Prompt nailing of misleading and

Samuel Guthrie. Socialist member
for Newcastle, was effected by Hon.
William Sloan, minister of mines.
Mr. Guthrie charged that certain engineers were not on duty on October
8, 9 aod 10 in a Vancouver island
coal mine. The minister informed
him through answers to questions ou
the order paper tbat tbe engineers
were on duty according to custom.
The Newc-isile member declared the
miuister either did nol know wbat
he was talking about or had deliberately lied. Hon. Mr. Sloan's retalia

that they were at tbeir posts.'j And

tbe Oliver government is at least as
strong, if not stronger, than a year

the  opposition  forces are centering
tbeir a tention chiefly upon making
campaign   material   of    whatever
arises,   preparing   for  the  general
election,  which   they anticipate is
not far off.   Those close to the government  make  tbe   guess tbat an

A Thick Skin Indeed
A young traveling salesman in England was on his
first trip to get orders. At
Plymouth, says G. B. Burgin
in Many Memories, he met an
old commercial traveller, who
expressee his interest in the
young man and asked him
how he had fared.
"Badly," the young man
replied. "I was insulted in
every place I visited."
"That is strange," said the
old traveler. "I have been on
the road forty years; I have
had my samples flung into
the street; I have been taken
by the scruff of the neck and
pitched downstairs; I don't
deny that I have been rolled
in the gutter; but insulted—

PRINCE RUPERT, the terminus of the Canadian National Railways
in Northern British Columbia, has come to the fore of recent yeara
as one of the premier fish-producing areas of the Dominion at
Canada. Prince Rupert halibut is known all over the American continent, and the industry has reached large proportions because of the
distribution service placed at the disposal of the fishermen at that port
by the Canadian National Railways.
The one essential in the fishing industry ia the speedy marketing
of the fish after they are caught. By means of a rapid express service
ever the Canadian National, halibut and other fish from Prince Rupert
are laid down in Winnipeg, Montreal, Toronto and other Canadian and
America cities very quickly after they are landed from the fishing
boats in Prince Rupert harbor.
Halibut fishery is the chief sea industry of Prince Rupert, and daring 1922, 25,275,300 lbs. of halibut were landed at that port. In addition, 33,225,300 lbs. of salmon were caught and large quantities of
herring, cod, flat flsh and crabs. The cod and herring fisheries, whieh
have scarcely heen touched as yet, hold a great future.
The photograph shows a few of the hundreds of boats engaged im

ln a statement issued to growers,
G. A. Barrett, managing director of
the Kelowna Growers' Exchange,
The question uppermost in all our
minds at the present time is the price
likely to be paid for this year's fruit
crop. While it is still very early to
predict with any degree of accuracy,
we can safely say that, though the
optimistic expections of the early
summer will oot be realized, the ren
suits will certainly be better than
would be indicated by the many pes
simistic reports in circulation.
Up   to   the early part of October
apples moved into consumption   very
free'y at prices which,   while  not  as
high as we would like to sea, brought
more money than the growers got for
the same   fruit last yoar.  During the
past few weeks domestic sales  have
slowed   up   and   we are now putting
large quantities of app'os into storage
for later sale.
The first shipment to Great Britain
broughtexuellent prices but the later
arrivals did poorly owing to huge.
--hip-Dents of early apples from tht
United States Present indications
point to higher prices ou the British
market, as the early varieties are now
nearly cleaned up. It also appears
very probable that our stored fruit
at prairie points will bring better
prices than we are now getting.
With the exception of some 80 cars
stored at Niagara Falls,practically all
of the Mcintosh crop has been sold.
From Niagara Falls these apples can
be shipped to any point in eastern
Canada or the nited States, or, if a
strong demand develops in Great Britain, they can be sent overseas. The
members of the sales staff are now
giving their enti-ie attention to tho
problem of moving the later varieties.
In this connection the greatest difficulty is to find profitable markets for
the Jonathans, as there is a huge volume of this variety to move and tho
prairie wholesalers are not inclined to
stock up with them on account of tho
way fruit foil down in past years.
Ono thing has  beeu  accomplished
by your organization this year that is
of the utmost importance   Sates havo
been almost entirely kept   on a  firm
f.o.b. basis and the consignment sys
tern has been done   away   with,   we
hope, for all time  to come.    This  in
itself is sufficient to justify the existence  of   your organization, and   the
f.o.b. habit, once established,  should
make   it  much   easier  for us to get
better prices in future.

Whether a man would be able  to  make a
decent living   for his firmly, even though a
small one, on a fifteen acre farm may be a debatable question, but as to the desirability of
•jhe condiiion that such a system, were it made
general, would proluoe there is no reisonable
argument.   The Urge family oajt snn, 11 tract
of land, even in yen's when crops and  prices
were gni, would b^-ojanp-iUeJ to  live from
hand to mouth; and when the lean years came
along they would either have to live on credit
or go hungry.   The system would establish a
condition here similar to that  which prevails
among the Eropean rural peasantry, who have
no hope of miking more than a bare subsistence,  and  who have  to toil almost up to the
day they are ready for the undertaker.   In
this coantry, where land is plentiful, we should
aim to keep as far away from European moth-
ods as possible.   That is  what has made the
nations of the two Americas great and prosperous.   Give the Canadian farmer, whether
in the fruit or grain belt, enough land so that
when he has a good year he can  save something for the future; enough land so  that  his
children won't have to seek outside employment while attending school.   We don't know
who is responsible for the movement of small
farm holding; but it is immaterial who started
it—we don't like it. The farmers of this valley have already been punished sufficiently for
listening to false prophets.   In  future they
should analyze the motives of the  men  who
set themselves as leaders.
The highest building in Europe for private
business or residence is in Vienna and is 82
feet high. London comes next, with eighty-
foot structures. Rome's highest is seventy-
eight feet. And Paris, who guards her skyline
jealously, has no building taller than sixty-
five feet. In New York the Woolworth build-
ing is 792 feet high, the Metropolitan 700 ,

Maxim Gorky wrote in his diary, "When I
watch  how a man behaves when he is alone
by himself I always come to the conclusion
that he is mad." He relates how he saw Chekhov, sitting in  his garden, trying to catch a
sunbeam in his hat and place both on his head
and become irritable when he failed; how he
watched an English clown, thinking himself
unobserved in the deserted passage of a circus, take off his top hat and bow respectfully
to his own shadow; how he overheard Tolstoy
ask a lizard, in a low whisper, "Are you hap
py?"and, after peering cautiously round, confide to the lizard, "as for me—I am not"; and
once he observed a priest stand his boot in
front of himself and say, "Well, walk!" and
after an interval, add with dignity, "You see!
You can't go anywhere without me!" But it is
taking life too seriously to find madness in
these and other such vagaries.    How do you
act when alone?
Perhaps the most widely used cookery book
in the English language is Mrs. Beeton's.
But with all her wise saws and invaluable
hints on cooking, cleaning, treatment of sickness, household economy, and so on, it is
doubtful if a quarter of Mrs. Beeton's readers
ever give a thought to the woman who originated and compiled the work. Who was Mrs.
Beeton? She was the wife of a publisher,
Samuel Orchart Beeton, who lived in Fleet
street, London, England, in the early part of
the nineteenth century. He published the first
English edition of "Uncle Tom's Cabin" and
the first Beeton Cookery Book. Mrs. Beeton's
first domestic guide was published in 1861,
and in the preface she referred to the long and
and hard work her task had entailed, for the
compilation of the book occupied four years.
She was proud of colored illustrations, which
at that time were a novelty. Altogether she
wrote seven books on cooking and home man
agement between 1861 and 1869.
When and liow much can we smoke? An
old divine used to say "People who smoke
now will smoke hereafter." Lord Leverhulme,
the successful proprietor of Sunlight soap.says
that a man who smokes before eleven won't
do a quarter of a day's work. Medical opinion
declare that peoples' nerves are not normal
since the war and they are too ready to seek
nerve relief. Alcohol, tea and tobacco are all,
to some extent, poisons. In small doses and
at the proper season they may be beneficial,
in excess aud out of season they will have a
directly opposite effect. Admitting the necessity of some nerve relief, it must be emphasized that in a healthy, efficiently working
body there should be no need for tobacco in
the early part ofthe day. In the morning the
body and mind are fresh from their long rest;
the wear and tear of the previous day have
disappeared during sleep, and the individual
should be 'as a giant refreshed," and ready to
face unaided tie strain of the day. It is an
entirely different story when the jar and jangle
ofthe working hours have taken their toll of
nerve power.    At this time  the quiet pipe or

Cooperative marketing should loom largely
in the discussions of the Canadian Society of
Technical Agriculturists who meet in Vancouver next week.
Whatever difficulties have been experienced
in Canada in putting the principle to work,
cooperative marketing as an economic fact is
growing steadily in all parts of the world.
In Britain alone cooperatives have a membership of over 4,000,000.
Throughout the world cooperatives do a
business that is estimated in the aggregate at
In nineteen American states, according to
recent figures, the average sale by cooperatives total over $1,000,000.
In Minnesota 44 per cent of all the farmers
use cooperative societies for marketing their
Cooperative marketing is the only system
under which producers receive the same benefits of organization as are enjoyed by big business.
The future of cooperative marketing, as an
econominic machine, is impossible to foretell.
The first duty of those who would raise the
fortunes of the agriculturist is to make him
fully acquainted with its benefits and opportunities.—Vancouver Sun.

"Wonderful indeed is the power of
the voice."—Cicero,
The power of the voice is the success
of the telephone. It was in the endeavor
to transmit sound that the telephone was
invented, and the great factor of its de
velopment into an article of very common
use is that direct conversation may be
carried on.
Because it enables one's personality to
be sent is the reason that the telephone
promotes friendships and intimacy, and
brings about closer relations between
those in business. The pleasure of hearing the voice you know makes long distance the casual practice of every one.

The Objects of thia Institution, for which Incorporation was recently ob
tained, are: "To provide a Home and Refuge for Baby and Infant Blind; to
provide free Scientific Care, Training and Maintenance; to Save the Lives of
even a few of the many of such unfortunates, who, for the lack of such service, perish every year; and to return these little ones to their parents, at
school age witb normal, healthy bodies and sound minds."
This is a large and greatly needed Child Welfare Service. Careful enquiry
at tlio Qovernment offices in the verious provinces reveals the fact that there
are at the presant time nearly 250 Infant Blind in the Dominion. Nothing
hat yet been done for those helpless little ones. In the United States, 16
years ago, the first home was 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,
and he claims that it is the only one iu the British Empire. Let us have the
SECOND in Canada. To reach this worthy end money is urgently required.
Fifty Thousand Dollars is the present objective of the Bosjd. While the
Home is to be located in Ottawa it will take in the Baby Blind from every
provinoe, so that this APPEAL for funds will be Dominion wide, and an
early and generous response is confidently expected. Cheques should be made
payable to the Canadian Blind Babies Home Association. All remittances
will be promptly acknowledged.

QUEBEC is again to have a real, live carnival that shall
be truly representative of the wonderful sporting
attractions of the ancient Capital. Thc success of the
dog races held in Quebec last year has encouraged the
organizers to sponsor a very much bigger program for
this year, and a comprehensive series of sporting events
will be held on February 21, 22, and 23, in which all the
sports for which Queucc is so naturally adapted will he
represented, and culminating in a grand masquerade ball
at the Chateau Frontenac. In addition to the international races for the Eastern Dog Sled Derby Trophy,
there will be events in snow-shoeing, skiing, Ice racing,
curling and skating. The whole of these events will take
place within the Exhibition Grounds, and lt is proposed
in once again give Quebec an ice palace.
The people of Quebec take, and naturally, a great
£ride ir. their wonderful old city, and the ancient capital
not so large that its people cannot get togethe.r on
occasion to fete en massp. A carnival in Quebec is not to be
forgotten, for the whole populace absorbs the spirit of the
season, drawing its visitors into the gay vortex, ae tjko*
even the walls which rang te laughter centuries age leee
their aged atmosphere, and lend themselves to the feet.
By reason of its even and exhilarating climate, iii
accessibility and natural and artificial opportunities fat
sport, Quebec is the home of the winter sports lor tke
continent. Each wintry season, mora people aie attracted to it, and for long .periods it becomes the social
centre, as well as the sporting centre of North Ameriea.
Practically everything that-is carried on ia on an open
scale—Quebec is the soul of hospitality. A hund.-ed rink*

Almost every day we rely upon His Majesty's Postal service (or the
delivery at certain hours of letters and parcels which are of value
and which would lose their value were they delivered tardily. Seldom

Due to the increasing use of His Majesties Mails, the Canadian Pacific
F.ailway has found it necessary to add to its rolling stock, twelve new Mail
tnd Bagrrge coaches. These, being up-to-date in every respect, provide
ev-:ry facility for the handling o( the mall, and a number o( conveniences (or

which to tie the letters into bundles is conveniently at hand, and if some of
the bundles contain registered mail they are placed into the pigeon holes

scrupulously clean.
The baggage and express end of the coaches is also the last word in cer
construction. As with the mail section, the doors open in the centre of the
compartment, one half of which has a solid floor, the other half being fitted
with flsh racks. In addition to the conveniences afforded the mail clerks,

The twelve new cars were designed by C. H. Temple, Chief of Motive
Power and Rolling Stock, Canadian Pacific Railway, and were constructed
by the Canada Car and Foundry Company, Ltd., Montreal. They are
designed to carry 80 tons of express matter and 10 tons of mail, a total of
40 tons; compared with 80 tons, the capacity of the old type of co:.ch. The
Company hns adhered to the six wheel truck, but heavier journals have
been provided, 6*A by 10 in place of the 5 by 9 Inches. Another feature
of the new coaches is the diaphragm ends. This eliminates the danger of
people "riding blind".
Until more are constructed, the new coaches will operate between*
ntreal and Toronto, Montreal and Sault Ste. Marie, Toronto aud St.
N.B.. and WinniDee. and Edmonton on Canadian Pacific lines.

Ten Commandments
For the Motorist
The ten commandments of good
driving are as follows:
1. Drive on tbe right side of the
road; it is just as good as the left.
2. Slow down wben approaching
a crossroad; it is nearly as dangerous as a railroad crossing.
3. Look out for children. You
can never tell wbat they will do.and
you are always in the wrong if you
bit one.
4. Try to help instead of hinder
the traffic officer; he is there for
your goof', and he's got a tough job.
5 Be sure that your "dimmers"
really dim; it's no joke driving into
