board of trade was held in the city
hall on Wednesday evening. President Clark occupied the chair. Tbe
most impo rlsnt bus ness transacted
was the consideration of ths following communication from the industrial branch of the western lines of
the Canadian Pacific railway at Calgary:
F. K. Barlee, Secretary Board of
Trade, Grand Forks, B. C—Dear
Sir. The following proposition bas
been suggested to me, and if you
. have the right man in your town it
may be that something can be done
with it.
There is a canning factory that
wants to move out to British Columbia, and tbe people tbat control
■ it want to handle the .proposition on
' the following lines: Tbat somebody
who owns a tract of land suitable for
growing tomatoes and other fruit
would join tbese people by putting
in his land, on terms to be arranged, so tbat it could be divided
into five, ten and fifteen acre lots.ou
which a house would be constructed
and a family brought in, used to
the growing of tomatoes and fruit,
with whom tbe canning company
would contract for tbe taking of so
many tomatoes eaeb year, depending, of couse, upon tbe amount
which a mau could bring into culti
vation. This land would be sold lo
these | e >ple on long terms, and
their entire output bought by tbe
canning factory. In this way the land
onwer and the owner of the canning
factory would tnake money by the
increased ealue of tbe land and the
dividends earned by tbe plant,
Tbis ie only a sketch, but it may
be tbat there is somebody in your
town wbo would like to look into
tbe question, and it would no doubt
be a good thing to get a good canning factory in your district. Yours
truly, John F. Swketino,
Industrial Agent.
The letter was referred to the industrial committee of tbe hoard, of
which W "K. C Manly is chairman,
with instructions to draft a reply
and to report at the next meeting.
The eomuiittee was also requested
tu make inquiries for the class of
land suitable for the growing of fruit
any attention, while it sometimes
requires a week to burn a stump by
the char-pit method. It is also
claimed that tbis method will burn
off the routs deep enough to allow a
plow to go over them.
Royal Commission Obtains
Views of Local Ranchers
on Many Subjects
The royal commission on agricul
ture, composed of A. Lucas, M.L A.,
chairman; J. J. Campbell, of Nelson; J. Kidston, Vernon; S. Shannon, Cloverdale, and Wm, Duncan,
Comox, held a meeting in the 'new
court house at 2:30 o'clock on Monday afternoon to enquire into the
condition of the various branches of
agriculture in this valley. W. H
Hayward, M.L A., the regular chairman of the commission, was not
present, having been called to Victoria. Nearly all the ranchers of
tbe valley expressed their viewed
on agricultural, horticultural, dairying and stock raising subjects. From
tbe line of questioning on the fruit
growing industry, it jb surmised
that the provincial government is
desirous of establishing a central
selling agency for the marketing of
the fruit crop of tbe province. On
Tuesday morning the members of
th* commission were taken for an
automobile ride through the valley
and at noon on that they left for the
Kootenay country.

London, England.—Dressed as a woman, a frcsh-coir-plexloned young
Wokingham, Berkshire, police constable named Albert Pellwood so completely deceived John Butler, a local
painter, that he did not know until
alter Ills arrest that he had-attampted
to nut with a constable. At Wokingham police court Butler was sentenced
to two month-' hard labor tor sending
objectionable letters tj Miss Bartholomew, of Wokingham.
These letters, lt vas stated In court,
asked Miss Bartholomew to meet him
outside her heme. She did sot read
the letters, her mother opening them
nnd Ini- father Informing the police.
In order lo Identify the writer and to
arrest him, Superintendent Qoddard
conceived the Idea of dressing Sell-
wood in clothes belonging to Miss
Bartholomew. So disguised, Sell-
wood kept the appointment made for
JUss Bartholomew
Si-llwood Id h. w he played his
part. I dresae-l at Miss Bartholomew's house. 1 wore a tight-fitting
light brown .erge skirt, a white
blouse, a Dolly Varden hat, motor veil,
feather boa and a long gray ulster.
Dressing was not an eaBy .natter. The
skirt was rather tight round tbe
waist and the movements ot my legs
were very much restricted. The hat
went on easy enough but I had a
little trouble with the blouse.
Walking down the drive I found
myself tripping, through trying to do
the regulation 36-lnch stride. I soon
came down to 18 inches. I saw Butler standing near the gate and I walked up to him. Then I thought of my
voice, which is rather deep. I pitched
it as near to the falsetto as I could
and said: Good evening. He was de-
lighted to see me, called me 'Dearest'
and suggested a walk.
I arranged to meet him again two
evenings after at the same time and
place. On that evening at 7.30 I
dressed up again, only I was not alone.
Butler was then arreBted, and that
ended my part.

Not at all, she replied deliberately

Well, that's what you said a few

I didn't say anything ot the sort.

Yes; that s what I said.

How the Federal Reaervea are Being
lhe Dominion Forest Service has
progressed farther than any other service ln Canada ln the laying out of
forest reserves and providing foi- their
proper administration. Sixteen million acres have been definitely set
apart by Act ot Parliament to be administered as forest reserves. Additional areas are being examined each
year, and some six million acres additional are now under temporary reservation and will shortly be added to
the reserves set apart by statute.
The mere setting apart of reserves,
though an Important step, is only a
preliminary one. Although, unfortunately, ln some cases lt has not
been realised that anything further Is necessary, this mistake bas not
been made In the federal administration.
The reserves have been organized
by appointing an Inspector ln charge
for each ot the western provinces.
The Inspectors selected are ipen who
have had a thoroughly technical training ln forestry and who have shown
good administrative ability. In each
ot the Inspection districts the reserves
areas are laid out In units or forests
eacb under charge of a technically
trained man or a man experienced la
timber Administration. Twelve such
divisions have already been established, and others are being organised
and manned with forest rangers as
the development of the reserves and
the fire danger may render nec-ssary.
These divisions do nrt Include patrol
outside of forest reserves on tbe large
area ot forest not Included therein.
In sucb areas there are in addition
twelve patrol divisions each under
charge of a chief Are ranger.
On each ot tbe forests, houses bave
been erected tor the forest rangers
so tbat they may be close to their
work and give it careful supervision!
At different points throughout the tor-
est,'huts bave been erected as headquarters tor summer patrols and ln
some ot the more   inaccessible   districts.     470 miles ot trails and roads
hsvs been constructed so as to make
the reserves more- accessible.     10
bridges have been  constructed,  and
100 miles of telephone have leen put
in operation.    A much enlarged programme of such improvement work
has been laid out for tbe coming yew.
A conterence ot the Inspectors was
recently held at Ottawa to plan the
work for the comirg season and the
construction work on tbe reserves will
be pushed as rapidly as possi'-> so as
to bave tbe reserves made Immune
from fire, as tbey ars In Europe, in
the shortest possible time.

tbe fall a million ot bulbs were given

FRIDAY,  JUNE 13, 191S
A bulletin published this year by
the Toronto department of health
contains Bome advice on tbe prevention of drowning whicb might be
read witb profit by tbe people of
every community. No one, it says,
sbould use a canoe who can nol
swim. No one Bhould even enter a
canoe who can not swim, for the unskilled man may cause tbe death of
himself and tbe swimmer wbo is
witb bim. Eeveryone, it advises,
sbould learn to swim; but as tbe
swimmer not infrequently meets his
death, tbrough heart failure, wrongly
described as cramp, everyone should
bave bis heart examined at tbe beginning of each season. "In the
event of drowning," the report continues, "don't lose a minute in res
cuing the body from the water, and
always try to restore life. Ten minutes under the water i» usually given
as tbe limit, yet people have been
resuscitated after a balf hour or
more. Begin operations immediate,
ly after the body is taken from tbe
water. Lay tbe body face downwards, with the stomach resting on
a roll of clothing, a log, or a barrel,
witb tbe head lower tban tbe rest of
the body, so that tbe water may run
out from tbs tbroat and lungs.
Clean tbe mouth of all mucous witb
a corner of a handkerchief wound
around tbe finger; keep tbe jaws
separated witb a stick,atound wbich
is wrapped a piece of clotb; keep
tbe face exposed to tbe air, and
promptly and untiringly use some
method of artificial respiration. The
Chafer method as used by tbe Royai
Life Saving association is probably
tbe most simple and least fatiguing,
and can be performed by one person. Most important, however,
whatever method you une, is not to
give up too sunn. There should be
no relaviug for ut least two hours,
as at any moment up to tbat period

Letter to Him Announcing Her Intention Rushed to Public Station.
Paris, Franoe.—A dramatic attempt at suicide ky a girl ot 19, named
Noel was prevented at Cherbourg re
cently by the presence of mind of her
brother, a railway guard.
The young man was swinging himself on tbe footboard ot a train which
was leaving tor Paris when a letter
without an envelope was handed him.
The letter contained a few Incoherent
lines from his sister saying that she
was going to commit suicide, and that
her body would be found ln the sea
at the end of the Jetty.
Young Noel at the risk of his life,
jumped trom the train, retaining hold
of the rail, and running along with
tbe train, gave his sister's letter to
a man at the other end of the platform, where he swung himself on the
footboard again, shouting t* his colleague to run as hard as he could with
the letter to the police.
Fortunately, there was a police
magistrate In the station, and more
fortunately still, there was a motorcar Just outside. The police magistrate dashed at toll speed down the
Jetty and arrived as Mile, Noel threw
herself into the sea. The magistrate
shouted to three customs bouse officers In a boat which was putting Into
the harbor and they succeeded in saving the girl when she was nearly
100 yards from shore. Her brother
received the news of her resuce when
the train arrived at Caen.
Official Guilty of the Aot Is Sent te

London, England. An extraordinary story ot the ease with which convicts have been able to communicate
illicitly with their friends and receive
presents of tobacco trom them was
unfolded at the Portland police court
Samuel Crowhurst, a civil guard at

with having Illegally conveyed tobacco
Into the prison. As he pleaded guilty

He said that Crowhurst did not
come ln contact with the convicts
within the prison hall but he had an
opportunity of seeing convicts who
worked apart from the ordinary
gangs outside of the prison.
One such man was a convict named
Day, with whom Crowhurst became
acquainted and used as a medium between other convicts and thslr
friends. At the end of - last year
there was considerable traffic ln the
prison and a watch being kept, a
quantity ot tobacco was found concealed In a part of the prison where
Day worked. The .tobacco was
found in a ground frame used for
rearing plants and was hidden under
Chief Inspector Ward and Inspector
Burton were sent from London to
make a special Investigation. They
found that Day had received letters
Which various convicts had written to
their friends asking them to send
money for tobacco.
They also found that Day had handed the letters to Crowhurst, and that
he had inserted ln them a slip of paper requesting money for the tobacco to be sent to Mr. Crotber, care ot
post-office. .
Postal orders were sent by frlendB
to Crowther, and they were received
and cashed by Crowhurst, who bought
tobacco, handeu lt to Day; who ln
turn put It in a secret store and eventually distributed lt among the other

Twelvs Clearing Houses.
Western Canada now has twelve
clearing house associations. In thlt
list there are included the association
at Fort William, which is almost
wholly a western product with western affiliations, and the recently
opened house at New Westminster.
In the latter city the need for a clearing house has been keenly felt during
the past year. The following seven
banks in the coast city entered the
association there: Commerce, Merchants, Montreal, Northern Crown,
Koyal, Toronto and Vancouver. Tha

Treasure Trovs on Farm.        i
I    While digging in an old gravel pit
on the Prince fsrm, near Sandwich,
' Ont.,   recently,   Joseph   Morenci.   a
. workman, unearthed  a moss-covered
oak chest containing $90 in 60-cent
! pieces.    The   coins   were  of   United
States thirtecn-star design, used near-
j ly a century ago, and showed signs
of  having been  underground  for  a
long lime.
'    Many stories sre »bout in the neigh-
I borhood sa to how the money came
, to be buried.   Some advance the theory that the coins were buried by the
' Indians.   Others think the money was
stolen snd   buried   for safekeeping,
while some believe it a relic ol a gang
, of counterfeiters who at one time hid
: in the woods on the farm.

Geo. E. Massie. the  Reliable Tailor
following "ten demandments" hanging in a dining room used by the
employees of a London draper:
1. Don't lie. It wastes my time
and yours. I am sure to catch Jyou
in tbe end, and that is the wrong
2. Watch your work, not the
clock. A long day's works makes a
long day short, and a short day's
work mates my face long.
3. Give more than I expect, and
I will give you more than ■ you ex
pect. I can afford to 'increase your
pay if you increase my profits.
4. You owe so much to yourself
you cannot afford to owe anybody
else. Keep out of debt or keep out
of my shop.
5. Dishonesty jb never an accident. Good men. like good women,
never see temptation when they
meet it.
6. Mind your own business, and
in time ynu will have a business of
vour own to mind.
7. Don't do anything here which
hurts your self-respect. An employe
who is willing to steal for me is will
ing to steal from me.
8. It ie none of my business what
you do at night. But if dissipation
affects what you do the next day,
and you do half as much as I de
tnand, you'll last half as long as you
9. Don't tell me what I'd like to
hear, but what I ought to hear.    I
