WHY Because we have made good Cigars for orer half a Century. MONTREAL. is no part of Canada I where apple production IB more successfully carried on than in the Annapolis Valley of Nova Sco- tia. The principal reason lor this, from the fact that soil and climatic conditions are favourable, iifl that practically all of the large commercial orchards are situated 'in a continuous and closely con- nected chain. 'The VsSlSj" ,fe ap- proximately 80 miles in length, -with an average width of 9 miles. There are about 40 shipping stations in that area, all being on the main line ief the Dominion Atlantic Hallway its tennlnns at Halitai. Cun- the facilities for shipping bnd for export are perfect, There Is one other reason for itte success with which fruit grow- ling Is carried on in Nova Scotia, and that is the systematic manner to.which the fruit is marketed. Over ot the entire apple crop is Backed and marketed cooperative- ly. Each particular section of tha iAnnapoiis Valley has its own co- joperative association, and all these nibsldiary companies are responsi- ble to one main selling association tte United Fruit Companies Al of tie fruit marketed by this organ iiatios is uniformly packed in ac eordance with specific grading rule: and marketed under the. brand o (he central selling body. The de concerning the operating me ttods of the TJnlte-t Fruit Compan- ies (too lengthy to be outlined fcere) are well Worth careful study Their headq-iarters are at Berwick which Is the principal apple ship- ping station. By far the greater portion of Nova i Ecotlau apples is exported to Orea Britain, the principal market being London. In the year 1911, which was a record season, almost .800 barrels of apples were marketed At that time Nova Scotian fruit was Introduced In the Prairie Provinces There is every indication that ship- ments to those markets will be in ereased, Inasmuch as the Graven- itein apple, for which Nova Scotia U famous, matures at a time when apples are in great demand in the Canadian West. A growing trsde Is also being developed with South America and South Africa, corres- ponding geographically to the trade In apples between British Columbia land Australia. St is rather interfiRtins to note Itbai the apple barrel used in Nova Igeolia contains only 96 quarts, as fflparaS wfa the 112 quart barre Ontario... The Canadian Govern call for a minimum of 96 and Nova Scotia nag adopted that minimum. The difference in the size of the two bar- rels must therefore be always taken Into consideration when comparing the prices of Ontario and Nova Scotia apples In any particular mar- ket. .'i. It Is to single ont any variety of apple which is most suc- cessfully grown in Nova Scotia. Several varieties succeed equally well. Undoubtedly the province, is most famous for the Gravensteln, because that variety is grown more extensively in the Annapolis Valley than in any other part of Canada. About 15 per cent of the' apples j marketed in Nova Scotia are Gra- vensteins. It Is a tender, early fall apple, usually harvested between September 10th and 25th. and should under oMlaary Tail's Tete-a-Tete Was Short, But Not Sweet H. F. a cannot speak the French lan- guage?

On the Mr. Asseliu thought it was a good plan to raise a regiment for the defence of; Canada and to send it where that de- fence could best he made. For this thought Col.
