Canada's largest m'iskrat ranch
is now being established at Swan
Lake, about 40 miles west of Quesnel in central British Columbia*'
There are about 4,000 niuskrats on
the farm now and it is estimated
that the ranch .will eventually have
an annual output of 60,000 pelts.

The shipment of Canadian applet
to England and to many centres on
the Continent is expected to ba
heavier this year than ever experienced, according to J. R. Martin,
manager of the foreign freight department of the Canadian Pacific
Expreat Company. About three
years ago the practice of sending
Canadian apples to the Old Country
as Christmas gifts became popular,
and ths} shipment each year have
correspondingly increased.
Facilities at the Eastern Public
Cattle Market in Montreal have
been augmented by the addition of
a new export cattle building, which
was opened recently. This new
building is considered one of the
finest of its kind on the continent
and has accommodation for 60 carloads of cattle. By the arrangements of 26 cattle chutes on each
side of the main alley-way, a train
of 26 cars can be unloaded at each
side of the building.

Miles and Smiles
BY   ERWIN   GRBER
The man who can not afford a
chaffeur envies the man 'who has ono
—mere because of the slick appearance and mechanical excellence of
the car than for any other reason.
But the chau eur holdB his job by
keeping his cars Well groomed. Then
why not do the same with your chauf
feurless car—it will reply with smiles
full of miles.
Cleaning --park plugs is a long,
dirty and monotonous job If you attempt to do all four, six, eight or
twelve at the one time, iou spend
Wmie laaklng for the proper wrenches
and because yon have no gloves In
yaur equipment, you spend the rest
of the day trying to clean the carbon
off your hands. (But when things
are handy you can clean one or two
plugs while waiting for somo one to
do an errand.
If a little of the system, people-Use
in tlieir business would be applied to
the running of their cars there would
be   far less need for repair shops or
tbe laying off of machines when their
services   are   needed   most.   Because
one car owner of my   acquaintance
failed   to keep a record of the parts I
of the car he greased and the   mileage he over-oiled  the generator and
the started  motor and  overlooked a I
univertsaljoint entirely.   He lost two!
days' use of the car while the service
Station   was   making amends for his j
mistake.
One of the most important things
in managing a car is to keep account
of all supplies bought for the car, together with the date and mileage
reading of the speedometer when
purchases are made. This tells you
right off the reel how long it has
been since you last changed the oil
in the crankcase and wuat milt-age
the car Is giving to the gallon of
gas. The advantages of knowing tho
former are that it keeps from going
often, and forstalls the possibility
of burning a bearing as a result of
running the car for too long a period
on one filling of lubricant
To be able successfully to utilize
the spare moments which constantly
present ehemselves it is of utmost
importance to carry all accessories
to the cleaning and adjusting process
along with you, and also* to keep
them conveniently located. The fact
tbat the screwdriver ls under the
seat cushion may be < the cause ot
your   deciding
enough to tighten the screws which
hold the license plates in place.
And so, when later ithe screws come
loose and a plate falls o , yau are
put to fifty times the Inconvenience
of raising the seat cushion.
STORAQE  OF FIELD  ROOT8
The late., fall months frequently
find the grower -vith a supply of
field roott on hit handt, but no satisfactory place to store them. Under such conditions the surplus of
roots can be taken care of to good
advantage by the ute of a properly
constructed   pit.
A satisfactory root pit can be constructed in the following manner:
Select a well drained location, preferably where the soil is light.. The
next step is to dig a shallow trench
about six inches deep, not over four
to five feet deep, and as long ao
necessary to accommodate the roots
that require storage. In this trench
the roots should be carefully piled
in such a manner tbat the finished
pile will narrow off to a few inches
at the top, at a height' of three to
three to four feet. At Intervals of
approximately five feet, ventilators
should be built into the pile of roots,
extending to the bottom of the pile.
These veuailators are easily constructed by using two six-inch
boards, to the aide of wbich skits six
or seven Inohes In length and of con-
venien t width can be nailed so that
the openingB on either siue of the
venailators will be alternated. The
resulting venailator will be approximately six Inches square, inside
measuremenas.
The first covering to be placed on
the roots is a foot of straw, and lf
the weather is mild at the time of
pitting, no other covering need he
put on for a few days. After that
time the Btraw should be covered by
about six inches of the surrounding
soil. When this outer layer of soil
has become frozen quite solidly but
not entirely through, a second foot
of straw should be put on and over
this a second six-Inch layer of soil.
iSpreading a little immure around
the pit otter putting on the first layer
of soil will keep that section of earth
free from frost and mlake shovelling
easy when the weather has become
cold enough to make lt necessary to
put on the second loyer.
Such a pit properly constructed
will keep field roots satisfactorily
over winter at a very small cost.
Mr. Boom and Mr. Steddy were
business enemies, but chance or fate,
call it w-hat you will, had placed them
on the same board of directors.
One day, after an important meeting, Mr. Boom   was holding forth.
"There are hundreds of ways of
making ; mloney," he said provocatively.
"Yes,"1 put in Mr. Steddy, "but only
ono honest way."
"What way's    that?"   asked    Mr.
that there IsnTtime B*?00} ,?*-arp,*-*\   ,    „.    -_,„„

P. B. Freeland, governmlent mining
engineer, examined the Beaver claim
at Beaverdell laat week.

A Record Fish and Story
According to the western farmer
a feature of the present year's harvest was the use of "combines"—
the combine reaper nnd thresher
now being made by several implement manufacturers in this country.
One farmer using this outfit claims
to have covered from 36 to 60 acres
per day at a cost of 46 cents an
acre. He says that they save the
cost of twine and about nine-tenths
of the labor of harves'ing. The Implements cost about $'3,000.
A preliminary conference, the results of which may he of the utmost
importance to the Maritime Provinces, was held in the Eiafd Room
of the Canadian Pacific Railway at

FROSTS CAUSE A
LOSS Of 10,000
CARS OF APPLES
Like last week, the record of the
sties for the week ending Novembea
13 Is disheartening, says Zion's
Weekly Review, published in New
Y-j**k. All varieties are Bold low,
Jonathan because of the ripe condition of most of the fruit, suffered
more than other varieties, but no
variety sold high enough to plovlde
anything but substantial losses to
the owners. At the closing sales
the range for Extra Fancy Jonathans was about %SM to $1.50, Fancy
$1.00 to $1.25. The average for Extras at Friday's sale was $1.28, Fancy
$1.25. Spitzenbergs, Extras, -si.45 to
$2.15. Average $1.92. Fancy $1.25
to $2.05. Average $1.62. Comibina-
tion averaged $1.83 and Hall Special
$1.57. Homes, Extras, $1.15 to $1.65
Average $1.40. Fancy $1.00 to $1.40.
Average $1.14. The offerings of Delicious at Friday's sale were small
and not representative. At Thursday's Extra Fancy at about $2.00 to
$2.85, averaging $2.29. Fancy generally $1.60 to $2.00. A few up to
$2.45. Average $1.86. Such Wine-
saps as have appeared in the sales,
have not met with a favorable reception. A car of Extras, groni, Cong-
don, in yesterday's Bales averaged
only $1.48, and a car of Fancy from
Marble made (an average ot $1.32.
Montana Mcintosh have sold better
than other varieties, but the prices
were far from satisfactory. Thursday's sale Combination, Extra Fancy
and Fancy sold at s range of $1.55 to
$2.80. Average $2.34. Fancy $1.75
to $2.26. Fancy $1.75 to $2.80. Average $2.34. C grade $1.10 to $2.30.
Average $1.63.
Total sales: Auction 188 cars.
Private 42 cars.
There was practically no f.o.b.
trading.
An interesting report upon the effects of the freezing temperatures experienced in the northwest box apple
districts from September 23 to September 26 has just been, received
from H. L. Helllwell of the Wenat-
chee-Beebe Orchard company.
Mr. Helllwell having nad exceptional opportunities for ooscrvation
und study of the condition of the
orchards, his conclusions merit, careful consideration. He personally
covered a large part of the Wenatehee valley, consulted and conferred
with many growers and shipping
organizations and checked up with
the Wenatehee district horticultural
inspector. As a result ot bis researches, he estimates tho loss to be
as follows: Jonathans 5 per cent,
Delicious 5 per cent, Spitzenberg 15
per cent, Winesaps 20 per cent,Rome
Beauty 25 to 35 per cent, Stayman
40 to 60 per cent.
The loss as officially announced is
3627 cars, or about 20 per cent of the
estimated yield foo the vally
Based on theBe facts, the government authorities estimate the minimum loss at 8000 cars, with an intimation that this figure will be increased when all the facts are known
Mr. Helliwell states that the drop
was only one of the effects of the low
tern peratures. Haste to pick the
fruit to prevent additional losses from
further dropping, resulted in stacking
up large quantities in the orchards to
ibe run through the graders later. As
a consequence, much of the fruit became mature and hnd to bo shipped
to be sold for what lt would bring,
lie estimates tbat the loss in the entire northwest box territory due to
overrlpeness and hasty shipping,
when ad detldhe loss from dropping,
will  approximate 10,000 cars.
Venturing no prognostications as
to the future of tho market, 'Mr.llolli-
wlell submits the results of his researches without comment, leaving
It to Uie iiidivlduu 1 to interpret the
figures as he will.

WE. Kidder of Kalamazoo, Mi-
• chigad arrived in Montreal
over Canadian Pacifie Railway lines,
recently with the best "fish" story
of the year. It was a pretty good
story, and we had to believe him,
especially when he showed us a forty-
pound salmon packed away in ice in
the observation car.
Now, Mr. Kidder is a pretty good
fisherman, but he says thatthe experience he had while fishing in Cains
River, New Brunswick is absolutely
unique, and that as far as he knows
he was successful in hooking what is
probably a record salmon with a
trout rod and fly. •
"This fish is unquestionably the
largest -hook bill, I have ever seen,"
■aid   Mr,   Kidder, "and the same
...   expressed   by   ..
wardens who viewed the fish in the
game
live box. But the really great point
was the terrific fight that this fish
put up. This was so spectacular and
so fast and furious, accompanied by
rush after rush of 160 to 200 feet, that
we had no time to take a picture of it.
"My canoe man and myself were
busy every second of the time from
twenty minutes past four until after
dark. In fact up to the last few
minutes of the fight I stood with one.
foot in the bow ofthe canoe constantly, when I was not in the canoe and
chasing the fish back and forth across
the stream. •
"This fish was forty-five and three-
fourths inches long measured in a
straight line. If measured around the
contour of the body it would probably show t«o or three inches longer
than this. Theue measurements were
taken after he had been fighting the
wires of the live box for five or sis
days, in which he undoubtedly lost a
great deal of weight. Perhaps if he
had been measured when first taken
from the water he would have been
at .least two inches more. •
"However, no matter how you
look at it, he wag big enough to suit
me, and the fact that it wat a 'hook
bill* and 'leaping fish' instead of a
female or 'sulkef' gave me that
much more satisfaction. Then, too,
it was taken with a No. 12 fly, which
ie very much smaller than is commonly used for six inch trout. The
rod weighed only four and seven-
eighths ounces, and the ordinary
trout leader, with a three pound
breaking strength was not much
heavier than is commonly used for a
small trout fly."

FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 26, 1926
Although still a number of organized communities in British Columbia bave not signified their intention of entering into an  agreement  with  the superintendent  of provincial
police for the policing of their municipalities,
reports peaching the department of the attorney-general indicate that the new arrangement
is working very satisfactorily in such  cities as
Rossland, Prince George, Prince Rupert, Nanaimo,  Duncan  and  so  on.    It is especially
appreciated, moreover, in the case of the cities
and larger municipalities becanse it is  effecting quite a saving to the civic taxpayers without imposing any additional burden upon  the
provincial exchequer.   It  is  to be noted that
the department has not pressed  any  municipality to take the advantage which the amend
ment to the provincial  police  act?-*--passed  in
1924—present to it in this connection.   In  all
cases  where an agreement bas been entered
into the initiative has been taken by the  mu
nicipal cnhcjl.s concerned.    Incidental ly, after
six months' experienoe of the British  Columbia police in one municipality, i he couucil submitted a  plebiscite  to  the electorate as  to
whether or not it approved of i he change. Tha
result was a two to on3 endorsement of the
policy followed.    Some time ago, morever, the
attorney gmsra! pointed ont that the taxpayers of the province could save almost one million dollars a year if the  policing was undertaken by one police force. Mr. Manson recognizes that the municipalities have  been   very
sensitive about being charged with the costs of
special men sent in for the purpose of enforcing the liquor act.    On the other hand, ne reminds the taxpayers tbat in those   municipalities which have taken advantage of the amend
ing statute referred to, this difficulty no longer
exists.    The raceut descent of provincial  police officers upon the roadhouses in the -Vancouver district   lends interest to the police
situation at this time.   Commeuttng editorially on the incident, under the heading of "A
Much Needed Lesson," the Vancouver   Daily
Province says,  in  part:   "The people of this
community bave had a nasty jolt to their self-
respect.   Provincial police ollicers, ignoring
the municipal authorities, raided three road-
houses in the early hours of Sunday morning,
one in   Noath  Vancouver and two in South
Vancouver    Theo arrested and  held in bail
over sixty persons, on the charge of frequenting a gaming honse.   The shock to Greater
Vancouver is not the discovery of these places
—they were notorious—but the fact -hat   the
attorney-general should find  it necessary to
override the local authorities.    And it is not
resentment that these municipalities should
feel at being superseded,  but humiliation—
the shame is not in bting found in these places
but that there should be snch places to be
found in. No doubt there will be more reaction
than one of public opinion to  those midnight
raids, bui if our citizens put firist things first
we think they  will   say it is a good job this
actiou has been taken at last.    The   moral  of
this intervention of the attorney general is
that when municipal officers will not do their
duty to enforca ihe law, or when they are prevented in it, tbey  invite intervention."   The
attorney general makes no comment on the
this action of his provincial officers. The Van
couver Proviuce, however, seems to huve said
all there istto say about this incident.
In the selection of Hon. S. F. Tolmie as

"My, but Americans are young looking
people!" exclaimed Miss Alma Law, air Australian, on ber first visit to San Francisco.
"There doesn't seem to be any old ones And
such handsome, well dressed and pleasant
folks." The peopla of the northern part of this
coutinent do look young and, in fact, are look,.
ing younger every day. This is not entirely
due to the applied science of the pulchritude
parlor, but in large measure it is accounted for
by a ment tl attitude in which a native optimism is reinforced by friendly suggestion. We
have not discovered the elixir of life—that is,
not the elixir put In bottles—but we have the
secret of keeping young, and it is telling each
other that we look so. We do know how to
greet one another, and though greetings can
not make auy difference in the calendar, they
may make a world of difference iu one's ap-
pearanee. Years are cut off when we are told
we are looking well, and if we feel youngea we
can not help looking younger. Statistically we
know that modern medical science has added
at least ten years to the average Canadian life,
bu the average man, and certainly the aver
age woman, looks ten years youi ger tban he
and she did twenty years ago.

that time many of the lands belonging to the
cathedral of St. Peter at Westminster were
appropriated to repair St. Paul's cathedral.
Hence the expression "to rob Peter to pay
Paul."
To discover the religious problems which
perplex the man in the street, Rev. F. L. H,
Millard, vicar of the Church of St. John the
Evangelist, Brixton, London, is setting aside
certain Sundays when, instead of a sermon,
questions will be asked by worshipers from
tbeir pews. The vicar will also question the
congregation from the pulpit.

Poems From Eastern Lands
Arabia
To a Lady Weeping
When I bebeld thy blue eyes shine
Thro'tbe bright drop that pity drew,
I saw beneath those tears ol thine
A blue ey'd violet bathed in dew.
Tbe violet ever scents the gale,
Its hues adorn the fairest wreath,
But sweetest thro' a dewy veil
Its colors glow, its odors breathe.
Aud thus thy charms io brightness rise—
Wheo wit aod pleasure round tbee play,
When mirth site smiling in thino eyes,
Wbo but admires tbeir sprightly rays?
But when thro' pity's flood they gleam,
Who but must love tbeir eoften'd beam?
—Ebn Alrumi.

of the whole—are said to be favorably inclined to the amalgamation.

In order that a more intimatt
knowledge of the Canadian Pacifie
Railway shipping terminals in the
vicinity of Montreal might be gained, over 150 traffic representatives
of the various industrial concerns in
the district were the guests of the

Adirondack Junction, Mile End, East
End cattle markets, Angus Shops,
