Tenth Year—No. 22
Grand Forks, B. C, Friday. April 7, 1911.
$1.00 Per Year in Advance.
Fruit & Nursery Company
Increases Its Capital to
with the definite plans wbich hnve
been formulated for irrigating the
major portion of the land in this
neighborhood, should give a decided
impetus to the fruit growing industry in the valley, and a substantial
increase in land values may be
looked for in the near future.
The largest and most important
real estate transaction ever consummated in thia valley waB closed this
week. The growth of the Grand
Forks Fruit & Nursery company has
reached the stage where it has been
deemed advisable lo increase the
capital stock from f 25.000 to 8200,-
000, the object being to increase its
holdings and extend its business.
Tbe decision of the' directors to
take this step was ratified at a recent meeting of the members of tbe
company, and for some weeks past
negotiations for tbe acquisition of
new properties bave been pending.
On Friday last tbe papers .were
signed transferring J. D, Honsberger' s ranch and Mr. Honsberger's
option on Martin Burrell's ranch to
the company. These two ranches
are the most highly developed, fruit
producers in the valley. Mr. Honsberger's orchard, wbich is the largest shipper in tbe valley, includes
seven acres of prune trees from which
a handsome revenue has been derived during the past seven or eight
years. Mrs. Burrell's orchard has
long been pointed out as a model ol
perfection, owing to the fact that
Mr. Burrell is one of the leading authorities on horticultural matters iu
the Dominion. Wbile the consideration for the .transfer of these properties bas not been made public, it
is known that the Honsberger ranch
has been valued at 970,000 for some
time, and the Burrell orchard and
land has been held at $20,000. It is
therefore conjectured that the sale
price was somewhere in the neighborhood of these figures. Mr. Hons
berger will retuin his interest in tbe
new orchard and nursery company.
The total acreage of the new company is 4H5, of which over 200 acres
have already been transformed
into bearing orchards, consisting
of 15,000 trees. Within a year
125 acres more will be planted to
tret'i, thus making the Grand Forks
Fruit & Nursery company one of the
lirgest, if uot the largest, fruit growing enterprises in British Columbia,
the possible exception as to size being tbe well known Coldstream ranch
in the Okunagan country.
Tho directorate of Ihe new company is exceptionally strong, being
composed of Messrs J. 1). Honsberger, G. M. Hill, Jos. Tweddle,
II. W. Collins and A. B. Tweddle.
Mr. Honsberger, who becomes general manager of the company, has
successfully conducted a 100,acre
fruit ranch on the Covert estate for
the past seven or eight years, and is
regarded us one of the most capable
and enterprising horticulturists in
the valleey. A. B. Tweddle has
been managing director of the Grand
Forks Fruit & Nursery company for
the past three yenrs, and Mr. Collins is an experienced fruit
grower, having been the owner of an
orchard on tbe Covert estate for a
number of years Messrs. Hill and
.Ios. Tw'.'dille are prominent fruit
and nurserymen froili Ontario.

this compay, taken  in conjunction
Reciprocity and Bachelors
EttiUtr Evening Sun.
Waterford, Ont., April 1.—It
seems to me that in considering tbe
probable effects of the proposed reciprocity agreement on the fruitgrowing industry in British Columbia, some points have been left out
of consideration. For instance, it
is a well known fact tbat orchard
land containing trees tbat are bearing fruit is worth at VVeenatcbie
from £1000 to 81500 an acre. Now,
tbis land is dependent entirely on
the United States markets, and yet
itis worth much more per acre tban
land at Grand Forks is worth. How
can tbe opening of tbe United States
markets to Canadian fruit growers
reduce tbe value of British Columbia land?
Another point is tbis. Neither
fruit tiees nor fruit affected witb
pests can be imported into Canada,
and tbe free entry of fruit will simply mean that United Slates fruit
free from pests can be brought into
Canada. Now, it is well known
ibat a comparatively small percentage of the fruit grown in the United
States is free from pests, and the
making of the proposed reciprocity
agreement will result in the opening
of tbe United States markets to all
the British Columbia fruit, since it
free from pests, and tbe opening of
lbe Canadian markets to only a part
of the fruit grown in tbe United
States, since a large part of tbe fruit
grown in tbat country will nut be
marketable in Canada on account of
being affected witb pests. The making of the proposed agreement will
not prevent Canadians from increasing the stringency of the
inspection at ■ present in operation
for tbe purpose of keeping fruit affected with pests out of Canadi.
You may thank your stars, Mr.
Editor, that you do not live in Ontario. 1 find that there is a heavy
-pecial tax placed, on bachelors in
this province. If I weie married
my income tax would be only $5,
but as 1 am not married, I have lo
pay four times as high a tax as a
married man would have to pay under tbe same circumstances. In the
Wesl, where tbe bachelors are alf-
powerful, and can turn a government out when they wish, they
would not dare to make such a law.
The married men here pay nn income tax only on what they make
yearly over 81000, while the single
men are taxed on all they make
yearly over 8400. I nm considering
plans for evading that lax; but I
find that millinery bills come even
higher than a 815 tax. This world
is full of pitfalls. You cannot stop
outof one without getting into another.
Tliere is snow here yet, although
it is the 1st of April.

Story of Indian Corn
When Miles Standisb came over
to America he tried to find some
Indians in order to make friends
with them, but the Indians would
never allow him to approach them;
they always ran away from him.
One day he and his men found a
a huge mound of sand. He could
tell by the imprint of fingejs that
this had been lately piled. Stnndish
and his men dug up this benp. They
came to a small woven basket full of
Indian corn. Digging still further,
tbey came to a large basket full of
fine corn which bad lately been gathered. The whites had never seen
Indian corn before, and they were
amazed at its beauty. Some of the
ears were yellow, some red. On
some ears red and yellow grains were
Standisb and his band said afterward that it wus a  "goodly sight."
The basket beld three or four
bushels and was narrow at the top.
It was all two men could manage to
lift it from the ground.
The basket was almost us wonderful to the white men as its contents.
It wus handsomely woven.
They filled their pockets with the
corn for seed, making up their minds
to pay the Indians for it wben they
could lind and make friends with
The next summer they found out
the owners and paid for the corn
they bad taken. But for ihis lucky
accident the whites would have hail
no corn to plant the next spring,
and would most likely have starved
to death. Of all plants that grow in
America, Indian corn was most important to the Indians. It was also
of most importance to the white people who came to the country.

There was an unmistakable threat
in these latter words; and as Gurdon
looked up he saw that the cripple nm
regarding him with an intense malignity. The grey eyes were cold und
merciless the handsome face hard and
set and yet it was not a countenance
which one tusually associates wiith
the madman or criminal. Really it
was a very noble face—the face of a
philanthropist, a poet, a great states-
man who devotes his money and his
talents to the interests ol his country. Despite a feeling of danger
Gurdon could not help making a
mental "note of these things.
"Won't you sit down?" the cripple
aaked again. "I should like to have
a little chat with you. Here are
whiskey and cigars, for the excellence
ol which I can vouch, as I import
them myself. Perhaps. alBo, you
share with me a love of flowers?"
With a wave of his strong arm the
speaker indicated the wealth of blossoms which rose from all sides of the
room. And nt the far end, folding
doors opened into the conservatory,
which wns a veritable mass of brilliant colors. The cripple smiled upon
his blossoms as a mother might on
her child.
"These nre the only friends who
never deceive you," he said. "Flow-
era and dogs, nniS perhaps, little
children, 1 know this, because I
have suffered in contact with the
world, ns, perhaps, you will notice
when you regard this poor body o*
mine. I think you snid just now you
came here entirely by yourself."
"Thnt is n fact," Gurdon replied
He wns beginning to f»el a little more
at his ease now.' "Let me hasten to
assure you that I came here with no
felonious intent at all. I wns looking for somebody, nnd I thought that
my friend came neve. You will pardon me if I do not explain with any
amount of detnil, because the thing
does not concern myself altogether.
And, besides "
Gurdon paused. He could not possibly tell this stranger of the stalling events which find led up to his
present awkward situation. In any
case he would not hnve been believed.
"We need not go into that," the
cripple snid. "It is nil by the way.
You came here nlone, and, I take it,
when you left your home, you had
not the slightest intention o* coming
here. .To make my meaning a little
more clear, if you disappeared from
this moment, and you friends never
saw you neain. the police would not
have the slightest clue to your whereabouts."
Gurdon laughed just a little nneesi-
ly; he began to entertain the idea
that he was face to face with some
daneerous lunatic, some man whose
troubles and misfortunes hnd turned I
him ngninst the world. Evidently it i
would be the right policy to humor
"That is quite correct," he said.!
"Nobody has the least ideu where 11
am; und if the unpleasant contingency you allude to happened to me, I
I should go down to posterity as one
of the victims of the mysterious type
of crime that startles London now
and  again."
"I should think," snid the strnng
cr, in a thin my tone, full caused
burden's pulses to bent a little faster
—"I sliou.il think that your prophecy
is in 11 f; ir way to turn uut correct.
1 don't SSk you why you came lure,
because you would nut tell me if I
did, Hut you must have been spying
on the place, or you wouid not have

limn sense prompts tne to Ink" it for |
granted  that  vou  are m    some  way
connected  With the foes to whom 11
hnve alluded."
"I assure yuu I am not," Gurdon
protested,   "i am tie enemy of   no
num.    I raine here to-night "
Ourdon stopped in some confusion
How could he possibly te'l this man
why he had come and what he hod in
his mini!:- The thing «ps awkward—
almost to the verge of ibsirdity.
"I unite see the ounndnry you are
In," said the cripple, with a smile.
"Now let me ask you a question. Do
you happen to know a man by the
name of Mark Fenwick?"
The query was so straight and to
the point thnt Gurdon was fairly
startled. More and more he began to
appreciate the subtlety and cleverness
of hih companion. It was impossible
to fence the interrogation; it hnd to
be answered, ono way or the other.
"I know the mnn by sight," he
said; "hut 1 beg to assure you thnt
until last night 1 had never seen
"That may be," the cripple said
drilv. "But you know him now, and
that satisfies me. Now, listen. You
sen what I have in my hand. Per-
rliups you are acquainted with weapons of this kind?'
So saying, the speaker wriggled Iti
his chair and produced from somewhere behind him a small revolver.
Despite its silver plated barrel and"
ivory handle it wns a sinister looking
weapon and capable of deadly mis-
chief in the hands of nn expert. Although no judge of such matters it
occurred to Gurdon that his coiripnn.
ion handled the revolver as an expert
"I have heen used to this kind of
thins from a boy," tbe cripple said.
"I could shoot you where yon sit
within a hair's breadth of where I
wanted to bit yon."
"Which would be murder," Gurdon
snid quietly.
"Perhaps it would, in the eyes of
the law; but there are times when
one is tempted to defy the mandate"
of a wise legislature. For instance, I
have told you more thnn once before
thnt I hnv enemies, nnd everything
points to the fact thnt you nre the
tool nnd accomplice of some of them.
I have about me one or two faithful
people, who would do anything I ask.
If I shoot you now the report of a
wenpon like this will h"rdly he -audible beyond the donr. You lie there,
dead, shot clean through the brain
I ring inv bell nnd tell my servants
to clear this mess ewnv. I give tbem
orders to go nnd bury it quietly somewhere, nnd they, would ohey me without the slightest hesitation. Nothing

lnnd. 1 hope I hnv succeeded in
mnking the position clear. becniis» I
should be loth to think thnt n little
incident like this should cause Inconvenience to one wbo might after
nil he nbsolutely innocent."
The words wore spoken ouietlv nnd
without the slightest troce of passion.
Still there wns no mistaking the malignity nnd intense fury which underlay the well chosen nnd well balnnc-
ed sentencs.
Gurdon vns silenl-, really, there
there wns notliint. for him to snv.
He wns in a no«ition in w'dch h»
could not possibly explain, he could

"I wlih to let you know ot » couple of
recent curei which I hnve made by the u«%
of the Cuticura Remedies,   Last August, Mr.
— of thli city came to my office, troubled
with a severe ikln eruption. At first I could
not understand the nature of the case. I
Anally traced lt to hli occupation, as he was a
J lain ter and decorator. It was dermatitis ln
ti worst form, lt started with a slight eruption and would affect most parts of his body—
thighs, elbows, chest, back and abdomen —
and would terminate ln little pustules. The
itching and burning was dreadful and ho
would almost tear his skin apart, trying to
get relief. I recommended all the various
treatments I could think of and he spent
about fifteen dollara on prescriptions but
nothing seemed to help him.
"ln the meantime my wife who waa continually suffering with a slight skin troublo
and who had been trying different prescriptions and methods with my assistance, told
me she waa going to get some of the Cuticura
'Remedies, But as I did not know much about
Cuticura at that time I was doubtful whether
It would help her. Her skin would thicken,
break and bleed, especially on the fingers,
wrists and arms.s>I could do nothing to relieve her permanently. When she first applied the warm baths of Cuticura Soap and
applications of Cuticura Ointment she saw
a decided Improvement and in a few daya
she was'completely cured.
"I lost no time in recommending the Cuticura Remedies to Mr. , and this was
two months ago. I told him to wash with
warm baths of the Cuticura Soap and to
apply the Cuticura Ointment generously.
Believe me, from the very first day's use of tha
Cuticura Remedies he wu greatly relieved
and to-day he Is completely cured through
their use. I have great faith ln the Cuticura
Remedies and shall always have a good word
for them now that I am convinced of their
wonderful merits." (Signed) B. L. Whitehead, M.D.. 108 Dartmouth St., Boston,

"I suffered untold misery even

I finally determined to go to tlie

Two days, however, before my intending depnrture, a neighbor called
and happening to have a GIN PILL
in his pocket, insisted on my taking
it. 1 did so and six hours after taking it, the results and benefits I derived, were simply nothing more or
less than miraculous. Instead of going to the hospital, I sent for a box
of GIN PILLS with the result that I

"What tha Fanner Can Do With Concrete."
Cured After  Long Ytart of Suffering
by  Dr.  Williams'  Pink  Pills.
There is an excellent reason why
Dr. Williams' Pink Pills have cured
the moBt severe cases of neuralgia,
sciatica, and other complaints in the
group that are known as disorders of
the nerves. This group nlso includes
St. Vitus dance nnd purnlysis, and
the common state of extreme nervousness nnd excitability. Each of
these complaints exist because there
is something the matter with the
nervous system. If the nerves have
tone—are strong und healthy, you
will not have any of these complaints.
Tlie reason Dr. Williams' Pink Pills
cure nervous disorders is that they
restore weak, run-down nerves to
their proper state of tone. They act
both directly upon the nerves nnd on
the blood supply. The highest medical authorities have noted that nerv
ous troubles generally nttnek people
who are bloodless nnd thnt the nerves
are toned when the blood supply is
renewed. It is thus seen tliat Dr,
Williams' Pink Pills cure nervous
disorders by curing the cause of the
Mrs. J, C. Adams, Norris Lake,
Mnn., snys: "I nm writing you at my
husband's request to let you know
the great benefit Dr. Willinms' Pink
Pills have been to him. He is a river
driver and therefore much exposed to
nil kinds of weather and wetting, As
n result lie hnd an attack of rheumatism, and then to add to bis misery a
severe type of neurnlgin set in, locating on tlie left side of the fajce, and
causing him sucb terrible pain that
it would drive him almost wild. He
wns treated by several doctors, and
finally went to Winnipeg, where they
blistered his head nnd npplied hot
piasters which really only added more
to his misery, nnd he returned home
stili uncurcif. In this wny he suffered
for nearly six yenrs, trying nil sorts
of medicine, but never finding n cure.
One dny while he wns suffering I
went to n store to get a liniment,
but they did not have the kind I
wnnt«d, and the storekeeper naked
me what I wanted it for. I told him
nbout my husband and how he suffered, and he placed a box of Dr.
Williams' Pink Pills on the counter
saying. "Take my advice, this is
what your husband should take." I
took the Pills home with me and my
husband started taking them. I am
not sure how mnny boxes he took,
but one thing is certain, they completely cured him, and he has never
since had a touch of those torturing
pains. You can tell how much he
suffered when I say that the hair nil
the side of his bend    in    which    the
pain wns located turned quite gray.
It looks odd. hut lie says it does
not matter sinee the pnin is gone. I
believe he would not hnve lieen living
now hnd Dr. Willinms' Pink Pills not
cured those terrible    puins.    and you

Thk development of the
agricultural resources of the
Kettle valley is progressing
without abatement in spite of
the probability that the reciprocity agreement will lie rati
fieri. If anything, the agree
ment appears to have given a
renewed impetus tb the fruit
growing industry in this district. At any rate, the farmers
of tlie valley have displayed
more activity this spring than
in any previous year. Alarger
acreage of wild land is being
transformed into orchards or
planted to farm products than
ever before; about a dozen irrigation plants are being installed; the capital of the
(irand Forks Fruit & Nursery
company has been increased
from $25,000 to $200,000, and
its holdings vasted increased,
until it is now reputed to be
thc largest enterprise of its
kind in the province, and
other improvements might be
cited ad infinitum. These activities are beginning to bring
the desired results. Settlers
in search of a homes in the
best climate in Canada, and
where they can grow the best
apple in the world for the
Canadian and United States
markets, have commenced to
pour into the valley.
The strike of the coal min
crs in the Cro.w's Nest Pass
has been sanctioned by the international board of the United Mine Workers of America,
now in session in Indianapolis. Both the operators and
the miners appear to be determined to hold out to the
bitter end, and there are no
indications of an agreement
being reached in the near future.

the necessity for retreat of the
insurgents and the stopping
of washing of the party's dirty
linen in public. Mr. Borden,
wiio was prepared to retire
unless the caballing against
him ceased and an assurance
was given that the' party as a
whole wanted him anil badly
needed him as a leader, had

Famous British  Admiral.
Tells What Zam-Buk Did For Him.
Many famous persons have testified
to the great value of Zam-Buk, and
amongst the most recent is Admiral
Rodney M. Lloyd. Writing from the
Royal Naval Club, Portsmouth, England, Admiral Lloyd says:
"I have found Zam-Buk most reliable for healing cuts and abrasions;
while for the relief of skin irritation
it is invaluable."
Another famous user of Zam-Buk
is Mr. Frank Scudamore, the War
Correspondent, who supplied Canadian papers with their dispatches
during the Boer war, Mr. Scudamore
says: "Some poisonous dye on my
underclothing cnnie in contact with a
small ulcer on my leg and blood
poisoning set in. Inflammation, pain
and swelling followed. My medical
man's treatment did not seem to do
any good, as ulcer after ulcer broke
out, until my left leg from knee to
foot was one mass of sores. I had
seventeen deep ulcers at one time.
1 could not put my foot to the ground
and was really in a pitiful state. A
friend advised Zam-Buk. and I applied this herbal balm. It was really
wonderful how it soothed the pain
and aching anil gave me ease.
"I continued with it, leaving off all
other treatment, and at the end of a
week's treatment my leg was not like
the same. A few boxes of Zam-Buk
healed all the sores, and bit by bit
new, healthy skin covered the places
which had been so deeply pitted and
scarred by ulcerAtion and blood poison. The limb is now perfectly healthy, and with no marks of the old
ulcers. For this splendid result I
have only Zam-Buk to thank."
Zam-Buk is a cure for piles, eczema,
cold cracks or chaps, ulcers, ringworm, poison, cuts, abscesses, burns,
children's rashes, abrasions, and for
all skin injuries and diseases. All
druggists and stores sell at 60c. box,

Sir William Van Home
on Reciprocity
Writes  Following  Letter    Expressing
His   Views on Reciprocity Agreement Between U. S. A
and   Canada
Sir,—I regret that, having to leave
for England on Thursday I shall not
be able to attend the meeting of the
Anti-Reciprocity League next week,
and to give my views in person on
the question of reciprocity. What I
have to say on the subject has no reference to party politics (for I have
nothing to do with politics), nor to
any particular interests. I speak
only as an individual, who for tlie
past thirty years has been working
heart and soul for thc upbuilding of
this country, and one to whom the
great development of the past two decades has been a source of immense
pride and satisfaction.
To my amazement and distress and
shame 1 now see the magnificent work
of a generation traded away for a
vague idea or a childish sentiment—
the splendid commercial and industrial position we have reached and
our proud independence bartered for
a few wormy plums, and 1 feel it my
duty to join in the protest which is
heard from every section of thc country. Today we are in an enviable
position, with a commerce three times
as great per capita as that of the United States, and without a cloud in
our sky save the one which lias just
now been raised. Does not common-
sense tell us to stay where we arc
and let well enough alone?
Was Heavy Blow
The terniiniation of the old reciprocity arrangement by the United
States in 1886 was a heavy blow to
Canada, and the fourteen years which
followed were full of trials and despondency, for Canada then had no
west; she was thrown back on her
self by the Great Lakes, and she had
not in herself a great market for the
support of any manufacturing concern of any consequences. She cut
her trees, and lived as best she could.
During these years annexationists
were bred of hopelessness and many
good and honest people urged annexation as the only future open to the
country. Then came, in 1879, our national policy, and factory chimneys
began to appear above onr tree tops
and their number rapidly increased;
and then came the Canadian Pacific
railway opening up our great west,
and from that time Canada advanced
hv leaps and bounds.
The United Stales by the McKinley tariff added brick upon brick to
her wall against us, hut Canada prospered more and more. She was beginning to find herself. Then came
the Dingley tariff, which crowned the
United States tariff wall with broken
glass bottles and barbed wire, and
then Canada quite found herself.
Hear what Senator Ileveridge. the
chief mouthpiece of the administration at Washington in the reciprocity
matter, says about tbis policy of his
government: "Not the Bourbons of
France in the time of Louis XVI., not
the Tories of Kngland in the period
of George III. ever insisted nn a policy so blind so foolish, so ruinous ns
that so-called statesmanship which,
instead of fostering a purchasing market in Canada is making Canada a
manufacturing competitor." And hear
Senator Beveridge again: "There must
he reciprocity with Canada, Our
tariff with the rest of thc world does
not apply to our northern neighbor.
That policy already has driven American manufacturers across thc Cana-
dian borders, built vast plants with
American capital on Canadian soil,
employing Canadian workmen to supply trade.
Keep Capital it Home
"That capital should be kept at
home to employ American working-
men to supply Canadian demand. We
should admit Canadian wood pulp
and Canadian paper free in return for
Canada's admitting agricultural implements , our engines, .pumps and
other machinery free. We should
freely admit Canadian lumber to American planing mills in return for
Canada's freely admitting other American manufacturing products to
Canadian markets.
"We should have a special tariff arrangement with this intimate, neighbor and natural customer. This would
mean millions of dollars profit every
year to Canada's factories. Reciprocity would mean vast increases in
Canada's purchases from us."
As I said twenty years ago in
speaking of this same subject of reciprocity, it is not necessary that a
small boy should be a school boy to
know what all this means. And if
Indiana, which is a second rate state,
is to gain millions by reciprocity,
what millions must the great manufacturing states gain? and who would
pay all these millions? Canada.
What else? The other day Mr. Fielding, in a cable message to the Canadian high commissioner in London,
said that for fifty years the people of
Canada, and both of its political parties had wished for reciprocity. That
was true of the sixties and seventies,
hut it has not been true since. For
the past twenty years we have heard
only an occasional whine from some
survivor of Canada's dark age. We
have heard nothing for many years
back of commercial union, reciprocity, and all these fads which grew
from empty pockets.
Tariff Was Accepted
The Liberal party came into power
eighteen years ago. The tariff was accepted by them as a national need. It
was improved in many ways and with
great intelligence, and preference was
given Great Britain, and our whole
country applauded and was content.
Thousands of miles of railway were
built, and our ocean steamships increased by hundreds. Our commerce
and manufactures reached a height
never before dreamed of. The government, and particularly Sir Wilfrid
Laurier and Mr. Fielding, had the respect and confidence and good will of
everybody, even of their political opponents. Now out of a clear sky
comes Mr. Fielding, plunging like
Icarus into darkness and threatening
to take us all with him.
Was there ever such an exhibition
of crawling and cringing as Canada's
representatives have just now given
at Washington?
We have heard much of the dignified attitude of our government on the
subject of reciprocity—a dignified attitude which was assumed after repeated snubs. We have been told
that if there was anything more to be
said about reciprocity it must be said
at Ottawa. But at the first sign from
Washington  we  have  seen  Canada's
representatives hurrying there and
without consultation with one of our
business interests, and apparently
without consultation with their colleagues, hastily assenting to terms
vitally affecting our vast and complicated trade and commerce, and, perhaps involving our political future.
Serious  Consequences
I refuse to believe that our honored
premier was a willing party to what
has been done; but whether he was or
was not, the certain consequences to
the country are so serious as to quite
overshadow all personal considerations and these consequences should
be averted somehow. Anyhow, the
well-being of the country and its self-
respect are at stake, and the shameful thing that is proposed is surely
against the wishes of four-fifths of its
people, and I doubt if it would, if
clearly understood, find a dozen supporters in the dominion. It is perhaps not possible to make a tariff
quite satisfactory to every community, every interest and every individual, but rightly considered, our tariff
has come pretty near to this. Some
of the farmers in the Canadian north
west want reciprocity in the hope
that it will bring them better prices
for wheat and cheaper agricultural
implements. It will do neither to
any   appreciable  extent.
They should remember that our tariff wall has made. them prosperous.
They have only to compare our exports of wheat and flour to foreign
markets with our total production of
wheat to realize the extent and value
of this home market. And as regards to agricultural implements they
have only to compare the prices paid
immediately south of the boundary to
see that in most cases the American
manufacturer pays the duty and the
extra freight; and he can do this he-
cause the cost of his works is only a
fraction of what the farmers pay,
nearly all the rest going to profit and
to that of the middle man. Reducing the tariff will not cheapen the
implements; it will only add to the
American manufacturers' profit. But
if a comparison is made with the
selling prices south of the boundary
cash prices should be compared with
cash and not cash with credit prices.
Gain Very Slight
We are told that some farmers in
the* maritime provinces favor reciprocity in the expectation that it will
bring better prices for their potatoes
and apples. All the possible gain in
that way may be easily known by
looking at the prevailing prices of
these things in the New England
states. It isn't much and our neighbors expect reciprocity to bring the
prices down. On the other hand,
there are easily reached and ample
markets for these things where the
farmer of Nova Scotia and New
Brunswick may with a little effort secure twice as much as they are now
getting from their potatoes and apples, and at the same time quadruple
the demand by reducing the prices
one-half to the consumer. Take Cuba
for instance, where a barrel of potatoes yielding the Canadian farmer 75
cents reaches the consumer at seven
dollars,  and    so    with    apples.   The
Canadian trade commissioner at Hav.
e.na will veiify this statement. Our
farmers count on exporting potatoes
and appl'i. to the United States while
these sumo things are exported from
the United States to Cuba and elsewhere. Ontario suffered in her but-
tir, eggs, cheese and such things until the Dingley tariff compelled a
turn to other markets, which proved
i to be more profitable. Aside from the
fisheries, of which I do not know
enough to speak. I do not believe
there is any industry anywhere in
Canada that cannot find a way to be
better off without reciprocity than
with it; and with many industries
the question is a vital one. And
even with our codfish, judging from
the prices to consumers in the West
Indies and Central America, it may
be well that we are, as with potatoes
and apples, overlooking what might
easily be made our very best market.
Cannot Correct it
Let us not run away with the idea
that* if we make a mistake in this
matter of reciprocity we shall be able
to correct it at pleasure. We may
not be permitted to do it. It should
be remembered that there are such
| things as vested interests of nations,
1 which, real or alleged, are terribly
binding upon the weaker party. When
Mr. Hill has extended his seven or
eight lines of railway into the Canadian northwest—lines which have for
some years been resting their noses
on the boundary line waiting for reciprocity or something of the kind to
warrant them in crossing, and when
other American channels of trade
have been established, affecting our
territory, and when the American millers have tasted our wheat and the
American manufacturers have got
Hold of our markets, is it probable
that we shall be permitted to recede?
Not a bit of it. We are making a
bed to lie in and die in.—Sincerely

Indoor Life, Too Little Exercise,
Breathing Impure Air, Eating Artificial Foods.
Is it any wonder that the system
becomes poisoned with impure waste
matter in the winter time, when you
think of the artificial life we lead?
With doors and windows tight shut
we breathe the same air over and
over again until it is incapable of
purifying the blood.
In vain effort to cast the poisons
out of the system the liver and kidneys are worked overtime until they
too are played out. Then comes the
pains in the back, the headaches, the
attacks of constipation and indigestion.
The quickest and most certain way
to overcome this condition is by the
use of Dr. Chase's Kidney-Liver Pills.
They act definitely and directly on
the liver and kidneys, awaken them
to renewed energy in filtering poisons
from the bowels and remove the cause
of indigestion, backache and other
body pains.
You are not experimenting when
you use Dr. Chase's Kidney-Liver
Pills. They are unique in their com-
| bined action on the liver and kidneys and for this reason stand without a rival as a means of purifying
the blood and cleansing the filtering
and digestive systems.

How to Stop Swearing.
When Sir Richard Hawkins' ship,
the Dainty, was off the Guinea coast
it caught fire and had a narrow escape from destruction. The sequel, as
told by John Barnett in "Fighting
Admirals," was curious: "The men
thanked God for their deliverance and
as a mark of gratitude took occasion
to banish swearing from the little
Hen. By general consent it was ordained that a palmer, or ferrule,
should be carried by any one who was
'taken with an oath' and that he
<ho"'d five the next who swore a
stroke with it. At the end of the day
he who had the ferrule received three
strokes from the captain or the master. Within three days there was no
more swearing aboard the ships."

of the election petition, be held to be
his  agents.
Jt is possible, however, to have to
vacate a seat in the House under
happier circumstances than these
For example, a writ may be issued
summoning a member to the House
of Lords; and, as peers of Parliament
and peers of the realm—with the
exception of Irish peers, not included
in the twenty-eight representatives of
Great Britain—are ineligible fnr a
seat in the Commons, the newly-born
peer rptites to his rest with blushine
honors thick upon him, and low*
to some other aspirant for Parlia
mentary honors the fierce turmoil ol
another contest.
Accentance of the "Stewardship ot
the Chiltern Hundreds," or. wh=n
that office is not available, the
"Manor of the East Hendred." is. of
course, equivalent to resignation, and
is the usual method ot vacating a
seat in Parliament.
There are three cases on record
where a member has been appointed
agent of a militia regiment to ennhl.-
htm to vacate his seat and stand fnr
some other constituency.
The election of a member to the
House of Commons .an also be rendered void hy bankruptcy or lunacy,
hut. in such a case, thc seat is not
immediately vacated.
Six months' grace is allowed hv
law before the House can order thn
issue of a new writ.
A number of most tntersting cases
have arisen out oi the famous "lot
known as the 6th of Arne. the 25th
section of which enacts that, if n
member shall accept any office e(
profit from the crown, his election
shall be void, but such person shnll
be capable of re-election.
There are certain exceptions, how
ever, provided for by statute. A few
offices of profit there are acceptance
of which does not entail ihe vacation
of a seat in the Commons, amnnj
them being those of Financial Scere-
tary to the Wr.r Office, Governor of
the Bank of England, and the office
of Paymaster-General. A further ex
emptinn has been made which pro
vides thnt a member may accept othet
offices in succession to the one fnr
which he sought re-election without
vacating his seat.
India Land ol Holidays.
India is a country of eternal h"li
days. Every sect and tribe, roughly
sneaking, has its own festivals, and
these are religiously observed. On
such occasions the open spaces are
filled with swings and merry-go-
rounds, and the booths where food
and sweetmeats are sold do a marine
trade. It is very interesting to watch
the different racial types that com'
to make holiday—here women veiled
and mysterious, there women who
show their faces and wear tight-fitting
trousers instead of skirts. The people
are of all shades—from the fair, nl
most European, complexion nf the
northern types, to the practically
coal-black of the original Dravidean
stock of the south. It is In India, st
the typical religious fairs, that vou
will see the quaint originals of the
"Great Wheels" known to exhibition
visitors of the west.
A Million an Hour.
The Government printers who have
secured the official contract for the
supply of postage stamps for 1911 and
onwards have built a new factory for
the purpose near London, where they
are already turning out stamps at the
rute of a million an hour. As they
calculate 5,000 working hours to the
year, the total number of stamps
printed per annum will be 6.000 millions. The stamps are printed on
sheets of 240, which sheets in their
plain form ore worth a penny; when
they leave the factory their value
is £1.      	
His Favorite Phrase.
Once, when they were talking literature, Mrs. Isabel Strong said to
Robert Louis Stevenson, "At least
you have no mannerisms." Whereupon Stevenson look's copy of his
own "Merry Men," which she was
reading, out of her hands and read,
"It was a wonderful clear night ot
stars." 'Oh," ho said, "how many,
many times I have written 'a wondet-
iul clear night oi stars.'"
For the Children
A Stanch Little Ship
With a Big History.
»"m%    - Mf|f*—   1     ,    T"!
An event of unusual historic Interest
recently took place in New York harbor, lt was the decorating of the two
masted schooner Polly with a memorial tablet telling of ber valorous deeds
in tbe war of 1812. The Polly was
built in 1805 and Is therefore 105 years
old. She Is slxty-oue feet long, of old
fashioned model and is still engaged
ln trade. The little schooner retains
her original planking of three Inch oak,
and ber eight inch ribs are as sound*
as when placed ln her over a century,
ago. Under command of Captain Jud-
than Upbuin tbe Polly sailed from
Salem an Dec. 7. 1812, on tbe lookout
for British merchantmen. Two days
later she captured un English full rigged ship, lu all she took eleven prizes.
Once she fell a victim to superior fores
and was taken prisoner be the British/
frigate Phoebe. A few days later shs
was recaptured by u United States
man-of-war and thus was spared ton
the honor which lately came to ber.   j
New Year's Customs.
In some countries, notably ln Great
Britain nnd lu some cities ln the Unit*'
ed States, the new year Is welcomed In
by festivities on tbe eve of tbe day.
ln Scotland, for Instauce, It Is customary to celebrate New Year"a eva
wltb some festivity, which la prolonged!
until past midnight. At tbe stroke ot
12 every one present wishes eacb other
a "Happy New Year." The custom ll
also common ln many parts ot Germany, where the salutation la "Prosli
Neu Jnhr." ■■
Similar to this custom are the res
llglous "watch meetings" held ln soma
of tbe churches lu this country on New.
Year's eve. ln England on New Year's,
eve ln some houses a enrtona custom
or superstition 1b observed. At thai
stroke of '12 wblcb ushers In tbe new;
year the party, already waiting on thai
stairs, begin to ascend tbe stairway)
backward, taking* step nt each strokeJ
Every step successfully mounted means
a happy month, every stumble a reverse. Of course It Is one of thos*
playful superstitions wblcb are not taken seriously. j
A Triok Game.
Have, say, 100 toothpicks and agres1
with some one to take alternately from
tbe heap any number not exceeding
ten. The trick Is to bave tbe last
toothpick or toothpicks whatever your
adversary may do. For this remember
tbe numbers 1, 12. 23, 34, and so on.
Increasing by 11 each time. Supposing
you have the first draw, you take ous
pick only, and your oppmient can never
have u chance, for if be drawn as ninny
as possible at one time (teul you take
another one, making tbe total 12. Say!
now he draws eight ticks, you taks
three, and so on. making whatever
number he takes luto 11. Wben yon.
have got to 80 you will see that thai
otber player baa nu chnnce. Two persons who know how tbis is done cannot play at It because the first player
must infallibly win. Supposing ons
who does not understand It lo have ths
first draw, he will be sure to make •
mistake somewhere In the game and
enable you to attuln one of the before
named numbers (12. 23. 34, etc.), wbel
you are quite safe to win. .
Childless Dramatists.
Heredity, however powerful in the;
field of athletics, is powerless in the'
theatre. Have you noticed thj child-:
leesness of the dramatist? lt seeds'
that tho successful dramatist ia atl
the end of a series and never leaves,
a successor. Look down the list of
them from Gilbert to Shaw and you,
will find never a child. Further search
brings up Thomas Hardy, Barrie, M:i«-:
terlinck, Piuero, Cecil Raleigh, Mou-;
gham, Locke, Granville Barker, Fred.
Fenn, 1/ouis Napoleon Putker, and,
only Henry Artliur Jones and Hull
Cuine are dramatists with children.—

Dr.  Grenfell's Conversion.
Dr. Wilbur Chapman, the evangelist recently told how Dr. Wilfrid
Grenfell was converted at a Moody
meeting, because Mr. Moody inter-.
rupted an old deacon who had prayed!
all around the world twice and was'
starting a third time.
"While the brother concludes his
prayer," said Moody, "let us sing a
hymn." This held Dr. Grenfell and
he stayed, and the result was Him
great work on ths Labrador coast. THE   SUN,   GRAND   FORKS, .B. C.
Remedies are Needed
Were we  perfect, which we are not. medicines woutd
not often be needed.   But since our systems have become weakenedt  impaired  and  broken   down through
indiscretions which have gone on from the early ages,
through countless  generations, remedies are needed to
aid Nature in correcting  our  inherited and   otherwise
acquired weaknesses.    To   reach  the   seat of  stomach
weakness and  consequent digestive  troubles, there is
nothing so good as Dr, Pierce's Golden Medical Discovery, a glycerio compound, extracted from native medicinal roots—sold for over forty years with great satisfaction to all users.   For
Weak Stomach, Biliousness, Liver Complaint, Pain in the Stomach after eating,
Heartburn, Bad Breath, Belching of food, Chronic Diarrhea and other Intestinal
Derangements, the "Discovery" is a time-proven tad most efficient remedy.

The Brent hcnhle Remedy for Catarrh.
The rational way to combat catarrh
is the Hyomei way, viz., by breathing.
Scientists for years have lieen agreed
on this point, but failed to get an antiseptic strong enough to kill catarrh
germs and nnt destroy the tissues of
the membrane nt the same time, until the discovery of Hyomei (pronounced High-onie.)
Hyomei is the most powerful yet
healing antiseptic known. Breathe it
through the inhaler over the inflamed
and germ-ridden membrane four or
five times a day, and in a few days the
germs will disappear,
A complete Hyomei outfit, including the inhaler, costs 81.00, and extra
bottles, if afterwards needed, cost but
50 cent. Obtainable from your druggist or postpaid from the R. T. Booth
Co., Ltd., Fort Erie, Out. Hyomei
is guaranteed to cure asthma, croup,
sore throat, coughs, colds or grip or
refund ynur money back. Sold and
