THE CALGARY
FRUIT MARKET
Calgary, Sept. 7.—Weather con-
tidues fine. The supply of fruit and
vegetables is in excess of demand,
especially in vegetables. Ripe tomatoes from British Columbia are
being sold in Calgary at same price
as they are quoted at shipping
point. Over 4000 boxes are being
offered today at 75c per cent.
Importation from tbe south is
lighter this week. Peaches and
prunes will airive from the United
States in heavier volume next week.
The railway strike in the States has
greatly demoralized tbe western
market. Fruit sold at a price iB pro
tected. All shipments are being adjusted on arrival practically to the
satisfaction of Ihe consignee. British
Columbia Italian] prunes, plums
and peaches are now rolling in
mixed cars to tbe prairies. Very
little pickling is being done, even ut
tbe low prices wbich green tomatoes,
cucumbers and green peppers are
being sold at.

For Men Over Sixty
Eminent Physician
Gives Prescription
A. Lapthorn Smith, a distinguished London physician, has recently
published a useful volnme entitled
"How to be Useful and Happy
from Sixty to Ninety, from whicb
tbe following commandments are
culled:
1. Cut down the amount of food,
Tbree meals are better th<n four;
but two are better than tbree.
2. Increase tbe amount of water.
Neither a city nor a citizen can run
a drainage system without a water"
works.
3. Two movements a day are bet*
ter than one every two days; the
colon bacilli in the large intestines
are the principal cause of old age.
4. If you want to keep young,
keep io company witb young people.
5. Keep .busy. Work hard six
days and rest hard on  the seventh.
7. When you see an easy cbair
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 bave
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 with
water.
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 u big hotwater bottle in tbe
bed.
10. When you reach sixty, if you
have been careless of your appearance 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 tbree feet long, begin
cutting it off one inch a day. In
thirty-six weeks you will be down
to the skin. Then shave and look
young.
12. Don't worry.
13. If you have a big business,
get some young horses to pull tbe
wagon and you six on the  seat and
"Billy," Quebec's tramp dog, is
still seeking his lost soldier master.
When the boys came hack on the
'Empress of France'' he and "Billy"
jeeame separated and "Billy" lias
been looking for him ever since He
meets the "Empress" each time sht
jrrives at Quebec, sniffs at the pis-
icngers who come down the gangs/ay. walks away with an air of dis-
ippointmeiil and then waits for the

Iriend but no man's dog for long.
'Billy" lias as many names as he has
iriendb, answering with a wag of his
ail to "Bum," "Tramp," "Bijou,"
'Rags," "Paddy," etc Now and
hen an admirer takes "Billy" home.
but in a few days the little wire-haired terrier is nobody's dog again—nobody's but the lost master's—and is
back on the docks once more to meet
the  ships  and  him.
How "Billy" knows when a passenger ship is due is a mystery of the
Quebec water front, but know ht
does. He is as regular and prompt
as thc customs' men, greets the incoming steamer with joyous harking,
and after he has bossed the job of
plating the great hawsers which
moor her alongside the pier, he dashes to the gangway and looks for a
once familiar figure khaki-clad. Perhaps some day the lost master wil
return. And if he does, faithful
Billy" will be there.
drive; bui don't get off the wagor.
14. Do not turn your home into
a museum of fine arts and antiques.
Happiness, as a rule, is in inverse
proportion 10 the number of useless
articles you own.
16. If you have not a business
when you are sixty, either get one
or get a bobby.
17. Cancer, pneumonia and influenza are the principal causes of
death between sixty end ninety. If
you have them, don't give tbem to
your friends: and if you haven't got
Ihem, don't let your friends give
them to you.
17. Dou't go to funerals. The
funeral of your friend is sometimes
followed by your own.
18. Microbes are every where and
they are looking for people with a
poor circulation. A fatty heart is a
weak heart; keep tbin. Tbey are
a so looking for pale people; keep
rosy.

Vancouver, Sept. 7.—"The
right of way and tracks of the
Pacific Great Eastern rail
way are in excellent condition," sjated Premier Oliver
on his return last night from
an inspection trip over the
railway. The premier was ac
companied by A. B. Buck-
worth, general manager of
the railway, and according to
the premier, the trip was the
usual routine inspection of
the road.
"We are collecting data on
the use of gasoline-propelled
cars on the Squamish branch
ofthe line," saip the premier,
"but as yet have made no decision with regard to equipping ofthe railway exclusively with these cars."
Asked whether he considered it advisable to abandon
the road as recommended iu
the Sullivan report, the premier replied that he had not
made any decision on the
matter yet.
"You are asking me to answer a question which I have
not yet decided for myself,"
was all that the premier would
say.

Popular C.P.R. Official Receives New and Important Post
ALLAN  OAMBBOX
A joint circular issued by the Canadian Pacific Railway and Canadian
Pacific Steamships, Limited, announces
that Mr. Allan Cameron has been appointed Oriental Manager, with office
at Hong Kong to take up his duties
on October 1st.
Mr. Cameron joined the C.P.R. at
Winnipeg in 1887. At various timet
he has held important positions at
Vancouver, Victoria, Portland, Oregon, London, England, and New York.
As Superintendent of the Lands Branch
of C.P.R. activities he was very successful, and takes up his new and responsible position with the good wishes

Commencing'iOctober 1, all
potatotoes put on the market
for sale by fanners and dealers will come under the compulsory grading regulations of
the 'Dominion government,
and; wholesalers have been
slow to negotiate sales for
spuds until the regulations go
into force for fear of having
ail the grading work to do.
The only grading British
Columbia tubers have undergone in the past was when
they were shipped out of the
country and then came under
the export regulations and
were called upon to meet competition from grading countries in foreign market's.
Grading will affect the producer of potatoes more this
year than for many seasons
in the past, as the crop of
spuds for 1922 has proved
exceptionally small, thus
bringing them into the lower
grades.
Ashcroft and Lillooet potatoes will hardly be affected
by the new legislation, as the
potatoes from these districts
are nearly all large, and this
year lack of rain will have no
affect, as the irrigation system of the highlands kept
these spuds in perfect condition.
Standardizing the barrel
for potato shipment will have
no affect in British Columbia
as nearly all the spuds grown
here are marketed in sacks,
crates or bulk, only export
spuds going into crates.
The new barrel legislation
is to bring the barrels of the
the eastern provinces into line,
especially in the Atlantic seaboard trade.

OFFICE:    COLUMBIA AVENUE AND LAKE STREET.
FEIDAY, SEPTEMBER 8, 1922
The result of the vote on the railway agreement on Tuesday seems to indicate that too
many of the ratepayers paid too serious attention to the specious contention of the
oracle of misrepresentation, which has in the
past been an ardent supporter of "white elephants" that have caused our city to make
crab-progress and made many of the citizens
of the valley financially poorer. No benefit
to the city as a whole can be derived from the
adoption ofthe agreement, while the ultimate
result may bo disastrous and far-reaching.
Appearances are sometimes deceitful. The
poppy's beautiful perals conceal a subtle and
deadly poison.
Grand Forks now holds the unique posi
tion of taxing one railway company's property,
while its competitor is allowed to go tax-free.
It required long and searching discussions in
Socrates' school of philosophy to determine
what constitutes justice. Would it not be
wise for some of our citizens to start a similar discussion?
The Canadian Pacific sail way passenger
train was still able to blow its whistle as it
entered the city Wednesday morning. But it
wasn't a very boisterous whistle.
About the only strike needed in this coun
try at present to equalize prices is a strike of
the farmers.
What will be the steps nocessary to place
aerial touring on a par with road touring?
The answer is that this evolution will take
place by accomplishments paralleling those
which led to the rapid growth of the automobile industry and the consequent extensive
use of the motor for touring purposes. It is
an established fact that once a mechanism has
bee. developed beyond the experimental stage,
its commercial development is carried out
along certain well-defined lines, and this wil
apply as well to the airplane as it has to th e
automobile, radiophone, phonograph, etc. In
the case of the airplane, however, we have a
somewhat distorted perspective of its growth,
due to the tremendons impetus given to its
development during the world war. What we
are incliued to lose sight of is that the war
plane was more or loss of a specialized development, in which not the slightest 'attention
vas paid to commercial or civic requirements.
We are only now beginning to appreciate that
t-he enormous growth of aviation during the
war represented what might be termed a false
start toward the era of aerial traasportation,
md that in many instances it will be necessary
io retrace our steps and find the correct path.
So Shall We Return Restored  to  Face
Anew* the Responsibilities of Life
This is the time of the year when the call of
the wild is heard by the city dweller even
above the roar of the istruggle for existence,
says John Dickiuson Sherman, a well known
Chicago writer. The call is pretty much the
same to all of us. Nature's persistent message,
which we can not escape, is something like
this:
•'Come and play! Drop work! You have
lived the strenuous life long enough. You
know the penalty I exact for all work and no
play. Pause, take breath, relax, rest!"
HYes, the call is much the same to all of us.
But its interpretation varies according to our
knowledge and experience. Those of us are
fortunate to whom the call means one thing
only—whether it is the fashionable summer
resort, or the automobile tour, or foreign
travel, or the magic glow of the camp fire upon
the gleaming tent, or the lure of the rushing
stream where hide the trout, or the spell of
the mountain trail to the peaks of everlasting
snow.
But many of us are not so fortunate. > To
the unfortunate the call bears no clear message
They rejoice at the prospect of a holiday, but
they do not know where or at what to play.
They do not know what to do with their playtime. The annual spectacle of a people at
play includes the saddening sight of thousands
getting little enjoyment and less .iest—wasting
thoir precious vacation days.
Let us not be of those unfortunates. Let us
mix brains with- our play. Let us put common
sense into our vacation plans. Let us profit by
the successes and failures of past vacations.
Let us play temperately. It is easy to make
the play too strenuous. On the other hand,
mere dling does not bring rest as compared
with a change of occupation in different environment.
In' short, the right kind of vacation is a
godsend, while the wrong kind may be
worse than none. To come back from our
playtime to rest up from our play—that's one
thing. To return with renewed strength and
courage—that's another and a very different
story. Let us therefore play wisely. So shall
we return to our work refreshed and restoijed
and with determination to face anew the t&
sponsibilities of life.

SAFETY FIRST
"Safety iirst" is a good maxim in most
things,but particularly so in relation to the investment of money. Tlie rich may afford to
speculate and take the risks attendant on
high rates of interest. Those whose means are
moderate must be careful to see that there is
absolute security in their investmnnts. For
such people tliere is no other form of invest
ment whicli takes such a high rank, combining absolute security with liberal interest, as
the bonds ofthe Dominion of Canada. Holders of Dominion bonds bearing five and a-half
per cent, maturing December 1,1922, can re
invest heir money at the same rate of interest
by exchanging the old bonds for new ones
running for either five years or ten years, as
the bondholder may prefer. Arrangements for
carrying out this exchange may be made
through all the chartered banks. *

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 listings; 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.

PASSING
The Grave of a Canadian Poetess
Railway JSiews
Quebec.—All records were broken
at the Chateau Frontenac recently,
the hotel being rilled to capacity and
not a single room being vacant.
Many of the passengerB who arrived
from New York, had to remain on
board the steamer for lack of room
at the hotel. Tourists from all parts
of the States and Canada arrived
by motor and the parking ground in
front of the Chateau was lined with
rows and rows of cars. Tht Lobby
of the hotel was crowded with vi«-
tors anxiously waiting for accommodation and in the evening the
crowd was greater than ever. Th*
new wing of the Chateau when completed, will undoubtedly be a boon
to the city as the additional accommodation thus obtained will satisfy
the large demand made on the hotel.
With the advent of the August
tourists traffic conditions in Quebec
have taken on a new aspect, which
has necessitated an extension in th*
service  of the  traffic  policemen.
TOUBISTS from all over thc world appreciate the
beauty of tliat corner of Stanley Park, British
Columbia, where aro buried tho ashes of Canada's In
dian poetess, Paulino Johnson. In the shade of the
great trees, within sight of the Siwash Bock, fit is one
of the ideal spots of that peerless natural woodland,
and has been marked by a simple temporary stone
rolled ia place. To catch tho spirit of her songs that
Quads'a love for her Indian princess may have on
during expression a permanent memorial will shortly
be erected.
Tlie memorial will take the form of a rustic, nn-
t'sjue fountain, to be erected from moss covered stones,
gathered from tlio pork. Tho water will flow through
this granite protection as a natural spring, and fall
into a pool at the side with the added charm of water
lilfies in the pool. The head stone will have a life
■tie reproduction of the kead of the poetess, while on
the west side will be emblems of her legends, showing
the flint and feather. The "flint and feanher" is an
emblem, rich in Indian associations. "Flint" suggests tne Bed man's weapons of war; it is the arrow
tip, the heart quality of the people. The "feather"
is tn* etude plume that crests the head of ths warrior
a***/ Si* ****+•* (to takt**m*sm*"tfm ttnkl
and  feather  bear the   hall maths   of  my  Mohawk
blood."
On tho east side of the fountain will bo carved u
canoe and paddle. This will be significant as a representation of the sp.srit of the "song my paddle sirlga,"
ono of the sweetest songs penned by tho princess, It
roads:
"And up in the hills against tne sky,
A fir tree rocking its lullaby,
Swings, swings,
Its emerald wings,
Swelling the song my paddle sings."
Ths eyes of the figure wuj be foeusscd un tho
stream of wator, and Beneath the carving will bo the
name "E. Pauline Johnson," with the date of birth
and death.
Thc plan promoted by the Art, Historical and
Scioutific Society of Vancouvor, of establishing an Indian village in Stanley Park, will prove unique is
('anada. It will breathe an individualism redolent with
ussociulions of the "evergreen coast," and of the
early history and legends of our country. The idea of
the society is to bring on entire old-time Indian village, with its many totem polos, lodges, council chambers and customary features, and placo it in Stanley
Park.
It will perpetuate for all time the splendid and ancient history of some of the early native coast Indians, constituting the original pre-histoiic inhabitants
of British Columbia, now only tho remnant of a dying
race. Thero are a fow remaining villages, now in danger of decay from long disuse, silently nestling at so-
eluded northern coves along tho Pacific coast. There
is ovidonce of stately pomp and grandeur about the
large lodges and spacious council chambers with their
•numerous heraldic totem poles. The society hopes to
obtain an ample number of totem poles, ehiof a regalia, "coppers," a metalHc insignia of hereditary office and other panoply, dancing masks, robes, talking
sticks, huge muek-a-muck bowls, war canoes, carved
door jambs, and lintels, roof trees, medicine oven's

Pembroke.—The Canadian Foret-
•try Association's Forest Products
Exhibit Car came to Pembroke on
the civic holiday, under the management of Mr. Gerald Blyth, assistant
secretary of the association, and
was visited at its berth in the Canadian Pacific Railway station yard
by a large number of interested citizens. The exhibit car contains many
novel and interesting models calculated to demonstrate the correct
and incorrect method of logging, the
result of deforesting the hills, and
what happens when camp fires are
neglected or burning matches art
carelessly thrown away in the dry
woods.
One exhibit showing ladies'
blouses, stockings and other Bilk
wear made from sulphite purp attracted considerable attention, and
another which interested the visitors
greatly showed the various stages
in the making o" matches. A sign
over the latter exhibit pointed out
that one tree will make a million
matches, but that one match can
destroy a million trees. Perhaps
the most interesting and attractive
model on the car is «, large model ol
a heavily timbered country and •
•mall town close bj. When a lever
is turned there is a complete transformation. Thc light goes out and
by an arrangement of scrcons the
forest and town are seen to be on
fire This model cost about f 1,000
to construct Another model shows
how deforestation causes rivers te
flood in spring and dry up In tht
summer. There Is s sprinkle*,
arrangement attached to this.'

The poll on the railway agreement on Tuesday turned out to be
a surprise to a great many people,
but tbe strenuous campaigning done
after 5 o'clock is said to have been
responsible for the result. The vote
was 135 for the agreement, 86
against it, witb 5 rejected ballots.
As the agreement required three"
fifths of a majority, it was carried
by only four votes.

Gunning   Rather    Than
Speed
An Englishman who had
once seen an Amarican fox
running before a hound wrote
that the American fox is much
slower than its English cousin
As a matter of fact, the Englishman's assertion, which by
the way appeared in an encyclopedia, is really a tribute
to the superior cunning of
the American fox. Reynard,
says Charles D. Stewart in
the Atlantic Monthly,  could
have run a good deal faster
had he thought it wise to do
so.
A fox surprised by a hound
in a small patch of woods will
run across the open at astonishing speed. Then he not
only will slow up but may
even sit down on some con-
venieut elevation and look
back. He keeps his wits
about him; he wants to
know what is going on.
When the honnd has struck
his stride the fox will soon
gauge it and lead him a chase.
Anyone who sees the chase
and knows that the honnd is
slow becomes an admirer of
the witty Reynard and will
be likely to say that the fox
is running slowly just to tease
the dog.     Indeed, many en-

tertaining writers have said
so; but a veteran hunter would
not so interpret the action of the
fox. He well knows that when a
fox gets half a mile or so ahead of
him and skulks along at a set distance out of sight, it is not doing it
to tease him. The fox is not so human as that. The plain fact is that
the fox will not retreat before a dog
any faster tban the dog drives him,
That is because it is naturally cun>
