The Prophet in His Own
Country Again
Those who kuew us iu boyhood
are rarely impressed with our triumphs in mature years. Chauncey
M. Depew, in his recollections that
are printed in Scrib ler's Magazine,
tells nn amusing story about 1 Vie
late Melville E. Ingalls, who as a
railway president had combined and
rehabilited several bankrupt lines.
Ingalls had returned for a rest to
the little Maine village where he
was born and, at the "hot-stove
senate" in the general store an old
farmer said:
"Melville, they do tell thet ye're
gittin' a salary of n"h onto ten
thousand dollars every year."
Ingalls, who waH actually tlrawing
several times that sum, nodded;
whereon the old farmer observed:
"Well, thet jes' shows wbat luck
••n' cheek kin do fer a feller."
Honey is the nectar of flowers
gathered and modified by seviral
insects, especially the honey bee.
Chemically, boney consists of BUgar
about 75 per cent, water 15 per cent,
with small quantities of mineral
matter and substances such as protein, aeid and volatile oils. Very
little, ubout I to 2 per cent, of the
sugar contained in honey is sucrose
or cane sugar, tho ordinary sugir
of commerce; the rest of it is dextrose and levulose or invert sugars
produced in the first stage of digestion of sucrose. The two invert
sugars are present in about equ a
proportions, but may v fy slightly
according to the source of the honey
Sometimes the two sugars separate
and we find the dextrose granulated
in the bottom of tbe containers
while the levulose remains liquid on
top. Honey varies in color from the
different sources; thus we have a
water-white honey from the clovers
and fireweed; amber honey from
dandelion and frutt blossom, while
from buckwheat it is very dark,
almost blank.
Honey is usually marketed in
two forms: comb honey and extracted honey. Comb honey is a
fancy product and appeals to many
conrumers because of its natural
appearance. Sections tilled with the
while honeys are most desired. F,x-
traded honey is produced more
economically, as the honey is removed from the combs by centrifugal force aud the combs are again
used. Extracted honey is usually
put up fn half-pound and one-
pound bottles, or two and one-hall,
tive, ten, thirty and uixty pjund
tins. Practically all honey produced
in Canada granulates soon after extracting, but this doe.i not affect its
quality in the least but makes it
easier to handle. The idea that
granulated hooey is adulterated is
erroneous. Granulated honey cm
be hrought back to ils liquid state
by gently heating to 155 degrees
Farhenheit; a higher temperature
than this is likely to darken the
honey and affect its flavor,
Honey should be stored in a dry
place, as it readily absorbs moisture,
which in turn will cau.te -fermentation.
Honey is a food which produces
hea^ and energy. It is in concentrated form and ready for use at all
times. There is no waste, as well
ripened   honey   will  keep  in good
time provided it is stored in a suitable place. Honey is an excellent
food for children and adults and
should find a place in the daily
menu; it readily takes the place of
jams or preserves or as an sordinary
spread upon braad.
In cooking, honey can be used instead of sugar and has the advantage of keeping cakes, bread or
bisonits neshand mnist for a longer
time. Honey also gives satisfactory
results when used in making
cookies, candies, ice cream, etc-,
aud for sweetening fruit drinks such
as lemonade; it can also be used for
preserving certain fruits. An excellent vinegar can be made from
honey., aud it is also one of the chief
constituents of cough medicines and
other remedies.—C. B. Gooderham,
Domiuion Apiarist.

A New Note From 'Omet's

stepped into a London bookt-hop

Returning" the Brick
It has never troubled Chauncey
M. Depew to find a clever repartee.
He is seldom at a loss for a reply
that would set his audience to
laughing with him at his opponent.
In Scribuer's Magazine he tells how
at   the   annual  dinner of the New
Tlie Hope Section ol

li is reported that the p"rovic-
eial government plans to commence
the construction of tbe tn isprovin
eial highway from Hope east oarly
next year, it was announced in tin
legislature, on Wotlaesday^ bv II" .
W. D Sutherland, minister of public works, wheu thi- estimate-: were
brought up in tue house tor the
public works department. It was
explained by Hon. Dr. Sutherland
thai survey gangs under Engineer
W, K. Gwyer have been at work on
the western end of the Hope-I'rinc-
ton route.
Hon. Mr. Sutherland recerrtly
made a personal survey of the
routes, accompanied by Engineer
Gwyer. They travelled over the
Cleveland survey for twenty-live to
thirty miles on through the A'lison
pass art, cu altitude of 1100 feet, then
striking the Dewdney trail and following it into Hope.
As to the probable route ot the
highway, it is assumed Irom Dr.
Sutherland's statement that for
twenty-live or thirty miles it will
follow the Dowdnoy trail, take the
Allison pass and than strike tho
Cleveland survey twenty live miles
west of Princeton. This would in*
volve the utilization of part of tho
King route and one-third of each 0!
the other routes aod the lower altitude of Allison pass.
It was pointed out hy W, A. Mc-
Kenzie, member for Similkameen,
that for the first twenty fiveto thirty

Notes, Notions and Notables
The joint meeting of the city council and
the ratepayers in the council chamber this
evening was of considerable informative
value to the municipal .electors. The statistical matter produced by the city officials should
enable those who were present to cast their
ballots conscientiously next Thursday. It is
uuderstood these meetings are to an annual
preelection event in the future. The idea is
good and deserves to be perpetuated.
The only criticism that we happened tb
overhear at the close ofthe meeting was, that
it was too much of a love feast. Perhaps it
had a tendency to lean a little too strongly in
this direction. But then it i.s sometimes dif
ficnlt to attain perfection with the first attempt.
From among the mass of figures produced
there were two items that our citizens can
take pride in. The facts that Grand Forks'
bonded indebtedness is less than that of any
other city of similar size in the province,
and that our tax rate—at which we sometimes howl ourselves hoarse—is considerably
lower than in the majority of British Columbia cities, are matters of great potential advertising value. Anyone acquainted with the
financial standing of British Columbia municipalities can verify this statement.
Capital punishment is lawful. In the present state of society, most people believe it to
be necessary, reasonable and just. Sentimentalists, well meaning and sincere, but badly
misguided, are partly responsible for the rising murder rate in this country and tho United
States because they are giving most of their
attention to the murderer rather than to his
victim. Another reason why murders are becoming more numerous is that execution is
not inflictad in all cases of deliberate murder.
Let us illustrate. Illinois has a statute'provid-
ing capital punishment for murder. The same
statute also ['provides that the sentence may
iie from fourteen years to life imprisonment.
£n 1921 there were 208 murders in Cook
county. During the same period 22u defend
ant were arraigned on murder charges. Thore
were fifty-five convictions. Forty six were
sentenced to tho penitentiary and to the reformatory and only six wero sentenced to
Liang. In other words, less than 'i [ier cont of
tlio murderers convictod ln Cook county last
yoar suffered capital punishment.
Properly developed, the cascara industry
should be worth millions of dollars to British
Columbia annually. The cascara troe furnishes
the bark from which is prepared the well-
known medicine cascara sagrada. The tree
belongs to the northwest coast of America,
and British Columbia is the only portion of
the British empire i which it is a nat-'ve. Owing to the rapid depletion of this troe in Ore
gon and Washington, manufacturing druggists
are looking to British Columbia for further
supplies of the bark.
Puppy love resulting in runaway . high
school boys and girls is not so much the fault
of the youngsters as it is of their parents. The
home is the place for teaching of sex matters,
not the public schools. Parents do not want
an old maid to teach their children sex hygiene.
In sex matters children must be treated as individuals. And they must be taught more by
example than by precept. Young people become obsessed with false notions of love  and
married life by meats of certain movies and
novels. The dances of society are so suggestive
that they affect their minds and habits of
thought. But who, primarily, are to blame for
the movies, the reading of the novels, and the
suggestive dances? Not the children, but the
parents who set the standards of society. The
sex movies are not staged at the theaters because of the demand made by the pupils of
the schoois, but by adults, that is, by the patents. The fallacy of teaching sex hygiene in
the public school, or in any place except to individuals by the parents or some one interested and competent, who has access to the confidence of tee child, is that the evils of our
day are not the result of ignorance so much as
tho lack of character.
Three Years of the  League of Nations
Have Now Fixed Its Character
The year of 1922 marks a period in the life
of tne League of \ ations, for it has shown
conclusively its desire to recognize the actual
state of affairs. Asa result it tries not to create but to shape. The league has found that it
can not force political growth; any action it
akes must be the result of common agreement
between all the members, big and little. So the
league is not so much an institution as a state
of mind. The people who, in the first enthusiasm of what they saw as the dawn of a new
era, wished to clothe the league with the
highest political power, soon saw that what
was essential was not so much a central "governing hand as international cooperation. So
they wisely started by following the lines of
least resistance, by establishing various techi-
cal bodies and, most important, the permanent
court of international justice, which had already been agreed to in principle by all the
powers, including the United States, at The
The three years through which the league
eas lived has now fixed its character. It attempts only wnat is brought to it and it works
by finding an atmosphere of mutual consent.
Today it is more than proved that it is not, in
any way or for any power, a super-state. It is
not a dictator, but it is a universal conscience.
The fact that what is sought in the league is
the equality of all has had a Jesuit of great
When one hasjbeen at two assembl es, as I
have, he can see the spirit clearly. It is a gathering without intrigue. The currents and undercurrents one finds at most international
conferences do not exist at Geneva. This is
because it has been recognized as the basic
principle of the league that it will not do to
drag a member unwillingly into a course of
action that he does not agree to gladly. As
each state is really sovereign, intrigue can not
produce a result and is not attempted.
As a South American I am most anxious
for the United States to join the league. But
it is a mistake to think that any power wants
the United States to join for the sake of its
riches or military strength. The league can not
use the resources of any nation unfairly or for
the others; it is for her moral strength that we
wish the United States to become. a partner.
If all the South American repubtics were in,
with the United States at tho head, our in-
Hueiice in the league would be overwhelming.

A  Prompt   Answer  Improves
Everybody's Telephone Service
Sometimes when you make a telephone
call, you do not get the numbers promptly. When you tell the operator, she says,
"I will ring them again."
Finally when you get the party wanted,
do you feel that the operator has not
given you prompt service, or do you realize that the person you called may not
have answered the telephone at once?
It will help to provide prompt service
for all if every subscriber will answer the
telephone as soon as the bell rings.

personalities in the contemporary
history of French Canada. Car-

■aod old Quebec, the city he loved
aad eared for during his lifetime,
aad upon which was reflected so
much of the glory he gathered by his
rapid'ascent in the hierarchy of the
Catholic Charch. t Cardinal Tasch-
treau wu appointed to that high
Hata ia 1886 and he died in 1897. He

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 organiaed some
time ago to defray the cost of such
a memorial. When sufficient funds
had been collected, a conteit in
whieh 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 been engaged in
making many of France'* best known
monument* erected in recent years.

lthe "Blue Devils," the celebrated
I Alpn* regimen* of France, stands on
the summit of Guetwiller aad is much
Shortly after the decision of the
committee was made known, Mr.
Andre Vermare landed in Quebec
with Mr. Maxirae Roisin, the architect who Is going to design thc
pedestal of the Taachereau memorial
Mr. Roisin, alto, hat attained a great
reputation in his country as a master
of hit art. His last work of importance is probably the triumphal arch
whieh will soon be built on the road
from Bar-le-Duc to Verdun, to immortalise the glorious stand of the
"Poilu" on what wat then known as
the "Hell of Verdun."
The two French artitts, who left
Quebec for their own country a
short time ago to proceed with their
work on thc Taschereau memorial,
took the opportunity of their stay in
the old city of Champlain to collect
some valuable information regarding
the life, .warn and character of the
late cardinal, sue* ********¥*** being
indispensable lu give a true interpretation of his personality. The
location of the monument was also
discussed, and it was agreed that it
would stand in the little park
stretching in front of the Basilica, at
the end of the Rue dc la Fabrinue.
While in Quebec, Mr. Veroiare and
Mr Roison were the guests at a great
banquet given in Iheir honour at tin
Garrison Club, at which mosl of the
prominent people of the ancient capital attended In answer to various
speeches of welcome by Hon. L. A.
Taschereau. Mgr. Marois, Mr. Henlri
Gagnon, and ol+ers, Mr. Vermare
said how he and nis companion wert

Advertise THE   SUN,   URAND   FORKS,
An Appeal to the
on the Finance Committee aa Alderman. Dr. Acres never served
as an Alderman.
In uonclution, I  again   earnestly
ask for your vote and support, as
suring you tbat your vote is wanted,
needed and will be appreciated.
To the Electors of tlie
West Ward
It being impossible for me to personally call on i\\\ the elector^ in
order to explain tny position und
the reas n why I am seeking the
iffice of Mayor for the third term,
I am taking this in ;an3 of addressing you.
Hairing served on tbe Council
since January,; 1919, iwo of those
years as your Mayor, 1 was reluctant to aspire for a third term and
only did so after sitisfying my-^lf
tbat tbe present Aldermen did not
intend seeking that honour.
Had any of thorn expressed a desire or intention of running I would
not have allowed my na::ie to be
considered, for 1 believe, in all fairness, tbat if you have an Alderman
who can fill tbe bill and seeks the
mayoralty, it should come to him as
a. reward for services rendered and
appreciation of the work done in
the humbler sphere as Aldermen.
Having satisfied myself that n jue
of the Aldermen were sueking the
position, I then declared my willingness to stand if it was reasonably
shewn that I was wanted, and it
was not until 1 received a petition
embodying the names of most of tbe
heaviest property holders and, naturally, taxpayers, tbat I declared my
intention of being a candidate.
I believe the public generally are
Batisiied witli the work done by the
Council during the year. An honest
effort has beeu made by tbe Alder*
.men in their various departments
to give you oue hundred per cent
value on every dollar expended;
they have at all time endeavored to
plan any work in a fair aud impartial manner, and have given willingly and generously of their time
ind energy in the conduct of the
iffairs of the city.
Ouriag the past four years it -has
been a hard grind,financially speaking. It ie no pleasure to be iu oflice
luring four years of forced econon
ny; many things had to ba done
vhich did not always meet with
your approval and whicb would not
bave been necessary had tbe debts
of the city beeu less pressing.
But the credit of the city was at
stake; even during tbe past year
some twenty tbomaud dollars bu-
came due and were paid off,
Having got over the hill of the
city's linancial difliculiies and wttb
daylight ahead, with a possibility
in in sight of being able to lighten
some of your burdens by a reduction in your taxes, i would ask not
only for myself but ulsoBfor any of
, the present Aldermen whu may
seek reflection, that -,- iu signify by
your vote and inll u noe a ,-:i <i|t. gp,
preoiation of the work already done
and thus permit a further opportunity to proceed aim.; the lines
already p*auned, that is,a reduction
of your taxes.
1 believe this can be done; 1 also
believe it will he douo. lt is with
this object iu view ihat I am asking
for your support and seeking reelection.
Dr. AoreB is oontestiag my election. Why is in: opposing my
seeking a third term? Your city is
in a belter financial condition than
it has ever been. There ia no question of especial controversy between the citizens. There is uolhr,
ing to gained by a change at tbe
present time.
Dr. Acres can not offer you nny
more than I can, having due regird
to sound finances or fair and equitable treatment.
I buve served you two years hb
Mayor; Dr. Acris. has had three
years in oflice. I earned my promotion by two years ol   hard   work
Ladies and Gentlemen:

The Objects of this Institution, for which Incorporation was recently obtained, are: 'fo provi l.j a Some tn I Refuge for Baby and Infant Blind; to
provide froe Sei'intifie Uu'e, ["raining and Maintenance; to Save the Lives of
even a f'iw of tho many of sujh unfortunates, who, for the lack of such ser»
vice, perish every year; and to return .these iittle ones to their parents, at
sohool ago with normal, healthy bodios and sound minds."
This is a large aud jjrjatly nooded Child Welfare Service. Careful enquiry
at the Government ofBcos in tho verioua provinces reveals the fact that there
are at tlio preaant time nearly 250 Infant Blind in the Dominion. Nothing
has yet boon done for those helpless little ones. In the United States, 16
years ago, the flrst home. wt»s opened in New York City; they have now homes
in 13 States, all doing excolletit work. In England, some time ago, Sir Arthur Pearson organized "Sunshine House," Chorley Wood, for Blind Babins,
and he claims that it is the only one in the British Empire. Let us have the
SECOND in Canada. To roach this worthy end money is urgently required.
Fifty Thousand Dollara is the present objective of the Boaid, While the
Home is to be looatod in Ottawa it will take in tho Baby Blind from overy
province, ao that this APPEAL for funds will be Dominion wide, and an
early and generous response is confidently expected. Cheques should bo made
payable to the Canadian Blind Babies Home Association. All .remittances
I will be promptly acknowledged. I
