AT
TorontcJ November 15.—British, Co
lumfbla's success In the apple growers' section of the Royal Winter fair
proved one of the sensations of the
day on Saturday. The western province took first place in every class
in which It was entered. ^^^
Pinal resuts in the box apples
cltsses are not yet available.
'Winners in classes judged to date
include:
Famous, four boxes, Assaclated
Growers of British Columlbia.
Early reports of British Columbia's success in the apple exhibits
were continued with the' issuance of
tbe alliclal prize-winning list today.
The Pacific coast took first prize
ln the iRome Beauty, Jonathan, Newton and Delicious classes.
The Associated Prowers of British
Calumbia won the sweepstake [or the
beat box of any variety on exhibit
with their box ol' DelMous apples.
HOW BEES KNOW
THE WAY HOME
How doea the bee, after spending
a long day gathering honey or pollen
far from home, unerringly find her
way back to the hive?
The senses of smell and sight, both
singly and together, help to guide
hea. 'What is far more Interesting,
however, is the fact that she can
recognize the position of the bive
relative- to its surroundings, and pos-
sessees, in addition, a mysterious apparatus for (balancing and direction
finding.
, it is surmised that this unknown
guide of the bee corresponds to tho
semicircular canals in the inner ear
of mJumin-alB, and is almost certainly
located in the antenae, or feelers.
For la number of years now astonishing experiments on bees have been
going onin KJera-iany. They have already revealed tthe existence of a1
special organ of communication,
which, when pushed out, enables the
bive sisters to spread an informative
scent by means of wilnich they can
"talk" ito one another.
Atteiqpts were made to mislead
the wonderful little creatures by
moving the hive fram Its accustomed position. When the first hime-
comera, after some search, found the
new resting-place, itjhey wouid gather
ln a crowd on the alighting board
and push out their scent organs until
the "smlell signal" reached their folia-wen. -.
If bees were taken away from
home in closed boxes and then released, it did mat 'take them-long to
(ind their bearings; but if the boxes
were first rotated the inmates became giddy, and on being let out had
eonsideraible difficulty in finding the
way back to the hive, often settling
down after some futile attempts in
the boxes from which Ihey had escaped.
Handicap races were organized
between bees which had not been
mfrtde giddy and those which had
been vigorously twtiried about. The
giddy ones were given a start home,
but in spite of the handicap, they
were always beaten hy -their sisters.
Bees whose feelers had been cut
off never showed eymiptomis of giddiness.
Precisely how the directional, sense
of the bees works and just where it
is located in the feelers still remains
to be discovered.

RETARDATION IN THE CSHOOLS
-I OF BRITISH    COLUMBIA
i iRetardaition or "over-ageness" ls
pesent in every system of education
to eome degree. In British Columbia, according to tables prepared by
the department of education, 61 per |
cent of pupils in rural and assisted
schools are over age; and the per-
1 centage for the whole province os 63
per cent.
This is very high in comparison
- with other parts of the world; but as
the Bysaem for computing retardation are different, this result would
probably appear lower if another
systtem had been used.
Considering that the average cost
per pupil per year in the elementary
school is about $70, the commission
ers esitmlate that the yearly loss   to
the    ratepayers of British Columbia
through retardation is  $568,750.   Be-
, sides   thi e there is the loss of time
! of the pupils by which they are kept
longer from wage earning
i    A   good   deal of retardation is, of
course,     unavoidable.     Briefll,    the
causes ol retardation fall into tbree
cltsses:
I     (a) Inability.    .
I     (b) 'Changing school, illness, social
and economic conditions,
;     (c) Inadepuate      supervision,    inefficient teaching,  faulty curriculum
and examination system.
Better system-* of medical inspection and follow-up work would undoubtedly reduce the retardation due
to illness.' Most of the other condi
tions cited in
avoidable.   But
this last Is advisable everywhere,
they claim it is absolutely essential
in district municipalities and unorganized school areas.
A card record system should be
adopted whereby the school history
of each pupil can ibe kept and passer
on for the guidance of eaoh teacher
of that pupil.
Tho commissioners also recommend the practical abolishing of the
examination system, and the substitution of approved tests.
These reforms would largely elimi
nate the avoidable causes of- retardation. Opportunity classes established wherever possible would do
Much to remedy the retardation
which occurs in spite of all precau-
' tions.
BY   ERWIN   GREER
Can you conceive a motorless world
producing any kind of a motion picture? Without motor cars there
would be no motion pictures, for the
two industries are just wrapped up
ln one another.
The automobile might merely take
your favorite star to location, but
again it might be the whole plot of
tbe piece, as in a motor racing stdry.
You say—"KJive us a thrill"—they
reply—"Get us a motor car!" There
is that usual automobile race—when
you grip the arm of the seat while
your hero tears mildly around tho
curves and slyly dodges the villian.
You know he must win—healways
does—but nevertheless you get just
as much enjoyment as he tears past
the goal, ahead by the merest frac
tion of an inch! Then how would we
get rid ot   unnecessary
last   reel.   Yes,   we   will hand It to
the car when it comes to thrills.
There are many otber uses for the
car that are peculiar to the pictures.
One huge truck had to carry a motor
generator for power down in Florida.
This generator developed power
enough for a city of ten thousand
population—so you can Imagine thes
size.
In   the   smaller   oities and towns,
however, the audiences at the movie
houses    are    largely   motoring folk.
Look at any movie house in   one   of
the smaller towns during a performance   and   you   will   find adjacent
streets and  byways   cluttered    with
cars.   In what governmlent statistics
call "rural towns," places with   fifty
thousand    or    less    inhabitants,  the
movie house showing first-class films
could not live without the patronage
of thie farmers and tlieirl'amSlies from
the surrounding distrlot.   I have seen
numberless otses  in  middle  western
towns,    ln    Iowa,   Krusas, Nebraska
and   other   states    where   the cars
Parker   around   tbe   movie   theater
during a performance   were   numerous enough to have brought in every
person   attending the show.
And what/ a blessing the movies
have been to rural America. The
farm family which traditionally lives
in isolation, content to make the interests of its own acres the motivation of its entire life, is now able to
step from the narrow round of the
bum-drum- into high life in European
capitals, or the thrills of melodrame
or any other phase of life that its
nearest movie house chances to be
presenting. I
INQUIRY
Hon. T. D. Pattullo, minister of
lands and forests, at tho public meeting In the court house last Friday
evening, stated that four-fifths ofthe
money spent by tbe provincial government in fighting forest fires the
past season was spent in the interior,
the exact figures being $410,000 for
Christmas travel from Canada to
the Old Country is expc-.-ted to be
exceedingly heavy this year over
the CP.R, lines and by the Canadian Pacific liners. High wheat
prices and good crops are given as
the causes for this exodus. The
rush will be inaugurated virtually
by the sailing of the C.P.R. liner
Montroyal on December 7, for whicli
a special train will be run to ship

neighbor in -charge of a- traction engine that had stuck fast owing to the
road giving way with the heavy
weight.
Wishing to help him out of his difficulty, the engineer set about seeing
how it could be accomplished.
Looking at the steam gauge, be
saw 10 pounds rpessure registered.
Asking the man how he meont to get
out of the hole with only that pressure, he got the following reply:
"Ten pounds pressure, d'you eay?

was of the opinion that most of the
000 for the entire province. The
great need, the minister said,is education in forest lire prevention. He
was of tbe opinion that most of the
fires in the interior were caused by
lightning, but nevertheless the public sbould be more careful. Mr. Pattullo stated that the object of the inquiry was to discover tbrough suggestions by men who are in the business, what can be done to cut down
British Columbia's loss of timber
through fire.
P. Z. Caverhll), chief forester, gave
statistics concerning the importance of the timber Industry of tba
province, and R. Dl Stuart, Vancouver district forester and head of the
forest fire fighting department of the
province, quoted the cost of fire
fighting for a number of years.
D. McPherson, miemlber for Orand
Forks-Greenwood, was the only local
person to offer a remedy to prevent
forest fires. In bis opinion more
fire patrols early in the season would
mitigate tbe costly nuisance. The
minister thanked him for his suggestion, and the (inquiry, which was
rather brief, was adjourned.
TRAIL   ADDING   ANTIMONY
TO B. C. PRODUCT8  '
Plans have been completed forthe
I erection of an antimony refinery   at
Trail by the Consolidated Mining &
I Smfolting company.   Work will begin
on the plant shortly.
Antimony will add anothe r metal
to the growing list of tbose produced
at the big plant. The metal Was
used for munitions during the war
and was in urgent demand. Close
of hostilities saw a large quantity of
it thrown on the market with de
pressing egect. Latterly, however,
the market has cleaned itself and ls
once more ln sound condition, presenting a money-making opportunity
for producers.
Material that otherwise would go
tq. waste will furnisr the feed for the
antimony refinery. No indication of
the probable annual output of the
new Trail department is available.

If you bave not "bad your iron today" ithe quickest way to get it is to
eat apples , say the promoters of
week, who are advancing that fruit
as worthy of a place the year round
in the menu of the average home.
Professor F. A. Haras, who, wlthA.
A. Milledge of the British Columbia
Products Bureau of the Vancouver
Board of Trade, is promoting apple
ln British Columbia, makes the following claim- for the apples:
Apples, are one of the best sources
of iron for the diet. The apple is tbe
heaviest iron-carrying fruit that we
can eat, having 30.100 per cent iron
in its make-up.
The use of all the fresh fruits two
or three times a day will give a full
ration of the needed iron for the system in combination with the iron
contained in bread, eggs, meat and
other articles which are routine in
tbe daily meal. Pears also contain
iron and are recommended by dieticians for their value in furnishing
this element among others.
In the light of chemical study, it Is
now known that the regular t-onsump
tion of fresh fruit the year round,
particularly apples, there is no need
for Iran tonics In spring or ut any
other time. Tho necessity only will
arise when tho dietls deficient in
fresh fruit and green vegetables.

I ma-fine our modern cities without
taxis, or worse still without a speed
limit! One is accustomed to step into
a taxi and reach a destination many
blocks or miles away in-the space of
a few moments, yet within a speed
limit or all would be chaotic confusion
with taxis running wild through the
cities. Taxis and speed are two words
•synonymous in the United States and
elsewhere. There are, however, many
countries,  especially in  the immemorial East—which use conveyances
answering   the  same   purposes  for
which no speed limit is needed, they
move along in the leisurely way of the
Orient,  and yet meet the requirements  of  people in  those  ancient
lands.

The jinricksha of Japan, is the
nearest approach to a taxi, for this
thing that at times nearly bowls one
over, is the man-taxi of the East, the
rubber-tired, brass-lamped, white
cushioned vehicle.
Possibly Peking has the greatest
collection of strange foreign taxis
of any city. Through the Chien Men
■—the front door of Peking, come
strings of double-humped, long-haired
Bactrian camels from the Gobi
Desert, bringing the very breath of
the desert with them and all the
mystery of the Mongolian wastes.
The next vehicle that may enter the
Chien Men—the mouth of that
fabled dragon whose eyes are two of
the other nine gates, and whose body
is the breathing city itself, is the

little grey donkey, with a string of
clear ringing bells. This is a small
compact two-wheeled springless contrivance covered in blue and it is
sometimes drawn by mules arrayed in
silver harnesses. A similar conveyance
is also favoured by the Japanese who
call it a "sado".
The camel-car of India is about the
oddest looking taxi of them all, and it
never breaks tne speed limit. Camel-
back, too, is a very popular mode of
transportation and not too bad for
short distances. The native women,
also, play the part of taxis in India,
and the sight of them strapping large
suit cases on their backs and starting
off for hotels at a fair rate of speed
is just one of the unusual things which
passengers on the Canadian Pacific
liner Empress of Scotland will see, on
the Round the World Cruise this
winter, which leaves New York on
December 2 and returns on April 12.

Technically speaking.a hair's breadth is just"
17 10,000 of an in^h. For the purpose of
such delicate measurement, toolnv-kers employ what is styled a micrometer caliper.. The
hair's breadth is something that must be taken
into consideration in the manufacture of many
objects in machine makers' skill. Very precise
calculations of this sort must, for instance, be
practiced upon the doors of bank vaults, where
every part must fit to the nicest degree. In
addition to the micrometer caliper for the attainment of exactness in metal work, there are
also employed tbe ring gauge and plug gauge-
It is obvious that failure to take into consid-
sideration the contraction aud expansion of
metals sometimes results in disaster to the
manufacturer, In this relation there may be
mentioned the case of the ^manufacturer who
had prepared dies in which castings from soft
metals were to be made. An error of several
thousandths of an inch in diameter of the finished castings existed, and this was 'quite sufficient to render the work useless.

When Thomas Nelson Page went to Rome
as ambassador to Italy in 1813 he quickly won
the friendship of the royal family. Both the
king and Mr. Page recognized immediately ths
essential simplicity of the other, the Youth's
Companion asserts. In a recent book devoted
to his brother's life, Rosswell Page writes:
The ambassador was welcomed to thecountiy
residence of the king of Italy in a royal coacb
that had been sent for bim, though the meeting was very informal. The king came forward and greeted him in a cordial manner,
welcoming him in well chosen English. At
the luncheon tbe conversation was friendly
and unrestrained, except that some of those
present did not speak English, and the ambassador, though a hard student of Italian and a
good Latin scholar, would not then trust himself to use the beautiful language of the country, in which he later became quite fluent,
'We are farmers out here," said the king,
pleasantly, and we do not dress this way all
the time. Today I am dressed to meet the
ambassador fr; m the United States." "I'm a
farmer myself from Virginia,' the ambassador
replied. "I hope you do not thi k I dress this
way all the time. I've only put these clothes
on to'meet the king of Italy."

But when thro' pity's flood tbey gleam,
Wbo but must love tbeir soften'd beam?

beer. They are high in phosphoric, acid, while
the acidity is low and the volatile acidity is
practically nil, proof that the beer is a wholesome
and nutritious beverage."

THE   MILLIONAIRE'S  SECRET
An Irishman was newly employed
at a lumber office. The proprietors
of the company were young men and
decided to have some tun with the
new Irish hand. Pat was duly left
ln charge of the office with instructions to take all orders which might
come ln during their absence. Go-
Ing to a nearby drug store they proceeded to call up tbe lumber com?
pany's office, and the following conversation ensued:
'<Hello! Is thas the East Side
Lun'ber company?"
To be a millionaire, a man must
not only get rich; he must be able
to stay rich. A certain well-known
millionaire,   when    asked   how   he
I stayed rich, said: "I invest my
u-toney only ln sound, established
comppanies."
That man haa learned a valuable
secret. BBut a man's mloney, however much he has, is never worth so
much to him/ as hiis mind, his intelli
gence.
Has it ever occurred to you that
you should invest your intelligence
just as carefully as you invest your
maney?
Why not invest your intelligence
