Grant Chase, aged about 60 years,
wag ilrownrd in Christina lake tbis
morning by breaking through the ice
while skating a few Hundred feet
from shore off Baker creek. The ice were he went tbrough
was only about half an inch thick.
Mr. Chase lias rrsided in this district for a number of
years. He was quite a noted hunter and his three dogs
went down •with~himl and were also drowned. In trying
to get out of the icy water he was considerably hampered
by thr dogs clawing around him, and he failed in the
attempt. Ernest Danielson was a shiort distance behind
Mr. Chase, tbut befoire he could-render any assistance the
unfortunate man had disappeared beneath the ier for tbe
last time.
Tihe body has not yet been recovered, and It ii» doubtful
if it ever will be, as Christina lake shares thr reputation
wtlth Lake Superior of never giving up its dead.
Mr. Chase fs survived by his wdfe. Ho wan a man of an
interesting personality, and he will be greatly missed
throughout the entire Boundary district.

Fire-Destroys Ffcl-S Residence
1 C. V. 'Mason's residence in the Ruckle addition, near
the Norris box factory, was completely diestroyed by fire
last Sunday afternoon. ' The Are is supposed to have
started; fn the garret, and when it was discovered it had
gained, so miuch headway that it wasbeyond control. Lack
of water also hampered the brigade and the people present
in fighting it.
The furniture and all th outbuildings were saved. The
loss sustained by the destruction of the building is, it
is understood, pretty well covered by insurance.

A Can of Compre sion, Please
A loss of conijiression Is sometimes hard to find and repair. To ascertain the cause, try the compression of each
cylinder. If weak or If It varies ln the different cylinders, repair tlie trouble at once. It may leak lin the piston
rings; it may escape through a leayy valve or pet-cock or
ooze past a spark plug. If the engine head Is. detachable.
It may leak past the gasket. Then again there may be .**.

Care must be taken,to keep the cylinder head tight,
and in tightening lit evenly all around, for it the gasket is
not held firmly at any point it will give way and leakage
W.J11 result.
The piston rings may have turned so that the openings
are all In line, or you may be using such a, light oil that
the engllne does not get a tight compression seat. Oil
when heated Is very thin. In some cases patented piston
rings will help eliminate the leakage. If the cylinder is
wdrn oval, there ls.no remedy except tbat of restoring it.
Kerosene will help free the rings of carbon, but it is best
to use it when yot*, are ready to drain off the old crankcase
ouY ,
Make sure that the spark plugs lit tightly and that they
.are provided with good copper asbestos gaskets. A cracked porcelain will allow compression to escape. Look over
the priming cups and see that all lit tightly and stay closed.
Carbon under the valve's will prevent them from seating
tightly. . The remedy ts to keep the engine free from
carbon, the valves clean and be sure that the timing of
the .valves and the tappet adjustments are right.
When an engine that is clean, properly lubricated and
has Its valvies ground regularly shows u serious loss of
power, the lack of proper compression may be ascribed' to
the piston rings having worked into line or the cylinders
having worn to a point where the pistons are unauly loose.
With the modern, tyue rings the former is a rare result, so
that the cause is narr6weddown to plain wear.
These sie the chief causes of loss of compression. The
self-starter, the boon of the present day motorist,' is ac-
■ companied by one ratht-r unfortunate result. The opera-
. tor Who cranked his engine by hand knew the feel of compression ahd was guided by it in determining to a certain
extent the power at his engine. Many persons seldom
crank their engines by hand and have no guide except
the operation of the car to warn them, that compression
is falling og. Watch the compression—it will save you
money that otb.ryise you would give to the repairman.
Information as to the draft of the bill governing mar-
kettngketing ls supplied In a communication from II. V.
Craig, barrister, Kelowna, to the Vernon News, and printed
In yesterdap's issue of that vaper. Mr. Craig lias been
studying the measure, it Ib understood, at the instigation
of some independent shippers. It is well to know this
when giving consideration to the comment, so obviously
contained therein:
The discussion which 1 have heard in regard to the proposed bill now beiore the agricultural committee of the
house, known as the Control bill, indicate that few of the
persons concerned realyy understand what the provisions
ofthe bill are.. I thoght it might be or interest to your
readers to state the miain provisions of the bill. A copy
of the redrafted bill has just reached me from the oflice
of the minister of agriculture, and the summary given below is taken from it.
The bill provides that that constitution lor one year of
a committee known as the "Interior committee," of three
persons ito regulate the marketing of all tree fruits and
vegetables grown in a district roughly from Keremeos to
the Alberta boundary and from the main line of the C.P.R.
to the U. S. A. boundary.
One of the commiittee isto be appointed by the government and the other two by the British Columlbia Grower
and SShippeirs Federation.
The committee is responsible neither to the government
to the 'Federation of Shippers nor to th   growers.
It is not responsible for its mistakes, its negligence nor
jts ttncoinipetence (Sec. 12).
On request of the Interior Committe, and without the
necessity of consulting the wishes of any other person
the Government may extend its operations for an indefinite time (Sec. i (2).
The Government appointee may be removed at any
time. The two memlbers of the commUtee are appointed
for a year and may not be removed during that period.
The Interior Committee has power in Its area to determine at what places and at what prices all tree fruits
and vegetables can bemarketed.
It may give special treatment to any firm or individual.
May fix the shivping point.
Make the shippers furnish full details of their business,
including their stock in hand.
May fix minimum and maximum prices.
May prevent any attempt to market part of the crop.
May   collect their  own  fees  and   expenses  from  the
growers by deductions from the product.
May  inspect  the  shippers   books.
May settle claims and rebates.
May employ a staff and secure officers.
Any persons who does not like  the decisions or the
Comlmittee may subimit the1 question to arbitration.
The Committee makes an annual report to the Federation which the Federatimon can read but otherwise cun-
not deal with.
All shippers nr st obey orders of the Committee and
cannot market anything except as directed by the Com-
mittoe subject to heavy penalties.
All shippers must lbe licensed by the Comnlitteo who
may also cancel the licenses for any violation of the
The above provisions apiply to a grower shipper.
Growers in other parts of the Province can have a
controll conijaiitt Drought into being by a 75 per cent
vote, but tlie Interior Committee is -brought into being
by the act nad no vote is required.
lt is apparent that the Act throws a very heavy responsibility npon the Interior Committee and that anybody who is endowed with the wisdom' to carry out its
provisions wiould be wise enough to avoid the responsibility. It seems unlikely that first lass men will be
obtainable to occupy these positions and that it will
be necessary to fall back upon piersons of inferior calibre. I|f such people undertake the responsibility of
marketing the entire fruit and vegetable crop of the
district it is quite likely to. result in serious loss and
this loss unfortunately must fall upon the growers.

Victoria, Feb. 9—After four weeks

Thus another bu/bble burst, the only unfortunate thing
about this system of tactfes being that unfair and false
impressions are bandied about the country where there
is not the slightest foundation in fact
The huge increase ln exports of lumber In the water-
borne trade were cited by Hon. T. D. Pattullo, minister
of lands, in the legisture as the best evidence of the development of thelumlbering Industry In this provinoe. In
the life of the Liberal goverinment, he said, this trade
had increased from 46,0100,000 feet per annum to over
700,000,000 feet. In a special report he showed that settlement all through the central interior of British Columbia was increasing steadily and agricultural production
was much higher, i While it might appear at times that
progress was slow, the tremendous strides in all indus-
i ries was proof to the contrary.
Radical changes in the liquor laws, which should tend

Another feather in the cap of the Oliver government in

a normal hatch ls to be obtained.
By far the most important method of assuring a su Ici-
ent supply of moteture in incubation is that of supplying
water by some method In the incubator itself. It Is absolutely necessary in attempting to correct hmniuity ln
i incubator that some accurate method of recording the
relative humidity of the machine be employed and the
simplest method is to use a wet-bulb hygrometer. A relative humidity of from 50 degrees to 60 degrees nas con-
shtently given the best results on the Experimental
5*'arm System. It Is better to err on the side of too mucb
Can too Httle moisture.
One method in general use consists in placing water
nnns or trays of wet sand In the bottom of the incubator
Under ordinary circumstances sufficient moisture is supplied by this method. Experiments were carried on at
( Lethbridge and at the Central Experimental Farm, Ittawa.
i'n which moiisture was supplied bp using pads made of
tMn boardB wrapped to a thickness of about one inch,
with cheese cloth or' burlap, dipped in water and suspended above the eggs. The relative humidi'ty was controlled by the frequency of moistening these pads.   Since
'io air above the eggs is hotter than that below, Its capacity for absorption of moisture is greater, and the max-

In the drier sections of Canada, andeclally where low

for dissension on more than oneoccaslon. To the traveler
who lias wandered about the peninsula the name "Spain"
is most likely, perhapB, to bring up thoughts of Andalusia,
the warm, sunny southern province, paradise of the
Moors for centuries.
The Moors made all of Andalusia the center of a won-
ileiful civilization, n this they were allied, of course, with
the enormous natural wealth of the soil and by a matchless uavishness of sky, sun and moon. These latter elements cntributed in no small degree to the far-famed
brightness of the Andaluslan character of today.

Spate, the little station of Bobadilla will soon be encountered. And thereafter it will surely bob up again with
considerable persistence, because at Bobadilla, which
would otherwise have no fame of any description, the bain
iiues cross—the railway from the north to the south and
that from east to west, Therefore, be it from Gibraltar
to Granada, Irom Malaga to Ssville, from Cordova to Cadiz,
everyone halts and nearly everyone must change trains at
this little station.
Furthermore, since Andaluslan trains are in no untimely
rush to arrive at their destination, the stop at Booadilla
is usually long enough to enable the traveler to partake
of a satisfying meal In the station restaurant.
Bobadilla itself is hi'gh on a plateau surrounded by gray
mountains of a barren and forbidding appearance; but
the train to tho south soon enters the valley of the Gua-
dalhorce, a little stream which has succeeded in cutting
a deep chasm through ithe mountain range, seeking Its
way to the sea.
Judging from the results, the railway engineers hod al
most as much difficulty as the river itself in findiifg a
way through. The trainplunges into a short tunnel to
emerge with a roar onto a bridge strung "high over a terrifying ravine. One catches a glimpse of huge boulders
dllnglnig to the sides of the seemingly bottomless cut, and,
looking high above, sees the blue sky of Andalusia. The
but i.i self is as deep as a skyscraper is high and no wider
thnn a narrow street. i
After the line passes through the last tunnel it comes
suddenly out upon a vega, a veritable garden of soft, green
luxuriance. On every hand are oranges, palm trees, bright
afternoon sunshine, and the ever deep-blue cloudless sky
of the Mediterranean countries.
Then there ds a stop at Churriana, another settlement

garden. The hill completely hides Churriana from the

Little half-barrels are full of the finest Malaga grapes,

there are thousands and thousands of srates of oranges,

ackers ih preparing their product; and little boxes and
baskets of pressed figs, crates of pomegranates, melons,
custard apples and sweet, potatoes.
Barrels of that deliciously sweet muscatel wine are

And while all this is happening on the quays at the railway station, in Novemlber and early December, crates of
fresh.beans and tomatoes are being carefully packed in
express cars to be rushed to Paris epicures, to be followed

From Malaga to Granada there are two ways to go by

The five food factors are salts, fats, carbonhydrates,
proteins and vitamines. Theoretically speaklngf the first
three of these can already be made in a laboratory. The
fourth seems possible and shemlnsts are optimistic about
the fifth, says Floyd Wl. Parsons. The Important question
does not so much concern our abilitp to make these vital
food elements, but rather can we manufacture the essential constituents of our daily diet as cheaply as plants can
grow them. The French scientist,Berthelot, has produced
foodstuffs artificially in a laboratory by subjecting gases
to the actibr. of ultra-violet ray. He proceeds on the
idea that it ls the light of the sun rather than its heat,
that produces growth in plants.! In the growth of animals,
the foodstugs consumed "are reduced to carbonic acid
and water vapor, but in the case of plants the action is
JUBt the reverse. The plant takes the two gases exhaled
by animals and combines them again to form the sugars
and other hydrocarbons that animals feed upon.- Berthe-

functioning of plants is a vital action, the secret of which
lis looked upon in that profound puzzle concerning the cre-
-atlon of life itself.

Poems From EasternLands
Contenlment's realm no fears in*, ade,
No cares annoys, no sorrows shade,
There Plac'd secure, in peace we rest,
Nor aught demand to make us blest.
While pleasure's gay fantastic bower,
The splendid pageant of an hour,
Like yonder meteor'in the skies,
Flits with a breath no more to rise.
As thro' life's various walks we're led,
May prudence hover o'er our head!
May Bhe our words, our actions guide,
Our faults correct, our secrets hide!
May she where'er our footsteps stray,
Direct our paths, and clear the way!
Till, every scene of tumult past,
She bring us to repose at last.
Teach us to love that peaceful shore,
And roam thro' folly's wilds no more!

methods. This is how it is done:
Tsmstis tlit1 end of March Just
before spawning time the trout are
caught in nets, stripped, and returned to the streams, while the
tsggs from the female and fertilizing
nuid from the male Cut-throat are
mixed. In ten weeks the young fry
is ready for its new home in the,trout
stream where it reaches the length of
over eight inches in about fo.ir years.
The annual spring harvest of
Cut-throat eggs at Spray Lakes—
each female giving from 800 to 1,800
eggs—is about three-quarters of a
million. At present 524,824 Lock

. *he task of beautifying the lines of the Canadian Pacific
Railway across the Dominion is increasing to a great
-tent each year. Thc importance of horticultural work in all
.ts branches has bcen realized and according to plans, recently
formulated by thc Floral Committeeof theCanadian Pacific
the work will be greatly extended next spring. Already
1500 pnrks and station gardens have been constructed aloni
the lines. "The Floral Route to the West" is the name by
whicli the Company s garden system is known. Years ago

One of the problems with which the Floral Committee

Pentioton, February 10.—At a
meeting ot the Penticton Cooperative
Growers held this morning they discussed tbe markeiting bill as passed
by the agricultural committee of the
house and were unanimously ln favor
of the bill as it stands,
he bill covers all agricultural pro
ducts, but it is up to the producers
of any community to vote as to
whether they will come under the
bill or not.but so far as the Okanagan
fruit growers are concerned they do
not have to vote again as the bill itself provides for the establishment of
a committee of direction to control
the marketing of our products without further votiny.
The billdoes not force anyone into
the Associated Growers or any other
cooperative society for the disposal
of his products, ibut the marketing
and distribution of our entire product
will be controlled by the committee
of direction.
The bill follows the recommendations of the Kelowna convention and
fn addition makes provision for the
protection om shippers in various respects.
The committee of direction inour
opinion bas absolute control of 'the
marketing of the products a eoted,
the chairman intervening only when
the representatives of organized and
independent growers can not   agree.
We 'take no exception to the provision covering the appoint of a ohair
man of tbt committee of direction
and see nothing fn the bill to warrant
th e statement that he is a life appointee. This clause reads: "The
member of a committee appointed by
the lieutenant governor in council
shall hold office for the period of existence of the comlmittee or until he
is removed therefrom or resigns." In
other words, the chairmancr of th
committet is subject to removal for
cause. It would' be Impossible for
the bill to specify all the causes for
which a chairman could be removed.
