Department of Agriculture
Will Follow Its Former
Custom this Winter
The department ol agriculture, in
accordance with its polioy of the
past four years, will continue the
fruit packing schools during tbe
coming winter. The packing schools
proved even more popular in 1913
tban previously, and it is expected
that tbere will be a great growth in
tbe work this winter. It is hoped
that this year schools will be placed
in every fruit growing district ol
tbe province were a sufficient number of pupils can be secured.
Tbe class of instruction furnished
by the experts employed by tbe department in previous years bas
demonstrated its efficiency in meeting tbe competition of Oregon and
Washington in fruit packing. Tbe
experience and standing of the instructors secured and the confidence
reposed in them by the department
guarantee to tbe fruit growers tbe
highest cla.s of instruction.
As in previous years, the local ad
ministration of the packing schools
will be placed in the hands of a responsible-local body,such as the
Farmers' institute, the Fruit Growers' association or the board of
The department of agriculture
provides the instructor, and pays
his expenses. The department will
also bear tbe cost of ths packing
paper, tbe fruit and all otber legiti
mate expenses, except tbat of tbe
secretarial work, wbicb it has been
found most satisfactory to leave to
local arrangement, and tbe 'rent of
the hall, and its heating and lighting.
The responsible organization in
eacb case will be required to guarantee a minimum of twelve pupils,
but not more tban fifteen, witb tbe
proper qualifications, at a fee of 93
eaoh, to take the twelve leeeons ot
two and a balf hours a lesson, the
school extending over tbe week,
In a limited number of districts a
double pacxiqg school can be arranged for, in wbich tbe minimum
guarantee will be twenty-four pupils,
but not more than thirty, for the
same number of lesBons.
The hall for fifteen pupils must be
at least 30 feet by 15 feet, and well
lighted. It must be sufficiently
bested to prevent chilling of the
fingers of the packers, and to pre-
vent freezing of tbe fruit at night.
Tbe department will, as far as
possible, use local fruit. At tbe
time of making application for the
packing school, parii sare n quested
to reserve fruit at the rate of 2} to 3
boxes per pupil. The harder varie
ties, .such as Ben Davis, are pre
ferred. Tbe fruit must be in good
condition, but need not be graded,
and none should run under 2}
inohes in diameter. Tbe department
will pay tbe legitimate market price
as determined' by the instructor on
inspection, lf local fruit oan not be
seoured, the department sbould be
expressly notified and w 11 undertake to eecure the same.
Tbe instructor will bring with bim
the necessary packing tables and
fruit paper.   The  department- ex
pects that he will be met on his arrival by some responsible person,
wbo sbould provide bim with all
necessary information, bo as to get
tbe school under way without loss of
It seems hardly necessary to present to the fruit growers tbe important advantages to be gained from

the way of practical and thorough
instruction in actual commercial

about the methods and equipment
used by tbe most progressive associations; also about the iuter,.iela-
tions of the fruit marks act, and

Canadians None Too Willing to Leave
Their Jobs for Training at Annual
That Canadians are a war-like people when their home or liberty Is
threatened or when the Motherland requires assistance, has been amply evidenced by the Part taiten by Canadian
militiamen In the war ot 1812-16, in
tbe Fenian Raids ot 1866 and 1870, the
Red River RebellUn ot 1886, the operations on the Nile and throughout
Uie South African war. But ln the

training period. One of them le authority for the statement that approximately one-half of the members of a

Prisoners Shrujd be Examined by Phy-
sicsna to Determine Whether Insane of Criminal
That crime is a good thing because
lt brings ua to understand social problems Is the staullng theory recently
advanced by Prof. Benjamin Moore of
University College, Liverpool, at the
recent annual meeting ot tbe British
Medical Association.    A special session was -held at which the treatment
of crime and criminals was discussed.
Perfect laws would show that we
were no longer progressing, said Doctor Moore.    Old crimes are disappearing and new crimes are arising, and I
trust new crimes will always rise.
Following Doctor Moore's address,
Doctor Passmorc, superintendent of
Uie Croydon hospital for the insane,
urged that wben a man who commits
a crime ls apprehended, someone be
appointed to examine the prisoner to
ascertain whether he ls insane or
criminal. After such an examination
Doctor Passmore Bald, the proper
treatment could be prescribed.
The Rev. 0. B. Simpson, chaplain
Inspector of prisons, who had been Invited to give bis conclusions as to the
proper treatment of crime, defended
the present penal system, especially
emphasising his belief that imprisonment ls an effective deterrent io
crime, He maintained that the attitude of many who are sent to Jail ls
that ot once bitten, twice shy.
Directly contrary to conventional
Ideas of criminology were the theories
of Captain St. John, the honorary secretary of the Penal Reform League.
All the harm done to society by all the
burglars and all the thieves is a mere
bagatelle compared with the harm
done by the law courts of England, he
Everybody knows the law courts
are making criminals day by day, said
Captain St. John. We have to protect ourselves not only from criminals
but also from people who deal with
criminals. '

Is not enough sunshine and fresh air
ln prison, and long sentences undoubtedly cause a weakening of the will.
Perhaps the most interesting speaker at the meeting was Prince Peter
Kropotkln, the famous Russian scientist and enemy of despoUsm, who.
since his escape from St. Peter-and
St. Paul prison, has spent most of his
time in Enyand. The prince Is 71
years old and has recently recovered
from a severe Illness. He was Introduced to bis audience as an old Jailbird who had cpent two years tn Russian Jails and a further period ln
French prisons. The prince asserted

It Is related of Mendelssohn at a
public dinner, at which women were
present and where he was surrounded
by a chorus ot aggressive ones clamoring for his autograph, that he allowed himself to be victimized with
good nature until Anally a .fleshy matron of mature years handed him her
card. The composer wrote upon the
card the music and wirds from Haydn's 'Creation'; 'And Ood created great
whales. This brought the autograph

A Study in Joy
Here Is a little human interest story
told by a writer In an eastern exchange. Yesterday I saw walking
along a Street a mother and her young
child, a boy of, I should say, about 3
years. Despite the boy's extreme
youth there was about these two a
pleasing air ot comradeship as well as
that of their relation of mother and
son. She was a widow, no doubt, and
the boy was all that was left to her.
.They were poor: they lived ln a little
world of their own. The mother worked at whatever she could And to do to
support tbem, and now from somewhere they were on their way home.
In front of a little store Ibat they
came to they halted, with deliberation,
evidently In pursuance of a plan previously discussed and arranged. Then
Into this little store the mo.her went,
leaving tho small boy standing outside
tbere on the sidewalk. Why she left
him outside I couldn't understand then
and I don't understand now, but this
detail, also, had evidently been prearranged, .and there he stood, though he.
followed her with hla eyea, eagerly,
and ln a minute sbe came out with a
stick of candy having a piece of paper
wrapped around one end, which the
handed over to tbe boy.
But It set me to wondering, as I have
often wondered before, as to the measure of enjoyment that we, one and
another of ua, find at the various
stages and ln the various conditions
of life:
Tbe development of delight depends
first, upon our capacity for enjoyment,
and secondly, upon the frequency with
whioh we are able to attain the objects of our desires. In our earlier
youth we might be as fully tatlafled
with a Btlck of candy aa we wOuM be
later with an automobile.

Thoughtful Farmer Ler.rns About Tea
and Coffee
Many people exist In a more or less
haiy condition and lt often takes years
before they realise that tea and coft
are often the cause of the cloudiness,
and that there Is a simple way to let
tbe light break In.
A worthy farmer hau euch an experience and tells about It, In a letter.
He says:
"For about forty years, I have had
Indigestion and stomach trouble ln
various forms. During the last 25
years I would not more than get ov.r
one spell of bilious colic until another
would be upon me.
"The best doctors I could get un-!
all the mi.'.:_.lnes I could bu *, only
gave me temporary relief.
'Change of climate was tried without results. I could not sleep nights,
had rheumatism and my heart would
palpitate at times so that it seemed
lt would jump out of my body.
"I came to the conclusion that there
was no relief fs: me and that 1 was
about wound up, rhen I saw a Poatum ..dvertlsement. I hnJ always
been a coffee drinker, and got on Idea
from tbe ad- that maybe coffee was
the cause of my trouble." Ten is Just
as har.mful, because lt contains caffeine, fhe same drug found In coffeu,
"I began to use Postutg : istead of
coffee and ln less than three weeks I
felt like a new man. The rheumatism
left me, and I have never had a spell
of bilious colic since.
"My appetite ls good, m. digestion
never was better and 1 cau do more
work than before for 40 year...

Lord Mayor Appeals to London Tlhiea
to Raise Money to Make It Public
At the urgent request of tbe Lord
Mayor of London, Sir David Burnett,
The London '-. imes ha> undertaken to
raise $460,000 to Bave the Crystal Palace which .he Court of Chancery nad
ordered sold by auction, and make tb >
palace and Its grounds, covering some
200 acres, public property instead ot
being BPlIt up into building lots.
For nearly two years the present
Lord Mayor and two predecessors had
been seeking to raise (1,160,000 necessary to make the purchase, and despairing ot completing the fund, Sir
David Burnett appealed t the London
Times to open Us columns for sub-
scrlbtlons to the amount of $450,000,
that being bis estimate of the balance
he will be unable to obtain. The Times
responded to the anpeal with tbe explanation:
So far as we are awar-i The Times
has never before, ln all Its long history
made so direct an appeal to Its readers tor a large sum of money for an
important national object as we make
today. But the circumstances are ; n-
usual and the case, ln our opinion, as
cogent as it ls Intrinsically good.
King Oeorge promptly subscribed
$1,000, Queen Mary $600 and* Queen
Alexandra $600..
Lord Plymouth, whose means and
public spirit enabled blm to advance
the $1,160,000 needed tj preserve tbe
property, gave $26,000.
A private citizen, wbose Identity ls
to remain unknown except to the Lord
Mayor and The Times, offered to contribute ten shillings for every sovereign subscribed by the end c. a certain
month, limiting his responslb'lity in
this respect, however, to $160,000.
The Times gave $6,000,</the Duke of
Westminster $6,000, W. Perkins Ball
$6,000, tbe Ilothschllds $1,260, and further targe and small sums were soon
Tbe other i.ewspapers of England
Immediately rallied to the support of
The Times, and the prospect Is favorable for spe«dily securing Crystal Palace for the ration.
Requisite on the Farm.—Kvery farmer and stock-raiser should keep a supply of Dr. Thomas' Eclectrlc Oil on
hand, not only as a ready remedy for
tils In tbe family, but because lt ls
a borse and cattle medicine of great
potency. As a substitute for sweet
oil for horses and cattle affected by
colic lt far sui passes anything that
can be administered.

.* . Canadian Peace Centenary
' The Canadian Peace Centenary Association Is now actively at work organising Provincial Committees and
prosecuting its campaign tor the coming celebration of one hundred years
of peace between' the British Empire
and the United States.
E. H. Scammell, tbe organizing secretary, has just returned trom a brief
visit to the Maritime Provinces, where
the movement haa been most cordially received. In New Brunswick, Nova
Scotia and Prince Edward Island
strong Provincial Committees are being formed, and there ls every Indication of a large and growing Interest.
. Mr. Scammell will visit Manitoba,
Saskatchewan, Alberta and British Columbia, with a view to considerably enlarging the membership of tbe Association, and securing the active co-operation ot the Provincial Governments
and the leading professional and business men ln the four Western provinces. As tbls celebration will be
more than a gathering and demonstration lt la desired to secure the assistance of tbe Educational authorities, Churches, National Societies, Women's. Organizations and Labor Unions.
In addition to the Canadian Association there are two others at work, one
In the United States and one In Qreat

programmes. Sir Edmund Walker is

Forty-Sixth Anniversary of Great Ammunition Company
Just forty-six years ago, with the
spirit of reconstruction then abroad ln
the land as a moving influence, began
the first successful manufacture of
metallic cartridges ln the United
-Hates. Some while before, when
journeying tbrough tbe West, Marcel-
lus Hartley had seen a roughly made
metallic shell or case made to contain
the charge of a gun and had given this
idea considerable thought. After the
Civil War some ten years later, realizing the importance of metallic cartridges tor the new breech loading
arms, Mr. Hartley's Arm bought up the
plants and patents of several unsuccessful factories and on August 9th,
1867, the Union Metallic Cartridge
Company was Incorporated,.-. balf century after tbe first Remington gun was
made at Illon, N.Y.
In the 60's, skin cartridges and tbose
of parchment and linen holding tbe
powder and bullet and percussion caps
had. been made, together with a few
Inferior rim fire cartridges; but now
came this new Industry more Important than all the rest combined. A
mechanical genius was sought and
found In the person of Alfred O. Hobbs
Whose master skill had brought him
the $1,000 ln gold ottered by tbe English Government for the man who
could pick the look of tbe bank of
England. Nearly all tbe special machines required were the Inventions ot
Mr. Hobbs. At first, rim firs cartridges were turned out, but wltb Col.
Berdan's revolutionary Invention of the
primer, central fire cartridges became
tbe bulk of the output. The far-famed primers developed by the Remington U.M.C. experts have enabled the
company's ammunition to go through
all climatic conditions and prove absolutely normal ln any test.
In 1873 equipment for making shotgun shells was installed and ln the
early 80's shotgun loads were supplied.
As our readers well know the two
great companies, the Remington Arms
Com: any and the Union Metallic Car
tridge Company, amalgamated several
years ago, and since have teec-. doing
business as one.

Muscallonge, P.Ike and Pickerel are
all Closely Related.
Three divisions of tbe pike family
are known to anglers, and these are
named muscallonge, pike and pickerel. Tbe gamest of the group, of
course Is the muscallonge, and students claim that two varieties are
found. This may or may not be
true, but they contuse the Great
Northern pike with tbe muskle ln
many parts of the country.
In this section we generally consider the muscallonge as the largest
member of the pike family as specimens as large as 100 pounds have
been reported, but in Europe tbe common pike often runs to a corresponding size.
Muscallonge, pike and pickerel of
course, are all more or less similar
ln shape, and their fins are of the
same number, the base body coloring
of green or yellow also being similar In the different species. In all
too, the belly color ranges from white
to cream. But tbls ls as far as the
similarity goes. In the muscallonge
the body markings are always and
invariably a dark brown or black aud
are either round spots or vertical
blotches, according to one well
known author.

The Output of Dlamondi
Forty-live years have elapsed since
the first diamond was found In Africa
*>nd it ls calculated that since the development of the diamond mines the
world has paid more than $2,000,000,-
000 for their products. This represents a weight of 90,000,000 carats.
If the immense loss froir. theft in the
early years be taken Into consideration, and the diamonds taken from
Brazilian mines and others In different parts ot the world be added to the
estimate, lt ls probable that not less
than 100,000,000 carats would be a conservative estimate of the outp t. The
value of theso in the rough would be
more than |750;000,000; to this must
be added the cost of cutting and the
profits to the syndicate, to the exporter, to the middleman and the retailer.
Among the most famous diamonds
are those ot the royal houses of Bra-
ganza, and among the most valuable
of the Braganza collection ls that called the King of Portugal, which weighs
1,680 carats. It was found ln Brazil
and has never been cut The most
Important cut stone of Brazil ls that
called the Star of the South, which
was found by a negresa in 1863. it
was appropriated by the mine owner
who gave her ln return a pension for
life. The stone was sold for $15,000,
the new owner depositing it lo the
Bank ot Rio Janeiro and receiving
on this security a loan many times
greater than the value paid for the
gem. The diamond wat at length
sold tor ten times the amount paid.
It waB finally acquired by a syndicate
and cut ln oval form at a cost rf

Indian Rajah offered more than half
a million dollars for lt, but was refused. A little later lt was bought for

The Kite In War
Kites are tb form part ot the regular
equipment ot French warships hereafter, being classed as aeronautic apparatus with aeroplanes and dirigibles.
They will be powerful enough to take
up an observer and will be used tor
purposes of military observation, for
which we are told they aro vastly superior'to balloons. The greater the
wind the more easily they are handled,
say a writer In L'lllustratlon.
The mounted kites ot Captain Sac-
onney have been used by the French
army for some months. After a long
series of experiments, they are also
to be used by the navy, which has laid
out an aeronautic programme, as follows: The use of aeroplanes is to be
limited to coast defense. Dirigibles
of great radius of action will be utilized for naval scanting. Recourse
will be had to tbe kite for lightering
the squadron as a whole a..d for surveying a foreign blockaded coast.
The kite has the advantage that tho
wind, the great enemy of other aerial
devices, facilitates Its evolutions. If
the weather ls calm, the ship makes
Its own wind by Its motion. A speed
of 18 knots is necessary to elevate the
observer. These kites, dismounted
and stowed away ln gome corner, can
be mounted five minutes after being
brought to the bridge of the ship;
while this ls being done another party
makes ready the apparatus tor sending
up. There are required fifteen minutes for sending, getting ready the basket, and installing the observer, who
remains connected with tte ship by
telephone. Five minutes Ib necessary
for an ascension of 1,000 feet. Ten
suffice for hauling in the rig and stowing it away.

Moral Clean-Up
A Sunday school teacher on the

ot the city's spring clean up, and of the
admonition that oven the cellars and
backyards should be cleaned. Thence
the drew a lesson In moral cleanliness,
telling the youngsters that while regard for outward appearance was com.
nfendable inward purity was much
more meritorious. To make them further interested she offered a prize to
the boy wbo should bring the written
or printed motto tbat best expressed
Remember she said, that the motto

for Inward cleanliness—the purity of

Animals Make Poor Sailors
Probably many people bave not witnessed the performance ot animals
when on a sea Journey. It would no
doubt be as interesting to watcb their
antics on board ship at on the stage.
Most animals make poor sailors.
Horses and tigers tuffer most ot all;
they whine pitifully, and their eyes
water continually. Elephants, too,
aufter greatly, but they are very amenable to medical attention.
When the elephant falls seasick, a
bucket of fresh water, containing seven ounces of quinine and three and
one-halt pintt of wbitky, ia supplied.
Birds, howevei, delight in-sea voyages. Recently a number ot English
songbirds, such at the lark and robin
were dispatched to Britlah Columbia.
The polar bear, too, enjoys a sea
Journey. He ls described at very
gay while on beard ship. But most
other animals greatly resent tea trips.
Do not allow worms to tap the vitality ot your children. If not attended to, worms may work Irreparable harm to the constitution of the
Infant. The little sufferers cannot
voice their ailment, but there are many
signs by which mothers are made
aware that a dose ot Mlller't Worm
Powder ls necessary. Theee powders act quickly and will expel worms
from the system without any Inconvenience to the child.
Blrdt Build Nettt In Gourds*
By hollowing out gourdr and suspending them irom tre.s and poles, an
Illinois farmer provides nesting places
tor the native American birds, the
wren and the bluebird, and protects
them trom the aggressive English
sparrow, which bas a tendency to monopolize the desirable nesting placet.
The gourds designed for wrens hara
entrace holes ab?ut the siz.* ot a silver
quarter. This is sufficiently large toy
a wren to Pose through but not largj
enough for a sparrow.
The bluebird ls ahout the same size
at the sparrow, to a different arrangement was necessary. Th' farmer
discovered that the English sparrows
would not use the gourls if they were
placed in the sun, but that the bluebirds wouid. Secure nesting places
were therefore provided for the latter
by suspending the gourds from polet
placed out ln the open.
Minard't Liniment Curet Dandruff
There It a delicious flavor about this
story of a Virginia lady married to a
man who, though uniformly unsuccessful ln his hunting trips, boastlngly
spoke ot his Killings.
One day, returning from a trip with
the usual accompaniment of an empty
bag, lt occurred to him that bis wife
would make fun of him If he returned
without even one proof ot his oft-boaet-
ed aklll. So be purchased a brace of
partridges to deceive hit trusting
spouse. At he threw ihem on the
table In front of her he observed:
Well, my dear, you tee I am not to
awkward with the gun after a.l.
Dick, replied the wife, turning from
the birds with a grimace, after a brief
examination, you were quite right ln
shooting theae birds today; tomor.ow
It would h..ve been too lite.
I had a dream the other night, said
the Joker at a luncheon table recently. I dreamed I was In business with
a rich man, selling potted flowers. But
business was' bad and we decided to
discontinue busl-ess. I wanted the
pott and flowers and took them.
Wlit did the rich man want? asked
one of the guests, Innocent!.'.
He wanted the earth, replied the
Jutllce James W. Gerard, at tha

As a child, young Walter Runeiman
often went to sea with his father, and
when his Cambridge days were over ba
entered his father's shipping business
on Tyneside. Then he c-me under
the influence of Mr. John Morley. who
at the time was one ol the membert
for Newcastle, and resolved to enter
public life. He put up for the Newcastle School Board, and was returned
along with a Miss Stevenson, a Glr-
ton girl, who polled more votes than
he did. This election had Important
results In more senses than one, for
Miss Stevenson eventually became
M-s. Runeiman.
Mr. Runeiman first endeavored to
enter Parliament by way of Graves-

Norway he received a telegram asking
him to stand for Oldham. His oppon-

Centenary ol Pansy.
Just one hundred years ago Lady
Mary Bennett, A daughter oi the Earl
of Tankerville, was so struck with tbe
simple beauty of a tiny wildling, viola
tricolor, that she collected some of tbe
best plants and gave them careful cultivation, says The Pall Mall Gazette.
The first batch of seedlings raised
by her gave such promise that system*
atic selection was at once instituted,
and thereafter the improvement of the
genus was taken up by the leading
growers. Thus to an enthusiastic amateur we are-indebted for one of tbe
most popular and beautiful ot our
garden flowers, a flower which has
marvelously developed in site, and
with wonderful snd bizsrre markings
snd colorings.
Msny fanciful nsmes have been
given to the pansy by country folk,
the best known of which is heartsease,
from the notion that it was efficacious
in diseases of the heart. This favorite
blossom can indeed boast a longer lilt
of pet names than most of her com.
panlons, a sure sign of popularity.
Among these an butterfly-flower, kiss-
