Grading and Packing fruit
While the great majority of our
fruit growers and shippers are endeavoring, usually successfully, to
live fully up to the requirements of
the fruit msrks act (inspection and
sales act, part 9), it ia to be regretted that aome fruit is still being
poorly packed and improperly
graded, and aome fruit packages are
falsely marked.
Tbe Dominion fruit inspectors in
tbe province and in tbe prairies are
successfully securing the mtrking of
imported frnit, as required by tbe
new law passed at tbe requeet of tbe
Brititb Columbia Fruit Growers'association. There baa not been a
similar readiness to observe tbe law
on the part of our own fruit grow
era, wbich puts tbe association and
fruit growers generally in an unfair
position All Brititb Columbia
growers abould be willing to assist
the association in ita effort! to protect tbe industry, by themtelvee
meeting tbe law's requirements.
Their violations are due, doubtless,
to ignorance of wbat is required.
We urge every packer and shipper
of fruit to procure a copy of the act
from the chief Dominion inspector,
R. G. L. Clarke, 155 Water street,
Vancuver, aud to read and niaste,
and master its contents. Tbit nmsi
result in a better pack of fruit, bet-
ter prices, and a higher reputation,
wbicb, in turn, insures more stable
markets io future years.

Opinion of a Famous English Dealer
In Tobaoco
The future business of the tobacco
trade Is cigarettes, said Bernard Baron, a noted English manufacturer, recently. Mr. Baron was discussing
the present position of the tobaoco
trade and tbe prospect of a cheaper
weed, and lie mentioned Incidentally
that every year Great Britain consumes between eleven and twelve
thousand -billion cigarettes. Pipe
smoking, be continued, will still con-
tfnue ln the future, but the generation
which Is growing up Is certainly one
Oat will smoke cigarettes. The largest
department of the tobacco trade Is tbe
cigarette department, and the reason
is not so far to seek. This lt an Industrial age. Working persons often
eome out for rt few moments. They
do not bave time to smoke a pipe, but
they can always have a few whiffs of
a cigarette. In the case of a pipe
they have to fill it, and it cannot be
extinguished tn the eame way that tbe
lighted end ot a cigarette can be snipped off. In regard to pipe tobacco
I repeat what I have often said, tbat
If the working man knew what he was
buying as cheap tobacco he would not
I do not tblnk tbere will be a decrease in tbe price of tobacco for some
years, Mr. Baron continued. A year
ago tbe price of Virginia rose between
10 and and 40 per cent., and most of
the other tobaccos went up from 16 to
20 per cent. Tbe fact that the
year's crop wat bad bad really most
to do with tbe rise; they had a big
drought ln Virginia, North Carolina,
and the other tobacco-growing districts
but it Is too early yet to predict whether tbe next crop will be a good one.
We never use any tobacco wblcb Is not
tbree years old, for we know tbat lt
requires that period to mature properly.

Com., De*. SOD, Bo-ton, V. S. A.
W. N. U. H4
in lhe course o- c recent paper, Professor W. J. Humphreys, of tbe U.S.
Weather bureau, points out that, as
thunderstorms are usually, lf nOt always connected with large cumulus
clouds, it follows tbat a vigorous uprush of air Is a necettary' accompaniment of thunderstorms. Further, if
tbe upward velocity < f the air ls as
much as eight metres per second—and
lt may easily exceed this amount-
then no water drops, whatever their
size, can fall through It. Those already small enougb will be carried up,
while the larger drops will be torn to
bits, and the spray tbus formed carried aloft. It appears, then that the
strong upward currents ot air within
cumulous clouds necessarily must
break up and thereby positively electrify tbe larger raindrops. TheBe ln
turn doubtless unite again, possibly
many times, only to be rebroken and
still further positively charged. After
a time, tbe drops of course, reach a
place where the uprush of air is not
sufficient to support tbem, and they
fall as positively charged rain, wbile
tbe negatively obarged spray ts blown
aloft, whence after more or less coalescence into larger drops, it falls as
negatively charged rain, Chough mucb
of the negatively charged spray necessarily remains aloft, where it Is slowly evaporated. Hence the bulk of lbe
electricity brought down ls positive,
and hence, too, the heavier portions of
tbe rain, and the larger drops usually
are positively charged, while the negative electricity is mainly confined to
tbe lighter part of the storm, when tbe
drops, as a rule, are comparatively
small. This the*, ls the latest and
apparently, correct Idea, as developed
by Simpson, ot the origin of the great
amount of electricity in thunderstorms.
If It had a weak point at all, as first
set forth, it was ln the assumption that
such storms are always accompanied
by a rapid uprush ot air, sufficient to
split up the larger raindrops; but Its
discussion seems to justify the assumption, and thus fully t, strengthen
tbe one. weak link ln the logical chain.
Why Duels are Harmless
A large proportion of the duels ln
France end without bloodshed. When
the offence ls tot very serious It Is
agreed beforehand that the words of
command sball be given so rapidly
that duellists will not have time to
take good aim. Sometimes three
shots are exchanged without a hit, and
tben tbe seconds stop In and—honor
is satisfied. At the word 'Fire!' the
pistol Is raised Instantly, and it must
be discharged not later than the word
three, so the speed with which these
words are given regulates the, time ln
which it is possible to tans aim.
Therefore the speed with which they
are spoken Is agreed upon beforehand
this depending upon the seriousness of
the duel. Tbe words are timed with
a metronome. If the encounter be
very serious thlt it set at the slowest speed, eighty beats a minute,
which gives time for taking accurate
aim. A-speed of 140 beats a minute
allows no time for aiming, and therefore ls used when the seconds consider tbe duel tbould be made as Utile
dangerous as possible.
The Mall Car's Forerunner
The flrst dally overland mall coach
arrived at St. Joseph, Mo., fifty-two
years ago laat Friday, seventeen daya
trom Sacremento. The overland stage
was the successor ot the pony express
that had been established between St,
Joseph and Sacramento the preceding
year, and provided a tbrough mail line
trom New York to the Pacific coast.
Between the Mlsourl River, the western terminus ot the railroad, and Sacramento the distance was traversed by
fleet horsemen, each of whom went
sixty miles. The riders were paid
|200 a month, but tbe danger from
hostile Indians was great. The building of a telegraph line to the Pacific
put the money express out ot commission, and tbe completion In 1869 of
a continuous line of railway across
the continent ended the picturesque
but comparatively slow overland stagecoach system. As a feeder to tbe
railroad, however, the stage continued
to bave a wide sphere of usefulness
for many years, and bas not yet entirely disappeared.
To See tht lack of Your Eyt
Behind the eye, wbat Is called the
retina, Is lined with branching blood
vessels, and a curious but perfectly
simple experiment will enable you to
see these. Place yourself In a dark
room, opposite a dark-colored wall;
then light a candle and holding lt in
your hand, move lt up and down before your eyes, all tbe time looking not
at tbe candle but at.tbe wall beyond.
After a little practice you will see
appear on the wall a great branching
figure In black on a reddish surface.
What you are looking at Is the shadow
of tbese blood vessels at the back of
your own eye. Perhaps the most
curious part of the whole thing Is that
the part ot the eye which receives
the Impression of light must be behind
these blood vessels.

They Throw Off Diseaae More Easily,
That's the Reason .
Tho tact that in almost all civilized
countries women outnun.be.- men lias
been ascribed to the higher birth rati
of girl babies; yet statistics show that
105 boys are liorn to every 100
girls. According to figures complied
by a European statistician the girl has
a better chance than the boy of attaining maturlt:*. .
He finds that trom tbe third to the
fifteenth year the mortality for both
sexes is the same; from the fifteenth
to the nineteenth year the critical age
for girls the girl's chances are slightly better than the boy's; from the
thirtieth year to the thirty-fifth the
mortality among women ls smaller
than among men, and lt continues
smaller until the seventieth year,
for a decade and a half, the sexes
once more ..ave the same chance of
survival, but above 85 years of a_je
woman again stands a much better
chance than man.
To account for thiB difference the
statistician points out that woman haB
greater .reslllenc- in shaking off diseases than man. It Is true that the
physical strength of man Is greater
than woman's but a woman's power of
endurance is more robust.
One reason for this is that woman
possesses a finer perception of her
power of endurance than a man, and
when her perception warns ber of fatigue she stops. A man does not
stop until his power ls oxhaustedrHIs
nervous system Is not as fin .'ly organised as a Woman's, and as Mosso, the
Italian physiologist, has pointed out.
men and women are entirely dependent upon their nervns for caution not
to over-exert. ■ While lc is true that
women more easily coniract many diseases, particularly nervous and mental diseases, than men, they overcome
them with greater ease.

Royal Punishment
The constraints and formalities
which surround royalty are particularly trying to youth, and while the
Queen ot Holland could never refer to
her childhood as being a very dull
one, ts Queen Victoria tn mature
years described her own at Kensington Palace, yet when her Dutch Majesty was a little girl she greatly preferred playing witb her dolls to intending to the official duties that bad
already begun for her. If you don't

Kings aa Ornament*
When European democracy continues its process ot relegating to the
position of spectacular ornaments its
crowned heads, interest ln the personality of these picturesque Individuals continues to be one ot the features ot the social order today, particularly on the continent.
The modern monarch has come,
more and more, to stanff merely as the
symbol of the continuity of national
lite, tho emblem of tbe people's distinctive nationality and sovereignty.
Even lf, ln a few scattered Instances,
he pretends to regard himself as ruler by divine :ight, his people ro long-!
er look upon him. as such.
3ven t'-e great Hohenzollern, William II, Las recently publicly Insisted
ttat his sole object as monarch bas
been, and will continue to be, not th:.
glorification of his dynasty, but the
welfare ot the Oerman people.
As ea.h passes off the human stage,
his successor, born and reared In a
more democratic atmosphere than himself, becomes more tban ever the _ -
..resentatlo.. ot bla people. The rising generation of young royultl-s, lf a
republic in form does not prerent their
actually reigning, will sit ln the chairs
of constitutional power democratic at
heart.—American Review of Reviews.
Extre.ne Old Agt Records
The recent death of a Chinaman ln
New York at the age, as he claimed, of
149 years, raises tbe question whether
the records ot extreme old age are authentic. The cases in whl.h men or
women have reached the century mark
are so numerous that there seems lo
reason for skepticism concerning
them; but the records of Thomas
Cam, aged 207; William Edwards, 168,
and Henry Jenkins, 169, are open to
the doubt that falls on all mediaeval
statistics. The tables of lite Insurance companies within the next century will probably furnish reliable data tor future Investigators.

Art and Long Hair
The hard contemporary fact Is that
the gloriously named authors are becoming sadly rare, oven rarer than
long haired actors.
The long haired muslcan Is still with
us, though one of the most eminent
masters of tbe pianoforte has yielded
something to the modern spirit by

Individual age has here a potent In-

with thing. What a wonderful picturesque person Dickens was at 26!
And how matter-of-fact ut 40! Browning suffered a similarly sobering and

As his purse wae rather slim, he approached the doctor with .many misgivings .
Here is your bill, sir, began the
doctor, handing blm the paper. This
for the drugs from the store and this
for my visits.
The. poor man looked and was horrified at the amount requested, realizing that he could not pay it all.

doctor, and—we will return your calls.

Work of the Dominion Department
of Agriculture
The report of the Mlniat. - of Agriculture for the year ending March 31,
1913 has been printed. It contains
in concise and readable form a review
of the work carried on by the Department of Agriculture through Its several branc*. _s and divisions during the
year. It concludes also the Orders ia
Council that were passed affecting agriculture.
The report ls presented under five
general beads as follows: 1, General'
remarks; 2, Arts and Agriculture; 3,
Patenis of Invention; 4, Copyrights,
Trade Jlarks, Industrial Designs and
Timber Marks; 6, Fubllc Health.
There ls also include . an appendix

Referring tc. tlie trade In dairy products it is pointed out that for the Art
time in sixty years no butter was exported to the United Kingdom, but
on the otlier hand more tban six and
one-balf million pounds wera Imported
Into Canada during the year.
In tbe Seed Branch among other
work almost nineteen thousand samples of farm seeds were tested for
farmers and seed merchants.
The Live Stock Commissioner by
means ot public sales distributed upwards of 1,300 breeding sheep, about
one-third of which were pure-brid
rams. In the record of performance
about one thousand cows have been
entered for test. These repaasent
stock of about 150 farms.
Through the Experimental Farms
system which Includes the Central
Farm and fifteen branch farms and
stations an enormous amount of work
has been done. The report not only
gives one a general knowledge of Its
extent but brings to light many accomplishment* for agriculture. In
Saskatchewan, it Is poln'ed out that
the -spring wheat 'Marquis' yielded at
the rate of 31 bushels per acre. The
still newer Prelude wheat which ripens muc.. earlier than other good sorts
was Bent out for test during the year.
A much large- quantity Ib promised for
distribution during the coming winter.
Many other useful points are recorded
in the minister's report, copies ot
which are available to those who apply for lt to the Publication Branch

It ls usually safe to say that wben

destroying the worms, corrects these
faults of the digestion and serves to
restore the organs to healthy action.

i roadways this year is larger tban the
! estimates of tbe live eastern provinces, wbicb have, as the News
Advertiser tells us, a population
j twelve times as great as tbat of Brit-
I lsb Columbia. The reason for tbis
great appropriation is not far to
seek. The government feels its bold
j on the province loosening. It is
I awakening to the knowledge that
i the voters are now alive to its shortcomings, to use no worse word, and
j it is making a last desperate effort
to maintain its bold on the country,—Vancouver Sun.
An English linn has made a new
plow that is propelled by a four-
horsepower gasoline motor. It is
much like the ordinary horse-drawn
implement, and can be tnted for any
of the ordinary agricultural tasks,
such as plowing, cultivating, scuffling, skinning, hoeing and drilling.
As it is only three ft high and two ft
four inches wide, it can be used in
places where horses can not work,
between fruit trees in orchards, in
vineyards and hop gardens, and in
rubber, tea and coffee plantation.
Unlike other motor plows, it has
only two driven road wheels, ami
the attendant who walks behind it
rune the engine ami guides Ihe plow
by means of star wheels. With one
wneel running in a furrow, the plow
virtually steers itself, and needs little attention except at the end of
the furrows. The makers assert that
the machine will do nearly twice as
much work a day as a horae drawn
plow, at about one-half lhe cost an
acre. The correctness of the assertion naturally depends somewhat
upon the nature of the land on
which the machine i.-* set to work.
The Vancouver organ of tbe provincial government savs very truly
that no otber country in the world
with tbe same population is spend
ing go much money in highways as
British Columbia and that no other
country has so much yet to be done
to make the natural resources available. It did not tell its readers,
however, tbat the chief purpose of
this large expenditure was not to
open up the province to settlement.
but to provide jobs for innumerable
hangers on, who«e votes and infltt
ence keep the government in office
Had the road grants of the pad', ten
years been honestly applied British
Columbia would today havethe heil
system of highways in Canada and
would in addition have an agricul
cultural population, with fertile
farm lands behind it, which would

The Dog and the Lobster
A Scotsman was strolling through
the market-place In Glasgow one day
and close at his heels followed hi*
faithful collie. .Attracted - by a fine
display of shell and other fish, the
Scot stopped to admire, perhaps to
purchase. The dog stood by, gently
wagging Its tall, while Its master engaged the fishmonger in conversation.
Unfortunately for the dog, Its tall
dropped for a n-fomcnt over a big
basketful of fine, live lobsters. Instantly one of the largest lobsters snapped
Its claws on the tall and the surprised
collie dash»d ott through the market
yelping Its pain, while the lobster hung
on grimly, though dashed violently
trom side to side.
The fishmonger tor a moment, was
speechless with Indignation, then,
turning to his prospective customer, he
Mon! mon! whuatle to yer dog;
whustle to yer dog!
Hoots, mon, returned the other complacently, whustle to yer lobster!

If farmers rush thdr grain on th* market early with Instructions to sell for
what it will bring, prloss an bound to
ba forced lower. Any farmer who la ln
a position to hold his grain at horn*
should do so, and those who ar* obliged
to sell to get cash should ship and aalt
only enough to carry tliem over, It
tbe selling of all our grain could b*
spread evenly over the whole season,
prioes could easily average from 10o to
ISO per bushel higher, which would
mean an enormous extra amount of
cash brought Into Western Canada.
Last year the larger bulk of our grain
waa sold at ridiculously low prloss—
selling down as low as 7Slo for t Northern; lOlio for 1 N.W.C. Flaxseed; >i)o
for 2 C.W. Oats, and 44o for I C.W.
Barley. Since spring opened we have
sold 1 Northern at lOOos l N.W.C. Flaxseed 180c; - C.W. Oats at 8-0, and 9 O.
W. Barley at 61o, basis In store Fort
William or Port Arthur, This easily
shows the hug* loss to farmers through
marketing their grain In enormous
quantities right at the beginning ot the
season. There ls far more reason this
year for prices ot our wheat ranging
above the dollar mark than last year.

farmers have checked up the production separately ot each cow there have
been found wonderful surprises and
serious disappointments. Those
good looker* have turned ont to be
poor producers; the despised cow of
Insignificant appearance ha* often
proved a splendid moneymaker when
her moderate cost of feed has been deducted trom the large total yield ot
milk and fat. Some cow testing figures recorded by the dairy division at
Ottawa, Show great contrasts. For Instance, two cows yielding the same
weight ot milk may differ ln profit by
$25.00. The aged cow may do tar
better than the five-:*jar-old. Two
mature cows In the same herd have
been known to differ ln production by
eight thousand pounds of milk. One
herd of twelve cows last year gave
thirty-six tons of milk more than another herd ot twelve. How are these
vital points to be definitely ascertained
by the practical dairyman? Such
facts are brought to light when figures
are used. It ls just as simple as A,
B.C. Keep records ot Individual production; lt takes scarcely ten minutes
per cow per month, and (.bundantly
pays every dairyman.
