Kim and A. J. McCallum.
James Rooke explained the workings of the Fruit Growers' association. One of the main objects of tne
new organization, in order to ensure
suceess, should be to keep the expenses as low as possible. The officers should secure a constitution
and bylaws, and as much other in-
Jomintion as possible, from the Kelowna union. J. D. Honsberger
thought that the money derived
from the sale of shares should be ex
pended for a plant. H. W. Collins

$40,000 forthe Well

District Superintendent Says
Work Will Be Started
at Once
J. A. McCallum returned today
from Calgary. While there he
closed a deal for thtsale of the McAdam ranch, consisting of 264
acres, to a syndicate of Calgary people. The consideration was about
While in Calgary Mr. McCallum
had several inquiries about Grand
Forks fruit lands. He is of the
opinion lhat if Grand Fork's lands
were advertised one-half as much us
some of the other sections of British
Columbia, that many more sales
could be effected, and a great influx
of new settlers to the valley would'
he tbe result. Good crops, he says,
seem assured throughout the northwest. At present that section is enjoying lots of sunshine and good
harvesting weather.
The pjoperty owners of Grand
Forks yesterday approved the agree
ment with the Canadian Pacilic and
Kettle Valley Railway companies
by a vote oft 227 to 5. This is
nearly the full votirif strength of
owners of real estate now in the city,
and tbe result of the poll leaves no
doubt as to the desires of tbe citizens on this subject.
The mayor last night telegraphed
the result of the voting to W. O.
Miller, Nelson, district superintendent of the Canadian Pacific railway. This morning he received an
answer to the message. Mr. Miller
stated tbat be felt gratified at the result of the poll, and added that
work on the roundhouse and machine shops would be started at
once. This latter statement appears to be corroborated by the fact
that a corps of surveyors arc now at
work in the West end.
The Canadian Pacific Railway
company has made an appropriation
of $180,000 for the proposed im
provements in this cily.
The principal clauses in the agree
ment ratified yestehlay are: The

Novel Method Adopted by
Carmi Man to Water
His Orchard
A. R. Brewer, president of the
American Land Development <fc
Manufacturing company, of Curlew,
Wash., was in the city on Monday.
Mr Brewer has just completed installing a 10 horsepower current
motor irrigation plant for Bev.
Fattier Ferroux, at Cnrmi, B. C.
The plant is now in su-cestui operation, and it is highly recommended
by Mr. Ferroux. The plant possesses some novel features. In the
lirst place, there is no expense for
power; and secondly, instead of run
ning the water in ditches, huge
sprinklers are used, four of them
being stifficied'to cover an acre of
ground. When the water is turned
on there is a perfect imitation of a
natural rainfall. It is claimed for
this system lhal it saves water, and
also that there is no cor ying away
of tbe soil, as is the case when irrigating by the ditch method i.s practised. The sprinklers are manufactured in California, and cost 8Ni
each laid down in this section ofthe
country. The plant at Carmi, complete with current motor, piping ami
sprinklers, cost 12800. At present it
is irrigating a ten acre orchard, but
it is claimed that the motor will supply power lor irrigating a much
larger tract of land.

Aching  Backs aad Tired Limbs
Need M Be Endured
Aching backs, tired limbs, attacks
of lalntness, headaches and Dack-
aches, need not be a part of woman's
life. There are times when her
blood needs special attention, aud
tbose times are Indicated by one or
more of the above symptoms. It ls
at Buch times that Dr. Williams' Pink
Pills are worth their weight ln gold
to women, for they actually make the
rich, red health-giving blood which
makes weak, tired, despondent women, active and strong, and feeling
equal to all their household duties.
Such a sufferer was Mra. William Sullivan, Main River, N.B., wbo says: "I
am writing to acknowledge the great
good I received through Dr. Williams'
Pink Pills. After my baby was born
last summer I was so run down that
life was really a burden. I had to
drag myself about to do my housework, and every moment was one ot
trial. If I went upstairs I would be
breathless and tired out, and my
heart would palpitate violently, and
would have a feeling as though I was
smothering. My appetite was poor,
and my baby was suffering from my
weakness. I was advised to try Dr.
Williams' Pink Pills and got six
boxes, and before they were all quite
used I was like a different woman
My appetite returned; I regained my
Btrength, and the work about the
house no longer bothered me. As
the result of my experience I would
strongly urge all weak women and
nursing mothers to use Dr. Williams
Pink Pills.
There is no woman, no matter what
her station In life, who will not enjoy
better health If she occasionally fortifies her blood through the use of Dr.
Williams' Pink Pills. The Pills are
sold by all medicine dealers or may
be had by mall at 50 cents a box or
six boxes for $2.60 from The Dr. Williams' Medicine Co., Brockville, Ont.

Bombay's Animal Hospital
In far off Bombay is probably tbe
largest and most elaborate hospital
for animals ln the world. It has
both its Inpatients and its outpatients
and it ministers to animals of all
kinds as carefully as human beings
are administered,to in the hospitals
of the West.
Over 2,000 animals are taken into
the hospital eacb year, and well on
to 1,000 are treated as outpatients.
In all there are some forty buildings,
large and small, connected with the
hospital, and the architectural structure and the appointments ot some
of them arc Indeed superior to those
of many of our regular hospitals.
This splendid hospital for animals
was touuded by a native Indian, a

Lord Haldans Dlacussea Queation In
Evidence Before Commlaslon
It is not o(ten that a government
repot* contains matter especlallly of
interest to women; but the views of
Lord Haldane on the much discussed
topic as to whether they should be
excluded from the "professions" given in cvlderce before the royal commission on the civil service will be
read with Interest by all women who
have lo depend upon themselves for
their living. Though the inquiry
wus supposed to touch.the civil service only, the war minister was very
emphatic In expressing his opinion on
lhe subject generally. He said hla
belief was lhat the exclusion of women, from a groat many professions
at the present tlmo was the result of
superstition, and very little else. He
believed there was a great many professions In which women were not
only qualified to do tho work, but
where they could be of the greatest
possible use.
There were certainly a great many
positions in the civil service which
women could All quite as well as men
and which they did not fill af the
present time-higher division posts
as well as others.
„.,Lor?.'?__,ldane wa!' questioned by
Miss Haldane as to whether he considered lhat post qualified for by a
higher education, whatever was tlie
case with regard to lower posts should
receive equal pay In tlie case of women and men. Ho replied thnl he
hud previously said that upon that,
questlon he had found it dlfllcult to
make up his mind.
It might be said that thoy must pay
a man. not what lie was worth, not
the cost of producing hint, but a living wage, because he was the breadwinner for his wife and family, and
they ought lo encourage him to have
a wife and family, In tho Interests of
tlie state, and therefore he must be
paid something extra for beiug a citizen.

\V. Blakemobe, of Victoria, who
receives many thousands of dollars
worth of phat advertising yearly
for being the official sycophant of
the provincial government, and who
mignt more properly be called the
jester i.t the court of Premier Me-
Bride, has been appointed a commission to enquire into tbe grievances that the people of this and
other districts have against the
Doukhobor society, lt is safe to say
that the job will co.t all that il is
worth, and probably a great deal
more. But why should this commission have been appointed? Laws
are enacted by the legislature lor
for all the people of tbe province,
and a constabulary is maintained to
enforce them. The the only grievance tbe people bave against the
Doukhobors is, that they violate
gome of the statute, aud the law
officers should be able to ^remedy
this error. The Blakemore commission is ihi lefore an expensive uml
impertinent imposition on the people. Tbe appointment wus proli-i
lily mude for the purpose of rewinding a zealous party worker.

who expressed grave concern print' to

the moral condition of the city, i»

himself with the state of affairs existing in the city today.
Thk Cooper bridge is one of the
pre-election pledges that hus not yet

needed to pay for special commissions

To any one who votes the Tory
ticket in this province the future is
secure, lf he makes a failure at
farming or in Business, he can join
McBride's "army." And that is the
only type of men in the "army."
The fruit market is not as good as
it was a year ago. Keen competition
in the Northwest from the eastern
provinces may have caused this
slump. With reciprocity these prov
hues could have shipped to New
York, and the British Columbia
grower would not have had the cent-
belt competitor on the prairies. In
the eastern provinces und eastern
states the price of land und labor conditions ate identical; in British Columbia the same conditions prevail us
in the state of Washington. Let the
eastern provinces compete with the
eastern states, and the western prov
iiti.es with the western states. The
man who says that reciprocity is dead
should be confined a lunatic asylum.
It can not he construed as a mark
of popularity for the city government

Liberal Stand on Naval Policy
In what is apparently an inspired
statement the Ottawa Free Pre**
say 8:
"On the authorijy and in the
words of one of its most prominent
eaders, the Free Press is able to
state that the attitude of Sir Wilfrid
Laurier and the Liberal party to the
naval question is as follows:
"We have a policy on this question. We adopted it after mature
consideration. Tbe opposition of
that day could not resist the temptation of making capital out of it,
and roused all tbe passions of Quebec and all tbe passions of Ontario
against it. These passions they can
not now reconcile. Hence tbeir call
for assistance. We will assist tbem
if they frankly adopt our policy or
have a better one to offer. But until they have shown their hand we
stand on our platform and adhere to
our policy."
Ducks, geese, snipe and grouse of
all kinds open in this district on
September 2, grouse shooting remaining open till the end of the
year, and ducks and so on until
February 28, 1913.
A close season is declared for
beaver throughout tbe province
from November 1, 1912, to November 15, 1913.
Deer may be shoot throughout
thiB district from September 2 to
December 15.
Prairie chicken may be shot in
Yale-Cariboo from September 15 to
October 15.
A close season is declared for
wapiti throughout the mainland until September 1, 1912. While-tailed
deer also enjoy a close season in the
Okanagan and Similkameen until
the same date; and moose benefit
from a close season in tbe Columbia
electoral district until September 1,
The Australian navy act is precisely the same as tbal framed tor
Canada by tbe Laurier government.
The difference is, says lhe London
Advertiser, that Australia bas a
number of ships ready tor launching while Canada has none, except
the two she bought. At d nob.ady
in Australia talks of a separatist
navy or accuses tbe Australian gov
eminent of disloyalty. Ti at peculiarly mean and mischievous sort of

Apropos of the problem of the
high cost of living and illustrating

is no wonder. One week I saw five

What She Was After
David Belatco condemns a certain
ultra-modern type of society woman
"This type, which luckily isn't
nvinerous," he says, "lives on no
toriety. To a woman of this kind a
(lawyer said one day:
" 'Yes, madam, I can get you the
divorce ytni d?Bire. For five hundred
dollars I can get you a divorce—and
get it without publicity, too.'
"She wrink el her smooth, white,
well powdered forehead in a frown;
she bit her roughed and over-red
lip in annoyance.
" 'But what would it cost,' she
asked, 'with publicity?'"

Reform In Surgery
Tliat surgeons In recent years. In
very recent years, have to some extent come to the opinion that the unfortunate person who may furnish
them opportunity for the display of
their skill in the use of saw and knife
is himself worthy of some consideration apart from the beautiful operation, is a matter of congratulation,
nol to the surgeons, but to ourselves
ot tlte laity. It has not been so
many moons ago when a surgeon
knife in hand, was ready to pounce
upon a patient keen to operate without considering whether the operation
might not be a graver source of danger than the deceased condition It
There has r,>cently developed, says
th" New York Medical Record, the
opposite tendency. This strives to
counteract Ihe unbounded enthusiasm or the technician for an Immediate surgical Interference, a tendency
to sliidy the patient as well as his
disease, lo consider tho factors of
safely present In the Individual un
d'r consideration, and In take all possible means of Increasing the chance
ot recovery from the operation Itself
ns well as from the disease.

Past and Present
Perseverance and determination are
admirable qualities provided they
are exercised tn a good cause, but
when these virtues are prostituted ta
minister to selfishness they are dangerous to the commonwealth and must
be resisted with equal perseverance
and determination.
This ls the situation In Northwest-
era Canada today. On one hand
stands a thoroughly united band of
grain dealers, and on the other hand
there are the farmers, the producers
of the country. The grain men are
using every means In their power to
exploit the farmers.
The history of the grain trade ln
the West Is one of a continual strug-.
gie by the grain producers for fair
treatment at the hands of the grain
dealers. The struggle dates back to
the early eighties when the first frosted graitt was put on the market. The
grain meu refused to buy the damaged wheat and caused much suffering all through the southern parts
of Manitoba. Not only farmers, but
merchants as well were brought to
the brink of bankruptcy. The grain
men at that time sought to reduce
the price of wheat to the lowest
level. Then the farmers met and
made arrangements to ship their own
grain to the Eastern dealers. The
C.P.R. aided them by arranging to
have the grain shipped through to
Sarnis where It was disposed of. As
a result every bushel offered was sold
at fair prices. As soon as the western grain dealers saw that the farmers had found a way to dispose of
their crop, they were quite willing to
get into the market too-
This ls a fair sample of the tactics
of "the grain men. They are determined to control the grain trade of
tlte West. Their latest scheme is
the sample market. Should they get
lhat, they will again control the sale
of wheat.
A sample market In Winnipeg is
asked for. As a Justification, the
sample market' in Minneapolis is quoted. But the conditions are not the
same In these two places. Iu the
first place, there are a great many
more railways running into Minneapolis than into Winnipeg, therefore
the work of re-shipping the cars
after the grain is sold ls
spread among more companies and
consequently the cars are'moved more
quickly. Then, owing to the big
mills located In Minneapolis, over
seventy per cent of the wheat received in that city ls milled there,
while not more than four per cent of
the wheal taken into Winnipeg Is
milled at that point, and the remainder Is shipped on.
Another claim made ln favor of a
sample market is that the farmers
will receive a better price for their
grain. Tlte plea put forth is that
a carload of grain that would just
miss grading No. 1. has under the present system to be graded No. 2,
whereas lf a sample market were In
effect, that carload ot grain would
bring one or two cents per bushel
over the price of No. 2, and hy mixing
It with a carload that was a little over
No. 3 would make two carloads ot No.
Bui experience * proves Its'fallacy.
We had grain mixing pracllBeil openly
for years, but no one except the grain
dealer gained by It. A sample
market would kill competition as the
men who operate It are the same
men who every day until recently,
named the price to be paid for wheat
al every buying point ln the Western
provinces, and by an agreement
amongst themselves would name the
price to be paid ou tlie sample market. You cannot expect lo gather
grapes from thorns or figs from thistles.
There Is at present a grain board
that meets every fall and decides on
the grades. If they do their duly
properly there ls no need whatever
for mixing, and at any rale experience
has taught tbat the farmers would
never obtain the benefit of the mixing.
Another important fact Is that the
mixing ot grain will certainly result
In lowering the standard of Western
Canadian wheat ln Great Britain, who
Is our chief buyer.
VVe notice In tlie dally papers tlte
Minister of Trade and Commerce, at
0-tlnwa. has given notice of Iha' intention of Iho government to establish sample markets before lite crop
of 1913 Is put on the markets. Tliere
Is therefore no lime to bo lost by
Western farmers and others Interested ln fair piny being given to them,
in taking steps to prevent the grain
trade being handed over to men who
have proven themselves utterly unworthy of confidence.

One of the Most Remarkable Chances
of Diet on Record
One of the most remarkable
changes ot diet on record was that of
the kea, or mountain parrot of New
Zealand. Originally a vegetarian, it
suddenly took to killing sheep and
lambs, devouring certain tit-bits to
which it had taken a liking and leaving the rest of the carcase untouched.
Owing to these ravages the flock-owners and the Government have been
waging a war pf extermination

They have taken to attacking and eating each other as well as rabbits,
which are.still very numerous ln Australia In spite of the prodigious

Princess Patricia Meets Emergency
In fair weather, on long voyages,
Princess Patricia of Connaught* is
busy on deck, painting or doing some
simple handicraft. Much of this
work finds Its way later to charity.
On a brier yachting trip she viewed
a gorgeous sunset; to let such opportunity go unimproved was out of the
question. Her color box was there,
hut brushes lind been forgotten. Not
a moment could be lost If her sketch
would be completed.
The doctor was called for and
he cun.e running. "Your brushes,
quick, please—the kind you paint peopled throats with!

the reply.
Then tell me «omelhlng about-him.

The Interest In the grand sweepstake prizes ln the several grain
classes of the International Dry-
Farmed Products Exposition, to be
held at Lethbridge, Alberta, next October, has Increased and the number
of premiums have likewise multiplied.
The Rumley tractor stands as the
premier premium offered for the best
bushel of bard wheat grown under
dry-farming conditions, or where the
annual precipitation is less than 20
inches, and where the land or any
part of the farm has not been Irrigated during the season. This premium has attracted a great deal ot
attention, and many farmers are anxious to possess lt.
While th, re Is no other prize offered ot value equal to the tractor,
still it is a noteworthy fact that three
of the other valuable prizes lire donated by the International Harvester
Co., or through Its agencies, and<
these, too, are attracting a great deal
of attention. The Oliver Chilled
Plow Works donated a $500 gang 4-

bride. After the honeymoon the happy couple settled down In his home,
and, as the surrounding country waa

was the village churchyard, and thero
the husband and wife paused before a
very elaborate tombstone, the property of the bridegroom. The bride, being a little shortsighted, asked him
to read the Inscription. In solemn
tones he read:
Sacred to the memory of Ann, beloved vlfe of John—; also Jane, beloved wife of John—; also Mary, beloved wife of John—
He stopped abruptly.
What are the words beneath? innocently asked the lady, and her horror
can be Imagined when he read:—
