II may be interesting to jobbers
and others to lesro that tbe growers
are this year taking steps to ensure
tbat the truit is picked at tbe
proper time. Middlemen will also
be relieved to bear tbat tbe Summerland station's experiments bave
shown tbat breakdown usually takes
plsce within a month or so ol tbe
time that the fruit is picked, and
that apples whioh do not show the
trouble two months alter they are
picked very seldom develop breakdown no matter how long tbey are
These facta should go a long way
towards restoring tbe confidence of
buyers in the keeping quality of
western grown apples.
The importance of picking apples
at thn proper plate of maturity is
not yet fully realized by many
growers The Jonathan in particular
mnpt h harvested at jUst tbe rigbt
time if it is to reach tbe consumer in
prime eating condition. This statement is mply borne out hy results
of experiments carried on during
tbe past two yeare at the Summer*
land experimental station. There
results are presented at length in
the British Columbia Fruit Growers'
association report for 1924 : nd in
tbe report of the Summerland sta
tion for tbe same year. Nevertheless
it eeems advisable at tbis ime to
remind growers of a few ol the finds
ings wbicb may be of assistance to
tbem in harvesting the 1925 crop.
In brief, tbe results suggest tbat
breukdrown can be a most entirely
prevented Sy barvtsting tbe truit at
tbe proper stage of maturity. Various maturity tests bave been tried
out in an endeavoi to find one
wbich is reliable and at the same
time simple enough tor the growr-r
to use in the orchard. Tbe most
satisfactory test which bas yet hem
lound is wbat is kuown as tbe
"ground color" test. The ground
color of an apple is the color of the
skin on tbe unnlushed side Ab thc
apple ripens tbis ground color
changes trom gteen to ye'low, Wben
tbe fruit ie left on until the giouid
color is clear yellow t!;eie is every
probability tbat a fair percentage ot
the apples will develop breakdown
Apples picked wben tbe ground
color is still distinctly green are
likely to b poor in quality, lie
tween these extremes there is a stige
of maturity wben tbe ground color
sbo/vsjuet a tinge of green Apples
picked at this time seldom Buffer
from breakdown and usually develop good flavor.
A number ol factors other tban
maturity bave been found to influence tbe susceptibility of apples to
breakdown. Of tbese factors, site of
Iruit, amount ol crop, and vigor of
trees are important in connection
with the harvesting of the crop,
Overlarge truit from trees carrying
a light crop-Jor from very vigorous
trees is more likely tu develop
breakdown tban fruit wbich i»
smaller in size and firmer in texture
For this reason special care should
be taken to pick tbe crop e rly from
lightly loaded, heavily thinned aud
overs-vigorous tiees.
It ie impossible to aet a definite
calendar date beiore whicb Jonathans should be picked Tbe dale
would vary with such factors as tbe
season, tbe district, and tbe condition ol the trees hemselves. From
present indications, however, it
seems likely that Jonathans . will
reaoh the proper stage ol maturity
Ior picking about ten days earlier
tban usual tbis year. This iact,
oombioed with the ground color test
and the above information regarding size, should enable growers to
plan their 1926 pioking program so
as to avoid tbe disastrous losses Buttered by some districts in 1924,
Growers who are particulajly interested can secure more detailed
information regarding the harvesting
of apples by writing to the Summer-

The researches of a group of scientistt recently have thrown some light on the dark
subject of sleep-walking    They have found
that sleep is a more or less   willful turning
away of the senses from the demands of life—
b.cause at the moment these demands can
not be satisfied.    When we are weary all our
senses—all our nerves—are so played out that
tbey "turn away from life" at the same moment.   The brain, so to speak, goes to sleep
in a lump. It happens occasionally that a part
of the brain is poisoned by disease, whereas
the rest of the organ remains healty. When the
healthy parts fall asleep the excited.or poison
ed parts, remain wakeful.    In the case of the
sleep-walker, that part of the   brain which
controls the movements of the legs is   awake,
while the eyes and ears are sound asleep.    Id
other words, the sleep-walker is suffering from
partial brain poisoning.   The idea that sleepwalkers should not be wakened is a mistaken
one. Experience shows that if tbey are roused
to an immediate sense of their situation they
are more like on future -occasions to waken
Britain has a gold mine of its own, where
working was recently resumed after a lapse of
nearly 1700 years. Tee gold deposits are
found near Conwil Calo.in North Carmarthenshire, Wales. Coarse gold has been discovered
i i a depth of eighteen feet frcm the surface,
a id the lower soil is believed to be richer.
Extensive old workings exist at the mine,
which was originally developed by the Romans. Though there are no records to show
h »w much gold was extracted by the old
•v:*rkmen, or what methods they adopted, the
vorkings show that mining was carried out
over a long period.
There are not ten members of the British

Train 300 Miles Long to Carry Crop
Stationed at the Transeena yards, Winnipeg, and at sUatagic points throughout
the Prairie Provinces, the Canadian Padfle Railway has 86,000 boxcars standing
ready,for tha transportation of the 1925 crop. Of these over 8,000 cars are at the
Winnipeg yards. To move thia immense aggregation 650 freight and 150 switch engines
will be required.
Were they all to be Joined up into one train and if we further suppose that this
train were moving at twenty miles an hour over a level crossing, a motorist who arrived
there iust as the first engine reached the crossing, would have to wait fifteen hours until
the caboose passed across. This would Indeed be a case where "taking a chance" wonld
almost be justified.
Each boxcar ia from 86 to 40 feet in length or an average of 88 feet Allowing a
apace between each of four feet and taking into consideration also the 660 engines each
ninety feet long, the total length of thia great train would be about 290 miles which
at twenty miles an hour would take dose on fifteen hours to pass a given point.
The carrying capacity of a boxcar ia about 1,600 bushels of wheat and this would
take care on the flrst movement of the above imaginary train of 52,600,000 bushels.
Since the train in ita individual movements will travel several times, an idea of what
roportion of the 1985 crop, estimated at 875,000,000 bushels the Canadian Padfle
' ail way will carry, is lndjcatad.      __      _ Catting of the crop la already under way and movement of the grain will

The Offidal Ride of the Trail Riders of the Canadian Rockies, commenced
this year on the morning of August 8th and ended at Wapta Camp on the
night of the tenth. Over a hundred members participated. They rode across
•country between Marble Canyon, on the Banff-Windermere Highway, to the
Bungalow Camp at Lake Wapta.
The Riders, among them a number of prominent society people, scientists
and artists, all travelling on horse-back, blazed a new passage across the
Wolverine Plateau. Six countries -Aere represented: Canada, the United
States, Australia, France, the West Indies and England. The artists, of
whom there .were Bix, made sketches of the -irgin scenery along the route
ef the newly discovered trail.
Seven Indians were in the party, six being Kootenays under Chief Louis
Arbel, while the seventh waa Chi' f Buffalo Child Long Lance who gave a
lecture on the Indian Races of Canada to tha Canadian Club of Montreal
during the winter, and is rapidly becoming famous as an authority upon
Indian affairs.
The artists induded Leonard Richmond, R.B.A., and A. L. Leight.on of
England; Carl Rungius, Belmore Browne and Richard M. Kirobrl, of New
Tork, and R. Palenske of Chicago. Paris was represented by tho Due de
Nemours, who recently purchased a ranch near Calgary.

Lake Louise and Banff to the point of departure on the Bariff-Windermere
Highway. There guides and horses were in readiness and the party immediately mounted and the Ride commenced. The trail led up Tumbling
Creek, past Tumbling Glacier and on the Wolverine Plateau where lunch was
'served. The ride then proceeded along the Plateau with the Wolverine
Palisades, Mount Helmet and tbe Washmawapta Icefield and Waterfalls on
the loft, giving the riders a view of ths Ten Peaks on the right.
That night camp was pitched on the Goodsir Plateau and before retiring
the campers gathered around the file for the usual sing-song, in the shadow
of the cliff which rises sheer six thousand, fi ve hundred feet above its valley.
On the second day the ride led down to Goodsii Creek and up McArthur
Creek, past Lake McArthur. That night was speht of the shores of Lake
O'Hara, the camp there being placed at the disposal of the Trail Riders by
the Alpine Club of Canada.' The day ended again with a sing-song.
On the third day, August 10th, the final ride was made from Lake O'Hara
to W1apta Lake, where the expedition was concluded with a Pow-wow, -inf-
song and pale-face dance at Tipi Camp. It is expected that another ride of a
similar nature will take place next year US the undertaking impressed thopr
