the center of Qrand Forks valley, the
premier fruit growing district of
Southern British Columbia. Mining
and lumbering are also important
industries in districts contiguous to
the city.
Kettle Valley Orchardist
is the favorite newspaper of the citizens
of the district. It is read by more
people in the city and valley than any
other paper because it is fearless, reliable, clean, bright ami entertaining.

Mr. Pratt coucluded his address
by paying a tribute oi praise to tbe
other officers of the association, including tbe directors.
The public meeting in the
Empress theater last Mon
day evening, called for the
purpose of giving the fruit
growers of the valley an opportunity to meet A. M. Pratt,
general monager of the Associated Growers of British Columbia. Limited, was largely
H. E. Woodland acted as
chairman. Mayor Hull,after
expressing appreciation on
behalf of the citizens of Grand

it was his firm belief that

President Howe, of the
Associated Growers, who accompanied Mr. Pratt on his
trip, made an optimistic address.
Mr. Coleman explained the
pooling arrangement entered
into at the Vernon meeting
last week.
A. M. Pratt prefaced his ad
dress by saying that he
wished he was as big a man
as the previous had said he
was, but God willing he intended to be.
The fruit growers of the
province, said Mr. Pratt, had
banded themselves together
for one big purpose, and the
Assciated Growers of British
Columbia was a dead and
earnest organization. To
make it a success, every employee must realize this fact;
to attain this end, he was
pledging all the ability and
energy he possessed—and that
was all any man could do.
Modern trade aod commerce, said
the speaker, is based on selfishness
—cooperation is far-sighted selfishness The Associated Growers of
British Co'umbia was a growers1
movement, and he appealed to tbe
growers of tbis val'ey to get together
aod join tbe organization 100 per
cent strong.
Mr. Pratt recounied some experiences of the California orange growers when tbe cooperative movement
was started in that state. Wben tbe
state shipped 6000 oars tbe growers
had complained of overproduction.
This year 60,000 oars had been
shipped, and tbere was no talk of
overproduction. British Colombia
with 5000 cars of apples did not
need to worry about overproduction.

Pools of the Associated
Growers of British Columbia
will be according to variety
and special requirements of
each fruit. This was the de
cision reached at the conference of packing house managers held in Vernon last week,
when plans for the season
were discussed. There was
considerable discussion on
this question. The old O.U.
G. grading regulations were
practically adopted with some
minor amendments.
The only district that will
have a separate pool will be
Creston, OMing to the difference in freight rates which
that district enjoys and to the
fact that a large quantity of
fruit from there is sold along
the Crow's Nest.
It was also decided to stop
so far as it was possible the
shipping of poor varieties of
cherries, except to the canneries or at special request of
the central. The same will
apply to Transcendent and
Hyslop crabapples, the other
varieties being considered in
the same class as some cherries.
It was also stated that the
central will furnish the local
managers with a statement of
sales at the end of each
In discussing the conference, Mr. Slater, manager of
the Vernon Fruit Union, who
was the only manager present
who had been with the O.U.
G. in some capacity from its
inception, stated that the
rules and regulations were
satisfactory to all the districts
and were recommendations to
the directors, and he expected
that they would be adopted.

Notes, Notions and Notables
Because The .Sun did not take kindly to the
first cooperative scheme proposed—composed
of growers and shippors—and had the independence to critize it, two or three persons of
narrow-gauge intellects in the community are
now apparantly ondeavoring to pervert our
attitude towards the Associated Growers of
British Columbia, Limited, an organization
which we have warmly supported from its inception and will continue to do as long as it is
operated in the interest of the growers.   Our
action in criticising the first proposition seems
to have been justified, because it  was subsequently condemned by two of the greatest cooperative authorities on the continent.   The
motive of these men in their attempt to put
the paper in a false light we are not altogether
ignorant of. Inductive reasoning supplies the
answer. However, theirinfluence with the public is not strong enough to cause us any uneasiness. Falsehood usually acts as a boomerang.   As for the Associated Growers, the
organization can count on our loyal support
until it has been given a thorough  trial and
it is found wanting.
Such assistance as one's friends may give is
seldom satisfactory. The best way is not to
require it.
Lip-boosting, or to be continuBlly telling
the other man to boost, is the cheapest variety
of boosting in this world. It is worthless.
The real booster of a community, even though
he never mentions the word "boost," is the
man who improves his premises by painting
his residence or beautifies his lawn or makes
tny other improvement that adds value and
attractiveness to his property. This man -s
not only a good booster; he is also a good
publicity agent, because the stranger coming
co the city will spread tbe result of his work
to distaut points.
In large auditoriums the speaker of the
future will have to depend little on sheer lung
power. An amplifier such as was recently
placed in Trinity church, New York, makes
the speaker's voice plainly audible in every
part of the building, even though he^speaks io
a low tone. The amplifier will enable a speaker
to give more of his attention to emphasis and
It is better to be disappointed in love than
to be disappointed in alimony.
That there is a world of poetry and romance
in thc folklore of the North American Indians
was clearly proved by Mrs. Emily Teeple,who
spoke on Indian Mythology to the Theosophi-
cal society in Vancouver recently. Iudian versions of thejegends of creation, the deluge
and of the migrations of the soul were told by
the lecturer, as well as well as many stories
which correspond to the "fables" of European
literature. All tbese stories, myths and fables
have an*ethical meaning and are intended to
inspire courage, endurance and right dealing.
In the Indian mythology man was made from
red clay, hence the'color of the Indian—and
as the color is like that of copper and gold,
the Indian is held superior to the paleface.
Some of the legends are ready-made poems,
while some of the ritual reeited at certain
ceremonies has a measured cadence which is
remarkably musical.

Improvement of camping facilities
at Banff for automobile tourists is
now being made. The Mount Run-
die camp site is being improved and
enlarged, and will be equipped with
all modern appliances. It is expected that as a result of the opening of the Banff-Windermere road
this year, the tourist traffic through
Banff will be ths heaviest ever recorded.
At the annual meeting ef tha
Canadian Pacific Railway, President E. W. Beatty pointed out that
prospects for the immigration into
Canada of the class of colonist urgently needed to develop the country's natural resources were much
brighter than they had been in the
past two or three years, and an increased traffic from Great Britain
and Northern Europe was indicated
by the largely increased western
movement on the company'}- ships
during the p»«t four munths ef this

Making Canada Europe's best
and quickest road to the Orient
means much to this country and the
Canadian Pacific Railway, in rearranging its route from England or
France to Japan so as to reduce the
journey by four days, has made ths
route more than ever a serious asm-
petition of travel via the .Suez Canal.

A silver tag attached to tha
dorsal fin of a salmon before its release after the eggs have been removed at the Dominion Government
hatcheries is one of the methods
resorted to by the Fisheries Department for tracing the life history of
the fish. A reward of $1 is paid by
the Department for the return of
silver tags that are being attached
to Atlantic salmon, together with
scales from the side of the fish, and
particulars regarding their lenc-th,
weight and place of capture.
With a view to developing tourist
resorts along its line in Central and
Western Ontario, the Canadian Pacific Railway will erect Bungalow
Camps after the style of those successfully operated in the Rockies.
The first three will be built in ths
Nipigon, French River and Lake of
the Woods districts, and should be
ready for occupation by July 1st.
The low cost of construction and
maintenance will make it possible
to charge much lower rates than
the standard hotel, and the camps
will prove a boon to those of moderate means who desire to spend a
work or mora or leas to tin on**

The Objects of this Institution, for which Incorporation was recently ob
tained, are: "To provide a 3ome 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 such unfortunates, who, for the lack of suoh service, perish every year; and to return these little ones to their parents, at
sohool age witb normal, healthy bodies and sound minds."      •
This is a large and greatly needed Child Welfare Service. Careful enquiry
at the Government offices in the various provinces reveals the fact that there
are at the present time nearly 250 Infant Blind in the Dominion. Nothing
has yet been done for those helpless little ones. In the United States, 113
years ago, the first 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 organised "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 Boaid. While the
Home is to be located in Ottawa it will take in the Baby Blind from every
province, so that tbis APPBAL 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.
