Look out for Brown Rot.
People In tlie Okanagan and Kettle
River dislricls who are Interested In
the fi nil, industry, and lhey are many,
will do well lo watch carefully for the
Iirsl signs of a disease which is growing
very destructive In some parts of
British Coluuiliia, more especially nn
the lower mainland, The disease is
knnwn as Blown Hot (Monlllti Fructl-
genu) und it attacks plums, prunes
cherries and in fact all slum: fruits.
Tin* committee of the board of horti-
(culture to wlisiui was relegated Ills*
task of eqtilrlng Inlo, and reporting
i upon the disease, very lucidly explains
It iu tbe following words, at Ihe same
lime offering suggest'uns for its pre*
vi'iiiiun.  The report says i
llrown Rot (iMuulliii I'ructigcmi) al-
feels all kinds ut stone fruits, and i.s
well knnw In the eastern provinces he-
sides tbe states of Oregon ami Washington and British Columbia, causing
more or less loss, as the seasons are
favorable to lls development or otherwise, Warm,moist weather at the thue
llie fruil is about lull-grown, "ill al-
most certainly develop Ihc disease lo a
vi'iy large exlenl. ill dislricls sulijeel
to Its attacks, when measures uf a pie-
venial Ive nature have been neglected,
and cause lhe loss of a large pnrl ion of
lhe crop,
Tin'ash-eoloi'i'il, velvety coating or
mould seen on plums Infested with lhe
disease, shows Ihe final or fruit ing
stage of development, If examined
wilh a pocket lens, this mould will be
seen tu consist 'it numerous tufts of
minute thread-like projections, and if
further exiiiniiii-d under a common
microscope, will lie seen Ibal each of
llsi's,' "nsii,nls* threads" is composed of
a number of small oval bodies joined
end lo end like a String of heads.
These bead-like bodies are the spores
of Ihe fungus, and each infected ft ull
is capable of producing them in thousands,
Those spores may ronialn unchanged
for a greai length nf Iluie, or on the
.silier build, lhey may when conditions
are favoroble in ihem, germinate and
grow so rapidly Hull Infected frull Boon
becomes capable of producing fresh
crops of spores. Through the agency
of winds, Insects, etc., spores are ilis-
tiibuled widely, and when one nf them
luslgs's on a fruit sufilaieiilly soft, and
'.1 ban ninlslure is present, it Blurts the
disease again, sends uut a geiininaling
lube which penetrates lhe skin of the
fruit; lien' It, grows rapidly, branching
through Ihe pulp In all directions forming adense mass of inies'liuin, which
absorbs the contents of the cells of the
fruit, disorganizing the tissues and
causing llie so called "brown rnl,"
Infected fn.ll lirst, lurns brown in
spots, which gradually enlarge, until
the whole I'mi! becomes blown and
last I en, and iu its turn becomes covered
with fruiting spores,
The mycelium or plant body of lhe
fungus remains dormanl dining the
winter in the dried or mummied plums
v.hicli are Is ft, on Irees infected wilh
the disease, oi'ion Ibe ground beneath
them, and when warm weather comes
the following season will produce an
sbunslatil crop sif spores lo slsirl in-
fed ion afresh.

the department, while the cost of initio*

time there are but (18 clerks employed
and the expenses of tbe last fiscal year
were. $113,513, In other words the stall'
lias been reduced h> nearly 30 per cent.
Such too is the record of the Post
Office Department, the Department of

every oilier bruuch of the service,
livery dollar of the public money is
being judiciously spent and while the
um total of expenditure hus not been

incalculably advanced within the last
two years. Expenditure and extravagance are not, synonymous words.

announcement of the changes hi the

been issued by the department. There
is nothing therein of wide spread in-
trest, lhe changes have to dss principally with commercial details Everyone is now aware Imperial penny postage rate will c ime inlo operation on
Christmas Day, when the rate will be
dropped frnni live s-ssiiU Its two cents
per half ounce, upon all letters passing
between Canada and the United Kingdom, Brilisli India, Newfoundland and
various points in llriiish Africa. It
should be bourne in mind thai this: rate
is per half ounce and not per ounce;
the domestic postage rate's Ihree cents
per ounce, tho foreign rate has lieen
lies' cents per half ounce and will now
be tuts cents per half ounce. The
difference should he borne in mind, as
want of attention to this simple mat-
tec has caused many an over charge lis

adjournment for the work of completing details it i*> confidently believed by
all who are not irredeeniibly pessimistic that definite results will soon be

failure lor the actual probabilities, and
declare accordingly that irreconcilable
differences exist. There is happily mil,
one iota of credible evidence that, sueh

able to judge of Ihe silnation take ex-
actly the opposite view, it was recognized from lbs' lirst that each
country must and did approach the

A Big Platinum Find.
Tim Spokesman Review is authority
for tlie stateuient that no enormous
ledge currying platinum has been discovered on Mad river in Okanagan
county in Washington territory. Referring to the lind it says ;
"On Mad river iu Okanogan county u
discovcryhas heen made which, if il
proves tojlie all that tests so far made
indicators the most important event
in the history of milling in Washington, It is reported that, a great ledge
of remarkably rich platinum ore lias
been found unil thai tests prove it lo
be of immense value. ('. II. Aldin

THEADVANf-l?
LOCAL AM) DISTRICT.
Mr. Wichiiiaii, our local tiinsurial
artist, has moved Into hin new premises
next door to the townsite olliee, on
Fifth sl reel.
Mrs, W. Davis and family, accompanied liy her mother, left a few days
ago fnr Northport, Wash., at which
place they will all spend the balance of
the winter.
Mr. II, T. Wildgress, the 0, P, li.
right-of-way agent, Mr, l'\ J* Filllio.
cane manager ot the Dunk uf Montreal,
Greenwood, and Mr, Pearce of Rossland, Were in town mi Saturday lasl.
Mr. Blaze, one ot onr local contrac.
tors, contemplates the erection of a
business lilnck on bis lots on Fifth
street, early in tlie spring. The liuililing will be 25x01) feet and twu storeys,
Mr. H. Oameron, owner of some of
the prominent Oamp McKinney milling properties, spent a day or two in
town during the past week, having
conic down from the camp on Wednesday last.
That horrible disease which tlie
Grand Forks Miner designates ''green
eye" seems to have emigrated to this
Bide of Boundary mountain, as witness
the remai ks of the Midway correspondent ill the News Advertiser, re the
Sullivan property, recetitlv purchased
hy a syndicate of Midway capitalists.
In ani loipal Ion of a bin huilding boom
next summer, local saw-mill proprietors are figuring on getting out Iwo
or three millions of feat of logs during
the winter, liis pleasant to contemplate I hat there will be no dearth of
lumber next year, a state of affairs
which will certainly be conducive to
the up building of the town.
A Toronto Syndicate, represented by
Mr. Richard Armstrong, purchased
the townsite of Grand Forksaiiil much
adjoining land, a few days agJ. As a
result, the Grand Forks Miner predicts
that Its town will he one of great im
portance in the near future, It is sin
eerily tu be huped the Miner's expec-
tntiuns will be amply fnllilled.
The people of Greenwood are to enjoy llle distinction of having a first
class skating rink this winier, us Mr.
Geo, Guess lias undertaken to provide
them wilh iln* same, The rink will lie
7^x160 feet, and in connection with il
will lie reception rooms fur Iiuth ladies
ami gentlemen, also a refreshment
pavilion. Skating carnivals will be
held at stated periodsdurlng the course
of tlie winter,
Saving finished his contract, under
which he Iniill. about 2(1 miles of a
heavy mountain vvagiin road, iu the
Knolenay near Yuiir, Mr. Glaze returned io Midway on Saturday last,
Questioned as tn the milling and Inisiuess outlook iii Ihe Kootenay, Mr.
Glaze said iI is very promising, as the
cnuntry is gradually being opened up
by railways, and every facility provided for the expeditious transaction
of business. Mr.'Glaze leaves ln a few
days fur Cascade Oil y, at which poinl
he expects soon tu secure a contract
fur a heavy piece nf work.
A very enjoyable dance was held in
the town hull at Anaconda nn Wednesday evening last, the event being in
commemoration of Thanksgiving Day
A large number of people were pres
ent, and from some who attended il is
learned that an extremely pleasant
evening was spent. At midnight all
present adjourned to the Palace Hotel,
and there enjoyed a splendid repast,
their wants lieing catered to liy the
new proprietors uf Lliis well known
and excellent hostelry. Many friends
frnni Greenwnod. Miilwa} and other
points, contributed to the number
present,
TheC. P. 11, surveyors who aboul
a week agu went op the Kellle river,
are at present camped al the mouth of
Beaver creek a northern tributary of
the west fnrk. From Ihis point they
will work in dlffeaent directions, their
ultimate object being to reach llu*
Okanagan valley eilher by way of
McLean nr Penticton creeks, Those
who seem lo know something ahoul
the matter claim thai the I!. I'. It, will
push on tn Pentieton by this route
during the coming summer. The very
energetic way in which llie survey is
lieing carried no certainly lends color
to this assertion,
Mr. W, 11. Megaw, of Vernon, passed
through town on Thursday's stage to
Penticton. Mr. Megaw has been paying a visit to Grand Forks, where he
hns a branch of his liusiness, and also
to Spokane. Referring to Mr.Megaw's
visit to Spokane, a paper of that city
evolved the following. "W. it. Mc-
Gaw, whu has been conducting a
general store at Greenwuud City IJ. C.
has opened a branch at Vernon, B, C.
He was in the city recently and purchased most of liis opening stuck here."
That he has opened a branch of his
Greenwnnd business at Vernon, will be
news even to Mr, Megaw.
ll is snid the Kelowna Shippers
Union contemplate moving iheir cigar
industry from Kelowna lo New Wesl-
lliilister, Should such a step be taken,
it will he for the purpose no doubt
bringing Ihe industry nearer to thi'
principal market fur llie goods.   Many
will regret this Industry lieing  veil
away from Kelowna, so soon afler it
establishment lliere, hut it is evidently
the duty of the directors ot the ahove
organization lo protect their own nest
Interests, Shuuld Iiu* step be laken it
b tu In* hoped it uill nol. Interfere with
tobacco culture iu tbe Okanagan Mission valley, and I hare is lillle reason tu
lielieve lhat il wuuld, as the raw
material could easily be shipped tu tin*
factory,
Now that the Hank nf Halifax has
opened a branch at Grand Forks, il
will not be sale for the Boundary ('reek
Tillies tu ret'i r to banking matters al
llial, pninl, nr it will be accused nf having again contracted that dreadful
disease "green eye." Grand Forks is
tu be congratulated upon being able to
give tu the world such an evidence of
prospcrit) as that afforded by the
establishment of a chartered bank.
''Mid-way's turn will come." anil then
wi'l be fulfilled the prophesy of the
great father of the town who
luilh no more than one occasion made
use of this expression.
CAMP HcKINNEY NOTES.
(From our own comsspissidcisl.)
A great change has taken place in
the business and mining outlook of llie
camp during the past few weeks. The
apathy of Ihe residents has been succeeded liy a cheerfulness which has
positively affected even the oldest of
the old timers. There is scarcely an
idle inan in camp and Ihere is nn ex-
ceplional demand for labor, the number nf men employed having mure than
doubled during the last month. This
very gratifying change is due to the
re-nrganr/alion uf Ihe old Cariboo company, tiie very opportune strike in the
Waterloo and the bonding of the
Sailor by some energetic Greenwood

Of the work
the Cariboo it
only need he said that under the utile
management of ihe old superintendent Mr. .1. T. Keane, development work
is going ahead, while Ihe 20-sUimp mill
s kept wall supplied with ore.
'IniheWiilerl Superintendent Murphy has one of the liesl working slust'ls
evei'siink 111 the cninp. I tis now down 55
feet iu a line body of siilphurel ore, the
vein heing from six to seven feet in
width, During tiie sinking,hunches of
free gold ore have been met with,
showing sssme exceedingly rich specimen?. An idea of lhe value of lhe ore
body may he gained from the results
of three assays made by Major Megraw,
nplo No. 1, taken from the footwall
SjlS.l2ll.UI, sample No. 2, aboul 25 feet
down and showing uu mineral, $5.70,
sample No.'.]. laken as average of vein
it 52 feet, $112.20 to lhe (oo. The slock
in lllis properly is selling at aliout III
centsor ibe par value.
The new owners nf tlle
Sailor have a thirty-foot shaft on
iheir vein, which is from 4 to 5 feet in
width of high grade solphuret ore.
Some of the samples .being su similar
tn Cariboo ore, that the general opinion
Is that the Sailor is on extension of
that famous claim, Some locations in
lhe vicinity nf the Sailor and Waterloo
have recently changed hands. These
deals would appeal to have resull ed
from (he posilion of Ihese properties,
as in common with many other locations in (he camp, the axe mark on
Ihe slakes is the only evidence of the
handiwork of inan. On lhe Sancho
cluim, Messrs. limes and Itaby are
sinking u shaft, which il. is there intention, to put down 50 feet at leasl
this winter. They recently refused a
very tempting bonding offer. This is
lha claim from which some very rich
fre" gold specimens were taken lasl
summer and exhibited in Midway.
There is a rumor In camp Ihal Mr.II.
Cameron is In treaty for the sale of the
Fonlenoy, This claim is rightly looked
upon as one of the leading propertli
of lhe camp as In addition to a
strong noilh and south vein, in which
is un 80-foot shaft, it also has the easterly and westerly Waterloo vein, Ihe
side line of the Fonlenoy being only
(10 feet, east of lhe Waterloo shaft,
Mr.Sydney Johnson P.L.S.jsin charge
of a party surveying claims and on
completion of lliis work will proceed lo
lay oul ihe new townsite ou ihe Sailor

driven on this vein from which ore is
heing taken, On the same property is
a larger vein (quartz) carrying galena
ami pyrites,
The " (i. A. ti." has a 80-fool shaft
sunk on a 2-foot vein, heavily mineralized with an intimate mixture of Iron
and copper pyrites, galena, blende and
sllverglance, TheHnestpiecesofwtreBil-
verfiniiiil onBoiindaryOreok were taken
from this shaft, Avetage assays from
different places ncrosa the vein gave

gold and 160 ozs. silver and one, the
latest return-$l,i.Ou gold and 1IMI 1-5
ozs. silver per ton.
On tlie "llig Ledge" is a 10-foot
quarlz vein, mineralized with lion
pyrites. This vein has heen opened
up hy cross-cuts on fhe surface fn-500
feet. A narrower vein lias heen
opened up, lieing une foot wide, carrying considerable enpper pyrilei, and
runs inlo the main ledge as a spur, on

Tln*'"0.fB." has two distinct veins i
one 25,feet wide which, from its strike
nml general character would seem lo
be the same vein as that oil lhe Big

The "second vein has at present a
width of nearly three feet. Assays
have shown values in gold from $4.00

iiigt.liy Mr. S. S. Fowler, M. E. gave
$20.00 in gold.

$-10.41 for all values,
The "Fred D,"was located In De
eeiiibei',51806, more as ground for a
Imsis for mining operations for the
olher claims than for ils present value,
although Ihere is little dnuhl thut the
large vein im IheO. B. runs through
It. There is a small vein of galena oil
Ihlsclai'n.
The "S. F." lies letweed the ii. A. ti
