APPEAL IDE
TO CONSUMERS
Associated Growers Ask
That Products of British Columbia Orchards
Be Given Preference
More Intensive Efforts ~
Needed to Develop the
Country, Says Beatty
Winnipeg, Sept. 10—President
Beatty and his party of directors
and officials of thu C.P. It. arrived
here at 9 p.m. after a daylight trip
from Fort Wi|liam and will remain
here until Tuesday morning.
In the course of an interview this
eveniog President Beatty snd that
misapprehension seemed to have
been created by the erroneous ao
nouncement from uninformed
sources tbat tbe plans of tbe company for branch line construction
were extend d by tbe senate's rejection of tbe Canadian National
branch lines bill. Tbe program for
1923 was passed upon by the com"
pany long before any information
was given out as to the National
railway's intentions and that pro-
nram bad not been departed from in
the slightest degree in consequence
of the senate's action, he said.
The president said tbat he intended at meetings with the members of the various boards ot trade
to emphasise the necessity for more
intensive efforts if the country was
to be developed with even moderate
speed.
"Wbat would seem to be needad,"
he Baid. "is a serious appreciation
of the need of economy, but in tbe
last analysis that only means tbat
we should take sane and sober
stock of tbe situation with a view to
improving it. For the next few
years public and private expendi|
ture in Canada should be made with
great care and almost entirely in
works of a productive character.
We oan afford to do without many
luxuries until the taxpayer is relieved of a portion of his burden.
"I hope," be added, "that the fall
business will be good and a great
deal will depend on whther the
grain crop is marketed quiokly at
fair prices. If the initial movement
is lorge, the transportation companies will, of course, benefit, and
general trade will feel an immediate
effeot."
An appeal for the help of
citizens of Vancouver to support the friiit industry of the
interior by giving preference
to British Columbia grown
fruits has been forwarded to
A. Melville Dollar by the Associated Growers of British
Columbia. Mr. Dollar is on
the directorate ofthe association.
The appeal points out that
the associEtion was brought
into existence through the re
verses and discouragements
experienced by the growers;
points out that its control and
operasion extends throughout
the Okanagan, Boundary and
Kootenays, and that whereas
a year ago some thirty independent or private shippers
served the conntry, now
through the efforts of the
growers, these indepandent
houses are parts of the new
organization.
Cooperative effort is now
being conducted by the growers seeking solutions to the
many and varied problems
confronting tbe industry, it is
stated, with the result that
about 400 members have
pledged -themsalves to dispose
oi their produce through the
Associated Growers of British
Columbia. Apyroximately 85
to 90 per cent of the fruit in
the interior is under contract,
it is stated.
The future ofthe fruit growing industry rests largely
with the consumer in British
Columbia and on the prairies,
the appeal says, and after
pointing out that the growers
on their part are packing fruit
on the highest quality basis
for delivery to the consumer
at the lowest possible price,
urges consumers to show appreciation of lhese efforts by
purchasing only fruit sold
through the Associated Growers of British Columbia, Ltd.

EVAPORATION AT
DIFFERENT PERIODS
In the dry belt of British Columbia, where the conservation of soil
moistujc is of the utmost importance
te successful farming, a study of
evaporation becomes essential. Ab a
beginning io this direction tbe Dos
minion experimental station at Summerland installed a tank, made of
galvanized iron sunk into the ground
six feet square by two feet deep,
irom which, by means of a vernier,
measurements of evaporation from
an open water surface can be made
as near as one-hundredth of an inch.
During the summer of 1922 the
average daily evaporation from tbis
open surf .ce was as follows: April
(8 days), .13 in.; May, 14; June,
.22; July, .22; August ,15-Septem
ber, .12; October, .06. The total
evaporation over tbis period, i.e.,
from April 23 to Ootober 31 was
28.54 inches. The total rainfall
over the same period was 5.12
inches.
Tbe relative atmospheric humidity, taken at 9 o'clock each morning, is also inter-sting. The average
figures for the months are as follows: May, 61 per cent; June, 4 6
per cent; July, 51 per cent; August,
62 per cent; September, 65 per cent;
October, 79 per cent. From these
figures it will be noticed that the
greatest evaporation and the lowest
percentages of relative humidity ocn
our in June aod July. It is scarcely
necessary to point out the close relationship between these two sets of
figures. Atmospheric moisture is the
product of evaporation from the
surface of the earth. A very dry
atmosphere has a strong pull on the
available moisture.
Having thus briefly indicated tbe
conditions which prevail during the
summer mouths, we must now consider what means are at the disposal
of the farmer to enable bim to conserve moisture against these coodi.
tions.
Earth mulches may be considered
the most efficient conservators of
soil moisture, but the advantageous
use of these requires a thorough understanding of tbeir nature. Continuous clean cultivation, year after
year, impoverishes the soil of its
organic matter and nitrogen. Bacterial action is greatly reduced; the
texture of the soil deteriorates, Un
lees one csn apply heavy dressings
of barnyard mannre this practice
can not be continued beyond three
or four years.
A second method is the crop
mulch system and this, under our
conditions, is by far the safer method. Under favorable conditions al
falfa may be regarded as the crop to
grow, but this must be regarded as
a cover crop only,.not as a hay
crop. Under less favorable conditions, where the humus content of
the soil is deficient, or where tbere
is a probability of a water shortage
towards July or August, hairy vetch

united in the opinion that the undertaking was in the best interests
of British Columbia and is bound to
show a handsome profit. Alieady
thousands of American motorists
hive come into British Columbia,
leaving hundreds of thousands of
American dollars on this side. Automobile clubs predict tbat the completion of tbis work will bring huge
tourist profits to even the remotest

No matter what the opinions of
the government and tbe people may
be on tbe general Oriental question,
it is conceded tbat the gnvernment
has but o e thing to do at present
in dealing with tbe Japanese people;
tbat is to rush all possible relief to
tbe stricken nation. Feeling this to

ernment has announced that a cargo

The fourth session of the fifteenth

while no legislation of a contentious
nature is anticipated, it is expected
that ma y matters of provincial importance will be disposed of. Among
these will be the redistribution of

Oliver states tbat a redistribution
bill will be introduced at tbe begin

Victoria.September 12—Great im»
provements have been made in tbe
matter of caring for tubercular patients at Tranquille sanitorium, according to the annual report of tbat
institution just released by Hon. J.
D. MacLean, provincial secretary,
Increased accommodation has been
provided and the institution cin
now care for 243 patients.
The minister points out that there
has been a marked increase in the
number of advanced cases and a corresponding decrease in the number
of incipient cases. This is in opposition to the aim of the government,
be states, and advises that an earlier
diagnosis of the disease be made, so
tbat tuberculosis may be checked
in the earlier stages. The sanitorium
is operating on a highly standardized
basis, entirely under the control of
the provincial government,
Tbe .liquor control board has
never made any attempt to "saturate" British Columbia witb liquor.
On tbe contrary, eveiy effort has"
been made to control tbe sale of
whisky and other drinks, state At

instances tbe board has refused to
open liquor stores, and wherever
the voters show tbey are opposed to
the opening of a store their wishes
are respected. This statement wes
issued following accusations thst
the government was doing its best
to sell more and more of the strong
stuff.
'•The board is simply cairying out

With the exception of Mayor
Hull, all the members were present

A FARMER'S
ACCOUNT BOOK
Despite criticism directed against
the government for the finishing of
the Pacific highway when that project was undertaken, the general
public and prominent business men
from all over the province are   now
Any merchaut handling several
different lines of goods would regard it as fo.ly to neglect to keep a
complete set of books enabling him
at all times to ascertain his profits
aod losses on tbe various commodities he sells, bis assets and liabilities,
-ind so on. A manufacturer who
failed to do so would be heading for
insolvency. It is curious, then, that
Canada's basic industry—agricuU
ture—should be carried on, so far
as individual producers are concerned witb it, in so casual a manner with regard to account keeping.
Especially is this strange when it is
considered how simple farm bookkeeping is by comparison with that
of other businesses.
In a survey of some eight hun
dred farms conducted some time ago
it was discovered that very few
farmers indeed followed anything
like a complete met bod of accounting, while a large number adopted
absolute'y nine at all. These, beyond
having a general sott of idea
as to "wbat paid," were often quite
hazy as to actual returns from dif-
irent lines of work.
In order, if possible, to remedy
this undesirable slate of affairs tbe
Dominion experimental farms system has published an extremely
simple farmer's account book,which
will adequately serve all necessary
purposes. In size and thickness it Is
no larger than a school exercis
book, and is nestined to last a com
plete year. To "keep" it needs no
knowledge of ordinary accounting;
simply the ability to write and add;
and a record of all transactions
might be made in an hour a week.
A few plain directions as to making
entries, some aids to taking inventories, a table of silo capacities and
a gestation table, are given oo the
inside of the cover, while on the
back are printed calendars for last,
this and next year.
In the book are pages for entry of
receipts and expenditures (botb of

and supplies, mid of machinery.
Following is a page on whicb may
be tilled out a summary of the year's

intelligently at the end of the year.
Further, for tbe farmer's inforn a-
tion tbere is a table in wbicb to inter acreage and yield of crops, i,nd
oue in which to keep a live stook

Tbe whole thing has been reduced
to tbe simplest possible terms, and
should prove, to tbe general farmer,
one of the most useful publications
issued from the experimental fauns
for some time. It should be recognized hat farming is a business, the
same as any other.' If a business* is
not paying, tbe owner of it wants to
know wby it is not doing so. This
little book will enable the fnrmer to
keep an accurate record of each department of his business, find out
how much be is making from euch,
or how little, and so be able to adjust matters accordingly.

back alley. But it does not take a superman
long to become an expert. That's why he is
called a superman. Other trades and professions, we suppose, are also blessed with an
ample supply of experts, and we know (from
reading advertisements) that the general public has not been overlooked, because there are,
according to the ads., correspondence schools
that can, in a few lessons, fit the biggest dunce
in the world for a $50,000-ayear salary. If
these experts and supermen are not all fakirs,
confidence men or get-rich-quick grafters, the
legislature should, at its coming session, enact a law making it a capital crime for any
person to be poor.
Notes, Notions and Notables
A great many people, especially insti^an t
cities and towns, make as much fuss over the
tourist as if they were cannibals and expected
to have the wanderer served at a banquet.
The tourist is all right; and as long as he keeps
within the law he is entitled due consideration, courtesy and fair treatment. But after all,
the revenue derived from the motor car tourist
traffic is pretty evenly balanced. The equivalent of what a community gains from tourists
passing through its midst is usually spent by
its own citizens touring in other parts of the
country. Tbe town that goes to sleep expecting to make a permanent living off the tousist
trado will wake up in the near future to find
that it has been dreaming.
Germany's floating debt on August 31 was
more than one quadrillion marks. In round
figures it was 1,235,067,000,000,000. It looks
big; but the creditors Would probably be willing to accept a couple of Canadian dollars and
call it square.

E. W. Beatty, president of the Canadian
Pacific railway, seems to have a very good
conception of what is required to develop Canada. The trouble with the development of the
couutry to its fullest extent in the past has
been that an attempt "las been made to de -
uelop it by passing resolutions instead of by
doing actual work. Whenever a community
has been in need of an improvement the board
of trade, or some other civic organization, has
been called together aud resolutions passed
asking the government or some corporation
to do it; and all the time the weeds were growing in the gardens or on the farms of the
public-spirited citizens who attended the
meeting. Resolutions in their proper places
are respectable entities of society; but when
multiplied too often they become bores and
no one pays any attention to them. A good
dose of Mr. Beatty's remedy would do Canada good.   It would do Grand Forks good.

Country fairs are still being held in this
province where a spud was never known to be

they are held. The principal object in holding them seems to be get the government

The -L party of British Columbia has made
many statements abeut the Oliver government spending the paople's money recklessly.
Of course the government is spending money
—but not recklessly. It takes money to properly carry on the business of the province.
What most people grumble at is, that the
government is not spending enough money.
They imagi e that the Canadian dollar can be
printed as easily as the Gernjan mark. They
do not realize that it has to be raised by taxation. There are delegations from all parts of
the province in Victoria every day in the week
asking for grants and urging the government
to spend money in order to improve times in
communities where the people are unwilling to
help themselves. All have plausible stories to
tell. So much for the government spending
money. Hut what would the £ party do if it

An interesting modern departure in education is the plan to convert an army transport
into a floating preparatory school for college
and send it round the world, The school will
be in session nine months in the year; will be
as strict in its requirements as the best fitting
schools and carry a staff of competent teachers
Thc cost will be no greater than at a fitting

it is impossible to get workmen who can do
the sort of work by which the firm made its
reputation, and that, even if the men could be
found, there is no longer any real appreciation
of really fine printing or demand for it.

Near the white walls the lady of the house draws
water from the old-fashioned well, and bakes her bread
in an old brick oven, the like of which was used by her
ancestors in France four centuries ago. She spins her
own wool and shares with her husband a faith, which
though not old-fashioned, is almost as old as the Christian
era. A kindly hospitable soul is she, nor is she always
backward In learning, for she probably attended the
convent of the Ursulines at Quebec, or la petite tScole at
Loulseville. And her husband—He may be content
to wear the homespun, to sit around the fire, or on the
threshold at night, to smoke his "Rouge Quesnel" and to
drive five miles to church early on all holidays in his
buggy or in the straw lined cart that is used about the
farm, but he "knows his letters" and, better still, he
knows how to farm.
The Quebec Farm is usually up-to-date. Yoar
"habitant gets all that can be got from the soil, and if
«m lit witb him and talk you will see that he gets the
fullness of life too. Give him the simple pleasures. He is
happy if he can re-tell the story of the big moose he shot
by "Lac Saint Pierre" and the bear. He is some trapper
too, "for sure I catch him lots of skin, me!"
The "old man," the "old woman" and that large, very
large family, are content as seldom people are, and rightly
so, for theirs is a rich heritage, and beautiful. The mighty
St. Lawrence and its thousand tributaries, the glorious
Laurentians, with their wooded slopes, the forests, lakes
and myriad streams give them a country almost unexcelled for beauty. Game and fish abound as has been
discovered by sportsmen from outside. Moose, trout,
maskinonge, the big black bass, bear, deer and caribou.
From a historians point of view Quebec is the hunting
ground of the continent. Quebec city is one huge
souvenir of the early days of Canadian settlement. Lost
and re-captured several times her old Walls still bear the
marks of storm, and the old cannons still guard the city
and the approaches to the citadel.
The history of Quebec is the history of Canada, priest,
soldier and pioneer settler each having played a glorious
fiart in the making of it. With the fair Dominion as a
asting memorial to their valor and courage. Quebec links
them with the present day; their faith, piety, and the
work they commenced are being preserved and carried
on by the present generation. The relics of their day
scattered here and there, and on almost every street, look
down or out upon the most modern improvements of
the age. the railways, and the huge" Canadian Pacifie
and other steamships at the docks, but lose not their
identity, and in the case of buildings and public places,
their charm and interest.
All through Quebec province, and in the most unexpected places one comes across historic links with the
past Like her people Quebec is quiet, peaceful, and does
not crave the limelight, but Quebec Is not and cannot
be overlooked. It is an old world, full of charm, within
tha new.
An Efficient Librarian
A school teacher in a Mostern town,
wishing to learn more about the
stories of Edgar Allan Poe, enquired
at the delivery desk of the rural
library for the Qold Bug and added:
"I can't seem to find it in the cata
logue, but lam sure yen have it. A
friend of mine had it out last week.''
The librarian, who was new and
very young, glanced at the drawer of
the card catalogue over which the
teacher had been poring and then
smiled:
"No wonder, Miss Smith," she ex.
plained with patient gentleness. "You
were looking under 'fiction.' I think
that if you will turn to 'entomology'
you won't have any trouble."

There was an increase of sixty-

for steel by the winter freeze-up.

Dr. James Inches, Commissioner
of Police, Detroit, and a guest at tha

biggest speckled trout caught in tha
Nipigon River this season, having
captured a fish weighing 7% pounds.
This catch was above the average,

when one of the latest type of Canadian Pacific locomotives drew a train
of 42 cars of newsprint, weighing
more thnn 1.100 tons, from the plant
of the Abitibi Pulp and Paper Company, North Bay. to Toronto, without mishap. Ordinarily, it would
have taken two passenger engines
to haul such a load for the 320
miles. After proving its worth by
this feat the huge engine, together
with an all steel train consisting of

Mining With a Feather
Placer mining in Mongolia is a
primitive process compared even with
the American pioneer method of wash
ing out gold in a pan. The Mongol—
so Dr. Ferdinand Ossendowaki tells
us iu his book Beasts, Men and Gods
—lies flat on the ground, brushes the
sand aside with a feather and keeps
blowing into the little excavation so
formed. From time to time he wets
his finger and,picking upon it a small
bit of grain gold or a diminutive nug -
get, drops it into a little bag hanging
under his chin. In that way he collects adout a quarter of an ounce, or
five dollars' worth of gold a day.

The Objects of t'lU Institution, for which Incorporation was recently obtained, are: "To provide a Home and ttafuge for Baby and Infant Blind; to
provide free Suiontiic Ciro, Training and Maintenance; to Save the Lives of
even a few of the mtny of sujli unfortunates, who, for the lack of such service, parish overy yeir; and to return these little ones to iheir parents, at
sohool age with uui-ia.il, healthy bodies and sound minds."
This is a large and greatly needed Child Welfare Service. Careful enquiry
at the Government offices in tbe venous 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 Arthur Pearson organized "Sunshine House," Cborley Wood, for Blind Babies,
and he claims that it is the only one in 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 Boaad. While the
Home is to be locited in Ottawa it will take in the Baby Blind from every
province, so that this APPEAL for funds will'be Dominion wide, and an
early and generous response is confidently expected. Cheques should be made
payable to the Canadian Blind Babies Home Association. All remittances
will be promptly acknowledged.
