological enigneer?
Ten years ago, when the two Gould kiddies
were healthy little school children, Nina S.
Gould   went  back to  her job of being an assistant geological engineer.    In  the office of
Gould & Gould she has entire charge of re
ports, maps, cost estimates and enough  other
technical details to make the average woman
—or man—blink.    She is an honorary mem
ber of Chi Epsilon, a fraternity for women.do
ing goological work.
Mrs. Gould found time, as her children's interests and her own led her outside home
walls, to take an active interest first in the
kindergarten club and then in the school patrons' club, to organize two ('amp Fin-
groups, and to become an active member in a
social study club.
At present she serves as the business worn
en's representative on the board  of directors
of Y. W. G. A., as vice president of the  civic
committee of the cham er of commerce, keeps
up church and Sunday school work  and  presides over the Town club with 70 picked busi
ness   women   members   and  an  active city
beautiful   program.    Also   she   goes  to bali
gamos with the children!
Its hardly fair to call Oklahoma City with
its 110,000 people a gopher prairie, even
though the Tow i club is sail struggling with
untidy chicken yards inside the city limit.
Anyway Mrs. Gould's answer to "Would ynu
like to move to New York?" was "No,"
But a girl just starting? "A large city is too
lonesome," advises this woman of many friends,
"for the girl just going into business. She has
far more opportunity for make friends in the
smaller place. And-as to success, if a girl is
happy outside of business hours, she makes a
more efficient business gir'.
''A smaller city is the best place to live,
(which means to live, laugh and work), to rear
a family, and a place where one may have a
chance to grow into the life of a community;
that is to become an integral part of the
growth, development of the neighborhood, the
city and the state."
Widely distributed throughout the country,
a species of poiso . ivy is fouud which climbs
up the tali trunks <f trees and in and out
among the bushes along the road, luxuratng
in fence comers and even thriving in wastes
of sand where little other vegetation can exist.
Flattery is having your secret opinion of
yourself expressed in the language.
It has been estimated thai, tbe annual loss
in Canada to field and orchard and garden
crops, due to destructive inseel.*;, is mure than
$200,000,000. The consumption of insects by
birds prevents this loss from being far greater-
and this forms one of thestrung arguments for
protection of insectivorous birds.
An attack by a cougar, ono of very fen m\
record, has been reported from the Olympic
national forest, western Washington, bv Glen
Merchant, a former forest guard, Mr. Merchant .says the cougar sprang fioni s une brush
and tore off ita trousers leg and severely
scratched him. He hit the cougarbri tlie nose
• with a fishing rod, and ran. The beast did
not follow.
Establishment of an after-dinnei express at

Items Taken From The Qrand Porks Sun ior the Corresponding
Week Twenty Yean Ago
Many amusing incidents occurred in the
city last Thursday during the federal elections.
Early in tlie uiurniug a prominent Conservative entered the (Jlub and, with all the dignity
he was able to coaiuuind.remarked: "By Jove,l
feel as ii something was going to happen today. Give me the best drink you have in the
house." At 10 o'clock in the evening the man
returned and, in a considerably less self-
important tone of voice, said: "Great Caesar,
something did happen. Give me a plain beer."
We understtiid that oxception has been
taken loan article which appeared in Tues
tJay's .Sun, in which, the coinplainaut says, we
"made him appear foolish before the people
of Grand Forks " He is uiistak' n. Don't
blame us; providence attended to his case long
before we knew the aggrieved gentleman.
Fools are horn such, not made.
Acting on the suggestion made in the last
issue of The Sun, Lew Johnson, manager of
the Biden opera house, tmnounces that that
popular amusement resort will hereafter be
known as the Grand Forks opera house.
It is announced that the Boundary Falls
smelter will blow in its second furrace on the
first of December.
In the American presidential election Roosevelt received 343 electoral votes and Parker
A. A. Frechette and Miss Hemelda Gauthier were married in the Catholic church on
Tuesday by Kev. Father Bedard.
It has been announced that H. 3.
Logan, M.P. for Cumberland, will
accompany the Minister of Trade
and Commerce to the West Indies
te negotiate a new reciprocal treaty
with those islands. The general
purpose of the visit is to admit
West Indian commodities free in return for Canadian manufacturers
receiving similar treatment, the products of the two countries being
entirely dissimilar. It is also hoped
to build up a direct system of importations through Canadian ports
instead of through the United
States, by which route a great proportion of West Indian product!
now atvtut bo Canada.

National Park, is one of the
natural wonders of the entire
Rocky Mountain region. A vast
cleft in the solid rock, reaching a
depth of some 200 feet, and so narrow in places that one may step
•cross it easily, draws from the
tourist expressions of awe and
wonder at the power of accumulated forces of water.
Tumbling headlong down the
narrow gorge goes the Maligne
Kiver, mysterious as to its source
and for part of its length a subterranean stream, on its way to
Join the quieter waters of the
Athabasca far below. At times on
its passage through the narrow
gorge, it tumbles more than one
hundred feet hi a sheer drop, its
eddies being churned to foam as
the waters beat a tattoo   against
the rocky sides of the canyon on
their downward leap.
From the footbridges which span
the narrow gash in the solid rock,
tourists watch entranced the effect bf the waters on the rocky
sides. Here and there, seemingly
tired of the effort to stand upright
through the centuries, the sides of
tha gorge appear to have leaned
toward one another, until an intervening rock cast itself into the narrow spate and held the walls apart.
Trunks Of trees and jutting rocks
form footbridges across the chasm
a hundred feet below the tourists-
feet, as they stand admiring the

Maligne Canyon Is a mecca for
visitors to Jasper Park Lodge, the
splendid log-cabin hostelry of the
Canadian National Railways, and
rightly so, for there are few na
tural rock formations to equal in
interest those found in the canyon
The Devil's Potholes, curious indentations in the solid rock over
which the Maligne River flowed before the Canyon was worn to its
present depth, are holes worn deep
in the surface rock by the action
of swirling flood waters, when a
largii stone has been whirled round
and round in an untiring circle
until the stone itself was worn
small and round, anil deep circular
holes have been ground into the
surface of the rock, remaining as
mute testimony to the power of
rusl ing waters.
Maligne Canyon, while one of the
most wonderful formations to be
found in the Rocky Mountains, is
but one of the many natural attractions of Jasper National Park.
In addition there are the snowcapped peaks oh every side; the
glaciers of Mount Edith Cavell and
The Canyon in Winter
the mountains surrounding Maligne Lake, the Hoodoos of the
Cavell motor highway and hundreds of others. Wild animal life
is abundant, and the calm peace of
the out-of-doors is assured to tha
tired holiday-seeker.
And in addition to the natural
beauties of the Park, a commodious
log cabin bungalow hotel-, with excellent cuisine and all the comforts
of the modern city hotel, provides
a starting point from which parties
may radiate by motor or pack-
horse or afoot to travel by motor
road or pack trail into the very
heart of the wilderness. It was
the ddition of the comforts and
conveniences of Jasper Park Lodge
to the beauties of Jasper National
Park which caused one noted
American traveller to exclaim: "At
last, I have found the place, where
God and man go fifty-fifty te
produce perfection."

Russia will never again rival Canada as a wheat exporter, according to L. W. Lyde, Professor of
Geography at London (England)
University. He believes that grain
growing in future lies with the
Canadian farmer. Russia cannot
properly supply its own needs. Prewar export of wheat was purely artificial, drawn, n it from a natural
surplus, but fro; i the needs of a
•csry poor and  ignorant peasantry.
