E. C. Henniger, M.P.P., met witb
a serious accident about 6 o'clock
Sunday night, as a result of wbicb
he is still confined to the Riverside
hospital. Comining bome from
Midway with Mrs. Henniger and
daughter Catherine, he met a car at
tbe crossing of tbe old Foutb of
July road and turned out to allow
it to pass. He got too close to tbe
edge and his car went over the
bank, turning turtle and pinning the
occupants beneath it. The driver of
the other car extricated the unfortunate victims of tbe accident from
tbe wrecked cen and rushed tbem to
the hospital in this city, where they
were given medical treatment. Mrs.
Henniger bad a deep »wound under
one of her eyea that required sev*

also required a number of stitches.
Both have since left the hospital.
Mr. Henniger is suffering more from
bruises and from the effects of being
pinned under the car tban from
actual wounds. Tbe overturned
car will need considerable fixing.

attitude is perfectly proper and in

to discuss the Doukhobor question
witb the association. No action was
taken in the matter of securing a
government liquor stose for Grand

for this. should come from a non-
political organization. It is understood that the association has a
name to recommend for storekeeper

A national fruit exhibition, whicb
promises to be one of tbe most im
portant ever held in tbe United
Kingdom, is being arranged for tbe
middle of November. The exhibition
haB been projected and is being ii
nanced by the Daily Mail, the technical arrangements havidg been
placed in the hands of the horticul
tural branch of tbe department of
agriculture aud fisheries. A meeting
of the overseas representatives on
the advisory committee was held in
London on the 27th of April.for the
the purpose of cowsidering matters
relating to the overseas section. J.
Forsyth Smith, Canadian fruit commissioner,   represented Canada, 8.
E. Percival represented Ontario and
F. G. Wade represented British Columbia end Nova Scotia. Arrangements bave not yet been completed,
but the following is a brief summary
of those made so far:
Date of Exhibition.—As the middle of November was considered tbe
earliest date at which' this show
should be beld in order tbat Canadian exhibitors could make a favorable exhibit of winter varieties,
Cauadian representatives urged tbat
the opening date should not be
earlier than the second week in November. Tbis waB opposed by tbe
English growers, who preferred that
the show sliould bo opened tbe middle of October. It was agreed as a
compromise that, provided the
Daily Mail were able to negotiate
for a later date, tbe exhibition
sbould be beld from the 4th to the
12th of Eo vern ber.
Classes Open to Canada.—Tbe
exhibition is to consist of tbree
'sections: The United Kingdom sec
tion, overseas sectiou, and tbe
British empire section. The two
latter sections are open to individual growers and associations of grow
ere in Canada.
Packages.—In all sections, including the United Kingdom section,
the package to be used is the Canadian standard box, the dimensions
of whicb are: Length, 18 inches;
width, 11^ inches; depth, 10A
Inasmuch as the English apple
growers are now preparing to adopt
the use of this box for their best
apples, the package for the purpose
of this exhibition will be known as
the "British standard box."
Size of Exhibits.—ln tbe overseas
section, Mix boxus of each clues; in
the British empire section, twenty
boxes dessert varrit ties and twenty
boxes cooking varieties
Varietief..— For tbe overseas sec
tion; Welthy, Snow, Mcintosh
Red, King, Golden Russet, Spy,
Blenheim Orange, Jonathan, Cox
Orange Pippin, Spitzeuburg, Greening, Newtown Pippin, Stark, and
any otber variety.
Entrance Fees.—Overseas section,
.£1; British empire section, £2 10s.
Prizes.—Overseas section, cups or
medals to the value of £300 are to
be provided as first, second and
third prizes for each ot the fourteen
classes named above. For the British
empire section, cups' to the valuo of
£100—£50 and £25 each are to be
provided as first, second and third
prizes for.each of the two classes of
dessert and cooking varieties.
Tbe question of a championship
trophy for the whole of tbe exhibi
tion is being further considered by
tbe Dail/ Mail.
Rules and Basis of Judging.—
At a meeting which was to have
been held on May 17, tbe rules and
basis of judging would be considered.
As the exhibition is altogether
commercial, it affords an excellent
opportunity for the best kind of
publicity and to demonstrate the
excellent qualities of Canadian
grown apples.
It is to be hoped the growers of
Grand Forks will avail themselves
of tbis opportunity to secure the
publicity the district so richly de
serves by making every effort to put
up a prize-winning exhibit. Intend
ing exhibitors who would care to do
so*, should ship their - exhibit*, in
care of E. F. Laws, who is, in addition to arranging a display from
Grand Forks, also endeavoring to
make arrangements for an information and publicity bureau in connection witb this district in the
exhibition building.

day The defendants were Gus
Shepherd, Joe Warde and Ed Gordon, and all pleading guilty to the
charge of drunkenness, were fined
$50 and $5 costs instead of tbe usual $5 and $2 costs in the pas-).
"It is now a very serious offense
to be drunk in a public place,"
pointed out Magistrate South. "If
you get drunk and remain in your
your own bause it is all right. Now
I have no option hut to fine you 150
each with thirty days' imprisonment for default."
The jonrt went on to explain that

Offender No. 1 explained that an
American visitor, who was staying
at a local hotel, desired to locate the
government vendor's oflice, and offered a drink to the witness if be

received two drinks, the extra one

All tbe trustees with the exception of Chairmon Henniger were
present at the regular meeting of
the school board in the city ball
last night.
Wm. Huffman, Mr. Ruzika and
J. J? Smith interviewed tbe board,
and asked that tbe route of tbe
vehicle conveying pupils to the public school' be changed so that it
would bring tbeir children to tbe
school.   The request was granted.
The school reports showed that
there was an attendance ot 64 at tbe
high school and 432 at the public
school last month.
The resignations of Misses Naylor
and Horner from tbe public school
staff  were accepted.
In the higb .school, G. B. Carpenter's salary was fixed at $2200,
C. B. Reynolds' at $1900, and Mrs.
Steeves' at $1700.
Miss MoEwen was given permission to dismiss her class in the public school on the 20th, as she has
been-chosen to preside at the high
school examinations.
The board authorize?! tbe purchase of 100 feet of 2 inch and 100
feet of 1-inch hose for fire protection in the public school.
The building committee was authorized to secure specifications,
call for tenders and arrange for tbe
overseeing of laying a cement floor
in the basement of the publicschool,
and to have the lavatories in the
annex removed to tbe basement.
Several applications for positions
on the teaching staff were received
and referred to a committee appointed to examine them.
A number of bills Were ordered
to be paid.

The High Bchool
The following pupils of the principal's class of the public school

regular manner from that source.
Now the question arises whether
the government vendor sbould be

FRIDAY, JUNE 17, 1921
As was to be expected, the inauguration of
tlio system of government control of thc liquor
trade in this province has thrown the traffic
into a chaotic jumble for tho time being. It
would have been surprising if this state of
things had not arisen, because there were
many details to be considered and the liquor
control board has only had a short time in
which to make arrangements for the more important featurns of the new act. On the
whole, we believe the act is workable, and
that all that is needed is to enforce it. Afte.
a test, it may be found that changes in the
law are required, and if this should prove to
bc case they will undoubtedly be made at the
next session of the house.
if you are a mau, to what you pay for cigars,
cigarettes and chewing gum. If educational
institntions could collect that amount they
could more than triple their present outlay.
In a recent New York newspapers that contained more than a hundred advertisements
for apartments to rent, the cheapest one offered was $75 a monff., for two rooms and a
bath, somewhere on the East side. The aver
age of all the prices was $533.17 a month.
In some parts of the province, if press dispatches tell the truth, there is open defiance
against the the provisions of the new act.
This rebellious spirit should be made short
work of. The government will have ample
backing if it enforces the act. And it is not
out of place here to caution the government
that its extension of power is dependent to a
great extend on the backbone it shows in en
forcing the act to the letter.
During the latter part of last year airplanes
were used in patrolling Dominion forest reserves in the west and the experiment will be
continued and developed this season. This is
the latest method of patrol, bnt patrols will
continued with tho aid of horses, canoes,
launches, and railway velocipedes, and on foot.
Hundreds of miles of telephone lines havo
been erected on Domin'on forests to gi'
quick communic3tion between lookout .stations
and headquarters. Lookout men stationed on
mountain peaks or high towers scan tho horizon throughout the danger season and send in
warning at the first sign of smoke, that firefighters may be sent at once to tho spot.
Where there are no telephone lines a system
of flash light signaling, using heliographs by
day and lanterns by night, has been worked
out. So far as the funds available permit the
most modern methods and devices are employed to protect the great resources in our
Dominion forests.
Only Tablets with "Bayer CroM"
are Aspirin—No others 1
For any house that is not too complicated
in design the cubic content furnishes a safe
method of estimating the cost of building. A
well-built house this year costs about 60
cents a cubic foot.
The rush for permits has not been as great
as was expected. In the metropolis of
tho province the number has not yet reached 300. ln Grand Forks the figure has remained stationary at 1 since the 15th. Whether this one person acted from patriotic motives
in a desire to divert the profits to province and
to the city, or whether he had had a disagreement with the bootleggers, we have no means
of knowing. But the incident seems to point
clearly in one direction. The bootleggers and
the evasion ofthe tax on importations are'the
chief menaces to the successful working of
the new act.
It yeu don't see the "Bayer Crou"
on the tablets, refuse then—they ara
not Aspirin at aU.

Lately there has been an undue scramble by
various organizations for donations of lots that
have reverted to the city by tax sale. These
lots are the property of the ratepayers of the
city. They are an asset of more or less value
to the city, aud should be held until they can
be disposed of an advantageous figure. Land
is not increasing on this earth, and will never
become value—unless the people commit race
suicide. The least that the parties who apply for these lots could do, it seems to us,
would be to pay the taxes and rates against expensive oil.   The result is that ore reducing
■ A famous Canadian thinks his countrymen
are too modest. While he would not like to
see them become boasters, he holds they
should not deliberately hide their light. Do
Canadians know that one of the recent im
portant discoveries in the reduction of metal
ores was made by Canadians? When the oil
flotation process of ore reduction was invented
an unprecedented demand arose for pine oil, a
product of the turpentine industry of the
southern United States, and tne price of this
oil rose to twenty times its original value in a
month. Worse than that, Canadian reduction plants, in Ontario, British Columbia, and
other provinces, were at times unable to get
the oil at any price. The mining companies,
after spending considerable money in searching for a substitute, applied for help to the
minister of the interior, who directed qhe forest products lnboratories of the forestry
branch to study the problem. One of the chem
ists of these laboratories, after working on the
question for about nine months and collaborating in the final tests with experts in the mines
branch, discovered that a waste product of
the wood distillation industry, by a little refining, could be made to take the place of the
the properties.
The Sun Man was accosted on the main
street of our city the other day by a suit of
clothes aud told that ho would never amount
to a damn until we paraded around the city
in a silk and with a gold-headed cane in his
hand. You may think it is passing strange
that a suit of clothes should nave been endowed with speech. To us the phenomenon is
perfectly clear. After a two seconds' conversation with the thing inside the clothes we
lound that it was absolutely vacuous.

A favorable winter followed by a favorable
spring means a very large grain crop in all
sections on this continent this year. This
fact is bound to cause a depression on prices.
Wheat has already almost dropped to the
dollar mark, and somo observers believe that
the price will touch 80 cents this summer.
Since there seems to be little likelihood that
Europe for some years to come will take as
much wheat as it used to buy, the farmers in
many wheat-growing districts are discussing
the wisdom of reducing materially the acreage
that they shall plant to wheat. It might be
be wise to reduce it in futnre if they can find
a profitable crop to put in in place of it.

Spring and summer bring tho
urge of vacation travel and change
of scene. Each season sees new
resorts come into popularity .vhile
others wane. Resorts may floutish
and fade, but one summer outing
never loses its charm for old
friends and is constantly acquiring
new admirers, and that is a vacation spent on a Great Lakes'
Thousands of vacationists make
the trip to beautiful Georgian Bay
with its Thousand Islands clustered
about Ontario's resort dotted shore.
Other thousands, sailing from Toronto or Port McNicoll, head westward and northward through Erie
and Huron .into that inland sea of
dark blue water, Lake Superior,
The round trip from Port McNicoll on Georgian Bay, to Fort

Perhaps the chief point of interest on this trip is the passage
through the famous "Soo" Canal
where ships of all sorts and sizes
are lifted from Huron into Superior
by the canal locks. Many millions
of dollars of Canadian and American money have gone into the construction of this canal and it is
operated jointly by the two governments.    There are   two   canals, an
American and a Canadian, but the*

to promote transportation through

I    Scenes of a Forest Fire.
I It was only during recent
that the public ot Canada begin to
fullv reat)ze the value of the trees
Ot tne coijntry and the necessity for
protecting them. One never knows
the worth ot* a tree until its shade
is gone. Canada was so rich In forests that the people Imagined that
their forests were Inexhaustible. But
year after year devastating fires
swept over tne wooded areas to such
an alarming extent that the people
at last realized that steps would
have to be taken to save the trees.
Twenty years ago the Ciinadiun
Forestry Association wus inaugurated. To-day under the presidency
of Mr. 0. E. r_. Ussher. passenger
traffic manager of the Canadian
Pacific Railway, it Is one of the
most flourishing organisations in the
The produce of the forests is one
of the greatest assets of Canada.
The pulp and paper business and the
lumber business supply tens of thousands with profitable employment.
The object of the Canadian Forestry
Association is to preserve existing
forests, to encourage tree planting,
and provide the most up to date forestry administration.
The Association has now 12,500
members, the majority of, whom are
not financially interested in timber
limits, saw mills or paper mills. It
is completely independent of government departments nnd commercial
bodies and has the more easily, on
that account, won public confidence
and attained great influence through
Its aggressive educational campaign.
From the beginning the association
has aimed to encourage a spirit of
intelligent partnership between the
federal and provincial governments
and the wood-using industries in connection with the protection and management of the forests.
To diminish much more than in
the past tha destruction of the forests by fire is considered by the association to be by far the most important problem. After that It gives
due consideration to replanting and
general forest management The
very effective results of its educa
tonal campaign are due to the
variety of practical methods that
are followed. These include publicity work through the newspapers:
a speaker's bureau of three hundred
voluntary workers: travelling lecture cars in the East and In the
West; the preparation of travelling
The new Forest Fire Finder, an instrument recently
invented to locate a fire quickly. It is expected to reduce
the danger and loss from fires to a minimum. The instrument has been installed in the look-out towers in California
forests and a fire can be detected 50 miles away. ,
structlng a shelter built of trees by
showing them exactly how to proceed and supplying complete data to
lecture sets of lantern slides, and
lecture manuscripts; an illustrated
forestry magazine; the placing of
"sermonettes" on the menu cards in
railway dining-cars, and little warnings in cigarette packages, etc.
Tree planting in the Prairie Provinces is making rapid headway at
present. On April 10th, 1921, a tree
planting campaign was started.
There nre now more than 60,000
plantations of trees in the three
prairie provinces, and more than
50,000,000 seedlings have been furnished from the Dominion Government nursery at Indian Head, to
prairie farmers. Fully 90 per cent,
of them have been successfully
grown. A railway car equipped as
an auditorium with motion picture
machines visits many districts, and
lecturers explain the object of the
tree planting campaign. It is expected, that 200 prairie communities will be covered before the present tour closes.
The primary object is to enlist the
personal interest of settlers in con-
ensure success.
"The economic importance ot constructing windbreaks of trees," said
Mr. Robson Black, executive secretary of the Canadian Forestry Association "cannot be overstated.
Thick shelter belts are a powerful
preventive of soil drift, and of wind
damage to crops. A thick growth of
trees protects the land to a distance
ci I ual to ten times the height of the
trees. There is also to be considered
the need, of every farmer for fenc*
posts and fuel and small construction timber. He may very easily
and cheaply produce such necessities on his own property.
"Our tree planting campaigns ar*
heartily endorsed by agriculturists
and foresters for they are thoroughly practicable. They have the financial backing of one of the prairie
provinces, Saskatchewan, and of the
railways, land companies, and several wholesale bouses in Wmajpeg."
Trust Her for That
On the authority of Answers we
have it that Mrs. Bilffkins met Mary
Smith, whom she had recommended
to a neighbor for a position. "How
are you getting on at your new
place?" asked Mrs. Blifikfns.
"Very well, thank you," waa the
"I am glad to hear it," remarked
Mrs. Bliffkioe. "Yonr employer is
a very nice lady, and you can not do
too much for her."
' "I don't mean to ma'am,"
plied Mary.
The Foolish Mun
There was a man in our town,
And he would never learn;
He went upjn a fishing trip
And let his * amp-fire burn.
Ob, swiftly spread tbe forest fire
And many homes it burned,
And from that little fishing trip
That man has ne'er returned.
