"i[i A visit to tlie Skylark camp v.1-1' .nn>-
Hi ply repay a ride over a trail whicli is
badly,obstructed nt I lie present time
by fulli'ii timber, To the nriliiiniy
man not versed lu nilnliiff lctc* ill ivitl
appear tbe most Interesting ono on tlie
mountain, for not only bus for some
time pasl a I'liri'i'iil'ini'ii boon working
on il. (bud tlio ore been steadily shipped
to Ibe stiii'llcr, bul there is .every
chance on tlio completion of the now
wagon road which will pass close lo
Vl-.c(inni Ihal the .mine will be worked on
Hfa a very large scale j as by the cheaper!
Irolghtlng facilities that will then be
offered almost 2li per ceut wlllbeatlded
to the silver value of these proportles,
The principal claims in this camp are
the Skylark, Providence, Defiance, D.
A., Silver King, Crescent, Last Chance,
and the Busshart properties, There
are also uvmi.ivv* Other locations some
of which (,'ive proiiike of rivalling the
wliier claims,
The Skylark was first located on
July 20,1893, by Mr, .Ins, Atwood, the
well known prospector, and bonded on
the 1 of August following to Mr. Howard 0. Walters. At that lime it was
a mere prospect, will) II few small holes
dug in the gramiS, there not even
being a trail to Ibe claim. The Spokane and Great Northern Co. has since
made Ihe trails bulb ways. The bond
was taken up and the final payment
. made a few viouths ago. Fur eight
HA inoiillis UK) feet of the claim was leased
to Messrs. A. N. Syiniinds, ,1. Wallace
and 11. McCarrci.', jvj.io made one shipment of ore to the smelter via Marcus,
which realized $ 15S to Die ton in gold
and  silver.
The lesees sunk one Ul foot shaft
and another 10 fee,!,. The lease expired
Ibis spring and l)/o company commenced their own work on the property on
I'Yliy. 22. They have since sunk another ISO feet from Ihe 50 foot level and
drifted 50 feel north and 25 feel, south
on the vein until April 22, when the
difficulty of getting iu supplies (even
at the high freight rate of ^30 per ton
fr,i;,i)j (fraud Prairiu, stopped work for
a few days. From the first of May,
however, tho company have drifted 2S
feel, further north on Ibe vein in the 50
foot level and opened 100 feel .of sloping ground and extracted and pro-
prepared for shipment 25 tons of ore
carrying an average of 188 oz. of silver
and 1.1 o;/„ of gi;Jd per ton, They have
also planed on the dump Hi tuns of
lower grade rock running 75 nz of silver
and 1 oz gold per ton, In May t<> sks.
(20,420 lbs.) were taken out and shipped
at the rale of U tons per day by pack
train to Marcus at tt cost of $3)perton
lo that point, the actual amount of silver present lieing 1802 oz,, value $1180
(at 00 cents), gold present. 15oz. (at, $111
per oz.) $285, making a total value of
$1171. Before Ibe Iirsl of May nol
more than IJ Ions of ore per day could
be taken out of the mine, bul now that
it is better developed and more men
can be put tn lycrk ten tons of ore per
day can be placed on Ihe dump. The'
mine has paid its own development
from the start, also leaving a net profll
to its owners, Al the pres/iiil time IK
men arc employed iu (he mine and IKI
indirectly. During the post year the
owners have expended over $40,000 in
wages and supplies, a great proportion
of which trade would have been band-
led from Vernon bad the waggon road
construction mil been put oil' lill Ibis
electji n year,
The course of the vein is north and
south, dipping to Ibe Mast at an angle
of nearly forty-live degrees. The ore
chute has been traced on tho surface
for IKI feet, being covered al each end
by n deep gravel wash, it carries from
six to tnvonty-four Inches of well mineralized ore, much being solid grey
copper and sleel galena ivilli ,i liberal
sprinkling of ruby silver. It is a dry
rnasliiig and milling ore carrying nol
to exceed seven per cent of lead in carload lots. Tbe gold and silver value
has been liieivasing sleaijily friiin Ibe
surface to Ibe lowest depth, thu fool
wall stivjik especially increasing ils
gold value, contrary to the ordinary
disposition of high grade silver ores,
carrying in Ihe 50-foot level from U lo
4 oz. gold It) addition |„ ih,. silver value.
When the waggon road reaches Ihe
mine Ibe owners expect to have 50 men
al, work, and to be able to produce from
40 to 60 tons of oro per day ready for
shipniei|t,
A great deal of credit is due to Mr.
Howard 0. Wallers, the president of
the company and managcrof Ibe mine,
for tip: plucky manner in which lie has
" piflvnt)" this and other properties jn
the canip by working them, notwithstanding tlie great fall In silver and
the iiimiy difficulties occasioned by
liteli of freighting facilities, Mr. T.
Uussi.il, mining foreman, also merits a
word of praise for the way in whicli development has been carried on lo the
host advantage.
The Providence was located 111 June,
1802. by Mr. Dirkniaii.n, rnd at ouce
purchased by Mr. JJi'alters, .who sold it
i-lhi month following W l.be Spokane
k Great Die-i'thorn Mining Company,,
It lies on. v lie' ojie-lialf miles north of
the Sl,';;.yj;. .yew Iloiuidiyy creek.
This claim was never GCPSii-o&Ltod, and
ajijieara to have tl series nl i;it'ii parallel
ore seams, all flipping in Ibe n.km'di-
rection, Tbe vein was not discovered
ill place lill June. 1893, Bince $Mq%
dale Ihe eipiivali'i'.! 1* tat"feci, development has bciip. Accomplished, the main
work lieing a 75-fool shaft Several
carloads of ore have teen shipped^
yielding from 288 oz. silver and 5i oz,
gold lo Illl) oz, silver and i oz, of gold
per ioi,i. The Provident* Ihim: heej)
idle since last September by reason of
Inability to get it vvonclng supplies
and therefore working details /o>
ranged, but development will be resinned within the coming month, All
additional vein of dean shipping oi;i;
was discovered lost winter ami uncovered this spring, averaging (assay) 1910
oz. silver and $18 gold per ton, .which
will pay for development,
Between the twoformerpropertiesls
situated Ibe Defiance, also controlled
by Ihe same company, Two shipments
of ore from Ihis claim were made lust
year, yielding respectively 580 and (180
oz. silver and 1.8 and il oz. gold per
Ion. Another shipment is now ready.
Work has not yet been resumed this
spring, owing to the amount of wtefcei
coming iu from Ibe surface, but il is
expected thai it will have drained
away sufficiently within a week or
l.wo lo allow development fo be con.
liiiued. The vein carries an exceedingly rich sulphide of silver ore, much
of the value present occurring iu the
form of uiass.'ve crystals of black unlive
silver, and sjinpiy ,i;"i|uim to Lp slightly roasted to take the fwui of vigin
silver, The vein showed an average of
six inches of clean ore above the 20-foot
level, at which point a fault was encountered, whiel; fle.i;essitates exploration. This will li!' begun und vigorously pushed as soon as possible,
Beyond the Providence, on the west
side of the creek, is another producer,
the D. A., owned by I). A. Holbrook,
of St. Paul, and II, 0, Wallers. It has
a 0-inch vein of ore, similar to thai of
the Prnviacnr.!,, assaying 250 oz. silver
and one to live oz. gold. Development
on this claim has only been begun ,'liis
spring.
The Silver King is a late discovery
by Messrs. Atwood and Wake, which
has been ljondrd by Mr. Wallers, who
is sinking,on it. ll shows the strong.-
es.t silver-bearing vein in the district,
with a.high grade pay streak, yielding
from Ho to 1,21 oz. silver, and three-
tenths oz. gold per Ion, The surface
showing is oyer two feet, Hie hanging
wall not yet located.
The Crescent lies three-quarters of
a mile north-cast of the Skylark and is
owner] by Delincr Bros., Haas k Co,
It has a 2(i-fooi.l,'ail,showinga well inin,
crali/.ed vein carrying very high grade
silver ore.
Immediately west isthcl/isl Chance,
on,))ed by Mr. George Cook, who has
sunk j (0-foot shall on a well-defined
2-foot vein, which assays from00 oz. up,
This property, though perhaps not so
high Hi'.i.lc as some others, promises to
be a large producer when Hie dislrict
obtains bettor mining and freighting
facilities.
On Boundary creek, between the
Providence and the Defiance, Mia L.
Iiossharl lias a group of properties, on,
the most of which a 15 or 20-fnol shaft
has been sunk, the ore ranging from
free milling gold quartz running $17,
lo roasting and milling ore sampling
from 125 lo 21*1 oz. silver per Ion,
There are a gival number of other
promising locations in whal may bo
called Ibe smiic camp. Messrs. Ah
wood, Wake and. Johnson arc working
on Ihe Denver, the northern pKrWision
of Ibe Skylark, crosB-p||tl)llg Ibe sur,

DISTRICT^NOTES.
There is considerable talk of culling
a trail up .Mission (.'reek into the Ket-
tle River,   One existed in early days.
iv.n. Ooutts Majoribanks and Urs.
ilid i.j,i. Hisses Abbott, who have Wuu
staying at Guisacban, returned north
Monday,
Trails will be cut this fall for tbe accommodation of hunting parlies up
Mission Creek and Hydraulic Creek,
which will lead to tbe White Mountain
cariboo country.
Mr. Louis Brent has taken up Mr.
Geo. Rich's well known claim, about
sixteen miles up mission Creek, Mr,
Vernon Staples has taken up another
pre-emption adjoining, also on the
south side of Ihe stream.
By an order in council six new polling places have been established,
one. being at Unci; Creek, Kettle River.
This will obviate Ibe necessity of the
electors having to tramp a number of
miles to some other point lo cast their
votes.
The 12-A.cre lqt on Ihe Shilthson estate Ulr. Labelio purchased, adjoining
the old Talamnntus claim, which was
li wilderness three years ago, is now'
entirely under potatoes and beans, and
has a splendid crop. Such changes as
these area Sure sign that though the
tiiiiijD may be dull, siill the country is
going abend all the .same.
II is claimed by several of Ilie smaller land owners al Ihe Mission, who
are materially interested in irrigation,
that the Irrigation Act needs ttinend-
,i., iii. in many particulars. In the first
place, drainage, as mentioned in the
iicl, means drainage by government
and not' by private parties, which latter comes under the bead of boundary
fences and watercourses. Virtually
Ihe whole Statuto is taken up by
clauses referring to dyking, draining
'and irrigation by commission, The,
only laws applicable ton country liko
the Okanagan are found hi the Laud
Acts, which are very vague and incomplete, it being very hard Lo determine whether a justice of Ihe peace
has or has not the right to settle disputes. The. legislature, next session,
inighl do worse than devote some lime
jo the passing of an act suitable to Ibis
section of Hie country. At present
everyone docs more or less aa be likes,
no record is kept of tlie quantity of
water used, and it is a moral certainly
that there will he considerable litigli
I ini, pi ihe future unless a more plain,
practical and suitable act is passed.

Okanagan Mission Notes.
(I'Voin oiir own correspondent.)
Oiianaoan Mission', July I).—Mr. II,
llayinrr, of Kelowna, is making quick
progress with the erection of Mr. T. \V.
Sterling's residence, adjoining Mr,
Dunilas'properly. 11 will he a handsome, gable-roofed, bungalow, arid will
be completed next mouth,
The inoiil, inli'i'i'sling sight around
Ucnviinlin at present, is Mr, 11. Dell's
hop yard, which covers (ive acres'
Last season Mr. Ddl planted out one
and a half acres of the English cluster
hop, as an experiment, aud tbe crop
proved such a success that he extended
his yard this yeai'to its present size, The
last year's crop was sold in Winnipeg,
and the price obtained was sufficient
lo pay all expenses of plants, planting,
cultivation, etc., and leave a prolil besides, Mr. Dell receiving cash within
thirty days after fhe bops left the yard.
The purchasing firm offered, later on.
after testing the bops, to take more at
a higher figure, Mr. Doll is experimenting with long anil short poles and
is of Ihe opinion that the latter are the
best. Short poles should be leu feet
six inches in length, the lop; being
joined with binder twine Being comparatively loiVj "'" vinos can be much
more easily .sprayed if necessary, and
tlio twine gives ibe lateral branches
more room for growth, 11 is also
claimed that short polos life preferable
on account of the high winds which
prevail during Ihe spring and fall. No
spraying has been necessary so far, 1m
pests of any kind having made their
appearance in the yard.   The only ad
vantage, according to Mi'. Dell, iu Hie
long poles, is thai ■ iillivation can !"■
carried on Ijoth ways: but lias is
seaicely necessary, after the vines have
branched out well from the lop of the
poles. Tile vines also bunch on the
loi'g poles, and are therefore more
difficult to spray; Irrigation has been
found out round hereto bo a distinct
failure, as tbe subsoil is sufficiently
damp, a few rows thai were Irrigated
as an experiment nol having such a
vigorous growth as (lie rest, though
slight irrigation is good lo give the
vines a slarl the Iirsl year. The dry
kiln will be erected mi this farm in
about two weeks, and an experienced
ilryei iployed to cure the hops suitable for tho English market, Mr. Dell
calculates tho cosl of plants al JIM) ami
twine !?."> per acre—calculating 888
plants in ihe acre—seven feet aparl
both ways, one inaleiila.nl ill every
lifty, and three slips to the hill when
planting. He claims that it is best to
plant three slips and to leave two
only to grow. This almost insures
against a hill "missing" entirely, and,
therefore, the necessity of re-plahting,
If a hill dries up and fresh roots are
planted they ripen a month later than
the rest, spoiling the sample by giving
it a green shade. Those practically
interested in the coming industry
would do well to visit Mr, Dell's yard
and pick up more pointers for themselves. The following is the present
year's hop acreage at I he JJ ission ;—

Mr. Knox has also a small experiment ill band, near Kelowna. Last
season $8,000 was paid out in wages to
siwasb pickers; the sum will he increased this year to over $5,000, The
cosl of picking represents about, one-
1 ii'l 11 of Ihe value of the crop, The
through freight rale to Liverpool or
London is II.] cents. Last year II cents
per pound was lost on some of the .Mission hops, owing lo their being badly
colored; There being no local day kiln
was also a great drawbaci.. aa I he hops
sweated when in transit to Vernon.
This season there will be two,
If hop picking is any lest of character the klootchman is of a more saving
nature than Hie noble red man. II
was noticed by those who paid the
hop pickers lnsl season that Ihe
klootchman would change their tickets
I'oi'cash as soon as I hey had picked a
box and save the money, while the
bucks accumulated theirs and gambled
for them when the picking wns over.
Tobacco culture, which is lieing experimented in by Messrs, Knox k Holman near Kelowna, promises In be a
great succoss, The plants are growing
well ami a fair price for the leaf has
already been offored at the coast cigar
factorios, The iirsl .Mission fathers
grew tobacco for over 111) years, Mia
llohnan has had lengthy experience in
thi' traile,
An effort will probably be made Ihis
fall to form a local joint slock com
pa.iv for (he purpose of pulling up a
small fruit cannery al Kelowna, as
local small fruit growers are beginning
to realize that the one ;,t Vernon is
not likoly to benefit llieui very materially.
The tomato crop at, the Mission is
comparatively small ihis year, as former efforts to ship to the coast (owns
, were stopped short by the prohibitive
' freight i ales,
drain crops generally throughout
the Mission valley are very short this
season, except where well irrigated,
The buy and potato crops have, liow-
i ever, never looked heller.

Vernon Notes.
(From our own correspondent)
VEBNON, July I). --As far us returns
received go, il would seem thai tic
whole of ihe Island has declared for
Ihe Government, which would give
Fourteen members, Sofareight constituencies on Ihe .Mainland have been
heard from, wilh tho result that all
are Opposition, If this is correct very
littledoitbl remains thai the Govern-
 nt will bo sustained by a Bmnll majority, Mia Rithet, in hi-; lust appeal
to the electors of Victoria, begged that
Ihe Island would stand solid, and, in
my opinion, this should have been
the Issue -Island versus Mainland—
throughout ihis campaign.
Tho weather is very dry and windy,
with poor crops jusl around here. In
White Valley and the Spalliuiieheeu
the crops are much hotter.
There is every reason In expert now
that tho appeals to the electors in the
remaining ridings by the Opposition
candidates will he far the Mainland lo
elect local men, as on Ihe Island they
are Island lirst, last and always, and if
things do nol. change somewhat,
sooner or later there will be .separation
between the two,
Political Meeting' at Enderby.
(From a Special Correspondent.
On the 27th Juno a meeting was held
here in behalf of Mr. \ union, Mr. A.
L Portuno occupied Ihe chair, and in
a flowing speech told the audience all
about Ilie mosquitoes on his ranch,
and finished his remarks by saying
that as Mr, Vernon was a very clever
man and an old timer, he waa going In
support him,
.Ilia Vernon then loot Ihe platform,
amid a "dead si!,'nee'' very few of his
supporters being present, all la,ugh the
audience numbered over one hundred.
ilr, Veruon spoke for about three
hours, two of winch was devoted In
an explanation of h,,w lo borrow
money al, a low rale of interest, stating
that if he were re I iirned he would consent to the borrowing of any amount,
and so cause good times ill the province,
lie said lie had everything arranged
ou the stock exchange for going ahead
on that policy. He I hen look up tho
question of parliament buildings, but on
being twilled by some of I he audience
on points at Issue,became terribly muddled and continually wandered from
the subject, whereupon Mr, J. % Steele,
otio of his supporters, got up and reminded him rn' hi- subject, but them
was such a loud cry of time and for
Grahum that Mr, Vernon was obliged
to sit down,
Mr, Duval was the nexl lp lake the
platform, amid tremendous applause,
and in a .-peach lasting forty-five liilu
ules, scored a good number of points
against the Government, and before
gelling through had certainly made
some converts,
Mr, Jamos T. Steele (hen undertook
lo champion the Government cause,
stating Ihal, while sitting among tho
audience lie had had a lot of things iu
his head ho wished to say, but was
afraid thai on ascending the platform
he bad left Ills ideas behind. How-
over, gentlemen, said he, drawing comparisons between Mr, Vernon nnd
Mr. Graham, If I wauled a miller
lo run a mill I would get. a man
of experience, or If I wauled to cul
grain I would gel. a good hinder and a
man who understood It,
A vplce—What would you do when
the binder got played out,
Mr. Steele I should al. once get a
new one.
Voice That is just whal. wo are go-
Ing to do; got a now one of ihe Graham type,   Much laughter,
Thus ended Mr. Steele's address.
Mr. Owen, from Mara, then rose,
saying he would like to ask Mr, Vernon some questions, Mr. Owen had
ou gum bonis, and looked rather bashful, so thp audience thotighl there was
801110 fun in .-torn for them, hilt oil his
being called to the platform ho immediately lot those present Bee that ho
was iu full possession of ideas, by lending off on tho subject of Mr. Vernon's
broken cleclion promises of four years
ego, aud oilier mallei's.
Mr. Vernon denied some of llieslale-
nieiils, whereupon Mc. Owen produced
letters from the chief Coiiinilssiouei'
lo himself, and iiskod Mr. Vornon if
he would contradict Ills own writing.
To ibis the honorable gentleman could
not reply. The audience appreciated
the situation by roars of laiighlea, am!
the mooting dispersed with cheers fo,'

Messrs. Stuart k Norris, Fairview, B.C.;
GENTLEMEN—The diseased pear
leaves scul in by you for report have
been injured by the " near leaf blister
mile" (phytoptUB pyrl), This insect
has beconie very wiilesjircad 111 .Canada, and in some places is doing much
inarm. 'Ihis injury, which,' until'if. is.
'Xaniiiieil.  is, as a rule, attributed to
'■heal lacks of so  fungous parasite,,

a microscope, lis life history is briefly
'■is follows: The eggs are laid I.) thej

Later the Jloiihgmites escape through

Avav into ibe tissue and Mart a new
eafl. By this spi'ea.lhio: 'of the young
from the galls in which they have
hatched and Btartlng new ones, the
number of nobs rapidly multiplies,
,The mites live In the galls tjll't&sdry-!
lug of the leaves In autumn. Tlioy
then migrate to the leaf Innlsal tho
ends of the twigs, where llley pass the
'winter beneath the leafy scales. The
remedy which has given the best results Is spraying the trees early in.

Applications made later in ihe season
have been found of little use, as it
seems almost impossible to gel any

Kettj./i River,'July &-0n the 20th
of last month J visited the Jiettle
River school, tjjsdoy Wug sejl apart
for the examination ot pupils. There
was not such a goodly attendance of
parents in on ibe same day of the previous year, bul this was accounted for
by the work having started on the
Kettle River'road,
There was not so much chic and
superficial array as was the case at.
the previous exatnipjitton, but the
matter of fact management of the
affair disclosed more ground work and
a greater advancement in c.11 departments than one Who had attended the
year before would have looked for.
The number of pupils on t|)u roll is
twenty-six, but judging from local
statistics, that inutbcT will be supplemented by ten or more pest season,
and, unless better and more accomodation is forthcoming, ;iil,»,r tin, major
porlinuj'f thnin.ivill havo to sjloji their
heels.
Dancing seems fo be in vogue at
present. First at Boundary, then at
Midway, am} to-inoiriny' at Grand
Forks. Surely the good folk of the
lower country are gnjng the pace.
What with llieir racecourse committees, the opening of new hotels,
saloons 'dare I say?), churcjies, the
blowing il whistles, and tlie pnnde-
iiKiiiom if road .work, bridge settlements, opposition and government
arguments, no wonder the docile cay-
use sonjetimes hjsc.s ils reason and
makes a holt of ij» JScjio.
