With tbe short fruit crop in British Columbia this year, maoy grow
ers in this section fail see wby the
advisory committee of the Associ
ated Growers should have saddled
more expense upon the members by
sending a man to England merely
for tbe put pose of observing things.
Tbe fruit growers are far enougb behind tbe game uow to make it desirable that they should receive
some returns for this year's limited
crop; but if the Associated intends
to disburse the receipts for salaries
and in fighting law suits the prospects in this direction are very small
We are speaking for tbe good
of the organization, because
every cent of expense added to tbe
cost of operating tbe Associated
helps to keep members away, and to
make others secede from it. No
doubt tbe man appointed to tbe
old country position needs tbe
salary, but no more so tban the
growers themselves.

Honey is a perishable article no
matter whether it is left iu the comb
or extracted. Witb care it csn be
be kept in good condition for long
periods, especially in the eztrrcted
form, Neotar, as gathered by the
bees, contains a high percentage of
water, which must be evaporated before the honey oan be extracted.
When the cells are filled and tbe
right amount of evaporation has taken
place, the honey is sealed over and is
then considered to be "ripe." It is
not advisable to extract honey until
at least three fourths of the cells are
capped, especially in regions where
rhe honey is inclined to be rather
thin. Comb honey-should be left on
tbe hives until all celis containing
honey are sealed, but should not be
left on any longer, as the sections are
likely to become travel stained.
The honey should be extracted as
soon as possible after the supers are
removed from the hives, and if done
while still warm, more honey will be
taken from the combs. After the
honey is extracted it mutt be strained
to remove all foreign matter. Straining may be done through fine cheese
cloth or by letting the honey stand in
tanks for two or three days, when all
foreign matter will have risen to the
surface. If tbe honey is well ripened,
it should be placed in th3 final con
tainers at onco, before it starts to
granulate, but if it is too thin it
should be left in the tahks a short
time for further ripening Honey
should be stored in a dry place, as it
readily absorbs moisture from a damp
atmosphere Honey ripening in tanks
should stand in a warm, dry room.
Ripened honey iu containers ready for
market wil' keep better in a cold dry
place Seotion honey should bo stored
in a well ventilated room where the
temperature is high and constant or
moisture will condense un the cap-
pings and be absorbed.

Shipments, foreign and domestic,
during the first six months of 1924
averaged 232,000,000 pounds of new
copper a month. Production of tbe
world not coming to this country for
treatment and refining is at present at
the rate of about 43,000,000 ponnds
a month. Thi; copper is beihg sold as
fast as produced as bas also been true
American production. Moreover,
shipments are going into consumption
practically as fast as received, for
world stocks of copper have decreased
steadily during the last six months
and more. This indicates a world
consumption during the last six
months of 275,000,000 pounds of
new copper a month, or at the rate of
approximately 3,300,000,000 pounds
a year.

Price of eopper, however, during

The r vised crop estimate fjf fruit
in tbe Okanagan district shows that
in comparison witb the previous
estimate of July 12, there is little
cbange in tbe total crop percentages.
In apples about 5 per cent, oj
52,500 boxes, decrease is shown,due
principally to tbe lack of water in
tbe Armstrong, Vernon and Pen
ticton districts affecting the size.
In peare the percentage is raised
slightly, due to an estimated in*
ciease at Summerland and Nara
mata sections. Plums and prunes
bave decreased 10 per cent from tbe
previous estimate of June 21. This
decrease is principally due to tbe
heavy drop in many orcbords of
prunes affected by gumming and
drought injury.
The crop generally ie very clean,
of good quility and fair size, but is
maturing ear ier than usual. The
ripening tbis -:aason, in nearly every
instance, is fr..m two to tbree weeks
earlier thao normal, and growers
and shippers are advised to plan accordingly.
Early Apples
When apples as good io qualily
aa tbe Mcintosh, Fameuse and
Northern Spy and as attractive in
appearance can be obtained on the
general markets in Canada there
sbould be a grsat increasee in their
consumption. Tbe people are keen
for apples when the season opens in
late July or early August, but the
sour varities then offered for sale,
such as Yellow Transparent, Red
Astrachan, Crimson Beauty and
Duchess, do not agreeably satisfy
the palate nor tend to increase the
demand for apples as a table fruit.
Tbere ie no good reason why we
should not have early apples of as
good quality as the later Spy aud
Mcintosh. The old Early Harvest
apple was better in quality than any
of the mentioned early kinds, but it
is not very hardy, scabs badly, and
is little planted. But new varieties
are being bred for the early market,
and it is believed tbat in a few yeurs
such fine sorts as tbe Melba, a seedling of the Mclnto-h, originated in
tbe horticultural division, experimental farm, Ottawa, of fine color
and high dessert qvality, ripening
before Duchess, and the Early M<>
Iutosb, originated at the New York
experimental station, Geneva, N.Y.,
and others will become very popular and in great demand. Trees ot
Melba will be available from nur.

markablc superstition; according to which, if
a cigarette holder is made from "lhe tooth of a
man-eating tiger, the form ofthe tiger's victim
will appear in the smoke wreaths from the
cigarette. In the eyes of the natives, almost
every part of the tiger takes on wonderful
properties after he is dead. The nerves of the
tiger, beaten toa pulp anrl mixed with alco-
hol, make a brew which is considered to be an
elixir of life. He who eats tiger's liver or

The Indians who were so skilful  in  distinguishing the tracks  of animals were  equally
clever in recognizing the footprints of their
foes.   Each  tribe of Indians had a different
method of miking m)C3isin3.    The Arapahos
and Oheyeanes used a shos moccasin—that is,
one  that  reached   no higher than the instep
and lacked the upper side-Haps which moccasins usually had.    The Chippewa moccasins
differed from fhose of Prairie make, in having
a seam  running  up the center of the foot to
the leg and the  sides   gathered   into   plaits.
This was the true fashion of the forest Indian.
I'o rhe tra;ned eye, friend or foe  was  known
by his shoeprint.   A traveler  from England,
wearing a pair of moccasins of tin forest pattern, while touring in the west, attracted the
attention   of   the   Arapahos.    One old chief
who had been a great wanderer over the con
tinent in his youth, explained to the members
cf his party that the people who made moe
casins of that kind lived far, far away to the
north. It was a land, he said, where the snow
lay deep on the ground, where the distant sun
shone coldly and the mystery fire (the aurora
borealis) illumined the long night.    The other
Indians merely shrugged their shoalders and
said "Ugh," whether in approval or incredulity
it was impossible to say.

In the standard books of etiquette of our
grandmothers' lays, many pages are devoted
to thc subject of marriage, and many rules of
wifely duty are laid down. "With a wife a
husband's faults should be sacred," is the burden of their song. The directious on all subjects are explicit, "Never dismiss help in
anget" was a sage piece of advice even in the
days when servants were plentiful and wages
low. The prescribed formula for gotting rid of
thp cook was, "If we can not get along pleasantly we must part." "Americanisms,"as they
were called, were highly censured. According
to the rules of etiquette, a lady was told that
she must not say "ain't" or "ax" or "chaw" or
"co.vcumber" or "bizen." The book did not
close without some remarks on the question of
bathing. "Once a week is often enough for a
decent white man to wash himself all over,
and whether in summer or winter, that ought
to be done with soap, warm water and a hog's
hair brush!"

The Telephone Is a
Daylight Saver
Saving daylight is a big topic at this time of the
year. Everyone endeavors to make the most out of
the daylight hours. In these modern times, life each
day is fuller, and each hour must mean far more than
it did yesterkay.
There is no better aid to daylight saving than the
telephone. Nothing can help you more to make each
successive hour of greater value.
Whether you telephone one mile or one hundred
miles it is all the same to the telephone. The telephone
saves you hours. It lengthens your day, giving you
time tor many things.

LONG before the paleface came
to the broad and rolling
prairies, the Red man knew
and appreciated the curative properties of Little Lake Manitou,
which is located near Watrous,
Saskatchewan, on the main line of
the Canadian National Railways.
And the flrst white settlers who
came, in advance of the railways,
to settle on their homesteads in
and around Watrous, soon learned
of this lake with its highly mineralized waters, so that Little Lake
Manitou had its reputation made
when the flrst settlers reached the
Today thousands of residents of
prairie cities find Little Lake Manitou an ideal watering place, and
excursions are run from time to
time over the Canadian National
Railways from Saskatoon and
other cities to provide citizens with
a means of reaching this delightful spot.
The waters of Little Lake Manitou are so highly mineralized that
the Bwimmer finds no difficulty in
floating on their surface and at the
same time their mineral qualities
are health-giving in their action.
With a good sandy beach for the
kiddies to play on, and water
chutes and other enjoyment features erected for their entertainment, Little Lake Manitou has become the ideal picnic spot for the
dwellers in the central region of

The 'Big show' happened while the S.S. Empress of Canada lay at
Hilo H.I. and many of the round-the-world passengers were ashore viewing
the picturesque sight of the Hawaiin volcanic region. Mr. Bushby had left

The tide ol steamship traffic is turning westward again, and the St. Lawrence route is still the favoured one. Beside large numbers of immigrants
and returning Canadians, a great many European tourist3 are now turning
lowardCanada and ther.e form no small percentage of steamship passengerlists.
Perhaps the most distinguished list this season, was carried by the Canadian
Pacific S.S. Empress of France on her last westward voyage. Among those
on board was Lord Beaverbrook, who with several members of his family will
spend some time in this country. He was also accompanied by T. Marson
Till, O.B.E., his secretary. Other prominent British passengers were Right
Hon. Sir Evelyn Cecil, O.B.E..P.C., M.P., and Col. Vaughan Morgan,
O.B.E..M.P., of London. E. W. Bok, the famous Philadelphia publisher of
Peace Prize fame also made the voyage.
Two passengers in whom much interest centered were Prince and
Plincess Serge Obolensky whose recent marriage in Paris was one of the big
social events of the year. The Princess was formerly Miss Astor. The Hon.
Charles A. Dunning, premier of Saskatchewan, was also on the France.
Other prominent passengers included Mr. R. Bosch, the inventor of the
Bosch Magneto, and Mrs. W. H. Taft, who was met at the dock by her
husband, W. H. Taft of the U.S. Supreme Court and ex-President of the
United   States.
E. W. Beatty, President of the Canadian Pacific Railway, returned on
the Empress of France from a short visit to the Company's agencies in
England and Scandinavia. He was much impressed by the great possibilities
of a furtherance of trade between these countries and Canada.
Asked whether he had seen the Canadian papers while abroad, and had
noted the storm of comment and protest that had followed upon the putting
into effect of the Crow's Nest Pass rates, Mr. Beatty replied that he had seen
a good deal of this, and it was nothing more than had been expected by
himself and other railway ollicers.
"At the time the pro*posed restoration of the Crow's Nest rates was
under discussion," he said "it was made abundantly evident by the railroads
thai they could not afford in the face of existing costs of operation for labor,
materials, equipment, etc., to extend the operation of the Crow's Nest rate3
beyond tho limits orginally fixed. It was also fully explained that if restoration was forced upon the railways many inconsistencies would inevitably result, and some parts of the country would be unduly favored in comparison
with   others."
"Ono of the grave difficulties of the day in railway operation in Canada
is that theorists in railroad management are preaching a doctrine that gives
no thought to the cost of operation in relation to the price tlie railroad is
permitted to get for the service it gives as a common carrier. In most other
lines of business, cost to the consumer is based on the cost of production.
I cannot see why it should he different in the selling of freight or passenger
transportation. Somebody has got to pay wages and other operating costs,
and if the shipper is not willing to do so, I do not know who will, unless the
country will pay it as a whole and I imagine that even the strongest supporters of public ownership will agree that we have reached the limit in that
"It is axiomatic, too, that the continuous betterments and improvements to existing railway lines and the provision of capital for extensions
and new constructions generally depends directly upon tha earning power
of the companies, especially in the case of the Canadian Pacificfwhose funds
must be secured i.i the money markets of the world and it would be in every
respect unwise to borrow unless the general earnings of the company were
satisfactory. One of the difficulties facing the railway companies In Canada
is that thero is not a sufficient margin between revenues and outlays to permit
of surpluses for working capital and for the general purposes of the companies.
Until this margin is re-established extensive borrowings are highly undesirable. Nothing is more conducive to satisfactory commercial conditions
than a healthy transportation situation and this can only be accomplished
if a proper relation exists between revenues and disbursements.
"I should like to pcint out," said Mr. Beatty, "that thc Interstate Commerce Commission in the matter of rates and charges on grain and grain
products in the western United States very recently decided that the general
basis of rates then in effect did not appear to be unreasonable and dismissed
the application for reduction. Here it should be remembered that rates on
grain and grain products now in effect in western Canada are not less than
25 per cent, lower than those in the United States. The Inter-state Commerce Commission is comprised of highly qualified economists who approach
the technical and allied questions of railway rates and costs in a thoroughly
scientific manner. On the other hand, the rate situation in Canada which has
been the subject of bo much comment recently has been brought about by the
restoration by act of Parliament of a scale of rates fixed nearly thirty years
ago without regard at all to present day costs of the inevitable disruption of
the relationship which otherwise existed between various commodities and
various producing centres."
Mr. Beatty added that figures had been filed with the Government showing
the approximate decreases in revenue to both the Canadian National and
the Canadian Pacific railways by the adoption of the Crow's Nest rates on
grain. These, he said, reflected a very serious loss of earning powers to the
roads which would be made still more serious by the recent restoration of tha
•ates on the balance of the commodities enumerated in that act.
