ON THEPRAIRIES
Vancohveir, August 20.—
Crop yrospects both on the
prairies and in the Okaaagan
are excellent, acoording to J.
H. Grisdale, deputy minister
of agriculture for Canada,
who arrived in the city Tuesday with Mrs. Grisdale,in the
course of an official inspection
tour ofthe west.
"I was agreeably disappointed in
the grain situation," aaid Dr Gris
daie. "Reports had led me to be
Heve that theerop was none tou
good, but I found a highly satis
factory state ot affairs. The quantity will be large and tbe quality
good. Some of the wheat will be a
little shrunken on account of tho
drought, but those who have ulready
threshed till me that tbe results are
very good."
Having visited the Windermere,
Kootenay Lake and Okanagan fruit
districts, Dr. Grisdale stated that
the fruit crop looks exceedingly well
It is a littta light around Vernon, but
otherwise very satisfactory.
Speaking of the results obtained
by the experimental farms in the
Okanagan, the deputy minister said
that the farm at S-. mmerland had
demonstrated the value of cover erops
among the fruit trees.
■'These cover crops will be the salvation of the fruit industry," he said*
'•They comerve the water and protect
the roots from winter damage*. This
has been amply demonstrated by the
experimental farm and is being taken
up by tbe industry with excellent re
'suits."

GRANT'S WEEKLY
MARKET REPORT
FROM CALGARY
Heavy smoke^as been overhang
ing Calgary this week, almost ob'
souring the bud. The first part of
the week was dry and w-rm. Today
tbere is a heavy rainfall and the
smoke has cleared away. '
Harvest operations are now gene
eral throughout the prairies
Tbere is no demand for British
Colombia vegetables ot a kind tbat
oan be grown locally. All wholesalers are receiving stock cars from
British Columbia filled with mixed
fruit and vegetables,such as Duchess
apples, orabspples, Bartlett pears,
plums, tomatoes, cucumbers, oom
sod peppers, and are finding ready
sale for them?
Imported oars of mixed stuff are
also coming in. Cantaloupes from
the south are now effectively shut
off b,. heavy arrivals trom British
Columbia, although today wholesalers are being tempted by offers o>
standard crates f.o.b. Washington as
low as 75c a crate.
Two cars of prunes arrived from
Washington and ooe trom Oregon
thia week. The arrivals from British Columbia bave been of good
quality witb few exception-, aod tbt'
market has been capable of oleauiii|i
up all offerings at fair prices
We ootid* o*otaloupe» coming io
ftom Penticton by express We do
not tbink Ibat tbis 'practice sbould
be coutiout-d as there is unijle
volume rolling oy 'freight to supply

the freight movement ie heavy in
any liue express shipments of siuii-
lar goods sbould be avoided. A

Wholesalers io Calvary nr* com.
plaining of too many so called semi
ripe torn noes from Kolowoa tbat
are arriving absolutely green. Also
tbe Kamloops pack needs more careful selection; by far too many cracks*,
rubs, misshape aod rough core are
oomiog in.
British Columbia prunes will he
on after Washington is past. In
our opinion tbey sbould be quoted
at #1.00 f.o.b. Vernon.

APPLE CROP IN
DOMINION FAR
Ottawa, August 19—Canada's
commercial apple crop for tbe year
is now approximately 99 per cent of
1924. A report Issued by the fruit
branch of the agricultural depart*
ment covering theeituation through*
ou the Dominion as on Au ust 1
gives the following estimated figures
for commercial apple production in
the various provinces of Canada:
New Brunswick, 51,969 barrels;

85 per cent of 1,981,350 boxes.com-
pared witb the 1924 yield of 2,331,-
000 boxes.
Construction ef the half million

Sanitary Aspects of
Farm Water Supply
It is a well known fact tbst witb
^jthe introduction of public Water
supplies in citirs and towns whhb
bad previously been dependent ou
domestic wells, tbe death rate from
typhoid fever, the most serious of
water borne dfseases, has decreased
to a remarkable extent.
In our country districts, however,
where the scattered populstion
makes the establishment of a publi-
water supply system impossible,
tbe farmer is forced to depend upon
his own domestic source, whicb ie,
in most cases, tbe shallow well.
Tbat sucb a well can be a source of
positive danger from typboW, dysentery, diarrhoea and otber die-
orders bas been amply proven, but
still many farmerB do not realise
fully the importance of a pure unpolluted water supply, or the daoger
to tbeir families and tbeir stock
lurking in contaminated water.
Tbe location of the farm well is
frequently faulty and denotes n
lack of knowledge of the danger to
health from water when there is
any cbanse of drainage or leaking
from such sources of pollution as
barnyards, cesspools, privy, man
ured fields, sink drains, eic. Not
only should tae well be placed at a
reasonable distance from sucb
sources of tilth,say forty to titty feet,
but also, if possible, on higher
ground. The more porous the
ground, the greater Bhould be the
distance from sny cont minsting
source.
Even when the well is removed
from any source of pollution, tbe
ground water should be msde to
filter through at least ten to fifteen
feet of soil befo-e entering tbe well.
Soil tende to remove germs and im*
purities from surface washings. The
water, however, should be made lo
really filter tbrougb lbe soil by insuring that tbe sides of tbe well, lor
a distance of twelve to fifteen fe-t,
are tigbt and impervious lo wnicr.
The top, naturally, should be so
constructed tbat oo ontemiustion
cau enter.
Waler may be seriously polluted
without showing this by its lasie or
appearance. A bright, sparkling
water is by no means a guarantee of
a pure supply. Wben, however,
water from h well becomes cloudy
or turbid alter a beovy rain, tbere
is evidently some defect, for tbis
condition indicates tbat nirfsce
washings ore enterirg without proper filtration.

An interesting discovery in photography is

skin. When the X-ray photograph is takeu,
uot only is the finger-print shown in detail,

the years 1000 B.C. and 600 B C. He taught
a dualism of power, one good and the other
evil. Light represented the former and dark

sun became worshiped as the great source ofj

This unique picture shows the much discussed Canadian Peonies grown in Montreal by Mr.
Ormiston Roy and shipped to England in cold storage in a Canadian Pacific vessel, on exhibition
in the window of the Canadian Pacific offices in London, England. The Royal Horticultural Society
has presented the Banksia Silver Medal to Mr. Roy and several London papers have remarked
editorially upon the extraordinarily perfect condition of the blooms after their long sea voyage. An
interesting feature of the picture is that in the window may be seen the reflection of the new Canadian

Five peaks in the Canadian Rockies have just been conquered for the first time by three Harvard and Hotchkiss students who were accompanied by their Swiss
guides. The BtudentB who climbed and named the new
peaks in the famous Columbia Ice field are Osgood Field,
Frederick Field and Lemond Harris of Boston. They
were led by the noted Canadian Pacific Railway guide
Edward Fuez, the oldest guide in point of service in the
Canadian rockies. Two of the newly conquered peaks
have been named Mount Harvard and Mount Hotchkiss
after the two American universities.       *
The party made five flrBt ascents including the hitherto
unconquered Mount Patterson, 10,400 feet, Mount Sir
James Outran. 10,700 feet, the South Twin, 10.60C feet
and the unnamed peaks, Havard and Hotchkiss. Besides
all this they discovered a new route to the top of the
second highest peak in the Rockies, Mount Columbia.

twenty-three hours. The aim of the exploring party, to
conquer the South Twin, was successfully attained.

KEEP OFF CANADIAN

What good does Mr. Meighen exa
peel to accomplish for himself and
ior Canada with bis constant attacks on Sir Henry Thornton and
the Canadian National?
The figures wbicb Sir Henry gave
io Vancouver last week show tbat,
notwithstanding s decrease in gross
earnings, tbere was an increase in
the et earnings of the Canadian
National amounting to 17 per cent
Surely tbis is a showing of whicb
Sir Henry and every Canadian National employee must tie proud.
And, as owners of 'be road, it must
bs plsasing to the people of Canada
to know that tbeir road is making
such progress,
So wbat bas Mr Meighen to gain?
And if he continued playing politics
against the Canadian National and
its 100,000 employees, will Mr.
Meighen Dot find tbe Canadian National aod its employees aod their
friends playing politics against
Mr. Meighen?
During his three years as president of the Caoadisn National, we
have never Been ia print, from Sir
Henry, one single statement of pos.
litical significance. On the contrary,
Sir Henry, by public and privste
gesture aDd utterance, has valiantly
fought against political interference
with ths road and its employees.
Io the interests of Canada aod in
the interests of tbe Conservative
party, it would seem like sound ads-
vice to Mr. Meighen to suggest that
he stop, bis uttacks on Sir Henry,
his organization, aod the Canadian
National.—Vancouver Sun.
