Goat of ProductionShould
Be the Basis on Whieh
Fruit Tb Sold, Says H.
According to the Penticton
Herald,. Mr. Barnard, manager of the Occidental Fruit
company's packing house in
Penticton, says the reports
regarding the heavy crop ofj
soft fruit expected this season are premature and not
warranted. In support of this,
he contends that it is impossible to estimate the crop by
the blossom, and says owing
to the fact that several growers are cutting or have cut
out the soft fruits planted as
fillers in their orchards, the
total crop will be materially
In an interview with The
Herald he said: "It is too
early at present to arrive at any estimate of tbe soft fruit crop.'It is
even imposseble to estimate the orop
when the fruit is first set. An approximate idea of what it will be is
•11 tbat oan be ascertained until
later in the season."
He then Went on tn add that he
knew several growers who were pre
viously large producers of soft frnit,
had tbis year out out tbe filers in
tbeir orchards. T.ie, be contended,
would out down tbe soft fruit ton
nage, particularly tbat of peaches,
to su b an extent tbat it would show
up in the totals. He Baid he expected to see tbe soft fruit tonnage de
creased every year for tbat eame
In discussing the marketing situ*
ation, be olaimed tbat tbe growers
had never yet got down to a proper
basis, as men in other lines of business had been compelled to do. Tbe
grower was out to make all be could,
whioh was all right, but it did not
give tbe shipper any proper basis
upon wbicb to work. He considered
growers, like otber business men,
should figure out the cost of production of the various kinds of fruit,
add to this a reasonable percentage
to cover interest on tbe investment,
and insist on receiving that price or
a guarantee of that price as a mini
mum from all shippers alike. Under
these circumstance], be said, tbe
shippers would have a definite basis
upon whicb to work, and if any
shipper oould produce a better return for the grower tbat firm would
reap the benefit by extending its
business and being entrusted witb
the handling of more produce
on tbe matter of thorough cultivation. If the work is properly done
at the right time tbere will be little
difficulty in controlling tbe weeds.
In cultivation of tbe garden small
toolb implements should be used to
prevent ridgeing or furrowing. Frequent cultivation kill tbe weeds between tbe rows before tbey become
large, but handwork will be neces-
ssry to keep tbe soil stirred between]
tbe plants and to keep down weeds
in tbe rows. Tbe following tools are
desirable aids in tbe task of laying
out and prepa'iring a garden: A tape
line 50 or 100 feet long, stakes, a
long line to reach the full length of
tbe row, a spading fork, a boe, a
garden rake, a trowel. To this last
might well bc added a scratch weed-
er, a pointed boe aod sucb others as
tbe individual gardener bas preference for.
Throughout that portion of tbe
country wbere rains occur frequently during   the growing season,  it
sbould not be necessary to water tbe
garden in order to produce tbe ordinary garden crops. In any case tbe
water should not be applied till need
ed and then should be put on till the
soil   is   thoroughly   soaked.   After
watering the soil  should   he  cultivated as soon as dry, and no   more
water  sbould   be applied   till tbe
plants show tbe need of it. Constant
or excessive watering is very detri
mental to plant growth in any case.
Apply tbe water at any   time of the
day tbat is most  convenient  and
wben tbe plants require it, but* the
evening will  be found to give best
results, especially in bot weather.   '
Protection from animal depredations is one of the first requisites of
a  successful garden. Wire netting
or a close board fence will   often be
found necessary aod will give thor«
ougb protection.   Garden crops are
also subject to a_t->ck by a number
of insects and diseases.    For   these,
preyentive measures   are best,  but
there are now ou tbe market numerous fungicide and insecticide preparations wnicb are quite effective and
at tbe same time, botb simple  and
convenient to use.   It will be necessary, however, to make sure of the
exact nature of the partibular disease
or insect and also to take into consideration the nature of tbe plant
and its nearness to maturity before
applying any such chemical. >

Ottawa, May 15.—The Canadian
navy is to receive a drastic cut. To
a closely attentive house, Hon. G.
P. Graham minister of defense, on
Friday announced tbe naval policy
of the present government. In brief,
it provides for:
1. Five ships are to be laid up.
These are tbe oruiser Aurora and
lbe destroyers Patriot and Patrician,
presented to Canada by Great Britain after the armistice. Tbe otber
two are submarines.
2. Canada's naval force will consist of tbree Hhips on each coast,
namely,a small Bbip and two trawlers
as tenders at botb Halifax and
3. Tbe three --hips on either coast
are to be used for training a volunteer force in protection of shores
aod harbors, mine sweeping and
mine laying.
4. Protection and care of wharves
and docks at Halifax and Esquimalt
to be oontinued, witb provision of a
reserve force of officers and men
numbering 233. With the exception
of four, all officers from the royal
navy sre to be returned.

New York, May 15.—At
the annual meeting of Granby
Consolidated Mining, Smelting & Power company, C. V.
Jenkins was elected a director, in place of William Paine.
The other directors were reelected.
It was announced that, due
to delay ia receiving reports
from Anyox property, publication
of the statement covering 1921 operations would belayed a week. Production from Anyox last year totalled 29,270,651 pounds of copper.
Silver output was about half tbat of
the preceding year. Copper sales
were around 87,000,000 pounds,
against 19,000,000 in 1920.
Remarkable progress was made in
cost reduction, tbe cnairman added.
Cost of producing copper last year
was 11.63ca pound, against 15.94c
in 1920. Total revenues from operations were around $7,250,000 and
net income, after charges, about
112,838, compared witb a loss of
something like $687,000 in 1920.
Efficiency is increasing, be added,
and today tbe company haB one of
the best organizations in its history.
Tbree wage reductions were made
last year. The company has no labor
troubles. Tbe Phoenix property has
been abandoned. Tbere are something like 500,000 tons of ore still
at tbe property. Grand Forks smelter has been dismantled.
The First Effort in British
Columbia to Further
Manufacture Copper
Among the outstanding en
largements of the industrial
horizon of British Columbia
is the installing of a copper
rod mill at Trail by the Con
solidated Mining & Smelting
company, at a cost of $250,*
000. This is the first effort to
further manufacture of copper products in British Columbia, Although the copper production of the province bas for years
ranged bigh in tbe total of the Dominion. •
The ultimate results of tbis Bhould
be almost as far-reaching in the copper industries as the establishment
of a steel rolling mill would be in
the steel industry.
Wire and nail works could at any
time commence manufacture of copper wire for local or export use.
Further development in tbis line
should bring immediate results, and
make it possible for companies man-
ufactueing electrical equipment in
British Columbia to compete and
sell their products in the world
markets. It is a comparatively easy
and inexpensive matter for electrical
firms to put in the necssary insulating equipment for handling wire in
the manufacture of electrical appliances.—Vancouver Sun.
as to swarming. Some colonies make
no attempt lo swarm even if swarming is general; other colonies will
respond to simple dreventive measures, wbile others will persist io
swarmiDg until the storing instinct
is completely subordinated and the
desire to swarm is satisfied.
Colonies may often be prevented
by: The introduction of a young
queen early in tbe season; giving
plenty of room for maximum brood
production prior to and during the
early part of tbe main honey flow;
providing plenty of super room for
the storage of honey; giving adequate
shade and ventilation during tbe hottest part of the season; raising a few
combs of emerging brood to a super
two or tbree weeks in succession to
relieve congestion of tbe brood cbam
ber at the time tbe main flow commences.
Colonies that bave made advanced preparation for swarming by
having larvae in queed cells often
require more drastic treatment.
In localities wbere the swarming
season is short the separation of
queen and brood is usually effective.
All brood is taken from the brood
chamber and placed in a super
above a queen excluder. Tbe brood
chamber is tben filled with empty
combe and the queen witb some of
tbe bees from the brood combs are
left below in tbe brood chamber.
All queen cells in the super containing the raised brood can be destroyed nine days later.
A more effective method is to remove the queen from the colony at
the time the first active queen cells
are discovered and to destroy the
cells. Nine days later again examine
the colony and destroy all queen
celle and introduce a young laying
It. is a good plan to keep the
queen's wings clipped, for should a
swarm emerge tbe queen will be unable to fly and will fall to the ground
when she leaves the hive. The queen
must be found and caged wbile the
swarm is in tbe air and the parent
colony moved to a new stand. A
new hive fitted with drawn combs
or full sheets of foundation is placed
on the vacant stand and the swarm
will return, wben tbe queen can be
released and allowed to run in with
the swarm the supers from the parent bive should be given to the
swarm. All queen cells except one
should be destroyed in the parent
colony to prevent afterswarme, or all
cells may be destroyed and a young
laying queen introduced.—C. B.

Canadians everywhere will
recall with pride the standing
made  by Canada at the Imperial fruit show in   London
last year, and growers, more
especially in British   Columbia and   Ontario,  will be interested  in   the progress of
plans for this year.   The date
has been definitely   fixed  for
October 27 to November 4 a't
the Crystal Palace,  and the
closing date   for entries for
Canapa is September 25, that
is, the entries must be in the
hands of C. W. Baxter, the
fruit commissioner for Canada, at Ottawa, on that date.
All exhibits must be delivered at the Crystal Palace not
later than October 24.   Forsyth Smith, special fruit commissioner for Canada,  with   headquarters at Liverpool, together  witb
tbe agents   general for the   various
provinces, bas been working bard on
tbe securing of better conditions for
Canadian apples tban were enjoyed
last year.
Tbe dates of the show will be
somewhat of a disappointment to
Canadian exhibitors, as tbe show is
mainly for tbe purpose of advancing
tbe selling of apples. And Canadian
commercial varieties suitable for tbis
market will bave to be picked and
packed by September 25, wbicb does
not give tbem time to mature to tbe
greatest perfection, wbile English
exhibitors will be able to allow tbeir
applesjto remain on the trees until
October 15.
To give a concrete example of tbe
disadvantage of tbe early date, British Columbia Jonathans have never
reached tbe English market before
November 8, with the single exception ot 1921, whicb was a very early
season. English exhibitors wanted
tbe show as early as October 20,an6r
it wbb only by vigorous protest that
Canada won even as late a date as
October 27 to November 8.

The control of swarming is one of
tbe most important factors of bee
keeping. Swarming is the natural
method by wbich bees increase; tbis
causes a division of tbe working
iorce of the colony, which in turn is
a hindrance to tbe best results in
boney production.
Tbe beekeeper's problem at tbe
beginning of tbe honey flow is to
prevent a disvision of the working
force of tbe colony and at the same
time to maintain tbe storing instinct
of tbe bees to the utmort degree.
Colonies do not all behave alike

Roughly tbe distances are: Cardiff to

Massachusetts is slightly embarrassed to
find  that it owes $32,000 to a  California
woman, the principal and interest of a note
for .$03.62 that the commonwealth gave to
one of her ancestors. The incident shows how
fruitful may be the plan of a  main town  to
put away a few hundred dollars every ten
years to remain on interest for a century. The
sunf of $1000 put out at compound interest
this year would amount to $32,000 in 2022.
This way of making money would probably
become popular if the masses had a stronger

Many a person thinks that he could write

and what end to aim at. Well, here is a go od
beginning: "I saw in the catalogue where you

Here are some things that are often overlooked and yet are at the bottom of many a
farmer's troubles. Many farms are too small
to be profitable, owing to the fact that the
outlay for equipment, buildings, insurance,
etc., is as large on 80 acres as on 160 or 200
acres. Crop yields should be much larger per
acre, and often the extra ten or twenty bushels
represents the profit above cost of production
Too much of the live stock on farms is of the
scrub variety, which means a low return on
live stock investment. Addition of limestone,
crop rotation with legumes, aud the use of
proper fertilizers will on most farms mean
larger yields per acre, and the use of purebred
sires in all branches of live stock will mean a
a better grade of beef and pork at lower cost
of production and higher prices for breeding
stock. Poor management iu regard to labor,
both horse and man, is found many times.
Failure to do the odd jobs in slack times
means delay in the busy season. Unnecessary
machinery, carelessness and waste are other
factors which spell defeat.

According to a statembi.t made by Prof.
Alexander Petrunkevitcli, of Yale University,
the present government in Russia is just dragging itself along, and remains in power for the
sinple reason there is no one else to whom
the rule may be passed. But it is bound to
fall—how soon no one may say at this time.
The ultimate result of the revolution will
probably be the splitting up of Russia into a
number of small states. If this happens, it is
eventually possible these states would be
bound together by some sort of union. Under
the mle of the soviet the youth of Russia has
degenerated mentally, physically and morally.
As a result of the war and the revolution, the
great intellectual leaders and the educated
classes have vanished. To whom, then, must
Russia turn for teachers for her schools? To
Germany, of cour.se. There is the great danger
to Russia and to the entire world, for trade
and commerce will follow such an intellectual
invasion, and the peacful Germanization of
Russia will be complete? The present Russian government should  not be   recognized"

Vernon, B.C.—The Canadian Pacific Railway has completed at
Okanagan Landing an extemion of
its ice house at that point, giving
about 20 per cent, additional storage capacity. Besides this then will
be an improved method of icing car*
which will enable the workmen to
crush the required ice in advance of
arrival of cars, so that when ean
eonie ott the lake, the loads may ba
[mt to ice house and the entire train
ced with one movement of the
•witch engine. This _ should materially hasten the movement of tht
fruit from Okanagan Landing. It
Is expected that cars will be teed
In about four minutes each.
The amount of ice put up at
Okanagan Landing this year is 8,500
tons. It was brought from Banff

be adequate for a very prosperous
How medical advice was conveyed
by wireless and acted upon with
beneflt to the sufferers was told by
Dr. E. W. Drury, surgeon of the
Canadian Pacific liner "Metagama,"
upon the arrival of that vessel from
Canada at Liverpool.
During the Metagama's eastward run five wireless messages
were received from three steamers,
Tin., "Canadian Raider," "Dun.
bridge," and "Agadir," asking for
(1) With regard to the treatment
of the chief engineer of the "Canadian Raider," who was suffering
from kidney disease.
(2) A man on the "Dunbridge,"
who had sustained a severe crushing of one of his hands.
(8) A fireman who bad been the
victim of a serious accident on the
Five replies were sent at the instigation, of Dr. Drury, the "Metagama" being at the time at least 200
miles distant from the vessels
Replies were that satisfactory
progress was attending the treatment of patients in accordance with
Dr. Drury's instructions. " /
Calgary.—"I did the company out
nf $2.50 and I have hardly been able
to steep ever since. I enclose a remittance for this amount. I am
asm fer what I've done."
This was what a man now residing in Eastern Canada wrote J. B.
Proctor, Distrlot Passenger Agent
of ths Canadian Pacific Railway. Hs
apparently has been much troubled
over sines hs "put it over," and has .
done what his conscience dictated,
"•■a a-u_ ***-*.** manv ai those kir-
of letters" asked a press representative when Mr. Proctor showed him
the letter? "Oh, yes, quite a lot,"
said the District Passenger Agent,
"probably on the average one a
month in this division alone. 1 cannot say what it might be before
the whole of the Canadian system.
Of course 1 am referring to'the passenger department alone for (here
are many others.' Mr. Proctor called for his "conscience" fyle, which
bore out his remark that lt is a very
frequent occurrence for people "to
lose sleep" after defrauding the
company. Some of these run into
fairly large amounts; for instance,
one of them some little time ago returned the company $75. He had
taken advantage of a settler's rate,
but instead of going on the land he
went to Vancouver and engaged in
some other occupation. On ona
occasion a man wrote enclosing $5,
of which amount he said he had defrauded the company, and this occurred many years ago.
Montreal.—The Dominion Express
Company have had in operation in
Montreal during the past few
months a unique system for the conveyance of Express shipments in
transfer between stations in the
city, and the distribution of delivery
and collection shii*mfyits in districts
situated tour and tive miles irom
the railway stations. This is the
tractor trailer system. The tractors
are simply two-ton bucks, with a
fifth wheel or turning plate mounted on the .chassis in place of the
ordinary truck body; and in the centre of this fifth wheel is one portion
of the automatic coupling device.
The trailers are large, completely
enclosed bodies. With a capacity of
three and a half tons, or 518 ft. cubic
measurement, each mounted on two
rear wheels, with solid rubber tyres.
and two small front wheels, with
folding legs, to hold the trailer up
and permit of movement to any desired position when free from the
tractor. On the front of the chassis
of the trailer are two small wheels
for mounting the track of the fifth
wheel on the tractor, and permitting
turning of the equipment within a
small radius when coupled up; also
the other portion of the coupling device by which the tractor and trailer
are coupled up.
The process of coupling and uncoupling is a matter of seconds only,
merely involving the raising of a
lever. The driver never leaves hi?
seat. On the road the trailer brake*'
Itself automatically.
The station staffs attend to Iln
loading and unloading of thu trail
«r«. which handle fortv to fifty lnad^
daily. The two tractors are con
tinually in motion hauling these
trailers (one at a time) from one
station to another and travelling
from ninety to 100 miles each daily,
Tha whole system is operated on a
regular schedule. For delivery and
pick-up, too, the trailers are used as
By this system the movement ni
transfer has been expedited, station,
have been kept clear of transfer
matter, and economies have been
effected over the relatively slowc
movement and smaller capacity ol
wagon transfer.

Two weeks ago The Sun said that
it bad been informed by a promi
nent fruit grower that every grower
in tbe val ey except one bad signed
the O.U.G.'b five-year contract.
Tbere seems to bave been some mis
take about tbis statement. Tbe Sun
reporter was discussing O-U.G. affairs witb the gjower, and iu tbe
course of tbe conversation asked
bow many ranchers had signed the
five-year contract, meaning tbe con
tract witb tbe O.U.G.'s selling
agency. Tbe gentleman gave the
answer printed at tbe time, but instead of meaning the Okanagan
•agency, be bas since explained tbat
be meant a five year contract witb
Ite Grand Forks Cooperative Growers' ' exchange to have tbe fruit
packed at tbe local packingt house.
This contract, we understand, has
nothing to do with tbe marketing

R. Campbell and son Kenneib

Sunday. Mr. Campbell states that

tbat the government irrigation system for the soldier settlement area
is a big success.
Speaking of irrigation, a religious -
ly inclined gentleman the other day
drew The Sun's attention to tbe fact
tbat the Creator had iastalled very
good irrigation systems both in the
main valley and the North For k
valley. Instead of making a straigh t
ditch, He bad made a serpentine
one so as to resch every section of the
district. The moral tbis geutlema n
wished to convey was, tbat if tbe
people were too indolent to take the
water out of tbe main dltob and
distribute it on lbe land they did not
deserve prosperity.

On June 20 next a parliament of
Canada's business men, or as it is
more generally termed, the annual
convention of the Canadian Manufacturers' Association will meet at
beautiful St. Andrews-by-the-Sea
New Brunswick. Prom all over Canada leading business men will be
gathered together to discuss matters of interest to the trade and commerce of the Dominion and, inci-
dently, to enjoy the delights to be
found in the historic and beautiful
neighborhood of St. Andrews.
The C. M. A. convention goes to
St. Andrews this year because it is
the turn of the Maritime Provinces
and beca.-?- Its nearness to the
bome of thu resident, W. S. Fisher
of St. John, N.B. About three years
ago the Association was organized
into five territorial divisions, Maritime, Quebec, Ontario, Prairie and
British Columbia, and the annual
meetings are held in rotation in
these divisions. In 1920 the convention was held at the Hotel Vancouver, Vancouver; last year at the
Chateau Frontenac, Quebec, and
this year it goes to the Algonquin
Hotel, St. Andrews, famous as an
important centre for all land and
water summer sports.
About 300 members of the association will be present and the
subject of Canada's export trade being at tins time of supreme importance will receive more   than   usual
attention in the various reports presented. Prospects for an extension
of trade with the West Indies will
also be considered as a result of tho
visit of a large number of members
there during the past winter.
St. Andrews has -an interesting
history dating back to the seventeenth century. It saw the early
struggles between the French and
English and it was later a garrisoned border town enjoying all tha
excitement of a border town in wai
times. Its streets were laid out in
1784 and some of the quaint buildings of early colonial days still
stand. The little town has important fishing industries.
