Enforcement of This Law
Will fie Beneficial to
Local Grower*
Under (be fruit marks act all Canadian shippers of fruit* bave been
compelled te comply with its requirement*. This British Columbia grower* bave faithfully and
cheerfully done, tbougb imported
fruit wning in direct competition
with them was allowed to be sold
without hindrance, without in any
way complying with the law. Tbi*
situation created a condition of unfair competi ion wbicb tbe Dominion government recognized, and in
1912 endeavored, on represntations,
to remove; and in tbis tbey were unsuccessful, because tbe law did not
apply to imported fruit, aod even if
it bad, tbere was no adequate provision for ils enforcement against
foreign shippers.
The British Columbia Fruit
Growers' association at its last annual meeting in January passed a
strong resolution citing tbe injustice
•nd unfairness under wbioh the industry wu laboring and asking the
Dominion government to formulate
regulations, making it incumbent
upon foreign shippers to comply
with the fruit mark* act before the
package* were allowed in Canada. A
committee composed of W. 8. Goggo
of Vernon and Thomas Abriel of
Nakusp, and the secretary of tne
association, proceeded to Ottawa in
February to press this and otber
matters before tbe Dominion government. Hon. Martin Burrell,
minister of agriculture, met them io
a most belpful spirit and gave tbem
all possile assistance. He fully rec
ognized the injustice in tbe fruit
mark* act and had legislation prepared to remedy it. Tbe bill secured precedence in tbe bouse over
many other* which were dropped,
and, despite the crowded aod contentious character ot the session
and some opposition, tbe bill was
Under the bill, as pissed, tbe
governor-ill council had power to
make regulations, and these were
duly published, and so given tbe
force of tbe law, in the Canada Ua-
zette of July 5. Tbey read aa foi-

The association bis just received
a letter from J. A. Ruddick, dairy
and cold storage commissioner, wbo
is charged with tbe enfoaoement of
tbe fruit marks acl, saying that a
circular is in the bands of tbe printers for distribution. Tbis circular
makes public tbe provisions of the
Uw, wbicb must now be obeyed by
the importer under the penalties of
tbe act.
It abould be • matter of congrato
Jation to British Columbia fruit
grower* that tbis unfairness hu
been removed. The change will assist mtterially in securing for our
fruit a market at a fair price. The
success of the British Columbia
Fruit Growers' association in tbis
matter will be of benefit to all the
fruit growers of. Canada, and
ihould greatly encourage us to improve tbe condition of the industry
in otber wave.
Resolution Adopted Favoring
Cannery as a Local
On Monday President Clark of
the boajd of trade received a c»ni-
munication from the Western Cannery company, of Kelowna, in
reference to the establishment of a
fruit and vegetable cannery in this
city. The company made a proposition to build a cannery at this
point, and to bave it ready in time
to handle next year's crop, if tbe
people of tbe city and valley would
subscribe for 120,000 worth of stock
in the company. If an additional
$200.0 worth of stook could be sold,
a jam factory would be added to the
Mr. Clark, on receipt of tbis letter, called a special meeting of tbe
board to consider tbe matter. At
this maeting, whicb wa* tbe most
largely attended held here for some
time, the company's proposition was
thoroughly discussed.
The majority of tbose present
seemed to tbink tbat tbe figures submitted by the Western Cannery
company were too higb, and at the
close of the discussion a resolution
was adopted instructing tbe secretary to answer tbe communication,
and to tell the company tbat tbe
board, at tbe present time, did not
see its way clear to endorse the
proposition. Another resolution
favoring the establishment of a
oannery by local people was
adopted. A number of citizens are
now engaged in perfecting the plans
of such in enterprise.

bills. Some lots purohased in
Athabaska Landing, for instance,
•t $150 eacb, are assessed at $2ft,
and on writing to the municipality,
tbe reply came back tbat tbe people
of Athabaska Landing did not buy
lots a mile and a balf from town,
and they doubted sf the lots would
bring $25 eacb at forced sale.
Here iB another instance, and tbis
from Moose Jaw, of lots being sold
by a syndicate for $175 to $250. Tbe
owner of this property, on account
of its proximity to Moose Jaw, haB
valued it at $100 per acre vit being
at present a fine wheat field) as farm
land. As a real estate proposition
its value is about $200 per acre.

of getting water tbere within tbe
next fifty years.

English Reserve
An lnforn:al address was delivered
ty 11 member of the Anglo-American
community at one ot London's most
poni-lar clubs on the text: ls the
Britisher Losing Ills Habitual Ite-
r-ei-ve? The speaker hai live! ten
years in London and the provinces,
and claims thut a complete change has
come over the Englishman during that
time, for Instead ol haling the sight
tf his fclLw men, he has got so that
he Is now almost human. The English Sunday has changed, the Englishman no longer stops at home. The
res'aurant habit has Increased his
affaUHty so that he sot only does
no', avoid strangers nt his table, but
even talks to them. Then 10 years
ago he would dp his best to find a
la-lway compartment for himself, now
he has become qiil'o an agreeable
travelling companion.
Many forces, the speak.'- averred,
have been at work to breakdown the
Englishman's traditional reserve. The
cinema picture houses, the theatres,
nnd nmsle hall's, the big department
-tores, continental lours, winter
sports, summer teasidc resorts, golf
and a dozen ether (actors are helping
10 make an Englishman more congenial. The clubs that epitomized this
reserve are becoming less popular
—they were the high altars of the Isolationists' creed.
Yes, concluded Ihe speaker, the
walls are down from the Englishman's reserve; his thoughts nre open
to progress; he finds he can get on
much more pleasantly and econom
.cally by sharing the world .with oth-
' er», and (he whole tendency is good,
and one lh..t commercial people should
not forget In arranging to do business
wltll the new generation cf Englishmen.

Saskatchewan Has One of the Largest Farms in Western Canada. How
Tractors Brought the Land Under
One ct the largest farms In Western
Canada is that known as the WeKsen
Farm, situated about ninety miles
southwest ot Saskatoon, and twenty
miles south of Rosetown, whicli ls
on the Goose Lake branch of the Canadian Northern Railway. The farm
comprises sixteen sections, or 10,240
acres, of beautiful undulating prairie
land with almost unbroken surface,
free from stone, brush or other obstructions, with a rich chocolate colored soil several feet ln depth, on
clay subsoil.
The land was originally purchased
from the Canadian Northern Railway
about four years ago by O. 0. Winter, who was for some years superintendent of the Canadian Pacific
Railway, with offices at Winnipeg,
Fort William and Brandon, and later
general superintendent of the Grand
Trunk Pacific. Mr. Winter, with
friends residing ln Minneapolis, organized the Weltzen Land and Agricultural Company, for the purpose of
putting the land under cultivation
under his direct management.
This big farm was flrst developed
in 1910, and ln order to carry out the
work with the greatest possible despatch, three big gasoline tractors
were employed, with an equipment of
gang plows, packers, discs, steel
tanks for hauling gasoline and other
necessary utensils.
The three engines, each drawing six
fourteen-lnch bTeaklhg plows and a
packer, were kept ln constant service day and night, with the result
that by the first of September the
virgin prairie, which had for ages
been the roaming ground of the buffalo, showed an expanse of 4,500
acres broken up by the plow shares.
The plows were then replaced by
six discs, attached to each engine in
such a manner as to give the upturned sod a double stroke, thus pulverizing lt well and putting the sod In fine
condition for seeding. The whole
4,500 acres were treated In this manner before the close of the season.
Since that time the progress of the
work has been steady during each
succeeding year, and the Weltzen
farm ls now one of the show farms of
Saskatchewan for mechanical equipment.

Suggestion Is of three kinds: subconscious, musculan, and external.
The first must be noted here. When
you put a shell to your ear you hear
a niurmur as of far-off volceB. So Is
It with the mind. It Is haunted by
the sub-conscious memories of the
past. Some of them are echoes from
the silent lips ot our ancestors, still
repeating themselves ever more faintly In succeeding gencratlcus.. In
that subsconclous state we catch the
undertone of great events, which long
since moved the world, just as the
wavelet which laps the shore has In
lt a tremor from storms which ages
ago swept the ocean.
What influence the mlnda of a congregation have on the extempore
prayers of the minister Is a question
of interest. At such times his own
will Is often subordinated to the Influence of the moment. The well-
known instance ln the lite ot 'Rabbi' Duncan may be clt .tl. Unknown
to the preacher he had entered the
church and seated himself below the
pulpit. The prayer uttered by the
minister was clearly not his own; the
very form of the petition bore evidence of thc strong Individuality of
the earnest worshipper seated below.
The Apt Retort
• There Is rather a good story current ln connection with a lady principal ot a girl's college In the west
of England. Intercourse between
her pupils and the boys who attend
a neighboring school ls strictly forbidden, but one morning the lady
principal beheld a small boy and girl
engaged In conversation, and commenced the attack as follows:
Lady Principal (majestically)—Little girl, have you ever been Introduced to this little boy?
Little Girl (trembling)—No.
Lady Principal—Lltlle boy, have
you ever been Introduced to this little girl?
Little Boy  (defiantly)—No.
Lady Principal (sternly)—Then you
must understand that lt Is exceedingly Impolite to speak to anyone without
a proper Introduction, and—
Little Boy (Interrup(lng)— Then 1
think It's a jolly cheek of you to
speak to me!
The lecture was put off until another day.

affections—we are satisfied he is an

man fond of fine clothes and making
a top of himself, It Is a sure sign that
he thinks the world consists of outside
show and ostentation, and he Is certain to-make an unstable man without
true affection or friendship, fond of
change and excitement, and soon
weary of those objects and pursuits
whicli for a time gave him pleasure.

Acrobats and Jugglers by Far the Better Trainers
Training with tho average boxer Is
a Joke. Tn fact they seldom do any
real training. Even when they are
making a bluff at It tbey do a little
running In the morning, a little shadow loxlng ln the afternoon.' Most ot
their so-called training, however, consists ln loafing ln the training quarters and more time Is spent In undressing and dressing than ln actual work.
One man who gets around to the
fighters' gymnasium once In a while
timed a fighter who was supposed to
be training hard for a bout. This fellow did a lot ot undressing end dressing, and a lot of talking and Joshing
with the other scrappers. But be
did very little actual work, as a matter of fact, just 11 minutes, That
was just one minute more tban four
rounds ln the ring.
Professional acrobats, jugglers, etc.
could give the fighters tips on exercising. They spend hours every day
of their lives doing their stunts. They
never miss a day, even ln the
winter when they are laying off, they
keep limbered up by constant exercising. Men who do hard acrobatic
work at afternoon and evening per
tor-nances don't consider that enough
work to l.-.ep in :'.ape, but also do
tome training every morning just to
take the stiffness out of their limbs
and arms.
Many musicians practice four and

ihe Could 'Find Nothing to Cure Her
Rheumatism Till On a Neighbor's
Advice She Tried Dodd's Kidney
Bt. Walburg, Sask. (Special) .—"I
can truly recommend Dodd's Kidney
Pills for any one suffering from rheumatism." TheBe are the words ot
Mrs. W. A. Baldwin, a highly respected resident ot this place. And
Mrs. Baldwin gives her reasons.
"I waB nearly helpless with rheumatism for two years," she states.
"I got medicine from the doctor, and
tried-several other remedies but no-
thing hei.ed me. Then* one of my
neighbors advised me to try Dodd's
Kidney Pills. I bought four boxes,
snd they helped almost trom the first.
1 have used nearly two dozen boxes
and am nearly cured."
That rheumatism ls one ot the re-
lulls.-of diseased kidneys ls again
shown In Mrs. Baldwin's case. Shs]
had headaches, stiffness ot the joints]
and backache, her sleep was broken
and unretreshlng, and Bhe was always
tired-and nervous. Her limbs swelled and she was always thirsty. These
ire aU symptoms of diseased kidneys.
When Bhe cured her kidneys with
Dodd's Kidney PIUs, the symptoms
vanished—and so did the rheumatism.

Banished Through the Uie of Dr.
Williams' Pink Pills.
Following wasting disease- such as
fevers, many people find lt difficult
to regain their former strength.
They become breathless and tired out
at the least exertion; their appetite
is fickle and they often teel as though
death was staring them in the face.
The trouble lies with tbe blood which
has not returned to Its normal condition and ls lacking ln the red corpuscles wlthou*. which good health Is
Impossible. It is at a time like this
that Dr. Williams' Pink Pills prove
their great tonic value. Every dose
helps to make mw, rich, red blood
which means health and vitality.
Mrs. Theodore Foley, Athens, Ont.,
says: "Following an attack of typhoid
fever I was left ln a very weak and
disheartened condition. The smallest exertion left me worn and tired
out, and I was hardly able to get
around, and naturally felt despondent.
I decided to try Dr. Williams' Pink
Pills, and they proved of the greatest
beneflt to me. I am now as well and
strong as ever, and can do all my
own work, and as we live on a farm,
it goes without saying that there ls
much to do. I teel, therefore, that I
cannot say too much In praise of Dr.
Williams' Pink Pills."
It you are suffering from the after
effects of fovers, la grippe, or any
acute disease, you should begin to

Women Pearl Dlvera
Pearl oysters are found at a depth
of from 5 to 30 fathoms. Women who
are employed In Japan for the work
dive to the bottom without any spec,
ial apparatua and retain their breath
when under water.
They disdain the use ot weights
to help them in their descent and
can remain below the surface from
ono to two minutes—In a few instances as long as throe minutes—
without experiencing any ill effects.
In the cold weather they will dive
for an hour and then return to shore
and warm themselves at tlte fire
specially built for this purpose, resuming fhelr work again after partaking of a frugal meal of rice and fish.
The divers range ln age from 13 to
40 years. It has been found, however, that those from 25 to 35 make
the best workers because of their physical strength and experience. Some
of these women will bring to the surface a score, or even 50 oyster3 in a
minute from a depth of 13 fathoms.
Partly to realize what this means you
have only to He at the bottom of a

Madame Novlkoff, In arguing lhat
the Bulgarian army should not be denied the hard-earned honor of entering Constantinople, repeated an interesting remark of General Grant's apropos of the failure of the Eussian
army to enter the Turkish capital in
1876, which, when similarly placed,
was held back by orders from St.
I was in Paris, she writes, when
General Grant, the American ex-president, called on me. Almost the first
thing he asked me was: Can you explain why the Russian army did not
occupv Constantinople, when it was
so entirely ln its hands? 1 replied
that, to our sorrow, our government
had telegraphed tke order not to advance further.
Well, replied Grant, all I can gay Is,
that lf I had been one ot your generals, I would have put the telegram
In my pocket, and have opened It three
days later at Constantinople.

"Very few people could so patiently suffer for three years as I did,"
writes Mrs. M. D. Durand, from her
homo in Augusta. * "Sometimes I
did feel very discouraged, but knew
that a remedy would some day turn
up with the power to relieve my sufferings. Nerviline was the one thing
that ever did me real good. It had
the power to sink Into my stiff, sore
muscles, and It'drey out thj pain and
gave me release from such distress as
few people know. My condition was
largely Rheumatic, and c:> this account I do urge every person with
Rheumatic tendencies to uso Nerviline—rub It ln frequently and bind a
hot flannel cloth over tho aching
part-i. This is very Boothing and will
surely cure."
It ls just Buch cases as this that has
made Nerviline famous In many lands.

A little bov was given two Images
of plaster, coated on the outside with
pink sugar. He wanted to eat the
images, but he was warned on no account to do so.
They are poison, he was told. If
you eat them it will 1.111 you.
However, the boy was dubious. He
had been cheated beforo this by
grown up people. Finally he had a
young friend to spend the day with
him, and that night tt was discovered that one ot thc images had disappeared. His mother nearly franc-
tic, rushed to him.
Harold, she said, where Is that pink
Image? Harold frowned as' he answered, defiantly: I gave it to. Richard,
and if he's alive tomorrow I'm going
to eat the other one myself.

First of all, It ls safer to be indoors
than out. Most people get killed
when out In the open. It you are
caught lu a thunderstorm, then don't
be afraid of sheltering under a tree
just because you have heard that it
is dangerous.
It is dangerous to shelter under a
solitary tree, because lightning likes
to strike the highest point and a solitary tree is the highest point as a
rule for some distance around. But
you are pretty safe it you take shelter
ln a wood. A tree ln a wood ls seldom struck.
Certain trees are mor« dangerous
than others. If you have a choice
between an oak and a beech tree, then
take the beech tree all the time. A
far g'-eater number of oak trees are
struck than beech treeB. Elm trees
are nearly as dangerous as oak trees.
Avoid big crowds and collections of
animals. For some reason—probably because of the warmth that rises
from their bodies—crowds of animals
and persons are liable to be struck
by lightning.

An Easy Pill to Take.—Some persons have repugnance to pills because
of their nauseating taste. Parmelee's Vegetable Pills are so prepared
as to make them agreeable to the
most fastidious. The most delicate
can take them without feeling the revulsion that follows the taking of ordinary pills. This Is one reason tor
the popularity of these celebrated
pills, but the main reason is their
high tonical quality as a medicine for
the stomach.
of the bowels is an absolute necessity for good health. Unless the

whole body, causing biliousness, indigestion and tick headaches. Salts

He said quite recently that he thought

said that a diy aloft did one as much

a familiar figure not only at the Crys-

throughout the country. On seven occasions he crossed the Channel by balloon, and he has flown across tha
