period of 1924 show tha'tv-expenses
have been reduced this year by
some $10,000 and, while the volume
of fruit handlied is slightly less than
,iln the previous fear; the reduction
in expenses is greater than would be
indicated by tbe shrinkage in output
Conspicuous among the; reductions
ia tbe telegraph account, wbich ie
•4,778 76 lower than Mri rlWlJViid
the cost of prairie representatives,
which ie lower by $3,076.62 On
the otber hand, Associated inepec
tion costs are #2,121.70 greater,
showing that it has beep found
necessary to exercise more care in
order to maintain a bigb standard
of pack. Considerable saving has
been made in government iufpec
tion chargee, whicb laet year
amounted to 111,652.68 and this
year are some $9,500 less. This
saving does Dot show as reducing

that tbe pool prices will bs cor

of,;the  government's   whole

The bill is a sweeping one.

The absentee
  vote   in  British   Columbia
came only after very careful consideration by
the,whole legislature, claims Premier Oliver,
aud|it wiil be retained, despite attempts to
have it abolished. Opposition members are
inclined to agree with thu government
'tn* Reader that the present elections act is a ont
' as foolj-prpbf as cau be. However, minor
amendments, which will further strengthen the
statute, will be passed this session.
During she luncheon ititer'varat "a country
havtng presented the most promising budget
iu years. Material tax reductions bave been
provided for and it will uot be necessary foj
the government to borrow much money in
order to carry on during 1926.
Radio receiving sets are to be distributed by
a British missionary to natives in tha South
$ean islands. Coconut palms, 80 to 90 feet
feet higb, are to be used fur aerial masts.
Every time the legislature meets there fs a
complaint from opposition members and a
certain section of the press that the business
of tbe house is held up becuuse the government has not prepared its new legislation.
The truth is that it is impossible under the
present system of government through elected
repeesentatives to have all legislation prepared
in advance. The views of private members
from all parts of the country must be secured
flrst, ahd that appears to require on the avei
age about four weeks. At present legislation
is before the house which will have the con
sidsration of" all parties and repr sent tht-
views ot the entire elected body, instead ol
those of the executive council alone. For n
cabinet to force its own legislation upon the
house   would : be  little less  than autocratic

Constituting a record for Canada
and probably for the world, 3,447,-
624 bushels of aU grains were marketed on the lines of the Canadian
Pacific Railway in Western Canada
on November 19. Tlie nearest ap-
preach to this fi-rnre was the 8,406,-
000 bushels marketed on Octoaer ll,
1915, in tha year of one of the, greatest crops tke Dominion las ' ever
harvested. .
Reports received at Canadian Pacific Railway headquarters thia week
show that four more accidents occurred -In cases where' motorists drove
their cars into trains already tn tke
process of crossing levels. This
brings the total of accidents of this
kind up to thirty for the year. In
all four cases the automobiles were
damaged while the motorists escaped
witb minor injuries.

A broad1 generous policy of immigration is
needed for Canada and British Columbia, declares Hon. T. D. Pattullo, minister of lauds.
Participating in the annual budget debate,
the minister claimed that the provincial government was doing everything possible to encourage land settlement, and he predicted
that the expenditures made on reclamation
projects would return handsome profits.

Surely, the Scotch, aro the
people in the world, as they bear the brunt of
uost of the socalled humor. But there is
••nsiderable basis for tha well circulated
theory that the Scot is canny. Here is an au-
;. lien tic yarn, vouched for by Harry Furniss in
its 'Some Victorian Men" thit illustrates the
uint. When Bessemer, the genius who gave
to steel bis name, came to make his discovery
public, he put a lump of the famous steel in
ids pocket and made his way to Nasmyth, of
-Heel-hammer fame. Placing the metal on
Nasmytb's desk, he told him that be had made
in extraordinary discovery which would revolutionize tha whole metal world. Then came a

Parrot, sweet of voice, thy song now raise!
All thy words purify in Love's fierce blazel
Every point of Love as whole book shows;
Every mote of Love as bright sun glows.
Drowned iu one drop thereof Time, Space, in sooth;
Lost iu one grain thereof Both Worlds, iu truth,
Man becomes man through Love, Pure, Bright,
Teacher repected, guide of the right.
Through its beams everything man as chief owns,
Rays of sun into rubies turn blaok srones.
He wbo a Lover is on God relies;
Oq, on, upward still doth he rise.
One day he secrets shall descry,
Love makes the soul from sleep raise the eye;
Unto him all thiiJjgr<i shall oped be and shown,
Off e'en the curtain from Ood shall be thrown.

The Far Eaat has heard about
Canadian apples. The Canadian
Pacific liner Empress of Asia carried 8,000 boxes of apples when
clearing out of Vancouver last week.
General trade conditions between
Canada and the Far East are quite
healthy as there was also on board
the vessel 800 tops of Canadian flour,
100 automobiles and 160 tons of.Alberta beef.
With each succeeding year Great
Britain is relying more upon British
colonies.for agricultural supplies. In
the seven months of 1925 ending
July, Canada supplied Great Britain
with 4,927,266 pounds of butter,
compared frith 164,224 pounds fpr
the same period sf 1824, and 40,-
468,644 pounds ef cheese, compared
to 20,158,604 pounds for the same
period ef last year.
Two hears, six coyotes and fifteen
chipmunks were shipped to England
on the Canadian Pacific liner Montclare last week from the Toronto
Zoo te the London Zoo. In exchange,
the Curator ef these gardens has
been asked to supply Toronto with

**- in Canada are electrified, but there is no railway
organization* which does not rely to a greater or lesser
extent on electricity aa an aid to e'.Ticiont operation and
service. Electricity plays an important part in all of the
great Railroad Shops through the country. Some trains
a-nd cars are operated by power directly transmitted or
stored in batteries. Bridges arc operated, and a thousand
and one electrical devices are in corsstant use which
beside being labor Saving do away with the human element which might make- for inefficiency. Numbered
among these are the automatic Block Signals which one
finds distributed along the line of the Canadian Pacific,
and notices particularly in the Rocky Mountain passes
where they are more urgently required.
* To the average layman an automatic signal is just a.
signal, and the general public is only interested in it
because it gives added protection, or rather eliminates
possible danger from the portion of track which it governs.
To the railroad official it is more. It acts as watchman
against broken rails, open switches, a fouled track or any
other obstruction. Through a circuit in the rail thia la
accomplished, and if the circuit be broken, for the reason
that another train is occupying the block, or that there li
an open switch, a broken rail, washout or other obstruction, then the train approaching the signal may not pasa.
And while it awaits a through signal, trains following ia
the rear may not approach for the reason that the* are
also stopped by an automatic signal which will-not
release them until the preceding train has passed from
that section of the track which they desire to enter.
A perfect system. No electrical circuit — no thraugh
signal — no train may pass. .   *.
The value of this system in the Rockies ean hardly
be ov.-."-estimated. Not. only ia labor aaved. but the
company is able * o ensure absolute protection.
