When a vote for 1200.000 for
civil government of lhe fruit branch
department of agric-i'mre was under discussion in lhe bouse nt Otis-
wa, L H. Martell, Hants, advised
the .minister of ot;rict«ltiir«* to get
away from restrictions on tho apple
growths. 'The sooner the ministers
give adequate protection to tbe fruit
glowers the better," Mr. Martell
co'ilinued. He did not mean tariff
protection He meant protection to
the in-ill who put up a pack 61 go-d
appleti. The trouble was that the
minister, instead of trusting bis in
spectors In tbe maritime provinces,
was taking the advice of a lot of
highly paid officials at Ottawa.
Mr, Martell went on to say: "]
happen to be one who is not particu
Iar iu his good books," referring to
Hon. Mr. Motherwell; "but never,
thelese, I can protect myself, and I
can protect tbe interests of my constituents as long as I bave the bonor
of having a seat in tbis bouse.
"It is all very well," continued
Mr. Martell, "Ior tbe people to advocate shipping into tbe centra!
market of Canada. Itis all very well
to ask us ro sell oui produce in
western Canada. We cm not do it
under the present system of railway
rates, but right at home wbere tbe
people grow tbe best apples tbat are
produced in the British empire, we
are unable, through the fault of the
department of agriculture, to get
our apples on tbe English market,
wbich should be our chi-f market."
Grote Stirling, tbe newly-elected
member for Yale, B.C , explained to
the house tbe origin of the voluntary
request from the fruitgrowers of tbe
Okanagan for department inspection
to help them demonstrate to the
wholesalers that they were endeovor
ing to live up to tin? grades stamped
on their boxes.

An unusual consignment passed
through Montreal recently u the

were shipped to Austria to form part
of. a zoological exhibit there. The
animals, which are valued at $600,

Banff, Alberta.
Alberta farmers have recently
bean shipping a new commodity to
the market. During the past few
■rears there haa been a considerable
increase in the number of bee-keepers and laat year 160 keepers had a
total production of nearly 60,000
pounds of honey, valued at approximately $15,000. The exact number
ef bees is not known.

Canada leads the world in automobile exports in proportion to production, domestic sales or ownership of
motor vehicles or to population. Not
relatively but absolutely the automobile exports of the Dominion are only
exceeded by those of the United
States. Since 1920 the motor vehicle
exports of Canada have nearly
doubled, the increarc being from 9.8
per cent, to 17 per cei'.t. of the automobile export trade of the world.

In June next,
between three
and four hundred thousand
Canadians and
Americans of
Norwegian origin will gather
ut the twin cities
of Is.'iiinrapolis
and St. Paul to
celebrate by a
great national
gathering the
hundredth anni-
l'sofs-n.su,- Ijiale Hotline .      .
versary of the
.anding in America of the first
organized party of Norwegian settlers
on the Continent. It wa; in 1825 that
the little sloop Restuumtiunen, of 45
tons, set sail from Slavanger currying
a little band of adventurers who
settled in New York state and ever
since that time there has been a
steady stream of newcomers to this
continent from their homeland.
The coming gathering and its purposes wero recently discu.-.sed at the
lioad offices cf tho Canadian Pacific
Railway, Montreal, by Professor Gisle
Bothne of tho Minnesota slate University at Minneapolis. The professor
stated that the Legislatures of Minnesota had endorsed tho gathering
and had forwarded tbrough the
Si ere tary of the State bf Washington
invi :ation3 to President Coolidge,
King Haakon of Norway and the
Governor General of Canada. President Coolidge had already accepted
and Lord and Lady Byng have given
assurance that they will attend. It
iff expected that about 50,000 Norwegians now living in Canada will
attend the Norse-American Centt-n-
ni il.
The gathering will be opened on
June 3 next and about forty "Bygde-
\: :■■:■" or Norwegians Clans will hold
met lings during the first day. On
?'<"■' y June 7 tiie Bishop of Oslo,
■vhi-.ii until recently was known as
Christiana, will hold a divine service
aud the succeeding days will be
given up to meetings, field sports and
musical competitions, and an
historical pageant depicting the
Viking a.v'i.i-.iUc'O of ono thousand
yjars ago and the history of Norsemen at home and abroad up to the
present time, portraying their contributions to civilization, in discoveries, science, agriculture, industry and commerce, in art and literature
will be staged. The costumes will be
magnificent and in brilliancy of technique, in magnitude and splendour the
whole array will rival anything of its
kind that has heretofore heen produced. The other features of the Centennial are being prepared on the
same elaborate scale.
It is already arranged that a large
delegation from Norv/ay's parliament
will be present and there is some hope
that the Norwegian Crown Prince
may attend. Five Norwegian-American universities are closing for the
summer early so that their faculties
and students may be present. Professor Bothne pointed out that the
Norwegians had done much in the
building up of the central western
states and their influence waB shown
by the fact that the governors of no
less than five states were of Norwegian birth or descent. It has bcen
proposed that the Canadian Department of Colonization shall have an
exhibit at the convention. •
In the course of the interview pro-
feosor Bothne stated that undoubtedly the new United States immigration
laws would result in large numbers of
Norwegians coming to thia country
luring the next few yean.

It is almost impossible even fitti a long
growing season to raise two crops of potatoes
on tbe same soil in one year, because new
seed potatoes do not sprout and old seed potatoes can not be kept bt for planting uutil
tbey are needed for the second crop. But an
experimenter in California has discovered that
new potatoes cut in the usual way for planting
and immersed just before tbey are planted for
balf an hour to an bour in a weak solution of
nitrate of soda—three and one-balf pounds of
nitrate to ten gallons of water—will sprout as
quickly as new potatoes.

The year 1925 will be a "happy new year"
to tbe people of Stanford, Kentucky. At least,
tbey will be out of debt to Dr. J. F. Peyton,
As for that veteran practitioner, be may bave
a feeling like that of Old Scrooge after the
metamorphosis oi that old curmudgeon.   The
only objection to this simile is that Dr. Pey
ton   has always been just the   opposite of
Dickens' character iu all the years he has ministered to the people of tbat section, rich and
poor alike. He never has refused a call to service.   The   money part of the   transaction
played no role in his philosohyy. And be has
been an active pbysiciau in the town 05 years.
During the civil war be was surgeon in tbe
Union army. Notwithstanding his advanced
years, be is active aud devotes as many hours
daily to medicine as at any time during his
career. Dr. Peyton, like all rural medicos,had
accumulated many worthless accounts in his
years of practice. Many probably never had
any idea of paying the doctor after he bad
brought tbem back to health.   Others had always beeu too poorly ott in cash to settle the
debt.   It is likely  many a baby Dr. Peyton
brought into the world grew to manhood or
womanhood not knowing the stork's account
was never settled. Auy wa,, the other day Dr,
Peyton made a great bond tire—the most extensive and the most unusual Kentucky has
kuown. He burned $80,000 in accounts.   This
was his accumulation of "bad debts' during all
these years. It meant a clean slate. Tbey were
charged to profit and loss. And then Dr. Peyton made au announcement quite in keeping
with his philospby of life. He gave notice that
thereafter most of his time would be devoted
to charity practice. Dr. Peyton is a survival
of a type of medical man who has become
nearly   extinct—tbe   general    practitioner.

A duck killed by Charles Glessner of Oneida, .South Dakota, had a bone arrowhead
imbedded in its breast. It is believed that
the arrowhead, which is as sharp as a needle
and only an inch in length, is made from walrus bone. The meat around the arrowhead
was in perfect conditiou and indicated that
the wound must have been healed for several
weeks. Apparently the duck was a visitor
from as far north as the Arctic circle.
The bureau of home economics of the department of agriculture at Washington has

that green tomatoes and green peppers could
be kept successfully in brine for as long as six

The "Pale" was a district in Ireland within
which English sovereignty and law were acknowledged after the invasion of the island by
Henry II in 1172. This territory varied in extent at different times; ut in a general way
comprised the counties of Dublin, Meatb,
Carlow, Kilkenny and Loutb. The word
"pale" is derived from tbe Latin palus (stake),
and is often used figurative y, as in the ex<
pressions, "To walk the studious cloister's
pale"; "Without the pale of civilization."
ai.Since 1831, when railroads began to be de

there are today more than 430,000 miles of
surfaced or imdroved roads.

The term "palatinate" is a survival of feudal
times. In the days when a man's ho us 3 was
a.tually his castle which he had to defend by
force of arms, kings were not anxious to as-;
sume responsibily. Therefore they found it
convenient to assign their adherents to dis*
tricts, giving each the power to be master,
collect taxes, and administer justice as he saw
fit. The term "palatinate" was appropriately
applied to such a holding, as it comes from
the same Latin root word as J'palace" and
"castle." Three hundred years ago palatinates

This antique looking wheelbarrow and spade do not appear capable of very
hefty Bervice now, but nearly half a century ago they carried the weight
of a very important event — the ceremony' marking the commencement ol
the construction of the Canada Central Railway through Pembroke, Ontario.
Following the ceremony, the spade with which the fiftit sod was turned and
the wheel-barrow into which if waa shovelled in tho presence of a very
enthusiastic crowd, were presented to Miss M. P. Moffat, daughter of the
Reeve of the village, the lady who performed the ceremony ofthe naming
of the road and christening ft with a bottle of champagne. They recently
passed into the hands of the Canadian Pacific Railway, which company
took over the Canada Central lines in 1881, and will be added to a museum
of relics connected with the early dayB of the railroad which is being former1

So much for the actual ceremony. The Pembroke "Obe-srver" for

THK HUR—Bring your boot

work. Look for the big

The historic put of the Nootka section of the West Coast waa recalled
recently when Lieutenant-Governor Walter C. Nichol, of British Columbia, unveiled and dedicated a monument commemorating the explorations of
those great English navigators, Captain Cook and Captain Vancouver.
The monument was built under the auspices of the Historic Sites and
Monuments Board of Canada which is placing similar memorials across the
Dominion on sites hallowed by interesting chapters of Canadian history.
A large party travelled on the Canadian Pacific S.S. Princess Maqulnna
for the ceremony and left the steamer at the cannery wharf, boarding
launches for the short run to Friendly Cove. The party included Lleut.-
Governor Nichol, H. J. S. Muskett, his secretary. Judge Howay and Mr.
Forsyth, Dr. C. S. Newcombe. the well-known historical authority who
wrote the "Circumnavigation of Vancouver Island," Prof. W. N. Sage of tha
University of British Columbia, Mra. B. B. McMlcking, representing tha
I.O.D.E., Mrs. and Miss Howay, Thomas Deasy, late Indian agent for
the Queen Charlotte agency and a pioneer of 1859, Dr. David Donald.
Mrs. Cave-Browne-Cave, and Professor Macmillan Brown, chancellor of
the University of New Zealand. Dr. Macmillan Brown is one of the leading
ethnologists of the Pacific, and haa heen spending the summer on the coast
investigating the Indians and their customs.
The new monument is seven feet broad by eleven feet high, with a
standard size bronze tablet bearing the following inscription:
"Nootka Sound, discovered by Capt. Cook, in Marcb, 1778. In June.
1789, Spain took possession and established and maintained a settlement
until 1795. The capture of British vessels in 1789 almost led to war, whicli
was avoided by the Nootka Convention, 1790. Vancouver and Quadra met
here in August, 1792, to determine the land to be restored under the convention."
A feature of the entertainment provided those who took part in the unveiling ceremony waa the Indian dancing, arranged by aborigines from
Clayoquot Sound, the Wicaninish of the early navigators' journals.
Tentative plans are afoot for an elaborate pageant to bc held at Friendly
Cove, Nootka Island, in four yeare time to celebrate the ] 50th anniversary
of events commen:oratt J by the unveiling of the cairn.
