Former Dentist of Grand
Forks Dies Suddenly
Dr. H. F. Simmons, dentist, prao
tioing at Anyox, wbo formerly
practiced in Grand Forks for a short
time, was a passenaer last week on
tbe steamer Venture, northbound,
and died suddenly two hoars before
the boat reached Ocean Falls early
Sunday morning.
The remains were brought ashore
and are at Ocean Falls, wbere an inquest will be held. Dr. Simmons
was a Mason, belonging to tbe
Greenwood lodge.
Dr. Simmons is survived by his
widow, who is at the family residence at Burnaby, two sisters, Miss
Edna Simmons and Mrs. A. Little-
hailes of Vancouver, a son, Dr.
Harry S., a dentist in Vancouver,
and four brothers, Thos. U , who
is attached to tbe Dominion railway
board, S. Dow, now visiting at h s

and Bruce, who are now in the east
young bees produced were dark

bad been mated by tbe local black
drones. Attempts were tben made
to mate the queens late in the day
wben tbe undesirable drones bad
ceased flying and also late in tbe
season wben tbe drones hsd died,
Tbe results gave valuable information, but they did not solve the
Next, a part of tbe north country
that bees bave not -Cet reached was
tried, the experimental farm at Ka-
puBkasing in northern Ontario being
selected, but here the little colonies
were made restless by the great and
sudden changes in temperature, and
swarmed out when tbe queens flew.
In 1919 experiments were started
on Ducb island, which is situated
near the eastern end of Lake Ontario, and is eight miles from tbe
nearest island and eleven niles from
the mainland. Duck island covers
only about two square miles and no
bees exist upon it. The Duck island
experiments were continued in 1920
and bave proven successful, twenty-
seven Italian queens of selected
parentage having been mated by the
drones that were brought with them.
By continuing the work it is
hoped to develop a strain of Itaiian
bees tbat will be beavy hooey producers and disinclined to swarm,
Meanwhile plans are advanced to
distribute to Canadian beekeepers a
limited number of daughters of the
best of tbe queens mated on Duck
island, and a system has been
worked out by whioh a beekeeper
will be able to mate a proportion of
the queens he gets witb drones of
the same strain.—F* W. L. Sladen,
Dominion Apiarist.
Nearly every domesticated animal
•nd cultivated plsnt has been improved by selective breeding. Witb
bees, however, not much progress
haB yet been made because of the
great difficulty in isolating them.
Tbey mate in tbe ajr at some distance from the hive,' and it is known
that the drone bee will fly for miles
in search of tbe queen bee.
It might be thought that the busy
bee eould hardly be improved, but
Canad& contains varieties of solitary
bees whose tireless industry make
the honey bee appear dilatory in
comparison. Besides, we know that
great improvements "await tbe bee
breeder, because some colonies store
mucb more honey and are less in
dined to swarm than others. Any
beekeeper would give much to have
hia apiary composed of such superior bees.
The experimental farms branch of
the Dominion government has for
some time been conducting experin
merits to overcome the difficulty of
the isolated mating of bees. Tbe first
attempt waB made on a large sandy,
plain near Kazubazua, about forty
miles   north   of  Ottawa, at a spot
where no colonies of bees could be I      _

eggs during tbe preceding 365 days.
She was batched on March 25, 1920,
and commenced to lay in October. |
She waa placed in a permanent laying house and trap-nested from November 1. The following is her

Emphasizes Need of a
Tariff on Fruit
Fernie, Jan. 19.—At a meeting of
the Liberal executive for East Kootenay bere yesterday the resignation
of R. E. Beatrie as member of parliament fo: this constituency was
accepted. A nominating convention,
it was announced, would be held
shortly at some central point to select a successor, non. Dr. King, it
is stated, will likely be offered tbe
Tbe Conservative executive of the
riding, it is learned, at a recent
meeting decided that if Dr. King
was given the Liberal nomination
there would be no opposition, bu t
that if Dr. King is not tbe Liberal
standard-bearer a Conservative candidate, probably Dr. S. Bonnell,
will be put in the field.
R. E. Beattie, wbo is retiring, is
suffering from a physical break -
down, which will necessitate his ab-
,ence to seek treatment. Even before
the election he was in poor health ,

Ottawa, Jan. 19.—Tbe retirement
of R. E. Beattie, M.P. elect for East
Kootenay, B.C., will open a constituency for Hon. J. H. King, who is
slated for tbe portfolio of public
works in the federal government. It
is pointed out here, however, that
the only way in which Mr. Beattie
an, at this juncture, render the
constituency vacant is by accepting
a place of profit under tbe crown.
This course was followed by A. C.
Casselman, member-elect for Grenville, to make way for the candidature of Right Hon. Arthur Meighen.
Otherwise Mr. Beattie will have to
wait until the opening of parliament and a speaker is chosen bef re
he can tender hiB resignation.
Dr. King was in Vancouver yesterday, and stated that he was on
his way to Ottawa to definitely ac
cept  the portfolio of public worka.
Extension of the Granby
Vancouver, Jan. 18.—An aggressive polioy of plant extensions and
improvements at Anyox and elsewhere is contemplated by tbe Granby Consolidated Mining, Smelting
and Power company, according to
H. S, Munro, general manager of
the company, who has just returned
from New York. While in tbe east
Mr. Munro consulted with directors
of tbe company as to tbe program
for tbe ensuing year.
Copper prices are likely to hover
between 14c and 15c per piund for
the greater part of this year, in the
opinion of eastern copper men, Mr.
Munro states. The price is likely to
increase between now and April or
May, but when the big American
producers, whose plants have been
closed down for some months past,
get into their stride the market is
likely to sag slightly, competent observers think, he says. The price
situation would be materially
changed by any unexpected large
orders being placed for copper, but
no such ordere are at present in
prospect, in his opinion.
Mr. Munro will return to   Anyox
on Monday.

Victoria, Jan. 18.—"If the custom of giving visitors to our city a
golden key still prevailed, I would
give it to you," Mayor Marehaat
informed British Columbia fruit
growers when their tnree-day con •
vedtion opened today. It is the
growers' thirty-second annual meet*
C. E. Barnes, formerly of Wai-
lachin, in his presidential address,
said one of the most important
issues before frnitmen was possibly
early legislation to revise the cus •
toms tariff.
"Whatever individual views may
be held on the general principle of
protection," Mr. Barnes said, "we
can not escape from the fact that
any legislation in the direction of
lower duties is full of possibilities of
inconceivable disaster to the fruit
industry. To ensure any measure of
success the result of your deliberations on this subject must be bared
on sound judgment, justice and
equity, and must bave tbe loyal
support of the whole industry."
Dealing with the anti-dumping
clause, Mr. Barnes stated that tbe
enforcement of the clause had prevented tbe utter demoralization of
tbe overstocked market by tbe importation of foreign fruits at prices
lessthan tbe cost of production. The
president said the clause was the
only effective one ever enacted in
Canada to prevent dumping.
Warning the growers against the
fruit pests, he observed: "Wemight
exercise greater vigilance and employ more drastic methds of pre
vention and control."
In this connection he urged practical effort to keep tbe codling moth
out of the orchards of British Columbia.
The speaker went on: "Tbe volume of fruit production in British
Columbia has outgrown the normal
consumption of our home markets.
From this time forward we must
find new and necessarily distant
markets for a constantly increasing
proportion of our crops, where we
will be forced to compete witb the
best that tbe world can produce.
Nothing but our best can be Bent to
distant markets."
The grower wbo learned tbe export lesson first would be tbe man
to secure an adequate return for hit
labor, Mr. Barnes declared. In thia
connection be pointed to tbe necessity for a good pack and amendment
to the Fruit Marks act. Ho mentioned that a conference would be
called to consider amendments next
month. Some of the suggested
changes would be submitted to the
conventfon, be added.
Recommendation wus made by
Mr. Barucs for the establishment of
local branches where conditions
made sucb an arrangement practicable. He indicated that a constitutional amendment would be necessary to bring about this result.

The Grand Forks Son,
Phokb 101R Graud Forks, B. 0,
President Barnes, of the Frui^ Growers as
sociation. in his address before the Victoria
convention, seems to have laid a great deal of
stress on the importance of a high protective
tariff on fruit.   In fact this portion of his remarks had a decided political flavor.  Not all
the fruit growers are a unit as to whether protection is a blessing or a curse.   Some ofthe
most successful growers in this valley have ex
pressed a preferance for taking their chances
in competition with the American  orchardists
in an open market rather than to have their
products confined to a restricted field. Whether
they are right or wrong in   the stand they
take probably only  an   actual   test would
demonstrate. It seems to be a reasonable sur
mise, however, that if the fruit tariff wall be
tween the two countries should be battered
down, the American grower would  have an
advantage in the early part of she season, because his fruit ripens earlier than on this s'de
of the line; but the American fruit at that
season of the year enters Canada anyway,
tariff or no tariff, and the Canadian consumer
has to pay the extra cost.    With the later
varieties, in an unrestricted market, the Canadian grower should reap the benefit.    His
apples ripen later, and they are of superior
keeping quality to those produced   in   the
States.   The tariff controversy is a convenient
peg on which to hang all the failures of the
fruit growing industry.   But the present season has demonstrated that there are other elements which can accomplish this result far
more effectively than the tariff.
in the world today, the very incarnation of
shrewd, able, ruthless, insatiable greed. He
comes near owning all that is worth owning
in Germany; and through his possessions and
bis powerful force he has become also the
most powerful political figure there. His
brain is bursting with endless plans for making money. Now, we are told, he has a tre
mendous scheme for an international syndicate, 'including German, British, American,
Dutch and Danish capital, which is to get in
"on the ground floor' and seize all the trade
of awakening Russia. The idea is so grandiose
that he can not find cash or credit enough in
Europe to float it, and so he means to go over
to the States and interest the business men in
it. Herr Stinnes will be an interesting person to observe at close range.

Nothing Else is Aspirin—say "Bayer"
The Canadian merchant marine is a Canadian institution, built with Canadian money,
operated to further and facilitate the foreign
commerce, of this country. Somehow or other,
a report was circulated to the effect that
"outsiders" were employed by the Canadian
merchant marine to the exclusion of Canadians and British subjects. In denial of th s
report, the management of the Canadian Na
tional railways offer the statement that of the
1674 employees on the payroll at December 31, 1921, exactly half were Canadians by
birth or adoption and the balance were of
British birth. It is the invariable practice of
the management to employ only British sub
jects in the management and operation of this
government-owned line of steamships.
Back we go again to the primitive ways of
our ancestors. This time it is garlic that
medical practice is seriously taking up as a
cure for colds and even for influenza and tu
berculosis. But garlic is a bit strong for refined
modem taste; so it has been denatured and
disguished until it is as hard to recognize as
its new name—trimethanal allylic carbide, or
T. A C. for short.
Warning! Unless you see name
"Bayer" on tablets, you are oot Ket
ting Aspirin at all. Why tako chances?
Accept only an unbroken "Bayer"
package whioh contains directions
worked out by physicians during 21
years and proved safe by millions for
Colds, Headache, Earache, Tootaohe,
Neuralgia, Rheumatism, Neuritis,
Lumbago, and Pain.  Made in Canada.
All druggists sell Bayer Tablets of
Aspirin in handy tin boxes of 12 tablets, and in bottles of 24a nd 100.
Aspirin is the trade mark (registered
in Ctnada) of lUyer Manufacture of
Monoaoeticaoidesteti of Salicylicacid.
While it is well knowh that Aspirin
means Bayer mmirfacture, to assist

Tablets of Bayer Company will be
stamped with their general trade
mark, the "Bayer Cross."

If there were no islands in the Pacfic there
would probably be no Pacific problem, but in
an immense ocean coaling points for ships and
relay stations for telegraphic communications
become of the utmost importance. Strategically Hawaii is the recognized key to supremacy
in those waters. It is difficult to cross the Pacific without finding it convenient to touch at
Honolulu. Far from being unprotected, as
many people seem yet to believe, the islands
since 1914 have had at Pearl Harbor a naval
base second to none in the world, and one
fairly to be considered as impregnable.
A dab of molasses on a stick will enable
you to discover whether there is any water in
gasoline. Minnesota oil inspectors used the
test last year with satisfactory results. Water
is heavier than gasoline and sinks to the bot
torn. The molasses will pass through the
gasoline unaffected, but as soon as it encouu
ters the water some of it comes off the stick
and so reveals the dividing line between the
water and the gasoline.
The attractive one-storey school buildings
that the city of Cleveland is constructing are
as nearly fireproof and panicproof as any
building can be, Of the many interesting things
about the new type of school building, the
most notable are that there is no basement
and that the heating plant is in a separate
structure in the rear. Because the new style
of building does away with basement, stair
ways and much ofthe space usually devoted
to corridors, it costs less per pupil than two-
storey or three-storey buildings.
Welsh bituminous coal has made its appearance at several cities of the Atlantic sea
board at $5.00 a ton. A cargo in New York
sold recently at approximately $4.50, as compared with a minimum 'of $5.65 for domestic
coal. The coal is carried as ballast, free of
transportatiou charges, and so can be sold at
a profit over the actual cost of mining.
It is said that Hugo Stinnes, the German

The demand for more frequent service on
branch lines where passenger traffic is not
heavy is something the railways have long had
to contend with. The heavy expense of run
ing frequent trains to accommodate a limited
number of passengers on branch lines h
given railway men food for thought. The
Canadian National railways, on its Brockville
& Westport division, has for some time beeu
experimenting with motor diriven railway cars.
Instead of the regular ei gine and heavy train
of passenger coashes, the road has adopted
equipment much like a motor bus, which runs
on the roil way tracks. It is operated by one
man, gives a frequent service, and so far appears to be extremely successful. If continued
use proves satisfactory, the plan will be adopted on other branch lines of the government

Attention is being directed towards the
country's natural resources as never before,
since it is generally recognized that only by a
more widespread utilization of Canada's undeveloped lands, mines, forests, waterpowers
and fisheries can present-day economic prob
lems be solved. The natural resources- intelligence branch of the department of the interior has published a map showing the leading natural resources of each provinoe. In
Nova Scotia mixed farming, mining and fishing, predominate; in Prince Edward Island
fur-farming and agriculture. New Brunswick
has large areas of timber, while mixed farming and fruit growing are outstanding interests.
In Quebec may be found a wealth of timber
for pulpwood, also minerals such as asbestos,
graphite and molybdenite, while in Ontario
somewhat similar opportunities exist. In the
prairie provinces the prospective settler or investor may obtain adequate returns on capital
and labor in either grain growing, mixed
farming or ranching, while in British Columbia timbering, fishing, fruit growing and mining are among the leading industries. In addition to information on natural resources, the
map shows all railways and trade routes. An
interesting and valuable feature is a series of
comparative diagrams illustrating the production and exports of the various provinces. A
copy of the map may be obtained free of
charge upon application to the natural resources intelligence branch, department of the
interior, Ottawa.

Street Station in Montreal. Some
time ago the Natural Resources
Exhibit In one of the entrances
was beautified and enlarged, many
new products of the country being added, so that now it is one
of the finest exhibits of its kind in
the world. Hitherto the spacious
main entrance which in years gone
by was part of the ticket office, was
used merely for traffic, a large
space on each side being more or less
>   waste ground.
■      With a view to providing increased
• facilities for the convenience of the
; travelling public the space that waa
S formerly unused ln tne main en-
J trance has been converted into a
; service depot. Here persons hasten-
S   ing to a train or returning from a
• trip may   supply   themselves   with
• various requisites without having to
; walk an extra step outside the build-
; ing, or take the trouble usually
;   taken   to procure   these   requisites.
The new departure might be called
a service-on-tha-way d-wel      	
passengers to and from the trains, i
The new depot will not ln any way
interfere with the existing newsstand in Windsor Street Station
which will continue as usual. However, it is likely that the new ser-
vice-on-lhe-way depot will consider
ably relieve the congestion thtti
there used to be around Uie new*
stand, particularly at train times.
Though always imposing, the ap»
pearance of the entrances to Windsor
Street Station has been considerably improved by the remodelling
that has recently taken place. Itt
the most delightful atmosphere,
those who have some moments tes
spare previous to train departure^
can amuse and interest themselves
in viewing thc wonderful exhibition
of natural resources in one of the
entrances.       **
In selecting the t K)ks which will
be available for th. travelling p-.-b-
lie, it ha? boon decided to pay special
attention to '.he fiction by Canadian
authors, a policy which is b ::ig
adopted generally all over tho Can.-)
