financing and in other  ways carrying on its business.
The speaker pointed out tbat in
California financing was made much
easier, because when the union had
a five year contract witb a grower
the banks were more ready to advance loins, for they knew tbat tbe
association wae not a yearly affair
but rather a permanent institution,
organized for tbe betterment of tbe
industry and in tbe best interests of
the growers. The idea was approved
by tbe meeting, judging by the
hearty applause with which Mr.
Barnes was received.
Boy Scout News
On Saturday last week the Local
Troop of Scouts played a most successful scout game, tbe first they
bave attempted. Tbe game consisted
of taking dispatches to six different
houses in tbe d strict, getting them
signed and bringing them back to
headquarters within a certain time.
Two patrols acted as "runners" and'
tbe rest as "outposts." Tbe runners
showed considerably more ability
than the outposts, winning tbe game
by a margin of 190 marks, four out
of six dispatches being carrivd safely
tbrough. Some of tbe outposts had
either omitted to read the rules of
the game or had at any rate forgotten them, and in consequence gave
away a considerable number of
marks. However, Ue game went
very well for a first attempt.
We hope to have our next game
on Saturday, December 31.

A new idea in cooperative organization, in so far as the valley is concerned, was outlined at a fruit growers' meeting held here, by C. E.
Barnes, the organization manager of
the Okanagan United Growers' says
a dispatch from Vernon.
Mr. Barnes told of the success he
was meeting in signing up the growers on tbe five-year contract basis.
This has been carried out in California with great success, and wherever he had approached growers in
British Columbia they bad given
their approval.
In Grand Forks, Walbachio and
a number of Okanagan shipping
centers the growers were signing tbe
new agreements, wbich would great

Contract for Irrigation
Pipe Sent to Victoria

Approval ■
At a meeting of the trustees of the
Grand Forks irrigation municipality
on Wednesday evening a contract
was drafted and approved by the
trustees with tbe Spokane Concrete
Pipe company for supplying concrete
pipe for the No. 1 unit of the irrigation eystem. The pipe is to be
made of reinforced concrete, and
about $155,000 is involved in the
contract.
After passing the contract, the
rtustees ordered it forwarded to Victoria for approval by the government. If the government approves
the contract, a plant will be installed here and local labor will be
used in manufacturing tbe pipe. -

THE UPGRADE
United States Sets New
Monthly Record in Use
of Gopper—Sale of Surplus Stocks
Figures now available show that
the consumption of copper in the
Uniied Slates during October was
170,000,000 pounds. This beats all
previous records in monthly consumption, even tbose established in
war time, producers siy.
The last of the British supp'y of
scrap copper—aftermath of the war
—has just been disponed of by tbe
war disposals board, advices state.
This 25,000,000 pounds was instantly absorbed by the market and England is now in the potential buyers'
column.
These two factors have bad a very
strengthening effect upon the Ameri
can   copper   market.    The   largest
metal sales   agency  in  Iho Unitod
States has refused   to   sell   copper
either for domestic consumption   or
export   at   15 cunts a pound.    This
same   -joncern   attempted   without
success   to secure   from tha copper
export corporation 100,000,000 lbs.
of copper to augment its fast-vanishing   domestic  stocks.    Tho Copper
Export association, whicli    was organized a yoar ago to move the-lOO,-
000,000   surplus   which   was  then
glutting the market, refused to consider tbis proposition, it is stated.
With many of the principal Uni*
ted States producers closed down
and in no position to resume operations for two or three months at
least, local copper men look to a dis
tinct revival in the industry in this
province.
The days of very low-priced cop«
per, when prices hovered between
11 and 12'cents, have been definite*
ly passer1, men in toucb witb market conditions think.

If anything happens to the North American
continent during tho next few years, blame it
to the newspapers. President Harding is a
newspaperman, and the new prime minister of
Canada i.s a newspaperman. The member for
Yale is also a newspaperman, bnt as he belongs to the wrong political party, his profession doesn't count.
.There may be some governments willing to
ignore their obligations to the United States.
There is one countjy that certainly will never
dispute an obligation which she has once issued.
England's greatness depends entirely upon her
reputation for commercial probity, says Repre
sentative W. Bourne Cochran of New York.
She was not the leading country of the world
when the Bank of Edgland was established
about the same time that the system of coinage
established on the advice of Locke and Newton assured every man who deposited a thousand pounds in an England bank, that he would
getj it back in money of precisely the
same value. It was this reputation for com
mercial probity that made her the depository
of the money of the whole world. The world
has for many years divided at the feet of England, not because of her fleets or her armies,
but because her commercial probity has never
baen questioned.
The Crow nation has adopted Gen. Diaz,
the commander of the Italian army on the
Piave, into its ranks and made him a chief
under the name of Plenty Coups. The ceremonies took place iu a hotel room in Washington instead of round a prairie campfire,
but there were picturesqne dances and songs,
accompanied by the beating of the tom-tom,
and all the symbolic rites were observed. In
his youth Gen. Diaz, iike many another boy,
was an ardent devourer of Indian tales and
takes as much pridfe in the distinction the red
men have given him as in the many military
decorations that he has won.

■ crs looking out of tha train-window
are attracted by a curious rustic-
Blgn bearing the words "Thc Grea'.
Divide."
blanking it on eaeh side in similar
i'U3tic letter nre the words "Alberta"
and  "British  Columhia."
It is at this point that the two
Provinces of "Alberta" and "British
Columbia" bound each other. But
the sign was evidently not put up
here especially on that account. If
it had been, tliere is no reason why
every "other Canadian province
should not have its boundaries similarly set forth. In fnct such a sign
might indeed be very welcome to
tha. tourist, en route across Canada,
who, often does not know, as things
now are, whether he voyages in
Saskatchewan or Alberta. And most
commuters think that all the Rockies
belong to British Columbia, politically as well as geologically.     .
No this sign was not put here to
"Divide" neighbors. It is here to
call attention to a most wonderful
and at the same time simple feat In
nature. Thc division of the wafers

You step out of the train with the
fither passengers not at all knowing
what you are to see (if this be your
first trip). About you, are trees
around the little clearing, and overhead, the howl of the blue sky. There
are no houses in sight. You wonder
\vhat it is all about.
You aay to yourself, "Something
important all right to halt the Imperial Limited." And then you como
to the other passengers with a question on your lips. Al that mo-men'
■in official comes along answering
the line of questions. "Yes, yes,"
says he, with the broad'smile and a
good nature which in itself stretches
away across continent—"This is the
Great Divide of the Streams." And
