cnief reductions in expe se were
made io tbe following items:

For bad debts, in 1924, it was
necessary to write off $9,470,5o,
but iu 1925 only $2,848.07 was res-
quired for this purpose.
Oo the other hand, we find increases in expeoditure over 1924 in
a number of items, such as:
Inspector's traveling expense,
1924, «568.06; 1925, $2,104.60.
Reserce * for depreciation, 1924,
$841.65; 1925, $2,008.36.
Several items appear for the first
time in the "expenditure account,
these being:
Special   apple   crate   and
cold storage experiments!  742.48
Control committee. ..      513,26
O.K. Bulletin  1,184 75
The first of he above items is for
the cost of "egg crate"-containers,
an experimental shipment which
was sent to Great Britain, and for a
small quantity whicb was donated
to tbe Dominion experimental farm
for cold storage experiments. The
second item covers the Associated
share cost of the control committee
of tbree members that exercised supervision over the shipments of the
Associated and a number of itade-
pedeot shippers during the season.
Oa the revenue side of tbe ac.
count it ie interesting to note that
the interest earned on bank balances
was less than io tbe preceding year
by $3,348.20, thus showing tbat
monies were distributed more
promptly to locals after collection.
Tbe pool operating account shows
that, after providing for all chargis
aud costs, tbe balance available for
distribution to growers for the whole
crop amounted fo $2,538,994.98 as
compared wilh $2,817,981.80 in
1924-25 Brokerage charges are reduced by $7,037 28. Assembly
charges are increased by $9,346.44,
chit liy due to tho fact that the unusual shortage of a number of cotn-
'mo lilies in some districts made it
uecess ry to bring theae commodities
froui other points to complete car
lot shipments to a greater extent
than is customary. Transportation
shows as $230,310.15, compared
with $104,400 13 in the previous
year;I thh does not represent any
increased cost for freight, but is
simply due to the different system
under which our shipments toQreat
Britiin are'oow handled. In past
years all freights were, paid by the
auctiou houses to wbich our fruiti
waB shipped, and the coat of the
freight was deducted when 'returns
were made; this year a large part of
th?; freight was prepaid hy the Associated sod lhe returns from our
agents were correspondingly greater.
The coat of government inspection j
was lower by $9,873.17; it will be
specially inspected and certificates
issued showing condition at time of
shipment; it was not found necessary to use tbis service to tbe same
extent as in tbe year previous.
The cost of oiled wraps shows a
very large increase, b ing $48,-
595.85, as a-rainst $16,783.70
in 1924-23. At the meeting of man*
agers and delegates from locals beld
on March 30, 1925, the question of
oiled wraps was tally discussed and
ia was then decided that tbey should
be used with all of our leading varieties of apples,Mcintosh and later;
this being io line with tbe practice
of tbe leading American shippers
wbo have found it possible 1$ obtain
a substantial preminm for apples eo
wrapped. Experience gained during
tbe year brings the belief that oiled
wraps are of real advantage only od
certain varieties, and tbe intention
is to confine their use to only such
varieties in future, wbicb will
greatly reduce tbe amuunt to be
spent for this purpose.
Storage charges amount to 121,»
022.12 more than in the previous
yebrjtbe very severe weather experienced on tbe prairies in tbe autumn months greatly slowed down
distribution at the time wben it
should be at its height aud made it
necessary to put into cold storage
large quantities of fruit that otherwise would have gone into immediate consumption.
A new item, "Forwarding Export
Shipments." appear in the pool
operating account,tbis item amounting to $1,682 07.   This is an item
tbe -tost of which was formerly ad*
uancd by the British auotioo brokers and deducted from tbeir reiurns.
Tbe $10,613.48 written off for
trade mark completes the payment
for tbe OK brand, so tbat tbis item
will not appear another year in the
statements.
Liabilities and Assets.—In tbe
balance sheet we notice ibat the
$30,000 paid out for O.K. brand is
added to tbe reserve, tbis being in
accordance witb tbe resolution
passed at tbe last meeting of shareholders, and being offset by a similar amount on tbe opposite side of
the sheet. Tbe reserve proper was
added to during th year by the
sum of $24 573.54 and was reduced
by the payment of $35,749.30 to
Growers' Packing Houses, Limited,
the latter sum being to make good
tbe difference between the amount
paid for buildings and equipment in
1923 and the sale price at wbicb
these properties were turned over
to tbe locals. The actual amouut in
tbe reserve is thus reduced by $11,.
175.76. Tbis reserve is mostly tied
up io buildings, equipment and
organization expenses, as listed under tbe heading of assets and a com
paratively small proportion of it is
available in actu I cash for ourrent
needs of the Associated. Id tbe reserve we find tbe sum of $1,042.87,
wbicb represents the surplus realized
in vegetable purchasing during the
year and wbicb hae been set aside to
offset any possible losses in future
dealings. Tbe reserve for advertis
ing represents the unexpended por
tion oi tbe appropriation for jhe
past year.
In tbe assets we find tbe 'invest.
mentB in real estate and buildings
increased by the acquisition from
Growers' Packing Houses, Limited,
of buildings at Ashcroft and Armstrong. These were purchased from
independent shippers at the time of
tbe formation of the Associated and
it wae found impossible to sell tbem
to any local, there b?ing no local at
Ashcroft and tbe Armstrong local
not being iu a position to buy and
oot jequiring tbe building at tbat
point.
The shares in the Canadian Fruit
Distributotors, Limited, represent
tbe total capital stock of that company with tbe exception of one
share issued to each director to
qualify bim for office The class
"A" shares in tnis company are the
only ones having voting power.
The deterred charges are shown
as $19,031.61 as against $27,696.43
a year ago and will be further writ"
ten down year by year.
During the year the Associated
added to its membership so tbat at
tbe end of tbe fiscal year it bad 114
more members under contract than
it bad wben commencing business
in 1923, in spite of that, due to one
cause or another, 93 bad fallen away
(at the time of writing tbis increase
has been added to by* another 20
contracts). It would thus appear
tbat, in spite of tbe efforts of tbose
who are constantly trying to win
members away from the Associated,
tbe organization is stronger than it
ever was before as far as numbej of
members is concerned. Unfoitun-
ately some of those who have broken

In the late summer of 1826 Lieutenant-Colonel John By, of the Royal
Engineers, selected the spot where
the Rideau Canal should enter the
Ottawa River, and In eo doing settled the site of what afterwards became tbe capital ot the Dominion of
Canada. The centenary of thiB
event is being marked this coming
August by a celebration which ls
expected to be national in character.
The Dominion Government has already Intimated Ita Intention, not
only ot taking psrt, tut of signalizing the occasion by extension of Us
' works for the beauttftcathm of tlie
capital. The celebration itself -will
Include historical pageantry and
will draw from the western plains a
spectacular "Stampede" as Illustrative ot one of the historical phases
of the development of that broad section of the Dominion .
In making his journey up the Ottawa, Colonel By was not planning
for the capital of a Dominion but
striving to strengthen the defences
of one of the out/works of the British Empire. "During the war of
1812-16," Bays Hamnett P. Hill, ln a
brief history ot the construction ofi
the Rideau Canal, "the British authorities experienced much difficulty
in attempting the defence of the
western part of the province. This
was owing to the difficulties of
transporting men and supplies from
Montreal to Kingston, because of thc
rapids on the St Lawrence River.
They were also faced with the danger of a IT. S. army blocking progress up the river by seizing some
of the islands near Kingston. The
cost of transport from Montreal to
Kingston was also excessive, being
fifty-foil** shillings per cwt
This was the problem which Col.
By came out to Canada to solve. He
had spent nine years In this country after 1802, when he had been entrusted with the construction of thc
Martello towers at Queftec and the
rebuilding of tbe Citadel, and ho
had also superintended the construction of the Cedars Canal near Montreal. The task of building the
canal to connect the Bt. Lawrence
and the Ottawa Rivers, 126 miles in
length, through uninhabited country,
was jrlgantlc at that stage of the development of tlio country, and Its
successful completion stamps Its
builder as sa engineer of bigb rank.
The coming of railways has superseded it and rendered lt practically
useless as a carrier of traffic; but lt
rendered valuable service in earlier
days for the' settlement of the Province of Ontario, both east and west
Three years after Bytown became
Ottawa, it was chosen as the capital
of the old Province of Canada.
Tha centenary celebration this
summer will last two weeks, from
August 16 to 28. The first week-
August 16 to 21—will be devoted
particularly to the centenary program, which will Include an historical pageant illustrating outstanding periods and events in the hlatory of the capital. During the
same period the Edmonton Sampede
■will give a dally program; while arrangements are also being made for
holding the Rudder International
Power Boat races for two days of
tliat week. Plans are not fully completed for the celebration, but
among other proposals under consideration are the erection of a monument to Colonel By. The Dominion
Government ls also preparing plans
for the extension of tho Driveway
which ls such an attractive fuatur*
of the city.
Ontario's Timber
Plays Second Fiddle
Ontario lumbermen aod the Toronto Globe do not take very kindly
to the idea of British Columbia's
woods being used for the new provincial buildings io the Toronto Exhibition grounds. Tbey want to
know why timbers from Ontario
sbould have to play second fiddle to
timbers from this province. It is
quite a natural inquiry,
Tbe answer is to be found in tbe
efficient way wbicb thejlumber trade
extension department of British
Columbia has carried on in Ontario
during the last few years. Timber
buyers in Ontario have been convinced in many important i particulars regarding tbe w^ods of tbis
province. As a result of that.ordera
have increased «t a rapid rate, and
(ihe eastern produoer is feeling the
pinch of competition.
What has taken place in Ontario
is taking place in Kurope. .This
market bas grown appreciably during the past two years. But tbe
Canadian field is regarded by tbe
minister of fands as worth exploit-
ing still fnrther. As evidence of
this be has just issued a pamphlet
setting forth the virtues of British
olumbia's woods in French. The
ancient province is the next objective of the lumber trade extension
department.
Export of Timber in
Raw Form Negible
Lass tban 2 per cent of tbe annual timber cut of the province was
exported from British Columbia last
year in tbs form of raw logs, Last
year's log export was less tban 'bat
of the previous year, and formed a
neglible factor in tbe Unfted States
lumber industry. The total timber
-cut in tbe province laet year wae
over 2,500,000,000 feet. Authority
for export was given for some 40,-
000,000 feet. Some 150,000,000
feeet was exported from crown
granted lands, over wbich the government bas no control.

Notes • Notions • Notables
A copy ofthe British Gazette, published by
his majesty's stationery office during the late
general strike in England, has managed to
find its way into The Sun office. The most
remarkable thing about its contents, from a
newspaperman's point of view, is its circulation statement. Here it is: May 5,  232,000;
: May 6, 507,000; May 7, 655,000; May 8, 836, -
000; May 10,  1,127,600; May 11,  1,801,400;
1 May 12, 2,209,000 Even the honest, ordinary
circulation manager will scarcely be able  to
■ observe the magie increase in these figures
without a tinge is envy"; but to the bunch of
jazz newspapers in this country that endeavor
to gain and hold their readers by circus and
lottery methods, by fake contents and even by
publicly kissing subsoribera' babies, they mnst
produce a brain storm as violent as an Arctic
blizzard. They carry a moral, however. If
you have a meritorious article that the people
want they will soon find it out.
If you live in the city you are from two to
three times likelier to die from cancer than if
you livv- in the country. Kentucky's board of
health finds tbat in s me cities the difference
is from five to fourteen times what it is in the
rural districts. JustMhy this is so may only
i e snrmised. In the country folks live considerably closer to nature.
Tails of animals' fur are the only ornaments worn  by  married  women  in Kismu,
'     Kenya colony, British East Africa, and these
are "regarded as the equivalent of wedding
rings, Mrs. Patrick Ness, traveler and writer,
tnld members of tha Victoria league in London. These women were proud of their tails,
and insisted upon wearing them at all times,
'  even when bathing in the rivers.
Eyebiows protect the tissue above thu eyes
and have a great cosmetic value in being au
agent of softening hard facial features and by
contrast enhance the beauty of the skin.
Eyebrows are said to create a proportionate
cosmetic value for the nose brows and fore*
head and accentuate the contour of the
face.
France's stationary population is not due
entirely to a low birth rate. The English birth
rate closely approaches that of France, but the
population of England steadily increases. The
explanation is that more French tban English
babies die. In 1923 there was a birth rate of
19.4 per 1000 population in France and 19.7
in England. The deaths of infants under one
year of age du ing the same period amounted
t, 96 per 1000 births in France and 60 in
England.
Rhinestones are artificial gems made of
paste. The are colorless, of higb luster and
made in imitation of diamonds. Their chief
use is in the manufacture of cheapjewelry and
decorations. The name w.as given them because they were first made in the region
along the Rhine.
A very rare animal h-?s recently arrived at
the London Zoological garden in the form of
a pa golin, or scaly anteater. With tbe exception of a solitary specimin which survived
only three days, this extraordinary beast
has not been represented in the.colbction for
half a century. It is difficult to believe that
the pangolin is really a mammai, for save on
qlie underparts it is covered with overlapping
bony scales, arranged fircone fashion, and
looks more like a reptile or a minature of
some prehistoric monster. The animal • is
destitute of teeth, and is in the habit of lick".
ing up   ants and  termites with a long and'
worm-like tongue. Owing to the enormns
number of these insects required to satisfy
the appetite of a pangolin, the zoo specimen,
which comes from Hongkong, will have to
content itself with mock meals, composed of
mashed meat and milk flavored with the dried
pupae of ants, familiarly known as ants' eggs.
The rumor spread about that a woman of
uncertain age, whose JJchances of matrimony
were rather remote, was going to be married.
Meeting a friend, she was asked, was it true.
"Well, not exactly," she replied, "but thank
heaven forth1 rum r!"
Oratorio is the name given to a sacred musical composition, the subject of it being gen
erally taken from the Scriptures. The name,
oratorio, is said to be derived from the fact
that these musical compositions were first
performed in an oratory or private chapel attach d to a church. The first oratorio is said
to have been produced about 1550 by St.
Philip Neri.
The ruler of a country is not always the
best known person in it. A well known explorer tells the story that he asked an Eskimo

president of the United Statos, Both answered
"Edison."
I)iphenylaminechlorarasine, which causes
sneezing, is one of ,,the most importai.t war

Poems From EasternLands
Japan
A Maiden's Lament
Full oft he swore, with accents true and tender,
"Though years roll by, my lovo shall ne'er wax old!"
And so to him my heart I did surrender,
Clear as a mirror of pure burnished gold;
And from that day, unlike the seaweed bending
To every wave raised by the summer gust,
Firm stood my heart, on him alone depending,
Aa the bold seaman in his ship doth trust.
Is it some cruel god that hath bereft met
Or hath some mortal stol'n away his heart)
No word, no letter since the day he left me,
Nor more be cometh, ne'er again to parti
In vain I weep, in helpless, hopeless sorrow,
From earliest morn until the close of day;
In* vain, till radiant dawn brings back the morrow,
I -sigh the weary, weary nights away.
No need to tell how young I am and slender—
A iittle maid that in thy palm could lie:—
Still for some message comforting and tender,
I pace the room in ssd expectancy.
—The Lady Sakanouhe.
c4ncient History*
[TAKENFaOMiVENTV-YEAR OLD SUN FlLES.]
Since the announcement of tha letting of the
Kettle Valley line contract, which was given
in last Tuesday's issue of The Sun four days
in advance of any other paper published in the
Boundary, events in railway circles have
moved swiftly. A number of grading outfits
have already arrived in the city, and a caoip
is now being established at Ward's lake.
' The main building of the Grand Forks Steel
Constiuction Works has bean completed and
the foundation has been laid for the second
building.
With two railways racing for Franklin
camp, it is only reasonable to suppose that
that district is about to witness a season of
unparalleled activity this year.
Evidently a printing office is badly needed
in Franklin. The Hotel Waldorf Astoria has
smoothed a huge pine tree near its front door
and uses, the same for an hotel register, while
the Hotel Franklin uses a hewn pine board
for the same purpose.
The city council has decided to keep bi-
cycl sts off the sidewalks in order to make
more room for baby carriages.
The Great Northern railway compeny has
decided to double the capacity of its roundhouse ai Weston.^ within the city limits.
Erskine Smith & Co. have purchased an-
another team for their Franklin stage, and
after this week the stage will be run every
other day instead of twice a week as at present.

his feet still further back to let sheep settle

The sheep Is here shown as it is

be   held   over   against   its

straight by pressing hand in

should never be pulled out
for shearing.   If this is
done the sheep will start
to kick. With leg held
straight as shown in

cannot    yank   leg

Now  the  sheep  is  finished,   note  the  unbroken blanket ol wool and the smooth
appearance of the sheep.    No ridges,

ON THE BEACH AT MANITOU
LONG before the paleface came
to the broad and rolling
prairies, the Red man knew
and appreciated. the curative. properties of Little Lake" Manitou,
which is located near Watrous,
Saskatchewan, on the main line of
the Canadian National Railways.
And :the first white aettlers who
came, In advance of the railways,
to settle on their homesteads in
nnd around Watrous, soon learned
of this lake with its highly mineralized waters, so that Little Lake
Manitou had its reputation made
when the flrst settlers reached the
couiftry.
Today thousands of residents of
prairie cities find Little Lake Manitou an ideal watering place, and
excursions are run from time to
time over-, the Canadian National
Railways from Saskatoon and
other cities to provide citizens with
a means of reaching this delightful spot
The waters of Little Lake Manitou are so highly mineralized that
the swimmer finds no difficulty in
floating on their surface and at the
same time their mineral qualities
are health-giving ih their action.
With a good sandy beacb for the
kiddles to play on, and water
chutes and other enjoyment features erected for their entertainment, Little Lake Manitou has become the ideal picnic spot for the
dwellers in the central region of
Saskatchewan.
A. L. Rawlinson, passenger agent,
and Victor Collignon, chief clerk of

An innovation is now in use along
the Laurentian run of the Canadian
Pacific Railway in the form of two

A record single shipment of Indian motorcycles, consisting of 85
cases from Armory, Mass., recently
arrived in Tokyo, having come forward, by Canadian Pacific rail and
steamer lines. The demand for
motorcycles in Japan is steadily increasing as this is considered a cheap
and convenient method of locomotion
and well suited to the somewhat narrow roads of the country.
Work on the New Grand Hotel at
Yokohama, Japan, started in March

height. The estimated cost is fl,-
150,000. Furnishings are expected

Initiative and resource shown by
the Foreign Department of the Dominion Express Company went far
to neutralize, if not entirely nullify,
shipping troubles during the recent
general strike in England. A fleet
of motor trucks in London, Manchester, Bradford and Liverpool
carried out receipts and deliveries
in the usual manner thereby eliminating any ill effects to the British-
Canadian trade during the period of
the strike.
The English Football Team now
touring Canada was met at Quebec,
where they arrived on the Canadian
Pacific liner "Empress of Scotland,"
by Samuel Davidson, Secretary of
the Dominion Football Association.
The team played the first game in
Montreal and then went on to carry
out the schedule at Hamilton, Toronto, Fort William, Winnipeg, Regina, Lethbridge, Calgary, Vancouver, Nanaimo, Victoria, Edmonton,
Saskatoon, Timmiru. The tour ends
July 14.
Travellers who arrived on the
"Empress of Russia" from the Far
East, and who crossed Canada in
order to connect with the sailing of
the "Empress of France" from Quebec Into in May, stated that action
had been started for the stabilization
of China and the end of brig.ind
rule. Under the chairmanship of Sun
Yen, son of the late president of
Southern China, Dr. Sun Yat Sen, a
meeting was held which may result
in the coalition of all the forces of
oc-.t in China.
