MARKETING OF
CANADIAN FRUITS
During the winter of 1924-2.-)
considerable alarm was expressed at
tbe annual meetings of tbe fruit
growers' associations throughout tbe
Dominion at tbe rapidly decreasing
Canadian per capita consumption of
f.uits of a kind produced in the Dominion ond tbe corresponding in»
crease in tbe consumption of imported fruit. One of the means
suggested to overcome tbese conditions was the inauguration of a national advertising campaign stressing tbe value of Canadian grown
fruits with a vitwof increasing tbe
consumption. Tbe Canadian Horticultural Council took lbe matter gup
and the committee appointed by it
placed (he campaign in the hands
of A McKim, Ltd., as advertising
agents The committee appointed by
shippers gave instructions concern
iog the kinds of fruit and t e dates
to be advertised, while the jobbers
named the mediums through which
ihe advertising appeared. Several
advertisements were run for ep.ch
fruit at psychological dates and a
total ol $5610 was collected aud expended. A coupon was used as a
part of each advertisement, offering
to supply free upon request a copy
of a booklet prepared by the fruit
branch, Dominion department of
agriculture, entitled "Fruits and
Vtgelabjes: Canning, Dijing and
Storiug " Sixteen thousand Bix hun
dred and twenty eight individual
applications were received for the
booklet, and this in itself is suffic-
ient evidence that the Canadian
public were anxious to secure information concerning the methods
of preparing Canadian fruits for
winter use. The advertising of apples consisted chiefly of tbe observ-
ence of a national epple week from
October 31 to November 6, inclusive
All sections of the apple producing
and distributing territory in Canada
contributed, both financially and
morally, to the campaign. Only
now, when the national apple week
of 1925 ia but a pleasant memory,
can we appreciate the wonderful
Cinadian appetite for apples, whicb
we bave ignored, overlooked and
neglected during our search for
markets abroad If the demand
cun be taken as a criterion oi the
capacity of C nada to. absorb this
fruit we are not producing much
more than sufficient for home con
sumption Almost one hundred ser
vice clubs—Rotary, Kiwanis, Lions,
One Hundred, Gyros and Commeri-
cial—comprising thousands of outstanding busine s and professional
men, paid homage to King Apple at
tbeir luncheons durings duiing apple week Practically every radio
iu Canada assisted in spreading the
health gospel of the apple, columns
ot apple publicity appeared in the
Canadian press. Along the whole
eystem of the Canadian Pacific rail,
way apples were extensively featured
on a specially prepared apple week
menu in its dining cars, botel and
lunch rooms. Window dressing
competitions were featured and were
enthusiastically supported in many
centers. Advertising is a form of
education—education creates knowledge and knowledge creates desire
and desire creates demand, wbich is
tbe deteiminirg factor in tbe buck
cessful distribution and sale of any
commodity.    Consequently the best
answer to tbe question of bow to
increase fruit consumption is—ad
vertise, because it does pay to herald
your products from the housetops.—
C E Mcintosh, Dominion Fruit
Commissioner, at convention of British Columbia Fruit Growers' Asso
ciaiton.
ENJOYING HIS FIRST COON COAT
LORD WILLINGDON, prominent British statesman, who has
been mentioned as a possible
successor .to Lord Byng- as Governor-General of Canada, is now in
the Dominion on his way to China
on a mission for the British Foreign Office in connection with the
Boxer indemnity. Lord Willingdon
is seen here in a coon coat which he
secured in Montreal and which he
is thoroughly enjoying during his
trip across Canada by Canadian
National Railways in coinpany
with Lady Willmgdon.
During their visit to the Dominion, Lord and Lady Willingdon are
being entertained by the Governor-
General and the Lieutenant-Governors of Ontario antl Manitoba,
spending a day In Winnipeg, and a
aWt tits* in Vancouver and Vic
toria before sailing for the Orient.
They are accompanied on the rail
journey by Mr. C. K. Howard, Canadian National general tourist
agent.
Lord Willingdon, who is Lord-in-
Waiting to His Majesty King
George, and whoso home is at Hastings, England, has been Governor
of Bombay and Madras. He was
largely responsible for the return
of the escutcheon of the City of
Quebec from the City of Hastings.
This escutcheon, which was removed at the time of the British
conquest of Canada, was held until
last fall by Hastings, when,
throng* tho efforts of Lord Wil-
Ifngd-on and Hon. P. C. Larkta,
Canadian High Commissioner in
Loudon, it wan returned to Quebec

"A pretty girl passed, and

" 'How lucky it's only my

The centenary of the discovery of the condition known as Bright's disease was recently
cele rated at Gay's hospital, where, a hundred years ago, Dr. Robert Bright made the
definite statement that in his opinion a sailor
admitted to the hospital complaining of
dropsy, and of a large and inflamed heart,
owed his condition to disease of the kidneys.
Bright's name ranks today among the half
dozen greatest of English physicians. Before
him the symptoms of the disease with which
he will always be associated had been observed again and again, but they had been
correlated by no one with damage to the kidneys. His history was peculiar and significant
of the spirit which makes for kiscovery. H e
started his career by studying arts in Edinburgh, and then embarked upon medicine,
interrupting his course to visit Iceland^and to
write extensively upon its botany and zoology.
for all the purposes for which we now make
use of iron. At the time of the Trojan war
iron was very little used; copper supplied its
place.
Prof. W. D. MacMillan of the University
of Chicago predicts, upon the basis of new
mathematical studies, that the ultimate fate
of the solar system of which the earth is a
part, is that it will become two stars; one of
them the s\in, and the other a uew star made
up of all the planets, with Jupiter as a fathering point. It will probably be some 500,000,-
000,000 years, however, before Jupiter becomes . star and swallows the earth in the
precess, he says. Prof. MacMillan explaius
in his paper that planets are actually growing,
very slowly of course, antl that they are
sweeping up the cosmic dust of nebulosity
throughout space, increasing in size somewhat
on the principle of the snowball, and when
the planets sweep in enough matter the others
will be gathered in by the law of gravitation.
Wildebeeste, or blue gnu, are among tho
most curions looking beasts in creation, writes
O. Lestock Reid, F.R.G.S., in a London
paper. The late Capt. Selous, the famous big
,-ame hunter, described them as having the
• lead of a buffalo, ihe tail of a horse and the
hoofs of au antelope; and, he might have
n lded, the solemnity of an owl, the nose of a
ii'oman and the beard of a goat—an ensemble
•vhich, coupled with an elephantine skittish-
11088, gives a remarkably foolish effect.

It is said thatseveral varities of apples are
indigenous to England, but those in general
use have been brought at various times from
continental Europe. Richard Harris, fruiterer
to King Henry VIII, 1500 to 1547, plauted a
great ma y apple trees and seeds in the
orchards of Kent.
Nowadays, we have no doubt whatsoever
regarding the ability of birds to undertake
long journeys. One would think that our
feathered friends would be unenterprising not
to avail themselves of their unsurpassed powers of locomotion for seeing the world I But
scientifically we must interpret the great
principles of bird migration otherwise. There
is reason to believe that birds, as they arose
from their reptilianlike ancestry, were for the
most part limited ii their wing power. Indeed,
it is surmised that the ostrich and other
flightless forms are survivors of the ancestral
avian types. Birds were, therefore, not in the
first place endowed with powerful flight to
enable them to trip hither and thither for
mere amusement or change of scene! Migra
tion is far from being the enviable gift of na
ture oft sung by the poets. It is fraught with
grave dangers, betimes the scene of tragedy
with a heavy casualty list. Migration, like
every other great biological activityy, is th e
product of evolution.

The apple crop in the Okanagan
Valley, British Columhia, this year
is estimated at 2,300,000 boxes. At
a fair estimate of a dollar and a half
a box, the return to growers in tills
district will be approximately four
million dollara.
The Eastern International Dog
Derby will be run at Quebec on February 18, 19 and 20. The course
provides for a distance of 46 miles

Other competitors will be awarded
prizes aggregating $2,200.
Immigration to Canada for the
aix months from April 1 to September 30, 1925 totalled 67,086. Of
thia number 25,072 were from Great
Britain and Ireland, 11,199 from thc
United States and 20,815 from other
countries. In the same period 18,-
282 Canadians returned from the
United States.
Nicotine is a colorless, intensely poisonous
lit'uid. If exposed to the air it absorbs oxy-
ge.i and becomes brown and ultimately solid.
The quantity of nicotine contained in tobacco
varies from 2 to 8 per cent, the coarser kinds
containing the larger quantity, while the best
Havana cigars seldom contain more than 2
p u* cent, and often less. Nicotine does not
a ip-jar in tobacco smoke. It is split into
pyridine and collodine. Of tbese, the latter is
said to be the less active and to preponderate
in cigar smoke, while the smoke from pipes
c i ttains a larger amount of pyridine.
The precocious infant was being submitted
to the psychological tests in order to deter-
mine-the degree of his genius. He had already
puked out numbers, arranged blocks and dis-
ti ignished colors. Then came the supreme test,
the identification of various coins. The investigator tossed a nickel on the floor. Tho pre-
c icious infant bent over it while the proud
parents held their breath. Then the preco
cioua infant winked at his dad and cried ex
ultantly, "Head::!"
Contentment
Contentment's realm no fears invade,
No cares annoy, no sorrows shade,
There plac'd secure, in peace we rest,
Nor aanght demand to make us blest.
While pleasure's gay fantastic bower,
The splendid pageant of an hour,
Like yonder meteor in the skies,
Flit swith a breath no more to rise
As thro' life's various walks we're led,
May prudence hover o'er our head!
May she our words, our actions guide,
Our faults correct, our secrets hide)
May she, where'er our footsteps stray,
Direct our paths, and clear our way!
Till, every scene of tnmult past,
She bring us repose at last,
Teach us to love that peaceful shore,
And roam thro' folly's wilds no morel

A recent epidemic of motor accidents, five of which occurred in ons
night, though luckily none of them
proved to be fatal, elicited the following editorial comment from the
Montreal Star. "That five drivers
of automobiles should drive their
cars into moving trains within a
period of twenty-four hours in
Canada would seem to indicate that
carelessness is the main cause oi
accidents. The location of level
crossings is either well-known oi
clearly indicated at a distance that
gives even a fast driver ample time
to step. At many such crossing!
boHs automatically ring as trains
are approaching. At others, bar
gates are let down. Some are open
—these almost entirely in the country districts. But despite all
safeguards, warnings, signals, and
precautions, accidents continue to
happen at level crossings with an
alarming consistency. In some incidents, indeed, it almost looks at
though the drivers were determined
to defy all attempts to ensure
caution." The paper calls for cancellation of driving license in casei
like the above.      ****

Changed Methods in Handling Milk
B*-s<rsT proper sanitary measures sre
neglected the bacteria in a drop of
milk look like this.
How much do the farmers and
dairymen of the United Stales pay
in toll to bacteria in milk? in process of arriving at the answer to
(.his question, representative.-* of leading milk anil dairy products companies of New York recently mot
with officials of the sinte Agricultural Experiment Station, with the
Department of Farms und Markets
and the College of Agriculture al
the Experiment Station, Geneva.
The bacterial count is beinir used
moro and more as a basis for determining how much per pound a
farmer Is to bo paid lor his milk
Oetting the bacterial count under a
given figure means millions of dollars annually to Uncle Ham's dairymen. Dairymen, themselves, are
alive to this question, and where the
milk produced ls a material part of
the Utconue from the f.'irn*, complete sanitary precautions are balllg
taken to Insure a low bacterial count
In the milk.      ,
Precautions atari at tho beginning
of milk production and continue
clear through until the time the milk
Is ln the hands of tlio consumer.
To begin with, properly ventilated,
easily cleaned stables are provided;
plenty of bedding Is given the cowo;
platforms are built the right length to
accommodate the particular breed of
cows that, are kept; thc gutter is built
wide and doer: the animal is clipped
about tha udder and flanks pcrlod-
ll'here sanitary precautions ari t**m
there aro. few harmful hacteri* in milk.
The white specks are bacteria.
Ically. The cows are groomed carefully every day and just before milking, loose particles of dirt are brushed
off, or, wheu the cow ls clipped,
wiped off with a damp cloth. Small
top :nill* palls are used to receive
milk from the cows, Utensils such as
milk palls, milk cans, milking machines .md separator!), are thoroughly
sterilized after eacli milking.
The fresh-drawn milk ls Immediately removed to the cooling tank
whore II is cooled to a temperature
of 60 degrees to CO degrees Fahrenheit.
' In receipt at the dairy, the creamery or the oondonsery, the same extreme sanitary precautions prevail.
White garbed workers who have
passed medical Inspection, who ob-
BOl-ve rules of personal cleanliness
as well us hyfflont* in the handling
of milk and milk produota, go about
tlu-lr duties offlclonUy und intelligently. Immediately after the pasteurizing of whole milk, it la bollled
and capped. The dato of bottling Is
stamped on the cap and the milk ls
usually sold before 38 hours have
elapsed since pasteurizing,        ,
What a dlffercm o over tho old-
tlmo methods of handling milk!
It in these changed methods in
the handling of the nation's milk
supply lhat has swelled the individual consumption of milk to mo**
than 64 gallons per year.
