Allan B. Kirk, representing tbe
Everfresb company, of Vancouver,
has beeu iu tbe oity this week exhibiting a new process of preserving
fruits and vegetables. By tbe new
method all kinds of fruits und vegetables cau be kept iu their natural
state for an indefinite period.
The process consists of extracting
tbe wuter from the urticle of loud
wbicb it is desired to preserve. Alter
ibis is done it is as dry us u Saratoga
chip, is impervious to heat or cold,
uud cau be stored for au indefinite
lime without danger of deterioration. When it is desired to use the
urticle, il is restored tu ils natural
siute by placing it in water. It is
claimed un article preserved iu this
manner does not lose ils natural
flavor, &s nothing is extruded from
it but tbe wuter, aud thai is repluced
befure it is used.
i his method appears to possess
many advantages over any other
process of preserving orchard aud
farm products. Its scope is wider
i-imi u (tannery; potatoes, green
coin, cauliflower, beds, carrots, uud,
iu tact, every vuriety of vegcluble,
can be successfully treated iu this
manner. Il is lbe cheapest process
yel devised; alter tbe pluut is once
installed, the expenses, except fur
labor, practically cease. Transportation charges are materially reduced; one pound of tbe evuperaied
product will make about seven
pounds wbeu it is restored to ils
natural state. Less storage room is
required, and, lastly, tbe consumer

greatest ud vantage of the system is,

The Loading Platform
The present generation of W'.Btern farmer; mil never know th»
difficulties ani vexation* experienced by the'.r predecessors la ths
earlier years when no one could get a carload of grain shipped In
bulk except by loading it through an elevator The ayatem forced
the majority of farmera to sell tieir grain to tbe elevator owners
at arbitrary prices, and oft times to submit to heavy dockage; aal
other annoyances, causing continual dissatisfaction. Nov, however,
the distribution of cars as fixed by tha Grain Act and the uae of the
loading platfarm. provide facllltha which enable the farmer to secure
satisfactory treatment In the disposal of hla grain, and the highest
market prices at time of eale. 3very farmer therefore, should more
and more oudeavoi- to use the loading plallorm Ir shipping his grain
to the terminal elevatorB. It ta tho saleRiinrd of the farmers' freedom In dlsno.Ing of his grain to the best advantage for himself. II
farmers refrain from using the loading plnlform freely, it might result ln Its being done away with, becauie railway companies aad
elevator ownora are strongly opposed to lt. lt in easy to understand
why elevator peopla desire the loading platform abolished. The railway people oi their part say It delays the loading of caraand helps to
ensure car shortage. Thia we know U bo nonsenae. because frequently after ears ara loaded, whether with grain, coal, lumber, er
other merchandise, they are eld I tracked for days and even weeks
Instead ot being promptly moved forward to destination. It la engine

Rates and the Cost of Living
A citizen ot Western Canada la
breakfasting at an Ottawa hotel oa
bread and butter, bacon, eggs and
coffee. The waiter hands him the
bill, which la more than It used to be
when he was there a few years ago,
and, ot course, he lays thc blame on
rail rates.
Let us consider the facts. Tbe
rate on flour from Winnipeg to Ottawa in car-load lots, all-rail, ls 30 cents
per 100 pounds, say CO cents tor a
barrel of 198 pounds. Manitoba flour
being strong and well-matured, the
Ottawa baker ls able to make 190
loaves, each weighing 1',': pounds, from
a barrel, the addition of water and
yeast accounting foi- thc seemingly
miraculous Increase In the flour. Assuming that our friend cal3 heartily
of bread, we get down to this sum
In Rule of Three:—-If tho rail rate on
the principal raw material ot 196
loaves ls 60 cents, what portion of It
ls paid by the consumer of half a loaf.
Tho hotel pays Ave cents or so per
loaf, but may charge him twice or
thrco times that much for tal! a one.
In any event lt 13 evident that the
rail rate constitutes the merest fraction of the flrst cost of the bread,
That a barrel of flour should bs carried 1300 miles for 60 cents 48, lf one
comes to think of lt, nothlnf short of
wonderful. In Eastern Canada lt
costs 25 cenl3 or thereabouts tc move
a barrel by horse and wagon from tbe
railway station to the nc-arcst house
In town.
Tlie bacon Is brought to Ottawa from
Toronto nnd the Canadian Pacific rate
for car-load lots ls 20 cents per 100
pounds. Tho butte." and eggs come
from Smith's Falls and the rate for
lem, than car-load lots is IS and 19
cents per 100 pounds respectively. We
need not trouble ourselves about the
Bacon rotatU ln Ottawa Just now
tor 25 aud butter for 30 cents per
pound, and eggs for 30 cents per dozen. Onco more, therefore, the rail
rato is a wholly Insignificant factor
in tho composition of the price, and
consequently ln the Westerner's hotel
Here, however, we seo the beneficent working of tho principle of
charging what tho traffic will bear,
which ho says ls an outrageous prin-
clplo because lt means that the railways mulct tho settlor for all ho can
pay and live. In reality lt means
qulto tho opposite. , The bacon, butter and oggs pay a higher rate by a
good deal ln proportion to length of
haul than the (lour, ln order that the
flour may bo shipped from Manitoba
to distant markets and leave the miller and tho farmer a tolerably good
profit. But for this system the Canadian West w.ould still bc to a great
extent a desert placo.

After many months of patient
waiting, we hnve at last been made
acquainted with Premier Borden's
naval policy. Every Canadian must
realize that it is the most m<>rja<!ntous
and far-reacbing measure intra
duced in the Canadian parliament
since confederation. At tbis dis
tance from Ottawa, the premier's
naval progratn dues not appeal to
one as tbe p<lc oi a .tati-sti an
wbose vision is capable of piercing
the future. Il is rather suggestive
of a man wbo has set himself a task,
and who takes the shortest and
easiest way out of the dilemma. A
cash contribution would he perfectly
proper if an emir^ency existed.
But if the emergency does not exist, Canada can belter show her
loyalty lo lhe empire hy providing
for own naval defence. ThiB would
lake the burden of maintenance off
the shoulders of the people of the
mother country, while it would at
the same time augment England's
sea power. It is argued that
dreadnoughts cannot be built in
Canada at present. True. But a
start must be made sometimes. We
might as well nuke that start now
as ten yeara hence. A few years
ago the United States did not have
sufficient ship building equipment
to build a first-class oruiser. It would
be better to appropriate $100,00o,-
000 for government idiip building
yards antl the nucleus of a Canadian
navy than to make a few "emergency" contributions; and Great
Britain's Rea power aspirations
would not suffer by the former
course. There is another phase to
the question. Canada is enjoying
unexampled prosperity at present,
and a cash contribution of thirty-
five million dollars to the imperial
navy would probably not be missed,
but if these contributions are to be
kept up for arilitliefiiiite number of
years, they are bound to drain the
country of the money that should
circulate in commercial channels,
and financial panics would lie the
natural result. If a Canadian navy
is tiuilt, the money will go to Canadian work me and Canadian indlis
tries, and it will find ils way back
to the channels of Hade and commerce. Let us work for a Canadian
navy. We take it for granted that
an "emergency" does not exist.
Every newspaper and every public man appear to take a fiendish delight to take a ling theBe days at the
apparently vanquished Turk. This
paper has never been noted for kicking a man when he is dowu. Even
tbe Turk may have qualities that
would make a christian a better
christian if we possessed them. The

who knows bim intimately, is not

enemies. With his empire appu.-

■Sultan Mebmed V, who will likely
go into history as the lust Turkish
monarch to reign in Europe. Probably no more kindly monarch exists
anywhere in Europe, none who

and less of himself. The sultan is re
numbered by those wbo have mt

he favors all, from the higlust to
tlie lowest. He has a nu-Unetitily,

shrink from no sullen commands,
as did those who attended his pre
decessor. The sultan rises soon
after dawn, and when his attendants bring him his habitual cup'
of delicious Arabian mocha, he
smiles to them and whispers, "Allah
be pjaised for his gifts." His beating is at all times affable. There is
something of the nature of Oriental
fatalistic kismet in his smile, since
it seems to betray a profound acqui
escence in the divine course of
things. Perhaps today, in the most
serious of all crises which have ever
come upon the Ottoman empire, he
smiles, and smil ng murmurs, "Allah's will be done."
People who court fulsome flattery,

With the possibility of an appeal to
the people to decide upon a matter of
such epochal importance to the nation
in itsolf and as a part of the empire,
it is ominously significant that Mr.
Borden shojld have neglected to provide for ilia constitutional redistribution The reason is not hard to see.
The geniral result of the last election
was naturally pleasing to-liim. If for
any cause he is obliged to appeal to
the people he wishes to meet as few
constituencies and groups as possible
Meanwhile he is apparently ready to
sacrifice the people to serve his own
(arty ends. —Victoria Times.
A circular on forest reserves appears in this issue It is possible that
the st ible is being locked after the
horse is stolen. Is ii the object to
preserve the timber for speculators, or
for the people? Along Slocan lake
the land and timber is held by speculators, who do nothing to develop the
district. They hold the land with the
object of "skinning" some old country
or eastern sucker out of ten to twenty
times its value. There are million
of acres of timber and agricultural
lands in the province held for speculative purposes. These lands should
be taxed to the limit, or the act
tunended so that the burden of taxation should be taken off the improved
land and placed upon those held for
speculative purposes. Take the townsite
of New Denver: The business man is
taxed from J10 to $20; the lot along
side pays less than a dollar, yet he
can not buy the unimproved lot for
ten times its assessed value. The
taxes are nothing, and the business
man is annually adding to the value
of the unimproved lot. Six business
men in New Denver pay ten times
their just proportion of the local
school rates, and only one of them receives direct benefits from the schools
It is the same with agricultural lands.
The settler pays the taxes and the
speculator reaps the benefit in increased values of his holdings.—New
Denver Record.

Newspaper Law
1. A postmaster is required to give
notice by letter (returning the paper
does not answer the law) when a subscriber does not take his paper out of
the postolliee, and state the reason for
its not being taken. Any neglect to
do so makes the postmaster responsible to the publisher for payments.
2. If any person orders his paper
discontinued he must pay all arrearages, or the publishers may continue
to Mend it until payments are mnde,
and collect the whole amount whether
the paper is taken from the otlice or
not. There can be no legal discontinuance until payment is made.
3. Any person who takes a paper
out of the postoffice, whether directed
to his name or not, or whether he has
subscribed or not, is responsible for
the pay.
4. If a subscriber orders his paper
stopped and the publisher continues to I
send it, the subscriber is bound to t
pay for it if he takes it out of the!
post office. This proceeds upon the
ground that a man must pay for what
he uses.
5. The courts have decided that refusing to take newspapers or periodicals from the post office or removing,
leaving them uncalled for, is prima
facie evidence of intentional fraud.

Quaint Old Wedding Idea*
Superstition never clustered round
any episode o! lite moro than lhat of
thc wedding-day, especially in olden
times. .,   a ,*
Then It was customary for the bride
to present her future husband with a
bunch o£ rosemary, tied up with ribbons, on his flrst appearance on the
wedding morning. Tills was supposed to secure his love and loyalty,
and to make her happy tor ever.
In Yorkshire the old superstition
still abounds that nothing more unlucky could happen than for a newly-
made bride to leave the church by n
different door from that by which she
entered. ,, ,
Another quaint custom, for which
there Is no known oiigln, is tliat practised in come of tho midland end
Northern counties. This Is to ring
a merry peal of the church bells at the
flrst rending of the banns of an Intending matrimonial couple. It is called
the spur peal, which lu eld Anglo-
Saxon means simply "ask."
Of course, lt la well known that it

Industrial Bureau's Big Display of In-

Attracts Thousands
Community advertising has been
adopted so generally throughout We
Canada, that tlio subject is ono of
general importance, and methods successfully can-led to completion are of
absorbing interest to many Western
No other city on the American Continent iias a liner or better equipped
permaneat exposition, featuring industries and the Natural Resources of
the country, than has tho city o! Winnipeg. This big permanent and free
exposition, conducted under the auspices of the Winnipeg Industrial Bureau, was started last Spring anil during tto past six months, Commissioner Chas. F. Roland estimates, has
been visited by 700,000 people. In
addition to the lifty-four exhibitors of
local industries, there are now 24 districts of tlie West, which have (secured
space aad are advertising their communities in this exposition. The
places represented at the present time
In this handsomo and conspicuous edifice on Main Street, are:—Brandon,

and Manitoba Provincial Governments
and tlte Canadian Pacific and the Canadian Northern railways.
With this splendid representation of
farm, forest and mine of the Canadian
We.it, arranged in attractive form ta
easily accessible and central position
in the metropolis of tho prairies, its
value as a factor ln tho settlement ot
the country cannot well be over estimated, and so popular has the Exposition become as an adjunct to local methods of publicity, that the Industrial Bureau aro now completing
extensive additions to tho floor opu.ee.
This will accommodate a number of
exhibits of "Made in Winnipeg" goods
and will provide another opportunity
for a limited number of ambitious
communities to securo space.

To Cure for the Growiag Family
and Her Household Cares
When thero ls a growing family to,
care tor and tho mother falls 111, lt
Is a serious matter. Many mothers
who are on the go from morning to
night whoso work apparently, ls never
done, heroically try to dlBguise their
sufferings, and keep an appearance of
cheerfulness beforo thdr family. Only
themselves know how tliey are distressed by headaches and backaches,
dragging down pains and nervous
weakness; h iw their nlglttB are often
sleepless, and they arise to a new
day's work tired, depressed and unre-
freshed. Such mothers should know
that theso sufferings are usually due
to a lack ot good nourishing blood,
They should know that tho thing
abovo all others they need to give
them new health and strength ls rich,
red blood, aud that among all medicines there ls none can equal Dr.
Williams' Pink Pills for their blood-
making, health restoring qualities.
Every suffering woman, overy woman
with a homo and family to care tor
she uld give these pills a fair trial, for
they will keop her ln health and
strength, snd make her work easy.
Here is strong proof thnt these Pills
do what l's claimed for them. Mrs.
Henry Thomas, Dryden, Ont., says:
"When my second child was born I
was so weak and run down that I
could scarcely walk across the room.
My baby was small and weak also,
and cried aud worried night and day
until I discovered tliat tho child was
starving, as my nurse had turned almost to water. My hushnnd got me
a supply ot Dr. Wlllianm' Pink Pills,
and I began taking them. The first
beneficial effects wero noticed In tbat
my child began to thrive, as my nurse
began to Improve, and baby slept better and naturally. It was uot long
until I began to feel tho improvement
myself, anl I daily gained new
strength, and baby was growing very
rosy and fat. I continued using the
Pills while I * was nursing him and
found myself with all the vigor of
good health, and able to easily do my
housework, which had been so great
a drag on me before. I am now
never without Dr. Williams' Pink Pills
ln tho house, and take an occasional
dose when I feel tired. I can strongly recommend these Pills to all nursing women, especially It weak or run

The Rex Vaudeville company
paid its initial visit to the Grand
Forks opera house on Monday
evening. The audidence was not
as large as it should have heen, undoubtedly owing to the fact that a
number of companies of mediocre
merit have lately visited the eity.
The Rex company, however, gave
an exceptionally enjoyable entertainment. The company jb composed of a number of artists who
bave already made their reputation
in the old country. Harry Lancaster, the head-liner, scored a success
with his Scotch singing and comedy.
Miss Edith Wilnia, who possesses a
heautiful contralto voice of great
range and dramatic power, received
several encores. Dave Caston, a
typical London comedian, made the
hit of the evening. He amused his
audience intensely with eccentrio
comedy work and scarecrow dancing, and was repeatedly encored.
The Hall sisters, a duo of great
ability, pleased the audience with
their Scotch singing and dancing,
Miss Marion Yale, soprano, and
Harry C. Willis, an Australian ventriloquist and comedian, were nlso
much applauded. The closing item
