KELOWNA BRITISH COLUMBIA, THURSDAY, JANUARY 3, 1918.-4 PAGES  $1.50 Per Annum  1 <  I  1  Big Increase in British  Columbia Fruit Crop  Okanagan   Produced Greater  Part of Record Output  The value of British Columbia's  fruit crop* for the vear 1917, according to the provincial department of agriculture, exceeds thoae  of last year by 18 per cent. Unofficial estimates, have placed the  value of the Okanagan valley fruit  output at three million dollars.  This ii the largest fruit-producing  district in the .province. A total  of 2500 cars of fruit went out of  the Okanagan this year in addition  to a large quantity of vegetables.  Of the fruit shipments 2025 cars  were applea and the balance peaches, apricots, cherries, plums,  prunes and small fruits.  Despite the British embargo  which was at first believed to spell  ruin for the fruit-growing industry, the general outlook is far more  hopeful than for some time past.  The bulk of the B.C. crop was'  sold to the prairie provinces, while  overseas exports included about  75 cars of apples, fifty cars going  to Australia and New Zealand and  a few to South Africa.  The Vancouver market this year  took a much larger share than  usual of fruit from B.C. orchards,  the B.C. apples shipped to Vancouver during 1917 greatly exceeding the apple imports from  the United States, a complete reversal of the conditions existing a  few years ago. Keremeos, one of  the nearest of the interior fruit  districts, shipped approximately  48 cars of fruit to Vancouver, including 40 cars of apples (estimated'on a basis of 700 boxes to  the car), six cars of peaches and  two of plums.  Australian Soldier Vote  Against Conscription  A Melbourne despatch giving  the latest figures on the recent conscription referendum in Australia  shows that 889,000 votes were cast  for tlie proposal and 1,072,000 a-  gainst it. The soldiers' vote instead of reducing the majority opposed to the measure as had been  expected, greatly increased it, the  proportion of soldiers voting a-  gainst conscription being much  greater than amongst the civilian  population. The soldiers' vote  showed 23,000 for and 32.000  against.  Mrt. Morrison, snr., Mrs. D. D.  Campbell, Mrs. Alec Morrison and  Mr, C. H. Morrison left this morning on a visit to the coast.  Mrs. Frank Hill was a passenger  this morning for Calgarv, where  she will visit friends.  Mr. Leo* Newby left this morning for Sceptre, Sask.  Mr. A. O. Brunette returned today to Sceptre, Sask., after a short  visit to his home here.  A dance has been arranged ih  connection with the Prisoners of  War Fund, for Ftiday, Januaty 11.  Mr. Radford left this week for  Golden, where he will take charge  of the " Golden Star."  The police made a raid last  night upon the house of Hop  Chang a chinaman who lives on  Eli Avenne. A number of Chinamen were caught in the act of  gambling and were arrested. Hop  Chang was bailed out for $50 and  the other six men $10 each. None  of the men appeared to answer  to the charge so the bail was forfeited amounting to $110.  BIRTHS  FLEMING���On Saturday, Decern  ber 22nd, to the wife of J. Fleming, a daughter.  SOAMES���On Saturday, December 22nd, to the wife of S  Soames, of Ellis Street, a son.  NASH-On Saturday, December  29th, to Mr. ant) Mm. Nash, a  Want Compulsory  Rationing  The national convention of the  British Labor Party and war emergency workers adopted resolutions  Saturday protesting against ''the  sufferings now being unnecessarily  inflicted upon the mass of urban  consumers by the prolonged delay  of the government in organizing  an equitable system of distribution  of the supplies of food," and demanding equal sharing among all  families, without distinction as to  wealth or class, with compulsory  rationing.  Will Give Serious Reply  to Peace Proposals  The Manchester Guardian says it  is the intention of the British gov-,  ernment, when the Austro-German  terms of peace are presented offici-  cially to return a serious and reasoned reply.  Premier Lloyd George has arranged to visit France, according to  the newspaper, to confer with Premier Clemenceau on this subject.  The Austro-German peace terms  referred to are those presented by  the representatives of the Central  Powers at the negotiations with the  Russians at Brest-Litovik. These  negotiations were interrupted for  ten days to give the Entente Allies  opportunity to state whether they  would join in them. The principal  point in the Austro-German outline of peace terms was the acceptance of the Russian formula ol no  annexation of indemnities.  Stefansson is Safe  Viihjalmur Stefansson, the Canadian explorer, and hia party have  arrived safely at Fort Yukon, Alaska, from the far north. Thia means  that the explorer, about whose  safety there has been considerable  doubt for several months past, is  coming back to civilization after  his long sojourn in the Arctic  regions. Stefansson has been in  the north since the summer of  ,1913.  The following articles have been  sent to headquarters during the  past month: 36 suits pyjamas, 24  shirts, 24 ties, 33 suits of vermin  proof underwear, 31 hot water  bags,'96 pairs of sox, I scarf, pair  bed- socks. 25 pprsonal property  bags, pair mitts, 12 handkerchiefs.  During the month the Mission  sent in: 12 suits pyjamas, 20 hot  water bags, pair bed socks.  Benvoulin sent in: 18 suits  vermin proof underwear, 26 pairs  pairs socks, 12 cheesecloth handkerchiefs.  The following contributions are'  gratefully acknowledged: Mes-  dames C. Wilson, E.

The Russo-German peace negotiations which were to have been  resumed on Monday after a postponement to give the Germans  time to formulate their reply to the  Russian terms, were again delayed  for one -day, an Exchange Telegraph despatch from Petrograd  reports. The despatch also says  the Germans have aaked for a  further postponement until January 24th.  Distressing Accident  at Christmas Party  Kelowna Lady Badly Burned  When Dress Catches Fire  Miss Russell, of the Joyce Hostel, was the victim Monday afternoon of a distressing accident  as a result ofwhich she is now  an in - patient of the Kelowna  hoapital suffering from severe  burns about the arms and face.  She was engaged in preparation  for a Christmas party and had  dressed in a fancy costume largely  made up of cotton wool. She was  trying one of the indoor fireworks  known ss "sparklets" when the  cotton wool on her dress ignited,  and in a few moments her head  and shoulders were enveloped in  flames. Miss Babcock, who was  in the house at/the time managed  to extinguish the burning dress by  throwing water over it, but not before very serious injury had been  done. The doctor was summoned  and pn his arrival the injured lady  was removed to the hospital. Reports to-day. state that she is progressing favorably, but that she is  very badly burned. Some fear is  entertained that her eyesight may  be affected.  Mr. J. W. Jones, M.L.A., left  last week-end on a visit to the  prairie.  Mr. Chas. H. Morrison and family have been visiting for the past  few days in town. Mr. Morrison,  who comes from Saskatchewan,  where he ia in business as a druggist, is the younger member of the  Morrison family. The presence  here, also, of Mr. and Mrs. Alec  Morrison and family who came  from Gull Lake, Sask., gave the  opportunity for an interesting family re-union at New Yeara.  December Precipitation  Creates New Record  The heavy falls of snow during  the past few weeks has caused many  people to declare it was the heaviest  they had ever seen in the district.  Not many however are really  aware that the precipitation during  December did create a decided  record for the district.  During the month the snowfall  reached a total of 34.12 inches.  As ten inches of snow equals one  inch of rain the actual precipitation from snow is thus 3.41. Adding to this rainfall amounting to  1.02 gives the precipitation for the  month was 4.43. Thus in one  month moisture fell equal to half  the total precipitation of 1916,  which was an unusually dry year.  The annual average precipitation  for this district is 11 inches.  For the past fourteen years,  according to official records, the  rainfall has only once exceeded  three inches in any one month and  that was in July, 1903, when 3.48  inches fell, and only three times  has it exceeded 2.50 inches, viz.,  in November 1906, 2.64 inches,  September, 1915, 2.52 inches, and  May, 1915, 2.53 inches.  The heavy precipitation this  year is looked upon as extremely  favorable to good crops next year.  Not only will the water systems be  well filled for irrigation needs, but  the land will be greatly benefitted  especially as the open fall enabled  farmers to plow up such a large  acreage. I  Another notable weather happening and one which is probably a  record was the fact that the temperature went below zero in December. This was on the night of the  23rd, when 4 degrees below was  touched. Two davs before ploughing was in progress, and immediately after the weather moderated  and a thaw set in. This present  ���Spell of mild warm weather too is  something unusual for old residents  have noticed that a cold spell invariably strikes us in the opening  days of the new year.  Night Schools Promote Efficiency  Mr. John Kyle, organizer of the  technical education in the Province  haa forwarded the following article  bearing upon the subject of night  schools, which are now being arranged in Kelowna.  The Rotarian motto " He profits  most who serves best," which has  been brought into prominence lately, is simply another statement of  the truism that success comes with  efficiency, and it seems more than  ever necessary at the present time  to keep this motto clearly in view.  The duty of every man and woman  today is undoubtedly to take steps  to became skillful and proficient at  the tasks in whjch they find themselves engaged.  In order that such a determination mav materialize the Board of  School Trustees are considering  the question of opening night  schools. They must rely upon the  cooperation of all parents, employers of labour, and young men and  women to assist in making such a  scheme a success, as the future of  the nation rests not only on increased production but on improved  production.  The war fund of the American  nation stands at present at something like $7,000,000,000 and the  bill to be paid for obtaining the  loan of this immense amount of  monev is estimated at one and a  half million dollars a day. The  method adopted bv this far-seeing  nation for repaying their war loan  is by incurring a further expenditure in order to increase the productive capacity of the wage-earners, For this special purpose the  Smith-Hughes Bill has been passed  into law, and gradually increasing  sums will be paid from the National Treasury to the various States in  support of technical education.  These amounts will range from $1 ,-  700,000 in the present year to the  sum of $7,200,000 in the year 1925-  26.  The American nation recognize  the principal that specialized foims  of vocational education should be  provided for children over four  teen years of age who desire or  need such training. The fact is  also recognized that the state  should have the responsibility for  the training and educational welfare of all children until thev become at least sixteen years of age ;  and the state is prepared to pay  for the work. The citizen, the teacher, the manufacturer and the worker seem to be entering into the  spirit of this progressive movement  and seem determined to equip  themselves for service and consequently for profit.  The only democratic Canadian  movement in a similar direction is  seen in the organizing of night  schools, and if the rising generation  of our country is to be enabled to  compete with our frienda across  the line every endeavor must be  made to create a desire for efficiency by providing such means of  training at public expense.  It is told on good authority that  on a certain day at the opening of  the war, in one of the large factories in Germany a bell rang and all  the machinery stopped. Every man  gathered up hia tools, his ji;;s end  blue prints, walked up to the storekeeper and handed them in. A  certain percentage of tha men went  to the paymaster, drew their pay,  and went away to the army. The  others went to a different store  room, received new drawings, new  jigs, and new material, went back  to their machines and in two hours  from the time the machinery had  stopped the factory was running  again at- full speed���turning out  munitions.  At the close of the war it is altogether probable that the German  government will have its plans just  as well prepared for competition  in commerce snd industry and, figuratively speaking, within two hours  after the war machinery stops the  industrial machinery will start  again.  Efficiency is the order of the day;  he profits most who serves best.  " A man's heart must be in his  skill and a man's soul in his craftsmanship."  Ice Storms and Floods  in Frazer Valley  For the second lime within a  few weeks the Frazer Valley has  been visited by devastating storms,  and reports from the district convey information of enormous damage. The electric light, telephone  and power companies were the  chief sufferers from wrecked pole  lines, though farmers and fruitgrowers have lost heavily. In addition to the wreckage caused by  the ice storm, much property has  been destroyed by subsequent  floods.  Chilliwack was especially badly  hit, and the city and district looked  almost as if it had been visited by  an earthquake. Orchard treea  were stripped of all their branches  by the weight of ice, and the streets  weie littered with tangled wire and  fallen poles. For several days al)  trains both ways were held up, and  the breakdown of telephone and  telegraphic communication made  conditions still worse.  Want to Import Chinese  Increase Authorized in  Railway Rates  The Dominion Railway Board  has authorized an increase of 15  per cent, in freight and passenger  rates. The increase, which does  not apply to British Columbia, will  mean approximately $25,000,000  additional revenue to the three  great Canadian roads. The concession has been granted in consequence of the greatly increased  operating costs,  Bye-Elections Jan. 24  Following a short session of the  provincial executive Monday the  official announcement is made by  the government that the by-elections in the provincial ridings of  Alberni, Newcastle,Vancouver and  Similkameen, will be held Thursday, January 24, 1918, while the  latest date for nominations is set  for January 17th.  An investigation is being conducted under the direction of the  Food Controller into the poultry  situation. A study is being made  of such questions as the coat of  producing eggs and poultry and  of the cost of feeding.  Some 6,000,000 feet monthly of  B.C. spruce will be needed for aircraft construction.  Rossland Knights of Pythias  has invested $5,000 in war loans  to date.  The eighth annual convention  of the B.C. Federation of Labor  will convene in Vancouver on  Monday, January, 28th.  Another earthquake at Guatemala City Saturday virtually destroyed the city. A report aa>s  everything is in ruins and that 125,  000 people were in the streets.  American naval vessels have been  ordered to render assistance.  Eleven Austro-German airplanes  have been brought down by the  British and Italian fotces in a big  aerial battle, which developed when  the Teutons made an unsuccessful  attempt to bombard Treviao, 18  miles north of Venice^  The first candidate to enter the  lists for the forthcoming provincial  by-elections is Mrs. Ralph Smith,  widow of the late miniater of finance, who will run as an Independent.  An order-in-council passed December 24 provides for the payment  of a reward of $10 to any member  of the forces who arrests and delivers into military custody, a man  who is absent without leave from  the military forces of Canada  through failure to comply with the  Military Service Act. The order-  in-council also provides for the  payment of expenses incurred in  affecting the arrest and while the  deserter is in civil custody. '  Pressure is Being Brought te  Bear on Government  The importation of indentured  Chinese labor to supply the anticipated serious shortage not only in  this district but also in many parts  of Canada, has now become the  subject of wide-spread agitation.  Locally the bringing in of this kind  of help is regarded as absolutely  necessary if the present output of  fruit and produce is to be maintained. Resolutions have already  gone in from the farmers' organization, and the Board of Trade and  Farmers' Institute are both taking  the matter up.  It is understood that during re-'  cent months considerable pressure has been brought to bear  on the Dominion government to  allow the importation of Chinese  labor both for industrial and farm  work on similar terms to those on  which the thousands of Chinamen  are being shipped through Canada  to France for work behind the  lines. Proposals have been submitted for the cultivation of large  areaa of Western land provided a  supply of oriental labor was made  available. These proposals have'  not however, received the favourable consideration of the government.  A report from Vancouver that  the head tax is to be raised on 30  thousand Chinese coming into  British Columbia is given official  denial at Ottawa. No such action  has been taken by the government  or discussed by the cabinet up to  the present time, it is asserted.  Rutland News  ilreaeetT*  The annual Christmas entertainment of the Methodist Sunday-  school was held last Friday night.  The programme consisted of recitations by the junior members and  a lantern exhibition by Rev. D.  Braden assisted by Rev. Griffiths.  Santa Gaus failed to keep his ap"  pointment but the superintendent,  Mr. Everett Fleming, distributed  nuts, candy and, oranges to the  scholars.  The Rutland Women'ajnstitute  will hold their annual meeting in  the school on Thursday, January  10th, at 3 p.m. AH members should  attend this meeting as the election  of officers for 1918 will be held.  The mild weather has spoiled  the skating, much to the regret of  the young people here.  'The Girls'Enterprise Club met  at Mrs. Longstaffe'�� on Wednesday.  The British troops in Palestine  have repulsed a Turkish attack  north and north-west of Jerusalem  and made an advance of about 2J  miles on a front of nine miles  along the Turkish right flank, says  an official communication.

The Strange Career of  Likolai Lenine  If you haven't been in prison or  exiled you can't be a political  leader in Russia. Birds of freedom  there are all jailbirds. Most of the  members of the latest radical cabinet have done their bit in Siberia  Some of them escaped compulsory  service in the mines by coming to  America. As ragged men who  dreamed of the day when poverty  injustice and ignorance would flee  before the advent of equal opportunity for well being, they cut  little figure here. Back in Russia  they are heroes.  Under the tyranny of the Czar the more  educated a man was the more radical he  became. Such is the case of Likolai Lenine, who has set himself up as leader of  the Bolsheviki and premier of the Russian  cabinet. Like most other revolutionaries  he has had to use an alias. Hia real name  it Vladimir llyitch Unlyanoff, and he comes  from a noble family. He is about 50 years  old, ten yeart older than his lieutenant,  Leon Trotsky.  At the period when the aont of the nobility were becoming impregnated with  hatred of the autocracy, his elder brother  was shot for complicity in a plot to kill  Czar Alexander II shortly before the successful assassination of 1683. This deed,  Kerensky has said, impressed him mightily  as a boy, and-there are those who say that  this Russian stateman's heart it with Lenine, however afar his better judgment may  lead him. Thit may be taken to explain  the mild attitude of the deposed premier  towards the Bolsheviki.  In the early '90's Lenine became a leader of the radical Social Democrats, who  insist on a literal application of the international program of Karl Marx, as against  the more nationalistic view which payt  greater attention to the ptasants and their  immediate need*. One of his books, "The  Development of Capitalism in Russia,'  considered a valuable contribution to economic literature. His articles on agrarian  and scientific problems are considered  authoritetive.  The new radical premier waa elected to  the second Duma after the revolution of  1905, but wat compelled to go into exile,  a thing he often had done before, when  the reaction triumphed. At the beginning  of the war he was in Austrian Poland and  was interned as an enemy alien. After a  short time he was allowed to go to Zimmer-  wald, in Switzerland, where a colony of  Russian revolutionists already wat established.  After the revolution the Russian provisional government entered negotiations  with Germany by which the Russian revolutionists in Switzerland were allowed  to return through Germany in exchange  for the reserve of German civilians in Russia. Lenine headed the party, and bis  social program which he hat been advocating ever since wat drawn up as he passed through Germany in a closed train.  With Trotsky he began to preach immediately peace and general confiscation  of the land. To their school of thought the  outcome of the war it not important and  what Russia needs most is peace, that its  people may enjoy tbe fruits of Socialism.  They want the land to belong to the men  who plow it and the factories to belong to  the men who work in them. Lenine is  one of Russia's greatest orators, and with  his demand for the end of wars has built  up a great following both among the ignorant peasants nd the scholarly men of the  world, among these latter Maxim Gorky.  The sky it the limit in the game of Leon  Trotsky, Russia's new foreign minister!  When the Czar was deposed Trotsky was  living in a tenement in New York City. He  was penniless, and leaders of Radicalism  on the cast tide contributed furniture for  hit use.

PARADES ��� The combined  troop will parade at the clnbroom  at 7.15 p.m. and 2.15 p.m. on  Tuesday the 8th and Saturday the  12th of January next, respectively.  There will be a practice at baseball on Friday evening, the 7th of  January, for any scouts who care  to attend.  We hope there will be a good  turnout at all our parades during  the coming year, and it might be  well for us to remember sometimes that it must be very disappointing to the scoutmaster when  wc do not turn up at parades. We  are apt to forget what a great deal  of time our scoutmaster himself  gives tb the welfare ot the troop,  and we ought to show our appreciation by attending as regularly  as we possibly can ourselves,  The scoutmaster has received a  lelter from assistant scoutmaster  Keon, which he read to the troop  at a recent parade. Mr. Keon  asked that his best wishes should  be conveyed to the troop for a  merry Christmas and a happy and  prosperous scouting new year. He  is still in England but is counting  the days until he can come back to  Kelowna. He sent us through his  brother, scoutmaster Keon of the  10th Belfast troop, Ireland, a few  snapshots of their troop's camp  taken last year. Scoutmaster Keon  would like to link up his troop in  Belfast with our tioop here, and if  any member of our troop would  care to start a correspondence with  a scout in the Belfast troop, we  think it would be a most excellent  idea and very interesting for both.  Brilliant Violinist Conies  Here Monday  The brilliant young English violinist, Isolde Menges, who ia billed  to appear in Kelowna next Monday, is playing a series of engagements in Canada, and will tour the  States next season.  This young lady has been placed  by Professor Leopold Auer amongst the world's greatest artists. At  three and a half years of age she  gave her first recital at Brighton,  Eng��� and so much attention did  she attract at the time that it was  feared she might be brought out  as a protege, but her parents were  guided by the best expert advice,  and refused to let their daughter  come out until she was nineteen  years of age.  From the age of three, until she  made her debut, Miss Menges  practised daily from eight o'clock  in the morning until noon. The  afternoon was spent on her scholastic education which was carried  on by a visiting tutor. The evening again was spent in practise, so  that Mias Menges for sixteen years  averaged about eight hours a day  practice before she came out.  When one considers the enormous  driving power of such hard work,  added to natural genius, it is no  wonder that this'young lady should  be bracketed amongst the greatest  attists in the world.  Immediately she made her appearance in London she was engaged for all the best orchestral  concerts in the British Isles. Her  success on the continent was instantaneous and both Savonoff and  Mengelberg, the two most famous  conductors in Europe, accentuated  her success by the active interest  they took in her, which resulted in  a large number of engagements at  the very best symphony orchestral  concerts in Europe.  rulers of the world, worked on a Socialist  newspaper for $12 a week.  Articles signed by him were so radical  that frequently the editors of this Russian  daily censured or deleted them entirely.  Those,who knew him best say that Trotsky  is an honest man, though a misguided radical.  He is about 40 years old and has been  a journalist associated with the revolutionary movement for twenty yeara. Some say  he was born in Siberie, others that he came  from tbe Black Sea district, His real name  is Leber Braunstein. In the revolntion of  1905 be was president of the workmen's  council. In a Look publi lied at that time  he demanded the application of the full  Socialist program, not only in Russia, but  everywhere. The collapse of the revolt  sent him to Siberia. After several yeart  he was releaaed and, resuming his agitatat-  ion against the Czar, was forced to go  abroad.  At the beginning of the war he was in  Berlin, but his radical teachings were too  much for the Kaiser, and he was compelled to go to Switzerland. The atmosphere  there was unfriendly, and in a few weeka  he went to Paris And edited a pacifist newspaper there. When Russian troops arrived  in France, the influence of the Czar was  used to bring about his suppression. He  moved on to Spain, which also was inhospitable to his radical propoganda. One  night he was kidnapped and the next day  he awoke on a steamer bound for Havana.  Cuba was too small to contain his energies,  and he took the first ship for New York  reaching there last January.  When the revolution broke, he lost no  time in starting for Petrograd. He wat  taken off the ship at Halifax by tht British  authorities, but subsequently was released  on the protest of the Russian provisional  government, to start over again. Upon hia  arrival he joined the radical faction that  was denouncing America for its treatment  of the I. W. W. and the Allies for not mtk>  ing tn immediate peace,  Did you know that by keeping  a few pieces of the dried yellow  rind of an orange in your tea canister you can give the cheaper  grades of tea the delicious fragrance  and taste of the more expensive  grades ?  Below is some more shrapnel received from the different boy leaders at the Chatham conference,  which we mentioned in a recent  column:���  Re shorts: "If our fellows at the  front wear shorts in all the filthy  weather that they are fighting in  by day and night, surelv we can  do it for a few hours in the week."  " If the Chief at his age can wear  shorts, it is up to me to do it too."  " You know on joining what you  are in for���<you come into it with  your eyes open ; don't go and  grouse about it afterwards. That  is not keeping faith. It is up to  your honor to stick to what you  have gone in for."  Cadets: " No one who has got  scoutcraft into his bones will giye  it up to form fours."  " The scouts who leave the scouts  to join the cadets are not our good  ones. They aro our worst. But  we can least afford to lose them.  We can lend the good ones, if they  are wanted, but we want the worst  to keep - and to cure.  We ask those who are going in  for the War Service badge to see  that the Red Cross has plenty of  wood split all the time. We undertook to do this work for them.  A happy new year to you all!

For the second time this winter  an unusually deep covering of  snow has disappeared suddenly  before the warm breath of the  Chinook, and the good sleighing  and its attendant advantages have  disappeared.

Besides doing well  on an average the name of Miss  M. Clarke appears second in the  first year tor history, only being  beaten for first place by a Miss  Blaky, who appears to be little  short of a genius.

Naturally we were alarmed about the  fate of our old friend and fellow-  townsman, George, whom we  knew was taking a much-needed  rest in those parts.. Happily, our  fears were groundless for affidavits  to hand prove that George is still  passing the days in refined quiet,  rest and contentment.  Everything was in readiness immediately prior to the thaw for the  flooding of the tennis courts, on  purpose to form a skating r rink.  Nature itself, however, saved the  boys any trouble as regards the  flooding���but there was no skating.  A considerable number turned  out to the watch night service at  the Baptist church Monday night.  Miss Kelly, of Vernon, was a  visitor in town New Year's Day.  Mr. J.

A  full page advertisement in the  Saturday Evening Post sells for  $5,000. and the back cover sells  for $7,000, whilst the centre psge  in color is $ 12,000.
