a quarter of a million Americans

by the Bureau of Statistics, Canada's production of commercial
fruits for the past year showed a
decrease of $8,902,912 in value aa

$83,169,343 and in 1924, $24,266,481.
There has been a decided increase
in the first quarter of this year in
the ordinary life insurance written
in Canada as compared with that of
the corresponding; period in 1924.
The increase in March over February was from twenty-eight to
thirty-five million dollars.
According to the first weekly report issued by the Canadian Pacific

Vancouver', May 14.—In

The independent shippers
will not be under the necessity

but they will be under the

Among the modern parables that we find in "old Ed"
Howe's entertaining Monthly
is tlie following:
An old gentleman had a son
named Joe and said to him:
"I'm getting old and tired. I
want you to go to college,
become thoroughly educated
and take over the business.
Then I will spend the rest of
my life in ease."
So Joe went to college and
did fairly well. At the end of
eight years he was graduated
and said to his father: "I am
told by the professors I should
travel extensively before settling down and taking over
the business."
And the lather was willing,
and Joe went abroad for three
years with a liberal allowance.
Finally he came back, and
the father met him joyfully.
"Now," he said, "you can
take over the business, and I
will retire."
And Joe said: "Father,
don't do that. Manage the
busiuess a few years longer in
your usual vigorous fashion,
andtnen we'll both retire."

Church union is going forward all over the
world. Id the United .States tho Methodist
church, which split in two at the time of the
political dissensions between the North and
the South seventy years ago, is apparently on
the verge of coining together into one body.
In this country a still more important union
of Methodists, Presbyterians and Congrega-
tionalists is being voted on. And in England
the three branches of the Methodist body—
the Wesleyuns, the Primitive Methodists and
the United Methodists—have agreed to sink
all minor differences and become one "church.
The new body has something like nine hundred thousand members and will be, we understand, the largest Eonconformist denomination in Great Britain.
The new Hebrew university at Jerusalem,
which Lord Balfour opened with so much
ceremony a few weeks ago, has already one
great monument of intellectual achievement

the original manuscripts of his work on relativity to the library of the university. We
hope the ability togivea lucid explanation of
the learned doctor's theory will not be made
a requisite for a degree.
A new aeroplane motor has been designed

one of  which develops eight hundred horse
power, the other five hundred.  The enginears
who designed it have succeeded in making an
engine that delivers nearly one horse power
for every pouud that it weighs, that works as
well  upsids down as  upright, and that can
crnise about three thousand miles.    It  is de-
clared to  be by far the most efficient motor
yet constructed.

The Advent of Tea ta England
Tea was not used to any extent in England
till about the middle of the seventeenth
century, although knowledge of the wonderful qualities of the beverage had reached
Europe as early as 1517. During the seventeenth century, all tea was imported from
China and cost from $25.00 to $50.00 per
pound. Not until 1836 did any tea reach
England from India. In that year the first
shipment was made from the now famous
tea growing district of Assam. India today supplies fully half the world's tea requirements and provides some of the finest
teas grown. The rich body of "SALADA"

Type Your Laundry Tickets on This
lis, ladies and gentlemen, is a
. picture of the only Japanese
typewriter in captivity. It is known
as the "Hobun" typewriter. It inhabits the offices of Shanghai, Tokio
and other Oriental cities; is quite
harmless but somewhat difficult to
control. It is more complicated than
the Theory of Relativity, runs as
smoothly as a tank crossing the
Rockies and makes more noise than
a duet by a boiler factory and a
Salvation Army band.
Its function is that of typewriting
the Japanese language. It was. invented by an Irish mechanic named
Kiota Sugimoto and was on the
market in _ 1915. As a piece of
■njU'liinery it is infinitely superior to
th** typewritia Americana'. The
latter very seldom has more than 40
keys, the Hobun has three thousand;
the Americana prints a total of 84
characters, and the Hobun nearly
four thousand. Then again, anyone
can operate the American variety
but how many of our stenos could run
a Hobun, with its thousands of keys
and hundreds of levers.
It has (as we suspected) a unique
key-board arrangement. In fact, it
has no key-board at all. The type is
arranged face upward and serves the
dual purpose of key-board and
printing-type. To one side of the
platen is a lever which, when depressed over the desired character,
affectionately picks the character up,
rubs it gently on an ink-roller and
finally convoys it up to the pinion on
which the paper is rolled and ilius,
triumphantly  prints  the  character.
We have stated that the machine ia
complicated but really it is simplicity
itself — you merely learn the
Japanese language and a few thousand of ideographic Chinese characters; familiarize yourself with the
Hobun's three thousand keys, acquire
mastery over its multiplicity of leVers
and then — go ahead and type.
The specimen shown above was
captured by Canadian Pacific officials
in China and now occupies much of
the floor space of their office in Shanghai. The expert Chinese stenographer Beated in front of it, has been
known, when a rush Sb on, to produce
as much as one whole page of neatly
typed Chinese ideographs a day on his
Hobun. This record has not yet been
