Incorporation of the Britinh Col
umbia Fruit and Vegetable Ex*
change, Limited, was decided on at
a mooting o. tbe Independent Sbip
pere at Kelowna last week. A charter will be applied for immediately.
Provieiooal directore are: Leopold
Hayes, VV. C. Duggan, 0 Jennine,
Kelowna; A. J. Finch, Penticton; J.
E. Montague, Vernon,
The first function of the exchange
is to chart tbe course of business
Irom production to distribution.
During tbe shipping season the ex.
change proposes to publish a daily
bulletin of shipments, prices and
tonnage in sight. Members have to
advise tbe exobaogn daily of their
shipments and prices.
It is proposed to finance the exchange by a charge per package,
revenues from shareholders and
membership fees. Tbe advantages
olaimed for tbe system are tbat it
will make for efficient distribution
by stabilising prices, eliminate
brokerage houses, and while it can
not prevent prices slipping, it will
acl as a brake by registering tbe
reasons aud placing tbe responsility.
The Associated Growers are not
joining tbe exchange at this time
but will defer decision until it is
seen if the majority of the independent sbinners go io.

Pattullo Favors Measure
for Relief of Farmers
in Dry Belt Districts of
. Province
Victoria, December 9.—A further
moratorium for tbe water users in
tbe irrigated municipalities of tbe
interior as to their debt to tbe conservation fund of tbe provincial
government was foreshadowed by
Hon. T. D. Pattullo, minietw of
lands, in tbe legislature yesterday
when moving second reading of hie
bill to amend the water act.
The bill already contains one
partial measure of relief Jus the
bard-pressed farmers of tbe dry belt
aod the minister stated tbat recoga
nixing tbeir difficulties he wae considering tbe extension of fujtber ret-
lief by a moratorium.
Arthur G. Coohrane, Conservative
member for North Okanagan, wbo
assailed tbe minister vigorously last

consider the plight of the water
municipalities, jumped to bis fe:-t

ment and stated tbat the two sides
to tbe controversy were getting
mucb closer together.
He exprersed belief that tbe
clause in the act giving tbe government power tu relieve water users
from paying any portion on the
loan burden thrown on their eboula
ders by tbe abandonment of their
lands by their neighbors did not go
far enougb, and marked time to

Col. Philip Moore, Princeton Graduate, big game
huntor, war veteran, and mountain climber, Is so
well known in the Canadian Pacific Rockies that, as one
guide put it, "he hails a grizzly when it passes him and
asks after ita missus and the cubs."
Ever since Col. Moore first visited the mountainous
regions of Alberta and British Columbia, he has managed
to spend part of each year hunting, camping, and climbing mountains. He returned recently from a summer cn-
i'oyed in Yoho Valley, where he added a tew more miles to
lis 2,500 mile record on horseback as a member of the
Trail Riders of the Canadian Rockies.
The building of good roads through the mountains and
the resultant growth in automobile traffic is a new
feature which adds greatly to the increase in tourists.
The opening of the Banff Windermere road, and the road
from Lake Louise to Wapta, thus making a splendid
hiehway all the way from Calgary through the Kicking
Horse pass and the valley of the Yoho, has given tourists
glimpses of wonderful precipitous eanjflrHs topped by
some of the moat majestic ice-clad peaks in the Rocki's.
Then, too, tho growth of the bungalow camp idea has
been phenomenal this season. Those whom the palatial
summer hotels do not attract yield to the lure of log
cabins, perched on the shore of a crystal lake, and shadowed by overhanging mountain peaks. With a haversack on one's back, one may hike from camp to camp, or,
if one does not scorn the saddle, ride a pony along the
leafy trails.
All these pleasures Col. Moore has proved, and intends
to lecture this winter, as he has been doing for a number of
years, about the marvelous beauty of his beloved
mountains. He is not selfish. He wishes others to share
the joys of thc 'lone trail" which has lured him into
mountain fastnesses ever since he forsook the academic
halls of Princeton.

Perhaps more people are doing their Christ
mas   shopping early than is generally supposed.   People shop differently in these days
than in the past.    Merchants have made it a
pleasure for people to do shopping. One need
only watch the people that linger in front  of
the'display windows every pleasant evening to
know that the first steps  to the Christmas
shopping are being jaken. Added to this window display for she accommodation of shoppers are the many helpful suggestions   made
through tne advertising columns of The  Sun.
Especially do women peruse the   advertising
columns these days. Every modern and op to-
date store is an invitation to shop early.    One
only need look into a window in a casual way
to see standing invitation to shop here   now.
Christmas shopping is more of a pleasure and
less of a task these latter days because merchants have made shopping easier and have
provided means whereby people might investigate and deliberate for several weeks in advance of Christmas.
It will soon be safe to be shipwrecked on
Robinson Crusoe's island, where the government of Chile is to erect a hotel and establish
regular service of passenger steamers for the
benefit of Crusoe enthusiasts, readers of the
best loved story in the world. The English
people already have established a Crusoe hotel
at Largo, the little Fifeshire village from
which Alexander Selkirk, hero of Defoe's tale,
set sail on th. voyage which left him a cast
away on the island of Juan Fernandez. That
is better than naming some brand of cigarette
after him.
President Masaryk has been informed that
the Czechoslovakia archeological mission has

A citizen of Argentina has deposited $10 in
a Buenos Aires bank to remain for 1000 years,
interest to be annually compounded and added

the United States "for the purpose of promoting happiness and prosperity."
Financing their Christmas shbppiug will pot
no strain on some seven million Americans
who have been systematically accumulating
for holiday spending. This great army of forehanded persons, 17 pqr cent larger than that
otja year ago, constitutes the nation's Christ
mas  Savings   club,  whose  members   make
deposits weekly for fifty weeks.   Very shortly
they will withdraw their money, estimated at
•1.314,154,800, or 25 per cent  more  than   was
saved   in   this  manner in 1924.    Here is the
asis of a tremendous Christmas trade that
will go far in increasing tbe country's commer
dal  prosperity while adding euormously to
ihe happiness of the millions of recipients of
,'ifts this huge aggregate of dollars will  buy.
Sixty-eight hundred  banks  have cooperat-d
i i the saving of tbe Christmas funds.   This is
i service of incalculable value in addition   to
ihe customury services of these institutions.
This system of financing Christmas   shopping
nas taught a multitude of people how to save
ind make their savings count most. Christmas
funds are not only greater in the aggregate
i his year than heretofore, ahd owned by more'
oeople,  but the average amount credited to
the average is 8 per cent larger than it was a
year ago.   The cheques going to savers will
range in amount from $12.50 to $1000.    The
average distribntion per member this year will
be $44 88 as against $40.60 last year-   Verily,
a merry Christmns is in prospect for millions
who will receive as a result of these savings,
and a merrier for the vast number who have
saved and will be doubly blessed as givers.

With even greater comforts on board the palatial
ocean liners .than any to be had on shore it is not surprising that cruising has seized the popular fancy. This
year many will avail themselves of the opportunity of
making the Round the World Cruise on the Canadian
Pacific liner, Empress of Scotland.
The liner leaves New York on December 3 and returns
April 10 via the Panama Canal after vijiting over 20
countries en route, including 26 ports of call, and arriving
in the Holyland on Christmas Day. Cruise members

Ever since that time, some years ago no\v, when the
West was discovered by the East as the most likely
plaice to amass a fortune ln tho briefest possible time,
and the simple words, "Go West, young man!" vere
the best advlc« a parent could give a son; well, ever
since that time, the young man who heeded the advice
has been coming back East at least once a year, and
that once Is generally Christmas.
Perhaps the young man has amassed no great fortune; perhaps he has; and perhaps again he has fared
rather ill; but ln any event he usually finds that as
Christmas draws near, recollections of hiB childhood,
bis Christmas stocking, the tree at home, the plum-
pudding or the turkey and cranberries, constitute too
powerful a memory to negate. And because these
recollections are so pote.it, transportation compares
operate special services to handle what they call the
('hristrnoj? trnffic.
This year the crop has been extremely good; money
.vill be more free in 'he West than for 6ome time past.
The season's work is done and the Westerner will have
lots of time on his hands. If he has few financial worries he may spend quite some time In the East; there
Is much to attract him. Tliere Is the social life in the
big hotels, where all is luxurious comfort; winter sports
such as hockey, skiing, skating, sleigh riding and tobogganing to indulge in, or to watch, if ho so prefers the
round of the theatre; to make, wbere he will hear the
tunes that will be popular for the year, oi see the plays
tbat will be diacusaed at moat civilized dinner tables;
and If he bas brought friend wife, there aro the shops
to visit, though many a man has found this a costly
pastime, more so perhaps, than poker or the races.
However, from every angle, tho season In thc East
ls rich and pleasant. That side of the continent is a
magnet for holiday seekers and lt Is at that particular
time that the ancient provinces reclaim their sons, lf
only for tlie briefest of visits. This year lt will have
visitors galore.
Tho Canadian Pacific Railway announce that many
inquiries and requests for reservations have already
been made at tbelr agencies throughout western Caaada. This would indicate the likelihood of a huge
volume of traffic moving In an easterly direction this
December. A portion of it will no doubt move straight
through to the British Isles and the Continent, as many
settlers are originally from those places. The Canadian Pacific will run special trains from all western
centres, connecting directly with their Atlantlo liners,
sailing from the win.er port of Saint John, N.B., to aU
the larger ports ln northern Europe.
But the great portion of the traffic will be pointed
for Eastern Canada and the company will facilitate ita
movement by offering special train services and special
tourist cars that will obviate the necessity of change at
any point along the route, and further than this, special excursion rates will be given. These conditions
will prevail from December Gth to January 5th, and will

-Soviet Russia Now Plans Bigger
Wool Production
A RmUUia familii of the prosperous farming peasant elatt.
The visit to the United States, at
this time, of Michael S. Pereferko-
vltsh, manager ot the live-stock department of thc Soviet Russian government, Prof. Michel F. Ivanoff of
a Moscow agricultural university,
and N. N. Klebnik, official interpreter, carries with it all the significance of a step to progressive and
modern methods ln the new Russia.
According to theso three repre-
eentatives of the Soviet government,.
Russia 'now has about 80,000,000
sheep and hundreds of millions of
head of other live stock.
Rambouillet rams have been purchased by them, not to increase the
number of sheep, but to Improve
quality. It is expected that a better
grade of wool will be produced by
crossing of breeds. In this connection, sheep shearing machinery waa
bought to supplant the old-time hand
blades. This in itself ls expected to
•ncrease the wool crop about 1%, not
because the machine shears closer
than hand blades, but because lt removes the wool evenly and ln an
unbroken blanket, leaving no ridges
on the sheep.
Russia is anxious to enlarge Its
textile business with a view to producing its own wool for manufac
turing purposes. Another committee
from that country has been studying
textile mills ln Pennsylvania and
Admittedly, there ls great need ln
Russia for farming Implements as
the Russian farmer now has practically all the land he wants, but la
unable to develop all of his ground
because of lack of farm machinery.
Another great need la dairy machinery such as milking machines,
cream separators, pasteurizing machinery, horse and cow clipping machines and butter-making machinery.
M. Pereferkovitah said he intended
to buy more than 6,000 sheep, but
owing to misinformation as to the
best buying season, he arrived In this
country too late to get all he wished,
and so expects that next year aa
many as twenty mon will be sent to
this country to make theae purchases.
Russia is doing everything possible
to Improve farming and dairying
methods. Graduates of agricultural
schools are teaching farmers and
dairymen modern methods and the
use of modern machinery.
Many things point to Russia aa
one of the world's great future
sources ot dairy produota,
