Canadian Pacific Directors on Annual Tour

ultimate object the securing of a

tbe safe wintering ovei of tbe colony.
Tbe first step in preparing bees for
the winter is also the first of the
beekeeper's year as well as bis first
step towards securing next season's
crop. About tbe middle of July
preparations are commenced by seeing tbat each colony is beaded by a
vigorous queen in order tbat tbe
maximum number of young bees
may be reared to carry tbe colony
through tbe winter. Sbould the fall
flow be insufficient to cause a large
amount of brood to be reared, stimulative feeding will have to be re<
sorted to; tbat is, 1 part of sugar to
i part of water, or dilute honey mix
ture must be fed. Colonies tbat are
weak, those covering less than six
fram.-s, should be united This may
be done by tbe newspaper method;
or two weak colonies may be
brought together and wintered in
one hive if itis divided by a close
fitting division board This latter
method provides the beekeeper witb
surplus queene early the following
Having secured a large force of
young bees, the next step is lo eee
that each colony has sufficient
stores to not only carry it through
tbe winter but also tbrough tbe
early spring till pollen and nectar
are coming in, thus enabling it to
build up rapidly. The stores provided sbould be of the best; no unwholesome honey containing a higb
percentage of solid matter sbould
be given. If natural stores are d>
ficient, a syrup of two parts of the
best granulated sugar to one part
water should be fed. Tbis being last
stored will be the first consumed
and, as it breaks down into gas and
water, will defer solid matter accu

sixty pounds without their covers,

Protection from the cold is very
necessary, as it not only retards the

Colonies wintered outside should

this fall before tbe legislature opens

Literary art is seldom employed in
the composition of telegrams. But a
writer in the London Express knows
of a man who does aim at elegance in
his telegraphic style, though with anx
otber purpose than the gjatification
of his own taste.
When the man is in the country,
says the Express, he writes beautiful
telegrams to his aunts in town on the
least provocation. Here is a typical

Phonk 101B Graud Forks, B. c;
The following letter was handed '"he editor
the other day, with the request that The .Su n
"boost" for the project it outlines:
"The 'Proviuce' of September 8 shows in
splendidly concise style, thanks to the Prince -
ton board of trade, just what British Columbia requires in highway connections. But the
mere connections in gravel are not enough.
Right now is the time to advocate a Cost-
Kootenay high-speed, water-grade concrete
highway, beeause:
"(1) British Columbia has the finest collection of scenery in America, bar none. Bnt
very few see it, although several million auto
tourists are anxious to spend money looking
at it.
"(2) The major portion of tourists positively will not leave concrete roads to spend
their millions, because dust, gravel and slow
going can not compete with water-grade concrete roads and smooth travel as now found
on Pacific avenue, Vancouver to Mexico.
. "(3) The Coast-Kootenay concrete highway, if completed by 1925, would handle yearly one million tourists, spending fifty million
dollars in British Columbia.
"(4) Okanagan, Kettle valley and Kootenay
farmers could sell their products in Vancouver, as each could have an independent direct
service transport system. Vancouver could
then use the (arm produce of British Columbia instead of importing. Every farm in the
interior cculd produce at its maximum—certain, too, of a ready market.
"(5) Tha 24-foot concrete road, with 8-foot
asphalt safety band in center, would cost $18,-
000,000, but could be paid for at the rate of
$3,000,000 yearly by a 3 cent tax on gasoline,
not to mention the millions in addod prosperity to British Columbia.
"(0) Every city on the Coast-Kontenay
highway would have to bo prepared to cater
to 3000 auto tourists daily,
"(7) The tourists made southern California
and the millions of auto tourists on the Coast-
Kootenay concrete highway would recompense
British Columbia beyond the dreams of
"Ultimately the Coast-Kootcnav concrete
highway will be built. It must be. Then why
not next year, so that we in British Columbia may reap prosperity the sooner?"
That is a very beautiful picture—almost as
beautiful as the Reds paint soviet Russia.
But we are still undecided whether the request for our advocacy of the project was
based on a polite invitation that wo abandon
sane reasoning or that wo use our best judgment. IC tbe latter supposition is the case,
our "boosting" will necessarily be tempered
by existing conditions in this province.
In all probability the sum named above
would not come anywhere near constructing
a high-speed, water grade concrete Coast-
Kootenay highway. It is more likely that the
building of such a highway at present would
bankrupt the province. However, most people
consider it to be of vastly more importance
that tha farmers and new settlers should be
provided with adequate transportation facilities, ln the final analysis of prosperity it
will be found that it is brought on by the citizens who live in the country and improve the
land and develop its resources rather than by
tho pleasure seekers.
their indolence and sit down and wait long
enough some one will come along and hand
them a bag of gold. A certain section of the
city and country press is responsible for this
lack of thrift. A few years a ago the Panama
canal would, on its completion, enrich every
man,-woman and child in this orov'nee. All
the people would have to do would be to go out
and gather in the gold dollars scattered broad
cast through the province. The canal has
been finished manyfyears and the thriftless are
still poor. Now the opulent tourists and the"
penniless immigrants are due to work a
miracle in British Columbia. Tbe tourist will
come and buy a few meals and spend a few
dollars, but the man who is sitting still and
waiting for prosperity to arrive will get aone
of them. The immigrant will also come. If
ho knows enough about the land to farm
with an agricultural teacher, and is not too
pompous to work, he will iu time succeed and
become prosperous. But the man who is looking prosperity now will be looking for peos-
perity then.
Notes, Notions and Notables
"Farming is the safest and sanest occupation in the world," says the Edmonton Bulletin. "It is the fountain of all other business
enterprise in the country. If it were uot normally profitable the wheels of trade would
long ago have have stopped over the western
region; alike the farms and towns would have
been 'sold up' by the sheriff, and the prairie
would again be the 'great lone land.' While
some have failed, thousands have succeeded,
and in the long run the prairie farm has
proven to be a solid foundatiou for the fortune
of the man who tills it and for the business of
the country which depends upon it. It is time
to bring this incontrovertible evidence into
prominence and to keep it prominent alike at
home and abroad."
Gasoline prices are on the down-grade. By
the time the prospective local dl magnates get
their well in good working condition it may
be as difficult to market a gallon of gasoline
as it now is to dispose of a box of apples.
Apparently there is no royal road to fortune.

light looking toward a solution of the reparations controvejsy, but the problem must be

a narrow escape from death
by   choking on Wednosday.

4. Try to help instead of hinder
tbe traffic officer; be is there for

5. Be sure that your "dimmers"
really dim; it's no joke driving into
a blinding glare, as you probably
6. Read and obey tbe warning
signs; tbey are not put. up as ornaments.
7. If you feel you've got to speed
—do it where it won't kill anybody
but yourself.
8. Wben making minor repairs,
stop where your car may be seen
from both direotions; otherwise you
may atop longer than you anticipate.
9. Speeding around corners is a
straight route to the hospital. Don't
race past a stopped street car. Some
day the jury will call it manslaughn
10. Use discretion. The fact tnat
you had the right of way won't
bring anybody back to life, least of

Plaoer mining in Mongolia is i
primitive process compared even with
the American pioneer method of wash

so Dr. Ferdinand Ossendowski tells
us iu his book Beasts, Men and Gods
—lies flat on the ground, brushes the
sand aside with a feather and keeps
blowing into the little excavation so
formed.   From   time to time he wets
his flnger and, picking upon it a small
bit of grain gold or a diminutive Dug

under his chin. In that way he collects adout a quarter of an ounce, or
Ave dollars' worth of gold a day.
Ten Commandments
For the Motorist
The ten commandments of good
driviog are as follows:
1. Drive on the right side of tbe
road: it is just as good as the left.
2 Slow down when approaching
a crossroad; it is nearly as dangerous as a railroad crossing.
3 Look out for children. You
can never tell wbat tbey will do,and
you are always in the wrong if you
bit one,
In the mountains of the South
there are men who, though illiterate, have answered tbe call to the
ministry. Naturally,they are handicapped, for they mnst depend on
others to read the Bible to them.
But unfortunately—so we learn
from Mrs. Cora Wilson Stewart in
Moonlight Schools—some of the
pupils tbat the day schools turn out
are as poor readers as those who
never went to school.
"Paul was an oyster man," one of
them once read to an illiterate minister—meaning of course "an austere
man." The next Sunday the preacher declared to bis congregation that
Peter was a fisherman and that Paul
was an oyster man. Thus his flock
got a conception of Paul that probably wasjunique.

TheOhjocts of this Imtitution, for which Incorporation waa reoently obtained, are! "To provide a Home and Itefus-e for Baby and Infant Blind; to
provide freo Suioiitifiu Care, [-raining and Maintenance; to Save the Lives of
even a few of the inany of hujIi vrsfortunates, who, for the lack of such service, perish every year; and to return these little ones to their parents, at
sohool age with normal, healthy bodies and sound minds."
This is a large and graatly needed Child Welfare Service. Careful enquiry
at the Government offices in the verious provinces reveals the faot that there
are at the prosant time nearly '250 Infant Blind in the Dominion. Nothing
haa yet been done for those helpless little ones. In the United States, 16
years ago, the first home waa opened in New York City; they have now homes
in 13 States, all doing excellent work. In England, some time ago, Sir Arthur Pearson organized "Sunshine House," Chorley Wood, for Blind Babies,
aod he claims that it is the only one in the British Empire. Let us have the
SECOND in Canada. To reaoh this worthy end money is urgently required
Fifty Thousand Dollars is the present objective of the Boaad. While the
Home is to be located in Ottawa it will take in the Baby Blind from every
provinco, so that this APPEAL for funds will be Dominion wide, and an
early and generous rosponse is confidently expected. Cheques should be made
payable to the Canadian Blind Babies Home Association. All remittances
will be promptly acknowledged.
