to Prove Beneficial to
Future Guidance of Associated
The first meeting of the 1924 board
of directors of the Associated Grow
era of British Columbia Limited,

year with the following exceptions.
Mr. Chambers. Penticton, vice Mr.
DasBrisay; Mr. Dryden, Westband
and Peachland, vico Mr. Hogg; Mr.
Simpson, Oliver, vice Mr. Huntley.
The old executive of four members

ing 1923, has been replaced by, an
advisory committee o' five members,
one ot whom shall be in continuous
session and shall call into conference
any one or more of the other members
■s may be necessary or desirable.
Mr. Howe, re elected as president
of the association for a second term,
was the chosen member for continue
ous session, the others being Colonel
B. Scott, Salmon Arm, vice president;
J. J. Campbell, Nelson; Q. A. Barrat,
Kelowna; B.  Steuart,  Summerland,
The Vegetable Commodity associa
tions requested the addition of a
Vegetable representative to that com*
mittee and nominated F. A. Lewis,
who was duly elected.
An innovation that itis confidently
hoped will make for a much better
understanding between growers and
the central office, and which will re
suit in the evolution of an efficient
growers' service department, is to be
the appointment of an assistant secretary to the board of directors and ad.
visory committee, who will hate
growers' publicity and service work
under his immediate control.
A number of reoommendations were
forwarded to the fruit branch, department of agriculture, Ottawa,ask-
ing for increased and more efficient
inspection packing for export and the
abolition of the combinations packs.
A meeting of managers, who will
be accompanied by delegates from the
loeal boards, will be called shortly,
at whioh the questions of grading,
packing, eto., will ba discussed and
recommendations made to the board
for approval.
A committee on pooling was named
whioh will bring in a complete recom
mendation aB to the system to be followed at the next meeting of the
board of directors, and the president
was authorized to arrange aconference
on finance between the representatives
of certain locals and representatives
of banking interests with a view to
establishing more complete confidence
in financial matters.
The appointment of a geueral man
ager in the immediate future who
will be in absolute control of the as
sociation's business was decided upon
and the advisory committee was in
strncted to line up suitable applicants
for that most important position and
to make a definite recommendation to
the board for confirmation.
During the merting Mr. Grant)
prairie markets commissioner, and
Mr. Clarke, Dominion frnit inspector,
addressed the members, each giving
valuable information relating to his
own sphere.
The new board has settled down to
a oomplete realizntion of its many
and varied problems, and while it
does not suffer from a feeling of 'un<
due optimism, it is quetly confident
that by taking full advantage of last
year's experience better and more
efficient work should be accomplished.

Premier Oliver Devotes an
Hour's Time to Third
Party Matters and Asks
a Pertinent Question
Victoria, February 14.—Hon. T.
D. Pattullo, minister of lands, has
returned from Ottawa, Montreal and
Toronto, and reports conditions
throughout Canada as never having
been better. He visited points along
the Canadian National in British
Columbia and is optimistic over the
prospect of anew puip and paper mill
in Prince George. Establishment of a
plant there this summer is a certainty.
Premier Oliver devoted an hour's
time to a discussfun of third party
matters when addressing a meeting
recently in Esquimalt. He spoke of
General McRae's activities in various
business ventures and said he would
like to ask bow McRae srill aon-
tinued to bea multimillionaire,having
regard to the losses which he imposed
upon the debenture holders of the
Pacific Fisheries.
"He tells us that he pays $3000 a
year taxes on his Vancouver resi
dence," said the premier, 'and after
paying his household expenses had
not enough left out of $25,000 a year
to 'wad a gun ' I ask you to compare
this man'a style of living with the
fate of those who, on the strength of
his jepresentations, entrusted their
money to his care and lost almost all
the capital they invested."
Another statement of the premier
was:   I have been asked   repeatedly
what is the motive behind tbe activi«
ty of McRae, and in reply I will propound you   u   simple   _^______
problem in mathema,
tics: If McRae is able
by the cunning of his
brain to extract a net
profit of $9,900,000
out of the disposition
of 5,600,000 acres of
prairie lands, how much
would lie be able to

Notes. Notions and Notables
According   to jiTreport from Victoria,'this
week   Attorney   General  Manson   will   an
nounce the personuel of the royal commission
which  will  investigate  charges  of the third
party relative to Pacific Great Eastern railway
matters. The scope of the commission will be
comprehensive, it is,learned in inside quarters,
and before  the ^commission   has  finished its
work opportunity will have been provided for
te fullest enquiry into every charge,of wrongdoing, inefficiency and  excessive  costs in the
handling of .the'government 'line. . The'final
auditjbeing made by Messrs.  Price,   Water
house & Co. is about completed.   Auditors of
that tirm^will be summoned  as ^witnesses to
give evidence regardiug^all  expenditures, and
from  present ^indications,', it appears that the
Provincial party has pulled a bloomer and has
no chance of discrediting the administration.
On the other hand, the enquiry will  no doubt
benefit the province gfeatly.   For years oppo
sition members and the^credit of the railway
and its chances of final^success have beenjin-
jured materially.    A complete housecleaning,
together with cost are justified, it is claimed,
and the enquiry will uot have been in vain if
it places the Pacific Great Eastern,on a foun
datiori of understanding and permits the government to proceed with its plans tor the com
pletion of the line to Prince George aud the
settlement of the lands adjacent to the rail
The great two handed sword with which
Robert the Bruce fought at Baunackburn has
been handed dowu from generation to generation of the Bruce family who possessed Clack-
mannon tower. The last survivor of this
branch was Mrs. Catherine Bruce, a lady of
remarkable character and strong Jacobite convictions, who was convinced that her posses
sion of the royal sword of Scotland gave her
the prerogative of conferring the honor of
kuighthood. She thus honored many visitors
to Clackmaunon tower, among them Bobbie
Burns, who visited when she was a nouagen
arian As Burns rose to his feet he gallantly
kissed the old lady's hand. "What ails thee at
my lips, Robin?" the ancient dame is ^said to
have asked.
warmwood and the following year obtained
from them some very fine plants. They had
this notable feature—while the flowers of
some of the plants emitted a perfume similar
to those of the original graft, others were ab
solutely without odor.
Funny laws have been tried out sometimes.
In Edward Ill's time a law was passed which
forbade more than two courses being served
at dinner except on certain specified holidays.
It sounds like the wartime law against treat
ing and other food regulations. "To do, or
exercise, any worldly labor, business, or work
of your ordinary calling on Sunday" is another
little misdemeanor for which in the old days
people were fined five shillings or put in the
stocks for two hours. Other things still pun
ishable by law in Europe are eating meat on
a Wednesday or driving on a Sunday. A short
time ago a man was summoned for selling
lavender without a peddler's licence. Apparently he s)ld the lavendar done up in bags,
for had he sold it loose he would not have
been looked upon as a peddler. The summons
was dismissed.
Tea is commended by Major J. G. Mc
Naught, an army surgeon, who declares that
the typhoid germ, in pure culture, become
greatly diminished in numbers by an exposure
of four hours to tea. After twenty hours it
was impossible to recover it at all from cold
tea. He recommends thc use of cold tea as a
substitute for water in soldiers' canteens during active service. Major McNaught sug
gested some time since that everybody sliould
drink tea. If prepared in the proper man
ner, tea, according to physicians, constitute a
refreshing and not harmful beverage, for it is
tiiniiin and oilier extractives which aie drawn
out only after continued steeping, that are
productive of harmful consequences. "Boiled"
tea gives a coppery coat to the stomach and a
saffron hue to t*ie face.
The perfume of (lowers is greatly increased
by a method invented by Professor Daniel
of Rennes, France. He explained it to the
Academy of Science in Paris. By taking two
plants of the same species and grafting one on
tne other—notably a wormwood on a chrysanthemum—he found not only that the grafted
wormwood develop remarkably, but its fiow-
eis gave forth a perfume much more powerful
than that of the original plant. Moreover, the
chrysanthemum had given to the wormwood
flower something of its own perfume. M.
Daniel   collected   the  seeds of the grafted
Louisiana has an 'immense cypress tree
which contains about 23,000 feet of lumber.
It belongs to William Edenborn, who will not
have it felled. Scientists say that this tree is
2500 years old. It was alive when Jerusalem
was entered by Nebuchadnezzer; was 600
years old at the birth of Christ; and more than
2000 years old wheu Columbus discovered
America. Other wonderful trees of immense
age are the Babbab tree in Senegal, which is
4000 years old; the redwood tree in California
and a Dragon tree in Tenriffe about the same
age; and a cypress in Mexico which is supposed to have reached the remarkable ago of
6000 years.
Admiral is not an English word Its origin
was Emir el Bagh, which is Arabic for "Lord
of the sea." The term captain comes to us
direct from the Latin caput, meaning head.
The coxswain was originally the man who
pulled ihe after-oar of the captain's boat,then
known as the "cock's boat." Cock-boat itself
is a corruption of the word coracle, a small
round boat used for fishing. Commodore is
nothing more than the Italian commendatore,
or commander. Frequently we hear about
"Davy Jo es." There was, of course, no such
person,but should you speak of "Duffy Jonah's
Locker," you have the original phrase. Duffy
is the West Indian negro term for the spirit
of Jonah. The term "dog watch" is a corruption of "dodge" watch, the "dodge" being an
arrangemeut to iprevent men from being on
duty every day at the same hours. The star-
br-ard side of a ship was at one time the steer-
board side, in memory of the Anglo-Saxons
who used to steer their boats by putting out
an oar on the right-hand side of the stern. Th
larboard (now known as the port side) is a
corruption of lower board, which was always
considered inferior to the starboard.

The Objects of thi- Institution, for which Incorporation was recently obtained, are: "To provide a Home and Refuge for Baby and Infant Blind; to
provide free Scientific Care, Training and Maintenance; to Save the Lives of
even a few of the m icy of such unfortunates, who, for the laek of suoh ser»
vice, perish every y•< ir; and to return these little ones to their parents, at
sohool age with noi-.nal, healthy bodies and sound minds."
This is a large an i greatly needed Child Welfare Service. Careful enquiry
at the Government offices in the verious 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
yoars ago, the flrst 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 Houae," Chorley Wood, for Blind Babies,
and he claims that it ia the only one in the Britiah Empire. Let as have the
SECOND in Canada. To reach this worthy end money is urgently required.
Fifty Thouaand Dollara ia the present objective of the Botud. While the
Home is to be located in Ottawa it will take in the Baby Blind from every
province, so that thia 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 Babies Home Association. All remittances
will be promptly acknowledged.

believe in "exaggerated whisperings
or in any statements which are calculated to di :;Lroy the belief of Canadians in t'leir own country."
Captain S. Robinson, C.B.E.,
R.N.11., commanding the Canadiaa
Pacific liner "Empress of Canada,"
was invested with the C.B.E. by Sir
HarVy Armstrong, British Consul-
Genoral at New York, when hia ahip
arrived there on January 26th, prior
to Betting out on her great.world
cruise. Captain Robinson also received tlie freedom of the city of
New York. These honors were in
recognition of his gallant work
when commanding the Canadian
Pacific liner "Empress of Australia" at Yokohama, at the time of tiie
Japanese  difaster.
According to Canadian Pacific of-
ficia'.s, immigrants from Europe
-.•.''in spend a few hours in Montreal
.:i their way west are re-discovering
America—or rather Canada—at a
Ri-eat rate. Some days ago there
were eighty Scandinavians drumming their hf.els in the big waiting-
rooms UL vv ii'c. .ur ouiuuii, Doreu TO
tears. Then one of them suddenly
discovered that the Province of Que-
Lec, unlike Sweden, is not "dry." The
rush of thc- Dane.-, on Alfred's England was as nothing compared to
that with which the delighted Scandinavian gentlemen emptied that
waiting-roolh. So excellent did they
find the beer that they did not show
up aj*"»in till train-time, when they
announce I unanimously, though
with slight difficulty, that "Canada
bane one fine country."
To be stranded in a strange dty
with no worldly assets but a suit of
dress-clothes and yet to come out of
the adventure victorious is to
achieve romething. Joe and Bill arrived in Montreal a few nights ago,
their baggage consisting of the
clothes they wore, two dress suits,
an adequate quantity of the needful and an enthusiastic determination to see Life with a capital L.
When they woke on the morning
after, they found that someone had
relieved them of everything they
possessed except the dress suits
they had slept in, and which they
had worn for the previous night's
In this predicament they appealed
to the authorities at the Canadian
Pacific Windsor Station, for work
whereby to earn enough to take
hem out of the wicked city. Sympathetic officials put them on the
mow-shovelling gang. And here

dres*; suits, Joe with his feet wrap-

61)0,000 eggs were obtained, which

A new deposit of soapstone has
been discovered on Trap Lake, a
small lake south of Wabigoon Lake,
in northwestern Ontario. The quality
of the stone has bcen reported as excellent for various industrial uses,
and practical trials are under way.
Water transportation is available
direct from the deposits to Wabigoon

It is announced by the Canadian
Pacific Railway that two free
scholarships covering four years'

employees enrolled on the permanent

years of age, and to minor sons of
_ Canada's fisheries' production during 1923 is estimated to be worth
?40,000,000. At the beginning of the
yea-r it was not thought that anything like thia mark would be reached, for the Fordney tariff had cut
deeply into exports to the United
States. But as the year wore on the
demand and prices generally improved, thus giving fishermen along
the Atlantic coast especially a much
better market.
A tilth, nearly a mile long and
drawn by a single locomotive recently carried 165,000 bushels of
grain   over   thc   Canadian   Pacific
western lines.
Almost sixteen and a half million
bushels of wheat wero exported
from the port of Vancouver during
the period September 1, 1922, to
JMay 31 of the present year, according to figures issued by tbe Merchants  Exchange.
Among the large number of unaccompanied women on the last I
westward voyages of the Canadian
Pacific liners "Montclare" and "Melita" were twenty-three who were
coming to Canada to be married in
various parts of the Dominion.
An official in charge of the cattU
shipments from the Port of Mont-

Following in Magellan's Footsteps
Higher civilization has not killed the Spirit of Adventure, it .nay
even be, that people now-a-days are affected more by Wanderlust
than they ever were, and enhanced facilities for travel with a greater
degree of safety have stimulated, and not a little, the desire to see other
than their immediate environs. In the old days when Columbus, Vespucci.
Balboa, De Soto and Drake, Cartier and Champlain, and other bold
mariners sailed into the unknown and its perils on the seven Seas, much
courage was needed but today the World is every-man's oyster, nor does
it have to be opened with a sword. With a little time and comparatively
little money, one can see the places where history was made, far oil countries
and strange people,   and live the while, in   comfort.
Four hundred years ago, the flrst vessel to sail round the world lifted
anchor at Seville, and after three years of adventurous hardship, returned
to her Spanish port. Only thirty-one of the two hundred and seventy
who set out came back, and only the Vittoria out of the original
Armada of five sailing ships. The spirit of these seafarers is illustrated by
the vow of Fernando Magellan their commander, as he set out from Tierra
del Fuego across the Great South Sea, that he would push on if he had
to eat the leather of the riggin'. Magellan himself was killed in the Phillip-
pines, but as he had already reached that longitude on a previous
voyage eastward from Spain, he is rightly credited with being the flrst to
circumnavigate the globe.
Sixty years after the Vittoria set out from Seville, Francis Drake
with a fleet of Ave sailing ships and 164 men sailed from Plymouth in The
Golden Hind, and after a voyage round the world of almost three yeara,
returned with a rich loot of silver and gold, silk, pearls and precious stones", to
replenish the coffers of Queen Elizabeth The Golden Hind was the only
vessel of the Ave to complete the voyage and it became the favourite resort
wt tauiists on the Thames in the days of Shaluaaaare.

tons, whereas the Empress of Canada, which sets out on a Round the
World Cruise from New York on January 30th, 1924, registers no leas then
21,500 tons. Instead of three years of privation and hardship, the voyage
will occupy four months of luxurious comfort The route will be shorter, ts
instead of rounding the Cape of Good Hope the route taken is through the
Suez Canal, and instead of traversing tne stormy Strait's ot Magellan,
the American continent is finally crossed on the excellent road-bed of the
Canadian Pacific Railway. But many of the points touched by flir Francis
Drake and Magellan will be visited by the Empress of Canada, for instance,
Batavia, Sourbaya and the traverse of the Celebes Sea to the FhflUpines.
The circumnavigators on the Empress of Canada will return laden with
the  rich   experiences  and  mental   treasures   gathered  from   visions
eighteen different countries,  and contact with  the costumes crafts
civilizations of flfty different races.
Encouraged by successes of former years, the Canadian Paeifle has
arranged for four cruisers in addition to the Round the World voyage
of the Empress of Canada. The Empress of Scotland will visit tne cradle
of civilization in a trip Round the Mediterranean, sailing from New
York on January 14th. The superb Empress of Britain will make two
cruises Round tne West Indies, leaving New York on January 22nd and
February 23rd, and, before setting off round the world, the Empress of
Canada will travel Round America, sailing from Vancouver on January
4th, visiting the Pacific coast, California, and going via the Panamr
Canal and Cuba to New York. This vessel will be commanded by Cap'*'
S. Robinson R. N. R. who figured so conspicuously in the relic'
which followed the recent Japanese disaster.

Recent Amendments
to the Game Act
A recent amendment tu the game
act, which does not seem to be geD
erally knowu, includes in the furs-
bearing classification wolverine and
lynx, two animals which up to the
present time have not been classed
undcJ this head. The result is that
these animals came under the close
season regulations, and it is unlawful to kill or trap them. A numbe
of these animals have recently been
brought in, and to the disappoints*
ment of those who had captured
them, they were confiscated, As the
change is not generally known it ib
not likely prosecutions will he
pressed, though warnings arc being
sent out whenever occasion presents
itself. Another regulation providin

Upon the arrival of the Canadian Pacific S.S. Empress of Canada at New
York, following her cruise Round America, Captain S. Robinson, R.N.R.,
who now commands this vessel on world cruise, was created a Commandei
of the Order of the British Empire in recognition of his heroic work at Yokohama when Japan was rocked by earthquake and when the
Empress of Australia, which he then commanded, was the headquarters
for the rescue parties and relief workers. The investiture was made by Sir
Harry Armstrong, British Consul General at New York in the presence of a
large gathering of important fif ures in Canadian aad American political and
commercial life. This photogr; ph was taken at the time of the investiture
and shows, from left to right, Sir Harry Armstrong, Captain S. Robinson,
