The trawl consists of a huge bag-like net with a wide mouth held open by two iron shod iioors, or otter boards as they are called. To these otter boards are shackled the ateol wire towing warps -one to each board-and the warps, lead In over the stern of the steam trawler to iron cranes or gallows placed by the rail of the ship, one for-wkrd and ono aft.- If the gear is being towed on the port, or .left-hand-side, ot tho ship, the inner warp wUl load to the after gallows, while the .otitor warp loads to tho forward, gallows. Through Iran blocks oil each' gal; lows, the Wire warps run through fair leads or pulley whoola to tUo big trawl which located on the main-deck and 3u3t forward of tho deck-house. When the bag has been towed tor an hour or'so, tho captain gives the order to haul tbo gear. Th'e ship la stopped and niakoB a sheer to port and; tho; trawl winch begins -Winding the wat-ps around tho drum.

Cheap Fi'sh For Prairies Careful investigation by the Food. Contrbllor'a Fish Committeo elicited the fact that sea'fish at ton cents per pound would be readily purchased in Western centres. To bring fish to consumers at that price meant using a , st/Jam trawler to catch thijm and a r�-I duction In transportation rates. The -1 Marine and Fisheries , Department , agreed to hear two-thirds .of the trans-; portation charges on Pacific sea fish, ' xcept .halibut, aalmon and sablefish, i and the.

However, it is.^ not always fine weather and the fish are not always caught in quantity, and the average catch will be.around 250,000 lbs! per month, which- amount should be readily absorbed in the West. While trawling is only carried .,on out of Prii^co Rupert at ^present, it is expected, that 'Vancouver fishiiig companies will also,,,fit;.put fpr flat-fish. It the Western consumers-follow-the food contso'ller's request for "a pound of fish per >veek for everybody,'' it will' require .several trawlers to fiU,. the demand. The food cqntroller has done hlB part. It is'up to tho citizens ,of .'the prairie provinces to do theirs and by rising the fish provided for them at reasonable prices, release more* beef and pork for the soldlera and allies overseas. �''' HIGH COST OF RETAIL DELIVERY The delivery system ot a grocer in Bloomtleld, Ind., was recently investigate and disclosed a typical caae of inexcusable wasto.
