A dramatic sequel to charges made
in the Duncan report alleging a fruit
oom bine in western Canada, cau*e laat
week,   wben   the   Royal   Canadian
mounted police raided  every  branch
-ofthe Nash Mutual interests through
out the Dominion, aeiied   the  book*
and documents, and  temporarily,  at
least, put a stop to all business.    The
federal      authorities    at    Ottawa,
taking action on tha report for   the
firsr time following  upon the failure
of the provincial governments to   do
so,   set   9 o'clock Tuesday morning,
standarj   time, as gero honr for the
offensive   in   seven   western   cities.
Thus at that time in   Vancouver   a
squad   trom the "Mountie" barracks
and two men from the police barracks
appeared at the office of the Mutual
(Vanoouver) Limited, Water street,
and   commenced   seizing  all papers
they   oould   find.     Other  branches
raided   were  in   Victoria. Calgary,
Moose Jaw. Edmonton aud Wiunipeg.
As far as oan be learned the only re.
sistance offered was at Calgary where
legal proceedings were taken   on   behalf of the Nasb interests and a guard
left  on   thi   books   until the jndge
oould decide if the seizure was   legal,

officers arrived.   He had no  inkling
of   what   was   to take   place.   The
officers   showed   him   their warrant,
authorizing them to seise tlio   books,
and nonsiderinff himself helpless in
the faee of such of procedure, he told
them to go ahead.

Victoria, July 24,—The minister
of lands, Hon. T. D. Pattullo, has
recently taken a trip through the
Cariboo and Lillooet cattlerraising
districts, and on his return stated
that the stockmen of the interior are
practically unanimous in pronouncing
the government's range policy a wise
one. Snme complaints of administration are being looked into by him
since his return,but these are thought
to be largely due to misunderstandings.
It has already been demonstrated,
the minister said, that grazing in
these districts can be made a commer
eial success, and tbat there are several districts to which the same ap
plies. There Is no reason why hun.

A colony of bees may be requeened
by giving it a ripe queen cell or introducing a irgin or laying queen, tbe
latter, however, being tbe better
method. When requeening witb a
cell or virgin, several days of brood
production is .lost to tbe colony and
there is always a danger of the young
queen being lost on her mating flight,
so that the requeening has to be done
the second time. When a laying queen
js introduced, however, no lost time
in brood production occurs, and if
the new queens are reared at home,
one has the opportunity of selecting
the best for introduction to full colonies.
A delegation of prominent newspaper proprietors and journalists

Most men could sing it they

No matter whether cell,  virgin  or
laying queen is used, the colony that
is to be requeened must first be made
queenless and must contain no aotive
queen eells, otherwise tbe new queen
will  be  killed.    It is a good plan to
allow the colony to be   queenlees for
about twolve hours so that  the   bees
fully realize their queenlees condition
before   the   new'one isintrodtced.
New   queens will be accepted   more
readily during a iionoy flow.   When
there is no nectar available the bees
should be fed a thin syrup for a few
days at the time of introduction.
There are many methods of introducing new queens, but most of them
are   not  always reliable,  especially
whon used by a  beginner.    The cage
method is the most reliable and tliere
are   several   ways of introducing by
cages.    Queens purchased from breeders are sent in  mailing cages   which
can also be used as introduction cages
Usually   each   queen is accompanied
with   inttrnutions  for   introduction,
which, if followed carefully,arc fairly
rs liable.    Another successful cage is
the   Miller   candy  cage.  The queen,
whether she comes in a mailing cage or
is   reared  in  the apiary, is placed in
the case with   about   half   a   dozen
young bees from the colohy to   which
xhe is to be introduced.    The cage is
then   either  suspended   between the
top barb of the frames   or   pushed   iu
ut the  entrance and the bees release
her through the candy hole. The best
cage is the combination  push in  and
candy release.    The queen is confined
on the comb beneath the cage and by
the time the bees  releaae her she  is

The inspector of municipalities has made his
yearly   report to the attorney general, dealing
with the position of the organized communities of the province for 1924. Financially those
are in slightly Setter position than tbe year
before, while new borrowings were less.   Tax
arrears continue to show a reduction, testifying to general betterment of conditions.   They
have fallen to one-third of what they were in
1918. On the other hand, the value of lands
which have reverted to the muicipalities for
non payment of taxes has increased to $8,-
468,096    The  inspector  finds   that sinking
funds have improved during the year by  the
process of marking up  their value to par, a
policy by which he can not see that auy good
is accomplished, as it gives a misleading statement ofthe year's business and places a more
or less fictitious   value upon  the assets, he
says.   In regard to municipal assessets the inspector states that these are admittedly  beyond the value of the lands and that in  both
urban and rural municipalities there are adjustments   required.   He   does not see any
justification for this in the argument that if
values were low tax rates would be high. The
insdector continues: "The assessor in returning his roll to the council must furnish a statu-

The Massachusetts Society of Optometrists
recommends tha following simple rules for
guarding the eyes of children: Don't let tbem
read fine print, blurred letters, shiny paper,
nor work facing a bright light. Don't let them
read in dark corners. Don't let them subject
their eyes to unshaded brilliant sources. Don't
let cross-eye go neglected; it may lead to
blindness. The proper reading distance, the
optometrists says, is thirteen to sixteen inches
from the eyes.

The present prospect is for a wheat  crop
very much smaller than that of lastyear. That
is qecause last winter was not a favorable one
for fall-sown wheat. Almost ten million acres
of winter wheat were abandoned.   The spring
wheat is doing well in most quarters, but the
crop reporting board estimates the probable
yield  of both  kinds of wheat at 661,000,000
bushels in the United States, which is no t
much more than the home market will absorb.
Everything depends on the next month, however.    Favorable weather   may considerably
increase the crop; drought or loo much  rain
may cause it to fall below its present estimates
Last year the Stales raised 872,000,000 bushels of wheat. Tbe Canadian crop will almost
surely be 50,000,000 or 60,000,000 bushels
larger than last year.

ib 1924 were $14,537,066 as compared with

In Washington they are discussing with a
good deal of seriousness the idea of reducing
the membership of the house of representatives to about three hundred, and keeping it
there permanently. There has been no reapportionment since the census of 1920, and the
necessity of making one gives the advocates
of a smaller house an opportunity of pressing
their views. Senator Gillett, the former spaker
of the house, always believed that body was
too large to do business properly and was the
author of a bill to limit its membership to
three hundred.

"Boys, look at that ear steaming," remarked the garage owner
to the gang around the stove, pointing out through the window to •

to realize that after a ear has been
standing twenty-four hours ttie oB

"Stop ffgurlng ont other folks'

physician. "Ko doubt we do deserve them, still you can't make

"And that ls how you doctors

snorted tto cattleman.
"Pa, oh pa," chirped up ttie garage owner's youngster, who has
been busily reading the newspaper,

The whoooo of the noon whistle

Comparatively few of the thousands of miles of railroad
in Canada are electrified, but there is no railway
organization which does not rely to a greater or lesser
extent on electricity as an aid to efficient operation and
service. Electricity plays an important part in all of the
great Railroad Shops through the country. Some trains
and cars are operated by power directly transmitted or
stored in batteries. Bridges are operated, and a thousand
and one electrical devices are in constant use which
beside being labor saving do away with the human element which might make for inefficiency. Numbered
among these are the automatic Block Signals which one
finds distributed along the line of tlie Canadian Pacific,
and notices particularly in the Rocky Mountain passes
where they are more urgently required.
' To the average layman an automatic signal is just a
signal, and the general public is only interested in it
because it gives added protection, or rather eliminates
possible danger from the portion of track which it governs.
to the railroad official it is more. It acts as watchman
against broken rails, open switches, a fouled track or any
other obstruction. Through a circuit in the rail this is
accomplished, and if the circuit be broken, for the reason
that another train is occupying the block, or that there Is
an open switch, a broken rail, washout or other obstruction, then the train approaching the signal may not pass.
And while it awaits a through signal, trains following in
the rear may not approach for the reason that they are
also stopped by an automatic signal which will "not
release them until the preceding train has passed from
that section of the track which they desire to enter.
A perfect Bystem. No electrical circuit — no through
signal — no train may pass.
The value of this system in the Rockies can hardly
be ovar-estimated. Not only is labor saved, but thi
company is nble *o ensure absolute protection.

Here Is what the "Motor News" says about it: "This wonderful highway,
wide and smooth and hard and level as any the old RomBns or the modern
Americans ever built, is in the Canadian Rockies. For 114 miles it twines
its tortuous way through unbelievably magnificent mountain scenery, from
Banff, tha world-famous resort in Alberta, to Lake Windermere, in British
Columbia, clinging to the brim of sheer precipices, cleaving through shear
canyons, skirting giant mountains, spanning giant rivers, overlooking giant.
