Sunday night the Rock
Candy mill at Lynch creek
was mi-iaculously saved from
the flames. This was only
accomplished by an almost
superhuman effort^ on the
part of the fire fighters.
The slashings around the
mill were, it is said, very
thick and the fire burned
fiercely, compelling the men
to fight the flames with water
buckets on their hands and
knees in order to find some
relief from the intense heat
and dense smoke.
Monday Frank Coryell of
this city had 100,000 posts
and 1000 poles destroyed by
toe fire. It is said he had
some insurance, but his loss
is quite heavy. Mike Maida
of Fife also had 1000 large
poles consumed by the flames,
and this is supposed to be a
total loss to the owner. The

to have had a close call
in getting some of its rolling
stock away-from the creek;

Serious losses are caused eacb
year in Canadian beekeeping by
many beekeepers failing to replace,
witb young and prolific queene, the
old and failing queens in their
colonies. Witb our more progressive
beekeepers it is becoming a common
practice lo systematically requeen
each colony every two years, and io
some cases to requeen every yean as
young queens are more prolific as a
rule tban queens more tban one year
In requeening the apiary It is hot
advisable to allow the bees to rear
their own queens promiscuously,
but to adopt some method of queen
rearing by wbicb only queens from
the best strains are produced,thereby
improving the strain of bees kept.
Although queens can be safely introduced at any time.during tbe active season, the beet time of tbe year

Ripe queen cells or mated queens
can be* used. Tbe giving of ripe
queen cells is perhaps the easiest
method of requeening, but tbere is
■(danger of queen cells being destroyed or the young queen being
lost on her mating flight, leaving the
colony hopelessly queenlees. Tbe
system recommended is to rear
queens by the cell cup method at
tbe commencement of the main
honey flow from clover and to have
queens mated from small nuclei,
specially prepared for that purpose.
As the queens become mated and
laying tbe queen of the colony to be
requeenedcan be destroyed and the
young laying queen introduced.
Where only • tew queens are ren
quired and the beekeeper is unable
to rear his own, they can be obtained at a nominal price from a been

Before introducing a new queen
be sure that tae colony is queenlees
and that no queen ce'ls are present.

As soon as a colony is making
preparations for swarming by having larvae in queen cells at tbe beginning of the main honey flow
from clover, the old queen is removed from the hive aod all tbe

later all queen cells are again de
stroyed and a young laying queen
of select parentage is introduced.

Granby Company
Bells Two Blocks
of Treasury Stock
A report from Boston states lhat
the Granby Consolidatedd Mining,
Smelting <fe Power company bos
completed its immediate financing
program through tbe sale of two
blocks of treasury stock, which bas
increased tbe amount outstanding
to approximately 100,000 shares.
The company recently offered for
subsctiption to shareholders at $25
a share a block of 30,000 shares.
About 70 per cent was subscribed.
Funds required to liquidate the Brit
ish Columbia retroactive taxes for
1917 aod 1918 were obtained
through the sale of some 9000 addi
tionai shares of treasury stock, net
ting the company $30 a share. The
property has got its production back
to normal capacity, witb the output
from its four-furnace smelter run«
ning at the rate of 30,000,000 pounds
of copper per annum. Cost of pro
duction continues to show a steady
This disease is first seen on potato
plants about tbe latter part of July,
with the most severe effects from the
middle of August to the first week
io September. The leaves exhibit a
burning at their tips and margins,
later the whole top withers aod the
plant dies prematurely. This condition iB most noticeable in hot, dry,
windy weather and particularly during periods of dry aod sunny weather following rain.
With regard to tbe cause of this
disease, tbere is mucb difference of
opinion, and several agencies bave
been suggested as responsible for
tbe burning of tbe leaves. Tbe effect
of excessive evaporation of water
from the surface of leaves in extreme
beat and sunshine with the consequent death of certain cells in the
leaf, has been suggested as tbe cause
of tip burn, Other authorities claim
to have definitely demonstrated tbat
the potato leaf hopper is the cause
of tip burn; thus tbe name "hopper
burn," which is also applied lo this
disease. More recent investigators
associate' tbe leaf hopper with the
disease, but claim that there is some
"specific," either normal or extraneous, which is transmitted by the
hopper und is the direct cause of
tbe bnrning oo tbe potato leaves.
Tbis was shown by the fact tbat tip
burn could be produced by innocu-
lating macerated leaf hoppers into
potato leaves.
The regular Bordeaux mixture
spray has been found to be beneficial in the control of this disease.
Tboie believing in extreme heat
aud sunshine as the principal causal
agency,  associate   this control witb

The id9a of planting trees as memorials for
soldiers wbo   fought in the great   war has
taken remarkable hold and thousands of trees
will be used next fall for this purpose. "Plant
a tree for mother," urges an eastern editor,
"and  let  it always be known as "Mother's
tree.'"   A bit   of  sentiment like that will
bring a light to her eyes.   Better a lovely
growing graceful elm tree now than flowers
when she is gone.   Associate your trees by
name with members of your family and the
trees come  to seem like  members of your
family. A humble home, with beautiful shade
trees and shrubs about it, is   much more attractive   than a treeless palace.    On one of
the seignories   of  Quebec, the head of the

each identified with a son, daughter or grandchild. Today, the trees have grown to great
size but the tender associations remain.

A honeybee stung a man who lived in Pine
Brook, New Jersey, on the temple the other
day, and in ten minutes the man was dead.
The newspaper account said that several beekeepers and at least one physician in the
neighborhood declared that a bee sting on the
knee or on the temple was usually fatal. The
coroner, however, thought that death was the
result of excitement and shock working on a
weak heart. What do the medical men and
the bee fanciers among our readers think
about the seriousness of bee stings ou the
It takes a clever installation of telephone
equipment to pick up, transfer and broadcast
by radio the proceedings of a general meeting
in a large auditorium, but it was recently
shown in New York that it can be done. It
may not be a great while before anyone who
will drop his regular work long enough to
listen can hear the debates in parliament.
Milk and dairy products generally are of
inestimable food value to the human race, and
their comparatively moderate cost makes them
accessible to practically every one. Further
than that, the products ofthe dairy add immensely to the wealth of the country. It'is a
question if the people of Canada sufficiently
appreciate either the economic value of the
dairy industry to the country at large, or the
food value of milk and its products to the individual. In Britain the consumption of
cheese per capita greatly exceeds ours. In
butter we do better; but in milk our consump
tion individually has been shown to be one-
quarter of a pint compared with half a pint
per head in the United States. Since that advent of prohibition, however, the United
States consumption has increased to thaee-
quarters of a pint, and there is evidence to
show that Canadians are also taking a great
deal more to the lacteal fluid than formerly.
The importance of milk in the diet to both
young and old is constantly being emphasized
by the medical profession. Malnutrition or
undernourishment, it should be understood, is
not always the result of insufficient food, but
frequently of unwisely and improperly chosen
foods. This is supported by the fact that in -
vestigation has shown that a lafge percentage
of undernourished children are the offspring of
well-to-do parents. The thoughtful mother
will see that her childreu get plenty, of milk
from which to build a strong framework, develop mental capacity and good health. Future happiness depend largely on these factors.
The Japanese problem in California,says an
eastern exchange, has a counterpart in Japan
itself, where a great many Chinese coolies, imported during boom times, are carrying on a
spirited competition with Japanese workmen.
Since the Uhihose are willing to live on a scale
lower than the Japanese laborers, they are
displacing the Japanese, and the Japanese are
naturally indignant. .Thegovernment is at a
loss how to handle the situation to advantage.
Deporting the Chinese might have embarrassing consequences if the Japanese should wish
to make any more complaints to America.
A distinguished American who has just re -
turned from Brazil says of the country: "It is
another United States in the making." Brazil
is larger than the United Statos by an area
as large as the state of Texas, its natural resources, though different, are as great as those
of the United States, and its industry and
population grow almost as fast. Except that
it has all the modern methods of doing things,
it stands in the march of development virtually wheie the United States stood in 1870.
This year it is celebrating the one hundredth
anniversary of its independence.

exchange and an organization of skilled
workers to facilitate commerce. Every
circuit must be tested; every inch of wire
watched and kept in repair; every switchboard operated day and night. Not only
that, but there is always new construction to meet the increasing needs of the
telephone-using public. Crews of linemen andcablemen, and installers of every
kind of telephone equipment carry on
this work as the province progresses.
The Gentleman's Defense

TENTING under the pines and
stars ef ths northland has a
•term that draws more and more
vacationists each summer. The eastern provinces of Canada are particularly popular in this respect. There
are camps for girls, for boys, for
men, for woman ana for everybody
all together.
Down in drowsy, delightful Nova
Scotia there is Camp Mooswi on
Lake Annis near the picturesque seaport of Yarmouth, and a bit farther
up the Bay of Fundy, in Digby County, is Aldercliffe Camp, both of which
are boys' camps of long established
reputation and deservedly popular
Thirty miles by good motor road.
from historic Annapolis Royal, is
located Kedgemakooge Rod and Gun
Club.* It is not as exclusive as its
name implies, but is open to all who
love the wilds.   The club is situated
in a veritable mm of lovely waterways. Fishing and hunting are unexcelled and draw many sportsmen
in season. Cozy cabins equipped
with running water and electric
lights, supplemented by tents, insure privacy, while the elub house
with Its spacious public rooms affords a social center.
Across the bay from Nova Scotia
we find the Bryn Derwyn Camps, on
Lake Utopia near the town of the
,s-inf name in New Brunswick. This
is a pleasant family camp with furnished cottages and tents. Boating
and fishing are but two of Bryn
Derwyn's charms.
The Province of Quebec and its
fascinating Laurentian Mountains
provide plenty of fine sites for camps
nnd rustic summer resorts. A A new
camp for girls is being opened on
Lake Ouareau and will be known as
Camp Ouareau. lt is reached by •

No less than throe big camps aro
maintained on the islands of Lake
Timagami in Ontario. They are
Wabi-Kon for both men and women;
Keewaydin Camp with 200 members—all Americans—and Camp
Timagami for boys. Fine bathing
beaches, superb scenery and good
fishing are some of their i, attractions. Trout Lake Lodge on
Trout Lake near the French River

to land a string of bass, they being
i very plentiful in Trout Lake. ,

Northwest Apple
Crop to Be Lighter
The total apple crop jf tbe Pacific
Northwest is estimated at 31,802,000
boxes, or 8,327,000 boxes less than
last year and 2,722,000 boxes more
than the crop two years ago.
Tbe commercial apple crop estimate, soon to be announced by the
government, will io doubt show the
same ratio. The decrease in the west
is more than offset by tbe heavy
increase in production io the east
era barreled apple sections. These
conditions were to be expected, as
last year tbe boxed apple districts
of tbe northwest bad a heavy crop,
wbile tbe eastern yield was light.
Fruit crop condition*** throughout

000 cars of fruit from fruit belts of

The fruit branch ofthe Dominion
department of agriculture strongly
urges strawberry growers to give
more attention to the picking, pack-
ing and shipping of their fruit. It
pays, tbe last circnlar says, to put
enougb berries io each box to assure
that wben tbey arrive on the mar

than the top of tbe box. It adds:
"The imports into Canada of United
States strawberries this year have
more tban doubled tbose for a num
ber of years past and the fruit-
clean, well colored aod In well-filled

Port Arthnr. — The International
Union of Hungry Hoboes, in so far
as its membership affects Port
Arthur and Port William will suffer
a depletement in its ranks this summer. At Navilus the first station
east of Port Arthur, there are located a couple of plain clothea
policemen who are gathering tho
bos into the long arms of the law.
One day the officers brought seven
knights of the road into Port Arthur.
Hunting was good during next day,
too, when a party of nine arrived on
Number One to keep the others company. In Port Arthur Police Court
each was fined $20 or one month hi
prison.   They were taken to the jail.

advantage of the new service. Tha
schedule of the train calls for tho
delivery of the passengers in Chicago in seventy-two hours and those
who are going to the Atlantic will
be able to catch their boats there
for the Old Country in quicker time
than ever before. The equipment of

also attached to the Imperial Limited to accommodate tlie large number of passengers who crossed the

to keep in close touch with its good
times. There is no trace of "Institution" about the home where the girls
go and come in the freest possible
manner under the kindly supervision
of the Lady SupeHntendent who
soon becomes also their mother-confessor and best friend in the country. The big lofty rooms are furnished with artistic Jret homely taste,
and the girls' own sitting-room, with
big chairs and couches and a piano,
is an ideal spot for friendly gatherings and jolly afternoons and evenings.
During the year of 1920 about
1,400 women and girls from the old
land were entertained in some way
by the hostel. Many of the girls
came to Montreal without prospect
of work, without connections or even
acquaintances in this country. The
employment bureau of the hostel
found positions for those wishing to
remain in Montreal without charge
to them, and afterwards kept In
touch with them to see that they
were, happy j;nd contented and had
met with fair treatment.
As the lergest field by far for
women's work in Canada ii domestic service., the girls, if at all capable in that direction, can be placed
directly in good homes in the citiv.
If further training is necessary the
hostel arranges for classes in house
work, and a few lessons in Canadian
methods of housekeeping, which may

No matter how comfortable the
home, however, the girl alone in a
strange community longs for recreation and the companionship of young
people with a glimpse of faces from
'"over there." This is where Dorchester House again steps in. The
house is open to the girls at all
times and they may obtain any one
of the three meals a day for the
small charge of a shilling, a quarter
in Canadian Monev. The use of the
recreation rooms is entirely free of
charge. There is never a day goes
by that the girls do not drop in for
tea and a visit. Thursday afternoons
and evenings are gala occasions
every week, for Thursday is a half-
holiday for the domestics in most
Canadian homes. The girls come to
tea alone or In groups, and the meal
fi not well over when the rugs are
rolled baek from the sitting-room
floor and a dance is in full swing.
At all times the girls send their
parcels, and got their mall at Dorchester House, and come wifh their
troubles and sometimes "bring a
grouch and leave without it," in the
words of the Lady Superintendent.
In cases of illness the hostel arranges for the girls entering a hospital if necessary, and if a rest is
all that is required the patient can
arrange to stay at the hostel. At
the Christmas season holiday feasts
at Dorchester House are the order
of the day. Several of the city
churches, as well as the hostel
authorities, provide entertainments
for the girls, and sometimes from
160 to 200 guests attend these
