Secure About $200 of Government Money and $90
of the Vendor's Gash.
Make a Get-Away
By a bold hold up by two unmasked men at about 6:30 Tuesday
evening, the government liquor
store in thia city was relieved of the
day's cash receipts, ampnming to
about $200, and R. Campbell, the
vendor, was also compelled to contribute 190 of hiB personal money,
being the balance of his month's
salary, which he had recoived on
that day. The highwaymen also
took two bottles of gin and a bottle
of wine.
At the time mentioned above, a
man entered the store, and Mr.
Campbell, who waa seated at his
desk, aroBe to wait on him, believing bim to be a customer. No sooner
had he'got on his feet than the man
covered bim with ao automatic and
commanded bim ro open the safe.
The vendor had ' no cboice but to
comply with the command, aod
while be was cogged in this, task a
seoond man, also armed with an
automatic, entered the store. The
two hold-up men kept the vendor
covered while the forced him to
hand out tbe cash, and one of tbem
searched Mr. Campbell and -extracted $90 from one of bis pookets.
The highwaymen tben put two bottles
of gin and a bottle of wine in their
pockets, and after obtaining thc keys
to the store, left, locking the door
behind tbem.
Mr. Campbell at once telephoned
for Provincial Constable Killam,
who arrived on tho scene about five
minutes after tbe robbery, but tbe
hold-up men had disappeared.' It
is now supposed tbat after tbe robbers left the store tbey crossed the
Kettle Valley line bridge to the
Ruckle addition.
Constable Killam and Mr. Camp
belled were soon joined by Chief
Savage and" the two mounted policemen who were in town at the
time, and the bunt for the highwaymen was commenced in earnest and
was kept up until about 3 o'clock
the next morning.
Mr. Campbell and Chief Savage
made a quick trip to Danville in tbe
vendor's car to ascertain if tbe two
men bad crossed the line by motor
oar. Satisfying themselves taat
tbe men were oo foot, tbey started
back to tbis city, and when tbey
reached the immigration shed they
met two men whom Mr. Campbell
recognized as tbe perpetrators of tbe
holp-up. Passing and wheeling the
oar arouod, Mr. Campbell and Chief
Savage got out of th car, and tbe
latter commanded tbe men to halt.
Instead of complying with tbe order
the men started on a run io opposite
directions, the chief taking after one
and Mr. Cuuipbelt pursuing tbe
other. The chief's man started in tbe
direction of the Chinese laundry, at
wbich point he crossed the railway
track and got down into the brush
that sorrouods McCallum's slough,
from wbicb be finally made good bis
escape. Mr. Campbell's man sought
the shelter of Jack Cooke's resi
dence, and from tbis vantage point
the pursuer concluded it would be
impossible for a man with a crippled weapon (Mr. Campbell's gun
had been put out of commission
with the first'exchange of shots with
his man) to dislodge a well armed
bandit. He therefore weat in search
of tbe assistance of Mr. Savage, but
when the officer and Mr. Cambell
returned to tbe bouse tbe man had
disappeared. ThaJ was'the last seen
of the bandits by tbeir pursuers.
Tbe tracks of the man who took
refuge behind Mr. Cooke's house
were followed over tbe river em
bankment, but he bad retraced bis
steps and then followed tbe fence
on tbe side of cemetery until be
struck tbe road south of burial
grounds. Running shots were exchanged between both ofthe bandits
and tbeir pursuers.
The bunt has since been kept up,
but no trace has been found of the
hold-ups. A couple of suspects were
picked up today somewhere in the
vicinity of Mr. Meggitt's ranch and
brought into town, but they were
subsequently released as not being the
parties wanted. It is reported tbat
tbe two men wanted for the crime
have been at several plsces sou'h of
In going over the ground the day
after the robbery,Chief Savage found
ona of tbe stolen bottles of gin where
the bandit bad crawled through the
fence at a point wbere Donald
street crosses McCallum's slough.
The bandits were seen loitering
around several places in the city on
the day of the hold-up, and identification should not be difficult.
One of the men is described as being about 5 feet 10 inches in height,
foreigner, supposedly of Austrian
birtb; wedge-shaped face, witb half-
starved appearance; wears dirty grey
tweed cap, summer weight; weight
about 160 pounds; grey coat of a
dirty appearance; medium weight
coarse shoes; age about 32. Tbe
other man weighs abont 170 pounds;
broad shoulder; wears a black
slouch bat, with black light-weight
mackinaw coat; high top boots;
olean shaven; height about 5 feet 9
inches; age about 30.
A Test of Nerve
While hunting in the Canadian Rockies one day a woman showed a rare
presence of mind. With her guide and
companion, says the Outing Magazine,
she was spending the day on a" higb
mountain waiting for a grizzly bear
that they had sighted the day before.
About five o'clock in the afternoon
they saw the bear far down the mountain feeding on moss berries, and they
immediately started on a wide detour
to stalk him. After they had dropped
down to a lower altitnde ihey followed a little ledge round the steep mountain.
Meanwhile bruin bad changed his
plans, and was climbing the mountain
to the same shelf on which the hunters were walking. As they made their
way cautiously rounda projecting point
with the woman in the lead, they
met him face to face at a distance of
less than thirty paces. The moment he
came iuto full view the woman threw
her rifle to her shoulder and took
a quick shot. The bear crumpled up
and rolled far down the mountain side,
and when the hunters reached bim he
was stone dead. What would have
happened if the shot had missed is
hard to conjecture. No hunter would
choose to shoot a grizzly at thirty paces. The guide was well armed, but
if the woman's shot had failed, he
would have been at too close quarter
to have done anything effective. Is
all happened so quickly that theret
was no chance for comment or advice.

Season's Fruit Production
in the Valley Reaches
About 150 Gars-Shipment Made to United
States and Old Country
. The Grand Forks Cooperative
Ex hange completed tbe season's
pack of fruit on Wednesday.
Manager Lucas states tbat tbe
exchange has had very successful
season. This is gratifying news, in.
asmucb as this is the first year that
the growers have practically aii
shipped under a lentral cooperative
During tbe season a total of 115
cars of fruit have been shipped from
the central packing house. This in.
eluded 26,000 boxes of prnnes,
4000 boxes of pears 'and 500 boxe 6
of plums, tbe balance being apples.
Eighteen cars of apples were
shipped to tbe old country, most of
them going to Glasgow, and seven
cars to the United States, the several
destination points being New York,
Chicago and Minneapolis. The remainder of tbe fruit crop was marketed iu Caoada.
Besides tbe fruit shipments, three
cars of potatoes and one car of beets
and carrots were also shipped out of
the valley by tbe exchange.
In addition to the shipments
made by tbe Growers Cooperative
exchange, two large growers marketed their own crops. These, w ith
other small individual shipments!
and express shipments of small
fruits, will bring the fruit production
of the Kettle valley for 1921 up to
over 150 cars.
While the price realizsd for fruit
this fall is not as high ae that obtained for last year's crop, tbe
ranchers are not as heavy losers by
this decline as they might imagine.
All foodstuffs bave taken a down
ward trend. Wheat has fallen 80
cents a bushel in price since last
June, This mearis cheaper flour and
feed for tbe fruit growers of tbis
valley, and what tbey lose by tbe
reduced price of apples tbey gain in
the purchasing power of tbeir. dollars.
Candidate J. A. MacKelvie will
hold a public meeting in the Empress
theatre next Tuesday evening.

Okanagan's Big Crop
Brings Less PerBoxThan
Last Year Owing to
Weak Demand in Gon-
snminp Centers
Vernon, Nov. 14.—At thiB time
two years ago there were about 700
cars of apples left in tbe valley unsold, but today there are only about
300, wnich speaks volumes for tbose
responsible for tbe distribution of
the season's crop.
Wbile distribution has been widened in n manner tbat must gratify
even the most sanguine, prices have
not been satisfactory. Reports from
tbe prairie, overseas and United
States markets tell of a weak box-
apple demand. While some of the
varieties reached tbe cousuming
centers at seasonable times and se
cured good prices, a good many cars
arrived wben buyers were not so
This state of affairs in the apple
markets of the world is in line with
what is happening other commodi
ties. The sharp decline in the price
of wheat has had a serious effect on
buying on tbe prairie.
According to tbe Dominion government reports, Mcintosh Red apples from the Okanagan are selling
in tbe Liverpool markets at prices
ranging from $2.75 to $2.90 per b:*x
New York market reports tell similar stories.
In view of the turn wbich the ap
pie markets have taken, growers are
not looking for very fat returns this
season. The apples that were sold at
good prices will help to level up
those tbat were sold during tbe
slump. Shippers, however, and in
fact everyone in the business, real
izes tbat tue va'iey is in a most fortunate position, everything considered
More apples have been shipped
than ever before, and wbile they
have not brought tbe prices tbat
were expected, nevertheless they
were moved, and in tbis connection
tbe Canadian Pacific bas played
most important part. The big meat
packing plants on tbe prairie and
otber eastern cities have not been
demanding tbe usual number of refrigerator cars, due to the limited
amount of stock going through tbeir
plants, rhue a large number of cars
bave been left for the fruit move
ment. While Wenatehee and other
fruit districts were clamoring. for
cars, the Okanagan   waa well
plied. Shippers declare tbal tbey
bave never seen a season wben
transportation difficulties were so
Washington, Nov. 14.—The week
centering on November 14 is expected to bring on one of tbe well
known severe November storms,
witb all its varied extremes, including a hot wave, a "norther," as it is
called by the Texans, high winds,
together with all those weather features that sometimes break into and
smash the beautiful "Indian summer" of the great central valleys.
Tbose "great central valleys" include all the valleys of the Mississippi, Missouri and Red River of tbe
North aod their tributaries. Meridian 90, tbe base line of my forecasts, runs north and south through
the central parts of those great* valleys, St. Louis being near that line.
Most precipitation of November—
rain or snow—is expected witb ibis
and the storm near 28. Immediately
following tbis storm of 14, winter
gain is expected to need moisture,
and the welfare of tbat growing grain
depends largely on tbe moisture tbat
will come from these two storms.
There will be continental storms,
and every pert of tbe continent will
be affected by tbem, the kind of
weather feature that reaches each
section depending on the direction
and distance from the central paths
of the high aod low. Tbe Pacific
slope will get the weather effects
that come with the west side of botb
the high and tbe low. Tbe frosts are
expected to tbe most important feature.

The Original Poe
This amusing story is attributed to
former President Taft, who is said to
have told it at a literary dinner. A
negro,ho said, knocked at Mrs. Brown's
back door aud  asked   for a job.
"What's your name?" Mrs. Brown
asked. "Mali name's Poe, ina'am,"
he replied. "Poe, eh?'" saia Mrs.
Brown, interested tlmtjlio should have
the same name as the author of tho
Raven. "1 suppose some of your family once worked for Edgar Allen Poe,
didn't they?"
The negro's eyes   bulged,   and he
struck a   resounding   whack on   his
chest. "Why, ma'am," he saitl, "Ah
sup-1 is Edgar Allen Poo."

Tho world's wisest and ablest   statesmen
of today have been making history at Washington this week.    If the armaments conference ends as auspiciously as it began, the tax-
burdened peoples of all nations will heave a
sigh of relief and future generations will  celebrate the 12th  of  November as the world's
greatest anniversary.   If the dogs of war can
be leashed for ton years, why not for one hundred years? and if for one  hundred, why not
forathousind years?   It  requires a powerful
imagination to paint a picture of the world at
tha end of a thousand years of peace. No rose
garden of today  would be comparable to it;
tliere would be no half-starved, half-clothed or
homeless people,but everybody would be happy
and contented, and enabled to live in comfort
with minimum amount of manual labor,    All
that is necessary to be done to make a ^start to
paint that picture is for the delegates to carry
out the program as laid down on the opening
day of the conference.   That program has the
good-will of a very large majority of the people
of every nation on the face of the globe, an d
there seems to  be no need for quibbling or

The same reasoning is infiuenoing international trade. American firms are establishing
branches in Europe to take advantage of the
cheaper labor there and of the present situa

imports on the basis of their American value,
if conpress adopts that plan.
Harding's invitation was received Englishmen,
from the prime minister downwards, felt there
was something in it which was clean and
wholesome like an ocean breeze. It was felt
that a fine and great spirit had inspired the
proposal. That is the reason it was accepted
in Great Britain wUh alacrity. He added;
"When the United States and Great Britain
and nther nations within the great circle of the
English-speaking world are seeing eye to eye
and working together to attain lasting peace,
there is a prospect of life becoming better and
brighter, not only for those of onr own race
but also for mankind in general."
The child is father of the man, yes; but there
are considerable differences between parent
and offspring. Every normal boy goes through
a predatory stage, a period when he idolizes
Robin Hood and Roderick Dhu, thinks property rights an imbecile convention of grownups, and longs, in varying degree, to prove his
worth by reaving and harrying. One doesn't
need to be a psychologist to understand this; he
needs nothing but a good memory. Boys w 11
walk miles to steal apples not so good as those
to be had for picking up in their own orchards.
Now, in the country, the boy gets this out of
his system without doing much damage; and
when he has left the slack of his pants in the
grip.of some neighbor's dog and swallowed a
large dose of castor oil as a remedy for the
pains caused by picking unripe fruit he begins
to see there may be something in these grownup ideas, after all. But in the city, the boy's
plundering hurts and hurts folks who can not
sjaud it; not to mention the enormous amount
of portable wealth open to seizue on every
hand. The city boy must be carried through
his predatory stage by giving him something
else to do. It is a question, partly of money,
more of men, but, most of all, of public interest.
When people realize what can be done to keep
boys from starting out on the penitentiary
road, they will supply the necessary moaey
and find, educate or somehow call into being
the needed workers.
The Russian ruble used to be worth ap

Five years ago Russia had the "feve." When
the crisis came, friendly physicians were called
in and, if the patient did not make much pro
gres toward recovery, he was at least in sym
pathetic hands, with neighbors and friends all
anxious to promote his recovery. Unfortunately a brutal and unsympathetic neighbor insisted on taking charge of the case—forced
out the attending physicians and put in charge
some doctors whose only experience had been
gained by selling patent medicines on the
street corner. They drove out all of the friends
and chased away all of the neighbors and
started to perform a major operation without
any particular diagnosis, and certainly without
any anesthetics. The patient has gone through
groat suffering and a-^ony, but just how much
none of his friends or neighbors have been allowed to know. Possibly he will recover some
time, but it will only be after a long period of
convalescence. Some skill will be required, and
a great deal of sympathetic nursing. For many
years we have talked  of "the sick man of
