It is generally admitted that co-
operaii'in is absolutely essential to
secure the greatest success along the
lines of economy in harvesting and
marketing. It must be admitted
that eo-operation, attempted under
unfavorable conditions, either natur-
or assumed, will not succeed. If
the natural conditions are all that
could be desired, and the business is
conducted along the lines of systematic and up to dute methods,
with capable and experienced men
at the head of the affairs —with tbe
assurance thut we hsve the right
men io the right plsce—then we
have the foundation for the establishing of a successful co operative
organization. However, something
more than natural conditions are required, as succsss depends on many
details. In tbe first place, there
must he volume of business in order
to insure economy in tbe cost of
handling, as to a grest extent tbe
cost of management is ' practically
the same whether the business be
large or small. 8mall organisations,
' us we can readily understand, are at
present, and will continue to be so
ia the future, compelled to labor
under very heavy disadvantages
aloogt tbe line of economy in the assembling of fruit, marketing and
business management.
The elimination of competition between local associations is greatly to
our advantage, and I am confident
in my own mind that sooner or later
all tbe fruit shipped from British
Columbia will be marketed through
one general selling agency. I am ulso
ol the opinion tbat to attempt to ao-
uouiplish tbis object uuder the present conditions would not be conducive to the best interests of tbe
individual grower, or to the industry. We should endeavor tn bring
abuut conditions tbat will help to
build the foundation for the general

New York Mf.n is Cleverly Deprived
of Important Legal Documents
London, England.—A wealthy American, now in London, lias been the
victim of a series of extraordinary daring-thefts, as the result of which he
has lost some very valuable documents relating to estates in Ireland.
The victim ls H. h. Brittain, of
Now York, who In addllion to being
Interested In several prominent American enterprises, Is treasurer ot the
Oranito Spring Water Company. He
Is also, actively Interested in valuable
estates near Dublin, and tbe thefts
arc In connection wi£E the latter property.
Trailed by Thieves
V.f. Brittain sailed from New York
on the Mauretunla toward the end ot
November, arriving In Fishguard on
December 2, bringing with blm a large
quantity of luggage. At Fishguard
oft leaving the boat, he discovered that
Uie identification letter* on all hla
trunks and portmanteaux had been altered, and In this way part of his luggage had been claimed. The latter
was reported to the police, and shortly after his arrival in Loudon Mr.
Brittain bad the missing trunks returned to hlnv But they bad been broken open and the contents ransacked.
At first it appeared to be an ordinary luggage theft, but when Mr. Brittain examined the contents of the
trunks he found them almost intact
They consisted of clothing wliioU had
been replaced in the trunks after an*
evidently fruitless search.
tt now became apparent that the object of the thieves were some valuable
documents relating to the estates ln
. Ireland. Litigation is pending ln this
connection, and the documents were,
■^.therefore, of great Importance, and
were now moro carefully watched than
Documents Stolen
Mr. Brittain had occasion to journey to Dublin- the other night In connection with these eBtates, and the
documents relating to them were
placed in a securely fastened portmanteau and trunk. Warned by the previous experience, Mr. Brittain personally took charge of his luggage at Eus-
ton. He bad, however, to make an
inquiry, and instead of being away a
few seconds, as he had expected, lie
was detained about fifteen minutes owing to the congestion of the holiday
When he returned to his luggage he
found that thc additional padlock and
staples by which the portmanteau had
been secured had been forced off and
the contents ransacked, while the back
nf the trunk had been ripped open.
This time the thieves had been more
successful, and the valuable documents
had vanished.
The thieves must have shadowed me
from New York, says Mr. -Brittain. It
was certainly a conspiracy to obtain
possession of the documents.

80,000 OUT OF WORK  .
Packers of Brittany    Declare   They
Are Unable to Compete With
Packers Outalde
Parle," France.—One hundred and
sixteen sardine packing establishments in Brittany definitely closed
down at the end of the year, throwing
50,000 people out of employment.
Some fifty factories ln which other
small fish are packed still remain open
in the region around Concareau and
Douarnenez, but will also be closed
down on March 1.
The closing down was decided upon
some time ago by the syndicate of
sardine packers, who declare that the
present situation Is ruinous.
The fishermen asked for an Increase
In the pi-Ice paid per 1000 for the saw
sardines. This increase the packers
were unable to grant. They say they
are completely crushed by the cost of
labor and their general expenses and
are unable to compete with the Spanish and Portuguese packers.
The French packers further declare
that Instead ot demanding higher
wages per 1000 raw sardines the fishermen should have endeavored to secure the authorization to use revolv-
ing.nets In territorial waters, and thus
increase their catch.
Of the 50,000 men, women and children who find their occupation gone
by the closing Of the packing establishments, many, lt is expected, will
have to leave their homes and seek
work elsewhere. It is feared lhat
much -distress will result from the
Finding   Queit   Vain,   They   Leave
Corpiei on Floor of Vault
and Quit
Vienna.—A telegram received from
Grosswarden (Hungary) states that
the tomb of Count Ludwlg Rhedey and
his wife has been rifled, ahd the police are unable to discover the robbers.
Count Rhedey, who died In 18,11,
was distantly connected by marriage
with the Teck family. He was buried in a handsome mausoleum In the
grounds of a park whioh now belongs
to the town, and lt waB believed locally that the count ordered an English
ducal crown of great value and family
jewels to be buried wilh him,
This probably tempted the robbers
to commit the crime. They managed
to penetrate the park, break down
the door of she mausoleum and burst
open the lids of the coffins ot tbe
count and his wife. They scattered
the remains on the floor ot the vault,
probably in disgust at finding no trace
of the riches they expected. They left
only a cigarette end.
If you eannot win a fortune
That will feather well your nest
You at least can earn a living
If you work your level best.
If you cannot make a million
.Where tbe highest stakes are played
You can knock out several dollars
Working daily at your trade.
What's the use of having money
That you never hope to spend?
It will only bring you trouble,
It Is not your truest friend.
If you settle with the grocer
And can pay the butcher's score
With a little left for pleasure.
What can any one do more?
For tbe man who has a million
Only has one pair of eyes
To behold the wondrous picture
As old earth before him lies.
He can only eat one breakfast.
Only occupy one bed,
Only wear one pair ot slippers,
Have but one hat on his head.
If you cannot own an auto
That will travel double quick,
You can stroll along the highway
Where the autumn leave are thick,
And, whatever is your station,
In whatever niche you fit.
Yon can have a lot of pleasure
If you make the best of It.

the house ot a lady ef fashion.
When the company rose from tbo
able the professor noticed, to his great
consternation, tbat be was unsteady

In bis anxiety to save appearances,

London.—According to the Dally
Mall, the work of framing the British
navy estimates for the cflmlng year ta
nearly completed; The one point remaining tor decision, namely, whether
five or six battleships shall be laid
down depends upon the Austrian nav
al programme. It the admiralty decides to wait before taking action till
the Austrian ships ars laid down, lt
may be expected to begin live battleships this year.
Tha naval programme will then, according to present information, Involve
sn expenditure of $240,000,000 and
will lnclnde live battleships, six light
armored cruisers, twenty destroyers,
a number ot submarines, and an addition to the personnel of 6,000 men,
making s totsl of 112*,B00 officers and
The battleships will be of a new
type, the largest and strongest which
science can build or money supply.
They will displace 27,000 of 28,000
tons, burn oil and fuel alone, and
steam 25.toots. Thus the'y Will be
IntfX'Hll/ir, between tho present

cruiser. They will be armed ln all
probability with eight 16 1-4 inch guns
each firing 2,200 pound shells, of If
the 16 1-4 Inch gun is not adopted thoy
will have 15 inch guns, firing shells
that weigh 1,600 pounds.

A concrete milk-house
makes milk worth more
PEOPLE are willing,to pay more
for milk that comes from a clean,
sanitary dairy. In nearly every
city such dairies charge from 50 per cent to
100 per cent more than others—and even then
they can't supply the demand for pure, high-
grade mille. You will get more value out of
your cows if you properly cool and store the
milk. Such milk is not only more wholesome
—and therefore can be sold for a better price
 it is also slower to sour than milk handled by ordinary methods.   Ask for the free book,

FRIDAY, MARCH   14,  1913
An agitation appears to have been
started for label goods. There are
many sides to this question. Undoubtedly ths labor unions have as
much right to label and advertise
tbeir product as tbe trusts have to
use their tiademarks. But at this
point their rights end. They have
no   right   to make  the-merchant ur
pretenses. Many such instances
— might possibly be .unearthed close
to home. Then there are tbe local
merchants. They are surely worthy
of some consideration. Most of them
have big stocks of unlabeled goods on
hand. After they dispose of these,
perhaps at a sacrifice, tbeir purchas
ing market will in all probability be
restricted to the dearest. And still
they will be expected to compete
with the eastern depsrttnsntal stort-8,

ficult'task to do than in   tbe   past.

label stands for fair  treatment  and

Printer's Ink for a Black Eye
James Gordon Bennett had a way
- ot appearing ln the composing and
press rooms o! the New York Herald
at the most unexpected times, and aa
his visits often resulted ln a general
shake up of the working forces ot the
paper, they were awaited with tear
and trembling by employees.
On one ot these occasions, one ot
the pressmen, an excellent workman
who had been there under the elder
Bennett, hut was sometimes guilty ol
a lapse trom sobriety, had a blacic
eye and was ln a quandary as to what
excuse he should offer lf Mr. Bennett
should comment upon lt. By a sudden inspiration, he seized an Ink roller and daubed Borne Ink on his. face,
completely covering the discoloration.
Presently Mr. Bennett came Into
the pressroom and with the foreman,
Mr. Hays, went through the room,
commenting on every detail and looking, very Bharply at every workman.
When about to leave, he suddenly
pointed to tho Inky pressman, and
said: Mr. Hays, what Is that man's
name?. The man quaked ln his shoes
until Mr. Bennett said elowly: I want
you to give lhat man three dollars a
week more wages. He is the only

riding, becoming terrified, started to
plunge through the gap between the
halves or tbe tree. At tbat moment
Ihe halves came together with a snap
like a rabbit trap, and crushed oft a
length of the horso's tall, which can

shaking, but otherwise came through
the ordeal safely.

As the colonel had given strict orders that no one was to be allowed to

There muBt be no guesswork In the
treatment of pale, anaemic girls. If
your daughter ls languid, bas a pale,

especially on going upstairs; lf she
has palpitation ot the heart, a poor appetite, or a tendency to faint, she has
anaemia—which means poverty ot
the blood. Any delay in treatment
may leave her weak and sickly for the
rest of her lite—delay may even re-
suit ln consumption, that most hope-

ls poor and watery, there Is only one
certain cure—that ls Dr. Williams*
Pink Pills, coupled with nourishing
food and gentle out-of-door exercise.

Que., is typical of the cures made by
Dr. Williams' Pink Pills. Sho rays:
"I was weak nnd all run down. My
face waa pale and covered with n!mp-
les. My lips were pale. I suffered
from pains ln all my limb., which
would at times be swollen. I waa

and "I found work about the house a
burden, as the least effort left me fatigued and breathless. I had no appetite, and notwithstanding that I was
constantly doctoring I seemed to be
growing worse all the time. One
day mother said that she thought I
ought to try Dr. Williams' Pink Pills
and I decided to do so. I soon discovered that I had found the right
medicine, and after using nine boxes
I was once more enjoying the best of

doomed to see ths msn sbe wanted
and who wanted her -wasting precious
time on tto bowling green. When 8
o'clock csme sbs went np to hsr room
sad to bed. At half past 8 Jacobus
arrived, snd In time to win the prise,
for neither of ths ottor suitors bsd
appeared. Finding that Lena bad
gone to bed, he was much disappointed
snd went a wsy, leaving word thst hs

When tto next evening cams round

was received by Frau Van Busklrk,
who told htm of tbe agreement for the

Lena. Bat Lena was so angry with
blm for keeping ber In a stats of dis-
qnletade that sbe would not bave blm.
Jacobus pleaded In vain to be forgiven for not leaving the game of bowls
wben Lena called for btm, but lt was
no use. A Dutcb girl Is slow to anger,
but wben aronsed Is not easily placated. A few years later shs married
Patrick Van Scbemmerhorn.

The Worm That Turned.
The power of discipline and precedent ln the army cannot be appreciated
by civilians. At a two company post
In tbo west some years ago a captain
of Infantry was in command, as bis
commission was of older date than
/hat of the captain of cavalry also
there. The two captains hate each
otber, but, ot course, preserved the
usual amenities In official Intercourse.
One day the senior captain ordered the
Junior to take a file of men to the forest and cnt the firewood needed for
winter. Tbls duty ordinarily would
have been given to a sergeant, but ths
Junior captain had no recourse and was
obliged to obey. Just as he got outside
tbe post tbe mall, which came only at
Intervals of a week or more, arrived,
and the cavalry captain stopped for
letters. Ono ot these brought him Ills
commission as major. He at once Issued an ordor taking command of the

Iran herself took s baud In tbs proceedings.
New Tear's dsy opened bright snd

tbe brow of Frau Van Busklrk, and
Lena gave evidence of being Interested.
Van Korttandt passed on to otber calls
and young Peter Van Corlear took bis
plsce at tbo refreshment table, Where
be snd the Isdy of tbe house were slone
together. Fran Van Bnskirk said to
Mm ln a low voice:
"Peter, If yon will go to the Onderdonks' and bring -Wlnant Vnn Zondt
here I will throw all my Influence to
yon tbst yon msy hsve our daughter
to wife."
Teter pat tbe forefinger of bis right
bsnd sgslnst bis nose to Indicate that
It was n bargain snd left tbe house.
At the time of this agreement Lena
wss receiving tbe call ot Carolas Vnn-
dergrlcft, and abe, too, made a bargain- She agreed that If he would find
Wouter Ten Eyck and keep blm away
from tbe house till set of sun sbe
would marry Carolas, provided ber
parents wonld give tneir tun sent.
Thus It fell oat that Van Busklrk by
trying to delay Us wife's favorlto for
tbelr daughter's band started a contest
between himself and bis wlfo and their
daughter, each In, behalf of tbo suitor
favored. While the father and mother
were playing, tho one to delay, tbe
other to hasten Van Zanfs coming, the
daughter was scheming to detuy Ten
Byck. Lena knew thnt so long as her
father would continue to put schnapps
before Van Zant tho young man would
yield (0 no other persuasion. If, therefore, shs could delay Ten Eyck quite
likely her own choice, Jacobus Harden-
broek, might come slong In good time
snd win ber.
Unfortunately for the success of her
plan Jacobus took lt Into bis bend to
have s game of bowls on tbe bowling
greeu. There was sn Inn directly opposite, snd lifter every game either
beer or schnapps was served, and,
though Jacobus was s temperate msn,
he was exceedingly fond of bowls, and I

Throwing up tbs sash, shs cried out to
"Jacobus, ars you not making calls
; "Yes," replied Jacobus. "I am going
to begin wben I have finished tbls
game of bowls."
. "Yon bad better harry. Oar last bottle Is on tho refreshment table, and
tbere Is no moro In tbs cellar."
"I don't care for schnapps," be replied, poising snotber ball to roll It
"I prefer bowls."
Lena abut down tbs window, much
put out with ber lover, wbom she did
not wish to tell openly of tho tripartite
agreement between herself and bsr
It wu soon after this that Peter Van
Corlear retnrned and admitted tbat

Timely Hints en Care of Baby.
Wbat mother does not long to givs
her bsby sll the advantages possible

are msny, having had no special training for motherhood, who neglect methods best sdspted for a child's wutfsie.
Tske tbe question of pure air for
babies. Many a mother thoughtlessly
allows her baby to stay ln a heated
room ln which tbere aro soveral occupants. With so many people breathing this samo atmosphere lt soon has
Its oxygen exhausted, and it is not an
uncommon thing to see tbo baby yawn
and become fretful. Those who understand this cause either immediately change the air ln the same room
or take tho little one Into another room
that has been specially aired, that to
may regain his composure. For this
same reason lt ls Imperative for grownups to avoid keeping tbe baby ln rooms
wbere household duties are being performed, as tbe odors from cooking, the
dust from sweeping and tbe steam
from washing all rob the air of the
freshness so beneficial. to tbe health
of an Infant. Busy mothers especially
should see the advantage of training
a baby to stffy in one place, and that
place should be made clean and well
ventilated. Frequent trips to tbls

tbe most singular use may be seen ln
some of tho great watch factories.

times In tbe history of watchmaking lt
bas been tbe custom of watchmakers
to reduce fresb bread to tbe form ot
dough by steaming and kneading.
Tbey use tbls dough for removing oil
and chips thnt naturally adhsro in tbe
course of manufacture to pieces as
small as tbo parts of s watch. The
oil Is absorbed by the dough and the
chips stick to It, and there Is no otber

Is well for mothers to remember that
many of the diseases of Infant life are
directly attributable to overheated and
vitiated sir, so that riding In electric

Is done with attendant risks.
