below normal, rain about tbe average of tbe pain four months, located
Bimilar to tbat of tbe past five
months. Most Bevere storms during
first and last weeks; coldest near
middle of month. Most severe storms
and most severe rains during weeks
centering on October 3 and 24. No
drouth following Ootober, but precipitation will be less than usual.
Tbe payroll at the central packing
house of tbe Urand Forks Cooperative
Growers' Exchange now amounts to
about 14000 per month. At tbe
last semi-monthly payduy about
12000 was paid out to Employees.
Tbis figure will undoubtedly be increased when tbe packing of the
winter varieties commences. *
With the end of the dresent week
over fifty carloads will bave been
shipped out of the city this fall. It
is now thought this year's crop in
the valley will amount to over two
hundred carloads, or more than fifty
carloads over early estimates.
The market (or Kettle valley fruit
is rapidly widening under tbe present system of shipping in cooperation with the Okanagan United
Growers. This year, in additiod to
shipping to the prairie matket, shipments have been made to England,
New York and Minneapolis.

The late Miss Mason was a daughter oi Mr. aod Mrs. A. C. Mason,

reaching that city before a specialist
could be consulted.

Individual Permits
Need Declarations
Victoria, Sapt. 19.—Provision was
tnade today through the passing of
an order-in council for the taking of
slatutory declarations from all per-
sons securing single purchase permits for the buying of liquor at government stores. The declaration
must be made before the official
issuing the permit and the permittee
must declare his residence in British
The object of the order, said Premier Oliver, is io prevent abuse of
the act by American visitorsr-who in
the past have occasionally abused
their permit privileges by getting;
British Columbia residents to do the
buying of liquor over the amount
allowed an American by the law.

engaging suspicion of embonpoint,

exhibition" here last week on tbe
day Premier Oliver graced the proceedings with his presen ;e.
Included in ber party was Hon.
ID. Dudley Barrow, minister of agriculture.
As the little group sauntered up
the central driveway, a stout he-
whiskered man, with a heavy rolling
gait, passed.
"Tbere goes John Oliver," one of
the group remarked.
Thero was some further comment,
and the vivacious one was frankly
Suddenly she stepped to tf* side
of the minister of agriculture.
"I don't want to air my ignorance

"but, tell mc, who is John  Oliver'!"
Kettle Valley Apples Will
Be Shown in Competition With Fruit From
All Parts of the Empire
A couple of dozen boxes of choice
apples left the central packing house
yesterday destined for the Imperial
Fruit Show, which will be heid in
London, Kugland, from October 28
to November 5. The exhibit will be
made by the Okanagan United
Growers in tbe name of tbe Grand
Forks district. Tbe apples shipped
away for exibit at the show were of
an exceptionally fine quality, and
Manager Lucas feels confident that
Grand Forks will capture a big
prize at the show.
The Imperial Fruit Show will
comprise exhibits from England,
Scotland, Ireland and all tbe overseas dominions. A priza from the
show will naturally be a big advertisement for the district.
William A. McKay, an old timer
of Rock Creek, died in the Grand
Korks hospital on Monday night,
after arMllnesa of two months, from
blood poisoning. The funeral was
held at Hock Creek, were interment
was made.
The hunting season opened on
Saturday. We have not yet heard
of any deer or bear being brought
into the town.
The Bonnington Falls supply of
electrical energy will be connected
up with the city of Penticton by
December 1.

pest too much heat f.om the election.
Okanagan Crop Is
Valued at !$8,000,000
Victoria, Sept. 22.—The value of
the fruit crop in the Okanagan this
year will aggregate atjeast $8,000,-
000, according to W. H. Lyne, provincial fruit inspector, wbo has just
returned from inspecting the fruit
quarantine stations along the border.
"At every point I visited I found
heavlly-iladeu fruit trees and opti*
mistic growers," said Mr. Lyne.
"The farmer has been particularly
fortunate this, year as regards frosts
and fruit pests, aud many additional
trees have come into bearing this
Mr. Lyne added that men were
needed to harvest adples, pears,
plums and peaches, and tbat the
big ranchers in tbe Osanagan and
Creston districts w_ere working hard
to' pick the fruit before the heavy
frosts came.
"There is a tremendous amount
ofwork to he done io the fruit dis
tricts in.connection with the harvesting and marketing of the crops
and the curing for the orchards during the winter," said the   inspector.
Who Will Oppose
McKelvie in Yale?
Accoading to the Penticton Herald,
tbe chief political question usked in
Vale riding these days is, "Who
will oppose J. A. McKelvie?"
■It is said that friends of Col. Kd-
gett met bim last (Saturday night
with a reqoest that he take the
Held, but the reply that* they are
Baid to have received was to the
effect that any independent candidate.-In mM have a uampuign fund
raised iu advance in order to free
him from personal expense. Col.
Kdgett ran as the soldiej farmer
candidate against Mr. McKelvie in
the by election,
Mr. Howe,a farmer living midway
between Vernon and Kelowna, and
one of tbe big Mackintosh apple
growers of tha valley, has also been
mentioned as a farmer caubidate
It is stated tbut a deputation of
soldiers and Liberals approached
Capt. Brown of tbe soldier settlement board, Vernon, asking him to
throw his hat in the ring. Up to the
present nothiug has been heard of
any opposition possibilities in the
southern end of the riding.
The expectation ia that an opposition convention will be held in Pen»
ticton shortly for tbo whole  riding. THB   SUN,   GRAND   FORKS,   B. C.

Nature meant us to earn our bread by the
sweat of our brow, and if a nftin does that na
ture generally gets him in good physical con
dition. But if he forgets all this,  rides instead
of walking,  confines his energies to a swivel
chair, stays within the four walls of a room,
persists in the belief that he is the exception
to every other animal that nature made, she
soon begins to exact her penalties of him.  He
finds his resistive power lower.    He finds he
has more weight and less muscular strength to
carry it. He dislkes evercise, because it  tires
him, and the less he exercises the   more the
deterioration goes on. Soon every organ  par
takes of this slackness.   With his work cimes
worry and with that worry an irritable   con
dition of nerves.   Suddenly he is brought up
with a round stop and learns from his doctor
that something is wrong with him. Then begins
the pursuit of health, the vacations, which formerly were a pleasure to him, are . full of the
foreboding and wondering whether he will  be
all right in a month or six months.   And all
this can be prevent not by orgies of exercise,
n st by doing things to such an excess as to
still further load the   vitality   and   resistive
force, but by constant "small doses daily of a
moderate exercise, which takes nothing out of
a man but exhilerates him and is after nature's
OiV.i methods, which consists in gradual rather
th ta violent changes.    With the improvement
thu comas from this moderate exercise   his
will power strengthens and  his appetite be -
c s n ,s more normal, so thit he can more roadi -
ly c mtrol it ajid eat in moderation and  eujoy
th it food. And in proportion as  ha  practices
temoerance, jnst so much doe3 his mental and
norvnus tone improve. And he soon finds that
ijhere is double the enjoyment in the kind of
eating he does when vigorous and under self-
control than that which he practiced  before.
Every part helps a part, and when the circle
is a vicious tircle it leads around to greater
deterioration, and when it is a beneficial circle
it leads around to better improvement in all
respects.   The average man knows enough to
take care of inanimate machines, to see that
they have oil, to see that they are not run
badly or in an imperfect condition.   The average will see that his horse or his motor car is
properly taken care of.   He will insist that his
boys at school have proper exercise and sports.
Whon it comes to himself he feels that he can
take any liberty or lieense, forget all the dictates of health, and yet expect to go on  with
his work just the same.

The tragedy at Hull calls attention once
more to the serious practical disadvantages
that surround the use of a lighter-than-air
machine in flying. Theoretically the dirigible
airship is all right, but in actual use it has
again and again proved unstable and dangerous. The Germans expected great things from
their Zeppelins but got little good from them.
The presence of such enormons quantities of
inflammable gas jiear powerful combustion
engines is a constant peril; and even if a really
non-inflammable gas were discovered, it would
still be difficult to give so huge a hollow body
as the dirigible envelope the rigidity and sta"
bility necessary to sustain it against the force
of a high wind or the strain of sudden changes
in direction.

Tiie new capital of India is now l.ein
just south of Delhi. Although Delhi is the site
of many ancient capitals, the present city dates
from the reign of Shah Jahan, the greatest of
the Mogul emperors, and is only about as old,
therefore, as Boston.or New York. Tho new
capital city when completed will cover ap
proximately thirty-six thousand aeffis and
will house more than fifty thousand people
connected \vi_>li the imperial government. A
few years ago Austalia also undertook to ere
ato a new capital, Canberra; and the architect, who was selected through competition,
was an American, Owing to political influences, however, Melbourne still remains the
seat of government, and work on the new city
of Canberra languishes.
The Less Governments Mix in Business
the Better for the Peoples
An experience of many years has led me to
believe that governments not only accomplish
less in the long run for the trading interests of
their respective nations, and do harm by let
ting their traders rely too little on their own
energy, but that those' dangers to a govern
ment and to a ration as a whole, which seem
almost inseparable from mixing national policy
with the pecuniary interests of business affairs
or classes, are more serious than is commonly
realized, is the opinion of Viscount Bryce, according to views expressed by him in a recent
lecture in Institute of Politics.
Money, he says, can exercise much legitimate influence in democracies as elsewhere.
In some of them it can buy the press, perhaps
also a section of legislators. When the standard of public virtue is high, those who want to
get something from the government will, to
use a current expression, "try to get at the
press," while also seek ng to induce influential
constituents to put pressure on their members
and membtrs to put prjssure on ministers, the
object in view being represented as a public
inteeest, whereas, it is really the interest of a
small group. When the standard is low, the
group will approach the private secretaries of
jninisters or even a minister himself.
That wars are made by finantiers is not gen
erally true, but they have a great hand in ne
gotiations and in fixing the lines of policy, and
they sometimes turn it in directions  not fav
orable to true national interests. Governments
must, of course, consult financiers, and may
often not only profit by their advice, but make
use of them. A consortium of banks such as
has been set up for China may prevent—and
I think it does prevent—evils which would
arise if each national group intrigued for its
own interest.
There are upright men valuable to a nation
in high finance as in other' professions. You
know them in America and we know them in
England. They have their sphere of action
necessary to thc world. But wherever large
transactions involving governments arise, the
danger signal for watchfulness should be
Every government must defend the rights
of its citizens in commorcfal as well as other
matters, and secure for them a fair field in the
competition which has now become so keen.
But the general conclusion which any one who
balances thc benefits attained against the evils
engendered by the methods that have been
generally followed, is that, balancing tho loss
againss the gain, the less executive governments have to do with business and international finance the better for the peoples.
