Kettle Valley Orchardist
Board of Trade Bears Delegate's Report and Dis
cusses Creamery
At tbe meeting of tbe board of
trade on Wednesday nigbt W. M.
DeCew made a report of the business transacted at the recent session
■of tbe Associated Boards of Trade in
Kaslo. He wu tendered a vote of
thanks for bis services at tbe convention and for his successful efforts
in securing for this city the next
convention of the associated boards.
The questions ot securing permanent rooms for the board aod tbe
employment of a paid secretary
were discussed, but action was postponed until tbe next meeting. A
communication was read from tbe
government dairy commissioner in
regard to the number milch cows required to successfully operate
creamery. He stated that between
500 and 600 cows wonld be necessary. The members of the board
appeared to think tbat tbere were
nearly a sufficient number of milch
cows in the valley at present for a
creamery, and that sucb an enterprise would prove profitable.*' After
authorizing tbe payment of a 075
advertising bill to the Winnipeg
Post, tbe board adjourned.

after on charges of having allowed
noxious weeds to grow on their
properties. After hearing the testimony of one of the ranchers and
tbe assistant horticulturist stationed

against clean cultivation in tbe
orchards in tbis district in order to

the J. T. Shell company, of Alexandra, Ont., has finished install,
ing tbe fixtures io tbe new poet office
and returned east tbis week. After a
personal inspection, it can be stated
that tne fixtures are superior to any
to be found in a publio building in
-tbe west. Tbere is one fault, bow-
ever, tbat should be remedied,, or
it will cause a great deal of inconvenience to tbe postal employees.
Tbe post office drawers are mucb
smaller in the new building tban in
tbe old one, and as Postmaster Hull
states tbe present ones require refilling two or tbree times before some
parties can be served all tbeir mail, it
is readily apparent that the ones in
tbe new post offiee are inadequate
for tbe purpose for wbich tbey are
intended. This defect will undoubtedly be remedied on proper
proper representation to the post

The directors of the Orand Forks
Agricultural association met in the
secretary's office oo Monday night,
wben all matters in connection
with tbe late fall fair were adjusted
and otber business transacted. Tbe

wiping out the deficit caused by

than in any previous vear.

While in Greenwood last Tuesday,
Tbe Sun man was extended an in
vitation by Zach Watson, manager
of tbe Pacific botel, to remain at his
bouse for six months gratis. He
waa also accused of having an overflow bank account in tbe Bank ef
Montreal of tbat city. Tbis is not
a very had record for the first trip
out of Orand Forks in ten years.

Eddy Plank, star pitcher of tbe
Athletics, won his game against tbe

of the montb. Plank began to lose,
and _ Sheads was on tbe point of
sending for tbe charm. But now
tbat Pank has won the deciding
game in tbe world's championship
series, Mr. Sbeads bss abandoned
this intention, and sent him instead
a congratulatory telegram.

Judge Brown and Fred Clark
were two of tbe speakers from tbis
city at tbe opening of tbe Greenwood fair on Tuesday.
The local riflemen had tbeir annual sboot at tbeir range on Wednesday and Thursday last, wben a
splendid list of prizes was contested
for. The weather on the first day
was fairly good and some good
scores were compiled, but on Thursday the marksmen were treated to a
liberal dose of tricky wind, which
played havoc witb the scores. Mr.
Kirk, who won the Royal Bank cup
on Wednesday witb tbe highest pUu*
sible, went "all to pieces" on Thursday, in which lamentable plight be
was joined by Lamond, wbo usually gives a very different account of
himself. The team shoot for tbe E.
T. (Bank of Commerce) cup, which
was shot for by teams of eight men
each, chosen by tbe captain and he
bank officer, was a very close affair.
Wben the last pair went down to
sboot, Kirk's team was leading by.
several points, but bis last man did
very badly,' allowing Spraggett's
team to win by the narrow margin
of two points. The most consistent
shooting was done by Leo Mader.
who put on tbe creditable aggregate
of 96 out of a possible 105 over tbe
three short ranges, a result-which
serves to show what can be accomplished by diligent practice and conscientious study. He won the Burns
cup and tbe Spraggett cup. Following is the list of wionera:

Violation of Seed Control Act
A case of general interest to farm
ere and others throughout Brilisb
Columbia was recently brought under this act, wben the Sylvester Feed
company of Vicioria was convicted
of selling cabb >ge seed of low vitality without indicating tbe percentage of germination of tbe same
Under section 10 of the -Dominion
seed control act all farm and vegetable seeds wbicb germinate lower
than two thirds the standard vitality of good seed for tbat particular
variety, must be labelled witb tbe
percentage of germination.
Il is tbe intention of tbe Dominion department of agriculture to
strictly enforce all tbe provisions of
tbe seed control act of 1911, and
any one handling seeds should see
to it tbat tbeir Bred complies with
this act. Tbe Dominion seed labor
atory at Calgary, Alta., is at the service of any one desirous of having
seed tested, either for vitality or
weed seeds. Copies of the act and
information as to tbe same may be
obtained from tbe same address.
The automobile race to tbe Greenwood fair Tuesday afternoon was an
exciting and exhilarating sporting
event There wen three starters,
the car* leaving tbe oorner of Rridge
and First streets half an bour apart
and running against tine. Fred
Russell, in bis Studebaker, was the
first starter. He made good time
until be reached the Pettyjohn
ranch, where he stripped tbe gear of
bis car and was compelled to turn
back. Tbe second starter was Frank
Laramie, of the Grand Forks Garage
coinpany, wbo piloted a new 1914
Overland demonstrator car from
Grand Forks to Greenwood in 57
minutes, including a five minutes'
stop at Russell's car to pick up a
passenger. He won tbe race by one
minute over Burns & O'Ray's car,
driven by Mr. Stanaway, which was
the last starter. Tbe occupants of
tbe winning car were Frank Laramie, chauffeur, J. D. Campbell,
Fred Clark, H. A. Sbeads, Mr.
Chambers and Tbe Sun man.
Away, away on tbe pinion of the
-wind flew the car, the speed being
dexteriously regulated according to
tbe grade and curvature of the road.
Many birds, traveling at tbeir best
speed, were easily overtaken and
left far in the rear; horse conveyances going at a gallop appeared to
be standing still; farm houses looked
like ben coops, and Ebolt resembled
a chicken ranch. For speed, Ma-
zeppa's ride was far outclassed. It
wasa memorable trip lo those in
tbe car, but every one bad implicit
confidence in the chauffeur, and
there were no white feathers visible
among tbe passengers.

Cannon of Paper
To the amazingly long list ot articles made of paper there may bc
added paper cannon, whicb bave
been manufactured at the Krupp
works ln Germany. These paper Held
pieces are for special use of tbe Infantry. Their calibre is a little less
than two inches and the pieces are
so light that a BOldier can easily carry one. But the resistance ls greater than that of a field piece of steel
of the same calibre. It is not to be
understood that these paper guns are
ln any way to replace those made of
steel. The paper arms are Intended

James Francis Dwyer, the Australian
novelist, tells   tbe   following   story
about the Japanese.     Dwyer began
as a reporter ln Melbourne.
Japan Bent a warship on Invitation
to Australia, said he. We were to
unveil a monument In a park In the
Interior of Melbourne. The Japanese
sallorB were to grace the occasion.
Not one of the Japanese bad ever
been on shore - there before. When
the morning of the unveiling came
Melbourne sent a mounted escort to
show the visitors the way to the park.
The escort wasn't needed. At the
head of the brown column marched
an officer with his nose on a map, pinned to a bit of board.
He never looked up, said Dwyer.
Now and then he'd give an order In
Japanese, and the column would wheel
to thc left or right. Kind friends
would wave their hands at the mounted escort, marching proudly up the
wrong street, and tell tbem they bad
lost the city's guests.
Two or three times that performance was repeated. Then the mounted escort gave It up ln disgust. The
Japanese went to tbe park In tbe Interior of the city straight as a pigeon
flies to a bole In the barn. After

that the Japanese,* guided only by

recovery was quickest and most complete.
The next stage was the repetition
of tbe experiment on warm-blooded

Casting Shadows Befor.
South Sea Islanders, ln Captain
Cook's day, believed that when they
fed on an enemy his courage found Its
way Into their hearts. We may
smile at a notion bo crude. Two
hundred years ago, and more, South
American Indians began relieving the
pangs of indigestion by eating the
stomachs ot ostriches. We may imagine them removing from those op
gans any realdum ot nails, or doorknobs, which might remain there. For
a long time this rude remedy wee
laughed at by Spaniards and Englishmen. Today, throughout the world,
pepsin takes Ita plsce among the
trustworthy resources of pharmacy
and thle pepsin ls prepared from the
stomachs, not of ostriches, but of
swine—bravely competitive wltb OS:
trlcbes ln^fcats ot digestion.
Nutrition, which follows upon digestion, seems to depend upon the thyroid gland, conspicuous in the human
throat as Adam's apple. When one
of the lower animals suffers the removal of Its thyroid gland, nutrition ls
at once seriously disturbed. It the
poor brute under experiment has
pieces of fresh gland grafted beneath
Its skin, the derangement of nutrition
is forthwith checked. An extract
from such a gland serves Just as well.
A singular fact Is that thyroid glands
in healthy and mature animals contain more iodine than does any other
tissue; and the activity of a gland as
a remedy is ln proportion to the iodine
It contans. Why, nobody knows as
yet. But knowledge, though Incomplete, may have great value as far as
Lt goes. In some parts of Europe, especially In Switzerland end Northern
Italy, the deformity known as cretinism, afflicts wide districts. This and
allied diseases of Imperfect nutrition
are accompanied by thyroid glands
either withered or undeveloped. In
such cases welcome relief follows upon tbe administration of thyroid extract; Its particles seem to fly to the
places where they And similar particles, much as Iron filings speed to
the magnet swayed above them.
Other glands, ln elaborate tests, are
proving to be equally helpful to physicians. Take, for example, those
borne Immediately abov. the kidney.
They yield a preparation called adrenalin. Thle powerfully closes tbe
smaller blood-vessels, so that It arrests bleeding, which unchecked,
might threaten death. Its uses are
golden ln many seveie surgical operations. Thus from a quarter unimag-
Ined twenty years ago disease confront, a new foe, and health finds a
faithful defendei.

Brigandage in Northern Manchuria
Commercial conditions ln North
Manchuria during the year 1912, have
been far from satisfactory, says Mr.
Mr. A. E. Bastes, the British Acting
Consul at Harbin, ln his report for
1912. Even at this great distance from
the centres of the Chinese revolution
which broke out ln the autumn of
1911, he says, its effects have been
manifested In lessening the already
sufficiently vague and shadowy authority exercised by Chinese officialdom over the population.
A direct Incentive was thus given
to lawless acts of brigandage, and
large numbers swelled the ranks of
the redoubtable Hunghutzu or red
beards who Infested the countryside
and made a prosperous livelihood by
means ot rapine and the holding for
ransom ot persons and property. Such
terror did these men exercise that carriers refused to face the risk of the
road unless very highly paid, and the
prices commanded for the hire ot their
services and vehicles rose to one hundred and fifty per cent, ln excess of
the nominal figure.
The natural result was tliat far
smaller quantities of cereals were obtainable than had been anticipated,
and the local prices rose to an almost
prohibitive scale—from $15 to $20
per ton; failures were not Infrequent,
and the more substantial merchants
were ln many cases pnly able to load
the vessels chartered to fulfil their
forward contracts at a serious lose-
Instead of the anticipated large Increase ln the exports of soya beans
during the year 1912, for the haulage
of which the Chinese Eastern Railway
hod made elaborate preparations, the
value of exports ot this commodity
woo actually only some 77 per cent,
ot the flgure3 reached In 1911.
Prior to the end of 1912 the Chinese
took no steps to cope with the state
of affairs; lt Is, however, satisfactory
to be able to report that at the time
of writing (April, 1913) efficient military measures of repression have been
carried out, and in the chief producing
centres within 100 miles radius of
Harbin order and safety to life snd
property have beeu restored.
And Thai is Nothing Better Than
Dr. Williams' Pink Pil's ftr
Toning Up the Blood
It Is said that woman's work is
never done, and It ls a fact that whether ln society or ln the home her life
Is filled with more cares and more
worries than falls to the lot of man.
For this reason women are compelled
regretfully to watch the growing pallor
of their cheeks, the coming of wrinkles
and the thinness that becomes more
distressing every day. Every woman
knows that 111 health and worry Is a
fatal enemy to beauty, and that good
health gives the plainest face an enduring attractiveness.
What women fail to realize Is the
fact that if the blood supply Is kept
rich snd pure, the day of the coming ot wrinkles, and pallor, dull eyes
and tliarp headaches Is Immeasurably
postponed. Dr. Williams' Pink Pills
are literally worth their weight ln
gold to growing girls and women of
mature years. They fill the veins
with the rich, red blood tbat brings
brightness to the eye, the glow of
health to sallow cheeks, and charms
away the headaches and backache that
render tho lives of so many women
constantly miserable.
Mrs. William Jones, Crow Loke,
Ont., sayB: "I feel that Dr. Williams'
Pink Pills saved my life. I was so
badly run down that I could hardly
drag myself around. I was bo bloodless that I was as pale aB a sheet, and
you could almost see through my
hands. In fact the doctor told me my
blood had all turned to water. I was
taking medicine constantly, but without beneflt. My mother had so much
faith in Dr. Williams' Pink Pills, that
1'ie bought me two boxes and urged me
to take them. How 'hankful I am
that I followed her advice. Before
these were gone I began to feel better, and I continued using the Pills
until I had taken Ave more boxes when
I was again enjoying the blessing ot
perfect health, with a good color lit my
face, a good appetite, ui.d I feel sure
a new lease ot life. 1 will always,
you may be sure, be a warm friend
of Dr. Williams' Pink Pills."
If you are weak or ailing begin to
cure yourself to-day with the rich red
blood Dr. Williams' Pink PIUs actually
mnke. If you do not find the Pills at
your dealer's send 50 cents tor a box
or $2.B0 for six boxee to the Dr. Williams' Medicine Co., Brockville, Ont.,
and tbey will be sent you by mall,

Why he Wa. Dejected
A well-known university professor
who has taken much Interest ln the
woman's suffrage movement, was persuaded to carry a banner in a parado
that was held ln New York some
months ago.
His wife observed him marching
with a delected air and carrying his
banner so tbat lt hung limply on Its
standard, and later she reproved him
for not making a better appearance.
Why didn't you march like somebody, and let people see your banner?
she suid.
My dear, meekly replied the professor, did you see what was on the
banner? It read: Any man can vote.
Why can't I?

C. Ricardo, president of this association and chairman of tbe transportation committee, to request all
members of the association to lay
before the transportation committee
any grievance or comments tbey
have on transportation matters relating to shipments uf fruits and
It is expected thai a meeting of
the transportation committee will
be held early in November to con
sidfl-r I hi* cases presented hy ynu
An inirnediate reply is, therefore,
advisable in order that.if necessary,
the secretary may aet further infur
matinn from you or from others in
substantiation of your case. It is the
aim of   the committee   to .present
nothing to the railway company but
what will Btand the test of criticism
and examination. It is by observing this rule and invest gating care
fully all tbe cases presented to it,
tbat this association has been able
to secure for you the recent reductions in both freight and express
tariffs, whicb have tbis ..ear saved
the growers an amount estimated at
over $20,000.
In presenting cases claiming rough
handling, overcharge, etc., you will
aid the committee very considerably
by quoting definite instances in
wbich the abuse occurred. Tbe ab
sence of direct evidence of this kind
is a great handicap to your case.
The British Columbia Fruit Grow-
e-is' association bas always labored
to preserve the most friendly spirit
between growers and the railway
company, believing tbat a spirit of
cooperation between the two is by
far the most likely method of iech-
ing results of benefit to you and at
the same time sntisfdclory to the
transportation companies. It is this
policy whicb has made possible tbe
many reductions in rates and improvements in aervice with wbicb
our members bave expiessed themselves well pleased.
You will realize, however, that
changes can always be made, and
must be made, in tbe interests of
our increasing trade.
An early and careful reply will
greatly aid the committee in its ef
fojts to build up tbe most satisfactory transportation conditions' possible for our industry.

by the Canadian Pacific Railway Company has already demonstrated Its
usefulness ln bringing the two countries into closer touch with each other
and the Inauguration of Observation

This excellent work hns been the

Minard's Unlirent Cures Olstempcr
How Rock-feller Got His Start
When I was ten years old I had succeeded ln earning some money. It
was $50. I loaned lt to a neighbor at
7 per cent, interest. In a year the
money earned me $3.50. -From that
time onward I determined to make
money work for me.
So writes John Davison Rockefeller
who began to make a living almost as
soon as he could work. At 10 he
was earning 37 cents a day hoeing
a neighbor's potato fields. In 1853,
when lie was 14, he left his Tioga
County, N.Y., blrtoplaco for Cleveland.
There he got a j -b as office, boy. Later he became a clerk; then cashier and
bookkeeper for a mercantile house. He
and two friends managed t- borrow
enough money to take hold of a petroleum refinery. Rockfel.er saw wonderful possibilities in oil and he reached
out for one refinery after another, until ln 1861 he was able to organize
the Standard Oil Co. Six years later
the Standard Oil Trust was formed
and Rockefeller was on the way to fabulous fortune. He had a genius for
borrowing. Indeed, hts start was
made on borrowed capital plus genius.
He Is snld to have been worth less
than $1,000 ln his own right when he
was 30. But the borrowed money
worked for hira until there was no
further need to borrow.

Or. Richard Mtad'a Action During tht
Plagut ef 1721.
To Dr. Richard Head, wbo was tn
consultation st tbe deathbed of Queen
Anne and became physician to George
1., was due tbe credit of baring first
established quarantine.
In 1721, when tbe plague ravaged
Marseilles and Its contagious origin
was discredited. Dr. Head declared tbe
plague to be "a contagious distemper,"
ind a quarantine was enjoined. He
also proposed a system of medical police, which finds Ita counterpart In the
health officers of today. It was he
who declared, "As nnstlness Is a great
source of Infection, so cleanliness Is
the greatest preventative."
_ He It was who said nearly 900 years
sgo: "If tbere be any Contagious Distemper ln tbe Sblp the Sound men
should lenre their Clostbs, which
should be burnt, tbe men washed and
shared and, having fresb Cloath's,
should stay In Lazaretto—thnt Is,
