sulers, Okanagan fruit shippers and
growers are in session bere, discussing problems affecting this season's
apple crop. This is the first time
such a meeting has been beld where
open and frank discussion on tbe
apple deal has been held prior to
the movement of the crop.
Values, transportation, handling
and merchandising problems are
being gone into and threshed out
with considerable satisfaction to all
Judging from tbe different speakers, it is believed that apple prices
will be less than the opening quotations a year ago and tbat consumers
will be able to buy tbe seasonable
varieties at a price which will
greatly increase tbe consumption.
In reviewing conditions bearing
ou tbe marketing of tbis season's
crop, II. M. Winslow, manaSer of
the fi. C. Traffic and Credit association, said that the American apple
estimate showed a big increase over
a year ago. Nova Scotia Graven
steins would be heavy, wbile tbe
Canadian apple yield would be
about equal to a year ago. With the
continent harvesting a much greater
crop, more serious competition faces
tbe seller, while at present tbe unsettled state of tbe fruit business in
the United Slates, owing tj the rail
and coal strikes, all had au adverse
affect. Shippers were hoping for a
reduced rate from the Pacific coast
to tbe United Kingdom, wbicb
would belp greatly in moving the
box apples from uortbwesteru orchards.

Cranbrook, Aug, 12.—East Kootenay is going to have n large pulp
and paper mill, lt is said the project is largely promoted by the
Chicago Tribune and other papers.
They will take lbe greater bulk of
tbe newsprint.
The company, known as the Wigwam Pulp & Paper Company Ltd.,
will locate at Phillips Bridge, nine
miles south of Elko. It will take
twoye.irs to complete tbe plant,
wbich eventually will cost $10,000,-
000 aud employ about 1500  hands,
It is said that the industry will be
on u arger scale thn the Powell
River or Ocean Falls project*.
C. D. McNab, of Waldo, B, C,
president of the Baker Lumber cuiu»
pany, bas secured the contract for
supplying tbe company witb pulpwood. He has incorporated a company for thc carrying out of his part
of tbe coutract,which will be known
as tbe McNab Logging Coinpany
Chicago interests have thoroughly investigated t're pnlpwood of the
Wigwam valley .ind pronounced it
of an excellent nature for the manufacture of newsprint, tbe fiber being
longer than found elsewhere in British Columbia, permitting the manufacture of a high grade product.
The timber is ideally situated aud
free from fire hazard. There is said
to be sufficient timber available in
the Wigwam valley alone to last for
thirty years.
"If I were a youngster about to
start out for myself," mused the old

Cranbrook, Aug. 16.—The
government met with an unexpected defeat in thc by-
election here yesterday, when
N. A. Wallinger, Conservative candidate, was chosen
to represent the riding in the
provincial legislature. With
four remote polls to hear
from—and these can not possibly materially affect the result—Wallinger's majority
over John Taylor,the Liberal
candidate, i.s 225. He polled
1006 votes to Taylor's 781.
Up to tbe last week of the campaign it had been supposed tbat tbe
Conservative candidate had hardly
a chance of winniug. The seot was
rendered vacant by the promotion
of Hon. Dr. King to a position in
the federal cabinet, and the minister
of public works has n strong following in the district, in w.'ich be formerly lived. That they were able to
sc ire a victory under rather untoward circumstances is a source of
added jubilation among the adherents of the opposition who supported the winning candidate.
Mr. Wallinger's friends   here  declared   today   that   the   campaign
eould not have taken a mor1 favorable turn for them   than   when   the
personal   record   of   the man  was
rougbtinto the fight, together with
the   reasons   surrounding  his dismissal from his position as govern
ment agent. It will be recalled that
on the day Premier   Oliver a.rived
to open the campaign tbis feature of
the   battle  was  brought   into   the
limelight.    Nearly all the  members
of   tbe   cabinet  were here to speak
and   at   the  end  of last week they
were reported to be none   too   sanguine of   the   result, in view of the
personal turn wbich  the   campaign
had taken.  By that time  the   subject of Mr. Wallinger's   ubrupt  dismissal, after eighteen years  in  the
government service, was practically
the sole issue in the campaign.
Tbe member elect was given an
ovation oo the streets last night and
VV. J. Rowser, leader of the opposition, wbo had been in charge of the
campaign, wns also given aline reception by the voters whose choice
had been sustained.
Victoria, Aug. IU. —Nearly all
the cabinet being absent at the
Cranbrook contest, it was impossible to obtain any definite statement
today whether the by-election in
Vancouver will be held before tbe
ciimiug autumn session of tbe legislature. The matter will doubtless be
considersd by the cabinet next
week, with tne chances ratber iu
f 'vor of postponing the contest until a more opportune occasion.
Mucb surprise was felt here when
word came through on Monday tbat
there was a good chance of the opposition winning in Cranbrook.
Earlier reports had suggested that
the government candidate was practically safe, but tbe personal turn
which the campaign took is blamed
by friends of the government forthe
fact that the earlier prophesies were
knocked into a cocked hat.
While returning to this
city from Greenwood Tuesday evening Sheriff T. A.
Taggart and two companions,
H. H. Sawyer, of Carmi, and
a Mr. Wilson, a recent arrival
in the city, met with an accident that completely wrecked
the car and more or less injured two ofthe occupants.
A short distance on the
other side of Spencer, where
the embankment is between
two and three hundred feet
high, the party met a team,
and Mr. Taggart, who was
driving the car, got one wheel
over the bank, and the entire
car was pulled over. Mr.
Taggart headed the car
straight down the 75 percent
grade and set the brakes, but
althongh the two hind wheels
were dragging it is estimated
that a speed of over .sixty
miles per hour was attained.
When the car had rushed
down the embankment about
one hundred fifty feet it struck
a tree and the men were catapulted out of it. The car was
smashed into kindling wood,
and the men were stuuned
and bruised by the fall. In
this sondition they were found
by a car headed this way and
they were brought into the
On arrival here it was found
that one of Mr. Taggart's
ears had been so badly cut
that it required nine stitches
to sew it together. Mr, Sawyer received a severe shaking-
up and went to the hospital
Wednesday evening, while
Mr. Wilson escaped practically uninjured.

The vacation is the best device for enabling
a man to restore his individuality. Without it
modem industrial organization would be impossible. Man could not endure the confining,
inactive life of the shop for physical  reasons,
nor could he endure the  psyclrc robbery of
the large business enterprises. It is a psychic
relief from a too complicated existence to turn
to the woods.   Damp life puts drama into the
necessities of existence.  It makes breakfast a
gamble and the achievement of dining a masterpiece   of ingenuity, patience and physical
prowess. Man must be constantly achieving;
he must be eternally pitting his ability against
the   world and conquering it.    Now, what is
thereto mike a man proud of himself as he
eats bacon and eggs at home in the morning?
He did not find those eggs, nor cook them; he
will be lucky if he can pay for them, Contrast
this with the exultation of providing his  owj
breakfast in  camp—of outwitting  the cagy
trout in his pool, of leaping up the path shouting to his slothful campmates, of cooking the
beauties aud them hearing the sweet words of
praise which, if tliey be decent human beings,
his feilows cannot fail to shower upon him.
The attention of the holders of the five and
a half per cent war loan bonds maturing December 1, 1922, is directed to the offer of the
Minister of Finance to renew the loan on favorable terms. The last Canadian loan was
placed in New Rork at a satisfactory price.
The Minister is making his present financial
operation entirely a domestic one by offering
to exchange the maturing bonds for new
bonds bearing the same rate of interest, running for either five years or ten years as the
holder may prefer. A further inducement to
the investor is that he receives a bonus of one
month's interest. The terms offered are decidedly favorable to the investor and it is
probable that a large part of the maturing
loan will be renewed. Arrangement for the
exchange of the bonds can be made at any
branch of the chartered banks. Holders who
do not wish to reinvest will be paid in cash
on the 1st of December..

There is always more or less discussion as
to the younger generation. As far as our experience goes, and it covers now not a fow
years, tho younger generation is always changing. It is changing now. Some of these
changes we would rather not have. Others
we are very glad to see. There is no reason
for believing, on the whole,  that  the  condi
tions are   materially  worse than  they have
been for a long time. No doubt the war un
settled society at large. Iu  this unsettlement
perhaps  our younger people share to some
extent. Uut mind you, it is only a sharing  of
what   goes with  the  entire community.   In
short, wc do not believe that society.especially
the younger part of it, is undergoing a radical
revolution oither ln morals or manners.   It is
passing through a condition of change   certainly in manners, perhaps to some extent in
morals, but we do not  believe that there is
any serious danger.    We need to do what we
have always needed to do—to  use the best
efforts for wise direction   and  proper   education. May we add thai; these efforts  belong
id thc home even more than to the schools?
Where the forestuclad slopes of the mountains grand,
Like waves of an emerald sea,
Frame pictures of beauty unpainted by hand,
Which Nature invites you to see;
Where the homeless and weary may rest from their  care,
And enjoy themselves "easy and free,"
Where the good and the bad join together in prayer,
'Round the shores of Christina Bee Sea1
Where the boys and their sweethearts may dance the night
'Neath the bright starry dome of the sky,
Or paddle their way in a bireh-bark canoe
To a seat where they moon gaze aud sigh ;
Where the soft, dreamy music floats out on the air
In a love soug of ecstacy,
Enjoyment is there for him who woutd dare
To camp by Christina Bee Sea.
There are swimmers and bathers and divers galore,
As busy as wild honey bees—
A picture that's restful for eyes ftiat are sore,
For they seem to dress just as they please.
They pose semi-nudely or scamper quite rudely
To let each gaping rubberneck see
That it might cost some money if a guy should get funny
'Round pretty Christina Bee Sea.
There is fishing and boating and ' 'eats" that are fine,
And a "thirst" is a thing of the past;
There are "Limousine" porties that are hard to define,
Where the pace is both torrid and fast.
You must banish your sorrow, nor think of the morrow-
Just screw up your nerve to high G,
And start blowing bubbles to drown your troubles
In the joy of Christina Bee Sea.

A Harsh Critic
Tho gentleman dining at the table
nearest to tho orchestra got up from
his chair and approached the orchestra
"Do you ever play by request?" ho
"Certainly, sir." replied the delighted musician.
"Then," said the diner, "1 wonder
if you and your men would be so good
us to play a game of dominoes until
I've finished my Iunoil?"
Historic Lies
Two of the most famous lies rolatu
Lo the last hours of Nelson. Everyone knows tliat Lhe real signal at Trafalgar which ho ordered was, "Nelson
expocts every man to do his dnty."
The other lie is about the coat ho
wore on his quarter deck. He is reported to have silenced the impor
tunity of his officers, entreating hiin
to conceal the stars on his breast, by
saying, "In honor I gained thorn,
und in honor I will die   with them."
This is great stylo, but it is untrue.
Dr. Arnold hoard the facts from Sir
Thomas Hardy Nelson woro on the
day of battle the same coat he had
worn for weeks,liaving the Order of the
Bath embroidered upon it, and whon
his friends expressed somo appreheii"
sion of the badge, he answered that
he was aware of the danger, buL that
■t was "too late then to shift his coat."
The fabricated saying is  magnificent;
why destroy it?
A Lazy Switchman's Invention
Few things are wholly bad. Laziness is not an admirable trait in any
man, but for all that it appears to
have been responsible for at least one
useful and important invention. In
1846, says Herbert Horwill in Discovery, a railway switchman who had
to attend to two station signals some
distauoo apart docided to save himself
the troublo of walking to and fro between them by fastening the two
lovors together with a long piece of
wire. lie used a broken chair as a
counterweight and run the wire on
into his hut. Eaoh night after thut
ho sat by his fireside and worked Lhe
two signals without setting foet nul
I'rcsanlly lhe railway authorities
found out what he had done, reprimanded him for his indolence, promoted und rewarded him for his in-
geuuily and then adopted his invention .
