Vernon, July 22.—The first official
estimate of tho 1924 apples crop of
the United States, ju>t is-iued by the
department <if agrlcu'ture, Washing-
ton, indicates a total commercial crop
almost us large a* last year and r.inch
above the five average. The figures
given ate us follows:
Harm! 8
Five voar  average, commercial production  27 700,000
1923 commercial   production   31,300,000
1924 commercial produo
tion (estimated)  32,300,000
This estimate is much   larger  than
was anticipated in view of the shorts-
age in the northwestern states, and h
accounted for by a considerab'e in
crease io the eastern states. Gener-1
ally speaking, the east promises a
larger crop than last year. The central part of the country will show n
slight reduction, although some states
n this territory will have a few more
apples than last year. The big reduction is in the northwest. For the
three states of Idaho, Washington
and Oregon the estimate for 1924 is
25,251,000 boxes. These states produced in 1923 27,644,000 boxes.
While no reliable figures are yet
available regarding the crop in eastern Canada, the eastern provinces are
reported to have a good crop. It
would therefore appear that while
there will be a diminished supply of
boxed apples in the market—about 70
per cent of last year—the total supply
of apples seeking a market will be almost as great as in 1923, and much
above the average for the last five
The figures given are not to be
taken as an accura'e forecast Many
things mauy occnt- to increase or de
orease the expected yield, but they
furnish a reasonably sound basis on
which to estimate probable market
We  may   reasonably   expect that
the   short   crop  iu the northwestern
states will prevent any pressure  from
this crop on our prairie  markets, but
on the other hand, with an advantage
of 30 cents per box in freight on supplies given to ihe Ontario shippers by
the  restoration of  the   Crow's Nest
agreement, we must  look  for active
competition   from   the  large eastern
•rop in the Manitoba market.  We can
only meet  this  successfully  by sups-
plying a higher standard of grade and
pack, It: other words,   we n::ust   win
by   quality   competition, and not by
price cutnpetition, in which mio competitors would havo all the advantage
More than ever  we must   watch our
grade and pack and  make  sure   that
nothing goes   to   the mnrket bearing
our brand wh cli will nol justify   out-
claim to superior quality   In this competition the   packing   house   has   as
much to do with success or fni'ui'c as

Mr. Rumberger wan one of the

years before ihe city of Phoenix was
born. At lhat time the mining section in that vicinity waB known as

he said to Betty, the waitress, "Btty,

Betty went to work and quickly

There aro many stories about the
parsimony and uiggardlsness of' Lord

injustice we not know, but eome of
them are in their way amusing.
An Ancient Though Not
Honorable Profession
The diuer, says Punch, having finished his meal and called foj his bill,
studied it with care and apparent
disapproval. "Do you make any reduction to those in the same line of
business?" he asked the waiter.
"Certainly," was the reply. "Are

"No," said the diner sourly, "I'm

When   the   cells   are filied and the

not advisable  to extract honey until
at least three fourths of the cells are
eapped,   especially  in  regions where
rbe honey is   inclined  to   be   rather
thin. Comb honey should be  left   on
the hives until  all    celis   containing
honey are sealed, but should  not be
left on any longer, as the sections are
likely to become travel stained,
The honey should be extracted as
soon as possible after the supers are
removed from the hives, and if done

National Park, is one of the
natural wonders of the entire
Rocky Mountain region. A vast
cleft in the solid rock, reaching a
depth of some 200 feet, and so narrow in places that one may step
across it easily, draws from the
tourist expressions of awe and
wonder at the power of accumulated forces of water.
Tumbling headlong down the
narrow gorge goes the Maligne
River, mysterious as to its source
and for part of its length a subterranean stream, on its way to
join the quieter waters of the
Athabasca far below. At times on
its passage through tbe narrow
gorge, it tumbles more than one
hundred feet in a sheer drop, its
eddies being   churned   to foam as

the rocky sides of the canyon on
their downward leap.
From the footbridges which span
the narrow gash in the solid rock,
tourists watch entranced tho effect of the waters on the rocky
sides. Here and there, seemingly
tired of the effort to stand upright
through the centuries, the sides of
the gorge appear to have leaned
toward one another, until an intervening rock cast itself into the narrow space and held the walls apart.
Trunks of trees and jutting rocks
form footbridges across the chasm
a hundred feet below the tourists'
feet, as they stand admiring the
glint of the noon-day sun upon the
falling water.

Some extravagant statements about the
rapid gain in population that the Unite']
States lias made .since 1920 are discredited by
the figures of the national bureau of economic
research, which estimates the gain since the
last census to be 4,i3IJ0,OOO. The rate seems
to be almost as high as iu the years before the
war. At that rate of growth the population
will be at least 120,030,000 when the next
| census is taken in KKJ0.
In some parts of South America the people
hold a civil engineer in sueh high esteem that
when they call a man a doctor without any

not of medicine, but of engineering.
In Texas a man who is fond of watermelons
began experimenting a few years ago by cross-
polonizing several of his favorite varieties, He
succeeded iu getting one melon that weighed
more than seventy pounds and then, selecting
seed to get still greater size, produced a strain
of truly remarkable proportions. In the last
•four years he has raised melons that have been
larger every year—eighty seven pounds,
ninety three pounds, one hundred and two
pounds and last year one hundred and twenty-
three pounds. The melons of one entire crop
on several acres averaged more than fifty
pounds apiece,

The two newspapers in Kamloops have
amalgamated. A city of 5000 populati u with
only one paper is to be pir'ed. It is as bad off'
as if its stores were limited to one for each
class of class of merchandise, Competition is
the life of trade. It is also the o ily protection
the consumer has against unduly high prices.
There is a teudency among the present generation of newspapermen in this country to do
away with competition and to refrain from
taking a decided stand on political issues, thus
enabling them to feed at theHeshpotsof what
ever party is in power. This course is altogether too mercenary for any respectable
newspaper to follow. They pride themselves
on being independent. But they are not independent; they aie only neutral. This paper
is independent, but it is never neutral. It
realizes that a sane discussion of federal and
proviucial politics, and to enlighten its readers on public affairs generally to the extent
that it is capable of doing, is as much the
function of a newspaper today as it was thirty
years ago.

eelobrated the fiftieth anniversary
of its incorporation. Prom a struggling frontier village of the 70s,
Winnipeg has forged into the position of third laYgest city in the
Dominion, with continental repute
as a railroad centre. It is the Gateway of the West and 100,000,000
bushels of prairie grain pass
through it to the head of the lakes,
whence it goes to the markets of
the world.
Twenty-tfive officers and 200 men
of the Royal Navy, from the special
service squadron headed by H.M.S.
Hood, enjoyed a trip through the
Rockies over the Canadian Pacific
lines while their ships were anchored at Vancouver recently. The
Bailors, who made a point, in true
naval style, of seeing and doing
everything, were enthusiastic ever
thc scenery at such show-places as
Banff and Liake Louise, which they
declare;! the most beautiful they
had seen in all their world cruise.
To add encouragement to the
raWng of high-class swine, which
is being fostered by the governments of Manitoijn, Saskatchewan
an:l Alberta, the Canadian Pa-cific
Railway is award ng a championship cup to the Hoys' and Girls'
Swine Clubs winning the club competitions in these provinces. The
cups are for annual competition,
but will become the property of the
club if won for three years in succession. Medals will be awarded
individual members. This year winning teams resident on the Company's lines will also be granted a
free trip to the Royal stock •bow
at Toronto.
The Arts, Science and Letters Society of the Province of Quebec recently sent a questionnaire to tho
various parishes of Quebec and
Montmorency counties, seeking information as to the age and owe of
fnmilisM residing in thooe territories. It was discovered that tho
family of Ismael Bedard had remained on the same land at Charfes-
bourg since 1*29, that the largest
fpmily in Montmorency wm that of

A signal shows on the switchboard, a
telephone number is asked for, and a wire
highway is created over which two persons may send their words and thoughts,
one to the other. Thousands of these
messages pass over the wires of the B.C.
Telephone Company in a day.
The telephone operator eannot follow
her work to its results, but she can appreciate its importance. In her keeping is
part of a great mechanism of inter communication, but those whom she serves
and the benefits of her service remain unknown/Each summons for her co operation is of equal urgency, foreach helps to
further the progress of the community
and the province.

It is announced -that vigorous
afforts will be made by the Government of Manitoba to effect the
actual settlement of 224,000 acres
M vacant provincial land now under
ue administration of tbe Crown.
For the week ended June 21st
traffic earntng-s of the Canadiaa
Pacific Railway amounted to $3,-
801,000, as compared with $3,159,-
000 for the corresponding period ot
1023. This Is an Increase of $142,-
000 or 4.4 per cent.
Reports from the Rouyn gold
fields of Quebec continue to indicate a great future for that territory. Development is proceeding
apace and the English capital now
flowing into Canada in search of
good investments la tatereatinf itself in this area.
Three carloads of seed grain ara
being shipped weekly from the
provincial seed cleaning and marketing plant at Edmonton, Alta.
About 50,000 bushels of seed grain
have been handled by the plant sinca
last fall and 20,000 bushels mora
will be handled before the year's
seeding is completed.
The Interaational Paper Company
intends ts add two new machines
to their plant in Three Rivers, Que-,
so ai to increase their production
from 800 to 450 tone daily. Another
project is also under consideration,
viz., to build a plant in Batiscan
instead of enlarging the Three
Rivers one.
Out of every dollar the Company
earns, the sum of 81 cents is spent
by the Canadian Pacific "Railway in
the home markets of Canada for
wages, materials, supplies, taxes
and insurance, figures recently issued show. In 1923 the total earnings of this great corporation were
$195,837,089, and every community
in Canada directly benefitted by the
expenditure of 81 ^er cent, of this
huge amount in the home market.
The 1924 cut of the East Kootenay (B.C.) forestry district gives
promise of running to a grand total
af 160,000,000 feet. There ie a
particularly brisk business in poles
of longer len-ji-hs and in railway
ties, and a cut of some 1,000,000
sawn ties and the usual quantity of
the hewn variety is looked for. Sixteen sawmills are now in operation
and indications are that there wil!
probably be thirty going before the
season closes.
Canada now takes third place,
and second place among British possessions, of the gold-producing areas
of the world. The total gold production of bhe world fir 1922—the
latest year for which returns are
available — was 15,440,000 fine
ounces, of which the Transvaal produced 7,020,110, or 46,5 per cent.
The United States came second,
with 2,363,075 ounces, or 15.3 per
cent., and Canada followed, with 1,-
863,364 ounces, or 8.2 per cent.
June 18th was the anniversary of
the running of the first Imperial
Limited, the Canadian Pacific Railway's famous transcontinental. This
was not the Company's first trans-
continc ital, as trains began regular
service between Montreal and Vancouver as far back as 1886, but for
several years it was the crack Canadian Pacific express. To-day the
premier place is held by the Traiw-
Cana-ln Limited, the fastest longdistance express in the world, which
makes the run ia 90 hours, or 10
hours less than the time of tha
original Imperial Limited.
Interviewed in Vancouver as ca
the success of the round-the-world
cruise completed on May 24th by the
"Empress of Canada." E. W. Beatty,
"Tn gauge the success of tha
Empress of Canada's' round-the-
world cruise one has only to ask the
passe:i|rers their opinion of the entire trip. I spoke to several while
crossing from Victoria and without
exception tliey all expressed their
complete satisfaction with the ship,
its officers and the arrangements
made and carried out since the day
she left Vancouver, almost fiva
months ago. i
"That is good enough for me. It
is simple demonstration that tha
Canadian Pacific can successfully
conduct cruiaes in competition with
oiy organization in the world and
maintain that company's standing
as a credit to Canada. The "Empress of Canada" has carried tha
Canadian flag over tha seven seaa
and into most of the world's great
ports, and the missionary work she
has done for Canada in the various
countries touched should not be lost
sight of. As one result of the undoubted success of this cruise, wa
look forward with renewed interest
to the Canadian Pacific cruises of
next season. They include thc West
Indies, the Mediterranean and another round-the-world cruise which
will be made by the "Empress of
France," already overhauled and fitted with a view to providing the
greatest possible comfort for her
passengers. Thc experience gained
this year will greatly help in enabling us to make these cruises even
more successful than those recently
