GENERAL MANAGER
PRATT RESIGNS
Ill-Health Compels Him
to Sever His Connection
With Associated Growers of British Columbia
Vernon, Aug 13 — Il is witb deep
regret tbat we announce lhe resignation, in consequence of illness, of A.
M. Pratt as general manager of the
Associated Growers of British Columbia, Limited.
Although Mr. Pratt has been iu
fai ing health for some weeks past,
he courageously endeavoied to con*
tinue the heavy work and responsibilities of his position, although advised of the danger to himself such
a course would ental.
On Saturday, the 11th inst , his
medical adviser, Dr. Baldwin of
Vernon, in a letter to tbe executive
advised tbem that, as Mr Pratt's
medi al consultant, in his opinion
an attempt to continue in hia press*
ent occupation would lead to a total
incapacity; and in fact the stage of
complete collapse has been reached.
The services rendered by Mr.
Pratt have been particularly valuable, especially in the direction of coordinating tbe work of the Central,
or sales staff of the association; in
fact, this part of tbe organization
hae been so well planned and advanced tbat even tbe loss of Mr.
Pratt at this critical time in tbe
se son's operations will not, we are
convinced, se.iously interfere with
the successful continuance of our
business.
It has been decided for tbe present to appoint Basil Sleuart, now
second vices-president of the association, as managing director. Mr.
Steuort's experience as a grower and
a shipper.and his known aud proved
ability) and also the fact that be has
been closely associated with Mr.
Pratt from the time tbe latter - arrived in Vernon, enables us tp make
this announcement with tbe utmost
degree of confidence and satisfaction.
The success of the association
must ultimately depend on a continuance of the loyal support of
every individual grower. This, we
are convinced, will be given and,
therefore, success is assured.—A, T:
Howe, President Associated Growers
oj British Columbia, Limited.
Veruon, August 11 —To the Executive of tbe Associated Growers
of British Columbia, Limited:
For tbe last few weeka it bas been
bard to feel growing upon me nn increasing difficulty in applying myself efficiently to tbe job. It wbb
Bomet'-ing I felt unwilling to admit
to myself, aud must less to others,
I kept pulling myself together, believing tbat tomorrow I would feel
more normal, but nature had to
finally be considered, and as you
know tbe doctor says I am so near a
complete nervous collapse my only
course is to resign.
I bave told you verbally of tbis,
and you know tbe regret aod men»
tal anguish that this means, and yet
some way witb tbe acceptance of
my resignation, an I your sympathetic uuderstaudiug of it all, I feel
more at ease. It is sorely dNapn
pointing—tbe outcome—but it is
settled and the suspense at least is
over aod I know I have done all I
could.
To you men, the members of the
executive, I want to pay this my last
sincere respect.    No live men  could
ever work with greater earnestness, ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
with more frankness, and meet  all you will be happy in tbe  thought
the trying problems of our adjustment period with any greater free
dom from jealousy or friction and
with aj liner spirit of friendliness
and true partnership in a commin
cause than you men and myself bave
shown. In leaving you I feel I nm
leaving real men and friends, and as
a personal friend it hurts to feel 1
can not continue to carry my full
share of tbe load with you. I want
you men to know, and I sbould like
to have our growers know, that I
have received more credit than I
should and less than your part. So
much was expected of me, as an in
dividual, tbat possibly it weighed
too heavily upou me.
Regardless of the fact that tbe
heavy end of our season is just before us, the suspense necessary in
completing all our plans, and in
getting the entire sales machinery in
Canada, tbe United States and over.,
seas is over and accomplished, and
I believe our judgment will prove
right. You and the staff fully sense
all that can be learned in applying
the principles of coop-ration I bave
never seen a body of men willing to
work so hard, and who feel so deeply
your duties to tba growers (who
trusl you) as you men and tbose on
tbe staff. It ia time tbat all our
grower members to a man realize
this; it is time for a searching of
hearts on tbe part of/every grower
whether be really has the loyalty,
the manhood and courage to meet
the hard problems before us all as
tbey have been met by tboso work
ing and fighting with these problems
in Central.
Our local managers and officers,
aod directors of our locals, must
continue to square tbeir shoulders
with you and share the problems in
tbe true spirit of cooperation, and
carry that conviction by their own
actious hack to tbe growers wbo are
members of these locals.
Tbis organization ie right; il ie
absolutely necessary to lhe province
and the last condition will be worse
than the first unless the growers
fully recognize that the true spirit
of cooperation calls for and hae a
right to command stalwart support;
a viewing of things in a big way instead of a small way; a kindly big
hearted attitude; a keen readiness
to give the movement tbe benefit of
tbe doubt; and a determed united
stand that it shall succeed.
Tbe limitations of the prairie markets with tbe waeat farmers going
through their present suspense
period must be recognized, but when
wheat begins to move and lhe small
country points resume even in a
small way normal purchasing capacity, we will find less restrictions,
and you men, tbe staff, and our
representatives will most effectively
use all lhe resources of the prairie
markets as things pick up. Our
growers have a right to expect the
utmost effort, aud tbey bave and
will get it. They must also realize if
things are disappointing tbat lhe
utmost has been done.
It is a burning shame that there
are enough outside tbe ranks of this
organization to drag things down to
a consignment basis—the pecnliar
competitive situation of the prairie
markets being able to assume only
a portion of the crop and tbe un
fairness to ourselves that can result
in an organization like ours trying
to maintain a market, sbould be
recognized by our growers and the
public at large.
Tne province of British Columbia
sbould be back of tbe association as
a province, and 1 believe lhe public
mind will eventually insist upon
tbts fact being a complished. You
can aud will succeed, and with a
known sense of appreciation, and a
righteous shame of uncallednfor
criticism, your burdens should be
less   and   your   hearts lighter, and

A   Handy   Man   to Have
Round
Theodore N. Vail was a versatile
man. He had been telegraph opsra
tor, baseball player, farmer and mail
clerk. He could cook too. Once
when driving witb Mrs. Vail, says
bis biographer, Albert BigelowPaine,
be stopped at a farmbouae and
asked tbe farmer's wife to give tbem
some dinner. She set out a pie and
some cheese; tbey were all she had
ready, she said, but he might look
about.
Thereupon Mr. Vail went out
into the barnyard, chased and
caught a chicken, found some tomatoes and other vegetables in the gars
den and prepared be chicken in
elaborate style with gravy and fixings; he attended to everything
without assistance. It was a fine
meal, and when they were ready to
go he paid the farmer's wife liber-
ally for it.
"Well," said the woman, "I
should think your wife would always be afraid of losing youl"
"Why so?"
"Because you're such a good man
round tbe house."

Strange Effects of Fire on
Ice
Many remarkable statements find their iuto our daily
newspapers. On$ oi the most
astonishing was made a few
weeks ago by a paper published in the middle west. A
bad fire had swept the city,
and among the buildings that
had burned was a large ice
house. The account in the!
newspaper read:
"Miller's ice house also
caught fire, and though a determined effort was made to
save the building from the
flames, it burned to the
ground. With it twenty thousand tons of ice were reduced
to ashes."
Special Correspondence of The Sun,
Victoria, August 15.—A striking
statement issued by Hon. J. D. Mac-
Lean, provincial secretary and acting premier, has effectively laid to
rest charges made by W.J. Bowser,
K.C, leader of tbe opposition in the
legislature, with regard to extrava -
s;ances of the Oliver government.
Mr. Bowser and some of his followers have repeatedly stated that the
government was overpaying the civil
service and permitting its employees
to spend too mucb money traveling.
Hon. Dr. MacLean shows that
during the last year of tbe McBride
Bowser government 11,555,000 was
paid out in salaries. Otber salaries
whicb sbould bave baen included in
tbe oivil service, and wbich are now
so included, amounted to $620,000,
or $2,175,000 in all. Tbe minister
claims that tbe increased cost of
living Iibh occasioned the paying of
another $870,000, while now departments, to administer the mothers'
pensions act and similar legislation,
cost $156,000. So that to carry on
the work of tbe couutry the Conservatives would have had to pay
out $3,201,000, or $401,000 more
tban the $2,800,000 wbicb tbe
present government paid during the
fiscal year 1920-21.
The acting premier also shows
that the Conservative government in
1912-13 spent for traveling expenses
$563,000, aB compared witb tbe
$428,000 spent by tbe Oliver gov.
ernmen last year. The old government spent $47,000 a month in tbis
way, while the present government
spent $35,000 per month.
The statement also shows tbe
number of persons employed by the
Conservative administration in various ways during tbeir last year of
office, aud also the number in tbe
employ of tbe present government.
In eacb instance a reduction it
shown, the following table giving
first the employees of the old gov*
ernment, and secondly the number
of persons at present employed:
Attorney-General Manson is in

His Punishment
An old farmer who hail been to
market and had got good prices for
his cattle, bought soveral yards of
cloth,intending to have his wife make
him a suit of clothes. Unfortunately,
he lost his puachase on his way home.
His wife, much annoyed at his expensive carelessness, told the story to
the vicar.

the good man and hailed him: "By
the way, Mr. Greeu, have you heard

Notes. Notions and Notables
The third party in this province is sending
out Searchlights. The trouble with searchlights is, that the party behind them is usually
enveloped in darkness.
.Recent experiments show that the amount
of light that a plant has affects its growth
fully as much asclimate. The iris.forexample,
which ordinarily blooms in May or June, would
not bloom under hothouse conditions in winter until its period of daily light was artificially laugthened by six hours.    The October
chrysanthemum was made to bloom   in  midsummer by shortening ^he daily light period;
lettuce by the same means was held io the
rosette stage for a long time; and the radish,
with only seven hours of daglight, grew for
more than a year before it finally shot up its
flower stem and died.
•'Handle with care" seems to mean Utile to
the ordinary freight handler. Perhaps he does
not read. A precautionary measure that some
companies are now using is stenciling on the
outside of the case a picture of what tho
paekage contains. The picture of an electric -
light bulb, it seems, is more efficacious thau
admonitions. An X-ray of what some of the
cases contain at the end of the journey might
be useful too.
Two American concerns competed for the
same business in a certain European port.
The customer, who was unfamiliar with Ameri-
<'in grading rules for the goods in question,
r ceived from one exporter a flat price that
c ivered all three grades included in his order.
Tlie other exporter, being fully familiar with
tlis requirements of the foreign market,quoted
tii fee different prices for the three different
qualities that made up the order. He got the
business. On investigation it was found that
tlio firm that received the order had in reality
quoted a higher price than the other firm, but
th it it had pleased the foreign customer by
grading the merchandise as that particular
foreign market required. An amusing phase
of the transaction is that the successful bidder
bought his goods from his unsuccessful competitor.
THE TRAGEDY OF A MISTAKE
Warren G. Harding's sudden death.brought
on by strenuous efforts on behalf of the world
court and human brotherhood, will always be
linked in history with the tagedy of Woodrow
Wilson and the tragedy of the millions in Eu
rope who since the war have suffered death
and misery through the failure of the United
States to grasp Wilson's great ideal of a united
world.
On March 4, 1921, Woodrow Wilson rode
beside Warren Harding to Harding's inauguration, broken in health and spirit in the knowledge that the man who rode beside him and
his associates had rejected the plan which in
Wilsoi.'s mind was to weld the world into a
peaceful brotherhood.
On August 8, 1923, Woodrow Wilson again
rode abroad. But this time he rode behind the
body of the man who in a little more than two
years had been converted to the cause for
which Wilson gave his health and himself had
given his life.
The mistake the United States made in rejecting the Wilson peace plan has been a mistake that kills. Two presidehts, two men who
towered head and shoulders over humanity,
and millions of hungry souls in Europe have
been sacrificed to that mistake. The toll has
been over-heavy.
Only the man Wilson, white, gaunt and
silent in his lonely home on S street, can tell
us just how ^leavy that toll has been.
Woodrow Wilson has seen it all. His was
the hand that fired the world to a new hops
of peace.
If the age of Caesar was the age of conquest, Louis of courtly splendor, Victoria of
homely virtue, Roosevelt of the robust ego,
then surely was the Wilson age that of noble
dreams, of the unlocking of men's hearts with
the key of high thoughts, whereby the world
wept, repented, promised.
Woodrow Wilson saw that age come and go.
He saw men's tears of repentance dry up again
in fhe biting wind of selfishness.
He saw, too, another man rise up, a man
who, like Saul of Tarsus, had seen his vision
by the roadside and who had thrown his
weight on the side of humanity. And he saw
that man go to his tomb.
And is it not possible that that white, old
figure in his Washington retreat can see even
more and rejoice at it? Is it not possible that
he sees in the sacrifice a promise that once
more his people will catch a fleeting glimpse
of the high visions they saw iu his day and
lost again? And that they may be moved by
that glimpse to a new plan of world unity that
the sacrifice will not be in vain?—Vancouver Sun.

A gentleman wbo was a member
of one of the ari-tneratic London
clubs had bis umbrella taken from
the raok by some other member.
Naturally he wss offended, and
promptly affixed this notice to the.
olub bulletin board:
"The nobleman wbo took away
•n umbrella not bis own oo Februri
ary 20 will please have the goodness
to return it to the rack."
Tbe bouse committee did not iike
the form of the notice and had the
member before them.
"Why should you suppose a no*-
bleman took your umbrella?" tbey
asked bim.
'•Well," replied tbe aggrieved
member, "tbe constitution of the

I HAD been tnld to expect ft Irani* formation; that a
new order nf things* was being born In Southern
Alberta; th:; 11 new system of farmini' wat taking tho
place of the id. I was told that the dnys of "scratching
In" and of ". oil mining" were wne days. Nsverthsless,
I waa not prepared for what I saw.
Fifteen v oars before, I had travelled through this
country and had seen only a few scattered farmsteads
set out on lhe "bald-headed" prairie, four square to all
the winds that blew. There were no trees, only a
stretching (xpanse of prairie that merged into white-
topped mountains on the west and meeting the sky on
the east In an unbroken horizon. A few homesteaders
were straffing in. Old cattlemen, trying to save their
ureat ran-*<\ were spreading stories that farming could
never be a sueecss tn Southern Alberta.
But the homesteaders came. Then later the big
farmers arrived with their tractors and ushered In the
era of thc thousand as-tre wheat ranch., A series of "wet
years" made Southern Alberta famous. Nowhere had
such craps ever previously been heard of. The Noble
Foundation, one ef the largest farming corporations ln
lhe world, brought tn a crop of wheat from one thonsand
acres that threshed 54,000 bushels! The country waa
thick with elevators. In 1915 and 1916, Southern Alberta reached the peak of prosperity. A series of unproductive -rears followed when rainfall was scant
Some farms were abandoned, but, mostly, men held on,
1 inyed up by the wonder harvests of other years.
The problem was purely one of moisture, aad the
OoeemiuimU of the -Dominion and the Provinoe set
about to study tt The sell was of the greateet fertility, the climate was right Something to supplement
the aataral rahifaU waa wanted.    The CaavadUa PaeUle
ftsViiij.-'
Railway and other corporations had already developed
tracts of land by irrigation. It wae no experiment, and
so a constructive policy of irrigation was commenced,
backed by both Governments.
It. is ln the train of Irrigation that the new order
of things ls coming in Southern Alberta. Today as you
drive over the prairie, through the Irrigated tracts of
Strathmore and Brooks, south through the Bow River
Project and on Into Taber and Lethbridge, the flatness
is broken on all sides by farmsteads that nestle among
trees—young trees growing taller and taller every year.
Hedges are growing where once waa barbed wire.
Shrubbery is luxuriant. In the background are fields of
Alfalfa, Indian Corn and Wheat Dairy cows are seen
on green pastures. The farms are small, but they are
real farms, and the homes are smiling homes of contented people. There ls no "scratohlng in" or "soil
mining." These are permanent homes on the threshold
of a future bright with promise.
In the City of Lethbridge, around whieh most of the
new Irrigation development ls procsesjding, aie Hound
tree-lined streets, beautiful homes set ln hedge enchased
lawns, and one of the finest little parks that Canasta
can boast. The city has been thoughtfully planned ud
symbolises in Its setting the spirit ef a people pledged
to permaneney.
For those who knew Southern Alberta tat its tofaney,
there Is a pleasant surprise waiting. Wherever Irriga-
