But Portland and Seattle folks are

The earwig is a species of cockroach
capable of destroying all vegetation.
Science calls, him "euplexoptera."
A few y ars ago he reached Seattle
in a shipment of plants from Holland.
People didn't take him seriously then,
but today his depredations cause consternation.

A few weeks after hatching, the
coy earwig crawis only at night and
is fond of soft foods, Meal, filled with
strong poisons, is being distributed
nightly by special crews. All efforts
are being centered in putting this
drive over—for, after a few weeks,
the earwig is impervious to poison,
gas or anything but a club.
In the earwig, nature combined the
objectionable pr clivities of the cut
worm, caterpillar, cockroach, bedbng
and body lonse. He destroys foliage,
orchard fruit, makes nests under cars-
pets in homes, infests clothing and
carries disease germs.
Therefore, Portland and Seattle
are sitting up nights carrying food to
the little earwig. And to prevent a
spread of the scourge, the govern"
ment is lending assistance.

and it is conceded by all shades of

It Rained Gats and Dogs
-And Other Things
Frequently after a hard rain
storm some one will remark,
"It rained cats and dogs last
night." Recently a tourist in
Oregon—a man, by the way,
who was in the habit of using
the phrase—met with an experience that for the moment
at least may have caused him
to wonder-whether the phrase
did. not sometimes express
the literal truth.
He and his nephew were
riding in an au'omobile when
a severe electric storm over -
took them. Since there was
nothing in sight to shelter
.tbem from the downpour,thoy stopped
ut the side of the road and waited for
the storm to oxpend itself. Tho rain
was so heavy that they could hardly
see through the glass of the windshield; but with each flash of light
ning they were able to observe that
large dark objects were falling with
the. water. While they were wondering, something struck the top of the
automobile with a thud. When the
rain slackened they discovered that it
was a duck and that dead ducks lay
scattered all round tbem.
Apparently a current of electricity
had struck the wild fowl while they
were in the air. Those that the tourist
examined bore no visible injuries.
Hon. J. D. MacLean, minister of
education aud railways aud provincial secretary, has returned from a
month's visit to Ottawa and other
Honey was used by tbe ancient
Greeks and Romans to preserve fresh
fruits till tbey were desired. The
method used'was to immerse the
fruit in honey-filled vessels whicb
were covered over so as to keep out
all foreign matter. Tbis is extremely simple, but, nevertheless, reliable
and economical.
To t*st the worth otthis novel way
of preserving, a few pears were put
into a fruit jar and sufficient honey,
warmed enough to flow like oil, was
poured over them lo completely
cover tbem. After being in tbe jar
for several months tbey were removed and found to be sound and
as solid as when placed there. Vegetables having shells can also be kept
fresh and usable by tbe same treat
ment. Several cantaloupes were put
in a large eaitben jar. They were
taken out on Christmas and found
to be in as good condition as the
pears. It is essential not to use overripe fruit; the results will be better,
as -i hard article taken out of tbe
immersion can ba kept in tbe air for
a time before decay sets in.
Sweet corn from wbicb the busks
have been removed, watermelon,
and otber choice articles can be put
away during tbeir season and used
aB wished. This makes it possible to
have cheap fresh fruits and vegetables for tbe table on Christmas,
Easter, oi any other day. None of
the ooney need be wasted.
Une feature of this method is the
fact tbat tbe boney seems to seal Ihe
flavor. Perhaps otber ways are also
satisfactory in preserving fruits, but
this one requires tbe least effort. I
suggest tbat a small amount of fruit
be preserved by honey raiserB first,
so as to get the idea properly
grounded. I am going to try the experiment this coming fall on grapes,
peaches and p'ume. Let us all get
together and belp boost tbe market
for boney.—William A. Braun, in
American Bee Journal.

FRIDAY, JULY 13, 192.3
The ability of a person to pay his bills is
usually accepted as an indication that he is in
at least moderately prosperous circumstances.
The piomptness with which the ratepayers of
Grand Forks paid their taxes this year is
therefore gratifying, as well as a hopeful sign
of the stability of the city and of its growth in
the future. The fact that 99.9 per cent of the
the current year's taxes were paid by the end
of June not only shows that .the property
owners are moderately prosperous, but that
they have enough faith in their property and
in the future expansion of the city to pay
their taxes. As long as this faith is maintained our city is safe.
British Columbia should witness the greatest
influx of tourists this year in the history of the
province. Good road connections on the
mainland and increased "ferry" transportation
to Vancouver island, will undoubtedly attract
many from -"he United States to the beautiful
lakes, mountain resorts, and ideal camping
spots for which the province is famed. Forest
fires last year, with their dense clouds of
smoke, detracted much from the pleasure of
the tourist. In view of the fact that the ma
jority of last year's fires have been attributed
to careless campers and travellers, it behooves
everyone to' be careful with fires when in or
near the woods in order that British Columbia
may continue to be the Mecca of the tourist,
The fact that two banks "went broke" and'
that thousands of people lost all their worldly
possessions over a fake prizefight last week,
is perhaps all the. evidence that is needed to
prove that most of the paople in the world
today are insane. The individuals who lost
their private fortunes should be confined in
a lunatic asylum; for the bank wreckers life
terms in the penitentiary would about fit the

An example of gigantism was recently exhibited in Hungary; a Ilussian peasant thirty-
four years old, who is nine feet three inches
tall and who weighs 458 pounds His hand is
one foot one inch long from finger tip to wrist;

head is t.wenty five inches round. Like Dick-

fie in well separated lanes.    The North  Atlantic already has such a system.
When the war broke out in 1914 M. Paderewski was a rich man, with a fortune made
honestly by the display of his remarkable
musical powers. That fortuno he spent in behalf of Polish independence and in relieving
the hardships of those Poles who had lost
everything during the war. Then after a brief
career as politician end premier at Warsaw he
returned to the practice of his art, with his
skill little if at all impaired by his years of devotion to other affairs. N">w he is reported
to have accumulated another fortune—half a
million dollars is the amount mentioned—from
his concert tour. The story reminds us of the
somewhat similar experiences of Sir Walter
Scott and Mark -Twain, though it was their
task to discharge a heuvy load of actual debt
before beginning to think of a new competence.
The scholar in politics is not unknown in
France, where M. Painleve, who is a famous
mathematician, was not so long ago a minister
and the head of a' cabinet. He is now engaged,
he says, in working out a theory that shall
reconcile the ideas of Newton with those of
Einstein. Like most mathematicians he confuses the common man when he talks. For
example, he says: "Under the old teachings
it was explained that the world turned on its
axis and in space. Of course that s mere talk
for children; no such thing occurs. But such
an explanation must be given so that the
ignorant will have a mental picture of what
the universe is like. Neither the earth northe
stars whirl in space." That leaves us open-
mouthed, and unfortunately M. Painleve stops
there. We should like to knowjust what the
earth does do if it does not turn on its axis,
though we have ao uneasy fear that we are
too ignorant to understand the explanation of
the universe that M. Painleve would call the
true one.
Dr. Remmerich, a learned German his
torian, has essayed the role of prophet. He
predicts civil war between the monarchists
and the anti-monarchists of Prussia; an attempt—for the moment successful—to seat
another Hohenzollern on the throne; the final
overthrow and execution of him; a military
dictatorship supported by the radical parties,
which will make Germany the most powerful
of European states, as the regime of Com-
well and that of Napoleon made England
and France the most powerful nations bf their
respective periods. He believes that soon after
1940-.th'e cycle of revolution will be completed
by the establishment of a limited constitutional monarchy uot unlike that of Great Britain.
Incidentally he predicts the return of the
Romanovs to the Russian throne within three
years and the decline of France to a power of
the second rank. Cut this out and refer to it
now and then during the next twenty years to
see how good Prof. Dr. Kemmerich is at
guessing the future.

Five-sixths of the timbered area of B. C. belongs
to the People.
Eaoh year, it is increasing in value as the more
accessible timber is cut.
In 1922 there was received from the sale of such
timber the sum of $620,000.
This helped to keep your taxes down, and to build
up the Province.
Green Timber is British Columbia's assurance of
Perpetual Prosperity.

One for Canning
During tbe lime ot George ill's
insanity the Prince of Wales, alter-
wards George IV, offered to bet
Richard Brimsley Sheridan, the
dramatist and politician, tbat the
members of parliament would pay
so little attention to the reading of
his speech Irom the throne that be
could interpolate auy nonsense he
liked without anyone's showing sur-
p ise.
Sheridan took the bet. Tbe regent
accordingly paused in the course of
bis address andsaid distinctly,"Baa,
baa, black »beep," and tben went
oo. No one fook any notice of the
strange words. Chagrined at tbe loss
of his wager, Sheridan asked George
Canning if he had noticed anything
"Ob, yes," said Canning, "I beard
the piince say, 'Baa, baa, black
sheep,' but as he was looking
straight at you at tbe time, I took
it for a personal allusion."
In the Crow's Nest
_4*V#ZS:Z~**,««.M y^**^^
tj ^fp,
Rolling up to the Crow's Nest Pass are olive green foothills without u
tree upon them—natural cattle runs clothed with succulent short grass.
Here are seen occasional outcrops of rock, which in their four or five feet of
height show all the characteristics of a mountain range; miniatures of the
Rockies, with crag and precipice and col reproduced on the smallest scale.
With a hag of salt one could lay on glaciers, touch the peaks with white and
have a toy range which any Eastern schoolteacher could set up in her classroom with advantage to herself and her pupils. Canadians east of Medicim
Hat know too little about the construction of this Continent and about th'
glorious engineering of Nature.
Consider the Crow's Nest itself. The name brings before some of us i
schedule of railway-rates; to others, a series of coal mines. These are derivative impressions. The original Crow's Nest is a mountain rising to 9,000
feet and more above sea-level and visible for many miles. The rock-peak, as
one looks from the foothills ia set like a fuzxy, round crow's-nest on the
sky-line. Leading up to lt are the olive-green billows fading into a soft,
blue haze.
In the distance near the peak ls a snow-white precipice, which they tell
us is two miles wide and a mile high. It is all excellence ana loveliness until
one travels twenty miles farther. Then it gleams like the fangs of a wolf.
It is the rock-face of Turtle Mountain, cleft from top to bottom In 1906 to
the destruction of the mining town of Frank.
To-day the whole valley, two 'miles wide, ls a tempestuous chaos ol
white stone blocks, some of them as big as a house, all with jagged edges
and sharp comers. They are piled from fifty to one hundred feet nigh above
the original valley level. The railway line climbs over the debris. Beneath
It lies the broken city. On either Bide of the avalanche stand a few deserted
houses, windows out, glaring like skulls upon the newer town. The whole
valley spells terror and tragedy. Even yet people talk of Pompeii and
Herculaneum, but thev are like to forget the more terrible fate of frank
when rock by millions ol tons fell a mile out of the sky.

The Objects of this Institution, for which Incorporation was recently ob>
tained, 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 many of sujh vrfortunate*, who, for the lack of such service, perish every yoar; and to return these little ones to thoir parents, at
sohool age with normal, healthy bodies and sound minds."
This is a large and graatly needed Child Welfare Service. Careful enquiry
at the Government offices in the various 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
years 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 Ar
-ihur Pearson organized "Sunshine House," Chorley Wood, for Blind Babies,
and he claims that it is the only one iu the British Empire. Let us have the
SECOND in Canada. To reach this worthy end money is urgently required
Fifty Thousand Dollars is the present objective of the Botvid. While the
Home is to be located in Ottiwa it will take in the Baby Blind from every
province, so that this APPEAL for funds will be Dominion wide, and an
early and gonerous response is confitlentlv expected. Cheques should be made
payable to the Canadian Blind liabies Homo Association All remittances
will be promptly acknowledged.

Mountain-Climbing on Vancouver Island
Phone 20
Os—■ Lake staowlnt Mmm ts**a*assS**M In the ste-tanc*.
Vancouver 'Island is becoming famous for many
thingi. Among the chief of these Ti Iti climate, among
the more utilitarian ita strawberries; and among the
tourist attractions its marvellous scenery, and magnificent drives, Its many fascinating trips both by boat and
by rail. But, while tens of thousands of visitors holiday
in the Island every summer, very few of them are aware
of the fact that within less than a day's journey of
Victoria there are mountain peaks covered with perpetual
snow, and massive glaciers, which defy the warmest of
the summer sunshine, where those who enjoy that most
exhilarating sport, mountain-climbing, may put all of
their skill to the teet.
'The most popular mountain from un Alpinist's point
of view Is Arrowsmith. It is about six thousand feet
high, and to reach lt ono travels hy one of the most
magnificent scenic railways on the continent. There Is a
diversity of country all along the hundred miles from
Victoria to Parkesville. Parkesville is on the east
coast of the Island, and Victoria, situated at the extreme
■outh of thc Island is the starting point for the journey.
One of the first summits to bit crossed is that of the splendid Malahat, about fifteen hundred feet above the sea.
Here, from the "Lookout," one looks down on a wonderful panorama of green-embowered hills, narrow winding
waterway.-, the wide stretch of the sea itself and the
Olymptic mountains on the Mainland in their dasallng
dress of ice and snow. After crossing the Malahat there
are miles along tbe shores of the salt water, quick
passages through picturesque villages and towns, journeying* among sweet-scented woods which are always gay
with flowers.
At Parkesvilli; the road divides one branch swinging
toward the west. And there begins the first trek in the
journey which leads to the everlasting hills. A* one
nears Cameron Lake, whether one travels by rail or
highway, one sees the beginning of the vast forest of
Douglas fir, than which thero is no finer stretch of timber
in America.
Just across the Jake from the Chalet one begins the
ascent of Mount Arrowsmith.
The particular day when we made the journey was
in early June. It was sweet and cool near the water, the
bracken thrusting up branchy and tall, maiden-hair
ferns just unfolding, all of the trees and shrubs wearing
their new dresses of fresh, young green.
"* We started at noon, and from the very outset, found
the trail fairly steep. With only occasional stops for
breath, we pushed on for five hours before we made the
Hut, a distance of about 8000 feet up. It was rather'
early in the year for mountaineering and the trail had
not been cleared since the winter storms, which made
our going rather more difficult than It would otherwise
hava been.  But every atop of the way dtavtayed some
Just before the east*.
magnificence of scene that called forth exclamations of
The Hut was practically buried, '.or the anew lay deep
on the upper reaches. It took ua an hour or mora to
tunnel Into it. for although our packer had gone ahead
with the blankets, he could not accomplish much alone.
But we finally dug our way in, cleared the snow from the
windows, made a fire, and before very long the aroma of
boiling coffee and fried ham filled the little cabin, and wc
sat down to eat with ravenous appetites.
The sleep that comes to one on these high, sqowy
altitudes, far above the slightest sound of life, la
dreamless and infinitely refreshing.   We awoke at •
the next morning, full of eagerness to continue the i
which from there on is a real test of strength and endurance.
The final five hundred feet were very steep, and not
without danger for the unwary. We had a few tumbles,
and slides, which only added to the enjoyment, and who
we had pursued our journey to the end our satisfaction
was very great. For it was an objective worth striving
The view was grand beyond conception, snow-peak
all about is, dazzlingly splendid in the sunshine, cloud?
of mist lifting from the valleys, and rolling away to give
a glimpse of lakes blue as periwinkle, of bare cllff-ilde.°
coloured with the tints of the rainbow, and bright, green
valleys, and forests of sturdy little jack-pine, while now
and then when the clouds would roll up and melt Into
the blue of the sky, we could glimpse a farther-view, and
we said lt was the sea and the mountains beyond the
sea, but the distance made it almost as vague as a half-
forgotten dream.
It Is a journey that one can easily make within thc
day, providing there ls no miscalculation, and lt is a most
joyfully exhilarating climb, while the picture which tht.
summit discloses must alwaya stand out conspicuously
in the gasta* *f one's memories.
IT brings the whole country for miles around within easy reach.
