Contract
Breakers
Prosecuted
Vancouvrr, August 22.—Tbe As*
sociated Growers of British Colbm<
bia and its branches have launched
a series of actions against alleged
contract breakers in the Okanagan
and the Thompson River valley.
Yesterday tbe Associated obtaned
an interim injunction against the
British Columbia Frultlands of Karn
loops, restraining these growers from
disposing of fruit to an independent
concern. Application will be made
next Tuesday to make this injunction permanent. Tbe order was
granted by Mr. Justice Murphy

An application before Mr. Justice

Bees, like some people, if given
the opportunity will steal from ooe
another ratber tban work. This,
however, happens only in timts of
scarcity.
A robber bee is characterized by
its nervous actions. It will fly cautiously up to tbe entrance of a bive,
and wben it sees a bee coming to-
wajd it, it will quickly dodge back;
or it will search tbe walls of a hive
in the hope of finding some unguarded crack through which it can
crawl. An old offender has a shiny
appearance, the result of crawling
tbrough cracks or being roughly
baodled by the guards. On leaving
tae robbed hive, it has a plump look
and'unlike the inmates whicb come
out leisurely, it is in a hu-iry and
takes wing with difficulty owing to
its load.
It is the beekeeper's duty, there,
fore, to prevent his bees acquiring
suoh dishonest habits by seeing that
no sweets are left exposed at any
time; that all cracks and openings in
tbe walls of tbe bive are closed with
mud or day; tbat when hives are
opened the work be done speedily;
that feeding, if any, be done in tbe
evening; and tbat entrances be con
sistent in size with the strength of
the colony. Sbould disease be pres«
ent, tbese measure* are doubly
necessary to prevent not only robbing and its disastrous results, but
also wbat is infinitely worse, tbe
spreading of the disease.
Should robbing start, prompt action is necessary. Contract tbe enn
trance so that two or three bees can
enter abreani; then strew a handful
o fcoarse grass over it and sprinkle
with adippnful of water This puts
tbe robbers at a disadvantage, as
the bees of the colony will attack
tbem aB they crawl through the
wet grass.
Should the robbed colony, however, stand io dangei of being over
come, carry it down into the cellar
and leave it tbere until the uproar
subsides. Coal oil wiped over all
junctions of the hives acts as an ex*
cellent repellant.—A, H. W. Birch,
Apiarist.
The r vised crop estimate fjr Iruit
in the Okanagan district shows that
iu comparison with tbe previous
estimate of July 12, there is little
change in the total crop percentages.
In apples about 5 per cent, oj
52,500 boxes, decrease is,ebown.due
principally to tbe lack of water in
the Armstrong, Vernon and Penticton districts affecting the size.
In pears tbe percentage iB raised
slightly, due to an estimated in*
crease at Summerland and Nara
mata sections. Plums and prunes
have decreased 10 per cent from the
previous estimate of June 21. This
decrease is principally due to tbe
heavy drop in many orcbords of
prunes affected by gumming and
drought injury.
The crop generally is very clean,
of good quality aDd fair size, but is
maturing ear ier than usual. The
ripeniDg this season, in nearly every
instance, is from two to three weeks
earlier than normal, and growers
and shippers are advised to plan ac»
cordingly.
Weekly News
Letter From
(Associated
Vernon, August 18.—On various
occasions the question has been
raised as to tbe comparative merits
of the four-basket crate and the lug
as a package for cherries. During
tbe past cherry season we bave made
a careful study of this in the market
to determine whicb is the most de*
sirable package from the growers'
point of view Our representative,
J. B. Dickey, who had thie matter
in charge, has made the following
report, which will be of great interest
to aii growers of cherries and which
we quote in full:
The four basket crate is certainly
the most popular package with
grocers from the standpoint of increased volume of sales, and the
ease with wbich it is handled. Wben
well faced tbe customer is attracted
and in a great many cases a sale of
a basket is made where only a
pound or two would be purchased
were the lugs on display. It is a
case of increased consumption of
possibly 50 per cent as against tbe
lug with the Bame class of trade. Let
me point out bere tbat this is of
course mucb more in evidence when
tbe selling price is within the reach
of the ordinary customer. We might
as well admit that during tbe past
season the cherry was a ihxury to
most classes and waB not consumed
in like quantities witb tbe previous
two or tbree seasons I am referring
to Bings and Lamberts, as tbey are
the varieties most affected by tbe
lug We migb also include tbe
Windsor and Deacon, aB botb are
blacks of tbe dessert variety.
Frankly, I would say our present
volume of Royal Annes will never
be successfully bandied in lugs owing tbeir tenderness.
To be a popular seller the four
basket crate must retail at $1.00 per
basket. This means $2.40 per crate
f.o.b. Okanagan. At 75 cents per
basket to the consumer they go into
consumption very fre?ly; in fact, it
is then almost a crate purchrse.
This price would mean $1.40 f.o.b.
During tbe past season some dealers
retailed baskets at $.1.25, but the
majority asked $1.50, while fruit
stands sold in small lots at 35 cents
per pound. Some of them tried to
to bog it at 40 cents   and   45 cents,
but the great majority sold at 35
cents. At this figure tbey were not
making any killing, taking into con<s
sideration shrinkage and handling.
Tbe lug is essentially tbe fruit stand
package and will, I believe, become
more popular in time. It is only a
matter of playing tbe lug a little
stronger each season. Its chief drawback is tbe necessity of immediate
sale, us tbe fruit will not eland up
nearly as long as in tbe four-basket
crate, and, as we bave learned
tbrough disastrous experience, they
will not store i cold storage. Another feature which has caused much
trouble and loss iB the bottom board
being not quite wide enough This
cuts tl." fruit and decay begins
rapidly. This could be easily
remedied.
The fines! log reaching the market this season was partitioned in
the center and the fruit beatifully
faced. The box material was strong
enough and with a full pack there
w*B no damage, to tbe fruit although
tbe bottoms and Bids of tbe lug did
not meet closely. If we could put
out a similar package tbere ie no
doubt io my mind but tbat it would
go over strong During tbe coming
months we sbould have some of our
local staffs and some keen interested
person from central go thoroughly
into the question of tbe lug
package, as it will undoubtedly
mean mor money to the producer
and will find its place witb a certain
trade. However, we muBt not
overlook the trade which is getting
big distribution and paying us real
money for tbe four-basket crate.
In selling tbe lug it will be neces
sary to figure closely tbe difference
in weight and saving in cost of
package as against the four basket
crate, and make a spread of some
few cents arbitrary in favor of the
latter. In otbe words, we must
offer some inducement to purchase
the cheaper package.—Associated
Growers of British Columbia, Ltd.

Mars is now closer to the eurth than it has
been for a century, and a noted astronomer
says that it is inhabited by vegetable and animal life—and perhaps by human beings. As
it is likely to be auobher century beiore the
terrestrial daily press will be able to feature
the Martian divorce cases and beauty contests,
the inhabitants of this planet need not worry
abaut their supremacy over their distant prototypes.

knowledge. The story says that the devil had
a gossip with the saint through the lattice
window. Dunstan went on talking till his
t ngs, which were in the forge, were red hot,
when he turned around suddenly and caught
his satanic majesty by the nose. Dunstan is
represented generally in pontifical robes, but
carrying a pair of pincers in his righi hand.
The pontificals refer to his office as archbishop
of Canterbury, In which he died, and the pin
cers to the legend of his holding the devil by
the nose till he promised never to tempt him
again. The saint was buried in Canterbury
cathedral near tho altar.
The Osage river in Missouri is so crooked
that at one place a farmer floats his produce

Fogs in London are always more or less
dreaded and almost every dweller in the big
city has interesting fog stories *o tell. A city
fog is a more or less solid and tangible thing
as was proved by means of a large expanse of
glass in Kew Gardens. Just before a thick
fog settled down the authorities were enabled
to weigh it with some approach to accuracy-
After the fog had dispersed the glass was
carefully cleaned again, all the deposits—
mainly carbon and sulphuric acid—left behind
by the dirt-impregnated clouds being preserved. The we:ght of the fog was figured out
as six tons per square mile, which was quite
light compared with some fogs experienced.
The worst fogs lie low. The effect of a fog that
remains in the upper air, no matter how dense
it may be, is simply that of an ordinary night.
By descending the fog not only blinds, but injures the lungs with the poisonous matters
suspended in it.
Eefrigeration is a modern science that finds
many uses. In mining it overcomes two great
difficulties: the influx of water in porous formations and the heat of deep shafts., By freezing
the surrounding earth, miners can carry their
shafts through water bearing strata, and by
supplying themselves with cool air they can
penetrate the earth to great depths.
The little industrial town of Puteaux.France,
has attracted attention by building ten five-
storey apartment houses to be occupied only
by families in which there are children. The
apartments aro unusally attractive, and the
rents are less than a thousand francs a year,
which is cheap. Now that the way has been
pointed out, otlier Riench cities are planning
to follow the example of Puteaux.
REVKNUE iv-jeived directly from
timber dunuj the financial year
ending March 31st, 1923, benefited the British Oui umbia treasury
to the extent of$3,247,000. lhat U
io say, in one year the raw material
of the forest industries alone coutrib
uted this enormous sum to the run
ning expenses of the Province.
During the same period $2,526,000
income tax was paid by the citizens
of liritish Columbia, of whom a con
siderable number are timberholders.
It will ba noticed that the income tax
ia jnly 77 per ceut of the timber levy.
The question arises, what did the
tiinberholder get for the three and
a quarter million he paid to the
treasury?
The Dopartiuei t of Mines, accord
iag to the Government financial report of 1923, received $150,000 and
paid out $235,000. The Department
of Public Works" received $111,000
and paid out $2,744,000; the Depart
ment of Railways received $52,000
and paid out $129,000; the Depart
ment of Agrioulture received $31,000
and paid ont $437,000. The Department of Lands received $4,009,000,
of which $3,247,000 was revenue
from timher. Of this great sum less
than $700,000 was paid back in
fonst protection and the maintenance
of the forestry office.
The case of the British Columbia
timterholder constitutes a unique example of over taxation.
Two facts must be borne in mind.
Timber is only harvested once in a
lifetime and that there is no surer
way to kill a big competitive industry
than to overburden its raw material
with taxation.

Rutland is famous on account of being the
smallest county in England, The origin of the
name of the county has been a subject of considerable speculation. One legend says that a
certain Mercian king gave one of his favorites
named Jfut "as much land in this part of his
kingdom as he conld ride round in a day," and
named the aiea covered after him (Rut'sland).
This, however, is purely legendary. Neither
does the county derive its name from its circular shape, quasi Rotundalandia, or from
roet, the old Romance word for a wheel. The
most reasonable theory is that it derives its
name from the color of much of its ruddy soil,
one quarter of its arra being known as red
land.
Beautiful butterflies in great variety were
released in London parks last year as an added

summertime. It is said that twenty thousand
wen released in the various London parks

The Telephone Is a
Daylight Saver
Saving daylight is a big topic at this time of the
year. Everyone endeavors to make the most out of
the daylight hours. In these modern times, life each
day is fuller, and each hour must mean far more than
it did yesterkay.
There is no better aid to daylight saving than the
telephone. Nothing can help you more to make each
successive hour of greater value.
Whether you telephone one mile or one hundred
miles it is all the same to the telephone. The telephone
saves you hours. It lengthens your day, giving you
time for many things.

WESTERN CANADA'S RIVER OF WHEAT
ANEVER-HNDING stream of gold,
flowing from the farms of thc
Prairie Provinces to the consumers
of bread stuffs in all parts of the civilized
world, is represented by the movement
of the farmers' grain to the world mar-
kets. Beginning in August each
year and in some years flowing
constantly forward until August
of the following year, this everlasting river of wheat is Western
Canada's contribution to the feeding of the civilized world. In the
movement of this crop from the
country elevators and loading
platforms of the Prairie Provinces, the Canadian National
Railways year by year are playing a more important part.
Long before the western farmer
has finished his seeding in the
spring, preparations have been begun by the railways to move his
crop. Cars must be ordered, for
each year more equipment is needed
for the movement of the grain; other
cars, which have been in service,
must be brought into the repair
yards and overhauled or rebuilt according to their needs, for the movement of grain is a strenuous work
and grain cars show the effects of a
season's haulage. And, since cars
could not move forward without mo.
tive power, new locomotives of immense hauling power are necessary
and must be ordered, while those
which have already seen service in
this strenuous work must also be
So, as the
season approaches for

of the company through the western
region, compile a report on the
loadings and movements of grain
cars at the close of each day. These
reports are telegraphed to Winnipeg
where, with advices from the lake,
head and Vancouver, they are assimilated. Hence, with one' single
report simply compiled, the entire
Canadian National lines in the Western region almost continually, and
that every movement of these cars
must be checked in order that there
shall be no confusion or delay in
their handling, the enormity of tb*
work of handling the grain movement may easily be realized. And
to handle over 175,000 cars of grain
being prepared for the rush of the
harvest work. Constant vigilance
in this, as in every other great
movement, is the price of safety and
nothing is left undone to ensure that
the movement forward shall be
rapid, even, and unhampered. An
important department, whose work
is little seen outside of railway
circles, is the Car Service Department, whose eye is watching night
and day to see that grain cars are
properly distributed and that once
loaded, they move forward rapidly
to the lake or ocean port from which
further shipment is to take place.
During the grain rush each fall
the Car Service officials meet a difficult situation, for instead of an
even balance of haul back and forth
through the west, there is an over-

Nor is this all. In preparation for
the movement of heavy trains loaded with wheat and in order that
there shall be no delay en route
from the farmer's hands to the lake-
head or to Vancouver, roadbed and
other facilities must be in the best
possible condition. Therefore during
the summer months every foot of
the track over which the grain must
move is subject to careful inspection
and improvement; ballasting is done
wherever it may be required and all
parts of the system are keyed up to
the highest pitch in order that no
hitch may occur in the movement of
the crop.
Weeks before the crop itself bo-
gins to move, there is another movement under way which has an important bearing on the steady flow
of grain to thc markets of the world,
and this is the gradual concentration
of locomotives and grajn cars at
strategic points on the western lines,
so that they will be available for
rapid distribution Wherever they are
needed.
whelmingly large exodus from the
grain fields with a proportionately
small freight movement back toward
the prairies. Here the Car Service
Department faces the task of moving these empties back from the lake
or ocean ports, to line elevators at
the lowest possible cost and it is
only by wise and careful scrutiny of
the situation that it is possible for
this work to be successfully carried
out.
An elaborate system of tabulating
the grain situation daily is operated
by officials of this department. Rach day through
the press there appear reports on the grain movement, both on lines
through the west and at

shown by the fact that Canadian National car deliveries   to

Claims to Have Found
Copper   Secret  Lost
Two Thousand Years
James Cuniminge, of East St.
Louis, an obscure mechanic of little
education and practical!/n: scien
tific knowledge, has just succeeded
in richieving whet science hae been
trying t < do for more tban two
thousand years, according to a recent press dispatch from St. Louis.
He haa rediscovered the process for
hardening and tempering copper, a
secret tbat was lost with tbe pissing
of the Egyptian civilization.
Up till a sbort time ago Cummings was out of a job and broke.
Because of lead poisoning be was
forced to give up bis job as a rails,
way switchman and was at the
point wbeiehefpit he would have to
appeal to hie friends for funds to
help him care for bis wife and pix
children.
Today he is a millionaire tnrough
the receipt of a ch> que for $1,500,-
000 wbicb a Detroit copper company willi'ugly paid him for bis se.
cret.
It was while cleuning a copper
gasket for hie car, a low-priced
touriug car of long service and disreputable aspect, that Cummings
tripped upon the secret.
"It was just luck," Cummiogs
Baid. "I was cleaning the gaskets
and dipped them into a chemical
mixture I had figured out as tbe
b st for tbat purpose. One of the
gaskets was bent when I dipped  it.
1 was surprised when I discovered
later that it woold spring back to
its bent form wben I tried to
straighten it out.
"I didn't think much about it at
tbe time, but later I was talking to
some of the boys and told of the
occurrence. One of tbem wax sur*-
prised    'Jim,'   he  said,  'if  tbat'B
true, your fortune is made.'
"I reraimbered the mixture I had
in the basin and set about experts.
mooting till I found a mixture tbat
would give the copper a certain dej
gree of hardness. Then I decided to
patent tbe formula. This almoBt
cleaned out all my money. You see,
I was out of work at tlje time.
. "Then a copper company invited
me to Detroit to conduct some tests
there. All tbe tests were sutisfac-
tory, and 1 got a cheque that almost
knocked me cold, $l„-*.00,000."
He Understood Questionnaires
There is more than one way of answering a question so as to give people
an impression of your fundamental
intelligence. The boy referred to in
this story from the Argonaut knew it;
we are confident his answer got him
tiie job that ho wanted.
After a ruthless sifting there were
five applicants for tho post of enaud
boy left for thh head of tho firm himself to interview. It was one of bis
flippant mornings, and he sought to
amuse himself by asking the oager
boys puzzling and irrelevant questions
to test their knowledge.
"How far away from the earth is
tbe North Star?" was the question he
fired at the third shiny-faced young
ster.
"I'm sorry I can not give you the
exact figure, sir," was the reply,"but
on a rough estimate I should say it is
far enough away not to interfere with
my rnnning errands."
For tbe first time harvesters from
the Okanagan and central British
Columbia will enjoy a special rate
to the prairies this year. The labor
department, under Hon. A. M
Manson, has secured a general rate
of $10 to Edmonton or Calgary and
one-half cent per mile from there to
He tination. The same rateB apply

dudgeon from another shop and asked
for a job. We wanted to know, of
course, why he had left his old place.
"Ii was this way," he said, "the
boss was out walking with a lady the
other night and I passed him and
said, 'How do you do, Harry?' And
the next day he came around to me
and said,'When I am out walking
with a lady I don't want you to speak
to me.' I won't work for a man who
cts that way!"
