British Columbia's Markets Commissioner Reviews the Past Week's
J. A. Grant, British Columbia
markets commissioner at Calgary,
reviews the pist week on the prairies from a fruit marketing point of
view as follows:
Calgary weather hae been warm
with showers. Prairie crops are
looking excellent. Many seasonable
fruits are arriving on this market.
Gooseberries are improving in quality, but the movement is slow and
sales are difficult to make. Most of
them are coming bere on consignment. Shippers of gooseberries must
be prepared for low returns. The
same conditions exist in regard to
small sized" cherries. Good black
cherriesare bringing 75c per 4 Ib.
basket retail, while tbe Richnionda,
Woods, etc, are stilling from 25o
Up. A consignment of 15 crates of
strawberries arrived here from Craw
ford Bay; the crates did not appear
to be stundard strawberry crates,
tbe lid fitting dowu on the berries
too tight. Shippers Bhould com
municate tbeir intentions to.consign berries before shipments are
made, otherwise contusion and loas
will follow. Quite a number of Jap-
anese srom Hammond are consign
ing strawberriee, Tbe consignments
have fallen off considerably from
last year at Lower Mainland points.
Okanagan L. C. L. has increased
and will not improve matters there
The first crate of raspberries from
British Columbia arrived in Calgary
on June 29. Tbey came from Mr.
Taylor of Mission and were sold by
the Vernon Fruit company at #8.
Sugar took another cut in the price
tbis week aud is now retailing at 1 lc
per pound. We again wish to point
out to British Columbia small fruit
growers tbat tbeir only salvation is
shipping as a unit to tbe prairie
market. The Saanich Fruit Growers' association being outside of tbe
centralized distribution has resulted
in loss to tbat association witb coin
sponding loss to others.

tice have not a selling value sufficiently high to permit of a labor exj
penditure equal to more than 50 per
cent of the selling price of the product. With seliing prices for food
products too frequently on the decline, with labor charges and general overhead charges comparatively
steady, the prospect of profit iB not
always encouraging. Where selling
prices vary as much as 600 per,cent
in one year fof certain commodities,
those who are forced to sell as the
lower level are not likely to receive
sufficient for their produce to pay
tbe labor bill.
With little or no control on the
price at which a food product must
sell from the farm, tb? adjustment
of the labor cost of optr tion is ap
parently the most likely way to obtain relief. Tbe intelligent use of
crop rotations io farm practice,
more extensive use of properly de
veloped meadows and pastures,
more grazing by live stock, more
extensive use of farm machinery,
proper use of every field, fewer and
larger fields and permanent crops
where possible, are some of the ways
that will lead to reduction in labor
Has Definite Views;
Bobbed Hair and
"Blondes" Must Go
Hartford, Conn., July 7.—Arti
iicial blondes and girls with bobbed
hair nave no (.lace ih this company,
•F. K. Daniels, president of an insurance company employing 3000
women throughout iha country, told
the United Press today.
The company recently issued
mandate that no more artificial
blondes or bobbed heads would be
employed aud that employees already in either category would ba**ve
to get back to normalcy as rapidly
as possible.
"Artificially blonde hair is a sign
of Jight headedness," Daniels declared. "Blondety is a mark of lack
of intelligency. If any more bobbed
haired girls or blondes get into our
offices they will have to crawl
through the keyhole.
"There are some in this office now,
but we are going to get rid of all of
them as Boon as possible.
"Tbe Swedish blonde is pretty,
even if she bobbe ber hair, and she
Is studious. It iB the brunette who
uses peroxide who gets me.
"'Business researches have proved
that 90 per cent of blondes are use-
less. All women who bob their hair
are useless. Some say they bave cut
tbeir hair to avoid the heat, but
can tell you tbere is a hotter place
waiting for them.
"My ideal of a business woman is
one who haB had two or three years'
college work, does not powder her
nose, does not watch the clock, does
not rouge ber cheeks, aod does not
smoke cigarettes.
"I can tolerate the woman who
lays aside her corset. That is comfort. But it is carrying comfort too
far to bare one's self in bobbed hair,
I think the movies are responsible
for girls doing this.
"I don't wish to give the impression that women sbould neglect
their dress I believe business wo
men should be attractively garbed
in pure business style, the same as
business men."

In tbe great majority of agricul

costly or money consuming factor.
The more intensive the work in

the expenditure of labor for eacb

markets wijl warrant high labor ex
penditures, then all well and good;
expend all labor within reason, or
whatever the selling price of the
product warrants. Hawever, special
conditions tbat justify heavy labor

SpecUd Correspondence of The San.
Victoria. B. C, July 6.—According to the annual report of Hon.
William Sloan, minister of mines,
the total mineral production of tbe
province for tbe year 1920 was $35,.
543,084, an increase of over two millions more than in 1919. The placer
gold produced was worth $221,500,
lode gold 82,481,392, silver $3,325,-
960, copper #7,832,899,lead $2,816,-
115,zinc $,077,979,coal $12,975,625,
coke $475,544, and miscellaneous
priducts $2,425 950. Tbe coast dis
trict, including Nanaimo, Alberni,
Clayoquot, Quatsino, Victoria and
Vancouver, led all others by "a large
margin. East Kootenay came second, Cassiar third, West Kootenay
fourth, Boundary-Yale fifth, and
Cariboo sixth.
Hon. Mr. Sloan in bis report says:
It is extremely gratifying tbat British Columbia's mining industry has
been eo well maintained, notwithstanding the fluctuating market,
and despite generally unsettled conditions.
Total daily sales of spirituous
and malt liquors under government
control are riaing rapidly, and the
commissioners anticipate a daily
turnover within a few weeks of
$25,000. New stores are being
opened this week at Nelson and
Chilliwack. Immense stocks of
liquor have been ordered, and it is
hoped there will be a sufficient variety Jo satisfy all buyers.
Denying a report in tbe Vancouver Sun to tbe effect that construction work on tbe P.G.E. was being

finances will permit. Steel has now

Characteristic Irish
3tory of Banking
•The following characteristically
Irifh story is going the rounds of tbe
British newspapers:
The Dael Eireann ordered the citizens of Enniskerry, a prosperous
community near Dublin, to remove
their accounts from the only local
bank, a branch of a Belfast institution. By noon on the day set for the
run the bank's money was nearly
all gone, most of the depositors having taken their money out and put
it in the poat oflice savings bank.
The managers was iu a desperate
state and about to put up the bank's
shutters, wheirhe heard a knock at
the ba :k door. It was the postmaster with a sackful of notes and silver
wbich he wished the banker to keep
for bim, as be had no safe place to
put it. The money was deposited to
tbe postmaster's account. The run
continued, and as quickly as the
mouey went out the front door the
postmaster returned it by tbe back.
After a while the requests for withdrawal stopped, tbe people concluding tbat there was no end to tbe
bank's resources, and that it was a
much stronger institution than they
had ever imagine.1.
According to a statement made
by J. A, McKelvie, M.P. for Yale-
Caribo, io the Peuticton Herald this
week, a general election tbis falljnay
be looked for. "My visit to Penticton is for tbe purpose of consulting
tbe association executive with regard to local affairs and also to assist in completing its organization,"
said Mr. McKelvie. "There is a possibility of a general election this fall,
althought I do not consider a Dominion contest probable. To me indication*, are tbat there will be another session, but there is no guarantee of that."
Forty New Forest Fires;
Gampers Are Warned
To Be Very Careful
Victoria, Jujy 6.—Forty new for*
est fires were reported at various
points throughout the province during the past week, according to the
weekly report by the forest branch
of the provincial department of
lands. Conditions were, however,
reported as generally safe with show-
era at many points, though indications point to drier weather.
Tbe number of firss reported increased from 241 to 281 for tbe sea-
eon to date, an increase of 15 per
cent, with additional cost of fighting
fires of 18 per cent.       *
In view of the fact that campers
are leaving in increastng numbers
for the woods, the department urges
that every care should be taken by
tbem in lighting fires.
Conditions in tbe variour districts
are reported as follows:   Cranbrook,
twenty six fires to date, with   very
warm weather, thunderstorms, high
winds and   local   showers; Vernon,
twenty five, cool, heavy rain;   Nelson,   forty, showery, all   fires   out;
Kamloops, forty-three, heavy  rains
general, very cool; Vancouver, fifty-
six, cool, frequent   showers,  conditions good; Cariboo, thirteen, showery,   Prince  George,   forty one, all

Whether the trend of women toward men's
occupations and psychology will be bad for the
race deponds on how far. it goes.   The ideal
race is one in which women have about 40 per
cent of the man in them; the men about 40 per
cent of the women in them.    The man who  is
100 per male is a brute, a hunter, harsh, nn-
inspired,   elemental.    He has no regard for
beauty, or art, or culture.   He makes war   at
the slighest provocation, and wages the war of
the jungle. He needs to be ripened, mellowe d,
civilized,   balanced   by the feminine gifts of
sympathy, intuition, social grace, imagitiatio n
desire of beauty and art.    The 100 per ce nt
female is a useless, soft, clinging, incompetent
creature, characterless, spineless, ill'adapted
to   bear   the   hardships and complexities of
motherhood.    She   lacks initiative; courage,
strength, endurance.   She gains immensely by
an admixture of man in  her  character.    Imagine an evolution in which woman so  approached man in character that she real zed
what some misguided women are aiming at—

attacked him in the woods a mile from his

other, he fought it off until he worked his way

An officer of the British army, Maj. Frederick de T. Craven, would not only increase
the kinds and quantity of the game animals in
the United States but would add humor to
the sport. He suggests that the yak be transplanted from the Himalayas to the Rocky
Mountains,' and that river buck, wart hogs
and swamp hogs be brought from Africa and
released in the swamps of Mississippi and
Louisiana. The water buffalo of the Orient he
thinks would also thrive there. He would
stock regions that are now useless with game
animals of considerable value. But* think of
the fun that the newspapers would have with
the yak and the wart hog!
We sometimes assnmc that freedom from
disease or physical defects means health, but
this is only one part of the story. There are
thousands and thousands of children*and
adults that are not really ill and have no seri
ons physical defects, but have only energy
enough to drag themselves through Kfe, to
exist physically. They do not have a reserve
force to meet the emergencies of life or to ac
complish the things that are most worth while.
They are destined to become ill from time to
time and in most cases to be a serious burden
to society. In order to prevent disease and
physical defects and to promote right habits
of living, which play such an important part
in building up robust health, we must start
with the children and devote more time to
health and education. And while it may be
conceded that the teaching of hygiene is nee
essary, the need of playgrounds far overshadow
it in impojtancc. Health is gained in the out
qf-door and sunshine, and all the theoretical
hygiene in the world will not produce strong
A young man should not grieve that he has

Among the predecessors of modern patent
medicines were such astonishing nostrums as
Goddard's drops, a formula in vogue during
the reign of Charles II, which consisted of
distillate of "human bones or rather scales";
dried mummy, a gruesome preparation that
unscrupulous persons frequently imitated; and
a medicine that one Joanna Stephens prepared
in 1739 for "the cure of the stone" by calcining eggshells and garden snails. The credulous
in every age have proved easy victims for those
who sell spurious remedies for any or all human ailments.
Impure milk is notoriously one of the  most
fertile sources of disease, especially among in
f'ants and children; and it is well understood
that most of tho impurities come from   improper   haudling.    "Certified" milk—that is,
milk drawn from healthy cows kept" in  sanitary stables, ahd that is cooled,  bottled and
transported  under conditions   approved   by
some responsible organization such as a medical society—is greatly in demand in the large
cities. Where ordinary milk brings 15 cents a
quart, certified milk brings 22 or 2'.i cents and
is hard to get even at that price.   Tho  most
urgent need is for the farmer to understand
what the city dweller wants and to supply  it.

Count Kayserling, a German philosopher of
some distinction, has established at Darmstadt
in Hesse a "school of wisdom" that he means
to conduct after the manner in which Plato
and the later Greek philosophers conducted
the famous Academy at Athens. Among the
men who are to assist him is Sir Rabindranath
Tagore, the Hindu poet, who has declared his
opinion that a defeated and humiliated Germany is the best home for a school of philosophic thought that shall combat the materialism and violence to which Western civilization has fallen a victim. The school is not in
tended for Germans alone; its founders hope
to attract to it seekers for truth and wisdom
from every part of the world.

It is a striking fact that Mount Everest is
almost the only one of the great Himalayan
peaks that has not a native Indiah nome. The
reason is still more striking. It has been the
invariable custom of the Survey of India to
adhere to the native names. The English
maps therefore contain Kinchinjunga and Ma-
kalu and Sandakphu and other foreign words;
but for Everest, the highest peak of all, the
most careful search failed to find any native
name, nnd so it was called after Sir George
Everest, the great English geodesist. There is
something pleasingly poetic in the thought
that by leaving the mightiest of their great
peaks unnamed the poople of India have been
content to think of it as the great Unknown.
In spite of the skepticism of some well-
kown physicians persons do occasionally live
into their second century. Count Greppi, who
died at Milan lately at the age of 102, was one
of them. Thc date of his birth is attested beyond any question. In his boyhood ho was
pago in the household of Marie Louise, the
widow of Napoleon; in his youth ho was a
pupil and associate of Mottornich; in-iiis manhood he filled many diplomatic positions, the
most important of which was that of Italian
minister at Constantinople. For thirty years
he was a senator of Italy.

three dolls with her for the voyage,

great friends with the little passenger and stated he was extremely
fond of little girls.
Peggy was in full charge of the
C. P. R. officials and was left in the
arms of a kind stewardess who looked after the tiny tot during the voyage. Peggy was not a bit shy, and
liked her cabin Immensely and was
made a big fuss of by passengers
travelling by the liner.
Little Peggy who has come to live
with her grand-aunt, Mrs. Michael
Toner, wife of the superintendent of

Canada's Timber Crops-A Great Possession
It is commonly agreed that Canada holds the largest and finest
areas of spruce timber of any country in the world. At the same time
the total forest resources of the
Dominion are less than one-third of
the forest resources held by the
United States, and Siberia outranks
all other countries in the vastness of
its timber supplies. As regards the
forests of Canada, there has come ,..
about a remarkable transformation J§|
in the public point of view during
the past fifteen years. In the days i
when timber industries were only f
moderately important and when the |
lack of accurate information concerning the forest resources fixed
upon the public mind a fictitious
view as to the supposed "inexhaustibility" of the storehouse of timber,
it was not surprising that conservation policies should have been mostly
of sentimental rather than practical
value. Investigation has demonstrated that the forest area is very
much more contracted than was first
thought to be the case. It was also
learned that, contrary to common belief, forests once burned down or devastated by the axe did not usually
reconstitute themselves except at incredibly long periods. On the basis
of this new information, the man-
on-the-street was not slow to recognize that unless the rate of forest
destruction were abated by publie
laws and vigorous administration
and an awakened sense of public responsibility, Canada would sacrifice
a great industrial magnet and would
put beyond reach the essential wood
materials without which the most
ordinary business of the country
cannot be undertaken.
Nowadays, with the enormous increase in the manufacture and use
of print paper for newspaper purposes ana the adaptability of pulp
to a thousand of the every-day necessities of mankind, the timber-covered
county has come to be looked upon,
not as a barrier to agricultural development, but as an incredibly rich
asset, capable of attracting industrial capital and providing employment for new population and contributing directly to the prosperity
of the country in which it is situated.
An excellent example of how a
forest area, which yesterday was a
wilderness, can become in a few
months the scene of a highly prosperous industrial town, is supplied
by the history of Iroquois Falls In
Northern Ontario. Only a few years
ago ths townsite was occupied by a
few settlers and travellers. To-day,
by the establishment of a pulp and
paper industry, 2,500 men are given
regular employment and the wage
distribution each year is over $8,-
The term, "forest conservation" is
frequently misinterpreted to indicate that the conservationist would
place a Chinese wall about the
standing timber and slow down the
wheels of all wood-using industries.
This, however, is the antithesis of
the aim of the true conservationist.
The desire is not to prevent the
utilization of timber trees but to encourage siy.h a system of forest fire
protection ^accompanied by such
scientific methods of timber cutting
as should maintain the forest areas
as a productive source for all time
to come. In the past, the areas cut
over were ln many cases turned
into permanent barrens. Increasing
value of timber and the present
enormous costs of establishing a
pulp and paper mill have rendered
necessary in the eyes of all progressive forest owners a changed method
of operating so as to keep each area

(2) Indiscriminate cutting followed by forest fires not only
destroyed all the production value of this great forest area
but erosion has now set in to complete the work of devastation.
sources of Canada are regarded at
having been taken from us. In the
province of British Columbia, according to the Commission of Conservation, twenty-two times as much
timber has been burned as was put
to use by all the wood-using industries of that province. The three
prairie provinces have been robbed
of eighty per cent, of their forest
regular intervals. The forest must
be "anchored" as securely as the
mill dam.
Of the total area of Canada,
about eighty per cent, is designed as
a permanent forest-growing estate
and for that reason quite useless
for agricultural development. This
means, of course, that over one-
and-a-half million square miles can
return no useful services unless it is
made to grow timber. The weakness
in Canada's national position as a
forest-growing country at the present time is not the scarcity of natural forest land but the low average
production of timber per acre characteristic of the areas east of the
Rocky Mountains.
In the radically-changed economic
conditions which have automatically
placed a high market value upon
every square mile that produces timber, the annual damage to the forest
resources through the single cause
of fire, takes on a more and more
sinister aspect. Forest engineers
are agreed that while the axe has
cleared possibly one hundred thousand square miles of the Dominion,
the Fire Fiend has stripped fully one
million square miles, That the fnr
ests have not sprung up successfully
in the wake of this devastation is
indicated   by   the   fact that nearly
resources through unrestricted fires
and the proportion of loss in the
provinces of Ontario, Quebec, New
Brunswick and Nova Scotia is only
slightly less appalling. Were the
causes of forest fire attributable to
some purely accidental source, as
lightning, the record might be accepted with some resignation. It is
a well demonstrated fact, however,
that ninety per cent, of all forest
fires are of human origin. The settler in his land clearing operations,
the camper and his inextinguished
cam-p fire, the smoker with his lighted cigarette, match or pipe ashes,
have accounted for a serious part of
the nation's timber sacrifice. While
the forest protection systems of ths
Dominion and Provincial Governments have improved vastly during
