funds.
The water and light committee
recommended that a section of the,

that garden sprinkling be checked
up by one of the city employees;
that regulations as to hours of
sprinkling and nozzles used be strictly enforct|d, and that where persons
are found violating the regulations
the water service be cut off. The
recommemdationB were accepted by.

,OSTON, July 12—The key to
(the baffling characters of a
strange half-Setmetic, half-Egyptian language which flourished nearly
30000 years ago and which science
has never been aiblo* to decipher may
rest today with -Prof. Kirsopp Lake,
head of the Harvard-Michigan expedition to Mount Sinai, Arabia.
A terse; message front Prof. -Lake
to the Boston Herald reports newfound fragments ef the mysterious
"Sinai Inscriptions," which Harvard
university authorities said might
throw ah entirely new light on Moses
and (biblical history.
The - Sinai inscriptions were first
found more than twenty years ago
on the mountain where Moses received the tables of tbe law. They have
never been satisfactorily reud, although authorities have unceasingly
Bought their solution.
It Prof. Lake's "fragments" fit into
the existing gaps it was possible,
archeologists here said,, that they
might not only remake history but
reveal a new origin of modern languages.
The Inscriptions were discovered
in 1904 during the excavation of the
temple, of tiie Egyptian goddess, Ha-
tnor, on the side of Mount Sinai
They were carved on stone tablets
and images unearthed among ruins
of the temple and were ln a language
never befor encountered by excavators, according to Or. Henry Pfelffer,
Ph. D„ .instructor in Semetic languages at Harvard.
The characters, he said, were
strangely allied to Egyptian hieroglyphics and the later Semetic alphabet, yet were not identical to
eltrtyr,
Prof. Hubert Grinwne, a German
scientist, who has advanced a trans
latlon for the earlier fragments
which, however, has not been accepted by all investigators, believeis the
inscriptions represent a connecting
ling between the/ Egyptian and Seme
tic languages.

For this re-ason the scheme now

neqt autumn to ratify the proposed

MYSTERY BOX
LONDON, July 12.—'Hundreds of
persons, most of them actuated
by skeptical curiosity, witness-
de the prying opemat the church
house, Westminster, last night of
what the 'National Laboratory of
Psychical Research believes is the
mysterious "Joanna Southeett" box.
Nothing whatever of sensational Interest was found, although it had
bejen hoped there might be something
to throw light on thp announcement
of Joanna Southcott, the prophetess
who lived more than a century ago,
that she was to be the mother of a
new Meslth.
The 24 biBhops whom the prophetess prescribed should attend the
opening of the box were not there,
but one prejate—the Bishop of
Granthami—attended.
The flrst thing removed trom the
box was a pistol; then came a variety of things, including a woman's
night cap, ear rings, a dice box, a
lottery ticket of the year 1796, a bag
of coins, a diary of 1715, books and
manuscripts^-apparently just a collection of personal belongings kept
for the sake; o   old associations.
There has been considerable difference of opinion as to the authenticity of the box, the supporters o
the Joanna Southcott movement-, denying that it is the, right one1.
Joanna Southcott claimed to have
supernatural gifts, made prophetess,
and proclaimed herself to be the
woman mentioned in the Apocalypse
She died at the age of 64 in 1814.
She had a large following.

SUN'S WEEKLY TRAVELOGUE
TRIP from central Egypt to
Khartum, disclosing ' life
along the Nile and in the
desert, is one described by a recent
traveler. "We traveled south," he
writes, "ln a little white train, witli
blue glass windows to lessen the
shock of tbe rushing sunshine.
"Before we were a mile from the
station at Luxor the desert began to
assert itself. The temperature in
the coach climbed to almost unbearable heights; yet when we opened
the window for what we thought
would be a breath of fresh air, the
glare of the sun struck us like a
blow in the face. We had never conceived of such violent sunshine.
v "Late in the afternoon we reached
Shellal and transferred to a boat on
the Nile for Haifa, whence stretches
the railway to Khartum, completed
by Kitchener beteween 1897 and 1899,
when he made war on the forces of
Mohammed Ahmed, the 'Mad Mahd','
concentrated  at Omdurman.
"The Nile trip from Shellal to Hal-
fa lasted from 5 o'clock one afternoon
to noon of the second day. The boat
waB too small to permit the passengers to move about There wns nothing to do but sleep and eat, read and
talk.
"For half the distance to Haifa the
desert was saffron-colored, sienna,
burnt orange; in the high light of
noon it was golden. Most of us think
of the Sahara as composed of white
or gray sand. On the contrary, it is
colorful. Often the 'sand is broken
rock, and there are many ledges and
ridges. Everywhere the ground
heaves and swells.
"The desert Arabs Ilve In desperate
squalor, on the fringe. On what they
subsist ls more or less a mystery.
The Nile flows close by, but It Is not
used for bathing. Half the inhabi
tants seem to have sore eyes, and
the sightless ones are everywhere.
"The heat in the cabins of the
small boat was almost unbearable,
so we turned out at daybreak and
went on deck to breathe.
"We saw the sun rise over the desert. A huge brassy disk slid into
place with astonishing rapidity. One
moment there was a soft haze; the
next, a brigHt, hot sun assaulted the
land.
"Along the shore small palm trees
grew delicately out of the water itself and gently waved green branches at us. Off toward the horizon
were hummocks and pyramids of
crumbly rock. Nefar at hand an Arab
mud village sltpt soundly and odor-
ously. Swarms of wispy gnats
moved down from nowhere to settle
ln our hair for additional warmth.
- "The steerman, a Mohammedan,
came out of the, little deckhouse to
say his prayers on the roof of the
lower deck. It was the season of the
Feast of Ramadan.. He faced Mecca.
He stood. He lifted both gaunt hands
He dropped his hands. He bowed.
He kneeled. He prostrated himself.
He laid his forehead to the deck.
"The only animals we saw in the
desert were lean white camels. They
browsed and grazed, apparently on
sands hot enough to burn the skin
from one's hands.
"The banks of the Nile are a panorama of history. We passed Philae,
the ancient shrine of Isis, which
since the building of the Aswan dam
is' submerged almost half the year.
We passed a Roman fort higb on a
rocky and desert shore, set there io
watch over the barbarians while
Antonys romance with Cleopatra
flourished. .We passed a temple supposedly erected by Cleopatra herself
—in a lit of remorse, we presumed
to think.
"When we came to a temple °t the
Sun, carved out of rock, we were
given an opportunity to land, and we
entered Its cavernous depths at
night with torches that threw weird
shadows.

TTAWA, July 11.—Hon. James
Malcolm, minister of trade and
commerce, returned from Europe during the week-end and armed
with valuable first-hand information
as to developments of Canadian
trade in Great Britain and on the
continent.
He visited the various trade commissioners in England, Scotland and
Ireland and called the continental
commissioners together at Paris.
While no decisions have yet been
reached as to any changes in Canada's European trade policy, lt has
become clear to Mr. Malcome, it- Is
understood, that if Canada is to
take full advantage of the empire
marketing scheme more money will
have to be spent in advertising Canadian goods in Europe.
This will Include a more aggressive campaign for the marketing of
British Columbia apples and other
products of that province.
EMBE7RS of the Princeton board of trade formally launched on Saturday
a new drive to have the road com?
pleted from Princeton to Hope. Part
of the road ls good, other parts excellent and much is only horse trail.
A party went on horseback over the
proposed route.
The roa<l which Princeton wants
built will shorten the distance between tbat thriving town and Vancouver by 230 miles. The Princeton
board of trade looks to Vancouver
as its logical large trading .center.
Repesentatlons will be bade t othe
government to build the road.
Princeton people must now travel
via Ashcroft, Lytton and Hope to
get to Vancouver by motor. With
a road -through the mountains from
Princeton to Hope the distance will
be more than cut in half. The auto
distance is now 413 miles and the
proposed road would reduce it to 183.
The party who came through the
trail traveled by saddle horse with
a train of pack animals following,
carrying food, blankets, tents, etc.
One night was spent in the mountains, camp being pitched at Cayuse
flats. The distance traveled was 65
miles In tbe two days, Saturday and
Sunday, the first nine try motor car
and the remaining 56, miles horseback.
A party of four lower mainland
newspaper men made the trip. Po-
dunk Davis, who achieved fame by
finding Nurse Warburton, who was
lost in the mountains a month, was
the guide,
J. A. Brown, president of the
Prince-ton board of trade, was commander in chief of the party. With
him were P. W. Gregory, secretary
of tiie board, E. E. Burr, and Dr. J.

ASHINGTON, July 11—A
process for producing synthetic lumber, suitable for
panelling, Insulation, desk tops and
card tables, from sawmill waste is on
exhibition at the National Museum,
Smithsonian Institute). The development promises, to eliminate a
waste which has In the past run into
incalculable Bums, according to a
statement issued by the Smithsonian
Institute. A summary of the facts
and opinions stated by the government experts follows ln brief:
The use of steam to explode wood
chips into fibrei ts the ingenious process at the basts of a new method
for producing synthetic lumber from
sawmill waste. Specimens showing
stages In the manufacture; of the new
product are now on exhibition ln the
National Museum under tho Smithsonian Institute.
The fundamental proceiss consists
ln subjecting chips nf a uniform size
to a steam pressure of 800 pounds
for four or five seconds. Then by an
Instantaneous release of the pressure
the chips arc made to explode Into
millions nf fibres. The exploded fibre
Is refined, passed over a 5iurdrlnler,
similar to a paper machine, and
placed ln a press. Almost any desired
degree of hardness may be secured
by simply varying Ihe pressure. No
glue or other artificial binder Is
retiulred to consolidate the fibre. The
product ls all wood; It has a tensile
strength of from 4000 to 5000
pounds per square Inch; it is knot-
less, of very light weight, and a good
insulator.
The uses for which it Is said to
have already proved satisfactory Include desk tops, card tables, radio
panels, wallboard, panelling and Insulation.

KING HAROLD'S direct family descendant, Thomas W.
Goodwin, a farm  laborer near Berden, England, has
no   regrets as to the outcomq of the battle of Hastings,
which crushed the Saxon rule and deprived him of the
right to the British crown.   "William the Conqueror was
a hustler, I  Imagine  from what I hear," said Goodwin,
"and hustling counted, even in  1086, Just as it does today.   A castle means nothing to me," went on the farmer
whose ancestry goes  back in an unbroken line t oEarl
Goodwin, the father of King Harold, "and I am perfectly
satlsfle)d with my lot."   'Mrs. Goodwin, too, is contented
ln her thatched roof cottage—her home since babyhood
—40   miles   from   London.   There   are   threoj   children—
cyril, aged eight, Is known throughout the neighborhood
as ''Little King Harold,"   "Princess" is fourteen and her
sister, Catherine, is four.   Tht) Goodwins have relatives
in the United State-s, but they lost trace of them year
sago.   Goodwin first heard of the startling family news
this year from the parish vicar, Rev. Kynaston Hudson,
who for years has been looking np the genealogy of many
of   his    parishioners.   His lineage is vouched for England's Doomday book.   "I  thought at flrst that I might
gain a thousand pounds one way or another out of thi
'discovery' and then I'd buy some land," said Goodwin,
"but it appears now that I will never get a farthing, but
still I have no complaint to make."   Goodwin, who is 42,
earns about $10 a week.   His house rent is free.   He has
never owned an acre of land.   After the famous battle,
fought chie|fly with spears and  battleaxes, when Harold
and all his troops were slain, King Harold's family lost
everything and few of the Goodwins since have been
land   owners.   "I  have   heard   that,   since  my  anceetry
has    been    linked up with the last of the Saxon kings,
some of my neighbors rtaMirked that 1 was a high stepper," Goodwin chuckled to the inerviewer who followed
him agout a 14-acre field while- he drove a team hauling
a barley sower, "but the fact is I was always what they
Call a high stepper—I acquired that habit stepping over
furrows in the; field.   I had a look at Buckingham palace
once, but I prefer the old house on the hill, up there."
coronas, are! caused by water droplets. The smaller the
droplet, the .larger the ring. The other rings, the true
halos, occurring much farther away, are caused by Ice
crystals. There are several such Tings, but each one
always has the same angular size. This size depends
on the shape of the crystal (usually, but not always, a
short six-sided column with flat ends perpendicular to
the sides)' the course; of the light through the crystal,

TRUFFLES are the subterraneous fungi, and in Europe, especially in France, are collected quite extensively for food. While a fe wvarieties of truffles or related forms are.; found growing wild ln this country,
their cultivation is not a commercial proposition. It
is recognized that truffles grow especially in association with certain oaks, and some years ago the- department of agriculture imported and distributed two or
three species of tlnp0 oaks, but the Industry has never
really been developed in this country. Abroad ln regions wh'|re truffles are abundant, they are collected by
aid of a dob or pig, or small animal having having a
keen sense of smell. Truffle hunting ls an Important
business and requires considerable experience and
knowledge of forests.
HE IS still wondering what the young lady meant, if
anything. . Whcjn she happened along he was at
one endd of the line, the other end being far out in the
lake. "Fishing, J see)" said the girl. "Yes," responded
the young man. And then he added, in a jocular vein:
"Fish feeds the brain." Strolling along, the girl pleasantly called back over her shoulder: "I hope you have
a large catch."
TjITHAT is the main quality of a hero? Fearlessness,
'' isn't it? You'll say, in discussing the chief character a favorite book, "Why, there isn't a thing he is afraid
of." 'Often you wish that you were like hinu It's hard
to be absolutely unafraid. A courageous hunter of big
game, for Instance, who will face lions and tigers without a tremor, often will dread crossing a busy street,
tbrough traffic that you would navigate without o single
thought. IHe feels bate in the jungle, where he ls' at
home. A lion as big as a house couldn't scare him, but
ho loses his head in traffic because it is unfamiliar to
him. Most of your fears, if backed into a corner, will
turn out to be as thin as a halloween ghost. Next time
you are afraid of something, examine it from all angles
nnd see whether it is really as terrible as it seems, lt
probably won't be.

T1 HE Canadian department of marine and sherles has
■*■ marked a considerable number of Atlantic salmon,
by attaching silver tags to tbeir dorsal fine, for the purpose of tracing the movements of these fish. A salmon
that was marked and liberated off Burns point, Port
Maitland, Yarmouth county, iNova Scotia, on June 11,
was killed in the Moisie Quebec, in the early part of the
next month. If this fish took the most direct-route it
traveled in he vicinity of 800 miles, but If it followed
the larger indentations of the shoreline it traveled over
1200 Miles.

Up of theirown accord and only people with a profound
misunderstanding of human nature try to turn them out

f\ NE of the characteristics o'f French thrift is the de-
*-e gree to which holdings of bonds and stocks are disseminate^ throughout tho various elements of the population. A recent report of tbe federation of holders
of securities shows that state securities are held by
1,380,000 persons and railroad securities by 960,000.
These figures seem the mere extraordinary when it is
recalled that - in France there are less than 12,000,000
families.
MANY of tho parish churches of England and Wales
are beautiful, but the tower of tlio church at Wrexham, Wales, with its corner turrets high as medieval
fortresses, its splralets andd ddd crockets, intricate bands
and gracilful cornices, is a thing of astonishing beauty
and worthy to have graced a minister. As a noted traveler once said: "One cannot look at it without acknowledging a debt of de^p gratitude to thos0 who built it so
many centuries ago."
THERE still are traceB of the old Oregon trail to be
found in south western, Wyoming.but as time goes on
these are gradually being obliterated. The original
wagon road over_ which the prairie sohoone^rs of a bygone generation rumbled westward to their dream ol
empire; still can be traced; it runs for a distance ol
about ono hundred miles across southwestern Wyoming,
from the Big iSandy river at Pacific Springs, to Cokes
ville, on the Bear river, on the Idaho boundary. The
famous trail is now overgrown with sagebrush, so that,
in places, the wagon ruts can ge distinguished with difficulty. In many sections, the barbed wirel fences ol
tho ranchers cross the trail, and in the space that is
left, only an occasional sheep rancher's wagon Journeys. The new motor road known as the Old Oregon
trail, while following the general direction of the original trail, between Granger and Cokesville, thence across
Oregon to Portland, does not exactly coincide with the
original wagon road.
CIX/ICIA was the name of a maritime province in the
southern part of Asia Minor. It lay between the
Mediterranean and Syria, and_through it ran the great
biglvvli-y from Syria to the coast This gave Cllicia
great commercial importance during the several centuries when it was part of the Roman empire, as were
tbe adjacent districts of Pamphylia,- Lycaonia and Cap-
padocia. The principal city of CIDICIA was Tarsus
which was thr) birthplace of St. Paul. He was, as he
said, with pardonable pride in his girthplace, a citimen
of no mean city. About 90 years before the missionary
journeys of St. Paul, Cicero, the famous (Roman orator
and politician, was appointed governor ot Cllicia, and of
the adjacent island of Cyprus.

HE KNEW TOO MUCH ABOUT IT
A college professor, says the Argonaut, calling at the homfc of a
friend, was engaged in conversation
by the latter's daughter, who apparently fejt called upon to entertain
the guest. So she announced she
would tell him a story. "There was
once a man named Columbus," she
began, "an' a queen sent him on a
voyage, an' his ships were named
the Ninta, tha Pinta and—and—"
"rSanta iMaria," prompted the pro-
fesBor. "Yes, and the queen's name
was—was—" "Isabella," suggested
the professor. "Professor," demand-

"Well," remarked the) philosophic
grocer, "you can't please some people. Only yesterday she was complaining of the short weight."

radio electrical terms
that Are in common use
the words ampere, volt and ohm
are continually being mentioned in
connection with radio. In orderd to
dear Up any misunderstanding among
radio fans, somo simple definitions,
which are reprinted from Radio Broad
cast (Magazine, are given here. The
flrst two terms are explained by means
ot hydraulic analogier
Ampere—A current of water   in   a
pipe lg measured by the amount of
water that flows through the pipe ln a
second such as l gallon per second,
or 10 gallons per second, etc. Glee
trlclty is measured by the amount of
current that flows along a wire in one
second. This quantity is knewn as
the coulomb, and if this term ls used,
we would express the current as 1
coulomb per Becond or 10 coulombs
•per second, etc. In electricity, how
ever, we have a special name for the
rate of flow of 1 coulomb per second

which we call 1 ampere. Thus 8 am
peres is the same as 8 coulombs per
second. Ampere, then, is a term de
lining the quantity of current that is
flowing per unit of time.
Volt—The number of gallons per
second of water flowing ln a pipe, or
the number of amperes flowing in a
wire, depends upon the pressure under which it flows. The electrical unit -
of pressure is the volt. A volt means
the same thing in speaking of a current of eleotricity that a pound pressure means ln speaking of a current
of water. It follows then that the
greater the pressure (voltage) at the
supply, the greater will be the flow of
current.
Ohm—There is no hydraulic unit
which corresponds to the ohm, which
is a measure of the reslstence of a
wire to the flow ot current. A wlr
is said to have 1 ohm of resistance
when the pressure of 1 volt will cause
a current of 1 ampere to flow through
it If the resistance were doubled,
the current would be halved etc.
According to the deflinitions given
in /Radio Broadcast, then, we see that
amperes represent the amount of cur
rent, volts the pressure causing this
current to flow, and ohms teh resistance Impeding the flow of current
These three units bear a definite relation to each other. This relationship, named after the scientist who
discovered it, is known ns Ohm h Law,
which states that the number of amperes flowing in circuit is equal to
the voltage ot the circuit divided by
its resistance.

French River Bungalow Camp at
this Ontario resort, that he and his
mother, while paddling down the
River, past the golf course, struck a
muscalunge at.least four feet long
which was sunning itself near the
surface of the water. The muskie,
whicn was as surprised as the canoists,
leaped several feet out of the water,
then vanished from view.
French River station is on the
Canadian Pacific Railway, 216 miles
north of Toronto, 60 miles north of
Parry Sound, and 45 mileB south of
Sudbury. The Bungalow Camp is
attractively situated on an elevation
rommandinir a magnificent view of
the main channel of the French River
and within 200 yards oi the station.
In addition to the Bungalow Camp,
an outlying sub-camp is situated at
Pine Rapids, at the head of Eighteen
Mile Island, inthe heart of the best
fishing waters of the upper French
river.
It has as an adjunct Pine Rapids
Camp, which is 25 miles up the river.
These two camps accommodate
ninety people, anti there are plenty
of fish—muBcalunge, Great Northern
pike, pickerel, and small and large
mouth black bass. There are thirty
well built and comfortable bungalows
at the main camp, while Pine Rapids
has canvas houses built on wooden
floors. French River is 215 miles
North of Toronto.
Here is a tale told by Mr. Strathdee, about a "muskie" with a toothache. In August, this hig Iresh water
tiger needs a fish dentist. Last year
a visitor to French River hooked a
30-pounder which immediately dropped to the bottom of the river and
sulked. The knowing Indian guid*
tapped the rod with nis knife; the
vibrations went through tne pole,
down the line to the mouth of the
'muskie", and irritated one ot its
sore teeth. The muskie then leaped
clear of the water, and proceeded to
give tne fisherman a fierce fight lasting three-quarters of an hour:

LsL BOOKS are for the people,
but this article deals with
books provided for people in
the form of libraries undtir the auspices of governments, schools and
universities, or associations, in whicb
there has been a notablq development in Canada in recent years.
In  the  early history of the country,    although   there  are  records  of
several libraries of varying types, it
was not until the year 1800 that the
first  public  library  was  founded   in
Niagara.   During    the   first  part   of
the   ninete'enth   century  there   were
libraries  in  Quebec,   Montreal,  Halifax and Yarmouth, while there is a
record  of a  circulating    library    in
westurn Canada as far back as 1824.
Prior to, 1867 there were nine parish
libraries  in -Quebec,   the   first  being
an operation ,t|stablished   at   Boucheville   in   1802.
Grand  Forks j Ontario   was    tho flrst of the provinces  to legislate in respect of free
reading for the public, having in 1836
passed   an   act   to   assist  mechanics
institutes,  which  were really library
associations to which fees for users
of books were attached and this was
tlie most popular mtjthod until a considerable    time    after confederation.
Nearly every town  and city had its
Mechanics   Instill ie,   though  it   was
often  difficult of maintenance.   Free
public  libraries  wore  of much  lat€>r
dale and got their flrst genuine fillip
under   the  auspicoi  of the -Carnegie
endowments.   Quc.ec,   or  as  it  was
known then, Low :r Canada, in 1851
male legislative provision for library
associations   and    mechanics    institutes.   Later,    as    recorded in    consolidated statutes, every province of
tha Dominion, ine! iding the territory
of Yukon, has ai.'horlzed and made
regulations  for  tl.*  establishment of
free  libraries.      Generally speaking,
however, it was i ot until   tbe   late
eighties  that  puLlic  librarian began
lo demand attention.
cap!
In pioneer days, books of easy and
cheap access were a scarcq commodity, but the splendid achievements of
our public men reare-d ln those days
show how thoroughly and well the
comparatively few, but mainly of
high standard, were taken advantage of. These/ along with the closely and eagerly scanned weekly newspapers, and a few dailies, havo
formed an important element of the
educational ferment of tht* last sixty
years.
Today public libraries are as much
a part of the social and intellectual
life of the country as churches and
schools. In the west, owing to the
sparsely settled and widely separated communities--, traveling libraries
were instituted as part of the library
system. The first was established
ln Winnipeg under the auspices of
the Aberdeen association, though
the first on a systematic basis as
part or government organization was
undertaken in British Columbia in
1897. H
As educational, legal and other in-
stitutions developed, keeping pace
with the progress of Canada since
1867, libraries have expanded in an
almost amazing degree. At present
there are about 1000. Those of the
universities, of the state, and of the
large cities, particularly of Toronto,
in popular reading and for references
purposes in many departments count
their volumes by the hundreds of
thousands. iLibrarianship is now a
profession for which special training
is required, and for the purpose there
are two library schools in Canada.
The parliamentary from 2000 volumes ln 1840 now contains nearly
threie quarters of a million of volumes of all kinds.
A word as to the Carnegie libra
ries in Canada: Up to the year 1919
over three million dollars had been
promised for buildings to the number of 155, of which 114 had been
erecteid at a cost of $2,400,000.
Altogether books for the people
have had a great record during the
past half century.

Cop Report
A careful inspection of fruit and
vegetables crops in the Boundary
and Okanagan districts shown conditions to be better than at flrst anticipated, according to reports.
Weather conditions have been favor-
ble, and with several good rains, the
moisture conditions are very good.
With the season being two or three
weeks late, the Irrigation period will
be much shorter. However storage
supplies of water ln the Okanagan
are reported to be ample for the demand.
Regardless of the early frosts,
friuts are now setting better than
earlier predicted. Wherever the
trees are in good vigor and are receiving good care, the set is all that
could be expected. As a whole,
however, the crop might be termed
"patchy." Apples will work out
about 75 per cent of last year's crop,'
while pears will be less. Stone fruits
with the possible exception ot prunes
and plums will be much lower.
Cherries, sweet and sour, run about
40 per cent. Peaches and apricots
about 35 per cent. Small fruits will
be about the same as last year. Some
winter Injury on raspberries is apparent ln certain patches.
The plentiful supply of water
available for irrigation purposes
should have a marked influence on
the size ot all fruits. Considerable
thinning is now being done, with
growers endeavoring to work for
the medium sizes, which were the
bes sellers ln previous years.
More  attention) ls  being paid  to
potatoes,; cabbage, carrots   and   lettuce, with an increased acreage of
each to be found. Even ln onions con-|
siderable    consideration    is     being
given to the planting of sets, plants
and transplanting, with a   view   to
supplying the early market demand.'
The tomato acreage—will be about
the eame as laet year. Cold weather!
was hard on plants which were not
of good size and well hardened, but
at the present time plants are start-'
ing off well.
Onions: Acreage less than before.'
Poor germination and injdry from-
cutworms and onion maggots will'
greatly affect the yield.
Late potatoes: With weather conditions favorable, and good irrigat-j
Ing conditions, a good normal crop
of potatoes is expected in the Oka-'
nsgan, although this is not an 1ml
portant crop for that district
Oraln and hay crops, though later
than last year, are looking exceedingly well at this season. First crop
alfalfa is just being cut. Timothy is
stretching out fast. Fall wheat Ib
headed and will yield heavily.
Spring grain, wheat and oats, are
looking fine and with a little extra
moisture during heading, indications

The active immi(*ration season of
1927 that has just opened will see,
according to authoritative information given out by the Department of
Colonization and Development of
the Canadian Pacific Railway, tbo
largest and most effective addition to
Canadian population of any similar
period since the outbreak of the Great
War. In the opinion of authorities it
is not unreasonable for the Dominion
to expect over 200,000 new citizens,
or about 70,000 more than during the
year 1926. During this year Canada
received 135,984 settlers.
Several factors tend towards this
promised increased, of which one of
the most potent in the gradual evolution of systems and a development of
new machinery that has made tho
organization well nigh perfect. Further reductions in ocean and rail
rates from the British Isles have induced considerable numbers to submit to the examinations for acceptance under the cheap passage. Applications at the rate of several a day aro
being received, it is reported. Already
M«^
this year well over 1,000 settlers have
been landed in Canada by the
Canadian Pacific iiners plying between this country and the Motherland. It is intert ting to note that
about sixty per cer. t of the applicants
are miners and others who have some
knowledge of and experience at farm
work.
The volume of pertinent inquiries
from United SUies Agriculturists
with_ regard to western Canadian
farming prospects*, has been much
heavier this year than for some years,
is the report. Th:s is regarded as a
most reliable index to the trend of
the movement. A r ew and significant
movement to deve' ip however is that
of tobacco growers from Worth and
South Carolina, Virginia and other
states to Western Ontario, being
attracted by the rosy prospects now
facing the Canadit.il tobacco growing
industry.
Though lana settlement conditions
have drastically changed and the
tendency is to place newcomers on
vacant lands within reasonable distance of the railways, it was pointed
tw £., TasJ- n*«-tal-e to consider
that humesteading is altogether a
thing  of the  past  as a factor of
