The effect of all this will ; sooner or later be a lowering of the. quality of the fruit and1 its appear ance, and from this point to , the finish i is usually short and certain. ij[t is -interesting to notice that -in the' November sisue of the American' Fruit Grower, just to hand, a con-' tributor, who is said to grow an aver rage of 30,000 bushels of apples per season, John .Chandler, discusses this sane problem from the American, ppint of view, and because of the;' remarkable resemblance of the con 'ditions- to those of Tas...

Burnaby, who explained that at the previous meeting of the coun cil, in reply to a question, the coun cil' clerk stated that if the Wages Board award had been paid to all council employees the municipality would have effected a saving of £200. While he was not altogether in favor of cutting down wages and salaries, it had to be recognised that the award was made by men who were .competent to judge the value of- services, and the council were therefore justified in abiding by their decision.
