Ranchers of Valley Organize
to Secure  Better and
Wider Markets
Will Grade and Guarantee
All Products Shipped
From Valley
The meeting held in tbe Miners'
Union hall on Tuesday evening, for
the purpose ot taking the initiatory
steps in the organization of a farmers' exchange, was the best attended
gathering of ranchers that has ever
assembled in the city. Nearly every
plantation in tbe valley was represented, over a hundred farmers being present.
W. A. Cooper was elected temporary chairman, and Mr. Baker
was tbe unanimous choice of ihe
meeting for secretary-treasurer,
Chas. Hesse, who was tbe leading
spirit in originating tbe movement,
explained tbe object for which the
meeting had been called. A farmers' co-operative union, or a farmers'
exchange, be said, was an imperative necessity in tbe city. It was
more i m port nnt to gel 1 tbe prod ucts
of the farm than it was to grow it.
There would be 300 carloads of fruit
and vegetables grown in the valley,
and it wbb essential to find'a market
for it. Farmers' exchanges were
successfully operated in the Okanagan and Kootenay districts, and we
could have a similar organization
here second to none in tbe province.
C. A. S. Atwood expressed similar views as the above. For the best
interests of tbe community, it was
necessary to have a selling association. All fruit and farm products
should be graded, well packed and
guaranteed. Tbe Riverside Nurseries bad nothing to sell through
the proposed organization, but be
would donate £50 to it for tbe good
of the cause.
Nearly all the prominent ranchers
in the room expressed themselves as
being in favor of the formation of a
farmers' co-operative union or a
farmers' exchange.
The chairman read extracts from
the provincial act governing the formation of agricultural and horticultural societies.
On motion of J T. Lawrence and
Chas. Hesse, the meeting unanimously decided to organize a Farmers' Exchange.
None oi those present had very
clear ideas regarding the heHt method
to pursue in perfecting organization,
or how In conduct it after the formation of the exchange, and on motion of J. T. Lawrence and Thos.
Powers, it was decided to extend an
invitation to Mr. Bullman, of the
Kelowna Farmers' Union, to address the members of tbe new organization al a meeting to be beld
in the Miners' Union hall next
Tuesday evening, August 20.
\V. K. Hadden addressed the
meeting at length on co-operative
associations in general.
On motion of Messrs. Hadden
and Lawrence, a committee of five
wai appointed to devise ways and
means of completing organization.
Tbe chair appointed Messrs. Hesse,
Heaven, Markell, Hadden and
Meters. W. E. Hadden and Alf.
Cooper pointed out that some
funds would be required to pay the
expenses of tbe exchange until it arrives at tha smooth running stage.
Tbe chairman passed bis hat around
the hall. The result waB: Cash on
hand, 111.20.
The secretary-treasurer was instructed to pay all current expenses.
Alter a vote of thanks bad been
tendered to Mr. Hesse for his work
in taking tbe initiative in proposing
tbe organization, the meeting adjourned until next Tuesday night.

Five Million Tons of Ore
Blocked Out at Hidden
Geo. L. Walker, in the Boston
Commercial, says that (he Granby
company bas recently been making
a net profit of $135,000 a month.
TbiB is at the rate of about $10. SO a
share. Tbe profits arising from one
year's operations, with copper at its
present pree, will be neurly sufficient to pay for the new smelter
and other construction at fts Hidden Creek property.
lt is estimated tbat five million
tons of ore, which will average bet
ter than 2 per cent copper, bas been
blocked out at Hidden Creek already. The No. 2 ore body, wbicb
was supposed to be lower grade than
No. 1, is developing much better
tban was expected. What is known
as tbe lower tuunel, 145 feet under
the upper tunnel, bas crosscut the
No. 2 ore body recently, Bhowing it
to have a width of over 120 feet. It
averages better tban 2 per cent cop
per throughout.
It is officially stated that all of the
openings in the mine, tunnels.drifts,
crosscuts and raises are in ore tbe
grade of whicb exceeds 2 per cent.
Tbe importance of tbis will be appreciated when it is recalled that
Granby's big mine at Pboenix averages less than U per cent copper,
and carries about tbe same gold and
silver values tbat are found in tbe
Hidden Creek ores. All tests and
calculations lead the management
to believe that operating costs per
ton of ore will be lower and recoveries of values higher at Hidden
Creek tban at Pboenix aud Grand
Construction work at Hidden
Creek is progressing rapidly. Docks
and houses are being built, tbe railroad right of way and smelter site
are being cleared and lbe power line
graded. All .the plans will be completed soon and then contracts for
foundations ,and otber construction
work will be let. The new smelter
should go into commission some
time next year.
Readers of these letters will recall
that I strongly advised the purchase
of Granby stock when it was selling
between $20 and f 30 a share. 1 was
confident that the management
could be depended upon lo pull the
coinpany out of ils difficulties.
Through tbe purchase, development
and equipment of tbe Midden Creek
property Granby is coming into pun-
session of greater and more valuable
assets tban it ever had before; and
there is every prospect that its stock
may sell even higher in the future
than it did in the boom days of

The Nelson-Grand Forks baseball
game Wednesday afternoon wus
a series of smiles and tears to the
local fans. Up to the end of tbe
fifth inning the borne team
played professional baseball, and
lbe sporting editor of The Sun
wore his .Panama on tbe right ear
at an'angle of tony-five degrees towards some easy money. The score
was 3 to 0 in favor of Grand Forks.
In the sixth, however, the Nelson
batters began to catch on to Pitcher
Barrett's curves, and from tbat time
until tbe end of tbe game the outfielders of the home club were bombarded witb baseballs. Tbe final
score was terrible to contemplate—
17 to 3 in Nelson's favor. The procession to the city nfter the game
was of a funereal nature, with bats
well drawn over tbe eyes to hide
tbe tiers.
A Montreal minister says tbere is
no bell. It is Tbe Sun's opinion
that the reverend gentleman was too

A new wage scale was signed this
week between the British Columbia
Columbia Copper company and tbe

sliding scale, dependent upon the
price of copper. Wben copper is
selling below IC cents a pound the
scale will be paid tbat existed up
to the end of July, with the exception of tbe 92.50 men at the smelter,
and tbere wages iii future will never

Snakes and   Sense
Ever since the serpent in the Garden ot Eden double-crossed Eve. the
sons of meu have been swatting the
But now appears Prof. H. D-
Bailey of Muhlenberg College In Pennsylvania with a word directed especially to farmers. He urges farmer's
to desist from Indiscriminate snake
swatting. What ls more the professor wants to put some of the snakes
into the song-bird class, which Ib to
say, he wants them protected by legislation because ot their co-operation
with mankind ln warfare on pests
detrimental to man's agricultural purposes.
Here Is a list of the professor's
special privilege snake family; king
snake, milk snake, -bull snake, fox
snake, indigo snake, corn snake, and
common garter snake. We have the
professor's word for it, that these
snakes are harmless to mankind, and
are really benefactors because they
destroy rodents and many insects.
As a matter of actual scientific fact,
there are very few venomous Bnakes
In North America, but there Is a terrific aversion and prejudice ' among
normal persons against the whole
snake kingdom. What Prof. Bailey
says Is doubtless very well founded
on commonsense. It may be practical absurdity to Bwat a friend, even
If It be a snake. Nevertheless we
doubt very much whether legislation
would be successful in removing so
universal a prejudice.
When it comes to legislating in the
snake's behalf bis snakeshlp is amenable to the oldeBt law In the world
according to which he hae no business eating gophers and bugs, anyhow. According to Genesis all the
snake has auy right to eat is dust,
and If he had been following orders
he wouldn't be here now.

A motorcycle Is a bicycle with S
pandemonium attachment.
Tbe motorcycle is equipped vith
a motor small enough to "be put in
a large pocket and loud enough to
fill a colliseuui comfortably. Tbls
motor Is connected with the rear
wheel of the bicycle, and when lt Is
in the mood will revolve the wheel
with tremendous speed, thus causing the bicycle to proceed from hither to yon over buggies, pedestrians,
fences and small Outbuildings.
A motorcycle' is really a miniature
automobile with full sized noise, smell
and dirt output. It ls not started by
cranking, however, but by pedaling
the whole machine along the road until the motor emerges from Its coma
and gets on the job. An automo-
billst can be detected by his vast
overhanging shoulders and calloused
hands. A motorcyclist, however,
may have arms like plpestems, but
his legs are seven sizes too large for
A motorcycle ls not as comfortable
as a camel or a lumber wagon, but
it is very swift, and there ls nothing
that feels more like flying than to
ride a large barytone motorcycle over
the country roads at flfty miles an
hour, leaping lightly trom bump to
bump—except to leave the machine
when lt has struck a rock and to soar
swiftly through the unstable atmosphere until some jagged section of
the hemisphere interferes with further progress.
Motorcycles are very useful and
have almost annihilated distance and
cheap clothes. They should be ridden in costume, except by very
wealthy and careless men. A pair
of leather pants with asbestos ilh.Jg
and a two bushel hip pocket for tools
a padded vest, heavy gloves, a pair
of goggles and nose and shin guards
make a tasty and useful rig for the
cyclist. Dressed In this fashion tbe
enthusiast can enjoy himself to the
full as he caroms from tree to tree
and gorges himself with dust, oil and
Motorcycles should be treated with
respect at all times and should not be
interfered with when ln a hurry.

Cured Through the  Uie  oi
William*' Pink Pills
There is an excellent reason why
Dr. Williams' Pink Pills have cured
the most sever.e cases of neuralgia,
sciatica and otber complaints ln the
group known as disorders of the
nerves. This group also Includes St.
Vitus Dance, partial paralysis and the
common state of extreme nervousness
and excitability. Each of these complaints exist because there is something ihe matter with the nervous
system. If the. nerves have tone and
are strong and healthy you will not
have any ot these complaints. The
reason why Dr. Williams' Pink Pills
cure nervous disorders is, that they
restore week, run down nerves to
their proper state of tone. They act
both ('.irectVy upon the blood supply
and the nerves. The highest medical authorities have noted that nervous troubles generally attack people
who are bloodless and that the
nerves are toned when the blood ls
renewed. It Is thus seen that Dr.
Williams' Pink Plllls cure nervous
disorders by curing the cause of the
trouble. The following ls an Instance. Miss Annie Jones, London,
Ont., says:—"For over a year I was
an Intense sufferer from neuralgia,
which located in my face and head.
The path at times was so Intense that
I could scarcely keep from screaming,
and nothing I waa doing for the trouble seemed to help me. As time
went on my whole nervous system
was affected. At last when I felt
that my case was almost hopeless I
was advised to try Dr. Williams' Pink
Pills. The result of this treatment
was that I aro now enjoying such
comfort as I had not known for years,
and only those who have suffered
from neuralgic pains can realize what
a blessing the Pills have been to me."
if you are suffering from aby blood
or nervous disorder begin to cure
yourself to-day with Dr. Williams'
Pink Pills, which you can get from
any medicine dealer or by mail at 60
cents a box or six boxes for (2.60

"My husband was sick for three
years with catarrh of the bladder, and
palpitation of the heart, caused by
c-ffee. Was unable to work at all
and In bed part of the time.
I had stomach trouble, was weak
and fretful so I could not attend to
my housework—both of us using coffee all the time and not realliling it
waa harmful.
One morning the grocer's wife
soid sbe believed coffee was the
cause of our trouble and advised
Postum. I took It home rather dubious wbat my husband would say
he was fond of coffee.
"But I took coffee right off the
table and we haven't used a cup of

change in us, and now my husband
never complains of heart palpllatloh

Arsenic at Widely Used In India «■
In Ancient   Rome
Arsenic ls commonly- employed by
the professional poisoner ln India,
who will poison a whole .family to
make sure of one victim. The reports ot the Bombay Government analyst throws some light on the methods. The poison Ib usually given ln
sweetmeats, and generally by a
strange woman who has been met ln
the street, and who mysteriously disappears. This strange woman Is
found ln every analyst's report for
the last twenty years, and in circumstances so identical that lt would almost seem to be the same person.
Will tbls elusive person ever be captured by the Indian police?'
Arsenic has, perhaps, been more
frequently used that any otber poison
for criminal purposes. It has been
proved Identical with the wonder felix-
ir of the seventeenth century, when
secret poisoning became so frequent
ln Italy that the clergy, despite the
rules of tbe confessional, acquainted
Pope Alexander VII In 1868 with the
extent of the practice.
It was found that young widows
were abundant In Rome, and that
most of the unhappy marriages were
speedily dissolved by the death qf
the husbtftad. A secret society of
young matrons was discovered, which
met at the house of La Spara, a reputed witch, who supplied them with
a slow, tasteless, colorless poison,
carefully calculated to kill a husband
in just the time that suited the purchaser. La Spara and thirteen of
her companions were hanged, a large
number ot the culprits were whipped,
half-nr.ked, through the streeta of
Rome, while others of the highest
rank ► scaped with heavy fines and
binlshment.—London Chronicle.

60,000 Unclaimed   War Medal*
In two large strong rooms at Woolwich Dockyard, Woolwich, Eng., are
Btored nearly 60,000 unclaimed
South African medals. Each is engraved with the name ot tbe man
to whom lt was awarded. These
men are not now with the colore, but
a staff of clerks and a department
armed with medal lists and regimental records are endeavoring to trace
Many ot this lost legton are Irregulars who flocked to the British colors when war broke out, but who have
since become scattered all over the
world. One young man, for Instance
after the war, went prospecting In
the interior. He turned up recently
ln Capetown after an absence ot nearly ten years and aaked for his medal. It was given him. Similar^e-
manda from all parts of the British
Empire are received nearly every
Hundreds of medals have been reposing ln regimental safes since 1904.
At the end of ten years, according
to the King's regulations, those still
unclaimed will be broken up and the
sliver debited to the mint. Many-
men have refused the medal on the
ground that lt ls 'too cheap-' Three-
quarters of a million of the medals
were struck—a fact which may have
been lightly regarded.
But these South African awards are
not the only medals at Woolwich
awaiting claimants. There are 4,000
medalB (with names engraved) for
the Zulu campaign of 1878-79, and also
seven medals presented by the British South African Company for the
Matabele campaign. Claims for the
Crimean and Indian Mutiny medals
are still made. On an average the
India office give away twelve Mutiny
medals a year, while the war office
bestows one Crimean medal a year
and replaces about ten lost medals.

Contents of a Man
An average man ot 150 pounds contains the constituents found in 1,200
eggs. There ia enough gas in him
to fill a gasometre of 3,649 cubic feet.
The iron in him would make
four tenpenny nails. His fa; would
make 75 candles and a good-sized
cake ot soap. His phosphate contents would make 8,064 boxes of
matches. There is enough hydrogen
ln hin. in combination to All a balloon and carry him above the clouds.
The remaining constituents would
yield six teaspoonstul of salt, a bowl
ot sugar, and ten gallons ot water.
The foregoing analysis ls made by
tbe Practical Druggist, which adds
tbat a man has 600 muscles, about
1.000,000 cells, 200 bones, 4 gallons

Over Four Hundred Cremations at
The British Medical Journal in a recent article on the progress of cremation gives figures showing the
growth of this method of disposing
of the dead ln Europe.
The total number of cremations ln
Great Britain during 1911 was 1,023,
which shows an Increase of 177 aB
compared with 1910. Since the opening of the Working Crematorium ln
1886, there have been 9,984 cremations in Great Britain. At the pre-
eent time there are 13 crematoriums
ln Germany, six of which started operations laBt year. A law has been
recently passed permitting cremations
in Prussia.
In Switzerland there are now ten
crematoriums, three of which belong
to the municipalities ot Basel, Geneva
and Zurich. There were 1,210 cremations ln Switzerland ln 1910.
There are about forty crematoriums ln the United States, twenty-
eight in Italy, Ave ln France, four in
Sweden and Norway, two hi Russia,
one ln Denmark, and one ln Montreal,
Tbe beautiful crematorium in
Mount Royal cemetery at Montreal
was opened In 1902 and up to the

Women ..Will Erect a Memorial to the Victims of
the Titanic
The women of the United Slates
are collecting half a million dollars
with whicb they will erect a monument to the men who periahed on
the Titanic that women and children
might be saved. They plan the noblest arch the world has ever seen, to
be erected in Washington, a monument that will become not less famous than the Washington monument, and that will proclaim to tbe
world the gratitude of womankind
that men, in a great crisis, proved
tbat he had not degenerated in the
course of the centuries that removed
him from that age when be had to
light for his womenfolk, and for tbe
lives of his childreen. There are few
great arches of any kind in the world
today, and those that there are have
nothiug to do with the heroism of
peace, but mark the triumph of some
conqueror of a foreign foe. The Titanic arch will mark the greatest victory of all, the triumph of a man's
soul over his flesh. It will bear in
i-nperishable marble the story of
one of the world's greatest '[calami
ties, one of mnnkind's greatest victories.
The movement to commemorate
in some striking way the heroism
of the men who went down with the
Titanic began almost as soon as the
survivors touched shore on the Car-
pathia.    Who thought of  it first is--latitude,  since  it  has already been
not known. Il must be that thousands of women thought of it' at the
same time. Probably a dozen little
circles worked simultaneously until
their widening operations brought
them into contact. Then they
merged, and finding among them
Mrs. John Hays Hammond,a woman
witb a reputation for executive ability, they made her the secretary of
tbe Women's Titanic Memorial association. Otber prominent women
were prompt to volunteer iheir services as soon as they learned of
what was going on, and a notable
committee was formed. Mrs John
Hay, widow of the famous secretary
of state, was made president, and
Mrs. W. H. Taft, wife of tbe president, was honored by being permitted to subscribe the first dollar.
Other women who have taken an
active part in tbe work are Mrs
..rover Cleveland, Mrs. Champ
Clark, Mrs. Andrew Carnegie, Mrs.
Phoebe Hearst, Mrs. OHcar Underwood, Mrs. Samuel Gompers, Mrs.
John D. Rockefeller,Mrs Alexander
Graham Bell, Mrs. Harrison Grey
Fiske and Mrs. Leonard Wood.
Aa soon as the committee was
formed the heads of practically all
tbe national women's clubs in the
United States applied to it, asking
to be included in tbe association. At
tbe present time it is said ih it 28,-
000 women's clubs and other or-
ganizatioos in the United States are
at work collecting money for the
memorial. Even from Hawaii haB
come a subscription from an American women's club, and fr.m Alaska
bas come a contribution of uncoined
gold dust. The women in Panama,
tao, have asked to tie allowed to
send on their mite. The result of this
organization is that for some months
past money has been flowing into
the central committee at the rate of
$300 a day. Even at this rate it
would require considerable time to
raise tbe half million dollars which
iB the sum to be spent on the mem
orial, and at the present time tbe organization is being fmproved with a
view of hurrying up the contributions.
Tbe women bave clear ideas aB to
what will be done with the money.
They have resolved that the half
million shall be spent in an arch,
and in nothing else, and that the
arch shall be at Washiagton, in the
Mall,   which will   then  have four
memorials, namely, the Washington
monumeni, the Grant memorial, Ihe
proposed Lincoln memorial, and the
Titanic arch. ■ The leading artists
and architects of the United States
will be asked ta_sttbtnit designs, but
they will be allowed no  very   great
decided thai an arch squared on top,
as is the Arc de Triomphe in Par's,
and ornamented witb classical pillars and appropriate carved figures,
shall be erected. It may be that the
poets will be urged to rise to the
great occasion and write something
that will be carved on the white
marble of the orch, so that as long
as the blocks remain one upon the
other the world may read tlie story
of the men wbo chose death on the
The taste of the women in choosing the arch as an expression of
their gratitude and reverence is to
be commended. This beautiful form
of memorial has been permitted to
decay of late years, and at the pres
ent time there are not half a dozup
great arches left standing in the
world. The most famous is the Arc
de L'E.oile..u. the Champs Elysees,
Paris. This arch was erected to commemorate the victories of Napoleon,
and was completed in 1S.10; In
1807 Napoleon himself began the
erection of an Arch of Peace in
Milan, and it was finished by lhe
Austrians fifty years later. There is
also the Marble Arch, in London,
which forms one of the entrances to
Hyde Park, and there is a Welling
ton arcb. None of these arches,
however, cost half a million dollars
to erect, and on this account the
money which the women of the
United States wil s.iend on the Titanic memorial ought to provide the
noblest arch ever erected. Posterity
will say that no other event com
memorated by a triumphal arch was
so worthy of being perpetuated as
the tragedy of the Titanic, "where
manhood perished not."

How it Will Increase the Car
Prom time to time the grain grow.
era ot Western Canada are faced with
problems affecting the disposal ot the
products ot their labor; questions
that require the most careful consideration. To come to a satisfactory
conclusion on these vexing problems
demands a thorough investigation of
all th" possible results which would
arise from the adoption of the proposals made. To often the actual
results of the operation of the pro-
nosed schemes are obsured by parties
interested ln securing pecuniary advantages.
Such a scheme ls the one now before the AY'eatern grain growers, in
which an effort is being made to establish a sample market tor the
handling ot grain. The Imaginary
benefits of such a market are extolled
while tho injuries that would result
from It are utterly ignored. Chief
among the faults that may be found
with the proposed scheme ls the
greater length of time which would
6e consumed In conveying the grains
from the point of shipment to the lake
Every farmer knows the value of
the rapid transit of grain from the
farm to the market. The present
cry from one end of the country to
the other is that the railways are too
slow 1. moving the crop. There are
too few cars and insufficient motive
nower. And yet the establishment
of a sample market would further
lengthen the time of transit and lessen the abilities of the railways to
handle the crop.
Next fall, one of the railways will
be hauling Into Winnipeg at least 500
carloads of grain every day. Should
a sample market be established the
grain would be sold by separate carloads en sample, and ordered out on
time. The whole railway yard cannot bc switched to pick out a particular car as each order is received, so
that there will have to be a rule to
start switching carB every night after
five o'clock. This means, therefore,
that a car of grain reaching Winnipeg
after eleven o'clock on Saturday
morning would not start to be switched until after Ave o'clock on Monday
evening, as the grain would not be
disposed ot a*, the grain exchange before Monday.
Cars that reached Winnipeg before
eleven o'clock Saturday morning and
were switched Saturday evening
would be shipped on Sunday. But
on Monday there would be no grain
moving out of Winnipeg. That means
that practically no grain would be
shipped out of Winnipeg for twenty
four hours each week. The same
thing *vould occur on Thanksgiving
Day and the other holidays.
Making the very best allowances
It means that one day In every seven
would be lost, and as there are only
seventy-seven day In which the crop
moves, which would Include eleven
Sundays and at least one holiday, lt
means that the ability of the railways to move the crop would be lessened by twelve days out of seventy-
seven, or roughly speaking, the transportation facilities of the railways of
the Northwest would be cut down by
at least sixteen per cent.
Then, taking Into consideration the
glut that would take place at the lake
front through the rush of grain there
In the flrst part of the week owing
fo the hold up at Winnipeg over Sunday, tt Is not an exaggeration to say
that the power of the railways to
move the crop would be reduced by
twenty-flve per cent.
' The agitators for a sample market
■re saying that the railways should
add to their rolling stock and yard
facilities. But every man who exercises common sense knows that notwithstanding their heavy expenditures nnd every effort they were able
to make the railways have been barely
able to keep up with the large Increases In the crops produced ln the
West. It Ib apparent, therefore, that
If the railways are hampered In their
movement of the crop to the extent
of twenty or twenty-flve per cent, that
lhe grain blockade will be worse than
ever before.
The western farmer ts well aware
thai a grain blockade always works
to the detriment of those who raise
the grain and to the advantage of
those who buy grain and hold tt In
their elevators. The results of Hie
grain blockade of last fall are still
felt In the West Let the farmers
consider the results of a blockade
twenty-flve per cent worse than the
last one before they consent to the
establishment of a sample market and
Us attendant evils.

First Thimble
' There Is a tradition that a DutcU
Rllversmtth pondered over a certain
notion which he had cherished long
•nd silently in the slow working
censes which he deemed his brain—
* notion for a trinket, a fallal, for a
dignified lady of Holland. It must
be ■ useful trinket, albeit a costly one,
meet for so good a seamstress as
Dame Allxe Van Rensselaer. When
the notion took definite shape, tbe
thing was quickly wrought lu pree-
lous metal by fingers as deft as the
brain was slow, and the Industrious
housewife proudly wore not only the
first thimble but the flrst thimble
